community effort.” Effort is something Gould is no stranger to. After investing upwards of $50,000 in his $1 car – and that was 10 years ago – he keeps it stored in the garage of his Beach Drive home. With the number of seagulls who would give the Caddy a new “paint job,” Gould is understandably protective of the vehicle. His refurbishments caught the eye of international car lovers and a feature was published about Gould and his car in The Self Starter, a Cadillac fan magazine, in 2011.
Oak Bay staff are digging deeper into an online security breach this week. The district immediately shut down one of its online services to protect residents’ personal information after learning of the potential breach July 22, but did not notify residents until late last week. “We don’t have a full explanation at this point,” said Mayor Nils Jensen. Residents who use MyDistrict, an online service for tax, utility, bylaw notices, dog and business licence information via oakbay.ca, are now being warned to change their password. “We weren’t specifically targeted, it seems to be somewhat Nils Jensen widespread … there’s no evidence of fraudulent activity on anyone’s bank account,” Jensen added. The security breach was with a separately hosted and managed site at online.oakbay.ca. “It’s a subdomain of the Oak Bay site,” said Peter Knapp, CEO of Upanup Studios, which designed and hosts oakbay.ca. “It’s a separate service from the Oak Bay site which exists on a separate server.” Several other municipalities, including the City of Victoria, experienced unauthorized access to their MyDistrict municipal services portal, which was caused by faulty software, on the same date. The data that was potentially at risk includes personal FINE CUSTOM JEWELLERS information of residents who use pre-authorized payment plans for their tax and utility bills. The online service does not collect highly sensitive information such as credit or debit card information, social insurance numbers or drivers’ licence information.

It was 1969 when Lee Gould’s father handed him the keys to his 1949 Cadillac Club Coupe and said he could have it for $1 – so long as Gould promised not to “rod it out.” “That was the last time I saw him,” says Gould, now 72. “He appeared in my driveway to ‘sell’ me the car, then he died two weeks later … but I’ve
kept my promise.” Gould is one of the hundreds of vehicle veterans with stories as intricate as the cars shown at the Oak Bay Collector Car Festival – and he, and his Cadillac, will be back again this year. The event, which takes place Sunday, Aug. 11, will close off part of Oak Bay Avenue for the expected 300 collectable cars representing a range of eras from some of the earliest classic motors to some impressively colourful hot rods. “People love their cars in Oak Bay, and that street offers the perfect ambience for it,” says Ken Agate, who founded the show. “It’s really become a legacy in this area, it’s a combined

Brush up with local artists Bowker Creek Brush Up paints colours of youth support Danielle Pope News staff
Art fanatics will be brushing up on all Oak Bay has to offer, with the eighth-annual Bowker Creek Brush Up, happening Sunday, Aug. 11, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. More than 40 artists will display and sell their art at the event, which is set up along Bowker Creek between Oak Bay High school and Hampshire Road. Since 2005, the free event has offered artistic displays, demonstrations by featured international artists, music and refreshments to those who support the community project.

“You don’t see a lot of young purists these days,” says Gould. “There are people who want to rod up their cars, lower them, mod the engine, throw in huge stereos and turn them into something else, but there’s a lot of beauty in ‘original.’” Gould attributes his love of cars, and his knowhow, to John Damgaard – a man who owned the Cadboro Bay Texaco station in the early ‘60s. As a young man working his first “real” job at age 19, Gould says Damgaard taught him everything he knew, from how to manage money and handle a vehicle to work ethic. “He always said, ‘You run to the pumps, you never walk, because that’s service, and that’s what makes people come back,’” says Gould. “He’s the reason I knew how to work on these cars.” Yes, plural. Since his first purchase, Gould was offered a twin Caddy by a friend desperate to sell. Though he says he hardly needed two, the lover in him accepted the offer which, “let’s just say, it wasn’t a dollar.” While the newest purchase is still a work-inprogress, Gould has shown his beauties since 2001 all around the Island, at shows as near as next door and as far away as Qualicum Beach. He’s become a fixture at the Oak Bay show, and says it’s his main highlight every year. That’s exactly why Agate started the show 13 years ago. The former owner of the Blethering Place Tea Room & Restaurant knew there was a desire for the show with the number of people he saw bringing their special cars out for a special meal. With his own collector’s 1938 Dodge Brothers that he brought over from New Zealand, Agate was tickled by the idea. Other businesses on Oak Bay Avenue showed support in the plan and Agate won the blessing of the mayor and council to close down the street for the day. Now, the event has since turned into a bit of an institution. One of the biggest surprises to Agate: the number of women who come out. “There are so many women who come out to show their own cars, and many more who had a hand in working on one with a partner,” he says. “Just five years ago, I bought a 1959 Morris Minor Traveller from a woman who had it, original, in Victoria. I thought it would look good outside the Tea Room.” Agate has more in his collection, including a 1975 Boler travel trailer to attach to his Dodge. What’s most impressive about the Oak Bay car festival, he says, is its diversity. “Car shows are like recipes for baking – you might have sponge cakes made by five different ladies, but there will still be one favourite amongst them,” Agate says. “It comes down to the culture, and Oak Bay is lucky to have that true feel of days gone by. We have something special here.” To participate in the show, vehicle placement is from 8 a.m. on Oak Bay Ave. Pre-registration is not necessary, though the stall fee is $15. A prime rib barbecue is available all day long. firstname.lastname@example.org

