End of a vision Dementia care model too far ahead of its time Jim Zeeben News staff

The house is silent and empty now but Nichole Donaldson’s dream is still vividly alive. Donaldson made headlines for her vision of a new way to care for the elderly as they make the difficult transition from independence to the need for constant care. Open Hearts Adult Daycare welcomed its first clients to a refurbished home at 647 Kelly Rd. in April 2011. On June 15, the service closed its doors for the last time and the house was put up for sale. Unless she can find an unexpected source of funding, Donaldson says her vision of a private service to complement crowded public care is just not financially feasible. Not yet anyway. “I’m still very passionate about the model of care,” she said, listing off demographic stats to support her case. Aging Baby Boomers are beginning to suffer from dementia and the population bulge their generation represents has caused concern that public health care can’t keep up. A primary nurse with 30 years of experience, Donaldson believes groups of people with dementia can get along fine.

Nicole Donaldson sits in the empty living room of the home she formerly used for her Colwood business Open Hearts Adult Daycare. After two years, Donaldson says red tape and a lack of government funding made it financially impossible for her to continue offering the service. “It only takes two people to look after 10 instead of 10 people looking after 10,” she said, explaining why she thinks her model will have to one day replace the labour-intensive model that remains in place. “We won’t be able to sustain that.” Donaldson, who has worked for two decades at Mount St. Mary in Fairfield, says it’s usually when people are taken out of social situations and isolated that negative behaviours begin to manifest.

People need to express themselves and will act out if no one is paying attention to them. What’s more, Donaldson said, problems arise when people who have been isolated are then reintroduced into a group. Her idea appears to have worked, judging from the testimony of those who used the service before it shut down. It just couldn’t compete on costs against public services that are heavily subsidized

by the health authority. “You keep hearing about this growing tide of dementia but I, for the life of me, cannot understand why VIHA would not support her efforts,” said Barb Denney, who used Open Hearts about once per week for respite from caring for her husband.

CURTAIN CALL A drama is playing out with community theatre on the West Shore, though this action isn’t taking place on stage

Roger Traviss was the technical director at Isabelle Reader Theatre for the past 22 years. His position was terminated on July 18.

Charla Huber News staff

ACT 1

urrently Isabelle Reader Theatre is the only playhouse on the West Shore. It was built in 1977 by Langford taxpayers. It's located in Spencer middle school and is being run by the Sooke School District. For the past 22-years Roger Traviss has been the technical director and has provided the technical support for all community and school groups using the space. Whenever anyone was in the theatre, Traviss was there too. On July 18, the technical director position was terminated by the school district. SD 62 also has a theatre at Edward Milne community school in Sooke, but that one doesn't have a technical director. "I think it's the end of the Isabelle Reader Theatre," said Traviss, shocked to hear his position was eliminated. The theatre will continue to operate as usual with school and community groups, but without a hired technician. The theatre shows its age. The lights are run on an Apple computer that’s at least two decades old, and the dimmers in the theatre are obsolete which means replacement parts are not available. Over the years, Traviss has put a lot of

File Photo

his own equipment into the theatre. He is the only person who operated the lights and sound system. "If I would have stayed here and retired I would have donated the equipment. But under the circumstances, I don't think I will do that," Traviss said, explaining he will be taking his amp, speakers and equalizer. While Traviss will no longer be working at Isabelle Reader Theatre he still belongs to Local 168, a theatre union, and works on local productions such as the Rock the Shores, held July 13 at West Shore Parks and Recreation. The school district can’t comment on personnel issues, but superintendent Jim Cambridge did say it is not common for school theatres to offer technical support.

ACT 2 When the new high school is built at Royal Bay in Colwood, a planned theatre will become the third in the school district.

Over the past few years, there was talk about the school district partnering with Colwood's proposed Emily Carr WestShore Performing Arts and Education Centre. In a recent meeting between the City of Colwood and SD 62, a decision was reached that the school and the performing centre would both have theaters independent of each other. Apparently for union reasons, a school theatre cannot have a gift shop run by volunteers and can’t sell alcohol or naming rights – revenue options a community theatre might want. The decision to build separate facilities allows the high school theatre, which will be built at least two years before the art centre, to go ahead without having to consider the requirements of a community theatre. “This frees up the school to move ahead and do it’s own work,” said Coun. Judith Cullington. The idea is for the Emily Carr centre to be used solely by community groups while the high school theatre will be used

for all school classes and performances with the possibility of being rented out to community groups as well. The extra theatres will help ease the space crunch currently affecting the West Shore theatre community. Some groups renting space at the Isabelle Reader theatre have expressed frustration with not being allowed in the theatre during school hours to set up for performances and have had difficulty booking time because the theatre is being used by school groups. The Isabelle Reader theatre has 302 seats and the proposed theatre for the Royal Bay high school will have roughly the same. The theatre for the Emily Carr WestShore Performing Arts and Education Centre is still in the pre-design stage and the size and number of seats has yet to be determined. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

