They came, they saw, they biked, and this year’s Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock stop in the Comox Valley brought smiles to supporters big and small. The 14-day, 1,000-kilometre bike trip across Vancouver Island began Saturday in Port Alice, with the goal of raising money for pediatric cancer research and programs for children with a history of cancer. This year’s team rolled into the Comox Valley shortly before 11 a.m., stopping at École Puntledge

Park Elementary, where they were greeted by a student bike parade and cheering supporters. They continued with a short ride to Courtenay Elementary, where students greeted the riders with a rousing rendition of O Canada and cheers. Riders and their support team then stopped for lunch at White Spot, and continued their afternoon with school stops in Comox and Cumberland before ending their night at Crown Isle for a red surge fundraising dinner. “This has absolutely exceeded anything that I could have imagined, any-

thing we could have been prepared for,” said Kyle Slavin of Black Press, one of two media riders with the 2012 Tour. video-online “One of the www.comoxvalleyrecord.com things going through seven months of training, our trainers repeatedly say we’re training you so when it comes to Tour, you don’t have to worry about the biking, you can concentrate solely on the emotional side of it.” Slavin admitted while the biking has been tough, particularly on the North Island, he doesn’t remember a single minute of more

than 400 kilometres biked so far. “I remember that there’s been some hills, and I remember that there’s been some cold parts, but none of that matters. I remember stopping in communities and meeting kids and parents and getting cheered on like we’re celebrities and superheroes,” he explained. “It’s been so much more than I could have ever expected.” Slavin added despite all of the physical training, there is no way to properly prepare emotionally for the ride. “There is so much that ... see CUMBERLAND ■ A3

Delegates to the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Victoria passed a motion Wednesday to call upon government to decriminalize marijuana and research its regulation and taxation. The motion followed a Monday debate where former BC attorney general Geoff Plant urged mayors and councillors to push for a change in federal marijuana laws. Plant called the status quo “failed policy,” citing the consequences of an unregulated, untaxed multi-billion dollar industry created by the ‘war on drugs.’ Comox Valley Regional District board chair Edwin Grieve, who favoured the resolution, believes an annual underground economy of $7 billion is going to be rife with corruption with payoffs through all levels of society. “Bringing that economy into the open and under government control makes suppliers culpable under the law and brings with it all the processes and controls that are needed to protect society,” Grieve said. Courtenay Mayor Larry Jangula, a former police officer, did not vote in favour. “There’s a lot of anger about it and there’s a lot of debate going on,” Jangula said shortly after the vote, noting the lack of elected officials who could not com-

mit to attend for an entire week. “It’s not going to eliminate organized crime. We already have a major problem in some areas with these medical grow-ops. It’s just going to compound that problem, make it 10 times as bad.” If medicinal marijuana is used, Jangula questions why it isn’t controlled and grown by those licensed by the government. Along with being permitted to grow about 50 plants for themselves, he said licensees can also grow for another three or four people. “Tell me where a couple of hundred plants is what you need for your personal consumption?” Jangula said. “In addition to that there are no checks and no controls, so if nobody is checking up on you, why not grow a couple more hundred? Why not grow a thousand?” Jangula notes a suspicion that most medical grow-ops are used for trafficking. He also notes unpleasant smells and mould problems created by grow-ops. “What about our relationship with the U.S., our biggest trade partner?” he added. “Decriminalize is basically legalize. If it’s not criminal it’s legal. “The idea that all these marijuana users are now going to go to the government-run store and buy marijuana and pay taxes on it is an absolute, laughable joke.” ... see ‘AT THIS POINT’ ■ A2

‘At this point it’s just a resolution’ – Paul Ives Continued from A1

While he harbours concern about medical grow-ops, Comox Mayor Paul Ives believes in regulation through bylaws. He voted for the resolution. “It’s kind of beside the point in terms of the decriminalization debate,” Ives said of grow-ops. “That’s more to do with changes in societal standards, in my view, as well as trying to alleviate the load on the court system with many in what my view is trivial possession charges.

“At this point it’s just a resolution that will go forward through UBCM to both provincial and federal governments. I guess it’s reflective of where community leaders see things going.” Decriminalization, he added, does not necessarily legalize cannabis. “What it’s saying is it shouldn’t be a criminal offence,” said Ives, who is a lawyer. “As we go forward, and this is what we’re asking the Province and the feds to look at, is how

can we try to regulate this? “In much the same way as alcohol and other controlled substances have been regulated in the past, rather than wasting more money on a war on drugs of this nature, why not take a more proactive approach? Maybe at some point there will be some revenue sources for all levels of government to deal with that.” reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Little Gabriel poster child for Camp Goodtimes Leukemia keeps kindergartener going to hospitals for treatment Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Gabriel Callicum smiled and looked around the crowd of cheering students inside the gym at École Robb Road Wednesday afternoon, and took a step even closer to the row of Tour de Rock riders standing next to him. Gabriel is a five-year-old kindergarten student at the school, and is the reason why the 18 riders are biking the length of Vancouver Island during the next week-and-a- half. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was two-anda-half years old, the most common type of childhood cancer, explained his mom, Jeannine Lindsay. But it’s because of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock, that Gabriel got to be a normal kid and go to

camp, she noted. Lindsay and her son visited Camp Goodtimes for the first time this summer, a safe, fun, recreational program at no cost to families and participants for children and teens with cancer. The camp is located at Loon Lake in Maple Ridge, and fundraising from the Tour goes to support the camp and its operations. “When we were there, it was the first time since Gabe’s been sick that we both felt normal,” Lindsay explained. “It’s so nice to be with others who are going through the same situation.” In February 2010, Lindsay took her son to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox when she thought Gabriel was suffering from a fever. “Within half an hour, I knew something was wrong,” she said, and explained two hours later, doctors proceeded to fly them to Vancouver where the very next day Gabriel had his first surgery and was administered chemotherapy. “They knew right away he had leukemia,” she said.

They spent the next him, it’s life.” Lindsay and Callicum eight months in hospital in Vancouver, followed by mul- plan on returning to Camp tiple surgeries and rounds Goodtimes next year, and of chemotherapy, and final- said they have used this ly returned to their Comox experience to talk to stuhome where Callicum had dents, parents and to bring to spend four months in awareness to a special isolation, due to a compro- cause. mised immune system.

But these small communities who are writing big cheques ... it’s unbelievable what people do when they truly believe in a cause.” Since 1998, the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock has raised more than $16.5 million for the Canadian Cancer Society, which uses the money to fund pediatric cancer research and programs that help children with cancer and their families. Donations have been

An fire early Thursday morning that started near an outbuilding at a Headquarters Road property spread into nearby trees and ignited the roof of a residence. “When I was driving I saw what looked like a larger bonfire and when I stopped it looked a little too close to the house and trees to be a bonfire,” witness Mark Staples said. The Courtenay Fire Department was dispatched at 12:20 a.m. to the property which contains cabins in the 4600 block of Headquarters. The property borders Maple Pool Campsite to the south. “When we got there, the fire had grown to such a level that it lit some of the trees on fire, and we’re talking big trees, that were next to a pile of debris,” deputy fire chief Kurt MacDonald said. The fire also reached the roof of a cabin, but MacDonald said

the resident was not inside. As firefighters sprayed water, they noticed a pair of leaking 45-gallon drums of gasoline. “Which presented a whole bunch of issues for us,” MacDonald said. Crew members used a foam unit to control the gasoline. The fire department appreciates assistance from members of the

The Comox Valley Regional District needs to extend the stage three water restrictions until further notice — possibly to Oct. 3. The reason, says the CVRD, is to allow BC Hydro crews to finish maintenance work on the Puntledge River generating station. While the maintenance is underway, the CVRD has to supply water to consumers via standby pumping stations. To maintain enough water in the system for household and firefighting needs, residents are asked to use water only when completely necessary. BC Hydro crews have found three very small cracks within the pipeline valve into the generation station, and repairs are underway. The stage three water restrictions will be in place until the BC Hydro pipeline is returned to service. BC Hydro will update the CVRD when the unplanned repair work is completed.

