Earthquake tremors hit local water mains

Jolted: Thirty to 40 monthly quakes in the region possibly behind damage in Cowichan Peter W. Rusland

O

ne or more earthquake tremors early this week are believed to have damaged local water mains and interior sprinkler systems, local leaders and repair crews say. Sybille Sanderson, of Cowichan Valley Regional District’s emergency preparedness program, said effects from a 5.2-level shaker off To¿no on Aug. 19 may have been felt in Cowichan. “They’re going on all the time,” she said of 30 to 40 monthly tremblers — reported on Earthquakes Canada’s website — impacting the Paci¿c Northwest in varying degrees. She also cited a 1.4-level shaker Aug. 20 east/northeast of Cowichan. “They’re in our corner of the world.” That corner includes Duncan Street where works crews ¿xed a couple of water-main breaks Tuesday. Sprinklers inside one building at Beverly Corners were still under repair Thursday at press time. City Councillor Sharon Jackson is well aware of how continuous tremors can hurt Duncan’s aging water

The drug ecstasy is an illegal recreational drug used by some young people. Even one or two doses of this drug can result in long-term sleep problems. Over 70% of users report having disturbed sleep because the drug, being a stimulant, resets the body’s clock which often resets at the wrong time. Mood disorders can also occur. Many of the drugs we use today originated from nature. It’s always interesting when a common product like thyme, formulated into a tincture, is found to have antibacterial effects that may make it useful in treating acne. It’s far from being available on our shelves for that purpose but it does show promise.

Witness tip: Charges pending against a Duncan man Peter W. Rusland

A

witness’ tip led to the bust of a Duncan man during Wednesday’s attempted vehicle theft in core Cobble Hill, Shawnigan Lake RCMP say. Mounties answered a citizen report of an attempted break-in at Cobble Hill Fine Furnishings at 2:40 a.m. Aug. 22. They found a lone male inside a white, 2007 cube van at Cobble Hill Fine Furnishings, Sgt. Rob Webb said. “Police arrested the 40-year-old male from Duncan without incident. “The vehicle’s ignition was jammed with a pair of scissors, and the vehicle had been thoroughly rummaged,” Webb said, thanking folks keeping their eyes peeled for crime, then reporting it. RCMP will recommend Criminal Code charges of theft of auto over $5,000, theft under $5,000, and mischief under $5,000, he said. Suspects’ names generally can’t be released until charges are laid. Shawnigan Lake RCMP are at 250-743-5514.

ating clams from Cowichan Bay by 2020 is the goal of folks hauling junk from the Cowichan River this weekend, while a $200,000 study of watershed pollution starts. Those topics can be discussed during Sunday’s Bay Pub Burger & Beer fundraiser by the Quamichan Stewards, with proceeds helping the bay’s Cowichan Estuary Nature Centre. “People can help clean up the river, then go to the ($20) Burger & Beer after,” said Kai Rietzel of the Stewards. The fourth-annual river scour starts Saturday with Cowichan Lake & River Stewards pulling trash from the Cowichan Lake end, starting at the weir. That work will reach Sahtlam’s Sandy Pools Saturday, then the Cowichan Tribes and Cowichan Watershed Board members continue cleaning the heritage river on Sunday, ending in Cow Bay. Registration (250-749-3055, 749-7203) and breakfast happens Aug. 25 at 9 a.m. at Lake Cowichan Town Hall. Saturday’s garbage grab — with Mountain Man Service hauling trash found— ends with a 2 p.m. barbecue. CLRSS spokesman Gerald Thom said the effort usually yields about a tonne of trash. “It’s sad, but getting way better than it was when we started,” he said, noting junk is hard to reach at the weir, and Little Beach to Skutz Falls. Meanwhile, an initiative between the Cowichan Valley Regional District, Tribes, environment ministry, the feds, conservation groups and stakeholders was recently announced by CVRD chairman Rob Hutchins, and Chief Harvey Alphonse. The $200,000 Cowichan Watershed Partnership Project aims to initiate restoration and protection of watershed quality. Issues include ending Cow Bay’s shell¿sh closure since the early ‘70’s due to contamination; signi¿cant kills of juvenile salmon in parts of the lower watershed, maybe related to contamination; and problems related to cumulative impacts of turbidity, nutrients and bacteriological contamination — particularly in the lower Cowichan and Koksilah Rivers. “Simply stated, the ¿rst target is clean water,” said Hutchins. “We need to meet provincial standards for surface water quality. It’s a no brainer. People throughout the watershed want to feel that the water is clean and not contaminated.” “The second target is to be able to eat shell¿sh from the Cowichan estuary by 2020,” added Alphonse.

