Budget input requested here A group soliciting opinions about the 2014 provincial budget will collect Comox Valley feedback electronically on Oct. 3. The all-party Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services has announced plans for conducting provincewide consultations on Budget 2014. The consultations will include public hearings in communities throughout the province, along with a call for written submissions and an online survey. This year’s consultations will include public hearings in 17 B.C. communities, and video-conference sessions covering an additional four locations. Comox Valley input will be collected Oct. 3 via a video conference.

The consultation period opened with the release of the Budget 2014 Consultation Paper by the Ministry of Finance on Sept. 10. “The committee would like to hear British Columbians’ priorities and financial concerns for next year’s provincial budget,” said committee chair Dan Ashton. To register for the public hearings, contact the Parliamentary Committees Office by phone at 1-877-4288337 or by e-mailing FinanceCommittee@ leg.bc.ca. For more information on the work of the committee, including a list of committee members, visit the committee’s website at www. leg.bc.ca/cmt/finance. The deadline for submissions is Oct. 16. — Ministry of Finance

tial schools, told her story in four threeclass group sessions, telling her story to 12 classes in total. “Those sessions, the children came back, they actually heard from someone who went through it, so that really cemented the fact that these are real people,” says Leslie. “This actually happened and this is how they feel, and we heard it. And then they got to see what they, as a community of learners, could do about it.” Students and staff then created blankets, one for each of five residential school survivors connected to the school community and

one for each class. The project culminated at an assembly held on National Aboriginal Day, June 21, where the five survivors were wrapped in blankets by students. Flanders spoke with emotion after she was wrapped in her blanket. “You kids, all of you touched my heart — all of you — the questions you asked me,” she says on the video. “You all respected who I am. Thank you so much for this wonderful blanket that you made. I am so honoured. Thank you.” Leslie adds the ceremony was amazing, and she’s satisfied with what the project did to

bring the entire school community closer together. “This is what we did as a whole school, to honour, to support, to show our love and caring and understanding and just to basically say, ‘We acknowledge this happened to you, you are part of our school community, we care about you,’” says Leslie. She says she believes healing will come through understanding and acknowledging the shared history of residential schools between aboriginal and non-aboriginal people. “We can walk together and help each other heal,” she says. “And it’s through that walking forward that

According to BC Living’s readers, Comox Valley businesses offer outstanding food and entertainment compared to the rest of Vancouver Island. Comox Valley establishments topped the list for categories like best café, best desserts, best local festival and best bar/pub in the magazine’s 2013

Like last year, the Atlas Café took top honours for a Vancouver Island café this year, but it was also voted best breakfast/brunch establishment and was runner-up for best restaurant this year. “Team Atlas were thrilled to hear the news that we have been acknowledged by our customers by winning the BC Living People’s Choice Awards,” Atlas coowner Sandra Viney says. “To know that our guests have taken the time to vote after their Atlas experience is so heart-warming and so appreciated.” Comox’s Blackfin Pub owner Edd Moyes is

GE food expert trying to plant bug in our ears

GE Watch Comox Valley has been busy speaking to Comox Valley politicians over the past week, presenting its case to ban genetically engineered crops from B.C. GE Watch Comox Valley’s Dr. Thierry Vrain, who is the former head of biotechnology at Agriculture Canada’s Summerland Research Station, spoke at Monday’s Cumberland council meeting. GE Watch representatives also spoke at Courtenay council Monday, after speaking to Comox council last week. Vrain urged Cumberland councillors attending next week’s Union of BC Municipalities convention to vote in favour of asking the Province to declare B.C., through legislation, a GE-free area in terms of all plant and animal species. At Cumberland council, Vrain noted studies from around the world outline concerns about GE crops being linked to human health issues; he named Alzheimer’s, autism and cancer as a few examples. “I came here to convince you, or at least plant a bug in your ear that this technology is not controversial; the testing has been done,” he told Cumberland council. “The scientists, and people of 64 countries in the world, have voted to ban or label GMOs (genetically modified organisms) based on these tests.” Coun. Gwyn Sproule noted the resolution was endorsed almost unanimously by the Association of Vancouver Island and Coastal Communities (AVICC) earlier this year. “So it seems to me that the general feeling of local government is concern for GMOs,” she told Vrain, noting she won’t be at the UBCM convention, but suspects the vote could go similarly to the AVICC vote. Coun. Roger Kishi expressed concern over consumer knowledge around GMO foods. “In my mind, the stronger point is for the consumer, and that’s for knowing whether or not the product that you’re buying from the grocery store is a GMO

Ferries schedules shuffled

COMOX VALLEY NATIVE Roo Phelps (right) has landed a job with Casey Clarke.

Phelps was born to talk Erin Haluschak Record Staff

She may be Canada’s — or even the world’s — only fourthgeneration broadcaster, but Roo Phelps is putting her foot, or country boot, down across a new syndicated market. Phelps, who hails from Courtenay and is the daughter of former Courtenay Mayor Greg Phelps, recently was added to the syndicated Casey Clarke Show, Canada’s most-listened-to country radio program. “I used to say she was vaccinated with a gramophone needle,” said Greg. “She was born talking and won’t stop.” Clarke hosts two syndicated radio shows across Canada, and

Roo, who admits to always being a fan of his, said she was “thrilled to have been paired with him.” “(I am) incredibly excited and honoured to have been added to Casey’s syndicated show and feels (our) combined passion for country music, laughter and great radio will be the launching pad for the next incarnation of the Casey Clarke Show,” she noted in a press release. Roo has worked in radio since 1999 across Vancouver Island, Vancouver and now Kelowna. Greg, whose background is also in radio, said it is a proud moment for him. As Roo grew up, he added, the Phelps listened to every style and genre of music, from Pavarotti to Iron Maiden.

BC Ferries is advising customers of the redeployments of several ships in the Powell River area to accommodate vessel refits and major terminal construction at the Westview (Powell River) and Little River (Comox) terminals. The MV Island Sky, which usually sails between Earls Cove and Saltery Bay, will be replaced by the Queen of Chilliwack from Sept. 12 through mid-March 2014. The regular schedule will remain in effect on this Northern Sunshine Coast route. The MV Island Sky will undergo a scheduled drydocking and maintenance refit from Sept. 12 until Oct. 30. On Oct. 31, the MV Island Sky will replace the Queen of Burnaby on the Comox–Powell River route. The Queen of Burnaby will proceed to a scheduled drydocking and additional ship maintenance at the end of October until late December. After completion of this work and crew training, this ship will be temporarily redeployed to the Tsawwassen–Southern Gulf Islands route to replace the Queen of Nanaimo for its refit beginning in early January. The Queen of Burn-

aby will return to the Comox–Powell River route mid-March, after completion of the Westview and Little River terminal rebuilds. “In addition to conducting regular refits on our vessels, we are in the process of completely upgrading the marine structures at our Little River and Westview terminals to provide safe and reliable service for another 40 years,” said Mark Wilson, BC Ferries’ Vice President of Engineering. “While we are making every effort to minimize disruption to our service to accommodate this approximately $30 million

project, it is necessary to temporarily close both terminals and adjust sailing schedules to complete the work.”

