POPULAR CHRISTMAS EVENT

Walk now good to go After taking a year off, the Bethlehem walk is back JOHN HARDING editor@pqbnews.com

The Bethlehem Walk returns this season after a one-year hiatus, a “gift to the community” from the Parksville Fellowship Baptist Church. This will be the 20th year of the event. In 2011, more than 10,000 people wandered through the period-accurate displays that depict life as it was in the town of Christ’s birth about 2,000 years ago. “It’s exciting for us at the church,” said Bethlehem Walk coordinator Gail Barbero, who estimates the event will employ the efforts of about 350 volunteers, including actors and singers. “It is our gift to the community.” Each night between 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Dec. 14-17, residents can enter the grounds of the church (550 Pym Street) and be greeted by actors playing roles like shepherds and shopkeepers, using elaborate sets and “introducing the people to the story of Christ,” said Barbero. There is also a special showing for young children and seniors on Dec. 16 from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. There is no admission fee to walk the grounds and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of Bethlehem as it would have been 2,000 years ago, through more than 40 booths set up with blacksmiths, bakers, tanners and other shopkeepers. There will be a choir, cookies, hot drinks and much more. “What we’re trying to do is take people back in time to Bethlehem,” said Barbero. “There is nothing to purchase and no admission fee.” A huge sleigh will be set up to take donations — both non-perishable food items and money — for the local Salvation Army. In 2011, visitors donated more than $12,000 and what was described as “many van loads” of food. See GLAD, page A6

ATTACK ON LIVESTOCK

Investigation continues in Hilliers JOHN HARDING editor@pqbnews.com

Regional District of Nanaimo staff continue their investigation into the alleged attack on sheep by a pack of dogs in the Hilliers area, but as of press time Monday there were no developments to report. The woman who contacted The NEWS about her sheep being slaughtered, a story which was picked up by provincial media, said Monday she is “not thrilled” with what she’s learned about the investigation or its pace. As reported in last Thursday’s edition of The NEWS, five sheep belonging to Amber Dawes were killed by dogs in Hilliers last week. Dawes, and others in the area, have said

there have been other incidents of livestock killed and harassed by dogs. Dawes said she continues to be concerned for the safety of both livestock and children in the area. Dawes, who used to operate a kennel, has seen the dogs she believes were the guilty of the latest attack numerous times, and she said they killed a number of her quail months previous. She identified the dogs as pit bulls. The regional district’s director of bylaw services said his staff is working through “quite a process” to ensure all actions by the local government are legal. “We know there is a lot of concern out there and we are working as hard as we can,” said Tom Armet.

stArtinG Point QB market now a year-round attraction LISSA ALEXANDER reporter@pqbnews.com

The Qualicum Beach Farmer’s Market will now supply food to residents all year round. The market will continue to have outdoor vendors on Veterans Way during the fall— 12 of them on average—, and the usual 24 vendors inside the Qualicum Community Centre. And sales will continue on throughout the winter. “So many of our vendors have indoor greenhouses we’re hoping to have produce year round,” said market manager Mini Shewchuk. On Saturday there was a variety of produce to buy from fresh lettuces to peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and squash, plus jams and jellies, coffee and tea, baked goods, flowers, pasta, oats and grains, eggs, meats and much more. The Farmer’s Market will take a break from December 21 to January 18, when vendors will resume sales of their local products.

Shoebox donations taken until Nov. 23 Operation Christmas Child, a project of the international Christian relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, is collecting shoeboxes for children in the developing world until Nov. 23. They are looking for any donations for inside the boxes, but specifically school supplies like pens, pencils, erasers, note books etc. and any non-liquid hygiene items like combs, brushes and soap. The donation stations are at most churches and Loonyrama beside Thrifty Foods. — NEWS Staff

Foster pArk event

Pumpkin walk is cancelled

Coombs Candy Walk also not happening this year LISSA ALEXANDER reporter@pqbnews.com

Although 1,200 people walked through the Pumpkin Walk at Foster Park last year, no one will be enjoying that event this year. That’s because it’s been cancelled due to the cost of insurance to protect the participants, volunteers and organizers. The popular Coombs Halloween Candy Walk has also been cancelled this year, because of a lack of volunteers. The pumpkin walk has been held for 17 years and started out with a few carved pumpkins by the neighbourhood children. Last year, there were over 300 pumpkins, many carved by middle school students in the area. The Friends of Foster Park Easter egg hunt was also cancelled this year for the same insurance reasons. Organizers say they hope to find a way to offer both events again next year. The Candy Walk drew children from around the region to walk down a themed walkway filled with decorations and complete with characters handing out candy. The event also included a hauntCheck future editions of ed house, cake The NEWS for a list of walk, concession Halloween events still and fireworks at planning to go forward the Coombs Fairgrounds in the past. There will be a number of events still happening around the region, from the Errington Pumpkin Trail to the Meadowood Park Halloween Spectacular. Stay tuned for a listing of spooky events coming up in The NEWS. • When Dave Wood, the managing broker at RE/MAX Anchor Realty in Qualiucm Beach heard the news about the cancellation of the Foster Park event, he reportedly contacted organizers to see if it could be saved. It may have been too late to save it this year, but Wood wants to let people know the Qualicum Beach Downtown Business Association is sponsoring a trick or treat event from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Children ages 12 and under who are in costume are encouraged to visit downtown businesses in Qualicum Beach at that time on Halloween Day.

