hat was once known as the ‘Barney Building’ downtown got a facelift over the weekend courtesy of the Young Professionals of Nanaimo. Volunteers gave the building a fresh coat of paint with the objective of beautifying the neighbourhood. The building, located on prime real estate at Commercial Street and Terminal Avenue, has been vacant for four years – Canadian electronics retailer A&B Sound closed the location in July 2008 – and it is listed for lease. Braden Wheatcroft, YPN membership director and project co-ordinator, said the purple paint job was looking tired. “It’s a building that is really holding back the downtown from being revitalized,” he said. “It’s something we’ve been talking about for more than a year now. We just want to make sure it looks its best for passersby. “The downtown area is something our members are passionate about.” He said three weeks ago, the organization received permission from the building’s owner to do the project, at which time the group scrambled to secure donations of paint and other supplies from various local companies and recruit volunteers to help out. About 60 people, mainly Young Professionals members, showed up to paint the building on Friday and Saturday, finishing a day ahead of schedule. ◆ See ‘PAINT’ /5

Report targets transparency I

OMBUDSPERSON PUTS out report to guide B.C. councils. BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Runners take off from Beban Park as part of the annual Run for the Cure, which raises money for breast cancer research and awareness. The Nanaimo run was one of 59 across Canada, and raised $165,000.

Runners put up big numbers in fundraiser Quickfacts

BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Months of hard work resulted in a morning of celebration Sunday during the CIBC Run for the Cure. Close to 1,000 participants ran or walked the one- or fivekilometre routes through Beban Park in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. One of 59 runs across Canada, the Nanaimo event raised more than $165,000, adding to the $30-million total countrywide. “It was an amazing day. We had close to 200 people register the day of the run and we’ve never had that before,” said Ruth Christmas, Nanaimo

bring back the walls from the last nine years so people can see what they’re written in the past,” said Christmas. “That’s also a very emotional moment.” The run takes a tremendous amount of planning over the year and Christmas had high praise for the close to 70 volunteers who gave of their time to make the event a success. “It’s a volunteer-led event with commitments needed from March into November and there’s no way it could be done without their help,” she said.

British Columbia’s ombudsperson has issued a report addressing openness and transparency aimed at municipalities, regional districts and Islands Trust. Kim Carter released her report titled Open Meetings: Best Practices Guide for Local Governments last week. The report outlines responsibilities in the Community Charter for local government bodies, and provides a checklist for councils and boards to follow to ensure in camera meetings are held for the right reasons and proper procedures are followed. Though Carter notes in the report that many local government bodies are moving toward improved transparency, the guide will help elected officials comply with statutory requirements, improve consistency in practice and foster trust and confidence in the decisionmaking process. “One of the cornerstones of open and transparent government in British Columbia is the requirement for local government to conduct meetings that are open and accessible to the public,” said Carter. The office of the Ombudsperson receives inquiries and complaints about the practices and services of public agencies within its jurisdiction. The office has been investigating complaints about local governments since 1993. In its recently implemented corporate strategic plan, the city’s first, Nanaimo names transparency and responsibility as one of its strategic priorities. Part of that strategy, said Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan,

includes the hiring of Philip Cooper, the city’s first communications manager. Cooper is charged with the task of developing a communications policy and strategy and presenting it to city council. “We’ve always supported being open and transparent wherever we can be within the limitations of what we are discussing and we will continue to do that,” said Ruttan. “We can always do a better job of keeping everybody up to date, but of course that reflects back on (Cooper) and hopefully he’s going to be able to recommend a more timely release of information than we’ve been giving and we hope that is something the public will appreciate.” Ruttan noted, however, that some subjects, often referred to as the three L’s – land, legal and labour – require confidential discussion to protect personal privacy, legal requirements and property transactions. “That won’t change, it’s under the Community Charter,” he said. “It would be very difficult for any municipality to function if that did change.” In her concluding statements of the report, Carter states that the goal was to assist local governments in following appropriate protocol in the specific and limited circumstances when council believes it is necessary to close a meeting. “Local governments across Canada are moving towards more open and transparent decision-making,” wrote C a r t e r. “ O p e n m e e t i n g s advance the democratic process by providing the public with an understanding of the considerations underlying local government actions and by allowing members of the public to observe the performance of their elected officials.” To read the report in its entirety, visit www.bcombudsperson.ca. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Paint job Tourism moves ahead unlikely with residents’ ideas to spur interest I HUNDREDS OF opportunities to pursue in Nanaimo.

