The future of

flight Sidney-based UVic research centre to explore technologies for unmanned air vehicles Kyle Slavin News staff

Jenner Richards foresees a not-so-distant future where any farmer in Greater Victoria could send an unmanned aircraft into the air – whenever they want – to check on the health of their crops. “The special cameras (on the aircraft) can tell you whether it’s getting enough water, whether it’s stressed out, whether it’s healthy; and by looking at that you can optimize where (crops are) worth planting, where it’s not worth planting, where you should harvest first,” says Richards, manager of the University of Victoria’s new Centre for Aerospace Research. The small centre, located north of the Victoria International Airport, will become a site for students to research and develop unmanned air vehicle “Unmanned air (UAV) technology to make vehicles can provide a it commercially accessible cost-effective solution for and available to civilians. will be looking at tasks that are repetitive, the“We airplane design, the hazardous, or that need electronics, avionics, we’re about propulsion, to be performed on short talking payload, how to do the notice.” processing of the data.

Richards says there’s currently a huge gap in supplies in the UAV sector – there’s little offered between milliondollar military drones and pieced-together hobby shop airplanes. “We’re trying to fill this huge market in the centre with something that’s cost-effective, still reliable and can be easily operated,” Richards says. And the potential commercial uses don’t just stop at farmers monitoring crops. UAVs could be used for forest fire patrols, coast guard surveillance, port security, border patrol, avalanche prevention, wildlife preservation and

management and pipeline patrols. “Over the past decade, unmanned air vehicles and unmanned air systems have shown tremendous commercial potential,” Saxton says. “They can provide a cost-effective solution for tasks that are repetitive, hazardous, or that need to be performed on short notice.” UAVs vary in size, with wingspans ranging from 50 centimetres to three metres.

Raising backyard animals for food security Fur and feathers are a topic of debate for Sidney town council Devon MacKenzie

Sidney resident Kerry Finley shows off his pet, and backyard composter, Rocky the rabbit. Finley is a supporter of Sidney changing their bylaw to allow rabbits as pets.

News staff

Devon MacKenzie/News staff

Sidney resident Kerry Finley is keen on rabbits as pets, but he also says keeping backyard rabbits and chickens isn’t only a solution to the problem of finding the perfect pet. They could also be the key to keeping your garden greener and ensuring food security in an emergency situation. Finley, who’s kept a backyard rabbit named Rocky for more than 10 years, converted his entire yard into a garden a few years ago. He and his family are now able to grow enough fresh fruit and vegetables to sustain them through most of the year and Finley said he owes much of the success of his garden growth to Rocky. “If I was able to, I would keep more rabbits because of the [benefits of the manure],” he said. And Finley also says he feels that rabbits could be the answer to future food security in a disaster scenario. “A lot of people don’t want to think about it, but in an emergency or disaster situation, rabbits could be great source of protein for us,” he said. “Often we’re told that in an emergency situation we should have three days of food and water. If the earthquakes in Japan [in March 2011] taught us anything, it was that we’re going to need more than three days of food. Keeping rabbits and even chickens could be the answer to that food source.” Although Finley openly keeps Rocky as a pet in his backyard in Sidney, both rabbits and chickens have yet to be legally welcome in the town, but that could change soon. At a council meeting on June 11, Sidney council moved unanimously to direct staff to draft a bylaw that would allow Sidney residents to own a small number of egg-producing chickens and rabbits as pets. Staff were also directed to work with Capital Regional District bylaw enforcement to draft an amendment to their contract with the town.

But some Sidney residents feel allowing rabbits in the town may open up the broader issue of having to deal with an eventual species overpopulation. “I am astounded that Sidney would consider permitting rabbits in light of [the University of Victoria’s] recent experience,” wrote Sidney resident Helen Watt in a letter to the Peninsula News Review. “Could council be unaware of the potential impact? A crystal ball isn’t required to forecast the real potential for negative impact in Sidney, the ensuing debates and costs that will be incurred by taxpayers to address such a predictable

