Snuneymuxw withdraws from consultation City of Nanaimo not revisiting decision to remove Colliery dams BY JENN M C GARRIGLE THE NEWS BULLETIN

Snuneymuxw First Nation has withdrawn from a 30-day consultation process with the city over the removal of two dams from Colliery Dam Park. City council was expected to pick a company to do the dam removal work at a July 8 council meeting, but a presentation from Snuneymuxw Chief Douglas White III prompted Coun. Bill McKay to make a motion to conduct further discussions with the First Nation and exhaust all of the possible options and considerations before awarding the dam removal contract. The motion was amended to include the 30-day window. But White said Thursday Snuneymuxw is concerned the city is not acting in the spirit of the motion. He said the motion implied the parties would spend the 30 days exhausting all possible options and considerations, but the city has made it clear no further work will be done to revisit, reassess or confirm information on other options, such as strengthening and repairing the existing dams, which have been deemed a potential threat to human life. “They made it clear they are not interested in doing any further work,” he said. White also alleged city staff have told the facilitator appointed to help with the consultation process that those who participate in the 30-day process may have significant liability by virtue of participating. “There’s no foundation to it as a matter of law,” he said. ◆ See ‘LIABILITY’ /4

CHRIS BUSH/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Brayden Pedersen, 16, prepares his tub for competition. Pedersen upgraded to a newer and faster tub and motor after his previous tub broke up in waves while rounding Entrance Island in last year’s race.

Tubbing spirit continues at Marine Fest BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

N

anaimo has a tradition, one might say, of long-running traditions and the Nanaimo Marine Festival and the World Championship Bathtub Race is working its way up to being one of the longest. 2013 marks the 47th running of the Great International World Championship Bathtub Race, which started out back in 1967 as a way to draw tourists to Nanaimo and, as a side benefit, promote real estate sales on Protection Island. Young tubbers coming into the sport help maintain the sport’s

popularity and inject new ideas. Brayden Pedersen was 14 and the youngest tubber when he ran his first championship race in the 2012. Unfortunately, his tub’s hull broke apart as he rounded Entrance Island, knocking him out of the race. He’s back at the tiller for another crack at the course this year. “I have a faster tub and a faster engine,” Pedersen said. “My tub won’t crap out this year.” In June, Pedersen managed third spot in a circuit race in Departure Bay while racing with a fractured arm. One thing he doesn’t know is how well his craft will perform in rough

weather, since all his time in the new tub, so far, has been on calm water. With a new tub and renewed confidence he’s set to take on this year’s competition – if he can find a pilot boat. “I need a pilot boat really bad,” Pedersen said. Pedersen is hoping someone will hear pleas he has made for a pilot boat through the media, so he can take on rival Ashley Martin, 17, who will run her fourth championship race this year. “I beat her every time,” Pedersen said. “I lap her every time we get in the tubs.” ◆ See ‘RIVALRY’ /6

Campfire sparks blaze near Nanaimo home BY CHRIS BUSH THE NEWS BULLETIN

A campfire and kitchen fire kept firefighters and fire investigators hopping over the weekend. A improperly doused campfire behind a duplex on Roberta Road nearly resulted in far more serious consequences early Saturday. Firefighters were called out at about 3:20 a.m. to battle a blaze that was working its way into the building’s exterior by the time they arrived. Ennis Mond, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire prevention officer, said four people had been sitting around the fire for the evening, but failed to fully extinguish it when they turned in for the night. An ember caught grass on fire, which spread to a fence, destroyed a small garden shed and was burning into the exterior of the house when firefighters arrived on scene. “If somebody didn’t wake up they would have had a major issue,” Mond said. “The fire just about breached the window in the basement and there are significant burns to the deck above.” Campfires are illegal in Nanaimo. Four tenants are temporarily displaced after a fire broke out in a home’s kitchen on the 800 block of Varsity Way Sunday. That fire ignited about 6:30 p.m. Saturday in a range hood/microwave oven combination unit above the stove. The person who discovered the fire was unable to call 911 from her phone system, so she went to a neighbour’s to call for help. Mond said another person knocked down the flames with a fire extinguisher. The four tenants living in the home were temporarily displaced due to smoke and fireextinguisher residue that spread throughout the building. Mond said none of the tenants are insured, but were provided temporary shelter. Fire damage was confined to the range hood-microwave oven unit.

