Bute Inlet crash claims former MLA AlistAir tAylor Campbell RiveR miRRoR

A former B.C. MLA has died in a plane crash in Bute Inlet north of Campbell River. The BC Coroners Service confirmed Harold Long as the man who died in the float plane crash near Stuart Island, in the mouth of Bute Inlet on Tuesday. Long, 72, from Powell River, served as MLA for the Mackenzie riding (as it was then named) from 1986 to 1991 and again as Liberal MLA for the riding of Powell RiverSunshine Coast from 2001 to 2005. Long was the pilot and sole occupant of a DHC-2 Beaver float plane that was spotted overturned in Bute Inlet on the west side of Stuart Island, about 40 km north of Campbell River, late Tuesday afternoon. Search-and-rescue technicians, the Canadian Coast Guard and RCMP attended the scene, confirmed Long’s

parts to keep the city’s water supply system working,” Storry said. “We’re so lucky to have our high quality of water in Campbell River. It’s important to know about our water source, and how our activities can affect water quality. It is essential that we learn what we can do personally to ensure that the high water quality we enjoy today is protected for the future.” Davies, an illustrator, cartoonist, designer and author originally from the UK, is also known as Pete the Pen. He explained how the box animates the journey water takes on its way from the watershed to our taps. “It starts with the watershed and the rain and snow on the mountain that runs down to the rivers, then through the dam and channeled into the city’s system and it demonstrates the way in which the community uses water – drinking water, sprinklers, fire services,” Davies said. Comedic illustrations show a bear taking a bath in a plastic swimming pool, and a play on the pun ‘throw the baby out with the bath water’ in a graphic that shows an over-sized baby yanking out a large plug holding back the water flowing out of a fire hydrant. “The large canvas created the perfect opportunity to create something that is both fun and educational,” Davies said. “The artwork was done as a smaller size, the product was blown up on a computer and printed as a wrap which makes it easier to clean and keep protected. “If it’s damaged it can be replaced without the artist having to do it again.” While the outside of the box is colourful and humorous, inside things are more complex. The box holds two pressure regulating valves and a strainer so that if any contaminants leak in, they’re sifted out before the water goes into the valves. The valves – and the utility box which holds them – have replaced an old asbestos concrete mix water main that broke last Christmas. The leak caused part

of the asphalt near the lights at South Alder and Rockland to crumble, creating a large hole in the road. The leak was the result of a hole in the water pipe caused by a faulty construction piece used by a contracted company. Water facts n B.C. residents use an average of 353 litres of water per day but most think they use less than 200 litres.

n Our domestic water consumption can increase up to 50 per cent in the summer months when people are watering their lawns and gardens. n Only 27 per cent of British Columbians say they don’t use their toilet

A city government expert who addressed Campbell River’s business community may be able to brag about having one of the longest shelf lives as a city manager, but he’s also been carrying around an unfortunate name. “My name really is Jerry Berry,” Berry, 56, began. “My grandfather’s name is Jerry Berry, my father’s name is Jerry Berry. My son’s name is Christopher. History can change and that’s part

of what I’ll be speaking about today.” Berry spoke to a crowd of about 50 people at the Chamber of Commerce’s membership lunch in the Royal Coachman’s Carriage Room Wednesday afternoon. Berry’s talk was lined up to coincide with Local Government Awareness Week in a joint effort between the Chamber and the City of Campbell River. Berry, a University of Victoria graduate, started his career in local government in the early 1980s as an administrative assistant for the City

In 1961, around 17 per cent of local taxation went to city governments, while in 2007 that went down drastically to nine per cent. Further, 50 years ago 74 per cent of a person’s income tax went to local taxes whereas in 2007, that figure decreased to 24 per cent. Berry said the bulk of our taxes go to the provincial and federal government, but it’s local government that has the most noticeable impact on our everyday lives as city government provides services such as:

water, sewer, garbage and recycling, parks and recreation, police and fire. “Local government is the one that’s doing things, on just eight cents of every dollar,” Berry said. He said the biggest problem is that local government is unsustainable. “The problem for cities is you can’t provide growth if you don’t support infrastructure but if you don’t support infrastructure you can’t accommodate growth,” Berry said. “You’re damned if you do, and you’re damned if you don’t.” Berry said the first step in fixing local government is identifying there is a problem. He said the next step is recognizing “that there’s never going to be enough money, ever. “The reality is there’s never going to be enough money and there’s infinite good things to do in the community and it’s about making tough choices,” Berry said. “You can’t say yes to everything but our political system is set up to reward those who say yes.” Berry said his solution to making local government sustainable is not more taxes, rather implementing consumption taxes – those who use the services pay, and the more you use, the more you pay. Those who live far from the city core, which makes it more expensive for the city to connect its sewer and water lines, for example, could be charged more in taxes. Berry said the reality is taxes will go up and the situation for local governments is likely to become harder and harder unless changes are made to a property tax system which has been in place since Queen Victoria was a little girl – roughly 200 years ago. “Cities are now more important and probably always were more important than the so-called senior governments in our lives,” Berry said. “They are the biggest employer in the private sector in B.C., larger than the province, larger than the feds. People don’t see that.”

