Duncan man bowls first 800 for Langford


obert Martin holds the high score at Langford Lanes. It’s the first time he’s held a record at a bowling alley despite downing pins since he was four years old. “It’s really nice, I’ve never had that before,” the 31-year-old said. On Feb. 4 he not only bowled a perfect game with a score of 300, he bowled an 800 series – three games in a row with a score of 800 or higher. On that Monday night he scored 821, the leading score at Langford Lanes. He was playing as a spare with the Monday Masters bowling league. With a oneweek gap due to Family Day, Martin was Charla Huber back on the lanes two weeks later to bowl Reporting a second 800-series finishing with 806 points. “That’s the first time I’ve done that back-to-back,” Martin smiled. “I think it’s more difficult to get an 800 series than it is to get a perfect game. I’ve seen people shoot a 300 game, who’ve never got an 800 series in their life.” To qualify a 300 game or 800 series for a standing record, the game must be played within a league or tournament. In sanctioned play Martin has three 300 games and three 800 series under his belt. When he was in university Martin bowled on the Saginaw Valley State University bowling team and did a fair bit of travelling to tournaments. Now his just enjoys to play recreationally. Wilson lives in Duncan and works downtown Victoria as a a car salesman. He is able to bowl at Langford Lanes on his way home from work. Aside from meeting new people and having fun Wilson said, “Bowling has taught me sportsmanship.”

The Grade 12 student said she’s finding this component of her course rewarding, as it asks each student to consider her own background and where we all come from.

“It’s just little things that make you think and realize,” Walker said. “A lot of stuff at school doesn’t make you think, because it’s all textbook, answer, textbook, answer.” Drum making also adds life skills. “There’s many parts to the discipline of teaching how to make a drum … that teaches them awesome life skills for anything they wish to do in their life,” George said. “So some of the ones who might

have had a difficult time with some other areas in their life, are able to be successful here. Success in one part of their life leads to success in many parts of their life.” The drums are made from elk hide and cedar rims, something old, and synthetic sinews, something new. “So it’s like doing old and new together, which is what we all are,” George said. kwells@goldstream

Langford fire prevention officers Chris Aubrey and Lance Caven replace an old smoke detector in a Langford home. Langford Fire Rescue provides this service and smoke detetors free of charge to all Langford residents. Charla Huber/News staff

Victoria adds smoke detectors Long established Langford program still going strong Daniel Palmer News staff

The Victoria Fire Department is offering free smoke alarms to residents as part of a provincewide push to protect every home in B.C. Last year, a study by the University of Fraser Valley and Surrey Fire Services revealed almost 70 per cent of B.C. homes involved in fires did not have functioning smoke alarms. The study also showed three quarters of 663 fire-related deaths across Canada were the result of smoke alarms that never sounded. Victoria began implementing the program at the same time as Saanich last October, while Langford has been providing free smoke alarms for more than five years. “We carry smoke alarms on every engine and in all of our duty vehicles,” said Kerry Zado, Langford deputy fire chief. “Whenever we respond to a call, we make sure to never leave the house until it has a working smoke alarm in it.” View Royal Fire Rescue has offered the program for eight years. Esquimalt and Oak Bay fire departments do not have free smoke alarm programs, but both departments said they respond to residents who request help installing the devices. Victoria purchased 200 smoke alarms and will assess demand in the coming months, said Brad Sifert, fire prevention officer, adding he received 50 phone calls on Tuesday alone. “If callers aren’t in our jurisdiction, I just find out the location and send an email to their fire department,” he said. Saanich fire installed 110 smoke alarms in nearly

100 homes since October, said Lt. Andrew Collmar. “It’s been very responsive,” he said. “Our fire chief has dedicated $1,000 to this program (this year), and we’re hoping it will be ongoing. Our ultimate goal is to have a smoke alarm in every house.” To learn more about the Langford program call at 250-478-9555. For details on the View Royal program call 250-479-7322.

