pickup truck driver is lucky to be alive after colliding with a freight train near Chemainus this morning. Chemainus firefighters used the Jaws of Life at about 9:15 a.m. to cut the driver’s-side door off the white Chevy hit at an uncontrolled Ashcroft Road crossing, a police release explains. Firefighters removed the driver who had no passengers aboard, said News Leader Pictorial lensman Andrew Leong. The driver was transported to hospital, and treated for minor injuries, RCMP say. The driver has been charged with failure to stop at a railway crossing, the cops say. Cpl. Jon Stuart says the truck failed to stop at the railway-crossing stop sign. “The train engineer was blowing the horn, and saw that although the truck stopped in time, it was still on the tracks and was then struck by the train. “The train was not traveling very fast, but the impact knocked the truck from the roadway, causing severe damage. The train stopped and remained at scene for police,” his release states.

They also got the opportunity to snap some photos while Ashton and the boys worked their magic for the promotional pictures. “He was extremely personable. He was making jokes,” Fabio said of Bieksa. “He said at one point, ‘This kid’s going to hit me,’ when photographers told Ashton to have a serious face in the photo. “And Ashton did really great. He handled it well,” Fabio said noting the young Cowichan Valley Novice 4 hockey player had never done anything like it. Fabio said Jeans Day organizers told Madeline and Ashton they can act as program ‘Champions’ and collect money on behalf of their school.

Provincial dirty-dirt hearings set for spring in Victoria

UP FRONT

Issues about dumping dirty-dirt near Shawnigan Lake will be unearthed in Victoria during four weeks of public hearings. Environmental Appeal Board chairman Alan Andison has announced the hearing dates will be March 3 to 7, March 10 to 14, March 24 to 28, and March 31 to April 4, 2014. The hearings concern the province’s permit to

South island Aggregates Ltd. allowing treatment of five million tonnes of fuel-contaminated soil in SIA’s treatment quarry on Stebbings Road. Appellants to be heard by the EAB include the Shawnigan Residents Association, represented by lawyers Sean Hern and Robert Anderson; the Cowichan Valley Regional District; John and Lois Hayes; and Ronald Witherspoon and Richard

Cowichan News Leader Pictorial A3 Sanders who oppose SIA’s permit. A lawyer with the Cox Taylor firm will represent SIA. SRA’s release says some 35 witnesses could be called during hearings. The EAB has ruled appellants must submit documents by Jan. 30. SIA must deliver all of its material no later than Feb. 17, 2014 to the appellants.

approved in the future,” said CVRHD Chairman Rob Hutchins. A new hospital for the Cowichan Valley would require regional and provincial government approval. At this time, no approvals or funding are in place. Should the long-term strategy for a new hospital eventually be approved and funded, the land acquired by the CVRHD would be part of its 40% contribution to the cost of a new hospital. An expression of interest process will take place later this year inviting landowners to submit potential sites. Constructing a new hospital would be the single largest public expenditure ever undertaken in the Cowichan Valley Regional District. Local taxpayers will pay 40% of a project expected to cost in excess of $300 million. The CVRD started saving money four years ago. “We have endeavoured to make sure we are ready if and when the Ministry of Health says ‘we have funding to help you

o you care where the new Cowichan District Hospital is located? If you do, you may want to be at one of four public meetings scheduled this week and next around the valley. The Cowichan Communities Health Network is hosting a forum on the topic designed to update the community on the hospital replacement process. It will give local residents a chance to share feedback about properties they think could be a good fit. Acquiring a suitable site for a new hospital is just one step in a process that remains in the very early stages, according to a press release from the Cowichan Valley Regional Hospital District. “The CVRHD wants to do its part to ensure that the right piece of property is available should a hospital project be

build a new hospital,’” said Hutchins. “We haven’t got a new hospital yet; this is just one more step toward a new hospital that we desperately need.” Each forum will include a presentation about the history of CDH, as well as panel presentations about what is a community hospital, day-to-day operations and master site planning, and a Q&A session. The forums are scheduled for: • Nov. 30, 10 a.m. to noon at the Ladysmith Seniors Centre, 630 Second Ave., Ladysmith • Nov. 30, 2 to 4 p.m.. Cowichan Lake Arena 311 South Shore Rd, Lake Cowichan • Dec. 7, 10 a.m. to noon, Kerry Park Arena, 1035 Shawnigan Mill Bay Rd, Mill Bay • Dec. 7, 2 to 4 p.m., VIU Cowichan Campus, 2011 University Way, Duncan For more information, contact Cindy Lise at 250-709-5062 or cindylisecchn@ shaw.ca.

fficials with the Cowichan District Hospital have essentially fast-tracked the new fast track emergency room service. According to CDH site director Peter Fahey, the hospital’s new program to speed up wait times went live yesterday. “I’m sure there will be a few speed bumps in the next couple weeks to sort through,” said Fahey Wednesday before the lower acuity designated patient area was launched. “This is something I presented back in last December and it’s also something I thought needed to get moving faster,” Fahey said, noting wait times on capital project applications didn’t fit the bill for what he had in mind. So for the time being, Island Health is covering the $50,000 cost of creating the service, which includes hiring three new staffers and the addition of some minor medical equipment. Meanwhile, the Cowichan District Hospital Foundation is fundraising $50,000 to pay back Island Health. The new space, located within the existing ER, will provide quicker, high-quality response service, reduce congestion in the ER for all patients, enhance the ER experience, and improve staffing in the ER and seclusion rooms. “The emergency room ER is perpetually crowded with longer wait times as more and more ER patients are arriving at CDH — caused primarily by the region’s growing population, and, in the past 18 months, with the sudden closure of 50% of Duncan’s after-hours clinics and patients coming from Lake Cowichan,” stated a foundation press release. “The valuable addition of the Fast Track unit to CDH ER will allow the facility and staff the resources to safely and efficiently care for the unfortunate lower acuity but equally important patients that currently may sit for numerous hours in the ER waiting room that wait even to be seen,” Fahey added. And so far, the community is welcoming this addition with open arms. “It’s very exciting to see how the community has responded to this,” past foundation chair Meryle Hilberry said. “I think it’s because many of us have all spent several hours in the ER.” Every year the foundation has an appeal fundraiser. This year it’s being dedicated to the Fast Track unit. “So essentially, if we can raise it all through our mail out program, we’d be very happy,” said Hilberry. And if need be, money can also be raised through the foundation’s annual dinner auction gala and golf tournament.