College president stepping down effective May 31 Dr. Jan Lindsay will retire as president of North Island College, effective May 31. In announcing her decision Wednesday, Lindsay stated, “While this decision has been prompted by my desire to spend time with our rapidly growing cadre of grandchildren, two born in the past 16 months and a third due Oct. 20, I have mixed emotions because I very much enjoy working with our students and all the extremely talented individuals at North Island College and serving on the college board of governors. “At the same time, I feel that in the four academic years I will have been at the college I will have accomplished all of my goals regarding enrolment growth, program diversification, expanded community, industry and post-secondary education partnerships, internationalization and applied research development that I held when I first came to the college.” In her statement to

college staff, Lindsay said, “North Island College has changed quite dramatically over the past three years and we can be very proud of all that we have achieved together. I look forward to continuing to work with you over the next eight months to accomplish the many things included in our plans for 2012/13 academic year.” Lindsay oversaw a number of important initiatives during her tenure as president, including: • Increasing the number of partnerships with regional, national and international postsecondary institutions, thereby expanding the learning opportunities for North Island residents; • Achieving Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) eligibility, being successful in receiving a NSERC Innovation research

Fifth Street businesses reopen with new look New continuity links Hot Chocolates, Cakebread Renee Andor Record Staff

Chocolate and baked treat lovers can once again get their fix at Hot Chocolates and Cakebread Artisan Bakery in downtown Courtenay. The well-known joint businesses at 368 Fifth Street reopened this week after closing for renovations for three weeks. With new paint, refinished floors and a different layout, the interior looks quite different than it did weeks ago. Owner Jorden Marshall noted a main goal behind the “facelift” was to create a better connection between the chocolate shop and bakery. We “opened up the space so that Cakebread and Hot Chocolates worked more like one business under one roof,” said Marshall, adding he opened the bakery when Hot Chocolates moved up Fifth Street into this space in 2006, but he was limited in floor plan options to really connect the two. “So that was always in the back of our minds that we wanted to make the flow work between both sides.” Counters, cabinets and showcases were moved around, and in some cases counters were lowered, to make the space feel more accessible and airy, according to Marshall. He also noted the colour scheme now goes all around the shop to ensure continuity between the two sides. New coffee equipment was installed and a brand new gelato machine just arrived in Vancouver all the way from Italy, which Mar-

it’s finished. Staff have asked for customer feedback and Marshall noted most of it has been positive. He is even considering some major suggestions, such as moving some showcases out towards the front and installing the new gelato machine in the back instead of its chosen spot closer to the centre of the store. He said he appreciates the community support throughout the renovations so far, and noted the updates are important to the business — and what it’s able to offer to the Comox Valley. “We want to set something for the Comox Valley to enjoy that you would find if you were in any major centre in the world,” he said. For more information on Hot Chocolates visit www.hotchocolates.ca, and for more information on Cakebread Artisan Bakery visit www.cakebread. ca.

shall plans to go pick up sometime in the next couple of weeks. He added chocolatier Cedric Ariss — who has worked there for five years creating new truffle flavours among other things — has been busy coming up with some new gelato flavours to go with the new machine. However, Marshall noted the renovation work is not complete. “It’s a work in progress. We’re debating some things before we put the final touches to it,” explained Marshall. “When we’ve decided how everything’s going to be we are setting all the counters in concrete, and that’ll be done off-site and then polished to a terrazzo finish, and they’ll be brought in and they’ll be probably some sort of a dark brown with glass and stones aggregate in them, and it’s all cut and surfaced — it’s beautiful.” He expects work to be complete by Christmas and plans to hold a grand opening once

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Friday, September 28, 2012

Trustees give Hornby camp a raise Renee Andor Record Staff

The Tribune Bay Society will receive nearly $40,000 more from School District 71 this year after the Board of Education approved a special request. The non-profit society operates the Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre on Hornby Island — at which Comox Valley students camp each year. It requested SD71’s yearly contribution to its operation costs increase from $20,400 to $58,667. School District 69 (Qualicum) also contributes each year, and its Board of Education agreed to increase its funding from $10,200 to $29,333 this year. Both increases are for one year only.

According to a briefing note to the board, the society is under funding pressure due to withdrawn funding — which finance committee chair Rick Grinham noted was federal — and a decrease in student use because of the cancellation of extracurricular trips during teacher job action last year. Trustee Sheila McDonnell, the SD71 appointee to the Tribune Bay Society, noted the school district has considerable influence on the centre and receives booking priority. She noted the society will look at ways to increase educational opportunities at the centre over this year, and asked the board to consider how it would like to fund the society in the future.

Complete survey, maybe win a TV Record Staff For a second straight year, you can win an LCD TV in exchange for some basic information. Complete an online Comox Valley Record survey and you will be entered for a chance to win a Toshiba 55-inch LCD TV from Visual Sound AVU in downtown Courtenay. The 55G310U LCD TV combines the brilliantly detailed full high-definition 1080p display with Toshiba’s ClearFrame 120-hz technology for superb picture quality. To complete the survey online, go to www.surveymonkey.com/s/Comox. One survey reply per household will be allowed. You must be 19 or older to participate. The winner will be drawn randomly from everyone who completes the survey.

SHEILA McDONNELL

“If we continue to underfund the centre, and yet expect priority use of it, we probably need to consider whether we should just let go of it,” she said, adding the centre would likely have more international and private bookings if not for the district’s priority use. Trustee Janice

Caton noted the centre is important, and some students go camping there for the first time in their lives. She added the experience teaches them teambuilding skills, and gives them confidence among other things. Grinham said he embraced their comments and was in favour of the one-time increase, but pointed out the board needs to be careful where money is spent. “I want to remind you that we’re talking about educational dollars here,” he said, adding the board will have to reassess the situation next year. “It is educational dollars and it is for all the kids in our school district, and is it wise money spent? And there certainly can

be arguments on both sides of the fence.” SD71 secretary treasurer Russell Horswill noted the society is working on alternate funding sources and camping time slots are filling up this year. “The bookings are coming back this year, so last year there was very little usage of the centre, but we’re already seeing advance bookings for the spring and fall sessions,” said Horswill. “It is a nonprofit society so it does have a core cost that has to be funded, and as long as there’s activity, they can adjust their costs to match the activity but this is to help them deal with that core cost that didn’t have the funding for one year.”

Balanced school year considered Renee Andor Record Staff

Balanced calendar options for School District 71 are expected to be presented to the Board of Education at its October meeting. At Tuesday’s meeting, trustee Rick Grinham brought forward a recommendation that the board direct district staff to “provide an overview of the use of a balanced school calendar for SD71.� Grinham pointed out other school district’s are taking similar actions. “The legislation has changed and there is a number of school districts looking at various different calendar options. BCSTA (British Columbia School Trustees Association) is also doing some research, provincially and nationally on what calendars could look like,� he said. “I’m just curious to find out what it would look like.� Board chair Tom Weber wanted to be clear about the board’s direction on the matter. “Maybe this is my

personal anxiety sitting on the board for this many years, but I just want to be really clear,â€? he said. “This isn’t the board saying we’re going to do anything, this is about curiosity.â€? The recommendation was carried. Board of Education meetings are held at the school board office board room at 607 Cumberland Rd. in Courtenay. ••• School District 71’s director of finance noted enrolment numbers have declined as expected when he reported on the numbers to date. As of Sept. 18, SD71 had 7,466 kindergarten to Grade 12 students enrolled. This number is down from the 9,526 enrolled in the district as of Sept. 30 last year. However, Ron Amos noted an increase in kindergarten students — from 513 last year to 550 as of Sept. 18. He added kindergarten enrolment is expected to continue to increase in the coming years. ••• Implementation

to be discarded. “We are hoping the community will respond to our request to drop off their unused ostomy supplies so we can help ostomates in less-fortunate countries,” says Ken Osmond, co-chair of the Comox Valley group. “It is one of the ways we can recognize and support World Ostomy Day.” The Comox Valley Ostomy Support Group falls under the umbrella of the Central Vancouver Island Chapter of the United Ostomy Association of Canada. Anyone with an ostomy, or their spouse/caregiver, is welcome to attend the local meetings. The next meeting is Oct. 29 at 7 p.m. at the

The Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park Association (FHLPA) is hosting its second annual plant sale on the Filberg Park grounds this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Not only will you find plants for your garden but you can also glean information from our participating community groups. Master gardeners will assist with your plant selections and identify any clippings you bring from your own garden. LUSH Valley will be there for you to register and learn about their fruit tree project and much more, and Comox Valley Growers and Seed Savers can show you how to save your seeds and teach you about heritage

The Comox Valley Ostomy Support Group will celebrate World Ostomy Day this Saturday by inviting members of the community to donate unused ostomy supplies for ostomates in Third World countries. The local group will host an information table and a dropoff site for ostomy supplies from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Pharmasave on Guthrie Road in Comox. While lifesaving ostomy surgery is performed in Third World countries, many postsurgery ostomates cannot access the required supplies and appliances. These unfortunate people are forced to improvise, using homemade appliances such as plastic bags, rubber gloves or pieces of old tire inner tube.

