Parents emotional over school closures

I

firST pubLic forum to discuss facilities plan focused on Cedar. By Jenn m c garrigle ThE NEwS BULLETiN

More than 400 emotional parents, students, district employees and community members showed up to the first public forum Wednesday evening to discuss Nanaimo school district’s proposed 10-year facilities plan. The draft plan calls for major changes, including school closures, rebuilding facilities and adding enrichment programs to a number of schools. The first forum at Cedar Secondary School focused on proposed changes in the Cedar area: closing all four elementary schools in the region, moving secondary students to John Barsby Secondary School and making Cedar secondary an elementary school with an arts enrichment program. Kathie Aarsen, who has two children at Cedar secondary, worries that shipping secondary students to Barsby could lead to more dropouts. “If you’re being shipped in, you’re not connecting with anybody,” she said. “You miss your bus, you miss school, you become disinterested, you quit.” Stacey Nielsen, who has two children attending South Wellington, felt that trustees were not really listening or looking at the social aspect of community schools. Her family lives near the old Waterloo school site, but she knows the parents in South Wel-

lington because that’s where her children go to school. If the plan is approved, her children will be split up, with one attending North Cedar and the other attending Woodbank, she said. Aarsen said that Barsby is already in the optimal size range and there still aren’t enrichment programs available to those students, so she is skeptical that more opportunities would arise if Cedar students attended that school. Wendy Wise, co-chairwoman of the North Oyster parent group, said parents at the school understand the district can’t run a bunch of half-empty buildings, but they want more than one elementary school in the area and they feel that it is more logical to send North Cedar and South Wellington students to North Oyster because the building is in better condition. “If one of their schools was in better shape, we wouldn’t be adverse to moving there,” she said. The proposed timeline is to close South Wellington and North Oyster schools in June, with students moved to Woodbank and North Cedar; relocate secondary students to John Barsby in the fall of 2014; and move all elementary students to the Cedar secondary site in the fall of 2015. The meeting started with a greeting from Snuneymuxw First Nation Chief Doug White III, who told the crowd that the plan was developed without engaging with the Snuneymuxw and that the band hopes to secure federal funding to build an elementary school in the area. u See ‘FORUMS’ /4

A passerby walks around barriers put up to protect people from the potential of a building collapse on Skinner Street Thursday. Since early May, portions of the roof have been collapsing, leaving cement block walls without support. The city approved a remediation order on the property Monday for the Langley-based owners.

Decrepit building forces street closure By ToBy gorman ThE NEwS BULLETiN

The city is warning pedestrians to steer clear of a decrepit downtown building that is in danger of falling to the ground. For the past month the former Bay Theatre at 91 Chapel St. has had portions of its roof collapse, the latest on June 5, causing building inspectors concern that the exterior block walls are no longer supported and could come crashing down even in a stiff breeze. To protect residents, the city has closed a portion of Skinner Street. A section of sidewalk as well as part of an adja-

cent parkade on Chapel Street have also been closed as a precaution. “We believe there is potential for [a collapse] which is why we’ve taken the steps to go ahead with those closures,” said Dale Lindsay, the city’s manager for building inspections. The city received an e-mail on May 8 from a worker in a nearby building advising that part of the roof had caved in. Further sections of the roof have caved in since, and on Monday city council gave the building’s owner, Langleybased Loft Ministries, 30 days to deal with the issue or have the city step in and do it for

them at owner’s expense. B.C. Hydro cut power to the building on May 8. It is likely the building, originally built in 1972, will have to be demolished, though under Section 72 of the community charter owners can also bring it back up to bylaw standards. City inspectors performed six inspections between May 8 and June 5, ultimately condemning it. On May 14, Steve Vantol of Loft Ministries retained a structural engineering company, Sorenson Engineering Associates, which reported back to him on May 24. u See ‘BUILDING’ /4

Police nab couple on suspicion of vehicle theft

Nanaimo News Bulletin 3

Alberta man arrested in Nanaimo sentenced By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

Operation Find a Car Thief is being credited for nabbing two suspects believed responsible for numerous thefts from vehicles from Nanaimo’s downtown core in recent weeks. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said in a press release the operation that helped police bag the suspects was designed by Cpl. Brenda O’Sullivan of the Nanaimo Intelligence Section and involved hours of reviewing video security footage and forensic evidence, and constant monitoring of known hot spots by general duty and plain clothes members. Oliver Petersen, 43, of Gabriola Island, and Natasha Webster, 31, of Victoria, were arrested at about 2 a.m. Wednesday when they were seen walking on Front Street by a member on patrol who recognized them and arrested them for theft from vehicles. They had been identified earlier through forensic evidence gathered at various crime scenes. The suspects were held in custody on multiple charges and appeared in Nanaimo provincial court Friday. In addition to charges of theft from a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property, possession of break-in tools and various mischief charges, Petersen is also charged with break and enter to a home on Gabriola Island in April. “We are pleased and I’m sure the residents of Nanaimo and Gabriola Island are too that these two individuals have been caught and have been taken off the streets,” O’Brien said.

