RCMP rewards service and bravery BRIAN KIERAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

This region’s dedicated longserving peace officers and its citizen heroes were recognized Thursday at an RCMP ceremony in Campbell River. Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens, the Commanding Officer of “E” Division, recognized the service and bravery of 38 RCMP officers, auxiliary constables and citizens who received awards ranging from the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal to Certificates of Appreciation and the prestigious Commendation for Bravery. Bravery awards went to a lifesaving Campbell River trio,

Const. Ryan Pullin, Mitch Flanagan and William Wasyliw who were involved in the successful ocean rescue of three boaters in February 2010. Const. Alicia Beverage said: “Const. Pullen responded to a 911 call regarding several people whose boat had capsized off Willow Point. He discovered that three men without life jackets were approximately 200 metres offshore calling for help as they struggled to stay afloat. He realized immediately that because of the cold water and air temperature the three would become hypothermic very quickly and were in danger of drowning. Locating a 12-foot skiff Const. Pullen, with the help of William

Wasyliw, rowed out to (the) rescue ... Mr. Flanagan saw what was unfolding and brought his own boat to the rescue.” Beverage said the actions of the three represented the highest traditions of the RCMP and the highest standards of a Canadian citizen. Deputy Commissioner Callens said the awards are meant to celebrate significant achievements and long careers of exemplary service. He applauded “the selfless acts of bravery and service” being honoured. “It gives me an opportunity to extend my sincere appreciation to families and others who support the men and women of the RCMP. It is clear to me as it is to all of us in

the force that our jobs would be much more difficult if we did not rely on the support of our families and friends. “When one thinks of the duty of policing, a duty of the highest honour and at times the greatest challenge, we cannot help but think of personal and professional commitment, dedication to duty and dedication to communities.” Two BC Ferries crew members on the Queen of Burnaby, Kory Daoust and Stephanie Pap, were also recognized with Certificates of Appreciation for their attempts to rescue a young drowning victim off Comox in 2009.

Coun. Ron Kerr is insistent the city address safety concerns on Willis and Petersen roads but city staff says there’s no money for improvements. Kerr said, “citizens risk their lives daily” walking along the narrow shoulders of both roadways. “It’d be comical if it weren’t so dangerous,” Kerr said at a council meeting Oct. 2. “I walked the route the other day and although there’s some spots where there’s separation from the traffic, there’s numerous locations where you’re forced to walk on the road. To do nothing to improve the safety concerns in north Campbell River is not an option.” Kerr wants the city to install a continuous pedestrian and cycling path along Willis Road and on Petersen Road between Willis and 14th Avenue before winter sets in rather than wait for a re-build of Willis and Petersen roads – a project that has been on the city’s radar but pending available funding. “When the weather turns, the conditions only get worse,” Kerr said. “What I’d like to see is the process started immediately. There’s a situation there that is far too dangerous to extend into the winter season. If we could get started on it right away, within Continued on A3

Petersen: Costly project The prestigious Commendation for Bravery was presented to Campbell River RCMP Const. Ryan Pullin by Commissioner Craig Callens, the Commanding Officer of “E” Division (left). Callens helped pull three fishermen from icy waters off Willow Point in 2010. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal was accepted by Campbell River Staff Sergeant Troy Beauregard (below). BRIAN KIERAN/THE MIRROR

Continued from A1 this year’s budget, and then the more expensive areas for next year’s budget.” But city staff said the project would be costly, although it did not include a figure in its report to council. “The current financial plan does not contain funding for improvements along either Willis Road or Petersen in 2012,” said Drew Hadfield, the city’s transportation manager. “Continuous safe pedestrian and cycling routes along the Willis and Petersen Road corridors are impractical without significant investment. Both roadways contain bottlenecks where simple or inexpensive options do not exist (to widen the walkway).” There are also ditches which would need to be replaced with a piped storm water system before they could be filled, leveled and used for a pedestrian and cycling path. Coun. Claire Moglove said she could not support a project with so many unknowns. “We don’t know how much it will cost,” she said. “It might be 100,000 it might be 500,000, it might be a million, it might be two million, it might be three million – I have no idea. I can’t possibly support a

