The crunch isn’t over, mayor warns Council adopts 3.91 per cent tax increase KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Property taxes are going up 3.91 per cent for Campbell River homeowners in 2013. The residential increase equates to $55.43 more per year, based on the average Campbell River home assessed at $268,000. There will be no increase to any of the other tax classes in 2013. Though the rate hike is modest compared to last year’s 13.6 per cent increase, not all members of council were thrilled with the budget, which was hammered out Monday and Tuesday in council’s second of a three-year transition to shift the tax burden from heavy industrial to the residential sector. The budget was approved Tuesday afternoon by councillors Andy Adams, Ryan Mennie,

Claire Moglove and Mary Storry. Mayor Walter Jakeway and councillors Ron Kerr and Larry Samson were opposed. Jakeway said not enough was done to give taxpayers a break. “This is just terrible, it’s awful,” he said. “We haven’t cut costs, this is the year to cut. Nothing’s gotten better, the crunch isn’t over. “The process has been good this year because it’s been simplified but the results are not good.” Jakeway said council’s mistake was not cutting staff at city hall when council was deliberating its base budget in December. He said he would like to see $3.5 million in staff cuts and put towards the city’s $6 million debt as well as badly needed water and sewer infrastructure projects which will require the city to borrow funding, further increasing the city’s debt. On Monday, council approved a water and sewer capital plan that endorses the city borrowing up to $15 million over 15 years to pay for nearly $60 million in projects between 2013 and 2017. Jakeway said that will likely not sit well with taxpayers. “What we’ve done is a dramatic change,” he said. “I think we’re going to be criticized. My concern is we didn’t cut enough.” Jakeway pointed to projects contained within council reserve funds, which are similar to a Continued on A4

Target’s on the mark for May opening PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Mike O’Connor is anxious to see “his girl” after the makeover. But his patience will be tested because it’s going to be a few more months. “We can’t wait to see,” he says. “She” in this case in the former Zellers store at Discovery Harbour Mall, currently being transformed into Target. And the target date for the grand opening is sometime in May. “I do know the date, I just can’t say yet,” says O’Connor, the store manager. O’Connor watches as PCL contractors are busy everywhere, inside and out, as they makeover the drab concrete facade and transform the 91,000-square feet interior to give it that hip, chic retail look. However, he can’t go inside until the makeover is complete. “It’s different than Wa l M a r t , ” says O’Connor, who should know because he was

a WalMart manager. “It’s a unique approach to retail and guest services. It will be cool for the community to experience.” The store makeover will cost $10-$11 million and Target is spending that much at 126 stores across Canada which are set to open this spring. “That’s extreme renovation,” O’Connor says. In January 2012, the U.S.-based retailer spent $1.8 billion to buy out 220 Zellers leases across the country. Some operations were closed, but Campbell River made the cut, much to O’Connor’s delight. Target gave him, and his family – he has a wife and two children, ages 3 and 4 – the opportunity to return to a community they loved. O’Connor lived in Campbell River from 1996-2006 and worked at Staples when it opened at Discovery Harbour Mall. “We have family here, friends, I played spor ts here…we’ re just excited to be back

piggy bank. Reserves receive annual contributions from the city while others are funded by outside agencies. The Community Works Fund, for example, is funded by federal gas tax rebates while the Gaming reserve is sustained by provincial casino revenues. Jakeway said if it was up to him, he would have cut items such as $64,000 for pedestrian crossing signals and $100,000 for cycling upgrades from the Community Works Fund reserve; as well as $500,000 for a ladder fire truck replacement from the Capital Works reserve. While taking funding from the reserves does not have an impact on taxation in the year its withdrawn, it can down the road as money that is taken out of the reserves needs to be replaced by council in future years. Coun. Moglove was concer ned council drew too heavily on

reserves in 2013. “Yesterday (Monday) I said we were sleep walking to the abyss,� Moglove said. “I would say since then we took so much from reserves that we have gone to a jog. I appreciate all the work council has done in the last couple of days. “Where I find it difficult, is with this budget what we are doing, in my opinion, is simply postponing a tax increase to future councils, specifically for infrastructure and facilities, and we’ll be taking money out of reserves and not putting anything in and if we are putting something in, it’s not nearly enough.� Moglove said the practise is unsustainable and will only hurt more in the long run. “Think about your house,� she said. “You spend more than $100 a year to maintain your house and if you don’t maintain your house, costs go up and up. While I appreciate keeping taxes low, I

think we will pay the piper in the end.� Coun. Adams, chair of the city’s Finance Committee, ag reed that council is burdening future councils. “Depending on reserves is just simply unsustainable and staff has been doing a magic act to keep things together but we are going to have to pay the piper,� Adams said. “The only hope is that we have provided enough stimulus in sending a message out there that at least keeping the (tax) level where it is that we attract people to generate the revenues (to replenish reserves). “We need to find ways to contribute into those reserves to stabilize financial plans going fo r w a r d s, � A d a m s added. “To just not contribute or to defer is passing the buck onto future councils and future taxpayers.� Coun. Samson attempted a last ditch effort to reduce the tax level even further. He proposed coun-

cil fund one per cent of the 3.91 per cent tax increase using the gaming reserve, to lower the tax hike to 2.91 per cent. “I realize we’re in a transition year this year from heavy industrial but I think the gaming reserve can handle a one per cent decrease...to help offset a tax increase to our citizens,� Samson said. “I know you can’t rely on reserves but savings are for rainy days.� Samson’s motion, however, was defeated by councillors Adams, Mennie, Moglove and Storry. Before wrapping up financial planning, Adams thanked Jakeway for entrusting him with chairing the Finance Committee and gave accolades to the city’s general managers for getting the base budget to council in December, the earliest it’s been presented in recent history, as well as to City Manager Andy Laidlaw and General Manager of Corporate Services Laura