Working with the non-profit group, Friends of Ostomates Worldwide, the Comox Valley Ostomy Support Group will collect unused supplies at the local level and forward them to the worldwide group for distribution in needy countries. For those unfamiliar with the word ostomy, it signifies a type of surgery required when a person has lost the normal function of their bowel or bladder. The surgery allows for normal bodily wastes to be expelled through a surgical opening (stoma) on the abdominal wall. Most persons with ostomies must wear special appliances over their stoma and often require unique supplies. Sometimes an ostomate must switch to a different type of appliance, making their previous appliance unneeded surplus and basically just taking up room. Sadly, some ostomates pass on leaving perfectly good supplies

This Saturday, residents will hold a 100th birthday party for the Old Orchard neighbourhood in Courtenay. It’s a bit of a guess on the age of the neighbourhood, but the Billy Booth house on First and the Bell house on Third were both built in 1912. Steve Schoenhoff has lived in the former Bell home for 22 years. During a renovation he found something hidden in the kitchen wall. “It’s one of those things, you open a wall to do a little wiring and find an old fold-out ironing board and behind that something else, a jar. Inside is a handful of old coins and a note wishing the future owner, me, good luck. I added a couple of loonies, another good luck message, and walled it in again.” The party runs from 2 to 4 p.m. at the corner of Third and Fitzgerald and will include a photo display of the neighbourhood and a mobile apple press. Anyone interested can bring apples for juicing. Pressing Matters provides containers and fills them with your apple juice for approximately $6 for a five-litre jug. Students from École Puntledge Elementary School will pick apples Friday and they will be pressed Saturday. Everyone is welcome. — Old Orchard residents

Can you help haunting, wonders local family? For the past nine years, the Webber family has tirelessly planned, produced and hosted a Charity Yard Haunt — an event that takes up their entire front yard during October. For those that don’t know what a Yard Haunt is, it’s like a haunted house — but outside. This year, they plan to make it bigger and better than ever, so they have started two weeks early. This event is a maze of spooky wonders – including a cemetery, witches hut, alien autopsy and werewolf cage. In the past they have had special attractions, such as a mad scientist’s lab, pirate’s cove and even a six-foot-tall paper-mâché T-Rex, although the Webber family says the T-Rex has unfortunately succumbed to the rain, and won’t be making an appearance this year. All of the pieces that go into this production are artfully crafted by the Webber family, or donated items from the community. “We are a creative family – and we have always loved Halloween,” says Cherie Webber. “Ever since our kids were little, we decorated our front porch – my husband (Mike Webber) loved doing it so much that it just sort of, took over the whole lawn. “Then someone suggested we think about involving a charity aspect – so I came up with the idea to collect non-perishable food items for the local food bank. Generally, kids can come and look around for free – but adults that come are supposed to bring something for the food bank.

“The kids get candy, and my mother usually makes her apple cider to help warm people up. It’s nice to see the big boxes of food at the end of it, it makes all the effort we put into this every year, most certainly worth it. “Mind you, we’d do it even if no one showed up — we just love it. It brings the whole family closer together. Although many of the creatures are created by Cherie and her kids, she is adamant that the brain of the operation is her husband, Mike. “He spends all year planning this – drawing little maps and plans. He goes around and finds sales on things he can use for Halloween decorations – and he is always enlisting the help of anyone that asks about it. “This is like his child, he loves it – but it frustrates him and worries him and it’s definitely a lot of work. He suffered a serious back injury this year that put him out of work for a while, and we were worried that it might affect his ability to set up the Yard Haunt – but September started and despite the pain he was in, he started planning.” This year, the Webbers would like to make the event even bigger and better – and attempt to beat their record of 2,000 visitors to the yard. Mike had this to say; “Last year, we only had 300 people come through. It was really disappointing. I’d like to see numbers like we used to have – maybe even beat my record. The year we had 2,000 people – we had lots of boxes of food for donation. So I am making it bigger and better this year!”

If you would like to volunteer, make a donation or would like more information, you can e-mail the Webber family at webberyardhaunt@gmail.com. If you can’t help out, the Webber family would still love to see you Halloween night; every single person helps them get closer to their goal. They are located at 1310 10th Street East, off Back Road, in Courtenay. — Webber family

THE WEBBER FAMILY is asking for help to make its 10th annual Charity Yard Haunt the best yet.

For 10 years, the 31-year old Vernon mother has struggled with an extremely rare, persistently untreatable and viciously debilitating condition known as New Daily Persistent Headache (NDPH). Throughout countless emergency room visits, surgeries, medications and even a coma, excruciating pain has been Hayley’s reality. “Multiple times a day I raise my fingers to my temples to make sure they’re not bleeding and there aren’t actual daggers sticking out both sides of my head,” she says in an emotional YouTube video that’s been viewed more than 1,500 times. “It still shocks me that any human body can still fight and tolerate this level of pain.” Her struggle to end her bed-ridden state has led her to the prestigious Mayo Clinic, where she’s already undergone two experimental surgeries with another one scheduled. Only the surgical portion of her treatments are covered by B.C.’s Medical Services Plan. Additional expenses, including travel and even medical equipment, must be borne by Hayley and her family. To ease the financial burden, they’ve turned to her community, already raising more than $40,000 to cover her mounting expenses.

In recognition of World Habitat Day 2012, Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North invites our community to address the need for decent housing around the world, including the Comox Valley and Campbell River. Help to alleviate substandard housing in our communities. Habitat is building six safe, decent and affordable homes and can use your help. By volunteering to work on the build site or at the ReStore, by fundraising, or by joining one of our many committees, you can effect real and permanent change for local, hard-working families in need. There are many opportunities to help for both skilled and unskilled people. Call, visit us at the ReStore or at our website to learn how you can make a difference. “Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North is a proud supporter of World Habitat Day,� said Tom Beshr, Director of Development. “Our hope is that this global initiative will help raise more awareness surrounding the affordable housing crisis here on the North Island and the devastating reality that many families are forced to choose

between decent shelter and other basic needs.� Habitat for Humanity’s theme for World Habitat Day 2012, Many Homes, One Community, highlights the vital role that decent, affordable housing plays in community stabilization and development. The focus is on the importance of homeownership in a neighbourhood’s progress. Beginning Oct. 1 and continuing throughout October and November, Habitat for Humanity and affiliated organizations will host hundreds of local events — from builds and flash mobs to parades, contests, housing forums and everything in between — to draw attention to the need for safe, decent, affordable shelter for all. Habitat for Humanity International will

also launch its annual Shelter Report, which will focus on the role of the home in a neighbourhood’s progression. The two-month observance of the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter and the pivotal role of housing in community development will culminate with Habitat’s flagship annual event, the Jimmy & Rosa-

lynn Carter Work Project. The 29th annual Carter Work Project returns to Haiti as part of its two-year effort to strengthen and support Habitat’s work there. The United Nations established World Habitat Day in 1985 to spotlight the need for adequate shelter worldwide. On the first Monday in October each year, Habitat

for Humanity affiliates and national organizations raise their collective voice, taking action to change the systems, policies and attitudes that lead to poverty housing, and engaging partners in solutions.

