Nanaimo Pride events help people feel welcome I Gay aNd lesbian community celebrates diversity this week. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

Since 2003, Nanaimo Pride Week featured events that allow everyone in the city to feel welcome and accepted. This year Nanaimo’s gay and lesbian community is celebrating the 11th anniversary of the city’s first proclamation of Nanaimo Pride Week from June 16-22. “It’s just to bring the community together to express ourselves and to have some fun – and if we don’t do it who will?” said Jay Gatley, Nanaimo Pride spokesman. Robert Labonte, Nanaimo Pride president, said the week of events is also a way for Canadians to exercise and express their rights and freedoms. This year’s Nanaimo Pride Week events featured a Pride Picnic in the Park at the Bowen Park lower shelter Sunday, plus the flag raising at Nanaimo City Hall on Monday. Wednesday (June 19) is bowling night at Brechin

CHRIS BUSH/THe NewS BUlleTIN

Robert Labonte, Nanaimo Pride Committee president, left, and Jay Gatley, committee spokesman, get ready to raise the rainbow flag at Nanaimo City Hall at the 2013 Nanaimo Pride Week proclamation ceremony Monday.

Lanes on East Wellington Road starting at 7 p.m. Cost is $10 for two games plus shoe

rental. There are prizes for best and worst games and everyone is welcome.

AVI Movie Night happens at Nanaimo Centre Stage with a 7 p.m. screening of How to

Survive the Plague. The Pride Dance is being hosted at Pleasant Valley Hall Saturday (June 22) 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. Reserve tickets are $15. Labonte said the events and the pride committee are important because they are there to make everyone feel welcome, regardless of their sexual orientation. “That’s the big thing, to be able to get out in the community and let people know we’re here and let them know they do have somebody they can talk to because we handle the gay, the lesbian and the transgenders and so on,” Labonte said. “We try to steer them to the right agencies.” Labonte said the organization also supports other groups and events, such as the AIDS Walk and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes for Haven House. “Everybody has to have a best gay friend,” Gatley said. “Otherwise they don’t dress very well. We’re out there and we’re proud of who we are.” For information about Nanaimo Pride Week and events, please visit the Nanaimo Pride website at www.nanaimopride.org. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

snuneymuxw expresses concerns over dam demolition By ToBy Gorman The News BulleTiN

Snuneymuxw First Nation will meet with city officials this week to express concerns about the approach being taken on the removal and potential rebuilding of two Colliery dams and to suggest a new public process be put in place that engages all stakeholders. Snuneymuxw Chief Douglas White III said he was “totally taken by surprise” by council’s recent decision to remove the dams and rebuild them with a roughin for hydroelectric power generation on the lower dam. White said the city had consulted with Snuneymuxw officials last fall indicating it needed to remove the dams to mitigate risk to citizens should the dams suddenly fail, but said SFN was never consulted about rebuilding them. “The possibility of rebuilding the dams was not discussed with Snuneymuxw

before the city passed a resolution in May saying it would rebuild the dams,” said an SFN release. “Generally speaking building dams is a far more complicated proposition, given Snuneymuxw’s fisheries on the Chase River. Dual processes of removing the dams, and then rebuilding them, also raises new fisheries concerns.” The provincial Dam Safety Branch categorized the lower and middle Colliery dams as extreme risks after an inundation study last year revealed about 150 human lives could be lost should the dams fail in a seismic or extreme rainfall event. Council moved to remove the dams this July, a decision heavily opposed by Nanaimo citizens. An engineering report released earlier this spring said removing the dams would cost an estimated $5.5 million without contingencies, while removing them and rebuilding them would cost an estimated $8.6 million.

Given public pressure to keep the park in its current state, council defeated a motion to hold off on removing the dams until 2014 before rebuilding them in stages, but did approve the immediate removal of the dams with a promise to begin rebuilding them next summer. “I recognize this matter has gotten extremely complicated for everybody,” said White in a release. “I know the mayor, council and staff have been making strong efforts to deal with this complexity, and that many citizens are dedicating their time, intelligence and energy to this matter. Snuneymuxw’s goal remains to try to play a positive and constructive role, while also ensuring that our treaty-protected fisheries on the Chase River are respected.” Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan said there was no consultation with SFN prior to the 5-4 vote to remove and rebuild the dams because there was no clear indication which way the vote would go.

