Torry slides into receivership Service disruption to clients not anticipated; former employees scrambling to find work Erin Haluschak Record Staff

A major employer in the Comox Valley has closed its doors, but those in the plumbing and heating industry say they don’t see

any disruption in service for clients. Torry and Sons Plumbing & Heating went into receivership around mid-September, and those working for the family-run business are now left to find other

Piece of Nobel Prize for Comox woman Erin Haluschak Record Staff

Comox doctor Lui Carvalho is used to early-morning phone calls as part of his practice, but the call he received Friday was unlike any other. The 2:30 a.m. call was from his daughter, Louise Carvalho, with news her company — the Organisation of the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) — received the Nobel Peace Prize. “I have a bad habit of keeping the phone by my bed,” admitted Carvalho. “But that was quite an exciting call. It really came out of the blue; it was a magnificent day.” Louise is the legal officer for OPCW, an organization recognized for its extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons, and to act as a guardian of the global ban on chemical weapons, which took effect in 1997. Carvalho explained he and his wife received the news from their daughter, who attended Village Park, École Robb Road and Highland schools, and watched the announcement simultaneously — albeit across the world from each other — on the BBC.

LIMITED TIME ONLY

“We kept getting phone and e-mails all day Friday and Saturday. Many were from her friends she went to school with, which was really wonderful of them,” noted Carvalho. Following her graduation from Highland, Louise attended the University of British Columbia and received her arts degree, then attended law school in Calgary. She returned to Vancouver Island to article with the attorney general in Victoria before working in London and then received a United Nations appointment in Kosovo. Carvalho explained his daughter worked in the country for more than eight years, and two years ago she decided she needed a change and began work with OPCW in The Hague in the Netherlands. The OPCW, which has been working for more than 16 years to eliminate chemical weapons, said in a statement the Peace Prize will spur the organization to untiring effort, even stronger commitment and greater dedication to realize the vision of a world free of the weapons.

employment. “They decided to call it quits about a week ago,” said Brian Findlay, president of Andrew Sheret Limited, a B.C.-based plumbing and heating supply company. “Personally, we’re sorry to lose them … but we’re optimistic about the plumbing and heating industry in the North Island.” Calls to the company were not returned to the Record. In 1981, Bill Torry established Torry and Sons Plumbing & Heating, with a larger team expanding the heating department in the 1990s. The company opened a sheet metal shop under the name of VI Mechanical, allowing the various facets of their business — plumbing, heating and sheet metal fabrication — to work together. In the 2000s, Torry and Sons and VI Mechanical merged into one company, while acquiring a fire-protection business. In 2006, ownership of the company changed to Scott Torry and Brian Farnham. According to their website, the company employed more than 150 people on Vancouver Island, and had two offices — one in Courtenay and one in Nanaimo. Findlay explained he has seen the various ups and downs of the industry, but added some former employees have decided to go out on their own and start their own businesses. “(The closing) doesn’t change our business plans, but the one thing with the plumbing industry is that things can’t be left too long. When someone runs out of hot water, they want a hot water tank really quickly. “(Torry and Sons) were definitely part of the industry, but I don’t see any disruption in the Comox Valley.”

Keeping Cumberland a Village in the Forest Record Staff

The Cumberland Community Forest Society (CCFS) recently launched a huge fundraising campaign to ensure Cumberland remains a “village in the forest.” The CCFS’ goal is to raise $1.2 million over the next two years and use that money to purchase three parcels — adding to an additional 50 hectares — of forested land surrounding Cumberland. “The reason we have an end date is there are forest management plans for all of these parcels, and so these parcels currently have schedules for logging in 2015 and 2016,” says CCFS media liaison Meaghan Cursons. “So, our timeline is completely connected to the forestry plans for the pieces we’d like to protect.” The CCFS has raised $1.2 million and bought 71 hectares of land to the southwest of the village since 2000. These new parcels border the existing Cumberland Community Forest and Coal Creek Historic Park. One parcel is located east of the community forest at the bottom of Sutton Road, and it contains some of the first mountain biking trails established in Cumberland. The second is located behind the historic Chinatown site and the third is just past #1 Japanese Town along Comox Lake Road. CCFS president Andrew Nicoll notes this purchase is important for many reasons, one being that the second-growth forest is important to the village’s viewscape, and would be very visible from Cumberland if logged. “There’s 300-year-old trees in there because when they originally logged it they didn’t take every-

thing and all the trees are mature so you have a closed canopy so you can see a long way through the forest,” adds Nicoll. Much of the forested land around Cumberland has been logged, he continues, especially noting the area north of the village, much of which has now been rezoned for development. “With these three parcels that we’re buying, that’s sort of like the remaining of the mature second-growth forest that’s close to the village, that’s in walking distance,” he continues. Meanwhile, Nicoll points out the various recreational activities, like mountain biking, and races such as the coming Perseverance Trail Run, boost Cumberland’s economy. “Even in terms of the economics, they’re (trees) worth more standing when you look at the long term, when you look out the next 50 years of the village,” he says. Nicoll cautions that while the CCFS has raised

the same amount of money in the past, and was able to purchase the existing community forest land, this time there’s a time crunch. “What we did in 10 years we have to do in two years,” he says. “But we do have the history and the credibility of the fact we pulled it off.” Cursons adds the best way to donate to the cause is to sign up as a monthly donor. “Monthly donors give us also the opportunity to leverage that kind of community commitment, and to reach out to larger funders and show that we have a demonstrated grassroots community commitment,” she explains. “So, we currently are bringing in close to $4,000 a month in monthly donors and we’d like to double that — before the New Year would be ideal.” She adds people are welcome to increase their monthly donation, too. The CCFS already has over $200,000 in the bank thanks to ongoing fund-

It continues to hold fundraisers like trivia nights, plant sales, and other events. The CCFS will soon launch new branding and a new website, and will produce merchandise like T-shirts and stickers to help raise funds. Cursons says the CCFS

is excited by the challenge to reach its fundraising goal. “The groundswell of support is so incredible, such a cross-section of our community, not just in Cumberland but beyond is behind this project,” she says. “Given that we’ve done it before — and that was before we had all of these

amazing tools that are at our hands, and all these online tools — we absolutely believe we’re going to do it again, and the community’s going to help us do it.” For more information or to make a donation, visit www.cumberlandforest.com or visit Cumberland Forest on Facebook.

ALMOST 100 PEOPLE were killed in an earthquake that hit the Philippines, where Courtenay Rotarian Donna Cloutier is volunteering.

Quake hits Philippines Scott Stanfield Record Staff

Comox Valley resident Donna Cloutier was at the epicentre of an earthquake that killed nearly 100 people in the Philippines. The 7.2-magnitude quake struck the island of Bohol in the central part of the country Tuesday morning. People were also killed in the province of Cebu.  Cloutier, an accountant at Pateman & Company in Courtenay, was not injured.

The Courtenay Rotarian has been volunteering with the non-profit Rotaplast International, which involves reconstructive surgeries. In the Philippines’ mission, Rotaplast volunteers had been performing cleft lip and palate surgeries. The earthquake damaged many roads and bridges, hampering rescue operations. A number of historic churches were also damaged. Cloutier was at a hospital where patients and volunteers were safely evacuated. Makeshift wards were set up in a vacant lot.

Did You Know... ICBC must pay for your massage therapy treatments? In December 2011, BC’s Court of Appeal upheld a decision that ICBC must pay for necessary massage therapy treatments when recommended by a doctor. The Court found that massage therapy met the two requirements of a mandatory benefit payable by ICBC under Part 7 of the Insurance (Motor Vehicle) Act Regulation. First, massage therapy fits within the definition of physical therapy, making it a mandatory benefit. Second, massage therapy was a necessary treatment because it had been recommended by the injured party’s doctor as part of recovery. This decision clarifies a previous inconsistency regarding whether massage therapy costs should be paid for by ICBC. To learn more go to www.awslaw.ca

We’ll make a proposal to them and they can tell us yes or no. “It’s just not acceptable to throw those people out of there,” Hamilton added. “If it’s a reasonable proposal, hopefully they accept it.” In a letter to the editor, Allen states: “It is the responsibility of Maple Pool representatives to determine what effect their own proposed work will have on the Tsolum River system, both on their property and on the adjacent properties, before any application for rezoning or an Official Community Plan amendment could be considered.”

