The Comox Valley Food Bank has received notice from its landlord, Habitat for Humanity, to vacate its space at 13th Street in Courtenay by Aug. 31. The notice was not unexpected. The food bank has for some time been searching for its seventh location since opening 28 years ago. It operated for 21 years out of a site at Piercy Avenue. JEFF HAMPTON “We’ve got a couple of ideas happening right now, but I can’t really elaborate on them,” CVFB president Jeff Hampton said this week. “If I do get the go-ahead I’m going to keep it quiet for a while longer because when we were going into Cousins Avenue area, when the cat was out of the bag that we were going in, all hell broke loose. We’d like to be a little quieter this time.” Last year, the food bank had hoped to move to Cousins Avenue in Tin Town but the site was inadequately zoned. Off-street parking was an issue. A plea from Habitat explaining the need for both organizations to expand appeared in local newspapers. It garnered two replies. “It was done on a Habitat slant as opposed to the food bank,” Hampton said. “They’re trying to do their build on Piercy Avenue and they want more space. They want to expand their ReStore.” Ideally, the food bank needs about 2,000 square feet in a semipermanent location. The building at 1755B 13th St. is about 1,700 square feet. Statistics indicate the Comox Valley Food Bank’s clientele represents about 18 per cent of the local population. reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Trying to make surfing friends – one at a time Scott Stanfield Record Staff

‘God will surf with the devil if the waves are good.’ The phrase was coined by Dorian (Doc) Paskowitz, the Father of Israeli Surfing and a source of inspiration behind Surfing With The Devil, In Search of Waves and Peace in the Middle East, a second book penned by Cumberland author Grant Shilling. The recently-released e-book is the culmination of a journey that began in February of 2009 when the writer/artist/surfer handdelivered a bunch of wetsuits to the Gaza Surf Club in Israel. While delighted with the gifts, the Arab, Israeli and Palestinian club members thought Shilling was crazy to surf in 18-degree water in shorts during their winter. “It was quite a trip to be surfing in the Middle East. Nobody pictures it as a surfing destination,” said

Shilling, a street outreach worker at the Dawn to Dawn: Action on Homelessness Society. Shilling has an interest in acknowledging things before they start happening, such as the emerging surf culture in the Middle East. The sport has its limitations in Gaza, where he notes a shortage of equipment due to the restrictions that are placed on people’s freedom. But despite the political chaos, life goes on in this corner of the world. “People want all the same things that we have,” Shilling said. “They’re kind of enslaved by their own masters and by their socalled enemies. But when you start playing together and having fun together you kind of demystify the enemy ... It’s less about being a political act and just trying to make one friend at a time.” While he realizes surfing

is not the answer to problems in the Middle East, Shilling recognizes that it can build bridges and create what Paskowitz calls ‘moments of peacefulness.’ “My motto on the trip to the Mid-East was fun beats fundamentalism,” said Shilling, whose trip p grew out of a “sense of complete despair” over what’s happening in thee region. “And the only way for-ward is peace. The greatest test percentage of Israelis and nd Gazans and Palestinians, s, they want the same things. ngs. They want peace, they want to raise their fami-lies. A year after his trip too Gaza, Shilling ventured to Egypt to meet the surfing ng Bedouins near Alexandria. ria. Red tape prevented him from bringing Israeli surfer rfer and skateboard champion on Arthur Rashkovan, whom m he had hoped would create ate a bond between Israelis and Egyptians. Like the Gazans, the latter were thrilled with h their new equipment and d contact with the outside world. Shilling undertook a third trip in 2011 to Hunntington Beach, Calif., dururing the 10th anniversary y of 9-11, to speak to surfers ers about using the sport ass a

grassroots peacemaker — a concept he ponders in the book. While in the birthplace of surfing in the U.S., he met a host of characters including a SyrianAmerican Muslim woman who surfs in a ‘burqini,’ a man as the a known o t e SurfSu ing Rabbi, and of course Paskowitz, who is still surfing in his 90s. Doc is credited with introducing the sport to Israel in 1956 when he brought six boards to the country. “When he went there, the Suez crisis broke out and there was a war going on,” Shilling said. Ignoring the objections of authorities, Doc rode his first wave at Tel Aviv. He then gave his first lesson to an Arab life-

guard — and ever since has been trying to bring Arabs and Israelis together through surfing. “I would say the devil in this is the unknown,” Shilling said in reference to the book title. “Once you get to know that person, disaptthat at kind d oof idea dea d sap sa pears. “It’s idealistic, but where’s the political process got us for the past 60 years? Maybe we should try something else. For surfing you could substitute

music, you could substitute art, you could substitute soccer — anything that’s a common ground, a common passion where you get supposedly adversarial people together over a similar passion. You can accomplish a lot.” Thee boo book ca can be found ou d at www.surfingwiththedevil.com. Shilling’s first book, The Cedar Surf, f provides an informal history of surfing in B.C. It was briefly a B.C. bestseller. Both books are available at amazon.ca. reporter@comoxvalley record.com

AUTHOR GRANT SHILLING of Cumberland is seen at top with Dorian (Doc) Paskowitz, the Father of Israeli Surfing. Shilling visited the Gaza Surf Club (also pictured) in 2009. He later wrote a book about his experience.

One year until Target opens here Record Staff There is only one more year until Comox Valley residents will no longer have to trek to the U.S. to go shopping at Target. The company announced Thursday it will open a store in the Driftwood Mall in Courtenay in the summer of 2013. The announcement follows an announcement in January, when the Minneapolis-based retailer purchased up to 220 leaseholds currently operated as Zellers stores for $1.825 billion from the Hudson Bay Company, which owns the Zellers Inc. subsidiary. Freda Colbourne, media spokesperson for Hudson Bay, told the Record in January that

Planning a social occasion?

Target had 220 stores to choose from. “They may take them all; they may take less,” she added. Fisher told media the announcement is the first wave in stores that will be converted, with 15 in total across B.C. Founded in 1670, Hudson’s Bay Company is a conglomerate that operates the Bay, Zellers, Home Outfit-

ters and Fields stores. Competing against other discount retail giants, Target operates in nearly all of the United States offering “trend-forward” merchandise at low cost, as opposed to the traditional concept of focusing on low-priced goods. Target also announced it will open its Canadian headquarters in Mississauga,

Ont. In September, the company will announce a second wave of store sites, added Fisher. In addition to the Driftwood Mall location, other Zellers stores on the Island slated to convert to Target include Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre in Campbell River, Nanaimo North Town Centre and Tillicum Mall in Victoria. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Water flow increasing into Puntledge River Beginning Sunday night, BC Hydro will increase the discharge from Comox Dam by about 50 per cent and keep it at that level Monday through Friday next week to control the Comox Lake Reservoir level. BC Hydro advises the public to be cautious of the Puntledge River during those days. BC Hydro is currently releasing about 32 cubic metres per second from its Comox Dam. The water discharge below the dam will increase to about 45 m3/s by Monday morning. BC Hydro will then bring down the river flow to 32 m3/s out of consideration for weekend recreation. It is likely river flows will be increased again, with caution signage, for the following week during weekdays to help move water out of the reservoir (Comox Lake). Tubers should be cautious of the higher-than-normal river flows. As of late Thursday morning, the reservoir was at 135.05 metres and slowly rising, and was only about 25 centimetres from freespilling over the dam.

The levels have been coming up with the

Elderly pilot succumbs Record Staff An as-yet-unidentified 74-yearold man has died as a result of injuries arising from the crash of an ultralight plane in the Black Creek area. The man died in a Victoria hospital, Comox Valley RCMP reported Thursday. The plane was heard to lose power, and crashed Saturday night

into some treetops about 100 feet high, RCMP said earlier. The pilot fell from the plane, landing on the ground below. He was taken to the hospital in Campbell River, then airlifted to Victoria General Hospital. The pilot’s name will not be released out of respect for the family, Comox Valley RCMP stated Thursday. The cause of the crash is still being investigated.

He noted rather than taking the ferry, there are many people using the seaplane service to travel back-and-forth to Vancouver for medical appointments. “You can be back by 1 p.m. the same day,” he noted.

Following a Blue Communities presentation from Linda Safford on behalf of local branches of the Vancouver Island Water Watch Coalition and the Council of Canadians, Cumberland council resolved Monday to move towards eliminating the sales of bottled water at concessions. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision also includes vending machines or Village facilities where tap water is available. Coun. Kate Greening, who does not have a problem with bottled water, opposed the motion. The coalition and council suggest bottled water represents a private takeover where corporations bottle and sell water at exorbitant rates. The groups have also asked other Valley municipalities to recognize water as a human right, and to promote publicly owned and operated water and wastewater infrastructure. Council voted in favour of the former and an amended version of the latter with wastewater removed. They resolved to lobby senior levels of government to invest in water infrastructure funding and to build new systems. Coun. Conner Copeman opposed the resolution, which will be forwarded to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to restrict ourselves,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Dog owners are invited to an official opening of Cumberlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off-leash dog park Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Village Park.

