Guns and drugs seized in Duncan

Four arrested: Police raid Island Highway rental property Peter W. Rusland

oke, cannabis, cash and four suspected criminals were collared during a police raid on a Duncan residence, the RCMP say. The June 5 bust saw North Cowichan/Duncan Mounties, assisted by a federal policing partner, execute a high-risk search warrant for drugs on a rental property, a police media release says. Police attended the residence on the Trans-Canada Highway, where the four suspects were arrested. “Several items were seized, including 60 marijuana plants, 10 pounds of bagged marijuana bud, a quantity of cocaine, and other drugs. “Also seized were two firearms — one a modified SKS 7.62 mm semi-auto rifle with over-capacity, prohibited magazines, and one 12-gauge, modified shotgun — and a substantial amount of cash,” the RCMP release reads. “This type of search is risky for the police, as there is often a presence of guns with drugs.” The four accused were released. They face charges of possession for the purpose of trafficking, production of a controlled substance, possession of a prohibited weapon, and other weapons-related charges North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP request residents with information about this crime, or others, to contact police at 250-748-5522, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). You do not have to reveal your identity to Crime Stoppers. If you provide information to Crime Stoppers that leads to an arrest or the recovery of stolen property or the seizure of illicit drugs, you could be eligible for a cash reward.

Emergency crews responded to an industrial accident at the Chemainus River bridge construction site at 2:14 p.m. Tuesday after reports a man had been electrocuted. The patient was flown to Victoria General Hospital. “He was breathing and conscious when he left,” said North Cowichan/Duncan Cpl. Greg Pask. “He’s very lucky that’s all that happened.” The extent of the man’s injuries weren’t known at press time. WorkSafe BC was enroute to assess the accident scene.

solution is pending for some of the dozens of families left without childcare in the wake of the recent reorganization of the Cowichan Valley School District. Folks with children using the before and after school care program at Ecole Duncan Elementary are awaiting confirmation of a school district plan to reinstate before- and after-school care programs cut adrift amidst school closures and program shifts. B.C.-appointed trustee Mike McKay confirmed superintendent of schools Joe Rhodes and acting director for elementary education Sheryl Koers are working on a solution.

“We appreciate (parents) reaching out to staff and me, and it’s a big deal and we get that,” said McKay Tuesday. “It’s one of the pieces of the puzzle we’re working through.” Koers indicated staff have made sure Mt. Prevost school has enough room for the former Duncan Elementary care program and are waiting on approval from licensing before a tendering process takes place. She’s hopeful the program can take on as many children as did at Ecole Duncan. But they are forced to follow a formal public tendering process before anything can be confirmed. Other childcare programs are expected to be available at Bonner and Discovery. A fourth school will not be so lucky. Koers confirmed the pre-school and before- and

after-school program run by Mark Sorenson for seven years at Drinkwater Elementary has been axed since that school is now “jam-packed” and the space was needed for an influx of students next year. “There are many private day care providers with services in this area,” assured Koers, noting Mt. Prevost school and its pending program is very close to Drinkwater. “And we’ve been seeing on Facebook many of these day care providers with messages saying they have spaces.” Parent and Ecole Duncan El PAC president Adam Clutchey said parents were furious about initial indications their program, servicing roughly 80 to 85 families on an on-and-off basis, would be lost. more on page 5

Six-hour police stakeout in Chemainus ends in peaceful arrest

Details were still sketchy at press time about Monday’s early morning arrest of an unarmed man near his Chemainus home. He was collared by RCMP tactical-squad members at about 2:15 a.m. after a female was allegedly assaulted earlier that day at the home. She was treated at hospital for minor injuries, and the cops were told the male suspect had

access to guns in the home, explains Tuesday’s release by Cpl. Jon Stuart of North Cowichan/ Duncan’s detachment. “Officers made repeated attempts over several hours to communicate with the suspect, believing he may still be inside the residence. “The officers, along with police dog services, contained the residence,” explains Stuart.

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 3

“As there were firearms reported to be at the disposal of the male, and there were threats of their use, the Emergency Response Team (ERT) was contacted and deployed to the scene.” About six hours after their 8:30 p.m. callout, swat-squad members found and arrested the suspect in nearby brush.

trends.” Cowley also gave huge kudos to all staff involvement as well as parent work in continuing school success stories. “Our report card consistently shows that school improvement is occurring all over B.C. from Prince George in the north to Grand Forks in the south and everywhere in between,” he outlined in a media release. The report card rankings on B.C.’s schools rates 284 public and independent schools based on seven indicators using data from the annual provincewide exams administered for the B.C. Ministry of Education, as well as graduation and grade-to-grade transition rates. The report card also includes important information about each school’s make-up, including parents’ average income, the percentage of ESL students, and the percentage of special needs students. LCSS principal Nicole Boucher could not be reached for comment by press time.

