Trio of factors behind closures Restaurateurs affected by high food prices, new liquor laws and harmonized sales tax BY TOBY GORMAN

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

High expectations Cpl. Norm Smith, left, and reserve constable Chris Fernandes, representing Nanaimo on this year’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock team, wave to passersby and the camera from their lofty perch at Port Place Shopping Centre. The riders spent Friday above the mall’s parking lot raising cash to fight childhood cancer with help from a hotdog sale put on by Coast Capital Savings and Thrify Foods. The payoff was $2,700 in donations.

perfect storm of high food prices, new drinking and driving laws and the harmonized sales tax are putting the squeeze on downtown restaurants and causing some to close, says Peter Ertsos, owner of Diners Rendezvous. The restaurant closed its doors two weeks ago, just a few days after the Modern Café and the Dancing Goat coffee shop closed, leaving a growing culinary void in Nanaimo’s downtown. Ertsos said both restaurants and retail owners he’s talked to are having a tough time. “The biggest challenge I see is oil prices,” he said. “It has affected not only food costs but everything we’re buying lately. Everything is outrageously priced and it’s all due to transportation costs.” Ertsos, who has been in the restaurant business for 30 years, said he grew tired of working 14-hour days, seven days a week with little or no profit. When the province introduced tough new drinking and driving laws, Ertsos said he went from placing a $4,000 liquor order monthly to just an $800 order. Prior to that, food costs increased exponentially. In 2005, a nine-kilogram box of tortilla chips cost $18.76. Today the same item costs $36.

Everything is outrageously priced and it’s all due to transportation costs.

Last August, he said he paid $16.95 for a 11-kg case of bell peppers. In the winter months, that increases to more than $100. Food shortages and an imbalance in distribution in North America have prompted imports from Europe and Asia, further increasing prices. “The salad is still $7,” he said. With restaurant margins at a razor thin three to five per cent per plate, too much is piling up on owners to make a go of it, said Ertsos. Corry Hostetter, general manager at the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association, said her interviews with downtown Nanaimo restaurant owners suggests a natural progression of change. ◆ See ‘OTHER’ /4

Development helps fill housing need

I

WAKESIAH AVE. project first of its kind in Nanaimo.

BY JENN MCGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo’s first privatelyfunded student housing complex officially opens its doors Wednesday (Aug. 29). Great West Student Residences on Wakesiah Avenue, across from Vancouver Island University, is a 25-unit, 37-bed student housing complex. The furnished one- and two-bedroom suites each feature a kitchenette with microwave, fridge and twoburner stove and a threepiece bathroom. The threestorey building also has indoor and outdoor common areas on each floor, free wireless Internet, a covered bike storage area in the basement, coin-operated laundry facility and secured premises, including cameras, key card entry and on-site management. Manjit Bal, owner of Great West Developments Ltd., said he got the idea for the residences in 2009 when he was in Nanaimo working on another project and had a conversation with some city officials about the shortage of student housing in the city. Because the project was a first for Nanaimo, a unique zoning had to be created for the project. “There was no legislation, no rules and regulations to follow,” said Maureen Pilcher, a land-use consultant representing Great West. “We basically had to reinvent the wheel. It’s not only dedicated to students, it’s covenanted so it can only be for students.” She said the complex is being marketed to international students because of its location next to the university and proximity to shopping, restaurants and other amenities and it only has about a dozen parking spaces in expectation that many residents will not have cars.

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Manjit Bal, owner of Great West Developments, stands in front of a new student housing development on Wakesiah Avenue. Workers are putting the finishing touches on landscaping prior to students moving in for the fall semester.

Pilcher describes the building as modern and edgy, with an exterior designed to compliment the industrial-like buildings across the street at VIU. Andrea Blakeman, manager of VIU’s homestay program, said there’s a great need for more off-campus housing options. The university has just under 400 dorm spaces on campus, yet 10,000-12,000 students attend VIU each year, including between 1,200 and 1,600 international students. She said the Great West Residences are for mature