ACT 3 (related story below)

Colwood study examines feasibility of new art centre Colwood city council voted to put $30,000 towards the development of the Emily Carr West Shore Performing Arts and Education Centre. The money, which will come out of a recently awarded $318,000 Small Community Grant from the province, will be used to conduct a feasibility study that will look at potential funding sources and the money

matters of the project. The study will also develop a preliminary design for the centre and a business plan. “It is time to bring together a real nuts and bolts vision for what we can bring to our community,” Coun. Cynthia Day said, “with a view to be sustainable economically and to bringing economic diversity.” The centre is proposed to be built in

Royal Bay and will feature a performance theatre, an art gallery, studios and a coffee house, among other elements. “I think we need to be moving ahead on this business case, the feasibility study, because if it isn’t feasible we need to drop it right now,” Coun. Judith Cullington said. “We’re at the point where we need to find out if this thing has good legs or not.”

Council approved the funding on the condition that city staff will work with the task force to develop terms of reference. Colwood will also be looking into the possibility of raising money by way of a legacy fund through the Victoria Foundation. The study is expected to be completed and presented to council in November. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Colwood wants half CRD’s suggested sewage capacity Kyle Wells News staff

Colwood city council has decided to buy into the Capital Regional District’s (CRD) proposed new sewer treatment plant for half of the capacity originally anticipated. On July 23, council passed a motion to request enough capacity to serve a population of 11,500 sewer users, based on a projected population growth of about two per cent per year until 2020. The CRD had estimated Colwood to have a population growth rate of 3.65 per cent per year. Michael Baxter, Colwood’s director of engineering, has run his own numbers and believes the two per cent to be a more realistic estimate. Under that formula, the estimated increase to property taxes is $27 for a $400,000 property. If Colwood were to buy in at the CRD’s capacity estimation the increase would be closer to $193 for the same property. Colwood, and all other municipalities involved, must decide how much capacity in the proposed treatment plant it requires.

The hitch is that Colwood, a “It’s going to be probably the city growing in size, must buy in biggest decision we as a council now for its anticipated growth make in our term, and I’ve never for the next 20 years. taken out a mortgage without Langford and View Royal are knowing all of my costs,” Lukens in the same position but so far said. “I think they need to hear Langford city councillors have that Colwood’s situation is very expressed support for the plan. different than any of the others View Royal public works com- ... that are participating in this.” mittee chair Coun.

In fact, that time as well. neither of them, in my opinion, Coun. Shari Lukens, along is fair. But we have to find a way with Coun.

Songhees First Nation tightens control of Discovery Island Islands off Oak Bay included in First Nation reserve lands Laura Lavin News staff

Discovery Island is closed to the public because of a wolf spotted roaming the land, but the Songhees First Nation says the island is not open to the public at any time. “One-third of Discovery Island and all of the Chatham Islands are Indian Reserve,” said Songhees bylaw officer Trevor Absolon. “A lot of people are totally unaware of that.” The islands are not disputed territories, but established Indian Reserves that have been home to the Songhees First Nation for thousands of years, and a place where band members lived until the late 1940s. “You have to forgive people to a

STRAY AMMUNITION AND EXPLOSIVE OBJECTS Bombs, grenades, shells and similar explosive objects are a hazard to life and limb. Do not pick up or retain objects as souvenirs. If you have found or have in your possession any object, which you believe to be an explosive, notify your local police and arrangements will be made to dispose of it. No unauthorized person may enter this area and trespassing is prohibited. BY ORDER Base Commander Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt

MUNITIONS ET EXPLOSIFS PERDUS Les bombes, grenades, obus et autres objets explosifs similaires posent des risques de blessures et de perte de vie. Ne ramassez pas ces objets et ne les gardez pas comme souvenirs. Si vous avez trouvé ou si vous en avez en votre possession un objet que vous croyez être un explosif, signalez-le à la police locale qui prendra les mesures nécessaires pour l’éliminer.

