Plane crash claims three

Gazette staff The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identities of the three men killed when the float plane in which they were flying crashed at Potts Lagoon, on West Cracroft Island, last Thursday. Kevin Roger Williams, aged 42, from Lake Country in the

Okanagan, was the pilot of the Air Cab Cessna 185 floatplane which crashed into an island in the middle of Potts Lagoon, where it was expected to land, at about 11:45 a.m. on Oct. 24. The two passengers on the plane were Frederick Gerald Cecil Wiley, aged 40, of Merville on Vancouver

Island, and Norman Slavik, aged 59, of Surrey. The two had chartered the plane to take them from Port McNeill to a logging operation on West Cracroft Island, a small island on the east side of Robson Bight east of Alert Bay. The plane struck a heavily wooded embankment about 20

yards upslope from Potts Lagoon, located on the south side of Clio Channel on West Cracroft Island. Several people witnessed the crash and rushed to the scene, but there was nothing they could do as

J.R. Rardon Gazette editor PORT McNEILL— Albert Sweet spent 31 years in Port McNeill before finally retiring this month as the town’s treasurer. Which made him the second-longest serving official at his final Town council meeting last week. “I thought I’d beat you, but I just couldn’t do it,” Sweet joked to Mayor Gerry Furney, the longest-serving elected official in Canada since being elected councillor and, later, mayor in the 1960s. Furney and Town administrator Sue Harvey closed last week’s council meeting by presenting Sweet with a parting gift of a framed 16x24 print of Port McNeill. “Ah, a picture of Gerry!” Sweet cracked, drawing a laugh from councillors before tearing off the wrapping paper to reveal the aerial view of the town. “On behalf of the council and the people of Port McNeill, I’m happy — no, I’m not happy — to be giving you this, because we’re gonna have a tough job replacing you,” said Furney. “Al, take this off my hands; it’s with great reluctance I pass

Tourism ad approved Council granted permission for $519.75 to purchase an advertisement in the Alaska Milepost Magazine, the comprehensive travel bible for visitors to the state of Alaska. The motion was brought by coun. Gaby Wickstrom, who noted the ad was a modest two-column, two-inch display ad but that it would be included in a larger ad being put together by Vancouver Island North Tourism.

“The tourism group’s budget, as of Aug. 30, was $12,402, with approximately $2,000 coming out for brochures still needing to be paid out,” said Wickstrom. She added that a Vancouver Island map was going to be included in the publication in the coming year. Mayor Furney asked whether effectiveness of the ad might be tracked, perhaps through the offer of a free coffee at the Visitors Centre for anyone who brings in the ad. “How about we do a free coffee at Tia’s (Restaurant) with the mayor for anyone who brings in the ad?” Wickstrom joked.

Port Hardy RCMP reports a drop in files Gazette staff Port Hardy RCMP Staff Sergeant Gord Brownridge appeared before council to give his quarterly review of policing in the town. And it was good news, with local crime figures significantly down in comparison with the same quarter last year. The S/Sgt. broke the report into four categories, the strategic priorities of the local detachment. On substance abuse and drug trafficking, Brownridge commended the efforts of one of his constables. “Rob Brennan has been doing a lot of good work with some of the people in the town. All I can say is I hope the trend continues.” The detachment was recently contacted by B.C.’s Crime Reduction Coordinator regarding its progress on this front. The CRC requested the detachment share its strategies with other detachments facing similar issues.

Members continue to focus on traffic offences in the town, with accidents in parking lots highlighted in the report. Of nine reportable collisions last quarter, four occurred in parking lots. The local detachment recently submitted an article to the Gazette (October 10, Lots of care needed) on just that issue, warning motorists that attention was needed in parking lots. The detachment continues to work to maintain a presence in First Nations communities, with a Letter of Expectation signed last quarter with the Quatsino Band. On crime reduction, the detachment is looking at break and enters in the area. Members worked to counter a trend in previous quarters which saw liquor-selling commercial businesses being targeted. Officers sent letters to each such establishment in the town, offering to visit and discuss security with owners.

