What’s next for Cowichan District Hospital?

The 2020 on CDH: Officials still pondering whether to renovate, rebuild on site, or find a new location Peter W. Rusland

s a new Cowichan District Hospital possible on the school board’s Beverly Street site? Call that property, and other possible places, a distant maybe, according to local leaders and heath authority brass. “VIHA has not yet determined if a new hospital would be built on the existing CDH site, or at an alternate site,” Val Wilson of the Vancouver Island Health Authority emailed the News Leader Pictorial last week. The school board office site emerged in recent weeks as a popular rumoured CDH destination after school brass announced plans in May to eventually move operations to a vacant school. “That site (SD79 land) has been mentioned as a potential location,” says an email from Rob Hutchins, CVRD chairman, “but it’s one of five I know of that have also been mentioned. The criteria has not yet been established for the site selection, and the process has not been finalized, so it would be premature to begin speculation on potential sites.” Selection processes could start in a couple of months, he notes. VIHA and Cowichan Valley Regional Hospital District brass are slowly sifting data showing swelling demand for medical care will outstrip supply of staffing, beds and services at the busy hospital by around 2020. Cpnsiderations outlined in CDH’s June 2010 master site plan have prompted initial scouting for a new CDH property. North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure said he assumed all possible places will be mulled for a new CDH, if it’s decided the aging facility will leave its Gibbins Road home. “I don’t know if they’ve considered that (SD79) site, but it’s not unreasonable that it could be considered.” Wilson explains site specifics are still smoky. “VIHA and the CVRHD are discussing what such a land search would involve, and what the expectations and needs regarding a location and acquisition process would be. At this point there is no formal agreement

between VIHA and the CVRHD.” She echoed Hutchins’ cautious approach about whether to use provincial bucks to either renovate the current CDH, build a new hospital on site, or erect a new facility elsewhere. “There is still an enormous amount of planning work to be done. At this point there is no provincial funding for this project,” Wilson says, “and we recognize the multiple capital priorities the province has before it, along with its limited fiscal resources.” Still, CDH is VIHA’s number-one major capital priority now that site purchasing for two new hospitals is underway in Campbell River and Comox Valley, she explains.

“Cowichan District Hospital is functionally obsolete, has aging infrastructure and does not meet the community’s needs as well as it should. “Given this, VIHA is actively planning for a new or renewed health care facility in the Cowichan Valley. This planning includes service requirements, a range of the number of beds, physical space requirements, adjacencies of other services, etc.” CDH’s master site plan poses ideas of rebuilding or renovating on the Gibbins site or erecting a new CDH elsewhere, but makes no recommendations as it projects the hospital’s growing needs. It does, however, provide

figures spanning administrative, and in-patient support, to future logistics such as security, dietary and biomedical engineering. Using ‘right-sizing’ data, CDH’s 91 beds needed in 2007 would rise to 104 by 2015, then to 114 by 2020, the plan suggests. Use of the Emergency Room, where 27,000 patients were treated in ‘07, is expected to increase to 32,000 by 2021. The plan notes CDH’s emergency ward is crowded, and undersize for storage and staff needs, patient privacy, and more. It’s a similar story in the operating rooms, where 2007 saw 5,000 surgeries; 12,000 were projected by 2020.

teroids often get bad press but they also serve a useful purpose. Our bodies normally make steroids to build cholesterol which produce hormones like cortisol, made by our adrenal glands and is important in energy and immune functions. Other steroids regulate our fluid and electrolytes. Our sex hormones, like testosterone and estrogen are also steroids.

Steroids are also used legitimately to treat diseases like asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Short courses of steroids are used to treat allergic reactions that might cause obstruction of the airways and they can bring a quick and dramatic relief of symptoms.

It is the negative sides of steroids that we hear about in the media. Some body builders and athletes use them as performance enhancers and they can cause serious side effects like cataracts, osteoporosis, immune system suppression, confusion and mood changes perhaps with hallucinations. Kidney failure, blood clots, stroke and shrinking of the male testes also can occur.

For standard medical problems, your doctor should be overseeing the use and dosage of steroids. However, using them for body enhancement is not a good idea and should definitely be avoided.

It takes five years to become a pharmacist. In that time, we learn much about drugs and their uses. We’d be happy to share that knowledge with you.

