Beaver replaces Dominion as bay’s new freeloader

Free squatting: Replica paddlewheeler arrives when Dominion departs Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

Peter W. Rusland

Replica paddlewheeler Beaver sits in Cowichan Bay after recent departure of derelict ship Dominion, believed hauled for scrap. Lack of federal laws allow derelict-vessel dumping in Canadian waters.

ello Beaver, goodbye Dominion. Cowichan Bay folks say the day derelict Dominion was hauled away — June 23 — faux-paddlewheeler Beaver was left in its wake. Ridding the bay of wooden, blackand-white Beaver may prove as difficult as disposing of the fuel-filled Dominion — she sat in the bay for five years before apparently being towed two weeks ago to Mexico for scrapping. It was unknown if Beaver has fuel aboard, Kato Gallacher of the Fisherman’s Wharf government facility explained. “It’s tied to a ball-mooring buoy. The day the Dominion left, it was on the hook.” Beaver was not posing a navigational hazard, she noted. That danger would spark action from federal Transport Canada agents. But without derelict-boat legislation from Ottawa — as proposed by Cowichan MP Jean Crowder — ship owners can simply dump vessels wherever they want in Canadian waters. That legally reckless approach worried bay Director Lori Iannidinardo and resident Thomas Wagner. “It’s just ‘Bring it to the Cowichan Valley; no one will bother you,’” Iannidinardo said, noting Beaver arrived in the bay about four months ago as another knot in a string of

derelicts dumped there. She reckoned American Robert Van Riter carried out his March 2012 plan to buy Dominion from Oregonian Robert Hall, then hauled Beaver to the bay, tied them together but “didn’t get the right documents to take the Beaver away.” Riter’s whereabouts were unknown at press time. “We may have another (parked) Dominiontype of vessel,” Iannidinardo said of the replica of the original 1835 paddlewheeler that sunk in 1888 off Stanley Park. “Called the Beaver, it may look like a nice, interesting old paddlewheel boat, but it’s an ill-fated replica of the real boat,” Wagner wrote the News Leader Pictorial. “The only claim to fame it ever had was as a party boat during Expo ‘86; it has been dock-hanging in Victoria ever since.” There’s far more history to 137-foot, dieselpowered Beaver: she was built by the Canadian Navy in 1966; refitted in Esquimalt in 1971; later sold to Vancouver buyers, and eventually used for charter cruises during the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. “I don’t think it has an engine either. When the tug took the Dominion away, it brought us another derelict to take its place,” Wagner said, questioning feckless federal wisdom. “How do we wind up with all the junk that floats our way? “Next time you look in the bay, remember the Dominion and how long it was a hazard here. What’s next; the Gorge Waterway Navy they have to clean up in Victoria?”

Boy dies after Sunday’s mishap in Cowichan Bay home pool

Tragic circumstances: Three-year-old succumbs to injuries after being airlifted to Vancouver hospital

A

local boy involved in Sunday’s neardrowning at a home-pool has died, police say. Despite best efforts of first responders and medical staff, the three-year-old boy, who would have turned four in two months, found unresponsive in a

backyard pool in Cowichan Bay on June 30, has died in hospital, Wednesday’s press release from the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP says. The B.C. Coroners Service has been notified of the child’s death, and now has conduct of the investigation. RCMP will continue assisting the Coroners Service with its probe into the death of the Cowichan Bay lad, whose name

hasn’t been released. “Police investigators have not found any evidence to suggest criminal involvement in this death,” the release says. Details will be released by the Coroners Service as available. The accident happened at around 10:30 a.m. when emergency services were called to a Cowichan Bay home where the boy was found unresponsive in a pool, Sgt. Chris Swain’s release

said. The parents were home at that time. The child, in critical condition with cardiac arrest, was flown — via helicopter that landed on Bench school’s playing field — to Vancouver Children’s Hospital. Police and first responders remind everyone to take extra caution around water this summer to avoid a repeat of Sunday’s tragedy.

Feds visit Cowichan Tribes’ trash-burn site during investigation

Up FrONT

Last week’s trash burn on Cowichan Tribes’ land near Duncan is under federal investigation. “We are working with Cowichan Tribes to identify solutions, and a recommended course of action in respect to what may now be a contaminated site,” says Thursday’s email to the News Leader Pictorial from Hazel Desharnais of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development

Canada. The feds visited the burn site — along Qwulshemut Road, off Indian Road — and met with the Cowichan First Nation this week, she notes. However, federal efforts “to engage the operator” of that site — registered to Tribes, and sitting outside local-government jurisdiction — have been unsuccessful to date, Desharnais

adds. The operator — called “an individual” by Chief Harvey Alphonse — was issued a cease-anddesist order by the federal government in February regarding storage of garbage on the site. That’s where construction debris, tires, woodwaste, and other unknown junk was torched between June 25 and 28. Toxic smoke choked the

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A3 Duncan area before the mountainous garbage fire was ordered snuffed by chief and council. Aboriginal Affairs enforces Indian Reserve Waste Disposal Regulations. Those convicted of violating those regulations can face a fine not exceeding $100, jail for a term not exceeding three months, or both.

