Hope and anger greet decision to close schools

I

MORE THAN 200 people attended board meeting Wednesday. BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Small gesture, big leap

Robert Assaf is deemed a graduate of Dover Bay Secondary School with a flip of his mortarboard tassel by Robyn Gray, school principal, Thursday. Dover Bay kicked off this year’s series of Nanaimo high school graduation ceremonies when more than 240 students received their diplomas and parting words of encouragement from school staff members. For more photos, please visit www.nanaimobulletin.com.

Nanaimo school trustees voted to close five school sites, turn a secondary school into an elementary school and extend consultations on two more schools proposed for closure at Wednesday’s board meeting. Almost 200 parents, students and district employees packed into Nanaimo District Secondary School’s gymnasium to hear trustees debate the proposed 10-year facilities plan, which calls for major changes, including school closures, rebuilding facilities and adding enrichment programs. Dave Hutchinson, superintendent of schools, told the crowd the district’s fiscal challenges have meant trustees have been cutting and slashing budgets for a decade, 40 per cent of school facilities are beyond their useful life and while Nanaimo and Ladysmith populations have increased by 17,000 since 2001, district enrolment has decreased by more than 3,500 students in that same time frame. “We have definitely spread ourselves too thin over too many facilities and you can actually see the impact of that on student learning,” he said. “We have to focus on significant structural

changes so we can manage the budget challenges.” In the south end, trustees voted to close South Wellington this year, Cedar Secondary at the end of next year and Woodbank Primary and North Cedar Intermediate in June 2015, reopening the Cedar Secondary building as an elementary school in the 2015-16 school year. Secondary students in Cedar can attend either John Barsby or Ladysmith Secondary. The decision to close South Wellington was met with shouts of dismay from emotional parents and community members, some of whom walked out of the meeting as soon as trustees passed the bylaw. The school board also decided to close the buildings that house the junior and senior learning alternatives programs, moving both programs to NDSS with the majority of junior learning alternatives students accommodated at their catchment schools. Staff proposed a number of changes to the plan that were accepted by trustees, including extending school closure consultation periods for North Oyster and Davis Road elementary schools until December to consider alternatives; reconfiguring Ladysmith Secondary School as a Grade 7-12 school instead of adding Grades 6 and 7 to the school; and postponing the relocation of Woodlands Secondary students to NDSS until a new facility is built there. ◆ See ‘CONSULTATION’ /4

Fees increasing for parks and rec activities

I

couNcil approvES raising costs to help pay for programs. By ToBy Gorman The News BulleTiN

People who use Nanaimo’s parks and recreation facilities will be paying more starting September. A six-month review and city council approval has resulted in an increase in user fees for many parks and recreation services in Nanaimo. Council approved the bylaw in a 5-3 vote Monday to amend fees and rentals for many fields and facilities. The new fee schedule, which sees increases from two to four

per cent, goes into effect Sept. 1 and will expire Aug. 31, 2016. Fee schedules are revised every three years, though some fees go up annually while others remain stagnant for years. General admissions to gyms, pools and arenas will increase six per cent over the next three years, according to a city report. Coun. Ted Greves said costs need to be recovered somehow, using a $2.9-million annual shortfall at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre as an example. “We’re very cognizant of the fact that money has to be raised one way or another,” he said. “I have an example of NAC operating expenses. They were $3.8 million, and if you add debt to that it comes to $4.5 million. The revenue we get from NAC

is $1.6 million so that leaves us $2.9 million in the red that someone has to pay for. So fees only cover 35 per cent of the cost of operating NAC, so either it’s got to be the taxpayers who pay for it through their taxes or user pay.” Beban Park requires taxpayer subsidies of more than $2 million annually. Coun. Jim Kipp voted against the bylaw, saying the increases are significantly higher than recent cost of living increases, and that facilities are simply becoming too expensive. “I can’t support this currently. We looked at saying this increase is in the range of cost of living and I heard [Sunday] the cost of living is 0.7 per cent. We talked about three and four per cent average on these

increases. I just can’t support it.” The fee hikes are intended to bring in an additional $50,000 in revenue annually. “To me it’s getting too expensive for people to take their kids [to rec facilities],” said Kipp. The increase will help pay for programs that allow people to use the facilities for free or at a deep discount. Currently, the Leisure Economic Access Program allows those who show they can’t afford it 50 free visits annually to rec facilities, people aged 80-plus are free, students in Grades 5 and 6 enjoy a free Swim to Survive program, and three-month, six-month and annual rec passes are sold at a heavy discount. Greves said the 80-plus pro-

