Deborah Beck, recreation coordinator for the city, gets an early start on controlling invasive plant species at Beban Park Tuesday. Scotch broom, giant hogweed, and Himalayan blackberries are just some of the invasive species being targeted in May during Invasive Plant Awareness Month. The city has organized plant removal sessions and drop zones throughout the month to encourage public participation.

City leading attack on invasive plants By ToBy goRMan THe NewS BULLeTIN

There are aliens living among us, and the city’s parks and recreation department has a plan to get rid of them. English ivy, daphne, Himalayan blackberry, giant hogweed and the ubiquitous Scotch broom are just a few of the invasive species being targeted during May, designated as Invasive Plant Awareness Month in Nanaimo. To help reduce the spread of these invaders, no matter how

pretty they appear, city staff have developed a number of invasive species removal events throughout the month to encourage residents to participate in removing the plants from roadsides, parks and other areas where they are choking out native vegetation. “The biggest thing is these plants are affecting the natural ecosystem by dominating the plants that would naturally grow here,” said Deborah Beck, recreation coordinator for the city. “The Himalayan blackberry takes over from

native blackberries, which generate berries in the spring and allow birds to feed on them. “Himalayans produce fruit in the fall, which is great for us but not so much for the birds that really need it in the spring.” According to the city’s invasive plant reduction strategy, the uncontrolled spread of these invaders is becoming a major concern for ecologists, naturalists, residents and land managers across B.C. u See ‘INVASIVE’ /4

It’s business as usual at the Nanaimo Boast Basin despite the fact the Pacific Northwest Marina Group has pulled out of a proposed 30-year lease and $9-million investment in the marina. A memorandum of agreement signed between the Nanaimo Port Authority and Pacific Northwest in May 2012 expired April 1, and the marina group will not be taking on the revitalization and long-term lease of the Nanaimo marina. Bernie Dumas, CEO of the Nanaimo Port Authority, said the economic climate and changes to federal environmental impact reviews played a part in the demise of the deal. “Their position was the change in the overall economy – in the sense that there were other investment opportunities available to them that would have a quicker return on their investment – and the length of time needed to do the environmental review was a contributing factor in their decision not to renew the MOA,” he said. “Without the MOA, the port is unable to go forward.” Changes to the rules surround-

ing the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency reviews made the port authority responsible for looking at what impact the boat basin project would have on the environment. Dumas said some of the delays on the environmental review were due to the port’s sensitivity to concerns of residents and marina stakeholders. “We were working through them and trying to find solutions which caused the need for more time,” he said. “The Pacific Northwest Marina Group wasn’t really interested in wasting any more time and we couldn’t get them to extend the MOA.” The proposal created a storm of controversy with local residents and marina stakeholders, such as commercial fishermen and Protection Island residents, but Dumas couldn’t say if that played a part in the failure of the deal or if future investors might be scared off from investing in Nanaimo. “That’s a question to be directed to Pacific Northwest,” he said. “I can say we are one big community and there’s been some disappointments collectively here. As a port authority, we are just going forward.” Dumas says the port authority still believes the redevelopment would have had a good result for the basin and Nanaimo, but the situation now is simply status quo. u See ‘BUSINESS’ /5

Wild food helps celebrate Earth Day

I

aNNUal EVENt draws close to 1,000 people.

By Jenn McGarriGle The News BulleTiN

Trying out some stinging nettle recipes and listening to live music in Bowen Park are two ways Nanaimo residents can celebrate Earth Day Sunday (April 21). The Nanaimo Area Land Trust, in partnership with the City of Nanaimo, hosts its fourth annual Wild Foods Festival from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Bowen Park Complex. People can sample dishes prepared by local chefs featuring an array of wild, local ingredients from halibut and wild greens to berries and stinging nettles. Gail Adrienne, NALT executive director, said the idea behind the event is to introduce people to native foods – many people don’t realize how many edible native plants

are in the area – and to encourage people to grow these plants in their backyards. “It’s morphed into a celebration of Earth Day as well,” she said. “It’s part of the concept of food security and local food. One of our best sources of local food ... is native foods.” Many of these foods are also high in vitamins and minerals and the recipes that local chefs come up with – this year 12 chefs will be cooking up a storm for the event – are always delicious, Adrienne added. “I’ve had some absolutely gorgeous gourmet samplings,” she said. “There’s always lineups for the food samples.” Admission is $2 with children 10 and under free and samples will cost $1-2. On top of the food samplings, there will be a range of local vendors on hand selling crafts, breads, sea salt, produce, sausages and other items, and several community

groups will have information tables set up. Indoors, the event features three presentations – chef Francois DeJong from Nanaimo Foodshare will give a food preparation demonstration using stinging nettles and Oregon grape berries; Bill Jones of Deerholme Farm has a demonstration featuring wild local mushrooms; and Andy MacKinnon, co-author of Plants of Coastal B.C., will talk about local wild edible plants. Outdoors, people can participate in guided walks or try out lawn bowling and disc golf. There will also be a Wild Kidzone featuring crafts such as potting up a wild strawberry plant and tak-

ing it home. Adrienne said last year, the event attracted about 1,000 people. “The word’s gotten out how great it is,” she said. The Sierra Club of Nanaimo is also hosting an Earth Day celebration in Bowen Park. From 3:30-7 p.m., people can go for a picnic in the park at the lower picnic shelter off Wall Street. The event features a bake sale, local musicians and dancers, games and there will even be a piñata to smash. “It’s just a way for people to get together and make connections around being aware of and caring for the planet,” said organizer Carla Stein. “We’re inviting everyone in the community to come and bring a picnic lunch.” People are asked to bring a picnic basket, reusable cup and a comfortable blanket or chair.

lawyers, told prosecutors he found Christmas unbearable in his sister’s absence. “I acknowledge the Bairds’ deep pain and their loss,” said Maisonville. A second-degree murder conviction comes with a mandatory life sentence and the issue at hand Monday was the parole ineligibility period, which Maisonville set at 10 years – the period recommended by both Crown and defence lawyers – taking into account Robinson’s age and his guilty plea. Crown counsel Frank Dubenski said outside the courtroom that he felt Maisonville’s ruling was thoughtful and considerate, as she spent a great deal of time recognizing the pain the victim’s family continues to experience. He said the case impacted people beyond the family, from Nob Hill-area residents who

heard Baird screaming, to first responders, to those in the justice system who have dealt with the file. “It’s extraordinarily sad that we have a young mother in this community who is dead and a young man who is going to jail for the rest of his life,” said Dubenski. “It seems senseless to any of us that have worked in the justice system to see this kind of crime, knowing that there were interventions that may have prevented people from making certain lifestyle decisions that led to it and it’s just an incredibly sad story.” Peter Hertzberg, Robinson’s lawyer, said his client chose to plead guilty after hearing some personal circumstances about the Baird family. “He couldn’t bear any longer the pain he had caused to the family,” he said.