Silly sailors Annual Silly Boat Regatta raises money for Nanaimo Child Development Centre BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

S

ome of the Silly Boats were seaworthy and some spilled, but all the sailors splashed back to the beach in high spirits. The annual Silly Boat Regatta at Maffeo Sutton Park drew thousands of people and raised more than $106,000 for Nanaimo’s Child Development Centre. “Everywhere I looked people were having fun,” said Michelle Kocourek, resource development coordinator at the CDC. “We’re trying to have a fun event, family oriented … raise awareness and raise money and we accomplished all of those.” Forty-six teams entered this year, busily building their boats around the park in the morning leading up to the early afternoon’s races. This year’s champion was the Huong Lan restaurant team, which constructed a paddlewheeler powered by two bicycle frames. “That paddle was so powerful, so every time it spinned it was like four people paddling at the same time,” said Tom Vuu, team captain. The Huong Lan team posted the day’s best time in the championship final, and it needed to, as it was pushed by the Generations Church team in a competitive race. Superette Foods placed third. Vuu said his team had a lot of fun at the Silly Boat Regatta, and winning

Nanaimo man dead after crash A 36-year-old Nanaimo man died after a motorcycle crash on the weekend. Ladysmith RCMP report the crash happened at the intersection of Hill and Cedar roads in Ladysmith’s North Oyster district at about 1:30 a.m. Friday. The motorcycle was southbound on Cedar Road when it hit a utility pole. The bike and its rider came to rest in a field near the intersection, but because of its location the accident was not discovered until after 11 a.m. when a person working in the field happened upon the crash site. The crash remains under investigation by the RCMP and B.C. Coroner Service and the victim’s name has not been released.

made it even better. “It’s kind of cool. I think it’s going to raise the team morale around work,” he said. “They’re going to be happy about this for weeks.” Silly Boat teams showed spirit on Sunday, win or lose. The Coast Bastion Inn’s vessel, a sturdy-looking plywood canoe, capsized before the occupants could even get their oars in the water. “I’d like to think we’ll be back next year, with a different design,” said Sean McKee, one of the Coast Bastion team members. He and his team members ended up swimming around the buoy and back with their boat; they didn’t show up to not complete the race, McKee said.

Liability issues remain u From /1 White has continually stated that council’s May 13 decision to tear down the dams this year, then rebuild them next year, went in a different direction than what had been talked about up until then and could potentially be the riskiest path to take in terms of the health of the river. He said Snuneymuxw continues to be concerned about the Chase River fishery and the First Nation plans to meet with the provincial and federal governments to express those concerns. “We understand that something has to be done,” said White. “I’m very disappointed that the city didn’t take this opportunity to find a collaborative pathway.”

Katherine Gordon, the facilitator appointed to help with the 30-day consultation period, said in an e-mailed response that she was appointed jointly by Snuneymuxw and the city with the goal of assisting the parties to work toward a collaborative outcome and since Snuneymuxw has withdrawn, she is also standing down. “I remain available to the parties to assist should they decide to continue discussions at a future date,” she wrote. Mayor John Ruttan said the city has spent more than $600,000 in the past nine months to research the options available and it is at least three times more expensive to fix the old dams than to re-establish the river.

“Every engineering report we’ve had has said that’s not practical and is the most expensive option,” he said. “[White’s] expectation seems to be we would do nine months of work in 30 days and come up with a different conclusion.” As for the liability issue, Ruttan said he believes staff were explaining that when work to mitigate the safety risk paused for this consultation, the liability issues remained and, in fact, increased. “The liability grows with every day we sit back and don’t proceed with a plan of action,” he said. “We’re in a position where we just have to do something.” Ruttan said council has yet to decide what to do now. editor@nanaimobulletin.com

City puts grant toward policing costs The City of Nanaimo is receiving more than $620,000 from the province to help pay for policing services. The money comes from the province’s annual Strategic Community Investment

Fund, which includes the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program and small community and regional district grants. Brian Clemens, the city’s director of finance, said the city does not qualify for the small community or regional district grants, so the $620,583 it is receiving this year is from the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program,

which returns revenue from ticket fines and court-imposed fines on violation tickets to municipalities that pay police enforcement costs. Policing services cost the city about $20.5 million and the grant will go toward that bill, he said. “We’re cer tainly grateful to have the money, but it’s only a portion of the costs,” said Clemens.

