Board balks at bottle ban

Regional District of Nanaimo will continue to sell bottled water at its facilities NEIL HORNER

news@pqbnews.com

The Regional District of Nanaimo gave only half-hearted support to a request for the RDN to become a blue community this week. At their committee of the whole meeting on Tuesday, directors opted to fulfill only one of the three requirements needed to get that designation. The request called for the district to declare access to clean water as a human right, to support public ownership of water facilities and to ban the sale of bottled

water at RDN facilities and events. Chief administrative officer Carol Mason said the recognition of water as a human right is not within the purvew of the RDN’s mandate, suggesting it would be more appropriate for the federal government to do so. As well, she said the RDN already supports public ownership of water utilities. Those two aspects received no dissent from the board, but the third aspect, the banning of bottled water, sparked considerable debate. See BOTTLED, page A7

Report taggers — cops NEIL HORNER

news@pqbnews.com

A rash of graffiti in Parksville’s downtown core has police urging business owners to clean it up quickly, but take photos of it before they do. Oceanside RCMP Corporal Jesse Foreman said he has heard numerous complaints from downtown business owners about the so-called tagging incidents over the past few weeks. “I did a bike patrol the other night and was aghast at all the tagging I saw,” he said. “It’s un-

sightly and costs far too much money.” “We catalogue every tag and make files of them, so if we catch an offender in the act, every tag is a separate count of mischief. If there is a tag on your business, call us before you get rid of it. Take photos of it,” he said. “A specialist could link that person to each one of those tags.” He said it’s important to clean up the grafitti quickly, as others are more likely to put their tag beside an existing one, making a bad situation worse.

STARTING POINT Mystery man names QB seagull mascot

The seagull that graces the posters advertising Beach Day in Qualicum Beach now has an official name — but the moniker of the person who named it remains mostly a mystery. Beach Day organizer Tom Russell said judges had many options to choose from but opted to go with Kwalli. “There were other, similar NEIL HORNER PHOTO ones, like Qualli, but we thought Tom Russell shows off Kwalli. of Kwalikum high school and the First Nations connotation,” he said. “It’s also androgynous, neither male nor female.” The winning entry was provided by a person named Arnold, who didn’t want to provide his last name or accept a prize. “He was just happy to do it,” Russell said.

Have speeder, will travel AUREN RUVINSKY writer@pqbnews.com

The speeders have landed… and then rolled away. Around 20 of the little rail vehicles travelled the unused tracks from Port Alberni to Whiskey Creek and back Tuesday. Members of the North American Railcar Operators Assoctiation (NARCOA) from as far away as Oregon, Idaho and California brought their speeders and joined the handful of local members for the pleasure cruise. Local enthusiast Ken Fyfe hosted the group of 70 or so at his track-side Whiskey Creek property, full of antique machinery, cars, steam engines and assorted industrial relics. “Without his help this wouldn’t be happening,” local NARCOA representative Gordon Grenon said of Fyfe. Together with just a few other local members they cleared the track to keep it usable. The visiting riders, on the fourth annual trip, were thrilled with the route through the mountains, along Cameron Lake and over the trestle.

QB downtown changes move forward Council not unanimous in their approach to village neighbourhood plans NEIL HORNER

news@pqbnews.com

Qualicum Beach council this week opted to move forward with plans to relax height restrictions on new developments in the village neighbourhood portion of the downtown core and to allow new developments to have residential units on the ground oor. However, a move to slash offsite service charges in half failed to y at Monday’s committee of the whole meeting. The motion to cut offsite service charges from the current $5,000 per metre of frontage to $2,500 was made by Coun. Bill Luchtmeijer, who said that while $5,000 may not sound like a lot of money to shell out in a development, the total tab for all the frontage could prove huge. “For a lot that’s 50 by 160 feet, they would pay $93,000 to the town before they can do anything,â€? he said. “If they have a lane beside their building, that jumps to $147,000. That’s a big chunk of cash for someone to develop a commercial development.â€? Coun. Scott Tanner was no fan of the idea. “If we are trying to encourage more development in some of the downtown areas, I’m not sure that reducing some of these expenditures and transferring them to the existing taxpayer is necessarily going to result in more development,â€? he said. “With the $5,000 reduced to $2,500, it’s a direct transfer. Any of those expenditures would be

She said the Regional District of Nanaimo already carries out some of the mandate of the biosphere foundation but receives no recognition for doing so. Forming the committee within the RDN, she suggested, would give that deserved recognition. However, board chair Joe Stanhope said Wednesday the RDN opted not to form such a committee, but rather, to help the group in other ways. “Basically, what we are going to do is assist them in developing terms of reference to provide a restructured governance model and send corespondance to UNESCO

articulating the accomplishments to date within the Mt. Arrowsmith biosphere reserve by the RDN,� Stanhope said. “We have been doing some neat things and we are probably in a leadership position among regional districts in B.C. and we are among some of the best in North America in terms of our solid waste diversion program.� Stanhope said the board declined to set up a committee to take over the running of the reserve because doing so could cost as much as $150,000 per year, which would require voter assent. “That cost could then escalate,� he said.

Bottled water won’t be banned CONTINUED FROM FRONT

Mason said the board has a policy of supporting healthy food choices at its facilities and has included bottled water as a healthier alternative to pop and other carbonated and sugary beverages. “By eliminating that people could go to non-healthy choices,” she said. “We propose instead that we promote the use of public water without a ban on the sale of bottled water. We can provide bottled water as an option but also make water out of the tap available for people to fill up their water bottles.” City of Nanaimo director Bill Bestwick didn’t agree, calling it strange that the district would opt to sell something that comes out of the tap for free — with little difference between them. “We have tap water,” he said.

“It’s a healthy choice and it’s free.” His colleague, Nanaimo director Colleen Brennan didn’t much like the idea either, but was willing to support it. Alternate director Leann Salter was no fan, noting the plastic bottles area a huge problem, many of them floating offshore in a huge trash island the size of Texas. Nanaimo director John Ruttan stressed that the issue is one of water, rather than one of plastic. He was backed up by Qualicum Beach director Dave Willie. “We are not ready for this in many areas,” he said. “I can’t support a ban on bottled water until there is a full debate in the communities and the local council.” The motion against a ban passed.

