Plane pilot avoids injury in mishap Erin Haluschak Record Staff

A Courtenay pilot’s flight came to an abrupt end Tuesday morning as his plane landed off the runway at the Courtenay Airpark, but he walked away

without injury. Courtenay Fire Chief Don Bardonnex said upon landing, the private plane hydroplaned across the runway, slid over a patch of grass and into some blackberry bushes. He confirmed the pilot did

not suffer any injuries. “There was not even much damage to the plane. Everything held together and the props are in good condition.” The plane was towed away shortly after the incident. photos@ocmoxvalleyrecord.com

Although recent late August weather might feel more like a preview of fall than summer, a weather outlook for September to November predicts slightly above-normal temperatures and

normal rainfall for the region. According to The Weather Network’s 2013 Fall Outlook, part of the province from the tip of Haida Gwaii down the central and south coasts (including Vancouver Island) is predicted to be slightly warmer than normal. For the rest of B.C., they are

predicting near-normal temperatures. As for B.C. precipitation, the Outlook predicts near-normal rainfall, with the exception near Chetwynd south and east through the Rockies and Columbia mountains, where precipitation could ... see WEATHER ■ A2

ers should not be in the business of building and maintaining shelters or subsidized housing. “That is a provincial responsibility,” he said. Jangula instead envisions a subsidized housing unit at Braidwood, possibly containing bachelor-size suites with supervision. “That would be my vision,” he said. Last month, the Province committed $500,000 in ongoing, annual funding to ensure the Pidcock House emergency shelter in Courtenay continues to provide 24/7 support. The shelter, managed by the Salvation Army, began

round-the-clock operations in 2011. Since then, government has provided short-term funding for extended hours. The shelter provides 14 beds for homeless individuals, as well as showers, laundry, meals, and access to skills training and recovery services. Community ministries director Brent Hobden says the Sally Ann is desperately short on shelter beds and transitional housing. He notes many frequenters at Pidcock stay a month. “We put them through all of the case plannings, we help them with their goalsettings, we help them

be above normal. The Weather Network’s Chief Meteorologist Chris Scott said it is looking like a fairly typical fall. “We’ll see mostly near-normal temperatures across the country with pockets of above normal in some places,” he noted. He added fall is considered a transition season, so temperatures will fluctuate. “Most of Canada should enjoy warm, dry stretches in September, but on cue, the weather will start to change

quickly as we go into October and November. Although the last few weeks of August have been cool and wet, temperatures will return to normal for the Comox Valley beginning this weekend with the sun

emerging, just in time for Labour Day. Environment Canada is predicting highs of 21C and 22C for the weekend through to Tuesday, with a mix of sun and cloud for the beginning of the week. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

ter, we absolutely do,” Hobden said. “The one that we have is significantly too small for our community, and has no ability for programming. There’s no space for it. We need that component of the transitional house that’s attached to it. “We need more beds,” Hobden added. “We could stumble through for another couple years on the 14 beds that BC Housing has. We have the ability to put an additional four that the Salvation Army pays for.” But Jangula considers a shelter to be a temporary solution that does not solve homelessness. “We have limited money provincially and

municipally,” said Jangula, who feels a subsidized housing unit would take pressure off the shelters. “It’s a win-win.” ••• The Comox Valley Housing Task Force hosts a public forum Oct. 16 at the Florence Filberg Centre. It will address issues related to homelessness, access to affordable housing and healthy communities. Feedback will be used as a starting point for project planning.

Comox Valley

Master composters are people that encourage people in their community to start composting, and offer support to people who are already backyard composting and may be having difficulties or need encouragement. They will also be an essential part of the region’s solid waste management plan to reduce the amount waste going into the landfill.

We are having our ANNUAL OPEN GARDEN with over 600 different Dahlia’s large & small. If you see something you like, you may order tubers for the spring. Cut flowers will be available for sale.

What’s in it for me? • raise awareness of the benefits of composting • to encourage more people to compost at home • to support those already composting to ensure they are successful in maintaining their composting activities. If you’re enthusiastic about achieving these goals then the master composter course right for you.

Comox District Teachers’ Association president Steve Stanley says teachers are

excited about PLC time. “Teachers will have time during their working day a couple of times a month to get together and talk about curriculum changes, and talk about innovation and new ideas that can improve student learning, so we’re looking forward to that,” he says. Elwood notes nearly 170 teachers came out to an optional two-day PLC professional development workshop, held last week. “It’s optional, but they’ve chosen to attend,” she continues, noting the turnout indicates teachers’ enthusi-

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair is on a nationwide tour to speak about his party’s plan to abolish the Senate. He will be in Courtenay on Thursday (Aug. 29) at 6:30 p.m. at the Zocalo Café. Dubbed the ‘roll up the red carpet’ campaign, Mulcair is spreading the NDP claim that the Senate is full of unelected party hacks who have no business writing or rewriting Canada’s laws. The party has long called for the Senate to be scrapped. Mulcair launched the campaign Monday with a speech on Parliament Hill in Ottawa. He says the Liberals and Tories have fostered a culture of entitlement when it comes to Senate appointments, noting spending scandals involving Patrick Brazeau, Mike Duffy, Mac Harb and Pamela Wallin. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government has referred questions about Senate reform to the Supreme Court of Canada. It has asked whether Parliament can enact fixed terms for senators for eight, nine or 10 years, or for the life of two or three Parliaments of four years each. According to the Parliament of Canada’s website, “The Senate is the upper house in Canada’s bicameral parliamentary democracy. The original Senate, created in 1867, had 72 seats, but more seats were added as the country grew. The Constitution now directs that the Senate have 105 appointed members. “The Senate was created to counterbalance representation by population in the House of Commons.” With a file from CBC

New role for CVEDS involves notable eyesores

Renee Andor

The Comox Valley Economic Development Society (CVEDS) will take on a new role over the next five years — and that role could help rid the Valley of some well-known eyesores. CVEDS’s five-year strategic plan outlines 19 programs, 14 core and five support, including many ongoing programs such as its Destination Marketing program. But, the plan also includes something brand new to CVEDS, a Land and Development Impact Analysis program, something executive director John Watson says came out of community consultations with industry and community stakeholders. “What we were hearing was that there’s significant parcels and properties within the Valley, within the municipalities, that either could be developed to a greater potential or perhaps aren’t being developed at all,” says Watson. “For example, the Palace Theatre site in downtown Courtenay was raised numerous times as a site that might require additional facilitation, programs, a little bit of work and attention, not only by our office, but in this case, the City (of Courtenay) and perhaps a few other regulatory agencies, to get it to the point where it’s something that we can promote as a community as needing development.” Part of the program will see CVEDS facilitate discussions with landowners, local government, other regulatory agencies and potential investors and developers about some key sites in the Valley that can be developed. “The old Field Sawmill site is still sitting there, lands adjacent to the airport; there’s opportunities out there, former school district sites,” Watson says, as he lists a few examples. CVEDS will also continue to identify sites where it can help facilitate these discussions. Encouraging more uniformity in all Comox Valley local government development review processes is another aspect of the program, including suggesting process improvements from other jurisdictions. Watson adds an impor-

the CVEDS board is expected to set the year one tactical plan goals at its next board meeting, in early October. To view the strategic plan, visit www.investcomoxvalley.com.

