using a tool at council’s disposal to re-consider a motion, would have voted to overturn the rejection decision. Jakeway was against going ahead with borrowing the money saying the city first needs to get its costs down. He also felt the question of going into debt

should go before the electors in the form of a referendum question during the November 14 city election. Samson said he was against borrowing money when the city

has two huge, expensive projects on the go – the $4.7 million downtown revitalization upgrade and an expected $4 million price tag to replace the city’s drinking water system which will

become obsolete with BC Hydro’s John Hart Dam upgrade project. “I think til we get those done and know the final costs, the rest should be bare bones,” Samson said.

The city shelled out $14.5 million in wages to council and city staff in 2012. All councillors received $21,721 in remuneration last year while Mayor Walter Jakeway received $61,691. Predictably, the highest earners were senior managers. City Manager Andy Laidlaw grossed the highest pay at $178,110 – an increase over his $146,346 annual salary in 2011. Dave Morris, general manager of facilities and supplies, was the second highest earner at $126,716, followed by Ron Neufeld, general manager of operations, who made $125,738 last year. Laura Ciarniello, general manager of corporate services, at a yearly salary of $119,463, Ross Blackwell, land use manager, at $113,222 per year, Ross Milnthorp, general manager of parks, recreation and facilities ($108,310) and Jason Hartley, the capital works manager, with a salary of $105,703, rounded out the list of top earners. In addition, the city handed out some expensive pay cheques to

employees outside of city hall. Fire Chief Ian Baikie, working as a deputy fire chief last year, made $111,467 while current Deputy Fire Chief Chris Vrabel made $102,954. Fire captain Ken Dawson made $106,525, captain John Baker made $103,430 and fire captains Reid Wharton and John Vaton made $102,875 and $98,853 respectively. Other firefighters made the following annual salaries in 2012: Kelly Bellefleur ($91,107), Mark McKenzie ($89,441), Michael Dumont ($87,050), Bruce Holbrook ($86,571), Stewart Dumont ($85,834), David Lagos ($85,807), Lee Pendergast ($85,073), and Timothy Willis ($83,222). The city’s career firefighters (including dispatch) made up roughly $4.2 million of the city’s budget in 2012, compared to Courtenay which had a $1.5 million fire budget and Port Alberni, which spent $2.7 million on fire services. In 2012, Campbell River paid three chief officers, 20 career firefighters and 50 auxiliary firefighters while Port Alberni paid two chief officers, 20 career firefighters, and 10

Think about this: • Over 600 of your friends and family work in the Downtown Business Improvement Association (BIA). They live, work and are invested in your community - just like you. • The Downtown BIA is comprised of over 60 businesses and employers, the third largest source of employment in Campbell River. The BIA extends from Pure Self Defense in the south to the Royal Bank in the north including Tyee Plaza. • BIA merchants support local charities, causes, sports teams and events. Non-profits receive considerably more support from local businesses than they do from out-oftown businesses. If you need help with an event you more than likely won’t talk to a merchant from Courtenay, Nanaimo or Victoria - you’ll approach a local business. BIA businesses are generous- think of the Hospital Foundation, the Angel Rock, the Community Foundation and Fashion Inferno. • When you shop with local merchants, more of your money stays close to home. Buying goods and services locally means two to three times as much money spent stays in the local economy. • A local business is much more concerned about keeping you happy by providing good customer service.

• Before you head out of town, take a good look through the local shops, chances are you will find what you are looking for.

City continues to push boundary extension Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

The city is ploughing ahead with plans that, if approved, would extend its southern boundary and join Area D residents with the City of Campbell River. The city hired outside consultant Urban Systems to undertake a detailed study to gauge the feasibility of a boundary extension. Through the process, Urban Systems will review the impacts on Area D residents, Campbell River residents and the Strathcona Regional District.

“We will be looking at a wide range of issues, such as governance and how that would change,” said James Klukas, community planner with Urban Systems, at Tuesday’s council meeting. “We’ll also be looking at the financial impacts of the boundary extension.” Following the study, Urban Systems expects to hold a public consultation meeting in the fall. “We expect to have the study’s findings ready to share with the community this fall to give affected residents – both inside and outside Area D – the opportunity to fully understand the

boundar y extension proposal and its implications,” said Klukas in a release. A formal submission would then be sent to the province for review and following that, a referendum would take place in Area D. Klukas hopes to hold the referendum sometime in late 2013. The city would also need the approval of electors in the City of Campbell River, and that would likely happen through an Alternative Approval Process, where the city obtains approval unless more than 10 per cent of all eligible voters write in an objection.