motion to get started on something I have no idea whatsoever it might cost.” But Kerr said it didn’t have to be the “Cadillac model” and the city could go ahead with improvements on Willis and Petersen using a cheaper method. “They could be serviced with blue chip crushed rock in the short-term and paved as finances improve, we need some creative solutions,” he said. Coun. Mary Storry stepped in and suggested the issue be put off until council’s Strategic Planning sessions, scheduled for this Thursday to Friday. “This certainly appears to be an item that’s very important to Councillor Ron Kerr and to members of the community,” Storry said. “What I’d like to suggest is we defer this item to the Strategic Planning session and Councillor Kerr could bring it forward at that time.” Items that council identifies as a priority will drive the budget. In the end council voted to defer Petersen and Willis Road improvements to the Strategic Planning sessions. Ron Neufeld, the city’s general manager of operations, said city staff would report back to council with a cost estimate.

Cultural traditions source of Laichwiltach Family Life’s strength

L

aichwiltach Family Life Society was named in honour of the Laichwiltach territory where the organization is located. “We named the society after the people of this land, with thanks for allowing those who are visitors to live on their traditional lands,” says Audrey Wilson, LFLS executive director. Laichwiltach Family Life Society strives to make services accessible, adaptable, culturally-appropriate, and respectful for Aboriginal community members living on and off reserve. A team of over 30 skilled staff – many of them Aboriginal – provide these services. Their programs and services cover the entire life cycle and include baby groups, parenttot, preschool, parenting programs, youth outreach and support, counselling and addiction recovery, employment skills training, an elders’ activity group, research projects, referrals, supervised visitation,

and community-wide events. The society prides itself on collaborating with many partners on northern Vancouver Island. LFLS currently has partnerships with Kwakiutl District Council Health Office, K’omoks First Nation, and Mamalilikulla Qwe’ Qwa’ Sot’em Band for addictions funding; Ann Elmore Transition House and Campbell River Family Services on a Stopping the Violence initiative that also serves Gold River; Campbell River Parks & Recreation for summer recreational activities for children in grades 3-6 and a Youth to Youth program that is open to the community at large; the BC Success by Six program for coordinating services for young children and holding a children’s health fair and other community gatherings; and the BC Ministry for Children and Family Development for an Aboriginal Child and Youth Mental Health program.

The staff of Laichwiltach Family Life are gearing up to celebrate the society’s 20th anniversary on Oct. 12.

Throughout all of these programs, Laichwiltach Family Life Society strives to return to the source of their cultural traditions, doing what Aboriginal people have done since time immemorial – centering families, respect-

ing elders, and engaging in talking circles. “We are enriched by the many First Nations and Métis cultures that community members bring to the programs and that come alive for children and youth as a source of pride

and strength,” Wilson says. Laichwiltach Family Life Society in Campbell River, was created 20 years ago to provide respectful, culturallybased programs for First Nations and Métis families living in urban and on-

reserve communities on northern Vancouver Island. Many people describe the non-profit society as a lifeline. The society started with family violence prevention groups and individual counselling, but its programs

have steadily grown in scope, scale, and geographic reach. They now serve anyone of Aboriginal ancestry, with or without Indian or Métis status, living on or off-reserves, as well as non-Aboriginal partners living with an Aboriginal person. The client base includes many Aboriginal people who have moved to the region from other parts of Canada, and many children who move from the west coast of Vancouver Island to spend the winter months with family in Campbell River. Laichwiltach fills persisting gaps in services and cultural safety in the mainstream service system. It promotes cultural learning and positive identity by providing culturally based, communitydriven programming. The Laichwiltach story begins in 1991, when four First Nations women on northern Vancouver Island broke the silence around Continued on A7