◆ From /1 Karly Parker of Kallos Interior Design said the colours – a grey with dark brown awning – were picked to complement the nearby buildings. Brad Bailey, an agent for Colliers International, which has the listing, said the new paint job looks good, but he’s not sure how much it would improve prospects for finding a new tenant because major upgrades are needed to the interior of the building. “It would have to be a substantial tenant,” he said. “I think that the whole idea is that the building has to eventually give way to a new one.” In July, Steiner Properties Ltd. asset manager Chelsea Harding told the News Bulletin the company’s Nanaimo property is on the back burner while it deals with other properties and it is becoming more apparent the building will likely have to be demolished. Wheatcroft said even if the owners decide to tear the building down, the paint job makes it look good in the meantime. Corry Hostetter, general manager of the Downtown Nanaimo BIA, said the YPN project will hopefully encourage other properties in the area to do restoration work. “We really appreciate the enthusiasm and the energy that the YPN are showing in our community,” she said.

Nanaimo residents have identified hundreds of tourism opportunities, now it’s up to the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation to determine which ones should be pursued. The feedback will be considered by NEDC’s Tourism Leadership Committee, in partnership with Chemistry Consulting Group, during a three-year strategic plan to enhance the region’s tourism product. During a recent survey, 110 residents and tourism stakeholders offered ideas like developing new products and attractions, creating more festivals and events, building new tourism infrastructure, and implementing new or different marketing and public relations programs. Nanaimo’s tourism strengths, according to survey responses, include marine resources, heritage, environmental splendour, central location, our many parks and trails, outdoor activities and

cultural assets. Dan Brady, chairman of the Tourism Leadership Committee, said the volume of responses suggests residents are engaged in the process. “The research clearly shows our residents share the tourism industry’s passion for our region,” said Brady. The survey also revealed a variety of potential challenges facing Nanaimo on the tourism front, including the area’s past reputation and lack of attractions. Transportation costs were also identified as a negative. Information was also gathered through interviews, phone calls, e-mails and media responses. As part of the next step in the process, NEDC and the leadership committee will consider all of the input received and draft a list of priority tourism initiatives that can be implemented or initiated within the next two or three years. The community will have an opportunity to review and comment on the selections at three open houses scheduled for Nov. 14-15 in north Nanaimo, south Nanaimo and Gabriola Island. A final report will be released towards the end of the year.

Last chance for input on school plan PUBLIC MEETING offers parents an opportunity to comment on school district’s strategic vision.

I

BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo school officials are hosting one last round of public

consultation meetings before staff sit down and begin writing the district’s strategic plan. The meetings take

place Oct. 9 and 11 starting at 6:30 p.m. at various school sites. On Tuesday (Oct. 9), meetings take place at Wellington, John Barsby, Dover Bay and Ladysmith secondary schools. The Thursday (Oct. 11) meetings are at Nanaimo District,

Cedar and Woodlands secondary schools and Departure Bay Elementary School. Last spring, trustees and staff held meetings at every school to discuss what people in each school community thought was working and what areas the district should focus on to improve student learning. The district also hosted several public meetings not connected with a particular school. The input gathered at these meetings and through the district’s online survey – almost 6,000 suggestions – has now been grouped into themes and staff want to get the public’s input on these themes, said Donna Reimer, district spokeswoman. “It’s the final stage before the plan is drafted and written,” she said. “It was incredible how much input there was. Over-

all, we had 1,000 people respond in one way or another.” Themes centre a r o u n d : h ow t h e district meets each student’s individual needs; instructional practices; technology; student health; parent involvement; community partnerships; facilities; financial resources and human resources. Reimer said it is too early to say what will be included in the draft strategic plan, but any recommendations for major changes would require community consultation. Employees, parents, students and other members of the public are welcome to come to the meetings next week. More information about the strategic planning public consultation process is available at www.sd68. bc.ca. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo awarded as business-friendly The B.C. Small Roundtable has selected Nanaimo as one of six small business friendly communities in the province. The award recognizes local policies, projects and programs that support small business as judged by a panel of small business leaders from across the province that represent regions, industries and associations. Highlighted in the city’s submissions were efforts to build a strong business environment through streamlining city processes and investments in economic development. The city’s support of the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation, Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association and incorporation of the Nanaimo and District Chamber of Commerce’s Successful Cities initiative in the new strategic plan were among other efforts that helped result in the award. “The City of Nanaimo is committed to making it easier for small businesses to operate,” said Mayor John Ruttan. “[The award] is reassuring evidence we are on the right track as a community in terms of creating bylaws and processes that allow small business owners to get things done.” Sasha Angus, CEO of the NEDC, said small business is an important economic driver in Nanaimo. “Fostering the ongoing success of local businesses means more household-sustaining jobs for our residents and an even stronger quality of life on our community,” he said.

