Auditor the answer for salary swell?

CVRD: Director wants information after double-digit wage hikes Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

A

provincial audit of wages and raises being paid to Cowichan’s top bureaucrats may be ordered by month’s end, a regional director explained. Ian Morrison believed most directors read his recent letter of shock about brass remuneration hikes — averaging 11 1/2 % — and his call for a municipal audit about salaries topping $75,000 a year. “I suggest most of the board read my article, and have that on their mind; (the audit request) seems to be a good fit.” How good a fit was foggy as Cowichan Valley Regional District Ian Morrison: senior staff explained their raises in a private suggests auditor session Wednesday. Morrison, the director for Cowichan Lake South/Skutz Falls, stressed he’s bound by privacy rules governing the closed, 45-minute salary huddle between the board and its senior non-union staff. But his public letter calls for the municipal auditor to do a performance audit on CVRD finances and operations. The auditor’s role, he states, is giving local governments objective information and advice for community accountability about stewardship of public assets, and reaching story, stucco home with attached garage.

Cowichan school support staff poised to join provincial job action

UP FRONT

Cowichan’s unionized education workers are poised to strike, CUPE officials announced Wednesday. Strike-vote results by the Canadian Union of Public Employees were about 85% in favour. Wages appeared to be the rub among CUPEmember education assistants, clerical staff, trades, Aboriginal workers, youth and family

workers, custodians, and bus drivers, the union’s release explains. “Going without a wage increase since 2009, CUPE education workers remain hopeful for funded settlements that would see similar agreements as were achieved for other public-sector employees,” it says. CUPE’s 27,000 education workers voted to

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial 3

strike in almost all of its 57 kindergarten to Grade 12 locals, involving 53 school districts. Cowichan Local 606 supported that mandate, a decision that affects about 300 valley workers. The union’s priority is a settlement this summer to avoid job action when students return to school in the fall, CUPE’s Bill Pegler said.

Mob ready for second food flash July 20: Momentum growing to fill local food bank’s shelves

he first Flash Feed mob event to stock the Cowichan Basket Society’s dwindling shelves was such a success it’s going to be repeated. Chef Fatima da Silva spearheaded the first one and has received some additional support from Cowichan Valley regional District Director Loren Duncan. Mary Ann Watson of the Cowichan Chefs’ Table said Duncan is “challenging all local politicians to fill the cupboard at the food bank.’’ Area C Director Gerry Giles has jumped on board with assistance for the Mill Bay Food Bank and North Cowichan Councillor Al Siebring has pledged to make a personal contribution for the basket society and to encourage North Cowichan council to match his efforts. Director Duncan has volunteered to pay the rent from Area E taxpayers at the Island Savings Centre for a Flash feed mob on July 20. He’s challenged all other local directors and councillors to fill the cupboard. Duncan and Island Savings Commission members were approached by da Silva of Bistro 161

Alson McKenzie helps load groceries during the last Flash Feed Mob, June 24. and Vinoteca at Zanatta to support an event and raise funds and food donations for the Cowichan Basket Society. Da Silva took action to address the dire need of local food banks, forging the idea after realizing a big $1 sale at Thrifty Foods would go a long way to encourage people to support the cause and the first Flash Feed mob took on a life of its own. Three vans were filled with dry goods, frozen foods and produce and many cash donations were made as well.

All of Cowichan will be asked to make a pledge and challenge peers for the next Flash Feed mob, with more details to be announced. “You cannot expect change if you don’t take a stand,’’ said da Silva in a press release. “That has been the rule in my family. I never walk in these situations with preset judgements about others’ needs. So my friends be present, live your lives with gratitude, awareness and love so when an opportunity to make a difference presents itself, recognize it and help make the change one little step at a time.’’

Sealy the kitten can now rest easily after being freed from a mattress.

uncan Animal Hospital staff are calling last week’s rescued cat Sealy. They can joke now about the itty-bitty kitty’s new name because its story has a happy ending, explained veterinarian Gilian Wiley. The name Sealy was chosen as the feline was found along the Cowichan River last

SOLARIUMS Let us help bring it to reality. Call or visit our showroom.

The family took the distraught cat to Duncan Animal Hospital with rings still wrapped around its neck but freed from the mattress. “It had two loops around it, and one through its mouth. It couldn’t even close its mouth,” explained Wylie. “It’s a super lucky kitten.” Sealy has been taken on by Cowichan Cat Rescue. The society will cover spay/ neutering costs and will be looking for a new home for the kitten.

Wednesday with her head trapped in a mattress spring. Thanks to a family walking in the area, whose pooch heard meows and went to investigate, Sealy likely wasn’t trapped for very long. “Thankfully they had the presence of mind to run home and get bolt cutters,” explained Wiley. Because of the warm weather, she figured if it had been left longer than a day, Sealy might not have survived.

