An anticipatory injunction sought by the City of Nanaimo to prevent citizens from potentially delaying work to remove two dams at Colliery Dam Park will have to wait until the week of July 2 for a decision. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Douglas Thompson agreed that the target of the injunction, Dave Cutts, who promised civil disobedience in an effort to save the dams, needs more time to raise money and secure and brief counsel on the subject. The city filed the injunction June 3, but Cutts said he wasn’t served until the evening of June 4, giving him just three days to respond. “We’re not prepared to argue this case today, we need two more weeks,” Cutts said. “My group has done nothing illegal. All we’ve done is meet Sundays for social gatherings at the park. In fact, on Sunday (June 9), I was not able to get to the park so it was in my backyard.” If an injunction is approved in early July, it would put those who do gather and delay dam deconstruction in contempt of court, resulting in a possible court date and trial for each person arrested. If an injunction is not approved, the city can choose how it wants to approach remov-

ing people. It can do nothing, invoke bylaw infractions and issue $150 tickets, or work with RCMP to arrest people. The anticipatory injunction was sought based on Cutts’s remarks in local media promising civil disobedience. He repeated that intention Monday, saying he had “dozens of people prepared to take Level 1 or Level 2 action,” meaning people willing to participate in an illegal gathering. Don Howieson, the city’s lawyer, said he felt Cutts’s public comments on civil disobedience should be enough to support the injunction since the window to remove the dams – they must be removed in the summer when there is low water flow – is small. Another group also filed an application for the hearing in an effort to protect citizens not associated with Cutts’s group. Valentine Stafford, a member of the Colliery Dam Park Preservation Society, which has been working since October to protect the dams, filed an application to protect “Jane and John Does” from being affected by the injunction. “The point of this application is, where no unidentified person has done anything wrong, it’s not proper that there be a court order that names John and Jane Doe,” said Timothy Huntsman, Stafford’s lawyer. Cutts, representing a group called Dam Direct Action Group, said he will have legal counsel engaged by the next hearing date. He added Monday’s decision to stay the decision was a small victory. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Parksville-Qualicum MLA Michelle Stilwell is new to the political scene, but she already has an important role to play. Premier Christy Clark unveiled her new cabinet Friday and Stilwell has been named parliamentary secretary to the minister of health for healthy living, one of 14 MLAs named as parliamentary secretaries. She will use her experience as a high-performance athlete to work with medical professionals and make recommendations to the minister on how government can

support healthy living and preventative health measures to keep B.C. residents healthy and out of hospital. “It’s a wonderful fit for me,” said Stilwell, a Paralympic champion in track and basketball events in 2000, 2008 and most recently at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London. “I just feel honoured and privileged that I’ve been given this opportunity.” In her new role, she plans to focus on two key areas. The first is getting children and youth more active and encouraging them to make better lifestyle choices, such as steering away from fast foods and

processed foods. “Finding those passions that allow them to want to be healthy and active, getting them engaged in the process,” said Stilwell, adding that modern technology has led to more time in front of screens for youth. She also plans to focus on how to encourage activity and healthy living among seniors and how to enable this segment of the population to live longer and happier at home. “Part of that is growing community and creating bonds in communities so seniors have those networks in time of need,” said Stilwell.

Nanaimo NDP MLA Leonard Krog said he’s delighted to see government taking the issue of personal health and healthy living seriously, but he is skeptical the talk and the appointment will be followed up with action. He said the government has also announced a “core review,” intended to identify savings and efficiencies, which usually means cuts – not expansion of programs. “It’s a good concept, but will there be anything to follow from any recommendations she might make?” said Krog. “I guess at this point, it’s a wait-and-see attitude.”

