Commemorative bike rack stolen Pirjo Raits

Sooke News Mirror

In 1864 gold was discovered along a tributary of the Sooke River and the rush was on. The tributary was named the Leech River after the man who discovered the gold, Lt. Peter Leech, and it became the site of Leechtown, a community of more than 3,000 gold hungry souls. The gold rush was short lived but it had a tremendous impact on the area. The bonanza changed from gold to timber with the Kapoor Logging Company flourishing in the early part of the century in the area of Leechtown. Eventually Leechtown and the road between Victoria became part of the Galloping Goose Regional Trail encompassing 54 kilometers. The legacy of the pioneers who toiled for

The stolen bike rack, in the shape of a placer miner, was stolen and placer mining association is incensed and want it returned. gold was commemorated in September with a bike rack fashioned to look like a placer miner panning for gold. The bike rack was placed at Kapoor Regional Park

close to the Sooke Potholes Regional Park. It is valued at $5,000 and was funded through TD Bank. At some point it was discovered that the

placer miner bike rack was cut off and stolen from the Kapoor site. This has the Vancouver Island Placer Miners’ Association distraught. “It was cut from the

foundation and stolen, we are incensed,” said Dr. Patrick Lydon. Lydon is a member of VIPMA and he is offering a $5,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the culprit(s) who stole the bike rack. The reason for the distress is that the Kapoor site is where the association wants to hold their 150th anniversary celebration of Leechtown in July 2014. Also at issue is the fact that an older commemorative plaque was stolen and the cairn was vandalized in the past. The cairn was repaired but the plaque has never been recovered and the association still hopes it will turn up

Dogs go for unexpected joy ride One adult male in custody for stealing a vehicle from the Victoria General Hospital. On October 1, 2013 at approximately 10:37 a.m. the West Shore RCMP responded to a report of a stolen vehicle from the public parking lot at the Victoria General Hospital. The victim was in the hospital for less then one hour, when he came outside and realized his vehicle had been stolen. The victim left his two dogs in the vehicle and could only assume whomever stole his vehicle had taken his dogs too. A security guard working at the Victoria General Hospital stated a male had been released from the Emergency Depart-

ment around the same time the vehicle was stolen. The male asked the hospital staff for a ride to Sooke. The male subsequently left the hospital and was seen in the same area where the vehicle was stolen. The West Shore RCMP requested the Sooke RCMP be on the lookout for the stolen vehicle. At approximately 11:14 a.m., the Sooke RCMP were successful in locating the stolen vehicle. Both dogs were found inside the vehicle and were unharmed. One male has subsequently been arrested and is currently in custody. The male appeared in court on Wednesday, Oct. 2, facing the recommended charges of Theft and Possession of

Stolen Property. “I would like to remind the public to keep their vehicles locked and secured when left unattended. Please do not leave any valuables in your

vehicle, and think twice before leaving your dog unattended in your car or truck,” stated Cpl. Raj Sandhu of the West Shore RCMP.

somewhere. “The historical crossovers are surreal,” said Donna Chaytor, communication director for the VIPMA, “as the original cairn was vandalized and from it was stolen a brass plaque many years ago, of which we have looked for.” Lydon has spend the last 10 years writing a book, Gold Will Speak for Itself about the gold rush days at Leechtown. If anyone has any information on the stolen bike rack, contact the Crime Stoppers Tip Line….1-800-222-TIPS (8477), the VIPMA at email: vipma@shaw.ca, or CRD Regional Parks at 250-360-3332.

Owechemis: was a Nitinat Princess A princess, sacrificed to make peace between tribes – this is one tale explaining how Owechemis, or “Kitty” from the Nitinat People, came to be the wife of Aaron Denton White, who had arrived here and settled on Section 84 at the far reach of Sooke Basin in 1877. The union of the Britisher and a First Nations princess left a legacy of hundreds of descendants in our region and well beyond. It was Ida Jones, wife of Chief Queesto of the Pacheedaht people of Port Renfrew who gave us this account many years ago. She said “…. There was a war between Indians of different tribes .… a long time ago, Kitty’s father, the chief, he wanted to stop the war, he wanted to save the people of his village so he gave his daughter away ….. A very young girl, maybe 13 or 14, he held her up and showed her, a peace offering …… to stop the war …” While we’re not sure of all details of the path that led her to

Ministry of Public Works records show that in 1883 he had a contract to “build a sleigh road between the Vine property and Sooke” – this would be East Sooke Road.

