It is hoped it will never been needed but the Sooke Fire Department will soon have a mobile command post/ communications unit. The Langford Fire Department is gifting a used 1981 GMC vehicle to Sooke. While the vehicle is free, there are costs associated with running and maintaining it. A new line item in the budget would need to be created of approximately $1,500 per year. The costs would have to come from the Sooke Emergency Program. The report to council states the 32-yearold vehicle has been well maintained and serviced regularly, although there would be no communication equipment in the truck. The report to council also states that the Sooke Emergency Program amateur radio group already has the majority of the equipment needed. The group has volunteered their services to outfit the command unit. Currently the fire department utilizes a folding tent because the old rescue truck is really awkward to use. “The tent is great

in the summer but it sucks in the winter,” said Sorensen. Sooke Fire Chief Steve Sorensen said if the district didn’t want the vehicle it could be offered to the RCMP to use as a command post. RCMP Staff Sergeant Steve Wright stated the vehicle would provide privacy for victims in situations such as accidents and was strongly in favour of the acquisition. Questions arose from council as to need for such a vehicle and the associated costs. Discussion also ensued on the fire department fleet and whether this vehicle would add another vehicle which in time would have to be replaced in their 20-year vehicle replace-

ment plan. Councillor Herb Haldane said he didn’t support the acquisition and stated the RCMP could take it on. Other councillors were concerned about the ongoing cost. Mayor Wendal Milne said he was willing to support the acquisition providing it replaced the old rescue truck. The fire department will continue to use the Sunriver muster station for the volunteer fire fighters for the next year and then the use will be reviewed. The fire department is utilizing the existing Fire Safety House to house their turnout gear. Fire Chief Sorensen said the addition of the muster station has raised morale among the volunteer fire fighters and has helped somewhat with recruitment and retention of volunteers. There are no financial impacts in maintaining the muster station, although there was mention that this could be the first step to a permanent fire hall in Sunriver.

Christmas Bureau begins its work Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

It’s baa-aack. Every year the Christmas Bureau in Sooke sets up and begins to collect donations for those who could use a hand at Christmas time. This year, kicking off this Friday, the Christmas giving begins again in Sooke. Christmas support is no longer something for the unemployed. It’s crawling reach impacts the relatively new category of the working poor. “Apparently, the food bank is up 16 per cent in their need,” said Pat Phillips, the public relations contact for the Christmas Bureau, in speaking about the growing number of the working poor. “They are now servicing 450 household a month.” These numbers were confirmed by Ingrid Johnson, the president of the Sooke Food Bank. Earlier this year in May, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) and A Living Wage for Families announced the 2013 calculations for living wages. In the Greater Victoria area, which includes Sooke, the minimum livable wage works out to be $18.73, assuming a Cleaver-like family of four with two working adults. The steady degradation of wages, in part, accounts for the regular annual increase in recipients. The Christmas Bureau is a seasonal extension of Sooke’s Food Bank, and is graciously supported by the District of Sooke, the Fire Rescue Service, volunteers, and the community at large. Giving made easy In collaboration with the Sooke Fire Rescue Services, the Christ-

Four key players of this year’s Christmas Bureau came together on a rainy afternoon. From left to right: Deb Schenk (Harbourside Lions), Steve Sorensen (Fire Chief), Maggie Vause (Harbourside Lions), and Mayor Wendal Milne. mas Bureau campaign kicks off at 1 p.m. on Friday, November 22, in front of both Village Food Market and Western Foods. The campaign will run full force on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until the culminating event, the Annual Santa Run on Saturday, December 14. Food items desperately needed include carrots, apples and onions by the bag, canned fruit, canned cranberry sauce, stuffing mix and canned tomato sauce. An $8,000 grant from the District of Sooke will go towards purchasing Christmas turkeys. All other donations, including cash, will also be gratefully received. This year, the Bureau is aspiring to match last year’s total of $25,000. The Sooke Harbourside Lions will continue to collect news toys in colourful Christmas boxes placed throughout the business community in Sooke, and the Sooke Lioness will be supporting all efforts of the campaign

as well. The Annual Santa Run is when a fullydecorated fire truck drives around in Sooke starting at 5 p.m., collecting donations. Paper bags are distributed in the Sooke News Mirror before this run, enabling easy collection of non-perishables. The fire truck does sound its siren, alerting residents to its arrival. If you think you may have missed it, Fire Chief Steve Sorensen said you can call the

station (non-emergency number 250-6425422). They can let you know where the truck is at, and if you have indeed missed it, they can arrange to have your donations picked up. Signing up to receive Applications can be picked up in Sooke at three locations: The Sooke Family Resource Society (locally referred to as CASA, (open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), the Sooke Food Bank (open

on the first, second and third Thursdays of each month from 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. ), and the Sooke Crisis Centre (open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.). Completed forms must be in by December 6 in order to receive a Christmas hamper. Hampers will be available for pickup at the Sooke Community Hall on December 21, starting at 9:30 a.m. This year, C-FAX’s Santa’s Anonymous has extended their assistance to our area as they have recognized the plight of the Sooke Christmas Bureau. Not only will Santa’s Anonymous be supplying food hampers but toys as well, to approximately 200 families with children, from East Sooke to Port Renfrew. The remaining single or childless families will receive hampers from the Sooke Christmas Bureau. Volunteers still needed Donations will be collected in front of Village Food Markets, Western Foods, and Shoppers Drug Mart. The Christmas Bureau is seeking volunteers to assist with the food collection (up until December 14), sorters ( up until December 21) and distributers (on December

