Beating violence against women the aim

Art With A Heart: Victim Heidi Mendenhall and friends helping CWAV, Somenos House Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

H

eidi Mendenhall thought she was dead. Her drunk boyfriend’s fists kept pounding her, knocking out her front teeth. Some of her scalp was already torn away. He tried drowning Mendenhall in a mud puddle while she began losing consciousness during the 15-minute sidewalk beating. Neighbours heard her screams. They did nothing as Mendenhall passed out. “They actually thought I was dead,” she remembered of the horrific night three years ago. “They were talking about what to do with my body, but I came to.” Somehow, Mendenhall was taken to Cowichan District Hospital. During three weeks recovery, Mendenhall, 35, vowed to help women and girls avoid situations that nearly killed her. She also aims to address the ignorance of apathy during violence against women. “People look away. They think it’s not their business — at least care enough to call the cops; help our community. “I’m strong enough now to help others escape the kind of life I went through,” she said.

“It was like being reborn.” Her biggest step toward ending domestic violence and child abuse is Monday’s non-profit Art With A Heart fundraiser in the Duncan Mall. Mendenhall gained seed money from generous local businesses. Twenty women will see colourful makeup transform their faces into Mexican sugar skulls, images designed by Mendenhall to celebrate brave spirits of various female roles in society: bride, nurse, crying woman, warrior, gay pride. Their magical mugs will be photographed by Lisa Petterson, then grace a $20, 16-month calendar called Beautiful Faces With Voices. Calendars can be ordered Monday during the 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. open-set. Folks can watch models being merrily morphed by hairdressers Tammy Coyston Lloyd and Barb Stevens of Hair at 60 Queens, and Kim Simmonds. Make-up artists are Mendenhall and Lindsay Scribner. Nov. 25 also marks the International Day Against Violence Against Women. It starts 16 days of activism against gender violence as Cowichanians are invited to hang strings of purple lights symbolizing bruises. Monday’s mall pictures will also hang in the arts council’s PORTALS gallery (Island Savings Centre) during a February exhibit-

benefit. Proceeds will go to Cowichan Women Against Violence Society, and women’s safe-haven Somenos House. But before that February display, CWAV stages its Dec. 6 noon vigil at VIU’s Cowichan campus, remembering the 1989 deaths of 14 female students shot at Montreal’s L’Ecole Polytechnique. It was all senseless to open-hearted Mendenhall, a mother of four who had a lousy start. “I was found inside a box in Costa Rica.” Still, she’s proof it’s never too late to reclaim dignity and help others avoid or escape violence and shame. “There are better ways of dealing with violence,” she said of speaking to students in high- and middle schools, plus counseling. “There’s so much pain and suffering, for nothing.” Little justice too, she lamented of her former partner who did about a year in jail. He’s out now. Mendenhall has forgiven, but can’t forget. Memories of her brush with death will hopefully warn other women about guys like him. “Be careful about people you choose to live with, and look into their background history — before committing to them,” she said.

Heidi Mendenhall with type of ‘sugar skull’ her team will make Monday to help fight abuse of women and children. Cowichan’s rate of violence against women is about double B.C.’s average.

Warmland resident dies after being struck on highway Peter W. Rusland

uncan’s Jimmy Galbraith died in Victoria hospital Tuesday night due to injuries suffered after being hit crossing the Trans-Canada Highway near James Street Monday. Jeff Sherman and Rob Aulis, Warmland House shelter workers, were called to Victoria General Hospital by surgical

staff to identify Galbraith. “They had no idea who he was,” Sherman said after learning of Galbraith’s dire condition. He and Aulis had a hard decision to make about the quality of life left for Galbraith, who suffered shattered legs and ribs, and had a heart attack during surgery. They signed a do-not-resuscitate order and he died at 6:40 p.m. Tuesday. “It was the worst thing I ever had to do,” Sherman said.

Galbraith was a homeless fellow who lived in one of Warmland’s small upstairs suites for about four years. He volunteered at the Duncan food bank for about two years — and staff leashed his colourful language. “He was in charge of our back deck,” said Colleen Fuller, manager of the Cowichan Food Basket. “He made sure people didn’t smoke out there, and he learned not to swear.” Sherman said he’s seen other pedestri-

ans hit, or nearly struck, trying to cross the busy highway between the James Street side and the McDonalds-Tim Hortons strip. That hazardous situation has left him and others demanding a pedestrian overpass. A celebration of life is slated for Galbraith, and fellow Warmland resident Gary Lauzon — who died of cancer in Cowichan hospital Nov. 18 — at 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 25 in the Duncan Garage Showroom. bchonda.com

Former Doman building sold for about $7 million by League Assets Duncan’s former Doman financial building, the Cowichan District Financial Centre, has been sold by Victoria’s League Assets group of companies for about $7 million to a Vancouver-based numbered company. League director Adam Gant also

confirmed Thursday his firm aims to sell Duncan Mall and Duncan Plaza. The sales are part of League’s restructuring under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act. “It was approved Tuesday and will close in about two weeks,” he said of

the three-story centre, Western Forest Products’ former headquarters on Trunk Road. Gant was optimistic the sales will help his firm repay its lenders. He expected the revamped 40,000-square-foot centre — bought

by the numbered firm under Paul Myers — would continue renovations to attract a mix of renters, now anchored by Scotiabank. Summer saw the mall and plaza amid multi-million dollar refinancing and foreclosure action against some of the complex’s owners.

ay Napier-Ganley’s happiest when he’s on the move. That’s what his folks, Jill Napier and Jim Ganley say about their five-year-old son who was diagnosed at five months old with a very rare condition. The Cobble Hill lad has Miller-Dieker Syndrome which is characterized by a pattern of abnormal brain development known as lissencephaly. Normally the exterior of the brain (cerebral cortex) is multi-layered with folds and grooves, but folks with lissencephaly have an abnormally smooth brain with fewer folds and grooves. That means Jay suffers from intellectual disability, developmental delay, seizures, abnormal muscle stiffness (spasticity), weak muscle tone (hypotonia), and feeding difficulties. On Wednesday, the NapierGanley clan was tickled to receive a second gift from the Help Fill A Dream foundation in a presentation at the Cobble Hill Country Grocer. “Money raised by Country Grocer and its customers helps children like five-yearold Jay from Cobble Hill,” stated a Help Fill the Dream press release. “Help Fill a Dream recently purchased a WIKE bike trailer for Jay so

The Help Fill A Dream organization has again made a huge impact on Cobble Hill parents Jim Ganley and Jillian Napier (far right) thanks to the generous help from Country Grocery staffers in Cobble Hill. Ganley and Napier’s five-year-old son Jay was diagnosed with a very rare condition called Miller-Dieker Syndrome (MDS) when he was about five months old. The nifty bike trailer donated to the family Wednesday will allow Jay to participate in more outdoor activities along with his two siblings and parents. he can spend more time with his active family.” Help Fill A Dream’s president Denyse Koo, executive director Craig Smith, as well as Country Grocer director Peter Cavin, and marketing manager Tammy Averill were on hand Wednesday at the Cobble Hill grocery branch. “This is only possible by community support through our foundation,” Smith said, thanking the grocer staffers, and also noting this is the second time they’ve supported the Napier-Ganley family.