uicide’s been a secretive word among Cowichan Tribes’ members — until Saturday. That’s when three members of the Heliset Hale Marathon reached Cowichan territory for a hero’s welcome for bringing the painful issue to light. “Suicide is a taboo to our people,” said John Sampson, flanked by runners Bernice Smith and Kelly Paul at the Qwu’utsun’ Cultural Centre. “We’ve swept it under the carpet for too long now. We have to keep the word ‘suicide’ open; let’s talk about it, let’s understand we’ve lost too many friends and family.” Growing tragedy among Cowichan people in crisis prompted Chief Harvey Alphonse to call a state of emergency among his people after 60 suicide alerts by May 2012. Four had ended in death a year

ago. The elders explained last year the band’s suicide alerts had risen by more than 2 1/2 times in the five years previous. Current suicide figures among Cowichan people were unavailable by press time. And it was unknown how much funding Health Canada had given Tribes toward suicide programs since last May. But the community responded as Smith honoured feelings before figures about troubled people taking their lives. “This is a spiritual journey,” she said of the 535-kiometre suicideprevention awareness run, from Port Hardy to Victoria, that began May 18. “Running is my form of prayer.” Runner Kelly Paul shared her prayers about helping folks who’ve taken their life, or are contemplating doing so. “Awaken life within you. This run’s about people being proactive rather

than reactive,” she said. “Were sharing the same pain and the same joy. When we make strong individuals, we make strong communities.” Cowichan elder Arvid Charlie agreed. He expressed dismay his people were told, starting back in 1880s, they were unfit to teach their kids the cultural ways of their ancestors. “Where does teaching start? When do we start teaching our children? As soon as they’re born,” he told the QCC crowd that included Tzinquaw Dancers, and the Cowichan Spirit Drummers. Charlie explained suicide isn’t the right path to the hereafter for anyone. “You have to earn that place, before you get there.” The three runners left Cowichan’s Si’em Lelum Gym Monday at 9:30 a.m. on the final leg of their journey to the capital.

school. Although this year’s 5.9 ranking is a slight dip from last year’s 6.3, the school’s track record during the past five years was enough to land it in top spot. In 2008, it scored just a 3.2. Fraser Institute spokesperson Peter Cowley indicated the school is a prime example there’s always room for improvement. “This is a very important story for this school,” Cowley said Tuesday about results released Monday. “There’s actually something going on there. “And what I normally find with schools that have seen and sustained improvement, is that they have strong leadership. It’s the leadership who will say, ‘this is my vision of the school and this is what we’re going to do well.’ This is a person who has to motivate, mentor and nurture. It’s the principal who’s going to be the spark.” LCSS boasted a 100 % graduation rate for 2009 to 2011. This year’s figure fell to 97.1 % but that is still a vast improvement from 2008’s 88.9 per cent. Meanwhile, this year’s average exam marks rose to 67.1% per cent from 64.6%. “Sometimes it can a little bit of a deflator when the marks are a little bit down, but with any graph you see, when it comes to stocks or whatever, it never goes straight,” explained Cowley. “What we’re looking for, from the basic analysis based on five years, is for the

everal people, including children, were injured in Saturday’s threecar crash at Bench Road and the Trans-Canada Highway. Cause of the wreck, and nature of the injuries were unknown at press time, police reported Monday. The MVI happened at around 2:30 p.m. under sunny skies. Mounties, paramedics and Cowichan Bay firefighters attended the collision that closed the northbound lane, at the Bench Road lights, opposite the former Galaxy Niteclub site, for at least an hour. “A southbound vehicle turned in front of a northbound vehicle,” Cpl. Jon Stuart of the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment said Monday. “The northbound vehicle struck a southbound vehicle as it cut across in front of it. The southbound vehicle spun, striking a vehicle waiting at the light on Bench Road. There were several minor injuries in the two main vehicles.”

Paramedics and Cowichan Bay firefighters help one of at least four people hurt during Saturday’s three-car crash at Bench Road and the Island Highway. One car stopped about 100 yards north of the intersection, where a male was loaded into one ambulance. Another car was crumpled at the intersection, where at least three youths were helped at the edge of the Save-On Gas station parking

“The program has grown so much over the last few years since the two current staff working there have worked very hard to promote it and grow the centre like it’s their own kids,” explained Clutchey in an email to the News Leader Pictorial. “We had hope, (and) didn’t think they would actually make a decision like this and hurt our children,” wrote Clutchey. He and other parents penned a petition to keep the daycare going as well as to employ the two “wonderful daycare ladies” from Ecole Duncan at Mt. Prevost. For single mother of two, Chelsea Toth, transferring the two staffers from Ecole Duncan’s program to Mt. Prevost should be cut and dried. “Those two women there are absolutely amazing and loving,” said Toth who works in the forestry industry and uses both the before and after school options at the daycare with her daughter. “In my opinion, the process should be streamlined to move the two ladies there. It would make everything so much easier and so much less stressful for parents this summer.” “It has hurt our school,” said Clutchey in his email, noting spirits have been down while waiting on confirmation of the new system. “This is an important part of our school program, the kids love the centre and now it’s being taken away. “Our school needs this important piece of growing our French immersion program.”

