Fire crews battle hay blaze off Somenos Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial


Andrew Leong

Captain Malcolm Vale of North Cowichan’s South End fire department responds to a Tuesday morning blaze at Evans Farm on 6293 Somenos Road.

orth Cowichan South End fire fighters responded to a grass fire at the Evans farm on Somenos Road shortly before 11 a.m. on Tuesday morning. Crews battled the quick-spreading grass fire for about an hour before it was safe to head back to the station. Witness reports said the fire originated from a hay bale on a detached trailer on the property. The cause was unknown at press time. While firefighters worked on snuffing the blaze, they blocked off both adjacent Glacier Street and Hawkes Boulevard and had RCMP controlling traffic.

Big-money Kerry Park rec-centre upgrade pushed to the backburner Ashley Degraaf

he Kerry Park Commission has pulled back on plans to spend up to $14.4 million to upgrade the recreation centre. Instead, it is recommending the Cowichan Valley Regional District move forward with only necessary improvements using existing reserves and operating budgets. “The commission feels this is the best approach to fund Kerry Park retrofits in the current economic climate,” South Cowichan Recreation manager Kim Liddle stated in a press release issued Friday. “The proposed improvements are scaled Home Of The

back from the upgrades viewed by the community during a community consultation in spring 2013.” More detailed planning and analysis is required but the renovation project will likely include replacement of the arena slab and rink boards, electrical and water system improvements and mechanical, plumbing and refrigeration system upgrades. “This does not preclude us from being able to move forward with an expanded community centre at some point in the future,” said commission chairman Mike Croft.

“However, the commission feels at this time the priority is to move ahead with the critical facility upgrades. Additional facility needs could be considered when other funds become available.” Last month, the commission voted to recommend a November referendum on a $14.4 million upgrade —the most expensive option on the table. But that recommendation was pulled off the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s agenda to see if there were ways to reduce that cost. “We would have loved to do all of it at

once, but we decided it wasn’t the way to go,” Shawnigan Lake director Bruce Fraser said Monday. “The ultimate reason is the sensitivity of the local taxpayer.” The commission should have about $3 million to work with on critical upgrades, he noted, and will keep its collective eyes peeled for government grants for more improvements in the future. “The consultation process gave the commission valuable insight into what the community would like to see in the future at Kerry Park,” Liddle said. “In weighing what the community said, the commission concluded repairs to the facility are what is affordable for South Cowichan residents at this time.”

Man wanted in Salt Spring attack on two women

A male who allegedly stabbed two women Saturday on Salt Spring Island is wanted by police. RCMP say the alleged attack happened July 6 at around 6 p.m. before Salt Spring officers answered an altercation involving a man and two women at a Howell Lane home. Cops found two women had been allegedly stabbed repeatedly by a 24-year-old Salt Spring

Island man. The women were taken to hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, and later released, Salt Spring Mounties said Sunday. The suspect also sustained undetermined injuries in the fracas. He was known to the victims, and remains at large. The suspect is Caucasian, five-foot seven with a tall, slim build, and short, black hair. He was last

seen wearing red shorts and a blue, sleeveless top with grey trim. Multiple RCMP resources from Salt Spring and the Island District have an active dragnet for this man. Citizens are asked to report any possible sightings of the suspect to 911 immediately. Or call the Salt Spring Island RCMP at 250-537-5555.

Chopper plucks fallen hiker off Mount Baldy

In stable condition: Man airlifted after falling into remote crevasse Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial


Kim Hoffmann

Kim Hoffmann of Burnaby was visiting family in Shawnigan Lake Monday when a hurt hiker was rescued by helicopter on Mount Baldy. She snapped this photo from her mom’s boat on Shawnigan Lake.

visiting hiker found himself on a slippery slope Monday, quite literally. Cowichan Search and Rescue members were called at 2 p.m. to rescue a climber who’d fallen approximately 20 feet into a deep crevasse at Mount Baldy in Shawnigan Lake. Due to lower-body injuries and challenging terrain, the hiker was transported by helicopter off the mountain. He was then transferred to Victoria General Hospital in stable condition. “It was very difficult terrain and it was very hot out there,” explained Cowichan SAR vice president Mitch Wright, noting the fellow and his group ventured off the beaten path. “He was about halfway up Baldy Mountain on the rock bluffs facing Shawnigan. It was very steep and lots of loose rock.” Wright and fellow rope team members, as well as a B.C. Ambulance attendant, were able to reach the hurt hiker and stabilize him. Because of the terrain and his injuries, the rescue team’s plan A was transportation by helicopter. “Our manager Chris made the call very early on to get a helicopter in,” explained Wright. “Our big thing is to get him and get him out,” said Cowichan SAR manager Christopher Comars, who wasn’t able to release any particulars about the hiker, only that he was part of a visiting group he believed was from Victoria. Wright and crew hooked the hiker on the 442 Squadron Cormorant chopper based out of CFB Comox at about 7:30 p.m. that evening. “The GSAR members used silver, thermal emergency blankets to reflect the sun, enabling us to see them through the trees as we got on

scene,” said pilot Capt. Luc Coates. “The embankment they were on was very steep and we worked together as a crew to find a safe place to lower our Search and Rescue technicians.” The two SAR techs were hoisted almost 80 feet to the ground where they met first responders. “B.C. Ambulance and Cowichan SAR had already got the man ready to go, so it was a quick matter of putting him into the litter and hoisting him into the helicopter,” explained MCpl. Justin Cervantes. Both Wright and Comars gave kudos to the friends of the hiker, as well the emergency personnel who were helpful in all aspects of the rescue mission. Shawnigan RCMP was first notified of the hike-gone bad by an observant Shawnigan resident who noticed what appeared to be a distress signal. “After about 30 minutes of observing the incident through high power binoculars, this civic-minded citizen called RCMP expressing concern for a party of hikers that was clearly in distress,” wrote Thomas Storer, the brotherin-law of sharp-eyed Byron Berbaum, in an email to the News Leader Pictorial. “No accolades for this action are sought; recognition of responsible citizenry is,” said Storer. Wright cautioned folks climbing mountains to be prepared, know routes, pack well, and let others know departure times. “Hope for the best and plan for the worst,” Wright said. “(Monday’s hikers) were off the beaten path. There were some trails lower from where they were. Even taking the beaten path is challenging on that mountain. “For others planning on going out, just know where you’re going, your route, and always let someone know when and where you’re going,” said Wright.

Senior rides the island in bid to cure MS Tip to tail: Duncan stop near the end of the road for annual fundraising tour

ome seniors ride into the sunset. David Cox rides to raise money for curing multiple sclerosis. “I hope there’s a cure,” he said. “No one should have to suffer from this disease.” The 68-year-old Colwood cyclist visited the News Leader Pictorial recently during the third bi-annual Van Isle End-to-End-to-End Ride For MS. “Long days, sore butt, but my donation level is at $4,260, so that is good news,” he emailed the Leader July 5 during his 1,100-kilomtre odyssey from Colwood to Port Hardy, and back — including the weekend’s Cowichan Valley Grape Escape tour. Cox is on his 19th MS Bike Tour, and his seventh MS fundraising tour in B.C. He was forced to skip 2010 after a bike fall fractured his shoulder. “As for road idiots, it goes without saying there are some, especially the 18-wheelers (truckers) who like to hug the wrong white line — that can be nerve-wracking, given the amount of air-pressure flow created,” he wrote.