About two years ago, they assisted the family with funds to build a wheelchair lift in their garage to transport Jay from their van into the house. “All the funds raised from this promotion help Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands children achieve their dreams,” said Smith. “For a child facing the uncertainty of a life-threatening condition, hope and happiness help the healing process. They are carried from a place of uncertainty and are shown that good things can still

happen in their future. “As the number of requests for dreams continues to grow, we are extremely proud that with the support of our generous community partners like Country Grocer, we can continue to say ‘yes’ to the increasing number of children who need the gift of a dream.” With this second dream come true, the Napier-Ganleys are stoked they can now take Jay to more places they couldn’t before. And that includes bike rides and walks on dirt, gravel and

sand as well as family camping trips with his two siblings. “It’s always important to us he’s a part of what we do together,” said Ganley on Wednesday. “I know we will all enjoy it. “When he’s grumbly, almost always the solution is getting him moving.” Country Grocer locations are continuing to fundraise with proceeds of every ‘dream bouquet,’ paper shirt or island-grown Christmas tree sold between now until Dec. 14 going to the foundation.

ridge on the River Chemainus has had its reopening date delayed for the third time. The new $5-million span under construction is now slated to re-open to traffic Dec. 2. It was previously to reopen Nov. 25. But North Cowichan Mayor Jon Lefebure explained the latest delay happened as contractor, Jacob Brothers Construction, was measuring the steel bridge’s fresh-concrete strength — while making up lost time after a worker was electrocuted in June. He survived. Ensuring proper power pole and line installation has also spelled time lags on the bridge, replacing the former wooden span, he explained. But good things do take time, signalled Lefebure, pointing to concrete deck and core samples poured on the weekend. Those samples gauge the span’s strength as the concrete dries, and before vehicles can cross. “Cracks could reduce the life of the bridge,” Lefebure said of the structure he expected should last at least 50 years. “By Dec. 2 there should be enough curing of the concrete to allow traffic.”

udding teachers will be able to complete their degrees in Cowichan starting in September 2014, according to a Vancouver Island University press release. “We’re excited to offer this program in Cowichan and improve access to education for local students and those living in surrounding communities,” stated interim director of enrollment management Tina McComb. VIU’s Bachelor of Education program to train elementary school teachers has normally only been offered at the Nanaimo campus. But starting next school year, students will be offered the chance of completing a five-year Bachelor of Education degree program in

the Warm Land. McComb says some students may prefer the smaller, more intimate learning environment offered at the Cowichan campus. Some students will also have the option of saving money by living at home and not having to commute to Nanaimo. Education advisor David Sufrin says those students will also have opportunities to complete practicum assignments in various schools throughout the Cowichan region, elsewhere in B.C., and internationally. And in some cases, these experiences lead to permanent teaching jobs. Sufrin uses grad Jeff Saunders, who participated in several practicum assignments while completing his degree, as an example. After graduation, Saunders hopped on a plane to London, England where he landed a job with Classrooms Canada as a substitute teacher.

Six months later, he returned to Canada to accept a full-time job in Prince Rupert where he currently teaches music and social studies. Sufrin’s leading an information session Nov. 27 for students interested in finding out more about the education program coming to Cowichan. The session takes place from noon to 1 p.m. in Room 215 at the Cowichan campus. Free pizza is also available. Students unable to attend this session can book an appointment to see or speak to Sufrin at 250740-6223 or can email questions to David.Sufrin@viu.ca. Eligible students selected to enter Year 3 of the program must have completed two years of postsecondary credits, including prerequisites of six credits of English, and three credits each of math, science and Canadian studies. All courses are offered at both the Nanaimo and Cowichan campuses.

undreds of homeless Cowichanians deserve a

smile. Three hundred and seventeen of them will get one next month, thanks to students and staff at Ecole Cobble Hill Elementary mounting Un Sourire Pourtous: Everyone Deserves A Smile. Cobble Hill is Cowichan’s only school tackling EDAS. Kindergarten to Grade 7 kids are hand-painting EDAS shopping bags and cards with merry Christmas images, but they need donations of new wool socks, toques, gloves, scarves, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and soap. Gift bags will be topped with cookies, then handed to needy folks through Duncan’s Warmland House, the Cowichan Valley Basket Society, Meals On The Ground, and the Friendship Centre. One bag reads ‘Happy holidays; We all care.’

Peter W. Rusland

Enthusiastic kids from Ecole Cobble Hill are stocking up on items to make needy folks in the valley smile. Students will stuff bags Dec. 12 and 13, then distribute them Dec. 16 onward. This is EDAS’ Cowichan debut. The campaign was started 10 years ago by Nanaimo’s Chantal Stefan, who’s now a school teacher. It proved so successful she’s spread the Noel joy across the island and over to the mainland. Friend Jenny Izard, Duncan’s EDAS coordinator, said pupils get the gift of samaritanism in return for helping the homeless. Local numbers are unknown, growing, and now being counted. “Students learn about homelessness and building empathy and kind-

ness,” Izard said. Grade 5 student Sophia Hodgins and friends are stoked. “It’s good for the homeless people; they don’t have any food or shelter.” Grade 6er Quin Norman said merely giving needy folks money can be misdirected. “They can go and buy alcohol or something that’s not good for them.” Alli Milne, Grade 7, said EDAS “teaches us to care for other people not as fortunate as us.” Jaden Bowmans (Grade 7) said the gift bags hold “stuff they can’t get, and need to survive and stay

warm in the winter.” To Grade 6er Jessica Castle, EDAS is all about helping humans. “Just because they’re homeless, doesn’t mean they’re not human.” Izard agreed: “We hand the bags out and have human-to-human contact with these people.” Drop off locations are at Ecole Cobble Hill, Drumroaster Coffee (Cobble Hill), and Island Savings Centre’s ticket office where donors’ names will be added to the centre’s Christmas tree. Call the school at 250-733-2307, or Izard at 250-210-2887.

