Future of Somenos rural school not looking good Schools on notice: Valley’s traditional school of choice facing closure under all three restructuring options being considered Don Bodger

t least one family cat received oxygen from paramedics Monday after ¿re¿ghters attended reports of smoke coming from a Chemainus home. Felines were helped on scene of the 11:05 a.m. Elliot Street incident, across from Chemainus Sec-

ondary School, a witness said. It was unknown what injuries a cat or cats suffered during the Family Day incident. Chemainus ¿re¿ghters, backed by Crofton’s crew, attended the single-story home after neighbours reported smoke coming from the single-family dwelling. It was unknown by press time if the home sustained any damage. Rob Clark, North Cowichan’s assistant to the ¿re commissioner, was investigating the incident.

larm bells went off for Liz Compton when Somenos Rural Traditional School was left off a list of all elementary schools in the Central zone during last Wednesday’s School District 79 meeting. The co-chair of the school’s parent advisory council almost jumped out of her chair when she noticed the oversight on a slide on the overhead projector. Compton was assured it wasn’t forecasting anything, but then her worst fears were realized. When the three options for recon¿guration being considered by the district were shown, the end result was the same for Somenos Rural Traditional School: closure. “We’re the only school up there in every single option,’’ Compton pointed out during question period at the meeting. “We are not a small school with low enrolment. That is not a true picture of our community.’’ “I will be meeting with the Somenos community,’’ of¿cial trustee Mike McKay said. “I am not going to give quick responses to something so fundamental. “Somenos is on that option list, but that does not mean the closure of

Liz Compton, vice-chair of the Parent Advisory Council of Somenos Rural Traditional School, challenges School District 79 ofÄcials about the possible fate of the school that’s listed under three different scenarios for closure. Somenos is a given. I will be connecting with the Somenos community so we get to a better place on a foundation by which to build.’’ Compton took some solace from McKay’s comments. “I still have hope,’’ she said a day after the meeting. “Everyone has a different opinion of what’s going on in the district. We’re of value to the district. I always have hope. I have to.’’ Compton admitted she’s concerned and more than a little disappointed at seeing the fate of Somenos hanging in the balance. “All of this is happening without an elected board,’’ she said. “It makes it so

much harder for us.’’ Compton said a presentation was given Oct. 3 to McKay, highlighting Someonos’ location, size, program, environmental focus, uniforms, the community itself and much more. “It’s just an outline why we believe Somenos Rural Traditional School is an important part of the district,’’ she said. “We never got a response from the district.’’ Perceptions of a small enrolment and the school being run-down are false, Compton said. “Our enrolment has steadily increased.’’ There are 98 kids at the school currently in four divisions. more on page 18

Anti-Äsh farm campaign results in Duncan Superstore kerfufÅe Protest walk: Walkers asked to leave store after photos, debate Peter W. Rusland

F

ishing for samples of Atlantic salmon in Duncan’s Superstore got a group of First Nations folks — dressed in regalia and some costumes — asked to leave the premises Thursday, police say. “We received a call and attended after a report of a group of people causing a commotion, and refusing to leave the store,” said North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP Cpl. Jon Stuart. “Our members attended, and the group had already left the store. The people involved were spoken to,” he said, noting no charges were laid. “Any business has the right to refuse service, and to ask people to leave.” Duncan’s Superstore management referred News Leader Pictorial questions about the incident to Loblaw’s corporate brass. “Speci¿cally to the events on Feb. 7, certain customers were asked to leave because they were demonstrating inside the store, and their actions were disruptive,” Loblaw’s Brampton, Ont-based spokeswoman Julija Hunter’s email to the NLP states. “Because it’s important for us to maintain a safe

He also attended the situation at Superstore where Kwakwaka’wakw hereditary Chief Beau Dick, and a group of others, was examining and taking pictures of Atlantic salmon in the seafood department. Samples were purchased to be sent for testing by biologist Alexandra Morton, she said, as part of her ongoing campaign against ¿sh farming. Folks with Chief Dick

said Dick asked cameras be put away and were, though some shoppers continued snapping cell-phone pictures of the Aboriginal regalia. Thorne said the “verbal debate” could have been misconstrued by Superstore’s management as a protest in private premises, as at least one person in Dick’s group wore a ¿shhead mask. “It was a mistake that shouldn’t have happened,” Thorne said of the in-store incident, “and this could have been handled better by both sides, with (awareness of) policies and protocol.” Superstore sits on Cowichan Tribes land. RCMP of¿cers attended

Superstore, then talked with Chief Dick at nearby Quw’utsun’ Cultural Centre, Thorne said. “We all shook hands and the RCMP left,” he said, noting recommendations were made that perhaps Superstore managers should meet with Tribes leaders to revisit protocols and policies of both sides. Dick and family members were walking from near Port Hardy, and through Cowichan, last week en route to Sunday’s coppercutting ceremony on Victoria’s legislative lawn. The ceremony was described as a symbolic shaming of the federal government about harsh treatment of the environment and Native rights.

THE BIG EVENT

The Art of Healing and Healing of Art exhibit Organizers are pumped about this year’s VDay art exhibit, which can be viewed during the pre-show reception at Island Savings Centre’s PORTALS before Vagina Monologues hits the stage. Among many local artists displaying work is a Thetis Island collaborative of 13 women. They will be showcasing an installation of sculpture, text, photographs, and an artists’ book, which

unfolds 21 feet long deemed Codex Thetis Kora. Thetis Island’s Suzanne Sarioglu gathered interest for the project aimed at creating a piece of art which would embody concerns about the current erosion of environmental and social policies and their passion for this planet and life. “In discussions with family, friends and community it was generally agreed that most of us

feel at a loss about where to go and what to do given the rapidity with which things are changing environmentally, socially and economically,” Sarioglu explained. “It is my belief that it is in connecting with others and sharing our passion for the planet, in sharing our fear and our hope that empowerment can be fostered and making a difference can become a reality.”