Estuary plants examined The next Experience the Estuary activity this Sunday will be a plant identification walk at the confluence of the Puntledge and Tsolum rivers. This outing is part of the series of events co-ordinated by Project Watershed Society, part of the 2012 Keeping it Living campaign raising awareness for the protection and restoration of the Courtenay River (K’ómoks) estuary. The influence of the estuary’s brackish waters extend upstream to encompass the lower portion of these rivers. The outing will be led by Barb Whyte of the K’ómoks First Nation, a registered aboriginal agricultural wildcrafter with a medical background. Meet at 1 p.m. at Riverside Park on Anderton Avenue in Courtenay (near the outdoor fitness equipment across from the Florence Filberg Centre). From there, participants will carpool to the start of the walk. The trail is rough and may be wet if it has rained. The walk is by donation ($8 to 10 suggested) with proceeds going to the Keeping it Living 2012 campaign. Pre-registration is required as numbers will be limited. Contact estuary.projectwatershed@gmail. com by July 13. The 2012 Keeping it Living finale Day of the Estuary on July 28 is fast approaching — with opportunities to Experience the Estuary with children’s events, nature walks, a flotilla across the estuary, and indoor displays; and the Art for the Estuary silent auction and competition, prints and posters, and draw prizes. Visit the Keeping it Living website at www. keepingitliving.ca for more information on the day, to view the art, and to bid online for it. — Project Watershed Come in for our

You can fight greenhouse gases COMOX VALLEY FREE Wheelers Angela Dawson, Sue Fabrizio, Marg Harris, Evelyn Hiscock, Gladys Schmidt and Roz Smith rode in the Grape Escape.

Free Wheelers combatting MS Imagine a world free from multiple sclerosis where no one would receive the life altering diagnosis of this unpredictable and often debilitating disease. MS affects between 55,000 and 75,000 Canadians with three people being diagnosed each day. It affects not only the person diagnosed but their family, friends and coworkers. The Cowichan Valley Grape Escape is a two-day tour, now in its 12th year, open to all cycling levels, which is part of the National MS Bike Tour, the largest cycling event in Canada. Based at Shawnigan Lake School this year, the event offered cyclists the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Southern Vancouver Island hospitality, wines, artisans, cuisine and breathtaking scenery while helping raise money for Canadian research into the cause and cure of multiple sclerosis.

On July 16, the Comox Valley Regional District is holding a free information session so people can learn about the electoral area home energy incentive program, aimed at helping residents save money on efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The session will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the CVRD boardroom at 550B Comox Rd. in Courtenay. There will be certified energy advisers on hand to provide information on the energy assessment process and rebates for existing homes, new home construction and major renovations. The session is free, but space is limited so pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, e-mail propertyservices@comoxvalleyrd.ca or call 250-334-6006. The program begins July 23 and runs until year end. The home retrofit program was developed to offset the costs of the two home energy assessments that are required to become eligible for the LiveSmart

Local butterfly count resuming Comox Valley Nature is renewing its annual traditional of carrying out an annual butterfly count. Butterfly counts as an important index of insect and floral diversity and an excellent way to monitor climate variations and environmental stressors. This is a unique opportunity to learn to identify local butterflies. Although originally planned for June, the butterfly count had to bemoved due to the record precipitation experienced in June. The count will be held this Saturday. Participants should meet at 10 a.m. at the Old Church Theatre on Harmston Street in Courtenay, or at 10:30 at Cumberland Marsh. Parking

is at Jumbo’s Cabin. This public activity is free of cost and is open to people of all ages. Butterflies will be counted and professionally identified by Terry Thormin. Photographer and naturalist extraordinaire, Terry Thormin recently retired to the Comox Valley after 23 years at the Royal Alberta Museum where he curated the entomology collection. Terry has been a naturalist all his life and first became interested in insects in his early teens. Anyone interested in an illustrated insight into the world of Terry should visit www. pbase.com/terrythormin. Comox Valley Nature is a non-profit society affiliated to BC Nature which fulfills its

educational mandate by hosting monthly lectures, organizing weekly guided hikes and undertakes a variety of environmental projects. Founded in 1966, it is one of the oldest environmental societies on the North Island. Meetings and lectures of the Comox Valley Naturalists Society are held on the third Sunday of most months at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay. Meetings and guided walks are open to the public, including children and youth. (No dogs on walks, please). New memberships are always welcomed. For more information on CVNS, visit www.comoxvalleynaturalist.bc.ca or contact L. Maingon at 250-331-0143. — Comox Valley Nature

Blood donation will help others Comox Valley residents are urged to help ‘top-up’ the blood supply at their local blood donor clinic before heading off on their summer travels. Canadian Blood Services needs 4,300 more donors across Canada to book an appointment and donate blood between July 16 and Aug. 6. “We need 800 appointments in B.C. booked this summer to keep up with hospital demand, and patients are counting on more people to become blood donors,” said Ed Yee, Regional Director, Donor and Clinic Services. “If you’ve made an appointment, please honour it. If you haven’t made one, please book one today.” With a patient somewhere in Canada needing blood every minute of every day, a constant supply of new blood donations is required. Most often, it takes more than one donor’s unit of blood to save a patient’s life. A single car accident victim may require 50 units of blood and blood products to survive injuries. Increased traffic usually means more car accidents on roadways. Every donor who books and keeps an appointment this summer will provide the additional supply of blood products needed for hospital patients. More reasons why it’s important to book and keep your blood donation appointment this summer: • Only 60 per cent of blood donors honour their appointments. • According to Transport Canada,

more people have died on Canada’s roads in the last 50 years than the number of Canadians killed in both world wars. • Road traffic injuries are the second leading cause of death for young people aged five to 25. • According to the Canada Safety Council website, almost half of all road fatalities and about 40 per cent of serious injuries occur on undivided rural roads. To book an appointment today or for more information, visit blood.ca or call 1-888-2DONATE (1-888-236-6283). Canadian Blood Services is a national, not-for-profit charitable organization that manages the supply of blood and blood products in all provinces and territories outside of Quebec. Canadian Blood Services also oversees the OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network, and provides national leadership for organ and tissue donation and transplantation. Canadian Blood Services operates 42 permanent collection sites and more than 20,000 donor clinics annually. The provincial and territorial Ministries of Health provide operational funding to Canadian Blood Services. The federal government, through Health Canada, is responsible for regulating the blood system.

Comox cadet promoted Comox Army Cadet Master Warrant Officer (MWO) Rachel Lafitte has earned one of the six positions as Group Sargeant Major (GSM) at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre (VACSTC). Lafitte is a member of 1726 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps in Comox. During the summer, more than 1,100 Army, Air, and Sea Cadets from Western Canada will spend up to six weeks in the Vernon training centre, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills

and forming friendships. This summer, 119 staff cadets have been hired to assist with the training. Of these, six have earned the position of GSM at VACSTC. Each of them has excelled as a course cadet in previous years and has demonstrated a strong leadership ability to be recommended for the position. Lafitte said, “I have stronger people skills and am able to organize people better because of what I learned in cadets.” Lafitte plans to attend university, and then on to a career in the military medical field.

When history is fun for youth

Pennies helping riders The Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society is still collecting (and rolling) pennies. After four weeks of the drive, the society was $1,651.52 closer towards the goal of $2 million. All with pennies!? Thank you to the people who are donating silver. The CVTRS is also busy devising fundraising ideas and researching foundations that have helped in the past, and building a capital campaign. This society has put in 26 years of hard work offering a service that is not only an enjoyable exercise but also learning to be safe around horses, getting to know them, getting out of a wheelchair (looking down instead of up), leaving a walker behind, conquering fears, building selfesteem and confidence.

Dragonflies fastest at two dragon boat races last month attire and a decorated ‘saloon’ tent at Sproat Lake on June 17, the women’s team paddled two 300-metre races with times of 1:31.56

THE DRAGON RIDERS are the Comox Valley’s first competitive youth dragon boat team.