The city has been considering annexing Area D (Oyster Bay-Buttle Lake), which includes the Crawford Road area, into the city since last year in response to a break down in negotiations with the Strathcona Regional District over hooking up Area D residents to the city’s sewer system. Area D residents, in a 2006 referendum, voted in favour of the Strathcona Regional District borrowing up to $9,350 for the collection and disposal of sewage. The city had an offer on the table in October 2011 but Area D Director Brenda Leigh said the

field (transportation manager, $101,755), Jennifer Peters (utilities manager, $101,275), Natalie Aalderink (financial services manager, $100,465), Amber

Zirnhelt (sustainability manager, $97,601), Peter Wipper (city clerk, $96,079), and Michele Sirett (recreation and c u ltu re sup e r v is or, $91,063).

In total the city had 54 employees make more than $75,000 last year. The city also spent a further $9.3 million on employees who made $75,000 or less.

auxiliary firefighters. Courtenay paid for three chief officers, zero career firefighters, and 37 auxiliary firefighters. Courtenay is able to run a mostly volunteer fire department, with a mix of full-time paid and on-call auxiliary staff because of its close proximity to the municipalities of Comox and Cumberland, which can share and partner in specialized rescue operations. Courtenay can also call on the services of nearby Canadian Forces 19 Wing. Other top city hall salaries include: Warren Kalyn (information services manager, $102,435), Drew Had-

offer was more than double what was approved in the referendum. The city pulled out of negotiations after the regional district turned down the city’s offer. The city’s solution is to extend its boundary to incorporate Area D properties so they can benefit from the city’s sewer system. The proposal would incorporate about 1,000 properties from the city boundary at Jubilee Parkway south to Henry Road. It would allow 2,400 of the total 4,300 Area D population to hook up to the city’s sewer service and get off septic tanks, according

to the city. But Leigh has suggested in the past that Area D is not interested in joining the city. “I do not believe that the people of Area D are interested in being annexed into Campbell River or being governed

by them in order to get those services,” Leigh said. “That’s something that the people of Area D should decide after a full and independent presentation of all the factors, and through a referendum.”

It’s Willow Point or nothing, Telus says of tower location Kristen Douglas

TrAffiC DeLAys/roAD CLosures:

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Monday July 1, 2013, 10:30am – 5:00pm

Telus will not be considering any other Willow Point locations for a cell phone tower after council rejected Telus’ proposal to put a 30-metre pole in Willow Point Park. Council, after hearing feedback f rom Telus’ public consultation period, pulled the plug on an agreement in principle between the city and Telus to put up a tower to improve spotty cell phone coverage in the area. Coun. Larry Samson said he couldn’t move for ward with commercializing city parks nor could he ignore the potential threat from cell towers. “The science world is divided on this issue,” Samson said. “There’s a Safety Code 6 which feels it’s within the safe limits but there’s also concerns expressed about the RF (radio frequency) waves given off by those cell tower sites. With cell phones we do have a personal choice whether we decide to carry them or not to carry them.

Hwy 28 near at the Duncan Bay Mainline Along Hwy 19 from Hwy 28 heading Southbound to 14th Ave. and crossing Hwy 19 North at 14th Ave. Also expect further delays where the ERT Rd. crosses Evergreen Rd. Rockland Rd. will be closed from 11:00am - 3:30pm from Dogwood St. to Gazelle Rd.

PARkING RESTRICTIONS: No Parking 14th Ave Eastbound Lane Monday July 1, 2013, 9:00am – 5:00pm Parking Restrictions are due to the BC Bike Race.

City of Campbell River PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE

3x14

Notice is hereby given that a Public Hearing regarding the following will be held in the Council Chambers of City Hall located at 301 St. Ann’s Road in Campbell River, B.C. at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 9, 2013. Property owners are required to provide all tenants, leaseholders and occupants with a copy of this Public Hearing Notice. A copy of this proposal may be inspected at the City Hall, Land Use Services Department on any regular business day between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday inclusive except Statutory Holidays. All persons who believe that their interest in property is affected by the proposed Bylaw will be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the Bylaw that is the subject of this hearing. Please note that legal considerations prevent Council from receiving any representations or submissions after the close of the Public Hearing. A speakers list will be available for persons wishing to speak at the Public Hearing. You may register in advance by calling 250-286-5700 or at the Public Hearing. Proposal for 741 Alder Street: That Lot 1, District Lot 73, Sayward Land District, Plan 5773 (741 Alder Street) be rezoned from Residential One (R-1) to Residential Three (R-3) to allow for the construction of a triplex.

