Pair of fires keep Oak Bay crews busy Playground melts to the ground; home damaged Brittany Lee News staff

A home in the 1000-block of Roslyn Rd. in Oak Bay caught fire Tuesday night (July 17). The Oak Bay fire department responded to the call just after 9 p.m. and quickly extinguished the attic fire, despite access problems, said Dave Cockle, Oak Bay deputy fire chief. When the crew arrived, smoke was coming from the eaves of the roof, he said. The fire appears to be accidental, and caused about $20,000 worth of damage to the house, Cockle estimated. A fire crew from Victoria assisted in putting out the flames, he added. A separate incident last week closed a section of the water park near Carnarvon Park after an early morning fire last Tuesday. The Oak Bay fire department received a call before 7 a.m. on July 10 from public works notifying them that the pirate ship at Peter Pan water park was burning. “When our guys got there, we pretty much just cooled down some melted plastic, because that’s about all that was left,” said Cockle. “Unfortunately, the kids are without the playground for a little while until we can get it built again and put back in place.” The equipment should be replaced within a few weeks, he said. The cost of the damage is unknown as is the cause of the fire, which is currently under investigation by Oak Bay police. However, Cockle added, it does appear suspicious. reporter@vicnews.com

T

he Ted Harrison Studio is slated to close at the end of August, displacing the taxidermy raven that reminds Harrison of his years in the Yukon. As the end nears, there are plans for the remaining artwork. “We’ll do some donations. We’re looking to send a lot of the product to the Ted Harrison Retreat,” studio manager Kaitlyn Webb Patience said. “We’re hoping to continue to sell the prints online. There has to be some sort of outlet for his work. I think people would be very disappointed if there wasn’t.”

Famed Canadian artist to close Oak Bay studio Christine van Reeuwyk Ted Harrison raises a hand with welcome in his eyes and a “pleasure to meet you” as Kaitlyn Webb Patience offers to make some tea. “I always welcome a cup of tea,” the popular Canadian artist says as Webb Patience, the studio manager, places a hot cup on a tray in front of him. She’s new to the role, replacing long-time studio manager Lillie Louise Major – perhaps it’s why she neglected to have cookies on Video hand. A fan of online a good cookie, This story has Harrison doesn’t take his accompanying video disappointment at oakbaynews.com. out on her, but sips from the mug featuring Yukon lore that she’s set on a bright cloth on the tray in front of him. “(When) this place closes I want my cup back,” he tells her. The small space filled with bright colours on The Ave will close at the end of August, but with a little fanfare. And another visit from the man himself. “It’s always been a passion project,” Webb Patience gestures to the space that has shown Harrison’s work for the past six years. “What has to be must be,” says the iconic artist who turns 86 on Aug. 28. “You can’t fight what’s necessary.” Though he came to Oak Bay nearly 20 years ago, in 1993, the studio waited until six years ago. There, fans from near and far would come and watch him work. “People like to watch artists paint. The artist becomes part of the scene,” he says. Although it’s not one of his favourite things. “I don’t particularly like to be

He moved to the Saanich residence recently and trips to the studio dropped once he left Oak Bay, prompting the closure. “I don’t do a lot (of painting),” he says. “It depends on the opportunity and the mood.” Harrison is known for his colourful depictions of the Yukon – where he spent two decades – and the Pacific Northwest where he spent the past two decades. At the height of his work he could paint an image a day, but “it’s not about speed,” he says. “(It’s) competence.” Though the studio is set to close, Harrison plans to remain in the area. “I like painting anywhere,” he says. “I think Victoria is a beautiful place to live. I like Victoria because it’s a very open community. People accept you.” Fans and friends can say goodbye to the studio, and hello to Harrison on Aug. 9 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the studio, 2004 Oak Bay Ave. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

