f you are one of the growing number of people driving the Pacific Marine Circle Route, be forewarned: help is not necessarily a phone call away. The B.C. Ambulance Service assures travellers its radio service and back-up options are dependable, but cellphone reception between Lake Cowichan and Port Renfrew can be poor. Motorists can expect delays in help arriving, or being reached at all. Lake Cowichan fishing-business owner Mike Woodhouse pointed out his concerns in an email to the News Leader Pictorial.

Pacific Marine Circle Route: Ambulance service assures travellers its radio system is dependable, but gaps in cell phone service are a concern

“Locals and visitors have no idea help is hours away if there is an accident out there,” he said. “It makes me shudder thinking of someone hurt in a car wreck waiting for someone to drive an hour to get cell service, or to find a pay phone.” His mayday stemmed from conversations with Lake Cowichan log truckers, and retired mill workers. “My understanding is there is no radio communication at all, from Lake Cow to Port Ren-

frew, for the paramedics, something I see is a real safety hazard,” his email says. “I have heard the local ambulance service barely has any radio coverage in the Port Renfrew (area) at all.” Not so, explains an email from B.C. Ambulance Service spokesperson Kelsie Carwithen. “BCAS has a robust telecommunications system in place for the Marine Circle Route area,” she said. “This system ensures paramedics can communicate quickly and efficiently with each other, the BCAS Vancouver Island dispatch

centre, hospitals, and other emergency service agencies.” In an emergency, she says, paramedics have access to several communication methods: a VHF radio system; satellite-phone capability in both the station and ambulance; and access to the Ministry of Transport radio system – a radio-to-telephone system. “BCAS maintains good ongoing business relationships with telephone/cellular providers, and we work closely with them to ensure consistent, high quality service,” Carwithen says. A Telus agent was unavailable by deadline Tuesday to comment about poor citizen cellphone reception on the circle route. more on page A9

Start on Chemainus River Bridge replacement delayed

Replacement of the Chemainus River Bridge has been delayed a week, allowing more time for power-pole relocation, North Cowichan staff says. Construction was to start yesterday. It will now span June 17 and Oct. 17. Staff said the delay for safety and engineering reasons, followed BC Hydro crews hitting rock

when preparing to erect new poles. Starting Monday, all traffic — from people, cars and trucks to bicycles — will be re-routed to the Trans-Canada Highway. There will be access to driveways for local traffic. A map of re-routing to the highway is on North Cowichan’s website. The $5-million project, funded by provincial

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A3 gas-tax money, will see the rustic, wooden structure, located near Pinson’s Corner between Swallowfield and Ashcroft Roads, demolished. The modern bridge will boast a walkway/bike path on both sides, according to John Mackay, North Cowichan’s director of engineering and operations. For more, call municipal hall at 250-746-3100.

Cowichan as a co-operative quality-goods Mecca? Here’s how: Italy’s worker-owned business model pitched to Cowichanians by CEO of Coastal Community Credit Union

Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

C

o-operatives could be the saviour of Cowichan’s economy. Or at least that hope was kindled recently by Adrian Legin, CEO of the Coastal Community Credit Union, during his inspirational VIU-Cowichan lecture about worker-owned businesses. He was not talking about just any enterprises. He used Italy’s fabulously successful EmeliaRomagna — comprising eight regions economically well-tuned, like one of their Maseratis — as a model for making Cowichan, and the island, a recession-proof powerhouse. Legin labeled that model “co-opetition” — co-operation and competition “grounded in relationship-based trust.” “There’s an all-pervasive pride of quality that creates the Italian brand.” Legin cited Lamborghinis, olive oil, prized leathers such as shoes and handbags, specialized manufacturing machinery, wines, fine tiles, even wallpaper — all made in prosperous ER, including capital city Bologna. The ER idea is what he called “the long end of the tail.” “You only need a fraction of a percent of the worldwide market” to provide big profits and jobs. Cowichan’s tail may be a different length, but Legin explained the island’s advantage over its older Italian cousin. “We have the same type of opportunities as they do, but we have natural resources. “We need to brand ourselves as a (island) region, like the Emelia-Romagna does.” Lively Legin pointed to the night’s hosting Cowichan Co-operative Connections to pair like-minded people — including First Nations folks — with ideas and capital to form local co-operatives. Then, as in ER, make and market the Warm

Adrian Legin, Coastal Community Credit Union’s CEO, explains ways to grow Cowichan’s economy through co-operative businesses, like those in Italy, during a May 31 session at VIU Cowichan. Land’s list of goods — from Cowichan sweaters, wines, and cheeses, to organic foods, wood goods, and much more. That could spell Cowichan tax advantages, like those gained by ER worker co-ops where savings are plowed into equipment and training. Cowichan, he indicated, could also target ER-type, four-person companies — one business for every 10 citizens. Legin was long on facts about ER’s history of integrated management, marketing, worker pride and smarts, and niche manufacturing that’s helping Italy weather global fiscal fracturing — while nearby countries like Greece, Spain and others face chaos. “During the 2008 recession, Italian companies weren’t hit hard,” he explained, noting workers lowered their wages to keep their

