Lantzville residents raise concerns over water deal with city I Town inCreASeS fees to Port Theatre, economic development. By Tamara CunningHam ThE NEwS BULLETiN

Thirty players established a new mark, playing for 50 and a half hours Friday through Sunday at Frank Crane Arena. For the full story, please see page 21.

Private well users in upper Lantzville are getting an unfair deal in the proposed water agreement with Nanaimo, say concerned citizens. The District of Lantzville is reviewing the draft terms of a new water deal with the City of Nanaimo, which officials say provides a solution to limited water supply issues and health concerns. But the conditions don’t wash with residents Carl and Linda Westby, who are concerned about hook-up costs to private well users as well as an increase to Lantzville’s contribution to Nanaimo’s Port Theatre and Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation. The duo have been distributing a pamphlet to the upper Lantzville community, claiming some terms appear unfair and deceiving to taxpayers. They want to see changes before Lantzville signs off on the agreement. According to the district’s summary of negotiations, Nanaimo is offering to pipe in water to 225 upper Lantzville homes already on the municipal water system. The move will cost users nothing

because it will free up connections the district can then charge to other residents, according to Mayor Jack de Jong. But it will cost the district approximately $1.3 million to connect homes. The terms also limit new development connections to 50 a year and allow for the potential of another 211 homes on private wells to hook up in the future. Unlike existing water system users, residents with private wells will be on the hook for infrastructure costs and connection fees because they are farther away from the municipal water system. All taxpayers will have to start paying new contributions to the Port Theatre and Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation as soon as the two municipalities start sharing water. Linday Westby said the terms clearly state there are no guarantees when private well users in upper Lantzville will access city water – if at all. So she questions why everyone should have to pay to supply Nanaimo water to developers and current municipal water system users. Residents with private wells should share costs if and when water is supplied to them, she said. She said it also seems deceiving to call the new money contributions, which ensures everyone pays, when the dollars are more likely a water tax. u See ‘CONTRIBUTIONS’ /4

Risk reduction becomes focus at Colliery dams over winter

I

CITY STAFF looking at all options to mitigate flooding and quake hazard during rainy season. By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

Nanaimo city officials will consider changes to its emergency notification program and dam spillways as part of new short-term mitigation measures for Colliery Dam Park. City staff is working with Snuneymuxw First Nation on short-term fixes to address flood safety issues at Colliery Dam Park this winter, including altering spillways so they can take on more water. Officials say all risk- mitigation options are on the table, but top picks include improved emergency notification for downstream residents, increased water-level monitoring, and drainage of a portion of the dams. They are no longer looking at completely dewatering the two swimming holes, calling the move expensive and impractical. The push to come up with mitigation measures was spurred by city council last Wednesday, which voted unanimously to cancel tenders to demolish the lower and middle Colliery dams this summer. More than $2 million has been made available for future mitigation work and city staff members have been tasked with finding short-term solutions within the next 60 days. The century-old dams are considered a public safety hazard by the B.C. Dam Safety Branch, unable to withstand a major earthquake or flood. City officials had planned to take out the dams this summer and rebuild sometime next year to eliminate risk, but they said an 11th-hour consultation with

Snuneymuxw First Nation precluded any reasonable attempt to deconstruct the structures this season. “Certainly short-term mitigation is our first priority and staff will be looking for input,” said Susan Clift, Nanaimo’s director of engineering and public works. “I think mostly we are going to be focusing on our emergency response for this winter and minor physical changes…because of the lack of time remaining.” The City of Nanaimo has been working with the B.C. Dam Safety Branch on deciding the fate of the structures and they are not happy with the new direction, according to Clift. They wanted the city to consider draining the dams this winter to cut out risk, but Clift said it would have been too difficult for city workers to constantly pump out water flowing into the vacant space. The province sent a letter to council before Wednesday’s meeting, expressing their views on the city’s potential new direction and suggesting they find an alternative as soon as possible. The letter was not made public before press time, despite assurances it would be made available online. Ted Swabey, Nanaimo’s general manager of development, said everyone wishes the risk would have been mitigated permanently before now but “we are, where we are at. We couldn’t get everything done,” he said. The Snuneymuxw and City of Nanaimo will be collaborating on options and rolling out potential short-term and permanent solutions to stakeholders. The city will remain liable for structural damage done by a major quake until the city takes action with long term solutions next spring.

Governance report learning tool for all municipalities in province

I

NEaRBy couNcilS faced similar issues plaguing Nanaimo.

