Port Sidney proposal won’t float: council

This gardener is on a mission Helping keep plant beds on Lochside Drive clear is Sidney woman’s way of giving back Don Descoteau News staff

Using a hollow, cylindrical tool, Lucia Fallot delicately digs at the root of a dandelion that has grown in the middle of another plant in a bed on Lochside Drive. With a flick of her wrist the weed comes out, roots and all. “Look at how long they are,” she says, pointing to the tendrils that once extended five or six inches into the ground. Dandelions are her sworn enemy. Next to the stretch of beds nearest her home on Frost Road lies an embankment angling toward to a lower walkway. It’s covered in the yellow flowers now, but many of the blooms have turned to seed and will soon be carried by the wind into the bark mulch, where Town parks workers created a beautiful garden not so long ago. The ongoing transfer of seeds causes havoc in Fallot’s eyes. So much so that she wages her own personal battle, usually two or three times a week on her walks along the seawall, against dandelions and other weeds that infiltrate the beds.

She admits to being a little slower these days than she used to be, given her need, at 89, to use a walker to get around. Otherwise her weeding activities might extend further down Lochside. As such, she is putting out a call to other walkway users and residents to dig in, so to speak, and help keep the beds free of weeds. “There’s nothing wrong with citizens helping with something the Town created, to keep it beautiful,” she says. “It cost taxpayers a lot of money to put this in.” She has shared her thoughts about the weed situation with parks staff at the Town of Sidney, including parks superintendent Brian Coward. In peak season, he says, parks crews go through the beds about every two weeks to keep them free of weeds. This summer has been a little tougher to give the beds as much attention as Fallot would like, he adds, with staff working hard to get Iroquois Park completed. As for having the public trooping through the beds targeting weeds, Coward says, “We would be fine with that.” However, he cautions against anyone weeding along the embankment. Getting some help with her dandelion crusade would be a simple way for people to give something back in return for experiencing the beauty of the walkway, Fallot says. “Maybe people think I’m crazy.

How do you know which hearing aids are right for you?

Rejection marks third time on similar projects for marina Devon MacKenzie News staff

Sidney resident Lucia Fallot holds up a dandelion she plucked from a plant bed on Lochside Drive. She encourages other people using the walkway to pull a few weeds when they can. But if (it takes) getting a little attention (to help keep the beds weed-free), then it’s worth it.”

If you’d like to help out, please call Lucia Fallot at 250-656-7537. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

A proposition from the Port Sidney Marina to alter one of its floats was denied by the Town of Sidney. “We are a council that listens … and quite clearly there are lot of concerned people around the area,” Coun. Kenny Podmore said during discussion at Monday night’s council meeting. A staff report came back to council after the marina had undertaken a public consultation process about plans to move the float from the end of ‘A’ dock to a location next to the main building. Residents on Second and Third Streets, which overlook the marina, were mailed packages twice this summer and were invited by staff to attend open houses at the marina. According to the marina’s report to council on the public consultation, only seven people visited the marina, despite 119 invitations being sent to residents. Coun. Marilyn Loveless noted that 42 of the 45 responses council received from residents voiced opposition to the float being repositioned. Port Sidney Marina was denied in both 2005 and 2008 when it proposed similar changes for the marina. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Honour obsession and

“(Armstrong has) connected families to their ancestors who were war heroes and they didn’t even know.”

Bart Armstrong is the lone historian hunting down stories of long forgotten Canadians who received the U.S. Medal of Honor