Decision on home must wait

Supporters of Mack Laing’s ‘Baybrook’ house will have to wait a few weeks to see the result of a staff report to determine what options put forward to save the house might be viable. Wednesday afternoon, Loys Maingon of the Mack Laing Conservation Committee, presented Comox council a report presenting two options to keep the home standing. In June, the Comox Valley Naturalists Society and Project Watershed asked Comox council for a delay on the demolition of Mack Laing’s ‘Baybrook’ house, which is situated at 70 Orchard Park Dr., a 2.6-hectare piece of waterfront property. Mack Laing resided in his first Comox house, built in 1922, until 1949. It was there where he wrote scientific articles, more than 1,000 journal articles and 14 books. Council asked for an assessment to determine if the structures (including the main house) which, were in sufficiently poor condition, were worth saving. The report determined the cost of renovating and saving the building would exceed the cost of reconstruction, and the plan was to remove the struc-

The groups — known as the Mack Laing House Conservation Committee — enlisted a team of biologists, planners, engineers and historians to examine two homes: ‘Baybrook’ and ‘Shakesides.’ Maingon explained the report determined Shakesides is situated on a floodplain and is not salvageable, but “Baybrook is the only viable home.” He asked council for a stay on the demolition of ‘Baybrook’ and added Heritage BC expressed interest in contributing to the project and could qualify for funding if the request comes from the municipal heritage committee. Maingon presented two options from the conservation committee: a national parks-style postand-beam viewing cover with signage with an infilled basement (cost estimated between $75,000 to

$100,000) or a full restoration developing conservation tourism and education (cost estimated between $150,000 to $200,000). He suggested option two is a yearround indoor facility, which opens possibilities to develop conservation tourism while creating a link to the Strathcona Wilderness Institute Facility. It also includes security, controls local education expenses, offers direct revenue and is a regional revenue multiplier, Maingon added. ••• Maingon and fellow committee member Paul Horgen noted Sunday that 2013 Nobel Prize literature winner Alice Munro spent two winters in the Mack Laing home. Now, they argue, the site would not only attract the ecologically minded, but also literary- and historic-minded tourists. photos@comoxvalleyrecord. com

Over the next several months the regional district will develop a business case to analyze two service delivery models for managing operations at the Comox Valley Curling Club, as directed last week by the committee of the whole. The club is under a lease agreement with the CVRD and operates the facility on Headquarters Road. An alternate model considers renting ice time and the rest of the space, with the CVRD managing the facility. Directors also approved a recommendation to remove Denman and Hornby residents from the service. Further, a risk assessment and cost/ benefit analysis will be prepared to further consider engineering options. The sports centre commission will then consider a capital project for the curling rink in 2014—2018 financial planning discussions. “I believe this is the right thing to do,” said Area B director Jim Gillis, who foresees the facility producing future Olympic curlers. “It’s one of the biggest sports in Canada.” The club hosts the B.C. senior championships in February. Last month, district staff recommended an alternate approval process about a request from the club to borrow $1.8 million to renovate the rink, based on

a $100,000 contribution from the club. The building is plagued by a leaky roof and a failing ice plant. Concrete slab also needs to be replaced. Minimum repairs are estimated at about $683,000 while constructing a new building would exceed $10 million.

Things to do while you can Dying’s not the easiest subject to talk about, but there’s a 100-per-cent chance it’s going to happen to you. The Comox Valley Hospice Society is urging people in our community to begin embracing the topic by using Thanksgiving as a time to have an important discussion about our wishes for end-of- life care. “Imagine, one day, without any warning, you find yourself in a hospital in a lifethreatening situation, unable to communicate,” asks Audrey Craig, CVHS president. “Who would speak for you and make health care decisions on your behalf?” A March 2012 IpsosReid national poll found that 86 per cent of Canadians have not heard of  advance care planning,  a process of reflection and communication about personal care preferences. You can learn more about this gift of love for your family at two workshops offered at the Comox Valley Nursing Centre’s Gla-

If you love southern gospel music, you will enjoy Sweet Presence this Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at Comox Pentecostal Church. Sweet Presence is a full-time family-based group in the Pacific Northwest. Made up of Ernie, Dolly, Greg, and Corey, Sweet Presence travels in the United States and Canada sharing their message through southern gospel music. This group has sung on stage with the likes of Poet Voices, Carolina Boys, the Dixie Melody Boys, and many others. With over 35 years of travelling in southern gospel music, Sweet Presence offers a concert experience that appeals to young and old with songs like He Keeps On Blessing Me to God Walks The Dark Hills and Ring The Bells Of Heaven. “While listening, I would have been convinced Sweet Presence had to be from Kentucky, Indiana, Tennessee, or any of the southern states that I have previously associated southern gospel music with,” writes Guardian Magazine columnist Tracey Evison. “I have now had that particular bias straightened out quite thoroughly! “You do not have to be born and raised in the Deep South to sing southern gospel, as Sweet Presence proves with style!”    — Comox Pentecostal Church

The Comox Valley Horticultural Society welcomes guest speaker Dr. Linda A. Gilkeson on Oct. 21, presenting Don’t Panic! You Can Manage Garden Pests and Diseases Organically.

It will include recently introduced problems such as apple maggot, spotted wing Drosophila, daylily gall midge and garlic rust that have become widespread in the region. Linda earned a Ph.D. in Entomology from McGill University in 1986, then moved to British Columbia to work for Applied BioNomics Ltd, a company that produces biological controls. Linda was awarded a Queen’s Jubilee medal in 2003 and an outstanding achievement award from the Professional Pest Management Association of BC in 2005.

Hortons’ staff is so immensely appreciated. “The Boys and Girls Clubs have been known as the best kept secret – not any more. “Tim Hortons gave our staff the opportunity to come into their three locations, sell cookies and educate everyone on what we do and who we serve. These funds will help to support children and families in our community and that makes it all worthwhile. “We are already looking forward to next year with the addition of a fourth Tim Hortons at the corner of Ryan and Lerwick Roads that will be a double drive-thru!” The Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island is the largest licensed childcare provider on Vancouver Island that specializes in programs that support child and youth development. In the Comox Valley, they offer Before and After school care programs at Aspen Park Elementary and Brooklyn Elementary. In addition, they provide spring, summer

and winter day camps as well as facilitate a number of innovative

In 2007, researchers for the Lenfest Ocean Program at the Pew Charitable Trusts released an important ground-breaking report on the state of kelp forests and their ecological importance. The state of kelp forests has been shown to control water temperature, ocean productivity as well as the ability of oceans to absorb carbon dioxide and therefore even climate regulation. Shorebird and salmon productivity depend on bull kelp. As pointed out by Margaret Bowman, director of this program, “This study sounds an alarm to all those who love to walk on our beaches, fish in our oceans, eat seafood, or watch wildlife.” Comox Valley Nature will host a onehour slide lecture by Amanda Zielinski entitled Turning the Tide

Innovative athlete segments are actually a glimpse into his dreamscape, each one harbouring messages that help inform our hero’s current, real-life choices. As you experience the majesty of Alaska, Bolivia, the Himalaya and beyond, Into the Mind paints a philosophical portrait of human kind.  How do we balance risk versus reward?  Why are we inspired to rise to the challenges in our lives and what do we learn on this journey to attain them? Two showings will take place on the 17th: an all-ages show at 5:30 p.m. and a 19+ show at 8. Tickets are available at Dodge City Cycles in Cumberland and at Valhalla Pure Outfitters in Courtenay. All proceeds from the show will go to the Cumberland Community Forest Society and the Vancouver Island Avalanche Centre Society.  For more information, check out www.

