Remembering where you came from Charla Huber News staff

Anyone who’s ever had a child knows how even a healthy newborn can feel overwhelming. But when that new baby is taken to intensive care, the intensity of emotions are almost impossible for most of parents to imagine. For Dustan and Kerri Roberts, it’s an experience they know all too well. Their 17-monthold daughter Abbygail spent her first three months – 155 days – in the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. Having a sick newborn was only half the struggle for the family. They were also mourning the loss of Abbygail’s twin, who passed away eight days after being born. Throughout Abbygail’s stay at the NICU, the staff not only helped care for the child, but they were there for ■ Every her parents too. year, up to “They really helped with 600 babies mental support,” said the spend time in father. the Victoria Last week, the Roberts General brought their daughter back Hospital NICU. to Victoria General Hospital, but this time it was to celebrate. They joined other families who have experienced life in the NICU. The hospital hosted its 28th annual neonatal intensive care reunion party, Aug. 9. All of the parents and grandparents bonded with each other and the hospital staff were able to see their former sick patients thrive. Those staff helped build some wonderful memories for the Roberts family, including Abbygail’s first party. “On her 100th day in the NICU, I came in and Abbygail was wearing a princess crown. They are our milestones, but not normal milestones,” said Kerri. “It’s really great to see everyone again.”

Sherry Buttnor, Metchosin astronomer, encourages the public to come to the Star Party at the Metchosin municipal grounds this weekend Aug. 17 to 19. The event is hosted by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada - VIctoria Chapter.

Theft rates steady but could be lower

Party with the stars Charla Huber News staff

If you can’t travel to Mars, going to this weekend’s Star Party in Metchosin might be the next best thing. Astronomers from across Greater Victoria are gathering at the Metchosin municipal ground for a weekend of gazing at stars, watching solar storms and camping out. The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada-Victoria Chapter hosts the party, which is open to the public. Metchosin astronomer Sherry Buttnor leads a workshop called Astronomy 101 for anyone wanting to learn the basics. She’ll also host a guided telescope walk on Friday night (Aug. 17). During the day, Buttnor said many members will have their telescopes set up to watch magnetic storms on the sun. “It’s absolutely true you are never sup-

posed to look at the sun unless you have the proper equipment. You can do it safely if you know what you are doing,” she said, explaining that she uses a neutral density white light filter on the end of her telescope. Buttnor has been involved in astronomy for 30 years and has even built her own telescopes. In the early mornings, the Andromeda galaxy is one of Buttnor’s favourite sights. “It’s our nearest neighbour. It’s 2.1 million lights years away, but as far as astronomical distances go, it’s right next door,” Buttnor said. “I like to take what I’ve learned and share with others.” Families and children are encouraged to come out and learn about all types of astronomy. “Kids look through the eyepiece and they are wide-eyed at what they see,” Buttnor said.

Saturday afternoon, from 4 to 6 p.m., children’s activities include crafts involving planets and comets as well as face painting. “It’s best if people bring their own telescopes,” Buttnor said. “It doesn’t matter what you’ve got, even if it’s just a drug store telescope, everyone’s welcome.” Throughout the weekend there will be series of workshops and lectures as well as plenty of time to look into the universe. All flashlights must have tape over the end to dim the light. The star party runs from Friday, Aug. 17 at 6 p.m. to Sunday, Aug. 19 at noon. There is no charge to attend the star party, but donations are appreciated. Food and drink is not provided. For more information, go to victoria.rasc.ca/events/StarParty. The Metchosin muncipal grounds is located at 4450 Happy Valley Rd. charla@goldstreamgazette.com

