Deal struck to sell Caps Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

T

he Cowichan Valley Capitals will have a new owner at season’s end. Caps’ majority owner Stew Gordon revealed Tuesday he reached an agreement Monday afternoon to sell the team. The buyer is “not local,’’ he said. The rumour mill had been working overtime around Cowichan Arena about the status of the B.C. Hockey League club. “It was put out there a little bit and a person approached me right away,’’ said Gordon. “It’s not 100 per cent signed up. It’s all hand shake and that kind of stuff.’’ The buyer is not being identi¿ed at this time. Gordon earlier Stew Gordon: quashed one ruit’s time mour about former National Hockey League player Cliff Ronning buying the team, calling it “untrue.’’ Gordon ¿rst bought shares in the Caps three years ago. He became the majority owner of the club in March of 2011. Gordon cited time constraints as one of the main reasons he decided to sell the team, with his time stretched between the Gordon ‘N’ Gordon Interiors business he runs in Victoria and family matters. He was also the longtime owner of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s Kerry Park Islanders before selling the club in December to Mark and Denika Osmond, owners of the Black Swan Pub in Shawnigan Lake. “We did great with the Islanders,’’ said Gordon. “Once again, I didn’t pay enough attention to it.’’ The Caps are struggling on the ice this season with the worst record in the BCHL and Gordon hopes someone else can invest more time in the team. “It’s time to move on,’’ he said.

Duncan Garage Showroom patrons make their way across the railroad tracks on a foggy Monday night. While morning fog isn’t unusual for the Duncan area this time of year, the dense fog blanketed the valley all day Monday was unusual, observers say.

Fog foils Åights, and slows ferries across Cowichan Poised to lift: Cotton-like conditions to melt in rain forecast for today Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

T

his week’s fog bank grounded air Àights in and out of Cowichan, slowed some ferries, and iced roads while the pea soup is forecast to lift with Wednesday rain, of¿cials said. “Usually when we get rain, it tends to burn off thick fog,” Chris Carss, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada, said of the cotton-like clouds that covered much of Cowichan Sunday and Monday. “We’ve been in and out of thick fog, and that hasn’t been restricted to any

time of the day. “It’s an inversion with a pool of cold air trapped near ground level, with warm air on top.” The inversion meant subversion for Harbour Air’s seaplane Àights servicing Maple Bay and other island docks. “We’ve been grounded for three days,” executive vice-president Randy Wright said Tuesday. “We grounded 50 Àights coastwide.” The white bog also smothered Àights at Victoria and Vancouver airports, he noted. “We’ve been doing this for 30 years, and safety is number one. Mother Nature can throw you a curve ball.” She tossed delays at BC Ferries’ crafts serving some Gulf islands and the mainland. “We took some traf¿c away from the airports,” said Ferries’ spokeswoman

Deborah Marshall. Monday runs between Chemainus,Thetis and Kuper islands; the Coastal Celebration serving Tswassen and Schwartz Bay; and the Queen of Cowichan between Horseshoe Bay and Departure Bay saw delays of about 10 minutes. But that time was eventually recovered, she explained. “Our bridge teams are highly aware of other vessels in the area. “With extremely thick fog, ferries may run slower. We have radar and that certainly helps. It also helps when drivers reduce speed, noted Leon Bohmer of highways contractor Mainroad South Island. While police reported no fog-related wrecks by press time, the misty chowder caused some slick, black ice on stretches of Cowichan roads. Carss said when mercury moves just

below freezing at night “we get what’s called freezing fog, and black ice is one thing you get with it.” Mainroad fought it by reapplying its salt solution. “We use a liquid-brine, anti-icing material, and the fog dissipates that,” Bohmer explained of higher moisturedilution rates, forcing reapplication in some areas. Still, while Duncan was blanketed, Lake Cowichan and the Malahat were mostly clear, he reported. Dense fog hits the valley about once a year, Bohmer added, while Carss called the condition more rare. “The last time I remember fog conditions like this was December 1999, and it went on for a week,” said Carss. “While Mount Prevost was sunny and mild, we were damp and cold at ground level. These fog bowls come with high- pressure weather.” Follow us on

Skies clear, burning ban lifted A recent valley-wide open-burning ban has been lifted by the environment ministry. Staff pulled the restrictions Thursday after imposing the ban Jan. 14. “Air quality has improved in the Cowichan Valley due to a change in weather conditions,” a ministry release says.

Open burning may now be done without a permit, or approval from the ministry, provided the activity complies with the Open- Burning Smoke-Control Regulation of the Environmental Management Act, and with any restrictions by other agencies, such as municipalburning bylaws, staff says.