Ducks and dog factor into pair of south Cowichan weekend crashes Peter W. Rusland

nimals were a common theme in two separate, south-end crashes during the weekend, Mounties say. Drunk driving is also suspected in Saturday’s crash. That 9:45 a.m. wreck saw Shawnigan Lake RCMP, paramedics and the Mill Bay firefighters attend a single-vehicle accident in the 3200 block of Cobble Hill Road. “The 21-year-old female driver from Shawnigan Lake advised police she was traveling eastbound, and swerved to miss a dog, causing the vehicle to go in to the southside ditch — taking out some small trees, and part of a fence,” Shawnigan RCMP’s Cpl. Rob Webb said.

Two women were injured in south Cowichan when this Ford SUV left the road Saturday. The driver, suspected of impaired driving, said she swerved her vehicle to avoid hitting a dog.

“The front female passenger had to be extracted from the vehicle with the Jaws of life.” The other female passenger, fainted after getting out of the crumpled Ford SUV, fainted. Both women were taken to Cowichan District Hospital with minor injuries. Charges of impaired driving, and over .08 blood-alcohol level are being recommended against the driver, Webb said. Sunday’s 3 p.m. five-vehicle incident saw cops and first-responders answer the wreck near Chapman Road and the Trans-Canada Highway. “Three vehicles slowed for a group of ducklings crossing the highway, when a fourth vehicle rear ended the car in front, causing a domino effect,” explained Webb. “This caused another vehicle to

swerve and hit the meridian. “A sixth car travelling through the area at the time, a grey Honda Accord, swerved and ran over several of the ducklings, then continued on.” The aftermath closed southbound, TCH traffic for approximately an hour while vehicles were re-routed. “Fortunately, only minor injuries were reported by the vehicle occupants, all of whom were treated at the scene,” he said. “A short time later, the grey Honda Accord was reported to be hitting pylons on the top of the Malahat in the construction zone area.” West Shore RCMP intercepted that car, and the 47-year-old female driver from Saanich is being investigated.

It’s a mistake to set Kerry Park up for failure

Renovation option: Taxpayers don’t want to spend $14.4 million on a makeover

W

e’re certain the Kerry Park Recreation Commission believes a referendum on a $14.4-million community centre upgrade is the right thing to do. We could even be persuaded the results of all that community consultation could — in the right light — be interpreted as a community desire to go all in on the most expensive option. What we can’t figure is why commissioners would want to set themselves up for failure, a failure that will push Last vote their Kerry Park renovation project back another three to five years. should have Or did they learn nothing from the sent a mesprevious Kerry Park referendum? Some are skeptical the facility’s probsage lems are as drastic as they are made out to be, but no one disputes Kerry Park is aging and could use an overhaul. What they are disputing is spending enough money to essentially remake the facility into something much grander. Witness recent renovation projects on other facilities of similar vintage: Fuller Lake Arena and the Cowichan Lake Sports Arena. Both these facilities underwent upgrades during the past decade that helped address physical issues, but also let them adapt to changing community demand. The most expensive of these two projects, Cowichan Lake, cost the taxpayers $7.6 million, or barely over half what the Kerry Park project is expected to cost. And the result is a beautiful, functional, useful facility the community can be proud of. That’s all the work that’s needed in the south end. And the voters already sent that message to planners in the last referedum. When someone bakes you some dessert, you don’t ask for the whole pie; a slice is just fine.

We say:

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

This we like

It’s nice to see the fledgling TV series Spooksville settling into the valley so nicely, with its latest venture turning parts of downtown Chemainus into zombie central. Film Cowichan has done a nice job marketing our area and this is the type of production that could generate a steady boost to our economy, rather than the one-week hit of the typical movie crew.

