Valley students going global Renee Andor Black Press COMOX VALLEY — Every single Comox Valley secondary student who went to the provincial Destination Imagination (DI) tournament qualified for the global finals. “Our school district has been one of the bright lights in the province on this — it’s one of the best in Canada at this,” says Jeff Taylor, North Vancouver Island regional director for DI and Mark. R. Isfeld Secondary School principal. This year, “we’re in the unusual, but comfortable, position to decide who’s going to go (to the global finals) because we have more than enough

people qualifying.” Nine Comox Valley teams attended the provincial tournament Saturday at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Greater Vancouver. Though the Comox Valley’s one elementary team didn’t qualify for the finals, Isfeld’s three teams each placed first in their categories and an Isfeld and G.P. Vanier Secondary team placed first in its category. An all-girl Grade 8 team from Highland placed second at the middle school level, and the district also placed third in three categories. The tournament included team challenges in one of six focus areas — scientific, technical, structural, fine arts, improvisational and

global outreach. Teams had from September until the tournament to come up with a solution to the challenge. Teams also had to compete in the instant challenge, which they couldn’t prepare for. Taylor notes the Comox Valley will likely send four, as yet undecided, teams to the global finals from May 22 to 25 in Knoxville, Tenn. The worldwide competition saw over 1,200 teams from 16 countries last year. Although the competitions range in various skills, they all involve multiple skill sets per team, which Taylor says is one of his favourite parts of the challenges. “Destination Cont. on Page 4

A Word from North Island Nick

NICKfacts FACEY Some simple on debt:

Amidst a whirlwind of conflicting ‘info’, there’s actually a pretty simple narrative to debt in BC: • In the NDP 1990s, government debt went up during a time of economic expansion in North America.

PROCESS

• BC Liberals reduced Debt/GDP and began paying down debt between 2001 and 2008. • The global recession of 2008 caused a plunge in revenues. While debt increased, BC maintained its credit rating. • BC is back to a balanced budget and has a plan to pay off debt through the BC Prosperity Fund. “BC’s Triple A credit rating was recently affirmed again, while the NDP had six consecutive credit downgrades during their reign. In any given period, a higher credit rating means BC pays less in interest costs. That means more money for the things that matter – health care, education, and keeping life affordable.”

As we approach the end of the month, fishing has picked up in many lakes and anglers are starting to get out. In Campbell River with the Pothole Lake recent stocking of trout in Echo Lake the area was full of shore fishermen and people fishing from small boats. Maple Lake is fishing well too using worms fished from shore or using a small black leech fly. The Quinsam River has fished well in some of the pools and the water level and clarity has improved. The Oyster River has some nice pools with trout and the upper regions will see more anglers in weeks to come. Saltwater fishing has been hit and miss in most areas for salmon using small plugs er Oyster Riv in various colors fished at Shelter Point and the Hump. Larry Stefanyk author and angler was talking to me about using small flies and thin tippets for catching trout in this area. Larry spends a lot of time fishing the local lakes and fishes the interior lakes. Discovery Pier in Campbell River has seen little fishing action, last year Mel Adams landed a 28 pound salmon on April 20th. The Pier has a fishing culture all on its own with the locals who fish and the tourists who come here year around. To the north of Campbell River, Roberts Lake will start to fish well in weeks to come. The north end of the lake can be very good to fish in mid summer and going deep with small plugs can get you a nice size trout. On Saturday, September 21st, Lorna Duncan will be having free family fishing derby with plenty of prizes being awarded for those who come out. Larry Stefanyk

Breaking down the social clique boundaries From Page 3 Imagination sort of works the left brain and the right brain by making people do things like technical challenges or scientific challenges or structural challenges,

but there’s also an artistic or performance component,” he says, adding a team strong in math could still be out of its comfort zone with the performance aspect of a challenge and a team of extroverted artists

may struggle with the technical parts. “So one of the really strong elements of DI that I like so much is that it brings people together who would normally probably not hang out together in a school.

“It sort of breaks down the social clique boundaries and you get a good mix of people working together.” He also says the program helps hone important skills like “critical thinking, creative

thinking, resilience, collaboration and communication.” Destination Imagination is a nonprofit educational organization which encourages students to use 21st century learning skills.

again as the day progresses. Plantar fasciitis can be caused by many different factors. Tight calf tendons can cause tension and pulling on the plantar fascia. Overpronation, where the feet rotate too far inward when the foot impacts the ground, can increase the stress on the plantar fascia and cause aggravation. Poorly fitting, or old shoes, walking all day on hard surfaces, and running too much without proper recovery time, can also contribute to the

support it needs to heal. A physiotherapist can help you correctly diagnose the cause of your plantar faciitis and give you suggestions to help decrease the stress through the fascia. About 90 per cent of people with plantar fasciitis improve significantly after two months. If the plantar fasciitis continues after a few months of conservative treatment, your doctor may inject your heel with steroidal anti-inflammatory

medications (corticosteroid). If the symptoms persist your doctor may prescribe a walking cast or a splint to wear at night. In very rare cases, surgery is necessary to release the plantar fascia and relieve the pain. Ben Chatterson is a physiotherapist at Rehab in Motion.