New chapter for daycare ladies Trading places: Thorne and McNeely awarded positions at Ecole Mount Prevost Ashley Degraaf

F

olks with children using the before and after school care program at Ecole Duncan Elementary are breathing a sigh of relief. That follows news Duncan El’s much-loved daycare providers, Brianna Thorne and Heather McNeely, have been awarded positions at Ecole Mount Prevost school come September. “They now have a new chapter in their lives and are very happy to be starting their own daycare within the school, which will also have a French preschool component during the day,” said Duncan

FREE DRAW!

El PAC president Adam Clutchey in an email to the News Leader Pictorial. “We as a PAC are very happy to have the girls back with us. It has been a long stressful process not knowing who would be looking after our kids next year. That stress was taken off our shoulders (June 28) after the announcement. Brianna and Heather are two great ladies who were all smiles when the news broke at the school.” Solutions had been pending for some of the dozens of families left without childcare in the wake of the recent reorganization of the Cowichan Valley School District. Superintendent of schools, Joe Rhodes, and acting director for el-

ementary education, Sheryl Koers, had been in charge of the daycare shuffle. They had ensured in a previous article Mt. Prevost school has enough room for the former Duncan El daycare program but were waiting on approval from licensing before a tendering process took place. Other childcare programs are expected to be available at Bonner and Discovery. A fourth school wasn’t so lucky. Koers confirmed the pre-school and before- and after-school program run by Mark Sorenson for seven years at Drinkwater Elementary has been axed since that school is now “jam-packed” and the space was needed for an influx of students next year.

wenty per cent of Echo Heights forest could be developed for housing, pending more input to council, North Cowichan’s mayor says. Jon Lefebure explained if council eventually passes the proposed 20% option — after a staff report, plus committee and public advice — the rest of Chemainus’ 54-acre site would be saved as parkland. He and four councillors approved staff’s option among three last Wednesday, sparking study and discussion about the 20% option. Councillors Al Siebring and John Koury voted against that motion. “The motion council passed was based on a staff report recommending a balanced option — 20-, 30- or 40% be developed, and the remainder left as parkland,” said Lefebure. Council also backed staff’s motion to rescind its earlier, controversial plan to develop 40% of Echo Heights. That plan had second reading but remained in limbo for about two years. Lefebure knows some Chemaniacs — including himself — want all of taxpayer-owned Echo Heights set aside. “I’d be pleased to see the whole area preserved, but I respect the other opinions that envision some part of it being developed.” The 20% would fill an area cleared by council in the ‘90s for development “but lot prices were low, so that didn’t happen, and scrub took over.” “Now we’re looking to see what the 20% option looks like on the ground, how much forest will be affected, and how close it comes to the (80%) ecological area. “There’s not just one option for Echo Heights, as evidenced by (June 19) voting around the table. The most important thing we can do is resolve this issue once and for all,’’ he said. “Some people have suffered a great deal of anxiety over Echo Heights.”

Council’s worries about funds for various projects could be eased by roughly $3 million from selling Heights’ lots. “Sale of lots does provide capital for some of the ambitious plans to improve our community.” Heights housing would basically complement the neighbourhood’s singe-family residences. But earlier Heights discussions included green-housing, showcasing innovations such as solar and geo-thermal heating, and more. Lefebure agreed eco-thinking would twin council’s climate-action plan. “That type of (design) discussion will happen at the committee level, and in the community exercise. “The big decision is if there should be any development. If development happens, we should do the best we can with it.” Staff’s Heights report, due by fall, will also go to Chemainus’ advisory committee, the community planning advisory committee, and council’s climate-change action committee for feedback. After public consultation, a staff recommendation would return to council. “If all goes smoothly, by early 2014 council could consider a new set of bylaws,” Lefebure said.

owichan Valley Regional bylaw head honcho Brian Duncan’s not taking recent “gifts” to Chemainus River Park lightly. Cleanup crews were expected to be out in full force after several messes of bottles, cans and tents, even pallets left after recent shin-

digs at the provincial park. While sorting trash and recyclables, the regional manager for inspections and enforcement’s crew will be checking for any forms of identification left behind. They’re hoping to slap fines on whoever’s responsible. CVRD fines range from $500 to $1,000. They’re also ramping up RCMP and bylaw enforcement checks at the park located off Hillcrest Road.

