Bev Darche laughs as she recalls the day she outed a private detective working on her street. The man had been sitting in his car on Wychbury Avenue in Esquimalt’s West Bay neighbourhood reading a newspaper, an inconspicuous act that in most areas of town would go unnoticed. But Darche sensed something wasn’t right. “Unconnected, “Every year, we’d uninformed have a barbecue in the neighbours are a middle of the criminal’s best ally.” street, and I – Tim Morrison knew all of my neighbours,” says Darche, an Esquimalt native who only recently sold her home of 35 years on the avenue. “If anyone walked in who shouldn’t be there, we wanted to know who they were.” When police arrived, the detective was shocked to learn he’d just been made by a member of the local Block Watch program. “The police got a laugh out of that,” she says. As a Block Watch volunteer for more than 20 years, Darche and hundreds of other residents across Esquimalt and Victoria understand crime prevention is only the first benefit of the program. “We have three or four neighbour events a year,” says Bruce Cuthbert, Esquimalt Block Watch community coordinator. “You know your neighbours better, and if you know your neighbours better, you have a safer community and better neighbourhood.” PlEASE SEE: Neighbourhoods, Page A4

Feds cut astronomy outreach Centre of the Universe, telescope tours finished at end of summer Edward Hill News staff
The Centre of the Universe, a national historic site and a hub for astronomy education in Victoria, will be closed to the public for good at the end of the summer. The National Research Council has confirmed that the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory interpretive center will close at the end of August, after the final student summer camps end. Two employees will lose their jobs and one will be reassigned, the NRC says. The facility has been open for 12 years. â€œItâ€™s got to do with financial constraints,â€? said Charles Drouin, spokesman for the NRC in Ottawa. â€œWe do exercises that look at all the activities and programs, and rejig them. It was a tough decision, but one we felt we had to do.â€? The Centre of the Universe facility â€“ which houses historical artifacts like the original 1.8 metre mirror from the Plaskett Telescope and runs historical tours, multimedia shows and youth programs â€“ costs about $32,000 to operate and $245,000
Sharon Tiffin/News staff
The Centre of the Universe, a public interpretative centre at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory, is being shut down at the end of the summer due to budget cutbacks. in employee wages, and brings in about $47,000 per year in revenue, giving the NRC a sum savings of $230,000 per year.
C R D S E W A G E
The NRC has a $900 million annual budget, covering 4,000 employees across 50 research facilities. The Dominion Astrophysical Observatory employs about 105 people in research and its engineering shop. Drouin confirmed that the astronomy facility and national historic site will have no public outreach come late August or early September, and locals and visitors will no longer be able to tour the Plastkett Telescope, in operation since May 6, 1918. This would be the first time in decades, if ever, the facility hasnâ€™t hosted Saturday night observing events or tours of the telescope. â€œItâ€™s one thing to do away with the Centre of the Universe, but the large telescope will not be available for public outreach,â€? said Nelson Walker, president of the Royal Astronomical Society, Victoria Centre. Between 8,000 and 10,000 people visit the site each year, and many of those are children getting their first taste of hands-on astronomy. RASC-Victoria has been around as long as the observatory, and members volunteered every week to help out NRC staff with telescope setup and tours. â€œSomeoneâ€™s first foray into astronomy is always amazing. People gasp when they see their first close up of the moon. Itâ€™s one thing to see it on a computer, itâ€™s another to see it through a telescope,â€? Walker said.
P L A N -
â€œItâ€™s a shame we wonâ€™t have it. Itâ€™s wonderful to be up there at night with the big telescope growling around. Itâ€™s a special place to go and certainly the only one around here.â€? Drouin said the decision to close the Centre of the Universe is not related to Ottawaâ€™s announcement in May to reorganize the NRC as an â€œindustry-focused research and technology organization.â€? â€œThis was an independent exercise,â€? he said. The historical artifacts and displays in the Centre of the Universe building will remain in place after the facility is closed. Drouin said the NRC working with local community groups to find volunteers to use the space. Walker couldnâ€™t say if RASC-Victoria would be in a position to operate public outreach on Observatory Hill â€“ nobody has contacted them and the group hasnâ€™t discussed it. Sid Sidhu, public outreach program coordinator RASC-Victoria, was disappointed to hear the news. â€œLots of schools will be suffering because the teachers like going to the Centre of the Universe,â€? Sidhu said. â€œMaybe we should take over that facility. â€Ś It seems that we will have to step up our efforts to expand our programs to cover what the CU staff were doing.â€? email@example.com

