KITIMAT - The Department of Fisheries and Oceans has been invited to talk to Kitimat Council, to discuss the waste left behind by riverbank campers, as well as the increased usage of the riverbank during construction projects. The motion was put forward by Mary Murphy, who sits on the Leisure Services Committee, and said comments and questions on
this issue were being brought to them. “There were citizens that were raising concerns about it,” said Murphy. She remembers seeing the riverbank completely packed with people in years past which isn’t the case so much anymore, she said, but she knows there are many people setting up campers and tents along the river today. Ideas heard at the committee include gating off access to the riverbank, which Murphy knows

Surrendered guns included an antique By Margaret Speirs

A new mural has appeared on the old Skeena Bridge that spans the Skeena at Terrace.
New mural makes appearance on bridge located in Terrace By Josh Massey
The Northern connector
TERRACE - Another large mural has come into being on the south shore of the Skeena river in Terrace. Apparently created by the same artist responsible for the notorious Enbridge Valdez mural spotted under the old Skeena bridge in April, this new piece is located about 600 metres west of that one under the south section
of the George Little bridge off Queen Elizabeth Dr. Created slowly over the past few of spring and into summer, this work is even larger, and shows the same grandeur of concept and breadth of canvas, perhaps even larger than the Enbridge Valdez at about 12 ft. high and 18 ft. wide. The Valdez mural drew widespread attention. The new mural features a less
political and perhaps more spiritual message, blending eastern mysticism, nature highlight and First Nations symbols that rest harmoniously within the natural surroundings. The artist(s) do not appear to identify themselves on the murals. Their elusive work habits and penchant for high-profile, anonymous artistic hijinks call to mind the famous England-based graffiti artist Banksy.
TERRACE - More guns were turned over to the police during the first half of the month-long gun amnesty last month than in the last two years. As of June 30, the Terrace RCMP received 17 firearms, three prohibited handguns, five restricted handguns, six unrestricted long guns, one antique and two air guns, according to Const. Angela Rabut. “We’re happy about the numbers that came in,” she said, noting people are still encouraged to call police to pick up unwanted firearms or ammunition. In 2012, three guns were turned into the detachment and 17 guns were destroyed. The latter number includes those seized or, for instance, ordered forfeited through court action. In 2011, five guns were turned in and 13 in all were destroyed. Provided the weapon
being turned in wasn’t used during the commission of a crime, police didn’t take any action against the person surrendering the weapon. An antique Colt 1851 Navy 36 revolver was one of the guns turned in. Rabut said even antiques are destroyed, which, she said, at times is “heartbreaking.” The advantage of the amnesty is that, pend-
ing a check to determine if the weapon may have been used during a crime, there are no questions asked. Without the amnesty, people could turn in weapons but it is up to the discretion of the police to determine if further action might be taken. Weapons turned in this year included a Ruger Mark 2 Target .22 (restricted gun), Smith and a Wesson 34-1 .22 revolver (prohibited).

Drilling begins for Northwest LNG on Lelu Island By Shaun Thomas THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - Drilling is taking place on and around Lelu Island as Pacific Northwest LNG continues pushing ahead with work on its proposed export terminal. Tessa Gill, manager of stakeholder relations for Pacific Northwest LNG, said the drilling is an import part of the environmental assessment for the planned $11-billion terminal. “On land we have to determine if the island itself is feasible for construc-
tion or if the construction plan, though preliminary, is a feasible one ... We were very careful to look at the seabed before we started drilling because we didn’t want to disturb anything, but the offshore drilling will determine the construction and best location for the tressle and jetty,” she said, adding the company is working with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to enTessa Gill sure drilling is carried out in an environmentally safe manner. “All of the data we gather here will aid in future engineering work for the
“All of the data we gather here will aid in future engineering work for the project,”
Drilling began late last month with the arrival of the jack-up rigs and is expected to last until the end of July. While the near-shore rig will be moved by barge and take place around the clock seven days a week, the on-shore drilling will only take place during daylight hours and is more complicated to move around. “There may be some helicopter work people in Port Edward. Lelu Island isn’t cleared so the rig can only be moved by helicopter for the duration of the drilling,” said Gill.