Feds order clean-up in wake of garbage fire, investigation ongoing into blaze Peter W. Rusland

A

n illegal dump-andburn site on Cowichan Tribes land has been ordered cleared and remediated, but deadlines remain hazy, federal officials explain. “The scope of the clean-up needs to be determined before timelines can be decided,” an email from Hazel Desharnais of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada reads. “Regional officials will continue to work with Cowichan Tribes for as long as it takes to maintain the environmental integrity of their lands.” It was also uncertain if, and where, other illegal dumps exist inside Tribes’ reserve lands, the feds said. “Currently, there are no registered leases for commercial landfill operations that have been issued by AANDC on the Cowichan reserve,” her statement to the News Leader Pictorial states. “Department officials are working with the First Nation to identify any other sites.” The recent burn site, off Indian Road and along Qwulshemut Road, saw 1x6-leader net ad.tfn - Composite

Federal officials say it could be several weeks before an investigation into this illegal burn on Cowichan Tribes land is completed. a mountain of trash — spanning construction debris, tires, wood waste and more — torched between June 25 and 28. Smoke filled the Duncan area until the fire was ordered snuffed by Tribes’ chief and council. The Qwulshemut site is registered to Tribes, but held by an unidentified individual through a traditional holding arrangement. “The operator was issued a cease-and-desist order by AANDC in February with respect to the storage of garbage

on the site, in response to public complaints,” Desharnais’ email reads. “Regional officials had a discussion with the operator in July and delivered a cease-and-desist order against further burning. “On that visit, the operator said he would not burn anymore, and would contact the hauler who brought the waste to the site to come remove it.” It was unknown if that removal was happening. “The department acts within the Indian Reserve Waste Disposal Regula-

tions under The Indian Act,” her release says. “As this is an ongoing investigation, further comment about what action the department may take would be inappropriate at this time.” Under that federal probe, it was also unknown if possible charges, fines or jail time will eventually be recommended, she explained. Folks can report reserve-land fires to Cowichan Tribes at 250-748-3196, or notify Emergency Management B.C. at 1-800-663-3456.

Defeated candidate gets government job Peter W. Rusland

pposition-party claims of Cowichan’s defeated Liberal candidate being rewarded with a $20,000 provincial job have met silence from the party’s local constituency president. “I have no comment,” George Robbins said of a short-term strategic planning and events contract landed by former candidate Steve Housser. “I haven’t been following (recent Liberal party contract work), to be honest.” Housser, who did not return calls by press time Thursday, lost by 1,397 votes to Bill Routley, Cowichan’s incumbent NDP MLA, during the May 14 election. Routley was aware of a Victoria Times Colonist report naming nine defeated Liberal hopefuls who’ve gained work from their party since the election swept the Liberals to a surprise re-election. But Routley signalled a majority government doesn’t mean rewarding party faithful. “This (Housser’s contract) shows it doesn’t matter if you’re elected, you’ll get a job anyway,” he said

It’s outrageous that they’re plumping their staff with (defeated) candidates. Isn’t now the time to show some prudence? I’ve seen temporary contracts turning in to long-term ones.”

During the legislature’s July 2 session, Routley also asked Environment Minister Mary Polak to fulfill Housser’s promise about refusing a permit to dump a proposed 100,000 tonnes of toxic soil into South Island Aggregates Ltd.’s quarry near Shawnigan Lake. “Right after the election,” Routley told Polak, “Steve Housser landed a cushy job as manager of strategic planning, working out of the Liberal spin-doctor shop. “Maybe that’s why he has been so quiet about this toxic-waste dump since the election.”

Consultation on Kerry Park reno was a fraud No other conclusion: Considering how quickly recommendation was rejected

M

embers of the Kerry Park Commission are referring comment on their 180-degree turn on a community centre renovation plan to the Cowichan Valley Regional District. So it’s not clear if they are embarrassed or seething about how quickly and totally their plan for the centre was shot down by the regional district. But what is clear is the huge divide between this community advisory group and the elected officials who ultimately make the decisions. Exercise a And it is also clear how tenuous and predetermined abitrary that old standby quote of “listening to the public” is in the politiwaste of time cal world. Just compare the quotes: and money “We came to that decision based on the majority of respondents to our open houses, input and information on our website,” said Kerry Park Commission Chairman Mike Croft while endorsing a referendum on a $14.4-million upgrade. “The commission feels this is the best approach to fund Kerry Park retrofits in the current political climate,” South Cowichan recreation manager Kim Liddle said while announcing, just three weeks later, the decision to reverse that recommendation and proceed with a $3-million upgrade. One can only come to two conclusions from this: either the community consultation process was a fraud conducted by people who heard what they wanted to hear as they worked toward a predetermined outcome; or the community consultation process was a fraud ordered by a political body that had already predetermined its direction on Kerry Park. Either way, it can only be characterized as an exercise in wasting the taxpayers’ time and money.

