Neighbours pull three teens from burning house BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

Three teens have their neighbours to thank for getting them out of a fire that erupted at a home south of Nanaimo on the weekend. Residents in Cedar were startled into action at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday when they heard the loud rush of an overheated barbecue propane tank venting – the first sign something had gone seriously wrong – at a home at 1497 Emma Way. Wendy Kennedy and her husband Eric were just getting their morning coffee when they heard the commotion. “We had just sat down with our coffee when all of a sudden we heard this loud noise,” Wendy said. “We just looked at each other and didn’t know what the heck it was. To describe it, it sounded just like a huge jet engine right in our front yard. It was so loud. I don’t know how those three people in the house didn’t wake up.” Eric, a former firefighter with the North Cedar Volunteer Fire Department, rushed to the house two doors down while Wendy called 911. Eric searched through the house and hollered until two teen girls – completely unaware of the fire – answered and he got them out of the house. Wendy sat with the girls, whom she said appeared to be groggy and in shock while Eric and another neighbour attempted to control the fire with garden hoses. A third neighbour, Paul Amann, arrived on scene about the time the girls remembered there was a teenage boy still sleeping in the basement. “Paul ran in,” Wendy said. “They told him what room he was in. Fortunately it was in the basement because the roof was already in flames.” ◆ See ‘FIRE’ /6

Nanaimo Fire Rescue crews hose down wood chip piles and a conveyor system after a fire broke out at the Western Forest Products mill at Duke Point Tuesday.

Mill fire blackens city skies BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

A fire in a conveyor belt Tuesday sent a massive column of black smoke over Nanaimo harbour and set piles of wood chips ablaze at the Western Forest Products mill at Duke Point. The fire started shortly after 5 p.m. and required several Nanaimo Fire Rescue trucks to bring under control. “It looks like they had some kind of

mechanical malfunction, or something happened, that caught the chips on the conveyor belt on fire. Before anybody caught it, it spread up the conveyor belt and into the hopper and onto the chip pile,” said Wade Smith, assistant fire chief. Firefighters had difficulty tackling the blaze because of its distance from water hydrants. Smith said crews had to lay down about 150 metres of hose, relayed through at least two pumper trucks to generate enough

water pressure to fight the fire. A front-end loader was also used to spread the wood chips to break up the fire in the large wood chip piles. “They had two monitors going,” Wade said. “They were shooting over 1,000 gallons a minute. They needed to juice it up.” Smith said the exact cause of the fire is being investigated, but there appears to be nothing suspicious about it. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Swimmers dive into challenge of gruelling Salish Sea crossing

Man accused of punching new mother

BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Committee agrees to have another go at Guinness standard in 2013 BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

A

group of Nanaimo youths is taking aim at another attempt at beating the Guinness World Record for longest street hockey game. In June, 40 people attempted to play non-stop for 105 hours and 17 minutes, but event organizers ended the game at the 50-hour mark – almost halfway to their goal – due to a rash of injuries. “It was a tough call to make to pull the game,” said Tali Campbell, president of the Youth Sticking Together board of directors and a John Barsby Secondary School student. “The first question all the guys asked was, ‘Can we do it again next year?’” Faced with this enthusiasm, the board agreed and the 2013 Longest Street Hockey Game takes place Aug. 9-13, 2013 at the Nanaimo Curling Centre. The group learned some valuable lessons from this

year’s game, such as keeping more medical supplies on hand, scheduling shifts based on each player’s needs and bringing in more medical personnel, including massage therapists. Injuries included one broken ankle, someone who needed stitches and a whole lot of bruises and sore muscles. “We know what we need for next year,” said Campbell, adding that the players, who started off worrying too much about scoring goals and playing competitively, also know what they need to bring to the table. “At the end of the day, score does not matter, time matters,” he said. “In itself, 50 hours is an accomplishment to not overlook – it’s second-best in the world.” Through its various fundraisers leading up to the event as well as money raised during the game, Youth Sticking Together is donating $6,000 to three community organizations – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Vancouver Island, Crimson

One of the goals for the organization was to show the community that youth can band together for positive reasons. Campbell said everyone involved felt validated when people stopped by and congratulated them on their efforts. “When people came in and told them they were doing a good job, it put smiles on their faces,” he said. “I think we’ve taken a step in the right direction.” For more information about Youth Sticking Together and upcoming fundraisers, please go to www. youthstickingtogether.com. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

NEWS BULLETIN FILE

A group of 40 Nanaimo-area youths played street hockey for 50 hours in June, falling short of their goal to surpass 105 hours and 17 minutes, the Guinness World Record. The group announced this week plans to take another shot at the record in 2013.