Casino Nanaimo’s Card Sharks put their mettle to the pedals to raise cash for the Heart and Stroke Foundation Thursday morning. They raised $7,500 for a turn on the foundation’s big bike making its way around the Island for this year’s fundraising campaign. Sara Mazzei, regional special events coordinator, estimated 18 participating local companies would raise about $40,000 during the bike’s visit Thursday and Friday.

Mounties arrest suspect in assault on dog, owner

I

ExpoSurE oN social media groups helped police identify man in alleged confrontation. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

Nanaimo Mounties have apprehended a man who allegedly attacked two dogs and a woman with pepper spray and a stick. The incident happened at Invermere Beach, an off-leash dog park in north Nanaimo, Monday at about 2:45 p.m. A woman was at the beach with two adult friends and their four dogs when a man walked by and started screaming he hated dogs. One of the dogs, a one-year-old pit bull, came within two metres of the man, who allegedly hit the animal with a stick he was carrying before pepper-spraying the dog. When the dog’s owner approached to retrieve her pet, she was also hit with the stick and pepper sprayed on the side of her face.

The man then walked toward another large group of dogs and their owners and started yelling at them about how he hated dogs. The woman who was assaulted left with her friends and dogs. She had her dog checked over by a veterinarian who determined the dog was fine and she was scheduled for X-rays of her shoulder where she was hit with the stick. A detailed description of the man was provided to police and a picture of the suspect was posted to various social media groups by those who were involved and witnessed the incident. That exposure resulted in the man being identified and information about him was forwarded to police. The 55-year-old suspect was arrested Wednesday at about 11 p.m. at his home for assault with a weapon. He was released that night on a promise to appear at Nanaimo provincial court in September and is prohibited from attending the Invermere Beach off-leash dog park or to possess any weapons.

An Alberta man arrested in Nanaimo received a sentence of 15 years in prison Thursday for attempted murder of his girlfriend. Zachary Holland, 26, was arrested in Nanaimo in early October for causing a disturbance on Doric Avenue. After doing background checks, Nanaimo Mounties discovered through fingerprint records in Ottawa that Holland was wanted for attempted murder in Edmonton following a violent attack in July against his girlfriend who he had clubbed over the head with a toilet tank lid, lit a fire in her apartment bedroom and left her there to die. The woman was seriously burned, but managed to escape the fire. That attack happened while Holland was out on bail for allegedly attacking another woman he was dating in March. She suffered multiple broken bones, cuts and bruises after he allegedly forced her into his car and dragged her by the hair as she dangled out of the vehicle. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, gave kudos to the arresting officers for following up on their “spidey senses” when something didn’t feel right about their suspect. “Just because there’s a warrant out for someone doesn’t mean an officer will know about it,” O’Brien said. “At any one time there are 300 active warrants in Nanaimo.” photos@nanaimobulletin.com

RDN consults on suites Following the completion of a background study on secondary suites as a form of housing in the Regional District of Nanaimo’s Electoral Areas A, C, E, F, G and H, the RDN board has approved a secondary suites consultation plan. Land use planning for Gabriola and surrounding islands is a function of Islands Trust, so Electoral Area B will not be part of the planning process. An online survey, informal meetings in each electoral area and community events will be some of the ways people can participate. If secondary suites are supported by RDN residents and the board of directors, the next step will be to initiate amendments to the applicable zoning bylaws and official community plans to allow for suites. More information, including a link to the online survey, is available on the project website at www.rdnsecond arysuites.ca or by phoning Greg Keller, RDN senior planner, at 250-390-6510 or by e-mailing planning@rdn.bc.ca.

Forums designed to increase input

u From /1 “We need to have a coordinated discussion about this,” he said. White’s comments were followed by critical remarks by some audience members about the format of the forum – people were divided into groups based on concerns brought up through online feedback, as opposed to trustees taking presentations in one big meeting. Jamie Brennan, school board chairman, emphasized that no decisions have been made and that trustees set up the meeting to encourage maximum input from as many residents as possible, rather than simply hearing from the 50 or 60 people who feel comfortable talking in front of a large crowd. The district sent out an invite to all of the region’s public bodies, including Snuneymuxw First Nation, to meet separately with district officials regarding the plan, he added. A second public forum happened Thursday evening at Woodlands Secondary School and two more are scheduled next week – one in Ladysmith and one at Dover Bay Secondary School. The board is expected to make a decision at its June 26 meeting. For more information on the proposed facilities plan, please go to www.sd68.bc.ca. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Building owner notified u From /1 It was determined in the report that neglect, mould, mildew and water egress are the key reasons for the structure’s current state. Vantol was notified on May 27 that council would consider a remediation order on the property. Loft Ministries said Vantol was not available to speak to the News Bulletin this week. According to a city report, Loft Ministries purchased the building in 2007, intending to use it as a church. However, it has sat unused since the purchase and, according to the report, Vantol has indicated it is for sale ‘as is’. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Directors skeptical on location of possible garbage incinerator

I

rEport comES after request from Metro Vancouver. By Neil HorNer Black Press

Is Vancouver Island going to play host to a garbage incineration facility for the Lower Mainland? Directors for the Regional District of Nanaimo believe that’s unlikely, but the possibility exists. The comments came during discussion at the board’s committee of the whole meeting earlier this month in response to a report by solid waste manager Dennis Trudeau about potential site identification for a facility to incinerate Metro Vancouver waste and turn it into energy. Trudeau said Metro Vancouver is looking to shortlist locations for a facility to process 700,000 tons of waste that need to be managed. “They’re looking at an energy facility to manage that,” Trudeau said, noting he convened a conference call with other regional districts on the Island to discuss the issue. “We decided to wait to see what Metro Vancouver is doing,” he said. “If the facility was located on the Lower Mainland, that would be one thing, but if something was located on Vancouver Island, that would be more of a concern.”