Ciarniello, who led a simplified, straightforward budget process this year. Items funded through general taxation in 2013: ■One per cent of the tax increase ($156,000) put towards the city’s Capital Works Reserve for new and replacement of capital infrastructure (roads, equipment, city facilities). ■ Human resources information system at $25,000 ■ An undisclosed $7,500 in-camera decision ■ Airport Air Service Development at $40,000 ■ $5,000 put into the city’s Recreational Equipment Reserve ■ Restoration of 50 per cent of last year’s budget cuts to the city facility repairs and maintenance, a total of $45,000 ■ Restoration of 50 per cent of last year’s budget cuts to city horticulture (i.e. city welcome sign, Sea Walk), a cost of $24,500

Seawalk, park ‘won’t be forgotten’ Riverites should KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

An extension to the Seawalk and an expansion of Frank James Park will not be part of council’s five-year budget plans, in order to make room for an all-weather field at Robron Park. Although $250,000 to extend the Seawalk from Maryland Road to Jubilee Parkway as well as $283,000 for Frank James Park improvements were taken out of the financial plan, Coun. Andy Adams stressed it doesn’t mean the projects are being forgotten. “What I’m painfully trying to do is send a message and a signal that Robron has been a priority for previous councils and this council and is the number one priority, with Big Rock Boat Ramp being the number two prior-

ity, of the community in the Strategic Parks Plan,” Adams said. Coun. Mary Storry agreed. “It’s a priority of mine, it’s a priority, I believe, of c o u n c i l ’s and the community’s and it’s a good step,” she said. In a self-selected parks survey in which 644 responses were tallied, the community ranked the completion of Robron Park as the number one project, and Big Rock Boat Ramp placed second. “I’m pushing for having a parks plan reflective of the Strategic Parks Survey,” Adams said but added that’s not to diminish the importance of the Seawalk and Frank James projects. “Don’t get me wrong, they’re all absolutely

The Welcome to Campbell River sign should return to at least a semblance of its former glory this year. At Tuesday’s 2013 budget planning session council chose to reinstate $24,500, or half, of the cuts it made to the city’s horticulture budget in 2012. The funding will come from general taxation, which will go up 3.91 per cent for residential taxpayers in 2013. Coun. Claire Moglove said the city’s welcome sign should be a source of pride, but last year it was “a disgrace to our city to see it look like that. “I do feel priority should be given to the entrance sign at Jubilee and Highway 19A and the Seawalk,” she said, adding that it was hard to see overgrown grass and weeds in the medians and sidewalks between Rockland and Hilchey – a stretch of highway that the city put more than $20 million into beautifying and upgrading two years ago. Moglove also tried to have council restore 50 per cent of the funding it cut in 2012 from the city’s grass trimming budget, which would have been $30,000, but that motion was Continued on A6

passed by council, with Coun. Claire Moglove voting in opposition. Moglove said she didn’t like putting off the other improvement projects. “I don’t think it’s necessary to delete those two items in order for staff to come up with a financing plan for Robron,” she said. “I don’t think it’s necessary in my view to delete it at this point because it sends a signal that we don’t want to do the projects.” Moglove did, however, thank Adams for moving the Robron project forward . “He’s been very passionate about this project and I applaud his efforts for bringing this into fruition.” Council also approved an option that will keep the Parks Parcel Tax at $25 in 2013 but increase to $50 in 2014-2017.

defeated. Coun. Andy Adams said he didn’t think it was necessary. “I think our parks staff did a tremendous job last year with the constraints they were under, the only complaints I heard were about the Jubilee (welcome) sign,” Adams said. Council did however, re-instate the summer student position which will cost the city $15,000 and be covered by savings in general operating costs generated from contracting out parks garbage collection. Adams, who along with Mayor Walter Jakeway, opposed hiring a summer student, said he would only support the move if the position could work within the roads department as well

as the parks department. He said while parks staff have done a good job in beautifying downtown parks, the roads are being neglected. “At Robert Ostler Park staff did an absolutely wonderful job but the (cement) triangle across the street has weeds growing two to three feet high,” Adams said. “I understand sidewalks and medians are the roads department but is there some way this position can cover both?” Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services, told Adams that a summer student can only be used in the parks department, specifically for beautification projects. That bothered Adams. “I have a real challenge with a weed in a flower bed being

eligible and a weed three feet away not (eligible),” he said. “Something needs to be changed.” In a further effort to restore funding to departments that took a hit last year, council also voted to re-instate 50 per cent, or $45,000, of the 2012 cuts to repairs and maintenance of city facilities, with the funding to come from general taxation. Other service changes included: ■ RCMP building repairs: $40,000 ■ Fire Hall No.1 (downtown) outside repairs and painting: $25,000 ■ Community Centre exterior painting: $30,000 ■ A statistically valid community survey to compare Campbell River with other B.C.