Nothing but the blue-green shimmer of ocean will stretch before three Vancouver Island swimmers as they make their way across Georgia Strait Saturday (Aug. 11). Not even the horizon will be discernible among the cloak of ocean and sky surrounding them. The situation can be psychologically challenging, said Victoria swimmer Karen Tannas. It isn’t something that bothers her, but she knows many swimmers who find dealing with the expanse of ocean before them daunting. Tannas is joining two other swimmers – Susan Simmons, from Victoria, and Lorraine Langstaff, from Sidney – who will take turns swimming the 10-hour relay, 35 kilometres from Davis Bay, near Sechelt, to Neck Point in Nanaimo. The trio, the Georgia Girls, also challenged Vancouver and Okanagan teams to participate. Tannas said Simmons, who has multiple sclerosis, is a big advocate of using exercise to help with the disease. The third annual Salish Sea Swim will start at 9:30 a.m. and is expected to end at Neck Point sometime between 6:30-7:30 p.m., depending on currents. “Last year we couldn’t land at Neck Point because we got stuck in a strong current so the swimmers were going backwards,” said Tannas. “You can always get caught in a particular current.” Each swimmer will try to swim a minimum of one hour at a time. When not in the water, they will remain in the escort boat. This isn’t the first time Tannas has braved the waters of the strait – she also swam last year. The event will also help her prepare to swim the English Channel, which she and Simmons plan to take on in 2014. The Salish Sea Swim is also used as a means to bring attention to increased pressure being placed on the strait and threats to marine life such as toxic chemicals, pollution from sewers and storm-water, oil spills and more.

3956 Victoria Ave.

A Tofino man was charged with assault after punching the mother of a two-dayold baby while she was recuperating in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s maternity ward. Police were called to the hospital shortly after 6 a.m. Saturday by a nurse who told them the victim, 27, was assaulted while holding her infant daughter. The victim told police there was an argument between her and the suspect and at one point, while holding her child, she was punched in the head. Fearing for the child’s safety, she placed the baby in a bassinet and pushed her assailant out of the room. The suspect then fled the hospital. Police said neither the victim nor the infant were injured in the altercation. Alcohol was believed to be a factor in the suspect’s behaviour. Police have not said what the relationship is between the man and the woman. Police arrested Daniel Archibald Frank, 30, of Tofino, on Nicol Street shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday without incident. Frank was held in custody until his appearance in Nanaimo provincial court Tuesday. He was charged with one count of assault, plus breach of probation from a previous court order in February, when he was prohibited from having consumed alcohol while in the presence of the victim.

Strait challenge benefits community BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

David Strang and Saul Hilchey used the power of wind and money Friday to help local charities and community projects. The team paired up to raise $27,000 for the Gyro Georgia Strait Charity Challenge, which saw Strang pilot his windsurfer from Pipers Lagoon Park to Sechelt, a 40-kilomtere journey across Georgia Strait. Strang made the crossing in one hour, fifteen minutes with the help of a 15-knot prevailing wind and a support boat provided by Tony Harris, of Harris Mitsubishi.

“It was great to see Tony offer that help,” said Strang, a retired investment advisor. “We can’t do the crossing without an escort boat and Tony really stepped up, and those guys took a beating out there with threeto four-foot waves for a couple of hours. This effort is all about the community working together.” Hilchey, an investment advisor at RBC Dominion Securities, said key corporate sponsors include Dynamic Mutual Funds ($7,500), Bank of Montreal ($7,500), Manulife Financial ($5,000) and RBC Foundation ($5,000). Garth Johnstone, of Archie

Hope Centre, Forest Drive neighbourhood park and the Nanaimo Child Development Centre. T his is Strang’s sixth crossing under the Nanaimo Gyro Georgia Strait Charity Challenge and the team has now bumped the total funds raised from all crossings to $150,000. The event takes place every second year. “We like to give our sponsors a little bit of a break,” said Strang. “These are hard times. Economically it’s more difficult. Big corporations are cutting costs and they don’t have as much money around. The credit goes to Saul, he raised all the money. I’m just the rider.”

The event began a few years ago when Strang’s friend, Moe Graham, eyed the other side of the strait one day and suggested they windsurf across. Strang suggested they do it for a cause, and the Gyro Georgia Strait Charity Challenge was born. The Nanaimo Gyro Club raises and donates money for local charities, youth projects and city parks. Donations are still being accepted by sending a cheque, payable to the Salvation Army, to Saul Hilchey at RBC Dominion Securities at 101-5050 Uplands Dr., Nanaimo B.C. V9T 6N1.