Mayor says fill used for diking project is clean Ensuring use of clean fill for Cowichan’s diking project is a priority for the municipality’s watchdogs, the mayor says. North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure said he had no reason to believe reports to the News Leader Pictorial about dirty dirt being used on the multi-million-dollar dike, then ordered removed.

“Staff are being careful about where soil comes from for that very reason,” he said last week, aware toxic soil could be coming to various Cowichan dump sites. “Staff haven’t said anything about (toxic) soil getting past them. It’s been a priority since day-one that only clean fill be used.”

Veronica has a good read on childhood literacy Allan honoured: Local teacher-librarian gets highest provincial honour from her peers

eading raises one’s IQ. Valley teacher-librarian Veronica Allan is a kids’ guide to those lifelong smarts. Her special way of sparing the reading rod, and spoiling children with books they enjoy, earned Allan this year’s Val Hamilton Lifetime Achievement Award from the B.C. Teacher-Librarian Association. “I encourage struggling readers by helping them find books they can read, and gradually move to harder books until they feel successful with reading. “I match them with books to do with their interests — if they’re interested in BMX bikes, I get them reading about that.” It’s believed Allan is the first Cowichan teacher to win the coveted Hamilton honour saluting teacher-librarians who make outstanding contributions to their profession, and to school libraries. “I’m beyond thrilled,” the mother of two sons said. “I go to BCTL conferences, and see people win these awards, but never expected one year it would be me.” Her Hamilton was announced by principal Heidi Grant during Bonner’s awards night June 26. “I didn’t have a clue. Heidi had a call that afternoon saying I’d won the award,” she said of the peer-nominated kudo. Allan, 60, started as a teacher-librarian in 1997 at Mount Brenton (now closed), then shifted to Somenos (now closed), then to Discovery elementary, then to George Bonner (formerly a middle school, turning elementary). “I only went into teaching at age 44,” said the holder of a UVic education degree, and a UBC certificate in teacher-librarianship. “I love my job; I have the best job in the world. I get to promote literacy by making the library a friendly, welcoming place, and making children love coming in. “I help kids wade through and access the enormous amount of material on the internet — and how not to plagiarize.” Allan’s also avid about supplying teachers with timely classroom materials, teaching researching methods to pupils, “and promoting school-library use to students, teachers, parents and the board of trustees.” But there’s a warp to Cowichan’s school-

Teacher-librarian Veronica Allan eased into summer with this year’s Val Hamilton Lifetime Achievement Award from the B.C. Teacher-Librarian Association, perhaps the highest honour the association bestows upon its members. library card, explains apolitical Allan. “In Cowichan we’ve had one teacherlibrarian in each school. Next year I’ll be doing Discovery and Bonner that used to each have one. “The (pupil enrolment) has decreased, but not to the point where we have one teacherlibrarian for two schools.” If students don’t have a teacher-librarian guiding them in their research, “they won’t have required skills for adult life to assess what they’re reading, and to know if it’s accurate.” And reading shouldn’t take summer holidays. “Teachers spend lots of time catching kids up in September; some kids have no books at home.” Fostering literacy through library use is paramount in Allan’s book. “The library should be the hub of any school.” But reading resources are imbalanced in

Cowichan, she noted. “In middle and high schools, we get the resources we need — elementary schools tend to be have and have-not schools. “Schools with strong (parent advisory committees) give money to the school, but some schools don’t have PACs.” Allan’s message to Premier Christy Clark? “It’s been proven in scientific studies schools with a qualified teacher-librarian, and a library that’s open, are indicators of student successes, but Cowichan Valley school libraries are closed half the time,” Allan said of tight budgets. “Teacher-librarians here do a fantastic job, with the time they have promoting literacy and increasing kids’ reading levels,” stressed Allan. Pupils’ page prowess improves with access to youth authors, especially from island and valley wordsmiths. “I read young adults’ books. They’re fan-

tastic,” she said citing John Wilson, Jacquie Pearce, illustrator Dean Griffiths, Sarah Harvey, Michelle Mulder, Mike Deas, and Susan Juby. “We promote anything that helps kids love reading — if they don’t love reading, they won’t do it.” Electronic versus paper books? “It’s all reading, but (books) have got to be available. “I get kids excited about a story, so they get hooked then read others in the series,” she said, praising the monster Harry Potter series and other strings of stories. “Many kids see the movie, then want to read the book,” said Allan, a fan of books by Ken Follett and Jonas Jonasson. “I watch children learn to love reading, and it doesn’t get better than that.” Allan will receive her Hamilton award in October in Haney, B.C., at the BCTLA’s annual conference.