Millions drop and take cover AUREN RUVINSKY

The Great Shakeout was said to be a success last Thursday in Parksville Qualicum Beach where schools and businesses took part in the world’s largest earthquake drill. Locals joined more than 24 million people around the world in the simultaneous drill meant to get people thinking about emergency preparation and give organizations a chance to test their plans. With an electronic announcement rather than actual shaking, City of

Parksville staff followed the drop, cover and hold on guideline, getting under tables and desks for 60 seconds. After evacuating the building, people returned to set up the emergency operations centre. Based in the Parksville Civic and Technology Centre forum — with other options in line if that was damaged — city staff and community experts including the emergency communications and emergency services volunteers arrived quickly and set up stations. Emergency coordinator Aaron Dawson previously said they would spend

time debriefing and fine tuning plans and actions after the drill, but in the moment everything appeared to work. He said the regular little glitches, where certain things are or where people should be, were exactly the reason they hold the annual drill. Everyone is encouraged to make sure their home, family and work is prepared for a large scale emergency with a minimum three day supply of essentials and a working plan. Check www.shakeoutbc.ca for lots of good information and contact your local fire department for local concerns.

Minister offers comment continued from page a1

“The next step could be seizure (of the dogs) but we need to satisfy all the legal requirements before we do that. We need to step through quite a process to do this right — there’s a lot involved.” There was some confusion last week about whether provisions of the Livestock Protection Act allowed someone like Dawes to shoot dogs who are attacking or threatening livestock on her property, although Dawes said that’s not something she wants to do. B.C. Minister of Agriculture Pat Pimm supplied The NEWS with a statement on Monday:

“Section 11.1 of the Livestock Act allows people to protect their livestock from dogs that are ‘running at large’ and ‘attacking or viciously pursuing livestock’,” said Pimm. “I can’t speak to the specifics of any one case. In general, the law is in place to protect animals from aggressive feral or domestic dogs. Should a person protect their livestock by shooting the dog, they must follow all firearm regulations and laws. In addition, cities, municipalities and regional districts have the ability to regulate ‘dangerous dogs’ (dogs that have threatened a person or domestic animal) through the Local Government Act.”

Glad to be up and running again continued from page a1

Last year, the church found it difficult to get all the volunteers it needed for the event, which had become a can’t-miss for locals during the holiday season.

“It’s not a bad thing to take a break sometimes,” said Barbero. “But we’re glad to be up and running again this year.”

LIVING WAGE

Group claims it’s now $17.30 That compares to $18.73 in Victoria, $19.62 in Vancouver AUREN RUVINSKY writer@pqbnews.com

The Living Wage in Parksville Qualicum Beach has gone up 2.1 per cent in 2013 to $17.30, according to District 69 Living Wage Committee chair Bill Preston. A living wage is defined as the hourly wage that two working parents with young children must earn to cover the real costs of raising a family. This is calculated as the hourly rate at which a family can meet its basic expenses (including rent, child care, food and transportation), after government taxes, credits, deductions and subsidies have been taken into account. “The living wage lifts families out of poverty, but it’s based on a bare-bones budget without the extras many of us take for granted,” said Preston. “It doesn’t cover debt repayments for credit card bills or student loans, and it doesn’t allow the family to save for retirement or for their children’s education.” The $17.30 figure is meant for the local economy, compared to $18.73 in Victoria and $19.62 in Vancouver, said Preston. Child care and food costs are a couple of the big drivers of the living wage increase. Child care costs rose by $35/month, and increasing food prices added another $16.13/month.

Dogs or kids?

T

here are many directions that reactions to stories we publish can go, some predictable, some not so much. When we publish stories about health care issues —regardless of whether they tell a good story or bad — we will get reactions from all sides of the spectrum. Since health care is such a political hot potato in our system, the reactions often fall along those lines. Health-care stories also induce passionate reactions from those who know how difficult it can be to work in the front lines of our hospitals and clinics. All of the reactions, we like to believe, are helpful, if not in improving the system, then at least to allow people to vent, share their stories, blow off steam and look for some kind of support or provide a boost for those who work so hard in our health-care system. Present a story about dogs on the attack and the reaction is somewhat predictable, too. There have been many comments made about the story we presented on the front-page Thursday (‘Pit bulls attacking’). The angry comments seem to come from those who want to defend pit bulls and say how irresponsible it was for us to single out the breed. First, it’s important to note the dogs in question are pit bulls and they have a history in the Hilliers area. If they were labs, or rottweilers or beagles we would have written the story and headline as such. There’s an old saying about being specific in journalism: don’t write bird if you can write duck; don’t write duck if you can write mallard. One of the sources who told us what breed the alleged attackers are is a former kennel operator. What we find disappointing is the focus of the anger about this story, the reason people are calling us all kinds of nasty names. Let’s forget for a moment the breed of these dogs. Why isn’t the anger about the situation more focused on the safety concerns for children who walk in the area to get the bus to school? Or the toll on the livelihoods of farmers who are losing their stock? Yes, we realize acts like those in Hilliers are not exclusive to one breed. And we understand that often it’s an issue related to the owners, not the dogs. But seriously, is this an instance where defending a breed of dogs is appropriate? — Editorial by John Harding

Letters OHC Unimpressive I am so not impressed with the new urgent care facility at the Oceanside Health Centre (OHC). I work in a care facility in Qualicum Beach and left work at 3 p.m. and waited for more than two hours at the centre, without being seen. How ridiculous that we have a new facility that has cost taxpayers more money, and it is worse than the walk in clinic we had before. What a joke and a waste of taxpayers’ money. I walked out. Sheila RobeRtS Qualicum Beach

OHC dysfUnCtiOn

Re: ‘Wait-time complaints mounting at Oceanside Health Centre’, Oct. 17 edition of The NEWS. What has and is happening at the Oceanside Health Centre is scandalous. As far as what has happened, simply talk to your general practitioner and entice him/ her, as I have, to provide you with some background to the dysfunctional process which lead up to the OHC. VIHA neglected to consult with doctors in the area as to what would really be required, regarding the services the OHC should provide. No consultation on the layout of the facility, regarding space requirements to perform an effective service, and, effectively, totally ignoring what practicing physicians would consider even minimal requirements. It would appear VIHA and the B.C. Liberals feel their qualifications supersede those most involved in the medical field. This spring, the then-director promised

QUOtable:

“It is our gift to the community.” Gail baRbaRo see story page a1

almanaC Government Contacts prOvinCial:

the facility would be fully staffed with doctors by mid-September. Surprise ... there is now only one doctor available at a time and look at the wait times. A retirement, at least that’s what we are told, ensued and a new director takes the reins. If you are a doctor in your own practice, would you enthusiastically agree to leave your practice, wherein you bill the system for your services on a patient by patient fee, or would you hire on at the OHC for a fixed salary regardless of the number of patients you saw? Anyone with an IQ above seven could easily figure out why there isn’t a full compliment of doctors at the facility. Why are we not surprised at yet another bureaucratic/political blunder ... at our expense.