No resident of North Cowichan would waste much time holding his or her self accountable for a stupid decision by his or her council, or his or her neighbour. Yet there seems to be a one-size-fitsall approach when those same residents pass judgment on actions involving Cowichan Tribes. The actions are performed by individuals. The decisions are made by councils. Understand the difference.

A recent garbage burn on Cowichan Tribes land led to much discussion about racial bias.

Leaders need the courage to change their minds Paul Fletcher

News Leader Pictorial

H

ave you noticed all the landand resource-based issues boiling in Cowichan these days? All around us folks are challenging every level of government on issues that are important to them. The issues are broad-based but share a common denominator — lack of communication on the part of the governing bodies. Issues residents are passionate about include the dumping of contaminated soil in the Shawnigan watershed, dredging of the Cowichan River estuary, the newest Echo Heights development split, Stoney Hill, diking on Seine Road, Cowichan River levels, and the dike and land use issues in my own backyard, Somenos Marsh. Almost every issue has a core group of people leading the fight. Call them what you want, nimbys, hippies, green freaks, or “special interest groups.” But you might be surprised

to learn most are like you and me — ordinary citizens who care deeply about the place they call home and the future they are leaving for the generations following. Locally, land and resource based issues tend to be born when leaders initiate an idea before talking to the public first. Yes, there is often the required public meeting. But I believe — as do many others — most decisions are already made in municipal and regional district hallways before any public process begins. Unfortunately for the opposition, when an issue heats up, many politicians and their staff develop a bunker-like mentality. Rather than address the cause of the increasing tension, they launch counter-measures, which often further alienate the opposition. The issue polarizes into a two-sided table. Proponents sit paid, with staff and resources to move their agendas. Across sit the unpaid people who, despite passion, lack both resources and time to deal effectively and fairly with their counterpart’s actions.

An Italian-Canadian being critical of the action or inaction of Duncan city council or of an Italian-Canadian neighbour would never be called a racist. Yet when a non-Native questions the action or inaction of Cowichan Tribes government, or a Native neighbour, someone will always pull the race card. It’s not only the critics bringing a bias to the table. Sometimes where there is smoke, it is just about the fire.

COWICHAN LEADERS

Unfortunately this unbalanced relationship is rarely acknowledged, leading to later adversarial positions that eliminate any kind of communications that could ease the relationship disparity. It’s like a newly married couple afraid to be the first to reach across the table to the other after a heated discussion. The proposed site of the new police station in Somenos Marsh is the perfect example. I know not a single person outside of the municipal hall who agrees with this proposal. Yet North Cowichan continues to promote its fringe benefits as a beautiful solution for Somenos Marsh. While it might all sound like a beautiful thing to some, it is still the 50% solution, better known as the win-win solution in government circles. The problem is these deals eventually whittle down to little left and that is why dedicated volunteers continue to challenge bad land and resource planning decisions in the region.

Maybe it is time to take the lead of the CRD south of us who recently changed their minds about building a sludge treatment facility in Esquimalt. This reversal came after community outrage, not unlike what has taken place here with some of the more passionate issues. What stood out for me was the CRD press release that basically said we have listened to the people and realize this was the wrong decision, so we are changing our minds. I look forward to the day when Cowichan politicians recognize they too have the ability to change their minds rather than dig in their heels. All they need now is the courage. Paul Fletcher is former Duncan city councillor who writes monthly in the News Leader Pictorial.

YOUR TURN

What are your thoughts about the nail-bomb plot targeting July 1 at B.C.’s legislature? “It’s all a scam. CSIS and the RCMP set up the two suspects to continue building the fear factor to infringe on our rights.”

David Pink, Cobble Hill

“’It was an opportunity for the cops to put more fear into the community. CSIS was aware of it, but it seems the RCMP built a self-induced drama. Police did it for credibility. It was a photo-op.”