THEY SAID IT: “We jave tp accept (cell) service within this area will be poor in the future.”

– Shawn Hall, Telus

But with a cell tower in our parks there is no choice – it’s there.” Coun. Andy Adams said he’s not a scientist and therefore couldn’t comment on the harmful or lack of effects of the tower – what he called a “non issue” – but said he couldn’t move forward with something the public is resisting. “We are elected to represent the public, and the neighbourhood in there…has made it clear that people are not in favour of this for a multitude of reasons and as a result I can’t support the tower going ahead,” Adams said. “I would encourage Telus, who has been a good corporate sponsor for Willow Point Park and also a good corporate citizen to maybe look at an alternate location.”

But Shawn Hall, representative for Telus, said there is no other option. “We were working for some years to find a site for a wireless tower that would fill in a coverage gap,” Hall said. “We’ve done an exhaustive search of the area and this was the only suitable option we found. At this time, there are no other possible options and we won’t be pursuing other options. “We have to accept (cell) service within this area will be poor in the future.” Ad a m s s u g g e s t e d Telus look at the north east corner of the park, which is more wooded and away from the splash park, playground and tennis courts. Hall said that location wouldn’t work because the tower would have to be at least 68 metres high to make it out of the trees and the site puts it too far away to have much impact on cell coverage. “It is unfortunate, we were trying to respond to customer demand for better cellular coverage,” Hall said. “We were hearing from a lot of people in the community.” But during Telus’ pub-

lic consultation period, the company largely only heard from residents opposed to the tower. Nan Latchford, who worked on behalf of the critics, presented council and Telus with a 125-signature petition protesting the tower. Most expressed health concerns and didn’t like the idea of a cell tower being in a park where children play. Latchford said she is thankful that council took everyone’s concerns to heart when making its decision. “I’m very grateful for the decision the council has made, and I’m saying that on behalf of everyone I’m representing,” Latchford said. “I did not expect that result but I was hoping for it.” Latchford said she’s also being cautious in celebrating just yet. She’s concerned Telus will go to Industry Canada to appeal council’s decision and said she plans to send a letter to Industry Canada asking them to respect council’s decision. Had council approved the tower, it would have gained $15,000 a year in licence fees from Telus.

Liberal cabinet rookies handed hot files

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

There are nine new faces in Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet, seven of them elected to the B.C. legislature for the first time on May 14. They have been handed some of the hottest problems, and Clark’s marching orders in “mandate letters” for each ministry. And this is the start of a fouryear term, when unpopular reforms are attempted. Take Amrik Virk, the former RCMP inspector from Surrey who’s suddenly in charge of advanced education. His mandate includes: “Review the student loan program to make recommendations for improvement to ensure the loan program is meeting the needs of today’s students.” Virk must also set targets to “match the skills we need with the skills we are

graduating” and require post-secondary schools to “ensure student seats are being filled.” B.C. can’t afford to keep cranking out university grads with $50,000 in debt and no job prospects in a system that’s subsidized 65 per cent. Virk will be working closely with Education Minister Peter Fassbender, who must “ensure seamless transitions” from high school to the workforce for postsecondary trades and apprenticeships. In his spare time, Fassbender is to overhaul the school district bargaining agency and achieve a 10-year peace with the teachers’ union.  Justice Minister Suzanne Anton has worked as a Crown prosecutor, so she’ll have some insight into the system that still grapples with Stanley Cup rioters

from two summers ago. Her orders are to get traffic tickets and other administrative penalties out of the courts, keep working on integrating police fiefdoms and generally treat the constipation that afflicts law enforcement today. Oh, and get that new Okanagan prison built, to relieve a system that has inmates living in tents. And examine whether to spin off the Liquor Distribution Branch into a Crown corporation, a possible prelude to selling it. Transportation Minister Todd Stone’s first test was a grilling by the Vancouver media. Yup, this Kamloops hayseed has been to the Big Smoke a few times, ridden that fancy SkyTrain and taken the odd ferry, too. Now he has to impose the ferry route

reductions that have been worked on by two previous ministers, and push Metro Vancouver through a referendum on ways to fund its own transit. If more tolls or taxes are going to be implemented, now is the time. Coralee Oakes has made a political leap from Quesnel city hall to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. One of her key tasks is to invent a framework for a “rural dividend” from liquefied natural gas development in northwestern B.C. Oakes has to figure out how to “better provide provincial support” to sport and cultural organizations, but do it with no new money. All ministers have strict instructions to balance their lean budgets and take

