Security added during recent city meetings

Short-term dam mitigation might destroy spillway BY TAMARA CUNNINGHAM THE NEWS BULLETIN

Physically changing Nanaimo’s Colliery dams over the short term could carry a $2-million price tag and jeopardize a historic spillway, prompting city officials to now ask if it’s worth it. Nanaimo city staff is working with the Colliery Dam Preservation Society and Snuneymuxw First Nation on short-term solutions to mitigate flood safety risks posed by the century-old middle and lower Colliery dams this winter. City officials said top picks included lowering the dams’ spillways to allow them to take on more water, but a recent reassessment report by engineering firm Klohn Crippen Berger has them second-guessing whether it makes sense to do temporary work on the dams at all. The report re-assessed the short-term and long-range options for the Colliery dams, which have been flagged by the province as being in extreme risk of failing during a catastrophic flood or quake. According to KCB, work to the spillways’ is the best shortterm solution, anticipated to drop water levels by three meters and deepen spillways enough to eliminate flood hazards. But it would also destroy part of Nanaimo’s industrial past – the lower dam spillway – and reduce water levels, which could make the lake warmer in the summer, putting some organisms at risk. ◆ See ‘REPORT’ /4

DESIGNED TO help keep the peace for council, public during contentious, emotional issues. BY TAMARA CUNNINGHAM THE NEWS BULLETIN

Vancouver Island Conference Centre bills taxpayers to ramp up security at Nanaimo city council meetings when management anticipates hot-button issues and big crowds will put public safety at risk. Security has been hired to oversee Nanaimo city council meetings up to 10 times in the last year when conference centre staff feared contentious issues could get out of hand, including a meeting last Monday. The extra measures are paid for by the City of Nanaimo. Security at city council meetings isn’t practiced in all B.C. communities, but Nanaimo city staff members say this municipality is a unique case as a tenant of the conference centre. The centre’s staff consults with city officials and the RCMP about upcoming agendas and the potential for crowds to turn hostile over contentious issues. Ultimately it is up to conference centre management to make the judgement call about the amount of security the city needs at its meetings, staff said. Recent measures were reportedly not communicated with top city officials, who initially told the News Bulletin they were unaware why security was monitoring a city meeting. Conference centre general manager Denise Tacon said the guards were a necessary precaution because of unresolved issues at city hall. “[By the] next council meeting, I will talk to the city and RCMP and they will say maybe this isn’t needed going forward,” she said. “It certainly isn’t something that happens to all city council meetings by any means.” ◆ See ‘CONFERENCE’ /4

City moves forward with mobile licence A new mobile business licence program could be a big boon for Nanaimo businesses, experts say. The City of Nanaimo is moving forward with a new inter-municipal business licence program, aimed at cutting costs for businesses doing work in several Vancouver Island communities. Under the program companies can purchase an annual $150 mobile licence instead of buying individual licences for each community. Up to 12 municipalities

could participate in the program. Business experts say the initiative will make it easier for companies to expand on Vancouver Island and could cut expenses. “For some companies [licence] paperwork is an impediment ... so its easier to stay and work where they are as opposed to growing,” said Donna Hais, general manager of Bob Wall Construction. “[This mobile licence] is good news.” A proposed bylaw is expected this September.

One man was treated for smoke inhalation after the home he was renting caught fire early Thursday. Firefighters arrived

on scene at about 12:30 a.m. to find flames and smoke billowing out the kitchen window. During a quick check of the exterior of the house firefighters banged on the walls during a more

thorough check and noticed a light on in a bedroom. Soon after a man appeared in the bedroom window. “I guess banging on the wall woke the guy up who was already in the process of taking on smoke inhalation,” said Martin Drakeley, Nanaimo Fire Rescue assistant chief of operations. “He kind of half bailed out the window and they

Ennis Mond, fire prevention officer, said the short circuit of the refrigerator’s electrical cord, which frayed due to vibration against another item behind the fridge, triggered the fire. Fire damage was contained to the kitchen area, but there was smoke damage throughout the upper floor of the house. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

Jensen has been docked four days’ pay and will receive disciplinary action from his commanding officer. Jensen also consented to a search of his personal locker where investigators found a set of brass knuckles, which Jensen had confiscated on a previous investigation. Brass knuckles are a prohibited weapon in Canada. Jensen allegedly was unable to recall from which investigation the brass knuckles were confiscated and had not forwarded the exhibit through proper protocol, McPhail said, for which Jensen faced a second code of conduct hearing, was docked an additional two days’ pay and will receive another formal reprimand from his commanding officer. The criminal investigation into the missing money is continuing. “We are yet to solve the criminal case,” McPhail said. “It’s treated as a criminal case. The money’s missing. We can’t find any reason where it could be lost or how it could be lost. Complete searches have been done.” McPhail pointed out that there are currently no charges or allegations against Jensen from the criminal investigation. “This (code of conduct investigation) was all focussed on his specific handling of exhibits taken into his custody and his responsibility for those items,” McPhail said. The detachment has since installed a drop safe that evidence cash and valuables must be dropped into, which is only accessible by the detachment’s evidence custodian, plus high-resolution video surveillance cameras were installed in hallways and areas of the interim evidence exhibits locker and all other areas exposed to exhibits during the cell renovation carried out over the winter months. “We can actually now see who enters and leaves the room, who’s there and all that stuff,” McPhail said.

