Coun. Ron Kerr wants the city to delay removing mementos from grave sites at the two city cemeteries and doesn’t believe it’s just the adornments that are generating complaints. Kerr, at Tuesday’s council meeting, said he was not in favour of supporting the cemetery clean-up plan along with the rest of council. “I can’t support the motion,” Kerr said. “I believe the status quo should be retained and no major changes made until we have a new cemetery.”

A young man won’t be going to jail for stealing and crashing a car while high on acid, but a judge has ordered him to repay a former neighbour more than $17,000. Joseph Graham, 20, was sentenced Monday in Campbell River provincial court after being convicted of robbery and dangerous driving. Graham, who has been diagnosed with a mood disorder, had never been in trouble with the law until April 2, 2012, when he swallowed 5-7 hits of acid. As a result, he suffered serious delusions, thought he was dead and had an overpowering desire to get away from his mother’s house that morning. Wearing only track pants and carrying a knife, Graham walked into a neig hb our’s garage where he threatened Dave Denton and demanded his keys. Denton, who has Parkinson’s and Crohn’s Disease, immediately

complied. Graham sped away from the residence in Denton’s new Nissan Leaf electric car and drove dangerously through the city, reaching speeds of 100-120 kilometres per hour. He was finally forced off the road by other drivers and crashed the car near the top of General Hill on Highway 28. “During the course of that ride, he placed a number of other motorists in serious danger. It is only by blind luck that none of them were injured or killed,” wrote Judge Ted Gouge in his decision. As for Denton’s experience, the judge added, “Mr. Denton was, understandably, terrified. His physical condition, consequent on his Parkinson’s disease, has deteriorated as a result of the trauma in these events.” Since his arrest that day, Graham has abided by all his bail conditions. He has the support of his family, works with his father and is taking college business courses. In psychiatric reports EWOS Canada’s Surrey feed mill, which provides all the salmon feed used by Mainstream Canada’s salmon farms, was certified this month to the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s Best Aquaculture Practices standard.
prepared for the court, Graham is described as a very low risk to re-offend and that jail would not serve any beneficial purpose. “He’s shown remorse. He feels awful about the robbery and making Mr. Denton feel scared in his own home. For the moment he’s done this, he’s felt ashamed,” said defence counsel Dennis Evans at an early court hearing. “A custodial sentence would be harmful to his mental health.” Crown prosecutor David Fitzsimmons had asked for a custodial sentence because the robbery resulted in a personal injury to Denton. But on Monday, Judge Gouge said jail wasn’t the answer.
“I think that the best hope for protection of the public and for Mr. Graham’s rehabilitation lies in an extended period of probation which will assist him to address his psychiatric illness and restrain him from the use of street drugs,” the judge said. Graham was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to not contact the Denton family or go near their residence. The judge also ordered him to repay Denton $17,300 in instalments of $150. The judgement comes from the $300 insurance deductible that Denton had to pay, plus $17,000 for the depreciation for the car due to its crash history.

Concerns surround decommissioning of city’s water system
Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR
With the city’s main drinking water source set to be decommissioned by BC Hydro, some members of council are concerned the city doesn’t yet have a plan B. As part of the John Hart Dam reconstruction project, within the next five years, BC Hydro will be removing the three penstocks
which currently deliver the city’s drinking water from John Hart Lake to the city’s water treatment facility. That’s forcing the city to build a new water intake system to continue providing the community with water. The replacement concerned Coun. Larry Samson at Tuesday’s council meeting as council was preparing to award the replacement project to Stantec Consulting Ltd. “We’re going from three pen stocks down to one line,” Samson said. “Is there any backup being planned at this stage, if something was to go wrong with the single line?” Ron Neufeld, the city’s general manager of operations, said that will be taken into account and noted the new system will be more secure than what is currently in place. “In terms of reference or scope of design for this project, it will obviously be taking that view into consideration,” Neufeld said. “It will in fact provide a greater level of security for the community than what exists currently with the BC Hydro penstocks as BC Hydro has already identified seismic concerns with the penstocks at play.” Neufeld said the new system will be designed to high seismic standards to ensure it can
withstand a powerful earthquake. “It will be better in terms of system integrity than what is in play today,” Neufeld stressed. He added that the city is also looking long-term at developing a redundancy plan which would involve designing a secondary water source for the community. Neufeld said the city is considering in the future the possibility of taking water from a higher lake in the dam system, specifically McIvor Lake. In the meantime, Neufeld said there are other options the city can consider for a back-up plan, such as a direct pumping system. Mayor Walter Jakeway, however, wasn’t satisfied with that answer. “Mr. Neufeld I hear what you’re saying but if we’ve got a chance to do it, why would we not do it now?” Jakeway questioned. “You never know when a big event is going to happen and we need a back-up. I’d expect to see this plan include a plan of how we can do a redundancy.” In the end, council voted to award the water project to Stantec Consulting at a cost of $422, 154. BC Hydro will be contributing $500,000 to the project as per an agreement with the city that Hydro will pick up 75 per cent of the costs to build a new drinking water system.

Cemetery: Adornments to be cleared off this month www.CampbellRiverMirror.com www.CampbellRiverMirror.com
From Pg. A1
Starting this month, the city is asking cemetery plot owners to remove anything other than flowers that they may have on their loved one’s grave sites. Objects not removed before July 1, 2014 will be removed by the city and stored at the Dogwood Opera-
tions Centre for six months. But Kerr disagreed with removing anything without first consulting the community. “I just cannot support moving in and removing those without more consultation with the public,” Kerr said. Ross Milnthorp, the city’s general manager
of parks, recreation and culture, said the city is implementing the cleanup because of concerns from funeral directors and the maintenance contractors at the cemetery that the objects are tripping hazards. But Kerr hinted that there’s more to the problem than the adornments.
“To me the problem with the cemeteries is not so much the appearance of the plots themselves or the fields,” Kerr said. “To me, it’s more the overall appearance of the entryways and also the fact the (Elk Falls) cemetery’s so far out of town. “If we’re hearing negative feedback that’s more than just the issue of

will include a permanent identification tattoo on the cat’s ear. The Merecroft Veterinary Clinic and Campbell River Veterinary Hospital will be providing spay and neuter surgeries at a discounted rate to stretch the grant. As well, the SPCA will be asking for a $30 donation from each pet guardian who brings their cat in for surgery. Daniell said he expects the program will greatly reduce the number of stray and feral cats in the city. “We’ll be able to prevent the births of over 600 unwanted cats in Campbell River,” Daniell said. “The reality is, kittens can have kittens. Cats are probably one of the most successful breeding machines out there.” Daniell said the BC SPCA is looking for temporary office space to run the program until it can lock down a location for its new pet adoption and education centre. Some attendees at Tuesday’s meeting asked Daniell where the centre will be opening but
Daniell said he was not in a position to make that announcement. “We do have a particular property we’re quite interested in but we’re not going to divulge that right now,” Daniell said. “We want to ensure we’re able to go through the proper re-zoning process but stay tuned – we will present more information soon.” Daniell said whichever property the SPCA ultimately chooses it will require a re-zoning. Coun. Andy Adams, who was in attendance at the meeting, said when the BC SPCA comes forward with its chosen site, the city and council will work with the SPCA, “to do what we can do.” Mayor Walter Jakeway, who also sat in on the meeting, said there’s also the difficulty of integrating the SPCA into an existing neighbourhood. “People need to realize a re-zoning requires neighbourhood input and support,” Jakeway said. “There’s the whole ‘not in my backyard’ (mentality).” Stephanie Arkwright,
manager of Campbell River’s future pet centre, said what some people may not realize is that the animal education and adoption centre will be run on a much smaller scale than the former SPCA shelter. “There will be just a few dogs,” Arkwright said, noting she hopes to re-start the SPCA’s fos-
ter program so the dogs won’t be all be living at the centre. Daniell confirmed that in the society’s other adoption and education centres – in Nelson, Port Coquitlam and Richmond – there aren’t 20 or 30 barking dogs. “Really, there is no issue with respect to barking,” he said.

the flowers on the grave plots,” Kerr added. Coun. Samson agreed with Kerr but worried that the city was letting the cemeteries get out of control. “I think I saw a picture here in my agenda where people are putting up park benches for seating,” Samson said. “While I agree with Coun. Kerr,
my concern is where do we draw the line? I think if we don’t take some sort of action to try and control what goes in our cemeteries we’ll start seeing things like seating and I’m afraid we have to control it.” The rest of council, with the exception of Kerr and Mayor Walter Jakeway, agreed and

Campbell River Search and Rescue were called to assist in extracting the injured man from a site located off the Peel Main logging road. Unfortunately, the logger succumbed to his injuries by the time members arrived.