Cowichan Rises in support of V-Day movement Monologues and more: several events planned as community battles violence against women

n the beginning, one could argue V-Day was something that had to be brought to Cowichan. Three years later, however, it is crystal clear Cowichan has risen to the occasion. Instead of one group leading the charge promoting this global activist movement to end violence against women and girls — the V stands for victory, valentine and vagina — many groups are creating their own celebrations, all being staged under the umbrella label Cowichan Rises. “When we sat down to talk about this year’s V-Day celebration, we found out there were already actions being planned, so we decided our role was to support the community’s actions,” said Cowichan Women Against Violence spokeswomen Tina Schoen. “The actions that are happening on (Feb.) 14 have a real grassroots community feel.” CWAV will be the main bene¿ciary of funds raised through a smorgasbord of events including Cowichan Theatre’s production of Vagina Monologues, an art show, a silent auction and a celebration in Duncan’s city square. Schoen said the keen enthusiasm from Nika Stafford, co-owner of the Matraea Centre, and Lynn Weaver of Shawnigan’s MoonDance Dynamic Arts School is ¿ring the city square event Feb. 14. Folks are being encouraged to meet at Matraea at noon for the reading of an Eve Ensler poem, before marching to city square for speakers, singing and dancing, Stafford explained. “And it would be great if people could make signs to tell us why they’re here and why they’re rising,” Stafford

said. Stafford hopes folks will bring the entire family. Her decision to step up to the plate this year was mostly because violence against women is dear to her heart. “It’s a touching thing for me,” she said. “I suffered abuse as a child, so did my mother, grandmother, and most likely my great-grandmother too.” She’d also set a goal for herself to help more with community events. “I’m sort of building a plane while it’s Àying in the air,” she said. “But I’m meeting a lot of people who are interested and I’ve very much been interested for awhile in helping.” The community collective in organizing this year’s series of events is a true testament to people’s passion agreed Cowichan Theatre arts and culture boss Kirsten Schrader. Schrader is involved in the production of Ensler’s Vagina Monologues which hits the stage Feb. 16. She has also partnered with CWAV in its events, including The Art of Healing and Healing of Art exhibit, a photo contest, and silent auction. And Schrader couldn’t also be more thrilled with the local cast signed on to Kurt Knock recite Ensler’s script.

ench Elementary Grade 2 teacher Ruth Bowman calls it a “fancy pencil.” But what it really is, is the world’s ¿rst interactive whiteboard. And as part of the SMART Collaborative Classroom program, Bench students now have one of these boards installed in every classroom. Students have been testing the new equipment, which was installed during the Christmas holidays, for about two weeks now, explained Bowman, an of¿cial educator and trainer for the SMART program. “It went really well and we had so many people come out and of course the kids were thrilled to be the centre of attention,” she said of an of¿cial unveiling ceremony Tuesday morning. “Bench Elementary is the only school in B.C. and Western Canada to be a part of the (SMART program),” she said. Bench, now an of¿cial SMART Showcase School with the Canadianbased company SMART Technologies Inc. has for the past ¿ve years been using SMART education solutions to engage students and improve learning outcomes. But instead of only a couple whiteboards featured in a few classrooms, the entire school’s jumped on board, with whiteboards in every class and a classroom dedicated as the “Collaborative Classroom.” The Cowichan Bay school, which

he extent of injuries from Friday’s single-vehicle wreck, just north of Duncan, were unknown by press time. The accident happened at about 1:45 p.m. just south of Peter Baljet’s GMC dealership, said News Leader Pictorial lensman Andrew Leong, when a late-model southbound Subaru left the highway, entered the ditch and sustained an unknown amount of damage. Paramedics and police attended the scene. Details about the crash’s cause were still under investigation.

Duncan man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of inappropriate touching of young girls at the Cowichan Aquatic Centre, police say. Charges have not been laid. The 25-year-old suspect’s name has not been released. On Feb. 2, North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP began investigating two incidents of inappropriate touching of young girls that allegedly occurred at the pool.

o satisfy bean counters, plant beans. This simple analogy is what North Cowichan council and the school board have done in their long-standing joint-use agreement — saving taxpayers big dough for some 15 years. Basically, both bodies agree to share their buildings, ¿elds and gear to duck duplication. You use our hockey arena; we use your school classrooms for community meetings and courses. Simple, cheap and logical. That’s why we want to see far more of such congenial cooperation between our local leaders and community groups, not turf guarding and excuses not to. Knock down North Cowichan appears to be something of a leader in ¿nancially Àexible walls and thinking. open doors It’s now poised to ink a deal with the school board for building Mural Town’s long-awaited skate park at vacant Chemainus elementary school. Council also green-lighted a community garden project — led by Cowichan Green Community — in Kinsmen Park. Let’s keep using workable ideas to break barriers of bureaucracy and stale policies. We have examples of things working well. It’s all about community groups working with local government and saving taxpayers’ scarce money. Bean counters like that. They’ll like it even more if government ¿nds ways to work with businesses and grow our tax base, without sacri¿cing our environment. Doing that could work the same way as the successful sharing model between council and the school board. You ¿x our building; we ¿x your driveway. Listening to citizens, students, seniors, First Nations, community groups and business folks could let us act on smart opportunities — while stomping stagnation. Tough times demand open minds. Maybe valley bean counters have some ideas to share too.

ou’re not alone. That saying’s playing on repeat in my head as I transition back to my role as a reporter for the News Leader Pictorial from a year off on maternity leave and having to leave the little dude at daycare. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job and the adult time and I know Jack’s in the greatest of hands, but there are still reasons to whine and feel downright horrible during this transitional phase. There’s the jolt to your ¿nely tuned schedule, the one you’d perfected over the past year and ¿nally felt at ease with and not to forget the bonus night-time work packing lunches and daycare supplies. And, ¿nally, there’s the emotional toll from having to walk away from your wee one holding his arms out and bawling to you.

My son’s allowed to be a baby about it. But he is a baby. I, on the other hand, have to suck it up. *** “Looking back I laugh about how crazy I was at the time and how I felt like my world was ending,” my post-natal ¿tness buddy Lyndie Kendall tells me. “Now three months into it, it’s exhausting but Justin loves his daycare and new friends and I’m really enjoying my ‘adult’ time.” “I found myself wondering all day if she was looking for me or crying all day, or if she was scared,” said family friend Trina Fearon, who’s now well-past the transitional phase and reports her little girl’s now also been crowned ‘Miss Independent.’ “No longer does she require just mom for everything, now she calls for Luke almost as much as me and it sure makes things a lot easier,” said fellow momma Krystle Pritchett about daughter Peyton. She points to her decision to pick up evening shifts at a local restaurant so

Family Day was snorted at in some circles as a blatant vote-gathering ploy by Premier Christy Clark. That may be true, but the extra day off was certainly enjoyed by most during the weekend. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a lot available locally for families to do. Even the Cowichan Aquatic Centre was closed. Hopefully more will be going on next year.

her hubby who was home from his daytime work shift could watch and bond with their daughter. For momma Candace Elliot, going back to the daily work grind didn’t go as smoothly as she’d hoped because of breastfeeding issues. “When I decided to try and get some shifts back at work I realized that meant Kayleigh would need to take a bottle. She was only about six months old at the time and was always just breastfed,” Elliot explained, adding she’s picked up shifts now that Kayleigh’s more than a year old and not feeding as often. For my pre-natal, post-natal ¿tness instructor and nutrition go-to girl Kathleen Neilson, there was no such thing as maternity leave. “Being self-employed I don’t get a paid maternity leave so Henry and I returned to work when he was only 17 days old,” she explained. “I’m learning to function on next-to-no-sleep and how to discreetly breastfeed my baby,

(thank God for hooter hiders) while still trying to appear professional.” Friend Ann-Marie Fi¿eld hit the nail on the head with her experience. “Getting an education is important and I hope my kids will follow in mommy and daddy’s footsteps,” she said on her return to school to ¿nish her degree in teaching. “I no longer feel riddled with guilt but feel like I have a greater sense of purpose and proud that I am achieving my goals.” “It does not matter the quantity of time you spend with your children but the quality of time spent together.” Ashley Degraaf is a News Leader Pictorial reporter who returned to work last month after a year on maternity leave.