Laichwiltach: Community service hub Continued from A5 domestic violence. Audrey Wilson of We Wai Kai First Nation (Cape Mudge), Pauline Janyst of Da’naxd’xw First Nation (Harbledown Island), Barb Mitchell of K’omoks First Nation (Comox), and Lorna Quatell of Wei Wai Kum First Nation (Campbell River) wanted to provide a safe place where Aboriginal women who were experiencing domestic violence could get help and support. The need for such a nurturing place was desperate in an area where pervasive rac-

ism created huge barriers to services for First Nations people. For Janyst, the society’s founding administrator and program coordinator, establishing the Laichwiltach Family Life Program was a dream come true. Janyst realized that she really wanted to dedicate her time and energy to her own people. As a First Nations woman who volunteered as a victim services worker, she was all too familiar with the denial that existed in mainstream community agencies – denial about the needs of

family members living from crisis to crisis and denial about the lack of culturally-safe counselling and family intervention services for First Nations women seeking help. In 1991, Janyst approached three women from other First Nations in the region who shared her concerns and goals. These four women went on to become the founders of the Laichwiltach Family Life Society. In those early months, the women met around a kitchen table or at office space loaned to them by the Kwakiutl Territorial

Fisheries Commission (now A-Tlegay). They shared their dreams for supporting families in their communities and discussed how to make them a reality.

Our View

A welcome defeat of gag law At least one of the election gag laws has been thrown out. The B.C. Court of Appeal has decided that an attempt by the provincial government to control free speech We say: Elections in the period before a provincial election isn’t constitutional. This belong to the after the government tried several citizens, not the times to restrict how much money politicians third parties can spend in the 60-day window before an election campaign officially begins. An attempt by Victoria to cut that down to 40 days didn’t work either. Governments and political parties have interfered

in the election process far too much. Elections are not the property of politicians — they are the property of citizens. They are the one chance that citizens have to determine who is in power, what policies will be brought in and what changes can be worked towards. Yet at the federal and provincial level, election spending has been restricted for years. Not only are individual candidates restricted in their spending, which does at least level the playing field a bit, but individuals, businesses, unions and interest groups have severe restrictions on how much they can spend to send messages to voters. This is what the province was trying to do in the pre-election period — mainly to cut off messages

from anti-government groups. The BC Liberals were aiming at the B.C. Government Employees Union and the B.C. Teachers Federation, who ran pungent anti-government messages before the 2009 election officially began. Individuals, organizations and businesses should have every right to spend money before and during campaigns. It’s good that the Court of Appeal has struck down restrictions during the pre-election period. It would be nice if a court would strike down the restrictions which apply during federal and provincial elections as well. The only purpose they serve is to keep the election process dominated by political parties. – Black Press

Letters

Free to your own opinion On Sunday, Sept. 30 while driving through Courtenay I noticed a very large group of our citizens rallying with anit-abortion signs. Living in a free country where you have the right to protest and make your opinions known, I took notice. Personally I believe, if this group could succeed, it would set Canadian women back 60 years or more. It could take them to a time period when they were forced to have an unwanted child or have to deal with backyard illegal abortions artisits which used to leave many women with serious infections or even death. The main thing about the anti-abortion crowd was when I asked a few of them if you stop people from having abortions because of rape, health issues, incest or poverty how many would they personally be willing to adopt? Two? Three? Ten? All I got by asking this question was tight lips with no reply. Obviously most did not want these unborn children either. Perhaps they should do a little more thinking. To go through life unloved cannot be very much fun.

Skills training ‘our mission,’ NDP’s Dix declares

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

My column on skills training a couple of weeks ago gave short shrift to the NDP position: tax the banks and hand out grants for women’s studies, sociology and other worthless pursuits, while skilled jobs go begging. That’s a pretty crude caricature, so I sat down with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his legislature office last week to get a better sense of his thinking on the subject. Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades particularly. He meets frequently with business people now, and his recent speeches emphasize that every one of them talks about the growing shortage of skilled employees. Dix credits Premier Christy Clark and jobs minister Pat Bell with

