Bridge. The Cowichan Station artist is also proud of his illuminated waterfall Splash built in Durham, England for Lumiere 2011. The native Welshman’s Rain Water feature was a hit at Vancouver’s Expo 86. And he gained recent global applause for his Running Water creation at the London Olympics. But Lewis also has compassion for his community, and its dogs. His genius for gurgling art surfaces next month in Quench — an 8 1/2-foot, Fiberglas totem-pole drinking fountain for people and pets — going to city hall’s west side facing Craig Street for the city’s centennial. “I ¿rst got the concept walking past Bucky’s (Sports Shop) where I saw a dog bowl of water, and thought it could be used on a fountain. “Then I thought ‘Wouldn’t it be neat to build a drinking fountain in the shape of a totem pole?’” Enter fellow artists Richard Gibson and Rande Cook, plus Blue Gold Water Systems’ hydrologist Lauren Holman making Quench a reality in Totem Town. “The raven on top is the trickster that’ll occasionally spray a mist of water,” Sharon Jackson of the city centennial committee, said about the $65,000 fountain doused by provincial dollars, and ongoing local fundraising. The fountain boasts the mythical bird perched on the hat of the First Man holding an eagle bowl “into which water falls, so you drink from the eagle bowl also designed to ¿ll water bottles.” “The First Man has his foot on the

Blue Dodge Dakota sought in Duncan hit-and-run Police are looking for a Dodge Dakota pick-up truck that may have hit a bicyclist near the Dog House restaurant Wednesday, then fled the scene. The cyclist was struck by a pickup truck at around 1:30 p.m. on the lsland Highway in front of Duncan’s Dog House, Mounties say in a release. Witnesses stated a late-’90’s model, dark-blue Dodge Dakota pickup, standard cab left southbound

on the Trans-Canada Highway when it hit the 40-yearold female cyclist from Duncan, who was riding north on the west side sidewalk, toward traffic, Cpl. Jon Stuart of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP said. “The truck stopped at the stop sign exiting the Dog House Restaurant parking area,” Stuart explains. “The cyclist thought she was being waved across by the driver, and proceeded to ride across.

The truck accelerated, striking the cyclist and knocking her off the bicycle, then continued southbound on the highway, without stopping.” The rider was taken to Cowichan District Hospital but suffered only bruises and scratches. If anyone witnessed this incident, or can identify the vehicle or driver, call the RCMP at 250-7485522, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

Raising awareness and beating the odds

Scleroderma: Cowichan woman using her story to help others live with fatal disorder Maeve Maguire

News Leader Pictorial

S

andra George doesn’t go out much these days, but that hasn’t stopped her from changing the world and embarking on the most important journey of her life. George suffers from scleroderma, a disorder that decreases the elasticity in connective tissue. Connective tissue enables heart valves to open and close, the lungs to expand, and the stomach to digest food, among other things. A lack of elasticity makes it dif¿cult and painful for George to move, breathe and eat. George was diagnosed with scleroderma in 1993. At the time, she was going to college and caring for her ¿ve-year-old daughter. When she began to feel tired and her ¿ngers started curling, she knew something was wrong. “I went to see my doctor and they sent me to a specialist in Victoria who told me what I had. I was in shock. I didn’t know how to deal with it and I didn’t know anyone who had it. I was more worried about my daughter than myself.” George quit school and joined a group of local women who had formed a support group for those suffering from the disorder. Being involved in that group helped George understand what was happening to her body and what lifestyle changes she would have to make so she could survive. The average lifespan for a person diagnosed with scleroderma is two years. Nineteen years later, George is defying the odds. But this is a woman who is not unfamiliar with overcoming adversity. She is a residential school survivor who was taken from Duncan Elementary School to Kuper Island when she was in Grade 3 and stayed separated from her family until Grade 7. During that time, her guardians referred to her only by the number 50. In high school, she participated in competitive canoe pulling, which involved extensive physical conditioning and a special diet. The training required discipline but she enjoyed it. George has found a way to live well with this disorder even though there were few resources available to help her. She developed a strict diet and, because she has limited mobility, her daugh-

Macadam thinks the reason the book is so powerful is because it is written in George’s own words. “The gift this incredible woman has brought forth is speaking to people from an experienced perspective. Every single word is hers.” The plain language book is the ¿rst piece of literature on scleroderma that represents First Nations culture. The Arthritis Society and the Scleroderma Society of Canada (SSC) are publishing George’s book on their websites, and helping to print and publish it. The book will be the ¿rst booklet distributed across Canada. When the SSC heard about George’s book, they asked her to come as an honoured guest to this year’s SSC Conference in Vancouver on Sept 28. George and Macadam were thrilled by the invitation. SSC representatives recommended the pair connect with medical professionals at the conference to encourage a working group of experts to visit medical practitioners in the Cowichan Valley, as rates of scleroderma are uniquely high in this region but knowledge of the disorder is limited. Unfortunately, all is not going as planned. “A week ago they called and said they can’t fund the trip,” said Macadam, “But hell or high water we are going.” The pair is asking the public for donations to help fund the trip, with the hope they can afford for George’s daughter and granddaughter to join them. “They supported me and brought me to the hospital at three o’clock in the morning. They know what I’m going through. My daughter would learn more about it and understand better.” It will be an exhausting journey, and having her Maeve Maguire Sandra George, who is trying to raise awareness about scleroderma, has worked closely on her journey with public support network nearby will help George remain calm and rested, something Macadam said is health nurse Amber Macadam. critical to her health. ter helps care for her.

