New hospital to generate jobs ‘tsunami’ BRIAN KIERAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

BRIAN KIERAN/THE MIRROR

Pipeline protesters got a warm welcome from NDP MLA Claire Trevena who said: “We think the B.C. government has effectively sold out.”

Bitumen bash attracts 60-plus to MLA’s office BRIAN KIERAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

More than 60 opponents of the proposed Enbridge and Kinder Morgan pipelines and increased coastal oil tanker traffic rallied Wednesday outside the Campbell River office of NDP MLA Claire Trevena. Scores of passing motorists honked their support as the protesters waved banners, chanted and cheered at the “Defend Our Coast” event, one of many at political offices across B.C.

The fight to keep Alberta tar sands crude bitumen oil out of B.C. attracted supporters from distant points. Sointula resident Nancy Walsh and her dog Kita were on the front lines. “I have been supporting this cause for a long time,” Walsh said. “My involvement started with the hearings in Port Hardy. We have to halt the expansion of the tar sands and building more pipelines here is too much risk and too much cost for B.C.” Trevena said: “I’m very pleased to see so many people turn up.

It’s an indication that people are clearly very worried that this pipeline project could go ahead. I hope the government listens to this protest and similar protests across the province. We think the B.C. government has effectively sold out.” Council of Canadians Campbell River chapter spokesman Richard Hagensen said: “We are protesting both the Enbridge and the Kinder Morgan pipelines.

The first ripples of a jobs “tsunami” will hit Campbell River’s shores next June as work begins on site preparation for construction of the new hospital. That good news comes from Tom Sparrow, Vancouver Island Health Authority’s (VIHA) Chief Project Officer. Fresh from a similar hospital construction project in Fort St. John, Sparrow says he is already working with local educators and community organizations like the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce to set the stage for the job-generating project.

lutely phenomenal. “The first thing these construction companies look for is local trades, local service companies and local suppliers. They can’t access trades people in other parts of the country and bring them in because they are busy working too. Everyone’s busy. We want to work closely with the high schools, the college. We want to talk about apprenticeships programs and opportunities with the trades associations.” Sparrow said these meetings have already begun. “We want to make sure the community is aware of what the opportunities are,” he said. When you combine the new hospital and BC Hydro’s John Hart Generating Station rehabilitation there will be more than $1 billion in construction underway, Sparrow said. The project manager said shovels will hit the ground in 2014, “but we will be doing preliminary work probably in June of 2013.” That work will include demolishing a small piece of the Wellness Centre and all of the Public Health facility on Birch Street adjacent to the parking lot.

The demolition of the old hospital will present challenges, Sparrow said. “The demolition will take longer than a regular office building. It’s an older facility so we’ll have to deal with potential

Trevena: Court reforms merely “administrative” court delays.” NDP justice critic Leonard Krog (Nanaimo) has repeatedly pointed to a reduction of 16 provincial court judges since 2005. As well, the recent imposition of a government-wide hiring freeze has slowed the replacement of prosecutors, sheriffs and court clerks, because each new hire requires approval from the head of the public service. Bond has questioned why waiting time in courts goes up even when the crime rate and the number of new cases declines.

New bus routes require approval from the Passenger Transportation Board of British Columbia.

More than 20 jobless workers came up empty this week when they went to the Catalyst main gate expecting to meet the new industrial park owner offering job opportunities. Alberta developer Harold Jahn was nowhere to be found Monday through Thursday and crews contracted to Catalyst were still busy decommissioning the property. Another deadline for the sale of the Catalyst Paper Elk Falls Mill came and went Oct. 19 with neither party to the sale offering any explanation for the third missed deadline since the transaction was announced with great fanfare in mid-August. A contract employee working at the mill’s main gate house said more than 20 job seekers and relatives of job seekers had dropped by looking for the new owner and job application forms. “They read in the paper that (Jahn) would be here,” he said. Earlier this month Jahn, the owner of Pacifica Deep Sea Terminals, told the Mirror: “A group of us will be at the site during the week of Oct. 22 using former Catalyst offices at the main gate.” He promised there would be forms available for prospective employees to fill out and they would be

forwarded to lessees. There would also be an “open house” in November, he said. Thursday morning on the Mirror deadline a spokesperson for Catalyst said no update on the status of the sale was imminent. Calls to Jahn were going to his cellular voice mail. City Manager Andy Laidlaw said: “We have been monitoring this situation closely and, to my knowledge, the sale completion has not happened at this point.” The one-page Pacifica Deep Sea Terminals website states: “Pacifica is focused on transforming the former Elk Falls Catalyst paper mill lands into a dynamic industrial park and port facility with the goal of creating over 400 full time employment positions for the community of Campbell River within the coming 36 months.” The website even gives the property a new name, “Pacifica Industrial Park,” which it says is “strategically located for marine, aquaculture, light manufacturing, assembly facilities, distribution warehouses, and clean energy technology developers.” Jahn has claimed to be meeting with existing tenants and to be working with “20 or 30 prospective new tenants.” He has said he would bring some of his existing companies to the new industrial park.