Brian Craik, North Cowichan

Stretching of the definition of local may be temporary

Community attitudes need to get out of the schoolyard

Dear editor The truth is at the end of the day, do we want to take the whole Cowichan Tribes population, lump them together and blame them as a whole for an action like the recent garbage burn? I guess we do, and we do it all the time. Many harbour such strong resentment in the dated and very ignorant belief that the effects and history of colonialism and actions of those before us are indeed historical. It is simply excruciating to imagine this kind of treatment of anyone, and, on top of that, to take some responsibility for it — to admit maybe, just maybe, it is still happening right now — in our backyards, in the choices we make on where to socialize and school our children, in the frustrated, resentment-filled comments my beautiful Ojibwe friend receives when she takes a moment to find her status card. The pop bottles and garbage being thrown at First Nations teenagers as they walk home. Wake up! This is happening in our community and it is ours to take responsibility for — that includes the ‘uses’ and the ‘thems.’ We all fear what we do not know. If I don’t know you, it is much easier to condemn you. If Cowichan citizens and political leaders would like to see change happen, throwing out racially blinding and debilitating comments will only serve to reinforce what is hate-filled and segregating about our community. Hate breeds hate, it is not a rocket science concept. As adults, we need to take responsibility for our shame and hatred and not fling it out at others. If we are going to teach school children about empathy versus bullying we need to get out of the school yard ourselves. Franya Elizabeth

In my opinion: Government regulation being reviewed and your input may make a difference

I

agree wholeheartedly in local being maintained as local. I have started a conversation with local farmers, local levels of government, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency regarding the thought process behind why it has loosened the definition of “local.” As a local food producer, Andrew Leong I do not understand why Jason Smith and Kale Burris combined their talents in creating a sand sculpture at the train station parking lot food gowers and producers on June 30. are so afraid to label our Jennifer Woike: food where it is produced Douglas fir forest. wichan and the removal of scarce, valuable, or grown.

The mighty Martin Mars water bomber from Port Alberni-based Coulson Flying Tankers thundered over Cowichan Lake Sunday. It was seen loading, taking off and dumping water during training runs on. These water tankers are accompanied by a smaller chase plane to help keep it safe and to locate the loading and drop sites.

hat once had been a pack of five dogs marauding in the Cowichan Bay area is now down to one, confirmed Cowichan Valley Regional District’s Brian Duncan. According to the CVRD’s bylaw officer, four dogs from the pack have been shot by a farmer. “The first two were shot about four months ago and buried before the SPCA had a chance to look at them,” Duncan explained of information passed to him from the Cowichan SPCA. “(The other) two were shot three weeks ago during an attack on livestock.” This leaves the one pooch bylaw enforcement officers are hoping to trap soon. “The last dog (we hope) is in the Telegraph/Cow Bay Roads area and we are baiting the traps with its favourite cat food,” said Duncan.

(1992) LTD. Complete Repair & Denture Service

The pack is reportedly responsible for killing five goats, two cats and eight chickens May 13. “The dogs were shot in the process of attacking livestock,” he explained, defending farmer’s right to protect animals. “I would say shooting a dog while it is savagely tearing at your baby goat’s throat falls within this right of protecting livestock. “I’m sure most people have never seen a pack of dogs attacking livestock. The aftermath would shock them all. It’s not pretty.” Duncan continues to warn dog owners to keep their pooches at home at night. “Dogs that are allowed to wander off and ‘pack up’ may get into trouble and pay the consequences for their actions,” he said. “I have five dogs and I know exactly where they are every night. They are never allowed to wander because I have a fenced yard.” Sightings can be reported to: Cowichan Valley Regional District bylaw enforcement at 250-746-2620 or the Cowichan SPCA at 250-746-4646

IT’S BEEN 60 YEARS OF HISTORY!

By 1967, A & P Dental Lab was sold to Bob Major, local Dental Technician and the name changed to Duncan Dental Lab Ltd., which was located in downtown Duncan. The business was moved a little later to the Stone Block on Festubert Street. In 1981, Bob Major became a Registered Denturist, working directly for the general public and changed the name to Duncan Dental Ltd. In the summer of 1995, Robert required larger office space to accommodate the growing business and family, so he moved Duncan Dental (1992) Ltd. to its present location at 100-321 Festubert Street. It became a family owned and operated business with wife Dawn and daughter Robyn, (who created the Denture Dude logo). Bob continued to work for Robert until his retirement in 1996. It has been 60 years since A & P Lab first opened, providing quality services to the residents of Duncan followed by Bob Major. Robert Fortunat has continued this and is committed to providing quality service directly to the residents of the Cowichan Valley for many years to come. The highest compliment Robert’s patients give him is the referral of their family and friends. He thanks you for your trust.

Robert Fortunat joined Duncan Dental in 1990 and in 1992 purchased the business. He then changed the name to Duncan Dental (1992) Ltd.

1956: vandals

Trophy rifles taken from the wall in the Canadian Legion building on Government Street were ruined when used as weapons to destroy a pinball machine and the mechanism of a shuffleboard. The thieves took cigarettes and beer from the bar.