Trudeau said the result of the conference call was a recommendation to Vancouver Island regional districts to call for a detailed consultation process if there is a proposal that involves siting a WasteTo-Energy (WTE) facility on Vancouver Island. In his report, Trudeau noted that a 2009 study commissioned by the Capital Regional District, indicated that the CRD, the Cowichan Valley Regional District and the Regional District of Nanaimo would require “at least three times more waste, or 600,000 tonnes per year would be needed to make a WTE facility viable on the Island. “The study noted that there were possible Island-based WTE facilities under consideration to address possible WTE options for Metro Vancouver. In particular, one such facility was proposed to be located in Gold River, which could be cost competitive with current landfill practices in the RDN due to its large capacity.” The Ministry of Environment, Trudeau continued, had indicated to Metro Vancouver that they are to consider the full range of possible options – both in and out of the region – in an equal and fair manner. The timeline proposed would see commissioning of a plant for Metro Vancouver’s waste in 2018. Currently, residual solid waste is incinerated at a facility in Burnaby. Commenting on the report, Pleasant Valley director Maureen Young questioned

whether the request went to all regional districts in the province or just those on Vancouver Island. To this, Trudeau had no knowledge beyond that the request had gone to all districts on the Island. Alec McPherson, the director for Cedar, expressed concern about the possibility of a private company allowing such a facility on their private land, but Trudeau stressed any such project would still be subject to permitting and zoning regulations. “They would need appropriate permits for air discharge and any residuals that needed to be discharged, water or solid waste,” he said. “On the zoning side they would need appropriate zoning.” That didn’t mollify McPherson. “I get concerned when these things come up,” he said, noting he lives only a short distance away from one potential site at Duke Point. “I become very concerned when they are within 28 kilometres from where I live.” City of Parksville director Marc Lefebvre was more blunt. “When I look at the reaction to people on Vancouver Island to coal mines and smart metres, I wonder if we should be dealing with the issue of this type of operation on Vancouver Island in terms of acceptability,” Lefebvre said. “This might be a non-starter from the get-go.” editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Fundraising underway for kidney walk

I

AuguST EVENT includes run, walk and paddle.

Historical society celebrates 60th By ToBy Gorman The News BulleTiN

Running Room area manager for Vancouver Island. “We’re a leader in doing runs, so we have an opportunity to develop courses with them and get a lot of people interested with our local run groups, so that it’ll help bring out the number of people who are supporting the event and raise more funds for the charity.” Last year about 60 people who raised $15,000 took part in the Nanaimo walk, Walker said. For information or to participate, please visit the Kidney Foundation website at www.kidney.ca/ bcwalk.

Nanaimo has plenty of interesting history, which is likely why the communityrun Nanaimo Historical Society will be celebrating its 60th anniversary celebration on June 20. From early settlers to the ensuing coal mining industry, and local characters to family lineages, once a month the 50 or so members meet to discuss and record Nanaimo’s roots, as well as other interesting history on the Island and across B.C. “People who are interested in history tend to linger on, I suppose,” laughed David Hobson, society president. “For us, it’s the elixir of life. There are a lot of people here who are interested in history.” People who As the new presare interested ident, Hobson added he would in history tend like to focus more on to linger on, i specifically Nanaimo history. “We’ve had suppose. lots of authors in focusing on B.C., but my feeling is we should focus on our community. As an example, for this coming year I’m hoping to get people to come out and talk about the 100th anniversary of The Great Strike of 1912-14 which really had an enormous affect on Nanaimo and the mid-Island,” said Hobson. The strike affected coal communities from Ladysmith to Cumberland, and in 1913 became violent when homes were burned and at least one person died. The society, formed in 1953, will officially celebrate its diamond jubilee June 20 from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Bowen Park Complex by inviting city council members, Nanaimo Archive staff and other local history buffs to the event.

Representatives from five Vancouver Island chapters of Kidney Foundation of Canada – B.C. gathered at Maffeo Sutton Park Thursday to kick off the 2013 fundraising campaign for the Kidney Walk. “What we’re doing here today is the official kick-off of the five kidney walks here on Vancouver Island,” said Ron Walker, B.C. president. “Walks take place in Victoria, Cowichan Valley, Nanaimo, Courtenay and Port Alberni.” The Nanaimo walk – actually a walk, run or paddle event – happens at Maffeo Sutton Park Aug. 18. Walker said the organization is focusing this year on raising money to expand its programs to tackle kidney disease triggered by diabetes, which is on the rise in North America. There is also an emphasis this year to get more volunteers to participate and raise awareness about the spread of diabetes and its effect on kidney disease statistics. Mary Ruth Harris, Comox Valley representative, said it is currently the fastest growing disease, affecting one in 10 Canadians. An estimated 250,000 British Columbians have diabetes and many of those, she said, are not even aware they have it.