City proposes four-way stop for Merecroft and Alder intersection Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Council wants to convert the intersection at Merecroft and Alder into a four-way stop as soon as possible. City staff earlier recommended council wait until 2014 because the budget has already been set for this year. Council, however, had other ideas and chose to take the money from the road department’s existing operating budget to immediately implement the new traffic pattern. It’s expected to cost $2,300 to add two more stop signs at the intersection and put in road markings. It will cost another $2,500 to remove the flashing pedestrian light currently stationed at that

intersection. Coun. Ron Kerr said he’s purposely been driving down Alder several times in the past couple of weeks to investigate the issues plaguing Alder first-hand. “I’m totally amazed by the amount of traffic that travels on that road and the speed that it travels on that road,” Kerr said. “It looks like Dogwood, really, half the time and that particular intersection is a problem. I’ve got concerns for pedestrians using the crosswalk there.” City staff were recommending council improve traffic control at the Alder and Merecroft intersection after reviewing a traffic count conducted by the city this spring.

THEY SAID IT: “i’m totally amazed by the amount of traffic that travels on that road and the speed that it travels on that road.”

– Coun. Ron Kerr

Drew Hadfield, the city’s transportation manager, suggested a four-way stop after ruling out a roundabout due to lack of space and nixing a traffic light because council has budgeted for only one traffic signal in 2014 and there are other intersections that are a higher priority. Staff, however, suggested council wait on the Alder and Merecroft

intersection until an Alder Street review, scheduled for this fall, is complete. Coun. Mary Storry said she would prefer not to wait but agreed with staff on choosing a four-way stop over other options so that the intersection at the top of her wish list for a traffic light – Petersen and 14th Avenue – doesn’t get bumped. “I don’t want to delay getting this four-way stop in,” Storry said. “I certainly agree with the principle behind our staff ’s recommendation regarding that we wait for a corridor review because I know when we fix one problem, we create another, and then we blame city hall staff. So I totally understand but I think we have to go out

on a limb on this one.” Council’s decision comes just two weeks after Alder Street resident Ted Haylow appeared before council, asking for changes to slow down speeding traffic. “Ever since the reconfiguration to the lights on Dogwood and the modifications to the roadways on Murphy Street and Highway 19A, Alder Street has become a freeway for speeders and heavy traffic,” Haylow said. “Cars constantly speed, tail gate and most of all, drive without due care and attention. Our patience has run out; they use stop signs to slow traffic on four-lane roads in Palm Springs. Let’s learn something to save our roads and our lives.”

Shortcuts to a cultivating that lush lawn There are one million acres of lawn across the country. Many homeowners aspire to having a lush, green lawn as the showcase of their properties. The front lawn can make a statement and indicate to passersby the property owners’ personalities and design preferences. Lawn care takes some dedication and hard work, but there are certain ways to cut down on the amount of effort required to maintain a landscape. By employing

a few different shortcuts, you can have a healthy, lush lawn without spending all of your free time cutting the grass or pruning the trees. n Stop weeds at the start. Weeding is one of the most time-consuming parts of maintaining a lawn. Weeds can proliferate throughout the lawn if not addressed in a timely manner. Once weeds take root they can become a nuisance, so it’s best to treat weeds before they even have a chance to sprout. Apply

a preemergent weed control product as soon as possible in the spring and then reapply it about three months later to ensure weeds are eradicated. That equates to much less tedious lawn maintenance during the season. n Plant a urine-resistant grass. Having a dog and maintaining a lush lawn has always been a particular conundrum for homeowners. Dog urine is high in nitrogen. While nitrogen, when applied in the correct

ratio, can be a lawngrowth stimulant, in the large concentration that occurs in pet urine, it causes the grass to dry up and burn, resulting in bare spots. Replanting with urine-resistant grasses can help cut down on the level of damage to the lawn from your own pet or pets that happen to make potty stops on your property. The grasses most resistant to urine tend to be perennial ryegrasses and fescues. n Wake up and water. Watering in the early mornings saves time and

energy in the long run by fostering a tougher, more drought-resistant lawn. If you water early in the day, less water will be lost to evaporation. Limit watering to a few times per week, and less if you have had adequate rain. Avoid watering at night, which can expose the lawn to bacteria and attract insects. n Let clippings fly. Mulching mowers, or those that just distribute clippings on the lawn as you go, can be healthier for the grass. They will serve as fertilizer and redistribute nutrients to the lawn as they breakdown into the soil. Leaving clippings on the lawn will fulfill about 25 per cent of fertilizer requirements. n Mow less often. Raise the mower’s blade so that the grass is longer in between cuttings. The taller grass will shade the soil and block weeds from germinating. It also helps improve soil’s moisture retention.