Public service gets unfairly better wages

Non-Natives living on borrowed land

Dear editor Re: Ray Tony Charlie’s letter. Treaties were between First Nations and the Crown. NonNative people are here by the hospitality of First Nations. Treaties were signed before Canada became a country. The Canadian government has no right to change those treaties without the Crown being represented. We have been stealing and selling their resources and getting rich at it. If Harper succeeds in breaking the treaties, all land reverts to First Nations. Then the rest of us better start applying for squatter’s rights. John McDonald

In my opinion: A statistical analysis

Duncan

Relationships and accountability come before more ‘stuff’

Dear editor Your Feb. 6 article about the Idle No More demonstration quotes William Pierre, who wants Prime Minister Stephen Harper to hear Aboriginal demands for fair treaty settlements and “give us all the stuff we’re asking for.” His request carries all the poignancy of the bitter truth about the state of Aboriginal affairs in Canada. He and many of those supporting the Idle No More movement feel disenfranchised, marginalized, and ignored. But just exactly what “stuff” does he want? I think most Canadians want to settle treaties and escape the recrimination and constant reminders of past injustices to Native people. But how can the Canadian government respond in any meaningful way to such an inchoate and blurry request as that voiced by William Pierre? I am a Canadian Native too, ninth generation on my father’s side. However, I expect absolutely nobody to give me any “stuff.” I paid for an education. Jobs are available for anyone who is quali¿ed and wants to work. On the other hand, where is there any accountability for the $9.2 billion annually dedicated to the Department of Indian Affairs? What happens to the $52 million given outright annually to the Cowichan Tribes in Duncan? It seems to me those sums can buy an awful lot of “stuff”, but why does so little of it trickle down to the tribal members? I think the Conservative government has been more than fair in meeting with and responding to Aboriginal issues. It’s important for Canadians to understand there is little cohesion among the demonstrators and the Aboriginal leaders across the country. What is possible is to continue with settling land claims treaties for the local tribes

FSAs instituted to evaluate teachers not students Dear editor Liberal MLA John Les’ Feb. 6 “opinion” reads a lot like the B.C. Liberal campaign for the up-coming provincial election. It is also deliberately misleading. The Fundamental Skills Assessment was not designed and imposed by the Liberals as a guidance tool for individual students. As Mr. Les knows very well, the B.C. Liberal government imposed the FSA to evaluate teacher success and to compare the relative success of schools and school districts. He should also know the kinds of evaluation tools used by educators to assist students needing support are not the same as external exams designed to evaluate school program success. The FSA does provide information about student performance, but it is not a “vital” counselling tool to m iimprove individual student performance. A. A D. Fisher Cobble C Hill

Don’t D exaggerate value of FSAs for individual i learners

Dear D editor Imagine you’re a hockey coach. It’s the ¿fth sseason that the 10-year-old players have been in yyour house league. Mid-season you give them a sskills test that’s required by players in their ¿fth

and eighth seasons. Somebody else marks it, and you receive an assessment sheet that broadly identi¿es: offensive skills; defensive skills; and knowledge of the rules. In each category you learn if a player is not yet meeting expectations, meeting expectations, or exceeding expectations. And that’s all you’re told. My questions to you: 1. If you learned a player named Billy, who lets every forward skate past him while he’s on defence, was not yet meeting expectations for defensive skills, would you not have already noticed this obvious fact? 2. Would all the coaches in the house league have waited more than four years for the results of this skills test before intervening and giving Billy some personalized coaching to improve his defensive skills? 3. Does the broadly stated result, “not yet meeting expectations,” offer you any useful information to diagnose where exactly Billy is going wrong on defence or how Billy might learn best? My comments are about pedagogy, not politics. If everybody wants to amass provincial statistics through FSAs, ¿ne. But don’t exaggerate the test’s usefulness for individual intervention. FSAs test numeracy, reading, and writing with as broadly stated results as above. As the government observes, the FSA measures “cumulative learning,” and is “not comprehensive or diagnostic.” I don’t want the intervention of my child’s progress to occur on a cumulative basis after ¿ve years of school. I want it to occur as it does in the classroom: regularly, comprehensively, and I want it coupled with meaningful diagnostics that pinpoint how my child can be coached, not sorted and predicted.

ore than three years after the end of the recession and British Columbia’s provincial government continues to struggle with de¿cits, which as of the last quarterly update will likely exceed $1.5 billion. If the provincial and municipal governments in B.C. are serious about tackling de¿cits and prioritizing resources, they must reform spending. A central part of any such initiative must be reviewing public sector wages and bene¿ts to ensure they are comparable with private sector equivalents. There are both economic and fairness issues to consider. Principal among these is the fairness of having those in the public sector receive a premium paid for by those in the private sector who receive less overall compensation for similar positions. The traditional trade-off was the public sector received lower wages than the private sector but that this was offset by more generous bene¿ts. As our analysis of Statistics Canada data reveals, that bargain has been undone. The public sector now enjoys a wage premium and, more than likely, more generous bene¿ts as well. When we compare the average wage in the public sector in B.C., including federal, provincial, and local workers, it is 37.5 % higher than the private sector. However, this ¿gure doesn’t account for differences like education, the nature of the position, the experience of the workers, etc. Once we control for these factors, the average wage premium enjoyed by the public sector is 13.6 %. Of course compensation includes much more than just wages. Employee compensation is based on bene¿ts, including health, dental, retirement savings, job security, etc. Unfortunately, Statistics Canada does not collect comprehensive data on bene¿ts. The data that is available, however, indicates a fairly generous bene¿ts package for the public sector compared to the private sector. For example, in 2011, the latest year for which comprehensive data is available, 89.8 % of public sector workers in B.C. were covered by a registered pension compared to 19.4 % of private sector workers. More revealing, for those covered by a registered pension, 95.6 % in the public sector enjoyed de¿ned-bene¿t pensions guaranteeing a certain level of bene¿ts in retirement in 2011. compared to 49.3 % of private-sector workers. Another bene¿t for which comparable data is available is the age of retirement. Speci¿cally, on average, public sector workers in B.C. retire almost three years earlier than private sector workers. The gap jumps to 4.2 years if the median rather than the average is used. A ¿nal metric is job losses — a good proxy for job security. In 2011, 4.3 % of private sector employment in B.C. experienced job loss. This is more than seven times higher than the 0.6 % of public sector employment experiencing job losses. Public sector workers in B.C. clearly enjoy higher wages and, more than likely, more generous bene¿ts than comparable workers in the private sector. As British Columbians struggle with their de¿cits and spending, it is imperative that comparable compensation for the public sector become part of the solution rather than part of the problem. Jason Clemens and Amela Karabegovic are co-authors of Comparing Public and Private Sector Compensation in British Columbia, released recently by the Fraser Institute.