Gambling policy at odds with health The B.C. government collects significant revenue from gambling in all of its forms, yet is also responsible for protecting its most vulnerable citizens. Such a quandary places at odds a finance ministry charged with balancing the provincial budget with a health ministry whose We say: B.C. mandate is to not only care for the sick, lags behind other but to promote wellness within the population. provinces in Provincial Health Officer Dr. funding programs Perry Kendall’s report outlining the government’s shortcomings in addressing problem gambling in B.C. raised our eyebrows. Not only did the document paint a vivid picture of how addiction develops – primarily, but not
limited to fast-play electronic slot machines – it hinted at problems which may develop in the future, such as the online grooming of teens and young adults to become regular gamblers. For as long as there have been outcomes to bet on in this province, whether it be mah-jong, horse races, 6/49 tickets or sports games, a certain segment of the population has taken that opportunity to the extreme and spent more than they should on the pastime. For decades, the B.C. Lottery Corporation has promoted gambling in various forms, while only relatively recently adding the tagline to its ads, “Know your limit, play within it.” Clearly, the government has little appetite to distance itself from what has become a major cash cow that funds a broad spectrum of services.
The best way to solve the problem gamblers conundrum is to create an arm’s-length organization to work with the health ministry and University of Victoriabased Centre for Addictions Research to create resources and solutions aimed at reducing the effect of problem gambling on B.C. residents. Such a group would report directly to the legislature and, in theory, be free from the political interference that tends to seep into ministry-led research or initiatives. That B.C. lags well behind other provinces in funding prevention and treatment programs for addicted gamblers proves how low it is on the Liberals’ priority list. It’s time for the government to take its collective head out of the sand on this issue and take real steps to address this growing problem. – Black Press
Sign up and vote Not long ago there was a request in the paper from the Campbell River Hospice Society, to ask people to support their quest for funding a Hospice House via the Aviva Community Fund. This is an ongoing endeavor and really deserves to be supported - good job to the people here in Campbell River who put the application online! The Aviva Fund gives financial support to worthy causes - but it is based online and probably not too many people have heard of it. Please take the time to get online, read about what the Hospice is about, sign up and vote for this cause. I just checked and the votes were at 368 and this town has 30,000 people. That means there are lots of locals who could contribute to those numbers. Please go to the website: http:// www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf17294 Please sign up and vote. You are allowed one vote per day and it runs until Nov. 4. The sooner you can get started the better, and you can share on facebook to ask others to support this. We need a Hospice House and although we will probably get a new hospital in the future, no provision is being made for hospice beds in that hospital setting, although the need is definitely there.

British Columbia oil study misinterpreted
Tom Fletcher B.C. Views
The release of the B.C. government’s detailed study into oil spill response capability off the West Coast created the usual brief wave of media shock and horror. This just in! If crude oil spilled in the Dixon Entrance, the storm-tossed sea lane north of Haida Gwaii, the combined resources of Canadian and U.S. containment and collection response could only recover an estimated four per cent of it. And that’s in the summer. The winter recovery rate would be more like three per cent. Talk radio and website headlines set the narrative in minutes. How could anyone even consider running oil tankers through that pristine B.C. coastal area? It’s crazy.
Here’s the big fact clearly stated in the study by U.S.-based Nuka Research and Planning Group, and ignored by most of the media and public. There are hundreds of tankers filled with crude oil sailing through these stormy seas every year. It’s been going on since Alaska North Slope crude was developed in the 1970s. Six of the seven oil spill simulations run by Nuka are based on Alaska crude, because that’s overwhelmingly what has been shipped along B.C.’s North Coast for 40 years. This lack of crude oil spill response capability has existed the entire time, without a whisper of protest or media attention, even after the 1989 Exxon Valdez disaster near the oil’s point of origin. The current narrative, hammered
home by U.S.-controlled environmental groups and their aboriginal partners in the “Great Bear Rainforest,” is that only Canadian oil is a threat. How much Alaska crude is shipped down the B.C. coast? According to Nuka’s analysis, it’s currently about 38 million cubic metres each year. That’s enough to fill B.C. Place stadium to the roof – 15 times. The Sierra-Greenpeace-ForestEthicsDogwood gang, a sort of billionairebankrolled green Team America, has worked hard to promote the falsehood that “tar sands” oil is vastly worse than that nice fair-trade Alaska stuff. Their claims about acidity and abrasiveness of diluted bitumen didn’t hold up, and it’s still hotly contested whether the heavy
oil in diluted bitumen would float, emulsify or sink in actual sea conditions. When the federal government announced a study to determine what spilled bitumen would do in North Coast waters, that too was attacked by the Green Party as a secret scheme to prop up Enbridge’s pipeline proposal. So it’s a scandal when you don’t know the answers, and it’s a scandal when you try to find them. Another question that gets little attention is whether it’s better for spilled oil to sink rather than wash up on beaches. Crude oil is, if you’ll pardon the expression, organic. Spills produce a huge spike in oil-eating bacteria that leads to an increase in fish populations at a certain

Big projects inspired Berwick to begin Paul Rudan Campbell RiveR miRRoR
One local building project can spur on another, especially when there’s fierce competition for skilled labour. That’s the case across the country and in this city too, according to a panel of business leaders who spoke at the Campbell River Chamber of Commerce third annual Business Expo. “We pulled the trigger on our building when the hospital project was announced because we didn’t want to be competing for trades, especially with the hospital,” said Bill Bomhoff, vicepresident of construction for Berwick Retirement Communities. Bomhoff is presently overseeing construction of the swanky new Berwick residence, located downtown just south of

was the company had to move quickly to begin construction or possibly be held back due to a shortage of skilled labour. Next year will see the start of two large construction projects in Campbell River. A new $266-million, 95-bed hospital will be built next to the present hospital site. As well, BC Hydro will begin a massive $1 billion project to upgrade the John Hart Generating Station. The work will include building a two-kilometre tunnel to deliver water from John Hart Lake to a brand new generating station. Hydro is also building a new $23-million field office at Quinsam Crossing. “It make sense to hire locally…and this is a good community to do
stage. This was documented in a 1994 book called Degrees of Disaster, written by an expert who stayed on in Valdez for four years, long after the TV cameras and grandstanding politicians went home. Victoria-based Dogwood seized on a 2012 Nuka study done for the Haisla Nation at Kitimat, which found that in ocean conditions that are present more than half of the time, there would be no immediate way to respond to a spill at sea. Dogwood’s “no tankers campaign director” hinted that this information was intentionally left out of the B.C. government study, and the media ate it up. No tankers? Better check again. Dogwood’s mission is clearly not to protect the B.C. coast from oil spills. If it were, they would be protesting the ongoing risk from Alaska tankers.

work in,” said BC Hydro spokesman Stephen Watson, who added there’s always opportunities for local subcontractors. The new hospital project – which includes a new hospital in Courtenay – is under the guidance of Tom Sparrow who was also on the panel. He said that once the general contractor is selected, they will also be seeking local contractors for trades and services, because its usually more efficient in terms of both time and money. As for skilled labour, that’s an ongoing concern for the big project operators. “We’re not concerned about BC Hydro, it’s other projects in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan. We will be competing with those projects,” said Sparrow. “There is a concern, no question.” And if Canadians can’t fill the jobs, companies are looking elsewhere in the world for skilled workers. “We’re going to be relying on immigrants as these projects peak,” said Greg Baynton, CEO of the Vancouver Island Construction Association, who is nevertheless pleased by the growing number of projects on Vancouver Island and across B.C. “We’ve never seen opportunities like this. This is unprecedented.”

Welcome to the driver’s seat
In a two-hour drive, the only time I dropped the anchors was when one of Amsterdam’s kazillion cyclists cut in front of me. Keith Morgan
The BMWi electric car powered its way with ease around city streets and along picturesque Dutch canals.
The future is electric AMSTERDAM – BMW has joined the race for the electric car dollar. On the evidence of two days driving the funky-looking all-electric i3 through the narrow streets of old Amsterdam and alongside the picturesque canals of rural Holland, the German manufacturer may have a winner. For starters, it is simply great fun to drive. The lithium-ion battery, encased in an aluminum cage below the five-seater cabin, provides enough instant zap to the electric motor to propel the car smoothly to 100 klicks in less than eight seconds. Left the stopwatch
at home, but counting “one-and-two etc.” to count seconds, my lips barely mouthed “six” before the speedo leapt from 80 to 120 km/h while passing. It handles beautifully at any speed and hugs the road; thanks to the technology-laden aluminum platform, that gives it a very low centre of gravity. Turns on a Euro too, as we found during the many U-turns made on blocked streets. Of course, F1 take-offs will suck the battery dry somewhat more quickly but you need not be a snail in the so-called Comfort mode to achieve the advertised 160 kilometres range on a full

At the Wheel 2014 Mazda3 2014 Mazda3 Mazda, on a global scale, is a small company, so developing new products is a major undertaking. This is why they shared engineering with the Ford Motor Company for many years but that relationship dissolved in 2010. Instead of modifying existing, co-developed vehicles platforms, engines and transmission, the company took a radical turn in the way they develop new products. I’m sure by now you have seen Mazda’s ads for “Skyactiv Technology”. This is the name for their radical design and manufacturing approach. By engineering vehicles from a blank sheet of paper, Mazda could focus on simplifying the manufacturing process to save money, a crucial part of this small companies survival. This new 2014 Mazda3 is the third vehicle to be built using Mazda’s Skyactiv Technology, behind the Mazda CX-5 SUV and Mazda6 sedan.
Mazda went about hand forming the body to produce a style that conveys motion, even standing still.
music, navigation and phone settings but once the car is in motion the screen is only adjustable through a rotary dial controller between the front seats. Mazda places three, easy-to-memories, buttons above the dial for access to the most common functions. On the top GT model there is even a heads-up display that sits right on top of the driver’s instrument cluster, helping to keep the information high enough that it focuses the driver’ s attention on the road. The seats are comfortable and can be fitted with leather on the top model. Even though Mazda lengthened the wheelbase by 60mm, the back seat isn’t long on legroom.
Drive > By developing the direct injection engines, chassis and transmission at the same time, the Mazda engineers were able to shed weight. The lighter platform and powerful 2.0L 4-cylinder with 155hp is a nice match on the base and Zack Spencer GS trim levels, driving either a 6-speed manual or all-new Looks > 6-speed automatic. The top GT is equipped with a 2.5L The platform used to build this all new Mazda3 is a shared engine with 184hp but is only available with the automatic. I’m surprised chassis with the other two Skyactiv products. They elongate, widen or that the manual is not offered with this engine, as driving enthusiast will shorten the platform to suit each vehicle. In this case, it is slightly shorter be attracted to this engine right away. On the road, the steering is very then the CX-5. In fact, the new Mazda3 is lower, wider and slightly shorter quick and the feedback well above average. The previous Mazda3 was at than the last model but the wheelbase has been stretched by 60mm. This pushes the wheels out to the corner of the car, providing a solid stance and the top of the class in terms of driving dynamics and this new model takes it to a whole new level. I’m confident in saying that this new model feels improving interior space. Then Mazda went about hand forming the body to produce a style that conveys motion, even standing still. Sold as a sedan like a much more expensive car. or hatchback, the long hood, sweeping lines and powerful stance make a Verdict > statement in a class that can be rather subdued. The standard features list is strong, including keyless entry, push button start, Bluetooth and USB connectivity for $15,995. If you equip the base Inside > model with air conditioning and automatic transmission, the price jumps to The goal for this latest model was to have a dynamic looking interior, $18,795. The middle GS trim is the place most Canadians will shop and the fitted with materials and features not typically found in a compact car. The range is from $19,695-$22,595 for things like heated seats, leather dashboard is covered with, not only a soft material, rather a plush-feeling steering wheel, rain sensing wipers and more. The top GT with the larger dash. Then there is the dash-mounted communication screen placed in engine, 18-inch wheels, xenon headlamps, Bose stereo and navigation, the centre of the dash. This is standard on the middle GS and upper GT trim; the base GX is not so lucky. The driver can touch the screen to access