Bylaw 3442 proposes to amend “Permissive Tax Exemption Bylaw, 2008”, No. 3351, by exempting the property taxes for 50% of land at 9745 Chemainus Road, owned by the Chemainus Theatre Festival Society. This exemption will be for the year 2013 only. The amount of the taxes exempted is estimated to be $860. If the exemption were for two years the amount of the exemption would be $1,720, and if exempted for three years the amount of the exemption would be $2,580. Bylaw 3442 also revises assessment roll numbers, property owner information, and removes references to properties that no longer qualify for exemption. This notice is given pursuant to section 227 of the Community Charter.

She wasn’t worried about anything during the swim — sharks even frequent those waters — but would she do it again? “No,’’ said Kealey. She did the breaststroke most of the way and switched to freestyle strokes near the end. Scott didn’t do much freestyle because she wanted to avoid taking in too much salt water. “The side I turn my head to is

where the waves were coming,’’ she explained. Jim was impressed with the organizers of the event. “They looked after her pretty well right from the minute she got on the boat,’’ he said. “One of the guys in his kayak gave me some water and pulled me a little bit,’’ Kealey said. The family revolved a vacation around the event. Kealey was more impressed she could purchase giant candy than by her own swimming feat.

ealey Scott has been telling quite a tale to classmates since returning to school about something she did during the summer. To many, it may seem like a tall tale. But the 10-year-old Bench Elementary School Grade 5 student did, in fact, swim in the Alcatraz XXXII Escape from the Rock in San Francisco. She weighs only 63 pounds soaking wet, stands four-foot-four and was the only girl under 16 brave enough to do it. Scott was the youngest swimmer by a long shot in the 1 1/2-mile swim Aug. 25, completing it in 26 seconds less than the one-hour mark. She started in swim lessons at an early age. Stamina comes from her nine months of the year training with the Duncan Stingrays and ¿ve seasons of summer swimming with the Cowichan Valley Breakers. Her swim was boat-assisted, meaning she was moved if necessary due to strong currents or going off course and back into the pack. Asked what the experience was like, Scott had a prompt one-word answer. “Cold,’’ she said. There were various reports about the water temperature, but dad Jim had it pegged at about 56 degrees

Samaritan thrilled Alf the tortoise safe at home Peter W. Rusland

att Dame may not be a turtle whisperer, but he’s one shell of a hero. The valley man learned in Wednesday’s News Leader Pictorial the African spurred tortoise he found strolling along Cowichan Lake Road Sept. 7 was safely returned Sunday to her local owners. Dame was headed home from work at Kaatza Logging when he spotted Alf ambling along the rural road, past the Skutz Falls area at about 5:30 p.m. He couldn’t believe his eyes. “I was driving along and I saw this shell in the middle of the road. I’ve seen a turtle before but only a baby one,” he said. So he pulled over and approached the animal.

Matt Dame was thrilled to read Alf, the wayward female spurred tortoise, was safely returned to her local owners after he found Alf walking along Cowichan Lake Road. “I got closer and saw it toddling tortoise was was a tortoise, and thought someone’s pet because of a ‘Are you kidding?’ I’ve purple dot on its shell. never seen one this big “She poked her neck out before. to make sure I wasn’t going “I checked it out to make to hurt her. sure it wasn’t injured, but “I knocked on some doors I knew it was OK because nearby while other drivers it was walking fast enough.” pulled over and took some For a turtle, that is. photos.” Turns out Alf escaped Dame hefted 25-pound from the family’s enclosure Alf — “the size of a large after a child left the pen gate pizza, I’d say” — onto the open.

“We put it on a pallet in our pond, just in case it was dehydrated.” Someone checked the internet to learn about tortoise food and care, then a call was made to Salt Spring’s Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre. “They met us at the ferry terminal in Crofton and took it,” he said of the 15year-old pet. Two weeks later, Dame saw Alf on the Leader’s front page after friends of owners Cody Bell and Victor Gough read press about Alf, then called the centre. The family visited the centre Sunday, correctly identi¿ed Alf, and took her home. Turtle Samaritan Dame liked the happy ending. “If I hadn’t had a beer after work, I would have missed ¿nding that turtle,” he said. The wildlife centre is at 250-537-0777.

Kozak gets life after torturing man in Shawnigan, then leaving him to die Parole-eligible after 23 years: Campbell River killer sentenced in the deaths of three men Kristen Douglas

Campbell River Mirror

A

well-known Campbell River killer got life in prison with no chance of parole for 23 years for the second-degree murders of two men, including one in Shawnigan Lake. Darcy Kozak was sentenced by Justice

James Williams in Victoria B.C. Supreme Court on Friday for killing Kenneth Robinson, a 45-year-old homeless man from Nanaimo, and Kenneth Allan Leask, 44, from Powell River. Kozak was also handed an 11-year concurrent sentence for the murder of Campbell River’s Luc Dulude whom Kozak met while in jail. Kozak, 40, pled guilty Aug. 30 to two counts of second-degree murder, and one

count of manslaughter in Dulude’s death. He originally faced three counts of ¿rst-degree murder. A three-month trial in B.C. Supreme Court was avoided with Kozak’s guilty pleas. During sentencing, the court heard how Kozak tortured his victims before killing them. Kozak con¿ned, stabbed, burned and beat Robinson in a trailer near Shawnigan Lake in May 2007. Robinson was then left to die under a

tarp, as revenge for allegedly stealing Kozak’s truck. One year later, Kozak, who was angered by Leask spending $5,000 he was given to start a marijuana growop, hung Leask upside down and beat him during a period of several days before smothering him with a plastic bag. His body was dumped in the ocean off Campbell River. In the fall of 2008, Dulude was shot in the abdomen by a friend of Kozak’s in a garage in Campbell River.

