Nanaimo man assaulted by group of teens at river By Tamara CunninGham THe NewS BULLeTiN

A 33-year-old man was swarmed and attacked by a group of youths after he tried to stop them from throwing bottles into Nanaimo River, according to Nanaimo RCMP. Police said a man and his fiancée were at a Nanaimo River Monday night when he saw four teenagers

tossing bottles into a swimming hole and told them to stop. When he returned to his vehicle an hour later, he was reportedly approached by a woman who swore at him and slapped him, police said. He pushed her away and was attacked by the three male teenagers he had confronted earlier. The woman allegedly used pepperspray during the assault.

The City of Nanaimo planned to rebuild the Colliery dams at much higher standards than the province requires, prompting some to ask if taxpayers should pay for the best when second-rate is good enough. Nanaimo city officials announced this week they will take another look at options for the Colliery dams as part of a 30-day consultation process with the Snuneymuxw First Nation. The work will include a review of original cost estimates, which were based on rebuilding the dams at a much higher standard than the province requires. The City of Nanaimo had decided to build new structures with enough strength that even in a major quake, they wouldn’t need repairs. But the B.C. Dam Safety Branch only asks that the dams don’t fail. Park advocates say they believe the original standards were ridiculous and too expensive for taxpayers at a total estimated cost of $11.2 million. They question whether people should be on the hook for eliminating all the risk for the dams when there are less-expensive measures that could be just as acceptable to the province. Advocates, like Jeff Solomon with the Colliery Dam Preservation Society, are pleased the city is now taking the time to review the decision. Mayor John Ruttan said the city is willing to look over its studies but he is not convinced a ‘second-class’ dam will give taxpayers the best value for their dollar and says the ongoing process to review and consult is making the dam demolition physically unlikely this summer. u See ‘LESS’ /4

Tinder dry conditions prompt campfire ban

People can’t seem to get enough corn on the cob this season. Due to the popularity of the Thrifty Foods corn on the cob fundraiser last weekend, the grocery chain is holding it for one more day at its three Nanaimo locations. An armload of fresh corn on the cob – 10 ears for $1 – and a barbecue lunch is available at Longwood, Brooks Landing and Port Place locations. All money raised from corn sales and barbecue donations on Saturday (Aug. 3) go toward Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. Live music will also be featured at the Brooks Landing location.

High tide gave Bob Randall, right, and his grandson, Ethyn Hart, 12, an opportunity to paddle under the bridge at Swy-a-lana Lagoon last month. No rain in July meant Nanaimoites had plenty of opportunities to take advantage of the copious amounts of sunshine so far this summer.

Incentives aim to promote tourism By Tamara Cunningham The NewS BuLLeTIN

New cash incentives could be the ticket to turning Nanaimo into a tourism hot spot, industry experts say. Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation has announced a $125,000 cash pot for tourism attraction ideas that can help put the Harbour City on the map. According to tourism officials, Nanaimo is still being used as a stopover rather than a vacation destination. In 2011, 75 per cent of the people visiting the Nanaimo and Regional Visitor Centre reported they were staying in the area for less than a day – lending to reduced tourism spending in the region. With a new Vancouver Island Conference Centre hotel potentially attracting new visitors, Nanaimo has an opportunity to start building attractions that will keep people in the city longer, experts say. Dollars from the new tourism development fund will go toward tourism infrastruc-

ture, feasibility studies and sport tourism events that will trigger greater overnight stays. “When we did the tourism strategy, it was quickly identified that Nanaimo needs to give tourists more of a reason to come to our town,” said Dan Brady, chairman of the corporation’s tourism leadership committee. “I obviously believe this is a step in the right direction ... it could be just the catalyst we need.” Tourism leaders hope the financial nudge will get new activities to market faster and nurture ideas to fruition so Nanaimo can reach its potential as a tourism hot spot. A cash pot will be released each year, with some money set aside for long-term projects. Sasha Angus, CEO of the economic development corporation, said the project will not only provide tourists with new reasons to return to Nanaimo, but will also satisfy a potentially significant demand from groups arriving at the new conference centre hotel in future years. The company building the hotel,