“Sooke’s Real Estate Professional”

Sooke’s #1 Re/Max Real Estate Agent Since 1991

Necessity becomes the mother of invention Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

One of Sooke’s residents has invented a product designed to curb the spread of viral loads, thereby decreasing health risks and reducing costs for medical practitioners, from emergency responders to hospital staff. Al Wickheim, who grew up and still lives in Sooke, worked in partnership with Dr. Stephen Wheeler to invent a product called the STAL Shield and Stand. Visually, it looks like a splash guard on a gas nozzle. And it pretty much functions the same way, but instead of protecting the consumer from gas, it protects people in the medical profession from bodily fluids. Take for example the commonly-used Yankauer suction tip, which is an oral suctioning tool used in medical procedures to suction throat secretions in order to prevent the patient from choking. As described on the prodaptiveMedical.com website, “You never know what will come back at you when you introduce a Yankauer into a patients mouth. At the microbial level it does not matter whether you see a volumous spray or are just in the airstream of a ‘retching.’ The STAL stops expectorants at their source and redirects them away from the practitioner.”

A new piece of medical equipment has been introduced by inventor Al Wickheim. Wouldn’t a splash guard make sense? The immediate benefit of deflecting bacteria and viruses from landing on the medical staff is obvious. Less spread of infection, and fewer costs associated with illness management (additional sick days, extended medical attention, increased health complications, additional infections, etc.). Conceiving the idea was one thing. Coming up with the prototype was a bit more challenging. “It was a fairly complicated process,” said Wickheim. “It would have been much easier had I had the CAD (computer-aided design) program to do it. … This was costing us $1,000 every time he (the designer) was touching his keyboard.” A prototype of the

Beautifully Renovated Mobile Home

STAL shield was eventually created (it took a year), and then the marketing began. Again, through a lot of trial and error, Wickheim and his team identified the clients: Private ambulance services and the Vancouver Island Health Authority is where Prodaptive Medical Innovations is currently focussing their STAL Shield and Stand sales efforts. The biggest realization for Wickheim was that the end-user was not the buyer. “If we knew then what we know now, on hindsight I’d invest in our own CAD program. That would have sped things up remarkably. And I would have done more research on who is buying the products.” Finding the right price was a third challenge. What makes for an

inventor? Wickheim is used to seeing things from an alternative perspective. As posted on the About page of the prodaptive-

medical.com website, “Al spent a fair bit of time “underground’ as a spelunker on the Island in his youth - his prowess at acrobatics and ropework allowing, sometimes forcing, him into new and unexplored passages and territory.” “Recognize your limitations, and believe in your strengths,” Wickheim offers to other inventors. “And don’t give up.” What is next for this inventor? Besides marketing the STAL Shield and Stand, and running a resort and a hobby farm in partnership with his wife, Wickheim is currently contemplating designing high end picnic tables.

EDITORIAL CARTOON

Being thankful for what we have The question was asked in the streeter this week, “What are you thankful for?” Most people mentioned family and friends. That can be expanded to obviously include them but also to include the fact that we live in one of the best provinces and countries in the world. We are not faced with civil unrest and wars, starvation, drought or extreme poverty. Thanksgiving in Canada is not the same as it is in the U.S. Canadians don’t have the same history but we do have the same sense of thankfulness. Thanksgiving to us doesn’t mean the beginning of the Christmas shopping frenzy. It means giving thanks for the simpler things and appreciation for the lives we have. It is also a nice long weekend and an opportunity to get together with the people we care about. Because we are thankful, we often show it by donating to various charities and service-type organizations. But the question to be asked is, are you getting charity burnout? It seems every month there is a huge flurry of fund-raisers for everything from cancer research to the food bank. These are all good causes but to avoid being broke yourself you have to choose your charity. Those charities that have volunteers are the ones which need the most help. They don’t have highly paid executives, CAOs and fund-raising experts, they have people who want to help. It is absolutely mind blowing when you research where the donations go in many organizations. Often very little goes to the cause itself and too much to executive salaries and bonuses. When the dollars are tight, let’s make sure our donations are going to the cause not the machine itself. Charity and fund-raising has become an industry and a very lucrative one at that. Charity begins at home, and places like Sooke prove that we look after our own as much as we can. Happy Thanks and Giving.

