regory Thomas Howlett, 52, of Duncan has been identi¿ed as the person killed Wednesday when his pickup truck’s windshield was hit by a rock tossed by a logging rig, near Skutz Falls turnoff along Highway 18. Police are looking for the loggingtruck driver whose rig — headed in the opposite direction of Howlett’s pickup at around 9:30 a.m. — may

have thrown the rock that became a big, deadly bullet. “The piece of rock that went through his windshield, and hit him, was about the size of a standard building brick,” Barbara McLintock of the B.C. Coroners Service said of the tragedy about 500 metres west of Skutz Falls Road. “This was truly a totally freak accident.” That rock was likely clinging to the load of logs when it shook loose from one of two eastbound rigs, headed toward Duncan on Highway 18, she explained.

Witness reports to the RCMP indicate the deadly rock fell from the ¿rst of the two logging trucks. The rock bounced off the road, then entered the driver’s side windshield of Howlett’s GMC pickup going west toward Lake Cowichan. Coroner Honey Forbes said Howlett’s shocked, yet uninjured wife somehow managed to gain control of the pickup after Howlett was hit through the shattered windshield. “She did an unbelievable job of gaining control of that vehicle and stopping it.” more on A5

The most common genetic disorder affecting Canadians is hereditary hemochromatosis. It is caused by a defect in the metabolism of iron that leads to iron overload in vital organs and tissues which can lead to damage. Early diagnosis is important and treatment is 100% effective consisting of the removal of some blood periodically until iron levels return to normal.

Cowichan River running without inÅuence of the weir The Cowichan River is flowing freely. A joint agreement to increase water flows in the Cowichan River has resulted in the opening of the Cowichan Lake weir which regulates water flow out of the lake. From Oct. 27 to 31, Catalyst Paper progressively opened the four control

gates and the boat lock structure resulting in increased flow in the Cowichan River, according to a Catalyst press release. Decisions of this nature are arrived at jointly and with input from many stakeholders to ensure the protection of the fish and fish habitat. The counting fence

near Duncan was removed on Oct. 25. The increased water flows combined with natural storm events can create stronger currents and undertows. The province urged the public, especially boaters and swimmers, to use extra caution on the Cowichan River.

Local ‘for sale’ ad targeted by international cheque fraud RCMP seem disinterested: Owner selling light table for $1,000 receives fake cheque for $4,500, plus request to send the balance to France Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

L

ocal lensman Kris Kann outwitted Cowichan’s latest scam, whereby he would have become a fraudster himself. It all started in mid-October when the co-owner of Duncan’s Peacock Photo wanted to sell an expensive light table for $1,000. “I looked on the net and saw it’s worth $5,000 new. I put it on Used Victoria and Used Cowichan for $1,000. “Within a day, we got someone emailing, asking ‘What’s your ¿nal price?’ We said $1,000 plus shipping. “Then we got an email through Yahoo saying ‘Yes’ and ‘We’ll send you the money,’” he said of the initial response on Oct. 15. A week later, Kann had received no dough and emailed the buyer. “They said ‘Be patient, you should get it any day.’” On Oct. 31, Kann received a $4,500 cheque drawn on Coast Capital Savings Credit Union’s Broadmoor branch in Richmond. But Kann smelled a rat. “It had explicit instructions saying ‘Please take out the money we owe you and send the balance, through Western Union, to an address in Paris, France.’” That $3,500 was to be sent to a Steve Allen in Paris. “I thought it stunk,” Kann said of the crooks

Peacock Photo co-owner Kris Kann with the light table he’s selling, and the buyer’s bogus cheque that’s allegedly part of a global scam. playing on greed or naivete. “We thought ‘Why was he sending us $4,500 for a $1,000 item?’” So Kann headed to Duncan’s Bank of Nova Scotia, and talked to manager David Strong. “They checked the transit number for the Coast Capital in Richmond and the number

The Cowichan RCMP respond “(In this case) there had been no fraud, as no transaction had happened. This is not a new scam, and these sorts of incidents are periodically reported to the detachment. The front counter person at the detachment willingly took the person’s name and the details, and it was added to a file at that time. It was reported for information, and the details recorded. “As explained at the time it was reported, this is an old scheme, that has been in use, and reported extensively in the media for many years. “Even in a case where this type of fraud has been committed, there are many difficulties in proceeding with the investigation. The identity of the sender is almost never known, and even if their ip address can be obtained, proving the person who was at the computer at the time the message was sent is rarely possible. Secondly, the ownership or origin of the cheque is very difficult to prove. The

was way off. “Then we went to Coast Capital in Duncan. They immediately got on the computer, and in two minutes they said ‘It’s a fraud.’” Next, Kann visited the North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP, but met disappointing interest about the scam.

destined receiver of the excess funds was an overseas organization, and beyond the scope of the RCMP’s jurisdiction. In cases where there is an attempted fraud, no loss of material goods, the case is not serious enough to involve the service of Interpol in the matter. Indeed, the use of resources in a case where there is little likelihood of even proceeding with a charge, particularly in a situation where there was no fraud, is not a responsible position. “It is important to recognize that the person who reported it to the RCMP did the right thing. They thought something was not right, and protected themselves by checking on the validity of the cheque. They did not lose anything of value, and they reported it to the police. Although in this case it did not go any further, it is important that the police know about these incidents. Through a series of reported events, sometimes they can be linked and further investigation done. It is also important to know what is happening in the community, to ensure we can send out relevant warnings about new scams and schemes.

— Cpl. Jon Stuart, NCO, Crime Prevention Unit, North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP

Peter W. Rusland

“The RCMP couldn’t have cared less. They didn’t even want to see the cheque, and the man at reception said ‘This happens all the time.’ “He was polite, but it was a blow off,” Kann said. “I had to force him to take my name and address, and I haven’t heard anything since.” The plain-clothes attendant told Kann he’d bbe committing a crime by cashing the bogus ccheque. “I was a little disappointed because I ¿gured we’d get a call from police inquiring about w more information for a case ¿le, in case other m ppeople called the police — there might be ssomeone else getting scammed.” Local Mounties were unavailable for comment by press time Monday. m Meanwhile, the fraudsters, using the name JJustin Bruce, persisted — despite being told by Kann that he’d forwarded the fake cheque to K tthe RCMP. “We got an email the next day asking if we ggot our money. I replied ‘We got your cheque, aand turned it over to the RCMP.’ The next day tthey asked if we’d cashed the cheque yet.” The moral? “Be careful who buys your produuct on line,” warned Kann.