SSS Manhao, estimates it will attract 70,000 tourists annually. “From an economic development and tourism perspective if you derive more overnight stays it unlocks more economic activity. That doesn’t happen when people just come for an afternoon,” Angus said. “This development fund ... will help create either new experiences or provide assistance for events or tourism infrastructure so people stay longer.” The initiative is welcomed by the Snuneymuxw Chief Doug White III, who said the dollars could help lay the foundation for a new cultural program on Newcastle Island. The First Nation dreams of seeing two longhouses and an interpretive centre on the island to help educate visitors on the history and culture of the Coast Salish people. NEDC tourism leadership committee is accepting applications for tourism ideas until Aug. 26. The first round of grants will be awarded at the end of September. news@nanaimobulletin.com

The open burning prohibition applies to open fires of any size, fires with a burn registration number, industrial burning, fireworks, tiki torches, sky lanterns and burning barrels. The prohibition does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes, or to a portable campfire apparatus, as long as the height of the flame is less than 15 centimetres. The open burning prohibition covers all B.C. Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Please check with local governments for other restrictions before lighting a fire. Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban, including campfires, may be issued a ticket for up to $345. Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for firefighting costs.

All open fires, including campfires, are banned in the Coastal Fire Centre as of noon today (Aug. 1). Officials at the fire centre, which includes all of Vancouver Island, portions of the mainland east of Squamish, and the North Coast, made the decision to ban campfires to help prevent human-caused wildfires. To date, the fire centre saw 94 fires – 58 were personcaused, while 36 were caused by lightning. This prohibition will remain in place until Oct. 15, or until the public is notified otherwise. The fire danger rating is currently high to extreme throughout the Coastal Fire Centre. As of Wednesday morning, the Nanaimo area had not recorded measurable precipitation during the month of July. With the current trend of warm and dry weather, wildfires in the region have displayed aggressive behaviour and required additional fire suppression resources. Coastal Fire Centre officials are also expecting lightning throughout the next week, which will likely produce more fires. Human-caused wildfires can divert resources and crews from responding to naturally occurring wildfires.

A 41-year-old man is in custody after police caught up to an antique wooden boat stolen from a Nanaimo marina. Nanaimo police say the caretaker of Anchorage Marina alerted police to a vessel tearing out of the marina at a high rate of speed at about 4 a.m. this morning. Officers used binoculars to track the boat until they could give chase in their police vessel. Several police officers caught up to the boat an hour later as it made its way between Protection and Newcastle Islands. A 41-year-old Vancouver man suspected of the heist was arrested and taken to Nanaimo. The suspect will be appearing in Nanaimo Provincial court today on charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000.

Less costly options sought during dam  consultation period u From /1 “I am a little uncomfortable at putting in a second-class dam,” Ruttan said. “If you save $500,000, but the dam doesn’t meet the same standard, is it money well spent or well saved? I don’t know.” The mayor said the city hasn’t previously looked at alternative standards to rebuilding the century-old dams, taking the position that “a stronger dam is a safer dam.” A dam built to a lesser standard could require annual maintenance and could fracture during a major earthquake, he said. Concern from the pubic about its procedure and calls from Snuneymuxw for cheaper alternatives, however, has city officials looking into less expensive measures to meet provincial dam safety

standards. The research is critical, according to Snuneymuxw Chief Doug White III, who believes it could yield significant cost changes. The original estimates were not affordable and he wonders if the city overlooked other feasible options for the century-old dams in the quest to rebuild the best. “If the standards and parameters were set and tuned into what the Dam Safety Branch and industry standards were as opposed to the (highest possible standard), it might open up new possibilities,” he said. Solomon has been excluded from consultation talks between the city and Snuneymuxw, but said he absolutely agrees with the need to take a second look at options for Colliery Dam Park, especially when the project has a “dramatic” effect on taxpayers. The City of Nanaimo had planned to demolish the dams this summer and rebuild sometime next year, but according to the mayor it is unlikely both dams will be taken down even if there is a desire to remove them. The latest research and consultation has shrunk the time frame construction can occur. And while it may be good news for opponents to the project, taxpayers continue to be liable for the risk until there is mitigation, Ruttan said. news@nanaimobulletin.com

Google Earth used to track kelp forests

I

voluNtEErS arE tracking dwindling beds near Gabriola.