A modified schedule, which will provide four round trips, will be in place on the Comox– Powell River route from Oct. 17 to 30.

Did You Know... Following a rehabilitation program is very important to your legal case. In law, the plaintiff (injured party) has an obligation to mitigate his or her losses. This means the plaintiff must take reasonable steps to minimize the losses he or she suffers by following the doctor’s advice regarding treatment and getting back to work as quickly as possible. By following a coordinated rehabilitation program, the client will be able to show the court he or she has made best efforts to improve injuries and function. Rehabilitation programs often involve the input of your family doctor, an occupational therapist or physiotherapist. Your personal injury lawyer must work with your doctor or physiotherapist (as well as other medical treators) to identify a reasonable rehabilitation program for your situation.

People were ready, even waiting “all his life,” as one man described, this week to sign a petition in the Comox Valley seeking the decriminalization of marijuana in the province. Local activist Ernie Yacub said reaction to the Sensible B.C. campaign being spearheaded by Vancouver-based Dana Larsen in the Valley has been “excellent.” “There’s been a lot of variety of people (wanting to sign); we’re really thrilled about it and that it’s crossed all boundaries,” he added. “There’s been activists, retired military personnel, old people, young men and young women. The response has definitely picked up in the last couple of weeks.” Sensible B.C. has 70 canvassers in the Valley, and Yacub said 100 is “doable.” “We’re getting there really quickly, we might even get to 500,” he noted. Over the next three months, Sensible B.C. has to collect 10 per cent of registered voters in each of the province’s 85 electoral districts, equalling about 400,000 signatures, and submit the petition by Dec. 9. Yacub said anyone interested in becoming a canvasser doesn’t have to go door to door. He is aiming for 10,000

Village nixes Trilogy request Renee Andor Record Staff

Cumberland council voted Monday against Trilogy Group CEO and president John Evans’ request for exemption from commercial development cost charges (DCCs). Evans made the request during a delegation to the Aug. 12 council meeting, noting there is competition to attract businesses, and an exemption could help attract them. He also pointed out the Village would gain more commercial tax base if retailers move into the 700 acres at the junction of the Inland Island Highway and the Comox Valley Parkway. Called CAYET, the proposed mixeduse development is described as a commercial hub for retail, restaurants, hotels and housing. Coun. Roger Kishi pointed out Monday the Village doesn’t have commercial DCCs in place yet, and is in the process of updating its DCC bylaw. Coun. Gwyn Sproule said she understands there’s “fierce competition” to attract retailers, noting box stores recently choosing to open in neighbouring communities. But, “The thing is the land speaks for itself; if it’s a good place for a commercial development then the people will come,” she continued. Council voted in

Drive will aid local food bank Donations can be left on your doorstep for Sept. 21

Our farmers appreciated Our local Comox Valley Farmers’ Market will host some fun activities Saturday while honouring the farmers who make the market so great. It’s farmer appreciation week, says manager Vickey Brown. “It’s perfect timing for us; we just celebrated customer appreciation day, so it follows that this week the appreciation will flow in the other direction. “We’ll have cards on site for folks to fill out for their favourite – or all of the market farmers, and we’re hoping to get kids involved by asking them to draw their favourite farmer or farm product – and we’ll enter them into a draw for a special farmers’ market prize.” Comox Valley Farmers’ Market board member Moss Dance is excited to announce another initiative to support local growers. “In an effort to support new farmers in the area, the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market is offering a bursary to a new farm for the 2014 farming season. “Access to farm land is a challenge for young and new farm-

ers,” says Dance, who is also a local farmer, “But startup costs in the spring can also be a barrier to new farmers. “In the late winter and early spring, seeds, inputs, tools, repairs and supplies need to be purchased. We hope the timing of this bursary will help a new farmer in the Comox Valley get started for the 2014 season.” The idea for the bursary came from two young farmers who’ve been at the market for 10 years now, selling their fabulous strawberries, garlic and seeds grown at Good Earth Farms. Simon and Heather know how hard it can be when you’re just getting started and wanted to help new farmers so they donated the first $250. The current board hopes to bring the fund up to $500 for the bursary including a $100 oneyear membership to the Comox Valley Farmers’ Market as well as $400 for farm-related expenses. Donations to the bursary fund can be made at the Market tent beside the stage. — Comox Valley Farmers’ Market

HEATHER (AND SIMON) of Good Earth Farms inspired a bursary to help new farmers in the Comox Valley.

B.C. food banks help almost 100,000 people each month. The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive, co-ordinated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, helps to provide donations to local food banks to meet these needs. This year’s event takes place Sept. 16 to 21. Local volunteers will deliver donation bags to residential addresses. Those who want to participate will place non-perishable items in the bag, and leave it out on their doorstep by 9:30 a.m. on Sept. 21. Volunteers will return to pick up the bags and deliver them to the food bank. Last year, in Courtenay/Comox, over 2,000 homes were visited, and 4,400 pounds of food were collected. This year, volunteers are hoping to do even better, as they are planning to contact even more households. “We are pleased to be part of this community service,” said Collin Van Horne, president of the Church’s Nanai-

mo Stake. “Everyone benefits when we do something for those less fortunate. We hope for this annual effort to continue to grow and involve many, many more volunteers to canvas every household in B.C.” Established in 2009 as a local effort to serve those in need of food bank services in Burnaby, the BCTFD has expanded to include dozens of partner organizations and food banks serving some 50 communities throughout the province. Its fundamental purpose is to raise material and financial support for local food banks. The Comox Valley Food Bank will be the recipient of the food collected on the 21st.