factories afloat rather than taking layoffs. But without diversified manufacturing of high-demand goods, our resource-dependent island’s economy’s been soft since ‘08. That’s why Legin used the ER model to pitch home-grown, skilled-labour and trades-pools through VIU-Cowichan and other institutions, to fill jobs in co-ops. “Ask our universities and colleges to develop courses needed,” he said, noting workers could find careers in Cowichan, not join the brain drain. And, he signalled, ER’s canny enterprisers may accept, but don’t expect, leadership from local politicians, chambers of commerce, and economic development execs — whose valley counterparts weren’t represented at his lecture. Listening to Legin, Cowichanians must reach out to each other, form and register co-ops,

then brand Warm Land goods as the unique, “artisanal” items Levin described from ER. It also means sharing services such as accountants, lawyers, graphic designers, suppliers — all routine practices in the ER. However, he admitted his credit union hasn’t yet the money, nor the resources to provide back-up services to co-ops. “We give most of the money we make back to communities,” said Legin. Still, he seemed committed to concepts of coop businesses, where workers share the profits. “We’ve got to get rid of the co-operative stigma; some think they’re socialists.” But just as Canuck entrepreneurs dislike government taxation and regulation, so do Italians. “Everyone in Italy hates the federal government,” said Legin.

Small rezoning effectively ends decades-long Timbercrest saga

Somenos Marsh: North Cowichan approves application for multi-stage project’s final four lots

subdivided into four residential lots. “There’s a covenant going on that there can’t be duplexes there,” noted Mayor Jon Lefebure. The covenant restricts the property to singlefamily homes only; municipal approval of conceptual lot layouts; restoration of riparianstream areas and adjacent parkland strip prescribed by local biologist David Polster as a condition of future development; and trails being built across the property must link with existing trails and nearby sidewalks. Paul Fletcher, Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society’s president, was upset by council’s ruling on the site bordering the sensitive wetland. “Stupid,” he wrote to the News Leader Pictorial. “Once again extensive opposition, and third reading. Typical.” Lefebure indicated he understood local worries about development near Somenos Marsh. “They were questions on finer points, but the protected area is still there.” Those local beefs about the zoning change included banning duplexes, the size of the

Property devaluation, blocked views, and building on the floodplain were also noted by staff and six councillors led by acting-mayor Ruth Hartmann. Some folks claimed the development will disturb sensitive Aboriginal archaeological areas, and an archaeologist should be on site when soil is moved. However, planning consultant Gerald LeBlanc said B.C.’s Archaeological Branch had closed its Timbercrest file. If artifacts are found during building, further preservation action may be needed, he

explained. Municipal planner Brigid Reynolds noted a two-hectare burial site — containing Aboriginal remains — off Timbercrest’s Trillium Terrace, is now owned by the province, and is part of Timbercrest’s overall management area. “We’ll see something come forward to better protect it. When, I don’t know,” she said. Timbercrest’s controversial development, by landowner George Schmidt, reaches back at least to the 1980s. “Instead of rezoning the whole property, it was done in phases and this was the final rezoning,” Reynolds said of Timbercrest action under several mayors. “It’s not a small subdivision.” Besides building homes, Schmidt pitched a York Road-extension bridge across marshland to Timbecrest. That plan was nixed by North Cowichan and federal Fisheries staff. “There’s still a right-of-way there, but there’s been no (recent) discussion about any kind of bridge,” Reynolds noted.

problems to its staff, and to the B.C. Ambulance Service. Barter noted BCAS has been receptive to ambulance-communication craters raised by the paramedics union, and done what it can to remedy issues. “It’s a safety issue for paramedics, and we need to be able to communicate. Lots goes on on these (remote) roads. Log-truck drivers are often the eyes and ears out there.” Barter understood modern technology has its bugs. “Things can always go wrong. Sometimes a tree’s down, or it’s bad weather. These glitches can happen, and we have such diverse terrain in this province.” Carwithen suggested simple actions “such as alerting family or friends of your route and time of arrival/return can greatly assist first responders in the event of an emergency.” The BCAS can be reached at 250-9783235.

from page A1

Ambulance Paramedics of B.C. spokesperson Bronwyn Barter did not have first-hand knowledge of the local situation, but said communication problems aren’t uncommon in rural and remote B.C. She chalked gaps to remote geography, fickle weather, and technical snafus. “(Near Tofino) there are dead areas where dispatch can’t get ahold of (ambulance crews).” That could mean paramedics are unaware of an accident on the road behind them, one they could circle back and attend, she said. Or bad reception may mean a patient has been ordered to another hospital. “It’s something we address and bring up.” To better pinpoint communication gaps, the APBC suggests folks to report

t’s been quite an ordeal for Cowichan Tribes’ Felix Paige since being diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. But the community, the support of his family and his culture is helping Paige get through it. A recent fundraising auction for Paige in advance of his double lung transplant surgery raised $1,862 and he’s extremely grateful. Wife Maude Joe did the bulk of the work to make the auction a success as well as his girls Hilda and Leslie-Ann, sister Sherry Thomas, and good friend Jonathan Joe and his son Arnie Joe. “This will help us with costs in Vancouver after the transplant,’’ noted Paige. He was told in September that he only had 33% of his lung capacity left and would have only three to five years to live. “I did not tell my family at first,’’ recalled Paige. “I did not know how to deal with this news. I went to see my cousin Wayne Paige and I asked him to go with me to tell my girls.’’ He was only able to tell his oldest daughter because his youngest was