Victoria. She warned some models are bureaucratically sketchy; others work well. Cowichan’s cultural committee would boast the best ideas, infused with input from the Cowichan Valley Arts Council, citizens, artists and groups. Schrader also visualized CVRD arts awards, an arts and culture wall of fame, and friendly ears for folks’ ideas. Data backing the committee concept is being charted on the arts council’s cultural map (cowichanculture.ca), explained CVAC’s Judy Brayden. Tenor Ted Rhodes of the Cowichan Symphony Society, explained “the annual cost of a coffee and doughnut from everyone in the valley” would provide tons of seed money for arts groups foundering with box office sales. Paul Fletcher doubted arts funding could come from a belt-tightened CVRD. Bob Johns suggested raising arts money from private sources. Rhodes suggested family bequeaths. Gail Robertson feared a bland world without the arts. Joyce Scott was angry about federal spending on prisons and fighter jets, while the arts begs. “If we support the little people, we’ll have fewer people in our prisons.”

itching Cowichan’s first arts-and-culture committee — with an eye toward tax funding — will wait until January. Wednesday’s regional services committee backed Cobble Hill Director Gerry Giles’ motion to refer debate about an arts committee. It would be mulled under a new chairperson, being decided in six weeks. Mike Walker, regional services’ current chairman, said Giles’ motion allows more time for directors to learn about and digest the artscommittee concept. “There’s lots of work to put into that (arts) committee.” Walker was aware the funding question could go to referendum, perhaps with other referenda, during fall’s civic election. “The fear is having too many referendums on the ballot, and people saying ‘To hell with it.’” Still, Kirsten Schrader, Cowichan’s arts-and-culture manager, wants formal recognition of — and public money for — Warm Land’s web of artists and cultural groups. “I want to come back with a strong presentation when there’s a new chairperson.

She plans a power-point show on how the committee would use public funds to fertilize — and draw tourists to — Cowichan’s long string of struggling artists, musicians, actors, poets, film makers, youths, museums and festivals. Individuals and groups would apply for arts committee grants, vetted through a results-oriented panel. Schrader cited five cultural models spanning the Cariboo, Prince George, Nanaimo, Comox, and

School board offices bound for Duncan El Its Somenos for maintenance and transportation: as SD79 starts the process of selling current office complex site and moving to vacant schools

he process has begun that will eventually lead to School District 79 selling the board offices on Beverly Street and dispensing with excess properties. “It’s kind of like school closures where you announce you’re going through something,’’ said SD79 superintendent Joe Rhodes. The process is expected to take about eight months. The game plan is to move maintenance and transportation to the vacated Somenos Elementary School site while finance, human resources and administration would go to Duncan Elementary. That way, the district would be utilizing sites closed during school reshuffling earlier this year. At the same time, the Yount facility in Youbou, the old Ecole Mill Bay Elementary and Charles Hoey sites are being declared surplus to district needs, said Rhodes, and will be sold. “All things going well, we’re hoping over next summer we’ll be able to move along,’’ he said. The school board office is considered an attractive site and could generate plenty of interest. “This property could be very

School District 79 superintendent Joe Rhodes says a public process taking up to eight months will have to be followed before the district can move ahead with its latest facilities plan. valuable and important for the community,’’ said Rhodes. The Vancouver Island Health Authority and North Cowichan/ Duncan RCMP have designs on the property that could materialize, among others. Advertisements will be placed in local papers to announce the procedure for the sale of the properties. Rhodes said it won’t be a big deal

to split the current school district headquarters onto two sites. “If you look at Victoria and Nanaimo, they’ve converted old schools into board offices. They’re quite stately and attractive. “Duncan El is a heritage site. I don’t think we’d ever be able to sell it. We’d put it to some use.’’ It will be necessary to do some preliminary planning at Duncan El to see if there’s sufficient square footage. “We’re having someone take a look and see if logistically it fits,’’ said Rhodes. There are potential advantages of having the transportation and maintenance facility located so close to the Municipality of North Cowichan office and the possibility of sharing some resources. “That’s certainly something we’re receptive to,’’ said Rhodes. Public meetings will be held before the other properties are sold. “We’ll probably go out to the Lake for that property,’’ said Rhodes of the Yount meeting. If it’s necessary to have a meeting in the south end regarding Ecole Mill Bay, that will transpire as well, Rhodes said. The Charles Hoey facility’s vacancy would stem from a move of the adult education component to Duncan Elementary.

A Message from Peter Baljet As many of you know, I have been the General Motors dealer in Duncan since 1987. In March of this year, after 26 years in the Cowichan Valley, I sold the dealership to Auto Canada. If you’ve been wondering where to find me now, I spend most of my days at Discovery Honda, where I have been the Dealer Principal since 2009. I am still selling cars, but now the new ones are Hondas!

submitted

Ecole Mount Prevost Elementary students are getting excited about a proposal put before Aviva for a playground and community project at the school becoming a reality.

