MURDER IN MEXICO

Body found tied to tree

‘It was an unbelievable shock’ NEIL HORNER

news@pqbnews.com

A former Parksville resident has been killed in Mexico. Ron Lloyd MacKintosh was reported missing on Oct. 22 from his home in Melaque near Puerto Vallarta, sparking a search by police. That search ended Tuesday, when a municipal patrol found Mackintosh’s body tied to a tree in an undeveloped area near the coastal town of Barra de Navidad. Mackintosh, who had recently retired from his position at Koers and Associates Engineering in Parksville, was last seen dropping off his girlfriend in his black, 2008 Jeep Patriot at 5:15 p.m. and then left to go home — but he never arrived. His girlfriend reported him missing the next day. Mackintosh reportedly had his dog with him at the time of his disappearance. Both the dog and the vehicle have yet to be found. “It was an unbelievable shock,” said Tony Koers. “It was hard having him missing for a long time as well. We were living on false hope that things might turn out.” See WORKED, page A4

Funding approved QB fire hall construction can start in new year JOHN HARDING

editor@pqbnews.com

Construction of a new fire hall for Qualicum Beach will begin in 2013, provided no changes are made to a financial plan adopted as law Monday night by town council. The town’s official financial plan now includes borrowing of $1 million in 2013 and $3 million in 2014 for the new facility. The borrowing does not mean a tax increase for residents. Rather, it shifts money that was earmarked for other priorities like paving and intersection work to the payments for the cost of borrowing for the construction of the new fire hall. Historically, town staff and councillors have reviewed the budget for a few months and have made changes up until mid-spring of the following year. See IT’S THE START, page A4

Area residents will find their copies of the PARKSVILLE QUALICUM BEACH NEWS a little bulkier on Tuesday. That’s because they’ll be stuffed with paper bags from Qualicum Foods that members of the Dashwood, Parksville and Qualicum Beach fire departments, along with members of Arrowsmith Search and Rescue will be collecting on Saturday, Nov. 17 and Sunday, Nov. 18 — hopefully full of food. Qualicum Beach firefighters will have trucks circulating through neighbourhoods from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. to collect donations of nonperishable foods. There will also be dropoff

points at Qualicum Foods, and the BC Government Liquor Store on Primrose. On Sunday, donations can be dropped off at the fire hall between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. There is also a bin at town hall. In Parksville, firefighters will go door to door from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on both days. Donations can also be taken to Quality Foods in Parksville, the Salvation Army or the fire hall. In Dashwood, firefighters will have trucks patrolling the neighbourhood from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Donations can also be dropped off at either fire station. Search and Rescue volunteers will tour the Chartwell area on Saturday only. Besides food such as macaroni, canned goods, rice, powdered milk, juice boxes and cereal, toys and donations of cash will be welcomed.

Mary Brouilette said the public will be “absolutely involved� in the process. “This is not happening behind anyone’s back,� said Brouilette. “This is a process. We want to get it right and we are at the beginning of this process.� Brouilette also said the $4 million figure is “pure speculation at this point. We don’t know what it will cost.� Coun. Dave Willie said passing the financial plan with provisions for fire hall borrowing Monday night was “an important commitment for this community.� He also spoke of the safety factor and the current fire hall’s inefficiencies in regards to earthquake readiness. “It’s prudent that this council take this serious because it is serious,� he said. Mayor Teunis Westbroek, who has been cautioning council it may be more prudent to hold off on construction until avenues for grants could be fully pursued, put that sentiment out there again Monday, warning that grants are generally not available for projects that are already under construction.

RAIL SERVICE

QB says no to funding request JOHN HARDING editor@pqbnews.com

Qualicum Beach will not be supporting the recent push to re-start rail service up and down Vancouver Island. Town council passed a motion Monday night to instruct its representative on the Regional District of Nanaimo board, Coun. Dave Willie, to vote against any request from the Island Corridor Foundation for RDN money. Coun. Bill Luchtmeijer said the rail project “is something Vancouver Island just can’t afford.” Luchtmeijer pointed a provincial government study that suggested $70 million would be needed to restore the rail to the point where it could carry passengers again on one run a day, and that didn’t include the cost of any repairs or replacement of trestles that are more than 100 years old. The Island Corridor Foundation, which acts as the owner of the railway for the five regional districts that actually own it, has asked the districts for about $3 million, which works out to roughly $1.50 per household for five years in this regional district. The federal and provincial governments have each ponied up 7.5 million taxpayer dollars. The 17-member RDN board is expected to vote on the funding request before the end of the month. “If 18.5 million is all you get and $70 million is what you need, it’s just not viable,” said Luchtmeijer, warning that this project could become a “bottomless pit. When do we stop

throwing money at it?” Coun. Scott Tanner was the only dissenting voice at the meeting Monday night. He said the project was “worth every dollar.” He also said he agreed with Luchtmeijer that “it may not be the last request” for money from the foundation. Willie said he found the lack of information coming from the foundation “disturbing.” He cited business models and suggested there’s not enough freight business to sustain a new rail service. “It just doesn’t make any sense,” said Willie. Qualicum Beach Mayor Teunis Westbroek supported the motion Monday night, suggesting this current funding call from the foundation could be “the thin edge of the wedge.” “Even in high (population) places in the world, they (rail services) still need subsidies,” said the mayor. RDN Board Chair and French Creek representative Joe Stanhope has said he supports the funding call from the foundation and he reiterated that when speaking with The NEWS this week. Stanhope said he has received letters and calls from his constituents and “most of the people are in favour of it.” Stanhope said he believes the proposed operator of the service, Southern Rail, is committed to pumping $70 million into the corridor over 20 years. Calls by The NEWS this week to the Island Corridor Foundation for comment were not returned.