By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

Nanaimo’s new governance report should be a lesson for all B.C. municipalities grappling with internal conflict, says Lantzville mayor Jack de Jong. “[It taught me] conflict is inevitable,” he said. “But if left to linger, it can affect judgement.” The City of Nanaimo recently released the Watson Governance Summary Report, which revealed significant tension, name calling and physical altercations among Nanaimo city council and city staff members have crippled attempts at good governance and could be hurting the city’s ability to make decisions. Consultants warned the behaviour could also negatively effect staff morale, effectiveness of oversight and credibility.

They urged city officials to address internal conflict and recommended a new code of conduct as part of more than 50 changes suggested as part of the review. Municipal leaders from Lantzville and Qualicum have both worked to address internal conflict among their councils and while they were reluctant to comment directly about Nanaimo’s issues, said hard feelings and stress are common for municipal councils. Politicians run as independents with strong opinions on city issues, so emotions can run high on major decisions, they said. “[We meet] about 20 times a year…We are not close. It’s not like we work together every day,” de Jong said. “We try to bond to the extent possible, but the structure is not bonding oriented. We meet, we discuss, we vote and then we disperse and sometimes some issues leave lingering bad feelings.” The important thing is not to allow hard feelings to fester and effect council’s abil-

ity to be objective, he said, adding that one councillor might take an opposite position on an issue just to spite the other. Qualicum mayor Teunis Wesbroek has an internal communications strategy to help deal with conflict and says it’s important for everyone to remember the need to move on from issues after the vote is called. “I think we should always be open to learning from each other...[and] try to improve the way we operate,” he said of the Nanaimo governance report. “The big thing for me personally is that life is too short to spend it fighting.” The Nanaimo governance report, estimated to cost $75,000, made recommendations to help the city reach its potential for good governance, from a new code of conduct to a review of in camera meetings to ensure compliance with legislation. Members of the city’s governance committee are set to review the report and its recommendations this fall.

Hospital foundation celebrates anniversary with family event

I

group hElpS with equipment costs on central island. By Melissa Fryer The News BulleTiN

At some point in life, everyone will need the services provided at the local hospital. That’s why, to celebrate its 35th anniversary, the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation is hosting a day of activities on the soccer field at the former Dufferin Elementary School. In addition to free hotdogs and other refreshments, activities will include a dunk tank with local celebrities. “The hospital foundation is based on all aspects of the hospital,” said Mike McKillican, committee chairman and foundation board member. “We’re born in the hospital and we die in the hospital.” The hospital foundation was established in 1977 to accept donations from people whose loved ones benefitted from health services. In 1991, it began actively fund-

raising to meet the needs in the rising costs of healthcare, providing funding and equipment to not only Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, but also Dufferin Place Extended Care Facility, Eagle Park Health Care Facility in Qualicum, and Trillium Lodge in Parksville. “It’s not just Nanaimo hospital we deal with,” McKillican said. The hospital foundation is not affiliated with the Vancouver Island Health Authority, which manages and provides care for thousands of people each year in the central Island area. Rather, the foundation consults with doctors, health care professionals and administrators with VIHA to identify a project that the foundation can reasonably achieve, like equipping the new emergency room at NRGH. “We’ll pick something that’s really needed,” McKillican said. “We do equipment – we just did the ER in conjunction with VIHA.” McKillican became involved with the foundation while seeking a community-based,

local charity to contribute to. The foundation offered that, with 80 per cent of all money raised going directly to projects in the central Island. “I just liked that the money was going to the right place and not to administration,” he said. Much of the foundation’s support comes from legacy funding, where a donor or a family will bequeath all or part of an estate to the foundation. Money is also raised through Code Brew, a coffeeshop at Nanaimo hospital, plus fundraisers like an annual golf tournament and hospital lottery. Some of the people who’ve donated to the hospital foundation will share their stories at the event on Thursday (Aug. 15). But McKillican stresses that the event is aimed at the entire family – anyone who is affected by health care. The anniversary celebration runs from noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free.

A 71-year-old Nanaimo man has died in hospital after his motorcycle clipped a car that turned across his path on McKenzie Avenue in Saanich last Tuesday afternoon. Saanich police say the motorcycle was headed westbound on McKenzie Avenue toward the Trans-Canada Highway when it collided with an eastbound 2008 Toyota Yaris attempting to turn left. The 1995 Harley Davidson motorcycle struck the Toyota’s rear passenger side, and threw the driver onto the road. Saanich police Sgt. Steve Eassie said there’s no evidence so far that speed played a factor in the crash. Police ticketed an 87-year-old Saanich man for failing to yield on a left turn. Eassie said the 87-year-old will likely face a review of his driver’s licence due to his age and the crash.