gram was debated heavily, but at the end of the discussions was kept in. Coun. Diana Johnstone, who sits as chairwoman of the parks, recreation and culture committee, said she felt the process has been well thought out over the past six months, while Coun. Bill McKay said new opportunities need to be pursued if the city is hesitant to cut services but wants to keep facilities affordable. “We need to consider new revenue streams, possibly corporate sponsorships,” said McKay. “Keep levels down low as opposed to constantly increasing them in the same old fashion.” For a complete list of new fees, visit www.nanaimo.ca. reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Development continues on riparian variance policy Nanaimo city council received an update on its riparian variance policy review Monday. Concerned that an increase in riparian setback variance requests were being applied for, in December council moved to “explore ways to incent developers to implement environmental stewardship opportunities.” A stakeholders workshop was held in March with participation from council members, Advisory Committee on Environmental Sustainability, Development Process Review Committee, and provincial and federal representatives, and staff said it expects to develop specific policies to go before council this fall.

lantzville celebrates milestone

I

rESidENTS SharE positives, concerns at open house. By Jenn m c GarriGle The News BulleTiN

Dozens of people showed up at District of Lantzville headquarters to help councillors and staff celebrate the district’s 10th anniversary of incorporation Tuesday. More than 100 people showed up to an open house to help celebrate the milestone, said Mayor Jack de Jong. “We were a little apprehensive initially about having this,” he said. “The apprehension was, would people show up, would there be interest? “We had a good showing of people. It really exceeded all of our expectations.” The district will hold an extension of Tuesday’s open house during the community’s annual Minetown Day celebration

JENN McGARRIGLE/ThE NEws BuLLETIN

Lynne Wilson, a Lantzville resident for the past 13 years, looks at some of the information displays at Tuesday’s open house celebrating the district’s 10th anniversary of incorporation.

Sept. 7, which celebrates the district’s coal mining roots, including something special for the kids, de Jong added. The open house featured coffee, cake and information boards celebrating different achievements in the community over the past 10 years, including

renovations at the municipal hall, the sanitary sewer collection project, the water quality protection and storage project, and construction of a trail along the E&N Railway. De Jong said residents who stopped by expressed support for resolving the water issue in the com-

munity – Nanaimo city council recently voted to proceed with finalizing a water supply agreement with the district that would provide Upper Lantzville residents and businesses with water. If the agreement is signed, it would be two years before the community gets connected, so there is still work to do to prepare for this, he said. De Jong also heard some concerns about speeding along Lantzville Road – a couple of residents mentioned this is still a problem despite the district recently installing two speed bumps on the roadway – but many just showed up to celebrate. “Most of it was congratulations on the 10 years,” he said. “There’s a general level of contentment, where this community is going.” For more information on the community and other projects, please visit the district’s website at www. lantzville.ca. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

Nanaimo News Bulletin 3

Saturday edition ceases publication this month The News Bulletin will no longer publish a Saturday edition. The paper’s parent company, Black Press, made the decision last month to eliminate the Saturday edition to focus on strengthening the Tuesday and Thursday issues. Publisher Maurice Donn said the move was not indicative of the company’s earnings, but rather a shift in how people read newspapers today. “Families are busy on the weekends and want news and information about activities in Nanaimo throughout the week to allow them to make the most of their time,” he said. “Our advertisers want to get that information to them, and the best place for that is our Tuesday and Thursday editions.” The Saturday edition was introduced more than nine years ago, but was less popular than other issues. Regular sections such as Coastal Living, Active Life and business were a feature of the weekend edition, and will move into the News Bulletin’s Tuesday issue. As well, regular columnists, such as Ian Thorpe, David Suzuki and Marjorie Stewart will see their writing continue to be published in either Tuesday or Thursday editions. Black Press’s commitment to its community newspaper in Nanaimo remains strong. “We’re looking forward to offering readers more news, arts and sports in our larger Tuesday and Thursday issues,” Donn said.