Strata - Depreciation Reports Summertime is here… enjoy every moment. Paulette Marsollier We have experienced significant change to our Strata Property Act and are beginning to see the actual changes come into effect. Strata corporations are researching, reviewing, listening and beginning to get their estimates for Depreciation Reports (DR) with several already completed. I have attended and been involved in several seminars and panel discussions regarding the DR with engineers, property management companies, realtors and lawyers with public attendance at record numbers preparing for the impending change. I find most are realizing that they must move forward so as not to experience a negative impact when being compared by the public to another complex that has had their DR completed and their deferred work in progress. I have worked with the DR or Reserve Fund Study in Alberta since 2000 and it does have everyone looking at Common Property, Contingency Funds and Disclosure in a whole new way. Certainly from a more educated and informed perspective. We will experience the same shift in thinking in a buyer’s approach as these reports become available in BC and without the DR and disclosure; guesswork or holdbacks will be occurring until a clear understanding of the common property status is established. If you have questions or require information regarding these issues please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, Paulette Marsollier pmarsollier@sothebysrealty.ca

A deer rests under an apple tree in the backyard of a house on Byron Street. Oak Bay parks is considering use of a repellent to keep deer out of Windsor Park.

Repellant option for deer Repellant will be applied in rose garden at Windsor Park, if necessary Brittany Lee News staff

While the Capital Regional District’s deer advisory group continues to evaluate possible deer strategies, Oak Bay is considering the use of a deer repellant in a local park. Oak Bay parks is currently monitoring the amount of deer munching on roses at Windsor Park and may start using a deer repellant, known as Bobbex, in the rose garden. “We’re monitoring things right

now and, if need be, we will use a product,” said Chris Hyde-Lay, Oak Bay’s manager of parks services. “But as of right now, we have not used any.” Hyde-Lay noted that there have been problems with deer in the rose garden in the past, but right now the situation seems “pretty good.” If and when Oak Bay parks decides to apply the repellant in the rose garden, as little as possible would be used, he said. Bobbex makes plants less appealing to deer by adding a

protein taste and odor to them – it’s made of ingredients such as meat meal, fish oil, eggs and garlic. It’s most effective on new growth and each application lasts about eight weeks, HydeLay said. A deer management strategy report from the citizen’s advisory group (CAG) to the CRD’s planning, transportation, and protective services committee is expected in August. A final report to the CRD board is expected in September. For more information about the CAG go to crd.bc.ca/deermanagement. reporter@vicnews.com

Locally developed transmitter locates missing elderly woman Project Life Saver available at no cost Daniel Palmer News staff

Local technology is being credited for the safe return of an elderly dementia patient after she wandered away from a Victoria assisted living residence. Project Life Saver uses a locally manufactured transmitter to locate missing persons with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The transmitter is about the size of a wristwatch and emits a signal that allows local search and rescue teams to easily locate individuals who have a tendency to wander. On July 10, Canadian Coast Guard Auxiliary Pacific search and rescue received a call about the missing woman and located her, unharmed, within 40 minutes. “About 59 per cent of persons with dementia wander off, and of those, 72 per cent will do it repeatedly,” said Marjorie Moulton, executive director of We Rage, We Weep Alzheimer Foundation, which offers Project Life Saver at no charge to Greater Victoria residents.

Car Insurance. Protect yourself from smash and grab thieves. Summer is here again, and you’ll probably find you’re using the car more, for going on road trips, or camping or a day jaunt to your favourite beach. Naturally, items like sunglasses, camping gear, shopping bags and cell phones for example also find their way into your vehicle. But what happens when you get back to your car from a day of fun and find the window shattered, the door forced and items are missing. If this happens, what’s covered by car insurance and what is not? While your car insurance covers many things, it usually does not extend to loss of your personal contents in the car. In addition to losing your personal property, a break-in can leave you with the hassle and expense of fixing damages such as broken window glass, typical with a break-in. If you claim against your car insurance, you’ll be paying the Comprehensive deductible. But if personal items have been stolen from your vehicle, your deductibles may not end there. Goods such as cameras, sporting equipment and clothing are usually covered under your home insurance policy, not your car insurance. You would be required to make two separate claims, one on your car insurance and the other on your home insurance. Typical deductibles on car insurance can range from $300 to $500, while $500 is the standard on home insurance. A car break in can cost you, the