A Nanaimo man was given a life sentence with the minimum parole ineligibility period of 10 years for the murder of a young mother in a downtown park almost two years ago. Christopher James Robinson, 26, who entered a surprise guilty plea to the second-degree murder charge just days before his trial was scheduled to begin in late February, learned his fate from B.C. Supreme Court Judge Miriam Maisonville Monday. Emergency crews found 22-year-old Brittany Elsie Baird dead on Milford Crescent near Selby Street May 25, 2011, at about 11 p.m. Police charged Robinson and Marcus Brandon Parry with second-degree murder, but the week before the trial was scheduled to begin, Robinson

entered a guilty plea and the Crown stayed charges against Parry. During Crown and defense submissions at the sentencing hearing last month, the court heard that Baird apparently turned to street-level drug trafficking to get the money needed to regain custody of her oneyear-old son. The night of the murder, Robinson arranged to meet Baird at Nob Hill Park to buy some cocaine and during a confrontation over the drugs, Robinson stabbed Baird eight times in the chest, neck and head. Afterwards, Robinson fled the scene with Parry and a female friend, both of whom said they did not witness the confrontation but could hear a woman screaming. Emotions ran high in the courtroom Monday as Maisonville read out her decision,

u From /1 These plants often thrive because of a lack of natural predators and easily out-compete native plants. If allowed to establish, they can diminish local biodiversity, reduce habitat and food sources for other species, and, in the case of giant hogweed and even daphne, can cause personal injury to people or pets from the toxins they emit. “We may not be able to eliminate the plant, especially for a species like scotch broom, but we can at least control it,” said Beck. People can also take a proactive approach to the spread of invasive species by being careful about how they dispose of their nursery or potted plants. The city has partnered with local businesses and organizations, including Woodgrove Centre, Nanaimo North Town Centre, Nanaimo Fire Rescue and Nanaimo Recycling Exchange, to provide drop zones drop zoNES and for piles of pulled information on invasive plants. Harmac plant species can be mill is also taking found at www.nanaimo. part by receiving ca/goto/invasives, or piles of invasive by calling 250-756plants from the 5200. city it will use in its products. On May 14-15, Beck is working with environment clubs in local high schools to use scheduled professional development days to organize invasive species removal parties in an effort to educate students on the issue. Neighbours that want to get together and register their own work parties are invited to do so, and programs such as the city’s Volunteers in Parks will also be employed for park ambassadors to remove invasive plants from city property. Drop zones (for invasive plants only) and the dates they are available, as well as scheduled work parties, can be found at www. nanaimo.ca/goto/invasives, and registration for neighbourhood work parties can be completed by calling 250-756-5200.

MS walk raises money, awareness

ANNUAL EVENT set for April 28 at Maffeo sutton Park. By ToBy Gorman The News BulleTiN

More than 100 people are expected to walk, run or roll in support of the MS Society’s largest fundraiser in the central Island later this month. On April 28, the Scotiabank MS Walk will be held at Maffeo Sutton Park to raise money and awareness for the fight against multiple sclerosis. Race organizers say partici-

pants have been fundraising and collecting pledges for several months. “Whether it’s for themselves, their mother, brother or friend, members of our community are coming together at the annual MS Walk to help find a cure to MS,” said Ashley Hodgins, manager of development for the south and central Vancouver Island chapter of the society. Proceeds from the event support local programs for people affected by MS that can enhance their 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. Multiple sclerosis is a complex, unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system affecting between 55,000 and 75,000 people in Canada. Participants can choose a three-, six- or nine-kilometre route, all of which are wheelchair or scooter accessible, and dogs on leashes are welcome.

SIX LOCALS finish before terror attack.

BY GREG SAKAKI The News BulleTiN

Marathon runners will return to Nanaimo safe and sound, if shaken, by the bomb blasts in Boston. Four athletes from Nanaimo and two from Nanoose Bay finished the Boston Marathon on Monday before two bombs near the finish line killed three people and injured at least 175 others. Scott Jones, Russell Henry, Rachel Kimler and Carene Booth of Nanaimo and Gene Wray and Terry Riggins of Nanoose all ran the race that day and all completed the 42.2 kilometres before the terror attack. Wray, 60, was in cool-down mode, walking away from the finish-line area to retrieve street clothes.

“And the explosion went off,” he said. “I knew it wasn’t normal. And then right behind, another one, and it shook everything … I wasn’t right at the blast. Close enough for me. Close enough where I didn’t want to be any closer.” There was a moment of uncertainty, and then, said Wray, absolute chaos. People shouted warnings about car bombs at first, not knowing. “They were telling us to run. There was people pushing people down because it was just a wave. You could see the wave of fear coming towards me.” He ducked behind a school bus, unsure if more bombs would go off. Quickly, police cars, unmarked cars, SWAT teams and ambulances were swarming the area. Panic, then, set in, Wray said, because he was beginning to realize that he wasn’t going to be able to find his wife at the finish line. For two

hours he agonized, finally returning to the hotel. She wasn’t in the room. “As I’m walking towards the elevator, there she is with a couple of people, crying,” he said. “We were all safe, and all of our friends were all safe, and all of the Nanaimo people that we know are all fine.” Relatively fine. That day, and the day after, Wray had to see strangers sobbing in such a way that he knew their hurt was more serious than his own. He, his wife, his friends Jones and Kimler and their partners went out to dinner the day after

The runners, legs sore, tried to joke around as they might after any other race. “We were making fun of each other, how the curbs are too high to get our feet up,” Wray said. “But it all kept going back to the finish line, all the conversations.” It’s been an uneasy feeling, he said, and he can’t help but wonder what went so wrong. “I don’t understand. We were out running,” Wray said. “Like I didn’t understand the school [shooting], I don’t understand this any more.” Wray’s first-ever visit to Boston had included a Red Sox game, and it had been a dream trip, for awhile. He brings back a souvenir Boston Marathon jacket, a status symbol for runners. “That jacket is going to mean something different forever, to everybody,” he said. “Boston 2013. You were there.