C Hydro is offering an opt-out option to thousands of Cowichanians claiming smart meters pose dumb health risks. Basically, customers can have a meter installed with its wireless transmitter turned off, then pay manual reading charges, Energy Minister Bill Bennett outlined last week. Costs and timeframes for reading services and meter swaps were unavailable by press time. Further, folks already with a home or business smart meter can have that unit exchanged for a meter with its radio off, then switch to manual reading, explained Hydro’s Cindy Verschoor. Either way, smart meters must eventually be used by all customers — including 2,500-some locals refusing the new meters among Hydro’s 32,500 Duncan-area customers. “We want to bring the grid into the 20th century,” she said, comparing old meters to rotary-dial phones in the Blackberry age. “It’s a leap with lots of technology involved.” Hydro’s $1-billion meter program started in 2007, swapping analog meters with new meters it

But 60,000-some customers have refused the meters, denying property access to Hydro crews and Corix contractors. Some folks have filed legal meterrefusal papers with Hydro; others have locked their old meters with wooden circles or metal devices to stop crews from making meter swaps. Veschoor denied manual read-

ing charges would punish meter refusers. “Absolutely not,” she said, explaining Hydro is accommodating old meters that aren’t communicating with smart units. During the May election, some voters skewered Victoria for forcing customers to take smart meters, despite radiation fears among some. Verschoor disagreed. “If a customer isn’t comfortable with a smart meter, we’re not forcing them to accept it.”

hawnigan RCMP aren’t classifying it as a crime of the century but a simple reminder. That is a recent theft from an unlocked vehicle parked near Shawnigan Lake School. “The victim had left his truck windows unlocked and rolled down while working nearby,” explained Sgt. Rob Webb in a press release. “The male observed some young males in the area walking through and felt something wasn’t right. When he went to the vehicle he noted a considerable amount of cash and his cell phone had been stolen.” RCMP members patrolled the Beach Estates area and as a result identified one of the youth involved. The young bucks were caught red-handed and “remorseful and returned the full amount of money taken to the owner.” “Although we have not seen a big increase in thefts from vehicles this summer, this incident is certainly a reminder to lock your vehicles and keep your valuables hidden at all times,” Webb said. “This type of thing shouldn’t happen but does, the opportunity was there and a poor decision was made.” — Ashley Degraaf

Duncan among targets in alleged mother/daughter fraud scheme

A

mother and daughter from Victoria have been charged in connection with a slew of south Vancouver Island credit card frauds, including some in Duncan. Vancouver Island RCMP say the women, arrested June 12, are suspected of conducting hundreds of illegal transactions across the island totalling more than $90,000 between January 2011 and March 2012. “Credit cards were altered and unauthorized credit card data was used to purchase high-end electron-

ics, furniture, merchandise and gift cards,” he said. “These arrests and charges represent a significant success and disruption of ongoing financial crimes.” Christine Mauro, 46, and Karen Mauro, 63, face 27 combined charges of fraud under $5,000 and use of credit card data. They are part of a prolific crime group, police say. The women appeared in Victoria court June 13 and are under house arrest pending a trial date.Their next court appearance is July 24 in Victoria. — Daniel Palmer

Journalists have many reasons to be cynical Glass half-empty: Here are just a few examples

W

e read something somewhere recently that suggested journalists are the most cynical breed of professional. Not necessarily saying we agree with that assessment, but here are some reasons it could be true. • Journalists observe a court system reschedule a court date to set a new date to schedule a hearing to see if there is enough evidence to set a date to set another court date to determine the best date for a trial. Which will then be rescheduled. • They get front-row seats to developers pitching the finest in green, ecoaffordable, low-impact housing Would any of friendly, that, upon closer examination, looks eerily similar to the same $300,000 cookiethese tend to cutter vinyl village they plowed down a jade you? grove of trees for three years ago, except this time painted in earth tones. • They get to watch angry citizens accuse government of lack of public consultation only to learn those citizens have never opened a newspaper, attended a public meeting, or cast a vote. • They listen as politicians say they are all about listening to the public, then dismiss that same public as “not knowing all the facts,” “politically motivated,” or just plain “wrong.” • They absorb the scorn of deeply partisan people across the political spectrum who read a news report that puts their party in a bad light and react by accusing the journalist of bias. • They watch committees pay consultants good money to investigate a matter of community concern, pat themselves on the back when it is done, then leave the results on a shelf until another committee “updates” the process a few years later. • They hear “good corporate citizens” tell hard-working charities they will make a donation, but “only if the newspaper is there to take a picture.” There’s more. But there are also many good reasons why not all journalists become cynics. We’ll share those on Wednesday.