LIEUT.-COL TOONE, PARADE commander, calls the general salute for the departure of Lieut.-Col. Jason Kenny at the 2012 Battle of Britain commemorative service. PHOTO BY CPL. SYLVIE KERVIN

Battle remembered The public is invited to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the Battle of Britain this Sunday at the 19 Wing Comox Memorial Aircraft Park at 11:15 a.m. Canadian Armed Forces members both past and present will be in attendance and on parade to mark the sacrifices made by Canadian and Allied servicemen and women

who fought in the pivotal Second World War battle. The parade will include a fly-by of a CP-140 Aurora. The Battle of Britain, which raged in the skies above Britain and the English Channel from July until October 1940, marked a turning point in the war. With the German Luftwaffe unable to destroy the Royal Air

Force (RAF), Hitler was forced to abandon his plans for an invasion of Britain. The parade, commanded by Lieut.-Col. Jason Kenny of 407 Long Range Patrol Squadron will include participation from contingents representing the Royal Canadian Air Force Association, the Royal Canadian Naval Association, Royal Canadian Legion, Korea Veterans Association, Royal Canadian Air Cadets as well as a 30-member guard from the Canadian Armed Forces. Col. Jim Benninger, 19 Wing commander, will be the reviewing officer for the parade. In the event of inclement weather, the commemorative ceremony will take place at Saint Michael and All Angels Protestant Chapel. — 19 Wing

Free film Friday timed to inspire Terry Fox runners Annual fundraising run goes this Sunday in the Comox Valley

A free community movie night at the Sid Williams Theatre this Friday at 7 p.m. is a great venue to embrace the legacy of Terry Fox, whose passion has inspired Canadians for 33 years. The inspiring 2005 movie takes us back to the start of his cross-Canada run and reminds us of his fierce determination to outrun cancer. Courtenay Recreation is presenting the film

in partnership with the Sid Williams Theatre Society and Active Comox Valley. “Terry Fox means so much to Canadians and to people around the world, and Courtenay Recreation is honoured to sponsor this film,” says Susan Murphy, Manager of Recreation Services. “Whether you remember watching his Marathon of Hope in 1980, or if you’re from a younger generation, this film will be a reminder of how Terry Fox inspired our entire country, and established a legacy that continues to grow.” The Sid Williams Theatre Society was quick to

United Way launching campaign

A PLANT SALE this weekend will help to preserve forested land near Cumberland.

Plants for sale Rev up your wheelbarrows and head to the Cumberland Community Forest Society annual Fall Plant Sale this Saturday. The sale runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the corner of Third Street and Derwent Avenue in downtown Cumberland. The sale offers plant lovers a robust selection of flowering perennials, small shrubs, fruit stock, ground covers and grasses including plants suitable for sunny, shady, dry and boggy settings. Experienced gardeners will be on hand to assist you and talk about the West Coast art of yearround gardening. There will also be used garden tools for sale and Simply Fish organic soil amendment available for only $2 a litre. Bring a container with lid and bring home some nutrient rich elixir for your garden beds. Do you have some extra garden tools kicking around? Most of us do! Drop them off at Third and Derwent and we’ll sell them as part of this fundraiser. All proceeds from the sale go to the Cumberland Community Forest Society. To date the society has purchased 55 hectares of threatened forests surrounding the Village. For details about the

plant sale or to offer donations of plants or garden tools, call Grace at 250-336-8921 or Ron at 250-336-2567. — Cumberland Community Forest Society

EIGHTEEN YOUNG SHOOTERS participated in the first Canadian National Skeet Shooting Camp at Comox Lake.

Skeet big hit for youngsters Young shooters, novice and experienced, gathered from the mainland and the Island to take part in the first Canadian National Skeet Shooting Camp at the shotgun venue of the Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association. For many years, NSSA Youth Camps have been held all over the United States to introduce young shooters to the game of skeet. Now, for the first time, the camp was offered in Canada. Five Certified Level 1 NSSA skeet instructors, led by zone instructor Bob LaRue, as well as over 20 very experienced and skilled volunteer assistants came to the camp at their own expense, from Calgary, Kelowna, Vancouver, Langley and Vancouver Island. Eighteen 12- to 16-year-old participants travelled from Kelowna, Vancouver, and all over the Island to learn fundamental shooting skills. The students worked hard improving their skills over the three-day Labour Day weekend, and even first-time shooters amazed the adults

with how quickly they picked up the sport. To the delight of the students, Jonathon Weselake, captain of the Canadian Shooting Team, gave an exhibition of Olympic skeet shooting. Jonathon trains at the Courtenay facility, and offered shooting tips and spoke about the route to the Olympics. Jim Leggett, chair of the shotgun venue said, “With an event of this scope, members of the club have put in hundreds of hours of planning, fundraising, and organizing. But what really pulled everything together and made it such an awesome success was the contribution of the more than 50 volunteers who instructed, coached, and mentored the kids, or who put out three fabulous meals every day for over 70 people at the camp. It was truly a community and family affair.” Dale Frame, president of Courtenay Fish and Game, also acknowledged the community sponsors that made the camp possible. — Courtenay and District Fish and Game Protective Association

Buying socks can help homeless When you or someone on your gift list enjoys a snugly pair of beautiful hand-knit wool socks from the Comox Valley Sock It To ‘Em Project, each of your simple sock purchases provides up to 10 pair of high quality store-bought socks for someone who is homeless in our community. This is how the newly launched, not-for-profit project works: Knitting hours are donated by volunteer labour. The proceeds from the sale of handknit socks go toward buying store-bought socks which are then distributed to the homeless and those at risk of homelessness by the Care-A-Van — Comox Valley’s volunteer mobile heath-care unit — the only service of its kind west of Calgary.

The Summer Youth Program in The Views at St. Joseph’s Hospital included 22 students between the ages of 13 and 18. The financial support of the St. Joseph’s Hospital Auxiliary and Canada Service Summer

Employment Program made it possible. The Youth Volunteer Program will commence once again in the fall. Interested returning or new volunteers are encouraged to contact Pat Allan, manager

of volunteer services, at pat. allan@sjghcomox.ca or Brenda Phillips, director of resident lifestyles and community programs, at Brenda.phillips@viha. ca. — The Views

BUYING COLOURFUL SOCKS for yourself will help to provide homeless people in the Comox Valley with store-bought socks distributed by the Comox Bay Care Society. Just look for the woman with the basket of colourful socks at Sock It To ‘Em sale days at Zocalo Café at the corner of Cliffe and Fifth in Courtenay between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Sept. 14, 18, 21 and 25.

