recipient of the proceeds from the inaugural Family Croquet Tournament for YANA sponsored by Enecon Alberta,” said YANA president Judy Cryer. “Christopher Smith and his brand-new bride Wendy put a tremendous amount of thought and work into their first YANA croquet tournament as their way of giving to families in the Comox Valley. We thank Christopher and Wendy and their community partners. We had a lot of fun and look forward to the growth of this fantastic family event in the future.” Christopher said the idea came about after he and Wendy

attended a curling event for charity. Why croquet? “We wanted to find something that was different and everyone could play. This way the smallest kid to the oldest person can all get out there and do something together.” After tying the knot Saturday, the Smiths headed to the Vanier track to set up the course. They packed up around 11 p.m. when the water sprinklers came on. Getting up early Sunday, Christopher was back at the track at 6 a.m. with a riding lawn mower to cut the grass. ... see RING ■ 2

Campaign creating new park

Croquet assists YANA Traditionally, croquet is played on a course with two stakes and nine wickets. Traditionally, newlyweds receive gifts from friends and family. Neither tradition was anywhere to be found Sunday afternoon when, instead of opening presents, Christopher and Wendy Smith opened their hearts to hold a Family Croquet Tournament fundraiser for You Are Not Alone (YANA) on a mini-golf style obstacle course at the Vanier track. Complete proceeds went to YANA, which supports families whose children must travel out of the Comox Valley for medical treatment. After several adventures setting up the course — including a lost wedding ring — friends, family and supporters showed up Sunday (many in costume) to bid on silent auction items, enjoy snacks, then head out to play a fun round of croquet on a course that included challenges such as a water obstacle. The Smiths grew up in the Valley and Christopher runs a business (Enecon Alberta) in Calgary. He said he and Wendy had two visions in arranging the event. “One, we wanted to get married, and two, we wanted to do something for the community. “We have everything already — kids and a house full of stuff — so our vision was to have a wedding and have an event after so that instead of giving wedding gifts you donate to YANA and that would be our gift to the community,” Christopher said. “We are very pleased to be the

The Village of Cumberland has received its first donation toward buying nearby Maple Lake and turning it into a public park, confirms Mayor Leslie Baird. Cumberland council announced the campaign Monday. “Maple Lake has been on our radar for more than 20 years and we are now taking action to preserve it as a public park,” said Baird. “With the co-operation of the owner, Hancock Timber, and support from many community organizations, including the Courtenay Fish and Game Protective Association, the Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial, and the Cumberland Community Forest Society, we hope to purchase these lands to further the conservation of the community’s natural spaces and its biodiversity.” In the coming months, council will consider the appointment of a committee made up of community organization leaders and community members at-large to lead fundraising efforts in the Comox Valley. Council has indicated its intent to Hancock Natural Resource Group, which has agreed to begin negotiations in 2013. Cumberland council’s vision is to connect Maple Lake to the Village’s recreational trail system so that residents and visitors can bike and hike to the lake from the village centre. Its goals are for the lake to be accessible to all, with a future public road and parking area to ensure that everyone can access the lake for fishing and its outstanding recreation opportunities. Donations toward the purchase of the property can be made to the Village of Cumberland. Tax receipts will be issued upon request. Maple Lake is one kilometre northeast of the Cumberland village centre and just west of the Inland Island Highway. The 20-hectare lake is stocked ... see ANGLERS ■ 2

The wet, ringless but undaunted Christopher headed off to buy more gas, and eventually the course was completed. Christopher plans to make the Family Croquet Tournament an annual event. The Smiths thanked the many people who donated to the event and supported YANA. With the tourney behind them they are now off to Cypress on their honeymoon.

“I got on the lawn mower, was halfway through and the sprinklers came back on again. Shot me right in the head. I finished it off in the sprinklers ... shivering and freezing. “As soon as the sprinklers turned on, I took a corner and my brand new, less-than-24-hour wedding ring flew off and I ran it over.” Wendy was philosophical about the loss, saying, “What can you do?” Anyone coming across the ring is asked to contact YANA at 250-871-0343. “It’s in

Currently, there is water-specific regulation of electric motors only for boats on the lake. Ministry reports state that Maple Lake has long been targeted for improved access and facilities by the surrounding communities and angling clubs. It is a key freshwater lake for angler use and could provide an excellent family-oriented fishery. There are a numerous opportunities for shore access sites and walking trails. The lake is surrounded by conifers. The southeastern shore features second-growth forest of western red cedar, western hemlock, Douglas fir and Pacific dogwood. There are sticklebacks in the lake. Hooded mergansers, mallards, and lesser scaup frequent the lake as well as trumpeter swans. From the lake, wetlands drain into Maple Creek, which winds through Village property to the Trent River.

Incident investigated

Local company joins space age Erin Haluschak Record Staff

It was a pretty cool job, and Kevin Boily got to do it. Boily, of AV Commercial Systems/West Coast Home Theatres in Courtenay, said his latest project may by one of his most eye-catching to date — and he has a 30-foot mast to prove it. What was once the shell of a Mercedes Benz Sprinter Van now contains equipment, computers, screens, and a large retracting tower to control unmanned aerial vehicles for civilian uses, thanks to Boily and his colleagues. The van is the Mobile Command and Control Centre for the University of Victoria’s Aerospace Research Program, which designs, uses and tests unmanned aerial aircrafts for applications such as agriculture, search and

rescue, wildlife preservation and more. Boily said he learned of the project about three months ago, and had about two months from start to finish to completely customize the van for the university. “The design was all pretty basic to us, but we spent a lot of hours trying to figure out how to make things fit,” he explained. “The design changed a lot, but we worked hand and hand with the university.” Jenner Richards, manager of the Centre for Aerospace Research at the University of Victoria, told media he was excited that a Vancouver Island company was able to perform the complete retrofit of the van. “We looked at a lot of companies that we thought were capable of doing this and really there weren’t that many,” he said. “One of the well-known ones is

in Florida and there were some places on the mainland that didn’t have a lot of experience. “So when it turned out there was a place locally and close to us we were pretty excited. It’s always nice to be able to spend close to home and to have a closer knit community.” Richards explained unmanned aircraft is the “new dawning of technology when it comes to aero-

space.” “UVic wanted to research as well as apply some of the learning that we do at the university,” he added. He noted there is a lot of potential for developing the technology in Western Canada, and the centre in Victoria has collaborated with other companies on how unmanned vehicles can help out in civilian air space. “They’ve been around a

lot in terms of military drones ... but we want to promote the peaceful uses and a lot of the applications,” Richards said. “Pretty much anything a manned aircraft could be used for, these potentially can be used for as well without endangering life and at a cheaper cost as well.” The van will be based at the Victoria International Airport. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

The RCMP and military police continue to investigate a possible attempted child abduction near CFB Comox. A nine-year-old girl was riding her bicycle from the Glacier Gardens Arena and Recreation Centre on Friday at about 4 p.m. when she was reportedly approached by a blue van. “Have you ever been kidnapped before?” one of two men allegedly asked the girl, who rode home and told her mother what happened. The clean-shaven driver is described as about 50 years old with a scar on his left cheek. He wore jeans and a navy blue T-shirt. The blond-haired passenger had a star tattoo on the left side of his neck with a moustache and a small scar under his lip. He was wearing blue jeans and a black T-shirt. Their vehicle is described as a blue cargo-style Chevrolet Astro Van with windows on the rear doors and panels on the sides.