Food drives, makeover start summer right for Mustard Seed Food bank girds for most challenging time of year Don Descoteau News staff
Mustard Seed receptionist Jessica Woods is smiling from ear to ear as she describes her remodeled reception area at the Queens Avenue facility. The new counters are better suited for her height, she says, and the large, sliding glass service window that replaced a tiny one with bars on it allows community members who need help to do so in a more dignified way. The changes are among the structural improvements completed in the recent HeroWork extreme makeover of the food bank, drop-in centre and chapel. The major rejuvenation of the busy social service provider’s main floor in late May and early June, combined with a pair of major food drives, has helped Mustard Seed kick off the summer on a bright note. “(HeroWork’s) Convoy of Awesome was successful in two ways,” Jackie Cox-Ziegler, director of administration, said of the June 1 food drive. “The (Mustard Seed’s five-ton) truck was over-full. They had to use two trucks (belonging to) donors to hold the rest. (And) I was overwhelmed by how many businesses and people and groups got together and got behind the Mustard Seed.” Between 80 and 100 businesses and hundreds of volunteers were part of the week-long makeover project, the end-of-week food drive, or both. Combined with the Greater Victoria Postie Food Drive that happened the previous week, nearly 15,000 kilograms of food was collected. As Cox-Ziegler pointed out, however, that amount covers only about three weeks’ supply for the food bank. “In June, July and August the demand for food from families rises,” she said. “Children who would normally get (meal) support from schools do not get that support in summertime, and there’s usually less food donations. It’s really important that the donations continue.” While the renovation has helped give a more positive outlook for staff and the community members who use the Mustard Seed’s services, Cox-Ziegler said, the need for those services never stops. As local produce begins to be harvested, the food bank includes fresh food in the hampers, she said, adding that Mustard Seed gratefully received 360 kilograms of strawberries recently from Oldfield Orchards in Saanich. Donations of fresh produce and non-perishable foods, as well as cash donations and new or gently used clothing, can be dropped off Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 625 Queens Ave. Visit mustardseed.ca or call 250-953-1575 for more information about ways to give or Mustard Seed programs. firstname.lastname@example.org
Biggest turnout yet for Navy Run Travis Paterson News staff
A new name and a new date has helped rebrand and grow the Navy Run. More than 650 runners attended the seventh annual run at CFB Esquimalt Naden base on Sunday, up from 502 last year. “It’s by far the biggest turnout,” said Navy Run race director Danielle Sutherland. “People are (better) associating with the name and we’re planning on keeping it as (the fourth weekend in June) for next year as well, so runners can keep us in their schedule.” The top three finishers in each category were given medals by Rear Admiral Bill Truelove, commander of the Maritime Forces Pacific/Joint Task Force, including local runner Jonathan Gendron, who was first overall in the 10 km run with a time of 33 minutes and 21 seconds. “We had a lot of people from the outside community come and run, and that’s another thing we try to promote, having civilians run the race as well,” Sutherland said. But the biggest reason for the Women’s first-place finisher jump in numbers likely comes Kirsten Arensen.
from moving the race to June in 2012, after five years as an August run. “There are a lot of naval exercises demanding the time of base personnel so June accommodates more, and it showed with a substantial increase in both years. “We also acknowledge that August is near the end of the race season for a lot of runners. Even in June we’ve made sure to have it on a different weekend than the West Shore’s Goddess Run, which we conflicted with last year.” New to the Navy Run this year was the Fleet Challenge, which allowed base employees to sign up for the Navy Run under their ship name or for their non-seagoing support unit on base. Winning the inaugural Fleet Challenge was HMCS Yellowknife in the sub-100 category, while the Joint Pacific Support Unit won the 100 to 200 category and HMCS Algonquin took the big category of over-300 personnel. Winners were based on percentage of runners per unit. Also new was the Navy Run’s Kids Run, for ages two and up. It ran unofficially in the past, but is now an official event with staggered distances based on ages. Fifty-five kids registered, which is excellent for its first year, Sutherland said. email@example.com n See sports A16 for race results

