conditions of Parkinson’s disease. The victim impact statement was actually completed by Kathy Denton, because her husband’s hands shake so much he can no longer write legibly. Evans, however, suggested Denton should prove his claim that the knifepoint robbery made his condition worse. In response, Fitzsimmons said he would call Denton and his doctor to testify in order to prove the claim, but Judge Ted Gouge had another idea. The fact that Graham used a knife in the robbery and was also convicted of dangerous driving, might also be considered other than just Denton’s worsened condition. “This is a very difficult sentencing decision,” Judge Gouge admitted. High on Acid According to various psychological reports, Joseph Graham is an intelligent young man, who had some minor issues with depression when he was a young teen. However, he never got into any real trouble until his 18th year. Graham had just completed high school, took a celebratory trip to Europe, and then returned home to Campbell River where he began hanging out with drug-taking friends.
He tried magic mushrooms, LSD (acid), and then one day he went overboard. Sometime in the early morning of April 2, 2012, Graham ingested between five and seven “hits” of acid. He later told a psychiatrist that he awoke that morning believing he was dead and the people around him were creations of his imagination. The doctor diagnosed it as a “short psychotic episode.” Wearing nothing but track pants, and carrying a knife, Graham wandered across the street and encountered insulators who were coming to work at the Dentons’ home. According to Kathy Denton, she saw Graham walking up the street with the knife and called 911. So did the insulators who fled after Graham began banging on the side of their van.
But Dave Denton didn’t see Graham and went downstairs to let the insulators inside. Instead he encountered Graham who walked by him and was about to enter the Denton’s home. According to Denton, he asked Graham where he was going and that’s when the young neighbour turned around, pointed the knife at him and demanded the keys to the car. Denton quickly complied and then Graham drove away in the couple’s brand-new Nissan Leaf, a fully electric vehicle. He was gone by the time police arrived, but they caught up to him on the Highway 28 General Hill where he’d been subdued by other motorists. Graham had driven the wrong way up the hill, forced vehicles off the road, and was finally stopped when the
small car was crunched between two other vehicles – a dump truck and a pickup. Graham was taken into custody and charged with robbery, assault with a weapon, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and four counts of mischief. He admitted to all the facts in the case, but pleaded not guilty to robbery based on his hallucinatory condition. At trial though, he was also found guilty of robbery. Afterwards Following his arrest, Graham was released on bail and placed on strict conditions, including house arrest. Since then he’s abided by all the conditions, has remained sober, has the support of his family, works with his father and is taking some college business courses.

He’s described as a very low risk to re-offend and a psychiatrist’s report states that jail would not serve any beneficial purpose. “He’s shown remorse. “He feels awful about the robbery and making Mr. Denton feel scared in
injury offences, an issue still to be decided by Judge Gouge who urged both lawyers to reconsider or restate their positions when the sentencing hearing resumes. The next court date is expected to be set on Monday.

Things are starting to come together on the downtown construction project. Crews have completed the underground work on Alder Street and on Wednesday, paving crews came in to lay down the blacktop. Work is expected to continue to year’s end.
Logo fee questioned Kristen Douglas
Campbell RiveR miRRoR
The Strathcona Regional District is being billed by the Storm junior hockey team for advertising that regional district staff say is not in the budget. The $3,675 charge is for a regional district logo place at centre ice at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena. The Storm say the charge is consistent with other sponsorship rates for that spot. Tom Yates, corporate services manager for the regional district, informed the Strathcona Gardens Commission of the charge in Sept. 6 report. “The work in question was not included in the 2013-2017 financial
plan and, to our knowledge, was not approved by staff prior to the expense being incurred,” he wrote. The Storm, in a letter to the the commission, said the regional district indicated it wanted to show its support for the Storm through advertising. “There was an expressed desire to have some sort of presence on the ice representing the SRD and going with a logo was the best balance.” At a Gardens meeting Sept. 11, commissioners voted to have regional district staff meet with the Storm regarding the invoice and then have staff come back with a report on recommendations for dealing with the charge.

The agreement includes use of office space, shared use of the fitness studio, Pinecrest room, Dogwood room, VIP North room and common areas and provides for up to 140 games and practices per season. In exchange, the Storm pay $2,750 per month.

Mountie rides in her memory Tour de Rock arrives at CR Common Mall on Tuesday afternoon It was 1998, and Mountie Marc Lavergne had just been transferred to the RCMP detachment in Campbell River. It was also the early days of Tour de Rock, the newest edition to the Cops For Cancer bicycle ride, and from that moment, Lavergne knew it was a fundraiser he wanted to be a part of. “It’s very positive. Everybody’s got their fundraising goal, which all goes to a great cause, and everyone’s there for the same reason, to help kids and families,” says the 56-year-old. This year, Lavergne is totally “on board” for the Tour de Rock and is one of the riders making the long trek from Port Hardy to Victoria, stopping in Campbell River this coming Tuesday. Actually, the ride begins Sunday in Port Alice, heads up to Port Hardy and then back down Island (see the full schedule below). Lavergne now serves as the ceremonial, protocol and advisory noncommissioned officer for the Island District RCMP, and he’s riding
in memory of Pauline Topola. She was a co-worker battling pancreatic cancer and Lavergne asked if he could ride for her. The plan was to meet at the finish line in Victoria on Oct. 4. In an e-mail response to Lavergne’s request, Topola wrote, “You have given me a goal to work toward to be present at the finish line in Victoria. I am so humbled and honoured.” Sadly, she died shortly after sending the e-mail. Lavergne will be carrying a photograph of Topola as he rides the length of Vancouver Island to help raise money for cancer research and for Camp Goodtimes, a summer camp for children who’ve been touched by cancer.