making some good moves recently, announcing equipment upgrades for vocational programs around the province. He says it’s because the NDP have been “pounding away at them for eight months” about freezing advanced education spending in their March budget. Dix calls that a crucial mistake and predicts the government will reverse it soon. “So I think, if we’re going to have a mission for four years as a government, if we’re elected, this is the mission: to start to address the skills shortage,” he told me. In his speech to the recent municipal convention, and again at an NDP provincial council meeting, Dix zeroed in on B.C.’s apprenticeship system. Since the B.C. Liberals took

it from trade unions and set up a Crown corporation called the Industry Training Authority in 2004, the completion rate for apprentices has fallen to 37 per cent, he said. Dix assured me he isn’t proposing to “blow up” the ITA, or hand control back to unions. They will have “a voice,” along with business. Speaking to the NDP executive, Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, president of the non-union Independent Contractors and Businesses’ Association, as the symbol of trades training decline. Not surprisingly, Hochstein has a different take. The 37 per cent figure is misleading, Hochstein said, because under the ITA there are currently 32,000 apprentices in the system, twice

as many as when it was union controlled. Many drop out in the first year, and Alberta claims a better completion rate because they don’t start counting until the second year. And when Dix touts Alberta’s “mandatory” trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multi-skilling, multitasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of training.” tfletcher@blackpress.ca

ATV runs amok Here’s a recipe for arrest: Drink and drive an uninsured ATV on the highway while towing a boat. On Oct. 4 city RCMP officers responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision at the intersection of Hwy 28 and Willow Road. “A male had been driving an uninsured ATV on the road while towing a small boat,” RCMP Staff Sergeant Troy Beauregard reports. “The male lost control of the ATV rolling it, as a result the boat trailer broke free crashing into a nearby truck.” The driver was injured and transported to hospital with a fractured shoulder and hip. It was determined that the 25-yearold Campbell River man was impaired. Charges are pending drug test results.

A truck’s funeral

ALISTAIR TAYLOR/THE MIRROR

An uninsured ATV and the boat it was towing were involved in an accident on WIllow Road Oct. 4.

At 3 a.m. Oct. 2 RCMP responded to a report of a hit and run after a GMC truck had collided with Sutton’s Funeral Home embedding itself in the building. Beauregard says an RCMP civilian employee came across the crash moments after it occurred and observed a male fleeing. Investigators tracked the driver to a residence where he was arrested. He was charged with multiple offences under the

Motor Vehicle Act including Failing to Remain at Collision Scene. Sutten’s Funeral Home Manager Amy Gordon says: “There was structural damage. You can see skid marks on the front lawn. For the security of the families we serve, the necessary steps were taken to secure the building until repairs can take place.”

Drunks attack officer An RCMP officer

responded to a report of a man and two women intoxicated and causing a disturbance and interrupting traffic downtown on Oct. 5. The male became combative and attempted to strike the officer. The officer took the male to the ground to control him when the two females intervened by assaulting the officer. “Two civilian witnesses then offered assistance to the officer,” Beauregard says. “The officer was

able to control the male and handcuff him while back up officers arrived. It was determined that the male had attempted to strike the officer with a hammer.” All three are facing charges of Assaulting a Police Officer and Obstruction. The officer was not injured. “The RCMP would like to thank the civilian witnesses for coming to the aid of the member during this incident,” the staff sergeant says. 10 impaired drivers RCMP road checks Friday and Saturday evening netted 10 impaired drivers. Drivers were issued three-day suspensions, 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibitions and Criminal Code charges. Three were impaired by drugs.

deer. Proficient tree climbers, cougars can jump 20 feet from a stationary position and jump down to the ground from a height of 60 feet. They use the trees for a resting spot with a perfect view of potential prey. Although their favorite food is deer, they will also snack on rabbits, beaver, raccoons and occasionally sheep or other young farm animals. Cougars prefer to hunt at dusk and dawn, but they can roam around at any time of day and in any season, two-yearold cougars are more prevalent in spring as they become independent searching for a place to adopt as their territory. Cougar tracks are very visible in soft ground. Like all cats they are equipped with retractable claws which are not visible in their footprint unlike dogs and bears that leave claw prints.