The final draft of the five-year strategic plan was completed in April, and CVEDS has now presented it to the four main local governments. The next step will be to create annual tactical plans, and

Silver bullets visiting Valley Twenty Airstream trailers from U.S. in convoy on the Island Erin Haluschak Record Staff

The original silver bullets are coming through the Comox Valley this week. Arriving from New York to Texas and all points in between, 20 Airstream trailers are taking over part of Seal Bay RV Park, the second rally of its kind, said owner Theresa Butcher. “They came up last year and they’re spending 15 days on the Island going from Port Hardy to Victoria,” she added. Butcher explained the park has a new group site area with a covered pavilion, which appeals to the Air-

A budget helps you plan your monthly expenses by looking at your income and working backwards. At the end of each month, you should be able to track your spending habits and see how much you can afford to save. Sticking to a budget is difficult for most people as we tend to not keep track of every penny spent or end up setting unrealistic saving goals. Beyond forming a budget, proper financial planning considers many factors, such as your situation, investment objectives, risk tolerance and estate considerations. A comprehensive view of your present circumstance will help better define future goals. Before preparing a plan, here are a few things to consider:

F. Sidney (Sid) Williams - Order of Canada The Order of Canada is awarded to Canadians who have made significant contributions to Canada and fellow Canadians. Sid Williams has done this in abundance. Someday, someone will do Sid justice in his own story. Our history will have to make do with a brief litany. Sid is a local product, discovered by Bill Stubbs, encouraged and polished by his tutor. Bill and Sid collaborated in a variety of presentations for many years. Sid is known for his continuous and unselfish contributions to the local theatre, where he has done everything

from serious drama to painting and moving props. He is recognized for his support of and action in the Courtenay Recreational Association, the restoration of the Sid Williams Civic Theatre, and local outdoor organizations. For 24 years he served as an alderman. His appearances at individual functions are as numerous as his characters and costumes. Sid Williams is nationally known for his acting in the Barkerville Players, The Beachcombers and TV ads. Probably his greatest triumph was the characterization of "Century Sam" in 1958.

The Order of Canada, the Hamber Award for Acting, Freeman of the City of Courtenay, and the admiration of all testify to the recognition of Sid Williams as a citizen second to none.

Century Sam was found wandering along the sandbars of the Puntledge River. He was searching for gold as he had done 100 years earlier. The tumult about the coming 1958 Centenary of British Columbia had wakened him from his sleep. During the ensuing 12 months, he was swept up in the waves of jubilant celebration. His faithful little donkey Rosie plodded along and patiently endured crowds and noise. Sam's appearances throughout the province were delightful affairs. His sense of humour, love of life and thespian ability made him a perfect ambassador. Dignitaries from Premier W.A.C. Bennett to mayors of our B.C. towns were often the butt of his spontaneous jokes. Sam panned for gold in the fishpond of Government House and in the fountains of the legislative buildings. Surely this man who finally went back to his peaceful sleep would have loved Sid Williams.

INITIATIVE PETITION

JOHNNY MacRAE AND Shayne Avec I Grec are 2 Dope Boys in a Cadillac.

The Comox Valley is gearing up to welcome Spoken Word that crackles, rumbles and creates tiny, unbearably stimulating explosions in your psyche. Back after a critically acclaimed performance at the Elevate the Arts festival on June, 2 Dope Boys in a Cadillac will perform at the Union Street Grotto Thursday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. 2 Dope Boys in a Cadillac are preachers of The Anthropocalypse in the guise of barefoot beards with voices. To further the good word of bad things they have spent the past three years creating the world’s first psychedelic talk opera. They are also six-15ths of the 2013 Victoria Poetry Slam Team. Johnny MacRae enjoys the mouth-feel of words. A while back, he was the underground slam champion of Canada. And before that he was the aboveground slam champion of Vancouver.

Mitch Moxley, international journalist and author of Apologies to my Censor, The High and Low Adventures of a Foreigner in China, will visit the Comox Valley this Friday.

Fundraiser for SPCA

Farmers show appreciation Are you one of those folks who scramble to pack up the kids and dog and race to make sure you make it to the market before noon? Or someone who is there bright and early each Saturday and wandering the market to peruse the produce before the vendors are even done setting up? Or maybe you can only manage to make it to the market once a month for a coffee and a scone. Some visitors who come to the market are there to shop. They have come and gone with their groceries before many people get out of bed, and some linger, listening to the entertainer, meeting up with friends and getting growing advice or cooking tips from farmers. The relationships that are nurtured at the market between vendors and customers are part of what make the market so different from the grocery store. Everything that’s sold at the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market is grown or produced in the Comox or Strathcona regional districts. So when you buy your carrots from Moss at Merville Organics, or chicken from Joyce and Bill of Celiam Acres, or rush to get the first peas or strawberries of the season, you are helping preserve farmland and create sus-

tainable food systems that provide access to healthy fresh food for our families, year round. When food is grown sustainably and harvested ripe, at most the day before market and at best, the morning of, the health value in that food is tremendous, vastly different from anything shipped, or stored in a large supermarket. Whatever kind of market visitor you are, the farmers’ market appreciates the effort you make to come out and support your local vendors. Every year on the last weekend of summer, in the peak growing season, the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market invites all of their patrons to come and spend some time celebrating the relationships made at the market. This week, McClintocks Farm will harvest a whole lot of corn to share, and Bill and his team will cook it up to share. Head down and enjoy some corn on the cob and celebrate in the bounty of this Valley. The farmers’ market runs every Saturday year round, from 9 a.m. to noon, April to Oct. 26, at the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds and then back into the Native Sons Hall until April. — Comox Valley Farmers’ Market

New home for Alberni Project in Comox Mall Permanent location will allow TAP to expand its displays The Alberni Project — HMCS Alberni Memorial will open in a new home in the Comox Centre Mall on Sept. 1. TAP, based in the Comox Valley, is a mobile memorial and exhibit honouring the men who served on the Canadian corvette HMCS Alberni and German submarine U480. This new permanent location in the mall will allow TAP to expand its displays and resource centre to the public through out the year and will provide a home base for the current smaller mobile exhibit as well as Year of the Veteran events in the Comox Valley scheduled for next year. TAP is a privately funded, communitysupported program devoted to preserving the history of the events surrounding HMCS Alberni and U480. It provides a location where the sharing of stories, artifacts and history can be shared in a quiet safe environment and acts as an education tool for future generations of Canadians. The most important function of TAP is that it gives the families of the men of HMCS Alberni a place where their loved ones will always be remembered for their dedication and sacrifice for Canada. “This has been a long-term goal for members of the Project to have a full-time exhibit centre for the HMCS Alberni memorial,” founder Lewis Bartholomew said. “Smaller versions of TAP have been shown many times in the Comox Valley and many other locations

LOCAL CHEF JAMES Derry volunteered to wield a paint roller for the new Alberni Project exhibit hall at the Comox Centre Mall. on Vancouver Island in the 10 years since I moved it up from Seattle. “Its growing popularity has required

that TAP be on display for longer than the usual five to 10 days it normally is shown per year in the Comox Valley. This new opportu-

nity has been provided by partial sponsorship by the Comox Centre Mall and local residents in support of the local memorial.” It is only fitting for TAP to open Sept. 1, as Sept. 3 has been designated Canadian Merchant Navy Veterans Day across Canada, and there will be a variety of events all month in honour of our Canadian Merchant Navy Veterans. As part of the new facility, there will be a focus display dedicated to the Canadian Merchant Navy Veterans with additional display units on loan from Veterans Affairs and Canada Remembers. The role of women during the Second World War is also being added as small individual panels and a new display sponsored by the Ralph Williams family will make its debut as part of the permanent exhibit. TAP will be open during regular mall hours and admission is

always free. To volunteer at the exhibit, or to become a sponsor of

Would you believe you can grow pineapples here? Who says you cannot grow pineapples in the Comox Valley? Well...actually, they are not the fruit-eating variety but the garden type — pineapple lilies or Eucomis spp. But the flowers sure look like miniature pineapples! Our plants always create a bit of a stir when visitors encounter them in the garden. And late summer into autumn is when they really shine. The plant itself is a low rosette of straplike leaves. Leaf length is dependant on species. There are some dwarf varieties. Many individual star-shaped flowers are formed in a dense

cluster at the top of the stem and topped with a crown of leafy bracts. The whole thing looks very much like a small pineapple on a stick! There are 10 species in this genus and we have two of them in our garden — Eucomis comosa and E. bicolour. So far. The plant breeders have been busy hybridizing recently and the latest cultivars are stunning. One of these with lovely deep rich burgundy leaves has found its way into our garden. If you like dark leaves for the wonderful accent they add to your landscape design this is definitely a must-have plant. It is called Euco-