threats and intimidation and was penalized financially due to charges and the ongoing delays. At the time Judge Doherty blamed the delays on a shortage of judges for the North Island region. Bond said the government will begin implementing the “activities” including: “Establish a new governance structure, develop an annual Justice and Public Safety Plan, hold a regular Justice Summit and create better administrative management tools that will help enhance transparency and accountability within the system.” But Trevena said: “These are just administrative changes after many years of cuts and damage to the court system.”

• SERTS • SERVICE

North Island NDP MLA Claire Trevena says “administrative” changes in B.C.’s court management system designed to reduce the backlog of criminal cases do not go far enough to address years of damage. This week Attorney General Shirley Bond launched a new court management system designed to improve efficiency including the establishment of a new oversight organization. Trevena told the Mirror: “We need to ensure the tangible support is there; that we have the resources and the judges in place. The judiciary has been stumbling along with many cases being dismissed because of

cesses have increased by 35 per cent. The changes Bond has implemented are based on a review of the system conducted by lawyer Geoffrey Cowper who blamed the problem, in part, on defence lawyers who have an incentive to delay cases. Trevena says the issue reminds her of the tragic case of a Quadra Island dog killing in 2008 that was dismissed in February 2011 because it had been delayed. Provincial Cour t Judge Peter Doherty issued a stay of proceedings on charges of killing an animal and careless use of a firearm. The accused had pleaded not guilty to both charges.

Big Rock boat ramp work may be scaled back KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

KRISTEN DOUGLAS/THE MIRROR

Variety Coin Kid keeps on giving Nick King, Campbell River’s Variety Coin Kid, received a $330.60 donation from Bank of Montreal staffers Chelsie Krentz, left, branch manager, and Leslie Morton, finance service manager. The funds were raised over one day through client and staff donations. King is raising money for Variety-The Children’s Charity to give back to the non-profit which gave him a custom-built bicycle last year. King has raised $5,100 so far for Variety and is collecting donations until Oct. 31 through his website, www.variety.bc.ca/coindrive.htm

Strapped for cash, the city may be forced to scale down the level of improvements to Big Rock boat ramp. Earlier this year, the city received bids from nine companies to design upgrades to the public boat launch however, the process was cancelled due to a lack of finances. The nine submissions ranged in price from $77,555 to $286,550. The highest-scoring company came in $38,500 over budget with a bid of $103,522. Now, city staff are planning to re-issue a Request for Proposals, with the scope of work scaled back to meet the city’s available budget – $70,000 allocated from the 2012 Parks Parcel Tax for a constructionready design and cost estimate for the upgrades. Part of the scaled

b a c k ve r s i o n i s thanks to a Memorandum of Understanding the city recently signed with Fisheries and Oceans Canada which allows the city to remove sediment from the boat ramp on a regular basis. “Originally, it was determined that the Big Rock boat ramp area would need considerable upgrades to prevent the current process of sediment deposition in the basin,” said Lynn Wark, parks project supervisor, in a report to council. “Now that the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) has been signed with DFO, regular maintenance in the basin will be possible, allowing us to retain the facility at a similar standard, which has been effective for recreational boaters for many years.” Other planned improvements will also have to be done on a smaller scale.

“Consequently, the level of standard for the washrooms, fish cleaning station and potential launch access have been scaled back as well, with an overall goal of providing an adequate facility more in line with potential available funds,” Wark said. Originally, the city was looking for design plans to include a docking facility that could accommodate up to eight averagesized boats. A revised scope of work now asks proponents to consider a removable, seasonal boat launch access. Further revisions include having a fish cleaning station with discharge to the ocean, rather than to the city’s sanitary system and two accessible public washrooms similar to those along the Seawalk, rather than two free-standing washrooms like those outside the Visitor Centre.