“Until I had a mandate from council there wasn’t anything to tell him,” said Ruttan. “It would have been presumptuous for me to guess in advance how council would vote.” Ruttan added that he has been in discussions with White on the issue, and when city and Snuneymuxw councils meet this week Ruttan hopes both positions can be clarified. White said stepping back and introducing a new public process that would explore alternatives would benefit everybody. “If the city and citizens are now interested in keeping the dams, then it speaks to the need for a different kind of discussion and dialogue,” said White. “All alternatives need to be explored for keeping the dams. For us that would mean bringing to the table how our treaty-protected fisheries would fit with each of those options.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Christopher Wilson, who owned a business on the first floor of the building Borden lived in at the time of the incident, also testified Thursday. Wilson was talking with a customer on the phone near the front of his appliance shop when he heard shots being fired. He hung up with the client, got his cellphone, called 911 and looked out the front door to see a man taking cover and shooting straight in front of him. “He was crouching next to the car,

arm stretched in front of him,” said Wilson, adding he knew he was shooting because he could hear the shots and see the gun jumping in front of the man, who he identified as Dockerill. After he moved away from the door, Wilson heard some rapid fire shots and he also heard someone screaming in anguish and then after that, someone calling for help. “The whole thing was very quick,” he said. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Relay for Life raises money, awareness I NEaRLy 300 volunteers and participants were part of weekend event. By Jenn M c GarriGle the News BulletiN

Tears and laughter intermingled at the Canadian Cancer Society’s annual Relay for Life honouring those who lost their battle with cancer and celebrating alongside others who won the fight. Forty teams and nearly 300 people, including volunteers, gathered at the Rotary Bowl off Wakesiah Avenue from 7 p.m. on Friday to 7 a.m. on Saturday to do laps around the track. Linda Tesser, community giving coordinator for the south Island with the Canadian Cancer Society, said 77 survivors participated, making the survivors’ victory lap at the beginning a sight to remember. “It was a sea of yellow T-shirts,” she said. Tesser said the event has raised $73,000 and counting – as of Monday at press time, the numbers were not finalized – and many participants told her they had a fun time. “Everybody’s there for a common purpose,” she said. “It’s always extremely inspirational.” Many teams dressed up for the event in everything from tie-dye to colourful, ‘80s-style spandex to capes, said Tesser. Teams also stepped up – literally – to a pedometer challenge,

with the Thrifty Foods team taking the lead by walking 19,110 steps around the track in an hour and a half. During the luminary ceremony – the only sombre part of the evening – decorated bags containing tea lights were placed along the sides of the track in remembrance of loved ones lost to cancer. Dale Mlazgar, a member of the relay organizing committee and team captain, who has lost several loved ones to cancer, said it was the only sad part of the event. “Everyone hugs because everyone’s lost somebody,” she said. On Mlazgar’s team, one member who joined just days before the event managed to raise more than $3,000 and shaved her head that night in celebration of her achievement. “I have 20 people who want to join next year,” she said. “Everyone agreed that it was just an awesome event. Lots of tears, lots of laughter, lots of walking. We all had fun.” The event ended with people writing pledges to do various things to stay healthy and cancer free, from quitting smoking to using more sun screen. “A big part of this whole thing is about fighting back,” said Tesser. The event raises money for cancer research, prevention initiatives and support for people living with cancer. For more information, please go to www.cancer.ca.

Police arrest Freemen in downtown Nanaimo

I

RCMP RECogNizEd one male wanted on outstanding warrant.

Nanaimo Mounties arrested three Freemen of the Land in downtown Nanaimo Friday morning. The arrest happened on Front Street in the Dorches-

ter Hotel parking lot at about 9 a.m. after two members of Nanaimo RCMP’s municipal traffic division recognized one of the men, who was wanted on an outstanding warrant, in the vehicle they were riding in. “Freemen are basically people who do not acknowledge municipal, provincial or federal laws,” said Const.

Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. When police pulled the mini van over the driver refused to roll his window down or acknowledge the officers. “They tried repeatedly to get his attention,” O’Brien said. “They told him verbally that he was under arrest, that he was required to get out of

the car and he refused to.” One of the members resorted to breaking the driver’s window and extracting the driver from the vehicle. When the other two men refused to exit the van they were hauled out as well. “They all had outstanding warrants for impersonating police officers,” O’Brien said. “The driver had two war-

rants and no driver’s licence. “The vehicle was also towed because it was illegally parked and it was unsecure because it had a broken window.” One of the men is from Nanaimo and the other two are from the Lower Mainland. Nanaimo police have not released the identities of those arrested.

Indoor farmers’ market closer to opening

Lease agreement must be finalized before goods can be sold to public

august is peak season and there should be plenty of producers around with product that they need to sell.

By toBy Gorman The News BulleTiN

A director of the Island Roots Market Co-op says the city’s first permanent indoor farmers’ market could start as soon as August if a written offer to lease is agreed to. Larry Whaley, one of four founding members of the project, said a verbal agreement has been made with the property owner at 540 Milton St., but a five-year lease is still awaiting finalization. If approved, the building could be ready just as the market season kicks into high gear. “August is peak season and there should be plenty of producers around with product that they need to sell,” said Whaley. “It will give people an opportunity to come down and see what I think is going to be an absolutely terrific location. It looks like a big barn, is very easy to get to and there is plenty of parking.” Last July, Island Roots Market Co-op formally registered as a co-op using the co-operative economic model and international co-op principals to address four

Vendors, artists and performers set up at Pioneer Waterfront Plaza every Friday, May to October. Local goods could be sold year-round with the advent of an indoor market.

local issues including social, cultural, economic and environmental. The intent of the market is to encourage more people to grow food locally while providing a permanent space to sell it and satisfy a growing consumer demand for local food. Dirk Becker, a Lantzville farmer and founder of the Bowen Road farmers’ market, said more and more people are trying to make a living as farmers but current seasonal outdoor markets don’t have enough room or demand

for every producer. “In short, local food is on the up, no question. We used to have one couple a year coming to us and asking ‘can you show us how to do this?’ and now we have six,” said Becker. “The modifier, the not so good part, is that the amount we’re reading and hearing about this ... is not being reflected in the amount people are purchasing. There is this gap, this leap between awareness and action.” Some new farmers, some of them in their 20s and 30s, have been

turned away from local markets because there isn’t enough demand and have had to sell their produce through farm gate sales. By providing a yearround indoor space, Becker, also a director of the co-op, said he hopes the act of shopping for local food becomes more consistent and widespread, thus increasing demand and availability. “Not just on sunny days at an outdoor market,” he said. “Buying a loaf of bread and taking it home and telling all of your

friends you buy local doesn’t pay the bills.” At off-peak times, typically November and December when there isn’t much local produce to sell, Whaley said the indoor market can continue to be an attraction by selling seasonal products like Christmas crafts. Another key goal of the market is to provide staff so farmers can spend more time farming rather than selling. “We’ll start off as a traditional market where the producers will have to be there to sell their stuff,” said Whaley. “We’ll see how that goes but I expect by next spring we’ll be offering an alternative where producers can have their items on hand at the market and we’ll provide the staff to sell it. “But our first step will be to get the market established.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Artist seeks return of damaged art piece Nanaimo RCMP are asking for the public’s help to find a wing that was broken off a carving and stolen. The theft happened June 7 between 3 and 9 p.m. The carving, located at 291 Fitzwilliam St., called Dancing with the Eagles, was created by Nanaimo carver Dan Richey and has been on display there for several years. Its owner hopes the wing will be returned since the piece can be repaired. The statute, which is of an aboriginal male in a traditional costume and weighs more than 450 kilograms, is carved from cedar and measures 2 metres by 1.5 metres. If anyone has information about this incident, please contact the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online www. nanaimocrime stoppers.com.

Canines and human companions ready to dance By Beth hendry-yim The News BulleTiN

Local dog enthusiasts are going dancing on Sunday (June 23), but not with their human partners. They’ll be taking part in the annual Island Fling in the Centennial Building at Beban Park and dancing with their dogs. More than 35 teams from across B.C. will be competing, presenting carefully choreographed routines with dogs jumping, jiving, wiggling and weaving to Katy Perry, Dead or Alive, and Celtic bagpipes. Yvonne Downey, a first time competitor, likes the creative aspect of the sport. She’s entered both her dogs, Parker, an 11-year-old Jack Russell, and Tweed, a nine-year-old border terrier. Wearing a gypsy skirt and flower garland, Downey sends Tweed, festooned with her own flower lei, spinning circles, waving and taking a bow to the beat of an old English pub song, the Lambeth Walk.

