Water use limited due to fall work Due to BC Hydro’s fall maintenance on the Puntledge River generating station, the Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) water system will supply water to consumers via standby pumping stations. The situation will last from Sept. 19 at 8 a.m. until Sept. 28 at 4:30 p.m., which will require stage three water restrictions. Stage three restrictions are necessary to maintain enough water in the system during this time for household and firefighting needs. During this time, residents are asked to use water only when completely necessary. During stage three, the following seasonal activities are prohibited: • Watering lawns (with manual or automatic sprinklers) or pressure washing driveways or boulevards at any time; • Filling or adding water

Positive concepts in school video Renée Andor Record Staff

Be kind. Connect. Try new things. We are more alike than we are different. These are just a few of the messages last year’s grad class from Highland Secondary School aimed to convey in their 2011/2012 Legacy Project — a music video called Together We Are Invincible. Featuring Canadian band Hedley’s song Invincible, the nearly four minute video shows students struggling with various issues teens face, but over-

coming them with help from others in the school community. Chayse Spence and Alex Leslie, 2012 Highland grads, spearheaded the project because they were touched by the teen suicides that happened last year. “One of the first people who committed suicide was actually a very good friend of ours,” said Spence. “We decided that we needed to do something, anything, and we started brainstorming. “I was trying to help other people, but it was also very much for my

BRIAN

own healing because it hurts when you lose a friend and you just kind of feel — I just kind of felt helpless, same with a lot of other people, so just being able to put our energy towards something that we believed would help somebody.” Many other students joined in and Spence noted planning and fundraising work for the project started shortly into the school year last year. A legacy committee was created and met every couple of weeks throughout the year. Past Highland prin-

cipal Wayne Friesen approached local community builder and video producer Zac Whyte to see if he would help out with the project. He jumped in and, seeing the students had a small budget to create the video, ended up donating a significant amount of his time towards the project. He also brought his friend and fellow video professional, Tash Baycroft, on as a collaborator. Whyte pointed out the video was finished near the beginning of June but wasn’t released officially ... see CURRENT ■ A2

Bridge work halts The estimated completion date for the Fifth Street Bridge work has been bumped back from Sept. 20 to Oct. 5. The City of Courtenay has received an estimate on the delivery of the critical parts needed for the repair of the Fifth Street Bridge. The delay in receiving the parts has impacted the work schedule. The latest schedule information shows daytime bridge lane closures from

Sept. 24 to Oct. 5, weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. “Our contractor has informed us that the parts will be here at the end of next week,” said Derek Richmond, the City’s manager of engineering. “This means we don’t anticipate doing any work on the bridge next week, Sept. 17 to 21, during the day or in the evening.” For the remainder of this week, there will be night ... see PARTS ■ A2

the Comox Valley water system. Health regulations require that consumer and business users be aware that the water might be turbid (cloudy) if heavy rain occurs. There may be slight discolouration of the water during and after this period. The medical health officer recommends that if this occurs, the water be brought to a rolling boil for one minute prior to consuming. Consumers using water during this time should be aware that water quality could change rapidly. It is advisable to keep an ample supply of potable water on hand or in your refrigerator during the time indicated above. Taste and odour of the water may be affected by the addition of extra chlorine while pumping from the Puntledge River. Residents living near the pump station can expect some noise from the engines while water is being pumped from the river. — Comox Valley Regional District

tive to actually change the direction of that school.” Highland principal Lyneita Swanson said the video was shown to current students earlier this week and the response has been positive with them too. “The whole idea of caring for each other, and reaching out, and we’re not alone, commitment, all these types of things that are worded in the video, are things that I think have really impressed upon the kids we have at our school this year,”

said Swanson, adding she’s heard students talking about it throughout the school. “It’s a very popular video — we can hear people humming it.” Together We Are Invincible was posted on YouTube on Sunday, and as of Thursday morning, it had over 5,600 views. Although Leslie is pleased it’s getting attention, he said the group didn’t create it to get hits online — it was created to help inspire. “The video is meant for, not only our (cre-

ators) personal wellbeing, but the wellbeing of everybody who watches it,” he said, adding, “it was, particularly, a way that allowed me to express how I wish our community could be.” Whyte noted he feels proud of the work students put in to make the project happen. “They worked so hard to get the underlying budget that we needed — they just put hundreds of volunteer hours in to raise money, and they were selling stuff at lunchtime everyday

and doing bottle drives and all these things,” said Whyte. “As somebody coming in from the outside, I was just so inspired by seeing how hard they worked and also, how close they were to what they were doing. And it was just really powerful to see that and be part of that.” The video is posted on Highland’s YouTube account called HighlandSecondary71, and can be found on School District 71’s website at www.sd71.bc.ca.

Animal bylaw protects the public Erin Haluschak Record Staff

It’s in place to protect animals from themselves, but the Comox Valley Regional District’s Bylaw 100 primarily protects the safety and well-being of the public. Derald Lewis, manager of bylaw compliance and special investigations for the Comox Valley Regional District, explained the Impounding and Licensing of Animals Bylaw is not to seize pets away from their owners, but to regulate the licensing, noise and danger of pets. “We deal primarily with dogs, but the bylaw (created in 1981) does cover any dog, cat, or other pet,” Lewis noted, who added the CVRD has a contract with the Comox Valley SPCA to look after animal control as well as provide a facility for animals. The bylaw was redrafted in 2010, and Lewis said any complaint filed must be written via e-mail or by filling out a bylaw complaint form, and they are directly referred to the SPCA. “The CVRD oversees the contract and might be involved to assist or take

CHUM AND CHAMP are at the Comox Valley SPCA on the canine equivalent of Death Row. over the file if required,” he added. Lewis said there is a process in place prior to seizing an animal, which involves warnings, ticketing and an investigation. He added there have been very few times — maybe two — when the CVRD has proceeded to a court hearing to apply for an application to destroy a dangerous dog. “We search for a resolution in between the owner (and complainant). Usually there is a lot of history, and not necessarily with the

dog. But the bottom line is to protect the public and animals’ safety.” He explained a dog is deemed dangerous when it has killed or injured a person or another animal while on public or private property, or if an animal control officer has concerns and is likely to believe the animal is likely to kill or injure. “(The bylaw) is in place for the safety of the public, and the safety of other dogs and pets. We want to ensure the well-being and safety of the public no matter what,” Lewis said.

If a complaint escalates to a point where the SPCA requires the assistance of a bylaw officer, Lewis noted an investigation is launched, and more than just the complainant and owner of the animal in question are involved. “We go to more than just two people (when investigating an incident). We go to the neighbours, go to the vets, we find out the history of the animal, and to the SPCA. “It’s not one specific incident. We don’t take action unless the evidence is there,” he said. Lewis said his job and those of other animal control officers at an investigation is to collect evidence to present to a judge if an application to destroy an animal is required, and allow the judge to make a decision based on the information collected. “(For many people) animals are their life, and it’s a great thing. But when they are threatening the safety of people and the public, it becomes a concern. It’s the owners’ responsibility to look after their pets in a proper manner, so no animal or person gets injured.” photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

This is what the bylaw actually says Under the Comox Valley Regional District’s Bylaw 100 — a bylaw to provide for the impounding and licensing of animals — Sections 10 and 11 specifically address dangerous dogs and the procedure to seize or impound the animals. The dangerous dogs section states: • A person must not own or have custody of a dangerous dog except as provided in sections 10(2) and 10(3) of this bylaw. • An owner of a dangerous dog must not permit or allow the dangerous dog to be in a public place including a highway, or in any other place that is not owned or controlled by that owner unless the dog is muzzled to prevent it from biting a human or animal

and is under the effective control of some person over the age of 16 years. • The owner of a dangerous dog must confine the dog in a building or secure enclosure and must keep the dog effectively muzzled, caged, or leashed on a fixed leash by an adult person whenever such dog is released from said building or secure enclosure. • If a person contravenes Section 10(2), the dog which attacks or viciously pursues a person or domestic animal shall be subject to the impoundment provisions of this bylaw and the owner must, upon written request of the poundkeeper, surrender the dog immediately. • At the discretion of the poundkeeper, any dog, which bites any person

or an animal, whether on private or other property shall: a) be impounded by the poundkeeper unless the dog is placed under the supervision of licensed veterinary surgeon; b) be impounded for a period of 14 days and the daily fee charges for impoundment shall be that amount set out in Schedule B of this bylaw and shall be paid by the owner of the dog; c) be disposed of if not claimed by the owner within two days after the expiration of the 14 day period. The seize or impound section states: • The poundkeeper or any peace officer is authorized as animal control officers to seize or impound

any animal that is found at large or an unlicensed dog. • If a peace officer seizes an animal pursuant to section 11(1), they must, as soon as practical, notify the poundkeeper of such seizure and cause such animal to be delivered to the poundkeeper. • The poundkeeper must receive and impound any animal delivered to them by a peace officer pursuant to section 11(2). The poundkeeper must retain in a pound any animal seized and impounded pursuant to this section and shall not release any such animal except in accordance with the provisions of this bylaw.

Here’s sampling from big amount of Web feedback Record Staff The fate of two young Newfoundland dogs from Black Creek has attracted attention from across the Atlantic Ocean. Chum and Champ, owned by Black Creek couple Edith and Jacques Manseau, have been held at the Comox Valley SPCA following seizure spurred from a Jan. 5 complaint of a vicious dog attack against a neighbouring Jack Russell Terrier. A decision about whether Chum and Champ should be put down or returned to their owners is scheduled for Oct. 18 at 2 p.m. at the Courtenay courthouse. Comments — some from as far away as England — have been posted on the Comox Valley Record’s website. Here’s a sampling: “I agree strongly about owners being responsible for their dogs. I think nine times out of 10, that’s the issue, not the dog itself. But after everything during the three-day trial, and the fact that they’re Newfoundland dogs, bred to be gentle, I don’t believe they harmed the terrier.” — Cassandra F. “I wonder why the Jack Russell and the Newfoundlands weren’t properly introduced and socialized. Seems to me if they were already ‘friends,’ there could be no accusations. Again human error causes dogs’ suffering. By the way, I do not believe the Newfies harmed the smaller dog. I believe it’s possible the terrier’s ‘prey’ drive and persis-

tence could have led to it injuring itself by forcing its own way through wire. — Valerie Y. “I have a little dog as well as Newfoundlands and she would attack other big dogs given the chance, but I don’t allow it! It’s the owners’ fault not the dogs, no matter what size they are. But as always, it’s the dogs who suffer.” — Jenny B. “This is disgusting. It is very cruel to put these Newfie owners under this kind of stress. I can just imagine how they feel. A Jack Russell would have to jump in a Newfie’s mouth to get hurt by the teeth of such a loving animal, and even then, the Newfie wouldn’t bite down.” — Sandie R. “Yes! It would be awesome to continue to have a peaceful, safe neighbourhood where we can enjoy our property and the freedom to safely walk our pets (just like everyone else has). Too bad they didn’t get the attending vet to take the stand, I’m sure the results would have been more accurate...The Jack’s little body was punctured and torn, he’s lucky to have lived...” — Lorraine S. “Any dog can be an attack dog. Saying a Newfy can’t be aggressive is not right. I think if the vet says the dog wasn’t hurt by another dog then the case should be closed and done but to say because it’s a Newfy that is being accused of attacking it must be false is wrong. All dogs have it in them to attack another dog or a person, it all depends on how they are raised.” — Amanda F.