There’s good news and there’s bad news when it comes to thefts from cars on the West Shore. RCMP say the good news is theft from vehicle statistics for July 2012 are only up slightly this year, with 52 reported, compared to around 40 the year before. The bad news is there are still more than 500 thefts from vehicles on the West Shore every year. The best news, say RCMP, is most thefts are preventable. “I don’t think a lot of people realize that someone who is desperate for cash will smash the window on a car or pop a lock for the loose change you keep in plain sight for parking,” Const. Brian Lucas said. “While laptops, purses, wallets, cell phones, tools and GPS units are some of the most popular items taken, the fact is (thieves) will break into your car for a couple of CDs.” By not leaving anything of any value in your car you greatly reduce your chance of getting broken into. Lucas and West Shore RCMP auxiliary constables have been conducting “Lock It or Lose It” campaigns in parks, parking lots and community centres on the West Shore, educating the public about the importance of locking vehicles and making sure nothing of any value is left inside, even for a short period of time. Lucas is also spending time this summer working on the West Shore RCMP’s bike patrol unit, checking parks, parking lots and areas that have been targeted in the past. “We hope that a more visible presence and increased public awareness will have an affect in reducing the number of files of this nature that we deal with,” Lucas said. “But the bottom line is a little more common sense in locking your vehicle and leaving nothing in sight would go a long way toward eliminating this type of crime.” news@goldstreamgazette.com

CRD warned on stalling sewage plan Daniel Palmer News staff

What’s next for sewage treatment

Capital Regional District directors who hinder progress on the upcoming secondary sewage treatment project could face steep fines – even jail time – under new federal regulations. CRD staff presented a report on new Fisheries Act regulations that warns directors if they intentionally do not meet the 2020 deadline for the project, they could be fined up to $500,000 or face two years in prison. “That’s for every individual incident, and each day the violation occurs is a separate incident,” said Denise Blackwell, chair of the CRD’s liquid waste management committee. The federal wastewater regulations, brought into effect last month, identify nearly 400 communities across Canada that are considered high risk for their lack of secondary sewage treatment. They must comply with the regulations by 2020 or face the steep penalties. “The federal government believes we’re their number one target for not meeting

■ Aug. 22 – Sewage committee meeting, where CRD staff will report on site selection for the planned biosolids energy plant. ■ September – An external consultant will begin the search for seven qualified sewage commissioners, and CRD staff will begin meeting with companies interested in putting forward requests for qualifications. ■ November – Newly appointed sewage commission will assume control of the project from the CRD. ■ January to April 2014 – The earliest date to award a company with the design and construction of McLoughlin Point wastewater treatment plant.

these regulations, and that’s why they’re giving us $280 million,” Blackwell said. The federal and provincial governments have agreed to fund two-thirds of the Capital Region’s $782-million project, while the CRD will foot the remainder. Despite the funding, some directors continue to challenge the high risk designation, citing a lack of scientific data. “Virtually every credible marine scientist in the area has said ... there’s not a problem here, this isn’t necessary,” said director Vic Dermon, a Saanich councillor. “The prime minister recently said a

(oil) pipeline should be determined by science. Well, then so should Victoria’s sewage situation.” Critics have also been lobbying the CRD to request an exemption under the regulations and avoid the huge public expenditure. The Association for Responsible and Environmentally Sustainable Sewage Treatment (ARESST) purports the current system of pumping screened sewage into the Strait of Juan de Fuca is environmentally sound. But CRD staff wrote in their report that exemptions to sewage treatment are not pos-

sible, except for northern Canada. Former federal environment minister David Anderson told Black Press that the regulations should be adjusted to allow regions like Greater Victoria the chance to utilize its unique geographical advantages for sewage treatment. “If the federal government decided to have the same snow-removal requirements for Victoria as in Quebec, we would call that ridiculous,” Anderson said. When the CRD passes a bylaw later this month, a process will begin to appoint a panel of seven experts who will run the project. While no CRD directors will sit on the panel, the bylaw will contain explicit language to ensure financial accountability, Blackwell said. “Any changes to the budget in any way, shape or form have to come back to (the CRD).” The panel should be in place by November. Its first task will be to solicit requests for qualifications from interested companies for the McLoughlin Plant design and construction. dpalmer@vicnews.com

Charges of sexual interference laid after kids report pair of incidents Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

Darryl James Thompson, 47, made his first appearance in court last Friday (Aug. 10) after Victoria police arrested the View Royal man in response to reports that three children were inappropriately touched at Esquimalt Recreation Centre. After a pair of incidents were reported late Wednesday, pool staff identified a potential suspect Thursday (Aug. 9) based on a general description. Staff witnessed what they felt was an inappropriate act and called police. The man was removed from the pool area and was arrested around 2 p.m. on Thursday. “Staff identified him, brought

him out of the pool and contacted our people immediately,” said Insp. Keith Lindner of VicPD’s west division, adding he was impressed with staff response. “When they knew he was in the building they called us.” The Thursday incident followed a report Wednesday (Aug. 8) evening after two children told their respective parents that they’d been inappropriately touched while at the Esquimalt pool. Staff followed protocol under the circumstances, said Scott Hartman, Esquimalt director of parks and recreation services. “We’re trained in observing these things. It’s unfortunate that it happens, but all of our staff are trained to respond accordingly around child protection,” he said. “Everyone, because of what happened (Wednesday) night … staff were extra diligent.” The man was not known to police or on the Esquimalt recreation “watch list.” Hartman said the suspect