A group of Comox Valley cyclists was touring along the Mosel River though Germany and France earlier this month. With about 40 to 50 kilometres a day, they cycled in one direction to meet up with their comfortable barge at a different location each afternoon. A similar tour is organized for August next year, leaving Amsterdam and cycling easy special bike lanes that are so common in Europe to the historic town of Bruges in Belgium. It is hard to find a better way to travel the countryside. While you are calmly pedalling along, exploring new areas every day and having your luggage and meals on a barge, your floating hotel follows you. This means no lugging of luggage and while you make your own packed lunch, a hearty breakfast and a delicious dinner are prepared for you each day. Most barges have  around 12 spacious cabins, each with private  shower and toilet. The upper deck has a large area for casually taking in the scenery and the large comfortable salon and bar area is where your breakfast and threecourse evening meal is served. After dinner there is a briefing about next day’s tour which is always a carefully selected route that will lead you along the most beautiful spots of the country. The average daily distance is around 45 kilometres, taking you through many picturesque villages and towns in Holland and beautiful medieval and gothic towns in Belgium. Overnight stops will be in the renowned towns of Gouda; Dordrecht, the oldest town in Holland with city-rights; Zierikzee, like an openair museum; Vlissingen, an historic marine centre; the beautiful town of Ghent in Belgium; and last but not least, medieval Bruges, a town straight out of a storybook. Day Four is special as the tour will visit the Delta Works, considered one of the seven wonders of the modern world. — Marianne and Leo Buijs

Science class at school is about to get an upgrade. Through the Scientists and Innovators in the Schools (SIS) program administered by Science World, students will have an opportunity to learn from real-world scientists and benefit from their first-hand knowledge of science and technology. These scientists will interact with the students and share their advanced knowledge of their field at no cost to the school. Dr. Gregory Arkos, who has a background in physics, will visit École Robb Road this Friday at 10:32 a.m. “Schools from all over the province are benefiting greatly from our SIS program,” says Friderike Moon, Science World program specialist. “We hear back from teachers all the time about how much more engaged with science their students get when they actually get to hear from someone who does scientific work every day. It inspires us to really want this program to grow.” “The SIS program is definitely an unsung hero when it comes to science education in B.C.,” says Bryan Tisdall, president and CEO of Science World. “It encapsulates everything Science World’s mission is all about: making science fun and accessible and working with members of our community to inspire the science and technology leaders of tomorrow.” The SIS program invites scientists, engineers, technologists and technicians to volunteer their time and share their expertise

with science classes around the province on topics such as health, biotechnology, computing and the environment. Available to grades K–12, SIS visits are free of charge. Since its inception in 1989, over one million students have benefited from the SIS program. Using hands-on activities and career-related

Christmas is just around the corner believe it or not and YANA (You Are Not Alone) is gearing up to make the annual Christmas crackers and we need the help of the community to reach our goal of 5,000 crackers. Each year, volunteers gather at our office at 495 Fitzgerald Ave. for drop in sessions to make the festive crackers. Everything is provided including instructions on how to make them. Drop-in sessions are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., starting Wednesday. Group sessions of six or more can also be arranged for Tuesday and Thursday evenings. If you plan to do a group session you must register early as these spots go quickly. Call the YANA office at 250-871-0343 or contact board director and cracker chairperson Lesley Hunter at 250338-4831. Volunteers are asked to refrain from bringing children because the YANA office is small and can get chaotic. The crackers will be on sale at the Charles Dickens Christmas Craft Faire at the Florence Filberg Centre on Nov. 9 and 10 and also at various businesses throughout the Valley.  They will also be sold at the YANA office and the Driftwood Mall’s Christmas tree display, starting

Learning to die well

SCOTIABANK TELETHON SUPPORTERS and new corporate sponsors of the Canucks show off the Deluxe Raffle Basket and snap up the first Canucks Raffle tickets. Scotiabank district vicepresident for Vancouver Island Purdy McDonald, Courtenay branch manager Arne Einarson, and senior vice-president BC and Yukon region Winnie Leuong.

Telethon, Canucks good fit Hockey fever and the annual Children’s Telethon just seem to go hand in hand. The Comox Valley Child Development Association is raffling two tickets to the March 8, 2014 Vancouver Canucks v.s. Calgary Flames game. The lucky winner will also collect deluxe accommodation for two at the Rosedale on Robson Suite Hotel. Raffle proceeds support the annual Comox Valley Children’s Telethon, now in its 38th year. Only 300 tickets will be sold for the Canucks/ Rosedale package so the odds of winning are excellent. Tickets can be purchased in person at the Child Development Association, 237 Third St. in Courtenay or by phone at 250-3384288. The winning ticket will be drawn at the telethon, live on Shaw TV, Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sid Williams Theatre. The Child Development Association has a second way for you to win big and support the Telethon. Imagine a huge basket stuffed with over $2,500 worth of local treats — gift certificates for restaurants, spas, salons, and speciality shops; passes for skiing and golf; handmade truffles, beauty products, travel accessories, handcrafted quilt, Santa, and art cards; children’s books, toys and games — and much more. No, you are not dreaming, it’s the Child Development

Association’s annual Deluxe Raffle Basket. Local businesses and artisans have generously donated gift certificates and merchandise to stuff this year’s basket with a fabulous assortment of quality winnings to support the annual Children’s Telethon. Keep all the great prizes for yourself or share your good fortune with family and friends — gift giving couldn’t be easier. Raffle basket tickets are available at the Child Development Association, 237 Third St. in Courtenay or by phone at 250-338-4288. In addition, the basket and ticket sales will be making the rounds at various locations around the Comox Valley over the next few weeks. Tickets are only

$2 each or 3 for $5, with the lucky winning ticket to be drawn at the Telethon, live on Shaw TV, Nov. 3 at 7:30 pm at the Sid Williams Theatre. A third way to win is by bidding on one of the fabulous Silent Auction items donated by local artists and businesses. Local First Nations artist Randy Frank is donating a cedar carving which will be finished on site at the Telethon. I-Hos Gallery has donated a magnificent copper pendant by Don Lancaster. These items, plus gift certificates for Two Eagles Lodge, Black Rock Resort, and Coastal Black Winery, and more will be in the Silent Auction at the Telethon. For more info about the Silent Auction, and to place

an advance bid, visit the CVCDA website at www.cvcda.ca. And the fourth way to win? The real winners in this venture are local children with special needs and their families. Like the Telethon, all monies raised by the Raffle Basket, the Hockey Raffle, and the Silent Auction stay in the community to support programs and services for local children with special needs and their families. Therapy equipment, specialized toys, support resources for parents including books, videos, and hands on training — these are just some of the areas that the Child Development Association puts these earnings to work. — Child Development Centre

Comox United Church and the Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship will present the National Film Board film Griefwalker this Friday. Griefwalker tells the story of Stephen Jenkinson, a palliative caregiver and counsellor, who has accompanied over a thousand people on their dying journey. In a culture where death is denied, and medical technology’s goal is to prolong life at all costs, he often sees terror and anxiety in those who are dying, even if there is no pain. He wants to change how we die, saying “I’m trying to teach people how to die well.” Living in two very different two worlds, he works in downtown Toronto, but lives close to the earth in a remote part of Ontario, operating a trapline, using a birch bark canoe he built himself, and greeting sunrise with a First Nations blessing.

The presentation will be at 7 p.m. at Comox United Church. A small group discussion will be held after

the film for those who wish to stay. Admission is by donation. — Comox Valley Unitarian Fellowship

TWO SUMMERS AGO I was work-

ing at Abraxas Books on Denman Island. A small woman with a big purse walked into the store just before closing time. Recognizing her, I said, “I think I know who you are.” Alice Munro replied, “Well, I’m NOT Margaret Atwood!” Congratulations to Alice Munro for winning the Nobel Prize in Literature.

WITH REGARDS TO the CVRD’s

attempt to start a mandatory garbage service, I find that it appears that Big Brother is taking away my right to choose. I prefer to make my choice of which service provider I wish to use and the frequency with which to use it. I have chosen to have weekly pickup because it is convenient although I normally have less than 40 litres of garbage. This costs me more than $200 but I don’t feel that someone else should be subsidizing my choice. Some people choose a less-frequent service, some choose to share one pickup with one or two neighbours and some choose to handle their own garbage. If every household is mandated to weekly pickup, the possibility of an increase to the landfill exists. (If you have to pay for it then you might as well use it. The old axiom Nature Abhors a Vacuum comes into play). If you want to reduce impact on the landfill, providing good, convenient recycling would be a good start.  The big box stores and malls should be mandated to provide recycle facilities as that is where the overpackaging causes most of the recycling. Some information as to what happens to everything after it

hits the recycle bins would be helpful. I fear that the referendum will pass because the majority of regional residents in higher density areas who already have service will see it as a saving while those who don’t need it will be forced to subsidize me.

where he lives. Edwin says he voted on the maximum benefit to  conservers, forgetting that the residents’ proposal would benefit 90 per cent of metered CVRD residents. He liked the surcharge on big users, but he voted against the proposed surcharge in the residents’ proposal. Jim says there is just nothing  that CVRD area directors can do about inequities because Courtenay calls all the shots on water. In other words, user pay only applies to CVRD metered customers until the sun sets on all of us. Local politicians simply need to do much better on such an important resource. Stay tuned, the hometown folks and their neighbours are not going away.