ANOTHER VIEW

B.C. marijuana referendum misguided  B.C. Views

I won’t be signing the “Sensible B.C.” petition to demand a  provincewide  referendum on marijuana enforcement. You shouldn’t either, and here are a few reasons why. Let me start by saying I’ve been calling for legalization and regulation of pot for 20 years, to conserve police resources and reduce violent crime. Our war on drugs is a failure even for heroin and cocaine, and marijuana is obviously much easier to produce. But the current effort led by Dana Larsen, B.C.’s clown prince of pot, is not only misguided, it’s dangerous. The petition does not propose legalization. It seeks to impose a provincial law that would stop B.C. police from using any resources for simple possession charges. This would create a loophole in the federal drug law. So what would that do? It would protect otherwise innocent customers of the current illegal marijuana trade, while leaving the criminal distribution business in place. For a closer look at that, I recommend reports from the Surrey Six murder trial now underway, or the upcoming case against three accused assassins of Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon in Kelowna. Larsen’s loony law would tie police hands when they are trying to hold someone on a lesser charge while they search for evidence of

something nastier. This is a source of many simple possession charges today. Police chiefs have a different idea, asking for the option of treating simple possession as a ticket offence to keep the court time to a minimum. Both of these notions have the same obvious flaws. They don’t deal with sales to minors and they divert no revenue to government,  leaving most of that in the hands of criminal dealers who buy cocaine, guns and fancy cars. Colorado and Washington have gone the legalization route, so far without interference from their federal government. These states need money, and they don’t need more crime or ill-considered hippy gesture politics. Meanwhile in Ottawa, Health Canada is trying to convert a poorly regulated mess of small-scale medical marijuana licences to a free-market system of commercial producers. Local politicians tore a strip off Health Canada officials at their recent convention, after years of warnings that federal licences were scattered at unknown locations, often used as fronts for larger growops. Mission Coun. Dave Hensman predicted that when a grower gets a letter  cancelling  his licence, he’s more likely to roll up a big joint with it than to shut down. Burnaby Coun. Nick Volkow suggested the response would echo an old Cheech

and Chong routine: “Dave’s not here, man.” Here’s another reason not to support Larsen: the conduct of his organizers. One fellow set up a petition table at, of all places, the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam. After scrawling “pot cures cancer” on the table, he proceeded to interrupt speeches by cancer survivors and the run itself by yelling the same false slogan. You can imagine how people with terminal cancer and their loved ones would react. Some would know that marijuana may alleviate side effects of chemotherapy, just as it can ease suffering for some multiple sclerosis patients. But the suggestion of a cure is as cruel as it is moronic. Larsen’s “cannibus” has been rolling around B.C., reaping uncritical media coverage. It even blundered into the recent Walk for Reconciliation in Vancouver, an event to mark the end of federal hearings into the effects of residential schools on aboriginal children. I wouldn’t support the Larsen bunch for anything, unless it involved them looking for jobs. Just say no.

We asked: What are you thankful for?

I’m thankful for a lot of things. I’m thankful for my family, the beautiful place I live in, and my friends and the support they give.

I’m thankful for having a wonderful family, all inclusive.

Alanah Nasadyk Metchosin

Shell Douglas Sooke

Pizza man comes through I thought I would forward this to you, I know that our manager Cory Pawluk sent this letter to the Times Colonist, but as the Pizza restaurant referred to is in Sooke and probably a lot of the players are from there too.  We are very grateful to the assistance provided to our teams. As the manager of a local community football team, I would like to give you a head’s up on what transpired over the weekend. On Sunday September 29 the Langley Minor Football Association had two teams traveling to Victoria for week five of the regular season. During the second game, I was approached with the fact that the ferries were shut down for the night and we were not getting home. Jen Boyd, president for the Victoria Spartans Association, and her group of helpers were quick to book rooms for all 100+ of us. Not only did they jump to get this before the rooms could be snatched up but what happened next was above and beyond the call of duty. First, they told the hotel of the situation and they charged us probably half of a regular room fee. Here’s a kicker, Jen and group offered to split the remaining hotel cost with our association.

The whole family is healthy, including my 90-year-old grandma.