Keegan Taberner’s yacht Themistocles is on the hard under repair, but his dream to help young people with diabetes is still under full sail. The grads at Keegan’s alma mater, Timberline Secondary, presented the 18-year-old diabetic sailing fundraiser with a cheque for more than $2,200 Friday. The cheque from the Timberline Grad Legacy Fund is payable to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and brings Keegan’s recent fundraising efforts to about $10,000. Timberline Principal Kevin Harrison says: “Last year’s grads wanted to do something good for the community. “The money they raise they donate in part to groups ranging from the SPCA to sending kids to Africa to work and this is an important part of that. It is a very altruistic thing

Themistocles hit a rock near Sooke and the 1,700 kilometre journey was cut short by two weeks. Themistocles in under repair at the Ocean Pacific boatyard in Campbell River and will soon be up for sale. Keegan is studying to take his real estate agent’s exam and wants to write a short novel about his Odyssey on behalf of diabetes research. Keegan says: “I will always be involved fundraising for juvenile diabetes and we are still collecting donations.” He says people can donate by visiting his website at keegantaberner. com.

Ask Your Campbell River

I want permanent insurance but the premiums are high, and I also need to save for my retirement. Permanent Insurance can be expensive, depending on your age and health when you buy it. However, some permanent Darlene Garat insurance products, such as Financial Advisor certain whole life contracts, can be designed to pay you back an income in retirement. You pay in, have the insurance coverage during the critical earning years, take out years of income and – the permanent insurance remains in place! This type of retirement savings/ financial security strategy is ideal for those who don’t have much RRSP room, or have used it up and still need to save more for the retirement they have planned. Plus, the money grows tax-sheltered unlike most other non-registered investments.

As a breast cancer survivor I support Breast Cancer Awareness month and I know that only a fraction of the donations collected for breast cancer research are used toward its PREVENTION. How can I help myself and others? There is a website www.pinkandgreenribbon.com Dr. Ingrid Pincott ND which is a grassroots organization Naturopathic Physician dedicated to education and research on the connection of the environment and women’s health. The National Film Board of Canada released a documentary in 2011 called “Pink Ribbon Inc” based on the book written by Samantha King that is also worth watching. In order to thrive and not just survive, naturopathic physicians follow Dr. Lise Alschuler’s “Five to Thrive” plan by helping patients transform their internal body landscape through five key pathways: immune, inflammation, hormone, insulin resistance, digestion and detoxification pathways.

Island Style

The safest is to keep your puppy - or adult dog - somewhere in your home where he can not escape. In his crate with a lot of appropriate chew toys is best, even cover the crate with a thick blanket to muffle the fireworks. Plug in a radio with the music on fairly loud to drown out the noise outside. Keep the door to the room closed. Make sure everyone in the house is aware that they are not to let him out until later in the evening when you’re sure the trick Cathy Merrithew or treaters have stopped. Even then, take him out in your fenced yard on a leash. If someone lets off a firecracker it’s possible for him to just run wild and scared and even scale a fence in a crazy frenzy. Make sure he’s been outside to potty well before kids start arriving. For an older dog or puppy that’s worried, a fabulous product called a “Thundershirt” will help him feel more secure and help ease the anxiety. If you don’t have one, try fitting him with a fairly tight fitting t-shirt and be sure he’s tucked away somewhere cozy. Check to be sure you have a current city license and an engraved tag with your phone numbers on it attached to your dogs’ collar. Many dogs disappear from their homes during Halloween night and this will help bring him home to you safe and sound.

Get ready for Halloween, I can do costume makeup for all ages!

“Dollar-Cost Averaging” is simply investing equal amounts regularly and periodically over a specific time period into a particular investment or Peter Garat portfolio. By doing so, more units are purchased when prices Certified Financial Planner are low and fewer units are purchased when prices are high. The point of this is to lower the total average cost per unit of the investment, giving the investor a lower overall cost for the units purchased over time. Investors who take advantage of this strategy using an automatic purchase option usually find it easier to fund RRSPs (because they don’t have to come up with a big chunk of cash once a year), and often experience less overall volatility in their portfolio if funds being purchased are professionally allocated.