Public meetings to address challenges at BC Ferries will fail, say group of regional district chairs KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A group of coastal regional district chairs say the B.C. government’s upcoming public meetings surrounding cutbacks by BC Ferries will fail. The chairs, and chair representatives, are urging the Minister of Transportation to go back to the drawing board and simplify the process. “The strong opinion of the entire group was that the consultation

as proposed would be a dismal failure,” said Quadra Island Director Jim Abram. Abram, representing the Strathcona Re gional District, met with the group of coastal regional district chairs as well as T ranspor tation Ministry staff Oct. 17 in Nanaimo for a preconsultation session. Transportation Minister Mary Polak plans to begin public meetings in November to provide information to British Columbians

about the challenges facing the ferry system, namely a $26 million shortfall, despite an $80 million funding injection from the Ministry of Transportation and the go ahead from Ferry Commissioner Gord Macatee to raise rates 12 per cent over the next four years. Facing a decline in ridership, BC Ferries has been ordered by the province to come up with $30 million in service reductions over four years.

Service on minor routes – including the Quadra, Cortes, Denman, and Hornby runs – are expected to see the majority of the cuts. Transportation Minister Mary Polak said earlier this week her ministry will be conducting a series of public consultation meetings in communities that stand to be affected. Polak said her ministry will be looking for feedback from the public to gage the level

of support for BC Ferries’ proposals. But Colin Palmer, chair of the Power River Regional District, who wrote a letter to Polak on behalf of the 13 coastal regional district chairs, said the process is flawed. “If the public are going to give you valid input during the consultation process, we believe considerably more work is necessary to refine the consultation process,” Palmer wrote. “The backg round

information intended for the public to understand the challenges facing the coastal ferry service is incomplete and presupposes an existing high level of knowledge on a wide range of issues and details of the coastal ferry service. As a case in point, the request to our group to fill out feedback forms within two days was very inappropriate even though our group is arguably well versed on the issues. We also have strong concerns

that you and the government will be held accountable to the outcome of a flawed process.” The coastal chairs also agreed that there needs to be a consultation process in every ferry-dependent community, that the marine highway (ferries) need to be treated the same as the highway system, and that the consultation process is being rushed and will not be effective the way its being proposed by the province.

Greyhound bus cuts opposed by regional district KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The Strathcona Regional District is opposing Greyhound Canada’s plans to reduce bus service b e t we e n C a m p b e l l River and Nanaimo. Craig Anderson, regional district chair, wrote a letter to Greyhound Oct. 22 to voice its concerns. “This is to advise that the Strathcona

Regional District does not support the proposed service level reductions and believes that such reductions would not serve the interests of residents and businesses within the region,” Anderson wrote in his letter. Greyhound is proposing to reduce service on 15 different routes across the province and has already filed an application with the B.C. Passenger Trans-

portation Board seeking approval of the cuts. Greyhound currently runs at least two trips each way between Campbell River and Nanaimo per day. The bus company wants to reduce that down to a minimum of one trip each way daily. And that’s not sitting well with local directors. “The regional district believes that the

current level of service should be maintained,” Anderson wrote. But that likely isn’t sustainable as Greyhound reports it lost $1.4 million on scheduled passenger operations in B.C. last year. Grant Odsen, regional manager of Greyhound, said the losses could be attributed to increased costs for fuel and maintenance, reduced ridership, and the emergence of alternate transporta-

Willow Point Hall secures a spot on Heritage Register KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

It’s been nearly a year and a half but Tom McKenzie will finally see his beloved Willow Point Lions Hall written into the city’s heritage books. At council’s Committee of the Whole m e e t i n g T u e s d ay afternoon, councillors voted by a 3-2 margin to put the storied hall on the Community Heritage Re gister, making it the second property after the Sybil Andrews Cottage to make the cut. Councillors Larry Samson, Claire Moglove and Mayor Walter Jakeway voted in favour of giving the hall heritage status while councillors Andy Adams and Ron Kerr were opposed to the motion, which

gives the hall formal recognition of its heritage values. Councillors Ryan Mennie and Mary Storry were not in attendance at the meeting. Samson said he made the motion because the hall is an important piece of Campbell River’s story. “It was a vital part of the Willow Point history,” he said. “Back in the 40s and 50s it was the centre of activity.” Samson said the facility, which today hosts several community functions and costs just $20 per hour to rent out, is the city’s lone remaining original hall. Others, including the old Community Centre, have all long since been torn

down. Samson said the hall is unique in that the original wood flooring (still intact) is made of plywood set on edge. McKenzie, who has been spearheading a campaign to get heritage status for the Willow Point Hall since the spring of 2011, agrees the hall is a special place. He had been contemplating getting the wheels in motion to make the hall a heritage site for the past 10 years, but went public with the idea in May 2011 when he asked the community to come forward with