My healthy kids and my lovely family

“Your Sooke Specialist” Courtney Willson Sooke

letters Can you believe that? Next, as we were heading to the hotel we were informed that one of their coaches owns a local pizza shop and was going to supply us dinner. Lo and behold, an hour later here comes Jen and her helpers with roughly 80 pizzas and a slew of sodas for the boys. It doesn’t end there. A couple of our players do not eat meat and the only remaining slices of pizza had meat on them. What did they do? They drove all the way back to Sooke to get a vegetarian pizza just for them. Need I mention the reason the ferries were shut down was the incredible storm that was hitting the coast. Not one word of complaint came from them even once. When they arrived back with the second pizza run they must have over heard the conversation I was having with one of our players who happened to be celebrating his 18th birthday that day. These folks made sure it was not left unnoticed. Upon arrival there was a pack of candles, plates, forks, etc., enough to serve the two teams the five cakes they brought back with them. I had to share this story, there is no way we can leave this unnoticed and unprinted. In this day and age, stories of generosity are such a treat to read and

I hope you choose to print this story of great kindness and sacrifice. On behalf of Langley Minor Football, specifically the Bantam Mustangs and the Midget Stampeders, we want to publicly thank the Victoria Spartans Football Club, as well as their president Jen Boyd and all her amazing volunteers for taking such great care of us this past weekend. We hope to never have to replay the events, however, you know we would if the need was there. Thank you for being a class act. Fiona Miller Langley

Decide at the polling booth In your October 2, 2013 issue Stu James asks “where is our right to decide?” regarding what he claims is extortion by BC Hydro in charging fees for the higher cost of reading electric meters that don’t use radio signals to pass consumption data to the billing office. The answer is “in the polling booth at election time.” From James’ viewpoint, he is suffering from what is called “tyranny of the majority.” Voters decided decades ago to have a monopoly by the only way one can be achieved in a society with a justice

system – government force. Voters elect the administration of the monopoly, by electing officials who control BC Hydro including by hiring or firing its CEO. All legal in this society of excessive government power. Mr. James is free to develop and elect better candidates, as we have the right to free speech here. BC Hydro is trying to reduce costs and facilitate energy conservation. Their business case shows payback in costs of reading meters and increased revenue by stopping theft of electricity, but is conservative on the conservation impact as it is difficult to forecast people’s response to the better knowledge of own consumption that smart meters will provide. (I do judge BC Hydro to be stumbling fools in their communication about smart meters and their fee amounts – and the BC government has not been much better.) Mr. James seems to want to have his cake and eat it too. Note it wouldn’t be any better with a neo-Marxist government like B.C. had in the past. So he should hope for increased competition from alternative methods of supplying electricity which do exist, but so far are more costly and must be evaluated for effect on neighbours. Methods of generating one’s own

Scott Branch Sooke

power include a windmill, photovoltaic solar panels, fossil-fuel-fired methods such as heat exchangers, thermoelectric conversion, or combustion engines using natural gas or diesel fuel, and for some people water turbines. Perhaps neighbours could join together to buy and operate one of the emerging devices using radioactive decay thermo-electric. But first check for laws prohibiting sale of electricity by other than the monopoly. Perhaps in a narrow tower that could also support a cellular phone antenna to fill the many gaps in service – oh, wait! those emit radio signals close to the frequency of the smart meter signals James objects to.  Keith Sketchley Saanich

The cob oven will be used for pizzas for those who bring a pizza shell and toppings. CHI’s contribution will be the salmon, which had been set

What is the purpose of Thanksgiving? For Phoebe Dunbar, it’s about pressing the pause button in life, being with a community, and appreciating what one has. “It’s taking time out from busy weekends and busy schedules.” Dunbar, along with the available members of the Food CHI Society, will be hosting an ad hoc community potluck Thanksgiving dinner on Monday October 14. It starts at noon and runs until about 3:00 p.m, and

and entertainment might be on site. The event will be held rain-or-shine. Dunbar asks those who come to bring their own chairs, and to donate two dollars.

Have you struggled with prayer? Does prayer seem like an exercise in eloquent speech that you just don't possess? Prayer is not a mysterious practice reserved only for clergy and the religiously devout. Prayer is simply communicating with God—listening and talking to him. Believers can pray from the heart, freely, spontaneously, and in their own words. If prayer is a difficult area for you, learn some basics principles of prayer and how to apply them in your life. The Bible has a lot to say about prayer. The first mention of prayer is found in Genesis, chapter 4.   And as for Seth, to him also a son was born; and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the name of the LORD. (NKJV) Your prayers need not be wordy or impressive in speech.   Matthew 6:7 "When you pray, don't babble on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered only by repeating their words again and again."    Did you know that  Prayer Develops Our Relationship with God. If we never speak to our spouse or never listen to anything our spouse might have to say to us, our marriage relationship will quickly deteriorate. It is the same way with God. Prayer—communicating with God—helps us grow closer and more intimately connected with God. John 15:7 But if you stay joined to me and my words remain in you, you may ask any request you like, and it will be granted! One of the simplest reasons to spend time in prayer is because the Lord instructed us to pray. Obedience is a natural by-product of the believer.   Reverend R. Steele Sooke Baptist Church Rev R.