ranges from $25,855-$$29,855. As you can see, the price can ratchet up rather quickly. The upside is that this is a car that can provide solid, fun to drive transportation, wrapped in a stylish package. Higher-end models feel like a much more expensive car, with qualities not found previously in this class of car. So, the price might be justified.

Amy Lawson, 35, leads an active life.
She likes to be outdoors, to play sports, surf, bake and has a thriving social life.
Professionally, she was recently promoted to be the Territory Manager for Drydock Footwear Group. Her territory covers British Columbia and Alberta.
Being on the road is a sizeable component of her work.
When it came time to trade in her Nissan Xtrail – which she loved to pieces – she was torn when deciding what vehicle to purchase.
“The Xtrail has been a fabulous car, but I’ve outgrown it and need something that can better accommodate all my equipment,” she says.
In the process, she considered SUVs, hatchbacks and crossovers. The Ford Flex, Ford Escape, Honda Pilot, Mitsubishi Photos by: AlexAndrA strAub

Why I bought a minivan continued from page A12
Outlander were on her list to look at. Amy states, “When I started to research vehicles, the No. 1 thing on my priority list was interior space. I needed lots of it.” She continues, “I didn’t mind if the vehicle wasn’t sexy! I need functional. Good looks were secondary to me.” Because of her current role, it requires travelling around the Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, BC and Alberta with various promotional gear, display units, sample products and more. Not to mention, if she can pack in her sports equipment like her bicycle, snowboard or surfboard in, too, that would be even better. Price was also a factor for her. “I had a budget to work with, and I needed my payments to be around $500 a month,” Amy mentions. “And since I’d be spending a fair amount of time behind the wheel, I’d need something that was comfortable, too.”
When chatting about potential matches, the idea of a minivan came up.
The Diligent Driver
Over the five years ending with 2012 B.C. saw an average of 2,300 pedestrian involved collisions with 2,400 injuries and 60 fatalities. Almost 42% of these were aged 61 or over. Males tend to be involved more often with 35 deaths each year compared to 25 female deaths. While the majority of collision causes are driver related, over 20% of contributing factors were attributed to pedestrians.
I saw the excitement in her eyes.
In her personal life, she is not the typical minivan candidate. With no children to drive to hockey or soccer practice, some people might question her enthusiasm.
It’s probably a risky choice to start an article with a paragraph of statistics. People see numbers, not their community members at risk or the significance of their chances of colliding with a pedestrian. If there is no personal impact (pun intended), readers will skip along to something more interesting. I’m hoping that I still have your attention.
But to her, it seemed like the perfect fit. “I was just so excited about it. Minivans make life so much easier and you can just do so much with them,” she explains. “It made a lot more sense than a pickup and much more sense than an SUV.” A few minivans/minivan-esque vehicles she looked into were the Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna and Mazda5. Though the Honda and Toyota appealed to her, it was the Dodge Grand Caravan that had exactly what she was looking for. It was in her price range and had some handy features that would allow easy loading and unloading of her gear.

She even really likes its look.
heart beat quite a bit faster.
Amy tells me, “I can fit two mountain bikes inside with people and still have room for more.”
“There’s a lot of anxiety to buying a car. It’s a big purchase and you want to make sure you make the best choice you can.”
The Dodge Grand Caravan that she selected is the Crewe trim, which also came with some extras. She has a towing package, a rear DVD entertainment system (perfect for passing time on ferry rides!), Stow ‘n Go seats, remote keyless entry to the doors and liftgate and more.
And speaking of choices, the biggest question when selecting her chariot of choice?
While she can’t be happier with her purchase, the signing on the dotted line did make her
“Should I get the white one or the black one?!” she jokingly asked. She went with black. When looking back on the experience and looking at her Grand Caravan, she happily says, “What I didn’t think would be very sexy vehicle ended up being the sexiest
to me. And there’s so much space!” Ladies, if you’re looking at buying a new vehicle and would like some suggestions/ assistance, email the Car Girl’s Garage and you could potentially be featured in Driveway.

Best Classic Cars For Ten Grand Or Less
There are still plenty of interesting collectible cars out there for under 10 grand.
1966 Ford Bronco Most of the focus on the collector car world comes from televised auctions where six-figure cars are the norm, so it’s easy to conclude that the average person is priced out of the collector car world. But the fact of the matter is there are still plenty of interesting collectible cars out there for under 10 grand. Granted, they tend to be from the 1970s and 1980s rather than the 1950s or 1960s, but they’re all fun to drive and relatively easy to live with. Here are five of our favorites: 1. 1985-93 Ford Mustang: The third generation or “Fox” platform Mustang brought affordable V-8 muscle back to the masses. Although it was introduced in 1979, better breathing cylinder heads and a re-designed four-barrel carburetor in 1985 pushed horsepower above 200 for the first time since the early 1970s. The relatively light and simple design of the car made the best use of the newfound ponies. While the oldest are just under 30 years old, the collector world is starting to wake up. Still, nice 5.0-liter V-8 examples of all three body styles (coupe, hatchback and convertible) are still available in LX and GT trim for 10 grand or less.
2. 1966-77 Ford Bronco: The Bronco pushes the 10 grand budget the most and you’ll have to look hard to find an unrusted or unmodified original Bronco in this price range, but they do occasionally lurk on Craigslist. Competition for the likes of the International Harvester Scout, early Broncos look right in the way that early Land Rovers do and collectors have taken a big shine to them lately. Buy now. 3. 1965-69 Chevrolet Corvair Corsa coupe: The poor Corvair. Shunned by Chevy fans and import fans alike, it really is a poor-man’s Porsche, with styling on the second generation cars as nice as anything to come out of Germany, Italy or the U.S. at that time. Corvairs pioneered the use of turbocharging, and later cars could be made to handle quite well with some relatively inexpensive modifications, in spite of what Ralph Nader said. Incidentally, the 50th anniversary of the book “Unsafe at Any Speed” is coming up the year after next. Good reason to buy a Corvair, we think. Jay Leno loves his red Corsa Coupe. 4. 1983-91 Porsche 944 coupe: The vintage Porsche market is on fire right now, with some
cars appreciating 300 percent or more over the last five years. All have one thing in common — they’re air cooled and the engine is in the back. Water-cooled front-engine Porsches have yet to see the love from collectors, and we think that the 944 is one of the best of the bunch. A derivative of the nicely balanced but underpowered 924, the fender bulges and smoother and more powerful balance shaft-equipped twin-cam four was just was Dr. Porsche ordered to make the 944 a credible performance car. Maintenance doesn’t come cheaply (break a timing belt and you’ll wish you hadn’t been born), but the 944 is a bargain-priced precision instrument for dissecting curvy back roads. 5. 1976 Chevrolet Corvette: Malaise-era Corvettes get a bum rap from most Corvette fans but in reality, they’re quite nice and anything but pathetically slow. The move from gross to net horsepower makes it seem as though power was down more than it really was, and mid-1970s Corvettes came in some great colors with nice options like competition-inspired gymkhana suspension and aluminum wheels. Looks weren’t really compromised by bumper standards with Chevy’s solution of hiding the bumpers under body-colored urethane panels among the best of any manufacturer.

If you are a pedestrian, you can use the sidewalk, walk on the left if there isn’t, cross at crosswalks, look both ways, point your way to safety and wear reflective clothing or use lights. If you are a driver, realize that you must exercise care at all times to avoid colliding with a pedestrian. Think pedestrian when the car adjacent to you slows and stops in an unexpected place and when you approach residential areas, crosswalks, school and playground zones. Whew!