THERE HAS BEEN much contro-

versy about water meters and rates. However, during stage 3 emergencies, meters would be the only fair way to manage and allocate a reduced water supply to all Comox Valley customers. Making exceptions for car washes, municipalities, strata properties and golf courses sends the wrong message on conserving water for firefighting purposes. If this is really an emergency, restrictions need to apply to all users. A better way to allocate water during stage 3, would be to allocate  one cubic metre per day to every customer — enough for multi-family use,  car washing, or keeping the  lawn and garden healthy. Customers would have to decide on priorities. Those using more that one cubic metre per day would receive a large surcharge on their water bill, every day on the stage 3 restriction. The surcharge would apply to all customers. Another good reason to have universal water metering and the same rate structures for all Comox Valley water customers.

HALF OF CANADIANS have nev-

er talked to family and friends about what they would want if they were ill and could not speak for themselves. But all of us will die. So, what’s the use of avoiding the topic? It’s time for us to take our heads out of the sand and talk about advance care planning. You are cordially invited to learn more about advance care planning at an introductory workshop on Monday, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. hosted by Berwick Comox Valley, 1700 Comox Avenue. Regardless of our age, we can all provide a wonderful gift to our loved ones by completing an advance care plan. What is advance care planning? Ad-

vance care planning is a process of reflection and communication, a time for you to reflect on your values and wishes, and to let others know your future health and personal care preferences in the event that you become incapable of consenting to or refusing treatment or other care. Having an advance care plan can give us comfort and assurance that our end-oflife wishes will be honoured. It means having conversations with family and friends and designating a representative — the person you want to speak for you if you cannot. It may also include writing down your wishes, and may involve talking with your doctor, financial and legal professionals. You may never need your advance care plan — but if you do, you’ll be glad that it’s there and that you have had these conversations, to make sure that your voice is heard when you cannot speak for yourself. To RSVP for the workshop, please call 250-339-1690. For more information and valuable resources about advance care planning, visit www.advancecareplaningcv.ca or call the Comox Valley Hospice Society at 250-339-5533.

CANADA OWES A tremendous debt to its many refugees. Dr. Vladimir Krajina was a committed believer in democracy and eminent botanist who found refuge in 1949 in UBC’s School of Forestry, when, as the secretarygeneral of the democratic government he fled the communist takeover of his country of origin. Professionally, as an eminent Canadian botanist, Krajina was the first to classify and map our ecosystems. As a professor of botany he researched the impacts and economics of forest practices and opposed the practice of clear-cutting and slash burning. His work was instrumental in redefining B.C.’s forest practices. However, his single greatest

Doing it right — 4Ps of marketing The whole concept of marketing is based on putting the right product in the right place at the right price using the right promotion. These are the elements … the four Ps of today’s marketing mix. Sounds simple but there is a lot of thought and hard work that needs to be put into each element. Get one of them wrong and it will be a constant uphill struggle. The key to getting things right is to ask the right questions. Here’s a few basic questions related to each of the elements that can help put things into perspective or get you back on track when things seem to be going awry.

Product What need does your product satisfy? How will your customers experience or use it? How is it different from other similar products put out by your competition? How will you brand it? Can you produce it efficiently so that you can make a profit? Place Where can your customers purchase your product? Will you need a storefront location? Will they be able to access it through a specialty store, general retail environment or wholesaler? Will you be selling through consumer or trade shows? What other distribution channels can you use?

Thanks for the thanks

Life is hectic in a newsroom. We’re pelted with a constant flood of information from a variety of sources. Add deadlines that always loom and it’s easy for editors and reporters to get caught up in the whirlpool that is a modern newsroom. While rushing to get our twice-a-week package of information to you (not to mention the website and social media duties between print deadlines), we don’t typically have time to reflect about the fact that what we do affects real people. That’s why we need to be reminded periodically. This often takes the form of a complaint about something we have reported incorrectly. Or perhaps information we recounted correctly, but which caused upset to people who are affected by it. Once in a while, we are thanked for something we’ve shared with our readers. Rarely are we thanked so completely and touchingly as when an envelope arrived recently from several members of the Living Hope Christian Fellowship. It contained a thank-you card from Tim, Linda and Danielle of the LHCF’s Cambodia Team 2013. We really hadn’t done that much – merely printed a press release, but the handmade card touched the heart of a crusty old editor. On the cover was a photograph of the article in the Aug. 15 Comox Valley Record headlined “Silent auction to help Cambodian youth.” Inside, the card read, “Because you ran our story in your newspaper last week, a generous donation was given by a Comox Valley business and many people learned about our project. A heartfelt thank you for your contribution...” Local support helps to sustain a youth centre in the Southeast Asian nation that provides education for youth. It was our pleasure to help, especially because we were reminded that what we do can really make a difference. Thanks also to local businesses that support worthy causes. editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com

But in the end, the City sold its soul to the NIMBY community and sacrificed a huge loss both financially and publicly for it. Now the rationale from the mayor is that we should not have to pay for building or maintaining shelters or being in the business of housing. Any person with enough common sense can see City council is far more interested in taking care of business then taking care of ALL the citizens of the Valley. Why not give the homeless/ housing committee the hundred grand that was rightfully meant to go for that purpose? Garth Greatheart Comox Valley

Isn’t that what works with your own children?” Expressing compassion and connecting offenders with our community brings them into the “circle of community”. It shows them how they can be successful and happy, and in accord with community standards.

That’s a result the 150 volunteers at the CJC are committed to achieve – bringing those who breach our expectations into connection with the wider community so as to experience the sense of inclusion and worth that builds a better life. A restorative justice circle shows an offender that even their victims can, and often are quite ready to understand and forgive the behaviour. And, they are willing to welcome them into a new way of being engaged with their neighbours. It’s a kind of “magic” that is only magical because most do not understand how it works – it is “magical” because it is counter to most people’s expectations that they can be accepted by their community as worthy of compassionate treatment, the chance to establish a renewed connection to their community, and the opportunity to make amends. It is “magical” because it focuses on the underlying causes, not the symptoms, of anti-social behaviour: disenfranchisement, marginalization, exclusion, and disconnectedness from community. Building connection, offering positive human relationship, sharing a view of a successful path back to being at home in the community – these are the bedrock of the Community Justice Centre’s magic. True justice can be “A Magical Mystery Tour”! We appreciate the support of our partner, the Comox Valley Record, for the space to publish this column.