The electric expressway More than 50 years after it first aired, many of The Jetsons nifty futuristic gadgets are ours. The cartoon, which debuted in 1962 and was set in 2062, featured 3-D, flat screen TVs that hung on the wall, with on-demand news, video chat, robotic vacuums, moving sidewalks and flying cars. Though we don’t see bubble-topped, personal space craft filling our skies yet, we are getting closer to futuristic with the Forget the transportation emergence of electric vehicles. Hydrogen A quick peek at the website and you’ll find Highway close to 50 locations to charge your electric car in Greater Victoria – but will you find 50 electric cars? Most electric vehicle owners have their own charging stations. These other spots, most of them installed by a business or government, are set up for convenience. The provincial government aims to have 570 charging stations set up throughout the province – at a cost of $2.7 million – this year. The scheme is reminiscent of the mid2000s Hydrogen Highway, heavily promoted by former California governator Arnold Schwarzenegger and then B.C. Liberal Premier Gordon Campbell. At the time, hydrogen fuel was lauded as the next big thing, but nary a personal vehicle fuelled by hydrogen travels our roads today. Yet the EV charge is gaining momentum, and as more municipalities buy in to the technology, the better the infrastructure will become. While consumers may still be shocked by the sticker price, electric vehicles have garnered glowing praise, and consumer demand will soon drive prices down. The convenience of charging stations in downtown parkades, at local libraries and in shopping malls is certainly an encouraging sign. With charging stations beginning to pepper the highway from Sidney to Port Hardy, it may not be long until we can fold up our cars and pop them into a briefcase as we arrive at our destination.

Before law required pasteurization of milk, raw milk was one of the ways diphtheria was transmitted. The first to discover phages was a Canadian born in Montreal: Félix d’Hérelle (1873-1949). He found a phage of dysenteric bacteria that could clear a cloudy culture without the phage being retained by a porcelain filter. In time, other phages were discovered and became models in the study of the molecular basis of life. Today we know that phages may play an important role as a genetic shuttle between different types of bacteria, which is one mechanism that explains the development of resistance of bacteria to antibiotics. Between 1896 and 1899, before his discovery of bacteriophage, d’Hérelle received a grant from the Canadian Minister of Revenue to develop a method of fermentation of maple syrup for the production of whisky. The minister was HenriGustave Joly de Lotbinière (18291908), the seventh governor of British Columbia from 1900 to 1906.

Wearing a helmet is critical for cyclists’ safety Re: Driver remains fearful of riding in traffic in the city (Letters, March 22) I devote much of my time promoting a campaign sponsored by the British Columbia Brain Injury Association (Helmet hair or Long Term Care) designed to make others, especially children, aware of the importance regarding head protection and the benefits of helmets. Therefore, the statement in this letter, “feeling sorry for cyclists obeying traffic laws and wearing helmets,” motivates me even more to promote helmet safety to kids and hopefully save a few lives. I agree there are definitely things that need changing, such as lane and barrier designs, and drivers’ attitudes toward cyclists here in B.C., but what should not change is the requirement to wear a helmet when riding a bike. It is the one fundamental piece of equipment that must remain a constant in the attempt to prevent serious brain injury. Wearing a helmet may not protect you from being hit by a car, but it will protect you from one of the most serious injuries you could unfortunately ever receive, permanent brain damage. As I always say, the choice is between ‘Helmet Hair or Long term Care.’ Happy helmet wearing. Greg Goldberg Victoria

Quality of letters questioned by reader Re: Much admired Uruguayan leader sets bad precedent (Letters, March 22) Gregory Hartnell doesn’t seem to understand the differences between sustainability, birth control and eugenics. In his letter, he encourages us to be confused about the words, too. The dictionary defines eugenics as “a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed.” While eugenics does usually imply a kind of forced population control, which sounds quite scary, examples of how it is practiced these days are quite varied. Arranged marriages, apartheid, the caste system and ethnic cleansing – all can be considered “code for eugenics.” Forced population control is very different from making abortion free, legal, safe and accessible. Why is it a surprise to anyone that “greens” are also in favour of legal, safe and accessible birth control? People are the biggest cause of climate change, so fewer (unwanted) children is one (and not the only) way to slow the environmental damage we are already causing in this world. Even if someone who is green happens to also be in favour of birth control, why is this an

issue? Making a statement like “green is code for eugenics” makes Mr. Hartnell sound like another right-wing, anti-abortion, anti-environmentalist from the U.S. Can’t you be a little more selective with your letters? Alan Johnson Victoria