New scam alert The RCMP are advising members of the East Indian community to be aware of a telephone lotto scam that surfaced this past weekend in Nanaimo. On Saturday, July 21 at approximately 10 a.m., a woman received a phone call from a man who introduced himself speaking only Punjabi and Hindi. The caller told the recipient they had won $50,000 in a lotto that was recently advertised on Channel 531 on the Shaw Network. This channel is watched primarily by people whose first language is either Punjabi or Hindi, and is very popular in the East Indian community on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. The caller stated that before the female could receive her winnings, she was required to pay an administrative fee of $625. She was then told to go to the TD Bank within the next 30 minutes and withdraw the money. “In this particular case, the person targeted knew it was a scam,” said RCMP Corporal Gary O’Brien, who noted the best thing to do is simply hang up and notify your friends and family. — NEWS staff

District backs off on Morello Road cleanup NEIL HORNER

news@pqbnews.com

A Nanoose Bay couple can breath a sigh of relief this week after the Regional District of Nanaimo directors voted to stop any further action regarding an unsightly premesis complaint.

The issue hit the papers this month after Ann Barber made two trips to the RDN to plead her case and that of her husband, Wayne, who collects antique machinery at their treed property on Morello Road.

At Tuesday night’s committee of the whole meeting a motion to take no further enforcement actions, as the property is substantially in compliance with the bylaw, was passed unanimously with no comment.

Falling on hard times, Dave King and Pepper, his friendly two and half-year-old St. Bernard, were lucky enough to stumble on the help of Ken “Doc” Meuckon and his emergency housing in Coombs. After 16 years of military service, the Afghanistan veteran found himself penniless with nine hungry puppies born on June 18. King said they will be completely checked by a vet but he will not get them “papered,” or registered as pure bred,

property is permitted for more people than they would want. There are currently around 14 people living there and they have space for a few more as people come and go. Doc, a former firefighter, iridologist and manufacturer of riding leathers, among other things said they have a strict zero tolerance policy with illegal drugs, but are otherwise open to helping most people. He admits they have had complications, people have taken advantage of them, but almost all of the 300 people he estimates they have hosted over the last 10 years have been gracious guests. Doc — who is also eager to teach people the secrets of Reiki for free — said people in need should call them at 250-752-5520 to work out how or if they can help.

Along with cheaper rentals they started Coombs Transitional Housing several years ago, but that stalled when the Vancouver Island Health Authority took issue with the lack of water treatment. The couple adjusted their finances to survive without rental income and for a while focused on very short term (a few days) emergency housing for situations like fires or natural disasters. Since then the water and swear issues have been sorted out and the

n eclectic property scattered with motor homes, trailers and small suites and cabins is back functioning as a safety net for those falling on hard times in the Coombs area. Dave King, an unemployed trucker and 16-year military veteran, including time in Afghanistan, can’t say enough nice things about property owners Ken “Doc” Meuckon and his wife Lana. King recently found himself split from his wife, without a cent to his name, trying to take care of nine St. Bernard puppies. Doc Meukon not only gave him a place to stay, but helped with dog food and tracked down an old car to help get him back on his feet. Kim, another resident who didn’t want her last name used, also found help after an ugly domestic situation. “I didn’t have a dime to my name and nowhere to go, which is especially hard with two dogs and cat,” she said before lavishing the Meuckons with praise. “Separation and divorce are a huge issue and that’s where a lot of them are coming from,” Doc said. “I’m amazed at the variety. We have ages from 16 to 60 coming in. Many are people with skills and trades. There’s some real depth to them but with the high rents around

Much ado about nothing

T

he battle between the premiers of British Columbia and Alberta makes for a great TV drama, but it remains unclear how much substance it really contains. Premier Christy Clark has outlined a series of conditions for her government’s approval of the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, one of which is the allocation of a bigger share of the pipeline’s revenues being accrued to this province. That proposal hit the ground with a big clang when Alberta premier Allison Redford flatly denied that was ever going to happen. The fight has made big headlines right across the country, but really, besides the drama, what real difference is any of this going to make about whether the Northern Gateway pipeline goes ahead or not? Considering that approval or rejection of the Enbridge proposal is entirely within the purvue of the federal government, we would suggest not all that much. That being said, it would be encouraging indeed for Clark to make a strong stand on a principle and then stick to it, regardless of electoral outcomes at a later date. British Columbians have had more than a bellyful of politicians making grand statements of principle in the period leading up to provincial election campaigns, only to change their minds and do a 360-degree turn once the polls close and the ballots are counted. Clark suggested there are concrete steps she could take to prevent the pipeline from being built across British Columbia, should her conditions not be met — steps such as denying permitting and access to the necessary electricity to do the job. It sounds like a strong, principled position and one that would likely garner a lot of support among a certain segment of the B.C. electorate. Is there more to it than hot air and puffery? That remains to be seen. — Editorial by Neil Horner

Letters BYE BYE TO BUNDLING Finally, broadcast companies are looking at the old bundling system as a failed system as the public demands more. Bell Media and Telus Corp have taken the step to ďŹ nally get away from the old habit of bundling junk with desirable programming. This ancient method of creating additional revenues under the guise of CRTC regulation has ďŹ nally gasped its last breath. This leap into the now will give the viewer the opportunity to pay for what he/she wants to watch and not what is bundled with what he/she wants to watch. Everyone will beneďŹ t. Billing individual channels at pay per channel per month will be available, quality of programming will increase as junk channels will not be purchased, more bandwidth will be available for meaningful programming. Those that fail to convert to this new system of delivery will lose enormous market share. BOB TRITSCHLER Parksville