THE SELECTION Matinée wins people over CHECK THIS WEEK’S SPECIALS Band, and the Sheepdogs. The Matinée are almost famous already, and are soon to be the biggest name on the marquee.” The Vancouver Sun’s Francois Marchand agrees, writing, “Weathered by years of work on the road, The Matinée play their bitumen-beaten material with veteran-like craftsmanship. This band is no blogospherehyped flash-in-the-pan — they’re a testament to the old-school tradition of paying your dues while retaining that youthful, vibrant quality that makes good, essential folk/ country-rock leap from the stage.” Drawing comparisons to Tom Petty, Ryan Adams, Wilco, and the Sadies, their debut full-length album We Swore We’d See the Sun Rise does not disappoint. The Matinée’s live show at the Sid on Sept. 21 is one you don’t want to miss. Generally known to be an uproar of stomping, clapping, and blazing chops, it will highlight the band’s great group vocals and attention to harmony, plus some fantastic guitar work. For more information about The Matinée, visit www.sidwilliamstheatre.com. Tickets are available in person at the Sid ticket centre, by phoning 250-338-2430, or online at sidwilliamstheatre.com. — Sid Williams Theatre

‘An uproar of stomping, clapping, and blazing chops’

As part of the Blue Circle Series, the Sid Williams Theatre Society is proud to present The Matinée on Sept. 21. The music business is a grind and it’s something the members of The Matinée, a roots rock group from Vancouver, know all too well. The alt-country infused quintet has been working the Canadian music scene for the better part of 10 years. The band’s played everywhere, from dingy pubs to prisons to high schools to air-force bases to one of their biggest gigs to date at last month’s Squamish Valley Music Festival. “I think that on the road is where we really grew as a band, ’cause that’s where we paid our dues and learned our craft,” lead singer Matt Layzell said in a recent interview with The Georgia Straight. “...we had to just get out there and play anywhere we could. We learned a lot about ourselves and what we’re capable of. And it all comes from playing to people every night and trying to win those people over.” The Matinée have certainly been winning people over. Music critics and industry

Gerber does blues, more

GENIE AWARD WINNER Ron Hynes comes to The Venue Formerly Known As Joe’s Garage on Sept. 18.

Performer six-time East Coast Music Award winner



This show is sponsored by the Society For Artistic Development and part of proceeds from the show will be going towards production of promotional material for one of our local singer songwriters, Adam Norman, a society member. “Being able to have someone like Ron Hynes come to Courtenay to perform for an

intimate show like the one at this venue is great unto itself, but being able to help an up-and-coming artist such as Adam at the same time, is golden!” says promoter Milo Yakibchuk. For more about Hynes, visit www.hynesite.org. — The Venue Formerly Known As Joe’s Garage

Alan Gerber’s career spans more than 40 years, and is rich in modern music history. At the age of 15 he won a songwriting contest and had two original songs recorded at the legendary Chess Studio. On the day he went in to record, the studio was being painted — by Chuck Berry. “That was a real life lesson in the fickle nature of the music business,” Gerber says wryly. Lured from university in 1965 by producer Paul Rothchild (The Doors, Paul Butterfield, Janis Joplin), Alan became singer, songwriter and keyboardist for the group Rhinoceros. With the release of two albums, Rhinoceros toured North America with such names as Janis Joplin, B.B. King, Jefferson Airplane, Traffic, Jimi Hendrix, Steppenwolf, John Lee Hooker, Jeff Beck and others. Alan left Rhinoceros, and released his first solo effort in 1971 and toured with Leon Russell. Gerber performed at Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue and played with Lou Reed in the United States. For several years, Alan lived in France and toured with his All Star American Blues Review before coming to settle in Quebec. In 1994, he produced and released Chicken Walk. He followed that up with Fools That Try in 1997 and The

chian-style fiddling, some rip-it-up slide guitar, gospel boogie woogie on the piano, and more. For more about him, visit http://alangerber. org. Gerber performs Sept. 17 at the Waverley Hotel. Tickets are available for the 8 p.m. show at Bop City, the Waverley, by phoning 250-336-8322 or online at https://store.cumberlandvillageworks. com. — Cumberland Village Works

HE EXPLODES FROM the start with all the musical colours that blues funk has in its paintbox — Alan Gerber is a ‘not to be missed’ musical dynamo. Boogie Man in 1999. When demand for a live CD began to surface, Alan took the studio on the road and produced Alan Gerber Live in 2002. In 2005 he released the critically acclaimed Blue Tube. Alan’s show is grounded in the blues, but it’s so much more. He throws in Appala-

In his recent works, Acton uses metal and found objects creating brilliant, humorous and at-times haunting representations of humanity in all its forms. On display will also be work by Vancouver painter/photographer Jennifer Mawby. Her moving image work Milagrosa is enigmatic and captivating, blurring boundaries

between artistic media. As a special treat for the opening reception of Human Animal, the garden space of Studio B will feature a projection of video and sound piece entitled Revolver.  This artwork, originally created for Vancouver’s 2012 Parade of Lost Souls, is a collaboration between Vancouver artists Alpha Lam and Ron Luther. Stastny, the curator of Studio B Gallery, says: “I aim to further energize Cumberland’s flourishing art scene by presenting shows that inspire, provoke and encourage a dialogue between the art and its audience.  My goal is to showcase art of diverse media, to push boundaries of what is considered ‘art’ as well as to create opportunities for synergy among

various artistic disciplines.” – Studio B

FOR CANCER RESEARCH

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 13 @ 7:00 PM From the time 21 year-old Terry Fox embarked from St. John’s,Newfoundland, in the early hours of April 12, 1980, he never lost sight of his goal - to run 26 miles a day, everyday, across Canada. Based on journals Terry kept during the Marathon of Hope and drawing from extensive interviews with family and friends, TERRY presents a dramatic and surprising look at a dynamic young man whose fierce determination has earned the respect, admiration and love of people everywhere. Shawn Ashmore gives an outstanding performance as Terry Fox, as he embraces the spirit and character of a Canadian hero.