Health concerns force North Cowichan neighbourhood into sewers North Cowichan: VIHA report cites failing septic systems Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

A

ll homeowners on Meadow Park Road, Meadow Place and Meadow Park Crescent and part of Roome Road must now pay $12,008 toward North Cowichan’s municipal sewage-treatment system, council ruled Wednesday. That decision followed heated com-

ments from some residents, plus health data showing some failing septic systems. While folks must pay the $12,008 — or $1,157 a year for 15 years — they can chose not to hook onto the municipal system, unless their systems are failing, explained North Cowichan engineer John Mackay. “They don’t have to connect as long as they don’t have a (septic system) problem, and Vancouver Island Health Authority decides if they have a problem or not,” he said, noting hook-up carries a $983 fee. Some residents may not connect, since they maintain and pump their systems

regularly. But councillors got a petition from 18 residents requesting extending sewage lines to Tzouhalem Road’s secondarytreatment lagoons. “It’s mandatory,” administrator Dave Devana said of folks wishing to opt out and duck the $12,008. Councillor Al Siebring wanted homeowners to take responsibility for their systems, while provincial agents cited health issues. VIHA’s dye tests in 26 Meadow Park Road homes showed water entering ditches, bounded by soils poorly suited to handling septic wastes that eventually

VIHA didn’t test that Àuid for fecal contamination, but its testing shows septic systems at 15 of the 26 homes are working satisfactorily; two are hazardous; nine had saturated ground. Saturation means the system’s not working, VIHA’s Erwin Dyck noted. “The order is to correct the (health) hazard.” VIHA of¿cials noted all of the area’s aging septic systems will fail eventually. Mackay said the worst-case scenario would see VIHA demand the septic systems be ¿xed. “We have no jurisdiction over septic systems in North Cowichan; that’s VIHA.”

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice On page 9 of the February 8 flyer, the Sony 300-Watt Smart 3D Bluray Home Theatre System (BDVE190) (WebCode: 10202049) was advertised with incorrect specs. Please be advised that this home theatre system is 300-Watt, NOT 1000-Watt, as previously advertised. Also, on page 4, the Koodo logo was incorrectly advertised with the BlackBerry Z10 product. Please be advised that Future Shop will not be carrying the BlackBerry Z10 with Koodo at this time. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused our valued customers.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC MEETINGS SOUTH COWICHAN ZONING BYLAW NO. 3520 Applying to the following CVRD communities: Electoral Area A – Mill Bay/Malahat Electoral Area B - Shawnigan Lake Electoral Area C – Cobble Hill This is to advise that the Cowichan Valley Regional District will be holding three public meetings, one in each of the above-noted communities, to provide an opportunity for local residents, business owners and others affected to review the draft South Cowichan Zoning Bylaw and to participate in a question and answer session as well as provide suggestions and comments regarding the proposed Bylaw. Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 would regulate the use and density of all land, use, siting and density of buildings and the use of the surface of water throughout Electoral Areas A, B and C. It would replace the existing Zoning Bylaws in the three communities, namely Area A Zoning Bylaw No. 2000 (adopted in 1999), Area B Zoning Bylaw No. 985 (adopted in 1986) and Area C Zoning Bylaw No. 1405 (adopted in 1992). The purpose of Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 is to implement the goals, objectives and policies of the South Cowichan Of¿cial Community Plan, adopted in July 2011. Because Zoning Bylaw No. 3520 is designed to implement the Of¿cial Community Plan, there is no requirement for a public hearing under the Local Government Act. The CVRD Regional Board has decided that in place of a hearing, a series of public meetings will be held, which will be conducted similarly to a hearing, in order to provide more opportunities for public input in the affected communities than would be available with a single hearing. OPEN HOUSES/PUBLIC MEETINGS SCHEDULE: Shawnigan Lake Date: Location: Open House: Public Meeting: Cobble Hill Date: Location: Open House: Public Meeting: Mill Bay/Malahat Date: Location: Open House: Public Meeting:

Monday, February 18, 2013 Shawnigan Lake Community Centre, Gymnasium 2804 Shawnigan Lake Road, Shawnigan Lake BC 5:30-6:30 p.m. 7:00 p.m.

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 Kerry Park Recreation Centre, Denis McLean Room 1035 Shawnigan Mill Bay Road, Mill Bay BC 5:30-6:30 p.m. 7:00 p.m.

At the public meetings, CVRD staff will make a presentation regarding the proposed Zoning Bylaw. CVRD Directors Walker, Fraser and Giles will be present at each meeting to hear your comments and concerns. A summary of the proceedings of all three meetings will be recorded by CVRD staff and presented to the CVRD Board before consideration of Third Reading of Zoning Bylaw No. 3520. Copies of the proposed Bylaw and related maps may be viewed on the CVRD website at the following URL: http://www.cvrd.bc.ca/index.aspx?nid=1487 or viewed in person at the CVRD of¿ces located at 175 Ingram Street, Duncan BC, during the hours of 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding public holidays.

B

y the way, did you hear: • NLP shooter extraordinaire (and ofÂżcial heart breakfast photographer) Andrew Leong has always had a soft spot for the Heart & Stroke Foundation, but he’s stepping it up a notch this month. Andrew is offering a mini portrait session plus the client’s choice of one digital Âżle, all for $80 (valued at $150), with all proceeds going to Heart and Stroke. “I have volunteered for the Annual Celebrity Heart Breakfast group photo gig for the past 10 years for Colleen Marsel and can’t help thinking about those who put their heart and soul in helping the foundation much more and even longer than I have, such as Preston Bruce and Mike Calijouw,â€? he said. For your shot, contact Andrew at 250-748-9969. • Speaking of Colleen Marsel, as she delivered her Heart & Stroke Breakfast tickets she noticed several school children sitting on the cold, damp ground near Queen of Angels School, presumably waiting for rides home. She wonders if there is a way we could get the kids a bench. • The Bigleaf Maple Syrup Festival maple syrup contest at the B.C. Forest Discovery Centre is over.

Therapeutic horse: A big Hawaiian-theme party planned for Feb. 13 to honour CTRA’s finest Don Bodger

ac is truly one of a kind in terms of therapeutic horses and will be receiving the send-off he so richly deserves next week. The Norwegian Fjord’s short, sturdy stature made him an ideal partner for therapeutic riders at the Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association for more than 12 years. CTRA is honouring Mac, who turns 25 years old in March, with a Hawaiianthemed send-off party next Wednesday, Feb. 13 from 2 to 4 p.m. at CTRA’s facility on Providence Farm. “He was a therapeutic horse, also a sport horse and also did recreational stuff as well,’’ said head instructor and Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association coach Lisa Pink. “He would specialize in all three things. He wore a few hats, let’s put it that way.’’ Mac, also known as Heljo’s Image, was born at Heljo Fjord Ranch in

With Mac’s advancing age, CTRA felt it was time to ease his workload. “He looks wonderful out there,’’’ said Pink. “But we do know from the vet, he’s just sore in the joints so we didn’t think it was fair to use him anymore. We just don’t want him to hurt doing his job.’’ More than a few tears are sure to be shed when everyone at CTRA bids Mac a fond farewell. The public is invited to join the celebrations, as Mac gets ‘leid off.’ But no one needs to feel badly for Mac because he’ll be taken care of well in his remaining years by a family that already has other horses. One of them is a special horse considered by CTRA volunteers as Mac’s ‘girlfriend.’ “He gets to retire with her,’’ quipped Pink. Finding a replacement for Mac, however, will be dif¿cult because he really is one of a kind. “We have been trying for probably the last six to seven years to ¿nd similar to him and still no one has ¿lled his boots,’’ said Pink.