Seeing both sides of: operating public libraries The case for

The case against

Libraries have been wonderful community assets for a long time. But that time has past. Like its spiritual cousin the encyclopedia, the library has been rendered redundant by a little invention called the internet. When there is more information available more quickly at a lower cost online than in a trip to your local book centre, the library’s demise is inevitable.

The internet era is changing the role of libraries.

Proportional rep just a Dix distraction? Patrick Hrushowy

News Leader Pictorial

I

can see it now — the NDP is beginning the conversation that would ultimately show that it wasn’t Adrian Dix’s fault they lost the May provincial election. It was the voting system that did them in. Why else would leading NDP politicians begin public murmuring about proportional representation voting systems? Are they trying to change the subject? NDP House leader John Horgan recently was quoted by the Vancouver Sun’s Vaughn Palmer as saying flat out he supports proportional representation. “The first-past-the-post system is not serving the people of B.C.,” said Horgan. In its simplest form proportional representation means that if a party gets 40 % of the vote in an election then they would

get 40 % of the seats in the legislature. In this case that would not be enough for a political party to form government on its own. It would need the support from at least another 10 % of the popular vote that went to other parties. Our current first-past-the-post means the candidate with the most votes wins and this often means winning with less than 50 % of the vote. In the May 14 election the Liberals took 44 % of the popular vote, New Democrats 40, Greens 8, Conservatives 5. Horgan was joined in his public musings by rookie MLA Judy Darcy, who agreed with Horgan’s stance as soon as he voiced it. Darcy is no political rookie, having served for 12 years as the president of CUPE, the Canadian Union of Public Employees, and business manager for the Hospital Employees Union for six years. Her roots in the NDP are deep and what she has to say would not be taken lightly

The library’s role is not just as a repository for knowledge, but as a place where people can gather, learn and interact. Not everything is available online. Not everything online is dependable. Online does not have librarians to help and guide you. The internet may change the form of libraries and the way they provide services. But the role of libraries is too important to ever be discarded.

by the party. This is not a new position for the NDP but it was not part of the party’s election platform for the May vote. Horgan says he would like to see a referendum of the matter prior to the next provincial election in four years. But, why raise that now? It will certainly serve to divert attention away from what many would expect to be a very serious examination of what went wrong in what most certainly was a case of Dix and the NDP snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Even yours truly was preparing to accept an NDP victory and was taking steps to adapt. The NDP is on a tight timeline to complete its review of what happened to dash the hopes of the NDP governmentin-waiting.

The terms of reference for that review are extraordinarily broad and results are expected to be available to party members by the time the NDP meets in convention in November. That doesn’t leave a lot of time to bluesky about changing the voting system rather than a hard look at what went wrong. Successful elections require an enormous amount of discipline on the part of the leader. That means having a plan and sticking to it – no matter what. Maybe that’s all they need to look at.

YOUR TURN

Are Cowichan’s bureaucrats overpaid? “If you’re getting (publicly) paid, you should be giving something of at least the same or greater value. If not, you’re a parasite. It sounds like a communist plot where there’s no accountability.”

Joe Borkovic, Cowichan Bay

“I most certainly want to see results; if not we’re overpaying them. Under $100,000 I don’t think is too much money; over that we have to make sure we’ve got someone who can do the work, not just apply and get the job. “

Recent graduates show the fruits of diversity education

Find solutions, not opportunities to posture

Dear editor Amanda’s Marchand’s July 10 guest opinion about the reaction to the recent garbage burn on the Cowichan Tribes reserve was very well-written. Thank you Amanda! I would have thought that most people would have heard the old saying “People in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones” but apparently not. I’m shocked and saddened by how quickly so many people I expected would have behaved better jostled to line-up on what they saw as the side of all that is good and holy in order to throw the biggest proverbial stones they could find. No matter what the issue, finding a solution should be the focus. Finger pointing, name-calling, shaming and posturing are the tools of the smoke-and-mirrors gang. Cindy Giles

1980: development

About 200 friends, including Cowichan Exhibition president Stan Green, former Mayor of North Cowichan Don Morton and Alderman Margaret Roberston, gathered at the Norcross home of Miss Mary Waldon to celebrate her 80th birthday.