NEWS

Colliery Dam Update MIDDLE AND LOWER DAMS REMOVAL AND REPLACEMENT PROCESS The following information is being provided by the City of Nanaimo on the topic of the Colliery Dams. Residents and visitors wishing to learn more are encouraged to visit the City’s website at www.nanaimo.ca/goto/dams or email us at collierydams@nanaimo.ca What is the current status of the Colliery Dams? At its May 13, 2013 meeting, City Council passed a motion that staff proceed with the immediate removal of the Lower and Middle Colliery Dams and take the necessary steps to build replacements for both dams while also preparing the lower dam for future hydro generation. The Lower and Middle Colliery Dams are owned by the City of Nanaimo and were constructed in 1911. Engineering studies have concluded that the dams do not meet current dam safety standards. Under the Water Act, the Province has the authority and responsibility to order dam owners, in this case the City of Nanaimo, to immediately address hazardous conditions. The Dam Safety Section of the Water Management Branch, Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, has informed the City that the Province has assigned the Lower and Middle Colliery Dams its highest classification level – extreme risk – which requires that corrective action be taken. They stated that the dams, in their current condition, are a public safety hazard. The Dam Safety Section accepts Council’s decision to mitigate the hazard by draining the reservoirs and removing the dams in 2013. What is the process for removing the dams? Removal of the Lower and Middle Colliery Dams will take place in accordance with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans fish protection requirements. The first step involves a temporary diversion of the Chase River followed by draining both reservoirs, which is expected to take place in July. An environmental management plan, including erosion and sediment control, has been prepared. Concrete and rock material will be used to stabilize the river channel along the empty reservoirs. This step is required in order to prevent the siltation of the Chase River until the planned replacement of the dams, targeted for the summer of 2014, is completed. All in-stream work related to dam removal must be completed by late fall. Work outside of the river bed will continue until early winter. The process of removing the dams involves the use of heavy construction equipment and will include hauling material offsite. This work is planned for August. Describe the process for replacing the dams The process of designing and replacing the dams will start this summer with the selection of a qualified engineering consultant using an advertised request for proposals process. Additional topographic, geotechnical, geological and any other investigations required by other levels of government will also be conducted. And finally, the conceptual level cost estimates will be further developed following which a financing strategy for the project (based on either short-term or long-term borrowing) will be prepared. Prior to starting construction, the City will commence dialogue with Snuneymuxw First Nation, residents and stakeholders and obtain all necessary approvals to ensure the new dams meet the standards for an extreme classification. Users of Colliery Dam Park are advised that sections of walking pathways and trails will be closed with marked signs during the removal and replacement of the dams. Similarly, construction within the Park will also require the installation of fencing around work areas. What environmental precautions are being taken? In the past the Lower and Middle Colliery Dam reservoirs were annually stocked with rainbow trout. Fishing in both reservoirs is encouraged up until the time the removal of the dams begins. Prior to the Lower and Middle Colliery Dam reservoirs being drained, any remaining stocked trout will be relocated to the Upper Colliery Dam Reservoir which will remain stocked with fish and available for fishing. In addition to moving trout, all other aquatic or semi-aquatic amphibians and reptiles that require relocating to a safe water body will be transported to the Upper Reservoir. A pre-construction sweep for terrestrial amphibians and reptiles will take place prior to the arrival of heavy equipment. Any terrestrial amphibians and reptiles that require relocation will be transported to safe habitat next to Harewood Creek. As a further measure of environmental mitigation, Vancouver Island University Fisheries and Aquaculture Program will be engaged to collect 2,000 Coho salmon fry, which is about 10% of the estimated population in the Chase River. VIU will maintain the fry in their hatchery on the upper Chase River. Tell me about the land surrounding Colliery Dam Park In addition to the work taking place in Colliery Dam Park, new recreational opportunities for City owned land located on the west side of the Nanaimo Parkway along Nanaimo Lakes Road are being explored. One example includes the use of the soon to be decommissioned open air reservoir. This reservoir will no longer be used for the City’s water supply system when the new water treatment plant begins operations in the spring of 2015, making it an ideal City owned asset to expand recreation amenities. What are some of the key timelines for this project? q June - staff will release the tender for the removal of both dams q July – reservoir draining is planned to begin in accordance with summer low water flow rates and Department of Fisheries and Oceans fish protection requirements q August – dam removal is planned to start q Summer 2013 through Spring 2014 - commence the design and approval process to build replacement dams q Summer 2014 – planned construction targeted for new dams For more information on the Colliery Dams, please visit the City’s website at www.nanaimo.ca/goto/dams or email collierydams@nanaimo.ca

Proudly celebrating our 20th Year!