1956: raises

1956: industry

Non-nursing staff at King’s Daughters’ Hospital received an increase of three cents per hour in their wages and were promised a further increase of two cents an hour for the following year. Nurses would receive an increase in their annual increments.

Described as an exceptional industrial performance, pneumatic jack lifts erected new 49-ft. high, 25 ft. diameter silos one half inch at a time at the B.C. Cement Co. at Bamberton. Thirty-two men in shifts of 16 completed the job in just over three days.

new visitor centre is rising at the corner of Drinkwater and the Trans-Canada, a response to the burgeoning tourism industry in the valley. Tourism was on the minds of residents 60 years ago when in July 1956, Duncan-Cowichan Chamber of Commerce welcomed a grant of $200 from the provincial government’s trade and industry department. The funds would help toward the cost of operating the chamber’s tourist office over the summer. The chamber council decided the keep the office open evenings in July and August at a cost of $75 per month. As well, a large sign bearing the world “Information” had been placed on top of the building at the corner of Coronation and the Trans-Canada and was expected to draw further attention to the service for visiting motorists. As well, said the chamber, it would be a resource for local residents seeking advice in planning their holidays. A concern for tourism that year was the threat of a curtailed fall fair schedule: cattle quarantine regulations were in place due to a brucellosis outbreak, meaning few animals at the exhibition. The chamber suggested shops be kept open during the weekend of the Cowichan fair to attract more visitors.

Make Your Home Safe for Independent Living Are you a low-income senior or a person with a disability who wants to live safely and independently in the comfort of your home? Do you have difficulty performing day-to-day activities? Does your home need to be adapted to meet your changing needs? If so, you may be eligible for financial assistance under the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program. Find out today if you are eligible and if you meet all of the requirements as a low-income homeowner or as a landlord applying on behalf of an eligible tenant.

To apply or learn more, visit www.bchousing.org/HAFI You can also contact BC Housing: Phone: 604-646-7055 Toll-free: 1-800-407-7757 (ext. 7055)

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities

Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

H O U S I N G M AT T E R S

easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. Since the program began, more than 300 households completed renovations with HAFI financial assistance, making it possible for seniors and people with disabilities to continue to live in the safety and comfort of their home.

Get juiced on jazz this weekend

A tour of Cowichan’s fine wines is usually high on anyone’s list of weekend activities. But jazz fans have been offered an extra incentive. The Misha Piatigorsky Trio is the featured attraction at what’s being called the Juice and Jazz Wine Tour, which rolls through the valley Sunday. You can join the act as it makes stops at four local wineries during the day, followed by dinner at

Vinoteca Zanatta, a free Summer Festival concert, and an intimate indoor show at the Duncan Garage Showroom. “We are pleased to offer Cowichan music enthusiasts this rare opportunity to not only catch such an amazing band at a local venue but to spend the day with them enjoying Cowichan’s beauty and bounty,” said promoter Mary Ann Watson.

In addition to New York piano virtuoso Piatigorsky, the trio features Toronto bassist Neil Swainson and Chris Wabich on Los Angeles on drums Its 6 p.m. show on the Duncan Festival stage is free. The Showroom show is at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. For more info on the Juice & Jazz Wine Tour go to its facebook events page.

Kids say farewell to Cowichan’s Joy of music Joy Ann Bannerman: teacher retiring after nearly 40 years of urging kids to follow their passion Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

R

etiring music teacher Joy Ann Bannerman suggests her replacement use positive reinforcement and ear plugs in the classroom. Kris Poole takes the tuneful reins from Bannerman who’s calling it quits after 37 years teaching thousands of Cowichan kids at various valley schools. There are several reasons noted flutist Bannerman, 58, is saying good-bye. “I’m a breast-cancer survivor,” the patient in remission said, “and Mount Prevost (middle school’s) music program is moving to the Cowichan secondary campus, so it was a good time for someone brand-new to come in.” Then there’s the beating her hearing took during years of teaching and playing. “I have special earplugs that all the band teachers have, but even with that, it does affect my hearing.” Fears about her ears follow teaching band and instrumental lessons, beginning in her native Dartmouth, before moving to Prince George, B.C. in 1977. She came to Cowichan in 1985, instructed at Queen Margaret’s School, then was hired by Cowichan’s school district in ‘86. Until 1990, Bannerman taught at QMS, Quamichan and Prevost. Two years maternity leave left Bannerman back at Prevost and Quamichan in 1992 until ‘96. “It’s been totally at Prevost since then,” said the instructor of instruments, choirs, and bands. “When Devan (Bailey) retired, I also did Cowichan High’s program for one year (2010-11).” Add personal performing on flute with the Cowichan Consort, and for the South Island Musical Society. “Flute’s my main instrument,” said the Cowichan Valley Concert Band’s founder. “I’m a band teacher who was taught how to play everything; our family had lots of instruments around the house.” Her mother, Eunice, was a professional organist, teacher, and piano accompanist in Dartmouth. “And my dad, Alex, put himself through university playing sax in a big band in Dartmouth.” That’s also where Bannerman landed a bachelor of musical education — double major in piano and flute — at Acadia University. Bannerman’s bent for using effective, mental tactics with students could have come from psychology, English and musical studies later at UVic. “My philosophy is positive reinforcement. “I criticize as well, but the main thing is to support and let the music come out of every student; it’s all in there,” she said, noting one pupil did a university thesis on Bannerman’s positive-reinforcement method.