Near New: 2010-2012 Ford Fusion
Price Check 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion (October 2013)
Amid lingering global financial turmoil, recession recovery was already in high-gear at Ford, with an over a 40 per cent year-over-year sales gain that made Ford the top-selling automaker in Canada, in 2009. It was also the year it launched an all-new 2010 model year version of its popular mid-sized family car the Ford Fusion. The 2010 Fusion was offered in SE and SEL trim levels with a choice of a 2.5-litre I4 or a 3.0-litre V6 engines and a 3.5-litre V6 powered an all-new Fusion Sport model with all-wheel-drive. Ford also
The hybrid’s battery is a nickel-metal hydride type that’s smaller and lighter than competitors and it’s temperature is controlled by air extracted from the passenger cabin. Claimed city/highway fuel consumption is a very impressive 4.6/5.4 L/100km. Fuel consumption ratings for the other Fusion engines are as follows; 9.4/6.4 L/100 km (city/highway) for the 2.5-litre; 11.1/7.3 (city/highway) for the 3.0-litre V6 models; and 12.7/8.3 (city/highway) for the 3.5-litre with all-wheel drive. A new optional safety feature on the 2010 Fusion (well worth having) was a Blind Spot system that

Good reliability, owner satisfaction and low cost of repair ratings.
Prices vary depending on a used vehicle’s condition, mileage, usage and history. A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase.
2010 - A park pawl in the automatic transmission may not fully engage when shifted into “Park” and this could allow the vehicle to roll on an incline, if the park brake is not activated. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the park rod guide retention pin.
2010 Fusion Sport introduced its first hybrid edition of Fusion with an Atkinson cycle version of the 2.5-litre engine and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (e-CVT).
comes with Cross Traffic Alert, which was a unique to Ford system. Radar sensors in the rear side quarter panels can detect a moving object within a 20 metre (65-ft) range on either side. Great to have when vision is restricted (as it often is) when backing out of a parking stall.
Recalls on the 2010 to 2012 Ford Fusion: 2010 - A problem with the manual recliner mechanisms on the front seats may cause additional movement of the seat back. Dealers will replace the seat recliner mechanisms.
2010/2011- The lug nuts on vehicles equipped with 17 inch steel wheels may loosen and this could result in wheel separation. Dealers will replace the lug nuts on all four wheels, inspect the rear brake rotors and replace them as necessary. Drivingwheel@shaw.ca
This generation is also a quieter Fusion. Changes to reduce cabin noise levels include an acoustic windshield, thicker front-door glass, new hood insulators, additional sound deadening in the trunk and a new headliner in the cabin that’s made with an absorption material. An air filter that removes respiratory irritants and toxins from entering the cabin was also a new standard feature of Fusion. A new standard innovation was a fuel filler system called EasyFuel. Not only does it eliminate the need to remove a gas cap when filling up, it reduces evaporative emissions. You simply push the fuel-pump nozzle into a gas tank receptacle and it automatically seals shut when removed. Six standard airbags helped the Fusion attain a top five-star crash-test rating. If an air bag is deployed, Fusion also has a unique emergency alert system
that flashes the hazard warning lights and sounds the horn, to attract attention. An electronic stability-control system with a brake-activated traction control system was a new standard safety feature. The MyKey security system was made a standard feature on the 2011 Fusion, a spotter mirror, to help eliminate blind spots, was incorporated in the door mirrors and the SE edition got standard automatic headlights. No significant changes were made for 2012. Good reliability, owner satisfaction and low cost of repair ratings helped the 2012 Ford Fusion get a “Recommend” rating from Consumer Reports. Ford Fusion buyers also benefit from having a good supply of them on the market and used prices tend to be reasonable. A potentially great value pre-owned purchase.
Powered by wind: BMW gets greener BMW believes there is a big future for wind power in its cars. No, not for the propulsion of the prestige brand’s models but the making of their sleek machines of the future. The energy Long before visitors arrive used is 50 percent at the auto manufacturer’s new hi-tech factory in this of that required economically depressed to turn out a region of what was once communist East Germany, conventional car they greeted with a wave Keith Morgan from four giant wind turbines. Those metal giants will power the production of the impressive four-seater BMW i3, which will roll silently off the production line later this year. Silently, not just because it’s an all-electric vehicle but also because the entire manufacturing process rarely rises above a whisper. The BMW i3 is the first of the manufacturer’s projects for which the environmental sustainability objectives were determinedly set at the same high standards as the economic goals applied to the manufacturing process. To achieve those lofty dual goals, the BMW Group retains close control over the complete production process from the carbon fibre production, which starts in a hydroelectric powered plant in Moses Lake, Wa. Entire noisy and stinky processes associated with manufacturing in steel are gone. Robots screw and bond the important parts together and send the shells on their way, suspended form an overhead rail. Happy workers can actually hear each other chat down on the factory floor, bathed in sunlight and breathing freely courtesy of an efficient hi-tech ventilation system.
BMW believes there is a big future for wind power in its cars.
Amazingly, the energy used is 50 percent of that required to turn out a conventional car and 70 percent less water is used. My group roamed around looking for waste, which turned out to be a waste (of time) in itself. The bits and bats and ‘wasted’ trim are gathered up and recycled for use elsewhere along the production line. BMW even boasts the lithium ion batteries that will power each car’s motor will outlive the individual car’s life. They can be used as storage batteries when the car is put out to pasture, sorry, recycled. If one of the eight modules should fail then a replacement easily drops in rather than there be a need for an entire battery replacement. The lightweight body is also designed with a view to quick and economical repair in the event of a collision. Body parts again drop into place
with the minimum of fuss and cost. They say the cost of a fix will likely mirror that of putting a BMW 1-series back on the road after a similar crash. Now we await the car, expected to sell for around $45,000, to see if it lives up to its green promise on the road. BMW boasts the electric motor will generate 170 horsepower and take off from zero to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds, and can accelerate from 80-to-120-km/h in just 5.4 seconds – important when passing on the freeway. The i3 offers a driving range of 160 kilometres, which should ease the range anxiety that comes into play among prospective purchasers of electric vehicles. email@example.com twitter.com/changegears

Tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) FACTS AND TIPS FOR DRIVERS It can be very difficult, if not impossible, to tell if tires are under-inflated just by looking at them. Yet most drivers don’t check tire pressure regularly. Proper tire pressure saves money, fuel consumption, helps the environment – and saves lives. Having TPMS on vehicles helps to keep Canada’s roads safe by giving drivers the critical warning they need when one or more of their tires has low air pressure. Facts on Maintaining Proper Tire Pressure: Saving lives – vehicle safety and performance Under-inflation is the leading cause of tire failure2. Even if your tires look fine, they could be underinflated by as much as 20 per cent1. According to a recent study, about 50 per cent of the vehicles on the road in Canada have at least one tire that is either over or underinflated by more than 10 per cent. In fact, 10 per cent of all vehicles surveyed had at least one tire underinflated by 20 per cent1. When your tires don’t have the right amount of air, the sides flex, bend and build heat. Underinflated tires compromise your vehicle’s steering, braking and cornering abilities. Operating a vehicle with just one tire underinflated by 8 PSI can reduce the life of the tire by 15,000 km1. Saving fuel and the environment Annually, 643 million litres of extra fuel are consumed by Canadian vehicles because of improper tire maintenance practices. As a result, over one million tonnes of carbon dioxide are unnecessarily released into the environment4. Canadians dispose of 29 million used tires every year, which has a significant impact on landfills. Even modest improvements in extending tire life could have a significant positive impact on our environment as energy used to produce new tires emits harmful pollutants into the atmosphere4. Saving money Fuel consumption increases by 1 per cent for every 5 per cent
of under-inflation. Operating a vehicle with just one tire under-inflated by 8 PSI can reduce the life of the tire by 15,000 km and can increase the vehicle’s fuel consumption by 4 per cent4. Example: • If fuel costs $1.32/litre and it takes approximately 9.1 litres per 100 km = $12.01 / 100 km. • Increasing fuel consumption by 4 per cent = $12.47/100 km • If you average 22,000 km / year, you would save $100 annually ($2642 vs. $2743) by keeping proper tire pressure Maintaining proper tire pressure could save you approximately two weeks of fuel a year, enough to pay for one full set of tires over the average 9-year life of a vehicle5. Under-inflation also reduces tire life. Driving with tires that are under-inflated by 8 PSI will increase tire wear by 16% (approximately 15,000 km). This will hit your pocketbook as you will have to replace tires sooner than you would if they were properly maintained4. Tire Pressure Monitoring System TPMS will trigger the dashboard symbol to illuminate when one or more tires are under-inflated by 25 per cent. TPMS improves your vehicle’s handling and stability, decreasing your chances of catastrophic tire failure and having an accident. While not currently mandated, an estimated 70 per cent of new vehicles (model year 2007+) sold in Canada are TPMSequipped3. Starting in 2007, TPMS became a legislated feature on all passenger vehicles sold in the U.S. Tips for Drivers: Get in the habit of manually checking your tire pressure at least once a month or before a long road trip. Even if your vehicle has TPMS installed, regular tire maintenance is the best way to increase your safety. The best way to get the most accurate reading is to check your tire pressure before you drive, when the tire is cold.
To determine if your vehicle has TPMS, look for the TPMS symbol on the dashboard when you first turn your key to the on position. Consult your owner’s manual for more information. When installing winter tires or buying new wheels, be sure to have TPMS sensors installed in the wheels. Failure to do this will make your TPMS inoperative. Large temperature drops, usually during winter, can cause the low tire pressure warning to come on. Have a tire service centre properly check your tire pressure and TPMS if this happens. TPMS batteries, expected to last between five and seven years (or approximately 140,000 – 160,000km/year), are encased and can’t be replaced. Since some of the first TPMS-equipped vehicles have now been on the road for more than five years, drivers will soon need to see TPMS specialists for maintenance. Once the battery dies, a new TPMS sensor must be installed. When the TPMS illuminates on your dashboard, it means one or more of your tires may be at least 25 per cent below recommended inflation pressure. Pull over and check your tire pressure. Once checked, if the tires appear normal, proceed with caution to a tire service centre to have them properly inspected. Sources 1. Transport Canada 2. Canada Safety Council 3.

But a recent a jaunt was made much less so by an erratic driver, whose actions required all fellow travellers to watch his antics with great care and attention. The young guy at the wheel of a late model Honda CR-V constantly changed speed, below and beyond the posted speed limit. If he wasn’t passing and cutting in too early, he was inexplicably reducing his speed and dropping back in the passing lane. Thank goodness, he pulled off at Merritt.