Kitimat police tend to a fake bomb at mall KITIMAT - Kitimat police responded to a call of a possible bomb at the entrance to the Upper City Centre Mall parking lot on July 5 at around 7:30 a.m. Staff sergeant Phil Harrison said he and other police officers arrived and blocked off the area, and found a red container. “It was a red cardboard box, although it was painted up and looked like a metal box, with wires leading to a battery pack,” he said. Pictures were taken from a short distance away and sent to the RCMP bomb unit based in Vancouver, who were initially set to come to Kitimat, but Harrison said he managed a closer look and saw it was clearly a fake. “Upon closer inspection, it be-
came obvious it was a fake bomb, not a real one,” he said. “So [the bomb unit] was called off and the fake bomb was hauled away and disposed of.” He said one side of the package was open with a loose panel which he was able to see into, where he noticed there were no explosives. He said local RCMP detachments don’t have any bomb disposal equipment which is why a bomb unit from Vancouver has to be called in for such occasions. So far they don’t have any motive for the threat, except for possibly someone looking for their 15 minutes of fame, said Harrison. The initial call regarding the bomb was not from anyone involved in this incident, he added. “It was called in by a passer-by. Somebody going to Timmy’s for their morning run and noticed it.”
In the very early hours of June 30, another fire ripped apart a cabin and a two storey structure at the former Aluminum City Motel. It is the second fire on the property in the past three months, the first which destroyed one of the motel’s former cabins on April 2. Staff Sergeant Phil Harrison says the RCMP is suspecting arson as the reason for the blaze, due to the fact no gas or electricity services the old motel.
He said the investigation is continuing and that they have no suspects as yet. Fire Chief Trent Bossence said at 2:30 a.m. that morning eight firefighters responded to the fire with one engine and a ladder truck, and they found the two structures fully engulfed in flame. With the fire as bad as it was they decided to let the smaller building burn and focus on the main building.

Book presentation made to Terrace brain injury group The Northern connector
TERRACE - A local advocate for brain injury awareness has donated a book to the Terrace Brain Injury Survivor Support Group. “Concussed!” was written by retired Philadelphia Flyers captain Keith Primeau and Keith Goulet, who played hockey in Germany for 10 years. It’s about sports-related head injuries and contains their own stories as well as stories about other people, says Yvonne Nielsen who made the presentation. She’s calling it a must read book for anyone involved in any level of any kind of sport including soccer, football, baseball, basketball. There’s advice on avoiding concussions, what to do if you have one and what you should not do if you have one. Nielsen points out that concussions may not be at first obvious to a person who has suffered one or to those observing. That’s why it’s important for observers to keep watch if an injured person exhibits headaches, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, irritability, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, light or noise sensitivity or vision problems. Nielsen, who herself suffered a brain injury in a car accident 25 years ago, has made a number of book donations locally to groups as well as to the Terrace Public Library. staff photographer / the NORTHERN CONNECTOR She’s also made presentations to city council and to visiting govern- JOHN BRINKAC, a member of the Terrace Brain Injury Survivor Support Group, accepts a book on concussions by local brain injury ment officials. awareness advocate Yvonne Nielsen.

Longtime Prince Rupert business plans to close its doors By Martina Perry The Northern connector
PRINCE RUPERT - A deep-rooted Prince Rupert business will be closing shop after nearly 70 years of operation. Signs advertising a closing-down sale were put up in the windows of Manson’s Jewellers last week, with the store’s owners planning to end operations in a number of months. “We’ll miss the people. The customers are just like family, they’ve come in for so many years. We have so many
loyal customers,” said Valerie Blackstone, who owns Manson’s along with sister Vanny Palibroda and husband Jim Blackstone. Al and Bea Manson opened Manson’s Jewellers in Prince Rupert in 1945, with the store originally being located on Fourth Street. The business has been in its current location for about 50 years. The couple had three children, Blackstone, Vanny Palibroda and Alan Manson, who all worked in the store at some point. Both Palibroda and Blackstone started working part-
time in their father’s store when they were in high school, moving up to full-time after graduation. “[The store] has been a really big part of our lives,” Valerie said. Palibroda and the Blackstones had been discussing the idea of retiring and closing down the store for a number of years. After the passing of Alan last November, they decided it was time. “It hits home when you lose a loved one like that, especially when they’re younger than you. It makes you think about what’s important in life. It’s all about fam-