For more, visit bcairquality.ca. Environment Canada’s venting index is available by calling 888-281-2992 daily. Also call the environment ministry at 250-751-3171, or the Vancouver Island Health Authority at 250-739-6303.

manslaughter case involving the death of south Cowichan’s Tyler Noble heads to trial Oct. 15. Victoria News staff says defense counsel Peter Firestone appeared on behalf of his client, Brandon Huth, in Victoria court Jan. 16, to set a trial date for the alleged November 2011 manslaughter

of Noble. Seven days of trial time has been booked. Huth was not present in court Wednesday. Noble, 20, died from injuries he suffered after allegedly being assaulted at the downtown Victoria corner of Douglas and View streets on Nov. 26, 2011. Huth, then 24, of Victoria, has been

Crown counsel, Neil MacKenzie, declined to comment about the case, but said a manslaughter conviction could carry a penalty of life in prison. — Peter W. Rusland

big-bang theory about south-end road blasting has proven correct. John Newton of Timberstone Roadbuilding said Tuesday blasting in the Mines Road area of Cobble Hill started about a month ago, and will continue for about the same timespan. That news likely answers recent calls to the News Leader Pictorial, and to police, about where the vibrating blasts were coming from in recent weeks. “We’re putting some roads in for logging,” Newton said yesterday of the job for Island Timberlands. Roadwork is along Mines Road — off Riverside Road — and in the Mines 28 area. Work will eventually reach the Howie Road area. “It’s toe rock and ditch rock,” Newton explained, warning folks to obey danger signs posted, and be cautious of logging trucks hauling timber on

public roads. “We’re not responsible (for injury),” he said, noting logging rigs had to stop recently after spooking horses ridden by two women. Blasting sounds carried outside the work site borders and sparked several theories. Brian Kean, a retired explosives expert with Cobble Hill Blasting heard them, and dismissed notions the sound may be coming from air force jets from Comox base busting the sound barrier.. “They’re incredibly loud. This is de¿nitely blasting, not con¿ned to a hole,” the 31-year dynamite veteran said of the technique that’s inside acceptable practices. “It’s a nuisance. It’s rattled my windows on several occasions, and also those of some of my neighbours.” Janet Bell, a resident of Shawnigan Lake’s Burnham Park, was among several folks who reported the pounding heard once everyday, for six days in a row, between 2:30 and 4 p.m. RCMP Const. Mike Furlong with Shawnigan Lake’s of¿ce, said he’d heard the bangs too, but couldn’t pinpoint where the noise — reported to his detachment — came from.

he Halalt First Nation is now taking its Chemainus River aquifer water-rights case to Canada’s highest court. Dissatis¿ed with November’s B.C. Court of Appeal ruling that allowed North Cowichan to resume pumping water from the aquifer to the Chemainus area, the Halalt is asking the Supreme Court of Canada to settle legal arguments about ownership of the river’s aquifer wells. News of Halalt leaders ¿ling a leave to appeal application with Ottawa’s high court appears in the band’s Jan. 21 press release. “Halalt lawyer William Andrews said the Supreme Court has been asked to address two key legal issues: who owns

the groundwater under the reserve and Aboriginal-title lands; and where a First Nation asserts both Aboriginal rights and title, can the Crown do its consultation based only on the rights, and not the title?” Halalt’s release reads. Those questions spring from the province’s November appeal that set aside a 2011 B.C. Supreme Court ruling that stopped municipal water pumping until Victoria held proper project consultation with the Halalt. The Halalt had originally successfully argued the band was not adequately consulted in the wells project, which created a new water supply for Chemainus. Chief James Thomas said his people see themselves as river’s stewards, and believed the Supreme Court of Canada appeal will be of national importance.

Two-car Highway 18 crash sends two to hospital

T

wo people were sent to hospital, and another charged, after Thursday’s two-vehicle crash on Highway 18 at Somenos Road, police say. Names of folks involved have not been released. At 12:27 p.m., North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP were called about

the collision. They reported a green Hyundai Sonata had stopped at the northbound stop sign at Hwy. 18, Cpl. Jon Stuart says in a release. A grey Chrysler Neon was headed east on the highway when the Hyundai pulled out and was hit on the driver’s side by the Neon. “Both vehicles were spun around

by the impact. Two people in the green Hyundai were taken to hospital for examination, with minor injuries,â€? said Stuart. “The driver of the Hyundai has been charged under the Motor Vehicle Act. Highway 18 was reduced to single lane alternating trafÂżc for about an hour.â€? — Peter W. Rusland

Here’s to a view we all should be able to enjoy Mount Prevost: the plan to make an accessible park at the summit is a good one