WHY: Windshield Wipers are easy to overlook until you find yourself in a pounding rainstorm. When: Check your washer fluid resevoir monthly and more often when you use the washers frequently. Top it up with a washer solution formulated to aid in the removal of insects and other debris, and during winter, be sure to use a solution with antifreeze protection. Finally, test the washer spray nozzles for proper operation and aim.

Other communtities also have sidewalk woes, as shown in this photo from Richmond, said Marlene Barry in her letter. tried to walk down the sidewalks here.  This shot is of a section of no sideway/sidewalk on Alderbridge Way, a main road. Richmond has a population of 200,000, was incorporated in 1879 and has a full time works crew. We would benefit from cutting some slack in Sooke with a population of just over 10,000 and incorporation date of 1999 and no public works crew.  Sidewalks are an important priority to identify and work on when the opportunity arises.  Looking at the state of sidewalks here makes me realize that they are an on-going process and always will be.  Here there are sections of lovely lock-brick sections that have sunk and paved sections that have been dug up

or heaved up by roots. Together with miles of sidewalk in great condition. In a perfect world we would all have great sidewalks. I look forward to bring information home from the conference around the changing dynamics of volunteering and how we in the Sooke region can grow with these changes.  Statistically volunteerism is continuing to rise, it’s only the way in which volunteers connect and engage that is changing.  If any one would like more information on volunteering in the Sooke region please check out the community based website www.sookeregionresources.com, email us at volunteersooke@ gmail.com or call 250208-7520 Marlene Barry,

Homemade baked goods — including snacks for dogs — were made by store employees and their families, and the funds went towards breast cancer research. Over $900 was raised. “Thanks to the generosity of the Sooke residents,” writes Laurie Attard of Western Foods. Above, Laurie Attard and Buz Merriam tend to the bake sale booth.

hining a light on the inmates at William Head Prison has nothing to do with surveillance and everything to do with creativity. During the month of October and into November the prison gates will be open to the public, who enter to enjoy William Head on Stage (WHoS). For the past 30 years inmates have been staging productions for the public. They choose the plays, build the sets, manage tickets, sew costumes and perform in the show. This year’s production involves 50 hand-built puppets, 27 prisoners and pure madness. It is an intense collage of stories where animals and humans reveal themselves through humor, darkness and love. The Prison Puppet Project features 13 fables based on stories written by the inmates. The fables have titles such as The Seal Boy, The Envious Man, and Birds of a Feather. They have even formed their own band and play what they call incarcerated bluegrass funk. This year WHoS joined forces with

For the William Head show Kadoski wrote the score with the help of four inmates. “They all play instruments,” said Kadoski. “We are an acoustic orchestra that sonically underscores the entire show.” She said they have adapted traditional pieces and have even written an overture. Going into prison and working with inmates can be a rather scary experience, but it isn’t for Kadoski. She said she was more afraid of the guards than the prisoners because they can be “robotic” as befitting their job, but the inmates are working on a creative level and it gives them an opportunity to shine a light. “It’s a real gift to work with these people in this way,” she said. “It’s very therapeutic.” She said the joy is in finding those hidden gems of talent. “One guy learned

to play guitar in four months, he’s amazing and growing in leaps and bounds. He’s so excited every day and it is so infectious to see the enthusiasm every day.” The prisoners are as enthused as the outsiders. “Going through prison… there are many messages we get put into our heads that you are inhuman… The process slowly chips away at you. I didn’t realize how deep it went until I was exposed to the community. Oh yes, this is what not is like to be treated like a person… we need normal human contact without an agenda,” said one inmate. Public performances of The Prison Puppet Project begin on October 11. Anyone can buy a ticket, although you must be 19-years-of-age to enter the prison. The performances run Friday and Saturday all through October and on the first two weekends of November. Seating is limited and the November dates always sell out.

