Families face choice in lake super-school

Kerry Park future in your hands

Million-dollar question Community has one more shot to help shape centre reno

P

arents in Lake Cowichan have until Friday to decide if they will keep their Grade 4’s at Palsson Elementary School or send them to the high school in September. “With the reconfiguration announcement, parents of Grade 4 students have the option for the students to stay at Palsson for Grade 4, or move over to Lake Cowichan Secondary School which is being renamed Lake Cowichan School,” explained LCSS principal Nicole Boucher last week. “I think it was a respectful decision to give parents a choice. I think for some parents it will be an easy decision, but some are still looking for more information.” Boucher, along with vice-principal Dani Garner, Palsson principal Fergus Horsburgh and A.B. Greenwell principal Jann Drake, held an information session at the school last Thursday for folks looking for more information. The reaction from parents has been mixed. Mike and Belinda Waller, however, have settled on sending their daughter, Jill, to the former high school. “For me and Mike, first and foremost it was about the building space. (Palsson) is already so small and the thought of two more portables there didn’t sit well,” she said Monday. “I’m comfortable with the community there,” she added of the soon-tobe-former Lake Cowichan secondary. Effective July, the newly named school will see students from Grades 4 to 7 studying on the upper floor and students from Grades 8 to 12 on the first floor. Last year’s configuration saw Grades 5-8 on the upper floor and Grades 9-12 on the bottom. Waller isn’t concerned about her daughter being exposed to the older crowd. Don Bodger more on page 9 Kim Liddle says the CVRD is focused on taking direction from the community on what to do next with aging Kerry Park.

P

ublic input will go a long way toward determining the next step for the Kerry Park Recreation Centre. The aging facility needs repairs and some sort of facelift, but just how much gets done remains to be seen. The final community open house takes place Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m. to noon in the arena warm room and the feedback form submission deadline is next Wednesday, June 5. All the input then goes before the Kerry Park Commission at a June 11 meeting. “I’d like to focus on the commission is really taking direction from the community where we go from here,’’ said Kim Liddle, division manager for South Cowichan Recreation. She stressed people don’t have to go to a lot of trouble to provide feedback. Forms can be obtained online at www. yourkerrypark.ca/feedback. “Take the time to fill it out,’’ said Liddle. “It can take as little as two minutes. “We have tried to make it as simple as possible.’’ The whole process of deciding the future of Kerry Park started in March with three roundtable discussion groups,

involving 12 different service clubs and Parent Advisory Councils from various schools. “We took all the information we gathered from the community and took it back to the commission,’’ said Liddle. “They’re really wanting the community to drive this process.’’ About 75 people have attended the first two community open houses May 23 and 28 and “we’ve had lots of responses on-line,’’ said Liddle. Most people answering the question about what to do with Kerry Park have indicated “we cannot do nothing.’’ Kerry Park is almost 40 years old and in need of serious repairs and maintenance at the very least. It’s up to the public to decide if more should be added along with that work, but, of course, it comes with a higher cost. There are basically three options on the table for consideration. Liddle describes Option 1 as the repair option. “It’s doing a lot of internal replacement, electrical and a seismic upgrade,’’ she said. “It’s just completely renovating what we have.’’ There will also be repairs to the mechanical, plumbing and refrigeration systems, replacement of the arena slab and rink boards and repairs to the parking lot and the exterior building envelope. more on page 8

Duncan man pleads not guilty in Terry the terrier case

Got a comment or a story? email editor@cowichannewsleader.com phone 250-746-4471

UP FRONT

Brandon Harrison pleaded not-guilty in Duncan provincial court Tuesday against three separate charges in connection with the beating of a Boston terrier. Harrison, 26, is facing charges of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, criminal harassment and causing an animal to continue to be in distress.

A court date for Sept.10 has been booked to confirm a tentative trial date of Oct. 15. Chris and Leigh Davies were witnesses to the April 21 incident where they spotted the terrier they’ve been referring to as Terry on Cowichan Lake Road. According to Davies, a man pinned the dog by the neck to the road and punched him three

times in the head, before throwing the dog into the ditch. The Davies addressed the man and heated words were exchanged, including what Chris said was a nasty threat by the man to his wife when she said she was going to call 9-11. “He said, ‘I’ll f---ing kill you if you dial 9-11,” he recalled in a previous article.

Conservationists say May rain has helped replenish the Cowichan River, but the push to change water release controls has not wavered.

May showers bring joy to salmon smolts Cowichan River flow: Conservationists get reprieve while awaiting word on community bid to store more water longer in Cowichan Lake

Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

M

ay showers have been a lifesaver for Cowichan River’s fish and smolts. But Gerald Thom, president of the Cowichan Lake and River Stewardship Society, is nervously awaiting provincial permission to store river water behind the lake’s weir, to give adequate fall flows to spawning salmon. “The rain has absolutely helped; the river’s well up,” he said Thursday. Still, he was disappointed forest ministry manager Brian Symonds hadn’t yet decided if local stakeholders, First Nations, governments, and river-permit holder Catalyst Paper, can control and store that water — outside B.C. permit levels. “If we don’t get the go-ahead, the ministry’s probably going to dump water, like they did last year,” Thom said, dreading that waste of water needed to prevent salmon deaths, as happened dur-

ing September’s drought. Symonds did not answer calls by press time Thursday. But Thom and other locals are tired of ministry foot-dragging while precious spring water’s lost. “It’s a bit of a shame the decision hasn’t been made yet,” he said. “It shows how slowly the wheels of government grind. We’re all waiting with bated breath do see if we can move to the next step. “We’re at full storage storage now, so it (weir storage) has to come back up to where it should be — it’s a question of if we can keep the water during the summer. If we have a dry June and July, we won’t have adequate water,” he said. Once Symonds’ ruling surfaces — after about a year of local-control talks so far — valley stakeholders would work with Catalyst to manage the weir through the next two months, explained Thom. “Delays in this decision have shown local management is the answers to timely decisions.” Thom, a lakefront property owner — drowned his neighbours’ fears about their land sinking

under weir storage. “It’s definitely a misconception. The current water level in the lake is the level we hope to hold until the end of July. “There is no concern. I’ve made it a point to be very involved,” the One Cowichan member, and Cowichan Watershed Board advisor said. “Everything depends on what happens with rainfall in June and July for what we do this fall.” Still, Matt Price of One Cowichan was optimistic as B.C.’s majority Liberals have promised to “keep going with a process to update the creaky, old legislation that governs water management in B.C., and to introduce a Water Sustainability Act in the legislature by 2014.” “If we are to see meaningful local control in the Cowichan, or anyplace else in B.C.,” his email says, “the language of this new law needs to enable it to happen. “In practice, the law would say appropriate local authorities, like our Cowichan Watershed Board, can ‘draw down’ powers now wielded by the province with the say-so of cabinet.”