T

wo things in particular stand out about the summit of Mount Prevost: the stunning panaromic view it offers of our community and beyond; and the war memorial cairn standing starkly against the skyline. It’s sad so many people who help build this community, or whose families made the sacri¿ce marked by the cairn, are unable to enjoy either. The issue is access and it is one that can and should be recti¿ed. That’s why North Cowichan’s decision to support a drive to turn the summit into Let’s see if the a safe and accessible municipal park is a good one. community North Cowichan’s decision to put the gets behind onus on the community to rally support and funding for the project is correct. this Tax dollars are stretched too far already; North Cowichan’s role should be land, staff time for planning, equipment use, maintenance and, in certain instances, matching capital funding. It should be up to the people on the street, the people who will ultimately enjoy the new park, to show they want it through fundraising and donations. Talk of a helicopter landing pad seems, on the surface at least, like pure overkill — better access and increased preservation should be the ultimate goals here. A pad, while certainly providing access, shouldn’t come at the expense of trees, or other park amenities. But steps to protect the view and the greenspace should be supported by most, and certainly safety improvements would be as well. There will be dectractors: people are already using Prevost as their personal playground for activities that may ultimately suffer and have to move elsewhere if accessibility is increased. But the fact is the peak is not their backyard and it is not remote. It’s a view we all should enjoy.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like We’re not sure if the environmental movement gets less attention now because the media is a fickle creature, or because its main point has largely been made. Either way, we’re happy for projects like the Cowichan Environment Commission’s youth video contest. It raises awareness and engages the most important demographic in this issue: the young.

There’s no way the two top-seeded teams, No. 1 Cowichan and No. 2 Bays United Liquor Plus, should be facing each other in the first round of soccer’s Jackson Cup. It not only knocks a top contender out immediately and weakens the draw for subsequent rounds, it also means the loser will have a difficult time trying to qualify for Provincial Cup play — and both teams deserve to be there.

Sexuality an issue Cowichan needs to talk about Aaron Bichard

News Leader Pictorial

W

hen it comes to bringing issues to the spotlight, Hollywood can’t be beat. At the recent Golden Globe Awards, 50-year-old acting virtuoso Jodie Foster gave a heartfelt speech alluding to her sexuality. And while her acceptance speech of the Cecil B. DeMille Award left many of us confused as to what she was actually saying, her rambling, listing narrative sparked a discussion that needed to be sparked. Does a celebrity who identi¿es as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, questioning or two-spirited have the responsibility to publicly stand up and make a loud and proud proclamation, in the hopes those less famous will be given the courage to do the same? I don’t think celebrity has anything to do with it — I think we all have responsibilities based on being human. Let’s be clear: Foster is a 47-year Hollywood

veteran and international legend, who happens to be a lesbian mother of two; I am a childless recyclist-cum-columnist, living a common-law, opposite-sex relationship in a tiny town with a heck of a lot of rain and not a heck of a lot of rainbows. We have little in common. But I think we both have the responsibility to do what is in our power to support the rights of individuals to be who they are. For a long, long time I’ve sat back, hoping that because other peoples’ sexual or gender identity isn’t of a personal concern to me, that others would feel the same. I wrongly worried that if we pushed ahead with conversations about acceptance of LGBTQ2S, and the rights of people to identify themselves as themselves, we would be making an issue out of a non-issue; we would be provoking those who are vehemently opposed to such individual rights to rise up and intensify their discriminatory efforts. I also wondered about my own credentials in being vocal. As a heterosexual male, who am I to talk about the intricacies of being LGBTQ2S? Who am I to comment on what life is like and

what change is needed? The answer, I think, to those questions is that I am a person. My opinions are credible because I have a conscience, a desire to live in an inclusive community, and a voice. I may never have faced the discrimination LGBTQ2S folks have faced here in Cowichan, but I have noticed the lack of evidence that our community is, indeed, inclusive. Services, for one, are few and far between. Unlike in other school districts, here in SD79 there is a distinct shortage of Gay Straight Alliance clubs for youth. We are fortunate to have the local GSA run out of Community Options Society, but the one location is hardly enough. And youth are the ones we need to be focused on. According to the 2009 Canadian Policy Research Network’s report for B.C. Housing, statistics from the 2007 McCreary Centre Society’s study show that one in ¿ve street youth in B.C. self-identify as being either gay, lesbian or bi-sexual, compared to only three percent of the general population in schools. Those statistics lead to the questions of what is

COWICHAN LEADERS happening to force these kids on to the streets, and what can the rest of the population do to stop this? One step is to become educated on using inclusive language and changing those previously held myths around sexual and gender identity. Another is to be vocal, be visible and be vigilant in your advocacy. Put up a rainbow sticker in your window. Don’t stand by if you hear a homophobic joke — interrupt and explain why discrimination is hurtful. Tell people to stop using “gay” as a pejorative. And, most importantly, be an ally by practising non-discrimination in everyday life. Until everyone agrees we all have the right to be individuals and acceptance is the norm, this needs to continue to be a public conversation. We can’t keep quiet..