“When a kid has confidence in his or her mom or dad to go forward and say this is what happened, that’s huge.” – Insp. Keith Lindner was not a rec centre member, but was a member of the Leisure Involvement For Everyone program, which provides discounted access to recreation facilities. Police are not releasing ages of the three children or details of the incidents. “If there are other victims we want to speak to them,” Lindner said. “When a kid has confidence in his or her mom or dad to go forward and say this is what happened, that’s huge … I commend all the parties involved.” Thompson is charged with three counts of sexual interference of a person under the age of 16. He is due back in court on Sept 5. cvanreeuwyk@oakbaynews.com

OUR VIEW

Ask voters if they want an oil pipeline P

erhaps Premier Christy Clark sees a battle with Alberta – over revenue from allowing the Enbridge pipeline to use B.C. to link Alberta oil with tankers on the Pacific Ocean – as the last hope to rally voters in time for the spring 2013 election campaign. But if the Premier is to gain any political currency, her best bet is to give the people of the province the chance to have their voice heard. The B.C. NDP has staked out the pipelineopposition constituency while the B.C. Conservatives have claimed those people who support-it-but-with-conditions. By demanding that B.C. receive royalties from oil profits that flow through the pipeline, Clark is simply catering to those who already support Enbridge’s proposal. Those opposed have said loud and clear it is not about money, but about inevitable environmental damage. Grand Chief Edward John of the First Nations Summit political executive summed it up in a scathing press release, when he said the B.C. Liberal government has missed the mark, stressing “B.C. First Nations’ traditional territories and pristine environment are not for sale.” John reminded Clark of the Supreme Court of Canada’s stance that there is a legal requirement for governments to “consult and accommodate” First Nations regarding any and all land and resource development initiatives in their respective territories. If First Nations cannot be convinced to allow a pipeline to be constructed through their territories the pipeline is simply a non-starter. With Clark’s demand having been rejected by Alberta Premier Alison Redford, and with First Nations still on the sidelines, it would be wise for Clark to add a non-binding referendum question to the May 14, 2013 general election ballot. A simple question – Are you in favour of the Enbridge pipeline proposal? – could give government a mandate for the direction it needs to take on the pipeline proposal. What do you think?

It’s great politics, but it matters little to consumers in an increasingly competitive but heavily taxed business. Another new regulation took effect this summer, creating a $525 fine for adults serving minors, on the job, at home or as a bootlegger. Parents who provide booze for their underage children are exempted. Previously, penalties applied only to licensed establishments. If the issue really is public safety and teen binge drinking, the key job for government is to regulate sales effectively. Once that is done, no justification remains for government liquor sales. tfletcher@blackpress.ca • Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com.

LETTERS Langford Lake not big enough for rowers and summer users A proposal to build a “community rowing facility” on Langford Lake would have rowers on the lake weekends in September and June, and early mornings and late afternoons September though June. This would seriously disrupt the enjoyment of many people using the lake for fishing, swimming, sailing and just floating around on their rafts, tubes and other toys. On weekends in September and June, when it is still quite warm, a rowing lane would cut the lake in half north to south, directly in the path of all the boats from the boat launch and swimmers from one of the two tiny beaches. Early mornings and late afternoons in the fall and spring are prime fishing times, and the long rowing boats would significantly reduce the area where people could fish. Langford Lake is a pretty small lake – too small for an activity such as competitive rowing. The City of Langford is calling it a “community “ rowing club but it’s a joint proposal with a prestigious and epensive private school, St. Michaels’ University. The private school would be paying to build a boathouse, fenced storage, two docks, showers, an office and exercise room –all squeezed in the northwest corner, which, by the way, is parkland. So, what we have here is a proposal to spoil the fun of many for the benefit of an elite group. It’s like putting a private yacht club in a public park, so clearly unfair, how did the idea get this far? Sandy Bell Langford