Couple takes aim at rabbit population

I

fiNdiNg HumANE ways to deal with animals a priority. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

One could say Ashley Henderson and Josh Ter Veer are passionate about their pastime. Anyone who has walked through parks, golf courses and undeveloped properties in Nanaimo has likely noticed there is no shortages of rabbits running loose around the city. For the past two years, their love for rabbits has driven them to spend hours at a time catching the animals. They keep some as pets, find new foster homes for others or relocate them out of town away from human habitation where they can cause damage or risk being injured by vehicles. “I don’t think bunnies are meant for the city,” Ter Veer said. “You see them get hit by cars and they chew up people’s gardens, so we try to get them out of here.” Rabbits are not native to Vancouver Island and many of the rodents roaming free started out as pets that either escaped or were turned loose to fend for themselves when their owners no longer wanted them. “About three years ago I caught one and thought it’s pretty easy to catch,” Henderson said. Since the rabbits they

are after are accustomed to humans they are fairly easy to catch, but it takes patience and time. May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park, the Cavalotti Lodge grounds, Beban Park and Country Club Centre are good catching grounds. “We never used to use nets,” Ter Veer said. “We used to just use our bare hands. We’d chase them around for sometimes an hour or two hours before we’d catch them. It’s almost like a sport.” These days the couple uses fishing nets to bag their quarry. One reason they’re fairly easy to catch is because these formerly domestic rabbits are pretty docile. Ter Veer said live traps rarely work because food for rabbits is virtually everywhere, so putting a carrot inside a trap as bait really offers little incentive for the animal to go after it. Of the 23 rabbits the couple have penned in their back yard, eight were born wild, but even those are completely comfortable being picked up and petted. The couple, which estimates they have caught 250 rabbits so far, would like to land contracts with the city or business owners to remove problem rabbits from their properties and offer a humane alternative to killing the animals. They’d like to be hired to clear out Beban Golf Course. “We look over the fence and say, like, ‘Oh, there’s so many bunnies to catch over

A man who tried to rob a jogger in Nanaimo on the weekend got a a quick and painful lesson in what happens when you punch someone who has earned his black belt in karate. The robbery attempt happened Sunday at about 9:30 a.m. when a 17-year-old

male jogger running through Harewood stopped to check his cellphone messages. “This guy pops out of the bushes and tries to rob him of his phone,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. The suspect demanded the teen hand over his phone and then backed up his demand by punching his intended victim in the face.

Mountain bike club opens official trail The Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club celebrates the opening of the area’s first provincially approved mountain bike trail on Sunday (April 21). The trail, called Fine China, is built on Crown land in the Doumont trail network area with permission of the woodlot manager and the provincial government. It is a downhill trail designed specifically for mountain bikes. On Sunday, begining at 1 p.m., the club opens the first section of the trail, a 900metre, one-way downhill track featuring more than three dozen berms, seven table tops and numerous rollers.

It’s hard to ride this trail and not have a big smile at the bottom.” Fine China is managed by the Nanaimo Mountain Bike Club with liability insurance obtained through the International Mountain Bicycling Association of Canada, which stipulates the trail must be built and maintained according to certain safety and environmental standards. The second phase of construction will extend the trail a further 300 metres and long-term plans are to submit an application to extend the trail even further. The club estimates that the trail will be used by thousands of riders annually.

there,” Ter Veer said. Country Club Centre hired the couple to catch rabbits on the shopping centre’s property several months ago. They caught most of the rabbits, but a few that proved too difficult to net were left behind. Dave Mills, centre manager, said in an e-mail the effort was still a big help in keeping the population under control. “We also take rabbits that people can’t care for anymore,” Henderson said. The couple’s activities and

methods do draw attention, especially at night when it’s easier to catch the animals because they tend to freeze when a flashlight is shined in their eyes. “We had this big net we were catching them with and we were walking down the street at three in the morning,” Henderson said. “This cop pulled up and said, ‘I have to ask….’” For more information, please call Henderson or Ter Veer at 250-739-8980. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

The action prompted the jogger, who is also trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, to respond with a flurry of four accurately placed punches to the robber’s face, finishing off with a hip throw that body slammed the culprit hard to the ground. The suspect – described as a Caucasian male, 25 to 30 years old, 6’2” with a stocky build, clean shaven

and wearing a black hoodie, blue jeans and white running shoes – was last seen hobbling off along Seventh Street toward Howard Avenue.

EDITORIAL

Investor’s exit changes little The Pacific Northwest Marina Group’s about face on a proposed 30-year lease of the Nanaimo Boat Basin caught most people by surprise. While the company is remaining tightlipped over its decision – Bernie Dumas, Nanaimo Port Authority CEO, said Pacific Northwest’s reasons included the timeline for an environmental review and other opportunities providing quicker return on its investment – one has to wonder how much the waves of protest by Nanaimo residents and marina stakeholders played a part. The small, but vocal, opposition was dead set against what it called the privatization of the harbour – shutting out resident boaters and local fishermen in favour of multi-million dollar yachts from the U.S. Whether that would have ever been the case won’t be known now, as the port authority simply plans to carry on managing the marina as it has in the past. Everything remains status quo. And while that might seem like a victory for those who want the boat basin to remain just the way it is, it’s far from a win-win situation. It raises the question, what’s next? One only has to take a walk along the aging docks to see the boat basin in its current form cannot remain the same. It requires an infusion of cash – and a significant amount – to bring it up to today’s standards. Already D dock has been closed to all use because of safety concerns. What’s next? A, B, C – pick your letter – dock closed as well? The boat basin needs to be shipshape and someone has to pay for it. If the people don’t want out-of-town investors with deep pockets willing to invest $9 million into the aging infrastructure, that’s fine. That leaves the taxpayer footing the bill. The people have protested, criticized and apparently won. Now its time to step up and pay to keep the shine on our jewel of a harbour.

This sounds to me like political positioning rather than economic analysis. An anti-Site C independent candidate has significant support in Peace River North, creating a three-way struggle for a key B.C. Conservative target. The B.C. Conservative platform also totals up the billions in longterm electricity contracts with private power producers and suggests the price for this clean energy is set too high. Another echo of the NDP’s vague position. So if the B.C. Conservatives are gung-ho on oil and gas and think the carbon tax is a mistake, do they think there should be any effort to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions? Cummins sidestepped that question, preferring to talk about conventional air pollution, whether it’s in the Fraser Valley or as a byproduct of a northern industrial boom. As a long-time former Reform and Conservative MP, Cummins is acutely aware that the urban media will leap with extra vigour on any perceived gaffe of the right wing. Should a Conservative let slip that he’s skeptical about global warming, or worse, express a rustic view on social issues, all hell would break loose. The B.C. Conservatives have started with the most detailed, costed platform of any party. Don’t count them out. u Tom Fletcher is a legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Columnist shuns other theories

Nanaimo exists first and foremost for its residents. City council and other public bodies should always keep this in mind.

Re: Company pulls out of Nanaimo marina deal, April 16. First the hotel deal at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre collapses, now the marina. No doubt some people, like our mayor, will blame the negative attitude of many residents. Perhaps he’ll eventually get the message that we’re fed up with deals that benefit only businesses and developers. The people who make the financial wheels of the city turn are the residents. We’re the ones who keep businesses going, not tourists or conference delegates. We’re the ones who pay taxes and spend thousands of dollars each year on food, clothing, entertainment, transportation, etc. Conference centres, hotels, cruise ship facilities and private marinas will never generate more than a tiny fraction of what we spend locally.

Re: Industrial food companies put profits before nourishment, Food Matters, April 13. Marjorie Stewart has once again perpetuated myths about genetically modified crops. The first myth is Indian suicides are caused by GM crops. But, if one looks at the Indian government stats a completely different picture emerges. Approximately 70 per cent of the population of India is rural, but in 2006, the rural areas had only 13 per cent of the suicides. The urban population showed 87 per cent of the suicides.

adopted GM cotton (90 per cent of all cotton grown) and the rural suicide rate has dropped to 10 per cent. The state with the highest area under cotton production has one of the lowest suicide rates in the entire country. If the “no yield increases” claim is true, then why is 95 per cent of soy farmers, 70 per cent of corn farmers, 75 per cent of canola farmers and 95 per cent of sugar beet farmers all choosing to grow GM crops? Surely these farmers would recognize the yield increases as hype if that was all they were. There are a great many myths on the web about GM crops and food, and unfortunately, Stewart believes most of them.