Community groups need a bigger role in marsh management

Idle No More about protecting all our environment

Dear editor As one of the organizers of the Jan. 13 Cowichan Idle No More event and as a First Nations person in Canada I wish to express my concern on how some of the media has put a negative focus on our First Nations people on the Idle No More movement. This movement is here today because of our concern for the future of our children. Canadians need to understand there has been a Bill C-45 that the Conservative government has passed and this means a lot of lakes and waters that were protected are no longer protected. They can now build a pipeline through our lands and waters. The media needs to educate the public that Idle No More is here today because the Stephen Harper government has ignored the urgent calls and letters to protest these omnibus bills the Harper government has passed. The people of Canada need to wake up and ask each other “do we really want another pipeline and oil tankers going through our lands and waters?” And “do you want to pay the price when one of those pipelines or oil tankers spill and poison our lands and waters?” These Idle No More protests are for the future of our children, and this is not just a Native thing. It involves everyone who cares about the environment. Sheila Johnny

In my opinion: Let’s continue progress underway around Somenos

T

he Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society is entering its 24th year. No longer is Somenos Marsh seen as a swamp. It is now recognized as a place to raise young salmon, a place to store water during Àood season and a place that ¿lters old water through peat to recharge the aquifer with the pure water we love here. Somenos is now also known as a home or refuge for almost 250 species of birds, as well as a signi¿cant resting place for birds on their migrations. The green corridor from Mount Prevost and Mount Richards is an intact path through Somenos to the Cowichan Estuary for almost all our big game species. The dream of a protected, rich and healthy Andrew Leong/¿le Demonstrators rally during the Jan. 13 Idle No More event in Duncan.

ramatic doesn’t even begin to describe efforts made by Cowichan Intercultural Society’s leadership group in its ¿rst-place winning environmental video. They conclude the short clip on the evils of bottled water with students dropping like Àies from dehydration. And on top of that the video comes to an end with a slow-death soliloquy from Frances Kelsey student Ashton Arden. Folks at the Cowichan Valley Regional District chose the Multi-

cultural Leadership group’s video as their top choice in the group entry as part of their Environment Commission’s annual youth video contest on the environment. Awards as well as cash prizes were handed out last week. “They were all fabulous,” Environment Commission chair Gerry Giles said. Giles sat on the panel of judges who watched the videos. “Every single one of them carried a very important message, and so it was a really dif¿cult decision.” “We were very excited to learn that we had won,” project coordinator Lori Austein said after hearing the news last week. “And they were very excited to

do the video.”” The group brainstormed several ideas with thee help of Cowichan munity’s Michelle Green Community’s Staples and CIS member Linda McDaniels. “It pretty quickly became apparent their interest was in water,” Austein explained. Grade 12 student Arden was instrumental in inspiring the younger students to take part in the video. “He was very involved with pulling the grand idea together,” Austein said. And he’s also had experience acting too, she added. “It just comes naturally to him.” The group, that meets every Thursday, also spent time researching water consumption. “It was fun and a very great way to get educated on the subject,” Austein said. They shot the video, which they dubbed ‘What if?’ in one Thursday session and ran through their bit only a couple times. “I’m not the most technical person and I didn’t know how much battery they had left on the video camera, so I told them they might not have a lot of time,” Austein said. And the idea tossed out by the group at the beginning of their skit, that plastic water bottles should be banned in the region, is a worthy one, agreed Giles, comparing it to that of Bench Elementary School’s push to ban plastic bags and the results they saw from the Thrifty Foods ban. “So that impetus to change practices is always there and it’s always better if you can do it with voluntary actions instead of trying to legislate it,” Giles said, noting it’s very much about people’s personal choices too. The group won $700 from the CVRD but have yet to decide what they’re going to do with the dough. “I’m hoping one of their options and their choice is to attend what’s called the Inclusive Leadership Adventure,” Austein said, adding the three- to fourday event held in February at the Cowichan Lake Education Centre based on garnering leadership skills is not set in stone.