Nick Purcha, right, and the cast and crew of Spooksville are enjoying the valley.

hould we be exploring new approaches to economic development on Vancouver Island? That argument is being put forward by Adrian Legin, president and CEO of Coastal Community Credit Union. Legin participated last year in an economic development tour of Emilia-Romagna, a region of northern Italy that has long fascinated experts for its success in creating one of the world’s wealthiest and most democratic societies. And according to Legin — who recently gave a talk on this topic at Vancouver Island University’s Cowichan campus — we ought to be looking at Emilia-Romagna for ideas in creating a more prosperous economy on Vancouver Island. Since re-building their economy on top of the rubble of the Second World War, Emilia-

Romagna now enjoys one of the highest levels of per capita wealth in Europe – 50% above the national average. It has also built a thriving manufacturing sector, and is known for a strong entrepreneurial culture, with one of every 10 citizens owning their own business. Most of these firms are small- to medium-sized, as only a handful of businesses employ more than 500 workers. Most of these larger companies are co-ops. Why has the region been so successful? It is characterized by unusually high levels of co-operation between businesses, and this has given them an advantage in competing on the global economy. It has also invested heavily in universities and technical schools, specializing in high quality artisan products, and developing shared service support organizations in such areas as human resources, legal services and accounting. This allows smaller firms to pool resources and focus their attention on producing world class-products.

The biggest cliche in the newswriting world is “Christmas in July.” But it is one cliche the Cowichan Valley Basket Society would like to see attached to its name in print in the near future. For all the support the food bank gets in December, it is equally certain that support falls off in June. People are hungry all year round. Please give them your support.

Additionally, firms generally stay very small and focused on their particular area of specialization. The average company has four people, and businesses are often broken up to form spin-offs before they get too big. While Emilia-Romagna’s thousands of firms do compete with one another, they are also known for high levels of co-operation and trust. This allows them to compete in the global economy. Finally, Emilia-Romagna has created one of the world’s strongest brands. The region is well known for producing the highest quality goods – cheeses, wines, meats, balsamic vinegars, leather goods, luxury cars and ceramics. So how is this relevant to Vancouver Island? Both are known for their natural beauty and ability to attract skilled people who want to stay, as well as thousands of small and medium-sized businesses, highly talented

artisans and dynamic agricultural sectors. Vancouver Island, however, could learn much from Emilia-Romagna in developing a regional economy that better leverages our rich natural resources while providing young people with sufficient economic opportunities to stay in their communities. A good start, Legin explains, would be in encouraging greater co-operation between local businesses, providing shared services for smaller firms, and developing a stronger regional brand to allow our businesses to better market their products globally. Emilia-Romagna has provided a vision. Now all we need to do is act on it. Rob Douglas writes monthly for the Cowichan News Leader Pictorial. He can be reached at douglas.robert.g@ gmail.com

Do you support Duncan council seeking another movie theatre for the city? “It’s a good idea. The one we have is kind of run down, so a new, bigger one would be better and maybe have comfier seats.”

Thank you, dad

Timbercrest nearly 40 years old

Dear editor A few corrections to your recent article on the Timbercrest subdivison: the controversy stretches back to 1975 when the excellent farmland was removed from the ALR by Cabinet because the Agricultural Land Commission refused the removal. Furthermore the developer did not pitch the bridge, North Cowichan made the road and bridge a condition of further subdivision approvals. In fact, every lot sold paid a percentage into the bridge building fund. Fortunately council made the developer spend the fund on lowering Lakes Road where it meets Trillium Terrace. The Somenos Marsh Society would like a pedestrian crossing built to encourage pedestrian and biking shortcuts to transit and town. Paul Fletcher, Duncan

Families air their dirty laundry Life skill lacking: Cowichan observers not doubting stats that show B.C. teens have worst laundry competency in the country

S

ort, wash, dry, fold and put away. It’s a vicious cycle. And apparently it’s one teenagers in B.C. hate doing. As part of a survey commissioned by Maytag Canada, B.C.’s young folk are ranked among the lowest in knowing how to do their own laundry and the highest in having a poor attitude toward the chore. Fortunately for Cowichan parents Nancy and Brad McNeil, that’s not the case in their household. “Katrina has been chipping in to help with laundry since she was 10,” Nancy said of her daughter who’s graduating from high school. “As working parents, our philosophy is that every member in the family needs to chip in to make the home

run smoothly. Our daughter Katrina has been contributing to the daily household activities as soon as she could talk.” For McNeil’s single child, Katrina doing her share around the house has always been second nature. “At the age of about 10 she started sorting her laundry, then loading the laundry and eventually rotating and hanging clothes to dry. This became more evident as her desire for certain clothes to be clean on the day she wanted to wear them,” explained McNeil. “She’s grown up knowing everyone in the family has to chip in to function properly. Now, as she goes off to college, she will have the skills she needs to survive on her own and we have less help in the house.” For Shawnigan Lake’s Sparks brood of four children, two boys and two girls, it’s a bit of a different story. “The girls kind of help with the laundry and they’re usually pretty good about doing it if we ask,” explained their father Shane. “The boys, they don’t do anything.