attending Camosun College in Victoria. “I then told my mom and my mate,’’ noted Paige. “I then did not talk to anyone about this situation for over a year. I avoided thinking about it.’’ Paige’s doctor referred him to a specialist in Nanaimo, who in turn referred Paige to a specialist in Vancouver in November 2011. It took a year until November 2012 before he got an appointment. Paige will have to live in Vancouver for three to six months after the transplant. Both his lungs will be taken out since he’s younger than most recipients. He’s now waiting for the call that could come as early as July. Paige keeps busy as best as he can, but it obviously plays on his mind. “I work two jobs, 55 hours a week,’’ he indicated. “I work with people who have disabilities and I am a youth worker for 19 teens who

live in a youth housing complex, three floors and 20 apartments. “Working so many hours, this allows me to avoid thinking the worst. Prayers help me through the day. “I carve three to four days a week. I read a book every six to seven days. I believe that with working six days a week, carving and reading, this keeps me away from the pity pot.’’ Paige added when his thoughts do turn to his situation, it scares the hell out of him. “I cannot walk up three flights of stairs, I cannot walk up hills, I cannot power walk,’’ he pointed out. “I get right out of breath. I can almost go into an anxiety attack because I feel that I cannot get any air in my lungs.’’ Paige said he wants to stay positive for his family and “my culture helps me stay positive.’’ Wife Maude is planning another fundraising auction for July 8 at the Somena Longhouse.

3. Show some leg The days of big, baggy surf shorts are over. Mid-thigh shorts are the new length for mens swimwear. They instantly give an air of sophistication and old-school style. If you’re feeling confident, try a floral print. If a more polished look is what you prefer, a dark navy or burgundy pair should do the trick.

Cover Story

1. Embrace colour Greens, coral, orange, pink and periwinkle — guys look great and so refreshing when they wear bold colours. Whether it’s a hat, swim trunks, or just a flash of a bright pair of socks, opting for coloured clothing shows confidence and always makes people notice. (In a good

In Your Fashion

from A12

Throw on a lightweight merino wool or cotton sweater to really show your fashion credo. Paired with mid-thigh swim shorts and tan brogues, you can easily take a beach look through to evening just by throwing a good quality sweater around your shoulders.

Meet: Stylore Knip Age: 24 Occupation: connoisseur

5. Wear hats (Ball-caps not included). When out and about this summer, test-drive a new type of cap. The fedora made its sartorial comeback a few years back and the golf style hat always looks neat and tidy (FYI, hats of any kind should not be worn inside, and save the ball caps for the beach or the ballfield).

Passion: Human Rights My style is best described as: A cascading technicolour rainbow. My style icon is: Vince Camuto Today I am wearing: An ex-favourite sweater, linen fisherman’s pants from Thailand, necklace from Peru.

Introducing Gypsy Luna Sewing and selling: Local aspiring chef finding a sartorial outlet for another side of her creative muse

Eliza Faulkner

News Leader Pictorial

G

ypsy Luna is a range of tiedyed, stenciled, and printed T’s, tops, and leggings made by Carmen Agatiello in Cowichan Bay, B.C. When Carmen’s not busy learning the tricks of the trade at culinary school, she’s busy sewing away and selling her goods all around the Cowichan Valley. If you’re looking for something unique to wear this festival season, I highly recommend any of Carmen’s pieces. The Gandhi shirt and Bob Marley stenciled turtleneck will surely leave a good sartorial impression at any summer event. I met up with Carmen at the Duncan Farmer’s Market to learn more about her hand-crafted, up-cycled works of fashion art. What inspired you and your designs? My clothing designs and stencils are inspired by influential people whom I look up to, different spiritual representations and varied cultural symbols. I was inspired by a Puerto Rican artist who showed me his techniques, which I then applied to my own clothing, and soon after was creating and selling my own designs.

What techniques do you use when making your pieces? My clothing is tie dyed or reverse tie dyed, some of my items also might include unique cutting designs. I create all of my products by either tie dying, using a splatter technique, spiral, folding, etc. or I use a solution which creates an acid wash effect accompanied by hand cut stencils. Then, if I want to give the item an unexpected twist, I will start cutting in designs, adding fringe or removing sleeves and collars. Where is your clothing sold? My clothing is sold at the Duncan Farmer’s Market and the South Cowichan Farmer’s Market. I also have an Etsy shop. What are your aspirations for your label? This is my creative outlet and I enjoy every second of it. For now I want to continue selling at the local farmers markets, but I am unsure of what the future holds for my clothing. I only hope that wherever I end up, I will continue to create and love doing it. You can visit the Gypsy Luna online store at etsy.com/shop/GypsyLunas or visit the Duncan Farmers Market and the South Cowichan Farmers Market. Prices range from $20 to $30 and Carmen does take custom orders on request.