Underprivileged kids will start another school year with basic school supplies, food and other necessities, thanks to the Nanaimo-Ladysmith Schools Foundation. The foundation kicked off its fourth annual Stock the Lockers Campaign at Staples Aulds Road location Thursday morning when representatives from the school district and sponsoring companies, including Coastal Community Credit Union, Costco, Staples and other supporters turned out for event. The fundraising target for this year’s campaign, which runs until Sept. 5, is $50,000 to buy school supplies and help provide basic necessities, including school lunch and breakfast programs for children in need. Sponsors and supporters have helped raise $140,000 for the foundation’s Student Support Fund since the campaign started in 2009. “It’s been huge support from the community,” said Erin van Steen, foundation executive director. “I can’t say enough about how much of a difference that money makes to the vulnerable children within our school district and how much it assists them with going back to school and also throughout the school year.” The campaign is the foundation’s biggest annual fundraiser. Carlos Pellegrino, Staples district manager, said poverty is one of the most vicious diseases in society and this year’s drive will help protect some of the most vulnerable in the community. “Going back to school is probably something most of us have taken for granted and something that we did very easily,” Pellegrino said. “It’s not so easy for a lot of people in our community.” Among the sponsors recognized at the event was Costco, which this year donated school

A Nanaimo RCMP officer has been reprimanded and Nanaimo RCMP detachment has changed its evidence handling procedures following an internal investigation into a missing evidence case. The action stems from simultaneous code of conduct and criminal investigations started in February 2011 after it was discovered in December 2010 that $10,000 cash and 0.3 grams of cocaine had gone missing from a temporary evidence storage locker. Findings from that code of conduct investigation, conducted by officers from Island District RCMP in Victoria, were announced at a public hearing at the Coast Bastion Inn last week. Const. Tyler Jensen, 34, who has been with RCMP eight years and is now on administrative duties with South Island Highway Patrol, is alleged to have left his locker unattended for a short period of time and instead of securing his key on his person, had left it in a duty bag. “(The evidence items) were put into the member’s secure personal locker,” Supt. Norm McPhail, Nanaimo RCMP detachment commanding officer. Each officer in the detachment is issued a padlock and a key they use on a locker, which they can use to temporarily store evidence and other items securely. Money and other items are accounted for by two officers before they are put in the locker. “Once they put the proper exhibit tagging on that it’s taken into the vault and so the items went missing from the member’s personal locker by virtue that they put their padlock on,” McPhail said. “An investigation was conducted into what we believe was the theft of $10,000 cash, which was missing from the exhibits, as well as an administrative review into how we are managing our exhibits.”

Conference centre responsible for guests’ safety u From /1 Nanaimo’s downt o w n c o n f e re n c e centre reports it has charged the city around $750 so far this year for additional security. According to Tacon, #1 the centre is responsible to ensure its building and guests

are protected and evaluates all events for potential issues. If increased security is needed, clients are given the bill. Tacon said she believes it is better to be safe than sorry, including at city council meetings. Vancouver’s

Stanley Cup riot in 2011 only confirmed for her how quickly emotion in large crowds can become a public-safety issue. People can get very emotional about community issues in city meetings and an enforcement presence helps ensure people feel safe no matter which side of the debate they are on, she said. “Part of [my mandate] is to understand and recognize when there are contentious issues and hostility around a subject … there can be emotion that changes the dynamic and therefore would

need to have enforcement to ensure all individuals are in a safe and harmonious environment,” she said, adding some meetings have been “way too hostile.” Other municipalities have varied approaches to security. The City of Victoria has an extra commissionaire that stands at the doors of city hall meetings, while other communities like Kelowna, Kamloops and Courtenay bypass security personnel all together. Rob Mayne, Kelowna’s director of corporate services, said they pride their resi-

dents in acting professionally in council chambers even during emotional issues. There has never been a circumstance where they needed security or the RCMP to monitor meetings. Ian Howat, the city’s acting general manager, said he is baffled about what the big deal is around security at city meetings. “Ever yone automatically jumps to the conclusion that [security] is for council, but it’s not,” Howat said. “It’s for the public and to protect the public’s interest.”

Lantzville considers banning pesticides I movE dESigNEd to help protect watershed from residue runoff. By Tamara Cunningham The News BulleTiN

Lantzville will consider nipping the use of cosmetic pesticide in the bud this year to help protect its watershed. The District of Lantzville will discuss a ban on the use of cosmetic pesticides this fall as a precautionary measure for residents’ health and protection of its watershed. The move against pesticides has already been taken by more than 40 municipalities across the province, including Nanaimo. According to Andrew Mostad – the Lantzville councillor behind the push – the Canadian Cancer Society has made a good case about the potential health issues caused by cosmetic pesticides, including cancer. The agency has been pressing communities to adopt bans to educate people about the importance of using pesticides and protect against cancers. But Mostad also believes the ban could help protect the district’s water. During a 2011 debate about a residential farm operation, people raised concerns composted manure could be contaminating nearby wells. The fears were unfounded, but they raised questions about the potential of other, more-likely contaminants like pesticides and herbicides breaking down into soils and washing in the watershed, Mostad said. “Contaminated water is one of the main overarching themes in council over the [past] two years and I thought a pesticide bylaw would be a great step forward in protecting our watershed,” he said. The first-time council member

is advocating for Lantzville to roll out a ban that would prevent people from spraying pesticides for ornamental reasons. It would follow the same rules implemented by Nanaimo in 2010, which still allows residents to apply chemicals to control issues like carpenter ants and weeds growing through pavement cracks. People would have the potential to be fined for violations, but the bylaw would be used as more of an education tool to sway people toward a different approach to gardening, according to Mayor Jack de Jong. It could also be used to press the provincial government to ban the sale of cosmetic pesticides, he said. “The agricultural industry is probably the biggest user of pesticides and [lobbies the government]...so I think it’s important for a community like ours to balance that view and indicate we want to have these materials banned,” de Jong said. The statement is supported by the Canadian Cancer Society, which continues to advocate for more municipalities to take a stance against cosmetic pesticides as a public safety measure. More than 100 studies have shown a link to cancers like child and adult leukemia and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, said Nancy Falconer, the agency’s health promotion coordinator for Vancouver Island. “It’s really encouraging to hear the District of Lantzville is looking at this,” she said. The District of Lantzville is expected to debate a potential bylaw in October after it wraps up its new Urban Agricultural Plan. news@nanaimobulletin.com