Valeria Blackstone, Jim Blackstone and Vanny Palibroda have decided to close down Manson’s Jewellers and retire.
ily ... you can only work for so long,” Valerie said. The Blackstone’s children all live in the Kelowna and Vancouver area, as well as their grandchildren. The couple is planning on moving down south to be closer to family in the future. “It’s time to go and enjoy life ... it’s a new chapter,” Jim said. Jim said he really enjoys being a goldsmith and appraiser at Manson’s, but what he’ll miss most is the people. Valerie and Palibroda agree the hardest part will be saying goodbye to their customers. “I’ve been here so long, since I was about 16. You see the same people all the time. It’s really personal selling jewelry. You sell people an engagement ring, a wedding ring, then their baby gifts. You help them buy a gift for their first anniversary, then all of a sudden a special gift for their 25th anniversary,” said Palibroda, who is unsure of whether she will stay in Prince Rupert or not at this time. Manson’s Jewellers had as many as 12 employees in the past, and currently employs six staff including the Blackstones and Palibroda.
Canada Post service is changing By Shaun Thomas The Northern connector
PRINCE RUPERT - How Canada Post service is offered in Prince Rupert is changing. The outlet location at 7-11 will be closing effective July 17, but Canada Post spokesperson John Caines said the second location isn’t closing entirely. “They (7-11) decided they no longer wanted to be a postal franchise. We will be moving the service to Shopper’s Drug Mart in the Rupert Square Mall,” he explained. “Shopper’s Drug Mart won’t open with full service at first, but the post office boxes for general delivery will be available right away and they will be selling stamps ... Once it gets ramped up, Shopper’s Drug Mart will be a full service location.” Caines said 7-11 made Canada Post aware of the decision to cease postal service months ago, but a second location needed to be confirmed before the closure moved ahead. “We just needed to get everything worked out with Shopper’s, which took a little longer than we expected,” he said. “We certainly plan to continue offering an outlet service as well as our corporate outlet on Third Avenue.” The manager of the Prince Rupert 7-11 was not immediately available for comment.

TERRACE - The Rotary Club of Terrace ended its year with a changing of the guard that emphasized its dedication to improving the quality of life in Terrace and around the world. “This year’s theme is ‘Engage Rotary, Change Lives’ and I absolutely believe it to be true. It’s amazing what can be accomplished when a group of people come together to help people in need,” said Kristine Kofoed, newly installed president. Applauded for leading the club over the past year were outgoing officers Lyle Harvey, President; John Crawford, Secretary; Manuela Krisinger, Treasurer; John Heighington, Past President; Directors Marg Anderson, Chris Cain, Tony deViveiros, Janet MacKenzie and Kofoed. Former President Lyle Harvey recounted the club’s successes over the last year, including the funding of a new international project. “Not only is our club changing lives here in Terrace but we’re also making an impact in Comitancillio, Guatemala, by funding the salary of a native speaking nurse at a medical clinic through an aid organization called Alianza. This nurse will provide care to hundreds of families and children and improve the quality of life for people living in one of the poorest
provinces of Guatemala.” The installation and awards banquet also provided the opportunity for recognition of individuals who distinguished themselves during the past year. David Oatway was presented the prestigious Paul Harris Fellow award and Tony deViveiros was awarded Rotarian of the Year. Last year, the Rotary Club of Terrace raised over $60,000 through its two major fundraisers – the Great Duck Race held during River Boat Days and the Rotary Auction held every fall. Money raised helps fund community programs and projects like the Heritage Park Museum’s Kids Culture Camp, Kalum Community School Society and restoration of the Thornhill Mountain Lookout.

Four receive graduate scholarships
The Northern connector
TERRACE - Four Coast Mountains school district Grade 12 graduates are receiving trades scholarships thanks to one of the companies wishing to build a liquefied natural gas plant in the area. The scholarships are worth $5,000 each and are financed by Shell which, with partners, wants to build a natural gas pipeline from northeastern BC to a liquefied natural gas plant at Kitimat. The impetus for the scholarships came at a trades development conference in Terrace in the spring. BC Hydro at the conference announced it