A 19-year-old Nanaimo woman is in critical condition in a Victoria hospital after she was struck by a pickup truck early Thursday morning. The collision happened at about 12:30 a.m. on the Trans Canada Highway near Morden Road, according to a press release issued by Nanaimo RCMP. The woman and her boyfriend were walking southbound along the northbound shoulder when the woman suddenly crossed the highway, jumped over the divider and into the path of an approaching southbound Dodge Dakota, driven by a 59-year-old Duncan man. The woman was airlifted to Victoria General Hospital with life-threatening injuries. Police said visibility in the area was limited, with no streetlights. The woman was wearing dark clothing. Speed and alcohol are not contributing factors on the part of the driver, however investigators suspect the woman had been consuming alcohol. Nanaimo RCMP Traffic Services along with an RCMP traffic analyst/reconstructionist are investigating this collision. RCMP Victim Services is assisting the driver and witnesses of the traumatic event. Police are reminding pedestrians to ensure they are visible to passing motorists by wearing reflective or brightcoloured clothing, or carrying a flashlight.

Nanaimo RCMP seized more than 400 plants and 20 kilograms of dried marijuana at two residences in Nanaimo and Nanoose last week. The RCMP made the bust Aug. 7, the result of a three month investigation. It required five search warrants for the two residences involved. The Nanaimo and Nanoose residences were licensed to grow medical marijuana; however, the number of plants being grown exceeded the licensed amount. Investigators said they believe that some of the marijuana was being sold contrary to restrictions. One property also had an illegal hydro bypass that could be used to steal electricity. The RCMP arrested 10 people during the investigation on charges relating to the production and possession of a controlled substance and theft, for the hydro bypass. They were released on the promise to appear in court Nov. 12.

anaimo geography whiz Jacob Burnley is bringing home hardware from the National Geographic World Championship in Russia, after helping secure second place for Canada. The 15-year-old Dover Bay Secondary student pit his geography knowledge against teams from across the globe this summer, hoping to win top honours at the championship in St. Petersburg. Team U.S.A. took the victory in the final round last week, leaving Canada and India to battle for silver in a tense finisher. “It was the way a world championship should end – with some drama and a ... tense, close final,” said Burnley’s father, Chris. He watched from the audience as Team Canada broke the tie with the answer to a final question, earning the silver. It was a nerve-wracking experience but totally worth it, said Jacob Burnley, who is elated to be bringing home a win for his country with teammates Kyle Richardson, 16, of Kitchener, Ont., and Spencer Zhao, 15, from Toronto. “For four years I have wanted to be a part of this. To finally be there ... it was just an amazing experience,” he said. “To represent Canada itself was just awesome ... [and] it was great to meet people from different parts of the world.” The geography contest happens every second year with aims of inspiring youth to get excited about geography. Burnley, who won his spot earlier this year in the Great Canadian Geography Challenge qualifier, believes the competition is proof geography can “take you places you can’t imagine.” It was one of the reasons he became hooked on maps – the idea he could visit the places he saw in atlases. In St. Petersburg, teams were challenged to answer questions on physical, cultural and economic geography and go on a digital scavenger

Doctor good choice for VIHA

Dr. Brendan Carr can now take the “interim” word out of his title as CEO of the Vancouver Island Health Authority. Now in his third month in the job as head of one of the Island’s largest and most important employers, the doctor becomes even more accountable for 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 burdensome – at some level, taxpayers are always the ones on the hook for these unsustainable public-sector salaries – but it is unfortunately a realistic number in today’s marketplace. That’s what it takes to recruit a top-notch candidate to this expensive part of the world. 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 aims to provide 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.

In San Diego, Surfrider installed outdoor ashcans and gave smokers pocket ashtrays. Many places, including Vancouver, have banned smoking on beaches and in parks. Stepping up enforcement of litter laws also helps. Some people even recommend banning filtered cigarettes or at least requiring filters to be biodegradable, arguing they’re more of a marketing ploy than a safety feature. 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.

Is Your PC Behaving Badly? Is your PC running slower than when it was new? Are you pestered with pop-ups? Do you have Internet connection problems? Do you get error messages on startup or while running Windows? Does your system lock-up or restart for no reason? Are you running out of hard drive space? Is the system making loud or strange sounds?