The logging-truck driver did not stop at the scene. It’s likely, police say, that rig’s driver was unaware the accident happened. Lake Cowichan RCMP, RCMP South Island Traf¿c Services, and the Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement team were working to

con¿rm the identify of the logging truck, and driver involved. The identity of the second logging-truck driver was also unknown. Police are asking for public assistance in identifying the logging truck driver. Call the South Island Traf¿c Services at 250-416-0352.

Double Buck Day

Cowichan Bay: DFO allows rare two-day opening, locals worry about coho bycatch Peter W. Rusland

Saturday, May Saturday, 12/12 November 17 9:30am-5:30pm

News Leader Pictorial

A

bout 80 ¿shing boats hauled in chum salmon during this week’s two-day ¿shery outside Cowichan Bay. But that Nov. 6 and 7 opening worried Canada’s former environment minister. David Anderson wondered how dwindling coho stocks would be impacted by the chum ¿shery allowing some 21,000 ¿sh to be taken. “I’m less concerned about the chum stocks than the coho,” he told the News Leader Pictorial of the closed coho ¿shery. “I don’t quite understand how they have such precise ¿gures.” Andrew Thomson of federal Fisheries said the chum harvest happened after the escapement target of 160,000 chum was reached — the number of chum the feds want to return for spawning. Counting was helped by the river’s ¿sh fence, plus traditional numbers and available habitat.

10 am - 5 pm

One Day Only… …your trading bucks are worth twice their face value Andrew Leong

Cowichan Bay was the site of a two-day chum opening this week — a rare event for the area in recent years. “We met our target for chum, and there’s an abundance in the channel.” Thomson called the 21,000 chum “excess ¿sh”, with the opening still allowing a sustainable chum ¿shery under federal management practices. That chum take, he said, was “sculpted’’ around the valley’s coho stocks. “Seiners must release coho,” he said, noting about 20 seine boats and 60 gill-net crafts had come for chum. “We want to avoid any potential

impact on coho,” Thomson said. But Anderson, a Cowichan Stewardship Council member, urged caution about further impacts on coho stocks. “Coho returns in some island rivers have been good, but we need to build all stocks in the Cowichan River, particularly because coho have seen fragile stocks in some years.” About 1,000 chinook died last month after a dry Cowichan River prevented upstream spawning during their regular run.

Remembering a feeling worth experiencing Nov. 11: Good reasons to attend ceremony

M

aybe it’s the blood-red poppies. Or the stirring Scottish bagpipe music. Or the far-away gaze of veterans in blue blazers, loaded with colorful medals, that brings a tickle of patriotic sadness to one’s nose before eyes well with tears. Most of all, Remembrance Day is a feeling. It’s shared by folks of all ages standing sombrely in respect at the hundreds of war cenotaphs strung across Canada every Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. It’s understandable why veterans cry; quietly and vividly remembering buddies killed in some forgotten town or Event a farm ¿eld more than 65 years ago — or just ¿ve years ago. chance to They likely can’t help picturing think about smokes or jokes they shared, maybe for years before that pal was brutally cut war down by a bullet, shrapnel, a landmine, by accident — or, God forbid, by friendly ¿re. But surely it’s our collective unconsciousness of war’s horrors that compels even kids in Boy Cubs, Girl Guides, Beavers — and maybe some toddlers — to be still during The Last Post. Sour notes don’t even register. A shared feeling of melancholy curiously grabs hold as we withdraw, wondering how a nearby veteran acted under ¿re, clutching dirt in a dark foxhole; how a relative might have died; and how it might have been us in that terrifying gun¿ght or bombing, if not for the angel of time. Then the minute’s silence gives us time to ponder why wars are still necessary after centuries of death. Questions surface on Remembrance Day — along with ways humanity could ¿nally evolve past war to a brave, new world based on lasting peace. Buy a poppy. Head to the nearest cenotaph on Sunday at around 10 a.m. By that sacred 11th hour, you’ll have plenty to think about — and to be thankful for.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: Cowichan Bay chum Äshery The case against

The case for Fishing may not mean what it once did to this area, but it is still a viable industry for the region. The government monitors the salmon numbers carefully to ensure things remain that way. And the numbers show the chum population can sustain the type of opening Cowichan Bay just experienced. Why shouldn’t it proceed?

The Cowichan area fishery — like the entire Vancouver Island area fishery has been decimated by years of overfishing. If we ever want the species to bounce back from the precarious edge it is on, a time has to come where we celebrate a higher-than-normal run by leaving it alone in the hopes it will spawn more of the same. Can’t we put our greed aside?

Smart Meter manipulation happening across B.C. Tom Fletcher Black Press

T

wo very different scenes unfolded at opposite ends of the province last week. In the remote northwest corner of B.C., the ¿rst power line towers started going up to connect Highway 37 communities to the BC Hydro grid. The Nisga’a, Tahltan and other Aboriginal communities will soon have reliable power, as well as much-needed training and jobs during clearing and construction. Meanwhile, down on the Gulf Islands, the most hysterical, dishonest campaign against smart meters I’ve heard of so far went into high gear. I’ve obtained a mass email from the head antismart meter organizer on Salt Spring Island that shows the mentality at work here. (Corix is the contractor that has installed more than a million meters and has approached the Gulf Islands with trepidation, the last area of B.C. to be done.) “Corix is attacking with 30 trucks on Mon. the