He was wrapped in plastic while still alive and his body was put into the back of a pickup truck. His body was found in December 2008 in an abandoned building owned by a company of Janice Bridges – Kozak’s wealthy girlfriend. In Friday’s sentencing, Justice Williams set parole at 23 years because he took into account Kozak’s guilty pleas which allowed the families to avoid testifying during a court case. — With ¿les from Paul Rudan

Story of a missed schoolbus, a scared family and a missing kid comes to a happy ending Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

T

uesday’s missed school bus spelled a missing boy. But while some kids vanish due to foul play, this story ended happily, with a moral about ¿nding a phone and calling for help, Shawnigan Lake Mounties explain. Shortly after 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, the parents of the 10-year-old lad contacted the Shawnigan Lake RCMP to report him missing after he failed to arrive home after school. The George Bonner Middle School student normally takes the bus from school into Duncan, where he lives with his parents near Maple Bay. He’d just started classes at Bonner this school year. RCMP members visited Bonner’s

staff and the met the pupil’s father. It was determined the boy’s last con¿rmed location was at school after classes were dismissed. It appeared he did not get on his bus. Staff and Mounties took steps to ¿nd the boy, including calling his classmates and friends, plus combing around Bonner, parks and playgrounds, and along routes between the school and the boy’s home. Enquiries were made at area businesses and stores too. A dog squad searched Bonner and vicinity, including forests, farm land and acreages. School staff also called bus staff and described the missing boy to determine if he’d taken another bus home. Around 7:15 p.m. a bus staffer, who’d been at Frances Kelsey Secondary School double-checking

buses for the missing lad, saw him walking along Shawnigan LakeMill Bay Road in front of the high school. She contacted staff at Bonner and took the boy there, where he was reunited with his relieved father. The boy explained he had missed his bus and decided to walk home. But, being new to the area, he got lost and wasn’t sure what to do. Police suggest this story is a good reminder for parents to discuss with their children what to do if they get lost. RCMP urges children to ¿nd a phone at a business, store, public building or elsewhere, and call 911 for help. Shawnigan Lake RCMP thanked staff at George Bonner, and other district staff involved, “for their outstanding assistance in this incident,” said Cpl. Jason Kerr.

Kids karate experts open in Duncan Third Generation Karate Program Opens Today Sensei Leigh Mueller, a 4th degree Black Belt, along with his assistant Jordan Gieble, are opening their fifth Canada’s Best Karate program here in Duncan. The thirty-year old Mueller is bringing his 25 plus years of martial arts experience to the local community. He represents the third generation of one of Canada’s longest running martial arts programs. He himself began his training as a Supertot with Superkids Karate at the age of four. At age 22, he inherited the Victoria based schools from his father, Shihan Bob Mueller. The elder Mueller was a founder of Superkids in the 1980’s and he himself was one of the original students in the 1970’s of Leigh’s godfather, the legendary Jim Mac Donald. Mueller says “It’s the family tradition of action with integrity that I inherited, and it’s the family business of teaching an ‘I Can Attitude’ to kids that we are bringing to our new dojo in Duncan.” The Mueller’s created one of the top Kids Karate programs in Canada with locations on the West Coast and in Toronto, Ontario. They have been teaching children, starting as young

as 4 years old since 1984. Known as the Kids Experts, they were the first program to innovate a karate program that focused on fun, as well as respect and discipline. They subsequently have taught thousands of children all across Canada over the past 30 years.

The new school, located at 81 Trunk Rd. is the first Canada’s Best Karate outside of the Victoria area, here on Vancouver Island. Mueller’s assistant, twenty year old Jordan Gieble, also started his training as a tot at age five. This speaks to the consistency and the quality of the teaching when you have children benefiting so much that they stick to it for years and sometimes decades. The program teaches kids from ages 4 to 12 years and has a teen-adult program as well. Regardless of your age, everyone starts a beginner and no experience is needed.

Trustees have no one to blame but themselves Policy making: Did anyone not see this coming?

I

n Wednesday’s News Leader Pictorial, former Cowichan Valley School Board chairwoman Eden Haythornthwaite served warning the school district is poised to eliminate a requirement the board send all policies to a committee prior to adoption. There are three things worth pondering as the ¿red school board makes its inevitable attack on the administration that took its place. It is incumbent on any public body to do its decision-making in an open, public forum and to reach out to ensure considerable public consultation on any decision that could be a considered a signi¿cant change. Items such as school closures are just one example. School board It is a good thing when the ¿red board gave up the chairwoman — or anyone else for that matter — has decided to watchdog the power to set affairs of the school board. policy However, readers should know bypassing the policy committee is not the end of public scrutiny as we know it. In fact, the committee has been a bone of contention with elected trustees. One camp felt it was a good way to involve parents and employee groups, and led to better decisions. The other felt it gave employees too much inÀuence in district policy and slowed the decisionmaking process to a painful crawl. To be clear — policy committee meetings rarely, if ever, attracted an audience, and representatives of its membership are at virtually every board meeting. But while the policy committee may not be crucial and open government is not yet under seige, there is something in this muddle worth getting ¿red up about. Our trustees — the people we elected nearly a year ago to set priorities and make policy — have abandoned us. They chose a course they knew would get them ¿red and this was the logical consequence. If they are upset a government-appointed outsider is making decisions about Cowichan education, they have no one to blame but themselves.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: Owning of exotic pets The case against

The case for People have domesticated animals for as long as there have been people. Sometimes those animals have served a practical purpose. Other times their role has been simple companionship. Regardless of the role, the vast majority of those relationships have been good for both parties. Exotic animals are no different than cats and dogs. The issue is not species, it is level of care.