insured, $1,000 in deductibles and the hassle of making two separate claims. The good news is that there are now some optional car insurance policies offering unique solutions, like the Smash and Grab coverage that can be added to BCAA’s Optional Car Insurance. The Smash and Grab coverage waives the glass deductible on all glass claims and covers your personal property up to $500, again with no deductible. Of course, prevention is always better than cure, so try and avoid making yourself an easy target by giving thieves a reason to break into your car. Keep valuable items hidden from view, or better yet keep them locked up in the trunk when you’re away from your car. You should also always ensure you lock the doors and roll up all the windows before you leave. The next time your car insurance is up for renewal, speak to a BCAA Car Insurance specialist. They’ll assess your needs and help find the options that are right for you. Marci-Lyn Braithwaite is an Insurance Specialist with BCAA. She can be reached at marci-lyn.braithwaite@bcaa.com.

Municipalities now have to agree on a funding model Daniel Palmer News staff

Local governments in Greater Victoria will soon begin negotiations to fund the $281 million needed to complete the most expensive capital expenditure project in the region’s history. The Capital Regional District’s $782-million secondary sewage treatment program is set to begin development at the beginning of 2013 and will end the dumping of raw sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. To pay for the project, Greater Victoria residents may see an increase in annual property taxes between $200 to $500, or a jump in water utility bills, depending on the jurisdiction. The seven affected municipalities will need to agree on a funding model before work can begin. Saanich Mayor Frank Leonard said paying for a regional sewage treatment upgrade through property tax increases may be unfair to residents who minimize their wastewater. “If we go to the property tax model, then the University of Victoria and the two Camosun Colleges wouldn’t pay their share,” Leonard said. By linking the increased fee to water utilities, properties with septic systems would also be exempt from paying for sewage services they don’t use, Leonard said. Oak Bay Mayor Nils Jensen said there are two funding issues. “The question will be how to determine how to apportion the maintenance costs, the day-today operation and how to apportion the capital costs – both are

OUR VIEW

Tsunami cleanup readiness crucial Coastal authorities in B.C., including those in the Capital Region, have long been putting together tsunami and earthquake preparedness plans. But the need is growing greater for the three levels of government to have a definite plan in place to deal with potentially environmentally dangerous debris from last year’s earthquake and tsunami in Japan washing up on B.C. coastlines. Items ripped apart by the powerful waves, much of them covered with sea life that could threaten native species, have for months been arriving on the western shorelines of Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii. Residents and others concerned about threats to the pristine nature of coastal areas have been doing their best to remove the material. No one knows, given the unpredictable nature of ocean currents, just how much flotsam will reach B.C. shores in the coming months and years. But enough has arrived already to inform provincial and federal authorities of the extent of the problem. The province is in a “fact-gathering stage” on the issue, said Environment Minister Terry Lake, who last week toured Haida Gwaii. His comments that any cleanup plan must be a joint effort between local, provincial and federal governments and First Nations make sense, but indicate the province is not willing to take the lead on tackling this problem. When a Harley-Davidson motorcycle in a packing crate washed up on a Haida Gwaii beach in April, and its owner, who had lost three family members and his home in the disaster, was located, it was a bittersweet story. But the washing ashore of a 20-metre concrete and steel dock in Oregon on June 6 was a further sign that the worst is likely yet to come. This week’s shockingly low cleanup grant of $50,000 from the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, for each of the five states affected, shows how low this issue is on that government’s priority list. We hope our federal government, already showing a similar lack of respect for the environment through budget cuts, does not take a similar tack by downplaying this serious issue. What do you think?