New bus route considered KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city is considering adding a new bus route that would serve the 16th Avenue/Willis Road area and the Quinsam reserve. The route would cost the city $40,000 per year to operate and would run six times per day on Monday to Friday, with five trips on Saturdays; no service on Sundays. The bus loop would begin at the Community Centre and travel up 16th Avenue to the Inland Island Highway, turn right onto Willis and make its way onto the Quinsam reserve (where the Shell gas station is located). The bus would then travel down Nursery Road onto Detweiler, down Highway 28, then back to 16th Avenue and wind up back at the Community Centre. Coun. Ron Kerr said although the route would not serve the area in between Willis and Petersen Road – an area of concern – the route would still fill a need. “While it’s not entirely what I hoped for, it is a step in the right way,” Kerr said.

abilities and for women who have fled abuse, would like to see a bus stop closer to its facility on Nikola Road. Michelle Albrecht, a program coordinator at Plamer Place, told council in October that most of the residents depend on public transit to get around but the closest bus stop is at the corner of Petersen and Willis road – 1.5 kilometres away. She said it’s “a long walk along a narrow, busy and dangerous road, bordered by steep and deep ditches.” Kerr said for now, establishing a new northern route would be better than nothing. And it looked like council was heading in that direction at Tuesday’s financial planning meeting. A motion was put on the floor to establish the “Willis-Northern Campbell River” route, however that motion was rescinded after council decided it would prefer to hold off until it could discuss the route with the We Wai Kai First Nation, who live on the Quinsam reserve. If the route is approved, it would likely not be established by BC Transit until halfway through the year, therefore the city would only have to pay half the cost this year.

Regional district directors don’t want Zeballos road fix requested a policy telling them what to do KRISTEN DOUGLAS

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A suggestion last week by the chair of the Strathcona Regional District that the board adopt a set of policies outlining its roles raised the hackles of some directors who don’t want the board to dictate what they do. Chair Ted Lewis said in his report, presented at last week’s Thursday board meeting, that he felt “the Strathcona Regional District would benefit by adopting policies that better describe the role and responsibilities of not only the chair’s position but also that of the vice chair, municipal directors and electoral area directors.” Brenda Leigh, director for Area D (south of the city), was unimpressed by the report. “I barely looked at

it because I’m not an employee of the regional district. My responsibility is to my (constituents),” Leigh said. “If you want to keep on churning out policies I don’t pay attention to, if you want to waste money like that, go right at it. I know I’m in the minority. What are you going to do, fire me? This board does not have the right to treat us as employees, it doesn’t have to treat us like we’re in the army.” G e r a l d W h a l l e y, director for Area A (Kyuquot/Nootka-Sayward), also wasn’t fond of having policy drive decisions and behaviours. “This report would intend to tell us directors what our roles and responsibilities are supposed to be,” Whalley said. “I could just see the headlines

now in the newspaper, that ‘Regional District doesn’t know what it’s doing’. I could care less what the board thinks my roles and responsibilities are. I don’t report to the board, I don’t report to staff, I report to my constituents. My major responsibility is to protect my taxpayers from frivolous reports like this one.” However, not all of the directors thought it was a waste of time. Director John MacDonald, representing Sayward, liked the idea of having some guidance. “I don’t think it’s going to take that much time from staff (and) I think it’s important,” he said. “Some may think their job is a little bigger or a little smaller than it is. Let’s have some direction.” The sample policy

provided to directors was from the Comox Valley Regional District but Alter nate Director Andy Adams, and Campbell River city councillor, suggested staff take a sampling from different regional districts and incorporate them. “We don’t want to take up staff time so I would advocate to keep it simple, we don’t need to re-invent the wheel here,” Adams said. “Comox Valley isn’t the be-all-end-all. Look at five regional districts and take the best from them. Don’t spend a lot of time on it.” In the end, a motion to have staff develop p o l i cy d o c u m e n t s describing the roles and responsibilities of board directors was passed with directors Leigh, Whalley, Jude Schooner and Jim Abram opposed.

Stabbing fib doesn’t go far with police PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

It wasn’t a very good lie. With blood dripping from his hand, cut on the glass window he broke while breaking to the hospital Thrift Store, Darren Mould told medical staff he had been jumped and stabbed by unknown assailants. It was in the early morning hours of Aug. 25, 2012, and Mould was now in the Campbell River Hospital, waiting to have his wounded hand attended to. His story about being stabbed was quickly passed along to RCMP who were already nearby investigating the Thrift Store breakin. They also watched Mould on surveillance video as he pocketed costume jewelry during the B&E. When confronted by officers in Emergency, Mould tried out his story, but when the stolen costume jewelry was found in his pocket, he ‘fessed up to the deed. But the trouble didn’t end there for the 20-year-old. On Dec. 5, 2012, he failed to report to his bail supervisor. On Dec. 16, he was seen riding an all-terrain vehicle on 7th Avenue, when he

didn’t have a driver’s licence. The final incident happened on the night of Dec. 28, when Mould assaulted his cousin. Mould, who was intoxicated on cheap sherry, was seen by a neighbour banging the young woman’s head against a brick wall. Mould fled the scene

by the time Mounties arrived, but a police dog tracked him to a nearby residence. Mould has been in custody since then. On Monday, in Campbell River provincial cour t, he entered guilty pleas to break and enter, assault, failing to report, and driving with a suspended

licence. He was given global sentence of five months, less 35 days for time already served. Mould also admitted he has a drinking problem and wants to seek treatment following his release from jail. He also plans to resume logging and has the support of his employer.