If you wear safety glasses at work, you should get the best possible fit to protect you from hazards as well as to insure that you see as sharply as possible. Your eye doctor will first give you a thorough vision examination, checking for sources of eye irritation and other vision related problems. He or she will also check your visual acuity, eye coordination, and muscle function. In recommending the beset safety glasses for your needs, your eye doctor will want to know the type of work you do. What level of eye protection is required for your particular occupation? Does your work require that you view object at far and near? Depending on your age you may need safety glasses that correct for vision both close up and in the distance. The position of the tasks you perform must also be considered. If your close up work is above eye level, for example, there are even glasses that have the bifocals on top so that you can work above your head with comfort. Ensure your safety glasses and all your eyewear are meeting your needs as well as possible. See your Optometrist for regular eye examinations.

OUR VIEW

Time to move forward on deer For the past month, the Capital Regional District has been offering the public a chance to share their opinions on deer management options, through a series of online forms. The fourth instalment in the weekly survey, the deadline for which is today (Aug. 1), solicits input on capture and relocation methods and repellants. For the first three surveys, which solicited feedback on controlled public hunt, sharpshooting, administering immunocontraceptives to deer, deer-vehicle collision mitigation and public education options, a grand total of 102 responses have been received. Compare that to the thousands of responses the CRD received when it solicited general public feedback on the issue last year. The huge difference could indicate a couple of things: expecting many people to fill out online forms is unrealistic; and that the public believes the matter is now in the CRD’s hands to deal with, promptly. The vast majority of the public is not versed in the best repellent methods for discouraging deer or how best to mitigate collisions with the animals. Trying to determine whether people prefer hiring sharpshooters to pick off deer in the dark of night over a controlled public hunt is moot, since it will evoke the same emotions as previous consultations. The CRD appears to be bending over backwards to further prove that public consultation is being done, through the use of an unwieldy online survey – one that the advisory group can take or leave, according to the group’s stated criteria. Instead of playing around with optics on this issue, the CRD needs to instruct the advisory group to complete its research, avoid the distraction of further polarized suggestions, and come up with a solution. The final report, with recommendations on how and whether or not to proceed, is due in September. We trust that members of the group will have done their due diligence, taken the advice of those in the know and put forward a strategy that people, and the deer left behind, can live with.

I wasn’t sure I was hearing it accurately, or making up meanings. Putting on the ear-aids had seemed easy when Sue showed me. At home it became complicated.

I suspect it’s because of the fiddly concentration that is needed to manoeuvre these small objects, which are as valuable as jewels. It’s also because of indolent techavoidance. Unlike the process of putting on glasses, I doubt that ear-improving behaviour will ever come naturally to me. • G.E Mortimore is a longtime columnist with the Goldstream Gazette.

LETTERS Rock the Shores not the success that some make it out to be

Pet neglect is a heartbreaking tragedy that can be avoided

Enough already about how well planned the Rock the Shores concert was. Lineups and more lineups. Right from the start we had the mice maze of gates to get to the one and only entrance for 12,000 to gain access into the concert. This was just the beginning of frustrations. How about the food and toilet lines? How does a well organized concert run out of toilet paper by 6 p.m.? Lack of communication was also apparent. We had called West Shore Parks and Recreation to ask if we were able to bring in chairs and if we could take our drinks out of the beer gardens. We were advised ‘yes.’ That was not the correct answer. I have since spoken to many ‘rockers’ who felt the same as we did. The event was not well organized. We are not a minority. In fact, probably just the opposite. Fun was not had by everyone. No one obviously spoke to the few thousand ‘rockers’ who stood in line at the beer gardens for hours only to be told they ran out of beer. And what about that line up? Herding of cattle comes to mind. This entails waiting with thousands of patrons. Pushing, shoving and butting in was a normal occurrence. At about the same time the concert was put on hold because of the weather, the beer also dried up. We were informed those without tickets would not be able to get a drink as the beer was running out. Out of sheer frustration heard while talking to others in line about the “organizing” or “lack of” this seemed to be the last straw for many. Upon leaving the concert I had to marvel at the thousands of people still waiting in hopes of sipping a cool bevy. Who would break the news to them? Yes, the venue was great. Let’s be honest here and take ownership of some of the shortcomings. It was the first of such an event and there is bound to be a few miscalculations. Maybe in future, advertise that there will be a limited amount of space available in the beer gardens and for God’s sake get the ladies more toilet paper. Richard Rodger Langford