At Discovery Honda, we have a great selection of all brands of used vehicles and if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we’ll find it! Regardless of what you drive, our qualified technicians service all brands of cars and would welcome the opportunity to provide you with the outstanding customer service you have come to expect from my staff. I would like to invite my friends, past and future customers to drop in and see me anytime at Discovery Honda. I can be reached at 250-748-5814. OPEN: MON.-FRI. 8-6. SAT. 8-6.

Ecole Mount Prevost gears up for next round of Aviva votes for cash Starts Dec. 2: Reaching the finals the aim to boost funding effort for playground and community space

T

he Aviva Community Fund project pitch is going to start heating up again for Ecole Mount Prevost Elementary School next week. Mount Prevost’s innovative playground and community space concept received enough votes previously to make the semifinal round. Voting starts Dec. 2 and runs until Dec. 11 for that round. “In this final voting round, 90 projects — 30 large, 30 medium and 30 small — will be competing for 30 finalists spots — 10 large, 10 medium, 10 small,’’ noted Mona Kaiser of the Ecole Mount Prevost Parent Advisory Committee. Prevost’s application is in the large

category for projects ranging from $100,000 to $150,000. “All 30 finalists receive $5,000 and an Aviva panel of judges will determine how the rest of the $1,000,000 is to be divided up among the finalists,’’ explained Kaiser. “Given that we have an idea that meets all the criteria the Aviva judges are looking for, we feel that if we can make it through the semifinals to the finals, we have a pretty good chance of making it right to the top.’’ The Prevost group added another video to its proposal since the end of the last qualifying round. Kindergarten teacher Deborah Smith came up with an innovative idea to fit the bill. “I have come up with a ‘flash mobesque’ idea to a simple patterned dance,’’ she explained. People of all ages represented the multi-generational proposal for the new playground. Once the voting period starts Monday, people can log on to avivacommunityfund.org to register a vote for the Prevost project.

I’ve been writing about cars for over 25 years and I’m a long-term member of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC). My auto background is mainly in the service side of the industry as I’ve always had a keen interest in knowing how things work. Especially those oily, greasy parts that make the wheels go around.   My first car was an early sixties Triumph Herald Coupe (web example photo) that was traded-in to a dealership where I worked as an apprentice auto mechanic, back in Dublin, Ireland. It spent more time off the road, being repaired, than on the road, during my time as its owner. A Herald had the same chassis and a similar powertrain as the much nicer looking Triumph Spitfire, which was sold in North America. At the BC Automobile Association I initially worked as a mobile Vehicle Inspector in the Vehicle Inspection Service. The vehicle was an AMC Gremlin and it was painted to look like a cut-away or skeleton view of the car’s mechanical bits. A small car with a big gas-guzzling engine, a Gremlin was an odd choice of vehicle for that job and the paint job just added to its weirdness, yet I grew to like it.      Currently I enjoy serving on the AJAC Technology Awards panel and have also been involved in the promotion of trade skills training for young people in BC. When time permits, I still like to get my hands dirty and give my son a helping hand with, his pride and joy, a 1966 Ford Thunderbird coupe. bob.mchugh@drivewaybc.ca

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Driveway goes Hollywood!

Zack Spencer reveals what turned his head week with a visit to the glitzy 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show, Alexandra Straub looks at what’s cool, Bob McHugh goes green and Keith Morgan sneaks a peek at a racy compact concept. Check out the full script at drivewayBC.ca

LA-LA Land auto extravaganza LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Auto Show is full of eye-popping sights and some even include cars! It’s not difficult to have your head turned but it is a challenge to pick one’s top picks but I’m for the challenge. Nissan GT-R Nismo Nissan stole the show with not only one of the fastest cars in the world but the fastest man in the world. Olympic gold medalist and world record holder Usain Bolt was on hand as Nissan’s Director of Excitement. Usain was clearly taken with the new GT-R Nismo, there were also promises to get him one to replace his gold coloured GT-R. Power has been pumped up to 600hp taking this new Nismo version to 100 km/h in just two seconds. Look for the new GT-R in the spring of 2014. I suspect Usain will get his a bit earlier. Chevrolet Colorado The mid-size pickup truck market has been all but abandoned by the domestic automakers over the last few years leaving this category entirely to Toyota and Nissan with the Tacoma and Frontier trucks. Wait until next year and the choice will include the all-new Colorado from Chevrolet. Building off the success of the all-new full-size Silverado, the engineers have taken the same approach to this new truck. On the economy front, eventually there will be three engines to choose from. Out of gate, there is the base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or a 3.6L V6. Subaru WRX Fans of the Subaru WRX will be very excited about the arrival of an all-new car but maybe a bit disappointed that this production model

doesn’t look very much little the sleek and sexy concept that was unveiled earlier this year. It should prove to be a capable car thanks to an all-new direct injection 2.0L 4-cylinder putting out 268hp and matched to the first 6-speed in the WRX. Subaru Legacy Concept A head Zack Spencer turning design that my sources tell me looks a lot like the production car. The metallic, almost chrome looking paint, certainly helps to make the car pop but the bold front grille and macho stance could very well be included in the final version. Lincoln MKC Lincoln has a long and distinguished history as an American premium brand but over the last few decades, it has been an extension of existing Ford products using different badging and trim. There is now a long-term plan to resurrect the Lincoln brand with all-new vehicle that use some Ford components but are developed separately from the main Ford line of products. The compact crossover MKC shares a platform with the Ford Escape but has been designed and engineered to be a very different car. The design, other than the trademark Lincoln grille is very European and the back wrap-around hatch is maybe Audi-inspired. Standard in Canada will be all-wheel-drive and adaptive suspension, matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