The Village of Zeballos is urging the government to improve the dangerous condition of the 78 kilometre gravel road from Highway 19 into the community. The Village is working with the Ehattesaht/Chinehkint First Nation, the Nuchatlaht First Nation and the Kyuquot/Checleseht First Nation for an improved transportation system. All four parties have a number of concerns, including proper access to emergency care. “Bouncing over the road in an ambulance sometimes results in further injury,” said Eileen Lovestrom, Chief Administrative Officer for the Village of Zeballos, in a letter to the province. “Sometimes an air lift is required, adding more expense to the health care system, because the road is too rough to travel.” Lovestrom added that there is concern for every single resident who travels the road because of the “abuse of the physical body bouncing over the road.” Residents also face ongoing maintenance expenses to repair and replace vehicles abused by the chronic condition of the road, which is the main access into not only Zeballos but the First Nations reserves and Fair Harbour. Lovestrom said the initial estimate to pave the entire road from Highway 19 to Fair Harbour is

around $15 million. But the village believes the economic spinoffs would be well worth it. According to briefing notes from a meeting between the four parties advocating for road improvements, 20 million pounds of seafood was shipped from Zeballos during the 2012 pilchard season. Trucks travelled in and out of the village to pick up the products and take it to the market. At that time, fishing lodges were full and the hotels and motels often had no vacancies. The parties agree further that the area’s tourism market share has been lost due to the road conditions. Complicating matters, however, is that the most dangerous section of the 78-km gravel road is a 10-km stretch under Western Forest Product’s road use permit. According to the meeting notes, the road has “many large dangerous potholes, steep rock walls, sharp drop-offs to the water and small pullouts for meeting traffic. It has been identified with signage as a ‘highaccident’ area. It is chronically the least accessible section of road in the entire 78 km of road from Highway 19 to Fair Harbour (and) has contributed to five fatalities in traffic accidents.” The village and three First Nations would like Western’s road use permit cancelled and the entire road managed by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.

Campbell River is very fortunatee to have a professional triathlete and physiotherapist return to town. Gillian Clayton is the 2012 Ironman Canada Female Champion. She completed a 3.9KM swim, 180KM bike ride and a full marathon (42.2km) all in 9 hours and 46 minutes. Just a long day at work for most of us! “It was hard work for a dream made true by a lot of time in a pool, on a bike and in my running shoes,” says Clayton. Born and raised in Campbell River, Gillian credits her Campbell River roots for her strong athleticism. “Campbell River was a great place to grow up as a kid who loved to be active in sports and I know my foundation for sport was built in this community,” says Clayton. After 3 busy years in triathlon, Clayton is returning to Vancouver Island where she’s “known for a while that (she) wants to live”. As an Ironman Champion, she is excited to be a mentor for many young children and other athletes in the community. “You really have to believe that getting kids into sport can lead to great things,” states Clayton. Clayton is also returning to her other passion, physiotherapy. A Registered Physiotherapist, she took a year sabbatical to train for triathlons full-time. Clayton is now thrilled to be working with Sophia Sauter at Active Living Physiotherapy in Oyster River. “It is exactly the type of clinic I want to work at,” she boasts. “The one-on-one treatment setting, gives you lots of time to ask questions – we want to understand your body better.” This modern, paperless clinic has a “boutique style” approach which emphasizes longer than average appointment times in an atmosphere of unhurried caring. Says Clayton, “For a small community, the quality and level of expertise at Active Living Physio is so high – I see this clinic as such a valuable addition to the community. It’s exactly the type of clinic I would be in if I were a patient – and I’ve seen lots of physiotherapists in my sporting career.” The clinic is open Mondays–Saturdays (except Tuesdays) and accepting new clients. Physiotherapy costs are covered by many insurance plans and no medical referral is necessary. Check them out online at www.activelivingphysio.com or call 778-420-0111.