I WOULD LIKE to thank everyone who stopped on Anderton  in Comox, and helped me back into my chair on Wednesday, Oct. 9. Having missed the jump up on the curb I managed to fall out of my wheelchair. Many people stopped and aided me to get back in the chair. Thank goodness I live in such a caring community! THIS IS A big beef to the democratic process in local governments. What could be more important than water? The democratic process. We in the Comox Valley on the Comox Lake system enjoy unlimited use of water at a relatively low cost. User pay makes sense, but Courtenay and Comox  councillors are behind the times on this concept — way behind — it could stall development. They are not the only disconnected, out-of-touch  politicians. Some CVRD customers have been concerned about mock bills. Not the user pay aspect, but the multiple tiers that bring tears to those who see simplicity as less expensive, and  equity as the guiding principle.

CORRECT ME IF I am wrong, but

this is what I gathered from a writeup in Have Your Say last week. You think deer are a huge expense because they deliberately damage your vehicle (couldn’t possibly be due to bad driving), cougars are to be feared, and bears are not allowed to eat what you are too lazy to remove from your trees. Your Out of the Box solution to this is gathering and herding them all up to the north end of the island into a fenced wildlife park to keep them contained. OMG! Did you actually read what you wrote before you sent it off? Has your brain gone on vacation without you? You moved to an island where believe it or not, animals were here first. We are encroaching on them. If you can’t handle the awesome wildlife on our beautiful island – I have a solution for you – move – go back to the largest city you can find and surround yourself with the concrete jungle, neighbours’ homes two feet apart, traffic, and crime. Please make sure you give up your driver’s license and take transit because I think the root of your problem begins with bad driving.

SO, RURAL RESIDENTS proposed a backyard, hometown solution to interim water costs, since the  Valley politicians are like the Hatfields and McCoys  on this issue. Hometown, backyard BBQ  folks and neighbours are open and trusting — we did not expect the CVRD administration to talk about 18-cent water — low  blow. Bruce bought this line not thinking that CVRD  conservers will pay much more per litre of water than Union Bay,

IT IS A GOOD  thing to support local museums, history and local arts. Some taxpayers don’t mind helping out. However, we note it will cost $5,000 a year to administer this program. More than most grants!  We also  will be asked to vote on a universal garbage service, that will commit every CVRD taxpayer to a likely large CVRD  administrative cost. You can bet that the present waste collection companies do not pay huge salaries and benefits for  administering this service. Recently at a public meeting, many Area B residents asked the CVRD why we will pay higher costs for water, than Courtenay and Comox  — the answer implied  that CVRD costs are higher. More overhead for few customers.  Residents proposed annual billing for water — saving many thousands of dollars in CVRD administrative fees.  Area directors rejected this cost-saving initiative. What happened to cost effective delivery of services? Our area directors seem unconcerned about the cost of local government.

Dark fashion statement could be your last one Unlike Harry Potter, who relished becoming invisible to other mortals by wearing a certain piece of clothing, visibility is critical for those of us who share the streets with vehicles, especially at this time of year. Dark clothing is, and probably always will be, in style. That fact makes it even tougher for drivers to spot people crossing streets or riding along the edge of roadways without lights or flashers. But visibility is a two-way street. Not only do drivers need to be constantly aware of the presence of other types of road users, those cyclists, runners, walkers, scooter users and skateboarders that drivers encounter also need to respect the fact they may not be easily seen. We hear experts say when you meet up with a bear in the woods, a good idea is to make yourself seem “big.” In the case of road users not in vehicles, being “big” means being visible, enough so that no question arises about your actions or use of the shared space. For non-drivers who may have an inflated sense of entitlement for their choice to use alternative transportation, including your feet, think about this: you’ll virtually always lose a head-tohead confrontation with a vehicle. While the rules of the road are meant to be observed by all parties, there is no substitute for pedestrians and drivers making eye contact at a crosswalk, or, if riding your bike on a main thoroughfare, being aware that the light behind you just changed and traffic will soon be upon you. Those are common safety practices good for any time of the year, but fall and winter are particularly tricky for visibility. So why not get yourself a reflective vest, flashing reflector buttons or lights, or reflective cuff strips? Your life is worth more than any pain you might suffer from making a temporary bad Victoria News fashion statement.

Comox Valley water rates continue to be contentious because not everybody is metered, and multiple jurisdictions apply different standards.

Water too precious to waste Dear editor, I reside in the Comox Valley Regional District and am a water meter/user pay supporter, even though we have a .41-acre lot and have many gardens. We use  a substantial amount of water in the drier months, although we have reduced consumption about 30 per cent by modifying our automatic sprinkling system to focus on gardens and shrubs. The grass is hand-watered now. A few of my neighbours have discovered, and repaired, water leaks in service piping on their properties, as a result of metering and huge “mock water bills.” I’m aware that more than a million gallons of previously wasted water is now available for other customers.  Unfortunately, many other customers in Courtenay and Comox don’t know that they are wasting water. A number of rural water customers have been discussing water meter rates with the CVRD. We made a proposal for an interim rate structure that would see some equity with Courtenay

and Comox customers on the same water system. The CVRD directors rejected our proposal.  At that meeting, I asked our three area directors to provide leadership and work with neighbouring politicians to implement universal water metering. The

I find it bizarre that ❝ the CVRD is requesting more water, when they only have influence over 10 per cent of the water use.

Phil Harrison

response was that they have no influence on the Comox Valley water committee. I find it bizarre that the CVRD is requesting more water, when they only have influence over 10 per cent of the water use.  I don’t mind paying for the water we use. However, when I checked the water consumption use on the Town of Comox website, I note that some metered custom-

ers within the town limits use much more water than I do, and pay a low flat rate of $327 per year. I will pay much more for less water, from the same source. Be that as it may, there is lot of water wasted in Courtenay and Comox by undetected leaks. As well, I’m not aware of any program to systematically detect and repair leaks in the CVRD water distribution system. There needs to be much more done to eliminate wasted water, before granting more water to the Comox Valley. We are blessed with a reliable, unlimited customer-use water supply — we can’t waste it while many rural neighbours have limited water supplies. Many have no piped water. I suggest that the Province could be more helpful in developing a  water conservation plan for the use of Comox Lake/Puntledge River water. It is apparent  that universal water metering and  leak detection/repair needs to be part of the plan. Phil Harrison, Area B

Please sign new health accord Dear editor,  I want to support the initiative started by the Council of Canadians in trying to get Prime Minister Harper and his government to sign the new Health Accord in 2014. When our public medicare started, I was proud to be a Canadian. At that point, though, the federal government was contributing 50 per cent of the funding and now it is down to 18 to 20 per cent. Since the prime minister will give a new budget speech this week, could he please, please at least include the signing of a new Health Accord?

It would ensure funding for public health care, which will include more home and community care, universal pharmacare and that he would work on national standards for health care.  We have recently learned in our community that our home support for seniors will be slashed by about 50 per cent. With the new push to keep people at home rather than in hospitals and residential care, the messages, at best, are mixed. It is cost-effective to keep people at home, but public home support is absolutely necessary. Please fund that more.  Please!