magine an organization which has donated funds for more than 65 consecutive years to support cancer patient care, research and equipment. Now imagine the commitment of thousands of members hosting socials and teas, bazaars, raffles and other fund-raisers, as well as giving freely of their time to meet their charitable goals. According to Ruth Foster, Director of Cancer Activities for the O.E.S., “There are four categories of annual giving: educational bursaries, equipment, supplies and Cancer Dressings.” Last year, $8,362.29 was collected from the sale of cancelled stamps and postcards throughout British Columbia and Yukon to be distributed for Cancer Research or Cancer Dressings, wherever it is needed. (We must thank our friends in the community for keeping us well supplied with stamps.) Sunset Chapter #44, Duncan has one of our 39 Cancer Dressing Stations, located downstairs in the Mercury Theatre on Brae Road, Duncan. Last year, throughout our jurisdiction, 170 dedicated members volunteered 8120 hours producing 69,708 cancer dressings at a cost of $9,599.91. (We’ve used up inventory on hand, which once again reduced expenses. There is a need for dressings in Northern BC, so these numbers will likely increase next year.)

Thank you to our generous Partners!

Presently, sterilization is only being done by certain Hospitals and Clinics by trained and qualified staff in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna andd Prince George. The present method of distribution on is - the hospital staff will give the patient a supplyy of cancer dressings to take home. Local cancer patients requiring dressings are asked to contact the Canadian Cancer Society Office at 250-746-4134. Cancer is a dreadful disease without the added burden of the expense of dressings often required. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHARGE TO THE PATIENT. All that is required is a doctor’s referral. By supporting our Stamp Project, attending bazaars and teas, the Cabaret Night or buying tickets on our annual Cancer Draw, you enable us to continue our efforts in the fight against cancer. We’ve had a Polar Swim each February since 2005, first at Transfer Beach in Ladysmith and starting this year, at Departure Bay in Nanaimo. Thanks to pledges/donations, the members willing to brave the chilly water, have raised over $50,000.00 for Cancer Projects.

AREA E

Please drop off your used stamps at the Cowichan News Leader/Pictorial Office between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, Mon. to Fri., #2-5380 Trans Canada Hwy., the United Steelworkers Office, 351 Brae Road, or the local Cancer Office, #100-394 Duncan Street. NB: Our Stamps Dealers dictate how the stamps are to be trimmed, so we are asking our friends in the community NOT to TRIM stamps off envelopes. Just leave the stamps intact and we’ll do the rest. We don’t want any stamps to be spoiled. Thanks. Cowichan Green Community

B.C. Games qualifier draws athletes away from Garriock Tracked down: Many off to the mainland while their peers rack up great results at sportsplex

owichan Valley shot-put star Agnes Esser has qualified for the Summer Games with two first place wins, one in shot-put and the other in discus during weekend competition at the Canada Games Trials’ Track Meet in Coquitlam. On top of Esser, five of the valley’s top track athletes competed, reported Cowichan Valley Athletic Club’s Pat Kehler, including Chicago Bains, who took home two firsts, a second and a third place finish in hurdles and sprint events. Shawnigan Lake’s Jamie Ashcroft also scored a personal best with a 25.67 finish in the 200 metre sprint, placing fourth in that event. Grade 11 Frances Kelsey student Tia Baker also outdid herself with two bests, in the 200and 400-metre sprints. While some of the top locals were on the mainland, CVAC was hosting its annual Garriock Track and Field Meet. Even though this year’s annual meet, said to be the biggest on the island, wasn’t a Summer Games qualifier, it was still a smash, said CVAC’s Wendy Palou. “Last year’s event was qualifier and that brings numbers up,” explained Palou, noting every couple years the Garriock acts as a qualifying event. Palou said new member Madelyn Pollock came out well, with a first place finish in the girls 12-years-old 100-metre dash event. “She’s fairly new to track and she’s been doing so well,” said Palou. Same goes for CVAC’s Torren Kaiser. “He’s new as well and he also did well,” said Palou. He took home gold in the boys 11-years-old 100-metre.

Madeline Starr, 9, of the CVAC Jaguars clears the bar in an high jump attempt, recording her personal best at 103cm, during the Garriock Track and Field Meet, June 9.

Oliver Castle It was only natural that swimming became a specialty sport for Oliver Castle. “I live on the lake,’’ he said. “Water is my second thing.’’ Castle, 12, a Grade 6 student at Ecole Mill Bay, joined the Duncan Stingrays swim team when he was nine. He made a big impression in 11-year-old AAA short course provincials and is aiming to do the same as a 12-year-old. “He’s shown a lot of promise in distance freestyle,’’ said Stingrays’ assistant coach Colleen Smith. “The first time he swam the 1,500 freestyle he qualified for AAAs for 11-year-olds. We see a lot of great things coming from him as he continues to improve.’’ Castle likes the distance events compared to shorter swims like the 50 metres. “I’ve had my ups and downs, mostly ups,’’ he said of his swimming record so far. He’s putting in the time to make improvements, going to the pool four times a week, including Saturday mornings. Castle knows there are subtle things that can make a difference. “My coach is trying to get me to keep my head down on my first stroke,’’ he said. “I don’t really want to, but people can lose a race by just a split second.’’