“I’ve done obedience, rally, and agility, but freestyle lets me be less serious,” said 69-year-old Downey, twirling her skirt. She isn’t the only one with a twinkle in her eye and a skip to her step in the handling ring; a group of Nanaimo Kennel Club classmates under the direction of instructor Carol Toms are also entering the competition in both freestyle and dressage. Dressage is performed on leash and involves a more structured routine to music with the dog heeling in position, incorporating minimal and basic tricks. For freestyle, the dog works off leash. The handler can be in costume and props can be incorporated into the routine. Movements and tricks are with the dog in any position but are linked by basic heelwork. “Freestyle gives you the freedom of working with your dogs without too many rules,” Toms said.

Yvonne Downey and her Jack Russell terrier, Parker, practise their routine for the upcoming Island Fling, which features trainers dancing with their dogs to choreographed routines. The event draws more than 35 teams from across the province.

Judging of the 1.5- to 3.5-minute dance involves both artistic and technical interpretation with three components: interpretation of music, how

the choreography flows, and the quality, difficulty and variety of tricks. “Handlers don’t have to be dancers or musically inclined,”

she said, adding that they can pick a song they like and add tricks to it. The dog gets the attention, the handler has fun and the bond between dog and human gets stronger. Downey added that the old adage, ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’, doesn’t fit here. Her 11-year-old, entered in both freestyle and dressage, is re-energized learning the new tricks and movements. And Toms said it’s great for the physically disabled dog, her German shepherd, Lucas, who suffered a back injury, thrived working at learning new tricks and practising the routines. “Dogs love to perform,” said Toms. “And in freestyle they’re never wrong. The judges don’t know your routine so it if all goes wrong, you can just pick it up and keep going.” Performances and judging begins at 11:15 am.

EDITORIAL

Summer break good for Tories The federal Conservative government is in serious trouble, but it has one thing on its side – time. The scandal over Senate expenses, and most crucially, over the prime minister’s chief of staff writing a $90,000 cheque to embarrassed Sen. Mike Duffy, has shaken the Stephen Harper government deeply. There are more questions than answers, and investigations and resignations have not reduced the clamour for more detail. However, there are other issues that are causing trouble for the government. One that may not seem major at the moment is the resignation of Alberta MP Brent Rathgeber from the Conservative caucus, to sit as an independent. His tipping point was the same issue that MP Mark Warawa came up against earlier this year – a private member’s bill eviscerated by the unelected staffers in the prime minister’s office. Warawa’s bill was rejected by a parliamentary committee on orders of the PMO. In Rathgeber’s case, the bill was allowed to stand, but was so fundamentally altered that it bore no resemblance to what he had proposed. For Rathgeber, who has a maverick streak, it was too much. He left the party, while emphasizing that he still respects Harper. He could be the tiny pebble who begins a landslide, or his stance may go unremarked and unnoticed by the public and other MPs. However, the Conservatives do have a few things going for them. The House of Commons is set to adjourn for the summer, and most people will completely tune out federal politics. In addition, the two opposition party leaders, Thomas Mulcair of the NDP and the Liberal’s Justin Trudeau, are unlikely to cause much damage to the government when Parliament is not sitting. They have no soapbox to stand on. The biggest thing in the government’s favour is the fact that an election isn’t scheduled until October 2015.

Not once have I heard how stunning the urban sprawl is. Clearly, green space is coveted and far more valuable in its natural state than as a subdivision. It will only become more valuable in the future as other cities develop theirs. Though hard to argue the approach that citizen safety is paramount, the way it is being wielded is dubious. Looking back in our news archives, an inspection of all municipal dams in 2010 after the Tetstalinden Dam near Oliver failed revealed all local dams were safe and sound. A later inundation study raised the alarm of the risk of dam failure. Going on that approach, as pointed out by several speakers to council, the entire city is in peril should an earthquake strike, certainly the sections built on empty mine shafts. The only downtown structures we know of that can take a good shake happen to be city hall and the new annex. There’s irony for you. Citizens of Harewood and other areas have shown that Colliery Dam Park in its current state is the heart and soul of the neighbourhood. They may not on the whole be wealthy, but are rich in pride, sense of community and appreciation for what they have. Before those dams come down, city officials need to first rebuild the trust that has been eroded and find a way to assure those they represent they will do what they say they will do. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin 9