Province names new lieutenant-governor Rancher Judith Guichon has been named B.C. lieutenant-governor, as Sto:lo Grand Chief Steven Point’s five-year term comes to an end. Guichon runs a family cattle ranch in the Nicola Valley. She has served as president of the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association, a director of the Grassland Conservation Council of B.C., and on provincial government task forces on ranching and species at risk. “Mrs. Guichon has dedicated herself to her community, province and country,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said in a statement Monday. “She is a leader in keeping British Columbia’s agriculture and cattle industries environmentally sound and she has worked hard to promote and protect the ranchers of British Columbia.” Lieutenant governors serve five-year terms.

South-end character home transformed into affordable housing for working youth Youth in Nanaimo will soon have a safe and affordable place to live. Nanaimo Youth Services Association is renovating a home on Haliburton Street to offer working youth, ages 17 to 30 years old, a place to live. The home, which was built in the early 1900s, was historically used as a rooming house. Over the years it became run down and got the reputation in the neighbourhood of being a crack house. Steve Arnett, chief executive officer for the association, said neighbours are waiting to see how the changes the youth association makes to the home add to the neighbourhood. “The community is cautiously optimistic about what we are doing here,” said Arnett. He said the association has always envisioned owning a piece of property to create affordable youth housing and has been pursuing that vision for the last three years. Some opportunities came up during that time but never came to completion. “I’m almost in disbelief,” said Arnett about purchasing and renovating the property, as he stood outside the home Saturday, grinning.

provide about 12 to 14 apartments for employed youth. Arnett said the association doesn’t know yet the exact number of rooms because it has to determine the layout of the home first. Arnett said plans for the home include ripping out the insulation to install a sprinkler system, which will make the building above fire code requirements. Arnett said many Nanaimo businesses volunteered their time and equipment to help during the renovation. The project received $302,000 from the provincial government and a $75,000 grant from the City of Nanaimo, which came from the Housing Legacy Fund. The association already operates a residence for youth ages 17-19 years old on Waddington Road. The residence has 13 studio units, six two-bedroom units and one wheelchair accessible unit. The tenants are provided support to help complete high school, become employed or increase their skills to help reach independence. The youth association operated the building through a contract with B.C. Housing and the Ministry of Children and Family Development. For more information please go to www.nysa.bc.ca.

Union advises acceptance of agreement The B.C. government has reached a tentative agreement with its largest employee group as the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union recommended acceptance of a two-year agreement with a fourper cent raise. Premier Christy Clark announced the settlement Friday at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, after talks broke down in the spring and the BCGEU staged a series of strikes at liquor stores and government offices around the province. BCGEU president Darryl Walker said the government dropped its proposal to sell the Liquor Distribution Branch warehouse and delivery system, which was “huge” for the union and a step toward privatizing government liquor stores as well. “We think this is the spine of the system,” Walker said. “Without this we would perhaps have lost the whole system.” Clark said the settlement meets the government’s “cooperative gains” bargaining mandate, where savings and efficiencies cover the costs of pay increases, but offered few details. Walker said the 26,000-member union agreed to work with the government to reduce sick days and find new efficiencies in operations that include ministry operations, social workers, and provincial prison and court services. The union dropped its proposal to open more liquor stores on Sundays to increase revenue. Walker said that was to protect members whose distribution jobs were going to be privatized. “Now that [privatization] is gone, we think we can talk to this government and in fact the next government about what it means to build revenues, and if we can find a way to do that by opening stores, then I think it’s win-win,” Walker said. Clark also announced a tentative agreement with resident physicians in B.C. hospitals, also a two-year deal under cooperative gains. On Wednesday the government and the B.C. Nurses’ Union announced a tentative agreement for 32,000 Registered Nurses and Registered Psychiatric Nurses. Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the agreement includes a “modest” wage increase, with details to be released after members vote on it.