HATS OFF TO COUNCIL My congratulations to Dean Dreger in his letter “Wheels off the Bus� (THE NEWS, July 13). It is so refreshing to read a thoughtful, analytical opinion without laying blame on one or more council members. His observation that the town gained 610 inhabitants in the 65-85 year old age bracket from 2006-2011 suggests the Town gear itself up to become the retail Antique capital of Vancouver Island. Look at the success of

“What we have is a rebirth of the river.� KEN KIRKBY, see story page A21

ALMANAC Government Contacts PROVINCIAL:

Glendale, Arizona. I do not view coun. Bill Luchtmeir’s statement that the council has too much control as being out of line but rather believe his statement is one of frustration because there is a lack of exibility on the part of the town. The town is desperate for some types of development but gone are the days of an abundance of what is referred to as Triple A tenants which encourage developers to do their thing — develop. With the shortage of retail demand this means future developments will have no need to include a commercial/retail component. A number of years ago a potential development located on First Ave. adjacent to the town hall was brought forward for consideration, however, the developer gave up in frustration because of the town’s inexibility for a slight height variance and the town’s demands, over and above the regular DCC, for an excessive ďŹ nancial contribution to cover speciďŹ c infrastructure improvement far removed from the site. This site remains undeveloped, thus, a lost opportunity resulting in low tax revenue. Someone at the time didn’t understand economics, the art of compromise or exibility. Many years ago society demanded large lots and urban sprawl spread like wildďŹ re with 75-foot frontage becoming the norm. Now the old Hudson Bay lots of 33 feet look rather sensible as does increased densiďŹ cation. However, densiďŹ cation and economics are greatly inuenced by height. Throughout B.C. there are many golf courses whose main core of membership are seniors who can often be reluctant to approve ďŹ nances for improvements and see little need for change. Without the necessary

improvements it is very difďŹ cult to attract younger members. Does the Town of Qualicum Beach ďŹ t into this scenario? DONN GARDNER Qualicum Beach

LOOKING FOR CLINT Keith Jackson’s letter (THE NEWS, July 17) comparing Qualicum Beach to Carmel, California, makes me wonder if he has ever been there. Carmel, with a population of about 4,000 has dozens of four and ďŹ vestar restaurants, a multitude of top hotels and funky lodgings. The stores and shops are some of the most interesting in North America. Does that come close to what we have in our beautiful little town by the sea? Not everyone would want all of that, but those are the facts. However there is one interesting parallel between our two towns. In 1986 Clint Eastwood, tired of getting the run-around and the punitive attitudes of a preservationist dominated council, ran for mayor and was successful in having the incumbent removed. His strategy was to build relations between the business community and the residential community so that meaningful change could take place. Not necessarily growth, but renewal and improvement, the very same issues our present council is dealing with, which seems to be of such great concern to so many of our residents. Is there a Clint Eastwood out there for Qualicum Beach? JIM BERGOT Qualicum Beach

Mudslide causes water restriction The Regional District of Nanaimo’s Nanoose Bay Peninsula Water Service Area is moving to Water Conservation Level 3 as a precaution to deal with anticipated additional erosion in clay banks along the Englishman River over the summer months. Residents of the Water Service Area may sprinkle for one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening instead of the two hours in the morning and two hours in the evening

allowed under Water Conservation [Level 2. However, residents are still permitted to water every other day. The Nanoose Bay Peninsula Water Service Area is served by both local groundwater wells and a connection, during the summer months, to the City of Parksville water supply. Losing the water from the City of Parksville connection puts significant pressure on the remaining ground-

Starving artists no more The term “starving artists” is simply a myth that everybody has bought, including artists, and dates back to Vincent van Gogh and the inaccurate portrayal of him as tragic figure. This is according to local artist Ken Kirkby, who decided he wants to remove that “starving” stereotype, at least locally. His first order of business (and certainly not his last) comes in the form of a book called Mythography: paintings by Ken Kirkby & Friends, poetry by Manolis. “I’ve been listening to and watching artists on our island and mostly what I hear has been the great unhappiness,” he said. Artists need to get themselves out there in a much larger way than many are aware of or know how to deal with, he said. Instead of competing with other artists and galleries, they are competing with the likes of the Rolling Stones the Vancouver Canucks and Walt Disney, he said, so artists need to work together and make themselves known.

water resource. “When there is a significant amount of clay eroding into the Englishman River, it means that this water source is temporarily unavailable,” said Area E director George Holme. “The result is that both the City of Parksville and the RDN Nanoose Bay Peninsula Water Service Area have to move to ground water sources only.”

Book to help local rivers

CONTINUED FROM PAGE A21

This was his thinking when he brought together a team of artists from the local area, as well as Courtenay, Campbell River and Vancouver and a Greek poet and publisher from White Rock to make this book. The result is a visually stunning group of artwork each complimented by a poem that successfully “gets into the skin” of each piece artwork, Kirkby said. All royalties from the sale of the books will go the Nile Creek Enhancement Society (NES), a non-profit organization recognized nationally for its efforts restoring salmon numbers. Over 20 years the group has helped return 20 million salmon fry to the ocean. “What we have is a rebirth of the river,” Kirkby said, “we are now looking at numbers of fish returning and are getting somewhere close to historical numbers,” Kirkby said, adding the group is listed as one of the most successful in the world of its kind. Many other projects are in the works based on the work at NES, including a major film and a large graphic book.

A book launch for Mythography will happen at the Sandbar Cafe in Qualicum Bay on Wednesday, August 8 at 1:30 p.m. with plenty of books to purchase and the artists on-site to chat and do signings. The same day in the same location another of Kirkby’s projects will take flight where renowned sculptors will come together to become better recognized while helping put Bowser on the map. The artists are being sponsored by many merchants in the area and the idea is to eventually have numerous public sculptures throughout the Bowser area, drawing people from far and wide. It will begin at the Sandbar Cafe this year with four sculptors gathering on August 8 and creating pieces from early morning to evening on August 9, 10 and 11. More information on this sculpting event will be included in THE NEWS Tuesday, July 31 edition. The Sandbar Cafe is located at 6087 W Island Highway.