There are speci¿c sessions for children up to two years old as well. “It is a well-recognized and respected educational program that returns to tradition by using rhymes, songs, and storytelling as a base for enriching parent-child lives and relationships,” a poster for the program reads. “No toys, just parent and child having fun and interacting together.” Sessions start with the same song, Roly Poly, Brown noted, and often include several of the songs on a regular basis, with only a couple new ones thrown in the mix, which works well, as children thrive on repetition and routine. “It’s sort of a comforting thing too,” Brown said, of the songs that become so familiar moms often use them to sort out negative situations like

A Family in Focus Meet: Sheila and Richard Badman In 2008, we moved from ToďŹ no to Maple Bay after living on our sailboat one summer cruising through the northern and southern gulf islands. We both work at home on our magazine, the Cowichan Valley Voice and Richard manages an online domain and web services business. We have twin boys aged 3 1/2. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your strategy for balancing work and family? We work all the time. We plan a few little getaways, camping, skiing, visits to ToďŹ no or the Gulf Islands throughout the year. It ensures that family time is wholly and completely family time without work, phone calls or emails getting in the way. It keeps us strong and close. Tell us about a big parenting challenge you faced and how you solved it? We were both self-employed with no family close by. We had to work to provide for our young twins but taking care of twins literally took both of us full-time every day! Richard discovered the Child Care Resource Referral who helped us ďŹ nd a wonderful daycare for the boys when they were about a year old. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your go-to activity for keeping the kids occupied? Paper, scissors, crayons and glue sticks! If the weather is good, a walk to the beach is always a good bet for hours of fun. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most laugh-out-loud thing your kids ever said or did? At their daycare, while the other children were serving the teachers tea and cookies at playtime, one of our boys began offering them wine. Name a local resource every parent needs to know about. Mother Goose! What a wonderful program to meet new friends and learn songs and games. We still sing many of the songs. What do you and/or your partner do to make time for yourself? After weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put the children to bed, ďŹ nished up with our emails, washed the dishes and cleaned the kitchen we always try to make time to sit on the couch with each other even if it is just for 1/2 an hour. The best advice another parent ever gave you? After three years of having to stay with the boys at bedtime until they fell asleep, a good friend suggested letting the kids know, after the nighttime routine of story, blessings and singing, we have chores to do, but will check on them in three minutes. We always came back in three minutes to check on them. Usually by the second check in, they are asleep.

Music in the Lake returns with encore performances

ON STAGE

Cowichan Lake’s musical calendar for 2013 begins with a pair of encore performances. For his winter program, Music in the Lake coordinator David Lowther is excited to be bringing back two female acts that have had rave reviews from Lake Cowichan audiences in the past. On Jan. 25, Lake Cowichan’s lower Centen-

nial Community Hall will be rocking with the earthy, gritty, bluesy sound of Vancouver artist Kate Reid. “I first saw Kate perform three years ago when we were both playing the Islands Folk Festival,” Lowther told the Gazette. “She blew me away with the quality of her songwriting, performance and especially the relevance of her work.”

Biographical notes on her website define Reid as “a woman who breaks the stereotypes and makes us all think as well as laugh.” Performance times are at 7 p.m. and ticket prices are $5 per person. In February, Music in the Lake hosts The Sweet Lowdown (left), an acoustic roots trio from Victoria.

Fools offers golden nuggets about shirking shackles of stupidity Review: Noisy Mime troupe’s first valley outing uses Neil Simon’s satire to show how education adds real meaning to life Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

N

oisy Mime Theatre Company clanked into Cowichan with Friday’s premiere production of Neil Simon’s farcistential

play, Fools. A good time was had by Mime’s actors, and their sparse Mercury Theatre crowd. But the somewhat lengthy show displayed the new local troupe’s dedication to artistic growth, and plumbing personal potential. It helped having a comically timeless script questioning none other than the real purpose of life. Director Michael Paylor’s cast careered into Simon’s rollicking satire about social stupidity, and how humanity can rise above it by daring to learn, not simply accepting our lot in life. The trick is being an eagle that keeps its wits when among turkeys — then helping those turkeys reach loftier intellectual heights. Such was the task of teacher Leon Tolchinsky (Cameron Mackenzie, who Àubbed a few lines) sent to the isolated Russian village of Kulvenchicov for classroom duty. But Leon found a loveless village of idiots who, he learned, were under a curse of stupidity. That spell could only be lifted if Leon educated village gal Sophie (Leigh Fryling), or if self-centered

Count Gregor (Sarah Needles), or his relative, married Sophie by a looming deadline. Teachers failed before Leon, then left the dozy burg. The difference with Leon was his love for Sophie. Also his resolve that folks are only stupid if they choose to be, especially if submitting to rule under fear peddled by the cad count. “Ignorance is a debilitating afÀiction,” stated Leon. But showing villagers how to ask questions, and question answers, was Leon’s chisel into ignorance’s tough shell. Tough indeed. Loss of memory, logic, manners and curiosity cursed the unwitting Kulvenchicovites, such as Yenchna the Vendor (Janet Campbell) who sold Àowers as ¿sh because ¿sh were unavailable, then later displayed a new way to deliver milk. Dr. Zubritsky (Dave McRae) and wife Lenya (Rosalind Adams) admitted they’re incapable of thinking. Daughter Sophie was just as dense. Peter W.