L e g i o n n a i re s i n Lantzville have mobilized to create a permanent position to remember the region’s war dead. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 257 is looking for donations to help raise $150,000 to build a permanent cenotaph in Huddlestone Park at the corner of Lantzville and Huddlestone roads. The Lantzville branch has a small cairn at its location on Lantzville School Road, but it is a legion marker, not a true cenotaph, and being situated on private property makes it vulnerable to potential future development. The design for the new cenotaph has been approved and

The cost to purchase and engraved stone is about $300 to help raise money for the cenotaph project. “What better way to commemorate Canada’s veterans and preserve the memory of a loved one who has served our country?” asked Jim McEwan, fundraising committee chairman.

complEtES $4-millioN drive to help purchase equipment for NRGh’s new emergency wing. By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

Field work took on a new context when the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation hosted its 35th anniversary celebration at Dufferin Elementary School play field Thursday. The event ran from 1 to 4 p.m. when board members, supporters and well wishers stopped by to eat one of the 200 hotdogs served throughout the afternoon event and toss

Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s emergency ward. The announcement marked the end of a four-year fundraising project, which coincided with ongoing efforts to raise cash to purchase other equipment throughout the hospital. “So that was really big news and I had a tear in my eye because that was a lot of work and a lot of support from the community to make that a possibility,” said Feron Walker, foundation’s communications director. The foundation will announce a new fundraising program at its 2013 annual gen-

One of the highlights of the afternoon event was the announcement the hospital auxiliary had completed its campaign to raise $4 million to help purchase equipment for

eral meeting in September, but Walker is not prepared to reveal details about that project until it is officially approved. Special guest speakers included foundation president Maeve O’Byrne and Brenda Uhrynuk, executive director, medicine, emergency, renal services and NRGH site administrator. “(Uhrnyuk) talked about the partnership with NRGH and also with Lifeline,” Walker said. Lifeline was started by the Nanaimo Auxiliary to NRGH in the 1990s and was later taken over by the hospital foundation. The foundation also raises cash through the Code Brew coffee kiosk in the NRGH lobby and through proceeds from fees generated by two ATM cash machines in the hospital. “Not a lot of nonprofits have two revenue generating businesses,” Walker said. Attendance is estimated at more than 150 people throughout the afternoon.

Crowds flock to agriculture fair Music, food and – of course – the animals attract spectators to annual VIEX By Chris Bush The News BulleTiN

The darkest clouds hovering over the 2013 Vancouver Island Exhibition arrived with rain Friday and Saturday morning, which cleared up by the afternoon and did little to curtail attendance. Don Boyd, VIEX president, guesses fair attendance was about 20,000 for the weekend. “I think we’re pretty excitedly happy with the attendance,” Boyd said. “Friday was a little down, but Saturday and Sunday was fantastic.” Aside from a couple of reports of items going missing on the fair grounds and garbage infractions, few if any minor incidents marred the weekend’s festivities. “It was more the appreciation of the artists and the music,” Boyd said. “People just got into it right off the bat, which

was really neat. Every artist felt right at home. Every artist that came here felt loved, which is cool. That’s good on Nanaimo.” Boyd said anyone who missed VIEX 2013 headliner The Trews’s performance missed a sweet show. “You picture the albums and the songs on the radio and that’s what you got – with a crap load of energy.” The fair wasn’t all about on-

stage entertainment. Horticulture and agriculture – the foundation of the premier country fair – held fascination and excitement for visitors, too. “Next year’s the 120th year of the VIEX. We want to keep this going for 120, 121, 122. We lose a lot of things if we don’t use them and there’s not a lot of things that are 120 years old,” Boyd said. photos@nanaimobulletin.com

EDITORIAL

Time well spent volunteering A wise person once said: time is like money; it isn’t how much you have, but what you do with what you have. Certainly a commendable aspiration, considering how short life really is. The realities of modern day life, however, seem to strip away at our precious time at an ever increasing rate, making it difficult to spend time wisely. Faced with these tugs on personal time, it is remarkable and noteworthy that many among us find the time to volunteer. For that we are grateful. Volunteers help build welcoming, supportive communities and rich communities. Rich, not in the sense of wealth, but rather in terms of activities, events and services that help to enrich the lives of everyone in the community. In most communities, sports of any kind would not exist without the community members who volunteer their time to coach. Service organizations such as the Rotary Club or the Lions Club, to name a few, offer their time in service to the community, in addition to raising money for special community projects. Then there are events like the Vancouver Island Exhibition, which requires a small army of dedicated volunteers to ensure the Beban Park fair grounds are safe and tidy for the thousands of children and families who visit each year. Or the Fringetastic Theatre Festival, Infringing Dance Festival and Summertime Blues Festival – all taking place in August alone. All of this organized and run by volunteers, from the medical tent and trash removal up to the board of directors. Volunteers always say they give their time to give back to the community. Giving back to a community you care for is always time well spent. Try it, you just might like it.

Probably because kids like to flock together. Participation is the goal, yet the number of participating kids seems not to increase and even drops for a time when healthier food is introduced. So the best compromise seems to be to support healthier food for those kids participating because we end up with that number of healthier, more food-savvy kids.