S

pirited competition from here, there and everywhere: • The Cowichan Valley Capitals have acquired the rights to two players from Ontario teams. The B.C. Hockey League squad has added Myles Powell from the Carleton Place Canadians of the Central Canada Hockey League. Powell played last season for the BCHL Victoria Grizzlies, collecting 17 goals and 18 assists for 35 points in 52 games. “He adds a sweet touch around the net,’’ noted Caps’ coach Bob Beatty. “We are thrilled to have Myles pulling on a Caps’ jersey. He brings a lot of experience and a great scoring touch to the Capitals.’’ The Caps also acquired six-foot-four, 220-pound defenceman Patrick Arnold from the Milton Ice Hawks of the Ontario Junior Hockey League. “He is a solid stay-athome guy who will offer the leadership we need in our end of the ice,’’ noted

Beatty. • Mackenzie Thompson of Duncan Lanes played 21 games in three days during the Youth Bowling Canada national tenpin championships in Vancouver. After dropping his first four matches in bantam boys’ singles, he rebounded to win three of the last four on the first day. He won two of six on the last day, his first and last matches. Day One scores were 133, 136, 150, 131, 137, 116, 173 and 176. He scored 181, 103, 140, 131, 115 and 149 on the second day. Thompson bowled under his average of 114 only twice in the 21 games. • Mia Butcher, 11, lives in Duncan and trains at Falcon Gymnastics in Victoria, hosts of the Garden City Invitational. Butcher competed as a P2 Tyro in the event held at Panorama. She won two bronze medals on vault and floor, came fourth on uneven bars and placed eighth overall. — Don Bodger

Bantam B Thunder doubles Comox in rematch

Cowichan Valley Bantam B Thunder knew exactly what to do when it played a lacrosse rematch with the Comox Valley Wild. Cowichan lost 4-1 April 13 in the last meeting of the teams at Fuller Lake. This time, the Thunder turned the tables for a 6-3 win at Comox. Cowichan goalie Zander Cozine allowed two

goals in the first period and only one in the third and shut out Comox in the second. Goals came from Parker Teufel (2), Jarvis Rush, Caleb Nordstrom, Brayden Grantham and Will Wright. Gavin Spencer collected three assists while Wright, Liam Joe and Caleb Nordstrom added two apiece.

Rhys Mazurenko and Rush tallied single assists. The team hosted a hot dog sale at the Duncan Walmart store to boost the finances for an upcoming tournament and trips to the Island championship and provincials, if it qualifies.

Pride and humility mark this year’s top T-Birds Sportsmanlike attitude: Gray and Jory get top honours at Cowichan Secondary School’s annual athletic awards ceremony

Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

T

wo things were clear following results from Cowichan Secondary School’s annual athletic banquet. Pride in its school sports is high and its athletes are very humble. “The kids that make it to the top, they’re not only outstanding in sports, but they’re also very humble,” said Cowichan coach Gill Braun. “In all cases it’s team sports and it takes more than one athlete.” Every year, Cowichan Secondary’s coaches are hard-pressed when it comes to the decisions for their athletic awards. “In all the time I’ve been here, and I’ve coached for 15 years, every year it’s been gut-wrenching because there are so many candidates to choose from,” said Braun, noting Cowichan boasts 250 athletes. “Every year it’s tight and it’s super close.” This year’s batch was as humble as ever. “It’s really a special thing, getting to wear the T-Birds jersey and knowing you play for a very strong team and program,” said this year’s male athlete of the year Cyrus Gray. The T-Birds senior boys basketball star said he was surprised to be a nominee. “I was completely surprised,” he said. “I really had no idea.” Gray, who’s played ball for about seven years, said he’s eying up Camosun College’s basketball program and will be red-shirting with them come fall. Top female athlete and rugby sensation Samantha Jory was just as shocked. “I guess I came by the sport in an opportune time,” she said. “And we did really well this year. We came out of the season undefeated, which was really cool.” Jory said she’ll miss this year’s team’s “dynamic and how well we meshed.” Her plan is to hitch onto the University of Duncan’s Nicole Morgan enjoys the moment as the winner of the masters figure class with the NPAA. submitted

Alberta’s rugby squad next year. One of the banquet’s most prestigious awards, the scholar athlete (G.D. Corson) award, went to gymnast, field hockey and soccer player extraordinaire Cassidy Fernandes. “This year I was the captain of the soccer team and that was really fun,” said the quiet go-getter, who’s off to University of Victoria in the fall to study to be a pediatrician and play field hockey and soccer. She’s also hoping to squeeze in some gym-

nastics coaching time. “These kids, they’re the new age athletes,” said Braun. “It’s about attitude and team work, and that’s the most important to them,” Braun said. Cyrus, Jory and Fernandes all gave kudos to their coaches. “Once you’re a T-Bird, it’s with you for life,” said Braun. “That’s what makes Cow Secondary so unique, this whole tradition of our athletics programs, wearing the T-Birds jersey, and

seeing the blue banners decorating the gym.” This year’s banquet which took place June 6 was about celebration, “and for all these athletes to witness what each other has been up to in all the different sports.” Other award winners included, Foster Schlienz (T-Birds manager) as sportsperson of the year, Sartaj Dale (soccer) as Grade 10 female athlete of the year, and Joshua Charles (basketball) as Grade 10 male athlete of the year.