City uses courts to avert justice Self-regulated To the Editor,

Re: Judge delays dam injunction hearing, June 11. Regarding city council’s decision to gain a court injunction against those of us opposed to the removal of the dams in Colliery Dam Park, Justice Georgina Quijano (May 28, 2004) noted in her decision not to grant the province an injunction in the occupation of Cathedral Grove that injunctions may result in the courts being used by special interests to circumvent dealing with legitimate citizens’ complaints. In her words, it “... may transform a dispute between a citizen and the government into a dispute between the citizen and the court.” There are many reasons people object to removal of the dams because they oppose further development in our drinking watershed, they fear a reintroduction of the flood plain in Harewood, they oppose the ecological damage from turning habitat for owls, osprey, turtles, crayfish etc., into mud holes or they feel the contracts to study different options should have gone to public tender instead of decided in secret. If Justice Douglas Thompson grants an injunction, these issues will be ignored and those who actively oppose removal will be guilty of contempt of court. The use of the court system to subvert justice in the service of special interests is particularly well known to First Nations and environmentalists. Jim Erkiletian Nanaimo

Failure to rebuild will destroy park To the Editor,

Re: Council unmoved on dam destruction despite impassioned speakers, June 13. It’s disappointing that the Nanaimo mayor and four councillors voted to tear down the dams this summer without at least taking the time to present the alternate plan, proposed by Coun. Fred Pattje, to the provincial Dam Safety Branch for consideration.

NEWS BULLETIN fILE

Past decisions show the courts are reluctant to issue injunctions, such as the one pending on Colliery Dam Park, when it comes to legitimate public complaints, says letter writer.

Instead the dams will be removed without any plan in place for their proposed replacement. Council was presented with a plan to mitigate the risks, replace the dams for a reasonable fixed price and promised the help of NanaimoNorth NDP Cowichan MLA Doug Routley. Not interested. City staff and council haven’t done their homework, consulted with the Snuneymuxw First Nation, the DFO or Dam Safety Branch. There are no guarantees once the dams are removed that there will be any approval to rebuild them. If the dams are removed this year, the chances of a rebuild are slim to none. This is also the worst possible option for the Chase River fishery. Leaving two mud holes over winter will increase the likelihood of sediment destroying the spawning beds downstream. This is a recipe for huge budget overruns. To protect the fishery, the work of removing the dams and then either replacing them or renaturalizing, needs to be completed in the dry months. The dams are the summer vacation spot for many underprivileged kids in the

south end of Nanaimo whose parents can’t afford or aren’t able to drive them to other swimming locations like Nanaimo River, Westwood Lake or the beaches in the north end. They’re the most important reason to keep the lakes in the park. This is reminiscent of the Vancouver Island Convention Centre fiasco where staff and council moved forward with construction and then realized the project wasn’t eligible for federal funding once construction had begun. Staff and council need to develop a plan and seek the approval of Snuneymuxw, the provincial and federal governments before moving forward. They need to practise due diligence.

really run the city – untouchable, but certainly are not elected? It is time for change with the way governments are set up in this province and this country. We have seen what happened in Europe, the Middle East and now Turkey when the people are not heard. The standing-room only crowd which packed Nanaimo’s council chamber last week proves we’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take this anymore. The number of closed-door decisions, hidden facts, half-truths and now threat of jail upon its citizens must end. Those in power – they know who they are – have indeed created a summer of discontent.