Amalgamation more efficient, practical To the Editor,

Re: Lantzville residents raise concerns over water deal with city, Aug. 13. Lantzville residents, as well as those in the city, might want to look at the bigger picture. The bigger picture clearly reveals that, whatever Lantzville was, it has become a city neighborhood. Perhaps we should consider a more practical approach to that fact instead of continually fine-tuning the relationship over all of the utilities and infrastructure that we share or are hoping to share. Most Lantzville residents sleep and do a little gardening in their neighborhood just like residents of Harewood or Departure Bay but for much else they rely on city-based goods and services. We attend high school and university in the city. We use medical facilities in the city. We do most of our shopping and all of our banking in the city. We use city recreational facilities and seek

entertainment in the city. Our toilets flush to the Hammond Bay sewage treatment facility, which is RDN owned but located in the city and serving only Nanaimo and Lantzville residents. Now, apparently, we want city water. Increasingly availing ourselves of city services while remaining a separate municipality creates a number of problems; first, it is inefficient. How many extra civil servants are required to manage two separate but integrated water systems? Second, but perhaps more important, it creates a democratic deficit. Lantzville residents do not get to vote for a city council that has the power to regulate and set rates on services used by those residents. Theoretically, we could choose not to attend the Port Theatre or the aquatic centre but once our water systems are integrated it becomes more difficult to opt out. And why would we? Integration makes sense. It just doesn’t make sense without

political integration. Some Lantzville residents have a double standard. They want the convenience of city activity, facilities and now utilities, but they don’t want to pay. Some even disparage the city. Others may fear a loss of neighborhood autonomy if we joined the city just as residents of Departure Bay and Harewood did prior to their amalgamation with Nanaimo. Lantzville is unlikely to suffer from inattention in such an amalgamation. Nanaimo’s current mayor lives in Lantzville. Considering Lantzville’s demographics, it would be unlikely for us to be underrepresented on a Nanaimo city council. Instead of spending more money on integrating utilities and recreational facilities between big Nanaimo and little Lantzville, let’s talk about amalgamation. We may find that it is the more efficient and practical thing to do. Brian Blood Lantzville

Readers respond Feedback on news items Cats pose danger to small wildlife To the Editor,

Re: Cats seem to get special treatment, Letters, Aug. 15. I think it’s obvious why dogs must be controlled. There’s many instances of dogs killing wild animals, like deer, waterfowl, many instances of them killing livestock, and instances of them killing children. The danger cats pose is largely unnoticed by humans because their prey is so small. However it is well known cats kill millions of songbirds a year in North America alone. The National Wildlife Federation says cats are now the most abundant carnivore in North America. This includes feral and outdoor cats. It is no longer OK to accept the fact that our pets cats kill a bird or two a week. Cats should be kept indoors or contained if they are outside. Consider this quote from Wildlife Society’s

executive director, Michael Hutchins: “Allowing freeranging pet and feral cats to roam outside, breed unchecked, kill native wildlife and spread disease is a crime against nature.” George Hines via e-mail

Council can’t afford to keep spending To the Editor, Re: City spends freely, Letters, Aug. 6. While I 100 per cent agree with Terrance Wagstaff’s letter, the real Economics 101 lesson should be taught to Mayor John Ruttan and to the councillors, especially during these very hard economic times. That they continue to spend the taxpayers’ money on things that we cannot afford and overall do not need, we are all going to take the last ride in the canoe down the river of no return. In all, the writing is on the wall. So unless Mayor Ruttan and the councillors are blind as bats, they had

better read it, learn it and do the right thing for once.

Socialism isn’t just simply a nice word To the Editor, Re: NDP soul search going nowhere, B.C. Views, Aug. 1. A significant aspect of NDP post-election 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 ideological far leftwing base. While 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, 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. Shakespeare perhaps said it best in Romeo and Juliet: “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Confronted with the political reality of the concept of socialism proving itself to be an abysmal failure throughout the world, being replaced by more free enterprise, less government and less social engineering, the question naturally arises as to whether B.C.’s NDP party will be able to “jump over its own ideological shadow” and abandon its traditional stand on the principles of democratic socialism. Stripped of its defining political raison d’être, NDP soul searching to remain a legitimate electoral contender in the province would make it a journey of heading somewhere into the future without the benefit of a road map ... always carrying the baggage of its political past.

Kindness of strangers smooths traumatic accident situation To the Editor,

A few weeks ago I got into a car accident. I was driving to my boyfriend’s work to take him lunch and some work supplies when the car in front of me T-boned someone turning. I ended up running into their accident. I have never been in an accident before this and did not think I was in shock until I saw my front end was crumpled and leaking mass amounts of liquid. What I really want to bring to every reader’s attention is how a Good Samaritan can save the day. I was completely oblivious to my shock and injuries when a City of Nanaimo worker approached me (he had been in the oncoming lane and witnessed the accident). He asked me to sit and be calm and spoke with me a little. Shortly after, a kind lady came up to me in my car, she asked me if I was OK or hurt and told me she was a Level 3 firstaid attendant who witnessed the accident from a city bus. I informed her I was pregnant and scared and she stayed by my side until the paramedics arrived. The bus driver came to me, too, and offered his name and number as a witness to the whole accident. These people calmed me enough to focus and breathe, and the kind woman kept me company until the paramedics

had her verbal report of my shock and brief injury summary. My boyfriend arrived at the scene and the paramedics were very explanatory and calm and allowed him to ride in the ambulance with me to the hospital. The paramedics expressed care. As we all have experienced, some people just don’t seem genuine and these people did. This was the scariest day of my life thus far and because of the city worker, bus driver, a kind woman and paramedics, my boyfriend and I can be thankful and feel blessed. Because of this crash and having people to assist and reassure us, we got to the hospital in one piece (minus a car) and saw our tiny 15-week developed baby for the first time hiccough and squirm on a little ultrasound screen. Thank you Nanaimo for having heart and for those of us lucky enough to experience kind hearts, let’s pay it forward. To all drivers, please think of possibilities on your travels. Who’s driving cars around you? Is there a child on board, is there someone pregnant in the vehicle? Baby, Cruz and I would like to thank the good drivers and kind hearts and request everyone else to be a little more road conscientious and caring. Tyniel Child via e-mail

With the encouragement from his parents and staff at Albert Head he settled in and began to improve. An award for Most Improved Cadet is given to one member for each flight, which typically consists of 25 cadets. In July and August cadets completed t h e i r p ro g r a m s ,

which include military drill, sports, citizenship activities and more. The cadets also participated in adventure training classes, which included survival and a trip to the range to learn how to safely handle an air rifle. For more information please go to www.cadets.ca.

