Dancing the night away for the Hospital Foundation To paraphrase singer/songwriter Don Henley, all they wanted to do was dance. Oh, yes, and fundraise too to support the Campbell River Hospital Foundation. It was another sold-out event on Saturday at the downtown Community Centre, as hundreds dressed “in their era” as they wined, dined on the fine food provided by Rose’s Country Kitchen, and then danced to the tunes of The Timebenders.

Scene & Heard

It was the third straight year the Victoria-based band was back for the fundraiser and for good reason. From the opening song to the last note, the floor was packed as dancers – many choosing the hippie theme – boogied to music from the 1950s to present day. More importantly, the eveninig raised thousands of dollars to help buy a new argon laser to be used by the hospital’s Ophthalmology Department.

Lead singers Aaron Scoones and Jennie Tuttle (left) of The Timebenders had the crowd dancing all night. Above, a cool table decoration.

After watching the coverage of Typhoon Haiyan and the devastation of islands in her home land, Helen Henley needed to do something immediate to help. A big fundraiser is taking place this Saturday at the Community Centre, but Henley thought someone should be out collecting donations before then. So the Oyster Bay resident contacted Super Store who allowed her to set up a donation table last weekend. She had hoped to raise $1,000, but, of course, the generosity of this giving community far exceeded her expectations. “People gave more than $3,700!” she said Tuesday. “My heartfelt thanks to everyone who gave a donation. My appreciation also goes to Super-

Centre. The Campbell River Filipino Canadian Cultural Association is hosting the event which opens at 5:30 p.m. Dinner is at 6:30 p.m., and the evening features a silent auction, 50/50 draw and Filipino cultural performances. Admission is by donation.

Watch for the Carihi Mirror bi-weekly feature starting Friday, November 22nd.

I remember at bedtime my Dad and I used to read Charlotte’s Web, The Wind in the Willows, Watership Down—anything with talking animals. That’s what really struck my interest in reading and writing.

It wasn’t until I was 12 and started reading Mark Twain that I became excited about journalism too. Since then I’ve been engulfed in the idea of sharing my own and the publics’ opinions and ideas. Within the community, I’m on the Rotary interact team, as well as the Youth Action Committee, a local student council. A year ago, I traveled to Ottawa to study journalism, broadcasting, and the media medium. At school, I started a newspaper club and now, writing for the Mirror, I seem to have found a sustainable outlet. Outside of writing I also participate on the Carihi improvisation teams, I play various roles intermittently through the acting department and I am a fan of independent media, vintage paraphernalia, and visual arts.

Even as a young child, Larissa Melville was always getting her hands dirty. All around her, there were things she didn’t understand and a natural curiosity had Larissa Melville been sparked by it. The need to be out exploring was a priority, and with paper and pencil in hand, she poured thoughts into words. Writing had been a way to share her visions with others, and as Larissa grew, she continued to cherish the skill and refine her works. Living and being raised in Campbell River had been a great experience, even if she hadn’t known it then. Her past year spent at Carihi Secondary was eye-opening, and now she plans to return what she learned to those who are curious about what’s happening at the high school. Where do the opinions of our generations’ teens lie? Read to find out.

Karra Macintosh grew up in Whitehorse for sixteen years, lived a year in the Okanagan, and moved to Quadra Island at the end of this summer. She is now a Karra Macintosh Carihi student that loves writing. Her interest in writing started in grade nine when Karra was influenced by her best friend and her great short stories. Most often Karra loves trying new recreational and outdoor activities, creative art, and is intrigued by new possibilities and anything out of the ordinary. When Karra graduates in 2014 she is thinking of moving to Vancouver to start college and continue her writing career.

She has grown up on Cortes Island but has spent a lot of time in England and is currently living in Campbell River to go to school at Carihi. She is new to high school – up until recently she has homeschooled, receiving tutoring from members of the Cortes community. In 2011 and 2012 she won the Cotes Literacy Young Writers competition.

