JIM BRASS

Former mayor passes Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Former Comox mayor, dentist and community volunteer Jim Brass passed away during the weekend. Brass was mayor of the Town from 2002 to 2008. Current mayor Paul Ives described him as “a mentor” and admired his leadership style. “He always strived to build a consensus (on council),” recalled Ives who said, despite many spilt votes on council initially, Brass encouraged councillors to work together. “(Former councillor) Ray Crossley even bought him a referee jersey, but we got the message.” Ives said Brass was instrumental in working with the City of Courtenay to help bring the skateboard park to fruition. He also worked to create the gymnastics facility, and infrastructure for the town. ... see BRASS ■ 2

Festival over, memories stay Great music, random acts of kindness at 19th annual event Scott Stanfield Record Staff

There’s the music and there are the moments. Lots of them. The 19th annual Vancouver Island MusicFest once again filled the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds on the weekend with sweet sounds and sights, magical moments and random acts of kindness. The Black Creek couple selling mini donuts, for example, were each handed lemonade out of the blue by a former professional football player as they feverishly served customers. Water crew volunteer Susie Williams received a hug from a thirsty patron. Another offered her an ice cream. “We did water crew last year, and we were so appreciated we thought we’d come back again,” she said. “People love us,” her husband Simon added. Cool liquids were a hot commodity all weekend, which kicked off Friday evening at the concert bowl and indoors at the Barn. The main stage featured a Guitar Heroes session with James Burton — who was Elvis Presley’s bandleader — and the smoky voice of

country music Hall of Famer Kris Kristofferson. The latter was followed by the highenergy Walk Off The Earth — a stark contrast to the mellow Kristofferson, who was joined for a couple of tunes by his daughter Kelly. “Aren’t you glad you paid money to see an old fart blow his nose?” Kristofferson joked at one point in the show. Saturday headliners included the Grammy-winning folk-rock duo Indigo Girls and singer-songwriter John Hiatt, who thanked the audience for allowing him to play music for a living. The 24th Street Wailers blew the roof off the Barn Saturday night, then reappeared for a few impromptu numbers before Afrobeats/hip-hop artist Blitz The Ambassador took over the concert bowl. Sunday featured the multi-Grammy Award-winning Mary Chapin Carpenter — among a select group of women inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame — and Marc Cohn, who penned the Grammywinning ballad Walking in Memphis. Six stages featured a host of local and international artists throughout the weekend. For the first time, evening performances were held in the Barn. Another new element was musical theatre provided by Jackie Richardson in the role of Willie Mae (Big Mama) Thornton, who ... see FESTIVAL ■ 2

Winemakers diversifying to‘thirsty beer drinkers’ Renee Andor Record Staff

Something is brewing in the Comox Valley. Beaufort Winery owners Jeff and Susan Vandermolen are preparing to launch another business, and this time they’ve set their sights on brewing beer. “We’re excited and we want to bring this to the Valley, and from what I’ve heard, there’s a lot of thirsty beer drinkers out there that would welcome it,” Jeff says of the couple’s planned micro-brewery. “Clearly there isn’t one (in the Comox Valley) and…I think we really need to catch up with our peers to the south in Nanaimo, and Campbell River, and have a micro-brewery here.” The Vandermolens are busy putting a business plan together for the new venture, and unlike Beaufort Winery, they will look for investors for their company, called Comox Glacier Brewing Ltd. A number of local businesspeople have already shown interest, adds Jeff, who is still deciding on a location for the brewery, which will be a completely separate entity from Beaufort. “We’re fielding some inquiries from a number of different people and we’re going to pick the best location, so it’s still up in the air

to drive too far.” The couple plans to use barley, wheat and hops to craft Weiss beer, which Jeff describes as summer beer that is “nice and light and

there’s the possibility that if you’ve got enough critical mass you can get one of those facilities put in here. We’ll just have to put a little pressure on our local MLA.” Jeff says the micro-brewery could expand at some point, but he and Susan plan to start very small, and focus on their product, just like they did when they started Beaufort Winery in 2006, which has been successful. “I think we can leverage our success from Beaufort and, really, I think we have the potential to do with beer what we did with wine, which is really create a world-class product that’s handcrafted right here in the Comox Valley,” says Jeff, noting they are already busy with Beaufort, but are confident they can make a successful microbrewery in the Valley. “Our plate is really full with the winery quite frankly, but they say if you want to get something done, give it to a busy person. So we’ve going to instigate this and take it as far as we can and then, ideally, we can do a handoff to somebody else, but I think the key is to get it going and get people excited, and so far so good.” For more information, check out Comox Glacier Brewing Ltd. on Facebook.