Disabled man can’t escape his home Erin Haluschak Record Staff

A Comox Valley man confined to his wheelchair cannot leave his house because of lack of access to the Comox Valley Regional District’s handyDART service. Blair Polischuk, who was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and is now a quadriplegic from the degenerative disorder, lives about four kilometres south of Courtenay — near Craigdarroch Beach/north Union Bay, and just shy of the Royston boundary for service. Despite providing service to parts of Royston, Comox, Cumberland, Courtenay and other outlying areas, the CVRD said there simply isn’t enough vehicles to service people outside its defined boundaries. Mike Zbarsky, CVRD’s

manager of transit and sustainability, said operational boundaries are based upon clients, population and amount of vehicles in service. “It’s unfortunate those on the far side of Royston are outside the service boundary, but the service is based on the number of vehicles and the number of clients. We have just enough vehicles to service people within the boundaries,” he explained. Zbarsky added the Comox Valley is quite large and has many rural and agricultural areas, which cannot be serviced like a city or town with a higherdensity population. “It’s not necessarily possible or cost-effective to provide the service,” he explained. “There’s not a fixed route, and it’s more time-consuming to provide

the door-to-door service.” He compared the service to regular transit service — those who live closer to transit stops have better access to the service. “That’s how transit service works; it’s pretty much like that across the province,” he said. But Polischuk, who said he does not want to invest in a wheelchair-accessible vehicle due to his terminal condition and can no longer use regular taxi service, explained it’s unfair to compare regular transit service to that of handyDART. “Unlike the public transit bus system where users can walk to a bus stop, or hitch a ride if far away, handyDART will not allow a user to travel by their own means to a pickup point within a boundary if their residential address falls outside that bound-

ary,” he noted. “In addition, handyDART is based on booking, I believe, 48 hours in advance — buses run at set times regardless of ridership — so really, the public bus should not be used as an analogy with handyDART.” Polischuk said he does not live in a remote area, and the general public transit system does service his area. For Polischuk, the solution is simple: Charge more for the handyDART service for those living outside the boundaries to offset time and expense incurred. “Accessibility is a human right. HandyDART is not meeting the needs of the handicapped community. They, and more importantly, the CVRD need to be held accountable.” photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Pride weekend here Record Staff

Members of Comox Valley Pride are hoping for sunshine as their annual Pride Weekend approaches. This Saturday, Comox Valley Pride will host a dance open to all members of the public. The event has, in past, attracted roughly 150 attendees from the Valley, Port Alberni, Nanaimo and Victoria. Although liquor will be served, board member Deb Field says the annual fundraiser is “youth-inclusive.” Tickets are available at the door and priced on a sliding scale; $10 for adults, $5 for youth. The public is also invited to attend Comox Valley Pride’s 13th annual pride picnic this Sunday at Marina Park in downtown Comox. While beverages will be served, participants are asked to supply their own picnic lunch. Although attendees from Comox Valley Pride will be happy to explain their mandate and discuss GLBTTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, two-spirit and queer) issues, Pride Weekend is primarily an opportunity for local members of the pride community to connect and socialize. As board member Deb Field explains, Comox Valley Pride’s mission is to “unite the Pride community, be visible and celebrate diversity.” In addition to “communicating with government, community and corporations to discuss GLBTTQ related issues and ways to support GLBTTQ people in the community,” Field says that much of what Comox Valley Pride does is organizing events and social activities. She adds that Comox Valley Pride is an especially useful resource for newcomers wanting to get in touch with the pride community. In addition to hosting a monthly social

at Games and Grounds Coffee House in Courtenay, Comox Valley Pride has also held monthly discussion groups this year. To help keep GLBTTQ persons informed about events and activities relevant to their interests, Comox Valley Pride also has an e-mail list through which roughly 160 people receive updates. The non-profit organization hopes government will eventually play a larger part in ensuring LGBTQ persons feel comfortable and socially active in their communities.

There is no program in the Comox Valley specifically for LBGT and questioning youth, and this is a signifiant issue we need to address.

Deb Field As the Valley’s “only formal entity representing the pride community,” Field says Comox Valley Pride is attempting to address a gap in services available to GLBTTQ communities due to a lack of government programs. Comox Valley Pride is especially concerned with the number of resources available to GLBTTQ youth in the Valley. “There is no program in the Comox Valley specifically for LBGT and questioning youth, and this is a significant issue we need to address,” says Field. A study published by Egale Canada, an advocacy organization to advance equality, justice, diversity and education for members of the pride community, confirms the lack of services available to youth suffering the effects of homo- and transphobia. Egale Canada’s executive director Helen Kennedy says

that, “According to the best available statistics, nearly one-third of LGBT do not complete high school as a result of the violence, harassment and isolation they face. These kids hear these taunts up to 75 times a day in school yards, and that’s not OK.” In an effort to provide support unavailable to youth through government programs, Field says Comox Valley Pride has hosted two successful youth events this year at Games and Grounds Coffee House. The gatherings have been an opportunity for kids who “couldn’t go to the usual places to hang out, sing some karaoke … to be themselves and not have to worry about bullying,” says Field. The first five-hour event attracted 18 local youth, and 14 kids showed up to the second; all expressed interest in attending similar events in future. “The kids want more of this,” says Field, who explains that Comox Valley Pride is in the process of making more services available to GLBTTQ kids. They eventually hope to provide a venue whereby youth could easily access information and support, and are raising funds toward a youth centre.

Care-A-Van needs $ often the physical and psychological needs of this population that have not been met and are the precursors to homelessness. Individuals seen aboard the Care-AVan often describe the breakup of a relationship, the loss of employment and then of their housing, the spiralling course through depression and at times addiction that led them eventually to the streets. None of them set out to be there purposely. Given the limited degree of affordable housing in the Valley during the early years of the Care-A-Van, it is often the supportive services offered by the van and fellow agencies that helped some individuals move from a state of absolute homelessness to one of being securely housed. The example of a man for whom an admission to a rehabilitation centre to overcome his alcoholism was facilitated by the Care-A-Van. Once his sobriety established and linked to a skilful mental health and addiction counsellor, the next step was to attend to his dental needs as this was definitely an impediment to finding employment. With much advocacy, the dental work required was done and was followed by obtaining a rewarding job. He is now living in secure market housing and

beams with pride at his accomplishments. His gratitude is tangible as he has broken the cycle of homelessness with appropriate support services. Over the years, 13 pregnant women have been helped via the Care-A-Van, some of them escaping abusive relationships. Without resources of their own, links to family physicians were made, transportation to ultrasounds offered and much more. The strong collaborative work relationship of the Care-A-Van with fellow agencies has been invaluable to the success of the program. The youngest client aboard the van has been a three-yearold accompanied by his mother and the eldest an 86-year-old living alone with numerous health problems. The Comox Bay Care Society hopes the CVRD will recognize this invaluable service for our homeless population and acknowledges that another way out of homelessness is to have strong supportive services in place that can in time lead to adequate and secure housing.

The Care-A-Van of the Comox Bay Care Society eagerly waits to respond to the request for proposals to be issued by the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) for the disbursement of funds to address homelessness. Although undeniably a path out of homelessness must address housing issues, the need for supportive services is just as crucial. The Care-A-Van presents an opportunity for the CVRD to fund a program that epitomizes the notion of contributing to healthy communities particularly for individuals who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness in the Comox Valley. For the past three years, the Care-A-Van and its fleet of 33 volunteer health-care professionals and outreach drivers provided services to over 600 individuals who are living in either absolute homelessness or on the verge of it. These support services are available free of charge to individuals in scattered housing areas in the Valley such as Maple Pool Campground where individuals are often living on the margins of poverty. The Care-A-Van provides healthcare services, dental, optometry and recently has an overwhelming response to their newest program to help quit smoking that not only enhances health but also puts more money in the pockets of those with very limited income. Although the lack of affordable housing is one of the components that contributes to the problem of homelessness, it is all too

Grannies on the road again

Money raised for Emily Record Staff Friday’s fundraiser in honour of Emily Wood raised over $1,300 towards two charities, including one named after her. The Celebration of Life for Emily and husband Shawn Wood happened at the Mex Pub in Courtenay. The money raised will go to the Emily Ann Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society. Wood, née Niinemets, touched the hearts of many in the Comox Valley when she and Shawn Wood reached out to the community to help ensure 24-yearold Emily received her dying wish of a dream wedding to 28-year-old Shawn. Near the end of June, Emily was given three to 12 months to live after she was told treatments were not working on the aggressive large-cell lymphoma cancer she was diagnosed with early in the year. The couple were short on cash for a wedding, and the community responded by donating goods, services, and cash to help make Emily’s dream come true. They were married on July 3 and although she was given much longer to live, Emily passed away a short 10 days after the couple’s wedding. Shawn, who is entering the fourth

year of his business degree in September, decided to create the Emily Ann Foundation in memory of his wife. He noted he planned to help other people in situations similar to Emily’s and specifically, he wanted to help others with dying wishes but who may not qualify for other charities. “We looked into lots of programs, like Make a Wish and those kind of programs, and there’s a lot of paperwork and there’s a lot of time it takes for them to start helping and, you know, when those people are in dire straits I just want to be able to go, ‘We’re here, we

got you, let’s do it,’ you know, make that wish happen whatever it may be,” Shawn told the Record when he announced the charity in mid-July. “That’s the kind of things I want to help with is when people have no one else to go to. I promised I’d keep fighting for her.” Friday’s fundraiser at the Mex featured musicians including Pamela Tessmann, Cottonmouth Jones, Braeden Marshal, the Lorne Rangers and DJ DeToks. Admission was by donation and there was also a raffle for a gift basket valued at $600 and various other fundraising initiatives throughout the evening.