Abram: Cuts a slap in the face to consultations www.CampbellRiverMirror.com www.CampbellRiverMirror.com

Continued from Pg. 1

Tidemark – forget about that. And Walcan, they have a huge workforce from Campbell River and they work late and they can’t afford to stay in a hotel here every night.” The cuts also increase the chance of BC Ambulance service having to call out the ferry after hours during an emergency – a measure Abram said costs the province $2,000-$3,000 each time. Abram expects it will also have an impact on Quadra Islanders who go over to Campbell River for the evening for sports and arts programs. He said it will also imp ac t commercia l trucks which tend to take the last ferry from Campbell River over to Quadra, load up at night and then take the first ferry back in the morning. The B.C. government introduced the service cuts in a bid to cut costs. The first round of cutbacks – to the minor and northern routes – is expected to save BC Ferries $14 million. Further changes will be coming to the major routes (Tsaw wassen-Swar tz Bay, Departure BayHorseshoe Bay and Duke Point-Tsawwassen) by April 2016 for a further $4.9 million in savings. Abram, though, said the cuts are a “slap in the face” and undermine the upcoming public consultations sessions being held across the province. “Today coastal com-

munities, totally dependent on current levels of ferry service, are being cut off at the knees in a unilateral ministerial announcement before the consultation process even begins,” Abram said. “What a slap in the face to hard-working coastal residents who are major contributors to the provincial economy. Ferries are our marine highways and they allow coastal B.C. to contribute to the economic development of the province.” It’s also a slap to the group of regional district chairs under the impression the government wanted to work together to find a solution to the ferry problem, Abram said. Following a resolution at September’s Union of BC Municipalities convention demanding the government treat ferries as part of the provincial highway system, Premier Christy Clark appointed Jordan Sturdy, Parliamentary Secretary to Minister Stone, to work with the group, of chairs, which includes Abram. A meeting with Sturdy and the chairs was scheduled for Nov. 22 and then cancelled last Friday, just three days before the government announced the impending cuts and other cost-saving measures. Those include eliminating free sailings for seniors (65 and older) travelling Monday and Thursday. As of April 2014, the senior discount will be

THEY SAID IT: “This is not a solution in any way, shape or form. It’s a complete joke.”

50 per cent off the regular fare, to save approximately $6 million per year. Stone acknowledged that choosing to cut service was a difficult decision, but necessary. “We are making tough decisions to ensure that our coastal ferry service is sustainable for future generations,” Stone said in a release. “These changes protect basic service levels and are in keeping with the fiscal realities facing provincial taxpayers.” Abram questioned that. “This is not a solution in any way, shape or form. It’s a complete joke,” Abram said. “This is window dressing and patches and will not provide anything of a sustainable future for BC Ferries. “I think they’re trying to run the service into the ground.” BC Ferry critic Claire Trevena agreed.

“The Liberal government has stalled for years on fixing the problems at B.C. Ferries while the corporation’s debt rose, and ridership fell,” said the North Island MLA. “Now, their only idea seems to be trying to raise funds through onboard slot machines and an uncaring plan to cut discounts for seniors, making it harder for families to keep in touch. “Seniors on fixed incomes will be disproportionately affected by these changes.” The community input sessions into the ferry cuts begin this week. A session is scheduled for Quadra Island on Monday, Dec. 9, 6-9 p.m. at the Quadra Community Centre. More information on the sessions can be found at www.coastalferriesengagement.ca Abram encourages everyone to attend. “We don’t have any room for apathy with this one, it’ll only get worse,” said Abram who added he’s confident the public won’t let the issue slip away. “People are organizing as we speak, they won’t put up with this draconian slashing of service, charging seniors and the stupidity of putting slot machines on (the vessels).”

Casino The B.C. government is considering adding a gaming component to BC Ferries starting with a pilot project to install a casino on the Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen run. If successful, casinos may be added to all three of the major Lower Mainland-Vancouver Island runs.

The government said the gaming revenue could be reinvested into the ferry system to support general fares. Other changes BC Ferries is looking at other measures to save money including: n Using more standard, ‘no frills’ vessels on smaller routes.

n Converting to Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) propelled vessels. n Considering alternate technologies such as cable ferries. n Expanding its reservation system to include discounts on booking reservations for less busy sailing times and opening up reservations to the smaller routes.

to fund future needs and contingencies because sufficient contributions are not being made to reserves. Closing both centres is projected to save $137,227 in 2014 which includes two seasonal contractors ($72,400), $70,000 for projects, materials, supplies, advertising, community sponsorship and promotions as well as $2,000 for travel. In place of the centre, workshops may be offered off site however, facility rentals would have to be considered and paid for. Leigh said it would be nearly impossible to replace what the centres offered. “I fully support the continuation of the waste reduction centres; the three educators who serve our solid waste function have done such an excellent job over the last eight years at a very reasonable cost,” Leigh said. “Their role in raising public awareness about the importance of the 3 R’s, their involve-

as both being gone,” Storry said. “The budget hasn’t passed yet though, so someone could still bring forward a motion to save it.” Leigh said her hope is that the solid waste service can come up with the money in light of a Saturday referendum in the Comox Valley to turn down waste and organic pick-up in its rural electoral areas. “The Saturday referendum was soundly defeated by a majority of 73 per cent,” Leigh said. “In my estimation, we may now have room in our budgets to discuss the importance of retaining our waste reduction centres and programs.” The budget was brought forward with the two compost centres eliminated as a cost saving measure. According to a budget presentation, as it stands now, solid waste management operations in 2014 won’t be covered by projected revenues and reserve funds are too low