Downtown business improvement area mandate approved by members By ToBy Gorman The News BulleTiN

Nanaimo’s two downtown business improvement areas have the support of the majority of downtown property and business owners, but critics say that the organization mandated to improve the city core should be weaned off its taxpayer handout. An alternate approval process issued by the city to property and business owners downtown revealed in Business Improvement Area 1, 20.9 per cent – owners of 68 of 326 parcels – representing 15 per cent of the $214 million in land assessment, voted against a renewal bylaw. That number dropped to 14.7 per cent, or 10 of 68 parcels, representing $3.9 of $38 million in land assessment, in BIA 2. According to the Community Charter, in order for the petition to fail, at least 50 per cent of

owners or owners of land parcels that represent half of the land value in the BIA must file against the BIA for the petition to be valid. Jim Taylor, representing the newly formed Nanaimo Ratepayers Association, said while the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association, the organization mandated with collecting BIA levies and rejuvenating downtown, does good work, it is time to stop matching the funds its collects with taxpayer money. DNBIA collects about $250,000 in levies from property and business owners in BIA 1 and BIA 2. The city matches those funds. “There are a lot of other municipalities in B.C. that have BIAs but Nanaimo is the only one where the city matches funds,” said Taylor. “There is no doubt the city is spending lots of money trying to breathe life

back into downtown Nanaimo ... but the Nanaimo Ratepayers Association is opposed to what is basically an advertising and promotional organization aimed at bringing business into the downtown core. It seems another example of city hall meddling in the marketplace.” Taylor added that while the appearance of downtown has been improved, it is still facing challenges as a business centre. “This is after 10 years of subsidies being paid to the DNBIA,” said Taylor. “By now, business in the downtown core should be able to attract and retain business without a million-dollar handout from the Nanaimo taxpayer.” The city has spent an estimated $1.1 million matching levies paid to the DNBIA and its predecessors since 2001. BIAs have operated in Nanaimo since the late 1980s under various bylaws and organizations.

Many not in favour of continuing BIAs often cite DNBIA salaries, which amount to about 60 per cent, as the reason for opposition. A few years ago, with many business and property owners unhappy with the returns they were receiving for their levy payments, a similar alternate approval process came very close to failing, resulting in a remake in the BIA constitution, the dismantling of the Downtown Nanaimo Partnership Society and the creation of the current DNBIA. The alternate approval process is a city-initiated mailout to BIA property owners and businesses that requires a response to be counted. City watchdog Ron Bolin said the levies are a good form of self-support, but called the matching city funds “a form of extorted charity to the unneedy.” He suggested gradual reduction in grant funding over

the five-year period of the new term council approved Monday, a proposal Coun. Fred Pattje wasn’t ready to accept. “I’m a long way from yanking any funding from the DNBIA at this point,” said Pattje, adding the DNBIA is working hard to improve the downtown area. Coun. Jim Kipp said he appreciates downtown revitalization, but questioned the use of public funds at a time when the city is raising recreational facility rates and looking at other ways to save or generate more revenue. “Parks and rec is looking at swimming pool fees because we’re trying to scrape up about $50,000 a year,” said Kipp. “It’s a tough one, we are the only city in B.C. that funds its [BIA], but I understand originally it was just supposed to be seed money to get this going so I have some concerns with it.”

Consultation extended for North Oyster ton open in 2009, said the promise was that there was going to be more kids in the school and instead there are fewer. “Am I happy with closing schools? No,” she said. “I feel sad that these people have to lose their community schools.” Trustee Sharon Welch said the board recognizes that some people are upset about the school closures, but if the district doesn’t move ahead with this plan, schools are going to lose programs and other supports down the road. Parents expressed a mixture of hope and sadness, relief and frustration after the meeting. Janis Chung, a Pauline Haarer parent, is optimistic about the plan. “If the experts are saying that this is going to free up money and allow our

u From /1 Motions to build an addition to the Hammond Bay Elementary School gym and initiate enrichment programs at Randerson Ridge Elementary School and John Barsby Secondary School passed. Trustee TerryLynn Saunders opposed the decision to close Cedar Secondary, North Cedar and Woodbank. She said at first she was in favour so that students could have more course and program options, but then she remembered the reason a high school was built there – to keep the kids in the community and in school. Cedar students may not be able to access the extra-curricular activities that keep students in school if they go to Barsby, said Saunders. Trustee Donna Allen, who voted to keep South Welling-

schools and our classrooms to get the support they need, then I am going to have to trust that,” she said, adding she would have liked to see a proposal to start up a late French immersion program in the plan. North Oyster parents Wendy Wise and Fiona Steeves felt that in giving the school another year, district staff and trustees had listened to what the community had to say. “It means it’s not going to be a relaxing summer holiday because we have a lot of work to do,” said Wise. “There’s so many opportunities our school has and we have a good building,” said Steeves. “People are ready to be involved in making things happen. I am really sad that Cedar is not going to have a high school.” Tiffany Nelson, whose

daughter attends South Wellington, said the school is a hub for the entire community, not just school-aged families, and many people are frustrated and profoundly disappointed about Wednesday’s decision. “The consultation process was all about going through the motions rather than actually hearing community members,” she said. “We need to have a town hall meeting and see what direction the community wants to take.” Only elements of the plan to be completed in the first two years of the 10-year plan were voted on Wednesday. Staff will now prepare the final facilities plan for submission to the Education Ministry. To view a copy of the plan, please go to www.sd68. bc.ca. reporter@nanaimobulletin.com