Military riders mount up for charity Group takes to the road to help children who are visually impaired or suffering serious illness LISSA ALEXANDER

reporter@pqbnews.com

A barrage of motorcycle riders roared into Thrifty Foods in Parksville on Saturday to enjoy a free lunch while raising money for charity. The group was part of the Military Police National Motorcycle Relay Ride and were on a local leg of the journey across Canada, from Comox to Victoria. Thrifty Foods sponsors the group’s lunch every year.

The two charities benefiting from the ride are the Military Police Fund for Blind Children and the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. Leader of the ride and Petty Officer Second Class George Robinson said the group is made up of a mix of civilians and both retired and active military personnel. The ride takes place throughout July and August, with each region doing their own leg of the ride.

Robinson said personally he loves riding a motorcycle and feels it’s important to raise money for children in need. “There are a lot of children in need who don’t have a voice or the ability to raise the money we can raise,” Robinson said. Last year Robinson said the Ride raised $35,000 and this year they hope to raise $100,000 across Canada. To obtain more information about the group and to donate to this worthy charity visit their website at www.mpnmrr.ca.

City looks to offset carbon emissions AUREN RUVINSKY writer@pqbnews.com

B.C. municipalities are required to be carbon neutral as of this year, and since it is “physically impossible” for Parksville not to produce any greenhouse gases to meet the provincial mandate, they are looking at carbon offset options. Under the Climate Action Charter municipalities can buy carbon offsets with the Pacific Carbon Trust for $25 per ton, meaning an annual cost of $11,000 for Parksville, described as “relatively minor” by the staff report to council. Instead of sending that money to the provincial trust, to be spent on a project anywhere in B.C., Parksville starting a local version along with Nanaimo, Lantzville, Qualicum Beach and the regional district. Pooling their required offsets will generate

Fire calls dropping in Parksville Call volumes are dropping for the Parksville Fire Department. Chief Doug Banks gave his annual report to city council, explaining that calls have been dropping steadily from a high of over 500 in 2008 to 414 in 2011, of which 304 were emergency calls. “Our fire prevention officer is happy to take credit for the drop,” Banks quipped as he explained they don’t know the exact reason but it likely has to do with improved education, awareness and building and safety standards. Alarms accounted for the highest number of calls, at 90, of which many were “false alarms” which Banks said is a misleading term, since in those cases “the alarm systems have done their jobs,” in alerting the fire department. — Auren Ruvinsky

$231,000 a year for green house gas reducing projects within the region. The Regional Emission Reduction for Carbon Neutral Operations, Memorandum of Agreement has already been endorsed by the RDN board and Parksville council added their endorsement at Monday night’s meeting. Several councillors crumbled about having to pay it at all, since the emissions generated by running city buildings and vehicles can’t be eliminated. Mayor Chris Burger agreed it was in effect a green tax but at least this option allows them to keep the money somewhat local.

CASEY, VINCENT CHARLES It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Vincent Casey, of Parksville BC on July 22, 2012. Vince was born in King Township, Ontario on July 7, 1929. He will be dearly missed by his loving wife Brigid and his children, David (Wendy), Kelley Williams (Bill), John (Catharine), Laura, (mother Arlene) and Anna and Paul (Sophie) (mother Joan); grandchildren, Jennifer (Andrew), Amanda (Matt), Bill, Reta, Zoe, Jack, Spencer, Kaila, Alexia, Max, and great grandson, Benton. He is also survived by his brothers Joseph and Denis, sister Joan Caplice (Michael), and sister-in law, Denise. He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces and nephews and extended family and friends. Vincent was predeceased by his parents Charles and Anna, wife Joan, daughter Lynda, brother Edward and sister Eileen Lynett. Vince loved sports, and spent countless hours at the arena, the soccer ďŹ eld and the baseball diamond, either as a coach, volunteer or a proud fan of his kids. Giving back to the community was also very important to Vince. He was very involved with the Richmond Arenas Community Association, C.O.P.S. and the Canadian Cancer Society. Although he moved to BC in 1979, Vince remained a true fan of all teams in Toronto, especially his beloved Maple Leafs and the Blue Jays. He enjoyed visits from his grandchildren, which always put a smile on his face. Our family would like to extend a thank you to all the Community Health Workers and nurses, for the assistance and support over the past six months. A Memorial Mass for Vince will be held at 2:00 PM, on Thursday, August 2, 2012 at The Church of the Ascension, 887 Wembley Road, Parksville, followed by a reception. On-line condolences may be expressed at www.yatesfuneral.ca

Hoey home with BC Games silver

BY JAMES CLARKE sports@pqbnews.com

Parksvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Makayla Hoey is home from the BC Summer Games with a silver medal for her efforts on the hardwood. A standout with Oceanside Track & Field in her spare time, Hoeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; debut came in basketball, as the track events were only offered for 14 and 15-yearolds (Hoey just turned 13 this spring), while basketball was open to 13 and 14â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Hoey was one of the three 13-year-olds to make the team. Abby Lefeaux was the other local girl to make the squad, and although not competing over the weekend, Lefeaux was selected as an alternate and played a big role with the team leading up to the games. Hoey and her Zone 6 teammates opened the Summer Games with a 56-18 romp over North East; lost game two 54-37 to Fraser Valley, then clobbered Kootenay 63-13 to ďŹ nish second in Pool B.

In their crossover game against Fraser River/Delta, who ďŹ nished ďŹ rst in Pool A, it was the Islanders pulling off a thrilling 37-22 upset. Zone 6 lost to FV 44-32 in the ďŹ nal. One thing for certain, the team was well coached as they were led by UVic menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head coach Craig Beaucamp and his wife Tara who coaches girls basketball. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a lot of fun â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it was a cool experience,â&#x20AC;? Hoey, who plays on the Ballenas Whalersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jr. Girls basketball team, said easily when The News caught up with her, adding â&#x20AC;&#x153;the pressure was intense, but we did really well I think.â&#x20AC;? The Summer Games feature 22 events and break down into athletics, baseball, basketball, canoe/kayak; diving; equestrian; golf; inline hockey; box lacrosse; ďŹ eld lacrosse; rowing; rugby; sailing; soccer; softball; swimming (includes both Para and Special Olympics); synchronized swimming; towed water sports; triathJAMES CLARKE PHOTO lon; beach volleyball; indoor vol- Parksvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Makayla Hoey and her Zone 6 teammates took silver on the hardwood at the BC Summer leyball and wrestling.