In fact, when I tried to reach my doctor, who has been away for extended periods these past months, I was told by the receptionist to go to “the new walk-in clinic in Parksville”  if I needed to be seen by a doctor before he returned again in three weeks time. Upon my arrival at the OHC, I was disheartened to find two very full waiting rooms (occupied by some patients who were quite elderly and infirm) and a threeplus hours waiting period for the one doctor on duty. I must say that if VIHA can provide neither walk-in clinic services nor treatment for emergency or trauma in the area, then they continue to do the people of Oceanside a huge disservice.

Editor John Harding will probably get a fair bit of feedback on his front-page story in Thursday’s edition of The NEWS (‘Pit bulls attacking’). In my humble opinion, it was irresponsible for you to run the story under that headline without any evidence that the breed of dogs attacking was, in fact, pit bull. Whatever the breed, it is the owner of the dogs who should be held criminally responsible. Dogs allowed to run wild will become wild dogs. Re: Harding’s other front-page story that day about the Oceanside Health Centre, I would also like to point out to VIHA’s Valerie Wilson that the residents of Oceanside were led to believe that, since our walk-in clinic was shut down, those services would be provided at the Oceanside Health Center.

I see that Parksville city-council types are still talking about narrowing the highway through town. What a backwards move. If to slow down traffic is the motive, even more counterproductive could be to make people only use horse and buggy, then nobody would bother coming into town — mission accomplished. Also being talked about is having a casino to make money. Casinos don’t make any new money, they just redirect existing money from more important things like children’s lunches, paying down the mortgage, etc. The marijuana idea might be less offensive — at least it’s a form of farming.

News’ Pitt bull treatmeNt uNfair I am writing this to express my dismay and concern about your chosen approach to the livestock death article in Friday’s paper. That type of reporting is nothing but blatant fear mongering about an already misunderstood and discriminated breed of dog. Anyone who is remotely familiar with the pit bull breed is aware of how loyal, loving and smart these dogs are. The headline in the Friday’s edition was nothing more than a personal opinion and an abuse of position. I am the proud owner of a Staffordshire Terrier who has never looked sideways at either of my young children, my cats or my chickens. We were breed specific when adopting as they are well know to be great with children. She is not our first bully breed dog nor will she be our last. It was very disappointing and inappropriate that it was not said until the last paragraph of the story that other breeds of dogs have been the culprits of similar acts. The racoons who killed some of my chickens in June didn’t make the front page. Rebecca Sharp Parksville

I read editor John Harding’s frontpage story regarding those wild animals that have killed those sheep (‘Pit bulls attacking’, Oct. 15 edition of The NEWS) — it has been a while but it is still disturbing me. The story stated “officers are investigating.” Could someone tell me what they are investigating? Are they questioning the sheep, if by any chance they have provoked the attack? Or are they investigating the owners as to why those pit bulls allegedly became such monsters? I do know that had the attack been by a cougar or another form of wild animal, every wildlife officer would be out there to hunt it down and kill it. What is the difference between two wild animals? I do know pit bulls. I had one that was a pussy cat. It is a matter of how you train them. My say is to put these ones down before the taste of blood makes them turn on kids. As for the owner — he/she/they should also be held responsible to at least pay a heavy fine and pay for the animals to be killed. Gyula BaGi Qualicum Beach

dCCs ONly fair Look up “development costs British Columbia” on Google and it is clear that the developer is expected to pay for development cost charges before

any preparatory work is done on the site.  If the Clarion developer paid the $1 million for the DCCs, each of the condo units would cost about $20,000 of the total and the developer’s $1 million payment would probably be less than 10 per cent of his total costs. He would get back all his expenses with the sale of the units. The various types of DCCs are all estimates and are intended to be close to the actual costs incurred by the town. Thus, the money has to come from somewhere else. Money to run the town, in essence, comes from business and property taxes, so the latter could be a logical source for paying the $1 million. Taxes are complex in detail, but it is possible to get some ballpark figures for what could happen in Qualicum Beach.  If the average home here is assessed at $400,000, the total annual taxes will be around $3,000 and the town’s share of this will be about $1,400. If a million-dollar expense is shared by property owners, it will add more than $200 to this total. If the town follows this route, it will, at the very least, in my opinion, be an unethical act, because provincial regulations state that existing taxpayers cannot be charged with the costs of a development.

NrGH trOubles I would like to share a small part of our experience at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital. My husband has been home for the past month. Prior to that he spent 103 days in hospital. I don’t have the space here to relate all our problems/concerns. I’ll just focus on two frustrating and challenging items. During his stay we dealt with between 30-35 doctors. Each one would prescribe tests, change medications, etc. A few days later another doctor would order different tests, alter medications. It was impossible to keep track of what was happening. The nurses couldn’t relate test results. Unless you were at the hospital when the doctor came to the patient’s room you didn’t know test results or what changes had been made to the medications. It was beyond my comprehension why I couldn’t get any information. Finally, I contacted the Patient Care Quality Office (in Victoria) and they were able to make arrangements for me to get updated information. Due to my husband’s lengthy stay and his lack of mobility, he developed an ulcerated heel. The bandage was changed twice a week. I only actually saw it three times. The skin was black and the smell was putrid. The bandage was removed, some sort of cream/ointment was applied and then re-bandaged. Since I have no medical knowledge and since I trust-

ed the medical staff, I assumed this was correct procedure. On the day he was discharged from hospital, a doctor cleaned out the infection and now he is at home with a very deep heel wound, which we are told, will take five-eight months to heal. We now have home care nurses three times a week dressing the wound. The home care nurses are by far the best part of our experience with VIHA. I have learned a lot from this experience and I will certainly be more pro-active and questioning the next time around. Cathryn Bolton Qualicum Beach