They’re useless.” Ages nine and 14, Shane’s sons aren’t as fussy as the girls, ages 12 and 16. “I think it’s a bit of a gender thing. In a sense, the boys are less interested in how they look and keeping clean,” he said, before noting wife Jess didn’t think he was authorized enough on laundry skills to be interviewed. “The boys do such a bad job of the laundry they’re successful in us not asking them,” he said. But they don’t get off the hook that easy. “There’s other stuff around the house they do and outside with the yard work,” he said. He gives kudos to his wife for the mountains of soiled clothes she sorts, cleans and puts away, usually in a binging sort of way, with say six loads done in one go. Laundry’s also just one piece in the puzzle of running the show. “Our parenting style is to include the children in decisions that effect our family,” he said. “They don’t always get a full vote but we involve them in all kinds of choices as well including them in the various aspects of running a life.” For Shawnigan Lake grad Kevin

a smorgasbord of tech McKinnon, laundry’s advice for free just day-to-day in the dormitory lifestyle. “I hardly ever view it as a chore, rather as a calming way to make sure I’m ready for the week to come,” the Grade 12 student said. But not all is sunshine and lollipops. “The state of the laundry rooms is quite atrocious most days and the boys tend to leave their loads in the machines, on the machines, on the floor, and pretty much everywhere else it could be. “From the evidence I have around me, I can see where the idea teenagers, especially boys, are lazy when it comes to laundry, but I also know from first-hand experience there are exceptions as well.” According to Maytag’s results, BC ranked among the lowest percentile across the nation in kids knowing how to do their laundry by the time they enter high school (34%) and parents seeing laundry as a life skill (74%). The survey was completed online from April 29 to May 1.

he next batch of this generation’s techies may be downloading. Students in Grades 4 to 7 at Crofton Elementary School are getting their hands on a number of cool high-tech projects this week, courtesy Vancouver Island’s Byte Camp program. “It’s been going excellent so far, and we’re all very excited around the school,” said vice-principal Denise Aucoin Monday after school staffers rolled out an assembly and sent about 90 students in groups led by Byte management. “We’re very lucky here. We’ve got them for three days and they’re offering this camp for free because they’re training their summer instructors here.” Students were divided to try different projects including claymation and music and video production, 2D and 3D video games as well as 3D animation. “The first thing they did was a warm up, ice-breaker activity,” Aucoin said, noting Byte staffers are incorporating game activities outside for students to get a break from screen time. “Right off the bat, the students are super-excited because the instructors are young

Crofton Elementary was chosen as an instructor training school, getting what’s normally run as a summer camp at $15,000 free because of connections. First off, Byte’s founding and managing director Dave Hladik is from Crofton. And second, the school’s noonhour supervisor knew of Hladik and brought Byte to Aucoin’s attention. “And I just said, ‘Wow,’ and

then I brought it to the attention of the teachers and staff and the PAC and they all just said, ‘Wow.’ “And this is very exciting for (Hladik) to be working from his home-town.” Byte Camp is a non-profit society founded in 2003 to promote creative and productive use of technology among youth. “From humble beginnings we have grown to Western Canada’s biggest provider to Creative Technology education for kids with over 2,500 kids a year taking part in our programs in over 100 locations in B.C. and Alberta,” said Hladik in an email to the News Leader Pictorial. “We are returning to our roots to give 90 students in Crofton Elementary a chance to expand and explore their creative tech skills.” The sessions took place Monday and Tuesday and today from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with several scheduled breaks. More than 35 new instructors were involved in Crofton’s camp, including some Grade 12 and university students. “They’re wonderful young people and they’re extremely enthusiastic,” said Aucoin. Students projects are being saved on flash drives and an end product presentation is also in the works for next week.

250-746-9808 Spending too much time alone?

A Family in Focus Meet: the Baines James is an educational assistant and Heidi is an admitting clerk. They just celebrated their 25th anniversary. They have six children from ages 10-23 and a lovely daughterin-law and one grandchild… so far. What’s your strategy for balancing work and family? To lower expectations of what things “need” to be. With shift work and many different schedules we sometimes just go with the flow. Having jobs we both enjoy helps and having extended family and friends willing to pitch in. Our church community is also a great help in keeping us balanced and focused on what’s important and what’s not. Tell us about a big parenting challenge you faced and how you solved it. We had two biological children. In one year we adopted three children and then the following adopted one more. In two years we went from two children to six. Getting away for a night or two a few times a year makes a huge difference. Not being afraid to have fun in the “bad” times too. There will always be some issue and sometimes you just have to learn to dance in the rain. What’s your go-to activity for keeping the kid(s) occupied? We often think we need to do impressive things to keep our kids occupied. It’s often the little things they remember the most. When they are restless letting them bake, or make dinner (with supervision) is a great way to spend time with them and teach them a new skill. What’s the most laugh-out-loud thing your kid(s) ever said or did? Probably the one that sticks best is bedtime. We would say “Love you like a pancake” and they would add ‘With syrup” and one night our youngest, the comedian, added for no reason “and a wedgie.” Name a local resource every parent needs to know about. Hands down the library. You can go in any kind of weather and it helps teach your children that at times you need to be quiet. What do you do to make time for yourself? With all my kids at school now, I like my quiet cup of coffee in the morning. The best advice another parent ever gave you. Our dear friend from many years ago, her husband would say, “These things happen.” It’s not advice but boy can it calm you down when the TV gets tipped and smashed or the tub overflows, homework was forgotten.