Bill Taylor, left, Running Room Vancouver Island area manager, Ron Walker, B.C. Kidney Foundation president, fifth from left, and representatives and volunteers from Vancouver Island chapters of the Kidney Foundation of Canada – B.C. gathered at Maffeo Sutton Park Thursday to kick of the 2013 Kidney Walk fundraising campaign. The walk, run, paddle event happens at the park Aug. 18.

“Dialysis is the only option,” Harris said. “There is no cure for kidney disease and if you have to dialysize, it is three times a week, up to five hours a day.” Harris said many patients from the North Island must travel long distances three times a week for their treatments. “Everybody needs volunteers and we need community support,” Harris said. “We need every size business to get behind these walks to help raise the profile and to get people out doing the walks and going out and getting sponsorship.” The walk will follow

the waterfront from Maffeo Sutton Park north to Nanaimo Shipyards and back and is divided into a 10-kilometre walk, a fivekilometre run and a paddle by Nanaimo dragon boat teams, which will paddle a parallel route to the walk on Newcastle Channel. “We start out walking around the park so that the kidney patients can participate and then drop out,” Walker said. This is the first year runners will take part in the event. “With the Running Room, one of our big things is we support a lot of charities throughout North America,” said Bill Taylor,

EDITORIAL

Pristine Island no dump site A layman’s look at the ecosystems of Vancouver Island reveal important estuaries, water-source mountain tops, prime agricultural land and vital shorelines. Not the ideal place, one would think, to locate a facility to burn garbage, let alone import the stuff from Metro Vancouver. That was a topic of discussion at a Regional District of Nanaimo’s board of directors meeting. It’s not an imminent thing, but clearly the trial balloon has been floated and it caught the attention of some officials up and down the Island. Metro Vancouver needs a place to dump its garbage. Burning that garbage to create energy sounds like a reasonable goal. Just not here, thank you very much. To be clear, there is no specific deal or site named for Vancouver’s trash. And this could end up being much ado about nothing, at least for Island residents. However, we applaud RDN solid waste manager Dennis Trudeau for bringing the issue to the attention of elected officials. A potential site for the incinerator could be Nanaimo’s Duke Point.

It would be rude to identify specific communities and regions of the province here and now, but we could easily provide a long list of B.C. locations for Vancouver’s garbage, places which are less environmentally sensitive, less reliant on tourism dollars, less beautiful.

to set up its own discriminatory barriers. The very origins of soccer, dating back thousands of years, have roots in almost all parts of the world, including Europe, Asia and South America. In the wake of this unfortunate decision, one thing is certain: the multicultural spirit is well and alive in this nation, and has been stirred to action by this ignorant decision. There has been great protest from Canadians of all colours, races and religions from across this country. One only has to visit news websites or online petitions to see that the majority of Canadians are fully opposed to the actions of the the federation. In a society that is becoming more aware of bullying and mental health problems, it is disappointing that an organization would carry out an action that runs counter to the progress that we are making on these issues. The recent action is a wake-up call to Canadians across this country that our concepts of multiculturalism and diversity must be guarded very strongly. We must never forget how imperative it is to maintain the delicate balance of fundamental freedoms and equality rights set forth in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. u Japreet Lehal is a columnist for the Surrey News Leader, a Black Press newspaper.

North-end dam jab not appreciated To the Editor,

Re: Colliery’s lakes best swim option, Letters, June 13. Neil Saunders throws out an implication that if the Colliery dams were in the north end of the city the attitude of council would be different. I find these barbs to be both petty and irresponsible. Not everyone in the north end is, for example, thrilled with all the traffic generated by the big box stores. Not everyone is rich – as with any community, all areas of the city have nice people and not so nice people, well kept properties and rundown properties. A year ago I was at a city-organized meeting where an out-of-town guest speaker made a comment about people from the north end not visiting the downtown core. I spoke up about this totally misguided and uncalled for comment. Whether the speaker heard this from a Nanaimo resident or not is beside

the point. He should have checked facts first. The City of Nanaimo has been described as being half an hour long and 10 minutes wide, but it is still one city. Please treat it as such in thought, word and deed.