–Merv Scott Victoria Genealogical Society

Natalie North News staff

B

art Armstrong sits alone at a table for four in the cafeteria of the Black Ball ferry. In front of him: a bag of chips, a pop and a book on the Civil War. It’s a history trap. As passengers look for seats, he invites them to join. They talk about the weather and other mundane chit chat. He asks if they have a link to someone in the military. Most do. “Tell me all about the Medal of Honor,” he says and sits back as his new table mates fumble through a definition of the honour. “For the next hour-and-a-half, they’ll get a lecture from me,” he says with a smile bursting beneath his grey moustache. Armstrong doesn’t have a U.S. Medal of Honor, but he has discovered many. The 63-year-old tirelessly researches forgotten recipients of the award – Canadians, or would-be Canadians, laid to rest often without recognition from their own country of the battles they fought in the U.S. Civil War. When Armstrong began his research 12 years ago, there were 54 known Canadian recipients of the Medal of Honor. His work has unearthed another 50. In his Shelbourne Street apartment, he wades through ancestry websites and newspaper articles from the 1860s, contacts museums and archives at cities and towns across the U.S. He speaks with people such as Diane Clarke at the Victoria Genealogical Society, who through her time spent chasing down vital records for Armstrong, has come to know him as “a bit off the wall, funny, and very passionate.” Around Armstrong’s tiny home office – warmly referred to as the Canadian satellite office by members of the American Medal of Honor Historical Society, of which he is the sole Canadian member – sits evidence of his obsession.

Sharon Tiffin/News staff

Bart Armstong, in his office in his home in Saanich, works tirelessly to unearth the stories of the dozens of Canadians and British Empire citizens who received the U.S. Medal of Honor. File folders upon file folders, scrawled notes on sticky paper and a tiny hot plate, just big enough for a single mug of coffee, flank his computer station. Armstrong plunks down in front of his oversized monitor to tell me the story of those whose award has gone unrecognized or remembered by anyone, including the Canadian government.

Forgotten heroes May, 1863: the 99th Illinois infantry battles at Vicksburg – a bloodbath that leaves the entire 100 attending members of the regiment maimed or dead. Amidst a constant barrage of lead, a lone remaining troop on the Union crests the hill advancing toward Confederate lines. “He’s too brave to kill,” the Confederates yell as the man rests his regimental colours in the parapet. The Confederates take their hats off and applaud for Quebecker,

Erin Cebula, Spokesperson

WOW!

Thomas Higgins. Later they’ll jail Higgins as a prisoner of war. And for 30 years after that, they’ll remember the bravery that transcended party lines and recommend him for a Medal of Honor. Dennis Buckley, a farming kid from Lindsay, Ont., was barely 20 years old and providing for his entire family when the allure of a $300 paycheque drew him into the Civil War effort. As he captured the enemy flag, he turned to his Union comrades in the 136th New York Infantry and offered a jovial wave of motivation. Just then, a bullet ricocheted off the flagpole in his hand, struck him in the forehead and killed him instantly. Of the 10,312 Civil War soldiers buried at Marietta, Ga., only two received the Medal of Honor. Buckley, who was buried under the wrong name for 140 years, was one of them. A monument to the young soldier was erected in

Lindsay in 2007 following a story about Buckley, after Armstrong alerted the local paper. But a handful of new monuments scattered across the country isn’t Armstrong’s aim. He won’t rest until he publishes his findings in a book, though he has no publisher, or even a manuscript. “The goal is to have widespread dissemination of information about these people who we don’t know,” says Armstrong, the only known Canadian doing this kind of historical research. “There are a hundred stories – some of them are so incredibly moving and most people in this country don’t know anything about it.”

Investigator by nature Since I met Armstrong last November, his work has advanced. He already knew that Canadi-

ans (or colonial citizens of the British Empire) fired shots on both sides of Civil War lines during the 1862 battle of the Monitor and the Merrimack, the first duel between ironclad warships fought at the mouth of James River in Virginia. But now he knows the names of 12 Canadians who fought in the battle. “In that regiment there were no less than 39 Canadians,” Armstrong says. “I find this sad. It’s not publicly known and it’s too bad because it’s our heritage.” Armstrong’s own heritage is rooted in military service and a drive to investigate. A high school drop-out and one of five children born to military parents in Toronto, Armstrong has been a police officer, a private investigator, a journalist and now a historian, but always an advocate for the underdog. A seeker of truths. Signs of searches spill from his office and across the suite – some told, others left unfinished. Among his papers is the acknowledgment from Canadian authorities that his work is adding to the annals of Canadian history. “Dear Mr. Armstrong, I want to thank you for drawing our attention to a historical fact of which none of us at the Embassy was aware, namely that so many Canadians have been awarded the U.S. Medal of Honor,” wrote Frank McKenna, the former Canadian ambassador to the United States during his tenure in 2005. David Frandsen, the Consul General of Canada, in a letter dated July 27 of last year, thanks Armstrong for his successful research, documentation and bringing forth the results of this work. “It is, indeed, a worthwhile effort in the preservation of a very long and proud Canadian heritage that, unfortunately, has not been widely known,” Frandsen wrote.