Scouten offers traditional bluegrass with a modern edge

ARTISTS

It’s been a long journey for Sarah Jane Scouten. The Bowen Island-raised songwriter moved to Montreal to hone her musical craft. But she’s back on the West Coast Monday with a show at the Duncan Garage Showroom. “I’m a country and bluegrass-inspired songwriter,” she said in a email to the News Leader Pictorial. “Our songs and arrangements reflect

a life-long love of bluegrass and old-time music, as well as the craft of songwriting that follows in those traditions. The show will feature new music from her new record Magpie Waltz, and fiddle talents of Elise Boeur. Reviewers say she can do funny and sad and slap you in the face like a 12-year-old tomboy in a dress.

Chocolate ink lets print maker eat his own words

Review: Fringe-type play takes a lavoratory look at politics Peter W. Rusland

s Duncan Urinetown? That depends on one’s mental state, and local apathy levels letting companies and inept politicians run rampant over citizens’ basic rights. Imaginations about those weighty subjects were whetted during Saturday’s staging of Urinetown at the Mercury Theatre. Duncan’s Noisy Mime theatre troupe earned full marks for mounting this tricky musical-satire that was basically a long fringe production. Director/actress Leigh Fryling led 14 mostly inexperienced actors through playwright Mark Hollman’s densely dark comedy delivering symbolic messages about corporate control, political corruption — and average folks daring to rebel against them. Those brave sheep were awakened and led by lowly urinal worker Bobby Strong (Jay Davis) who realized it just isn’t right people are denied basic human services, such as bathrooms, after a 20-year drought drains water supplies. Urinetown Good Company, led by rat CEO Caldwell B. Cladwell (Michael Paylor), simply used fear of police banishment to mythical Urinetown to squeeze every dime from folks’ physical functions. Viewers who’d ever been forced to hold on until a toilet

Duncan chocolatier Ernest Horvers and Seattle artist Bill Ritchie have combined for some of the tastiest writing imaginable. wife, Lysette. “I thought chocolate would be nice for a children’s game. “It’s pure, dark chocolate; you can eat it. Bill’s totally into printing presses, and saw Rembandt’s original press in Amsterdam.” Retired Washington-State professor Ritchie roughly fashioned real presses, and his little WeeWoodie model, after the old master’s press. Horvers’ chocolate ink doesn’t melt as it spreads thinly on paper, he explained of his rare invention. “I’ve never seen a print made in choco-

Still, they soldiered on against UGC and its goons. Clearly, Urinetown is soaked in symbolism. Cladwell personified tycoons who care about nothing but money. Neither did Senator Fipp (Jan Campbell) who’s on Cladwell’s payroll — both mirroring cozy corporatepolitical ties. A growing police state was reflected in nasty Officer Lockstock (Cam Drake), and sidekick Officer Barrel (Evan Soikie). Hollywood often shows us one person can make a difference against the bad guys. So does Urinetown. Standouts included Sarah Kaufmann’s spunky Little Sally; Jessie Johnson’s slinky Soupy Sue; and thespian couple Ashlee De-Brust and Eric Brust (Tiny Tina, Billy Boy Bill). Urinetown proved seemingly innocuous theatre can carry hammers against the way things are, and the way they could be. It also proved there’s an actor in all of us. Urinetown runs at 7:30 p.m. June 20 to 22, with a 2 p.m. matinee June 23. Musical-satire play rating: 8 out of 10.