I know I should have my denture replaced, but I do not want to go through a long adjustment period again.

Full Foam Insulation TED CARSON

The first time is always the hardest. You are a pro now. You have learned the basics about eating, speaking and wearing a denture. There may be some adjustment, but it will probably be shorter and easier than the first time. If you have been wearing the same dental prosthesis for more than 5 years without having it checked, you are running unnecessary risks. Too many people believe that dentures are good for 20 years. Nothing could be further from the truth. Prolonged use of ill-fitting dentures can irritate the gums, tongue and cheek, and even cause the ridges of your mouth to shrink or develop loose pliable tissue to the point where it will be almost impossible to fit you with normal dentures. Your ability to chew may decrease and your face may acquire deep aging lines and wrinkles. When you look at the big picture, the temporary adjustment period is not so bad. For any questions regarding your denture needs, contact Carson Denture Clinic to book a free consultation with no obligation.

My memory foam topper stinks and isn’t flat. It looks like it has waves in it. What JOHN ROGERS can I do? Return it if you can, is the simple answer. What’s happened is most likely this topper has been produced off shore which causes a few issues. Most importantly is there are no environmental standards that the manufacturer has to meet, so you have no idea if what’s used to make the foam is safe. That’s the part that usually has the most smell. Then they take the full size product (before it’s been aired out properly) and squeeze it into a box that’s much smaller than the product itself, this action crushes the foam cells and is what gives that wavy effect. We have a great selection of toppers for you. Personally I’m not a memory foam fan.

When there is an imbalance in the DR. KAREN MATTERN spine, the primary fixations, which are the cause of the problem, begin to set up secondary ones which can be released easily with certain movements. This provides temporary relief, but the cause cannot be corrected with self-manipulation and it remains, often getting worse with time. You may have to release the secondary ones more and more often. The fact that you feel the need to do this, or that your back does it on its own is a warning sign that you need to have your spine checked by an expert and the cause corrected properly.

If it’s done correctly, a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) or The Free Home Evaluation TIM WAIT can be the next best thing to an appraisal in approximating the value of a property. The purpose of the CMA is to analyze data from properties similar to the subject property that has sold recently in order to project the realistic price at which the subject property would sell. I’m not an appraiser, but what I’ve always done is make upward and downward adjustments to the projected value of the subject property based on features and characteristics of the comparables I use. Some are based on “gut” feelings while other adjustments come about through rules of thumb I have developed from experience. Putting a value on real estate is an inexact science at best, and this methodology has worked pretty well for me over the years. I use a completely different method for projecting the value of land and property with residential development potential. How can you tell if the CMA you’ve been given is worth more than the piece of paper it’s written on? Call me at 713-1223 or email tim@timwait.com and I will let you know.

I just want to add my wife on title to my property.  Is there anything special I have to do or can you just TIAH M. WORKMAN add her for me? There are a few things we would need to know before we could proceed with the transfer.   Is this your principal residence?  Do you want to be registered as “joint tenants” (so there is a right of survivorship)?  And is there a mortgage on title?  If there is a mortgage registered against title to the property, you must ensure you contact your lender to advise them that you wish to add your wife.  Some lenders may require a mortgage application or assumption to be completed/signed in order for her to be added to title.   A transfer of title without advising your lender could constitute default under the mortgage.

If I can “crack” my own back or neck am I doing any harm?

All the top manufacturers of spas/hot tubs, insist on full foam insulation, as opposed to offering it as an option. The reasons are more than just reduced energy consumption, although that is the number 1 reason for doing so. Only full foam insulated units even qualify to be rated by the California Energy Commission. These spas are also much less likely to develop plumbing leaks, in comparison to non full foamed spas, because the plumbing lines are fully supported by the insulation so no sagging pipes can pull loose from glued joints or sockets. They are also much quieter in operation. These facts have been proven over and over! So why are some sales people pushing non full foam insulation? In some cases it is simply lack of knowledge. In other cases, they simply want to sell a lower price, but the consumer should understand that they will ultimately pay the price in higher energy consumption, and repairs to leaks in pipes or fittings. Do your research, and follow the facts! Make sure your spa choice is full foam insulated. You will save a lot of money over the life of your spa. We can prove, and guarantee it!

Family members of hearing impaired JON WATERHOUSE, BA people who use hearing aids often hold unrealistic expectations of what hearing aids will do. I recommend that family members be present when your loved one attends   a hearing test.   It is important that everyone understands the unique characteristics of a person’s hearing loss which can influence the outcome of the treatment plan recommended No two individuals have the same potential for improvement even if their audiograms are very similar. Age, type and degree of hearing loss, cognitive status, auditory processing status and other factors affect treatment outcome significantly. Your hearing professional will help you to understand these variables.

How can I help my daughter build self-esteem and a positive body image?

Programs designed specifically for girls can ANGELA SLADE, MA, RCC play a key protective role in their healthy development. Research states that girl-specific programs have overwhelmingly positive outcomes and benefits for participants especially programs aimed at health promotion, empowerment and leadership development. Overall, what appears to be important about girl-specific programs is that they create a safe place for girls to learn, share and build their self-esteem and a positive body image. Placing your daughter in one of our Fall 2013 CHICs programs can be a proactive benefit to help her build some skills. CHICs stands for Choosing Health and Integrating Changes.

autobody How do I pick the best auto body shop?