BMW 4 Series Cabriolet BMW has changed its naming: the 3 Series is now the sedan only while the coupe and convertible version are now called 4 Series. The all-new cabriolet is wider and features a new three-piece retractable hardtop and for the first time X-Drive AWD is now available on the convertible models. Interior refinements include a new neck warmer to that blows a steady stream of warm air on the front passengers neck and shoulders, helping to elongate the convertible season. Porsche Macan This small SUV is based on the same platform as the Audi Q5. This lower, sleeker and much more aggressive Macan will attract a lot of attention based purely on looks. Porsche made it very clear that this is not juts a Porsche in name but also in performance. Look for the Macan coming next year. Jaguar F-Type Jaguar made a big splash with the Jaguar F-Type convertible this year and next year we look forward to the coupe version, a dynamite looking coupe with a stunning silhouette and improved dynamics thanks to a stiffer body. The body of the car is built with extensive use of aluminum to produce the stiffest Jaguar ever made. This is one heart-pounding coupe I cannot wait to try. zack.spencer@ddrivewayBC.ca

How to get noticed at the LA Auto Show LOS ANGELES: Tinseltown. Hollywood. LA. No matter what you call it, it’s a city of millions and it’s easy to get lost in the crowd. But not if you’re attractive, have a great body and well, you shine. With hundreds of vehicles showcased at the Los Angeles Auto Show, it takes a lot to stand out amongst the plethora of sparkling sheet metal, which is constantly detailed by show workers. If you’re a sexy snake, that’s automatic grounds for attention. The SRT Viper GTS was on display, but it wasn’t just any old venom-producing reptile. It came with the Anodized Carbon Special Edition Package. Aside from 640 horsepower and 600 lb.-ft. of torque being produced from its handcrafted, all-aluminum 8.4-litre, mid-front V10, it comes with the first-ever use for the Chrysler Group’s unique metallic matte exterior colour. And exclusivity is the name of its game. Only 50 will be made and they’ll be available as of January, 2014. Speaking of fast things, you don’t get any faster on feet than Usain Bolt does. And if you’re paired next to Nissan’s fastest production GT-R to date, that’s an even more potent combination. Godzilla takes on the NISMO (aka NISsan MOtorsport) badge with a healthy helping of 600-horsepower and some defining exterior features. In regards to its body, it’s more rigid than before and you’ll also find it has a “factory tuned” enhanced suspension. The aero package, which not only looks

If you’re a luxury German vehicle and you have a worldwide debut in LA, chances are you’ll draw quite the A-List crowd. The all-new Porsche Macan did such a thing, with visitors such as Jerry Seinfeld and professional tennis player, Maria Sharapova. The Indonesian word for tiger, it’s the first Porsche in the compact SUV segment. Or you could say it’s the baby brother to the popular-selling Cayenne. Either way, they’re both have some spice

here is increasing evidence that shows that brain changes leading to dementia occur decades before the actual symptoms appear. This means that early diagnosis of dementia is very important. There are many on-line tests available to test you for Alzheimers and dementia symptoms. These are not reliable. Your best resource is your doctor. Winter air travel can be painful. Airplane ear, is a full, sometimes painful feeling in the ear as the plane takes off or lands. It often happens in winter when people have colds. Using a nasal decongestant spray a half hour before take-off can help. Don’t sleep during take-off and landing and try yawning to clear the ears or try pinching the nostrils and blow. It can help equalize the pressures in your head. The holidays seem to encourage to more alcohol consumption. One good rule to follow at social events is to drink two non-alcoholic drinks to one alcoholic drink. The extra fluid might make you feel fuller and you may eat less as well. Pharmacists are often asked if they can have a glass of wine or a beer with their medication. There are some medications in which alcohol would be totally prohibited. We will ensure you know what cautions to observe when taking your medication. So you might be able to enjoy that glass of wine after all!

You can trust the information our pharmacists give you about the drugs you are taking. Education of our customers is a job we take seriously. Let us serve your pharmacy needs soon.

LOS ANGELES – Four-time Formula One champion driver Sebastian Vettel has his fingerprints all over the Infiniti Q30 Concept on display at this city’s international auto show. If that were literally the case, the detailing crew constantly cruising the show floor would soon remove his dabs. However, the hands-on impressions of the Infiniti-Red Bull racer are more than skin deep, extending deep into the performance of the sporty compact. No powerplant details have been revealed for the car that will start rolling off the production line in early 2015 at Infiniti’s first European-based plant in the northeast UK city of Sunderland. However, Vettel’s involvement and input on performance specifications suggests this will be no slouch in takeoff and road handling. The Q30 Concept is the first model that the 26-year-old German driver has influenced from start-to-finish in his role as Infiniti’s Director of Performance. And a few words on that before we take a look at the sleek auto’s design. My cynical colleagues have suggested publicly that Vettel’s title is no more than a marketing ploy, with Vettel filling no more than a celebrity spokesman role. It is most certainly not the case, based on my private conversations with some Infiniti engineers. Just prior to my arrival for a drive with the young phenom on a French track this past spring, he had secretly put a number of Infiniti products and competitors through their paces and given immediate trackside input on suggested adjustments. In fact, one engineer told me Vettel is remarkable in the way he can do one lap and return with a complete commentary on how a car performed on every part of the track. If the F1 gig doesn’t work out there’s maybe a new career opp for him in the near future! The Q30 Concept is a fusion of coupe,

hatchback, and crossover body styles and, like Vettel’s racecar, there’s liberal use of carbon fibre throughout. That makes it a very light, aerodynamic and thus potentially high-performing and economical car. Interestingly, I’m told the designers combined Italian coachwork with the Japanese art of calligraphy to create the lightweight design. Inside, cream and bronze leather features with violet bespoke tailoring, along with contrasting matte and gloss finished metalwork. Sculpted ceramics are integrated into the upper front seatbacks housing speakers for a “symphonic audio experience.” It offers a level of technologies and features not typically found in compact cars, such as the Infiniti InTouch infotainment system, which uses two touch screens. Infiniti claims it expects significant growth in the compact premium segment among young-minded affluent customers. Note the reference to young minded. “The Infiniti Q30 Concept is highly predictive of a new head-turning premium compact that we will launch in early 2015,” said Michael Bartsch, vice-president, Infiniti Americas. “Research among the new generation of buyers - with Gen X and Gen Y soon to represent 80 percent of the market - shows an increasing rejection of traditional notions toward premium cars. These buyers are less willing to connect size, presence and high-output power as key ingredients of the premium product. Rather, they’re looking more for balance, great design and outstanding execution.” The Q30 will likely count the Mercedes-Benz B-Class and the Lexus CT200h hybrid hatchback among its competitors. This car could be a game changer in its class. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