Campbell River’s Compost Education Centre is expected to be closed indefinitely – a fate that was largely decided by elected officials from the Comox Valley. The centre is a casualty of budget cuts the Comox Strathcona Solid Waste Management Service is considering. A motion was made by Brenda Leigh, director for Area D (Oyster BayButtle Lake), at the Nov. 7 solid waste board meeting to save the centre but it was defeated by a vote of 14-9. Leigh got support from most Strathcona Regional District directors and Campbell River city council aside from Craig Anderson (Gold River), Gerald Whalley (Area A), Ted Lewis (Zeballos), an alternate for John MacDonald (Sayward), and Mayor Walter Jakeway. The Comox Valley directors and city councillors who sit on the board all voted against the motion, with the exception of Jim Gillis (Lazo North) who voted in favour of keeping the centre opened. Coun. Mary Storry said the future is murky for the facility which helped educate families on the importance of composting. “The budget was presented with both the C omox Valle y and Campbell River centres gone and our motion to retain the one in Campbell River was defeated so it stays on the books

per year over the past 10 years. n An average of 300 composters were sold at the centres over 10 years. n Approximately 135 less classroom sessions

Our View

Compost education centre cut shortsighted In this day and age of tight funding, the need to cut excessive costs is understandable. But there is an old saying that talks about cutting off your nose to spite your face. And there’s a lot of that in all levels of government. We say: Facility The Comox-Strathcona Waste played large part Management (CSWM) board has indulged in a little face-spiting. In the in educating the board’s quest to squeeze a few dollars, community they’ve decided to stop funding the Campbell River and the Comox Valley’s compost education centres (see page 7) . Actually, to be more specific: the Comox Valley board members

(except one) voted to kill the compost education centres. For some reason, Campbell River area members found the centres worth saving and attempted to do so with a motion to keep the Campbell River centre on Dogwood Street. This has to be one of those situations where nitpicking over a relatively small amount of money sacrifices something that’s of greater value than it’s budget line amount. The Compost Education Centre on Dogwood Street has been an effective public education resource that has taught thousands of children over the years about the value and techniques of composting. Oh, and the parents that came along probably absorbed some of

that knowledge too. These centres also served as focal points for the community. Elaine Jansen – the “Compost Diva” – is a far more well-known – and loved – figure in the community than any CSWM board member. Given that one of the CSWM’s mandates is to divert garbage from the landfill – thereby precluding the need to spend millions on building and operating them – cutting the compost education centres to save a few thousand dollars seems shortsighted. All is not lost yet, there is still an opportunity for the centre to come back during final budget discussions and hopefully Comox Valley politicians will be able to see beyond the end of their noses and allow us to keep our centre at least.

Voting rules are garbage

I’m so not impressed with the local government voting that happened on the weekend in Black Creek. I turned up at the voting hall on my way home from work to vote on an issue which relates to us and has a direct effect on us, to be told I am not entitled to vote. The vote is in regards to garbage and recycling collection from our house by the local council, for which we will be charged an extra $150 at least per year on our property tax. I am a permanent resident for more than two years in good standing. I am a taxpayer. I pay all my bills. I own my house. I have owned my own business and paid all my taxes for the company. I have a job as security manager at an airport making sure that our Canadian skies are safe and that it’s safe for Canadians to fly. But, because I am not a Canadian Citizen I am not allowed to vote on garbage and recycling collection from the house I own and have paid all my taxes for. The system is wrong to exclude me for being able to vote on something which effects my family and I.

Ferry fares and The Worst Mayor in the World

Alistair Taylor

Out On A Limb @AlstrT

editor@campbellrivermirror.com

So, I see that the B.C. government is cancelling the free ferry rides for seniors. I have to say that I was surprised when I first heard that seniors got a free passage on the BC Ferries system. It applies only to week-day travel and not on the busy weekend schedules. But free? Well, not any more. It’s been cut to 50 per cent and, you know, as much as I’m all for assisting seniors any way we can, a free ride on the ferry seemed a bit generous. If seniors are in dire straights (pardon the pun), then other assistance programs can help them out but it’s a fallacy to think that all seniors are living hand-to-mouth. Many (most?) current seniors have benefitted from being probably the wealthiest generation to have ever lived