These solutions may include decreasing the amount of time training, or walking on hard surfaces, getting an orthotic to correct foot position, and doing specific stretches and strength exercises to support the plantar fascia.

One of the best ways to ice the bottom of the foot is to fill a plastic 500 ml bottle with water, and freeze it. Apply the ice by rolling the bottle under the foot.

Question: What can be done for crooked front teeth? Answer: There are several ways to address crooked front teeth, but it

depends on the degree of crowding. Severe crowding is often best treated with orthodontics (braces) to straighten the teeth. Moderate to mild crowding can also be treated with Invisalign, which utilizes clear trays that are custom made and move teeth gradually and gently. This can be done at your family dental Dr. Joseph Schafermeyer office. Another way to change the appearance of teeth is with composites. These are tooth-coloured resin fillings that are bonded to repair decayed, chipped, fractured, or discoloured teeth. They can also be used to close spaces between teeth, make teeth look longer, or change the shape or colour of teeth. They usually last several years, depend on how much bonding was done and oral/biting habits. Other options include porcelain veneers and crowns. These are thin layers of porcelain that are placed and bonded to prepared teeth. They can be used in situations where one wishes to change the shape, colour, or overall appearance of his or her teeth. They are very lifelike and can last for many years with proper care. In order to find out which treatment would work best for you, please speak to your dentist, or call us for an exam or free Invisilign consultation.

PUZZLE NO. 652


Developing skills From Page 9 a rehab worker with Vancouver Island Health Authority. “These are our core members, but anyone who wants to come and help can sit down and eat.” Both elegant and simple, the Carol’s Kitchen model incorporates VIHA’s community health outreach, the Salvation Army’s Lighthouse Resource Centre and the local Harvest Food Bank to ensure the community’s most needy have not only regular meals, but the means by which to prepare and enjoy them. Participants “self-select” for the program, based on their need, said Sean Junglas, director of the Lighthouse Resource

Centre, which provides the kitchen and dining facilities. “This fits perfectly with our mandate, since we focus on providing resources,” said Junglas. “And this is about developing life skills. We like to find ways to partner with other programs, and this is one of the ways we can do so.” The Lighthouse Centre is actually the third home for what had been a somewhat nomadic program from its inception in late 2011. Holden directed Carol’s Kitchen first at the Sacred Wolf Friendship Centre in Thunderbird Mall, then at the VIHA-run Family Place before finding a permanent home at the Lighthouse Centre. After he and Junglas coordinated its move to the

Lighthouse Resource Centre, the program was completed with the addition of the third member of the triumvirate, Harvest Food Bank, which went from simply a source of donated food to part of the life skills training program. In addition to their cooking skills development, Carol’s Kitchen participants also contribute time at the food bank, where they learn about food security while giving back to the community. “Garth said, ‘We want to start a cooking program. Can you donate any food?’” said Cheryl Elliott of Harvest Food Bank. “We said, ‘Sure, we’ll donate.’ And then (program participants) come and donate time on Friday’s at the food bank. It’s really

a win-win. It’s been awesome.” Last week’s presentation of cookware was sprung on the core members as a surprise when they came to prepare one of their meals on cooking night at the Lighthouse Resource Centre. The gifts were given, appropriately, in the kitchen, with the smell of well-seasoned soup wafting through the room. “It’s one of my favourite days of the week,” Holden said with a smile. “It’s a great community partnership between three groups,” added Junglas, who handled the shopping for a procuring of the cookware. “We’re all trying to help the community, and this is our little contribution.”

WEDNESDAY, APRIL APRIL 24, 24,2013 2013 || NORTH NORTHISLAND ISLANDMIDWEEK MIDWEEK || 13 13 WEDNESDAY,

We strive for eumonia come election time Q.  Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the shortest English word in which every vowel is used once and only once? A.  Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the everyday â&#x20AC;&#x153;sequoiaâ&#x20AC;? and the equally short â&#x20AC;&#x153;eumonia,â&#x20AC;? for â&#x20AC;&#x153;the state of having good laws that are well administered,â&#x20AC;? says Anu Garg in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Dord, the Diglot, and an Avocado or Two.â&#x20AC;?  Other short fivevowelers are â&#x20AC;&#x153;eulogiaâ&#x20AC;? (eulogies or blessings) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;aeriousâ&#x20AC;? (airy), the latter with all the vowels in order.  To add the sometime vowel â&#x20AC;&#x153;y,â&#x20AC;? make that â&#x20AC;&#x153;aeriously.â&#x20AC;?  And for a word that more than takes the vowel prize, consider â&#x20AC;&#x153;ultrarevolutionaries,â&#x20AC;? which contains two full sets of regular vowels! North Island Midweek

