Two of three fires under investigation The fire department responded to fires at three separate businesses in three days last week. On July 16, at 10:49 a.m., crews were called to Kurt Leroy Trucking on Midport Road to extinguish a fire. The fire started on an acetylene tank being used to do repairs. The fire damaged the welding torch equipment, some electrical components of the building and the steel wall. “The crew was able to extinguish the fire quickly and remove the hazardous tanks,” said Fire Chief Dean Spry. “There were no injuries and the damage to the building and equipment was minimal.” On July 17, at 5:45 a.m., the fire department responded to a monitored alarm at Brandt Tractor on 14th Ave. Upon arrival, the crew found a loader on fire in the repair shop area. The building sprinklers had activated, helping to contain the fire to the shop area. “The crew was able to extinguish the fire after making a forced entry,” said Spry.

The cause of the fire is believed to be an electrical malfunction. Damage was extensive to the cab and wiring components of the loader. There was heat damage to the ceiling above the loader and smoke damage to rest of the building. The, on July 18, at 2:10 a.m., the department responded to calls of a fire at the Finning Cat building on Willow Street. When the crew arrived they found an excavator fully involved in fire. The excavator was adjacent to the rear of the building on the outside of the repair bay in a secured compound. “Callers could see the flames and thought the building was on fire;” said Spry. “Fortunately the flames had not reached the building by the time the crew arrived.” The machine sustained considerable damage. The cause of the fire was jointly investigated by the fire department and RCMP, and the cause of the fire remains undetermined.

Tidemark supporters sip and sup at fab Coastal Black winery

Scene & Heard

Tidemark Theatre supporters ventured south Saturday afternoon to visit the Coastal Black winery in Black Creek. The fundraiser for the Tidemark’s 25th anniversary capital campaign was a huge hit with more than 100 people buying tickets to sample the terrific fruit wines produced on-site by the O’Brennan family. There was also some great appies – oysters rockefeller, bruschetta and homemade pizza – baked fresh in the wood-fired oven located on Coastal Black’s huge patio. The winery was formerly a dairy farm until the brothers decided they would rather do something else than milk cows at 1 a.m. on Christmas Day. That led to the creation of the fruit winery in 2009 which primarily uses blackberries and raspberries, as well as honey for mead which is also produced on-site. And the bees due the double-duty of pollinating everything. The winery has won 21 medals in the last two years. You can find them at 2186 Endall Road (look for the signs). Visit online at www.coastalblack.ca

The province contributed the lion’s share of the money, $4.8 million, to build and operate the facility, while Community Living provided the land valued at $425,000. The third partner in Palmer Place is the North Island Transition Society which provides shelter to women and their children who are fleeing abusive relationships. “Our clients have taken great pride in their new homes here which offer them a safe environment in which their needs are met,” said Valery Puetz, the society’s

executive director, in a news release. The five single-storey wood-frame buildings consist of: ■ A replacement group home with four bedrooms, office, living room, kitchen and common area. ■ Eight units of assisted living for people with disabilities. ■ Six one-bedroom units and two two-bedroom units in a third building. ■ Five one-bedroom, two two-bedroom and one three-bedroom transitional units and offices. ■ A fifth building with a large common area and storage place. “It’s beautiful,” said Dorothy Gaudreault, who has a 43-year-old daughter, Maureen, who has lived in the group home for 16

years. “This is something you dream about because you don’t think it could happen.” Gaudreault, along with her late husband, were one of the early members who got things going for Community Living in Campbell River. Gaudreault Manor, one of the transitional units, was named for the family while Elderkin Manor and Dion Manor were named in honour of other early founders; Palmer Place was named for Ray and Mary Palmer. “We keep it all in the family,” said Michelle Albrecht, who was flanked by her brothers, Walter and Danny Dion, who are wellknown in the city for winning efforts at the Special Olympics.

Continued from A1 “It had become water damaged – we couldn’t even use the rear deck because it was rotted,” said Seth Hildebrand, a fire prevention inspector, who helped rebuild the house. Built by Southgate School’s Grade 11-12 wood-working class in 1988, the fire safety house has been used to educate thousands of local children on how to get out from a smokefilled room and about safe practices in the kitchen. However, the safety courses were put on hold earlier this year as the house had become unsafe, even to tow around. That’s no longer the situation as several businesses donated materials and labour, while city firefighters donated their time to restore the fire safety house just in time for a few trips to local schools in June. “It works really well at the Grade 3 level,” said Hildebrand. “Approximately 11,000 to 12,000 Grade 3s have gone through here. It’s really well received and it’s good to have it back.” On Friday, Fire Chief Dean Spry presented photos of the fire safety house to the businesses which supported the rebuilding effort. They included Bob’s Flooring Canada, Camcour Vinyl Sundeck and Rail, CBS Prehung Doors, Grant Signs, Home Hardware Building Supplies, Nelson Roofing and Sheet Metal, Phoenix Enterprises Sandblasting and Windsor Plywood. “We want to recognize their commitment to fire safety in Campbell River,” said Chief Spry.