Leave the barbecue for valley culture

T

hirty-nine Days Of July is likely Canada’s longest summer festival. The lslands Folk Festival is among our nation’s most beloved folkfests. And SunFest — headlined by country superstar Alan Jackson this year — has eclipsed the Merritt Mountain Music Festival. Rock of the Woods has also grabbed regular attendance. Drop your weed-eater and your barbecue tongs and buy your tickets now. It doesn’t get any better than this. But there’s much more. Those events are simply some of this summer’s biggest Warm Land attractions. Arts addicts are planning stops for this weekend’s Visions Studio Tour, for instance. And the Shawnigan Players are busy rehearsing August’s outdoor staging of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Get the picture? Something for all ages, budgets and Many amaztastes in a region boasting one of Canada’s highest concentrations of ing artistic artists. attractions on Still, some Cowichanians let everyone else have all the fun, shrugging “I tap missed that”, or “I was gonna go, but ...”, or “Next year, for sure.” Why wait until then? There’s a party in progress now, or there soon will be. Broke? Well, downtown’s 39 Days is free — and money well spent by local merchants and governments. Visions is gas money. Most festivals offer daily rates, plus other services such as shuttles. Amazingly, we still hear some folks whine “There’s nothing to do in drunken Duncan.” Where have they been? That inane nickname was applied decades ago; since diluted mostly by volunteer-driven arts-andculture events. It was replaced by what 39 Days’ impresario Longevity John Falkner calls “A rather fun place to be.” His catchy motto could apply to Cowichan year-round. Act now — or blame yourself later.

We say:

Communities band together to celebrate the season and individual families embark on camping holidays. The sun only lasts so long and there is so much to see and do in around the valley to make the season memorable.

Clark ramming in a summer session unreasonable

all it the Beach Blanket Budget. Despite having to campaign once again to win a seat in a byelection, Premier Christy Clark has ordered the legislature to sit without her through most of July to pass the budget that was tabled before the election. This rare summer session ensures a couple of things. First, there will be less time for real financial results to contradict the rosy predictions made by Finance Minister Mike de Jong in February. Second, it ensures there will be minimum public attention paid to the deliberations, as people focus on their summer vacations and put the business of running the province aside again. B.C. Liberal house leader Mike de Jong insists there has been no decision made on whether the legislature will sit again in the fall. The standard schedule, put in place under former premier Gordon Campbell, calls for MLAs to assemble

in October and November, to consider legislation, after a spring devoted to the budget and ministry spending. This was a serious reform that went along with four-year scheduled elections. But Campbell soon abandoned this noble approach, with fall sessions dwindling to a few days to deal with urgent issues or disappearing altogether. I expected Clark to reverse that after she led the party to victory in May and consigned the Campbell era to the history books. Open, accountable government and all that. So why the summer session? I’m inclined to agree with NDP house leader John Horgan, who meets privately with de Jong, in his role of government house leader, to thrash out schedules. Here’s Horgan’s message to Clark and her government as he emerged from the latest meeting: “You ran on a platform that you claimed you were ready to implement. And what we’re getting instead is, ‘Let’s jam ’em in here while the media’s on holidays, while people are at the beach thinking about other things. We’ll pass

our bogus budget and then we’ll see you in February.’” Is the budget accurate, or “bogus,” or somewhere in between? They’re always projections, so that can’t be determined until next year. But the proposal to keep the increase in overall spending to less than 2%, with nearly all the increase going to health and education, is difficult to accept. During his time, Campbell topped the Fraser Institute’s ranking of most fiscally responsible premiers, limiting spending growth to 4.4 %. During those same years, average provincial economic growth was only 4.1 %, meaning that under the supposedly tight-fisted, tax-cutting Campbell, government continued to grow to more than 20 % of gross domestic product. Clark has indicated several times since her surprise election win that she intends to make government smaller. That’s the difference between her “core review” of government programs and the one conducted by Campbell in the painful first years of his mandate. This is why I mentioned last week that one

There are so many downsides to summer mainly because of stupidity. Don’t be in a hurry to get somewhere on the roads because it’s not going to happen. Be careful at all swimming sites, especially diving into the water off a bank or cliff. And don’t forget the sunscreen. But, most of all, think before you act. So many tragedies can be averted with a little common sense.

BC VIEWS

of the more significant instructions given to Clark’s cabinet ministers was to examine turning the Liquor Distribution Branch into a separate corporation with its own board of directors. That in itself may slightly increases the size of government. But it could be a preliminary step to selling the whole thing off and reducing the government’s role to taxing and regulating booze sales. You can imagine how that would go over with the NDP, with former liquor store union boss George Heyman among the loudest opposition MLAs. This is the kind of change that should be debated in public, not by press release. Tom Fletcher is the legislative reporter for Black Press. Reach him at tfletcher@blackpress.ca.

YOUR TURN

What worries you about last week’s trash-burn on Tribes’ land? “They need a different way to dispose of their garbage. My co-workers and I were coughing really bad. It’s their land, but they shouldn’t be allowed to burn without public consent.”