By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

Citizen scientists are using Google Earth to track disappearing ‘underwater forests’ along the coastline of Gabriola Island. Help the Kelp – a volunteer organization of citizen scientists – has been carefully plotting beds of bull kelp on Google Earth this summer to help track the trend of disappearing marine habitat. Volunteers say the number of bull kelp seems to have dropped at an alarming rate around the Gulf Islands, jeopardizing an ecosystem used by small sea creatures, fish and birds. They want to know

why and help reverse the phenomena. The group will look at public education and kelp restoration work this fall. “This isn’t something that has been studied well so the goal is to explore it through citizen science,” said Michael Mehta, a member of Help the Kelp. “It’s like bird counts except we not only want to count and measure the kelp, but intervene and find out what went wrong with the ecosystem.” Efforts to address dwindling kelp started in 2009, as Gabriola residents started to take note of fewer canopies in coastal waters. Old timers recalled kelp so thick in the 1950s they couldn’t row through it, said Victor Anthony, a founding member of Help the Kelp. Kelp is much more sparse now, he said.

When something changes this dramatically ... we need to bring attention to it.

Other Gulf Islands have also noticed the change – a concern because kelp, like forests, produces oxygen for the planet and absorbs carbon dioxide, kelp advocates say. Hornby Island has started kelp restoration and Mayne Island has been mapping kelp beds along its coastline. Gabriola Islanders will take the health of kelp beds into their own hands this fall, when they plan to start

‘planting’ spores. New maps on Google Earth will help them track the success of restoration. They also plan to hand maps out to tug boat operators and logging companies so they can avoid large kelp canopies. Log booms may have been mowing down kelp, with dead zones found near Harmac Mill in Nanaimo. “This isn’t any different than a group of people wanting to save old growth trees,” Anthony said. “This is an ecosystem and when something changes this dramatically ... we need to bring attention to it.”

The city’s signature summer festival offered a full serving of sun and sea. The Nanaimo Marine Festival was a hit again this year, drawing spirited crowds all weekend long. Bill McGuire, commodore of the Loyal Nanaimo Bathtub Society, said he was proud of the work of his volunteer team again this year as the festival drew to a close at the end of Sunday’s Great International World Championship Bathtub Race. He said the work would begin right away on planning for the 2014 Marine Fest. “To see the crowds today, I don’t know how you’re going to improve on that but we’re going to try,” he said. The festival started with family activities downtown on Friday and continued Saturday with the Sailpast on Wheels Parade. “It’s a way for the tubbers to

Smooth sailing for police at Marine Fest The Nanaimo Marine Festival was smooth sailing for the Nanaimo RCMP, which says it dealt with no serious incidents. liquor-related infractions topped the list of offences during the Marine Festival weekend. There were upwards of 17 people arrested for public intoxication and “lots” of liquor pour outs, according to the Nanaimo RCMP. The number of arrests are very pleasing considering more than 30,000 people attended the fireworks saturday night, said Const. Gary O’Brien, spokesman for the Nanaimo RCMP. “it was very low key … kudos to the planners, but also the attendees of the event for acting accordingly,” he said.

The bathtub race itself attracted 41 entries and tubbers braved rough waters. “They’re a different lot, and unless you’ve tried bathtub racing you wouldn’t know what you have to go through,” said McGuire. “A lot of them persevere over pure principle. It’s quite a sport.”

EDITORIAL

Second rate might suffice It seems as though there was much more to talk about in regards to the removal of the Colliery dams. A 30-day consultation period between the City of Nanaimo and Snuneymuxw First Nation aimed to review council’s decision to remove and then rebuild the century-old dams at a later date. Snuneymuxw was concerned about the impact the rebuild would have on the fishery on the Chase River. But one issue that’s come up during those discussions is whether it’s necessary to build the best dam possible – or whether second-best is a viable alternative. City officials claim that a dam built to the highest standards would withstand an earthquake, whereas the second-best dam is likely to crack during a shaker and requires annual maintenance. It’s a lot of speculation on what would happen during an earthquake – the likes of which no one has seen on the West Coast for several hundred years. There’s no assurances that the second-rate dam would only crack – or that the best dam wouldn’t burst just as easily. As taxpayers struggle to afford the costs of city hall, and other cities around the world begin to declare bankruptcy after decades of spending beyond their means, second-best options are worth considering – or at least discussing. Perhaps Italian marble isn’t the best choice for a countertop; maybe you can only afford laminate. That’s not to say that building a kitchen is the same as building a dam. Lives and property downstream from the structure depend on it being sound. A vocal group of people want the dams rebuilt whatever the cost. Perhaps they’ll have more success convincing those silently opposed to spending the money on reconstruction if the cost wasn’t so exorbitant. A second-rate dam might not be the solution, but it’s one that wouldn’t hurt taking time to consider.