Tonight the first meeting set to chart the future of health care in Lake Cowichan

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Input wanted: Residents encouraged to attend July 10 meeting to share their health care needs

Tyson Jones

News Leader Pictorial


he first of three community meetings to discuss the health care needs of Lake Cowichan is set to take place tonight. The Cowichan Communities Health Network, Choose Cowichan Lake, the Cowichan Valley Division of Family Practices and the Vancouver Island Health Authority have formed a group that will work towards developing a model for an integrated multidis-

ciplinary primary and community care team. “The group will be working with physicians, so we are trying to get the team put in place before we have new doctors in town; that way everything will be ready when they arrive,” says Valerie Nicol, executive director of the Cowichan Valley Division of Family Practice. The care group is not being created to help find replacements for Lake Cowichan’s two current doctors — who are leaving at the end of September — but will give health care options to Cowichan residents while they are without family physicians. Nicol was unable to say if the care team would be able to meet all of the medical needs of Lake Cowichan residents, but a clearer picture will be available after the

public meetings have taken place. The first public meeting will be held July 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Lake Cowichan Town Hall at 39 South Shore Rd. Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting so the working group will have first-hand information on the health care needs of the community. “The meetings are an excellent opportunity for the community to have their voices heard,” said Nicol. “The more people that come to the meetings, the better we will be able to understand their needs and build the care team around them.” If you are unable to make it to this meeting, the group plans on holding two more meetings at different locations to try and make it as convenient as possible for residents to attend.

Look at what’s about to arrive at the Station

New magazine: aims to tell stories of your community in a more sophisticated package


tation. A street in downtown Duncan that begins where the community was born — a place one could argue is the hub of the Cowichan Valley wheel. Station. A point of convergence: a dependable touchstone for life’s arrivals and departures, its breakups and reunions — the spot where journeys end and begin. Station. A position in life, a destination you’ve been working toward where all that hard work has paid off — where respect has been earned and the finer things in life are there to be enjoyed. the JEWEL in Station. A magazine the CROWN about life in Cowichan Alderlea — a place where the best FARM local writers and photogJen raphers tell stories that WOIKE touch on all of the above. Station (the magazine) is Cowichan’s new quarterly glossy publication for those who want a little bit more — more photos, more depth to their stories, more attention to the quality of the presentation. It’s a place where Cowichan stories can find a place to expand and breathe, a place where our journalists go behind the scenes to unveil things you may not know about people and places and issues you do. Some of you — about half — will be receiving this limited circulation product at your doorstep from your News Leader Pictorial carrier as early as this morning. The rest will be able to pick up a copy at a variety of select Cowichan outlets. Savour the moment. You’ve arrived.

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

This we like

So far, this July has been a great time to be hanging out around Duncan. Not only have we had weather of the decidedly brilliant variety, we have had a plethora of fun events adding all the more reason to be outside downtown. Front-and-centre has been the 39 Days of July entertainment series filling the air with music. And things really get serious this weekend with the annual parade and related activities. Enjoy.

Flora Drost, 4, and Bette Bergman enjoy Ryan McMahon and Big River July 3 during 39 Days Of July.

Yearning for some Little House in the home Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial


f only we could take a trip back to days featured in one of my favourite shows as a young lass. Days when chores were completed, disputes snuffed quickly, and manners polished daily, all to please Ma and Pa. And such things as chores, manners, and appropriate behaviours were a little more common. Am I dating myself with hopes one day my offspring will have a smattering of Little House on the Prairie in them? That they’ll help out around the house, say please and thanks and know just how to act around adults, without having to be reminded and asked? I don’t care if I’m living a dream, or reaching a little too far back to nostalgic days, it’s my latest mission.

And it’s an aspiration most recently inspired by an exceptionally well-written article my editor forwarded to me, Spoiled Rotten, by Elizabeth Kolbert. The article won my favour for many reasons but mostly as Kolbert quotes Pamela Druckerman from the best parenting book I’ve read to date, Bringing up Bebe. “Also key, Druckerman discovered, is just saying non (no),” writes Kolbert. “In contrast to American parents, French parents, when they say it, actually mean it.” And then she quotes Druckerman: “They view learning to cope with no as a crucial step in a child’s evolution. It forces them to understand that there are other people in the world, with needs as powerful as their own.” What really awakened my drive was Kolbert’s comparison of a young girl of the Matsigenka tribe of the Peruvian Amazon who had no clear role in a leaf-gathering

It’s as inevitable as the falling leaves in autumn and an angry letter about local government spending. As we put the paper together yesterday morning, local firefighters responded to a grass burn in a North Cowichan field. No confirmation on the cause, but if careless human activity didn’t play a role, it will before the summer ends. It’s dry out there ladies and gentlemen. Use a little common sense.


expedition, but quickly found ways to make herself useful. Young Yanira’s life was pitted against several other American examples including a Los Angeles-based father asking his eight-year-old son five times to please go take a bath or a shower, to no avail. “After the fifth plea went unheeded, the father picked the boy up and carried him into the bathroom. A few minutes later, the kid, still unwashed, wandered into another room to play a video game.” This type of behaviour among kids who don’t respect adults and are just pure lazy sickens me. I often wonder why others don’t feel this as strongly as I do. Has it become too much of a task to deal with these behavioural issues? Is it too hard to make time to teach our

young how to do things so they can one day do it on their own? Is it too much work when modern parents are already overworked, trying to make ends meet with too much on their plates? Maybe the difference is modern parents are just too busy to make these things priority. I don’t care how busy I am. My motto’s staying the same. If I put in the hard work now, one day I’ll be kicking my feet up, watching re-runs of my old favourite shows.

How safe has the driving been so far this summer? ‘’There’s lots of idiot drivers. It’s embarrassing being an N driver and that’s what we have to look up to.”

Madison Innes, Duncan

Cowichan Recyclist Aaron Bichard was among 65 cyclists who hit the Cowichan Valley Trail last month, riding from Glenora Trailhead Park to the Kinsol Trestle for the 28-kilometre Pedal to the Trestle bike ride on June 23. All proceeds went to benefit Canadian Mental Health Association.

Last week’s story on the garbage burn on Cowichan Tribes land sparked a flurry of responses from readers. Here is a sampling: Dear editor This is the same Cowichan Tribes that lectures us on environmental issues like basic road construction projects in Stoney Hill. All the chief has to do is call the RCMP. We would. John Koury comments submitted at

comments submitted at

Dear editor All this waste comes from off-reserve contractors who find it easier to bypass proper disposal and recycle methods by taking advantage of this cheapest way of disposal. They are equally responsible. I think most people would be surprised to find this waste is actually “yours” — construction waste wood and debris from your very own diking project etc. If there are diapers in there it most likely came from off-reserve. Next time you hire a contractor to dispose of something maybe ask where it’s going. To group all of the members of Cowichan Tribes in the illegal activities of one person is wrong. John Charlie comments submitted at

Dear editor Many people spend many days, hours and years protecting the environment to have it all taken away with burning refuse in seconds. Plus, there is a fire ban in effect — for whom? There are many means to recycle and dispose of these things in a proper manner. Sorry, but

Reserve garbage burning a burning issue for many

Dear editor Would you have us believe the efforts of a few disgusting lawbreakers should paint all of Cowichan Tribes with the same brush? If it weren’t for the Tribes as well as other concerned citizens Stoney Hill could very well be another Cliffs over Maple Bay. I wonder if the race card has been called out on SIA for its soil dumping proposal in the Shawnigan watershed? Has anyone called out North Cowichan or former Cliffs Over Maple Bay developer Warren Paulin over that terrible “white deed?” Jacob Teufel

“I’ve seen lots of dumb driving: cutting-off; not signalling; running for red lights.”