is not protected from being sold. Craighead confirmed with the News Bulletin that neither Wildwood nor the Nanaimo River property are in any danger. He said the total tax bill owing on the Wildwood property is $333 and does not have to be paid this year. The total amount the TLC must pay before Sept. 24 in delinquent taxes on 24 properties provincewide is $12,150.62. “We will have no trouble paying it off,”

said Craighead. Tax sales are generally held in B.C. municipalities on the third Monday of September. Gail Adrienne, executive director of the Nanaimo and Area Land Trust, said TLC’s good intentions to protect and preserve as much property as possible has led to its current financial situation. “It was all with good intent, but they’ve taken on some major land acquisitions, cer-

tainly way beyond anything we’ve attempted to do,” she said. While both organizations have experienced government funding cuts and a reduction in donations, Adrienne said NALT’s board has acted much more cautiously. “Within our means,” she said. In an address on the TLC website, Craighead said the board is meeting this week to address its financial issues. Some responses will include reducing

monthly costs, which will likely include staffing cuts, restructuring all operations, capping debt, and engaging members and donors to contribute more money. “We need to shift our focus from growth toward ensuring longterm sustainability,” wrote Craighead. “We should be under no illusion. This is the most difficult financial situation that TLC has ever faced.” Created in 1997, TLC is a non-profit chari-

table land trust that works throughout the province protecting habitat for plants, animals and natural communities as well as properties with historical, cultural, scientific or recreational values. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Batons, Taser necessary to subdue man A suspect refused to go down without a fight with Nanaimo RCMP members on the weekend. The suspect, wanted on four outstanding warrants, was spotted getting into a car on Northfield Road Saturday at about 11:30 a.m. by a pair of offduty Mounties. The Mounties called in the suspect’s location, type of car he was riding in, its licence plate number and direction of travel, so members who were on duty could track him down. Police stopped the car a short time later near the intersection of Turner Road and Glacier Way, but when they approached, the suspect dove out of the car from the back seat through the front passenger side window. During the ensuing struggle, officers were repeatedly kicked at and punched while rolling through thick brush with the suspect, who was only subdued after pepper spray, batons and a Taser were deployed. Cuffed, fatigued and outnumbered, he was deposited into the back of a police car. The altercation resulted in scrapes and bruises, but neither the suspect nor arresting officers required medical attention. Scott Douglas Holmes, 28, of Nanaimo, already wanted for two counts of breach of recognizance plus two counts of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, faced a provincial court judge Sunday charged with resisting arrest and breach of undertaking (possession of a cellphone). Holmes remains in custody until his next appearance in Nanaimo provincial court Tuesday (Aug. 14).

Nanaimo team wins at nationals I

FIVE CLEAN runs through agility course put pair atop podium. BY BETH HENDRY-YIM THE NEWS BULLETIN

S

oaring temperatures didn’t slow down Sugar and Tressia Toole at the Agility Association of Canada National Agility Trial this past weekend. After pulling in five clean runs, they took first place in Veterans double drop 16-inch and became Canadian National Agility Champions. “It was a true winner’s performance,” said Bernadette Van Klavaren, Toole’s coach and trainer. “She held it together during training and in the competition physically and mentally. That’s very impressive in someone that’s only 21.” Toole said the last run was the most stressful. It was Standards and a runoff where the order of competitors is reversed. For the event, the course is set and dogs have to take the obstacles in a set order within a specified amount of time. If they get a clean run, they earn a bonus 27 points. “Up to the last run I knew we were in first place. That usually means you go first. With a run off the order is switched so Sugar and I were up last,” Toole said. For Toole, going at the end of the pack meant her fellow competitors would be lined up around the ring watching her run, waiting for any mistake that would catapult their dog into first-place contention. “It’s not as though they want you to fail, but if you make a mistake it moves them into better position to win,” Toole said. “I knew we had to have a perfect run, so we were slower in time but she nailed every obstacle.” Now that the competition is over Toole is relieved that all the training and hard work paid off. Sugar will be semi-retired and any practise will focus on play and fun. Having an event of this magnitude in Nanaimo took considerable planning, organization and commitment.

BETH HENDRY-YIM/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Tressia Toole and Sugar pull off their final of five clean runs en route to a first-place finish at the Agility Association of Canada National Agility Trial in Nanaimo this past weekend.

Point of Interest Three class levels are available in AAC agility – Regular, Specials and Veterans. ◆ Regular has handlers entering their dogs in their specific height divisions. ◆ Specials is a class where handlers drop jumps by one level. ◆ Veterans class is for dogs over the age of five who have been competing in Specials for a minimum of 12 months. A double drop category has the handler lowering jumps two height levels. Any drop in jump level is done for the safety and comfort of the dogs.