21). “The shifts are reasonable, and fun is guaranteed,” writes Pat Phillips in a press release. The Sooke Lionesses will be there to serve a lunch to the volunteers on December 20 and the 21. The Harbourside Lions will be on hand to provide warm drinks, lots of laughter, and big hearts on distribution day. Those interested in volunteering with food collection can call the Fire Chief Sorensen, at 250-642-1630. Those interested in sorting can call Lynne Bruhn at 250-642-1534 Supporting events Also raising money and donations for the Sooke Christmas Bureau is the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra. The Sooke Philharmonic Chamber Players will be performing with the Sooke Philharmonic Chorus for their Christmas Carol Sing-along. Wade Noble will be conducting the “Season’s Splendour” on Saturday, November 30 at the Sooke Baptist Church. The performance starts at 7:30 p.m., and a portion from every ticket sold will go towards their Christmas fundraising activities.

It is estimated that nearly 1 in 3 people will experience shingles in their lifetime, and the risk increases after the age of 50. Shingles usually begins with a burning sensation, a mild itching or tingling or a shooting pain in a specific area of skin. A rash then appears and blisters develop, which may be painful or itchy. Zostavax is recommended for the prevention of shingles and for immunization of individuals over 50 years of age. We can administer the injection at the pharmacy.

Sooke has a lot of amazing volunteers living in its midst. Some are older and gracious who offer both time and talent. Fewer are the younger ones, and those who do volunteer, give by the bucketful. One of the most recently recognized youth is Sooke’s own Sophie Adams, who received the Save-On -Foods Amazing Kids recognition on Thursday, November 7, along with a $1,000 scholarship. When the Sooke News Mirror first learned about Adam’s then-upcoming award, our attempts to get in touch with Sophie were unsuccessful. Why? She was in Vancouver participating in a Provincial Youth for Change Symposium. That was the first indicator that 15-yearold Adams was a young dynamo determined to make a difference. And then the testimonials came flooding in. Mitzi Dean, the executive director of Pacific Centre Family Services, spoke highly of Adam’s contributions. “I wanted to let you know that she is volunteering in the PCFSA Sooke Stories Across the Ages program, for which the award is being made,” wrote Dean. “This has been running in the community for four years and is a wonderful example of collaboration between PCFSA, Ayre Manor, the School District and the Sooke Literacy program. The purpose is

They describe Adams

as a “ray of sunshine” who is “very upbeat and present.” Many student volunteers put in their required 30 hours and then move on. Adams will be hitting her two-year mark in a few short months. Besides assisting with the planned activities, they say Adams is readily available to take the residents for walks, and has been known to give a manicure or two. When asked why she does this kind of volunteer work, Adams answers frankly and honestly. “I just love it,” she said. “I love the people I work with, the coordinators are amazing, and the residents are so sweet. “I’ve developed a good relationship with the residents with dementia,” reflects

Adams. “They may not remember my name, but they light up when they see me.” “One of the many reasons why Sophie was selected was her volunteer work here every weekend at Ayre Manor,” said MacGillivary. As well Adams covers the other end of the spectrum and volunteered at Ahimsa, doing childminding while the adults stretched, flexed and relaxed. She also covers the gamut athletically. Adams practices yoga herself, and she enjoys the centring aspect of yoga, its calm. Then there’s also her other, rugby-playing side. “I like the tough, I like the mud, I like the dirt, and how rough it is,” she smiles. The EMCS rugby girl’s team came in second last year,

mation from many local organizations… She’s motivational, health conscious, community minded and a great leader!” Alissa Laurin, a community relations representative from CTV, said those selected for their Amazing Kids are exceptional individuals under the age of 18 whom have demonstrated excellence in a number of areas: athletics, academics, the arts, and have proven to be leaders in their communities. Adam’s excellence extends beyond her volunteerism and reflects equally exemplary in her academics. At the end of the last school year at Edward Milne community school (EMCS), Adams was awarded the Junior Girls’ Athlete of the

though it could have been first. “We’re going to make it first this year,” she says with a twinkle in her eye. Adams received recognition from the Sooke Youth Council, and was awarded their Youth Volunteer Award in May, 2013.