REMEMBERING THE KOREAN WAR

Survivors feel guilt Local man believes the real heroes are the ones who did not come home Qualicum Beach resident Lee Faulkner is a war hero — but he doesn’t think he is. Lee served during the Korean War, between 1950-1953. It is sometimes called The Forgotten War because, in Canada at least, its importance has been downplayed. When North Korea invaded South Korea on June 25, 1950, the United Nations Peacekeeping force was alerted. Canada deployed three battleships and battalions from three Canadian Regiments: the Royal Canadian Regiment, the Royal 22nd Regiment and the Princess Patricias. Around that time Faulkner was stationed in Petawawa, Ontario in the 23rd Royal Canadian Regiment, Airborne Brigade (Paratroopers). This was an elite and valuable fighting force, destined to patrol Canada’s northern borders during the Cold War with Russia. As the war in Asia dragged on, Faulkner found himself and his battalion shipped to the Korean front lines in March, 1952 to defend the in-

famous 38th Parallel from the invading North Koreans, who were by now being aided by communist China. He was 19. “I don’t know why I survived,” he says, adding that he still feels a tremendous guilt because he did survive. The real heroes, he believes, are the ones “still out on patrol,” he ones who never came home. The Americans had retreated south to the 38th Parallel and shared frontline defense with the Allied Forces. Just over the ridge is where the trenches were located. Here, Faulkner lived within a nightmare of raids, shell fire and constant machine gun rounds. His chronic cough attests to the effects of an existence beneath the continuous fallout cloud of cordite from said shells — ours and theirs. Other hazards came in the form of poisonous snakes which infested the rice fields, trenches, and blankets. The good part was, he says, they ate the rats. While on this assignment, Faulkner and his battalion was pulled from Hill 187 in the

middle of the night to help the Americans with prisoner of war uprisings on Kojedo Island. After six weeks, they were returned to Hill 355, where fierce fighting continued. In a war considered among the three deadliest in history, Lee had managed to survive two of the bloodiest attacks against the Canadian forces. Many of his compatriots were not so lucky. More than half of his platoon didn’t make it. And, among those who did survive, so many did not do well on their return home. Oct. 23 of this year was the 60th anniversary of the “worst day of his life.” This was an attack in retaliation for a six-man “snatch” (hostage-taking mission) in which Faulkner provided cover for the retreat. Faulkner refused an officer’s commission because he preferred to remain among the troops. He can still name every soldier he fought with and who died by name. — Submitted By Joan Lane, Branch 76, Royal Canadian Legion

Qualicum Beach town council will develop guidelines for groups that wish to invite councillors to their meetings. It’s an issue that came to a head at the Qualicum Beach Residents Association (QBRA) last week when Mayor Tuenis Westbroek said he didn’t believe he could talk about anything council may vote on in the future because councillors Scott Tanner and Bill Luchtmeijer were also in the room. Westbroek told the gathering the advice he was getting from town staff was that if there were three or more councillors in a room, that constituted a quorum and a de facto council meeting. And since there was no official notice or agenda posted for this

to discuss pending town issues like the new fire hall or paving projects. That decision didn’t come before more passionate discussion on the subject Monday night. “This whole policy is a great disservice to the people of Qualicum Beach and us as elected officials,� said Tanner, who is also a paid-up member of the QBRA but volunteered to leave the room at QBRA meeting last week. “I don’t want to spend the rest of my term looking over my shoulder to count how many councillors are in the room.� “Other communities don’t take this to this extreme,� said Coun. Dave Willie. “It doesn’t seem to be an issue anywhere else. I think we’re taking it way too far. It’s ridiculous. We live in a small town and you’re telling me I can’t go to a meeting?�

supposed council meeting, nothing forwarding town business could be discussed. That stance by the mayor had residents, council members and the letters to the editor pages of The NEWS hopping with all sorts of emotion. It’s been a convoluted mess of opinions, legal grey areas and inflammatory comments and accusations. Town corporate administrator Trudy Coates read from the Community Charter — basically the book of laws for municipalities in B.C. — at council’s meeting Monday night in an apparent attempt to provide some clarity on the issue. In the end, that clarity seemed elusive Monday night and council decided to send the issue to the committee of the whole with an aim to develop guidelines for groups like the QBRA who want

After a couple months, many in-depth discussions and seemingly endless charts and billing models, Parksville council has selected a new water rate structure. At this Monday’s regular council meeting the sixth and seventh options were presented which level off some of the largest increases and charge $1.68 commercial flat rate per cubic metre (1,000 litres) of water used.

“Water is highly undervalued,� said Coun. Marc Lefebvre referencing the staff’s point that the average residential user would pay $308 a year for water under option six, while electricity and gas bills range from $600 to $1,200 and cable and Internet range from $600 to $2,000 a year. “Somehow we lose sight of that when we get lost in the numbers,� Lefebvre added. “Whether we pay now or pay later, we’re going to have to pay more for water. Per-

sonally I’d rather pay more now because it will just cost more in the future.� The city adopted a new tiered billing structure in 2010 to encourage conservation but when they proposed changes in September to address complaints, early attempts drew a lot of opposition with models suggesting some customers would see large cost increases while others would see decreases. The Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce

said some businesses would face 75 per cent increases. Council reviewed a number of options, including no change except a 10 per cent increase for budget needs. The options were complicated by council’s desire to begin equalizing the rates paid by residents and businesses (which currently pay less per cubic metre), as well as a push to build up a reserve for a provincially required water treatment facility and new Englishman River water intake.

At the time of the meeting Monday when it was the residents’ turn to address council, Hilda Pearce said: “I wonder why council chooses to follow some part of the charter and not others.� It was not clear Monday night when council would bring any recommendations on this subject to a regular meeting of council for adoption.

Director of Finance Lucky Butterworth suggested option six was probably the “fairest� though said there were a number of complicating factors. The chamber of commerce preferred option six, which will equalize rates between commercial and residential customers over three years.