DUCHESS OF DIRT

LESLIE COX mis comosa ‘Sparkling Burgundy’. A very nice change from the usual medium greencoloured leaves of the species. Eucomis are native to South Africa, Swaziland and Lesotho (a small country within the country of South Africa) where it can be found growing as high as 9,100 feet (2,800

metres) above sea level. Most references list our two species in Zones 8 to 10. This means we have to dig up the bulbs every fall, dry them and store them, as they are not hardy in our Zone 7 region of the Valley. But if you know John, he has to push the envelop sometimes. He has been leaving our Eucomis bicolor bulbs in the ground over the last two winters and they have come up each spring. The fact eucomis grow at higher elevations is our first clue to

John’s successful trial. However, last winter was a mild one and the year before we had good snow cover out here in Black Creek. Third year, he may not be so lucky and I have warned him. Not always a good idea to get too smug. It sometimes comes back to smack you in the face. Traditionally in its native countries, the bulb and root parts of some of the pineapple lily species are used in medicines. Shavings are boiled in water or milk and then added as an ingredient to infu-

sions for treating pain and fever. Surprisingly, its use in traditional medicine is what has this plant noted as ‘Near Threatened’ on the

International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Red List in its native country. Scientists believe harvesting of the

in its native country. A shame it is declining where it has such a noble medicinal use in one of the poorest regions of the world. Thankfully, though, this particular plant genus remains very popular as an ornamental plant in other countries which means it assuredly will never become wholly extinct. I hope.

Confusion is always a bad thing amidst traffic

Back to school! Time to learn about waiting your turn, lining up nicely, being courteous to others and following the rules. No, I’m not talking about students, I’m talking about the adults because many of the traffic problems found in school zones are caused by parents driving their children to school. Even the occasional teacher

might bend the rules if they are late for work. We all know that school zones are in effect on regular school days. Until recently, these days were determined at the provincial level and were uniform across B.C. Today, the school calendar is determined by each school district, so there could actually be a difference from one district to another.

BEHIND THE WHEEL

TIM

SCHEWE

For safety’s sake, it’s probably best to slow to the posted 30 km/h limit throughout the school year unless it is a statutory holiday. Let’s change the viewpoint from go to stop now. Parking around schools may create its own hazards by limiting visibility and proper movement. You

probably don’t need me to remind you that children act on the spur of the moment without thinking their actions through. This makes them a significant hazard, as they pop up in unexpected and inappropriate places. You increase the problem when you park or drive in places that you are not supposed to. Confusion is a bad thing in traffic. I’ve investigated child pedestrian deaths and I can assure you that it is not something you want to be involved

in, even remotely. Take a few seconds extra around school zones. It won’t cost you much more out of your day. In fact, the savings

VIASTEEL ERECTORS WORK on a new roof for the Denman Island Back Hall.

Denman roof almost done Denman Island is getting a new roof on the back of its community hall, thanks to funding provided by the Government of Canada’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund. Last year was the hall’s 100th birthday, and she got a makeover, a whole new foundation and a little “cosmetic” work done with the help of several government agencies. Now, islanders are finishing off the look from toe to top with a brand new roof on the Back Hall. The roof is scheduled to be done by the Blackberry Fair this Sunday. Come to the fair and see the beautifully finished hall for yourself.

There will be country fair displays and competitions of fruits, flowers, vegetables, herbs, eggs, preserves, pickles, wine, beer, baking and photography to feast your eyes. To feast your mouth, there will be an apple tasting, and, of course, pie, ice cream, hamburgers, samosas, and all manner of locally made food. You can also enjoy music by local artists and activities and entertainment for the children. Children, bring your teddy bear for the picnic at 11. Come and see the Hall with its new roof on the back and make a day of it. — Denman Island Community Centre

Some advice about how to make learning safe It’s that time of year again‌ when we’re setting the tone for the year ahead. Will it be, here we go again, what a grind? Will it be anxious and fearful? Or will it be positive and optimistic? As children and teens head back to school, I’ve heard comments like, “I can’t wait to start school,â€? “I’m excited about all I’m going to learn this year,â€? and “I’m really looking forward to band because this year I get to play percussion.â€? Children and teens naturally look forward to new learning, new possibilities, re-connecting with friends and making new friends. Our job as

parents is to encourage and support them. The main questions I’m hearing from parents are about how to do that, in a world of social media. Parents struggle with questions like: Should we give our pre-teen a smart phone, or not? Should we allow a Facebook account? A blog? A Twitter account? How much computer time? How can we keep our children safe in a world of social media, amidst the horror stories about online bully-

THE BEACHWOOD CAFÉ on

Cliffe Avenue is under new ownership.   I ate there this past Saturday and was pleased with my breakfast. The eggs were a proper shade of yellow, the potatoes freshly made, and the coffee was good. New owner Julie Isvik says she wants to expand her menu to accommodate her customers who have dietary restrictions. Glutenfree alternatives are already available.

SATURDAY MORNING I am wa-

tering my flowers and trees — and wondering why the first, in a line of small ornamental cedars was dying — well, wonder no more — proud as punch, along comes a women walking a type of bulldog (beautiful dog) and she stops in front of my poor little dying cedar … the dog lifts his leg ... and I said, well, no wonder that tree is dying! Don’t let your dog pee on that tree. She told me that the dog was not going do that. Now let’s stop right here. I am a mystery buff ... looks to me like there’s something afoot. Let’s look at the clues — woman stops dog in front of (you got it) poor little dying ornamental cedar), dog stops and lifts his leg to the cedar. Did he pee or not ... couldn’t tell ... I call ‘em clues. Walking away, she didn’t seem to grasp the fact that letting her dog pee on my shrub was wrong. I did tell her she had no class AND what is worse is she demonstrated that she has no respect for other peoples’ property. I am not sure if it was arrogance or ignorance. Oh, yeah, poor little cedar is dead.

BEEF TO THE rude driver of a roofing truck! I was disgusted with what I witnessed the other morning. What makes you think you can park your truck at a gas station pump leave it there and walk across the road to get coffee? Then when the gas station attendant asks you to move your truck so others can gas up, you charge at her yelling and screaming disgusting profanity! That poor lady was just doing her job that morning and did not deserve to be treated that way. You should be embarrassed with the way you represented your company and know that I will not be calling that company for any roofing jobs. JUST A FEW days ago I wrote to an

editor of a car publication that I would not renew my yearly subscription because of sexual jokes.  Fortunately, they promised me that it would not happen again. Now I am facing an article about “provocative ads initiated by Vancouver Science World.” Fortunately, the ads were rejected by the Pattison Group.  Some of the ads are so risqué that they have been banned from bus shelters. Rob Tarry of Rethink Communications is quoted as follows: “We knew we were playing with dynamite.” On the end of his reply he said “while being careful not to offend anyone.”  Is this the way our tax dollars are spent through a publicly funded exhibit such as Science World?  My question is, if I do not respond to this outrageous misuse of public funds what will I financially assist the next time. This is not a matter of innocence and “unintended consequences,” as we understand in the following quote from Brian Tisdall, president and CEO of the museum.  “We’re sometimes on that picket fence between bland and outrageous, we felt we could do this without being too far out there,” ending “it was the responsible thing

to do.” “Responsible” … ‘playing with dynamite,” an extraordinary combination I would think, in the meantime “being careful not to offend anyone.”

MAKE YOUR PAST your present.