Council created public discontent

Politicians brush off transparency

Paul Manly Nanaimo

Kevan Shaw Nanaimo

To the Editor,

Re: Council unmoved on dam destruction desite impassioned speakers, June 13. One of the key principles of municipal government in the Community Charter is, “authority to determine the public interest of their communities, within a legislative framework that sup-

ports balance and certainty in relation to the differing interests of their communities.” The problem is, as is evident in the Colliery Dam Park dams matter, that Nanaimo has no effective process to carry out this principle. This is especially evident when it comes to costly and controversial projects. There has been much talk of openness, transparency and consultation, but there has been little action. And when the going gets tough, the tendency is to revert to the old ways of secrecy and expediency. There is a more practical approach to dealing with controversial public issues like the Colliery dams which is called ‘public dispute resolution.’ The following is a quote from “The Public Disputes Program” offered by Harvard Law School. “There are all kinds of public disputes happening at every level of governance. At present, they are either worked out behind-the-scenes by top level political decision-makers, become the focus of long and costly litigation, or find their way on to the legislative agenda. “While each of these approaches has its strengths and weaknesses, the typical outcome often seems unfair or unresponsive to the groups and individuals most involved. Often, a great deal of time and money is wasted. While the least objectionable result often emerges, this usually means that outcomes that would be better for everyone are left undiscovered. “Finally, the best scientific and technical advice is brushed aside as the politicians maneuver for short-term electoral advantage.” This is an example of a program the city could investigate and adopt to try and get out of the persistent negative spiral it finds itself in with various constituencies of the public. Fred Kardel Nanaimo

learning been around for years To the Editor,

Re: Students learn their own way, May 21. As an educator, it was with delight and joy that I read the article on selfregulated learning -- delight for the children who are being allowed to learn at their own pace on their own terms, and joy for the teachers who are discovering the huge benefits of self-regulated learning. However, I would like to clarify one thing. Self-regulated learning is not new. Many years ago, Maria Montessori observed this capability in children and developed an education system to support it. Montessori education has always recognized children learn in different ways, and accom-

modates all learning styles. Students are also free to learn at their own pace, each advancing through the curriculum as they are ready, guided by the teacher and an individualized learning plan. There are no desks and students are not expected to keep still. Montessori educators have been facilitating self-regulated learning for more than 70 years. It is neither antiquated nor a product of the 1970s. I invite any teachers or parents interested in learning more about how self-regulated learning environments work, to give us a call and come observe a classroom.

Federal politicians failing constituents To the Editor,

Re: ‘I won’t answer to the PMO anymore:’ Alberta MP Rathgeber, News Bulletin Daily, June 7. Brent Rathgeber quit the Conservative caucus saying “we’re not going to vote like trained seals.” Finally, a politician with principles. It’s no wonder the number of voters keeps decreasing every election. Perhaps it’s because governments have usurped democracy and replaced it with oligarchy. They no longer represent the will of the people, but their party’s agenda. We vote believing MPs will represent us, their constituents. Instead they blindly follow – like trained seals – the dictates of their leader, otherwise risking being ousted from caucus. Democracy will be restored only if parliaments return to secret ballots. This way MPs will be able to vote on important issues according to the will of their constituents. I have decided never to vote again until democratic principles are restored. I am an old-school immigrant with more than 45 years in Canada and I take my oath to protect this country seriously. Under the present system, it is possible for Prime Minister Stephen Harper to commit Canada to foreign adventures such as war or to treaties that could undermine the nation’s sovereignty.

ax Dowie loves to turn people into somebody

else. His interest in creating different characters started at an early age. His father was a circus clown and got Dowie in on the act when he was a child. Then as he got older he continued his artistic interest. Add to that a love of Halloween and his career as a makeup artist took off. One day when he was looking through some art books on his shelf he asked himself the question ‘what am I

doing with my life?’. That led Dowie to make the decision to attend the Vancouver Film School where he took makeup design for film and television. “I really enjoy it. I enjoy turning people into other people,” he said. “It’s like the whole mission impossible Spy vs. Spy thing. It allows me to create characters without having to portray them.” During the makeup course he learned how to make masks and various techniques to turn people into monsters, zombies or other people. ◆ See ‘FILM’ /23

Aries

Taurus

Gemini

Cancer

Leo

Virgo

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you may have a difficult time taking sides when friends ask for your help in settling a dispute. Let your friends know you prefer to stay out of the squabble.