Each ride is highly strenuous and lasts about 2.5 hours to build stamina on hills or build cardio endurance with speed. Saturdays are long endurance rides of up to 100 kilometres designed to get the cyclists accustomed to covering long distances and spending hours in the saddle. “I biked before, but nothing to the extent of what we bike now,” Dmytar said. “Hill day is the hardest for me. I’m not very great at hills, but as the training goes on, obviously you get stronger – your legs get stronger – and you’re not as psyched out when you see that really long, steep hill.” Fundraising will be less of a problem, Dmytar hopes, since she’ll be getting a lot of support from the Comox Valley detachment as well as Nanaimo. She also lives in Ladysmith, a town that always throws a huge amount of support behind riders, especially if they live in the area. Dmytar has set her fundraising goal, tentatively at $20,000, but says the ride is the least she can do to support B.C. Children’s Hosptial. “The more money we raise through Tour de Rock, the more chance these kids have and the better the treatments that will come out,” Dmytar said. “The tour is my way of giving back to B.C. Children’s, giving back to the people who work there and giving back to the pharmaceutical companies that make these drugs and help our kids get better. I’m so thankful today that Griffyn is with us.”

EDITORIAL

Courts curtail volunteerism

One has to wonder when B.C. Court of Appeal judges volunteered in their community If they did, they would understand there is an extremely short supply of individuals who willingly give up their own time to help organizations around them. It’s increasingly difficult to get people to lend a hand as life seems to get busier. And that means those who rely on the organizations pay the price. So what does the B.C. Court of Appeal do? It made it more difficult for groups to attract volunteers by declaring that elected officials are in conflict of interest when participating in a nonprofit society that receives civic funding. In Enderby B.C., there has already been one casualty a city councillor resigned from his role with the chamber of commerce. That’s unfortunate as the councillor brought a wealth of business and community experience to the chamber. And, in turn, could provide knowledge about the chamber’s inner workings to his council colleagues. Many communities, and particularly small ones, don’t have the luxury of differentiating between people who sit on municipal council or regional district and those who volunteer with a service agency or business group. Often multiple hats are worn. Conflict of interest can occur, but there is provincial legislation that clearly outlines the guidelines. And the simple solution is for a politician not to be involved in the discussion on a group they belong to, particularly if that organization receives public funding. The provincial government needs to review the court ruling and make changes to legislation to ensure conflicts are avoided while allowing volunteerism to continue. The Nanaimo News Bulletin is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder. If talking with the editor or publisher does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, you may contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2R2. For information, phone 888-687-2213 or go to www.bcpresscouncil.org

While I haven’t lost any weight so far, getting out and exercising has had other benefits such as increasing my lung capacity and endurance. I feel healthier. During my neighbourhood and lunch hour jaunts I’ve also discovered several local parks that I don’t think I would have seen otherwise. I always go for walks at Neck Point and Pipers Lagoon Park, but some of the smaller parks I never visited until I decided to travel on foot instead of by car. There is nothing like discovering a really awesome park for the first time. And this city has some real hidden gems. Lunchtime jaunts have taken me to Barney Moriez Park, Beach Estates Park and the Chinese Memorial Garden on Stewart Avenue. I never knew the Beach Estates Park existed until I heard a co-worker talk about it one day at the office. I thought I would go check it out. The entrance is right behind the Brooks Landing shopping centre.

Celebrate Nanaimo’s entire history To the Editor,

Re: No room for ‘Empire’ in today’s society, Letters, June 8. My grandparents on both sides immigrated to Nanaimo in 1906 despite what Gord Fuller refer to as a short history. They came to a new land with an existing population and built a new society of tolerance. They also came to build a better life for themselves and others through hard work and prosperity grew from it. The early people in Nanaimo may of been divided by culture, but in my experience they were not racist. None of the children I new in Nanaimo were restricted from enjoying the company of other cultures such as First Nations, Chinese, Italian and many other. We visited each others homes, went to school together, played sports together and we enjoy

friendships with many cultures today. With the many generations, cultural lines have blurred and blended. There are marriages across many of these cultures now including First Nations and this has been the case for many years. When Empire Days rolls around, my thoughts go to my grandfather and his relatives who fought in the First World War and the sacrifice they made for this society. My father’s time overseas in the Second World War was spent first in the Royal Air Force and then the Royal Canadian Air Force. Do people not think they diminish our multicultural society as it has been developed today by denying the history that brought us to this point? Celebrate it. Promote the good qualities, continue to educate our children.

And enjoy the parade.