“That’s not the actual picture,’’ Compton said. “We turned kids away last year. There’s no room. The district closed our classroom. We could have ¿lled the school.’’ Compton said one of the teachers was relocated to another school and a classroom closed in May. As a result, the school can’t accept any more out-of-catchment kids, she added. The school district’s report Today, Tomorrow and the Road Ahead suggests the Somenos program does not appear to be gaining in size as the staff and parents had hoped. “On average, between four and six out-ofarea requests are put forward for approval each year,’’ the report indicates. The report goes on to mention the facility is in need of signi¿cant repair. Complete replacement of the domestic water supply and building envelope are two major projects.

The Rural Traditional Program is pegged for relocation to Alex Aitken in two of the restructuring scenarios. But Alex Aitken is full already, Compton said, so it would be impossible to ¿t more kids in there. “There’s more questions than answers at this point.’’ Compton has a hunch about the district’s plans regarding recon¿guration. “Of course, I’m very biased and jaded,’’ she said. “I think they want to close the little schools quick and easily and move on with con¿guration — maybe not. There’s no timeline. How do you plan for anything? “Because there’s so many questions, there’s Don Bodger no timeline, it makes me really wary what the Trustee Mike McKay says the closure of Somenos Rural heck they’re doing.’’ Traditional School is not a given. May is not the time for closures, Compton stressed. “It should start in October, November. That’s Capital expenditures that would be avoided in the next ¿ve years if the school is closed are why I think it’s kind of about the closure, not the rest of it.’’ estimated at just shy of $500,000.

ating on a budget doesn’t have to mean an endless rotation of ramen noodles and boxes of macaroni-and-cheese. “Healthy eating really doesn’t have to break the bank,” says Carol Dombrow, a registered dietitian for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “Once you know what to look for, you will realize that eating well can be inexpensive, easy and quick.” Carol shares some tips for healthy dishes on a budget: • Keep healthy staples, like legumes, whole-grain pasta and herbs and spices on hand. • Always shop with a list and a plan. Download the Health Check Recipe Helper app at heartandstroke.ca/mobileapps. • Buy seasonal vegetables and fruit and check out the frozen and canned lower sodium varieties.

• Cook healthy meals in batches and freeze. • One-pot meals, such as stews, chili or soups are a great way to get your nutrition, while stretching your budget. • Check your cupboards and refrigerator before going shopping. • Check for coupons and the weekly flyers for deals on healthy items. • Eat before you shop. This will help you avoid buying foods not on your shopping list. For more information on healthy recipes and tips, visit healthcheck.org.

rtifacts will greet tourism as taxpayers handed Chemainus Valley Historical Society $150,000 to help build Mural Town’s new visitor information centre. The infocentre’s relocation grant came Wednesday from North Cowichan councillors wishing to keep the tourism facility inside the society’s museum being expanded by about 1,500 square feet. The Chamber of Commerce’s busy visitor centre will rent space in the revamped museum before downtown’s old ¿re hall — now housing the visitor centre — is Àattened for Chemainus’ new library. Mayor Jon Lefebure explained the $150,000 — from the municipal land development fund — is in North Cowichan’s 2014 budget. Council noted the grant will also help the historical society leverage other grants for the museum’s makeover at the Waterwheel parking lot. Also, more tourist traf¿c at the museum could boost the facility’s operating funds, the mayor noted. —Peter W. Rusland

Move over, Betty Grable Pin-up style: Fun and glamourous look takes a lot of effort but returns in style time and again Eliza Faulkner

News Leader Pictorial

T

he pin-up girl is a look ubiquitous with the likes of Betty Grable, Marilyn Monroe, and in recent times, Dita Von

Teese. It’s a look that requires a lot of maintenance. Hair is perfectly coiffed; lipstick is the most vibrant shade of red, and an hourglass ¿gure essential. It’s also a look that has come back time and time again and it has even caught onn right here in the Cowichan Valley. And while it might be a lot off work to adhere to a true pin-up lifestyle, yle, here are a few fun and easy ways ys to work the look into your February wardrobe. The Hair

After months of wearing a toque, it’ss easy to get into a major hair rut. With the weather surely about to warm up, try your hand at a Rockabilly-inspired do. Using bobby pins and a curling iron, and with a bit of backcombing, the look is surp surprisingly fresh and easy to do. For new ideas and in inspirations ask your hhair stylist for a few qui quick tips the next time yo you go in for a trim. The Makeup Invest in a good-qu good-quality red lipstick and be prepared tto spend some time perfecting your loo look. Thinkk pencilled-in eyebrows, thick oor even bla false eyelashes, a sweep of black eyeliner and lots of red lipstick lipstick. Short on time? The lipstick is really all you need. more on page 211

Also something to make note of: Fabrications on Kenneth Street is now under new ownership. Jane Spencer took over Jan. 1 and looks forward to bringing her customers their favourite brands as well as fabulous new ones.

Capture your own pin-up look in personal calendar

In Your Fashion

from page 20

The Nails Made famous most recently by Dita Von Teese, the half-moon manicure is an elegant an unexpected way to wear your nails. It consists of leaving that little white ‘half-moon’ shaped area at the bottom of your nail bed white, while painting the rest of your nail brightly. If you don’t have a naturally large ‘moon’ it can easily be faked using a small strip of cello tape or a nail guide from any drugstore. Red is the go-to pin-up colour, but make it your own with your favourite polish. The Clothes Fifties-style dresses and anything that accentuates the waist is what this style is all about. The best place to ¿nd these are in vintage and thrift stores. If dresses aren’t your thing, think highwaisted cigarette pants and bralettes in polka-dot prints. High-waisted vintage inspired bikinis are all the rage and are easy to ¿nd in most swimsuit shops nowadays. The Lifestyle If you’re a true pin-up girl at heart then you might be ready for the lifestyle as well as the look. Make sure the next car you buy is pastel-hued and vintage. Paint your kitchen peppermint green and your bathroom bubblegum pink. Shop vintage, dress-up, and be sure to make some time for a long beauty routine.