“I’m not happy about it because you don’t know what they’re burning.”

Burning ban might doom carbon busters

Let’s keep it simple if we have to change the name

Dear editor Re: North Cowichan change of legal name Although I agree that the legal name of “The Corporation of the District of North Cowichan” is unwieldy, the proposed change to “District Municipality of North Cowichan” is awkward. None of the other 50 district municipalities in B.C. have the word “municipality” in their legal names, and almost all use “Village of,” “Town of,” “City of,” or “District of.” Changing to the simpler “District of North Cowichan” would align our name with the style used by the rest of the province. If we are to go through the expense of a change, it would help to avoid future changes by following the province-wide style. Harley Acheson

arbon Busting is an unusual phrase and is being misused. This leads to a complete misunderstanding of the real problem. That problem is the ongoing creation of carbon dioxide. No living, air-breathing animal can ‘bust carbon’ but can only be a CO2 contributer.

An Argument for Consolidating Investment Assets

Advertorial

Throughout our lives, most Canadians invest diligently to accumulate assets for retirement. Every year, we contribute to pensions, top up RSPs and invest in other accounts to ensure a comfortable future. Unfortunately, when retirement does emerge, many of us find that we have lost track of our portfolios and that they are spread across divergent strategies at multiple firms. There is an opportunity to dramatically increase the efficiency of your investment portfolio. This article discusses the six key benefits of consolidating your investment assets with one qualified, professional wealth management firm. 1) Access to More Investment Options: The reality of the wealth management industry is that the more capital one has to invest, the more options they tend to have. By consolidating accounts from multiple institutions to a central wealth management model, an investor often gains access to individual securities, derivatives, wrap programs, hedge funds and a list of other investment options that were previously unavailable.

2) Co-ordination of Experts: As full service advisors usually service fewer clients with larger accounts, they are able to spend more time providing advice and consulting with your accountant, lawyer and other prudent experts. 3) Consolidated Reporting: Every year at tax time, investors are quickly reminded of the complexities related to the monitoring and reporting of investment income, tax slips, and registered plan contributions. By consolidating assets with a single advisor, an investor can rely on one set of statements, one set of tax slips, and a single source of advice on plan contribution limits. 4) Access to Senior Level Advisors: By consolidating assets, the investor may gain access to a firm’s senior wealth management staff. These individuals should be licensed to trade individual securities, will have experience in both bull and bear markets, and are focused solely on investments and financial planning. Most firms start to offer full service investment advisors once a family has accumulated investment assets in the two to three hundred thousand dollar range. 5) Cost Efficiencies: The way we

pay for investment advice comes in many different forms. Often the most costly structure is multiple investments across different firms. Wealth management firms can offer lower fees to clients with larger investment accounts. Consolidating accounts can sometimes be justified on the cost savings alone. 6) Holistic Advice: Having a single advisor adds a number of efficiencies to the investment relationship. It allows the advisor to monitor and provide advice with the total picture in mind. This eliminates redundant advice, conflicting strategies, and ineffective mandates. It also allows the advisor to properly structure accounts, by asset type, for tax optimization. In conclusion, many investors rely on the services of multiple institutions for investment advice based on the lack of a formal investment plan and the premise that “it is not wise to hold all of one’s eggs in one basket.” Unfortunately by spreading assets out amongst a number of firms and advisors, there are a number of potential inefficiencies that may. You should always diversify your assets, but there

Community Kitchens connects Into the park: Duncan’s first cob oven underway at Centennial Park as group creates outdoor cooking project

owichan Community Kitchens has taken food growing to the next level. With the help of a large group of community partners, Community Kitchens is building Duncan’s first outdoor cob oven at Centennial Park. “We want to get back to preparing our own food from garden to table,” said Kitchen’s Gina Talbot. “It will naturally draw people together to share food with their neighbours and is a natural fit in an active family park and community garden space. “The concept of an outdoor cooking space provides Community Kitchens participants a way of connecting with the community and being in a park. Food and the preparation of food helps bring people together.” The project just recently took shape after three years of envisioning. “Not only does this provide the city the ability to create a unique experience and environment for community gatherings, it gives us the opportunity to observe a cleaner burning technology from which future policies and permits allowing outdoor ovens on private properties would be developed,” said Duncan CAO Peter de Verteuil. A cob oven is typically built using clay, sand, straw, fire bricks and used for baking pizzas, pies, breads, soups, and pastries, or anything else you’d normally make in a conventional oven. And it’s not only cool in its eco-and-community gathering senses. It will be a public art piece as well. Joining in the creativity are cob artists and natural builders Pat Amos and Sarah Way. Partners in the project include the City of Duncan, B.C. Arts Council and Peninsula Co-op, as well as local partners, Cowichan Tribes and the Hiiye’Yu Lelum (House of Friendship). A community celebration “The First Bake” is set for Sept. 14.