Coombs-like market proposed for Saltair Stocking Creek: Developer pitching unique cargo container design

Nick Bekolay

News Leader Pictorial

A

small Coombs-like open-air market has been proposed for Saltair by a local landowner. The proposal, dubbed the Stocking Creek Open Market, is the brainchild of John Morris, owner of Saltair Self-Storage, the Saltair Mobile Home Park and HomeFront Modulars, a Cowichan Valley modular home dealership. Morris aims to develop the vacant lot south of the mobile home park into an open-air market where shops and restaurants — owned by the retailers themselves and managed by a strata council — would be housed in converted shipping containers. The market’s novel and unique architecture will draw people in, Morris said, transforming it into “a destination spot.” The development would be pedestrian-focused, Morris said, to draw people out of their cars as they wander through the market. Morris thinks Stocking Creek would serve as an ideal location for local artisans and farmers selling the fruits of their labours. Others have expressed interest in operating coffee shops, soup and sandwich shops, a specialty wine store and a physiotherapy clinic onsite, he said. Vacant storefronts and surplus retail space in nearby Ladysmith and Chemainus haven’t deterred Morris, who is “definitely” convinced demand for a develop-

And it’s ownership at extremely low costs for a commercial development.” Building up “brick-and-mortar” equity through their business would be a “huge value enhancement” for would-be owners, he added. The market would be housed on a vacant lot, currently owned by Morris, measuring 140 feet wide by roughly 650 feet long. Morris aims to convert the lot to a commercial strata property with

a service road and common area fronting a strip of 20 individually owned lots measuring 25 by 80 feet each. The lot, located in CVRD Electoral Area G, is currently zoned local commercial or C2, Morris said, meaning approved uses include bakeries, offices, restaurants and retail stores. No change of zoning will be required, Morris said, but a variance on lot size and setbacks will be necessary. Morris submitted an application for the necessary variances to the CVRD “three weeks ago,” he said, and he expects a decision in “eight to 12 months.” Under the existing zoning rules owners are allowed 50 % lot coverage, Morris said. At 2,000 square feet apiece, Stocking Creek lots allow owners to “easily achieve around 1,000 to 1,100 square feet” of building space, Morris said, with room to spare on the remainder of the lot for displays or exhibits. If approved, Morris expects the project to have “a really positive impact on property values” in the Saltair area, he said, adding everyone he’s spoken to “has been very positive and supportive.”

What will it look like? The concept of using “upcycled” shipping and storage containers for homes and retail space has caught on in Europe where space is a precious commodity, according to developer John Morris. But it’s still relatively uncommon in North America. Common design themes like brushed aluminum roofing and cedar siding would help make the market “visually very attractive,” Morris said, as would the development’s “green-focused” walkways and garden-like green spaces. Corrugated steel containers are incredibly strong and can be stacked 10-high, Morris added, but once they’re incorporated into buildings, they’re rarely recognized for what they are. “These won’t look like shipping containers,” he added.

Burned-out family grateful for community support Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

K

aren and Nathan Taylor and their two young children are slowly getting back on their feet after they lost everything in a devastating fire at their Bundock Avenue rental home in Duncan at the end of April. Karen Taylor said they’re grateful to the community for all the donations of clothing and household items and toys for sons Joseph, who just turned seven on Wednesday, and Brendan, 5. They’re especially grateful to Duncan firefighters for their work on the blaze and more. “The firefighters donated a Canucks’ jersey to my husband,’’ said Karen. The Taylors have temporarily relocated to

another rental property owned by the same landlord as their previous residence. “It’s permanent till we find out what they’re going to do to the house,’’ said Karen. The house is being rebuilt, she said, but will take at least six months before it’s ready for occupancy. “We’re managing pretty good now,’’ said Karen. “We’ve got enough donations of furniture to survive on.’’ Donations to help the Taylors have still been coming in and are welcome at Duncan Auto Glass at Unit 3-2905 Allenby Road between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. “We just got two more boxes of donations,’’ said Karen last week. She said nothing definitive was found to be the cause of the fire that started in the living room area.

19-year-old Duncan man was key to breaking a Victoriaarea operation supplying drugs and moonshine to teens. A downtown Victoria art gallery and after-hours club was shut down after its owner was arrested at the end of a months-long Victoria Police Department investigation. Police executed a search warrant at The Loft Gallery, located at 819 Fort St., on May 22 as part of “Operation Dali,” said VicPD Const. Mike Russell. Inside, officers found pounds of marijuana, a large bag of hash, cocaine, prescription drugs and about eight litres of moonshine, a homemade liquor that can poison consumers when poorly produced. A connected residence on Oswego Street also netted methamphetamine, ketamine and cash. The drugs were supplying youth drug dealers who do business mostly on the corner of Douglas and View streets, Russell said.