In a letter to affected residents, Oak Bay deputy treasurer and IT manager Fernando Pimental said: “As attacks on high-profile sites are common, we both monitor and improve our site continuously to ensure security at oakbay.ca. We want to err on the side of caution by providing you with the information we have.” Notice of the security breach was sent to more than 1,000 residents by mail and email. “By Friday all the customers we had email addresses for had received an email from us telling them there might be an issue,” Jensen said. As a precaution, the district recommends that any residents who have signed up for preauthorized payments monitor their bank accounts and contact their financial institution if they have further concerns. Residents who use MyDistrict are advised to log in and change their password and security question. Knapp said these types of security breaches are not uncommon. “I don’t want to downplay it, but when you use
the term hack it sounds like a person hacked into the site, but in reality, this is more likely a virus.” By Tuesday morning, the district had received about 20 calls from concerned residents. “Fernando has been meeting with the bank managers.

Jensen asked Nason to look into the reasons why it took so long for residents to be notified of the security breach. “It was too long, but we can’t say why, at this point, without a full investigation,” Jensen said. “The mayor asked me to take look at the practices and protocols – and what the other municipalities did – specifically on the issue of why there was a delay in getting the advisory out,” Nason said. “We hope to have the independent security audit findings by the end of next week, if not earlier.” Jensen said he wants to know, “not only what happened, but how we can avoid it in the future.” Residents are asked to contact Pimental by email at email@example.com or by phone at 250-598-3311 during regular business hours if they have any questions or concerns. firstname.lastname@example.org

Getting serious in the sandbox Top sand artists join forces to create giant installation at Cadboro Bay Festival Kyle Slavin News staff
Unlike most other artistic pursuits, a completed piece by a talented sand sculptor can’t be kept, hung or displayed for much time. And its longevity is totally weather-dependant. Fortunately for the artists and festivalgoers taking part in this Sunday’s Cadboro Bay Festival, rain isn’t in the forecast, meaning the five elaborate sand sculptures that will soon take shape in Gyro Park will hopefully stick around for a while. “We’re bringing in about 50 tons of sand because you need a select kind. We need an unwashed sand with a little bit of silt in it that keeps it all packed together,” said Fred Dobbs, sand sculpting director for the annual festival. “The sand down at Gyro Park isn’t really conducive to doing a sand sculpture because it’s all worn and washed. Every little grain resembles more of a sphere, versus younger sand that’s more faceted

and squared off.” Upwards of 10 artists will spend the weekend brandishing shovels, trowels, spatulas and knives to make the intricate details to turn five large mounds of sand into works of art. The main sculpture will be a massive, eight-foot-tall piece with an Arabian Nights theme, depicting one of Sinbad the sailor’s adventures involving a large ship and a whale. “We’re always trying to connect the sculpture with something that’s sort of related to the park and the theme of the ocean. Sinbad the sailor’s stories are legendary for imagination and the adventures at sea,” Dobbs said. Rob Phillips, special events co-ordinator for Saanich, says the sand sculpting is the centrepiece of Cadboro Bay Festival, as it’s an offering no other Saanich festival can boast. “About six years ago I thought (the festival) needed a bit of a different focus, showcasing the park as a backdrop, to make it a little different than our other summer events, and sand-sculpting was a nice fit,” Phillips said. “It really is the jewel of our park system. People instantly recognize the Cadborosaurus and the octopus, and having the sand sculptures in and among those make it a well-known park.”