Clean Catch Basins Prevent Flooding YOU CAN HELP!
In your neighbourhoods this rainy season, please help by cleaning the leaves from catch basin grates close to your home. Heavy seasonal rains bring the threat of ﬂooding. As trees shed leaves, some catch basins become blocked. When water cannot enter, ﬂooding results. With approximately 3,300 catch basins in Campbell River, some will be plugged by leaves and other debris during each heavy rainfall. Many of the City’s catch basins are connected to drainage systems that discharge to environmentally sensitive ﬁsh bearing streams. Keep oil, paint, and other contaminants away from catch basins to prevent pollution and ﬁsh kills. Damaged catch basins can be reported to the City of Campbell River, Dogwood Operations at 250-286-4033. Thanks for your help!

Our Our View View
MMBC puts wrong people in charge Recycling is a common activity in many Canadian municipalities and has been for some time now. Unfortunately, recycling programs cost money to run, in the form of We say: Where salaries for the collectors, the vehicles, etc. is the consumer These costs are borne by local representation on governments and in turn by the residents by way of taxation. the board? Nonetheless you would be hardpressed to find someone who complains about the cost of recycling, we all want to do our part.
The one group not doing their part is the manufacturers of products, the products that come in packaging, the packaging that necessitates the establishment of recycling programs. The provincial government, in an effort to force participation by industry in the process passed legislation requiring industry to establish a stewardship plan. In response, industry established the Multi-material BC, MMBC, a not-for-profit organization formed to take over recycling stewardship in British Columbia. The goal of the MMBC stewardship plan is to transfer the costs of recycling from government and taxpayers to
industry and their consumers. Let’s be clear, taxpayer equals consumer, so we’re still on the hook. MMBC has a board of directors, three to be exact. Two are from industry, and the third has previous ties to industry. This is pretty much like putting a vampire in charge of a blood bank. Where are the board members representing the other half of the equation: the consumers, us? – Black Press
I want a voice I am writing this letter express my profound disagreement with City Council’s adoption of the above borrowing By-Laws (totaling $15,000,000.00) without going to referendum. I, for one, want a voice in how the city decides to spend tax-payer’s money. Every elector in this city should have the opportunity to mark a ballot expressing their wishes in this matter, rather than letting council only make the decisions. An elector has to be 18 years of age or older, a Canadian citizen, lived in B.C. for six months and lived in the City of Campbell River for 30 days before signing the forms. To that end I am encouraging all electors in the City to get the forms (2 for each person – one for each By-law) complete them and get them delivered to City Hall not later than Sept. 23 at 4:30 p.m. In fact, have them delivered earlier than that if you possibly can. If anyone requires forms I will provide them and have them delivered to city hall for you. Just call me at 250-2031741, and if busy leave a message, and I will arrange to have forms provided and delivered for you.

BC Hydro moving to the back burner Tom Fletcher B.C. Views
When Christy Clark became premier in 2011, one of her first priorities was to delay steep increases in BC Hydro rates. BC Hydro was heading to the B.C. Utilities Commission to apply for rate increases totalling 32 per cent over three years. This, obviously, was a problem for an unelected premier whose single message was that she was good for families, and who faced an election in two years. The government’s Mr. Fix-It, Rich Coleman, first tried to delay a couple of expensive seismic upgrades, adding to the long history of political fiddles that pushed off expensive problems. BC Hydro’s engineers soon convinced him that if the creaky old Ruskin and Campbell River dams were to bust in a quake, it wouldn’t be good for families
downstream. Coleman scraped up some internal savings in the vast utility and met Clark’s pre-determined target of keeping rate increases below four per cent in the preelection period. Mission accomplished, as George W. Bush might have said. Then last week, an August working paper on the need for BC Hydro rate hikes was leaked. It showed BC Hydro making a case for new increases totaling 26 per cent over two years. The leak came via the Canadian Office and Professional Employees local 378, the BC Hydro inside staff union that has a history of mostly juvenile attacks on the B.C. Liberal government. Bill Bennett, the current energy minister, spent the next couple of days repeat-
ing to anyone who would listen that this initial proposal had already been rejected, and that work was well along to make the rate increase more palatable. Perhaps it’s back to where it was in 2011. COPE 378 and the NDP played their rehearsed roles. Both tried to blame the situation on private power contracts. The union and its political front are less concerned about rising power bills than they are about holding onto the state monopoly on electricity generation. Energy industry lawyer David Austin calculates that of the proposed 26.4-percent increase, about 3.5 per cent can be attributed to BC Hydro buying power from private sources, at prices competitive with new public power sources such as the Site C dam. Most of it comes from
the overdue repairs to those old dams, other costly projects including the addition of turbines to two Columbia River dams, and deferred debt from previous political meddling. In August I reported that as many as 20 of BC Hydro’s existing private power purchase contracts will be cancelled or deferred. This was also seized upon to portray private power as the root of all evil, both financially and environmentally. In fact, the attrition rate on these projects has always been about one out of three. This is what happens when the risks of expanding the provincial electrical grid are shared with private investors.

