Parents raising money to keep program going Lindsay Chung THE CHRONICLE

A group of Ladysmith parents is turning to the community to try to help a program they value deeply. Parents whose children are attending the Infant and Toddler Program at the Boys and Girls Club are asking service clubs to donate to the program so they can help cover the costs of offering the program. This program is one of only two licensed infant and toddler programs serving the Ladysmith area, offering 12 full-time spots for children from birth to age 36 months, according to parent Cara Whalen. “This is a service that we rely on as parents, and it is at risk of closing due to financial challenges,” she says in a letter parents are distributing to service clubs. Recently, parents were informed that the program was increasing its fees to cover a deficit and shortening its hours, effective Sept. 1. Prior to the fee increase, families with children aged zero to 18 months were paying $900 a month, while parents with children aged 19 to 36 months were paying $775 a month. The new fees are now $1,000 a month for all ages up to 36 months. For families of 19- to 36-month-old children, this is an increase of 35 per cent, which Whalen says is not affordable to some parents. Parents are hoping they can buy some time to work with the Boys and Girls Club to find solutions. “The Boys and Girls Club is a beautiful and welcoming facility that our children are happy and thriving in,” said Whalen. “We want to ensure that they can continue to go to a place that they are comfortable with, as well as continuing to receive the

quality care that they deserve.” Whalen says they basically need to raise an extra $100 per child per month. “The nice thing is we’ve been told it would stay with the Infant and Toddler Program,” she said. “We’re working on trying to get donations and discussing getting some fundraisers going. We’ve discussed parents volunteering and parents bringing in snacks and art supplies to cut those costs.” As a whole, Infant and Toddler Programs are the most expensive to operate because of the low staff ratios, explained Boys and Girls Club of Vancouver Island executive director Ian Kalina, noting the requirement is one staff member per four children. Faced with a deficit, the Boys and Girls Club told parents it would need to look at increasing fees and reducing hours to narrow the gap, he explained. “What we’re looking to do is to cover our staff costs,” said Kalina. Kalina says it costs about $1,400 a month just to staff the Infant and Toddler Program. He says they’re also trying to pay their staff a living wage because they don’t want a lot of turnover, as relationships are so important at this age. Kalina has been meeting with the parents to figure out how they can close the financial gap. “The notion of us narrowing the gap is really about working together,” he said. “If we can work together, which is the sense I had from our previous meeting, the sense is we can keep this going. We’re not saying we’re closing the program — we want to keep this going, and so do the parents.” If anyone would like to contribute, they can contact Cara Whalen at 250714-4043 or caralynn17@gmail.com.

Crash victim identified

The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a man who died in a motorcycle crash near Ladysmith July 19. He is Jeffrey Alan Hainsworth, 36, from Nanaimo. Hainsworth was riding his motorcycle southbound on Cedar Road near Ladysmith in the early morning hours of July 19 when he lost control of the bike and collided with a hydro pole. He was deceased at the scene.

There will be participant prizes, as well as trophies for first, second and third place, and a couple of door prizes, according to Nicholls. Parents are asked to please bring a life jacket for their child and a fishing pole. If you have any questions, contact Nicholls at saltydogcanoes@hotmail.com. The climbing wall is back this year, and organizers are introducing laser tag at Transfer Beach Saturday from 3-7 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Another exciting new feature this year is Sunday’s sand sculpting demonstrations at Transfer Beach, sponsored by Howie and Colleen Davis. Mike Rebar, Kris Baker and Jai Kealy will create a sand sculpture to the Ladysmith Has It All — Friends and Neighbours theme. Barry Frech, president of the Ladysmith Celebrations Society, is looking forward to the weekend. “I think we’ve got a full slate again this year. We’ve moved it back to the long weekend, so hopefully that will work,” he said. On Saturday, the celebrations kick off with the Bullhead Derby at 7 a.m. and the Rotary Pancake Breakfast at 7 a.m. at the Ladysmith and District Credit Union (LDCU) parking lot.