Firefighters and paramedics bring an injured woman to the Brechin Boat Ramp Thursday after she fell from a cliff while hiking on Newcastle Island. Emergency crews’ efforts were helped by Jase Nychyporuk, left, who was passing through Newcastle Channel in landing craft-style skiff. The woman suffered multiple serious injuries and was taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

Non-emergency number best for pets By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

No one, including first responders, wants to see an animal suffer, but calling 911 might not be the first thing people should do when they find pets left in cars. Instead, police are asking the public to call Nanaimo RCMP’s non-emergency number at 250-754-2345 where callers will be connected with a telecommunications operator who will determine the best way to handle the situation and, depending its sever-

ity, the operator will assign someone from the local SPCA branch or a police officer. This avoids tying up 911 operators with non-emergency calls. If an animal is in severe distress, it might appear lethargic and might not respond to someone’s voice and a quick response will be needed. On the other hand, if a dog is barking and jumping around inside a vehicle, a call to the SPCA is likely the best course of action. The number for the SPCA’s Nanaimo branch is 250-7588444.

Police also caution people not to take action on their own by breaking into vehicles. The RCMP realizes animal distress calls are time sensitive and will dedicate the personnel or resources needed to deal with those situations. “Perhaps the best thing to do during hot summer weather is leave pets at home,” said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. “In this type of weather, this is not something you should have to worry about. Leave your dog at home.”

post-secondary education system is relevant, responsive, respectful and receptive to aboriginal learners and communities. The aboriginal education department at VIU offers support for students to help create a sense of belonging for First Nations students, including peer mentorship, an aboriginal centre designed to resemble a

traditional Coast Salish longhouse, and elders-in-residence. “This funding will allow us to continue our commitment to working with aboriginal communities to create opportunities for aboriginal learners to access post-secondary education and, once there, provide them with the supports they need to be successful,” said Ralph Nilson, VIU president.

Tax evasion conviction nets community service, fines A Nanaimo father and son convicted of tax evasion will have to pay fines equalling the amount of taxes evaded and complete some community service hours. Graydon and Matthew Tyskerud, who were found guilty of one count of tax evasion each on Feb. 14, were sentenced in Nanaimo provincial court last week. Graydon Tyskerud was fined $14,186, representing 100 per cent of the taxes evaded, sentenced to 160 hours of community service and ordered to file his 2009 to 2012 personal income tax returns by Aug. 14. Matthew Tyskerud was fined $3,320 – 100 per cent of taxes evaded – sentenced to 80 hours of community service and must file his 2007 to 2012 personal income tax returns by Aug. 14 as well. A Canada Revenue Agency investigation found that Graydon Tyskerud failed to report income of $109,837 for the 2003 through

the 2005 taxation years and Matthew Tyskerud failed to report income of $53,588 for the taxation years 2004 through 2006. During their defence, states a Canada Revenue Agency news release, the Tyskeruds told the court their income was “gifts from God” and that, referring to themselves as “children of God”, they believed they had the right to arrange their affairs in a way that would exempt them from paying income tax. Individuals who have not filed returns for previous years, or who have not reported all of their income, can still voluntarily correct their tax affairs. They will not be penalized or prosecuted if they make a valid disclosure before becoming aware of any compliance action initiated by the Canada Revenue Agency. More information on voluntary disclosures and convictions can be found at www.cra.gc.ca.

Upgrades impact hospital parking lot Work began July 15 in the parking area near the main entrance to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital to increase the number of parking spaces for the disabled and to improve the flow of traffic. The main entrance will remain

open to pedestrians but the project will impact traffic and parking access in the area for two to three weeks. Metered parking stalls located in the centre of the traffic loop will not be available during this period.

Rivalry surrounds Great Race u From /1 While rounding Entrance Island in the 2012 race, the tiller cable on Martin’s tub broke, leaving her dead in the water, not far from Pedersen. “I still made it farther than him – to be exact – and I continue to bug him about it,” Martin said. Martin, 17, ran her first race in 2009 when she was just 13. Tubbing is a family affair. Her father has raced for 17 years and in 2010 Martin finished first in the women’s category and was the youngest tubber to finish that year. “I’ve grown up in it,” Martin said. “In December I got a bathtub tattoo on my shoulder, so I’m kind of addicted to it and the adrenaline rush.” This year’s race happens Sunday (July 28), but there’s a lot happening in the days leading up to the big event. One of the great things the great race spawned is the Nanaimo Marine Festival, which each year takes over Commercial Street and Maffeo Sutton Park with three days of games, competitions and music.