The story of Alf has raised the question: “should people be allowed to keep exotic animals as pets?”

He was referring to the biblical character named Judas who sold Christ down the road to the Romans. Cummins meant, I’m sure, that it’s hard to have everyone onside all the time. But, what if the real comparison is that some in his party are playing a nefarious Judas role and trying to sell him (Cummins) down the road? These people going after Cummins have formally outed themselves as the “Friends of the Conservative Party” and are running a slate of seven candidates for the party’s executive, according to news reports. One of those candidates, Ben Besler, is currently a party vice-president and is running against our own Al Siebring for the position of president. On another matter, you don’t have very much money and you are facing an election

There is a pattern to nature, a balance that is real and best left without human interference. The damage wreaked by invasive species is one example, the wanton destruction of ecosystems by humanity is another. Plucking wild animals out of their homes for our selfish pleasures are a third. Tigers are not meant to be petted. Eagles are not meant to be caged.

COWICHAN LEADERS

in eight months, with the actual campaign getting underway in less than seven months. From all reports you are spending more now than you are taking in each month. Again, are you sure you are ready to be taken as a serious alternative to the NDP or the B.C. Liberals? If there was ever a chance to show the province you were ready to step up to the big time, it was in the recent byelection in Chilliwack. But, you came in third in what is arguably one of the most conservative ridings in the province. That’s not very impressive and probably contributed to this movement in the party that wants to get rid of Cummins. A party that is ready for the big time would have found a way to deal with the internal revolt you are facing in a manner that didn’t damage its prospects. But, yours doesn’t seem to have the maturity to do that. I doubt the anti-Cummins faction will suc-

ceed; the only question is by what margin will he succeed? But, the damage will have been done. Fundraising is never easy and it’s even harder when the team isn’t going in the same direction, or your leader is surrounded by controversy. Of even greater concern is that quality candidates are reluctant to step forward when your leader is under attack from within. So, my friends in the B.C. Conservatives, as an active B.C. Liberal supporter I hope you beat yourselves silly at your AGM. Then, maybe you will be willing to consider making sure you don’t give Adrian Dix and the NDP a free pass into government. Patrick Hrushowy is the president of the Cowichan Valley constiuency association of the B.C. Liberal Party. Email him at phrushowy@shaw.ca

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 11

Is Cowichan doing a good job promoting its wine-and-food industry? “Absolutely. It’s not a big economic engine but it is an engine, and we’re already getting more and more people from Victoria and Nanaimo coming to our festivals.”

Pete Keber, Cobble Hill

“Lots of independent, island people (businesses) are doing a good job promoting the wine-andculinary industry, but Cowichan could step it up a touch.”

Innocent pole beginnings on a slippery slope

Provincial watchdogs should be snifÄng around plan carefully

Dear editor Re: pole dancing for kids. Will they eventually want to learn the sexual moves and how old will they be when they ¿gure it out? It will also open doors for them to becoming potential strippers in the future so they can make more money (money makes the world go ‘round). If you want your daughter growing up to hang around degenerates and strip clubs potentially harbouring criminal activity as well as human traf¿cking monsters, then I guess an early education in this area would be a good idea. But it isn’t a good idea is it? I’m sure when the boys ¿nd out what their classmates are into, the remarks, comments and jarring sexual teasing and innuendo might be harmful. If you think it’s ¿ne then there is something wrong with your brain and you don’t understand all the inÀuences that children, teenagers and adults face every day from the media and a greedy evil world. I don’t agree with this. I think it’s naive and ignorant to the reality you live in. Where is our common sense going? Do you actually expect everybody to view pole dancing as a new activity for our children? Jason Frechette

1935: Sikhs

1935: Fairbridge

DATELINE: COWICHAN

by Ann Andersen

Edward, Prince of Wales, waved as the first children for the Prince of Wales Fairbridge Farm School at Cowichan Station left England. Mainly orphans, the youngsters would be educated in the classroom and on the farm.

1935: Latin

There was a colourful parade at the opening of the new Sikh temple at Hillcrest as Karfar Singh marshalled the participants that included the Nanaimo Silver Cornet Band that led the way.

Friday, September 21, 2012

Latin would no longer be part of the curriculum at Duncan Consolidated School, said chairman G. T. Smythe. It would be dropped in favour of more practical studies, he explained.

Chemainus schools divide on racial lines Dateline 1935: Japanese kids sent to hall Ann Andersen

R

acial segregation brings to mind the whites-only schools south of the border up until 50 years ago. At the same time closer to home was the more subtle — but no less appalling — separation of Aboriginals and non-Aboriginals in public places here in Duncan. And in September 1935, 42 Chemainus parents created a ¿restorm when 20 white students were sent to the Japanese community hall while Japanese students were allowed to stay at the Chemainus public school. In a turbulent meeting in the schoolhouse, and after a warning by the superintendent that segregation was not allowed, an almost unanimous vote recommended the white children affected be moved back to the school and young Japanese children now in the school occupy the Japanese community hall. “If the Japanese community hall is not a ¿t place to send our children, then it should not be used by the Japanese children either,” protested Trustee N. F. Lang. He pointed out the board tried to plan for the increase in enrollment by putting a building bylaw before the public six years before. That failed, leaving trustees with no other option than to ¿nd alternative accommodation for the student overÀow.

