EDC abolished Commisson to be replaced by three advisory panels Sharron Ho Sooke News Mirror

Harvest fan Owen, 13 months, plays with a watering can at the Harvest Feast held on Sunday, Sept. 23 at the Sunriver Community Garden.

Mayor Wendal Milne proposed to disband the Economic Development Commission in favour of three mayor advisory panels at the last EDC meeting on Sept. 19. “It’s a matter of time to create an environment where people can think tank without bureaucratic restrictions on them,” Milne said. He said over the summer, discussions with EDC members and councillors have found the current EDC model did not bring results. “We’ve got two or three groups of people that have different interests in what they’re trying to accomplish and you put them all at the same table and potentially it allows the spinning of the wheels. “By putting everybody together a lot of people felt it was too cumbersome, too unwieldy. A lot of their evenings were going over minutes, debating and discussing and they weren’t really able to brainstorm an issue.” The three mayor advisory panels include: economic development issues, chaired by Royal Roads University vice-president, Stephen Grundy; arts and beautification, chaired by former councillor, Brenda Parkinson; and health and social initiatives, chaired by Sooke Family Resource Society executive director, Nicky Logins. A council liaison has been

assigned to each panel, including Milne for arts and beautification, Coun. Bev Berger for health and social issues, and Coun. Maja Tait for economic development. The liaisons may or may not attend the meetings, and will act as a direct access to council. “These three groups of people have direct access to council through me, and if it doesn’t get to council, I’ll bear the brunt of it,” Milne said. The District of Sooke will be responsible for providing advertising and meeting space. Each meeting will be open to the public to gather like-minded people who have an expertise in the panel’s jurisdiction. “Whoever wants to come should be able to come to this open meeting, and they should sit down in a room... and brainstorm,” Milne said. Milne said once an idea comes into “fruition,” staff will be made available to develop a

report to bring to council. “My suggestion tonight is not to say that this commission has not done anything or is not doing what we think, but I’d like to look at a better way to do it,” Milne said, adding the panels will go through a one-year trial period. Maja Tait, EDC Chair, thanked the commission’s members and addressed mounting criticism of the EDC. “I feel that I have exceptional talent in this room with all of you sitting here, and I feel that I’m not able to fully access the talent that you bring to the table,” she said. “Lately I feel that I’m spinning tires a bit and moving a bit sideways and putting out a lot of media related fires.” In terms of the dissolution of the EDC, Tait said it is moving a step forward. “By having these panels it doesn’t mean that we’re taking it out of the public eye. We’re just focusing on key ideas in those various panels and making stuff happen and really sort of grasping the talent,” she said, stating procedures like Schedule As and service agreements bogged down previous meetings. It is expected the same amount of money budgeted for the EDC will be provided to the panels. This year, $32,500 was budgeted, with $11,000 pre-committed. The proposal to disband the EDC will be brought to council on Oct. 8.

Volunteer built dam will be bulldozed Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

There is not one person or group in the Sooke area that is involved with the salmon fishery that doesn’t think decommissioning the Bill James Dam on DeMamiel Creek is a good thing. In fact it is just the opposite. Despite letters, phone calls and media attention, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is unwavering in its plan to bulldoze the earthen dam near the headwaters of DeMamiel Creek. The dam was built in the 1970s by a group of volunteers with a $27,000 LIP grant. At the time, they set up a kitchen, picnic tables and even outhouses for the use of the close to 100 volunteers who worked on the dam. They had loggers and housewives, commercial fishermen and grandmas all with the same goal in mind — building a dam to control the water flow into DeMamiel Creek for the

benefit of the salmon that spawn there. The Sooke Lions Club coordinated the efforts, with Percy Brown of Becher Bay sparking the efforts. The idea then, as it is now, was to store water so it could be released into DeMamiel Creek during the low water periods in the summer. It was to help maintain and increase the coho salmon stocks which are crucial to the fishery.The salmon run at DeMamiel is the largest run on South Vancouver Island. The dam was rebuilt in 1998 at an estimated cost of over $250,000 and again much of the work was done by volunteers. Glen Varney, who was part of a rebuild in 1998, says the issue of decommissioning the dam is a “hot potato” issue. The decision to decommission is due in part to the failure of the Testalinden Lake dam in Oliver. But, the Bill James dam is not the same, said Varney. “When the dam let go in Oliver, the province looked at all water licenses with dams. It

was an embarrassment for DFO (the Testalinden Lake dam),” said Varney. Varney said the control valve installed by DFO for the Bill James dam was put on the wrong side. It was placed on the downstream side where it should have been in the upstream or middle portion. “It is pretty embarrassing on DFO’s part not to put the valve on the right part.” After the dam let go in Oliver, an assessment was needed for

the Bill James dam and Varney stated that an engineer’s report would cost about $50,000 along with another $50,000 to repair the location of the valve. “From a volunteer standpoint, there are people willing to go up and do it and it would cost very little,” said Varney. The dam is for water storage and prior to DFO removing the control valve, it was opened up in late July and closed in early March. It was one of

three water storage units controlled by the Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society. The society regulates flow from Young Lake on a daily basis to monitor flow into the lower part of DeMamiel Creek. But DFO has made plans, as outlined in their email response. “The Department plans to complete decommissioning the dam on DeMamiel Creek in the summer of 2013. A technical analysis of the dam’s storage and release capabilities

indicates that it does not release enough water to provide a tangible benefit to downstream salmon habitat and coho salmon. DFO will be working with the property owner, TimberWest, to revegetate the area around the dam and to ensure the land is returned to a stable and natural state,” said Kirsten Ruecker, communications advisor for Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Pacific Region. editor@sookenews mirror.com