with the first poppy of the season. Kearey also informed council of the member crisis the local branch is facing. “We need a lot of help,” he said. “We’re in dire straits, member-wise. We need about three or four executive members urgently.” The mayor thanked Kearey for his presentation before he took his leave with a tongue-in-cheek, “I’ll say it again: this could be my last year.” Legion branches George Kearey of the Royal Canadian Legion presents Port Hardy across the country are Mayor Bev Parnham with the first poppy of the season at last busily preparing for week’s council meeting.

economies,” explained Mayor Parnham. Local advocates for reduced fares argue that the ferry system in B.C. should be treated as an extension of the highway, with the province contributing more to run the system. Increasing fares and reducing sailings to meet shortfalls are seen by proponents of change as counterproductive; the higher prices and reduced flexibility serve to deter passengers, leading to more shortfalls and a pricing ‘death spiral’. “Ferries need to be treated like any bridge or road,” said the mayor. “Our expectation is that we will not be treated any differently. We don’t insist Vancouver pay for highways.” Mayor Parnham said further meetings were planned on the issue. “He did admit we had more than reached a tipping point on fares and that’s really having a detrimental impact on communities up and down the coast.”

The Port McNeill Lioness, through the generous support of North Islanders and visitors, has reached their $4,000 goal for a third Hearing Guide dog.

What about tomorrow? Prime Minister Stephen Harper could probably use some good news about now. We’ll remind him that the ongoing Senate expense scandal has at least knocked that whole business of spying on the Brazilian mining industry off the top of the Canadian news cycle. Hey, at least he’s not Barack Obama, who has some ‘splaining to do to German Chancellor Angela Merkel and, oh, 30-odd other “allies” about why his country’s security agency is tapped into their communications. Former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan is out flogging a new book, in which he admits to a flaw in the deregulated “free market” ideology he promoted for the better part of three decades. Namely, that the West’s capitalists would always act in their long-term best interest, and that “irrational” or “emotional” behaviour would be harmlessly subsumed long before it could upset the steady-as-she-goes apple cart. Now, though, Greenspan cites the role “animal spirit” played in driving the global economy over a cliff in 2008-09. To illustrate, he describes investors as a “herd” inclined to follow when others of their group establish a trading pattern. That term, however, sounds rather pastoral for behaviour more suited to a feral pack of dogs. It seems many captains of finance and elected officials, who more and more seem to consist of the same members, share that predatory drive. In the same way bankers have tossed the long-term health of the economy — and the planet — under the bus in favour of short-term profit, so do our leaders seem focussed more on their immediate short-term hold on power over any good they might do for their citizens over the long term. In a democracy, the people would have the power to change this.

Perils of an ‘entitlement state’ VICTORIA – With the B.C. and federal governments once again struggling to climb out of deep operating deficits, it’s a good time for the release of Mark Milke’s book Tax Me, I’m Canadian. An update of the same title published 12 years ago, the book retains the history of taxes in Canada, detailing how Canada’s tax system was initially built to mimic the United States system in the late 19th century. Beyond the history, it is mostly new material. Included are chapters on the global meltdown of 2009, the surge of pension liabilities as the baby boomers retire and the flawed logic behind the “Occupy” and “Idle No More” protests. Some readers will immediately note that Milke works for the Fraser Institute and was previously B.C. director of the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation. But the book is not just an argument for

cutting taxes. It also dismantles persistent myths that income taxes are illegal, and launches a broadside on what Milke calls “Canada’s corporate welfare carnival.” Many people will be able to identify some top names in the government subsidy game: Bombardier, General Motors, even poor old Rolls Royce Canada. But I did not know that Industry Canada grants were handed out to pizza parlours (including the remote pizza-starved village of

Kamloops), or to help open gas stations or convenience stores in Kelowna, Vernon and Chilliwack. Milke makes a useful point for B.C. about royalty rates for timber, natural gas and other resources. They are resource rents, and if they are too high the tenants will move out. Reducing them isn’t a subsidy, especially if it leads to big revenue gains as B.C.’s unconventional shale gas incentives have done.

ally higher, and taxpayers have to cover their personal pension contributions (as a portion of those wages) as well as the employer contributions, plus the “defined benefit” payout, which has to be subsidized far beyond what the pension fund can support. On the debt-financed welfare state, there are memorable observations, like this one: “For the record, the generous Quebec welfare state and its ostensibly more progressive model are paid for in part with the taxes of other Canadians; Quebec is merely the North American equivalent of Greece.” The recent B.C. political crisis over adoption of the harmonized sales tax showed that there is too much emotion and too little knowledge about how taxes work. This book is a step towards addressing that. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. tfletcher@ blackpress.ca