Andrew Leong

if I started to burn tires, diapers, couches and whatnot in my backyard? Then what? Kristi Jones comments submitted at

Dear editor Not only is this ridiculously stupid, but a real eye opener. How is it the RCMP and fire department have no right to put out this fire as it was harming the air everyone breathes? I honestly don’t seem to understand the fact that just because it was on the reserve doesn’t give the fire department the right to put it out. If it were a house on fire on the reserve, they have every right to put it out. Not only was this fire polluting the air, it was harming every man, woman, child and animal breathing in these toxic fumes. What makes this alright to just stand by and let it happen. Better yet, what the heck was this person thinking when they lit it? I am disappointed in not only our mayor, but also the chief for not taking a stand and letting the fire department put it out. Nikki Gollinger comments submitted at

Dear editor This is not an “us” and “them” issue. The burning is taking place on a reserve, in this case, a First Nations reserve. But lots of burning takes place every day in the Agricultural Land Reserve. Reserves have regulations that supersede those of local government. The CVRD has been well aware of burning on both kinds of reserves for years. Nobody should be acting like this is a big surprise. What this is, is a terrific opportunity for the Tribes to govern the use of their lands accordingly. You can bet the immediate neighbours

So you want a letter published? Here are some tips: Keep it short — 300 words or less; Keep it local — letters raised in response to issues raised in our pages get top priority; Keep it clean — attack the issue, not the individual. You must include your full name, home community and a phone number where we can reach you during office hours. Addresses and phone numbers will not be published. Letters will be edited for clarity, grammar, length and good taste. Name-withheld letters will not be published. We receive more letters than we have space for. Publication is not guaranteed.

of the burn pile are no happier than anybody else is. And as for the Ministry of Environment? In my oinion, they do nothing for anyone. Pay attention to what recently happened in Shawnigan Lake and the SIA proposal to understand just how much they care about any of us. Sharon Jackson comments submitted at

Dear editor While the dumping and the burning are both to be condemned, it is absolutely vital that we not fall prey to the race baiting and judgment. These are the actions of no more than a few individuals with poor judgment and a lack of respect. You will find such people in just about any community. Sarah Juliusson comments submitted at

Dear editor Wow, I’m shocked at how the race card has overshadowed this issue. Stick to the facts people. Toxic waste is being burned and is affecting the health of many. Period. I’m not allowed to roast marshmallows in my backyard. If I do I will be fined. This individual needs to be fined for blatant disregard of our environment, and fined heavily.

Sowing politics of division won’t help our environment or our community In my opinion: Don’t confuse the issue


e all agree the burn was unacceptable. I haven’t seen one person disagree with that. What I think is happening here is some who have an axe to grind with our Cowichan Tribes friends and neighbours are opportunistically seizing this story to lash out. It makes me wonder that perhaps some of these commentators don’t really care about the burn in terms of the impact on the earth but simply see an opportunity to publicly kick down an entire group of people that they have been taught to dislike and fear. Why would I think that? Because if one truly cares about a solution to this and many more issues facing our environment, inflammatory and over-simplistic them-versus-us points of view serve to keep the helpful solutions and conversations from even happening. Thankfully, there are some people at our community’s leadership table who know better. I acknowledge problems in our backyard and more than that, I do my best to help. What we’ve got here is a public figure in our community, who is fighting another political battle (Stoney Hill) by opportunistically casting aspersions on Cowichan Tribes. By questioning Tribes’ integrity, former federal Conservative candidate and North Cowichan councillor John Koury is adding to already existing tensions in the Cowichan Valley’s cultural divide. The federal Conservatives have no moral authority on this matter. The Conservative government has absolutely decimated environmental protections across the board. Anyone interested in knowing what hypocrite means on a macro scale, simply type in Stephen Harper government and devastation and see what pops up. For the record, Koury also does not have the moral authority to include me in his trumped ‘we’ in his commentary. I love this community too much to sit back and watch a North Cowichan politician trying to add to this putrid stinking mess by showing us what arrogant and irresponsible leadership looks like. Stoking the fire of ‘us’ versus ‘them’ in this small community will not bring us healthy air quality. It will bring us soured relationships and dead ends. There is a way through this situation, but it will involve communication, understanding and striving together. Thank goodness there are folks at the leadership table who get this and will help achieve this. Meanwhile, you might as well put the RCMP on speed dial for me too. I’ll be standing up to all the thousands of environmental protections the Conservative government has torn apart in order to turn this country into a giant ATM.

This was originally four separate posts made by Amanda Marchand at in response to comments on last week’s story about a garbage burn on the Cowichan Tribes reserve.

And as usual, the Duncan Business Improvement Association’s got lots up its sleeve with an array of family-friendly fun activities planned in the downtown core. “There’s delicious food available everywhere from outdoor dining at our downtown restaurants to food trucks and hot dog stands,” states promotional material. Duncan Daze boasts sweet street sales, children’s train ride and carnival, climbing wall, merry-go swing, spin the wheel and Wii games. And better yet, all activities are free. In conjunction with summer fest organizers, the DBIA is also hosting Duncan’s Got Talent at City Square, a professional street bike stuntman, tattoo pipers, and live music and dancing. “If you’re thinking of coming downtown for just an hour, think twice,” said Falkner. “That happened at Children’s Day.

uncan’s annual summer shindig steams up this weekend with its Children’s Parade Friday evening and Saturday afternoon’s Grand Parade. The 34th annual Duncan Summer Festival kicked off June 28 with live music in the park, and entertainment acts booked daily through July as well as with Children’s Day at Charles Hoey Park Sunday. But this is the highlight weekend. The fun continues with the kiddy parade Friday at 6 p.m. starting at Jubilee and Kenneth. “The kids dress up as whatever they’d like and decorate their bikes, wagons, whatever they’d like,” said fest organizer John Falkner. “There are no rules, except you got to bring your camera.

Falkner reminds folks not to forget about the music lineups booked solid throughout the weekend. “Friday night, as soon as the Children’s Parade’s over, Reid Williams and Kelly Girvan are on the main stage (City Square) and then there’s also Pretty Heart Parkers and Small Town Villians, all local talent.” Falkner said his vision for 39 days of music’s going over well. “It’s working. People are coming downtown and staying.” For music schedules, visit:

Hand-crafted clothing: Hilary Else and Ali Bertin have had a productive 2013 making new summer creations from hand-dyed merino wool. Their collection ranges from ultra light to super thick weight wool and you can check out the results on Saturday, July 27 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at

the Matraea Centre, 170 Craig St. in Duncan. Come and experience the benefits of wearing light weight wool in the summer — temperature regulating factors with non-moisture and non-odour absorbing qualities, especially cool in our new breezy styles,” the pair state in a media release.

All you need to do is purchase one of Kroeker’s screen-printed tank tops from and money from that sale will go directly to the BCSPCA.