Students welcomed at orientation day School is back in session and Vancouver Island University is ready for new and returning students from across Canada and around the world. The university’s Nanaimo, Cowichan and Powell River campuses welcome more than 20,000 undergraduate and graduate students for the fall semester which starts Sept. 4. More than 700 of those students, new to VIU, will attend “Rock the VIU”, a day of orientation at the Nanaimo campus Thursday (Aug. 30). “Rock the VIU is a fun introduction to university life for first-year students,” says Tina McComb, interim director of communications and public relations. “A large committee of students, staff and faculty have planned an exciting day of activities for new students that includes an ‘Amazing Adventure’ campus tour, barbecue and plenty of entertainment.” Individual faculties host afternoon ‘block parties’ for students enrolled ◆ ROCK THE VIU a in their specific day-long series of areas. It’s a activities to introduce chance for new new students to the students to meet university is set for classmates, facThursday (Aug. 30). ulty and staff, and learn about what each faculty has to offer.” Staff representatives from student services, the bookstore, library and information technology services, student residence, parking and security, health and safety and international study abroad will be on hand to answer questions. Parents are invited to join students at a lunchtime barbecue, after which they can choose between a campus tour or attending a session to chat with students and parents about post-secondary experiences. “A family’s experience is much different than that of a student’s. It’s an experience with its own questions, concerns and anticipations,” said McComb. “VIU wants to ensure that parents/guardians have the information needed to support their student in making important academic and life choices during their first year in university and beyond. “University is a time when students grow both intellectually and emotionally. They still need support, love, and guidance. Our goal is to help parents understand what students may experience as they transition into their university careers and what services are available to assist them.” For more information about student orientation or the parent session, please go to www.viu.ca/orientation.

students who want to focus on their studies – the complex has a long list of rules and regulations that are to be followed. “It is not for party going kids,” said Blakeman. Gary Noble, the city’s development approvals manager, said this is the first project of its kind in the city, but preliminary discussions are happening with two other developers regarding student housing on Third Street and in the Old City Quarter. He said the city is happy with the location and design of the new residences,

as Wakesiah Avenue is designated as a main corridor, so the city wants to encourage mixed-use development there. “The city is hoping to see more of these projects along there and create a sort of university precinct at some point,” said Noble. Bal said about 11 of the units are filled and he has more applications to look through. He is also looking for an on-site manager.

Talal El Bakkar, owner of Aladdin’s Café on Victoria Crescent, said outside influences like government legislation don’t bother him. He’s opening a second location on Nicol Street, just a few blocks away from his current location. “We don’t really rely too much on alcohol,” he said. “When people come here they come here for the food. If they have a glass of wine, great, but we focus on food and atmosphere.” He also keeps his overhead low, doing most of the kitchen work himself while keeping one or two servers on at any given time in the 35-seat restaurant. El Bakkar does his own food prep and cooking among other proprietary duties, and he says he loves what he does. “When you open a

restaurant the thing is you can’t say I’m the owner and just go off somewhere on holidays. I have to be here from 10 in the morning to 11 at night non-stop. I do it because I enjoy it.” Ertsos, who’s owned Diners Rendezvous for two and a half years, said he’s simply had enough. “I’m done,” he said. “This was my 30th year in business and my final year. I’m never doing it again.” Before moving on to other opportunities, Ertsos predicts that in a decade’s time virtually every restaurant will be a franchise restaurant. “It’s just getting too difficult,” he said. “There are simply too few dining dollars and too many variables beyond our control out there for independents to make it.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Oily rags ignite garage fire The garage of a home in north Nanaimo was damaged by smoke and fire on Saturday. Firefighters responded to the home in the 5500 block of Lost Lake Road shortly before 2 p.m. after rags used for refinishing furniture ignited. Smoke and minor fire damage was confined to the garage and no one was injured. Rick Kwasnecha, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire prevention officer, said rags covered in oil can combust when kept in a confined space as heat builds up.

Minetown Day honours past

LANTZVILLE celebrates coal heritage.

BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Veins of coal buried deep underground lured many residents to Lantzville to work in the mines. Lantzville pays homage to its mining history Sept. 8 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. during its annual Minetown Day celebration. The event features a pancake breakfast, a parade, hay rides, a street market with local artisans, games and live entertainment. The annual Lantzville’s Got Talent showcase is back again this year, and people enjoy the performances of local artists. “The talent contest is quite popular,”

said Lantzville Coun. Denise Haime, who also serves on the Minetown Day committee. Haime said one of the best things about Minetown Days is it’s free. Admission, the rides and activities and the entertainment are all free. There is a fee for the pancake breakfast and food vendors. “You don’t have to come with a load of cash,” she said. “It really is a family

Residents spruce up Inbrief south end laneway

city scene

Fire triggered by partiers

I

SECOND PHASE of project undertaken by community Saturday. BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

South end residents along Lavender Lane wanted change. They wanted to reclaim their neighbourhood and create a sense of belonging. It began with a conversation between a few residents. They started an initiative to clean up a derelict laneway between Needham and Watkins Street in Nanaimo’s South End. The lane ran behind their backyards and residents weren’t happy with the activities going on behind their homes. Madilynn Rotar, who lives along the laneway, said the area was overgrown and it was attracting undesirable people to the area. “We thought the only way to deal with that was to reclaim the property,” she said, adding the project allowed the neighbours to get to know each other. The first neighbourhood cleanup was held in late July, with neighbours completing the second phase of their project on Saturday.