It will soon cost international students wishing to attend Nanaimo school district schools a little more money. At Wednesday’s school board meeting, trustees voted to increase international student tuition fees by $500 to $12,000 per student per year, bringing local fees in line with what Qualicum and Cowichan school districts are charging. This school year, the district had 225 full-time international students and the fee change would increase revenues by more than $100,000 if these numbers are maintained, although the district pays a 15-per cent commission to agents on tuition. The homestay application fee is also increasing to $250 from $150 and the fee changes takes effect in the 2014-15 school year. The fee increase was suggested by a consultant the district hired earlier this year to make recommendations on what should go in a 10-year facilities plan.

Enjoy some holiday relief

The Canadian dollar is sinking. Gas prices have been going up for the past month. Banks are making noise about raising mortgage rates. The housing market is cooling. The weather seems changeable on the hour. It must be summer. This Canada Day holiday weekend is the traditional start of vacation season. Time to get away from it all. And with the ever-increasing gloom and doom that seems to drain our optimism and energy at a quickening pace, it’s never been more imperative to tune out and step back. At least for a stretch. Getting away from the workplace, turning down the busyness of our lives is an important change to routine. It reduces anxiety and stress, allows us a chance to recharge, maybe even refocus. Holidays make for happier, more motivated employees. But Canadian holiday entitlements lag behind those enjoyed by workers in many other countries. We get a minimum of 10 working days off depending on the province and tenure of employment. That’s supplemented by five to 10 public statutory holidays, like Canada Day. Australian workers get 20 working days off, plus 10 paid public holidays. Brazilians enjoy 22 working days off, plus a 33 per cent premium on top of their regular pay. Workers in Denmark get 25 work days off plus an additional nine public holidays. German workers get four weeks off plus nine to 13 public holidays. In Finland, the minimum mandated holiday time is 30 days. Even workers in developing countries like India are granted 12 work days a year for holiday. But in the United States there’s absolutely no legal provision for mandated holiday time. Employees are completely at the mercy of their employer. Canadians may not feel we get enough holiday, but at least we get something.

I wouldn’t expect people to hang on Davis’s every word, or to attend every single vote over days within the lower chamber. The workings of parliament and democracy can get pretty dull, when politicians argue points of order, ask for clarification or debate points that leave others scratching their heads as to the relevancy. And that’s where people get bogged down and overwhelmed at the political system. A filibuster is an opportunity to take a step back, look at the big picture and consider what values these people we elect to office are trying to uphold. At its heart, that’s what a filibuster is. It might not make a difference to one piece of legislation but it might inspire another to take up an environmental, human rights or social cause. That’s ultimately what we need – for people to stand up for something. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

Better uses for tax dollars than gallery To the Editor,

Re: Art gallery envisions ‘outstanding’ space, June 27. If you’re a special interest group, whine hard enough and schmooze the right councillors, then you can easily get your hands on whatever Nanaimo tax money you want. The art folk have done just that.

It’s not bad and sad enough that taxpayers keep propping up the dilapidated Nanaimo Centre Stage which should never have been bought with our money in the first place. Now we’re upping the handouts so the downtown art gallery can expand. Has anyone ever been in this place? When I have, no

one else has been in there. The ‘art work’ is expensive. I beg the question, are we just helping out the elite with their hobbies? Our tax money can certainly be spent on more practical and common sense projects like roads, water and emergency services. The majority of our spoon fed council needs to

toughen up, take the soothers out of their mouths and say no to the greedy trough feeders who feel it’s their god-given right to slurp up everyone else’s hard earned money. This from a city council that couldn’t give 4-H kids a few more thousand bucks to run a petting zoo.