Southern Alberta’s devastating floods have prompted a surge in Red Cross donations and volunteer support across Vancouver Island. On Saturday, three Red Cross volunteers from Victoria, Duncan and Mayne Island left for Calgary to help co-ordinate shelter services and deliver emergency supplies to many of the 65,000 people forced from their homes after the Bow and Elbow rivers spilled their banks. Another volunteer from Nanaimo was expected to arrive in Calgary Tuesday. The Red Cross has received about $3.5 million in donations since the devastating floods took southern Alberta communities by surprise, said Amrit Dhatt, Red Cross spokeswoman.

The initial one-hour orientation shows residents how they can use crimereports.com to search crimes in their area and set up automatic notifications as new crimes are reported, Cuthbert says. “It’s also two-way communication so that police inform you as well about what’s going on in your neighbourhood,” he adds. Since he became involved in Block Watch, Cuthbert has helped grow participation amongst his neighbours on Constance Street from 60 per cent to close to 95 per cent. “Across the Township, if we are able to double our people involved, it can take a load off the front end for police. If we don’t step up,
we can’t keep complaining about budgets going up if we’re not going to be a little bit more helpful on that end,” he says. Coun. Tim Morrison, who volunteered as a Block Watch captain before being elected to council, says the statistics prove that attentive neighbours can drive down crime by as much as 60 per cent. He’s also seen firsthand the way the program builds community ties. “Unconnected, uninformed neighbours are a criminal’s best ally,” Morrison says. “By increasing awareness and sharing information with your neighbours, you’re defeating crime.” To learn more about Block Watch and sign up as a volunteer, visit vicpd.ca/block-watch. firstname.lastname@example.org

City seeks public’s thoughts on Beacon Hill Park changes
Temporary road changes to be reviewed by council Daniel Palmer News staff
Temporary road changes in Beacon Hill Park are set to return to Victoria city council this fall, but there’s still time to provide public input. Staff will be accepting public surveys until Aug. 31 on the restrictions to vehicle traffic in the park. The City made the changes to allow pedestrians, cyclists and people with mobility and disability problems easier
access to the paved areas of the park. “I haven’t seen the summary of public input feedback so far, but I think it’s important when you go and consult with the public that you go and honour public input,” said Mayor Dean Fortin. Jim Gibson, who lives in James Bay, was cycling through Beacon Hill Park on Tuesday. Initially a critic of the road restrictions, Gibson appreciates the bike-friendly lanes since taking up cycling
last week. “I used to drive my car through the park to Starbucks to get a coffee,” said Gibson, smiling. “Not a good carbon footprint.” Parks staff will be available to answer questions on the driving and parking changes at the sun dial in the ornamental garden, across from the public washrooms on Bridge Way, July 10 from 4 to 7 p.m. Print surveys are available at the Beacon Hill Park maintenance yard at the end of Nursery Road, and at City Hall. To complete an