Thirty Vancouver Island grandmothers join together once again to cycle from Campbell River to Victoria to raise funds for African grandmothers who are faced with the unimaginable task of burying their own children and then raising their HIV/ AIDS-orphaned grandchildren. Joining the group this year from Sept. 7 to 9 are five Comox Valley residents representing the Merville Grand Mothers and the Glacier Grans in Comox — Sue Taylor, Monika Terfloth, Sally Gellard, Barb Fudge, and Jen Bowlby. In five years, cycling Island grandmothers have raised over $200,000. This year the goal is to bring the total to $250,000, and every penny goes to the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. Cyclists pay all their own expenses and all contributions go directly to the SLF. In Courtenay, the group will stop for lunch provided by the Denman Island Grandmothers at Riverside Park across from the Filberg Centre. The cycling event has a wonderful spirit of ubuntu — taking care of each other. Gellard, one of last year’s cyclists and returning in 2012, said, “This is much more than a bike ride. Heading south down our bounti-

ful Island, we are met along the way with cheers, chocolates and refreshments provided by several community SLF Grandmother groups. “There is a strong spirit of solidarity, not only with each other but especially with the Grandmothers of Africa. That’s who I think of as we climb those gut-wrenching hills.” The Stephen Lewis Foundation provides funding for over 300

community projects in 15 sub-Saharan African countries. Canadian grandmothers coast to coast have contributed more than $13.5 million to this campaign in only six years. ($1 for every AIDS orphan in Africa.) To learn more, or to Anytime is Prime Time

Sea cadets educated While at HMCS Quadra, they make forays to Vancouver and Victoria

THE KUMUGWE DANCERS will perform at the CVEx opening ceremony this Friday at 4 p.m.

Large cast for opening ceremony Resuming for its 138th year this weekend, the Comox Valley Exhibition will feature a talented lineup of performers, along with fun-filled, family-oriented activities and entertainment for everyone to enjoy over three days. The opening ceremony will begin Friday at 4 p.m. at the main stage, sponsored by Island Honda and Black Creek Farm & Feed. MCeeing will be CVEx director Bob McQuillan, who will welcome and introduce several dignitaries to the stage for speeches. These guests will include Mayor Larry Jangula of Courtenay, Mayor Leslie Baird of Cumberland, Mayor Paul Ives of Comox, Comox Valley Regional District chair Edwin Grieve, Comox Valley MLA and Minister of Agriculture Don McRae and Leah Hryko, president of BC Fairs. Following the speeches, the Kumug-

we Dancers will take the stage. Through song and dance, the dancers weave the stories of their people and beliefs. Their oral history traditions preserve their ancient knowledge while passing on their knowledge to new generations. Helen Austin, Vancouver Island Music Awards’ Female Songwriter and Artist of the Year, will then perform her songs full with clever hooks, witty phrases, and beautiful vocals. Set to MC the CVEx once again this year, Austin emits a comfortable and natural ease on stage while keeping it simple with her acoustic guitar and her voice as the foundation for every song. Taking a small break from the musical entertainment, Keith Currie, president of CVEx and director of BC Fairs, will announce the CVEx Awards. The Comox Valley Exhibition is also pleased to provide a

scholarship in partnership with the Rotary Club Of Strathcona Sunrise, Home Depot and West Coast Amusements. The scholarship of $1,000 will be administered by the CVEx Scholarship Committee and will also be announced at this time. To put a close to the opening ceremony, 14-year-old singer/ songwriter Keisja Cox will perform. Cox has written several songs that show both social awareness and compassion for situations like domestic violence and bullying. Her song Purple Ribbon speaks out about finding safe places in your community, and

her song W.I.T.S discusses how to deal with bullies. Be sure to check the website (www.cvex. ca) for the full list of features from Aug. 24 to 26. The CVEx will have many interesting things to do and see around the Courtenay Exhibition Grounds at 4835 Headquarters Rd. The home and garden show has been expanded, there are more horse events, Wagz World of Dogs is having some sheep trials and other new demonstrations. There’s a tea house for seniors to rest in a shaded area, sit and have tea and crumpets. — Comox Valley Exhibition

Each summer a number of sea cadets from overseas visit and train aboard HMCS Quadra, the Cadet Summer Training Centre at Goose Spit. To learn about local aspects of their naval heritage, five British sea cadets and one Royal Marine cadet visited the churchyard of St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Comox, to learn about the five British naval graves. Along with their escort officer, Lieutenant Commander Alan Thomas RNR of Neath, Wales, and local members of the Comox Valley Branch of the Royal Canadian Naval Association, the cadets spent time learning about the four Royal Navy sailors and one Royal Marine buried in Comox. These British servicemen died while on active duty from 1896 to 1910, the year the Royal Canadian Navy

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR E-MAIL TO: letters@comoxvalleyrecord.com

was created. The Royal Navy was very prominent along the west coast of Canada during the years before and for many years after British Columbia joined the Canadian Confederation. Besides its duty as defence, the Royal Navy conducted many detailed navigational surveys of this coast; it named many geographical features and brought the first settlers to the Comox Valley. The members of the British sea cadet contingent placed poppies and Royal Navy white ensign flags on the graves. A short memorial service was conducted and the Rector of St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Rev. Jim Lister, read the naval prayer. The Comox Valley Branch of the Royal Canadian Naval Asso-

ciation helps maintain the graves. An information sign arranged by the Comox Archives and Museum Society of the five British servicemen is near the graves and provided details about their lives. As part of the 32-member international sea cadet exchange, the British cadets enjoyed various sea cadet activities within the Comox Valley and aboard HMCS Quadra. The international sea cadet exchange also spent time in Victoria and Vancouver before returning home. A highlight of their time in Canada was their participation in the unique sea cadet Ceremony of the Flags at the BC legislative grounds in Victoria. — Comox Valley Branch, Royal Canadian Naval Association

Ill Tone EP previews new album Jasmin Parkin of Mother Mother, Kyprios perform on EP being released Aug. 31

DISCOVER ART SATURDAYS Volunteer Rosemary Lapenskie is sharing her love of art on Discover Art Saturdays at the Comox Valley Art Gallery. Sessions will be held Oct. 6, Oct. 27 and Dec. 8.

On Aug. 31, Ill Tone will release Hope? EP, a foursong preview of his coming full-length debut album. The EP by the former Comox Valley resident features Jasmin Parkin of Mother Mother, Kyprios, Skryptcha of Obese Records (AUS), and a handful of other talented vocalists/ musicians. This project will be available at illtone.bandcamp. com and listeners will be able to name their own price. The EP is a collection of well-written lyrics over catchy, boom bap beats with some pop influence. Expect lots of live instrumentation, in addition to skilful record cuts by Ill Tone’s DJ, DJ Optimus Prime. Since his last release, Dirty Old Mixtape, Ill Tone has had the opportunity to open for Tha Alkaholiks, Jeru the Damaja, The Boom Booms, and very recently, Talib Kweli. He’s been busy crafting this project, as well as the full-length album, which

will follow in early 2013. The lyrics on the album, for the most part, are centred around remaining hopeful through dark times of drug use and personal struggle, although he doesn’t hesitate to touch on the subjects of nature, politics, and performing live under sub-par circumstances! If you like Hope? EP, you will love the album Bringin’ the Hope Back. If you’d like to hear some of Ill Tone’s previously released music, visit www. I L LT O N E M U S I C. c o m .