Meaning of ‘Empire’ can be redefined To the Editor,

Re: No room for ‘Empire’ in today’s society, Letters, June 8. I disagree with the removal of the word ‘Empire’ in the Nanaimo May long weekend celebrations. Empire Days is about unification and the celebration of freedoms within the empire. The written history of Empire Days celebrations in Nanaimo states all types of sporting activity and celebration by all races and nationalities. The word ‘Empire’ means many different things depending on the era. We can’t erase history, but we can redefine of our own ‘empire.’ One that includes some ideas that Gord Fuller writes about. Some people in the com-

munity want to change the meaning of Empire Days and also paint it with a different brush using only a tone of grey history. Using words like racism in the same sentence as Empire Days could be true if the Empire had failed to protect itself in the First and Second World Wars. The loss of either war could have resulted in many of us not existing today or maybe marching to a different tune under a racist dictator. Regardless, my family and many First Nations have taken up arms to protect this land under the direction of the Empire. We can all be glad that the Empire did maintain the Commonwealth as a place of freedom. The diversity of nationalities that populate Nanaimo is proof we can all live together on one planet without war.

Conference centre hits right note with guests To the Editor,

I took part in the B.C. Choral Federation Chorfest – a three-day choral festival last month open to singers from around the province and hosted by Nanaimo Sings. The singers ranged in age from children to seniors who travelled from around the province to take part in the workshops, rehearsals and festivities in our city. The first two days were held at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre and the final day at the Port Theatre. Throughout the weekend I heard frequent comments from out-of-town guests about the fabulous facilities at the conference centre. People were impressed with the meeting/rehearsal rooms, with the spaciousness of the facility, the excellent meals and the easy parking. They were also pleased to be able to access downtown just outside the doors of the centre and many took advantage of free

It’s too bad city council did not walk with us, for the support we got from the public was truly amazing. We had children telling us how important the dams were to them and how much they wanted it saved. We had many young people from the youth centre on Bastion Street asking what they could do to save the dams. We had at least 75 to 80 per cent support from all ages. They understand the importance of the Colliery dams to the people of Nanaimo. The majority of the people could not understand how any councillor who cared for Nanaimo could ever think of voting not to build the new dams as the old ones are removed. We need the five councillors who voted to destroy the dams to get out and listen to the people.

AND ENTERTAINMENT

It’s not so much we are creating comedy. We are just liberating it.

Silent

singers

BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

W

ith their guns drawn, two masked men board a train. The two: known as Clint and Billy ‘Bones’ Ford, force the conductor to open the railway company’s safe and then escape with their payload on horseback. It’s a scene from the silent film The Brothers Ford: Safe Travels created by Keith Picot and Brandon Issak. It’s one of three they have created in the series. Film is a passion for the two, who perform as the The Silver Screen Scoundrels. The group melds silent films with their music. The duo would film all day while they were on the road, play their gig, and then upload the videos. “Every view was like a Christmas present for us,” said Picot.

Picot said this is the age of screens with so many people connected with technology. The Silver Screen Scoundrels create a film for each song, which are shown on a screen during the show. Issak was recently nominated for a Maple Blues Award for Song Writer of the Year and Picot received an award in 2011 for Canada’s Best Bass Player. Picot said the two spend a lot of time having fun with their music, which spills out into the audience. “We take our music very seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously,” he said. “It’s not so much we are creating comedy. We are just liberating it.” The Silver Screen Scoundrels perform at Simonholt Friday (June 14). Doors open at 8 p.m. and the show begins at 9 p.m. The show also features Nanaimo musician Shauna McAllister. ◆ See ‘MCALLISTER /22 Brandon Issak, left, and Keith Picot, of The Silver Screen Scoundrels, perform at Simonholt Friday (June 14).

Crowe croons her way to the big screen with a role in the Man of Steel Allison Crowe is appearing onscreen with a capped crusader who is faster than a speeding bullet. The singer, originally from Nanaimo who now lives in Newfoundland, landed a role in the upcoming movie Man of Steel. “The experience of film-

ing on Man of Steel was one of the most fulfilling and insanely exciting experiences I’ve ever had,” said Crowe in a press release. “I was so excited I couldn’t sleep the night before. I am so incredibly humbled and overwhelmed and grateful to be part of all of this - and it couldn’t

have been with a lovelier group of people.” Crowe said she couldn’t give too much information about her part in the movie before the film’s debut, but said everyone involved in the production was down to earth. “I can’t say much about it and that’s part of the fun. My lips are sealed,” she

said. “I will never, ever forget it. Honestly, I can think back to it now and still freak out in the best way ever.” Man of Steel is directed by Zack Snyder and features Henry Cavill as Clark Kent, Kevin Costner as Pa Kent, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Russell Crowe as Jor-El and more.