Fletcher: Hydro’s bills coming due
Continued from Pg. 8
These run-of-river and wind projects were promoted to maximize clean energy sources, as well as to spread the grid to remote areas. This was Gordon Campbell’s climate change strategy. Then came the gas boom. Clark seized upon liquefied natural gas exports as the key to future prosperity, and the government soon declared burning gas “clean” as long as it facilitates LNG production. Bennett now acknowledges that gas-fired power plants are an option for the future. They are cheaper than hydro, small or large. Bennett’s two tasks are to supply industry with cheap power and get consumer rates under control. It looks as if the gas is being turned up, and Site C is moving to the back burner.

New channel will aid fish habitat at golf course Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR
Dump trucks and excavators are busy working at Storey Creek Golf Club to replace a manmade water channel to help juvenile coho make their way to a pond just off the greens. The project, which is being funded by the Campbell River Salmon Foundation, Store y Creek Golf Club, and Nyrstar Myra Falls operation, is within the Woods Creek watershed and is located adjacent to
Kristen Douglas/the Mirror
the 14th hole on the golf course. Gord Lawrence, a surveyor working on the project, said that currently the fish are being thwarted by the elevation of the existing manmade channel in reaching the 300 metre long pond which lies to the west of the 14th fairway. “The fish come up and there’s too much elevation so they can’t jump up the way it is,” Law-
rence said. “We’re going to make a new manmade ditch so the fish can get up to the pond which is good fish habitat.” The pond is groundwater fed with very little water level fluctuations throughout the year.

The barrier is a one metre vertical drop down into a wooden flume, roughly 100 metres long, which is not a suitable habitat for the fish as the sides of the flume are rotting and starting to collapse. The new bypass, however, will divert the fish around the impediment. The new channel will have a slope ranging from 0.5 - 4.4 per cent and have a combination of riffles and shallow
pools with a gravel substrate. With the barrier removed, juvenile coho from the lower parts of Woods Creek will be able reach the pond and use it as overwintering habitat; the new channel is expected to provide more in stream habitat. While the work is being carried out, the original channel remains in place. Once construction is complete on the new bypass, the original channel will be filled in and the flow will be directed into the new channel.

on Vancouver Island Why an Aquaculture Awareness Week? Did you know that the three largest companies who produce British Columbia’s largest agricultural export - farm-raised salmon – are all based right here in Campbell River? Did you know that salmon farming provides around 6,000 jobs on Vancouver Island? Did you know that BC’s salmon farmers are committed to being environmentally, economically and socially sustainable? These are just a few of the pieces of information that we as salmon farmers want to share with our neighbours this week as we celebrate our third annual Aquaculture Awareness Week. This week is our chance to raise awareness of who we are, what we do and why we do it and also to celebrate the hard working men and women who have made our industry what it is today. And today we look very different than we have in the past. Salmon farming is a relatively new industry – starting with a few decades ago with a few mom-and-
pop operations that were interested in trying something new. From there we’ve grown and developed, made mistakes and learned from them to become a world-class industry that sets the bar when it comes to sustainability. That’s why Aquaculture Awareness Week is important to us. It’s our chance to recognize where we’ve come from, where we are and where we want to go in the future. From the recently announced Global Salmon Initiative to seeking third party certifications to new research and technologies, our industry is committed to always improving.
our industry operates responsibly and sustainably now and into the future.
That’s a big picture – but it’s one the salmon farmers in your community are thinking about regularly. Our Famous ocean explorer and commitment to environmental researcher Jacques Yves Cousteau protection, attention to responsible said that we must farm the seas, and practices and dedication to the that’s what aquaculture is all about. communities where we operate are Farm-raised fish production has now all brush strokes in that big picture. overtaken beef production and is Aquaculture will be critical in growing, as is the demand for fish providing food for the future – and protein.