Duncan City Council approved in principle development of a property between Joe’s Tire Hospital and Steadmans on Government Street for a three-storey building with commercial/retail space at ground level and 26 apartments above.

s communities expand, infrastructure improvements grow in response. At least, that’s the way we hope things work. In real life, we know that’s not always so. Often, residents exert pressure for change. Take July 1956, for example. The Mill Bay Water Board initially resisted complaints from 121 users who charged their water smelled bad, tasted bad and stained clothes, kitchen and bathroom appliances. “We know there’s a problem,” said Doug Burke, board chairman and CVRD Mill Bay director. He said, however, users in his area who complained about the quality of the water they receive faced a choice of drinking “diluted sewage” if they went back to piping their water from Shawnigan Creek, and drinking water “with a little iron in it” if they continued to receive their water from the water board’s community well. That response wasn’t what residents wanted to hear. When they presented a letter to a water board meeting, their reception was equally reserved. Lynn Balding told the board: “We’re not going to let you think the complaints are isolated and if you are not willing to listen we can bring out the bigger guns.”

hronically restless, hyperactive, procrastinating, scatterbrained? If so, you may have attention deficit disorder, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, explain two folks living with the complex condition, discussed July 13 at Duncan’s Jimgerbread cafe. That’s where TV actor Rick Green — bumbling outdoorsman Bill on The Red Green Show he wrote and co-created — was hosted by Cowichan’s Brigit O’Leary and Cowichan Independent Living. Like Green, O’Leary has a form of the disorder. She hopes to launch the island’s first ADHD/ADD group in Cowichan “to promote education and have ADD recognized across all ages.” Green shared O’Leary’s outlook that education is key to identifying, understanding and coping with the condition. “It’s a spectrum disorder. It runs in families. Everyone may have a bit of it, but the question is how much?” Green asked from Hamilton, Ont., headed to Detroit’s ADHD conference where he’s a keynote speaker. “ADHD people check out when we’re bored, but we’re unstoppable when we’re interested; those who are successful find careers that work with ADHD.” ADHD clues could include early report cards showing inattention in class.

Dr. Heather Cook to join Dr. Anna Wang at Cowichan Valley Dental Group.

Dr. Heather Cooke was born in Ottawa but moved to Victoria with her family at the age of 13. Dr. Cooke completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Victoria with a major in Microbiology and then spent a year working prior to gaining admission to dental school at Dr. Heather Cook the University of British Columbia. Dr. Cooke became interested in dentistry after a couple of unfortunate events leading to many hours in the dental chair as a patient herself, so the next time you see her feel free to ask her about it! She enjoys all aspects of general dentistry especially children’s dentistry which allows her to interact with the whole family and have a little fun along the way. She strives to provide patients with a comprehensive approach to their dental problems in order to return their mouth to a state of health and believes in the importance of informed, patient-centered care. Dr. Cooke is very excited to be practicing dentistry on Vancouver Island which she considers to be her home. When she is not practicing dentistry, she enjoys painting, baking and occasionally attempting to mountain bike with her soon-to-be-husband Matt. She has also recently started learning about photography and is planning to learn to ski this upcoming winter. When Dr. Cooke isn’t on the west coast, she can usually be found visiting her family in the Maritimes. She looks forward to meeting you in person, works Monday-Friday and welcomes New Patients.

And on the Twelfth Night, the Bard created... Shawnigan Players: Expect fun and romance on the outdoor stage in Cowichan Station

owichan has a place for Shakespeare. That was evident in former Bard at Brentwood’s sold-out performances. It’s also been said by local theatre troupes, who’ve staged many the author’s works. And it’s not an exception for Alex Gallacher of the Shawnigan Players. “There’s obviously a demand here for Shakespeare,” said Gallacher, who’s staging seven performances of Twelfth Night as part of the player’s annual outdoor pageant starting July 25. “The play itself is really a rollicking show, as are a lot of his plays, and the characters are in love with someone, who doesn’t love them back. “As it was in Pride and Prejudice, it’s again about the difficulties of romance. And it’s very accessible and funny and very true.” Gallacher and players courted Austin’s classic tale last summer as the group’s debut outdoor show at Cowichan Station’s Gem O’ The Isle B&B. It was enough of a success, they’ve decided to try again with one of the Bard’s complex but whimsical pieces. “We decided to make it an annual event,” said Gallacher, who’s directing but also doubling as Malvolio. “It was a great success, and we really had a good attendance.” Audiences should be captivated with the Shakespeare’s crazy, confusing, and comedic love triangle that starts with Orsino (Nick Millar) pining over Lady Olivia (Laura Faulkner). Meanwhile, after a shipwreck off the coast, stranded survivor and aristocrat Viola (Kim Phillips) disguises herself as a man, Cesario, who the finds work for Orsino. As Cesario, Viola gets all warm and fuzzy over Orsino.