Reference to Agenda 21 like 9/11 conspiracy

B.C. Ferries top-heavy in management

Re: Much-admired Uruguayan leader sets bad precedent (Letters, March 22) For the third time in as many months, your newspaper has printed letters warning readers about the supposedly ominous Agenda 21, a voluntary, nonbinding environmental plan from the United Nations. Is your editorial section so desperate for content that it includes arguments that are the intellectual equivalent (using the term generously) of a 9/11 conspiracy theory? For context, in the recent Victoria federal byelection, Christian Heritage Party candidate Philip Ney included similar warnings about Agenda 21 in his platform, and received 0.49 per cent of the vote. And the 192 people who chose this last-place candidate likely include more than just those who put down their cheese-curl snacks and got away from their basement

There is a lot of talk about cutting sailings and raising fares by B.C. Ferries, but nothing about looking at cutting costs at their head office. There are too many vicepresidents and a huge public relations department that is totally unnecessary. Tourists can get all the info they need from the website or a travel agent. Frankly the highly trained and professional union employees could run the ferries without the interference of people at head office, many of whom have no experience in the field and

Re: Urban speed limit reduction Before proceeding with changing the posted speed limits from 50 to 40 km/h, an inquiry into the cost of changing all the signage should be considered.

MS Walk walk for cash, awareness

Jennifer Blyth Black Press

More than 600 people are expected to walk, run and roll their way along the Oak Bay waterfront April 14 as they help raise money and awareness for the fight against multiple sclerosis. Some at this year’s Scotiabank MS Walk will be living with MS themselves; others will be participating in support or memory of a loved one. “Whether it’s for themselves, their mother, brother or friend, participants have many personal reasons to join the annual MS Walk and to help find a cure to MS, a complex, unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system,” said Ashley Hodgins, Manager of Development, South & Central Vancouver Island Chapter, whose father also has MS. “The energy at Willows Beach Park is exciting as people living with MS every day feel the support of their friends, family and community in the effort to find a cure.” MS Walk participants can choose a three-, six- or nine-kilometre route, all wheelchair/scooter accessible, and dogs on leashes are welcome. While fundraising is one of the primary goals of the annual event, it’s also an essential tool to help

raise awareness of the disease and its impact on individuals and families. Most often diagnosed in young adults from 15 to 40 years old, MS is a chronic, often disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord that can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Canadians have one of the world’s highest rates of multiple sclerosis, also the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada. Every day, three people in Canada are diagnosed with the disease. The MS Society, through events like the annual Scotiabank MS Walk, May’s MS Awareness Month and July’s MS Bike Tour – Cowichan Valley Grape Escape, raises money to fund research to find a cure. Proceeds also support local programs for people affected by MS to help them maintain a higher quality of life and deal with the issues related to the disease. Initiatives include information and referral, supportive counselling, self-help and support groups, financial assistance and recreation and social programs.

Chess players aged 6 to 80 will vie for top spot during the seventh annual Grand Pacific Open tournament this weekend. Numerous out-of-town players will join the local contingent to bring the total number of competitors beyond the 100 mark. Surrey’s Tanraj Sohal, 15, winner of the B.C.

Local jazz pianist has the world on a string Victoria jazz stalwart celebrates 90th birthday Kyle Wells News staff

From Jerry Bryant’s perspective the world is flat, and that’s just the way he’d like it to stay. The jazz pianist, vocalist and former educator, who turns 90 Monday, isn’t interested in any major highs or lows. He attributes his longevity to taking life on an even keel, appreciating all it has given him and constantly striving to learn. “It affects people differently,” said Bryant on the topic of age. “I guess my gift, the phenomenon, the miracle, seems to be my ability to be on new ground every day.” In celebration of this milestone, the Island Big Band, with which Bryant has played for about seven years, is getting together for a special birthday performance April 1 at Hermann’s Jazz Club.