$42,500: The Real Deal

Friday, November 22, 2013

James wows the crowd Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

B “Yes, this is real”

— Sean Leitenberg, Canada’s Reno Rebate

-

T

he magic number of $42,500 has been popping up all over Vancouver Island, thanks to the representatives of Canada’s Reno Rebate Inc. They’ve been spreading the word about government rebates for new home purchases, owner-built homes and substantial renovations to existing homes during the tenure of the HST, and $42,500 is the upper limit a homeowner can receive for a project. Together with the Ontariobased company Rebate4U, Canada’s Reno Rebate Inc. has already helped homeowners apply for rebates totaling $8 million at time of printing. Many clients hesitate on their way out of Canada’s Reno Rebate principal Sean Leitenberg’s Fairfield office, where they have just handed over a sheaf of paperwork and receipts for a major home renovation. “Is this for real?” they ask Sean. That’s the most common question Sean gets, and his answer is a firm, “Yes, this is real.” Sean understands the skepticism, though. He asked the same thing when his brother-in-law in Ontario called him and said, “You might be entitled to a rebate on the HST you paid when you did your reno.” This rebate has been available for the last three years and it’s about to disappear. It must be claimed within two years of the purchase of a new house or condo or completion of an owner-built home or a major renovation. Even if you have sold your home, you are entitled to a rebate if your intention for the build or renovation was to keep the home. “There is a misconception that if your home is worth more than $450,000, you are not entitled to any government rebates, but this is just not true,” says Sean. Canada’s Reno Rebate has teamed up with builders, trades, designers and Realtors to share the good news about the potential rebate with their qualifying clients. “We know several contractors and Realtors who are going through their files and calling everyone they helped

to fix up or buy a house between July 1, 2010 and March 31, 2013 when the HST was repealed,” he says. It comes down to this: if you built or purchased a new home or did a substantial renovation to an existing home for yourself or for rental during that period, you are entitled to a rebate for a portion of the provincial sales tax embedded within the HST. Canada’s Reno Rebate Inc. handles all the paperwork and follows through with the government until you receive your cheque. Because Sean and his staff know the forms, the processes, and who to call, they efficiently and quickly collect the information and submit exactly what the government agencies need. The company charges no upfront fee and if you don’t receive a rebate, the application costs you nothing. Because all the required paperwork can be done via email and fax, “clients are coming to us from all over this great province,” says Sean. If you know someone who might qualify, you can pick up a postcard at Glen Lake Liquor & More or the Commons Liquor & More store in Duncan and pass it to your friend; if your friend receives a rebate through Canada’s Reno Rebate Inc., you’ll both receive a $50 gift certificate to help celebrate! “Handing people cheques for thousands of dollars that they had no idea they were entitled to is our goal,” Sean says. “We are happy to answer any questions that potential clients have, so give us a call. What have you got to lose?”

lues-rock choir boy Colin James gave the Nov. 13 Cowichan Theatre crowd every cent of its $45 ticket price. Opened, then backed, by fret freshman Chris Caddell — and a behind-the-curtain bassist — Junowinner James was in fine form on the stage’s rumpus-room setting. He chatted to fans, laughed, and cranked out a host of hits and familiar tunes. He even manned a harp on one tune. James was handed fresh guitars for songs spanning Five Long Years, National Steel, Watching The River Flow, Man’s Gotta Be A Stone, Just Came Back (To Say Good-bye), I Live The Life I Love, Why’d You Lie?, Love Comes Over You (by Jerry Lynn Williams), and Better Way To Heaven. The guys encored with his version of Van Morrison’s Into The Mystic. Colin, we like your stripped-down personal shows; now let’s bring your blues band back — better still, your

Generosity is the greatest gift of all Making it count: Many ways to make a difference

harity is the gift that gives year round. Cowichan’s unsung Samaritans include foodbank donors, Ecole Cobble Hill students launching Everyone Deserves A Smile gift bags for street people, Salvation Army kettle-drive volunteers, and Heidi Mendenhall’s Art With A Heart calendar project helping abused women and kids. Those are just for starters. We can’t say enough about locals who selflessly stepped up recently to offer a kidney to Audrey Schroeder. Or Peter Baljet’s annual Antifreeze Warm-Clothing Drive. Amazing. Then there are untold Cowichanians and service clubs that respond generously every time we run a story about a family, person or group in need. The News Leader Pictorial’s yearGiving needs round Pennies For Presents drive — now renamed Coins For Kids after the to go on all penny’s sad demise — is another avenue year against apathy. That’s what Christmas is all about. And as scriptures, and Scrooge, remind us, Christmas must be kept in our hearts all year, not just when the season’s commercial advertising starts. Giving feels good. A little bit goes a long way. It adds up to hands-on lessons and heartfelt reactions that can’t be taught in schools or churches. You have to give to receive this kind of lasting emotion. Rewards appear on the faces of homeless folks getting warm food during thrice weekly Meals On The Ground at downtown’s former Mound. Just ask social worker Chuck McCandless, food basket boss Colleen Fuller — or needy people themselves. It costs so little, but means so much. The north star symbolizes that glowing, unselfish spirit. Scrooge saw it too through those Christmas Eve ghosts who changed his miserly ways. Warm Land generosity proves we don’t really need spooks or stars to help us dig deep. We need every dime, minute of time, bar of soap, toque, and can of soup you can spare.

The case for

Stephen Harper is doing a good job as prime minister. The Canadian economy is doing well and he’s secured numerous international investments in our rich resources. That’s sure to provide even more high-paying jobs for years to come so the next generation will have long-term security to raise their families. It’s all because of Harper’s diligence that’s putting the country in good shape.

Is Stephen Harper a mere puppet in government?