Three options on the table for consideration from page 1

With $2.4 million available through reserve fund savings and other funding sources, the total cost of borrowing required for that option is $9.4 million. Option two involves the same repairs plus new and renovated changerooms for $12.3 million after the $2.4 million in available funding is deducted. “We would renovate the existing dressing rooms and we would build a new addition to the side of the building to create brand new team rooms,’’ said Liddle. There would also be renovations to existing program and support spaces,

user group office space and water cistern relocation. Option three goes the extra mile, “doing everything in Option 2, we would also add a facade to the front that would be two storys,’’ said Liddle. That would create “more of a community centre,’’ said Liddle of the additional community space that would alleviate the need to go elsewhere. “We do a lot of programming outside the facility utilizing the schools and outside spaces,’’ she explained. Total borrowing required for that option would be $14.4 million after deducting the available $2.4

million from the total project cost of $16.8 million. What each option would cost the homeowner depends on whether the borrowing term is 20, 25 or 30 years. The $9.4 million option would cost the taxpayer $18.25 for 20 years, $16.01 for 25 years and $14.36 for 30 years per year per $100,000 of assessed value. Allowances can also be made to add a pool or library to the complex in the future if that’s what the community decides. In the meantime, the commission will make its decision June 11 and “get things rolling so we can do a referendum by the end of the year,’’ said Liddle.

School getting sport court and playground from page 1

“It has come up with some of the parents, how much interaction there will be with the older students,” she said. “They’ve said they will be planning on as little cross-over as possible. They are still going to have the same lunch times as it’s too hard to staff two different lunch hours. “That being said, the high school students are allowed off campus and they normally do go off campus. And they also have four noonhour supervisors on top of Nicole and Dani doing their patrols.” Waller compared the exposure to what they would get at say the community’s annual hockey jamboree, with a variety of ages attending. “It’s about teaching your children what’s appropriate as much as it’s teaching the older students how to act around the younger ones,” she said. Folks at the meeting indicated parents needed to make a decision by today to give the district an idea for staffing needs. However, if they decide by September their decision isn’t working in the best interest of their child, there may be room for change. “It is our hope for preliminary staffing that parents will make their choices by the end of the month

He also confirmed a new playground and sport court will be built at the Lake Cowichan School site with construction starting Septem-

Choose quality, not vanity for Kerry Park

Door number two: Renovation should ensure you can meet the needs the builders intended

T

axpayers are basically being given three choices about the future of the Kerry Park Recreation Centre: what must be done; what should be done; and what they’d like to see done. We say vote for what’s behind door number two. It is hardly news to anyone who uses Kerry Park, or who follows Cowichan Valley politics, that the old girl needs some work. It’s plumbing, refrigeration and electrical systems are wearing out. The walls and rink slab are creaky. It needs to better be able to handle an A balanced earthquake. Door number one — a $9.4 million approach the option — simply removes the centre’s right way to failing guts and bones and replaces them with younger, healthier alternago tives. This has to happen. Anyone opposing these upgrades is basically OK with consigning the building to eventual derelict status. Door number three, meanwhile, comes in at little under twice the cost of door number one — $16.8 million is the current estimate. This option says the needs of a community have changed in 40 years; to meet those needs, the community centre needs to expand its mandate and needs a building that will allow it to do that. It’s essentially the nose job, the tummy tuck and the whole new wardrobe that will let you get out there and attract the attention of a whole new class of suitors. But we like door number two. It says leave the plastic surgery to the rich and the vain. Of course you’ve got to fix up the bowels and the ticker. But while you’ve got me on the table, you may as well fix the bum knee and shoulder because a man’s got to be able to take out the garbage, and enjoy a nice walk once in a while. Don’t mess around with pipe dreams or waste your time simply existing. Do what should be done.

We say:

Sometimes you just have to make the best of what you have. The Lake area has a fine facility in Lake Cowichan School that has plenty of room for three-quarters of its student population. It has a fine bunch of educators in place who have best interests of your kids in place. Our teens are not threats to be feared. Plenty of people learned in a one-room schoolhouse and grew up just fine.

A looming restructure at Lake Cowichan’s current high school has raised the question of mixing age groups.

Politics as bloodsport just doesn’t cut it anymore Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

P

olitics isn’t sports. But the way triumphant Liberal MLAs and party faithful are acting, it seems they won the Stanley Cup, or the Grey Cup, on May 14. It’s time for adversarial attitudes by all parties to change to one of cooperation. That means accepting philosophical differences, to replace the tired bloodsport that’ll likely continue into the next sitting of our legislature — whenever the fall date is set. It’ shouldn’t be about winner take all; it’s time for someone in power to start the change we desparately need. Elected officials on all sides should have a responsibility to their constituents, before their party. But it seems the party rules, not the people. In sports terms, Coach Clark’s team should now work with players on the minority NDP,

independent and Green squads to help citizen fans who own the stadium, and pay those pricey MLA contracts. But typical in political games, the parties go back to their dressing rooms for a skull session about outflanking their House opponents in pointless grudge matches. It’s time to change those pathetic rules — for the paying public’s sake. Idealistically picture MLAs and MPs debating constructive ideas about growing our economy — without sacrificing the environment — to stretch our tax base and pay for education, health, social programs and much more without added more debt. That idea seems absurd compared to the traditional bickering in our legislatures and Parliament. So is the notion taxpayers actually prefer tough, smart leaders who solve problems for citzens, not their parties. Co-operation could also include leaders seeking advice from heads of other countries and provinces, business and union leaders and the

An 10-year-old has nothing in common with a 17-year-old. They have different interests, different problems and a much-different outlook on life. And the types of things that 17-yearolds can get into are certainly not the things we want our 10-year-olds exposed to. The younger child will certainly soak up everything the older one does. Do we really want that to be happening?

COWICHAN LEADERS

press, about reaching peace with labour, catching and punishing criminals, clearing our courts, caring for our seniors, veterans and challenged folks. If there’s a better economic and social mousetrap somewhere, let’s use it rather than reinventing one according to a party handbook. But once the castle door closes after election day, voters are largely excluded from the current process — returning to work to pay bills and taxes while grumbling about politics. Little wonder voter turnouts are so low — folks feel alienated. Many of the caring half that voted are truly worried about B.C. and Canada, no matter what party’s in power. They’re sick of the sorry saying ‘That’s politics,’ as if it’s OK to accept nothing constructive will ever be done by our elected leaders as pollution flows, scandals surface, heath care gets sicker, education flunks, social programs suck, First Nations protest, and taxes ride on tired middle-class backs.