Feds abandon science education Many parts of Greater Victoria offer a view of the large white dome atop of Observatory Hill in Saanich. At the end of the summer, that’s about the only way people will get to take in the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory. The National Research Council reluctantly admitted last week that it plans to close the Centre of the Universe interpretive centre and end all public outreach connected with astronomy and astrophysics at the attached Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics. This will likely be the first time in the facility’s nearly 100 year history the public has been shut out of this local national historic site. Greater Victoria has a lot to be proud of with the observatory – for a brief moment, the Plaskett telescope was the largest in the world, and it is a site that continues to make significant contributions to precision technology and our understanding of the universe. The scientific research arm of the site, the NRC Herzberg Institute, isn’t closing and will continue to employ more than 100 people. But the federal government’s mandate to reorganize the NRC as an “industry-focused” organization certainly doesn’t inspire confidence. Closing the Centre of the Universe is being framed as a cost saving measure under a regime of restricted budgets, and not a consequence of the NRC’s new approach. It’s fair to say that the federal government has decided to abandon public education linked to its federal science. Closing the Centre of the Universe will save the NRC about $230,000 of its $900 million budget, implying the decision was driven by an ideology suspicious of and hostile to science, rather than the principle of saving a few public tax dollars. If the government wants “industry-focused” research and advanced technology, closing the door of research centres to young people is shortsighted and counterproductive. Out of the thousands of kids that visit the Centre of the Universe each year, if only a handful are inspired to enter engineering, math and the sciences, the public outreach has proved its worth.

LETTERS and serious health issues must survive on $610 per month. If they get disability status (the request is often initially refused), income increases to $906 per month. I challenge welfare supervisors to live on $906. Inexorably, the stress of inadequate welfare leads to further addiction, criminal behaviour and (punishable) outrage at the welfare system’s injustice. We need a guaranteed annual income matching Canada’s poverty line: $18,400 in 2009, after taxes. That’s $7,500 more than what B.C. disability recipients get. We trap people in poverty, with insufficient funds to address health problems, safe housing or educational needs. This costs every Canadian taxpayer $2,100 per year in additional health and social services for those kept in poverty. By providing an annual income (taxed away if earning more than the poverty line), we can provide educational opportunity, better health and secure housing while reducing social costs when these needs are not met. Let’s end the shame of
keeping people imprisoned in poverty. It’s cheaper to do the right thing. Hendrik de Pagter Victoria
Trying to get ahead tough for disabled man Re: The aggression of welfare (News, June 19) I really wish I could say I was surprised by the actions of the ministry staff, but I can’t. In the spring of 2010, after I lost a job, a staff member at the ministry told me I should apply for EI, and that it would not be deducted from my disability cheque. About a month later, I found out that wasn’t the case. I found out that all of my EI amount was going to be deducted dollar-for-dollar from my disability cheque. That’s about $5,000 between the summer of 2010 and the winter of 2011. I’ll never see it again. Since then, I have held down a couple more jobs, but thankfully, not long enough to be eligible for EI.

Readers respond: Derelict boats, drug case, Rock Bay Stop advertising free moorage space Re: Derelict boats a regional issue (Our View, June 7) Derelict boats are not only a regional issue, they are also a media issue. I have lived near Banfield Park for the past 12 years. Back then, there were no boats moored in the Selkirk waterway. That all changed when one homeless man built his own “Canadian sampan” as it was dubbed, out of tubing and parachute silk, and took up residence there. Since then, every single time the media mentions that boats are moored there, and no one is kicking them out, it’s like free advertising. The number of boats increases regularly. In future, I’d appreciate it if you could also mention that the neighbourhood is not warm and friendly. I’ve heard drunken bickering and threats to “come over there and kill you,” and seen interesting transactions taking place. Of course, there is the human feces problem, too, though that could also be attributed to homeless people camping in the nearby bushes. Forgotten is the drowning death of a man who was living aboard his unseaworthy vessel. In the winter, I believe it was three years ago the boat went
down. Because there is no public dock nearby, it took awhile for the police boat to respond. They saved one person, but one man died. It may be free, but not so safe, not so friendly. And of course, no public bathrooms nearby. Grace Wyatt Victoria
Drug charge accused should be in jail Re: Media photo-op just not enough (Our View, June 19) I fully agree with your editorial comment on the arrest of ‘top-level’ suspected drug traffickers. This should have been an ‘incarceration arrest’ – with the men detained in jail. It would appear there were sufficient grounds to arrest in this case. Given the supposed reputation of these two suspects, the laying of one serious, indictable offence charge would have been enough to hold them in custody. People have a right to apply for bail. A defence lawyer and Crown Counsel argue the merits of that before a judge to determine whether or not bail should be granted, and under what conditions. If the police wish to continue their investigation, they can certainly do so, then apply to the Crown (prosecutor) to lay further