Royals looking ahead to bumper crop BY JAMES CLARKE sports@pqbnews.com

Parksvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quality Foods Royals capped off their 2012 BCPBL campaign with a three-game set on Wednesday. The locals were trimmed by the Twins in North Shore 2-1, and 4-3 in extra innings, then ran out of gas and lost their make-up game against the Vancouver Cannons as part of the rare, and taxing, tripe-header. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played extremely well both gamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; against the Twins,â&#x20AC;? Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; skipper Dave Wallace said Thursday, adding â&#x20AC;&#x153;we out-hit them, out-pitched them ...we just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the breaks and made a couple mistakes that put is behind and

cost us the win, which was quite typical of the year.â&#x20AC;? Game three was also a good game until the late going. The Royals were leading that one 1-0 after two innings, the Cannons went up 3-1 after four, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and then those extra innings started taking its toll on our pitchers and we just ran out of arms.â&#x20AC;? Vancouver put up a bunch in the 6th and 7th and ďŹ nal read 14-2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For two and a half games we played very well, we just ran out of steam,â&#x20AC;? said Wallace. The Royals ďŹ nish the season at 13-35 and tied with White Rock for 12th out of the 13 teams league.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to get better each month and we did that,â&#x20AC;? Wallace replied when asked his take on the season, adding â&#x20AC;&#x153;all things considered a last place ďŹ nish in the league isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that disappointing considering how young our team was and the fact we never once ďŹ elded a full roster. The last month we played very well,â&#x20AC;? he said. Case in point, of the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top six leaders in strikeouts the last 30 days, three of them were Royals â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Bryan Pawlina, Clayton Isherwood, and Nic Annau. The Royals wrapped up their season Thursday night with their annual team awards BBQ. In the meantime, the Royals only lose

four players to graduation this year. Royalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ace Isherwood is off to Italy in Mid-August for the Team Canada training camp and then to South Korea the end of the month for the World Youth Baseball Championships. Isherwood, who appeared in 27 games for the Royals over his three years with the team and compiled a 15-6 record, leaves with a phenomenal strikeout-to-walk ratio of 5.4-1 (186-34) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 2 to 1 is considered good. After the Worlds, Isherwood starts the next chapter of his life at San Jacinto College outside Houston Texas, considered one of the best baseball programs in the U.S. See STRONG, page A30

Youth Soccer

Take a swing at speedminton Amid the excitement of the ongoing Beachfest everyone is invited to try the new sport of “speedminton,” or speed badminton, in the Parksville Community Park this weekend. “Parksville is the perfect place for this game, with its fabulous beaches and park areas. Because you don’t use a net, you can be at play in minutes,” said Michele Matthews who brought the sport to Canada. She said she will have lots of speed racquet’s and “speeders” — shorter, narrower, heavier shuttlecocks — for people of all ages to play with. Combining elements of badmin-

ton, squash and tennis and played without a net, it can be played in winds up to 27 km/h, in the water or at night. Plus, Matthews said “it’s so much fun that most people don’t realize they’re getting a great workout while they play.” It was developed in Germany by former badminton player Bill Brandes who was frustrated that he couldn’t play outside and it is now played around the world. They will be set up all weekend (July 28-29) from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more on the sport check www.speedminton.ca, for other activities in the park this weekend check www.parksvillebeachfest.ca. — Submitted

From the greens comes word that thunder, lightening and torrential rains could not stop the energy level shown in the final game of the three day Gold Bowl Triples Lawn Bowling Tournament in Nanaimo last Sunday. Rain delays halted the action for at least 45 minutes while players waited for the weather to clear. Eventually, Nanaimo’s more experienced team skipped by Rick Quibell with Mary Broughton as lead and Vern Greenhill as third came up the winner over the up and coming tenderfoot team from Parksville. Parksville skip Ken Bucyk was very pleased with his front end shot makers by lead Carol Bucyk and third Rick Dolley and made the point “to have gotten this far this early in our team’s career was a major accomplishment.” The Gold Bowl has been one of the feature events of Nanaimo’s lawn bowling calendar since 1990 and was designed to attract the more competitive bowlers from the Victoria and Greater Vancouver area as well as Vancouver Island by offering much bigger money prizes. Thirty-two teams entered this year’s tourney which began on the Friday night and concluded Sunday afternoon. GAME ON A reminder the Parksville Lawn Bowling Club will be hosing the annual Mens and Ladies Triples Open this weekend. — James Clarke

387 athletes and 73 coaches from Vancouver Island-Central Coast (Zone 6) competed at the 2012 BC Summer Games. Thank you to the coaches, officials, volunteers, and families who support these growing champions.

Royals’ lefty Clayton Isherwood watching a ball drift foul, made his final appearance for the local club last Saturday.

“at this level they need to develop so they can move on to college and take their game to the next level, and that’s the difference here.” “I have, definitely,” Dave answered quickly when asked if he’s seen any changes his

boys’ game. “He’s playing with more confidence now.” GAME ON: To register for the Royals’ Fall Ball program on line go to www.parksvilleroyals.com/club/development.