Graveyard needs care Dear editor, May I, through the medium of your paper, express some dismay and, perhaps, disgust over the condition of our local graveyard. A little background is in order: As some of your readers may know, In my position as the Poppy Chairman of our local legion branch, some years ago I took it upon myself to place recycled poppy wreaths upon the grave sites of persons that I personally know were veterans. I ask nothing for this; although, each year one family does give me a donation for the poppy

fund in memory of their Father (thank you Jackie and Colleen). Over the course of about the twenty years I have been doing this task I have watched the graveyard deteriorate to the point where, if something is not done soon, it will take a major undertaking to renovate the place. Marker stones are sinking into the ground through subsidence where, very soon, it will be hard to find them. And, when we have one of our wet events, they are in a pool of water. It surely would not take much to lift a stone and put a bit

of fill under it to level the ground. And, you people with loved ones there, please go and remove your old withered tributes and jam jars. They look awful and the jars, if they fill with water and freeze, will break and become a hazard to people and animals. Finally, the condition of the flower bed around the cross, the roads and walkway down “section one” as I choose to call it: the weeds are taking over. On the walkway there is a particularly interesting spiny-type weed the deer are browsing down to a height of about eight inch-

I sure miss that canoe Dear editor, We have many beautiful places here on the North Island. One of these is Clint Beek recreation site on Keogh Lake. I have enjoyed many wonderful days in the sun, on the beach, and canoeing around the lake. Friends, neighbours, and fellow campers would often borrow my canoe for a paddle, so I decided to leave it there for all to enjoy. Last Sunday was another pristine day, so I thought I’d go out to the lake for a paddle, and bring my canoe in for the winter. When I got to the lake there was only a trail in the sand, where my canoe use to be. Perhaps my canoe will find its way back to me and all those who enjoyed it last summer ....

es that could become a tripping problem to older persons. The flower bed is full of weeds and, lastly, the roadways are becoming overgrown with moss with copious weeds growing along the curbstones. Thank you, Gazette, for the use of your letters section, and to the general public. If you have any veteran who is in the graveyard that I am not aware of, please let me know who they are. Thank you, George Kearey, Royal Canadian Legion Port Hardy

Tech is a challenge Dear editor, Even though I am a senior and supposed to have retired, I find that in our dealings with big corporations they are urging us to be more paperless. Acquaintances are using more of this high-tech communication. I have been avoiding this high-tech for quite a while now, but I finally decided to take the plunge. I bought a laptop (computer) and found it to be quite expensive. Now the question is, how do you operate this thing? Then I saw an ad in the

N.I. Gazette, a course, Introduction to Computer. Since I reside at Alert Bay and, to get to North Island College I have to board a ferry, then, at Port McNeill, get on a transit bus, then, at Port Hardy, take a taxi to the NIC office. I signed up for the allday course on Saturday, another expense. I had to cancel this course because the transit bus only runs at a limited time on Saturdays. I gathered that if you want to learn computer, then you have to bother

your friends or relatives who might have knowledge or experience of how to operate a laptop computer. No wonder why I hear of viruses and abuse of computers. At one time there were typing manuals to teach us the proper use of typewriters.

NISS heating system to be hot stuff Gazette staff PORT HARDY— Students and staff at NISS will have to wait a little longer for a planned upgrade to the heating system at the school. But when they do get it, it could be pretty cool for a heating system. Treasurer John Martin told the board that staff were working with engineers from the Regional District on plans to use waste heat from the arena to heat the school. To keep the ice solid on the arena floor, huge refrigeration units draw heat from inside the building and shed it outside. The plan would be to funnel that unwanted warmth from the heat exchangers to the nearby high school.