Morgan’s success inspires clients to follow Figure competition: Pure Fitness instructor provides motivation for others Don Bodger

F

ollowing Nicole Morgan’s lead is a good idea. Duncan’s Morgan of Pure Fitness has achieved considerable success in bodybuilding competitions that led nine clients to give it a try. They entered the International Drug Free Athletes event in Vancouver and

the newcomers did extremely well, inspired by the master. Stacie Nelson was first in figure and the top novice overall at the show. Emily Ellis came second in figure, Sarah Taylor third in fitness model and Kathy Adelborg fourth in figure. Sarah McAfee was fifth in figure and also did a transformation challenge, according to Morgan. “She’s lost a ton of weight,’’ Morgan said. “She got a medal for that.’’ The rest didn’t place but found out what the competition was all about and that experience should prove invaluable next time. “I was very proud of them,’’ said

Morgan. “It was more exciting watching them go through it than me.’’ Morgan swept to first place in the IDFA and the preceding Natural Physique and Athletics Association show in May in New Westminster for the Open Figure and Masters Figure classes. She also got her pro card in both associations. Morgan will continue to work with the other athletes on shows, but is going to take a bit of a break from competition herself. “I’m taking the rest of the year off,’’ she said. “I want a full year and do a pro show either in the States or across Canada.’’

Time is ripe to let Somenos Marsh breathe

Ecology: With Timbercrest finally at its end, why not close the door on future development?

N

orth Cowichan council recently gave tentative approval to what some have called the final chapter of the longest development controversy in the valley. Just four lots were affected by last week’s decision, but it is newsworthy to point out the ruling may have effectively completed the buildout of the Timbercrest development — a 20-year project that effectively carved away the southeast corner of Somenos Marsh for housing. Timbercrest has been a political Officially football that has bounced North Cowichan officials between conservationdesignate the ists, Native heritage concerns and a marsh a prodesire to create a nice neighbourhood near the amenities of the city. tected area And, for all the controversy, we wonder if anything was learned. Certainly, members of the Somenos Marsh Society have not backed away from their position that the marsh is an ecological treasure that must be protected from further encroachment. Certainly those who care about our First Nations heritage have not wavered from their belief that cultural sites must not be disturbed. So if the Timbercrest development has finally run its course, what is the issue? The issue is North Cowichan council still seems OK with carving chunks off the marsh whenever it serves its purpose. Or have you missed the plan for the new police station? The time has come for North Cowichan to draw a firm line around what is left of the marsh and declare it a protected area — set aside for birds, fish, nature lovers and the good health of Cowichan’s ecology. Twenty years of debate is time enough. Let’s close the door on this debate and leave the marsh to exist in peace.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like

The 2008 North American Indigenous Games were perhaps the best cultural bonding event in the history of the Cowichan Valley. As time has passed, we have developed some doubt the long-term impact was as powerful as it felt when it happened. But that is not due to the efforts of organizers of the Walk of the Nations, who continue with their great job of keeping the spirit alive.

Walk of the Nations moves through Duncan June 1.

Paranoid or just being careful? Who do you trust? Ashley Degraaf

H

ow do we know who to trust around our children? This question’s come up several times since I’ve become a mom, and more recently after an evening last week when I took my son for a bite at Subway. A middle-aged man sitting in a booth by himself struck up a conversation with me about Jack, who’s now 17 months old. It wasn’t just small-talk. He asked a couple questions about Jack and we discussed how busy toddlers are discovering new objects, like my phone Jack kept trying to grab while we chatted. What seemed a harmless, typical interaction with a very nice fellow for some reason had me chewing on more than just my seafood sub.

I hate to say this, but at first I felt a tad uneasy. Tripping my train-of-thought were bright red letters, ‘Is he a weirdo, or just really nice?’ It’s a shame these days just because someone is too friendly we wonder why. A similar conversation came up a little back when a friend told me she’d already had worries about having her son (only two years old then) joining sports teams down the road because of cases where coaches molested kids. That struck a chord with me. Why is she already worrying? Should I be thinking about this too, now, or just in the future? And, most importantly, how do you deal with this? What bothered me most, as my mind re-winded back to my Subway experience, identifying predators isn’t always cut and

Thousands of words a week, 52 weeks a year, make mistakes inevitable. That doesn’t make them excusable. Last week we reported the results of our web poll as 88% against the police station at the school board office. It was actually 88% for.

dried. It’s not like they all have the word ‘Creep’ tattooed to their foreheads. But with that being said, should children never be allowed to speak to strangers, that friendly older man in the grocery store who just so happens to love children and has many of his own grandchildren, and wants to say ‘hello’? Maybe we’ve been watching too much Herbert the Pervert on the Family Guy and are too quick to assume all older dudes approaching kids are pervs. I also wondered why we often only pick on men. How about that woman who wants to hold your baby because she loves babies? Should we not trust her either? When I’ve talked about the topic among friends and family members, I’ve gotten similar responses in almost every case. When the time is right talk to your chil-

dren about what’s inappropriate and how to pick up on early indications as well as educating children on right steps to take if they find themselves in an uncomfortable situation. In the meantime, adults should listen to their Spidey senses. Don’t necessarily let them take the wheel every time, or you might come off as a complete snob when it’s completely unnecessary. But be aware they’re there. And they’re there for good reason: to remind us to approach and proceed with caution.