“We had a derelict laneway, and derelict attracts derelict, and we decided that was enough,” said Angie Eyford, one of the neighbourhood project organizers. She said the project is creating a huge sense of belonging and a sense of accomplishment for the residents involved. “We’ve worked really hard on this,” she said. On Saturday, residents were busy tilling soil, planting lavender and other flowers and painting fences to revamp the lane. Neighbourhood children painted birdhouses all morning to place along the fences. “It’s all about building community and a sense of belonging,” said Eyford. Brent Rotar, who was hard at work tilling soil for most of the morning, said the project is about reaching out to your immediate community and bridging the gap of community involvement. “I think it is something that a lot of communities would like to do but they don’t have a method or tool for bridging the gap,” he said. He said the project has started a domino effect and there are other residents living along nearby laneways who also want to do similar initiatives.

An abandoned campfire triggered a bush fire in north Nanaimo on the weekend. The blaze broke out near Robin Hood Park Saturday morning shortly before 9:30 a.m. about 100 metres into the woods from the end of Sir Lancelot Place. Fire spread to an area covering approximately 40 square metres by the time firefighters were able to get on the scene. Rick Kwasnecha, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire prevention officer, said crew’s efforts were hampered by the long lay of hoses – about 100 metres – through the woods to get water to the fire. “It was quite large,” Kwasnecha said. “It was human-caused, a campfire – possibly from young adults partying there – and left abandoned overnight.” He said the fire could have been much worse if it had become more established. Firefighters worked on the fire until about 12:30 p.m. and then returned again in the late afternoon to check for any remaining hotspots that might have been missed in the initial operation. Nanaimo Fire Rescue dealt with a second campfire in the bush near the 3400 block of Rock City Road at about 11 p.m. “That was teenagers with a bonfire,” Kwasnecha said. “They were there at the time. It was just and illegal campfire – same scenario, different outcome.”

Conquering cancer Thomas Gemma rides to help raise money to battle childhood illness

Thomas Gemma take a break from training for a 500-kilometre ride to help raise money for childhood cancer. CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Tuesday, August 28, 2012 Nanaimo News Bulletin

What a great opportunity to work with kids who have cancer.

BY CHRIS BUSH

THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

homas Gemma has climbed back in the saddle to take his second run at the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride. The coast-to-coast ride that starts from Vancouver Sept. 5 and ends 17 days later on Sept. 21 in Halifax is one of the worlds largest and longest cycling events raising money to battle childhood cancer. Gemma will cover some familiar ground. Over three days he will ride 500 kilometres of the 1,100-km leg from Vancouver to Calgary via Kamloops, Rogers Pass and Lake Louise. Riders cycle as two teams in a relay style, each team alternating one day of riding with one day of rest. Each rider averages about 165 km per day. Some participants of the ride cycle across Canada, while others, like Gemma, are referred to as “stage riders” who cover shorter sections of the journey. Gemma took on the challenge last year partly because he works for Sears and the opportunity was there. Plus he has been involved with other cancer fundraisers. “I’d been involved as a director with the breast cancer Run For the Cure,” Gemma said. “I sort of stopped doing it because it took so much time when my children were young. Now that they’re teenagers, I have some time again and found cycling as a fitness option. And then I thought, what a great opportunity to work with kids who have cancer and I feel fortunate that my kids don’t.” About 1,700 kids are diagnosed with cancer each year and there are currently more than 10,000 Canadian children fighting cancer or living with the consequences of cancer and its therapies. “Chemotherapy is a nasty cocktail of poisons,” Gemma said. “It actually affects kids’ development and kids end up with long term disabilities because of the chemo and so on.” One of the most moving things, Gemma said, is seeing and hearing