Council gives thumbs down to hosting regional landfill Scott Stanfield Record Staff

Expanding the waste management centre in Cumberland and closing the Campbell River landfill is the most suitable of three longterm waste disposal options for the Comox Valley and Strathcona regional districts. That’s according to a financial analysis, community surveys and the findings of an engineering consultancy retained by the CVRD. The landfill expansion option in Cumberland scored the highest in an EBA Engineering Consultants assessment of social, environmental and economic effects. Expanding the local dump is estimated to

exceed $175 million over 30 years. Cost per person would be $41 per year. Its capacity is expected to last another four or five years. Expanding the Campbell River landfill over the same time span would cost nearly $190 million. Expanding both facilities would exceed $185 million. Nevertheless, Cumberland council does not support the landfill operating within village boundaries. “Council has not changed its position,” Mayor Leslie Baird said. “We wanted them (regional district) to look at different options other than landfill. But my understanding is the cost of doing that is high.”

Coun. Roger Kishi sits on the Comox Strathcona Waste Management board, which discussed Thursday the process around longterm options and a host community agreement. The board approved a regional Solid Waste Management Plan, which outlines strategies to achieve a wastediversion rate of more

Green burials considered Scott Stanfield Record Staff

Cumberland council directed staff Monday to provide a report on the concept of green burials at the Village cemetery. The motion follows a presentation from a local committee advocating green burials, where human remains are buried without embalming fluid in biodegradable caskets or shrouds. There are three green burial sites on Vancouver Island. ••• Council voted 3-2 in favour of a Kate Greening motion to include a minimum five-stage public consultation in a Request for Proposal for consultants for the review and revision of the Village’s Official Community Plan. Greening feels the OCP process to date has not included enough public consultation, with too many items going to staff and council. Couns. Roger Kishi and Conner Copeman did not support her motion. “This whole thing is going to involve public input, believe me,” said

Village CAO Sundance Topham, noting staff and council reviews comments from the public. ••• Council approved a recommendation to award a contract for the Coal Creek well development and west Dunsmuir Avenue water main upgrades to Knappett Industries of Nanaimo for a tendered amount of nearly $870,000. The contract is subject to Coal Valley Estates satisfying all requirements of its fourth-phase subdivision application, including its contribution to a funding agreement for the well. ••• Council approved designs to be painted on four Telus boxes at Kendal Avenue and

Third Street, Windermere Avenue and Egremont Street, and at Penrith Avenue and Third Street. ••• Council authorized a street closure Oct. 6 to accommodate the Foggy Mountain Fall Fair, formerly called Blackberries, Apples and Bears. The fair includes a celebration of Phase 1 of the Miners History Project at Cumberland’s museum. The project follows a series of exhibit and signage updates on the top floor of the museum.

than 70 per cent. At the previous CSWM meeting, Kishi and three other directors voted against the draft plan. “If we have to host a dump we should be getting some compensation for it,” he said. “The piece coming out of both reports is the recommendation of one regional solid waste management centre in Cumberland. “Council is not prepared to pass that when we don’t have anything concrete. There’s nothing on the table that makes it appealing to the village. Last year was the first year there were some measures put in place to address some of the concerns

control from landfills. Kishi said there are standards that call for landfill linings to prevent leachate, or drainage, which the Cumberland landfill does not contain. That said, council is maintaining an openminded approach to the issue. “We’re going in with our eyes wide open,” Kishi said. The SWMP will be forwarded to local governments and First Nations for comment before being forward-

ed to the environment minister for final approval. Kishi said the minister’s decision will be difficult if the host community is not on board. “What politician wants to force a solid waste management centre on a community?” he said. “But then the other reality is, if it’s not here or in Campbell River, where in the Comox and Strathcona regions can there be a landfill?” reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Courtenay might annex former Lannan Forest Renée Andor Record Staff

Courtenay council gave the green light this week to move forward with another annexation into the city, this one a piece of land that has caused plenty of controversy over the years. Crown Isle’s 40-acre parcel called Lannan Lands, also known as Lannan Forest, sits on Lannon Road in the Comox Valley Regional District but is located next to developed Crown Isle land in the City of Courtenay. Crown Isle requested the annexation and council directed City staff to complete the required advertising and referrals to government agencies necessary to move forward. A few weeks ago, council also moved ahead with advertising and referrals required to annex an area in South Courtenay which includes 100 properties; an area called Beaver Meadow Farms in the area of Ryan and Anderton Roads; and the first property, Baptist Church on Lake Trail Road, of what is expected to be a larger expansion in the Arden Road area in the future. All areas, including Lannan Lands, are consistent with the Comox Valley’s Regional Growth Strategy and the City’s Official Community Plan. At Monday’s meeting, Coun. Ronna-Rae Leonard pointed out Lannan Lands has been “subject to a lot of controversy over the years.” More than nine years ago, council voted in favour of annexing the land — which was a provincially owned parkland at the time — but the process was stopped after receiving enough signatures on a petition to force a ref-

through a process, with the owner, to change any zoning, develop any plans on this — so should it become part of the city, there’s another process it’d have to follow before anything could occur — but it does put the City in a place in managing their future,” he said. Leonard spoke of lost environmental attributes since the land was logged and suggested council hold off on annexation of the area. “This is an opportunity for us to express the political will of the community that recognized those values and say that ‘if you want to go forward with an annexation, this is the opportunity to seek

erendum on the issue. Then, the Province sold the parcel to Silverado Land Corporation, affiliated with Crown Isle, nearly eight years ago for just over $1 million. Thencalled Comox Strathcona Regional District had made a joint bid with various groups and individuals, but were beat out by more than $400,000. The land was logged nearly two years ago which generated public outcry. Under its current zoning of Rural Eight, two lots would be permitted on the parcel. Jordan Cook Associates’ report to council on behalf of Crown Isle

noted it would be “reasonable” to extend the existing zoning at the bordering Crown Isle property enabling development of Lannan Lands. City director of development services Peter Crawford reminded council any rezoning would have to wait until annexation is complete. “Of course the City would have to go

said he believes the land would have more protection under Courtenay’s control. “If that property was within the city, and not as it was within the regional district, I do recall that there would have been a lot more protection pieces in place as to where it was and what could

have been done with it at that time, so I have a feeling that the City of Courtenay may be the right place to express those values,” said Theos. The annexation moved forward with Leonard opposed. Coun. Doug Hillian was not present. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Award goes to hospital

We have some great unpublished rates! Call me to discuss

St. Joseph’s General Hospital’s transitional care unit project team received the 2012 Award of Merit for Top Innovation – Affiliate at this year’s Health Employers’ Association of BC, Excellence in BC Health Care Awards. “We are thrilled to have received this award. It is a wonderful recognition for our proficient and committed team of medical, clinical and support staff who have worked so hard to establish the transitional care unit to benefit the patients we serve,” says Jane Murphy, St. Joseph’s president and CEO. The transitional care unit was developed in 2010 to support the transition of elderly patients who no longer required acute care but needed an alternate level of care such as support to transition home or to a residential care facility. Without appropriate focus and care these patients’ functioning was not improving and many were becoming more frail and dependent. The solution was a change in care delivery on a dedicated unit (the transitional care unit) aimed at improving each patient’s capacity for independent living, or assisted living/residential care, by returning them to as close to their pre-admission functional status as possible. —St. Joseph’s General Hospital

Housekeeping for Homeowners. Like most British Columbians, your home is likely your most precious investment, but keeping it protected with simple home maintenance often falls behind a busy lifestyle and other priorities. Yet basic home maintenance does not require a lot of specialized skills or know-how, is very cost effective and an excellent approach to protection against an unexpected crisis and costs. Here we share some important tips to keep your home and family safe. t Prevent the possibility of a fire hazard by keeping the dryer vent clean. Clean the lint filter every time you run your dryer and once a year slide the vent out and remove any lint build up. t Run an energy efficient furnace by replacing filters at least every three months, especially for proper operation over winter. Dirty filters block airflow, lowering air quality and making it potentially dangerous to your family’s health. They also cause furnaces to work overtime, increasing energy bills and eventually to overheat, burn out and be replaced. t Prevent mold by monitoring your home for condensation. Too much moisture indoors eventually poses a health risk, and left untreated will rot woodwork. Examine your windows, checking for cracks or breaks in the seals that can easily be fixed.

HOME INSURANCE WITH

LINDA FARRELL

t Guard against water damage by looking for signs of dripping and corrosion on exposed pipes around toilets, sinks and appliances. Leaking fixtures can often be fixed with simple replacement parts like O-rings, cartridges or flappers for leaky toilets. Leaks are easy to miss, but early repair avoids costly water damage. t Make sure your gutters are clean and water run-off is unobstructed. At least once a year physically remove debris and build-up from your gutters and ensure your downpipes are clear. Blocked gutters and pipes can force water to back up and soak into the roof, walls, and even the foundation. Basic upkeep of your home protects your investment and safeguards your family. And it’s easy enough to do yourself with an idea of what to look for and why.

Development proposed on McDonald Erin Haluschak Record Staff

A new development on McDonald Road was referred to the Town of Comox’s Advisory Planning Commission following a presentation at last week’s council meeting. The proposed development from Harold Long for 1651 McDonald Road consists of 26 single-family lots, one building strata and a park dedication. The property is a 2.39-hectare parcel located at the intersection of McDonald Road and Noel Avenue. A rezoning application, development

permit, development variance permit and a 10-per-cent highway frontage exemption was submitted as part of the proposal for comment by the commission. Currently, the property is zoned R 3.3 — single-family/second suite - large lot. The new comprehensive development zone for the strata lot is proposed to accommodate the irregular shape of the property. In addition, the frontage variance is also for the strata lot; the Local Government Act specifies a minimum parcel frontage of 10 per cent of the lot

perimeter. Council may grant an exemption by resolution. The proposed strata lot will have a 16-metre frontage. ••• A crosswalk project at Comox Avenue and Ellis Street will be sent out for tender again in early spring 2013 with an increased budget. Council approved the crosswalk project as part of its fiveyear capital plan with works to be completed in 2012. The project included the installation of approximately 80 metres of concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk along the west

side of Ellis Street between Beaufort and Comox Avenue, and a crosswalk, following a recommendation of the Town’s 2011 transportation study. The project was originally sent to tender this summer with two contractors submitting bids, both projecting costs higher than the budgeted $58,000. The budget will be increased to $85,000 and retendered next year. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY Vancouver Island North receives a whopping cheque for $10,345 from the Young Professionals Comox Valley. The money raised will go towards Habitat’s six-home project on Piercy Avenue in Courtenay. PHOTO BY RENEE ANDOR

Young pros aid Habitat The Young Professionals Comox Valley (YPCV) participated in their inaugural Golf Marathon Fundraiser to benefit Habitat for Humanity on Aug. 29 at Crown Isle Golf Course — and it was a huge success. Young Professionals Comox Valley executive members Matthew Beckett of Coastal Community, Tim Trottier of the Comox Valley Echo, Andrew Rice of Rice Toyota, and Joe Renooy of MNP played 72 holes over 15 hours at Crown Isle to raise money for Habitat for Humanity YPCV Piercy Build. YPCV exceeded their fundraising goal of $10,000, raising $10,345, and will make up one of 10 teams under the JET-FM umbrella, which will be building homes with the Habitat for Humanity here in the Comox Valley. They are the first team to reach this goal. Vice-president of YPCV Matthew Beckett commented, “We thought this was a fantastic way to put us over the edge and meet our fund-

raising goal. It was tough to play that much golf but our team knew we had to do it for Habitat and the community that rallied around us to make this day happen. We hit our goal and are ready for our next community initiative.” The YPCV golf team would like to thank their major sponsors, Coastal Community, Comox Valley Echo, MNP, Rice Toyota, Crown Isle, Aero Art Inc, Standard Life, Manulife, Franklin Templeton, and the individuals and local businesses that pledged in support of this great cause. The Young Professionals of Comox Valley (YPCV) aims to promote social interaction and assist in the professional development of the Comox Valley’s future leaders. The group is open to business professionals, employees and entrepreneurs under the age of 40 who live or work in the Comox Valley.