Thirty-five army cadets along with six Canadian Forces members from across Canada graduated from the Canadian Forces (CF) Basic Parachutist Course, held at the Canadian Army Advanced Warfare Centre (CAAWC), in Trenton, Ont. “The candidates for the course were selected after a gruelling process where only a select few were chosen,” said Lieut. TerriLeigh Saunders, public affairs officer. Select few would be an understatement. According to the Canadian Cadet Organization website, there are 52, 890 cadets across Canada, of which 18,920 are army cadets. Thirty-five cadets succeeded, three from B.C. One of the Cadets to successfully complete this elite CF course was Warrant Officer Hugh Park of 1726 Canadian Scottish Regiment Royal Canadian Army Cadet Corps, from the Comox Valley. “Earning my ‘Jump Wings’ would have to be one the toughest and most rewarding achievements of my entire time in cadets,” stated Park. “When I joined cadets in January 2007, just a few days after I turned 12, I never dreamed it could lead

Initially I joined Air Cadets because my older brother and sister were both Air Cadets and really enjoyed it, but I later switched to the 1726 Army Cadets because they offered more opportunities for outdoor travel and adventure, and boy have I gotten my share of exciting experiences. “Two years ago I spent the summer kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and mountaineering with the army cadets in the Rocky Mountains. “Last year I went

to Great Britain on an army cadet exchange program for the summer to train with various British regiments and tour around. “I have also been on various expeditions that included everything from ocean kayaking to camping on glaciers,” Park said. “I have learned a lot, not just from those experiences but also from the training. “The army cadet organization leaves very little to chance.

Anyone with a child who has special needs knows that medicine, equipment and therapies come with hefty pricetags. But for the Comox Valley Doberstein family, help came from Variety – The Children’s Charity and families all over B.C. Their son Max received a wheelchair, and now he wants to help other families like his. For the fifth year in a row, Max is taking part in the Kids Coin Drive for Variety. “Max and our other Coin Kid champions around B.C. are inspiring a spirit of support and philanthropy,” says Bernice Scholten, Variety’s executive director. “The Coin Drive campaign is an example of the power of families helping families.” From now until Oct. 31, IGA stores, Marketplace IGA locations and Bank of Montreal branches across the province will display the iconic coin boxes featuring Heartly, Variety’s mascot, and ask customers to support the fundraiser by donating loose change. Proceeds go toward helping children who have special needs. Since its inception 10 years ago, this provincewide fundraiser has raised $1.8 million for children in B.C. who have special needs. Thanks to the generosity of its donors, Variety – The Children’s Charity was able to give the gift of mobility to Max.

“Variety paid for our van conversion,” says his mom Jay. “This is extremely expensive and would have been difficult for us to afford. “But it allows me to manoeuvre his heavy wheelchair easily, and gives us the freedom to go anywhere together as a family.” To support Max, go to variety.bc.ca/coindrive and navigate to his page.

Paddle boarders scoop national championships Record Staff

Two Comox Valley standup paddle boarders earned Canadian championships at Lake Kalamalka in Vernon on the Labour Day long weekend. Mia Wheatley-Maltais earned national female Junior champion honours Sunday, Sept. 1 after her 16 km crossing of Lake Kalamalka. At only 12 years old, she was the youngest ever to cross this lake on a paddle board. She thanks her coach, Stuart Robinson, for being “an awesome coach and teaching all the kids.” At the same event, her coach became the Elite champion of Canada. Robinson, co-owner of SurfSUP & Compass Adventure, made a clean sweep at the national championships, winning the Elite short distance race (3 km) and the coveted 10-mile Elite race. Competitors from around the country battled for the top honours but Robinson monopolized the medals and prizes, and in doing so

“This has been an amazing year for me,” says Robinson. “Starting with the

Beach in seven hours, then winning every race in the Vancouver Island SUP

Race Series, every race at the Provincial championships in Vancouver and now I have the top honours in Canada.” What’s next for Robinson? “Round the Rock race at Whidby Island in Northern Washington and then it is San Diego for Battle of the Paddle, now possibly the largest stand up paddle board race in the world.” What draws him to the sport? “It is an incredible workout, there is lots of potential and it is a sport that you can get into at any level. There are very few sports that are so versatile. “You can stand up paddle on flat water, in the surf, down rivers, in the ocean, you can go touring – the list is almost endless. It is also really fun and relatively inexpensive to get into.” Robinson also coaches local athletes and this is another reason for being involved. “I can give back to the sport at the same time as competing.”

Glacier Kings shooting for first win of new season Earle Couper Record Staff

The Comox Valley Glacier Kings are hoping Friday the 13th will bring them good luck. The Yetis will be looking for their first win of the young Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season when they host the Oceanside Generals tomorrow in a 7:30 p.m. start at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. The Glacier Kings opened their 2013-14 campaign Sept. 5 in Victoria with a 6-3 loss to the defending VIJHL champion Cougars. Their home opener on Sept. 7 was a barn-burner that Campbell River Storm won 3-2 in double overtime. Their Friday the 13th tilt with the Generals kicks off a two-game home stand against North Division rivals as the Nanaimo Buccaneers pay a visit on Saturday (game time 7:30 p.m. at SC Arena #1). On Sept. 5 in Victoria, the Cougars got two goals each from Nicholas Bower and Michael Fretz en route to their 6-3 victory over the

NEW ARRIVALS FROM

ANDREW GRANT CELEBRATES his gold medal in the Junior Sprint at the national track cycling championships.

Grant wins national title Andrew Grant from Merville won the national Junior Sprint title last week at the Canadian Track Cycling Championships in Dieppe, New Brunswick. The 18-year-old has been having a great

year, capturing many podium finishes, so he went into the track Nationals with high hopes. “I didn’t qualify very well in the morning, fifth, with my worst time all year,” he said afterwards. “My coach,

Houshang Amiri, was really great with helping me to stay focused going into the quarterfinals, and as I progressed through to the semis I started to gain some confidence. “As the day wore on I felt better and bet-

ter, the legs felt great, and by the time the finals came around I was in the gold ride and feeling good. I managed to take it with two straight wins. I am really excited to be bringing the jersey back to the Island.”

5 Fabulous Ingredients For Your Pet’s Diet

Does your pet’s breath knock you out?

Dr Stacey Ask Dr. Stacey It’s amazing how such a little mouth can scorch earth like dragon fire. Bad breath comes from bacteria in the mouth. When pets get tartar on their teeth imagine a microscopic crystalline city of multi family bacteria dwellings. They emit noxious gas (the bad breath), they break off and are swallowed causing upset tummies, and they get into the blood stream through red gums and seed to the heart, liver and kidneys causing damage over time. Just like us, a good cleaning goes a long way to a healthier and longer life. Now imagine asking your doggie to sit still while she gets her teeth

cleaned with a metal hand or ultrasonic scaler. Most would not sign up for this willingly. Now add a sedative only (not a full general anesthesia) where your dog or cat will lie comfortably while the cleaning takes place. Sign me up says Snoopy. So put that smile back into the family album and call us today for your complimentary dental checkup and we’ll let you know more about our easy sedation only teeth cleaning. September is “Knock Out Stinky Pet Breath Month” at Sunrise Vets. Come in for your complimentary dental exam and get 25% OFF the cleaning portion of you pets dental cleaning if they need it.