“We’ve never enforced the part of the bylaw in regards to people having a pet rabbit,” Blott said. “As far as people who want to have pets rabbits, they already have pet rabbits, so I don’t see a bylaw change affecting that.” Blott did note, however, that the town and the CRD do have current complaints of chickens being kept in residential yards in Sidney and they do receive occasional complaints about rabbits on the west side of the town. “We do have an issue with wild rabbit [overpopulation] in the industrial area of Sidney,” said Blott. “But I couldn’t tell you if those rabbits are wild rabbits or were domesticated at some point and now wild. I wouldn’t know.” Both Central and North Saanich already allow backyard chickens and rabbits in accordance with their animal control bylaws, and Central Saanich bylaw officer Ken Neurauter said they don’t currently have any major problems with either. “We do occasionally get calls about rabbits and chickens, but they are usually in regards to the enclosures not being kept clean enough or the enclosures being located on a setback,” he said. With Sidney council on the summer meeting schedule, word on the bylaw isn’t likely to be heard until sometime in September. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

problem.” Sidney bylaw enforcement officer Keith Blott said the town and the Capital Regional District do not “Rabbits don’t just have to be pets. They are magical in the way currently enforce that they can help soil, composting and even food security. They the animal control have 10 times less carbon load than carnivores like cats or dogs. bylaw, as it applies Rocky does an amazing job of supporting our gardens. His pellets to pet rabbits provide us with a rich fertilizer that is high in nitrogen and great for and doesn’t feel our compost,” explained Finley. changing the bylaw would result Finley also pointed out that Rocky’s droppings are virtually in a feral rabbit odorless and provide his gardens with a year round source of food. situation.

Increased cougar sightings concern police Two livestock killings blamed on cougars Devon MacKenzie News staff

Central Saanich police and the B.C. Conservation Officer Service are reminding residents to be on alert after an increase in cougar activity on the Peninsula, specifically in the Central Saanich region. Last Wednesday (Aug. 21), police and conservation officers investigated several livestock killings in the Martindale Valley that were believed to be a result of cougar attacks. Seven goats at a farm on Puckle Road and a sheep from a farm on Welch Road were found dead overnight. Cpl. Janis Jean of the Central Saanich police department said there were also two cougar sightings in Brentwood Bay late in the week. On Aug. 23 around 7 p.m. a resident from Garden Gate reported a cougar in his backyard, and around 8:30 a.m. on Aug. 24 a resident on Haldon Road in

Saanichton reported seeing a cougar in the vicinity. “We don’t want to scare people and we want the public to know there has been absolutely no aggression shown towards humans from these animals. Conservation is following up and investigating the sightings … but we want anyone who sees a cougar to call us right away,” Jean said. “We’re reminding the public that cougars are most active at night and at dawn and dusk so be aware File photo of your surroundings,” she Cougars have been spotted prowling in Central added.

Tips on cougar safety ■ Stay calm and keep the cougar in view. ■ If you’re with children, pick them up immediately and back away slowly, ensuring the animal has a clear route of escape. ■ Make yourself look as large as possible and keep the cougar in front of you at all times. ■ Never run or turn your back on a cougar because sudden movement may provoke an attack. ■ If a cougar shows interest or follows you, respond aggressively. Maintain eye contact with the cat, show your teeth and make loud noises. ■ Arm yourself with rocks or sticks as weapons. ■ If a cougar attacks, fight back. Convince the cougar you are a threat and not prey, and use anything you can as a weapon.

Fewer chances to sail from Swartz Bay Kyle Slavin News staff

B.C. Ferries will scrap 32 round-trip sailings between Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen this fall and winter, making it a little harder to get off the island. The service reduction on the major route will impact periodic afternoon sailings on Fridays and Sundays, as well as some Saturday morning sailings. “We certainly have the enough capacity (to carry all passengers) with the sailings we will

sail,” said Deborah Marshall, executive director of public affairs for B.C. Ferries. Regular odd-hour service will continue, and the reduction will only impact some even-hour sailings. Two other major routes – Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay, and Horseshoe Bay to Duke Point – will see fewer sailings, too. “This is all in an effort to save dollars, which helps keep fares lower,” Marshall said. She said it’s estimated the 98 total scrapped round-trip sailings will save B.C. Ferries $1 million this year. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