PC Tune-Up $99 Most of these problems are caused by a combination of: Low system resources as a result of too many unnecessary programs loading on startup, having viruses, spyware, adware and foistware installed, corrupted or out of date system files, fragmented hard drives, lack of available hard drive space, and overheating caused by clogged heat sinks and defective fans. Our Tune-Up takes care of the most common computer problems that our service department sees on a daily basis. We can also recommend hardware and software upgrades to make your system perform better than new. Allow two working days for this service.

To the Editor, I am appalled and outraged to hear that city council did not take a strong stand against the waste-to-energy incinerator proposed by Metro Vancouver. I grew up in Nanaimo and have appreciated the natural environment here for more than 20 years. Our beautiful surroundings are what drives people to relocate here and travellers to visit, creating jobs . What’s more, the RDN has worked so hard to divert waste through recycling and composting. Let us not enable Metro Vancouver to continue environmentally negligent practices having four times higher waste per capita than the national average. Instead, I strongly urge city council to officially oppose the siting of Metro Vancouver’s planned incinerator within Nanaimo city limits and take any necessary actions to prevent an incinerator from being built in Nanaimo. Please stand up for a clean, healthy Nanaimo community.

Skandal-ous performer BY RACHEL STERN

S

kandal Anna is overcome with anxiety every time she goes to perform, but once she’s on stage it melts away. There is something about burlesque. It makes her happy. It empowers her. Gabriola’s Skandal Anna is one of five performers that will make the stage sizzle during the Diva Dolls beer and burger burlesque show Saturday (Aug. 17) at the Harewood Arms Pub. She’ll sing Welcome to Burlesque and do a performance to the song Whatever Lola Wants. She takes inspiration for her routine from classic burlesque acts and said her performances are more sultry than silly. The event is a fundraiser for the Child Development Centre. “Children are the most important thing for the future,” said Skandal Anna. The fundraiser is being organized by Brandi Blaze, owner of Diva Doll Boutique. Blaze said she decided to create the event when she learned that the centre is hosting a telethon this September and needs to raise money for its programs. Blaze will perform three numbers during the burlesque show. She loves performing and said the experience has made her more confident about herself. “It makes me feel good when I get to show women of all ages that you can be beautiful no matter what your age or your size,” said Blaze. “It’s a great art form.” Blaze said burlesque has given her more confidence in herself. “I used to be a very shy person,” she said. The burlesque beer and burger show also features a silent auction and a 50/50 draw. All proceeds are being donated to the centre. Tickets are $15 and are available in advance from Diva Doll Boutique, located at 4 Commercial St., or at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show begins at 7 p.m.

Raiders never give up in loss to Rams

I

LANGLEY WINS 36-28 in V.I.’s home opener.

We fought and gave ourselves a chance.

BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The V.I. Raiders didn’t win, but they came a long way as a team over four quarters of football. The Raiders twice trailed the Langley Rams by two touchdowns late, and twice they answered back, before they eventually came up short by a 36-28 score Saturday at Caledonia Park. “At the end of the day we fought and gave ourselves a chance on that final drive,” said Matthew (Snoop) Blokker, Raiders coach. “We still had a chance to tie this game and unfortunately we didn’t make it happen.” The home team took some time to find the endzone, as it trailed 15-6 at halftime and 22-6 after three quarters. But veteran receiver Whitman Tomusiak got in synch with rookie quarterback Jamie Ybarra and willed the Raiders downfield in crunch time. “We made our reads and we just threw the football and gave ourselves a chance to make plays,” Blokker said. “When you do that you’ve got a chance and that’s what happened.” Saturday was the V.I. team’s home opener and there seemed to be jitters to start, as the Raiders dropped the opening kickoff, botched a snap and had to concede a safety before the contest

was a minute old. A 24-yard field goal from Ryan Jones, though, put the Raiders up 3-2 after a quarter. The second quarter started with a 104-yard catch and run from starting quarterback Jaeden Marwick to Dylan Schrot, but the Raiders had to settle for another field goal. The Rams retook the lead on a 34-yard passing TD, then came up

with an interception in their endzone that eventually led to a one-yard rushing TD. Nanaimo again made it to the red zone in the dying seconds of the first half, but some miscommunication between coaches and officials – the field’s score clock wasn’t working – saw time expire before the Raiders could try a short field goal.