about how resilient children can be while dealing with cancer while at the same time supporting their parents struggling emotionally to come to terms with their children’s illness and treatment. Gemma has been a cyclist for about 15 years, but until last year he hadn’t ridden the distances he encounters on the cancer ride or experienced the level of training needed to prepare for it. He also had to train by himself without the benefit of having more experienced riders or a trainer. “I had no comparison in terms of what to expect with the other group,” he said. But the experienced riders were welcoming and helpful and quickly got Gemma up to speed on anything he missed in training. Gemma is entering this year’s ride more experienced and better prepared. He has already ridden about 2,000 km in the past several weeks of training at speeds averaging 29 km/h, which is the average speed that must be maintained to ride with the group. Training to maintain such a high average pace is hugely physically demanding and time consuming. Each rider must raise a minimum of $5,000 to participate. Last year Gemma raised $7,000 and hopes to surpass that figure this year. Last year’s ride raised a total of $5 million to fight childhood cancer and about $14 million since it started in 2008. The fundraising continues until the end of September. “I recognize that there is a ton of need for all sorts of different charities – from the food bank here, which needs our help, to every illness that you can imagine,” Gemma said. “You can’t afford to give money everywhere, but you need to decide where you can make an impact. This has huge value and that’s why I’m riding.” For more infor mation, or to donate, please visit www.sears nationalkidscancerride.com. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Sailing revamp no big surprise Cuts to B.C. Ferries three major southern routes should come as a surprise to no one. The writing has been on the wall for years that with increasing costs and decreasing numbers of people sailing between Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland, the status quo could not continue. The quasi-private corporation needed a major adjustment in the way it did business, and that meant choosing between reduced service levels or increasing fares to pay to maintain the current service level. It chose the former and will be saving close to $1 million annually by cutting 98 sailings on the Departure Bay-Horseshoe Bay, Duke Point-Tsawwassen and SwartzBay-Tsawwassen routes beginning in October. Departure-Bay-Horseshoe Bay will have 18 round trips reduced and Swartz-BayTsawwassen will have 32 trips scrapped. The biggest change comes at Duke Point-Tsawwassen with 48 round trips cut back over the fall and winter. Having that route’s last run on a Saturday at 3:15 p.m. will likely cause headaches for a number of travellers, but they can’t say they weren’t warned. Sailings on the route were often threequarters empty and there were times crew members outnumbered passengers. It’s no way to do business and changes would have been made long ago in the private sector. B.C. Ferries suggests anyone wanting to travel to, or leave the Island, use the Departure Bay or Swartz Bay terminals. Some will no doubt cry foul, arguing the ferries are a link in Canada’s transportation system and should be available anytime they choose to use it. But those same people are up in arms when ferry fares increase. It can’t go both ways. Transportation off the Island is still available, only now it takes additional planning on part of the public.

I understand the Island had a heat wave while we were gone which produced a significant thunderstorm, but we were entertained by them every night while on holidays. It was fascinating to watch the clouds roll in across the prairie, see the lightning and count the seconds before the thunderclap. While in Red Deer, we sat through the worst (or best depending on how amazed you are) storm I had ever seen. The lightning and thunder were instantaneous – directly over the house, shaking not only the windows but my wife (she is not a fan of storms) as well. As for things I didn’t like about Alberta, bugs would rank right up there at the top. We quickly found out that the family-friendly (“green”) mosquito repellent that works here on the coast, doesn’t cut it in Alberta. If it wasn’t for the hundreds of dragonflies feasting on the bugs, I don’t know what we would have done. But, by far the best thing about our trip to Alberta was finding out my stepdaughter, Krista, and her man, Peter, are going to be parents in February, making us grandparents for the second time. Now we have an extra special reason to holiday in Alberta. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Nutritional evidence lacking Unions remain To the Editor, Re: Alternative to market food costly to health, Letters, Aug 25. The belief in the superiority of organic food is widespread. That does not make it true. The Food Standard Agency in the U.K. released its report on this subject in 2009. Organic food is no healthier and provides no significant nutritional benefit compared with conventionally-produced food, according to a new, independent study funded by the Food Standards Agency. Alan Dangour, who led the review by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said, “Most studies were based on the hypothesis that eating organic food is beneficial to health. Looking at all of the studies published in the last 50 years, we have concluded that there’s no good evidence that consumption of organic food is beneficial to health based on the nutrient content.” Organic food supporters also like to vilify food from genetically modified crops. Yet, there has never been a single documented case of harm from consuming food containing GM ingredients. Even the skeptical Europeans come to the conclusion that GM foods are safe. The A Decade of EU-Funded GMO Research said, “The main conclusion

as relevant today as 140 years ago

NEWS BULLETIN FILE

There is no evidence proving the superiority of organic fruits and vegetables over conventionally produced food, says letter writer.

to be drawn from the efforts of more than 130 research projects, covering a period of more than 25 years of research, and involving more than 500 independent research groups, is that biotechnology, and in particular GMOs, are not per se more risky than e.g. conventional plant breeding

technologies.” There may be many reasons to support local food producers, but alleged superior nutrition of organic produce and alleged dangers of GM food safety are not one of them. Robert Wager Nanaimo

Walkway bylaw needs enforcing To the Editor, Middle-aged people and young children are biking, skateboarding and in-line skating on the waterfront walkway, even where the shops are. Overhearing one middle-aged mother telling her children that the ban on this was “stupid”, and more or less encouraging her children to continue riding (three abreast) was disturbing. Especially as the children seemed intelligent and quite willing and understanding of the importance of not riding their bikes there. Obviously, the only people who encourage this and continue to do it are the stupid ones. However, it is suggested that more prohibited signs are displayed and acutal fines are issued. As said, middle-aged people seem to be the big offenders, so one feels they can afford to fork out the cash. Otherwise someone will be injured and the City of Nanaimo (taxpayers) will be the ones being sued. John Scorgie Nanaimo

Refinery should be built in neighbouring province To the Editor, Re: Black Press owner proposes Kitimat oil refinery, Aug. 21. K David Black has a good idea for building an oil refinery in Kitimat, but the bitumen (which is the worst to clean up) would still be piped from Alberta through our wilderness to the refinery. This would not solve the impact of oil spills on our environment. The refinery needs to be built in