Bedtime doesn’t have to be an aggravating fiasco Bedtime is a nightmare at our house. It takes hours to get the kids to settle down. They call out for us, they get out of bed, they cry, they keep each other awake. By the time they finally fall asleep, we are exhausted, mad at them, mad at each other and too worked up ourselves to think about sleeping. Truth be told, we thought it was normal for kids to hate going to bed and that bedtime in all families was a similar fiasco. Then a couple weeks ago, we were at another home for the evening and the kids practically put themselves to bed. How did they do that? Is it really possible that it can go so smoothly? Yes! Bedtime can go smoothly! Teaching kids to have good sleep habits is of great benefit to them for their whole lives. Things will run more smoothly for you if you have a fairly consistent bedtime routine. The routine you set will depend on the ages of your children, their

CONSULT A COUNSELLOR

LESLIE WELLS individual needs, your needs, and the needs of the family, but most good routines have a few basic elements in common: They are consistent, there are three parts (getting ready for bed, settling down, sleeping), and always, the parents are well in control of their emotions and behaviours. Since you haven’t stated the ages of your children, I will outline a general routine that would be appropriate for a family with preschool aged or early school-aged children. As long as you have the basics, you can adjust and adapt to suit. Getting ready for bed: Determine how much time is needed to get ready for bed (snacking, teeth brushing, bathing, putting on pj’s, etc.) and start your routine that much

earlier than when you want them in bed. Settling down: This step is very important because in order to sleep, brains need to adopt a rhythm different from the wakeful part of the day. This can be accomplished by decreasing sensory stimulation and physically slowing down. Quieter activities help with this. Activating activities such as doing homework, talking about problems, tickling, arguing, planning the next day are not a good idea close to bedtime. Think about reducing sensory input for everyone in your home as bedtime approaches. Reading is a great way for kids to settle down and most kids love being read to and reading to themselves (even before they can actually read). Once kids are ready for bed, tuck them in for reading time. Keep the overhead room light off and use a muchdimmer bedside lamp, book light or headlamp for reading time. Set a time limit for reading and decide if

you will read to them and for how long and also how much time they will have for solo reading. If the kids have dawdled through get-

dence to suggest that TV watching before bed interferes with sleep. Sleep time: Lights out! You can set a firm time for this and return to the room

ting ready for bed, then their reading time will be shorter. Kids are often motivated to get ready for bed quickly to maximize their reading time. Other quiet activities can be substituted if you have a child who hates being read to. There is some evi-

to turn off the light or you can let the child manage this. Some kids manage this really well! Some useful tips to consider are: • Make sure the bedtimes you set are reasonable for the ages of the kids. No child will be able to fall asleep if

their bedtime is set too early. • Try putting younger kids to bed earlier than the older ones. Even if you separate the bedtimes by 15 minutes, the older ones will like having a later bedtime than their siblings and will be more motivated to make the new routines work and, ideally will be more compliant. If kids continue with their disruptive bedtime behaviours, stay calm, inform them that if they are unable to sleep, they may continue to read and that they are expected to stay in their rooms and that you are off duty and will not be responding to their calls.

THE GREAT

NO FLIP

MATTRESS

RIP-OFF How much money have you lost trying to get a good night’s sleep?

For over a quarter of a century... I’ve been searching for the perfect mattress system. I listened to sales reps telling me about their ‘latest and greatest/new and improved’ products and many times I purchased these products hoping each time that it would live up to the hype. Over the years I have spent over $150,000 on products that failed and warranties that didn’t back them up because of the ‘fine print.’ What is worse is that I have listened to innumerable clients who have spent thousands on conventional mattress systems that failed only to find it impossible to collect on terms of their warranty.

What is wrong with the mattress industry? Mattress used to have quilted ‘comfort layers’ on both the top and bottom which meant having to flip our mattresses regularly. Now, I have never met anyone who enjoyed

flipping their mattresses and it seemed like the industry listened in 2003 when the first “new an improved no-flip mattress was introduced. It sounded great but in the end it was all about cost cutting. Instead of quilting mattresses both top and bottom they saved by only quilting one side. The result of this is a mattress which wears out twice as fast.

Why the warranties do not work. You can get a 15-20 year warranty on these new mattresses, but look at the fine print! New warranties claim that up to 2 inches of visible height loss or body impressions are completely normal and not covered. It means that the top layer has lost all of its ability to cushion you. It is almost impossible to lose height on foam, which all good mattresses are topped with, but it doesn’t mean that it will be able to support you and remain comfortable - which isn’t something your warranty covers.

We have solutions! I sell mattresses that are made exclusive for my stores according to our strict specifications. We don’t cut corners. We don’t offer gimmicks. What we do is sell quality products that are covered by a warranty that protects you and your mattress! We use old-fashioned common sense coupled with great Canadian Made foams and have found a better way and a superior product. Our mattresses can be made differently side to side to accommodate different preferences, usually at no additional cost. We also make mattresses that can be flipped, easily, and if the components like the topping material wear out, they can be easily and inexpensively replaced.

It’s not expensive!

We sell good queen sized mattress starting at only $499.99 Come in and see why we are the mattress specialists and find out why we are “the home of a great night’s sleep.”

Offering a healthy hot lunch program as well as after-school and community programming, CCSS aims to increase the communitys’ use of public school facilities, to integrate community services and to promote lifelong learning. Operating out of Cumberland Elementary School, CCSS offers a Healthy Lunch Program to students Monday through Thursday. Food is sourced from local vendors and served using reusable, recycled BPA free plastic dishes and cutlery. This program ensures that all students have access to healthy food whenever they should need it and that they are given the tools to respect their classrooms, their class-

Democracy demands debate When is a democracy not a democracy? When the democratically elected representatives don’t sit, debate, and vote on issues before the government. Welcome to the Protectorate of British Columbia, where we are ruled by Liberal spin-doctors and their re-election machine. News last week that the Liberals have cancelled the fall sitting of the legislature is undoubtedly predicated by the rationale it’s harder to hold MLAs accountable when they’re not required to answer questions. Premier Christy Clark learned this particular trick from Gordon Campbell, who also thought that democratic conventions got in the way of ruling, and would often cancel sittings of the legislature. New Finance Minister Rich Coleman’s first order of business was to break the news that natural gas revenues in the province were down and, as a result, the province has undertaken austerity measures akin to the Bill Bennett days of the early 1980s. Isn’t that, and the measures the government is going to undertake to try and balance the books, worthy of discussion by our legislature? Apparently not. Instead, all the forces of government will focus on preparing a budget that the Liberals can present next spring, just prior to the election, telling us that all is well with the world because they are at the helm. Even though the province is now blustering about on the Northern Gateway Pipeline project, shouldn’t its position be debated in our legislature? Apparently not. While this province has robust employment numbers, child poverty is still more of an issue here than in the rest of the country. Shouldn’t that be discussed in the legislature? When those who are looking for your vote come knocking on your door next spring, just ask them one question: Are you and/or your party committed to having spring and fall sittings of the legislature every year? Those who cannot commit to that are not worthy of democracy’s highest honour … your vote. Prince George Free Press

Organic Week a good trend Dear editor, Farmers, growers, producers of all kinds of food, and retailers are responding to ‘growing concerns’ about GE (genetically engineered) foods by providing customers with more healthy, wholesome and non-genetically engineered (non GE) food choices for their kitchens. Last year, Steven Point, Lieutenant Governor of B.C., proclaimed Oct. 15 to 22, 2011 as Organic Foods Week for British Columbia. This year, we are having a National Organic Week Sept. 22 to 29. Why is this a good trend? In Canada, we have four major GE crops (corn, canola, soya and sugar beet), which have been manipulated to tolerate certain pesticides and herbicides. It is easy to avoid these four produces on their own except food manufacturers have mixed them into most of our processed foods like GE corn in soft drinks, sweeteners, cornstarch, etc., cattle and poultry fed on grain( GE corn, canola, and soya). By implanting unnatural genetic material into their DNA, the plants are ‘instructed’ to produce chemicals which allow them to be resistant to the sprays. The farmer can spray herbicide on his GE canola and it will kill all the weeds but the GE canola will look healthy and strong. One might think this tolerance is a good thing and has nothing to do with us, but in fact the unnatural chemicals produced by the manipulated DNA of these plants do end up in our digestive systems. Tests done on small animals have shown that continuous feeding of GE corn or GE soy can damage their immune systems, livers, testicles, kidneys and intestines. In the late ’90s, farmers and growers were told that this GE technology would save them time and money as they could

spray less often and have a better-looking crop. There were also promises of higher yield and less pesticide use but there was never any promise of adding nutritional, taste or value for the consumer. Consumer health was never in the equation. The long-term health consequence to humans is still a ques-

tion unanswered as no human safety test has ever been done. In 2001, the government’s own Royal Society of Canada, Expert Panel on the Future of Food Biotechnology, strongly recommended the Precautionary Principle: “First do no harm.” Yet up till now, of the 58 recommendations less than a handful have been addressed. The overworked CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) has had its budget, manpower and influence cut so that instead of having researchers to protect the health and safety of the public, it is relying on the research papers presented by the seed companies as the source of analysis.