Welfare system traps people in poverty Re: The aggression of welfare (News, June 19) I appreciate Danielle Pope’s article on the injustices disability welfare recipients endure. Formerly a hospital social worker, I often helped welfare patients. The link between poverty and health was clear: the poorer the patient the worse the health. I heard many stories of harsh welfare workers. Decades ago I worked as an intake worker. Intake workers are overwhelmed, hemmed in by restrictive regulations that permit exhausted workers to punish desperately frustrated welfare recipients who express outrage at the demeaning treatment that characterizes B.C.’s welfare program. Welfare presumes people don’t really deserve help. It shames and blames recipients, presumed fit for work and the cause of their own unemployment. There’s little understanding of damage caused by chronic illness, mental health challenges, job injuries, childhood abuse, poor education and addictions.

Neighbourhood project makes inspiring story Re: Rebuilding life in Rock Bay (News, June 19) I am thrilled with Daniel Palmer’s report. What an incredible example of what community can do – empowering people to create a better life for themselves and the community. This is one example of public/private partnership that is a win/win situation. I hope it will inspire more such projects in the near future in all our municipalities and neighbourhoods. It would be great if neighbourhood agreements fostered this type of investment in healthy community, instead of shutting out folks that need a hand up. Joanna Wilkinson Victoria

Stepping through the door of The Local General Store on Haultain Road, one is greeted with a pleasantly fragrant aroma. Almost sensing the visitor’s curiosity about the source of the fragrance, shop co-owner Alix Harvey leads him to a corner of the shop where a vintage fullsized Beach stove is mostly covered by a collection of organic body care products.

Adams Food Fair – a more traditional corner grocery store – and across from the popular Koffi café at what is being called Haultain Corners. There’s a section of raw whole grains, and an electric mill for turning rice, oats and wheat into flour. While there’s many glutenfree products on the shelves, Harvey clarifies that this is not a “health food store,” but a “whole food store.” With the help of husband, Chris, a retired assistant superintendent of schools for Greater Victoria, and a pair of enthusiastic staffers, Harvey is chasing her dream of narrowing the distance between consumers and their sources of food and other specialty products.

“I found the stove on UsedVictoria,” Harvey says of one of her shop’s more unique displays. Next to it is a cupboard housing custommade pottery – mugs, plates and other items – made by at-risk women in Vancouver who are being taught new job and life skills. Nearby is a shelf featuring hemp underwear and shirts, courtesy of a Bellingham supplier. “The idea, as much as possible, is to be sourcing local and B.C. and Pacific Northwest products,” says Harvey, a retired special education teacher who wasn’t ready to kick back yet. The non-grocery items are just part of the mix for the Local, which opened about a month ago next to

Her inventory philosophy is simple, find quality suppliers nearby and limit the number of brand choices so as not to overwhelm customers, but also to have room to stock a broader product mix. “I remember getting to a point where I just wanted to shop in one place,” she says. With fresh baked goods, a modest amount of produce, organic chocolate, specialty pet foods and artisan crafts, this shop is as much a destination as an old-time general store. A word that comes up more than once in the conversation is “relationships,” as in knowing your suppliers and your customers. Both are important, Harvey says. As a way to better acquaint her to both, two regular features are planned. The first, a weekly “What’s for Dinner?” in-store and online recipe idea, sees staff and customers contribute their favourite fresh food meals – the Local provides the ingredients. Harvey also plans to bring in suppliers for monthly product demos. She calls the shop a combination grocery store and gift shop. Sounds like a true definition of a general store if there ever was one. – The Local General Store, 1440 Haultain Rd., 778-265-6225.