Mayor: hiding the homeless sends ‘terrible signal’ Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR
A winter shelter for the homeless will be set up for the next five months beside the downtown Fire Hall on Dogwood Street – a location highly visible to the community. At Tuesday night’s council meeting, Coun. Andy Adams asked why the shelter – a mobile unit made from a steel shipping container – couldn’t stay where it’s currently sitting which is in front of Radiant Life Church. The church is tucked in behind the fire hall and next to Coast Realty on Cypress Street. That didn’t sit well with Coun. Ron Kerr who took exception to what he perceived as an implication that the homeless should be out of sight. Kerr said he believes having the shelter on Dogwood will be good for the community. “I believe this addresses one of the issues here of not hiding the shelter away but putting it in the open where we can all be proud of it, where Campbell River can be proud of it and our efforts to house the homeless,” said Kerr who recently canvassed nearby businesses. “With the exception of two businesses, I had overwhelming support. Most people realize that the homeless are living in that neighbourhood and what we can do to improve their lives is good for all of us.” Most of the businesses support having the shelter nearby, including the fire department. However, Corrado Ventures Incorporated which operates Domcor traffic

control and Safety Net Security as well as Coast Realty Group have some concerns. Patrick Corrado, the chief operating officer of Corrrado Ventures, asked council to reject the location because it’s using the spot as overflow parking for its employees and customers. Domcor was also planning to use the overflow parking for those attending its recently added full-service training school’s day and night classes. Coast Realty manager Travis Stevenson said he’s concerned about his employes’ and clients safety with having the shelter nearby but said
he is supportive of the location for the short term. Taking those concerns into account, Adams tried twice at Tuesday’s meeting to get a straight answer as to why the shelter couldn’t stay where it is now. “I’m not sure I understand (Kerr’s) comment of having it visible when it’s going to be put behind a fence to meet the aesthetics,” Adams said. “I think this is a really good initiative (and) the implication of wanting to tuck it away is certainly not the case. I just asked a question as to what was wrong with the location it’s currently in.”
Radiant Life Church Pastor Art Van Holst, who was sitting in the public gallery, responded that the unit is taking up 10 of the church’s parking spaces sitting where it is. As for the fencing, Kerr agreed it does partially obscure the shelter. “I agree with you that it’s not visible (but) there will be a sign there advertising it as the homeless shelter and I do feel this is something the city can be proud of. It doesn’t need to hide in a back alley or in the back of a park.” Mayor Walter Jakeway agreed. “We’re not ashamed of these people – these are

our citizens,” Jakeway said. “But putting it in a back lane, we’re sending a terrible signal that we’re ashamed.” Jakeway added he’s confident that if problems arise, the shelter could be relocated. Council also agreed the spot beside the fire hall will be a temporary location and a new location will be considered for next season. That idea came from Coun. Claire Moglove who was left conflicted at Tuesday’s meeting.
“This is a way to alleviate the situation for the most vulnerable in our community even though…I don’t believe the location being suggested is the best location long-term,” Moglove said. “If it wasn’t for the fact that in order to get funding from BC Housing you have to be operational by November 1, I might not have approved this particular location but the fact of the matter is it has to be done. If there are problems, council will deal with them.”
Moglove said her concern with the location is that having a homeless shelter in such a busy area is counter-productive to the development of downtown. The shelter will be open Nov. 1-March 31, 2014 from 7 p.m.-7 a.m. every night. Radiant Life Church will have at least one worker supervising the shelter through the night. The shelter can accommodate 16 people, comes equipped with heat and electricity and has one shared bathroom.

Bhangra, celtic, and electronica collide
The Tidemark Theatre is proud to present Delhi 2 Dublin on Thursday, Nov.14 at 7:30 p.m. Delhi 2 Dublin’s songs and the band itself reflect the cultural diversity present in many major cities around the world. They challenge the definition of urban music and drag it to the intersection of Bhangra, Celtic, Dub Reggae and Electronica. They have created their own niche. “As a band, we’re not interested in making the same album over and over again,” says Tarun Nayar, who handles electronics with the band. “The music we’re inspired by changes almost weekly. At the moment, we’re loving Santigold, Major Lazer, Jazzy B, Burial, Buraka Som Sistema, Four Tet, Moombahton, and tons of underground stuff, which is quite different from the music we were listening to when we made our last album.” The band has played several of the top festivals in Canada, the UK and the U.S. and, in 2011, expanded its horizons to include performances in the Pacific Rim and Europe. A new album and new international touring opportunities all signal that originality and evolution are all part of the Delhi 2 Dublin experience.
Delhi 2 Dublin brings Thursday, Nov. 14.
Described by one magazine as the “United Nations of rock ‘n’ roll”, they have become one of Canada’s most buzzedabout bands. This year will only see them enhancing that reputation. Turn Up The Stereo is both the title of the new Delhi 2 Dublin album and the philosophy behind the release. Nayar, who plays tabla in the band, adds, “It’s also a metaphor for us turning it up in many ways for this album. We spent ten times the amount of time and effort writing this album than we have in the
Nayar and Seran, joined by violinist Sara Fitzpatrick, guitarist and sitar player Andrew Kim and dhol player Ravi Binning, rented a house and jammed out on the songs. “One of the most enlightening exercises was the day we spent playing all our songs acoustically on a guitar. We’d never been able to do that with our material - it really showed us the strengths and weaknesses of the songs,” says Nayar. Tickets are $21 for members plus applicable fees and taxes and can be purchased at the Box its electic mix of bhangra, celtic, dub reggae and electronica to the Tidemark Theatre stage on Office from Tuesday – Saturday between 12 and 4 p.m., or found online past.

BC Hydro spokesman gives a sneak peak Wednesday of the new intrepretative centre near Elk Falls. The centre opens to the public on Nov. 12.
New centre has local touch Paul Rudan
CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The new BC Hydro interpretive centre near Elk Falls has a local touch in more ways than one. The centre will officially open to the public Nov. 12, but a few stakeholders and media were given a sneak peak Wednesday. The centre is located in the new parking area for Elk Falls Provincial
Park. It was created to make room for the $1 billion BC Hydro project that will begin next year to replace the John Hart Generating Station. The interpretive centre features large panels displaying the past, present and future of the John Hart hydroelectric facilities and property. The cool part is the touchscreen display that clearly depicts the Campbell River gener-
ating system, along with the John Hart facility and construction-related videos. More videos will be added as construction proceeds over the next five years. The touchscreen and videos were developed by two local partners: Mark Wunsch of Greencoastmedia and Leah Tremain of Tremain media. They’re also working to develop other media resources for BC Hydro
projects around the province. “It’s a really good opportunity,” said Tremain. When it opens next month, the centre will be open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The days and hours of operations will be adjusted over the life of the John Hart project. The interpretive centre will be removed around the end of 2018.

Styling and smiling in the face of cancer Lagotte then turns her attention to someone more deserving of her skills, Zschiedrich who takes a seat in the stylist’s chair. Lagotte adjusts the sizes and then fits Zschiedrich with wigs in shades of blonde, red and dirty blonde. Zschiedrich is partial to the red, but the blonde one looks good too. She takes a good look in the mirror and smiles back at the reflection. Lagotte smiles too at a job well done. “Before cancer, I was never sick a day in my life,” says Zschiedrich. “I was told I could either live with or give up. I’m not giving up.”

fter another battle with cancer, her hair is finally growing back, but Paulette Zschiedrich knows it won’t be long. She soon faces another round of chemotherapy and and her thick crop of silver hair will fall out yet again. “You keep fighting back. I am an optimist,” she says with a smile seemingly too big for someone who has suffered so much. By her 60th birthday, the entire mother’s side of Zschiedrich’s family had perished from multiple forms of cancer. “We’re genetically disposed,” she simply explains. Her father, after a lifetime of working with asbestos, died of lung cancer at age 62. Espohagal cancer struck her first husband – the father of her three children. But after surgery to remove his esophagus, he contracted a bacterial infection and died. One of her daughters successfully fought off two different cancer attacks. And, just two weeks ago, her brother succumbed to cancer. “I’m surrounded by it,” says Zschiedrich. “I thought I had missed it, but five years ago I was diagnosed with nonHodgkins lymphoma. I was 62.” That was 2007 and it was only the beginning of cancer treatment. More tumours were found on her ovarian

tubes and the next year bigger tumours were found around her spine. Last year, cancer showed up in her brain, liver, heart and neck. In July she finished a year of chemotherapy and this December, when she turns 67, Zschiedrich will go through another form of cancer treatment. “Every time it metastasis they have to try something different,” she says. “It’s just not a nice thing, but you can’t let it win.” From day one of her diagnosis, Zschiedrich has survived thanks to modern medicine and a super-positive disposition to live.
That’s why, on this day, she’s visiting the Canadian Cancer Society office in Campbell River to have someone fuss over her. “There, that looks good,” says Michelyne Lagotte, a hairstylist who volunteers her time to make other women look great and to feel good about themselves while battling a horrendous disease. After losing both parents to cancer, Lagotte decided to give back. Eight years ago she began volunteering at the cancer society in Nanaimo and recently she relocated to the Comox Valley. Lagotte now volun-
teers at the Courtenay and Campbell River cancer society offices. She fits ladies with wigs, scarves or hats, and ensures everything is clean and germ-free, because that’s what you do for people who have severely weakened immune systems from cancer treatment. “To me, being a hairstylist means making people feel good about themselves. That’s what this is all about,” says Lagotte. The wig room at the cancer society office is in its own cozy office. It’s outfitted with a plush red chair and love seat, a stylist’s centre for Lagotte, and backed by
Breast Cancer Awareness month is coming to a close, but women need to take care of them-
selves year-round, says Linda Lazare, president of the Campbell River chapter of the Canadian Cancer Society. “Eat a good low-fat diet with lots of fruits and vegetables,” she says. Limit your salt, alcohol and caffeine, get plenty of regular exercise and get your breasts checked by your doctor and get your mammograms regularly as the earlier it is diagnosed the much better chances for survival.” It’s good advice from a breast cancer survivor. “I decided I needed to learn everything I could about this disease,” says Lazare. “I changed my lifestyle, especially diet and got on a regular exercise program. I keep my stress level under control, so my immune system can stay strong and I make sure and get Continued Page B2
a wall of white styrofoam heads all donning wigs aligned in various shades. “The best thing is, they’re free. All we ask is you return them,” says Lagotte. They’re synthetic wigs too, so you have to be careful around the stove, she explains. If you bend down too far and get too close while checking out that roast, you might just singe the bangs, and that just won’t do for the stylin’ Lagotte who inspects her current inventory. “The selection is not too bad, but some are dated. No one wants to wear a 30-year-old style,” she cooly advises.