“What do you think? Not too bad,” said Greg Hill, as he looked around at the brand new $5.2-million housing complex. Friday was a joyous day for Hill, the executive director of the Campbell River Association for Community Living, and many others who came out for the official opening of Palmer Place. “This is a great, great investment for a long term return,” said Comox Valley MLA Don McRae on behalf of the B.C. Government. Located at 280 Nikola Rd., the site of a former group home, Palmer Place provides housing for people with special needs and 24 more units to shelter women and children in transition. “Hi, I’m nervous as heck…but a thousand thank-yous…I’m one of the privileged people chosen to live here,” said Debbie Lagroix, one of the Palmer Place residents. The ground-level, fully-accessible units are beautifully designed and built to the gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental

With the exception of the children’s playground, which will soon be installed, the only other thing missing at Palmer Place was a vehicle to provide residents with transportation. But that was taken care of too when Albrecht and her brothers presented a new, wheelchairaccessible Ford Protege to Palmer Place on behalf of their late parents. “This was muchneeded,” said Albrecht, who pointed out the closest bus stop is on Petersen Road and there are no sidewalks on Nikola or Willis roads. “I just thought of the young moms pushing strollers along Willis Road – it’s not safe and it scared me.” Palmer Place was built to foster a feeling of community where people can feel safe, secure and can enjoy get-togethers with family and friends. “I’m going to use the word ‘special’ a lot. This is a special day for us,” said Hill.

City: Pole peeler complies with nuisance bylaw KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The controversial pole peeler plant on Duncan Bay Road no longer violates the city’s noise bylaw, according to the city clerk. Nearly five months after neighbours’ noise complaints prompted the city to discover the plant to be in contravention of the city’s nuisance bylaw, abatement modifications recommended by a sound

consultant, are complete. Modifications include tunnels in both in and out log feeds of the debarker and vinyl curtains around the building that encloses the machine. “In addition to the BKL (sound consultant) recommendations, the owners reduced the number of ‘cutting heads’ on the debarker resulting in a lower pitched sound,” said Wipper. “Based on BKL sound consultant’s

yard but could not hear the debarker, which has been the main source of complaints from residents living in the home park. BKL said in its report that noise measurement had dropped from 78 decibels to 63 – a drop of 15 decibels. Guy Deller, who coowns Blue Spruce Home Park with wife Tracey Deller, confirmed on July 10 – the day the sound abatement modifications were completed – that the noise

Wipper said while standing in Blue Spruce Home Park, next door to the peeler, staff could hear the engine of the loader working in the

had been reduced. “It’s a lot better,” he said. “We can live with that.” But residents on Gordon Bay Road and Duncan Bay Road still have complaints about dust, traffic, and the noise from logs being dropped from the loaders. Nora Henry, who lives in Blue Spruce, said it feels “like mini earthquakes” and “bombs going off.” Wipper confir med the city has received

complaints over the sound of logs hitting the ground while being unloaded from the logging trucks. He said the city has discussed this with the plant owner, who relayed it to the machine operator. As for safety issues with logging trucks on Duncan Bay Road, Wipper said the plant owner has distributed information to its hauling contractors to ensure they are aware of city re q u i re m e n t s w i t h

respect to oversize loads and routes. In respect to the dust, Wipper said the plant owners installed a sprinkler system to reduce the amount of dust. Tracey Deller also says the permit for the pole peeler was issued incorrectly and the city did not collect all the required information from the peeler owner. The city says all the information required to issue the permit was provided.

Vandalism to vehicles Over the past month there has been an unexplained increase in mischief to vehicles. Last week alone saw four incidents reported mostly consisting of broke windows. However, nothing was taken from the vehicles. Police are looking for any information about the vandalism. Last week, Mounties responded to 313 calls for service. There were 15 reported persons offences and 38 property related offences. Police arrested two impaired drivers, issued two immediate roadside prohibitions and issued two 24-hour roadside suspensions. Police attended six motor vehicle collisions that resulted in minor injury or property damage and conducted curfew and probation order checks on 15 offenders. RCMP also dealt with 26 reported incidents of people intoxicated in public or causing a disturbance by being drunk.

Councillor advocates for crosswalk Sidewalk program does not include other safety measures KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city has spent time and money on creating pedestrianfriendly walkways but has overlooked the safety of families that use them, according to

one councillor. Of particular concer n is Springbok Road, near the connector to the bike path. Coun. Larry Samson directed city staff last week to investigate and report back to council on the need for a crosswalk in the 1050 block of Springbok to connect the sidewalk with the connector path, near Eland Road. “As part of the sidewalk infill program, which I believe is a very good program, we’ve created these pedestrian-friendly walkways in our neigh-

bourhoods,” Samson said at a council meeting July 10. The city’s sidewalk infill program focuses on building sidewalks in high priority areas where pedestrian use is high and the safety of those pedestrians is of concern. Samson said while he likes the program, he’s troubled that it does not include crosswalks and other safety measures. “I think as part of the sidewalk infill program there is the necessity or the need to have safe crossings for our families and safe crossings for our children,” he said. Samson noted kids on Springbok have been running out in the street to access the bike path, which is at the bottom of a steep, winding hill. He said the bike path in the neighbour-

hood has been “substantially” improved and it’s heavily used because of nearby Sandowne Elementary School and a number of young families in the area. City staff came back with a report which was before council at the Committee of the Whole meeting last night after the Mirror went to press. Drew Hadfield, city transportation manager, said the Springbok location did not meet the criteria used to support a crosswalk at this time. “Priority locations are along logical and strategic positions on arterial and collector roadways, and generally correspond with issues associated with safety, traffic volume and routes frequently used by pedestrians,” Hadfield said in his report. “Generally,

mid-block sections are avoided unless there is a need that can be validated and/or the distance is excessive b e t we e n i n t e r s e c tions.” Hadfield said the volume of traffic, the speed of traffic and the number of pedestrians don’t warrant a crosswalk, although the city has reviewed requests in the area and is in the process of installing a crosswalk at the intersection of Gazelle and Rockland roads. Hadfield said the city will undertake traffic counts on Springbok in the next few weeks to confirm volume and speed. “If the volume information supports further review, staff will look at pedestrian movements in the area and determine if any additional steps need to be taken to address this request,” he said.