Gillespie and Mangat were shocked more time was granted to the case that’s dragged on for nearly four years, leading to Pompeo’s Feb. 14 conviction. Pompeo and Hira declined to talk to the press. But Gillespie told reporters he was disgusted by another adjournment. “We thought it would be case closed today,” he said. “It’s time the public started asking what’s going on here ... I don’t think Pompeo will get any (jail) time; they gave the police preferential treatment.” Pompeo has testified he believed Gillespie was reaching for a weapon inside his clothing when he pulled the trigger, leaving a 9-mm slug sitting near Gillespie’s spine.

Sentencing of a local Mountie convicted of shooting an unarmed Chemainus man in 2009 has been moved out of Cowichan and set back another month. Const.

Crams open gluten-free bistro Announcement Nick Bekolay the chronicle

Ladysmith’s first gluten-free (GF) bakery and bistro opens its doors this week. The Wild Poppy Bistro will begin serving up a diverse menu of GF baking, sandwiches and light entrees beginning in late July, said bistro co-owner Kate Cram. Cram, who owns and operates the Old Town Bakery with her husband Geoff, said their decision to branch out into the world of GF cuisine stems from a sensitivity to gluten Cram shares with her two youngest sons. Kate and her sons were tested for celiac disease — a condition where the lining of the small intestine fails to absorb nutrients properly as a result Kate Cram plans to open the Wild Poppy Bistro of exposure to gluten —Ladysmith’s first exclusively gluten-free café — — in 2010. The tests this week, she said. Cram has already worked out came back negative, a recipe for an unleavened gluten-free cinnamon but revealed that Kate roll and hoped to craft a wheat-free version of her and her sons suffered famous, yeast-leavened cinnamon buns in time for from a non-celiac gluthe bistro’s grand opening.

gluten-triggered conditions, but changes to wheat may also play a role. “Wheat today is different from the wheat of a century ago,” Newell added. “Selective breeding and hybridizing different strains of wheat have been used to select for wheat with shorter stems and more gluten. That is not the same as genet-

ic modification, which inserts foreign genes into the wheat.” Boosting wheat’s gluten content is thought by at least some experts, including the Mayo Clinic’s Joseph Murray, to be the cause of higher rates of celiac disease and NCGS. Wild Poppy Bistro is located at the corner of First Avenue and High Street.

The principals of LMF Developments Inc. would like to announce that long time Ladysmith resident Duck Paterson has joined their team. After over 40 years in the newspaper business Duck has decided to make a change, which allows him to get back into working with people and being in town. Duck is well known in the area for many different community projects. He is also involved as a Life Member of the Kinsmen Club, a long-time member of the Festival of Lights, working with Ladysmith Days, Tour de Rock, Show ‘n Shine and other community events and also a Town Councillor for over 23 years. He also believes in being an advocate for anything that will make Ladysmith and area a neat place for folks to call home! Duck will now be handling the marketing of LMF’s various properties including Parkside Estates and Holland Creek Heights. He would like to invite families and friends to contact him at 250-246-0637 to view the affordable properties that LMF has to offer. ... PS: Duck’s mother named him Donald!

YOUR WORDS

“Wheat today is different from the wheat of a century ago.” Sue Newell, Page 5

e get why some observers wonder whether Bill Gillespie may be settling into his new life’s role of police shooting victim with just a bit too much relish. And we understand why some are prone to be giving police officers the benefit of the doubt and wanting the system to do the same simply because of the nature of their jobs. But this David Pompeo case has gone way beyond ridiculous. Assuming sentencing actually happens on its rescheduled Aug. 26 to 27 dates, almost four years exactly will have passed between the time Pompeo shot Gillespie and the time both will learn the consequences of the act. Think about it. Four. Years. That’s enough time for people to go from diapers to grade school, to get married and divorced, move to other countries and return, to battle and defeat cancer, or to lose that same fight. Yet it is not enough time for our justice system to determine what to do with a police officer who shot an unarmed man. Remember, this is not a complex whodunit where investigators had to sift through a dense web of clues and testimony. Two cops pulled over two men. One cop shot one man. Take the testimony from each. Fact check it. Hear the experts. Weigh the case law. Listen to the arguments. Make a ruling. Instead, we got a 20-month police investigation, followed by another 20 months floating through the court system, followed by another six months of waiting for sentencing. All the while, Pompeo remains on the public payroll and we are left to wonder who is paying all the legal fees. Is it any wonder Gillespie cries “preferential treatment?” Something needs to change. —Cowichan News Leader Pictorial