Bill Gard Nanaimo

Mayor, councillors disregard viable offer To the Editor,

Re: Council unmoved on dam destruction despite impassioned speakers, June 13. At the June 10 council meeting regarding the Colliery dams, one of the nearly 40 presenters, Rick Earl, offered to have his contracting firm, CANbuild Solutions, take on risk mitigation by lowering the water levels behind the dams for a year, with siphons and pumps. He also offered an insured, bonded contract to design, demolish and rebuild the dams for $8.6 million, in the stages outlined in Coun. Fred Pattje’s

motion of a month ago, with no cost overruns or contingency risks to the taxpayers of Nanaimo. Earl represents an established bonded and insured contracting company. He also mentioned they had spoken with their bonding company and received approval for the contract offer. At one point during his presentation Coun. Diana Johnstone said this was the risk mitigation they were looking for, relating to Earl’s guarantee that his company could keep the dam water levels down through the winter and through extreme weather events. Why did the mayor, and the four councillors who voted with him, proceed as if Earl’s presentation never happened, and as if there was no way to mitigate the risk? Who specifically was advising them before the meeting, in a manner that made them feel confident to ignore the offered contract of an insured, bonded

and established contracting company, and a bonding agency behind him? Assuming the city will actually end up building new dams in accordance with Coun. Diane Brennan’s motion of a month ago (I have my doubts) how will they justify the higher costs to the taxpayers that their vote and stance on this issue will entail? Finally, how do the mayor and the four councillors justify the condescending, patronizing and paternal tone they have adopted around this issue, suggesting they alone understand risk and can manage it? On the other side of this debate stands at least one bonded construction firm, the other four councillors, including Coun. Jim Kipp, with more relevant experience than any on council, MLA Doug Routley, and the citizens of Harewood, myself amongst them. Are we all ignorant, insolent and irresponsible?

Empire’s atrocities globally hardly describes freedom To the Editor,

Re: Meaning of ‘Empire’ can be redefined, Letters, June 11. I cannot let Matt James’s letter pass without a reply. He states, “… the Empire did maintain the Commonwealth as a place of freedom.” Freedom? Freedom for the Boers, interned in concentration camps during the Boer War? Freedom for the 379 killed and approximately 1,200 wounded at Jallianwalla Bagh in Amritsar in 1919? Freedom for the hundreds of thousands of Kikuyu herded into concentration camps

– almost all of whom were badly beaten, some to death, and subjected to unspeakable tortures – in Kenya in the 1950s? Or more recently Baha Mousa, an Iraqi hotel clerk beaten to death by British troops in Basra in 2003. And the Chagossians, evicted from their homes on Diego Garcia with no compensation so the British could lease the island to the U.S. to build an air field. Only recently those Kikuyu still alive were awarded small compensation for the abuses they suffered. Freedom and Empire?

Unbelievable.

Use of fossil fuel certain for years To the Editor,

Re: LNG project a ‘political ruse’, Letters, June 8. Alan MacKinnon sounds like another disgruntled NDP supporter with extremely dire prognostications for B.C. Asian customers growing their industrial base will require fuel for their factories for years to come. While greener renewable energy is the long-term goal of all progressive countries, in the immediate future – probably 20 to 50 years – we will continue to use

fossil fuels. B.C.’s misguided thinking that we will make a significant difference in greenhouse gas emissions is ludicrous. We represent less than 0.1 per cent of the world’s population. If we were to stop GHG emissions entirely, we could not change the process already in place. MacKinnon needs to stop trying to make himself feel good and try and see all the benefits the liquefied natural gas projects will have.

District students left not knowing

on school plan underway, June 13. I think it is really unfair of the school board not to tell kids if their school is closing or not until after the last day of school. It’s really not a great way to start the summer break by telling kids their school is closing. The school board could have planned to say the news before school ends so that we would have time to adjust. I just wish the school board could make the hard decisions in a more considerate way.

Experts’ Advice bedroom furniture

Over time, your lower ridge can become receded and flat. This is known as atrophy. You may notice your denture becoming increasingly loose and uncomfortable. This problem can usually be solved by having a soft liner, made of medical grade polymer, built into your denture. Being more porous, the soft liner adheres better to whatever remains of your gum, gives your denture more stability and is less of an irritant to your mucous membranes. The cushion acts as a shock-absorber when you are chewing. It can be applied to a new denture or placed in existing dentures at the time of relining. To ensure that your new soft lining provides continued comfort as time goes by and to prevent hygiene problems, you should have it checked every year and replaced when necessary. This will extend the health of your gum, as well as ensure maximum adherence and comfort. For any questions regarding your denture needs, contact Carson Denture Clinic to book a free consultation with no obligation.

Are wood composites and veneers a good choice for furniture, if not what are JOHN ROGERS the better woods to have? Wood composites, MDF, composite board, furniture board are all fancy names for particle board, and you’ll never find them in my stores. The smallest bit of moisture or a couple of moves can really damage these products. I use only solid wood in my store. Pine is a great value wood for starting out or kids furniture, Alder makes a great suite for those wanting a hardwood but not wanting to spend a ton of money, then Oak, and finally Eastern Maple if you want the best.

Our programs creatively address peer pressure, relationships, positive body image, self-esteem and more. Our goal is to motivate, educate, and inspire other girls about health promotion, personal empowerment, and leadership. I do a lot of research on Canadian girls. Findings in a recent comprehensive Canadian report put out by the Girls in Action Foundation in Montréal can attest to the benefit of girl-specific programs. Programs designed specifically for girls can play a key protective role in their healthy development. The research states that girl-specific programs have overwhelmingly positive outcomes and benefits for participants especially programs aimed at health promotion, empowerment and leadership development. Overall, what appears to be important about girl-specific programs is that they create a safe place for girls to learn, share and build their self-esteem, confidence and a positive body-image.