Further unilateral tax action by B.C. would only further increase imports, and potentially push B.C. firms out of business. Goodbye unionized private sector jobs. Dix’s last foray in question period before the summer legislature session adjourned was a demand for the government to order B.C. Ferries to build its next three ships in B.C. Leave aside the NDP’s uncritical zeal for state control, and their ill-fated experiment with aluminum fast ferries. The most likely bidder for this work is Seaspan, with shipyards in Esquimalt and North Vancouver. Seaspan is hiring almost 2,000 people to build ships for the Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard. It will be flat out to get that done, and the company president can’t yet say if it has the capacity and skilled labour to bid on B.C. Ferries ships, too. Seaspan has to operate in the real world of limited resources. So does the NDP, but it’s not clear if they can find a way out of the thicket of special interests and stale economic notions. u Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

To the Editor,

Re: Fee proposed for meter readings, July 16. That B.C. Hydro wants to recover the cost of meter-reading the old style meters seems reasonable. However they should also credit those accounts with the cost of the smart meter plus installation, that is being saved by continuing to use the old equipment. After all, fair is fair.

risks to the public downstream. In fact, one would expect that the downstream public would vociferously object to any such proposal. Experts can spend a lot of money analyzing and studying dam safety and coming up with different results but common sense tells us that a concrete wall poured 100 years ago has a reasonable probability of failure. If the failure is likely to cause a number of deaths then society has an obligation to act to mitigate the risk.

NEW SUNDAY BRUNCH

2013

Everyone has their own way of looking at risk. Generally when it comes to personal safety people are risk averse. That’s why we have consumer protection laws and industry regulations. From bicycle helmets to food inspection to aircraft maintenance we have institutionalized the protection of the public. While individuals often have a right to jeopardize their

own safety, rarely does anyone lobby to increase the risk to others. Yet this is exactly what a group in Nanaimo is doing in their efforts to prevent or delay the removal of the 100-year-old concrete dams at Colliery Dam Park. Dam failures are not uncommon. The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation lists 34 failures that resulted in loss of life ranging from one to more than 2,000. It is unlikely that any jurisdiction today would approve a dam for recreational use that had a chance of increasing

Parents, remove your children from the public system. It, like all of our other systems, is badly flawed and will only inflict the halfcocked, uninformed thinking on our next generation.

Harmonic melodies Musician Kim Churchill brings his percussive beats to Nanaimo to perform during a music festival benefitting Hospice Society

BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

K

im Churchill can’t remember picking up a guitar for the first time, but he first wrapped his hands around the instrument at the tender age of four. He knows about the story through his parents. “I can’t remember this, but I guess when I saw my mother play, inspiration just happened,” said Churchill in a press release. His father, seeing his son’s potential, enrolled him in classical guitar lessons when he was six. “My dad would say if you get an A in this next class I’ll get you a new Fender guitar, so I put two hours in the morning, grab my board, catch a few waves, and make the school bus by 8:30 a.m.”

He would then practise his guitar again after school. Churchill earned his Fender. Churchill is an Australian musician who creates percussive beats and hand tapping music on his stomp box, along with his harmonic melodies. He’s performing during the inaugural Newcastle Nissan Music Festival Saturday (Aug. 3), which runs noon-5:30 p.m. He’ll take the stage from 4:305:30 p.m. Admission to the concert is free. Money raised through food purchases and other activities, such as face painting, will be donated to the Nanaimo Hospice Society. The festival’s opening acts include Jupiter Jill, Eric Harper and

The Distributors. “Music has always been good … to inspire people’s hearts to give to a good cause,” said Harper about the fundraising concert. He performs from 3-4 p.m. during the event. Harper became interested in music when he was a child. He remembers being in the kitchen washing dishes when he was seven and hearing a song come on the radio. The song, which he can’t remember, drew him away from his task and he made his way into the living room and just stood and listened. “It made me feel so good that honestly I wanted to make people feel like that,” said Harper. The musician said his inspiration for songs comes from many sources. It can be from a cup of coffee, listening to music or just watching his young son pluck away at the ukulele he gave him. During the festival he’ll play some fan favourites including his songs Cream and Sugar and Rain.