WILLIAM KALDENHOVEN was committing four scholarships of $5,000 each and challenged others to do the same. From Caledonia Secondary School in Terrace, Ethan Anderson
has enrolled at BCIT to pursue his career with future plans to study Aircraft Maintenance Engineering at Northern Lights College. William Kaldenhoven from Mount Eliz-
abeth Middle/Secondary School in Kitimat wants to become a millwright. Michael Spooner has a career in carpentry planned. The graduate of Hazelton Secondary School will be attend-
ing the College of New Caledonia. Ben Williams is also from Hazelton Secondary. He’s enrolled in the Professional Cook 1 program at Northwest Community College.
JOHN HORGAN es drop, fewer companies will develop mines and that will reduce the line’s customer pool, said Horgan. “It will then fall to ratepayers,” he said of cost recovery. A BC Hydro workshop late last year, when the price tag was $561 million, laid out the crown corporation’s cost recovery plan. BC Hydro is defraying its costs through a $130 million commitment from the federal government and a $180 million deal with Calgary energy-producer AltaGas. AltaGas is building three run of river projects in the area and its $180 million deal provides access to the provincial power grid via the transmission line. The company is putting in $90 million upfront and spreading the remainder through the next decades. At last year’s price tag of $561 million, BC Hydro needed to charge companies $251 million to break even once the federal government and AltaGas monies were
location and in a deal reached this spring with BC Hydro, an Imperial subsidiary will build a 287kv line 93km north of Bob Quinn to Tatogga Lake on Hwy37 and then a smaller line east to the mine site. BC Hydro will then pay a flat fee of $52 million to gain access to the line as far as Tatogga. The Imperial subsidiary is responsible for any line construction costs above that flat fee. BC Hydro officials say this arrangement meets the needs of itself and of Imperial and that the flat fee is a good deal for the crown corporation. BC Hydro describes this line – and its cost – as separate from the Northwest Transmission Line and is calling it the Iskut extension. That’s a crucial distinction because it relates to the $130 million commitment from the federal government which BC Hydro is using to subsidize the Northwest Transmission
Line. That money comes from the federal Green Infrastructure Fund and was provided to take the tiny community of Iskut and surrounding area off of diesel powered generators. To receive the $130 million, BC Hydro made a commitment to extend power to Iskut a year after the Northwest Transmission Line was completed. But Iskut is still north yet of Tatogga Lake and BC Hydro estimates it will take an additional $5 million to run a small distribution line 16km to the tiny community. BC Hydro is also paying for the work at what will be the Tatogga substation so it can build the line north to Iskut. Taken together, the NDP’s Horgan says the combined cost of the Northwest Transmission Line and the extension north, when completely finished next year, can easily hit the $1 billion level.

TERRACE - Provincial NDP energy critic John Horgan says he has a hard time believing the BC Liberal government didn’t know the cost of BC Hydro’s Northwest Transmission Line had soared during the lead up to the May provincial election. The 344km line, which will run power from BC Hydro’s Skeena Substation near Terrace up Hwy37 North, was pegged at $404 million when first conceived more than six years ago but costs have risen steadily since. Last year BC Hydro marked the cost at $561 million, increasing that figure to $617 million in the spring before the election only to revise the cost to $736 million last month. “To be honest, his answers were a day late and a dollar short,” said Horgan of energy minister Bill Bennett’s defence of the cost increase in the provincial legislature. “To say he didn’t see this coming is pretty rich,” Horgan added. While Bennett has promised to find out the reasons for the cost increase, Horgan said the province has to now consider how the new cost figure will affect companies with promising mineral properties who want to take power from the line. And he’s worried BC Hydro might not be able to recover all of its new costs from industrial users in the area. Should mineral pric-
deducted. But with a new price tag of $736 million, the crown corporation now needs $426 million. BC Hydro’s plan is to charge companies based on how much of the line’s capacity they will use. The crown corporation’s engineers have pegged the line’s capacity at 375 megawatts so, for example, if a company signs up for 25 per cent of that capacity (roughly 100 megawatts), it will pay 25 per cent of the line’s construction costs or just under $110 million. Companies will still have to pay for the actual power they use as is the case with any other BC Hydro customer. BC Hydro so far has one power-buying customer – Imperial Metals which is building the copper/gold Red Chris mine north of Bob Quinn, the end point for the Northwest Transmission Line. Imperial still needs a line to its Red Chris