JEFF AND SUSAN Vandermolen, known for making fine wine at Beaufort Winery, are diversifying into the beer business. FILE PHOTO at this moment,” continues Jeff. “But, ideally, it’s going to be somewhere where people have easy access so they can come in and buy the product without having

running by the third quarter of 2014 — that’s realistic I think,” he says. It’s easy to get equipment and it’s just a matter of pulling the key people together. We would definitely bring in a brewmaster that has a lot of credibility and experience and so, we’ve got to find the right team and, if we get that all in place, it could happen even sooner.” The Vandermolens will likely try growing some hops in test plots, but Jeff says due to the capital investment needed for equipment to grow barley and wheat they won’t be growing those crops any time soon. However, he notes all ingredients they buy will be sourced as locally as possible, and if they can source ingredients like wheat and barley from farmers right in the Comox Valley, they’d be interested in doing so. But, “there’s another element to barley, which means, basically it has to be malted before it’s turned into beer and I think the nearest malting facility is in the Interior, so I think there’s some infrastructure that would have to be put in place for that to happen,” he continues. “But, you know what, there’s a growing number of micro-breweries on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland, and who knows,

‘Brownfield’ funding to help develop ex-sawmill site Record Staff A Courtenay forestry company is receiving up to $145,204 from the B.C. government to help turn an unused lot, the site of a former sawmill, into a multi-use complex, MLA Don McRae announced Friday. The location is at the site of a former sawmill operated by SCG Forest Inc. in the southern part of the city on Comox Logging Road.

SCG Forest Inc. is an affiliate of Korean company Seoul City Gas Inc. The multi-use complex would include residential development, a meeting and information centre, restaurants, commercial store space, and gardens, BC Government Caucus Communications said in a news release.

Changing of guard Over 100 members of 19 Air Maintenance Squadron stood on parade July 10 to bid farewell to outgoing commanding officer Maj. Chris Shapka, while welcoming incoming commanding officer Maj. Brian Payan. “I have greatly enjoyed the privilege of being the commanding officer of 19 Air Maintenance Squadron,” said Maj. Shapka, “I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with a group of dedicated and highly professional squadron members. It is the support, provided in large part by 19 AMS, that enables the continued and critical operations conducted at 19 Wing. I’m very proud of all we have accomplished over the past two years.” The majority of 19 AMS members are highly skilled technicians who specialize in aircraft structures, armament, avionics, non-destructive testing and mechanical support. The unit performs second-line maintenance for 442 and 407 Squadrons in Comox, 443 Squadron in Victoria, as well as providing explosive ordnance disposal services to 19 Wing. “It is with considerable honour and excitement that I assume this appointment as CO of 19 AMS, working alongside its proud and successful members,” said Maj. Payan, who is returning to 19 Wing, having previously served at 407 Squadron in 1999 as the aircraft maintenance officer and quality systems manager. Maj. Payan enrolled in the Canadian Armed Forces in 1994 as a reserve lineman. He attended the Royal Military College of Canada and graduated in 1998 as an Aerospace Engineering and

Maintenance Officer. In 2003, Maj. Payan did his post-graduate training at the National Test Pilot School in Mojave, California and graduated in 2004 with a Master of Science and Flight Test Engineering. He followed this with a posting to the Aerospace and Engineering Test Establishment in Cold Lake as a Rotary Wing project officer. In 2010, Maj Payan served with the Project Management Office for the Maritime Helicopter Project. Maj. Payan is joined in his new posting by his wife and two children. ••• 19 Air Maintenance Squadron (19 AMS) provides second-line aircraft maintenance support to all of the flying squadrons at CFB Comox, and specific aircraft maintenance support to 443 Maritime Helicopter Squadron in Victoria.

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.

DAVID COX CYCLED up and down the Island to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Climate change will impact a greater number of sensitive species in Strathcona Provincial Park than any other park in B.C., says a new study led by the University of Victoria. The research team from UVic’s Geography SPAR Lab (spatial pattern analysis research) used mapping technology to predict future environmental changes in each of B.C.’s provincial parks. Established in 1911, Strathcona is the oldest provincial park in B.C. It will experience an increase in vegetation and a

growing tree line, according to the research team. Climate stress and a heightened tree line would negatively impact growth of the mountain heather alpine environment where the Vancouver Island marmot thrives. “By modelling future conditions we hope conservationists will make smart decisions about biodiversity in our provincial parks,” says researcher Keith Holmes. The team hopes its mapping tool will help conservationists with future parks planning and long-term preservation of biodiversity.

North Island College (NIC) and the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding on July 5 that will benefit students of both institutions. The MOU recognizes common interests in many academic and educational fields and the need for publicly funded post-secondary institutions to collaborate for the benefit of students. The agreement is effective initially for three years and commits the institutions to explore collaboration and joint initiatives in three key areas: • Planning: The institutions will seek opportunities to contribute to each other’s planning efforts, including through sharing non-confidential data. They will also develop and implement proposals that support student needs and regional needs. • Program development and delivery: The institutions will explore articulation of courses and programs to encourage student transfers,

along with the development and implementation of collaborative courses. They will also exchange information and expertise to strengthen and expand educational pathways for students. • Scholarly Activity: The parties will look to collaborate on scholarly activity such as proCAMPBELL RIVER

fessional development, research partnerships, and joint proposal submissions. The MOU was signed at NIC’s Comox Valley Campus in Courtenay by NIC president Dr. Jan Lindsay and JIBC president Dr. Michel Tarko. — North Island College

Free safety checks on water Search and Rescue using Transport Canada program

JUSTINA JOHNSON WITH her son Jonny gets acrylic nails from Sarah Dawson, owner and operator of Sunkissed Beauty Bar. Johnson is one of five young parents who graduated from Vanier Secondary School this spring as part of the Today ‘N’ Tomorrow Learning Society’s (TNTLS) Young Parent Program.