EDITORIAL

New downtown requires q pride p A show of pride in the downtown core by the Young Professionals of Nanaimo could be the catalyst to start a wave of restoration to buildings in need of some tender, loving care. The former A&B Sound building at the corner of Commercial Street and Terminal Avenue has been both a topic of conversation and butt of jokes since closing its doors four years ago. It became known as the ‘Barney Building’ due to its bright purple exterior, attracting attention to the downtown for all the wrong reasons while the city, businesses and property owners strive to head down the road to revitalization. Seeing the building’s state as a detraction to downtown rejuvenation, the YPN took it upon itself to breathe some life into the property even though its future remains up in the air. With permission from the property owner and donations of paint and other supplies from Nanaimo businesses, the ‘purple dinosaur’ received a coat of grey with dark brown awnings to fit in with the heritage feel of neighbouring buildings. It’s a project that serves a tip of the hat to YPN for a job well done, and one that hopefully catches the attention of other property owners. Downtown Nanaimo has been fighting since the explosion of shopping malls in the 1980s to establish an identity. With the Port Theatre and other venues, cruise ship terminal, art centre, condominiums, shopping and restaurants, the core pieces are in place to attract people to live and visit – and the dollars they will spend. What the downtown has that shopping centres don’t, is character. But it needs every stakeholder to invest in the idea of revitalization. It doesn’t need buildings that are eyesores. It doesn’t need half-finished projects sitting idle. It needs pride and commitments. It needs more efforts like those of YPN.

Around midnight or 1 a.m., someone usually decided it was time for a snack and I was often the one voted to run up to the house and tiptoe into the kitchen to get it. Hours spent reading and dozing on a long, flat rock overlooking the lake. The cabin brought the family together in a way no other place did, given that we all stayed there together, shared meals and did things as a group each day. Much different than the hurried family dinners back home where some family members would have to leave early to get home at a decent hour. I’m going to miss the house, the Shuswap sunsets, the days spent lounging on our dock on the beach. I’m also sad that the next generation won’t get to enjoy the place and forge more memories there. But in recent years, the place was used infrequently by many family members and so was not bringing us together the way it used to. This is an opportunity to create new family traditions, ones that don’t rely on my grandparents financing the yearly upkeep of a residence and ones more of us will actively participate in. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Hands-on knowledge provides insight to poor To the Editor, Re: Let’s see poor’s qualif fications , Letters, Sept. 25. Matt James raises a series of important questions about how we at Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank meet the needs of the most vulnerable in our community. The fact that there are those who may not need the services, but utilize it none the less, means that there is less food for those who truly need it. Loaves and Fishes shares this concern and is currently considering

options for establishing a means test for clients. To this end, on Sept. 19 the Loaves and Fishes Means Test Committee met. As well, on Sept. 24-25 I attended the Food Banks B.C. board meeting in Kelowna and spoke to seven different food banks to get input and practices on this issue. James identifies fancy automobiles and cigarettes as red flags that call into question an individual’s need for food bank services. With regard to fancy automobiles, there are

many people who drive their poor neighbours and friends to the food bank as an act of charity and generosity. Community social workers often bring people to the food bank. Could some of these fancy automobiles be from Good Samaritans and social workers? Second, since May, 4,730 different people have used Loaves and Fishes services. In August, 3,012 different people used our services. That means that 1,718 people (a full 36 per cent) used Loaves and Fishes in May, June or July but

did not use the service in August. More often than not, the short-term need for food bank services is brought on by a cash flow crunch (excessive debt brought on by a car loan?) not a completely depleted personal net worth. Could some of these fancy cars be from the people who use our service on a short-term basis brought on by a cash flow crunch? Many food bank clients struggle with addiction issues of which cigarettes are one. How we help people out of addiction

and conversely how we enable someone in their addiction is clearly a discussion we need to have as a society. Should people who have an addiction be denied access to the food bank? Perhaps, but it raises challenging questions. How do we determine if someone has an addiction? What addictions are on the ‘do not serve list’? Are we going to deny service to children whose parents have an addiction? I would invite James and anyone who has had

their perception of the hungry tainted to volunteer at Loaves and Fishes and meet the clients first hand. This gives a better insight into the lives of food bank clients than being employed at a business next door to the food bank. Our next volunteer orientation is 3:30 p.m. Wednesday (Oct. 3) at 1009 Farquhar St. Please come out. Peter Sinclair i executive director Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank

Readers respond: Feedback on news items Card checks provide fair way to unionize To the Editor, Re: Secret ballots must remain, Letters, Sept. 15. Mathew Enns, a former intern for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, recently condemned the call to make it safer for workers to join a union. I wonder, was he speaking for workers or for the employers who wish to maintain their ability to threaten and intimidate employees who want to join a union? Many workers, especially young and immigrant workers, are afraid to join a union because they fear they will be fired or demoted for trying. Card check allows workers to make their decision free from interference and threats from their employer, and prevents leaders of organizing drives from being fired unfairly.