sel will host an open house at the Visiting Vessel Pier and the S.S. Minnow, of TV series Gilligan’s Island fame, will welcome visitors at the downtown boat basin. The Sailpast on Wheels Fun Parade starts at 9:30 a.m. Saturday (July 27). The parade route takes floats and performers down Fitzwilliam and Bastion streets to Front Street and finishes at Maffeo Sutton Park. “This year we’re saluting the 50th anniversary of Nanaimo Regional General Hospital,” McGuire said. Two days of festivities culminate in the Quality Foods Festival of Lights and Music fireworks show. This year it’s billed as Vancouver Island’s biggest-ever fireworks display. On Sunday, the great race launches at 11 a.m. from Nanaimo Harbour. Once the tubs have left the harbour, action for spectators moves to Departure Bay for the race finish. McGuire said numbers of racers turning out to tub from Nanaimo Harbour to the Winchelsea Islands and back to Departure Bay have held fairly steady between 35 to 45 entrants in recent years and he expects a similar number of entrants for 2013. Martin and Pedersen both stay active with the Loyal Nanaimo Bathtub Society, attending meetings and volunteering where they can. “It’s not just the one weekend,” McGuire said. “It encompasses a lot. Yes, we’re asking for volunteers on a yearround basis.” For her part, Martin has no plans to ever quitting tubbing. “I’ll do it ‘til I’m dead,” Martin said. “That’s what I tell my dad and my grandma. Once you’re in it you can’t really get out of it.” For a schedule of events and times, please visit http:// bathtubbing.com, or see the special Marine Festival section in this issue. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Victory comes with price tag You can fight big brother, and win, it turns out. That sound you heard Thursday was the shouts of joy from some 60,000 B.C. Hydro customers who emerged victorious after fighting against the installation of smart meters in their homes, crying foul about potential health hazards and privacy invasion. On Thursday, the provincial government announced those hold-out customers can elect to keep their analog meters until they break down – or their accuracy seal expires – or they can receive a digital meter with its transmission function turned off. But retaining the analog meter or getting a declawed smart meter will come with a price, roughly $20 per month to read the meter, as well as $100 to have a deactivated smart meter installed. Smart meter opponents have long questioned the potential adverse health effects of the new meters, with some claiming the meters are an invasion of privacy as it also gathers data about power use during various parts of the day. Others objected to having the smart meter shoved down their throats. Now the question is whether the 1.8 million customers who did have smart meters installed regret not having fought harder against the tech change. For some, this issue is one that shapes up to be another case similar to the introduction of the harmonized sales tax, a policy which residents of B.C. also successfully fought to overturn. For many people, it’s not about the smart meters or the tech they employ, but the manner in which it was introduced – unilaterally and without consultation from customers of the provincially owned utility. And like the HST, the province probably realized this was going to be a case where it could not win the public relations battle. The Nanaimo News Bulletin 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 overfishing of bluefin tuna is now widely known. Selfish contrarians contribute to the extinction of the wild bluefin now that their species is nearing extinction. And bluefin cannot reproduce in netpen conditions. On a happier note, the West Coast tuna fishery targets albacore tuna, a species with a high reproductive rate, so tuna caught by local fishers are not endangered at this time. You can buy canned albacore tuna locally caught, either from the fishers themselves or from St. Jean’s Cannery in Nanaimo. The taste difference from cheap cans of unknown provenance is unmistakeable. If you want to check the ethics of seafood, browse for blueocean.org and search the status of each species. And why wouldn’t we want to contribute to ecological balance rather than mindless destruction? u Marjorie Stewart is board chairwoman of the Nanaimo Foodshare Society.

Hydro ‘bullying’ smart meter opponents To the Editor,

Re: Fee proposed for meter readings, July 16. Well, it seems as though we categorize bullying as antagonizing one’s peers. We have to change that to the categorization of corporate government bullying also, regarding B.C. Hydro in its effort to charge the people extra that want to stick up for their rights in the smart meter catastrophe that is hanging over our heads, in Hydro’s endeavour to charge us free world citizens with a surcharge for reading our meter. The alternative is to give up and let Hydro and government continue to bully us. Why are they not giving us the opportunity to call in our meter reading as Fortis does? After all, Fortis and Hydro meter readers are one and the same, at least at my house they are, but wait, that would be a reasonable effort to show some initiative to get along with the public, not bullying them.