In the fourth, Tomusiak made a long catch to get his team into the red zone, then caught a 10-yard TD pass. The teams traded interceptions, then each team’s QB scored on a one-yard TD run. The Raiders’ onside kick attempt with four minutes left was unsuccessful, and when Jahlani Gilbert-Knorren scored his third rushing TD of the day moments

later, the game looked out of reach. But Tomusiak’s 75-yard TD reception, followed by a big defensive stop, gave the Raiders one last chance. Langley came up with a pick to secure the outcome. Tomusiak said the team will take positives out of the home opener, no matter the outcome. “I think a lot of people maybe thought we were going to come and get

crushed out here and we certainly didn’t…” he said. “Everyone’s got to relax. I know there’s huge expectations for this team just off its history. This is the youngest team we’ve ever had. We’ve just got to let the season go on, let these guys learn a bit.” Ybarra finished 11-for20 for 233 yards, two passing touchdowns, two INTs and a rushing TD, while Tomusiak had 225 receiving yards on 11 catches. Schrot scored a two-point convert and finished with four catches for 130 yards. Michael Ritchot and Andrew Deleon were Nanaimo’s top rushers with 63 yards apiece. Marwick was 8-for-14 passing for 181 yards. Defensively, Cole Samson blocked a convert and he and Dylan Chapdelaine had five tackles each. Daniel Dubinski had an interception and Owen Redlick recovered a fumble. GRID BITS … Saturday’s result marked the first time that the Raiders lost a regular-season home game since July 30, 2005 … The Raiders host the Valley Huskers on Saturday (Aug. 17) at 4 p.m. at Caledonia Park. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Youths persevere, set ball hockey world record BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

They set a world record, and at the same time, they accomplished so much more than that Thir ty local youths achieved their goal this past weekend at Frank Crane Arena, playing ball hockey for 50 and a half hours to put themselves in the book of Guinness World Records. “I’ll say it again: not even

NHL million-dollar stars could probably do this,” said Tali Campbell, the event’s organizer. “But these youths put their mind to it, their dedication and their heart and they did it.” Last year, Campbell’s Youth Sticking Together group made an attempt at the world’s longest outdoor street hockey game and made it halfway to its goal. Immediately, players wanted to try again, and

their desire was intensified when one of last year’s participants, Gage Wilson, was killed in a car crash. So this past weekend they were playing not only for a world record, but also for redemption, and a wish to memorialize their friend the best way they knew how. “We had the right group of guys,” said Aaron Schulze, one of the players. “We had a bunch of great people here and the memories of

Gage helped us get through this.” It wasn’t easy. At about the 20-hour mark one guy got injured and another opted to call it quits. That first night, in the wee hours, with not a soul in the stands supporting them, players started to question themselves. “That’s when we really had to keep each other going,” said Brighton Bartlett, a team captain. ◆ See ‘RECORD’ /22

Inbrief Hard work raises Garrison’s game sports

Canucks blueliner, a former Clipper, prepares for camp

VIU Mariners soccer starting The new college sports season isn’t far off. Vancouver Island University’s soccer teams have already taken to the pitch to start training for their upcoming Pacific Western athletic association campaigns. The Mariners women’s team got in some game action on the weekend, playing a friendly against a VIU Mariners alumni team. The contest ended in a 2-2 draw, with Jessie Weninger and kimberly cardwell scoring for the M’s and Jolene Nagy getting a pair of goals for the alumni. anup kang, coach of the VIU women, said in a press release that cardwell, kaylee Dodds, Moira Brown and Zoe Grace showed standout efforts. The team has another friendly this saturday (aug. 17) against the Douglas royals at 1:30 p.m. at Merle logan Field.

Garrison toiled in relative obscurity during his first three seasons with the Panthers, but broke out offensively in 2011-12 setting a franchise record for single-season goals by a defenceman with 16. The timing proved to be ideal, as Garrison became a sought-after free agent who signed a six-year contract with the Canucks last summer. The chance to play for his hometown team was a dream come true. “It’s one of those things you don’t really think about too much until somebody asks you,” he explains. “Then you think, ‘yeah, that would be awesome.’” Garrison scored eight goals and 16 points in 47 games as a Canuck last season. He had his ups and downs, but feels he learned a lot and is looking forward to the 2013-14 season under new coach John Tortorella. “The main goal is to win, and sometimes a change is good,” he says. “I think it will be positive. [Tortorella] brings a lot of energy, a lot of experience and a different set of dynamics. We’re excited.”