Our View

It’s better than 13.6 per cent but... Okay, let’s get this straight. Three out of seven city council members predict we’re – in the words of Coun. Claire Moglove – walking towards the financial abyss with the budget drafted up this week. Yet, nobody felt compelled to lead us to a safer fiscal place? We say: Council What is it about this council that doesn’t seem to be able to resist couldn’t resist the the siren song of tax increases? siren song of a Not enough council members seem willing to bite the bullet. Yet tax increase it is a politically palatable stance that would garner a lot of political support in the community. Mayor Walter Jakeway didn’t change his tune from

last year’s budget but did change his tone, which is welcome given the anguish and animosity his approach to last year’s budget generated. The mayor is certainly willing to take the bull by the horns and wrestle municipal finances into shape. Jakeway wanted council to trim staff in order to free up money. This is an easy target, of course, and one that perhaps needs serious evaluation. Just how many staff do we need before it impacts the functioning of the city? Do we know that yet? But council decided to tap into reserves, something that will end up burdening future city councils. The result is a 3.91 per cent tax increase for the upcoming fiscal year. The size of the increase will probably be a little

more palatable to residential taxpayers than last year’s 13.6 but it does nothing to radically change the approach to municipal financing. Would it be possible to just try no tax increase for once? We just had to go to nearly four per cent? Paying the piper was a phrase used more than once in this week’s budget deliberations. We will have to pay the piper sometime, unless the economy picks up and Campbell River attracts more residents and therefore generates more tax revenue. It’s not a faint hope given the two big capital projects coming online in the next few years – the John Hart Dam upgrade and the new Campbell River hospital. So, we’ll squeak through the next few years and hope nothing goes sour.

Letters

Poll results disappointing I must express my disappointment on reading the results of your paper’s Idle No More poll – 76 per cent of your readers do not support the movement. Could they be misinformed, could they perhaps not support a movement that they might feel is to “radical”’ or maybe they feel only “Aboriginal” issues are at stake. In fact the issues at stake here should concern every Canadian. We are talking about omnibus bills that abrogate the Democratic process, changes in environmental review and Fisheries Acts that put our Environment at risk, and yes we are talking about the rights of First Nations. I suggest that if your readers are unwilling to join the Idle No More movement they should still exercise their democratic rights at the ballot box or by phoning John Duncan and demanding the government reconsider any changes to the Fisheries, environmental review and Navigable Waters acts.

For the sake of a few tax dollars, forget Robron Park

Paul Rudan No, really

Spending more city money to upgrade Robron Park is right up there with the “plan” to build a fancy gift shop beside Campbell River’s cruise ship terminal. Think hard, you may recall the cruise ship dock – that $17-million white elephant that greets all boaters as they pass Campbell River. The dock hasn’t seen a cruise ship in years. And while we’re spending money, we may as well extend the airport runway even further in the hope that Boeing 777s land here. Well heck, the runway extension didn’t bring in the 737s as the city hoped, so why not go for the biggest of the big? I know, this line of thinking is sure to get me hired as the next city man-

ager. Hey, I can spend money I don’t have, just like anyone else. This leads back to Robron, home of the unused lacrosse box. That’s not quite fair. The youngest players apparently use it...when the weather’s nice. However, the older teams won’t play a game there because it doesn’t conform to regulation size. I enjoy the sport and like photographing the games. I even played lacrosse, but I still think the outdoor box was a waste of tax dollars. And now, council is pushing to spend more money on Robron Park to install a synthetic grass field. You know, an artificial turf field makes sense in the rainfall capital of Canada, but it shouldn’t go in at Robron. The better location is Willow Point

Park, home of the notorious allweather playing field. This is the gravel “playing field” that has permanently scarred athletes for years! Nevertheless, it DOES have lights which makes sense for a new turf field that would primarily be used during the rainy months, particularly for evening practices. However, most councillors are basing their support for the new field on a recent survey of residents which indicated that unlit Robron Park was the top priority. Most surveys, I find, aren’t worth the paper they’re written on. That’s because they limit the public to finite decision-making that’s based on what? A whim? A fancy? A gut feeling?

That’s the style of decision-making which got us the cruise ship dock where no boats stop and a long runway were next to no big planes land. Public opinion polls and surveys are also the easy escape route for politicians who never have to accept responsibility because they’re only doing what the “survey says...” I’ve always thought an election was a pretty good review of public sentiment. What our last municipal vote indicated is taxpayers are rightly concerned about public spending and the seemingly lack of concern of those who spend our money. The new budget won’t alter that opinion, but hopefully council’s view of Robron will change for the sake of a few tax dollars.

Beware of the gift receipt ripoff I would like to make the public aware of a scam involving gift reciepts that I recently became aware of. I purchased my grandmother some clothes as a gift. They looked terrible on her and so I took her to the store to exchange them for something more suited to her. I took her new selection of cloths and gave the cashier the items to be returned with my grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gift receipt. I had the original receipt in my wallet. To my shock the gift receipt showed a balance of over $25 less than I had

originally spent on the items. I questioned the cashier and she told me that gift receipts show the last known sale price on an item and not the dollar value that was originally spent. I was horrified and immediately took out my original receipt, got all of my money back and left the store empty handed. Grandma got a nice pedicure and lunch instead. If you think about it, there is no benefit to using a gift receipt. The first thing a person does when returning an item is take up their gift receipt to see

how much they can spend. You are better off to make a copy of the receipt for your records and give them the original. Not only will this prevent you from looking like a total cheap skate (spelling?), but you will get the appropriate bang for your buck. I suggest that before you agree to a gift receipt you ask a store employee their policy on gift receipts. It is fun to see them squirm when they try and justify the fact that they were going to try and rip you off. Cheryl Tunningley

end of green onions in order to regrow them. My trial worked well and I was able to â&#x20AC;&#x153;harvestâ&#x20AC;? the next generation of greens. However, when I left the root ends in the soil for a another attempt at regrowing them, again, all I got were a few exhausted stems struggling to stay upright so I gave them a quick and merciful end. However, I learned that organic onions are the only type that will produce a second crop. As this was an experiment performed on my kitchen windowsill it will be interesting to see if a set of green onions, grown outdoors, can reproduce a second crop if the roots are left in the ground. That really will be sustainable gardening.