At the opening ceremonies Mayor John Ruttan commended the work done by volunteers, adding that it brought a huge credit to the city. “The volunteers were incredible,” said Van Klavaren, who was also the event chairwoman. “They went above and beyond, some staying past their two or four hour shift and helping all day.” Though most of the volunteers were from the Island, many came from across the country. Some were partners or family of competitors while others volunteered simply for the joy of watching dogs compete. “One couple drove from Alberta just to be a part of the action,” said Van Klavaren. The hottest temperatures of the summer kept everyone extra

aware of the dangers of heat stroke. But with pools set up in centrefield for the dogs, tents at ringside and water coolers and hoses readily available, everyone kept cool. “It helped that on site St. John Ambulance volunteers kept announcing to drink water and stay hydrated,” Toole said. “Every time they got on the PA I made sure I got some fluids in me.” Extra protection and shade was provided for the dogs by opening up the horse stalls and Agriplex with volunteers acting as security to keep the animals safe. But it wasn’t just the competitors that were well looked after. Quality Foods donated a healthy array of food and throughout the weekend kept trays and tables well stocked. To help those working in the field, the Parksville store manager, Randy Henson, and a helper delivered water to timers, scorekeepers and other ringside volunteers. Whether it was the hot weather, the allure of watching dogs in action or the chance of petting a puppy, the event brought more than 5,000 spectators of all ages, more than city officials had previously estimated. Families, seniors, and young couples sat on blankets or bleachers to watch the dogs perform, some returning for more entertainment on multiple days. And they weren’t disappointed. Toole wasn’t the only local winner. Anne Charlton and Nick podiumed at eighth place in Regular 26 inch; Janice McAllan and her beagle, Piper, took fourth in double drop six inch, and tenth in Veterans with Beagle Addy. Angela Maharajh and her Havanese, Bella, stood third on the podium in Veterans six inch and Tom Ikeda placed 13th with Pepper in Veterans. In addition to her podium finishes, Janice McAllan and Piper also won a Lifetime Achievement Award, the highest standing an agility dog can earn with 100 standard class qualifying scores and 125 games or steeplechase ‘Q’s.

EDITORIAL

Olympics show a better world In a world where there is often precious little to celebrate, where citizens must die for democracy, people are gunned down in a movie theatre and countless other acts leave us saddened, disheartened or just plain cynical, every two years a spectacle takes place that breathes life back into the human spirit. The Olympic Games are a two-week celebration of youth, goodwill and ultimate effort. A glimpse, perhaps, into the lighter side, the better side, of the human condition. The Olympics are a spectacle where failure doesn’t result in civil war or poverty, but only an acknowledgement that more work is required. To lose leaves little consequence; we simply move on to the next event and hope. Nanoose Bay’s Mike Mason’s high jump effort came up just short of the bronze medal. Simon Whitfield’s crash in triathlon and the women’s loss in soccer to the U.S. left us disappointed. But to win leaves us punching the air in celebration, with lumps in our throat as our national anthem plays. We see the joy and understanding in the athlete at the top of the podium, having carried an entire nation’s hopes on their shoulders and succeeded. To have so much sacrifice pay off. That is what we celebrate. And while every Olympics has its shortfalls, corporate sponsorships and huge investment in venues, the price is worth it. For two weeks, the world converges in one place without politics, religion or greed. For two weeks, we get a glimpse of a world without borders. As the 2012 London Olympics draw to a close, and as the Olympic Flame is once again set to be extinguished, we can look back and pocket the moments of inspiration, learn from the failures and embrace the human race. The Olympics is not only a spectacle, but a necessity. The Nanaimo News Bulletin is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-yearold pipeline is acceptable? Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made that trip safely for nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for neardaily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming. ◆ Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Linley Valley offers carbon solutions To the Editor, Re: City signs on to make cuts to emissions, July 31. It’s good news that Nanaimo plans to cut emissions and become carbon neutral by investing collaboratively with other Regional District of Nanaimo municipalities in regional emission reduction and carbon offset projects. Protecting Linley Valley West could be an ideal regional carbon-offset initiative, for three reasons. 1. Linley West lands have mainly second-growth forest cover, which absorbs carbon more efficiently than old-growth forest, so it provides greater carbon offset value. 2. Current zoning of Linley West lands allows development, so this area will qualify as a carbon offset if zoning changes and/or other strategies are implemented to protect the forest cover. 3. A protected Linley West and adjacent areas of Linley Valley will contribute to broader environmental goals, as part of a regional initiative to save at-risk coastal Douglas fir bioregions with sensitive ecosystems. Moreover, Linley West can become a regional attraction by offering low-impact recreational and learning opportunities, such as hiking, birdwatching, nature tours, and locally-based environmental study projects for students at all levels. Local carbon offset and emissions reduction initiatives help all of us to recognize the additional value of our greenspace. The City of Nanaimo emits most of the RDN’s greenhouse gases: by protecting Linley West and other significant areas of green space, it can offset its impact on global warming and reduce its costs to become carbon neutral.