Filberg Festival joyfully celebrates 30th anniversary Fundraising raffle raises $13,000 to maintain the premises

It was another great year for the Filberg Festival as far as producer Susan Lewis is concerned. When I spoke to her two days after the last vendor and visitor left, Lewis and crew were still cleaning up from the four-day bash over the August long weekend. “It’s a lot of work to take everything down,” says Lewis. “Especially since we work very hard to return the park to the way it was before the festival.” This was the event’s 30th anniversary and to celebrate the occasion, Filberg Festival shopping bags were given to the first 300 people through the gates each day and 300 vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with sprinkles on top were served each afternoon at 3 p.m. “It was a fun way to celebrate with people at the festival and the cupcakes were especially well received,” says Lewis. Although exact numbers of people attending the festival wasn’t available, Lewis says everyone was happy with the crowd concentration. The visitor break down is typically 40 per cent Comox Valley residents, 10 per cent from the midIsland and Campbell River north with a large crowd from Victoria and about five per cent coming from other parts of B.C. and elsewhere. “We were competing with the Olympics this year and some afternoons were pretty warm,” says Lewis.

Back to School THE FILBERG FESTIVAL had some big crowds in the shade of its mainstage, seen here, and the smaller Garden Stage down by the water. PHOTO BY SCOTT STANFIELD “But people are always surprised at how cool the park is once they get there. Being right on the water and having all those big old trees creates a really pleasant atmosphere even on hot days.” Artisans came from as far away as Ontario and Quebec to showcase and sell their wares. “Approximately 25 per cent of the 130 juried artisans were new this year, which makes for a nice change,” notes Lewis. “As well as crafts and food the music continues to be a big draw,” she adds. “Our entertainment director, Bobbie Blue, always puts together a great music lineup. And the entrance fee is very reasonable considering that it includes music on two stages in a gorgeous setting.” The fundraising raffle raised $13,000 with all proceeds going to the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association. “They’re in the midst

of a very aggressive five-year maintenance program required to upkeep and maintain the 4,000-square-foot lodge,” explains Lewis. This is the second year that Lewis’ Qualicum-based company, Lewis and Sears Marketing and Event Management, has produced the festival. The complex and carefully orchestrated event is put together by a team

of more than 300 volunteers and fewer than 20 staff. A small but significant change this year was opening the festival an hour earlier and closing earlier each day. “Everyone was really happy with the new hours,” says Lewis. “We’re taking feedback now and will definitely do some tweaking next year as we try to come

Hatch best on beach in Canada Earle Couper Record Staff

Maverick Hatch of Comox and Sam Schachter of Richmond Hill are the new men’s Canadian beach volleyball champions. Sunday at the 2012 Volleyball Canada Beach Nationals at Spanish Banks Beach in Vancouver, Hatch and Schachter edged Chaim Schalk of Red Deer and

Matt Zbyszewski of Toronto 19-21, 21-16, 18-16. In the bronze medal match, Christian Redmann of Toronto and Ben Saxton of Calgary defeated Sam Pedlow of Barrie and Grant O’Gorman of Toronto 21-15, 21-19. It was the second notable pairing of a Comox athlete and a Richmond Hill athlete in the past few weeks. Martin Reader of Comox

and Josh Binstock of Richmond Hill were in London, England recently for the 2012 Summer Olympics. Hatch and Schachter dropped only one match early in the tournament before winning two straight elimination matches en route to the final. Last year, Hatch and Schachter also made the final at nationals, settling for silver. Only days after return-

ing from London, Binstock also participated in the tournament minus his Olympics playing partner Reader, who was resting an elbow injury picked up in London. Binstock and nationals partner Steve Gotch won their first match, before losing their next two; eliminating them from the tournament. sports@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Monster Mile returns to challenge BC Cup racers

THE MONSTER MILE returns to the mountain as part of the BC Cup championships. PHOTO BY MOUNT WASHINGTON ALPINE RESORT

The BC Cup Provincial Championships return to Mount Washington Aug. 24-26. The big announcement for the race this season- Monster Mile returns! The Mile, one of the most challenging downhill mountain bike trails on the circuit, is back after a twoyear hiatus. “Obviously, we’re stoked to reopen Monster Mile for the Provincial Champs,” explains Bike Park manager Mike Manara. “We know the DH racers love that course so it will be big news in the racing community and shows our commitment to our Bike Park operations.” The double-black diamond Monster Mile lives up to its name. Long, demanding and strikingly old school, it’s the kind of trail that creates legends and breaks champions. The Mile is notorious in the race community and the only reason it was held back for two years was snow. After receiving three massive snow seasons in a row, the Monster Mile was literally still buried in snow as late as August when BC Cup events were happening at the mountain. With warmer than aver-

Five locals at BC Juvenile golf championships

British Columbia Golf’s Juvenile Boys’ and Girls’ Championship is on this week (Aug. 21-23) at Princeton Golf Club. Featuring fairways lined with Ponderosa Pines, Princeton Golf Club will play as a par-73 5,643yard course for the Girls’ Championship compared to a par-72 6,506-yard course for the Boys’ Championship. Defending his 2011 Boys’ title against a hungry field of challengers will be Trevor Yu of Vancouver. Yu recently captured the Canadian

age weather over the last month and hard work by the Mount Washington trail crew, the Mile will reopen once again. It opened for a sneak peek this past, closes again midweek then reopens for training runs and the BC Cup Provincial Championships from Aug.

The double❝ black diamond Monster Mile lives up to its name. Long, demanding and strikingly old school, it’s the kind of trail that creates legends and breaks champions.

24-26. Mount Washington Alpine Resort and Cycling BC are partnering once again to bring B.C.’s best racers to Vancouver Island. The BC Cup race series incorporates both downhill and cross-country disciplines of mountain biking. The events begin Saturday, Aug. 25 with the cross-country races and end Sunday, Aug. 26 with the speed and thrills of the

Juvenile Boys’ Championship in a record setting fashion. Five Comox Valley golfers are entered: Nick Crookall, Matthew Irvine, Spencer McDougall, Dylan Slater and Tyson Slater. Also set to challenge Yu are 2012 CN Future Links Pacific champion Zach Anderson of Nanaimo, 2012 BC Summer Games silver medalist Diego San Pedro of Richmond and third-place finisher at the 2012 B.C. Junior Boys’ Championship Chris Crisologo of Richmond. In the Girls’ Championship, Alix Kong will not be defending her 2011

downhill. Even with BC’s best XC and DH riders in attendance, you don’t need to be a pro to experience what Mount Washington’s BC Cup is all about. “We like to support our local racers and give them a chance to race at higher profile events like the BC Cup. There is a Citizen class for amateur riders looking to test their skills on our XC loop and Monster Mile,” Manara said. Categories for the BC Cup are wide-ranging, where competitors race from as early as 10 years of age in the U15 category to over 50 years of age in the venerable Masters category. If you’re not a racer but love to volunteer at great events, the mountain could use a hand. Volunteers are needed to help the races run smoothly and the the best part is you get frontrow seat of the racers in action. For all race information including course maps, racing fees, schedules, volunteering and everything else you need to know about the BC Cup at Mount Washington, head to mountwashington.ca.

title, leaving the way for the likes of Maple Ridge’s Keanna Mason, Surrey’s Michelle Kim, Victoria’s Naomi Ko and Richmond’s Janet Zhang to take the title. There are no local girls golfers entered. Both the Boys’ and Girls’ Championships will be 54-hole stroke play competitions. The Boys’ features a cut to the low 60 players and ties following 36 holes. Due to a limited field, no cut will occur after 36 holes for the Girls’. During rounds one and two, the zone and club team competitions will be contested.