said. “I have a long history with Willow Point, my family has a long history with Willow Point. The Willow Point Hall was part of it. We would have Christmas parties at the Willow Point Hall; it was very widely used for a number of functions.” Samson said adding the hall to the heritage register will create a kind of heritage block which includes nearby Sybil Andrews Cottage and Walter Morg an studio, a place Samson recalls going for tea when he was young. The heritage status

will also allow McKenzie and the Lions to apply for federal and provincial heritage grants to help maintain the hall. The hall needs a new foundation, a new roof, and upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms. The Lions also want to preserve the hall and keep it as close to what it was when it opened its doors in 1940. “We want to take it back to what it was originally,” McKenzie said. “We want to have cedar siding and a dark brown roof so it looks like shingles.”

built by community volunteers and has been owned and operated by community organizations since its construction.” The hall was purchased by the Willow Point Lions Club in 1986 and since that time has been the venue of choice for weddings, scouts, brownies, political gatherings, church services, dances, and anniversaries. Samson himself recalls his connection to the hall. “My dad and my uncle had a gas station across the street that opened up in the early 1980s,” Samson

Our View

Diehard hockey fans getting frustrated The NHL lockout seems set to go on for weeks, if not months, and there is still a chance that there may be no NHL hockey at all this season. While this costs players a lot of money, it may be costing the game We say: NHL itself in more long-term ways. Surteam owners are veys have indicated that a significant number of NHL ticket buyers are in taking a big risk no rush to go back to the arenas if the lockout is settled. This is particuin this lockout larly true in some U.S. markets, where hockey is the third or fourth most-popular sport in the area.

The economic climate in which this lockout is taking place is much different than it was in 2004-05, when the league lost an entire season to another work stoppage. At that time, economic growth in both Canada and the United States was strong. Good times seemed endless, and sports fans were quite ready to spend money on tickets to games. They were more willing to put up with a labour disruption. In 2012, the U.S. economy remains abysmally weak, after more than four years of job losses and falling real estate prices. Many Americans simply don’t have the disposable income that they had in 2005. If there is no hockey for a year, chances are many of them will forget

about the game for a long time to come. While most Canadian fans are much more likely to be back in their seats when the NHL resumes play, there could be a significant drop in TV viewership. Many fans who watch hockey on TV don’t get a chance to get to NHL games. In markets such as Vancouver and Toronto, it is very hard to get tickets to a game, with many season tickets held by corporations. There are plenty of hockey options available to fans in other leagues. Many of them are seeking out those options. The NHL and its players had better hope fans retain a keen interest in their game. – Black Press

Letters

Horrible treaty signed Prime Minister Stephen Harper, I’m concerned about the Canada-China Investment Treaty. I read with horror the content of the treaty. Sir, again you seems to side-step the democratic rights and obligations of our Parliament. The treaty is a very important document which will have an enormous negative impact on the Canadian economy in the long run. The treaty gives away Canada’s preferred national rights and/or direct ownership of our resources. The agreement will have an indirect impact on the Canadian environment and it will have an direct impact on the rights of individual Canadian through foreign corporate controls if not direct Chinese Government controls. It removes the rights of local, provincial and even the federal government and moves the decision making controls to external panels. I consider this a “Sell out of Canada” orchestrated by you, Sir. Now, Canada will not have only a trade deficit problem with China, we will gives away our profits as well.

SPCA given the thankless task of animal seizure

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb @AlstrT editor@campbellrivermirror.com

The ultimately sad story of the pit bull attack and seizure has generated a lot of comment at www.campbellrivermirror.com. Inevitably it’s become a tussle between the nature vs. nurture camps. Are pit bulls inherently dangerous dogs or are they made that way by their owners? Lots of opinion arguing for either point of view. See a sample of the debate on page A13. Another issue here is the role of the SPCA in this kind of enforcement scenario. I’ve worked with the SPCA for years in my capacity as editor of this paper and think they do a great job, under trying circumstances. They desperately need a new facility. Over to you city council... I get the feeling that our SPCA

branch is most comfortable with the animal saviour role. For example, they’re well connected with young people in our community. Many a youngster in this town raises funds and donate them to the SPCA under their own initiative. So, our local SPCA rescues animals, works tirelessly to find them homes, champions the spay and neuter campaign and cares for the managerie under their roof. Volunteers can walk the dogs to give them their badly needed exercise and socialization as they await adoption. Cats are available for cuddling to keep them happy and comfortable. It’s a caring, sharing shelter for the abandoned and forsaken and the people who do that are the nicest folks