John Spry puts his beliefs into action in Mexico L

ast year John Spry found an opportunity to put into action his beliefs about helping others. But more importantly, by doing so you can open the doors for others to do the same. After meeting Melena, the English teacher at the local elementary school in Rincon de Guayabitos he offered to assist her in teaching her various classes. She and the principal agreed and Spry discovered that students, whether in Campbell River or Rincon de Guayabitos, are all the same: bright, cheerful and full of life. What isn’t the same, however, is the lack of materials for the students to learn and practice their learning. As a former Superintendent of Schools back in Canada Spry knew how well equipped each classroom is with computers, overhead projectors; not to say anything about the

students’ consumable items. While assisting Melena he discovered how many of these items we take for granted back in Canada are so important and often lacking in the Mexican classroom. Pencils are usually short stubby pieces that most golfers back home wouldn’t even consider using. While at the same time, erasers are often small smatterings of rubber that more often than not leave a grey smudge. And paper for students to draw on or to make notes on are always in short supply. The teachers use felt markers for the white boards that are so light it is at times impossible for the students to make out what it is written. At first the effort to assist the local students was helped by giving each of the students a pencil. Later a fellow Canadian, Greg Abar, provided toothpaste for each student

and Sherry Saunderson, a dental hygienist came to the school and provided a lesson on brushing their teeth and gave each student a toothbrush. Before leaving for home last year, the money Spry had earned while teaching cooking at Casa Los Pelecanos was donated to the English program at the school. On returning to Canada there was little thought or effort put into doing any more for the school and its students. Once home, however, several of his former colleagues, who had heard about the needs of the school in Rincon de Guayabitos offered to obtain pencils and other materials for his return this year. So in December, through the effort of Colleen Epp, Spry was given a box full of pencils, erasers, glue sticks, paper, pencil sharpeners, coloured pencils, crayons, rulers, and twelve calculators. As well,

Pajama Party to help babies beat the odds

Korey Reise has PVS (pulmonary vein stenosis). This was discovered after he too had open heart surgery to correct TGA (tranposition of the great arteries) its when your two main arteries in your heart are reversed.

The stories of two struggling children has inspired local businessman Chad Braithwaite to take action. Braithwaite’s Fitness Etc. will be holding a Onesie/Pajama Partythemed fundraising event on March 16 with all proceeds going to the BC Children’s Hospital, Mowat Wilson Syndrome Research and PVS (pulmonary vein stenosis). Aya Walcot has under gone many surgeries including one for open heart because she is suffering from Mowat

Wilson Syndrome. Her dad is a close friend of Braithwaite’s so helping Baby Aya and supporting research for her disease is always something he and his business will be involved in, he said. The second baby is Korey Reise, who has PVS (pulmonary vein stenosis). This was discovered after he too had open heart surgery to correct TGA (tranposition of the great arteries) which is when the two main arteries in your

heart are reversed. “These two kids have been through a lot at such a young age and they both continue to beat the odds,” Braithwaite said. Braithwaite is currently appealing to the local business community on behalf of

Aya Walcot, and Korey Reise for any support local companies would be willing to donate to this event. Anyone with questions or is able to donate, can call Braithwaite at 250-202-2654 or e-mail him at fitnessetc@shaw.ca.

Get used to if your kid is following you around the house reminding you to turn off lights and the computers, and turn down the thermostat and put on a sweater. Thanks to big Jon Hameister-Ries of the BC Lions Football Club, your child is now an Energy Champion, and they’ve been well-drilled in the school of power conservation. “If you’re cold at home, put on a sweater and some track pants – save some energy,” he tells students at Ocean Grove Elementary. It’s the third and final school stop on Tuesday for the Lions’ community ambassadors who earlier made presentations at Penfield and Ripple Rock schools. Hameister-Ries is the star of the FortisBC Energy Champions show. At first, the kids stare in awe at the 6’5”, 300-pound offensive guard, but he soon has them squealing with delight as he runs back and forth, playing educational games, and dressing up in as many clothes as he can get on in a minute. In a nutshell, he puts the “Ham” in Hameister, but his focus is true and he’s great with the kids. “This is a beautiful, beautiful place where we live,” says Hameister-Ries, who grew up in Edmonton, “but what are we going to do to keep it beautiful?” The hands shoot up like spring flowers as the students tell him they reuse and recycle, they don’t pollute, and they want to keep the air clean. They also learn what consumes the most power in their own homes and other tips to save energy like taking shorter showers, fixing leaky taps and drafty windows, to wash clothes in cold water, and to only run the dishwasher when it’s full. “Remember these messages, do them every day and pass along the messages to others,” says Hameister-Ries.