Libra

Scorpio

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you are in need of some down time, so plan a weekend jaunt or a brief vacation to relax and recharge your batteries this week. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 It would normally be quite an effort to pull the wool over your eyes, Cancer. However, in the next few days you will be so distracted with other things that fooling you is possible. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, take a few days to act foolish, throw caution to the wind and have a good time. If you don’t, there may not be another such opportunity anytime soon.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, sometimes practicality gets in the way of your imagination. Though this can sometimes be stifling, you have to find a balance between whimsy and reality. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 No one can put your plan into action better than you, Scorpio. Stop making excuses and really get started this week. Don’t expect immediate results.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, you may not feel that something you did is funny, but others are bowled over with laughter. Play along so you don’t come across as a spoil sport.

Capricorn

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Expect your schedule to become quite hectic in the next few days, Capricorn. You may want to tie up any loose ends now and use any free time to rest.

Aquarius

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, the only way to get through a bumpy week is to keep your head down and your focus intense. Concentrate on the tasks at hand, and the week will be over before you know it.

Pisces

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, a burst of energy has you flying through all of those little projects that you have been putting off. Once you are done, you may have to create a new list. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, though you feel like you have just been going through the motions, others are far more impressed than you think.

u From /21 “Going to the school was like visiting heaven,” said Dowie. “Everyone was artistic and knew how to communicate in the same respectful way. All of my teachers worked in the movies.” During school Dowie worked on several projects, including one called Alice in Wasteland. He said the prosthetic makeup he created for that project was his favourite. “I took tweedledumb and they were mutated. It was awesome stuff. We had false teeth for them and contacts and it totally changed the actors’ look.” Dowie doodles a lot and turns these into ideas for monster makeup. Dowie said a true makeup artist will work with the attributes of the actors because the rubber and silicone will change the shape of someone’s face but because it’s stiff the movement isn’t the same as an actors skin. He loves to show people how they can be transformed into something else. “There is always the reaction of people around me. They have a little sparkle in their eyes,” he said. “It makes me feel like I am doing my job right.” People can learn the tools to transform others into zombies or monsters or just change their appearance to look like someone else during

SR. A LACROSSE squad loses 9-6 to Coquitlam Adanacs. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Timbermen didn’t do enough of the little things right to start building a win streak. The Coastal Windows Timbermen senior A lacrosse team won one of its two weekend games, defeating the Burnaby Lakers 16-11 on Friday on the road before losing 9-6 to the Coquitlam Adanacs on Sunday at Frank Crane Arena. The T-men gave themselves a chance against the Adanacs, scoring three times in the third period to make the score 7-6 with more than 10 minutes left. But penalty trouble hurt the home team down the stretch, and the T-men also lamented the oppor tunities they’d missed all game long. “We’re making little mistakes like missing passes, missing catches, missing throws, missing loose balls, missing the net,” said Paul Brebber, T-men forward. “And those are the little things you need to win a game.” It was the third game in five nights for the Timbermen, and the busy schedule had taken a toll – forwards Cody Bremner and Ryan Keith were both out injured. “The offence did struggle tonight,” said Kaleb Toth, the team’s coach, after Sunday’s loss. “They were dropping the ball a lot, making missed passes. I don’t know what that attributes to; it’s not just because Bremner was out of the lineup.”

Coquitlam Adanacs player Ryan Johnson, left, checks Nanaimo Timbermen opponent Jake Emms during the third period of Sunday night’s Western Lacrosse Association game at Frank Crane Arena. The visitors won 9-6.

It was a bit of a step back for the offence, said the coach, after a 16-goal outburst two nights earlier. The Timbermen can’t always rely on winning a goaltender’s duel, Toth said. “That can’t happen every single game. We’ve got to get three or four goals on transition, we’ve got to get six or seven on offence and then hopefully beat teams by getting 10 or 11

goals and holding them to nine or 10.” Brebber led the Timbermen with a hat trick on Sunday and Blake Kenny, Graham Palmer and Myles Dennett were the other scorers. Zak Boychuk made 32 saves in defeat. In Friday’s victory over the Lakers, Bremner had four goals and two assists and Brebber had two goals and four assists.

Doug Langlois had two goals and three helpers in that one, Graham Palmer had two and two and Jake Emms also had a two-goal game. Cayle Ratcliff, Myles Kenny, Kyle Dexter and Dennett were the other scorers and Boychuk made 43 saves.