Dragon Riders first youth team The newest dragon boat team in the area is making sport history as the Comox Valley’s first competitive youth team. Having chosen the name Dragon Riders, the team is comprised of 19 youths aged 13 to 17. Formed through an initiative of the Prevailing Wins dragon boat team, the youth team has been practising weekly since May under the careful guidance of certified tiller Norm Flower, coaches Bill Jay and Peter Williams, drummer Karen Pedersen, as well as a rotation of four Prevailing Wins team members — all of whom volunteer their time and experience. “Dragon Riders as a team has come so far, so fast,” remarked team captain Leon Van Noorden “that we have entered them in the 2012 Comox Nautical Days dragon boat races.” Jay added, “This youth team is awesome. They have the technique, the skill, the stamina and confident enthusiasm to excel in competition.” With financial and volunteer support from Prevailing Wins, the Dragon Riders are one of only three youth dragon boat competitive teams on Vancouver Island. Boosted by a generous grant and volunteer time from Investors Group’s Kirk Campbell, Mandy Baker and Rob Backhouse, the team has been able to purchase

paddles and boat rentals, essential components of their training. “At Investors Group, we believe in supporting youth and families in equal opportunities to participate in organized sport,” said spokesperson Kirk Campbell. As part of their corporate strategy, Investors Group not only funds Dragon Riders, but they also contribute significant volunteer time to the team as well, assisting in practices. Mandy Baker commented, “This is the kind of sport we heartily endorse — it brings together youth of different ages, genders, and abilities — and enhances values such as teamwork, leadership, commitment, accountability, and camaraderie.” Backhouse noted, “Dragon Riders gives us the opportunity to be a part of something huge — this is a youth group that is moving forward with excellence!” With openings still available, Comox Valley teens wishing to join the Dragon Riders team are encouraged to contact Leon Van Noorden at pwyouth@ hotmail.com or phone 250-339-5772 to obtain the necessary waiver and safety documents. — Prevailing Wins Dragon Boat Team

COMOX VALLEY RECORD â&#x20AC;˘ Friday, July 13, 2012

SEWER DEVELOPMENT COST CHARGES INCREASING IN COURTENAY AND COMOX Development cost charges (DCCs) are funds collected from land developers, including homeowners applying for building permit or subdivision, by local governments to offset part of the infrastructure expenditures incurred to serve new development. The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is recommending an increase to sewer DCCs in the City of Courtenay and the Town of Comox. This increase will partially fund upgrades to the sewer system such as: increased pumping capacity, re-routing of force mains, increased treatment capacity and increased bio-solids removal and processing capacity. DCCs are recommended to increase from the current charge of $2,470 to $5,980 for a single family lot. 6LPLODULQFUHDVHVDUHDOVRUHFRPPHQGHGIRURWKHUGHYHORSPHQWFDWHJRULHV$QLQFUHDVHLQ'&&VDOVRWUDQVODWHVLQWRDQHTXLYDOHQWLQFUHDVHLQFDSLWDOLPSURYHPHQW FRVWFKDUJHV &,&&V &,&&¡VDUHFKDUJHVWRSURSHUW\RZQHUVZKRVHSURSHUW\LVEURXJKWLQWRPXQLFLSDOERXQGDULHV 2QHRIWKHJXLGLQJSULQFLSOHVLQGHWHUPLQLQJGHYHORSPHQWFRVWFKDUJHVLVWKDWWKHORFDOJRYHUQPHQWSURYLGHVDGHTXDWHRSSRUWXQLW\IRUPHDQLQJIXODQG informed input from all stakeholders. Recently, the CVRD publicized this information in the local papers and on the CVRD website. The CVRD also hosted a sewer DCC presentation in conjunction with Building Links magazine in order to target the Comox Valley development community. The following questions and answers listed below summarize the discussions at this meeting. The following information applies only to the CVRD sewer DCC, not to to any of the DCCs established by the City of Courtenay or the Town of Comox for their specific sewer collection services. The CVRD is extending the opportunity to provide feedback onWKHUHFRPPHQGHGLQFUHDVHXQWLO$XJXVW3OHDVHHPDLO.DUHQ*DUUHWW&95'¡VSURSHUW\ services branch assistant, at kgarrett@comoxvalleyrd.ca. Q1. Will DCCs be reduced once all projects on the list have been completed? A1. DCC amounts are calculated based on a required project list and a population projection over a certain time period (usually 10 years). It is possible that in the future, once the current list of projects is complete that the future project list will be reduced and that lower capital costs will be required. This could result in lower future DCCs. However, the opposite is also true in that future project costs could be higher which would likely result in increased future DCCs.

Q11. If the growth projections used are not realistic will the DCC amount be too high? A11. If either the growth projections or the capital project list costs used are not accurate the DCCs could be in error. However with more frequent reviews of DCCs (as discussed in Q12 above) this is not likely to be an issue. For example, if during the next two year review it is discovered that growth within the community is not as high as projected then it is also likely that some projects can be deferred from the project list. In the end this will likely result in a similar DCC amount.

Q2. How are DCC rates for commercial users calculated? A2. DCC rates for commercial users are established in the same way as for other development categories. An equivalent population factor is calculated for commercial properties based on projected growth over the next 10 years. This population factor is then multiplied by the DCC amount per equivalent population density. However one of the differences for commercial DCCs is that they are charged per square metre of building area, not on a per unit basis.

Q12. Can the increase be phased in over multiple years? A12. It is possible to calculate the new DCC amounts based on a phased in approach. However this would create a higher DCC amount (than currently recommended) at the end of the phasing period to make up for the lost revenue during phasing. In addition, it is not fair to allow properties connecting to the service to pay a lower amount during phasing when the real cost of connecting is known.

Q3. Are the new rates for replacement or expansion? A3. The new DCC rates can be for projects that provide a combination of replacement and/or expansion. Each project on the capital project list is reviewed and allocated GHSHQGLQJRQLWVEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WWRQHZDQGH[LVWLQJXVHUV6RPHUHSODFHPHQWSURMHFWVEHQHĂ&#x20AC;W new users as they allow an increase in the amount of wastewater treated. If a UHSODFHPHQWSURMHFWRQO\EHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVH[LVWLQJXVHUVWKHQLWGRHVQRWDWWUDFW'&&VDQG is not included in DCC calculations. Q4. How many previous upgrades have there been to the treatment plant in the past 30 years and what is the approximate value of these upgrades? A4. There have been several major capacity upgrade projects at the treatment plant in the past totalling approximately $12 million dollars. Q5. Are existing users contributing to new infrastructure, or is it just development that contributes? A5. When a DCC project list is updated each project is analyzed to determine its EHQHĂ&#x20AC;WWRH[LVWLQJXVHUVYHUVXVLWVEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WWRQHZGHYHORSPHQW2QO\WKHFRVWRI projects allocated to new development is included in the DCC calculations. In this way H[LVWLQJXVHUVSD\IRUWKHSRUWLRQRISURMHFWVRQWKH'&&OLVWWKDWEHQHĂ&#x20AC;WVH[LVWLQJXVHUV In addition, many projects on the DCC list are completed before the required DCCs are collected. In these cases funds are borrowed for the project and the debt charges associated with the borrowing are paid for by existing system users.

Q13. Are user rates also projected to increase? A13. Yes, the 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2016 sewerage service budget recently adopted by the CVRD board shows large increases in user rates in order to cover future debt costs for the sewerage service. Q14 Are new users are subsidizing everyone? A14. New users are not subsidizing anyone. They are paying for their share of the required works to facilitate growth within the community. Q15. What is the current DCC account balance? A15. The current DCC account balance is $2,602,315 (Feb 2012) Q16. How does the Comox Valley sewer DCC compare to other communities? A16. The following table compares the proposed Comox Valley sewer DCC to other communities.

Magical Merlins among Mother Nature’s fast flyers One of my favourite members of the falcon family is the “magical Merlin.” Aerodynamically designed for speed, the Merlin is second only to the peregrine falcon, cruising at speeds in excess of 70 kilometres per hour. Also known as the “pigeon hawk,” this name not only implies their partiality to dining on pigeons, but also reflects the similarity in the air to the flight pattern of a pigeon with rapid wingbeats and lengthy swoops. In olden times, Merlins were popular falconry birds particularly suited to ladies of nobility as they were easy for them to manage. In British Columbia, Merlins are migratory birds coming in the late spring and summer. They prefer coniferous forests but are also found by lakes and ponds and along the shorelines. They are also becoming more common in urban areas, as they have adapted to backyard feeders that provide them with easy pickings. Comparable in size to the stellar jay, the male Merlin has a slaty-blue/gray cap and wings, and a rufouscoloured breast with dark streaks. Females are mainly dark brown. In keeping with the falcon family, Merlins have sleek muscular bodies with pointed wings and long barred tails. Another unique feature shared by falcons is their specially adapted nostrils, which are equipped with pealike baffles that reduce the impact of air rushing into the nasal cavity during high-speed flight. These little falcons are extremely active and vocal, especially during the nesting season, emitting a piercing kee-kee-kee as they fiercely defend their territory. Merlins spend little time perching as they capture their prey mid air coming to perch to devour their food.

mals are now giving birth to their pups and already we have admitted “kidnapped” babies. Please remember that mother seals will beach their pups to go off hunting, returning on the high tide. Do not pick up pups! If in any doubt, call MARS’ emergency line at 1-800-304-9968 for advice before intervening. Keep dogs and people away from the pups. ••• A huge thank you to all the teachers and students who supported MARS’ educational programs over the last school year.

MARS MOMENT

SANDY

FAIRFIELD Once prey is spotted, the Merlin will relentlessly chase the prey, literally knocking it out of the sky with formidable talons; due to their power and speed they are able to attack a bird the same size as themselves. Although birds are their main food source they will also dine on large dragonflies, insects and moths and the occasional rodent. Unlike most raptors, Merlins do not mate for life nor do they build their own nests, preferring to reuse old crow

or raven nests and will also use cavities in trees or cliffs. Although Merlins produce two to five eggs, usually only two will survive to adulthood. Survival is often cut short by predation from crows and ravens and also eagles as they often choose nests that are in close proximity to eagles’ nests. The choice of nest for one Merlin family in Campbell River proved to be dangerous for the chicks as the eagles did attempt to snatch an easy meal and the chicks were found under the tree. A similar situation also happened in Courtenay, ending up with three chicks coming to MARS.