on the planet, replete with the best salaries and retirement benefit packages humans have ever earned. Even as a member of the boomer generation, myself, albeit the tail end of it, I probably won’t retire as well as the first wave of baby boomers have. So, 50 per cent off your ferry fare is probably, well, fair. As for putting slot machines on the ferries, now we can put the reverse on our teenagers. Many a dad spent his Georgia Strait crossing by hanging around the onboard arcade on the ferries while his kids spent their money on the video games. Now with a casino, will the kids be forced to hang around outside the casino doors while mom and dad get robbed

twice by BC Ferries – once getting on board and then twice being milked by onboard gambling? That’s always government’s panacea isn’t it? Put in slot machines so we can vacuum more money out of taxpayers. But its voluntary, of course. Not exactly what I’d call leadership. Why don’t we put slot machines in hospitals, that would pay for them won’t it? Hey, instead of highway tolls, we could give one driver in five million the chance to strike it rich by having slot machines instead of toll booths. n Meanwhile, can you stand any more about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford? A common cliche in journalism is to use the term embattled as in “embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford” except in

this case, I think it should be embattled Toronto voters having to put up with what has to be the Worst Mayor In The World. How utterly delusional Ford must be to cling to the idea that he can continue to be mayor after admitting to using drugs, consorting with crack dealers and being so hammered he has no idea what he’s saying. He obviously thinks all the controversy will blow over but it’s time this guy was given the big hook, except there’s no mechanism to impeach him. What an absolute embarrassment. Torontonians can get full of themselves sometimes but even they don’t deserve that nitwit. Nobody does.

Cemetery measures too drastic I wish to thank Paul Rudan and the Webb family for their heartfelt letter regarding the city’s plan to enforce the bylaw prohibiting objects other than fresh flowers at the cemetery. It deeply saddens me that council is going to such drastic measures. I have three family members at the Elk Falls cemetery, and tending their graves is all that family members have left. Council is essen-

tially taking away every opportunity that we have to care for our loved ones. It is impossible to leave fresh flowers as the deer devour them the moment we leave. I do understand that some of the adornments are becoming somewhat excessive; however I would like to believe that the council could be compassionate enough to come to a compromise. Perhaps council could take the money for the

“alternate garden” and pay a gardening contractor that would use a push mower that requires a little more time and care, instead of a contractor that whips through on his stand up ride on mower. It would also be desirable to keep the gardening rocks around the headstones if they were kept in an appropriate and specific framework; which minimal adornments could be kept

Graphic Designer Designer Graphic

within this framework. The idea of a scattered garden, water feature etc is lovely; however we still want to be able to tend to the graves of our own loved ones. It is quite devastating to feel that being stripped away. The main purpose of the cemetery is for a family to have a specific place at which to honour their departed loved ones. Karen Sacht Campbell River

Let’s spend our hospital money wisely Re: MLA, doctors: Include more hospital beds now; I absolutely agree with this article. I think the planners of the new hospital are very short sighted if they think their plan will meet the needs of Campbell River in the future when

we can’t meet the needs now. We know our requirements are going to increase, especially with our aging population. In addition, there is a critical need for at least four critical care/emergency mental health beds.

A recent coroner’s report asked for two dedicated youth mental health beds yet there are none in the plan. We need to speak out and demand that our community’s future needs are taken into consideration and not just have lip service paid.

Regional City to take on $15 million debt district looks at budget Kristen Douglas

Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Strathcona Regional District directors got their first look Wednesday at the budget numbers for 2014. Directors were presented with the base budget at last week’s We d n e s d ay b o a r d meeting, which lays out the ongoing work plan. The board is already facing a two per cent increase related to labour requirements. Dawn Christenson, financial services manager for the regional district, said while the numbers in the base budget are preliminary, the labour increase is certain. “We do know our labour costs,” Christenson told the board during its meeting Wednesday afternoon. “We do know we have a two per cent increase for labour costs.” In 2013, costs for general administration were $1.87 million while in 2014, they’re projected to be $1.91 million, a difference of $40.32 or an increase of 2.2 per cent. “At this point we’re really just looking at an inflationary increase,” Christenson said. As part of the base budget, Russ Hotsenpiller, chief administrative officer of the regional district, said the regional district

needs to work on a succession plan. “We’re on the verge of losing some real experience in the organization and bridging that gap will certainly be a real challenge,” Hotsenpiller said. The full budget is expected to be publicly released in a draft form on January 17 in time for budget workshops on January 30 and 31. A second draft will go to the board on February 12, with the expectation that the final budget will be presented to the board at its Feb. 27 meeting. Final adoption of the budget is expected on either March 12 or March 27. The budget has to go to the province before the end of March. Director Andy Adams suggested that for 2015 the financial plan be done earlier. “We’re seeing adoption not until a few weeks before the deadline which doesn’t leave much room for changes,” Adams said. Christenson agreed the plan could be done sooner if directors were able to nail down the direction they want to go before Christmas.