Young parents beautified

Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue crews in the Comox Valley will come alongside local boaters this summer, but there will be no emergency. Instead, boat operators will be offered a free safety check under a new program supported by Transport Canada. “We’re doing something new this boating season. While we’ve always promoted boating safety with shorebased programs, this year our search and rescue crews will offer safety checks for pleasure craft that are away from the dock and out on the water,” said Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) president Jim Lee. “Our search and rescue crews in the Comox Valley will have even more opportunity to connect with the boating public, help boaters ensure they have all the safety gear they need, and promote what we call search and rescue prevention.” The Vessel Safety Survey Program is strictly voluntary and will be provided as a courtesy to boaters who request it. Crews will approach vessels and offer to check items such as personal flotation devices, signalling devices, fire extinguish-

RCM-SAR ers, bailers, radar reflectors, navigation charts, and other items. RCM-SAR crews are search and rescue specialists and do not provide enforcement. The RCM-SAR 2013 Vessel Safety Survey program will receive $150,000 through Transport Canada’s Boating Safety Contribution Program, which promotes safe boating practices by pleasure craft operators and aims to reduce deaths and injuries from boating accidents. There were more than 560 boating-related deaths in British Columbia between 1991 and 2008.

“It also allows us to spend more time on the water in addition to our regular training.” The Comox Valley RCM-SAR station is one of over 40 in B.C. The RCM-SAR crews provide 24/7 marine search and rescue coverage with two vessels and over 35 volunteers covering the area from the southern end of Hornby and Denman islands; north towards Quadra Island and east towards Powell River. The Vessel Safety Survey program will continue until Jan. 31. For more information, go to http://rcmsar. com/sar-prevention/ vessel-safety-surveyprogram. – RCM-SAR Unit 60 Comox Valley

During the past year, RCM-SAR crews were called out on more than 690 missions to assist people on the water in British Columbia. RCM-SAR Unit 60 Comox Valley responded to over 50 calls in 2012. “As the busy summer boating season gets underway, this will be a great way for us to make contact with boaters on the water and help them make sure their vessels are safe,” said Comox Valley RCM-SAR Station leader Jim Linderbeck. “The waters in our area can be dangerous, and these safety surveys will reduce the likelihood of people needing us to rescue them.

KYLIE AND CARTER enjoy the Shamrock Farm lavender field.

Open house for‘super-herb’

Shamrock Farm is having its Lavender Harvest Open House on July 18, 19, 20 and 21 from noon to 5 p.m. With 39 known species and a history dating back thousands of years, lavender has long been beneficial in countless ways. This super-herb can be ground up, dried or distilled into oil and is valuable for both medicinal and culinary purposes. Shamrock Farm has been growing lavender locally in the Comox Valley for more than a decade and the farm is gearing up for its annual harvest. All 1,000 of Shamrock Farm’s lavender plants are harvested by hand and much of the lavender is then distilled with steam on-site in the farm’s copper still. Shamrock Farm also sells bunches of bouquets — freshly cut and dried — as well as lavender essential oil, hydrosol and soap made with goat milk from the resident goats. To celebrate this year’s lavender harvest, Shamrock Farm is inviting the public to its open house in July. This is a free event and will feature something fun for visitors of all ages. Stop by and view demonstrations of the harvesting and distillation processes, ask questions and meet the farm animals that call Shamrock Farm home. A variety of the farm’s lavender products will be available for sale and a mobile food vendor will serve fresh food, beverages and snacks. Shamrock Farm’s lavender harvest open house dates this year are from July 18 through the 21st between noon and 5 p.m. each day. Admission is free and the farm accepts cash or cheques for any purchases. Shamrock Farm is in Comox at 2276 Anderton Rd. For more information, visit the farm online at www.shamrockfarm.ca or call 250-339-1671. — Shamrock Farm

SHREK THE MUSICAL opens at the Sid Williams Theatre on July 16 for six shows. Performers Eric Patterson (from Saskatoon) and Alora Bowness (Prince George) pretend to be knights while Montana Van Velzen from the Comox Valley adds life to furry puppets. As musical director, Burns will assist with casting, work with the orchestra and supervise the overall musical arc of the show.