Focus on dams deflects surprise move To the Editor,

Re: Disconnect grows over Colliery dams, Letters, June 27. One of my main concerns regarding the dams is what is Nanaimo council hiding? It is doing everything in its power to keep us focused on what is happening with the dams. Is there a raise coming? Are they going to privatize yet something else that we have paid for already? Maybe do away with something that they figure we no longer need? We’ll have to see. “For the people, by the people” hardly applies anymore. Mike Macri Nanoose Bay

Colliery Dam Park a first for many To the Editor,

Re: Council unmoved on dam destruction despite impassioned speakers, June 13. I respectively ask mayor and council for more consideration on the removal of the dams at Colliery Dam Park. I would imagine it a place of many firsts – first kiss, first loves, first walks hand-inhand – and because of it’s serene beauty, possibly chosen by many Nanaimo resi-

By keeping Nanaimo residents focused on preventing the deconstruction of the two Colliery Dam Park dams, council opens the doors to push another agenda through with ease, says letter writer.

dents as the ‘unspoken’ place they wish to be for all eternity as ashes blowing in the wind. So please, before workers start piping out water and destroying this beautiful park, this may be something to reconsider. Once done this can never be changed. Is council going to remove every potential hazard in our city – remove the homes hanging over the cliffs of the Nanaimo Parkway, drain all the lakes homes are built over and pick our beautiful city apart little by little? They must take the

time to find a solution that keeps the residents safe and won’t destroy a beautiful part of Nanaimo.

Decision on dams about compromise To the Editor,

Re: Disconnect grows over Colliery dams, Letters, June 27. There has been much passionate discussion regarding the ‘saving’ of the Colliery Dam Park dams to the point that it has become confusing. For several years the city has been considering what to do with the deteriorating lower and

middle dams and after several studies and a public safety directive from the province, it was decided in camera last October to comply with the directive, remove the dams and restore the lake areas to a natural state. Presumably council selected the least cost option based on information at the time. At the Dec. 17, 2012 meeting it was decided to further study options of dam replacement and rehabilitation. Then at the May 13 meeting, council voted the dams should be replaced even though this

would incur additional costs. The only difference was in the timing of the demolition and replacement work. There are no doubt better consultative processes to manage public projects and perhaps it is not too late to initiate a more inclusive process for the future of the park. However, in the meantime, while the dams have not been ‘saved,’ the lakes will be retained. Experts and nonexperts may disagree on the best way to accomplish the work, but democracy is by its nature a compromise. Fred Kardel Nanaimo

Council’s role is do what’s right Re: City staff highlight risk from dam breach, June 20. City manager Al Kenning said people need to put themselves in the role of a council member. If I was on council, I would never get caught up in political scandal, discuss deals behind closed doors or waste taxpayers’ money. As a council member, I would do the right thing.

Things to consider as retirement approaches

Though many people are delaying retirement, the day will still come when they leave their jobs behind and retire. Retirement can be a difficult adjustment that takes some getting used to, but it can also prove an exciting time, especially for those who planned ahead to ensure their retirement was a time to be cherished and not feared. Whether retirement is right around the corner or still a decade or so away, men and women should consider several factors to make sure their retirement years are an enjoyable time that allows them to live life to the fullest. * Income: Just because you’re no longer working doesn’t mean you won’t have income. Government benefits, retirement accounts and perhaps even some light consulting work are just a few ways retirees can earn an income. Though your retirement income will likely pale in comparison to your income as an adult working full-time, estimate what that income will be so you can get at least an idea of how much will be coming in each month. * Monthly expenses: Once you have an idea of what’s coming in, estimate how much will be going out each month. Certain costs associated with working, such as the cost of commuting and maintaining a professional wardrobe, can be removed from the ledger. Once you have an idea of your projected income and your expenses during retirement, you can get to work on a prospective budget to show you what you will need to live on during retirement.

* Employment: Many people now look at retirement as the end of one career and the beginning of another. As retirement draws closer, men and women might want to consider turning an interest or passion into a second career. Such a move might make retirement more exciting while removing some of the fear of finding enough things to pass the time that many people have with regard to retirement. * Relocation: Where to spend your retirement years is another thing to consider before the big day arrives. Do you, like many retirees, prefer to stay in your own home?Do you want to relocate to a warmer climate or move to another country? Do you want to move closer to your children and grandchildren? Do you want to split your time in separate cities? Is a retirement village something you might be amenable to? Each of these options is different, and each requires a different financial commitment, so carefully consider where you want to spend your retirement and then consider how you can make those wishes a reality. * Medical costs: Private insurance or government-sponsored programs likely won’t cover all of your medical costs, which typically increase as a person ages. There are various ways to prepare for the medical costs that might arise during retirement, and the earlier you start that preparation the less stressful paying for medical care as you age figures to be. Retirement should be an exciting time, especially for those who have spent years planning their retirement to ensure it’s as enjoyable as possible.