Taking the plunge in the dunk tank during the Cowichan District Hospital’s second-annual fun fair Wednesday afternoon is News Leader Pictorial reporter Peter Rusland. The care-fair raised some $7,000, a $3,000 boost from last year’s event helping the CDH Foundation. The money will help build a new CDH whose start date and site is still pending. The day’s festivities also included numerous other activities such as bowling, a bouncy castle and more plus the necessary summer foods such as hot dogs and popcorn to keep young and old alike happy.

“Clam beds in Cowichan Bay are incredibly productive but the clams aren’t safe to eat — it’s shameful. “Those clams are the canary in the coal mine. When we can eat them again, we will have come a long way toward cleaning up this magni¿cent watershed.” The watershed board is adding $80,000 to the ministry to support water sampling and project coordination. Tribes is adding staff time and $25,000 it received from Ottawa to determine levels of chemical contaminants in shell¿sh tissues. The 2 1/2-year project began in mid-August and involves weekly sampling during low Àows to determine the baselines. Fall sampling will coincide with rain events so storm effects can be seen, and pollution sources — from septic ¿elds and boats to storm sewers — can be pinpointed. Year one focuses on the lower watershed then expands to the Cowichan Lake area in year two. Rodger Hunter of the watershed board expected enforcement to follow. “If we don’t start, we never will.” Call Tribes at 250-701-8381, or the CVRD at 250746-2509.

Duncan woman’s 1939 violin returned Stolen-property bust: Alberta tourist helps Victoria Police bust a burglary ring in Esquimalt that yielded senior’s violin stolen after a show Peter W. Rusland

Duncan senior has gotten her rare violin back from the Victoria Police, who recently busted a stolen-property ring in Esquimalt. “A 1939 Jetson Gilbert violin, with an estimated worth of $10,000, was recovered in a Victoria Police raid on a stash of stolen goods last week in Esquimalt,” the police say in a release. “The rightful owner, an 80-year-old Duncan woman, will soon be reunited with her prized instrument.” The Duncan violin owner’s name wasn’t released. The instrument was taken from the 80-year-old woman’s vehicle on Aug. 8, shortly after she returned from performing at a seniors’ centre, police say. Last week, an Alberta tourist used a GPS application on her stolen iPad to lead VicPD to the “department store” of stolen property, which included electronics, guitars, and credit cards, capital cops say. Police have laid charges of possession of stolen property, break and enter, and breach against four people who were in the apartment at the time. Theodore Turko, 36, Nancy Klein, 39, Natasha Day, 26, and Michael Merrick, 31, face charges in the incident.

Duncan man and a Victoria woman were arrested by Saanich Police during last Thursday’s bust of two marijuana-growing operations, Monday magazine says. Saanich cops seized more than 900 cannabis plants — now incinerated — in the Cordova Ridge area, and arrested a couple that had no previous record with police. A 51-year-old Duncan man, and 50-year-old Victoria woman were col-

lared Aug. 16, after BC Hydro personnel alerted police about two sophisticated hydro diversions at the location, Monday says. Police found two large pot-growing operations in full production, plus several kilograms of freshly cut and dried bud. The two individuals did not have medical marijuana-growing permits on ¿le with Health Canada, Sgt. Scott Treble said. The individuals now face proposed charges of producing marijuana, production of marijuana for the purpose of traf¿cking, and electricity theft, Monday says.

Bamberton: Dust to Bust and Back Forgotten gem: Historical Society book depicts what it was like at the old cement factory and nearby village

The Bamberton community has a rich and colourful history, documented in a book by the Bamberton Historical Society. exist. There was no information about them. I tried to gather whatever I could in terms of archives. It took me six years to piece together all the documents.” In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Bamberton, Alexander teamed up with the Bamberton Historical Society to write a book about the area. She hopes this book will raise the pro¿le of Bamberton and educate residents of the Cowichan Valley about their local history. “I want an awareness of local history and the signi¿cance of this site. It’s the most historic signi¿cant site certainly in the Cowichan Valley and

Vancouver Island,” she said. “People don’t realize that ships from all over the world came in to Bamberton to pick up cement. They took cement back for major projects in their countries. It’s always been a locked industrial site since day one and it is hidden off the highway in the forest. Most people have no idea of the signi¿cance it has in B.C’s history.” The book can be ordered online through the Bamberton Historical Society’s website. It includes photos and stories from people who used to live and work there. The area has been designated an important historical site by the Royal B.C. Museum.