cious that I just couldn’t get it out of my mind for months. These chocolates popped up again while I was at the Sunrise Waldorf Christmas Fair in December. I bought a $10 bag and quickly polished them off. I have eaten a lot of chocolate. In fact I consider it a food group. Once upon a time I worked in a London chocolate shop (where I ate a lot of chocolate). Needless to say, chocolate is good, but can fall easily into the ‘just another chocolate bar brand I keep stashed in my cupboard’ category. This is not the case with Pearl Chocolates, the chocolate brainchild of local schoolteacher, caterer, mother, and chocolatier, Patty Doyle. These are the kind of chocolates that are so particularly scrumptious you may begin having mini fantasies about them. No joke. Pearl Chocolates started in 2006 after Doyle had her last child and was looking for a way to spend afternoons at home. Using local Àavours such as Tea Farm teas and Cowichan Bay Sea Salt, and by blending together her

own chocolate recipes, Pearl Chocolates was born. At ¿rst the chocolates were sold mainly at markets and fairs around Vancouver Island and were a favourite at the Victoria Chocolate Festival. But not long after Pearl was born, the confections started popping up in a few local restaurants in Duncan and at Plenty in Victoria. All of Pearl Chocolates are made locally in small batches using single origin chocolate from Columbia. Doyle personnally creates new Àavours and hand-dips every chocolate herself. As a self-taught chef and caterer, she naturally enjoys testing new recipes. Her personal favourite; the Panforte, combines candied citrus peels, dried fruit, hazelnuts, and almonds. (Imagine a very small chocolate-coated Italian fruitcake and you’ve got the idea). If you’re a newbie to the world of Pearl Chocolates, the Grey Sea Salt Lavender Caramel is a failsafe option to try your ¿rst time. However, if you’ve had the delight of sampling these ¿ne confections before now, make sure to give the other Àavours equal attention.

BIGGEST WINTER

CLEARANCE EVENT IN OUR HISTORY!

The Cognac TrufÀeStuffed Fig is the perfect petitfour for any occasion, as is the Panforte. For an everyday guiltfree treat, keep a slab of the Omega-3 rich Raw Chocolate in your fridge (admittedly, dly, I just bought a pound. Wordss can’t describe just how good the he stuff is). As a busy mother of three and as a full-time teacher, Doyle is currently only taking personal orders. But don’t fret; a Pearl Chocolate Shop on the island is something she would love to do in the future. And

Good Taste

while that may be a few years word for it away, take my w and place your ppersonal order. Perhaps it’s the love Doyle puts into eeach batch of chocolates she hand-dips, ha but once you’ve tried these th incredible works of chocolate art you’ll never look at chocolate tthe same way again. In a sea full of mediocre, medioc megaproduced chocolate brands, bran these little bites of love truly are a rare and delicious treat. To place an order for Pearl Chocolates, you can email Patty at stopecks@telus.net.

Violin talent featured in February St. Mike’s concert

ARTISTS

Mark Lupin had a university scholarship for violin by age six, made his television debut by age seven, and was concertmaster of the Canadian National Youth Orchestra at the age of 15. He has studied with Jascha Heifetz in Beverly Hills, Ivan Galamian in New York, Joseph Gingold and Franco Gulli in Bloomington, Indiana and Ranald Shean in Edmonton.

On Sunday, the acclaimed violinist will be the featured attraction at Flames and Embers, the latest edition of the St. Michael’s Presents concert series in Chemainus.

Accompanied by Carla Dodek on piano, Lupin will perform Guiseppe Tartini’s Devil’s Trill Sonata in G minor, Serge Rachmaninoff’s Morceaux de Salon Op. 6, and Cesar Franck’s Sonata in A major. The show starts at 2 p.m., Feb. 17 in the intimate setting of 1891 heritage St. Michael’s Church in downtown Chemainus. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 at the door. Call 250-748-8383.

ove as Neruda so beautifully articulates was was very much in the air at the Cowichan Writer’s Group’s romance-themed open mike night at the Old Firehouse Wine Bar last week. “It was very much the idea behind Love Actually,” explained Cheryl Baudin, a member of the writer’s group since its inception, citing the hit 2003 British romantic comedy. “It was clear with our member’s pieces there’s love of all kinds.” Members of the group, which was created by Cowichan writer and publisher Eliza Hemingway, poured their hearts out with excerpts from novels and short stories and even sang classic love songs at the event organized with wine bar owner Jeff Downie. “We thought it would be nice to have a romantic theme with Valentine’s Day just around the corner,” explained Baudin last week. “For writers, whether you’re a poet, singer, songwriter, write short stories or a novel, romance is often a common theme. “And as writers we draw on our personal experiences, so we’re bound to have some element of our own personal life that comes in to make it more real for other people,” Baudin said. “The beauty of open mike is it gives the op-

Cheryl Baudin settles in to perform House of Dreams, shortly after reading a few pages from Kissed on a Boat during Cowichan Writer’s Group mike night at the Old Fireplace Wine Bar on Feb. 6. portunity to share something that’s personal to you in hopes to strike a chord with others.” Chemainus writer Carol Anne Lawry chose a more paternal love piece to share during the open mike night. “The piece I read was probably not your usual ‘romance,’ a little dark, to say the least,” she explained. “Essentially, I sketched two disintegrating relationships, a couple with and a couple without children. The childless male is watching the other man’s children and, therefore, the mother is watched as well,” she added of her piece Waves. “I think we often read of women envious of another woman’s children, but not often of men coveting another man’s children.

“I am fond of presenting views that make us rethink our assumptions,” she said. The author of Journey, Lawry loves the “wealth of information, perspective, expertise, and skills shared,” being a member of Cowichan’s group. As does member Ron Rosewood. Rosewood could be Cowichan’s romance a¿cionado. Having two romance-themed books, Melissa’s Wish List and the more recent Postdated Romance, under his belt, and also being an active member of the Vancouver Island Romance Chapter of the Writers of America, means Rosewood is not shy one bit about sharing his work with others.

“It doesn’t really bother me at all,” he said, noting writer’s must have thick skin for criticism that comes when writing hits the air and streets. Rosewood sang classic tug-at-the-heart-strings tunes, Frank Sinatra’s My Way and Elvis Presleys’ Are You Lonesome Tonight last week. Baudin sang as well and read excerpts from the group’s published short story collection Kissed on a Boat. The group meets every ¿rst and third Wednesday of the month at 6 p.m. at the Cowichan Library and welcome new members with open arms.

Forbes, who turns 60 today (Feb. 13), opened his encyclopedic memory bank about making folk-roots music with famous players, plus unsung heroes. Forbes eventually sold out his own shows, headlined most major Canadian folk festivals, and morphed in to a beloved acoustic performer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the bean counters lost control for awhile, it was a wonderful time in music.â&#x20AC;?

Roy Forbes came into prominence during the 1970s when he was known by his nickname, Bim.