How to make informed healthcare decisions The typical healthcare patient has changed in recent years. No longer are individuals putting all of their healthcare decisions into the hands of nurses and doctors. Patients are more informed than ever before and are interested in taking a more active role in their own care. Thanks to the Internet, people are able to access information that, in the past, was not easily available. A few decades ago, medical data may have been elusive and filled with confusing jargon the layperson might not have understood without a crash course in biology. However, today there are different Web sites that clearly spell out information about certain illnesses and diseases. This means that patients may no longer be walking blindly into appointments with doctors. Facing an illness is never easy, and the decision-making abilities could be hampered by emotions and the desire to improve as quickly as possible. Patients who do not have all of the facts may have to rely solely on the expertise of caregivers and physicians when making important healthcare decisions. By knowing the avenues of information, a patient can find assistance with careful decision-making. While learning about an ailment is important, there are some things to consider. * The Internet isn’t foolproof. Many online medical sites are very reliable and offer a wealth of pertinent information. They can be good starting points when seeking out information

on a particular condition. It is in your best interest to visit sites that are wellknown and monitored by respected medical affiliations. Other sites may be peppered with exaggerated claims or misinformation. Therefore, do not go by online information alone. * Don’t self-diagnose. It can be easy to use the Internet as a means to narrowing down symptoms and making assumptions about what ailments you may have. Instead of using the Internet to self-diagnose your condition, leave the diagnosis up to your doctor and rely on online information after you are diagnosed. This can improve your understanding of the condition and any potential treatment options. * Seek other avenues of information. You should never hesitate to seek a second opinion or go to a published medical journal to find out more about a condition. You have rights as a patient to be comfortable with the advice doctors give and be as involved in your treatment as you want to be. * Online forums could be more harm than help. Many people turn to online forums and blogs to gain more insight into particular diseases. While these forums may be good sources of support, information published on these sites could be misleading, inaccurate or unsafe. Before trying any proposed treatment, it is best to consult with your doctor. Having a general knowledge of a medical condition can enable healthcare consumers to make more informed decisions about their situations.

home & community care Ways pets could improve personal health Rather than heading to the pharmacy for solutions to common ailments, a majority of people may be able to stop at the nearest pet store or animal shelter and find a finned or furry remedy instead. Studies that link positive health benefits to pet ownership abound. According to WebMD, one study found that 48 stockbrokers who adopted a pet experienced lower blood pressure readings in stressful situations than did people who did not own pets. Another study found that individuals suffering from serious diseases, such as cancer or AIDS,are far less likely to experience depression if they have a strong tie to a pet. Plus, pets have proven beneficial to seniors struggling with loneliness. Any pet can try a person’s patience at times, expecially when a kitty has used a sofa as a scratching post or when a pooch

needs to be let into the yard at 3 a.m. But for many pet owners, the benefits of having a pet far outweigh the negatives. Here are some of the many ways that pet ownership can be good for your health. * Lower blood pressure: Petting a dog or cat can lower blood pressure, as can watching a fish swim around a tank. Those with hypertension may want to purchase or adopt a companion animal to help lower their blood pressure. * Reduce stress: Stress is something people face on a daily basis. According to a National Health Interview Survey, 75 percent of the general population experiences at least “some stress” every two weeks, and many times that stress is moderate to severe. Research has indicated that when people spend time with a pet their levels of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress, is lowered while their level of serotonin, is increased. * Lower cholesterol: Lifestyle factors associated with pet ownership, particularly a focus on increased physical health and activity, can help lower cholesterol levels. * Fight depression: Many therapists have prescribed pet therapy as a method to alleviating and recovering from depression. A pet is an unconditional friend and can provide that listening ear a person needs to talk through problems. Also, walking and taking care of a pet devotes attention away from problems and inward thinking. * Improve physical activity levels: Heading to the gym is one way to get a workout, but spending an hour walking the dog or tossing around a ball for a game of chase and fetch is another way to get the heart pumping. Many dog owners benefit from the “forced”exercise that goes with daily walks. Some people choose to exercise with their pets, enjoying the companionship and the physical activity. *Reduce stroke incidences: There has been evidence that cat owners are less