Government pensions are high compared to common person I have been researching the government pension plan. Members of parliament receive between $157,000 and $314,000 per year. After six years service MPs are entitled to a pension. This is calculated at three per cent, times years of service, multiplied by salary. The average MP pension is $78,000. MPs I am sure believe they deserve the pension. Maybe they might be right, if the government was not planning to raise the eligibility to 67 from 65 to save money. They aren’t right so long as hard working Canadians struggle to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table. If normal people had received between

$157,000 and $314,000 per year, they could have been able to set aside a retirement fund. Instead most of us earn closer to $45,000 and try to raise a family while paying taxes to cover government expenses. I call on Canadians to protest, don’t hold back your opinion. If everyone who felt like me emailed their MP they might take our concerns seriously. Remember silence implies consent. Anyone can sign a petition. The truth is as individuals we can do so little, but as a group we can do a lot. Stephen Nordquist View Royal

Smart meters not getting enough attention as bad idea What will it take to stop the very expensive smart meter “boondoggle”? First, there are the reported extreme increases in monthly billing, in some instances supposedly tripling or more, forcing some families to choose between vital things such as food, transportation or heat. Second, the B.C. Hydro business plan is unrealistic. To my understanding the $1 billion price tag does not include many of the costs associated with this complex wireless grid system and most certainly does not include legal fees incurred from expensive lawsuits. Third, people are complaining of health issues they believe stem from the constant pulses of radio frequency radiation required to keep the mesh network in sync. Some people with pre-existing medical problems say they have seen their conditions worsen and others normally healthy have developed ill symptoms soon after the installation of smart meters. Why are B.C. residents denied the ability to opt out when other provinces and states have ensured this right for their constituents? Fourth, a definite and severe threat to our security through hacking of the wireless smart grid. Unauthorized access to personal information and electrical devices within the home is a real possibility. U.S. experts, including former CIA Director, James Woolsey, say the wireless grid is “stupid” with no way to protect our energy grid against certain cyber attack. Fifth, house fires and damages to appliances after poor installations done by inexperienced workers. How many fires are actually related to smart meters that we don’t know about, and why isn’t the

fire commissioner tracking these events? Hydro and Corix are denying responsibility leaving the individuals to face deductibles, co-insurance, and higher premiums. How is this right? Sixth, bullying, intimidation and threats to B.C. residents, with no consideration of our democratic right to health, security and privacy in our own homes and businesses. Again, what more do government/fire/ health officials need before they stand up and demand an end to this expensive “boondoggle”? Please tell us. Tammy Jeske Langford

Key to cutting down on bad drivers is increased policing Re. “Speed enforcement is needed along Goldstream Avenue,” Aug. 1 Besides the existence of jerks, the reason one of your letter writers gets tailgated on Goldstream Avenue is the refusal of politicians to properly fund policing. Stew Young et al preside over beautiful downtown Langford, complete with music, but do not support adequate policing, in my opinion. Only police feet on the street will identify the deliberately dangerous drivers. (Yes, provincial court changes to put more dangerous drivers in jail for rehabilitation attempts are also needed. Prison economics can be simple – you want to eat you work, just as your victims have to.) Instead we have drunk drivers still on the street and people whose licence was rescinded for zooming around at dangerous speeds. When will voters support better policing by electing officials who actually care about human life? Keith Sketchley Saanich

Users must respect our back country and fellow users This past weekend I was up in the hills after registering with the gate guard and following the rules to access the lake I wanted to fish. After reaching the lake, I found a group of people who were camping on the far side of the lake. For almost an hour while they were breaking camp, they had their ATVs, trail bikes with no mufflers and trucks all running and revving.