Alberta, not B.C., and then the product could also be shipped East where right now they are buying it elsewhere. Why can’t all Canadians benefit from our oil? As for thousands of jobs here as Enbridge has claimed, Alberta is always advertising for workers, so how many B.C. residents are already working in Alberta in the oil fields? Their families are here and still paying taxes and they commute. Theresa Kowall Ladysmith

Tax-free coupons for gas would encourage tourists To the Editor, In B.C., we have magnificent scenery, mountains and protected waters. In past summers, an armada of U.S.-flagged motor launches and yachts of all sizes sailed past Nanaimo on their exploration of the waters of the Salish Sea. Our hotels and resorts boomed, but fewer and fewer U.S. pleasure boats have appeared in recent years. I would estimate visits are down by about 90 per cent this year, and our tourist industry seems to be suffering as a result. Perhaps it is the high cost of gasoline that is putting visitors off. Perhaps it’s the excessively high prices of liquor or, perhaps, it is just the poor U.S. economy. Certainly things are way down compared with years past. It seems to me tourism should be encouraged, and I suggest ‘tax-free’ coupons for gasoline and alcoholic

beverages be issued to visitors at the border, depending on length of stay and means of transport. Coupons could only be redeemed at point of sale if a valid passport supported the name on the coupons. It would cost little and would benefit the entire B.C. tourist industry. A.J. Berry Nanaimo

Balanced position on oil missing from NDP leader To the Editor, The balanced position B.C. Premier Christy Clark has taken on the Enbridge oil pipeline is not only commendably tough and well-considered, it also stands in sharp contrast to the opportunistically rash stance taken by NDP opposition leader Adrian Dix. Long before any formal evidence for judging the project’s pros and cons, and its risks and benefits, had even been presented, Dix saw fit to prejudge the entire project and give it the “Dix nix” heave-ho. But why, then, has he been silent on the other major oil pipeline project proposed for B.C. by Kinder Morgan? He hasn’t given that project his “Dix nix” stamp of disapproval. On that project he’s adopted a wait and see approach, which is exactly what he criticized Christy Clark for on the Enbridge proposal. As with previous NDP leaders in this province, it seems Dix believes in rule by whim as opposed to thoughtful, consistent, responsible government. One who will say whatever he thinks will get him elected. Donald Leung Burnaby

The origins of Labour Day in Canada trace back 140 years to 1872 and a parade held in support of a Toronto union’s strike for a 58-hour work week. Back then, union activity was illegal in Canada and 24 workers were jailed for their role in the strike. An outcry of support and rally on Sept. 3, 1873, led Prime Minister John A. MacDonald to commit to repealing the law banning union activity, helping to lay the groundwork for real progress for working people. Since 1894, when Prime Minister John Thompson declared Labour Day an official holiday, working people have celebrated the gains and honoured those who fought for the rights and privileges we enjoy today. Unfortunately, the last 30 years has seen a troubling growth in inequality in our society. From the Second World War through 1980, working people shared equally in the gains of productivity with shareholders and owners through higher wages and improved purchasing power. But, from 1980 forward, while productivity increased at an even greater rate, workers’ wages stagnated and all gains of productivity have gone to owners and senior executives. Today’s middle class family feels like it is having a harder time making ends meet, because it is. Meanwhile, the rich have never been so rich. On this Labour Day (Sept. 3), however, I look forward with optimism that we are turning a corner towards greater equality. Frontline workers in B.C.’s public service are negotiating for fair and reasonable wage increases. And despite the intransigence of Premier Christy Clark and Kevin Falcon, polling consistently shows women and men across the province support these workers in their simple demand to not fall further behind or lose rights they and their predecessors fought to secure. British Columbians want a fair and equitable society, and recognize the frontline workers in our

schools, hospitals and social and government services are an important part of that society. In the private sector, workers are once again negotiating agreements that see them share in the gains of the productivity and the value of their work. Recent agreements between workers and companies like Rio Tinto and Teck Resources have put more income in the pockets of workers, and boosted the fortunes of local communities. Tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy are too often invested in overseas companies or simply held as cash, creating no local economic activity. But when working people earn more, they tend to spend it in their own communities. Just ask business owners in Trail, where employees of Teck Resources, represented by the United Steelworkers, negotiated a $10,000 signing bonus earlier this year. Trail businesses in every sector, from auto sales, restaurants and retail immediately reported a significant increase in economic activity in the community. These agreements are setting a pattern for wage growth for all working people, whether in a union or not. This is good news for working and middle class families and it’s also good news for our economy. Viable communities are anchored in a strong middle class and it was unions that were responsible for the development of the middle class. This Labour Day, as investment bankers and CEOs fight to hold on to a greater and greater share of the wealth working people generate, unions remain as relevant as they were 140 years ago when our predecessors fought to reduce the work week to fewer than 60 hours. We continue to fight for better work and better lives for all Canadians, and I am hopeful we are turning a corner toward better times for us all. ◆ Jim Sinclair is president of the B.C.