you can imagine. So, it would be a daunting task to confront an angry owner and demand he surrender an animal that has attacked people and dogs in a neighbourhood. But that is called enforcement and I question whether it’s fair to dump that role on a group of people whose focus is on nurturing animals. Two women from the SPCA were sent to apprehend the dog as per a court order. They were accompanied by a male RCMP officer and a male bylaw officer. As the verbal confrontation escalated a sturdy cop in a cruiser arrived, parked his car in full sight of the house and leaned back on it, arms folded with a confident smile. That’s called backup. It was

not unwarranted. Not to put this too facetiously but is this the task our bunny rescuers should be given? One online commenter said Campbell River needs a separate animal control officer. I can’t help but agree. At least have a bylaw enforcement officer whose job is to serve court orders. Of course, it raises the question of perhaps this is the RCMP’s job. Giving this kind of enforcement to a community organization run by a volunteer society seems a tad unfair. Maybe I’m selling the dedicated folks at the SPCA short. Maybe, they believe in the work they do enough to be willing to step in and wrestle animals away from bad situations. But it’s got to be tough to do.

Normal dog behavior is no match for the ultimate canine fighting dog.

Planning for Life Changes What is the purpose of commonly 2X14 disliked Probate? Many people consider probate as an unnecessary PLANNING complication or a nuisance. A common comment from clients FOR isLIFEGurdeep Sidhu that the probate has held up their inheritance for a long-time. Probate is the legal process that ensures that the deceased person’s estate is distributed to the rightful bene¿ciaries under a valid Will. Through Probate the court certi¿es the Will that third parties can rely upon. Without Probate the banks, insurance companies, and Land Titles Of¿ce can’t be sure about the validity of a Will. No one likes to wait for money and deal with procedural delays. But consider this: An individual makes a Will giving a major portion of his/her estate to one child (Child A); at a later date revokes the Will to give his/her estate to all children equally; if child A takes the ¿rst Will to the bank and gets paid then the rightful bene¿ciaries will be left out. A legal action against the bank claiming that the bank paid based on an invalid Will certainly will cause more delays, family dispute, and legal fees than ¿ling the necessary probate documents for court’s review. Trying to beat the probate fees should be at the bottom of your list. Your focus should be preplanning. There are other steps that you need to take to save your estate money and avoid delays. In Campbell River, there is a group of professionals that provides free seminars to educate the public about “planning for life changes”. This article is supplied by Gurdeep Sidhu, CGA. Notary Public. Practicing in Campbell River, BC. Please consult with a professional advisor before taking any action based on information in this article. Gurdeep can be reached at (250) 287-3445

2012 Home Expo How to be ‘safe and sound’ at home When it comes to home improvement, many products promise to save you time and money, but only a rare few can boast that they might actually save your life. Security film is one of those products. Nicole (not her real name) had just broken up with her boyfriend, a man known for his fiery temper. So perhaps she shouldn’t have been surprised when he showed up at her Campbell River home in a fit of rage and attempted to get inside by smashing her window with a baseball bat. He hammered at the frontdoor window, his angry yells growing louder and ever more terrifying. The glass buckled and erupted in cobwebs of splintered glass, but the window did not give way. After more than a minute of pounding, and still unable to gain access to the home, Nicole’s exboyfriend left even more enraged than he’d arrived. Several months earlier, Nicole’s mother had security film installed on the home’s windows, making them nearly impossible to smash and creating an invisible barrier against intruders. “She told me quite frankly that she believes the window film saved her daughter’s life,” says Dave Barlow, who owns Safe and Sound Window Film in Comox. “I tell people all the time about the benefits of window film, but it’s really quite something when you hear such vivid examples from your own community. The

security benefits of this film are truly amazing.” While Barlow is expected to be biased, there’s no arguing with the framed letter that sits above his desk from A.K. Massey, a former constable with the Courtenay RCMP’s Crime Prevention Unit. “Safety and Security Window Film is an excellent crime prevention tool,” it reads. “It reduces the chance of a burglar gaining access to your home via windows and also reduces the risk of injury in circumstances such as vandalism or natural disasters such as earthquakes.” Security window film has long been popular with businesses and for commercial applications, says Barlow. He’s installed the

film on more than 60 schools between Nanaimo and Campbell River, and he notes that the film he installs on Vancouver Island is the same product that protects the priceless treasures of both the Smithsonian and the Louvre. Security film is now gaining popularity in the residential market as well. One explanation is that technology has improved drastically since window film was introduced in the 1950s, so that a single inexpensive film can now offer myriad benefits in addition to security. Today’s films can block UV radiation that causes furnishings and artwork to fade, reduce energy consumption by increasing the insulating effect of windows and provide one-way visibility for additional privacy and security. “There are down sides to installing security film,” warns Barlow. “I had a customer in Fanny Bay who locked herself out her house and so decided to take an axe to the cheapest window. Her window ended up in a sorry state, but she never was able to break in!” For more information, or a free quote, call 250-339-7003 or look for Safe and Sound Window Film at the Campbell River Fall Home Expo, October 26 to 28 at the Campbell River Sportsplex.