Demo coming: Rembrandt’s Chocolate owner supplies edible ink to pressman game inventor, helps print a real book

nk-stained wretches are usually reporters. But not when that ink’s perhaps Canada’s only edible kind, made by Duncan chocolatier Ernest Horvers. Rembrandt’s Chocolates’ co-owner and Seattle artist Bill Ritchie will display their etching-printing prowess using Horvers’ chocolate ink and one of Richie’s presses June 27 at Duncan’s Old Firehouse Wine Bar. They’ll show how to print from an etched copper plate on Ritchie’s personal-size etching press. A limited number of copies of their novel, Rembrandt’s Ghost in the New Machine — made with real ink — will be available too. The pair’s venture into printmaking — as master painter Rembrandt printed with black ink in the 17th century — started when Ritchie asked Horvers to make chocolate etching ink so youths playing Ritchie’s game for kids could try printmaking the way Rembrandt did, without a real mess. Ritchie found Hovers after simply Googling ‘Rembrandt’ and ‘chocolate’, then noticed the Duncan chocolate shop’s name. “It’s nice for kids to use chocolate because they can lick their fingers,” said Horvers, who owns Rembrandt’s with

Lynette was born in Swan River Manitoba where she completed her grade twelve majoring in cosmetology. Lynette first worked as a hairdresser in Yorkton, Sask. Later moved back to Swan River, MB. working for a local hair salon. Then after marrying Ted in 1978 moved back to her home town of Birch River Manitoba where she operated her own hair salon for a number of years. When her children came along Lynette was a stay at home mom and loved being with her daughters. Lynette enjoyed sewing, knitting and playing the piano at different get togethers. We all especially enjoyed her rendition of the song “The house of the rising sun�. Then in 1990 Lynette and Ted moved to Winnipeg, MB. where she supported her husband in his new career with Manitoba Hydro. This later took them to Beausejour, MB. There Lynette worked at the front desk of a Super 8 Motel and also as a seamstress at a local business. Later in 2007 when her husband retired from Manitoba Hydro they moved to Duncan B.C., a part of the world she really loved. While in Duncan Lynette worked at a Canadian Tire Store, Safeway and lastly at Thrifty Foods. She truly loved all the people she worked with. Lynette was known as a kind and gentle person with a willingness to help at all times. When asked to do something she always said “sure�. Lynette was so happy when both of her daughters moved to Vancouver Island. She will be missed immensely. Lynette had a strong faith in the resurrection hope to a paradise on earth. The family would like to thank all the staff on the 3rd floor of the CDH in Duncan who helped Lynette on her final journey. Special thanks to the ones that went the extra mile, you know who you are. Also many thanks to Dr. Jan Malherbe for stepping up to the plate. At Lynette’s request there will be a graveside service for all wishing to attend on Monday June 24th at 2:00 pm held at Mountain View Cemetery 6493 Somenos Road Duncan B.C. Following the Service everyone is invited to join the family at the community room adjoining Thrifty Foods Duncan B.C. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to Cowichan Valley Hospice Society, Canadian Cancer Society or just hug the one’s you love.

DEATHS

DEATHS YURECHKO,  Edward December 22, 1928 - June 14, 2013

After 84 years  Ed passed away peacefully at home with his wife Irene at his side.  He was born to Anelia and John Yurechko in Port Arthur, Ontario.  Ed forged many lifetime friendships throughout his earlier years, attending school and apprenticing at New Idea Sheet Metal for his journeyman ticket.  Among the  many stories we have heard about his younger years include the Finn gymnastic club, the Northbelt Savages, his boxing days, and his love for hockey, which began when he played in the Lakehead. Ed married Irene Lidstone, together they started a family and moved west to Duncan, BC in 1967.  Ed’s passion for fishing and boating began and was shared with  many of his good friends.  His involvement at Fuller Lake Minor hockey began when he coached his son’s team.  He continued his commitment  to hockey  serving as the Fuller Lake Minor Hockey President and he contributed to bringing Junior B hockey to the Cowichan Valley.  Ed was also a member of the Duncan Curling Club,  the Cowichan Golf Course and the Duncan Legion Ed was a member of Sheet Metal Workers Union Local 276 and he practiced his sheet metal trade with pride until he retired in 1994 from Griffiths Sheet Metal in Duncan, BC.  Ed and Irene enjoyed their trips back east and holidays to hot spots with friends and family. Retirement brought more time for fishing , bowling, golf and supporting his grandchildren in many activities.   Ed fought a brave and courageous battle against cancer with the love and support of his family, friends, Dr Dan Phillippson , Dr Neilson, Drs Goulard and Coppin of the BC Cancer Agency.  Many thanks to the amazing support from the Palliative Care Nurses that enabled him to end his journey at home.  Ed is survived by his wife Irene, of 56 years daughter Nola (Andrew) Jackson, Frank Yurechko, Margaret (Mike) Pilon and his three grandchildren Brett (Christine), Laura (Derek) and Katie Jackson.   A Celebration of Life will be held Friday June 21,  3:00 p.m at H.W. Wallace  Centre, 5285 Polkey Road Duncan BC V9L 6W3. Donations in lieu of flowers  may be made to the BC Cancer Foundation in Ed’s memory. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Shawnigan squeaks in a silver finish

It has not taken speedy Cowichan rugby product Dani Robb long to attract the notice of people at the national pinnacle of the sport.