Sporting the sporty spice of the sportsluxe look Give froofy and elegant a rest: enjoy the free and casual summer look of sportswear Eliza Faulkner


News Leader Pictorial


f you haven’t yet noticed, sportswear is back in a big way. Everything from Nike sneakers, to sports bras, Adidas jackets, and cycling shorts are making their way into the mainstream. And don’t call it sporty just yet. The fashion crowd is calling it “sportsluxe” and it’s about to make its way into your wardrobe. Sporty gals will rejoice, and serious fashion types can give their high heels and froo-froo frocks a rest. And with summer in full swing, we’ll all be singing to the mountaintops when we can ditch the chiffon maxi dresses for sweatwicking tanks and tees. Pop into Cowichan’s latest yoga and sportswear shop, Pursuit of Happiness to get some tips on how to get the look. Here are five ways to channel your inner sporty spice this summer.

This has been discussed (in earlier issues), but sneakers are the item this season. Wear them with everything you own. That’s right, jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses and more. Bright-coloured ‘free’ sneakers will be the most fun, while a simple black and white pair will add an air of chic to your outfit. Mesh tanks

Mesh is fabulous on a piping hot day. Just like Soccer pinnies, these hole-filled mesh tanks are great for the cool factor. Wear a fluorescent tank underneath and if you’re feeling confident, layer with your favourite sportsbra underneath. Sports bras and swim wear (as tank tops)

The croptop also seems to be high on the list as a trend of the moment. Kill two trends with one stone and wear your bra as a crop top with high-waisted jeans and skirts.

Finding the Look

Colour and prints

Ditch the soft hues of summers past. Arid whites and muddy coloured cottons can be stored away for another year. Throw on some bold black with those fuschia trainers, and layer up with a printed sweat-wicking tank and a cobalt blue hoodie. Layer strong colours together to create the colour-blocked look of the season. A printed yoga tank looks great with jeans or tucked into a ‘50s style skirt.

Baseball caps

Steal your boyfriend/partner/littlebrother’s baseball cap this summer and wear it on a bad hair day. Never have baseball hats been so utterly cool than the summer of 2013. Take advantage of this and enjoy the ease of a fuss-free look. Enjoy this resurgence of sporty streetwear. Like every trend that comes and goes, you’ll probably balk at these tips in two years, when we’re all wearing nipped-in waists and kitten heels. More importantly make every trend your own. Pick and choose what works for you and remember: the chicest thing of all is being your own really rad self.

Seven dollars from each sale goes to SPCA from 15

After seeing how the sale of a garment or product can result in a gift being given to someone in need, Kroeker decided this was a model he wanted to use in his own business. “I appreciated the simplicity and transparency of this idea and like that I know exactly what my contribution is going toward.” Kroeker donates half of every T-shirt sale ($15) to the BCSPCA. “I chose to partner with the BCSPCA because they received straight A’s in Money Sense magazine’s charity ratings for 2011 and it’s important that the organization I’m giving your money to uses it efficiently and effectively.” What’s left over after the donations goes towards purchasing high quality T-shirts and local screenprinting services. All of the Updogs cotton tank tops feature screen-prints of Brian’s own Boston Terriers, Sweetie and Kingston, in various yoga poses, like downward and upward dog. As a yoga instructor, graphic designer, and passionate dog-lover, Kroeker has managed to merge his life loves together and create a generous and conscious way of doing business. It will be interesting to watch this exciting organization grow and prosper from right here in the Cowichan Valley. You can connect with Kroeker and Updogs online as he searches for dog photos and imagery for future T-shirts. Send in a photo of your dog and it could make the cut for the next T-shirt.

offering their gratitude to Cowichan residents who helped turn an unfortunate incident into a positive memory. “On July 3, I pulled our car into the parking lot of Duncan Pets store. Inexplicably, my foot slipped off the brake pedal and onto the accelerator, causing the car to lurch forward and hit the wall. Thankfully, the building didn’t sustain any damage, neither did we, but the car’s front end was not so lucky,” Bernie writes. “Carmen, the owner of Duncan Pets, immediately came to inquire if we were hurt, and a young couple with a little dog who were in a car directly behind us kindly hung around to make sure we were OK. They generously offered us use of their cellphone to enable us to call BCAA, and Steve of Cowichan Towing was most efficient and courteous in towing us home to Parksville. To all these people who readily came to our aid, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.” • Have you checked out the Chemainus Wednesday Market yet?

Thirsty writer offers a tasty way to get a read on beer


For some it sounds like the dream vacation: a road trip crisscrossing the southern portion of British Columbia on a mission to sample as many craft beers as possible. For Joe Wiebe, it was research. The “Thirsty Writer” was gathering material for his new book Craft Beer Revolution: The Insider’s Guide to B.C. Breweries.

You can join him as he raises a glass to its launch Thursday at the Craig Street Brew Pub in Duncan. Guests are invited to drop by the pub at 6 p.m. to meet Wiebe, pick up a personalized copy of the book, and try some of Duncan’s contribution to the revolution. “In Craft Beer Revolution, Wiebe documents the

fascinating craft beer movement in B.C., profiling its history, the breweries themselves, the people behind the kegs and casks, and the colourful stories,” event promotional material reads. “The book is filled to the brim with recommendations for beer tasting tours around the province, lists of the best brews that B.C. has to offer, and entertaining trivia that will make beer geeks salivate.”

Mill Bay looking ahead to the Good Old Daze People from the Past: Al Capone among the historical figures visiting the south end this month

News Leader Pictorial


aureen Alexander’s hoping the Good Old Daze will be a standard set of days marked down on south-end calendars every year. She’s working on a new event she’s hoping will become Mill Bay’s go-to historical celebration. The President of the Mill Bay/Malahat Historical Society, Alexander’s created The Good Old Daze set to run starting July 13, where Mill Bay business owners will show off life-size duplicates of historical figures they’ve created. “They are a hoot,” said Alexander of the 53 “People from the Past” businesses have come up with, including the gal hanging out at Mill Bay’s Curves, who’s sporting a black long skirt and full-sleeved blouse to work out in with the businesses’ clientele. “That’s what they wore then,” explained Alexander, showing a photo dating back to 1911 of women mountain climbing with similar skirts. Alexander borrowed the idea from a small community very similar to Mill Bay. She had been visiting her son in Halifax about three years ago when she came across Mahone Bay and the town’s historical annual activity. “This is a smash success there,” said Alexander. “They’ve been it at for 16 years, and there are hundreds of people coming by the busload to take part in this. “The Chamber of Commerce there decided the businesses needed an event to get people to stop and get out of their cars.” Just like Mill Bay, Mahone Bay’s town centre was set off a major highway.

Mill Bay/Malahat Historical society’s Maureen Alexander poses with two of the life-size figures that will be featured in what she is hoping becomes Mill Bay’s “it” historical celebration The Good Old Daze. The figure on the very left shows the type of attire women wore exercising, including mountain hiking in 1911. The colourful figure in the back is the modern-day version of a fitness gal. “The similarities really struck me. I talked to the organizers, businesses, and local people to see how they got it going.” Alexander pitched it to the historical society, the South Cowichan Chamber of Commerce, as well as folks at Mill Bay Centre. “Everyone was right on board. We have 20 businesses and 10 community groups taking part,” she said. From July 13 to July 25, folks in the community can pick up maps at participating businesses and find the 53 models hanging out at local hotspots, including Rusticana Coffee. If you hit up the coffee shop, you’ll meet German homemaker Melitta Bentz, who takes

credit for inventing the first coffee filter. Also kicking around town will be American gangster Al Capone. He might be spotted at the Mill Bay Marina, where Capone is rumored to have docked during a rum run. A final gathering takes place July 25 at Mill Bay Centre where votes can be cast and winners of prizes will be announced. And business winners of fan favourite, best dressed, and most creative awards will receive cash prices to use toward their charity of choice. “It’s a way for us to create an event that’s uniquely Mill Bay,” said Alexander. “It’s also a

way for people to promote their businesses too.” She’s also pumped about using the event to remind folks of the importance of the past. “One of the reasons I picked it, is I’ve had so many people, and not just young people, generally just across the board say things like ‘History, that’s dead and gone and doesn’t mean anything to me.’ “What I’m trying to point out to them is the past creates the present.” Also, on Sundays starting from July 28 until Aug. 18, the figures will be displayed at the Bamberton site.