The

he musician formerly known as Bim returns to Duncan for Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rare solo show. Roy Forbes plans to pull numbers from the raft of recordings heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built since leaving his native Dawson Creek, B.C. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I left school in July â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;71 and have always made my living from music from that day forth,â&#x20AC;? he said from home in North Vancouver. Forbes changed his name from Bim years ago, but doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind if folks use his old stage title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was an evolutionary thing. Bim was a nickname I had as a kid, and with my rock band, The Crystal Ship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came to Vancouver (1971) it was a natural to use it, but as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;70s progressed my

Folks whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recorded Forbesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; songs span Susan Jacks, Sylvia Tyson, Matt Minglewood, Valdy and Ulrich â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and more recently, Shawn Colvin, Hart Rouge, Tracey Brown, Cindy Church, Laurie Lewis, Kathy Kallick, Suzie Vinnick and Norman Foote. Forbes has stopped counting songs heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s penned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like most of us, except maybe Bruce Springsteen, the writing is slower now than in my â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;20s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when one comes along, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually a good one and you gotta leap on it for sure.

BEAMAN, Herbert Lindsay Dec. 15, 1922 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Feb. 6, 2013 Born in Birmingham, England. Died at Cowichan District Hospital after a long struggle with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Survived by wife Lynda Margo. Many thanks to the nursing staff on 2 East & 2 West for their kindness, diligence and good humour. And to Dr. Ibrahim profound appreciation for allowing him to go gently into the good night. Cremation. No service by request. Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing. And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb. And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Sunrise Waldorf team dynamic

S

unrise Waldorf School doesn’t have a gym so its midget basketball team practices in a hall or outside on a cement court, draws on two grades for suf¿cient players and also includes girls. Despite some apparent drawbacks, the basketball team — known as the Biodynamics — was indeed dynamic to win the Mid-Island midget boys’ basketball championship with a 32-30 victory over Mount Prevost School Thursday at George Bonner School. “It means a type of farming,’’ said Sunrise Waldorf coach Kevin McDuff of the team’s nickname. It was a proud time for the school’s team to prevail in the tournament. We had a huge crowd out there,’’ said McDuff. “We de¿nitely have a lot of excitement at the school.’’ Getting to this stage took a lot of work. “This is the second year we’ve had a team,’’ said McDuff. “We had a parent who anonymously donated the money to buy uniforms.’’ McDuff pretty much had to start from scratch with most of the team. There were nine Grade 8s and four Grade 7s on the team. The school only has a total of 13 students in Grade 8 and 12 in Grade 7. “Most of them had never played seriously or know anything about it before this year,’’ said McDuff. “I had to teach them how to dribble and stuff like that.’’ The Biodynamics beat Bonner 26-22, defeated Duncan Christian School 51-29, lost to Mount Prevost 39-24 and then doubled Queen of Angels 34-17 to reach the ¿nal where they got the better of Prevost in a rematch. Ender McDuff led the scoring with 12 points, including two points on late foul shots that decided it, while Santiago Guardarrama added 10. McDuff and Guardarrama were the leading scorers in all ¿ve games. Both teams played strong defense. Kevin McDuff hopes this is the start of something big at the school. “My son’s graduating, but I will be coaching again next year,’’ he said. “We’re going to start practicing after spring break.’’

owichan Junior T-Birds will be the team to beat during the Mid-Island junior boys’ basketball tournament. Cowichan ¿nished league play with a perfect 7-0 record after defeating Chemainus 64-28 last Thursday. Corwin Trent stepped up to lead the offense with 22 points. Jeevan Sall and Callan Rakimov each had 10 while Derek New contributed seven and made some nifty assists. Exhibition play at Mount Douglas brought a 51-41 victory for Cowichan. Josh Charles accounted for more than half of the Cowichan total with 30 points. Cowichan built a 20-point lead at one stretch, 47-27,

with a 21-5 run that stretched from the last 1:18 of the second quarter to the start of the fourth quarter. Mid-Island teams go into battle beginning Friday at Mount Prevost School. Cowichan advances immediately to the second round, with Brentwood B, the last place team in the Mid-Island league at 0-7, not participating. Gulf Islands (4-3) faces Mount Prevost (3-4) at 3:15 p.m. in the ¿rst game. Brentwood A (6-1) then takes on Chemainus (1-6) at 4:45 p.m. and Shawnigan Lake School (5-2) plays Quamichan (2-5) at 6:15 p.m. The second round will be at Cowichan Secondary School Saturday. Cowichan plays the winner of the Gulf Islands-Prevost game at 10 a.m. and the winners of the other two games meet in a semi¿nal at 11:30. The ¿nal is at 4 p.m. The winner quali¿es for the island tournament at Vanier Feb. 21 to 23.

Nettleton takes a stab at youth fencing competition and wins medals George Bonner Middle School student Aden Nettleton, 11, attended a youth fencing tournament with Salle la Fleche in Port Moody Sunday. Nettleton narrowly missed the gold medal by one hit, gaining silver in the Y12 sabre event. He also collected the bronze medal in Y14 sabre and placed

fifth in the cadet category. Nettleton’s determination and sportsmanship throughout the tournament were exemplary. Island Oak High School students and Salle la Fleche fencers Christofer Lampson and Jaiwei Wu won joint bronze medals in cadet sabre.

Meanwhile, Salle la Fleche hosts its fourth-annual Valentine’s tournament Saturday at the Si’em Lelum gym. The youth event runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon, the senior foil from noon till 1:30 p.m., the senior sabre from 1 to 2:30 p.m. and the senior epee from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Events need six fencers.

Caps bounce Clippers on Ball’s overtime marker On a role: Coach Plumb looks for more consistent production from everyone Don Bodger

laying for pride is a big challenge for the Cowichan Valley Capitals but they’re making the most of it. The Caps competed hard and were rewarded with a 4-3 overtime win in the middle of three B.C. Hockey League weekend games. The Caps squandered a 2-0 lead on the Nanaimo Clippers, fell behind 3-2 but then rallied for the two points when Mitch Ball scored with 35 seconds left in the four-on-four overtime. “What a great goal,’’ said Caps’ coach Aaron Plumb. “It was real exciting for the boys.’’ Jamie Waddington, Jesse Neher and Garrett Skrbich scored the earlier goals for the Caps, who lost the night before

in Nanaimo 5-2. Dane Gibson and Skrbich scored goals in that game. The Caps hopped on the ferry early Sunday for an afternoon game in Powell River and were locked in a 2-2 tie with the Kings when Evan Richardson scored a powerplay goal with just 3:10 left in regulation. It held up as the winner, as the Caps dropped another of many one-goal decisions this season, 3-2. Plumb said it was a tough turnaround for the team to play three games in 2 1/2 days. “Powell River hadn’t played since last Tuesday,’’ he pointed out. “They were well-rested.’’ From the Caps’ standpoint, “there was a lot of good things,’’ Plumb said. “We ran out of gas at the end. “You have to put a full 60 (minutes) together and it’s just one little mistake. (Sunday) was

our best game of the year for turnovers.’’ Ball missed a breakaway with just four minutes left. “We’re getting chances so it’s real hard to be mad at the boys,’’ said Plumb. Skrbich, who’s held the hot scoring hand of late, had both goals for the Caps. “Everybody can contribute,’’ said Plumb. “It would just be nice to get them all contributing at the same time.’’ The Caps go on a three-game Interior road trip this weekend, with games at Trail Friday, Vernon Saturday and Penticton Sunday. “There’s a couple of good teams up there waiting for us,’’ said Plumb. Facing the defending Royal Bank Cup national champion Vees in the third game of the trip will be a big test.