When they finally left and it was quiet again, I happened to look over at where they were camping and saw smoke wafting up from a fire they left to smoulder out on its own. After 10 trips from the lake with the bailing bucket of water to the fire they left on the ground (not in a pit or even ringed by stones), the logs were cooled down enough that there wasn’t any chance of a forest fire. On top of this, they left what would amount to three or four large garbage bags of garbage, cans, gun shells and broken glass. After inquiring with the gate guards on our way out, they informed us that the campers had not checked in at the gate and had found a back way to the lake. Acts like this are prime examples of why forest companies close the back country to campers, fishermen and ATVers. If you want to be idiots in the back country, buy your own chunk of land and go hard. But if it’s not yours and you’re trespassing to begin with, then respect the land, keep it clean and usable for other people and do it safely. Mark Fisherman Duncan

Racism can be the only answer for oil embargo on China Racism – an ugly word that makes us cringe, conjures up images of death and brutality. We must root it out, expose it. Even if it turns out to be us, someone must show us and force us to see what we’re doing. What If England, or Australia, New Zealand, or most of Europe, were suffering in poverty, as is most of Asia? To what lengths would we go to provide relief? Would we not build a pipeline, and ship all the oil they needed? Give it freely? Call it a bailout? But it is Asia that needs our help, and we say “China” with barely concealed loathing. And so some of us stand up and cry about mother Earth. Yet every four days Victoria pumps enough raw sewage into the ocean to fill a supertanker. So why try to block a pipeline that would ship oil to China? Racism can be the only answer.

Art on a wire

Coast Collective artist Anne Miller hangs up a couple of her masterworks for the Clothesline Art Show, taking place on the collective’s 11-acre property from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 19.

Unique event asks artists to suspend their work Kyle Wells News staff

Kyle Wells/News staff

What do you think? Art grows on trees? Well, for one day at Coast Collective Art Centre in Colwood, that might appear to be true. The centre’s annual Clothesline Show is Sunday, Aug. 19 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For the event, a host of local artists will hang their works on clotheslines strung from tree to tree throughout the centre’s 11-acre property at 3221 Heatherbell Road. Terri Rodstrom, one of the centre’s directors, expects about 1,200 people to attend the event. But, because the property is so large, it never feels busy. “It’s a real feel-good festival,” Rodstrom said. “It’s not crowded, you gets lots of good, one-onone-time talking to the artists.” The show is non-juried and open to anyone, although preregistration is required. Artists are assigned an area

to string up their work for all to enjoy. There will also be an “acre of pottery,” a section of the grounds where potters will display their wares. “This is an opportunity for other artists that can’t partake in some of the things we do, to be a part of us and to show their work too,” Rodstrom said. Also invited are around a halfdozen animal rescue groups, including the SPCA’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC), that will be on site to talk to visitors about the work the rescue groups do. They will also have some four-legged and winged friends on hand. Local musician Brad Prevedoros will add to the atmosphere of the grounds with the sounds of his acoustic guitar.

Mind your knitting Preparations for 2012 Fibrations festival sewed up Kyle Wells News staff

It’s the only festival in Victoria that’s guaranteed to have you in stitches. This is the second year for the grassroots Fibrations fibre art festival, running Sunday, Aug. 19. It’s a gathering of fibre artists of all types to sell their products, talk shop with enthusiasts and fellow practitioners and give demonstrations illustrating the process behind the craft. Last year’s inaugural event was borne out of the sudden cancellation of the Victoria Fibre Festival. A group of fibre artists quickly stepped up to organize an event to replace it, with little time but lots of enthusiasm. “We had very little time, about a month,” co-organizer and Knotty By Nature fibre arts store co-owner Ryan Davis said. “It was really fun, we just all pulled together, did a bunch of work and made it happen. It went amazingly well. There was just a great amount of excitement about it.” This year’s event is capturing the same spirit, with all the organization done by volunteers and a focus on making it artistfriendly and widely inclusive. Costs for vendors are kept low and all the money raised, aside from money earned by the vendors,

goes right back into the event. “Last year it just had the best vibe in the air. … It was quite special,” Davis said. “A lot of people sold out of their stuff that they brought, so people were very excited about how well they did.” The cost to vendors to participate is a donation of a $35 retail value item that is then put up as a prize at the event in a toonie raffle. The money from the raffle pays for the event. The idea is to keep costs low and participation high so more people, including hobbyist fibre artists, can participate. About 35 vendors took part in last year’s event and this year organizers have already had to cut the registration off at 50 vendors. Davis said that if you can name a fibre art, it will be at the event. Woven, knit, needle-felted and other finished products will be in abundance. This includes practical items such as scarves and hats, but also more creative display works. Supplies will also be plentiful. Wool, knitting yarn and all the other tools of the trade needed for fibre art will be for sale. A couple of local hand-dyed knitting yarn producers will even be there selling products.