• Salt is corrosive and eventually causes corrosion to pump and filter parts, structure surfaces, lighting fixtures, ladders, stairs and anchoring devices. It will also destroy concrete/ plaster surfaces and synthetic deck materials. • High pH is a common occurrence in salt water pools and spas, therefore muriatic or dry acids must be used frequently to counter balance the high pH levels. Acid can be a very dangerous substance if mishandled! • Salt water systems require servicing every 6 months. The cells are soaked in muriatic acid to remove calcification. The cell will require replacement every 3-5 years at an average cost of $500-800. For this reason, salt water chlorination is the most expensive way to sanitize your pool or spa. • Salt chlorination systems are far more harmful to the human body than conventional chlorine sanitizers because your body will absorb both the sodium and the chlorine chemicals, versus just the halogen associated with conventional sanitizers. • Salt water chlorine systems are very damaging to the environment and are banned in many areas in North America. There are many restrictions on salt water discharge, so do your research before you spend your hard earned money on costly repairs to your pool, its’ equipment and decking!

Where can I locate a new heat pump?

Heat pumps are economical heating and air conditioning options for many new homes as well as an TIM WAIT upgrade to an existing home. However, many Nanaimo residents are finding out the hard way that installing a heat pump in the wrong place can be very costly. The City of Nanaimo’s Zoning Bylaw 2011 No. 4500 NUMBER 6.5.2 requires that “Heat pumps and central air condition units must be located to the rear of a principal building and shall not be closer than 4.5 meters from the side lot lines or closer than 3 meters from the rear property line”. If you or your installer feel you are unable to install a heat pump effectively within the area required by the Zoning Bylaw due to site conditions unique to your lot, you can apply for a variance through the City. Your installer should be aware of the Zoning Bylaw requirements, after all they are the professionals; if they are not aware, it is in your best interest to inform them about the City’s Bylaw requirements before you install your heat pump. You will save yourself a lot of frustration and extra expense if you site the heat pump correctly at Building Permit stage if you are building a new home and not to try and ask for forgiveness later. Feel free to contact me if you are unsure about where to install your heat pump; I would be glad to come to your home and assist you.

How can I make sure advertising will work for my company?

What impact does untreated hearing loss have on quality of life?

Message: The essential first step in advertising is to figure out what message to send to your customers. Advertising is simply a way to send a message based on your marketing plan and sound business strategy.

There is extensive research on the impact JON WATERHOUSE, BA of hearing loss on quality of life.  This research confirms that hearing loss negatively impacts nearly every dimension of the human experience including physical, emotional and mental health, social skills, family relationships, work and school performance.  Some further consequences of untreated hearing loss include increased worry and anxiety in social situations, decreased social activity, increased frustration among family members and friends, reduced household earnings, and poorer overall health and quality of life ratings. Early detection and treatment of hearing problems can have a positive impact on your quality of life.  Call us today to book your complimentary hearing test and consultation.

Repetition: An advertising campaign is a planned appeal to the client’s potential customers, using the power of repetition. The power of repetition reinforces the advertisers message. Consistency equates with familiarity, familiarity equates with confidence and confidence equates with sales.

Canine sniffers right on the ball An ability by two border collies to find lost lacrosse balls is paying off for Nanaimo Minor Lacrosse teams. Heather Cooper has been walking Bernie and Ivy through the bushes surrounding the Nanaimo Curling Centre and the adjacent lacrosse box on Wall Street since the dogs were young and noticed they were attracted to lacrosse balls. “They are constantly finding lost lacrosse balls in the bushes so I would pass them to chil-

dren I know that play lacrosse as it is apparent many go over the fence and get lost,” said Cooper. But children are not always around the lacrosse box so Cooper, Bernie and Ivy have collected quite a few balls over the last year. “Parents tell me the balls are quite expensive, so we’re donating around 68 to a minor lacrosse team,” she said. “The funny thing is we will probably get them all back eventually.”

Student loan debts are only extinguished if your bankruptcy or proposal to creditors occurs more than seven years after the date you completed your schooling or discontinued your studies. As such, these options would not likely be considered prior to the expiry of the seven year unless you also had a significant amount of non-student loan debt that could be eliminated. Nonetheless, there is a hardship provision under the bankruptcy law which allows you to apply to the court to have the student loan debt extinguished with your bankruptcy if only five years has elapsed since your schooling ended. Under these circumstances, you would generally need to show the court that you have made an honest effort to pay the debt since the loan was granted and that you are now financially incapable of continuing to doing so.

Kids reading fun takes off This summer children will take to the skies, voyage through space, and follow authors to other worlds.

