Ladysmith Secondary School students Grace Twedt, Alexa Spanevello, Kassandra Webber and Kennedy Hayes say they’re upset over course schedules that failed to meet their expectations, a position they say they share with hundreds of their fellow LSS students. The school delayed the distribution of student timetables until the first day of classes this year, said LSS principal Dave Street, leading to a flood of last-minute requests from students seeking revisions to their course schedules. Responding to complaints regarding long waits for scheduling changes, Street said LSS staff members were doing everything they possibly could to address the concerns of parents and students.

THE CHRONICLE

Principal Dave Street asks students and parents upset over unexpected changes to their timetables to place their faith in Ladysmith Secondary School’s administrative staff and counsellors. LSS counsellors are working 12 hours a day as they revise students’ timetables and match students to available courses, Street said, and he assured parents and students alike that “we’ve got a handle on things.” Street credited LSS’s two counsellors with working “upwards of 12-plus hours a day to accommodate students’ needs” in

spite of being met with “more abuse than they ever have” before. Having to contend with people exhibiting “very little tact” when communicating their timetable concerns with the school’s counselling staff means the counsellors “deserve a huge pat on the back for what they’ve been doing.” Traditionally, LSS has always distributed the following year’s completed course schedules to students in June, Street explained, providing students and parents with an opportunity to work with counsellors on revised schedules through early July and the last week of August. This year, however, LSS chose to distribSee School Page 4

THE CHRONICLE

As the first full week of classes unfolded at Ladysmith Secondary School, a hefty portion of the school’s students was left biding its time as counsellors scrambled to fill in the gaps in students’ timetables. Course schedules handed out on day one of the new school year failed to meet the needs or expectations of close to half of the school’s students, and the school hasn’t addressed students’ concerns quickly enough, say LSS students.

said the writing and English literature courses she thought she’d signed up for failed to materialize, a considerable inconvenience in light of her future aspirations. “I want to be an English teacher when I’m older,” she explained. Instead of devoting her time to studying Orwell or Shakespeare, Spanevello said she’s found herself in a “placeholder class” that, as of Friday afternoon, had yet to be filled. When she filled out her course survey last spring, Spanevello said she “definitely thought” that by jotting down her course selections, LSS would See Students Page 5

Air Cadets mark 70 years

LRCA marks National Seniors Day Ladysmith’s air cadet corps hosts parade and inspection Sunday October 1 The Ladysmith Resources Centre will host a complimentary luncheon Tuesday, October 1 to celebrate National Seniors Day. The event is free for seniors aged 55-plus and is intended to “acknowledge and thank seniors for their past and present contributions to their families, community, workforce and society.” The event will be hosted on the second floor of the Ladysmith Resources Centre from 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Food and refreshments will be followed by a presentation on issues impacting Ladysmith seniors, said Sharen Newton, coordinator of the seniors’ office at the LRCA, with priority being given to poverty, housing, food and health. Seating is limited to 100 seniors, Newton said, and reservations are necessary. Reservations can be made by calling the LRCA at 250-245-3079.

Advisory council seeks new members The Ladysmith Seniors Advisory Council is recruiting new members. The nine-person panel of volunteers meets once each month for an hour and a half, said Sharen Newton, coordinator of the seniors’ office at the LRCA. The LSAC “serves as an advocate for seniors in Ladysmith and the surounding area,” Newton said, and new members willing to “contribute their skills, expertise and wisdom in support of the social well-being of all seniors” are welcome to join. Willing volunteers must apply, Newton added. Volunteer application forms are available at the Ladysmith Resources Centre from 9 a.m. – 3:30 pm. Mondays through Fridays.

Fundraiser gala set for scholar-athlete

Fifteen-year-old Darian Harris has been accepted to Victoria’s prestigious Pacific Coast Hockey Academy and his family is bound and determined to help him foot the bill. Tim and Stephanie Harris, Darian’s father and aunt, have arranged a fundraising gala and golf tournament to help cover the cost of the academy’s $17,000 registration fee. The golf tournament is set for Saturday, Sept. 21 at the Mount Brenton Golf Course. Registration opens at 11:30 a.m. and the tournament’s first foursome is scheduled to tee off at 1:30 p.m. The tournament will be followed by a dinner and silent auction. Dinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. followed by the 7 p.m. auction. Stephanie said her nephew, a former member of the Bantam AAA Cowichan Valley Capitals, is the only First Nations hockey player expected to attend the academy.

Opinion

Passenger rail service off track

YOUR WORDS

“We have people here whose dedication to students and family and this community is unprecedented.”