Mother and daughter charged with fraud A mother and daughter have been arrested in connection with a string of frauds that occurred in several Vancouver Island communities. Campbell River isn’t believed to be one of the communities where the alleged offences took place, but just above every town from Courtenay south was on the “hit list.” “From January 2011 to March 2012 hundreds of individual credit card frauds were committed in communities throughout Vancouver Island by a group of prolific offenders,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen in a news release. The frauds in some cases had never been reported to local police and the investigation involved extensive follow-up with banks, merchants and partner agencies. “These arrests and charges represent a significant success and disruption of ongoing financial crimes,” said Insp. John Ibbotson. “This is an excellent example of the RCMP Federal Financial Integrity investigators successfully tackling an organized crime group and their involvement in financial crime and then working with our regional policing partners to locate and arrest the suspects.”

POLICE BEAT

Christine Mauro, 46, is facing six counts of fraud under $5,000 and three counts for using credit card data. Her mother, Karen Mauro, 63, is charged with nine counts of fraud under $5,000 and another nine for using credit card data. The pair is believed to be two key members of a four-person crime group. Christine and Karen Mauro made their first appearance in Victoria provincial court on June 13, and were released on extensive conditions. They are presently under house arrest. “Consistent with financial crimes of this nature, credit cards were altered and unauthorized credit card data was used to purchase high-end electronics, furniture, merchandise and gift cards,” said Insp. Ibbotson. “The estimated financial loss to the merchants and the bank card issuers was over $90,000, and would have continued unchecked if not for the diligence of RCMP Financial Integrity investigators.”

Miners memorialized Mi ne rs f rom t he Campbell River area and NDP MLA Claire Trevena met on Saturday to commemorate their fallen brothers on Miner’s Memorial Day at Sequoia Park. The attendants laid flower wreaths at the base of a memorial cairn, celebrating the lives of those, past and present, who lost their lives while providing for their families. This cairn was initially placed by CAW workers in the wake of the May 1992 accident at Westray Mine in Nova Scotia. The Myra Falls mine in

Campbell River last saw a fatality in 2006, while Quinsam Coal saw the death of two miners in 1998. Miner’s Memorial Day was conceived after a burst rock killed four workers in Sudbury in 1984. Vancouver Island’s history of coal mining in the late 19th and early 20 th century claimed the lives of many, and a ceremony was also held in Cumberland in commemoration.

Drive Smart BC How Far Can You See When Driving at Night? Freeways in British Columbia are governed by a posted speed limit of 110 km/h and for the most part are only lit by a driver’s headlights at night. The opposing lanes are fairly close together and require the use of low beam headlamps when other traffic approaches. When the highway is busy drivers are often forced to travel long distances on low beam. How safe is this at 110 km/h?

More than one year after a high-profile case involving a resident cutting down an eagle tree, council is trying to ensure it doesn’t happen again. After the incident in February, 2012, around Galerno Road, Mayor Walter Jakeway was dismayed to find the city did not have any penalties for chopping down eagle nesting trees. That prompted the mayor to bring forward a motion, approved by council at a meeting in early March, directing city staff to look into options for a bylaw to protect eagle trees. “We need to make something happen here so we don’t end up with another terrible event

like we had a year ago,” Jakeway said at the time. “It was more than a year ago that a fairly substantial eagle tree was cut down near Rockland Road. “At that time it was discovered that we didn’t have any teeth to our bylaw and I haven’t heard any feedback from staff in the past year on this and I don’t want it to slip away.” In last year’s incident, the tree was registered in the province’s nest tree database and mapped in the city’s Sustainable Official Community Plan as an environmentally sensitive area and protected under the Provincial Wildlife Act. Currently, the province is in charge of enforcing eagle nest tree protection and levying any fines while the city sim-

ply uses permit guidelines to restrict a property owner from causing a disturbance within a 60-metre area around an eagle nest. However, the city does not have fines or penalties written into law. At Tuesday’s council meeting, staff presented a report with options for a new bylaw. “Staff are currently preparing a draft Environmental Protection Bylaw (in regards to watercourse and storm drainage protection) and an efficient approach would be to include a section on bald eagle nest tree habitat,” said Terri Martin, the city’s environmental co-ordinator in a report to council. Martin said the bylaw could include a prohibition on the removal or damage of any tree pre-

downriggers off a boat inside the compound. One is an older plug-in style and the other is a newer model. This may be related to the attempt break and enter to Boatland on Friday June 21. If you know anything about this crime or the whereabouts of the downriggers, call the Campbell River RCMP or Crime Stoppers.