It has been several years since MARS rescued. The Merlins, together with the osprey that was attacked in April, have been transferred to O.W.L. in Ladner where they have foster parents and large flight pens to condition the birds for their hopeful return and release in the Comox Valley.

Big Time Out grew to three days Five years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: This year the Big Time Out in Cumberland had become three days of music on one stage with headliners Michael Franti & Spearhead, Xavier Rudd, Sarah Harmer, Corb Lund, Sly and Robbie with Horace Andy (the voice of Massive Attack), Taxi and Cherine Anderson plus many others. Ten years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: One of B.C.’s largest hockey camps was posed to move into the Comox Valley next year, pending approval from the City’s Sports Commission. The Can-Am Junior Prep Camp and Sunshine Coast Hockey School, soon to be renamed as “West Coast Hockey Camps,” begins their program next week in Powell River, but they hope to relocate to the Valley by 2003. Fifteen years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: A frightening confrontation early Wednesday will not stop Denman Island residents from conducting peaceful anti-logging protests. Logging contractor Dustin Prowse reportedly drove his crew-cab pickup through a group of nine protesters at about 4:55 a.m., slowing pushing them about 100 feet down the road. Seventeenyear-old Milora Spong was treated for shock. Other than being

The Christmas donations, which kept the food bank going, were gone. The last 137 bags of food were given out Friday. “We’ll take anything,” says volunteer Norris Webster. “It doesn’t matter what it is; we don’t refuse anything.” Twenty-five years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record:

“Young drivers account for approximately half of fatally injured drinking drivers in North America,” Dr. Grace Doherty wrote in a recent letter to highways minister Cliff Michael. As chairman of the Comox Valley traf-

Maslow’s heirarchy sheds light on consumer decisions It does not matter who you are or what product or service you are offering, you need to have some understanding as to why people make buying decisions. While much has been written and many theories have been put forward the bottom line is that you need to be able to satisfy a need. This will involve dealing with some basic psychology and for this I will turn to the work of Abraham Maslow. He is considered the founder of humanistic psychology which is based on the study of people who are mental-

ly healthy rather than those who are ill. In his motivational theory he stated that people in general are constantly in the state of wanting. They are in a constant struggle to fulfil needs no matter how many they have already satisfied. He classified these needs into five levels that he referred to as ‘the hierarchy of human needs.’ If you can relate your product or service to satisfying these basic needs you will be on your way to success. In the first level the needs are physiological. This is basic survival

IT’S YOUR BUSINESS

JOE

SMITH such as food, shelter, water and clothing. The second level is comprised of the needs surrounding safety and security: health and well-being, employment, financial and any other safety net that would relate to personal and family security. In moving up to the third level which is focused on love and belonging this means

that people are looking for acceptance, affection and friendship. The fourth level is one of the most intriguing as it deals with esteem. The needs that are involved here focus on recognition, respect, prestige, importance, achievement and independence. In other words a lot of egoboosting products and services. Maslow’s highest level is the need for self-actualization. This is where people fulfil their need to be the best at who they are and what they do: the best athlete, the best mom or dad, the best employee, the best on the block and so on. In looking at these various levels of needs

we can break them down into two categories, functional and emotional. In functional we see the many products and services that can be measured in a tangible way. The no-touch car tire cleaner or the bathroom spray that does all the work for you. It is also the services that will help make your personal or business life easier. The other category that needs consideration in a marketing and communications plan is the emotional component. Does your product or service make someone feel good, important or attractive?

Atlas assists relief organization Atlas Manufacturing builds drilling equipment for the water, oil and gas, and construction industries. Ninety per cent of the company’s equipment is exported. The Merville company refurbished and outfitted a water well drilling rig with equipment for Global Aid Network (Gain), a non-profit organization based in Langley. On June 18, the rig left the yard and was driven to Halifax, N.S. It was loaded on a ship June 28 and is on its way to Contonou, Benin, West Africa. Gain provides emergency relief and humanitarian aid worldwide through its Water for Life initiative. It has drilled 500 deep-capped water wells in Togo, Benin, Tanzania and Southern Sudan. Each well provides disease-free water to an average of 1,000 villagers. This rig is the latest addition to their fleet of three. Atlas helped with a reduced price on the rig but donations Gain

receives from the public funds 100 per cent of their work. This particular rig was purchased

by a single donor. More information on Gain is at www.globalaid.net/about/water.

However, if you do have a good handle on who your customers are and can provide a product or service that appeals to both their emotional and functional side, and addresses some of their needs, then they will be more inclined to open up their wallets or budget.

Good music good for business Vancouver Island MusicFest advanced last weekend on two important and related fronts. Nothing against previous lineups and the many brilliant performers who have annually graced the six VIMF stages, but the 2012 festival was an artistic triumph. Legends such as Emmylou Harris and k.d. lang are also huge magnets for fans. Lesser drawing cards such as Buffy SainteMarie, Richard Thompson and Laurie Anderson nonetheless have devoted fan bases, and their presence gives MusicFest an artistic presence that cannot be underestimated. Music director Doug Cox — himself a touring musician — typically fleshed out the roster with a deep and rich international lineup that ensured music lovers would be satisfied, if not amazed, even when they weren’t listening to a headliner. MusicFest’s commercial success this year was even more remarkable. Although the festival previously sold out for individual days, every last 2012 ticket was purchased for all three days. Cox even had the unenviable task of telling some performers there were no tickets left for their spouses. In a difficult economic climate, selling out is an astounding feat. More than 60 per cent of ticket buyers were from outside the Comox Valley this year, and a significant portion were from outside B.C. Word is spreading among performers and fans about the little festival efficiently run by friendly people in our gorgeous part of the world. Another thing that cannot be underestimated is the economic spinoffs this generates. The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce knew for weeks that all local hotels and B&Bs were fully booked for the weekend, notes president and CEO Dianne Hawkins. Besides accommodation, visitors buy meals and spend money in various ways on and off the site. The Comox Valley Youth Music Centre, Filberg Festival, Big Time Out and other artistic draws also contribute to the local economy. The arts are good for business. editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Record Question of the Week This week: Sixty-six per cent of respondents said Comox Valley School District trustees were right to cut costs so they could submit a balanced budget. Next week: Are there too many restrictions at the cemetery in Courtenay? Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord.com and vote in the Poll. We are so pleased that Shawn and Emily Wood enjoyed her dying wish of a beautiful wedding day. We pray her health allows her to rally.

It is truly unfortunate that the City of Courtenay and Maple Pool Campground owners seem unable to keep their disagreement out of a courtroom.

Taxpayers to pay for cleanup? Dear editor, With little fanfare or media coverage, the BC Ministry of Environment recently released the Remedial Options Feasibility Report for the Union Bay Waste Coal Pile Site in Union Bay. This “cleanup plan,” years in the making, has the desired outcome of “improvement over time” of the conditions at the Waste Coal Pile Site. The Waste Coal Pile Site is the result of coal processing/shipping along the shores of Union Bay from 1888 to 1960, and covers an area of approximately 13 hectares and contains around one million cubic metres of material. Residents of the Comox Valley might find it surprising that the Waste Coal Pile Site in Union Bay, is also listed as one of the top 13 priority contaminated

The estimated reject rock pile at the Raven Mine would be over 10 times larger than the Union Bay site, and the potential costs of cleaning up the Raven Mine site would be staggering.

John Snyder sites on Crown land in British Columbia. While the report discusses various remediation alternatives, the selected remedy appears to be a “cover-only” approach using a bituminous geomembrane (BGM) and vegetative cover. The

price tag for this remedy is an estimated $17 million. This Union Bay Waste Coal Pile cleanup saga should serve as a cautionary tale for those concerned about the proposed Raven Coal Mine near Fanny Bay. The estimated reject rock pile at the Raven Mine would be over 10 times larger than the Union Bay site, and the potential costs of cleaning up the Raven Mine site would be staggering. While it’s still not clear who will pick up the tab for the $17-million cleanup bill at Union Bay, the lessons learned from the Mount Washington mine cleanup would indicate the taxpayers of British Columbia might be on the hook once again. John Snyder, Fanny Bay

Cemetery rules indeed impersonal Dear editor, I was very happy when my mum showed me the article “Local cemetery called ‘dehumanizing’” in the Comox Valley Record on July, 4 2012. My dad died when I was 12, which was almost three years ago now and his ashes are buried at the Courtenay civic cemetery. I have often wanted to leave special gifts and flowers for my dad that have a special meaning to me and to him. I have not been able to do this because of the rules that have been imposed. When my mom went to the city hall to ask why we were not allowed to leave silk flowers and other meaningful items on the plots, she was told that the rules have been in place since 1952 and in the opinion of the person she spoke to some of the silk flowers that were left were tacky. However, mom and I have noticed that items can be left at certain plots as long as it is a

Canadian flag. Recently a new bylaw has been added to not allow dogs from being able to go into the cemetery. When I saw the sign that said no dogs were allowed I was again very sad, as I like to walk to the cemetery to see my dad alone and feel safer when I can take my dog with me. I also think my dog likes to visit my dad, too, as they were very close as well. I understand why some rules have to be in place, but I absolutely agree with Mr. and Mrs.