For example,in the most recent peer reviewed paper (2012) by Prof. Gilles-Eric Seralini of the University of Caen, France, he showed that rats fed on GE corn developed tumours after 120 days, with tumours in the majority detected after 18 months. However, the research papers provided to CFIA all showed that rats feeding on GE corn showed no abnormal growth. Why the difference? Well the seed companies stopped their experiments at 90 days and drew positive conclusions for their products and presented these to CFIA. So who is protecting the consumer? We consumers can only rely on labels and trust the producers of our food. Currently our best option is to buy non GE foods, or certified organic products, so as to avoid the harm caused by unwanted chemicals in our body. It is indeed heartening to see organic food aisles in big box stores and a National Organic Food week! Now we know our voices are being heard and that consumers can make a difference in what is offered for our kitchen table.

Abortion laws need overhaul

DENMAN ISLAND VOLUNTEERS found more than two tons of shellfish industry debris during the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, says islander Edina Johnston.

Shellfish debris still found on Denman Dear editor, Once again Denman Islanders rallied to clean up their beaches last week during the annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup organized locally by the Denman Island Marine Stewardship Committee. Once again, most of the debris came from the shellfish industry. Of the two and a half tons reluctantly deposited in the landfill, only half a ton was not directly related to the shellfish industry in Baynes Sound.

Much of the two tons of industry equipment that was collected was reusable baskets, trays and many huge antipredator nets that are hazardous to wildlife, swimmers and boaters. The many Denman Island volunteers who walked the shores for the eighth year, collecting debris on the beach were disgusted by the large amount of debris that originated with the shellfish industry. Just before heading for the landfill, the

truckloads of debris were taken to the Courtenay office of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (which regulates the industry). It was hoped there might be an alternate solution offered to dumping the gear and perhaps a way to return the “lost” items to the rightful owners. F&O Canada’s enforcement officer was sympathetic but made it quite clear that the “found” items were to go to the dump, so the trucks and trailers went off to the landfill.

The shellfish industry labels itself as “green and sustainable.” One has to wonder how it can do so when it treats the very environment it relies on in such a manner. Perhaps if the hundreds of thousands of tax payers dollars given the industry in the form of government grants, etc. were curtailed, the tenure holders might value their equipment a little more, secure it better, and retrieve it when it when it

escapes their tenures. Edina Johnston, Denman Island

Dear editor, Since 1988, Canadian law has said little about unborn babies. The Criminal Code regards a child before birth — or even during birth — as not a human being. Ontario MP Stephen Woodworth, questioning this state of affairs, attempted to set up a committee to consider the current law and the possibility of changing it. His motion met with defeat on Wednesday. The MPs who opposed Mr. Woodworth seem to have two main reasons: The motion would reopen debate about abortion

and intrude into women’s rights. I cannot see that either argument is legitimate. Discussion about abortion has never been properly concluded in Canada, and a parliamentary committee might be a more orderly way to conduct the conversation. At least it would give Parliament an opportunity to clarify the ambiguity left by the Supreme Court’s decision to nullify the previous abortion law. Brendon Johnson, Courtenay Editor’s note: Brendon Johnson is currently studying in South Carolina.

What has happened at the SPCA? Dear editor, I was reading the letter headlined “Anger about Death Row dogs,” and my heart goes out to the dogs, and their owners. At the same time I wonder what has happened at the SPCA? Three years ago I

lived in Fanny Bay with my three dogs. My neighbour had a pit bull. On three different occasions, the pit bull, attacked my dog. The final vet cost for my dog exceeded $4,000. The SPCA attended

and told me that even though the pit bull had come into my yard, there was nothing they could do. They said the pit bull had fresh water, a nice yard to play in, and was well fed, they couldn’t do anything. When I contacted the RCMP, I was told to implement the three S’s — shoot the pit bull, shovel a hole for it, then shut up. I have since moved to Black Creek with my dogs, These dogs are prone to barking at bears, cougars,sheep, cows, tractors, hay bal-

ers and wolves. Now I wonder, since SPCA policies have apparently changed, since my dog got its leg crushed and I got my finger broken, and they are now putting country dogs down for barking, do I need to move again? D. Bell, Black Creek Editor’s note: After an initial investigation, the SPCA might refer a dangerous animal complaint to the regional district, which decides whether to advance it to a legal hearing.

PICTURE OF THE WEEK

Friday, September 28, 2012 • COMOX VALLEY RECORD

LIKE A PAINTING Early risers in Cumberland (and probably other parts of the Comox Valley, too) awoke last Friday to a fiery sky. This shot of a glorious dawn was captured at 6 a.m. E-mail your Picture of the Week submissions to editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com. PHOTO BY SABRINA CLOSE

Drivers can’t, don’t and don’t care For the sake of making my point, I’m going to divide traffic rule violators into three categories. There are those that don’t know the rules, those that make honest mistakes and those who are selfish and don’t think about the ramifications of their actions. I know that I try my best not to be in the first category and despite my best efforts am occasionally part of the second category. Hopefully, I am never in the last category. The holder of a valid B.C. driver’s licence should not be included in the first category.

BEHIND THE WHEEL

TIM

SCHEWE When we are licensed we are expected to know the rules and keep up with them even as they change. That is not always easy to do, but worth the effort because you cannot use, “I didn’t know!” as a defence in traffic court. We all make mistakes, even when we don’t want to. I accept that and try not to repeat them when I find that I am the cul-

prit. I am very fortunate that I have not had to ask for someone’s forgiveness, nor give it, through involvement in a significant traffic incident. Thank goodness! This leaves us with the last group, those that don’t want to be bothered to follow the rules unless it suits them to. Individuality, civil disobedience, I should be able to do this and other justifications have no place on our highways. They lead to collisions and they hurt people. If you drive like this, shame on you! Perhaps

if you hear this often enough from others you will consider not being a bad example. For more information on this topic, visit www. drivesmartbc.ca. Questions or comments are welcome by e-mail to comments@drivesmartbc.ca. Tim Schewe is a retired RCMP constable with many years of traffic law enforcement experience. His column appears Friday.

Low-income seniors can avert falls A big thanks to BC Housing for responding to my column on falls and the elderly by providing details on a new program for lowincome seniors to make home modifications for continued independence. The next column addresses risk factors of falls followed by falls-prevention strategies by Dale Graham, physiotherapist and FallsProof program facilitator. Would a new ramp, handrails or walk-in shower help you maintain your independence at home? BC Housing’s new Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program helps lowincome B.C. seniors and people with disabilities make home modifications that will allow them to continue living at home. Through HAFI, homeowners and landlords with eligible tenants can apply for financial assistance of up to $20,000 for improvements that make their home more accessible and safe. The goal of the program is to enable people who have physical limitations to live at home longer. People’s physical needs change over time — sometimes, a small improvement to a home can make the difference between being able to live independently or not. Types of eligible projects include: • Handrails in hallways or stairways,

JOHNSTONE • Ramps for ease of access, • Easy-to-reach work or storage areas in the kitchen, • Lever handles on doors, • Walk-in showers with grab bars, and • Bathtub grab-bars and seats. The projects must be permanent and fixed to the home, although exceptions can be made for equipment that gives access to an existing part of the home (e.g. a bath lift). The program will not cover supportive care, portable aids such as walkers, household appliances, emergency repairs to roofs and furnaces, or maintenance work. Launched in January 2012, HAFI is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia through the Canada-B.C. Affordable Housing Initiative. Through the HAFI program, $15 million

in grants or forgivable loans will be distributed to qualifying B.C. residents over the next three years. To qualify for assistance from HAFI, recipients must be a low-income senior or person with a disability, a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant, and a B.C. resident. Someone in the household must have a permanent disability or loss of ability that makes it difficult to perform day-to-day activities. As well, the total household income and assets must be below

COURTENAY, B.C.