Macaulay student wins national poster contest
Daniel Palmer News staff
While the topic of bullying in school continues to make headlines across the country, one local kindergarten student already has a leg up on how to deal with the problem. Macaulay elementary’s Jett Scales, 5, won the national WITS program poster contest last week after his school submitted his artwork in the ages 5 and 6 category. “W stands for walk away, I stands for ignore, T stands for talk it out, and S stands for seek help,” said Scales, pointing to the letters on his poster. His drawing of two students turning their backs on a name-calling bully caught the eyes of the judges, who awarded Scales one of 10 Chapters gift cards worth $500. “If you can just walk away or ignore that bully and do those two steps in primary (school), you’ve got a huge step forward,” said Katrinka Karpes, Macaulay kindergarten teacher. “We were just excited that he won best out of the 80 students in our school, but then he went on to win across Canada for his age group.” The WITS program was started at Lampson

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.
Sunglass protection Sunglasses, clip-ons and tinted lenses are used to block out the glare of bright sunlight. They can also filter out ultra-violet (UV) rays. These rays are invisible to the eye, yet potentially harmful. UV is thought to be mostly absorbed at the corneal level. This is the cause of “snow blindness,” an extremely painful condition. However, UV exposure is also a risk factor for increasing the formation of cataracts and the development of macular degeneration. Misconceptions exist regarding sunglass selection and protection. It is true that you can’t tell how much UV a pair of sunglasses is blocking by the color or the density of tint. Blocking UV light does not have to be difficult or expensive.

The 16-year-old smiles as she explains each element of the politically-charged piece, inspired by the proposed Enbridge pipeline. “Back here we have the machine that’s building corporate lines,” she said. “Then the Earth, here, is crying and back here we have a jellyfish, which is a sign of polluted water. I’m trying to mirror the pain that the Earth feels and the anger and frustration that a lot of people are feeling.” Barker-Hart is one of a handful of youth artists set to return to the Bowker Creek Brush Up for the second year this August – a fact that couldn’t make organizer Joanie McCorry happier. “I wish she was my daughter,” said McCorry, who got to know Barker-Hart through the Creatively United For the Planet fashion show, while the Vic High student was building dresses of flower petals. “Last year, EiraShay just sat on the grass and just kept painting. She didn’t need a chair or table or anything.” Barker-Hart admitted being a little unprepared for her debut at the Brush Up, but found it to be a huge learning experience. The positive side of putting her work out there – including marketing “I don’t know herself as an artist – outweighed the sting what my medium is of not making any yet, so I figured I’d try sales during her first everything until I find Brush Up. “It makes you so the medium that fits. I vulnerable,” she said. “It’s your work. It’s so change my mind all of much of you.” the time.” The Grade 11 student grew up on – EiraShay Barker-Hart Cortes Island and attended Linnaea, the Island’s alternative school, until Grade 8, an experience which exposed her to an eclectic community of artisans. “I like how she hasn’t become a big-city girl,” said McCorry, a photographer and creator of threedimensional paper casting cards. “She just continues to follow her heart and her passion and her love.” Whether she’s making a Mexican-inspired selfportrait in oil soluble water colours, snapping photos on a Pentax K-1000, or constructing clothing from flower petals, Barker-Hart is open to just about anything artistically. “I don’t know what my medium is yet, so I figured I’d try everything until I find the medium that fits. I change my mind all of the time.” Though her approach may come off as fickle, her intentions behind the work are anything but. “I like having an intention and a point to it, as opposed to something that’s just nice to look at. In the past I was just painting things that were fun to paint and I wasn’t comfortable pushing social barriers.” The Oak Bay Community Artists Society launched the Bowker Creek Brush Up in 2005. Youth artists – including high school students and young adults – are invited to join Barker-Hart from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Aug. 11 along Bowker Creek.

The sprint is shorter than the regular Olympic distance event, with a 750-metre swim, 20-kilometre bike and five km run, making for an up-tempo race. Olympian Kyle Jones took silver, the only Canadian male on the podium.