hink it’s ‘all over’ until springtime? Think again. Mother Earth is at her finest when she tosses sparkling oddities into the winter woods. Mushrooms with
closely-packed pores, rather than gills, not only survive freezing temperatures, but are often at their best from October until March. Occasionally, one will observe a woody type
of this fungus, called a polypore growing from a dying or decayed log or stump. When that fungus excretes liquid, it creates the illusion of a mushroom weeping, a TELUS STORE OR AUTHORIZED DEALER

phenomenon particularly striking when sunlight streams through the droplets, causing the fungus to sparkle. Nature photographers capture images through the drops using close-up ‘macro’ settings. The scientific term for this state is ‘guttation’, the exudation of liquid from the uninjured surface of a plant. ‘Dew’, which condenses from the atmosphere onto the plant surface, is not the same thing. Humans breathe out carbon dioxide and water (as a gas) into the atmosphere; many fungi exude the same metabolic products, some invisibly, while others excrete excess liquid visibly as drops. Some polypores ‘weep’ weakly acid water during growth spurts, when metabolism increases, although droplet formation may occur for many reasons. Fungal guttation remains a topic requiring further scientific investigation. One of our most memorable fungal finds was discovering Bleeding Hydnellum during a hike in Strathcona Park. This aptly named species, during growth spurts, exudes blood-red droplets over its creamy flesh. On that timely and gory note, I wish all readers a Happy Halloween.

Judo medal haul T
he C ampb el l River Judo Club sent 16 competitors this past weekend to the BC Judo Championships in Abbotsford and brought back an impressive haul of five gold, six silver and three bronze medals. Starting off the weekend was Senseis Darcy Yule and Chris Petersen who competed in two Kata divisions (Nage no Kata & Goshin Jitsu) winning gold and silver respectively. Owen Wellard, the youngest CRJC member attending the tournament was the first to win gold and highlighted his tournament with a beautiful O Goshi (major hip
throw) for the win. Other gold medal performances were turned in by Jamiliya Wellard, Anthony Henry and Maggie Cramb – who was participating in her first tournament after joining the club this season. Haley Henry, hot off her bronze medal at Canadian nationals in July won two silver medals; one in her own division and one in the next age bracket above hers. Thomas Connor, Wyatt Huggins and Emily Matkovich also brought home second place finishes. Tommy Pfeifer, Kelsey Painter and Jake Misky won bronze medals and
showed a lot of heart in some very tough matches, many against more experienced opponents. Rounding out the tournament was Daniel Henry, Marc Comeau and Jason Wellard who all three competed for the first time in the Brown/ Black belt divisions and had great showings with the highlight being Comeau throwing a 150 kg opponent and winning the match by pinning him to the mats.

At 13:29 of the second period, the Bulldogs scored off a pass out of the cor-

Despite an edge in power play chances the Tyees were unable to score. At the end of the second period the Bulldogs remained up by a goal. The Tyees had a couple of power-play chances near the
end of the third period, but were unable to close the gap on the Bulldogs who took the win 1-0.

Masters play one for the ages
On Sunday morning, the Campbell River Masters over 35 soccer team produced one its best results in years against a typically dominant Powell River squad. The Masters carried the play all day in a 5-0 romp. The team used a well-balanced attack that started on the back line with a strong showing from Colan Grootenboer and Graeme Dirks in the middle. The strong play carried throughout the lineup with two late first half goals coming from Josh Fyfe and Ahmed Siah. The lead grew in the second half with three more goals coming from Rob Rentz, James Kay and another from Fyfe. Any offence from the Powell River side was stifled by Masters’ keeper, Adam Panziera who posted the shutout. Campbell River’s next game is Friday night in Qualicum.

A Look Back
THE HISTORY OF THE CAMPBELL RIVER AREA
Going to the show T
he year 1947 brought an exciting change to Campbell River, then a village of 2,200 people, when the Van Isle Theatre opened its doors and made a real cinema available to residents for the first time. The new theatre offered a movie every night of the week except Sunday, plus a matinee on Saturday afternoons. Each film ran for three consecutive evenings before being replaced by a new one. The Van Isle Theatre was an impressive building. Modern in style, the Van Isle’s exterior combined Art Deco design and Streamline curved architecture. Inside was a spacious, comfortable lobby with a ticket booth and a candy counter, and in the theatre itself 599 seats faced the wide screen. While stars such as Cary Grant, Loretta Young, Rita Hayworth and Orson Wells graced
the screen, the Van Isle also was the setting for live productions. One of the first was a three-act comedy Here Comes Charlie presented by the local “Rotary Anns” in April 1948. Concerts also took place in the theatre. Live classical music was heard when the Campbell River Kinsmen Club sponsored a presentation by the Courtenay Concert Orchestra. The Van Isle’s popularity as an entertainment centre was equally enjoyed as a place where people met and visited before the show. Noreen Heggie, manager of the theatre for many years, noted, “People would come not just for the movies but for the socializing. They would come early to sit around in the big lobby, to see people they hadn’t seen in ages.” In 1953, the newspaper announced the “World Premiere” of the film Country Magistrate, to be seen “for the
first time anywhere” in the Van Isle Theatre. The National Film Board documentary, filmed in Campbell River, featured Roderick Haig-Brown and included many local people. The gala premiere was attended by such special guests as the province’s deputy attorney-general, the RCMP assistant commissioner and several other magistrates, and the show was pronounced to be a thoroughly good film. Two “blockbuster” shows, Dr. Zhivago and The Sound of Music, fetched the higher than usual admission fee of $2 for adults, $1.50 for students and $1 for children, in 1968. Regular admission at that time, for a film such as To Sir With Love starring Sidney Poitier, was $1.25 for adults. The theatre was always open at Christmas. “Mr. Bickle (the owner) thought it was important that people have someplace to go,” The Van Isle Theatre (above and below, left) opened in 1947 as a movie theatre. In 1987 it was converted into a performing arts theatre and renamed the Tidemark.
said Sherry Heggie, daughter of the manager. Her mother would decorate the theatre and there was always a Christmas tree. Sherry and her brother spent a lot of time at the Van Isle, helping with a variety of tasks like cleaning, taking tickets and ushering. Even her dog took part, “He cleaned up the Smarties that were dropped on the floor. That was his job.” The Van Isle served Campbell River’s moviegoers for almost four decades, but television, home video rentals and new distribution rights; as well as the arrival of a new twin theatre, all had a negative impact on the theatre business. Happily, the

Van Isle took on a new role in the life of the community when in 1987, it was converted into a performing arts theatre and reopened as the Tidemark, as welcome a development to the citizens of Campbell River as the cinema had been 40 years before. For a glimpse at the past, be sure to visit the Museum at Campbell River’s Van Isle theatre, which with its rosecoloured velvet curtains and plum walls is reminiscent of the art deco style of the original Van Isle theatre and features three films: Fisherman’s Fall, featuring Roderick Haig-Brown, The Big Rock Story and The Destruction of Ripple Rock.

spot. In addition, Campbell River product and team captain Dan Cato was named to first team B.C. provincial allstars for 2013. Cato has been selected provincial allstar all five years with VIU as well as national allstar and top defender awards. Over his career he has
collected three national medal – one of each gold, silver and bronze – as well as four provincial medals – gold and silver. Another Campbell River product, midfielder Blaze Roberts will also be appearing in the finals this weekend. Considering the provincial hosts do not receive a bye into the
tournament, the last thing the M’s wanted to do was have their string of five-straight appearances end this year. It is pressure they have dealt with all year, and at times has cost the young team. They did a lot of learning on the fly the last couple of weeks. “For a lot of them, it
Tyees’ game arrived after players The Campbell River Booster Juice Bantam A Tyees travelled to Port Alberni on Saturday to play their final exhibition game against the Port Alberni Bulldogs. Un f o r t u n a t e l y i t seems the Tyees collective expended so much energy on the fish ladder to make it up and over The Hump that it took them more than two periods to recuperate. The two teams came into this game with polar-opposite mindsets. The Tyees were somewhat relaxed and feeling relatively good about themselves after finishing a Thanksgiving weekend tournament with a 2-2 record against quality competition. The scuttlebutt in the hallways was that they could have finished 3-1 and played in a bronze medal game if they somehow could spike their water with that invaluable intangible item known as confidence. The Bulldogs entered the matchup with a haggard, hound-dog feeling

of weariness as they had not fared so well in their respective Thanksgiving weekend tournament. Like Jimmy The Greek sometimes said, “throw the history out the window and forget about it because it just doesn’t matter in this one.” Port Alberni demonstrated quite capably to the Tyees that it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. They came out running-andgunning and which seemed to put the run on the Tyees. Jared Super and Drew Price were called up for this game due to injuries, each getting their first taste of bantam rep hockey. Both acquitted themselves well; neither tried to do too much and played within the team’s structure. The Bulldogs seemed to win the key battles for loose pucks and started to launch bombs on the Tyee net. Ensuing scrambles generated more opportunities and the red light behind goalies Carson Bjorgsford and
Dominik Bellefleur was lit. Brady Kratzmann did crack the goose egg for the Tyees, as he was sent on a breakaway by Lukas Lund and Owen Boyd. Kratzmann used his speed to take the puck in on the Bulldog net and went post-in as he buried his scoring chance. By the time the Tyees were re-energized, there was less than 10 minutes left in the third period and the score was already 6-1 for the Bulldogs. That’s the way it ended despite a few scrambles near the Bulldog net. “This wasn’t our best effort of the season and it showed on the scoreboard. We have to start every game with the same sense of urgency that we finished this game,” said head coach Scott Kratzmann. “We are bringing up our affiliates and working them into the line-up. By doing this now, our team is going to be in a better position later in the season. Players have to remain committed to their teammates and
move the puck to the open player in a timely manner. Give-and-goes will usually beat solo rushes in the long run. Our coaching staff is helping our players to develop their self-motivation and getting them to raise their personal standards of excellence. “These young people need to take to heart the sports axiom that how you practice is how you play and the universal truth that no-one can do it for you. This isn’t a sprint; it is a marathon. They are improving physically literally every day so now we need to apply that type of workout regime to their emotional and mental abilities. The coaches have seen some improvements in those areas and we are very encouraged by it.” The Booster Juice Bantam A Tyees have been placed in Division 2 for the regular season. There’s no rest for the weary as they have a pair of road games this weekend; Saturday in Oceanside and Sunday back in Port Alberni.

