Kayakers plucked from water near Boat Harbour BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

Two men were lucky the coast guard auxiliary was close by when their kayak overturned on the weekend. Both men in their early 20s were out kayaking Saturday when their craft overturned, dumping them in the

chilly waters between Boat Harbour and De Courcy Island. Both men were wearing life preservers, but with their kayak overturned they had few options other than to try and swim with the current toward Round Island, south of Dodd Narrows. Fortunately for them, Royal Canadian Search and Rescue Units No. 27 and 29

of Nanaimo and Ladysmith were conducting training exercises in the area and had three boats in the water. Mike Banning, Nanaimo station leader, said they got a call from the Canadian Coast Guard Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Victoria shortly before 11 a.m. ◆ See ‘RESCUED’ ‘ /4

A Nanaimo man died Friday in a head-on collision on Highway 4 near the Port Alberni summit. The accident happened at about 1:20 p.m., near the brake check area on the section of the highway known as the Hump, when a westbound Ace Courier cube van collided head-on with an eastbound B.C. Hydro flat bed truck. According to witnesses, the van veered into the oncoming lane and into the path of the B.C. Hydro truck. The vehicles struck each other on the driver’s side and careened off the road. The driver’s side of the Hydro truck was heavily damaged. A portion of the cube van’s cab was torn away. Firefighters assisted in removing the male driver of the van. Police in Port Alberni

said they were told by witnesses the 47-yearold woman from Gabriola Island driving the B.C. Hydro truck swe r ve d , b u t w a s unable to avoid the collision. Both drivers, the sole occupants of each vehicle, were rushed to West Coast General Hospital in Port Alberni. The driver of the hydro truck received severe contusions to her left arm and has been released from hospital. The driver of the cube van was pronounced dead. The B.C. Corners Service has identified the victim as Jaspreet Parmar, 25, of Nanaimo. RCMP traffic investigators and the B.C. Coroners Service continue to work on the case to determine the cause of the crash and the events leading up to it. photos@nanaimobulletin.com – with files from Wawmeesh G.

Police arrest man stealing bulk cigarettes THEFTS OCCURRED at Costco locations from across Vancouver Island, including Nanaimo.

I

BY KYLE SLAVIN BLACK PRESS

Members of the Greater Victoria Regional Crime Unit arrested a Langley man last week who they believe is responsible for a rash

of cigarette thefts targeting Costco customers. According to Staff Sgt. Gary Schenk, with the RCU, in August police in Greater Victoria identified a pattern in high-valued ciga-

rette thefts. “The suspects appear to be watching people make purchases (of cigarettes at Costco), then follow them to see if the opportunity presents to make a theft,” Schenk told the Victoria News in August. Most often, the suspect would break in to a vehicle left unattended after being

loaded with the cigarettes. An investigation revealed 28 nearly identical incidents throughout B.C in 2012, occurring in Saanich, Langford, Nanaimo, Burnaby, Abbotsford, Coquitlam and Kamloops. Since August, more than $20,000 in cigarettes were stolen in half a dozen incidents on Vancouver Island.

In total, more than $100,000 worth of cigarettes were stolen. In December 2012, RCU members identified a vehicle suspected of having been used in a number of the thefts, Schenk said. They traced the vehicle, and determined its travel patterns to and from the Island lined up with at least one of the thefts.

On Jan. 23, RCU members observed a suspect follow a vehicle from the Nanaimo Costco to an area restaurant. “When the unsuspecting driver entered the restaurant (the suspect) donned a disguise, smashed the window out of the vehicle and stole approximately $3,200 worth of cigarettes which the victims had just purchased at Costco,” Schenk said. RCU members followed the man to the Costco in Courtenay. Once stopped in the parking lot, he was arrested without incident. Christopher Sharafi, 46, was charged this week with four counts each of mischief under $5,000 and theft under $5,000, two counts of possession of stolen property, and one count each of disguise with intent, possession of breakin instruments, and fail to comply with conditions of recognizance. The investigation continues, and Schenk says more charges are anticipated. “We’ve linked all 28 events by the fact the cigarettes were recently purchased