The Vancouver Island Health Authority has chosen one of its own as its new president and CEO, after conducting an extensive international search. Dr. Brendan Carr, placed in the job on an interim basis in May following the retirement of Howard Waldner, had been hired by VIHA in 2012 as executive vice-president and chief medical officer. “We were looking for a strong leader and we’ve got a strong leader, he’s actually proven that in his year with us,” said VIHA board chair Don Hubbard. While the board wound up sticking with the man already in the job, Hubbard insisted Carr was not brought in last year as the heir apparent. The search process came in under the budgeted $140,000, he said. While terms of Carr’s contract are not available, Hubbard said total compensation for the job works out to about $400,000 per year. Carr comes with a range of credentials. Not only is he a medical doctor and an experienced emergency room physician, he holds a masters in business administration.
As plans to make upgrades to Gyro Park are underway, Phillips says that might help Saanich grow the festival to become an actual competition ground for sand sculptors. While there is a People’s Choice award for favourite sand sculpture, the event is not a recognized competition – all sand artwork is commissioned and sponsored by businesses and organizations.

Health authority made right choice Brendan Carr can now take the “interim” word out of his title as president and CEO of the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Now in his third month in the job as head of one of the Capital Region’s largest and most important Dr. Brendan Carr employers, the doctor becomes even more appears to be accountable for well-suited for job VIHA’s public and professional persona. As such, he and the organization will be subject to criticisms from those who question things like his salary and the amount VIHA paid to secure his services. As far as Carr’s annual compensation of $400,000 goes, it’s a realistic number in today’s marketplace. The public needs to accept that’s what it takes to recruit a top-notch candidate to this expensive part of the world. It’s a cost of doing business. Likewise, paying a professional search firm upwards of $140,000 to assemble a qualified collection of individuals out of a global applicant field is not out of the ordinary. In an organization the size of the health authority, one relatively minor decision by Carr could recoup the headhunter’s fee. Whether they are public or private, large organizations need to find leaders who bring considerable skills to the table, can hit the ground running and carry them into the future. With years of experience as a medical doctor, and administrative background with VIHA and the regional health authority in Halifax, Carr no doubt feels comfortable in conversations ranging from patient care strategies to the financial pressures of running a collection of hospitals and care facilities on the Island. He takes over an organization that has won awards for paying attention to diversity and provides an exceptional workplace for its employees, but is also tackling service efficiency problems in smaller communities on the Island. The hope is that Carr will be a good advocate for the health system from a care standpoint, while also being mindful of the efficient use of tax dollars. What do you think?

But we aren’t going to stop everyone from smoking overnight, so we have to find ways to address the litter problem. Again, a combination of public education and regulation will go a long way. In San Diego, Surfrider installed outdoor ashcans and gave smokers pocket ashtrays. Many places, including Vancouver, have banned smoking on beaches and in parks (the Capital Regional District defeated a motion to do so, citing difficulties with enforcement). In Vancouver and other cities, some people have been pushing for a deposit-and-return system similar to those for bottles and cans. Besides reducing litter and environmental damage, methods that also increase the price of cigarettes have proven to be effective in reducing smoking rates. Some consider tobacco a sacred herb. It’s used by many indigenous peoples for ceremonial purposes. With widespread use spurred by marketing, it became a costly and unhealthy addiction and a toxic blight on the environment. Smoking trends in countries like Canada show that societal change is possible and – with education and regulation – people will do what’s best for themselves and for the world around them. email@example.com

LETTERS Reflections of Japan, 68 years after surrender In the summer of 1945, the U.S. military took strong action to stop the Imperial Shinto in Japan, which had been ravaging much of east Asia for years. While the emperor and military were preparing people to fight to the death of every man, woman and child in Japan in an expected land invasion, the U.S. developed the ability to fly over Japan. Unfortunately, the Imperial Shinto regime did not heed the lessons of conventional bombing of Tokyo, then did
not heed the lesson of the first atomic bomb. John David Lewis describes the nature of that regime in his book Nothing Less than Victory: Decisive Wars and the Lessons of History. Lewis goes on to explain how a wise U.S. occupying force fostered freedom by ghost-writing a constitution that included strict separation of religion and state, and by pointing Japanese residents toward individual freedom. For example, the occupation administration
directed Tokyo police to hire female officers. Honest Japanese citizens embraced the positive way and changed their society. People should remember how malevolent the Imperial Shinto regime was and how steeped in its destructive ideology was much of the Japanese population (who were making the weapons, uniforms and other supplies for the military). They should note the ultimate result of total surrender and American direction to a proper way of
life is 68 years of peace and relative prosperity in the country. In contrast, six decades after the 1950s stalemate in Korea, the Marxist regime in North Korea is still aggressive – while people there starve, forbidden to accept food from relatives in China. It’s proof that ideas matter and the defence of individuals against such forces as Imperial Shinto is moral. Keith Sketchley Saanich
Readers respond: Food sourcing, flags, socialism Concern about food prompts more research Re: Buying food from China not the healthiest idea (Letters, Aug. 2) I love food and I cook all the time. I am conscious of what I buy and read the label closely for every item I buy. When I look at other people shopping in the grocery store, and their carts are full of complete junk, like Wagon Wheels or pure white bread and a bottle of Coke, I ask myself, why are they feeding themselves or their families this stuff? Don’t they look at the labels closely like I do and don’t these artificial colours or preservatives mean anything to them? “Product of China” is a very common label on some grocery items. Just the other day, I went to pick up a box of peach fruit cups and on the side of the box it said, “Product of China.” When I read this, I placed it back on the shelf and did not buy it. I hope more people read labels, so we don’t feed our children just anything. Ms. Nattrass’ article inspired me to go ahead and do more research, such as this article, at bit.ly/1etv2Vx.