Inlet. A tour of the old cement factory and nearby village is like stepping back into the 1900s. But for the most part, this historic site has been neglected and lays abandoned in the woods. But now, residents of the Cowichan Valley can read about this historical site in Bamberton: Dust to Bust and Back. “It was a ghost town, it was eerie. There were hand built rock walls and rock bridges that the Chinese had built in the 1920s. There were houses and schools, a community hall and it was as all hidden in the forest and that is what intrigued me. I was like ‘What happened here?’ said Maureen Alexander, one of the main authors of the book. “When I looked into its history I realized that there had never been anything documented about the industrial parts or the little village on the hillside. It’s like the workers and the villagers didn’t

Studies, debate and meetings a slow process Take the lead: Voters seem apathetic or ignored

L

ead, follow, or get out of the way. Media-mogul Ted Turner’s motto nicely applies to many Cowichan leaders who simply seem unwilling or unable to make yes-or-no decisions. Despite years of costly studies, long debates, meetings, referenda, and expensive consultants, most decisions remain in the slow lane. The City of Duncan has talked about gateways from the highway to downtown, plus a vibrant pedestrian atmosphere downtown. Where are they? City hall sent Bench elementary students’ good idea about a plastic bag ban to the Cowichan Valley Regional District. Politicians Directors have left the bag-ban on hold. must take a Likewise with a tree-cutting bylaw being by a city council that took years to stance, follow mulled enact a chicken bylaw. or bow out And North Cowichan council and the CVRD still can’t bring themselves to ban burning in the valley, despite complaints by seniors and ill folks. Likewise with Cowichan’s myriad of old septic ¿elds fouling Quamichan Lake, Cowichan River and other precious waterways. Developers have long complained building approvals, or rejections, move like molasses through North Cowichan hall. Why? In some cases, our leaders simply send issues into limbo-land — such as North Cowichan’s planned development of Chemainus’ Echo Heights forest. Locals still laugh about council’s indecision about stopping the clearcut that was The Cliffs Over Maple Bay. It just seems our politicians are generally afraid to make decisions, with or without a raft of data and public feedback. It also appears when decisions are made, public reaction surfaces, such as during the CVRD’s embarrassing, costly Eco-Depot mess. Maybe that’s the answer. Make calculated decisions, wait for caring citizens’ reaction, then gauge the wisdom of the ruling before any damage is done.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like Current members of the CVAC Jaguars taking their track and field talents to the highest level showed the results of all their hard work at the Legion national championships in Prince Edward Island. Just to win a medal at this event is a huge accomplishment. And, yet, the group brought back a relay bronze, a gold and a bronze by Agnes Esser and a silver by Chicago Bains. Well done!

CVAC athletes can be proud of their performances at the Legion nationals.

North Cowichan budgeting should be participatory Robert Douglas

News Leader Pictorial

S

hould North Cowichan move to a more direct form of democracy, where residents are given a greater say on how municipal funds are spent in their communities, especially in distinct neighbourhoods such as Chemainus and Crofton? This is a question some of us are asking ourselves after observing the recent issues with the Chemainus Town Centre Revitalization Plan, adopted by North Cowichan council last fall. The original plan calls for a new library to be constructed in Waterwheel Park, in downtown Chemainus. However, community opposition has forced North Cowichan to consider other sites. North Cowichan’s recent decision came after the Chemainus Advisory Committee — upon hearing the concerns of the local business community — recommended the municipality look

at other building locations. Participatory budgeting—a radical form of direct democracy pioneered in South America could be a solution to such problems, where there is clearly a level of disconnect between the spending priorities of the municipality and large segments of the community. Under the participatory budgeting model, regular citizens get to decide where to spend part of the municipal budget, meeting in large neighbourhood assemblies and voting on priority projects. Participatory budgeting traces its roots to Porto Allegre, one of Brazil’s most populated cities, where it was ¿rst implemented in 1989. In Porto Allegre, the participatory budgeting process takes place on an annual cycle, with residents meeting in neighborhood assemblies that can attract more than 1,000 participants. In these large meetings, residents identify local priority needs, propose ideas to address them, and elect delegates to represent each neighbourhood.