Re: SPCA presses charges after death of Persian cat (July 27) I write this with much heartbreak and sadness for the poor cat who died. I have had four cats over the years, and unfortunately, due to a combination of illness and age, three of them have passed on. I cried like a baby when I had to say my final goodbyes to each of them. I still have my beloved little diva, Olivia, and I constantly shower her with love and attention. My cats have never been without food, water and all the comforts of home, and have been given huge amounts of love. If they even show a sign of discomfort or illness that could be serious, I have immediately taken them to my vet. Animals are like children, they require care and love constantly. If a person cannot provide that, they should not adopt them into their home. Tamara Shiels Langford

Property tax rates in View Royal leave little room for fire hall Re. Projected cost of View Royal fire hall seems fair (July 18) Yes, Mr. Mollon, the Town has told us the cost per average household will be an additional $100 to $150 (not $200 as you indicated) but that’s on top of an already increasing mill rate. The mill rate consistently goes up, not down. That additional tax burden also doesn’t take into account other capital projects that will have to be undertaken out of necessity and other worthy capital projects that should be considered in the future. Those will also impact our tax burden. I wouldn’t count on View Royal’s tax base increasing to the extent it helps distribute the proposed $8 million loan across more payers in any meaningful way as you suggest. We’re no Langford. View Royal’s population in 2011 is reported to be 9,749 and includes approximately 3,500 taxpayers total. That figure includes the commercial payers (132). Our projected population in 2026 is estimated to be 10,700. Do the math on that. We can’t count on that many new property taxpayers in View Royal. We don’t have nearly the same kind of population trajectory that Langford does out to 2026. Before I buy into an $8 million loan, I’d like some reassurance that we didn’t just

look at the question “should we work with the building we have or build new?” but rather that we also evaluated in a very detailed manner the possibility of partnering with Colwood. They too have a composite fire department, they have a newly renovated and expanded fire hall and I think achieving some economies of scale might be possible. Langford has a population of about 30,000 with three fire halls and eight full time fire department personnel. Combined, View Royal and Colwood have a population of about 26,000, and between us we have approximately 12 full time fire department staff (not counting administrative personnel and part-timers). It seems logical to me that a partnership might make a lot of sense. Potentially, we could work with Colwood, operate a fire sub-station here in View Royal, preserve our response call times, achieve some staffing efficiencies and both communities might net out well on the financial side. Just an idea I think warrants exploration and one I am hopeful the experts will provide more information about regardless of how difficult a scenario that is to contemplate politically.

Speed enforcement is needed along Goldstream Avenue Re. Playground for speeding tickets Langford Lake Area residents welcome the RCMP to our neighbourhood. We just wish they could come more often and in another location further down Goldstream Avenue along the lake. Each day residents along the lake take their lives in their hands turning in and pulling out of their driveways and side roads. We are constantly tailgated and honked at for driving the posted 30 to 50 km/h speed limit. Early morning and end of the day drivers speed through the area with little regard for anyone trying to pull off or onto Goldstream. Unfortunately, the City of Langford engineering department recently told me there are no immediate plans for a southbound access from the Trans-Canada Highway to our Leigh Road interchange. Consequently, Goldstream Avenue will still be the first access to Langford. Sure hope the fellow I spoke to was ill informed. Lynne Ferrie Langford

Lack of coverage on robocall case a media shortcoming There are things I keep wondering about where our media people are concerned. Perhaps it goes back to the George W. Bush days and the weapons of mass destruction that never were and when people who questioned that stance were accused of lack of patriotism. There were no questioning of the media upfront in that era. Here we are now in Canada, which as a country prides itself in being ahead of American mass hysteria. Yet people do not seem to be concerned with the fact that the last election may well have been stolen from Canadians. There now have been seven cases of robot calls before the Supreme Court which have had an effect on the outcome of the last federal election. The Conservative government who had promised to back the investigation into this travesty has gone to the Supreme Court of Canada to block it. We should certainly wonder why. The judicial officer appointed under the Federal Courts Act has thrown out their appeals and stated: “Far from being frivolous or vexatious, or an obvious abuse, (which the Conservative lawyers had argued) the applications raise serious issues about the integrity of the democratic process in Canada and identify practices that if proven, point to a campaign of activities that would seek to deny eligible voters their right to vote and/ or manipulate or interfere with that right being exercised freely – all of which permitted to escape even the prospect of judicial scrutiny, could shake public confidence and trust in the electoral process and in those who in good faith stand for public office.” My question has to be, where are our media in this situation? Surely this is one of the most important cases relating to Canadian democracy that there have ever been in this country. Why is this not being reported? Shirley Stirrett Langford