from Costco and were stolen, and it appears the victims were followed. We’re actively working to charge him with as many of them as the evidence will allow,” he said. Given the amount of cigarettes that were stolen, along with “past experience and street-level intelligence,” Schenk says RCU members believe the smokes were being sold on a cigarette black market. “We’re talking about cigarette volumes too great for any individual use or consumption. We definitely think they’re being resold,” he said. At this point, however, that hasn’t been confirmed and only the cigarettes stolen on Jan. 23 have been recovered. “This is a very significant arrest, just by the scope of the investigation, the dollar value of the stolen property, and just the fact that this guy’s been offending in the province for the length of time that he has,” Schenk said. “We’re very pleased to have finally made an arrest on an offender that was preying on innocent and unsuspecting small business people.” editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Grant helps students expand garden Vertical garden project grows to include aquaponics system for raising fish

3

Changes proposed to school calendar BY JENN McGARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

A vertical farming and fish growing project at Wellington Secondary School is expanding. Students recently learned the school will receive about $2,700 through World Wildlife Federation Canada’s Green Community School Grants program to add more green wall space and another fish tank to the school’s already blossoming project in its inner courtyard. Students started researching green walls – walls covered with vegetation – two years ago and last year, the idea expanded to include an aquaponics system attached to the green wall. Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines growing fish with growing vegetables. The aquaponics system uses less energy and water than growing plants the traditional way and the fish waste feeds the plants. The green wall acts as a natural insulator, cutting heating and cooling costs, and uses space more efficiently by growing vertically instead of horizontally. This fall, after spending a year fundraising, students got the system up and running with one three-metrelong green wall filled with local plants, and a horizontal tray of strawberry plants, all

attached to a tank the students hope to fill with fish soon. The money from the federation’s grant program, provided by Loblaw Companies Ltd., will buy another fish tank, two walls and horizontal tray so that the operation can supply food to the school’s cafeteria program, said Grade 12 student Kim Kuemper, one of about six students looking after the project this year. “If we can supply them with some food, it will make the program even more affordable for students,” she said. Eventually, students hope to cover all eight walls in the inner courtyard with green walls, said Kuemper. “We want to make it into a place for students to go out and enjoy themselves, enjoy nature,” she said, adding the hope is that more students get interested in environmental issues after seeing the project. “We want to encourage vertical farming,” said Kuemper. “We want to set an example. At the same time, it creates an opportunity for students to get involved and get credit for that.” She said the goal is to install the new pieces of equipment by the end of the school year and then have the new system running, with plants and fish, by next December.

Islands Trust seeks input on draft budget proposals The Islands Trust council is looking for public input as it moves forward with a $6.9-million draft budget, which includes a 1.3-per cent increase in property taxes. If the budget is approved, a 1.3-per cent increase would amount to about $4 for a property assessed at $450,000. “We are trying to keep budget increases low, while responding to our constituents’ requests for improvements and new programs to address issues that are important to islanders,” said Sheila Malcolmson, council chair-

woman, in a press release. As it stands, the proposed budget will make allowances for the trust to continue its work on core functions and priorities such as protecting potential fish habitat, increased access to information, higher bylaw enforcement capacity. The 1.3-per cent increase will also pay for several other strategic projects and work related to groundwater and shoreline protection. The proposed 2013-14 budget also addresses a reduction in the provincial

grant revenues in and B.C. Government Employees Union collective agreement wage increases negotiated by the B.C. government. The Islands Trust Council will make a final budget decision at its March 5-7, meeting on Thetis Island. To be considered for the financial planning committee’s recommendations to council, submissions must be received by noon on Feb. 8. For details on the budget, please visit www.islandstrust.bc.ca/news/budget. cfm