Kyle Wells/News staff

Jazz pianist and singer Jerry Bryant turns 90 years old on Monday, April 1, and he will be celebrating the occasion with the Island Big Band at a special performance at Hermann’s Jazz Club. Bryant started playing with the band after his wife, Cecilia, died in 2005 and he found himself in need of a purpose. He retired from teaching in 1983, after a long career as an educator in both the United States and Canada. His long list of achievements includes starting the jazz pro-

gram at Esquimalt High school. “This band turned out to be a kind of spiritual refuge and it’s growing into a beautiful thing,” Bryant said. “It’s spiritual nourishment, really. It’s everything I need to be spiritually healthy.” Music has been a part of Bryant’s life since the beginning.

Born on April Fool’s day in 1923 in Kansas City, his uncle was famous blues singer and rock and roll pioneer Big Joe Turner. Bryant grew up around musicians such as Oscar Peterson and Bill Haley, soaking in the music surrounding him. Even after a long lifetime of playing and teaching music, Bryant said he is still constantly learning. One of the reasons he joined the Big Band was to improve his sight reading, a skill in which, he confesses, he has never excelled. This desire to learn and grow is what Bryant believes keeps him feeling young. “I just want to stay and grow and learn how to read these charts and keep up with these guys. This is what’s making me look and appear to be cute and young. It’s a chance to try and keep up with these people.” Band trumpeter Bryn Badel said it’s an honour to have Bryant in the band. “As the bearer of the torch he’s handing it off to us,” Badel said. “It’s really important to pay tribute to that.

“The jazz tradition is really an oral tradition. … A lot of it’s handed down. The only way to learn it is to be in the moment, to live with guys like that day in and day out – and to learn from them.” Through all the music he has heard, a few pieces and musicians stand out for Bryant. He admires Count Basie as a musician, for his style of understatement. I’ve Got the World on a String by Harold Arlen, made famous by Cab Calloway and Frank Sinatra, is a favourite tune. Perhaps most appropriate is another favourite of Bryant’s, Duke Ellington’s I Guess I’m Just a Lucky So-and-So. “What I believe and what I love, it doesn’t have to be proclaimed from the highest tree loudly,” Bryant said. “To be privileged is to stay and support and be in the background. … I’m just lucky to be here.” Tickets for Jerry Bryant’s 90th Birthday Party are $10 and are available at Hermann’s Jazz Club (753 View St.). Show is at 8 p.m. • A13

Stars shine in Love Letters Victoria’s Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre is in the midst of a run of A.R. Gurney’s Pulitzer Prize nominated drama Love Letters. The show, which runs until March 30 at the McPherson Playhouse, stars Canadian Hollywood star Bruce Greenwood alongside Canadian television icon Janet Wright. Greenwood is known for his appearances in Star Trek, Double Jeopardy, The Core, Thirteen Days, Capote, Eight Below, Firehouse Dog and, most recently, alongside Denzel Washington in Flight. He has also played prominent roles in a trio of award winning Canadian films by Atom Egoyan: Exotica, The Sweet Hereafter and Ararat. He is joined by Wright – star of stage, television and film – who has appeared at many of the major theatres across Canada including Vancouver’s Arts Club Theatre and Ontario’s Stratford Festival. Two seasons ago she starred as Ma Joad in the Stratford Festival’s critically acclaimed production of The Grapes of Wrath. Though she is best known for her successful portrayal of Emma Leroy on CTV’s Corner Gas (2004-09), Wright has also appeared in many prominent films including Robert Altman’s McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Bordertown Café, and A Perfect Storm with