Swimmers qualify for Provincial championships For the first time ever the Vancouver Island Regional Championship Swim Meet was held in Courtenay at the Aquatic Centre and by all accounts it was a huge success. This was the final meet of the summer swim season and only the top three qualified for the Provincial meet to be held in Nanaimo. “Needless to say, in keeping with the Olympics, every swimmer’s goal was a podium finish,” an event spokesperson said. “It was nail biting at times and exhilarating to watch these young swimmers give it their all. “The Blue Devils Summer Swim Club would like to thank coaches, parents, swimmers and the following businesses – Home and Garden Gate, Home Depot, Roots Salon, Starbucks, Rocky Mountain Café, Atlas Café, Whale’s Tales, Laughing Oyster Book Store, Wal-Mart, Canadian Superstore, Win-

The first round of the Komoux Masters Real Baseball League playoffs go Sunday, Aug. 26 at Highland Field #3 in Comox. Leading off at 9 a.m. is the Williams Construction Nationals against Happy’s Source for Sports Indians. At 12:30 p.m. the Brian McLean Yankees take on the Dundee Giants, then at 4:30 p.m. the Investors Group Astros meet the Courtenay Plumbing Twins. Admission is free, but KMRBL organizers note seating is limited. “Get there early!” is their advice to ball fans.

Bikinis and boats added extra excitement to Saturday night racing at Saratoga Speedway. Megan Bergsma of Campbell River beat 11 other beautiful contests to win the fourth annual Bikini Contest, taking home $1,000. Julia Doknjas, also out of Campbell River, was the second runnerup taking home $250 and Chelsea Brennan of Courtenay was the first runner-up taking home $500. #9 Troy Ordano managed to survive the second boat race of the season to win his first ever Crash to Pass Boat Race. #40 Cam Edward finished a very close second. The Hornet cars, Crash to Pass cars, Roadrunners, Figure 8s and the Island Mini Stocks were also on the card. Twenty-four Hornet cars took to the track. #05 Trevor Cannon won the C dash, #12 Raymond Fortier won the B, and the A went to #09 Cameron Phillips. Fortier continued his winning ways into the C heat, winning his first ever heat race. #98 Nigel Neufeld won the B heat, with the A going to #08 Daryn Cahill. Daryn and Daryl Cahill were in a heated battle in the 30-lap feature race. Daryl and Daryn swapped leads four times throughout the first 25 laps. #01 Kevin Lawrenuk caught up to Daryn on lap 25 to take second, but #02 Daryl Cahill was too much, taking yet another main event win. In the B division, #81 Jeremy Stormo took the win with second going to #10 Andrew Buchanan and third to #64 MacLaren Inglis. #59 Ted Dimitrov had a great night in

Slo-pitch The 19th annual Courtenay Legion Bob Pearce Memorial Senior Slo-Pitch Tournament will be held Sept. 1-3 at Lewis Park. Ball fans are invited to come out to the park and enjoy the action.

LOCAL CAPOEIRA STUDENTS took part in a variety of events recently.

Local talent on display Axé Comox Valley has been growing and will be in its fourth year of operation this fall. The group recently brought Contra-Mestre Coruja to give workshops in Capoeira. Over 30 local students, two Mexican students and instructor Barril from Poland all participated. “One of the most exciting things about Capoeira is the fact that it acts as a universal language and exposes students to different cultures, different language, music and history,” a spokesperson said. The Axé Capoeira Comox Valley Martial Arts team recently participated in a first-class international Capoeira event and 30-year anniversary of the Group Axé Capoeira in Vancouver. The event consisted of a week of workshops, rodas (sparring), an open press conference with masters and professors from around the world, demonstrations, an international Capoeira competition and a block party showcasing the music and dance from the Brazilian culture. Students Jonathan Blancas, Amelia Wojtalik, Nula Power, Birgit Power, Knute Hardin, Erika Hardin, Erik Hardin, Wren Wilson, Eloy Diaz Fennell, Jacqueline Blancas, Jona-

Kitty Cat P.A.L. Society Fall Fair Volunteers Kitty Cat PAL Society has a contract with the Comox Valley Exhibition (Fall Fair) to collect money from Fair attendees for admission and parking. This is a great fund-raising opportunity for our organization! Shifts are 3 to 4 hours long (morning, afternoon, or evening). The booths are covered and seating is provided. Each volunteer receives a day pass to visit the many attractions of the Fair. Adoptions Photographer You would be in charge of our adoptions website on Petfinder. com. You would take photographs of kittens ready for adoption and upload them onto Petfinder.com, adding a profile with a few tidbits of info. Standard template available. The challenge is getting to the Adopt-a-PAL events on the weekends to get the photos, keeping track of the kittens you have photographed, and deleting profiles that have been adopted. Weekly email contact is needed to find out who has been adopted. Foster Home Open your home to rescued kittens! Your household’s job is to socialize (get them used to living inside with humans and other pets) between one and eight kittens until they are adopted. Everyone in the household must be onside with this task as the kittens must feel safe and welcome. The first 2 weeks should be spent in a smaller room ie. a bathroom or study, and then they can explore the rest of the house bit by bit. Supplies provided. Adoptions Counsellor Attend Adopt-a-PAL events on the weekends on a rotation with other volunteers. Some setup & take-down of cages is required. Work with others to organize, monitor and care for kittens. Answer questions from the public. Have the confidence to offer Adoption Applications to interested people, and give instructions on the adoption process (some training provided.) Own transportation. Communication skills. Food Pick up Volunteer would assist in picking up food donations at specific locations in the Comox Valley. Does require someone with a good back as some of the bags are large.

Edmund Kaupe July 7, 1986 to August 10, 2012 Viola Mary Skapski (nee Shann) July 3, 1914 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; August 9, 2012 Slipped quietly away on a beautiful sunny afternoon to the melody of a Beethoven Concerto. Raised in England but adopted Richmond, BC in 1953 and the Comox Valley in 1992. Widely traveled, she led a fascinating life, lived in many places, and witnessed exciting changes over her near century. Viola was one of a kind; a free spirit, unique, literate, loving, generous, honest, vibrant, intelligent, lively, interesting, and always ready for adventure. Those who met her didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget her. She never lost the ability to view each new day as though through the eyes of a child; always observing something new. She marveled at nature, loved music, travel, babies, books, long ďŹ&#x201A;owing skirts, bright colours, big necklaces, and hats, but most of all her family; knitting outďŹ ts for every new baby. Viola loved choral singing in several choirs, including the North Island Choral Society, until well into her 90s, was a member of the Naturalists Society and a regular in the libraries and book stores in the valley. She was a familiar sight cruising along the side of the streets of Courtenay on her scooter; her freedom. Viola was predeceased by daughter Isabella (1958), husband Kornel (1990), and brother Nevill (2011). Lovingly remembered by her family; children, John (Dianne), Bo (Sandra), Rich (Bev), Vanda Lemmon (Paul), SoďŹ e, Eveline Power (Derek) and stepson Jan, as well as 13 grandchildren and their spouses plus 10.8 great-grandchildren, cherished sister, Hebe Welbourn, and extended members overseas. Please join us in celebration of Violaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 98 years in this world at 2pm on August 25 at Comox United Church, 250 Beach Avenue, Comox. The memorial tribute will be followed by refreshments in the church hall.

Greengrass, Frederick Charles August 6, 1930-August 5, 2012 Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, educated Lord Roberts School in Winnipeg grade 9. Went to work in Winnipeg Esquire Restaurant, Dry Cleaning Company, Furrier in Peck Building and to Board of Grain Commission, Grain Exchange Building. Joined Royal Canadian Navy (HMCS Chippewa) September 10, 1948 and arrived in Esquimalt for my first five years.

August 10, 2012 - Today the physical world lost a golden heart. In memory of my husband and my best friend, Edmund Kaupe, I will miss you, never forget you, and know you're always here with me. I love you forever and always. His final weeks and days, Edmund was surrounded by family and friends that he had touched in more than a little way. He is survived by his loving wife Saskia, his parents Vera & Detlef Recktenwald and Lisa & Jim Rice, as well as his siblings Nadja Recktenwald and James Rice and Carley Rice, and special friends Andrew, Terry, Claudia, Jennifer & Kyle, Simon, Libby & Chris, Karen & Andy, Doctor Guenter Klein.