School officials are considering changing next year’s school calendar to have school start one hour later on Wednesdays and give students two extra days off to allow for employee in-service. Deputy superintendent John Blain presented these proposals to trustees at Wednesday’s business committee meeting and the committee is recommending the district consult with the public on the changes, which could result in education assistants losing one hour of work per week. The province recently introduced new legislation that eliminates the standard school calendar, reduces the minimum amount of instruction time slightly and makes districts responsible for their own calendars. Any changes to the school calendar require a 30-day public consultation and the calendar must be finished and submitted to the Education Ministry by the end of March. The first proposal is to host two in-service days for all staff – on the first day of school, when students typically only attend class for about an hour, and the last day of semester one. The second proposal is to start class one hour later on Wednesdays so that staff can meet and discuss teaching strategies, ways of dealing with individual students and any concerns they have at the school level. Blain said it is hard for administrators and staff at a school to get together and senior staff believe allotting the time for these discussions and collaborative work will boost student achievement levels. The third part of the school calendar proposal is having education assistants start an hour later on Wednesdays, saving the district about $400,000 annually, said Blain. “Ultimately, best practice would be everybody’s there,” he said. “But I know we have to deal with almost a $5-million deficit coming up for next year.” Jamie Brennan, school board chairman, said he wants to collect feedback from staff on how useful the first in-service day – scheduled for Friday (Feb. 1) – is before determining if it is something trustees should support again next year. Brennan is also concerned about the loss of income for support workers that the third part of the proposal would entail. “We’re going to approve going out and talking to people about it,” he said. Kelly Dunaway, general vice-president of CUPE Local 606, said having education assistants start work one hour later on Wednesdays translates into a loss of about 30 hours per year for one of the lowest-paid groups of employees in the district and it will cause considerable financial hardship for some members. Excluding education assistants from the Wednesday meetings sends the message that they are not a valued part of the education team, he added. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Rescued kayakers hypothermic ◆ From /1 The call indicated men were in the water somewhere between Boat Harbour and Yellow Point. “We responded to the call and had gone probably not even a mile south – we were still north of Boat Harbour at that point – and one of the boats spotted two guys in the water,” Banning said. “Fortunately we spotted them because we assumed they were a couple miles south of where we spotted them.”

A paramedic, who was on board one of the Nanaimo boats, found the men were hypothermic and called for an ambulance to meet them at Boat Harbour. They had been in the water at least 20 minutes. “They were trying to swim to Round Island, which was more than a mile away,” Banning said. “So they would have been in the water a long time. There were no other boats in the vicinity.” photos@nanaimobulletin.com

The end is nigh for the penny. The Royal Canadian Mint will cease distribution of pennies to financial institutions on Monday (Feb. 4), after which the supply of the copper coins will begin to diminish. The federal government first announced the phase-out of the penny during last year’s budget process. It costs about 1.6 cents to produce a penny and the federal government estimates that eliminating it from Canada’s coinage system will save taxpayers about $11 million per year once the transition is fully implemented. The Department of Finance estimates shortterm costs of phasing out the penny – redeeming pennies returned by consumers and business as well as operational costs – to be about $38.3 million over the next six years. While businesses are encouraged to stop using pennies on Feb. 4, the penny will remain legal tender and businesses can choose to accept the coin as a means of payment. The move will not impact cheque payments or electronic transactions, which will still be done to the cent, and cash transactions will be rounded up or down to the nearest five-cent increment – in countries that have phased out low-denomination coins, such as Australia and New Zealand, fair rounding practices have been respected. Businesses can update their cash registers to automatically calculate rounding for cash transactions and businesses, and consumers can continue to deposit pennies at their financial institutions, although some may require large amounts to be rolled for deposit. Kiran Parhar, branch manager for TD Canada Trust in Terminal Park, said the bank will continue to accept pennies, but will not give them out after Feb. 4. “I’m sure we’ll see an influx of pennies into the branches, but other than that, it will be business as usual,” she said. As the bank receives the pennies, it will send them on to the Bank of Canada to be taken out of circulation, said Parhar. The bank requires amounts of pennies larger than 50 cents to be rolled and the Terminal Park and Turner Road locations are getting coin counting machines to give customers another option to get rid of their change, she said. Mark Fenwick, Woodgrove Centre general manager, anticipates that retailers will phase out the penny as stocks deplete and he doesn’t expect problems with the rounding system. “I believe, on average, it should balance over time – the amount you round up would offset the amount you round down,” he said. “It’s going to be a big change for a lot of customers, it will be a surprise for some.”

The amount you round up would offset the amount you round down.

2013-1559 On Jan. 20 at 1 a.m., a small fire and several broken windows was reported at Uplands Park Elementary School, on Stronach Avenue. When fire crews arrived, they found a real estate sign burned and two broken windows in a classroom that faces the courtyard in the rear of the building. 2013-1596 On Jan. 20, a Minn Kota electric outboard was stolen from a property in the 1500 block of Wilson Road. The motor is black with yellow lettering. 2013-1598 Several home owners in Nanaimo have been receiving a cheque and joining instructions from Engine Control Systems Limited for employment as a mystery shopper. The cheque and letter are well written and appear on first glance to be legitimate. The fraud begins when the recipient of the cheque notes that the amount they are being paid is for much more than they would make for the employment period. Only when the recipient deposits the cheque and sends the extra money back do they realize the cheque is a fraud and they have been scammed and they are out of pocket for the extra money.