We’ve all heard about super foods that we should be adding to our diet because of their antioxidant and nutrient-rich properties, but did you know there are similar foods for our pets, too? • Pumpkin – We know that pumpkins are great for carving and delicious in pies, but pumpkin also is a source of fiber for pets that is high in vitamin A and beta-carotene. • Cranberries – For many of the same reasons that they are good for humans, cranberries also are good for our pets. They are high in anti-oxidants

and also are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese, which aids in pet urinary tract health. • Papaya – This delicious and exotic tropical fruit is rich in vitamin B, which aids in cell metabolism, and contains papain, an enzyme that can help in a pet’s digestion. • Chickpeas – Many of us enjoy chickpeas in salads, hummus and falafel balls. They also are good for our pets because they are rich in prebiotics, which stimulate the activity of bacteria in the digestive system and aid healthy digestion.

Benefits of early dog socialization

Responsible pet owners must set the course for discipline, socialization and training that can foster a long and healthy relationship. Being a responsible pet owner requires a substantial commitment. For dog owners, ensuring a dog is well fed and exercised and receives routine medical care are essential elements of responsible pet ownership. People new to dog ownership may not realize the importance of early socialization and training of their new pet. The importance of early puppy socialization, starts preferably before a puppy reaches 12 to 16 weeks

of age. This is a period of important critical development, which can help the animal grow into a welladjusted pet. New pet parents are encouraged to enroll in a training class for their puppies or, at the very least, to expose their puppies to other animals and people at an early age. The experience not only helps owners develop a strong bond with their pets but also enforces positive behaviour in a fun atmosphere. If unsocialized,

dogs may become aggressive or extremely off-put by other animals and people. Such dogs run a greater risk of being surrendered to a shelter. Although puppies may not have completed their complete run of immunizations at an early age, many vets agree that early socialization with other animals outweighs the risk of contracting an illness. The benefits of this socialization include proper interaction with people, off-leash play

to learn boundaries and bite inhibition with other puppies. Young pups are eager sponges, ready to absorb information from their environment and families. Early stimulation in a fun and supportive manner will help prevent some potential behavioral problems that can become more difficult to correct as a puppy grows into adulthood. Although it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks, it’s much easier to teach dogs when they are still eager puppies willing to learn. Barking, biting, digging, and jumping are all behaviors puppies are likely to engage in. It is key for pet owners to discourage these behaviors as early as possible because it can lead to a strained relationship between pet parent and animal if the dog continues to engage in these acts into adolescence. Very often dogs are chastised or surrendered simply because they were never taught the proper way to behave. It is not necessary to enroll in a puppy training class if owners feel confident in their abilities to

train the dog on their own. Working with the pet each and every day for a small amount of time will gradually drive home the necessary lessons. Heaping a large amount of praise on a job well done will posi-

tively reinforce desired actions. If a puppy training class is not part of a dog’s upbringing, at-home training and visits to a dog park or puppy daycare can provide the socialization the dog needs.

Special to the Record

For the past two winter seasons I have been attending Podium of Life Snow Sports Academy (on Mount Washington). This allowed me to train everyday to achieve my goal; to win gold in the 2018 Paralympics. My goal for the first season was just to train and race as much as I could, which I did in the Vancouver Island Society of Adaptive Snowsports (VISAS). The next season’s goal was to train with both the VISAS and also get into the able-bodied Mount Washington Ski Club (MWSC) which I did and had an excellent race season, winning many medals. It is now September 2013 and I have just received a letter from the BC Adaptive Snowsports inviting me to join the BC Para-Alpine Ski Team development program, which involves training with the B.C. team, attending Building Our Best camps and races, and competing in the BC Winter Games for this upcoming ski season. So once again I will be attending Podium of Life. I am now setting my new, short-term goals and training in preparation for the upcoming winter season.

Lawn bowlers rolling Pat Cutt

Contributor

As the season winds down, it sometimes seems to be speeding up.  Courtenay lawn bowlers are still on the move and the clubhouse and green are being well used. The green is in fabulous condition and bowling very fast.  The Aug. 31-Sept. 1 weekend had the Club Singles championship and Ernest and Carolyn Kassian won the Novice events.  Dean Penny won the Men’s with Vern Greenhill as runner-up,  Pat Cutt took the Ladies with Melie Ursulom close behind. The bowlers were in Parksville for the George Gibson Mixed Triples on Sept. 4-5. We had no one in the money there, but George himself played with Pat Cutt and Melie Ursulom for two wins and a tie but not good enough in that event. There were four teams with four wins, and Tom Renton of Nanaimo took the honours. Friday,  Sept. 6, was the send-off for Peter Harding and Michael Lynch and April Gilchrist and Sandy Tonnellier to the

Champion of Champions event in Stanley Park.  This is a Bowls BC sponsored event for club champions in Men’s Pairs and Women’s Pairs.  One player must be a relatively new bowler of less than four years.  April and Sandy  came third: no medals but some cash always helps.  While those four were off in The Big Smoke, the Zone Singles championship was in progress in Courtenay.  Club champions from each of the North Island clubs gathered with the exception of Beban Park, so Courtenay, as host, got to enter two players and lo and behold those two players,  Vern Greenhill and Dean Penny, came up with gold for Vern and silver for Dean. The ladies event also had two Courtenay players,  with Pat Cutt coming up with the gold while Mary Mulligan of Nanaimo won silver. Larry Stueby and Al Barrass won the gold and silver with Ernie Kassian third.  Novice Ladies went to Merry Danarti of Parksville with Carolyn Kassian claiming the silver.  Courtenay did very well  with four of the

Hunting helps reduce number of problem animals I

t is a challenge to move from an active fishing season – still ongoing – and open the hunting folder. We live in a blessed part of the Island that has a rich hunting resource along with our bountiful fishing. Technically our local archery season in Region 1 (Vancouver Island and some Coastal inlets) for black tailed deer and black bear opened Aug. 25 and grouse season opened Sept. 1. The first of several split seasons for Canada geese opened Sept. 7. The main firearms season for black tailed deer opened Sept. 10 throughout the region. Region 1 - Vancouver Island is one of nine resource management regions that regulate the hunting and trapping resources of the province. Many resident hunters from Vancouver Island make annual trips to the vast hunting regions of the Interior that are home to moose, elk, bison, mountain sheep, mountain goats and deer. While the thrill and challenges of big game hunting are significant factors in the rationale for the hunt, another important factor is the thousands of pounds of prime organic meat that is harvested each season.

run a short distance before it drops dead. This occasionally results in a deer expiring where somebody who is deeply offended by the dead animal gets all excited, calls the press and calls hunters all kinds of negative beings. The press will report that this picture may not be suitable for all members of your family. It is a reality of life that any meat we consume is normally dead – unless you enjoy raw oysters, which are eaten while the animal is still alive. I respectfully suggest that there is nothing pleasant about a dead animal that you had nothing to do with – such as a dead deer in your neighbourhood or as in the thousands of road deaths of animals on our streets and highways throughout the year. They are part of the reality show called Life. Hunting is a positive way of harvesting problem animals in congested rural and urban areas.