What do you do if someone has a nosebleed?

Halloween & the Concerns for your Pets

A nosebleed may start for no obvious reason or may be caused by blowing the nose, and injury to the nose, or in more serious cases, by an indirect injury such as a fractured skull. To treat a nosebleed that is not caused by a head or neck injury, you want to place the casualty in a sitting position with the head slightly forward. Leaning Jennifer Comeau forward allows the blood to drain Branch Manager from the nose and mouth instead of back into the throat. Tell the casualty to compress the entire fleshy part below the bridge of the nose firmly with the thumb and index finger for about 10 minutes or until the bleeding stops. Tell the casualty to breath through their mouth and not to blow their nose for a few hours after the bleeding has stopped. If the bleeding does not stop with this first aid or if it starts again in a short period of time, seek medical help. Do not try to stop a nosebleed resulting from a suspected head or neck injury.

Celebrations of Halloween can be fun for all but pose possible risks for our four legged friends. Pets ingesting our “Trick or treating” loot can be life threatening. Candies, gums, mints, baked goods and chocolate containing the “sugar free” sweetener xylitol are especially poisonous, causing rapid hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and liver failure in dogs and possibly other Dr. Peter Woodward species (ferrets). Chocolate is toxic to pets. Chocolate contains theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in the cocoa bean, it increases urination and affects the central nervous system as well as the heart muscle. While amounts vary by type of chocolate, it’s the theobromine that is poisonous to dogs. Signs of chocolate toxicity include tremors, nervousness, vomiting, diarrhea, increased heart rate, and in severe cases, hyperthermia, seizures and death. If you suspect that your pet has eaten chocolate, please contact Campbell River Veterinary Hospital or your family Veterinarian for assistance. Remember keep your pets safe for the holiday, and Happy Halloween!

Once you’ve completed the water change, turn off the pump and filter and remove them. Clean out both and store them in your garage. The pump and filter don’t need to be running during the winter, and it’s actually better for your fish if you don’t have them running. Save energy, save wear and tear and a better environment for the fish. A pond that has been maintained over the active pond season will winter very well. It’s that easy!

» Creative Studio

Sarah Kirk

To shut your pond down, do a large Owner water change, removing all organic debris such as leaves so they don’t rot over the winter. ALWAYS use Laguna Water Prep when replacing water in your pond. Our water has chlorine in it and if you’re on a well, your water will have heavy metals so using Laguna Water Prep makes most water safe for your fish immediately. Dose well with Laguna Bio Booster & Laguna Bio Sludge to help boost bacteria & break down of the remaining debris.

» Puppy Tips

October is the time to shut down ponds...plants are no longer growing, fish have stopped digesting food and it’s getting chilly. Fish should NOT be fed once their water temperature is cooler than 10˚. If finishing them off for the season with Laguna Spring & Fall food– enriched with wheat germ, they can be fed until the temperature is 8 degrees.

Why is having a clean Air Filter important?

13. Sound Sleep. Sitting in a hot tub raises the body temperature and enhances your ability to fall asleep. Evening soaks promote restful, uninterrupted slumber. 14. Relief for Arthritis Aches and Stiffness. Warm, pulsating water increases blood supply to aching joints, which helps to remove inflammatory particles from the Terry Collins area and relieves pain. Owner 15. Buoyant Exercising. Exercising in water is easier on the joints than exercising on land. Many hot tubs are deep enough to stand in, and almost all offer enough room for chair exercises. 16. Stretching Out. The warm water in a hot tub decreases muscle tension, which allows greater flexibility.You can stretch better in the water. 17. Post-Op Therapy. Once the wound heals, rehabilitation programs may include hydrotherapy to help patients get back on their feet faster.

The air filter traps dirt particles, which can cause damage to engine cylinders, walls, pistons and piston rings. It also plays a role in keeping contaminants off the airflow sensor and sometimes in Lyle Wolfe cleaning the air that enters Owner the crankcase for crankcase ventilation.Your car’s engine can use close to 40,000 litres of air for every 3.5 litres of fuel burned. Driving with a dirty filter restricts the air entering the engine and if severe, can impact fuel economy and performance. Be sure to have your air filter checked at every oil change and replaced as needed. Come down to Great Canadian Oil Change today and talk to them about the air quality in your car!