I hope he will listen to my urgent plea. I am a senior and am a caregiver for a more senior Gwyn Frayne, husband. Courtenay

OPINION

www.comoxvalleyrecord.com

Ottawa’s actions ‘broken promise’

Dear editor, I am appalled by the treacherous tactics implemented by the Liberal government and BC Hydro throughout this entire smart meter program, including but not limited to: · The Liberal government’s decision to implement the smart meter program without public consultation or oversight by the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC): · The aggressive position taken by then Energy Minister Rich Coleman to impose the controversial devices in spite of the health and privacy concerns raised by the province’s citizens and various public interest groups; · The outright lie set out in BC Hydro’s January 2013 form letter that was sent out to the smart meter holdouts, that the smart meter grid could not be operable unless all analog meters were swapped out for smart meters ... yet today there are still 60,000 holdouts receiving “estimated” invoices for hydro usage, while smart meter holders receive bills reporting “actual” usage; · With the election looming earlier this year, the Liberal government reverses its position and advises that smart meters would not be imposed on homeowners who continued to refuse their forced installation; · The continued lie that smart meters provide “automatic outage detection” as clearly reflected in Hydro’s Smart Metering Program Meter Choices mailout sent to holdout homeowners in July 2013. · Now the imposition of a punitive $35 monthly fee, to commence Dec. 2 for all holdouts wishing to keep their analog meter to supposedly cover the costs of manual meter readings, when for the last 35 years we have been paying electricity rates that included the cost of reading our analog meter; · Energy Minster Bill Bennett having issued a cabinet order to the BCUC in advance of Hydro’s application for smart meter fees, instructing the BCUC to approve extra fees to smart meter holdouts. While the BCUC retains its ability to lower the fees if it sees fit, it is further instructed not to eliminate them entirely or make any changes to how Hydro runs the smart meter program; · Hydro is mandated to pay annual dividends to the Provincial Government — $545 million this year alone. I’ve come to the realization that these tactics are regularly and increasingly utilized by all levels of government and that the public is left with little recourse. As a result of being on a limited fixed income, I am left with no choice but to accept the installation of your smart meter. Christopher Miles, Black Creek

Dear editor, Treasury Board president Tony Clement has reportedly ordered a change to the federal extended health insurance plan that would effectively double the premiums paid by retired members of the Canadian

Armed Forces, RCMP and public service. My immediate concern is that the more vulnerable retirees — seniors on the lower rungs of the economic ladder — could be forced to choose between health insurance and the daily

necessities of life. That is hardly moving Canada in the right direction. For myself, I regard this as a broken promise. During my 35 years in the RCAF, those of my contemporaries who moved to the private sector earned two

to three times what I did for similar work. That was OK. I felt what we were doing was important plus I was promised a pension and a continuation of the extended health coverage for which I first signed up in the 1960s.

Dear editor, On Oct. 10, Courtenay Mayor Larry Jangula and his council hosted their Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner at the Florence Filberg Centre. My name is Gerald Heron and I am a Broombuster volunteer. All Broombusters appreciated this gesture and all the support we received from our community, and this includes all the appreciative honks from passing motorists. We thank you all for cheering us on. We are a group led by Bev Agur, who regrettably was unable to attend the volunteer dinner. We would be remiss if we did not make a sincere and honour-

able mention of her leadership and dedication to this cause. Bev was there every day, with tools and refreshments and with good spirits, rain or shine, and she led by example with her hard labour and tireless efforts. Bev welcomed all volunteers and we also would like to encourage any and all members of our community to consider volunteering some of their spare time (even if it is for only one day from 8:30 a.m. to noon) to this worthy cause. A lot more can be accomplished with a brigade-size volunteer force. It is great exercise, lots of fresh air, and a true team spirit. We will all be out in force next spring

and will look forward to improving our community for everyone’s benefit. Once again, a big

thank you to our mayor and our community. G.P. Heron, Comox Valley

Dear editor, As someone who experiences Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), I welcomed the information by counsellor Diane Davis (Clouds roll in  — and depression does the same, Record, Oct. 10). I also can recommend a high-intensity lamp as treatment. However, this is no toy — it is a medical device! I find that people who use these lamps do not know how to use them effectively,

and that can create an unsatisfactory or negative result. I suggest that anyone who uses or plans to use a SAD lamp first take a selfassessment test that will evaluate one’s circadian rhythms and prescribe the optimal times to use the lamp. Doctors/medical professionals take note, too! The test can be found at www.usa. philips.com/c/circadian/178345/cat. Judy Goldschmidt, Courtenay

Appreciation for volunteers

Now it seems that one part of that contract is about to be torn up. One wonders what is next. The National Association of Federal Retirees (FSNA) has been opposing this arbitrary change as a matter of principle through a campaign of letters and petitions. Anyone who would like to lend their support can do so by following the link to Honour Your Promise at www.fsna.com. William Turnbull, Courtenay

COURTENAY, B.C.

Visiting Brains blur many genres

Canada’s most insanest, undeadest and bestest psychobilly horror-punks are back with with their latest, greatest album to date. The Brains has never been a band to follow the rules … in fact they’ve made it a point to utterly and completely destroy every single one of them with each album they release and every show they play. These hardworking road-warriors have brought their eye-popping live show to the four corners of the world; playing packed houses throughout Europe, Canada and the U.S. alongside acts like Mad Sin, The Offspring, The Reverend Horton Heat, The Real McKenzies, The Creepshow and many more. The Monster Within is an unholy collection of 14 mindbendingly brain-melting tracks that will explode in your earholes like a hell-born volcano. They play Oct. 24 at the Waverley Hotel. The impossibly fast and unbelievably tight rhythm section of Pat Kadaver (skins) and Colin The Dead (standup bass) threaten to push the limits of sanity and safety to the very edge. Rene D La Muerte’s (vocals/Gretsch) haunting croon sends shivers up the spines of even the most jaded listener while his signature guitar stylings fuse the rockabilly sounds of the ‘50s with the intensity of an industrial chainsaw. The Brains continue to blur the lines between rockabilly, psycho, surf, punk and rock n’ roll; kicking down genre barriers and demanding undying loyalty at every show they play. Incorporating elements from whatever the hell they feel like, The Brains concoct an irresistible brew of Motorheadesque ferocity and sexed-up Latin swagger while adding a pinch of rockabilly revival and a whole lot of boozefuelled punk rock mayhem. The bill includes special guests the East End Radicals. See RADICALS, B2

THE FITZGERALD FAMILY from Ontario will perform in Merville on Oct. 22 as part of a Western Canadian tour.

Director Bell back home for Seven Brides

Director and choreographer Danette Bell returns to the Comox Valley this week with the stage version of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, produced by Rainbow Youth Theatre (RYT). Born and raised in the Comox Valley, Bell is a seasoned director and choreographer, but Seven Brides will be her directorial debut in her birth town. “This feels like a full circle for me and yet is also something new,” says Bell. Bell was approached by RYT in the spring of 2013 and asked if she would like to direct a show of

her choosing for their fall production. She chose Brides because she believes that it reflects the RYT principles of bringing family together on the stage. “This story is based on family and the heart of the family. It also is a perfect RYT show because it allows for a lot of talent to shine. The script provides for numerous lead roles as well as many opportunities for the supporting cast.” She also points out that this production is reflective of the strong farming community that exists in the Valley as it is based upon rural life in Oregon.

The cast and crew have been working hard since early September to perfect this show and the rehearsal schedule has been demanding. “It is a huge task to mount such a major production with such a large cast and only 20 days of rehearsal,” says Bell. “I have pushed the cast hard and watched their confidence level go up over the weeks. There should never be anything content about rehearsing for musical theatre, every rehearsal was about raising the bar and the cast has responded to that direction.”

Bell is passionate about theatre and about teaching the craft of performing and has interspersed her rehearsal time with information about how the theatre industry works and what is to be expected of any actor who aspires to pursue a career in musical theatre. The cast have benefited from her direction and experience, and enjoyed doing this production with her. James Coates, who is playing the part of one of the brothers in the show, says that “working with Danette has been

SINGER TOM WILSON leads LeE HARVeY OsMOND in an intimate concert Oct. 22 at the Venue Formerly Known As Joe’s Garage.

Wilson back with Osmond

Tom Wilson struck Canadian rock gold in the ’90s as the leader of the much-loved Junkhouse, then found a whole new audience as a vital component of roots-rock super-group Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. The music of Wilson, who brings his band LeE HARVeY OsMOND to Courtenay Oct. 22, has been performed by a growing list of artists and collaborators. Numerous Wilson songs have also been used in television, commercials and movies. Wilson and LeE HARVeY OsMOND will take his audience on an entertaining, musical journey. The Wilson-led project released its sophomore album The Folk Sinner in January. Produced by Michael Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies, The Folk Sinner is the followup to the band’s Polaris Music Prize long-listed debut, A Quiet Evil. Special guests include Margo Timmins (Cowboy Junkies), Hawksley Workman, Colin Linden, Oh Susanna, Andy Maize, Colin Cripps and Paul Reddick. For more about Wilson’s band, visit http:// latentrecordings.com/leeharveyosmond. Tickets for the Oct. 22 gig are available at Bop City and at https://store.cumberlandvillageworks.com.

Her vision, her talent and her experience are what make this an awesome show!” Bell started dancing at the age of three in the Native Sons Hall with the Joy Woodrow School of Dance.