Our View

British Columbians nervous about Enbridge Premier Christy Clark has outlined British Columbia’s conditions for approving the Enbridge corporation’s Northern Gateway pipeline. And subsequently, she has gotten into a spat with Alberta Premier Alison Redford over her demands. The most contentious We say: Can issue is B.C.’s demands for a fair there be enough share of the revenue from the compensation for pipeline. A fair share of the revenue – however that is defined – is the what’s at risk? least British Columbians should get from this pipeline. If indeed, this pipeline should actually be allowed to go ahead. Clark’s conditions essentially signal that the B.C.

government is willing to approve the project but wants to benefit from it monetarily. But is there enough revenue to compensate for the potential damage a spill from the pipeline could cause anywhere along its course from the Rockies to the sea? Premier Clark is right when she says that B.C. takes all the risk and gets little of the economic benefit while Alberta gets all the benefit and little of the risk. Clark’s conditions also assert that stringent environmental conditions and extensive reviews must be in place before B.C. approves the project. Premier Redford, meanwhile, is tossing up a red herring by claiming B.C.’s fiscal demands will

rewrite the rules of confederation by circumventing the transfer payment system that redistributes wealth throughout the country from have provinces to have-not provinces. She also states that there are stringent environmental reviews and protection regulation in place. Somehow, we’re not reassured however, given Enbridge’s record on spill control. Premier Redford can divert attention all she wants from the environmental risk but there’s no doubt that B.C. will be bearing the brunt of any damage. British Columbians have significant reservations about this project because we all recognize the horrendous damage it could cause. And the appetite is pretty low for taking that risk.

See neglect everywhere Each day as I pass through the new part of the Island Highway I expect to see city employees hard at work tidying up the weeds that have grown to the size of shrubs. But no... this upgrade, that cost millions of dollars is blighted by neglect, I understand that the plants have died but why are they still there? Bare earth would better than beds of dead plants and weeds. As for the smell, this is worse than before the new pumping station was put in. This is not acceptable, there are natural products that deal with the bacteria in sewerage to eliminate the odour, it’s not rocket science. What must visitors think as they enter the city? “Nice view, shame about the pong!” Council ignored the wishes of the people and went ahead with the tax hike of 13.6 per cent but it would seem we are getting less for our money in frontline services. Aside from the weeds everywhere, some of the lines on the roads and at crossings are in most places completely worn away, visitors and residents can see the neglect everywhere. To say we are being ripped off is an understatement. Continued on A7

Let me tell you about my favourite vacation spot

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb

I have to tell about this place where I spent my vacation last week. It was great. The first day we were there, we grabbed our canoe and launched it into this beautiful river estuary. The tide was high and the shoreline was as rich a green as you’d find anywhere. We explored this verdant environment with Canada geese and ducks keeping us company. At one point we paddled around this island from the shaded side into the sun and came upon hundreds of Canada geese sunning themselves on the shore of this little island! Literally a hundred or two. Prior to this we had crossed the main river channel and into a side channel that once was an industrial

site with practically no wildlife or natural value. You’d never know that now. It is beautiful. The green, wooded shore reflected in the mirrorlike surface of the slough. The whole area had been replanted with native vegetation after a joint community effort led by the Nature Conservancy of Canada. What an impressive community to have banded together to recreate such a beautiful spot. They must be proud. Too soon our estuary paddle had to come to a close as the evening sun set behind the mountains. But not before we discovered this creek channel that we thought would end after every twist and turn but only to discover it

kept going. What fun. We followed up our estuary paddle with a day at this beautiful sandy beach. The tide was out and we took in the nature program then set up our chairs on the beach and built a massive sandcastle. We then swam in the ocean and watched as the incoming tide crept up on our castle. Eventually, the gentle waves began lapping against its walls. Before long it began to collapse which is always the best part. After our picnic dinner we took in the evening nature program. What a lovely day. Our third day trip was fantastic as well. We drove about an hour and a half away to these caves we knew about. They are so much fun because

they’re easily accessible and don’t go too deep. So you don’t need too much caving expertise and our kids could just be let loose to scramble around exploring all the nooks and crannies. Just bring a flashlight, sturdy shoes and some clothes that can get a little muddy and you have hours of fun. Later in the week we then took in this outstanding museum that allowed us to get to know the history of this special place. Yes, it was a great community to spend a vacation. And, of course, you recognize that we stayed home in Campbell River revisiting the Campbell River estuary, Miracle Beach, Upana Caves and our own museum. Might go back sometime soon.