Some say NDP leader Adrian Dix paid the price for campaigning without sleazy electionattack ads. But those expensive, negative ads wouldn’t be necessary if our politicians were co-operating rather than insulting and mudslinging their way into office. Our everyday lives surround co-operation, not fighting and scheming. Why should it be different rules for our politicians? Everybody pays to play during the next four years in B.C. So don’t wait. Send your play from the bench to your MLA or MP. We’re all on the same side. Peter W. Rusland is a reporter for the News Leader Pictorial. Reach him at arts@cowichannewsleader.com

Public forum before council moves ahead on police staton

No poaching going on here

Dear editor In a May 17 article in the News Leader Pictorial you state the Green Party elected its first B.C. seat – Andrew Weaver in Oak BayGordon Head by “poaching NDP votes.” The dictionary states that poaching means: 1) to trespass on another’s property in order to take fish or game. 2) to take fish or game in a forbidden area. 3) To become muddy or broken up from being trampled. 4) To sink into soft earth when walking. For example: to take or appropriate something unfairly or illegally; in sports, to play a ball out of turn or in another’s territory, as in doubles tennis. Since when has my vote become someone’s property to be taken unfairly or illegally? Do we not own our vote? None belong to any given party until the voter so marks his/her ballot. No vote has been taken from Routley’s party unfairly or illegally as per meaning of the word poaching. Larry Fiege

A representative of the provincial board of health told local Rotarians: “Through the healthmindedness of groups like yours, it has been possible to break down the main barriers to extermination of venereal disease — prudery and ignorance.”

1942: playgrounds

Mr. R. A. Thorpe asked Duncan city council to help the PTA and Duncan Rotary Club construct a playground at the corner of Festubert and Coronation on property owned by Mr. W. A. McAdam.

Divided local board of education squabbles

Dateline 1942: More school board battles lead to public trustee being appointed Ann Andersen

News Leader Pictorial

M

ost believe the local board of education has been replaced by a public trustee only twice, once in 1985 and again in 2012. Apparently not. In May 1942, Dr. W. Plenderleith was appointed official trustee and would stay in that job for at least the calendar year. Plenderleith invited all members of the former six-man school to act as his advisory committee. The crisis arose during a numbers squabble. Although North Cowichan paid just 56 % of the education costs, far more North Cowichan students than city kids attended the school. As well, it seemed unfair to North Cowichan that it was represented by only three of the six trustees — the other three representing Duncan. Matters reached a head when Trustee R. E. Collis walked out of a meeting following an argument, followed rapidly by Edwin Guns and H. W. Driver. All three handed in their resignations, leaving the board without a quorum. D. D. Chapman, Reeve of North Cowichan, was further upset that one or more of the Duncan trustees had visited the minister of education and North Cowichan trustees hadn’t been invited.

Lake Cowichan’s bed and breakfast operators feel suffocated by town’s restrictive regulations

Friday, May 31, 2013

Tamu Miles

News Leader Pictorial

A

t a time when Lake Cowichan is trying to gain more market share in B.C. tourism, many B&B owners feel the town’s regulations for such establishments are too restricting. David and Beth Kidd, of Kidd’s B&B, recently appeared before council to express some concerns and try to get some answers. Currently B&Bs are subject to a two-room limit, must operate within the single family residential (R-1-A) zoning designation, and must have only one cooking facility. The Kidds pointed out the neighbouring Youbou and Honeymoon Bay areas allow up to four rooms, and that the province indicates B&Bs can have up to three rooms. “After that, the category and tax arrangements change, but more rooms can be used under different regulations,” states the Kidd’s letter to the town.

Beth and David Kidd, of Kidd’s B&B, give a tour of one of their rooms. The couple has been asking Lake Cowichan to allow B&B’s in the town to offer up to four rooms instead of the current two. The Kidds say B&B owners have been working hard to put Lake Cowichan on the map as a tourist destination. During the winter months, activities such as hockey and curling tournaments help pay the bills, but there aren’t enough of these kinds of events to keep many B&Bs afloat. “If you live in Comox, you get

the winter skiing and you get the summer fun on the water, you have a much longer season,” says Beth. “But it’s pretty hard to build a season here.” The town is concerned about the number of vehicles parked in B&B driveways if four rooms were allowed. “As you get closer to municipalities and towns, the density

of population gets bigger and tighter,” said councillor Bob Day. “We’re not dealing with bed and breakfasts on three to four acres, we’re dealing with B&Bs on residential lots. We can’t go up to four rooms.” Joseph Fernandez, the town’s chief administrative officer, said a kitchen is defined as a designated space with the appropriate amenities. “A kitchen is a kitchen,” says Fernandez. “If you plug in a kettle in a bedroom, it’s not a kitchen. If a homeowner is going to plug in a hotplate for (their guests) it’s not a kitchen.” The Kidds say most guests eat out, and B&B owners provide guests with local restaurant recommendations and information. Rita Dustow, president of the Cowichan Lake District Chamber of Commerce said the town needs to be open to change and supportive of businesses. “Two rooms is too limiting,” says Dustow. “You can’t make any money on two rooms. “We should investigate beyond Areas F and I . . . and let the public decide.”

he term “off-label drugs” refers to the use of a drug for a condition that it’s not approved for. A good example of this is using a drug used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure to relieve the anxiety of stage fright. Another is using an anti-malarial drug to treat night time leg cramps. Diphtheria, a serious, contagious disease, has largely been eradicated with only two cases being reported this century. A German physiologist, Emil von Behring, won the Nobel Prize in 1901 for his work in developing an anti-diphtheria vaccine.

Allergies are common at this time of year. Can you outgrow an allergy? About 20% of people do. Many children outgrow their allergies to milk and eggs by the age of five. If you have an allergic child, check with an allergy specialist who can test for allergies and tell you the severity of the allergies your child has. It’s ironic that society equates a tanned body with good health. However, as Health Canada says, “there’s no such thing as a healthy tan”. Tanning is a sign of skin damage and excessive exposure to the sun can cause skin cancers in the future. If you want a quick, tanned look, you can try quick tan lotions. Remember, they do not protect you from the sun. They are just cosmetic colourants.

For advice on allergy and sunscreen products, talk to our pharmacists. We keep up to date on all the latest products available for summer ailments.