Joy Ann Bannerman is retiring after 37 years of building musical memories with Cowichan students to spend more time with her other passions, including the flute.

“Keep practising,” she urged players. “Follow your passion — you can take this art form and play into your senior years, and making music makes you smarter!” That advice wasn’t wasted on well-known student, Daniel Lapp, a Victoria fiddler and trumpeter. Young teachers were also advised to practise, perform, support local music festivals, and urge kids to hear live music while keeping programs alive in local schools. “If you’re going to teach the instruments, you need to know how to play them,” she said, relating her most

memorable band trip. “The highlight was the California trip when we were invited to David Foster’s mansion in Malibu, and got to watch him work in his studio — then Wayne Gretzky and (wife) Janet Jones walked in!” Bannerman called the Canadian superstar producer — and pizza-party host — “very giving, very generous.” “He only lets one Canadian school band come into his home each year.” Prevost pupils lucked out after Foster noticed the school’s organ-donor awareness program. Meanwhile, Bannerman’s tuned for retirement. She and husband, Charles Granger, aim to travel “back to the Maritimes, and we’re hoping to go to some countries in Europe in the next couple of years,” the cyclist, gardener, and latent cellist, said. “I had lessons in 1984 but my cello sits here, so I want to get back to practising on it, and accompanying students on piano.”

that I hear quite often. The chance of her coat growing in “funny” is very slight, and even so, she doesn’t care and isn’t her comfort the most important thing here? she is suffering in the heat (panting, restless, seeking shade, drinking a lot) and you can easily give her relief by having her clipped short. Older dogs often A: This concern about coat regrowth is something have extra body fat and decreased circulation so

they have real problems cooling themselves. she will not sunburn, as enough hair is left to protect the skin. Having them clipped short, hosing them down, taking them swimming, are all heat relief strategies that will help your canine friends. Long haired cats love a lion cut too. Give this a try, and your dog will love you and I’m sure that it will become an annual or semi-annual event.

Review: Singer’s best shot still packs plenty of punch

News Leader Pictorial

A

nyone who expected Pat Benatar to be a wrungout rock queen got a pleasant shock during Tuessday’s terrific Cowichan Theatre show. The Grammy-winning singer used her well-preserved pipes to plumb the sweet emotions and soaring sounds that made her, and guitarslinging husband Neil (Spyder) Giraldo, household names in the ‘80s. They admitted 3 1/2 decades have passed since mega-hits Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Love is A Battlefield, Heartbreaker and others. Drummer Chris Ralles and bassist Mick Mahan kept the beat while Benatar and Giraldo occasionally chatted to the near-full house, that applauded their 31st anniversary. That’s a long time in a vicious business where some stars are six feet under before reaching 30. But watching Benatar and Giraldo — 60 and 57, respectively — health is clearly an imperative in their warpspeed world of global shows. Sporting a tailored black outfit, Benatar lightly caroused with Giral-

Tattooed guitar collector Giraldo — recently featured in a Guitar Aficionado magazine — employed big Guild hollow-body axes during never-ending string bending, sometimes crouching to play solos. He may have snapped a string on encore Heartbreaker — laying the instrument on the piano, then whapping out some kick-arse keyboard work. “We’re not fooling around up here,” Giraldo said, explaining his red Guild is nicknamed Pain as she’s shaped like a woman, “very difficult to play, talks back, and reminds me of an angry woman at times.” Thirty-one years together meant Giraldo wasn’t necessarily talking about his wife, who used Hit Me to signal she’s a real tough cookie with a long history. Those years also produced encore numbers Everybody Lay Down, and Andrew Leong Let’s Stay Together, after which Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo display their Grammy-winning rock power during Tuesday’s Cowichan Theatre debut. Giraldo flicked picks into the audience. The night’s most endearing tune kids. a ticket.

PUBLIC NOTICE

RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, September 9, 2013 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, December 9, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

He was also an accomplished cook. Bill relocated to BC after Margaret’s passing, living in Victoria for many years before settling in Duncan. His quick wit, charm, and sharp mind will be sorely missed. This life for me is truly passed I’ve loved you all to the very last, Weep not for me, but courage take, And love one another for my sake. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, donations to your local SPCA in his memory would be much appreciated. Condolences at www.hwwallacecbc.com

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.