Long weekend trips a time to power down Anyone planning a small getaway trip over the September long weekend can be smart with their power and cut down on electricity use and costs.

Here is B.C. Hydro energy-efficient check list: Lights – Turn them o f f. S e t u p s o m e energy-efficient lamps on timers for security

and use photo sensors or motion detectors for outdoor lights. Refrigerator and freezer – Consider emptying the fridge and freezer completely

and then unplugging them if away over an extended period of time. For shorter trips, try filling old containers with water to improve the fridge’s

efficiency. Having an empty fridge or freezer requires more energy to cool the empty spaces. TVs and stereos – Unplug all TVs, stereos

and all related components, except your set top box/VCR if you plan to record shows while you are away. Water heater – Set electric heaters to the TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

lowest temperature. For gas water heaters, you can use the vacation setting. Air conditioners and ceiling fans – Make sure to turn off air conditioners and ceiling fans. To minimize heat entering a home, draw the blinds and close other window coverings. Appliances with clocks s – Anything with a clock – for example microwave ovens or coffee machines – uses electricity so don’t forget to unplug these appliances to diminish ‘phantom’ load. Other electronics and devices – Many electronics still draw power even when they are in an off state. Unplug all non-essential devices, like phone chargers. An average Canadian household wastes $43 a year due to standby power.

arts Nanaimo’s Jayden Holman performs at the PNE Star Showdown in the youth category. The teen went on to perform in and win the overall contest last week. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

I felt afterwards that I had just poured my heart out.

Rising star BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

A

cover of Van Morrison’s Into the Mystic has won a Nanaimo teen first prize in a provincewide competition that performers Michael Bublé and Carly Rae Jepson entered in years past. Jayden Holman, 16, entered the PNE Star Showdown contest in Vancouver with his guitar, his voice and no expectations and was blown away when he won the youth category on Aug. 18 and then came in top overall winner on Aug. 21. “I felt afterwards that I had just poured my heart out,” he said. “It’s kind of cool to have won it because [Bublé] won it.”

Nanaimo teen Jayden Holman wins annual Star Showdown music contest at Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver

His first-place finish earned him $5,000 cash and a chance to represent the Fair at the PNE at the Canadian Youth Talent Competition during the Canadian Association of Fairs and Exhibitions National Conference this November in Winnipeg. The Grade 11 Wellington Secondary School student was selected to compete at the Showdown from more than 400 YouTube entries. Eleven competitors vied for the top three spots in each category – kids, youth and adults – and the nine finalists competed for title of overall winner. “It was huge, a big stage,” said Holman. “I was very nervous, but I’m pretty confident once I start singing.” While it was a big audience

QQuickfacts ◆ JAYDEN HOLMAN wins the PNE Star Showcase, a singing contest previously won by Michael Bublé and Carly Rae Jepson.

for Holman, it is not the biggest he’s been in front of – he played Sunfest in Duncan earlier this summer, a large country music festival that features well-known musicians such as Dierks Bentley. Other events he’s performed at this summer include Canada Day in Maffeo Sutton Park, Parksville Beach Festival, Nanaimo Marine Festival, Ladysmith Days and the Vancouver Island Exhibition.

“This is my first season of being really busy and doing lots of stuff,” said Holman. He’s loved music since he can remember and even before that – his father took him to a David Gogo concert when he was three and the story goes that after seeing his interest, the drummer invited Holman up on stage to hammer out a beat on the drums. “I’ve always loved it,” he said. “All my uncles play and sing. In kindergarten and Grade 1, I would pretend I was a rock star.” Holman started putting the dream into action in Grade 6 when he learned to play the guitar and two years later, he took singing lessons. He plays everything from jazz to country.

“I’m all over the map,” said Holman. “If it sounds good, I usually play it.” Holman also writes his own songs, which he hopes to put together in an album sometime in the fall. He describes his own music as kind of pop-y but also sort of country at the same time. “It’s definitely its own thing,” said Holman. Gary Holman said his son has a natural aptitude for music that he’s combined with hours and hours of practise every week. “I’m so happy for him, to see all his hard work pay off,” he said. “He’ll play for $10, he’ll play for $100, he’ll play for free, he just wants to play.” reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:

UP TO SEPT. 3, 2012

Aries

Taurus

Gemini

Cancer

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, balance and harmony will reign supreme this week. If there is something you have been meaning to change, now is the time to get it done. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Intentions can be lost when communication is not effective, Taurus. So don’t expect someone to understand simply by your actions alone. Explain yourself along the way. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, sometimes you give off the impression that everything is going well, even when it is not. Hiding your emotions works sometimes, but this week ďŹ nd another strategy. CANCER R - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, most of the time you seem slow and steady. But every once in a while you show some passion that others may not expect from you. These sudden bursts are human.