COLD SORES Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus, HSV-1, and Àrst appear three to seven days after exposure to the virus, and may last up to two weeks. These sores are very contagious and very common. Once acquired, the virus will permanently lie dormant in the body until triggered by fever, a cold, exposure to the sun, stress, or depression of the immune system. Cold sores start out as a tingling or itchy sensation on the outer lip area. Swelling may start a day later with the formation of a blister a few days later. A soft crust or ulcer forms and usually lasts four to Àve days. Finally, redness and swelling of the ulcer forms around the tenth day when it Ànally starts to heal.

Ron Kumar Pharmacist/Owner

There are a number of vitamins, amino acids and topical preparations available, both over the counter and by a prescription from your doctor, that may shorten the duration or avert the formation of the blister.

Car wash plans get go ahead Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

A proposed car wash/laundromat development behind Village Food Markets is one step closer to being built after it was given the green light by District of Sooke council on Sept. 18. Public Hearings for the Murray Road “car wash” were held on Sept. 10 and Sept. 18 and the public got a chance to express their opinions on the proposal to build a car wash. The proponents were seeking a site specific Text Amendment to the Town Centre Commercial 2-South (CTC2) Zone to allow “car wash” as a permitted principal use. Most people who came before the

microphone were not opposed to a car wash but rather to the location and what they perceived as development contrary to the Official Community and Town Centre Plans. Issues of traffic congestion, pedestrian-friendly areas, preferential treatment, nimbyism, and environmental concerns were all brought before council during the two sessions of the public hearing. Doug Wittich, speaking for the property owners/developers J.C.B. Holdings, said this was the first time he has been through a public process such as this. He was impressed and said he had tremendous respect and appreciation for the people who got up to speak on the project.

“I appreciate the fact of the immense level of respect for both parties,” said Wittich. “The whole process was amazing, I had to leave my trust with council.” Wittich said he was “thrilled” that it was done as it had been emotional. He encouraged everybody to step up before council and speak their mind. Robert Martin, one of the opponents, said there was no issue with the car wash just with the location. Mayor Wendal Milne said he felt the decision was very difficult as there was an equal number of people for and against the car wash. He said the car wash is something the community needs and would be an asset to the community.

“It was a good exercise and I think they (opponents) understand the Logan group will do a good job,” said Milne. Before the vote, Mayor Wendal Milne said council does not take the OCP or the Town Centre Plan lightly. “They are not specific. They are visionary,” he said. “In reality the town centre has shifted to Mariners’ Village, that puts Murray Road on the periphery in my opinion.” He also stated that voting for the car wash was not an assist to business and was no different than rezoning a chunk of residential property to CD zone. Council voted five to two in favour of third reading. Opposed were

N HO OPE

councillors Kevin Pearson and Maja Tait. Both Pearson and Tait stated that this was a difficult decision for them and Pearson said the OCP lacked clarity. “It’s a tough thinking process for me, and I’m not happy about that,” said Pearson. Tait said there were pros and cons to both sides of the issue. Prior to final adoption of Bylaw 545, the owner have to enter into a Development Agreement by way of a section 219 covenant with the District of Sooke, to be executed by the mayor and the chief executive officer. They will also release Covenant FB152757 and approve the Modification Agreement to the covenant.

Latching on to breastfeeding Sharron Ho Sooke News Mirror

Sooke will be joining the global Breastfeeding Challenge on Saturday, Sept. 29, where mothers and their babies around the world latch on at the same time. “It’s really just bringing everybody together with common ground as well as raising awareness,� said Sara Wallis, local Breastfeeding Challenge co-ordinator. “The whole premise behind it is to sort of get the information out there about breastfeeding.� Wallis, who is a fourth year nursing student at the University of Victoria, said information will be collected on how

many moms and babies participated in Sooke, which will be shared on the Quintessence Foundation website. The foundation focuses on educating health professionals and public on breastfeeding. The local event will take place at the Reading Room, on 6660 Sooke Rd., with registration at 10:30 a.m. and latch on at 11 a.m, following a countdown. This year, the team will be named the Sooke Mommies. After the Breastfeeding Challenge, there will be an informal discussion and introduction session. “We’re trying to create community, but in doing that I want to be able to bring in some of theresourcesthatmoms

can access in order to be able to meet other moms and meet other women with similar situations,� Wallis said. She said mothers who feed pumped breast milk to their babies and family members are also welcome to come along. “Some moms are pumping breast milk and that’s fine, too. That’s still another way of latching on so they’re more than welcome to come.� Wallis said a few benefits of breastfeeding include passing on immunity to your child, reducing the risk of breast cancer in women, and providing babies with a natural source of nutrition in terms of calorie and fat intake.

“I would never solely just say breastfeeding is the only way to go but we still want to create awareness,� she added. According to Wallis, Sooke joined the Breastfeeding Challenge a few years ago with a total 12 participants. She does not expect a large number of participants as there are only an average of 180 babies born in Sooke each year. The Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge started in B.C. in 2001, with 856 babies and mothers at 26 sites. In 2011, there were 4,466 participants in the challenge in 16 countries.