22nd,” Chris Anderson wrote in October. “Poelpe [sic] are advised NOT to attend the Victoria pipeline rally but instead help defend agianst [sic] spymeter installations in their neighbourhoods.” Anderson’s self-appointed supporters fanned out across the island, attempting to turn away installers on the false assumption everyone has fallen for their crackpot fear campaign. They managed to stop 12 per cent of the installations. Coincidentally, Anderson has been doing a brisk business selling $35 meter locks to gullible Salt Spring Islanders in recent months. They don’t work, and you’re not allowed to lock BC Hydro property anyway. Others have been sold of¿ciallooking “no smart meter” signs that don’t identify the customer, so they don’t work, either. As for the term “spymeter,” I’ve reported on the weird theories spread by Bill Vander Zalm in a video interview, where he claims smart meters are part of a global surveillance system that can even tell what you’re cooking. Vander Zalm has been outdone by one Brian Thiesen, who styles himself as the “chairman” of “Interior Smart Meter

BC VIEWS

Awareness.” In September, the Merritt Herald reported on Theisen’s presentation to 20 unwary people in a church basement. He claimed wireless meters not only provide video surveillance of your house, they are also responsible for “dying bees” and “defective sperm and eggs” as well as disease and ¿res. Thiesen even claimed radiofrequency signals can “pull your PIN number directly out of your head.” Is there no limit to the nonsense some people will fall for? Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis co-authored a study that shows residential ¿res have decreased with the advent of smart meters. Which brings me to the ugliest opposition to this modernization, the criminal element. Here in North America’s marijuana mecca, installers have encountered many meter bypasses, wired up to steal hydro and conceal high consumption for grow-ops. In addition to being illegal, they are a ¿re hazard that is removed when discovered.

Installers also ¿nd more sophisticated cases of hydro theft. Removing the mechanical meter reveals a hole cut in the back of the case, so the dials can be turned back to hide a grow-op’s power consumption. No wonder some people want to lock them down. Of course, all of this is defeated by a smart grid system, so the growers and other crooks are angry. A BC Hydro of¿cial told me about one case where a user was told he had a bypass, and that it was being removed. His bill went from next to nothing to a reasonable level. The customer complained to the media, falsely inÀating the amount of his bill and blaming an inaccurate smart meter. Tom Fletcher is the legislative reporter for Black Press.

Keep your head down and don’t pose for the camera

Dear editor On page A9 of the Oct. 9 News Leader Picorial there is a picture of the earthquake drill at the Cowichan library on Oct 18. I am curious why you showed a picture of how not to duck and cover under a desk. Surely, there was someone doing it properly there somewhere. Although the photo-op is not as good when doing it right, I still think it would be a better picture. The idea is to have the table protect you when things fall from above. But in the event something heavy falls, the table may collapse. School students are instructed to have their head down, so the table will fall onto their shoulders and back, rather than the top of their head. I hope someone who has not had drills in school does not mistake this picture for the correct method. Norm Worthy

New roundabout in Lake Cowichan to smooth trafÄc Åow, curb accidents Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

A

new roundabout at Lake Cowichan’s intersection of South Shore Road and North Shore Road has Mayor Ross Forrest smiling. Especially because Victoria will pay half the cost of the ring, priced between $500,000 and $1 million. “There have been accidents there, but nothing fatal. “Safety-wise, convenience-wise it’s a bad intersection. This was our main priority spot; ¿rst on our list,” he said of the roundabout. Exact costs will surface with design completion. “We’ve had discussions with (transportation ministry) for quite a while,” said Forrest, noting pedestrian safety too. “Back as far as 2005, a study was done showing it warranted an upgrade there. Traf¿c has also increased in town in the past few years.” That project will also see the province pay $1.8 million to resurface about three kilometres of South Shore Road between Youbou Road and Peterson Road. Twinning resurfacing work with

TrafÄc Åows through the roundabout on Drinkwater Road last summer shortly after it was opened. Lake Cowichan is next in line for one of the ubiquitous trafÄc circles. roundabout construction will reduce traf¿c snarls and save money, a ministry release states. Work on both projects is to begin in the spring, and is expected to ¿nish in the summer. This work follows the streetscaping improvements done by the Town of Lake Cowichan, as part of its Downtown Revitalization plan. Design and engineering plans for the roundabout are underway, with

HEATH, Wilfred Raymond June 26, 1918 – November 2, 2012 Died peacefully in the company of loved ones. He is survived by Betty, his loving wife of 63 years; his daughter, Mary; his son, Bill (Val); 5 grandchildren, Amanda (Rob), Eric (Natalie), Frances (Bruno), Mike and Dan; his great granddaughter, Ava; and many nephews and nieces. Born in Anyox, B.C., Wilf grew up in the Marpole area of Vancouver. After highschool, we went to sea in the Merchant Marines. When WWII began, he joined the Royal Canadian Navy and served on several ships on convoy patrol in the Battle of the Atlantic. After the war, he built upon his engine room experience with a career in steam engineering at coastal mills in B.C., including the Ocean Falls pulpmill and the Rayonier sawmill at Honeymoon Bay. Wilf and family moved to Maple Bay in 1957 to the large house that they would own for 53 years. Wilf liked to grow vegetables, go ďŹ shing and always seem to have a project underway, from renovations to perfecting his game of pool. He loved to tell jokes and right to the end was able to make people laugh with his artful one-liners. The family thanks the staff at Sunridge Place for their care and support for his last two years. A celebration of his life will be held at 1:00PM Saturday November 10th at the clubhouse at 111 McKinstry Road, Duncan.