This is the slogan of the Alberni Pacific Railway.  As expected our grandson Luke also became an enthusiastic passenger as his brothers did in previous years.  This time there was a prelude to this event, connected to the railway station is to be found a hundred year old Buick-McLaughlin automobile and yes … in excellent running order; as well trucks and other interesting mobiles were on display, like a cement three-wheeler turning 360 degrees. After we arrived from the train ride and were greeted and instructed by James the tour guide and offered delicious cold water we marched towards the Mclean Mill National site. We listened to his funny and most entertaining explanations regarding the sundry historical buildings on this venue and I expected an invitation to follow of walking to the small theatre for some excellent entertainment as offered before. To my surprise and disappointment this was not happening due to reducing the overall cost of this excellent event. The thought came to my mind that it would be wonderful if this missing part in the chain of entertainment could be filled through volunteer entertainers in the future. Personally, I would be happy to fill this gap with some hours of musical entertainment with songs of the days now long gone.

Election reforms welcome The Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development is considering banning anonymous contributions in municipal elections. The B.C. government is considering reforms to legislation that governs our every-third-year local elections. Details are expected in a white paper next month. With local politics in some B.C. cities starting to emulate Vancouver’s party system and thirdparty campaigning, the time has come for voters to know who the would-be kingmakers are. Minister Coralee Oakes indicates that new legislation will require third-party advertisers to register and disclose their identity. Time allowed for consultation will delay campaign spending limits for candidates, organizations and third-party advertisers until the 2017 civic elections, but those changes are expected, too. Oakes, who said she expects improved transparency and accountability, calls the reforms the greatest modernization of local government election legislation in nearly 20 years. Changes would affect voting for municipal councils, school boards, regional districts and Islands Trust. Although the response from the NDP local government Opposition critic is typically critical, the president of the Union of B.C. Municipalities is pleased by the proposals. That’s no surprise considering the UBCM has been recommending local election reform. The Comox Valley, for instance, is not close to Vancouver-style civic politics in which the NPA, Vision, COPE and the Green Party collectively spent $5.2 million in the 2011 elections. Vancouver’s major municipal parties spent more than $15 for each vote they got. In the Comox Valley, though, the shadowy Common Sense group changed the face of municipal elections in 2011 by endorsing candidates and pounding home the issue of local government spending. In 2014, we should know who they are as well as the people who form the inevitable left-wing backlash. editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com Record Question of the Week This week: Twenty-nine per cent of respondents said MusicFest should receive municipal government funding. Next week: Does splitting the Comox Valley into two federal ridings make sense? Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord. com and vote in the Poll on the mainpage. The weather is cooler and wetter, but the tradeoff is a lifting of the campfire ban in provincial parks, which have set reservation records this summer.

The B.C. minister of environment’s ministerial briefing book warns her department isn’t staffed to meet existing oil spill risks, let alone new ones.

Creating need where none exists Dear editor, John B. Challinor ll, director of corporate affairs for the Nestle Corporation, had many statistics to throw around against North Island College’s new reusable bottle water-filling station. It is extremely touching how concerned he is about the lack of academic performance that will occur when students can no longer buy bottled water on campus and will be encouraged to use water fountains and refilling stations full of free public water. He states info from a study “a mere two-per-cent drop in body water can trigger short-term fuzzy memory, trouble with basic math and difficulty focusing...” It makes one ponder how did civilization ever advance without a plastic bottle of Nestle’s water by the side of every citizen? How did poor Albert Einstein ever figure out the Theory of Relativity or Thomas Edison invent the

How did poor Albert Einstein ever figure out the Theory of Relativity or Thomas Edison invent the light bulb with their dehydrated brains?

L. Krainer light bulb with their dehydrated brains? In fact, how did any middleaged person ever make it through university and work in challenging careers when bottled water didn’t even exist? The facts that John B. Challinor ll does not quote are that Nestle has mastered the marketing of its products by creating need when none exists and successfully convincing consumers their products are indispensable. The saddest example of this is

Nestle’s international campaign aimed at Third World mothers to switch from breast feeding to Nestle’s infant formula when it was proven that the babies had over a six-times-higher survival rate if exclusively breast-fed for six months. Nestle’s tactics made the World Health Organization set new marketing rules against these marketing practices. Another fact is the growing Pacific Trash Vortex full of plastic particulate suspended in the upper water column with an estimated size larger than Canada or eight per cent of the surface of the Pacific Ocean. We are learning that plastic is a substance that never really goes away. Perhaps Mr. Challinor ll and Nestle could help with this problem before selling more single-use plastic for a non-existent L. Krainer, need. Courtenay

No charm and no atmosphere Dear editor, When we returned home in the spring of 2012, it was with anticipation of the new Crown Isle Shopping Centre. And what a disappointment it was — just another big box group of stores, no style, but we thought, oh well, it’s early days, maybe as they continue it will get better. When we returned home this year and the paper showed the plans for the new additions to the development we were astounded. Now in this week’s paper, they have announced it’s pretty well final and we are going to have another auto service centre for cars, and why on earth do we need another service centre in Courtenay, there are so many of them, and then they announced a drive- thru restaurant, and we all figured out it would be McDonald’s.

Well, really, why would they put a really nice restaurant with style and good food when they could have an inexpensive burger place, in a big box shopping centre that doesn’t have any style anyway? And a drive-thru to boot! Just what we need — another congestion to deal with at Ryan and Lerwick. What happened to the idea of a village-style concept with some nice little shops, restaurant, coffee shop, someplace that people would love to walk to and spend some time there? The idea that was proposed at the big meeting a couple of years ago was that the architect was going to do a drive-through to get the proper feel of Crown Isle community for the design of the shopping centre. Well, in fact, other than being in the location, it does not in any way reflect Crown Isle. You

don’t see any flat roofs, or square houses with metal siding in Crown Isle. But, in the spring, we thought, as before, it’s early days and maybe it will get better. Not so, it’s not going to get any better at all, just another big box store shopping centre, no charm, no atmosphere. The Scotts of Crown Isle, Courtenay

Comox Air Show could be better Dear editor, We attended the air show, and for the most part it was pretty good. My wife and I came with our 13-year-old and her friend. The traffic organization by the RCMP and base personnel was excellent and mirrored previous years. The air show itself was also good although slightly smaller. However, the entrance lineups and food vending offered were terrible. First, we had pre-bought our tickets at Thrifty Foods and were shocked to find that we had to walk to the back of a nearly third of a kilometre lineup. There were six security tents and one lineup to them. In previous years there were multiple lineups and we remember wondering which

lineup was faster, only to find website and you really have they were all about the same. to dig to find that info. From the back to the front of It also says you cannot this single lineup took about bring homemade food in, only one hour to prepackthe security aged and/or tent.