EXTENDED OPEN BURNING RESTRICTION Due to the hot dry weather and the continued EXTREME fire risk within the District of Sooke, it is likely the NO BURNING season will be extended into the beginning of October. Unless significant rain is received before Sept. 30 the ban on all outdoor burning (with the exception of small controlled campfires) will continue until further notice. Once the BURNING BAN is lifted, said Fire Chief Steve Sorensen, be aware that there have been recent changes to the back yard burning regulations. Check out the District of Sooke website www.sooke.ca for additional information. Beginning Oct. 1, daily updates of local burning information can be obtained from the District Hotline at 250 642-1612.

Black Press

Kitimat Clean Ltd. has applied for environmental assessment of a proposed oil refinery, after commissioning a poll that found nearly three out of four B.C. residents support the idea. A province-wide phone survey conducted during September found 78 per cent of respondents were aware of the proposal to build a large refinery at Kitimat to process Alberta heavy crude oil. Provincially, 72 per cent either favoured or were “somewhat supportive” of the proposed $13 billion refinery, which would ship gasoline, diesel and aviation fuel to market rather than tankers of diluted bitumen. Kitimat Clean president David Black said he was pleasantly surprised that so many people have heard of the refinery proposal, and that most support the idea. “Obviously the concept has struck a chord with the public,” he said. Black remains chairman of Black Press Ltd., and formed Kitimat Clean as a separate company to pursue the refinery project. He is financing the provincial environmental assessment for it, which he

Progress Board, an advisory panel set up to examine economic and social development of the province. His interest was renewed when Enbridge Inc. applied for federal approval to build the Northern Gateway pipeline from northern Alberta’s oil sands to a new tanker port at Kitimat. The Enbridge project has met strong opposition from communities, aboriginal groups and environmentalists, much of it based on the threat of a tanker spill on B.C.’s North Coast. Black argues that a refinery not only reduces

OUR VIEW

A Sooke success story The Sunriver Community Garden “is a sanctuary and everyone feels that when they come here.” Those are the sentiments of our MLA John Horgan. He was present at the first Harvest Feast on Sunday and his comments were right on the mark. Apparently a lot of other people thought so too. More than 250 people came together to enjoy the harvest season at the garden on Sunday. Phoebe Dunbar, one of the visionaries of the allotment garden, said they were a victim of their own success as she hustled about taking care We cannot of things. If this community give over needs anything done, just ask a person like Phoebe. arable She is not alone though. land to There is something about houses and gardens that brings out the best in people. The concrete... community garden is building community more than any other event or place in Sooke. This is one initiative of the last council that is one huge success. Future councils need to build on this and look at ways of getting community gardens in other areas of Sooke. It should be a mandatory amenity asked for from large developments, if there is the land for it. It also brings home the fact that we need to ensure our agricultural/growing lands are preserved. We cannot give over arable land to houses and concrete parking lots. We need natural fields and pastures as green space. The template is there, it works and Sooke could become the model for community building. We can make it happen, all it takes is a vision and the will... and a little land from the developers.

OTHER VIEWS

Explaining the change to the EDC This council is committed to seniors, youth and families at risk. Our focus has and will continue to be the well being of the community as a whole. I believe economic development is about ensuring the economy of the district grows and that in doing so, the well being of everyone must be considered. As Mayor, I am recommending to council that the Economic Development Commission, as we know it is, abolished and we move to an arm’s length advisory process to better achieve these goals. Economic development and community well being will only come if we create the opportunity for people with expertise in their various areas of interest, to get together in an environment with the sole mandate of coming up with ideas, A s a result my recommendation to council will be to dissolve the Economic Devel-

opment Commission and create the following three Advisory Panels to the Mayor; 1. The Advisory Panel to the Mayor on Economic Development to be chaired by Dr. Steve Grundy, Vice President Royal Roads University, 2. The Advisory Panel to the Mayor on Arts and Beautification to be chaired by Brenda Parkinson, former councillor and; 3. The Advisory Panel to the Mayor on Community Health and Social Initiatives to be chaired by Nicky Logins, Executive Director of the Sooke Family Resources Society. The District will advertise the meetings for each of these groups. The meetings will be open to any members of the public who wish to attend. Funds will be budgeted annually in the district budget in amounts similar to what was budgeted for economic development in

the past, but will include economic, arts/beautification and community health/social initiatives. As the panels come up with ideas staff will be assigned to assist in bringing the ideas to council to consider what assistance and/or funding should be approved. The panels need to be able to come up with ideas that will move the community forward without being encumbered by bureaucratic processes. The chairs of each of these panels will have direct access to the mayor and the council with their ideas. I invite all members of the community to become involved in a panel or panels bringing with you ideas that will further the well being of the community. We need everyone to take a turn rowing this boat we call Sooke. Mayor Wendal Milne

Keep road open I read Mike Hicks’ letter to the editor in the Sooke News Mirror, (“Road closure not favoured,” Sept.19), feeling deflated and discouraged. No doubt, being the director in the Juan de Fuca region would be a taxing and very difficult job, and my feeling is Mike Hicks has done some decent work in this position. However, giving up so easily on a key component for a long range vision for the region as a draw for international tourism due to a relatively small, vocal group of constituents seems like the wrong decision to me. Putting the desires of few, before the needs of many is no way to govern. The long term economic health of the entire region relies on tourism for its foundation. This, I feel, is a truism. I would be interested to hear solid arguments to prove that wrong. The roadways, particularly Highway 14, will not be upgraded in order to just save lives and decrease accidents. Unfortunately, public safety is often trumped by the mighty dollar. Ironically, it is the use of this roadway as a ‘tourism attraction,’ which ultimately will draw much needed investment in improving it and making it safer. Fatalities, injuries and accidents will not trigger timely, meaningful investment in the