A businessman and a bit of a rake Logger Harry Vogel has long roots in Sooke

Perhaps the suggestion that he was a rake is a bit strong, but it seems Harry Vogel, a teamster, logging camp operator and jack of all trades, got a bit of a reputation as a charming ladies’ man. Born in Minnesota, he arrived in Canada as a youngster in 1895. The earliest references we have seen show him working for a logging outfit in the Comox Valley developing his teamster skills up to 1910. Soon after, he was in the Otter Point area setting up on his own, using horse teams to haul logs to the water on skid roads. He logged on the property of widowed Kate Gordon, a London socialite who had arrived as a bride in 1890 with her British husband. When Ted Gordon suffered a heart attack in 1912, she had inherited the farm and extensive lands. In about 1914, Harry Vogel was contracted by Milligan Logging to carry out horse-logging above the Gordon Farm; he is reported to have used five or six matched teams. Widowed Kate Gordon and dashing Harry Vogel were married in 1919 on a trip to Vancou-

ver, and he built a fine new two-storey home for her on the northwest side of Otter Point Road (on the route it followed at that time, now Otter Pt Place). Longtimers in the area will know this house as home to the Dunnetts and the Purdys before it burned down in the early 1970s. Around 1920 he started a camp and sawmill in the Clark Road/Otter Point Road area. Local men who worked for Vogel Logging included teamster Reg Clark and a crew of Ernie Fletcher, Andrew Davidson, Bill and Bert Shambrook, Harry George, Tony and Wilf Sullivan and Ed Clark. The 1921 Otter District census shows Harry Vogel as age 35, and Kate as 47. One of his legacies was the building of the Otter Point Memorial Hall, in

tribute to those who lost their lives in World War I; this building was host to local social events for many years. In 1923 Vogel Logging was cutting Douglas-fir, Sitka spruce and western hemlock, operating with sixteen horses and a five ton truck for hauling. His experience with horses led him to management of the stables for the Belvedere Hotel (now Castle Beer & Wine store) and he enjoyed riding with pack teams up the Sooke River to the lodge of the Alpine Club of Canada at Sheilds Lake. One of the feats that earned local glory for him, along with the husky loggers who did the pulling, was his

coaching of winning tug-of-war teams at All Sooke Day. Starting out coaching the Sooke team, when Elder Logging Company got established, he moved to become the Elder team’s coach, and an unbeatable reputation followed. After Kate’s passing in 1955, Harry moved to the Saanich area, married another widow and went into land development. He passed away in 1974 and rests in Colwood/ Hatley Cemetery.

Jason Dum

Car Care “Musts” You Don’t Want to Skip

(Antifreeze/Coolant Protection)

Why: WHY: The primary task of an engine coolant is to transfer heat from the engine to the radiator where it is removed by the passing airflow. Modern engine coolants also prevent the cooling system from freezing or boiling, protect the engine and cooling system from rust and corrosion and lubricate the water pump seals and other cooling system components. WHEN: Check the coolant level at every oil change. With a cold engine, the radiator should be completely full and the coolant level in the remote reservoir should be at or above the “cold” level marking. Have the system flushed and refilled with fresh coolant at the interval specified in your vehicle owner’s manual. This can vary widely, from every two years to more than 100,000 miles, depending on the coolant type used. Simple and inexpensive testers are available to check the coolant’s level of antifreeze protection. Always top up the system with a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water to avoid altering the antifreeze level. Be aware that some coolants come pre-mixed with water and others do not.  Some manufacturers require the use of specific coolant types. Check your owners’ manual for the coolant your vehicle needs. BOTTOM LINE: Maintain the antifreeze/coolant to avoid overheating in the summer or freezing in the winter — both of which can result in costly damage to your car.

A: A backflow preventer in this context is a device installed on a water line which prevents flow in the wrong direction. The purpose of these is to prevent contamination of the public drinking water from non-potable contaminants. There are approximately 30,000| installed in Greater 250-883-7271 PlumbPerfect@shaw.ca Victoria. They are a mechanical device and subject to fouling/failure, and therefore need testing and occasional repair to maintain function. Testing is done using a differential pressure gauge by a certified backflow prevention tester. We have both here at Plumb-Perfect in Sooke so give us a call!

EDITORIAL CARTOON

Retain amenity contributions District of Sooke council is taking another look at an amendment they made to the Community Amenity Contribution Policy when they were first in office. It appears the amendment was fine until they came to a real case sceanrio. Amenities are what developers pay the district for allowing increased density or zoning changes in certain zones and the policy and monetary commitment was changed to try and encourage more development in the town core. Well that hasn’t happened in the town core but it has outside the core and with a new proposal before council, it was realized the gain to the district would be zero with the policy as it is. The whole amendment was “pushed” by one councillor who complained that no one wanted to come to Sooke to build anything in the town core. It is highly unlikely that an amenity contribution was the off-putting consideration. There are many reasons why, the least of which is an amenity contribution that most communities have in place. Developers expect to pay something and if they really want to come here they will, a contribution won’t scare them off. What the big problem with increased development in the town core is money, or lack of it. The world economy, still has not recovered and developments are going belly up all over the place, take Colwood Corners as an example. What we don’t need is a huge hole in the ground with nothing being built. It is hoped the Evergreen Centre office building will be rebuilt soon, but it’s doubtful. We will be waiting a few years for that. The point is, the district should not be giving up on development and they should not be giving up the amenities so desperately needed for infrastructure. We have to wait out this economic climate and not be so anxious that we get nothing. Council Briefs are on-line at www. sookenewsmirror.com.