STEVEN DALEY PEARCE It is with great sadness that the family of Steven Daley Pearce say their final earthly goodbye to a wonderful Son, Brother, Father, Husband & Step-Father. Steve fought a decades long battle with cancer, moving on to The Lord on Monday, August 13th 2012. At heart, Steve was a cowboy, from his early years on the family farm in Ontario. Horses were his first love until he found motorcycles. After getting his Motorcycle Mechanicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license, Steve lived worked and raced as â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Wheely King.â&#x20AC;? Fate took a hand and sent him to Esso, where during a prestigious career as Lubrication Specialist & Chemist, Steve received accolades and awards for his innovation and inventions. Leaving Esso, but staying with his field of expertise, Steve partnered with Ross Gilley to form â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lakeland Oilâ&#x20AC;? and enjoyed many happy successful years in the Okanagan before moving on. Steve was a key operative in U.S. Banksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Petroleum Software Division â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adventâ&#x20AC;? as their sole Canadian representative until the sale of the company. After a move to Vancouver Island, Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life changed once more with a new marriage and a job with Enex fuels, where he made countless contacts and forged many firm friendships. Steve was a Champion Shotgun Shooter and an active member of the Single Action Shooting Society spending countless happy hours with Caribou Lefty, Sodbuster, Too Dusty, Too Slim, Too Thirsty and all the other Posse Tooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. He cherished his time with all. A great friend, a hard worker, a man of his word and a man of The Lord, Steve was the guy ready with a smile, a handshake, and a helping hand. Left to mourn the huge hole he leaves in their lives, are his Mother, Marlene Pearce, his siblings : Sandra Styrna, Sheila Rodger (Malcolm), Sharon Foofat (Jules),Stuart (Kathy) Pearce, and all his beloved nieces and nephews, every one his special favourite. Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children (by wife Cathy Ryan) were his most treasured possession. Son Sean Pearce, wife Emily and only grandchild Liam, Son Ryan Pearce, Daughter Stephanie (â&#x20AC;&#x153;special baby girlâ&#x20AC;?) and husband Jeff Gibson will live forever in his heavenly heart. Patricia (Pepper) Pearce, Stepdaughter Althea Rose, & Tucker the Schoodle are thankful for the 3 ½ all too short years we shared together in our little home by the beach. A funeral for Steven will be held at Parksville Fellowship Baptist Church, 550 Pym St. Parksville, B.C. on Friday August 24th at 2:00 pm. A light tea will follow at which time we invite and encourage any and every one to share memories. In lieu of flowers, please choose a 3rd world charity as was Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish to spread sunshine in dark corners.

** A very special thank you to our family Physician, Dr. Robert Macarri for his unfailing support and compassion during troubled times. We would also like to thank the many caring hands that treated Steve during his months at Vancouver General Hospital and in particular the wonderful team at 8th ďŹ&#x201A;oor Step down unit .**

Edmund Kaupe July 7, 1986 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; August 10, 2012 Edmund passed away in Comox, BC after a courageous battle against cancer. Throughout his illness he remained a vibrant, positive and loving young man who embraced life and those he loved. Edmund is predeceased by his mother, Linda and his Oma and Opa Maier, Elsa and Edmund. He is survived and will be dearly missed by many, including his wife(name withheld by request), his sister, Christel (Lloyd); his nephew and niece, Levi and Avery; his father, Helmut as well as aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Edmund was born in Comox and resided in Black Creek for the majority of his life. Growing up on the family homestead served as a daily adventure and well suited Edmund's desire to explore and keep busy. Edmund had an abundance of talent and boundless energy that he put to use in everything he did. His interests were numerous and none was more noteworthy than his love and aptitude for music. It was a special gift which he shared with many. He was open, caring, and compassionate by nature and in his 26 years he built a vast number of relationships, all of which had meaning in his life. The joy and love that Edmund shared with others have been a blessing and he will be forever loved and remembered in the hearts of those who knew him. A public memorial service for Edmund will be held on Saturday, August 25 at 2 pm at Bethany Lutheran Church (201 Birch St) in Campbell River. A time of fellowship and refreshments will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Josephine Mae Donaldson Josephine Mae Donaldson (nee Bell), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Josieâ&#x20AC;?, 86, of Comox, British Columbia, passed away suddenly on August 16, 2012. A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m, Friday, August 24, 2012 at Piercyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mount Washington Funeral Home at 440 England Ave., Courtenay. Josie was born in Bowsman, Manitoba, on July 18, 1926. She graduated as a Registered Nurse from Dauphin General Hospital in May 1947 and went to have a successful career as a nurse in Flin Flon, Manitoba. She met and married the first love of her life, Don Donaldson, on June 21, 1950, in Flin Flon. Josie and Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marriage was filled with their love and devotion to one another, raising their children, enjoying their many close friends, and tending to their businesses in Flin Flon. Josie and Don moved to the Comox Valley in 1983 where they made many more friends and quickly grew to love their new community. Their children, Miles and Patti, and their spouses followed. Josie and Don couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been happier to have their children so close. Josie was devastated by Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death in December 1992. Josie was just too special to be alone for long and several years later she and old family friend, Howard Nichol, realized that life had given them a second chance to love deeply and be loved deeply in return. Josie and Howard were together for 17 years. They thoroughly enjoyed travelling, Howard holding Josieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hand the whole way. Howard was with Josie at the moment of her passing on an Alaskan cruise. Josie is survived by Howard; her children, Miles (Elaine) Donaldson, and Patti (David) Korven; and her many nieces and nephews. In addition to Don, Josie is preceded in death by her first son, Joseph, who died as an infant; her parents, Kate and Charlie Bell; her brother Malcolm (Gwen) Bell; and her sister, Doreen (Keith) Armstrong. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, Aug. 24 at 2:00 pm at Piercyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mount Washington Home. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be given to the Diabetes Association or to a charity of your choice.

LOST AND FOUND

~ IN MEMORY~ Eric Munroe Oct. 8, 1937Aug 16,2007 Little did we know that morning God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same But as God calls us one by one the chain will link again.

Tap into power of the pond

— but oh so true — analogy of frogs in a pond as the basis for these networking techniques helps people relax and let go of their fear of walking into a room with the hope of making new business connections. “Work the Pond author Darcy Rezac firmly believes that positive networking can do much more than help you succeed; it can help you become a better, more giving person, a person who makes a real contribution to society and those around you,” concludes Perrin. “I look forward to sharing some of his tips and techniques in what is certain to be an informative and fun series of workshops.” The Work the Pond

breakfasts are being sponsored by Daryl Robbins, CGA and Notary Public. Robbins will spend five minutes talking about the financial planning and tax preparation services he and his associates provide and give a brief synopsis of his role as a Notary Public in the Comox Valley. For more about him visit www.darylrobbins.ca. A bonus Sept. 13 will be a five-minute presentation by the organizers of the North Island College’s FLAVOUR: The North Island’s Gourmet Picnic.

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce wants to help local business people leapfrog their way to networking success this fall. The Chamber has planned a series of two networking breakfasts based on the best-selling book by Darcy Rezac: Work the Pond—Use the Power of Positive Networking to Leap Forward in Work and Life. The workshops will be held Sept. 13 and 27 from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the White Spot Restaurant at 2299 Cliffe Ave. in Courtenay. “We presented this topic at a luncheon last spring and received rave reviews on the presentation and content,” says Chamber president and CEO, Dianne Hawkins. “Based on that feedback, we decided to expand the program and another opportunity for people to learn more Work the Pond networking techniques. The two 45-minute workshops will be facilitated by our marketing and communications coordinator, Terri Perrin.” Perrin, an award winning writer, joined the Chamber last April, bringing a wealth of marketing and business expertise to the team. As a selfemployed small business owner for more than two decades, Perrin has done more than her fair share of networking. She credits her own efforts ‘Working the Pond’ and building her ‘social capital’ to securing her current position at the Chamber. A job, she says, that she loves. “I moved here from Alberta in March 2009 and immediately got busy networking,” explains Perrin. “The first meeting I attended – at the HomeBased and Small Business Association – I am sure I looked like a deer caught in the headlights. “But I must have been doing something right … the Association later awarded me the 2010 New Business of the Year and the 2011 Business of the Year awards. So, I know from experience, positive networking works!” Perrin adds that using the entertaining

attend the Sept. 13 or 27 presentations but will get the most benefit from attending both. Different material will be covered in each one. Tickets are $20 per session for Chamber members and $24 for non-members. It’s the best networking deal in town as admission includes a continental breakfast, tip, tax and presentation materials. Pre-registration is required. Be sure to wear a name tag and bring your business cards. You are also welcome to bring a door prize — it’s another great way to promote your business and yourself.