Graffiti artist Adam Lewis stands in front of one of his works of art on the wall of the Campbell River Bowling Centre with two samples of his canvas paintings. All three pieces depict his signature work – funky scripts.
Kristen Douglas/the Mirror
It’s art, not tagging Kristen Douglas CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Adam Lewis is breaking down barriers and trying to shed some positive light on what is often perceived as a negative. Lewis is a graffiti artist who stays true to his work. He only paints legally and has even been commissioned by a few local groups to paint the walls of their buildings. Lewis’ work can be seen on the side of the Campbell River Bowling Centre, on the wall of Swicked Cycles, and on the sidel of the Campbell River Youth Soccer Association’s club house on Merecroft Road. The soccer association was so impressed with Lewis’ work that they’ve adopted the logo he used on the mural onto the association’s business cards. “I just want to shed some light that there is a positive side to this type of art,” Lewis said. “I only paint legally, I don’t tag. I’m interested in building myself as an artist and doing legal, paid graffiti.” Lewis’ repertoire also includes the famous “Nerv” scrawl on the graffiti wall at the Nunns Creek skateboard park. It’s the only spot, other than the skatepark on Quadra Island, that is legal on the North Island for graffiti artists to show their work. Lewis said it’s unfortunate there are such limited opportunities because he believes if the stigma
around graffiti were erased and youth were given a spot to paint, it may deter the work of taggers. “I do feel if Campbell River erected a legal wall, it would definitely slow down the problems with tagging,” Lewis said. “I think Nunns Creek would be a great place to erect it. It’s central. I think the kids tagging right now are young, they don’t have a car, so I think if it was far away it wouldn’t work as well. It would be a place where everybody is welcome, there’s no hate or racism.” Lewis, who has been a graffiti artist since the age of 15, credits the skatepark on Quadra Island where he grew up, and a wellknow graffiti artist who painted there, as his inspiration. “I consider myself a semi-professional and I developed my entire skill set at the Quadra skatepark and this tiny wall (at the Nunns Creek skatepark) and I’ve broken down barriers,” Lewis said. “I’ve been able to go off and be commissioned to paint murals for people even though, at this time in Campbell River, it’s still considered a negative art form. I’m trying to make it possible for people. I think if there’s a greater acceptance of that in this town, it will give the youth a more positive outlet to express themselves.” And while Lewis got his start in graffiti, he also does canvas paintings. Several of his pieces were on display at this year’s River City
Arts Festival and he did a live installation with spray paint. His work earned him this year’s People’s Choice Award. His work is becoming so popular that he receives requests from paying customers for his canvas paintings. Lately, he has had several orders for prints of his customer’s children’s names. “I really like fonts and funky script,” Lewis said. “I like to get really colourful.” When he was a student at Carihi, he was asked to paint a mural in the school’s courtyard and he chose a piece with the word “respect’ scrawled across the wall, with First Nations designs incorporated into the art. Lewis’ work can also be found at skateparks in Victoria, Parksville and Courtenay – some of the few places where graffiti is legal. “I can’t stress enough I think they need a legal space (in Campbell River) for graffiti, I think it would slow down the sprawl of taggers,” Lewis said. In the meantime, he hopes to take his message to the youth who are tagging that there are better ways of getting their art work out to the public. Lewis is currently in discussions to do an outreach program, speaking to high school students in Comox about graffiti art and his experience with an art form that has given him so much.

Five-part course can help get that writing project out of you Get started on that languishing writing project this winter with a family history and biography class at the Museum at Campbell River. This is a repeat of a popular five-part class last winter by authors Annette Yourk and Jeanette Taylor. The new session starts on Sunday, Oct.- 6 and continues to November 10, from 1-4 p.m., with a break for the Thanksgiving weekend. Yourk and Taylor have a lot to offer participants who want to advance their writing skills and learn the basics of historical research. A graduate from SFU’s Writing and Publishing program, Yourk also holds an instructors’ diploma in adult education. She has many years of experience writing and
editing, and has designed and taught coursework to a range of learners. Taylor is a B.C. historian who has worked both at the BC Archives and at the Museum at Campbell River. She has four non-fiction books in print, including River City, A History of Campbell River and the Discovery Islands and Tidal Passages, a History of the Discovery Islands. Her current project is a history of the colonial era on Vancouver Island, told through one man’s experience. The first run of this course filled within days. Taylor says it was very exciting to watch participants plunge into their writing projects, inspired by in-class exercises and take home assignments that dovetailed with each
Learn to tell stories with photography The Campbell River Arts Council and the Museum at Campbell River, as part of the 2013 Haig-Brown Memorial Lecture, are offering an opportunity to attend a workshop by this year’s lecturer Harold Rhenisch. The workshop will be given on Saturday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Museum at Campbell River. In the morning session from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, the theme will be Photographing for Blogging. Bring your digital camera and walk with Rhenisch through the scenery of Campbell River and learn the techniques of photography as a form of environmental narrative. The techniques Rhenisch will share will lead to intensified visual narratives and complementary suites of photographs perfectly suited for blog narratives, photo books and serial work on Facebook. After the walk, participants will be guided into the kinds of narratives that can be built out of walking-based photography. The afternoon session will be guided into mapping their images into presentational formats. The afternoon session will be from 1-4 p.m. and is entitled Renewing Environmental Language through Photographic Narrative. Participants
individual’s project. The students appreciated the guidance, handouts and support Taylor and Yourk provided. “Through your presentations of your own experiences,” wrote Jean Mottershead, a student from last winter’s class, “I gained new insights into writing and publishing. The whole experience was enjoyable and inspiring.” Taylor and Yourk will touch on the full gamut of a writing project, from research and writing to self-publishing and ways to make a successful pitch to a publisher. The fee for the class is $140. To register call the Museum at Campbell River at 250-287-3103. Spots are limited so you’re urged to register soon.