Nanaimo artist Jeff King working on McBride St. mural By Martina Perry The Northern connector
PRINCE RUPERT - Paint Prince Rupert organizer Glen Saunders is proving a little bit of paint goes a long way. Paint Prince Rupert’s most recent project is now underway, with Nanaimo artist Jeff King creating his sixth wildlifebased mural on McBride Street. “I really enjoy being here. People are so friendly. It’s a beautiful community,” King said. Saunders said the newest mural is a continuation of the Paint Prince Rupert program aiming to beautify the city. “It’s always been a colourful town, we’re just adding a little bit of dimension to it,” he said. Paint Prince Rupert began rejuvenating Prince Rupert buildings in need of a face-lift including the RCMP detachment, Fairview Restaurant, King Coin, the Moose Hall and 28 other buildings in the community. The group then came up with the mural concept, with the first being on Johnny’s Machine Shop. “It became such a hit that I thought we should continue with it,” Saunders said. Today, King’s murals are on the Moby Dick Inn, Pacific Inn, the Crest Hotel and Rona. “There’s getting to be enough of them that there’s a theme. Each mural is so different,” Saunders said. King’s most recent design consists of three wolves on a rocky landscape, with an abundance of trees surrounding snow-filled mountains. One of the wolves is pictured
howling at the glowing moon in a purple night sky. After painting the base, King begins his murals by projecting the image’s outlines on the walls to ensure the sizing is right. King and his assistant, Melissa White, began outlining the wolves last week, with Paint Prince Rupert volunteer Sharon Rothwell and Saunders lending a hand and city worker Tim Todd handling the safety and traffic aspect of the projection. “It’s not just [done by me]. I can do this part but there’s a lot more to it behind the scenes,” King said. After completing outlines, King uses spray guns, car sprayers, airless sprayers and touch-up guns to bring his designs to life, finishing the backgrounds without any outlining. “It’s fun to see how he builds the layers, and it just keeps getting better,” Saunders said. The McBride mural is King’s first time painting wolves, which he said is more challenging than previous pieces. King said he cannot pinpoint exactly when he will be done, but gave a rough estimation of two weeks on July 5. While Paint Prince Rupert is responsible for organizing the new mural, Saunders said Ridley Terminals Inc.’s Michelle Bryant stepped up to the plate and got Prince Rupert Grain and Northern Savings Credit Union on board to fund the mural. Ridley Terminals and Prince Rupert Grain both donated $5,000 for the project, with Northern Savings handing over $1,000. The Rupert Square Mall also helped out by donating the lift for the mural. Following the completion of the McBride mural, King will begin work on another piece

Artist Jeff King works on the McBride Street mural. on the Moby Dick Inn. Saunders said Paint Prince Rupert has pitched a number of additional murals, but at this time none are certain. King began painting murals in 1990, estimating he’s completed more than 100. “The best thing to do when you’re an
artist is get noticed. How do you get noticed? Make big statements. If you paint a big canvass everybody notices,” King said. Anyone wanting to make a donation to Paint Prince Rupert can do so through the Prince Rupert Foundation.

Herman Hendrik Onstein April 1st, 1937 – May 25th 2013
Herman was born in the Netherlands, the youngest of 5 children; 3 brothers, Bill, Joe, and Theo and a sister Hanny. He immigrated to Canada when he was a quiet and shy lad of 17. Hard work and good fortune enabled him to become a successful businessman. In 1966 he married Sheri and soon was the proud father of 4 children, Robert, Rebecca, Roderick and Rachel. In time his children gave him 16 wonderful grandchildren. He was extremely proud of his family, and was a terrific father and grandfather. After a long hard struggle, Herman left peacefully with his wife and four children at his bedside. Herman was well loved by his family and his passing leaves much sadness. His friendly manner, his big smile and his warm hugs will be missed by anyone who knew him Our family is grateful that Herman’s long time friend, Bishop Gerry Wiesner OMI was able to preside at his funeral. We also offer sincere thanks to all the doctors, nurses, other care givers and friends, who over the many years cared for Herman at home, at Mills Memorial, St Paul’s, the Cancer Clinic and Vancouver General.