Retired mechanic scrounges for spare parts to make a life-size sculpture of a robotic man BY CHRIS BUSH

THE NEWS BULLETIN

M

ack isn’t going anywhere in a hurry. For one thing, he weighs about 200 kilograms, plus he’s pretty settled into his retirement home on the front lawn of Brian Gibbling’s house on Forest Drive. Mack started coming around, so to speak, about two months ago and it wasn’t long before Gibbling fell into the habit of saying ‘good morning’ to him whenever he’d step into his workshop. As they got to know each other, Gibbling, a 60-year-old retired heavy duty mechanic, got the back story on Mack. “He’s a retired soldier,” Gibbling said. “He’s back from the wars and he’s happy now to just sit on the front lawn and feed the birds.” Mack is a retired cyborg warrior, made from nuts, springs, bolts, spoons, forks, automotive and mortorcycle parts, metal tea sets, bearings, metal stove and refrigerator shelves, a small model steam engine from 1957 – that works – for a brain, a brass heart and propane bottle lungs. The closer and longer you look at him the more details you discover. Mack sits and feeds nuts and bolts from a can to a small peacock made from spoons, forks and old channel lock pliers. A bird made from part of a tea set sits on his shoulder and a second bird created from a working gas model airplane motor sits

above Mack on a small shelter Gibbling made to keep the rain off. It took about 400 hours for Gibbling to design and weld Mack together. That’s not counting all the hours spent scouring secondhand stores around town for spoons and forks. “I’ve welded pretty much all my life, but this was the first time I got to weld what I want to weld,” Gibbling said. “I do lots of art work and I just got carried away and tried to use up all the spare parts I’ve had laying around the house here.” This is Gibbling’s first attempt at a sculpture like this. The level of detail is nothing short of incredible and the longer you look the more curiosities you find. Gibbling doesn’t know what inspired him to start the project. He just happened to notice an upper control arm from a Honda car laying in his shop one day that looked a bit like a collar bone. “The rest is history,” he said. “I just started welding and I was gone.” Mack sits on an old wood stove bolted to a stump. His feet are off the ground, so Gibbling has to fabricate Mack a foot rest out of metal that will look like a log when it’s done. “He definitely grew to more than what I envisioned when I started,” Gibbling said. “This guy’s going to have a dog eventually and maybe squirrels and who knows?” photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Gibbling, a retired heavy duty mechanic, has been creating Mack, mostly from scrap stainless steel, since November. RIGHT: An upside down cream pitcher, spoons and ball bearings form a bird that perches on Mack’s shoulder. ABOVE: Mack likes to spend his time relaxing and feeding the birds, especially exotic breeds that come around, such as this peacock-like creation of spoons, forks and channel pliers that is brave enough to eat nuts and bolts from Mack’s hand.

EDITORIAL

Mental illness costs sizeable The scaling back of mental patient facilities at Riverview in Vancouver and, to a certain degree, Eric Martin Pavilion in Victoria decades ago, offered hope for hundreds of people who were previously expected to live out their lives away from the public eye. When cases where individuals battling mental illness are involved in serious attacks, even murder, on others, one questions – even if only for a few moments – whether such an experiment has proven successful. The cases of the young Sooke man charged with murdering his mother, after numerous previous incidents of violence; and the Victoria man on trial for stabbing an innocent boy at a bus stop – after seeing in the boy’s face someone he believed was in a gang that was trying to kill him – are examples of people falling through the cracks. No one advocates a return to the days of institutionalizing people with mental disabilities simply because they can’t function at a high enough level to live on their own. But for people who demonstrate an inability to function safely in society in relation to others, there needs to be an alternative to being hospitalized or being locked up in prison. That option needs to be available early for families that can no longer care for the person, often due to the fact that the individual is an adult. The long-term effects and costs, both financial and human, of removing the institutional option from our health-care system surely outweigh the cost of operating such facilities for those who need it. Whether there will ever be the political will to change the system, to create a broader spectrum of care for those battling mental illness, remains to be seen. The province should look seriously at this option to give everyone a chance at a healthier life. The Nanaimo News Bulletin is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder. If talking with the editor or publisher does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, you may contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2R2. For information, phone 888-687-2213 or go to www.bcpresscouncil.org