OUR VIEW

Refinery idea a tough sell in B.C. There doesn’t appear to be a grey area for those who are weighing in on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. Opposition is rampant and loud, focusing primarily on environmental concerns, while supporters defend Enbridge’s project for, among other reasons, its economic potential. The recent announcement from David Black, the owner of this newspaper, for a proposed $13-billion oil refinery in Kitimat, adds a new conversation to this divisive issue. Analogous to milling raw logs instead of shipping them overseas, Black wants to add value to crude oil in B.C. A massive refinery, where half a million barrels of crude oil could be processed each day, delivers the idea of permanent employment and economic benefit for the province, instead of pumping oil sands crude into tankers bound for China. Building and running the facility would create thousands of jobs, and the area around Terrace and Kitimat would require major infrastructure improvements to accommodate the regional boom. It would also ease some, certainly not all, environmental concerns about oil tankers on the coast. As opposed to heavy crude oil, refined fuels float and evaporate. But Black is putting the cart before the horse. Even if he arranges $13 billion in financing and receives environmental permits, any refinery is predicated on the Enbridge pipeline, which remains deeply unpopular with a majority of the public and northern First Nations people. Significant economic benefit derived from the pipeline could sway popular opinion, especially people living through hard times in northern B.C., but probably not enough to tip the scales. Black and Enbridge will have a tough time convincing skeptical urban residents in southern cities that the potential of thousands of jobs in the northern oil sector is worth the risk of a pipeline leak or a tanker running aground on B.C.’s coast.

Provincial assessment already must be done with the participation of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Transport Canada, the provincial ministries of natural resources and energy and mines, and of course aboriginal communities. This is why it’s so long and expensive. And don’t be fooled into believing that a federal review would go out and count the tadpoles and caribou again. It’s only the desk jobs that have proliferated. There weren’t just two levels of duplicate review, but three. Earlier in their mandate, the B.C. Liberals exempted major projects such as mines and energy generation from local government control, citing the “provincial interest” similar to the federal authority over projects that cross provincial borders. I agree with the NDP that B.C. environmental assessment needs more resources, in particular to do the follow-up on approved projects, as called for by the auditor general. Forest management needs more money too. All the more reason not to waste resources on political gestures. –Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

LETTERS Sidney-based food bank serves entire Peninsula, not just one community Re: Thoughts on living in a ‘land of plenty’ (Opinion, Aug. 15) Recently there was a letter to the editor written by the director of community development from Woodwynn Farms claiming that there are no food banks and few service agencies on the Peninsula. As the administrator for the Sidney Lions Food Bank I strongly disagree with this statement. The Sidney Lions Food Bank services the entirety of the Saanich Peninsula from the northern most point of Deep Cove all the way out to Sayward Road, encompassing many communities, including Central Saanich. In recent years we have done client surveys and found that 53 per cent of our clients come from the Brentwood and Central Saanich area, a fair amount higher than the remaining clients from Sidney and North Saanich combined.

The Sidney Lions Food Bank will continue to assist the people in need on the Saanich Peninsula as we have since 1984. Beverley Elder Administrator, Sidney Lions Food Bank

Bible a product of interpretation, not a divine creation Re: Plenty of proof God disproves of gay marriage (Letters, Aug. 24) What the writer of this letter is trying to say is that she disproves of gay marriage. While I am impressed that she is able to quote biblical verse so well, the bible has always been a product of someone’s interpretation. As we know, the bible is not a product of divine creation but a book written by several men in a language that has long been obsolete. It has gone through several translations and interpretations. Who knows what has been

changed and/or omitted. There have been many heinous acts done in the name of religion all because of an individual’s interpretation of scripture. The bible states that we should not judge one another. We are a passionate people and in our zeal to be correct we often judge people most unfairly and unkindly. A person’s sexual orientation does not change their ability to love or be loved. The only thing that matters is that you are a good person. The bible also teaches tolerance and asks that we love one another. Instead of looking for some verse to justify a personal view, just accept each other and celebrate the diversity of the individual. In conclusion, every marriage deserves a celebration. A marriage is two people who have decided to enter a monogamous relationship. This should be celebrated. Liz McBride Central Saanich