• You can tell a lot by just going to the shop. A good shop should be clean and well-organized, with modern equipment and professional staff. GARRY ROGUSKI • You should receive a clear, detailed written estimate • Insurance companies require a lifetime warranty (for as long as you own the vehicle) on paint and body repairs. If you’re not going through insurance, though, shops might not automatically give you a lifetime warranty. You have to ask for it, and get it in writing. • You also need to get a sense of whether or not they’re reputable and how long they’ve been in business • Ask to see finished vehicles – it should be impossible to tell the difference between the part that was repaired and the rest of the vehicle • Ask the shop what their certifications are • It’s a good idea to ask shops if they’re accredited by the major insurance companies, including ICBC • Don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you don’t feel like you’re getting the right answers, then go somewhere else.

Society supports foundation with cash for blood pumps

Members of the Canadian Society of German Culture raised $25,000 to support the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s Medical Imaging Department to purchase automatic blood pressure pumps, which will be used when patients recieve scans such as MRIs.

The Canadian Society of German Culture wanted to make a difference in the community and decided to support the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation. The Society donated $25,000 to the foundation to purchase two automatic blood pressure pumps for the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital’s medical imaging department. The blood press u re p u m p s a re

used when patients receive scans such as MRIs, CT scans and biopsies and provide a print-out of blood pressure patterns of patients under sedation. “The foundation is extremely grateful that the Canadian Society of German Culture saw the importance and purchased the pumps,” said Jim Crist, vicechairman of the hospital foundation, in a press release. Members of the Canadian Society of

German Culture said they wanted to make a different in the communities where their family members lived and chose the hospital foundation. The Canadian Society of German Culture was established nearly four decades ago to help maintain the culture and language for future generations. Membership in the organization is made up of immigrants and their descendants from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

With your contractor you can identify the upgrades needed and have your contractor install the eligible products. From there you can apply online for your incentive (most contractors will do this for you). Once that is complete your incentive cheque is mailed to you directly from BC Hydro.

How do I choose a fabric for my furniture that best suits my ROBERT BICHLBAUER needs? Not only do you need to choose the right product to suit your space but choosing the right cover for it is equally important.  You need to decide how the furniture will be used.  To keep it children and pet friendly, leather is excellent.  If you want a fabric, microfiber is a great choice.   Should you not find a microfiber that appeals to you, choosing fabric with high polyester, nylon or acrylic content is an excellent choice.  These threads are strong and durable.  Any professional sales associate will be able to explain the difference to you.

Aside from settling with the creditor or paying off the debt, there are two GARETH SLOCOMBE, CA, CIRP methods under the Bankruptcy & Insolvency Act to have a wage garnishee lifted. One is to file for bankruptcy and the other is to file a proposal to creditors. The proposal option is usually preferable if you have the ability to continue to make some reasonable payment to creditors. Once a proposal or bankruptcy is commenced all wage garnishees and wage assignments cease, even garnishees from Revenue Canada. The only type of garnishee which continues is a garnishee for maintenance or support under the Family Maintenance Enforcement Program. Since this type of debt survives a bankruptcy, the garnishee is not released in respect of post bankruptcy earnings.

KRISTA HENLEY &

These are all very good questions. Our advice is to SHARON FAUCHON call us and come in for a “Preapproval” appointment. We will tell you exactly how much money you need to save (Down Payment, Taxes, Legal Fees, Closing Costs etc.) so you have an accurate goal. We will also advise if there are any improvements/changes you need to make to your credit and with your income exactly how much the maximum is you could buy for. This is important information for you. As for interest rates, they are still historically low and we believe you have what’s historically considered “a low rate” be rates for at least another year+. They won’t stay where they are today but truthfully anything under 5.00% is something to be happy about.  Either way though, buying a home is likely the largest investment you will ever make so being rushed and pressured by the threat of rising interest rates or the perceived “end of a buyers market” is not what should be urging you to buy. We will happily have a meeting with you FREE OF CHARGE to determine what your best options are and help set a plan and timeline in place to meet your goals. We look forward to hearing from you!

I see two scenarios. The first is when you can plan ahead and prepare your meals. Buy DR. TONIA WINCHESTER some 1L wide-mouth mason jars. On Sunday evening make your favorite dressing, put it in the bottom of 5 jars. Add some whole cherry tomatoes, some chopped carrots or cucumber. You can even add leftover chicken or fish. Next, add your chopped leafy greens – lettuce, spinach, kale or chard. Lid the jars. Your healthy salad lunches are ready for each day of the week. At lunch time give the jar a shake to dress the salad, dump it out on a plate, and enjoy. The second scenario is when you don’t have any time to plan. It’s easy to eat well, avoiding junk or fast food. Just head to one of MANY grocery stores we have in town, and grab a salad from the deli counter. Easy breezy.

Rita Chiarelli exposes prisoners’ emotional struggles in her documentary Music from The Big House It makes people think about forgiveness and compassion. It’s a great film for that reason.

They recounted the tale of how they ended up in a maximum security prison and they shared their hopes for the future. “It was really emotional – the sadness, the desperation, in some of their eyes, the desperation in terms of loneliness,” said Chiarelli. “You hear their stories and get some insight into who these guys are. It’s not only bad people who do bad things.” It took 10 years for Chiarelli to get permission to enter the Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary, also known as Angola Prison, with a film crew. It started a decade before when she decided to take a trip to see “all the legendary and mythic place of the blues” said Chiarelli. Over the years the prison has housed some of the old blues legends as they served time for various crimes; some even recorded their music from the cell blocks. Chiarelli, a multi-award winning roots and blues artist, is often referred to as the Goddess of Blues.