Newberry blends heart and mind The popular Filberg Park Concert Series continues this Thursday night with critically acclaimed storyteller and musician David Newberry. Comox Valley music fans are in for a very special evening July 18 and will hear first hand why Newberry has caught the attention of some of Canada’s top folk icons. “David’s music is delivered with passion and intensity such as I have rarely experienced. Each song is like a masterpiece of concise writing, not one wasted word or thought,” says three-time Juno Award winner David Francey. “Each drives home the fact that I am listening to exquisite insights into the human condition. A brilliant blend of heart and mind that is all but missing in most of his contem-

poraries writing today. He is a brilliant poet and compelling performer. “I will be in the audience again as often as I can. I think he is an outstanding writer. Simply outstanding.” There is a joy in Newberry’s sometimes-sombre music that is hard to explain. His live shows are frequently full of storytelling, humour, and a strange celebration of life somehow rooted in a twisted pessimism. His compositions provide insights into the complex contemporary social world through musical and lyrical exploration. Not one to waste words, Newberry packs each phrase with the kind of thought, meaning, and complexity that is most often associated with singer-songwriters of the 1960s. Newberry’s music is also inescapably forward-look-

ing, constantly aiming to broaden the understanding of what roots music sounds like. “While other singersongwriters talk about their storytelling skills and their ability to draw you into a song, Canadian singer David Newberry delivers,” says Roots Reviewer “No Depression.” “His repertoire is is packed with beautifully crafted songs, the kind of music that has to be made by hand with great care. Coupled with his beautiful voice, you have quite the package ... His songs are gently sad, almost wistful, possibly exhausted: really the only emotions we have anymore in a world on

the brink ... a refreshingly ego-less perspective that’s unfortunately very rare.” Newberry’s music is proof that the future of Canadian folk music is in good hands. Tickets for his concert are only $15 and kids and kids under 12 are free. Bring a blanket, a picnic and friends and family for a night of beautiful music in a beautiful venue. Tickets are available at http://filberg.com/filbergsummer-concert-series, Laughing Oyster Bookshop, Long and McQuade, Blue Heron Books and at the gate starting at 6 p.m. Cash only please. Music starts at 7. — Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park

STORYTELLER AND MUSICIAN Dave Newberry is “a brilliant poet and compelling performer,” says threetime Juno winner David Francey. Newberry performs Thursday at Filberg Park.

Tickets for Shrek, at $23 for evening performances and $21 for the matinee, are available at the Sid Williams Theatre.

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Joey has new band Clarkson and Boom-ers play to launch new CD Come and celebrate the release of Joey Clarkson’s new summer pop/rock album See You, Love You, Behave Yourself! with a live performance by Joey and the Boom-ers. They play July 20 at 8 p.m. at the Lower Elks Hall in downtown Courtenay. Many of you will know Joey from her various community endeavours, most recently spearheading the Habitat for Humanity project The House the Kids Built and directing/musically directing for Rainbow Youth Theatre, this years production of 13 as well as her numerous performances on Vancouver Island. Joey is gaining airplay on Canadian and European radio stations with her two singles MJ Get Out and Save Yourself and has been featured with Happier, a song co-written at the Vancouver Island Music Business Conference with Bill Henderson of Chilliwack. Hailing from the Comox Valley, arguably the Canadian community with the highest percentage of musicians per capita, Joey Clarkson and the Boom-ers are a fivepiece rock band fronted by award-winning singer/songwriter Joey Clarkson. Described as Katy Perry meets Cheap Trick, the band is garnering attention from leaders in the music scene. Crystal-clear vocals with sometimes shockingly evocative lyrics and a modern pop feel are fused with classic rock instrumentals to create an innovative contemporary sound that pulls people to the dance floor. The newly revamped band features Clarkson on lead vocals and guitar, Breanne Larson on backup vocals, Jesse McCloy on lead guitar, Brian Wilson on bass and Taylor Allum on drums, all serving up a delicious performance with a generous side order of eye candy.

Rink Minx, Betties do battle on derby track Roller derby fans were treated to an intense, crowd-pleasing bout July 6 at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. The Brick House Betties took on local rivals, the Rink Minx Rollergirls, in the Betties’ last bout of their 2013 season. Both teams exchanged hard hits and power plays, but the Rink Minx came out with a 276-246 win. “We fought hard, executed the strategies we have been practicing, and we had fun,” said Cheryl Takahashi (TakaSmashi) of the Brick House Betties. Each team took to the track with anticipation: the Betties have concentrated on recruiting and building their team this year and were pleased to present an entirely Betties roster, whereas the Minx are undefeated this season and were keen to add another win to their stats (now 5-0; Betties end season 1-3). The Brick House Betties started strong, playing seasoned veterans such as Lee-thal Lyanimal, Beaver Canoe and Wright Krazy, and gained an early lead. “The Betties came to play early, and it took a concerted effort to turn the Minx’s fortunes around,” said Ziv Kruger, visiting co-coach of the Rink Minx. Midway into the first half, the momentum switched in the Minx’s favour as they pulled ahead in points. After halftime, the Minx suffered a loss when team captain, Sweet Sufferin,’ took a hit that knocked her out of the game. The Minx were already down one of their star rookie jammers, Lumbersmack, due to prior injury. Sweet’s loss was a shake up to the team, but the Minx were determined to keep going strong. Both teams worked hard to recover momentum after the lengthy timeout and spectators were treated to an exciting second half. The Minx did not let the Betties’ points come easily. Their hardest-