University WolfPack to open the tournament on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. Douglas and Langara colleges will play in the other semifinal at 2:30 p.m. The men’s and women’s bronze medal games go a 10 a.m. on Sunday with the women’s gold medal game at 12:30 p.m. and the men’s final at 3 p.m.
The Mariners are feeling confident about their chances. “We know that we are in against some very tough competition, but our goal is to win it, now that we’ve got ourselves there,” said Merriman. “We jumped some very big obstacles just to get there, so hopefully the players can be rewarded.”

Making Habitat a home

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
hen Kenna Elford was chosen to be a Habitat for Humanity family she was given more than just four walls and a roof over her head – she was given the gift of life. Before being handed the keys to her Habitatbuilt home, Elford was struggling to make ends meet. Her mother had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and Elford needed a clean place to move her mother and teenage son, Nathan, into. One week after her mom’s diagnosis, as Elford was moving her mom in with her, Nathan had his left leg crushed by a car. Needing a place free of mould for her ailing mother and without
stairs because of her son’s recent accident, Elford was left with few options. “We had to move into this horribly expensive apartment,” Elford said. “The rent was 75 per cent of my income.” A friend, Karen Melanson, was on the Habitat for Humanity board and told Elford she should apply for one half of the duplex being built by Habitat for Humanity on Maple Street. Elford, thinking she wasn’t eligible, reluctantly picked up an application from the Campbell River ReStore and filled it out. She was surprised six months later when, during a community information session for the build, Elford was announced as Campbell River’s first Habitat for Humanity family. The house turned out
to be more of a blessing than she could have ever imagined. Her mom, who was given weeks to live, lived another three years and was able to watch the walls go up around her and eventually live in the home. “My mom would come out every day with me to the build site,” said Elford who volunteered as the site manager. “She’d sit on the porch in her toque with her Tim Horton’s. It gave her a purpose, to hang in there. She wanted to see us move into this house. This house I think helped my mom live longer. In that respect it was such a gift to have somewhere to care for my mom. I get emotional just talking about it.” As a mother, Elford said she was able to provider her teenage son with the stability he had
been craving. “We got this house and he looked at me and asked ‘does this mean I get to go to the same school until I graduate and we don’t have to move again?’” Elford said. “That was huge, it changed my life.” It also allowed her to follow her passion – working with kids. Having the house allowed Elford to work for the John Howard Society as a care home worker for kids in the youth and detox stability program. Elford took in youths aged 12-19 for up to three months until they were able to get their lives back on track. Giving back Elford is now volunteering as a spokesperson for Habitat for Humanity and she plans on helping

to pay a mortgage, with payments based on 30 per cent of the family’s income, but the mortgage is interest free. Cathy Thomas, who lives behind Elford on the other side of the Maple Street duplex, said the mortgage payments are reasonable as is her hydro because the homes were built to be energy efficient.
Thomas, who lives on her own with her teenage daughter Amanda, was living in an apartment on Dogwood Street that had no heating in her daughter’s room before Habitat stepped in. Thomas, who picked up a housing application on a whim, was as shocked as Elford was when she found out she had been selected as the second Habitat home

owner. “We were surprised,” Thomas said. “I got the phone call and I started bawling. I was water works.” To fulfill the 500 volunteer hours required from homeowners, Thomas helped paint the bathroom of her new home, and like, Elford put in volunteer hours at the ReStore. “It was worth it,” Thomas said. “It just changed mine and the kid’s life.” Become a Habitat family
Habitat is encouraging families to start applying for the Hilchey homes. Applications, as well as a family criteria package can be picked up at the Campbell River ReStore at 1725 B Willow Street near Chevron in Campbellton. To be eligible for a home families must have at least one child under the age of 18, be willing to put in 500 hours of sweat equity or volunteer work and have a regular income that is not Employment Insurance or Income Assistance.

Tips on Teaching Your Kids about Money Make earning money fun and rewarding. Attaching a value to certain chores allows children to associate working with earning. The harder the work the higher the pay – on a realistic scale. Avoid buying toys, games, and other luxuries for kids during random trips to the store. Keep special occasion gifts to those you can save for, and make this a lesson as well. Make a point of talking to your children about what things cost, including paying cash versus carrying a debt. Make sure they understand the difference between a “want” and a “need”. Most importantly, kids tend to mimic what they see parents do, not always what is said, so make sure you are “practicing what you preach”. Submitted by Garat Financial

Financial pointers for expecting parents
Determine your necessary income. Many couples have hypothetical discussions regarding children and their finances, but until they receive the news that a baby is on the way, those conversations have a way of being put on the back burner. Now that a baby is on the way,
couples need to revisit those discussions, and determining how much income they need is a great place to start. The dual-income household has become the norm in the 21st century, when the cost of living has skyrocketed. But couples must determine if it’s in the family’s best interest for both parents to keep working once their child is born. The cost of childcare is considerable, and it may be in a family’s best interest for just one parent to work until the child reaches school age. Consider your total income as well as your financial obligations (i.e., mortgage, car payments, etc.) and then shop around for the cost of childcare. If it makes more sense to become a single-in-
come household, even if it’s just for a few years, then you will have another important decision to make. Determine who is staying home. Couples who have decided that it’s in their best interests to become a single-income household once their child is born must decide who will be staying home and who will continue working. It’s easy to say the parent who is earning the most should continue working, but that decision is not so black and white. Consider the cost of healthcare offered by each of your employers. Some healthcare plans are significantly more affordable than others, and this might weigh heavily on your decision, especially if both parents are earning relatively similar incomes. Another thing to consider is each of your opportunities for advancement at your current company and within your field. Earning potential should factor heavily into the decision as to which parent will con-

tinue working, especially if you plan to have another child down the road. The conversation as to who will continue working should be treated delicately. Discuss your housing needs. Couples who are expecting a child often feel this is a great time to abandon apartment living and buy
a home of their own. But chances are you can comfortably manage to live in your apartment for a few more years after your child is born. Those extra years of apartment living can give you the chance to save more money so you can afford a nicer home in a better neighborhood that boasts better schools. Or apartment living for a
few more years may give you more time to save and place a larger down payment on your home down the road. The larger the initial down payment, the lower your monthly mortgage payment, so it might be in your best interest to squirrel away a few more dollars before you go house hunting.

How to keep kids safe on the Internet Parents of yesteryear seldom had to worry about protecting their kids from strangers once their kids were safely inside the home. But since the dawn of the Internet, parents know the safety of their private residence can be easily compromised. Be it through social media, chat rooms or other online outlets, strangers can now gain access to children in a variety of ways, many of which are seemingly innocent. The prevalence of online predators has many parents looking for ways to protect their kids when they go online. Some parents may want to outlaw the Internet altogether until kids reach high school, but such a reaction can put kids at a significant disadvantage academically by barring them from what is often a valuable resource. Parents who want their kids to get the most out of the Internet without putting them in danger of online predators can employ the following tips.
Warn kids about the potential risks and dangers of the Internet. Many parents would prefer their kids did not know about Internet predators, but that wish should not outweigh the desire to keep kids safe. Teach kids that people on the Internet may not always behave Parents can filter honestly, misrepresenting themcertain websites selves in an effort to gain access so children cannot to unsuspecting and often trusting kids. Teach kids to take the same access them approach with online strangers that they do with strangers they see in public, never sharing any personal information or engaging in conversation with someone they don’t know. Teach kids to tell an adult they trust immediately if an online stranger contacts them.
Use the filters at your disposal. Parents can filter certain Web sites so children cannot access them. Filter sites geared toward adults as well as any sites where kids might be at risk of coming into contact with potential predators. Block chat rooms and other sites where adults can pose as kids and make sure kids who are involved with social media have made their online profiles private and only accessible to friends and family members. Monitor kids’ online activity on a daily basis. The Internet is such a commonly used tool that many kids go online at least once per day. Homework assignments and other school functions are commonly posted online, and many kids communicate with friends via the Internet as much as they do in person. Parents should monitor their kids’ online activity on a daily basis, scanning their Web history and examining their social media interactions to be sure kids aren’t putting themselves in harm’s way. Kids may grow more resistant to such monitoring as they grow older, but parents cannot turn a blind eye to kids’ online activity simply to avoid a confrontation.
Protecting kids online involves monitoring their smartphone activity.
Keep the computer in a common area. The family computer should be kept in a common area where parents can monitor how much time kids are spending online, what they’re doing and who they’re speaking to while surfing the Internet. When kids have their own computers or tablets in their bedrooms, parents can easily lose track of how much time kids are spending online. This makes it easier for online predators to gain access to kids, who have a harder time recognizing potential predators than adults. Remember kids can get online on their smartphones, too.