Song bestows a musical hug u From /12 “Rain is what I call a musical hug,” said Harper. “If you’re having a bad day and need something to solace your spirits that’s what Rain is about.” Brett Bourcier, The Distributors’ bass player, said he’s excited about performing during the festival. The Distributors, consists of Bourcier, singer Kaylie Russell and drummer Austin Perison. Earlier this year the band was in the running for B.C.’s top teen band contest. The band will perform during the festival without their regular drummer. Perison broke his foot and Tom Morris is filling in while he recovers. The Distributors just finished recording their album, In Colour. It features eight songs written by the youths. “We make music that comes from us and not anybody else,” said Bourcier. The festival takes place at the Newcastle Nissan car dealership, located at 3612 Island Highway North.

Maillot shares lyrical knowledge Songs can pull at a person’s heartstrings or transport them to a memorable moment in the past. But where does a person begin to write a song that packs an emotional punch? Headliners School of Performing Arts is striving to help people learn how to write songs for various genres through a singer-songwriter course led by Alexandria Maillot and Doug Dodd. Maillot has performed at festivals around the world and in 2009 was one of the top 20 artists for the inaugural Peak Performance Project. The course runs Aug. 13-16, 12:30-5 p.m., and will be taught at the school, which is located at 2231 McGarrigle Rd. Participants will learn about lyric writing and how to adapt songs for different musical accompaniment and learn popular songwriting techniques. Students in the class will work on their own compositions, analyze contemporary forms and styles, and collaborate with their peers and instructors to develop their skills. Registration is $220. For more information please go to www.headliners.ca. For more about Maillot please go to www. alexandriamaillot.com.

She took her skills with the koto and combined it with her guitar playing to create a fresh new sound. She uses those skills with her influences from folk, soul, rock and jazz. To promote her latest album, Two Sides to Every Story, Stuart is performing with her band The Jessica Stuart Few, which includes Tony Nesbitt-Larking and Charles James, at the Corner Lounge Saturday (Aug. 3). T h e f re e s h o w opens with a performance by Josh Gellman at 9 p.m., followed by the band. The Nanaimo show is part of the band’s western Canadian tour before heading on its first tour of Japan this fall. The album, which was released this spring, was recorded live-off-the-floor to capture the band’s warm sound and the energy people hear during live shows. Stuart partnered with Japanese-Canadian artist Takashi Iwasaki to create the album’s artwork. The two inspired each other by sharing the art and music back and forth during the creative process. The Stuar t Few band received two Toronto Independent Music Award nominations last year and has performed during many Canadian festivals including Canadian Music Week, Islands Folk Festival and the Vancouver Chutzpah Festival.

bia’s representatives at senior B lacrosse nationals. The expenses of a trip to Montreal, plus a week away from work, makes the tourney cost-prohibitive. The Acme Painting Timbermen will have to raise around $35,000 over the next three weeks. They’re planning a beer-and-burger night, a silent auction and other

fundraisers, and hope for community and corporate support. In return, they’ll practise and train and try to get some redemption after a too-brief post-season run. “The playoffs didn’t end up the way we wanted,” Swanson said. “We sort of get in the back door here and hopefully we can do some damage and bring

some hardware home.” No B.C. team has won the President’s Cup since the Pioneers did it in 2004. The Nanaimo Luckies won the cup in 1969 and 1966. For information about sponsoring the senior B Timbermen, please e-mail shawn.swanson@ shaw.ca or call 250-6198680. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Football season intensifies as Raiders, Sun get ready BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The first week of football season was a sort of dress rehearsal, and now it’s showtime. Things go up a notch this week as the V.I. Raiders get ready to face the Okanagan Sun on Saturday (Aug. 3) at Kelowna’s Apple Bowl stadium. “You’ve definitely got to get more pumped than most games, because it’s obviously our rival and they always play us really tight,” said Dustin Rodriguez, Raiders re c e i v e r. “ T h e re ’s just something about them.” At practice this week, Raiders coach Matthew (Snoop) Blokker said he saw excitement amongst his guys, focus for the task at hand and a desire to get better. The Raiders were able to win their first game of the season Saturday in Victoria despite taking too many penalties and failing to click with their passing. Those things will need to improve, said Blokker, to earn a win in Kelowna. “We have to execute on offence a lot better than what we did and we’ve got to finish and get points,” he said. The Sun, like the Raiders, have a lot of newcomers this year. They have a young defence and a new defensive scheme, but they’re quick to