Quick response averts forest fire Brush fire in Langford a timely reminder of dry conditions Kyle Wells News staff

Langford firefighters put out one of the first brush fires of the season on Saturday as temperatures and wind continue to create forest fire conditions. Some people setting up a tent at the All Fun RV park, in the area behind the overflow parking, heard crackling and saw a fire spreading on a sloped area. Langford deputy fire chief Kerry Zado happened to be in

the area for a fundraiser and arrived immediately. While waiting for the trucks to arrive Zado said he watched the fire grow from a three-by-three metre patch to a 15-by-15 metre patch in a matter of minutes. Firefighters fought the blaze for two hours to completely extinguish it. At its peak the fire measured about 21 metres by 40 metres and was heading towards wooded areas at the back of the slope. A quick response saved this situation from being much worse, Zado said. “The potential was certainly there,” Zado said. “If the people didn’t call us right away we would have had a

lot worse fire.” The episode serves as a reminder that foilage is drying out and conditions are getting worse for forest and brush fires. While the hot weather has been late this summer, Zado said it’s been especially breezy, which also contributes to dry conditions. “We ask everybody to be very careful, dispose of their cigarettes properly,” Zado said about the common fire starter. “Use your ashtray, don’t toss them out the window.” Anyone who sees, hears or smells fire should call 911 or Forest Service BC toll free at 1-800663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular phones. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Victoria transit improves ridership despite cutbacks Daniel Palmer News staff

Greater Victoria transit users broke ridership records for the second consecutive year, despite a cutback in service hours. B.C. Transit recorded 25.35 million trips throughout the Capital Region for the year ending March 31, a modest increase of 0.4 per cent over 2010-11 numbers. “We’re seeing a long-term commitment from our passengers,” said Transit spokeswoman Meribeth Burton. “Monthly bus passes are up, single tickets are up, U-Pass usage is also up substantially.” In 2010-11, Capital Region ridership was 43 per cent higher than in areas with similar-sized transit systems, according to the most recent numbers provided by the Canadian Urban Transit Association.

Those same numbers show Victoria transit users get comparably good value for their money. Operating costs for each Greater Victoria passenger were $3, compared to an average of $3.55 in other regions. Ridership accounts for approximately 30 per cent of revenue for the transit authority. The remainder is comprised of provincial funding (34 per cent), property tax (21 per cent) and fuel tax (11 per cent) supplements. Smaller amounts are also derived from the B.C. Bus Pass program and advertising. Burton said ridership will continue to grow as long as local governments commit to building high-occupancy vehicle lanes and other transit efficiencies. “The more we can make it attractive, the more ridership will grow with us,” she said. dpalmer@vicnews.com

More than two millennia ago, Aristotle wrote that humans are social animals. On Thursday, that sentiment will serve as the focus of a new evening service for adults with developmental disabilities. Go West Recreation Club is based at the same Meaford Avenue location used by West Coast Human Services during the day. The clients for both services are people with a range of developmental disabilities, from autism to Down syndrome. During the day, clients are assigned by Community Living B.C. The provincial agency won’t supply clients for the evening program, though funding might be available based on individual assessments. Jodie Comerford and Keira Angus are the two young women behind the idea for Go West Recreation Club. Comerford’s father runs West Coast Human Services, where both women currently work. “Some of our clients I’ve known for 20 years,” said Comerford, just 20 years old herself but already an experienced supervisor and manager who has grown up working with people who have developmental disabilities. The idea for an evening social came from meetings with people involved with caring for adults with developmental disability. The goal is to provide an experience, rather than just a break for the client’s primary caregivers. “We really want to focus on (enhancing) the quality of life of clients rather than the respite side of things,” Comerford said. Though they can hold the nights with as few as two clients, the ideal, at least to start, is six. “We really want to normalize it,” said Comerford, who’s studying biology and psychology at the University of Victoria. “There are clubs for people without developmental disabilities -- we just want (Go West Recreational Club) to be a fun night.”

Cadets award Albert Head officers with lifetime achievement awards Two men who have devoted many a summer to the Albert Head Air Cadet Summer Training Centre in Metchosin were honoured with lifetime achievement awards. Lt.-Col. Richard Mudryk and Lt.-Col. (Ret) Doug Slowski received the Cadet Instructors Cadre Lifetime Achievement award, June 27.