This was on the September long weekend, and I braved it out and looked through the bags of garbage. Low and behold, you won’t believe what I found. Yes, it was somebody’s papers with their name on it. I couldn’t believe people would throw their garbage out with their name on something in there. You know who you are. There was also a garbage bag with someone else’s papers with their

So, hopefully this person(s) will receive a fine for illegal dumping on other people’s property. It is a constant problem going on and it is about time that these dumpers get a hefty fine and learned a lesson from this. It is an awful sight to see everyday while travelling down any road in Sooke. We should be proud of our town as we have visitors visiting from all around the world and they don’t need to see this. Wonder what they think of our town when they see this illegal dumping and go back home and tell their friends? Let’s keep our eyes open and report illegal dumping before it gets too much out of hand.

Cont’d from page 9 with garbage bags in the back of their vehicle. About 10 minutes later, they drove back down empty. Now what do you think that they were doing? They dumped off a carcass of a dead animal on our property. It was all bagged up and over night a bear or some other animal tore the bags open and left the remains out on the road. We do not appreciate this kind of dumping. Would the two vehicle drivers who did this, as you have been spotted, please be kind enough and come and pick up your garbage and debris. Our property is not the Sooke dump. We would much appreciate it if you would do this, and go and dispose of it the legal and proper way, as it doesn’t cost that much to dump at the proper dump, instead of somebody elses property. C.J.

It’s all water under the bridge

LETTERS Well, it’s official. Sooke is getting a car wash in the lane beside Village Foods. The vote was 5 to 2 in favour of the rezoning change. So much for respecting the original zoning that was passed only 10 months ago. Rob and I realized we have been fighting an uphill battle ever since the sign went up in May that said “Future Home of Car Wash.” If that isn’t prejudicial language, then I don’t know what is. Just to be clear, a laundromat was never in dispute. I feel confident to say there was still no site specific reason given for overriding the Official Community Plan (OCP), the Town Centre Plan or the recently passed Zoning Bylaw 500, except that the developer wants to do this and council is eager to have any development in town. In fact that is pretty much it, council just wants to “get something going.” I knew we were sunk the moment the mayor started off the public hearing with a

3-D fly-through sales pitch from the developer. Apparently this development will only be around 15 years and then it will be torn down and redeveloped to some higher use. Can’t say I believe this and I’m not sure anyone will remember this statement in 15 years time. It was frustrating not to be able to speak to council’s comments after the close of the Public Hearing as I feel a lot of points didn’t make sense. For example: they said the OCP is ambiguous but in the case of automotive services in this location, the OCP is 100 per cent clear and Bylaw 500 backs it up. In fact, the author and urban designer behind the Town Centre Plan weighed in to say this was the wrong location for a car wash. Another comment: a couple of councillors said that Murray Road is not really part of the town centre. But I don’t think the councillors have the right to say what is and is not part of the town cen-

tre. The town centre is defined by the OCP and the Town Centre Plan. Within moments, another councillor remarked that we are premature in calling the proposed Waterview Street the new focal point of the town centre as much of this road goes through private land and could conceivably never happen. Comments about a shifting town centre made no sense and currently the only reliable guide we have to the town centre is the Town Centre Plan. Anyway, it’s all water under the bridge now. Rob and I tried our best and for that I don’t regret. It was an excellent opportunity to meet our neighbours and I feel closer to this community as a result. It was interesting to get involved with the public process and if the decision was solely based on the numbers of people who wrote letters to council, took the time to speak at the public hearings or simple show up to support us, we would have

None existent power Oops, Mr. Gary Murphy’s response regardingsmartmeterssounds somewhat logical, but he forgot to mention that according to BC Hydro (confirmed three times), each household, regardless of size or income, is allocated or allowed 22.1918k/w hours per day on step one of the two tier system. After that everything moves to step two and you pay top rate.

www.sookenewsmirror.com

A family of four can use that 22.1918 k.w hours per day before breakfast, since a standard-sized fridge uses 1,000 watts of power as soon as you open the door, (1,000 watts-1 k.w hour), a microwave is the same, a heating element in a hot water tank uses 3,000 watts, a regular stove oven used 5,000 watts, a regular electric heatinf system used 5,000 watts (that’s without lights), coffeemakers, washing machines, dryers, toasters, vacuum

cleaners and so on, according to BC Hydro. At the same time, having a hydro bill double, then double again without anything in the household changing over a period of 20 years says something, and this is right across the board. With that in mind, our research also included having households tested in order to establish what was drawing that much power where it wasn’t before a smart meter was installed. It can’t be done, there isn’t

anything that exists that can draw that much power to make a hydro bill skyrocket to that extent. In fact it was thought at first that the meter was in fact reading no less than four households and combining all into into. The fact is Mr. Murphy, that since the instigation of the two tier system hydro bills have gone right through the roof and those on low and fixed incomes can no longer afford to run their heating because they pay top rate if

they do. Over a 30-day period the k.w allocation on step one equals 664.754 k/hours. After that’s used up the number of hours on step two is over 2,000, and nobody can afford that, taking into account that they’re not using that much power to begin with. When asked, BC Hydro’s response is always the same. Why smart meteres? Because they give a more accurate reading. Of what? Of power that doesn’t exist. Barry Turner Sooke