Private fire investigator Chris deRosenroll takes a photo of material taken from a locker at Keating Self-Storage on Wednesday. Most of one row of lockers at the Veyaness Road facility was destroyed in an early morning fire Tuesday. The cause was still under investigation as of the News Review deadline.

Dozens of units were destroyed and several others damaged when a fire ripped through a section of a storage facility in Keating early Tuesday morning. Central Saanich Fire Department received a call around 2 a.m. that a row of storage units at the Keating Self Storage facility off Veyaness Road were on fire. “The call came in as a structure fire and by the time I arrived it was already in full flame, (going) through the roof of the

storage facility,” Fire Chief Ron French said. “It took about 40 minutes for us to get it under control and then another hour and bit to clean it up. We were on scene for about two hours dealing with it.” The cause of the blaze had yet to be determined by Wednesday afternoon. French said he doesn’t expect the answer will be easy to find, due to the extent of the fire. “To figure out where it started or what started it will be almost impossible, because in storage lockers, you don’t know what people have put in there.”

A total of 28 units were destroyed and six others sustained smoke damage. The entire row of units, including those lockers that weren’t affected will have to be demolished and rebuilt, French said. He added that people renting lockers in the structure that were not damaged will be relocated to other units in the large complex. The owner of Keating SelfStorage chose not to comment on the fire, given the ongoing investigation over the cause. reporter@peninsula newsreview.com

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

MARCI-LYN BRAITHWAITE

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.

RCMP keep busy with impaired drivers

27-year-old North Saanich man’s breath. The officer gave the man two roadside screenings that both came up in the warn rage. The driver was given a 24-hour roadside suspension.

Job search made easier working with Sidney firm News staff

or underemployed.” Beacon offers clients help with resumés, provides job search resources, presents related seminars and in some circumstances, arranges co-operative job placements. “Some people come in and meet with a case manager and work with them to find a job. Others come in to use our resources like the computers or workshops, and some people just want help to tweak their resumes,” Eyre said. “We never know what someone will need until they come to us, and we see a large cross-section of people.” The organization sees every-

one from young people looking for their first job, to retirees looking for part-time work – even stayat-home moms looking to return to work once their children have grown older, Eyre said. “(Beacon) helped me a great deal by just being supportive and helping me find jobs to apply for and giving me suggestions,” Cyr said. “They assisted me with my resumé and offered different classes that helped me gain selfconfidence.” Beacon is hosting a work fair Sept. 20 for anyone interested in job opportunities. It’ll feature employers from the Saanich Peninsula and Greater Victoria. The

event runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the SHOAL Centre in Sidney. “The event is a chance for jobseekers to access potential jobs,” said Eyre, adding that attendees should come prepared with resumés and be ready to answer interview questions. Among the employers on hand will be Lordco, Peninsula Co-op, Monk Office Supply, Epicure Selections, Bayshore Home Health, Sears Canada and Volunteer Victoria.

Residents of Sidney may soon hear the familiar clip-clop of hooves on the town’s streets. Council gave approval Monday night to bylaw changes that will allow Central Saanich-based Black Beauty Line Carriage Tours to operate on a trial basis, starting as early as this fall. No one has actively run carriages in Sidney for years. Council moved to change the wording of the bylaw because it was linked directly to Victoria Single Horse Drawn Carriage Tours Inc., the company that previously held the exclusive licence to operate in Sidney. According to Black Beauty’s application, it hopes to begin a trial period this fall to examine how they will operate in Sidney. Past carriage operators in the town at one point had their horses and wagons stationed at the entrance of the Port Sidney Marina. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