A water pipe made with an asbestos mixture is being replaced in Willow Point. Council awarded the pipe project to Palladian Developments for $468,091 at a council meeting May 7. Jason Hartley, the city’s capital works manager, said the pipe needs to be taken out because there has been a high rate of water main breaks in the area. “The section of distribution water main on Dalton Road from Hilchey Road to 2317 Dalton Road is presently installed as a 150mm diameter asbestos concrete pipe system that has reached the end of its service life,” Hartley said in a report to council. “As a result, this section of water main has begun to experience a higher than normal rate of failure and has been identified as a high priority for renewal.” While the bulk of the work will be done by Palladian for $468,091, the total cost of the project is $673,928 which includes

Coun. Larry Samson took exception to the later item. “I see $4,700 for miscellaneous – city crews, line paint, advertising, there’s no lines on Dalton Road, there’s no line painting,” Samson said. “I guess my problem – and I think I’ve been fairly consistent on this million dollar project – (is) I felt it was unrealistic. When I was singled out in one of the local media as wanting to hire a whack of

$100,000 to hire a private company.” Council did, however, already approve $1.05 million in the 2013 budget for the Dalton water main renewal project. The difference, if it’s not used for unexpected surprises during

construction, will be returned to its original source. Substantial completion of the project, which will reduce emergency callouts for the city for that section of water main, is expected by August 30, 2013.

Natural resource officers out in force AlistAir tAylor

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

ATV operators, illegal camping and some forest act violations prompted natural resource officers to issue warnings and tickets over the long weekend near Campbell River. Natural resource officers from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations joined forces with Ministry of Environment conservation officers and the RCMP to patrol recreation sites in the Campbell River area over the weekend. “Most people were friendly and happy to see us,” said Mark Ross, a Natural Resource Officer with the Campbell River field unit at the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. “We got many thanks-yous from people.” The May long weekend is the unofficial

start of the summer camping season and forestry recreation campsites around Campbell Lake are popular with families. The officers wanted to ensure that all visitors enjoyed a safe and peaceful Victoria Day holiday. Officers conducted patrols of 26 campsites west of Campbell River and spoke with about 180 people over the course of the weekend. The vast majority of campers were co-operative and complying with safety regulations. How e v e r, n atu r a l resource officers issued

10 warnings to drivers of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and dirt bikes for not having the required insurance. “That was when our officers were doing roving patrols at the recreation sites,” Ross said. They issued another five warnings for various violations of the Forest and Range Practices Act. Those involved firewood cutting and noise curfew violations. Conservation officers and the RCMP also dealt with several ATV and boating safety concerns and violations of the Wildlife Act. While the joint patrols were underway at forest recreation sites, another group of natural resource officers was stationed on the south side of John Hart Lake. In 2001, the provincial government worked with the City of Campbell River to prohibit camping and motorized vehicle use in a large portion of the John Hart Lake

Community Watershed. Over the years, a great deal of effort has gone into protecting the quality of the city’s water supply. However, some campers, ATV operators and motorcyclists continue to ignore the restrictions. Over the Victoria Day long weekend, officers stepped up enforcement in the watershed to curb this trend and help protect the community’s drinking water supply. Officers stationed at John Hart Lake turned around 11 ATVs and dirt bikes and issued eight violation tickets and six warning tickets. They are currently investigating another eight offences related to the Forest and Range Practices Act. Ignoring camping or motorized vehicle restrictions can result in a fine of $115. Anyone causing environmental damage can be fined $575.

Standing up to the stigma Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Victoria Broker’s voice trembled as she courageously made a difficult admission to a packed city council chambers. “I am a person with mental illness,” she said in a clear and confident voice. “It’s been difficult for me to say in public but I’m beginning to feel that’s what I need to do and not feel ashamed about it anymore,” Broker added. It’s people like Broker who are trying to break down the barriers surrounding mental illness. Barbara Swanston, who lost her son Terry to suicide three years ago, has been trying to erase the stigma surrounding mental illness – the stigma which often prevents those struggling with their mental state from seeking help. “Ninety per cent of people who complete suicide have a diagnosable mental illness but the stigma often stops those most at risk from getting help,” Swanston said at a council meeting May 7. “Have you ever not told someone something because you’re afraid of what they might think? Sure, we’ve all done that so it isn’t surprising that someone who is depressed or thinking about killing themself often doesn’t ask for help.” Swanston’s purpose is to bring public awareness to

Our View

We are blessed with great water

Water, water everywhere and lots and lots to drink. So we drink it. And wash with it. And flush with it and many, many other things. We in Campbell River have the great fortune of having cold, clean water We say: Learn coming right out of our taps. We all need to stop and take a moment to not to take our appreciate what a blessing that is. There cold, clean water are many places in the world that don’t have access to clean water. There for granted are places in this country that don’t have water as good as the water in this province and, particularly, this community.