Change of attitude might bring global business back After reading that some Campbell River taxpayers upset about the rate of tax increases in the city, at the same time questioning the level of services provided, it looks like Campbell River needs or perspective from another city in another freetrade partner country, Mexico. I own a home in the state of Nayarit, Mexico. My combined property and sewer/water tax on my view home overlooking the small oceanside city of La Penita de Jaltemba is roughly $99 per year. Compare this number with the cost of doing business in Campbell

River. Granted, La Penita has basic city services – garbage, sewer, water and basic street maintenance – for this tax base. The local politicians recognize slow global recovery, and there have been minimal tax increases over the past four years of property ownership. Local initiatives for parks or infrastructure are in the form of “3 for 1” projects. This is the best of “voting with your actions.” For every peso locals raise for local projects, the county and state each match it one for one. This eliminates the

problem of city hall bureaucrats finding a pet project to ensure their existence. Most bureaucracies around the planet are now struggling for funds to maintain infrastructure they were saddled with in their years of excess. Campbell River City Hall can simply say this is the way it is done here. However, with global trade and the ease of moving funds around the planet (not just city or province), Campbell River must wake up to global realities. All major corporations on the planet can choose the most cost-effective place to

do business. Campbell River City Hall must realize the demise of Catalyst Paper, as Campbell River’s golden goose, was a great loss and mistake. The way Campbell River treated this major investment, or employer, is well-documented for all global CEOs to take note. I recently heard a long-ter m resident commenting they recognized everyone on their recent Comox-toAlberta direct flight. These absentee parents, or the loss of families to Alberta, may not provide the best outcomes for Campbell River.

A7

Fortunately, recently announced Crown corporation and taxpayer funded projects will provide some relief for Campbell River, and hopefully, with a change of attitude, the global business community might step up to the plate in the future. Ignoring all City of Campbell River rhetoric, there are many other locations on the planet where business is truly welcome. The workforce and investors of Mexico, or China and many other developing countries, thank you for taking this head-in-the-sand stance. Rob Erickson

expenses as in the past and when the next election comes around we expect some serious changes to the city

staff budget, preferably before then. We are the beleaguered taxpayers and councillors you are on notice to

do the right thing by us, the time has come to stop the tail wagging the dog. Jane Davies

Visitors welcomed with weeds, overgrown grass KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Beautiful floral patterns below the Welcome to Campbell River sign have been replaced this year by weeds and long grass, much to residents’ dismay. The colourful annuals formerly planted in the garden plot below the grey, industrialstyle sign are the victims of this year’s city budget cuts. And that’s not sitting well with some people. “What is city hall thinking with the mess that is growing below the Welcome to

Campbell River sign on the Island Highway and Jubilee Parkway?” asks Lynn Michaluk in a letter to the Mirror. “We want to project that Campbell River is a beautiful community to live in (which it is) and welcome people to move here, and this is what they see as they drive in? It used to be so beautiful with flowers and well-kept.” Esther Kowalko, who moved to the city from Victoria two years ago, said in a Facebook post that she would like to see the public come together and spruce up the garden. “The weed patch

under the CR Welcome Sign is sad, sad,” Kowalko said. “Loved the idea of a garden club involvement. Let this be the last year for that weed patch...pride in our community.” Council made the decision to forgo any planting at the welcome sign when it chose to cut the city’s horticulture budget by 25 per cent, or $49,000, in 2012. “Essentially that reduction resulted in the reduction of two full-time seasonal positions that worked 40 hour weeks from April to September,” said Ross Milnthorp, city

general manager of parks, recreation, and culture. “We will be maintaining the grass in the area but not providing any service to that flower bed, which means no planting... and we will be weeding once this year.” Coun. Larry Samson, council liaison to parks and recreation, said that’s not something anyone likes to see, but the cuts were necessary to balance a tough budget. “I don’t think it’s a standard we’d like to see or that we’ve kept to in the past but unfortunately when there is a cutback in the level of

service there are drawbacks and repercussions,” Samson said. “I think anybody would be concerned, including council but when we were doing budget deliberations, where were the cuts supposed to come from? Parks was identified as one of those areas and as a councillor you have the responsibility to respect the majority of council. “ B u t a ny t i m e i t affects the beauty of where we live there has to be a concern.” Samson spoke out against cutting the horticulture budget during budget plan-

but Robert Ostler Park is even more high visibility,” he said. “Ostler Park is a heavily-used site and the pride of the downtown core.” But the book may not be closed on the welcome sign just yet. Samson said Monday after noon the issue would likely be discussed at council’s Committee of the Whole meeting Tuesday evening after the Mirror went to press. “I’m quite sure that it will be brought up to see if something can be done,” he said. “Having said that, it is getting late into the summer season to plant but that’s up to the experts. Hopefully we’ll see what we can do.”

ning in February. “I think it sets a poor standard for our neighbourhoods,” Samson said of cuts that have translated to no planting in neighbourhood parks, tot lots, all 15 city boulevards, Willow Point flower baskets, Campbellton islands, the sportsplex and Adams, Frank James, Nunns Creek, and Dick Murphy parks. Milnthorp said after the budget was cut, staff prioritized city flower beds based on the highest degree of visibility. Those at the top of the list were planted this year. “I know that sounds crazy because the Welcome to Campbell River sign seems like a high visibility area

BRABAZON (nee THOMPSON) Velma Margaret June 22, 1942 - July 20, 2012

Another angel was called home after a brief but courageous battle with cancer. Velma Margaret Brabazon passed away peacefully at her home in Langley, BC on July 20 2012 with loved ones by her side. She was predeceased by her father, Donald Thompson, mother Myrtle Thompson and brother Donald Thompson. Val is survived and will be sadly missed by her son Dan (Laura), sisters Helen (Danny) and Barbara (Richard) together with many nieces and nephews. Val was a nurturer by nature and was devoted to her family, her animals and the gardening that she loved so much. May the joy and love she shared with others live on in those who knew her. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations in Val's memory to the SPCA would be appreciated.