Leo

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, you can’t change the path the stars have set in your place even if you want to. It’s best to simply accept the cards and make the most of them.

Virgo

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, speak up if you are not satisďŹ ed with your relationship. Now is the time to set things straight and make your voice heard. The other person will be receptive.

NANAIMO

LIBRA A - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you are ready to change careers or travel for a change of pace. This could be the ideal time to make your move because there isn’t anything pressing going on.

Vocalist picks up another win during fair

I

MIKAILA TOMBE sang Respect by Aretha Franklin.

Mikaila Tombe earned respect for her singing ability after winning a local contest with Aretha Franklin’s hit song. Tombe, 15, won first prize in this year’s Vocal Challenge at the Vancouver Island Exhibition, which carried a prize of $500.

Participants were given the opportunity to perform their songs on the Community Festival stage as part of the opening ceremonies at the VIEX. All finalists chosen were invited to perform their songs on the mainstage on the last day of the fair at Beban Park. The contest was formerly called Songbird. All singers, male and female, wishing to try out their performing skills

were invited and the contest was open to any style of music. Tombe attends Dover Bay Secondary School, where she is enrolled in the Academy Arts Program. This year she performed the role of Maria in Dover Bay’s production of West Side Story. Tombe also came in first place at Victoria’s Remax Island Star Search 2012 performing at a gala evening at The McPherson Playhouse

winning a free music video production. Nanaimo audiences often hear her performing at the Acme Food Co. with the band The Big Mess. The VIEX is a four-day agricultural fair held at Beban Park in Nanaimo every year. In addition to the farming and livestock displays, the fair offers midway rides, community booths and entertainment. For more information, please visit www.viex.ca.

Paralympian races toward more gold Michelle Stilwell a favourite going into third Games

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

ichelle Stilwell is, without a doubt, the face of the Paralympic Games around these parts. It’s a face that’s invariably smiling, and if all goes to plan, she may soon have two more gold medals to smile about. The 37-year-old mother from Nanoose Bay is in London this month to compete in her third Paralympic Games. She won her first gold medal in Sydney in 2000 as part of Canada’s wheelchair basketball team. She had to give up hoops for health reasons, and has since excelled on the track, qualifying for the 2008 Games in Beijing and winning gold in both the 100-metre and 200m races. So she’s a triple gold medallist. She holds world records in all her events. She’s a hall of famer and indisputably a fan favourite. And yet she won’t ease off.

Michelle Stilwell reacts to her gold-medal victory in the 100-metre race at the 2008 Paralympic Games in Beijing. Stilwell is in London to compete in her third Paralympics. She looks to defend her gold medal victories in the 100m and 200m.

shows me that the work I’m putting in is worth it, and there’s value there,” Stilwell said. She said leading up to the London Games, her training has been “absolutely fantastic.” She made alterations to her push technique, her diet, and even her race chair. A whole bunch of little changes, she said, have combined to bring

incredible results. At the Daniela Jutzeler Memorial track and field meet in Switzerland in May, Stilwell lowered her own world records to 19 seconds in the 100m and 34.08 seconds in the 200m. She keeps shaving off milliseconds, but that’s not her primary goal, she said. ◆ See ‘STILWELL’ /34

QQuickfacts ◆ PARALYMPIC GAMES begin Wednesday (Aug. 29) in London. ◆ MICHELLE STILWELL races the 200m on Saturday (Sept 1). Qualifying is at 7:51 a.m. PST with the finals at 12:24 p.m. She then

races the 100m Sept. 5 with heats at 2:24 a.m., final at 1:36 p.m. ◆ TONY THERIAULT, a mixed fours rower from Nanaimo, has his first heat at 3:30 a.m. on Friday (Aug. 31) and the finals are Sept. 2 at 2:30 a.m.

For the first pre-season game, the Nanaimo Clippers couldn’t have hoped for a much better result. The city’s B.C. Hockey League team beat the Alberni Valley Bulldogs 8-2 on Sunday night at Frank Crane Arena. “It was a pre-season game so there was sloppiness and mistakes made by both teams,” said Mike Vandekamp, Clippers coach. “We still have a lot to learn but it was nice for our confidence to get a win early like this and hopefully we can build on it.” Nanaimo struck for three unanswered firstperiod goals and never relinquished control. “We got some point shots through and they found their way in the net,” said Vandekamp. “Obviously that gave us some momentum and some confidence early in the game.” Reid Sturos scored the goal of the night, winning a race to create a breakaway, then deking the Bulldogs goalie. Other scorers were Kevin Miller, Austin Dick, Brenden Forbes, Boston Colley, Steve Hladin and David Iacono. ◆ See ‘ALL’ /34

Raiders win, quarterback makes history

JORDAN YANTZ throws 100th TD in 59-17 victory.