JONES, Barbara Beatrice It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of longtime Shawnigan Lake Resident, Barb Jones, on November 4, 2012, at the age of 90, in Cowichan District Hospital. Barb was born in Kamloops, August 4, 1922 to Jeff and Winnie Morgan. Her family ďŹ rst moved to Victoria, then later to Cherry Point where she attended Bench School with her two sisters. She left school to work on the Malahat doing housekeeping for Harry and Marie Jones and later married their son H.A. Jones (Bill) in 1943. Mum and Dad moved to Shawnigan where they lived in the village until they built their new home across the lake. Barb loved her daily coffee with the locals, attending her home and garden, and the fun times spent with family and their many friends. Survived by her son Rex (Janice) Jones of Shawnigan Lake, and their children Shannon and Trevor Jones, daughter Marg (Rob) Armour of Duncan and their daughter Cindy (Mark) Bryson and great-grandchildren Tyson and Brody Black, Morgan and Devon Bryson, plus many nieces and nephews. The past few years she enjoyed living at Alpenrose Manor in Duncan, under the care of the Loftus family. Although she endured many health challenges in the last few years, she remained a bright and cheery little lady who loved to share her knowledge of earlier times. Mum will be laid to rest in the Shawnigan Lake Cemetery next to Dad, and they will remain “Together Foreverâ€?. As per wishes, there will be no funeral and owers are gratefully declined. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Cowichan sides slip past Nanaimo Don Bodger

S

aturday games at the Cowichan Rugby Club were de¿nitely a soggy experience. Both the Cowichan senior women and First Division men’s teams played in miserable conditions against Nanaimo, but made it all worthwhile by emerging with narrow victories. The women went ¿rst and Cowichan captain Sherry Spence noted it was a wet day, but a great day. Nanaimo had beaten Cowichan handily in September so a 5-0 result was sweet revenge. “It was a defensive game all-around,’’ noted Spence. Fullback Stacey Collison made one try-saving tackle. Otherwise, centres Audrey Park and Nenagh McCulloch couldn’t be beaten. “Nothing went to wide without it being dropped by both teams due to the slippery conditions,’’ noted Spence. That meant a busy time for the scrum. Lenneke Vinoly played a great game at hooker and Caity McCulloch’s pass from the back of a ruck ended up getting crashed over the line by Katie McKinty for the lone try. Owen Wood kicked a penalty at the ¿nal whistle, his second of the game, to give the Cowichan men a 6-3 win. “It was a nasty day,’’ said Cowichan coach Ian Murray. “We got ¿red up for the game. They came out tackling really well and it showed.’’

The Work Crew “Out and About” Story by: Daniel Cairns

I FCC Drive Away Hunger

t has been a busy and productive summer for the “Out and About” group of clients who have been working so diligently to keep the Clements Centre properties clean. Our group has taken charge of harvesting the gardens up at Ryall Road. We have been putting together salad bags for sale which has included several types of lettuce, kale, cabbage, all grown in the gardens by our clients. We harvested the produce, washed it and packaged it for sale.

As well as the produce, our group has produced stunning bouquets that have combined greenery from the back of the Clements Centre to be paired with fresh cut flowers grown up at our gardens. The addition of prepackaged herbs from our garden has made our harvesting days a highly anticipated part of the week with almost all of our products selling out within a few hours, and leaving people wanting more. All of these great home grown products have been for sale in the Clements Centre foyer throughout the summer. The proceeds from these sales have gone directly back into programming.

Change Starts Here

Thanks for filling plates across Canada Thanks to the generosity of our partners and community volunteers, there are fewer empty plates this fall. You helped raise 1.4 million pounds of food and over $760,000 for food banks across the country.

Greenough pays a return visit to Foxstone Stable for jumping clinic

Got a sports story? email sports@cowichannewsleader.com phone 250-746-4471

SPORTS WATCH

Gail Greenough is returning to Foxstone Stable to teach Vancouver Island riders advanced jumping skills. The Saturday and Sunday clinic hosts North America’s only World champion at the Equestrian Games. Greenough, 52, remains the only woman and the youngest to win the

prestigious show jumping title. She was also the first rider to have no faults in the World Show Jumping Championships. Greenough was champion in 1986 at Aachen, Germany, riding a horse named Mr. T (Hann). In 1990, Greenough was made a member of the Order of Canada.

Riders of all ages have the privilege to learn from Canada’s best. Equestrian enthusiasts can audit the clinic from a warm viewing lounge with sound. For more information, call Foxstone Stable at 250-748-8577. — Don Bodger

UBC trio embraces national championship repeat Undefeated season: Cowichan players reflect on a marvellous achievement Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

iranda Mann and Caitlin Evans are three-for-four and Katrina Waldron two-for-two in Canadian Interuniversity Sport national ¿eld hockey championships. The Cowichan products playing at UBC enjoyed sweet success again during the nationals in Toronto. All three played key roles in UBC’s march to a successful title defence and third in the last four years. UBC survived a scare in its opening game when Mann scored with no time left on the clock to salvage a 1-1 tie against Toronto. That saved a record-setting undefeated season for UBC and set the tone for the tournament. “Toward the end there, we had a lot of pressure,’’ said Mann. “It was nice to get that goal in the last few seconds. “For the tournament, it could have changed something with standings and everything else.’’ UBC went on to defeat Victoria 4-0, Guelph 5-0, Western 3-1 and Toronto 3-0 in a rematch in the ¿nal. Waldron was the UBC player of the game

against Guelph. It took a while for UBC to adjust to the ¿eld turf in Toronto compared to the water-based surface it’s accustomed to. Once the adjustment process kicked in, there was no stopping the team. “It was pretty hard to adjust to just in terms of the ball speed,’’ said Waldron. “A lot of girls were slipping all over the place.’’ “I think we dribbled in the ¿rst game a bit too much maybe,’’ said Evans, who was a standout throughout the tournament. Winning the title again required a total team effort. “Every year is a different team,’’ said Evans, “really, really exciting. “I think we all just had a lot of heart

for the whole tournament. We all really wanted it. We really needed to base it on team skills. We just had to make sure when we had our opportunities, we capitalized on our opportunities.’’ “I really think we just came together as a team,’’ offered Waldron. “Even in our pre-game, I think we had a really good team dynamic this year.’’ “It’s a real cool feeling,’’ added Mann. “There’s a few girls on the team we’ve played together from the start.’’ Mann and Evans have one season each of eligibility left. Waldron has a chance to rack up three more titles. “I want ¿ve-for-¿ve,’’ said Waldron. “It would be awesome if Kat can one-up us on this,’’ said Mann.