Elder College resuming The days are getting shorter, and cooler, which can only mean it’s almost time for the fall semester of ElderCollege to start. The fall semester starts Sept. 29 with the first of this semester’s lecture series, Music in the Comox Valley featuring Todd Butler. Most regular courses begin the week of Oct. 1. An information forum will be held this Saturday at 10 a.m. in the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College, and anyone 55 and older is invited to attend and hear all about the 56 courses being offered. Each of the course presenters will give a brief outline of their course, and it’s a great way to help you decide which courses you’d like to take. The forum is from 10 to noon, and free coffee is available. Registration begins promptly Sept. 17 at 9 a.m., and you can register online at www. nic.bc.ca/ec or in person at the college registration office. You must be a member to register. This term, in addition to our regular eightweek courses and short courses (four hours), ElderCollege has added seven four-week courses which are perfect for those that cannot commit to an eightweek course. Our eight-week courses are $36.96 each, as is the Saturday Lecture Series. Four-week courses are $22.40, and short courses are $$11.20 (includes all taxes). For details about the courses, go to www.nic.bc.ca/ec and click on Fall 12 Newsletter. Newsletters are also available in local libraries, seniors centres, and at the college.

ROSEMARIE PIERCE

extensive studies in herbal and nutritional medicine, RoseMarie integrated these disciplinary practices with her pharmacy education to become Canada’s first holistic pharmacist. She is recognized as one of Canada’s foremost integrated health spokespeople. RoseMarie’s core health message focuses on the pH connection to good health. “As a holistic pharmacist, I enjoy creating well-balanced

‘prescriptions’ for good health that include diet, lifestyle, nutritional supplements, exercise and attitude along with the possibility of integrating medications when needed.� RoseMarie has a natural ability to present technical information in an easyto-understand format. Bringing a special kind of energy and enthusiasm, RoseMarie acts as a catalyst for individuals who wish to improve their health, enjoy vitality and realize their potential. Using her pharmaceutical and nutritional expertise, she has researched and formulated her own line of nutritional supplements with a special focus on pH balancing, digestive issues and hormonal health.

to women, as well as informative seminars. For details, visit www.westcoastwomensshow.com. — Comox West Coast Women’s Show

Shared ministry the topic Almost all religious communities throughout the world have a strong ethic of service to the world. They may describe it as compassion, as karma yoga, as love, hospitality, or as ministry. Even governments often call their service departments “ministries� and their cabinet members “ministers.� Comox Valley Unitarians likewise have a strong commitment to useful service in the world. This commitment connects strongly with our belief that this world and this life are the ones that matter, because Unitarians hold no fixed belief about what follows our brief time on earth. Our Shared Ministry will be the theme of the service of Comox Valley Unitarians this Sunday at 4 p.m. The service will be about how each member can exercise ministry. It will also

be about how the ministry will be shared with a professional minister who will soon be coming to provide leadership in our fellowship. All who value a free religious expression are welcome at this service at 250 Beach Ave. (Comox United Church). There will be a potluck meal following the service and a separate program for children. An all-ages Early Bird Sing begins at 3:30 and the service begins at 4. There is free childcare for the underthrees and a spiritual education program for children from 3-5 years of age and from Grades 2 – 6 which explores values, different faith traditions and the commonality of all religions.

REC CENTRE OPENS PARC officially opened last week at the Views at St. Joseph’s Hospital. The Physical Activation and Recreation Centre is a $160,000 building addition to the existing Eagleview residence. All of the funding came from donations and fundraising efforts. The space includes a gym and can be used for family gatherings and big screen presentations.

Italian dinner returning The Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial will hold its eighth annual Extravaganza Italiana Oct. 13 at 5:30 p.m. at the Cumberland Recreation Centre. The fundraiser will feature a family-style Italian dinner accompanied by silent and live auctions. This popular event has sold out every year since it began and only 300 tickets are available at $35 per person. Tables for 10 and eight may be reserved by contacting ticket sales co-ordinator John Challender at johnpegc@shaw.ca or 250-339-

4068. Challender will arrange delivery of tickets of any number to your home or office. The club has completed a number of projects in the Comox Valley since it was chartered in 2005. Its literacy project during the past year, in partnership with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, has provided a new book every month for almost 100 children under five years of age in Cumberland. — Rotary Club of Cumberland Centennial

You’re invited to celebrate diversity this Sunday at the International Welcome Event from 2 to 4 p.m. at Simms Millennium Park.

Max and family grateful for assistance from Variety With four healthy children at home on the family’s large Comox Valley dairy farm, Jay had no concerns about finding room for baby No. 5. But the worrying began when complications during her pregnancy resulted in an emergency trip to B.C. Women’s Hospital. Baby Max came into the world prematurely — his organs were not fully developed and he needed surgery to correct a heart murmur. Jay recalls, “We knew at the time that our lives were never going to be the same.” It was four months before she could finally bring Max home, and another five months before doctors were able to confirm a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. The family struggled to come to terms with the situation, because like many others who have a child who has special needs, they felt unprepared for the challenges that lay ahead. But help wasn’t far away. Max’s physiotherapist at the Comox Valley Child Development Centre suggested they contact Variety – The Children’s Charity.

“Variety paid for our van conversion,” says Jay. “This is something that is extremely expensive and would have been difficult for us to afford. But it allows me to manoeuvre his heavy wheelchair easily,

Variety paid for ❝ our van conversion. This is something that is extremely expensive and would have been difficult for us to afford. But it allows me to manoeuvre his heavy wheelchair easily …

and gives us the freedom to go anywhere together as a family.” Max is very proud to be a Variety kid, and for the past three years has done what he can to give back. This fall he’ll again be one of 13 kids championing a provincewide fundraising campaign to help children who have special needs in B.C. From now until Oct. 31, IGA stores, Marketplace

What we want

IGA locations and Bank of Montreal branches across the province will display the iconic coin boxes featuring Heartley, a great big smiling heart, and ask customers to support Variety by donating loose change. This year marks the 10th Coin Drive, one of Variety’s most successful fundraisers, that has brought in over $1.5 million since its inception. Proceeds from the Coin Drive will go towards helping children who have special needs and their families with grants for things like emergency transportation costs to out-of-community hospitals, expensive medications, mobility and communication devices, and therapeutic programs to give them the same chances in life as other children If you, your family or your business would like to support the Coin Drive, contact senior campaign coordinator Andrew Forshner at Andrew.Forshner@variety.bc.ca or 604-320-0505, ext. 243. Variety can provide a full package of materials including coin boxes and posters. — Variety - The Children’s Charity

FOR OUR KIDS this year

COMOX VALLEY CHILD Max does what he can to give back to Variety – The Children’s Charity.

No two kids are alike. That’s what makes teaching both a challenge and a joy. It’s also why each student needs – and deserves – more of our time. Teachers will be working hard to give them that time. And together with parents, we’ll be urging government to help. Years of cuts have led to overcrowded classes. Our kids desperately need smaller classes, better support for students with special needs, and more one-on-one time. Every child matters. And every year counts.

Smaller classes, better support for kids with special needs, and more one-on-one time. THAT’S WHAT OUR STUDENTS DESERVE.

They will talk about the impact on economies: about small communities alongside national parks, historic sites and canals whose economies are being hit by cuts to visitor seasons, and about small businesses across the country which are losing public service workers as customers. They will talk about the impact on services Canadians rely on: about how cuts are hurting seniors, the unemployed and veterans, and putting food safety at risk. They will talk about how cuts to environmental assessment, Fisheries, and pollution research are putting our planet at risk. This Saturday, there will be a demonstration at MP John Duncan’s office in Courtenay at 104-576 England Ave. followed by a public picnic in Simms Millennium Park. Guest

speakers, music, balloon twisting, and ice cream for the kids will be included in the picnic. — Public Service Alliance of Canada

The public is invited to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the Battle of Britain this Sunday at the 19 Wing Comox Memorial Aircraft Park at 11:15 a.m. Canadian Forces members past and present will be in attendance and on parade to mark the sacrifices made by Canadian and Allied servicemen and women who fought in the pivotal Second World War battle. The Battle of Britain, which raged in the skies above Britain and the English Channel from July until October 1940, marked a turning point in the war. With the German Luftwaffe unable to destroy the Royal Air Force (RAF), Hitler was forced to abandon all hope of an invasion of Britain. With the words, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few,” Winston Churchill acknowledged the courage, devotion and sacrifice of the Allied aircrews in their defence of Great Britain. More than 100 Canadian pilots flew fighter missions during the campaign, some with No. 242 (Canadian) Squadron RAF, while

others served in No. 1 Squadron Royal Canadian Air Force. Another 200 pilots served in the Royal Air Force’s Bomber and Coastal Commands. These missions were supported by innumerable Canadian groundcrew. The courage and honour of those who fought would become cornerstones in the development of the RCAF. The parade, commanded by Lieut.-Col. Kevin Toone of 442 Squadron will include participation from contingents representing the Royal Canadian Air Force Association, the Royal Canadian Naval Association, Royal Canadian Legion, Korea Veterans Association, Royal Canadian Air Cadets as well as a 30-member guard from the Canadian Forces. LCol Jason Kenny, Commanding Officer of 407 Squadron, will be the reviewing officer for the parade. Quality Clothing Affordable Prices Come in & Check it Out!

The Battle of Britain is commemorated annually throughout the Commonwealth on the Sunday nearest Sept. 15. In the event of inclement weather,

the commemorative ceremony will take place at Saint Michael and All Angels Protestant Chapel. — 19 Wing Comox

Series of nature talks scheduled Inspired by Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking Silent Spring

A YOUNG NATURALIST learns during a bug walk.

Lessons start early The Comox Valley Young Naturalists is a club for five- to 14-year-olds accompanied by an adult. They meet once a month for outdoor explorer days. The first event of the season will be a guided nature walk around Paradise Meadows this Sunday. Loys and Alison Maignon will

help to look at the incredible biodiversity in the area. Birds, plants, trees and ecosystems will all be discussed. For more information on the event and the club, contact Lisa at 250-871-2730 or YNCComox@gmail.com. — Comox Valley Young Naturalists

As it approaches its own 50th anniversary, Comox Valley Nature will launch a special monthly lecture series to commemorate and honour Rachel Carson’s launch of Silent Spring. Fifty years ago on Sept. 15, 1962, Carson’s tale of greed and hubris, helped launch the environmental movement. To commemorate this event, the CVN lecture series will focus on: Women in Environmental Work featuring one-hour lectures by B.C. women professionally involved in environmental studies and earth sciences. In keeping with CVN’s own commitment to the restoration of Garry oak ecosystems in the Comox Valley, the first speaker will be Kathryn Martell (MSc.). The Garry Oak Ecosystem Recovery Team’s conservation specialist will give a PowerPoint lecture entitled Restoring Western Bluebirds to Garry Oak ecosystems this Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtenay.

BLUEBIRDS HAVE BEEN reintroduced into the Comox Valley. PHOTO BY BILL PENELL Drawing on her considerable conservation experience with the Land Conservancy of BC and the Habitat Acquisition Trust, and on climate change

adaptation has placed her in the forefront of the Bluebird Recovery Project. Western bluebirds are representative denizens of Garry oak ecosystems.