Any kind of bridge makes zero sense To the Editor,

system might necessitate bridge, Letters, April 13. Can we please get real on this? A bridge would be far too expensive, would have to take into consideration deep water, possibilities of earthquakes and would need to have a span high enough above the water to allow ships to pass beneath. Newer generation cruise ships already omit Vancouver as a port of call because of height restrictions imposed by the Lions Gate Bridge. A floating link makes even less sense. Bad weather, seasickness in your car, fog on Georgia Strait, floating logs? And what happens every time marine traffic needs to get through? Public transit, whether it be city buses, commuter trains or ferries will never pay for itself from fares. Deal with it.

Re: Muzzling scientists’ work an assault on a country’s democracy, Science Matters, April 11. I disagree with the David Suzuki Foundation’s methods of muzzling any scientist who opposes or debates its own global warming theories. There is a large group of qualified climate scientists on the planet that rally behind alternative climate theories. It is now politically advantageous to promote or disqualify the international trade of goods and fossil fuels by manipulating the reasoning behind global change. It is now politically popular to side with a group of scientists that

The Science Matters column should have more than one voice. Or it should have content that refers to science and not aimed to leverage one political party. Using a column with intent to advertise is called spam. When did opposing a government become scientific? There is only one thing that remains constant on planet Earth and that is ‘change’. We have become afraid of change. David Suzuki and his foundation spearhead the fear of change at every opportunity. His theories support an idea that the world should be a constant and quiet place.

will reap the votes of their followers. This is where science is being clouded by politics. And the alternative scientific climate theories are being squashed because it is not green enough or their ideas cannot be leveraged as votes. Taxes have been created in B.C. on a gas that humans naturally exhale. The confusion of carbon footprint taxes is now bleeding our schools and hospitals of funding. Those funds for example are going to groups of people who have figured out that dumping fertilizer into the local ocean will qualify as a huge dollar credit. This is political science at its best.

are a necessary part of the shift from polluting fossil fuels to clean energy, as has happened recently in Canada. At worst, there is some evidence that wind installations may cause annoyance and sleep disruption. But most of the resulting minor effects can be overcome by regulations governing how close windmills are to residences. On the other hand, we know that using fossil fuels for energy has profound effects on human health – and on the economy. The Canadian Medical Association reports that in 2008 air pollution in Canada was responsible for 21,000 premature deaths, 92,000 emergency room visits and 620,000 visits to a doctor’s office. And a new study by the Pembina Institute found that “health impact costs associated with burning coal for electricity in Alberta are close to $300 million annually.” When it comes to wind power, we have to be careful to ensure that impacts on the environment and on animals such as birds and bats are minimized, and we should continue to study possible effects on health. But we must also be wary of false arguments against it. www.davidsuzuki.org

Six teens from Uranium, Sask., are given a chance to express themselves through song after dying in a roller coaster accident in the musical Ride the Cyclone by Atomic Vaudeville.

Musical tells stories of teens after accident J BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

ane Doe’s past is a mystery. She lost her head in a roller coaster accident and steals one from a doll as a replacement. Her deep black eyes are surrounded by the sunshine blond curls that frame her face. “She stole this doll head and doesn’t know who she is and has no recollection of anything,” said Sarah Jane Pelzer,

who plays the character in Ride the Cyclone, created by Victoria’s Atomic Vaudeville. “She is a dolllike character and there is a stiffness to it, disconnectedness.” Jane Doe is reactionary and always lives in the present because her past is blank. She’s one of six teenagers singing for a chance to live between life and death at the travelling fair. They’ve been given the chance to express themselves after death

by Karnack, a mechanized, fortune-telling machine. Karnack feels responsible for the teens’ death because he foresaw it but couldn’t warn them because he was set to family-fun mode. The teens just wanted to leave the small town they grew up in, Uranium, Sask. But because of the accident they realize it will never happen. The musical opens with the teens coming to that realization. “It’s a haunting piece

right at the beginning,” said Britt Small, co-director and producer of Ride the Cyclone. She said that while there is humour in the production there is also a respectful and heart-felt story that runs through it. “It has touched people quite deeply, people who have experienced death in their lives so there is this resonance with audience members,” she said. Each teen tells their story through song. Pel-

zer said many people come back to see the production several times. She attributes the repeat attendance to the level of detail in the story. “Everyone is always living their story,” she said. “There are so many tiny gags and moments going on during the (main) action.” Nanaimo is the last stop on the musical’s tour. Small said cast members expect to see family in the audience during the performances.

music finale takes flight by RosemaRy PhilliPs

The joyful songs of birds will rise from the instruments of Vancouver Island Symphony musicians during its season finale Birds of a Feather. The finale is Saturday (April 20) 7:30 p.m. at the Port Theatre with pre-concert talk at 6:30 p.m. The concer t combines bird songs and nature with the fascinating and mystical sounds of Cantus Arcticus (Concerto for Birds and Orchestra) by Finnish composer Rautavaara, and the world premiere of Ornithomancy by Vancouver composer Jocelyn Morlock. Paolo Bortolussi, VI Symphony’s principal flutist, will be centre stage as the soloist to perform Ornithomancy, a work that was commissioned by the Symphony. This concert concludes with Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. Winnipeg born Jocelyn Morlock is really into birds. “They are never really at rest,” she said. “Their heads and eyes move constantly. Even when they are restful they can fly at any time. Ornithomancy is about divining. I am intrigued by the concept, and while I’m not convinced of their ability to predict the future, I have a long-held fascination with birds of all kinds, their flight and songs, flocking activities and synchronized group motion.” Morlock said it’s hard not to associate the flute with birds. “I experimented with Paolo and tested everything out. There are many different moods, feelings. The opening is slow and mysterious. The second section is fast,

flighty, nervous and rhythmic, with bassoon and trombone solos. Flock behaviours do different things, and like a bird, the flute takes off and the others follow. The final section has a peaceful feeling, calm and expansive.” Morlock said she didn’t plan to become a c o m p o s e r. S h e started playing the piano at eight and played a bit of flute in junior high. She always made up music but never wrote it down. It wasn’t until she was 22 that she decided to give composing a chance. Since then she’s been in full flight, earning national and international accolades. Her most recent recognition was a Juno nomination in 2011 for Best Classical Composition of the Year. Bortolussi has been with the VI Symphony for ten years. A few years ago he per-

formed the Canadian premiere of Flight, which was written by his wife Dorothy Chang. He has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician across Canada and the U.S. He has also premiered more than 100 solo and chamber works, with more than twenty written specifically for him. “I don’t get the opportunity to solo

with orchestra very often so this is really special,” he said. “Ornithomancy is a beautiful piece; you can imagine birds in flight, diving and swooping, a ver y moment-to-moment type of piece, like watching bird formations in the sky – at times so close and active, and at other times distantly high, seemingly still, yet moving at a high rate of speed. “There is a connection between flight and flute and birds.” Bortolussi said he is excited about the huge step the symphony has taken. “This is the first of five annual pieces commissioned by the VI Symphony through the Canada Council to feature principal players from the orchestra as soloists. This visionary project is a pretty big coupe and the list of composers is very impressive, like Jocelyn who is firmly established on the international new music scene,” he said. Tickets range in price from $18 to $84 depending on seating locations and are available by calling 250-754-8550, at the Port Theatre box office, or www.porttheatre.com.