Sandhu surmised easily alongside the third base line fence last Saturday. Sandhu said it was a conversation they had with San Francisco Giants’ Pacific Northwest scout Jim Chapman out of Langley, that prompted them to call the Royals. “He loves it, they both do,” dad said of the boys, adding “Dave Wallace is a good coach he’s patient with the boys, and one thing we learned is that it’s all about player development here, it really is,” Sandhu explained when asked why the boys decided to play for Parksville, adding “there’s a lot of pressure on the Mainland kids where it’s win win win, and what does that do for them really? They don’t need to learn how to win a game at this point — they do that in Peewee,” he said as a linedrive whizzed past, and made the point

Midget Redmen, and Parksville’s Mackenzie Parlow (catcher), who is eligible to play for the Royals next year, is attending UVic. “But the other 11 are all eligible to come back and I believe are coming back,” Royals’ head coach Dave Wallace said looking ahead, adding those 11 returnees “are the most ever — usually it’s around six or seven, so we’ll have a strong nucleus. We’ll still be young, but we’ll have a strong nucleus.” Two of those players who have already said they’ll be back next season for their senior year are Calvin Sandhu who pitches and plays 1st, and Clarke Ohman (pitcher/left field) — both players started the season with the Vancouver Cannons but opted to play for Parksville instead. “The commute’s not that bad — it’s also good to get out of the city for us,” dad Dave

They go by the name of the Holy Rollers and this group of dedicated pie bakers made 200 tasty pies for the 40th annual St. Mark’s Fair taking place July 28 in Qualicum Beach.

St. Mark’s Fair to be sweet as pie

BRENDA GOUGH

reporter@pqbnews.com

With well over 140 stalls carrying goods including art, jewelry, fresh baked food items, antiques and more, bargain hunters are sure to find plenty of treasures during the 40th annual St. Mark's Fair Saturday, July 28 running from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. A huge draw at the massive bazaar are the homemade pies which always sell out quickly. Last year customers lined up to purchase the 146 pies for sale and within 15 minutes all of them were gone. This year there are 200 pies for sale and there are some new rules surrounding the highly sought after sweet treats. Suzanne Adkins who is part of the St. Mark’s Fair organizing team said this year each customer will only be allowed to buy two pies. Tamara Douglas who was in charge of the church pie-baking crew, which also

goes by the name of The Holy Rollers, agreed the pies are to-die-for and insisted the old saying about too many cooks in the kitchen doesn't apply to her team. “It's no problem. They are all excellent and experienced bakers and I wouldn't dare tell them how to go about making pies,” chuckled the boss who enjoyed going by the title of her Royal Highness

(HRH) during the pie baking bees at the church. In all there were 13 holy rollers this year who baked 100 pies on July 9 and on July 13 whipped up another 100. All the ingredients for the pies were donated by people in the parish. The fruit came from their gardens and Quality Foods donated the apples.

Local author at the fair

LISSA ALEXANDER

reporter@pqbnews.com

Reg Quist has written a lot of material over the years on an array of topics, but it’s his prairie roots that shone through in his newly published Western novel, Mac’s Way, and he’s not surprised. “I think it’s my Alberta heritage,” said the Parksville resident. “My family’s all been ranchers and farmers, it’s sort of in the blood.” Although Quist was raised in a small city in Alberta, he comes from a family of rural farmers and that may be why Western fiction is his topic of choice today. See MAC’S, page B2

The 10-inch pies will be sold for $10 each and include apple, rhubarb, strawberry-rhubarb, bumbleberry, pecan and raisin. This year for the first time there is a 40th anniversary cookbook for sale which includes family recipes from members of the congregation including the highly sought after pie recipes. All proceeds from the very popular event go back into the local community to benefit a number of worthwhile causes. In the past these have included helping the Eagle Park seniors’ facility, the hot lunch program at Qualicum Beach Middle School and the Young Life Program for young people at risk in the community. Adkins said the event features a huge selection of books, many of them rare antiques and New to You women's clothing and there are some great bargains to be had.

Mac’s Way has real-life characters CONTINUED FROM PAGE B1

He and his wife moved to Nanaimo 40 years ago and 10 years ago he made the move to Parksville. Mac’s Way is Quist’s second novel, about a man who leaves a life of poverty to find a better life for himself. There are outlaws, deadly cattle drives, hard times, colourful characters, romance and life lessons in the book. Quist said rather than a typical shoot-em-up type Western, he wanted the book to focus on the people. The characters in the book are very typical of real-life characters, he said. “You can find those kind of people all through the history books with the struggles and the hardships and the hard work and the determination… that’s all very true historically.”

Qualicum cum Bottle & Recycling De Depot Ltd.

And the history and locations in the book were throughly researched and also ring true. Mac’s Way was published through a small company in Arizona, and his first book, Mister Lister Comes Home was self-published. This book is a collection of short stories from a child’s point of view growing up in the 1940’s. The tales include horse drawn delivery wagons, the impact of war on families, outdoor skating rinks and more. Quist will be at St. Mark’s Fair in Qualicum Beach this Saturday selling signed copies of his new book. He invites people to his booth #506 for a book or just a chat. For more on Quist check out his website www.regquist.com.

TOSH’s 100th birthday Saturday LISSA ALEXANDER

reporter@pqbnews.com

Celebrate the birthday of a venerable Qualicum Beach institution this weekend, as The Old School House arts centre (TOSH) building celebrates 100 years of active service. Activities are planned throughout the day involving an incredible amount of art, music and entertainment. “Although this building started off as a wonderful school it has evolved into a vibrant art centre and so we felt this was the best way to honour it’s 100th birthday,” said TOSH director Corinne James. The day’s events kick off at 11 a.m. with the popular Grand Prix d’Art, a painting race where artists paint en plain air (in the open air) around Qualicum Beach. An Art in Action arts festival will happen throughout the day with artisans of many levels and mediums displaying and selling their wares. This includes a kids arts tent where kids can create their own acrylic masterpiece and take it home. Canada’s oldest continuous concert band

A magic show will take place around 1 p.m. with an internationally recognized magician. “He has come out of retirement, because he’s in his 90s, and he’s going to do a little show... and he's fantastic,” said James. A Taiko Drumming concert at 2 p.m. will feature two celebrated Japanese drummers as well as their students. Other Taiko ensembles from Vancouver and Victoria will also delight audiences with their music. A cake cutting will take place at 3:30 p.m. with an address from the mayor and a former student of the building, and give onlookers a sweet treat.