OUR VIEW

Walking on thin ice The Canadian government has routinely been criticized for not being aggressive enough in curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Now a University of Victoria report shows Arctic permafrost is thawing and billions of tonnes of carbon dioxide, previously unaccounted for, is being released into the atmosphere, helping raise global temperatures. This news comes on the heels of a report from the National Snow and Ice Data Centre which found that the Arctic sea ice cover melted to its lowest since 1979 last month. What these two things have in common is that they are both caused by global warming – along with natural weather patterns – and both increase global warming. The warming trend in turn creates strange and devastating weather patterns including tornadoes in Brooklyn, droughts in Texas and flooding everywhere from Pakistan to Montreal. These severe weather events cause billions of dollars in damage, not to mention hundreds of thousands of deaths each year. In 2011, the cost of weather disasters worldwide was an estimated $150 billion. Scientists are now reporting that severe weather events that usually occur every 50 to 100 years are appearing in shorter cycles. Our warmer atmosphere creates heat waves, more water evaporation from the oceans adds up to heavier rainfall, rising winds occur and atmospheric chaos ensues. These dramatic weather events are another indication that global warming is real and all levels of government need to take it seriously. The federal Liberal government that agreed to the Kyoto Protocol to restrict greenhouse gas emissions, lacked the enthusiasm to meet its targets and since the Conservative takeover, the level of apathy has risen to new heights. The Harper government decided it would never meet the targets so why try? Perhaps the steady erosion of Canada’s Arctic is reason enough. As the ice and permafrost melt, and the water rises, Canada will no longer have to worry about Arctic sovereignty as there will be no Arctic land mass left to protect.

Canada’s Arctic sovereignty may be threatened

Let’s not forget Conrad Black and his inflated ego and wallet. For us, who pay their wages, the anger doesn’t come because we want to get all those goodies for ourselves, but it’s the incredible sense of entitlement from these stuffed shirts (male and female). What makes people angry is that our taxes keep going up and our quality of life keeps going down, not even keeping up with the rate of inflation. Those who milk the system should be exposed and no public entity should hire them if they are caught with their hands in the public purse. But they do go on and land new jobs and double dip if they can. Their sense of entitlement remains. They have lost touch with what it is like for the average working stiff. They are above it all. This is exactly why countries like Greece, Italy and Spain are faltering and failing economically. Their civil service is bloated and it is exploding. Civil servants there believe they have a right to a job for life once they get into the employ of the government. The scary thing is it could easily happen here.

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW -Friday, September 14, 2012

LETTERS Readers respond: Views on gay marriage defy logic Every now and then, a subject comes along which defies logic. In my view such is the case with some of the views held on gay marriage. Long before the organized business of religion reared its head, people got together for comfort, protection and the raising of children. If men were killed in wars or by woolly mammoths and there were no spare men, women helped each other to raise the kids. There was no outcry, its just had to be done and it was. I, personally, was raised by two women after the second world war and have no complaints. Then religions started to appear and so-called holy men started to dictate how people would live and subscribe to their views and demands. To those who chose to belong, that was a choice they made, but a choice that only applied to that particular business of religion. Now we have the peoples’ government saying its OK for gays to marry, but those same businesses and their followers are saying no, that should not be. When businesses start to dictate the laws outside their own jurisdiction, we are in even greater trouble than we are when a government, such as ours today, makes regulations to laws that benefit certain corporate interests instead of those of the people. If religious businesses do not wish to perform marriages, that is their prerogative, just as it is the prerogative of any restaurant owner not to serve anyone they so choose. The law of the land acknowledges marriages performed by licensed civil people, and after 6 months of two people cohabiting, they are considered to be common law husband and wife anyway. If that should be two men or two women, it is immaterial. It’s none of the concern of the religious businesses any more than it is mine. So let me say I have absolutely no problem with anyone belonging to and believing in any religion, but I do have a problem with some largely tax exempt businesses trying to dictate the law to suit their various books of reference.

Letter writers ought to lighten up I used to look forward to reading the Peninsula News Review, especially the letters that the public submit. But now, not so much. It seems to me that perhaps people have too much time on their hands, and they spend an awful lot of time complaining about something that happened or something someone had written in the paper. If people want to have an eating contest at a local fair, what is wrong with that? If people don’t like it, then don’t go. It’s all in fun and they are not harming anyone. Perhaps people should lighten up a bit and let others enjoy themselves – they, too, may find they enjoy themselves as well. Life is too short for all this sourness. Remember what your mother said, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.” Donna Tolen North Saanich

Sidney marina unspoiled as is Eight years ago, Sidney council with wisdom and foresight, ordered a local contractor to build a seawalk at his own expense before starting construction of a townhouse complex.