Island railway no longer viable

Dear editor, I would like to applaud Robert Porter for his excellent letter regarding the E&N Railway. I hope more people are beginning to realize that the railway is a thing of the past on Vancouver Island. I wonder how many people have actually walked the tracks and seen what terrible shape they’re in. I also wonder how many people know that the tracks and trestles are over 100 years old, and have hardly had any repairs done to them. I’ve walked along them. They all need replacing, as they’re far past repairing. Graham Bruce, CEO of the Island Corridor Foundation, tells us that it will only cost the taxpayers $15 million, which has been approved by the provincial and federal governments, pending a service agreement with VIA. That would just be the beginning of a taxpayer-funded albatross far into the future. As Mr. Porter said, it will cost at least $150 million to fix the railway properly. There is a small group of self-serving politicians and ex-politicians, which Mr. Bruce is, who are trying to get the taxpayers to fund their interests. As Mr. Porter said, the railway line should be used as a dedicated multiple-use path. They did it in the Kettle Valley, and Anne Alcock, it`s a very popular trail. Union Bay

unhealthy doughnuts and frozen fruit pops. As for water you had to stand in the same long lineups just to buy water, if you didn’t pass out before then. I ended up getting water from the wellmanned beer garden for, get this — $2 per bottle! As well, they should have perhaps sold water right at the gate or even given it away for free for those that they forced to dump theirs. As for food there were no vendors selling hot dogs or burgers near the runway, only one-hour pizza and miscellaneous vendors. Near the hangars our friends waited two hours in a lineup for a burger. Previous years did not have these problems. Sterling Stump, Qualicum Beach

Globe swings on its own Dear editor, I find it rather amusing when somebody like John Martin states that, “Some people will never face reality,” then goes on to stand on his little high horse and lecture us about how we are making the globe unable to support human civilization. Isn’t this rather a case of the pot calling the kettle black? I agree that there is a swing towards global

warming but the globe has been swinging back and forth from warm to cold for millennia without man’s help, and with more than 200 volcanoes worldwide daily pouring many, many tons of carbon and other noxious substances into the atmosphere which haven’t destroyed the ability of the globe to support civilization, then I doubt man’s puny efforts with

World needs songs like one from twins Dear editor, Recently on Global TV there were two segments about twins Dani and Lizzy. They co-wrote and performed this song and were kind to download it on You Tube. The name of the song is Dancing in the Sky. I wanted all your readers to have a chance to listen to

this incredible piece of music. This is for all of us who have lost someone close to us. The world needs music such as this song. Linda Jarvis, Courtenay

his motorcars etc. will have little effect towards it. All we can hope is that the swing will not be too violent. In fact one Russian scientist has already forecast that we will soon be heading back to a cooling trend which could last for up to 300 years. The more I hear of our mayor, the more I like him.

City clarifies campsite info Dear editor, I’d like to address statements made in a letter to the editor that appeared in your paper on Aug. 20. R. Chandler alleged that Maple Pool Campsite representatives had been unable to obtain important information and data from the City of Courtenay, to allow them to complete necessary engineering work. In fact, on July 17, 2013, the City of Courtenay couriered the most recent technical memos and floodplain elevations to the project engineer working on behalf of the Maple Pool campground. This latest inforDAVID ALLEN mation only recently became available as part of the City’s floodplain mapping project. We are not aware of any other information the Maple Pool representatives require from the City that they have not yet received from us. It is the responsibility of Maple Pool representatives to determine what effect their own proposed work will have on the Tsolum River system, both on their property and on the adjacent properties, before any application for rezoning or an official community plan amendment could be considered. Also, to clarify, there is no official or unofficial policy that would prevent Maple Pool representatives from meeting with City staff. David Allen Editor’s note: David Allen is the chief administrative officer for the City of Courtenay.

What to do when guests just show up Question: I know it’s a little late in the summer to be asking this, but I want to be prepared for next year. My problem is that certain members of my husband’s family just drop in on us with almost no notice and stay for several days during the summer. They seem to think that we have no plans. My husband doesn’t want to upset them even though he doesn’t like it either, and we are trying to get them to stop this without being rude. So far we have mentioned that they should call in advance, but they don’t. What else can we do short of hiding CONSULT A and not answering COUNSELLOR the door? Answer: Well, I suppose hiding and not answering the ANCY door is one soluOCK tion, but a hard one to explain if someone discovers you sitting under your kitchen table! In your letter you say that you have mentioned that you would like your husband’s relatives to call in advance, but that they continue to arrive unexpectedly. The first thing I would suggest is putting your request in writing. It is easy to disregard or forget something that was mentioned in a conversation, but things that arrive by e-mail or in a letter tend to get more attention. Your written message can be polite and can explain that you would like to be able to plan for their visit and make it more enjoyable for both As you deal with this issue, it is of you. If your relaimportant to keep tives continue to in mind that you disregard your and your husband request and turn at your home are not responsible up with little or no for the relatives’ notice, then you and your husband feelings. will need to have Nancy Bock a different strategy. It would be a good idea to talk with your husband ahead of time and agree on how you will handle this situation. Whatever you agree on saying to your visitors, it will need to reiterate your expectation that they talk with you ahead of time. Some people would choose at this point to go ahead with whatever plans they already had and fit the relatives in as they are able. Others would suggest a different date that would work for a visit. Whatever you choose to do, it needs to be very clear that you are not willing to drop everything for houseguests who do not honour your request for advanced notice of their visit. As you deal with this issue, it is important to keep in mind that you and your husband are not responsible for the relatives’ feelings. You will be doing your best to present your expectations clearly and politely. If this upsets them then they may have a problem, but it is not your problem. Relationships thrive when boundaries and expectations are clear. I hope you are able to set the stage for an enjoyable visit with your husband’s family next summer.

COURTENAY, B.C.

Hagen recording, touring and Indiegogoing Mattina Musica series still in Courtenay, but branching out to Lower Mainland Paula Wild Record Arts

Fall is typically a season of new beginnings and no less so for classical pianist Sarah Hagen. Over the next few months she’ll perform in Chicago, Newfoundland, Courtenay and various locations in between. She’ll also release her second CD featuring the work of Robert and Clara Schumann. To defray production costs, Hagen launched an Indiegogo campaign, which includes a very funny video put together by the pianist. Opportunities to support the project range from a $15 contribution that provides the donor with a digital download of the CD to a $1,500 donation that includes a concert for the donor and guests, as well as an original piano composition written by Hagen for them and performed in their honour. “Most people don’t realize how expensive it is to produce a CD,” explains Hagen. “I’m looking at $18,000 to cover the cost of hall rental, production team and piano tuning. Throughout the recording the piano had to be tuned six times at a cost of $150 each time.” The CD fundraising project runs until Sept. 30. For more information, visit www.indiegogo. com/projects/new-album-robertclara-schumann. The trajectory of the Comox Valley born and raised Hagen’s career has shot skyward since her move to Vancouver two years ago. She’s played at New York’s Carnegie Hall twice, once as the first prize winner of the 2013 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition. Other highlights include touring Manitoba and Saskatchewan with cellist Rebecca Wenham and recording the repertoire of her concert tour with Martin Chalifour for the CBC online music site.

COMOX VALLEY PIANIST Sarah Hagen is getting noticed in classical pianist circles, helped by this performance at Carnegie Hall. This year Hagen’s popular Mattina Musica series will be performed in eight locations on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland. “It has really caught on,” says Hagen. “I think one reason is that the audience and I really get to know each other during the five concerts. It becomes a mini-community of people linked together by a love of classical music.” Hagen’s jam-packed fall schedule includes one week of concerts nearly every day. “It can be physically tiring to perform so many concerts in a row,” she admits, “but it’s a treat for me. I play the piano every day no matter where I am. And performing the same composition so

Most people don’t ❝ realize how expensive it

is to produce a CD. I’m looking at $18,000 to cover the cost of hall rental, production team and piano tuning.

❞Sarah Hagen

many times allows me to explore the challenges and uncover new elements of the music. “I think it’s just a coincidence that I’ve been so busy since moving to Vancouver,” she adds. “It could have happened if I was in the Comox Valley — it just makes

it easier and less time-consuming to tour the Mattina Musica series on the Lower Mainland.” But Hagen visits the Valley often. She was part of the Comox Valley Youth Music Centre faculty this summer and is holding her Mattina Musica series at the Sid Williams Theatre this fall and winter. Mattina Musica means “morning music,” and takes place on five Mondays. The first concert is on Sept. 23 with Hagen and cellist Ariel Barnes, on Nov. 4 Hagen performs with violinist Joan Blackman and Dec. 2 she’ll perform a solo CD release concert. In Feb. 2014, tenor Benjamin Butterfield will join Hagen

onstage followed by horn player Otto Carrillo in March. For more information, visit www.sidwilliamstheatre.com. In addition to a new CD, Indiegogo campaign and busy fall concert series, Hagen recently revamped her website. Its clean sophisticated look is balanced by Hagen’s wit and charm. There are lots of photos, videos to watch and music samples to listen to. There are even suggestions as to what wine to sip with specific piano compositions. Check it out at www.sarahhagen.com.