Highet was born in Kilmarnock, Scotland in 1933 and was educated at Kilmarnock Academy and the University of Glasgow. With wife Isabel, he emigrated to Nanaimo in 1958. Alastair retired in 1988 and, more recently, has revived his interest in organ playing. He is working on his fourth CD of classical organ music at his home in Lantzville. The organ component of the program promises tuneful and fresh music from contemporary, romantic and baroque eras and from classical, jazz and even popular styles. Highet has nothing but praise for the audiences he has played for at Cumberland United Church — he describes them as numerous, attentive, very receptive and appreciative!

Kon-Tiki movie an epic retelling

Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 85th Academy Awards, Kon-Tiki is an epic retelling of Thor Heyerdahl’s 1947 expedition across the Pacific Ocean. Directed by Joachim Roenning and Espen

Sandberg, the team behind the Second World War epic Max Manus, the film chronicles, with breathtaking visuals, Heyerdahl’s bold journey from Peru to Polynesia. A risk-taker since childhood, Heyerdahl

MOTIF MUSIC STUDIOS will support their Ugandan sponsor child Saturday with a Practice-a-Thon.

Motif students on a mission

For the third year in a row, local music students and teachers from Motif Music Studios will take turns practising in four different practice rooms from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday. It’s to raise awareness and support for their Motif sponsor child, Filimon, through Compassion International. Motif students have raised support for -nine-year-old Filimon from Uganda since 2011. The support he receives during this yearly Practice-a-Thon event looks after his

food, clothing and schooling for the full year. If you are a local business or individual and would like to find out how you can get involved in this annual event, e-mail motifmusicstudios@gmail.com. There is opportunity to donate any amount towards a specific student’s practice time, receiptable through Compassion Canada (www.compassion.ca), as well as item donations towards draw prizes for participating students. — Motif Music Studios

is one of the last examples of the scientist as adventurer. Unable to find a publisher to print his thesis that the settlers of Polynesia could have arrived from South America rather than from Asia as commonly believed, he hatches a plan to cross the Pacific on raft, just like the ancient Incas before him. Undeterred by the obstacles he encounters — ridicule at his outlandish hypothesis, dire financial straits, and strained family relationships — Heyerdahl assembles an authentic replica of a balsa wood raft along with a motley crew to join him on his journey. The challenges involved in launching the voyage pale in comparison to the harsh conditions they face at sea — violent storms, encounters with sharks and mounting tensions among the crew. Roenning and Sandberg’s faithful retelling of Heyerdahl’s expedition is by turns exciting, tense, and, ultimately, triumphant. With stunning cinematography of the ocean and all that the expedition encounters within it, Kon-Tiki is an awe-inspiring film of impressive scale that begs to be seen on the big screen. A blockbuster in its home country that was shot simultaneously in Norwegian and English in anticipation of a broad English-language release, it is sure to enthral audiences

and inspire a sense of adventure. Tickets are available in the Comox Valley Art Gallery gift shop.

THE APRIL MAZE is a husband-and-wife act that one reviewer says has “an originality that is exciting and inspiring to experience live.”

Aussie couple in house show With an air of the ‘70s San Francisco spirit and a cello in tow, Australian troubadour couple The April Maze are bringing their sweetly endearing folk sound to Canada. The April Maze consists of the quirky and charming Todd Mayhew and Sivan Agam. This husband-andwife duo joined forces seven years ago in a shared house in Melbourne, then embraced the wandering minstrel natures of their folk forebears, living out of their ’76 VW Kombi van whilst touring throughout Australia, New Zealand, the U.K. and Europe. After gaining national recognition in 2012 — reaching the top 100 most popular albums on Spotify, touring non-stop and performing live on Australian national TV — they are now bringing their troubadour spirit to B.C. and the Yukon. The pair have been planning their trip to Canada for some time, not only to play music,

Made on the Island for the Island

but to catch up with Todd’s Canadian relatives and to retrace the steps of his great grandfather, Bishop Isaac O. Stringer. The April Maze have been telling the legendary Arctic survival story of Todd’s great grandfather through their song The Bishop Who Ate His Boots. “The April Maze show provides all of the vitality and beauty that good folk music has to offer, and an originality that is exciting and inspiring to experience live — with their rich, human vocals, between two people the live show has an amazingly full and deep sound.” AU Review 2013 For details about the performers, visit www. theaprilmaze.com. The April Maze will appear in a house concert in Cumberland on Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. For show details, visit www.theaprilmaze.com or contact the concert host at 250-218-1689 or homeroutesvi@gmail.com. — Home Routes VI

The September Jazz evening was attended at the Little Red Church in Comox by over 100 fans. They were treated to a highly entertaining evening of live jazz,  performed by the Valley’s newest jazz combo, Ralph Barrat and the Sharp Seven. The evening included a presentation of original paintings by Jerry Simice. In between music sets, the audience even participated in a demonstration led by tai chi master Sean Murphy and his students. This Thursday at 7:30 p.m., the Little Red Church will host the second evening of the Fall Jazz Series when the ever-popular Georgia Strait Big Band will perform, featuring conductor Gregory Bush and vocalist Jackie Zbirun. The music will begin with an opening-act combo, supporting local student Evie Kenny on alto saxophone. Complementing the music will be a winetasting, hosted by the Comox Valley’s own Blue Moon Estate Winery. Tickets for the evening are on sale at Bop City in Courtenay, Red Carpet Boutique in Comox and Rewind Coffeebar in the Tin Town section of Courtenay. The goal of Little Red Church is to facilitate a low-cost, multiuse space for creative individuals and groups to develop their own diverse programs and events. — Little Red Church

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

Options exist for seniors’ housing SANDWICH GENERATION

seniors with low to moderate incomes. For more information on both options, visit BC Housing at www.bchousing.org or call 1-800-257-7756. Supportive Housing is designed to assist seniors in remaining independent longer and include a combination of onsite support services, sometimes referred to as hospitality services or personal assistance. The support services package will include: • At least one main meal per day (lunch or dinner); •  24-hour emergency response; • Weekly light housekeeping; • Weekly laundering of towels and linens; • Social and recreational activities. Any health-related services are delivered by the local health authority or by private health providers just as they would be to any other individuals living independently in the community. Typically, this option

is not subsidized and options include Berwick Retirement Communities, Comox Valley Seniors Village, Stevenson Place and Abbeyfield House. The easiest way to describe Assisted Living is housing that includes the services listed above for Supportive Housing with additional help with personal care needs such as bathing or taking medications. Assisted Living is available with or without subsidies. Publicly funded Assisted Living units are in very high demand and typically there is a waitlist. Access to subsidized Assisted Living is based on the urgency of an individual’s care needs. Criterion for acceptance includes an assessment by an Island Health Authority case manager. Typically individuals need to be considered at risk in their current housing as well as require personal assistance. Home support service needs to be in place for three months before a client can be waitlisted for a subsidized suite. For more information on subsidized Assisted Living call

250-331-8570 or tollfree at 1-866-9284988.  Visit www.viha. ca for more information on Home and Community Care and publicly funded housing options. Residential Care (or Complex Care) provides 24-hour skilled nursing care and supervision for people who have complex health needs. Staff members administer medications and assist residents with daily activities such as eating, bathing and dressing. Eligibility for a government subsidized Residential Care facility is determined by a case manager from Island Health Authority. Those assessed as having the greatest need are given priority for admission to the first available and appropriate bed. Cost is a daily rate based on 80 per cent of a senior’s income. There are also pri-

Our ability to adapt to stress depends upon optimal function of the adrenal glands. When excess stress overloads our adrenal glands symptoms can include: fatigue, insomnia, anxiety, depression, low back pain, asthma, allergies, blood sugar problems, hormonal imbalances, irritability, headaches, sugar cravings, gastrointestinal symptoms and inflammatory conditions.

Throughout my life I had good health and boundless energy and then suddenly in my early 30’s I hit the wall with fatigue… I had three children under the age of 3, my marriage broke up, and I went back to work thinking I could ‘do it all’. My body did not agree… nothing helped the crippling fatigue until I saw a naturopathic doctor who introduced me to my adrenal glands. When I started naturopathic practice in the 1980’s it was my own experience with adrenal fatigue that allowed me to recognize it in my patients and over the years I saw the need for an effective adrenal supplement. AdrenaSense® is the original solution I formulated for patients and others who have found it very effective.