Rec. Centre a few short years ago when I had to remind the District of Saanich to take responsibility for the state of the Canadian flag flying from the centre’s flagpole. There is an ongoing waste of money on botany (especially on the parking lot traffic islands) when the centre is surrounded by greenery, yet there occasionally has to be a reminder about the flag.

Socialism isn’t just a word, it’s a philosophy Re: NDP soul search going nowhere (B.C. Views, Aug. 1) A significant aspect of NDP postelection soul searching, following its catastrophic defeat by the forces of free enterprise, will no doubt have to be coming to terms with the need to move the party further to the centre, away from its far left-wing base. The federal NDP appears to have decided to delete references to “socialism” from its guiding party preamble to make it more palatable politically and competitive electorally. But merely removing socialism as a founding principle, without jettisoning its politically outdated doctrine, will not convince Canadians that the NDP is anything but a socialist party. Politically, the concept of socialism has proven itself to be an abysmal failure throughout the
world, being replaced by more free enterprise, less government and less social engineering. Confronted with that reality, the question naturally arises as to whether the B.C. NDP will be able to “jump over its own ideological shadow” and abandon its traditional stand on the principles of democratic socialism, as defined in in its constitutional preamble: “The New Democratic Party believes that social, economic and political progress in Canada can only be assured by the application of democratic socialist principles to government and the administration of public affairs ... including, where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.” Stripped of its defining political raison d’être, however, NDP soul-searching as a way of remaining a legitimate electoral contender is like taking a journey into the future without a road map and without a clear sense of its destination – always carrying the baggage of its political past.

Personal reasons to ride Family members battling cancer motivate Saanich police Tour riders Kyle Slavin News staff
veryone has their own personal reasons for riding in the Tour de Rock. All three of the Saanich Police Department’s members have witnessed loved ones fight cancer, and all three have felt the pain of losing loved ones to the disease. For Const. Doug Franklin, he lost a grandfather, two aunts and an uncle on his mother’s side. For Const. Lisa Bruschetta, she lost a grandmother to complications from throat cancer. Her mother was also twice diagnosed with cancer – and beat it both times, and her close friend just recently completed treatment and is now in remission. And for civilian employee Kevin Nunn, a British expat, he lost his father to lung and liver cancer hours before he was to get on a flight back to England to be with his dad. “It’s affected everyone, directly or indirectly. Given the opportunity to make a difference monetarily or emotionally or physically, I had to jump at the chance,” Franklin said, explaining his motivation to ride. The Saanich bicycle patrol cop has three kids, and says meeting families going through the emotions that come with having a child with cancer has put his life into perspective. “I thank my lucky stars because
Arnold Lim/News staff
Saanich police officers Const. Doug Franklin, left, and Const. Lisa Bruschetta, joined by Saanich police quartermaster Kevin Nunn, are part of this year’s Tour de Rock squad. I’m not burdened by the demands of having to care for one of my kids – who are all thankfully healthy. This is my way to give back,” he said. Bruschetta, a mother of two, isn’t as lucky when it comes to the health of her children. Her eight-year-old son Dominic has neurofibromatosis, a disease that makes him susceptible to growing cancerous tumours under his skin or on his brain. She’s riding this year to give support to families and health care officials who have given her and her family the love and support they’ve needed.
Your World On Sale
“I want to give families the same level of support I’ve received. Being in hospitals, being in cancer clinics and seeing how well they’ve taken care of my loved ones, I believe it’s a mirror image of what the Canadian Cancer Society is doing for the children and families who benefit from Tour de Rock,” she said. Nunn, the equipment manager for Saanich police, holds a special place in his heart for Tour. For the past two years he’s held physically gruelling and financially successful fundraisers to benefit Tour de Rock. Being named to this year’s team
as a special guest rider has been lifechanging. Visiting Camp Goodtimes in July, the camp for kids who’ve been diagnosed with cancer, reaffirmed to him just how good a cause he’s fighting for. “Going to Camp Goodtimes and seeing children who are going through cancer who actually don’t realize it; they’ve forgotten that they are (going through cancer) because they’re having so much fun being a child,” he said. This year’s Tour de Rock team is made up of 22 police officers, media riders and special guests. The team will cycle nearly 1,100 kilometres from Port Alice to Victoria Sept. 21 to Oct. 4 raising money for pediatric cancer research and support programs like Camp Goodtimes. All three Saanich riders say their experiences up to this point in their lives – as parents, as police officers, as former military men (both Franklin and Nunn) – haven’t prepared them for the emotions they’ll feel on Tour. “I think that the riding is honestly going to be our easy part. I think meeting these children and families – their stories, that’s where we’re going to need to prepare ourselves,” Bruschetta said. “I’m a very emotional person, so that’s going to involve keeping my focus positive and giving out as many hugs as I can.” “I’m a strong person,” Nunn added. “I did 22 years of the British Forces, so I’ve seen a lot of trauma, a lot of pain throughout the world. But this is something different. This is about children. This is something special.” email@example.com