Only 13 officers in the country were awarded with the honour. Mudryk has spent the past 50 years with cadets. He’s been one himself and later worked with young cadets. Currently, he is the commanding officer at the Albert Head Cadet Summer Training Centre. “The buck stops here,” he said. “The

training is excellent. It’s not just sports or academics, it combines everything. I think it’s the best youth organization in Canada.” In the winter, the 64-year-old lives in Nanaimo, but every summer he lives in Metchosin at the Albert Head camp. This is the fifth summer he’s spent there. Slowski was the commanding offer at

Albert Head from 2000 to 2005. He was a cadet during his high school years and then signed up as an adult to help new young cadets. He joined the first cadet squad in Campbell River when he was 40 years old. “Before that, they were busing kids to Comox,” Slowski said. He retired from cadets last year when he turned 65. Now he volunteers with the Air Cadet League. That group maintains the planes and gliders for the cadets and helps with fundraising. Slowski also lives in Nanaimo. The camp sees more than 1,000 cadets every summer from across B.C. and the Northwest Territories. For more information on the Air Cadet Program, Cadet Instructors Cadre and Albert Head Air Cadet Summer Training Centre, go to www.cadets.ca. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

Supporting veterans Colwood’s Cockrell House will receive $50,000 from the City of Colwood to go towards operational costs. This money will come out of a Small Community Grant given to Colwood by the province. Cockrell House, which opened in 2009, provides homeless veterans in the Victoria area with housing and food and helps them connect with services provided by the Veterans Association. The South Mid Vancouver Island Zone Veteran’s Housing Society say they have helped support two dozen veterans since last fall.

Good deeds get noticed Kyle Wells News staff

Colwood youths Erika Lahnsteiner, 12, left, and Lindsay Hargreaves, 14, stand with Colwood Mayor Carol Hamilton who honoured the pair through the Pay it Forward program.

At Colwood city council meeting on Monday, July 23 two local youths were recognized by Mayor Carol Hamilton through the Colwood Pay it Forward program for their contributions to their community. Erika Lahnsteiner, 12, and Lindsay Hargreaves, 14, received certificates for their work in organizing a community cleanup in their Latoria Walk neighbourhood on May 27. The two girls recruited about 40 residents to help clean up streets, paths and parklands around their neighbourhood.

The Pay it Forward program was established in 2009 to recognize good deeds by residents. Since then, about a dozen residents have been recognized for everything from fundraising efforts to picking up garbage. The program is funded by donations. “The program is designed to acknowledge and encourage acts of kindness, generosity, selflessness or outstanding support and contribution to the community,” said Hamilton. “A community is a group of people who come together where they live and work to try and improve the standards of living and quality of life. This is an example of that.” kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Jackie Richardson in Big Mama! The Willie Mae Thornton Story can be seen at the Belfry Theatre until Aug. 19.

Blues ring out at Belfry A new Blues musical, Big Mama! The Willie Mae Thornton Story, stars Canadian jazz legend Jackie Richardson backed by an all-star band including Juno nominee Bill Johnson, Ron Casat and Andy Graffiti. Willie Mae Thornton began singing in her father’s Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala., and by the age of 14 she was touring with the Hot Harlem Revue. In 1951, Thornton signed a recording contract with Peacock Records and subsequently recorded Hound Dog, the Leiber and Stollerpenned tune that was written for her and stayed at No. 1 on the Billboard R&B charts for seven weeks. Three years later, the song would launch the career of Elvis Presley. Like Big Mama, Richardson got her start singing in church. A multi-faceted performer, Rich-

ardson has won two Dora Awards (Toronto Theatre Awards) for Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Cookin’ at the Cookery; a Gemini Award for The Gospel According to the Blues and she’s been nominated for Junos, Jessies (Vancouver theatre awards), Betties (Calgary theatre awards) and, in the U.S, an NAACP Image Award. The soulful revue pays homage to blues singer Thornton: the godmother of rock and roll. With a vocal style not easy to imitate, only a few – like Janis Joplin – have been able to summon Thornton’s mix of raw power and deep emotion. The show runs until Sunday Aug. 19 in the Belfry Theatre Mainstage, 1291 Gladstone Ave. Tickets start at $25 and are available at 250-3856815 or online at tickets.belfry.bc.ca. llavin@vicnews.com