Young DCS players rise to the challenge Pressed into duty: Injury to Chantal Bouchard forces coach Mary Joan Visscher to shuffle the deck and it works out Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

D Andrew Leong

Hair-raising experience results for Duncan Christian School’s Olivia Bakker as she comes to the net guarded by Kirsten Purslow of Ladysmith.

uncan Christian School senior girls’ volleyball team coach Mary Joan Visscher didn’t know what the effects would be of a potential season-ending injury to Chantal Bouchard. A roster already thin in numbers was reduced to seven with the injury to Bouchard, who still hopes to be back in time for the island A playoffs. In the meantime, Visscher found the answer to a potential crisis for the team during the DCS senior girls’ invitational. Young players Brenna Bazinet and Danielle Groenendijk, who are only in Grade 9 and 8, respectively, have been like saviours.

“Everyone else knows their roles,’’ said Visscher. “These are two girls I’ve put in to play consistently and they have stepped up. You, as a team, have to learn to adjust to that and they did.’’ DCS placed third at its own tournament last Friday and Saturday in a tough ¿eld of 16 teams. “I’m so excited with each of the players, but speci¿cally these two,’’ said Visscher. “They’ve taken instruction well and they’ve absorbed everything I’ve wanted them to do. “Without them we obviously wouldn’t be able to play and de¿nitely we wouldn’t be as strong as we would be.’’ DCS won Pool B, defeating Queen Margaret’s 25-12, 25-19; Lions Gate 25-9, 25-18; and Ladysmith 25-15, 25-11.

The streak continued in the championship round as DCS beat Gulf Islands 25-22, 22-25, 15-6. The streak ended when DCS lost 23-25, 12-25 to Wellington but then the team bounced back to take third by virtue of a 25-14, 22-25, 15-11 decision over Campbell River Christian. Langley Christian won the championship by sweeping Wellington 25-19, 25-13 in Saturday’s ¿nal. Frances Kelsey ¿nished ¿fth, Cowichan seventh and QMS eighth. Tournament all-stars included: Olivia Bakker of DCS, Agnes Esser of Kelsey, Carly Dirom of Cowichan and Nao Tada of QMS. DCS heads to Campbell River next week for the island tournament. “Our goal is to just focus on (No.) 1 and play consistently,’’ said Visscher.

et weather evened the playing ¿eld and allowed the Cowichan Midget Bulldogs to slip by the White Rock South Surrey Titans, one of the top teams in the Vancouver Mainland Football League. The Bulldogs vaulted ahead 16-6 at halftime and padded the lead in the darkness and rain of the second half Sunday at McAdam Park for a 29-6 win, securing fourth place with a 7-3 record — the highest ranking ever for the midgets. The Cowichan offence pounced on the Titans early when Blake Torok-Both cut outside after a block from Eric Maslen and went 61 yards for a touchdown. Cowichan them hemmed the Titans in their own end and the visitors conceded a safety touch to get better ¿eld position. White Rock South Surrey fumbled the ball on consecutive Cowichan punts, recovered by Eric Williams and Drayson Price. Cowichan took the ball to the eight-yard line the second time on a major penalty, leading to a one-yard plunge at the goal line for a TD by quarterback Brendan Gowanlock. The Titans ran a trick play on a punt return late in the half that went for a 60-yard TD, but it was called back on a holding penalty. However, the Titans did get into the end zone on the last play of the half on a long run. The rain poured down in the second half, making conditions dif¿cult for both teams. Cowichan got down to the three-yard line again and kept pounding away on three attempts before getting a fresh set of downs on a penalty. Torok-Both ¿nally scored the TD. Gowanlock made a quick pass to a streaking Williams for a 45-yard TD to complete the scoring and Gowanlock kicked the extra point. The Cowichan Bantam Bulldogs lost 29-13 in a preceding game to the South Delta Rams and ¿nished the regular

The Peewee Bulldogs played in the island championship game and gave it everything they had in a 32-6 loss to the Victoria Outlaws. “It all came down to a numbers game with the Outlaws having a team of 25 versus our squad of 13, and when you can sub players in every play it makes a huge difference,’’ noted Cowichan coach Devon Lawrence. Bailey MacKenzie ran the ball 65 yards for Cowichan on the opening series, only to be brought down on the 10-yard line. The defence didn’t make it easy on the Outlaws on the turnover, with Carter Price making multiple tackles. Price also put the lone TD on the board for Cowichan in the second quarter on an incredible 50-yard run. The Junior Bantam Bulldogs ¿nished the regular season with a 26-0 win over the Nanaimo Lions to claim second place and home-¿eld advantage for the ¿rst round of the playoffs. The Bulldogs’ defence allowed less than eight points in each of its seven wins, noted coach Trent Jones. Damian McCuaig-Jones caught a 30-yard TD pass and ran for another. Reily Zarate and Jake Paras scored the other Bulldogs’ touchdowns.

Duncan’s 1888 Agricultural Hall sat on five acres beside the now-demolished Mound. The hall was rebuilt in 1914 and called The Armoury during the First and Second World Wars. It was demolished in 1969 after a Supreme Court ownership decision gave the landmark structure to the Cowichan Tribes. —We want your historical photos of Cowichan people and places.

rumbling about the condition of valley roads has long been a mainstay of coffee shop conversation. Too narrow, too dark, too bumpy, an accident waiting to happen, sidewalks needed — we’ve heard them all. Two stories in a 1949 Leader demonstrate both sides of the ongoing valley road story. At Mesachie Lake, Hillcrest Lumber was praising the provincial government for “the excellent road completed this year between Lake Cowichan and Duncan to connect with the good road running from the lake to Mesachie and Honeymoon Bay.” Meanwhile, Cowichan Station residents were up in arms about the poor condition of their secondary roads. Hillcrest execs were so pleased they held a luncheon prepared in their cookhouse at the plant. “The government is always interested in assisting industry in the province,” Minister of Finance and government co-leader Herbert Anscomb told the group. The ratepayers of little Cowichan Station, frustrated by the lack of action about their roads, decided to take up the matter with the provincial department of works. They circulated a petition they would take to Cowichan-Newcastle MLA-elect A. M. Whisker.