There’s no excuse for leaving garbage lying around. People visiting our parks and nature areas should be packing up everything they brought in with them instead of leaving it for someone else. If recycling or garbage containers aren’t around, surely it can be taken home in the car and then disposed of in the proper manner later. We should all do our part to keep the valley clean.

COWICHAN LEADERS

These delegates then spend the following months meeting with municipal staff and delegates from other neighborhoods to develop concrete projects to respond to local priorities. Residents are then given the opportunity to vote on which projects they want to fund. Finally, the municipal government implements those projects approved through the voting process. In Porto Allegre, 50,000 residents are now involved in the participatory budgeting process, deciding how $200 million in municipal funds should be spent. During the past two decades, participatory budgeting has spread across the world, to more than 1,200 municipalities in South America, Europe, Africa and Asia. In recent years, the model has been implemented in communities in both Canada and the United States, including New York City and Chicago. The participatory budgeting model has proved highly successful, with evidence

showing it gives community members more of a voice, results in more equitable spending decisions, develops active and democratic citizens, strengthens community organizations, and makes local government more accountable and ef¿cient. With civic engagement and voter apathy growing problems, and large segments of the community clearly unhappy with some of the municipality’s spending decisions, now is the time for our mayor and council to act boldly and explore the idea of participatory budgeting, beginning a new era of grassroots democracy in one of British Columbia’s oldest municipalities.

Pipeline journey an example of the kind of attention this deserves

Dear editor Re: photographer Paul Fletcher’s documenting Enbridge Route (Aug 8). Hooray and bravos to Fletcher and Daniel Sikorsky for documenting the feelings of those most affected by this controversial project — Enbridge Pipeline soon to be happening in your neighbourhood. Collectively our sacred voice can be heard. The David Suzuki Foundation also asks our voices be heard on this matter by Aug. 31. For those who have not taken the time to investigate the future rami¿cations of continuing the addiction to fossil fuels, it may well be too late. Just consider if it were to happen here locally, would it matter? Would it matter to us if one of those tankers delivering the crude unre¿ned tar sands accidentally dropped its load in our waters? Wake up folks! Let’s not through our complacency and ignorance allow another BP Oil spill in our coastal waters. The time is now for our collective hearts through our voice be exercised before it’s too late. Hooray for Ecuador’s citizens for marching for their freedom from Chevron’s destroying their land!

uring research at the museum archives micro¿lm reader, I often come across stories I don’t remember writing. Not so this one. In August 1979, I recall meeting the Le family, who’d endured unimaginable horrors on the South China seas after their escape from Hanoi. Their English was halting, their words carefully and painfully selected from a tattered dictionary picked up in Hong Kong just before their ¿nal journey to Duncan. They were Cowichan’s ¿rst boat people from Vietnam. “Boat...awful,” said Bich Hang Duong, who with husband Xuam Thanh Le and daughter Thuy Anh had been sponsored by Duncan’s Christian Reformed Church and were staying with Herman and Ida Van Boven at their Koksilah Road farm. The church’s congregation had applied to sponsor two more families that could arrive at any time. Escaping with just two bags of belongings, mostly clothes, the Le’s spent 2 1/2 months on the South China seas. “From what we can make out, they were on one of two small boats being towed by a little tugboat,” said Ida Van Boven. The family would stay at the farm until they could speak enough English to be understood. The Van Bovens were actively searching for an interpreter.

Caregiver reaches out to help autistic adult and she could go up to the top Àoor and lay in her room whenever she wanted and have some privacy,’’ said Holmes. “But right now she is downstairs with me and that’s the only choice she has. She has to wait for me to take her up or down.’’ At 51, Sayle does not fall under the mandate of most charitable organizations, which only help autistic children. Despite Holmes’ many attempts to reach out, help has been hard to come by. “For an adult, there isn’t fundraising available,’’ explained Holmes. “I’ve tried but it is just zero. I had one person who was willing to fundraise but then they found out she was an adult and they said ‘Sorry, we only fundraise for children.’ It has been very frustrating.” Holmes estimates he needs $6,500 for a stair lift and $2,500 for a bath lift. However, on his own, Holmes doesn’t think he can afford it. “For the ¿rst few years of looking after her, it was just me and I didn’t get paid and she was on welfare and so was I,” Holmes explained. “The family wants nothing to do with her.