They didn’t win a single playoff game on the lacrosse floor, but somehow, the Nanaimo Acme Timbermen have qualified for the national championships. The Acme Painting Timbermen will play at the President’s Cup tournament at the end of the month in Kahnawake, Que. The T-men were swept by the Tri-City Bandits in the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association semifinals, but the Bandits and the other league finalists, the Ladner Pioneers, were among several WCSLA teams that declined participation in this year’s nationals. “Each year all the teams have to declare their President’s Cup eligibility right at the start of the playoffs,” said Shawn Swanson, T-men general manager. “You don’t know what the other teams are doing at that point. And we’re always 100 per cent willing to go.” Another semifinalist, the Valley Rebels, said they would only go to the President’s Cup if they won the WCSLA championship on merit. Swanson challenged that club to an exhibition series, but the Bandits declined. Basically by default, the T-men are British Colum-

the ball and adept at breaking up big plays. “So it’s going to be lots of short, quick routes,” Rodriguez said. “We’re going to have to be crisp on that.” Offensively the Sun have good balance, with some veteran playmakers. “They’re going to try and pass a lot so we’re looking for that,” said Ariel Fabbro, Raiders defensive back. “We had some holes in coverage last week so I’m looking forward to that challenge.” Blokker thinks the discipline will be better – it usually is against tough opponents, he said – but there’s bound to be intensity. “It goes up a lot,” Fabbro said. “They’re going to be competitive this year, I think, so we’re excited to go up there and play them.” A certain level of excitement is healthy, but Blokker will also remind his players that it’s only Week 2 of a long season, not a bowl game. “I don’t want to … put that type of pressure on our team right now,” he said. “We’re just going to focus on executing, getting better, play better than we did last week and carry on.” GAME ON … Saturday’s kickoff is at 7 p.m. There will be no Raiders TV webcast as Kelowna radio is broadcasting the game. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Pirates heartbroken but proud

I

RUNNER-UP FINISH only one outcome of baseball season. BY GREG SAKAKI The NeWS BuLLeTIN

JOHN MORROW/Black PRess

Aidan Goodall makes contact during last weekend’s tourney.

It was almost as though the Nanaimo Pirates had the championship torn out of their grasp. That’s a hard thing to take, said manager Doug Rogers, but what the ball team is left with is one of the experiences of a lifetime. The Hub City Paving Pirates finished as runners-up at the B.C. Premier Baseball League

championships on the weekend. They held a lead in the last inning Sunday in Abbotsford against the Victoria Eagles and had two outs and two strikes. They were one pitch away, but a walk-off single turned the championship. “We were playing our best baseball, things were going our way and it looked like that was carrying right through,” Rogers said. “And then the baseball gods decided to slam down the hammer.” To be one strike away from winning it all, and then to have lost, instantly, was tough.

Paddlers set for provincials Some of the Nanaimo Canoe and Kayak Club’s standouts will paddle for provincial gold next week. The club is sending a contingent to the Canoe Kayak B.C. championships at Burnaby Lake on Sunday (Aug. 4) and Monday. Cameron Antifave and Jade Minor will compete in doubles and singles canoeing and kayaking and Danielle Caron will compete in doubles, singles and fours with teammates from Fort Langley and Victoria. In other club news, the NCKC will host bantam and novice provincials Sept. 14-15 at Long Lake.

White Rapids host regionals Nanaimo White Rapids will be swimming for championships this weekend, and so will others from all over the Island. The local club is hosting the B.C. Summer Swimming Association’s Vancouver Island Regionals this Friday through Sunday (Aug. 2-4) at the Nanaimo Aquatic Centre. Swimmers won’t only be going for Island titles, they’ll also be attempting to qualify for the BCSSA provincials, to be held in Coquitlam in mid-August. For spectators wishing to catch the action at the NAC, heats begin Friday at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday’s heats will start at 8:30 a.m. both days.