Hargrave when they say the rules at the cemetery feel dehumanized and impersonal. I feel very sad when we have to take a trip to the cemetery to take away the flowers that we gave my dad in the fall because someone made a decision that they will be unsightly and a health and safety risk by May. I think a citizen committee would be a great idea or maybe if enough of us write letters then these rules will be changed. Tamsyn Steven, Comox Valley

OPINION

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Comox paving botched Dear editor, Whoever at the Town of Comox is responsible for co-ordinating the paving of Dogwood Avenue south of Pritchard Road did not give the project very much thought. They routed the truck fleet that was delivering the blacktop down Noel Avenue between Anderton and Pritchard roads. This was through a playground, down a street that is restricted for truck traffic, and past the fire station, which, if responding to a fire, would have been impeded by the trucks. I complained to the RCMP, but they were too busy to respond. I called the Town of Comox, and voiced my displeasure about the trucks travelling through a restricted street. They responded by asking the truckers if they were speeding through the playground. You can rest assured that these truckers were not reacting to the reduced speed required by the playground. They likely thought that school is out, and the speed restriction was not in effect. Instead of creating a situation where the residents were getting irritated with the traffic, and tempers were frayed, they could have very easily routed this traffic down Robb Avenue, where school is out, and the 30 km/h speed is not in effect, the traffic restrictions on Noel Avenue would have been adhered to, and the possibility of impeding the fire department would have been non-existent.

Bravo, MusicFest Dear editor, I just read your Mark Allanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interview with Laurie Anderson (Record, June 29), which was an excellent supplement to the inspiring performance she gave on Sunday night at the Vancouver Island Music Festival. Well done, Mark Allan, Comox Valley Record, Vancouver Island Music Festival, and especially Doug Cox for the courage to engage such a provocative and imaginative artist as Laurie Anderson. I left the Island inspired.... Harvey Chometsky, Powell River

Shut up, behave Dear editor, When I first moved to the Island and in particular the Valley, it quickly dawned on me that this place wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly a hot spot for contemporary music lovers. Clearly the local population â&#x20AC;&#x201D; young or old â&#x20AC;&#x201D; didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly lose itself within the pages of the music weeklies. I have spent many an hour convincing my neighbours that music has actually moved on from Woodstock, Pink Floyd made other albums beside The Wall and in England they had a brief music phenomena in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s called punk that helped stir things up and make things interesting again. Bizarre, but true. Regardless, I have always accepted my lot and realize Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confined to seeking out new bands through the press/Internet and not the local radio stations. However, for someone to claim (as they did in your paper) that the recent MusicFest was probably the best in the world, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to step in and say on behalf of all the rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n rollers of the world â&#x20AC;&#x201D; shut up and behave yourself.

COMOX VALLEY RECORD â&#x20AC;˘ Friday, July 13, 2012

Dear editor, Miloon Kothari, the United Nations special rapporteur on adequate housing, was recently back in this country and noted that nothing had been done since his last visit. Canadian law doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize adequate housing as an enforceable right or a policy commitment by government. Canada is also one of a few countries in the world that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a national housing strategy. While there may be at least 150,000 Canadians living on the streets, the country doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an official definition of homelessness. These disturbing points are raised by Mr. Kothari in a new report that is the focus

Logging unsightly Dear editor, As a Union Bay resident, I am supportive of KIPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long-range development plans for the community (homes, golf course, marina, etc.). If their plan ever materializes is, perhaps, something else. However, I would like to express my dissatisfaction with KIPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incomplete clearing of a section of their property along our scenic coastal highway. For whatever reason, KIP elected to cut down a large number of beautiful trees and then leave large piles of unsightly brush, etc. on the property. It would be a positive step forward if they would complete the clearing of this property, regardless of the progress, or lack thereof, on the rest of their project. Heather Mueller, Union Bay

of world attention this week. On Monday, Kothariâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report on Canada was tabled at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, according to the Toronto-based Wellesley Institute. Kothari travelled across Canada from October 9 to 22, 2007. His visit focused on four areas: homelessness; women and their right to adequate housing; aboriginal populations; adequate housing and the possible impact of the 2010 Olympic Games on the right to adequate housing in Vancouver. Kothari walked through Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impoverished Downtown Eastside in the early morning of Oct. 16, 2007, and he told the Georgia Straight at that time that what he saw and heard was very disturbing. In a report to the

taxpayers more than $50,000 per year to support each homeless resident in British Columbia and $4.5 to $6 billion annually for an estimated 150,000 homeless in Canada,â&#x20AC;? Kothari wrote. The UN rapporteur expressed concern over reports that homeless people are getting ticketed and their possessions seized in the leadup to the 2010 Olympics. These issues also apply to issues of homelessness and poverty in Vancouver Island North. When do you think that you could take some time to address this issue, Mr. Duncan? We have had a council that made an effort to do so, but they got voted out. Marketdriven housing canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the only solution to housing. Ray Garford, Comox Valley

Human Rights Council, Kothari noted that adequate housing as a right is not found in the Constitution Act of 1982, including the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms; in provincial or federal human-rights legislation; in national, provincial, or territorial housing legislation; or in federal-provincial agreements. As such, the right to adequate housing as described in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights cannot be claimed on its own. Kothari noted that experts have described Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding strategy to housing as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fraying patchworkâ&#x20AC;? in the absence of a national housing strategy. He points to the high cost of failing to take action on homelessness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For instance, it is estimated that it costs

What do you do while waiting for pedestrians to cross As a pedestrian in Vancouver, I am feeling increasingly at risk, says a visitor to the DriveSmartBC website. Drivers want to manoeuvre behind pedestrians as soon as they can. What is the law about proceeding when the pedestrian is still on the street?

This question has two answers, depending if the pedestrian is at an intersection with or without operational traffic lights. If the scenario takes place at an intersection with traffic lights, a driver must yield to pedestrians crossing lawfully and then may proceed as soon as it is

safe to do so. Drivers must always exercise due care to avoid colliding with a pedestrian on the highway. In this situation, it would be wise for the driver to consider how closely they would appreciate vehicles to pass by them if the positions were reversed.

SCHEWE

If this takes place at an intersection with no traffic lights or where the traffic lights are not in operation, a driver must not travel on the half of the highway occupied by the pedestrian or where the pedestrian is approaching so closely from the other half of the highway that the pedestrian

Vampires? There’s an herb for that

Windsor Plywood’s

Herbs. The very plants that started us down the path to what our garden has become today. My wish to put in a circular herb garden beside John’s veggies turned him into an honest-to-goodness plantaholic. Grass began to disappear and new gardens beds started springing up all over. I love herbs. So versatile. They are great in the kitchen; indispensable in the medicine cabinets of centuries past; organic for pest control. If you are worried about witches, vampires, werewolves and bad spirits, there are herbs to help you deal with those, too. What is a herb? Botanically speaking, “herb” actually refers to any plant with non-woody stems. Pretty broad category. Nowadays, the term generally refers to any plant which we would use in whole or in part to flavour our cooking, medicate ourselves or perfume our homes. In the kitchen is probably where most people connect with herbs. Developing a feel for combining various herbs with which to flavour meat, soups, stews, etc. during cooking is a great way to enhance your dining experience — not to mention reduce the amount of salt in your diet. Guaranteed you will not miss it. You just have to keep a couple of points in mind.

Dried herbs are added at the beginning of the cooking; fresh are added very near the end. How much to use? The ratio is always three to one. If you do not have fresh on hand, substitute dried and divide the amount needed by three. Cooking herbs such as oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, chives, marjoram and savory are very easy to grow. Their only requirement is fast-draining soil and a minimum of six hours of sun. They are drought tolerant and virtually pest- and disease-free. No garden? No problem. Herbs can be grown in containers on a balcony or on a windowsill. Early summer is the optimum time to harvest herbs for your kitchen. Harvest them before they go into flower. Give them a quick rinse and blot the excess water with a clean dish towel. You can then either lay the stems out on a cake rack out of direct sun or tie a few stems together with a small elastic band and hang the bunches to dry — again out of direct sun. Once dry, gently remove the leaves from the stems and store your bounty in a sealed container or bag in a cool, dark place. Basil is best frozen, not dried. Wash your harvested stems of basil and pat dry. Remove leaves from the stems and place in a small freezer bag.