Gay marriage, sour writers, Port Sidney, Fletcher The contractor complied by building an attractive, sturdy boardwalk fringing a tidal flat. It hooked in with the existing seawalk, allowing visitors and Sidney residents to enjoy the entire promenade. Walkers often stop and lean against the wooden railing to view ducks, geese, herons, seagulls, crows, seals and inukshuks. At the same time, they look directly at the marina and admire boats. For the sake of the many people who use the seawalk, it is hoped that Sidney council, with their usual wisdom and foresight, will find an alternative to the marina’s proposed view-blocking white wall. (Editor’s note: Council rejected the proposal at this week’s meeting; see the story on page 1.) Benni Chisholm Sidney

Columnist wades deep into manure Re: Separating oil from manure (B.C. Views, Sept. 5) Thanks Tom Fletcher for another wellresearched column about oil and manure. Surely, the merits of the refinery talk have advanced the debate over the Enbridge pipeline, in one simple way. The debate continues to advance deeper into the manure. Your global studies from nearly a decade ago, Andrew Weaver’s omniscient greenhouse gas theory regarding coal vs. oil and your CERA report on where fossil fuel emissions come from all fail to address the one truth that you mistakenly added to your article: “It’s not tankers and pipelines doing most of the polluting, it’s you and me.” Indeed, you and I are doing the polluting. The serious debaters here know this and that is the main point of contention. Since all of us seem unable to curtail our wasteful and stupendous exploitation of archaic energy sources then why continue to facilitate them? We dictate regulatory controls over “hard” drug use and many other social ills, and now some of us are wanting to put ourselves in rehab. It seems promoters such as yourself want to literally pipeline this product to new, larger and currently less-addicted part of the globe. I have little doubt that you will succeed; I have a lot of hope that you won’t. Ryan Gisler Victoria

more of these storytelling sessions south of the border, but he has already sunk more than $10,000 into his work – in photocopied files and cross-country flights – and his resources are slim. Merv Scott, president of the Victoria Genealogical Society, watched Armstrong miss an opportunity in March to travel to Washington D.C. during the 150th anniversary of the first awarding of the Medal of Honor. The man with what Scott describes as “an unabashed passion” couldn’t afford the trip. “He’s connected families to their ancestors who were war heroes and they didn’t even know,” Scott says. “He just lives and breathes this stuff.” “If there’s a fault with Bart, it might be marketing himself,” says Michael Bourque, a friend of Armstrong’s who has seen his body of research expand over the years. “He doesn’t want any of these heroes to be forgotten.” When he unearths a tale such as that of Joseph Noil – a Nova Scotia native who earned the Medal of Honor on Boxing Day 1872 after jumping from the USS Powhattan in Portsfeld, Va., to save a drowning crew mate – he can’t help sharing. No one knows if Noil, the only black recipient of the honour, actually received the medal before he died in 1881, but Armstrong has made it his mission to get the word out now. Armstrong closes his binder of clippings and replaces it on the shelf crammed with books. “The name of my book is going to be Forgotten Heroes and I don’t know if the word ‘forgotten’ is appropriate,” Armstrong says, “because I don’t know if they were ever known.” nnorth@saanich news.com

PENINSULA NEWS REVIEW -Friday, September 14, 2012

Tide is turning on house prices The Victoria Real Estate Board recently stated the Greater Victoria market is “flat.” At the same time, a recent news article reported that housing affordability in the region has improved, dropping to 42.2 per cent of family income for a detached bungalow. But the facts are clear. Housing activity and prices continue to decline by most measures. August unit sales of all properties were down by 17 per cent compared to a year ago, while listings were up two per cent. At this rate, it would take 11 months simply to clear the existing inventory of unsold units – an all-time high. Housing affordability Peter Dolezal has indeed improved. Financial Savvy However, it is important to realize that it remains difficult to obtain a mortgage if a family borrows more than 32 per cent of family income for the projected cost of ownership. That’s fully 10 percentage points below our current “improved” level of affordability. The key reasons for that improvement are softening prices, combined with a dramatic decline in mortgage rates. Locally, all categories of housing have returned to their approximate price levels of August 2010. The modest price declines this year have been tempered by historically low interest rates. In early September, the best rate available through mortgage brokers for a five-year closed mortgage was 2.89 per cent; for seven years it was 3.59 per cent. With rates this low, a mortgage with a fiveyear term and a 25-year amortization will result in payments of only $468 per month for each $100,000 borrowed. While these low rates are the key reason for our relatively modest price declines, they also highlight the vulnerability of future house prices to rising interest rates. Significant increases are probably several years off, but they will inevitably occur. It is not my intent to spread doom and gloom about our housing prospects. Rather, it is to ensure that sellers understand the market environment and price realistically, if they expect their home to sell. Buyers need to realize that they have moved to the driver’s seat. It is clearly a buyer’s market; they need not be rushed into making a deal. A buyer’s patience is far more likely to be rewarded than in past years, when sellers had the edge. The real estate tide is turning; it has not reached its low point. A retired corporate executive, enjoying postretirement as a financial consultant, Peter Dolezal is the author of three books. His most recent, The Smart Canadian Wealth Builder, is now available at Tanner’s Books and other bookstores.