Pyper singing for hospice Sue Pyper fans will have the opportunity to catch a live performance at the Mex Pub on Tuesday as featured guest of this month’s 1st Tuesday Fundraiser. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and admission is by donation. The charity Sue has chosen to support with the donation proceeds is the Comox Valley Hospice Society, an organization she has supported through other musical projects as well. Before moving to the Comox Valley in 2000 from the U.K., Sue was involved with Voices for Hospice concerts, an international music event that takes place in locations around the world to raise money and awareness for end of life care. Drawing on the success of that experience, she worked with Helen

Austin and Judy Wing to initiate a similar event in the Comox Valley, which evolved

into the popular trio Voices Three concerts and raised well over $15,000. Sue has released two CDs, and received very positive reviews from major cultural magazine publications such as Sing Out! and Rambles. Her debut recording Before You Learn to Fly, earned nominations in five categories in the Mpower Independent Music Awards and won Best Song in 2003. Her latest release, Tail Lights in the Rain takes on more serious social topics with the same melodic and lyrical eloquence she is noted for. She has performed at many local community events and festivals including the Vancouver Island MusicFest, and Filberg Festival as well as events in the

U.K. and France. Sue is always exploring new avenues of creativity adding new songs and instrumentation to her repertoire — the bass, the harmonica, and most recently the claw-hammer banjo. Her artistic talents spread onto the canvas as well, as a painter of pet portraitures and watercolour art cards, five of which will be offered as a door prize along with gift certificates from Rattan Plus Home and Patio. Judy and Bruce Wing, who host the event, will start off the evening at 7:30 accompanied by Blaine Dunaway, with Sue Pyper’s performance to follow.

Festival showcases artisans, artists, musicians

A 15-minute drive from Courtenay to gardens

The 11th annual Artisans Festival at Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens is taking place this coming Labor Day weekend from Saturday through Monday. The event, which has become one of the Valley’s premier cultural events, was developed as an opportunity to showcase the talents of artisans, artists and musicians. The festival this year has attracted over 90 exhibitors. “Over the years,“ says Bryan Zimmerman, owner of the gardens, “we have had an incredible number of artisans take part in the festival. Some of the exhibitors have been with us since the first festival but we find that each year there are always a good number of new exhibitors. “Because of this the festival is constantly changing but the quality and craftsmanship always remains high quality.” This year is no different. Visitors to the gardens will discover an eclectic mix of items that are all unique and have been created individually by the exhibitors who come from far and near to display their work. From rustic birdhouses to chainsaw creations, functional pottery to fused glass, fine art paintings to wind chimes, photography to jewelry, the work covers such a broad spectrum that visitors are sure to find some-

rie, Lyall’s Steel Guitar and Alan Jossul. No festival is complete without food, and visitors will find various concessions located throughout the gardens. The gardens are a 15-minute drive north of Courtenay off Highway 19A on Coleman Road on the way to Campbell River. There are signs marking the way to Whittaker Road, where the gardens are located. Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday and Presented by:

Constantly changing with the seasons, the gardens offer a respite from the daily grind. Many people have remarked that even

though there is a festival going on, they can always find a quiet spot where they can take a moment to reflect or to just simply smell the flowers. Along with the wonderful displays of the artisans and Mother Nature, the festival is also about entertainment and providing a

Local song circle fades away Eight years ago singer/songwriter, Helen Austin, had an idea. After venturing to Nanaimo regularly to their songwriter’s circle she felt that there was a need for something similar in the Comox Valley and the CV Songwriter’s Circle was started. It began in various cafes and eventually ended up at the Muir Gallery in Courtenay, where it was the perfect setting with its

A circle of writers LORI J WARD will be joined by em.ash and Allspice on Sept. 6 in a night of irresistible dance beats at the Waverley Hotel.

West Coast beats galore An awesome collection of some of the best dance beats driving the West Coast club scene will be heard Sept. 6 at the Waverley. The headliner is Lori J Ward. With support on her latest releases from DJs and producers like Lützenkirchen, Alex Flatner, F.Sonic, Adam Jay, Harvey Mckay (Soma), Head Tunes John Selway, Mastik Soul, Paco Osuna, Patric Lindsey, Sergio Mega, Stanny Franssen, Deko-ze, Markus Wesen (Ohral, BluFin,), it is easy to see why a career such as Lori’s has had so much success worldwide over the past two decades. Driving the dance floor on this very talent-packed evening is em.ash, who speaks through the vibrations of beats and bass lines. Combining a love of electronic music and an intentional desire to heal the mind, body and soul he creates a deep, rhythmic and smooth mix to elevate the dance floor. em.ash released his debut album ‘heartBEAT’ in October 2012. Although new to the game, DJ Allspice grew up on Motown, funk and disco that her father used to spin on his turntables, a holdover from his own days as a DJ. In high school, she went through a number of musical phases, from punk rock to hiphop. From this foundation, Allspice developed

COMOX VALLEY RECORD • Thursday, August 29, 2013

a fascination with putting together mixes in a wide variety of styles. Upon relocating to the West Coast, Allspice met a young DJ/ producer, DP Magee, who taught her the technical side of things, and gave her the skills to further her hobby of making mixes. Together with DJ Daweed and DJ Raven, the four started the Bounce Collective; a rapidly expanding group that hosts allages, monthly dance parties on Denman Island, and has been building up quite a following. Her sets feature a wide variety of genres — including Moombah, Electro, Kuduro, and

mid-tempo funk, with a heavy emphasis on Dancehall that coincides with her Jamaican roots. DJ Allspice also has a distinctive style that mixes soca music from Trinidad, with hard-hitting house beats, to keep the party going and provide a little something for everyone. Brought to you by the Bounce Collective currently residing on Denman, this evening promises to get down ‘island’ style. For details, visit www.flavoritemusic. com/lori-j-ward and https://soundcloud.com/ dj-allspice. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. — Cumberland Village Works

The Comox Valley Drop-in Writer’s Critiquing Circle is beginning a new season. It’s inviting any interested writers who might enjoy reading and critiquing in a friendly, helpful environment to join in Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Muir Gallery (440 Anderton Ave. in Courtenay).

Puzzling… Fun by the Numbers: Here’s how it works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Canada advances to round of 16 at FIVB tourney Record Staff Canada, with Courtenay’s Brad Gunter in the lineup, was swept by the U.S. 25-15, 25-15, 25-22 in its final round-robin match Monday in Izmir, Turkey at the 20-country FIVB U21 World Championships in men’s volleyball.

Canada ended the round r o b i n with two wins and two losses and r a n k s third in Group C BRAD GUNTER

to advance to the round of 16 playoffs. Serbia won the group with a perfect 4-0 mark while the U.S. and Tunisia, also with 2-2 marks, ranked second and fourth. It actually went down to a third tie-breaker between Canada and Tunisia for third spot. Both countries

were also tied in points and sets ratios. The third tie break was the match between the two teams which Canada won last Thursday. Rwanda went 0-4 for fifth spot. Against the U.S. Stephen Maar of Aurora, Ont., led Canada with 13 points while Gunter added nine.

Canada opened the tournament with wins over Tunisia and Rwanda before falling to Serbia on Sunday. “We are obviously not happy with the result (against the U.S.),” said Canadian team captain Milan Nikic of Calgary. “In the third set we started competing at our highest

level.” Canada faced France on Wednesday in the round of 16, with result unavailable at press time. The French were second in Group D with three wins and a loss. Follow Gunter and team Canada at www.fivb.org and www.volleyball.ca.