Mystery writer delves into the psychology of psychiatrist New release: Chevy Stevens also draws from her Shawnigan childhood for her third Nadine Lavoie story

Nanaimo News Bulletin


courtesy Chevy Stevens

Shawnigan Lake native Chevy Stevens is poised to return to the bestseller lists with her third novel.

sychiatrist Nadine Lavoie helps her patients deal with traumas from their past, but the doctor has her own darkness she’s been avoiding. There are pieces of her life she doesn’t remember, she suffers from claustrophobia and seven years ago, her teenage daughter ran away from home and has been living on the streets. An encounter with a patient in an intensive care unit who tried to commit suicide triggers memories from her own life and the psychiatrist is forced to deal with the childhood traumas she buried in her mind. Lavoie is the psychiatrist readers were introduced to in Chevy Stevens’ first two

books. Now in Stevens’ third book, Always Watching, people learn her story. For the plot, Stevens took pieces of her childhood growing up in Shawnigan Lake and incorporated them into the novel. “It was very nostalgic for me to be able to include things that were part of my own childhood,” said Stevens. When she was a child there was a hippie commune near the lake who lived off the land. Stevens combined that memory with her research into cults. She wondered what would happen if there was someone who came to the commune who would use their power to manipulate people. Aaron Quinn, the commune’s fictional leader terrifies Lavoie, but she doesn’t know why. Stevens first book, Still Missing, was

released in 2009, and made the New York Times bestseller list. Her second novel, Never Knowing, is an international bestseller. Stevens grew up in Shawnigan Lake and lives in the Nanaimo area with her family. She has been busy working on her fourth book and taking care of her daughter Piper, who is six months old. The author deals with issues that don’t tend to be discussed in the open or still have a stigma attached to them – issues such as depression and addiction. Those subjects have struck a chord with some readers who have told Stevens it affected their lives and helped them. “To know you have impacted someone’s life, that is profound,” she said. Her books are available at all major bookstores. For more information about Always Watching please go to

ake Cowichan Secondary School Grade 10 student, Lauren Frost, is a talented writer. Of that there is little doubt. In her short career, her talent has already won awards, including one for an essay she wrote for Staples Canada that won the school $25,000 in computer equipment last year. Frost is also an aspiring actress who regularly participates in Kaatza Lakeside Players productions. She has combined these two passions to write a play called Virgin Carrie. The play was selected to be presented by Tom Fogarty’s Grade 9 and 10

drama students on June 13 and 14. Virgin Carrie dramatizes the kinds of inclusion and exclusion mentality that can happen in a high school setting. It follows the protagonist, Carrie, played by Ashley Pastor, and her endeavour to become school president even though her adversary, the more popular Chloe, played by Ashley Vomacka, dates all the right guys, goes to all the right parties and is seen as the obvious choice. “At the very end it basically wraps up and says we should all be ourselves,” says Frost. “The party life and all of that means nothing if it’s not who we are.” Frost says she got the idea from watching interactions between students at LCS, but she

Born in Park Valley, Saskatchewan, her family moved to Duncan in 1956. Marrying in 1959, Phyllis eventually settled with her family in 100 Mile House in 1979. A successful businesswoman and accomplished Chinese chef, she was well-known among family and friends for her many on-the-go projects and hobbies. A proud member and active volunteer for the Hospice Palliative Care Society, she also enjoyed the lapidary and genealogy clubs. Phyllis even found time to teach basic computer skills to interested seniors. She loved photography, painting flower pictures, crocheting, sewing and receiving frequent visits from her wild (pet) crow “Castro� and his little family. We would like to thank the staff of 100 Mile House District Hospital and Hospice Palliative Care Society for the compassionate care she received, and the support given to our family.

PARKES: Margaret McLeod (nee Robertson) September 30, 1927 – July 2, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our mother, Margaret. Lovingly known to family and friends as “Grandma,� Mom was quite a character – outspoken, comical, loving and friendly. Raised in Manitoba, Mom often recounted stories from a childhood she referred to as “the happiest years of her life�. Influenced largely by her father, whom she greatly admired, she lived by strong but simple values and always made the most of what she had. Fortunate enough to marry her first love (Robert Alfred Parkes) in 1943, they worked their way north to eventually settle in Lynn Lake until Dad’s passing in May, 1974. After moving to Alberta to raise their two youngest children and moving back and forth between British Columbia and Manitoba, Mom finally settled on Vancouver Island and has spent her last several years here. She will forever be remembered as a woman who worked hard at being a wife and mother, doing whatever was necessary to make a house a home for her family. Fiercely loyal to her family and friends she had maintained many childhood relationships while making plenty of new friends along the way – people were always welcome in her home. What has always impressed us was her ability to recount events from the past complete with dates, times, people and places. This woman knew her stuff and she would love to share her stories with anyone who was interested,- and what great stories they were. She always seemed to be the “go to� person, whether you needed a hand, a good chat, a game of cards, advice, laughter or even a good “swift kick in the ass.� She was not one to mince words. Margaret was predeceased by husband (Bob) Robert (1974), sons Randy (1952), Donny (1954), Ken (1989), Bob (2013), granddaughter Rachel (1984) and great grandson Conner (2011). Mom will be dearly missed by her surviving children Richard (Sharelle), Gordon (Fay), Nelson (Faye Jean), Harvey (Laura), Walter (Jennifer), Margaret (Serge), daughter-in-law Diana, siblings “Dot� Dorothy, “Bunny� Bernice (Fred), “Reen� Irene and Ross (Pat) along with many grandchildren, stepgrandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and friends. In lieu of flowers, Mom’s favourite charity was the Firefighter’s Burn Fund 2504 Richmond Road Victoria, BC V8R 4S4 http:/ A Service will be held at 1:00 p.m., Friday, July 12, 2013 at First Memorial, 375 Brae Road, Duncan, B.C.