City staff are looking to council for permission to borrow $15 million for water and sewer projects sooner rather than later to avoid high interest charges. Myriah Foort, the city’s financial accounting supervisor, said if the city applies to the Municipal Finance Authority for a longterm loan as opposed to temporary borrowing, more interest will accumulate. The timing could also be off, particularly because the finance authority only issues funds twice per year, in the spring and in the fall, and it takes two months to process an application, which also requires approval from the regional district. “In an effort to save money (interest charges), staff are recommending that council adopt these temporary loan authorization bylaws which would permit the city to draw needed funding any time of the year,” Foort said in a report to council. “If council does not adopt these two bylaws, the city would need to lock into long-term debt two times per year ahead of when the funds are required. This could result in borrowing in excess of what is required if projects

come in under budget, or possibly not borrowing enough if projects progress more quickly than expected.” Council approved borrowing $10.2 million for water projects and another $4.8 million for sewer infrastructure upgrades at a council meeting Oct. 8. Council secured the public’s permission to proceed with the borrowing through the alternative approval process which required voters to sign an opposition form if they weren’t

in agreement. One of the key projects that will benefit from the borrowing is the new drinking water system, which will replace the existing one the city shares with BC Hydro. That system will be removed when BC Hydro eliminates the three penstocks currently in place as part of its John Hart Generating Station improvement project. “The city is expected to utilize approximately

$3 million of debt funding for this project in 2014 with our 25 per cent share of the costs (Hydro is funding the remaining 75 per cent),” Foort said. “By having authority to borrow short-term on projects like these the city can ensure steady cash flows throughout the construction period.” Foort said temporary borrowing can only be used for up to five years, but as projects are completed city staff will request to transfer

the loans to long-term borrowing when the finance authority issues its spring and fall funding. Council was expected to make a decision on the borrowing at Tuesday evening’s council meeting after the Mirror went to press. The funding is expected to go towards water main improvements, a water booster pump station, a chlorine facility upgrade and an expansion to the Beaver Lodge reservoir.

also the price of two Winnebagos.There sits our retirement!”

Just after midnight on June 22, fire broke out near the entrance

of White Hat Cleaners, located at 601-11th Ave. The blaze gutted the building, torched all the cleaning equipment, and also damaged two neighbouring businesses. St. Jean’s Cannery and Smokehouse sustained minor damage and reopened quickly following the fire, but Stonehouse Teas, located on the other side of White Hat, had serious fire, smoke and water damage, and it’s been closed since then. However, both White Hat and Stonehouse are expecting to reopen by Saturday, Dec. 7. “We’re coming back and soon!” says Stone-

have enough beds to serve the growing region and advancing relations with First Nations communities through a graduated approach that includes education on First Nations issues, protocols and culture. Rounding out the top priorities is better coordination between the Strathcona Regional District, provincial and federal levels of government with respect to approval processes. The regional district recently expressed a desire for more symmetry after the province gave approval to the Klahoose for use of Crown land on Cortes to build a marina only to have the regional district turn down a re-zoning request for the same property weeks later, leaving the Klahoose in limbo. The final strategic priorities – develop a communications plan and homelessness advocacy – were put at the bottom of the list.

Directors had also ranked developing a sustainability plan as important during strategic planning sessions but some changed their mind during last Wednesday’s board meeting.

Director Jim Abram (Quadra Island) wanted it removed from the list and Director Brenda Leigh (Area D) said she didn’t think there was a need for a specific sustainability plan but rather

sustainability would automatically factor into land use decisions made by the board. Director Noba Anderson (Cortes Island) disagreed. “We’re missing out

Moving in day has never been so fun for Rob and Brenda Harris. The owners of the White Hat Drycleaners and Commercial Laundry were smiling earto-ear last Wednesday when equipment started rolling in to replace the machines lost in a June fire. “Look at that beautiful orange colour!” says Brenda as she looks over the two new 40-pound dry cleaning machines. Actually, says Rob, his wife wasn’t sure about orange, but the dry cleaners are state-of-the-

house Teas owner Tanya Hofer. “December is also our busiest month.” The reopening at White Hat will also be the launch day for the Salvation Army’s winter coats program. For several years now, White Hat has been accepting donations of good used winter coats and they dry clean them for free. The coats are then distributed to children and families who need them. “It’s a good way to break in the machines, cleaning coats for kids,” says Brenda. More details are to come, but the Harris’s plan to have a grand reopening with a drop-off

day for coats and tours of their operation. And the operation itself will be muchimproved as a result of new equipment, says Rob. The new dry cleaners are much more environmentally-friendly, there are new and bigger washers and dryers, and 19 presses – all coming in at about $500,000, most of which was covered by insurance. The one other thing Rob is really anxious about is his new office. “I never had an office before,” he muses. “I always wanted one with a bottle of scotch in the desk drawer.I don’t even drink scotch!”