MCLAREN, Roberta Jean Sept. 21, 1938 – Oct. 12, 2013 With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our wonderful mother, Roberta Jean McLaren on October 12, 2013 at the age of 75 from lung cancer. She fought her cancer bravely and refused to give up and we were happy that we could fulfill her wishes to stay in her home until the end. Her feistiness and stubborn nature kept her going longer than all of us expected, which we are grateful for. Roberta loved her lifelong hobby of sewing and knitting and took great pride in her superb workmanship. She loved being back in back in B.C. again with her family nearby and absolutely cherished her life in Mill Bay. Her laugh was contagious and her sense of humour and points of view kept us laughing with every visit. Roberta was predeceased by our loving father Ivor in 2012 and will be sadly missed by son Wayne (Solveig), daughter Heather (Kevan) and daughter Laurie (Ron), her grandchildren Heather, Patty, Nicole, Bob, Susie, John, Laurie and Stephen. Mom and dad are together again. We would like to thank all her caregivers, especially Lauri and Joanne for their kindness and support in her final weeks. There will be no service at the request of the family.

David William Knapton, 69, of Maple Bay, B.C., passed on August 14th, 2013 in Edmonton, AB, as a result of injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident. A celebration of life will be held from 12:00pm until 3:00pm on Saturday, November 30th in the lounge at Olympic View Golf course, 643 Latoria Rd, Victoria BC. Friends, relatives and colleagues are invited to attend. David is survived by his three children: John, Robert and Pamela, his spouse, Bev, and 5 brothers and sisters. If attending please rsvp to rwknapton@gmail.com

Nanaimo could maybe learn from Cowichan

Education: our school community able to move on

I

t has been interesting to follow the politics of education in our neighbouring school district to the north in Nanaimo. There, like here, a cash-strapped district has been wrestling with issues caused by short-term decision-making and plummeting enrollment. There, like here, the board of education has decided to address the issues with a massive restructuring plan revolving around multiple school closures. But according to at least one speaker at a recent school closure meeting in Ladysmith, that is where the similarities end. We did it the She pointed to rallies outside the Naright way, naimo school board office and threats of lawsuits that continue six months now give us after their restructure was announced. more funding And she compared that to Cowichan, where people are not necessarily happy with our restructure, but seem to have been able to move on with the business of educating our kids. And she said that has to show Nanaimo was doing something wrong, while Cowichan was doing something right. And she’s probably correct. People here get that school populations are dwindling. They are aware school programs have already been squeezed dry. They know the provincial government is not prepared to loosen the purse strings. And they can understand how, in this environment, it doesn’t make sense to continue operating several schools at levels dramatically below capacity. But they want to be active participants in finding solutions. And the process set out by Cowichan trustee Mike McKay and district staff seems to have allowed them to do that. Now if only the province would start injecting some new money into the system, maybe we could finally start moving forward again.

We say:

Seeing both sides of: Hospital’s fast-tracking effort The case against

The case for

How many of us have not arrived at the Cowichan District Hospital ER in need of urgent attention and had to wait... and wait... and wait? So adding what amounts to an urgent care component to CDH’s existing emergency care operation should be welcomed by everyone with open arms. Thumbs up to Island Health for fronting the money for this to happen sooner, instead of later.

Cowichan District Hospital’s ER is being augmented by a new fast-track system for less urgent patients.

Canadian Black Friday snobs beware, it’s coming Jay Siska

News Leader Pictorial

T

oday isn’t just any Friday, it’s Black Friday. Just a few years ago, as Canadians, we’d maybe see a few news clips of crazed hordes of shoppers stampeding through a U.S. box store to get a killer deal on an iPhone, or a quick interview with some hardy fools camping out in sub-zero temperatures to score one of those only-five-available door-crasher deals on a flat screen. The anchor would most likely have to include a reminder that it’s Thanksgiving down in the States (“Oh, their Thanksgiving is different from ours?”) Some of us would inevitably look at that shopping chaos and think, “Man, those Americans are cray-zay!” But just like most things these days it’s went and got real. Pretty damn quick.

Some of the footage of the Black Friday chaos in the States from last year was nothing short of insanity. Anyone who’s seen the film World War Z and its lighting-fast flood of zombies can attest to the similarities. Then, let’s mix in a little bare-knuckles slugfest, and a pinch of no-holds-barred gladiatorial combat to complete that holiday flavour. Delicious! But now, we’ve got Black Friday too. Canadian retailers have apparently taken a look at what’s been happening south of us. In an attempt to stem the tide of crossborder shopping and keep those dollars here, they’ve jumped on the bandwagon. Part of me — the part that really doesn’t like Christmas — is envious of the States. Their Thanksgiving , as so many are quick to say, marks the start of “Holiday Season.” I’d love to think there wouldn’t be anyone down there that would have a tree up this weekend as that would ruin its effect come

Yes, we’ve all spent painful hours waiting in the ER, and yes this program will help reduce that. But it is a Band-Aid at best. What the valley really needs is multiple 24-hour walk-in clinics around the community. And why are fundraisers even necessary to make this fast-track happen? Shouldn’t it automatically be paid for by the taxpayer?