Drive Smart BC When to Replace a Broken2X14 Windshield 2X14 Recently I was coming back from the ski hill and got a rock chip in my windshield that has started to crack and spider. I know there is a violation ticket that may be written TYEE CHEV CHEV for a crackedTYEE windshield. I plan on getting it changed in the spring after the roads are swept because I don’t really want to spend $200 dollars to have a windshield changed on the chance it may get hit with another rock. This reader is correct, there are a number of ways for police to deal with a broken windshield ranging from a notice and order to repair to a ticket or even an order removing the vehicle from the roadway if the damage is serious enough. Since about 80% of the information that you need comes from your eyes, being able to see properly is a must. So, when is a windshield damaged sufficiently to require replacement? There are regulations that describe damage that is considered to be vision obstructing. Conditions include a crack over 300 mm long in any part, more than 2 cracks over 150 mm long in any one piece of glass, stone or shot injuries more than 40 mm in diameter, two or more stone or shot injuries over 20 mm in diameter in any one piece of glass and broken glass showing sharp edge.

I understand the balance of risk to the budget against the risk of replacing the windshield only to have it damaged again. Being able to see is important but you must also take into account that the glass is a structural component of the vehicle these days and also plays a part in body integrity and proper air bag deployment. Failing to replace it when needed could have significant consequences.

T

he Words on the Water writers festival connects Campbell River with the big ideas and grander concepts of the arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can enter bigger worlds through artistic experiences,â&#x20AC;? said Ruth McMonagle, festival spokesperson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In our small community, we have the best and most avante garde writers in B.C.â&#x20AC;? McMonagle, one of the co-founders of the annual writers festival, is referring to the line-up of authors Words on the Water manages to attract every year for the last 13 years. Attending this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival March 15-16 at the Maritime Heritage Centre will be another stellar stable of

writers: â&#x2013; Charlotte Gill (Haig-Brown Writer in Residence) â&#x2013;  Madeleine Thien â&#x2013;  Fred Wah â&#x2013;  JJ Lee â&#x2013;  Rawi Hage â&#x2013;  Matthew Hooton â&#x2013;  Anakana Schofield â&#x2013;  Janet Marie Rogers In the 13 years the festival has been running, the publishing industry has undergone big changes but the core of it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the art of writing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has never been stronger. There are probably more venues for writers now than there ever was. More and more, people are self publishing or publishing with small companies, McMonagle said. There are also internet venues â&#x20AC;&#x201C; blogs and websites â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that writers use now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All that is changing

Charlotte Gill is the Haig-Brown Writer In Residence and will be appearing in the Words on the Water writers festival March 15-16.

and it is not negative changes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a positive change,â&#x20AC;? McMonagle said. Although the publishing industry has evolved, Words on the Water resists the urge to change in one

sense, the organizers strive to keep the festival small and intimate, believing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a strength of the Campbell River event. A strength that attracts the writers as much as the audience.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just really, really excited because all of them (this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writers) are quality writers and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to come,â&#x20AC;? McMonagle said. As always, the festival is a broad-based community effort from a committee of dedicated volunteers to supportive businesses. The festival has created a legacy of fostering a writing culture in Campbell River. Writing seminars are being held by the Campbell River Community Arts Council and other organizations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an incredible increased passion for reading and writing in the community,â&#x20AC;? McMonagle said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is great. This is what we dreamed of is this passion for writing.â&#x20AC;? You can indulge in

your passion for writing by taking advantage of the early bird price for a festival pass â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $65 if bought before March 1. After that, the Regular Weekend Pass is $85. Individual session passes are $20 for the Friday night; $20 per individual Saturday session; and $20 for Saturday night. The schedule for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event is: â&#x2013; Friday Evening Panel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This evening serves as an introduction to all of our guest writers. The writers will address questions about the craft of writing and the art of storytelling and the conversation will begin the Words on the Water Festival. The opening also fea-

tures local musical talent, a no-host bar and delicious hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres. â&#x2013; Saturday Sessions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Saturday readings are organized into four 90 minute sessions. Two writers are assigned to a session and each will have up to 40 minutes for a reading. Many writers leave time at the end for audience questions. â&#x2013;  Saturday Evening Cabaret â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A last glance at the authors and time for stories. Includes hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres, local musical talent and a no host bar. Tickets are available online through the Tidemark Theatreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website (tidemarktheatre.com) or by calling the theatre at 250-287-7465.

Carry-forward amount There is no reason to worry if you have not been contributing to an RRSP, or if you have not had a chance to maximize your contribution room. Canada Revenue Agency allows you to carry forward any unused deduction room from your maximum limit indefinitely. Your carry-forward amount is noted on your Notice of Assessment.

Withdrawing Money In the year you turn 71, you are required to close your RRSP. When it comes time to convert your RRSP savings into a source of retirement income, there are several options available, including rolling your assets into a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF), purchasing annuities or simply making a lumpsum withdrawal.

In the event of death, your RRSP holdings are allocated to the person named as your beneficiary or to your estate – a decision that should be stated in your will. The RRSP earnings will continue to be tax sheltered if: • Your surviving spouse is named as your beneficiary and RRSP earnings are transferred into an RRSP or RRIF in your spouse’s name. • You do not have a surviving spouse but do have children or grandchildren who are minors and are named as your beneficiaries. RRSP earnings will be moved to a term annuity in their names. • You do not have a surviving spouse but do have children or grandchildren who are financially dependent due to medical conditions. The RRSP earnings will be moved to an RRSP or RRIF in their names. In all other cases, the earnings on the RRSP will be added as income to your final tax return.