on funding opportunities at a very specific level,” Anderson said. “I believe we had ample time to spend on this at our sessions. If people are against this they should have said something

then.” The majority of directors seemed to agree and the sustainability plan stayed on the list with directors Abram, Leigh and Gerald Whalley (Area A) opposed.

Strathcona Regional District lays out its priorities Kristen Douglas Campbell RiveR miRRoR

Better Internet and cell phone coverage, ensuring the new hospital meets service and capacity standards, and improving relations with First Nations are top priorities for the Strathcona Regional District. Following two lengthy Strategic Planning sessions, directors voters at last week’s regional district board meeting on the most pressing issues facing the organization. Top of the list is promoting the extension of cell phone service in the more rural areas of the regional district as well as developing a sub-regional tourism strategy to promote tourism within the region. A regional tourism service feasibility study will gather information on how best to move forward with the initiative. Also top of mind is ensuring the new Campbell River hospital will

The Tidemark Lounge series returns Thursday with two more Canadian singer songwriters. Derek Lorentz is continuously coming up with new songs he’s written as well as learning various covers. He’s currently working on his latest addition of recordings and plans to keep them coming. Lorentz has played with numerous musicians, including professional drummer Brian Higgins, and has played with two different bands, performing at various locations on Vancouver island. He’s enjoyed traveling with fellow musicians Nigel Nikolaisen (Gibby Nik) and Gerrit Dooris to remote fishing lodges like Moutcha

sponsored by

Bay Resort and Westview Marina to perform. He has also played at five weddings for first dances and ceremonies. Lorentz has joined up with Jacquelyn Block (from Time Well Wasted) du r i n g c om mu n it y events like Canada Day at Spirit Square and local farmers markets. Lorentz can be found playing regularly at Johnny’s Bar and Lounge, in addition to numerous other restaurants and sports bars. Meanwhile, Richelle Andre grew up in rural Saskatchewan and had a strong affinity and love for music by the age of five. While her formal training was limited she continued to hone her skills on piano at grandmother’s farmhouse and

Seven children needed – no experience necessary! The casting call went out in September for Shoreline Musical Theatre’s production of The Sound of Music, and seven of the roles to be filled were those of Captain Von Trapp’s children. “We were looking for children who not only could sing, but were interested and wanted to entertain,” said co-director Ruth Nichol. “They not only needed to be creative and desire to be engaged,” added artistic director and choreographer Heather Gordon Murphy, “but they also had to have the ability to be still.”  “The children are very important to the story,” says Nichol, “they bring their father back to his great love of music, and they help instigate the friendship of Maria and the Captain (played by Mary Jo Wood and Ryan Mennie).” “They create the beauty of innocence and wonder,” said Gordon Murphy. There were a fair number of children audition-

ing, and, after callbacks, seven were selected, with a variety of backgrounds - from the experienced to brand new. Plessa Walden plays Liesl, the oldest of the Von Trapp children. She has had previous experience on stage, and enjoys not only performing, but the challenge of finding

her character. “Liesl is naïve,” she explains.  “When you look at her relationship with Rolf, she thinks she knows, but she doesn’t. She wants to be more mature than she is.” There are two sons in the Von Trapp family – Jeffrey Lindenbach plays Kurt and Liam Broad-

hurst plays Friedrich. For both boys, it is their first time on stage.  Broadhurst’s sister was auditioning, and so he decided to give it a try as well.  “I’m enjoying all of it,” he said. “Friedrich is the oldest boy, so he probably feels like he needs to lead Kurt in the right

way.” Lindenbach is enjoying the singing, and thinks performing in front of an audience will be the challenge.  “Kurt is shy, and doesn’t make himself noticed. He’s way different from me,” he said. Rose Gibson has the part of Gretl, the young-