Trucking companies throughout B.C. require professional drivers, mechanics, dispatchers and operations staff right now, which means job seekers with experience and/or training may ¿nd work within their preferred region. For those considering training prior to joining the workforce, demand for skilled workers in the industry is likely to grow — to 2020 and beyond. There are a number of reasons for this. For truck drivers, the industry is facing a North America-wide shortage because most are 45 years or older and nearing retirement (in fact, in Canada, according to a report by the Canada Trucking Human Resources Council, 58 percent of long-haul truck drivers fall in this age range). Similar shortages exist for other jobs, including diesel engine and heavy duty mechanics. Aside from worker shortages, economic growth in the Asia-Paci¿c Gateway is also driving demand for workers in transportation. This applies not only to companies in the Lower Mainland, but in other regions as well, since the AsiaPaci¿c “Gateway” is actually made

up of an integrated supply chain of airports, seaports, rail and road connections, and border crossings, from Prince Rupert to Surrey, with links supplied by trucking. Today’s trucking industry is an exciting place to be. Equipment in many companies is state of the art, meaning increased comfort and ease for drivers and opportunities for mechanics to work with technologically advanced systems, keeping both their skills and interest engaged. Dispatch relies on sophisticated tracking and routing systems. Others on the operations side also use information technology of many kinds to deal with everything from licences and permits, to customer services, accounting, sales and marketing. And, people joining the industry have many career choices. Drivers, for example, may work close to home as pick-up and delivery or short-haul drivers. Those who like the idea of travelling across Canada or North America can become long-haul drivers for an employer or work as owner-operators. Drivers may haul consumer goods, fuel, logs, heavy-duty equipment, livestock – most of what we purchase or consume spent some time on the road with a commercial

It’s a rare moment when the highway in and around Duncan is empty of a commercial truck transporting something, somewhere. truck. If you already have experience as a driver, mechanic or operations worker, most companies advertise jobs on their websites. Members of the BC Trucking Association from across the province may post jobs under “careers” on bctrucking. com, and the provincial and federal governments maintain job sites at WorkBC (workbc.ca/Jobs/) and Working in Canada (workingincanada.gc.ca/ — choose to Explore Careers by Occupation, then by Region). Within the local community, it may also pay to approach a company you’d like to work for, drop off a résumé and inquire if and when they’ll be hiring.

A quick scan through the Duncanarea Yellow Pages reveals more than a dozen ¿rms in the Cowichan area. If you’d like to enter the industry but need training, there are also many avenues to explore. Although there is not a standard training course for professional drivers, there are numerous private schools throughout B.C. that offer programs, including Cowichan School of Motoring.

The bond of Burma

Douglas Haynes and Ward Stevens live together in Duncan’s AbbeyÄeld House seniors home. Over conversation one night they discoverd they had both served in the Second World War together in Burma, not 40 kilometres apart, despect Stevens serving with Canada and Haynes with Britain.

Nearly 70 years ago: Neighbours in local seniors home both earned the Burma Star for war service

very night, after they’ve shared a delicious dinner with their six Abbey¿eld housemates, Douglas Haynes and Ward Stevens say the same words to each other in the Hindustani language. Stevens said, “We say ‘Have a good night’. That was the language we learned in India.” The men were stationed not 40 kilometres apart near the India-Burmese border almost 70 years ago during the Second World War. Now they ¿nd themselves sharing lodging in Duncan. Haynes recalled how they came to realize they had been serving in the same location. “We discovered it quite naturally. We got talking one day and we asked each other ‘where were you serving?’ We each said Burma.”

They were in Bengal, in the east of India, working with their respective squadrons as part of the Burma Campaign. For that, each earned The Burma Star — the only two men with this distinction living on Vancouver Island. In 1943, Stevens was studying for a Masters in Biology at Iowa State University when he was conscripted into the Canadian army. He was sent to Edmonton to train as a navigator in the Air Force. “I was old. Almost 25. Most of the rest of the crew were under 20. Except for the pilot, he was 29.” Stevens learned to navigate with a sextant, a tool used to determine one’s location using stars and the horizon. “There was no ground position indicator like there

is now. The only thing a navigator had was a sextant to shoot the stars. I wish I could have found a sextant for old times’ sake. It was the most demanding of skills, except being a pilot, of course. Right from the outset I said I wanted to be a navigator. That’s where I ended up.” After his training in Edmonton, Stevens went to Boundary Bay, B.C., where he joined the crew he would ¿ght with in Asia. “We had a pilot, a copilot, two wireless operators, a bomb aimer, a navigator and three gunners. We Àew four-engine Liberators. They’re not big by today’s standard but in those days it was a big plane.” Stevens still has his wartime maps made of silk to resist mildew, and his log books in which he kept

track of the long Àights he and his crew made over Burma, Cambodia, Thailand, and Malaysia in the two years he served. They Àew up to 20 hours in one day dropping supplies and people who were seeking intelligence in enemy territory. Stevens is grateful his crew never dropped bombs but those long Àights took a toll on his health. “I was in really good condition when we got there because I’d always been active. And we’d had commando training like climbing ropes and going over obstacles. By the time the tour ¿nished, I was like a wet rag.” He remembered one close call near the end of the war. While Àying down the coast of Sumatra, they were met with unfriendly ¿re. “We were jumped by three Japanese ¿ghters. We didn’t have any guns on board except the waist guns, which couldn’t shoot forward or backwards. The tail gunner had a chance to get a shot at them but by that time they would squeal off and he didn’t even have a chance to get his guns around. We were more or less defenceless. “We got down within about 1,200 feet of the water, which meant they couldn’t come at us from below. So they each came around and I could see the cannon shells bursting closer and closer to us and I thought, ‘I’m next.’ They missed us.” After that incident, Stevens’ crew was put on leave and not long afterward the war ended. Stevens remembers arguing about whether or not the atom bomb should have been dropped on the Japanese. “It was a terrible thing and it shouldn’t have happened. The people who were in the Air Force were a pretty select group and were educated in one ¿eld or another. more on B12

On Remembrance Day… We recognize the many sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform, both today and throughout our nation’s history. We honour their courage and dedication, and we thank them for their contribution to our country.