Unfortunately, together with the rapidly vanishing remains of the ecosystems, western Bluebirds disappeared from southern Vancouver Island in the early 1990s. This summer, Martell and the Garry Oak Ecosystems Recovery Team (GOERT) successfully reintroduced two nesting pairs. This project is of interest to Comox Valley naturalists and the public at large because it is a model of responsible artificial bird conservation, and the complexities involved. Martell’s talk promises to be an opportunity for the public to engage in the Valley’s own Garry oak ecosystem recovery and its future. CVN activities this weekend include a free public walk at Bear Creek Park on Saturday with Art Martell and Dave Robinson. Participants should either meet at the Old Church Theatre on Harmston at 8:15 a.m. or at 9 at the park entrance. Interested parties should contact Art Martell at 250334-2979. For more information, visit http://comoxvalleynaturalist.bc.ca or phone Loys Maingon at 250-331-0143. — Comox Valley Nature

Elves require new home Christmas is only four months away, and Santa’s Workshop needs to be up and running in two months time. This year, Santa’s Workshop is in need of a location in which to run this much needed non-profit activity. Without a home, the workshop can’t survive. Santa and his faithful elves need a building with approximately 6,000 square feet, with sinks, hot water, hydro and some parking. When donated, gently used toys arrive, the elves need to clean, sort, package and arrange them, along with all of

the new items. Then they are ready for viewing and choosing. This society is a non-profit organization that, for more than 30 years has been helping to make Christmas a happy time for many children and families in the Comox Valley. The group provides new and gently used toys for children. Last Christmas season, Santa’s Workshop was happy to provide for 331 families and 699 children. If you can help out with a ‘home’ for the workshop from Nov. 1 until Dec. 31, call 250-334-2382. — Santa’s Workshop

WOMEN’S BUSINESS NETWORK members were joined by firefighters at their year-end celebration.

Women assist local charity The Comox Valley Women’s Business Network (CVWBN) yearend celebration turned into a fun and fantastic fundraiser for the Today ‘N’ Tomorrow Learning Society. The women’s networking group held a casino night at Longlands Golf Course in Comox, and brought in members of the Courtenay Volunteer Fire Department to staff the gaming tables and offer some gambling instruction to those new at the games. A $500 donation for the firefighters’ time will be given to the society, which oversees the Young Parents Program at Vanier Secondary and helps young moms (and dads) complete their high school education. “We couldn’t have asked for a better night,” says outgoing WBN president Jenny Deters. “The theme was glitter and glamour and our members brought out everything from their rhinestone tiaras to their most sparkly dresses. The firefighters were an

added bonus. “Even though we are a networking group, connecting business women with other business women in the Comox Valley and helping each other grow our businesses, a big part of what we do is give back to the community,” continues Deters. “Asking the Courtenay Volunteer Fire Department to come and help was a natural fit. They help out at events throughout the community in return for a donation they can give to other organizations.” While the WBN casino night was billed as the year-end celebration event, this month’s meeting Sept. 13 formally ended the 20112012 year. The new membership year starts in October, and the WBN is planning an exciting year of programming. To inquire about the schedule, or to become a member, contact president Tara Laderoute at 250-338-6322 or sales@ engrave-it.ca. — Women’s Business Network

Support group helping Comox Valley people in pain The Chronic Pain Support Group is hosting a talk and demonstration by Penny Scott and Sharon McCann, registered clinical counseling hypnotherapists and pain management therapists.

Penny and Sharon will debunk the myths of hypnosis and explain how this powerful tool can help with relaxation and reduce discomfort. The practice of hypnosis involves deep relaxation to

assist in letting go of resistance to sensations of discomfort to decrease tension, which in turn, decreases pain. Hypnosis can also be used to alter how an individual perceives pain.

There are many more benefits to hypnosis, including giving people more control in promoting their well-being. Come and learn how! It happens Sept. 18 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the

Comox Valley Nursing Centre at 615 10th St. in Courtenay. Seating is limited. Please call 250-331-8504, extension 68415 to register. — Comox Valley Nursing Centre

The Comox Valley Horticultural Society welcomes Minter on Sept. 17 at the Filberg Conference Hall in Courtenay — the usual place but at a different time. Brian is offering a sale of exotic plants at 6 p.m.; the lecture starts at 6:45. Tell your friends and come early for the lecture, as seating may be limited. Members are reminded to bring your membership cards to show at the door. Non-members are welcome for a $5 fee.

when tension arrives, so does defensiveness. If you catch yourself using a tone of voice that you do not mean to, simply stop, take a deep breath, and continue what you were saying in a controlled way. Finally, active listening involves emotional awareness. Our own emotions influence the way that we perceive other people’s words, and direct the way that we use our words.

necting on an emotional level is key to a healthy, strong, growing relationship. Practise listening to your partner and affirming the emotion that he or she is expressing. Sometimes the most powerful thing is just someone taking the time to acknowledge how we are feeling. If you wish to ask a question of the counsellors, for a response in future columns, e-mail them at info@pacifictherapy.ca. Consult a Counsellor is provided

Contractors also began work on Monday, September 10 on a storm drain project on the Old Island Highway, near the Lewis Centre. As much work as possible will be done at night. The contractor will be implementing a traffic management plan which will work in conjunction with the 5th Street Bridge plan. The work has been scheduled now to ensure completion before the asphalt plant closes for the season. During any evening work on the 5th Street Bridge, between 8 pm and 5 am, traffic will be single-lane alternating in both directions. Contractors have encountered delays in the 5th Street Bridge project, which will result in work extending past the original September 20 completion date. Crews are waiting for delivery of the elastomeric joints – the flexible couplers that connect the bridge to the bank on either side.

Development cost charges (DCCs) are funds collected from land developers, including homeowners applying for building permit or subdivision, by local governments to offset part of the infrastructure expenditures incurred to serve new development. The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is recommending an increase to sewer DCCs in the City of Courtenay and the Town of Comox. This increase will partially fund upgrades to the sewer system such as: increased pumping capacity, re-routing of force mains, increased treatment capacity and increased bio-solids removal and processing capacity. DCCs are recommended to increase from the current charge of $2,470 to $5,980 for a single family lot. Similar increases are also recommended for other development categories. An increase in DCCs also translates into an equivalent increase in capital improvement cost charges (CICCs). CICC’s are charges to property owners that are brought into municipal boundaries. One of the guiding principles in determining development cost charges is that the local government provides adequate opportunity for meaningful and informed input from all stakeholders. The CVRD will host an information meeting related to this proposal increase on Monday, September 17, 2012 at 3:00p.m. in the CVRD boardroom - 550B, Comox Road, Courtenay. If you cannot attend, please provide any and all feedback on this recommended increase to Karen Garrett, branch assistant, at the Comox Valley Regional District at kgarrett@comoxvalleyrd.ca by no later than September 18, 2012. www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/sewerdcc

If you are tired after a long day and your partner tries to talk to you about making an important decision, you may not be a very good responder or listener. Sometimes it is best to take stock of your own emotional state and postpone a conversation, if possible. If that is not possible, you can at least tell the other person how you are feeling so that they can be aware of the state in which you are entering into the conversation. Additionally, good listening skills allow you to not only hear the words that your partner is saying, but also to understand the emotion behind your partner’s words. Con-

matically thinking they know exactly what the other person meant. Do not assume that your understanding of the situation is correct. Thirdly, if you think you understand what your partner is saying, take the time to repeat back what you heard. This will both show your partner that you were, indeed, listening, and allow him/her a chance to clarify if you misunderstood something that was said. Secondly, pay attention to the “unspoken” part of listening — body language, tone of voice, and use of words. Both the listener and the speaker convey so much by the way that they hold their bodies. A tight, tense body on the part of the speaker sets the stage for a tense conversation, as the listener will often feel like he is under attack. On the other hand, a bored, limp, disinterested body on the part of the listener, conveys the idea that what the speaker has to say is not important. Keep an open posture as much as is possible and be aware of what your body language may be conveying! Likewise, tone of voice and choice of words convey the emotion behind a conversation. Tools such as sarcasm, swear words, sighs, and even sharpness in the voice can bring tension into a conversation. And

Cliffe Av e.

“When I try to talk to my partner, it is like he doesn’t hear anything I am saying. He is always distracted and does not make eye contact. I end up feeling angry just for trying to talk to him about my day.” One of the most common complaints brought to counselling by couples is that they are not able to communicate effectively. Whether it’s a matter of distraction, misunderstanding, or conflict, somebody is left feeling not heard. Fortunately, there is hope when couples present this as a problem in their relationship because, ultimately, they are seeking the same thing. Both men and women want to be heard and acknowledged in what they are saying and how they are feeling, and most people will agree that they also want to support and love their partner by being a good listener. Listening is one of the greatest tools of effective communication, but it is a skill that takes practice. True listening causes both partners to feel valued and it can be monumental in adding depth to relationships that are struggling. To listen better, there are some practical things you can do. First of all, practice keeping eye contact when you are speaking to your partner. This is a visual aid that shows that you are committed to hearing what the other person has to say. This will also help you pick up on things, such as body language, that you may miss if you are not looking. Secondly, ask questions. Clarify if you are unsure of what your partner meant by something that was said. Many people jump to conclusions by auto-

Procter vowed to spend all nickels Five years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: There’s an easy way and there’s a hard way that Gas N Go owner Wayne Procter said he’ll get his gas station on Comox (Dyke) Road — and from where he stands, the route is up to the Comox Strathcona Regional District. “I’m confident we will eventually get it, but I guess you’ve got to fight for what you believe in,” says Procter, “I’ll spend every last nickel on this and I have a lot of nickels.” Fifteen years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: Local pro wrestling fans were rejoicing with the announcement that Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling is launching its Island Invasion Tour right here in Courtenay.

Hospitality Community comes together The Comox Valley Hospitality Community is coming together Tuesday. Anyone with an invested interest in the tourism and hospitality industry is welcome to attend. The goal of the meeting is to support the philosophy of businesses working together to ‘make a bigger pie’ by co-ordinating, networking and joining parallel marketing strategies and initiatives with all tourism and hospitality businesses big and small. As a group we thought it was important that we share information about businesses and events in one place. Darcy Lefebvre is a marketing and communication strategist as well as the founder of Aboutcomoxvalley. com. Lefebvre will offer a demonstration on the new website and how the tourism and hospitality sector can use it as a free tool to market themselves and all the wonderful things the Valley has to offer, such as Goose Spit. After the presentation, Tricia St. Pierre of Locals Restaurant will lead a brainstorming session on how we can work together as a community to increase the exposure of the Valley. The goal of this

group is to be solutionfocused and to co-ordinate ideas in a positive and productive way. The meeting is from 3-4:30 p.m. downstairs

Marketing: What’s in a word? Expo booth space available While there is no clear record that pinpoints when the word marketing was first used, my research indicates it was in the early 1900s that it was working its way into the business vernacular. One of the first known books to use the word marketing is Marketing Methods and Salesmanship: Modern Business written by Ralph Starr Butler and Herbert F. Debower in 1914. In the book’s introduction they alluded to the fact that the word marketing was becoming more popular. They also put forward the beginnings of a definition: Marketing methods, in a sense, are inclusive of everything that is done to influence sales. This basic definition has not changed nor have the methods. The Canadian Marketing Association defines marketing as a set of business practices designed to plan for and present an organization’s products or services in ways that build effective customer relationships. Merriam Webster’s defines it as: 1. The process or technique of promoting, selling and distributing a product or service. 2. An aggregate of functions involved in moving goods from producer to consumer. However, while the basics have not changed the way we deal with the dynamics has. The most obvious is the business environment. Today’s business world operates at a far greater pace than could have been imagined at the turn of the century. The products, the services, manufacturing and new technology have dramatically altered the face of business. Most telling is the speed at which decisions have to be made. What once took days