Donna Marie Messer November 18, 1942 – September 6, 2013 With painful reluctance and utter disbelief we announce the passing of Donna. A woman larger than life it seems so impossible that she is gone. She faced an unexpected and devastating cancer diagnosis with the same wit, intelligence, strength, fortitude and humour with which she lived her life. Donna is best recognized as the owner/operator of the Arizona Gift Gallery in the Comox Mall, a venture started 16 years ago with daughter Janice. She had a following of customers that filled her days with laughter and personal sharing and she spoke of you all with so much fondness. Predeceased by parents Freeman and Doris Coone she is survived by husband Jim, daughters Susan (Byers) of London, Ontario, Sharon (Thompson) of Edmonton, Alberta, Janice (Wright) of Comox, BC and sister Arlene (Al) Elias of Florida, USA and the planet’s most spoiled cat, Casey. To Carrie, Steve, Gloria, Deb and Gary: thank you so much for being there right when we needed you – she called you her angels. Special thanks also to the Comox Fire Department and to the Town of Comox who have demonstrated such kind and unfaltering humanity to Donna and her family. An informal gathering to celebrate the life of this most remarkable woman shall be held on Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the d’Esterre House 1801 Beaufort Avenue, Comox at 1 pm.

Dear Mom: Since you left I’ve been trying to figure out who I am without you. I know that I am strong – that I will stand by my convictions and always stand up for others. I know I have a sharp tongue, a quick wit and an easy smile. I am kind and intelligent; caring and loving. And then it occurred to me‌.I am not without you for I am you. And for that my beautiful, beautiful mother I am eternally grateful. Until we meet again I shall forever remain your devoted daughter, Janice.

Buschlen

Michael (Mike) Peter May 13, 1954 - August 17, 2013 It is with immense sadness and broken hearts that the Buschlen family announces the passing of Mike Buschlen at the age of 59. Mike fought a short but courageous battle with cancer and passed away only two months after being diagnosed with mesothelioma. He died peacefully at home with his loving family surrounding him. Mike was the beloved husband and best friend to his wife Judi, and cherished father to his two sons Andy & Greg (Lorelei). He also leaves to mourn, his sister Bonnie (Alan) of Victoria; brother Paul of Nanaimo; nieces Tara, Chelsea and Mary; nephews Donovan & Peter; Aunts Isabel and Enid and numerous cousins. Mike accomplished a lot in his lifetime and overcame much adversity. Mike was a highly accomplished master furnituremaker for 35 years. He and his wife Judi owned & operated Buschlen Furniture in the Comox Valley for over 20 of those years. Mike’s eye for style and design, as well as his intense attention to detail made his custom furniture pieces second to none. He was also a very skilled guitarist and played his guitar daily. He was a wonderful, loving, honest, fun and caring man with a great sense of humour, who was deeply committed to his family and friends. He will be very dearly missed by everyone who knew him. There will be no service at Mike’s request. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. Cards of condolence may be sent c/o PO Box 38, Merville, BC V0R 2M0 In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society - Mesothelioma Research would be most appreciated.

Thomas Harry McNee Born June 22, 1940 passed away suddenly at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, September 6, 2013. Born in Govan, Saskatchewan the eldest son of Cecil and Elaine McNee. He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Bev, his son Gerry (Panida), daughter Ann Janssen (Wessel), grandchildren; Heather, Amanda Gervais (Josh), Brittany (JT), Reymond Janssen (Ashley) and Anneke Janssen, great grandchildren; Sierra, Brianna, Alanna Janssen and Jordan. He is also survived by his brothers; Arnold, Robert, George, John and Norman. He was predeceased by son Bob and sister Dorothy. Tom was a proud 22 year member of the RCAF and 51 year member of various Lions clubs, the most recent being the Courtenay Monarch Lions Club. Tom also proudly served in the Knights of Columbus and was a member of the Courtenay Legion. The most important things in Tom’s life were his family, his friends and giving back to his community. He will be greatly missed. A Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated on Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013 at 11AM from Christ the King Catholic Church. If friends so wish, donations in Tom’s memory made to the Monarch Lions Club, the Canadian Kidney Association or the Knights of Columbus would be appreciated.

Taken From Me I’m sitting here in my room, looking at your picture./ Wondering why you couldn’t be a part of my future./ Uncontrollable tears stream down my face, while my heart beat starts to race. / Asking God why he took you from my life, it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife. / I still needed you here / you were the one to make everything so clear. / you are a part of me and I am a part of you / when you died a part of me died too. / I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love until the day you went to heaven above. / Even though I can’t see, / I know your up there watching over me. / I miss you more and more everyday / and all I can do is pray. / In my heart you shall forever remain.

Pickleball very popular

Racing set to wrap up

What makes the sport of pickleball so appealing? Pickleball is often played on a badminton-sized court with the net about two inches lower than a tennis net. The ball is a small polymer version of a waffle ball. The game is a combination of badminton, table tennis and tennis. In 1996 American politician Joel Pritchard promised his children he would

invent a new game for them. He lowered the net on his backyard badminton court, then went to his shed to fashion paddles out of plywood. Finally he borrowed a waffle ball from his neighbour and the game of pickleball was born. The Pritchards named the game after their dog Pickle, who is said to have chased the ball every time it went out of bounds. Since then pickleball

has become one of the fastest growing sports in North America. According to Pickleball B.C., the Comox Valley is the leader in fastest growth of the sport in the province. All ages (14 and up) lessons are being taught at the Comox Rec Centre on Sept. 17, 19 and 24 at 7 p.m. Course fee is $12 for three sessions. Phone 250-339-2255 to book. – Comox Valley Pickleball