The voice of Cowichan’s musical youth will be heard Earlier this year, valley music lovers launched the Voice Awards to encourage our musical youth. This weekend you get to hear some of the winners. Stephen Najera and Hebecca Montoril — recipients of the recording studio time from Zak Cohen from the Woodshop and video documentation from Phil Ives — will be performing.

Also taking part will be Charlie Appleton, Paige Amon and Hannah Morten, who were presented with year-long youth mentorships from the Cowichan Valley Arts Council through the Voice Awards. They will be the headline acts at the monthly Youth Jammers Event June 1 at Island Oak High School on Banks Road in Duncan.

All kinds of styles — spoken word, hip hop, folk, blue grass and punk folk — will be featured in Saturday’s show. Phil Gallant from the East Coast will also bring his soulful voice and folk roots to the show. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for an open mike. The event begins at 7 p.m. Cost is $5. Performers are free. Call 250-701-0978.

Shawnigan Lake Highland dancer reaches rare heights Off to the Nationals: First local to represent B.C. since 1982 Peter W. Rusland

Taryn Neligan, right, won the provincial Highland Dance championships, while Kennedy Plumb was fourth runner-up.

ard work’s just part of the routine for Highland dancer Taryn Neligan. Her efforts paid off, sending Neligan to Montreal in July for a national title shot in the age 10 and 11 slot. But that chance doesn’t happen every year, noted Judy Hogg, Neligan’s teacher at Cowichan’s Celtic Rhythm Highland Dancers. “No one else in Duncan has anyone going to the Canadians. “We’ve been to the Canadians before each year, but this is the first year since 1982 that anyone from the CV has represented B.C.” July 5 sees Neligan face 29 competitors while representing B.C. in the Canadians. She’s stoked. “I’m just having a lot of private lessons and working really hard.” Neligan, 11, earned her title shot May 11 in Vancouver as first runner-up at the provincials — where Hogg highlanders Anne Cherneff, Kylie Kinrade and Kennedy Plumb also competed. “I love to dance,” said Discovery elementary Grade 5 student Neligan. She started Irish lessons at age three with

Hogg, then hopped into Highland studies two years ago. “I just feel like I was born to dance. “On stage, I think of what my dance teacher told me; I keep hearing her voice in my head telling me things to work on.” Hogg said her dancers “take what I give them and work with it.” “The kids compete with each other in class and onstage, and make each other better,” she said, noting “Taryn has a drive most kids don’t have.” Still, nerves can nag Neligan. “I’m really nervous before I go on, but I know I have to give it my best,” she said. “The hardest part is perfecting the steps.” Judging involves the grasp Neligan and her dance mates have on set championship dances and steps in traditional Highland fling, sword dance, Seann Truibhas, and the Hullachan. Fundraising to send Neligan, mom Jennifer, and Hogg to Montreal involve the Celtic Rhythm Dancers annual recital in the Cowichan Theatre Saturday (June 1) at 7 p.m. A 6 p.m. pub night at the Cobblestone Inn June 8 offers a silent auction. Raffle prizes are still being accepted. Meanwhile, Neligan’s focused. “I just want to try my hardest, and do the best I can.”

Sylvia Kaminsky, Lesley Lambert and Dori Taylor show off a little leg while rehearsing Dr. Hook’s You Make My Pants Want to Get Up and Dance for Top of the Town.

eteran directors Alma Hughes and Jo Kelly will present their latest musical revue in Chemainus from May 31 to June 2. Top of the Town brings to the stage a collection of skits and comedy backed by song-anddance numbers set to standard show tunes like the St. Louis Blues March and Am I Blue — “a guys and gals number,” Hughes said. Top of the Town offers moments of potential comic genius through numbers like Dragonet — a tongue-in-cheek play on Dragnet — and Mississippi Revival, a gospel number starring a squirrel. Other musical numbers featured in the show include Dr. Hook’s

You Make My Pants Want to Get Up and Dance and Walk Right In, alongside a “very original” closing number. “The whole show,” Kelly said, “is intended to be really upbeat and fun.” To accomplish this goal, Hughes and Kelly have brought together a cast of 36 performers ages 60 to 87 from the “tremendously talented” Chemainus Seniors Drop-In Centre community, Hughes said. Michael Pickard will MC the shows, and refreshments will be served during intermission. Tickets for Top of the Town cost $15 each and can be purchased at the Chemainus Seniors DropIn Centre at 9824 Willow Street. Shows begin at 7 p.m. Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 2. For more information, call 250-246-2111.

In 1931 Gil’s family left Canada for Hong Kong, then to Canton, China when he was ten, returning to settle in Duncan BC in 1935. He worked with his father, mother and siblings tailoring suits, later adding a dry cleaning business and then developing their family’s department store, Charlie Onn Co. With the fortitude of his pioneer family, it was a hardworking Gilbert who accompanied his father to remote logging camps of Caycuse, Nitnat, Youbou and Port Alberni to sell made to measure suits to the men at the camps.

He graduated from Duncan High School in 1941, and went on to receive his Bachelor of Commerce from UBC in 1947. Gil met the love of his life, Mary Lum, in 1952. He was always quick to say, “I have to be the luckiest guy in the world�. Together they built a very successful women’s wear retail business, Thom’s Fashions Ltd., with 6 locations on Vancouver Island. He had a love of travel both domestic and international. Plus he enjoyed cruising and RVing. His leisure was being with friends, playing mah jong, swimming, going for drives with Mary, and enjoying her Chinese cooking. An avid Table Tennis player from an early age, he became a Table Tennis athlete, winning many gold and silver medals at the BC Seniors Games, 1998-2009. Gil loved his community of Duncan and greatly appreciated the nature of Vancouver Island. Gil was the Charter President of the Duncan Lion’s Club, a lifetime member since May, 1958. Prior to the Lion’s Club, he was a member of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, more recently a member of the Duncan ProBus. Gil received many awards and acknowledgements throughout his life for his countless volunteer and community service efforts.