Man of Steel, the 3D version of the movie, debuts at Nanaimo’s Galaxy Cinema Thursday (June 13) at 10 p.m. Crowe is also releasing her 11th album June 25. Her album, Newfoundland Vinyl, was inspired by her work as music director for Theatre Newfoundland and work

in Labrador’s production of Newfoundland Vinyl: The Flip Side at the Gros Morne Theatre Festival. The album includes some traditional songs such as Skipper Billy’s Wake, Sonny’s Dream and Tiny Red Light. For more information about Crowe please go to www.allisoncrowe.com.

For the Simonholt show she’ll perform an acoustic country show to close out the evening.

Pejkovic, Miro

Irene remained strong willed to the end, dying with family by her side. Predeceased by her husband, Lou (1999); grandson, Nathan Pelter (2000), and other family members. Survived and lovingly remembered by sons: Wayne, Lyle; daughter, Diane (Gerald) Burt; grandsons, Casey Pelter, Owen and Colton Burt; sister, Miriam Scott; brother, Don (Irene) Leischner; brother-inlaw, Al Pelter, and numerous nieces and nephews. Irene was born in Piapot, Sask, moving to Vancouver Island where she met and married her loving husband, Lou in 1948. They raised their family and resided in Cassidy until 1993, when they relocated to Nanaimo. Irene was a wonderful wife, mother, friend and caregiver to all. She created a home where family and friends were always welcome to enjoy a meal, a drink AND conversation. Irene’s positive and upbeat personality reected in her many involvements in the home and community. A Celebration of Life will be held at Nanaimo Sands Funeral Chapel, 1 Newcastle Avenue, Friday, June 14, 2013 at 2p.m. The family wish to thank Dr. Forrester and the staff in Cottage #2 Wexford Creek for the care and compassion that was given to Irene. In lieu of owers, memorial donations may be made on Irene’s behalf to Wexford Creek Good Samaritan or Alzheimer Societies. Sands ~ Nanaimo • 250-753-2032

NANAIMO FALLS 12-11 for fifth straight loss.

Juniors outshot by huge margin

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Timbermen came back and made a game of it, but they couldn’t come all the way back. The Coastal Windows Timbermen senior A lacrosse team lost 12-11 to the Burnaby Lakers on Sunday night at Frank Crane Arena. It was a valiant effort by the home team, considering that the score was 10-4 for the Lakers early in the second period and looking like a possible blowout. The T-men twice got within a goal, but lost a key faceoff with 18 seconds left and didn’t get the ball back. “Playing from behind, each mistake kind of weighs; it’s kind of like quicksand,” said Chris O’Dougher ty, T-men defender. So even though the home team outscored the visitors 5-1 in the third, it wasn’t enough. “If we get behind like that, it’s going to be awfully hard for us to win,” said Cody Bremner, who had three goals and three assists for Nanaimo. Penalties were a factor on Sunday, as the Lakers got seven power plays compared to three for the Timbermen. The short man, led by goalie Zak Boychuk, held the

Lakers to 3-of-7, but playing short-handed made the comeback more difficult. “One period we take off, or we just make too many mental errors and it costs us the game,” said Kaleb Toth, Timbermen coach. “And it’s got to change or else we’re … going to lose the rest of the games this year.” The coach identified a few problem areas. Aside from the penalty trouble,

Toth questioned some of the shot selection and some ill-advised passes. “We have to play smarter lacrosse, plain and simple,” he said. “When we do play good, we score goals and we shut down defensively.” Bremner suggested there are lapses of concentration. “Maybe [we’re] pushing things too much and trying to do a little too much out there and

when that happens, that’s when we have our breakdowns,” he said. Besides Bremner’s hat trick, Blake Kenny had two goals and two assists for the T-men and Cayle Ratcliff had a goal and four helpers. Jake Emms, Ryan Keith, Paul Brebber, Kyle Hofer and Graham Palmer were the other scorers. Boychuk made 43 saves as his team was outshot 54-36.

Quickfacts SR. A T-MEN play three games in five nights starting Wednesday (June 12) when they visit Langley. They visit Burnaby on Friday. NEXT HOME GAME is this Sunday when the T-men play Coquitlam at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.