LSS Principal Dave Street, Page 4

W

hile cycling to Maple Bay with Dave Steen and Tom Sharpe (see ‘Triple gold,’ page 12) last week, our conversation turned eventually to the return of passenger rail service to Vancouver Island communities. Sharpe, an avid cycling tourist, mentioned that he would prefer to see the rail line transformed into a cycling corridor along the lines of Greater Victoria’s Galloping Goose and Lochside trails, an opinion shared by Ladysmith resident Michael Smith in an Aug. 27 letter to the editor. In today’s issue, a letter from Chronicle reader Robert Johnson questions whether or not sufficient demand exists to justify spending millions of dollars in public funds to restore rail service to southern Vancouver Island. I became a huge fan of passenger rail service while living in South Korea (ROK). Summer weekends routinely involved me cramming my climbing and camping gear into a backpack in anticipation of hopping on a Saturday morning train to Gurye, the closest stop to Yongseo Pokpo, my favourite Korean crag. Trains were often full to capacity, meaning demand for rail service is alive and well in the densely populated ROK. The population density of the ROK is 20 times our own, though, meaning we may not have the people power to populate these trains. On top of that, cycling infrastructure is cheap: Portland spent as much on its entire cycling infrastructure as it would spend on an average mile of freeway. I think it’s time we all weighed in via a referendum. —Nick Bekolay

Relationships in the Digital Age One night, a small little voice was heard from the bedroom across the hall: “Daddy, I’m scared!” The response came quick: “Honey, don’t be afraid, Daddy’s right across the hall.” After a very brief pause, the little voice is heard again, “I’m still scared!” Again, a response: “You don’t need to be afraid. God is watching over you.” This time, the pause is longer ... but the voice returns, “Daddy, I want someone with skin on!”[1] That story from James Hewitt’s Illustrations Unlimited reminds us that as human beings, we were created for relationships — or to say it another way, we have been “hard-wired” for relationships. One interesting aspect of life in Canada in 2013 for many people is that a significant amount of relational time is not face to face, not touching “someone with skin on,” but rather through the digital avenues available to us such as

Points to Ponder Pastor Darin Phillips Oceanview Community Church

Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, texting and e-mail. I’m not an anti-technology Luddite by any stretch of the imagination. I have a Facebook page, text everyday, send e-mails and have been considering a Twitter account. At the same time as I have embraced these technological avenues for relationships, I wrestle with that voice in the back of my mind that puts up a cautionary flag. What are the inherent downsides to these digital services which allow us to connect with so many people around the globe for minimal costs? What could possibly be bad about such opportunities? After pondering this and reading an excellent book by Shane Hipps entitled Flickering Pixels: How Technology Shapes Your

Faith, I believe the answer to that question is the danger of replacement. The danger comes when we believe that replacing our face-to-face, handshaketo-handshake, hug-to-hug relationships with a Facebook message or a text is an equal trade. The words and pictures we send digitally are great, and I will personally continue to utilize them, but I’m also coming to the conviction that I shouldn’t rely on them. This past summer, I had the chance to meet up with an old college friend, Tom. Tom and I have kept in touch with some Facebook messages and e-mails over the years, but when he and his 10-year-old son came to Ladysmith, it was completely different. I gave Tom a good bear hug and lots of “It’s so great to see

you buddy!” statements. Not surprisingly, the Bible, the word of God which has proven to be timeless in its wisdom and its truth claims for thousands of years, is still relevant to us who inhabit the digital age. In the Apostle Paul’s letter to the newly-founded church in the Greek city of Thessalonika, Paul makes this timeless statement about human relationships at their best: “We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us.” So my challenge to you is to make time for the family, friends and neighbours that mean the most to you. Do not replace the face-to-face interactions with digital ones. Do not replace a hug with a text. Do not replace a cup of coffee with an email update. Technology is good and keep on using it, but remember, we all need “someone with skin on.”

Loss of trolley Your View lamented, LDCU lauded for sprucing up downtown Editor:

I would like to congratulate Ladysmith and District Credit Union on the fantastic mural they had painted on the lower parking lot wall! It looks great! Now all we need is for a couple of businesses downtown to spruce up their building fronts. Downtown Ladysmith needs some life. It is starting to look dull and drab. On another note, it will be sad to see the Trolley gone. I have seen tourists taking pictures of it and overheard a couple of young men in a local coffee shop point at it going by and saying ‘cool, they have a trolley in this town!’ I imagine there are photos of it in different parts of the world by now, and people referring to Ladysmith as the town with the Trolley. There were people in town concerned about the cost of running it. Buses don’t make money anywhere.

Editor: I want to complain that I had to drive a van full of kids all the way to Nanaimo pool to swim because the Duncan and Ladysmith pools were both closed at the same time for maintenance and cleaning. Why do they close while summer is still on and the kids are not back in school yet? And [why close] more than one local pool at the same time?

the harvest to build and race their own veggie-mobiles, Neligan said. A second familyoriented harvest party is scheduled to take place that evening from 5:30 – 8 p.m., Neligan said. The Friday-night event is open to the public and features music, lights, dancing and a host of homestyle crisps and pies for consumption. “If anyone has apples or pears or berries to donate, they can drop them off at Aggie Hall weekday mornings,” Neligan said. LaFF’s harvest parties are free events hosted at the Ladysmith Community Gardens, located at Second Avenue and High Street. Tickets for the Harvest Moon dance, meanwhile, can be purchased in advance from Salamander Books, 49th Parallel Printers and the Ladysmith Chronicle for $15 apiece or at the door the night of the dance for $18 each.