Fastpitch Hall-of-Famer hails from Sooke Media-friendly SEAPARC Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

Two years after hanging up his glove, Sookeraised softball pitcher received a pleasantly surprising letter in the mail, inducting him into the Softball BC Hall of Fame. Sooke’s native and former softball pitcher Rick Smith was inducted as a recognized athlete at the Softball BC Awards Banquet that took place in Richmond on October 5 as a part of the annual general meeting and convention. “Your contribution to our sport has left a rich legacy and it is entirely appropriate that your accomplishments be rewarded and recognized,” writes Rick Benson, the Chief Operating Officer of Softball BC in the letter informing Smith of the news. Smith was quite excited to receive the news, as he had retired from fast pitch softball two years ago. “It’s an honour being recognized,” said Smith. “I guess people do recognize your accomplishments, and it’s nice getting nominated for it. … It’s humbling.” Smith played the sport for over 20 years and participated in four national championships, and played on Team Canada from 2000-2007. It’s a hectic schedule, playing on a professional level.

Rick Smith pitching for the Vancouver Grey Soxs, from 2004 to 2008. “After 20 years of travelling all over the place,” explained Smith, “you’re pretty much gone Thursday night or Friday morning and you get back Sunday night or Monday morning. And that starts usually in May and goes until Labour Day. The family takes a lot of sacrificing.” It was time for Smith to close one chapter in his life and move on to the next. “Now it’s time to give back to the kids and give back to my wife and … be around for them.” Smith is enjoying his time with his wife and three children

aged 13, 10 and two. Camping and fishing with his family now fill the weekends. Smith is not done entirely with softball though. Recently he participated in an OldTimer’s game, where he enjoyed the stories on the bench, and “being the young guy again.” Smith attended John Muir elementary school and played minor baseball in Sooke until he was 13 or 14, at which point he went out to Cordova Bay. His parents still live, and champion his success. Smith was inspired by his father, who was a ball player as well.

His advice for today’s youth is to stay active. “There’s so many choices now a days, iPhones and XBoxes and Playstations. When we were younger growing up, we were outside every day, running around the bush, playing in swamps, playing road hockey and playing baseball and everything.” Parents play an influential role. “It starts with the parents for the most part,” Smith maintains. “If you’re active in sports — whether it’s softball, soccer or hockey — I think it starts with the parents.” Reflecting on his own children, Smith anticipates it will be his 22-month-old who will most likely follow his footsteps into softball. Still on the Island, Smith currently lives with his family in Crofton B.C. “Softball BC is the official governing body of softball in the province of British Columbia,” states the softball. bc.ca website. “The provincial office is located in Surrey, BC at Softball City, a facility wholly owned and operated by our membership.” Based on the information on their website, the only other Sooke residents included in the Hall of Fame include Mr. Finn Kennedy in 1993 (50 Year Club).

Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

After more than two decades with the Capital Regional District (CRD), Larry Hutchings, the now-former SEAPARC manager, has left the building and shut the SEAPARC door behind him. That’s correct. Hutchings has retired. Originally from Newfoundland, Hutchings settled on Vancouver Island with his wife Valerie and his two children, Lauren and Grant. He and his family have lived in Sooke, Metchosin, and most recently, Victoria. Hutchings worked with the CRD for 22 years, beginning on October 1, 1991 and retiring on October 1, 2013. When Hutchings began at SEAPARC in 1993, the only facility on site was the arena. The Sooke Arena was originally built before his time, in 1976. Hutchings oversaw the growth of many sports and leisure venues in Sooke, including the creation and development of the Stan Jones Field, the bike jump park, the SK8 park, the swimming pool, the SEAPARC logo, the arena boards and glass/snow melt system, and the arena change room expansion. In addition to his work in (and for) Sooke, Hutchings was also very

active in the community with Sooke Minor Hockey, Sooke Slo Pitch, and the Rotary auction to mention a few. He was also a long standing member of the Sooke Rotary Club. Hutchings was a supporter of the media covering local events. Back in December 2005, Dan Ross, a former Sooke News Mirror editor, was escorted from the arena by the RCMP. The problem? Ross assumed it was because the team owner and manager of the newly founded Stingers, a junior “B” division hockey team, did not like the sports coverage that followed his hockey teams’ 21 consecutive game losses. In response, Hutchings expressed his support for media coverage. “We have never barred the media from the facility. We like to have them here. We don’t share the opinion that the renter can pick or choose the patrons,” Hutchings said at the time about the incident. According to Linda Finch, the acting manager at SEAPARC, “Larry recently mentioned that he looks forward to one day becoming a grandfather and bringing his grandchildren to SEAPARC to go swimming and skating.” With notes from Linda Finch, a/manager, SEAPARC