IT’S YOUR BUSINESS

SMITH or weeks is now being decided upon in minutes and seconds. Perhaps most important of all are the methods of communication and the ability to build relationships at a level unprecedented in history. With what is available today, marketers can pinpoint with a certain degree of accuracy who their best prospects are and how they can reach them. Here are a few definitions of some of today’s business concepts that use the word marketing. They will give you an idea of the complexity of coming up with a marketing strategy to reach today’s consumer. Outbound marketing: This is what the majority of businesses use today. It is the traditional method of reaching out to potential customers including those who are not even actively looking

for a product or service. Inbound marketing: This is focused on developing strategies that help people who are looking for your product or service to find you. The best example of this kind of marketing is search engine optimization that is becoming so critical for marketers who rely on the Internet. Niche Marketing: The emphasis here is to develop a product or service that no one else is offering and focus the company’s efforts on catering to a select group of consumers. This is often the best route to take in a highly competitive market. Guerrilla Marketing: This can be termed as unconventional marketing where the budgets are small and success relies on timing, energy and doing something unusual to grab people’s attention. Affiliate Marketing: This is simply joining forces with another non-competitive company or companies whose target audience is similar. It stretches

V9N 2Z7 www.comoxvalleyrecord.com editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com The Comox Valley Record is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder. If talking with the editor or publisher does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, you may contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2R2. For information, phone 888-687-2213 or go to www.bcpresscouncil.org

Big job for new cabinet You have to give B.C. Premier Christy Clark credit for hanging in there. After winning the leadership campaign, Clark has been snubbed by those who ran against her, including former finance minister Kevin Falcon and education minister George Abbott, among others. She spent her first year in office trying to mend party fences while garnering virtually no support from the high-profile politicians who backed up her predecessor, former premier Gordon Campbell. Without question, she has been hung out to dry by the very people she relied on for support. But now most of those people have jumped ship, giving Clark an opportunity to build her own team. In a cabinet shuffle last Wednesday, Clark rewarded those who remained loyal with prominent positions ahead of next May’s election. Perhaps the phoenix can rise from the ashes with appointments like Mary Polak, who will take on the transportation portfolio and Stephanie Cadieux, who takes on the tough role of overseeing the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Comox Valley MLA Don McRae inherits the challenging portfolio of education that brings with it a still-simmering labour dispute involving the BC Teachers’ Federation. Clark’s cabinet is a major shuffle step away from the Campbell government, a move that just might give her party a fighting chance in the next election. The next eight months will prove very important for this new Liberal government, but things will have to go exceptionally smoothly, as the public will have little patience. The public’s hatred of policy left over by the now-departed Liberal politicians continues to wane. However, with the NDP poised to reap the benefits of Liberal failures, this government will need to prove consistently over the next few months it is up to the task of running the province.

Shame on speeders who have forced a group of Cumberland neighbours to band together in an attempt to make their neighbourhood a safe place.

Who voted what on campsite? Dear editor, What a pleasant surprise to hear Mayor Jangula openly declare on TV where he stands on the Maple Pool issue, announcing that he is against the City’s lawsuit and voted to call it off. Congratulations, Mayor Jangula, for this show of courage and accountability. Some of our councillors have told us that they can’t tell us anything about what they are doing on our behalf, because most of their meetings take place behind closed doors and they cannot legally disclose anything that happens in these secret meetings. But obviously if the mayor can tell us how he voted on the Maple Pool issue, it must be legal to do so and the councillors could do so if they wanted to let the voters know what they do “in the dark,” so to speak. As I think about this “legal”

issue, it seems clear to me that all our City councillors now have a duty to declare openly where they stand on the Maple Pool issue. I do not want them to disclose any details about secret business, including any arguments about the Maple Pool lawsuit. But I do now think we have a right to expect that each of them let us know where they stood on the issue when a vote was taken.

If they have a legal right to disclose their vote, do they not have a moral obligation to do so? This community clearly supports Maple Pool; we have a legitimate interest in determining which councillors are standing up for the community’s wishes and which ones are voting against the interests of the community. Having said that, now that we know Mayor Jangula voted for Maple Pool and against the lawsuit, it is perhaps not too difficult to figure out how the remaining votes were cast. If Ronna-Rae Leonard and Doug Hillian voted consistent with their reputation for social justice, all the other four councillors must have voted for the lawsuit. Let us remember their names when the next election rolls around. Linda Foster, Courtenay

Let’s crack down on drug houses Dear editor, Having one time been homeless due to circumstances beyond my control, I am quite upset by a few narrow minded people on the Courtenay council. To me this is a mean-spirited action against low-income people who are trying to live on very limited budgets and the owners of Maple Pool should be complimented for their efforts to provide places for these people to live. I firmly believe that the Courtenay council should be dealing with the local RCMP on a=nother more important and in essence a life-saving matter. Both the council and RCMP have known for years the location of drug houses in the Valley and have not done anything to close them down or move them completely out

of the Valley. Such places as the, as it is known, “crack shack” on Headquarters Road and a place on Sixth Avenue that has had numerous complaints about drug use, selling and fights, etc. There is even a drug house in an alley next to a day care centre. So, instead of trying to evict low-income people from their homes, how about evicting the dealers from the Valley? How many more young people have to get hooked on drugs and/or die before something real is done that would help all citizens of the Valley? So leave the poor income people alone, city council, quit wasting taxpayer money on a mean-spirited and totally uncalled-for lawsuit and do something worthwhile that will

benefit all and remember you are all up for re-election and I personally will vote for any who stand up for all the people, not just a select few. V. Jones Courtenay

OPINION

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Holding dogs not protection Dear editor, I was at the SPCA Paws for a Cause and I am so disappointed in the “crap” surrounding the two Newfies, Chum and Champ, and how little we in the Valley have rallied around to protect them, myself being at the top of the list. First off, nobody can talk to or ask any questions of the SPCA, as all one gets is anger and very loud voices. I do wish they could speak to concerned citizens as humans and realize that these two dogs are our concern. Secondly, if we speak to the regional district, we get totally contradicting stories to that of the SPCA. Doesn’t SPCA stand for the protec-

tion of animals? So, how does holding these dogs for over seven months mean protection? I know the SPCA folks say, “Oh, they have it so good up here — all kinds of love and a big pen!” They go on to say what bad shape these dogs were in when they came to the shelter, two baths and a grooming! Oh, my! My dog needs a bath and a grooming. Does that mean he is neglected? These dogs are farm dogs, not show dogs! I know the SPCA will say and have been saying, “We are only contracted to hold these dogs; it’s not our doing. If they are not on line with what is happening to

Chum and Camp, then they should get off their duffs and start fighting to protect them! As to the owners of the Jack Russell, why have they not stood up to try to stop this? Is this really what they want for these two purebred Newfoundland dogs? Maybe they can help to put the brakes on this injustice being forced on Chum and Champ and the Comox Valley. Not to mention the tax dollars being spent on this case. We need to pray the judge will send these two dogs home, or where they will be best cared for. Jill Kruger, Comox Valley

Mending patient appreciative Dear editor, After a near-fatal mountaineering accident in Strathcona Park on Aug. 2, I was admitted to St. Joseph?s Hospital in Comox for a five-day stay. I received wonderful care from everyone involved in my recovery: from the Search and Rescue crew that choppered me back to Comox; the ambulance attendants who escorted me to the hospital

from the air-force base; the doctors, nurses, and all the other staff in the hospital. As a result, I’ve once again learned how a simple action can have a profound effect on a person’s life. Less than three hours after my accident, I was admitted to the trauma ward in the hospital and was immediately attended to by a doctor. He reassured me with his matter-of-

fact, calm demeanor, as he explained that I had broken ribs six to 11, twice each, which would require a drainage tube inserted between my ribs. The next thing I remember, was hearing a quiet voice saying, “Hi,” and opening my eyes to see a wonderful smiling face. Then, in ICU, I remember one night nurse connecting with me by telling me that she and her husband

Pensioners squeezed out Dear editor, I am responding to the article in the Aug. 24 Record regarding Courtenay wanting to annex the area west of Arden Road in the Webdon, Carron Road area of regional district C. In 1998, Courtenay annexed the east side of Arden Road under the excuse that septic systems there were failing. The majority of those homes are still on their septic systems 13 years later. As a result of this annexation, there was at least one widow who, with her husband, had built their home and expected to live in it for the rest of her life after he passed on. Due to the huge increase in taxes, she was forced to sell and

move. In our block alone, there are 10 homes out of 19 with owners on pension. None of us have the $25,000 to $30,000 (plus) mentioned in the article [plus up to triple the taxes per year] that being annexed into Courtenay could cost! And for nothing more than we have now! Of 104 homes in our area I know of none with failing septic systems. There is no reason for us to be taken in by Courtenay unless some developer wants the area which is against regulations. Under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms we have the right to “life, liberty and security.” Pensioners’ security is in their homes! D. Beeler, Area C

Expect signs on our roads Dear editor, Recent comments regarding the number and frequency of bike lane sign placements in Comox has led to a couple of letters commending the Comox mayor and council on being proactive regarding bicyclists. Missing the point entirely, they proceed to lament the treatment bikes have been given in the past and look forward to even more acceptance in the future. As one who has brought attention to the large number of no-parking signs and bike lane signs, please allow me to categorically state that I am pleased as punch to have my tax dollars creating bike lanes, bike safety and bike awareness. I can think of far worse or more frivolous things they could be spending our collective dollars on and am thankful they don’t. No, the concern isn’t bike lanes or bike acceptance, it is the sheer number of signs. If you go east on Comox Avenue and turn south on Rodello and then east onto Beaufort and are able to pause a moment,

had hiked the West Coast Trail for their honeymoon, and I remember her squeezing my arm when I left ICU. Regrettably, though, I was moved from ICU after two or three nights. I only say regrettably, though, because in ICU I received more personal care. On Ward 3, the nurses and all the other staff were just as caring. In fact, I even liked the food! I could pick my own menu every day, and I finished every delicious morsel. I have nothing but great things to say about the care I received, right from the search and rescue crew, the ambulance attendants, to all the hospital personnel, and I am happy to say that I will make a full recovery. I want to thank these people for helping me remember how it’s the little things we do that make such a big difference to other people. John Young, Nanaimo

there is a spot there that has you surrounded by 11 signs. No-parking and bike lane signs. Some are facing away from you but there are 11. Proceed down the road a bit and there are areas in which you can see a painted on the roadway bike lane sign out both your windshield and rear view mirror at the same time as you have metal bike lane signs on the roadside. As well as the no-parking signs that seem to multiply as fast as our deer. It is visual clutter that you simply do not see in other communities. They have cyclists too, I expect. I expect signage and the general motoring public does, too. What my complaint is all about is the number of signs. Period. The signs that welcome you into Comox — the ones that say “Expect deer on our roads” will need an update soon. “Expect deer, no parking and bike lane signs on our roads.” Glenn Countryman, Comox

THE WHITE WHALE The iconic Comox Glacier looms over the Comox Valley as it has for so many years. Known to the local K’ómoks people as Queneesh —the White Whale — the glacier is renowned in their legends. According to lore, the ancestors of the present K’ómoks people tied their canoes to the glacier and thus survived a great flood.