USE YOUR REWARDS CARD EVERYDAY FOR GREAT SAVINGS

olfers of all ages and abilities teed a bag of bucks to renovate Cowichan hospital’s busy pediatrics ward. The 18th-annual Cowichan District Hospital Foundation’s Charity Golf Pro-Am tourney happened Friday at Cowichan golf club where foundation spokeswoman Amy Trippe Brophy was amped about play that could card some $56,000 to help sick kids and their families. “We’re the only hospital foundation pro-am golf tourney on the island. “We’ve got 152 golfers from all over the Cowichan Valley and a few from up and down the island,� she told the News Leader Pictorial while the event was ongoing.

“We’ll probably clear over $60,000. It’s a big deal,â€? she said, noting last year’s tourney bested that tally. Pros from B.C., Alberta and beyond joined junior golfers plus folks from valley business and local personalities on the links. It’s all about reaching enough green to revamp Cowichan District Hospital’s pediatrics ward into private rooms, she said. “We’ve already started using our dinner-auction proceeds from April, and hopefully this tournament Âżnishes the campaign that’s about $175,000. “We’re totally renovating so all rooms will be private, so mom and dad can spend the night with their child. “That helps children not be scared, and to heal quicker,â€? she explained of fresh wards that will also reduce infections.

Strong turnout as United Way aims to break $300,000 Maeve Maguire

aster of Ceremonies Norm Jackson called for bids from the hungry crowd at the United Way Kick-Off Breakfast held at the Travelodge Silverbridge on Friday, Sept 14. The table with the highest bid would be the Âżrst to Âżll their plates at the breakfast buffet.MP Jean Crowder was the highest bidder with $300, which was matched by an anonymous donor making it a total of $600. And with that, the 2012 United Way fundraising campaign kicked off. The 175 attendees were entertained with speeches from Alan Crisp, United Way president, Linda Whittome, branch manager at Coast Capital Savings Credit Union, and loaned representatives Caley Fox and Lyndon Albury. Special guest speaker John Nash, a retired marketing manager for Island Savings Credit Union and father to NBA basketballer

Steve Nash, reminded attendees that home is about the people you know. “Home is more than the box you live in. It’s the community in which you live.â€? Nash also spoke about the beneÂżt of giving. He relayed a story about the day a First Nations friend caught his Âżrst salmon. His friend’s father gave away the salmon to neighbours walking by. His friend was shocked, but the father said, “If you give something away, you get it back 10 times over.â€? Nash brought a ball signed by his son Steve’s Phoenix Suns teammates from last season, which was auctioned for $300. Emily Zurrer, Olympic bronze medalist in women’s soccer, donated a signed soccer ball which sold for $250. More than 30 prizes were donated, auctioned or given to breakfast attendees. Mark Turner was the Âżrst attendee to say “Ho Ho Hoâ€? into the microphone, for which he won a Santa Claus suit. Turner can wear his new red-and-white suit at this year’s Run for the

Vancouver Island University’s Lyndon Albury, right, enjoys a moment with a friend at the United Way kickoff breakfast Friday Claus, a United Waysponsored event being held on Dec 9. Last year, 250 United Way supporters wearing Santa suits raised $3,000 for the cause. The United Way’s fundraising goal is $300,000. Jackson, who is general manager and head pro at Cowichan Golf & Country Club, believes Cowichan

residents will meet United Way’s goal. “This is the most generous town I’ve ever seen.� Money raised the breakfast and throughout this year’s fundraising campaign will be given back to the community through the 17 local agencies that provide more than 90 programs

and services for approximately 35,500 Cowichan Valley residents. Food bank services, summer camps for children and a food-coupon program are all examples of the support provided by United Way and its member agencies. Visit cowichan.unitedway.ca to make a donation or to learn more.

PUBLIC NOTICE

RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, November 19, 2012 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, February 18, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act� proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

Dramatic, bold, and beautiful, two stars collide on the roller coaster of fame.

Light forms in clay and wood in Richards Trail art show

ARTISTS

Every photographer and gallery owner knows the truth: art only looks as good as its lighting. An exhibit opening today in North Cowichan embraces that concept to the extreme. GelinasCarr Furniture and Margit Nellemann join creative forces in the light CLAY+WOOD exhibit features light in a variety of forms — lamps, lanterns and other brilliant works in a celebration

of the art of lighting. “Sept. 22 marks the beginning of fall in the northern hemisphere. From this moment on, the days start getting shorter than the nights. And it is at this time of the year we like to invite more light into our homes and lives,” Nellemann said in a media release. Joe Gelinas and Sandra Carr of GelinasCarr

Furniture have turned their refined use of local wood lends to lamps, while Nellemann mirrors that focus, except with ceramics. The opening reception for light CLAY+WOOD is tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Margit Nellemann Studio & Gallery, 8350 Richards Trail, North Cowichan. The show runs until Oct. 28.