Cyclists ought to be licensed, fees should be used to pay for paths I was visiting with my 88 year old aunt one day and she asked me a question: “Why don’t cyclists have to buy a licence for their bikes like we did when we were kids?” That got me thinking that when I was a kid in Victoria. I had a licence plate on the back of my bike just under my seat,

which my parents had to buy. So why don’t cyclists have to buy licenses now? The government is trying to promote a healthier lifestyle by building bike paths everywhere and I think that is great. But who is paying for all these bike paths? If everyone riding a bike had to buy a license you’d think there might be enough money to pay for these bike paths? Think about it. Marta Ofstie Sidney

Vision Matters Dr. Paul Neumann

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Your School-age Child’s Eyes A good education for your child includes good schools, good teachers and good vision. Your child’s eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play. When his or her vision is not functioning properly, learning and participation in recreational activities will suffer. The following are the basic vision skills used at school: Near vision: The ability to see clearly and comfortably at 10-13 inches. Distance vision: the ability to see clearly and comfortably at arm’s reach and beyond. Binocular coordination: The ability to use both eyes together. Eye movement skills: The ability to aim the eyes accurately, move them smoothly across a page and shift them quickly and accurately from one object to another. Focusing skills: The ability to keep both eyes accurately focused at the proper distance to see clearly and to change focus quickly. Peripheral awareness: The ability to be aware of things located to the side while looking straight ahead. Eye/hand coordination: The ability to use the eyes and hands together. Disruption to any one of the above skills will cause your child’s eyes to work harder. This can lead to headaches, fatigue and other eyestrain related problems. Symptoms include: losing their place while reading; avoiding close work; holding reading material closer than normal; tending to rub their eyes often; complaining of headaches; turning or tilting head and appearing to use one eye only; making frequent transpositions of letters or words when reading or writing; omitting small words when reading; consistently performing below the level of their peer group. Since vision changes can occur without anyone noticing, children should visit the Optometrist at least every two years. More frequent visits may be necessary if specific problems or risk factors exist. The doctor can prescribe treatment if needed. Remember, a school screening is not a substitute for a thorough eye examination.

New residential care facility begins construction in Saanich State-of-the-art facility will include 260 care units Edward Hill News staff

Greater Victoria seniors needing roundthe-clock care will have a modern 260-bed facility in about two years as construction got underway last week in Saanich. The seven-storey residential care building is the next addition to the Mount View Heights campus of care on Carey Road, and will replace two existing seniors facilities in the city. The $60.5-million building, called The Heights at Mount View, includes 220 residential care units and 40 dementia care units, funded through a partnership with Capital Regional Hospital District, the Vancouver Island Health Authority and Baptist Housing. Each unit is designed as a private room with an ensuite washroom and a shower, and each floor has a central living area. Howard Johnson, CEO of Baptist Housing said this is a distinct move away from dorm-

Howard Waldner like facilities built 30 years ago that may have had residents sharing rooms, or using common washrooms. “This is the state of the art, the latest in how we meet the needs of seniors in a home-like environment,” Johnson said. “It’s a setting that moves away from an institutional approach to care. It’s a very home-like environment that creates a better delivery of care.” Under the three-way agreement, Baptist Housing will operate and own the public facility, and has arranged $38 million in financing, the bulk of the capital construction costs. CRHD is contributing

$18.1 million in capital costs and is leasing the land to Baptist for 25 years. VIHA will pay annual operating costs, plus funds to pay down Baptist’s loan. “VIHA is very pleased that we can now make real progress in renewing some of the outdated residential care capacity that is in dire need of replacement,” Howard Waldner, VIHA’s president and chief executive officer, said in a statement. Unique to this facility are the 40 units dedicated to dementia care, which will allow seniors with early stages of dementia to live as independently as possible, and among people with the same level of mental acuity. Outdated care models tend to group people with light dementia with residents needing more intensive care, which only aids in a more rapid decline of light dementia residents, Johnson said. “We find that when people with light dementia move into complex care, they don’t fit in well with complex residents. Their level of care needs increases dramatically,” he said.