Dusty Rhodes A bright light went out in the Vancouver and Vancouver Island Theatre Community when Dusty Rhodes died suddenly on June 10, 2012 in Nanaimo, BC. He was an independent soul that needed to live large. Dusty was an enigma – a warm and gentle soul wrapped up in a short, gruff and tough exterior. Born and branded Robert Bruce Rhodes Jr., in Nanaimo on September 24, 1955 he was immediately nicknamed Dusty by his Grandma. (after a famous baseball player of the time) At 3 he decided to move to Willow Point with his parents where he attended the local schools. He was always the cool one, loved by teachers, friends and family alike. He became a father to Jace Rhodes at 16, married Cindy at 18, got a job at Raven Lumber, bought a trailer, and seemed settled in to small town life. But as a character that was bigger than life, he wasn’t fulfilled. In 1981 his first marriage ended amicably. He started working at the Gourmet By The Sea and there he met his soulmate, Joelle Rabu. They moved to Vancouver in 1981 and ended up in theatre pretty much by accident. Dusty learned to do lights and sound for Joelle’s show and found his niche. Characters are encouraged in the theatre community and Dusty was one of the biggest characters of all. He was the Technical Director at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre for 10 years and Technical Director of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival for 8 years. He worked in every venue in the Lower Mainland, most of the venues in BC, many of the venues in Canada and several venues internationally. In 1993, having had enough of city life, Dusty returned to Vancouver Island with Joelle and their son, Nicolas. He made his home in Nanaimo and worked mostly at the Port and Chemainus Theatres. He loved Joelle, his kids, all kids, his Harley and his guitar, but unfortunately, like all souls that had to live larger than life, he had his demons. We all hope Dusty is now somewhere where he has “shuffled off this mortal coil” and is at peace. He will be missed by many, many people. “THE LAST HURRAH” will be a memorial celebrating Dusty’s life, being held on July 30th, at the WISE Hall in Vancouver. Anyone wanting to attend is welcome, please RSVP on Facebook at “The Last Hurrah” event or e-mail jerhodes421@yahoo.ca. Because Dusty is remembered by many as a mentor to those entering theatre, a bursary is being arranged through Langara College. Each year this will enable someone in need to complete the technical theatre program through Studio 58. If you wish to contribute to the fund, contact Judy at jerhodes421@yahoo.ca for further details. RIP bro.

We thought of you with love today But that is nothing new, We thought about you yesterday And days before that too. Our lives go on without you But nothing is the same, We have to hide our heartaches When someone speaks your name. Now all we have are memories And pictures in a frame. No words can tell, no flowers repay, The loss we had three years today. Till memories fail and life departs, You will live for ever in our hearts. Loved and Missed, Katie, Brennan, Mom, Dad, Michelle, James, Sophie and Charles.

The city is running out of places to put wood carvings created by sculptors in the annual Canada Day weekend carving competition. The Shoreline Arts Society, which hosts the event, has once again offered the city a carving of its choice from this year’s competition. Council accepted the donation at a council meeting July 10 and debated setting up budget to maintain all the carvings the city is responsible for. “As you probably noted, looking around

the city, some of these carvings are getting a little bit worn,” said City Manager Andy Laidlaw. Ross Milnthorp, city manager of parks, recreation, and culture, said that while the carvings reflect local culture and “serve as a tourist attraction” they also “deteriorate rapidly when exposed to weather and require a maintenance budget to keep them looking presentable.” He also noted the city is running out of space in preferred locations. Coun. Andy Adams said for what the carvings bring to the community it would be

a carving this year and set up an annual $5,000 maintenance budget. Coun. Larry Samson also moved that the city do an inventory of all the carvings it’s responsible for and determine the amount of money needed to keep up all the sculptures. Both motions passed unanimously by council. The ongoing inventory and allocation of the carvings will likely be passed on to the new Community Services, Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission, which includes members of the public and is expected to form this September.

worthwhile to put up the money to maintain them. “The Shoreline Arts Society and what this initiative has brought to our city has been nothing short of outstanding,” he said. “And each year...we get more and more carvings added.” Coun. Claire Moglove asked city staff whether Shoreline has the means to preserve the carvings. Milnthorp said the society has provided maintenance for the carvings but it’s not something it can do on a regular basis. Moglove then put forward a motion to accept

Yes, finally summer is here! And it is BBQ season on Vancouver Island. Most of us like fresh BBQ salmon. I prefer filleted salmon all bones removed, with skin on. We all know our favourite marinade or sauce to impress our guests. So, preheat your BBQ and take the whole fish fillets out of the marinade and place it skin down on the hot BBQ. Do not turn or move the salmon pieces and make sure the lid is closed during the cooking process. You are better off to cook the fish fillets longer on lower heat then the opposite. Once you see the fat appearing on the surface of the fillets your salmon will be done! It is ok to slightly under cook the salmon on the thickest piece of the fillet. The Chefs at the Coast Discovery Inn are offering a wide variety of cooking methods for fish dishes. All our fish are offered steamed, poached, grilled or baked. Chef Hansi Zihlmann

Brian and Kelly Flurer bring over 32 years of experience to Flurer Smokery Ltd., a private Aboriginal owned and operated federally registered and HACCP certified facility here in Campbell River. Their vision is to bring a true ‘west coast’ flavour to both Campbell River and the world while providing the highest quality services and products.