victoria’s ultimate get out guide
Magic in the making BY TrAVIS PATErSON firstname.lastname@example.org
here’s something magic about Jason Verners. The energetic 14-year-old has yet to hit high school – his family’s Langford house backs onto the greenbelt behind Belmont secondary – which will force him to break from his Simple Arts and Love summer tour. But it can’t pry him away from being a full-time magician. “When I booked 22 shows for my tour this summer I didn’t think it was that much but I’m learning 22 is a lot,” Verners said. On Saturday (Aug. 10) Verners will perform at Rock’n the Bike Fest, the second annual festival and show and shine run by Angels Choppers Bicycle Club at 950 Kings St. from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. He’s among a big list of performers with Wil, Steph MacPherson, Karen Fowlie, Jason Lowe, Neil Trett and Al Harlow of Prism, with dancing by the AC/BC dance crew. Verner’s stage time is 1:50 p.m. AC/BC is built on the positive mission out of restoring and upgrading bikes by inviting youth to put their creative energy into the bikes, while using music and dance as well. “I’ve done lots of festivals but this one is a little bit different. You can see these kids learning all these skills building bikes which is interesting and moving that they can use those skills for the rest of their lives. All the people from AC/BC have been grateful and generous to me and are big supporters.” The past eight months have been a massive learning curve Verners said, and AC/BC was part of it. Verners had picked up some awards in 2012 – third place at the International Magic Experience Youth Magic Championships in Las Vegas, and the Lon Dingwell Young
Magician of the Year in Victoria – and was ready to move on from small-time performer to selling out a ticketed event. “Some friends and I created a show called The Magic Music and Make Memories Show and we wanted somewhere to do it.” Verners attended a music show at Fernwood’s Victoria House Concert B, a glorified Victorian parlour lined with lawn chairs and bar stools for seating. “It’s a long bus ride from (the West Shore). We’re just kids. We don’t have driving licenses. But I was so eager, we organized everything. I kind of forgot to tell my mom, so by the time I did I said, ‘Mom, we’re doing a show at a house in Fernwood.’ It was already set up so she couldn’t say no. It was brilliant.” This is after Verners and friends made a frenzied 18-hour reconnaissance mission to Fernwood, including a two-hour walk from the Bay Centre to Vic High, their landmark for finding House Concert B. “Looking back it was kind of terrifying. It was dark and cold, it was November, kind of brutal. We’re just kids, we kept making wrong turns. I left at 8 a.m. and got home at 2 a.m. We wanted to get there early and see how they set up the show but we barely made it in time for the opening act.” It created a whole new level of trust with parents Candace and Jim, though it’s mutually agreed that unescorted 2 a.m. nights are not ideal. “We sold our show out in two weeks at $15 a ticket, I don’t even know how we did it,” Verners said. Following Rock’n the Bike Fest, Verners is headed to Vegas for a four-day stint of shows. He’ll wrap up the summer tour in Honeymoon Bay on Aug. 24. Then he’ll get ready for high school. Tickets for Rock’n the Bike Fest are $10. Children are free with an adult through acbcbikes.com.