Eyesore needs creative solutions To the Editor, Re: ‘Barney Building’ sitting idle, Aug. 2. It is a travesty that non-resident owners of properties let them become eyesores to any city. The Steiners don’t care about Nanaimo, they care about their investments. They will hold on to the “Barney Building”until the rest of downtown has been improved, then sell when the most money can be made. This is a sad truth. This means that a creative solution must be found to deal with this eyesore – with the permission and even some assistance from the Steiners. Why doesn’t the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association propose that the building (at least the street level section) be covered in a fantastic marine mural, like the one done on the backside of the McGavin bread building? Why not use what is now an eyesore and create an attraction? In the big picture it won’t cost much money, but the benefits to the downtown, tourism and the general well-being of our citizens will be dramatically improved. The reality is we are going to be staring at the Barney Building as it is for years to

stores like Lululemon or Urban Outfitters to be a magnet for shoppers. There are a large number of local teens and young adults who travel to Victoria and Vancouver to shop at those stores. Popular retail outlets such as these would draw shoppers to downtown from all over the Island. Sherri Prevost Nanaimo

Purple building perfect for downtown market To the Editor, Re: ‘Barney Building’ sitting idle, Aug. 2. I have truly been enjoying our downtown core for the past five years now. From the waterfront, to Commercial Street to Heritage Mews, our downtown is definitely a fun place to visit. It’s growing with so many interesting

little shops and tasty cafés that I find myself heading downtown more often. Regarding the Barney Building, I would love to see a public market located in that spot. An atmosphere not unlike Coombs Country Market or Granville Island Market would make a great tourist attraction as well as another fun alternative for locals. However, accessible parking would need to be considered as well as keeping a balanced blend of good quality vendors. If retail shops go in, it would be wise to choose popular

Composting operation drowns residents with stench To the Editor, Re: Grant awarded to help with carcass disposal, Aug. 2. This article states that Regional District of Nanaimo will use $17,000 for a “study to locate possible sites for a mass carcass compost”. Here is an idea that could save RDN from any effort: why not use existing Duke Point composting facility? Nobody in south Nanaimo, Cedar or Extension will notice additional stink anyway. All residents there are directly benefiting from a previous RDN study by enjoying nauseating, obnoxious stomach-turning stench coming from the composting site at Duke Point and its auxiliaries.

Speak up! You can comment on any story @ www.nanaimobulletin.com

It is good that existing composting facilities are located upwind from south Nanaimo, so with every breeze the putrid smell of rotting and decomposing does not go to the waste, but lingers in the noses and lungs of happy residents. Furthermore, the RDN should revoke the suggestion to green bin users to freeze kitchen scraps during hot weather to reduce

stink until a garbage collection day. It stinks before, during, and after collection days anyway. Composting companies, those that harvest green money from our volunteer compost gathering, actually do nothing to prevent disgusting stench being generously discharged from their locations. At the fee they currently charge us to take scraps, in the event of a major livestock emergency they will accept anything. As far as any honest bacteria or viruses go, I expect that they will all drop dead from stink as soon as their host carcasses are dumped at Duke Point compost facility. Zlatko Zvekic Nanaimo

To the Editor, Re: ‘Barney Building’ sitting idle, Aug. 2. After reading your article on the vacant A&B Sound building, it brought me back to when my father and I would go for hours and hours there to ponder all the different music genres together. The building used to have such a great energy to it. It now lacks any kind of energy. It brings down the downtown core. A market would be the utmost best project for the downtown area. We need it. Nanaimo is flourishing and bringing in a market could support local farmers and businesses. I hope to see something spectacular become of that building that has so much potential.

A proposal to go to municipal-level taxpayers to fund a multi-million dollar shortfall to bring back rail service to Vancouver Island isn’t gaining any steam in the central Island. The proposal, made last week by Island Corridor Foundation executive director Graham Bruce, got a big thumbs down from Regional District of Nanaimo chairman Joe Stanhope. The ICF recently received $15 million in joint federal and provincial funding to upgrade the track between Victoria and Courtenay, but that total did not factor in necessary rail bridge repairs, which are estimated to cost an additional $5.4 million. Stanhope said he supports the rail line, stressing if it is lost, it STANHOPE will never return to Vancouver Island. But he agrees towns, cities and regional districts should not be tapped. “Regional districts are not like municipalities,” he said. “We don’t have the authority under the Local Government Act to do that, so it would take voter assent for us to do anything like that.” Stanhope said he is confident the RDN will be willing to help out the rail line in other ways, should a need be identified. Despite the funding setback, Stanhope said he remains optimistic about the future of the railway. “Southern Rail seems like they are quite positive about the opportunities to expand freight service,” he said. “The solution to this is to get more things on rail and off the highway. That’s going to be the saving grace. A lot of things would depend on it. Certainly the gravel hauled daily over the Malahat could go by rail. Look at the trucks that are on the highway. The truck traffic is huge.”