Individuals and families needing assistance with legal matters will soon have a one-stop-shop to access the justice system in Victoria. Attorney General Shirley Bond announced a $1.5 million investment to create a Justice Access Centre within the Victoria Law Courts, where people attempting to navigate the justice system have access to a multitude of support, knowledge and information. “When you’re trying to sort out how to deal with matters like child custody issues, or divorce, property issue, or debt, it can be an emotional and pretty stressful period of time,� Bond said. She said one of the goals of the new centre is “finding ways to resolve problems that don’t necessarily require litigation. That’s a lot better for families.� Among the agencies offering services at the province’s two existing centres are Access Pro Bono, Credit Counselling Society, Legal Services Society and Mediate B.C.

tre, set to open in fall 2013, is a partnership with the University of Victoria, as its law centre will be co-located on the site, at 850 Burdett Ave. “The creation of Victoria’s new Justice Access Centre, and its co-location here with our law centre will improve access to justice,� said Donna Greschner, dean of UVic’s faculty of law. “Access to justice is one of the critical issues of the day, and this new centre will go a long way towards improving access to justice for people in (Greater Victoria) who otherwise would not be able to get the legal help

that they need.� The law centre is the clinical legal program for law students to assist people who can’t afford a lawyer, added Bond. “This opens the door to new opportunities for collaboration, and our goal is the same. We want to find better ways to serve individuals and families in the Capital Region.� Two Justice Access Centres currently operate in Nanaimo and Vancouver.

Review to celebrate 100 years of news More history in the making planned for Heritage Acres Devon MacKenzie News staff

This coming week in 1956, attendance records were toppled almost daily at North Saanich’s

Sandown Park during the fall race series. The first day at the horse racing track saw more than 3,000 people take in the races, which was substantially more than the previous year’s attendance figures. Stories like that one have not only shaped history here on the Peninsula, they’ve also been peppered through the pages of the Peninsula News Review for the

past 100 years. A century ago, the first edition of the Sidney and Islands Review hit the streets. Since then it has been the go-to reference for news around the Peninsula. This month the News Review is celebrating its 100th birthday with a party at Heritage Acres that doubles as a fundraiser for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. The event happens Saturday, Sept.

22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. “We’re looking forward to celebrating with the community,” says News Review publisher Jim Parker. “And what better place to hold a party like this than at Heritage Acres.” The activities will feature live music from bands The Archers, Chick Wagon and Fir Cone, entertainment for kids including Panorama Recreation Centre’s inflat-

able obstacle course, and a barbecue and refreshments courtesy of Peninsula Co-op and pies supplied by Fairway Market. Refreshments and admission are by donation, with all proceeds going to Tour de Rock. “It’s going to be a fun day,” Parker says. “We’re looking for good support for the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock.” reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

With Tour de Rock riders behind him for support, Saanich police quatermaster Kevin Nunn pulls a Mini Cooper around University of Victoria's Ring Road on Sunday to raise money for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock.