Board, and that it would be Second, it is clear that this subject to federal environmental contribution to the capital costs assessments. of wastewater treatment will be These conditions seem

reasonable enough, but their effect may yet be road blocks to a federal financial contribution. Consider the requirement for Treasury Board approval. The role of Treasury Board is to ensure “efficiency, effectiveness, and ongoing value for money.” Treasury Board approval will require a detailed cost/benefit analysis of the project, a detailed examination of the disadvantages and advantages of the project and an evaluation of alternative ways of achieving the objectives by some other means – including the existing natural system that is in place today. If Treasury Board does its usual thorough job, the CRD plan is unlikely to pass the test. No detailed cost/benefit analysis for example, has yet been done. If Treasury Board experts do one, the results are unlikely to favour what the CRD is proposing. The second off-ramp that could derail the federal financial contribution is the federal environmental assessment. The

CRD has declared that the current system is detrimental to our local waters and the proposed system will improve the quality of the local marine environment. But the claim is just that, a claim. It has not been supported by independent studies, the majority of which say exactly the opposite. Further, it is contradicted by 10 University of Victoria experts in the fields of oceanography, marine biology and engineering, who took the unusual step of signing a letter pointing out that on balance, there are no net environmental benefits from the proposal. Equally damaging to the CRD case is that six current and former public health officers for the area have publicly pointed out that in their expert judgment, there are, on balance, no net health benefits from the proposal. In fact, since details of the plan have been put forward, it has become clear that the greenhouse gas impact of the proposal is substantial, and other environmental and even health

impacts are more significant than anticipated. Once again, on environmental and health grounds, the current system appears to be substantially superior to what is being proposed, a fact that a serious federal environmental impact assessment will almost certainly demonstrate. Of course, the federal cabinet could change the rules yet again, and provide the money regardless of environmental impact or of a cost/benefit analysis. But don’t count on it. At present, the federal contribution to the CRD’s proposed on-land wastewater treatment system appears a long way from being in the bank. Former Victoria MP David Anderson served for 10 years in the federal cabinet of Jean Chrétien, when he was a member of Treasury Board and the minister responsible for the Environmental Assessment Agency. He was also the minister responsible for the Infrastructure Program in British Columbia.

LETTERS Affluent effluent too rich for Colwood majority It about time Colwood city council takes a courageous stand and protects residents from this sewage treatment funding idiocy initiated by the Friends of Mr Floatie. Currently, the majority of Colwood ratepayers are wholly responsible for our own sewage treatment. We own, operate and maintain highly efficient septic systems, and we’ll do so well into the foreseeable future. Why anyone in their right mind would hold the opinion that septic system owners should face a potentially massive tax increase to support a system that we will never be connected to is staggering. Coun. Judith Cullington says, “(We’ll) look at opportunities for smaller, localized treatment plants and kind of address new development as it comes on board. That’s certainly not a done decision, but that’s certainly what we heard from people.” My question to Cullington, why isn’t this a done decision? Let the sewage system users and future developers pay for any projected increase in capacity. It’s their issue. Their affluent effluent is far too rich for the rest of us. Mike McBride Colwood

Discharging sewage to sea still the CRD’s best option Re: Government funds in, sewage project moving ahead (News, July 18) So the funds have been found to perpetrate the crime. Building a land-based sewage treatment

plant is nothing less, for it uses a law intended to protect the environment to almost certainly do it harm. There is no point in the scientists and medical health officers devoting their lives to science and medicine; more note is taken of economists. Fifty years of research on three continents is being ignored, but it is the trashing of lives that is most sickening. The cost-benefit is being ignored. How many lives could be saved in medicine, or how much benefit could be accrued in education with the use of upwards of a billion dollars? I finish with one of many quotes from my book, Victoria’s Sewage Circus. UK Royal Commission on environmental pollution, 1984: “With well-designed sewage outfalls, we believe that discharge to the sea is not only acceptable, but in cases environmentally preferable.” Nowhere are conditions better than here. Ted Dew-Jones Victoria