“This is really exciting,” said Martin. “It sounds really positive but it needs some money up-front.” The upgrade wasn’t included as a line item on a five-year financial plan presented last week. Instead, funds are being saved from this year’s plan to be added to next year’s as funding for the project’s installation. Once up and running, the project should see significantly lower heating bills for the school as the arena — in operation during the colder months — supplies much of the winter heating. Publications School Board members were unanimous in their praise of a district

newsletter. “It’s a way of getting topics and ideas out to the community,” explained Superintendent Scott Benwell. “It’s a first trial; we’ve received some good feedback. It fills a niche of drawing attention to some of the good work done in our schools.” “We’ve got some wonderful things going on in this district,” concurred Chair Leightan Wishart. The board also heard that the SD85 would be featured in an upcoming LEARN magazine profile. “They would like to feature our district around the work we’re doing on our Aboriginal Educational programs,” explained Benwell. District Principal of

School Board First Nations Programs Kaleb Child is to be featured on the cover of the magazine while he and others in the program are highlighted in an article within its pages. “There’s a real sense of pride (about this),” said Benwell. Quality Teaching A s s i s t a n t Superintendent Katherine Macintosh shared news that the district was selected to participate in a new initiative on teaching excellence. The district was one of 32 that submitted proposals to the Ministry of Education and one of only six

were chosen to participate. “We’re excited by this opportunity,” said McIntosh. “Not only is this funded by the ministry, but we’ll have the opportunity to share our results provincially. I’m very excited to be a part of this.” “This is not about being the token rural district,” said Benwell, “this was done on merit. We can stack up with anyone they put us against.”

“You’ve seen this,” said Martin. “We’ve just gone through a year so we’ve moved from projected to actuality. Due to continued declining enrolment, we’ve added another year of funding protection. We’re looking at $200-300 thousand in reductions yearon-year. With a prudent approach we will not be in a deficit any of those years.” “We need to build good habits in this district,” agreed Benwell.

Finance projections A prudent approach to financial management will keep the district’s books healthy in the long-term and avoid a deficit, treasurer Martin told the board during a long-term financial projection.

Strategic plan The Board of Education voted to accept a draft of the district’s strategic plan, the fruit of months of collaboration aimed at defining a framework for future direction in the district.

Many admissions to hospital are due to a medication problem...not taking them properly, taking too much or too little or due to a drug interaction. Having a complete record of your medications helps us to ensure you’re taking your medications correctly and safely. A vasectomy is still one of the best birth control methods. A minor operation using a local anaesthetic, it involves severing the tubes that carry sperm from the testes to the penis. The operation doesn’t result in immediate sterility so alternate birth control methods should still be used. No sexual difficulties result from the operation however it doesn’t protect against sexuallytransmitted diseases.

After a brief discussion on some of the exact wording in the document, the board passed a motion to accept the plan as presented. “The Strategic Plan 2013/14 sets priorities and defines the path of our school district for the next five years,” the document states. “ It serves as a framework to guide the planning and decision-making throughout the district, ensuring that we remain focused on every student becoming a graduate prepared for opportunities beyond graduation.” The plan outlines core values to be considered in future discussions and the aspirations that the district holds for its students.

DDT’s impact on North Island coho runs We don’t have to look very far into our history to see some surprising examples of what once constituted ‘acceptable environmental impacts.’ In 1955, North Island foresters realized they had a problem. The valuable stands of timber in the area from the Nimpkish River north were seeing a significant infestation of the black-headed budworm. Worried about the possible impact on timber supplies, the province decided to experiment with a new treatment that was first used to kill parasites during World War II to prevent the spread of malaria and typhus. Dichloro-diphenyltrichloroethane, known more commonly as DDT, is colourless, tasteless, and almost odourless. The government knew that the DDT application could have significant effects on the local fish and wildlife, and involved the Department of Fisheries and the Game Commission in the experiment. Flight patterns were designed to avoid rivers. The treatment on North Island forests involved mixing one pound of DDT with a wood penetrating emulsifier, added to a gallon of diesel oil. One gallon was then applied per acre by low-flying aircraft, with a total of 155,000 acres being sprayed in effected areas between June 10 and 20, 1957. The spraying annihilated almost all insects

A Look Back with Brenda McCorquodale within the treatment area. Even stream-dwelling insects were almost totally eliminated, as recorded a number of stations sampled prior to, immediately after, and four months following the application. The impacts on salmon were also catastrophic. It was hoped that the timing of the application would minimize impacts on local salmon runs, but there were many tens of thousands of juvenile coho salmon and trout within local watersheds at the time.