Dave Noble Nanaimo

Simple solution exists to smart meter impasse To the Editor,

Re: Keep your old power meter for a fee, July 18. We do not have a “smart”

To the Editor,

File photo

With meter-reading fees now being proposed, there are sensible alternatives to smart meters, argue letter writers.

meter. We do not want one. We do not feel that we should pay for special readings when a simple solution is readily available. Power comes into our home from a single wire which comes from a B.C. Hydro power

pole about 20 metres from our home. The simple solution to this impasse is that B.C. Hydro installs the “smart” meter on their end of that wire. I will accept the risk of a power leak along that 20 metres of wire.

Further, I should be able to keep my existing analog meter as a check on the “smart” meter. Why isn’t this simple solution adopted by B.C. Hydro?

Ron Bolin Nanaimo

Dam consultation period presents opportunity To the Editor,

Into the 30-day consultation period with regards to Colliery Dams we can only hope that city staff and members of council are taking this as a serious opportunity to move forward and not simply to placate Chief White who asked for this. Both sides agree to one thing, if the dams are removed they will be replaced, it is the process thereof upon which there is no agreement. On one hand a group on council have put forward removing the dams, and issued a tender towards such,

Bomb plot overblown in headline

with no firm deadlines for reconstruction or research on impacts to the Chase River and its fishery. On the other a smaller, by one, group of councillors, as well as thousands of citizens, believe mitigating the immediate hazard can be accomplished this year towards removal/ replacement, or remediation, of one dam next year and the second the following year. Focusing only on mitigation this year would allow the city to have all ducks in a row when it comes to removal/remediation.

Issuing a tender only for removal makes no sense when a tender issued for all aspects at once would save the city millions.

Gordon W. Fuller Nanaimo

Dams a danger, as history shows To the Editor,

In a 1971 San Fernando earthquake in California, the Van Norman dam came close to failing and destroying a community of 80,000. Later examination indicated that part of the inner waterproof core disappeared. If it was

full at the time or had the quake lasted longer it would have failed. It illustrated the dangers of all earth dams. Nanaimo is in the same danger area. Failure of our dams would kill more people than any of our buildings or bridges collapsing. I don’t understand why there is so much opposition by members of council and others. Did they not do their homework and why does it take so long to start addressing such dangers? Do local people have to die first?

Got an opinion? Why not share it?

Re: Terrorism plot should scare us, Editorial, July 9, This editorial leaned so far to the right we almost fell into Iran. Though linguistically well written, and not in any way factually inaccurate, much information was lacking. For example, national media states that the “plot has elements of entrapment,” and “the plot remains a mystery.” The primary suspect, a talented musician, clearly struggles with methadone treatment to overcome heroin addiction. What we really need to be scared of is growing poverty and reduced viable programs for life-challenged individuals. Not to mention propagandist views, that ignore the real threat of private banking interests, who would gladly distract us with other issues, so they can tail-spin our economy as it suits them. The question is this: would those who benefit financially from war go so far as to invest some of their extravagant wealth to create situations of terror? Because that is the thing that scares me the most. If the intent of the article was to Foxslap us through fear mongering, well I hope it missed its mark. And like me, I hope most Canadians would like more discussion and insight into solutions, not just headline jabs.

V.I. Raiders show character at camp I

FOOTBALL TEAM kicks off Saturday.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The V.I. Raiders did what they needed to do at camp – they learned. Nanaimo’s Canadian Junior Football League team held its main camp Thursday through Monday at Campbell River in preparation for the start of the regular season this Saturday (July 27). The team brought more than 80 players up Island. “There’s a lot of new guys, so it’s a lot of everyone getting the feel of the Raider way and it’s a lot of everyone learning their stuff,” said Taylor Flavel, running back. He pointed out that it’s not just the young players who are finding things out – returnees like himself are figuring out how to now be the leaders. “So it’s a learning process for everyone, this camp,” Flavel said.

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

V.I. Raiders running back Andrew Deleon is stopped by teammate Ash Gayat during a scrimmage Saturday evening at the Campbell River Sportsplex. Main camp wrapped up there Monday.

T-men lose, ending any playoff shot The Nanaimo Timbermen are out of the playoff picture, but not for lack of trying. The Coastal Windows Timbermen lost 9-8 to the Coquitlam Adanacs on Saturday on the mainland. The result dropped the T-men from playoff contention in the Western Lacrosse Association because the following night, the two teams ahead of them in the standings were scheduled to play one another, and a point by either one of those teams would eliminate Nanaimo. The T-men battled Saturday, holding an 8-7 lead midway through the third period before the Adanacs scored two late power-play goals. Jimmy Delaney led the Timbermen with three goals and four assists. Jake Emms scored a pair and Cody Bremner, Doug Langlois and Graham Palmer were the other scorers. GAME ON … The T-men visit the Victoria Shamrocks on Friday (July 26), then host the Maple Ridge Burrards on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena.