On my way through... Prior to 2009, I had passed through Ladysmith many times whether on holidays or on my way to meetings in Victoria. I always felt some curiosity about what seemed a lovely little town of “Heritage by the Sea.” Then, I received an invitation to find out what existed off the highway. In September 2009, I became the incumbent for St. John the Evangelist Church. During these past four years, the congregation and myself have experienced some ups and downs. Certainly that would probably be the story of the wider community of Ladysmith as well, as folks here have gone through some of the challenges of the economic situation these last few years. So what did I discover

We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada, through the Canada Periodical Fund (CPF) of the Department of Canadian Heritage.

Ladysmith came together before Christmas for the Festival of Choirs and the Easter Morning Sunrise service. I have also been recipient of this community’s care, compassion and support on a personal level. Three years ago, I suffered a major health crisis and had a quintuple coronary bypass surgery. Not only was I held in prayer by the congregation I served, but I was also prayerfully upheld by people from all over the Ladysmith community. And my experience is repeated over and over again in the situations

and life crises of others. Ladysmith is not a town — or a composite of buildings and streets — but a people who form an outstanding community. A community that celebrates and gives in so many ways — whether it’s Ladysmith Days or the Festival of Lights, or prayer and praise celebrations in churches, or hiking on the wonderful trail system and standing by the lookout near Heart Lake. I thank my God and maker for the privilege of having served in and with the people of this community. I know that in the future, I will have many occasions when I will be “on my way through.” And each time, I will have a prayer on my lips. Thank you God for these people — Peace be on this town.

Editor: Re: Ladysmith Stroke Recovery Group Three years, and we are still improving! The group meets weekly for shared activities, fun and a light lunch. Some have had a stroke and some are the caregivers who help and encourage their partners. A few volunteers help with activities such as setting up the Bolo game, getting out the crossword books, organizing lunch and participating in exercises to increase flexibility. Bethel Tabernacle provides the space in the downstairs activity room on Thursday mornings from 11 a.m. Comments from members: “We have all improved in our ability to walk, talk and laugh.” “We joined eight months ago. They have been encouraging, and we have a lot of laughs.” “I was pleased to have a support group in Ladysmith because after a stroke, being social is very difficult. This group was a safe outlet, as the others there can relate totally to my emotions and physical difficulties.” The group has placed posters in doctors’ and physical therapy offices, the Frank Jameson Community Centre, and local churches. We took part in the Health Fair twice. “A stroke hits the whole family,” says one of the original members. “This group is a good place to interact and voice our problems. The difference it makes mentally and physically in the people is amazing.” If you or someone you know needs this group, please call Ken or Flo at 250-245-8199. Bethel Tabernacle is at 1149 Fourth Ave., just along the road from the Ladysmith Health Centre. Caroline Davidson PR Volunteer

Kudos to Town of Ladysmith for swift action Editor: Wow!! When I wrote that letter to the editor about the dead cherry tree, I never expected Bob to be at my doorstep the next morning and the tree to be gone by Wednesday afternoon. Talk about the power of the press!! I did however learn that there is a process for the removal of a tree from the Ladysmith Boulevard, and I may have jumped the queue, for which I apologize to the Town of Ladysmith. Yes, I may have waited a couple of months, but there are definitely other jobs that need to be done that take priority

over a dead cherry tree. Whether the tree is replaced is up to the Social Planning Committee, and I really do not have an issue about it if it takes months to see if there is insurance or to make the decision not to replace the tree. I will follow the process. I was just glad to discover that the tree was not diseased but merely stressed. As you drive from Ladysmith to Nanaimo, you may see other trees with brown foliage that are also dead. The reason is unclear and may just be a sign of our times. Again, thank you to Chronicle and all of the concerned citizens who phoned to support the removal of the dead cherry tree. Kudos to the Ladysmith maintenance crews for their fast action.

Who is your cancer hero?