Interactive extravaganza at Gate House

Gazette staff PORT McNEILL— Spectators attending a play at Gate House Community Theatre Saturday never received a ticket, and never took a seat. Instead, they found themselves part of the story. The Wizard’s Daughter, a unique, interactive production featuring both adult actors and members of a pair of youth drama programs, drew dozens of patrons who were asked to help solve the mystery of the missing girl and help return her to her parents in time to be crowned princess of the All Hallows’ Eve celebration. “We had a lot of people come through,”

adventure. “I think we’ll make this an annual tradi-

wife. “I think it went really well.” The show was held by donation, with groups scheduled for departure every 15 minutes on a tour through the theatre for clues and interaction with groups of actors in various locations throughout the theatre. The concept may take some time to finetune. Nearly 30 people appeared at the 6 p.m. start, and were ushered into the theatre to start their tour through rooms better suited for 6-10 participants.

Audience members, after being given clues throughout their “journey”, were eventually taught a song that freed the wizard’s daughter from the fairies’s clutches and returned her to her parents.

North Island Life

Sointula greets speeders Gazette staff SOINTULA—More than a hundred North Island youths, including a delegation from Gold River and Tahsis, invaded Malcolm Island last week for the annual Districtwide Cross Country Run for grades 2-7. Students were treated to sunny skies, a mild breeze and plenty of snacks and prize ribbons. One year after the event was moved to Port McNeill due to a cougar scare in Sointula, it returned to Malcolm Island even as a cougar was being sought in Port McNeill. See results in Sports Scoreboard, page 19.

Clockwise from above: Eileah Cotter of Eagle View Elementary leads the bantam girls race up the final big hill in last week’s districtwide cross-country meet in Sointula; tyke boys runners break from the starting line; the tyke girls begin the day with the first race; Jason Glendale of A.J. Elliott School, (9) leads a pack of peewee boys runners around a corner; Jordis Sinden of Eagle View catches some air as she nears J.R. Rardon the finish of the tyke girls race.

Atoms, Alberni skate to tie

Gazette staff PORT HARDY— An Ethan BonoTyler Roper partnership supplied all three goals in a 3-3 see-saw tie when the North Island Eagles Atom Development faced Alberni Valley last weekend at Port Hardy's Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena. “The kids came out flying right from the start,” atoms coach Ray Bono said. “It was

a strong effort. They certainly deserved a tie, at least.” This visitors struck first, midway through the second period, but the Eagles were only behind for just over a minute as Roper found the net off of Bono’s assist. The teams were locked in a stalemate for the rest of the period, the Eagles finally pulling ahead for a deserved lead with 16:08 left to play

“It was a strong effort. They certainly deserved a tie, at least.” Coach Ray Bono

in the third. A Roper pass found Bono waiting to pounce in the slot and he found the net to give the home side the advantage. The two sides battled for control in the centre before Alberni got a breakthrough of

their own with 9:21 on the clock, sparking a frantic end-to-end finale. The Eagles got their noses in front once more through a masterful strike from Roper. Bono’s pass found the Port Alice

skater in space on the edge of the left circle. Roper then carved a route across the face of goal and slotted home a shot at the far post. It wasn’t to be the Eagles’ day, however, as the visitors surged forward on a power play minutes later, a glancing touch from a scramble in the slot enough to elude Eagles goalie Kayden Jones and trickle across the line.

The atoms will wrap up the tiering portion of their schedule this weekend when they host Juan de Fuca at 1:45 p.m. Saturday in Port Alice. “Once we get into our tier and start playing our league games, I think the kids will figure it out,” Bono said. “We’re right there, just one step away. And they’re having fun, win or lose.” Or draw.

Late lapse costs Midgets against Comox

Gazette staff PORT ALICE— The Eagles Midgets were two-thirds of the way to a fine victory against the Tier 2 Comox Chiefs last weekend before a third-period collapse allowed the visitors to skate away with a 4-2 win. A three-goal flurry from the Chiefs in the closing nine minutes overturned a hardearned 2-1 Eagles lead that carried deep into the third period. After a back-andforth opening to the game, the Eagles gradually took control as the period went on. The home side were rewarded with a goal with 7:32 on the clock when a Malcolm Browne shot found Zach Cameron on the crease, his deflection steering the puck into