A former North Oyster Elementary School student wants to see the school’s old lunch program put back on the menu. At the end of the school year, parents learned that provincial CommunityLink funding, which supported the school’s hot lunch program, was being re-allocated to instructional supports for students. In its place, the Nanaimo Foodshare Program will be providing meals at a cost of $3.75 per student whose need was identified by a take-home survey. School district representatives have said extra meals will also be available to students to ensure no child goes hungry. The meals previously cost $1.50 per student. Stacey MacAdam, North Oyster Parent Advisory Council member, is concerned that the cost will be too much for some families, and she is trying to fundraise about $30,000 by summer’s end to keep the hot lunch program in place. Terry Giannakos said he was spurred to action after reading about the issue. Giannakos attended North Oyster Elementary School through Grades 1-7. At the time, his father owned the Omega Restaurant on the outskirts of Ladysmith (now The Gryphon’s Lair). After 20 years away, Giannakos has returned as executive chef and manager of The Gryphon’s Lair and is interested in giving back to the community as his father did when he owned the restaurant. The restaurant is donating 25 per cent from all food purchases made at the restaurant Aug. 23 to the North Oyster Elementary School hot lunch program. Giannakos is also trying to pull together corporate sponsorships. In addition, Yellow Point Lodge has made a $900 donation to the cause. For more information or to help, please contact MacAdam at 250-667-2561.

ight original shows from as far away as New York City make up this year’s Fringetastic theatre festival. But the vast majority of shows in the two-week festival are from Vancouver Island. “We really want this to be about the community of Nanaimo,” said Jeremy Banks, artistic producer of Fringetastic. Fringe festivals feature roughly 60-minute theatre shows of original work. Fringe is unjuried and entries are picked by lottery. “It’s luck of the draw,” Banks said. Fringetastic reserved 50 per cent for Island performers, with slots open to national and international performers, who will take to one of two stages at the Port Theatre and the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. Seeing unjuried, original theatre means taking a slight risk on

the part of the audience. “I can’t say what shows are going to be awesome and which are not,” Banks said. The show from New York earned positive reviews from LA Weekly and CBC and focuses on the story of a man and his dog, with all the love, loss and dog yoga in between. Rel8shun, a drama about relationships, earned five nominations in Calgary’s CAT Awards. Banks reached out to performers and festivals last year as part of a tour of North American fringe festivals as a performer, and continued that work through administration this year. “Part of this festival has been about connecting with other people and festivals,” Banks said. Nanaimo-area theatre companies are well-represented, including Child of a Hoodlum Productions’ The Cult of Brother XII, based on the cult leader operating at Cedar-by-the-Sea in the 1930s. ◆ See ‘THEATRE’ /16

Theatre festival focused on locals

◆ From /15 Bill Miner and Antonio Gradanti provide music and lyrics, with movement by Holly Bright for the cast of seven actors. “They’ve got this awesome dream team creating it and they’re all locally based,” Banks said.

He said one of his goals was to help foster original theatre in Nanaimo by putting local shows next to veteran, international performers to show that one stacks up next to the other. The trick now is to get audiences out to see that, he said.

“Nanaimo has some of the most incredible talent ... if people are willing to take a chance and see it,” Banks said. Last year the festival ran for a weekend, with the final day the best attended. By stretching the festival to two week-

ends, Banks said he hopes to create buzz for the performers and draw in larger crowds. Those crowds not only help performers cover travel and production costs, but also secures financing and enthusiasm for next year’s festival. “That’s the kind of incentive we need to do this next year,” Banks said. The festival also offers a preview night on Wednesday (Aug. 15), 7-9 p.m., in the Port Theatre’s lobby for people curious about fringe theatre. Admission is $7. Each night of the festival also features the Fringe Hub, in the Port’s lobby, beginning at 7 p.m., where artists and audience members interact. Live music runs Thursday to Saturday, beginning at 9 p.m. – admission is free. “It’s really there to give people a chance to interact,” Banks said, adding that a chalkboard for writing review will be a