The Original AdrenaSense Formula:

The herbs in the AdrenaSense formula are called adaptogens that have been proven to support stress reactions and normalize adrenal function. These include Rhodiola, Suma, Schizandra Berries, Siberian Ginseng and Ashwagandha, which in combination, enhance mental and physical performance; balance the nervous system helping with anxiety and insomnia; support the immune, cardiovascular and hormonal systems; counteract fatigue, anxiety and depression; as well as provide vital energy.

It’s time to finish the Seniors Housing series by reviewing options in the Comox Valley. Our community has a variety of housing choices depending on care needs and available monthly income. Independent Living or Retirement communities or housing geared at seniors (usually 55 and older) are intended for seniors who do not require onsite services. Seniors can continue to live independently and arrange privately to have services such as Meals on Wheels and home support delivered directly. Seniors may also receive services provided by their local health authority. Housing options include condominiums, townhouses, patio homes, rental apartments and incomeassisted apartments. Income-assisted apartments require an application and there are often waitlists. The Housing Registry is a publication through BC Housing with a list of all income-assisted housing options for seniors.  The Shelter Aid for Elderly Renters (SAFER) program helps make rents affordable for BC

Contra dance coming It is getting chillier out there so surprise your sweetie this Thursday with an invitation to a Friendly Fall Contra Dance at the Big Yellow Merville Hall. Slip on the dancing boots  and whoop it up to the Contra Dance tunes of the Funtime Fiddlers. They’ve rosined up the bows and are keen to deliver the tunes while our dance caller, June Cannon, keeps the dancers organized and even brings the wallflowers onto the floor.   Before the dance, from 7 to 7:30 p.m., there will be a Contra Dance workshop as well as some instruction in basic waltz patterns. The workshops are free of charge so plan to come early. At 7:30 p.m.,  the Funtime Fiddlers start the music.  Single dancers are most welcome as

they can pair up with anyone during the Contras and our Contra sets last about 15 to 20 minutes per dance. In between the called Contra dances, we’ll play waltzes, foxtrots and polkas. Everyone gets a chance to prance and dance. We will also have a special guest fiddler who will enthral the audience with his energetic playing and his international aura.  There has been a new heating system installed in the hall and now the  atmosphere is warm, friendly and welcoming. The Big Yellow Merville Dance Hall is right on the Old Island Highway between Campbell River and Courtenay. For details, phone 250-3394249. — Funtime Fiddlers

Leduc looking forward to ski cross season Earle Couper Record Staff

Mathieu Leduc of Comox and the Alpine Canada national ski cross team have just concluded a rigorous training session in New Zealand. The 23-year-old Highland Secondary School grad, who honed his skills with the Mount Washington Ski Club, said the trip “down under” for the team’s first on-snow training of the year was a memorable one. “After 16 hours of flying, a three-hour layover and three-hour drive I arrived in Lake Tekapo, New Zealand. The lakes had eightfoot waves and the wind was blowing at 120 km/h – needless to say the first day in New Zealand would be a rest day due to weather,” Leduc said. “The next day when the weather had cleared the dramatic landscape of the central south island was very evident with its unrealistically blue lakes and windblown mountains. We were lucky to get a solid freeze and I got some technical things dialled up the next few days that we spent in Tekapo. After three days we departed to Wanaka to ski the ski cross track at Cardrona. “The track was well set up when we arrived at the hill and we took advantage of some more solid weather for the first week in Cardrona to get ourselves comfortable on a ski cross track once again. “Our hosts, the Australian and Kiwi ski cross teams, had been there a few weeks before us so most of the track was well tested for us and I quickly felt back up to speed on course. “We hit some less favourable weather the next week but we still managed to get some good start training sessions,” Leduc recounted.

MATHIEU LEDUC AND his Canadian ski cross teammates had a successful training camp in New Zealand. The Highland grad is competing on the World Cup circuit this season and hopes to also attend the 2014 Winter Olympics and X Games. “After a tough summer of training I was happy with how strong I was feeling in the start gate and on the track every run. “(I’m) hoping with three more weeks of dry-land training before our next camp in Stubai (a mountain range in the Central Eastern Alps of Europe) I will be able to improve on my strength some more and get final preparations done before a long and important World Cup season.” As well as World Cup circuit, Leduc says he hopes to be at the 2014 Winter Olympics if he qualifies and the X Games if Canada is included this season. “My main goal is to improve my world rank and qualify for the Olympics,” he said. 

Leduc is hoping the Valley will help him achieve his goals. “Any support would be greatly appreciated as I am still looking for a main head gear sponsorship as well as a shoulder patch sponsorship.” He can be contacted at leducski@me.com and on his cellphone at 250218-8174. Follow Leduc on Twitter @leducski. Leduc is one of three skiers who graduated to the national team in 2013. A former alpine skier, he took part in six World Cup races in 2012-13, gaining a career-best 17th-place finish in Telluride, Colo. The Chicoutimi, Que. native was ranked 47th in the world in 2012-13.

weeks of dry-land training before our next camp in Stubai (a mountain range in the Central Eastern Alps of Europe) I will be able to improve on my strength some more and get final preparations done before a long and important World Cup season.

Earle Couper The Comox Valley Glacier Kings and Kerry Park Islanders are seeing a lot of each other these days. In Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League action last week, the teams split a pair of games, with the Islanders winning 4-2 Oct. 12 at home and the Glacier Kings prevailing 9-7 Oct. 11 in Courtenay. On Saturday, special teams were the difference as Kerry Park went 2-for-5 on the power play and added a short-handed empty netter for good measure. The Glacier Kings were 0-for-7 with the man advantage. The Islanders led 2-0 after one period and 3-2 after two. The Glacier Kings out-shot the Isles 33-32 with Blake Pearson (game third star) taking the loss and Leighton Williams netting the win. Nicholas Tupper tallied his second goal of the season and Sheldon Brett notched his eighth of the year for the Glacier Kings. Eric Mansueti (second star) tallied one goal and one assist for Kerry Park. Friday night in Courtenay the Islanders’ special teams (5-for-13 PP) outperformed the Glacier Kings (2-for-8 PP), but the Icemen won a wild one 9-7. The Yetis never trailed, leading 4-2 after one and 7-5 after two. They outshot the visitors 36-28 with Scott Legault the winner and Jackson Jane the loser. A big six-point (3g, 3a) game by Brett earned him first-star

Youth football teams put on great display of skills Thanksgiving weekend featured three  extremely entertaining youth football games at Bill Moore Memorial Park in Courtenay. Friday night under the lights, the Comox Valley Raiders Junior Bantams hosted the Campbell River Eagles  in a hard-fought contest in which the Eagles prevailed 45-42. On Saturday the Raiders PeeWees were able to come from behind and defeat the Campbell River Eagles by two touchdowns. On Sunday the Bantam Raiders were competitive with the more experienced  North Surrey  Tigers,  holding the score to 21-20 going into the fourth

quarter  where  the  Tigers scored two quick touchdowns to win 36-20. The RaiderS Midget game was cancelled due to injuries and the flu bug. “Terrific football games provided by six teams of players  whose efforts were outstanding,” a Raiders’ spokesperson said. In Week 8 (Oct. 20) action, all four Raiders teams are on the road. The PeeWees are at Oceanside (Parksville), the Junior Bantams are also at Oceanside, the Bantams are at Langley and the Midgets are in Maple Ridge to play the Meadow Ridge Knights. – Comox Valley Raiders Youth Football

The 44th edition of athletics at G.P. Vanier in Courtenay has arrived, and fall teams are now in full swing. “We have coaches for most of the sports available during this season, and all are well into their competitive seasons,” said athletic director Larry Street. “We are so lucky at Vanier to have so many strong programs, many of which are legitimate Island and Provincial contenders year after year. “A d m i n i s t r a t i v e representatives Brian McAskill and Jason Cobey have given a great amount of support to the coaches and teams. Our PAC and principal Darren Freeman, as well as V.P. Jennifer Gordon, do their best to help out the athletic program,” Street said. “G.P. Vanier has a proud tradition of sport that is well known to all other communities throughout the province, and is perennially one of the top allround schools in B.C. A big reason for that is the dedication that the coaching staff provides year in and out. “All staff at Vanier understand the importance of students being connected to our school … a school that has extreme pride in everything we do in extracurricular activity. That is why 2013-14 will again be a banner year,” Street said. “At this point, G.P. Vanier is tiered AAAA in girls volleyball and in boys basketball, while all our other teams are primarily tiered as AAA. “We proudly look forward to competing with the best the rest of the province have to offer.” Street provided a look at fall sports already in progress: Sr. Boys Soccer Community coaches Alan Fletcher and Dave Nelson are spearheading this young team. The team is made up of many international students, and with the mix with our experienced Valley boys it is a fun team to watch. All team members are looking forward to having a great time this year.