BY DON FENNELL Black Press

Jason Garrison took the less-travelled road to the National Hockey League, signing his first pro contract with the Florida Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2008. And it’s perhaps in part because he was a so-called late bloomer that the now 28-year-old Vancouver Canucks’ defenceman refuses to take his position for granted. “I personally want to take my game to another level,” said Garrison. “Ultimately, every summer, I want to come into the next year feeling better than the last.” Take skating, for example. Though Garrison has always been a good skater, for the last several summers he’s honed that skill working out at the Vancouver Hockey School. “There are always so many guys that want your spot,” Garrison said. “You

have to not only maintain your skills but grow them.” During a workout with a group of fellow pros last week in Richmond, Garrison frequently stopped to ask what he can do better. “Ninety-nine per cent of players wait for feedback

from you, whereas Jay will go through a drill and then explain what it felt like for him,” said Derek Popke, skating coach at the hockey school. “By the two of us working together, that’s where you get the ultimate development and progression.”

One player had to get his knee popped back into its joint. Other knees gave out, too, and players got bumps and bruises. Some of the injuries will take a long time to heal, Brighton Bartlett said. “A lot of people were getting hurt in there but they wanted it. They wanted the

record,” he said. “They wanted to do this for themselves, for each other and for Gage.” The guys might have looked sore and slow in stretches, but not at the end of the game. As they entered the final hour of play, they sped up and played some spirited hockey for the spectators that had

gathered to witness the record-breaking moment. The entire arena counted down the last seconds, and one team scored a goal right at the 50-hour mark, and players on both teams, even the one that got scored on, raised their arms in victory. On the benches, players hugged, or sobbed, or both. “I can’t believe how proud I am of every single one of these guys…” Campbell said. “There’s a lot of stereotypes that youth are bad in the community, but this event here just showed they’re not. They beat this record, they fought for it, they were lead-

ers out there and they raised money for charity.” Proceeds from the event benefited Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Vancouver Island. The game will go in the books as a 931-898 final score, with the First Capital Realty team defeating the University Village Mall team. But these guys were all one team – one family, Bartlett said – and this time, their team won. “We managed to get a second chance. In life you don’t always get them,” Schulze said. “We got a second chance and we made sure we did it this time.” sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Larry Berg February 6, 1942 ~ August 2, 2013 Larry passed away at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital on August 2, 2013 at the age of seventy one. He was predeceased by his infant son, Robert in 1966, his father, Carl in 1982 and his mother, Adah in 1995. He is survived by his brothers: Dennis (Ruth) of Parksville, Ken (Betti) of Brookmere; by nieces: Carol Campbell (Richard) of Brentwood Bay, Susan Brooks (Troy) of Port Moody, Corrine Berg of Courtenay; and nephews, Randy Berg (Debra) of Vancouver and Brock Berg (Karen) of Courtenay. About five years ago Larry was diagnosed with the horrible and incurable disease myelofibrosis. In his last few years, and particularly the last few months, he endured unbearable pain and suffering due to symptoms and complications from this disease. In spite of his family’s pleading he refused to be admitted to the hospital until he became so weak he had no choice but to go, only two weeks before he died. He probably knew his time had come, but he would never admit how ill he really was. Larry was born in New Westminster, BC but lived most of his life on Vancouver Island in the communities of Sayward, Courtenay, Port Alberni, Schooner Cove, Errington and Nanaimo. In the early 1960’s he worked as a government log scaler up and down the coast before switching to the more lucrative occupation of timber faller for MacMillan Bloedel’s Sproat Lake Division in Port Alberni. He felled trees for about ten years until he had to quit because of White Finger Disease, a variation of Raynaud’s Disease which often afflicts fallers and others who work with vibrating machinery. He then tried selling real estate, but was not too successful due to slow markets and a tendency to value honesty above profit. He was not above telling his clients that this was not the right house for them. Early in his life Larry became interested in flying and in the mid 1960’s he obtained his private pilots license at Comox. Over the years, he built two kit airplanes in his garage and restored a crashed Cessna 172 which he flew to the big airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. At various times he belonged to flying clubs in Port Alberni, Qualicum and Nanaimo where he spent many hours talking about flying with fellow pilots and taking part in flying events. For several years he drove from Nanaimo to Cassidy airport almost very day to hang out with his flying friends, until a few weeks before he passed away. He realized that he was too weak to safely drive that far. Larry was married several times, but spent much of his life living by himself as a bachelor. He always had the love and support of his family, but in later years his favorite pastime was shooting the breeze with his second family, his Nanaimo flying buddies. The suffering is over. We hope he is now flying with the angels. No funeral is planned, but a family memorial may be planned later in the summer. Condolences may be offered at telfordn@shaw.ca Telfords Nanaimo (250)591-6644