PiPeliNe CONCerNs I wandered by the development that is happening on the site of Corfield and the old highway. While watching the tanks being installed it reinforced my concern about pipelines. Here we have an excellent example of how to do it correctly. The contractors are installing underground fuel tanks to very exacting standards. The tanks are double lined to minimize any spill by identifying a leak, from the inner tank, prior to it being lost into the environment. If this is the norm for small fuel storage in B.C., is this the standard for fuel pipelines where the potential for environmental damage is far greater? Will this technique be used in a fuel line to an airport or loading facility for shipping? If it is not the accepted standard why isn’t it? Concerned people should contact your local MLA and MP to ensure this safety feature must be a requirement on all future fuel lines and tanks in BC., including old lines and tanks that are upgraded.

A couple weeks ago, now-former assistant editor Neil Horner told me of the reasons why he had made up his mind to leave The NEWS, so the final Horner’s Corner column (Oct. 17) was not really a shock. Since Horner arrived here several years ago, his reporting has been of the very highest standard. I always enjoyed his Shipping News column that he introduced, and each week I looked forward to his Horner’s Corner column. The column was sometimes political, sometimes serious, sometimes hilarious, sometimes very personal, but always extremely entertaining, thought-provoking and well-written. Now he leaves for the noblest of reasons, to care for his parents, all that’s really left to say is fare thee well, Naughty Neil, we’re gonna miss you. Bernie smith Parksville

COMING TO QUALICUM BAY NOV. 2-3

Calibre of talent for Expo is ‘impressive’ Entrance to the Expo is by a donation to the food bank BRENDA GOUGH NEWS Contributor

A smorgasbord for art lovers is just around the corner with the fifth annual Island Arts Expo in Qualicum Bay November 2 and 3. Showcasing over 20 West Coast artists the expo features an art show and sale, workshops and demonstrations, entertainment and raffles. Susan Schaefer who creates her own vibrant, acrylic and water colour paintings of landscapes and seascapes initiated the Expo five years ago. The owner of Young at Art Studios and publisher of Island Arts Magazine said what started as a vision to bring area artists together to network and share ideas with other like-minded people on the Island art scene has grown into an annual event that attracts some high calibre artists. Schaefer said scoring Tofino artist Mark Hobson as a special

guest speaker and exhibitor is very exciting. “It is a big coup … he is a world-renowned artist and a great guy. To have that calibre of talent at our show is impressive,” she said. Schaefer said they have a juried entry for the Expo and with so many really good artists in the area they couldn’t accommodate all of them. “This year we had more applications than ever and there is a very long waiting list which is nice just in case some one has to pull out at the last minute.” Errington pastel artist Dan Gray will be among the esteemed artists conducting workshops and on Saturday will present Soft Pastel from Life. Gray said he is hoping to have a willing model who will be on hand for a portrait and he will explain the technical aspects of creating a pastel from life from the initial response to the subject through the building of the work. Other speakers include: Peter Spohn; Michael Schutte; Patt Scrivener; Greg Swainson and several other notable presenters covering a wide range of topics.

NeWS FILe PHOTO

Always painting from live models, pastel artist Dan Gray is well known for his ‘en plein’ air landscapes and can often be found at many of the area’s beaches capturing life on the shoreline. He is also accomplished at painting people and will be sharing some of expertise on the subject at a one of the many workshops at the Island Arts expo November 2 and 3 in Qualicum Bay.

Schaefer said the two-day event at the Lighthouse Community Centre in Qualicum Bay is also a great opportunity to chat with the artists who are selling their work. “This is a good time to purchase art work, or sit in a work-

shop and talk to artists and learn about the process. It is a lot of fun for the whole family. There is music and food … it is a great atmosphere. Entrance to the Expo is by donation to the food bank. Last year, the event collected 971

pounds of groceries and just over $2,000 for the local food bank. Hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. For a complete list of exhibitors and workshops visit the website at www.islandartsexpo.ca.

Exploration is such a feast

“I feel comfortable going back and seeing my favourite places but I also like exploring new areas because it is such a feast.” She will also be visiting Peru for the first time and although she won’t be painting while she is there she said she will take a lot of pictures which will eventually be the subject of some paintings. Collectors are drawn to the warmth and vibrant colours of Campbell’s paintings and recently she was featured as an “artist to collect” in a 20-page article in the prestigious Arabella Fine Art and Design magazine. Campbell said she was thrilled to be featured in such a wonderful Canadian magazine which showcased 20 of her paintings. “It is something an artist dreams of. Because it has such a big distribution we got a lot of inquires about my art from all over North America,” she explained. When Campbell isn’t painting she is kayak-

Melville’s classic Moby Dick is next BRENDA GOUGH

NEWS Contributor

It is not only children who enjoy being told a great story and the McMillan Arts Centre (MAC) is hoping for a good turnout for their next presenter in the Tales for the Telling series. Moby Dick, a novel by Herman Melville, first published in 1851, is one of the most widely-read and respected books in American literature and will be presented by Dean Verger on Oct. 25. Moby Dick recounts the adventures of the narrator Ishmael as he sails on the whaling ship Pequod under the command of Captain Ahab. Blending high-seas romantic adventure, symbolic allegory, and the conflicting ideals of heroic determination and undying hatred, the saga of Captain Ahab and his unrelenting pursuit of Moby Dick, the great white whale who maimed him during their last encounter wasn’t always a favourite of Verger. The nationally known story teller says in fact he stayed away from the novel for a long time. “When I went through the novel I discovered

Errington Therapeutic Riding Association

The main objective of this workshop is to improve your understanding of the principles of pain management and its treatments, introduce different methods to cope with chronic pain, and show how to take an active role in your own pain management.  Participants have the chance to learn new information and skills, that will complement conventional treatments and programs, discuss ideas and share experiences with others that have chronic pain such as arthritis.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