Kelly Everill paints the Wall of Heroes mural on the LDCU wall. Teresa McKinley

why we were there and why we are writing this. We are the 2013 Ladysmith Tour de Rock Committee. By now, 15 years after the first foot hit the pedal, the Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is a familiar tradition in Ladysmith and along Vancouver Island. Most know it as a fundraiser for pediatric cancer research and programs for children with a history of cancer. Many have and will continue to support it just for the idea of creating more smiles at places like Camp Goodtimes, where kids with cancer get to be just kids for a week. These supporters are heroes, the type of heroes that are the bedrock of small communities everywhere — real communities like ours. We are asking you to be heroes again, and to perhaps share heroes of your own in the process. Our committee has several fundraising events planned between now and Sept. 30. The first is taking shape on the walls of the LDCU parking lot. The Wall of Heroes is a mural painted by Kelly Everill. Paid for by the LDCU, it details a scenic view of trees and a path near a rock wall. This rock wall symbolizes the support of friends, neighbours and family that helps us cope with cancer. It will form the bedrock of the fundraising portion of the mural. For a donation to the

We introduced ourselves around the table. The truth became clear long before the circle was complete: not one person gathered in the Ladysmith and District Credit Union boardroom that warm summer night had escaped the gnawing monster that is cancer. It was Misty’s story that pierced us most. Misty Dmytar, a 39-yearold Nanaimo RCMP officer, a young Ladysmith mother of two, will ride this September with the Tour de Rock. A little more than two years ago, just four days after he was welcomed into this world, her son Griffyn was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Only parents could imagine the fear. Only parents like Misty and her partner can understand the fight. But children like Griffyn were

Last Short Close show of season features Lyon and McMahon Lindsay Chung the chronicle

The New York Post has called Shannon Lyon a “twangy troubadour,” and for the past two decades, the singer-songwriter has lived up to that name, performing and recording music throughout Canada and Europe. Lyon is back on the road this summer, as he embarks on his first lengthy Canadian tour since the mid-1990s. His 24-date summer tour sees him playing for people from Ontario all the way to Vancouver Island, including a house concert in Ladysmith this Friday night (Aug. 2). “Twangy troubadour” Shannon Lyon performs with Lyon will perform Ryan McMahon this Friday (Aug. 2) at the Short with Ryan McMahon at Close Song Shelter in Ladysmith.

Chronicles From The Past

July 1913 From the front page of the July 5, 1913, Ladysmith Chronicle: “Mr. and Mrs. David Page, of Oyster Harbour, paid their first visit to Nanaimo in 23 years, the worthy old couple being on their return journey from visiting friends in North Vancouver. David is 77 years old, and his helpmate possesses about the same number of summers. The two of them made their way to Philpot’s [Restaurant], the latter having purchased oysters from Mr. Page for 14 years. “Mr. Page was the first to open out the oyster business from which Oyster Harbour, now Ladysmith, came into existence. Needless to say, Mr. and Mrs. Page found many changes in Nanaimo after nearly a quarter of a century absence, notably the growth of numerous fine business establishments.” The Chronicle headline for July 19 read “No Hope of Settlement.” After spending nine days investigating the dispute between the mine owners and the miners on Vancouver Island, Thomas Crothers, Minister of Labour, returned to Victoria on the morning train. Mr. Crothers had lengthy conferences with the men affected by the “unsettled condition of Labour,” but was unable to find a solution. June 1938 The 1938 film Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm — featuring child star Shirley Temple — was on screen in Ladysmith

in early July. This hugely successful movie was held over and played to sold-out audiences. Apparently, children and adults could be heard whistling and singing “The Good Ship Lollipop” and “Animal Crackers in My Soup” as they strolled down First Avenue. Local residents were also excited about the opening of the Lions Gate Bridge (officially known as the “First Narrows Bridge”) linking Vancouver with the North Shore. A special C.P.R. excursion to Vancouver was arranged for local residents. The trip culminated with a viewing from Prospect Point of the C.P. steamship, Empress of Japan, sailing out of Vancouver Harbour under the newly constructed bridge. June 1963 The popular television program Reach for the Top ended the season with a special one-hour final match between teams from Victoria and Island South. After a hardfought and exciting competition, Victoria emerged the winner by a score of 600 to 515. The Island South runners up were Trygyve Hoy and Philip Lambert from Chemainus and Tom Aussenegg, Stephen Wallace and spare Margaret Jackson from Ladysmith. The final contest was the culmination of a series of weekly competitions involving 102 schools in British Columbia. Compiled by Ed Nicholson, Ladysmith Historical Society