can count as a separate offence. “The proposed prohibitions would enable ticketing for non-compliance with the bald eagle nest tree development permit process for mapped nest sites included in the SOCP (sustainable official community plan),” Martin said. “New bald eagle nest sites would also be subject to the bylaw which would provide some protection to the nest tree until the SOCP is amended to include the location and the broader buffer protection.” Council agreed with Martin’s recommendations and elected to have staff draft a bylaw prohibiting the cutting and damage of eagle nesting habitat, including trees.

Transport Canada says that the low beam lighting system of most vehicles allows a driver to see about 140 meters. It may seem further, but after that point most of the light is on the shoulder and the right ditch rather than on the lane ahead. This applies to both halogen headlights and the new gaseous discharge lamps. The 45 meter distance between the end of the stopping distance and the end of the sight distance is travelled in less than a second and a half. This is not a lot of time for a driver to react if they are not looking at the part of the roadway the obstruction is in, or are not completely alert and expecting to take action. The gist of the calculation is that 110 km/h may not be a good night speed for drivers. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic law enforcement experience.

The average vehicle takes about 64 meters to slide to a wheels locked panic stop at 110 km/h. Some may stop a bit faster and more than a few will take longer, particularly pickup trucks and other larger vehicles. A driver who is alert and expecting problems will likely have about one second pass between identifying something on the road and actually getting the brakes applied. This means a further 31 meters of travel, bringing our total stopping distance to 95 meters.

What you need to know about Leptospirosis Where: Simms Millennium Park in Courtenay Contributed by: Dr. Rodney Nast, Campbell River Veterinary Hospital Leptospirosis is a zoonotic (can transmit from animals to humans) bacterial disease that appears to be becoming more prevalent in Canada. The number of cases of leptospirosis in dogs in Canada has increased markedly in the last decade. Pets can become infected with leptospires through contact with infected urine from another animal shedding the bacteria, via venereal or placental transfer, through bite wounds, or ingestion of infected tissues. Indirect transmission can occur through exposure of pets to water sources, soil, food, or bedding that is contaminated with infected urine or other tissues. Leptospires can penetrate mucous membranes, wet or macerated skin, or broken skin. As we expand into the surrounding wilderness, pets may be exposed to more wildlife, such as raccoons, rats, mice, squirrels, or deer that are infected with leptospirosis. So what do the symptoms of Leptospirosis look like in our pets? The clinical signs of leptospirosis vary and are nonspecific.

Sometimes pets do not have any symptoms. Common clinical signs have been reported in dogs. These include: fever, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, refusal to eat, severe muscle pain, and jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes).In the end leptospirosis causes acute Liver and Kidney failure and it is life threatening. So how do we prevent this infection? First, since rodents can carry and spread the infection, control their local population by keeping garbage and compost secured, and perhaps contact an expert in pest control. Second, talk to your veterinarian about vaccination against leptospirosis. The vaccine will help boost the pet’s immunity to leptospires and will provide some protection should he/she contact the organism. To find out more about leptospirosis I recommend contacting your family veterinarian and discussing this disease and whether your furry companion could be at risk.

over the past few years and everything should be completed by 2014. “I’d like to say it’s been a breeze…it’s been a long and difficult project,” Ewart admitted. However, in spite of construction delays, unco-operative weather and other “little emergencies,” the project was on-target and has resulted in an almostnew facility. “We got the full meal deal here – we got the full rebuild!” Ewart said. North Island MP John Duncan was on hand for the opening on behalf of federal Fisheries minister Keith Ashfield. “I am delighted to be here today to mark a significant milestone in the life of the Quinsam River Hatchery in beautiful Campbell River – the Salmon Capital of the World,” said Duncan. “This hatchery is vital to the British Columbia salmon industry. Each year it produces 12 million coho, chinook and pink salmon that help sustain stocks in the Campbell and Quinsam rivers, and supports important commercial, recreational and aborigi-