New parking lots open for Campbell River Hospital Two new parking lots opened this week on 2nd Avenue to accommodate construction of Campbell River’s new $266 million, 95-bed hospital. The new parking lots will add 140 hospital parking stalls west of Yucalta Lodge. Please see attached image. These will make up for the loss of a similar number of parking stalls south of the existing hospital, around the helipad, when construction of the new hospital begins in early 2014. The two temporary lots have separate entrances oﬀ of 2nd Avenue, one entrance is just east of Dogwood Street. The second lot is accessed through the western Yucalta Lodge parking lot entrance. Plans for the new Campbell River hospital call for more than 430 new parking spaces in parkade and surface parking.
will explore and practice new ways of writing that moves beyond books into photographs and community building. The workshop will examine contemporary possibilities for words and photographs to strengthen each other into intense and pleasurable communication tools. Through blogging and photo-book exercises, discussion and readings, the workshop process will provide a path to creating engaging, image-rich language. The cost for this combined workshop is $50. Call the Museum at 287-3103 to register or email to arts.council@ crarts.ca.

Fire Hall open house will benefit Cameryn’s Cause
Want a chance to climb the 75-foot fire truck ladder, cut open cars and hose down flames? The Campbell River Fire Department invites everyone to its annual open house event. “Last year’s open house was very well attended, with hundreds of people showing up and trying different activities. Cameras were clicking constantly for four hours,” says Fire Chief Ian Baikie. “This year, we’d like even more people to get a chance to see how we respond
to emergencies and to learn about fire safety and prevention.” During the open house, fire crews will demonstrate how they rescue people trapped in crashed cars, and how they prepare to hose down a house fire. The fire trucks will be open for people to view, with firefighters available to explain how the equipment works. People will also have hands-on opportunities to try firefighting and emergency-response skills like climbing the fire truck ladder, using
semi-monthly / 60 mos. at 3.9%
a fire hose and fire extinguisher and cutting vehicle parts with hydraulic tools. For people who’ve worked up an appetite, a barbecue will also be part of the event. Proceeds will support Cameryn’s Cause, a nonprofit society in Campbell River that provides financial assistance to local families with sick and injured children. The open house will take place between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 21 at the No. 1 Fire Station, located at 13th Ave. and Dogwood St.

If you find seals on the beach try n o t t o re s c u e them, they can be very aggressive and they have sharp teeth.
Hard not to find seals enchanting
Seals are one of the most common marine mammals found in our local waters. They are also a controversial issue to many people. Seals are a wildlife species that are loved by many naturalists but fishermen are not so enamoured. However these animals are a very important part of the food chain providing food for the orcas and many other marine mammals. Seals also provide important informa-
tion on the health of the ocean and shores. It is hard not to find these creatures enchanting, especially when they are just pups. They often appear helpless and vulnerable and it is often hard to know if the seal is in distress and in need of our help. Van c ouve r Is l an d waters are home to a variety of seals, the Pacific harbour seal is the best known and is classified as a “true or walking” seal. As elegant as they are in water, they

Distracted driving third leading cause of fatal crashes
This week’s Share the Road article is aimed directly at drivers! This month ICBC is teaming up with the B.C. government and police all over the province for a month-long crackdown on distracted driving, with the slogan ‘Leave the Phone Alone’. It has been illegal to use personal electronic devices, including a hand-held cell phone, while driving in B.C. since Jan. 1, 2010. Penalties include a $167 fine and three penalty points. Despite this, distracted driving is the third leading cause of fatal collisions in B.C., behind speeding and impaired driving, and caused a quarter of all crashes between 2008 and 2012. What is distracted driving? Distracted driving is
Cyclists are not nearly as visible as other vehicles on the road, so are at even more risk from distracted drivers.
any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, cyclists and pedestrian’s safety. These types of distractions include: n Texting n Using a cell phone or smart phone
n Eating and drinking n Talking to passengers n Grooming n Reading, including maps n Using a navigation system n Watching a video n Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player But, because text mes-
saging requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver, it is by far the most alarming distraction. So what’s all this got to do with cycling? As a cyclist you are sharing the road with drivers, some of whom may fall into the Distracted Driver category. You are not nearly as
BC brewery invites salmon enhancement applications
Central Vancouver Island salmon enhancement volunteer organizations are being invited to apply for project funding from the Pacific Western Brewing (PWB) Community Foundation. The Foundation has established a $20,000 fund to support grassroots salmon enhancement initiatives in British Columbia. Kazuko Komatsu, owner of the Prince George-based brewery, says: “When our representatives visit communities on the Coast they hear a common theme of concern about the pressing need to replenish our precious wild salmon stocks. Hundreds of tireless volunteers are working hard in BC communities to rebuild salmon stocks and rehabilitate streams. PWB wants to help.” Applications should support the protection, conservation, enhancement or rehabilitation of Pacific salmon and their habitat. Projects can range