NEWS REVIEW

Car pull raises $26K for Tour de Rock Kyle Slavin News staff

It took 11 hours, and a ton of emotional support, but Kevin Nunn successfully pulled a 2,530-pound Mini Cooper around the University of Victoria 12 times on Sunday. Twenty-one kilometres later, and Nunn, quartermaster for the Saanich police, was feeling the pain. "I’m very heavy, very stiff," he said Monday morning. "But

it was worth every ounce of effort. When you think about it, by the end of the week I’ll be feeling great. These kids going through their cancer treatments, they go months and years in pain." Nunn set a $25,000 fundraising goal for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, and broke it even before he began the car pull at 6 a.m. By Monday his total was at $26,500, and counting. In 2011, the 49-year-old ran

60 kilometres from Duncan to Victoria, raising $14,000 for Tour de Rock. While next year he hopes to be one of the Tour riders, Nunn said he’s already concocting his next crazy fundraising idea. All the money he raises will be split among the three Saanich police officers riding in this year’s Tour: Niki Hodgkinson, Jett Junio and Jana Sawyer.

The United Way of Greater Victoria hopes to raise $6 million in the next year to provide financial support to nearly 70 social programs. “This community is incredibly generous and we have high hopes that we will exceed the goal,” said campaign chair John Guthrie at Wednesday’s unveiling at Ogden Point. From transitional housing to anti-bullying initiatives in schools to drug rehabilitation, the United Way works with community partners to identify the most pressing community issues. Registered charities can apply for grants for specific projects that help address those issues, and a panel of community experts selects eligible partners and monitors the funds. United Way funding recipients include AIDS Vancouver Island, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria, Pacifica Housing Advisory Association, Victoria Cool Aid Society and the Conservatory of Music. The campaign raised $5.9 million in 2011 with the help of more than 1,000 volunteers in 500 workplaces and individual community donors. In the past year, United Way funding helped deliver 117 programs and services to the community’s most vulnerable people through 68 partners. Guthrie said funding requests exceeded available resources by nearly two to one last year. “The need is great, we know that,” he said. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com CONTESTS CONTES TS PR PRODU ODUCTS CTS STORE STORES S FLY FLYERS ERS DEALS DEALS COUPO COUPONS NS BROCHU BRO CHURES RES CATAL CATALOGU OGUES ES CON CONTES TESTS TS PR PRODU ODUCTS CTS ST STORE ORES S FLYERS FLY ERS DE DEALS ALS CO COUPO UPONS NS BRO BROCHU CHURES RES CATAL CATALOGU OGUES ES

ALS walk helps family heal Fundraiser supports ALS patients in region Brittany Lee News staff

F

or Shanna Juszko, the hardest part about losing her mother is not being able to hear her

voice. “I used to talk to her three times a day,” Juszko says. Dianna Goffin passed away from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, in July after a seven-month battle with the disease. “For me, it’s (remembering her) every day. I wake up in the morning and think, ‘Oh, I haven’t talked to mum in a while, I should call her.’ “Then I realize…” she says, her voice softening as her eyes well up. ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal neuromuscular disease. It attacks the body’s nerves, used to send messages from the brain to the muscle. Ultimately, those diagnosed with ALS lose all mobility, including the ability to speak, swallow and breathe. However, the brain often remains healthy and alert. The average life expectancy for people diagnosed with ALS is three to five years. Born in Comox, Dianna spent most of her life in Campbell River and lived in Courtenay for the last six years. The active 64-year-old loved hockey, golfing and knitting. But most of all, she loved her family. “She just loved life, and travelling, and spending time with family and friends,” her daughter says. After retiring, Dianna spent the next 11 years travelling throughout B.C., the Yukon, Alberta, and the western United States with her husband, Bob Goffin. The couple of almost 45 years spent winters down south. But this past winter, their trip was cut short. After leaving their Courtenay home last October, Dianna knew something was wrong.

Bob Goffin, left, Kevin Juszko, 8, Shanna Juszko, Murray Juszko and Megan Juszko, 10, stand outside of their Saanich home in the team shirts they will be wearing during Sunday’s (Sept. 16) Victoria Walk for ALS. “Her muscles were twitching and she just generally didn’t feel all that great,” Juszko recalls. By the end of November, the Goffins returned to Saanich, convinced by their daughter to stay with her. Dianna was diagnosed with ALS on Dec. 5, 2011. “She was angry,” Juszko says. “She was really angry. And for the first little while (she asked), ‘Why me? Why did this happen to me?’” In January, her health took a downturn. During a family outing, Dianna experienced a foot drop, a common sign of ALS where the muscles in the foot become too weak to lift the leg. She learned to let go of the anger, and Dianna started enjoying the time she had left with her family. The Goffins even hosted a family barbecue, with about 25 guests, at their home the night before Dianna passed. “We didn’t realize it was going to be that fast,” Juszko says. “She actually came outside and sat with everybody for the barbecue.” That next day, July 10, Dian-