COWICHAN LEADERS

Christmas. Maybe that’s just my wishful thinking, but that — in my mind — effectively keeps the start of Christmas under wraps until after this weekend. Meanwhile, Victoria had its Santa parade last weekend. When will the madness stop? It’s still November, remember? With Canadian retailers now officially adopting Black Friday, it’s done another thing beside just providing another highintensity day of sales. It’s the glue to bridge those people who want our holiday season to start weeks upon weeks before Christmas and actual December. And that ain’t a good thing. Now, because we’re Canadian, I’m not really expecting any of that kill-or-be-killed shopping attitude to evidence itself today, but that remains to be seen. And maybe I shouldn’t be joking about kill-or-be-killed, as people in the States actually have been killed on Black Friday.

But as much as I expect Canadian manners (“Oh sorry, did I bump into you?”) to prevail, I’m prepared to be disappointed. I’m calling this the very first Canadian Black Friday. If anything serious goes down I’ll be contacting blackfridaydeathcount.com to register the blackfridaydeathcount.ca domain name and get that happening. Stat. The U.S. ticker’s at four dead, 67 injured right now (reporting since 2006.) Let’s see where it’s at by midnight. Good luck to us all, and happy holidays.

1981: education

1981: charity

Worried their children were not being challenged, a group of parents met with the school district No. 65 board of trustees to urge the installation of special school programs for gifted and advanced students.

Bryan Holden, Duncan chairman of the Kinsmen’s Mothers’ March, announced the march would be held in January and asked for canvassers to volunteer to help.

Bureaucratic battle threatens students

Dateline 1981: Special needs kids at Cedar Lodge Ann Andersen

News Leader Pictorial

L

ike many institutions here, Cobble Hill’s Cedar Lodge has seen changes in its clientele over the years. In November 1981, local parents of neurologically-handicapped and learning disabled students feared the current program there was threatened. At the time, ten day students from school district 65 were among the 50 from across the province enrolled in the lodge’s programs, each individually tailored to the needs of the child. The school closure threat was the result of several factors. Most stemmed from the lodge’s unique focus of treating the whole child rather than providing only traditional school instruction and the resulting squabble in Victoria over which ministries should provide the funding. While the ministry of human resources was currently the primary funding source, ministry policies revealed a discomfort with funding schools. However, since the educational component was only a part of Cedar Lodge’s treatment, the ministry of education had committed itself to funding only this aspect. The school district would continue to provide a special education teacher and aide for the 10 day students, but the other teachers financed by human resources would probably have to go.

Others at the sad final curtain included Paul and Lorna Ruszel, Rick Dennis, Bob Thorne, and Beverley McKeen.

Step Into the Woods with the Chalkboard Theatre Musical theatre: explores the untold story of wellknown fairy tale characters

Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

F

airy tales laced with morals are as relevant today as when the Brothers Grimm wrote them. Depth of those messages is plumbed by Chalkboard Theatre’s teenage and youth cast mounting Into the Woods in Brentwood College’s T. Gil Bunch theatre. Dark corners of these Woods can be just as foreboding as those dank hallways found Phantom of the Opera — Woods’ 1987 Broadway competitor. So co-director Michelle Tremblay and Tilly Lorence — and musical director Laura Cardriver’s sextet — planted words and music in their Woods, aside from a forest of familiar, yet complicated story-book characters. The musical weaves plots of several Grimm stories, then follows them toward consequences of characters’ wishes and actions. Main characters come from Little Red Riding Hood (Sara Kaufmann), Jack and the Beanstalk (Marc Platt), Rapunzel (Sierra McKay), Cinderella (Kelsey Cadwallader) and others. Enter a childless baker (Alan Park), his wife (Kari Cowan), their wish to start a family, and a witch (Camellia Celeste) who puts a curse on the couple. Her hex affects the couple’s interaction with storybook folks during their journey, clad in Helga Trinczek’s costumes. “Into The Woods is for children, but in another way, it’s not,” said witch Camellia, 16. “It’s (about how) people are alone in lots of ways, like the witch, but no one seems to think of her as being alone because she is so powerful.” Deep themes about self awareness, loneliness, and self-esteem anchored Chalkboard’s choice of Woods. “We have to watch our actions because no one acts alone, and no one is alone,” explained Lorence. She groomed Chalkboard actors for some three years, with smaller productions, toward the troupe’s first full show. Lorence knows kids are increasingly boxed by the internet and other impersonal stuff, making Woods’ messages vital. “Kids are isolated by the net, but they realize we’re all connected.” So folks must help each other in times of crises — just like in fairy tales. “It’s sympathy and empathy for being human, and how fairy tales are still relevant in our modern society.” That idea is displayed in Woods by James O’Leary’s set based

Cinderella (Kelsey Cadwallader), The Prince (Haakon Koyote), and the narrator (Tyus Bro) star in Chalkboard Theatre’s moral-laden musical Into the Woods. on existentialist Carl Jung’s Red Book. “We wanted to do this musical because it has lots of depth and humour the students can relate to,” Lorence said. They also relate to a chorus of modern teens, and narrator/ mystery-man (Tyus Bro). Camellia relates to her complex witch. “I’m not good; I’m not bad; I’m just right.” Her challenge was focusing on her crone’s emotions in the demanding story. “Nothing is as it seems; it sounds cliché, but don’t judge a book by its cover.” Kelsey Cadwallader’s Cinderella is also no cliché. “We share some of the same issues: she wants to go to the festival, then realizes maybe it’s not what she had in mind.