Theatre plucks up courage in Chickens revival Comedy with a message: Theatre hopes Chickens fly in revival of production last staged in the Festival’s early years Caitlin McKay

hickens is about more than just poultry. Audiences will learn a lot from these clucky birds, in Chemainus Theatres’ upcoming production of the play. Chickens, written by Chemainus Theatre Festival alumna Lucia Frangione, was originally performed in 1995 in Chemainus and got Àapping reviews from critics and audiences. With the 20th anniversary of the theatre, the play is supposed to be a celebration of the past. But with new sets and a new cast, this isn’t your parents’ Chickens. “I didn’t know the piece at all so I came in with completely fresh eyes and vision. I’m feeling excited...I think we have found magic in the piece,” said Sara-Jeanne Hosie, the director/choreographer. “I think in the past it was done with a far more real farm feeling, but this is more storybook, like it exists somewhere else. It is very extravagant and whimsical.” The message of the play is one that everyone can relate to. Frangione encourages her audience to overcome their fears and not be a chicken. “There is a fear in all of us to take the next step and losing someone if we do,” explained Hosie, who last appeared as Patsy Cline at the Chemainus Theatre. “When we meet these characters, they aren’t on the same page and they are trying to get back on the same page. They are looking into their chickens to ¿nd some guidance in their lives.” Often creatively inÀuenced by our neighbours down south, Hosie says she is happy to be working on a Canadian piece. “We just don’t see a lot of Canadian pieces so I think it is exciting to see a Canadian piece. And if you have seen it before, I’m excited for people to see the story and see the new life,” she said. After three weeks of practice, the cast has got a strong bond that shows in their performance. Hosie says the lead actress, Samantha Currie, is a natural ¿t “I read the script and I immediately saw Sam as Liza. It all started with her in my mind. Sometimes you just hear people right away,” she said. The play follows the lives of a rural couple, Pal (Shane Snow) and Liza, who are trying to save their farm from bankruptcy. But the pair has different ideas about what to do with the chickens. After Pal refuses to axe them, Liza issues an ultimatum. Currie says she is able to relate to the play and the struggles of Liza. “There are some real moments in the show that happen all the

Those who remember the original performance of Chickens, remember it fondly. But neither director nor leading lady said they feel pressure to live up to expectations. “There is a lot of excitement to do the piece again from long ago. The only nerves I have is just the natural nerves you have before a show,” said Currie. “But I think the comedy of the show will put the company and the audience at ease.” Chickens is family-friendly, but not a kids’ show. The themes of

the play are ones everyone can relate to. “I think there is something for everyone in the show. There are some funny moments and some moving moments. It is genuinely a show for everyone, from 11 to 90,” said Currie. Your ticket What: Chickens Where: Chemainus Theatre Festival When: Sept. 21 until Oct. 27 Tickets: call 250-246-9820

JOHNSON, James L. Born November 26, 1922 in St. Louis, Missouri, our dear Jim passed into the light in Chemainus on September 14, 2012. Predeceased by his parents, two brothers and four sisters, he is survived by his loving wife, Sheila, his son Jeff (Comox), sister Juanita (Cleveland), and numerous nieces and nephews in the U.S. He will be particularly missed by his nephew Ricky and niece Bunny, both in St. Louis, as well as by his many friends, especially the Concenti family. Having spent his childhood in St. Louis, Jim attained an M.A. from Denver, Colorado, following which he emigrated to Canada, settling ďŹ rst in Prince George. He eventually moved to Gabriola Island, and spent the last forty years in the Cowichan Valley. He was a teacher, singer and choir director whose charisma drew people to him wherever he went. As a singer he performed all over North America and also in Europe. For sixteen weeks in the late sixties he hosted the CBC TV show “Moods of Manâ€?, and along with his friend Harry Aoki ran a family oriented coffee house in Qualicum for several summer seasons. As a teacher, Jim (J.J., Mr.J.) directed awardwinning choirs in high schools in Prince George, Nanaimo, Lake Cowichan, Brentwood College, Shawnigan Lake School, and at Cowichan Secondary from where he retired in 1988. Jim also founded successful community choirs wherever he went: the Cariboo Chorus in the 1950s, the Cowichan Chorale in the 1970s, and in 1983 he started the Concenti Singers along with his wife, Sheila, who still directs the group. In 2003 Jim received the Herbert Drost Award from the B.C. Choral Federation for distinguished service and support of choral music throughout B.C. He was also honoured to be made a Paul Harris Fellow for exceptional community service by the Rotary Club of South Cowichan. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Chemainus Health Care Centre, Jim’s home for the past six months, Drs. Manhas, Ma and Archdeakin, and Dr. Bass who was his family doctor for many years; also Vicki, who is an angel. Lastly, our heartfelt thanks to Andy, whose music helped keep the ame alive in Jim, and whose September 12 “Blues Nightâ€? at CHCC in Jim’s honour was so ďŹ tting. Donations in Jim’s memory may be made to the Chemainus Health Care Centre Foundation Music Programme or the Cowichan Valley Hospice. In memory of Jim, the next time someone asks “How are you?â€? please reply “Better for seeing you!â€?, and mean it, as Jim always did. A celebration of Jim’s life will be held at a later date.