Anticipated NDP convention fireworks fizzle out Patrick Hrushowy

was all prepared for a clash of titanic proportions and all I got was a party — a party to end all parties, to be exact. Last week’s B.C. NDP convention was to be a purging of pent-up anger resentment from There is no doubt and the grass roots after having defeat ripped the B.C. NDP is from the jaws of vicat a crossroads tory in May’s general election. There was and will need to going to be blood reinvent itself on the floor, on the walls and all over the place. Being a political junkie I was looking forward to a grand

spectacle. You can imagine my disappointment when the news media gave scant coverage to the convention. It was as if I was a sports fan prepared for football’s Super Bowl, beer-filled cooler at my side and piles of snacks within reach — only to have network TV cancel the game. Ever had a big firecracker in your hand, carefully lit its fuse and then tossed it – and all it did was go “pfifft”? That’s what the NDP convention seemed like to me. From the NDP point of view that was a good thing. The party is famous for taking its politics very seriously and engaging in bar-knuckle debates on the convention floor at the slightest opportunity. So, what happened? It would appear enough people in the party’s leadership recognized a grand political theatre of delegates devouring each other on the convention floor was not going to be a step into a successful future. The material promoting convention atten-

Stephen Harper is not as innocent as he makes himself out to be. Every time there’s a scandal such as the Senate fiasco, he seems to have a convenient answer for everything. Surely, he can’t be out of the loop that much or didn’t know about certain issues before the public found out. There’s just too many coincidences to be believable and perhaps the country would be better off with someone else in charge.

dance to party supporters plugged it as a “party to end all parties”. The double entendre was there if you cared to look for it — party hardy, as in having a good time (and not fighting) and build a political party to end all political parties (and not fighting). On the surface they seem to have pulled it off – at least the part about not staging a public spectacle. It remains to be seen whether they, as a collection of diverse progressive interests, have only succeeded in sweeping their difficulties under the carpet. There is no doubt the B.C. NDP is at a crossroads and will need to reinvent itself if they are to have electoral success. That will require new leadership and maybe they will get that from Craig Keating, five-term North Vancouver city councillor who was elected party president. “Top of mind for B.C. New Democrats right now is renewal,” Keating said in a

statement after the convention. I don’t think renewal will cut it. What are they going to renew? Wasn’t Adrian Dix about as traditional as an old-time NDPer you can find? Do they really want to renew that? They don’t need stern committed socialists, ever-ready to oppose any threat to any fringe interest in society. They need to be more than being against business and capitalism. They need to free themselves from the clutches of organized labour. In simply terms they need to be for something and be capable of effectively communicating that to voters. Patrick Hrushowy is a Cowichan writer and political consultant.

YOUR TURN

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A9

Should Canadians have constitutional processes to remove politicians at all government levels? “Yes. Some lose sight of the fact they’re elected to serve the needs of the people. They often have hidden agendas, such as Prime Minister Harper. We only see the person’s true agenda and personality after they’ve been in power for a number of years.” John Caldwell, North Cowichan

“Yes. I ‘m surprised we don’t have it now because, with just a 47% majority, the poor folks in Toronto are stuck with (Mayor Rob Ford) for another year.” Dwight Milford, Duncan

DATELINE: COWICHAN

1935: dances

1935: fires

by Ann Andersen

Friday, November 22, 2013

A spectacular fire in Duncan destroyed the United Church Hall, partially insured, and caused damage of about $500 to Mr. S. G. Redgrave’s garage repair shop next door, which was not insured.

1935: education

Fifty children were watched by an audience of 450 in a public dance revue of the pupils of Miss P. CarrHilton in the Agricultural Hall. It was the largest gathering ever for such an event, reported the Leader.

A representative meeting of parents and teachers of the area surrounding Cobble Hill organized a branch of the Parent-Teacher Federation at a meeting in Cobble Hill High School.

Cowichan Bay blooms anew as a rail port

Clip & Drive

efore Cowichan Bay burgeoned into an eclectic mix of industry, marinas, shops and restaurants, it was a peaceful backwater best known for incredible salmon fishing. In November 1935 came news that would shatter the quiet forever. The bay, announced Canadian National Railways, would become CNR’s main shipping point on Vancouver Island. Crews had already started repairs to the trestle spanning the Island Highway at Koksilah and over the flats to the sharp drop into deep water. At the end of it, a car ferry slip would replace the one abandoned at Patricia Bay, near Brentwood. The new port would handle the entire island’s outgoing railway cargo and much of the incoming, said CNR’s island superintendent N. S. Fraser. And great news for the Youbou mill: they would now ship through Cowichan Bay, cutting a full day off transportation time to Vancouver compared with the current Victoria route. Kapoor mill was expected to do the same. It was also rumoured that a lumber assembly plant might be built by the government if there was enough agitation for it, making it possible to load export lumber directly into deep sea vessels. With a spur track, Hillcrest and Mayo could also ship through Cowichan Bay, Fraser said

The B.C. boy’s hits include Trail in Life, It’s Friday, and Canadian Girls.

etting a tan before you go on that winter holiday won’t protect your skin from the intense tropical sun. Be sure to apply a good sunscreen product regularly. Be sure it’s a broad-spectrum lotion, with an SPF of at least 15 and protecting against both UVA and UVB sun rays. Also, don’t be stingy. Use enough each time. Treating thyroid disease with thyroid hormone first occurred back in 1891 when an English doctor treated a patient’s low thryoid condition with an extract of sheep thyroid gland. For the next half of the 20th century, pigs’ thyroid glands were the source. In 1949, the Glaxo company created a synthetic version of the hormone which is exactly the same as the human hormone. It is used most often today.

After the discovery of penicillin and sulfonamide in the 20s and 30s, the next five decades were sort of a golden age of antibiotic discovery. However, the 90s and 2000s were a wasteland of any new antibiotics. With increasing antibiotic resistance, the slow progress of antibiotic research is a concern for doctors.