the net. The Eagles found their check late in the period, and initially paid the price for overuse when a power-play goal from the visitors tied the score. The hitting paid off immediately in the second. The Eagles found

an extra yard from the puck drop, the visitors seemingly reluctant to crowd the home side and the Eagles took full advantage. Darryl Coon took control of the puck in centre ice and intelligently held up play waiting for the onside. When the Comox

defenders failed to close him out, Coon pushed into space across the blue line and let fly with a long-range missile that caught the Comox goalie flatfooted and gave the Eagles the lead. The home side could have had more as they

peppered the goal with mid- to long-range efforts, perhaps choosing the shot over the pass a little too often. The Eagles were dominant before the ice-cleaning break, relishing the extra space, quick to chase down loose pucks and looking far hungrier

than the visitors. But for a six-minute spell in the third where all the damage was done, the Eagles were the superior side on the ice. The midgets will be back in action Saturday when they host Nanaimo at 2:30 p.m. in Port Hardy.

Bulls rally for 2-2 draw against Mustangs Gazette staff PORT HARDY— It was honours even last weekend as the Mustangs and Bulls played to a 2-2 tie at the Don Cruikshank Memorial Arena in the Mens Commercial Hockey league. Much like the old cliche, it was a game of two halves and the first belonged to the Mustangs. John Murgatroyd opened the scoring for the Port McNeill outfit, slotting home from a Ryan Rushton assist with 12:43 on the clock. Eight minutes later Murgatroyd turned provider, putting Glen Moore in to double the Mustangs’ lead and giving a buffer to take into the ice-cleaning break. Whatever was said in the Bulls locker room during the break fired up the Hardy side for the second half. An Yvan Noel pass gave Brad Zealand an extra yard down the left during a power play and his wraparound shot found the back of the net. The Mustangs protested that the puck didn’t go between the posts however. Team members pointed to

a gap behind the left post and argued that the puck had gone the wrong side of the post and under the sidenetting. The protests fell on deaf ears however, and the goal stood. With the difference down to one, both teams rallied and pushed up the tempo as the game went endto-end. Both sides carved out chances, but goalkeeping heroics from the Mustangs’ Aaron Hinton and the Bulls’ Colin Hunko frustrated the attackers. The Bulls got their breakthrough with

9:26 left on the clock. A shot from Steve Verbrugge from the right circle was turned aside by Hinton’s blocker, the puck looping across the goal. Curtis Martyn pounced on the rebound, volleying home a onetimer out of the air and tying the score. A frantic closing spell followed, the Mustangs surging forward to pressure the Bulls zone while the home side looked to score on the counter. Strong goalkeeping at either end kept the score in the balance however, the clock running down before

either side could find another goal. The pair will face off again this weekend, once more in Port Hardy, with the puck dropping at 9:15 p.m. Islanders/Warriors In Port Alice the Neucel Islanders hosted the Port Hardy Warriors, Friday night. The game also marked Council Appreciation Night at the arena and council members were on hand to open the game with a ceremonial puck drop. "Last year, the federal government launched the Community

Improvement Program and we decided to get on board," read a statement from council. "What started as a paint job turned into a full upgrade of the exterior envelope. The grant funded half of the work undertaken in this $100,000 upgrade. Some of the things we got done were roof repairs, a new Zamboni pad, a new entrance canopy, new exterior doors, repairs to vents and drains, and an all-around paint job.

Peewees rally past Juan de Fuca, 8-6 J.R. Rardon Gazette editor PORT HARDY—If the North Island Eagles peewee hockey team is establishing an identity in the early days of the 2013-14 season, it’s one of a come-from-behind team. Rhys Dutcyvich scored his second hat trick in a week and Mathew Saunders added a pair of goals Sunday as the peewees rolled to an 8-6 Vancouver Island Hockey League Division 3 victory over Juan de Fuca Sunday at Don Cruickshank Memorial Arena. The game was the league season opener for the peewees (6-5 overall), and followed a 3-2 loss to the

same Juan de Fuca squad one day earlier, in a noncounting exhibition game. In that meeting, the Eagles went out in front 2-1 before the visiting Grizzlies rallied with a pair of third-period goals at Chilton Regional Arena in Port McNeill. That result was reversed in emphatic fashion in Sunday’s rematch in Port Hardy. The Eagles overcame deficits of 3-0 in the first period and 4-3 in the second to claim the league win, outscoring the Grizzlies 8-2 through the middle of the contest before the visitors got a late goal to close the gap. “We started working hard