And yet, Campbell Riverites and British Columbians take their water for granted. The average B.C. resident uses 353 litres of water per day. But they think they use less than 200 litres. It was reported a few years ago that Campbell Riverites are among the highest users of water in the province. It’s not hard to see why. Our water source is a hundreds of kilometres-long river, lake and reservoir system that would be the envy of any large city. We also get a lot of rain. So, as residents, we see a lot of water each and every day. So, you could forgive us for thinking, “We’ve got lots of water.” But even though we have lots of water, it takes a lot

of public resources to protect it, treat it and deliver it. We conserve water not just to reduce consumption but also to ensure we don’t need to build more expensive infrastructure. Protecting our water will be an ever-increasing priority. Our water system is exposed to contamination because of it connection to heavily used waterways for everything from mines to motorboats. The city has taken pains in the last few years to install signage on the Campbell River water system pointing out to the public that the waterways connected to John Hart Lake – our water source – are susceptible to contamination from public negligence. So, don’t take your water for granted.

Letters

Mayor should be aware

I feel I have to respond to the two recent articles in your May 10 and 15 editions regarding our mayor and his response to the city’s 2012 Financial Report. He referred to the 2012 “surplus” of $3.7 million. He stated because of this “surplus,” there was no reason to raise taxes. The next article in the May 15 edition explained the situation as reported to council by the independent auditor, the city manager, and Coun. Adams. It very clearly points out that all dollars in the “surplus” are earmarked for projects approved but not yet completed or are in reserve funds that can only be used for specific programs or projects. The disturbing issue to me is that our mayor was not aware, or so indicated, of the situation. He, as our leader, should, in my opinion, be fully aware of all aspects of our budget. It is the most important document Council deals with.I was also very upset when he commented “the taxpayers of Campbell River do not care whether their taxes are used for capital, operations, or programs.” I totally disagree. I want to know where they go and I am sure the majority of citizens do. I sincerely hope for the remainder of this term of Council our Mayor shows more knowledge and leadership about all the important issues facing the citizens of Campbell River.

Our provincial parks are in a sorry state Alistair Taylor

Out On A Limb @AlstrT

editor@campbellrivermirror.com

One of the issues that I’m not willing to compromise on is our provincial parks. To me, they are one of the most precious public resources we have. Along with our national parks. In B.C., we’ve let our provincial park system deteroriate to an embarrassing condition. I recognize that money is tight these days but I think we can all quite easily imagine that there are other things being paid for by government that could be cut in favour of diverting those funds to our park system. According to the environmental organization Wilderness Committee, B.C. had 6.3 million hectares of parkland and 378 full time employees. In 2013, we have 13.5 million hectares of parkland and 190 full time employees. Over

double the parkland with almost half the staff. Remember park rangers? You probably haven’t seen one in a long time. They are there but they’re not patrolling B.C.’s parks much. That’s because there’s not that many of them. In fact, there’s only 12 in all of B.C. One thousand parks and 12 full time rangers. You can do whatever you want in a B.C. Park. There’s nobody going to stop you. Oh sure, we have campground hosts and volunteers but they’re not enforcement positions. Some of them barely enforce noise violations at campgrounds. This past weekend, local provincial “natural resource officers” patrolled the local recreation sites and found most people complying with sensible camp-

ing and forest use. But they also found lots of people not complying, ripping around the woods in ATVs and cutting firewood wherever they want. And these aren’t parks, they’re working forestland. Which, of course, is probably why they get some enforcement action. Protecting the forest resource for the forest industry. You can see the priority. Some of those same officers were “deputized” by the B.C. government to assist with park ranger duties, this in addition to their regular duties which, I would put to you, they probably don’t have enough staff for either. A scathing Auditor General’s report in 2010 found the government was not meeting its goal of conserving the ecological integrity of parks and protected

areas in B.C. Three years later, it certainly isn’t any better. Citizens are being called on to take action to look after our parks. Locally, we had the Friends of Strathcona Park restoring a trail in B.C.’s oldest park as a statement against use of the park by a private resort in the Bedwell Valley. The trail needed upgrading (I’ve been on it) but BC Parks had decommissioned it rather than spend money on it. The “Friends” action was as much a symbolic statement of public ownership as anything. Strathcona also has the Strathcona Wilderness Institute looking after the park and educating the public about it. But once again, volunteers are doing what government should be doing.