White cross memorial program gathers momentum again in South Cowichan Malahat Historical Society: group takes the torch to help program in the south end Maeve Maguire

News Leader Pictorial

S

ince 1926, in late fall, white cedar crosses adorned with cedar sprigs and blood-red poppies mark grave sites around the Cowichan Valley. While we pay respects on Remembrance Day to those who died in the war, the crosses recognize those who served in the war and survived, those who returned to live out their lives at home. The tradition slowed to a trickle when only one elderly volunteer, Alice May Kennett, placed crosses at Mountain View Cemetery on her own. Cowichan Valley resident Mike Bieling took it upon himself to reinvigorate the tradition and engaged his middle-school students to create the crosses and invited local air, sea, and army cadets to salute the

St. Peter’s Quamichan Cemetery historian Priscilla Lowe, along with her husband David, placed 249 white crosses on the grave site of veterans on Thursday, Nov. 1. Andrew Leong

grave sites as crosses were placed. Until this year, Jim Wisnia and the Mill Bay-Malahat Historical Society participated as observers of the ceremonies. This year, they took over from Bieling the ceremony organization and cross placements in the South Cowichan area. “We were impressed with the ceremony and the dignity of the event. We saw it was a worthwhile endeavour and as a historical society it made sense for us to be involved. We can take some of the load off Mike, who has been doing it pretty much singlehandedly in our area.” The cross placement ceremony happens at the end of October. The crosses remain at the grave sites until late November, at which point they are collected and stored until next year. Wisnia said this lets community and family members to visit the grave sites before and after Remembrance

Day. “If people weren’t able to join us on the day we place the crosses, it gives them a chance to go out and appreciate what their relatives have contributed to the community.” Wisnia said the idea is to honour all those in armed security occupations, even those who fought on the other side of the battle ground. “In the South Cowichan, down at the former Methodist United church cemetery in Mill Bay, there is one grave of a gentleman who served in the German army. He is also being recognized.” Cemeteries with crosses in South Cowichan include Shawnigan cemetery, Mill Bay United Church (originally the Methodist United Church), St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and the Dougan Family Cemetery behind Valleyview mall.

After 28 years, The Last Post still brings chills to trumpeter playing it

Ladysmith: bugler takes great pride in adding emotional contribution to Remembrance Day Maeve Maguire

News Leader Pictorial

W

hen Alfred Ledret lifts his trumpet to play the Last Post, it’s a deeply emotional moment for those listening to the haunting tune. It’s the same for the man who plays it. “I can play in a rock band in front of 500 bikers. But it’s really hard to do The Last Post in front of all those people. It’s so sombre and you just think of all those in the war.” Ledret joked that a little nip of whisky helps him overcome his nerves, which he still gets even after playing the Ladysmith Remembrance Day ceremony for 28 years, give or take two. “I’ve missed twice. Once I was doing a forestry job up at Mount Seymour watershed. I took my horn with me that time and played. And once I had the Àu so bad I couldn’t make it.” Ledret has played The Last Post for many veteran funerals, including those of his grandfather who fought in the First World War and his father who was with the Air Force in Second World War, two of Ledret’s most dif¿cult performances of all. Ledret learned how to play the trumpet when he

was nine. He was attracted to it after watching Rin Tin Tin and American Western movies with buglers calling the charge. He received an old army bugle from an uncle who played in an army band, and who fought in the war. “I took it back to a logging camp in Smith Inlet where we lived. It would echo around the mountains. It would drive everyone crazy.” Ledret’s mother bought him a trumpet, which he played in school bands then eventually in bars. When he moved to Ladysmith, he was gigging in a pub where some of the veterans from Ladysmith’s branch of the Royal Canadian Legion heard him perform and asked him to play for Remembrance Day. There are American and British Army and Navy versions of The Last Post, which is played before two minutes’ silence is observed in memory of soldiers lost in the war, and the Reveille, which is played afterwards. Ledret only knew the American versions of the songs but with the help of a tape the veterans gave him, he learned the British versions. “We play the Army version in Canada. I also learned the British Naval Reveille after I played a veteran’s funeral. I was walking away from a grave site where I’d just played the Army versions of The Last Post and Reveille and this old naval guy asked if I knew the British naval one. He quickly hummed it. I remembered it and went home and played it.” Ledret is impressed how the bugle was used as the instrument for communications for horse regiments. “Bugles were used for the charge and retreat in

Friends don’t often talk about war days from B7

Haynes, meanwhile, volunteered in the British war effort at age 18 in September 1939. His ¿rst action was as a ¿ghter pilot during the Battle of Britain in 1940, the ¿rst major campaign fought entirely by air forces. Two years later, he was posted to Burma as a radio operator. “I chose to join the war effort. I thought it was the thing to do. In Burma, we kept communications with radio. We were stationed on the ground but we moved around all the time.” Haynes encountered some ¿ghting but mostly gathered intelligence. He was in Burma for 3 1/2 years before returning home in 1944. Haynes moved with his wife and three children to Canada 12 years later.

“I came on a ship in 1956 to Calgary ¿rst. I was there about a year and my wife couldn’t stand the altitude. Doctor said ‘you’ve got to get her out to the coast’ and we came out to Nanaimo.” Haynes was a self-employed builder and his three children now live around the Cowichan Valley. He was three times president of the Cobble Hill Legion in 1955, 1963, and 1972. More than sharing medals, Haynes and Stevens share a history, one that is still hard to deal with. An emotional Haynes said on Remembrance Day he thinks about all the men who died during the war. He ¿nds comfort in living with someone who understands what he went through, but they rarely talk about it. “We don’t talk about the war days. We’ve got too many things to remember.” City of Duncan Commissionaire Stu Allen raises the poppy Åag outside city hall on Sunday, Oct. 28.