Call Toll Free 1.855.787.8294 If you haven’t experienced or had a scare of a “frozen shoulder”, many of us know at least one person who has had frozen shoulder in the past. So what exactly is a frozen shoulder and how can we avoid getting one? Frozen shoulder, known medically as adhesive capsulitis, is a soft tissue disorder resulting in pain, stiffness and a gradual but progressive loss of motion in the shoulder joint. It can affect 2-5% of the population, most Sarah Hrabi, commonly women between the ages of Physiotherapist 40-60. Risk factors include diabetes, cervical disk disease, immobilization, trauma, cardiovascular and pulmonary disease, hyperthyroidism and autoimmune diseases. Recovery from frozen shoulder can take up to 24 months but in many cases can be aided by working with a physiotherapist to create a specialized exercise program. If you think you might be at risk for frozen shoulder the most important thing to do is maintain shoulder movement as much as possible and seek medical attention. Physiotherapists are trained in specific shoulder mobility and function and are a great resource! Frozen Shoulder: A clinical review. British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 70, No. 5, May 2009.

Experts’ Advice

If you don’t want C.P.R. to be administered on you, then you are required to have the proper documentation which needs to be signed by a Doctor. Gurdeep Sidhu, CGA Notary Public The paramedics (ambulance employees) are required to perform C.P.R. unless they have a Do Not Resuscitate order. Therefore, after you obtain a D.N.R. order, you should keep it in an easily accessible place such as taped to the fridge.You can also obtain and wear a D.N.R. bracelet, though you would still require an order with a Doctor’s signature. Another option would be to have D.N.R. tattooed across your chest, but you might have trouble finding a Doctor to sign that one.

The Interne Internet has changed many things in ou our day to day lives. In the area of Graphic Gra Design, it has had a tremendous effect. Now anyone anyon with a word processing program (i.e (i.e. MS Word) or page layout program (M (MS Publisher, Print Shop, Sharilyn Irving etc.) and a cconnection to the internet, can hypothetically hypothe be a graphic designer if tthey know what they are doing and have an eye for layout and ddesign. The biggest problem, however, are the images and graphics that people “pull off the web” to incorporate into their documents. Just because it looks good on the screen doesn’t mean it will look good iin print. All our mo monitors, from CRT to LED, have an optimized resolution aat 96 DPI. That means that if an image is at 96 DPI, it will look ggood on the screen and you can see it very well. However, when w printing anything from a file, most printers , from inkjet to commercial copiers, have a minimum optimized resolution aat 300 DPI. This means that if you would like to print a document with an image, the image has to be at least 300 DPI at the size tthe image is being printed at. So, if you are ar pulling images from the web, make sure that they are at a high enough resolution so when you print them, your images look good.

Kept on a warm windowsill over winter, or in a tray with a T 5 florescent light, your cuttings will quickly develop roots and leaves. How to do it - Select healthy, squat and fat shoots. Remove them from the parent plant by cutting immediately above a bud.

There is a lot John August of silverware Robilliard Brantvein collecting dust in boxes and drawers in almost every home. The thing is to find out if it is Stirling silver or silver plate. Stirling silver is what you are looking for. Normally it is marked Stirling, 925 or it has a hallmark. A single Stirling fork is worth approximately 40 dollars, so you can see how quickly the value can add up. We would be happy to help you determine if it is silver or give you an appraisal. Leave with the knowledge of what you have or cash in hand.

When a Seller enters into a Listing with a REALTOR® they agree to pay the Listing Brokerage a commission out of the proceeds of the sale. The Listing Brokerage then agrees in the Listing Contract to offer a portion of that commission to a Cooperating Brokerage who assists in obtaining a Jenna Nichol Buyer. Sometimes however, REALTOR® the commission offered to the Buyers Agent is less than what that Agent expects to receive for his/her services. In that case the Agent may ask the Buyer to make up the difference. This may be agreed to in advance with a Buyers Agency Contract. Often times in order to make up the difference, the Buyer will agree in writing to allow his/her Agent to include in the offer to purchase that the additional commission will form part of the purchase price.