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Friday, September 14, 2012

Elderly parents can cost you sleep Elaine hasn’t slept well for the past week, so when the phone rings at 5:30 a.m., she doesn’t wake with a start. She’s not surprised when the person on the other end is the night care support worker at the assisted living facility where her Mom lives. This is the fourth call from the facility Elaine has received in the past two weeks. “Elaine, I’m sorry to bother you again but your Mom was sent to hospital again this morning. She fell while trying to get out of bed and to the bathroom. She’s going to need stitches on her face where she hit the dresser.” When a senior falls, it can be extremely harmful, physically and psychologically. Falls are caused by a lack of balance or an inability to recover balance. There are several factors contributing to falls in the elderly. Some are age-related, others are due to physical and mental health issues and at times tripping hazards in the environment are the culprit. Falls can result in

injury, chronic pain, a diminished quality of life and, in severe cases, death. According to Statistics Canada (2006), just under half of all seniors experiencing a fall sustain a minor injury and up to a quarter suffer a more serious impact including fractures or a sprain. Half of seniors who have a hip fracture due to a fall aren’t able to regain their pre-fall abilities. Falls are the leading cause of hospitalizations for seniors related to an injury and the sixth leading cause of death. Women are more likely to fall than men. Psychologically, falls can literally be paralyzing for seniors. Many seniors who experience falls become very fearful, lose their independence and have increased confusion and depression. When seniors become fearful, they often start to restrict their activities. This, however,

PREHUNG DOORS Although there are exceptions, the rough door opening should be 2’’ wider and 2.5’’ taller than the door. Thus, the correct rough opening for a 2’6’’ door would be 32’’ x 82.5’’. The extra space allows room for the door jambs and a little wiggle room to accommodate rough openings that are out of plumb. Rough openings should be the same for both interior and exterior doors.

SINGER JENNIFER WARNES performs Sept. 29 at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Songbird Warnes returning to sing in Comox Valley Paula Wild Record Arts

“I believe poetry, prayer and song allow us to access the deeper parts of ourselves and take us to a place that is beautiful, lovely and rich,” Jennifer Warnes said in a recent telephone interview from her home in southern California. “When I sing, I’m not fixated on musical styles, popularity or personal expression. I’m more interested in what the music is causing in the heart of the other person.” On Sept. 29, High Tide Entertainment will present An Evening with Jennifer Warnes at the Sid Williams Theatre. The award-winning American singer/songwriter is known for her rich distinctive voice which Leonard Cohen once referred to as “…like the California weather, filled with sunlight. But there’s an earthquake behind it.” Many folks are familiar with

her interpretations of work by Cohen, James Taylor and Buffy Sainte-Marie, as well as from the soundtracks of An Officer and a Gentleman and Dirty Dancing. But Warnes isn’t much interested in what’s happened in the past. “I have no nostalgia and tend not to look back,” she said. “Looking back calcifies life; looking forward energizes it. As for my career, it’s just a job I do every day. It’s like what’s next for breakfast, lunch or dinner? When I’m working it’s like shovelling dirt into a hole. My relationship with the audience is the biggest thing for me.” What Warnes is interested in is music by other performers. “I like to listen to what’s happening now,” she explained. “I want to know what Bob Dylan and Ry Cooder are doing and enjoy listening to opera singers who have managed to hold onto their voices. And I’m interested in Carminho,

It’s more about the energy behind the song than the notes or meaning. If the energy is there, I like it no matter what it is. If the energy is there, everything falls together beautifully.

❞Jennifer Warnes

a Portuguese fado singer. “It’s more about the energy behind the song than the notes or meaning,” Warnes added. “If the energy is there, I like it no matter what it is. If the energy is there, everything falls together beautifully.” Right now Warnes’s energy is focused on the Wrecking Crew, both a movie and book commemorating a group of Los Angeles studio musicians who played background sound for hits by the

Beach Boys, Sonny and Cher, the Mamas and Papas and other wellknown bands in the 1960s. “They were playing hits when I started out,” said Warnes. “I revere the colleagues I’ve worked with in all different ways. When you’re sharing your soul with sound, you’re creating a relationship of your most essential selves.” Warnes also has a new CD in the works and is looking for partners. “The music industry is in such disarray,” she said. “Things have changed so much. There’s still tons of good music out there and people want to hear it. But in order to make it happen musicians need partners. “Change happens every 30 to 40 years; that’s normal,” she added. “But right now the music industry is in a state of reconstruction and it will take time to work itself out. “We need a system that allows great singers and great musicians

to create music that touches our hearts and souls — that give us something to feed off and help us in our day-to-day lives.” Warnes is looking forward to returning to the Comox Valley, which she called “one of the prettiest pockets on the globe. The mountains, water and trees are unbelievably gorgeous. Everyone that lives there is so lucky.” An Evening with Jennifer Warnes will feature a collection of songs that she enjoys singing and that the band likes playing and that have meaning for these times. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and tickets at $53 and $60 are available through the Sid Williams Theatre. For more information on Warnes, visit www.jenniferwarnes.com. Paula Wild is a published author and regular contributor to the Comox Valley Record’s arts and entertainment section.

FLAUTIST KRZYSZTOF KACZKA and pianist Sarah Hagen will launch the new Mattina Musica season Sept. 24 at the Sid Williams Theatre.

Flute and piano to begin season Mattina Musica returns to the Comox Valley for an exciting third season, beginning Sept. 24. Italian for “morning music,” Mattina Musica is a five-concert series of classical music taking place on select Monday mornings. Each event begins with a pre-concert reception in the Sid Williams Theatre lobby. Co-presented by the Sid Williams Theatre Society and pianist Sarah Hagen, the series includes performances by flautist Krzysztof Kaczka, cellist Ariel Barnes, harpist Heidi Krutzen, violinist Martin Chalifour, tenor Ken Lavigne, and violist Vaida Rozinskaite. For the opening concert, Kaczka will travel from China, where he is principal flautist of the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra. Kaczka and Hagen first met on the dance floor at a party at the Banff Centre, and their friendship was sealed when they ran into each other several months later on a bridge in Paris. They will highlight their program with the gorgeous Sonata for Flute and Piano by Cesar Franck. Born in Torun, Poland, Kaczka made his New York debut at the Carnegie Recital Hall as the IBLA Grand Prize winner. As first prize winner at the Australian Flute Festival and Competition in Adelaide, he was praised by jury chairman Jean Ferrandies for his “beautiful sound, high technical skills, and great understanding of the style of the music he played.”

Kaczka has studied at the Musikhochschule Munich, the Mozarteum in Salzburg, the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna and at the Conservatoire de Paris. He is a laureate of the prestigious Young Poland Award of the Minister of Culture of the Republic of Poland in Warsaw. As principal flautist of the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, Kaczka has performed with Krzysztof Penderecki, Stephane Denéve, Maxim Vengerov, Yo Yo Ma, Lang Lang, Sarah Chang and Midori, among others. From the Comox Valley, Hagen has been heard in concert halls and on the airwaves to critical acclaim throughout North America and Europe. As well as hosting four recital series in B.C., Hagen enjoys a busy and varied concert schedule as both a soloist and collaborator. Highlights of her 2012/2013 season include a solo recital at Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver, a Project Sound performance with Squamish photographers and a Home Routes concert tour with cellist Rebecca Wenham. Individual tickets are $20 (SWTS members) and $25 (regular). Subscribe to the whole series: $90 (members) and $115 (regular). Coffee and tea is served at 9:45 a.m. and music begins at 10:30.

Butler doing it at Zocalo CafĂŠ Zocalo CafĂŠ presents Todd Butler in concert this Saturday for an intimate solo concert. Butler has been guest host of CBC Radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Madly Off in All Directions, and has performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival on CBC TV, Vancouver Comedy Festival and the Calgary Folk Festival, to name a few. In concert, Todd gets musical too, showing audiences why his 2003 instrumental CD, Dobro and Guitar (with Doug Cox) was picked as one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top Ten by Acoustic Guitar magazine. His 2006 release, Idle Canadian, won the 2006 Vancouver Island Music Awards, CD of the Year, and he took home Song of the Year and Songwriter of the Year honours, too! Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Penguin Eggs had to say: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a whole lot of musicians who

try to be funny, but not many comedians who can play guitar like Todd Butler. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever listened to CBC Radio youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard him. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a regular on the comedy show as Madly Off In All Directions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But with this selfproduced album on which he does just about everything himself, he wants to be taken seriously as a musician. Like the late Rodney Dangerfield, all he wants is a little respect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earned it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This country boy can sure play, both acoustic and electric. The notes come out faster than the one-liners at a comedy club. And he can write a pretty moving song, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about getting back home to his Alberta rural roots (Home) or the craziness thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consuming America in A Fine Line.â&#x20AC;?

The Sid Williams Theatre Society presents Axis Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Number 14, which embarks on a 20th anniversary tour with its first stop Sept. 22 in Courtenay. Set on Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 14 bus as it travels through the social strata of a large city, the performance captures the absurdity, diversity, and eccentricities people witness and participate in as they go about their daily lives. A Canadian theatrical comedy success, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the little bus that couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has been wowing audiences all over the world since its debut in 1992. The production has adapted over time to reflect the changes in society, as well as bus transit, in the past 20 years. A letter by original directors Wayne Specht and Roy Surrette describes The Number 14â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginnings, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The inspiration [came from] commedia dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;arte, Monty Python, silent movies, Mr. Bean, vaudeville and ritual. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After weeks of playing, exploring and creating characters together, we decided to put them all on a moving bus on a route that covers the whole city. Public transit is one of the few places where diverse elements of the population cross paths. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like commedia dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;arte in 16th century Italy, we use masks to create larger-thanlife characters who are instantly recognizable as the people we see every day â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the wealthy and the destitute, the aggressive and the apathetic, strangers and lovers, the kind and the cruel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall, this is a piece that celebrates the theatrical. Sitting

ACTORS MIKE STACK and Courtenay J. Stevens will appear Sept. 22 in The Number 14 at the Sid Williams Theatre. PHOTO BY DAVID COOPER in a seat becomes a dance, silence becomes music. Six actors transform into 60 characters, and like those characters, the audience is transported â&#x20AC;&#x201D; taken for a ride on The Number 14.â&#x20AC;? An award-winning production that has

earned four Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards, The Number 14 has also received nominations for a Dora Mavor Moore (Toronto) award as well as one in the Unique Theatre Experience category from the prestigious New York Drama Desk

after a successful run on Broadway. The New York Daily News says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delightfulâ&#x20AC;Ś dazzling, brilliantâ&#x20AC;Ś astounding! This bus ride is so exhilarating that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really care where you get offâ&#x20AC;? and high praise also comes from the New York Times, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Winningly, wild. A slap-happy ride. The performers go about their work with zest and talent.â&#x20AC;? Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Axis Theatre Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 35 years of thought-provoking, award-winning creativity have earned them a rightful place on the world stage of modern dramatization. Recognized as one of British Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cultural institutions, this extraordinary company has captured the hearts and minds of audiences the world over.

Known for his contributions with Ancient Principals, a Comox Valley hip-hop crew, he also took part in the Freakin Coffee open mic nights, as well as many other community events around Courtenay.

Smoky releases his CD copy you can pick them up in Courtenay at Bop City Records or Winds of Change for $10. “The release party went well. We had a good crowd who came out and enjoyed the crew’s conscious vibes. Smoky brought with him his friends and fellow hip-hop artists, R.I.N.O and Tobes (from Vancity). “As well as Dizzy D and Def Stef (from Victoria), they each brought their own unique styles to help Smoky Mirror. “They were joined

by local Bounce Collective DJ DPMagee, who rocked the house with his funky dance hall, trap and dub styles. Smoky managed to sell a good amount of his CDs.