The card check system Enns criticizes was recently adopted by the Conservative government of Newfoundland and Labrador. It has long been recognized as a fair, balanced and democratic way for workers to unionize. I am responsible for helping to organize young workers who want to join a union. I want them to have rights and fair working conditions in their workplaces. Can Enns say the same thing? Jason Mann Vancouver

Media has agenda on Obama re-election To the Editor, Re: Editorial cartoon, Opinion Sept. 22. Your editorial cartoon shows American presidential candidate Mitt Romney with a Band-Aid over his mouth, apparently alluding to his “gaffe” regarding 47

per cent of the electorate being on some form of government dependency. Romney’s statement was factually correct and needed to be said, even in a politically correct world. On the other hand, during an appearance on the David Letterman program of Sept. 19, President Barack Obama was asked by the host if the national debt stood “around $10 trillion” and whether that was a problem. He responded, “I don’t know what the number is, precisely.” Being directly responsible for at least $5 trillion, he most certainly knows $10 trillion was an absurdly low and softball guess by Letterman. If the President of the United States does not know that the national debt is greater than $16 trillion we can reach only two conclusions. First, he was being dishonest

to millions of viewers of the program, and second, the national press, both American and Canadian, are willing to blithely ignore what was not a ‘gaffe’ but a deliberate un-truth, It appears both the Canadian and American media are stumping for the re-election of President Obama. Little wonder mainstream media retains so little credibility in an increasingly informed world. Randy O’Donnell Nanaimo

Community can solve city’s litter problems To the Editor, Re: Litterbugs have no respect for community, Letters, Sept. 27. Well, Dean Ben, welcome to Nanaimo. It is with heavy heart that I have to tell you this, but the city claims it does not have any

money for extra garbage cans and extra man hours to be situated around the city. I spoke to Gary Franssen at the Nanaimo city works, and he informed me there was not enough money to get associated with this project. The students at John Barsby Community School go to 7-Eleven at lunch and informed me it was too far to go to the next garbage can to dispose of their containers along Bruce Avenue, so I donated one. The students use the can and that stretch is quite clean now. One thanked me for the can. It is up to us and businesses to get involved in this clean up. Presently, 7-Eleven is donating the bags for the can. Hopefully Ben’s letter will help get things rolling around Nanaimo with business and citizen participation. Dave Noble Nanaimo

Protection Islanders looking for a good read now have their own library to enjoy. The library, a project of the Protection Island Lions Club, opened its doors Sept. 23 in the basement of the community centre, formerly the lighthouse keeper’s cottage. Island residents donated financially as well as with more than 1,500 volunteer hours to help with renovations. The library has 2,000 books electronically catalogued, ready for loan, with more on the way.

To Borneo, with love The world is not such a big place nowadays and a Nanaimo man has been taking advantage of the fact, spending the last decade travelling and working in different parts of the globe. Jan Kerekes has seen a lot, often in unconventional ways, and has learned a lot as well. “I have also kept my faith in goodness in people. Always,” he said. “Even in the parts of the world that are considered dangerous or wild, I always believe in people.” Three years ago, Kerekes spent three weeks living with the Iban tribe in the heart of the Kalimantan jungle on the island of Borneo. Kerekes learned a great deal from these people with old mystic traditions, and hard ways of life. “I could also see the little breeze of change that one person could make in their lives, change for something new, change to improve their lives,” he said. Treated not only as a guest, but as a friend, Kerekes promised to come back. And with that promise, an idea was born. “It is because of the remoteness as well as their limited resources that many basic things do not find the way into their little village,” he said. “So I decided to deliver them

myself. As simple as that, as much as I could carry – and I can carry a lot.” Kerekes is hosting a collection day Oct. 21 in the parking lot of St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, 301 Machleary St., from 12:30-4:30 p.m. for small household items, school supplies, cutlery, basic fishing gear, clothing, toys and more. “I believe that things, items from everyday life, should be put into use, given a second chance, instead of just lying around a house or being thrown to garbage,” he said. “I would like to collect all kinds of usable items, pack them into two big hockey bags and bring them across half a world so they can find new, happy owners.” Deciding to see if the goodness in people can stretch across the oceans and continents, Kerekes hopes people will donate gifts they would want themselves. “This is not a charity run or typical second-hand items collection,” he said. “This is just a chance to see that set of kitchen ladles that you never use in the hands of smiling lady in the floating house in Borneo. To see alphabet books that helped your own children, helping in a simple school built on stilts by the river side.”