A special thank you to Dr. R. Gilbert, the Duncan Home and Community Care RNs and home support workers, and Hospice, for their care and compassion before, during and after Gilbert’s passing. Cremation by request. A Celebration of Life will be held from 1 to 4pm, Thursday, June 20th at Cowichan Golf Club, 4955 Trans Canada Hwy, Duncan BC. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. FIRST MEMORIAL FUNERAL SERVICES

HOLDEN, Glenn Lindhurst September 1, 1929 May 14, 2013 In the early hours of May 14, 2013 Glenn began his last flight. Predeceased by his son Gordon, father William J Holden, mother Elsie D Green and James Green. He is survived by his daughter Victoria, wife Andrea, daughter Sherrie, son Micheal, daughter in law Lynn, 6 grand children, 3 great grand children, brother Robert, nieces Beth, Lisa and nephew Robert Glenn. Glenn’s favorite music was by Frank Sinatra and Tony Benett, “I Did It My Way and Fly Me To The Moon�. It could be said both surely influenced his life. Glenn was born in Pasadena, California. He moved to Cowchan Station, Vancouver Island in June 1940 with his brother when his mother married a Canadian logger William N Cox. Thus, began a new and exciting life for a 10yr old which included the benefits of a blended family with the pioneer Cox and Dougan families. His early life was enriched by the adventures of learning the value of being able to live and work in the coast logging and fishing industries long before societal changes determined it was not beneficial for youngsters to be engaged in employment. Glenn extracted the maximum from the life he chose to live. He had the equivalent of a PhD in most of his endeavors whether it was cooking Texas style or in remote B.C. for his hunting and fishing guests or flying. In 1949 his love of flying began when he joined the U.S. Air Force and was stationed in Arabia. There, he was able to work on his off hours with ARAMCO and save enough money such that on his discharge he began flight training in For Worth , Texas. He eventually joined Delta Airlines then Braniff Airlines. As captain he flew many hazardous flights to Vietnam during that war and many other destinations around the world. Once while flying en route to Europe in a Boeing 747 he called his good friend Charlie Dougan living in Cobble Hill to step out on his porch as he was about to lower his altitude and wave his wings. Glenn was a master fisherman and loved hunting. He built his own aerobatic aircraft and joined in local Texas airshows. Once he flew his Piper Super Cub from Texas, was caught in a hail storm on his return flight and severely damaged the fabric covering before landing safely. He usually announced his arrival to the Island by barnstorming over the selected family members house He eventually returned permanently to the Island and his many friends to continue what he loved, fishing and hunting. His family wishes to thank Dr. Terlien and Dr. Holden of the Cowichan District Hospital and the Royal Jubilee hospital for their sensitive care during his illness.

GILMORE, Gary Stephen It is with a heavy heart that we announce Gary Stephen Gilmore passed away suddenly but peacefully on May 21, 2013. Born in 1954, Gary lived his entire life in Chemainus and loved every minute of it. His smile lit up every room he entered and he touched the heart of everyone he crossed paths with. His love for life was infectious and his stories, unforgettable. Gary was a loving husband to his wife Debbie, compassionate father to his children Erin (Trevor); Marie (Maurice); Robert and Mathew (Kristina) as well as a “forever-young� grandfather to Lucas, Liam and Maxis. Pre-deceased by his sister Ann; mother Antoinette; sister Silvia; father William and brother Reg. Today, his brother Bill (Deb) and sister Carole (Dan) along with nieces Nicole, Seneva, Katherine and nephews, Reg and Brian all have fond memories of Gary singing songs around the campfire. Gary had a 35-year career at the Crofton Pulp Mill where he fulfilled his belief in “work-hard, play-hard�. There will be a Celebration of Life at the Crofton Community Centre, June 9th at 2:00pm. Bring memories and stories to reminisce with smiles and laughter. In lieu of flowers and sentiments, we kindly suggest a donation to the Salmon Enhancement Project in Port Renfrew, BC where some of his fondest memories were found. An account will be set up at the Community Credit Union to accept donations in his honour (250) 246-4704.

FRUMENTO, Joseph Roland February 3, 1922 – May 22, 2013 Joe passed away peacefully at home May 22nd. Joe leaves behind his son Earl (Frieda), daughter Donna (Keith), granddaughters Sarah (Greg), Jennifer (Chad), nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his wife Catherine, brother Pat, and sister Lil. Joe began working as a Log Buyer for BCFP in the mid sixties. He was hired by Herb Doman and became Vice-President of Doman Industries, where he enjoyed a very successful career. Joe was highly respected by all he worked with. The last five years of Joe’s life were spent in Cobble Hill on Keith and Donna’s property where he was able to enjoy his “love of lifeâ€? and the nature that surrounded him. The family would like to thank his wonderful caregivers, Lou and Elaine for making his final days so happy. Also Dr. Watson, the RN’s, and Care Aides. A gathering of family and friends will be held at a later date. We love you Dad ‌ and will always miss you. Condolences at www.hwwallacebc.com

Provincial clash: Semifinal losses the only blemish on a productive weekend for girls’ rugby rivals Don Bodger

oth Shawnigan Lake School and Brentwood College went into the girls’ AA provincial high school rugby championships with a realistic chance of winning it all. It didn’t happen for either school, but the members of the two local teams had reason to be proud of their performances. In the end, it came down to a battle between Shawnigan Lake and Brentwood for third place after both suffered semifinal losses. Shawnigan ended up taking third and the bronze medal by virtue of an 11-5 win over its valley rivals. “Playing a third game in three days with 18 players was somewhat worrisome, but Shawnigan took to the challenge with great determination,’’ noted coach Mark Hall. Shawnigan dominated possession and territory throughout the game and was awarded third to match its placing in the previous provincial sevens championship. Brentwood’s Marius Felix, part of a coaching triumvirate with Steve Cowie and Jim Burrows, would dearly have loved to knock off Shawnigan, but the effort the girls exhibited in the

previous game against eventual champion Abbotsford Christian didn’t leave anything in the tank. “The players absolutely gutted themselves,’’ said Felix of the previous game that ended in a heartbreaking 22-17 defeat. Abbotsford went on to thump Heritage Park in the final. “As coaches, you want to see them play their best rugby win or lose and they did that Friday,’’ said Felix. Shawnigan went into the tournament ranked No. 2 and opened with a convincing 47-0 victory over D.W. Poppy. The win set up a semifinal match with Heritage Park, a lower seed than Shawnigan. Shawnigan put itself in a hole, going down 14-0 in the first 10 minutes. “A case of nerves and basic errors had the girls scrambling to establish themselves in the early going,’’ noted Hall. “Falling back two tries to none, the girls worked themselves back into the game and dominated both possession and territory but could not finish against the tough defence of Heritage Park.’’ It remained 14-0 at the half and Shawnigan looked poised to make a comeback. But an errant pass after a successful kickoff reception landed the girls deep in their own end and they gave up another try to an aggressive and competent Heritage Park side.