George Clooney. “I am delighted to be working again with two of my favourite actors,” said Brian Richmond, Blue Bridge artistic director and director of Love Letters. Having directed both Greenwood and Wright in a crosscountry tour of the Canadian Musical Cruel Tears in the mid-1970s, Richmond is an ardent fan of both Greenwood’s and Wright’s talents. “It is wonderful to have watched their work over the decades and to have an opportunity to work with them on this superb piece of writing,” he said. “Victoria audiences are in for a thrill,” Richmond added. “This is a rare opportunity to see two of our country’s finest actors rejoin their creative energies at the height of their careers.” Love Letters is at the McPherson Playhouse until March 30. Tickets can be purchased individually, or at a special price by buying a Blue Pass for two plays or more to the company’s upcoming season. For Blue Passes call the Blue Bridge office at 250-385-4462.

Ready to rock Men’s World Curling starts Saturday Travis Paterson News staff

They’re young, they’re fit, and they’re not worried about the field they’re up against. The Brad Jacobs rink from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., make up Team Canada at the Ford World Men’s Curling Championship beginning tomorrow (March 30) at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. It’s their first time at the World Championships. They’re one of the youngest Canadian teams ever and they’re not pretending they’re a favourite just because they’re wearing the maple leaf. Canada’s first game of the roundrobin schedule is against China’s Rui Liu at 2 p.m. Saturday. “To be honest, we haven’t scouted the other teams. We feel like our biggest opponents are ourselves, we’re trying to play at 100 per cent. We’ve always looked at it that way, and we’ll continue to look at it that way for the rest of our lives.”


Jacobs, 27, is the youngest Canadian to skip at the world championship since Kevin Martin was 24 in 1991. Vice-skip and third Ryan Fry is 34, second E.J. Harnden is 29 and lead Ryan Harnden is 26. Even their alternate Matt Dumontelle is only 28. “We’re more concerned with what the rocks are going to be doing. Really, the opponents are out there to help you to read the ice and help you make your shots.” Three of the foursome have represented Northern Ontario at the Brier the past five years but it wasn’t until they added Fry at third that they managed to win the 2013 Brier in Edmonton earlier this month. “This is our first time wearing the maple leaf on the back. Once we put the clothes on for practice, we’ll feel like what it is to be Team Canada and what it stands for.” Canada faces a fierce field, with teams such as Scotland’s two-time world champion David Murdoch, which lost to Canada’s Randy Ferbey rink in a riveting 2005 Men’s World final, also played in Victoria; Sweden’s Niklas Edin, which won the Victoria Curling Classic in an equally tough field last week; and

busy,” Jacobs said. “After the brier it was back to work, practice, gym, supper and then bed.” Results from this week’s Worlds will help define the field for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The top seven finishers from this year’s and last year’s World Championships will go to Sochi, as well as two more teams from an upcoming qualifying event in December.

Phantom magic on ice Big season from little program Travis Paterson News staff

The Victoria Phantoms senior A women’s hockey team recently stamped a solid ending to a most precarious season in the South Coast Female Amateur Hockey League. Despite taking a team of just 11 players, with two forward lines, the Phantoms finished third at provincials, tying the eventual champions Kamloops Vibe in Game 1 but losing to the Richmond Devils 2-1 in the semifinal. (Victoria won 11-4 over Simon Fraser University in Game 2.) In the fallout, coach John LouPoy is hoping the team can use the upcoming offseason as a time to recruit a few extra bodies for next year. “Going to provincials with two lines is, nobody does that, it’s insane, you can’t expect to win any games with two lines,” LouPoy said. “Obviously it would be great to have as many women out as possible to tryouts in September. Senior A is very high level hockey and the Island is a hotbed of talent for this level of playing, but getting the players to commit is


Senior A is meant to be competitive and the Phantoms want to win. Not just any player can make the cut, even if it doesn’t make Lou-Poy popular with every player who wants to be a Phantom. Then again, no coach ever is. Nor is Lou-Poy running some sort of dictatorship. After a few years with Lou-Poy at the helm, the team made the decision to self coach themselves. It lasted one year, and they asked him back. Since Lou-Poy became involved in 2008-09 the Phantoms have been to provincials three times and won it twice, in 2009 and 2010. The game plan with two lines is simple. “We have to play very carefully, and we can only get away playing the way we do because we have very smart players,” Lou-Poy said. “We try to slow the game down. We try to create lots of faceoffs. Anything to get a break. It was a tough go for us this season and it’s remarkable that we did this well.”