Bus wheels roll out comedy performance BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

The wheels on the bus will turn out comedy this October at the Port Theatre. The Number 14, a show about the antics and daily interaction of passengers on a bus route, rolls into Nanaimo’s Port The-

atre on Saturday (Oct. 6) for a 7:30 p.m. show. The laughs continue Sunday (Oct 7) during a matinee at 2:30 p.m. The Nanaimo performance is part of the theatre company’s national tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of entertaining people around the world. Sarah Rodgers, an

actress who has been involved in the production since it launched in 1992, said the comedy transcends language barriers because people understand the humour even if they don’t understand the words. “It’s like bust your guts funny. You go to the show and know you

YOUR WEEKLY HOROSCOPE:

UP TO OCT. 8, 2012

Aries

Taurus

Gemini

Cancer

Leo

Virgo

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Someone is not telling you the entire story, Aries. However, you will find a way to fill in the missing details. What you learn will come as a big surprise. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, reach out to friends and family members for some support. A helping hand always can lift the spirits, and those closest to you will be happy to help. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you are strong and determined, so the obstacles that arise this week will be no match for you. Just keep up the positive thinking and you will prevail. CANCER R - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, this week is not the time to harbor secrets. It’s a good policy to always be open and honest with the people with whom you interact on a regular basis. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, allow a friend to be the center of attention so he or she can enjoy his or her moments in the sun at an upcoming social event. Your magnetism can be addicting. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, all that time and effort you put into past projects is certainly paying off now. It probably feels good to be back in the game and going along successfully.

NANAIMO

LIBRA A - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, you are ready to take a leap of faith, but make sure your parachute is on before you do so. Sometimes you tend to err on the side of risky.

Libra

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, sometimes you take on too much. But you have a funny way of making it all work out. You will find this to be the case with a situation that presents itself this week.

Scorpio

Sagittarius

Capricorn

Aquarius

are going to laugh and laugh until you cry,” said Rodgers. The six perfor mers will take audience members through the various situations and as different characters on the bus. The characters are also brought to life through crafted masks designed by Melody Anderson. The show is based on a busy Vancouver bus route, the No. 14, which ran from the richest neighbourhood in the city to the poorest. It meant people from all walks of life would sit next to each other and interact during the daily route. People will meet businessmen, little old ladies, children and various other passengers who board the bus. “They are true to life characters and every scene is different and has lots of heart and love and comedy,” said Rodgers. The Number 14 is Saturday (Oct. 6) at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday (Oct. 7) at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $60/ $55 for members and groups. People can purchase tickets online at www. porttheatre.com, by calling 250-754-8550 or at the Port Theatre ticket office at 125 Front St. reporter3@nanaimobulletin.com

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, you are ready for a change, but haven’t zeroed in on just what to do as of yet. A deep conversation later this week just might reveal all of the answers. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 It’s best to act while your motivation is high, Aquarius. Otherwise you are prone to extended periods of inactivity. Make the most of your productive moments.

McLaughlin, Mary Helen Hogan McClaerty Hendry (Myra) May 29, 1930 - September 28, 2012 McLaughlin, Mary Helen Hogan McClaerty Hendry fondly know as Myra to her family and friends passed away with her family by her side on Friday, September 28, 2012 at the Travellers Lodge in Nanaimo. Myra was born on May 29, 1930 in Greenock, Scotland and came to Canada with her husband William in 1957 and settled in Prince Rupert for several years before moving to Prince George where she worked at the hospital. In 1986 the couple retired to Lantzville. Myra was a wee lady with a a heart as big as her name and had a great sense of humour. Some of her interests included: walking, aerobics, Scottish country dancing, singing and most of all spending time with her family and friends. She was a very social person and was loved by everyone who met her. If you met Myra then you are smiling right now. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, William McLaughlin, her daughter, Margaret Collins, her sons Joseph (Vicki) McLaughlin, Ronnie McLaughlin, 5 grandchildren, Ryan (Sue) Collins, Randy (Amy) Collins, Joe (Carrie) Collins, Kelsey McLaughlin, Connor McLaughlin and 5 great grandchildren. Myra, you will be in our hearts forever. The family wish to thank Dr. Steyn and the caring and compassionate sta, residents and their families for making Myra’s 6 year stay at the Nanaimo’s Travellers Lodge so comfortable and secure. Myra was a member of the Lantzville Legion Branch #257. There will be a celebration of Myra’s life upstairs at the legion on Thursday, October 4, 2012 from 2pm to 5pm at the Lantzville Legion. In lieu of owers please send donations to the Nanaimo Travellers Lodge.