from community-based stream keeping and habitat rehabilitation to the enhancement of salmon stocks. Applicants should represent volunteer based organizations and are asked to provide information that assures PWB that their organization is qualified to undertake a project. Relevant permits or letters of support from appropriate government
agencies such as Fisheries and Oceans Canada should be included with the application. To submit an application go to PWB’s website home page ( www.pwbrewing.com) and follow the prompt. The PWB Community Foundation will be adjudicating requests for support this fall. Komatsu believes her brewery has a duty to give back to the commu-
nity. She calls it “investing where we live.” True to her word she supports numerous initiatives including: Forests for Tomorrow, a tree planting campaign with a goal of planting one million trees by 2020; ongoing educational funding to the University of Northern BC and Simon Fraser University; Hometown Heroes and local sports organizations.

Flag’s westerly tour stops in Campbell River 24 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || FRIDAY, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER SEPTEMBER 20, 20, 2013 2013 24
This year the Canadian Power and Sail Squadrons (CPS) is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Two anniversary flags are making a relay across Canada, one to the east and into the Atlantic and another to the west and into the Pacific. Both flags started their journey in Windsor, Ont. and are being passed from one squadron to the next. On Sept. 17, the western flag arrived on Vancouver Island at the Little River BC Ferries terminal. It flew atop
the mast of the BC Ferries vessel Queen of Burnaby, next to the BC Ferries flag. Once on the Island it will be waved by each squadron in turn travelling from north south via Campbell River, Comox Valley, Parksville, Port Alberni, Nanaimo, Gabriola Island, Ladysmith and Cowichan before moving to Salt Spring Island. Each local squadron will celebrate the presence of the flag in their town with their own local events. In Campbell River, Mayor Walter
Jakeway welcomed the flag at city hall and posed with it for pictures on the Campbell River waterfront. The westerly flag will eventually be dipped in the Pacific near Sooke. After their soaking, it and the eastern flag will be dried and taken to Toronto and will form the centrepiece of the CPS 75th conference and AGM. One flag will then be given to colleagues in United States Power Squadrons and take part in their 100th anniversary celebrations.

CPS is known nationally as the premier organization teaching safe boating. CPS was founded in the summer of 1938 by boaters who went from Windsor across the border to Detroit and took courses from their colleagues in the United States Power Squadron. They realized that Canada needed a similar safe boating teaching organization and founded CPS. CPS is a nationally-registered not-for-profit corporation with 26,000 members. Canada’s 165 squadrons form larger units called districts. The Vancouver Island North District covers the Island from the Malahat to the north of the Island, while the Vancouver Island South District covers the Gulf Island and the Capital Region. These local squadrons teach courses ranging from how to tie knots, how to anchor safely, how to read the weather to how to navigate safely offshore using GPS and celestial navigation. Squadrons delve much deeper than just the basic pleasure craft operators requirements, although they teach that as well.

Drive Smart BC Wrong Way on the Freeway When you are driving on the freeway and the yellow line appears on the right side of your vehicle, it’s past time to correct the problem. You are driving on the wrong side of the road! Contrary to what one might think, instances of wrong way driving on divided highways are not rare. Thank goodness most instances are corrected by the wrong way driver before a crash occurs.
The most common contributing factors that place a driver on the wrong side of the freeway include impairment by alcohol or drugs, confusion (most often new or elderly drivers), inattention and deliberate choice. Confusion can be corrected for with logical ramp design and obvious signage. Inattention, alcohol and drugs can be controlled by the driver as well as most deliberate choices. The most frightening to me is the idea that very little can be done to deter a driver that has decided on suicide. According to the BC Coroners Service there were 7 motor vehicle incident deaths in 2009 and 8 in 2010 due to suicide. There was no way of determining if these were single or multiple vehicle collisions. What can you do to protect yourself from the wrong way driver? Watch the highway well ahead for signs of problems, which may include headlights on the wrong side. Use the left most lane of the highway as little as possible, especially on corners. Wrong way drivers usually drive in the inside lane or inside shoulder, believing they are actually on a two-lane highway.
Tammy Pentney (fourth from left) from the Campbell River Hospital cancer care unit, accepts a cheque from dragon boater Linda Stopa (third from left) for new hospital equipment. Supporting the donation are members from Campbell River’s dragon boat teams, Stacey Marsh (far left) of the Hospital Foundation as well as (back row from left) Ian Roberts of Marine Harvest, Cyriel DeBruyne of Quality Foods and Bob Nicoll of Glen’s Kettle Korn.
Did You Know. . .
AWG MANAGMENT Disability Benefits are available for injured Homemakers? If you are a homemaker who takes care of your household, ICBC 3X4 may pay you up to $145 per week to cover homemaker expenses. To be eligible, your injury must substantially or continuously stop you from “regularly performing most of the household tasks”. This coverage pays for you to hire someone to come into your home to clean. Although the law states that coverage will not pay for a family member to do the work, the Court has ruled that as long as your family member did not reside with you before the accident and comes specifically to help because of the accident, ICBC must pay.