Council amended the suggested option adding a $32 per year fixed charge for the water treatment plant reserve. After considerable discussion council agreed it was the best option they’d see so far and voted unanimously to put it into effect for the March 2013 billing cycle.

This holds true even if your body mass index does not indicate obesity. Waist measurements over 34.6 inches for women and over 40.2 inches for men were deemed to have signiďŹ cantly increased risk. The good news? It

can be modiďŹ ed! Of course, the best ways to manage diabetes include diet and exercise. However, statistics show that more than half of diabetics suffer from arthritis and that the pain often leads to reduced physical activity. But! It’s important to note that exercise is also an excellent prescription for arthritis! Low impact exercise, including walking, swimming and cycling, improves the management of both conditions. Diabetics can have trouble maintaining healthy blood sugar levels. Usually, these levels correlate to what’s eaten, so choosing foods that help to reduce the highs and lows are of great beneďŹ t. Try checking out the glycemic index of foods (“googleâ€? it). Foods with high GIs can cause sugar spikes, while low GIs lead to more stable blood levels. Plus, a good GI diet also improves heart disease, cancer, etc. Diabetes is a complicated chronic condition and new treatments come onto the market frequently. Talk to our pharmacists to ensure you are getting the most from your diabetic medications.

A Familiar Face in Nanoose Bay Quality Foods in Nanoose Bay’s Red Gap Centre invites you to drop in and see Mike MacMicking, returning as your new store manager!

Mike began his Quality Foods career at QF Nanoose Bay in the grocery and produce departments for ten years before moving to other duties in the company. Now with 16 years of absorbing the Quality Foods culture of community and customer service, Mike returns, ready to deliver his well-rounded experience to Nanoose Bay shoppers. “I’m really excited to get reacquainted with the Nanoose

Bay community, and will be working hard to make your shopping experience the best that it can be,” says Mike. “There is so much to look forward to here!” Freshness is a big part of Mike’s focus on the shopping experience, and that’s where Stace Dewolf’s strong fresh produce background comes in. In his new role as QF Nanoose’s assistant store manager, Stace comes from our flagship Qualicum Foods store and is already receiving great feedback from his customers. Previous store manager Jason Burrows has moved on to new opportunities in the Quality Foods family, and looks forward to reconnecting with many of his past customers. Quality Foods Nanoose Bay celebrates twenty years in the Red Gap Centre, and is the fourth of eleven QF stores opened since 1982.

Job well done

S

tudies, reports, branding exercises. They are enough to put taxpayers and reporters alike to sleep. And when they originate from any level of government, the cries of “waste” come early and often. That does not seem to be the case with the branding exercise commissioned by what used to be called the Oceanside Tourism Association. Its members — real people, doing real business and employing hundreds of real residents in our area – have told us they are delighted with changes being implemented, especially as it relates to the association’s new name. It all seemed too hunky-dory for our skeptical minds. The idea that the OTA would ditch a name like this, one ingrained in the local vernacular and used by so many organizations and businesses, seemed a big move, one that might not be necessary and might actually hurt some of the group’s members. So we worked the phones, calling a few of the area’s largest tourism operators, expecting to hear at least one dissenting voice. We purposely called people who were not on the OTA’s board because well, what are they going to say other than something to present a united front? We’re not talking about Qualicum Beach town council here – this OTA board knows how to debate sticky, personal issues behind closed doors and present a clear, singular message to the public. Much to our surprise, our admittedly unscientific poll of operators came up with no opposing views when it came to the name change from Oceanside to Parksville Qualicum Beach. Now, we may still hear from those in Bowser or Coombs who may feel excluded by the new name, but the association seems to have plans to help members in those communities take advantage of some new opportunities. This is not some government study destined to collect dust on a shelf somewhere. This is real — the livelihoods of many of your neighbours depend on how well this region is marketed to the country and the world. So we salute the Parksville Qualicum Beach Tourism Association and its consultant, Stormy Lake, for a job well done. Just don’t forget about our buddies in Bowser.

Letters CHECK THE FACTS In response to Alf Randall’s letter to the editor in the Nov. 6 edition of THE NEWS. The evidence for human-caused global change has grown exponentially over the last 20 years. The fact we humans are at fault now has complete consensus through the rational scientific community worldwide yet there are still deniers. Why? It’s OK to be a climate sceptic but not a denier. The proper response is to take the scientific approach to the evaluation of claims. A sceptic examines claims one by one, considers the evidence and follows the facts wherever they lead. A denier has staked out a position in advance and uses “confirmation bias� the tendency to look for and find confirmatory evidence for pre-existing beliefs and ignore or dismiss the rest. In New Scientist May 2010, Michael Shermer said: “Skepticism is integral to the scientific process. It requires extensive observation, careful experimentation and cautious inference. Denial is different. It is the automatic gainsaying of a claim regardless of the evidence for it — sometimes in the teeth of evidence. Denialism is typically driven by ideology or religious belief, where the commitment to the belief takes precedence over the evidence. Belief comes first, reasons for the belief follow, and those reasons are winnowed to ensure that the belief survives intact.� For the sake of all human life on the planet I urge everyone to use your brains and think for yourselves. Become properly informed. Look up some of the facts gleaned

QUOTABLE:

“We were constantly asked ‘where is Oceanside?’� HELEN CORCORAN, see story page A23

from countless unbiased scientific studies done over the years from all over the world. The facts don’t lie. A good place to start is with The Hot Topic by Gabrielle Walker and Sir David King. ROBIN PEARSON Qualicum Beach