The baseball gods decided to slam down the hammer.

Not only did the players grow, and become championship calibre, but they gained the sort of experience that will inspire them. It was the best game Rogers has ever been involved in, he said, and the worst. “The only thing I would trade it for is one more pitch. Still, the experience was second to none and I wish every kid could have the experience that these kids had.”

A whole bunch of Pirates debuted at the premier-league level, and though they struggled with consistency over the long season, they sure became a band of ball players by season’s end. “I couldn’t be more proud of the way the guys came together as a team, and the improvements that they made from the beginning of the season to where they finished off at the end,” Rogers said. “It doesn’t matter

Doug Rogers said it was emotional. Teenage boys were sobbing, something that just doesn’t happen. “It’s going to be tough for awhile, even for me,” he said. “The kids are going to take this pretty hard for quite some time, but it’ll turn into a positive over time and they’ll never forget it.” The best part of the story, Rogers said, is the way the team developed over the

Beefs & bouquets BOUQUET Orange roses to Dr. Marwood in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s emergency room. Thank you to a nice nurse on the third floor. BEEF To Nanaimo’s city administration and city council for the in-house hiring of the new city manager with a starting salary of $209,000. Our taxpayers’ money should have been spent for an open competition. It is time for a refreshing and healthy different approach to our financial affairs. BOUQUET Thanks to Wexford Creek for looking after a lady that was 93 years old until her last day. They are so caring and kind. They were also very good to family and friends, staff explained everything that was going on, which helped a lot. BEEF To the person who says broom is a delight. You obviously have never suffered with allergies. It is bad for those who are allergic to it and that’s a lot of people. It is also a very invasive species and choking out the plants that are supposed to be here. BOUQUET To the extremely helpful staff at Canadian Tire. Stephane Pilon and Desire went beyond the ordinary to help 2422 Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, C Scottish Regiment, get ready for upcoming adventures for the cadets. Thank you so much. BEEF To the drug store for receiving a prescription and two days later still a 45-minute wait to fill it and 10 minutes more at your counter. You could learn customer service from the staff at the front counter of your store – they are great and do an awesome job. BOUQUET To Amit at Future Shop for fixing three issues I had with my iPad 4 in less than 10 minutes. They were my issues, not those of the iPad – he was friendly, efficient and non-condescending. He came out from behind the counter and explained to me what I had done incorrectly and I was on my way.

BEEF To the provincial non-partisan office of the legislature for their deplorable ethics and human rights violations toward their Nanaimo-North Cowichan temporary field workers. It’s more than four months and have yet to pay allotted lunch allowances and travel reimbursements.

BOUQUET To Shannon, the good samaritan/ ex-soldier/ex-firefighter who stopped to help when my car ran out of gas, while I had my infant son in the car, on Brechin Road as a ferry was unloading. You truly saved the day. Every time I pay it forward, I will think of what you did for us

BOUQUET Apology accepted to the lady who almost ran me over in the cross walk at Norwell Drive and Victoria Avenue. It was a close call and although you didn’t stop to offer any type of an apology, I do accept your apology bouquet and appreciate you taking the time to write in and show your concern.

BEEF Flat tires and blown engines to the people who speed along Metral Drive, especially those on motorcycles doing wheelies and the black Nissan. Also, a beef to the police for not heeding complaints better.

BEEF To some yogurt companies that put carmine to give it the pink colour. I suggest you do a search on this ingredient to those who like yogurt. It sure made me sick once I knew what it was from a TV report. BOUQUET To Shane at Craftsman Collision. You quickly reattached my bumper and got me on my way. Thank you for your reassurance and help with what could have been a costly repair. BEEF To the person at the thrift store on July 19. My two long sleeve shirts and my son’s bag of toys (dinosaurs and mechanical man) got into your bag by mistake. A store clerk error and you decided to keep them instead of looking for the owner. Great way to teach a crying boy the finders keepers rule of life. BOUQUET To all the ladies at the LifeLabs at Rock City Plaza who really know how to enjoy their working day by having such great attitudes, wonderful personalities and a real skill in making our waiting time pass so much quicker with your pleasant greetings, wonderful comments and no-pain injection. LifeLabs is lucky to have you.