several different music a l g ro u p s within the prison practicing various music genres. The resulting footage created Chiarelli’s documentary, Music From The Big House. The focus of the film is the prisoners’ love of music, their hopes for the future and quest for forgiveness. “The movie has become incredibly compelling and life changing,” said Chiarelli. “It makes people think about forgiveness and compassion. It’s an incredible film for that reason.” Music From The Big House shows at the Port Theatre as part of the Nanaimo Summertime Blues Festival Saturday (Aug. 24), 9 p.m. The screening includes a Q&A session with Chiarelli.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Now is a great time to explore new culinary horizons, Aries. You just may find a new type of cuisine that you never would have anticipated liking. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, if you feel like there haven’t been too many opportunities to socialize with friends, host your own gathering of friends and family. Start planning now. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, sometimes forgetting responsibilities and acting like a child for a day can be good for the spirit. Take a mental health day and don’t let worries get you down for a few hours. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, make travel plans before the summer passes you by. There has never been a better time to get out for a road trip or book a weekend jaunt to somewhere special. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, it can be difficult to upstage you, but someone else steps into the spotlight at work and it has you reeling for a little while. Be the bigger person and offer congrats.

Libra

Capricorn

Aquarius

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you might be ultra careful when choosing friends, but keep in mind those closest to you have been there through thick and thin. Remember that this week.

Pisces

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, despite the many changes you have made, you still don’t feel completely satisfied. You can’t put your finger on what is off, but you will get to it eventually. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, you have heard the saying that you catch more flies with honey. Be prepared to lay the honey on especially thick this week. Have fun with it. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, it’s hard to smile when you are feeling upset. This is not the week to let your true feelings show, though. Get through your obligations first. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, if you have been thinking about getting active to shed a few pounds, then try something fun like playing a sport. Exercise doesn’t have to mean time in the gym. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Certain aspects of your life are a work in progress, Aquarius. Other things you have under control. This week, focus on the things that may be holding you back. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, while creative pursuits tickle your fancy this week, some more mundane tasks require your immediate attention.

In Loving Memory of

Daniel Dettwiler June 26, 1920 ~ August 14, 2013

With great sadness we announce the passing of Dan Dettwiler, at the age of ninety-three, family at his side in Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. He was predeceased by his parents and sister. He is survived by his wife of 64 years, Leona, his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews. Born in Basel, Switzerland he immigrated to Canada with his mother, settling in Vancouver, B.C. He served with the Royal Engineers during WW ll. He worked as an electrical contractor throughout the province until 1973, then joined the B.C. government as an electrical inspector, serving the Nanaimo area until his retirement in 1985. He had a real love for the outdoors, pursuing his passion for hunting and fishing in the rivers or out cruising on the seas surrounding Vancouver Island. Also a great believer in serving others, gave freely of his time and energy as a member of the Nanaimo Fish and Game Club, Nanaimo Yacht Club, Canadian Power Squadron, and as a Mason and Shriner. Upon his request, Dan will be laid to rest with a family only graveside service at Cedar Valley Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, Dan would like donations made directly to the Salvation Army or the Shriners Crippled Children’s Fund. First Memorial Funeral Services (250)754-8333

It is with very heavy hearts and deep sadness we announce the passing of Lorne Rozzano. He passed away, with his wife and family at his side, after a courageous battle with cancer, which he fought to the end with bravery and optimism. Lorne was born in Duncan, BC to Sarah (Robertson) and Benjamin Rozzano. He is pre-deceased by his parents; brother, David (Rosie) in 2001; sister-in-law, Merilyn in 2010; and special cousin, Ken Medland in 2013. Lorne is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Sally; son, Brad Rozzano (Zonna); daughter, Diane Rozzano-Barraclough (Brian); and four cherished grandchildren of whom he was immensely proud: Michael Rozzano, Steven Rozzano, Bryna Barraclough and Brittany Barraclough. Lorne was in the construction industry on Vancouver Island for decades. With his long-time friend and partner Ron Guild, they owned Quinney & Fuller Construction. He was a member of the Nanaimo and District Pipe Band and the Canadian Scottish Regiment and local Historical Society. Lorne was an avid gardener and loved the game of golf. One of his greatest joys was spending time with his family and grandchildren. Many thanks to Dr. Steyne and the Sows Ear clinic staff, Russell Beales from Central Drugs, Dr. John Shepard of Vancouver General Hospital Leukemia Ward and staff; 4th floor staff of Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, as well as the nurses and doctors at the Palliative Care Unit at NRGH, who are truly exceptional. We welcome you in celebrating the life of Lorne on Friday, August 23rd, 1p.m. at the Nanaimo Curling Rink on Wall St. In lieu of flowers, donations made to the BC Cancer Society, or a charity of your choice, would be greatly appreciated.

“As a cancer survivor, I know how important chemo and radiation therapy are. But I was impressed to find out that local researchers are learning how to use and improve our bodies’ natural immune defenses against cancer. They’re looking into how to adapt existing therapies to produce a stronger immune response, and how to use our immune system to help target cancer cells. Because of research, we’re learning how to make the most of the protection our immune system gives us.” The BC Cancer Foundation funds advanced immune-based research on Vancouver Island. This research may lead to improved screening, diagnosis, and therapy for many types of cancer. Methods developed here will help lead to improved treatments and better outcomes for cancer patients here and around the world.

Jiu-jitsu club gaining prestige Inbrief I TOP TEAM takes third at grappling tourney in U.S. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

“I had projections laid out for how many students we’d have by certain periods of time. A threemonth target, a six-month target … and we obliterated every one of those,” he said. “Nanaimo’s been kind of starved for quality instruction in this field.” Wyse, an amateur mixed martial arts athlete looking to go pro, said Island Top Team has really balanced his game. “The first day I came in here, I got beat pretty good and it was a nice, humbling experience,” he said. He’d always been a stand-up fighter, but now he’ll feel more calm when the action goes to the mat. “I have yet to take anybody down in a fight, and I might just do it,” he said. The club isn’t just for MMA athletes or grappling competitors. Jiu-jitsu can be a form of self-defence or it can just be a workout and a hobby. Biernacki said sometimes people imagine it as an overly “macho” sport. “We still roll hard when we need to, but it’s not as much as most people think,” he said. “We’re not trying to wear anybody’s body down. We’re trying to make sure that this is accessible to anybody who wants to do it.” As the club’s membership and trophy case grow, so too does team spirit. Biernacki is proud to see that as he continues to try to build what he hopes will be a world-class club. And a club that pays its debts, like for example after a rolling back take. “I have never felt happier to part with $50 in my life, put it that way,” Biernacki said. MAT MATTERS … For more information, please visit www.islandtopteam.com.