OAK BAY NEWS - Friday, August 9, 2013
Guns is a blast
he revved-up actioner 2 Guns has been getting decidedly mixed reviews, with many of the naysayers in a grump because By ROBERT MOyES this 44-caliber opus lacks thematic focus. Or something. For firstname.lastname@example.org my money, this is an entertaining and stylishly directed slice of GAC – Guy Action Cinema – that is further elevated thanks to yet another great performance by Denzel Washington. In this outing, sporting a soul patch, a slick line of patter and that irresistible grin, Washington plays Bobby Trench, an undercover DEA agent who has teamed up with a bank-robbing lowlife named Stig (Mark Wahlberg). Bobby’s ultimate goal is to bring down a Mexican drug kingpin (Edward James Olmos), but things start to get twisted when it turns out that Stig is secretly working for naval military intelligence, and that neither agent knows about the other’s real identity. The plot really takes off when both men discover that corrupt bosses in their respective organizations are manipulating them. Unfortunately, by this time they have been framed for murder and various other crimes after hijacking $42 million in illegal drug money from a small-town bank. And so, on the run and still uncertain about trusting each other, Bobby and Stig have a lot of bad guys to gun down – and a damsel in distress to try to rescue – before the end credits roll. Guns is a slick, fast-paced shoot-em-up that balances manly mayhem with macho banter. This is competent and clever genre moviemaking, with a complicated but comprehensible plot, a wide assortment of sneering villains, witty dialogue lobbed back and forth between the two heroes, and an innovative torture scene that starts with a baseball bat and ends with a big black bull sporting a bad attitude. In terms of acting, this is totally Washington’s movie, although the likable Wahlberg does a decent, workmanlike job. Plus a lot of character actors shine in minor roles, including Olmos, Bill Paxton as a sadistic CIA bullyboy and Fred Ward as an admiral with a deficient sense of honour. A lot of the credit should go to maverick Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur, who resembles Robert Rodriguez in his clever, shoot-from-the-hip style and ability to work with a smaller budget and get every dollar up on the screen. Fast, funny and painlessly violent, Guns is a blast. Rating: ★★★ 2 Guns continues at the Odeon, SilverCity, and Westshore

PERFECTLY POTABLE: fter all that gunfire let’s check out 19 Crimes, the Aussie blend of Shiraz and Petite Sirah (a.k.a. Durif) named in mocking honour of the 19 different offenses that, long ago, could get an Englishman (or even boy) transported to the penal colony known as Australia. Big and bold on the palate, this is an arresting (sorry, couldn’t resist) wine with cascading notes of black fruits, dark chocolate and a lick of citrus. Flamboyant and lush, this stands out from the crowd of generic Aussie Shirazes and is worth the splurge at $19.