A special thank you to the following businesses…

Last, but certainly not least, our thanks and utmost appreciation to the ETRA volunteers who continue to help make this annual event an outstanding success,

to my surprise that there was humor mixed into the darkness of the story. There is the morality tale that people wrote about in the1850’s. There was always a moral weave happening behind the scenes.” “Herman does that in Moby Dick, but he also plays pranks and tells jokes,” Verger explained and added, “Even in Shakespeare there is humor and slapstick.” Verger came to the world of storytelling as a writer. He began by telling his own original works, then added traditional and literary tales for all ages to his repertoire. “I formed a writing group and from there I started performing my stories from memory in front of audiences. Then I found out about storytelling as an art form and took a course. I continued on with my research into history and literature from everything from folk tales to historical tales to the great literary works.” Tales for the Telling featuring Verger goes at 7:30 p.m. on October 25 at the MAC. Tickets are $10 and available at Fireside Books in Parksville.

ing in the protected tranquil waters at her doorstep which deeply influence her paintings. “The sea is all around me. I do a lot of little day trips because we live in such a beautiful world and there is a lot to see. We also have a trawler and we go boating and exploring. I love just meandering up and down the coast discovering beautiful inlets. I am interested in aboriginal art and culture and spiritually having that connection via water.” Her medium is water colour, gouache, oil, and a mixed media of gold leaf, fabric, and pen and ink and most of her paintings are completed in one sitting of often six or more hours. “I have friends who are artists and spend a month on a painting … that is not my style. When I begin a painting it is blossoming and I stay with the blossom until it is finished.” Campbell will also be bringing copies of her her newest coffee table book with over 100 pages and more than 80 vivid images.

29th annual event

Karen E. Stewart

Book sale attracts young and old Winter’s coming — time to stock up on some reading material

A good book brings enjoyment to everyone, whether young or old. Find your favourite kind of book at the 29th annual used book sale organized by the Parksville Qualicum Club of the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUWPQ) on Oct. 25. With winter soon upon us, now is the time to stock up with books for those long winter evenings. The sale will be at a new location in the Pavilion at Morningstar Golf Course, 525 Lowry’s Road in Parksville on Oct. 25-26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Book browsers will be able to enjoy the beauty of the golf-course setting and have the opportunity to take refreshments at the restaurant. Buyers can choose from a wide selection of sorted books at bargain prices, mostly one or two dollars each. Proceeds from the sale help provide financial assistance to local women with their post-secondary education. Last year, CFUWPQ donated $13,000 in scholarships and bursaries. Once again, the club is relying on the community to come and support the book sale to help meet its fundraising goal for this year.

Try some world beats for Halloween LISSA ALEXANDER

Take a cultural journey this Halloween as DJ Marc Fournier spins world beats at the Errington Hall October 26. Known musically as Electropical, Fournier is a DJ and music journalist who has weekly columns on French CBC and writes reviews and articles for Songlines Magazine in the United Kingdom. On CBC he presents Music and Revolution with music that is intertwined with the history of a country or region, and he programs and presents a fourhour show on Saturday mornings with music from around the world. Fourni-

er also speaks six languages and has lived in many countries in Europe and Africa. In his home city of Vancouver, Fournier co-presents a monthly World Music Dance party at the Backstage Lounge on Granville Island with DJ Michael Laycock, a 10-year old collaboration they call Electropical. The duo plays an eclectic mix of urban sounds with a tropical edge and invites a different guest percussionist every month. They usually get around 200 enthusiastic dancers at that event. Fournier said every show he presents is different, but he will probably spin some Reggae and music from Lat-

in America, the Balkans and Africa at the Errington Hall. He also says he is excited about some other music currently making waves around the world. “The music coming out from Colombia these days is incredible: rootsy, danceable and funky!” he said in an e-mail. “I also love the Aboriginal electronic scene right now. So much good music!” Tickets for the show are $15 from the Errington Store, Cranky Dog Music in Parksville and Heaven on Earth in Qualicum Beach. For more on Fournier and Electropical visit www.electropical.ca.

visiting, and non-medical transportation, are provided free of charge, while fees for other services are based on a sliding scale, based on ability to pay. “The premise of the program is to help seniors in our community live independently in their own homes, close to their friends and neighbours, where they are most comfortable,” said Jane Williams, Oceanside Better at Home Coordinator at SOS. “We have a team of friendly and dedicated volunteers as well as screened, paid contractors who are happy to be of help to our seniors.”

Williams adds that many children and grandchildren have inquired about the program on behalf of their parents and relatives, and she is happy to reach out to those who may be too proud to ask for help. “We recognize our seniors as an important part of community, and supporting their independence enriches all of our lives.” said Renate Sutherland, executive director of SOS. Seniors 65 and over, who feel they may benefit from the services can call Williams at SOS, 250248-2093. — Submitted by SOS

It was a thing of beauty when 386 dozen roses were delivered to Fresh and Fabulous in Qualicum Beach on Thursday. The Qualicum Beach flower and gift shop (owner Curt Kallai is pictured above) brought the roses in for the Rotary Club of Qualicum Beach Sunrise’s Roses from Rotary fundraiser initiative. The Rotary Club used to order the roses from a big box store but when the local flower shop asked them to consider supporting local they took up the offer. The roses were boxed and arranged by Rotarians on Saturday at Pheasant Glen Golf Course, then delivered around the community to those who ordered them.

Trying to change the dependency on tourism The economy of Parksville, like it or not, is driven by our success as a tourist destination. The Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce and its business community partners are working to change that dependence through an economic development plan that includes the attraction of new non-tourism business. Despite the need to diversify our economy, it is crucial that we be the best at what we are, and right now we are a small community economically reliant on tourism.