Getting schooled in mixed martial arts AlistAir tAylor Campbell RiveR miRRoR

M

ixed Martial Arts is now an elective at Timberline Secondary School. For the fall semester, 25 Timberline students have elected to take a three-day-a-week mixed martial arts (MMA) program made possible through a partnership between the school and Pure Martial Arts & Fitness gym in Campbell River. It was a popular option when it appeared in the course outlines. “About 90 kids selected it as a first-choice elective,” said Paul Murphy, the Timberline teacher who came up with the idea. Those 90 names were whittled down to 25 as part of this first-ever offering of a program like this that Murphy is aware of. An MMA enthusiast himself and a high school wrestling coach, Murphy approached Jodey Ingalls of Pure Martial Arts to see if he was interested in the concept. From there it was a matter of applying to the school board for approval. Timberline principal Kevin Harrison made a presentation to the board of school trustees which approved the course. In all, it took three months from concept to approval and from September to January, the students will be starting their day three days a week at Pure Martial

Arts’ gym on the Island Highway across from Robert V. Ostler Park. Although a high school MMA program is a unique concept, it may have been helped by the fact that the school district already has a hockey academy,

Murphy said. In fact, the MMA program and the hockey academy will be sharing transportation to keep the cost down. Ingalls, head coach and owner of Pure Martial Arts, is donating the gym and providing four or five MMA experts

as instructors. Ingalls said he is happy to give something back to the community. Mixed Martial Arts changed his life as a youth and he believes these Timberline students will gain a lot physically as well as personally from being

involved in the sport. Like all martial arts, MMA puts an emphasis on respect, discipline and fitness. “I am looking forward to seeing how it affects the kids,” Ingalls said. Ingalls has worked with schools in the past in dealing with the issue of fight clubs and other dangerously uncontrolled fighting. This program allows the youths to learn about the sport in a safe and controlled environment. They will be exposed to techniques of Muay Thai, Ju Jitsu, and Mixed Martial Arts. But there will be no “live striking” or contact to the head. The program has approval for one semester and Murphy and Ingalls hope it’s the beginning of something ongoing. The students will be expected to show up for their sessions at 8:30 a.m., which is 25 minutes before school usually starts. Murphy said each family was contacted to point out that a serious level of commitment required from the student. The students will see that Pure Martial Arts’ gym is a professional operation. Murphy said the program appealed to a range of students from rep hockey players to students who have never been involved in formal athletics before. There will be some who want to compete and others who are just in it for the exercise. There are also nine girls involved in the program.

Carihi teacher Wayne Demerse has been nominated for a Governor General’s Award for excellence in teaching.

Teacher takes students on a voyage through history and earns national recognition

The sinking of a British passenger ship during the First World War is hitting close to home for Grade 11 students at Carihi Secondary School. Students in Wayne Demerse’s classes not only read firsthand accounts from the 1915 Victoria Times newspapers, they are also ‘re-living’ the event.  Students are each handed a laminated info-card with the name and description of a passenger from the ill-fated voyage and assume these characters for the duration of the class. A research assignment aimed to sift through factors that contributed to the tragedy follows. The students are encouraged to exercise the skills of historians to draw their own conclusions. Demerse believes that through individual research and a ‘personal connection’, his students learning about the German sinking of the HMS Lusitania during World War I will be enriched.  For Demerse’s innovative and interactive teaching approach, Canada’s History Society has named him as a finalist for the 2013 Governor General’s History Awards for Excellence in Teaching.  Deborah Morrison, CEO of Canada’s History Society emphasized, “Canada’s most passionate educators are now turning to social media, cyberspace and digitized projects to create interactive Continued on A17

Colwood man cycles Island end to end to end for MS Black Press

David Cox will take a months-long twowheeled journey cycling the Island tip to tip to tip in a bid to end Multiple Sclerosis. The 68-year-old will ride to Port Hardy and back for the endMS cause and embarked from his Triangle Mountain home on his third unsupported Van Isle End to End to endMS early this morning. “I get to start off going down a hill,” the Colwood man said indicating his steep driveway. “Really, the idea was to start at home and end at home.” At first the then-Torontonian was just “looking for a good organized bike ride”. The next year it got personal, his niece was diagnosed with MS. Within six months she was confined to a wheelchair. Cox organized a dynamic team of RBC fundraising riders and now is in his 19th year of MS bike rides. “I’m going to raise money … that’s gravy,” he said. “It keeps the whole concept that this disease does not have a cure and make people aware of it.” When he retired to B.C.