COLOUR IT GREEN Public transit is only green if it attracts lots of people to use it. The E&N passenger service never did that because the schedule was utterly impractical. Adding morning and evening runs between Nanaimo and Victoria will not help much. Who wants to leave Nanaimo at six in the morning and not get back until eight at night? For a much cheaper operating budget than the railway and a fraction of the capital investment, we could have bus service from Campbell River through to Victoria, several trips a day in each direction, shorter travel times, affordable fares, and good connections to bus routes and services along the way such as BC Ferries. Here in Parksville-Qualicum, even with close to $20 million spent on the railway we will still have no way to get to Victoria and back in one day by public transit. That’s a slap in the face to the thousands of Islanders who are unable to use a car or prefer public transit as a sustainable option. The climate crisis demands that we invest in transportation that minimizes emissions of CO2. Buses use significantly less fuel than the E&N’s railcars, which burn a litre of diesel to go one kilometre. Moreover, 10,000 wooden ties must be replaced every

year. Five acres of forest must be cut down, and enough wood to build 25 houses left in the ground to rot. Before public money is spent on the E&N, we need an objective study to compare all the options. With 28 collisions and four killed in five years, safety must also be considered. Governments at all levels should cooperate on providing public transportation on Vancouver Island that is safe, accessible, affordable, convenient and green. DOUG HOPWOOD Qualicum Beach

MAYBE NEXT YEAR We would like to thank you for the ways that you have supported us through advertising Bethlehem Walk in THE PARKSVILLE QUALICUM BEACH NEWS. In early August, we set out to ensure that our village would be safe and secure for our guests. We are confident that the village is safe. We then looked at the human resources needed to lead Bethlehem Walk. We were unable to secure overall leadership for the event for this year. So, we will not be holding Bethlehem Walk this year. We will rest this year. Early in 2013, we will begin discussions with our congregation relating to Bethlehem Walk 2013. Our guests have donated approximately $12,000 to the Salvation Army and many van loads of nonperishable foods. We would encourage you to drop by the Salvation Army with your financial and food gifts.

letters WATERFRONT PRIORITY With more than 8,000 people living here, change in our physical environment will inevitably continue. We can continue to shape the town of Qualicum Beach or we can allow conventional development practices to do it for us. The recent relaxation of development cost charges and potential building heights, and the proposed development of a new fire hall, may be useful tools and building blocks. These are typical mechanisms and tools of town planning, but it is typically larger economic and social forces that create development scenarios. The waterfront I experienced as a boy 55 years ago has become increasingly compromised, enervated and endangered. It needs a new vision that ensures its environmental health, protects it from rising sea levels, enhances its character and  beauty,  integrates  residential, commercial and recreational activity, and allows innovative traffic movement.  A phased waterfront restoration project should be our planning priority; The end result should be a universally admired model of environmental, urban and infrastructure planning, design and management. Our waterfront should define the Town of Qualicum Beach as a sought-after regional and provincial destination. Our council should provide leadership and resources for the articulation of a vision for the Waterfront Restoration Project. We can assemble professional expertise to develop and manage this project. We can learn from Vancouver and West Vancouver, White Rock, Parksville and Nanaimo, among others. We should seek, from all levels of government, the support necessary to imple-

ment our vision. Our council, with its diverse experience and talent, has been going through an inevitable period of adjustment, but I think we have now had enough contention. It is easy to focus on our differences in the absence of a larger purpose. We need the waterfront restoration project to stimulate our collective imagination.  ANDREW BROWN, Qualicum Beach

DUBIOUS TAKE

Obviously Mayor Teunis Westbroek was a little confused when, at the AGM of the Qualicum Beach Residents Association (QBRA), he shut down discussion. When he plucked out of thin air a demonstrably dubious interpretation of what and when council meetings are considered official, someone should have kindly reminded him that he was attending a QBRA AGM and not a council meeting. How could he make such a mistake? I question Westbroek’s attitude towards his fellow councillors. Like them, he is a councillor with the added duties of chairmanship by having run for the mayor’s position. That position confers no divine right; it possesses no veto; it leaves him as equal to the other councillors as they are to him. Should that be a problem? It is council that directs the operations of our town. When council decides on issues facing the town, opinions may differ, but that is the nature of democracy. In those discussion, one can only hope that all five councillors have access to information about the operations of the town to allow sensible opinions to be formed. So please let us distinguish between

URGING A RE-VISIT

Re: PV chamber favours mine, Nov. 6 edition of The NEWS. It’s unfortunate the Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce recently voted in favour of supporting the proposed Raven Coal Mine in Fanny Bay. Based on their news release, one wonders if the chamber has heard solely from the proponent of the project and not any of the many people or groups who have serious concerns about it. It seems the chamber board determined that “there doesn’t seem to be anything proven at this point that shows a detriment to the community,” despite the lack of a completed environmental assessment on the project. Citing the old line of job creation, the chamber has hastily and irresponsibly taken a stand on an extremely contentious issue without having all the facts in order to make an educated decision. According to a recently-released report on the job projections for the mine, the proponents numbers are seriously called into question. We would urge the chamber to reconsider its motion and revisit it once all the information is in and a thoughtful and educated decision can be made. If not, we hope that the chamber at least has the resources to thoroughly read and analyze the proponent’s final 200-pluspage application to determine, in their view, if the project poses any adverse environmental effects.

Laura Winter holds a baby sea turtle during the filming of the documentary Hitchhiking Across the Atlantic.