Fun, festive way to support VIU The event concludes with a black-tie gala Nov. 29

Imagine the magical moment when the twinkle lights go on, decorations sparkle, and the crowd applauds as your team’s Christmas tree is illuminated for the first time in VIU’s 19th Annual Festival of Trees. “We’re inviting community groups, organizations and businesses throughout Nanaimo to enter the TD Community Tree Decorating Challenge this year,” says Jason Nelson, chair of the Festival of Trees. “This event is a wonderful holiday tradition in Nanaimo, and an opportunity to bring your group together to create your tree masterpiece.” Decorated trees will go on display at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre Nov. 21 through 29, with the public invited to view them, vote for their favourite, and purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win one of the trees. With a month left until the set-up day for trees at the VICC on Saturday, Nov. 16, there’s time to get your group together, decide on a theme, and get to work on a fun, festive project. “There’s always a healthy, spirited competition,” says Nelson. “We encourage entrants to get together to brainstorm, and choose a theme that shows imagination and creativity. Think about how your tree can represent your organization.” A long list of potential tree theme ideas can be found on the Festival of Trees website at www.viu.ca/festival, along with guidelines for making the most of the experience. An elegant or traditional theme might be the right inspiration, or consider the possibilities of decorating a tree to depict Christmas in a foreign land, show off a favourite hobby or sport, or include memorabilia from a bygone era. With more than 4,000 community members expected to view the trees, the Tree Decorating Challenge is an opportunity to network in a fun, festive environment, says Nelson. It’s also a chance to support VIU, with proceeds

going to support students and their learning. Community members who come through “Festival Grove” at the VICC will be invited to vote for their favourite tree between Nov. 21 and 25. The team with the winning tree will receive two tickets to the Festival of Trees Gala Event on Nov. 29. The public will be invited to attend the RBC Tree Light Up Reception on Nov. 21; tickets are $30 each. Public Tree Viewing Days, with admission by

Working with up to 25 other volunteers, Redford and his team manage the hatchery all the way from capturing the brood stock to releasing the new stock into French Creek.  Thanks to this work, 30,000 Coho salmon fry and 10,000 Chum salmon fry are released into the creek each year. “There is something special about a few giving selflessly of their time to help keep our oceans stocked,” said David Mellor, a volunteer with DUC’s Oceanside chapter. “This Wetlands Conservation Award is very deserving.” The hatchery also works with eight local schools to give students a handson look at salmon production. The children look after “eyed” eggs for

three weeks, after which they are returned to the hatchery, letting students watch the process for themselves.   Redford will be presented with his DUC Community Conservation Award at the Oceanside DUC 75th Anniversary Gala on November 9th at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.  For tickets or more information, call Wayne Pritchard 250-757-8978.  Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is the leader in wetland conservation.

Myhres-Sigrid Johanna (nee Bostad)

On October 15th Sigrid peacefully completed her life’s journey at home surrounded by her children. Born in Ulsteinvik, Norway in 1921, Sigrid came to Canada in 1929 and spent many years in Cold Lake, AB where she married Morgan Myhres in 1938. After several years in Terrace BC they moved to Deep Bay where they lived for over thirty years and were well known for their community involvement in the Legion and 4-H. They were avid gardeners and regularly won the annual gardening prize at the Bowser Fall Fair. Predeceased by Morgan in 1997, Sigrid had been a resident of Parksville since the mid-1990s. Mother to six, Grandma to sixteen, Great Grandma to twentyseven, Great-great Grandma to one and beloved Auntie to many, Sigrid loved her family and was dearly loved by them. Besides her family, Sigrid’s passion was gardening and she will be fondly remembered in her gardening hat surrounded by her beautiful flowers and bountiful garden. Sigrid also enjoyed travelling the world with her family and friends. Survived by her children Mabel(Albert), Leon(Pearl), Caroline (Stan), Lillian (Ted), Tito (Lynda) and Shelley (Shah), and their families; sister Lise and brother Art and nieces and nephews. Mom, we love you and miss you already. A Celebration of Life reception and tea was held on Monday October 21, 2013 at the Bowser Legion Hall, where Sigrid and Morgan spent many evenings dancing the night away. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

NORRIS, A. Michael H. Norris of Qualicum Beach, BC • 1922-2013

Michael or “Mick� was born January 7th, 1922, in Hendon, London, England. Michael was a Flight Sergeant Navigator in the RAF during WW11, a Professional Civil Engineer as well as an accomplished Artist, a Draftsman, an Elder, a Freemason, Legionnaire, and dear father and friend. Michael met Grace in 1944 and they were married August 17, 1945. The family lived and worked in England before sailing to Canada, arriving 1953. They resided in the Maritimes until 1968 when the family moved to Edmonton, AB. They raised three children: Linda, David, and Sheila. Michael and Grace retired and moved to Qualicum Beach in 1985. They were happily married for 61+ years until Grace’s passing in January 2007. Michael designed, drew plans, and supervised the building of the family homes in the Maritimes and on Vancouver Island, a summer cottage in Alberta, as well as two sailboats. During his career with CMHC, he was Program Manager, and was responsible for building and infrastructure projects in the Maritimes and Northern Canada. Michael loved swimming (earning swimming certificates from 2007-2010 and also entered the Qualicum Beach Mile Swim several times), horseback riding, and cycling. He loved nature and walks by the ocean. He liked to write, has written his wartime memoirs, and enjoyed entertaining others with his storytelling. He volunteered his time pursuing charitable work such as gathering shoes to send to Nicaragua and was instrumental in coordinating the donations to save the QB Heritage Forest. His other passions included music, singing, playing the piano (including playing for residents in a care facility), aircraft and flying, travel, and a fondness for ice cream! Michael was well loved and will be dearly missed by Linda (Chuck), David (Celia), Sheila, Trevor (Kamla), Melanie (deceased), Devin (Shannon), Brynn (Keith), Hayley (Dylan), and great granddaughter Charlotte. He will be fondly remembered for his warmth, kindness, generosity, and integrity by family, friends, and relatives in Canada and overseas. Michael was a true gentleman, well respected, who loved God, family, friends and valued all life. M.I.Z.P.A.H. (May The Lord Watch Between Me and Thee While We Are Absent One From Another) On behalf of Michael, the family would like to express their appreciation to the staff of Hawthorne Place, V.I.H.A. Home & Community Care, and Trillium Lodge for all their support.