HOWARD, June (Cormier) a long time resident of Vancouver Island, died Saturday the 15th of September due to health complications at the Cowichan District Hospital. June was born in 1922 in Vancouver, BC to Felix and Caroline Cormier. After moving over to Vancouver Island, she married Sedley Howard in 1945 and proceeded to raise her children in Ucluelet, Long Beach, and ToďŹ no before settling in the Cowichan Valley. Everyone who knew June thoroughly enjoyed her sense of humor as she always had a quick remark that could put a smile on your face. And combined with sharp intellect and a direct manner, June had an unforgettable personality. June enjoyed cooking, local bus trips, feeding local cats and dogs, sewing, and the ďŹ ner things in life. She had a passion for moving houses and we would like to thank Uncle Alberts for providing her with an abundance of new furniture over the years, the Shopping Channel for making sure her music library was always current, and Readers Digest for nominating her for Customer of the Year Twice. The matriarch of the family, June was predeceased by her husband Sedley Howard, and is survived by her three sons David, Geoffrey (Brenda) and Stevan (Mercy), and her grandchildren Jennifer, Melanie, Micheal, Spencer, Sara, Amanda, David, Sara, Wesley, Daelyn, Keith, Fauna, Leah and Jake. Her pride and joy were her great-grandchildren Jenna, Amber, Jessica, Isabelle, Bryson, Tinsley, Hayden, Blake, Mia, Kayla, Jayme and Leanne. The family would like to give thanks to all of June’s friends at Georgian Gardens, the staff at Cowichan District Hospital, and Dr. Richard Grimes, of whom she had a special affection. A memorial will be held on Thursday, September 27th at 2pm at the home of Geoffrey and Brenda Howard, 4318 Sunrise Road, Duncan, BC. We ask that in lieu of owers that a donation be made to the SPCA in June’s honor. On line condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Training? What training? Never even ran a marathon: Great Lake Walk winner breaks ďŹ ve hours without training Tamu Miles

Lake Cowichan Gazette

J

ust over 300 runners and walkers set off in the pre-dawn dark for the 2012 Great Lake Walk on Saturday. And though no one broke the 2007 record time of Campbell River man Jason Welland, who ran the 56 kilometres in four hours, 35 minutes, and 28 seconds, this year’s winner Mike Watson is pretty pleased with his time of four hours, 52 minutes, and 26 seconds. “There are some things everyone should try once,â€? said Watson. “I’m not sure this is one of them,â€? he joked as he waited for the students and other participants from Pearson College to cross the Âżnish line. Watson is an economics teacher at the college. This is his Âżrst year participating. He says he wasn’t going to come, but was asked to drive the student transport van and decided he didn’t want to sit around all day waiting while the students and other faculty were participating. Which means, yes, you guessed it, he did not train for the event. “I’ve never run a marathon, this was by far the longest I’ve ever run,â€? said Watson. The Âżrst walker to cross the Âżnish line was Nancy Zegarchuk. Zegarchuk says this was her third year participating and each year she has tried to beat her previous time. The last time she participated, she beat her original time by only seconds, but she was proud to say that this year, she beat it by a whole three minutes. “It’s really fun,â€? said Zegarchuk. “I look forward to it each year.â€? There were many who made this year’s event possible — the Old Age Pensioners who prepared breakfast for the participants, the volunteers who set up the Youbou Hall for the start, and those who

This year’s Great Lake Walk winner Mike Watson is pretty pleased with his time of four hours, 52 minutes, and 26 seconds. set up Centennial Hall for the Âżnish line. Then there were the many organizations manning the rest stops, and volunteers like Rich Elliott from the local Lions Club who spent his day following the last of the walkers around Cowichan Lake. The Lions Club will be presented with this year’s Perpetual Trophy, a large print of one of Michaela Davidson’s works, sometime in early November. The St. John Ambulance service was on hand offering help for everything from blisters to ankle wraps. “We have a degree in ankle wraps,â€? joked attendant Nathan Lebine. In all, the event raised $27,148 in pledges this year.

pirited competition from here, there and everywhere: • Duncan’s Tristin Gait is becoming a 14-yearold racing phenom at Western Speedway. Gait climbed into the driver’s seat again and took the competition by storm during a mammoth 36-car Hornet series event. Only about 16 to 20 were expected, but Saratoga Hornet drivers whose season was over jacked up the ¿eld. “It was mayhem,’’ said Gait’s dad and Marlin Motors sponsor Marlin Gait. Tristin topped them all and, in the process, ended a streak of ¿ve feature wins by Ryan Smith in Wednesday Night Fever events. • Saddleseat riding is alive and well in the valley judging by results of a Vancouver Island Arabian Horse Association open show in Saanich. Two riders from Duncan’s Valley View Farms were in the competition to entertain the crowds and challenge the competitors. Ashley Roe was in the irons atop her saddlebred gelding Diamond High Point for several classes and a championship win in the English Pleasure division. Caiden Varasteh, 11, competed successfully in the in-hand classes and the Walk Trot division with her new Arabian gelding Lochiel. They earned many ribbons and a ¿rst place in the Walk Trot Pleasure Horse class. • Arbutus Ridge Golf Club champions were crowned after two days of competition. Colleen Wheatley won the ladies’ low gross with a 162. A 133 score landed Moira Lucas low net honours. Low gross in the men’s division went to David Simmonds with a 154. Bob Stimpson topped the low net standings at 133. Simmonds also claimed the junior low gross and the junior low net winner was Darien Lattanzi.

oth the Cowichan Midget and Bantam Bulldogs suffered rare shutout losses at the same time in Vancouver Mainland Football League action. The Bantam ‘Dogs were blanked in Langley 37-0 by the Mustangs while the Midget ‘Dogs went down 18-0 at North Delta to the Longhorns. The defence played a hard-hitting game, according to midget head coach Doug Williams, but the offense just couldn’t click. Blake Torok-Both was out with an injury and the timing and Àow was off. “It all started with not having enough time for our pre-game ritual, then with a mistake on the coin toss, giving North Delta the ball at the start of the ¿rst and

second halves,’’ noted Williams Brock Gowanlock and Kevin Gabriel led the team in tackles, with Drayson Price not far behind. The Cowichan junior bantams beat the Victoria Spartans 2-0 in a hockey-like score. The only points came on a safety. “The game was very physical and very much a defensive battle,’’ noted Cowichan coach Trent Jones. “The whole team really stepped up play and worked together to pull out the win. We were missing ¿ve key players which meant that a lot of kids had to play both ways and I sure was proud of the effort that was given by all the players.’’ Rookie linemen Chase Godin and Bradley Wilson both showed great hustle. Kaitlyn Wright, another rookie, stepped in at safety and made a touchdown-saving tackle. Brayden Belton and Alex Van Ryk were other standouts.