Hitchcock meets Monty Python in CLT’s latest stage production The 39 Steps runs Oct. 4 to 7 and 10 to 13 at the Sid Williams Theatre Paula Wild Record Arts

“The 39 Steps is a brilliant and wacky take on an Alfred Hitchcock film that goes from romantic, suspense thriller to farce,” says Vivien Douglas. “When I saw the play in London a couple of years ago I laughed my head off the whole way through.” From Oct. 4 to 7 and 10 to 13,

Courtenay Little Theatre will present The 39 Steps at the Sid Williams Theatre with Douglas filling the role of director. All performances are at 7:30 p.m. except for a 2 p.m. matinee on Oct. 7 at 2 p.m. and the Gala Opening on Oct. 5 when the public is invited to join local dignitaries for the free opening reception at 7 p.m. followed by show time at 8 p.m. Until Oct. 31, theatre lov-

ers can purchase a discounted season pass to three Courtenay Little Theatre productions: The 39 Steps in October, The Magic Tinderbox (Christmas panto) and The Winslow Boy, a serious drama for CLT’s spring 2013 production, which will also be their entry in the North Island Zone Festival. Based on the 1935 Hitchcock film, The 39 Steps combines the suspense of a spy thriller with the comedic action of a Monty Python movie. “The movie has elaborate set pieces and a cast of 50; in the play everything is reduced down to four actors and a steamer trunk,” says Douglas. “Maria Aitken, the first director of the play, and the improvisation of her cast, made this play what it is. I’ve seen it twice now and keep asking myself ‘How on earth did they come up with something so funny?’ ” And, because the show has been so popular, five years and running in London’s West End and more than three years on Broadway — the release of performance rights to amateur groups was slow in coming. CLT is one of the first community theatre groups in North America to perform the awardwinning production. The plot involves a man with a boring life, a lovely woman with a thick accent, a murder, missing fingers, a plane crash and a nationwide manhunt. Four seasoned actors, Nika Berry, Steve Gordon, Millie Miller and Ross Stephanson, portray the many characters throughout in a masterpiece of timing and stagecraft. “Between them, Steve and Ross play 32 characters,” says Douglas. “We have a fantastic backstage crew and with all the characters, accents and changes of costumes we need every one of them. There are only four people on stage but there is a huge support team so it is a real team

UNWILLINGLY HANDCUFFED TOGETHER, Pamela (Millie Miller) and Richard (Nika Berry) at left encounter some tricky situations in Courtenay Little Theatre’s season opener, The 39 Steps. Ross Stephanson (left) and Steve Gordon lurk in the shadows as shady foreign agents. PHOTOS BY TERRY PENNEY effort.” The biggest challenge is timing. In addition to seeing the play live, Douglas has spent hours watching various YouTube clips of the production. “Like all comedy, The 39 Steps is quite tricky to perform,” she says. “You have to take it apart to see how best to work it. So for a period it becomes quite unfunny as you’re polishing the timing and positioning. A pause of only five seconds can deflate a punchline. “Sometimes you wonder why you ever thought the story was funny,” she adds. “But then a member of the crew will come in that hasn’t seen it for a while and burst out laughing and you know you’re on the right track. “Everyone has to work very hard to make it all seem effortless. Comedy is much harder to pull off than tragedy. ”

According to producer Val Macdonald, several Comox Valley residents who saw the play in Chemainus last year have already bought tickets for the Courtenay production because it was so funny. “The 39 Steps is billed as a show that appeals to everyone between nine and 90,” says Douglas. “Teens will especially enjoy the Monty Python feel of the production. There are also some other fun things the audience can watch for such as sly references to other Hitchcock movies.” For more information about tickets for The 39 Steps or CLT’s discounted season pass, visit www.sidwilliamstheatre.com or contact the box office by phone (250-338-2430) or in person.

the beaches, he has captured many of the reasons why the Valley and the West Coast have become known around the world as a great place to live, work and play. Smith, who is active on both the art and business scenes, says that sometimes the hardest part of being an artist working on the West Coast is to decide on what to paint. “Everywhere you turn there is a scene that beckons to be turned into a painting. The challenge is so great that I often have three or four on the go at any one time.” While Smith has a studio and gallery in Union Bay, he says that he likes to be able to showcase his work in different venues. He also says that with the lodge being a home, visitors get a better sense of what painting looks like when they are in a

The Avenging Angel of Klezmer will warm up the village Oct. 5 for the Cumberland Museum’s Foggy Mountain Fall Fair. This is Vancouver’s Geoff Berner, whose Mint Records debut, Victory Party, emerged in March 2011. Victory Party won the Canadian Folk Music Award for 2011, in the Pushing the Boundaries category. Pushing the Boundaries is a good description of Berner’s sometimes-dirty, oftenpolitical approach to traditional Jewish music Geoff’s openness to experimentation, spirited Eastern European klezmer influences, punk rock attitude and work with producer/ mastermind Josh Dolgin (aka Socalled) resulted in an innovative, engaging and aggressive album full of surprises. What’s really remarkable is that they are among the first true new klezmorim in 70 years. Since the 1970s, klezmer revivalists have always come to the music from other styles. Benjy and Michael learned to play their instruments by learning klezmer. That really hasn’t happened since before the Holocaust. They represent the flowering of a reborn radical Jewish culture, what Berner’s tourmate Daniel Kahn of Berlin band the Painted Bird calls the Klezmer Bund. Radical Jewish musicians in the Klezmer Bund movement are trying to put out a vision of Jewish culture that’s the opposite of the right-wing conservative, knee-jerk pro-Israel, judgmental BS that’s emerged in recent decades. That vision is evident at Berner’s live shows, which tend to devolve into crazed, chaotic, drunken dancing and psychotic laughter. He has built a sizable cult following through extensive touring, and audiences of odd, bookish people who like to drink come out to pack bars in Berlin, Amsterdam, Oslo and Zurich, as well as in Canada. “Geoff Berner might

Bentall brings his smoking show to Wave Barney’s son touring while working on next CD Second-generation roots rocker Dustin Bentall brings his band the Smokes to the Waverley Hotel. Opening Oct. 4 are Archie Pateman and Jack Roland. The Vancouver-born son of Canadian roots rocker Barney Bentall, Dustin was raised on the music of Neil Young, the Band, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Tom T. Hall, the Beatles and Steve Earle. On his third release, Orion, Dustin has found the heart of that music and placed it under his own landscapes. In the dog days of high summer in 2008, Dustin Bentall and his Outfit set off for the desert town of Ashcroft to record the follow up to Dustin’s 2007 debut, Street With No Lights. Ashcroft rests on the banks of the Thompson River and was a stopping point during the gold rush with a hopping saloon. The other desire Dustin had was to have Luke Doucet duelling guitars with Adam. It just so happened that Luke was travelling from Edmonton to Colorado the week The Dustin Bentall Outfit were recording and while Ashcroft may not be the geographical midway point between those two destinations, it was a certain provi-

along the way. Besides penning his own songs, Dustin has co-written with some of Nashville’s finest songwriters, Mother Mother’s Ryan Guldemond, Vancouver troubadour Cameron Latimer and Canadian country music up-and-comer Ridley Bent. One of his songs with Ridley, Nine Inch Nails, was 2008’s Country Song of the Year with the Independent Music Awards of North America. Stepping out with a new name and fiercely loyal band members, Dustin Bentall and the Smokes continue to hit the road and the air throughout 2012 while simultaneously working on a new full-

Folk singer Carter helping the hungry

ARTIST JUDI PEDDER will display some of her work at Whyte’s Framing and Gallery from Oct. 2 to 15.