est member of the family, and this is also her first time on stage. She is enjoying the acting and singing, but says it is challenging “remembering every single thing you have to do.”  He r ol d e r s iste r, Olivia, has the part of Marta. Olivia has dance experience, and is really enjoying portraying a character, and  “making all the expressions, like when our dad says he’s going to marry Frau Schraeder, I have a look like what?”  She explained that it can be tricky remembering all the blocking, but if it isn’t right, it’s done again, and then it gets easier to remember. Abigail Broadhurst plays the part of Brigitta.  She has training in musical theatre and voice, and decided to audition after seeing the ad in the paper.  She is enjoying performing, and notes that she has one tricky scene where everything gets a bit tense. She said that her character is a “bit nosy – she likes to figure stuff

out before other people.” Louisa, the mischief maker, is played by Atraia Colongioli.  She has had a variety of performing experiences in dance, theatre and choir.  She is loving being part of the production, and is happy to be part of such a dedicated group.  “My challenge was the audition,” she said, “I was really nervous and didn’t think I’d get the part, but I did!”  The children are coming together as a family in a lovely, entertaining way.  “My favourite scene is when the children start singing The Sound of Music,” says Nichol, “and their father can hardly believe his ears…then he joins in. The greatness of the music and the profound, gentle emotion is wonderful.”   The Sound of Music runs from Thursday, Nov. 28 to Saturday, Nov. 30, including a matinee on the Saturday. Tickets are $27, and available at the Tidemark Box Office, or on-line at tidemarktheatre.com.

Greta Susan Nelson

December 15, 1920November 11, 2013

The family of Greta Susan Nelson(nee Mawhinny) would like to announce her passing from this life into another one much better, because she is now with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, whom she has been anxiously waiting to finally see. Greta left us on November 11, Remembrance Day, which will give us another reason to honor this special day. She would have been 93 years old on December 15 and still young and beautiful as always. She was a tough woman; hardworking and very serious about most things in life, but she loved her family and her church family, and most of all the Lord. Anything to do with spiritual things was her passion and joy. Greta was the last to pass away out of 8 children, even though she was the 2nd eldest. She was a very loving and caring wife and mother of 3 daughters; Maureen Aiello (Osoyoos, BC), Fran Scott (Terrace, BC), and Lillian Beaumont (Campbell River, BC). Great was also grandmother of 9, great-grandmother of 20, and great-great-grandmother of 6. Our 5 generations just ended. If I told you in detail who she was and who she became, I would need the entire section of this paper; anyone who knew her would agree. I can’t imagine life without her and can only believe the pain and loneliness will get less with each passing day, because I’m told it will. She will be terribly missed and never forgotten. We love you, Grams. Enjoy your time in the presence and arms of Jesus. I know you’re no longer suffering and you are now continually filled with joy and peace. Until we see you again, and we will. You can be sure of that.

more energy-efficient and more convenient for homeowners. You no longer have to worry about power outages, since the fireplace doesn’t run on electricity, and there is no more waiting for your fireplace to heat up, since natural gas is available at the push of a button. There

She also plans to give the The space is currently only usable in the warmer months, so she’s hoping to be able to use it yearround if she wins the contest. Among the ideas Gallop has for the yard is a hot tub with an arbor above it. “That will give them a little bit of coverage and privacy,” she says, adding that the hot tub will be heated by natural gas. Gallop also plans to include an outdoor kitchen with natural gas barbecue and a natural gas firepit. A natural gas hot tub is a great idea for homeowners, with its consistent, fast heat and automatic safety shut-off controls for added peace of mind. Swimming pools can also be heated by natural gas. FortisBC notes that a natural gas barbecue can be extremely convenient for homeowners looking for fuel on demand, Sarah Gallop rendering as you’ll never have to deal Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. has envisioned an outdoor space with a natural gas hot tub, natural gas barbecue and with running out of propane natural gas firepit for Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo. or charcoal.

Find it at www. fortisbc.com/energycalculator. FortisBC natural gas customers are also continuing to benefit from some of the lowest prices in a decade, at under $4 per gigajoule.

Soccer jamboree this Sunday Sunday is Grey Cup day in Canada, but for a group of local boys, it’s all about soccer. That’s when the Campbell River Youth Soccer Association hosts the U12 Junior Development Jamboree. Seven Upper Island teams are expected to take part in the jamboree which gives the kids an opportunity to play multiple teams in a fun and non-competitive environment. Games run from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Pinecrest Park. There will also be a bake sale fundraiser for the victims of the Haiyan Typhoon in the Phillipines.

Midget Tyees nip Bulldogs

Paul Rudan/The MiRRoR

Tyees’ forward Jake McKenzie scores on the breakaway to give the Tyees a 1-0 lead over the Alberni Bulldogs.