“(Dementia care) is an intermediate step. Independence can be maintained for a longer time and you don’t decline as fast.” The other 220 rooms will be focused on residential care, the highest, most complex level of health care for people who can no longer live independently. Johnson expects the facility to employ about 260 health care workers. Johnson said the building itself will be cutting edge, in terms of resident care and safety for its 260 staff members. Each room, for instance, will have a lift-assist machine. The Heights at Mount View will eventually replace Baptist Housing’s outdated Central Care Home and Mount Edwards Court. Both were designed 35 years ago in an era with far fewer seniors needing complex care. The Heights building is planned for seven storeys and that hasn’t changed, despite some resident opposition during the rezoning process. Saanich council argued that the greater good of the overall project outweighs concerns

over height. The former school district property is mainly surrounded by residential neighbourhoods. The 260-bed building is half of a greater project to replace 580 care beds in Greater Victoria. Earlier this year Oak Bay council quashed a plan to revamp Oak Bay Lodge for 320 beds by declining a development variance for Baptist Housing. VIHA expects to tender a new request for proposal (RFP) this year for a 320-bed building in the region. “Baptist Housing is keenly interested at looking at the RFP that VIHA will come out with but until (the RFP) comes out I can’t emphatically say we’ll be applying,” Johnson said. The Heights at Mount View residential care will join Carey Place (55 units of affordable seniors housing), Vergo townhouses (18 units of affordable rental housing) and Olympic Vista (36 units for people at risk of homelessness) on the 3.3 hectare property. editor@peninsulanews review.com

New OR opens at Peninsula hospital Devon MacKenzie News staff

The Saanich Peninsula is now home to some of the most state-of-the-art surgical facilities in Greater Victoria after last week’s opening of the new, expanded operating wing at Saanich Peninsula Hospital. Local dignitaries were on hand Thursday, as well as staff from the hospital and members from the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation, to officially open the $9.9-million, 690-square-metre addition, which includes three new operating rooms and an endoscopy/integrated procedure room. “With the opening of the new operating rooms, Saanich Peninsula Hospital will be well positioned to meet the health care needs of South Island families now and in the future,” said MLA Murray Coell, on behalf of Health Minister Michael de Jong. “The Government of British Columbia is pleased to have invested $2.9 million in the renovation and

upgrade and we thank the many generous donors and community members who have raised millions to support this project.” The Saanich Peninsula Hospital Foundation contributed over $5 million to the project through fundraising efforts in the community. “Residents of the Saanich Peninsula have expressed tremendous support for this project,” said Lorne Jack, SPH Foundation President. “Providing $5.2 million for construction and equipment is a remarkable achievement for us and we are so pleased to have modern and up-to-date operating rooms in our hospital.” Jack added one of the best parts of the project was that it was completed on time and on budget. In addition to the financial contributions by the province and the SPHF, the Capital Regional Hospital District also contributed $1.8 million for the operating room construction and electrical system upgrades. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Sidney summer market attracts from afar Devon MacKenzie News staff

The Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre recently set out on a quest to discover something a little more land-oriented than usual. Staff and management from the aquarium took to the streets of the Sidney summer market July 26 and Aug. 2 to find out who exactly made up the mass of people who attend the weekly event. “Surprisingly, no formal survey had ever been conducted [on who attends the market],� said Angus Matthews, the executive director of the Ocean Discovery Centre. “It’s one of the largest influxes of visitors to the town and knowing where the people are coming from really helps us in directing the marketing of our community.�

“We wanted to know where the people coming to the market were travelling from,� added Leshell Michaluk, the marketing director for the aquarium. “Were they coming from Victoria, were they locals? We wanted to know.� They found 34 per cent of market visitors live in Sidney and 83 per cent live in the Capital region (including the Sidney residents). Sixteen per cent were visitors from outside the Capital region and half were guests of locals. A staggering 87 per cent of all visitors had been to the Sidney summer market before and the same group said they expect to attend the market an average of 3.7 times this year. Of all market visitors 28 per cent said they expected to do other retail shopping in Sidney and 41 per cent expected to dine at a restaurant in Sidney (some doing both). Forty-seven per cent did not expect to do

other shopping or dining in the town. “We strongly support the market and look forward to improved success as the town seeks a new operator for 2013 who will do more to co-operate with merchants, upgrade the market and promote Sidney as a great regional destination,� Matthews said. The information the centre collected was shared with the Sidney Business Association and the Saanich Peninsula Chamber of Commerce. The next survey Matthews hopes to do would be an exit survey at the Anacortes ferry terminal asking visitors where they visited on the Peninsula and what they knew about the Peninsula prior to visiting. The town of Sidney is currently accepting requests for proposals to run the Sidney summer market after they terminated the Sidney Busi-ness Association’s contract to run the event in July. The market runs until Aug. 30. reporter@peninsulanews review.com