FRIDAY, MAY MAY 24, 24, 2013 2013 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || FRIDAY,

The issue is what the taxpayers want I have tried to step back and not interfere with what this council does, but I would like to bring up a few points regarding the Robron all weather field project. The question is not “do we want to build it or not” but rather, do the taxpayers of the city want it to be built at this time? We have come through tough times losing our mills, the jobs, and tax revenue. Taxes and user fees have increased. Services were cut and needed infrastructure projects delayed but they need doing now. We are facing huge infrastructure costs that will require financing. Councils have done a good job reducing our debt giving us room to

borrow with interest rates low. There is room to increase the debt and the question is now what projects to you undertake? We know we need a new intake system for our water supply and downtown services need replacing. Where does Robron Park upgrades fit into the list of priorities? For major projects where you have to borrow money, over a set amount, the Community Charter (laws governing municipal governments) requires council to obtain the assent of the electorate. That is the approval of your constituents, the people of our city. There are two ways to find that out. One is

through a referendum and the other is by way of counter petition. A referendum is a wellknown process that has been used many times by the city. The counter petition method is where you advertise what you want to do and if more than 10 per cent of the registered taxpayers sign the petition then the matter has to go to a referendum or is not done. The intent of the legislation is to provide for open, accountable, transparent government and to ensure council follows the direction of the people who elected them. It is a check and balance to ensure local tax dollars are spent wisely and with the approval of the taxpayer.

I was disappointed to read in the paper that council is considering a financing scheme designed to find a way around the rules. This would take away our right to direct council to do what “we the taxpayers” want done. We trust you to spend our tax dollars within limits set by the provincial legislation. We did not give you a blank cheque to run the city. It is no different from the limits council sets for expenditures by staff. You certainly don’t like it if staff don’t adhere to the rules. If you want to exceed those limits you have to ask the taxpayer if it is okay. Don’t be afraid of the taxpayer, just ask the

question and accept the answer. As I often say, “If it is the right thing to do, it will stand the test of public scrutiny.” Charlie Cornfield, former Mayor, Councillor and continuing taxpayer P.S. Purpose of the parks tax: It is equally offensive to try and subvert the legislation by taxing us now and in previous years by squirreling away excess tax dollars into special accounts for projects not approved by the taxpayers. If you have enough money hidden away to pay the $4 million (not sure how much it is estimated to cost now) or to do the project without borrowing then we have been over taxed.

‘It is like an oasis in my busy life’ The wrap-around section called Report on the Community highlight the Integrated Health Ne t work ( I H N ) at Campbell River Hospital.   Both my husband and I have used the IHN since

what they might find on the beach. Students in Norbert Ntalintumire’s class separated the trash into distinct categories in order to get a better idea of exactly what is polluting our waters. More than 1,000 pieces of trash were found along the 1.3 kilometres of shoreline walked by the students. Fourteen pieces were cloth, 30 were metal, 36 were glass, 102 were paper, 140 were styrofoam and 640 were plastic.

BC Ferries has submitted an application under Section 55 of the Coastal Ferry Act seeking the commissioner’s approval of the major capital expenditure necessary to acquire three new vessels to replace the Queen of Burnaby and the Queen of Nanaimo both of which are near the end of their service lives and are scheduled for retirement in fiscal 2017. Under Section 55 of the Act, the commissioner may approve a major capital expenditure if the proposed expenditure is reasonable, prudent, and consistent with the current Coastal Ferry Services Contract, and any long term capital plan established by the ferry operator.

Included in the deficit is a $1.1 million tax shortfall carried over from 2011, plus a $1.3 million increase in costs related to That decision results in a conloss tract commitments and inflationof $1.8 million in tax revenue for ary increases, said Laura Ciarniello, the city’s general manager of corporate services. If the city were to maintain the current level of services it provides to citizens, the tax rate would have to increase by 24 per cent in order to make up the $3.6 million. The loss of $1.8 million from Catalyst alone, equates to a 12 per cent residential tax increase. To put that into perspective, Ciarniello said a one per cent residential tax increase would bring in $150,000 in revenue for the city. That one per cent increase would mean roughly $12 more per year in property taxes for the average homeowner. The city’s operating budget is approximately $37 million which Continued on A3