Raiders hot to start season

I

JR. FOOTBALL team wins 4414 in Week 1.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The V.I. Raiders were pumped up for the start of football season, and they played like it. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team showed a lot of big-play potential and a little bit of nerves in a 44-14 win over the Westshore Rebels on Saturday night in Victoria. “I thought the effort was there consistently and that was important,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. The game changed with three minutes to go in the first half, with the Raiders up 10-7. Quarterback Jordan Yantz scored on a one-yard plunge, then 16 seconds later defensive back Ariel Fabbro intercepted a pass and ran it back into the red zone. Seconds after that, Yantz found Dustin Pedersen for a three-yard TD and all of a sudden it was 24-7 going into halftime. Yantz had a huge game, going 17-for-24 passing for 331 yards, four touchdowns, no interceptions and 89 rushing yards. Whitman Tomusiak had two touchdown grabs including a 70-yarder, with Marshall Cook also catching a TD pass. Tomusiak and Peder-

sen were both over 100 yards receiving and tailback Ashton Galloway gained 108 yards on 19 carries. Mark Mueller had three field goals, including a 37-yarder, to go with five converts. Defensively, Shane Stonehouse had a sack and a fumble recovery and Ash Gayat and Jordan King-Nyberg also had sacks. Full defensive statistics are unavailable because of malfunctioning scorekeeping software at Bear Mountain Stadium.

Pirates upset at provincial tournament BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Quickfacts ◆ V.I. RAIDERS (1-0) play their home opener Satuday (Aug. 11) against the Langley Rams (1-0) at 5 p.m. at Caledonia Park. ◆ LANGLEY RAMS are coming off a 42-14 road win over the Okanagan Sun last Saturday. ◆ FOR TICKET info, visit www.viraiders. ca.

Victoria’s touchdowns were scored by QB Mark Black, on a one-yard keeper, and Eric Eggleston on a 24-yard pass from Jesse Herman. “I think we did pretty good for our first game, not having an exhibition game,” Fabbro said. “We have a lot to work on, a lot of little things, just to get the techniques right.” ◆ See ‘RAIDERS’ /B3

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

V.I. Raiders receiver Dustin Pedersen makes a catch during the first half of Saturday’s game in Victoria against the Westshore Rebels. The Raiders won 44-14.

The Nanaimo Pirates couldn’t contain opposing teams within the confines of Serauxmen Stadium. The Hub City Paving Pirates surrendered home runs in all three of their losses this past weekend at the B.C. Premier Baseball League championships and missed out on the provincial final. The Okanagan Athletics won the title on Sunday with a 9-7 victory over the North Shore Twins. “We’re all pretty disappointed,” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. “With the anticipation of having it at your own field and having big crowds here, you want your kids to play the best they can at that point in the season and it just didn’t happen for us.” The Pirates lost 8-4 to the Twins on Friday, got clobbered 9-1 by the Coquitlam Reds in Saturday’s early game and then lost 4-1 to the A’s in Saturday’s late game. In Friday night’s feature game, the stands were so full that people were sitting in the stairwells. They were treated to fireworks, as the Twins hit a grand slam in the third inning to go up 4-2 and then the Pirates’ Brady Rogers hit a two-run home run later in the inning to tie it. Nanaimo surrendered three home runs in the blowout against Coquitlam and another costly jack in the loss to Okie. The hot air and a breeze toward right field meant left-handed hitters were smacking the ball at – and over – the green monster all weekend long. All told, the four teams combined for 13 home runs at the tournament. ◆ See ‘PREMIER’ /B2

AAthletics win title in Nanaimo The hot-hitting Okanagan Athletics beat the rest of the best and won the B.C. Premier Baseball League championship at Nanaimo’s Serauxmen Stadium. The A’s defeated the North Shore Twins 9-7 in Sunday’s final. Even though it took nine runs for the A’s to win, they know it took more than just bats to win the day. “Everybody came out the way they should, everybody was excited to play,” said Josh Croft, Athletics pitcher and shortstop. “It was a team effort by everybody. Pitchers came out throwing, batters came out hitting.” Okie built a 7-2 lead through four innings, but had to keep the hammer down to stay ahead of the previously undefeated Twins. Brandon Sonnenberg led the A’s with a single, triple and four RBIs and Croft hit two doubles

Premier Pirates proud after strong campaign ◆ From /B1 “If we had have been patient at the plate, our lineup’s stacked full of left-handed hitters and a lot of guys that can elevate the ball,” said Doug Rogers. “We didn’t get our pitches, we didn’t take advantage of that … We had as much of an advantage as any team here with the way the weather was, and the wind, and the way the ball was carrying.” Rogers said nerves might have contributed to the Pirates’ performance at provincials. Players swung at pitches outside the strike zone that they wouldn’t usually swing at, and made defensive mistakes that they didn’t often make during the regular season. In the first game against the Twins, there was an error on a potential double-play ball that would have got the Pirates out of the inning unscathed. Instead, the bases were loaded and the Twins followed up with their grand slam. “In any big tournament, if you make mistakes they end up costing you, where in the league you can get away with those mistakes,” Rogers said. “It seemed like every mistake we made, it ended up a number on the board against us.” So the Pirates had to watch the

and a single and drove in two runs. Morgan Lofstrom threw two relief innings to earn the win and Croft came in for the save. “We had a great group of guys out here and we fed off each other,”

said Sonnenberg. “We bring a lot of energy to the table. Once things start getting rolling it seems like we can’t be stopped.” This year’s premier league championship is the first for the Ath-

letics franchise. “There’s no feeling like it,” said Croft. “It’s unbelievable, just the work that we’ve put in and to see the result we got, I couldn’t be any happier.” sports@nanaimobulletin.com