Sooke players played like giants in Spartan’s game against Outlaws Sundays game at Copley Field against the Victoria Outlaws saw a final score of Spartans 33 Outlaws 29. Since October is Support Breast Cancer Research month in football all over North America, all the players wore stylish pink socks. With week four in the books, this was a sunny fall day, perfect for football. In his first play, local quarterback Jared “man of” Steele handed off the ball for a reverse to Will “the animal” Gorchounov.  Gorchounov quickly ran 55 yards setting up Jared’s first touchdown of the season. Then defence, led by Spencer “the tank” Logan and AvAn”pitbull” Wickheim, stopped those wily Outlaws in their tracks. Second possession saw first play with an errant snap by Caleb “budder” Carrier. Then Will got his fourth touchdown of this campaign. Hunter “fantastic” Swift caught his first kick-off  and ran the ball 23 yards, setting the team up in a good field position. He ran and blocked the rest of the game with speed and skill. A little sloppy play on defence and a few more errant snaps by Carrier got the second half going. Sooke was  leading by 12 points — that’s when the fun began. Spencer Logan  ran 45 yards along the sidelines breaking three to four tackles, and he scored his league-leading fifth touchdown. Then Will “the animal” did the same play along the same sidelines after receiving a 20 yard bullet like spiral pass from Jared “hands of” Steele which he   threw while on the run from four Outlaws  galloping to get him!

Followed by a little more sloppy defence and offence, the Outlaws were closing the gap in scoringout comes. Jared with a bad snap scooped up the ball and proceeded to run zigzagging his way upfield himself breaking at  least five  serious tackles for his second touchdown of the game. Not only that, he kicked a two-point convert on his own touchdown. Late in the game with Sooke leading by six points, Coach Andy proposed a risky play that didn’t  work, and the Sooke quarterback

was tackled in the Sooke end-zone, giving up a two-point safety. This meant Sooke had to kick and perhaps lose the game. This is when it gets interesting and all the Sooke players measured up to be giants of men: they did not give up. Steele punted the ball to the 30-yard line. Their first play on offence, Carrier lead a double team tackle  with Jared, and stopped them in their tracks. In the next two plays, Jared and Spencer sacked the quarterback twice. Sooke won the game, 33-29.

Bantam girls win strong against JDF

Sooke’s Bantam girls played their fourth exhibition on October 6 at the Bear Mountain arena against Juan de Fuca. They showed up in very great spirit and ready to play. They scored early in the game. A nice shot from Rory Wood put the girls on the board. Then, four minutes later, Olivia Carelo added to the advance for Sooke, and Alyssa Lloyd ended the first period with the third goals. In the second period, a nice play from Kaylee Peaker in front of the JDF’s goalie gave a great opening for Jennifer Simonis to do a nice slap shot and score the fourth goalie for the Sooke Thunderbirds. Defence holding by Alison Sudlow, Haley Olejnik, Victoria Sutherland and Lilia Egeland very efficiently stopping every attack from JDF in their zone. In the third, period, Alyssa Lloyd put her second and third goal of the night (and a hat trick) with the help of Morgan Couture (two assists). Great play in the offensive zone from Kaitlin McKelvey, Desiree Cumming, Celina Palko and Chevy Alexander put lot of pressure on the opposite team. Goalie Michele Lacombe can put her first shootout of the season in her pocket. It was a very good game, and coach Stephen Simonis led his team very well. Submitted by Melanie Dube

can go to the chickens or in the compost. Cook the peels and cores and drain the juice into sterilized jars. Seal and water bath in boiling water for 20 minutes. Here is your apple juice or if you like you can follow the recipe on the certo packets and make apple jelly. The peels are very high in pectin so you can also make the jelly by adding juice of one lemon to 6 cups juice and 4 cups sugar and boil until a drop of jelly dropped on a cold plate from the fridge gels. Slice the apples into a bucket half-filled with cold water and 2 tsps. salt. The salt keeps the apples from turning brown. Drain the apples and either bag and freeze for a later date or make apple sauce.

These apples can be turned into apple pie, brown apple betty, apple crisp and many more desserts. Favorite apple crisp Place apples in a deep dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Make a crust with 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup oatmeal and 1/3 cup flour. Mix together well and spread over apples. Bake at 350’F for 1 hour. Serve as is or with a little cream. If you have too many apples, clean and bag them and take them to the Sooke Food Bank at the Sooke Community Hall, (250642-7666) Meals on Wheels, (250642-2184) or Vital Vittles at Holy Trinity (250-642-3172).