likely to suffer strokes than people who do not have cats. Researchers are not sure of the connection, but surmise that cats have a more calming nature than other types of pets. * Greater opportunities for socialization: Humans are social animals and need to interact with others. Pet owners have a tendency to want to share time and experiences with other pet owners. Pets can provide opportunities for people to get together. * ADHD therapy: Children and adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder often benefit from working with a pet or having a pet as a family companion. Playing with a pet is a great way to release excess energy and focus on tasks. Also, a pet with his or her unconditional love can help someone with ADHD overcome selfesteem issues. Similar results are possible when pets are used as therapy animals for children with autism and other behavioral disabilities. * Reduce propensity for allergies: Children who grow up in homes with cats and dogs are less likely to develop common allergies and even asthma, research suggests. In fact, children who live around two or more dogs or cats before their first birthday are less likely to have allergies of any sort, according to a study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association. Research presented at the 10th International Conference on Human Animal Interaction found pet owners were the least likely to have to visit the doctor. The survey of more than 11,000 respondents from Australia, China and Germany found that over a five-year period pet owners made 15 to 20 percent fewer annual visits to the doctor than non-pet owners. The companionship and love pets provide could be a key benefit in promoting good personal health.

Jorgensen, from Qualicum, along with Doug Long of Gabriola Island, won Team WaterSmart’s Drinking Water Week poster and photo contests, respectively, earning the helicopter tour. Team WaterSmart is a partnership between the RDN, Nanaimo, Qualicum Beach, Parksville and Lantzville.

ViU botanist instrumental in development of gardens

Every year at the beginning of July, grandparents and their grandchildren gather together at Vancouver Island University to take part in the one-of-a-kind program,GrandKids University. Spending two days on VIU’s Nanaimo campus experiencing university life, participants get to choose their major from subjects such as chemistry, culinary and sports. Course activities can include doing chemistr y experiments, and learning from a pastry chef how to make the best cupcakes. “We’re also really excited about the XploreSpor tZ option this year,” said coordinator Regan McKeever. “It’s new this year and grandparents and their grandchildren will get to try their hand paddling at Long Lake, learning how to hip hop, and also delving in to sports nutrition and how best to fuel their bodies to keep active.” Participants also get to experience student activities like a barbecue and campus tours and in the evening can take part in organized games. They can even get a taste for life in residence, staying on campus in the university’s dorms.

Not a drop to waste BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

W

ith all the years the City of Nanaimo has had summer water restrictions, conserving the valuable resource has become almost automatic for residents. Bill Sims, manager, water resources, notes a number of factors behind the decline of per capita water consumption in Nanaimo. “Water restrictions have been in place for years and the system we have in place is pretty straightforward. People are aware of it,” he said. Level 1 restrictions run June 1 to Sept. 30 with homeowners of odd numbered houses or complexes allowed to water on odd numbered days, and even days for even numbered homes. No watering is allowed between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. any day. “It has been around for so long, it’s comfortable for people,” said Sims. “But at the same time, people have come around to seeing it as common sense and most wouldn’t waste it. “I think water restrictions has raised awareness of water being precious. I don’t know that we can get the message out any better.” The city stores water in the Jump Lake and South Forks dams and Sims said water levels for this time of year are good despite a slightly drier winter and spring. “We had 20 to 30 per cent less than average snow pack, but we compensated for that

Rust never sleeps, and neither does waste. Here are some quick tips to make your house more efficient: Dishwasher

NEWS BULLETIN FILE

Despite watering restrictions, more conservation-minded residents and a decline in per capita water consumption, the City of Nanaimo keeps a close eye on its supply of the finite resource.

by storing water in the Jump Lake dam a little bit earlier this year,” he said. “June has been a relatively gentle month in terms of precipitation, but we’ve still got water coming into Jump Lake so we’re essentially going to be at full when we start to see the demand for water in July. We’re pretty much at full storage which is exactly where we want to be for this time of year.” But that doesn’t mean an abundance of water for the summer. “Summer is here and people are starting to water their gardens and lawns, but we haven’t seen the really hard hit in water consumption. That

usually occurs in July,” said Sims. “The last two or three years the summers have been kind of wet which takes a lot of stress off our reservoirs and there is a trend across North America of a more conservationminded use of water.” The city has partnered with the Regional District of Nanaimo, Lantzville, the Fairwinds community in Nanoose, Parksville and Qualicum on Team WaterSmart, raising awareness on the region’s water supplies and providing information on water conservation, irrigation initiatives and water quality. So Sims and his crew keep one eye on the

water levels on a daily basis as well as the sky, monitoring both rainfall and sunshine because it doesn’t pay to get complacent. “If we were to get another freight train of a summer like 2003 or 2006 with the population we have now, it would be getting close to the point of calling for Level 2 restrictions (Thursdays and Sundays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for odd numbered houses and Wednesdays and Saturdays for even numbers),” he said.