esponse to the 2009 Cowichan flood — the dike alongside Beverly Street — is a reminder of historic flooding that’s created misery, havoc and head-scratching in our community during the past century or so. In July 1967, municipal leaders were pondering flood danger after the CPR pointed out a sudden winter rising of the Cowichan River could sweep south to join the Koksilah River west of the railway line near Somenos Indian (sic) Village. The damage, surmised the CPR, could mean the end of the present channel between the Black Bridge and Cowichan Bay. “This...is evidence enough that we are recognized as vulnerable to a river out of control. It is a sobering thought,” mused the Leader. Possible solutions raised by engineers: the possibility of a Nitinat channel to the West Coast — ruled out because of cost; deepening of the river at the Cowichan Lake outlet to prevent a recurrence of the previous year’s flooding; and strengthening the banks of Somenos Creek, a major Cowichan tributary. As two-thirds of the land between Duncan and the sea was Indian land, a separate authority should be set up for the express purpose of protecting potential valuable Indian agricultural land, municipal leaders said.

Allison Brown bringing double the folk to downtown Duncan is a brave new world for “Uncle” Dan Henshaw. The mandolin accompanist has joined road warrior roots songstress Allison Brown on a 29-day train tour of western Canada. The Duncan Summer Festival’s 39 Days of July will be counted among their stops. Windsor’s Brown is playing two shows — a free outdoor concert at Charles Hoey Park the afternoon

of July 11, and an intimate indoor show at the Duncan Garage Showroom later that night. “(It’s) my fourth trip to Canada’s west,” Brown said in an email. “I’ll be bringing along a new collection of recordings on my Secret Identity E” fresh from the House Of Miracles studio in Cambridge, Ontario.” Dimes are thin for this pair of pennies traversing the continent, fans and friends can support their

journey by supporting their “Wreck-less on Vancouver Island” fund toward a 13-day rental of a long-loved ‘rent-a-wreck’ from Nanaimo’s colourful and reliable Practi-car as they travel across the entire island, the pair’s promo material states. The Duncan Garage Showroom show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 advance, $12 at the door. More infor at duncangarageshowroom.ca.

ehind every successful rock queen is a good husband. In Pat Benatar’s case, that spouse is guitarist, songwriter and producer Neil (Spyder) Giraldo. The couple and their band play the Cowichan Theatre July 9, promising to unpack tons of familiar hits spanning Hit Me With Your Best Shot, I Need A Lover, Heartbreaker, Fire And Ice, and Shadows of the Night. Those numbers helped earn Benatar four Grammy awards, landing her among the most popular female vocalists in all of ‘80s rock. Guitar-lifer Giraldo was there at each step, helping the woman he told the News Leader Pictorial was his saviour. “If not for Pat, I’d be dead,” the energetic guy said recently from Modesto, California. “She saved my life in 1979, in all ways. Pat’s very focused, sweet and kind. She changed everything in my wacky world. I’m a tortured artist and I’m all over the place; I’m constantly writing — my mind never stops, but Pat turns my vision into reality.” That vision is seen by fans during the couple’s 150-some-show-a-year jaunt across North America and Europe. Deep personal philosophies (the Taoist I Ching also offers guidance), plus family and friends keep Giraldo grounded despite the hype, and road grind. “In this business, most people are so great and sweet, and everybody kinda loves everyone.” Still, Giraldo’s keenly aware the industry’s dog-eat-dog stigma isn’t buried very far away. “You still have that, but if you’re a nice guy and sincere, people respond to what you really are.” That brand of candor also yields Giraldo’s modesty while his wife’s often in the spotlight. To Cleveland-native Giraldo, 57, it’s about reporting reality for the sake of truth, not ego. “The only awkward thing is that the truth

was never told,” he said of some media to whom he’s just background to Benatar. “When you’re trying to market something, and they can’t tell the truth, that was the part that’s difficult — but we found a way to do it.” It’s called solid teamwork, he explained, quoting a former U.S. president. “Ronald Regan said, ‘You’ll be surprised to see what you get done if you don’t worry about who gets the credit.’” Still, Giraldo said he was at the controls in the studio. “I was in charge, like a dictator, and it worked.” So well, the guitar adept — who first grabbed an axe at age six — gained respect from many of his rock heroes. He remembered meeting Led Zepplin’s Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant after a Benatar show one night in London. Many others made his acquaintance over the years, humbling Giraldo who was influenced by Chuck Berry, and Brits Jeff Beck, The Kinks, and The Who. “The big early one for me was The Yardbirds,” he said, noting he hasn’t yet met member Eric Clapton. “For me, it was about song structure and chords, rather than the notes. It was more about attacking the instrument.” Those battles saw Giraldo amass about 250 guitars, some through endorsements. He saluted guitar icon Rick Derringer with whom he toured, and recorded on Derringer’s 1979 album Guitars And Women. About then Giraldo, who also plays bass and piano, moved to New York City where Catch A Rising Star producers suggested he join a talented young singer named Benatar. His playing and her pipes caught fire. Thirty-odd years later, the couple has two grown daughters, homes in Hawaii and California — plus Grammies in storage. “At home, we don’t want to see a bunch of records on the wall. We’d rather see great