Again, it’s the same old very expensive story from the CVRD

Animal abuse issue needs more attention

Dear editor Thank you for publishing the charges against Brandon Harrison. One of his three criminal charges is “causing an animal to continue to be in distress.” The Crown has laid these three charges against Mr. Harrison, but the SPCA has not laid charges. He is still in possession of the dog he allegedly abused and so I assume there is still a real possibility this dog continues to be in distress. I encourage you to continue following not only justice in this case, but embrace the issue of animal neglect and abuse in the Cowichan Valley as an issue you cover, investigate, and publish. B.C. does have laws to punish animal abusers, but they are rarely enforced. There is a huge opportunity to cover these issues to make Cowichan Valley residents more aware of what is going on, good and bad, when it comes to animal abuse/neglect and what can be done about the negatives.

FUNERAL HOMES

DEATHS MICHAUD, Bella (December 7, 1909 – June 5, 2013)

The family of Bella Michaud are sad to advise that our beloved mother passed away peacefully with family at her bedside Cairnsmore Place in Duncan on June 5, 2013. Mom was born December 7, 1909 in St Eustache, Manitoba to Alphonse Lamontagne and Emma Desrochers. She was one of fifteen children. The family moved to Dumas, Saskatchewan in 1915. She and her first husband, Orhir Beauchesne, had six children. They moved to Victoria BC in 1946 and to Duncan in 1951, where they operated a restaurant in the Commercial Hotel. She was predeceased in 1953 by Orphir and in 1998 by her second husband, Lucien Michaud. She was also predeceased by her parents, ten brothers, three sisters, her daughters, Bernadette Kueber and Esther Campbell, her son, Albert, and her three son-in-laws, Bernard and Joseph Kueber and Bruce Campbell. Mom (Memere) is survived by her daughter Janet Kueber, two sons, Hector Beauchesne (Donna) and Ernest Beauchesne (Moira), her sister, Lou McLean, twenty grandchildren, thirty-seven great grandchildren, eight great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. The family greatly appreciates the care Mom received over the years from Drs Pullan and Thompson and Home Support staff, and more recently from second floor nursing staff at the Cowichan District Hospital and staff at Cairnsmore Place. Mom maintained a positive outlook throughout the ups and downs of her life. Her cheerful attitude and constant devotion to family and faith, was a wonderful example to all of us. She was much loved and will be greatly missed by family and friends. Prayers will be offered at St. Edward’s Church, 2085 Maple Bay Road, Duncan, BC at 7:00 pm on June 12, 2013. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Edward’s Church on June 13, 2013 at 11:00 am. Our thanks to Father Alfredo. Donation in Mom’s memory may be made to a charity of your choice.

DEATHS

CHAMBERS, Donald Jan. 4, 1947 -May 22, 2013 We regret to announce that Donald Gordon Chambers of Castle Wood Village, Castlegar died peacefully in his sleep on May 22, 2013. He was predeceased by his parents, Steve and Dot Chambers. He is survived by his wife Sarah Chambers of Mountain View Lodge, Nelson; his mother-in-law, Betty Polster of Duncan; his brother in law, David Polster and wife Genevieve Singleton of Duncan; sister-in-law, Celia Cheatley and husband David Cheatley of Victoria; brother in law Alan Polster and partner Lisa Larson of Revelstoke; and many nieces and nephews. Don was a kind man and a devoted husband, son and uncle. He grew up with his brother Dennis in Castlegar and was a lifelong resident of Castlegar and surrounding area. He worked for BC Forestry at a fire tower, Cominco and BC Ferries at Thrums, Glade and Robson. He married the love of his life, Sarah, in 1980. During all the ups and downs of Sarah and Don’s challenges Don remained committed and concerned about Sarah to the end of his life. In midlife Don was diagnosed with bipolar disease and later blindness. He took a great interest in country and western music, cars and current events. He had a phenomenal memory for dates and events. As a young man he enjoyed fishing, camping and hiking. His nephews and nieces gave him great joy and he took much interest in their activities. A celebration of life will be held Tuesday, June 18, 2-4 pm, at Castle Wood Village, 525 Columbia Ave., Castlegar.

ON STAGE

Come enjoy an Audience with the queen

For 60 years Elizabeth II has met each of her 12 prime ministers in a weekly private audience at Buckingham Palace. Both parties have an unspoken agreement never to repeat what is said — not even to their spouses. On Friday, you get a chance to break that contract — or at least an imaginary version of it —

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial B11

thanks to the last National Theatre Live broadcast at the Cowichan Theatre. Helen Mirren reprises her Oscar-winning turn as the British monarch in The Audience. “From young mother to grandmother, these private audiences chart the arc of the second Elizabethan Age. Politicians come and go through the revolving door of electoral politics, while she

remains constant,” promotional material states. The play reunites Mirren with writer Peter Morgan, writer of the movie The Queen in a stage production directed by director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours). It will be broadcast in high definition on the Cowichan Theatre big screen 7 p.m. Friday. For ticket info, call 250-748-7529 2687.