and stopped taking bad penalties,” said Dutcyvich, who got the rally started with an unassisted goal in the final minute of the opening period and who eventually capped his hat trick with

the game-winner midway through the third. “Some of the leaders stepped up, and we really picked it up by the end.” Clayton Bono added a goal and assisted on two

more, and Carson Strang and Devin White also scored in the win. Payton Laming, who netted two assists, was given the team’s digger award, and goalie Michael McLaughlin got the win in net, settling nicely after the rocky start. “The kids stuck to the game plan,” assistant coach Chad McKenzie said. “They stayed focussed and kept positive with each other. They wanted the win, and they knew what it took to get it.” The low point of the game for the Eagles came when they were skating on a power play and Juan de Fuca’s Nolan Kraeker scored shorthanded for a

3-0 Grizzlies lead at 13:17 of the first period. But the peewees scored four of the game’s next five goals to knot the score 4-4, then turned the tide with their own shorthanded score late in the second period. With Strang serving a five-minute major penalty, the Eagles not only killed the full penalty, but went ahead when Saunders scored for a 5-4 lead at 17:13 of the second period, giving the peewees the lead for good. Bono and Juan de Fuca’s Evan Law traded goals early in the third period, but Bono, Dutcyvich and White followed with con-

Whale of a time Gazette staff PORT McNEILL— It may not have been the first time a church collection plate was used to help fund whale research and education. On the other hand, perhaps it was. St. John Gualbert Church hosted its third Speaker’s Corner event last week, featuring Jackie Hildering of the Marine Education Research Society in an educational, entertaining and, occasionally humorous presentation highlighting the return of humpback whales to the waters of North Vancouver Island over the past decade or so. Recapping the pressures that drove the huge marine mammals

each month, the series is the brainchild of the church’s board of directors and Reverend Wade Allen. Next month’s Speaker’s Corner features Dr. Paul Spong of OrcaLab, who will speak Nov. 20 at 7 p.m. on the facility’s ongoing research efforts around the resident and transient populations of killer whales in the region. Admission to the speaker’s corner events is free. Donations are accepted and encouraged, and are provided to the speakers to assist in efforts in their efforts for encourage ecological and environmental protection and rehabilitation efforts in the region.

from the regions and highlighting the challenges that remain in the mammals’ recovery in the area, Hildering held an audience of more than 40 guests rapt with a slideshowbacked lecture. “It was heartening to see how many people were interested in whale research and recovery,” said Hildering. “Since the whole idea is to promote education and research, it’s positive to see this kind of turnout.” The ongoing Speaker’s Corner series features secular lectures on topics of interest to North Vancouver Island residents and visitors. Scheduled for the third Wednesday of

The show that nearly wasn’t Gazette staff PORT McNEILL— The folk-fusion band Wheat in the Barley spent last week on a whirlwind concert tour of North Vancouver Island’s schools. But what was supposed to be an exclamation-point finale to the tour almost never happened. Wheat in the Barley showcased their instrumental virtuosity, stylistic eclecticism and songwriting chops Oct. 18 at Gate House Community Theatre before a small but music-savvy crowd. What the audience lacked in numbers — perhaps 40 hardy souls turned out — it made up for in appreciation for the group’s genrebending skill on stage. The quartet of Steve Gidora, Victor Smith, Nicole Scoffield and Mark Dowding played shows at both elementary and secondary schools on the North Island from Tuesday through Friday last week, and had just performed their sound check for Friday night’s show at Gate House Theatre when disaster struck. Dowding admits to tripping over a cable, which set off a chainreaction that resulted in Scoffield’s violin being