Sehr gut! Milburn to play in Basketball Bundesliga Don’t be surprised if Keenan Milburn asks how to say ‘pick and roll’ in German in the coming weeks. He’s just preparing, as usual. The former point guard for the SAIT Trojans men’s basketball team has signed a one-year contract with BBV Hagen, a B-Division club team in the Germanbased Basketball Bundesliga (Federal Basketball League). “I’m very excited. Can’t beat going over there, and basically getting paid to play the sport I love,” said Milburn, a graduate of the SAIT Polytechnic Business Administration program. “It’s just something new. I’ve never been over to Europe. It’s a great opportunity.” Hagen is listed as the country’s 39th largest city, and is located approximately 60 kilometres east of Dusseldorf - a long way from home for the Royston, B.C. native. Milburn starred at SAIT for three seasons (2007-10) after being plucked out of Mark R. Isfeld High School by Trojans head coach Mike Stevens. “Excited for him, happy for him,” said Stevens about the first player he ever recruited for SAIT. “(Keenan) is a good example of when you take some talent, work hard, and go after your dreams.”

GERMANY IS THE next stop for Keenan Milburn as the Royston native continues to pursue his passion for basketball.

The SAIT Trojans men’s basketball Rookie of the Year in 2008 and team MVP in 2009 admitted that Stevens was the only coach to recruit him out of high school, and that if he hadn’t, the chance to play professionally overseas might not have happened. “He’s one of the best coaches I ever had,” Milburn said. “Anything I wanted, he was there for me. He was always honest with me about improving my game.”

Improving his game was important to Milburn, and that became evident to Stevens from Day 1. “He really is a coach’s dream,” said the Trojans bench boss. “He came in, he was quiet his first year. He worked hard, he did whatever was asked, and then he started to get ambitious in wanting to know what it was going to take for him to be considered a great player. In 2010, Milburn ended his successful stint in SAIT silks with a runner-up sil-

ver finish at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) national championship. The following year, he started a two-year run with the University of Calgary Dinos, and in 2012-13, Milburn split time playing with the city’s American Basketball Association team, the Calgary Crush, as well as helping out Stevens as an assistant coach on the Trojans’ bench. Now he is ready for even more.

Milburn equated his impending move to Germany like the one he faced moving from the small town in B.C. to Calgary - daunting. But, early on in his first year with the Trojans, he earned a starting role, which assured him that he made the right choice to move to Alberta, and more importantly, that his abilities played on a bigger stage. “I think it really showed when I made the jump to CIS when I went from SAIT

to the (University of Calgary),” he said, looking back fondly at his time with the Trojans. “Mike really kind of gave me the go ahead and the confidence I needed to play at the next level. He really let me do whatever I needed to do on the floor, within the confines of the offence. It was such a good experience.” BBV Hagen has turned into somewhat of a landing spot for former Dinos players. U of C alum Chris Harris and Chris Wright, a Crush teammate of Milburn, also spent time with the club, and together, their recommendations helped land the six-foot-one guard a one-year deal. The 23-year-old leaves for Germany on Sept. 4, and has been spending his time leading up to his departure where else, but on the court practising. When talk of expectations come up he takes a second to collect his thoughts, like a point guard slowing down the play to see what his best options are to score. “If I can move up, get a new contract and make some more money that would be awesome,” Milburn said. “And if I only get a year out of it, and get to travel the other side of the world, then I’m happy with that, too. Really, right now I’ll be playing it by ear.” – SAIT Trojans

Jonsson rink rocks at Seniors Games in Kamloops A put-together team of gals who are always keen to curl headed to the BC Senior Games in Kamloops from Aug. 20-24. Skip Kim Jonsson, third Mary Holden, second Sharon Walker and lead Mickey Colburn had their game face on and challenged the other senior curling teams in a round robin competition at the McArthur Sports facility. The ice conditions in the heat of the August summer were keen with a nice curl. The Jonsson rink went undefeated in the round robin to come up against the Langley team who they had beat earlier in the competition. Gold was on the line and it was a pretty even battle. The

GOLD MEDAL WINNERS (left to right) are lead Mickey Colburn, second Sharon Walker, third Mary Holden and skip Kim Jonsson. first end was blanked and each end to the sixth was one point to the team with hammer. A slight hiccup faced the Jonsson team in the seventh where a

few errant shots gave Langley an opportunity to pull ahead by two, but they fell short. The game was tied in the eighth with a measure in favour of the Jons-

son team and an extra end ensued where a steal was needed for the win. Kim set up a great strategic plan that brought the team to

shot rock with a tap back. However, the Langley team had a couple of choices to draw to the four foot or make a tap back. They decided on the

former then changed their minds to a tap back and missed the shot. The steal gave the Jonsson team their well-fought-for gold medal.

An emotional medals ceremony, with all the teams being piped into the ice area, was a memorable conclusion to an incredible week. The Comox Valley Curling Club is having their registration on Saturday, Sept. 14 for regular league play; Sept. 11 for the 50+; Sept. 29 for the Juniors. More information is available on the website www.comoxvalleycurling.com. We are always looking for new curlers to join us and welcome you to check out this great sport at our registration. As you can see, there is no age limit to a fun-filled six months from October to March. – Comox Valley Curling Club

Fun day

Aug. 20 was another beautiful day for 17 Glacier Greens Tuesday Ladies to play a round of golf. Only the scores on the par 3s and 5s minus half your handicap counted for the total. Sounds simple enough but amazing how many of us had a problem with getting good scores on the right holes. Some golfers managed to get it right, and on the gross side they were Judy Brown 43, Glenda Kinney 44c/b and Kelly Gibb 44. On the net side Wendy Dowe 29.5, Gene Renaud 34 c/b and Jean Tonks 34.

Soccer talent boosts Zone 2 Record Staff The Vancouver Island Zone 2 55+ soccer team featured a number of participants from the Comox Valley at the annual B.C. Seniors Games last week in Kamloops. The squad included player/ coach Ryan Lapalm, Mark Simonson, Alan Jackson, John Ross and Doug Peters. The 55s

were involved in a number of intense games but were not able to advance to the medal rounds. The 60-plus team featured two locals in their ranks, coach Ted Katelanis and councilman Doug Hillian, who knows how to run in an election but who also showed blazing speed on the soccer pitch. The team played well in winning the bronze medal in an exciting final match.

The eldest group, and therefore the most important group, the over-65s, fared best of all in their competition by capturing a silver medal in their quest for bragging rights. Comox Valley players involved in this group were playing coach Frank Wouterlood, Chris de Wit, Bob Unwin, Dave Farah and manager John Marinus.

Mariners’ motto: refuse to lose Darryl Robbins CGA Mariners recorded another two wins to remain unbeaten in Comox Valley Men’s Sloptich Tier 1 play. After being shut out for four innings the West Coast Grinders scored 13 runs to tie the game but the Mariners responded

with four of their own for a 17-13 win. Steve Jordan smashed a three-run homer into the trees at Valley View 3 but in a losing effort as the Mariners were 18-14 victors over Madman McKay Jays. The Jays and Watson & Ash Grabbers were tied going into their

last at bats. The Grabbers put up five runs to go ahead but Jeremy Hoover hit a threerun dinger to bring the Jays to within two runs. The Jays then tied up the game and with two away Jared Schultz banged out a double and Andrew Marinus singled to

Amazing rally by Starlets The Starlets put on a great performance in Comox Valley Ladies Slopitch League action last week. On Wednesday, Aug. 21 the Peelers were ahead of the Starlets by 10 runs when the Starlets went up to bat for the last time in the bottom of the seventh. Erin Walsh hit a stand-up triple