Smart Savings – Cabinet Refacing Have you ever wanted to wave a magic wand and give your old kitchen and bathroom a sleek, modern look? Well you can, usually in less than three days and for a lot less than you think. If your kitchen layout is basically fine and the cases structurally sound, you should consider refacing instead of replacing and save yourself a ton of money. For a third of the cost of starting over from scratch, you can transform your kitchen with zero fuss and minimal downtime. Refacing means keeping what’s good and changing only the exterior components – the doors, drawer fronts, side panels and trim. Everything else stays just as it is. From an

Songs for Sebastian Who is Barbossa played at the Paramount with Sue Medley and others in support of a fundraiser for Sebastian Coban on Oct. 16 in an event Andrew Davis (Rockdog) from Jet FM put together. The event raised just over $2000. Picture above is Who is Barbossa (Jacob Storback, Kyell Erickson, Mitchell Roberston, Colin Massie), with Sue Medley and keyboardist John Mang. Sebastian Coban was born May 26, 2012 with a rare medical condition which has lead to four months in the hospital. He has undergone numerous medical procedures since being diagnosed with Dandy walker variant, facial palsy, pharyngeal web and micrognathia. In those four months his parents have had to move twice and both have not worked. This is their first child and although they expected having a child to be costly but with transportation every day to the hospital, food, bills and every other cost that comes with living it has become very expensive. With Sebastian’s return home coming up soon his parents have come to realize that all the equipment may not be covered and they will have medical bills coming our way. Sebastian’s great uncle Jon Storback says the family has tried to do this on their own for so long and now the costs are starting to outweigh the income that is coming in.

HOROSCOPES

CROSSWORD 7x14

CROSSWORD

The week of October 21 – 27, 2012

ARIES There is a lot of confusion in the air, but you won’t go against the flow. Let yourself be guided by your intuition and you will experience a wave of creativity. TAURUS Time is a rare commodity for many of us. Even though you are skilful in managing your own time, you will have to wait a while for some other people. GEMINI You may very well start dreaming of a vacation in the sun now that the cooler weather has arrived. Redoubling your efforts at work might help you be able to afford a little travel treat. CANCER If you are artistic, you will be able to create a masterpiece this week. On the romantic front, you will start a project that will cement your relationship. LEO Keep an active social life if you want to stay close to your friends. The idea of selling or buying a property is tickling your mind. VIRGO Even though you have to devote more time to a project than you’d planned to, in the end you will feel really proud of yourself. Enjoy the sense of having done your duty. LIBRA You are proud of your appearance in general, but buying some new clothes or sprucing yourself up in some other way will raise your self-esteem. SCORPIO If you’re expecting visitors this week, you will be tempted to clean the house thoroughly. This won’t be a bad thing, as you will get rid of a lot of clutter by throwing out some useless things. SAGITTARIUS Your comings and goings will be rife with complications this week. You are likely to experience some frustration in communicating with people; perhaps you will have to wait a long time for someone to return your call. CAPRICORN You might be called on to put in a few hours of overtime at work. You are looking forward to your next paycheque, even though your new schedule doesn’t please your loved ones. AQUARIUS You experience some disappointment when starting a new job or a large-scale project. With a bit of patience and some serious discussions you’ll be pleased with the results. PISCES After working diligently at the office you need to take a break. Try to think about yourself now. An outing or even a short trip will help you to recharge your batteries.

The Sportsplex turns pro-girl on Thursday with a day full of girls-only activities.