Sewage resource recovery cancels out greenhouse gases Re: Victoria braces for the big flush (Our View, July 18) Your view totally misses the most important issue that an additional, landbased sewage treatment plant is just not needed in Victoria. Several scientists are rightfully skeptical that this sewage treatment plant will provide any measurable improvement in the health of Juan de Fuca Strait. Such a land-based plant, besides costing so much to build and operate, is only

attempting resource recovery because a land-based sewage treatment produces thousands of tonnes of greenhouse gases and sewage sludge – which is not produced by our current marine-based system. Spending even more taxpayer funds to try to reduce the impact of the greenhouse gases and sludge is just not a sustainable approach, when our marine environment can perform its current ecological service as marine treatment of sewage very adequately. John Newcomb Saanich

Disaster awaits if oil tanker suffers mishap Re: West Coast in capable hands (News, July 11) Our West Coast may be in good hands from the Navy’s perspective, but if a supertanker loaded with the proposed pipelines’ tar sands oil runs aground, the situation will be like a mouse trying to direct a herd of elephants. The only real protection is to see that this insane scheme never happens. Robert McInnes Victoria

Lack of kudos for Clark telling from retiring MLA Re: MLA Murray Coell’s retirement After 16 years of service in the provincial legislature, Murray Coell has decided to retire on his gold-plated pension of approximately $89,000 per year. During his retirement interview, he described his boss, Premier Christy Clark, as a person who is, “full of life and full of

energy and a great campaigner.” I found it unusual that he didn’t feel it was necessary to expand on her leadership qualities and capabilities as leader of the Liberal Party and premier of our province. He probably has his own reasons. Most politicians claim they are retiring so they will be able to spend “more time with their families.” We all know it’s for the “the kids” and for “all the families” in the province, don’t we?

rashes won’t be the end of Ryder Hesjedal. The great Canadian cyclist may be out of the Tour de France, but that’s all behind him now. With the Olympics looming, Hesjedal is still recovering from a brutal fall during Stage 6 that forced him to withdraw from the Tour on July 6. It’s a balance of rest, precaution and training, as Hesjedal completes a quick turnaround to ready himself for the London Olympics, where he’ll represent Canada in the 250-kilometre road race on July 28 and in the 44-km time trial on Aug. 1. The 2012 Giro d’Italia winner is eyeing a podium finish in the Olympics, and he’s expected to improve on his 2008 results – 16th in the time trial and 54th in the road race. Hesjedal wore the maple leaf at the 2004 Games as a mountain biker but didn’t complete the race due to a flat tire. Even before he won the Giro in May, Hesjedal said he wanted to represent Canada in the Olympics, a statement he reiterated after the fateful July 6 crash. “It’s very disappointing to leave the (Tour de France) that way … I was in good form and feeling comfortable,” said Hesjedal, a native of the West Shore. “I’ll keep working with the medical staff on my recovery, and re-focus everything on the Olympics.” Until the crash, Hesjedal was in the hunt for the Tour lead, and had avoided the crashes and pile-ups that set him back in the 2011 Tour. But the bad luck returned. Regardless, Hesjedal now moves from Tour contender to a medal hopeful at the Olympics. Instead of worrying about the mighty Alps, Hesjedal is eyeing up the 2.5-km, 4.9-per-cent incline of Zig Zag Road, the most challenging section of London’s road course. To challenge riders, Zig Zag will be done repetitively, part of the 15-km Box Hill loop. Cyclists will bike 70-km one way to the entrance of the Box Hill loop and complete it nine times, and then do a one-way, 42-km route back into London. sports@vicnews.com