★★★ THE CONJURING -(Empire 6/SilverCity) An elite cast including Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, and Lili Taylor star in a clever haunted house chiller about a pair of paranormal investigators who get in over their heads when they confront a powerful entity. This is an old-school spookfest, interested in atmosphere more so than splatter. THE CROODS -(Caprice) A prehistoric family taking an unexpected “road trip” into a magical land is the plot of this whimsical animated charmer (which has been getting great reviews). With the vocal talents of Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, and Ryan Reynolds. EPIC -(Caprice) In this animated family adventure a teenage girl is magically transported to a deep forest setting where she bands together with a wacky crew of critters to help battle a terrifyingly dark force that is threatening their world . . . and ours. ★★½ DESPICABLE ME 2 -(Odeon/ SilverCity/Westshore/Empire Uni 4) The 2010 original, about a loathsome criminal mastermind who was reformed by the love of three young orphan girls, was a goofy delight. The sequel, although still clever, is much more scattershot, with an unimaginative plot and unwelcome dashes of mean spiritedness. Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, and Russell Brand supply the voices. GROWN UPS 2 -(Caprice) Despite the name, expect the humour to be decidedly juvenile in this amiable raunchfest about the reunion of five school buddies, who have aged but not matured. Starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade. ★★½ THE HEAT -(Odeon/SilverCity/ Caprice) In this raucous and sometimes hit-and-miss comedy from Paul Feig (Knocked Up), Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) play odd-couple cops who will have to learn to work together if they are to stand a chance of taking down the drug lord who’s their assigned target. ★★ THE LONE RANGER -(Caprice) More proves to be less, as the classic western TV show from the 1950s that featured a masked lawman and his Native American sidekick gets a predictably bombastic treatment from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. ★★ NOW YOU SEE ME -(Roxy, 9:00) The FBI and Interpol combine forces to battle a clever crew of Las Vegas illusionists who seem
to be robbing banks . . . while simultaneously performing for a casino audience. Despite a great cast that includes Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, and Jesse Eisenberg, this is a flabby caper film with little magic to it. ★★★½ PACIFIC RIM -(Odeon/ SilverCity/Caprice) Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth) helms this Transformers-ish epic about monsters that attack Earth and are opposed by giant robots controlled by human “pilots.” This is a skilfully directed and highly imaginative tribute to all those schlocky Godzilla movies of old. SMURFS 2 -(Empire 6/SilverCity/ Empire Uni 4/Westshore) The blue munchkins are back for more pintsized adventures, this one involving a sorcerer and a diabolical kidnapping. ★★★ THIS IS THE END -(Caprice) In this truly wacked comedy, stars such as Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel and Jonah Hill play themselves as they party at James Franco’s house -- only to find themselves confronting a terrifying, demon-filled apocalypse. Although a bit oversold and rather slapdash, this is very funny (and very rude). TURBO -(Odeon/SilverCity/ Westshore/Caprice) The latest from Dreamworks Animation is a family comedy about an ordinary garden snail who acquires magic powers -- and the chance to achieve his dream of winning the Indy 500. With the voices of Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Maya Rudolph, and Samuel L. Jackson. ★★★ 2 GUNS -(Odeon) Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg play rival Drug Enforcement agents who think they are investigating each other but have actually been set up by the Mob . . . and now have to shoot their way out of a world of trouble. Lots of fun! See review. ★★★½ THE WAY WAY BACK -(Odeon) A hit at Sundance, this is a funny and touching coming-of-age story about a 14-year-old boy who feels ignored by his mother and pushed around by her overbearing boyfriend (Steve Carell). Also starring Allison Janney, Toni Collette and Sam Rockwell. ★★★ WOLVERINE -(Odeon/ SilverCity/Empire Uni 4/Westshore) Hairy-faced and Adamantium-clawed Hugh Jackman travels to Japan to confront the diabolical Silver Samurai, in an entertaining Marvel Comics smackdown that combines X-men flair with martial arts and yakuza elements. Directed by James Mangold (Walk The Line, 3:10 to Yuma). ★★★ WORLD WAR Z -(Empire 6/Caprice/Roxy, 7:00) Countries topple and armies shatter in the face of a zombie pandemic, as a shaggy-haired Brad Pitt tries to save the world. This is an intense and intelligent movie that uses zombies to embody the more plausible horror of a SARS-like threat to the planet.
FLIGHT OF THE BUTTERFLIES -(11 am, 4 pm) ★★★½ STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS -(8 pm) KENYA: ANIMAL KINGDOM -(noon, 3 pm, 6 pm) ★★★½ ROCKY MOUNTAIN EXPRESS -(1 pm, 7 pm). ★★★½ SHACKLETON’S ANTARCTIC ADVENTURE -(10 am, 2 pm, 5 pm)
MOVIE MONDAY - Presents Quartet. Dustin Hoffman turns in his directorial debut with this droll and heartfelt comedy about a retirement home for classical musicians where the annual concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday is disrupted by the arrival of a diva’s diva (Maggie Smith). The great cast includes Billy Connolly, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay, and Pauline Collins. 6:30 pm MONDAY in the 1900-block Fort. By donation. 595-FLIC. moviemonday. ca.
Cinecenta at UVic screens its films in the Student Union Building. Info: 721-8365. cinecenta.com. ★★½ THE GREAT GATSBY -(Fri.-Sat., Aug. 9-10: 7:00, 9:40 & Sun.-Mon., Aug. 11-12: 7:00 only) Baz Luhrman (Moulin Rouge) directs a lavish, over-the-top screen but decidedly uninvolving version of
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic Jazz Age novel about a glamorous and mysterious millionaire on Long Island. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan. ★★★½ BEFORE SUNRISE -(Tues., Aug. 13: 7:00, 9:10) It is time for a second date with Richard Linklater’s (Dazed and Confused) chatty and charming 1995 film, which featured a couple (Julie Delpy, Ethan Hawke) who meet on a train in Europe and have a magical night together. Originally meant as a one-off, the literate and very romantic Before was so popular that it has spawned two sequels. WHEN THE IRON BIRD FLIES -(Wed.-Thurs., Aug. 14-15: 7:00, 9:00) The Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959 had the unintended result of spreading the exotic teachings of Tibetan Buddhism all across the world. This documentary mix of archival footage and contemporary interviews with practitioners, scholars, and Western scientists explores the possibility that these ancient teachings can lead us to a happier and more compassionate modern world.