Sharks are VHL champs

Plus, senior A women’s hockey (ages 19 and up) tends to fly under the radar in B.C., and it’s no differ-

ent in Greater Victoria. Because the number of senior A caliber players is limited in here, Lou-Poy, who has coached the team four of the past five seasons, is saddled with some tough decisions. (Also threatening the team’s future is

the recent disbandment of the South Island Breakers midget AAA team, for girls aged 16 to 18. There has often been as many as eight or nine Breakers graduates playing on the Phantoms in a year, with five this season.)

The Sharks are Victoria Hockey League champions for 2012-13. Chad Linger, Tyler Tachnyk and Ben King scored to lift the Sharks to a 3-1 win over the Lions on Tuesday night in Game 4 of the best-of-five VHL playoff final. Goalie Dave Brumby was named the Sharks’ playoff MVP. Lions’ forward Clayton Lainsbury, a Victoria Salsa alumnus from 2003-04, led all playoff scorers with seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points in 12 games.

Oak Bay hosts star-studded ‘Miracle’ gala Kyle Wells News staff

The lights are ready to dim and tables set as the Oak Bay Beach Hotel prepares to host its first David Foster Miracle Concert. The hotel hoped to hold the gala last year, but the theatre wasn’t ready in time. With the hotel up and running since December, co-owner Kevin Walker is eager to host the celebrity studded event, which will feature the foundation’s namesake in a starring role. “We’re very excited about it. (Foster) will not only be sharing his music, he’ll be sharing his story with us,” Walker said. “People will go away with a sense that

David Foster they’ve made a friend in David Foster.” The David Foster Foundation, which started in 1986, raises

money to support families of children receiving organ transplants. The foundation’s annual gala event is one of its primary fundraising events. Another source of funding came this year in the form of volunteer work by South Island Telus Community Ambassadors, a group of current and retired employees that raise money in the community for a number of causes. To help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the foundation last year, the ambassadors held a garage sale, a barbecue and a slow-pitch softball tournament to raise money for the cause. The group made a pledge to raise $10,000 to sponsor a family. They exceeded expectations



Foundation keeps families in mind

A group in the restaurant recently called Kevin Walker over and told him their daughter had a heart transplant 13 years ago, at three weeks old. The family was helped by the David Foster Foundation, which paid their mortgage and rented an apartment in Toronto so they could be with their child. “It was a beautiful moment for me,” Walker said, adding they host the event so “Canadian families can have the support that their really cherish, deserve and value when they’re facing their moment of crisis.”

The province moved its decades-long treaty settlement effort another step forward Tuesday, turning over key Crown properties to two aboriginal communities on southwestern Vancouver Island. Incremental treaty agreements transfer 596 hectares of land southeast of Port Renfrew to the Pacheedaht First Nation, and another 420 hectares newer Nitinat Lake to the Ditidaht First Nation. Some land can only be transferred when the two communities settle their territorial claims. Both chiefs praised the government for offering land early, the latest of a series of efforts to speed treaty talks and generate economic activity. “They are transferring these lands as an act of good faith,” said Pacheedaht First Nation Chief Marvin McClurg. “It also shows our people that the past 16 years of negotiations has not been for nothing.” Ditidaht First Nation Chief Jack Thompson said it has been a long and frustrating effort. “Truly this is a beginning of getting some of our land back for the Ditidaht people,” Thompson said. McClurg described the Pacheedaht land as some of the most beautiful and significant in the traditional territory. After discussions with the community and experts, it will likely be used for a cultural centre to welcome tourists, he said. Aboriginal Relations Minister Ida Chong said the first of the Ditidaht lands would be transferred after Tuesday's agreement. The second parcel will be turned over after agreement in principle is reached, and the third will take effect with a final agreement.