“Cinderella’s innocent and childish, then becomes more of an adult and mother figure — all her problems are surrounded by boys.” Sounded familiar to Cadwallader, 18. Woods could reflect life situations to viewers willing to dig into what characters symbolize. “Each character has a huge journey. “What brings people into the woods is a bunch of stories they already know — it’s a different ending than what you’d think.” Your ticket What: Into the Woods When: Dec. 6, 7:30 p.m., and Dec. 7, 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. Where: T.

NDP MP Jean Crowder plants a big smooch on the PM after actor James Gordon’s Duncan Garage Showroom visit with his mutlimedia show Stephen Harper: The Musical.

Our prime minister would not be amused

Review: But plenty of others chortled at Harper: The Musical Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

L

et’s hope James Gordon keeps his superb, satiric musical Stephen Harper: The Musical, touring until our 2015 federal election. The one-man, one-puppet act was perfect food for thought, for folks of all political tastes, in the Duncan Garage Showroom recently. One can only guess our press-shy prime minister wouldn’t like Gordon’s guff, subtitled How To Survive and Thrive in the Dying Days of the Empire of Oil. Cowichan NDP MP Jean Crowder said she liked his cheeky show. But she’s biased. The rest of us just sat in Longevity John Falkner’s house, enjoying Gordon’s home-movie footage full of protests about Harper’s government. We also laughed and sang along to bowler-hatted Gordon’s poems and musical parodies about life under Harper’s majority Conservatives. That likely would have miffed the prime minister —as would Gordon’s many insightfully original songs played on guitar and piano. His humourous lyrics mocked the Senate scandal and the Tories’ non-debated omnibus bill, to unemployment, climate change, our overpriced fighter jets, Canada’s economic decline, and Harper’s sketchy deals with China. The Consevatives’ idea, Gordon explained — often conversing with stuffed Stephen — is to keep people apathetic, “stupid, and scared”, so they say little about taxpayer waste, and suspected secret deals with oil companies. Political-satire musical rating: 9 scandals out of 10.

Nine is enough?: Players showing some frustration during difficult period of losing Don Bodger

T

he Cowichan Valley Capitals’ losing streak is now up to nine games. The Caps were beaten 4-2 by the Nanaimo Clippers in B.C. Hockey League action Wednesday night at Cowichan Arena and will try to avoid double digits in the loss column when they host Alberni Valley Friday. Dane Gibson and Taki Pantziris scored power play goals for the Caps, but it wasn’t enough to snap the frustrating skid. “It’s multiple things,’’ said Caps’

assistant coach Aaron Plumb. “We’re missing our checks in the defensive zone. “Honestly, we outchanced them for quality scoring chances. We just can’t bury the puck when we need to. When things go bad, it seems nothing can go your way. We’ve just got to keep coming and put in more and more effort.’’ Plumb said the team intended to work on simply burying the puck in practice Thursday so players can get a feel for it. Gibson and Pantziris have been the only consistent scorers of late so the Caps need some other players to get hot. “Your best players have to be

your best players every night,’’ said Plumb. “You can definitely sense the frustration in the room,’’ he added. “We’re just trying to stay focused and positive — realizing we are getting our chances.’’ Opponents are making the most of their chances against the Caps. “The league’s pretty good now,’’ said Plumb. “It seems every line you play against, if you give them an opportunity, they can score.’’ Other than a couple of games during the streak when Plumb felt the Caps didn’t deserve to win, “every other game, we were there, for sure,’’ he said.

wo goals against Saturday was like a huge collapse for Cowichan LMG Pringle. Cowichan went into its Div. 1 Island Soccer League game with just one goal allowed in 10 games, but the total went through the roof in a 2-0 loss to Bays United Liquor Plus. Actually, the two goals didn’t exactly signify some sudden problem with the team. One came on a penalty shot and the other late in the game when Cowichan was pressing forward to take a shot at the equalizer. The result tightened up the standings considerably behind Cowichan, with Bays United, Saanich, Vic West and Nanaimo all just seven points apart. Cowichan has a bye this weekend and the other teams all have games in hand. “We just made the league very interesting,’’ said Cowichan coach Glen Martin. “Five teams realistically have a chance to win the league.’’ Bays scored at the 30-minute mark when Dan Cummings went down in the box and Kellen Holden scored on the ensuing penalty. “Right away, we were behind it a bit,’’ said Martin. “We were trying to chase it a bit.’’ Cowichan got things going toward the end of the first half and the momentum carried over into the second. “We really outplayed them in the second half,’’ said Martin.

Fourth Annual

He was amazed Cowichan didn’t tie the score on a flurry of activity around the Bays net, guarded by highlyregarded Elliot Mitrou. Steve Scott hit the post, Connor Crichton’s rebound shot was stopped by Mitrou and then another attempt went off Bays for a corner kick. “That summed our night up,’’ said Martin. “It was not meant to be.’’ Crichton had another great chance later, but couldn’t convert that one, either. The inevitable push for the equalizer led to a goal the other way in the 85th minute by Bays’ Matt Northrup on goalie Darian Achurch. “We let him walk in and let a shot go to the top corner,’’ said Martin. Cowichan is feeling a bit of a pinch with only 11 regular guys and some call-ups for the game while Bays loaded up with 19 guys available. Meanwhile, Div. 2 Cowichan United outplayed Gordon Head Blazers badly, but Friday’s game finished scoreless. “We just couldn’t find the luck we needed,’’ noted Cowichan’s Neall Rowlings. One shot hit the top crossbar and bounced out and hit the last defender. Cowichan couldn’t find the net shot after shot. “If we keep playing like that we will be unstoppable,’’ Rowlings raved. Cowichan plays Gorge at the Ladysmith Turf at 7:15 p.m. Friday. Cowichan is now in fourth place and could rally to a solid second or third or even relegation — it’s that close in another tight year in Div. 2.