Roots duo Doug Cox and Betty Soo play Mill Bay

ON STAGE

Promoter Peter Sussman says Betty Soo, left, and Doug Cox might seem an unlikely pair. “One hails from the cadre of songwriters living in Austin, Texas, the other from the paradisiacal reaches of Vancouver Island,” he reports on his website. “The two musicians met while teaching at Acoustic Alaska Guitar Camp, where they discovered a shared fondness for good songs.

“Living 2,500 miles apart (a couple airplane flights plus a long ferry ride) and working in different musical worlds aren’t circumstances that make for convenient collaboration. But their friendship and musical respect were immediate, as they found countless familiar threads in the people and music they admired.” They will play some of that music this week-

end during a house concert in Mill Bay. The show is set for Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. in Mill Bay, as part of the Shady Grove at the Sussmans house concert series. Suggested donations for this event are $20 per person. Reservations and additional information at shadygrove.ca.

MacIsaac trades bad boy spots for heartfelt talent Review: East Coast fiddlers shows why he is a bow legend Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

F

orget his tabloid scandals and sleazy labels. Celtic ¿ddle bad-boy Ashley MacIsaac’s morphing into affable, down-to-earth player was ably displayed during last Thursday’s terri¿c Cowichan Theatre return. Some folks may have thought a techie had sauntered on stage for a sound check after a bunch of adept songs by opening trio The Small Town Villains. But it was MacIsaac, cradling that inexpensive instrument. He made it sound priceless during two sets of down-home and upbeat numbers for 400 ¿ddleheads. Rename him Ashley McCeilidh. “Aw, youse are kind,” he said, from under a red RCMP cap, eyes hidden behind shades. Cowichanians know quality music when they hear it — MacIsaac came to play, between ample samples of witty East Coast banter.

Act one heard patriotic MacIsaac, and guitarist Chris Babineau, deliver The Maple Leaf Forever, the tender Ashokan Farewell (from director Ken Burns’ Civil War documentary series), some cartoon numbers from Merry Melodies and the Mocking Bird, lively My Cape Breton Home, and intricate bow wiggling on The Beautiful Lake Ensley. MacIsaac was just getting warmed-up. Act two had him and Babineau joined by digital hand-drummer Jay (Sticks) Andrews for a Àurry of songs that saw MacIsaac pull clumps of spent strings from his hot bow. With his two sidemen, MacIsaac, 38, showed us how he’s developed a whole new ¿ddling sound, rimmed by rap, that he and Sticks are laying down for their looming CLAMO CD. Most memorable was his new Prince William’s Coronation March that’s getting a royal arrangement, he explained. (If this tune’s embraced by Kate and Wills, don’t be surprised if MacIsaac gets knighted.) Captain America gave us more the jigs and reels that have perhaps made MacIsaac Canada’s most

Stomping on the theatre’s study maple-sprung stage, MacIsaac’s vicious violin also hoisted his 2001 hit Lay Me Down, absurdist Look-

ing Glass, Sleepy Maggie, satanic Devil In The Kitchen, singalong Sonny’s Song, and even the lightning fast Orange Blossom Special. Yes, it was quite a night primed by the Small Town Villains that MacIsaac predicted will become “big-town heroes.” Guitarist Malcolm Owen-Flood, drummer Jordan Finlay, and bassist-trumpeter Cameron Jarvis performed an impressive list of re-

freshingly listenable, clapable tunes that often hugged minor keys. From When You Come Home, and I Told You So, to Because I’m Your Son, and Gallows, the STV trio showed why MacIsaac’s prophecy might be right. Friday morning surely left some fans reaching for one of his CDs for a hair of the bow that bit them. Celtic-¿ddling concert rating: 9.5 jigs out of 10.

Louise Coulthard with watercolour Autumn In The Yukon. Her work joins about 150 other Crofton Art Group pieces in Saturday’s Unframed Art & Handcrafted Jewelry Show & Sale.

andscape artist Louise Coulthard found a whole new vista when she joined the Crofton Art Group 11 years ago. “I like to do local scenes, but I have done others as well,” she said of her pieces occasionally whetted by a lake or river. “At 70, I was looking for things to do and connected with the group. “From there, I started joining in and

learned how to paint with help from the group,” said the watercolour and acrylic painter. “I also went to the library and bought books. We have workshops too.” Results of her self-taught work — and 150-some pieces from Cowichan’s oldest 40-member art group — surface at Saturday’s Unframed Art & Handcrafted Jewelry Sale in the seaside Crofton Seniors Centre (near the ferry terminal). “This show’s a matted show,” said former nurse, Coulthard, 82. “They’re ready to frame so we get quite a few pieces. “It’s just one day, but the big thing is the cost is much lower when you don’t have to have them framed — it’s a great way to get original art at a very reasonable price.”

“Jewelry at our show is very popular,” Duncan-based Coulthard said of work by silversmith Michelle Heath, and bead artist Doris Myers. Meanwhile, great-grandmother Coulthard enjoys the group’s half-dozen annual pro workshops encouraging members to paint daily. “It’s good training, and I don’t have to go and pay privately. “Painting is absolutely wonderful.” Your ticket What: Crofton Art Group’s Unframed Art & Handcrafted Jewelry Show and Sale When: Nov. 10, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Where: Crofton Seniors Centre, 1507 Joan Ave., Crofton

Your Veterinarian... your other Family Doctor Dear Doctor: My dog has been chewing at his hind end a lot for the last week. I don’t think it is fleas because I am very sensitive to flea bites and I haven’t been bothered. What else could it be?

Gillian Wiley Veterinarian

A: This is a great question and one that veterinarians are asked frequently because

itchy dogs are very common. If your dog is chewing at the area just ahead of his tail I would be checking very carefully for fleas. Using the fact that one is not being bitten is, in my experience, a poor indicator of fleas in a household. Fleas need cat or dog blood in order to lay eggs. If there is a suitable pet as a victim they will seldom bite a human. However, remove the pets

from a flea infested house, and watch out!! This is usually the worst time of year for flea problems as we raise the warmth and humidity by closing up our houses creating ideal flea conditions. The flea population seems to peak in late September and October. So don’t stop treating too early, use a flea comb to be sure and use effective flea products.