NVC GIRLS wins Island medals.

The Nanaimo Volleyball Club Mariners are not only bound for provincials, they’re among the favourites. The NVC’s premier U18 girls’ team won the Island championship on Saturday at the Vancouver Island University gym. The club’s U17 and U14 teams both had runner-up finishes at Islands. “ We w e re s o excited – it seemed like every division we had a medal winner, which was great,” said Bill Rounis, coach of the U18 Mariners. His team went into Islands ranked No. 2 behind Comox, but hadn’t had a chance to play that squad recently. When the teams met in the final, NVC prevailed 25-17, 25-23. Rounis said his players came together and had their best performance at the right time. “[Comox] didn’t actually make a lot of errors. It was all us digging and us having to transition and kill…” he said. “Some of the rallies that we extended,

Danielle Groenendijk, left, and Maddie McDonald make a block during U14 volleyball club playoff action Sunday at the VIU gym.

I haven’t seen that kind of play even with our provincial team. It was amazing, it really was.” There were no MVPs or all-stars chosen at the tournament, but Jenna Pearce and team captain Carlena Chahley were standouts. Because of the Mariners’ tournament results during the season, they have been ranked No. 3 going into provincials at the end of the month.

The lofty ranking just adds to the excitement, said the coach. “ Yo u ’ r e r i g h t there – you know there’s a chance of doing something special and coming back with a championship and a medal,” he said. The U17 Mariners were close in their Island final, falling 26-24, 25-20 to the Victoria Titans. NVC’s top U14 team was defeated by Victoria’s top U14 side.

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Hayley Goodwin of the Nanaimo Volleyball Club Mariners U14 team bumps the ball during a semifinal match Sunday against the Victoria Titans at the Island championships at the Vancouver Island University gymnasium. NVC won the match 17-25, 25-17, 15-12.

All three of the a f o re m e n t i o n e d NVC teams qualify for provincials in Abbotsford. The Nanaimo club will also be entering U15 and U16 teams in Islands this coming weekend at Port Alberni.

COURT SHORTS …

The Nanaimo Boys’ Volleyball Club also entered squads in Island championships in Nanaimo this past weekend. The Mariners U14 blue team won the Island title at the VIU gym, while the

U18 black team placed second at the John Barsby Secondary School gym. Results from U15 play were not available. U16 boys’ Islands are this Sunday (April 21) in Victoria. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The Nanaimo Timbermen’s upcoming season is even more of a rebuild, now, after another major trade. The senior A lacrosse club dealt Cory Conway to the Victoria Shamrocks on Tuesday for first- and third-round draft picks in 2015. Conway was fifth in Western Lacrosse Association scoring last season with 68 points in 16 games. The right-handed forward is from Victoria. “He’d indicated to us that he wasn’t wanting to come back this year; he wanted to stay in Victoria. He didn’t like the commute,” said Earl Nicholson, Timbermen general manager. The GM said the T-men have been trying to compile picks in anticipation of strong drafts the next two years. For this coming season, Nicholson is working on a trade to bring in another scorer, someone he has been coveting for some time. Without Conway and former MVP Scott Ranger, new coach Kaleb Toth will be working with a much more inexperienced group of forwards. “But to go with that, you get a whole bunch of enthusiasm and hard work and guys wanting to make a name for themself,” the GM said. The T-men opened camp Wednesday at the Nanaimo Ice Centre. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Ball players know baseball by the time they get to the premier league. They know the game, they know the fundamentals – but they don’t always know what it takes to win at the higher levels. The Hub City Paving Pirates (3-3) of the B.C. Premier Baseball League head back on the road this coming weekend looking for more wins and more consistency. “It’s going to take some time. It’s all experience,” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. “It’s going to take some time for them to get used to the level of PBL.” A simple, focused approach to the game can often be the most effective. “It’s very seldom the atbats that are going to win ball games for you,” Rogers said. “It’s the routine plays, pitchers throwing strikes and keeping runners off bases [from] free passes. It’s all those little intangibles in a game that lead up to victory.” GAME ON … The Pirates play the Victoria Eagles on Saturday down the Malahat, then travel to play the White Rock Tritons on Sunday. Next home action for the Pirates isn’t until May 4 when they host the Coquitlam Reds.

Four of the five teams competing in the Western Canada Cup will have been embroiled in playoff hockey for a month. The other team, the Nanaimo Clippers, will have to try its best to bring playoff intensity to practice. N a n a i m o ’s B . C .

a playoff series in practice, that’s just impossible, but with hard work we can get pretty close to that speed…” said Brenden Forbes, Clippers alternate captain. Josh Bryan, another alternate captain, said his team will be healthier than other teams at the WCC,

but will need to use its practice ice time to try to get into game shape. “You can do battle drills and hard-working drills and compete in practice as if it’s a game,” he said. “And in the situation we’re in, we have to do that in order to keep up the same competitive

edge that the other teams are going to have coming out of championship series.” Jayson Argue, Clippers goalie, said it will be up to the team’s leadership group to demand playoff pace from the home team. “They will get us ready,” he said. “The other teams will have

playoff intensity, but we’ll have the intensity of actually being back playing hockey again. That will be nice to have, and us being refreshed will be big, too.” The Clippers won’t have the same amount of playoff experience as the other four teams, but Forbes pointed out that tournament hockey is different from a playoff series. The Clippers feel like their best game will allow them to compete. “We got knocked out first round and [other teams will have] won a championship but I think it’s still the game of hockey and it can go either way,” Forbes said.

Thanks to Coach Lauren McAdam and Head Coach Jill Alatalo for the extra training and thanks also to Flipside Gymnastics. Halina has benefited on many levels.

The Nanaimo Hornets and Cowichan Piggies battle earlier this spring at Pioneer Park. The teams meet Saturday (April 20) in playoff action.

Rugby rivals meet in playoffs The Nanaimo Hornets would bring their best to the pitch in playoffs no matter what, but especially since they’re playing the Cowichan Piggies. The Div. 1 men’s rugby teams meet in Cowichan Cup semifinal action Saturday (April 20) at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park. The Hornets (8-4) won their last regular-season game Saturday over the hump, defeating the Port Alberni Black Sheep 56-5.