DUCHESS OF DIRT

LESLIE COX Gather up the top of the bag between thumb and forefinger and blow air into the bag. Quickly tie the bag securely and place in the freezer. To use, remove what leaves you need and immediately re-seal the bag and return to the freezer. Here’s a family favourite recipe for Grandma’s Crusty

Cold Chicken — great for those summertime picnics. Combine one and a half cups of fine breadcrumbs, one teaspoon each of dried thyme, dried marjoram, dried rosemary, black pepper and one tablespoon paprika in a clean plastic bag. Set aside. Beat three eggs and three tablespoons of cold water in a shallow dish. Set aside. Divide one cup margarine between two large, shallow ovenproof dishes. Place dishes in a 350F oven for five minutes, or until

margarine is melted. Remove from oven. Remove skin from 12 chicken drumsticks and 12 thighs. Roll each piece in egg, then in crumb mixture. Place in pans in a single layer, turn to coat with melted margarine. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn pieces, continue baking for another 30 minutes, or until chicken is done. Serves 12 to 16 people.

DO-IT-YOURSELFs Tip

CABINET PLYWOOD It is important to select the right kind of plywood when building new cabinets. If you intend to use a light stain finish, select a plywood with uniform grain pattern and coloration. If only one side of the panel will be seen once the project is completed, Good One Side grade is specified for economy.

Ceramics discovery changed Fox’s life Paula Wild Record Arts

At age 13, Mary Fox began potting purely by chance. Since then, she’s exhibited internationally, given many workshops and created her own studio/ gallery in Ladysmith. As featured guest artist at the Filberg Festival, she’ll display a wide range of functional and decorative work, some made especially for the four-day event on the BC Day long weekend. “I was introduced to the craft of pottery while attending junior high in Victoria,” says Fox. “I needed to take two electives but everything I was interested in was full. The counsellor said there was room in ceramics and I said, ‘What’s that?’ I was pretty intimidated as I don’t draw well and had not been exposed to any art before.” Little did she know that class would ignite a passion that burns brightly to this day. By the end of Grade 8, Fox had finished the Grade 10 ceramics class. The teacher let her take the class again and also provided access to the ceramics room during lunch hour and after school. With help from her dad, Fox built her own pottery wheel and by Grade 11 was teaching night classes. At age 17, she moved out on her own, supporting herself by making pottery. “I’ve never done anything else

to earn a living,” she says. “I love getting up and going into my studio every day. And I never get bored unless I’m invoicing.” In the beginning, Fox worked as a production potter, creating useful and attractive pieces people could use to eat or cook with. In fact, it took her a decade or so to discover the challenges and rewards of decorative pottery and to develop her true artistic abilities. “I love the creative aspect of decorative pieces,” Fox says. “I’m probably most well-known for my chalices. They are the most difficult to make — some go down to the size of a nickel and then have to balance in the kiln until I put them on a clay base. I’ve only made 25 in the last 10 years so they’re my most collectible item. “I’m also quite well-known for creating my own glazes, specifically lithium and copper,” she adds. “No one else works with just those two elements. I’m largely self-taught so there was no one around to say, ‘You can’t do that.’ I’ve spent a lot of time exploring.” Fox’s work has been exhibited in Japan, Australia and Italy. “Thousands of potters apply for these shows but only a few get in,” she explains. “It’s fun but a lot of work also. After a while I realized I’d rather be at home in my studio.” So she rebuilt her house to include a spacious gallery. “Now instead of taking my work

POTTER MARY FOX of Ladysmith will be the featured guest artist at the Filberg Festival in Comox from Aug. 3 to 6, showing examples of her work such as the vase at left. to other countries, people from all over the world come to my place to see my work,” she says. “And with the studio behind the gallery, people can experience the whole process. Folks often stop by just to see what’s going on.” Fox also offers workshops through potters’ guilds, which focus on everything from handson work to exploring the creative process and developing an individual style. “I always tell beginning potters to spend their money on a big mixer before buying a car,” Fox says. “In the long run, they’ll thank me for saving the wear and tear on their hands.” Fox had never been to the Comox Valley before and rarely participates in any festivals anymore. But she had heard so many great things about the Fil-

berg Festival and, after a drive up Island to check out the site, accepted the invitation as guest artist. And she’s creating some innovative pieces for the show. “I decided on an ocean theme so am making cascading tidal pools based on my interpretation of local sandstone formations,” she says. “They’re all hand-built and probably take 30 to 40 hours to create. The tricky part is to hollow them out and get them to dry without cracking.” Fox’s display will include a wide range of stoneware and porcelain in decorative and functional designs, as well as some of her unique glazes. “Pursuit of beauty is a constant in my life,” she says. “I love the challenge of creating contemporary vessels based on classical

shapes. When you are working with pure form the tiniest fraction of an inch at any spot will make the difference between just a vase and a vase full of life.” For a preview of Fox’s work, visit www.maryfoxpottery.ca. The Filberg Festival takes place on the nine-acre waterfront Filberg estate from Aug. 3 to 6. Now in its 30th year, the festival features more than 120 of Canada’s finest artisans, fabulous food and lively entertainment for children and adults. Tickets are available online at www.filbergfestival.com/buytickets-online or in person at the Filberg Heritage Lodge gift shop, Arizona Gifts in the Comox Centre Mall, the Vancouver Island Visitor Centre, Thrifty Foods Vancouver Island locations and at the gate.

awarded Best Supporting Actress for her outstanding performance as Catherine. Graphic designer Janet Walker won the award for Best Poster, Non Professional. Her powerful and evocative design was for CLT’s September 2011 production of Homechild by Kathryn Shaw. Walker’s winning poster was selected from entries designed for any community play performed in B.C. over the past year. Adjudicator Jeff Hysop was very impressed by the Cour-

tenay Little Theatre production. After shaking the hand of each of the five actors, he spoke of their “five singular energies.” Hyslop commented that their choice of play was now a Canadian classic and “should be right up there with Anne of Green Gables.” He particularly complimented CLT for the quality of their costumes, hairstyles, lighting, sound, and props, emphasizing the contribution of the technical team to this fine production. The winner of Best

Production this year was Vernon’s Powerhouse Theatre with the modern thriller The Woman in Black by Stephen Mallatratt. Further details are available on the Courtenay Little Theatre website at www.courtenaylittletheatre.com and at www.theatrebc. com. — Courtenay Little Theatre

She’s been lauded as one of 50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World, Canada’s Queen of Green and one of the 150 people who have changed British Columbia’s history. Internationally recognized environmental activist Tzeporah Berman will be among 11 distinguished authors at this year’s Denman Island Readers and Writers Festival from July 19 to 22. The author of a memoir, This Crazy Time, Berman will participate in a Friday evening and Sunday afternoon panel sharing insights into her 20 years helping shape the tactics and concerns of modern environmentalism. From her early days in the Clayoquot Sound logging protests, through campaigns to save the Great Bear Rainforest and the boreal forest, into her current work as a climate change and tar sands activist, Tzeporah has shown herself both a brilliant organizer and a lightning rod for those who disagree with her brand of ‘radical pragmatism.’ This year’s festival will also feature toptier Canadian novelists Audrey Thomas (Coming Down From Wa), Timothy Taylor (Stanley Park) and Steven Galloway (The Cellist of Sarajevo). Theatre artist and revolutionary memoirist Carmen Aguirre (Something Fierce) and acclaimed Jamaican poet and short fiction writer Lorna Goodison (By Love Possessed) will add an international perspective. Grant Lawrence of CBC Radio fame will read from Adventures in Solitude, his memoir of summers in the coastal wilderness of Desolation Sound.

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Friday, July 13, 2012

Just take this art – and wear it Are you ready for the most entertaining, intriguing and outrageous fashion show of the year? Comox Valley Art Gallery’s fourth annual Wearable Art Show is coming up July 19 to 21 this year with a whole new flair! With three jam-packed performances taking place each night, there’s a show night for everyone at this annual sellout fundraising event. Wearable Art is original, theatrical, out-of-the-box adornments for the human body. Artists, designers and fashion gurus alike have created artistic costumes out of some of the most outrageous materials you can imagine — metal, wood, candy, pop cans, photographs, newspapers, cellophane, rocks, glass, and even bagpipes this year! Extravagant hairstyles, makeup, shoes and accessories are styled to complete every look. The Wearable Art Show is an “art couture fashion show” and performance of creative explorations of clothing and design. In this show, artist/performer teams have created a wearable masterpiece, which will be performed to two minutes of music which thematically relates to their piece. Prepare to be moved to laugh, dance, cry and “oooo!” as each performer showcases their piece through

choreography, spoken word, dance or other theatrical means. CVAG is pleased to present three performances this year, with the final night’s show (July 21) including an awards ceremony where some local celebrities will comment on each piece as well as assign the winners of the over $1,000 in sponsored awards and prizes for categories like the “Wow” Factor and Best Use of Recycled Materials. The audience each night will get a chance to choose their favourite performance as well, with the coveted Audience’s Choice Award winner being revealed at this gala. Saturday night also includes a wine and cheese reception for guests to enjoy! The doors to all shows open at 6 p.m., which allows guests a chance to browse the Lost Treasures second-hand art exhibit and bargain sale before the Wearable Art Show starts at 7 p.m. sharp. This funky, hilarious and one-of-a-kind fundraising event takes place at the Comox Valley Art Gallery, located at 580 Duncan Ave. in downtown Courtenay. The venue only seats 85 guests so make sure to get your tickets early. Tickets are only $22 for shows July 19 and 20 (member discount available) and the $32 ticket for July 21 (member discount available) show includes atten-

dance at the judge’s awards ceremony, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar. Tickets are on sale now at the CVAG gift shop next to the gallery and can be bought in person or over

the phone. For more information, visit www.comoxvalleyartgallery.com, the CVAG Facebook page, or call 250338-6211. — Comox Valley Art Gallery