Pitching puts Pirates in PBL championships

I

PREMIER BASEBALL team sweeps Victoria Mariners in Round 1. BY GREG SAKAKI The NeWS BuLLeTiN

They say pitching and defence win baseball games. They say that at playoff time, especially. And that old adage was proven right again this past weekend, as the Nanaimo Pirates advanced in the playoffs. The Hub City Paving Pirates swept a best-of-three series against the Victoria Mariners on the road Saturday despite managing just three hits all day. Nanaimo won 1-0 and 2-0 to advance. The Pirates got outstanding

pitching performances, said manager Doug Rogers. Aidan Goodall threw a complete-game victory in Game 1, allowing four hits, and Luke Skingle tossed a complete-game one-hitter to earn the ‘W’ in Game 2. “Goodall and Skingle were almost mirrors of each other in their dominance,” Rogers said. “They never walked a batter all day and were ahead strike one, which is a key component of shutting teams down.” A turning point in the first game came in the fifth inning, when right fielder T.J. Mah threw out a Mariners baserunner at home plate. “It was 0-0 at the time, so that would have shifted any momentum…” said Rogers. “One run is huge in those games.” The Pirates finally broke

through in the top of the seventh, when Tristan Olsen reached base on an error, scoring Zach Diewert. The playoff intensity ratcheted up in the second game. Nanaimo loaded the bases in the third inning and Diewert came through with a two-RBI single. The runs held up and the Pirates became the only

Rogers said the limited number of hits is typical at this time of year. “They are going to be minimized because pitchers bear down and the defence is tougher.

advance was the No. 4-seeded Abbotsford Cardinals, who needed three games to defeat the No. 5-seeded Coquitlam Reds. A relatively young Pirates team is in the midst of its best winning streak of the season at the right time and will try to keep playing as though it’s got nothing to lose heading into the BCPBL championship tournament. “I’m excited for it,” Rogers said. “This is not the team I maybe expected to take into a final four, but it’s happening.” GAME ON … The PBL championships will be held at Abbotsford’s Delair Park.

Acme Timbermen win playoff series by forfeit

I

SR. B LACROSSE team advances to semifinals. BY GREG SAKAKI ThE NEWS BullETIN

The Nanaimo Acme Timbermen won their playoff series without even having to lift their sticks. The city’s West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association team advanced

to the playoff semifinals after their scheduled first-round opponent, the Royal City Capitals, forfeited the series. The Caps were supposed to come to Nanaimo last Wednesday for Game 1 of a best-of-three series, but advised the T-men a few hours before faceoff that they didn’t have enough players to put a team on the floor. Under B.C. Lacrosse Association rules, a team

that forfeits a playoff game also forfeits the series. “It’s not the way we would have liked to have started the playoffs,” said Shawn Swanson, the team’s general manager. He said the senior B club was anticipating some reimbursement to cover the financial losses of a cancelled home playoff date. But even still, seeing the series scuttled is a disappointment. “This would have been

a good series for us to get ready for the next two rounds that we hope to be going through,” Swanson said. The Acme Painting Timbermen instead got a break and planned to run a couple of practices to keep sharp. The GM said the team has been good this season in games following long layoffs, so he’s not worried about the guys being able to make the jump to

playoff intensity. “We’re pretty amped to play who will be coming, so I think we’ll be all right,” Swanson said. “Hopefully we get some fans out for those games. I think there will be some really good lacrosse.” GAME ON … The senior B T-men start their semifinal series against the TriCity Bandits on Thursday (July 25) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

The eighth annual Island Classic up at Arbutus Meadows Equestrian Centre not only came off without a hitch, it just may have been the best show ever. “Absolutely. It was a fabulous show,” said Joy O’Connell, event director. “We had perfect riding weather and everything ran smoothly.” Fan support, she said, “was really good too. We may have had the most spectators ever.” Played out July 11-14, this year’s installment drew 135 riders from up and down the Island and three from the Sunshine Coast. Nanoose Bay’s Emily Bau, 14, and her horse Coco Chanel finished first out of a field of 18 riders to win the .75 jumper derby division. “That’s a pretty significant win, and it was her first big win, too,” said O’Connell. Another local highlight included Chelsea Scruton from Nanoose and her horse Matchmaker who finished second in the open jumper stake category.