na’s breathing got worse. And within 45 minutes she passed away with her family by her side. Juszko, her father, and almost 30 family members and friends will be participating in the Victoria Walk for ALS on Sunday, in memory of Dianna. It’s their first year walking to help raise funds for the ALS Society of B.C. – which goes towards equipment and support for families affected by ALS, as well as research to finding a cure. Besides supporting the Goffin family, the society also provided Dianna with much needed equipment and care, which costs an average $137,000 per patient. The Victoria Walk for ALS takes place Sunday, Sept. 16 at 12:30 p.m. starting from Lot 6 at the University of Victoria. The walk around Ring Road starts at 1 p.m. Last year’s event raised $28,000. This year, organizers aim to raise $35,000. To register visit walkforals. ca. For more information, email victoriawalk@alsbc.ca. editor@peninsulanewsreview.com

Grim facts of ALS ■ About 3,000 Canadians currently live with ALS and each day, two to three Canadians die from the disease. ■ There is no known cause of ALS, nor is there a cure. ALS always results in death, with 90 per cent of those dying within five years.

In some cases it’s my first job and it’s helping me learn responsibility and customer service. Others that deliver our paper do it to stay fit or to contribute to their household income. We all have a common goal. We help you stay in touch with this great community. And we help local businesses thrive too. The weather isn’t always great and the hills can be steep, but I still endeavor to give you my best.

OPEN HOUSE

Saturday, Sept. 15 11:00 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2:00

Carving for conservation Devon MacKenzie News staff

Well known local stone carver Craig Benson has paired with Raincoast Conservation Foundation and a large group of artists from all over the coast to raise awareness about the proposed Enbridge pipeline. Benson, a Salt Spring Island resident, carved a large piece he dubbed â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Raincoast Bowlâ&#x20AC;? out of a single piece of stone. Much of the time Benson spent finishing the bowl was spent with him acting as an artist-inresidence at Hemp and Company in Sidney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He spent a long while doing detail work on the bowl here,â&#x20AC;? said Morgan Obendorfer, owner of Hemp and Company Sidney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are big supporters of Raincoast and so we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have planned it better. We were fusing two things we love, art and environmental awareness, and on top of that it was great to have an artist-in-residence.â&#x20AC;?

Benson estimates the weight of the stone carving to be about 550 pounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big piece,â&#x20AC;? he said of the creation that took more than 18 months to complete. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The piece itself, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very impressive,â&#x20AC;? said Obendorfer, who added that visitors to the store really enjoyed seeing Benson working on the piece in person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really moving.â&#x20AC;? A bronze cast of the bowl has been created, which Benson will donate to the Raincoast Conservation Foundation. The piece will be included in their upcoming book Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raincoast at Risk - Art for an Oil-free Coast which features 50 Canadian artists portraying the west coast which they feel is at risk from the Northern Gateway pipeline. The book will be released in November and an accompanying travelling art show is scheduled for the fall. Visit www.raincoast. org for more information. reporter@peninsulanewsreview.com

Ardmore ladies club winding down season Summer tournament play wraps up for 2012 It’s down to the short strokes for the Ardmore ladies golf club. On the heels of a successful club championship tournament in late August, the women are gearing up for their final pin round of the 2012 season, a putting competition and some fun games before the mid-winter round robin tournament. Alison Hawkins was crowned club champion, after shooting a threeround gross of 267 (88-91-88) over three days. She edged Linda Pengelly by three strokes overall, despite Pengelly’s final-round score of 86. Winning the silver flight was Lorna Ruttan with a three-round gross of 298, followed by Cathy Keats at 315. In the bronze flight, Marilyn Graham wound up atop the board with a 329 gross. Roberta Gault was runner-up at 336. Taking the low net aggregate was Sherry Lachmund with scores of 68, 73 and 66 for a 207 total.