It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved mother, who lost her valiant battle with cancer at the Cowichan District Hospital with her loving family by her side. She was predeceased by her grandson Mikey in 2004. Sharon is survived by her adoring parents Albin and Georgina Falt, husband Leon Smith and her daughters Deanna Schmidt (Ron), Gina Young (Shawn) and Shauna Thomas (Mike Vipond), her “favourite� only brother Bernie Falt, sisters Camille Wright (Rich) and Theresa Bodger (Don). Grandchildren Andrea La, Danielle Schmidt, Kadeyn and Trinity Vipond, and nephews Derek Wright (Diana) and Tyler Wright. Sharon was born in Victoria and by the age of two her family set roots in Cowichan Bay, where she spent what she considered a “blessed� childhood with her partner in crime, her cousin Karleen. She went on to become an LPN, a job that was a perfect fit for such a caring and compassionate woman. She worked at the Cowichan District Hospital and the Gorge Rd. Hospital before moving to the interior, finally settling into the rural life of Horsefly, B.C. some 26 years ago. Sharon became very active and involved in her community. She supported Ducks Unlimited, fundraised for the Fire Department and was an avid participant in the fall fair. Mom’s passion was the Horsefly Women’s Institute which she was president for the past 10 years. During her years in Horsefly, she amassed an amazing network of friends. Mom loved animals and flowers of any kind but her greatest love was her grandchildren. Gramms was an accomplished gardener and extremely artistic. She was also a generous and loving woman who was fiercely loyal and protective of those she loved. Her keen sense of humour helped sustain us through the most trying of times, especially the past few months. She died as she lived, with grace, wit and a minimum of fuss. We will be eternally grateful for the loving care provided by Dr. Bass, Dr. Pewarchuk, Dr. Wilson, Intern Jessie and the second floor nursing staff at Cowichan District Hospital. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday July 13, 2013 at noon pm at St. Edward’s Church, 2085 Maple Bay Rd. Reception to follow. Being that Mom was never one for formalities, please dress in what you are most comfortable. Purple is encouraged, as that was her favourite colour. Condolences at

DEATHS FIEGE, Lucy Mary February 11, 1927 - June 20, 2013

Lucy passed away peacefully after a lengthy and determined battle against Parkinson’s Disease. She was predeceased by her parents, Henry and Annie, and older siblings, Tony (Beppy), Jean (Bruce) and Gus (Pat). She is survived by her younger brother Joe (Margaret) and nieces and nephews. Lucy was born and raised in the farm community of Windthorst Saskatchewan. Along with many other families, the Fieges left the Prairies in the 30’s and settled here in Cobble Hill. Lucy finished her education here and went on to work at different jobs including telephone operator until the Cobble Hill system was automated and for many years she was head candler and packer at at Norie’s Egg Farm. And throughout the years she was chief caregiver to her parents. Lucy was pretty, adventurous and always active. For a while she raised German Shepherd puppies. She then turned her attention to horses and for many years she was a common sight out for an evening ride on her favourite mare, usually bareback. Lucy had a thirst for knowledge and read extensively on subjects that interested her, such as genetics, horse geneaology and natural health. After moving to Duncan Lucy happily spent her time in her garden. Lucy was a loving aunt, a staungh friend and will be forever missed. We shall hold you in our hearts forever. God Bless.

According to Ruth Foster, Director of Cancer Activities for the O.E.S., “There are four categories of annual giving: educational bursaries, equipment, supplies and Cancer Dressings.” Last year, $8,362.29 was collected from the sale of cancelled stamps and postcards throughout British Columbia and Yukon to be distributed for Cancer Research or Cancer Dressings, wherever it is needed. (We must thank our friends in the community for keeping us well supplied with stamps.) Sunset Chapter #44, Duncan has one of our 39 Cancer Dressing Stations, located downstairs in the Mercury Theatre on Brae Road, Duncan. Last year, throughout our jurisdiction, 170 dedicated members volunteered 8120 hours producing 69,708 cancer dressings at a cost of $9,599.91. (We’ve used up inventory on hand, which once again reduced expenses. There is a need for dressings in Northern BC, so these numbers will likely increase next year.)

p m a St Out r e c n a C

Presently, sterilization is only being done by certain Hospitals and Clinics by trained and qualified staff in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna andd Prince George. The present method of distribution on is - the hospital staff will give the patient a supplyy of cancer dressings to take home. Local cancer patients requiring dressings are asked to contact the Canadian Cancer Society Office at 250-746-4134. Cancer is a dreadful disease without the added burden of the expense of dressings often required. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO CHARGE TO THE PATIENT. All that is required is a doctor’s referral. By supporting our Stamp Project, attending bazaars and teas, the Cabaret Night or buying tickets on our annual Cancer Draw, you enable us to continue our efforts in the fight against cancer. We’ve had a Polar Swim each February since 2005, first at Transfer Beach in Ladysmith and starting this year, at Departure Bay in Nanaimo. Thanks to pledges/donations, the members willing to brave the chilly water, have raised over $50,000.00 for Cancer Projects. Please drop off your used stamps at the Cowichan News Leader/Pictorial Office between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm, Mon. to Fri., #2-5380 Trans Canada Hwy., the United Steelworkers Office, 351 Brae Road, or the local Cancer Office, #100-394 Duncan Street. NB: Our Stamps Dealers dictate how the stamps are to be trimmed, so we are asking our friends in the community NOT to TRIM stamps off envelopes. Just leave the stamps intact and we’ll do the rest. We don’t want any stamps to be spoiled. Thanks.

Breakers’ swimming: Plenty of top fives and improved times Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial


owichan Valley Breakers enjoyed some fun in the sun during the 47th-annual Nanaimo White Rapids Swim Club’s invitational

meet. A total of 26 Breakers attended, swimming a combined 161 races during the weekend. Club members made 51 finals and achieved a dozen top-three finishes, according to assistant coach Drake McKay. Head coach Allison Wood and Rachael Newman were the other coaches for the Breakers at the summer swimming meet. Many swimmers made dramatic drops in time. Among them were: Madoc Trafford, who took nine seconds off his 100-metre I.M. time to 1:47.91; Wyatt Rorick, who reduced his 50 fly time by eight seconds to 58.04; Mackenna Henderson with a five-second drop in her 50 free to 41.01; and Sofie Bloss, who trimmed four seconds from her previous 100 free best to 1:26.18. Making top fives was no easy task, but several swimmers did it. Lukas Bloss came fourth in the Div. 3 50-metre breaststroke (52.54). Brynna Coogan took second for the Div. 1 100 free (1:49.56) and fourths in the 100 I.M. (2:22.95), 50 breast

(1:11.09) and 50 fly (1:17.82). Henderson secured fourth in the Div. 3 50 breast final in 49.02. Sydnae Lowe managed fourth in the Div. 4 100 breast (1:37.94) and fifth in the 200 I.M. (3:20.90). Coach McKay came first in his Div. 7 50 free (26.26). Kenzie Pask earned fifth in the Div. 4 100 back (1:34.01). Rorick collected a trio of fourths in the Div. 2 50 back (51.71), 50 breast (58.91) and 50 free (43.80). Kealey Scott collected firsts in O Category 1 for 100 I.M. (1:26.57), 50 back (41.74), 50 breast (45.49) and 50 free (35.77), with a second in 100 free (1:22.47) that was a provincial qualifying time. William Townsend earned fourth in Div. 7 50 fly (32.32), fourth in 100 breast (1:34.72), second in 100 fly (1:17.19) and second in 100 free (1:07.55). Madoc Trafford took fourth for the Div. 2 100 I.M. (1:47.91), second in 50 back (48.83), third in 50 breast (58.25) and third in 50 free (40.77). Rhys Trafford got fourth in the Div. 3 100 I.M. final (2:02.57), James Urquhart placed fifth in the Div. 4 100 breast (1:59.14) and Reid Urquhart’s best showing was fifth in Div. 6 100 fly (1:18.73). All the swimmers have another chance to improve and stake their claim against the competition in the next meet at Campbell River.