Raiders win as Sun miss their chance I V.I. DEFEATS rival Okanagan by 32-30 score. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The V.I. Raiders won again as the Okanagan Sun missed another chance. Saturday’s B.C. Football Conference rivalry game at Caledonia Park ended in a 32-30 win for the Raiders after the Sun missed a 37-yard field goal attempt in the closing seconds. “It was an ugly win, but it was a great win, it was a tough win,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, coach of the Raiders. The Sun led much of the way, but V.I. kicker Mark Mueller hit a 39-yard field goal with a little over two minutes left to give his team a two-point lead. The Sun were able to get into field goal range themselves, but the kick sailed wide right. It was the second time this season that the Sun have missed a potential game-winning kick at Caledonia Park. “Okie, whenever they come out, they always bring their A game, it’s always a tough game,” said Mueller. “When we came out after half, we brought our A game, we brought it to them and we came out with a win.” The Raiders scored just one touchdown in the first half, as Dustin Pedersen stretched out to haul in

a 16-yard reception from Jordan Yantz. The Sun took a 21-12 lead into halftime, but the Raiders ratcheted up their game in the third quarter. Yantz was able to punch in a one-yard TD, then the QB led a drive in which he went over the 10,000 career passing yards mark. On his very

next throw after reaching the milestone, he found a leaping Mike Schaper for a 27-yard touchdown. Sun coach Gavin Lake was disappointed to lose, but considered the loss to be a solid performance. “We knew we were going to be in a dogfight,” said Lake. “Our defence kept us in it and our offence

made some clutch plays at the right time and we got a key drive at the end, we got some yards, we got some range and our kicker got underneath it.” GRID BITS … Yantz finished 22-for-35 for 321 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. Pedersen made eight

catches for 124 yards and Schaper had eight catches for 104 yards. Defensively, Dylan Chapdelaine had eight solo tackles and four assisted tackles and Erling Skuggedal had four pass knockdowns … The Raiders’ next game is Saturday (Oct. 6) when it visits the Langley Rams. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Clippers win main event, then lose two BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Clippers won the weekend’s main event, but came out on the wrong end of their next two games. The Clips (4-3) played three games in three days in B.C. Hockey League action. They defeated Bill Bestwick’s Victoria Grizzlies 4-2 on Friday night at Frank Crane Arena, lost 5-2 to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on the road Saturday, then lost by another 5-2 score to the Coquitlam Express on Sunday back at Frank Crane. Friday’s big game attracted 1,523 fans, enough that some were still waiting to buy tickets as the former Clippers coach Bestwick was welcomed back over the public address system. “I was hopeful that it would be respectful and I think it was,” he said. The game itself was choppy due to a lot of penalties. Spencer Turcotte scored two and a half minutes in on his very first shift with the Nanaimo Clippers, and after the Grizzlies tied it with four minutes left in the period, Kyle Kramer scored on a breakaway. ◆ See ‘TEAM’ /27

Nanaimo Clippers goalie Jayson Argue ranges out of his crease to swat the puck away as Victoria Grizzlies opponent David Mazurek is checked by Clippers defenceman Chris Rygus on Friday at Frank Crane Arena.

TTeam gets away from game plan ◆ From /26 The Grizzlies’ Leo Fitzgerald, a former Clipper, scored on a one-timer to tie the game going into the third period. “We did a nice job of getting the puck down deep and working the puck down low in their end, which is what we wanted to do against t h e m , ” s a i d M i ke Vandekamp, Clippers coach. Nanaimo star ted the third period on the power play with a fresh sheet of ice, and Kramer scored on a point shot through traffic. “That seemed to set us back on our heels a bit and … that gave Nanaimo some momentum,” Bestwick said.