Pirates can’t get timely hits in close games against A’s

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Pirates batter Alex Rogers has to duck under a pitch, spoiling a squeeze attempt during a game Sunday against the Okanagan Athletics at Serauxmen Stadium. The Pirates won 2-0 after losing the first three games of the series.

The Premier Pirates actually had all facets of the game working well – it’s just that their timing was a little off. The Hub City Paving Pirates got strong pitching, error-free defence and plenty of hits, but still lost three of four against the Okanagan Athletics on the weekend at Serauxmen Stadium. The A’s won 3-2 and 2-1 on Saturday, then took Sunday’s early game 3-2 before the Pirates stepped up and shut out the opposition 2-0.

“We were getting our hits, but we weren’t getting our hits when it counted, with runners in scoring position,” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. “It’s a mentality you go up there with. Do you want to be in the spotlight when the game’s on the line? It’s hard to teach because it’s the mental part of things.” The Hub City Pirates were able to end off on a positive as they took advantage of some A’s mistakes to build an early advantage in Sunday’s finale. ◆ See ‘PIRATES’ /31

Acme T-men win two more, extend streak The Acme Timbermen handled the challenge of back-to-back games to keep up their winning ways. The Nanaimo Timbermen senior B lacrosse team won both its weekend games at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, defeating the North Shore Indians 17-8 on Saturday and then beating the Langley Warriors 14-6 on Sunday. The Indians are an improved team this season, but the Acme Painting T-men won comfortably and then overmatched the Warriors the next day even without playing their best game. “We’re trying not to play to the other team’s level,” said Aaron Vanderhorst, T-men veteran. “We’re still struggling with putting together a full 60 minutes but we’re doing enough to win and most of the time we win handily.” Mike Maughan, the team’s coach, said he’s asking his guys to play a complete game, with strength on offence, defence and goaltending. “We’re trying to be as sharp as we can all the way through the game and not have as many lulls, or defensive letdowns or bad penalties, things like that,” Maughan said. In the win over the Indians, Blair Pinnock scored four goals and Kyle Noble had a hat trick. Rick Fields, Dylan Benard and Shane Chalker had two goals each and Jon Diplock and Russell Thomas each contributed a goal and three helpers. Danny Walters earned the win. Pinnock had another four-goal game on Sunday and Noble had two goals and three assists. Fields, Diplock and Cody Keating scored two goals apiece and Pat Mallough was the winning goalie. GAME ON … Nanaimo (8-1) will put its fivegame win streak on the line against the Tri-City Bandits (5-3) on Saturday (June 22) at 6:30 p.m. at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

Marina Hammocks dances at V.I. Raider Girls dance team auditions Sunday at Beban Park Social Centre. The 2013 team was selected that afternoon and will begin practising this week.

V.I. Raider Girls make the team It was only auditions, and still, the V.I. Raider Girls looked ready for the opening kickoff of the season. The V.I. Raiders junior football club’s dance team put together its roster Sunday at auditions at the Beban Park Social Centre. Matthew (Snoop) Blokker,

coach of the V.I. Raiders, said he congratulates this year’s Raider Girls and expects them to meet the high standards the dance team has established over the years. “The Raider Girls, since we’ve started, they’ve been a huge thing for our program and we believe that. I think it’s

a big part of our fans’ enjoyment and it’s part of football,” Blokker said. “You compare them to the other dance teams in the other programs just like you compare your football team, and they have the same attitude as us, and that’s win. And we feel we have the best dance team in the league.”

Mid Isle soccer draws with Vic Sometimes a tie game can be pretty exciting, and that was the case this weekend at the soccer pitch. The Mid Isle FC Highlanders scored in the dying seconds of injury time on Sunday at Merle Logan Field to earn a 2-2 draw with Victoria United. Colin Knight scored the tying goal on a cross that sailed over the opposing goalkeeper and into the corner of the net. It came with all of Mid Isle FC’s forces up pressing for the tying goal. “We played well. We should have put the game away in the second half … We let them come at us,” said Bill Merriman, the team’s coach. Dylan Mans opened the game’s scoring on a penalty kick in the first half and then the visitors tallied twice midway through the second half. Neither of the Mid Isle FC Pacific Coast Soccer League teams play in Nanaimo again until July 6, but the women’s side hosts Kelowna United on Saturday (June 22) at 4 p.m. at the Ladysmith turf field.