Seniors’ drop-in centre has long history in Sooke

Wednesday, Wednesday, OctOber October 9, 9, 2013 2013 -- SOOKE SOOKE NEWS NEWS MIRROR MIRROR

12 • www.sookenewsmirror.com B12 • www.sookenewsmirror.com 

Some form of dropin centre for seniors has been taking place in the Sooke area since the mid 40’s. As the Sooke community grew a need developed to assist with seniors’ care and activities in a more formal way. In 1945, Emily Nixon came to Sooke and shortly thereafter formed the Mothers Union in the Anglican Church. She was also recognized as the initiator of Sooke’s Over 60’s Club, the forerunner of the Old Age Pensioners (OAPO) organizations that followed. Members of the OAPO Branch #88 were instrumental, with Phyllis Johnson deser ving special mention, in setting up the Sooke Elderly Citizens Housing Society and the Contact

Community Assistance Society (Loan Cupboard & Contact drivers). In about 1969 Margaret Simpson moved to Sooke, joined the OAPO #88 and started driving for Contact. By 1975 Margaret was doing the cooking and clean up after three-course meals on Thursdays and sandwich meals on Tuesdays, taking up the banner from Margaret Money who cooked throughout the 60’s & early 70’s. Faith Jacobson also deserve special mention for her efforts through the 1980’s. Many people contributed to the successes that were to become the Sooke Seniors’ Drop-in Centre. Margaret continued doing this for 25 years, with the help of many others in the

Seniors Organization, Branch #88. The New Horizons Activity Society was formed in the 1980’s which later became the Sooke Seniors Activity Society (SASS). SSAS raised funds to purchase

and operate a bus to assist with seniors’ transpor tation to events and shopping excursions. A smaller group kept the New Horizons name to become the New Horizons Contract Bridge Club. The Sooke Senior Drop-in Centre Society was established in 2003 “to provide a facility for seniors over 50 years of age to have the opportunity of visiting with both new and old friends, playing games, reading, knitting or just relaxing in comfortable surroundings.” Membership is open to any person having reached the age of 50 years and who has residence in British Columbia. In 2010 the society was given notice to move as the building

that housed the dropin centre was being sold. With no suitable space available at that time, the Sooke Volunteer Firefighters Association offered the temporary use of their lounge until a more permanent home could be found. SSDIC and partnering seniorsbased organizations are tremendously grateful to the firefighters for their generosity and support. That temporary arrangement lasted until July, 2013 when they were again asked to vacate so the firefighters could renovate the space in celebration of their 100th anniversary. No larger, more suitable space being available, the dropin centre moved back into the dining room of the Sooke

Community Hall, from whence they started. The Sooke Meals on Wheels Society utilizes the space Monday, Wednesday and Friday, leaving only Tuesdays and Thursdays for inexpensive lunches, socialization and BINGO. The Sooke Senior Drop-in Centre have created a ‘visioning’ document as a base to begin discussions, make connections and develop partnerships to work towards meeting the needs of our communities, whether this is a standalone, single capacity space, shared functionality, or a multiuse Community Centre with a range of colocated organizations working in partnership to support a variety of community needs.

The Interactive Open House saw lots of community interest in the Army Cadet Program in Esquimalt, with the Corps cadets talking to possible new recruits (and their families) about the marksmanship program; the Corps band; orienteering; local, regional and national expeditions; as well as what the overall Canadian Cadet Movement is all about. Cadets is all about teaching our youth to become better citizens and leaders of the future; promoting physical fitness; and instilling an interest in the Canadian Armed Forces. Cadets is a nonprofit, Department of National Defence sponsored, youth organization for people between 12 and 18 years of age. The Canadian Cadet Movement is always looking for new Cadets and adults who are interested in becoming a Cadet Instructor Cadre Officer supporting this great program. As well, there are no mandatory fees attached to being an Army Cadet and these youth can also earn high school credits for various aspects of the Cadet program. 2483 PPCLI RCACC parades Tuesday evenings from 6:20 p.m. to 9:10 p.m. in the Nixon Gym at Work Point Barracks, with its headquarters, administration and supply located at 455 Head Street, in Esquimalt. If your child is interested in joining, come down on any Tuesday evening and the Commanding Officer and Corps staff will show you why this is the best youth program in Canada.

You know your child best. You know your child’s favourite doll and every other precious detail of their life. But there’s one thing you can’t know: how well they see.

Many kids’ vision problems don’t have obvious symptoms. An eye exam by a Doctor of Optometry can assess the quality of a child’s vision and their overall eye health. Book an eye exam with a Doctor of Optometry today.