Pirates beat Mariners in extras BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Pirates keep splitting doubleheaders, but they’ll keep striving for a sweep. The Hub City Paving Pirates premier baseball team lost 1-0 and then won 6-5 against the Victoria Mariners on Saturday at Serauxmen Stadium, then won 5-3 and lost 3-2 to the Vancouver Cannons the

next day at Serauxmen. “We just keep doing the .500 thing. It’s starting to get a little old,” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. The team has split its last five doubleheaders, all of them on home field. “This team seems very nice, very polite, very cordial on the field, instead of putting the guy down and stomping on his throat when he’s down…” the manager said. “We need to

get that fire.” Some of that fire was there Saturday for a couple of tight ball games against the rival Mariners. The second game against the M’s went to extra innings and the Pirates were able to win in nine even after they got down by two runs in the eighth. Devon Geary hit the game-winning RBI single, his second hit of the game. ◆ See ‘BALL’ /31

Nanaimo Pirates first baseman Tom Negrin makes a catch during a game Sunday afternoon at Serauxmen Stadium.

The junior A Nanaimo Timbermen still haven’t run off the floor with a win, and things seem to be getting worse. The city’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team lost two more games on the weekend, 11-7 to the New Westminster Salmonbellies on Saturday at Frank Crane Arena and then 11-4 Sunday on the road against the Langley Thunder. The T-men were badly outshot both games, 64-33 the first day and 72-22 the next. Goalie Pete Dubenski played every minute in goal, making 53 saves, then 61. (The franchise record is 71, set by Brandon Atherton in 2005.) Nick Sanderson led Nanaimo’s offence with two goals on Saturday and Corey Shires had a hat trick Sunday. The Timbermen visit the Victoria Shamrocks tonight (June 11).

Nanaimo golfer wins Prairie title Nanaimo’s Zach Anderson won one of the majors on the junior boys’ golf circuit. The 16-year-old placed first at the CN Future Links Prairie Championship on the weekend, carding a 66 Sunday at the Elmwood Golf and Country Club in Swift Current, Sask. He shot rounds of 68 then 74 leading up to the final round. “I didn’t have the best day yesterday so I had to play really hard to come back,” said Anderson in a Golf Canada press release. Anderson’s 66 included an eagle, four birdies and one doublebogey. The Prairie title gives him a berth in nationals in Garson, Ont. at the end of July. “I just plan on practising a lot, working with my coach, and just grinding it out until the championship,” he said.

Gymnasts Adin Brenner and Jasmine Brenner promote the Nanaimo Sport Achievement Awards Million Dollar Hole-In-One contest at Beban Park Golf Course.

BEBAN PARK holding contest for sport awards.

Every swing helps. The Nanaimo Sport Achievement Awards announced last week its Million Dollar Hole-InOne contest, to be held in September at Beban Park Golf Course. The contest is a fund-

raiser for the annual awards, which then distribute the proceeds through an athlete assistance program. Volker Grady, general manager of German Auto Import Network Nanaimo, event sponsor, said the awards are meant to encourage athletes to be the best in their field. “We recognize their blood, their sweat, their

tears and their dedication and discipline,” said Grady. “So we as a community need to step up to encourage them, to support them with all our means to get them to succeed.” To enter the contest, duffers need to buy a ticket for $5 that will allow them to hit five balls in the first round of the contest. Anyone who lands a ball on the green

in the first round will advance to the second round to try for a hole-inone and the grand prize. The contest will take place Sept. 11-14. Tickets are available at Nanaimo Subaru, Golf West, Beban Park Golf Course, the Mid-Island Co-op on Hammond Bay Road, or at Nanaimo Museum. Call 250-7166110 or 250-756-0108 for more information.

Ball team needs to find mental focus to sweep doubleheaders u From /29

Zach Diewert was 2-for-2 with two walks in the win and Alex Rogers threw a nine-inning complete game, allowing five hits, two earned runs and striking out eight batters. In Saturday’s other

game, the Pirates couldn’t provide any run support for Luke Skingle, who threw a complete game, giving up four hits, no earned runs and striking out five. Diewert had the only two hits for his team. On Sunday against the

Cannons, Tanner Linn earned the win, throwing six innings. Shawn Arabsky had two hits and two runs scored and Diewert and Aidan Goodall had two RBIs each. In the rematch, the Pirates got down early

and their late comeback attempt fell short. Diewert was 2-for-3 and had both his team’s RBIs. Doug Rogers said his team missed an opportunity to distance itself from the Cannons in the standings. He didn’t think

his guys were focused for the finale, overconfident because they already had a win in the bag and two strong pitchers available to take the mound. “There’s more to the game than just throwing, hitting and running,” he

said. “There’s so much more to it and a lot of it’s mental.” GAME ON … The premier Pirates visit the Parksville Royals on Wednesday (June 12) at 6:30 p.m. at Springwood Park. sports@nanaimobulletin.com