Spreading the fun around Emulating the enormous South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, and its many venues, The Big Time Out in Cumberland evolved during the weekend. After focusing on Village Park for years, then moving last year to Ash Berry Farm in Royston, TBTO returned to the village this year – with a twist. Village Park again had the main stage and was the primary venue, but organizers consciously tried to include downtown Cumberland in this year’s festivities. With eight venues of self-described “music, dance, art and circus antics,” they succeeded. The Waverley, Cumberland and King George hotels featured soul, reggae, rock, bluegrass, burlesque, folk, pole dancing and other attractions. Local visiting DJs spun their spells in the Pyramid Lounge at the Cumberland Recreation Institute. The Sanctuary Tipi featured dance, the Corre Alice Gallery offered art and the King George meeting room presented puppetry and a video. The real wild card of the festival was the activity in the streets, particularly Dunsmuir Avenue. Locals and visitors couldn’t miss hula hoops, stilters, twirlers and circus arts as well as kids’ activities. The festival, at least during the day, was very much family-oriented. The children came, they saw, they had fun. One thing that helped families to celebrate with their children was moving alcohol out of the park and into the pubs, where professionals are used to serving it and dealing with patrons. Spreading things out likely kept the crowds smaller at the main stage, but more than in previous years people really roamed around and saw more than Village Park and the campground. Dunsmuir merchants seemed to do some good business, which is important these days when business, especially small business, needs all the help it can get. Festival organizers seem to be onto something by decentralizing activities. editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Record Question of the Week This week: Seventy-two per cent of respondents so far say they are concerned that part of the Comox Valley might join the Nanaimo-Alberni federal riding. Do you care about the proposal? Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord. com and vote in the Poll on the mainpage. Con Nicole Hall and Cpl. Const. David Winship camped atop Courtenay’s Canadian Tire to raise awareness and donations for B.C. Special Olympians.

Even if it was just an illadvised attempt at humour, a comment about kidnapping by one of two men scared a little girl and concerned an entire community.

Tax dollars wasted on lawsuit Dear editor, It was brought to my attention that not all Courtenay councillors were advocating for Maple Pool Campsite during the election campaign, and that is absolutely correct. I will rescind that comment and bring to your attention part of the oath they all took after the election, “...to faithfully perform the duties of my office for the betterment of my community...” I’m assuming three of them agree to cease the action against Maple Pool Campsite, and four against as clearly, not all of them agree. Mayor Jangula, Coun. Winchester, and Coun. Theos had said before the election they believe there must be a better solution than a lawsuit. I take them true to their word. I very seldom take a stand, join any bandwagons, never sign petitions, however I feel strongly

Mayor Jangula, maybe you or your staff, would be able to provide a description of ‘legal non-conforming land use’ to me.

about this issue and the tax dollars that are being, in my opinion, wasted. I have read all of the information that is publicly available, have spoken to involved people and have done my due diligence to research this particular situation. Again, I appreciate the confidentiality of in-camera meetings and do not expect council to comment directly on this case. Also, I respect the fact councillors are all making decisions based on the information they have or are

interpreting, as I am. The task of a mayor and councillor is sometimes very controversial and at times frustrating. I am sincere when I say that I respect the positions council members hold and the decisions they are making, however in this case I think there is a solution even though they, or staff, may think you’ve gone down the road too far to stop at this point. I believe they need to be asking staff more questions on “How this can be resolved?”, not “Where do we go from here?” Mayor Jangula, maybe you or your staff, would be able to provide a description of “legal non-conforming land use” to me. I realize you cannot speak specifically concerning Maple Pool Campsite, however, the description in general terms in the City of Courtenay. Jean Rowe, Comox Valley

Future bright on Vancouver Island Dear editor, While some might whine and complain about the planned redistribution of federal ridings on Vancouver Island and in the Comox Valley, I’m as pleased as punch! By dividing the CV in the proposed way, the riding of Vancouver Island North gets rid of people who mainly vote for loony leftist parties; thus ensuring the North Island will be represented by Conservative MPs for a long, long time. (Let’s hope Mr. Duncan runs again.) In fact, even by lumping most of the CV’s tree-huggers, hippies, enviro-extremists and Communists with the new NanaimoAlberni riding, the Conservative MP, Dr. James Lunney, will still win his riding. There won’t be enough leftwing nuts to overcome the strong Conservative plurality in last

year’s election. So rejoice fellow Conservatives! We have a bright future on

Vancouver Island! R. Sanders, Courtenay

‘Aloofness’ not unique Dear editor, I appreciated Friday’s editorial in which you suggest that Mr. Duncan is avoiding contact from the public and the media. However, I wish to point out that during Miss Bell’s time in Parliament, she too was criticized in the local press for being difficult to reach. In addition, although I was too young to remember him, I have heard complaints that Mr. Gilmour, MP for Comox — Alberni before the Comox Valley was joined to the new Vancouver Island North district, was similarly unapproachable. In other words, Mr. Duncan’s

seeming ‘aloofness,’ real or imagined, is not unique to him. In fact, his extra responsibilities as Aboriginal Affairs Minister may make him less to blame than his predecessors. Brendon Johnson, Courtenay

OPINION

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Protest allergy evident Dear editor, Watching the news one night, I saw the native protest in Bella Bella, B.C. that prompted the Northern Gateway review panel to cancel the hearings there. I was shocked that the sight of native people holding protest signs made panel members so fearful. It seemed to me to be overt racism: The implication was that native people are inherently violent, because their behaviour certainly was not. In Comox, on Aug. 10, the panel retreated to a ‘panic room’ when a guard at the door signalled them after he tried to stop a man from entering. He was wearing a T-shirt with anti-pipeline slogans on it. I believe that is why the staff member attempted to stop him. The man was close to my age — around 60. Like the people in Bella Bella, he posed absolutely no threat. It struck me then that it wasn’t racism that prompted the cancellation of hearings in Bella Bella but rather a belief that protest is dangerous. When the panel members left the hearing, the majority of people in the room rose and sang O Canada. I stood and sang for the Canada that isn’t afraid of protest. Benito Mussolini, the father of fascism, said it should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power. That is why I stood and sang O Canada. Terry Robinson, Courtenay

Disgusted by MP’s actions Dear editor, I was catching up on my reading regarding the state of affairs in Attawapiskat. This is the First Nations community with Third World living conditions that was in the news this past winter. The federal government’s response to the situation was to appoint a third-party manager over the objections of the Attawapiskat. The Attawapiskat took the federal government to court. The judge ruled the federal government did not act appropriately and sided with the Attawapiskat. Now during all of

JOHN DUNCAN

this, the housing situation has not improved in Attawapiskat. People are still living in overcrowded homes without the amenities such as running water, etc. that we all enjoy. With the coming winter they will still be living in unsatisfactory conditions. The purpose of this

letter is to point out the problems on this reserve are being exacerbated by our MP John Duncan, the minister for Aboriginal Affairs. Acting Chief Christine Kataquapit has said, “An application to Canada’s national housing agency for help financing the construction of 30 homes in Attawapiskat was not approved because Duncan refused to sign off on an agreement between Attawapiskat and CMHC.” So the next time we read that the Attawapiskat are living in tents and shacks and overcrowded homes in the winter at 30 below, please remember it

Address curlers’ needs Dear editor, The building that is now the Courtenay Recreation Centre Lewis Centre was formerly the Comox Valley Agricultural Hall and where the memorial pool was built were the barns and sheds to display farm animals. The CRA was established about 1948 and the memorial pool was built a few years later. The agricultural society moved to their present location and continued with the Fall Fair but not hav-

ing a large covered building for display of produce, the fair struggled. In about 1957 the society decided to build an agricultural hall on their property and a mortgage was arranged with the local credit union in the amount of about $85,000. This sum would include an ice-making facility to provide curling in the off-season to help pay the mortgage. In 1959, the curling club was formed and like other curling clubs