Pro D day turns into Pro G day “No boys allowed” as girls are in charge at the Sportsplex on the next Pro D day. On Thursday, Nov. 1, the Sportsplex will be filled with girls in grades 4 and 5 as the ever-popular girls-only Pro G Day program takes over the facility from noon to 3 p.m. This fun-filled threehour program will get girls dancing, playing sports, enjoying games and competing in challenges. They can choose from activities taking place in two different rooms and the two gyms throughout the afternoon. Some of the best instructors in Campbell River will lead the girls in Irish dancing, yoga, racquet sports and more. This includes sessions led

by coaches from Crush Volleyball and the Campbell River Soccer Association. When they need a break, there’ll be a room for craft projects or sitting back and being transformed by

the professionals at Detailed Face Painting. Pro G Day gets the Sportsplex hopping. Last year, 75 girls participated, and this year we are expecting even more. The $7 entry fee gets them access to all

the activities, drinks and lunch. To register, all you have to do is show up on the day and be ready for fun. For more information contact the Sportsplex at 250923-7911.

Abandoned kitten needs help Quadra Cat Rescue is looking for a temporary foster home for a young kitten that was found zipped up in a tote bag and abandoned at a residence on Quadra Island. The kitten was quite ill but has rallied in the last few days since being rescued and has received veterinary care. The kitten is on a course of antibiotics and will need to receive these medications daily. They are looking for a foster person who will be able to give oral antibiotic liquid and eye ointment twice a day, and wash around the kitten’s eyes. It would be ideal if the foster home was a cat-less household or one where pets’ vaccines are up to date. If you are able to provide temporaray foster care for this kitten who has had a rough start, contact Quadra Cat Rescue at 285-CATS (2287) or e-mail quadracatrescue@yahoo.com

Enrich Someone’s Life

3x3

Enrich the life of an adult learner, become a tutor. The experience will change your life! Unfortunately, one in four British Columbians cannot read this sentence. More than half of working age people in BC have difficulty reading or writing, which makes it difficult for them to be a part of our changing economy. Be a part of the solution! The CR Literacy Association has CR LITERACY students who need tutors. Volunteer tutors work one-on-one with adults and youth wanting to improve their English skills. Everyone is welcome! More tutors are needed for these programs. Adult Literacy tutors work with learners whose skills in reading, writing, and math are at a low level. ESL tutors work with youth and adults who are learning English as their second language, (reading, writing, and pronunciation). The above programs are free of charge, thanks to funding from the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. Training for volunteer tutors will be held in November 2012. If you are interested in becoming a tutor for either program phone 250 923 1275 or email Julina Spetch at info@literacyforall.ca for more information.

A howling good time at the bowling centre Following last year’s “howling” success, the Centre for Spiritual Living is once again sponsoring the second annual Halloween bowl-a-thon at the Campbell River Bowling Centre Saturday, Oct. 27 from 3:308:30 p.m. Even if you haven’t bowled for years, you can’t pass up this opportunity to have fun and win prizes. Open to participants of all ages, teams are currently for ming, and once registered they collect pledges from friends, family, and colleagues. A special prize will go to the bowler who collects the largest amount in pledges, and this year that winner will go home with a brand new iPad. Many other prizes, which have been generously donated by Campbell River businesses will be

awarded for best costume, best score and funniest bowler. Each team of four will bowl three fivepin and three ten-pin games. The evening also features great food, with vegetarian options available, music, and lots of free flowing fun. There will also be a 50/50 draw to top off the evening. All proceeds raised at the bowl-a-thon are to benefit the Centre for Spiritual Living in Campbell River as it continues to teach spiritual tools that enhance people’s lives and help make the world a better place. For more information, re gistration forms, and pictures of last year’s event, go to www.CRbowlathon.ca and click on the Team Registration Page. Registration forms are also available at

Campbell River Living Grandmothers Group seeks support

The 90-plus club

On Thursday, Nov. 1, Canadian grandmothers and “grand-others” will be gathering across the country to send a united message to Parliament Hill: pass Bill C-398. The Campbell River Grandmothers Advocacy Network, is urging community groups and individuals to join them at Spirit Square to participate in this national event. Bill C-398 is a humanitarian bill designed to make affordable generic versions of essential medicines available to the world’s poor. Canada’s grandmothers care deeply about Bill C -398 because they are convinced it can save thousands of lives.

A Gay 90’s Party was held at Forde House recently to recognize and honor those residents who were 90 years or better this year. Standing from left to right are: Charlotte Allerton, 97; Lorna Pennock, 93; Frank Nosky, 92; Gordon Lewis, 90; James Tirebuck, 90; Bill Buote, 96; and Dorothy Goodwin, 96. Missing from the photo is David Blackburn, 91. That is a total of 740 years of wisdom, history, stories, and plain old fashioned fun.

The youth were amazing, digging with diligence and planting with care.

The youth met several Fridays prior, to plan and organize this service. The trees and plants that they planted were from a Greenways Land Trust Project.