or Dorothy Sayle, climbing the stairs is not a regular task. As an autistic adult with physical disabilities, Sayle is unable to go up and down the stairs or get herself into the bathtub. Without any mechanical aids, Sayle depends on her caregiver, Tobius Holmes, to move around the house. “Right now I take my time when we go down the stairs,’’ explained Holmes, the sole caregiver for Sayle. “We go down backwards and Dorothy holds my shoulders and we take it one step at a time. It takes 10 to 15 minutes, unless she gets scared and freezes and then we stand there for 30 minutes. I’ve been trying for the last few years to get a stair lift for the house we live in.” A stair and bath lift in Sayle’s house would ensure her safety on the staircase and in the bath. It would also increase her mobility and allow her to be more independent. “This way she would have some freedom

Powell River was good to members of the Ensemble Laude female choir during the Kathaumixw International Choral Festival.

t might have been Âżrst-time lucky for the Ensemble Laude female choir. The aural troupe under Cowichan’s Elizabeth MacIsaac — boasting a Ă€ock of valley songbirds — plucked two awards during its Âżrst road trip — and second-ever competition — to Powell River’s Kathaumixw International Choral Festival. But to soprano Karlin Creed it was the love of singing that earned Laude golds in the Equal Voice Category by its 12-voice chamber Encanta group, and its 26-voice Ensemble Laude choir. “Having the two choirs competing, and performing all week, was a marathon for us and our director, Elizabeth MacIsaac, but we prevailed and even sang at Ryerson Cathedral in Vancouver on the way home on Sunday,â€? said Creed, who sang in the Encanta and the bigger Ensemble Laude group. The choir has also performed during the past year at the Fairbridge Chapel, Duncan Garage Showroom, Duncan United Church, and at the Duncan Choral Festival. “These two awards get our name out there, and opens possibilities for

travel to other festivals. It gets our area out into the world,� said the 38-yearold North Cowichanian, who joined Laude two years ago. “I took some lessons with Rachel Perkyns, and auditioned with help from Meghan Robertson,� she said of Laude’s eldest member. “It was kind of scary because I didn’t have aspirations for singing. It’s given me a whole sense of possibility of what you can do in the world with music, and how it brings things together.� Ensemble Laude — with singers age 14 and older — started as a medieval choir, “but there’s a lot of modern compositions that harmonize, and Elizabeth’s very good with those — she picks all our repertoire. “Some songs are upbeat, and they’re really beautiful,� Creed said. Proof was heard en route to those two medals at Kathaumixw. Encanta sung Landini’s Questa Sanciull’amor in Italian, and Reel A Bouche (in French); and the Ojibway love song My Love Has Departed in Ojibway. “We had to memorize all of them.� Ensemble Laude performed Adoramus Te (Latin); Chasing the Northern Lights; and a Shaker suite of three songs from the 1800s, in English.

THE BIG EVENT

The Vancouver Island ArtistFest is a multimedia/artists festival taking place on Aug. 25 and 26 in Honeymoon Bay.

Now in its second year, the festival has decided to relocate to Honeymoon Bay, just west of Lake Cowichan. “We’re very excited to have secured the Honeymoon Bay grounds as the new home for the Vancouver Island ArtistFest, and look forward to transforming it into a highly anticipated local event,” said organizer Matt

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A19 Beasley. There are more than 20 musical acts lined up along with a full vendors market featuring artists from across Vancouver Island. Tickets are $60 and can be purchased at the door. For more information, search Vancouver Island ArtistFest on Facebook, or visit onedimensional.org/artistfest.