Many newspapers offer �lyers in print and electronic form. Eighty-�ive per cent of Canadians use �lyers – and by far (90 per cent) they tell us they use the print �lyer. Canadians are embracing newspapers across all devices. Research shows the average Canadian touches newspaper media six times in a day: twice each in print and online, once via tablet and once on a phone. Canadians want newspapers. They also want newspaper ads. They expect newspapers to have ads. And they trust ads in newspapers, both in print and online, more than ads in other media. Why the misperception about newspapers? The data for Canadian newspapers is not the case in the United States. And their bad news spills over the border.

Suzanne Raitt

In the U.S., a city might have one local paper. In Canada, many of our cities have lots of options in terms of newspapers. More papers equals more competition, which keeps the industry on its toes. As such, Canadian papers provide lots of interesting options such as more colour, unique ad shapes and placement, QR codes, multimedia opportunities and more. In the U.S., papers had the opportunity to get sleepy (and they did). Newspapers in Canada are vibrant. About one quarter of all ad dollars spend in media in Canada is spent in newspapers. This roughly matches the amount spent on TV. This is also more than the amount spent on internet advertising. Advertisers clearly agree on the power of newspapers.

We lead the way in print and online.

Nationals make a strong start

Doubleheader sweep: Midget AA provincial hosts possess pitching and overall depth Don Bodger A busload of athletes and coaches from the Cowichan Valley makes the usual strong impression at the Operation Trackshoes meet in Victoria.

laden with Cowichan players did well in the Provincial Regional Championships. The U16 girls won gold, the U18 boys and U18 girls both took silver, the U16 boys finished fourth and the U15 boys — new this year — came seventh. The U16 girls included the valley’s Hannah Morten, Ciel Arbour-Boehme and Rachel Bates. Morten and Arbour-Boehme also played on the U18 team that was made up mostly of valley players — Georgia Whist, Carolina Mahecha, Jenn Lemon and Avi Sharabi of Brentwood, Shawnigan’s Nicole Crowley and Michelle Evans, and Cowichan’s Sam Jory, Allie White, Adrienne Saari, Leah Theobald, Darien Hobday, Britney Reid, Brittney Hearsey and Hannah Lauridsen — with Marius Felix and Steve Cowie as coaches. Jenner Teufel, a Shawnigan Lake School grad, played the hero for the U18 Tsunami boys in their 8-7 victory over Fraser Valley East that secured the silver medal. Teufel scored the game-winning try with basically no time left. The U15 Tsunami boys had a host of

pirited competition from here, there and everywhere: Duncan Wildcats traveled in fine style to the annual Operation Trackshoes meet in Victoria. Thanks to the generous donation of bus and driver, 42 Wildcats made an exciting start at the meet. Athletes took part in many events from hurdles to high jump and 1,500-metre runs. Many personal records were set and the banquet and dance is always a highlight. A great team of running coaches ensured the competitors received additional training on Saturday mornings. Once again, Duncan earned the secondplace trophy in the adult division. Adding to the excitement was the addition of a teen group that has started training with the Wildcats. Eva Wynne expressed her gratitude to the many coaches and sponsors who make the event such a success. • North Island Tsunami rugby teams

valley talent in the lineup and “the future looks bright,’’ according to manager Kenton McNutt. Cowichan Valley players on the team included: Masaru Evans-Kimoto, Colten Smith, Connor McGarry, Logan Gilliland, Kyle Joe, Karl Mattison, Lawrence Wong, Alex Hedley, Seth Purdey, Chad Garriock, John-Henry Morten, Owen Harvey, Jake Brotherston, Taylor De Souza, Orien De Melo, Haele Ferguson, Daylon Hicks, Bailey Harlow and Liam Jones. • Junior golfers from the valley competed in provincial championships. The boys were at Revelstoke where Callum Davison finished in a tie for 20th place in the elite field with a seven-over-par 295. Davison got hot in the middle rounds with a 70 and 72 sandwiched around an opening 77 and finishing 76. Gavin Hollebakken was tied for 30th at +11 (76-75-75-73 — 299) and Mount Brenton’s Dallas Jones had a 16-over-par 304 (74-72-81-77). In the junior girls’ tournament at Langley, Mount Brenton’s Emily Adams missed the third round cut. She was at 264.

he journey toward the provincial championships has begun for the Duncan Nationals Midget AA baseball team. Manager Jim Frost’s Nationals are the hosts of that event at Evans Park Aug. 1

through 4. Before that, the team is going through a series of preparations for the big event. “This is an older version than last year’s team, with more depth that was fifth in the provincials with a 2-2 record,’’ noted Frost. “We have a team that will be very competitive and fun to watch.’’ A doubleheader Sunday at Evans Park against Campbell River kicked off the exhibition season. The Nationals swept both games 5-4 and 12-5. Strong pitching performances were turned in by Jordy Frost, Aaron Frost, Cameron Frame and Andrew Larson during the first game, as Jim Frost took a good look at how he might work the rotation during the tournament. The Nationals scored all their runs in the fourth inning. Back-to-back doubles by Alex Boos and Aaron Frost were the key hits. The defensive alignment looked strong at all the bases, with Max Winter at first, Blair Robertson at second and Reiya Tomida at third. Larson, Adam Sakuma and Zach Komst shared the pitching duties in the second game. This time, the Nationals’ offense started clicking right away in the first inning. Four runs were scored, sparked again by back-toback doubles from Frame and Larson. The Nationals put five more on the board in the fourth. Wes Smith’s double ignited the attack. Adam Fukakusa made two great catches in the outfield to save a couple of runs.

Casey Heyd Substantial improvements are being made by Casey Heyd in sprinting events compared to last year. Heyd, 15, accelerated her schedule and her pace on the track at the same time. “I’ve shaved off a second and almost a half from my 200 (metres) in just three or four months,’’ she said. Heyd’s top time in the 200 is now 26.46 seconds set during the Garriock track meet in Duncan last month and 12.68 in the 100 at the provincial high school championships in Langley. “I’m still pretty new at this track and field stuff,’’ she said. But Heyd’s taking the steps to finish at the top more frequently. “It’s a mix of between technique, eating right, staying healthy, getting strong muscles in the wintertime by going to the gym and working different muscles like your arms especially and your upper body,’’ she said. “It’s also stretching. You need flexibility and mentally a lot, too — prepping yourself and being in that state of mind before you race.’’ Steve Guille set Heyd in motion at Quamichan during her Grade 7 year and she’s been running with that experience ever since, with added coaching expertise from Crosbie Watler.