Success by 6 celebrates its own success at 10

R

esearch has shown that the first six years of life lay the foundation for a person’s life. A unique provincial partnership that bases its work on this principle is now celebrating its 10th anniversary. Success by 6 helps to ensure that children ages 0-6 develop the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical skills they need as they enter school. This groundbreaking partnership, bringing together the public, the not-for-profit and the business sectors came together with a vision that it takes a whole community to support families with children under six years of age. Communities understand the needs of their young families and are best positioned to respond to those needs. “As the Success By 6 Coordinator for the region from mid 2005 through mid 2008, my most treasured memory is having worked with so many wonderful people in the community.  Goals were achieved because of their unwavering commitment to young children’s wellbeing and extraordinary generosity in contributing their time, knowledge, ideas and talents,” says Brenda Wagman as she reflects back on her time as coordinator. Here in Campbell River and surround-

ing area, some of the programs and projects Success By 6 supports are Friday Family gym at the Sportsplex, Children’s Health Fair, Books for Babies, Campbell River Family Network website, free family swims, National Child Day, family coordinator on Cortes, and parent workshops on Quadra. Over the years many other projects have been supported, such as the Milestone Interactive Kits and Emergency Food Cupboard at Campbell River Family Services. In British Columbia, Success By 6 was born on May 21, 2003 when the United Way of the Lower Mainland, The Savings and Credit Unions of BC and the BC Government through the Ministry of Children & Family Development signed on to the Early Childhood Development Provincial Partnership. Over the past 10 years, Success By 6 has built a network of Early Years community coalitions across BC that involve local credit unions, local United Ways and government representatives along with many diverse stakeholders including parents, grandparents, educators, health professionals, local governments, Aboriginal leaders, children’s librarians, recreation coordinators and many more. Col-

lectively they plan how their community’s children can best be supported. In our community, “Over the past decade Success By 6 has worked tirelessly to build a vibrant community for children in their early years. With only one coordinator and a volunteer board, this organization advocates for young children and provides outreach at multiple events including the Children’s Health Fair,  National Child’s Day, and Canada Day-just  to name a few.  At the same time, its members have shaped our city and our schools by placing early years advocates on city committees and the School District 72 Board of Trustees.  The accomplishments of Success By 6 reflect both how deeply the Campbell River community cares about its youngest citizens as well as the unwavering dedication of the organization itself,” said Lisa Scalapino,  School  District 72 School Psychologist and former coordinator of Understanding the Early Years Today Success by 6 is a network of over 120 Early Childhood Coalitions in BC that support over 550 communities.

These kittens’ infected eyes were treated by the Quadra Cat Rescue group last fall. At the time, the surgery drained the funds of the organization which exists to try and eliminate feral or unwanted cats on both Quadra and Read islands.

Group tackles islands’ feral cats Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

olunteers are working to rid Quadra and Read islands of any unwanted cats. The Unwanted Cat Control Project aims to reduce, and eventually eliminate, the problem of homeless cats, says Valerie van Veen of Quadra Cat Rescue. “Both islands have significant feral cat populations, the result of early settlement and historic attitudes,” van Veen said. “As our islands become increasingly populated, however, the problem of feral cats which have proven impacts on birds and other small wildlife, and are disease and pest vectors, has become much more urgent.” The organization, which spends $45,000 a year on vet bills, communications and operations, recently received a $2,000 grant-in-aid from the Strathcona Regional District to help with its

expenses. Van Veen says in the four years since Quadra Cat Rescue (formerly Quadra Feral Cat Group) was established, volunteers have made “a significant difference in reducing and controlling the number of unwanted cats on Quadra through the spay/neuter programs aimed at feral cats and cats owned by low-income residents of both islands.” The organization works closely with two veterinary clinics in Campbell River to trap, collect and transport feral and domestic, low-income family cats to the clinics nearly once a week. “The cats receive primary medical care while being fixed, thus helping to control the spread of disease, fleas and worms, as well as the number of unwanted cats,” van Veen says. The Unwanted Cat Control Project aims to trap, neuter or spay and then release cats which belong to feral cat colonies on the islands and then monitor those colonies and provide food

to reduce the need for the cats to feed on other wildlife. Through the project, volunteers also hope to spread the word about the spay/neuter program for low-income families with pets and help those families arrange vet appointments and transportation for spaying and neutering. Quadra Cat Rescue has neutered/spayed almost 300 cats since the group was formed in 2009. Van Veen said the organization has been recognized by the BC SPCA as one of the most organized and effective feral cat control programs in the province and has received a $7,500 grant from the SPCA in recognition of its activities. For more information, to volunteer, adopt an already-fixed cat, or make a donation (charitable tax receipts available), contact the Quadra Cat Rescue by phone, 250-285-CATS (2287) or by e-mail, quadracatrescue@ yahoo.com or visit the website, www.quadracats.com