Eight-year-old Nai’a Johnson will be chopping off her long, brown tresses as part of a Cops for Cancer fundraising effort. Johnson, whose wavy hair cascades down past her waist, will be cutting it up to her ears for the Cops for Cancer head shave on Oct. 3 at Ecole Poirier elementary school. The ballerina and Ecole Poirier student became inspired to be a part of the head shave after witnessing her peers shear off their locks last year. “She was really impressed last year and talked about it when she came home from school last year, and kept talking about it,� said mother, Laura-Lee Johnson. Nai’a also told her mother she wanted to help children with

She set a fundraising goal of $2,000, which she met through efforts like receiving donations from friends and family and collecting bottles. The severed hair, which will be over twofeet in length, will also be donated to make a wig for cancer patients.

The Jordan River flume Today it might be hard to imagine that the flow of water that powered the generators at the Jordan River plant that produced the electricity to serve Greater Victoria was carried on the wooden flume shown here. The Daily Colonist reported on Friday November 26, 1948: “Seventy-five feet of water flume serving the Jordan River power plant of BC Electric Rlwy Co Ltd was swept away by a landslide early yesterday morning, resulting in a drastic cut in electricity for the city. The flume, constructed entirely of wood, is six feet deep and eight feet wide.” The 1948 Daily Colonist went on: “Large industries were immediately affected … local shipyards made a partial halt in operations … many householders made voluntary power cuts … Approximately 60 % of the power served to the lower end of the Island comes from the Jordan River plant, BC Electric officials said.” With construction beginning in 1909, the

hydro-electric system developed at Jordan River was a monumental undertaking of engineering that at its peak employed one thousand men, under the direction of Superintendent Duncan Irving Walker. Once the system was in place, with the flume carrying water 5 ¼ miles from Diversion Dam to the forebay reservoir, thence via penstocks to the plant, most workers moved on. A substantial community of operational staff, however, remained at the river mouth, resulting in a significant hydro payroll for Jordan River well past mid-century. Maintenance of the

flume, perched precipitously along steep hillsides, was an ongoing challenge. For three decades Albert Sjoberg was maintenance supervisor, with crew access along the route provided via a narrow gauge railway. Ted Banner joined the maintenance crew in 1942, later serving as a supervisor, stationed with his wife Frances at the upper level of Camp 2 until his 1965 retirement. Ted’s son Cliff Banner, a Company employee as well, recalled: “… the flume with its footings just clung on the rocks in places – it had all been built by hand …” Originally cedar, the

flume had been rebuilt mainly with Douglasfir in 1926. The tons of water it carried meant major work was required again by the late 1950s, lining with plywood. Several of the men in those repair crews, young fellows at the time, may be seen about town today, including Hilly Lewis, Evan Haldane, Bobby Nelson and Ross Pitre. When the hydro system was re-developed in 1971, the flume’s service was over, and crews engaged in salvaging the lumber. Elida Peers, Historian Sooke Region Museum

Arts & Entertainment Sooke and its orchestra: a 15-year affair Pirjo Raits/Pat Phillips Sooke News Mirror

If music be the food of love, play on... and on and on! Back in 1998, Sooke fell in love with its new philharmonic orchestra. The affair has lasted 15 years and it is just getting better and better. Join us in celebrating the creation of the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra by Maestro Norman Nelson and handful of musicians those many years ago.

Maestro Nelson

Norman

“I’m a very lucky guy,” said Norman Nelson. “I’ve been able to continue my work. I’m doing exactly the same as I did at the University of Alberta but I have my own orchestra. I’m lucky and privileged that things work out so well in Sooke... including the multitude of helpers who give their time and energy to keep us going. Where else but in Sooke? I’m

absolutely delighted and look forward to another 15 years.” Nelson was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal this year and received the Orchestras Canada Betty Webster Award in 2007. In July, the Sooke Philharmonic celebrated the 10th annual Fling in the Park. The orchestra has grown considerably and now has its own chorus and the Sooke Philharmonic Society, which manages the orchestra. Musicians from the SPO participate in numerous music-related activities in the Sooke community, including the music program at Journey middle school, the Sooke Fine Arts show, the Rotary Auction, and Ayre Manor. The new season begins in October with the Celebration of Young Artists featuring soloist Alice Haekyo Lee, winner of the 2012 Don Chrysler Concerto Competition. Two performances, one in Sooke on Oct. 27 and the other at Alix Goolden Hall in Victoria on Oct. 28. This season of concerts presents a wide variety of programmes, from the youth-oriented to a Christmas concert, French music to the Slavic. On Feb. 17, 2013 there will be a special event in the Prestige Oceanfront Resort Ballroom. Tea and Symphony will include danceable tunes performed by the Chamber Orches-

Hope still lives on

"

Sharron Ho Sooke News Mirror

Today marks the 11th anniversary of the disappearance of Sooke teenager Jesokah Adkens. Although Adkens disappeared without a word over 10 years ago, hope still lives on, with a memorial site being replenished with flowers and sentimental mementoes periodically. The unanswered questions and search for the Adkens continues until this day, with her case still listed as “active� on the Missing Children Society of Canada website. Adkens, who was 17 at the time, was last seen at a bus stop on the 6000-block of Sooke Rd at 9 p.m on Sept. 26, 2001. She did not step on the bus and has not been seen since.