SANDS of DUNCAN 250-746-5212 BURNS, Thomas Garnet It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Col (ret.) Thomas Garnet Burns, CD, on January 14, 2013, in Duncan, B.C. Tom passed away peacefully, at home, surrounded by his loving family. Tom was born in Montreal, Que. on December 14, 1951. He is predeceased by his parents Frederick William Burns and Thelma Esmee Burns (nee St Hill). A keen sportsman, Tom enjoyed such activities as skiing, golf, running, baseball and football. However, his most favorite pastime was â&#x20AC;&#x153;playing armyâ&#x20AC;? which he turned into a very successful and distinguished avocation. Beginning in 1973, Tom joined the Navy as an OfďŹ cer Cadet but released in 1975. In 1979, he joined 748 Communications Troop in Nanaimo, B.C. as a 2nd Lt. In June 1981 he was promoted to Lt,. and in February 1982 he became the OfďŹ cer Commanding 748 Comm. Tp. In September 1986, Tom joined The Canadian Scottish Regiment (Princess Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) ultimately rising to become the Commanding OfďŹ cer in December 1996, a position he held and cherished until 1999. Promoted to Colonel in 2002 Tom took command of 39 Canadian Brigade Group. Tom retired from the Reserve Army in 2007 due to his diagnosis with Multiple Myeloma in 2006. Tom soldiered on through two stem cell transplants, ultimately succumbing to this cancer. In civilian life, Tom was a banker since 1980 with the Bank of Montreal and Island Savings Credit Union. He successfully managed branches all over Vancouver Island for both banks and had success at transitioning BMO with technology changes. It was with great pride that Tom earned and received his Bachelor of Commerce Degree at Royal Roads University in 2010. Tom is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Sylvia (nee Choat) and his three children: Colin (Brandi), Robin (Andrew), Graham (Amanda) and his two adored grandchildren: Tyler and Kayla Burns. He is also survived by his only sibling, Cathy Keller (Doug), and his four nephews also survive him: Ryan, Michael, Russell, and Joseph. Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smart and witty sense of humour and excellent leadership skills will be greatly missed by all those who were blessed to have met him. A service at Christchurch Cathedral, 930 Burdett Ave, Victoria will be held on Thursday 24 January 2013 at 11 am. Afterwards the family also welcomes guests to attend a reception from 1 pm at the Bay St Armory, 713 Bay St, Victoria.

KNOTT, Barbara January 16,1946 - January 19,2013 Barb was born in Montreal, Quebec. She is predeceased by her parents Harvey and Bea Coulter and inlaws Wally and Bea Knott. She is survived by her husband Gordy, son Randy (Shelley), daughter Shannon (Scott) and their children Anna and Jett, brother Tom (Maureen) Coulter and sister Brenda (Bill) Smith and their extended families, halfbrother Gary (Debbie) Chartier and half-sister Nancy (Bruce) Uptigrove, Brother-in-law Ted (Sharon) Knott and brother-in-law Doug (Gerrie) Knott and their extended families. Barb will be forever remembered by her love of family and friends. She loved dinners and get-togethers with family and friends. Never was there a day when Barb said â&#x20AC;&#x153;NOâ&#x20AC;? to a new adventure. Whether it was traveling with her husband Gordy or gathering with friends. Barbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for volunteering in our community was evident. Just to name a few: The United Church - treasurer, Great Lake Walk, Lake Days, B.C. Cancer Foundation, Heart and Stroke Foundation, Cowichan Lake Skating Club and Cowichan Lake Minor Hockey Association was so much a part of her life. Barb worked at the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena for 25 plus years. She was lucky in life to ďŹ nd the job she loved working at. Never did she miss a sporting event that Hound or Shan were in. She also curled and skated on the local Precision Team. The arena was an important part of her life and on her last day on the job they surprised her by letting her take the Zamboni out for a spin around the ice. A memory she always treasured. When her granddaughter Anna was born, July 28, 2010, her life changed for the better. Then Annaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth was followed by grandson Jett being born on May 3, 2012. Celebrating 45 years together with her â&#x20AC;&#x153;ROCKâ&#x20AC;?, Gordy, was something she was so proud of. The family would like to thank all their family and friends for their love and support during Barbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illness and especially would like to thank Dr. Pewarchuk, Dr. Kerswell and the great caring staff at the Cowichan District Hospital. A Celebration of Barbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life will be held on Saturday, January 26 at 1:00 p.m. at the Lake Cowichan Centennial Hall, 309 South Shore Road, Lake Cowichan, B.C. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers donations can be made to the Cancer Society. FIRST MEMORIAL FUNERAL SERVICES