Gord and Kayla Henry emerge from the fog as they approach the corner of Stillin Drive and Dunsmuir Crescent Sunday morning during the Terry Fox Run. Over 100 participants and volunteers turned out for this year’s run, said Ladysmith Parks and Recreation coordinator Anita McLeod, navigating their way along a fog-shrouded 2.5-kilometre course as they helped “keep Fox’s dream alive for another year.” Ladysmith’s run raised $1,923 through donations, pledges and T-shirt sales, McLeod said.

LLT premieres Opening Night Ladysmith Little Theatre launched Opening Night, its first production of the 2013–14 season, Sept. 12. The LLT troupe delivered stellar performances as they brought to life a cast of quirky thespians and theatregoers caught up in an opening night gone wrong. PHOTO COURTESY LINDA BROWN

Lindsay Chung THE CHRONICLE

What a way to kick off the 10th season at Ladysmith Little Theatre. The first production of the 2013-14 season, Norm Foster’s Opening Night, is a hilarious show about theatre, relationships and people, filled with lines that will make you laugh out loud. Opening Night, which opened Sept. 12, is the story of the opening night of a Broadway production gone horribly wrong. As the play unravels, so do relationships. Jack and Ruth Tisdale have come to the theatre to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Ruth is so excited to be there, but Jack would much rather be at home watching the baseball game. The lovable Tisdales meet many interesting characters in the VIP Lounge of the Charles Killian Theatre Noir Repertory House before the play starts. One is Richard Hyde-Finch, the pompous, sarcastic director, played wonderfully by Chris Ostaffy. Everything that could go wrong does for Hyde-Finch, who has to deal with actors, wannabes and has-beens, and on top of it all, a girlfriend who wants to talk about their relationship and why he won’t commit. Mort Paul does a fantastic job playing Michael Craig, an actor who can’t even get an audition these days and is best known as Handy Randy, the socket wrench in a hardware store commercial. He has some great lines and is very memorable. As actor Clayton Fry, Vic Duffhues is great, and his accent, which he says was inspired by Pepe Le Pew, is sure to make you laugh. Opening Night represents the acting debut of Lee Cadwallader and Chance Nobert, and they both do an excellent job. Cadwallader plays

Tom Delaney, a waiter in the VIP Lounge who wants to be on stage, while Nobert plays Libby Husniak, the young star of the Broadway show Whisper on the Wind, who causes more than a few problems for Hyde-Finch. Debbie Williams plays Ruth Tisdale and is also Opening Night’s director. As the woman who received cans of wood stain for her 25th wedding anniversary, she brings a lot of warmth to the stage. Charles Harman is sweet as the bumbling Jack Tisdale, who can’t seem to do or say anything right. Jennifer Hodi is lovely as Hyde-Finch’s longsuffering girlfriend, the elegant Cilla Fraser. As the night goes on and everything unravels, she keeps trying to talk to Hyde-Finch about their relationship and is suspicious that he’s cheating on her with Husniak. Opening Night is an entertaining story, but it’s the people who really shine. The characters in this play are sweet, sarcastic, upset, unsure and very human, and every actor does a wonderful job of bringing them to life and making them relatable. Opening Night is a great introduction to Ladysmith Little Theatre if you haven’t been to our community theatre yet and a great night out if you’re a regular theatregoer. Stepping into the theatre, which received a fresh new look over the summer, you’ll find a ton of laughs and a ton of talent. Opening Night runs until Sept. 29 at Ladysmith Little Theatre at 4985 Christie Rd. For more information, call 250-924-0658 or visit www.ladysmiththeatre.com.

FAIRCHILD, John Winter August 18, 1924 - August 23, 2013 The ninth of 10 children, John was born in Quebec City to Stuart Lemoine Fairchild and Sarah Marjorie Boomer. At seventeen, John joined the Royal Canadian Navy and served on the HMCS Athabaskan during WW2. He was a prisoner-ofwar in Germany when he was 19 until he escaped towards the end of the war. Following the war, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force and served for many years but his love of the sea remained throughout his life and he always insisted that he had never swallowed the anchor. He was a dedicated member of the Royal Canadian Legion and supported the survivors of the Athabaskan throughout the rest of his life. John was a loyal and proud man. He was a jack-of-alltrades, an avid sailor, reader and cat lover. He was a great story teller with a wonderful sense of humour and a twinkle in his eye. John will be greatly missed by his wife, Pam; his sons, Peter and Richard; and his adopted daughters, Tracy and Sian. He was predeceased by his ďŹ rst wife, Pat and his eldest son, Michael. He is survived by his older sister, Annabelle and his youngest brother, Bobby. He leaves behind eleven grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, relatives and friends across Canada and throughout the United States. A memorial gathering to celebrate John’s life will take place in Ladysmith on November 2nd at the Royal Canadian Legion. Those wishing to make a charitable contribution in John’s name, may do so to the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital, Palliative Care Unit. Telford’s of Ladysmith 250-245-5553