weather reports that lasted for 10 minutes while staff described what the weather was supposed to do, hour by hour. While weather is a popular topic of casual conversation for people around the world, there is one group paying extra special attention these days: the insurance companies. Five of the last nine years have been the most expensive on record for natural catastrophes and insurance companies and their insurers – the reinsurance companies – have had to pay out a lot of money. A report prepared for the Insurance Bureau of Canada by the Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction last June states the frequency and severity of severe weather is on the rise and changes in Canada’s climate – temperatures warmed by more than 1.3 C between 1948 and 2007 and precipitation has increased nationwide by about 12 per cent – are likely responsible, at least in part, for the rising frequency and severity of extreme weather events in the country. Warmer temperatures tend to produce more violent weather patterns, states the report prepared by professor Gordon McBean and his colleagues at the institute. The report stresses the need for governments, communities, homeowners and business owners to adapt existing infrastructure. So maybe we will all be paying a little more attention to the weather. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

‘Idle’ hunger strike distracts from real issue To the Editor, Re: Diet anything but detox, Letters, Jan 17. Historically, ‘hunger strike’ typically meant that no nutrients – solid or liquid, would be ingested by the person taking a stand – therefore the author of the letter that has Zlatko Zvekic so distressed is, in fact, correct. Having said that I was glad to hear Chief Theresa Spence was allowing herself some nutrients and not putting her body and health in jeopardy. The Attawapiskat administration under Chief Spence was given more than $100 million to be used for the benefit of all people living in that community. It is the chief ’s moral and legal responsibility to make sure the money is well spent and that proper records are kept. The lack of accountability in this situation would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragic. The Attawapiskat people should be outraged and demanding answers. If this fiasco had happened under a municipal government an investigation would have been demanded and criminal action would have been immediate. Justice is in place for all people of Canada – I hope it will be done. Kathryn Seaker Nanaimo

Changes in store for FortisBC billing To the Editor, Re: Accurate billing takes some effort, Letters, Jan. 17. I’m writing in response to a letter from Dave Noble regarding bill estimates, a FortisBC practice we’re phasing out. As Noble points out, our practice was to use meter estimates for bills every other month. Over the next three months, we are rolling out a new monthly meter reading schedule that will eliminate the need for regular estimates and lead to greater billing accuracy. We expect this change will also help our customers move away from submitting their own meter reads; however, in the meantime if customers want to submit their own meter readings to us, they can do so by calling us or signing into https:// accounts.fortisbc.com. This and other changes are being made based on

Downtown toilets are badly needed To the Editor, Re: City aims to solve public urination with restroom, Jan. 17. It’s about time there were toilets downtown. Not everyone goes to the shopping centres. I guess Coun. Bill McKay doesn’t have a bladder problem like many of us women. It’s so annoying to be searching around for a restroom and unless you go into a restaurant, where else can you go? I am sure the tourists will like it especially if you are wanting them to shop and explore Nanaimo. Theresa Kowall Ladysmith

Conference centre toilets available To the Editor, Re: City aims to solve public urination with restroom, Jan. 17. Why $100,000 for a public washroom at Diana Krall Plaza? Nanaimo already has a $100-million washroom not being used just steps away – it’s called the Vancouver Island Conference Centre. The entrance to view the mural is an isolated hall with two washrooms at the end. Instead of a mandate for use for non-residents, why not open it up to the public to be used until after the streets are empty? The cops can sit there as easily as in front of the plaza as they do now. Neil Saunders Nanaimo

NEWS BULLETIN FILE

B.C. residents need to contact their MLAs and convince the government to ban smoking in all public outdoor places throughout the province, says letter writer.