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.

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, 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.)

Now imagine the commitment of thousands of members hosting socials and teas, bazaars, raffles and other fund-raisers, as well as giving freely of their time to meet their charitable goals.

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.


Lacrosse loss comes down to an eighth of an inch, setting up deciding game Friday, July 12, 2013

Island final: Cowichan goalie ejected for having too-large pads Ashley Degraaf

News Leader Pictorial

T

hey weren’t shy a goal, or an inch. Actually, the Midget A1 Thunder Lacrosse’s goalie’s pads were one eighth of an inch too big. That led to the ejection of starting goalie Pollo Claxton and a 9-7 Cowichan loss in the second match of a best of three Islands final series against Juan de Fuca. The Cowichan boys won their first bout 8-4 and were hoping to advance to provincial playoffs in Port Coquitlam at the end of the month with a second win Tuesday evening at Cowichan Arena.

“We were leading 3-0 in the first period when JDF called a leg pad measurement,” explained coach Lorne Winship. “It turned out that (Claxton’s) brand new pads from this year were one eighth of an inch larger than allowed at the ankles.” “He was therefore ejected from the game and our call-up goalie (Marc Gagnon) had to play for the rest of the game. It was very close the rest of the way however it didn’t end in our favour.” According to coach, Claxton’s pads are “legal everywhere else.” Winship’s commended Gagnon’s performance in what was a fairly close match through to the final minutes. “He played very well despite the circumstances. He was put into an extremely difficult situation.” Thunder’s Taylor Martin put the team’s first digits on the scoreboard with an unassisted goal,

with Tyson Black not far behind with a point and with help from Colin Winship. Black then assisted Martin in his second goal of the game. Brandon Corby scored in the second priod, while Black added his second. In the final period, Martin and Winship both found net, while Martin’s goal was assisted by Black and Corby and Winship’s by Derek Hayes. The Thunder was without Braylon Lumb and Matthieu Jung as they were in California for field hockey obligations. The final match in the series is set for Saturday at 10 a.m. at Kerry Park. Meanwhile, Thunder’s Midget C squad was one short goal of a win, losing 3-2 in a home-game match to Nanaimo.

Genetics and cancer are closely linked. U.S. scientists have discovered mutations in several genes that might be involved with esophageal cancer. The hope is that this knowledge will help develop treatments to prevent the disease from occurring. The cure for cancer could lie in our genes.

At this time of year, our heels often become quite rough from going barefoot. Foot files are available to smooth the skin but have to be used with care. Pumice stones are much safer to use. Diabetics should be particularly cautious and pay close attention to their foot care.

If you are stung by a bee, the stinger may still be in the skin. Take a credit card or a needle (not tweezers!) and scrape the stinger carefully off the skin. Pulling it out with tweezers might release more venom causing more swelling and pain.

Young sailors experience a bit of everything on trip around island

Ship-shape: VanIsle 360 leaves Horsburgh and Salmen-Hartley craving more

o circumnavigation of Vancouver Island would be complete without a boatload of experiences. For two young Cowichan sailors, this year’s VanIsle 360 sailing race put them into uncharted waters. But their training at the Maple Bay Yacht Club gave them the right tools to help deal with anything that came their way. Kieran Horsburgh, 18, and Noah SalmenHartley, 16, were part of the 14-member crew of Stuart and Joy Dahlgren of Sidney’s Westerly, a 70-foot Santa Cruz. The race is held every second year and both felt the time was right to go. It was the second VanIsle 360 for Horsburgh and the first for Salmen-Hartley. “The first one I did was in Grade 10 in 2011,’’ said Horsburgh. It’s not something you see many young people doing, but they were happy to learn even more about what it takes to complete such a venture as part of a team. The race took a little more than two weeks to complete. It was broken up into stages. Horsburgh said he started sailing at the age of seven and currently has all his levels at the Maple Bay Yacht Club. A book entitled Dove about a 16-year-old who completed a solo sailing voyage around the world piqued his interest. “I decided this sounds like a lot of fun and 1x6-leader net ad.tfn - Composite

Kieran Horsburgh, 18 and Noah Salmen-Hartley, 16 circumnavigated Vancouver Island in just over two weeks, as two of the 14 member crew on Westerly, a 70 foot Santa Cruz. chaos and I started sailing,’’ said Horsburgh. “I picked it up pretty quick. I got really into it in a hurry. I’ve just been sailing more and more ever since.’’ Horsburgh has his own 30-foot racing boat. The chance to do his second VanIsle 360 at such an early age with Dahlgren’s crew was just too good to pass up. I ended up being their bowman,’’ he said. “We’ve all been sailing together for a year and

a half, two years. “With that boat, everything’s on such a large scale.’’ The best part of the event for Horsburgh is just enjoying our beautiful coastline. “It’s pretty much the best way you could ever see Vancouver Island,’’ he said. “It’s just an amazing experience to see everything go by and you don’t have the buzzing of the engine.’’ Salmen-Hartley felt the same way.