Somebody else’s treasures can become art for you Whether you’re a treasure hunter, bargain browser, antiques collector or vintage enthusiast, the Comox Valley Art Gallery’s Lost Treasures secondhand art sale has booty, bounty and bargains! From July 14 to 28, the gallery brings you an opportunity like no other to find the art, décor, gifts and treasures you’ve been searching for — at ridiculously affordable, bargain prices! Proceeds of this fundraiser support more programs and exhibitions that benefit the children, youth and adults of our Comox Valley community. Donations have been arriving at the gallery since mid-June; CVAG has collected paintings, pottery, glasswork, woodwork, metalwork and tons of other funky, unique items from local artists, collectors, and home-renovators alike. The contemporary and community galleries are both filled to the brim with artworks starting from $1, bargains in the $20 to $50 range, and nothing over $500. To kickstart this twoweek “Booty, bounty and

bargains” sale, CVAG is hosting an absolutely free beach-party opening on July 13 from 7 to 9 p.m. — everyone’s welcome. Enjoy a summer cocktail and some fresh, free hors d’oeuvres while you get the very first pick of all of the items for sale. Feel free to dress like you’re ready for the beach, or even as your favourite beach-dweller and prepare to jam to some summer oldies. During Market Days/ Local Colours in downtown Courtenay on July 21, CVAG will take the Lost Treasures exhibit outdoors onto the plaza from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., so be sure to drop by as you’re browsing Fifth Street. Lost Treasures: Booty, Bounty and Bargains is open at the Gallery from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from July 14 and 28. For more information, visit www.comoxvalleyartgallery.com or call 250338-6211. CVAG is at 580 Duncan Ave. in downtown Courtenay, across from the library. — Comox Valley Art Gallery

COMOX VALLEY ART Gallery staff are hoarding the treasure they’ve amassed, but they’ll be happy to share it with you starting July 14.

Potter delicate, thoughtful The featured artist July at the Potters Place is Denman Island potter Shirley Phillips of Lilac Sun Pottery. It is always a joy to see Shirley’s work — it is fresh, different, colourful and useful. Shirley has been a potter for many years and has developed a delightful selection of textured and organic forms — leaf imprints,

w

melted beach glass, chopstick holders and pencil holders with magnets for the fridge. No matter what she makes, it is clear that her touch is delicate and thoughtful. It will be worth your while to see her newest line of work in our gallery. For more information, call 250-339-1102 or come to the corner of Fifth and Cliffe in

Stoyko returns to Abbey

BIG TIME OUT’S 2012 lineup includes Longwalkshortdock.

Big Time Out earlybird cutoff soon The seventh edition of The Big Time Out is just around the corner and fans have until this Sunday at midnight to get earlybird weekend passes. The Big Time Out is back in Cumberland’s Village Park on Aug. 18 and 19 for 2012. Organizers are adding some exciting new elements to the BTO format that will see multiple venues and street-level action as part of the weekend pass offering. Big Time Out is one of those events that transcends the more familiar definitions of ‘concert’ or ‘festival.’ Dancers hanging from silks, fire-spinning belly dancers, and massive inflatables go hand in hand with stunning new music from national and international artists.

All of this takes place in a tree-lined park nestled against an historic village filled with quaint turn-of-the century homes, funky little shops and cafés and residents who seem reasonably happy to see their little village double in size each summer. The audience is young at heart with little interest in nostalgia (although few complained about the show from veteran reggae rhythm section Sly and Robbie in 2007). They return year after year to witness the innovation and unbeatable music programming that the event has become known for. Past performers at BTO have ranged from the Sam Roberts Band, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Broken

Social Scene, Mother Mother and Metric to K’Naan, Xavier Rudd and Corb Lund. Some of the hottest electronica on the West Coast ties it all together and keeps the vibe going between the bigger acts. Performers this year include Vancouverbased alt rockers Black Mountain, alt-country trio Elliott Brood, Australia’s Aurora Jane, former Feist sideman Bahamas, Luciterra, the Funk Hunters, Humans, Longwalkshortdock, Morlove, Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers, and Kermal Evans. Local artists include Luke Blu Guthrie, Des Larsen, Pamela Tessmann and Brodie Dawson. The consistent BTO thread is high-quality

production, exciting and relevant new music, a youth-friendly energy, untamed creativity and a sense of wonder expressed year after year by performers, audience members, locals and volunteers. How does such a little village churn out such a top-tier show? Come explore the mystery Aug. 18 and 19 in historic Cumberland. To find out more about The Big Time Out, 2012 check out www.thebigtimeout. com. The early advance ticket deadline is July 15 at midnight. — The Big Time Out

The Abbey Studio in Cumberland is back with a new focus and a special concert and kirtan this Saturday. The Abbey Studio in Cumberland will present an Indian world fusion concert and kirtan with Prashant Michael John and special guest Ali Lennox on tabla. They will be joined by Cumberland voices and dance performances by Cathy Stoyko. Abbey owner/artist/ dance teacher Stoyko is happy to be back in this beautiful space, which is now primarily a dance/movement studio and her family home. Cathy teaches traditional dances from the Middle East and India, Romany ‘gypsy’ dance and fusion belly dance. Prashant’s music has a wide range of influences and instrumentation, from the music of the Indian sub-continent, and Western music through a variety of world cultures. Prashant has toured as leader with his Vancouver-based world music group Tandava, his international band Lehera and with world, jazz, and Indian musicians in Canada and India. The first part of the evening will be a concert with improvised dance performances by

PRASHANT MICHEAL JOHN will be in Cumberland for a concert/kirtan at the Abbey Studio on July 14. Stokyo. This will be followed by a kirtan, or call and response in the Indian devotional tradition, where everyone is encouraged to join in and sing. All ages are welcome and it’s pay at the door

on a sliding scale. Doors open at 7:30, concert at 8. For more about the concert/kirtan and the summer schedule, visit the Abbey Studio on Facebook or call Cathy at 250-218-0704. — Abbey Studio

Puzzling… Fun by the Numbers: Here’s how it works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

It was ridiculous.” Despite that, Robbie, the youngest cyclist at the Games, won gold. Robbie says his twice-

Here’s what these Games are all about

The Canadian Transplant Games are not focused on elite athletic performance. They’re all about the pure joy of being healthy enough to participate. It’s about meeting other transplant recipients and the camaraderie and friendship that develop from that common bond. The Games are Canada’s larg-

est organ donation awareness event. The goals of the Canadian Transplant Games are to: • show the country the life that is possible for organ recipients • encourage an active, healthy lifestyle after transplant • raise public awareness and

Along with the competition, the games feature a big family barbecue, a trip to the Calgary zoo and an outing to Banff. “It’s nice to get together with the other families,” said Sue, adding she and Robbie are also looking forward to taking in the final two days of the Calgary Stampede. As Robbie continues to grow (“When we went to Australia three years ago he was about my shoulder height. Now he’s three inches taller than me,” Sue notes of her 5’,5”, 125 pound son) he talks the talk as well as walks the walk about organ transplants. Two years ago he addressed an audience of 400 doctors in Vancouver, and he has been invited to Ottawa this September to address a Canadian Blood Services event that will honour blood, tissue and organ donors. Robbie says he enjoys these speaking engagements and feels he can capture his audience due to his first-hand experience with organ transplants. “It’s a big edge,” he said. The Comox Valley has followed Robbie for the last 14 years, and Sue said the family is extremely grateful for all the incredible support they have received.