In addition, TOSH is still celebrating 25 years of the arts centre in the building. A special exhibition is running in the art gallery featuring successful veteran resident artists: potter Larry Aguilar, glass blower Ted Jolda and wood turner Jason Marlow.

Coombs Bluegrass Festival coming LISSA ALEXANDER

reporter@pqbnews.com

The oldest bluegrass festival in B.C. is fast approaching and this year the organizers of the Coombs Bluegrass Festival have added an extra day. “We figure we may as well, everybody’s there anyway," said organizer Linda Thorburn. This year the 34th annual Coombs Bluegrass Festival runs from August 2 to 5, and features a name synonymous with bluegrass, Pete Wernick, aka Dr. Banjo. “He’s probably one of the best banjo players in the world,” said Thorburn, adding, “one of the most well known ones.” Thorburn said she bought her first banjo book from Wernick in 1981 when there were only two available, the other by Earl Scruggs. Dr. Banjo and his wife will be performing Thursday evening, and with his band, Long Road Home, on Friday night. He will also be hosting mini jam classes on Thursday and Friday during the festival, those interested can sign up through the Coombs Bluegrass website. Dr. Banjo will also hold a free workshop on

Saturday at noon, and a schedule of other free workshops can be found on the Coombs Bluegrass website, including slow pitch, guitar, bass and fiddle. There are twelve superlative bluegrass bands playing this year, from around the United States and Canada and Thorburn is certain they will draw a big crowd. Last year there was a record turnout at the festival, including twice as many campers. This was made possible by moving the day parking down the street and utilizing all the space at the grounds for camping, which will happen again this year. There will be a number of food vendors, merchandise, and draws at the festival and plenty of parking lot pickin’. Tom Lee Music will be selling acoustical instruments, strings and picks and Griffin Instrument Technologies will also be onsite to repair guitars, do small adjustments and minor set ups. Get your tickets at the gate starting Thursday morning (August 2) at 9 a.m. A four-day pass is $110 for adults, $85 for under 18 (camping included) and under 12 is free. Day and evening passes are also available. Visit www. coombsbluegrass.com for more information.

His signature pieces have been presented to presidents, prime ministers and heads of state around the world and the latest creations by local glass artist Ted Jolda are now on display in an exhibition at The Old School House (TOSH) in Qualicum Beach. Jolda is one of Canada’s best known glass artists and his ever changing glass creations continue to win hearts including the likes of Oprah and Queen Margrethe II of Denmark. Although Jolda calls Parksville home he has received international recognition for his work which is in collections of the royal houses of the Netherlands and England. Working primarily in glass since 1985, Jolda continues to stretch his boundaries creating new glassware and sculptures on a daily basis. His inspiration comes from many sources but these days the glass maestro’s enthusiasm is guided by the Englishman River as well as the ocean which are just steps from his home. Jolda said his ocean going vessels adorned with images applied with the copper inlay method came about after collaboration with Native American artist Rafael Navarro Leiton. “We did a series called spirit vessels which had the cave paintings from Utah where Rafael grew up and did river rafting for years. He would do the images and I would do the glass and we would make these huge pieces … some were 20 pounds and about two and a half feet high. The Queen of Denmark has one in her personal collection,” Jolda pointed out. He said eventually they incorporated other images into the pieces. “We started working with the fish … the salmon. Raf is quite a fisherman and my father was a commercial fisherman and it is a wonderful West Coast image,” he admitted. Jolda confessed that when he saw one of fellow artist Dee Aguilar’s pieces a while back he decided to add even more sea life to his repertoire. “Dee had a piece three months ago that had a prawn which she showed me. It inspired me to incorporate other sea creatures into the pieces… prawns, starfish, jellyfish. I get so excited with them and I have been working like a maniac making these pieces,” he pointed out. Jolda has been working with copper on glass for 27 years now. “It is a way to get direct imagery on to the glass. I cut out the little images and I score them… it is like making little paper dolls. They just translate so well,” he acknowledged. He said the killer whales on the vessels are made out of pure silver and he spends many hours creating the delicate images. He uses texturing tools for kelp and wave ac-

tion and the result is almost like having a little fish tank when you peer into the vessels. “It’s like looking down into the river when you look in… they come alive,” he described. If you want to meet the talented glass artist in person, check out the Qualicum Beach Artisans Market, every Friday night this summer from 3 to 9 p.m., beside TOSH. Also sharing the main gallery at TOSH with an extraordinary display of their internationally acclaimed work are potter Larry Aguilar and wood turner Jason Marlow. The current exhibition, part of the 100th anniversary celebration of TOSH, features some of the finest three-dimensional work to be found on Vancouver Island. Marlow is recognized internationally for his innovative and original pieces. One of Canada’s most distinguished wood turners, Marlow established his studio in 1981 and uses indigenous woods of British Columbia. Particularly known for his signature helmets, he produces large scale wall pieces and a range of smaller objects inspired by Vancouver Island forests, rivers, mountains and wildlife. Aguilar’s reputation has grown to multiple award-winning status both as a potter and as a gardener. The master of Bonsai is deeply influenced by the simplicity of nature and his delicate brushwork and glaze techniques evoke an Oriental flavour. Fine porcelain, functional stoneware, vibrant raku, pit-fired art pieces and lamps are created by this alchemist from mud to magic in his pottery studio and gallery in Qualicum Beach. He has been a potter for over 30 years in Oceanside and his wife Dee joined in the studio over 10 years ago. You can see or purchase the unique pieces by the three talented artists. The exhibition at TOSH runs until August 12.