KRUTZ: Werner (Vern) Christe, a wise and extraordinary man, left this life on the evening of Aug 2/13 in his residence at Wexford Creek, Nanaimo. Born Dec 5/25 in Morden, Manitoba, Vern was the 9th of 11 children. He is survived by his children Henry, Bill, Donna (Bruce), Roberta (Chris predeceased 2006), Laura (Galan); step-children Cathy and William; grandchildren Kyle, Amy (Craig), Adam, Layla, Carly, Gia; the mother of his children and his wife from 19511974, Roberta Krutz; his sisters Erma, Erika, Evelyn; and his partner from 1980-2004, Fran Willgress. In 1940, at the tender age of 14 Dad left home and joined the army...until they discovered he was underage. During the next 12 years he joined the army, navy, and RCAF Reserve. In 1958 he moved to BC to become the first sanitary inspector for the Pacific Zone. Dad retired in 1980 with a total 34 years of loyal public service. He truly enjoyed his work and always said his job was to serve. He did it well. Dad had a love and respect for the land. After retiring he worked 13 plus years as Land Manager for Cowichan Tribes. He was an avid farmer and right up to the end his greatest joy was spending time on the farm with friends and family. Please help us celebrate Vern’s exceptional sense of humour and wonderful influence on those around him on Saturday, September 21, 2013 @ 2:00PM at the Cedar Community Hall, Nanaimo. Special thanks to the caring staff at Wexford Creek and a huge shout out to our brother, Henry Krutz, for his devoted and amazing care of our Papa over the past 7 plus years. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC would be wonderful.

SMITH, Alicia May ( Johnnie) May 29, 1934 – August 2, 2013

With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Alicia on Friday, August 2, 2013. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many people. Alicia was predeceased by her daughter, Elizabeth Irene Smith (Lisa), who passed away on March 30, 1996. She leaves behind her loving husband of 60 years, John R. Smith (Smoky). Alicia also leaves behind her son, Bill Birdsell-Smith; daughter, Charleen ( John) Dodsworth and daughters Danielle and Ashley; daughter, Nikki (Gary) Patrickson and son Cassidy; granddaughters, Jacquie (Steve) Brehaut and Jennifer (Kevin) Haslam; and great-grandchildren: Keely, Skyler, Phoenix, Steele-raine, and Lyric. In the 1970s Alicia worked with the Nanaimo Clippers Fan Club and hosted players in her home. She also traveled to Czechoslovakia with the team as their governess. Alicia was a realtor in Nanaimo during the late 70s and early 80s. In her later years, she and Smoky lived on a float house in the Johnstone Strait, which was a dream of his. Alicia was talented and enjoyed sewing, knitting, and crafts. There will be a celebration of Alicia’s life at 434 Seventh St, Nanaimo from 1:00-4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 18, 2013. “We’ll miss you, Mom.” Sands ~ Nanaimo (250)753-2032

Libra

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, your financial burden is a little easier this week. Perhaps you have caught up on bills or have received a little extra money you didn’t expect. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, whether you are in a relationship or are looking for a new romantic partner, the next few days are the moments for putting on the charm. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, many things need to get done this week before you can set work aside and take a much-needed vacation. Once you get through the bulk of things, you can relax. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Save some of your good fortune for others, Leo. When you share the wealth, not only will you feel better about yourself, but also you will certainly have more friends around you.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, sometimes you have to be the voice of reason, and this won’t always make you popular with others. Though some may not rally around you this week, they’ll relent. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Something that seemed like a good idea at first glance may not seem like the best thing to do right now, Scorpio. Switch gears while you can still take another path. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, although you may rather spend your time doing something else for the next few days, handle your upcoming obligations without complaint. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Surround yourself with close friends, Capricorn. They will serve as your anchor in difficult situations that may come to pass this week. It’s good to have a support system. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 There is more to you than others see, Aquarius. Sometimes you relish in being mysterious, and this is one of those times. Others’ interest will be piqued. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Don’t take any sniffles or sneezes for granted, Pisces. Make sure this week you pay attention to your health to ensure good days ahead.