B.C. must butt out

To the Editor, With National Non-Smoking Week last week, the Canadian Cancer Society, B.C. and Yukon, is continuing to encourage the B.C. government – and all political parties – to support smoke-free public outdoor spaces. These include the patios of hospitality establishments, and where children play, such as parks, playgrounds and beaches. Although many municipalities including Nanaimo and Duncan on Vancouver Island have banned smoking in outdoor public places, many British Columbians remain unprotected. Since we started talking about smoke-free public places, we’ve heard from people on both sides of the fence. Some feel it is their personal right to smoke where they want and that provincial regulations would be going too far. But the vast majority view smoking restrictions as an important public health measure to protect us all from involuntary

exposure. This is a valuable debate and one that we are proud to have sparked. Debates aside, the facts reveal that tobacco use in our society is taking a staggering toll. Tobacco use remains the largest single preventable cause of death and disease in B.C., killing more than 6,000 British Columbians each year. Second-hand smoke is linked to the death of up to 140 B.C. residents each year. Currently, the provincial government is deferring to municipalities to decide whether or not to ban smoking in outdoor public places. However, at the 2012 Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in September, municipalities spoke loud and clear by asking the province to introduce provincewide restrictions. Please continue to encourage your MLA, and the B.C. Health Minister, to follow the lead of 30 B.C. municipalities and four other provinces, and keep B.C. beautiful and smoke-free. Erin Hemmens Canadian Cancer Society

Columnist need not be boorish

To the Editor, Re: Smart meter fight now a last stand, B.C. Views, Jan. 24. I continue to be amazed at the never ending ability of Tom Fletcher to reach new highs of boorishness in his attacks on smart meter opponents. To satisfy his vehement outrage with view points opposite to his own, then maybe a fascist governance of our province would serve him well. Dissenters could then be put away, their voices silenced and all would

be well. An end to “bozo eruptions.” For my information, I rely mostly on research that the international medical community is doing in studying the biological effects of electromagnetic radiation. There is not a single peer-reviewed study that supports the so-called ‘safe to health’ of this wireless technology. The double-blind tests that Fletcher refers to mean nothing. As with smoking, it is apparent that it may take some time for one’s own circuitry and cells to be

adversely affected. And people differ, with a developing child or older person affected differently compared to a healthy 20- or 30-year-old. While I respect Fletcher’s right to express his opinions, I hope for the day when he may become more respectful and less ignorant. The respected Canadian author, John Ralston Saul, wrote in one of his books “The question is more important than the answer.” Phil Marchant Gabriola Island

To the Editor, Re: First Nations have benefitted, Letters, Jan. 26. I read with interest the letter from Ralph Forshaw saying our First Nations are better off than those in Third World countries and what we, the settlers, gave them. The problem is we are not in a Third World country and that is not an appropriate comparison. The comparison needs to be with our people here in Canada as equals. In his list of things our First Nations got as a result of the settlers, there are a few things left out. These include: ◆ Moving our First Nations people to marginal lands called reserves. ◆ In the early years, bringing blankets deliberately infected with small pox in order to kill them. Fortunately this did not work, but it was devastating. ◆ Yes, we gave them schools … residential schools which required separating children from families for often years at a time, potential and documented abuse of children and destruction of families. ◆ Outlawed their language and cultural activities. ◆ Denied them ability to own property, have pride in what they do and build equity plus community for their lives ahead. We spent decades destroying the fabric of families, languages and cultures. Today, we wonder why there are so many social issues. Likely because we, the settlers, spent decades creating them. I’ve learned so much about our First Nations in B.C. and their delightful culture, art, history and sense of community. There is a lot we all can learn if we will just listen. I am not at all proud of the decisions made by prior governments and, consequently, parts of my heritage that created much of the situation we have today. I am proud to have some very talented First Nations friends and associates. I apologized one day to a First Nation elder for what my ‘elders’ did. It was a humbling experience. It is not, in my opinion, something to be proud of. Wally Wells Nanaimo

All that jazz

Talents of young musicians showcased at JazzFest, which is a fundraiser for school music programs BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

RACHEL STERN/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Josh Rey said the tenor saxaphone gives him the freedom to express himself. He is one of many young musicians from Nanaimo schools performing during JazzFest Thursday (Jan. 31) at the Port Theatre.