On Saturday, he will be at Shady Grove at the Sussmans in Mill Bay. Johnson has been playing blues close to 40 years. “A master guitarist and vocalist, Bill has

developed his own brand of laid-back, soul-thumping blues,” event promotional material states. “Whether on his own, or performing with his band, his unique style and beautiful tone reveal a rare passion for the blues. “A Juno nomination in 2012, and four Maple Blues award nominations have earned

him a place among the countries best blues artists. From a slow burn to a blast of blues energy, his show is not to be missed.” Oceana Cato will open. Showtime is 7:30 p.m., Nov. 23. Seats are $15 and may be reserved through shadygrove.ca, or by calling 250-929-8226, and are priced at $15 per person.

eff Hyslop could almost feel how cold the characters felt in the Christmas classic It’s A Wonderful Life. It’s felt especially as George Bailey in the 1946 American drama contemplates suicide, staring into the icy waters of the town bridge in Bedford Falls, considering his past, while struggling with choices. “I could just imagine how cold that must have been,” said Hyslop. Hyslop watched the show for the first time at about 10-years-old. He’s now playing It’s A Wonderful Life’s Uncle Billy in the Chemainus Theatre Festival Inn’s version of the classic tale taking stage Nov. 22. “We’ve all landed in a nice, warm and cozy place. It feels like we’ve won the lottery,” Hyslop said of his fellow cast and the crew members. “It’s kind of a gift, isn’t it? It’s definitely a nice segue for me.” East Side Vancouver native Hyslop, who’s known as Phantom of the Opera to many thanks to 1,000 performances of the LloydWebber musical, has also played parts in Cabaret, Kiss of the Spider Woman, and A Chorus Line in London and on Broadway. And now he’s slipping into the very unstable — sometimes warm and fuzzy, other times miserable — boozer Uncle Billy’s shoes. “It’s an amazing roller coaster ride,” said Hyslop. “Uncle Billy is quite unstable. It’s very much the up and down of a roller coaster. But it does make for a very interesting journey.” Hyslop says he hasn’t had one person who’s not said to him upon hearing about his role, ‘You’re the guy who loses the money.’ “We’ve all lived there,” he said of Billy’s ups and downs and screw-ups. “The ups and downs can be very much the same as an actor’s.” Hsylop’s quite tickled to play a role for the first time in this classic adaptation on Chemainus Theatre’s stage. “One of the hooks for me was (original actress) Donna Reed,” he said, reverting back to his boyhood feelings on the gal who played George’s wife, Mary. “I had the biggest crush.” That, and fond memories of his family watching the show at an age when he still held hope in Santa and believed an angel could be real. But his innocent mind didn’t delve into It’s A Wonderful Life’s theme on suicide. “Instead, I remember drowning. Just the feeling of not being able to breathe,” he reflected.

*including All gAtes

Chemainus Theatre’s musical version is being directed and choreographed by Peter Jorgensen, who’s known at the Festival Inn for past Mural Town productions Fiddler on the Roof and Guys & Dolls. “The great thing about this holiday story is how easily it is enjoyed by people of all types,” says Jorgensen, who’s keeping the show close to its origins. “Of course, the musical is based on a legendary film with big boots to fill. That’s where the theatrical experience stands out. There’s nothing else as intense and satisfying as being in a room with the incredible actors living the tale right before your eyes.” Also appearing on stage will be David Leyshon (Guys & Dolls) as main man George Bailey, Alison MacDonald (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) as wife, Mary Bailey, Barbara Pollard (Emily Carr) as Mother Bailey, David Marr as guardian angel Clarence, Tim Dixon as sour businessman Henry Potter, Graham Coffeng as friend, Sam Wainwright, Gordon Roberts as Joseph and Gower the aging druggist, Becky Hachey as flirt Violet, and Damon Calderwood as Marty. Hyslop’s worked with several of the players, including director Jorgensen and actor Roberts as well as watched Marr and Pollard in action on stage. “It’s really a creamy cast, with every level of spectacular imaginable,” he boasted. “What we’re bringing is 100 years of acting experience to the stage.” It’s a Wonderful Life is popular among all generations due to its universal appeal. The plot of the musical remains true to the Frank Capra film of the same name, from the familiar “every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings,” through to the Christmas Eve escapades that take place in the town. The Chemainus production will feature more than a dozen Broadway-style melodies and songs led by musical director Nico Rhodes (previously in The Festival’s A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, Anything Goes, Tonight Piaf and The Tales of Hans Christian Andersen), and accompanied by musicians Alicia Murray and Marisha Devoin. Your ticket What: It’s A Wonderful Life Where: Chemainus Theatre Festival Inn When: Wednesday through Sundays, Nov. 22 to Dec. 23, with matinee and evening shows.

KRISTENSEN, Henning September 27, 1935 - November 15, 2013 It is with profound sadness and unbearable grief that I announce the  passing of my beloved Husband, friend and partner, Henning.  Henning is survived by his beloved wife Monica, his two Sisters Lydia Nicolaisen and Johanna Christensen and numerous nieces and nephews in Denmark.  Family in Canada and an abundance of true and abiding friends - he was wellloved and will be truly missed by all. Henning was one of the gentlest, kindest, most warm hearted souls that walked the face of the earth.  He loved life - he loved his life and was full of fun.  He was a man of many skills and talents, a man of  honesty and integrity accepting people for who they were.  After a long successful career in the Automotive Industry shortly after moving to the Cowichan Valley Henning opened his own shop Dancia Motors  specializing in Volvo repair which he successfully ran with the help of his Wife for 17 years. His customers soon became friends, he loved each and everyone of them and cared for them like they were family. My special thanks to Dr. Pascoe, Dr. Layher, Dr. Fretz, Dr. Bozinovski and the Staff at the Royal Jubilee Cardiac Care Unit in Victoria for the excellent care Henning received.  Also thank you to the 911 Operator, the Ambulance Attendants, and each and everyone of the  amazing medical staff at CDH who did everything in their power to save my beloved Henning and for their compassion and understanding. At Henning’s request there will be no service.  In memory of Henning  donations may be made to the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation.

Save the Bread Van!

Did you know that the Cowichan Food Connection, which operates the Bread Van, relies on public donations to FUEL the Van? Our fuel bill alone is over $2000/month and many months we do not have the necessary funds & the bills are piling up. Every week we deliver in upwards of 3000 loaves of bread and baked goods throughout the Cowichan Valley. It is all donated to people who would otherwise go hungry (schools, Food Banks, Seniors Centres, & many more). Go to http:// cowichanfoodconnection.com to find out how you can help or contact the secretary, Kim Sayer at 250-856-0046 for more information.