Two solitudes on B.C. farmland  B.C. Views My late father used to say that if he ever won the lottery, he would “farm until it’s all gone.” It was 1960 when he and my mother pulled up stakes in the Okanagan, where their families had been for generations, and moved north to carve a homestead out of a half section in the Peace River country. So it’s a mainly northern perspective that I bring to the latest debate over B.C.’s agricultural land reserve. A dialogue of the deaf has been going on for decades in B.C., where there are two separate realities in agriculture. The dominant voice is always from the southwest, from the Okanagan to the Fraser Valley to southern Vancouver Island. This is not only B.C.’s most productive land, it’s also the place of greatest population and development pressure, where three million of the province’s four million residents live and more arrive every day. In the rest of the province, except for pockets that are attractive for recreational development, farming is a tough row to hoe. These days, people are more likely to be moving away. In our urbanized society, the loudest voices tend to be the least informed, from backyard-chicken hipsters to what I call “drive-by environmentalists,” who like to look out their car windows at green fields as

they motor from their subdivisions to big-box stores. The elderly Sikhs and Mexican guest workers bent over in the fields don’t need their lofty lectures on “food security.” Voices from the rest of the province are seldom heard and quickly shouted down, as was the case at the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver. Merritt councillor Mike Goetz pleaded for relief from an Agricultural Land Commission that refuses to release a property that has “grown nothing but rocks and tumbleweeds for the last 100 years.” Similar property next door was released, but not this parcel, blocking a project for five years in a little town that could use the work and additional tax base. Urban sprawl isn’t a big problem in Merritt, which like many small towns is trying to hang onto its population. Spallumcheen councillor Ed Hanoski described the situation beyond the towns, the real rural B.C. He proposed easing the restrictions on building a second home on farm properties. Currently, farmers can put a mobile home on their property for an elderly or infirm relative, but nothing with a permanent foundation. Once that relative moves or passes away, the home is supposed to be removed. Hanoski said a sewage system for such a residence costs around $12,000. Add the temporary founda-

tion, skirting, well hookup, power, landscaping, driveway, and a mobile home that will lose its value if it has to be moved, and the property owner takes a loss of $150,000 or more. That’s why the removal rule is routinely ignored in rural B.C., Hanoski said. These second homes are the only rental stock there is, providing modest income for marginal farms, and should be allowed permanent foundations. Motion defeated, after a scolding from a Sunshine Coast delegate about people lusting to build mansions on farmland. I asked Bill Bennett, the cabinet minister in charge of the latest agricultural land review, about a rumoured proposal to split the province into two zones with different rules. He declined to comment, but described the case of Fort Steele Farms, the East Kootenay community’s only market garden that almost closed because the next generation was initially refused permission for a second home. The two zones approach deserves serious consideration. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalNews.com Twitter:@tomfletcherbc E-mail: tfletcher@blackpress.ca

We asked: Do you think it’s time to consider a deer cull in Sooke?

No, because God doesn’t want it, and it’s disgusting.

It’s time for consideration, to see if the time is right, when the time is right. There’s been a drop in my neighbourhood.

I have a hard time with the ethics of killing animals to make life easier for people. We need to consider alternatives before we consider a cull.

They don't bother me, and they are in my yard. If they do get rid of them, I'd like them to drop one off at my place.

Cats need help We are writing this letter to ask Sooke residents  to call us when they want  to know about our society’s policies and regulations. Last week, we had a cat owner knocking in our door yelling and threatening us because somebody in Sooke said to her that  we  steal cats from people’s yards. After this person left another  person came  along with another no sense gossip. The rumor this time was that the owner of the barn had evicted us because we had couches in there, we were apparently living in the barn.      First,  all the cats under our care have been surrendered to us  by someone who knows the animal has been abandoned. Every cat under our care comes with a letter  signed by the angel who saved it. Second, it is real cruel to gossip about our eviction from the barn. After 18 months of hard work, just when we had  completed our renovations to give the cats a temporary home.   We saved 120 felines this year  and we are successfully finding homes for all of them. Yes, we have couches, those who visit, tame and adopt  the cats need them. It is not possible to live in the freezing barn with  no hydro or water.  We are doing what we can to survive and we pay  for vet bills,

letters food, gas,  improvements, and other necessities  with little donations or from our own pockets. Please, stop kicking us; we are already on the ground. We have nowhere to take these poor animals and the winter is already here.    Please, come help us with the cats,  help us find another place where to take them, help us find a lawyer.

We used to get it from the fish shop on Belvista or at the Crab Shack, then (when the rules changed?) there was the occasional truck with local guys selling from its bed (and you were lucky to find out about their locality in time to buy some) - but there seems to have been no commercial fishing of Sooke shrimp for a few years now.   I asked the woman at the newly-opened Belvista shop about this and her response was that no one is fishing them commercially, but she didn’t know why, though thought it might have something to do with the regula-

tions by which fish has to go off to be “processed” before it can be sold anywhere near where it’s caught.   As I want live and wriggling shrimp, processing is not what I need. Would love to know how to buy some. I believe Sooke shrimp is among the best in the world, if not the best. How does the fish shop on Sidney pier appear to get around the regulations, as they seem to process their own? Thanks. PS.  good to see that you are continuing in spite of all the problems!  Congratulations. Lesley Douch Sooke