Urban fantasy probes reality of chaotic world James Funfer: Author prods readers to think about their own existence, and the state of our world through his characters Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

P

rodding readers to think about their own existence, and the state of the world, is James Funfer’s goal from his ¿rst novel, Crystal Promise: The Shattered Crystal. “It’s an urban fantasy — the ¿rst in a series — inspired by early 20th-century European history,” he explained, promoting Promise in his hometown of Calgary. “Its about teens put into arranged marriages by their church. “There are elements reminiscent of the Catholic church,” he said of his fantasy world, “but this church has a pantheon of gods they follow — one is like a Jupiter or Zeus deity,” the Mill Bay resident, and admitted atheist, said. “It’s written through the point of view of six different characters — like George R.R. Martin writes a book. “It’s character driven with their own goals and desires — there isn’t really a protagonist and antagonist.” Still, conÀict surfaces, explained Funfer, 28. “Lots of struggle comes from living dayto-day life. There is a character named Paulo, a young reactionary who’s involved in the arranged marriages — he’s an emotionless boy who only cares about social change.” Sounds familiar given turmoil in the Middle East and elsewhere. So does 380-page Promise’s political landscape. “The country is culturally like Italy but politically like Germany, with a strong labour movement. Socialism’s also big, and the economy’s in shambles — it’s kind of

topical.” So is Promise’s world where fossil fuels aren’t the force they are on Earth. “Everything runs off of crystals, not oil, gas and electricity. It has a 1930s feel, but it’s not Earth, it’s another world,” he said of his human-like characters whose lives are controlled by politics and social upheaval. That’s where fantasy meets reality. “People don’t realize it, but those things affect their lives everyday,” said Funfer, a politics and history junkie who studied, drama, journalism creative writing before beginning Promise in late 2010. The plot morphed as he wrote about characters who took on lives of their own. “I want people to think about what my characters are doing, and if it relates to their own lives. “This novel became a lot darker than I expected. It’s more dramatic and emotional,” he said. “There’s some mild sex that’s glossed over, but there. There’s also some violence — a series of Àashbacks of the experiences of two characters involved in a war,” he explained of his craft that takes patient commitment. “I wouldn’t urge anyone to write a book if they’re hoping to get rich,” he told the News Leader Pictorial. “You have to do it because you enjoy it.” Still, Funfer’s enjoying positive feedback from friends, family and fans who’ve read Promise. “People are compelled by the words, and say they can’t wait for the sequel I’m in the middle of writing — it could be ready in about a year.” Crystal Promise is expected by September at Bucknucks, and Volume One book shops. Also, visit Amazon.com.

MITCHELL, Neil January 10, 1959 – August 7, 2012 It is with our deepest sorrow that we say farewell to our beloved husband, best friend, brother and uncle. Neil passed away peacefully August 7, 2012 surrounded by his wife and family. He is pre-deceased by his father, George and mother, Gabrielle. Neil was born in Hamilton, ON and grew up in Burlington, ON where he fell in love with motorcycles, skiing and bicycles. The majority of Neil’s adult life was spent in various communities in BC, starting in Nelson and ending in Duncan. He acquired many friends everywhere he lived and worked as a welder and fabricator and as a bicycle shop owner and technician. Neil’s passion for his life and work was transferred to a new career with CNRL at the Horizon site in Safety and Integrity working as an NDT Technician. His love of learning, and the pride he took in his work were always evident, and he challenged those around him to keep up with the ‘old guy’. Neil will be forever loved and missed by his wife Tara, brothers Paul (Mary and Zoe) and Tim as well as relatives in England and California and the numerous friends he made throughout his life. The family would like to thank the staff at the Oak and Carriage for their assistance and professionalism shown during Neil’s medical emergency. We would also like to thank the EMT’s and staff at Cowichan District Hospital and ďŹ nally the staff at Royal Jubilee’s Cardiac Care Unit in Victoria. Please join the family for Neil’s Celebration of Life and reception on Saturday, September 15, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Cobble Hill Community Hall, 3550 Watson Ave, Cobble Hill, BC. In lieu of owers please make a donation to the Boys and Girls Club of Canada in memory of Neil Mitchell www.canadahelps.org/gp/20379 using this link, or take the time to enjoy one of the charity events that the Boys and Girls Club host to raise funds in your own community.