Gabriola islander inspired to compete in triathlon

I

DEBORAH BLAKE made life changes after facing health crisis with her aging parents. BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

hree years ago Gabriola’s Deborah Blake was facing a health crisis. She had to move her aging parents into a care home and through the process learned about health problems that were an issue in her family. It made her realize she needed to change things in her life and get more active to improve her health. “I decided I would make some lifestyle changes,” said Blake. She joined a walk/run group led by personal trainer Lesley Standerwick. After a while Blake began to feel healthier and was enjoying the social aspect of the group. That social aspect was one of the driving forces that kept her going. “I started to feel motivated. I started to feel really good. I had more energy,” said Blake. “It was a long, slow process. In her walk/run group she met Susan Brookes, who had worked for years for Triathlon B.C. That friendship led Brookes to learn about the Qualicum Beach Triathlon. Brookes decided she would compete in the triathlon. It required her to bike 18 kilometres, run five km and swim 400 metres. One problem was Blake wasn’t a good swimmer. She knew some basics, but wasn’t sure if she had enough knowledge to compete in that portion of the triathlon. She turned to Nanaimo’s parks and

recreation department for help. The department directed Blake to Maurya Tatler, the City of Nanaimo’s aquatic coordinator. For four months, she rode her bike from the Gabriola ferry terminal to Beban Park to take swimming lessons from Tatler. “She (Tatler) had complete confidence in me. Her confidence created commitment. I felt like I can do this,” said Blake. After about the third session Blake began to get really excited about the process. “Maurya really inspired me,” said Blake. Blake didn’t finish in the Top 10 during the triathlon but for her it wasn’t about being the winner. It was about the accomplishment of finishing the race, something she wouldn’t have been able to do three years ago before deciding to change her lifestyle. “I had a big smile on my face the whole time I was doing it,” said Blake. Blake said she couldn’t have done it without the support of friends and family, such as her husband, Darryl Receveur, and sister, Laura Blake. Now with confidence in her abilities and a great support network behind her Blake has made the commitment to compete in three triathlons a year with her granddaughter. The City of Nanaimo’s parks, recreation and culture department offers aquatics and swimming lessons for all ages and abilities, including one-on-one sessions. For more information about programs offered please go to www.nanaimo.ca and click on the parks, recreation and culture tab or call 250-756-5200. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Magic of summer camp continues in the fall

I

activity guidE out this month.

By HannaH King Ah, August – warm winds, brightly coloured flowers, swimming outdoors. I keep thinking that all these summer evenings we are spending as a family feel like such a gift after those busy days of the school year. Perhaps you are basking in a post-

summer vacation glow or gearing up for your end-of-summer escape. At the City of Nanaimo’s parks, recreation and culture department we are trying to capture all the energy that the hundreds of campers coming through our facilities are sharing. There is something magical about the transformation that takes place over the course of a week that we observe in our campers.

Many of them arrive in the lobbies on Monday morning somewhat quiet, perhaps unsure. It doesn’t take long until we can hear their giggles and excited voices as they head out for their daily adventures. Fridays around here are the best, as we watch campers leaving with a skip in their step, full of the confidence that a week of exploring, playing and making friendships fills a

person with. That is the magic of camp. If you are still considering a week or even just a day or two there is still time to register. Staff have been putting all that absorbed energy to good use preparing for the fall/winter program season. We’ve lined up more than 1,000 programs for the fall/winter season. They are all listed in the upcoming activity guide, which you’ll see

Volunteers needed to clean up shorelines Imagine travelling across Canada three times end to end -between Vancouver to St. John’s. That distance -- 21,775 kilometers -- is about the length of shorelines cleaned to date in Canada as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. Celebrating 20 years this fall, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, a conservation initiative of Vancouver Aquarium and WWF, is calling on Canadians to sign up at ShorelineCleanup.ca as site coordinators or participants for this fall’s cleanup, taking place Sept. 21-29. The shoreline cleanup is Canada’s largest direct-action conservation initiative, mobilizing participants throughout the country to remove litter from its shorelines -- anywhere where land meets water. Shoreline litter is a serious environmental issue in Canada -- and worldwide. Its effects are far-reaching, from entangling and choking wildlife,

to being ingested by wild animals, to negatively impacting water quality and cleanliness. To address this issue head-on, the goal of the Great

Canadian Shoreline Cleanup this year is to enlist 64,000 site coordinators and volunteers to participate, an unprecedented goal for the program. Last year,

Shoreline Cleanup collected more than 136,000 kilograms of shoreline litter. For more information, please visit www.shoreline cleanup.ca.

arriving around town on Aug. 24. Watch for them at grocery stores, libraries, malls and recreation facilities. A turn-page version of the guide will also be posted online at www. nanaimo.ca. The registration date for fall/winter programs set for Aug. 28. For more information about programs, events and services offered by Nanaimo’s parks, recreation and cul-

ture department, please visit www. nanaimo.ca or call 250-756-5200. We have a place for you!