Meanwhile, the Steamers recorded a pair of wins to retake top spot in Tier 2. The Steamers edged out the Griffin Ball Busters 15-14 and crushed the Coco Loco’s 17-4. The Outlaws beat the Holdups 13-7 but were beaten by the Ball Busters 11-6. The Misfits stomped the Coco Loco’s 24-9 but were trounced by the Holdups 17-6.

rom the Pacific Salmon Foundation Keystone Species 2013 EditionAnnual Magazine I found the following statement on Page 16 under a chart — State of Salmon Snapshot: “There are seven species of Pacific Salmon that populate BC waters. This handy guide gives you an insight into how they are doing (from the smallest to the largest by weight).” Note - this list includes cutthroat trout and steelhead as salmon. “Pink Salmon (or humpies due to large humps on males during spawning.) The smallest and most abundant of the Pacific Salmon. Pink salmon are at a record high abundance in the North Pacific, including recent returns to the Fraser River. Pinks only return to the Fraser in odd-numbered years, and in 2013 are expected to return in their usual high numbers at 10-15 million.” As of this writing there are reports of good numbers of pink salmon showing in local waters. According to a bulletin called Area 14 Courtenay, Comox and Qualicum 2013/2014 Coho and Chinook openings and Other Closures Chart, the following inside waters are open to retention of pink salmon: Areas 14-11, that can be accessed from a boat and Area 14-14, which is open to shore fishing only until Sept. 1. I urge you to get a copy of the above illustrated chart because finding areas where you can legally fish is confusing to say the least. We currently have no non-tidal waters where you can fish for and retain a pink salmon. The closest non-tidal recreational fishery for pinks is in the Campbell River (below the confluence of the Quinsam) — and Quinsam Rivers in Area 13. They are both open until Sept. 15 for the retention of four pinks and they are full of pinks and crowded with anglers. It is exciting fishery if you can handle large numbers of fellow anglers sharing the river with you. It is also an economic boom for sporting goods stores who serve the needs of anglers. In the meantime we have a long weekend in front of us and it is always nice if you

OUTDOORS

RALPH SHAW

A HAPPY VANCOUVER resident displays a Nile Creek pink. PHOTO BY RALPH SHAW can enjoy good beach fishing for pinks close to home as we have enjoyed during past seasons. With this goal in mind I took a trip along the beaches as far south as Nile Creek. One of the best local spots this year is the foreshore in 14/14 below the hospital in Comox. However before you rush down there, the fish are staying well out from the shore and seals can be a problem. This fishery may be best suited for spinning outfits and chest waders. Depend-

ing on tide and wind it can be a good fishery on pinks moving into the Puntledge Estuary. During my stop at Royston Bay and The Wrecks I saw several anglers fishing with both spinning and flyfishing outfits. It was a medium high tide and the wind was coming up. I watched one angler play and make a long-distance release on a spinning outfit. There were good numbers of fish well out in the bay and the seals were enjoying a feast of pinks. During low

tide, with relatively calm waters, Royston Bay will be a good bet for pinks this weekend. My next stop on my exploration trip was Nile Creek, which is one of the most successful pink salmon enhancement programs anywhere on the coast. There are fish off the creek and during appropriate tides and reasonable wind conditions the fishing is good for both spinning and fly fishing. Off the mouth of the Oyster River and adjacent beaches the reports I have are that most of the fish are moving directly into the river, with the result beach fishing has been disappointing for most anglers. Under these conditions just possibly small boats or kayaks may put anglers in contact with moving schools of fish. Beach fishing is a truly addictive and philosophical variety of fishing practised by a dedicated group of beach anglers. They fish for all species of salmon and do well. A day of beach fishing can be enchanting whether or not you take any fish home. ••• Halibut Fishing:

Our catch of halibut up to July 31 was approximately 530,000 pounds. This leaves a balance of 550,000 in our allocation. As a result, recreational fishing for halibut under current regulations will continue until further notice – good news. Ralph Shaw is a master fly fisherman who was awarded the Order of Canada in 1984 for his conservation efforts. In 20 years of writing a column in the Comox Valley Record it has won several awards.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Libby was born in Kokomo, Indiana to Mark and Elizabeth (Betty) Garrison.  As Mark was employed by the U.S. Department of State, her youth was spent living in, and travelling to, many foreign countries.  She lived in Washington D.C., Hong Kong and Bulgaria and spent time with her family in Czechoslovakia and Moscow, Russia.  Her family holidays were often spent visiting neighbouring countries while her father was on overseas postings.  While attending University in Colorado, she met her future husband Bret and they were married in 1972.  They both worked and attended university in the ensuing years until both had university degrees.  Libby then worked to support Bret as he studied podiatry in San Francisco, where he graduated in 1979.  Upon Bret’s graduation, Libby became his office manager. They moved to British Columbia in 1984 and set up a practice in Victoria.  As Libby was an avid skier, they spent more and more time in the Comox Valley and at Mount Washington during the winters.  Bret and Libby subsequently decided to move to the Comox Valley in 1995 and open up a podiatry practice there.  Libby continued to work with Bret until the cancer prevented her from doing so. Libby was a person of varied interests.  She enjoyed hiking, kayaking, woodworking, skiing, gardening, reading , windsurfing, embroidery and spending relaxing time at home with Bret. In recent years she developed a passion for photography.  Libby and Bret travelled to many areas of the Western U.S. and Canada to photograph nature’s wonders.  She was a skilled photographer of landscapes and flowers, and, of course, her grandchildren.  She had recently begun to delve into working with stained glass, which she hoped to explore in retirement.  But those plans were cut short due to her illness. Words cannot adequately express Libby’s persona or her love of life.  Those who knew her well could only describe her as a compassionate, caring, humble and loving person.  Libby was always considerate of others while her own needs were always secondary.  Her life was filled with joy, enthusiasm, intuitiveness, creativity and curiosity.  She met all challenges in her life knowing that she would do whatever necessary to overcome them.  Her smile and laughter would always lift the spirits of those around her.  Her energy, whether at home or at work, was limitless, her cheerfulness infectious.  Her bravery, while suffering from cancer, continued to the end of her life.  Her ever present smile continued until the cancer robbed her body of the ability to do so.  Those who knew her are better off from having had that experience.  We can’t tell you how much she will be missed by those that were fortunate enough to have known her.  She has left a void that can never be replaced. Perhaps Libby’s most important legacy was that of her dedication to her family.  The nurturing, guidance and love she provided to her children (Matthew and Brianne) was her greatest passion and had the greatest rewards.  Libby was involved, in a very positive way, in every activity the children experienced during their formative years.  She was always there to offer an encouraging word, to offer extra support when needed and to congratulate them on their efforts, regardless of the circumstances or the outcomes of the events in which they were involved.  They were the beneficiaries of that love, were better for it and have now grown up with those same attributes.  And that has now been extended to a generation of grandchildren.  Her influence will continue to grow with the future generations reaping the rewards.  There can be no more important legacy than that provided by Libby. Libby is survived by her husband Bret, and their two children, Matthew and Brianne (Neil), grandchildren Seth, Scotty (Matt) and Sawyer (Brianne), her father Mark J. Garrison (Rhode Island), brothers Mark E. Garrison (Pennsylvania) and Eric Garrison (Virginia) and sister Sarah (New York), brother-in-law Elton (Nevada), sisters-in-law Sharon (California), Marti (Washington), Brenda (Washington) and numerous nephews and nieces. Libby was predeceased by her mother Betty. We would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Joan Scruton and all of the nurses of the Home and Community Nursing program.  A special thanks to Sandy Reban for her support of the family in the final days.  Thanks also to our neighbours Rob and Becky who graciously supplied guest accommodation to Libby’s visitors during her illness.  We would also wish to thank all of the friends and neighbors who supported Libby during this most difficult time.  And thanks to all of Bret and Libby’s patients who continually expressed their concerns over Libby’s health over the last few months. There will be a family gathering to celebrate Libby’s life in the near future.