Where in the World? The directors of the Otter Point & Shirley Resident & Ratepayers Association travelled from Otter Point to Shirley for a holiday and stopped to read the Sooke News Mirror. Enjoying the trip were Fiona McDannold, Brenda Mark, Sandy Barta, Bob Phillips, Caroline Larsen, Marika Nagasaka and Arnie Campbell.

The Pastor's Pen Sights and Sounds of Ella Beach Ella Beach is a wonderful spot to take in the sights and sounds of nature. One can enjoy the ocean sparkling and the Olympic Peninsula in the distance. The sound of the waves breaking and the pebbles rolling as the water advances and recedes on the shore give a calming feeling. Seagulls call to each other while smaller birds twitter in the bushes nearby add to the pleasant feelings that Ella Beach gives. Nature offers us a quiet time to reÀect and be thankful for many blessings in our lives like family, including our pets. Jesus must have also enjoyed the natural surroundings where he lived and ministered. He wanted us to care for all of God’s creatures as well as for each other. St. Francis of Assisi followed Jesus’ example of caring for animals and birds as well as for helping the poor. He is remembered and honoured by many for his love of nature and all of God’s creatures, and so on Saturday, October 6th, in honour of St. Francis, St. Rose of Lima parish will host a blessing of pets. The blessing will take place at 11:00 am on the lawn at St. Rose of Lima church 2191 Townsend Rd. All are welcomed to bring their pets for a blessing.

Strange jellyfish showing up in East Sooke Louise Paterson sent along these photos of jellyfish at Becher Bay. She said she had not seen these types of jellyfish previously and thinks they have something to so with climate change. Jellyfish is the common name for many species referred to as cnidarians. In the water they are graceful creatures but once landed on shore they look like blobs of a gelatinous mass. They are often abundant in coastal waters in late summer. The tentacles can give a nasty sting so it is best to leave this animal alone. Meat tenderizer is supposedly a good antidote of stings. A group of jellyfish is sometimes called a bloom or a swarm. Anothercollectivename for a group of jellyfish is a smack, although this term is not commonly used by scientists who study jellyfish. Jellyfish are “bloomy” by nature of their life cycles, being produced by their benthic polyps usually in the spring when sunshine and plankton increase, so they appear rather suddenly and often in large numbers, even when an ecosystem is in balance.

Donating because of help received Sharron Ho Sooke News Mirror

A Sooke man is hoping to build awareness on health management after his own personal brush with cancer. Bren Keetch, 73, received the surprise of his life when he was diagnosed with lung cancer after what he thought would only be knee surgery in February. “I got diagnosed with cancer in my left lung, purely by accident,” he said. Following a CT scan, an abnormality in Keetch’s left lung caught the attention of the knee surgeon and technician. Testing was performed at the Vancouver cancer clinic, and a short two months after his knee surgery, Keetch was wheeled in to remove a majority of his left lung. “I never thought such a thing would happen to me. I’ve always been

Although he is a former smoker, Keetch said the cause behind his diagnosis is still up in the air. In 1958, Keetch was one of 500 recruits with the Canadian army who were assigned to clean up the Chalk River nuclear plant melt down in Ontario. “I had four days of going in and out of the main reactor and we

were up to our knees in his terrible, terrible waste water,” he said. “The surgeon isn’t sure whether it was my smoking or whether it is finally that the cancer has celled from the waste water.” The accidental, but fortunate diagnosis has prompted Keetch to encourage others to seek medical attention if something seems unordinary or awry. “Cancer is cancer, anybody can get it.

Most people think that they’re immune to that kind of stuff, we’re not,” he said, adding his father died of prostate cancer at the age of 61. “I want the public that is not in the know to get to know, don’t wait till you’re in a casket.” Now in recovery with a good prognosis, Keetch has also vowed to donate $1,000 to cancer research on the anniversary of his lung surgery each year. This year, Keetch

donated $1,000 to Sooke’s Tour de Rock rider Const. Steven Martindale. “They could use the money, I can afford it and I thought I’m going to donate money for people who have to go through what I did and what I might have to go through until they cart me off,” he said, adding the annual donations are also a thank you to the thorough care he received from physicians in Vancouver. “If something happens, I can’t take it with me, so that’s why I’m going to some how thank them for what they were able to do.” He has also arranged to have all his personal and monetary assets donated to Camp Goodtimes -- a camp designated solely for children with cancer -- in his will. “The guy up there doesn’t charge, and the guy down there doesn’t take Visa, so it’s going to the children.”