Magic happens with watercolour Judi Pedder will present her work in Whyte’s Framing and Gallery, where many of her paintings receive their professional presentation. Beginning her training in the U.K., Judi has spent years working to learn ‘the Magic of watercolour’ to obtain the variety of approaches she uses to portray her chosen subjects. Recently invited to join the Botanical Artists of Canada, she got some of her work accepted into their annual juried show in November in Toronto. She’s often told, “You are known for your flowers,” which are mostly offered in strong, vibrant colours. In fact, clients choose almost as many of her landscapes — of England and Canada — east to west. Her work on masa paper is well-known through shows and workshops so she had a DVD produced with which to share her ideas farther afield. Students in her classes can choose to paint on masa paper or remain devoted to traditional methods. Another avenue Judi is exploring is painting with dye on silk and, of course, her “file in waiting” is, well, waiting! Pedder’s artwork will be displayed Oct. 2 to 15 at Whyte’s. A meet-and-greet happens Oct. 4 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Whyte’s Framing and Gallery is at 1225 Lazo Rd. in Comox. For details, phone Phil Whyte at 250-3393366. — Judi Pedder

Enjoy an evening of fabulous music and community spirit on Tuesday at the Mex Pub. Gordon Carter and friends will perform Oct. 2 as special guests of the 1st Tuesday Fundraiser series and will support the Comox Valley Food Bank Society through either cash or food donations at the door. The evening starts at 7:30 p.m. Carter is a celebrated local songwriter, who has recorded two albums, Rivers and Roads and Diary of Coal Town. His descriptive narrative songwriting style tells stories from the past and gives them meaning for the present. His heartfelt song Homeless was recorded by Todd Butler as one of the tracks on the HOME album, a local fundraising compilation that raises money for the Dawn to Dawn Society, another local charity. Carter’s songwriting visits local history, the plight of the working man, as well as songs for sweethearts, heroes and poets. His songs are about real life, and it’s not unusual to have him pull out a pad of

paper during a conversation to write down an idea for a song. Of course, great guitar-picking musicians attract other talented players and Gordon will invite some of his friends to accompany him for the evening. Proceeds for the evening will go to the Comox Valley Food Bank Society. The food bank has a new location on McPhee Avenue in Courtenay and continues to be a vital resource for many families in the Comox Valley. For some lowincome families the food bank helps to bridge some of the gap when they can’t make ends meet while others wouldn’t have anything to eat without it. The non-profit group is staffed by hard-work-

ing volunteers who have had their hands full trying to get things up and running with

as little disruption as possible for those who use the service. For more infor-

Bad luck, violence keeps piling up

G A L L E R Y

Art gallery film series resumes this Sunday at Rialto Theatre Headhunters stars the talented Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway’s most accomplished headhunter (corporate recruiter). Roger is living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary named Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, ‘Jaime Lannister’ from Game of Thrones), in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man. Tyldum directs the film as one long premonition of disaster. He has mastered the Coenesque trick of piling on bad luck and upping the ante of harrowing violence. Just when you’re sure things can’t get worse, they get 10 times worse. Whatever you’re afraid of — pit bulls, drowning, gunfire, cliffs, poison, suffocation, disloyal lovers — Roger suffers,in spades. Headhunters is based on Jo Nesbø’s best-selling 2008 thriller and from the producers of Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest).

Young students have art gallery show Beachcombers kids displaying artwork at CV Art Gallery “The Dolphin students were so excited when I told them they had a show at the Comox Valley Art Gallery this month,” said Jolaine Kelly, Beachcombers Community School’s art teacher. The school, which has mixed-age classes as part of a Montessori-inspired academic program, uses sea-life mascots for each class. “Our senior elementary students, the Dolphins, have been focused on creating works of art using printmaking techniques for the upcoming show entitled Once in a Blue Moon,” said Kelly. The show will be held in the Sawchuck Gallery at the Comox Valley Art Gallery from Sept. 29 to Nov. 3. The public is invited to the opening at CVAG this Friday from 7 to 9 p.m. The artists will be in attendance. “It is wonderful to see students enthusiastic and inspired about

Film fans invited Saturday In September 2011, Cumberland-based filmmaker Shawn Pigott decided to challenge himself: he would make one short film, every week, for an entire year. Now, the year is finished and Pigott has 52 completed films, with topics ranging from zombies to cooking shows, from heart-warming love stories to chilling horror tales. To celebrate and thank everyone who has helped make these projects a reality, he plans to host a 52 Weeks Wrap-Up Celebration. “A project like this is all about the journey, so unless we mark the end in a memorable way, it can feel unfinished,” says Pigott. “This project was so influential to my life, and I want to recognize people’s involvement, thank them for their contributions, and celebrate the end.” This Saturday, the public is invited to join the cast and crew of the 52 Weeks project at the Courtenay and District Museum, from 2 to 4 p.m. Watch a few films, meet actors and artists, ask questions

Knight has a BA in Studio Arts from the University of British Columbia and has been actively exhibiting for 25 years. “Her coastal inspired work pairs beautifully with our Coastal Studies program,” said Preston.

To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Glacier Kings score two big wins Kalan Anglos Special to the Record

After a forgetful start to the 2012-2013 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season, the Comox Valley Glacier Kings can finally put a number in the win column. In fact, that number is two, as the Yetis defeated both Campbell River and Victoria last week. Comox Valley head coach Bill Rotheisler sees improvements from the early season woes, and likes where his team is heading. “It was a big weekend,” said Rotheisler after Saturday’s home contest. “It’s nice to start learning to be on the winning side of these games.”

The first win came Fri- the lamp before the end of day night, when the Glacier the frame to make it 2-1 Kings travelled to Campbell Kings.

on display, as both Bagnall and Kings’ Matthew Mitchell seemed to smell overtime. However, with just 28 seconds to play, sophomore Michael Scobie (first star) buried the puck in the net, giving the Glacier Kings the hard-fought 3-2 victory. Mitchell had 33 saves for the Kings, while Bagnall made an astonishing 50 saves in the losing effort. “A lot of shots, and some big saves by both guys,” said Rotheisler. The following night, the Kings returned home to face last year’s VIJHL champions – the undefeated Victoria Cougars – who featured Comox Valley minor hockey alum Michael Herringer in goal and ex-Yeti forward See YETIS, B14

Returning for the fourth time to Cumberland is B.C.’s premier cyclocross series – Cross on the Rock. Race number two of the series goes this Sunday, Sept. 30 at Village Park in downtown Cumberland. “Another Dodgey Cross Race” is sure not to disappoint racers or spectators with a challenging course that will use the entire Village Park and Coal Hills BMX track. Race director Curtis Saunders is constructing his dizzying “whirly whirl” of doom for racers to tackle each lap as they battle for Cross on the Rock glory. New to cyclocross? What is cyclocross?

Her trophy shelf is full. But Aleasha Wiebe would have no trouble finding room for an Olympic medal. Or two. The 15-year-old Cumberland athlete has been riding bicycles since she was three and competing – extremely successfully – in BMX since she was five. That’s the reason she no longer brings trophies home. “I don’t collect trophies. I have too many of them,” she says with a smile. How many trophies? “More than I can handle,” she laughs. “There’s a lot. We donate them back to the track. We ran out of room.” Two of the trophies she doesn’t have include those for winning two different divisions at the 2012 provincial championships, held Aug. 25-26 in Vernon. Wiebe captured top spot in her age group in both the Class (20”) and Cruiser (24”) categories. She is ranked second in Canada in both divisions and will be out to make that No. 1 at the Canadian Grands, Oct. 5-7 in Chilliwack. (She finished second at last year’s nationals). Wiebe had to race in three Provincial Cup Qualifiers in both divisions to earn a trip to the B.C. championships. An ABA BMX spokesperson clarified the process: “In Class (20”), her top three scores in the four events she participated in were used to calculate her Provincial points going into the Provincial Cup Final. “At the Finals, she competed in a class of four riders (ages 15-17). In the first round, she missed qualifying to the main event, but then qualified in the second round. She finished second place in the main event. That, combined with her previous Provincial Cup Qualifiers, put her in position to earn the Provincial Plate #1.