International artists test Victoria pipes The Victoria Centre of the Royal Canadian College of Organists’s Pipes Around the Pacific 2010 festival garnered such enthusiasm for Victoria’s organ venues and the music heard within them, that the decision was easily made to present subsequent festivals. Next week three of the world’s finest concert organists will arrive in Victoria, offering the opportunity to hear brilliant performances on each of the city’s three largest pipe organs. Wednesday, July 25, Ameri-

can organist Peter Richard Conte will play Alix Goolden Hall’s historic 1910 Casavant instrument. Conte is Grand Court Organist of the world famous Wanamaker Organ at Macy’s Philadelphia department store. It’s the largest fully functioning musical instrument in the world. In addition to his concert career, he serves as Choirmaster and Organist of St. Clement’s Church, Philadelphia. Thursday, July 26, Canadian native David Enlow per-

forms on St. John the Divine’s remarkable 1961 Casavant. He is Organist and Choir Master of the Church of the Resurrection in New York City. Friday, July 27, the final festival concert will feature Montreal organist Isabelle Demers at the magnificent 2005 Helmuth Wolff organ of Christ Church Cathedral. The public is invited to come and enjoy three wonderful musical evenings – and the chance to compare and contrast three distinctive musical personalities performing

at the three very different pipe organ venues on Quadra Street in downtown Victoria. All concerts begin at 8 p.m. Tickets are available in advance at Long and McQuade, Ivy’s Book Shop, Munro’s Books, offices of St. John the Divine and Christ Church Cathedral, or at the door on concert evenings. Single Ticket: $25, Festival Pass – for all three concerts: $65. Performers’ bios and program details are on the festival website at rccovictoria.org/festival. llavin@vicnews.com

Paint-In hits quarter-century mark SNPP Moss Street event attracts more than 160 artists to the pavement Daniel Palmer News staff

Mary-ellen Threadkell prefers not to be in the spotlight. As assistant director of advancement at the Greater Victoria Art Gallery, she is a graceful presence, apart from the non-descript, two-by-four piece of pinewood she has tucked under her arm. Along the spine of the wood is a chronology of years past that correspond to miniature weather drawings, laid out like a primitive iPhone app. “It’s superstition. I say that the Paint-In will not be rained out,” she explains before rapping gently on the wood. Her fastidiousness as co-ordinator for the TD Art Gallery Paint-In the past 12 years seems to have worked, as each drawing displays a shining sun. “Last year, I was sorely tested. At 10 minutes before opening, somebody turned off the tap. But it was a downpour like you rarely see here,” she said. Now in its 25th year, the Paint-In has blossomed into an annual celebration that showcases more than 160 artists and attracts close to 35,000 visitors along the length of Moss Street in Fairfield. It has come a long way since its humble beginnings in the gallery’s Art Rental and Sales office, when the likes of Bill Porteous and Fleming Jorgensen put pieces up for sale. Threadkell attended her first Paint-In in 1988 and became enthralled with the unique opportunity it presented to view artists engaged in the creative process. “I saw Toni Onley ... painting on Dallas Road on the waterfront. He was painting about 12 watercolour

it’s also an ideal opportunity for artists to demystify their process and illustrate the differences between mediums, from paint to chalk to sculpting. “A lot of people are looking for an art teacher as well, and this is an ideal place to find someone whose work really interests you,” Threadkell said. “It’s a phenomenal opportunity for artists. There’s nothing anywhere like it.” In addition to the artists on display along Moss between Fort Street and Dallas Road, the art gallery parking lot will be packed with food and drink vendors, as well as a stage featuring Latin band Kumbia. TD, the title sponsor, will also have a “Monster Mural,” a metres-long canvas that can be painted by all attendees.