Unique learning opportunities support health and stability With the support of the community, many local organizations are helping kids and adults learn healthy ways to deal with difficulties in their lives. Below are a few of the recent groups that received a grant from the Victoria Foundation to offer educational programs with a difference. Living and Learning Through Loss is a program designed to help young adults between the ages of 13 and 18 deal with the experiences of significant loss in their lives. Good Grief Workshops provided in schools include classes on psychology, communication, peer counselling and leadership. In 2011 they delivered 77 workshops to over 2,300 youth in the Greater Victoria area and plan on delivering up to 130 this year reaching another 3,900 youth. The organization also offers support groups, individual counselling and crisis response and support. “Our Learning Loss Group programs continue to change the lives of youth in a more positive and healthy direction,” says Charlie Troger, Board Chair. Coming up on October 24th, the organization is delivering a three and a half hour workshop for individuals who work with youth and who would like to gain more understanding and tools to support them through grief and loss. More information can be found by calling Grief Education Program Director Shauna Janz at 250-857-9642 or visiting their website, www.teenloss.com. Power to Be provides adventure-based programs designed for youth and families in need of support. They look to help individuals deal with substance use, social isolation, economic disparity, physical health problems, discrimination and other issues that can cause some youth to become

discouraged and derailed in school and unable to function effectively. Through a collaborative approach and caring staff, they inspire connections with nature through an inclusive year-round outdoor education curriculum that promotes physical heath and emotional well-being, develops interpersonal and leadership skills, teaches environmental and social stewardship, offers peer mentorship, and supports community engagement and family connectedness. Visit www.powertobe.ca or call 250-385-2363. Power of Hope is a non-profit organization that delivers arts-based experiential learning programs to teens from diverse cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds, including a distinctive 8-day overnight summer camp. Though they take many forms, all programs are designed for youth to explore their creativity, learn from diversity, and express themselves through music, art, poetry, or hip hop to connect with others in a positive, supportive community. More information: www.powerofhope.org or call 250-381-4673. Bridges for Women inspires women impacted by violence or abuse to reclaim their lives by gaining employment, economic security, health, safety and independence. A range of services are offered, including programs aimed at employment, entrepreneurship and career mentoring. To sign up for computer training or other classes, visit www.bridgesforwomen.ca or call 250-385-7410. The Victoria Foundation is proud of its long-standing support of our region’s charitable organizations from all sectors, and of the donors who help to create smart and caring communities in our region.

Since 1936, the Victoria Foundation’s permanent endowment has had the power to connect people who care with causes that matter. If you wish to make a difference in your community – one that has lasting impact, start here. Call Sandra Richardson, CEO for information at 250.381.5532. www.victoriafoundation.bc.ca

LOOKING BACK A trip through the Sooke News Mirror time machine: Sept. 30, 1987 Super salmon caught Colwood resident Earl McDormand’s big fish is going to move in with him. His wife Gloria said Tuesday that the 67 lb. 12 oz chinook that her husband caught Sunday is to be mounted and will hang on their living room wall, along with a record 27 lb. red snapper that he caught earlier this year. “A few years back Earl caught a 218 lb. halibut but that was just too big to stuff and mount,” she told the Mirror. Mr. McDormand and neighbour Glenn Friestadt were fishing off the Trap Shack just at daylight Sunday when the big one hit. “At first he thought he had a halibut, in fact as he was playing it he told Glenn that he was convinced that it was a halibut, you can imagine how surprised he was when the fish came to the surface and they discovered that it was a huge salmon,” his wife said. Sept. 29, 1993 Committee members reject harbour bylaw Eight of 14 members of Sooke’s Harbour Basin and Inlet planning committee have come out against the bylaw that their plan has inspired. The eight planning

The public boat launch in September 2011. committee members have signed a letter to Municipal Affairs Minister Darlene Marzari expressing “grave concern” over the wording of the bylaw -- a bylaw reigonal director Lorna Barry has said she will recommend for approval. Committee members Hilary Wilson, John Wilson, Jim McDougall, Ted Bowers, Tish Metcalfe, Debbie Eastland, Andy Planeta and Ken Shephard has signed the letter. The dissenting committee members are specifically concerned about a section of the bylaw that deals with open space. Committee member Hilary Wilson said while the plan allowed for waterfront park dedications by using existing public water access, the land for these parks could only be acquired under certain conditions. These stipulations have

been removed from the plan and placed in the Sooke Electoral Area Parks Plan, according to Wilson. Sept. 17, 1997 Rockets launch into SookeRiverRatsforwin The Sooke Moving and Storage River Rats snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory Sunday as they dropped their touch football game against the Rockets 26-6. The Sooke squad was first to put points upon the board capping a nice drive with a beautiful end zone toss to Mike Wilson but failed on their conversion attempt. The lead held until midway through the second when the Rockets got the equal-

izer and go-ahead conversion point. Sooke’s defence (which is arguably the toughest in the rec division) held their ground admirable throughout the half and the River Rats trailed by only a single point going into the fateful third quarter. The Rockets pressed the attack, scoring twice on some lucky plays but the match was considered winable until deep into the fourth then a breakdown in the coverage cost us another six.

Sooke district council’s plans of putting a couple of neighbourhood parks on the market survived a

Stig learned tree-falling from his father when he was big enough to hold up the other endof the cross-cut saw. It was his trade of choice throughout his wage-earning years. Dad’s experience in hand-fallinng and bucking, and later falling and bucking with the very ďŹ rst power saws, earned him a reputation as a top notch west coast faller and a good man to work with.

Stig loved his family, and the pets were family too. Dad loved all our pets but had a special soft spot in his heart for cats. It seemed that his chickens had a special spot in their hearts for him too.

With great sorrow we announce the passing of Toby Lee in a tragic tree-falling accident. Toby had a passion for the great outdoors and surďŹ ng. But these loves were surpassed by the love he had for his beautiful daughter, Cassidy, who will love and miss him with all her heart. Toby will be forever missed by his family: grandpa, Ray; father, Larry; his two moms, Janice and Marilyn; his brothers, Jason (Hillary, Emma and Walker) and Vincent (Robbie); sister, Stacey; his aunt and uncle, Sandy and Rick; cousins, Sheri and Brandy; and by Jen Petrie, who will always be the love of his life, and by Jen’s parents and sister, Don, Gail and Lesley Petrie. Toby touched so many people’s lives and the family honours all of Toby’s extended family and friends who love him as dearly as we do.