taugh him how to use a taught loom about eight years ago and he “took to it.” “It’s very meditative and relaxing and you make beautiful things,” Davis said. There are many reasons people take to fibre art, either producing it or enjoying the outcome. “It’s practical a lot of times. It’s art and it’s wearable at the same time, so that’s kind of nice,” Davis said. “What I love about fibre art is that it has an organic element to it, almost Don Denton/News staff like it’s a combination Ryan Davis, co-owner of Knotty by Nature fibre arts of control and chaos. juggles the details as one of the organizers of Fibrations, Because every fibre a festival celebrating fibre artists. behaves differently and they can interact with Food vendors will also be on-site, includeach other.” ing a merchant who sells knitting needleFibrations takes place in the St. Ann’s shaped chocolate.

We Believe. Go Team Canada. Photo courtesy of Maureen McCann

Maria Manna, left, April Gislason and Maureen Washington are The Ladies of Gospel, who will perform at Hermann’s Jazz Club Aug. 19 as a fundraiser for Mercy Ships Canada.

Lord have mercy Joined voices are manna from heaven for charity Maria Manna, Maureen Washington and April Gislason will rock your soul with classic Soul Train and Motown Gospel in a fundraiser for Mercy Ships Canada this Sunday. Featuring Thomas Kinzel on piano, Joey Smith on bass and Damian Graham on drums, these great ladies of jazz are all accomplished singers and recording artists in their own right, and combined, they create a night to remember. Jazz lovers will delight in listening to these three extraordinary singers together on stage as they create an evening of music featuring some of jazz music’s most classic

ballads and standards. Manna exudes professional confidence and a magnetic charm that is woven into her performances, from swing to ballad and jazz, while Washington combines the sultry soulfulness of Etta James with the jazzpop flair of Holly Cole and Jann Arden. To top the group off, from a powerful ballad to hard-edge rock, Gislason can sing it all. Proceeds from the concert will go to Mercy Ships, which operates hospital ships serving some of the poorest developing nations of the world. The Africa Mercy is the world’s largest non-governmental hospital ship, and is dedicated to the continent of Africa. Mercy Ships programs promote health by empowering developing nations and by meeting the urgent surgical needs of the world’s

forgotten poor. Since 1978, Mercy Ships has performed more than 61,000 lifechanging and life-saving operations such as cleft lip and palate repairs, cataract removals and lens implants, orthopaedic procedures, facial reconstruction and obstetric fistula repairs. It has treated more than 539,000 patients in village clinics and trained 5,770 local health-care teachers. Tickets for the Ladies of Gospel are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Registration deadline is Saturday Aug. 18. Tickets are available online at regimojo.com/registrations/68/ forms or call Hermann’s at 250388-9166. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. For more information on Mercy Ships go to mercyships.ca. llavin@vicnews.com

NICU celebrates 28th reunion Continued from Page A1

Dozens of past NICU patients filled the VGH rooftop with their families, some young patients recently discharged and others in their 20s. But the emotional day is also a special one for the staff. “It’s just so encouraging to see the big kids,” said Dr. Connie Harris, NICU pharmacist. “When we first meet parents in the NICU they are frightened and confused.” The reunion party is a reminder to Harris and other hospital staff about how their tiny patients grow up and lead fulfilling lives. Harris points out it’s tough to see tiny sick babies and this party allows staff to see the positive outcomes. It wasn’t that long ago when Shaylene Evans gave birth to her daughter Aryonna with a birth weight of three pounds, two ounces. “She was three months early,” Evans explained quietly. “I had a lot of bawling sessions.”