Computers are no longer the only way for kids to get online. More and more kids, especially those in high school, are doing their online surfing via their smartphones. Monitor kids’ mobile phone usage just like you do their computer usage. Peruse their call and texting history, and discuss any suspect usage with them immediately. Kids spend more time online now than ever before, and that usage figures to increase in the coming years as the Internet becomes increasingly accessible. Parents should take steps to ensure their youngsters are safe when going online.

William (Bill) Reedyk passed away at the age of 75 years on Thursday, October 17, 2013 at his home in Campbell River, BC. Bill was born on December 3, 1937 in Westmaas, Netherlands, to Len and Mary Reedyk. After immigrating to Canada and serving in the Canadian Navy, Bill never lost his love of the ocean. In 1975 he moved his family from Taber, Alberta to the pristine surroundings of Vancouver Island. Bill owned and operated a successful painting company for 26 years, building many meaningful friendships in the community along the way. Bill always enjoyed a good laugh, a good cup of coffee and a good game of cribbage, but what Bill really loved was his Saviour, Jesus Christ. He was a member of Campbell River Baptist Church, singing in the choir for many of his years there. He is remembered by his loving and devoted wife of 48 years, Margaret; his children, grandchildren, and numerous relatives and friends. A memorial service will be held at 1pm on Friday, October 25, 2013 at Campbell River Baptist Church, 260 S. Dogwood St. Campbell River, BC V9W 6Y7. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts can be made to the ministries of Campbell River Baptist Church.

IN LOVING MEMORY
Devoted mother and Jessie Reynen, passed away with her family at her side at Evergreen Seniors Home in Campbell River on October 16, 2013. Jessie was predeceased by her loving husband Maurice, sisters Ruth and Marjorie, brothers Jim and John, and granddaughter Leah. She is survived by her sister Ethel (Edward), children Janet, Patricia, Maureen (Bill), Dan (Faye), David (Brenda), 11 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. In her ninety one years, Jessie had many friends who were special to her, but closest were her dear friends Sereine, Anne, and Regina. Jessie was born in Liverpool, England and moved to Winnipeg, MB before her first birthday. She moved to Powell River in the early 50â€™s and on to Point Holmes (Comox) in 1953. She and Maurice worked together building 12 houses and raising their five children until his death in 1971. Jessie carried on without Moe, raising their two young sons until they left the nest like their older sisters. At 50, Jessie learned to drive to get the boys to hockey, school, and for general taxi-mom service. She went on many trips to Reno and cruise ship vacations after the boys left home, but her favourite thing to do was spoil her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. The family wishes to thank Cindy and her devoted staff at the Evergreen Seniors Home, Jessieâ€™s home for the last three years, for their love and care. We are sorry we cannot name you all, but you know how much Jessie loved each of you. Thank you also to Dr. Hinds for his kindness as Jessie walked her final mile. Jessie Reynen will remain forever in our hearts

THE LUCKIEST SIGNS THIS WEEK:
PISCES, ARIES, AND TAURUS.
GEMINI, CANCER, AND LEO.
You’re entering a rather ambiguous period. You could try to fight the current, but you’re much better off to let yourself go with the flow in order to arrive at the right destination.
Don’t be afraid of change; it can only be to your advantage. You rediscover your joie de vivre by making some adjustments at home, at work, and in your love life. TAURUS

Halloween symbols revealed People familiar with Halloween know that certain animals, symbols and imagery are commonly used as decorations, with a goal of setting a mysterious and frightful scene. But some of these same items are far more innocuous when examined after Halloween has come and gone. The following are some of the more frequently used Halloween images and the truth behind these oft-misinterpreted decorations.

Bats Dracula can transform into a vampire bat and sneak inside of a home unseen, correct? Many people fear bats unnecessarily, and not just for their connection to horror folklore. Bats are small mammals, and the only mammals capable of sustained flight. Roughly 70 percent of bats are insectivores, and they can be quite helpful to have around. Bats begin to take flight at dusk and eat millions of insects, including pesky mosquitoes. But many bats eat fruit. A few species, like vampire bats, do feed on blood, but largely prefer blood from other animals and occasionally birds. While vampire bats can feed on the blood of humans, such instances are rare, and a person would have to be sleeping where the bats live. Wolves Wolves communicate through a soulful howl, and such howls are often heard in horror films, which has helped
paint a scary picture of wolves. But wolves often have more to fear from humans than vice versa. According to National Geographic, gray wolves that once populated large portions of North America, Europe and Asia were hunted to near extinction. Red wolves, which live in the southeastern United States, are endangered and actually became extinct in the wild in 1980.
Many wolves are highly gregarious animals that prefer to interact with other members of their pack and are not actually dangerous to humans, despite how they are portrayed in movies. Spiders Large webs waiting at the ready to ensnare prey is imagery common to horror movies. Many people fear spiders and other insects, and while all spiders have venom that they inject when biting their prey, few spiders have bites that are considered serious and potentially fatal to humans. The Black Widow, Brown Widow, Brown Recluse, Funnel Web, and Brazilian Wandering spiders are considered some of the
more deadly. In many instances, spiders are beneficial insects to have around the yard and even in the home because they can eat other unsavory pests. Ravens These large, black birds are often associated with bad omens, and some see them as harbingers of death. But such associations are simply fiction. Ravens are the largest birds in the crow family and feed on a wide array of foods, including carrion. These birds are considered the most intelligent birds, capable of learning and logic. Their keen intelligence and ability to learn behavior may be another reason why people are suspicious of them. Zombies Zombies do not exist in the real world, but they have frequently appeared in pop culture and are often more visible come Halloween. Zombies are supposedly resurrected dead that roam the earth and then turn others into zombies by biting them and passing infected saliva. In the real world, dead bodies cannot move and roam the earth, but air and gases in the body may be released and cause slight movement after death. Rigor mortis, or the stiffening of the body upon death, may also cause twitches or slight movement. This is natural and should not be mistaken for an impending zombie apocalypse.

What would Halloween be without trick-or-treating? For youngsters, so much of the fun of Halloween involves scouring the neighbourhood with friends in search of candy. While children may have their eyes on the sweet prize, parents may be concerned about their little ones’ safety.
To ensure everyone has a safe and fun Halloween, here are some safety tips to follow. * Go in groups. Children can be accompanied by their parents while older children should be encouraged to trick-or-treat in groups. Should an emergency occur, having a group of friends around enables someone to call for help or alert an adult. * Use a flashlight. When trick-or-treating at night, take steps to improve visibility. This includes using reflective tape on costumes and carrying a flashlight or glow sticks so that other pedestrians as well as drivers will be able to see children. * Walk on sidewalks. Wherever possible, trick-or-treaters should use sidewalks and crosswalks. * Avoid distractions. Trick-or-treaters should not be wearing earbuds or talking on a phone while trick-ortreating. They should be paying attention to their surroundings and using caution. * Do not enter homes. If an adult or even a youngster whom a child does not know offers entry to the home, the trick-or-treater should not enter. * Consume only factory-wrapped treats. Well-meaning people may hand out cupcakes or marshmallow cereal treats. The ingredients such people used and the safety of these treats cannot be confirmed, so it is best to stick with store-bought items instead. * Wear well-fitting shoes. Shoes that are uncomfortable or loose can cause children to fall and risk injury. * Adults should drive carefully. All drivers should slow down and anticipate children darting out into the roadways on Halloween. Drive slowly and pay attention to the roads.
PROCESS 12 secrets about popular horror movies If Halloween typically finds you curled up on the sofa with a bowl of popcorn in hand and a favorite scary movie all set to play, you may be interested to learn some behindthe-scenes horror movie trivia. Certain movies may have turned out entirely different if they had starred different actors, and special effects may not seem so scary if you know what’s actually behind them. Here are 12 interesting horror movie tidbits in honor of Halloween. 1. Few movies are shot in the order the scenes play out in the final cut. However, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was filmed in chronological order. 2. Johnny Depp is known for taking on some eccentric roles, including Edward Scissorhands. However, Tom Cruise was initially offered the title role in that film, turning it down because he wanted a happier ending. 3. Jack Nicholson evoked fear in many in his role in “The Shining.” But Robin Williams and Robert De Niro also were considered to play the part. Interestingly, Nicholson also was considered for the role of Hannibal Lecter in “Silence of the Lambs,” a role ultimately played by Anthony Hopkins.

7. Long before Andrew Lloyd Webber turned “The Phantom of the Opera” into one of the most successful musicals of all time, it was a movie called “The Phantom” based on Gaston Leroux’s book. The Phantom’s name is Erik, and he was a construction worker who helped build the Paris Opera House. 8. Almost 50 gallons of fake blood were used while shooting the movie “Scream.”
4. Tim Curry’s real hair was used in his role as Pennywise the Clown in “It.”
9. “The Blair Witch Project” took eight days to shoot and had a miniscule budget but went on to gross $140 million domestically.
5. Chocolate syrup has often been used as blood in horror movies. In the movie “Psycho,” chocolate sauce was used because it appeared more realistic in black-and-white filming during the famous shower scene.
10. “Carrie” was the first Stephen King book adapted to film.
6. The symbolic white mask that Michael Myers wears in “Halloween” is actually a mask of William Shatner. The production crew bought the cheapest mask they could find at a party store and spray-painted it white.
12. Father O’Malley, the priest who played Father Dyer in “The Exorcist,” was involved in the case that inspired the movie. He claims the plot is based on an exorcism of a young boy in Maryland and that the movie is 80 percent factual.

11. In the film “Stir of Echoes,” Kevin Bacon’s hypnosis sequences are followed by a musical note so viewers were not left in a hypnotized state.