Calling

the shots

Country music performer Aaron Pritchett takes control on his fifth studio album BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

A

aron Pritchett is taking control of his music. For the first time the country musician is calling all the shots on his fifth album, aptly called In The Driver’s Seat. He is writing or co-writing every song and ensuring it adheres to the kind of music he wants to make. In the past Pritchett said he had to compromise with what the record label wanted, but now he has complete creative control. He’s taking the opportunity to tell stories from his life. “This time I did some of that but also took some personal stories and took them to pen and paper,” he said. Pritchett said it’s not an easy task to be in control of every aspect of creating an album. “But it’s something I wanted to do never the less,” he said. In The Driver’s Seat is set to be release this fall. Songs like Come Clean and She’s Goin’ Somewhere explore personal and serious issues. “Come Clean is one of those songs you can relate to,” said Pritchett. He said when people hear the song it reminds them of something they’ve gone through in the past or are currently struggling with, whether it’s telling the truth about something or other issues. Other songs such as Pinch

and Light It Up are highenergy songs with a little bit of rock and roll thrown in. Pritchett was born in Vancouver, but was raised in Kitimat. During his youth he listened to ’80s rock such as Van Halen and AC/DC. But there was something about the stories country artists sang about that he could relate to that drew him into the genre. In his youth he would go fishing, camping or on long bus rides to hockey tournaments. His life had that down-home feel that translated into the country world of music. What got him into country music when he was younger was Randy Travis. “He was a different country guy with a pop flavour,” said Pritchett. That interest led him to other country artists such as Clint Brown and earlier works by Garth Brooks. Pritchett has many awards under his belt including Canadian Country Music Association awards for Independent Male Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year, which he won in 2007 for Hold My Beer. Pritchett performs at the Queen’s Friday (July 26) at 8 p.m., and is followed by special guest Montgomery County. Tickets are $35 and available at the bar, Guava Apparel or by calling 250-7546751.

We would really like to make this an annual event.” The camp, scheduled from Aug. 19-23, is aimed at aspiring jazz musicians ages 14 to adult.

Even if you’re 40 or 80 yrs old, a total beginner or a frustrated player. You’ll be playing your favourite songs with both hands (and sounding really good) with my powerful & easy system! “It is so nice to be able to find a piano at a friend’s house and be able to sit down and play rich full sounding popular songs without any sheet music. Thank you for finally giving me the gift of music!”----- Gord Hopkins, age 61, Ottawa Ontario

Play Beautiful Music Without YEARS of Expensive & Frustrating Lessons At last, your AGE doesn't matter (most of my students are 40 to 80; average age 55!) You can learn how to play REAL music on the piano or keyboards fast and easy with virtually NO FRUSTRATION. Sounds too good to be true? Thousands upon thousands of adults all over North America have already discovered the 2½ hours you invest in this amazing workshop will start your lifetime of playing pleasure!

Play Hundreds of Songs Right Away! Like most piano wannabes, I endured years of boring and mind-numbing “traditional” lessons. Not fun! Later I also learned how to play chords. Not only did I finally begin enjoying the piano, I discovered you could

do lots of fun things like playing in parties or jamming with friends. Playing in church for example (where you had to learn new songs often) became easy! You see, unlike the traditional method where you worked on ONE music piece for a long time, with chords, you could play dozens of tunes right away!

Finally a Method for Adults…Even Older Adults, That Absolutely Works! This is not the same as other chord methods you may have tried in the past. Those methods still have you memorizing chords note-for-note and then work on learning how to play them. I discovered and developed rich sounding chord patterns that even total beginners can play right away with both hands. You'll be playing all your favourite songs before you know it! Since creating The

What others (coast to coast!) are saying!

Skeptical Husband Brings Along Conservatory Trained Wife! "I was assuming I was from Missouri so you had to show me, and you did! Even my Royal Conservatory trained wife was impressed."---Gary Cameron, Kingston ON Her Piano Playing Brings Joy to Her Family! "My elderly father loves to listen to my `private concerts' and it makes his day!" --- Jeannette Andrews, St John's NL Retired Lady Finally Finds Success! "I have tried traditional lessons and even chord courses and THIS beats them all by far!" ----Maria Oostenbrink, Retired, Calgary, Alberta Impress Your Friends! "People have commented on how well I play. WOW! I'm very pleased!" ---Larry James, Moose Jaw, SK An Enjoyable Way to Relieve Stress! "This has given me an enjoyable pursuit, mental alertness and a stress reliever!"--- Emma Villanueva, Richmond, BC

Join Paul Neill LIVE, Creator of The Amazing Chord Power System®

The only method in the world successfully teaching piano to primarily middle aged and older adults!