15-5 and dropped a 9-8 heartbreaker to Central Saanich in the gold medal game Sunday. Alyssa Burrows, Paige Amon, Skylar Pringle and Hayley Boyd provided stellar pitching, with great catching by Madison Rother and Tawni Daniels. McKenzie Stone, Abby Genis, Hayley Yeomans, Rachel Bates, Courtney Roscoe, Kaylee Keck and Lynnea Van Driel were also standouts.

T Stephen Lane

End of the line arrives for Brentwood College’s Ciel Arbour-Bohme, as she’s throttled by Shawnigan Lake School’s Michelle Evans, backed up by Lily Hare, while Nicole Crowley winds up on the ground during the collision. Shawnigan responded with a long period of possession capped off by a try, but Heritage got that one back to make it a 22-5 final. “It was a disappointing result, but on the day Heritage was without question the better side,’’ noted Hall. Brentwood won its first game over Robert Bateman 25-5. That may seems like an easy win by the score, but Felix said paring the field from 16 to eight teams made every game tough. “The quality of the rugby has

improved every year as a result,’’ he said. The Abbotsford Christian game was still in doubt until the late stages. “We played Abbotsford to a standstill till the last six or seven minutes and they pushed a try in,’’ said Felix. The core players on the team — Lauren Aspden, Jenn Lemon, Nambi Mbaja, Georgia Whist, Jessie McIntosh, Carolina Mahecha and Grade 10 student Ciel Arbour-Bohme — were all standouts.

hree games against the Gordon Head Raiders produced three shutouts, but just one went in favour of the Cowichan Bulldogs. The Peewee Bulldogs posted their third straight shutout win in the Greater Victoria Minor Football Association, blanking the Raiders 38-0 Sunday. Cowichan scored on the first play of the game. Jake Paras ran off a nice block by right guard Amy Swanson for his first of three touchdowns in the game. Physical running by fullback Baily Lamont set up the second TD when Alex Van Ryk found his way into the end zone for the first time this season. Rieley Zarate and Damian McCuaig-Jones also contributed to the total with a TD each. Offensive linemen Dalin Koons, Bradley Wilson and receivers Jessie Robinson and Owen Kirk made big blocks to open holes for the Cowichan ball-carriers. “It was a combination of hard running and beautiful blocks that led to our success on offense,’’ noted Cowichan coach Trent Jones. The defensive line led by left end Brayden Belton, and tackles Dennis McDonell and Bill Bickford came up with big plays while right end Pau Juncosa created havoc in the backfield. Safety Kaleb Erikson also helped shut down the Raiders’ passing and running. The Atom Bulldogs lost 34-0 to the Raiders and the Pre-Atom ‘Dogs played a barnburner before giving up a TD in the second half of a 6-0 defeat against the Raiders. “Defensively, it was one of our best games of the season,’’ noted pre-atom coach Devon Lawrence. “The game was purely defensive and in the first quarter neither team gained more than a few yards.’’ Nose tackle Harrison Padur led the Cowichan charge, taking down the Raiders’ running back for a huge loss. Nico Harris also put a stop to the Raiders by making multiple tackles. Running backs Jack Napier-Ganley and Cyrus Upshaw were effective in gaining yards. Late in the third quarter, Gordon Head snuck away to score the game’s lone touchdown. It was a battle and the players still walked off the field with their heads held high.

uccess clearly breeds further success within the Shawnigan Lake School boys’ rugby program. Shawnigan Lake won the island junior boys’ championship on home ground last week in convincing fashion. Coach Andrew Doyle hasn’t seen anything like this Shawnigan Lake team in the 13 years he’s been at the school. Considering all the high level players and championship teams that have come through

the school, that’s saying something. “I would say this is the strongest Grade 10 team I’ve seen,’’ said Doyle. “They’re working hard. They’re on the field three or four times a week.’’ Shawnigan blitzed Nanaimo District Secondary in the first game, manhandled Oak Bay in the semifinal and took care of business with a 55-7 rout of St. Michael’s University School in the final. Doyle said St. Michael’s put up a decent fight in the final, although the score didn’t show it. “They ran out of steam from all

the defending they had to do,’’ he said. Captain James O’Neill, John Mitchell, Brandon Lee and local product Cole Milne were all standouts in the dominant Shawnigan performance. Some are getting an early taste of the next level — the senior AAA provincials. “Lots of the juniors have joined the First XV squad to gain experience,’’ said Doyle. “About five or six of those boys are over here (Abbotsford) now.’’ Shawnigan juniors joined the seniors for a Scotland tour earlier this year.

Midgets’ win streak ends Thunder lacrosse: Meeting with Saanich just one of those games Don Bodger

owichan Valley Thunder teams are having an outstanding season but there’s bound to be a few bumps in the road. • Cowichan Valley Midget A Thunder experienced one of those games Sunday after a string of victories in a 9-3 loss to Saanich. “We just had one of those stinker games,’’ said coach Lorne Winship, who was actually absent from the game due to illness. The Thunder fell behind 3-2 after one period in Saanich and it became 6-3 after the second. Cowichan couldn’t find the net and was shut out in the third. Mathieu Jung, Brandon Corby and Taylor Martin notched the Thunder goals. Tyler Glanfield added two assists and Tyson Black had one. The Thunder returned more to normal Tuesday in a 12-2 thrashing of Juan de Fuca 2. Cowichan took a 2-0 lead after the first period and scored five times in each of the second and third frames.