Ho ho ho I recently found out the local Chamber of Commerce is putting together a Santa Claus Christmas Parade scheduled for December 8 at 12 noon to start at the Sooke Elementary School and heading west to Shields Rd. Good news indeed. It brings back some “home sweet home” memories for me, being up on my father’s shoulders, candy cane in hand, with a shortness of breath and excited anticipation of his arrival. I watched in amazement as each passing float, bands with majorettes, cowboys, horses, fire trucks and Santa. There he was… in all

his red and white glory. As most little boys and girls, Santa was my first super hero. “He might still be”… he says in an excited voice. No one could come close to this old man with his ho, ho, ho magic or his powerful jelly belly and everyone around me was beyond excited. I realized I was not alone. They loved him too. He was bringing happiness to everyone around us. The cheering, the waving… It was a wonderland indeed. Well, it’s now years later (much later) and still it excites me. Christmas! What a wonderful time of year, especially in a small community like our Sooke. And, with all of our local businesses and organizations participating, giving back in an abundance of lights and goodwill, it’s what our hearts need in this very busy world we live in. From time to time, I’ve considered living elsewhere but each and every time, I realized that home is where the heart is — Sooke. Oh ya… the road will be shut down for a few hours. Live with it. Ho, Ho, Ho. Merry Christmas to all. Kel Phair Sooke

Seniors plan rally

The Sooke Seniors’ Drop-In Centre is planing a rally for Monday, November 25 at 1:30 p.m. in front of the municipal hall at 2205 Otter Point Road. We urge all our seniors, and indeed each and every citizen of Sooke, to plan to attend and support us. We desperately need a permanent home for our seniors, a social hub for them to enjoy company, good food and entertainment. We need a place to come together every day of the week, where we can offer services that our seniors desperately need. A place for games, crafts, exercise and meals, a place for seniors to get together if even for just a cup of coffee and companionship. Every community in B.C. enjoys a centre for their seniors except Sooke. The seniors have supported this community for decades, and ask to be recognized and appreciated. Everyone will be a senior one day, and some may not be for-

Quince and what to do with it

Farmhouse Recipes

Be adventurous with quince This week I had another Sookee call with the question asking for some recipes of what to do with quince. The quince is quite abundant this year and it seems that bags of quince have been making their rounds in Sooke. Quince is a pearshaped fruit, hard as a rock and fuzzy on the

outside. It has a delicious, fruity scent and is extremely high in pectin. I use the juice for not only making quince jelly without added pectin, but also to add to fruits lacking in pectin when making other jams and jellies. It is also great to make membrillo, which will be another recipe. The last fellow, Bob, wanted to try chutney, so I gave him a rough recipe but he had forgotten the squash. The following is a recipe for quince-squash chutney. Cook 2 ice cream buckets of uncut quince, washed and defuzed in a pot with water about half way in the pot, with a lid. Watch carefully so as not to scorch.

SOOKE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION AGM

Cook a mediumsized yellow squash, kambucha or hubbard squash in water. I bake mine in water. When the quince is cooked, remove from liquid, retaining the liquid. Cool quince and then remove 4 cups of   the flesh and skin from the cores, into a large pot. While the quince is cooling remove 4 cups of squash from inside the skin into the pot. Add 1 cup apple cider vinegar and 2 cups quince juice. Blend with a hand blender or cook and mash. Add 1 cup raisins, 2 c. brown sugar, 1 tsp. each of cloves, allspice,

ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric. Cook slowly until well blended, again stirring and being watchful not to scorch, for about 20 minutes. Pour into hot sterilized jars with sterilized lids. Screw lids on but not to tightly. Put into boiling water bath for 20 minutes. Remove from bath, dry and label and enjoy with your favorite meat or with potatoes. Be adventurous.

Twaddle and claptrap Keith Sketchley’s letter Nov. 6 referred to my previous letter criticizing Tom Fletcher’s opinion column slamming teachers and their inability to teach employment skills. Mr. Sketchley attacks my disagreement with Tom Fletcher’s assertion that the BCTF is in a conspiracy to brainwash our students which apparently leaves them without employable skills. Mr. Sketchley agrees with Tom Fletcher and piles on accusing the BCTF of neo-Marxist lingo like social justice and globalization. Then Mr. Sketchley slams our education system, and teachers for failing to stop bullying in schools. Apparently teachers have a lot to answer for. But Mr. Sketchley bemoans the lack of educational units extolling petroleum products and agricultural productivity. Well, I can certainly see why Mr. Sketchley and his,”truth about BCTF activities” agrees with Tom Fletcher. However let’s remember that the Ministry Of Education sets curriculae and monitors the success or failure of students to learn the Intended Learning Outcomes. Mr. Sketchley goes on to say that poverty is not caused by responsible budgets. I couldn’t agree more. It’s irresponsible budgets that have a lot to do with poverty. This is when governments legislate poverty with attacks on wages that increase lines at food banks for the now working poor and sneaky tax increases through fees for just about everything. All this while cutting taxes to business friends who bankroll their election campaigns. The cost of these favours to the

the Jordan river ladies, Joan and Doreen were attending their booth at the All sooke Arts & Crafts Christmas Fair this past weekend. likes of “Big Forestry” and “Big Aquaculture” are covered by cutting services to the old, the need, the infirm and the young. Social   justice, Mr. Sketchley, speaks to the these issues and others like abandoning the needs of our war veterans or loading special needs students into crowded classrooms where they will be left behind. A heathy economy results from a healthy society that is inclusive and does not create winners and losers. This is one goal of schools and is an important conversation to have.