Junior cyclist hauls in provincial, national medals Local junior cyclist Andrew Grant recently travelled to Dieppe, New Brunswick with the BC Provincial track team for the Canadian National Track Cycling Championships. Grant, 17, won a bronze medal in the U19 Matched Sprint and later teamed up with Vancouver’s Adam Reddy and Aidan Caves to win a silver medal in the Team Sprint. Grant has had a great season, winning the Provincial Sprint title with additional medals in Team Sprint and Keirin, and also placing well at other track races throughout the season. “Thank you to everyone who made this possible: Cycling BC, Mid Island Velo Association, Simon’s Cycles, PacificSport, and coaches Houshang Amiri and Amara Edwards,” a spokesperson for Grant said.

basketball. Anyone in the community interested in joining the Ice basketball program is asked to contact Colin Cunningham or Jeff Taylor at the school (250-334-2428). Isfeld will be offering basketball at all levels, curling, wrestling and skiing and snowboarding. Spring sports are also set to go with Senior and Junior girls soccer, golf, track and field, badminton and Junior and Senior boys rugby. Isfeld is looking for assistance and support for the track and field program. Two Provincial championships will headline the spring. The first in late May will be AA girls soccer led by longtime coach and teacher Jonathan Bos. Isfeld golf was all set

to host provincials last year when the governing executive decided it was best to cut short the season due to teacher job action. Thankfully, Crown Isle has been incredibly accomodating in moving the event to this coming spring. Everyone involved is excited about the prospect of, for the first time, hosting the banquet, accomodation, skills competition and tournament rounds all at the same facility. Last year Isfeld involved 19 girls and boys golfers in their program which included lessons and tournament play. It is expected as many players or more will join the program this year, vying for one of five spots on the provincial competitive squad. – Isfeld Athletics

Yetis net victories Continued from B11

Garrett Brandsma. In front of their home fans, the Glacier Kings put on a show, rallying to beat the Cougars 4-3 in a shootout. Brody Coulter had the only goal of the opening period for the Cougars. In the second, the Glacier Kings found their legs, scoring three unanswered goals to take a 3-1 lead. Brook Trainor scored the first one of the frame, before Rylan Ball (shorthanded) and Desmond Bast lit the lamp. Victoria fired back in the third as Dane Feeney scored on the power play. Up by one with time ticking, it looked as if the Glacier Kings would hold on. However, with just two seconds left to play, Ben Kinshella scored on

the power play, sending the game to overtime knotted at 3-3. OT solved nothing, and in the shootout the Kings’ fifth shooter – Wade Bartlett – finally gave the Icemen the well-deserved victory. Mitchell (third star) was solid in net once again, amassing 25 saves. “We’re thrilled,” said Rotheisler after the big weekend. “But at the same time we have a lot of work to do, and know we have to keep getting better.” Tomorrow night, the Glacier Kings head to Kerry Park to take on the winless Islanders (0-5-0-1).

Last call for rockfish and lingcod T

he season in Area 14 and adjacent waters for lingcod and rockfish closes to the recreational fishery on Sept. 30. If you are reading this on Friday the 28th you have two days left to target these excellent eating, fun to catch fish. Fishing for bottomfish is often associated with salmon fishing and they are considered secondary to the goal of catching a chinook, coho etc. Sometimes I think this is shortsighted because if you put the bottomfish on the list first and then go salmon fishing you usually have a successful day on the water as far as bringing home fresh fish is concerned. Pictured with this column are two prime lingcod taken about a month ago while fishing out of Pacific Village with Charley Vaughan. The large one weighed 18 pounds and the smaller one weighed 12 – nice fish. We were not targeting lingcod or rockfish, but we were using jigs in fishing schools of bait that we hoped would hold some feeding salmon. Just after we got started I got into a nice kelp greenling and a short time later the big one attached itself to the greenling and Charley put the net under it and then things got interesting. When it realized it had a problem it almost tore the net apart. Not everybody spends much time looking for bottomfish over relatively flat shoals in depths varying from 30 to 100 feet. Most bottom fishing is done over rocky shoals and outcrops at depths varying from 20 to 300 feet. I have a suggestion on how you may improve your success on flat shoals, because it is our experience that

fishing, lingcod were considered the supreme bottomfish by local recreational anglers. They are still high on the list of many anglers who use them for creating excellent fish and chips. Rockfish conservation areas are important tools in the management of bottomfish. We have eight of these areas in Area 14 waters and it is a good idea to be familiar with their location. Ralph Shaw is a master fly fisherman who was awarded the Order of Canada in 1984 for his conservation efforts. In 20 years of writing a column in the Comox Valley Record it has won several awards.

TWO PRIME LINGCOD taken in Area 14 waters.

OUTDOORS

RALPH SHAW they do hold good numbers of lingcod, particularly at this time of the year. During early fall and right into winter, lingcod migrate from deep waters into relatively shallow water to carry out their spawning cycles. It follows that the last two days of the season in our waters can give up surprises with prime lingcod in the 20-pound range. At

this time of the year it is possible to get into very large lingcod – like 30 to 50 pounds. I would respectfully suggest that if you hook one of these big fish it should be released back into the water because these large fish are egg-bearing females. Jigs work well when targeting lingcod or rockfish. Lingcod like big mouthfuls of anything when they are feeding and if you look at their teeth and big mouths it is easy to understand why. When fishing in waters in excess of 100 feet, large jigs in the four to five ounce range work well.

PHOTO BY RALPH SHAW

When you use large herring it is a good idea to use wire leaders because lingcod teeth can cut nylon leaders. When fishing with herring, wait for the second tug and steady pressure before you set the hook because with the first tug the bait is not inside the mouth. Firm, white fillets are the results of properly bled and chilled bottomfish. Prior to the popularity of halibut

Albert Edwin (Ted)

June 11, 1922 – Sept 22, 2012 Born in St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, Ted, considering this area to be the best place on earth, spent his 90 years in the Comox Valley. He worked in the Cumberland coal mine, did farming, logging, fishing, and was a volunteer fireman for a number of years. He became the first employee for the, then, village of Comox, where he worked until his retirement in 1987. On Feb 12, 1944, he married Margaret (Peggy) High, with whom he celebrated their 68th anniversary this year. He became one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1963, sharing the Bible’s hope with many in the area, and shared in the construction of Comox Valley’s first Kingdom Hall, as well as the present one, and other buildings projects on Van. Island. He had the privilege of serving as an elder until he became ill, but remained a respected and faithful member until his death. He enjoyed being outside, whether it be in the garden, out mushrooming, picking salal, cutting firewood, fishing, or working on a household project, and always had a smile for everyone. Ted was predeceased by his parents, William and Emily Farmere; siblings: John, Kay, Joyce, Bill, Elsa, and Gladys. Survived by his loving wife, Peggy; sons: Roy (Carol), Robert; daughter: Shirley Alexander (Lorne); grandchildren: Racquel (Chris), Lance, Brandon (Nicole), Joey, Raymon (Dannielle), Maria (Kelly), Kimmy and Krissy; great-grandchildren: Lexy, Tristan, Evan, Liam, Aidan, Caileigh, Ava, Everlee, Shea-lynn, Rainah, Daniel, and Hana; sisters Pat (Gerry), Rose (Reid), brother Norman, sister-in-law Norma, and many nieces and nephews.

Tombstone Members of the Crown Isle Ladies golf club bid farewell to the 2012 season with the game of Tombstone – you play until you have taken as many shots as the par of the course plus your handicap. Where the ball comes to rest after that shot is the location of your tombstone. The winners are the first, second and third players that take the longest to reach net par or have the lowest net scores for 18 holes Sept. 25 was a beautiful fall day for this fun format. Linda Foreman was first low net with 65, while second went to Linda Stickney for her 66 and third to Iris Peterson at 67. KPs were awarded to Diane Hardie (#7), Gillian Kirkpatrick (#16), Maggie Maclean (#12) and May Mitchell (#4). The Par 5 pot (25+ hcp)

PAR FOR THE COURSE went to Sandra Morton for her par on #5. This year’s Milestone Luncheon, honouring members celebrating significant birthdays in 2012, was held following the game. Significant birthdays are thought to be those ending in a 0 or 5 and we had 14 members fulfilling that definition. It was an excellent lunch and a good time to say so long until start-up in the spring. Thanks to all for a great season.

Fed X Sunnydale Sunday Men’s Club golfers were out to battle for their own Fed X Cup standings. Half the field was ruthlessly cut after the scores were tallied up. The remainder will go at it again Sunday to determine this year’s champion. Tyler Van Anrooy’s two-under 69 led the field followed by Jordon Rallison with a 73 and Jim Buchanan 77.