Born on August 23, 1952 passed away peacefully in the loving arms of his beloved wife on August 21, 2012. Survived by his wife Roberta and children Jacci, Nadine and Matthew. His mother Christina, sister Teresa and brothers Frank, Andy and Mike. He was a genuine, well respected man who loved all that God created. An avid outdoors man who provided for his family through hunting, ďŹ shing and teaching his children “survivalâ€? skills. Lessons never to be forgotten. His compassion for all was felt in all that he did. He was a doer, not a talker and showed his kindness through example. He touched so many people in such a profound way, it’s difďŹ cult to ďŹ nd words to express. His love for God and his family were prevalent, until his last breathe, when he was taken to the gates of Heaven and welcomed home by our Heavenly Father. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Friday, August 24, 2012 at Centennial Hall in Lake Cowichan from 1pm-4pm. On line condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

She leaves behind, but never forgot, her family in Britain: brothers, Jack (deceased), Derek, Dick (Joan) and Bill. Also her sister Mary Jackson of Eckville Alta. She is survived by her children John, Suzanne Mirlach and Gary (Debra). She will be dearly missed by her seven Grandchildren, eight Great-grandchildren and many Nieces and Nephews. Vida passed away peacefully at the Hilton Villa in Surrey BC on August 14 2012. A special Thank You to the Sunset Chapter of the Eastern Star for never forgetting Vida, and a VERY special Thanks to the caregivers at the Hilton Villa. There will be no service by request.

Lois Mary Tyerman (nee Baldiga) August 21 1935 – August 14 2012 Lois lived with MS for 42 years, however she sadly lost a short battle against cancer a week before her 77th birthday and passed away peacefully at Cowichan District Hospital with her family by her side. Predeceased by her mother Agnes, brother Bob and Sister Marg she is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Len, daughters Pat, Janet (Mike) and Cindy, sons Brent (Judy) and Bruce, brothers Sam (Mertle) and George (Mary) as well as numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Mom will be greatly missed and thought of fondly at family dinners where she enjoyed playing many different card games. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude for all of the nurses, doctors and other hospital staff at CDH that helped care for Lois. At the family’s request there will be no service at this time. On-line condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com H.W. Wallace 251 Jubilee St. 250-701-0001

avid and Janet Gardner were obviously only pacing themselves in the preliminary round of the Cowichan Lawn Bowling Club’s annual mixed pairs tournament. The Gardners only squeaked into the playoffs, but caught Âżre to win the championship in the event that attracted 14 teams. “Over half of the teams were comprised of husbands and wives which are one of the many attractions of lawn bowling, as both men and women can enjoy playing and competing in the game together,’’ David Gardner pointed out. “Our club has a number of very good bowlers which makes it extremely difÂżcult to get into the Âżnal

Litza Slemko makes her shots count. rounds of any event at the club,’’ he added. Tom and Litza Slemko were tops in the preliminary round, with Sheila Weathered and Jim Brown placing second. Four teams were then tied with the same number of points so

the calculators were brought out. After determining points for and against, Roy Jaskow and Carol McCoy grabbed the third spot and the Gardners fourth to complete the semi¿nal pairings. The Gardners defeated Brown and Weathered, with both teams trading some exceptional shots. The Slemkos knocked off McCoy and Jaskow in the other semi¿nal that was very close. The women stole the show in the ¿nal. Litza Slemko and Janet Gardner were both at the top of their game and made some brilliant shots. Janet bumped Litza’s ball off the jack in the last end to allow the Gardners to emerge as the winners. The weather was perfect for the competition. Bowlers enjoyed the challenges of the game and spending time with good friends that makes the sport appealing to so many.

he Duncan Red Hots Midget A fastpitch team has one tough group of girls. The Red Hots didn’t win a game at the Softball B.C. Under 18 provincial championships hosted in View Royal and Saanich, but coach Brian Bull was impressed with their efforts. “We didn’t come last, which is a good thing,’’ he said. “I take pride in that. We learned a lot and we’ll continue on for next year.’’ The Red Hots went into the competition at a disadvantage as the youngest team at the tournament with only six players over 17 years of age and the rest under 16. The team chose to move up a division because the girls wanted an opportunity to play at a higher level. “It’s been a journey for us,’’ said Bull, who has been with the program since he started it six years ago. “We were a B team last year and the move up to A was like from swimming in the river to swimming in the ocean.

said to the parents early on in the season that if we look at wins and losses, we will go nuts. By the end of the season, we were competitive in every game. It’s a good accomplishment for how hard the kids worked.â€? Bull is hoping to build on the girls’ experience. “Next year, I want to see us be a .500 type of team. This year, six B.C. teams went to nationals. With that record, we would have a good chance of going to nationals.â€? Bull is conÂżdent his players have the skills to compete at the national level. “One of our players is playing for another team at nationals and she’s batted around .530, which makes her the number three batter at that tournament.â€? Bull said he won’t know until tryouts in September what next season’s Red Hot team will look like. “Until we have tryouts, we really don’t know where we sit. We were Âżrst-year midgets this year who will have more experience next year. There may be some girls who are second-year bantams but want to make a decision on bettering their skills by trying out for our team.â€?

he B.C. Under 15 Blue girls’ ¿eld hockey team won the gold medal at the U16 nationals in Surrey, thanks to some powerhouse performances from Cowichan Valley players.