A conversation that is not advanced by more twaddle and claptrap. Ted Roberts Sooke

Move ceremony to park Sooke has grown, and the very important Remembrance Day ceremony has outgrown its Legion Parking lot venue. Unless we move the ceremony to a bigger space, children growing up in Sooke will only remember Remembrance Day

ceremonies as muffled voices, the backs of heads, and long crowded waits. The children will not remember the speeches, the choir singing or the wreaths being laid during this important time, and Remembrance Day will soon lose its meaning to this new generation. It is time to move the ceremony, or part of it, to a larger more public space. The parade route could easily end there. Ed Macgregor Park would provide the perfect backdrop for remembering those who did so much for our country (and still do). Of course we would need to come up with a way to get flag poles there but that can’t be too difficult considering the feat of creating the boardwalk.   The Legion itself will still continue to play an important role, and many of the activities may still remain there on Remembrance Day along with the ongoing tribute to our veterans via various functions throughout the year. Just a thought to keep this special day closer to the hearts of our young people. Carol A. Walling Sooke

Where Would We Be Without The Women

Rob Davies, left, president of the All Sooke Arts & Crafts Fair shares a chuckle with vendor Roy Holder during the weekend-long fair held at the Sooke Community Hall.

So often I am amazed with the women in the parish for how would anything happen without them. I am so thankful for their volunteering, their being present to help in whatever ways they can. What is even more amazing is the age of these women for many of them are in their middle to senior years and have been present and helping out for years already. I could give examples of where the women are helping out in the parish, however the article would be too long with all the countless ways they help out.

Our other church communities in Sooke would have similar experiences of their women helping out in so many ways. When I look at the scriptures during Jesus public ministry it was the women who nurtured Jesus and the disciples always present and supporting them. Today I know from experience the women in the parish are always giving their nurturing support and I am so thankful as they are a blessing to us in our parish community. It is the same in the many service groups and organizations here in Sooke and beyond. Fr. Mike Favero, St. Rose of Lima Church

What’s happening at Poirier Student reporters detail the action at Ecole Poirier elementary school Lindsay Drabitt

Special to the sooke news mirror

A lot of fun programs and events have been happening at Poirier. First of all, there are boys’ and girls’ basketball programs happening at lunch and recess. The boys do it in the morning, and the girls do it in the afternoon. On October 31, we had the Halloween party! It was a lot of fun. Everyone wore their Halloween costumes and we played games, and had a lot of fun at the Halloween dance at the end of the day! On November 29, Poirier is having Hat Day! Hat Day is where everyone at Poirier wears a goofy hat, a funny hat, a creative

hat, or just a plain regular hat. It’s a lot of fun seeing all the different hats! On November 8, we had the Remembrance Day assembly. We had a special presentation from a veteran, and thought of our rights and freedoms, because if the veterans hadn’t fought for our rights and freedoms, the students at Poirier wouldn’t be here and I wouldn’t have written this. At Poirier we have a program called the Peer Helpers program. Peer helpers are kids in fifth grade who wear black jackets with “Peer Helper” on the back in silver and they go around the school helping kids who are hurt or being bullied, or have no one to play with. There is also a garden club. The garden club is a group of kids who like to garden, or are just interested in gardening, who get together some recesses in the school garden to work on their gardening skills, as well as making the school garden even better.

One of the athletic clubs is cross country. Cross country is a running group that competes in races. Some of the students in cross country have done really well! There is also an Aboriginal Arts program. It’s where students get together in the Aboriginal Arts room with the Aboriginal Arts teacher and make crafts and learn about the First Nations people. We also do fundraisers such as selling Smencils (scented pencils) and these really fun hats that look like animals called Knitwits. Everyone at Poirier has a lot of fun and helps out a bit with fundraisers and I’m very glad I attend this school.

jeudi au dîner, les garcons ont la pratique mardi et jeudi aussi, mais au matin. On a aussi une demijournée le 21 novembre et le jour qui suit, le 22 on n’a pas d’école. Alors n’oublie pas de ne pas aller à l’école le 22 novembre! N’oublie pas c’est la journée de lait tous les mercredis. C’est 1.00$ pour le chocolat et 75 cents pour le lait blanc. Le 29 c’est la journée des chapeaux YOUPIE! N’oublie pas de porter un chapeau intéressant ou un chapeau de baseball. Cela ne fait rien ce que c’est; c’est amusant de participer! Finalement, les pairs aidants vont être dehors pour aider les enfants avec leurs problèmes. Ils vont porter des manteaux avec “Peer Helpers” inscrits au dos, en argent.