A celebration of life memorial service for Michael was held at St. Columba Presbyterian Church, Parksville on October 16th, 2013. Donations in Michael’s memory may be made to any worthy charity of your choice.

Kondors find the net through the fog KSS team takes a big 6-2 win in QB while Ballenas loses close one to Dover JAMES CL ARKE

sports@pqbnews.com

It may have been foggy but the Kondors still fed the net. Kwalikum Secondary School’s senior boys soccer team ran the table on its regular season last Thursday, beating the Woodlands Golden Eagles 6-2 in a hardfought match played out in a real peasouper. In action at a socked-in Qualicum Beach Rec Fields, the Kondors came out charging and opened the scoring 10 minutes in when junior call-up Blair Stewart parked one top shelf. Woodlands drew even shortly after on a defensive giveaway, but KSS countered with two quick goals from Luiz Lima and Austin Phye for a 3-1 Kondors lead at the half. Lima clicked again early in the second half to up Kwalikum’s lead to 4-1, Woodlands countered to pull to within two, but that would be as close as they’d get, as Lima potted his third of the game and Bryce Wilson rounded out the scoring.  “It was a little disorientating,” Kondors’ coach Butch Gayton said of the fog. “We moved the ball well, but any direct play, any long balls, were tough to fully see, and I noticed the kids were running out of bounds every once in a while. “They were gritty. It was a rough game — some bad blood carried over from last year,” Gayton said   “That’s probably the worst fog I’ve ever officiated in,” said the game’s head ref, Darren Gaudreault, a familiar face on local pitches who has been calling matches for some 20 years.   ‘It was definitely unusual, it was difficult to see because we had a bit of sun poking through the clouds too, so turning towards the north it was difficult to see a

lot of the play. It was just a weird combination of weather (and) it made for a more challenging game to officiate for sure, plus they both had dark coloured jerseys on, which made it even worse.” Kwalikum’s new keeper Daniel Grant wasn’t tested often but he came up with some clutch saves when called upon. The win put the Kondors at 4-0-1 on the season and secures them the top seed heading into the eight-team North Is-

land championships slated for Oct. 29-30, being hosted by KSS at Merle Logan Turf Fields in Nanaimo. The top five advance to the Island finals Nov. 5-6 at the University of Victoria. This is the second straight year the Kondors have finished top of the table in their nine-team AA North Island league, but the local side is hoping to amend last season when the Kondors finished a disappointing fourth in the Islands and failed

to advance to the B.C. championships for the first time in years. “The two most important tournaments are coming up (the North Islands and Islands),” said Gayton. “It’s   going to be tough to get to the B.C.s — there are five or six very strong teams on the Island.” MEANWHILE DOWN THE ROAD that same afternoon, Ballenas’ senior boys soccer team was handed a tough 4-3 loss by the Dolphins from Dover in their final regular season game. Tied 1-1 at half, Dover scored the winning goal with about 15 minutes left. Ian Whibley scored all three Whalers’ goals.  “We had a few really great chances in the last few minutes, they had to clear it off the goal line (and) their goalie made a great save one of Ian’s breakaways,” said BSS coach Alli Bach, adding the Whalers “played great and had a lot of pressure in the first half. Some mistakes defending set pieces cost us a couple goals.” The loss puts the Whalers at 3-2 in league play (one of those wins by default) with a home game Thursday against Brentwood College to determine seeding (third/fourth) for the North Island’s. IN OTHER ACTION, Kwalikum’s Jr Boys team capped off its perfect regular season with a 3-nil win over their counterparts from Dover. Luke Walker,  Miguel Gil Oliva  and Stewart scored for KSS, which went 5-0 in league play, and now turns its attention to the eight-team North Island playdowns in Courtenay this Wednesday and Thursday. The top three teams advance to the Island championships in Mill Bay Oct. 3031.

Generals refreshed with reinforcements JAMES CL ARKE

sports@pqbnews.com

Reinforcements have arrived, and though still early in the process, as promised, the Save-OnFoods Oceanside Generals were a better looking team on the weekend. At home at ‘The Place for back-to-back VIJHL tilts with a new head coach and five new players, the Gens gave their fans renewed hope. On Saturday, the last place Generals got another outstanding performance from their 17-year-old goalie Liam Giroux and snapped an eight-game winless streak with a 5-3 win over the Campbell River Storm, who are tied for third overall in the nine-

team league. Back at it Sunday with newly-acquired ‘tender Evgueni Makarski from Toronto between the pipes, the Generals duelled the Comox Valley Glacier Kings to a scoreless tie through two-plus periods but came up on the short end of a 3-0 final. On Saturday, the Generals swept the game’s three star selection. Giroux stopped 36 of 39 shots and was named the first star. Shifty new forward Wyatt Petryshen struck for two goals, including the winner, in his debut with the Gens and earned the second star, and QB blueliner Liam Peel was third star.   Sunday was the Glacier Kings’

third straight win. Peel earned third star honours for his efforts. Comox scored what would prove to be the winner 5:25 into the final frame, then netted the insurance marker at 16:55 and added an empty netter as the buzzer sounded. “I’m very impressed with the other side,” Comox head coach Joey Ewing said after the game. “I think with the new coaching and the guys they brought in, it was a whole new ball game for us. They’ve improved 10-fold already — we had a real hard time breaking through their defence today. “I know (Dan) Lemmon, he’s a defensive guy, and he did a

great job with them in only two practices, so I’m kinda scared for next time.” Meanwhile down the hall, Makarski said “it felt good to get back out there, disappointed with the result though. We needed that W, but we’ll come back hard next game.” His last game was about a week ago. “It’s a pretty good pace out there, it’s a solid league from what I’ve seen so far,” he said of the VIJHL.  “It’s been a lot of plane rides and a lot of sitting around the past week, so it was good to get moving again.” After the game the Gens’ new coach Dan Lemmon said it felt

good to be behind the bench and he likes what he sees.  “I thought both games the kids competed. We worked real hard; obviously with so many new faces in the lineup it’s hard to go over systems and what not,” pointing out two of the five new players got in one practice with their new team last week (his first week at the helm) and the other three jumped right in. “So I  just wanted the kids to keep it simple and start from the defensive zone out. Obviously we gave up a few shots in both games but we tested our goalkeepers and I though both our goalies were really good this weekend.” See poStive, page A36