“I think seeing all of Vancouver island, it gives you a great perspective of the island,’’ he said. Salmen-Hartley also started sailing at age seven when his family bought a 22-foot cruising boat. “When I first started sailing, I didn’t like it at all,’’ he said. “I thought it was very scary.’’ That all changed, of course, after he joined the Maple Bay Yacht Club at age eight and spent more time on the water. Horsburgh says Salmen-Hartley is the hardest worker on the board. “I’m on the bow so I basically bring sails up and take them down,’’ said Salmen-Hartley. “They’re pretty heavy sails so it’s a lot of work.’’ Wind conditions during the race were quite light at times, according to Salmen-Hartley. “There wasn’t very much of it. There was a lot of drifting.’’ The boat ran into some trouble, hitting a rock at the northern end of the island. “There was some concern we wouldn’t be able to finish the race,’’ said Salmen-Hartley. “We sent out a diver and he was able to mostly repair it.’’ The Westerly crew finished fifth in the fastest division of five. “It was a very competitive fleet,’’ said Salmen-Hartley. There was 41 boats in the race overall. Salmen-Hartley said he’d love to do the VanIsle 360 again in a couple of years. The ultimate goal for him and Horsburgh would be to enter the Victoria-Maui yacht race someday. For now, they’ll be jumping aboard Horsburgh’s Olson 30 for some local races. That comes with a smaller crew of seven. “There’s a couple of other people in that boat that are about our age,’’ said SalmenHartley. “I’m the youngest.’’

Melissa on his way to Canadian horseshoe championships Youbou horseshoe player Jerry Melissa is still going strong after many years in the sport. Melissa is on his way to Belleville, Ont. for the Canadian horseshoe championships. He’ll be representing B.C. elder players. The current B.C. champion won his fifth tournament of the season last weekend, the B.C. International in Abbotsford.

The season began with some uncertainty, as Melissa was dealing with a wrecked shoulder and wonky knees. But he simply went about his business of defending his No. 1 status in B.C. horseshoe competitions. Melissa won his first tournament of the year, beating both the Washington state senior and B.C. ladies’ champs along the way and hasn’t looked back.

t was the ladies’ turn to bask in the sun and the spotlight Sunday at Cowichan Golf and Country Club. There was some big hits by players and the Cowichan Ladies’ Open was a big hit, with its own assortment of stars following in the footsteps of the hot shooting by competitors in the men’s two-day tournament the previous weekend. “It was a great turnout,’’ said Marianne Hunt, the Cowichan club captain and part of the organizing committee. “It’s one of the biggest turnouts we’ve had in the last six years.’’ The total of 112 players surpassed the previous entry from each of the last three years by about a dozen. Going back a little further, the tournament field had dipped to as low as 88. “The girls had a great time and I didn’t hear any complaints from anybody,’’ said Hunt. “We had some stellar players up and down the island playing this year.’’ One of those elite players, Janine Kosmenko of Victoria’s Bear Mountain course, topped the low gross standings with a 72. Shelly Stouffer of Fairwinds was four shots back in second. Others making the top 10 included: Sally Dobler of Morningstar at 79; Janet Ruest of Cordova Bay at 80; Penny Baziuk of Ardmore and Denise Walker of Cordova Bay, both at 81; Karen Kloske from March Meadows at 82; Laurie Randall of Uplands at 83; and low Cowichan player Mary Braithwaite, tied with Colleen Wheatley of Arbutus Ridge and Cottonwood/Cordova Bay member Georgina Hermans, at 84. Local players occupied most of the lead positions in low net. Chrisse Chandler of Arbutus Ridge and Mel Spoor of Cowichan were at the top with 68s, Cowichan’s Ellen Lyon and Susan Kubisheski of Mount Brenton both came in at 69 and Marsha Mallow from the B.C. Players’ Club and Cowichan’s Doreen White tied at 70. Hunt said the tournament began with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. and the round took about five hours for most players to complete. While conditions started out warm and clear, some heavy cloud cover rolled in during the later stages of the tournament and looked threatening but didn’t materialize into anything. “I think everybody was pretty comfortable,’’ said Hunt. “We had a nice breeze going most of the way.’’