Halftime rally a good sign

Girls’ basketball: T-Birds turn the tables with a great team effort Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

T

he ability to put a bad game out of its system quickly is a good thing for the Cowichan Thunderbird girls’ basketball team. The T-Birds expected to win last Tuesday in Campbell River against Carihi but it didn’t go their way in a six-point loss. A different team returned to action Thursday at Cowichan Secondary School and defeated Port Alberni 57-55 after trailing 34-28 at halftime. Allie White scored the winning points on foul shots in the last minute. “Every one of the girls who played gave all they had as they had beaten us earlier in the year,’’ noted T-Birds’ co-coach Jim Nugent. “We have played three close games this year and lost the previous two so it was nice to win this one.’’

Andrew Leong

Casual approach is taken by Katie Porter of Cowichan against the defence of Julia Hudson of Alberni Thursday during a 57-55 Cowichan win.

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 25

Lowly Salt Spring holds Div. 1 leading Cowichan to a tie Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

C

owichan LMG Pringle is in Âżrst place and Salt Spring Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tied for last in the Vancouver Island Soccer Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Div. 1 standings. But that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean a meeting between the teams was a foregone conclusion, especially on Salt Spring Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home Âżeld where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a challenge for visitors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no matter what the standings.

The

In fact, Salt Spring did it again Saturday in the return to league play for the Âżrst time in 2013, earning a point by holding Cowichan scoreless. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their worst loss at home is 1-0,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Cowichan coach Glen Martin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tied Nanaimo, they tied us, they only lost 1-0 to Gordon Head and Vic West.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Âżeld is the great equalizer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small bouncy grass Âżeld, just a hard Âżeld to play on,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Martin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not conducive to some real good soccer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge home-Âżeld advantage for them.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cowichan came out strong, hitting the crossbar

in the Âżrst minute and having another goal called back on an offside. Kevin Jones also swore one of his shots crossed the line, but the referee didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it that way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was one of those frustrating days and the clock ticked down fast, hard-tackling and mean,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Martin said. He added Cowichanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dan Cato got stomped in the face during the heated action. Cowichan was without the Arnett brothers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chris and Matt â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but called up Div. 2 players Jose Muro and Steven Zorich in their place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No excuse there, we had enough bodies,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said

Martin. It was the Âżrst tie of the season for 12-1-1 Cowichan. Salt Spring is now 1-10-3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like a loss to us,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Martin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were pushing really hard at the end to win it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They just kick it out and tackle hard and slow the game down. Give them credit. They work hard.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cowichan has just eight goals against this season, the same as last season at this point. But goal production is down from 50 to 40. Cowichan heads to Nanaimo Saturday for a game against a United squad sporting a 9-5-1 record.

he only 20-year-old left in the Cowichan Valley Capitals’ lineup returned from injury, but isn’t back to peak form just yet and the team suffered a familiar fate in two weekend B.C. Hockey League games. Mikael Jung’s presence should give the young Caps a big boost during the last two months of the season. The Caps are working hard, but still not getting the results as evidenced by a 4-2 loss to the Grizzlies in Victoria Friday and a 3-1 defeat against the Vernon Vipers at Cowichan Arena Saturday night. “We have a heckuva time scoring,’’ said Caps’ head coach Jim Ingram. “We had our opportunities but don’t put pucks in the net. “For as little as we try to give up, we generate little.’’

The players are clearly frustrated but doing their best to do what it takes for some positive results. “They’re staying with it,’’ said Ingram. “They’re handling that part well. We’ve stayed in good shape in terms of injuries, other than Mikael Jung. They want to do everything we’re asking them to do.’’ At Victoria, the Caps had their best period in the second, playing the Grizzlies even 1-1 on a goal by Hayden-James Berra and enjoying a 10-7 edge in shots. “The ¿rst and third (periods), we turned a lot of pucks over,’’ said Ingram. “No surprise, when we don’t turn pucks over, we score and keep the game close.’’ Kyle Horsman also scored for the Caps in that game. Against Vernon, it was an even game with both teams directing 31 shots at the net. But the Caps’ inability to ¿nish was the story again, with the only goal coming from Jamie