Sprints, Bombers run tight mains Terry Guest Contributor

United Rentals sponsored a heated night of races at Saratoga Speedway on Saturday. The Sprint cars and Bomber cars both had two great main events that ended in very close finishes. In the I.M.C.A Modifieds division, #98 Pat Brown destroyed his fellow competitors, winning the dash, heat and 15-lap main event, even though he started the race a lap down on #55 John Baker. #44 Tim Openshaw finished second to Brown all night. Bike #57 Ryan Middleton also destroyed his fellow competitors, winning the dash, heat and taking the lead on the last lap of the 12-lap feature race to win every race on the night in his class. The Bombers had two new cars out on Saturday; #17 Weston Lane

and #77 Travis Stevenson were both sporting new cars. Stevenson won the B dash, with the A dash going to #11 Mike Dionne. Dionne found the winners circle two more times, taking the reverse heat and leading all but 10 laps to capture the 35-lap feature. #72 Stewart Lee came into the night as the points leader and increased his lead over #29 Gilles Cyr to 158 points to win the Mid-Season Championship in the Bomber car class. Thirteen Sprint cars took to the track. #08 Shane Woolcock won the B dash with the A going to #7 Mark Gall. #11 Duane Zeinstra dominated to win the B heat, with the A heat going to #15 Rob Scott. Track conditions were great for the 30-lap feature. #25 Chris Root started on the pole and led for 11 laps until Zeinstra

Courtenay lawn bowlers are doing well on the road this season.

Parksville has been the major destination, with two tournaments at that location. The Tenderfoot event is for less experienced bowlers and is a one-day,

two-game format. The teams must have at least one novice from this year and the others no more than three years bowling experience. I will borrow from

a report submitted by Lorna: The Tenderfoot Tournament was held June 30 in Parksville in beautiful B.C. liquid sunshine with three teams from Courtenay participating. Cath, Don and Chris Wiseman were in the early draw and in the late draw were Pat Norrad, Cec Kerr and Trudy Mooney as well as Gord Norrad, Lorna Setter and Rosemary Montreuil. All three teams won their first game. Gord’s team won both their games and came in second place in the late draw receiving $60 prize money. Parksville also hosted a Mixed Pairs event July 7-8. Again, three teams from Courtenay participated, Peter Harding and Irene Whitehouse; Vern Greenhill and Melie Ursulom, and Archie and Linda Harris. These two teams each lost only one game to take second and third in the A event. Aggregate Friday Night has a night off on July 13 as the Provincial Ladies singles come to town. Very few competitors this year as earlier events have taken some of competitive ladies. Bowlers can only represent B.C. in one of Singles, Pairs or Fours for the nationals, as the events are all played at the same time there, which is in Montreal this year. Mens and Ladies Pairs have two more nights to run.

THE TEAM OF Lorna Setter, Rosemary Montreuil and Gord Norrad finished second in the late draw at the Tenderfoot Tournament in Parksville.

Need a hand up? Habitat for Humanity can help Renée Andor Record Staff

“We give a hand up — not a hand out,” said executive director Deb Roth of Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North’s work. The non-profit organization has built six homes over the years for families that needed a hand up to obtain their own home in the Comox Valley. Six more Comox Valley families will soon receive own their own home in Courtenay thanks to Habitat for Humanity. The lot at 1580 Piercy Ave. has been cleared and prepared to build three duplexes over the next year or so. “At this point, our objective is to get two duplexes to lockup by the end of September,” Habitat for Humanity’s build coordinator Peter Sanderson said Tuesday, adding his goal is to have one home completely built by Christmas. “And the idea would be to have everything completed by next summer or early fall — that’s the hope.” Sanderson noted six families have already been chosen for these homes. To qualify for a home, families must demonstrate need, have children and spend 500 hours giving ‘sweat equity’ to build their home. In return, they own a home with no down payment and a no-interest mortgage through Habitat for Humanity. Community help with fundraising and physically building the homes is key to the project, and Roth said the response had been amazing. “The community support to all the different things has been, it’s been great so far, and we hope it contin-

ues to be,” she said. For the first time in the Comox Valley, some teams have signed up to help with the build. One of them, the Women Build team, has been busy fundraising for months, and will be the first all-women Habitat for Humanity team to physically build a house from start to finish — including fundraising — in the province. The group has a fundraising goal of

including the ReStore at 1755 13th St. in Courtenay. The store offers discount home improvement materials such as furniture, appliances, floor covering, paint, a variety of fixtures, doors, windows and cabinets. Individuals and businesses donate the items, and they are sold for 50 to 70 per cent off regular retail prices, which helps people in the community access building materials

The community support to all the ❝ different things has been, it’s been great so far, and we hope it continues to be. ❞ Deb Roth $100,000. The 191 Construction Division at CFB Comox also has a team, which is already laying out the footings for one of the homes. And, 98.9 JET-FM is working to raise $100,000 towards the project. Roth noted fundraising is going well, but there’s still plenty to do, and it can be challenging for the teams to come up with these large amounts of money. “It’s hard to come up with a lot of money for each team because this is still one community,” she said, but added the extra help fundraising is making a big difference to the project. “For previous builds, we’ve done all the fundraising ourselves so then it comes down to a crew of a few good people going out there and exhausting themselves selling raffle tickets and doing all kinds of different things, whereas this way it’s diffused.” She added Habitat for Humanity receives funding from a variety of sources,

for home maintenance and renovations. Also, the money Habitat for Humanity receives from these sales goes towards its local homebuilding projects. The ReStore will pick up items when they are in good resalable condition. To contact the ReStore, call 250-334-3784. The organization will also remove salvageable materials from renovation or deconstruction sites. It operates a recycling program through the ReStore, which Roth noted keeps recyclables out of the landfill and generates funds by recycling things like scrap metal. Habitat for Humanity also receives donations of, or discounts on, the land it acquires to build homes on. Or people can donate their old vehicles, services such as landscaping or skilled trades, or money to help give local families their own home. As for this build at 1580 Piercy, Sanderson noted the sewer will go in early

next week, and then work will begin on two more foundations. On Wednesday, Habitat for Humanity will host a ground-breaking block party so the families that will live in the homes can meet each other and the people involved in the project. He said Habitat for Humanity will soon seek volunteers to help build the homes, but noted many individuals and businesses in the Valley have already been integral getting the project to this stage. “These people have all come together, it just blows your mind, it’s really good,” he said of various companies that have donated time, supplies or expertise to the project. “And they’re not doing it for any gain or anything, they’re just saying ‘well you know it’s time we got involved in something’ and they’re just helping out. It’s wonderful.” For more information, visit www.habitatnorthisland.com. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Local fishing offers up some pleasant surprises E

laine and I were sitting home after a busy day of watching the First of July Parade and other festivities at Lewis Park when the phone rang. There was an excited voice telling me about this 85-pound halibut their nephew caught that afternoon and would I like to take a picture of it? My response was an enthusiastic “Yes” and shortly after I took off to Union Bay. Well my instructions on how to get to the house were confusing and after driving around the wilderness of Union Bay for half an hour I gave up and came home – without the photograph. However Ken Brown of Campbell River and Rick Robertson of Victoria did land an 85-pound halibut while fishing off Hornby Island on July 1. Since I knew the weather was quite windy I enquired about their boat – they were fishing from an 18-foot Double Eagle and in the process of landing the fish they took water over the stern. It is a great, big fish story that happened under challenging conditions – congratulations to the successful anglers. I also have a report of a 40-pound chinook taken off the hump at Kitty Coleman. These big fish have been caught in local Area 14 waters. The boat launches used were Union Bay and Kitty Coleman. I suggest we sometimes overlook the quality of our local fishing because it is right on our front doorstep. Pictured with this column is a prime 67cm chinook taken off the south end of the Kitty Coleman hump by Chuck Ashcroft. The day we fished it there were 10 other boats in the area and we saw a couple of other salmon netted. This fish was taken on a four-inch Cop Car Coyote spoon fished at 200 feet. The next day another friend had a double Pacific cod hook-up followed by a double chinook hook-

are always hungry and get in the way of the more desirable salmon. When you hook up with one you get about the same fight from a piece of kelp as you do from a Pacific cod – however they do have some redeeming qualities. When you decide to keep one and try it you will be pleased with the fillets from fish in the five- to eight-pound range. Because of the body shape you do not get good fillets from the smaller fish and

OUTDOORS

RALPH SHAW up in close succession just after the change of tides in the same waters. For the past couple of seasons we have seen a large increase of numbers of Pacific cod taken in local waters, especially from Campbell River down to Cape Lazo. They are an important food fish that are caught by the commercial fishery in large numbers and supply some of the fish for our fish and chips restaurant trade. When fishing for salmon the cod can be a nuisance because they

they tend to be mushy when filleted. The last time I was out we kept three cod that weighed between five and six pounds. I filleted and candled them and found no parasites in the clean white flesh. After you take the fillet off the fish and skin it, run you finger along the centre of the fillet and you will feel the line of small nuisance bones that are so important to remove to make the fish enjoyable on

the table. Use a sharp knife and make two cuts along the line of bones and it is a simple matter to remove the thin slice of bony flesh. Their flesh is not very different than prime lingcod. An important practice in handling these fish is to bleed the fish when you kill it and keep them in a cooler on ice until you can clean them. Depending on the size of your boat I have noticed quite a few recreational boats are now coming up with ingenious cleaning tables on the stern to help ensure the freshness and quality of the food they bring home from the sea. Commercial fisherman learned a long time ago about the importance of cleaning and icing their catch to keep its quality. The moral of this tale is the next fishing trip you go on, do it locally. You may get some pleasant surprises.