The team was clicking on all cylinders, spreading out the scoring while perfect passing, offensive execution and steady defence were the differences in the game. Corby, Black, Martin, Braylon Lumb and Jung had two goals apiece. Steven Robertson and Colin Winship tallied singles. All seven players also added assists along with one from Mitchell Page. The Thunder will be missing key players Martin, Chris Branting and goalkeeper Pollo Claxton for games this weekend against Peninsula and Juan de Fuca 1. They’ll be on the Lower Mainland for Team B.C. tryouts. • Cowichan Valley Bantam B Thunder continued riding high following its success in the Hyack tournament. The Thunder was solid with its passing and defending in a 6-1 win over Juan de Fuca. Goaltender Zander Cozine had another great game, allowing just the one goal. Gavin Spencer and Will Wright led the offense with two goals apiece. Sam Baxter and Parker Teufel added singles while assists were credited to Dawson Bittner, Seth Negaard, Caleb Nordstrom and Michael Shepherd.

he odds were obviously stacked against the Ravens with only six players available for their Cowichan Women’s Football League game against the Blue Steel Brew Sunday at McAdam Park. Despite being one player short, the Ravens nearly pulled out a miracle before the Brew scored on the last play of the game for a 19-18 win. Rikki Wylie scored three touchdowns in the losing cause for the Ravens and played a prominent role on defence with two interceptions in the end zone. Nikita Kitagawa also had two end zone interceptions and three more for a remarkable total of five. Kelsey Scholz had three sacks and Morgan Rogers added another. The considerable talent on the Matrix finally clicked for a 40-7 victory over the Crew. Scoring was spread throughout the lineup. Gloria Locke (2), Marcie Welcher, Sara Day, Tara McCaffery and Christine CroninSwitzer all scored TDs. All except McCaffery also added one-point conversions. Sabrina Desrochers had two sacks on defence and Emily Verbruggen contributed an interception. The Wildfire built a 12-0 lead in the first quarter and hung on to defeat the Roofco Sirens 12-6. “We had a tough game,’’ conceded Wildfire coach Chris Mann. “The Sirens played outstanding.’’ Dieneke Pedersen and Keri McKelvie scored the Wildfire TDs and then it became a defensive battle. Kelly Antoniuk and Sue Glenn recorded interceptions while Ginette Bilina’s pursuit led to two quarterback sacks.

The Matrix went down to a 3127 loss against Moo’s Law and the Crew upended the Wildfire 35-29 last Friday night. Jaimie Olson (2), Rhianna Brown, Wendy Charles and Rachel Hastings put TDs on the board for the Law. Brown added an interception and a one-point convert while Hastings also had a sack. Kim Edwards and Kim Scafe re-

corded interceptions for the Law. Verbruggen, Day, CroninSwitzer and Locke notched TDs for the Matrix while Day added a pair of one-point converts and Welcher contributed another. Locke also grabbed an interception. The Wildfire got TDs from Marika Richard, Val Chambers and Erica Dow, with Rhi Kemmler adding an extra point.

Competing in nationals a benefit Micaylla Broadway: Duncan Dynamics gymnast performs at the highest level Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

M

icaylla Broadway is the first member of the Duncan Dynamics Gymnastics Club under coach Olga Mataganova to make it to the national championships. There will be more. “Next year, maybe we’ll get two or three going,’’ said Mataganova. Broadway, 15, travelled to Ottawa last week as a member of Team B.C. for the mammoth national gymnastics competition that involved more than 1,000 athletes, coaches and officials. The trip itself was “tiring,’’ Broadway said. She flew from Victoria to Toronto and on to Ottawa and had an extra stop in Calgary on the way back. Broadway arrived in Ottawa with teammates a couple of days ahead of the competition. “We got a bit of rest and we did some training,’’ she said. Broadway truly had a national baptism by fire. “I was competing against 21-yearolds,’’ she said. That would be intimidating enough for most young gymnasts, but Broadway settled into her routines as much as possible. “I wasn’t too pressured,’’ she said. “I just did my best. It felt like a normal competition.’’ Broadway had her best result in bars where she tied for 21st in a field of 41 in National Open 16+. She also did the vault, beam and floor with consistent results in each discipline

Don Bodger

Balance, agility and pure athleticism, Micaylla Broadway is the complete package and doing very well in gymnastics by bursting onto the national scene. and helped boost B.C. to sixth place in the team competition. “It was a really good experience,’’ said Broadway. Being around the other girls and seeing the older athletes compete has given her a new perspective on the sport. “I’m definitely trying to push myself more in training and get better,’’ Broadway said. “I see what the other girls are doing and I need those skills.’’ Broadway usually trains six days a week at the Duncan Dynamics’ facility throughout the year, other than a week or two. “You can’t really stop or you’ll be out of shape,’’ she said. Broadway is home-schooled that gives her the time to be at the gym more regularly than most students. That amounts to four or five hours each day and 24 to 26 hours a week. “Some days it can be tiring,’’ Broadway said. She started in the sport at the mere age of four and has never wavered in the training required to reach the ultimate level of competition. “I love gymnastics,’’ Broadway said.

Park. Cowichan won the toss and elected to bat first and things didn’t start well with two wickets falling after only six overs and the total standing at 17. Captain Nagy Thomas and Charles Swart then steadied the troops and carried the innings to 113 before Thomas went out for 31. Swart was finally removed for 45. Wickets fell regularly for a while until the total crept to a respectable 200 for seven. By then, Clayton Bodkyn was going strong and harsh on the bowlers in the last eight overs, moving his own score to 68 not out when the innings closed at 261 for eight. The Colts’ batting lineup included some very talented batsmen, but they lacked depth in the lower order and went all out for 86. Hassaan Rahim was Cowichan’s breakthrough bowler, finishing with impressive figures of four for 22. He’s started to become one of the best quick bowlers in the league. Yuri Ahuja, new to the Cowichan team this year, was also effective in taking two for 19. Cowichan has this weekend off and its next game is against Metchosin at Shawnigan Lake Sunday, June 9.