Sailing to a better world Documentary explores marine environment and wildlife LISSA ALEXANDER

reporter@pqbnews.com

W

hen documentary filmmaker Laura Winter isn’t sailing around visiting nature conservation projects in the Canary Islands, Cape Verde or the Caribbean, she calls Bowser her home. Winter grew up in Vancouver and finished a masters degree in marine ecology in Germany last year. During her studies she met her boyfriend, Thorsten Boehnke, a filmmaker and sailor. The two have now collaborated on a film that brings together Winter’s education and Boehnke’s knowledge and experience to create the documentary Hitchhiking across the Atlantic. Winter is in town to visit her parents and screen the film at a number of venues, including the Deep Bay Marine Field Station Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. This film, which has already won an award in Germany, is the first in a series called Running Downward that will highlight nature conservation, wildlife adversity and marine research projects, while sailing around the world. Boehnke began filming Hitchhiking across the Atlantic when he got the opportunity to sail from Germany to West Africa with a friend. When they reached the Canary Islands his friend decided to jump ship (and sell his boat) but Boehnke was keen on continuing the journey. Winter joined him and the two “hitchhiked” on boats around the Canary Islands and Cape Verde, visiting conservation projects and filming footage of nesting birds, pilot whales and logger-

head sea turtles, among other marine wildlife. The documentary sheds light on the threats faced by the wildlife, for example sea turtles who come to nest on local beaches. “If you flip [the turtles] over then they’re helpless,” Winter explained. “They can’t right themselves again, and [poachers] can get the equivalent of a week’s salary by killing one turtle and selling the meat.” Winter and Boehnke have now bought their own sailboat and will use it to sail around the world to film the rest of the project. They will be conducting research projects on jellyfish populations and plastic pollution found at sea, focusing on micro plastics. Winter said the purpose of the project is to raise awareness of the marine environment, nature and wildlife and the effect human activities have on them. And although some of the topics they touch on in the first film are worrisome, overall there is an optimistic outlook, Winter explained. “There’s hope because local people are really getting involved in protecting their environment and the species around them and there’s things we can do as well,” she said. Tickets for the screening in Deep Bay are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. They can be purchased at the Deep Bay Marine Field Station, the Salish Sea Market in Bowser, the Courtyard Cafe in Qualicum Beach and Weinberg’s Good Food at Buckley Bay Ferry Terminal. Following the screening, Winter will host a discussion and answer any questions. Watch a short trailer at www.tigersnail.com.

The Nanaimo Chamber Orchestra will perform Oboe to Go this Sunday, Nov. 11 in Parksville. The program features Pippa Williams to play the Marcello Oboe Concerto. Pippa has been principal oboist with the Vancouver Island Symphony since 1995 and has been a featured soloist with several orchestras. She is the music director of the Strathcona Symphony Orchestra and on faculty with the Nanaimo Conservatory of Music. Under the excellent guidance of musical director Karl Rainer, the orchestra continues to support young strings musicians in the area and always has a new contingent of good young players each season. Come out for a great evening/afternoon of chamber music and support this ever-improving community ensemble. The NCO will play Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Brechin United Church in Nanaimo and Nov. 11 at 2:30 p.m. at St. Edmund’s Anglican Church in Parksville. Tickets are $20, $10 for students and under 12 are free at the Port Theatre Box Office or at the door.

Portraying mood with film Local photographer finished with exhibitions but not with photos LISSA ALEXANDER

reporter@pqbnews.com

Living in a small house in Burnaby with a wife and three daughters, there was little room for photographer Rick Marotz to develop his pictures — but he found a way. Marotz converted the only bathroom into a darkroom, and when it was free, he got to work. “I couldn’t spend too much time in there,”

CONTINUED FROM PAGE A15

In 2003 he and his wife moved to the area to be closer to their daughter who lives in Coombs, and their grandchildren. Over the years Marotz has taken a variety of photos and won numerous awards. He enjoys taking landscape and nature pictures and his awards have included the Kodak International Newspaper Award in 1982, first place and judges choice at the 2004 Brant Festival and Best of Show in the 2005 Oceanside Arts Festival. He was a major contributor to the book The Expo Celebration and has been featured in Canadian Camera magazine, where he was also a contest winner. Marotz recently exhibited his brilliant

French Creek Harbour photos at the McMillan Arts Centre (the MAC). He said he feels the harbour is a moody place and likes to portray this in his photographs. Marotz has shown his work four times at the MAC, but his most recent exhibition this past summer was his last, he said. He may show his work at the Island Exposures Gallery down the road, but he is now 84 years old and ready to retire from exhibitions. But that won’t stop him from taking pictures, he said. “I hope to get better, there’s always so much to learn, even though I’ve been doing photography all my life.”

Artificial playing surface, seats from B.C. Place land at Arbutus Meadows JOHN HARDING editor@pqbnews

Sarah Kirkhope knows she’s playing on turf with a star-studded history, some of it her own. David Beckham, Lui Passaglia, rocks stars and countless others plied their trade on the old turf of B.C. Place Stadium, a field of synthetic grass that now plays host to youngsters trying to get to the big stage. The old artificial turf and some seats from B.C. Place are now set up inside a huge (60,000 square feet) horseshow facility at Arbutus Meadows just outside of Parksville and within the boundaries of Nanoose Bay. Kirkhope and her U-13 teammates from Nanaimo were at the facility this week for practice. “I like having the shelter, not being rained on,” said the

12-year-old. “It’s pretty cool.” She was asked if she knew about all the great athletes and entertainers who once walked, ran and played on the green she was standing on Tuesday night. Sure, she said, but she remembers fondly a tournament she played at B.C. Place five years ago as a seven-year-old. “I remember we won and it was really fun and it was a huge, huge place,” said Kirkhope. There are 2,800 square yards (70 by 40) of turf in the facility, which was purchased by Arbutus Meadows. It will be used as a practice facility from October-March for all ages and levels and from throughout the region, said Claude Bolton, the technical director of the Harbour City Football Club (formerly Nanaimo Youth Soccer), the organization that has reached a financial arrang-

ment to operate the facility. “We are hoping it will become the elite training centre for all levels of play,” Bolton said before putting the U-13 girls though drills. “This is for everyone, the development of our future, our children and not about club affiliations.” There are 1,600 youth registered in the Harbour City club, but Bolton said the facility can be rented by any and all clubs by putting in a request through his club’s website, www.harbourcityfc.com. Bolton expects the facility will attract interest from adult leagues and from other sports like baseball. He said the youngest players “go crazy” when they learn Beckham played on this very turf but, like Kirkhope, the attraction may be more simple. “It’s a great place to hide from the elements.”