Rebels hope for home comfort Travis Paterson
Westshore Rebels defenders Tanner Rodinsky (No. 98), left, and Joey Cavilla (No. 29) right, force Langley Rams player Nathan Lund out of bounds during Saturday’s (Aug. 3) B.C. Junior Football game in Langley. The Rams torched the Rebels 69-10.
The Westshore Rebels’ visit to Langley for Week 2 was a painful follow-up to the team’s B.C. Junior Football conference opener two weeks ago. On Saturday the Rebels suffered a sobering 69-10 loss to the Langley Rams. It dropped the Langfordbased club to 0-2 on the season. Life does’t get any easier as the Rebels host the Okanagan Sun (2-0) at Westhills Stadium on Saturday (Aug. 10). The Sun have outscored their opponents, the Valley Huskers and Vancouver Island Raiders, 82-13 in two games. Running back Emanuel Juma, a first year player from Windsor, Ont., scored the Rebels’ only touchdown against the Rams and led both teams in rushing with 104 yards on 13 carries, including a 59-yard ramble. The Rebels slowed the bleeding in the second half, limiting the Rams to 32 yards rushed and 57 passed, down from the Rams’ 429-yard total in the first half. Kick off Saturday is 4 p.m. firstname.lastname@example.org

Tigers tops in B.C. Reborn Tigers win provincial lacrosse title Travis Paterson News staff
Saanich Tigers players needed ice baths, a pair of borrowed pads and an overnight hospital visit during the course of the long weekend and it paid off as the club won the B.C. junior B box lacrosse championship in Burnaby on Sunday. The host Burnaby Lakers had defeated the Tigers 10-9 during the round robin and took a 9-6 lead into the third period of the gold-medal final. But the Tigers didn’t panic and, with a tip from former senior A Victoria Shamrock Neil Doddige watching in the stands, outscored the Lakers 6-1 in the third period of the gold medal game to win the provincials 12-10. “A lot of players put in unbelievable dedication this year to make the Tigers as good as they are,” said head coach Brett Savory. It’s Savory’s first year with the club. He formerly coached junior A with the Nanaimo Timbermen and Victoria Shamrocks, including the Rocks’ 2008 run to the Minto Cup finals. “(Jr. A Coquitlam Adanacs coach) Doddridge came and
Ethan Garland, left, Jordan Stringer, Trevor Hansen and Jake Benson celebrate winning the B.C. junior B trophy. tipped me off to something about the Lakers’ defence. We scored two quick goals in the third period and controlled from there,” Savory said. Captain Ethan Garland led the team with 15 goals and 25 points in four games. He was burdened with leg cramps in the final two matches, which were both on Sunday, and needed ice baths just to finish. “It was a rewarding feeling that hasn’t fully sunk in yet. I’m starting to realize now that we won. As my last year of lacrosse it’s a good way to finish it,” Garland said. Originally pegged as a Jr. A player, Garland opted to work in construction and play with his friends on the Tigers the past two seasons.
“These are my best friends, we’re all friends and it’s the first provincial title for a lot of them. We had a blast.,” Garland said. Rookie Cody Short stepped up on offence and scored a hat trick in the final, with two goals as part of the third period run that won the championship. Sam Tschritter scored the Tigers’ game winning goal. Earlier in the tournament Tigers’ goalie Cory Mayzes had been called for illegal pads and needed to borrow a pair from the Jr. A Adanacs goalie. Mayzes lost his only pair of pads when he was ejected from the Tigers earlier game on Sunday, a 7-6 win over the Delta Islanders. “(Delta) was the only team
we had really handled in the tournament and were up 7-1 with eight minutes left when they called a pad check on Mayzes. The pads were slightly too wide and we were forced to put Hodgson in net, cold.” Mayzes had given up just one goal on 26 shots to that point. Hodgson, however, was sticking around despite being ill and dehydrated. He had already been to the hospital for intravenus overnight and was just able to stave off the Islanders’ run of five goals, as the Tigers edged them 7-6. Derek Jackson was named MVP of the final with a hat trick. He finished the tourney with five goals and 14 points. Jackson was also MVP the junior B All-Star game one month ago. Manager Chris Jackson started the Tigers three years ago. “We worked our butts off over (the last three years) making (the Tigers) a team the guys were proud to be apart of whether we won or lost. I’m proud to have been able to share in it with (the team),” he said. Due to the cost, about $30,000, the Tigers will not attend the Founders Cup national junior B championship in Winnipeg, Aug. 19-25. “It’s too bad, these guys could do it too,” Savory said. email@example.com

The Highlanders were in it until the end, as the Chill’s second goal didn’t come until the 90th minute. Elliot Mitrou (Oak Bay High) played an exceptional match in net, making several key saves.