New head coach aims for school swim teams After holding school swim teams four years ago, Jen Bell hopes to bring them back for local kids Sharron Ho Sooke News Mirror

Jen Bell, former coach of the Sooke Cohos, now the Sooke Island Swimming club, has returned to take the position of head coach after a three year hiatus. Bell, who has been coaching swimming since 1989, has plans to start up swim teams in local schools and to hold a swim meet for the league. “It’s so important because we live around the water, we live next to the ocean and a lot of parents don’t put their kids in swim lessons or teach them how to swim,” Bell said of school swim teams. “It’s not even a right it’s a must that you need to learn how to swim.” Currently, Bell is in the early stages of getting school swim teams together. So far, SEAPARC has agreed to allocate the time and space for school swim teams, but is still deliberating whether or not to host a swim meet -which would be open to School District 62. A $6,500 grant from the District of Sooke will be used to pur-

chase starting blocks and equipment necessary for an interschool swim meet. “All that money will be used to set up a legacy... so we can run these swim meets every year,” Bell said. If the proposal for school swim teams pulls through, Bell hopes some kids will qualify for the elementary school championship in February. Sooke has only participated in the large swim event once or twice. “There is at Commonwealth, every February, district elementary school championships, so all the schools in Victoria compete in this and Sooke never does,” Bell said. “It’s not fair these kids get an opportunity to do this and the kids out here don’t.” Bell held school swim teams four years ago during her last stint as coach, and had 100 kids enrolled. According to Bell, the school swim teams will run over a 10-week period, starting in November. The kids will pay a fee, and each swim team will represent their respective school. In comparison to the

File photo

The Sooke Cohos are now known as the Sooke Island Swimming Club. Sooke Island Swimming club, the school teams will be focused on learning basic swim strokes like front crawl, back crawl and dolphin kick rather than competitive swimming manoeuvres.

Bell said kids must be able to at least glide in the water to be eligible for the school swim teams. In the more competitive sector, 32 swimmers with the Sooke

Island Swimming club hit the pool on Sept. 9. Bell hopes to gather 50 kids in total. As head coach, Bell does it all, from marketing to monitoring beginner swimmers

✪ SEAPARC STAR of the WEEK 108 7x4

to training kids for the provincial level. “I’m excited to be back and I’m hoping that I can get more people in the community to learn how to swim,” Bell said. To register for a free

two-week trial with the Sooke Island Swimming club, or to receive a free evaluation of strokes for the school swim teams, contact Bell at jen@ islandswimming.com

Exactly how much is an inch of water? And how do you measure it?

An inch of water a week – from rainfall & watering – is all the water your lawn needs to stay healthy. More than one inch of water, and you risk weak, shallow roots, and damage by fungus, weeds, diseases and pests. Sharron Ho photo

John Horgan, MLA for Juan de Fuca, took part in the Sooke Slow Food Cycle on Sunday, Sept. 23.

EMCS football season kicks off The EMCS Wolverines football program experienced some necessary growing pains with two lopsided losses to start their 2012 season. The senior varsity squad travelled to Surrey to battle the Frank Hurt Hornets on Saturday, Sept. 22. The Wolverines only brought 15 players, including some that had attended just the minimum eight practices required to be eligible. This showed on the field, where the team was getting their first live action in new offensive and defensive schemes. The Hornets, playing their third game of the season with a roster of 37 players, stormed to a 35-0 halftime lead. EMCS settled down in the second half, for a 42-0 final. Team captain Morgan D’Ganigian provided an offensive spark with 71 hard rushing yards on nine carries, while fullback Harley Ring added 42 yards on six carries. Landon Pollock, despite constant pressure, connected on 5 of 8 passes for 25 yards in his first game as quarterback . On defense, James Lazzar had a sack and Connor Gray led the team in tackles. The senior Wolverines next game is Oct. 5 in Courtney versus Mark Isfeld Secondary. The junior varsity

team hosted their rivals from Langford, the Belmont Bulldogs, on Sept. 19. The Bulldogs were too much for the young and inexperienced Wolverines. Of the 16 EMCS players, seven—including the only two Grade 10s dressed—played their first ever football game. They were Riley Boake, Aidan Ollenberger, Matt Hancock, Jamie Blakeborough, Gavin Cowper-Dawdy, Clay Vowles and Fernando Lara. Lara, an international student from Spain, led the team in tackles and did a great job punting. Blakeborough had some long runs, and Boake had a great block and a nice punt return. Grade 8 Andy Abell played quarterback for the second half, and ran over a Bulldog on a punt return for the hit of the game. The team played hard right to the final whistle, and the youth and enthusiasm of this group bodes well for the future of the program. They take the next step in their development Wed. Sept. 26 when they host Nanaimo District Secondary School in their final home game of the season. Kick-off is 3:30 p.m. at EMCS. By Nathan Lowther

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.

Initiative Advertising: Individuals or organizations who sponsor initiative advertising, other than the proponent and registered opponents, must register with the Chief Electoral Officer before they conduct or publish initiative advertising.