NAME CHANGE FOR TOURISM ASSOCIATION

HILLIERS

‘PQB really means something’

Gourmet Foods

‘Oceanside’ was already being used on both coasts of the United States JOHN HARDING editor@pqbnews.com

— we are the region of Parksville Qualicum Beach.” Perhaps Corcoran explains the reasoning behind the name change well when she tells the story of her hockey-playing boys who skated in out-oftown rinks with the word Oceanside on the front of their jerseys. “We were constantly asked: ‘where is Oceanside?’” Shawna Broekhuizen, the general manager of The Beach Club, had similar praise for the name change. “I think this is a great move for the Parksville Qualicum Beach region,” said Broekhuizen. “Stormy Lake con-

The regional tourism association’s recently-announced name change is being applauded by resort operators and politicians alike. What was the Oceanside Tourism Association will now be known as the Parksville Qualicum Beach Tourism Association after a branding process identified the need for the change. “It’s long overdue,” said Helen Corcoran, the restaurant and conference manager at the Quality Resort Bayside. “I think the name change is very positive; I’m all for it. People don’t recognize Oceanside as being a place

sulting hit the nail on the head and we are looking forward to the next process.” At a regular meeting of Qualicum Beach town council Monday night, Coun. Scott Tanner said he was “delighted that term Oceanside is gone.” Coun. Dave WIllie, who is also a member of the association’s board, agreed. “Moving to (the) Oceanside (name) was not one of our finest moments.” Tanner also suggested organizations in the region might now look at a similar name change.

The branding exercise for the tourism association continues, and Sepos said a workshop for businesses, organizations and citizens scheduled for the end of this month (no date set yet) is designed to help people “learn more about how the brand can work for them.” Sepos also explained more about the reasoning behind the name change. “When you search for Oceanside (on the Internet) you don’t come up with anything Parksville Qualicum Beach-related,” he said. “There are places all across the U.S. on both coasts that are named Oceanside.” Sepos also said the Oceanside name “wasn’t really playing up to the strengths Parksville Qualicum Beach has in people’s minds.” “We have found Parksville Qualicum Beach really means something to people.”

ON GUARD FOR THEE: Victoria Irwin with the 296 Sea Cadets distributes poppies on the street in Qualicum Beach recently in the run-up to Remembrance Day.

“Maybe the next step in this branding is to get that Oceanside out and get Parksville Qualicum Beach back in,” said Tanner. The association’s executive director said this week he doesn’t expect his group’s name change will mean the same move for organizations or businesses. The association is focussed on targeting business for this region’s tourism operators from outside our region, province and country. “(Oceanside) is always going to be part of who we are,” said Blaine Sepos. “Locals get it.” Sepos pointed to the City of Nanaimo, which was once known as the Hub City and now is called the Harbour City, but there remains many businesses and organizations still carrying the Hub City moniker. He said that doesn’t seem to be an issue for anyone in that community.

Breakwater work pauses for winter

I N T E R I O R S CUST TOM WINDOW COVERINGS

W

ork has stopped for the winter on an ambitious expansion project for the Beachcomber marina in Na-

noose Bay. However, says contractor Donny Swaluk of Rock Box Aggregates, the project to extend the breakwater in order to expand the moorage at the private facility is well ahead of schedule. “We’ve put in 1,800 truckloads of material in, ” he said. “It’s a pretty massive extension. It’s actually quite By something to Neil be working on Horner top of it when the tide goes out, because it’s 50 feet tall.” Owner Ian Barnes said the first phase of the expansion will see the breakwater going out about 170 feet. “It’s the Department of Fisheries and Oceans closed period, so we won’t be allowed to continue until December,” Barnes said. “However, there’s no way I’m going to open up the end of it in the middle of the winter season, so we likely won’t be able to finish the breakwater until June.” Currently, the marina holds between 82 and 86 vessels, depending on their length and Barnes expects the expansion will create room for nearly half that many again, when the work is completed.

r 8IFO TIF XBT êSTU MBVODIFE JO 1898, RMS Arabia was a modern marvel, the first passenger liner on the planet to boast of a children’s playroom among its many amenities. However, when she went to the bottom on this day in 1916, she was well past her prime. The 500 foot passenger liner had a top speed of 16 knots, making her a sitting duck when a German U-boat spotted her steaming home to England from Freemantle, Australia. RMS Arabia carried 187 passengers, mostly Australians when, about 300 miles off the coast of Malta, a torpedo tore into her hull. The ship went down quickly, killing

Crowshaw, Doris May (nee Larson)

Thanks to Dr. Henderson, and her many caring friends and neighbours in Parksville.

A celebration of life will be held from 2pm-4pm on Sat., November 10th, at the Pacific Rim Room in the Chances / Rimrock Centre, 4890 Cherry Creek Rd., Port Alberni.