Islanders Åying at a key time with back-to-back wins Hitting their stride: Shutting out Nanaimo a sign things are on track for Sunday’s sudden-death playoff Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

K

erry Park Islanders are just happy to be winning games at a key point in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League

schedule. A shutout by Jackson Jane was a nice bonus for him and the team. The Islanders blanked the Nanaimo Buccaneers 4-0 Saturday at Cowichan Arena on Hockey Day in the Valley, with Jane making 32 saves, for their seventh victory of the season that followed a 6-3 win over the Campbell River Storm on the road Friday night. “It was actually my ¿rst one in Junior B,’’ said Jane of the shutout. “They’ve already clinched the top seed in the north (division) so it’s big going into the playoffs. We’re beating the right teams at the right time.’’ The Islanders could wind up facing the Buccaneers in the ¿rst round if they defeat Campbell River at Victoria Sunday in a wild card game for the

¿nal playoff berth. The Islanders were on a high after Corey Peterson scored twice, including an empty-netter, in the win over Campbell River and singles came from Eric Mansueti, Braeden Cross, Alex Milligan and Brendan Gowanlock. The Buccaneers posed a more dif¿cult challenge, but the Islanders were pumped up with a larger number of fans than usual watching them play in Duncan. “Obviously, going into the game we wanted to win,’’ said Jane. “We’re playing the top team. We wanted to stay in the game, but 4-0 is a big amount to beat the top team.’’ Mansueti scored in the ¿rst period while Kyle Peterson and Corey Peterson added second-period markers and Kyle Green tallied early in the third period. Jane made some big saves to keep the Buccaneers off the scoresheet. “There was one in the second period off my pad and in the third I made a similar save,’’ he said. “Our defence played really good.

Andrew Leong

One hand on the stick is enough for Kerry Park Islanders’ Braeden Cross to maintain control, as he holds off Nanaimo’s Jake Calverley heading into the Buccaneers’ zone Saturday at Cowichan Arena in a Hockey Day in the Valley game. Cross is backed up by teammate Matt Osmond. Everybody came together that game for me, the defence and the offense, and it resulted in a big win for a change.’’ The Islanders even played without Milligan, who was summoned for duty

by the B.C. Hockey League Cowichan Valley Capitals. The Islanders have home games Thursday against Campbell River and Saturday against Oceanside at Kerry

Park Arena, as well as a Friday outing at Peninsula. But it’s the game at Bear Mountain Arena Sunday that counts the most, determining if the season continues or not.

Huge goal by Muro catapults Cowichan United to the top Stunning shot: Nanaimo still has a chance to take away Div. 2 soccer title, but it’s a longshot Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

ose Muro is an unlikely candidate to score at the best of times, never mind in the biggest game of the season. But Muro pulled the trigger from the top of the box with a laser shot that found the corner of the net in the second half and gave Cowichan United a 1-0 victory over Lakehill United Sunday at McAdam Park. The win gives United a lock on top spot in Div. 2 of the Island Soccer League, depending what Nanaimo United does in its ¿nal two games. According to Cowichan United’s Neall Rowlings, Nanaimo will need to win in Powell River and defeat Gorge — two dangerous relegation teams — to overtake Cowichan for top spot in a very tight league. “One tie and we’re champs,’’ noted Rowlings. Rowlings and Div. 1 coach Glen Martin ¿gure it’s been about 20 years since Cowichan won Div. 2. Back to Muro. Kevin Smith got the ball to him with a great pass and he hit the target. “I didn’t know it was even coming at me and I just shot for the corner,’’

Don Bodger

Legs lock, as Jordan Korven, above, battles for the ball in Div. 2 soccer thriller at McAdam Park. Right, Cowichan’s Nick Crichton just misses connecting on a diving header after a perfect cross by Steven Zorich.

Next Home Games! EXCITING DOUBLE HEADER WEEKEND Friday,, Feb 23, 7pm Friday

Muro said. “I don’t score very often — second goal of the year. It was nice it was one that actually mattered.’’ Even though ¿rst place is still uncertain, “I’m celebrating anyway,’’ said Muro. “We worked as a unit. It felt really good (Sunday).’’ Cowichan, Lakehill Reds, Lakehill United and Gordon Head Blazers all have 26 points after completing the 16-game regular season. Cowichan has the edge on the other three teams by virtue of being one better in goals for and against. Nanaimo has 21 points with the two games left and needs the full six points to reach the top. Otherwise, the title goes to Cowichan.

LMG, Fusion go scoreless For the third time in the last four games, Cowichan LMG Pringle went scoreless in Div. 1 Island Soccer League action. This time felt much better, however, tying Saanich Fusion Friday at Tyndall Park. Previous scoreless results were against Prospect Lake and Salt Spring Island, the two weakest teams in the division. “It was a very, very fast game,’’ said Cowichan coach Glen Martin.

Don Bodger

Steven Zorich of Cowichan United absorbs a little punishment in getting to the ball. “They had a really strong lineup. “It was a huge game for them, trying to defend a league title. They knew a tie was no good. Same for us, really.’’ Bays United Liquor Plus, Cowichan’s opponent for the ¿rst round of the Jackson Cup, has the inside track now on locking up ¿rst place. Shutting out the Fusion’s Patrick Nelson and Cooper Barry was a huge accomplishment for Cowichan. “Our goals against is amazing,’’ said Martin. “But we’ve got to start scoring some goals.’’

Rayce Shoemaker Rayce Shoemaker and her horse Arlequin hit it off from the beginning. Grade 12 Frances Kelsey student Shoemaker, who just turned 18 on Jan. 28, started riding lessons at the age of four. There have been many trials and tribulations until she just clicked last summer with Arlequin during three events at Thunderbird Show Park in Langley for the B.C. Hunter/ Jumper Association’s Pre-Children’s Hunter 2’6’’ division crown. “I had great coaches that got me to where I am right now,’’ said Shoemaker. Rachel Wassman of Brookhaven Equestrian in Shawnigan Lake is her primary coach, with Bill Ulmer of Kelowna also offering his expertise in the main summer competitive season. “Rayce works very hard in her lessons and is always improving,’’ noted Wassman. “Rayce has been working on her horse’s straightness as well as her upper body control over the jumps. She has a natural feel and a good eye to the jumps which helps keep her horse on a rhythm and jumping in good form.’’ “It takes hours and hours of practicing figuring out the horse,’’ said Shoemaker. “I still don’t know my horse 100 %.’’