Fill it up – A dishwasher uses the same amount of energy whether it is full or empty so do only full loads. Be lazy – Most newermodel dishwashers do not require pre-rinsed dishes so don’t do it. Choose wisely – Select the energy-saving cycle, most of the time it will clean regularly soiled dishes just as well as the normal cycle. Be a drip – Drip-dry your dishes to save energy. Turn off the automatic drying function or simply turn off the machine at the end of the washing cycle. Open the door and forget about it. Washer and dryer

Get cold – Heating the water accounts for up to 90 per cent of the energy required for washing your clothes. Use cold water. Fill them up – Washers and dryers use the same amount of energy for a full loads as they do for half loads, so unless you have a half-load setting, fill them. Don’t over-dry – Remove clothes when they are 95 per cent dry and save yourself the ironing while extending the life of your clothes. Also, try to group similar materials together, like towels or denim jeans. Hang ’em high – Use a clothesline – sunlight

and fresh air are free. Bathroom

Slow the flow – Install low-flow shower heads and flow-reducers on your taps. Brush in silence – Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth and save seven to 12 litres of water per a minute. Tighten up – A hot water tap dripping once every second wastes 720 litres of water per month – that’s about 16 hot baths. Tighten taps and replace washers, if necessary. Flush less – Put a plastic pop bottle or milk jug filled with water, pebbles or sand into your toilet tank and save 45 litres of water a day. Make sure to keep the bottle away from the operating parts. Computer

Shut it down – Turn off computer equipment when it is not in use. It is a myth that computers use large amounts of energy when starting up or that constant startups damage components or lead to electrical surges. Go to sleep – When your computer does get left on, make sure you have enabled the sleep power-management function. Unplug – Chargers for equipment like laptops, cell phones and digital cameras draw power w h e n e v e r t h e y a re plugged in, even if they are not charging anything. Source – Fortis B.C.

Custom Homes|Renovations|Design & Build

Once you have set your renovation goals and priorities, you need to find the right contractor to carry out your project. Many homeowners enjoy taking on home improvement projects themselves. Today, there is a tremendous amount of do-it-yourself information available from building supply retailers, specialty television programs, bookstores and on-line. If saving money is the main reason you are considering doing the work yourself, consider talking to a professional renovation contractor first. They may be able to suggest ways they could do the work while controlling costs or they may be able to divide the work into more affordable stages for you. The type of renovation professional you need will depend on what’s involved in your project. • For simple projects involving only one activity such as replacement of roofing, siding or windows, a specialized trade contractor or contract installer may be best. • If your project involves changes to your heating, electrical or plumbing systems, you should consult a licensed trade contractor. • For renovation projects that will involve more than one trade or require structural changes to your home, you should look for a general renovation contractor who can manage all aspects of the work, including development of detailed plans.

SHAMROCKS VISIT tonight in WLA action.

The Nanaimo Timbermen played the Victoria Shamrocks tough the first time the teams played, and the T-men have only gotten better since then. The Coastal Windows Timbermen senior A lacrosse team hosts the Shamrocks tonight (June 29) at Frank Crane Arena. It’s the second meeting of the year for the rival squads. The Shamrocks got a last-minute goal from Scott Ranger to win 9-8 in a matchup three weeks ago at Frank Crane. “The first game went well for us – we played a complete game and we lost in the last minute of the game,” said Graham Palmer, T-men captain. “We’re going to put in another effort like that and we should be OK.” The Timbermen, winners of two in a row, will be trying to do the same things that have led to success of late. Palmer said possession is key, so the team will seek to win the battle on loose balls and faceoffs. “We need to stick to our defensive system and transition the ball up the floor without any turnovers,” Palmer said. Ranger said after the earlier matchup this season that the close game would add to the Island rivalry. “Victoria and Nanaimo don’t get along,” he said. “It’s going to be a good series for the season and we’ll see what happens next game.” GAME ON … Tonight’s opening faceoff is at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. Tickets will be available at the door at a cost of $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and students and $5 for children. sports@nanaimobulletin.com