hitting line of Foxie McMuff, Dar the Star, Melicious Moose, and Young trapped every jammer they could get in front of. Despite attempts at offensive blocking by the Betties, their agile jammer TakaSmashi had to work hard to get through the Minx’s solid defence. As the clock ran down, penalties picked up. During the Betties’ power jams in the second half, the Minx were sometimes down to one player, especially Chantos Sanchez, who tried her best to stop each grand slam. The Betties made up over 70 points in the last few minutes, but could not recover from the Rink Minx’s lead. “Although we did not win, we played an exciting game,” said Twyla MacDonald (Ruby Whipper), co-captain of the Betties. “Closing the point spread in the second half was a really great feeling for the team since this was a Betties-only roster. Our rookies played hard and never gave up, even when they were on the receiving end of the hard-hitting Rink Minx. That was definitely a great game to finish off our season.” The Brick House Betties’ season is over, but the Minx have one more game before they hang up their skates. Roller derby fans can close out the Comox Valley’s derby season at Brawlroom Blitz, featuring Victoria’s Belles of the Brawl, Saturday at the CVSC. Look up the Rink Minx on Facebook and Twitter to learn more. Representing the Rink Minx Rollergirls and the Brick House Betties respectively, Lita Riot and Handsaw Gretel have collaborated on this article. Anyone interested in recruitment to the fastestgrowing sport around with either of these local teams is invited to find information online at the team websites. – Rink Minx Rollergirls and Brick House Betties

Esther Sample knows how to make great things happen on the canvas – both as an artist and a martial artist. In November of 2011, the talented Comox resident became the first female winner (in 22 years) of the Pacific Salmon Foundation’s stamp art contest. In June of 2013, she became the Canadian Muay Thai Association’s B.C. lightweight champion. The MMA title came about rather unexpectedly for the Knockout Martial Arts and Fitness of Courtenay competitor, who was in Vancouver on June 22 for the Muay Thai Kai Singthong Thaiboxing Challenge. Sample says she was at the weigh-in when event organizers suggested putting the open 130-pound weight division title on the line. “They sprung that one on us,” Sample said. When fight night rolled around Sample was in the ring against Cheryl Hashimoto of Duncan in a title tilt scheduled for five, twominute rounds. Sample said it took her a few rounds to figure out how to best battle her opponent, which she did with increased confidence and adrenaline as the fight wore on. So commanding was her performance that she won every round and earned the belt via unanimous decision, with all three judges scoring it 50-45. Earning a championship in just her third official fight (she has competed in several tournaments and exhibitions) was quite the feat for the 38-year-old Sample, who has been training in MMA for

Comox Valley golfers had a tough time at the 111th BC Amateur, cohosted by the Springs at Radium in Radium Hot Springs and the Copper Point Golf Club in Invermere. Only one of the four local competitors were around for the final two rounds of the July 9-12 event, which was reduced to the low 73 who made the cut at +8 on July 10. Matthew Hamilton of Courtenay was in an eight-way tie for 53rd place at +7 after the first two rounds. Hamilton shot 72 on Thursday to stand at +7 and in a seven-way tie for 44th. Third-round leader Mark Carrigan of Victoria was at -13 (70-62-69=201) heading into the final round on Friday. Packing their bags early last week were Mark Valliere of Courtenay (76-78=154, +12), Logan Yanick of Courtenay (79-76=155, +13), and Terran Berger of Comox (7681=157, +15). Capturing the Ham-

Saratoga Beach Golf Course back in the swing After a $300,000 cash injection and months of extensive grounds and facility upgrades, a once popular local golf course in Black Creek is welcoming golfers back on the greens. “The nine-hole Saratoga Beach Golf Course and Driving Range has been a part of this community since the 1970s, but it had fallen on hard times and had been closed for the last four seasons,” said manager Keith “Gibby” Gibson. “Last fall we began working on getting the greens, tees and fairways back into prime condition and we did extensive renovations

to much of the infrastructure, including rebuilding the driving range and renovating the clubhouse and maintenance building. While we are pleased with the facility upgrades and improvements – and the brand new rental clubs – we are most excited about the new management at Saratoga Beach Golf.” Gibson, who has been the head golf professional and director of operations for Long Beach Golf Course in Tofino the past 13 years, was the 2008 PGA Head Professional of the Year. A past-president of the Professional Golfers

GOLF PROS KEITH Gibson (left) and Lance Barber are revitalizing Saratoga Beach Golf Course in Black Creek.

Association (PGA) of BC, he has hired Lance Barber to be the new operations manager and golf pro at Saratoga Beach. “I have worked with Lance as an assistant golf pro at Long Beach for several years,” says Gibson. “He is a dedicated team player with a passion for golf, a commitment to community and a penchant for excellent customer service. He has relocated his family to the Comox Valley and is committed to help rebuild the decadesold reputation of the Saratoga Beach Golf Course.” Barber, whose father was a PGA of Cana-

da professional, completed his professional golf course management courses at Camosun College and took on many roles as an assistant golf professional. Previous experience includes work with the Capilano Golf & Country Club, Sun Rivers, Qualicum Beach Memorial and, most recently, the Long Beach Golf Course. During his time at each facility he grew as a player and instructor while continuing to pursue his career in becoming a head professional within the PGA of Canada. He is passionate about growing the game of golf in general, and Saratoga