It’s rematch Sunday in Port Alberni. Campbell River’s No. 1 Auto Body midget Tyees hockey club will try to make it two in a row against the Bulldogs following last Sunday’s 2-1 win in Campbell River. The Tyees opened the scoring at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena. With 5:07 remaining in the first period, Jake McKenzie grabbed

a clearing past, out-skated the defence and fired a wrist shot past the Alberni goalie. Both teams also had several scoring chances in the first, but failed to capitalize. The Bulldogs squared things up in the second period when a point shot beat Tyees’ goalie Riley Mathieson. But Mathieson was strong between the pipes and did not allow

another goal. Late in the third period, Campbell River scored the winning goal when Keaton Dion passed from behind the Bulldogs net and hit an uncovered Gage Crawford who made no mistake on the shot. The Tyees play the Bulldogs this Sunday in Port Alberni.

Hitman joins Storm for two games A Calgary Hitmen draftee will play for the Campbell River Storm this weekend. Fifteen-year-old Beck Malenstyn of Penticton will be dressing for the Junior B hockey club this weekend for the games against Nanaimo and Comox. Malenstyn was the 18th overall selection to the Calgary Hitmen in last year’s Major Junior draft and the Storm received special permission from the club to play for these two games. “Beck was one of 40 players chosen from all over Canada for his age group to participate in the All State Canadian Game held by the NHLPA and has gone to several agency camps and skated with the likes of Nathan MacKinnon, Seth Jones and other NHL draftees,” said Strom head coach Lee Stone.

Calgary Hitman draft pick Beck Malenstyn will play for the Storm this week.

“Beck was also the runner up for the B.C. Bantam Player of the Year, captaining OHA and leading the team with 62 goals and 119 points in 57 games.”

Malenstyn will be arriving in town Thursday and will travel with the Storm to Nanaimo to take on the division-leading Buccaneers. Then on Friday, the Storm are back home at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena to take on the Comox Glacier Kings at 7:30 p.m. Last Friday, at home, the Storm thumped basement-dwellers, Oceanside Generals, 6-1. On Saturday, Campbell River followed up with a 4-0 victory in Courtenay over the Glacier Kings. Jack Surgenor earned the shutout, turning away all 28 shots on net. The Storm is presently third in the North Island Division, just one point back of the Glacier Kings. However, Campbell River has two games in hand.

Late goals spur Young Masters to victory

Killer Whales put on a show in Victoria Killer Whale Kasey Lathangue swims the 400 metre individual medley at Commonwealth Pool in Victoria.

The Campbell River Killer Whales had some outstanding swim results at the Island Pacific Cup in Victoria on Nov. 8-10. More than 35 Killer Whales raced in Commonwealth Pool and the results were outstanding with three new club records and a trio of swimmers qualified for

higher level championship meets. One of the superstars of the weekend was Cianna Dunn, who broke two club records in the 200 butterfly and 400 individual medley (IM) in the 12 and under girl’s category. Both swims were best times. Mackenzie Padington also broke the club

record in the 400 IM in the 13 and 14 age group, breaking her own record from last season, which is great for so very early in the season. Kas e y L at hang u e, Deigo Alvarez de L o r e n z a n a , Tr a v i s Lathangue and Lilan Forsyth all had outstanding meets as well with several best times.

Kasey Lathangue’s 400 free on Saturday had three best times in one event which is always the making of a great race. Alvarez de Lorenzana raced four finals plus a relay Saturday night getting best times in all his races. Emilie Diemer swam at her first Pacific Cup which can be intimidat-

ing for any level of swimmer. She had a big smile on her face through the whole weekend and raced her heart out in her individual races and relays. Julia Alguire and Sydney Boyle swam to their second AAA time standard in 100 free and 400 free respectively, qualifying them for Swim BC’s

AAA Championships at the end of January. Aleah Jordan, swimming in a very tough age group, swam fast enough to get her first AA time and came so close in many of her other races to getting another. The Killer Whales host the Winter Classicat Strathcona Gardens on Dec. 1.

Mainstream Canada Young Masters extended its unbeaten run in Division Four of the Vancouver Island Soccer League. It was anything but the comfortable victory over the last place Saanich Fusion. Despite dominating possession, Campbell River failed to capitalize on numerous goal scoring opportunities and found themselves scoreless after 80 minutes of play. Fortunately, the deadlock was broken when Shane Dumanoir just beat the excellent Saanich keeper to a loose ball to get the vital opening goal. Minutes later it was 2-0 when Shane Berry converted a penalty kick. The third goal was scored by Jason Fawkes after an excellent low cross from Kevin Shelswell. The team will now take a two-week break before embarking on away games to Fernwood and Juan De Fuca before the Christmas vacation.