in 2005, Cox continued to ride fundraisers and raise awareness, spending three years on the board for the MS Society’s South and Central Island chapter. In 2009, he started the Islandwide ride that became biannual after an injury in 2010. The idea is to put his own “blood, sweat and tears” into the effort. “There’s a lot of competing charities out there looking for dollars,” he explained. So Cox packed his 40 pounds of baggage on his 28-pound bike and headed out of Colwood to make his way to Port Hardy and back to Shawnigan in time for the Cowichan Valley Grape Escape MS ride that starts July 6. “My objective is to always get back for that,” he said. “I go to the (Shawnigan Lake) school, set up my tent and I’m ready to go in the morning.” He’ll do the two-day tour then head home to the West Shore. The primary goal is awareness and respect, he feels is lacking in day-to-day life, illustrated by a visit to his niece Leslie a few months ago. “I was astounded at the rudeness of people who made her stop, made her get out of the way,” he

said of his wheelchairbound relative. “It’s important for people to recognize there’s folks out there who don’t have the quality of life we have. If they want to make a donation, all the better.” He’s nearing his current fundraising goal of $3,000. “If it looks like it will be exceeded, I bump it up again,” he explained. “Seems better to have an objective that is harder to obtain than one that is easily exceeded.” To donate visit www. msbiketours.ca and

ho remembers the distinctive sound of roller skates on the wooden floor of the gymnasium in the old community hall in Campbell River? Or better yet the spectacular Roller Follies? Long before the days of ice skating at the arena or inline skating along the Seawalk, the Campbell River Roller Skating Club offered roller skating classes to the children of Campbell River. Iris Millmore, an experienced skater from Britain, was instrumental in establishing this club in Campbell River in 1963. Millmore had the distinction of having won a Bronze medal for roller skating in Britain. A group of early C.R. Roller Skating club students are featured in this clipping from the Campbell River Courier newspaper. (See Image 1) As well as offering lessons to budding skaters the club would hold an annual event to showcase their skating abilities. Known as the “Roller Follies”, it was highly anticipated and parents and relatives would fill the bleachers at the hall in

Nutting Greatly missed by her beloved husband Ted, her children Mike and Catherine (Omid), and her dear grandchildren Thairah and Mikylee. We remember Ellen at the campsite, in the boat, cooking dinners, making music. We remember the cross-country skiing, the snow forts, the canned fruit, the fresh bread, the band trips, the cub camps, the rows of flowers in the vegetable garden, the summer vacations, and the Christmas mornings. We remember her cheering us on. Ellen was very active in the Sayward and Campbell River communities, volunteering on committees, and helping at the school. She had many hobbies, from the trombone and piano to steel-head fishing, oil painting, and choral music. She was always willing to help those in need, and she touched many lives. She was kind-hearted, scrupulous, funny, and a straighttalker. No service by request of the deceased

Claire Liliane McDavid June 27, 1922 June 24, 2013

Claire Liliane McDavid of Campbell River passed away peacefully on June 24, 2013 surrounded by her loving family. Claire was born in Baker Brook, New Brunswick on June 27, 1922. She is survived by her three children; Anne-Marie Vorkampff (Max), Tonia Babin (Gary) and Anthony Abbis (Johanne); her grandchildren, Scott (Shannon), Michael (Lauren), Sara and Taylor and her great-grandchildren; Max, Anne-Marie, Tessa and Maggie as well as many other family and friends. Claire is preceded in death by her husbands Edmund Abbis and N. Baxter McDavid. The family of Claire McDavid wishes to thank the kind ladies of Campbell River Home and Community Support and all the nurses who looked after our Mom while in ICU and 3 North. A special thank you to Dr. Brian Carswell who looked after Mom for over 25 years. Mom was a warm-hearted person who had many interests and even more friends in her life. As a young woman she was one of the few female scout leaders in New Brunswick. She was an accomplished curler and enjoyed travelling to Bonspiels throughout Eastern Canada; collecting friends, memories and stories along the way. For many years as a volunteer, she had positions of responsibility with the Canadian Cancer Society. Mom loved the ocean and throughout her life she enjoyed vacationing near the seaside most recently in her beloved Tofino. The constant thread that ran through her life was her love of friends and family. She was gracious, compassionate, quick to smile and to offer a welcoming hug. Very lucky are those who got to know her well. According to Claire’s wishes, a private family gathering will take place. Sutton’s Funeral Home is trusted with arrangements. 250287-4812.