“There was maybe a seven- or eight-minute stretch in the last 10 minutes of the game there where the guys defended our goal line like it was a tie game,” said Ryan Eathorne, one of the Hornets’ coaches. “That’s what it’s going to take, that sort of guts and effort, to win this coming Saturday.” GAME ON … The Hornets and Piggies kick off at 1 p.m. at Pioneer Park.

The Nanaimo BMX Association has one of the finest tracks around, and it’s willing to share. The club is hosting a free race for any newcomers this Saturday (April 20) at the track at Marie Davidson BMX Park at Beban Park. Experienced riders will be there to show rookies around and pass along tips. Participants need a bike, long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and a helmet. Riders of any age are welcome. Signup and warmups start at 11 a.m., to be followed by racing. For more information, please visit www. nanaimobmx.com or search for the club’s Facebook page.

Mid-Isle club wins in Round 1 The Mid-Isle FC Highlanders took home field advantage and ran with it, as the team advanced into the second round of the provincial championships. The Highlanders, based in Ladysmith but featuring some Nanaimo players, withstood early pressure from a hardcharging Gorge FC side to win 2-1 Sunday at Forrest Field. The winning goal came 10 minutes into the second half, when, from 30 yards out, Andres Algarin lofted a ball just over the leaping Gorge goalkeeper’s fingertips and under the bar. The win moves the Highlanders into the quarter-finals of the B.C. Soccer U21 championships.

Hornets ladies win blowout The Nanaimo Hornets Div. 1 women’s rugby team has huge momentum going into playoffs. The team defeated Kelowna 63-0 Saturday at May Richards Bennett Pioneer Park. The match before that was a 55-0 road win over the Brit Lions. The Hornets women have a bye week before they play a playoff game April 27. Playoff scheduling hasn’t yet been finalized.

Yet neither Brett Hawrys nor Owen Barker has had a chance to nurse their injuries since they helped the North Okanagan Knights reach the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League final.

Barker said Timbermen coach Brad Dougan is pushing the team at camp to instill a hard-working culture. “It’s been good, but it’s been tough. He’s hard on the guys, but it’s a good attitude. “The game’s faster in general. Faster ball movement and running, and better goalies. I’m really excited.” Added Hawrys: “It’s been really high tempo, compared to what we’re used to. We’re really excited

second season in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League as its Most Valuable Player and top scorer. The Armstrong Shamrocks’ captain collected 46 goals and 38 assists in just 13 games. Barker brings an element of feistiness in his game, racking up 29-21-50 and 100 penalty minutes in 11 games. The two have been a one-two punch since minor lacrosse. “We’re expecting to be a big part of the team,” said Hawrys. “They’ve kept us together so we can keep our chemistry going. We’ve played together for so long, from bantam all the way up. We know what the other is going to do.”

ARMSTRONG PLAYERS add scoring, grit.

HELP SOLVE THESE CRIMES THEFT OF DIRT BIKES On April 7, three dirt bikes were stolen from the backyard of 424 Bruce Ave. Two of the bikes were later recovered, but those responsible have not been identified. The theft of the bikes was discovered in the morning of April 7. The three had been chained to a post in the backyard and when the homeowner went outside, he noticed the chains and locks had been cut. The three bikes are a red and orange 1983 Honda CR480, a yellow and blue Suzuki DR100 and a blue Japanese bike of unknown model. Later that same day, the Honda and the Suzuki were located in front of 475 Winchester Ave. Police believe a person residing in, or near the home on Winchester, may be involved in the theft, but there is not enough evidence to proceed with charges.

THEFT OF TOOLS FROM UTILITY TRAILER A utility trailer parked on Rockwood Place, off of Westwood Road, was broken into April 11 and a variety of tools stolen. The theft was reported in the early morning when employees showed up for work at the site. The lock to trailer was also taken by the suspects. A blue Makita chop saw, a blue and red Bosch table saw, an orange and white Ridgid table saw and a blue, 15-litre Makita compressor were stolen.

The individuals pictured here are wanted as of February 18, 2013

Sonata

Elantra

Hyundai dropped the gauntlet with the 2011 Sonata, which was a new sedan in no way similar to its predecessor. The base engine remains a 198-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder (200 horses with the optional dual exhaust), or for more power there’s a 274-horsepower 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder. As well, the Sonata Hybrid operates with a 169-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder connected to a 30-kilowatt (40-horsepower) electric motor for a net output of 209 horsepower. The Hybrid’s other critical ingredient is the use of a 270-volt lithium-polymer battery that helps the car reach speeds up to 100 km/h on electric power alone, topping its direct competitors. The vehicle’s 5.4 l/100 km city and 4.6 highway is near top of the class. The base 2.4 is connected to a six-speed manual transmission, or optional six-speed automatic, while both the turbocharged engine and the Hybrid employ only six-speed automatics. Base GL Sonatas include the usual power-operated controls plus air conditioning, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth short-range wireless networking and keyless push-

Hyundai has been readying itself to better take on competitors by expanding the successful Elantra line to include a two-door coupe and four-door hatchback. The newcomers share the swoopsand-swirls theme that’s visible along the Elantra sedan’s flanks while mimicking the more aggressive front-end style of the Veloster Turbo. Blacked-out grilles and unique wheel designs are another area of differentiation, but from the back, the Coupe is awfully similar to the sedan and identical in both interior and exterior dimensions. The GT is slightly shorter, but its expanded cargo area allows for 23 cubic-feet (650 litres) of room with the rear seats up (compared with 15 – 425 litres – for the sedan/coupe) and more than 50 (1,400 litres) with them folded flat. The Elantra’s 1.8-litre fourcylinder engine puts out 148 horsepower (145 horsepower for states that require partial-zero-emissions tuning), and is at 6.8 l/100 km in the city and a seriously impressive 4.9 l/100 km on the highway with the standard sixspeed manual transmission (6.9/4.9 with optional six-speed automatic). All three Elantras use the same ultra-mod-

ern dashboard and cabin design and it’s a genuine work of art. Base Elantra L sedan models include a poweroperated assortment of features plus a six-speaker audio system. The GT hatchback joins in at the GL trim level (which gets air conditioning) while the Coupe joins in one more notch up at the GLS level, which means the Coupe has the highest starting price of the three.