Golf pro steps up to plate in battle against ALS Brett Standerwick, golf professional at Fairwinds Golf Club, has stepped up to the plate for the ALS Society of B.C. For the past six years Standerwick has participated in the ALS Society of B.C. Golf-A-Thon, rais-

ing money and increasing awareness for the disease. This year, he set a goal of raising $5,000 toward the cause. He paid tribute to arguably one of the most historical and prominent ALS fighters, Lou Gehrig,

for whom the disease was named. Rather than teeing off with a driver, Standerwick hit his tee shots with a baseball bat, playing 184 holes – the same number as Gehrig’s single season RBI record, second all-time

in Major Baseball League history. Standerwick wore a NY Yankees jersey and hit the greens early morning, playing for almost 13 hours. “Every year I try to be creative with this cause to help increase exposure

for this event supported province-wide by the PGA of BC,” he said. He has raised $1,445 for the society and donations are still coming in. Donations for Standerwick can be made at www. golfathonforals.ca. TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

ADVENTURE AROUND EVERY CORNER AT CAMP QWANOES! For 47 years Camp Qwanoes has been inviting children from a wide variety of backgrounds to leave the everyday behind and jump into a week of adventure and friendship. “Camp is a place where kids can try things that just don’t happen in everyday life,” says Scott Bayley, Executive Director. “And it’s all in a safe place. At Qwanoes kids can be kids, kids are valued and

accepted, and fun is a big part of each day.” “Like racing a friend through the trees on parallel double zip lines! Or bouncing your friend high into the air off the blob. Or maybe just enjoying the stars at night with your cabin down at the dock.” Since 1966 kids have been experiencing these kind of adventures and a whole lot more at

Qwanoes, nestled beside Maple Mountain on a quiet bay in Crofton in the heart of the Gulf Islands. “We started 47 years ago with a few hundred kids. Now this summer we expect over 3,500... from all across Vancouver Island, Greater Vancouver, and even beyond.” “Our staff come from all over the world. This summer we’ll welcome staff from about 12

For some

countries and many provinces across Canada.” Qwanoes has grown for 25 summers and campers return year after year. “We love kids,” shared Scott. “And our desire is to provide one unforgettable week. Our staff make such a difference – our campers love them!” Qwanoes always seems to find ways to add new adventures and make each week extra special.

Bayley explains that “this year we’re adding the ‘Sky Station’ to our challenge course...we’re taking linked elements to a whole new level. Kids are going to love it!. A few summers ago we added a concrete skate park. Things like a floating super-slide, wakeboarding, rock wall climbing, a high ropes course, mountain boarding...we have about 75 activities in all.” “I know that our staff

team of almost 200 trained staff each week can’t wait to welcome our campers this summer!” Qwanoes is a Christian camp, and an ideal place for fun-filled, life-changing adventure. All are welcome and there still is some space available for this summer. Check out their summer 2013 video at www.qwanoes.ca/ summer/media. For more info: www.qwanoes.ca

Crafts for Kids Ages 7 to 10 The world is full of endless possibilities when it comes to finding crafts for kids ages 7 to 10. They can choose from an array of activities such as scrapbooking, model building, jewelry making and even tie-dying. This age group doesn’t require as much supervision as younger children and can handle more complex crafts with detailed instructions. Tips for Creating Crafts for Kids Ages 7 to 10 When selecting a craft for your 7- to 10-year-old child, make sure to find something that he or she finds exciting and interesting. For example, if doing a woodworking project, most boys would typically prefer to build a bug

box or birdhouse over a jewelry box. To successfully create crafts with your child, keep the following in mind: Have all materials available to complete the craft. Understand the directions before instructing your child. Protect your own and your child’s clothing. Have enough room to work on the project. Provide supervision, but don’t do the craft for the child. Don’t suppress the creativity; if the craft is coming out differently than you expected, that’s OK. Keep the craft project age and, if necessary, gender appropriate. Make sure the project isn’t too hard or

too simple to complete. Be sure to praise your child for a job well done. Sample Craft Ideas Kids and crafts naturally go together, so it really doesn’t take much to get kids interested and involved. You can purchase materials from a craft or dollar store, or save some money and use recycled items from around your house. You’d be amazed at what you can created from a few leftover pieces of wood, fabric, paper or even soda bottles.

Keeping kids active once the school year ends

SPECIALIZING IN CHILDREN AND TEEN SEWING CLASSES

In many ways, today’s kids have busier schedules than any previous generation of youngsters. Many extracurricular activities, including sports, require a nearly year-round commitment, and the dual-income household has landed many kids in afterschool programs where kids tend to their schoolwork or engage in various activities that keep them from resting on their laurels. But those busy schedules get a lot less hectic when the school year ends. Once school is out, kids used to a full schedule might find themselves with lots of time on their hands.

rest and relaxation during their summer break, it’s also important for kids to stay active so they don’t develop poor habits as the summer goes on. In addition, the American Psychological Association notes that kids who are physically active are more capable of coping with stress and tend to have higher self-esteem than kids who do not include physical activity as part of their regular routines. The following are a few suggestions for parents looking for ways to keep their kids active throughout the summer. Plan an active vacation. Summer is when many families go on vacation, so why not choose a vacation that involves more than napping poolside? Though it’s still good to leave some time for relaxation, find a locale where you can embrace activities like snorkeling, hiking, kayaking, or other adventures that get you and your youngsters off the poolside chaise and out exploring. Teach kids to garden. Gardening might be seen as a peaceful and relaxing hobby, but it still requires a lot of elbow grease and hard work that pays physical dividends. A garden must be planted, hoed, weeded, and watered, and gardening gets kids out of the house to enjoy the great outdoors. When growing a vegetable garden, kids might embrace the chance to be directly involved in the foods that will eventually end up on their dinner tables. Parents can embrace this as an opportunity to teach the value of eating locallyproduced foods and the positive impact such behavior has on the environment.