“There’s no such pigeonhole as cossack-cowboy.” Victor Smith

jarred from a small table and knocked to the floor, where its neck was broken away from the body. That led to a series of calls in search of a replacement instrument, which drew in members of the North Island Concert Society and North Island Community Band. Eventually, a loaner violin was secured from Hyde Creek teen Maia Rardon, who had played the instrument with NICB and the Pacific Winds youth band several years earlier. The loaner violin, delivered about an hour before the start of the show, put Scoffield back in the mix. “I’ve got two more violins at home, but home is in Vancouver,” said Scoffield. “There was no way to get one of them sent here in time.” The 11th-hour substitution created a change for Scoffield, who normally plays with an amplified pickup on her own violin but who had to utilize a standing microphone Friday. Dowding, whose instrument selection

included two saxophones, a flute and a table covered with harmonicas, pipes and whistles, noted Scoffield is also an accomplished pianist. But the group’s numbers were all worked up with Scoffield on the fiddle, and its playlist was too reliant to fulfill with the other three members. Which is not to say the players did not cover plenty of musical ground. With Gidora on both guitar and violin, Dowding’s multiple instruments and Smith’s wide-ranging capability (accordion, percussion, guitar, flute and whistles), Wheat in the Barley has an extensive range covering bluegrass, Celtic, blues, pop and folk, not only North American but Eastern European and South American styles. The group’s playlist at Gate House was a mix of original compositions from members, traditional numbers, and a hybrid of traditionals modified by the band.”We’re going to do a song Steve wrote,

written in the obscure genre of the cossackcowboy form,” Smith joked while introducing the group’s penultimate number, Can’t Draw the Curtain, from the group’s debut album of the same name. “A Celtic, Slavic blue song,” Gidora amended. “That’s why they have such trouble pigeonholing us,” Smith Wheat in the Barley — from left, Mark Dowding, Nicole Scoffield, added. “There’s no such Steve Gidora and Victor Smith — wrapped up a week of school pigeonhole as cossackshows on the North Island with a concert at Gate House cowboy.” Community Theatre, October 18.

Leif Irving Ericson Born in Vancouver, BC to Eric and Elvera Ericson on June 7, 1946 and passed away on Sept 27, 2013 at his home in Sointula, BC. Leif enjoyed mechanics, photography, reading, and traveling. During his travels he made many new friends and on one of these trips in the early 1970’s, met his wife of 13 years while visiting family in Jamtland, Sweden. Leif went on to live in Sointula, BC with his wife and children, making a living as a fisherman on the Alisa-Y. After retiring from fishing he made several trips to Mexico enjoying the sun, the culture and time spent with new friends. The light of his life were his children now residing in Sweden and his grandchildren (Adam 6, Ingrid 5, Elsie 3, and Vera 2) who kept in touch with Grandpa through letters, photos, drawings and phone calls. He is predeceased by parents, Eric and Elvera Ericson and sister Rita. He is survived by his children TherÊse (Jonas; grandchildren Adam and Vera), Katrina (Henrik; grandchildren Ingrid and Elsie), Clayton (Miriam) in Sweden; Curt (Peter) from NY, Michelle (Norm and children) from BC, sisters Wilma (Dave) and Lorna (Lea), Max (Rita) and many nieces and nephews.

Meet with Your MLA

7.5 years ago my husband, Adam and I moved to Port Hardy for my job as a pharmacist. 3 years into my 2 year contract (how many of us on the North Island can say the same thing?!) we decided to make our move permanent and purchased Peoples Drug Mart in the Thunderbird Mall. I have always wanted to own a business and having one in Port Hardy is a great fit. The last 4 years of owning Peoples Drug Mart has given me a new appreciation for living in a small town. We have received so much support from everyone and I love being able to play a role in creating a healthy community. We look forward to many more years of owning a business and being a part of this community! Thunderbird Mall 250-949-9522

Winterfest weekend coming up Gazette staff SOINTULA—The local Winterfestival Craft Fair is now in it’s 37th year, and has never been more popular. The fair, scheduled for 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Nov. 16, fills both the F.O. Hall and the adjacent Community Hall across

the parking lot with hand-crafted and homebaked goods. And if you haven’t already booked your table, it may be too late. “All the available tables have already been booked, and we’ve started a waiting list,” organizer Carmen

Burrows said. The craft fair, which features hot lunch offerings from two kitchens and other concession items, is the centrepiece of the three-day Winterfest weekend on Malcolm Island. It kicks off with live music by John Gogo

Friday evening, Nov. 15, at the Whale’s Rub Pub. Admission is by donation. Saturday’s events include the craft fair, a beginner “Zentangle” art workshop from 1-4:30 p.m. at the Old Medical Centre, the popular Sointula Stage