Scott Webber Cowichan Valley Midget Tier 1 Capitals’ head coach Aaron Spotts counts on Scott Webber in many different situations. That’s because Webber, who turns 18 on Jan. 31 and graduated a year early from Cowichan Secondary School, is one of the most versatile forwards on his hockey club. “He’s both power play and penalty killing this year and he’s kind of played from our top line all the way down to our third line role,’’ said Spotts. “He’s just one of those players you can kind of find a spot for him anywhere.’’ Webber is a third-year midget player, having played the previous two seasons at the Midget B level. “I’m finally one of the bigger players,’’ he said. “I’ve put a lot of height on in the last year.’’ Webber played some hockey at the A level in his second year of peewee. Otherwise, “I was always kind of the last cut,’’ he said. Having someone like Spotts, who played for the B.C. Hockey League’s Cowichan Valley Capitals and college hockey in the U.S. at St. Scholastica, as his coach has been beneficial for Webber. “He definitely has a lot of knowledge on different systems and he definitely knows the game well,’’ he said.

Brentwood plays four Air Show cliffhangers

Slim margins: Fourth place a fine result while T-Birds take sixth seconds left but was forced to foul and Pitt Meadows padded the margin at the free throw line. “They’re a very good team,’’ said Gage. “Both teams shot the ball really well.’’ The game for third and fourth was a rematch with Sardis. Brentwood had an uncontested layup at the buzzer but missed it and lost 65-64. Gage was pleased with the performance of all his players in pressure-packed situations throughout the tournament. “A lot of guys stepped up and improved,’’ he said. Cowichan Thunderbirds competed in the same tournament and placed sixth. The opener against the North Delta Huskies Thursday ended in a thrilling 8988 double overtime win. Jerod Dorby lit up the scoresheet for 43 points and pulled down 26 rebounds. Andrew Larson tallied 24 points and nine rebounds while Cyrus Gray contributed eight points and added 14 rebounds. The T-Birds found themselves in a tough quarter¿nal match Friday against host Pitt Meadows and lost 85-42. Dorby couldn’t play due to an ankle injury and that severely impacted the offense. Larson played the lead role with 15 points and ¿ve rebounds. Gray hit for 10 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. With Dorby still out of action, the T-Birds took on their familiar island foes from Belmont in the ¿fth- and sixth-place game and dropped a 57-40 decision. Gray stepped up to lead the offense with 14 points and nine rebounds. Larson and Braydon Aumen had 11 points apiece. Larson also tallied four assists.

rentwood College and Cowichan Secondary School players were literally Àying in keeping with the theme of the Pitt Meadows Air Show senior boys’ basketball tournament. Brentwood was the only AA team entered and held its own by ¿nishing fourth in the elite ¿eld after a series of four games that all went down to the wire. “They were all great games,’’ said Brentwood coach Blake Gage. First up was Sardis, the eighth-ranked team in the province in AAA, and Brentwood lost by a mere 54-51 score. “They’re a good team,’’ said Gage. “We were a little Àat that game.’’ The top six teams moved into the quarter¿nals and the next two with the closest losses. Brentwood ¿t into the latter category and quali¿ed to play in the top eight. Facing Belmont, Brentwood eked out a 64-63 win when Jordan Charles scored right on the ¿nal buzzer. “It was pretty dramatic,’’ said Gage. Brentwood put the ball into play from out-of-bounds with two seconds left and Charles managed to get to the basket just in time. “We weren’t very good defensively,’’ said Gage. “To their credit, I thought they played really well.’’ Belmont lost its big player during the game but managed to hang around. The semi¿nals pitted Brentwood against host Pitt Meadows that ended in a heartbreaking 73-69 loss. Brentwood was down by two with 50

hree games in four days started well for the Kerry Park Islanders thanks to Jackson Jane. Jane made 42 saves, as the Islanders were badly outshot but beat the Campbell River Storm 4-3 Thursday at Kerry Park Arena for just their fourth victory of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season. Cody Short, Braeden Cross, Brendan Gowanlock and Kyle Green scored for the Islanders. But the win streak was short-lived, as the Islanders lost 5-3 at Kerry Park Arena Saturday against the Peninsula Panthers. Only the heroics of Jordan Hospes in the Islanders’ net kept the game close. He turned aside 52 of 57 shots. Kyle Peterson, Corey Peterson and Eric Mansueti were the Islanders’ marksmen. The Islanders were in Parksville Sunday and went down to a 6-3 defeat against the Oceanside Generals. Green, Corey Peterson and Jordan Coyne connected for goals in vain.