• Remove flower buds and lower leaves from the bottom half of each cutting and cut the stem just below a node, where there is a concentration of the plant’s own hormones. • Dip the base of each cutting in a small amount of rooting hormone, such as Power Root, to stimulate root growth. • Fill pots with Coco coir or a good potting soil mixed with sand or vermiculite to aid drainage. Insert 2 or 3 cuttings around the edge of each pot.Water the soil or coco and stand pots in a well-lit position, indoors. Do not cover the pots. • After a few weeks, a corky callus will develop over the cut end of the stem. A good root system will have developed within 6-8 weeks. • In March or April, knock each cutting out of the pot and transplant into individual pots. Keep well-watered and plant out in spring.

Timberline Wolves running back Hunter Mackay (33) eludes a Howe Sound block during Saturday’s game at Timberline.

Wolves crush Sounders 42-6 The Timberline Football Team was told they couldn’t play football this year – but they simply didn’t listen and they found a way to step onto the field anyway – winning their second game of the season 42 – 6 against Howe Sound last Saturday on the Timberline Field. Under the autumn afternoon sun, with cowbells and clappers and pump-up music getting the crowd going, the team, supporters, spectators

and media crew were treated to a great passing and running game full of interceptions, literally breathtaking tackles, touchdowns, sacks, incredible line heroics and a push down the field again and again. Leading by example, the veterans at the heart of the team clearly commanded a never get lazy work ethic during the game. And just as quickly as they proved they deserved to be

on the field, they also proved their character as individual players were quick to praise the effort of the entire team effort for the success of the day. And the support of the team and the players is offered from beyond the roster. When Coast Realty became aware of the determination of the young men on the Wolves Football Team to not give up, to not let anyone

tell them they couldn’t play football, to stick together and find a way to play their senior year as the team they have been since pee wee – in Brian Bailey’s memory, at the Home Opener football game at center field last Saturday, Coast presented the Wolves with a $1,000.00 donation to help keep the team together and moving forward. The next game is on Saturday, Oct 13 at 1:30 p.m. on the Timberline field.

Ravens AGM puts a wrap on the season The Campbell River Ravens Jr B Lacrosse Society (senior lacrosse) will hold their AGM on Thurs. Oct. 25 at 6 p.m. in the Pinecrest Room at Strathcona Gardens. The Society has been supporting senior lacrosse on the north island since 2001 so let’s keep it going. A review of the 2012 season and elections will take place. Executive positions such as President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Registrar will need to be filled in order to move forward with a 2013 season. Other board and volunteer positions will also be required. If you are interested in supporting the 2013 season please come to the meeting. Get involved with your team and help give the opportunity for players to continue box lacrosse in Campbell River at the senior level.

Mountain biking guru to map area trails C

anadian mountain biking guru Peter Oprsal will be wheeling into Campbell River next week to map local trails for his internationally recognized website. Oprsal, whose “bikepirate” website gets more than 14,000 hits a month and up to 30,000 visits in the summer months, will be here Oct. 10 to explore and map some of the finest biking trails of B.C. here in the Campbell River region. Catherine Temple, whose “gocampbellriver” website celebrates our tourism and business potential, has been helping organizing Oprsal’s tour. “Bike riding tourism and adventures are worth hundreds of millions in revenue in B.C. and Campbell River is poised to takes its place on the map as a go to destination,” Temple says. “The ball is seriously running down hill.” Oprsal says Campbell River has “a vast

mapping tour. She said the local cycle club is also involved. “This is the first time they will all be working together

to grow their industry here.” Durrand said he will start by taking Oprsal through the huge network of trails in

the Snowden Demonstration Forest. Having Campbell River’s trails on bike pirate will be “a huge help,” he said.