Ninja Tune UK artist Bonobo will be playing in Victoria on July 25 at Club 9One9. This is his first Canadian date since his Black Sands Remix album came out earlier this year. The original Black Sands came out in 2010 to critical acclaim and worldwide commercial success. Si Green, also known as Bonobo, moved from being an underground producer to a

poster boy for a new take on electronic music – contemporary and edgy but also soulful and song-based. Bonobo will be in Victoria promoting Black Sands Remix, which gathered a group of likeminded musicians and producers to interpret Bonobo’s classic album. Most of the material has never been heard before and has been

collected with assistance from renowned DJ and label-head Alexander Nut. Bonobo takes the stage at Club 9One9 on Wednesday, July 25 at 10 p.m. Tickets start at $15 and are available at Lyle’s Place, Ditch Records, the Strathcona Hotel and online at clubzone.com/ innergroove. llavin@vicnews.com

The Nomads were born from the ultimate frisbee league at UVic. When the players graduated and moved on, they made a pact to continue playing together at major tournaments. With the players now spread across Canada, Carmack is in awe his team

Shamrocks inching closer to post-season Rocks clip rivals Travis Paterson News staff

With a huge win over the New Westminster Salmonbellies on Tuesday, the Victoria Shamrocks moved a lot closer to clinching a Western Lacrosse Association playoff spot. In a contest with dire implications, the Shamrocks took a 7-3 lead over the Salmonbellies, let the lead slip to 8-7 in the third period, but salvaged the win. The win puts the Shamrocks (8-6) into a three-way tie for second place, and puts an end to the Shamrocks’ four-game losing streak. “Losing four straight you can become a fragile team, and we avoided that,” said coach Bob Heyes. “That win was a microcosm of our entire season,” Heyes said. “We take over control at times, then at other times we make it

difficult on ourselves.” The Shamrocks outscored the Salmonbellies 2-1 and 5-2 in the first two periods. It was hard to pinpoint what was difficult about the third period, when the Salmonbellies came back from 7-3 to within a goal, other than the Salmonbellies stabilizing their defensive game, which was dismal in second-period. Kory Kowalyk, Karsen Leung and Corey Small each scored twice for the Shamrocks, with Matt Yager scoring on a breakaway and Ben McCullough adding the emptynetter. For Shamrocks captain Matt Lyons, it’s another big win in the ongoing rivalry with New West, a rivalry which he parachuted into three years ago. “It’s an especially big win with the league being so tight right now. It’s chippy, but that rivalry is how old? It’s not going anywhere.” The WLA rivalry is actually

Next up for the Shamrocks is the Maple Ridge Burrards (2-12) at home on Friday night, followed by a road game against the first-place Langley Thunder (10-5) on Saturday. It’s the first time recently acquired Derek Lowe will face his old team. “Maple Ridge will play with pride, and Lowe will want to show well, so we’ll be motivated,” Heyes sad. The Shamrocks will conclude the season with a home-and home versus the Nanaimo Timbermen, in Victoria on July 27 and Nanaimo on July 28. sports@vicnews.com

Season could have been better, says Jr. Rocks GM Travis Paterson News staff

With the Victoria junior Shamrocks season over, general manager Rod Wood believes his head coach Larry Smeltzler never got a proper chance. Injuries, unlucky and all, haunted the team right through to its early exit from the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League playoffs on Sunday, when the New Westminster Salmonbellies finished a twogame sweep of the best-of-three series. “Injuries were the undoing,” Wood said. “Our season is 21 games, and it wasn’t until the 17th game we were able to make a healthy scratch.” Smeltzer’s brazen approach to the season was refreshing for long-time fans of the box game, but at mid-season it was clear he needed an adjustment, and he made one.

“It was difficult for (Smeltzer) to bring his system in without consistent players at the practices. He was always starting from scratch. “Midway through we used a hybrid system using the good points of (Smeltzler’s1980s-era) system, and the good points of the current way of playing box lacrosse,” Wood said. “I think it would have won us a championship. If (Smeltzer) wants to come back, we’ll be happy to give it another shot. We figured it would take a while to get it in place.” This year’s injury list went from bad to worse, with the type of fluke injuries that curse a season. Brody Eastwood, Devon Casey, Brandan Smith and Dane Schoor were among the injured. “It was one after another, all pretty significant players,” Wood said. Returning to the Jr. Shamrocks next year are 14 players from the 2010 B.C. Intermediate-A provincial championship Victoria team. Visit vicnews.com for full story. sports@vicnews.com