Brian & Kelly will take any size order from your catch on the latest fishing trip up to wholesale size orders. There truly is ‘love in every bite’ as all products are hand cut and hand boned. The brine used is a dry brine mixture of brown sugar and salt where no dyes or preservatives are used. Each piece is hand rubbed and hand rinsed. With two state of the art, 1200 lb. capacity smokers, Flurer Smokery is able to set programs for both the type of fish and the resulting style providing a consistent product every time and you can choose from 4 different cuts and 5 different flavours; original, peppered, Cajun, and candied.

Wrestler earns bronze at Pan-Am Games Ashley Osachuk defeated a wrestler from Guatemala to capture the bronze medal at the recent Pan American Wrestling Championships in Maracaibo, Venezuela. “The competition at this level was extremely tough,” says Osachuk, “definitely a step higher going from the Canadian Nationals to international level.” The opportunity to represent Canada was an amazing experience and one Osachuk will never forget. She also sends thanks to the many businesses which supported her as well as everyone who gave her donations. The excitement continues for Osachuk and other local wrestlers competing at the B.C.

The Campbell River Ravens Peewee B lacrosse team had a fantastic weekend at the provincial championship in Richmond. The tournament kicked off with a match against Delta. It was a game, but the Ravens lost 7-6, with all six Campbell River goals scored by Bryce Turko. In game two, the Ravens dominated North Shore and won 11-1. Game three was a nail-biter for Ravens fans, as Campbell River and Juan de Fuca remained deadlocked at 3-3 at the final buzzer. Continued on Page B2

Ravens: Edged Continued from Page B1

Just 12 seconds into overtime, the Ravens scored to pull out a 4-3 victory. In game four, the Ravens defeated Port Coquitlam 7-3. More importantly, the win secured a Ravens’ berth in the gold medal game. However, in the championship game, the Ravens went down in defeat, 5-3, to another Island team, Peninsula, despite pulling the goalie late in the third to try and even up the score. Still, the Ravens came home from provincials with the silver medal, and the honour of being one of the top two teams in the province. Raven MVPs throughout the tournament included Quin Nelson, Kaleb Vivier, Aidan Probyn and Turko. Three amazing call-ups from the C Divison Ravens also contributed to the effort. They were Gordan Ludvigson, Heydon Campbell and Noah Araki. “The boys should be really happy with these games,” said Liz Billings, Ravens spokesperson. “They won all their games except for their last one. Peninsula has been our rival all season. It was a very close game with one point spread through most of it. And of course both teams came out with everything they had.” The Ravens thank their coaches Cory Fisher, Dwayne Christensen, Steve Vivier and Eric Mainprize.

Four swimmers shine at Meet Almost 300 swimmers from around the Island competed at the Campbell River Salmon Kings annual competition at Centennial Pool July 14-15. Four members were swimmers of the meet. Paul Smurthwaite, Ava Defert, Kamden Hicks and Cait Newton shared the coveted Swimmer of the Meet stars.

New website delivers more real estate information A new website created to enhance the public’s real estate experience has been launched by the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB). The new website, www.vireb.com, was designed to deliver larger amounts of real

estate information to the public. The original website had been in use virtually unchanged except for content since its launch in 2006. The new website incorporates a broader range of information options

for users not available in the older site – such as access to VIREB’s Social Media presence and more information concerning realtors and the impact they have in their community. Another major benefit of the new website

is the development of a unique interactive “Open House” module. The Open House tool is a free service open to the public 24 hours per day. Interested users merely go to the main VIREB site and then click on the large

“Open House” button to be taken to a separate page where interactive tools allows users to select specific regions on Vancouver Island when searching for upcoming open houses. Users can locate planned open house

dates as much as two weeks in advance. “We’re very excited about the launch of this new website,” said Darrell Paysen, manager of member services for VIREB. “Our goal is to make our website the go-toplace for real estate

industry information. The new website and its companion site will provide users with an easy -to-use way to learn about VIREB and real estate in general while identifying available open houses in their neighbourhoods.”

address their demand for skilled workers, but it will also provide British Columbians in more remote communities on Vancouver Island the opportunity to train in this industry and find a job.” The aquaculture technician diploma program is being offered by Excel Career College in three areas of Vancouver Island: Port Alberni, Port Hardy and Campbell River. Aquaculture employers in these areas are in demand for skilled workers, but potential employees have had little access to relevant skills training, as the program is currently offered only in Courtenay. This intensive program creates additional opportunities for these communities to offer training to local participants,

while meeting local demand. As part of the program, participants will be placed with local aquaculture employers for a twoweek practicum and will be assisted with longer-term job search activities. “This project is very helpful to our members and similar businesses, as it enables the development of skill-specific training and creates a pool of skilled people interested in working in the industry,” said Mary Ellen Walling, executive director, BC Salmon Farmers Association. “It’s of particular benefit to people in the smaller geographic regions where we operate. As we anticipate continued growth in the sector, we expect a continued demand for skilled employees.” The aquaculture

technician diploma program is supported by $458,200 in funding through the Canada – British Columbia Labour Market Agreement. Quick Facts: ■ The objective of the Labour Market Sector Solutions program is to invest in the skills development of eligible participants, while assisting industries/sectors, employers and workers to address labour market needs throughout B.C. ■ Participants must be Labour Market Agreement eligible – meaning they are unemployed, nonEmployment Insurance individuals, or are employed, lowskilled individuals.