Moving Mirrors is the name of the new CD from local poet and emcee Smoky Mirror. Smoky is known for his contributions with Ancient Principals, A Comox Valley hip-hop crew from a few years back. He also took part in the Freakin Coffee open mic nights, as well as many other community events around Courtenay. His CD release party took place recently on Denman Island; where Smoky grew up and went back to record and release the album. Smoky explains about the project: “The story started for me three years ago now, I was living on Denman at the time going to college at NIC. There was a small room on the side of my house which became my studio, and is where I spent most my free hours recording and putting together the album (Moving Mirrors). “During this year or so on Denman, I had a few friends come by to help on the project including Silas Crowe (from Hornby) and C-Rex (from Denman). The well known Canadian hip-hop producer DJ Moves supplied all the beats for the album, so this made for a wide variety of sounds and styles. “Now some time later in 2012, I’m happy to announce that it is finally finished. With the help from Wonderbro from Port Alberni, who did an excellent job on the mastering end, and Benjamin Dunstan at (Pomfennworks Studio) who designed the incredible cover.” If anyone is interested in purchasing a

Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is Ukulele Central

WE HAVE A POPE is a serious look at a religious leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internal quest for personal truth thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cloaked in humour. It screens this Sunday at the Rialto Theatre in Courtenay.

Hesitant pope starts film series A special presentation at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 Toronto International Film Festival, director Nanni Morettiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s We Have A Pope is a comedic, sparkling peek into the inner workings of the Vatican. The title refers to the election of a new pope, with Moretti imagining the various backstage machinations entailed in this highly confidential process. The result is a magnificent blend of high-concept humour with a deeply affecting portrait of a man elected to an office that carries crushing responsibilities. The man theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen, Cardinal Melville (Michel Piccoli, best known from Jean-Luc Godardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Contempt), was not the front-runner and never expected to be offered the position. Petrified by the enormity of the role, he turns away from addressing the faithful in St. Peterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Square, effectively rejecting the papacy. The Vaticanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman finds himself drawing on all his ingenuity to solve the ensuing crisis. He calls in a

respected psychiatrist, played by Moretti, to find out what is ailing the new Pope. Is it just nerves or something much more serious? As the world nervously waits outside, inside the therapist tries to find a solution. But Cardinal Melville is adamant: He does not want the job, or at least needs time to think it over. What follows is a marvellous insight into the concept of a man existing behind the title of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative on Earth. The films for the Comox Valley Art Gallery-Toronto International Film Festival fall series are: Sept. 16, 5 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; We Have a Pope Directed by Nanni Moretti, Drama/Comedy, Unrated, Runtime 1 hr. 44 min, Country: Italy, Language: Italian (English subtitles).

Starting Sept 18, and every second week after, the Comox Valley Uke Jam will happen for a new season. With a huge thank you to Milo Yakibchuk of Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garage, ukulele players are invited to the Fifth Street venue in Courtenay for a night of picking, strumming and singing. For those who had dropped by Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garage to play with Richard Thompson before the summer hiatus, you will notice a new format as of the 18th. Retired music teachers Lynn Hodge and Linda Safford will teach beginner ukulele skills starting at 7 for approximately 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need. This lesson format will teach beginning chords and strumming patterns and encourage singing to old and new favourites. This could be a great warmup for more experienced players. By 8 each evening, the full ukulele jam should be ready to start swinging. The objective? To play and sing together!

Linda and Lynn will teach the occasional bar chord and melody picking to spice up the evening. There will be something for everyone to enjoy, maybe even a little challenge. If there is a beginning bass player out there who would like to get some group playing experience, you will be welcome to join us on Tuesday nights. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

accept standup or electric. To help cover Miloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expenses and acknowledge the instruction, a $5 charge will be collected. Only coffee, tea, juice and pop will be available for sale.

Icemen out to buck losing trend against Storm Kalan Anglos Special to the Record

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings opened the 2012-2013 season in disappointing fashion, losing twice to the Nanaimo Buccaneers. Under new head coach Bill Rotheisler, the Kings were unable to spoil Nanaimo’s first game in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL). The league, which expanded to nine teams this offseason, added clubs in both Nanaimo and Westshore, respectively. For the Glacier Kings, the league expansion provides another hurdle to overcome in what should be a very entertaining season. The Kings did some heavy renovations in the offseason, changing their entire coaching staff as well as losing several starters from last year’s lineup. Rotheisler, who was previously a coach for the Okanagan Hockey Academy, is joined by newcomers assistants Cam Knox and Mark McNaughton along with returnee Tony Wishart behind the bench. The newlook Glacier Kings look to improve on last year’s early playoff exit. In their first game of the

season, the Kings travelled to the Nanaimo Ice Centre on Sept. 6 for the Bucs’ welcoming party to the VIJHL. In a storybook beginning to a franchise’s first game, Nanaimo squeezed out a 5-4 overtime victory in front of the home crowd. The teams went backand-forth through regulation, with newcomer Calvin Hadley getting it started for the Kings in the second period. Minutes later, Dylan Moore answered back for Nanaimo before Mitch Ball scored late in the frame.

SEPT. 15 7:30 P.M. C.V. SPORTS CENTRE In the third, with time ticking and his team up by one, new Kings’ goaltender Josh Round made several big saves. However, with just 39 seconds left to play, Moore (first star) scored his second of the game, knotting it at 4-4. In overtime, Quentin McShane buried the puck out front to give the Bucs the hard-fought victory. In game two of the home-and-home, the Yetis returned to the CVRD Sports Centre on Sept. 8 looking for redemption. Once again, fans were treated to a nail-biter.

In the first period, goaltender Matthew Mitchell gave the Kings a chance to win. Showing the depth the Glacier Kings look to display this year, Mitchell turned away several big chances before Jordan Levesque lit the lamp late in the opening frame. Sophomore Adam Robertson tallied his first of the year halfway through the second, while Mitchell made 10 saves to make it 1-1 heading to the third. In that final frame, the Kings looked to steal the momentum when Michael Scobie scored shorthanded on a breakaway. However, the resilient Buccaneers answered right back, as Garrett Dunlop and Quentin McShane scored two unanswered goals, giving Nanaimo their second straight victory over the Kings. Mitchell made 28 saves in the 3-2 loss. Next game action is tonight, when the Glacier Kings head to Peninsula to take on the Panthers. Next home game is tomorrow night when the rival Campbell River Storm come to town. Puck drop for that contest will be at 7:30 at Sports Centre #1 and can be heard at www.glacierkings.ca.

Their prospects for a prosperous season looked extremely good Sunday afternoon after Comox Valley United won their Vancouver Island Soccer League Div. 3B opener 2-0 over Prospect Lake SC Lakers. Adam Amlani and Joe Butcher scored for United, which had other good scoring opportunities, including a hit goalpost. “I was pleased with the squad for the first game out,” said playercoach Carey Cordocedo. “We got the result which is important, and I think where we started this year is much improved over where we started last year. “We were under a little pressure for awhile in the second half but didn’t panic too much whereas last year we would have panicked and possibly given up a goal,” Cordocedo said.

Proving his mettle, Heron crowned Ironman at SD The ever-popular Iron Man Competition, whereby the greens crew locate pins in diabolical positions and tee boxes are stretched to their maximum length, was held Sunday at Sunnydale. None of these distractions bothered Rob Heron as he cruised around the course posting a net 69, two shots clear of any of his fellow competitors. Second on the net side went to Keith Lamond with a 71, followed by Jack Currie and Randy Bennett with 73s and in fifth spot with a net 74 was Ron Pinke. Greg Koster registered an amazing 73 gross in ultra difficult conditions, three shots better than Jordan Rallison and Kyle Stairs. Gerry Rautenberg was low net in the 10 and below handicap division with net 72, followed by Carl Webber and Matt Friesen with 75s. Jules Urban captured low gross honours in the 11+ handicap division with an 82, three shots better that Rick Dawson’s 85. Greg Mahrt and Wally Pettigrew both shot 87 with Silvio Alberti rounding out the 11+ side with a gross 89. KPs were earned by Greg Koster #10, Bo Bishop #15 and Russ Hotsenpiller #17. Getting lucky with big wins in the Pots of Gold were Silvio Alberti on #10 and Dave Pye on #15. Long Drive for 11+ handicap division went to Greg Mahrt, while Jordan Rallison blasted one to win the low handicap division – they each received merchandise courtesy of pro shop manager Rob Speer. A gift certificate to Midlands Tools was won by Randy Bennett for the longest putt on #9. This Sunday we host players from Port Alberni as they complete a home-and-away competition. Register at 8:30 for a 9 a.m. shotgun start.

ATV clubs enjoy fundraising event Rick MacDonald Special to the Record

The Comox Valley ATV Club teamed up with the Port Alberni Hill Climbers ATV Club and invited ATVers from the five ATV clubs on Vancouver Island to a campout and a fundraiser poker ride. The event was held Aug. 23-26 at the Boy Scout camp on Great Central Lake. Members from the Cowichan Valley ATV Club, the Mid-Island ATV Club, the Port Alberni Hill Climbers ATV Club and the Comox Valley ATV Club took part. We also had one rider from Ucluelet and one from Gold River. We asked ATVers camped at the campground, who were not members of any club, to take part, and I am sure we grew our club by three new members. This event was strongly supported by our two major sponsors, Courtenay Motorsports and Western One Rentals and Sales. In addition, donations by many local businesses allowed us to give away over $3,000 in prizes. Due in part to the hot weather and dry conditions, only six families camped at Scouts Beach. That was a shame. Those who camped had a spectacular time. We rode every day and sat around the campfire sharing stories every evening. Forty-three riders took part in the fundraiser poker ride. As both of the sponsoring ATV clubs are members of ATV/BC, this was a sanctioned

Care of pets while their owners are away You’ve booked your next vacation or trip to visit family living far away, and have made all of the arrangements necessary. Except for who will watch your pet. Millions of people across North America are pet owners. Although hotels and restaurants are increasingly amenable to pets, a good number of people prefer the

convenience of leaving their pet home. Pets also seem to thrive in their familiar home environments. Keeping a pet home will require the services of a pet sitter to care for the animal. At one time pet owners had limited options when it came time to arrange care for their animals while they were away. The choices were

DR. STACEY is enjoying this puppy with clean gums and teeth and good breath with a welcomed affection. Are you missing out on your doggie’s kisses because she’s got dragon’s breath?

DR STACEY Fact: Dogs and cats don’t just have ‘stinky breath’ – they have gum disease and other mucky bad things in their mouths (infected painful teeth, cancer etc…). Looking in your pet’s

mouth can be tough. The tooth disease she’s hiding is even harder to spot. An unhealthy mouth will lead to problems with her liver, heart and kidneys and will shorten her life. We’ll lift the lips together and show you what’s up and what’s not, then we’ll make a lifelong prevention plan and keep her smiling.

ios and should prove more than capable. Once you choose a sitter, there are ways to make the experience easier for all involved. • Make a list of the things your pet enjoys and does not enjoy. • List any food allergies or problems with the animal. • Provide recent veterinarian check-up information and a basic health history. • Communicate your needs and wants about the animal. • Establish rules for the home. Set up the home for the arrival of the sitter, including leaving out any necessary supplies for the pet. • Clean up the house to prevent any hazards to the pet, including unplugging wires from outlets, and closing doors to rooms that are off-limits. • Leave a radio on to simulate comforting noises in the house and keep the pet calm.

Today, however, trained professionals are available to watch your pets, some of whom will even come directly to the house.

Integrative Veterinary Medicine What is integrative veterinary medicine?