ELLIOTT, Dagmar, (Woody), Glennis January 6, 1924 – June 30, 2013 Dagmar “Woody� Elliott passed away peacefully at Cairnsmore Place on June 30, 2013. She was predeceased just 6 months ago by Allen, her husband of 68 years. Dagmar will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her children Terry (Norma), Jo Ann (Larry), and Jim; by her grandchildren Derek (Katja), Deanna, Chris and Jeannie; and great-grandchild Kaz. Dagmar was born in Norquay, Saskatchewan to Alfred and Myrtle Belle Mathison, the youngest of eight children. She met Al while serving in the Canadian Army at Camp Shilo, Manitoba in 1943. It was there that she gained her unusual nickname – when Dagmar became Dagwood (a popular comic strip character) and then Woody. She enjoyed doing crafts of all types, but especially knitting. She made hundreds of items for local charities and could rarely been seen without a project on the go. She was also an avid bridge player who had a passion for the game and enjoyed teaching others how to play. Woody will be forever remembered as a kind and loving lady by all who knew her. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Cairnsmore Place who provided her with a safe, comfortable home during her final months. Grateful thanks also to Dr. Ann Thompson for her kind care of our mother. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation, designated for Cairnsmore Place.

Outdoor league ends in playoffs

Athlete’s feats: Achurch, Croswell and Minckler combination clicks for Elite Cup Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

pirited competition from here, there and everywhere: • Cowichan Outdoor Volleyball League playoffs Wednesday completed another great season, even though players had to endure a few rainouts. Winners were as follows: Rec Div. — Super Smash Bro. Speed Bumps; Intermediate-Recreational Div. — The Flying Piggies 1; Intermediate Div. — Young & Old; Intermediate-Competitive Div. — Unusual Suspects; Competitive Div. — Tips Up; El-Compo Div. — Jones Soda (Nic Jones, Emily Jones, Leigh Borrett, Tessa Michaels). The Elite Cup and Golden Spike Award went to Passot, consisting of Darin Achurch, Joeleen Achurch, Justin Croswell, Marissa Croswell and Mike Minckler. • Junior athletes kind of fell off the radar during the island high school track and field championships. It’s a bit of a quirky system where seniors and bantams advance to the provincials, but juniors don’t. Among the juniors who did extremely well was Kain Melchior. The Grade 10 Cowichan Secondary School student won his long jump with a leap of 6.04 metres, high jump at 1.75m and the 100 metres in 11.92 seconds. • Chemainus Secondary’s Zach Diewert is having a great season in the B.C. Premier Baseball League with the Nanaimo Pirates. His batting average is up to .326, with an on-base percentage of .429. Diewert is heading with his team to Centralia, Washington for a tournament next.

Cricket losses mount

Crazy Eights hit the No. 1 spot

Over and out: Cowichan misses its chances to snuff out Alcos A early Don Bodger

Spartans tournament: Slo-pitch and orthodox games get hot on Canada Day

News Leader Pictorial

C

owichan fell to .500 at 5-5 after its third straight loss Sunday in the Victoria and District Cricket Association. Cowichan was beaten by 68 runs by Alcos A at Victoria’s Windsor Park. Alcos A batted first and compiled 214 all out in 45 overs. Hassaan Rahim took three wickets for 20 wickets and Clayton Bodkyn two for 51 to lead the Cowichan bowlers. Cowichan then went 146 all out in 41 overs. Mits Nakagawa (33), Stuart Munger (21) and Lucien Nel (20) were the leading Cowichan batsmen. The greenness of the field surface hid the very soft ground underneath, noted Cowichan’s Dave Norrish. The game was played in the bright sunshine, with very little breeze until later in the day. Norrish pointed out Cowichan had Alcos rattled at 24 for four. “We could hardly have asked for a better start as Hassaan was unplayable and Mits dangerous enough and hard to score from at the other end, but once they buckled down with Rajpal (Singh Chauhan) hardly looking to score at all and the heat beginning to tell on us in the field, we let it slip a little,’’ noted Norrish. A great throw from the outfield removed Chauhan and Cowichan hoped to finish off Alcos quickly at 72 for five. But Alcos benefited from a couple of missed catches to advance the score to 133 for five at the second break. Alcos finishing with 214 was “about 60 or 70 more than we should have allowed,’’ according to Norrish. Cowichan dug itself too deep of a hole at 49 for four at the halfway mark and went all out despite a valiant effort from the No. 7, 8 and 10 men in the order. “A disappointing day to be certain, although again we should take many positives from our bowling efforts,’’ summed up Norrish. “If we can make better use of the chances afforded us in the field and perhaps start to test our own luck a little earlier when batting, we should find ourselves on the winning side of the ledger more often than not in the future.’’ Cowichan returns to Windsor Park Saturday to face Alcos B.