Electronic resource inventory now on-line Whether you’re publicizing a local event, seeking a service, or wondering what’s happening in our area, the Sooke Region Resource Inventory (RI) can help. This electronic resource launched in 2010 by the Sooke Region Community Health Initiative (CHI) in partnership, and funded by the District of Sooke and Island Health, and may be viewed at www.sookeregionresources.com “When we began this project, we had no idea that there were so

many non-profit organizations in the area,” says RI coordinator Marlene Barry. “Our claim to be a Volunteer Capital of Canada is well-founded: there are more than 180 local non-profit groups, clubs and charities; and over 75 of them are already included in the RI. This calendar is the only local on-line source in ‘calendar format’ for a clear overview of the region’s events. With the new upgrade, we’ll be able to start using social media to share local information.”

Besides the new social media section, newsletter, blog and media capabilities, the new RI retains the volunteer opportunities directory, directory of local resources, information on local recycling, links page, and information on using the site. The Sooke Region Resources site is designed to be a comprehensive inventory of programs, services

and information for the communities from Beecher Bay to Port Renfrew.  The site connects community members, both new and longstanding, with the information they need, whether it be recreation and leisure, employment and education, or health care and social services. Organizations that advance the social determinants of health are invited

to participate, this includes clubs, PAC’s and more. Listings are free, and each organization maintains its own listing. The site is now managed by the Sooke Region Volunteer Centre, another project of CHI.

National Sports Day: Just do ... something

The Sooke Fall Female Faceoff tournament was a great success. They had 342 players participate, and the work of running the tournament was done by 47 volunteers. The skills competition was well attended, with 312 spectators watching. The Prestige was fully booked, the local restaurants were really busy. There was also an opportunity at SEAPARC to send a note to the Canadian athletes going to Sochi’s winter Olympics, and 525 people took advantage of this opportunity to send notes. All in all, it was a great success that received raving reviews from participating teams.

Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

Saturday Nov. 30 is National Sports Day. If you want the real, sponsor-ladened mouthful, it’s officially known

as “RBC Sports Day in Canada, presented by ParticipACTION, CBC and True Sport.” But really, bottom line here is that it is a day to get out and do some kind of sports thing. And if you’re more of a go-getter, it’s a day to get out and organize some kind of sports thing. SEAPARC is making it somewhat easy to participate in a sports activity as they will be hosting a couple of lowcost events to coincide with national efforts. First, there is the awareness component. As is advertised in the SEAPARC’s Fall Activity Guide, interested

parties can “Enter our colouring contest and draw a jersey with what it means to be Canadian. Entries will be displayed in the centre. Pick up colouring sheet at the front desk. You could win a free set of swim lessons!” One assumes these interested parties are particularly interested in colouring. It is the parents’ of said interested parties who could advocate this activity. The week leading up to the National Sports Day, starting on November 23, is officially known as Community Engagement week. During this week, SEAPARC is participating in National Jersey Day. “On Nov. 29 we will also be supporting National Jersey Day where everyone is encouraged to wear their favourite jersey,” details SEAPARC’s aquatic programmer Elizabeth Olson. “If you wear your jersey you can play youth hockey, or parent and child hockey, for $2 dollars.” But wait, there’s more. On November 30, SEAPARC will be hosting events that includes a $2 swim that runs from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. on November 30. Showcased at this swim will be a number of aquatic sports for families to come and try out. “We will have water polo and under water hockey set up,” said Elizabeth Olsen..

⍟ SEAPARC SNIPPET

SEAPARC received a $300 grant from the organizers of National Sports Day. “The grant money received will go toward purchasing equipment in particular some water polo nets,” said Olsen. But it’s not just organizations that can do something for this day. If you want to organize an event, like a basketball game, a backyard game of baseball, or neighbourhood game of tag, you can officially register that event at sportsday.cbc.ca — and have a chance of winning some prizes. And if you do opt to do this and want to open your event up to the community, get the recognition you deserve by registering your event with sportsday.cbc.ca. Or, just go online to sportsday.cbc.ca and find other local events. Consider Sooke Minor Hockey, as an example, who are (so far) the only ones registered with an event. On Sunday, November 24, they are hosting a Lace-em-up Day where all participants will borrow gear from other active players and will get instruction on skating, and basic hockey skills. They will have pucks and nets on the ice and the coaches will be helping with instruction and drills, based on ability. A component of this will be a “BC Try-it Day — Female Hockey,”

where curious players can bring or borrow equipment and give it a try. All females between the ages of five and 18 are invited to try, at no cost. The ice-time is from 12:30 to 1:50 p.m., followed by an after-ice party from 2 - 3 p.m. Mostly, though, Sports Day is about getting active and tapping into all the benefits a community has to offer. As their promotional material outlines, “It’s an opportunity for all Canadians to celebrate the power of sport to build community, fortify our national spirit and facilitate healthy, active living.” Based on the registration form, an event can be something like a league game, a school or workplace activity, an athletic open house, or a try-it-out day (like what Sooke Minor Hockey League’s event). Sports can include anything from ping pong and frisbee to water polo and gymnastics. It can be open to the public, but does not need to be. So if you have any events planned, such as community-wide festivals, try-it days, open houses, games, competitions, meet-andgreets, tournaments, fun runs, spectator events and pep rallies, put Sooke on the map by registering it sportsday.cbc.ca.