hawnigan Lake School’s golf squad is seeing the silver lining in a secondplace win in provincial golf championships during exceptionally soggy course play. “The conditions were actually horrendous and the course superintendent and his team are to be heartily congratulated for having the course in as good a condition as possible, given the circumstances,” said Shawnigan Coach David Hyde-Lay. “Shawnigan Lake claimed its best-ever finish in the tournament with a solid and eye-opening silver medal performance, and St Thomas More eventually lived up to their pre-tournament billing, charging hard on day two to win third-place honours.” Kwalikum Secondary School of Qualicum Beach took top spot with

a 624 team total in the AA action at Cowichan’s Arbutus Ridge golf course May 27 and 28 with Shawnigan trailing not far behind, eight shots back to be exact. Individual medalist winners were St. Thomas More veteran Alan Tolusso (70, 72) and Shawnigan Lake stalwarts Curtis Zhao (76, 78) and Tristan Mandur (72, 79). The first day of action saw four time defending champions Burnaby’s St Thomas More in the “middle of the pack,” reported Hyde-Lay. “This came as both a shock and relief to the rest of the field, as their performance left the door wide open to a variety of other schools. When the first day scores were eventually tallied, Kwalikum Secondary led by a single shot over Shawnigan.” According to HydeLay, the next day’s competition was tense frontrunners Kwalikum, Shawnigan and a “revitalized” St. Thomas,

Sixteen schools participated. “made a frantic dash to the finish.” “Despite furious pressure being placed upon them by the chasing schools, Kwalikum was able to squeak out a well deserved and impressive victory,” said Hyde-Lay. “Obviously I am delighted with the performance of the team,” said Kwalikum coach Butch Gayton. “They had finished in second place for two years running in this championship and it comes as a tremendous relief to finally capture the gold medal. My hat is off to the boys from Shawnigan Lake and St Thomas More. “They gave it their

best shot but, in the final analysis, we were fortunate to just squeak through. The tournament was an awesome experience and we are all looking forward to next year’s edition.” Hyde-Lay also gave kudos to Arbutus Ridge Head Pro Richard Ingle who was “fantastic in every respect hosting the province to his course. He left nothing to chance in the bid to have his guests maximize their experience in every way.” Brentwood College’s squad also competed but as a late addition, struggled and placed last. There were 16 teams participating.

Danielle Groenendijk Being the youngest in a family of four doesn’t mean Danielle Groenendijk plays second fiddle to anyone. “They’ve helped me a lot,’’ said Groenendijk, 13, of her two brothers Cameron and Doug and sister Megan. “If they didn’t play these sports, I wouldn’t be playing them.’’ Danielle came into her own as a volleyball player on the Nanaimo Volleyball Club’s U14 girls this spring. “I’ve grown a lot because I hardly knew any of them,’’ she said. “I was really nervous in the beginning. They invited me in and I just became better as a volleyball player. We all work together. We’re all at the same level.’’ Megan said Danielle is way ahead of her at the same age in terms of volleyball development. “She has a huge advantage of being able to be at the Nanaimo Volleyball Club,’’ said Megan. “I didn’t start that till I was in Grade 11.’’ Danielle is only finishing Grade 8 and will keep progressing by facing Grade 12s with the Duncan Christian School senior team in the fall. “I know I’m pretty strong at offense, but I’ve got to work on some defence because I’m a taller player so it’s harder for me to get lower and pass the ball,’’ she said.

July 8 to 21. “I’m still very overwhelmed about it all,” said Robb. “I only found out a week ago Sunday.” It’s the latest achievement for the valley product who earlier became the first Brentwood College grad to lay claim to a Canadian Interuniversity Sport rugby championship. In 2011 she helped St. Francis Xavier University of Antigonish, Nova Scotia to the national women’s crown. The 20-year-old heads to Toronto June 30 for a week-long training camp with the rest of squad with 26 girls on the roster. They then jet off to England July 7 and she won’t return to Cowichan until July 22. Players were selected by head coach Sandro Fiorino after a two-day camp in Toronto at Fletcher’s Field.

Bonner said he created the tour to showcase Vancouver Island while at the same time combining all four qualifying rides for the Paris-BrestParis series (PBP) — a 1,200-kilometre event that draws 5,000 cyclists to the French countryside every four years — into a single event. Bonner chose Chemainus as home base for riders because it’s centrally located and because he wanted to help the local economy in a “little, tiny way.” His apt choice of name for the event stems from a combination of a play on words and the island’s

climate. “I termed it Eau de Hell week because of the time of year,” Bonner said, referring to the spring rains that fter a two-year hiatus, typically fall on Vancouver Island Eau de Hell week and during early April, when the event its tireless 70-year-old was first staged. founder returned to Peter W.