Go swimming. Few adults who work in offices haven’t looked out their windows on a sunny summer day and thought how nice it would be to be spending that afternoon making a few laps in a lake, at the beach or in a pool. Kids have the same daydreams during the summer, so take a day off every so often and take the kids for an afternoon of swimming. Swimming is a great activity that exercises the entire body, including the shoulders, back, legs, hips, and abdominals. In addition, swimming helps kids and adults alike maintain a healthy weight while also improving their cardiovascular health. Limit how much time kids spend watching television, playing video games or surfing the Internet. Many of today’s kids are as tech savvy as they are busy. But it’s important that kids don’t spend too much time online or on the couch watching television or playing video games. Such activities are largely sedentary, and they can set a bad precedent for the months ahead, even when the school year begins once again. Parents should limit how much time their youngsters spend in front of the television or the computer during summer vacation, keeping track and turning the TV or computer off if they suspect kids are spending too much time staring at the screen instead of being active. Kids might not love it when you turn their video games off or minimize their access to social media, but explain the limitations at the onset of summer and let kids know you expect them to be physically active even if it is summer vacation.

Gary CHARLES 4 May 1951 - 7 June 2013 With hearts broken, Patty & Ashley announce that evil cancer kicked Gary’s butt and took him too soon as they held him in their loving arms. Gary was raised to be an excellent son by his parents, Bert and Verda Charles (nee Stark) in Chilliwack. He fulfilled his boyhood dream of joining the RCMP to chase bandits among the hills of Saskatchewan and track drug dealers through the rain forests of BC for over 33 years. He met his bride, Patty Mackey in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan and they joyously raised their daughter, Ashley during four transfers throughout BC. Gary was a life-long fan of the Montreal Canadiens and BC Lions. He owned a collection of history books on Canada’s two world wars and eagerly awaited his car and watch magazine subscriptions. Gary will be remembered for perfecting his lawn-care abilities, studying Elder College courses at VIU, washing and waxing his various vehicles and enjoying a beverage while sharing his wicked sense of humour. He took early retirement to Nanaimo on his “Island in the Pacific� so he and Patty could travel to China, India and Thailand and be closer to their daughter, Ashley. Gary was predeceased by his brother, Rob; father, Bert; and his grandparents, Bill and Edith Stark and Jerome and Victorine Charles. Patty & Ashley must learn to live without his tenderness, generosity, laughter and super hugs and he will be sadly missed by his mom, Verda Friedel; sister, Janice Braun; numerous nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts and inlaws. We wish to extend our gratitude to the NRGH Cancer clinic staff and Gary’s Palliative team who cared for him with gentleness and respect. Gary requested cremation and no funeral service. He wants us all to remember ... hug your family members everyday and don’t dwell on the negative. ‘THIS BIRD IS NO MORE’ ... ‘SERENITY NOW’ Telford’s of Nanaimo (250)591-6644

In lovingmemory

Campbell, Floyd J. Passed away in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on June 10, 2013. He is survived by his family: three sons, two daughters and their families. Floyd will be sadly missed by his family and many friends. Private family cremation - No service. Condolences to the family may be made at telfordn@shaw.ca Telford’s of Nanaimo 250-591-6644

Lloyd Moseby, Kelly Gruber and Homer Bush offered encouragement as Vickers hit his long bombs. “It was just sort of an added bonus to be able to win and get my picture with the trophy and shaking Joe Carter’s hand,” Vickers said. “That was the fun stuff, but the winning itself was sort of secondary to the whole reason I decided to accept the invitation.” Last year’s event raised enough money to open up a Jays Care community clubhouse in Langley, and this month’s event will raise proceeds to rehabilitate a run-down field in east Vancouver. ◆ See ‘COAL’ /23

The decision was made at last week’s annual general meeting in Richmond. The board of governors were unable to agree on a playoff format for next season and clubs are being asked to submit proposals.

Coal Miners player wants to share passion for the game

Hopefully the senior A Nanaimo Timbermen were just saving up some goal scoring for the rest of the week. The city’s Western Lacrosse Association club suffered a tough 14-5 loss to the Langley Thunder on Wednesday in the Fraser Valley. Mike Berekoff, Cody Bremner, Ryan Keith, Doug Langlois and Adam Bakular-Evans scored for the Timbermen. Shots ended up 48-34 in favour of the home team. The Coastal Windows Timbermen visited the Burnaby Lakers on Friday night after press time and host the Coquitlam Adanacs this Sunday (June 16) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.

The Nanaimo Pirates didn’t get a chance to play the rival Royals this week, but there’s plenty more baseball on the schedule. The Hub City Paving Pirates host series baseball this weekend (June 15-16) as the Okanagan Athletics roll into town for four games at Serauxmen Stadium. Today’s start times are 3 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. and Sunday’s games go at 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Admission is $5 per game or $8 for a doubleheader. The Pirates were supposed to visit Parksville on Wednesday and although it was a clement evening, the daytime rain that day left the field too soggy to be playable.