decade, British Columbia is projected to have over one million job openings. The BC Jobs Plan will ensure the over $500 million provided annually for labour market and training programs is targeted to meeting regional and industry labour market needs. ■ B.C. invests approximately $66 million a year – between 2008 and 2014 – in programs and services that help people get the skills they need to fill job opportunities in regions where they live and study. These programs and services are funded through the Canada-BC Labour Market Agreement.

Sixty people on northern Vancouver Island are beginning a 25-week training program to learn the skills necessary to work as aquaculture technicians in the aquaculture industry. The provincial government is supporting a new Labour Market Sector Solutions project with the BC Salmon Farmers Association, which is designed to help participants secure permanent employment in the aquaculture industry while helping local employers meet labour demands. “Our government’s top priority is creating and protecting jobs for British Columbians,” said Pat Bell, Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. “This aquaculture training program will not only help employers on Vancouver Island

Fire prohibitions expanded within Coastal Fire Centre A Category 2 open fire and fireworks prohibition has been expanded to include all areas within the Coastal Fire Centre except Haida Gwaii. This prohibition is intended to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety. It will remain in place until September 15, 2012 or until the public is otherwise notified. Specifically, this prohibits: ■ The burning of any waste, slash or other material (piled or unpiled) smaller than two metres in height and three metres in width. ■ The burning of stubble or grass over an area less than 2,000 square metres. ■ The use of fireworks or bur ning barrels of any size or description. The ban does not prohibit campfires that

are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or smaller, and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. Anyone lighting a campfire must maintain a fireguard by removing flammable debris from the campfire area and must have a hand tool or at least eight litres of water available nearby to properly extinguish the fire. Category 3 open burning, used for resource management reasons, is still allowed. However, anyone conducting this type of open burning may only conduct one burn at a time and must first obtain a burn registration number by calling 1-888 7971717. More infor mation about open burning regulations and fire prohibitions can be found at http://bcwildfire.ca. A map of the area covered by this

prohibition is available at Coastal Prohibitions. The prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown lands and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Please check with civic authorities for any restrictions before lighting a fire. Anyone found in contravention of an open fire ban may be fined $345 or, if convicted in court, be fined up to $100,000 and sentenced to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person may be subject to a penalty of up to $10,000 and be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs. Coastal B.C. has experienced a wet spring, but current weather conditions are drying

Managing Your Money Do It Yourself life insurance – 4x10 why not buy online? From books and cars to airline tickets and shoes, you can buy just about anything online and lots of us are doing it. You can even buy all sorts of insurance products online, including life insurance. But should you go the DIY Internet route for something as important as your life insurance policy? If you’re thinking about life insurance, congratulations, you do understand the need to protect your family but buying life insurance on the Internet may not be a great choice. Here’s why. Off-the-rack Online life insurance product offerings are limited, usually to a one-size-¿tsall solution. You need a policy that is tailored to your precise needs, your unique ¿nancial and life goals. Stand-alone An online purchase will get you a stand-alone product, but your life insurance choice should ¿t seamlessly with your overall ¿nancial plan. Simplicity Life insurance is not that simple. There are three basic choices, term, whole life and universal life, with many variations.

BC Coroners Service issues warning about co-sleepers The BC Coroners Service is warning parents of infants about the potential dangers of using co-sleepers, a type of crib that attaches to the side of an adult bed. The warning comes after an extensive investigation into the death of a 10-month-old Surrey girl who died last year after becoming trapped between the co-sleeper and the adult bed. In April 2011, Health Canada issued a recall notice for the most common type of cosleeper - the “Original and Universal CoSleeper” manufactured by Califor nia-based Arm’s Reach Concepts. Since that time, the cosleepers have not been available through normal retail outlets in Canada, but many used ones are still found for sale at garage sales and through websites such as Craigslist. Also, it is still possible to purchase the cosleepers in the U.S.A. In its recall notice, Health Canada specifically noted the danger that an infant sleeping in one “can become entrapped between the edge of the mattress and the side of the sleeper. This poses a risk of suffocation.” The coroner’s investigation found that this was precisely what had happened in the little girl’s death. She had been placed on her back in the co-sleeper, but when found she was facedown wedged between the edge of the sleeper

and the mattress of the adult bed. She was found to have died of positional asphyxia. The BC Coroners Service reminds parents and all who care for infants that a baby is safest when put down to sleep on their back, in a properly-designed crib or bassinet, with no quilts, pillows, stuffed toys or other soft material in the crib. For further information on safe sleep for babies, see: http:// www.phac-aspc.gc.ca/ hp-ps/dca-dea/stagesetapes/childhoodenfance_0-2/sids/ssb_ brochure-eng.php