We needed a good, old-fashioned, Raiders-style win.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The V.I. Raiders played a complete game and they completely dominated. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team defeated the Kamloops Broncos 59-17 on Saturday in the Interior. “We needed a game like that,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, V.I. coach. “We needed a good old-fashioned Raidersstyle win.” If Saturday’s win was old-fashioned, then call it a vintage performace from quarterback Jordan Yantz. The Raiders’ passer reached a personal milestone of 100 career touchdown throws, and he did it in masterful style, going 21-for-27 for 398 yards and six TDs. “I’m really proud of Jordan Yantz,” said Blokker. “To be the first quarterback to throw for 100 touchdowns in CJFL history, I think is absolutely

amazing, and obviously he’s going to add to it. What a great game by an amazing player.” Blokker said the Broncos provided some resistance, and said one of the

reasons the Raiders were successful was precisely because they didn’t take the opposition lightly. “We came out of the gate and competed and I thought our tempo was a

One Nanaimo golf prospect was right around the pin all weekend at provincials. Zach Anderson tied for seventh place last week at B.C. Golf ’s juvenile boys’ championships in Princeton. Anderson shot rounds of 74, 75 and 73 to finish at six over par. Champion Henry Lee of Coquitlam, who finished at three under, was the only golfer under par for the tourney.

get lots of players onto the field. “A lot of guys got touches, a lot of different receivers caught the ball, four different running backs had a chance to run it,” Blokker said. “Those types of games are always fun whenever you get everybody involved.” Yantz and backup QB Kurtis Bardua spread the ball around to 10 different receivers. Matt Sawyer was the primary target with five catches and two TDs, while Whitman Tomusiak had a gamehigh 109 yards and a TD. Other players with touchdown catches were Mike Schaper, Arthur Fabbro and Dustin Pedersen. Ashton Galloway had six carries for 74 yards and Taylor Flavel and Nate Berg scored rushing majors.

Other scoring came from Mark Mueller, who kicked a 40-yard field goal, and Quinton Clarke, who caught a two-point convert. Defensively, Ash Gayat was a standout with two and a half sacks, three tackles and a fumble recovery. Rockenson Angrand had five tackles, a sack and a forced fumble. Elliot Jones also made five tackles. Ariel Fabbro had an interception and he and Anthony Bienvenue had four tackles apiece. GRID BITS … The Raiders (3-0-1) now enter a bye week and will take some time away from the field. Their next action is Sept. 8 when they host the Chilliwack Huskers (0-4) at 2 p.m. at Caledonia Park … Yantz now has 104 touchdown passes in the CJFL. Second all-time is Tony Gagnon, who starred with the Saskatoon Hilltops in the 1980s … In other weekend games around the B.C. Football Conference, the Langley Rams beat the Okanagan Sun 34-3 in the Fraser Valley and the Westshore Rebels shut out the Huskers 58-0 in Victoria. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

◆ From /32 The Clippers were pleased to see so many different players contributing. “We scored goals with point shots and traffic, we scored a couple of goals using speed, we made a nice play on the power play to score one goal, a couple of good passing plays,� Mike Vandekamp said. “So it was a mixed variety.� Brenden Forbes, a veteran forward, said he thought all four lines played really well. “It just shows how much depth there is in

If you can mix the skill with the hard work, it pays off.â€? The Clippers went with a fairly simple game plan, said the coach. They tried to play with some structure inside their own

Stilwell bringing a plan to Paralympic start line

◆ From /32 “I’m never focused on trying to beat the clock, I’m really focused on the technique and the perfor mance,� Michelle Stilwell said. “I know that if I push properly and don’t make any mistakes, it’s a flawless race, the result will come in the end.� If she’s done the training, then it will show on race day, she said. In front of 25 friends and family members in London, Stilwell will wheel to the start line with a specific idea of how the race will go. She’s won enough big races to know how to execute a game plan, no matter the environment. “If you can plan the race and race the plan, good things will happen,� she said. “Of course you have to be

somewhat flexible for the unexpected. You can’t totally let the unexpected throw you off your game.â€? She’s pretty familiar with the field of competitors she will see in London in her T52 division, and goes in as the favourite. Maybe she’ll win double gold again. Maybe she’ll win double gold again, and be even better. “If I push myself hard enough, I know t h e r e ’s r o o m f o r improvement. So I’m going to keep doing that‌â€? she said. “I always know that you can do better.â€? GAMES ON ‌ The 2012 Paralympic Games will be gin Wednesday (Aug. 29) in London with opening ceremonies. For scheduled start times of Stilwell’s races, please see page 32. sports@nanaimobulletin.com