he tenor saxophone is an expressive instrument. Notes can be sustained. Tones can have a tough edge or a soft voice. “It’s very expressive,” said Joshua Rey, who plays the instrument. “I can change the quality or the texture of the note.” He was attracted to the saxophone because of its range. He said it’s akin to the range of a male voice and it allows him to draw out sounds. “It’s got curves like a person. It’s a very human instrument,” he said. Rey, a grade 12 student at Wellington Secondary School, is one of many talented young musicians featured at JazzFest today (Jan. 31) at the Port Theatre. The event is presented by the Harbour City Jazz Society, and is an annual fundraiser for school music programs. The 17-year-old said he’s willing to make sacrifices to reach his goal as a musician. He knows it’s not an easy path and not one that everyone chooses to pursue. Rey said even if people have a passion for music they still must be prepared to go through a long period where they aren’t making any money. Rey said he’s ready to make that commitment because music allows him to express “all the craziness” in his head. “It’s like you have all the parts and you have to build it yourself,” said Rey about music. He was first introduced to jazz music by fellow student Kelsey Hepples. She invited him to play with her band. It was at that gig his ability came to the attention of Carmella

Luvisotto, the band director for Wellington Secondary School. She had formed the band Joshin’ Around. The members have changed over the years but it gave Rey an avenue to perform. The young Nanaimo musician said JazzFest is an opportunity for the whole community to come together. It showcases the talents of young emerging artists and is a spectacle that all ages can enjoy, he said. “It’s a positive thing,” said Rey. There are many opportunities for people in Nanaimo to listen to live performances and support the arts, said the saxophone player. “It will enrich your life,” said Rey about local performances. As an aspiring musician Rey spends hours practicing his craft. During practices he’s focused solely on the instrument, but when he performs his attitude shifts. “The process is very spiritual – it’s a very collective spiritual process,” he said. “It’s a very serene feeling. You just forget and play.” This year’s event features guest performer Richard Underhill. The jazz musician has accumulated numerous awards over his career including a Juno Award for his album Moment in Time and the Roy Thomson Hall Award of Recognition for his contribution to the Toronto musical and artistic community. His newest endeavour, Free Spirit, received critical acclaim and features trombonist Ron Westray and other musicians. JazzFest is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 and are available by calling 250-7548550, at the Port box office, 125 Front St., or www.porttheatre.com. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Pisces

What’sOn

LIBRA A - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, mixing business and pleasure is not the right approach this week. Avoid starting new romantic relationships with someone in the office and focus on work.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you are on a roll and you probably have no plans to slow down for anyone. Try to slow down and help others if you find yourself with some free time. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, honesty is the best policy but you do not always have to be so forthcoming with your opinions. Employ tact if you are asked for your opinions on certain issues. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Even a minor disagreement could have you licking your wounds, Aquarius. Don’t use this week for sulking. Get back on the horse and dust yourself off. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, avoid potentially sticky situations this week. It is better to defer to an expert even if it means making a financial investment.

Magnus Noreni Jorgenson The most adored man in our life passed away suddenly on January 17, 2013 at the age of 87. He was our hero, our mentor and our very best friend. Magnus Noreni Jorgenson was born on December 26, 1925 in Leirosen, Leifjord, Norway in the family home. He immigrated to Canada with his parents, Martin & Nikka at the young age of 3. Magnus served in the Canadian Navy, which he joined at the age of 17. A veteran who cherished freedom, kindness & the enhancement of all good people. In 1947 he travelled out to the West Coast, fell in love with the Pacific Ocean and topography, and met the love of his life. He married Jacqueline in 1951. Magnus is survived by his wife of 61+ years, Jacqueline; 4 children: Jana (Brian), Dale, Jill, and Dean; 4 grandchildren: Aaron, Amber (Travers), Sheena & Dawson; one great-grandchild, Dante; 3 brothers: Arnold (Shelby), Alvin (Bernice), Kenneth (Joan); one loving sister, Joan (Rick); one adoring aunt, Taunta Ellen; many adored cousins, nieces & nephews, one sister-in-law, Sheila (Bill) and countless treasured friends. Predeceased by his parents, baby brother, John; brother, Norris; loving sister, Elen; nephew, Marty and many loved aunties & uncles. To know Magnus was to be loved by him. A generous, beautiful spirit who lives in the hearts of all of us who knew and loved him. He was a great hunter & fisherman, an advanced skier with his children & buddies and an avid golfer. His adored grandchildren were raised to appreciate nature & life through his wonderful, magical adventures. He loved music and dancing and one of his countless pieces of wisdom was “Have you hugged your kids today?” He was a man of many talents. Magnus was a detailed craftsman and built many homes. His masterpiece was in British Pacific Properties in West Vancouver where countless family, friends & strangers enjoyed the works of his labour, the magnificent 180 degree view of the city, the gracious hospitality that always included laughter, singing & dancing and his classic Rye & 7 at his custom-built bar. His favourite memories were at the beautiful get-away home he built with his sons at Mount Baker; referred to as “the cabin.” Countless celebrations were thoroughly enjoyed there with family & friends including the ringing in of the “Millenium.” Magnus worked in management in the BC Lumber Industry for Crown Zellerbach for most of his career, where he made lifelong friendships with many of his colleagues. A celebration of Magnus’s life will take place, February 16, 2013, 1-4pm at the Royal Canadian Legion, 1630 Wellington Road E, Nanaimo, BC. No flowers by request. Donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Society of BC, #600-890 W. Pender St, Vancouver, BC, V6C 1J9. 1-604-662-3240, info@parkinson.bc.ca.