There’s a science to jiu-jitsu, says Robert Biernacki, instructor at Nanaimo’s Island Top Team. It’s based on leverage, torque, body mechanics, physics. Yet sometimes it feels like magic. Biernacki likes to teach the rolling back take, a high-level manoeuvre and a signature Island Top Team move. “It’s the only technique that I’ve ever done in jiu-jitsu where your opponent is smiling after you do it to them,” he said. “They turn around and they’re like, ‘What did you just do?’” Biernacki has a standing offer of $50 to any of his charges who use it to submit an opponent in competition, and as it happens, his student Taylor Jones pulled it off this month at the Washington State Grappling Championships in Seattle. It was just one highlight of an incredibly successful weekend for the fledgling club. Shane Malone won four gold medals, Umesh Thillaivasan and Biernacki won two golds each, Eli Wyse took a gold and a silver and Jones earned two silvers. Despite having the smallest contingent at the tourney, Island Top Team managed third place in the team competition. “The results were even beyond my expectations,” said the instructor. Biernacki started up the team, based out of the Nanaimo Athletic Club, last October, and registration has been steady since then. LMD-NAN-NewsBull-Freedom-103125x35-BW.pdf

Nanaimo teens win on beach

GREG SAKAKI/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Umesh Thillaivasan, top, and Corey Young train Tuesday night at Island Top Team practice at the Nanaimo Athletic Club. Athletes at the Brazilian jiujitsu and martial arts academy found success on the competition circuit earlier this month in Seattle.

Local volleyball players came up big on the beach. Several Nanaimo youths medalled at Volleyball B.C.’s beach provincials earlier this month at Parksville. Riley Kazanowski and Caleb Harder won gold in the U17 boys’ division and Nanaimo also had gold medallists in both the U17 girls’ divisions. Victoria Behie and her Parksville partner won Tier 1 and Kaitlyn Franklin and a Campbell River partner won Tier 2. Robbie Calvin and a partner from Courtenay finished second in U17 and Jared Parhar and Kishan Parhar were third in U17. Jeff Webb and Quinn Mirau placed third in U15. “It was great to see a lot of Island kids do well and in particular the Nanaimo kids continue to have success with both the girls and the boys’ side,” said Stephen Epp, Volleyball B.C. regional coach. Some of the locals will go on to compete at nationals at Vancouver’s Spanish Banks starting Friday (Aug. 23). For more information, please visit www. volleyball.ca and click on ‘Beach Nationals.’

GREG SAKAKI/ThE NEwS BullETIN

Samira Rusman will try to swim from Gabriola Island to Swy-a-lana Lagoon on Sunday (Aug. 25) to raise money for Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock.

The Vancouver island Raiders returned to form saturday with a 56-3 win over the Valley huskers at Caledonia Park. The Raiders led from the outset, with 21 points posted on the scoreboard after the first quarter. A field goal in the second put the huskers on the board, but it was all Raiders after that point. The Raiders picked up 338 rushing yards, with 130 of those coming from Michael Ritchott, and another 23 from Jaeden Marwick, who also posted a touchdown. Marwick also posted 49 passing yards, while starting quarterback Jamie Ybarra racked up 218 yards threw for five touchdowns. The Raiders next travel to Kamloops to face the Broncos on saturday (Aug. 24) at hillside stadium. For more information, please visit www. viraiders.ca.

She’s climbing out of the swimming pool and heading for the open sea. Nanaimo’s Samira Rusman has come up with something a little different for a fundraiser – she’s going to try to swim from Gabriola Island to Swy-a-lana Lagoon. Rusman is a provincial- and national-level competitor with the Nanaimo Ebbtides masters swim club. She won a bronze medal at the Canadian championships earlier this year in the 200-metre freestyle relay. This Sunday (Aug. 25), she intends to swim approximately 30 times that far. “It will be my first open swim in the ocean after 30 years, but I think I will be OK,” she said. Rusman used to swim competitively in her teens in her home country of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and fled the conflict, son in tow, in the early ’90s to come to Canada. “I love Bosnia, it’s wonderful people, but when I immigrated here I started changing my views to life,” she said. “I have so [many] opportunities here that I didn’t have over there.” She isn’t sure if this sort of fundraiser would work there, but she hopes it can be successful here. She has good reason to try – a

friend’s granddaughter is living with cancer, and Rusman wanted to find some way to help. “I got inspiration from all these people that are raising money for cancer and everything else. I said, ‘I can do something for the community. I can do something different than just something for me, like competing,’” she said. “And I feel really good about this. Really good.” She’s done a couple of lake and ocean races this summer to prepare, but expects to be challenged as she goes out to sea. “I have to adjust my swimming and my style of swimming to waves,” she said. “If it takes longer, it takes longer, but I’m going to finish, that’s my goal … However long it takes, it doesn’t matter.” She expects to be on the water at least three hours on Sunday after diving into Descanso Bay at 9 a.m. That same day, the public is invited to try to match Rusman’s efforts with laps at Bowen Park’s Kin Pool from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Admission is by donation, with proceeds going to the B.C. Cancer Foundation. To donate to Rusman’s fundraiser, called Samira Swims for Kids with Cancer, visit www.copsforcancerbc. ca/tourderock/samirarusman.