neering and took my MBA,” says Black. “I ended up as a �inancial analyst for the Toronto Star for a couple of years and started to like the (newspaper) business. I particularly liked the weeklies.” When his father told him that the Tribune was being sold, Black asked if he could buy it. “He just laughed and said, ‘Why do you think I told you?’” recalls Black fondly. The young Black family moved to Williams Lake “for a couple of years” but “fell in love with small town living” and stayed for a decade. While there Black learned the business at the grassroots level. “I learned a lot about the weekly newspaper business,” says Black. “When somebody left, whether it was an editor or a compositor or a sales rep or a circulation manager or… I ended up doing the job until we found a replacement. It really helped me the rest of my career because I actually know what it takes to do the job.” And from Williams Lake, Black began to expand his career and business. In 1980 he purchased the Ashcroft Journal (now the Ashcroft Cache Creek Journal). Today David Black lives in Victoria and Black Press includes more than 190 publications, in B.C., the Prairies, Washington State and a daily in both Hawaii and Akron, Ohio. So why has Black Press been so successful? “I understand business, I have a head for business. But the trick is people. If you can surround yourself with people who are really good, you will succeed,” explains Black. “We have really good staff.” And that is part of the reason why community newspapers aren’t as threatened by the internet, say Black. “We are putting out as good a local paper as we can afford editorially. It shows in the numerous awards we receive every year and our readership.” says Black. “I think weeklies will continue very much the same, I don’t see

Young pianist gets a boost T

owa Stewart is the winner of this year’s $2000 Virginia Graczak Music Scholarship, Piano. Stewart is a student at Ecole Puntledge Park in Courtenay. The Virginia Graczak Music Scholarship (VGMS), and the related Margaret Gracza Fine Art Award, were founded in 2001 by Campbell River retirees Susie and Michael Moscovich.  Both initiatives were named after cherished women in Moscovich’s life – the music scholarship in honour of her high school piano teacher, Virginia Graczak; the Fine Art Award in honour of Moscovich’s stepmother, Margaret Gracza.  North Island College’s Fine Art department administrates the latter; the former is a more personal and lav-

held in the Moscovich’s home. Though the “black tie” bit is optional, the scrumptious dinner, cocktails, and accompanying live concert make this a night to truly remember.  For the past 10 years, the Moscoviches have hosted these galas on adjacent Friday and Saturday nights. Fifty ticketholders per night (who purchase a ticket for $75) are treated to a concert at which the winners of the piano and voice competition from the previous year perform. To top it off, a local artist is featured each year. He or she donates an original work of art – one that a lucky ticketholder wins in the Saturday night draw. Some previous artists have included: Marilyn Timms, Lynda Jamison, Courtenay Powell, Betty Boyle, Ron Bridge, Perrin Sparks, Christina

Some previous winners include: Nicole Taylor (2003 piano), Jacqueline Block (2005 voice), Graeme Roset (2006 piano), Kevin Ngo (2008 piano), Mary Jo Wood (2008 voice), Kolya Kowalchuk (2009 piano), Carter Johnson (2010 piano), Matthew Blackburn (2011 piano), and Ryan Krell (2012 piano).  The adjudications take place in May at the Moscovich home. The applicants are vetted by the CR Friends of Music, who administer the funds.  The scholarship, both piano and voice, is intended to encourage local talent, as well as a love for, and an interest in, music.

THANK YOU!

Twenty five volunteers hit the streets bright and early on Sunday, May 5th to help with the annual Downtown Spring Cleanup. Weeds were scraped and pulled, garbage was picked up and sidewalks were swept and power washed. Volunteers enjoyed muffins, carrot cake, popcorn, beverages and last but not least a massage.

I went to the Manual of Standard Traffic Signs and Pavement Markings for British Columbia. Surely I would find everything there. I couldn’t, so I e-mailed the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and asked. The lady that responded pointed me to the Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) who she advised were responsible for setting the standards. TAC’s documentation is titled Bikeway Traffic Control Guidelines for Canada and must be purchased. Being resourceful (and thrifty) I searched the title on the internet instead. I was able to find a number of useful links that are listed with this article on the DriveSmartBC web site. So, if you are curious about what those “new” signs and pavement markings require you to do as either a driver or a cyclist, my best advice at this point is to check out the City of Vancouver’s web site. It seems to be the most comprehensive of the free resources. I can summarize for you, keep your lane discipline, watch out for each other and exercise courtesy when you meet. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience. To comment or learn more, please visit www. drivesmartbc.ca.

A reader from Vancouver asked me where the rules came from for bicycle lanes and signs as they could not be found in the provincial driving manual, Learn to Drive Smart. Included in the e-mail was a link to the City of Vancouver’s web site which showed a collection of signs and markings that are now in use on the city streets there. I didn’t think that this was going to be a tough question!