Three sets: Campbell River takes Island volleyball title after a 15-11 decision

Last chance: Provincial volleyball hangs in the balance

News Leader Pictorial

O

ne more chance. Brentwood College’s bid to make the provincial AA senior girls’ volleyball tournament still has life. Brentwood placed third following the Island tournament on its home court last Friday and Saturday and heads into a four-team wild card tournament Friday for a provincial berth. Brentwood, St. Pat’s of Vancouver, M.E.I. of the Fraser Valley and Princess Margaret of the Okanagan will be vying for one available place. It’s winnertake-all. “It’s a tough wildcard,’’ said Brentwood coach Jill Fougner. But she’s happy her young team is still playing, with a chance to be among the province’s elite. As expected, Brentwood’s fate in the Island tournament came down to a semifinal clash with Cedar. After being swept by Cedar in the North Island playoffs, Brentwood came into the match with more determination and

looking for the upset. After losing the first two sets 12-25, 22-25, Brentwood got it going in the third set of the bestof-five to win 25-18. But there was no magical comeback in the offing, as Cedar closed out the match with a 25-22 victory. “We should have gone to five,’’ said Fougner. “It’s just the same thing. We’ve been battling a little bit of inexperience.’’ Fougner had her players well-prepared for a best-of-five challenge instead of the bestof-three they faced in the North Island final. “Tactically, it’s a bit of a different game,’’ she said. “The girls gave it a good shot, but came up a little short.’’ Brentwood went on to take the bronze medal in convincing fashion over Pacific Christian of Victoria 25-8, 25-16, 25-13. The round robin featured a 25-16, 25-8 victory over John Barsby and 25-8, 25-12 rout of Gulf Islands, leading into a big clash with Lambrick Park. Brentwood held its own against the provincial powerhouse, losing 20-25, 22-25, to finish second in the pool.

D Andrew Leong

Hands-on approach is taken by Rachel Jerome of Brentwood College, as she’s challenged by Dana Murray of John Barsby at the net in the opening match last Friday in the Island AA senior girls’ volleyball championship. Brentwood won 25-18, 25-9. “That was a really good match for us,’’ said Fougner. Brentwood went into the quarterfinal round against Woodlands and prevailed in two straight sets 25-16, 25-14. That set the stage for the semifinal with Cedar where Brent-

wood had a chance to lock up a provincial spot, but couldn’t quite get it done and now has to go about it the hard way. Lambrick secured the Island title with a 25-16, 25-15, 25-23 sweep of Cedar in the final match.

uncan Christian School Chargers finished a close second to Campbell River Christian in the Island A senior girls’ volleyball championships at Lake Cowichan. DCS won the first set over Campbell River in the final 25-20. But Campbell River forced an extra set with a 25-21 triumph. The deciding match was a dandy, with Campbell River leading 8-7 when the teams switched sides at the midway point. Campbell River went on to take it 15-11. Despite the loss, Danielle Groenendijk of DCS was the MVP and teammate Becky Bazinet earned an Island All-Star award. In round robin play, DCS swept to four straight wins by defeating Chemainus 25-18, 25-22, Dwight 25-6, 25-5, Ucluelet 25-14, 25-20 and Nanaimo Christian 25-12, 25-11. The DCS girls played well as a team throughout the round robin. Becky and Brenna Bazinet, Groenendijk and Victoria Neufeld were all strong while Juliet King made a couple of big kills. The playoffs started with a 25-8, 25-6 DCS victory over Port Hardy, as Becky Bazinet and Sam Davison exhibited strong serving in set one and Brenna Bazinet in set two. DCS won its semifinal match over Queen Margaret’s School 25-17, 26-24. It was a very tight second set, but DCS managed to prevent going to a third. QMS eventually placed third, with Lake Cowichan fourth, Ucluelet fifth, Chemainus sixth, Nanaimo Christian and Port Hardy in seventh and Dwight ninth. DCS hosts the girls’ A provincials, starting Thursday.

Andrew Leong

Nifty move is made on Dale Grimston of Velox by Cowichan’s Russell Robertson during First Division men’s rugby game.

he injury situation is getting rather serious for Cowichan Rugby Club’s First Division men. “We have 10 starters, including myself, injured,’’ noted Piggies’ team member Andrew Gudmundseth, who, along with Peter Budina, will be out until the spring. Cowichan was tied for first place with Velox, but lost last weekend’s battle of the giants 27-3. The game was actually closer than the score indicated. Meanwhile, the Cowichan U18 girls continue to make mincemeat of opponents. They won their latest game 67-0 over the Castaways Wanderers.

“We used a number of tactics which exposed CW’s youth and inexperience,’’ noted coach Brad Skene. “They were stubborn in defence and scrambled well, but our organization and cohesion at important points of the game was just too much for them. “At times, we got away from the game plan and at times our ball control was too loose, but generally we were impressed with the actions and efforts of the team.’’ Adrienne Saari and Katrina Florez led the scoring with three tries each. Darien Hobday (2), Jenn Lemon and Brooklyn Navarrete added tries while Avi Sharabi kicked five conversions and Alison Franks booted another. Cowichan is going for the B.C. title this weekend against Abbotsford.

Caps drop their sixth straight with a 5-2 loss in Victoria Wednesday

AthLetiCS

The Cowichan Valley Capitals lost their sixth straight B.C. Hockey League game Wednesday night, falling 5-2 to the Grizzlies at Victoria’s Bear Mountain Arena. The Caps were a game above .500 when the skid started and are now 11-16-1 on the season.

Coach Bob Beatty isn’t about to make any excuses, but injuries have been a huge factor. Several players are still out of the lineup. The Caps got the jump on the Grizzlies with a goal by Kyle Horsman and only trailed 3-2 late in the second

period after Jesse Neher, pictured, scored. Neher also assisted on Horsman’s goal. The Caps have a more favourable schedule from now till Christmas with numerous home games. They play a rematch with Victoria Friday at 7 p.m. at Cowichan Arena.

he stakes were high for both the Cowichan Secondary Thunderbirds and the Frances Kelsey Breakers heading into the provincial senior girls’ AAA high school field hockey championships as two of the tournament’s top-rated teams. No. 1-ranked Cowichan eventually settled for fourth place after six games over three days at Burnaby Lake and one costly loss put the Breakers into the bottom half of the draw, but they scrambled back to finish ninth. Cowichan started strong in pool play by whitewashing Churchill and then Gleneagle 3-0, but was held to a 1-1 tie by West Vancouver. The tie didn’t affect the standings and Cowichan went to the quarterfinals as the top team in its pool against Charles Best and won 1-0. What Cowichan hadn’t counted on was a Handsworth loss to Heritage Woods in pool play. That set up a battle of the titans in the semifinals between Cowichan and Handsworth that many thought would have been the final match-up. The game was a tight battle despite the final score that showed Handsworth on the right side of a 4-0 decision. Handsworth went on to claim the provincial title with a 2-0 victory over South Delta while Cowichan dropped the third-place game to Heritage Woods in a shootout after the teams tied 2-2 during regulation.