Veloster

Customers are used to Hyundai not only offering great value, but for the last few years, also offering head-turning packaging. The five-passenger Tucson is no different: tight proportions, very little overhang beyond the front wheels and slashing longitudinal lines certainly make it look substantial and anything but “entry level.” Inside, everything fits just right, from the seat bolsters to the shifter and radio controls that immediately fall to hand. For the Tucson’s small size, there’s no shortage of interior room. The rear passenger doors open wide to swallow people or larger boxes. The Tucson features a four-cylinder strategy with a 2.0-litre engine rated at a very respectable 165 horsepower and an optional 176-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. Although the 2.0 is available with a five-speed manual transmission (or the six-speed automatic) and is only available on front-wheel-drive models, the 2.4 steps in if all-wheel-drive is desired. The AWD comes with a num-

Is the three-door Veloster the definition of divisive? Sure. It’s a love-it-or-hate-it proposition, but more will love it this season as the dramatic-looking Turbo has finally arrived. The front-wheel-drive hatchback plays in a different sandbox than Hyundai’s other refreshed Type: Four-door compact tall wagon performance car – the Genesis Coupe Base engine (hp): 2.0-litre DOHC I4 – where affordability and fuel economy (165) are as important as eye-catching Optional engine (hp): 2.4-litre DOHC I4 styling.

power), a 1.6L turbocharged EcoBoost (178hp), 2.0L EcoBoost (240hp) and a hybrid that pairs a 2.0L inline four with an electric motor and weight-saving lithium batteries. There’s even the Fusion Energi – a plug-in hybrid – that will be available early next year. During one leg of the drive route, I scored the top-trim Titanium AWD, which comes only with the 2.0L EcoBoost. As expected, there was some turbo lag, but this engine spooled up quickly and delivered strong acceleration, and decent punch when you want to pull out and pass.

BY NEIL MOORE I remember some years ago asking a Ford rep why we couldn’t have the European Focus, which was light years better than the frumpy model sold here. His answer: ours was “built for North American tastes.” Huh? Are we no more than the hillbilly colonial cousins, unable to appreciate the nuances of sophisticated Euro style, ride and handling? But that was prerecession, and now North Americans also enjoy a vehicle lineup that has made quantum improvements in recent years, propelling Ford to top spot in terms of Canadian market share.

The Jeep Cherokee is the first mid-size sport-utility vehicle to feature rear-axle disconnect, resulting in reduced energy loss when 4x4 capability isn’t needed.

Inbrief

Spring is in the air, and all across the country Canadians are putting away their ice skates, dusting off their roller blades and consigning their snow tires to the garage. In the spirit of a season, CarCostCanada suggests vehicle owners shake off Old Man Winter’s chilly grip with spring-cleaning tips. Spring cleaning the outside of your vehicle means just what it says: cleaning everything visible from window glass to wheels and tires. Take special care with flexible rubber and silicone parts like wiper blades and weather stripping as they can crack in cold weather. Last but not least, check plastic headlight and taillight covers for scratches, cracks and scuffs before applying a protective coat of wax highlighted by a gentle polish. Spring cleaning the inside of your vehicle starts with exposed surfaces and includes a few places that aren’t easily seen like ventilation ducts and air filters; the latter should be replaced if they look dirty. Salt- and mud-encrusted winter floor mats should be switched out for lighter summer mats, then vacuum and shampoo the seats and carpets. Finish off by going over the inside glass and rear-view mirror with a soft cloth and some glass cleaner – you’ll be amazed at the new clearer, sharper view you’ll enjoy. Cleaning the underside of your vehicle is easily done, either at home with a pressure washer or at your local coin-operated car wash. Blast away the accumulated mud, dead leaves and road salt that can build up in nooks, crannies and all four wheel wells.

The exclusive, streetlegal and single-spec 2014 SRT Viper TA is specifically built for performance drivers who like to exercise their machines at the race course. Based on the SRT Viper model, the 2014 SRT Viper TA package – TA stands for time attack – builds upon the legendary on-track capability, 50/50 weight distribution and largest contact patch in the production car world. The suspension is upgraded specifically for on-track usage and to maximize the performance of the Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. Under the hood of the 2014 SRT Viper TA is the handcrafted, allaluminum 8.4-litre, midfront V10 overhead-valve engine. Performance ratings are 640 horsepower and 600 lb/ ft of torque – the most torque of any naturally aspirated sports car.

The XV Crosstrek Hybrid is Subaru’s first entry in the hybrid segment. Based on the XV Crosstrek crossover, the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid model should arrive in dealerships by year’s end.

Subaru introduces first hybrid vehicle Subaru Canada, Inc. has announced the brand’s firstever production hybrid vehicle, the Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid. Based on the popular XV Crosstrek crossover introduced for 2013, the 2014 XV Crosstrek Hybrid model will arrive in Subaru dealerships during the fourth quarter of 2013. In developing its first-ever hybrid, Subaru chose one of its popular, go-anywhere crossover vehicle platforms. As a result, the new Cross-

trek Hybrid offers all the capability and versatility of the gas-powered Crosstrek. The Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid combines a 2.0-litre Subaru “boxer” engine with a 13.4-horsepower electric motor that’s integrated into the continuously variable transmission. A 100-volt, 13.5-kilowatt nickel-metal hydride battery is located under a remodelled rear floor area and the car’s engine uses an integrated starter generator for the automatic start and-

stop feature. The compact hybrid system weighs just 95 kilograms and places the electric motor just behind the transmission and in front of the continuously variable transfer clutch. With the addition of all the new features, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid weighs approximately 136kg more than the gasoline Crosstrek. Under light acceleration, the hybrid system uses the electric motor for initial vehicle acceleration and then starts the gas engine.

Kia reveals Cadenza during Canadian show

Kia’s entry into the premium-car segment, the all-new 2014 Kia Cadenza, was revealed at the Canadian International Auto Show. Luxurious appointments, advanced technology and a European-inspired design announce the Cadenza as a premium sedan and the new flagship vehicle for Kia Canada. The sedan is equipped with a smooth-revving 3.3-litre V6 engine providing a combination of power and efficiency. Using gasoline direct injection technology the V6 engine is capable of producing an estimated 293 hp at 6,400 rpm and an estimated 255 lb/ft of torque at 5,200 rpm. Power is routed to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission, with a manual shift mode and steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The Cadenza wraps its occupants in a environment complete with soft high-grade leather upholstery and wood and chrome accents. Ambient lighting and horizontally positioned switchgear radiates an uncluttered and sophisticated esthetic. An elegant analog clock centred between the centre stack buttons lends a classic feel. The centre console is angled toward the driver for optimized control, and an available high-resolution TFT LCD screen in the gauge cluster showcases a wide range of vehicle information. Chrome bezels surround the HVAC and audio controls, air vents and the standard push-button start. Standard Bluetooth, wood-trim door inserts, one-touch automatic up/down power front windows and power-folding heated outside mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators all enhance the Cadenza’s premium image.

KUDOs to Pressed for Time Dry Cleaning for the excellent job they did on my very dirty sets of white draperies. They came up beautifully and re-hung beautifully, too. Thank you so much for the great job. A sMOKIN’ HOT THANK yOU to George, owner of Smokin’ George’s Barbecue Restaurant for sharing his time and giving tips to help three Grade 11 students plan a pulled pork concession stand at the Brentwood College School Rowing Regatta April 26-28. A bIg ApOlOgy bOUqUeT to the poor guy I yelled at in the parking lot at at Country Club Centre recently. My sincerest apologies. Another guy had just cut me off and just about hit my car – I thought it was you. Immediately after, I realized my mistake. Signed, the embarrassed Maserati driver. plAyfUl THANKs AND A rOwDy sHOUT OUT to Paige Foster and Jumping Jiminy’s Playland and Cafe for helping a young man learn the basics of running a business as part of his high school Entrepreneurship 11 course. Your support, encouragement and generosity is helping to create the caring business people of the future. fAbUlOUs cUbIsT/MODerN bOUqUeTs of graphite and coloured pencil spring tulips for Ian Garrioch, an exceptional visual arts instructor and artist at Vancouver Island University (formerly Malaspina University-College), now retired. Highly respected for his no-nonsense top quality standards, Mr. Garrioch brought out the best in every one of his students.