Bill Levity is the Fool and Kim Phillips is Viola in the Shawnigan Players upcoming outdoor production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Then things get really weird when Cesario visits Olivia on behalf of Orsino and Olivia falls head over heals for her (or him, as Olivia perceives it). “It’s a really complex play, with a great variety of characters and we’ve got a great cast,” Gallacher said. Other cast members include Bill Levity (as The Fool), Drew Kemp (Sir Toby Belch), Bob Norris (Sir Andrew Aguecheek) and Lindsay Anderson (Maria). Gallacher suspects those who missed last year’s production, will be blown away by the

site’s very fitting pastoral setting. “It’s an amazingly beautiful farm,” he said. “It couldn’t fit any better with the setting of the play. And sometimes the horses will come by. “We’re also hoping the cat will make a reappearance,” he added of a curious visitor who stepped into last year’s set, a rectangular, raked, wooden stage nestled among apple trees. “And as the two first lines at the beginning state, ‘If music be the food of love, play on,’ music is a huge part of the production,” he

DEATHS

Gage, Hanne Andersen 1962 - 2013

Hanne Andersen Gage, beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister, passed away, June 27, 2013, Secure in the compassionate love and grace of our Heavenly Father. She joins her dad Arne, and her older brothers Henry and John Andersen. Hanne was born in Brampton, Ontario January 23, 1962. Growing up in Harcourt, Ontario, she graduated from Haliburton High in 1980. As a teen, Hanne first moved to the West Coast, coming to love the ocean, and living in various communities along the coast including Vancouver, Sechelt, Courtenay, Quatsino, Port Hardy, Victoria, and Lake Cowichan. Hanne endured a long, difficult struggle with multiple sclerosis, living the past six years in Duncan. Hanne was blessed with the rarest of loves, the unconditional love and support of her partner Brian Gage. And she gave back that love and joy. Hanne and Brian shared eight precious years together. Her family and friends were with Hanne to witness and celebrate her marriage to Brian on June 22, 2013. It was a beautiful wedding, full of love, joy, and the laughter of her grandchildren. Hanne will be dearly missed by all. At Hanne’s request, there is to be no funeral. The morning of July 28, we will have a private scattering of Hanne’s ashes. Family and friends will gather for a Celebration of Life later that afternoon. The Multiple Sclerosis Society was a great resource and support for Hanne over the last few years. The family asks that you make a donation to your local Multiple Sclerosis Society in her name.

IN MEMORIAM

Audie Moore July 21, 1953

GILL, Gurdarshan (Giddy) Singh Oct 11, 1942 - July 16, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gurdarshan (Giddy) Singh Gill on July 16, 2013 in Delta, BC. Giddy was born to Kehar Singh and Ranjit Kaur Gill in 1942 in Duncan, BC. Giddy grew up in Lake Cowichan and moved to Delta in 1975. He is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Amarjit, 3 children, 4 grandchildren and extended family. Giddy loved his home being filled with family and friends and enjoyed laughing, joking, eating and especially good music and dancing. A man that lead by example and was never afraid of hard work will be missed dearly from all that knew him.

We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and the day before that too. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we will never part. God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts. Our hearts still ache in sadness and secret tears will flow. What it meant to lose you, no one will ever know.

There is a wife who misses you And finds the time long since you went And I think of you so very often But try to be brave and content But the tears I shed in silence And breathe a sigh of regret For you were mine and I remember A love I’ll never forget.