NEW YEAR ACT NOW! BETTER HEARING Who?

Signs of Hearing Loss Self-Check ✤ Do people sound like they are mumbling? ✤ Do you find it hard to understand in meetings, restaurants and groups? ✤ Are you turning up the volume on the TV or radio? ✤ Are your social activities limited because it is difficult to hear clearly? ✤ Are friends and family repeating themselves?

If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, it is likely time to schedule a hearing assessment.

At Act Hearing and Audiology, you will be seen by the owner, Leslie Peterson, a registered Audiologist with twenty years’ experience. An audiologist is a professional with a Masters’ or Doctorate degree in Audiology, who’s expertise includes the prevention, identification, assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of auditory disorders.

What is new in hearing aid technology?

Hearing impaired individuals have a wide array of choices and options available to them. These include the following features: hearing aids that are directional and provide better performance in groups and noisy places, and Bluetooth compatibility to connect with other audio devices including televisions and telephones. In addition, one leading manufacturer has produced optional programming to assist those suffering from tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Leslie will work with you to select the most appropriate options for your lifestyle and hearing issues.

Where do I start?

The first step is a complete hearing assessment. From there Leslie will explain the results of the testing with you and make recommendations based on these results. This may include a referral to your primary care physician, future testing or a trial with hearing instruments.

When is the right time to get started?

If you suspect you have a hearing impairment, or if friends and family have commented on your hearing ability, the time to get started is now. It is ideal to detect and address a hearing impairment early, to remain engaged and enjoying the things you love to do. In addition, individuals who begin the process earlier, often find it easier to adjust to amplification.

Leslie Peterson,

Registered Audiologist Leslie Peterson, Owner M.A., Aud(C) Registered Audiologist Owner

Why should I improve my hearing?

We now know there are many other side effects of hearing loss including impact on career, frustration, feelings of isolation, withdrawal from social activities and anxiety. Addressing and treating hearing loss has been shown to have a positive impact on well-being, both physically and emotionally. There is no better time to ACT!

Welcome to the driver’s seat

The S3 really is the sweet spot for drivers that want to have extra power but with a very compliant and comfortable ride. Zack Spencer

Audi’s road ahead paved with more than good intentions 2014 Audi A3 Cabriolet/S3 MONACO: Over the next 12 months or so, consumers are going to be treated to an onslaught of new entries into the premium market. Not to worry, the next wave of German sedans and convertibles are of a more affordable nature. Recently Mercedes Benz introduced their all-new CLA 250 at an eye-popping price of just $34,000 for a sleek and sexy sedan. Next year we will see the introduction of BMW’s new 1-series and 2-Series sedans, coupes and convertibles. Audi has been ahead of the curve as they helped pioneer this entry-level segment with the original, the A3 sportback, sold in Canada for years. The all-new Audi A3 sedan will arrive in March of 2014 and the convertible and more powerful S3 sedan will arrive in the fall of 2014. This week I had a chance to drive both the convertible and S3 in Monte Carlo, a full year ahead of their introduction here. Audi is one of the fastest growing premium brands and a big part of that is the variety of cars they offer. Unfortunately, we will no longer get the sportback, but the fact we get the rest of the line of A3s is exciting for buyers. Looks The A3 is built off a shared platform with VW called MQB. This platform was a significant investment for the VW group as it is lighter, bigger and stronger than the last Golf platform and provides a sturdy basis for the A3 Cabrio and S3. The new Cabriolet is 60kg lighter than the outgoing European model, yet the wheelbase is longer and the interior room and trunk more ample. It could be argued that Audi is building some of the most attractive cars these days and these smaller products still convey the same sense of power and solidity that the bigger products portray. The S3 is especially forceful with a 15mm lower stance than the A3 sedan. The air intakes are bigger with more detail; the side mirrors are highlighted with brushed aluminum; and the rear of the car looks more masculine thanks to chunky exhaust tips. The

Why women can negotiate a better car deal For many people, buying a car is a stressful process. Something worse than going to the dentist or for women, a Brazilian waxing. Ouch. It can be a lengthy one too. Furthermore, it doesn’t always start by going from dealership to dealership. In fact, most people have access to the Internet, so they’re doing their research beforehand, prior to even leaving their home and finding themselves on a dealer lot, or with glossy brochures in hand. They look at various vehicle reviews, flip through newspapers (like the one you’re reading now) and ask other car owner’s opinions. When they get to the dealership, that’s when it becomes real. You take the car for a test drive, fall in love with it or walk away from it. When you find “the one” then comes the time to sign on the dotted line. But before you seal the deal, it’s time to negotiate, unless you’re happy with the price given. For women, this can be an even more intimidating process. Getting through the dealer’s door is just the first hurdle they feel they have to overcome. But for Vijay Jeyapalan, of Unhaggle (www.unhaggle.com), which helps Canadian car buyers get the best price on their new car by getting dealers to compete to offer the lowest price – he’d argue that women are better negotiators than men; an idea that challenges societal norms when it comes to car buying. Jeyapalan says, “Before stepping into the showroom or test-driving a vehicle, most women are recognized to have done their homework and pre-purchase preparations. This advantage allows them to properly assess what they want upon arrival and ask the necessary questions to advance the car buying process.”

in a hurry to buy right then and there. “Many are convinced that the forceful tactics men use The image of during negotiations a damsel lost in a are actually working against them in showroom, if it ever car buying situaactually existed, is tions. Men tend to no longer something focus on status and salespeople will see – act upon superiority, which is a poor way Vijay Jeyapalan of negotiating. “While the man says, Alexandra Straub ‘Take it or leave it,’ the woman might be more collaborative and willing to compromise— thus making them better negotiators. Listening is the key, not aggression and intimidation.” He goes on to say that, “Women understand that a common ground is usually the best platform for a fair negotiation. Empathy plays a large role in that regards. Being able to view the situation from another person’s perspective doesn’t necessarily create an advantage, but it does allow the person to understand why they aren’t getting the upper hand.” Statistics show that more women are making car purchases that ever before. Granted they might not be experts when they walk in the door, but they generally know what they want. “The image of a damsel lost in a showroom, if it ever actually existed, is no longer something salespeople will see.”