Dorothy Barbra Spiller (nee Trail) June 18,1921-July 6, 2012
It is with great sadness we announce our beloved Mother (of 4), Grandmother (of 13), Great Grandmother (of 16), GreatGreat Grandmother (of 1), Aunt, & friend to many, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of July 6, 2013 at Acropolis Manor in Prince Rupert at the age of 92. She had recently enjoyed many extra visits, hugs & love. Predeceased by her sister Cecilia, her husband & nephew Christopher in June 1974, killed in a plane crash. A passionate writer her entire life, she enjoyed many published works of poetry & short stories after her retirement from a long career with the Federal Government for Indian Affairs. Born in Calgary, Alberta, her family moved when she was a small child to Vancouver, BC & that is where she met her future sister-in-law Joy, in a writing class & introduced her to her brother Roderick Trail (passed away April 5, 1997) who quickly married her! It is also where she met her husband, Fredrick Spiller, who fathered her five boys, the fifth who died during childbirth due to placenta previa. She was predeceased by Fred in 1983. They eventually moved to Port Edward, Shearwater then settled in Rupert where her boys went to school & grew up. She worked for Indian Affairs there & eventually in Terrace where she retired & began her planned move to Tow Hill Rd, Masset on Haida Gwaii. She enjoyed around 20 yrs there writing, beach combing & attending St Paul's Anglican Church before moving back to Prince Rupert in 2006. She will be deeply missed by her family & friends. We would like to thank the staff at Acropolis for their care the past few years. Everyone who knew her is invited to please attend a service in memory of Dorothy at Cathedral Church of St Andrew, Anglican Church, 200 4th Ave West, Prince Rupert on Friday July 12 at 3PM, reception to follow. We have decided to let her ashes blow in the wind & back to the earth at "her" beach on Haida Gwaii at a later date. In lieu of a headstone at the graveyard, we will enjoy a brick at memorial park on the wall for "Those who lived by and loved the sea".

Northern Canucks’ stunning move: Luongo stays By Bruce Penton THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
If Vancouver Canucks could somehow put that gigantic contract of Roberto Luongo’s between the pipes next season, new coach John Tortorella’s team might never give up a goal. Unfortunately, the massive 12-year contract extension he signed in 2009 sits in a file cabinet in the Canucks’ front office while Luongo tries to fill the space between the pipes and pretend he’s happy. If the Canucks and Luongo were a married couple, they’d have separate bedrooms. How does Luongo feel, knowing he will be the starting goalie next year for the Canucks after realizing his contract made him untradeable last year after the Ca-
nucks publicly tried and tried and tried to get rid of him? In fact, former backup Cory Schneider appeared to be so secure in his No. 1 role in the Canucks net that when Vancouver fans put together their list of ‘untouchables’, they started with Daniel and Henrik Sedin and then listed Schneider. But in one of the strangest turns of events during the NHL draft on June 30, the Canucks traded Schneider to New Jersey, giving up their 27-year-old goalie of the future and keeping the 34-year-old Luongo. One of them had to go: Ultimately, it was Schneider, because Luongo’s contract was like a huge anchor tying him to the Lower Mainland. No other NHL team would agree to take on
the nine years and about $40 million that remains on the contract signed four years ago by Luongo, whose skills are in rapid decline. In exchange for Schneider, the Canucks received a first-round draft pick that became Bo Horvat, an Ontario junior leaguer from London. (An-
other Vancouver firstrounder was Medicine Hat’s Hunter Shinkaruk.) Poor Schneider. He spent two years as backup to Luongo and now returns to a No. 2 role behind certain Hall of Famer Martin Brodeur in New Jersey. The Schneider trade was a continuation of the Gillis Follies, a series of questionable moves by general manager Mike Gillis, the object of scorn by many Canucks’ fans. Meanwhile, if Luongo can somehow use that contract as goalpad stuffing, it may work out for Vancouver after all. • Janice Hough of leftcoastsportsbabe. com: “Cleveland rookie linebacker Ausar Walcott was arrested Tuesday and charged with attempted murder after
he allegedly punched a man in the head last weekend. Gosh, the Browns can’t even get the major headlines on the NFL police blotter.” • Cam Hutchinson of the Saskatoon Express: “I don’t believe it.

THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - The Prince Rupert Seamen Rugby Club started the 2013 Northern Rugby League season against the Terrace Northmen on July 6, but it wasn’t a weekend to remember for the team, as they lost 36-0. “We lost badly. We competed hard and we played our best, but ultimately we weren’t able to match Terrace,” said George Baker, who noted the Northmen are always a challenge to play. “They’re playing Division II rugby and we’re just not at that level. They are always competitive, have a good shot at provincials this year and consistently get 30 players out for practice where we don’t have those numbers.” Next up for Prince Rupert will be another trip to Terrace to compete in the Riverboat Days 7s Tournament, which includes seven players per side taking to the pitch as opposed to the usual 15. “We’ll be sending one team for sure, and we may be sending two ... we came in second last year and have a good chance to win it this year,” said Baker. “We would like to see as many Prince RuCONTRIBUTED / THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
PRINCE RUPERT - Prince Rupert’s Justin McChesney, who spent last season with the Rainmakers, has a busy month ahead competing as a member of the B.C. 15 and Under Provincial Team. McChesney, standing at 6’8”, competed last weekend in Lynden Washington, will travel to Seattle this weekend, play in Las Vegas the following weekend and will vie for the national championship from Aug. 4 – 11 in St. John’s Newfoundland.
Changes coming to CIHL include 4-on-4 overtime By Shaun Thomas
THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
TERRACE - When the Terrace River Kings take to the ice this fall, the league will be much different than when the final whistle blew at the end of last season. The Omenica Ice of Vanderhoof are no longer a part of the Central Interior Hockey League. The team, which finished with a 6-10-2 record but struggled with icing enough players, told CIHL of its intention to fold during the annual general meeting in Smithers. The departure of the Ice, however, is offset by the return of a familiar foe. “The Hazelton Wolverines met the deadline and have provided all of the necessary credentials and documentation. They will be playing next season,” said CIHL president Ray Hallock of the team that folded at the end of the 2012 season. “This is good news for the league ... the return of the Wolverines makes the existing east/west split continue to work for scheduling.” As for the product on the ice, the execu-
tive voted to do away with the automatic shootout in the event of a tie. By a unanimous vote of executive and player reps, games that end in a tie during regulation time will enter a five-minute, 4-on-4 overtime period before proceeding to the shootout. “It was something that a player from Kitimat brought forward and something everyone agreed with. From a player perspective, going straight from regulation to a shoot-out isn’t the best way to go, so we’re looking forward to giving the fans that extra entertainment,” said Derek Baker, Prince Rupert Rampage defenceman. And while River Kings coach Roger Tooms says both tie-breaker methods are exciting for fans, he’s partial to 4-on-4. “Four-on-four is typically a faster game that leads to a number of good opportunities and my preferred method,” he said. The 2013/2014 season will include an 18 game schedule with three divisions. The west includes Prince Rupert, Terrace and Kitimat; the central includes Hazelton, Smithers and Houston; and the east includes Quesnel, Williams Lake and Lac La Hache.
pert people in Terrace as possible on Saturday to cheer on the team. We play hard and work hard to represent Prince Rupert, and it would be great to see some support at the tournament.” The Seamen this year are made up of players from Prince Rupert and Smithers. As for the Northmen, tries were scored by Arlen Fifield (2), Jordy DaCosta (2), Chance Healey, and Tyson Stoochnoff, with Stoochnoff and Don Hill named man of the matches. The team is heading on a road trip to Prince George and Williams Lake this weekend, playing Prince George Friday night and Williams Lake Saturday. With the win against Rupert, they’re at 2-0-1 for the season – and if they win both games on the road, the team qualifies for provincials. The Northern Rugby League is made up of the Prince George Gnats, the Williams Lake Rustlers, the mixed Prince Rupert/ Smithers Seamen, and the Terrace Northmen. League play consists of all of the teams playing one home and one away game against each other and the best record will represent the North at the Saratoga Cup, Division 3 Provincials in Penticton this September.
Marlins make finals Contributed
THE NORTHERN CONNECTOR
KITIMAT - The Kitimat Marlins Swim Club had four swimmers attend the 2013 Swim BC Long Course (50 meter) AA Championships in Victoria recently. There were 350 swimmers from around B.C. and the Yukon in attendance. To attend swimmers needed to achieve a minimum of one AA Provincial qualifying time and not yet achieve the higher AAA Provincial qualifying times in any of their races. This made for some extremely close fun swim racing for all involved. All the Marlins swimmers had some excellent results with all four swimmers achieving the tough task of making finals (top eight finish). Gabriel Lamarre (11) competing in the 11 and under boys category swam to 100 per cent personal best times in all five of his races and became the AA Provincial Champion in the 400 meter Individual Medley with a super tight race that saw gold and silver decided by 6/100th of a second and gold through bronze decided by 1/2 a second. Lamarre also placed 4th in the 100 meter breaststroke, 5th in the 200 breast and 8th in the 100 backstroke. Ethan Velho (12) competing in the 12 year old boys category swam to 100 per cent personal best times in all five of his races. Velho made the finals in the 100 and 200 breast finishing 5th in both events and 6th in the 200 IM. Raychel Davies (13) competing in the 13 year old girls category swam to 100 per cent