It’s raining dance this summer at Chemainus Theatre Singin’ In The Rain: Theatre fans get ready for more dance than Chemainus has ever seen before

Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

T

here’ll be a load of hoofin’ happenin’ in Chemainus Theatre Festival’s next musical romp, Singin’ In The Rain. Some of the fancy footwork comes courtesy of Leon Willey cast as Don Lockwood — the rain-soaked role made legendary by Gene Kelly in MGM’s 1952 hit movie. Willey will be opposite Rachel Harrison as girlfriend Kathy Selden, and Jonathan Purvis as pal Cosmo Brown, in an adaptation directed by choreographer Tracey Power. He is also wild about his newest theatre gig because he will be sharing the stage with his professional-dancer wife, Krista Konkin, who plays a movie exec’s gal-Friday. That’s the same stage where the couple met in 2007 during CTF’s production Anything Goes. It’s all come full circle for the 36-year-old Moose Jaw-based actor, who also appeared in he theatre’s farce Noises Off, and longed for a role like Lockwood. “The biggest excitement I have is to tell this kind of story. “The basis is there’s group of silent-movie actors making the leap into talkies. Like silent stars back then, some didn’t make the leap very well as their voice was terrible, or they couldn’t speak English very well.” That situation gives way to a love

story, he explained. Lockwood tires of performing with fading silent-era actress Lina Lamont (Emma Slipp) “when he meets a feisty, together girl named Kathy and he’s taken aback.” “It’s the first time Don’s ever been challenged by a woman in that way,” Willey said of the show-biz bonanza. “He falls madly in love — not only do I get to sing and dance with Kathy, but I also have these lovely scenes.” Toss in a mob of movie-making characters, plus Steven Greenfield’s onstage musicians, and Rain could flood houses. “We wanted to stay true to the original music,” Willey said. “If anyone’s seen the film, they’ll instantly recognize the songs.” His favourite is the title tune. “This is a bucket-list role for me,” said the Bowen Island-boy who attended Vancouver Film School. “The cast is all solid actors; I was attracted by the artistic team,” he said, likening the action to playing tennis. But tap-dancing wasn’t always Willey’s racket — it meant plenty of sole searching for dance skills after landing the lead role. “I basically tap danced every single day until I got better and faster,” he said, noting lessons from Konkin, and at several dance schools. “Jonathan’s still a better tap dancer, but we’ve got this great chemistry happening — it’s a real unit, and our chemistry with Kathy is electric.”

Andrew Leong

Leon Willey (Don Lockwood, left), Rachel Harrison (as Kathy Selden), and Jonathan Purvis (Cosmo Brown) tap dance their way through Singin’ In The Rain this summer at the Chemainus Theatre Festival. The whole cast plugs into that dance power, particularly the main characters. “Act one’s a real dance roller coaster; Make ‘Em Laugh has some back flips; Moses Supposes is a incredible high-energy duo between Cosmo and myself.”

Willey described Rain’s moral as being about taking risks to grow. And about the water during that famous Singin’ In The Rain routine? “That’s a bit of a secret, but it will definitely rain — someone might get splashed if I’m feeling extra frisky,” Willey said.

Lifelong lensman uses face pictures in his first show-and-tell story book Teca’s Adventure: Unique project finds expression in nature

mages of faces from nature just pop into focus for Gareth Goodger-Hill. The Mill Bay lensman has captured some with his camera, then made them characters for kids in his first book Teca’s Adventure. “All my life I’ve been seeing faces in barns, and wanted to do a book of barn faces, but that never came about.” Then about five years ago the semi-retired photography teacher recognized his first face from natural material such as rock. “I don’t find them, they find me; suddenly a face appears in front of me.”

Teca’s Adventure may be a humourous children’s book, tracing a little girl’s forest journey, but it’s also a picture-packed publishing vehicle for Montreal native Goodger-Hill, 74. “Using disconnected photos as a photographic novel is fairly original. I don’t know of anyone else who’s done one.” Teca’s Adventure started with Goodger-Hill connecting some creative dots. “I made all these photos and sat down with them one day and thought ‘What can I do with them?’” Answers about matching his digital pictures with a kids’ story came from his grandchildren. “I spoke to my grandchildren and they started their imaginations going,” he said of a story line that “just seemed to fall into place from there.” He wrote the text, and laid out the book of shots which “appeals to children, but does have adult appeal.” That’s because of Goodger-Hill’s

Valley photographer Gareth Goodger-Hill with Teca, the found namesake of his book, Teca’s Adventure. knack of using photography to communicate how to pluck pictures from everyday life — Teca offers trucks,

smiling rocks, trees, leaves, old metal objects and more, mostly from the Pacific Northwest, and the Califor-

nian desert. His sharp eye opened while teaching photography at Southern Illinois University, Montana State University, Massachusetts’ Hallmark Institute, and Ontario’s Conestoga College. He has three photos in the National Gallery of Canada too. “I hope people get some fun and humour, and appreciation of photography — and children get some appreciation of the visual arts. “I worked all my life so I can be my own patron now,” the Nikon user said. “It’s a hard field and you have to persevere; get as broad an education as you can.” His next book examines cloud shapes in Baja, Mexico. Teca’s Adventure is sold at Volume One, Gallowglass, and Ten Old bookshops, and on Amazon. He’ll also display photos and his book at Mill Bay’s Valley Vines to Wines from July 2 to Aug. 15.