Anthony Matt REGNER (Tony) April 27, 1945 May 11, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our brother Tony who passed away May 11, 2013 at the age of 69. Tony was an awesome brother, father, granddad and uncle. He is survived by his siblings Joe, Loretta, Brenda, Rose, Darrell & Cindy. He will be sadly missed by his children Terry, Dayna & Anton plus many nephews and nieces and friends. Tony’s love for his dogs and the outdoors was never ending. He had a Heart of Gold and was a hard worker for many years right up till this past year. He had a short battle with cancer. We Love You Brother! I would also like to say a special thank you to Verne and Barb for all the wonderful things you did for Tony. There will be a gathering at a later date.

Ernest (Ernie) Walker Johnson September 23,1948 April 27, 2013

:PVS$PNNVOJUZ  :PVS$MBTTJmFET 

With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved Ernie, husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend.  Predeceased by his father Robert, in 1975, and his mother Joyce, in 2011, he is survived by his wife Bonnie, son Robert (Lisa), grandchildren Adam and Lindsey, son Steven (Earla), brothers; Bruce, Robert & Dave (Liz), sister Gail (Al) Folstrom, nieces, nephews and many friends.  Still so full of life and looking forward to the warmer spring days ahead, Ernie left all of us too soon.  He passed away at his home early Saturday morning on April 27th.  With a strong, easy, gentle confidence, Ernie was very friendly to all he met, and always had a smart remark to make you smile.   He loved the innocence and sincerity in children, and told his wife he will miss seeing his small grandchildren grow up.  After 4-1/2 long years of a slow deteriorating lung disease, Ernie still looked forward to each day, and on his last Friday, he still asked his wife “What have we got planned for the weekend Honey?â€?  Now free from his silent struggle, Ernie has begun his next adventure, where he’s waiting for us to tell his stories to, about what he’s been up to since he left us.  Ernie was unique in every way and will always remain, UNFORGETTABLE‌‌‌‌‌..‌Till then Ernie, we love you and miss you. Please join the family for his Celebration of Life on Saturday, June 1st, 2013 at 1:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall on 11th  Avenue.  Ernie was laid to rest by his family on May 2, 2013 at the Elk Falls Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, Ernie would have appreciated donations be made to the CR SPCA in his memory, as he loved dogs and had rescued many from the shelter over the years.

Born and raised in Cranbrook, BC, Jack later served in WW II as an army Lieutenant where he met Elsie at the Officers Mess of a Casualty Centre at Gordon Head, Victoria. It was love at first sight and lasted 65 years until the passing of Elsie in 2010. They moved to Campbell River in 1949 where Jack practiced law until he was appointed as a judge in the Provincial Court of BC in the early 70s, forcing a move to Nanaimo. They returned to Campbell River in 2004. Jack was active in Rotary, Kinsmen, K40 and the Masonic Lodge where he served as District Deputy Grand Master and attained over 60 years of membership.

Campbell River athletes set Island records

Campbell River was well represented at the Vancouver Island High School Track and Field Championships held last Wednesday and Thursday in Victoria. Carihi’s Brendan Hoff set two new Bantam Boys Island records, running the 1500 m in 4:11.43 and the 3000 m in 9:11.40. The previous records were 4:21.59 set in 1988 and 9:32.95 set in 1992. Timberline’s Seever Rondquist set a new record in the Bantam Boys Javelin with a throw of 52.12m. The old record was 50.40m set in 2008. Athletes from all five middle and high schools qualified by competing at the North Island Meet in Powell River earlier this month. Southgate sent one athlete, Phoenix sent two, Carihi sent eight, Timberline sent six, and Campbell River Christian School (CRCS) sent 24 athletes to the Islands Meet.

Bantams step up to A division, handle themselves well On the Victoria Day long weekend, the Campbell River Booster Juice Bantam A Ravens travelled to New Westminster for the Hyack Invitational lacrosse tournament.  Perhaps the tournament organizers were caught off-guard by the Ravens recent promotion from B to A division but for whatever reason, they scheduled three of the four round-robin games

against Island teams. The first game was Friday night against Juan de Fuca 2 (JDF2). Several players were with the Southgate band, enjoying a California adventure at one of the happiest places on Earth, so two players were called up from the Bantam C team.  Matthew Leard played in every game while Kari Martynyk was able to join the team for two