STRACHAN Lena Marie

March 1945 - January 31st, 2012 Lena, it has been 1 year since you left to be in your new home as an Angel in Heaven. I am sure you will be busy sewing or checking new songs to teach. I had finally found my last love with you Bay-bee, and the past year has not made any difference. There has not been a single day gone by, without my thinking about our life together. You so much enjoyed travelling, our regular Legion visits, the backyard and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our Grottoâ&#x20AC;? where we both spent leisure summer days. The great memories, and some of those images, are mine to keep. You were sadly missed in Penticton, and the Legion And yes, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saddle Up Dancersâ&#x20AC;? miss their â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;?. The Strachan Clan, The Foxcroft Clan, were all blessed with your gifted personality, and thatâ&#x20AC;Ś is for us to cherish also. At the end of each day, we always said to each other, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Have a good sleepâ&#x20AC;Ś I love youâ&#x20AC;?. Some things, just do not change easily. I know you will dance and teach up there too, Bay-bee. Bye, for nowâ&#x20AC;Ś and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Happy Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jimâ&#x20AC;? James E. Born in Ocean Falls, B.C., November 9, 1949. Past away peacefully, January 22, 2013. Predeceeded by parents, Jack and Beatha and younger sister, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Samâ&#x20AC;? Mary-Jane. Survived by brothers Dave (Marilyn) of Campbell River and Terry of Gibsons, B.C., sister, Gwen of Chemainus as well as nieces; Debbie (Tim), Deanna (Rod), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bobbieâ&#x20AC;? (Darren) and nephew Kelly. During his 63 years in Ocean Falls, he was always available to provide transportation and hospitality to those who returned for a second look since their exodus in the 1970â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 1980â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Jim was an avid ďŹ sherman and enjoyed the outdoors until his health deteriorated. When a true â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rain Personâ&#x20AC;? dies, the skies open up and the rains come down. - This happened in Ocean Falls the evening he died. There will be a celebration of his life in the near future. Instead of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations could be made to the Diabetes Association or a charity or choice.

March 14, 1983 January 30, 2005 If we could have a lifetime wish a dream that could come true. We would pray to God with all our hearts for yesterday and you. A thousand words canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring you back. We know because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried and neither will a million tears. We know because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve cried. You left behind our broken hearts and happy memories too. We never wanted memories... We only wanted you.

BC Hydro chairperson tours Hart Dam project BC Hydro’s Chair of the Board, Stephen Bellringer, spent the day in Campbell River on Monday. He toured the John Hart facilities and met

with local BC Hydro staff, and then informally met with First Nations, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the City of Campbell River.

“It was Mr. Bellringer’s first tour of the site and speaks to the importance of the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project to BC Hydro’s

3X5

Sell your stuff!

Board,” says BC Hydro spokesperson, Stephen Watson. “The day worked out very well in seeing the generating station, pipelines and dam, and then having a few

community meetings to help develop further perspectives. “John Hart and Site C are BC Hydro’s largest capital projects and it’s great that he came to Campbell River to

obtain a greater appreciation for the John Hart project. “ T h i s p ro j e c t i s not about increasing energy output, although it will increase by just over

seven per cent, it’s all about increasing the seismic withstand, providing reliable power to Vancouver Island customers for another 60 plus years, and protecting fish habitat.”

PAUL RUDAN/THE MIRROR

Gosha Marazhenko of the Campbell River Killer Whales competes in 100 metre breaststroke heat, last Saturday at the club’s Eliminator Swim Meet at Strathcona Gardens.

K-Whales host meet The Campbell River Killer Whales hosted clubs from all over Vancouver Island at annual Eliminator Swim Meet last weekend at Strathcona Gardens. The meet included swimmers from every level within the club, and it was the first time racing for a lot of our own Killer Whales. It was an exciting weekend, including the 50 Free Eliminator at the end of Saturday and the Mystery Medley race after Sundays racing. Saturday’s 50 Free Eliminator put the top six 50 freestylers, 13 and over girls, 13 and

over boys and 12 and unders in an elimination event. Killer Whales Conner Skuse and Mackenzie Padington place second in the 13 and over boys and girls finals, while Melayna Beaudin won the 12 and under category. Sunday afternoon the Mystery medley had the top 200m individual medley swimmers boys and girls race where the order of the four strokes is random and picked out of a hat just seconds before the race. Padington and Skuse were on top again, both winning their respective races.

It was another fast weekend in the pool for the Killer Whales with Jasmine Skuse breaking the 200 breaststroke 10-and-under record for the third time this season. Coaches Sarah Rudolf and David Palmer were very proud of their 10 and under swimmers, who all rose to the occasion and attacked all their races. Kaya Lathangue and Regan Moreau did a great job in their 100 freestyle, both doing flipturns at every wall. Next up for the Killer Whales is the AA Provincial Championships in Surrey, Feb. 8-10.

Karalyn Healey wins her heat in 100-metre breaststroke.