Hospital Foundation benefits from dragon boat regatta
Campbell River dragon boaters are showing their big hearts once again. This year’s Race the River Dragon Boat Regatta organizing committee recently presented the Campbell River Hospital Foundation with a donation totalling more than $2,100. The funds were raised through a salmon barbecue by Marine Harvest, the Carnation Ceremony portion of this summer’s regatta as well as through event proceeds donated by Glen’s Kettle Korn. The carnations were donated by Quality Foods. The money will help the Hospital Foundation purchase a Continuous Ambulatory Delivery Device Pump for cancer care at the Campbell River hospital. The pumps are used in palliative care to deliver pain medications. They slowly release medication at a controlled rate. They also give the patient the opportunity to control their pain medication at the push of a button. The pumps are also instrumental in allowing patients to stay home longer. Race the River was introduced to Campbell River in 2010 by the BraveHearts and River Spirit Dragon Boat Teams. The event takes place in the estuary at Dick Murphy Park during the Canada Day weekend. The dragon boaters have been instrumental in a few key acquisitions at Campbell River hospital over the past few months. Last month River Spirit donated $1,000 towards the purchase of high definition digital mammography monitors for the medical imaging department at the hospital. The team also created pillows for breast surgery patients at Campbell River hospital and squeeze balls for rehabilitation.

HOROSCOPES September 15 - 21
Stress dominates a good part of your week. You must take the time to rest; otherwise your health will start sending you some signals to slow down.
Even if you have a tight schedule and many professional and family responsibilities, take the time to unwind by visiting some old friends.
If your relationship with the one you love has been neglected for some time because of your work, you may want to think about planning a nice romantic trip. It could help you both rediscover the happiness you knew together.
This seems to be an emotional time for you, or you find yourself in a situation that really moves you. One of your children will have some success, even if it’s only to take his or her first steps.
You weigh the pros and cons very carefully before coming to a decision. Even if you have all the necessary information, it’s your intuition that will help you find the solution.
You have lots of work this week as well as plenty of details to manage. You may also come to an agreement or settle litigation, which will be very profitable for you.
You are well known for your highly developed sense of esthetics. You do honour to this reputation by updating your wardrobe at little cost.
You devote a lot of time to your family or your home. You could also invest some time in an ongoing and very enjoyable activity with your family.
You have plenty to say, even if you risk being misunderstood sometimes. After you speak out, try to set an example in order to better make your point.
Some unexpected expenses may suddenly arise. You manage to successfully negotiate a loan from your financial institution so that you won’t have to tighten your belt too much.
Action is on the agenda. You accomplish something that is sure to get people talking. You can expect a nice pay raise at work.
Think carefully before embarking on any type of project. You tend not to consult people, even when your decision involves another person.

They say memories are golden, well maybe that is true, We never wanted memories, we only wanted you. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still, In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill. If tears could build a stairway and heartache make a lane, Weâ€™d walk to the ends of the earth to bring you back again. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, But as time calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

#6-1040 9th Ave., Campbell River BC 250-287-2240 Condolences may be left for the family at: www.campbellriverfunerals.com
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Elsie, beloved mother, to Colleen (Burke), Robert (Michyo), Gayle (Archie) and Thomas (Diana), grandmother to Nicole Gauthier, Thane Bonar, Courtenay Verbrugge, Lane McGarrity and Ellie Bonar and great-grandmother to Allison and Curtis Gauthier. Elsie was predeceased by Frank her husband of 59 years and a daughter Glenis Anne and grandsons Davor Bonar and Cole Spenser. Elsie was born a prairie girl in Regina, Sask. The family relocated to Vancouver, BC where she attended school and spent her formative years. She met and later married the love of her life Frank during the war years, after which they moved to Parksville on Vancouver Island. Thus began a long association and career with MacMillan and Bloedel, moving later to Camp 5 (Campbell River area), Menzies Bay, Campbell River and Squamish, finally retiring and moving to South Surrey and the summer retreat at Birch Bay, Washington. Elsie was a full time mom. In her spare time she excelled in many sports including golf, bowling and curling. She loved having family and friends over and many happy hours were spent entertaining at home and at Birch Bay. A stroke victim in 2002 she was told she would never leave the hospital. In spite of this she recovered and continued an active and independent life. She made many friends and acquaintances in the post stroke community, and was an inspiration to all. She always counted good times ahead of personal and family tragedies and never complained. She was a wonderful wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother and will be sadly missed. There will be no service, by request. A private family gathering was held to celebrate her life.