Bantams: Ravens in penalty trouble against Peninsula ball quickly up the floor and into Mason Osterhout-Code’s basket.  He delivered the mail and fired the ball into the back of the net. Ian Hall, Doney and Turko added to the scoring; the final score was 7-5 for the Ravens. Aidan Probyn and Quinn Pedersen were running the floor well, both playing strong on offence and defence.  Game awards for most valuable player (MVP) went to McLean and work horse (WH) was Doney. The second game was Saturday morning

against Peninsula Warriors.  The Ravens seemed to start down the slippery slope of taking ill-advised penalties. Peninsula did their best to teach the Ravens that is not a wise strategy at any level of competitive sports. The Ravens played hard but ran into a hot goalie and weren’t able to score until Peninsula had already jumped out to a 0-5 lead by the middle of the second period.  Quin Nelson fired a pass to Nolan Fair as he was cutting and Fair put the ball into

the low corner to crack the goose-egg.  Nelson scored shortly before the end of the second to make it 2-5.  Each team scored once in the third as Gavin Hope rippled the twine for the Ravens; final score 3-6 for Peninsula. MVP was Hope, WH was Nelson. The third game was Saturday af ter no on against Nanaimo Timbermen.  Nanaimo was seeking to avenge their loss to the Ravens the previous weekend.  The y op ene d t he scoring, executing a

two-on-none to perfection.  Nanaimo used their team speed to extend the lead to 0-3 before Turko finished a three-way passing play from Fair and Osterhout-Code. The Ravens were caught doing a slow jog back on defence as Nanaimo split the Ravens like a maul going through a chunk of dry cedar and wired the ball glove side, low corner. They scored another to lead 1-5 at the end of the first period.  Liam Rivett closed the gap with a beauty shot just inside the post as the

second period ended 2-7 for Nanaimo. The Ravens won the third period 5-3 to bring the final score 7-10 for Nanaimo. Nelson and Leard added singles while Fair closed the game with a hattrick.  Game MVP was Fair; WH was OsterhoutCode. Knowing they were out of contention for the medal round didn’t dampen the Ravens’ spirit in their fourth game against Coquitlam Adanacs.  The Adanacs had two shut-outs in their first three games so the Ravens’ focus was strong defence and running their motion offence. The game started with teams trading good chances but shooters were denied by opposing goalies. Adanacs got on the scoreboard with a shot that hit the crossbar and landed behind McLean with Tiger Woods-like backspin to creep across the goal line. They added a power-play goal while keeping the Ravens scoreless in the first period; 0-2.  Fair put the Ravens on the board after they killed off a double-minor penalty. Osterhout-Code passed to Fair on a cut through the house and he wired it to tie the score at 2. The parade to the penalty box continued with another doubleminor and the Adanacs put another power-play goal on the board.  The second period ended 2-3 for the Adanacs. They added two even

strength goals before putting one into the emptynet with 25 seconds left to win2-6.  Shots on goal were 30 for the Ravens and 43 for the Adanacs.  Game MVP was Rivett; WH was Fair. Head coach Todd Fair was proud of the team effort, especially considering a relatively short bench.  “Our effort was great in each game.  We truly never gave up, we simply ran out of time on the clock in a couple of games.  Matthew and Kari played very good lacrosse at this tournament.  They were understandably a little nervous but not intimidated coming up from C division and handled the much faster pace quite well.  Overall, we need to play with a bit more discipline and stay out of the penalty box.  It’s easy to get caught up in the emotion of the game and want to get even. If we can remember that our focus is to ‘get even by beating them on the scoreboard, we will have more team success.  “Our team leaders are stepping up and leading by example. We need to continue to run the floor at both ends and make good line changes...We are learning what it takes to compete in the A division level.” The Bantam A Ravens travel to Peninsula on Saturday May 25 then return home to play Saanich Tigers on Sunday May 26 at 1:30 p.m.

ing chances. Picks were being set at both ends of the floor, defenders ensured there were no clear paths through the middle of the house.  Will McLean denied a JDF2 breakaway which helped to turn the tide in the Ravens’ favour. Bryce Turko ensured Old Moe (last name Mentum) was wearing Ravens colours shortly after that as he buried the ball in the back of the net on a breakaway to tie the score at 3.  Great ball movement, including a series of midrange passes, brought the

Answer: Fluoride has long been a topic of debate and although fluoride use has its critics, the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention consider the introduction of fluoride to improve oral health one of the top 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century. Dr. Kevin Lathangue Fluoride has a very unique property in that it can replace Calcium in our enamel. So when our teeth are exposed to acid (which is how decay starts) the acid leaches (pulls) calcium out of our enamel thereby weakening our teeth. Fluoride, when available, replaces the calcium in our enamel and makes our teeth more resistant to acid. So, in essence, fluoride makes our teeth stronger because acid from bacteria won’t be as effective at decaying our teeth. It’s still very important to brush and floss because, even with fluoride replacing our calcium, our teeth are still susceptible to decay. So 2-3 minutes twice a day for brushing and flossing every day is still the Canadian Dental Association recommendation.