Amazing Chord Power System®, I have successfully taught thousands of middle aged and older adults all over Canada and parts of the USA. Have you ever asked yourself, "Is there still hope for me to play the piano?" Check out this amazing workshop and you will see with your own eyes that the answer is...YES, YES, YES!!!

2013 is Your Year GUARANTEED! Ever imagine yourself playing the piano to relax & relieve stress? Entertain your family & friends? Play for church or bible study? Jam with a band? You’ve waited long enough! You’ve sacrificed for the kids and everybody else. Now it’s YOUR TURN!

Just Look at All You Will Learn!

Amazingly easy chord patterns that almost anybody can do right away yet will make practically any song not only easier to play but sound rich & full!

YOUR “NANAIMO MERCHANT FLEET” WELCOMES YOU Nanaimo Marine Festival & “Great” International World Championship Bathtub Race Nanaimo harbour was the scene of a bathtub race extravaganza at the first race in 1967, Canada’s 100th birthday and its Centennial year. As the City of Nanaimo’s “Centennial Event” that year, close to 200 tubbers (in every type of craft imaginable) entered the fun competition and amazingly, 47 completed the 36 mile course to Vancouver’s Fisherman’s Cove across the straits of Georgia. Now the “Great RACE” finishes at Departure Bay in Nanaimo covering a grueling course that leaves Nanaimo harbour, circles Entrance Island, goes up to and around Winchelsea Island and then back to Departure Bay. In the early days it was indeed a challenge to just get past the starting line in the choppy confusion caused by an extra 785 small and large observation and escort boats in Nanaimo harbour. From the confusion of a first time bathtub race 46 years ago, the Nanaimo to Nanaimo “Great” INTERNATIONAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BATHTUB RACE and three day Nanaimo Marine Festival has evolved. Where once a select band of tubbers were the highlight, they now share the spotlight with many other land and water events which are often spectacular to watch. The various events throughout the city begin with the KICK OFF to the 2013 Marine Festival on Friday, July 26th with the opening of the LNBS Marine Festival Food Fair, Kiddies Harbourside

Playdock, Kiddies Karnival, “TIM HORTONS” Marine Festival Entertainment Stage and the children’s programs at Maffeo Sutton and Swy-a-lana Lagoon parks adjacent to the Nanaimo Harbour. Also for your enjoyment are many informative displays on boat safety, military, water sports plus many others all taking place until Sunday, July 28th. Daily events in the city centre include the Downtown Nanaimo Business Improvement Association (DNBIA) city centre Bathtub Days on Friday and Saturday on Commercial street, and on July 27th at 10:30 AM the annual “Sail Past on Wheels Fun Parade” takes place through the Old City Quarter and the City Center. The parade will be followed by the Marine Festival Food Fair, the Kiddies Harbourside Playdock, TIM HORTONS Marine Festival Entertainment Stage, the Kiddies Karnival and the Loyal Order of the Moose Bavarian Garden held in Maffeo Sutton park and various events in the harbour. In the evening on Saturday, Vancouver Island’s premier fireworks display, the spectacular “QUALITY FOODS” Festival of Lights & Music fireworks display, takes place in the Nanaimo harbor at 10:00 PM. On Sunday morning, join the thousands of excited spectators as the 47th annual “Great” INTERNATIONAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BATHTUB RACE starts at 11:00 AM sharp in Nanaimo harbour

for the approximate 1 ½ hour challenge in the straits of Georgia to the “PEPSI FINISH LINE” at Departure Bay. After the tubs leave, the excitement continues both on land and in the water with the Marine Festival Food Fair, the Kiddies Karnival and Harbourside Playdock. If you prefer (and remember you can do both) you can join us at the always spectacular “PEPSI FINISH LINE” at Departure Bay beach and watch the finish of the “Great” RACE and enjoy the many food and refreshment booths. Three full days of fun and activities for the young, old and in-between, family oriented and held in NANAIMO, the Sun-Porch of Canada, the Jewel of the West and the Bathtub Racing Capital of the World, during the always (well almost always) sunny month of July. So come join us July 25th to July 28th, 2013 and take in the World’s Cleanest Sport, Bathtub Racing and the 47th annual “Great” INTERNATIONAL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP BATHTUB RACE & Nanaimo Marine Festival. Another bonus... most of the events and activities are FREE.