Marty coached for ‘digger’s gold’ BRIAN KIERAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Looking back on 14 years of volunteer high school football coaching Martin Juanzemis says it all boils down to prowling the sidelines in search of “digger’s gold.” “I guess you could say I was passionate and dedicated,” Juanzemis reflects. “I tried to instill the belief in my players that in the end you do not have to necessarily be the best or most gifted as long as you are willing to outwork the other guy. Then, more often than not, you will be successful.” The for mer SFU Clansmen offensive linesman says: “Many years ago, I happened to have a game of squash against Rick Klassen of the BC Lions. After a hard fought point, Rick said two words “diggers gold.” Those two words and who they came from taught me a lot.” I ro n i c a l ly, a f t e r Juanzemis started coaching the Timberline Wolves he found himself digging for something not quite as glamorous as a glimmer of gold in a rising gridiron star. He was literally digging for manure. In 1998, when Juanz emis joined the coaching staff the team was short of everything ... pads, sleds, even a score clock.

Former Timberline Wolves football coach Martin Juanzemis patrols the sidelines with playbook in hand. Juanzemis will be honoured for his years of service at Saturday’s football game on the Timberline field.

Mirror reporter Paul Rudan, who coached alongside Juanzemis

for several years, recalls: “Martin came up with the idea of

selling folks manure for their gardens. It was way better than

selling them something they didn’t need like chocolate covered

7x2.5 7x2.5

OCEAN MOUNTAIN YOGA

almonds and the team made a lot of money.” The manure was bagged at the former UBC experimental farm in Oyster River and in one year netted the team about $12,000. Rudan remembers Coach Martin as a dedicated volunteer who “spent countless hours working behind the scenes developing plays, attending meetings ... doing stuff no one saw.” Timberline Principal Kevin Harrison says: “We all appreciate Martin’s passion for the game and the team. Several of his players went on to senior levels of football in university and college with scholarships. I appreciate how he was able to work with me to leverage football as a way of getting the boys to keep their grades up.” That gets a chuckle out of Juanzemis. “I spent more time in the principal’s office as a coach than I ever did as a student,” he says. On Juanz emis’ watch the team did very well. In 2002 it played in the Triple A semifinals against Vancouver College in BC Place Stadium and in 2009 the Wolves won the Tier Two Championship against Burnaby’s Moscrop Secondary even though there were barely enough players to field a full squad. “I’m proud of the

job I and the other coaches did bringing the program to where it was. We built a pretty good program. I liked to watch what football offered those kids in the way of a life experience. “We weren’t just teaching kids to play football, we were teaching them how to be team players and how to make decisions to get further on in their lives as they progressed beyond football into the real world,” Juanzemis says. When the Wolves play at home next on Oct. 27 there will be a half time ceremony to recognize Juanzemis and his coaching legacy. One of the mementos that will be presented to the retired coach will be a framed letter from Farhan Lalji, president of the B.C. Secondary School Football Association. Lalji’s letter states: “Thanks for the time you have committed to making our sport grow in Campbell River. Running a football program is not easy ... in a smaller re gion where the coaching and financial pool is often thin. But it is in these areas where football and the life lessons that come from it are more needed. You have impacted many lives and had plenty of successes on the field and off. Thanks for your passion and commitment.”

Drive Smart BC How to Build a Highway The more that I learn about how to con2X14 struct one of BC’s highways, the more I see how complicated that job really is. One would think that you decide where to go, level off a pathway, build a few bridges, throw down some pavement, put up a few signs and we’re good to go. I don’t know if a person couldTYEE find a better way to underCHEV state the task than my last sentence!

One of the standards organizations behind the scenes is the Canadian Institute of Transportation Engineers (CITE). The group is one of many from more than 70 countries who are responsible for the safe and efficient movement of people and goods on streets, highways and transit systems. The CITE web site also contains publications ranging from a quarterly newsletter to a design manual for bicycle facilities. The next time you are on the road and find yourself saying “I wonder why...” it might be possible to find the answer in one of these resources.

Includes: Dresser, mirror, chest, night table, headboard, footboard & rails.

As a driver, we probably give some thought to why an intersection is built the way it is, how do decide on the marking of a speed zone or what the rules might be for installing median barriers. The Engineering Branch Publications page of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s web site is a virtual library of information. There are PDF documents explaining standards from environmental concerns though to pedestrian crossings and traffic light controller operation. If you are an engineer at heart, you will be reading for a long time here.

The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic law enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www.drivesmartbc.ca.