Clippers drop pair to Interior foes BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Key injuries to top forwards and goaltending that could have been stronger led to two home losses for the Nanaimo Clippers over the weekend against B.C. Hockey League Interior Division teams. On Friday, the Trail Smoke Eaters blanked the Clips 4-0 at Frank Crane Arena while on Sunday, the Merritt Centennials handed Nanaimo a 5-2 loss. “Our biggest issue right now is health,” said Mike Vandekamp, coach and GM for the Clippers. “We’ve just got a lot of key players out of the lineup and we just haven’t had enough time to react to those injuries. “It certainly affected us this

weekend, we’ve got four of our top six forwards out of the lineup. We lost two guys against Trail and by Sunday we were just a little bit decimated.” Both Aaron Hadley and Greg Fraser were injured against Trail and did not return for the game against Merritt. They joined forwards Michael McNicholas, Brendan Forbes and defenceman Colton Dahlen on the sidelines. Fraser is Nanaimo’s second top scorer so far this season with 13 goals and 28 assists. McNicholas has contributed 10 goals and 22 assists, Hadley has recorded 13 goals and 12 assists, while Forbes has eight goals and nine assists. “These are possible long-term, serious injuries to very good play-

These are possibly long-term, serious injuries to very good players. That is a lot of firepower.

ers,” said Vandekamp. “That is a lot of firepower not on the ice.” Still, Nanaimo managed to outshoot both teams. Against Merritt (25-12-1-3), the Clippers (23-17-0-2) outshot their

opponent 37-32, but the Cents drew first blood in the first period when Silvan Harper beat Clips goalie Derek Dun to make it 1-0. That score stood until early in the third period when Derek Huisman and Sebastien Pare scored at 1:23 and 3:32 respectively, to give Merritt a 3-0 lead. Nanaimo didn’t respond until Mason Mitchell beat Cents goalie Tyler Steel with a power play goal midway through the period. Merritt stretched its lead back to three goals four minutes later to secure the win, though Mitchell scored again late in the third. Regan Soquila scored an empty net goal at 18:46. Nanaimo didn’t register any penalties in the game. ◆ See ‘TEAM’ /27

Team needs solid goaltending ◆ From /26 Against Trail (20-25-0-2), Nanaimo outshot the Smoke Eaters 35-34 but ran into a hot goaltender in Adam Todd, who turned away every shot he faced. Trail scored early in the first frame, beating starting Clips goalie Jayson Argue at the 4:02 mark. Scott Davidson and Braeden Pears made it 3-0 at the 7:03 mark of the second period, chasing Argue in favour of Dun, but the change didn’t help. Sandler scored again shorthanded midway through the third period to ice the win. Nanaimo went 0-for-5 on the power play while the Smoke eaters were 0-for-2.

“I didn’t think we had great goaltending this weekend in either game,” said Vandekamp. “I think those guys will need to step up and play better. In our league with good teams every night, you know, you need that solid goaltending.” Nanaimo sits in second place behind Victoria (29-9-0-5) in the league’s Island Division, but Island rival Alberni Valley Bulldogs are nipping at their heels just two points behind in the standings. The Clippers will try to regroup on the road against Prince George and Merritt Friday and Saturday (Feb. 1-2). reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com