anada Day weekend was celebrated in the sweltering heat by orthodox and slo-pitch ball teams competing in the Spartans’ fourth-annual tournament at the Cowichan Sportsplex. Clint Bailey’s host Crazy Eights team took on Team Works of Victoria in the A Division slo-pitch final and won. The tournament holds special meaning for Bailey. “It’s a memorial for his brother who passed away,’’ said Dustin Mayo of the Lake Cowichan 1/2 Cutz. The 1/2 Cutz and Sooke Ninja Boots didn’t play their B slo-pitch final. The Sooke team was too banged up and players too exhausted from playing in the heat so it was decided to split the title. On the orthodox side, Talent from Vancouver won the championship in a tight battle. Local teams Mitts, Cheers and Texas Leaguers rounded out the top four. Mixed Nuts, a mixture of players from various teams, won the B orthodox events. Winners of memorial awards were as follows: Tyler Read (John McCulloch Trophy, MVP male slo-pitch); Gill Lougheed (Jaedyn Amann Trophy, MVP female slo-pitch); Cari Reid (Tailyn McGill Trophy, MVP female orthodox); and Ryan Flynn (Bailey Bertrand Trophy, MVP male orthodox). Meanwhile, Ralph Dill is gearing up for the 25th anniversary and the last Ron Dill Memorial tournament on the B.C. Day long weekend, Aug. 2 to 5. Ralph Dill currently has 52 teams entered. Teams interested in participating can leave a message for Dill at 250-748-9841.

Fencers foil the competition

Salle La Fleche fencers are always up for the task. That was especially true in last weekend’s provincial championships at the Richmond Oval. The valley competitors did very well, with Aden Nettleton and Andrew Rigg, far left, taking silver and bronze medals, respectively, in the Y12 sabre fencing event. Weibin Liang, near left, was the bronze medal winner in the Junior (Under 21) foil event.

Vimy maintains an oldtime family atmosphere Show must go on: Ardent volunteers like Gord Williams make club tick

imy Western Riding Club shows are comforting. The club’s Gibbins Road site hasn’t changed a great deal over the years and a pioneering spirit is reflected in an atmosphere where families can ride together and enjoy the performance and games classes on the last Sunday of each month. Gord Williams, the current club president who’s done the stint more than a few times during his 40+ year tenure with the club, is glad to play a part in an incredible success story that has stood the test of time against all odds. “The way I look at it, you’ve got to give back,’’ he said. Williams’ daughters Leona and Laura were a mere five and three years old, respectively, when they started riding club events. They’re in their 40s now and Williams still gives willingly of his time, ensuring the current adult members and up-and-coming young riders can enjoy the same perks his kids did. “Horse business is like a lot of things,’’ said Williams. “They do really well and a couple of years they go backwards.’’ It does require a team effort to keep the club going. “It’s not just the riders you need,’’ Williams said. “You need the people that put it on.’’ The club has made modest improvements to the grounds and facilities and one of those was the addition of a new trail ring just in time for the latest show. “It just got finished the Saturday before this show on the Sunday,’’ said Williams. The club’s own license with North Cowichan, rather than piggybacking with the Vimy Hall, has provided some opportunities for a little expansion. “We have increased the parking area in the field a little bit,’’ said Williams. Club membership remains in the 90s and has been bolstered by residents of Cedar, Nanaimo and Victoria in addition to the local riders. “You don’t have to be a member to ride in the club,’’ said Williams. “If you are a member, it’s a cheaper rate to ride in the club.’’ There’s always been enough young riders to bolster the club and generate enthusiasm. “My mom used to ride in Vimy when she was little and then I guess she stopped riding in it,’’ said Tiara Walker. “We all joined as a big family.’’ The next club show is on July 28. “They can just show up and enter on that morning,’’ said Williams.

Midget Thunder: Team digging deep after earning bronze medal in Calgary

acific Homes Cowichan Thunder evened its best-of-three island Midget A lacrosse semifinal playoff series with an 8-3 win at Saanich Wednesday. The Thunder opened a 5-1 lead after the first period and bumped it up to 8-2 after two. Saanich won the series opener 6-3. “We were leading 3-0 after the first period and the wheels fell off,’’ noted Cowichan coach Lorne Winship.