Sizzling summer July days spent in the rink Icy situation: Kerry Park bonspiel back up to 27 entries

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial


here’s always been an alternative method for beating the heat in early July as long as the Kerry Park Recreation Centre has been

around. For curlers, it’s meant flocking to the Kerry Park Curling Club’s Summerspiel. The number of entries has flip-flopped over the years but seems to be on the upswing again. “Last year, we had 22 teams,’’ said Al Brown of the organizing committee. “This year we’re at 27. We actually flirted with 30 teams at one time.’’ “There was a team came all the way up from Colorado,’’ said Wes Craig, winner of the Stormin’ Norman Enterprises A event with Pat Sanders, Roselyn Craig and Michelle Allen. “They’re here for the week now. They came up because of the summer ‘spiel.’’ The ice conditions were generally good, but a couple of rocks took some unusual sudden turns during the finals. Curlers aren’t expecting perfect conditions this time of the year anyway. Going with the flow and enjoying the camaraderie is what it’s all about. Craig’s team included a wealth of international experience. “I’ve played with all of these people,’’ he said. “Michelle travelled to Europe last time and she’s going to go with us again.’’ Craig and wife Roz started making

European trips in 2004 and have gone every two years. They include Prague on the agenda each time and then add another destination. Dave Smith, a curler with extensive experience, came second to Craig in the A event with his Victoria team that included Sandy Martin, Dennis Erickson and Betty Guild. Leslie Shearer (Brenda Ridgeway, Keith Clarke, Angela Wood) came third and Bob Pope (Sally Noonan, George Duffell, Barry Sparkes) fourth. Dennis Sutton’s rink that included Tom West, Doug Rhiel and Trish Habermelh won the Duncan Iron Works B event. Lu Neilson (Tom Sandwith, Bonnie Davies, Rob Pearce), Ken Sawyer (Terry Sawyer, Al Brown, Marg Brown) and Paul Kondal (Lori Ritchie, Terry Bompas, Ann Bompas) rounded out the top four in order. Top honours in the Island Bakery C event went to the Chester rink of Josh Hozack, Corey Chester, Carley Sandwith, Zac Capron. Second was Lorraine Gagon with Rhonda Stoner, Eric Service and skip Graeme Service followed in third by the Berg rink of Tyler Jones, Merit Thorson, Trystyn Berg and Chelsea Spengler and the Lidstone rink in fourth place. Mike Angrove’s rink topped the Malahat Lions Club D event over runners-up Garry Franklyn, Glen Kennedy, Karen Rajala and Marion Borrow. The Erickson and Fornelli rinks secured the third and fourth spots, respectively.

Superhuman effort made by Point during the Vancouver Marathon There was a Superman sighting during the Vancouver Marathon. The Man of Steel’s presence created all sorts of excitement, courtesy of another of valley resident Justin Point’s amazing costume creations. He’s appeared at major events before as famous personalities, including Elvis Presley that made people think the King of Rock ‘N’ Roll was indeed still alive and well.

“It was a long, very long day to run as temperatures exceeded 80 degrees (Fahrenheit),’’ noted Point of the experience in May. “The route, near the tail end of the run meanders alongside the ocean close to Stanley Park. I thought I would cool down, but it only got worse. “I was happy to finish and, of course, glad to make a few people laugh and smile.’’

Adversity doesn’t bother the Midget A1 Thunder Up for the challenge: Call-ups come in handy, as Cowichan lacrosse squad keeps pushing forward Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial


ew teams can overcome constant lineup shuffling and still succeed like the Cowichan Valley Midget A1 Thunder lacrosse team. The Thunder’s personnel continued to dwindle through injuries and player absences, but call-ups in the system helped save the day and keep the team on track toward the island championship. The Thunder completed the comeback from a game down Friday at Kerry Park Arena to take the deciding game in its semifinal series against Saanich 8-4. “We just knew we had to step it up,’’ said the Thunder’s Chris Branting. “We didn’t have a very good first game.’’ A foot injury had Branting reduced to power-play duty. “From game two, they had two of their strong players suspended that certainly benefited our team, not discrediting that we played well,’’ said Thunder coach Lorne Winship. The Thunder lost the first game in the series and then went to Calgary for a tournament before returning and evening the series to set the stage for Friday’s deciding triumph. “It’s on your mind for a week,’’ said Winship of leaving in the middle of the series. James Taylor was summoned from Midget B and Colton Lidstone and Brayden Zunti from Bantam A to help fill some gaps for the team. “They’re going to continue to stay with us,’’ said Winship. “Our numbers are pretty low.’’ The Thunder had only 11 regular runners. Braylon Lumb got the scoring started for the Thunder with the first two goals on assists from Mathieu Jung and Derek Hayes. Taylor then tallied from Colin Winship and Tyson Black scored late in the second period on assists from Winship and Brandon Corby.

In the third period, Taylor Martin got into the act with a pair of goals with assists to Lumb and Black on the first one and goalie Pollo Claxton on the second. Corby wrapped things up with the last two goals, with Hayes and Martin picking up assists. The Thunder went right into the best-of-three final against Juan de Fuca Sunday morning and took the first game by the same 8-4 score. “After (Sunday), we’ve beat them four times,’’ said Branting. “They’ve beat us twice. That’s including tournaments.’’ The Thunder held period leads of 2-1 and 5-2, but Juan de Fuca cut it to 5-4 at one point with two power play markers before Cowichan took charge again with the last three straight goals. “We just kind of carried on and played real solid defence,’’ said coach Winship after the score got close. Zunti and Winship scored in the first period on assists by Black and Jung, respectively. Jung clicked from Lumb and Corby, Lumb added another from Black and Corby, and Jung and Lumb played setup men for the third Thunder goal of the second period by Corby. Martin and Corby notched unassisted goals in the third period. The final goal by Steven Robertson came on an assist from Martin. “We’ve had very close games against them — the most heated rivalry I’ve ever experienced,’’ said Lorne Winship. The Thunder had a chance to finish off Juan de Fuca Tuesday at Cowichan Arena. The winner of the series advances to the provincial playoffs in Port Coquitlam at the end of the month and the loser goes into a sudden-death wild card game against the fourth-place Mainland team. The Thunder was going to be without Jung and Lumb for game two. They’re in California for field lacrosse. “Juan de Fuca also has a couple of players at this field lacrosse event,’’ Winship said, that will help balance the scales.

It’s been a busy stretch of games for the Cowichan Valley Midget A1 Thunder. “Up to (Sunday), we’ve played eight games in nine days,’’ said coach Lorne Winship. Action from Friday’s deciding island semifinal game, above, includes: Derek Hayes of Cowichan spinning to avoid contact from Wilson Gurney and Cole Christiaens of Saanich and, left, Tyler Glanfield of Cowichan looking to make a long pass under pressure from Luke Violini of Saanich. Cowichan won 8-4 and opened the island final with a victory over Juan de Fuca by the same score.

Last teams standing: One more game needed to decide the island title

owichan Valley’s Bantam B Thunder lacrosse team is on the run toward the island championship but has already secured its place in the provincials. The series began with eight teams and is now down to two. The Thunder started against Victoria-Esquimalt and won both games. The Thunder then met Port Alberni in a neutral site game at Frank Crane Arena in

Nanaimo and prevailed 7-6 in a tough battle. Liam Joe scored the Thunder’s lone goal in the first period. Joe added another in the third to complement a pair from Gavin Spencer and singles by Brayden Grantham, Seth Negaard and Caleb Nordstrom. The second game in Nanaimo against Alberni went in the books as a 5-3 Thunder win. A hat trick by Spencer led the way while Grantham and Parker Teufel contributed singles.


That left the Thunder and the Comox Valley Wild in the hunt with provincial berths already locked up. The Thunder went to Comox Saturday for the first game of the island championship and lost 7-3. Thunder goals were by Will Wright, Grantham and Clayton Raphael. Assists were credited to Nordstrom and goalie Zander Cozine. The rematch Sunday at the Island Savings

Centre in Duncan saw the Thunder even the series with a 9-5 victory. The scoring was spread throughout the lineup, with Raphael and Teufel playing the lead role with two goals apiece. Nathan Clark, Grantham, Joe, Negaard and Michael Shepherd were the other marksmen. Assists went to Sam Baxter, Wright, Teufel, Dawson Bittner, Rhys Mazurenko and Shepherd. The Thunder is still awaiting word on when the third and deciding game for the island championship will be played.