ames like Saturday’s 4-2 win over Juan de Fuca are finally providing some light at the end of the tunnel for Cowichan Valley Midget Capitals’ hockey coach Aaron Spotts. “Our team has been really struggling the last 10 games, getting blown out quite a bit,’’ said the former member of the Cowichan Valley Capitals’ Junior A team. “It’s just a matter of finding a bit of consistency. We’ve seen our team do it at times.’’ After taking a 7-1 pounding at home from Saanich and absorbing a 10-4 drubbing at Victoria Racquet Club the previous weekend, Spotts was glad to see such a huge turnaround in the Juan de Fuca game. “Giving up that many goals is obviously not being very successful,’’ said

Spotts. But the defence tightened up and got the job done. “Luckily, the boys went out and showed they can execute.’’ Spotts will be looking for more of the same when his team plays home games against Pacific Coast Hockey Academy of Victoria Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Fuller Lake Arena and Campbell River in a league game Sunday at 4:10 p.m. at Fuller Lake. Rivals’ lineups have been bolstered from the start of the season with cuts from Junior B or other levels while the Caps’ roster has stayed basically the same. “A lot of these teams we’ve played have got guys back,’’ said Spotts. Cam Nickerson has been playing solid hockey for the Caps and is the team’s leading scorer. Nickerson, Liam Craig and captain Seth Davis are providing most of the offensive punch while Connor Sutton has been working hard and showing great potential for a young player.

t was a long day on and off the field for the Cowichan U18 girls’ rugby team Sunday. It was a 13-hour day for the players to travel to Abbotsford and back for the B.C. final in the division. Abbotsford added to the adrenaline drain on the players with a 31-7 victory over Cowichan. “Abbotsford is a team full of gifted athletes and gets high-level coaching,’’ noted Cowichan coach Brad Skene. “They should be complimented on the program that they have created. “Travelling over to the Mainland for a final is tough and it has been hard to prepare when we haven’t been challenged on the Island but we had the opportunity to compete with Abbotsford.’’ That would have required playing a near-perfect game to win and it didn’t materialize. “Unfortunately, we made too many mistakes near

The Cowichan squad played with grit and determination and the players were obviously upset to lose a B.C. final. “This group of athletes has several very elite rugby players but also includes a number who are new to the game and have relatively little experience by only playing one season of high school rugby,’’ Skene pointed out. He commended them for their efforts to continue to grow as players and the learning that occurred during the fall. “It has been impressive to see how far they have come,’’ Skene indicated.

Cowichan girls don’t go down without a fight in Island volleyball playdowns

Cowichan Secondary finished eighth in the Island AAAA senior girls’ volleyball championships, but didn’t go down without a fight. The girls played well as a team, according to co-coach Carmen Brown, the first day against Belmont and Oak Bay, with several amazing saves and strong attacks against Dover Bay. Cowichan faced Mount Douglas

Saturday and couldn’t quite match its energy. “I was impressed with how our net game had improved over the season, resulting in some excellent reads defensively and huge blocks at the net,’’ noted Brown. The final match-up was against Alberni. Cowichan faced a fierce first set, beating Alberni to 25, but Alberni came back to

pull off a win in the second. In the third set, Cowichan was unable to shake off the loss, allowing missed points to get it down and rattling the players’ confidence and intensity. Team all-stars were: powers Sarah St. Cyr and Carly Dirom and setter Jordie Peterson. Brown and co-coach John Bergsma were pleased by the girls’ improvements.

Archer on target after first World 3D appearance

Setting his sights: Next time, Mill Bay’s Bryan Harper will be even better prepared Don Bodger

ryan Harper’s vision for his first World Archery 3D Championship focused on gaining experience that will put him on target toward higher placings in the future. Harper, 39, the president of the Cowichan Bowmen Archery Club, was a late addition to the Canadian team that entered the tournament at Sassari, Italy. “If I had to sum it up, I’d say it was inspiring to compete with athletes of that calibre from 26 countries,’’ said Harper. “To shoot with them at that level certainly made me believe those goals are attainable. I look forward to the opportunity to go back and reacquaint myself.’’ Harper placed 29th out of 45 in his category, the men’s compound bow. The good news is he wound up being the top Canadian male for compound, ahead of teammates Al Campsall from Williams Lake (30th) and Steve Mitchell from High River, Alberta (36th). “I normally shoot better,’’ said Harper. “If I shot my average, I would have been close to make 16th.’’ But it wasn’t about results for Harper on this occasion on the world stage. It’s about dealing with the intricacies of rules and subtle distractions that aren’t present in normal competitions. Harper only started in archery in 2000. “I started with the intention of getting into bow hunting,’’ he said. “Gradually, the competitive side took over.’’ Harper has done not only 3D but target indoor and outdoor, and field archery. After a lot of practice, he began competing provincially and nationally. “I wasn’t expecting to be competing at that level and a buddy of mine

low who went in as the 16th qualifier ended up placing second overall. That’s how fine the line can be from the top of the pack to the bottom. “At that level, one shot can make the difference between winning the gold medal and not making the cut,’’ said Harper. “It was really tight competition.’’ Despite not having as long of a lead-up time as the others, Harper felt he did well. “I think preparation-wise, I practiced about as much as I could. “A lot of it is mental. It’s hard to prepare for these situations, having never been there.

“The biggest challenge with 3D is judging the distance. It’s definitely about having a routine and sticking to it.’’ The archers at the event ranged all the way from a 16-year-old girl to a 72-year-old man in longbow, an indication of the lifetime benefits the sport provides. There’s no funding to represent Canada at international archery competitions so it requires a lot of personal sacrifice. “I had a lot of support from the club, friends, family,’’ said Harper. “There was a lot of support came out of here for the trip.’’