Carihi boys defend soccer title at early season tourney Carihi boys began their defence of the Senior Boys AA High School Island Championship with a very encouraging trip to Victoria last weekend. In game one, the boys played “AAA” Claremont and in a highly enjoyable and competitive game, the Tyees came out with a 3-2 victory. The opening goal was scored after Taylor Arbour found Kevin Shelswell with a quick pass. Shelswell attacked the space in front of him at pace, went by the defender and calmly slotted the ball past the keeper. Shelswell was to score his second ten minutes later when an excellent pass from Alex Foge at the top of the 18 yard box enabled Shelswell to turn and drive a fierce shot that was too much for the keeper. Claremont, which used the game as a try out, continued to rotate its 23 players and fought back well in the second half to draw the scores level. Arbour was to secure the victory in the 76th minute when a lofted free kick was somewhat fumbled by the unfortunate keeper. Overall an excellent game where the defensive partnership of Anthony Vigneron and Aiden Anderson continued to blossom. Full backs Tyler Kelly, Carter Colblenz, Alexandre Desrochers and Dylan Sparling performed in fine fashion and got forward whenever they could. In the second game the Tyees took on “AAA” Stelly’s who had lost most of their squad to graduation last season. The game saw a comfortable 3-0 victory for Carihi. The game opener was scored by the industrious and speedy Zach Tillapaugh. After some sharp passing leading up to the goal, Tillapaugh received the ball about ten yards out and hit the ball with the outside of his right foot which proved too much for the keeper to handle. The rotating midfield of Arbour, Foge, Shelswell, Karson Kroetsch, Greg Robertson, Jason Fawkes
and Connor Fairweather worked in tireless fashion and continued to help create numerous chances. The second saw another goal by Shels-
well who ran in from the left with the ball, beating a defender and driving the ball past the keeper. The second half saw a courageous effort
for the Stelly’s team but only one more goal was added and that was from Carihi. A superb ball was sent down the line by full back Colblenz. Shelswell
made a superb angled run and chipped the onrushing keeper. The Tyees continued North Island League play with a home game versus
Timberline on Wednesday. On Friday, Carihi goes on the road with games against Kwalikum and Dover Bay. The Senior “B” team
who play in the same league will travel to Courtenay to play a double header against GP Vanier and Brooks of Powell River. TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

Atom Tyees off to an explosive start The magnificence of summer pleasantly transitioned last weekend, as dedicated parents walked out of the hot sun and in through the doors of the chilly Rod Brind’Amour Arena. Smiling kids were everywhere because it was officially hockey time again and excitement levels were high. Already the REHN Enterprises Atom A Tyees were taking shape, and exhibition games were beginning. “I’m very proud of all our young players,” said head coach Craig Idiens. “We have a lot of hockey talent in Campbell River.” The Tyees’ preseason began with game one of a double header against the Comox Valley Chiefs. Comox came out strong, and opened the scoring early at 14:17. A nice hard shot by Tyee winger Brian Majic tied things up at 5:31, but the Chiefs came right back to retake the lead. With 3:03 remaining in the first frame, smooth skating Ethan
Vaton streaked to the net and scored to tie things up. Centre Evan Billard then got his first of two, chipping one past the defence and shelving a breakaway goal to put the Tyees up 3-2 at the end of the first. Gritty right winger Jacob Thomas also netted two, and speedy Breydan Riecker scored a beauty. Smart defensive play in their own end, combined with solid goaltending by Marcus Shankar and Cameron Vaughan, allowed the Tyees to cruise to an 8-4 victory and first home win of the season. The next day, the team travelled to Comox for a rematch. Once again the Chiefs scored first, and the game quickly turned into a defensive battle. New to the Tyee defence, Cameron Stover played a solid game in front of his net minder. Also on defence, Ian Mills battled hard in the corners, and Wyatt Dumont did a stellar job
clearing the zone. It was a low scoring affair with 20 minutes in penalties issued. Tyee winger Nolan Wyatt made some nifty moves, and battled for both goals as the Tyees and Chiefs finished in a 2-2 tie. For the third and final matchup, the Tyees travelled to Port Alberni to face the Bulldogs. The off season rust was gone, as all three defence lines moved the puck very well, and all offensive lines produced goals. Playmaker Bryce Idiens set up Riecker three times for the hat trick, with Billard, Wyatt (2), and Majic (2), rounding out the scoring. The Tyees went on to win 8-3. Torrential rain and lightening strikes in the Port Alberni area caused a power outage inside the arena just minutes after the completion of the game, an electric way to finish up a solid weekend of Tyee hockey. Division tiering begins in two weeks.

Rugby men go 4-0 at tourney
Nine members of the U18 men’s rugby team from Campbell River/ Comox travelled to Shawnigan Lake School last Sunday for the Vancouver Island Rugby Union 7s tournament. “The lads had not played 7s together so there was some apprehension in the first game against Velox Vallhalians from Victoria,” said coach Darren Munro. “But after a slow start
the boys started to gel and came away with a 17-5 win.” In the second game the boys played the defending Vancouver Island U18 champion Castaway-Wanderers, also from Victoria. The boys were in a dogfight with the more experienced Castaways when, with time winding down, team captain Trevor Caton made a break through the line

win. The fourth and final game was against the upstart Langford team and it was really no contest as the Langford kids never really had possession and the local lads blanked Langford 28-0.

and at the last moment, before being tackled, offloaded the ball to Foster Dewitt who ran in for the try to tie the game at 19-19. On the ensuing convert, Foster dropped kicked the ball through the uprights for the extra two points for an impressive 21-19 win. The next game saw the boys play their rivals from Nanaimo and they came away with a 29-7