B.C. final from Serauxmen Stadium’s stands, something that was hard to do, said the manager. Eight players graduate from the program, including Brendan McCarthy, Ben Dunbar, Colby Morgan, Bryan Odgers, Nathan Odgers, Chris Faber, Ryan Smith and Crosby Rushton. The returnees, led by Justin Clarkson, Griffin Andreychuk, Luke Skingle and possibly Alex Rogers and Brady Rogers, will get another crack next year. “The program itself is really healthy. You can see by the people in the stands. Players played hard on the field, did the proper things on and off the field…” Doug Rogers said. “Yeah, it would’ve been nice to win a championship and wave it around in front of everybody on your home field, but it just wasn’t meant to be. But if you look at the overall season, it was something to be really proud of.” BASE LINES … McCarthy and Dunbar were named to the BCPBL’s first all-conference team, while Andreychuk, Alex Rogers and Morgan were chosen second-team all-stars … Clarkson, Andreychuk and Skingle will get to keep playing ball this summer as part of Baseball B.C.’s provincial team. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Coal Miners make semis

I

SENIOR MEN finish third at provincials.

The Nanaimo Coal Miners showed they could beat the best in the province, but they still had to settle for a third-place finish at provincials. The Cross & Co. Coal Miners won two of their four games at the Baseball B.C. senior men’s championships in Prince George over the long weekend. The Miners started the tourney with a 4-2 loss to the Trail Orioles, then hammered the Kelowna Jays 13-4 and shut out the Langley Blaze 8-0 to finish the round-robin portion of the tournament with the No. 1 seed. In Monday’s semifinal, the Blaze, eventual B.C. champions, defeated the Coal Miners 4-1. The highlight of the tournament came in Sunday’s shutout win over the Blaze. Coal Miners pitcher Darren Kolk threw a no-hitter in the seveninning contest, striking out six batters. Throwing in 35-degree

heat that day, Kolk kept the opposition off-balance with a mix of fastballs and sliders. He also led the charge offensively, going 3-for-4 at the plate. Greg Wallace hit a home run in that game and Jeff Vickers had two RBIs. In the next day’s rematch, however, offence was tough to come by as the Coal Miners managed five hits total against a Blaze pitcher who had good stuff. Joey Benda suffered the loss, allowing two earned runs on five hits in a complete game. In the first game of the tournament Ben Cairns led Nanaimo, going 3-for-4, and Kolk was 2-for-4. Dale Ballance was the pitcher of record. In the blowout against the Jays, Benda was the winning pitcher. Devon Franklin and Charlie Strandlund hit home runs, Kolk was 2-for-2 with three runs scored, Ballance hit a single and a double and Cairns also had two hits. Next summer’s B.C. championships will be held in Victoria.

Raiders gain confidence from season-opening win ◆ From /B1 Raiders defensive players said coaches had them wellprepared for Victoria’s rushing attack in the first half. Matt Blokker said his D did a good job limiting Rebels star tailback Greg Morris. “I don’t think he had a whole lot of carries for big yards; he didn’t have any big rips against us and we stopped him in the pass,” Blokker said. “Our game plan was to make the other guys beat us.” The Raiders’ offence came largely through the air and appeared crisp for Week 1, though Jordan Yantz thought it could have been better still.

THE NEWS BULLETIN

V.I. Raiders kick returner Dustin Rodriguez is tackled by a Victoria Rebels player.

“I could have been hitting a couple more guys in the hands when it was going over their heads,” he said. “There were a couple nice plays that receivers made, a couple nice throws, a couple nice runs by Ashton [Galloway]. The end result was pretty good.” The Raiders recognize there’s work to be done. The kick return unit had some issues and fumbled twice, and Blokker also lamented a couple of ill-timed penalties on defence. But the V.I. team will be in a better position to work on those things now that it’s gotten some game action, some film, and a win in the standings.

“Now we’ve played live, now we’re going to have a little more confidence in ourselves as a team,” Blokker said. “It’s a lot of pressure for these guys in the beginning, to live up to what it’s like to be a Raider.” Shane Stonehouse called the victory Step 1 in a long season. “We’re going to improve and we’ve just got to work our best to become the best team we can possibly be,” he said. GRID BITS … The Raiders’ home opener is Saturday (Aug. 11) when the Langley Rams visit Caledonia Park for a 5 p.m. kickoff. sports@nanaimobulletin.com