Hurdles cleared at top speed Chicago Bains: Personal bests at this stage are not easy to obtain

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

H

ow much faster can Chicago Bains go? Still faster yet, according to her coach John May of Black Creek. Bains is currently at a meet in Kamloops, along with other top valley track and field athletes, where the provincial team is selected. May points out it is very difficult to make the provincial team because it is limited in size to 15 15-year-old athletes, of which Bains is one, and 25 youth ages 16 and 17. That leads into the national Legion meet. May continues to marvel

over the performances of his star athlete from the valley. “Chicago has grown and advanced over last year so much, I cannot put it in words,’’ he pointed out. “It is hard to explain to people that in a race only 80 metres long with eight hurdles when she gets a P.B. (personal best) of even .01, it requires a huge amount of work — 0.1 in the range she is at now in the 11.50s is exponentially more difficult than those in the 11.70 to 11.60 range.’’ Chicago is truly on fire. “No one in the province has ever shown what she is doing right now in both her 80-metre hurdles sprint race and her 200-metre hurdles distance race,’’ May raved. “Some have done one or the other, but not

both at the level she is at right now. She is on the verge of major breakthroughs in both yet again.’’ May pointed out he’s trying to get her to peak at the right time of the year at the Legion nationals in Langley from Aug. 9 to 11. “The intensity of the focus required to run hurdles as fast as she now does is actually very physically and emotionally draining so we are very careful when she does so.’’ Bains ran 11.68 in the 80 hurdles at the B.C. high school championships, done with such an intensity that many wondered how she could surpass that. But she did. It went down to 11.57 at the Jack Brow meet in Kelowna and then to 11.55 at Swangard Stadium. At the same time, she bettered her 200 hurdle mark twice to 27.89 and then 27.53. The sky’s truly the limit for this amazing athlete. “People that know hurdles at levels far above this are even stunned by this,’’ noted May, who’s also working hard and getting great results from sprinter Taryn Smiley. “She, too, has far exceeded my original expectations.’’

Andrew Leong/file

Hurdling phenom Chicago Bains is far exceeding the limits of the sport. Even those at higher levels are amazed by her progress. At left, Bains, only in Grade 9 at the time, obtained the No. 9 position for valley youth athletes of the year in 2012 and got a chance to meet Canadian Olympians Kyle Hamilton and Hilary Stellingwerff.

Powerful players join forces for some power-packed performances during the Hoops For Haiti three-on-three basketball tournament Saturday at Duncan Christian School. Above, Jim Brandsma drives to the hoop guarded by John Climie. Right, Chaz Milne and Michael Brandsma go for the rebound during game action. Justin Croswell organized the event on behalf of the North Cowichan Alliance Church. “It’s to raise money for a generator for a school down in Haiti that doesn’t have power,’’ said Croswell. His call for players was answered to support the cause. “It’s all local talent,’’ said Croswell. All the players were winners just for taking part.

he Duncan Nationals Midget AA baseball squad took two of three games from the Nanaimo Junior Pirates Premier team, as it continued preparations for the provincial championships coming up in Duncan during early August. The Nationals beat the Pirates 7-1 in Nanaimo last Wednesday. Strong pitching by Jordy Frost, Cameron Frame and Andrew Larson limited the Pirates to only two hits and one earned run. A double by Larson knocked in Frame for the Nationals’ first run in the first inning. Two in the second came after a Max Winter line drive up the middle to get things going and Reiya Tomida crossed the plate to finish the rally. The Nationals added single runs in the third and fifth. In the seventh, Blair Robertson’s single was followed by a towering double off the base of the wall by Zach Komst and a triple by Jordy Frost for two more runs. Defensive play in the outfield was solid from Adam Fukakusa, Adam Sakuma and Wes Smith.

The same two teams split a doubleheader Sunday at Duncan’s Evans Park. The Pirates won the first game 12-9. “The normally solid defence of the Nationals disappeared in the third inning, as errors led to three Pirate runs,’’ noted head coach Jim Frost. The Nationals got two back in the fourth on a two-out double by Aaron Frost and then tied the game in the fifth on a Robertson home run. Errors plagued the Nationals again in the sixth, as the Pirates scored six. The Nationals clawed back again in the bottom of the inning with five on singles by Sakuma, Larson, Komst, Jordy Frost and doubles from Aaron Frost and Alex Boos. “Although the comeback fell short, I was proud of how the kids battled back,’’ noted Jim Frost. The Nationals cruised to a 9-1 lead after four innings in the second game and posted a 10-7 victory. Only one unearned run was scored against Nationals’ starter Larson over five innings. He also hit a triple in the second to drive in two runs and Tomida went three-for-three at the plate. The Nationals produced runs from throughout the lineup and the defence was strong.