Driving to cut

Big Oil profits They should just call the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid Sedan the Gas Miser. The car is here for market testing right now but surely, it will see production next year and arrive in dealerships later in the year. And when it does sell your shares in Big Oil. It only sips gas by the spoonful; how else do you account for an easily achievable 4.1 L/100km combined city/highway fuel economy rating? Drive gently around town and you can purr along in all-electric mode for between 20 and 28 kms depending on road conditions. You won’t achieve that all at once, unless it’s the dead of night on a flat road, without any other traffic and green lights all the way. However, it is estimated that if you achieve that 20plus all-electric ride during

a 100 km journey, the power unit will consume electricity/gasoline at an equivalency of around 1.6 L/100km. In truth, it’s hard to put a real life meaning into that number but it is useful when comparing with other similarly equipped cars.

But when you look at that number and the low gas/hybrid combined fuel performance, which enables you to journey 800 kilometres on one tank, it does plant the notion in one’s head that plug-in hybrids are the way to go for a while before we reach hydrogen fuel cell nirvana. The car is powered by Honda’s first two-motor hybrid system, and uses a new, delightfully named, Earth Dreams 2.0 litre i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine producing 137 horsepower, teamed with a powerful 124-kilowatt (kW) electric motor. Electric driving is supported by a 6.7 kilowatt-hour (kWh) lithium-ion (Li-Ion) battery, and total system output is 196 horsepower. If your eyes glazed over at the obligatory statement of power unit specifications, join the club! Fuel economy

interests me more. Like every other car with green aspirations that I have driven, it coaxed me into a little competition with myself every time out to achieve maximum fuel efficiency. It’s fun to select EV mode and pull away in the morning in silence, operating as a pure electric vehicle. Even in stop and go traffic, it works well, the regenerative braking keeps topping up the battery. As the speedo creeps up the gas engine kicks in quietly

A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase.

Recalls on the 2010 to 2012 Chevrolet Camaro: 2012 - The primary stage of the driver’s airbag may not deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted). Dealers will replace the steering wheel airbag coil. 2010 – On vehicles equipped with a V8 engine, the positive battery cable may contact the starter motor housing, which could cause chafe damage to the cable insulation. This could create an electrical short, which can result in a no start condition, cause the engine to stall without the ability to restart, or cause an engine compartment fire. Dealers will reroute the positive battery cable to ensure adequate clearance.

HEART OF COWICHAN

A Christmas Kick Off in Downtown Duncan By Jen Coyle With the chilly, wet and wintery weather we all look to other sources for warmth and comfort – a crackling fire, a warm drink, a hug from a loved one, or perhaps a friendly greeting on the street from a familiar face. Downtown Duncan is where this community gets together. Gather with friends, family, neighbours and visitors for a Kick-Off to launch a month of rediscovering shopping opportunities in a variety of independently owned stores, some of which have graced our streets for years, and others new to the downtown. Join us next Friday, November 29th, for our annual Christmas Kick off Event. This night is for exploring and having fun on a night when many of our retail businesses stay open late.

Parents, grandparents, children and lovers of Yuletide joy all have reason to celebrate that our Downtown businesses create a downtown Christmas launch so appealing, it makes an ‘allages’ outing both enchanting and unforgettable. Park your car, walk into town and enter into a familiar and comforting atmosphere where tree-lined streets sparkle and beautifully decorated holiday windows are invitingly aglow. Keep your eyes out for the cleverly disguised and individually named, ‘Hamster’ mascot, in many of the gorgeous displays all over downtown, so artfully created by the shop owners and their talented staff. There’s a chance to win $100 in Downtown Dollars, by completing the list of randomly chosen mascot participants, on our Kick Off programs to try and find, the night of! You’ll find those and a ballot box at our info tent in City Square, with entry slips to vote for your favourite Christmas windows. Of course, browsing in any of our wonderful, independently owned shops is the perfect way to shake off the chill. Read books, look at wonderful gift ideas, play with toys…. it’s all a delight. As holiday cheer abounds, music will fill the air with Seasonal Songs and familiar Christmas Carols from our Community Stage by Just Jakes reminding us of times past, and gifting Jakes, the young a wonderful opportunity to hear live classic instrumentals and school choirs.

Experience Downtown Duncan

HEART OF COWICHAN

Wafting through the air will be another familiar seasonal aroma of chestnuts roasting on a fire. Follow your nose to find the chestnut barrels throughout the downtown, offering complimentary bags of these traditional tasty tidbits. While munching away on hot chestnuts, watch in delight as children intuitively move to the musical stylings of The Smiley Family Band on City Square Stage & to hip hop shake it up, there’ll be another highly entertaining local band; Subterranean! Not to be forgotten is the incredibly popular Hay Ride. Every year Providence Farm provides a wagon for plenty of fun & hilarity as you take a ride around town spreading even more Christmas cheer and laughter! While you’re in City Square be sure to explore the collection of Christmas trees that have been donated and decorated by local businesses and service organizations in a desire to add their community presence and a little sparkle at this time of year. If you have to wait in the cold, why not warm your insides both figuratively and literally with homemade goodies and delicious hot beverages from our local non-profit fundraising groups, while you and your family await the dramatic entrance of Santa as he arrives on the roof at City Hall at 6:30 p.m. Kids won’t want to miss their chance to sit with Santa afterwards and tell him their most magical Christmas wishes! It doesn’t matter where you are downtown, the best seats in the house will be in the Square for what is sure to be a crowd pleasing display of explosive light and colour, with our annual fireworks display following Santa’s lighting of the tree. This wonderful community event is sponsored by the Merchants of Downtown Duncan. It’s a downtown that is anything but ordinary!

Christmas Past Comes Alive! at the Museum The Cowichan Valley Museum is celebrating the holiday season with their 8th Annual Christmas Past Comes Alive! Event, from 5:30 pm to 7:45 pm, during Duncan’s Christmas Kick Off. The magic of the past is brought to life with Historical Society members in ‘living history’ displays.  They will be donned in pioneer costumes, and ensconced throughout the museum, as they demonstrate the traditions of an old-fashioned Christmas.   ‘Mrs. Castley’ will be concocting a Christmas pudding, and she might invite you to give it a stir for good luck, but make sure you stir it