Charla Huber/News staff

Dustan and Kerri Roberts brought their daughter to the neonatal intensive care reunion party at Victoria General Hospital, Aug. 9. Baby Abbygail spent her first 155 days in the NICU. The young mother lives in Ladysmith and was able to stay in Victoria to visit her daughter daily through a donation made by the Help Fill a Dream Foundation. She stayed at the Easter Seal House in Victoria and took two buses to the hospital. “I never missed a day,” Evans said. Dealing with a newborn with a collapsed lung and seizures was a lot for the mother, but she said the care

her daughter received from the NICU staff was amazing. While her daughter Aryonna has grown into a healthier 18 pound baby, she lives with a chronic lung disease and needs to use two inhalers everyday. Other than coming to the hospital to celebrate her daugh-

ter’s achievements, Evans also came to help another family. She’s meeting a couple whose baby is currently in the NICU with the same lung disease. Evans came to give them support and share her experiences. No matter how long the stay in the NICU, it’s a tough time for any parent to go through. Robyn Copp’s daughter, Shonagh, spent 11 days in the hospital, after being born six weeks early. Now a happy, healthy nineand-a-half-year-old, she has no recollection of the tough start she had in life. But for her mother, the memories haven’t faded. “It was such a scary time,” recalled Copp, smiling at her daughter beside her. “She was kind of like a half baked cookie.” charla@goldstreamgazette.com

If you have normal vision, you should be able to see objects clearly whether they are near or far away. When your eye doctor examines your eyes he will measure your vision at long distance as well as close up. The measurement for distance vision is usually taken at 20 feet. A test for near vision is usually taken at the normal reading distance or about 16 inches. Near vision is used for reading, sewing, eating and any other activity in which the object you are looking at is within arms length. Intermediate vision includes computer screens, music on a stand, cards on a table etc. Distance vision is considered anything beyond that point. This would include looking at television or at people across the room, even though the distance is relatively short. You need to see clearly wherever you happen to be looking. Straining your eyes to try to see objects clearly can often cause headaches and other discomfort. If you think you may need glasses or contact lenses or a new lens correction, see your family optometrist for an examination.

Nomads ready for Canadian ultimate championships this week

O

verlooking View Street, Dave Pettenuzzo’s office is well-decorated with national and world championship trophies. The trophies belong to the Nomads. This week Pettenuzzo is strapping on the cleats one more time as his team, the reigning world-champion Nomads, is competing in the masters division (over-33) of the Canadian Ultimate Championships, which run Thursday to Sunday on the grounds of Landsdowne middle school, Topaz Park, St. Michaels University School and Royal Athletic Park. The 45-year-old has been playing ultimate Frisbee since 1990, and is a patriarch of the sport not just on his team, but in Victoria. “It’s been a long, long journey for the Nomads,” Pettenuzzo said. Ultimate tournaments allow a maximum of 28 players per roster, and the Nomads always fill the quota, he added. “Some are newer to the team, but most of the guys go way back to the early days in the 1990s. And it’s more than a team. We’ve truly evolved into a lifelong brotherhood.” Pettenuzzo joined the Nomads when he arrived here in 1993 and has since inherited a leading role with the team. He also founded the Victoria Ultimate Players Society, organizers of Victoria’s summer league, and current hosts for this Canadian Ultimate Championships. The tournament is especially big for the Nomads, winners of multiple national and world titles in the open and masters (over-33) divisions. In 1997 the Nomads placed seventh at nationals here in Victoria. The majority of the team pulled double-duty as hosts for that event. They’d like to win it here on their home turf, because if the Nomads have a home, it’s here. “We’re also getting older,” Pettenuzzo said. “When a player retires due to their age, we say ‘they’ve gone to pasture.’ I’ve been thinking about it myself. A few guys have been talking about it.” As a husband and a father to two boys, 12 and 8, it’s never easy for Pettenuzzo and the core of 20-odd teammates to get together for a tournament. But it’s about much more than that, he says. “From the time Dave Martin founded this team in 1990-91, it’s been a tribe mentality,” he said, “a special bond as brothers.”

Shamrocks back to Coquitlam tonight The Victoria Shamrocks came up with a crucial overtime win over the Coquitlam Adanacs on Sunday to even the Western Lacrosse Association semifinal playoff series at two games each. Corey Small scored his fourth and fifth goals of the game in overtime, and Mitch McLaren scored an empty netter as the Rocks won 11-8. It’s the Shamrocks’ first win in Coquitlam this season. Jeff Shattler ended the game with seven assists. The two teams played Game 5 in Victoria on Tuesday. Results were past press time. The Langley Thunder defeated the

Vikes go six for nine at Olympics A bronze medal for long-distance swimmer Richard Weinberger has the UVic Vikes looking sharp after six of its nine current and former athletes medalled at the 2012 Olympic Games. Weinberger placed third in the men's open water 10km marathon swim on Friday (Aug. 10). The 22-year-old finished in one hour, 50 minutes and 0.30 seconds, just 35 seconds back of goldmedal winner Oussama Mellouli (1:49:55.10) from Tunisia. Coincidentally, Mellouli had already won bronze in the men’s 1,500m freestyle, beaten by Vikes silver-medallist Ryan Cochrane. Vikes rowing alumni Doug Csima and Gabe Bergen of the men’s eight, and Darcy Marquardt and Rachelle Viinberg of the women’s eight, all won silver.