JERSEY DAY Friday, November 29th Wear your favourite team jersey to Youth Hockey drop-in or Family and Friends Hockey Drop-in and you get to play for $2!

Sooke Festival of Trees Fundraiser for the BC Children’s Hospital at the SEAPARC Leisure Complex Consider becoming a tree sponsor this year. Please contact Elizabeth Olsen, at 250-213-6716 or by email at sookefestivaloftrees@gmail.com if you would like an information package.

Running towards next season’s sun

Britt Santowski photo

Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

The wet rainy bleak season is upon us. What is one to do? Why, think of the pending sunny days on the other side of course! And if you’re a runner, you’ll probably start jogging in that general direction.

Triathlons

Triathlons, for those not in know, are athletic events that involve three components: cycling, swimming, and running. Over the past year, the Sooke News Mirror covered the successes of our Triathlon racers. Owen Stampflee, Melanie Cunningham, Daralee Hanton, Danny Eddy, Natacha Lemire, Brigitte Church, Wyatt Church, and Len Church were just a few of the Sooke athletes whose successes we tracked over the past sunny season. The call just came out from the Subaru Western Triathlon coor-

dinators that the series is ready to launch and early birds are welcome to register. And these early birds will get a big fat tasty worm. Otherwise known as a “Special Price.” Subaru Triathlons to be held this year include Shawnigan Lake (May 25), Victoria (June 15), Saskatoon (June 29), Vancouver (July 3), and Banff (Sep. 6). All registrants that sign up by November 30 are entered into a draw for an Aqua Sphere wetsuit and weekend for two at the Oceanfront Suites in Cowichan Bay. According to their press release, there will be a few new features, including a new Trestle Challenge in Shawnigan and an expected music festival in Victoria. “Vancouver will once again be Long Distance National Championships and also add a Half Iron distance Aqua Bike course - perfect preparation for Whistler.”

If getting wet and cycling are not your thing, and you’d rather stick with just running, there are a few runs you might want to start training for. Some 2014 local running dates include: • The 10th Annual Stewart Mountain 10 or Five Mile X-Country Challenge around Thetis Lake, Dec. 14, 2013 • The ominoussounding MEC Hypothermic Half Marathon in Victoria, Feb. 17, 2014 • The MEC Sooke River 10K, on April 13, 2014, • The Goose 50K (five runner) relay (http://www. g o o s e re l a y. c a / ) , May 10, 2014, and • The TC10K, April 27, 2014 • The Victoria Goddess Run in Lang-

ford, June 1, 2014

Sooke’s STARRs

Sooke does have a self-started running group called Sooke Trail and Road Runners (STARR), and we’ve also periodically featured their athletes from time to time. While STARR is not a starr-ting group, they do open up their runs to anyone comfortable running a good solid base of five kilometres. According to Jackie Eddy, one of the founders, group members have done well with their sport. “Several STARRs completed the Goodlife Marathon, half-marathon and the 8K this October,” said Eddy. “One favourite of mine is the Kusam Klimb held in June each year. This is a 23k trail event in Sayward. Very gruelling and so rewarding. Danny, Vince and I have

been going every year only missing the inaugural event. We have introduced several more STARRs to this challenging event. And our cabins are already booked for 2014.” Mostly, though, STARR runners excel in having fun and benefiting from shared knowledge. “We have fun exploring trails and our expanding neighborhood,” says Eddy. “We share information as it pertains to various running events as well as general trends and tips to improve our skills and minimize injury.” You can find this group through their Facebook fan page, at facebook.com/SookeTrailandRoadRunners

Atom A as good as Gold

Sooke Loggers dumped 3-0

Over the long weekend, the Sooke Atom A boys played in the Saanich Atom Remembrance Day Tournament. They were placed in a very competetive Tier 1 and 2 pool. and faced some of their toughest competition of the season. After claiming seven out of nine possible points in round robin play and taking down the home team, Saanich A, in a gritty 4-1 battle, the Atom A boys moved on to the semi-finals to take on Comox A. In what was a very intense game between two skilled teams, Sooke won by a score of 5-2 and solidified their spot in the gold medal game. Later that same day, Sooke Atom A hit the ice to play the championship game against Langley A3, an extremely strong team from the mainland. Sooke scored on their first shift, played with drive and determination, showed great skill and sportsmanship.... Ultimately coming out on top 6-1 and taking home their second consecutive gold medal of the season! Kudos to the players, coaches and parents for another very successful tournament!

An away fixture on the weekend against first place Vantreights saw the Loggers get dumped by a quick and youthful Vantreights side 3-0. “Vantreights scored three goals again, the same score we lost to them in the season opener,” recalls Porter. “We haven’t yet reached our full potential,” says Porter, “but clearly we are on a slow and steady march forward.” At the moment, the Sooke Loggers are currently tied for second in the league, so they are in great shape. Loggers next game is Saturday night away against Gorge at Hampton Park 8 p.m. kick-off.