Beach Golf Course in particular, and says that he “enjoys working with all levels of golfers to help them accomplish their playing goals. “In addition to welcoming golfers of all ages and skill levels, I am particularly looking forward to building a junior golf program, working with local schools and community groups, and creating a family fun environment at Saratoga Beach,” said Barber. “This is a great golf course.” For more information call 250-337-2208 or visit www.golfsaratogabeach.com. – Saratoga Beach Golf Course

Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club celebrated Canada Day in fine form. In a fundraising Bowlerama, 40 bowlers played during 24 hours, with 396 ends played and more $1,300 raised in sponsorship. Melie Ursulom bowled the most ends at 106, with Vern Greenhill at 100 and Chad Kelly, who bowled continuously for 12 hours, at 96 ends. Jackie West and Dean Penny never left the green for the 24 hours. At 2 a.m., in the dark, there were four greens in use. Jackie West brought in the most sponsorships at $265.

V9N 2Z7 www.comoxvalleyrecord.com editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com The Comox Valley Record is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the conduct of member newspapers. Directors oversee the mediation of complaints, with input from both the newspaper and the complaint holder. If talking with the editor or publisher does not resolve your complaint about coverage or story treatment, you may contact the B.C. Press Council. Your written concern, with documentation, should be sent to B.C. Press Council, 201 Selby St., Nanaimo, B.C. V9R 2R2. For information, phone 888-687-2213 or go to www.bcpresscouncil.org

The RCMP did their job Two people were charged last week in one of the most disturbing terrorist plots to be hatched on Canadian soil. John Stewart Nuttall and Amanda Marie Korody were arrested July 1 on terrorism-related charges after the planting of disabled pressure cooker bombs outside the legislature in Victoria. Yet, only days later, civil libertarians were calling for more detail on how police investigated the Canada Day bomb plot, to see if officers came too close to entrapping the accused Surrey couple. Doubts have grown in some minds about the pair’s ability to carry out an act of terrorism as more information emerged about their impoverished life, living on social assistance without a vehicle and getting methadone treatment for drug addiction. Police say they became “self-radicalized” to support the Al-Qaeda ideology and posed a serious threat to kill or maim people. Micheal Vonn, policy director for the B.C. Civil Liberties Association, said the concern is that undercover officers may have interacted with the suspects to further the plot and provide assistance. Authorities apparently knew of the plan for five months, and were closely monitoring the couple. Vonn sees parallels to the “Mr. Big” investigations where officers pose as a crime boss and his henchmen, and goad a suspect to say or do incriminating things in order to become part of the organization. It is hard to imagine two people voluntarily agreeing to be involved in a plan to kill and wound hundreds of Canada Day revellers. And if police did engage with the suspects to determine how far they’d go, or if others were involved, it simply shows there are confused or “radicalized” or unbalanced individuals out there vulnerable to suggestions that such evil violence is justified. Kudos to the Canadian secret service and the RCMP for doing their jobs — the protection of innocent people.

While I can’t speak for my fellow councillors, I do know that each of us wrestles with the issues. While we might not always agree, I can honestly say I have never questioned the integrity of any of the fine people I’m proud to serve with as councillors. I take exception with the accusation that I’m hiding in the shadows. Quite to the contrary, I’m standing in the light and easy to find. I’m proud of my service to the city and when the time is appropriate I’ll be more than happy to discuss all the facts, not just the isolated facts of this issue with anyone. Whether you gain or lose a vote in the next election, I believe integrity is doing the difficult thing even when there are consequences. Fortitude is doing the difficult thing because it is right, regardless of the conseBill Anglin, quences. Courtenay

Apology for art gallery slight Dear editor, I would like to apologize for my recent negative comments about the firehall art gallery (Comox Valley Art Gallery). I recently visited the gallery and was very impressed with the exhibition of First Nations art — carvings, paintings and mixed media. The exhibit of sculpture in the small gallery was also impressive.

It is nice to know that the Valley has such high-quality exhibitions of local art and do not have to fight the ferries or traffic to Vancouver or Victoria to see very stimulating art work. Parking is easily available. The exhibition evolves both the spirit world as well as impressive rendering of wrecked ships on the beach. The artist moves with great skill from carv-

ing into other mediums with equal skill. If you are looking for something different to show your friends and relatives visiting the Valley, I highly recommend these exhibits. The next exhibition looks equally interesting and will be of great interest to our visiting tourists from all over the world. Brian Scott, Black Creek

just discussing the price!” About 20 years ago, a group of civic-minded citizens presented a plan to create a cultural centre for the Comox Valley, housing a 1,000-seat venue, an art gallery and museum, providing an economic base to support our performing and visual arts, our heritage and attract convention tourism. Imagine where we might be today if rather than worry about the cost, folks grasped the vision. Price is what you pay, value is what you get.    Marty Douglas, Comox Valley