BOUQUET Thank you to Rob from the Jolly Miner Pub. That was the best burger I’ve ever had in a pub. You make your own patties and the generous amount of beef and cheese, topped with two onion rings. So filling. The bonus of winning the helicopter ride too was amazing. BEEF To the city bylaw officers for not enforcing the barking dog bylaw next door

Nanaimo News Bulletin B7

to my house. We have had to listen to this dog for over a year and they do nothing to enforce the law. It is 30 C in my house and I can’t open my windows because this dog is driving us crazy. Why have a law or a bylaw office? My taxes are obviously for nothing.

BOUQUET To the lady who found my boyfriend’s wallet on Bowen Road and went out to South Wellington to return it. The world could use a lot more people as honest as you. BEEF To the person who bought my son’s stolen bicycle. You probably pride yourself on the bargain you got buying from a desperate person. How does it feel to be even lower than a drug-addicted thief? BOUQUET To Norm and Ilene for taking excellent care if our dog Gracie while we were in Germany. Puppy kisses. BEEF Last weekend I had occasion to call 911 for an ambulance to transport my very sick spouse to the emergency ward. To my total amazement I was put on hold with a very nasal recorded message, “please do not hang up, your call will be answered by the first available operator in the order it was received.” This went on for five minutes – I was sure glad that I was not phoning to report my house was on fire. BOUQUET Yellow and pink roses to a beautiful surgeon, Dr. Peter Gutmanis, who operated on my arm in April 2013. Also thank you to all the people who helped me there. BEEF To dumpster divers. It would be so much simpler to put my recyclables in the bin outside my apartment, but instead I need to take my empty bottles all the way to the recycling depot so as not to encourage you.

Kenneth J. Curts

June 28, 1937 ~ July 21, 2013 Ken passed away peacefully at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital at the age of 76. His family wish to thank staff at Hecate Lodge, Malaspina Gardens, NRGH, Dr. Van Rensburg, Dr. Myronuk and Dr. Cobus Smith for their care over the years.

Mildred (“Millie�)

Anderson

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Mildred (“Millie�) Anderson (nee Haughton) July 21st, 2013 at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, just short of her 80th birthday. She will be missed tremendously by her daughter, Cathy (Ed) of Everett, Washington, and her siblings Dorothy Hutchinson of Langley, Pat Wright and Loraine Erickson of Nanaimo, John Haughton of Kamloops, and Barb Moir of Elmsdale, Nova Scotia, as well as by her many nieces and nephews, and their children. Millie was born in Kamloops, B.C. on July 24th, 1933, and was known throughout her life for her great sense of humor and quick wit. She had a creative mind and enjoyed all kinds of games, especially word games and jigsaw puzzles. She had an affinity for nature, and loved to spend time outdoors, particularly near the ocean. Millie lived in both Kamloops and Vancouver during her working years, and developed many long-standing friendships through her employment at Royal Inland Hospital (1970’s) and at Vancouver Vocational Institute (1980’s to 90’s). She retired to Nanaimo in 1994, and made many new friends through her participation in seniors’ classes at Bowen Park, as well as through her unique ability to connect with people she met in her everyday activities. Millie didn’t own a car, but with her knapsack on her back, she walked everywhere she could, even as her health declined. She believed in self-determination, hard work, laughter, and the importance of gratitude. She loved her family, and enjoyed spending time with them, both in person and – sometimes for hours – on the phone. Her passing leaves us with a gap in our hearts and a lot less laughter in our lives. There will be no service by request. Condolences may be offered at telfordn@shaw.ca Telford’s Nanaimo 250-591-6644

We wish to acknowledge the unique and passionate commitment of Dr. Steve Beerman, whose collaborative relationship with our Dad invited a personalized medical journey of dignity and compassion. We will forever be indebted to the dedication, integrity and the passion Dr. Beerman shows toward his patients. A celebration of Jack’s memories will be held on Sunday September 15th, starting at 12:00 pm at the Bowen Park Complex, 500 Bowen Road, Nanaimo. Flowers are gratefully declined.