The team’s valley contingent included: Chelsey Cleemoff, who served as captain, Casey Crowley, Sara Lowes, Krystyna Neal and Maddie Smith. The B.C. team won 4-2 in a shootout against Ontario U16, with Crowley and Cleemoff scoring goals. The game was tied 1-1 after the

Âżrst half, as Cleemoff scored the B.C. goal on a short corner. There was no scoring in the second half and during two 7 1/2-minute sudden death overtime periods. B.C. White won the bronze medal with a 3-0 win over Alberta. Valley players Kelsey Goodman and Brittany Smith were members of the B.C. White squad.

Fast times put valley athletes among track’s elite Legion nationals: Prince Edward Island trip yields medals from superb efforts Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

T

he culmination of a great season took members of the CVAC Jaguars to Prince Edward Island to face other elite athletes from across the nation in the Legion national track-and-¿eld championships. And the Jaguars plus transplanted valley athlete Agnes Esser, representing Team B.C., weren’t content just to show up. They gave their best in all events and obtained some outstanding results. Chicago Bains, Mary-Kate Cross, Tia Baker, Colby Peleshaty and Austin Palou all put the CVAC program on the map and provided the younger athletes coming up with incentive to reach the highest level of track and ¿eld for youth in Canada. Bains came through with a silver medal in her signature event, the 80-metre hurdles, in 11.77 seconds. She also came fourth in the 200 hurdles for the Under 16 age category in 28.51 and joined forces with Baker, Cross and Victoria’s Jordyn Piercy for a bronze medal in the 4x100 Under 18 girls’ relay. Bains won her 80 hurdles heat and went straight to the ¿nal. “I think it was a tenth of a second,’’ she said of the gap

between second and a victory. “She was a new face. “It felt good. There was really good competition out there. “I was very much pushed by the other athletes. They gave me a run for my money.’’ Bains thoroughly enjoyed the relay experience with the older girls. “It worked out really well,’’ she said. “Our passes were really smooth. We were really happy with that.’’ “There was no stress behind it,’’ said Cross. “Both of our coaches Dacre (Bowen) and John (May) said our passes were perfect.’’ Cross and Baker also ran the 100- and 200-metre events for Under 18 girls. Cross was 18th in the 100 out of 33 competitors in 12.65, just ahead of Baker’s 12.69 for 19th spot. “It was a personal best,’’ said Cross. “It was my ¿rst race. At that point, I was just freaking out. I just pushed myself into it.’’ “I de¿nitely could have done better,’’ said Baker of her race. “I thought I had false-started. I came out of the blocks funny.’’ In the 200, Baker clocked 26.29 for 23rd out of 43 and Cross came in at 26.39 for 24th. “That didn’t go as well as I would have liked it to,’’ Baker said of the 200. “I had bronchitis.’’ Peleshaty’s individual results

on the track included a tie for 17th place in the 100 metre sprint in 11.37 and 20th place in the 200 at 23.34. “I got one personal best in my 100, the 200 wasn’t too great,’’ said Peleshaty. “I was hoping for 22 (seconds), but I didn’t get it.’’ Sprinting is the common bond for the club members. “I like other things, but the 100 and 200 are my favourites,’’ said Peleshaty, who’s going into Grade 12 at Frances Kelsey secondary. “I learned a few new things.’’ Palou of Chemainus entered the 300-metre hurdles for Under 18 boys and came 14th out of 22 competitors in 41.42. Esser was a master of the ¿eld events for Under 18 girls. She won the shot put with a Canadian youth and championship record throw of 15.09 metres while tossing the discus 39.41 m for third place. All the athletes thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the experience. “It was awesome,’’ said Cross. “Everyone was so nice there.’’ “It was really fun,’’ said Baker. “It was de¿nitely different than what I’d previously experienced.’’ Cross and Bains had a long delay on their way to Prince Edward Island but all was not lost. “We had a few days to adjust to the new time and stuff,’’ said Bains.