Setting up for Sooke’s fine art show Pirjo Raits News staff

Alan Graves is a master at converting an ice arena into an art gallery, the hardest part of setting up the Sooke Fine Arts Show. It takes dozens of volunteers and hundreds of hours to achieve the look and feel of a gallery. And it happens beautifully every year. Graves takes care of details: the large and fine points, from the layout of the panels for the exhibition’s modular system to the lighting, and hanging of the art work to the tiny tweaks to straighten a painting. For the past five years, Graves has been the designer for the Sooke Fine Arts Show. He sorts through hundreds of works of art, finding the perfect spot to display each and every one. Each year is a little different and Graves said this year they are consistently getting a number of art pieces that have the same esthetic. He felt the digital jurying process worked out very well and he was able to get a preliminary view of the work. With that look at the work to be displayed, he was quite surprised at the quality of the

by the mentorship group. Graves gives the final nod of approval. “From the front office to the people who sweep up the floor, there is a positive attitude. They serve lunch, which is indicitive of the care of the people,” said Graves. “It’s fairly unique.” Graves has two other experienced people helping with the grand scheme of things.

In fact, preventable injuries are the leading cause of death for British Columbians between the ages of one and 44, and claim the lives of more children in the province than all other causes combined.

These injuries devastate lives. They also place an enormous burden on our health care system: at over $4 billion a year, the care and rehabilitation of victims of preventable injuries is one of the most significant costs to our provincial budget.

We want to get you thinking about risk and consequences. Every day, more than 1,100 British Columbians are injured seriously enough by predictable and preventable injuries to

Who we are Preventable is a group of companies, organizations and individuals that have come together to address this ongoing tragedy, and the incredible physical, emotional and financial toll it takes on our province.

We are a registered non-profit organization, governed by a board of directors that represents organizations including TELUS, Pacific Blue Cross, London Drugs, Insurance Bureau of Canada, BCAA Road Safety Foundation, Justice Institute of BC, WorkSafeBC and the BC Ministry of Labour. Our work is made possible through the financial and inkind support of over 80 other companies and organizations.

What we’re doing

Our goal is simple: to change the way British Columbians think about preventable injuries. By raising awareness, starting dialogue, and transforming social attitudes, we want to significantly reduce both the number and severity of preventable injuries in BC.

By staging provocative, unexpected events in provocative, unexpected places, we want to cut through the noise and get British Columbians thinking about risk and consequences. We want to challenge the idea that serious injuries only happen to “other people.” We want

We’ve invested considerable resources to develop a provincewide, multi-year strategy. Guided by research and best practices, we’ve developed an approach that we hope will help British Columbians connect the dots between their current attitudes and their current behaviour; between their understanding of the inherent risks and the burden of preventable injuries in the province.

to speak to that little part of you—that little voice inside your head—that knows that sometimes, bad things do happen.

We need your help The individuals, corporations and organizations that have joined our community share a concern about this growing epidemic. They also share a conviction that the situation can and must change. We invite all British Columbians to join Preventable and work with to us create a culture where we all look out for each other.

Vees vet named Grizzlies captain Penticton product Zach Urban leads squad in new ownership era Kyle Wells News staff

He’s big, he’s talented and he’s the new captain of the Victoria Grizzlies. Defenceman Zach Urban, 19, stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 205 lbs. He’s coming from the Jr. A national champion Penticton Vees to join the Grizzlies as the team’s first Bill Bestwick-era captain. Through 58 regular season games and 15 postseason outings last season, Urban chalked up four goals and 18 assists, along with 88 penalty minutes. General manager and head coach Best-

wick said the team is moving forward and building up talent. He expects Urban to be a defensive stalwart on the team, along with a leader. “He comes to us knowing what it takes to be a champion,� Bestwick said, “knowing what hard work and dedication and commitment is required to be successful at this level.� The Vees set league records for wins (54) and consecutive wins (42) last season. Urban, born in Alberta, has lived in Kelowna since he was 14 and is excited for the move to both Victoria and the Grizzlies squad. “I’m just going to try to bring my best foot forward. I’m going to have to lead by example being captain,� Urban said. “I’m really excited. I think we have a great group of kids coming in that I think, if we jell properly, we’re going to have a really

successful year.� Along with Urban, defenceman D.J. Jones, 20, is also coming from Penticton in trade for Alex Holland. Forward Brett Hartskamp is also becoming a Grizzly after being acquired from the Swan Valley Stampeders Hockey Club out of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. Forward Turner Lawson, 19, has been acquired from the Vernon Vipers. Goaltender Brady Rouleau and forward Garrett Skrbich are also joining the team in a multi-player deal with the Westside Warriors. Training camp begins Aug. 20, with the team’s first exhibition game scheduled for Aug. 24 at home against the Cowichan Valley Capitals.