Gordon Henry Clarke January 21, 1952 ~ October 22, 2012 Gordon Clarke passed away, peacefully, at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on October 22, 2012. Gordon called Vancouver Island home his entire life. Most of his time was spent in the Coombs area with his family, except when his employment took him to Port Hardy and the North Island. Gordon is survived by his children: Corinne Walsh, Robert Clarke, Terry (Aaron) Kushner, Donald Clarke, and their mother, Brenda Albert; his grandchildren: Kylie, Chase, Layton and Riley; his father, Ken Clarke; siblings: Melvin (Cindy) ClarkeLorraine (Michelle) Lauzon and Barry Clarke; his nieces and nephews: Dannette Krystal, Dannette, Krystal Shawn and Jamie. Jamie Gordon had a lifelong interest in machinery and heavy equipment. He completed an apprenticeship in Heavy duty mechanic, welder and commercial driver around the Central and North Island; Gord was never far from home. On a more personal level, there was hunting, fishing and a lifelong interest in aviation that included getting his pilots license in his teens, building model airplanes and a first generation ultralight aircraft. More recently, he was never far from his camera, making a record of his adventures as his work took him around the Island. Forever in my Heart Gone yet not forgotten, Although we are apart, Your spirit lives within me, Forever in my heart. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in Gordon’s name, to the Canadian Cancer Society. Memorial services will be held at Yates Funeral Chapel, in Parksville, on November 10, 2012 at 1:00pm.

DEATHS

TOOPE, GWENDOLYN RITA It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gwendolyn Rita Toope (Reid) at 81 yrs. Gwen was born in Green’s Harbour, Newfoundland, where she grew up and where she also met the love of her life, Doug. They were married in 1950 and began their life’s adventure. Because of Doug’s work, they resided in many places in Newfoundland: Gander, Corner Brook, Mount Pearl, Pasadena and Springdale. Gwen was always very active in her community with Kinettes, Curling, Dancing and Square Dancing. She and Doug made, and retained, many friends in each town, and when retirement took them to British Columbia in 1985, they returned to Newfoundland almost every summer to visit with family and friends. They lived in Qualicum Beach for a short time and then moved to Parksville where Gwen and Doug became involved in curling, dance, and the Seniors’ Center. In 2001 Gwen and Doug moved to Kelowna. They joined square dancing and became very involved with the Seniors Centers’ dances and activities. Gwen was always instrumental in pursuing new friendships and activities and this kept her and Doug very busy. She loved to walk every day, usually going in excess of 5 km per walk.   She received many curling medals and trophies during her curling years, and she was devoted to watching the Canadian national curling championships, rooting for Newfoundand all the way. Gwen had strong family beliefs, and devoted her life to caring for her husband and raising their children. In November of 2000 Gwen and Doug went on their dream vacation to Australia where they stayed for over 6 weeks enjoying the Gold Coast and many sights. Gwen was predeceased by her two brothers, Gordon (Phyllis), and John (Evelyne), and her two sisters, Jenny (Alex), and Olive (Stan), and finally, by her sweetheart, Doug, in 2005. She is survived by her sister, Shirley (Claude), her two sons, Lloyd (Maggie) and Terry (Janet), and her daughter, Linda (Rick). She is also survived by her three grandchildren, Shaun (Kera), Crista, and Ashley (Michael), two step grandchildren, Rian (Susie), and Melissa, as well as three great-grandchildren, Terra and Marshall (Ashley) and Kai (Shaun), and three step great-grandchildren, Lewis and Levi (Rian) and Alma (Melissa). She passed peacefully away on October 27th with family at her side and holding her hand. She will be missed. Much thanks to all the staff at Hillside Village and to Dr. Goldberg for their enduring care through the ups and downs. A commemoration of Gwen’s (and Doug’s) life will be held with family and friends during the summer of 2013 in Newfoundland. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’ S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129.

GIVE THEM A PAPER ROUTE! A paper route is about so much more than money. These days kids want and need so many things. With a paper route they not only earn the money to buy those things, they also gain a new respect for themselves. They discover a new sense of conďŹ dence, power and control by having their very own job, making their own money and paying for their own games, phones and time with friends. After school Tuesday and Friday. And even better... there are no collections required. It’s so easy to get started... Call Becky

MAJOR MIDGET HOCKEY

Silvertips playing fast paced hockey North Island team with three locals lost 3-2 but provided great entertainment JAMES CL ARKE

sports@pqbnews.com

“Wow, that’s some good hockey, ‘eh son,” one dad commented off the cuff as his boy watched on wide-eyed from behind the glass, and anyone that turned out at Meeker Arena last Sunday to watch the North Island Silvertips take on the Greater Vancouver Canadians knows he was on the mark. “Oh yeah — the speed of BC Major Midget is amazing, and it’s like that in all the games, with all the teams,” Silvertips’ coach Jason Dubyna confirmed after. His squad lost Sunday’s game 3-2, but it was fast-paced, wellplayed wide open entertaining game to be sure, and with very few penalties called. The Silvertips as reported earlier have three Oceanside players in the lineup — D-man David Biagioni (Parksville), forward Trent Bell (Nanoose Bay) and goalie Liam Giroux (QB). Giroux was minding the twine Sunday, and did his bit as he had to ward off a whack of rubber to keep his team in the hunt.  The game was tied 2-2 after

20 minutes and the Canadians scored what would hold up to be the winner midway through the second. The Canadians played a solid defensive game that kept the Silvertips to the outside and they were working the trap so it was tough to get any shots on net. “Liam did really well,” Dubyna said of his local puckstopper. “It was a real strong outing for him.” Liam’s older brother Kiefer plays goal for the VIJHL’s Oceanside Generals, who Dubyna used to play for and also spent a number of years behind the bench for. As for his other Oceansiders, Biagioni, who Dubyna describes  “as a solid stay-at-home D-man and one of our go-to guys on the penalty kill,” was out of the lineup with an upper body injury, “and Bell was flying. “Trent’s one of our more physical forwards — he’s one of the guys we rely on to set the tone for our physical play.” BC Major Midget is comprised primarily of 15 and 16 year olds; this is Bell’s second season on the team; he played up as an underage last year and

is already being looked at to lead said Dubyna. In the meantime, it’s still early in the 40 game regular season, but the Silvertips have their work cut out for them sitting eighth in the 11-team BC Major Midget League at 4-7-1. With the win the Canadians took over seventh

place from the Silvertips at 5-6-1. At press time The Vancouver Giants lead the high performance league at 11-0-1 with the Caribou Cougars (11-3-0) and Okanagan Rockets (9-2-1) are on their heels in second and third. The top eight teams make the playoffs. The Silvertips have more

game this year at Meeker Arena, in December. To follow the Silvertips and the BC Major Midget League go to www.bchockey.net. GAME ON: The Silvertips are in Burnaby this weekend for a two game set against the North West Giants.