Whalers sting Hornets JAMES CL ARKE sports@pqbnews.com

Parksville’s unranked Ballenas Whalers  put together a convincing AA non-conference varsity football victory on home field Saturday when they  harpooned the Top-10 ranked Frank Hurt Hornets from Surrey 48-19. The Whalers opened the scoring on their opening drive with an electrifying 80-yard touchdown pass and run from pivot Garrin McDonnell to Scott Childs, who beat the defender and ran it in down the sideline. Childs is the top-ranked receiver in AA football in B.C. The Whalers went up 14-0 on the next series when Coltin Laplante punched it in from two yards out, but the Hornets responded with a touchdown after the Whalers fumbled in their own end. The visitors recovered the ensuing kickoff and scored again to cut it to 14-13 — Ballenas blocked the extra point. The Whalers kept it going to start the second quarter when Tyson Nerbus caught a fouryard TD pass in the back of the end zone, and Cobby Stubbins hauled in a 23 yard TD pass from McDonnell for a 28-13 Whalers’ lead at the half.  Ballenas scored on their first play from scrimmage to start the second half when AJ Messner broke free for a 57yard TD. Thomas Franks added two TD runs of seven and 53 yards. The Hornets lone second-half touchdown came on a kick-off return. Messner, a Grade 11 student, finished the game with a season-high 224 yards on 17 carries and the major, and earned big props from his head coach. “AJ is a great example of how it’s not the biggest guys who are the best players but how those with the biggest hearts,” said Jeremy Conn. “He is a great student of the game who stepped up at running back and has really been able to learn how to take four-yard runs and turn them into 40yard runs with the right read

and cuts.” Laplante had 96 yards on 10 carries, and Franks 64 yards on three touches. McDonnell, a Grade 10 quarterback, was 6-of-10 in passing for 149 yards and three TD passes. Childs led the way with three catches for 108 yards receiving and the TD.  McDonnell was also 6-for-7 on extra point kicks. On defense, the Whalers were relieved to see the Hornets starting running back  Bashiru Sise-Odaa did not dress for the game, which allowed them to focus on pressuring QB Josh Zivny.  Laplante had eight tackles and a sack; Stubbins had eight tackles; Josh Bouchard seven tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery; Childs had five tackles and a 34-yard interception return, and Brock Mould added two tackles and a sack.  “Overall that was a very good game for us,” Conn said after the game, pointing out the team was able to execute a balanced offensive attack “and made adjustments on defense at the half that were effective.” NEXT UP: Both Ballenas’ football teams have two regu-

Positive games after rough start to season coNtiNued from page a33

The Generals were outshot 39-22 overall Friday against the Storm, and 13-2 in the third period Saturday and 32-17 overall against Comox. “Overall I think it’s a positive, positive, first two games, and we’ll keep working away at some systems and make sure these kids are ready to go for next week,” said Lemmon. In the meantime, Generals GM Lou Gravel confirmed he’s hoping to have news of more new signings this week. “All the kids are competing for jobs on the team right now and it’s nice to see. They’re all stepping up right now and all competing for spots, so it’s an exciting time for the organization,” said Lemmon. “It’ll be nice to get a week of practice in with these new guys; seeing some tendencies and who can play with who. There’ll be a lot of movement in the lineup the next couple days.” As for his new goalie: “Makarski played real good for us today. He kept us in it the entire game, he gave us a chance to win, and that’s all you can ask for. A very good start for him, and it’s good news for us because now we

have two goalies I think are real good goalies in this league and can be a nice one-two punch.” On Sunday, the Generals tailed off in the last half of the game and had trouble matching Comox’ speed, but that too is something Lemmon says he plans on addressing. GAME ON: The 2-13-1 Generals are in Nanaimo Thursday to

take on the North Division leading 12-2 Buccaneers, and return home Saturday to face the 5-8-1 Saanich Braves at 7:30 p.m. New players The Generals introduced five new players — four skaters and a goalie — Saturday night. The four skaters — two defenceman and two forwards — were all in

the lineup. Joining last week were defenceman Chel Anderson, 19, from Comox, who was acquired in a trade, and Connor McNary, 18, from Orlando, Florida, who was playing for the Vermont Academy Wildcats. Also making debuts were forwards  Wyatt Petryshen, 18, who played major midget for

his hometown Calgary Buffalos, and  Nate Fitzpatrick, 20, formerly playing Jr. A with the Soo Eagles of the NAHL, along with  goalie Evgueni Makarski, 18, from Toronto, who came by way of the Tier  1 Richmond Generals in Virginia. “It’s a lot colder up here,” McNary assessed prior to the start of Saturday’s game.  McNary had been scouted by the Gens’ newly-signed GM Lou Gravel, who is also the head scout for the BCHL’s Cowichan Valley Capitals. Gravel said McNary had a good main camp with the Caps, but as McNary explaned: “but I hurt my knee, went home for rehab, called Lou back, and he said he had a spot for me here on the Jr. B Generals, so I decided to come up, play here, and try and work my way up to Jr. A.” “From the net out — that’s how you rebuild a hockey team,” Gravel said Friday, agreeing that while it’s unusual to see a team bring in five new players at this point in the season, “when you’re 1-12 you need new players. I’ve already had a few calls,” he chuckled. “It’s making some of the teams in the league nervous.”