Saanich took a 4-3 lead in the third and then added a pair of empty-netters. The deciding game in the series is tonight (Friday) at 8 p.m. at Kerry Park Arena. In between the first two playoff games, the Thunder hit the road and won the bronze medal with four wins and one loss during the 37th-annual Canada Day lacrosse tournament in Calgary. Cowichan finished with 15.5 of a possible 20 points in the round robin for third place, set-

Tyson Black (2), Derek Hayes, Mathieu Jung, Chris Branting, Braylon Lumb, Martin and Winship scored goals.

The same afternoon, the Thunder beat Okotoks 11-8. Cowichan outscored the opposition 5-3 in the third period to take the see-saw battle. Next up was the Calgary Hornets and the Thunder prevailed again 9-7. The last round robin game was against Rockyview Rage. The Thunder came out of the gate strong to win each period 3-0, 2-1 and 4-2 for a 9-3 advantage overall, worth five points. Players receiving MVP recognition were: Black, goalkeeper Pollo Claxton, Tyler Glanfield and Lumb. All the boys played well in the tournament with just 13 runners and a goalie.

Everyone loves a parade: Ten Carlson students representing Cowichan in Disneyland parade and on stage Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” Those words of Walt E. Disney’s couldn’t be more fitting for a group of Cowichan dance students. On July 9, 10 girls between the ages 12 and 16 from Carlson’s School of Dance are jetting to Disneyland to represent the valley in the California theme park’s

parades and on stage, Carlson’s Ricki-Lee Allison said. “About a year and a half ago, we started thinking we’d like to go on a trip and we did some research into it and Disneyland came up,” explained Allison on the popular park’s programs. The group’s been fundraising and planning the trip for more than a year. “They are all very excited and working hard to prepare the parade choreography,” Allison said in a message to the News Leader

Pictorial. The girls will take part in three hours of workshops with Disney staffers as well as a question-andanswer session. Before the big parade, there will be a photo shoot and rehearsal earlier in the day. They’ve also been invited to perform at California Adventure Land, Disney’s second park, on Sunday. And in the meantime, the girls have also been provided discounted prices to access the park’s activities.

Capsule Comments

D

rug resistance is one of the most serious problems developing in healthcare now and into the future. Much of this is due to the overuse of antibiotic drugs in some countries where people expect a pill for every ill they see the doctor about. Often this isn’t needed. Antibiotics are to be used only for true infections. Don’t feel bad if you demand a smoke-free hotel room when you travel. The idea of third hand smoke is a real one. The term was coined a few years ago and refers to the residue that smoking leaves on carpets, sofas, walls and clothing. It doesn’t go away easily. The danger is much smaller than secondhand smoke but the exposures are longer.

How can you discourage mosquitoes from biting? Avoid fragrant soaps and body lotions; avoid bright, floral colours and stick to the dull ones; cover as much of your body as comfortably possible...less area to bite; get rid of body sweat...mosquitoes like that. Signing up to be an organ-donor makes good business sense for saving healthcare dollars. For example, it costs over $70,000 per year to maintain one person on kidney dialysis. The initial cost of a kidney transplant is nearly $100,000 then follow-up treatment and medication costs under $22,500 yearly. In the long run, organ transplant saves a lot of money. Have you signed up to be a donor?

News Leader Pictorial

A

weekly compilation of facts, figures, and fascinating Cowichan culture: • Saturday’s Bluegrass4Bolivia happens at Cobble Hill Hall to help send 14 youths from New Life Baptist Church to Bolivia to improve housing and living conditions, and run day camps for kids. The 7 to 9 p.m. dance features the Stowaways’ String Band. Tickets are $12. A recent charity golf event at Duncan Meadows raised about $2,000 thanks to sponsors Investors Group, Discovery Honda, Generation Properties, and Belfor Properties Restoration, said spokesman Dr. Graham Brockley. The Samaritan trip has seen numerous bottle drives, garage sales, and yard work toward raising some $60,000 for sending Cowichan kids to help the struggling village during two weeks this month. • Chris Sherlock has returned to Cowichan. The songwriting musician tells me he’s penning a trilogy book about famed Nootka chief Maquina. • Valley soul crooner Eugene Smith

ARTSBEAT turned 69 May 30. He’s in Holland this summer chasing gigs and European distribution deals. • Pete’s Flicks Picks: Wrecked: Finally saw Adrien Brody’s offbeat movie shot partly in Cowichan and downtown Duncan several years ago. Great wilderness-survival drama, but could bore folks looking for action. Rating: 7 cougars out of 10. The Dust Bowl: Director Ken Burns’ four-hour, penetrating documentary about the ecological disaster that was the Dirty ‘30s gives a glimpse of what current climate change is doing, and the horror that awaits us — if the ‘30s were a harbinger. Rating: 10 Depressions out of 10.