The fundraising ball tournament named after his son Cody has now been running 14 years, raising money for other families who may wind up in the same situation as the Swains when Cody was diagnosed with childhood cancer. “It’s money we raise, we never want to give out,’’ said Wes. The reality is the money will be given out. A new case was just discovered, in fact. “The sadness of the whole thing, we get an email coming through about a little girl from Bench school who’s been diagnosed,’’ said Wes. “We haven’t been con-

Fox’s brother provides insight into legendary runner Frances Kelsey visit: Students take messages to heart in cancer campaign Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

S

tudents at Frances Kelsey Secondary School have already been going the extra mile to raise money for cancer through the Terry Fox and Tour de Rock campaigns. The Kelsey Cancer Campaign received an added boost Monday with a visit to the school by Fred Fox, Terry’s brother, who told the students about the Marathon of Hope runner’s amazing determination and dedication. It’s been more than 32 years since Terry aborted his run across Canada at Thunder Bay, Ont. on Sept. 1, 1980 after cancer spread to his lungs. He died on June 28, 1981, a month shy of his 23rd birthday. That was long, long before current Kelsey students were born. Yet, they’ve learned his story, embraced it and found out a lot more information about him from Fred Fox’s presentation. The Kelsey service club and the peer counsellor’s group that make up the KCC have been going strong since May with bake sales and all sorts of fund-

raising activities. A tug-of-war was held at the school prior to Fred Fox’s appearance and the school’s own Terry Fox Run is slated for Oct. 3. “We’re trying to do as many fun things as we can to raise money,’’ said Mary-Kate Cross, who’s spearheading the student efforts under the KCC. “We want it to be something celebrated at the school.’’ While fundraising is a big part of the campaign, it goes beyond that. “More than anything, just raise awareness,’’ said Cross. “We de¿nitely want to keep it going. This is something the Grade 9s are going to remember forever.’’ Certainly, Fred Fox gave a memorable speech to a rapt audience, split into two groups in order to accommodate everyone in the gym. “It’s great to know Frances Kelsey is continuing what Terry started in 1980,’’ said Fred. “When Terry was diagnosed with cancer, he was very close to your guys’ age.’’ Fred was only 14 months older than Terry. “Terry and I, when we were younger, we did everything together — we competed, we fought,’’ said Fred.

“Terry was always competitive. I could tell you he was overly competitive. He hated to lose when he was younger. “We were taught you didn’t quit. You ¿nish what you start.’’ Terry certainly carried that through after starting out as benchwarmer for his basketball team in Grade 8 in Port Coquitlam. “By the time he got to Grade 10, he was a starter and captain of the team,’’ said Fred. “That came out of hard work and determination.’’ Terry had a knee injury in March of 1977, Fred said, and “he probably shouldn’t have ignored it. He couldn’t put any weight on his right leg.’’ He was 18 and diagnosed with a type of bone cancer. “All I could think of saying was ‘Terry, why did this have to happen to you?’’’ said Fred. “Without hesitation, Terry said ‘Fred, why not me? This is just another challenge for me to overcome.’’’ After amputation and being ¿tted with an arti¿cial leg, Terry was undeterred, Fred said. “The doctors couldn’t believe it, how determined he was. They’d never seen that before.’’ Before his Marathon of Hope,

Terry always wanted to run across Canada. The cancer didn’t stop him from trying, running 3,339 miles from Newfoundland to Thunder Bay — a marathon a day for 143 days — before the spread of the disease became unbearable. The ¿rst Fox run was held in September of 1981 and it’s become a world-wide phenomenon. “Terry would be so proud to know young people like yourselves are continuing this,’’ Fred said.

Capsule Comments O

ur bodies are amazing. The level of acidity in our blood is held quite constant at a pH of 7.35-7.45 no matter what we do. (Anything above 7 is alkaline.) The pH of our urine can change with our diet but the pH of our blood remains pretty well the same. We are entering the autumn season soon and it’s a good time to remind everyone about hand-washing. It is the best way to prevent colds, flus and many other infectious diseases. Do it often throughout the day for at least 20 seconds per wash. This is especially important after blowing your nose, using the toilet, playing with pets or changing baby’s diaper. Perhaps even shaking hands? The increase in social networking during the past few years has prompted research projects studying its addiction potential. The projects concluded that social media can be more addictive than tobacco. It takes up much of some people’s spare time and its seeming low cost just makes it that much more desirable. We are born with 100,000 hair follicles on our heads. Hair falls out and renews itself routinely throughout our lives. But, sometimes these hair follicles become stressed and hair starts to fall out and not grow back. Causes can be emotional or physical shock, hormonal (postpartum, stopping birth control pills), severe dieting and high fever among others. If you are concerned, check with your physician.