Centre aims to be at technological forefront Continued from Page A1

A UAV can fly for up to 30 hours with a high-resolution camera affixed to the undercarriage, and follows a predetermined route, directed by a nearby mobile control centre. When the UAVs are at a stage for commercial use, Suleman said clients would rent or lease the aircraft, but they’d gather data and be operated by trained engineers. Richards says the federal government’s investment will allow UVic to be at the forefront of this technology. Ultimately the Centre for Aerospace Research intends to produce prototypes for commercial and research purposes and UVic’s Industry Partnerships will help the centre file patents for inventions, and create UAV licensing agreements. “We are really looking to bring more people in from different areas, ‌ bring all those people together and design products that are tailored to the specific applications, like agriculture monitoring,â€?

Whew, an extra blanket, or resorting to a hot that was hot work. water bottle and it’s much too early for Cher has been picking strawberries that. in her garden. This sometimes happens Let’s wander out into the vegetable when we have a long, hot summer, and garden for a few minutes and decide what a treat they are. I am jealous, of what to do when we next get a burst of course. But I have picked (and eaten) energy. Maybe you should hill up soil several “Sweet 1,000,000” tomatoes around the carrot tops so they won’t and have several large, juicy “Big Beef” turn green, maybe thin the beets a bit almost ready, with more to come! more, the turnips as well, to give them I had a phone call from a woman on Helen Lang extra room to put on more weight. How Frost Avenue in Sidney who is troubled Over the Garden by the multitude of dandelions growing about picking a few ears of corn for Fence dinner tonight?

She suggested her neighbours the onions need to be turned over to expose all could dig them out (she would help) to prevent their showing up next year.

Since pickling cucumbers will be about ready to harvest, I’d like to give you a simple, but excellent recipe for dill pickles, one I’ve used for years. Mind you, you probably don’t need more than a few jars of them. How many hamburgers can a body eat anyway? You will need quite a lot of dill weed and it isn’t easy to find unless you’ve grown your own and if you can acquire enough grape leaves to put one in each jar, it is supposed to make your dills crisper.

NEWS REVIEW

Flu shot or mask, health workers told Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C. health care workers will be required to get an annual influenza vaccine or wear a mask in all patient contact areas in the community or publicly funded facilities, starting with this year's flu season. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall announced the regulation Thursday, a first for Canada. It applies to health authority staff, doctors, volunteers, students, contractors and vendors who come into contact with patients. Free flu shots have been made available to B.C. health care workers for years, and despite encouragement, fewer than half take advantage of them. The average vaccination

rate for long-term care employees is closer to 60 per cent, but Kendall said that rate is still too low and has declined in recent years. Canada's national advisory committee on immunization considers it a “professional responsibility” for health care workers to get their flu shot every year, Kendall said. The mask option is being offered for workers who have a medical reason not to be vaccinated, and to avoid disputes with employees who simply refuse. “Progressive discipline” would be imposed on employees who refuse both during flu season, just as it would be for those who fail to wash their hands or take precautions when coughing, Kendall said. B.C. is the first province to move to mandatory influenza protection, following the lead of U.S. jurisdictions where

vaccination has increased to more than 95 per cent. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control estimates that complete vaccination of health care workers would reduce the risk for patients by 47 per cent, as well as protecting the workers from exposure from infected patients. The annual influenza shot is made available around Thanksgiving each year, to prepare for a season that typically runs from late November until March. A new formulation is used each year to match the strains most likely to be circulating in North America during the winter. Kendall said he doesn't know why immunization rates for health care workers have declined. But he cited persistent myths about hazards of contracting the flu from the vaccine or experiencing other adverse effects, which he said are very rare. "Some people believe they are healthy and don't get influenza," he said. The Canadian Nursing Association, the College of Registered Nurses of B.C. and the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons all support vaccination for health care workers. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com