ROB MICKELBERRY’S JOURNEY TO THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY After nearly a year travelling on a “rock star” bus from one end of North America to another, Rob Mickelberry, his wife and three children were ready to re-establish permanent roots back home in Victoria. “We bought a property while we were on the road,” says Rob, “then lived in the old house while we sub-divided the lot and built a new home that would be ours.” Because Rob wanted the home – completed in May 2013 – “for the long haul,” he was determined it would not cost a fortune to run.

Rob Mickelberry

By calling in certified energy advisors City Green Solutions early in the design process, Rob was able to build-in a number of refinements – including an air source heat pump, triple glazing, a heat recovery ventilation system and extra insulation – that resulted in the home achieving a remarkable EnerGuide 88 rating from Natural Resources Canada. That makes it, says Mike Young of City Green, “approximately 59 per cent more energy efficient than if this home had been built to BC Building Code standards.” It will also save Rob an estimated $1,500 to $1,800 a year on his energy bills. Icing on the cake: the high EnerGuide rating also qualified Rob for $2,000 in incentives from the BC Hydro Power Smart New Home Program, and he’s eligible for the ENERGY STAR® Package incentive of $150 per home for installing qualified energy-efficient lighting and appliances.

Take time to explore natural wonders of Puntledge C

ourtenay – a river runs through it and in the process is making a growing number of happy anglers. The Puntledge is our home river and since the pink salmon opening last month and now the chum salmon opening it is truly making a contribution to the happiness of local as well as guest anglers who come to the Valley to fish our increasingly popular chum salmon runs. As of this writing the river is open for retention of two chum salmon. You are requested to release with care all chinook, coho, and steelhead salmon plus unmarked cutthroat trout you may hook while trying to catch a nice bright chum salmon. It is assumed the same level of care is practised in releasing any chum salmon you may choose not to keep. While it is frequently overlooked by many levels of government and tourist agencies, the current recreational fishery on the river is an important contributor to the bottom

line of many business operators in the Valley. Starting in early September with the pink salmon opening and continuing for as long as the chum run lasts, the open air theatre on both sides of the Condensory Bridge attracts hundreds of viewers who come

to watch moments of great drama and spinetingling excitement as the piscatorial actors play their hearts out in the intrigue and suspense of who will hook a salmon. There is another place to watch a very different type of river theatre. If you drive up Fifth Street to where it crosses the tracks and turn right and travel down the little hill you will be on First Street at Puntledge Park where Morrison Creek enters. Here the angling drama is very different. Park your car and begin a slow nature walk that has all the qualities of a great symphony with nature’s band of river, birds and breezes supplying the music. For starters the mouth of the creek is closed to angling to protect the Morrison Creek lamprey which is on the endangered species list. Take a moment as you cross over Morrison Creek and watch the remnants of the pink salmon run and the growing numbers of chum salmon gathering at the

ly important aspect of non anglers being able to react with nature in these important places. • • • Notice – The Puntledge River Hatchery

The sounds of Courtenay are left on the edge of the forest and you enter a place where only the sounds of the river, the birds and the breezes combine to create a sense of nature right in the middle of our urban centre. Farther along First Street you come to Rod and Gun Club Road. Turn right and follow it out to the parking spot on the bank above the river. At this point you start on the Rotary Club Riverside Trail that will lead you onto the Ruth Masters Trail and nature reserve she donated to the Valley. While much of the reason I write about the river is for anglers there is also the equal-

Order of Canada in 1984 for his conservation efforts. In 20 years of writing a column in the Comox Valley Record it has won several awards.

In loving memory DEATHS

GOODSELL, Mildred Dorothy March 30, 1925 - September 22, 2013 It is with heartfelt sorrow, sadness and great love we say goodbye to Mildred “Millie� Goodsell (nee Hawkins). Born in Comox March 30, 1925 to Ellen and George Hawkins. Millie lived most of her life in the Comox Valley where she met and married her husband Don Goodsell (predeceased 1993) and together they raised their two daughters Linda and Patricia. Her husband Don lovingly nicknamed her “Cookie� and that name stuck with the entire family. Millie joined the Forces @ the age of 17 and served the war effort in Canada, carrying on after the war with a career in the civil service until retirement. Don and Millie loved their leisure time together enjoying driving the back roads of British Columbia hunting, fishing and camping in their travel trailer. She dedicated her time to the women’s auxiliary of the Royal Canadian Legion - Comox Branch 160 of which she was a 60 year life member and was instrumental in the development of d’Esterre House Seniors’ Centre in downtown Comox. In retirement Millie and Don spent many years snow birding to Mazatlan Mexico in their RV enjoying that time with old and new friends. In later years, her health failing, she moved in with her daughter Patricia’s family in Duncan where she could have close family care and spent her last 5 years. Millie has left behind Linda MacLeod and her husband John and Patricia Wallis and her husband Bryan, seven grand children and 12 great grand children. Thank you to Comox Home Care and People at Home care workers who attended to Millie while she was living in Comox with her brother Bob. The family wish to express their sincere thank you to the many health care workers who, with considerable kindness, attended to Millie while in Duncan and thank you to the staff of residential care facility of Cairnsmore Place and the Cowichan District Hospital. Online condolences may be made at www.hwwallacecbc.com

Tippenhauer, Marlis Grete Helen April 1933 - September 2013

Marlis Grete Helen Tippenhauer passed away on September 29th, 2013 at her home in Black Creek, B.C. Gracing the world with her presence on April 17th, 1933 in Hildesheim, Germany, Marlis developed a passion for swimming, sewing and culinary arts. Later on in her teenage years, she apprenticed and became a Seamstress, a talent she continued to utilize throughout her entire life, making beautiful clothing for herself as well as her entire family. Marlis married the “love of her life�, Henry Tippenhauer, on December 17th, 1955. In 1956, the two newlyweds ventured to British Columbia to begin a new life together. They first arrived in Pioneer Goldmine, then at Southgate Camp eventually settling in Black Creek, where they built a beautiful home. Marlis happily remained at her home for the rest of her life. The happy couple were blessed with a son, Roy, in 1960. When they weren’t working hard taking care of their home, they were camping, fishing or skiing at Forbidden Plateau, activities they continued to take part in for many years. Roy married his wife, Carla and had two children, Nicole and Amy, who Marlis was incredibly proud of. Later on in life, Marlis enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, swimming, camping, gardening, taking care of her dog and baking/cooking the most delicious food to have ever touched your taste buds. Marlis was kind, caring, generous, warm and loving and was always there for her family. The lives of those who were lucky enough to know and spend time with her will forever be changed. She is survived by her son, daughter-in-law and two granddaughters, who will miss her greatly. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Black Creek Recreation Center (Black Creek Hall) on Sunday November 3rd from 1pm to 4 pm. Refreshments will be served. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to your favorite charity in Marlis’ name.

Spirit fair in Comox

Quickly becoming a hotbed for arts and culture in Comox, the Little Red Church will host the eighth Comox Valley Spirit Fair. This popular event put on by Mystic Vancouver Island showcases talented mediums, clairvoyants, readers and holistic practitioners from the Comox Valley and mid-Vancouver Island. It is an opportunity to get a taste of what different types of psychic readings and energy healings people do, to meet with likeminded people and sample homemade healthy snacks grown and prepared locally. Organizers have changed the format to have a two-day fair Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Oct. 20 from noon to 4 p.m. The church is located at 2182 Comox Ave. Admission is free. For more information, visit www.mysticvancouverisland. com. — Little Red Church

I was approached by a friend whose teenager had just been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. She had discovered that some driving schools offered specific driver training for new drivers that suffered from the disease. Was I aware of any driving school that offered a course like this in our part of British Columbia? Not only was I not aware, I had never considered this question in relation to a new driver. I do touch on it briefly in the driving seminar that I do with Vancouver Island University’s Elder College program but I had always thought about it in terms of end-stage diabetic health problems. Difficulty with eyesight, nerve damage and peripheral circulation problems do interfere with someone’s ability to drive safely but are more common in the elderly.