lll Q.  A puzzle for you math lovers:  Several cats are brought on board a ship to eliminate a rat infestation. Each cat kills exactly the same number of rats, and that number is larger than the number of cats.  If a total of 1,111 rats are killed, how many cats were there? A.  Let C = the number of cats, R = the number of rats killed by each.  You know C x R = 1,111.  There are only four ways to factor 1,111:  1 x 1,111; 11 x 101; 101 x 11; 1,111 x 1.  So C must be 1, 11, 101 or 1,111.  Since there were â&#x20AC;&#x153;severalâ&#x20AC;? cats, 1 can be eliminated.  But if C is 101 or 1,111, then R = 11 or 1 respectively, meaning more cats Wed, Apr 24, 2013

than rats, so eliminate them as well.  Therefore the number of cats must be 11, with each cat dispatching 101 rats (from â&#x20AC;&#x153;ScienceIllustrated. Comâ&#x20AC;? magazine). lll Q.  For a little comic relief on the job, why not try decapitating your boss? A.  Where the optic nerve exits the eyeball is a gap in lightsensitive retinal cells, creating a â&#x20AC;&#x153;blind spot.â&#x20AC;?  You can locate your own spot by marking two Xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side by side on

a sheet of paper about three inches apart, then closing your right eye and viewing the X on the right with your left eye. Start with the paper about a foot and a half from your face, then bring it slowly toward you.  At some critical distance (which you may need to â&#x20AC;&#x153;huntâ&#x20AC;? for), the left X will fall entirely on your blind spot and disappear. What good is all this?  Now youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to play the decapitation game, say V.S. Ramachandran et al. in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phantoms in the Brainâ&#x20AC;?:  From about 10 feet away, shut your right eye and stare at your bossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head with your left eye, then slowly move your open eye horizontally toward the right â&#x20AC;&#x153;When King Charles II heard about the blind spot, he

took great delight in walking around his court decapitating his ladies in waiting or beheading criminals with his blind spot before they were actually guillotined.  I must confess I sometimes sit in faculty meetings and enjoy decapitating our departmental chairman.â&#x20AC;? lll Q.  What are a few of the truly remarkable adoption stories on record? A.  Those involving animals â&#x20AC;&#x153;adoptingâ&#x20AC;? humans, usually wolves or wild dogs rearing children, says Deirdre Barrett in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Supernormal Stimuli.â&#x20AC;?  There have also been cases of bears, monkeys, chimpanzees and panthers doing

Bill and Rich Sones Strange But True

One of months and spending the best documented a year and a half with early cases was in chimpanzees.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;He 1920 when Kamala, walked by bending his age eight, and Amala, legs and dragging his 18 months, were arms on the ground discovered in a wolvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and leaped about den in India.  Both throwing objects. So walked on all fours, far, he has learned ate only raw meat and some human language kept nocturnal hours.  and social behavior Amala died after a but still makes year without learning chimpanzee noises amid his speech.â&#x20AC;?

A trunk full of Maggie Jackson’s incredible garments will be modeled by customers, friends and staff from the Needle & Arts Centre at the Fibre Fest on Saturday, May 4 from 1 to 2 p.m. Maggie Jackson is an internationallyacclaimed Irish fashion

designer and fibre artist. Jackson began creating her own patterns and designs at the age of 12. Her entrepreneurial skills won her early notice and the coveted title of Northern Ireland’s Young Business and Professional Woman of the Year. This was followed by the Guinness Special Award for Design Excellence, and she won second place in the International

Mohair Association Competition for the most innovative ladies garments. The Needle & Arts Centre will have Jackson’s pattern books and complete kits in the Vendor’s Mall, so these uniquely Maggie designs and patterns will be available. The Vancouver Island Fibre Fest comes to Campbell River May 3, 4 and 5. The very full weekend starts with Friday workshops

in the afternoon, the Vendor’s Mall and an opening reception from 7 to 9 p.m. At the reception, people will have the opportunity to peek at the amazing fibre art that will be on display at the People’s Choice Gallery. Artists will show their work and briefly tell the story of how the item came to be. Also during the evening, students from the Sewing for Fun

program will show some of the wonderful items they have made throughout the year. There will be time for mingling and chatting, with yummy appies courtesy of the Cooking Basics program. Admission to the reception is by donation Another highlight of the Fibre Fest weekend will be the demonstration mall – where a variety of non-

profit organizations showcasing their art and ongoing demonstrations every hour throughout the weekend. Everything from quilting, weaving, spinning, knitting, Zentangle, sock knitting, needle arts and a Spin In will take place here! Workshops are filling up so call and register now.

Registration is available at the Community Centre or the Sportsplex. For more information on these and the many other workshops being offered at the Vancouver Island Fibre Fest, call Judy at the City of Campbell River Community Centre, 250-286-1161 or e-mail: judy.ridgway@ campbellriver.ca