Whalers on a mission at North Islands After a very busy weekend, local volleyball team headed to Nanaimo for finals JAMES CL ARKE

sports@pqbnews.com

Ballenas Secondary School’s senior boys volleyball team is on a mission this year, and so far that mission — to compete with the top teams in the province come playoff time — certainly looks possible. The Whalers are on the courts in Nanaimo Thursday and Friday for their North Island finals (scores unavailable at press time) feeling good about their game after locking up their third straight tournament win to go along with a second place finish last month. There is no league play in BC High

School Sr. Boys volleyball and teams prepare for their respective playoffs through a short but busy tournament schedule. Last Friday and Saturday they took first at a tourney in Courtenay. Two weeks ago at Wellington Secondary tourney the Whalers played six, count’em six, matches in one day (Oct. 20) and ended up beating Dover Bay in the final wining the first set 34-32, losing the second 25-22 and taking the third 15-8. “Probably the longest one I’ve been involved with its pretty rare. It was pretty exciting,” said BSS teacher/coach Daryl Britz. The Whalers opened their preseason

back in September with a second place finish at the VIU Mariners tourney. On Oct. 26-27 at the second annual sixteam Lambrick Park Lions’ Cup, the Whalers opened the tourney with wins over Dover and Claremont. They beat the Roadrunners from Reynolds Saturday morning then hammered the host team that afternoon. The Whalers beat Oak Bay three straight to lock it up. “It was pretty cool,” said Britz. The Whalers were led by captain Brad Harvey and power hitter Kendal Wuerch who led the tournament in kills, and Rob-

ert Tickell who quarterbacked the offence. Also earning props for their play on the front row were Cole Bennett and Colson Schneider. “We’re definitely starting to round into form at the right time,” said Britz, adding “I think we can still get better, but it’s coming together and I think we’ll be able to compete with the best teams in the province, which is our goal.” GAME ON: The Whalers were back at it for real on Thursday battling it out at the  four-team North Island finals at Dover in Nanaimo. Results unavailable at deadline — stay tuned.

the campaign with an overall record of 19-3, and in two of those losses Kwalikum outplayed their opponents “badly, we just didn’t convert on our chances, and that’s how you learn how important it is to bury them. “We had a very strong season,” said Gayton. “You talk to the other coaches. Every other coach thought we were going and I think thats what hurts most but at the end of the day I was really pleased with how the boys played and how they handled themselves — they represented KSS and Qualicum very well.” Carihi beat SMU in the final and Gulf Islands grabbed the third and final berth.

A hard-luck loss to the Blue Devils cost the Kondors in Nanaimo this week as they were bumped from the BC’s for the first time in six years. In action at Merle Logan Field as part of the eight-team AA Sr. Boys Island finals Nov. 6-7, the Kondors won two of their three games in their pool, but so did the other two teams they were tied with at the end of round robin play which put them fourth — only the top three teams advance to the provincial finals. “You know how pool play works,” KSS head coach Butch Gayton surmised after.

played a defensive system for the first 55 minutes of the game, we frustrated them, and then we attacked them in the last 10. We did the old rope-a-dope and it worked to a tee. It was great.” Back at it at 8 a.m. Wednesday the Kondors beat the Eagles from Woodlands 3-2, “and that was it, By the goal differential we finished second in our pool and only the top two advance.” “We had to win our last game so we did what we had to do, but to watch and listen to the other game knowing we only needed one more goal, that was tough.” The disappointment aside, Gayton was quick to make the point his squad finished

“Every game, every goal is important and we put ourselves behind the eight-ball by losing to an SMU team we should have buried.” The Kondors “dominated” that opening game against SMU but came up on the short end of a 2-0 final. Kwalikum rebounded in game two Tuesday, a must-win against the dreaded Gulf Islands Scorpions. Deadlocked in a scoreless tie, Ben Robson was hauled down in the box and stroked home the ensuing penalty kick with under five minutes remaining for the winner. “That was our best game of the season,” said Gayton, explaining “they’re stronger than us in almost every position, but we

YOUTH LEAGUE ACTION

Buccaneers blitzed at home U12 and U14 teams both go down in hard play JAMES CL ARKE

sports@pqbnews.com

The Buccaneers were back up and running at Springwood Park last Sunday, but home field wasn’t much of an advantage on this day as both teams were handed lopsided losses by the visitors. The Tier 2 U14 ‘Bucs were up first and in tough against Tier 1 Vic Field, losing both their games but battling hard; likewise for the U12s who dropped both their games to the Mid Island Thunder. “I think there is a bit of nerves when you play a Tier 1 team,” said U14 ‘Bucs team manager Robyn Thompson, adding “things are looking up though as the team with all its newer players is starting to ‘click.” “We played them end to end, trading goals for the first half of the first game (however) our squad was missing a few players which made it hard to keep up to them,” U12 head coach John Shafi, who also assists on the U14

The U14s Buccaneers are currently sitting seventh in the eight team Vancouver Island Youth Field Lacrosse League (which combines Tier 1 and Tier 2 teams over the regular season then separates them come playoffs) at 1-5, while the   U12 ‘Bucs are currently fourth in their seven-team league at 2-4. GAME ON  The U12 Buccaneers are back home at Springwood Park Nov. 18 for a two-game set against Vic Field 1 (games go at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.).  The U14 Bucs are in Victoria that day for two games against Vic Field 2.