DR. MARLENE SMITHSCHALKWIJK This could well be the new medicine of the future, where we will integrate “scientific western medicine’ with the many complementary modalities that are currently in use (and new ones developed). With the rising cost of Health Care and the increase in understanding and knowl-

edge in the many forms of “complementary and alternative modalities”, it will save money and has a better outcome. Western Medicine has given us a wealth of diagnostic approaches with blood chemistry, MRI’s , CT scans, Ultra sound etc. Also our surgical skills and a wide variety of drugs, just to mention antibiotics have saved many lives. So why are so many people seeking other approaches for themselves and their pets? And how many people are indeed using other approaches? This very same question was asked by Mary Rugge, the American Medical Association and the National Institute for Health. Mary published her findings in her book “Marginal to Mainstream, Alternative Medicine in America”, 2004. Mary lists

an extensive number of modalities then considered under CAM (Complementary and Alternative medicine). Her research was funded by the American Medical Association and the National Institute for Health. Her list includes such modalities as Biofeedback, hypnosis, Yoga, music, dance, Reiki, Traditional Oriental Medicine (diet, acupuncture, herbs, Qigong etc), Ayurvedic, Homeopathy, Naturopathic Medicine, Anthroposophy medicine, osteopathy, physiotherapy, massage, chiropractics, supplements, herbal medicine etc. Mary describes some staggering figures how many people (in the USA) use any of the CAM approaches and why. Side effects and dissatisfaction with the conventional western approaches or no resolution to the problem were

the main reason why other approaches were used. In a paper published in 2007 by the Frazer Institute (Complementary and Alternative Medicine in Canada: Trends in use and public attitudes, 1997-2006), 74% of Canadians had used at least one alternative therapy in their lives, 54% had used it in the last 12 months prior to the survey. Chiropractics and massage were the most commonly used, closely followed by relaxation techniques and prayer. To be continued in our next Paw and Claws feature.

No Anesthetic Teeth Cleaning for Dogs & Cats

Banish pet odours with easy steps Animals are important members of many households. Although a pet parent may love a wagging tail or the sweet purr of love, he or she may not enjoy the odours that usually permeate from a pet. All animals give off some type of aroma. Humans have different grooming products that can help them smell fresh and clean. Pets cannot control their own odour and must rely on their owners to address any issues. There are different ways to keep smells at bay and prevent new ones from happening. Identify the odour Pets emanate odours for different reasons. Some aromas may be linked to the pet, while others may involve the pet's waste. Still others may be indicative of illness and should be treated immediately. Once the source of the smell is identified, it is easy to take action to alleviate it. Clean pets Naturally, a clean animal smells much better than a dirty one. Dogs and cats may accumulate bacteria in their fur as well as organic matter that gets stuck and decays. When animals groom themselves, the saliva applied to the fur through licking also may be prone to bacteria growth; and eventually their fur can start to smell. Pet owners with dogs or cats that have long fur around the face may find their pet's fur gets dragged through the water bowl and food dish, attracting particles that can end up leading to smells. Some pets also engage in "scent camouflage," according to veterinarian Janet Crosby. The pet may roll around in the grass or something odouriferous to mask his own scent, and this can also be a source of foul odours.

Considering the fur can be a prime source of odour problems, it is adviseable to groom the pet as needed. Check with a veterinarian to find out how frequently the pet may need to be bathed. Dogs that have oily skin may need frequent baths. Cats may not need baths often but can benefit from a thorough brushing to remove matting and any debris caught in the fur. If grooming is not something a pet owner enjoys, he or she can sign up with a professional groomer for regular appointments for the pet. The groomer may be able to establish a schedule that will help control odour. Illness Certain pet illnesses elicit a certain smell. If a dog has an ear infection, there could be an unpleasant scent emanating from the ear. Pets that have tooth decay and gum disease will have poor breath. A pet with gastrointestinal upset may have flatulence or diarrhea. Skin problems like mange may lead to open sores or abscesses that can smell foul as well.

Dogs and cats also have anal glands that contain an oily, smelly substance. The glands are usually naturally expressed during a bowel movement. However, if the glands become impacted or fail to drain, this can lead to leakage and odour. The glands also may rupture or become infected. If a pet smell doesn't go away with routine bathing, it is adviseable to take the animal to the vet for a checkup. If an underlying medical issue is identified, the vet can prescribe a treatment that will make the pet smell and feel better. Waste It is well known that waste excreted from the body does not smell pleasant. Animals who are allowed to relieve themselves indoors, such as birds and cats, might create some unpleasant odours as well. To avoid such unpleasantness, stay on top of cleaning waste receptacles. Pets generally don't like to use areas that smell poorly, either. Keep everything clean so the odours will be limited and the pet may not stray elsewhere to do his or

her business. Dogs, especially puppies, may take some time to get acclimated to going to the bathroom outdoors. Accidents can happen indoors. It is essential to clean urine and feces accidents quickly and to remove all traces of the odour. This way the house will not smell and the animal will not have marked his or her scent. Otherwise the dog may return to the same area over and over.

We combine leading edge techniques using state of the art equipment along with a holistic compassionate approach. You get the benefit of a complete teeth cleaning without the cost or stress of anesthetic. It is simply the easiest, healthiest way to care for your pet’s teeth.

B.C.’s provincially-grown wild meat is a real treat L

ast week I highlighted some of the local wild meat that could be harvested in Region 1. This column will cover the rest of the province plus common species we can harvest within the balance of the province. The biennial 20122014 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis is in some respects not much different than a shopping catalogue that we spend hours looking at in a dedicated effort to find the best deal for our interests, money and time available to plan successful hunts. Climate change will have a positive effect on public perception of recreational hunting in so far as it will be seen as an economical way to control nuisance wildlife populations and harvest British Columbia grown meat while taking part in an important recreational activity with significant economic benefits to the community and province as a whole. Pictured with this column is a display of some of the wild meat in our deep freeze from past seasons. Along with the meat are some frozen peas and blueberries from our garden plus fresh vegetables. Our meat is vacuum packed and as such will keep its quality for more than one season. Displayed are moose and elk roasts, venison steak, three types of hamburger plus pepperoni, smokies and garlic sausage – all locally grown and harvested in our province. Regulation changes are highlighted in green and a bold text. This set is awash with green print in virtually every region. It is paramount that you pay attention to these changes in any region you may wish to hunt. Youth seasons are highlighted in many management areas. In Region 1 we have a special youth-only firearms season for antlerless black-tailed deer from Sept 10 to Dec 10.

RALPH SHAW We also have Waterfowl Heritage Days for youth as listed on the bottom of page 29. These special seasons are for youth under the age of 18 who qualify for licenses. They are quite generous. A point of clarification on local bag limits for deer, see the table on Page 17. There are also special limited seasons for seniors over the age of 65 in some regions. A Thanksgiving wild turkey dinner is a possibility if you hunt in Region 4 or 8. It would be good planning to combine a deer hunt with a turkey hunt. Wild turkeys are now in sufficient numbers

that there is a season as far north as Salmon Arm in Region 8 and throughout the Okanagan Valley and southern portion of the region. They are also abundant in Region 4 where multi-species hunts are possible. Throughout the province black bears get an increasing amount of bad press. It should not be overlooked that they are important sources of meat in many places in our province. Black bears feeding on grass, berries and farmers’ corn produce excellent meat. Avoid harvesting bears around garbage dumps and salmon runs.

British Columbia is blessed with a greater variety of birds and animals that we can hunt than any other place in North America. Our wildlife resources have a long history of being wellmanaged dating back to the wildlife management policies and practices developed by the late Dr. Ian McTaggart Cowan and Dr. Val Geist, among others. The British Columbia Wildlife Federation has long been a responsible citizen’s voice in our on-going successful hunting regulations. Climate change will effect our hunting in the future. The pine

June 29, 1918 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; July 15, 2012 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Julieâ&#x20AC;? passed away peacefully at Piccadilly Care Centre in Salmon Arm just a few weeks after her 94th birthday. Julie was predeceased by her husband, Jim, in 1980. Julie and Jim spent many happy years in the Comox Valley. After meeting and getting married in Ladner in 1939, they moved to Courtenay where they lived for the next 18 years. In 1957, they relocated to Westview but returned after retirement in 1972, ďŹ rst to Point Holmes and then to Courtenay. In 2002, Julie moved to Salmon Arm to be closer to family. She is survived and will be missed by her daughter, Marsha Miller (John) of Blind Bay, son Mike (Milvia) of Quesnel, four grandchildren and ďŹ ve great-grandchildren. There will be a remembrance service for Julie for family and friends on Saturday, Sept. 15 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church, Mission Hill, followed by interment of ashes in Courtenay Civic Cemetery.

In this life there are people who love you, and then, there are people who LOVE you, and our motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LOVE is what mattered the most.

Thomas Garfield LEBARRON

May 15, 1946 - September 11, 2012 It is with unbelievable sadness that we mourn Tom’s passing Tuesday surrounded by his wife and the Davidson sibs at sea crew. Forever loved and remembered by his wife Susan, children Pam(Tim), David(Tanya), Heather(Ted), Joyanne, 5 grandchildren, his siblings, extended family and many friends. Tom carried his Brandon, Manitoba upbringing to life on the coast. His strong work ethic served him well in his 40 year mining career. Tom was proud to play a part in Mine Rescue and equally honored to be known at the Comox Golf Course as Stir-the-pot-LeBarron. Many thanks to the heroic efforts of fellow boaters “God Bless you Claire”, Search and Rescue and coast guard teams. A time of remembrance to be held at Tom’s home 1962 Bolt Avenue, Comox at 3pm Sunday, September 16.

Slavin’s journey from writing stories about the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock to being part of it started in a high school gymnasium. At Reynolds secondary school to cover the event for the Saanich News last year, Slavin watched as 115 shaved “Raising money heads and a giant cheque more than $80,000 for kids with cancer for greeted Tour riders has a much bigger alongside ear-splitting cheers. The event moved reward than just the 25-year-old reporter crossing the finish so much he made an important decision that line.” day. – Erin Glazier, “There was not a dry CTV News eye in the gym. It was the most electric feeling being a part of something so monumental,” he said. “I told the school principal then and there I want to be a part of the team.” One year and 3,000 kilometres later, he is one of two media riders months into gruelling three-day-a-week training sessions for Tour de Rock, where motivation comes in the form of cancer survivors like seven-year-old Daisy Irwin. “(Daisy) has gone through a hell that no baby or child should ever go through.

Arnold Lim/Black Press

Kyle Slavin and Erin Glazier are ready to roll for Tour de Rock respect her immensely for what she has gone through and what she has overcome,” Slavin said. “My whole reasoning behind wanting to do the tour is being on the side of cancer everyone fights for – the optimism, the hope, the getting into remission.” Seven years later, Irwin is in remission after being diagnosed with two forms of leukemia as an infant and given a five per cent chance at survival. It is a reminder why the pediatric cancer research is so important to Slavin and Glazier. Glazier described her choice to join the team as a “no-brainer” after seeing her colleagues experience the life-changing ride. “Riding a bike becomes a menial task when

you look at the big picture and see how much you are helping (cancer patients) have a normal life,” said Glazier, a CTV reporter based in Victoria. “When you are going up a hill and hurting it is nothing compared to what those kids go through when they go through the treatment. That is a big motivator for us.” With only weeks to go, the 28-year-old Glazier is excited to meet the families and volunteers along the way as she makes the gruelling trip from Port Alice to Victoria over the two-week, 1,000-kilometre bike ride, Sept. 23 to Oct. 5. “The best is yet to come. Raising money for kids with cancer has a much bigger reward then just crossing the finish line,” Glazier said.