In March of this year the First Open Heart Society (FOHS) Mid Island Chapter lost one of its own when Douglas Reid, a past-chairman and inspiration to society members, passed away. Doug’s positive influence was found in every aspect of the mid-Island chapter through his passion to share his knowledge and experience regarding heart health, to the diligent work he did “quietly behind the scenes.” In honour of his commitment to those facing heart-related conditions the mid-Island chapter recently donated $2,700 to the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation for the purchase of a crash cart for the new emergency department now under construction at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Protecting our province from the harmful effects of used oil and antifreeze must be a responsibility we all share, together. So please, next time you look to dispose of used oil or antifreeze materials, find a collection facility near you. Here are three easy ways to do so:

Sadly, much of the time, little or no spiritual care is provided to, nor received by patients in hospitals. In our local hospitals, indeed most hospitals wherever you are, there is a service called ‘Spiritual Care.’ Hospital chaplains are part of the health care team and specialize in providing spir-

In a continued effort to encourage higher rates of recovery, BCUOMA has built a strong support network across the province. Today, participation includes 209 brand-owner members, 39 collectors and processors, 520+ return collection facilities and more than 4,000 generators. In addition, BCUOMA is reprising its successful ambassador program this summer – with two ambassadors touring the province to educate and raise awareness of the importance of used oil and antifreeze recycling.

Although it’s commonly accepted that oil and antifreeze are not household garbage we can simply throw out, more than one million litres of used oil ends up in BC landfills every year. When you consider that it only takes one drop of oil to contaminate a million drops of water, the problem is clear: there’s just too many drops to count, too many to ignore. BCUOMA is a non-for-profit organization that encourages British Columbians to responsibly recycle used oil, oil filters, oil containers, used antifreeze and antifreeze containers. Since the launch of the program in 2003, British Columbians have done an exceptional job of recycling their used oil materials.

and friends, who are hospitalized for one reason or another. Occasionally, a patient in the next bed, or some one in the corridor will call out when they see a clergy person, a conversation will ensue, and we are always very happy to reach out and be present to anyone whatever their need.

ONE DROP MAKES A DIFFERENCE. 2011 RECOVERY RATES

By recycling your used oil and antifreeze products, you’re playing an important role in preserving our environment for future generations. As of July 1, 2011 antifreeze and antifreeze containers have been included within the broader recycling program. From the 10 million litres of automotive antifreeze sold in BC each year, about 45% will be available for collection and recycling. Please check for a collection facility near you.

itual care to patients, family members, and also to hospital staff. Quoting from the VIHA Spiritual Care Services brochure, “Chaplains serve people of all faiths, as well as people who do not have a religious affiliation. A Chaplain has compassion for what you are going through; listens; respects your culture, traditions and beliefs; doesn’t judge you; offers words of hope, encouragement and comfort; keeps what you say confidential; will pray with you, and for you, if you ask; can help connect you with your own faith community.” Respect for privacy and concern for personal preferences, mean that no assumptions will be made about your need for spiritual care, and services will not be offered without a request. So, may I offer the following suggestions? If you or a loved one, find yourself admitted to a hospital, consider first that your restoration to wholeness extends beyond your body to mind and spirit — how you feel about yourself, your stresses and worries, will affect your physical healing. Be assured if you ask to speak to a chaplain your own beliefs and convictions will be treated with the utmost of respect. If you are a member of a particular faith community please ensure that they know where you are so that members may pray for you and visit as appropriate. When we are in distress or feeling weak, the gentle presence of another human being can be most helpful. They may listen, offer words of wisdom, read something inspiring or comforting, pray, or just be with you in silence. Rev. Alan Naylor is at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, Qualicum Beach

The bricks and mortar part of a refit to the Ravensong Aquatic Centre in Qualicum Beach may be complete, but staff are now working on revamping the programs offered there — and they want help from you. The Regional District of Nanaimo wants to learn more about the short-and-long-term aquatic service needs of District 69 residents and have invited members of the public to visit www.rdn.bc.ca to complete a short needs assessment survey. The survey can also be downloaded and returned to Ravensong Aquatic Centre or Oceanside Place once completed. “The information gleaned from this needs assessment survey will assist the RDN in planning a range of aquatic programming to best fit the communities we serve,” said Reg Nosworthy, the chair of the District 69 Recreation Commission. “I strongly encourage all District 69 residents to take the time to let us know what type of programming they would like to see at Ravensong.” Ravensong Aquatic Centre opened in October of 1995 and underwent a $5.2 million upgrade in 2010. Programs at the Centre are designed for all ages and abilities. Aquatic program participants and taxpayers from the Electoral Areas F, G and H, and the municipalities of Parksville and Qualicum Beach, all support the operation of Ravensong Aquatic Centre. Survey results will be compiled until Sept. 30 and will be presented to the District 69 Recreation Commission and the RDN board in the fall. The results will also be made available to the public. — Submitted by RDN

hen it comes to volunteering, the Smiths go above and beyond the call of duty in Qualicum Beach. That community spirit was recognized by the municipality recently when the Town of Qualicum Beach honoured community volunteers at the Town of Qualicum Beach Volunteer Appreciation Reception held at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre. A group of distinguished guests including Parksville-Qualicum MLA Ron Cantelon joined members of council to celebrate local volunteers. “A community is only as strong as its citizens and volunteers provide the most active, honorable examples of people making an extra effort to help in our society,” said Mayor Teunis Westbroek. “These individuals make our community a wonderful place to live, visit and do business in. I have to add that it was a true challenge this year to choose between the dedicated nominees for the Above and Beyond Award. They are all worthy of high praise and did not make our selection process an easy one.” The Above and Beyond Volunteer Recognition Award is given annually to someone who has demonstrated an extraordinary effort to accomplish a task and who exemplifies good character, leadership, selflessness and integrity. Recipients are nominated by members of the community. The recipient must have been actively engaged for at least one year in volunteer activities that benefit the community of Qualicum Beach. This year’s recipients are Joy and Keith Smith for their work as volunteers, mentors and leaders in the community. The couple was recognized for their work with in impressive array of local projects, organizations, and events including: s !CTIVELY PARTICIPATING IN A COMMUNITY fundraising project to purchase and protect the Heritage Forest on the Brown property; later acting as director and president of the preserva-