Be smart with your power and cut down on electricity use This summer, have fun in the sun but keep your cool indoors. Here are some tips on how to be smart with your power and cut down on your electricity use and costs. ■ Cool air in, hot air out Lock out hot air during the day and open windows to let cooler air in during the evenings. ■ Blinds up, temperature down – Using blinds and drapes can block up to 65% of the heat that would otherwise come in through your windows. Angling horizontal blinds with the edge tilted upwards will block heat from entering while allowing light in. ■ Spin that fan – A ceiling fan is a great energyefficient alternative to an air conditioner. To use a fan more effectively, hang it at

least 2.5 meters above the floor and ensure it is rotating counter-clockwise. The air-flow from this creates a wind-chill effect that makes you feel cooler. ■ A cool home – Time the use of major appliances like ovens and washing machines during cooler times of the day. Turn off all unnecessary electrical equipment – computers, stereos and televisions – and limit the use of most electronics to early mornings and evenings when the air is cooler. ■ Make laundry a breeze – Take advantage of the warm dry weather to hang your laundry to dry. Hanging clothes to dry instead of using a dryer is a great way to keep things cool and save money. If you have to use the dryer, throw in a dry towel to a wet load of laundry to cut

down the drying time. ■ Food for thought – Eat cold food on a hot day to save the need for using the oven or stovetop. Or use the barbecue and prevent unnecessary heat in your home from the oven. ■ Keep your cool – Keep cool this summer by taking shorter, cooler showers. You can save up to $15 a year per person by taking one minute off your usual showering time. For a family of four, that’s $60 of savings! ■ Vacation tip – If you’re going out of town, remember that a full fridge is a happy fridge. Having an empty fridge requires more energy to cool the empty spaces. Try filling old containers with water to improve your fridge’s efficiency. The same rule applies to your freezer! ■ Timing is everything –

What is a Periodontist? 3X5

If you’re going to be away, use a timer for interior and exterior lights so that your lights turn on and off at a pre-determined time. And don’t forget to unplug phone chargers and other appliances to diminish “phantom” load. (Electronics and other devices, like phone chargers, continue to draw electricity even if they’re not in use.) ■ Join the Team – Join Team Power Smart and get energy-saving advice, and take advantage of exclusive rebates and offers.

Explore street photography Bring a new vision to everyday surroundings and make images in the best art-photojournalism style in the two-day Creative Street Photography workshop on offer at the Campbell River Art Gallery. The workshop with new gallery instructor, Claudia Lorenz runs Saturday, Aug. 11 from 3 – 8 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 12 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. It’s the little things that make an ordinary image leap to life: learn to live “in the frame” and find new ways to photograph people, events, architecture and the amazing diversity of streetlevel life. Contemporary black and white, low light conditions, all-weather shooting, the ethics of public photography and an intro to creative processing are all part of this hands-on course. Any camera will work for this workshop, even your Smartphone. The cost for the course is $153 for members of the gallery, $163 for non-members, plus HST. Make sure you have sufficient space on your device memory and freshly charged batteries. Work clothes are highly recommended,

as there will be an outdoor component. “This workshop is a fantastic opportunity for participants to learn how to see within the realm of photography,” says gallery Curator Shannon Proctor-McLeod. “It’s a matter of looking at the beauty around you, and knowing how to capture that beauty within a 2-dimensional image.” Claudia Lorenz, MEd (Arts) has over 20 years experience in photography. Her current obsessions include low resolution imaging, lomography, photography as fictional narrative, and her iPhone camera. Her images have been exhibited and published at both ends of the continent and she is currently working on two bookformat collections. Her unique style of teaching is highly accessible and entertaining. She is also an instructor at the University of Victoria. You can register for this course by phone at 287-2261 or in person at the Gallery, located in Tyee Plaza across from the Tidemark theatre.

FILBERG

Nanaimo bluesman David Gogo will host the Blues Panel at the Filberg Festival Aug. 3.

Blues at the Filberg Festival

Blues Fans will be heading to the Filberg Festival in Comox on Friday Aug. 3 this year for the traditional Blues Panel Concert. Host of the Blues Panel concert this year is David Gogo known for his cutthroat wit and virtuosic blues guitar technique. He will be joined by David Vest, a Southern bred boogie-woogie piano pounder; Dave Harris, who is renowned for his harmonica playing as well as his expertise on both acoustic and electric guitar; and the duo of Gary Preston and

Anita Bonkowski. The musical chemistry between Preston on harmonica, keyboard and vocals, and Bonkowski on bass and drums is a force to be reckoned with in the blues. Each performer is an accomplished musician with their own individual style, but on Friday afternoon they come together to share their extensive knowledge of the blues with the audience. Each musician takes a turn as lead performer as they showcase the blues past and present.

And if you haven’t had enough of the Blues you can check these musicians out when they play their own solo shows on Friday and Saturday. For a full schedule, tick ets and more information check out www. filbergfestival.com. This family friendly festival celebrates excellence in all forms of arts and crafts and music with over one hundred juried crafts booths, plus music on two stages, plus a great Kids Area, and yummy concession booths. The objective of the festival is to raise

the money needed to restore and maintain the beautiful nine-acre Filberg property and Heritage Lodge. (www. filbergfestival.com for schedule, tickets, information) DAVID GOGO, one of Canada’s hardest working blues-rock guitarists, has garnered three Juno Nominations, the Saturday Night Blues’ Great Canadian Blues Award for a lifetime contribution to the blues in Canada, WCMA Musician of the Year, and has twice been named Maple Blues Guitarist of the Year.