The Victoria Shamrocks will face the Coquitlam Adanacs in the first round of playoffs on Saturday after ending the season with two definitive wins. The ’Rocks clinched a playoff spot last Friday after defeating rivals the Nanaimo Timbermen 11-7 at home, in what was their biggest game of the season. The Shamrocks needed one win of their next two games to secure an entry into postseason play. Victoria’s big guns were too much to handle for the Timbermen, with Corey Small leading the way with five goals in the Victoria win. Jeff Shattler contrib-

uted a hat trick, Ryan Benesch added a pair, while Derek Lowe had one goal with three assists. The ’Rocks wrapped up their season Sunday with a 14-10 win over the Timbermen, which locked the Shamrocks into second place in the Western Lacrosse Association standings. Victoria won one and lost two during the regular season against third-place Coquitlam. The Victoria Shamrocks best of seven series against the Adanacs begins Aug. 4, 7:45 at Bear Mountain Arena. See victoriashamrocks.com.

was often an ordeal.” But when she took her dad to Donaldson, his bathing ritual became something he looked forward to every week. “He was a little nervous,” she said. “But he did want to try it. And when he did try it I’ve never seen a smile so big on his face.” When Donaldson closed her doors, Moreau says she felt stuck. “Dad would not feel comfortable at all with a having a nurse come to the house.”

Donaldson, who had continued to take nursing shifts around her day schedule, helped ease the transition by getting Moreau’s father to use the facility at Mount St. Mary. And while Moreau was grateful, she thinks the subsidized service might make it too difficult for private alternatives to do business. Public care is a fraction of the cost -- about $5 compared to $40 for private. The problem is that public facilities are more

prone to refuse outsiders during annual routine flu seasons, which can last for months. “In which case we’re up the creek. We have no option. I don’t know what we’re going to do.” While the original goal of Donaldson was to run Open Hearts without government assistance, she realized that the business model just can’t work without subsidies. Donaldson said she eventually did approach the Vancouver Island

Health Authority with cap in hand. But when the decision came down that no money would be made available for her, she realized it was time to put her dream on hold before losing everything. Donaldson, a Licensed Practical Nurse, is continuing to support people with dementia and their families. She offers a companion service. For more information, call 250-391-9827.

NOTICE OF ROAD CLOSURE AND DISPOSITION The City of Langford hereby gives public notice of its intention to close portions of road, shown in heavy outline in Schedule ‘A’ below, known as Savory Road, which were dedicated as highway by Plan EPP21816. The 4,192m² (1.0 acres) portion of Savory Road intended to be closed to traf¿c and removed as highway dedication will be considered by the Council of the City of Langford at its regular meeting at the City Hall, 3rd Floor, 877 Goldstream Avenue on Monday, August 20th, 2012 at 7:00pm. Persons who consider they are affected by the Bylaw will be provided an opportunity to make representations to Council at the meeting or by delivering a written submission to the Corporate Manager by 4:00 pm on that date. The City of Langford also intends to transfer the closed portion of road in fee simple title to Clara Kramer, the owner of the adjoining properties shown as “Rem part Section 99” and “99” below in exchange for 2,290m² (0.4 acres) of fee simple land to be dedicated to the City for the purpose of road, and for granting the City a Statutory Right of Way for highway purposes over both the closed road areas shown below and approximately 1.4 hectares (3.4 acres) of additional area on the adjoining properties, all of which is required to facilitate realignment of the roads that the City requires.

To follow her dream of a new model for caring for people with dementia, Nichole Donaldson bought a three-bedroom rancher in Colwood and worked with the city to make sure it met municipal requirements. After a new zoning category was created for her and bylaws adopted to regulate her one-ofa-kind facility, the home was retrofitted with reinforced floors, fire sprinkler system and other work. “Because it was the first of its kind it went though lots of municipal process,” Donaldson said. It was an expensive investment, but Donaldson doesn’t begrudge Colwood. She says every municipality has its hurdles no matter where she looked at setting up.

“My husband continues to be a very difficult guy with his dementia,” Denny said. “Nichole was the only person, of all the resources I tried, who was able to make a connection with my husband.” While other services she tried felt almost like

baby-sitting, Donaldson had the empathy needed to get through to dementia patients. Her husband is now receiving full time care at Kiwanis Pavillion, where he’s doing well. Mary Moreau started using Open Hearts for its bath service. Donaldson had converted the home’s entire