Raving about ravers Dear editor, Attention all ravers. Have we got a new place for you to party! On July 6 and 7 we were at Sandy Island Marine Park with our granddaughter and a couple of friends for a nice camping weekend. Funny enough, a group of 50 young people arrived on the island with a huge stereo, kegs of beer, tents, a full on DJ set up with soundboard, laptops and a whole slew of people and children just waiting to party! These folks started the music, drinking, frolicking about in costumes and having a great time. As time went on the music got louder so six of us older gentlemen walked over to have a chat asking them to maybe turn the music down (it was 11 p.m.) only to be told that they were going all night long and they planned to get even louder! What fun! The ground was shaking and we didn’t need to talk anyways, the lights were flashing,

33

and it really didn’t matter that our granddaughter couldn’t sleep and was crying, she needed to learn how to party anyways. I’ve been to a lot of concerts, but this was something else. That electro beat sure is heavy and consistent! Someone in our camp went out to the camp hosts (volunteers from the Comox Yacht Club) and they weren’t prepared to tackle this party (can’t say as I blame them). Someone else called the RCMP, and their response was that as long as there was no fire issue, they wouldn’t come out. So the fact that they rocked on to 4 a.m., and started again at 8 a.m. and went all day is entirely OK. Never mind that you are an underage drinker, or that it is a public, protected park, you can come out there and have a totally, free party! What a great spot! Shame we cut our camping trip Mark Duncan, short. Comox Valley

Dear editor, Hats off to Mayor Jangula for making his views public about the Maple Pool issue, and here’s hoping he’ll continue to do so with other issues that are voted on in secret by the council. This transparency is the kind of honesty and integrity that I think most people would like to see from their public servants. Interesting how angry it is making his fellow councillors, making us wonder just what is it that they have to hide? Is it that they fear they won’t be reelected if people actually know how they are voting? Remove the veil of secret meetings, and let us decide if these people really are representing their electorate’s views and wishes.  And if they’re not, vote them out! And I now see Jangula has voted against paid holidays to conferences for the entire council, the only person on the council to show common sense and speak on behalf of the taxpayer about the absolute lack of necessity of seven councillors from the Valley spending tax dollars in this way. As he says, other communities send a couple of representatives, and surely the councillors can decide amongst themselves or even draw straws as to who gets to go on these luxury supposedly-working holidays. And if they’re not capable of bringing back what they learn and sharing it, then why are they elected to such a position?  For many of us, Mayor Jangula is exactly the kind of politician we would like to see at every political level, and I’m very glad to see other

larry Jangula

letters in support of him. His election promise was that he would be thrifty with taxpayers’ money, and he has been true to his word. He said he was not

into hassling Maple Pool, and he has been true to his word. He is a man who can always be trusted to speak common sense, he is not hiding anything about his feelings on issues or how he votes on them, and we can be confident he is not lining up at the trough for fringe benefits or any personal gain. He elevates the role of politician to a much more respected level and is setting an excellent example as to

what we should expect and demand from politicians.  Indeed, he’s a true public servant, honestly representing the wishes of the majority of his electorate. And this is apparently not making him very popular with the rest of council. I do hope he gets elected again next time around, and why not elect a council of similar-minded genuine public servants along with him? S. Joy, Merville

Their bridge — the swine probably stole our idea — isn’t downtown and won’t carry bicycles.  A suspension bridge, 60 metres above the Campbell River canyon and 90 metres long, will take tourists into the forest canopy of Elk Falls Park, rather than into the business district.  Partners include the Campbell River Rotary Club, BC Hydro and BC Parks, and the cost is approximately $500,000.  I know what you’re thinking — our bridge costs more.

Price you pay, value you get Dear editor, In today’s edition of Building Links, the must-have publication for construction projects, bids and tenders in the Comox Valley, Campbell River and points north, there is a curious item.  Apparently in Campbell River, that hotbed of foolish ideas such as a can-do attitude and high hopes, residents — not the municipality — are actually building a bridge. Why didn’t we think of that? While we fill the letters to the editor pages with sound and fury over a project that so far is a nice model with a noble purpose, they just went ahead, formed partnerships and got the financing and now are in the pre-construction phase.

Landfill funds to be discussed Renee Andor Record Staff

Cumberland council will soon discuss how to best spend an additional $300,000 per year, according to Mayor Leslie Baird. The host community agreement, signed off by Cumberland and the Comox Valley Regional District, was created to compensate Cumberland due to the Comox Valley waste management centre (formerly known as Pidgeon Lake Landfill) being within its municipal boundaries. According to the agreement, Cumberland can expect $300,000 per year for the duration of the 20-year agreement, plus $3 million for a one-time upgrade to the Cumberland/Bevan road corridor leading to the landfill. Baird says council will likely hold a special meeting in August to discuss what the $300,000 per year could go toward. “It’s going to be really interesting to listen to each member of council because I’m sure they have all their passion of what they believe the money should be spent on, so it’s going to be the five of us working together to come up with it,” says Baird, noting she’s looking forward to hearing Village staff ideas as well. She notes Coun. Gwyn Sproule is away on vacation, but as soon as she’s back a meeting date will be set, and that meeting will be open to the public. Coun. Roger Kishi, who represents Cum-