Beefs

A HUge bOUqUeT to ITS Telecom for the prompt response to our recent tech issue and A bIgger bOUqUeT to Ariston for his professionalism, friendliness and speedy resolution. A great local business. We are lucky to have them in our community. A very lArge sprINg bOUqUeT to the kind police officer who responded to my call about a sick deer on Sandra Road. He had the sad task of dispatching it (it was dying), which must have been difficult. He was compassionate enough to call me at home to let me know the deer was out of its misery. That call meant a lot to me.

A frAgrANT bOUqUeT to the football team at John Barsby Community School. With their compliments, a young man delivered and spread a whole load of nature’s best fertilizer for a couple of seniors. You are an inspiration to all teams. May all your seasons be filled with touchdowns. A beAUTIfUl bOUqUeT Of sprINg flOwers to Cheryl

bouquets A beAUTIfUl bOUqUeT AND THANKs to Midas employees Brad and Don for helping when I had unexpected car trouble. Your helpfulness and quick action prevented congestion on the road and got me back on my way in short order.

Davies and Richard Allen at Harris Oceanside Chevrolet for being so kind and patient with me while I was in my car dilemma. They truly went over and above for customer service. A belATeD bOUqUeT Of sUNsHINe to the staff in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s ambulatory care wing. Their kindness restored my faith in the medical system and the professionals who care for us.

A sUcK-IT-Up beef to the person complaining about not getting a tip for a takeout order. A tip is not mandatory. It is at the discretion of the patron to give or not. For you to think that you deserve a tip just because someone bought food there is crazy. Where does it end? I don’t mind tipping a waitress who has given me service over the course of the meal, but you just handed a box or bag to someone. A fAIlINg beef to people who don’t to return shopping carts to their proper places. A cOMMUNIcATION beef to people who advertise events without showing the admission prices (except when free).

ADvANce bOUqUeTs to the person who purchased a stainless steel kitchen tool set, or piece of the set, marked SOLA on the back, from Value Village in the past two months and is willing to return it to me at cost. A sentimental loss for a senior. Please call Carol at 250-591-5224 for pickup. A wArM bOUqUeT to Stuart, Mason, Don and Terrance of Servicexcel. We’re really happy with the heat pump they installed for us. Professionals in every way.

Thursday, April 18, 2013

A fUTUre bOUqUeT to anyone who can help find a cat, lost from an apartment building behind Country Club Centre. The female cat is orange, black and white and it slipped out into the hallway on April 7. The cat is 10 years old and requires medicine. A bOUqUeT Of OrcHIDs to Dr. Cobus Smith and all the staff on the sixth floor of NRGH for the excellent care I received. A HUge bOUqUeT Of sprINg flOwers to Shawn at Nanaimo Seniors Village who, with members of the staff, put on a fun Vegas week. It sure helped bring us out of the winter blues.

A KArMA-wIll-geT-yOU beef to the bored youths in the south end who are throwing rocks at house windows. We dealt with three broken windows last year, so we were out quite a bit of money. We finally replaced one window with unbreakable glass. Now you’ve targeted another. And it’s not just our house. The RCMP does nothing so you keep on doing it. Hopefully you’ll get caught and charged. A HUge beef to the shop mechanic who put lubricant in my brake fluid reservoir. You cost me more than $1,300 in repairs and could have caused a bad accident.

A sHAMe-ON-yOU beef to all the cyclists who ride without a helmet. Don’t you know it is the law? Also shame on those who ride their bikes on sidewalks – almost running down walkers. A third beef to people driving their cars with expired insurance. If you get into an accident, you pay out of pocket for yours and the other person’s expenses.

Side Gore

‘Bout Time

A beef to all litter bugs. Along Lantzville Road heading to Shook Road, the ditches are strewn with garbage. Making matters worse is a recent display of underwear stapled to posts. Come on. Keep our beautiful city beautiful. A beef to a man at a department store who asked the lady with the white cane if she was looking for a blind date. Vision loss is no joke. May you always be blessed with your sight, sir. AN UNHeAlTHy beef to people who smoke in public places. The smell makes me sick to my stomach and I don’t appreciate being forced to share your habit. If you must smoke, why not do so in your own homes? This goes for marijuana smokers as well. A yArD wAsTe beef. Other cities have curbside pickup and we have to burn gas to recycle yard waste. A beef to drivers who speed down Fitzwilliam Street and turn right onto Milton Street from the Parkway. Slow down at the traffic light. There was a horrible accident there recently. Who will be next? A frUsTrATeD beef to people who complain about how things are done, but refuse to step up and help out so change can happen.

David Orrin Livingston August 19, 1943 (Schenectady, New York) - March 29, 2013 (Nanaimo, BC) David was a great friend and supporter to many people across Canada and the United States. He will be dearly missed by his family: sister, Mary Snyder (Mansfield Center, Connecticut); brother, William Livingston (Lynchburg, Virginia); nieces and nephews—Kenneth Snyder (London, UK), Douglas Snyder (Belchertown, Massachusetts), Katie Snyder (Denver, Colorado), and Kathi Bold (Baltimore, Maryland); a 98-year old uncle in New Jersey, and many cousins scattered across the US. He was predeceased by his parents, Orrin and Teresa Livingston. David designed and thoroughly enjoyed a life of adventure. He developed an early interest in architecture, which he studied at Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania, and even built an octagonal home for himself in Usk with lumber he had cut himself. From his college days onward he made many cross country trips to explore the land and visit with friends and relatives, much to their delight. The last chapter of his life was spent in Nanaimo where he wholeheartedly pursued his passions: community involvement, volunteering, arts patronage, nature studies, and fruit and nut tree propagation. Hundreds of Nanaimo, Protection Island, and Gabriola Island yards are adorned with the trees and shrubs David grew and gave away. A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, April 27th at 12pm in the auditorium at Bowen Park. For more information please visit www.leavenopots.com. Sands ~ Nanaimo (250)753-2032

the new sears nanaimo

you’ll love what we did with the place. It’s official: Sears Nanaimo is re-open. And we think you’ll see we’ve changed for the better. We’re talking super helpful staff. Shops with more brands. And prices that aren’t pricey. We’ve refreshed and refashioned every department, and added more fabulous per square foot. Plus, you’ll find great in-store deals wherever you look. So hurry in today. And don’t worry, Nanaimo. There’s plenty of new to go around.