Castaway Wanderers player Jack Nyren helped B.C.’s top under-16 team win a national title 15-13 over Ontario. A second U16 team from B.C. won bronze. The finals were played in Sherbrooke, Que., on Sunday. “It’s a pretty great feeling to hold this trophy. This is my third national championship so this is pretty sweet,” Nyren said. B.C. also won the U18 boys title. James Bay’s Crosby Stewart and CW’s Fergus Hall, with coach Jeff Williams of James Bay, defeated the Alberta 40-16 in that final. sports@vicnews.com

Triplets Gerry, left, Myles and Leo Fitzgerald will play for the Victoria Grizzlies in 2012-13. Kyle Wells/News staff Boaz Jospeh/Black Press

Seeing triple Fitzgerald triplets traded to Grizzlies Kyle Wells News staff

They say good things come in threes and that's just what the Victoria Grizzlies are banking on with the Fitzgerald triplets. Identical triplets Myles, Leo and Gerry Fitzgerald all came to the Grizz from the Prince George Spruce Kings in a multiplayer deal that sent David London, Cam Lawson and Coltyn Hansen to Prince George. The move comes as the Grizzlies rebuild under the guidance of new general manager and head coach Bill Bestwick.

“Skill, finesse, heart, talent, determination are foundations and criteria that we take very seriously,” Bestwick said. “When we measure what these three players will bring us individually and collectively, they are three of the best ’93 birthdated players in the entire British Columbia Hockey League.” There were some laughs at the press conference announcing the acquisition as Bestwick, who coached the triplets before with the Nanaimo Clippers in the 2010-11 season, misidentified one of the identical siblings. Leo said that he and his brothers are excited to be joining what they see as the team to beat next season. “(Our team has) lots of speed,

lots of skill, we've got some gritty guys, we've got almost the whole package.” Inevitably, questions arose about the brothers abilities playing together on the ice. They brushed off references to the Sedin twins or if they had any sort of psychic connection to one another. “I get tired of it, but I understand why they ask,” Leo said. “We’re triplets, it’s pretty rare to be playing in Junior A as triplets. I think we’re probably the first.” Training camp for the Grizzlies begins Aug. 20 at Bear Mountain Arena, with an exhibition game at home on Friday, Aug. 24, against the Cowichan Capitals. kwells@goldstreamgazette.com

Stealing a championship Victoria Jr. Mariners baserunner Jesse Mycock makes it safely to second base as Dalton Anderson of the Coquitlam Reds fumbles the ball during the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League playoff game in Whalley on Sunday. Later that day Tanner Hess pitched all seven innings as the Mariners won 7-2 over the Abbotsford Cardinals in the championship final, giving the M’s the provincial title.

Devils ’96 silver at fastpitch nats The Victoria Devils ’96 lost 14-0 in the gold medal game to the Delta Heat in the girls under-16 Canadian fastpitch championships held in Brantford, Ont. on Sunday. Constant rain delays made scheduling difficult for the organizers, but the sun managed to appear for Sunday’s final, a rematch of the Heat’s recent win over the Devils in the U16 provincial final. The Devils had plenty of confidence going into the national final, having defeated the Heat in pool play on Saturday 7-3. But the Heat was too much, chasing pitcher Jasmine Strandlund in the second

inning, and scoring four runs in each of the first and second innings, and then six more in the third inning. Ashley Penney pitched five and two thirds innings with three strikeouts to help the Devils ’96 beat the Mississauga Tigers (Ont.) 4-2 on Sunday morning and qualify for the final. This week the Victoria Devils ’94 team opened the U18 Canadian Championships in Montreal with a pair of wins, 3-2 over the St. Albert Angels (Alta.) on Sunday and an 8-1 drubbing of the Regina Riot (Sask.) on Monday. sports@vicnews.com