Cannon erupts to lead Cowichan to victory

Scoring explosion: Four-game drought finally ends against Albion Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

owichan finally snapped a four-game losing streak in the Victoria and District Cricket Association. Cowichan broke out in a big way Saturday at Victoria’s Beacon Hill Park, beating Albion by 30 runs. Last time the teams met, Cowichan lost by 93 runs. It was another uphill battle for Cowichan, as it batted first against the second-place team in the league. Two wickets fell with the score at 29. At that point, the reliable Steve Cannon was joined by Hassaan Rahim to produce one of the best third-wicket stands of the year. Cannon scored 78 and Rahim 55, as the total reached 166 when the partnership ended. The lower order batsmen weren’t quite as successful, but Mits Nakagawa added 14 and Dave Norrish 13 to bring the tally to 217 for nine. Cowichan’s bowlers put on a muchimproved performance to hold Albion to 187 all out. All seven bowlers kept the rate to under four runs an over and took wickets regularly at the same time. The previous week, Cowichan lost a tight one by five wickets to Alcos B at

Windsor Park in Victoria. Alcos B went into the match in top spot and with only one loss so Cowichan knew it would be a tall order when it won the toss and decided to Andrew Leong/file bat first. It’s bombs away for Steve The team had Cannon. a nervous start with 65 runs for the loss of four wickets, but came alive with Cannon and Clayton Bodkyn in partnership. Cannon departed for 72 and Bodkyn let loose on the opposition for an undefeated 57 that included five sixes. Cowichan’s respectable 191 for eight at the end of the 45 overs gave the team a realistic chance of winning. Dushyant Kohli punished the Cowichan bowlers for 143 not out and virtually won the game on his own. Charles Swart was the most successful of the bowlers, taking three for 42. Alcos made 197 for five to claim the win. Next action for Cowichan is Sunday at Shawnigan Lake against Oak Bay.

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.

Purinton signs on for three years as coach of the Islanders Dale Purinton has signed a contract extension to coach the Kerry Park Islanders of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League through the 2015-16 season. “Dale is an outstanding coach and we are absolutely thrilled to have him stay on with our club,’’ stated Islanders’ gen-

eral manager and owner Mark Osmond. The former National Hockey League player took over the team last December on an interim basis. The decision to sign Purinton to a three-year term was an easy one for Osmond. “Dale is committed not only to our organization, but the community,’’

Osmond indicated. “His knowledge, passion, teaching ability and positive enthusiasm are beyond exceptional. “We believe that stability and continuity are important factors in achieving our long-term goal of developing young players for the next level and becoming perennial league contenders.’’

change is certainly better than a rest for the Cowichan Challenge triathlon. Sunday’s event was rerouted due to the replacement of the bridge over the Chemainus River. Cyclists still went partly in that direction but then looped back through the Chemainus and Saltair areas. “The new bike course is awesome,’’ wrote Sarah Malerby on the CeeVacs Road Runners website. “It could be described as flowy with absolutely spectacular ocean scenery.’’ The race was once cancelled entirely because of dangerous conditions on the bridge that’s currently being replaced. But organizers didn’t want to do that again because it takes so long to build the entry field back up again. Thus, the new bike route was pitched as an alternative that turned out to be a great choice. “Everyone really liked it,’’ said race director Janine Frank. “We needed a lot more volunteers because so many roads crossed it.’’ That stretched the budget a bit with 25 volunteers and 10 paid required to cover the course compared to 20 volunteers and two paid people before, but well worth it. The new route offered the same intensity as the previous one. “It was still a challenge,’’ said Frank. “There was lots of hills.’’ Another interesting point, “because it was out-andback, they got to see other cyclists,’’ added Frank. Overall, the event was a huge success — a complete sell-out with 260 participants divided among the sprint (500 metre swim, 16 km bike, five km run), main event (1,000 m swim, 34 km bike, nine km run) and the sprint and main relays. “It was awesome, as usual,’’ said Frank. “Everything went off without a hitch. It was sold out for the first time in quite a few years which is very exciting.’’ She praised the contributions of the event sponsors — Wilderness Kayak for the swim, Cycle Therapy for the cycling and Front Runners for the run. Dave Trill was the overall winner of the main event in 1:42:25. He also ranked first in each of the three phases with a swim of 15:03, bike of 50:10 and run of 35:48. Sean Clark finished second in 1:45:19, with Jim Nelson (1:51:05), Matthew Leroy (1:56:02), Balint Falvai (1:56:32), Jason Hare (1:56:49), Bryan Rehill (1:57:21).