Apology in order Dear editor, I was horrified to read Summer Joy’s letter in the Aug, 17 edition of the Record. Ms. Joy over the years has been a regular letter writer to the local papers, and her name has become synonymous with environmentalism and humanism. So I was very disappointed to read her letter stereotyping the Chinese with regard to the abundance of non-indigenous frogs in the Comox Valley. Ms. Joy probably meant to be ironic, humorous? But it smacked of underlying bigotry, and I think she should write an apology otherwise it could be construed as a hate letter. Tony Martin, Courtenay

in the province, it was unprofitable. Nothing was paid on the mortgage in principal or interest. The only occupancy cost the curling club was able to pay was the annual property taxes. Eventually the credit union became impatient and made a demand for payment or they would foreclose. To check the loss of the building the curling club executive arranged for the regional board to take possession of the building. The point of this letter is that the icemaking facility is aged and wearing out. The most logical solution is to let the building revert to its original owners and developers and turn it into a farmers’ market. The needs of the curlers could be met with a well-insulated and purpose-built building adjacent to our existing ice rinks. Bruce McPhee, Comox Valley

was the MP we voted into office who did this. Please remember that when you vote next time. As a voter in this riding I am disgusted by John Duncan’s refusal to sign off on funding for 30 new homes in Attawapiskat. I am embarrassed that the MP of this riding has contributed to the misery of those living in shacks and tents. It is embarrassing to see the lack of action on this matter by John Duncan. The Harper government has had enough money to build schools, housing, etc. in Iraq and Afghanistan but can’t provide 30 homes for these Canadians. I suggest Mr. Duncan sign off on a new agreement ensuring 30 new homes are built in Attawapiskat. E.A. Foster, Comox

THIS IS TO the lady bike rider who a week ago was coming down the hill on Hawkins Road from Goose Spit to Torrence Road at 40 to 50 km/h and made no attempt to stop at the sign or even slow down. My wife and I would like to advise you that you have used up several of your nine lives. You are very lucky that I made a full stop and a slow takeoff as you roared past a few feet from the front of our car as we turned left from Torrence. If I had moved out a little faster you would have hit our car and been spread down the road 500 feet and very seriously injured or dead. Bike people are often asking for more lanes, more respect, etc. How about you respecting traffic signs! It may save your life! I hope you were shaken by your near miss; I know these two old people were. MANY BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS for Dr. M. Spring and her staff at

the CV medical “drop in” clinic. Your quick, correct diagnosis, treatment and follow-up has made my life so much easier. The entire efficient experience is a plus to our health care system. BIG BUNCH OF flowers to Roxannes in Comox. I purchased some clothing a few days ago, not knowing any difference in prices. A couple of days went by and I returned for different items. I was told they were glad I was there because they felt so bad about charging me 40 per cent more than the cost was. I would have never known anything different. What a nice surprise. It pays to shop local. A loyal customer. Cheers. THE CITY OF Courtenay watering a hardly used park at 4:30 a.m. on a Friday morning is not only disturbing one’s sleep. Isn’t it going against what all the residents are not doing during this very hot spell of weather we are having?

Brain Fair set for Simms

YOUNG PROFESSIONALS COMOX Valley executive members Matthew Beckett, Tim Trottier, Andrew Rice and Joe Renooy ((left to right) will golf as many holes as daylight permits to raise money for Habitat for Humanity.

Foursome will golf till they drop The Young Professionals Comox Valley (YPCV) are participating in their first Golf Marathon Fundraiser to benefit Habitat for Humanity on Aug. 29 at Crown Isle. Young Professionals Comox Valley executive members pictured left to right Matthew Beckett of Coastal Community, Tim Trottier of the Comox Valley Echo, Andrew Rice of Rice Toyota and Joe Renooy of MNP will be golfing as many holes as daylight permits at Crown Isle to raise money for Habitat for Humanity’s YPCV Piercy Build. YPCV has a fundraising goal of $10,000 and will make up one of 10 teams under the JETFM umbrella, which will build homes with Habitat for Humanity in the Comox Valley. President of YPCV Joe Renooy commented, “I can’t think of a better way to raise money for such a fantastic charity. Habitat for Humanity is such a big part of the Comox Valley and they do amazing things for area residents. Playing golf for charity, it can’t get any better than this.” The YPCV golf team are looking for sponsorship from individuals and local businesses to help them raise money for the YPCV Piercy build in the fall. Pledges can be on a per-hole basis or a set amount for the day. Each golfer will personally contribute $5 for every birdie or $10 for every eagle made by playing a modified Texas scramble format in two-man teams. To support the YPCV team, they are accepting donations in a number of formats, online, over the phone or in person. Donations can be made through a link on their website at www.YPCV.ca, phone donations can

be accepted by calling Habitat directly at 250-334-3784, or donors can see any of the YPCV golf team members. All proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity. Habitat for Humanity aims to eliminate the need for low-income families to live in

substandard housing by creating stability through affordable home ownership. The Young Professionals of Comox Valley (YPCV) aims to promote social interaction and assist in the professional development of the Comox Valley’s future leaders.

The group is open to business professionals, employees and entrepreneurs under the age of 40 who live or work in the Comox Valley. For more information, visit www.YPCV. ca. — Young Professionals of Comox Valley

The FASD Key Worker and the Comox Valley FASD Community Network will observe Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Awareness Day on Sept. 18. The groups will organize a Community Brain Fair at Simms Park from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It hopes to bring together community organizations that provide support, recreation, education and services to individuals and families affected by FASD as well as promote healthy living and healthy brain development to the community as a whole. “We recognize the need for a family friendly resource fair where parents/caregivers have easy access to information about local organizations and services and also offer entertainment for the children. We would like to have a balance of information booths and interactive activities,” the groups say. If your business or organization would like to hold demonstrations of the types of activities you offer, it would be a great opportunity for you to promote the services/products/ resources you provide. Reading, art, music, dance, yoga, helmet safety and healthy eating are all important factors of promoting healthy living and brain development. Organizers want a broad range of services represented to illustrate the different

ways to support healthy living and development. FASD is an umbrella term describing the range of harms caused by prenatal exposure to alcohol. These may include physical, mental, behavioural, and/or learning disabilities. The effects are lifelong. There is great variability in the characteristics of those affected depending on such factors as the amount and timing of the exposure of alcohol. Effects are often invisible, which leave individuals affected more vulnerable and misunderstood. While there are no precise statistics on the rates of FASD in Canada, it is estimated that nine in every 1,000 babies are born with FASD yearly and many more are living with it that go undiagnosed. FASD affects individuals from every community, every culture, every race and every socio-economic status. There is no known safe level of alcohol consumption during pregnancy. If you are interested in partnering in this initiative, please tell organizers what role you are willing to play.

Stinking rose great for you When you have just pulled almost 2,000 lovely fat garlic bulbs from the fertile soil, when the barn is filled with bunches of garlic drying and the air is redolent with that sweetly pungent scent, there is only one thing you can do in response — eat it! C h e f Joseph Forest and medical herbalist Chanchal Cabrera will do just that Aug. 28 — cooking, eating and celebrating the humble bulb in all its glory. Freshly picked at Innisfree Farm in Royston and prepared in delicious and surprising ways, this hands-on Garlic Lover’s workshop will have you chopping, cooking and tasting garlic as you never have before. While you experience its pleasures firsthand, Chanchal and Joseph will share the rich history and myriad of uses, both culinary and medicinal, of this powerhouse plant. You will even discover the secret of how to eat garlic and keep your friends (apart from feeding them all garlic as well). Revered as a great aphrodisiac by the Romans and as a powerful medicine by herbalists today, garlic is also reviled as the ‘stinking rose’ and in India

Repeated studies confirm that it is a potent antibacterial, anti-viral and antifungal and it shows promise in treating swine flu and other influenzas as well as infections, including antibiotic–resistant infections and septicemia.