berland on the ComoxStrathcona Waste Management Board, says the $300,000 per year is designed to “compensate the Village for social, environmental and economic impact. “So, we have some pretty broad areas that the Village can consider to put the funds towards,” he said, noting council has not talked about how to spend the money. However, Baird and Kishi both note the Village is working on a number of important projects, like the new fire hall project and the Village Park renewal project. Kishi also notes council has talked, a

few times over the past year, about the need to increase its reserve funds. “For a long time the Village has felt that there should be some kind of compensation to the Village for the effect of having the waste management centre within our boundaries,” says Kishi, noting he believes the agreement is fair to both parties. “It’s not everything that we asked for and it’s not everything that Regional District wanted either, and it truly was a negotiated agreement that had been going on for several months.” “I’m really excited about the roadway

being done, the $3 million, because we would not have been able to do that with the present way our funding is,” Baird says, noting the road is in need of upgrades. “Especially around where the wetlands are, and that (wetland) stopped us from having bike lanes there because of it — and with this work we should be able to look at the possibility of bike lanes. According to the agreement, geotechnical and subsurface surveys are expected this year, design is expected in 2014, and construction is expected in 2015 and 2016. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Facts shared at stroke session What health condition strikes over 6,500 British Columbia each year? Stroke. What is the No. 1 cause of long-term disability in Canada? Stroke. Sixty-five per cent of all stroke survivors are left with some form of disability, from minor to severe impairment. For those stroke survivors returning to their home after they leave hospital, and their family caregivers, the question most often asked is, “Now what?” Not knowing where to go for help in the community, not knowing what is available and not knowing how to access programs can be confusing and frustrating. Stroke survivors and family caregivers need all kinds of guidance on living life after stroke; from how to cope when you can only use one hand and how to help a family member who can no longer speak to how to get the most from appointments with family doctors and specialists. The Stroke Recovery Association of BC is offering an education session for people affected by stroke in Courtenay titled Speaking Up and Getting What You Need

Post-Stroke. It happens July 18 from 1 to 2 p.m. at the Comox Valley Head Injury Society office at 102–254 Simms St. in Courtenay (between Fifth and Sixth streets off Duncan). To register, call 250339-1188 or e-mail vancouverislandsrabc@ gmail.com to register for the focus group. — Seniors Services Under One Roof

Tina Filippino, song leader of Letz Sing Community Voices, invites you to an evening of community singing July 17 at St. John the Divine Church Hall. What are the effects of singing? It’s not a secret anymore. According to multiple studies, singing is a cost-effective way of leading a positive healthy lifestyle. A melody a day keeps the doctor away, and you don’t have to be a professional. Health benefits are the same for a performer on stage or for the reluctant shower singer. Then there are the social benefits of singing in community. Just the act of singing songs from other cultures helps promote tolerance for diversity and understanding. Everyone, no matter what level of singing experience or ability, is welcome to come

and join in some spirited singing of songs, chants and rounds taught step by step in the oral tradition of call and response. If you have never sung in a group before, this is a great way to test the waters and see if you like it. The repertoire for the evening Wednesday at 579 Fifth St. in Courtenay will include melodies and harmonies from different cultures and traditions. Singing begins at 7:30 p.m. The cost is $10. Letz Sing is a growing vocal community in the Comox Valley and is part of the UBUNTU Choir Network which believes that everyone can sing and that singing is a powerful way to connect people —

Telus boosting Rotary Trail project in Courtenay Telus is contributing $20,000 to the Courtenay Rotary Trail thanks to Telus’ TV for Good campaign. The campaign gave $25 to the club on behalf of every new customer who signed up for Telus Optik TV in Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland over the past six months. The donation will be used to build the next phase of the Rotary Trail project, between 17th and 26th streets, providing a safe area for local families to walk, cycle, play and enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Trail construction is planned for August and September. The Rotary Trail runs along the railway corridor, and currently stretches from Fifth to 17th streets. “We’re so grateful to Telus for supporting this project and being such great community partners,” said Randy Wiwchar, the City of Courtenay’s director of community services. “The Courtenay Rotary Club has been a significant partner and contributor to the trail project since the beginning, and these funds from Telus will be a huge boost to their efforts. “It’s going to allow us to extend this popular trail and make it more convenient for our citizens to get around on foot or by bike.” “On behalf of Telus, I want to thank our valued customers who supported our TV for Good campaign in Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland which will help to promote a healthy, safe and fam-

ily-friendly lifestyle here on the Island,” said Ray Lawson, Telus general manager for Vancouver Island. “At Telus, we stand by our philosophy to give where we live,

Lawson added.
Telus and its team members have given more than $100,000 and 25,000 hours of volunteer time to charitable and community organizations in Courtenay, Comox

and our contribution to the construction of this trail will encourage all members of the community to get outside and enjoy their beautiful Island backyard this summer,”

and Cumberland since 2000. Earlier this month, Telus announced it is investing $10 million in Courtenay and Comox this year to expand wireless cover-

age for area residents and travellers and enhance wired Internet and Optik TV. This investment builds on the $6 million investment Telus made last year to con-

nect most homes in Courtenay and Comox directly to fibre optic cables, dramatically improving Internet speeds for businesses and households. — Telus TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER
