ne year ago, 18-year-old Johannes Bodendorfer was a high school student living in his native Austria. Yesterday, he was in Victoria taking a passionate stand for his adopted new home as part of a crowd estimated at between 500 and 600 people. Bodendorfer joined about 40 other Dwight International School students, dozens of Peter W.

Since birth I, now 77 years old, have had profound hearing loss and have been to many audiologists, clinics and hearing aid technicians looking for help. Owing to this experience, it puts me in the position to judge the quality of examinations . . . I must say that I have never had such a good examination as I had with Dr. Miranda.

work to a third-party provider.’’ A Park Place takeover at the New Horizons Care Centre in Campbell River preceded by employee layoffs led to a community protest there. “I have met with the families to introduce Park Place and to provide them with reassurance that quality of care will be maintained through this uncertain period and will be maintained and improved after the sale,” West said. He indicated Park Place has no plans to change the type, level or quality of care residents currently enjoy. He added all Park Place care homes meet or exceed national standards and the current agreement with the Vancouver Island Health Authority will be maintained with no changes to costs or services for the residents and families. “The process of the sale and the labour situation is governed by provincial legislation,’’ West noted. “Both the current owner and the prospective owner are following the required steps. Vancouver Island Health Authority and licensing are involved and they are monitoring that residents are not impacted through the transition.’’ The HEU is lobbying for change to the current system. “Our members are also circulating a petition in the community calling on politicians to put an end to contracting-out and contract flipping in long-term care and also for the implementation of the B.C. Ombudsperson’s recommendations concerning large scale staff replacements,’’ Blamey explained.

Community celebration for Luscombe Friday at CIBC

UP FRONT

Duncan Paralympic athlete Braydon Luscombe is behind honoured with a community celebration Friday at the CIBC Banking Centre in downtown Duncan. Luscombe, 21, will be presented with a gold-plated coin and a personalized sports pennant commemorating his participation at the Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. That will

take place at 9:30 a.m. at 116 Station St. CIBC has a four-year sponsorship of the Canadian Paralympic Committee, announced in October, that broadens support for the athletes and the way sports enriches communities and inspires the next generation of youth. Luscombe competed in para-alpine ski events during the Paralympics, his first time in the big

show. He has the potential due to his age to take part in at least the next two Paralympic Games and maybe more. Following the Paralympics, Luscombe returned to Duncan briefly and then went to Whistler for the Canadian Slalom Championships. He’s back in town again for a short time before leaving for more training and competition.

owichan’s cashstrapped school district faces a budgetary shortfall of some $1.5 million this year, treasurer Bob Harper told the board Wednesday. “We’re looking at about a $1.4-million to $1.5-million gap in total,” he said at SD79’s regular meeting, led by provincially appointed trustee Mike McKay, flanked by superintendent Joe Rhodes. Victoria’s budgetary envelope will address what Harper described as “about a $700,000 net decline in revenues.” But the bright light, he signalled, is a rise in district registration by international students. Public feedback to the board is welcome in the coming weeks as it finalizes the budget to be inherited by a new slate of trustees that will replace McKay after B.C.’s Nov. 15 civic election. — Peter W.

queaky citizen wheels got the fiscal grease in the CVRD’s new budget boasting the smallest tax hike in two decades, Area E’s director explained. Loren Duncan (Cowichan Station/ Sahtlam/Glenora) was happy public outcry about rising taxes forced the board to basically hold the line to a 2.36% tax-requisition increase in its $76.9 million budget for 2014 —$30.7 million of which is tax based. “Public vigilance is the best tool to force those things,” he said. “There’s been general pressure on the CVRD to look at its financials.” Directors apparently saw they had to reduce spending and taxes from a four-year average increase of 8.4%.

“How come we’ve been about eight- to 9% forever — and I’ve been bellyaching about that — and this year we’re 2% and bit? Because there’s been pressure from the public that they’ve had enough.” Cowichan Bay homeowners enjoy the biggest financial windfall, a $5.95 tax drop. At the other end of the spectrum, Youbou/Meade Creek folks are facing a $48.90 tax jump. Duncan also recognized the CVRD has frozen senior staff wages due to taxpayer complaints. “That’s peanuts in the scheme of things, but it puts pressure on everyone — and shows there was lots of slack and fat in the budgets.” Salary and wages total $15.2 million, accounting for 19.7% of the total budget, CVRD corporate services manager Mark Kueber emailed the News Leader Pictorial.

“Any increases to staff salaries, and any severances for 2014, is included in these (total budget) figures.” Those figures include a $335,000 severance package, reached privately recently with departing CAO Warren Jones, Kueber indicates. The largest expenditure category is capital at $17.1 million, or 22.2% of the budget, Kueber notes. “The tax impact for each jurisdiction is different; it all depends on what services are provided and if there is an increase, or not, in that service. Not every area receives every service. The CVRD only provides those services that have been approved by recipients,” he said. Meanwhile, Duncan admitted he joined directors Mary Marcotte (North Oyster/Diamond), and Ian Morrison (Cowichan Lake South/ Skutz Falls) in opposing this year’s

budget. “One of my reasons is that the Island Savings Centre is out control financially,” Duncan said of ISC’s budget lift of some 2%, partially to boost building-replacement reserves. “It’s not falling down, and its budget has grown relentlessly, particularly for the theatre. There aren’t proper (spending) controls in there at all.” Cowichan’s transit system also bothered Duncan. He claimed his residents pay 70% more in assessed property for transit services compared to North Cowichan taxpayers. “The financial relationship of Area E to transit is predatory.” Despite cuts, tax jacks of some level seemed inevitable to Duncan. “If you take a certain amount out of the hide, and the hide shrinks a bit, you still have to take something out of the hide,” he said.

Bylaw No. 3705 includes Schedule A – Zoning Designations. Bylaw No. 3805 is complementary to Bylaw No. 3705 because it removes all lands that will be zoned under Bylaw No. 3705 from CVRD Electoral Area D – Cowichan Bay Zoning Bylaw No. 1015, 1986. Specifically, the following zones will be removed:

Bylaw No. 3705 applies to all lands within Electoral Area D – Cowichan Bay excluding those lands which are subject to the Cowichan Estuary Environmental Management Plan and also excluding lands zoned W1, W2, W3, W3A, W6, W7 or C5 under CVRD Electoral Area D – Cowichan Bay Zoning Bylaw No. 1015, 1986. Bylaw No. 3705 would enact zoning and other regulations in accordance with the Local Government Act including: • Pursuant to Section 903, to regulate the use of land, buildings and structures; • Pursuant to Section 903, to regulate the density of the use of land, buildings and structures, and the siting, size and dimensions of buildings and structures and the uses that are permitted on the land; • Pursuant to Section 903, to regulate the shape, dimension and area, including minimum and maximum sizes, of all parcels of land that may be created by subdivision; • Pursuant to Section 904, to establish different density regulations for certain zones including those generally applicable for the zone and others which apply subject to conditions including the provision of amenities; • Pursuant to Section 906, to regulate the provision of off-street parking and loading spaces; • Pursuant to Section 907, to regulate the maximum percentage of the area of land that may be covered by impervious material; • Pursuant to Section 908, to regulate the number, size, type, form, appearance and location of any signs; • Pursuant to Section 909, to set standards for and regulate the provision of screening and landscaping to mask or separate certain land uses; and • Pursuant to Section 946, to establish minimum parcel areas for parcels that may be subdivided under that Section; • Pursuant to Division 1, Part 22, to enact regulations respecting the keeping of animals; and • Pursuant to Division 3, Part 22, to enact regulations respecting nuisances and disturbances.

North Cowichan wants to make this view easier for more people to enjoy. wichan council agreed to: approve the park in principle; consult with First Nations with the intention of applying to the province for a lease, or a grant to purchase the site; and consult with user groups about cost-sharing agreements. “The municipality has had very brief consultation with First Nations, primarily Cowichan Tribes. Initial dialogue was not received positively by Cowichan Tribes representatives,” Mansueti writes. “All parties are cognizant and concerned that a proposed park does not alter or destroy the cultural significance to the Tribes people or Hul’qumi’num group and continued dialogue is paramount,” he added in a follow-up interview. The land is believed to have reverted to the ground after previous owners, the Trustees of the

Cowichan Mountain Memorial, dissolved in 1970. Park development could include: road maintenance; trail upgrades to each peak; park amenities and safety restraints at both peak lookouts; enlarging the parking area and adding washroom facilities. “As part of the report, staff has outlined the scope of work required to make Mount Prevost more accessible and provide a basis for community organizations and volunteer groups to contribute monies and/or work to develop a more accessible public park,” Mansueti said. “This could be accomplished by phasing various elements of this project. “Capital and annual costs have been estimated to illustrate the scope of the project if the municipality proceeded.”

he bid to develop the peak of Mount Prevost into an accessible public park remains very much a work in progress. North Cowichan has endorsed the plan and made overtures to the province about making it happen, as the public continues to request better access. But the overtures have not advanced to a formal application, and a full consultation with First Nations is still required. That’s the gist of an email from North Cowichan’s parks and recreation manager Ernie Mansueti to Dave Darwin of the Duncan Daybreak Rotary Club — the group that originally approached North Cowichan with the idea a few years ago. “We have been in ongoing contact with Lorraine Mannix – Provincial Legal Services Branch, Ministry of Justice,” Mansueti writes. “We have highlighted that North Cowichan is continually approached to develop Mount Prevost into an accessible park. “We provided the information regarding your Club’s presentation and Council’s direction to staff to determine annual costs.

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST – DISPOSITION OF LAND 361 ST. JULIEN STREET The City of Duncan is inviting interested parties to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) proposal for the purchase, lease, or joint development of the following land: The City-owned property at 361 St. Julien Street (Lot 19, Block 9, Plan 1063, Section 17, Range 6, Quamichan District, PID 008-072-892). The property is located on the west side of St. Julien Street between Trunk Road and Coronation Avenue, one block west of the Trans Canada Highway. The site is 18.29m (60ft) by 36.58m (120 ft) with an area of 669sqm (7,200 sqft).

A series of speakers took turns making the community’s point in a variety of ways. They included Cowichan Valley MLA Bill Routley, Cowichan Valley B.C. Liberal Constituency president Steve Housser, SRA president Calvin Cook, Shawnigan Lake Director Bruce Fraser and NDP leader Adrian Dix — who pointed to the room where cabinet was meeting so the crowd could deliver its message to the right spot. But Furstenau was particularly pleased with the impact of the message delivered by the three student speakers: Bodendorfer, Dwight’s Madeleine Corwin and Cecil Ash from SLS. “They said “this is a decision being made by people who won’t have to live with the consequences,’” she said. Bodenborfer said he would not have pictured himself in that spot one year ago. But he’s done his research on the issue. And after living in Shawnigan, growing to love the lake and observing the passion residents have for their community,

he now can’t picture himself standing idly by. “I was blown away by the strong sense of community in Shawnigan,” he said. “In Europe we don’t have that. I was just amazed.” Furstenau believes the rally will bring this issue to the attention of more people outside of Cowichan and help them understand it could affect more than one community. “I think that with the media

coverage it will start to do that. It’s not just Shawnigan; the aquifers could be connected.” And the attention the rally will draw could force cabinet to listen. “We all know that in the end they can make the final decision on this.” The Environmental Appeal Board hearing in Victoria has been ongoing all month. It is expected to wrap up April 4.

nomination for the ruling Conservative party. They are Damir Wallener, who was the B.C.Conservative candidate in the 2013 provincial election, and Duncan city councillor Martin Barker.

“We’re significantly constrained as to what we can say,” McKay explained, citing privacy rules. “Staff will continue to engage with the parties to get agreement on the facts.” A hired mediator also tried to settle concerns raised between the family and school officials. McKay declined to state how much his cashstrapped board has spent on those talks. The protestors declined to identify the family in question. The News Leader Pictorial is interested in telling their story, should they wish to share it. Parent demands for counselling for upset kids who have been “left foundering” by the situation was acknowledged by a concerned McKay. He declined to give the report a precise time frame, indicating it would be written in the next few months.

e are confronted with it on a daily basis. In newspapers, magazines, radio, television and online, it is a constant that we have become accustomed to; a seemingly never-ending litany of bad news. The list seems endless; from our battered economy, to war and atrocities abroad, local crime, poverty, not to mention our fragile environment. Thankfully, if you look for it, there is also a bounty of good news out there and a local organization wants us all to help that good news spread. The staff and volunteers of Cowichan Lake Community Services challenge you to Be the Change! by performing simple acts of kindness and positive change and in doing so, helping to make our little corner of the planet a much kinder and better place. “This is about the little things that we sometimes take for granted but can have a big impact on the people around us. Things as simple as holding a door open for a stranger or just giving someone a smile as you pass them on the street,” said Cowichan Lake Community Services counsellor, Sarah DeBodt. The program’s start-up coincided with International Random Acts of Kindness Week Feb. 10 to 16, but will continue on an ongoing basis. Anyone, of any age can participate as often as they like, with staff hoping some of the positive actions suggested become part of people’s daily routines. The ideas are simple, mostly free and totally do-able —from giving a pedestrian a smile as you stop to let them use the crosswalk, to helping a neighbour with chores when they’re under the weather, to letting the mom with the fussy toddler go ahead of you in the grocery store line-up. All these simple, decent acts are what help make the world a better place. “We’ve got our “Be the

The CVRD is requesting expressions of interest from individuals located in the SSLWMP area (Cobble Hill, Mill Bay, and Shawnigan Lake) to assist with the SSLWMP amendment, and who are prepared to volunteer their time to attend regular daytime and evening committee meetings, information meetings, open houses, and other related activities during the coming months. If you are interested in serving on the SSLWMP Advisory Committee, please send a brief letter outlining your background and area of interest to: Diana Hutton

Cowichan Lake Community Services counsellors (from left): Emma Girard, Amanda Sawatzky and Sarah DeBodt surround the Be the Change box outside the office. Change” mailbox hanging right outside the door at Community Services if people are stuck for ideas to get started,” said DeBodt. The bright yellow cards have a task on one side and on the other, directions that are simple: 1) Pick a card, 2) Perform the task and 3) Be the change! Participants are encouraged to tell the world about their experiences on Cowichan Lake Community Service’s Facebook page, then to either recycle their card, pass it on to someone else or return it to the box so someone else can

choose that task. You can also drop in to the office and fill out a “Be the Change” post-it to share your experience. DeBodt was inspired to initiate the program after seeing a similar one organized by a yoga studio in Lantzville. She got the kids of the Youth Drop-in group that she was heading involved and was thrilled by the excitement and creativity the group displayed for the idea. At a Community Service’s staff meeting, she shared her story with other staff and the team decided to adopt the program at home.

“We want people to realize that so often a simple act of kindness can totally turn someone’s day around,” says DeBodt. “This program provides us all with the opportunity to pay it forward and really make a difference in our community.” The program and the whole concept of the random acts of kindness movement were inspired by the words of a simple man, who by his quiet resolve did more than his part to change the world. Mahatma Gandhi said “We must become the change we want to see in the world.”

Engineering Services 175 Ingram Street, Duncan, BC, V9L 1N8 or via e-mail to edy@cvrd.bc.ca Expressions of Interest will be received up to 4:30 p.m., Friday, April 4, 2014. Further information may be obtained by calling the Engineering Services Department at (250) 746-2530

Patients being held hostage unnecessarily

Sunridge Place: Countdown closing in on two months for ownership change

T

wo months may sound like a long time, but it really isn’t. That’s how much time remains before the layoff notices issued to Sunridge Place employees take effect. And, yet, there is still no definitive answer from the new owner, Park Place Seniors Living, whether it intends to become the employer or contract-out. The contacting-out issue remains the sticky point in the process for the Hospital Employees’ Union. The union acknowledges everything else Park It’s way past Place has done in terms of notices through the B.C. Labour Code and time for emStandards Act is clearly ployees to get Employment above board. But if you compare the situation to answers the recent buy-out of Safeway stores — including the one in Duncan — by Save-On Foods, they’re like night and day. The staff at Safeway is basically being retained by Save-On and the union was notified to ensure a smooth transition. No one knows yet what’s going to happen with Sunridge. Keeping patients and employees on pins and needles isn’t the way to go. If many employees won’t have a chance to reapply for their jobs, they need to know so they can get on with their lives. And if the facility’s services are going to be contracted out, patients and their families need to know immediately that care won’t be disrupted. The care facility is not like a grocery store where you can just restock the shelves if you want to. These are people we’re talking about, and people in need of assistance to function in their everyday lives. You also have to ask yourself where Island Health is in all this. It’s responsible for ensuring the continuity of care and a proper transfer of ownership.

Many remain in the community and will surely be sharing those fond memories with the younger members of ther families, who won’t get the same privilege.

Duncan Elementary has been a flagship school in the district since 1913.

It’s sad there won’t be a 200th anniversary or even a 101st, for that matter. The best hope is the school district will utilize the space in the future for some of its needs so it remains a fixture in the community for a long time to come. The grand old building on Nagle Street deserves that occupation at the very least for the way it’s stood the test of time through wars and peace.

Valley People feature tells a great deal about a person Jay Siska

News Leader Pictorial

V

alley people: Jay Siska Occupation: I work at a paintball field. Age: 44 If you get a chance go see: NARC. It’s Joe Carnahan’s undisputed masterpiece of a cop film. The three scenes before the opening credits will crush you. Right now I am reading: The first collected volume of Fatale by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Yes, we’re talking comic books. I’m listening to: The Tom Leykis Show, The Gary and Dino Show, New Normal Rock, and a bunch of different pop-punk and screamo/emo channels via the TuneIn app on my phone. At least once everyone should: Play paintball. Most people don’t know I: Am highly educated in a number of fields.

Proudest or happiest moment: Is not suitable for print in this paper. Biggest fear: Fear is the mind killer. If I was appointed king of the valley I would: Outlaw the dumping of any contaminated soil in Shawnigan’s watershed, begin construction of a South End Eco Depot on the double, and ban the RCMP and/or IRSU setting up speed traps on the Malahat’s passing lane approaching Tunnel Hill (because that effort — despite their claims — has nothing to do with safety, and is a shooting-fish-in-a-barrel cash-grab.) Words I live by: Always be closing (look it up on YouTube.) I literally (despite writing for the paper) have no idea how the Leader selects those who appear in its Valley People feature. Not sure if it’s a random selection when photographer extraordinaire, Andrew Leong, is out and about, or it’s pre-determined somehow. In the end, it doesn’t matter. I always thought, “Hey, let me answer

COWICHAN LEADERS

those questions. It’ll be unlike any responses you’ve ever got in the past.” Maybe that’s why I’m employed here as a columnist — I’m not like most everyone else. But that’s dumb to say. I am like everyone else in a lot of ways. I just like different things and don’t fall into the married with 2.5 children archetype. My proudest or happiest moment isn’t “the birth of my kids.” When I read someone is listening to CBC radio and classical music, I think, “Dude, that’s crap.” That same person probably reads my listening-to responses and recognizes as much as they would if they were penned in Mandarin Chinese. I’ve got to admit I like the “king of the valley” question the best, because — for me — it provides the biggest glimpse into the heart of the featured person. Answers are sometimes completely practical or altruistic, other times playful and whimsical, and then

there’s the odd drunk-on-power, madcap response that’s hilarious. And, yes. I still react with the excitement of an eight-year-old if the featured person is someone I know. Then I examine whether the responses fit with the mental picture I have constructed for that person — as if it’d be the paper’s fault if they don’t. Valley People is the epitome of the KISS concept (keep it simple stupid) in action, which is why it’s so consistently entertaining. We are the valley. Welcome to it.

Should Cowichan’s bus drivers be behind Plexiglas for safety? “It’s up to bus drivers to come up with a solution that will make them safer on the job. We can’t dictate to them because we don’t understand what it is to be a bus driver.”

North Cowichan sets new bar for value of farmland

Dear editor Mayor and council have decided on the beautiful farm land on Ford Road for the new cop shop. $1 million for five acres equals $200,000 per acre for farm land. Thank you. Thank you for raising the value of farm land. According to Mr. Nichols, who used to live there (12 years) the land was excellent for growing. Now those who say they are struggling on their farms can perhaps capitalize on the new higher value you created. Thank you again. Who needs food? Johanna Mellor North Cowichan

Duncan indeed fortunate to have such great crews

Dear editor Paul Fletcher is right in his March 14 column; we are lucky to have such a great bunch of city workers. They are great people and commissionaire Stu Allen is a local hero, and a great bloke. Joe Simpson, Duncan, comments submitted at cowichannewsleader.com

Drinkwater doesn’t need the cars station will bring

Dear editor Putting the RCMP building on Ford Road will only bring more unwanted traffic to Drinkwater Rd. a road already overburdened by the users of the Cowichan Commons Mall at one end and the CVRD recycling centre, more commonly referred to as “the

There is already too much traffic on this road, one part being a rural farm road. It is bad enough public service vehicles go blasting up our road at breakneck speed already. We also have mom and pop traffic going to the recycling centre (leaving half their garbage on the side of the road as they go), to say nothing of the traffic coming from Lake Cowichan going to the mall. Add to that the daily rattle of garbage trucks and large trucks avoiding the scales and our beautiful country road has been turned into a freeway. People used to walk on this road, ride horses, and enjoy the quiet and the beauty. Now they are taking their lives into their hands. There are many other options and properties for the municipality to consider. Where are the traffic studies? Where is Drinkwater Road resident input? No one asked us if we wanted the police station on our road and the Municipality of North Cowichan should be ashamed to be taking good agriculture land to

develop. You have given Drinkwater Road residents enough grief during the past 20 years. How about picking on someone else for a change? Use the Somenos School property. It has access to both the TCH and Highway 18. Doesn’t that make more sense? Janet Richardson comments submitted at cowichannewsleader.com

We never asked for this

Dear editor The first line of a recent article reads “City hall’s drive to slow speeders, boost bike use and bust carbon along Cairnsmore has fizzled with rider, Warren Chapman. Let me assure you, it’s fizzled with a lot more people than Warren Chapman and it’s hard to believe city administrator Peter de Verteuil would defend what is possibly the worst case of traffic management design, since the traffic light installation at Trunk Road and Canada Avenue. His dismissive attitude toward Warren Chapman’s very real concerns is appalling. As a long-time resident

of this neighbourhood, I have to ask, why was this even done, and at whose request? Cairnsmore Street has always been an extremely safe street. In 40 years of living here, I can’t recall a single accident, even with hundreds of students being delivered to Duncan Elementary School daily. If the City of Duncan has undertaken an exhaustive study that indicates Cairnsmore has been an extremely dangerous two blocks of carnage and mayhem, then I apologize. But I know they haven’t and I know it isn’t. The city apparently consulted with a group called the “Cairnsmore Neighborhood Working Group” that claims to liaise with the city on behalf of our neighborhood.

They don’t. They don’t represent me or anyone else I know in this neighborhood. They are selfappointed and have no business speaking on anyone’s behalf. Peter de Verteuil stated the neighborhood’s main concern was about curbing speeding. This is false. Myself, my neighbors and friends who live in this area have never expressed this concern. De Verteuil also states “we wanted to make the cycling environment better than it was.” They didn’t; they made it worse. De Verteuil also states “There wasn’t enough room to put bike lanes on both sides.” This is false. Simply removing a portion of boulevard would have provided more than enough space. He also states “The bumpouts don’t stick out as far as a parked car does.” This is false. The bump-out on the corner of Cairnsmore and Nagle sticks out seven feet, most cars are four 1/2 to five feet wide and nobody parks two or three feet off the curb. De Verteuil also states “Turning room around Cairnsmore’s bump-outs is deceptively ample.” This is false. Turning room around Cairnsmore’s bump-outs is very obviously inadequate. Buses and trucks routinely pull into oncoming traffic lanes to make these turns. Yes, people occasionally sped along Cairnsmore. They still do. Nothing has changed. There you go taxpayers, another $500,000 of your money down the drain, to create an obstacle course out of what was once a nice, wide, safe street. Make sure to write thank you letters to your mayor and city council. Mark Williams Duncan

Local hospital feeling the funding crunch Dateline 1933: More home care for the poor? Ann Andersen

News Leader Pictorial

A

nyone who’s been involved in education over the past decade and a half recognizes the challenges in the face of dwindling funds from the provincial government. Deep into the depression in March 1933, King’s Daughters’ Hospital and the two local governments were feeling the pinch. Duncan and North Cowichan were advised they would lose 50% of liquor profits for the coming budget year. During 1932, Duncan received $2,333.29 in liquor profits and horse racing receipts; North Cowichan’s take was $4,650. Over at KDH, directors learned the cut to their annual provincial grant would be between $2,500 and $3,000 — an amount equal to close to three-quarters of a month’s operating costs. A possible saving proposed was trying to reduce the number of poor people admitted. Perhaps, directors suggested, arrangements could be made for home treatment for those who couldn’t afford to pay hospital fees. An improvement that had to be made regardless of cost, they said, was to improve the present accommodation for Indians (sic) and Doukhobors, at present far from satisfactory. As well, $221 must be spent on updating the whole electric wiring system to bring it up to safety standards.

Faster than a speeding bullet . . . almost By Keith Morgan

The McLaren 650S Coupe made its North American debut this week at the Vancouver International Auto Show. The British-made super car can

accelerate from zero to 200km/h in just 8.4 seconds. The 4-litre, twin turbo V8, boasts a surprisingly good fuel consumption rate of 11.7 L/100K. Mind you, perform a few burnouts and you will be visiting the gas pumps with more frequency.

At press time, there was no sticker price available other than the European price, which is in excess of $350,000.

*Rebuild – A vehicle written off as a total loss by an insurance company, then rebuilt and certified for use. This term does not describe a vehicle that has a new or repaired motor, transmission or other major part. Rebuilds offer savings when repaired well, but a buyer has a right to know it was rebuilt. But this buyer didn’t and Walt walked away with the cash.

just can’t keep it anymore,” I lied. In reality, I imported the car from Washington. It came with documents that mentioned New York State. The title was clean, so I assumed it was in good condition. I priced the vehicle quite high – well over its value. But he didn’t know, and he didn’t ask any more questions. I told him I had another buyer interested (another lie), and that he had to make a decision right away. With no hesitation, he got a bank draft and I gave him the keys. Like I promised, I threw in the new tire gauge. Marty gave me a wink and slowly drove off. Another foolish customer, I thought. No history report to keep me on my toes. And worse, he needs to get it inspected, registered and insured within 30 days - I didn’t bother. I just got my buddy in Bellingham to help me get it across. That evening, I took out the papers I’d received with the car. I decided to go over them more thoroughly. I guess I was a bit bored. Turns out, the vehicle had been registered in four U.S. states. Somewhere along the line, the rebuild* status was dropped. Probably intentionally. The inspection and ICBC will catch that. And who knows if the odometer is right? At least it’s no longer mine.

Confessions of a Curber It’s only been a month, but I can see myself selling cars for a long, long time. I feel like a new man. One evening, I was in line at the superstore. An elderly gentleman saw my shopping cart. I had a new digital tire gauge that I was going to give to my next buyer. Turns out he was looking for a used car as he’d recently given his car to his grandson. He just needed something basic. “This is your lucky day!” I told him. The old fellow was around my father-in-law’s age – close to 80. He walked with a cane and had two ear pieces. I was practically shouting to him. What an easy sale. I decided to give him a ride and show him the car. He went on to tell me about his young granddaughter, too. At any rate, we got to the car – it was a base model with an automatic transmission. “It’s perfect for you, sir!” I exclaimed. He got in and sat at the wheel. His face lit up right away. I could tell that he’d been a car enthusiast in his younger days. “Where’d you get this car, son?” he asked me. “It’s my dad’s old car – he passed away and I

driveway Driveway team warms to the Hagerty Spring Thaw event

Friday, March 28, 2014

by Nigel Matthews

The Hagerty Spring Thaw is a budget-minded driving adventure through British Columbia for pre1979 touring and sportscars. And that was all cost conscious Driveway editor Keith Morgan needed to know to take part in this un-scored, non-competitive event, which takes place next month entirely within the province of British Columbia. “I spend the entire year driving new cars so this seemed like a fun way to spend some fun time in a classic,” Morgan explained. “My old friend George Holt, from Gabriola Island, has a rather fine 1954 Jaguar XK120 roadster so

I’m going to ‘nagivate’ for him. Yes, knowing George I will be doing more ‘nag’ than ‘nav’!” The drive starts on Friday, April 25, in Squamish and finishes in Hope, on Sunday, April 27. To ensure an “adventure”, the route will remain secret until competitors receive their entry packages at registration. Way-finding instructions will be detailed and clear, and will not require any calculations or rally knowledge. The event consists of 100 percent paved roads, with some mountainous terrain, and driving is scheduled during daylight hours. Car wash facilities are available at each overnight stop. The Morgan and Holt Driveway

team will photograph the event and their journey along the spectacular 1,200km route over three days. The account of their adventure will appear in Driveway and online at drivewaybc.ca in early May. Squamish Classic Car Adventures and the West Coast Rally Association organize the Spring Thaw and follow the BC Rally Regulations. The event is open to sport, touring and classic cars from 1979 and earlier. The organizers say that if people believe they have a unique car that fits, but doesn’t meet the age category they should make contact, regardless.

Driveway readers to spend billions to buy a new set of wheels Driveway readers are in the mood to splash out an astonishing $3.6 billion-plus of their hard-earned cash to buy new vehicles this year. This is not some by Keith Morgan wild, optimistic prediction but a solid forecast based on what our readers revealed in a comprehensive survey conducted on behalf of Black Press by Pulse Research, a company with 30 years of experience in asking the right questions of consumers. In a series of wide-ranging interviews, Black Press newspaper readers from all over the province gave Pulse a comprehensive account of their spending plans. Their intention to spend $53.1 million on fish and chips, $45.8 million on tooth whitening, $13.1 million on tattoos or piercing, $9.1 million on pet toys and $1.9 million on tuxedos, raised some smiles. But the auto spending intent grabbed our serious attention. A massive 123,275 households will take vehicles for a spin and sign on the dotted line. A massive 51,895 will park a new car on their driveway, 32,312 will house a sport ute in their garage, while another 28,395 will opt for a truck out front. Most people surveyed knew what kind of wheels they would be looking for and what they were prepared to pay.

ON STAGE

Crofton jazz series expects a Full House

The string of great sax continues at the Crofton Hotel. Hot on the heels of this weekend’s visit from the Boss Tenors March 30, the Crofton Sunday jazz series continues April 6 with a visit from Full House. According to event promotional material, Nanaimo’s Full House is the brainchild of Larry

Miller, an “underappreciated and essentially unknown genius on tenor saxophone,” the band’s website says. He’s one half of the sax tandem in the front line of the quintet, along with alto saxophonist Claudio Fantinato, also an “underappreciated and unknown genius.” With a rhythm section composed of pianist

Patrick Courtin, bassist Doug Gretsinger and James McRae on drums, the dual saxophonists will put their genius on display on the Hotel Crofton Pub stage on Sunday as part of the pub’s weekly jazz series. The jazz series runs every Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m. at the pub, 1534 Joan Ave. in Crofton. Admission is $10. Calll 250-324-2245.

My Fair Lady ready to fly Postponement over: Recovered from three weeks of bedrest, Sarah Lane ready to dive into the biggest role of her career Peter W. Rusland

News Leader Pictorial

ctress Sarah Lane’s transformation into English lass Eliza Doolittle rings uncannily as life imitating art. Her studied stagecraft surfaces next weekend as the lead in My Fair Lady, South Island Musical Society’s production, delayed from its original February run after Lane became quite ill. “Eliza’s one of the biggest roles I’ve ever played,” the veteran thespian and dancer said. “The biggest theme of the show is a transformation in terms of her emotion, character, physicality, dress, and manners. I really feel like I’m Eliza, in terms of the role. “It’s also one of the biggest, and best roles I’ve ever had. The journey Eliza goes on is incredible.” Her personal odyssey basically traces George Bernard Shaw’s famed play Pygmalion portraying the crass, Cockney flower girl’s evolution into high-society lady under the tutelage of Prof. Henry Higgins (Alex Gallacher). Lane experienced that rewarding metamorphosis while evoking Eliza. “The ferocity of her character is huge,” she explained, noting My Fair Lady blends dramatic and aural smarts. “Acting required for the role is crucial to give the character the integrity and justice it deserves. “I get to stretch my acting chops, but the songs are some of the most memorable and well known in musical repertoire.” MFL’s legendary Broadway run — then the 1964 movie starring Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn — gave the world Lerner and Loewe’s memorable tunes Why Can’t The English Learn To Speak?, The Rain In Spain, On The Street Where You Live, With A Little Bit of Luck, Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?, and others. The plot pivots on a bet between Higgins and Col. Hugh

Peter W. Rusland

The show must go on for the South Island Musical Society, and it will next weekend, now that My Fair Lady’s Eliza Doolittle Sarah Lane is recovered from health issues that postponed its initially scheduled run. Pickering (Bob Norris) based on scruffy Eliza being taught the groomed ways of upper-class living by the sniffy elocution prof. That character swap sees Eliza gradually trade her Cockney accent for swanky Edwardian-speak. Lane learned both tongues for her turn as Eliza. “I spent months with dialect tapes to perfect my accents — I have a really good ear for accents anyway.” That came from living in England at age 10, Lane explained, noting her Irish and English ancestry. “Acting director (Drew Kemp) has worked me really hard to just get to the root of the character. The emotional crux of Eliza just stripped me down to creating the character.” That creation was interrupted early this year by a nasty flu bug some first feared was H1N1. “I had bronchitis and pneumonia. I was not hospitalized, but bed ridden for three weeks.” Without an understudy for Lane’s rigorous role, SIMS brass, cast and crew agreed to postpone its show two months. “It was an incredibly humbling moment in my life to have the support of the cast, crew and executive like that.”

Still, the two-month delay allowed the cast to apply more polish. “It was a blessing in disguise because it also allowed more time to finesse everything,” the soprano and opera singer said. Lane signalled satisfaction with messages about feminism and personal bravery imbedded in My Fair Lady — despite Shaw’s dismay with Broadway’s version of Pygmalion. “Eliza has so much passion, and that’s me to a tee. The whole feminist movement is represented in her, but the musical doesn’t really honour Shaw’s intention of Eliza going out on her own.” Instead, a refined Eliza marries Higgins. “A lot of audiences struggle with the ending, but also see she’s on equal terms with him,” said Lane.

irtually every Cowichan artist and art lover is familiar with the Cowichan Valley Fine Arts Show. Most of them are looking forward to it. But how many are still considering actually using it to showcase their work? If you are on the fence, it’s time to get off. The deadline for submitting material for next month’s show arrives next week. “The show is an important opportunity for artists and artisans of all backgrounds to showcase their best artistic talents. It is also

a great place for art lovers to pick up an original ‘made on the island’ treasure,” a CVAC media release states. “Featured will be the works of student, emerging and professional artists working in a range of mediums from painting, pottery, weaving, jewelry, mixed media, sculptures and glass.” Any artist or artisan 16 and older and a member in good standing with the Cowichan Valley Arts Council can submit one piece of original artwork that has not been previously shown on Vancouver Island.Submission information is available at PORTALS in the Island Savings Centre. In-person registration takes place

from Wednesday, April 2 to Saturday, April 5 at PORTALS. All pieces submitted to the show will be juried by three professional jurors. Thirty-five pieces will then be selected as “The Best of the Best” to be displayed in PORTALS during the month of May. The 44th edition of the annual Cowichan Valley Fine Arts Show runs April 30 to May 4 at the Island Savings Centre and is generally recognized as the valley’s best and one of the biggest on Vancouver Island. For more information on viewing or showing, call the CVAC office at 250-746-1633 or visit the CVAC website, cowichanvalleyartscouncil.ca.

BOUDREAU, Sherri Lynn

RAMSEY, Fred Creswell

Passed away peacefully at the Cowichan District Hospital on March 19, 2014. Sherri was born in Victoria on April 30, 1961. She will be lovingly remembered by her family; husband Thomas, children Amy and Dylan, brother Lance (Patti) and sister Kim (Dave). The family wishes to thank the staff at Cowichan District Hospital, Sunridge Place, Mount Tolmie Residential Care, Cowichan Home Support and Dr. Lorna Cutt for their professional care and support. A Celebration of her Life will be held at the New Life Baptist Church, 1839 Tzouhalem Rd, North Cowichan, BC from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm on Saturday, March 29, 2014 with the formal service starting at 11:00am. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

H.W. Wallace 5285 Polkey Rd. 250-701-0001 BROWN, Margaret Dianne (nee Hudson) Born November 2, 1941, at Grace Hospital, Vancouver and passed away on March 25, 2014 at Cairnsmore Place, Duncan. Dianne moved to Duncan at the age of 8 and spent her school years at Duncan Elementary and Cowichan High Schools. She was the proud Chartered Honored Queen of Bethel 38, International Order of Job’s Daughters. After completing high school, she worked in Victoria at the BC Motor Vehicles Branch for a short time before returning to Duncan where she was employed as a secretary at BC Forest Products Pulp and Paper Mill for 38 years. Her hard work, efficiency and sunny personality gained her the respect of all who had the good fortune to know her. Dianne took great pride in being a terrific cook, a fine home maker and hostess and most of all, the terrific wife of her beloved husband, Jim Brown of 45 years. Together, they curled, boated, golfed and camped for many years at Tall Timbers, Sproat Lake. Her Brindle Boxers were as great a joy to her as she was to them. Jim and Dianne travelled the world spending many winters in Mexico and visiting relatives in Scotland, and cheering on the teams at the Brier Curling championships. Winter holidays in Texas, Caribbean and Hawaiian Cruises were anticipated with her usual enthusiasm. Another of Dianne’s passions was spending time with her nieces and nephews. She took a keen interest in their lives and loved having them around. She understood there were family stories that auntie’s needed to pass on to the next generation and that parents preferred to forget. Charming stories abound full of family lore and fun. Dianne was known as the shy one of the Hudson family. But when the eyes twinkled and the mouth giggled, the stage was set for the wry comments that would surely follow. Her infectious laughter and her spunky spirit will be missed by all. Dianne was predeceased by her parents, Archie and Mary Hudson, and sister in-law, Marlene Hudson. She leaves to mourn and celebrate her life, her husband and love of her life, Jim Brown, her brothers Doug (Marilyn), Port Alberni; Alan and Jim Hudson, Duncan; and sister, Trish McInnes of Courtenay, five nieces and two nephews, and many dear friends.

Born May 6, 1930, Fred passed away peacefully on March 21, 2014. Predeceased by his father Edward, mother Barbara, brothers Bud and Dick. He is survived by all of his children Steven, Glenn (Denise), Darrell, Gloria (Don), Debbie (Gordie), Sharon (Dean), and Keith. Fred lived and breathed for his grandkids Chad, Andrea, Bradley, Kurtis, Jeannine, Justin, Coral, Pam, Shannon and great grandkids Dameon, Hunter, Ryker, Kate, Chloe, Preston, and Courtney. Fred came from a big family - brothers Ken, Don, Bill, and Lenard, sisters Peggy, Barb, Isobell and Noreen. We would like to give a big thank you to Fred’s lifelong friend, Harold Mayea, for everything he did including all the visits with Fred up until his day of passing. Fred and Harold joined the army in 1950-1954. Fred went on and served in the Korean War. Fred worked and retired after 28 years at Chemainus Mill, then was a backyard mechanic for many years at his own home. Fred’s family would also like to thank Lana Ketch for all she did for their dad; all the nurses and staff from Lodge on 4th for everything they did to make Dad’s stay there comfortable - you all looked after him with such love. A celebration of Fred’s life will be held at the Eagle’s Hall on Jacobs Rd on Saturday, May 3, from 1-4 pm. As Fred would say “Come join us for tea and a snort.� FRIESEN, Joyce Passed away peacefully on March 25, 2014 at her home in Duncan, B.C. Joyce was born on August 12, 1932 in Dundurn, Saskatchewan. Beloved wife of 62 years to Alfred. Loving mother to Alvin and his wife Chris and Brent and his wife Tanya. Dear granny to Matthew, Jesse, Chelsea, Kiera (Ryan), Dylan and Jordan and great granny to Devon and Ila. Sister to Thelma, Jessie, Colleen, Kathleen and the late Art, Jack and Vernon. Joyce will also be sadly missed by her many nieces, nephews and friends. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. Memorial donations to the B.C. Children’s Hospital (1 888 663-3033) will be appreciated. One night I had a dream-I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord and across the sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints, one belonged to me and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back at the footprints in the sand. I noticed that many times along the path of my life, there was only one set of footprints. I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in my life. This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk with me all the way, but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life there is only one set of footprints. “I don’t understand why in times when I needed you most, you should leave me.� The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never, never leave you during your times of trial and suffering. “When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.� On line condolences can be made at www.hwwallacecbc.com

PARKER, Richard Allan December 22, 1956 – March 22, 2014 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our brother, Rick, at Sunridge Place. He was predeceased by his brother, Brian and both parents, Robert Parker and Therese Parker. He will be sadly missed by his siblings John, Dave (Barb), Joan (Doug), Stephen (Josephine), Margaret, and Elaine (Sean). Rick leaves behind many nieces, nephews and a large extended family. Although he was challenged with many burdens in life, he was always there to lend a helping hand to others. He touched many lives in positive ways throughout his life. Rick always found great solace in fishing the local lakes and rivers. Rick will be remembered by many in the Valley for his smile and great sense of humour. Thank you to the staff at Sunridge Place for Rick’s care. A special thank you to Sarah, Yolanda, and Van. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

PETTY, Harold 1928-2014 Born in Selby, Yorkshire England Harold passed away on Thursday, March 20th at 5:21 p.m. at the Cowichan District Hospital diagnosed with Acute Myologenous Leukemia, after a 15 year remission. He leaves behind his wife of almost 30 years Marjorie, his three daughters Candy, Kim and Michelle, and six grandchildren, and his sisters Yvonne and Nancy. He always said that he ran away to sea at the age of 16 and became a Boy Seaman in the Royal Navy. His other designations were: Able Seaman, Royal Canadian Navy, Home Port Halifax, Nova Scotia. Aircrew Safety Equipment Technician. Leading Seaman, Royal Canadian Navy, aboard Aircraft Carrier HMCS Magnificent, North Atlantic Ocean. Joint NATO naval forces War Games summer 1950.

In 1993 with his current wife Marjorie, he sailed from San Diego, California to Florida, USA. When he couldn’t sail any more, he bought a motor on the Thames, London England, crossed the channel and cruised the canals of France for five years. As he was a Yorkshire Viking, we wish him a safe journey to Valhalla, he is now in the safe hands of the Valkyries.

ADVERTISE in the LARGEST OUTDOOR PUBLICATION IN BC The 2014-2016 BC Hunting Regulations Synopsis

H.W. Wallace

We, the family of Mr. Fred Ramsey of Duncan, would like to put forth our deepest, heartfelt thanks to all the staff of the Sandpiper section at Lodge on 4th, in Ladysmith. Our father, Fred ,spent over two years there, and during that time their caring and professionalism never wained for an instant. During the final days they welcomed our family, day and night, and catered to all of our needs. They moved Fred down to the office so they could keep a watchful eye on him and make him as comfortable as possible. Without the staff these times would have been difficult indeed, but they were truly ours, and Fred’s guardian angels.

Edna was a longtime member of St. John’s ACW and Women’s Aglow, serving on many executive boards faithfully. She was a great cook, exceptionally skilled in Fine Needlework and an avid reader. She will be sorely missed by her family and the staff at Sunridge. She leaves behind her daughter Liz (husband Bob Moss), son Miles (wife Lorraine), five grandsons: Tristan and Alex Moss, and Tanner, Noah and Amish Dobson and one great grandson Caius Moss.

A man of faith and a loving servant of the Lord was ‘Promoted to Glory’ on March 22nd 2014 in Cobble Hill. Wilf was born Oct 26th 1932 in Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa to Salvation Army Missionary parents. He gave his heart to the lord at the early age of 4 years. He apprenticed as a Marine Engineer at the Shipyards in Cape Town, South Africa where he met Jean and married in 1955 and then moved to Canada. Wilf joined the Canadian Navy in 1958. In 1966 he was commissioned as an Officer and served on several navy ships and submarines as Engineering Officer both on the East and West Coasts. He retired from the Canadian Navy in 1983 in Halifax and settled in Cobble Hill, BC. In his retirement he was a well-respected businessman. As a man of faith, he was actively involved in ministry. He was passionate about spreading the gospel story through music. He served as Bandmaster and Songster leader and was involved with several Quartets and musical groups, giving 70 years of ministry. In more recent years he served as bandmaster of The Brass Ensemble and visited Care Homes and brought joy and comfort to the lives of many through his gospel music and his guitar. A devoted husband, father and Papa to his family. Deeply loved by Jean of 58 years, his sisters Shirley (David) and Julia. He will be greatly missed by his children Sharlene, Dalene (Ted), Erik (Linda), 5 grandchildren and other extended family members here in BC, in Denmark and South Africa. Funeral service will be held at the Salvation Army Victoria Citadel, 4030 Douglas St. (at McKenzie) on Sunday March 30th, 2014 at 3pm with a reception following.

Hard drive for another B.C. title taking shape

Renewed focus: Returnees acknowledge every year in quest of rugby glory is different

Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

D

efending a provincial title is a whole new experience for the Cowichan Secondary School senior girls’ T-Bird rugby team. Cowichan finally took the crown away from perennial champion Carson Graham last year and would love nothing more than to be the cream of the AAA crop again. But the girls and coach Brad Skene acknowledge a lot of things have to happen between now and the provincial tournament for the team to make a serious challenge. The unknown is how the newcomers will blend together with the returnees who have championship status under their belts. “There’s always going to be some similarities but it’s a lot different as well,’’ said returning co-captain Adrienne Saari about comparing teams from one year to another. “We just have to work with what we have. We’re a bigger team, do more pounding. You’re going to have to work different players and see what works best with this group.’’ “I think we’re fast,’’ said Darien Hobday, the team’s other returning co-captain. “I think we lost different strengths. This year, it’s pretty different.’’ Saari was blunt about putting the previous title in context. “It’s completely behind us,’’ she said. “Just because we won last year doesn’t have anything to do with this year.’’ That simply means lots of hard work has to be done to

get there again and the girls are well aware of that. “The returning players understand the standard that they need to perform at to be successful at the highest level,’’ noted Skene. “Even though we lost a lot of rugby experience, we have gained a large group of athletes who are fast and agile. “There is a lot of potential for 2014 but we need to find the right combinations and roles. Last year, roles and lineups were quickly established. Our players need to develop quickly under the pressure of being the defending champions.

It’s definitely a lot more pressure, but just showing myself I need to work hard to get what I want.’’ “Keep working hard and see what happens,’’ Grade 12 player Alison Franks said will be crucial. An interesting development with the School District 79 reconfiguration is how girls can actually start on the team on an expanded roster in Grade 8 and Skene feels that’s been very positive for the program, combined with the B.C. title. “We have over 40 players, with 22 new recruits, in the program and field both a full junior and senior team,’’ he

Great return to game action for girls

Stellers secure Cowichan’s lone field hockey final berth News Leader Pictorial

Overtime magic: Keller provides the goal needed for the team to advance

hree of Cowichan’s four teams made the semifinals of the Vancouver Island Ladies’ Field Hockey Association playoffs. Div. 3 Cowichan Kestrels were the only team that didn’t make it, mainly due to injuries to key players. The only team to reach the final was the Div. 3 Cowichan Stellers with an overtime victory against the Ravens. Stellers were on the defensive early against the Ravens, made up primarily of ex-Cowichan players. But Craig turned the tables

by scoring on a brilliant penalty corner just inside the post and Ashton Aumen followed with a perfectly-placed baseline shot past the keeper after numerous unsuccessful penalty corner attempts by Cowichan. Ravens replied with a goal and then were awarded a penalty stroke that they converted for the tie to send the game into overtime. The Stellers secured the victory in the early moments of sudden death from a penalty corner, with April Keller tipping it in. The Stellers face Lynx III Saturday in the final. Div. 1 Flickers finished third in the league

and met the Lynx I in semifinal action. Flickers played their best game of the season, with team members supporting each other with crisp passing and showing a desire to score. Lynx I opened the scoring on a penalty corner, leaving rookie goalkeeper Robin Flemming no chance. But the Flickers’ Ali Andersen tied the game late in the second half on a penalty corner. With only 10 minutes remaining, the Flickers gave up an own goal that ricocheted off a defender in a 2-1 loss. The Cardinals placed fourth in Div. 2 and

faced the Sailors in the semifinals. Cardinals got off to a fast start, with Hannah Craig scoring on a penalty corner in the first five minutes. The Sailors drew even at halftime. The Cardinals had the attacking advantage in the first half, but the Sailors came on strong in the second half with two goals. The Cardinals didn’t give up and fought back to tie on goals by Shylayne Davidson and Michelle Purchase in the dying minutes to send the game into overtime. In the early minutes of overtime, the Sailors scored to win 4-3. The Cardinals showed great team spirit in the tough loss to finish the season on a high note.

Cowichan LMG goes for Jackson Cup title Sunday against Saanich Fusion

Got a sports story? email sports@cowichannewsleader.com phone 250-856-0045

SpoRTS wATCh

The stage is set for a soccer battle of titanic proportions. Cowichan LMG Pringle hopes to rekindle the feeling of hoisting the Jackson Cup, last experienced in 2012, when it takes on the arch-rival Saanich Fusion Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at Victoria’s Royal Athletic Park.

Cowichan is sure to receive a boost from its many supporters who always make the trip for the game. Coach Glen Martin has been working out the fine details with his team in practices leading up to the game. “No excuses, the preparation’s good,’’ he said.

And Cowichan isn’t hampered by any injuries. The Fusion has beaten Cowichan twice this season. “I’d say they’re slightly favoured, but it’s pretty close,’’ said Martin. “But we’re a grass field team so that helps us.’’

Hockey for the pure enjoyment

Second time the charm

Ryan Clark Memorial: The 15 teams gathering in honour of a young man who loved the game make it memorable Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

R

yan Clark would have been proud to know about the honour bestowed upon

him. The young man, tragically killed in a car accident, loved hockey. The ultimate tribute to him is getting people together to enjoy the game. The fifth-annual Ryan Clark Memorial Midget C tournament at Fuller Lake and Cowichan Arenas Friday through Sunday attracted 15 teams for some great hockey and camaraderie among Island and Lower Mainland teams. “There was no incidents,’’ said Kathy Irving, who handled the Fuller Lake portion of the event with husband Dale while Kristen Arnold looked after the ac-

tion in Duncan. “Only one game misconduct for the whole tournament,’’ added Kathy Irving. We just emphasized playing hockey. “We raised lots of funds for the Ryan Clark Benevolent Fund.’’ The exact amount that will assist families in need of financial support to equip someone for hockey still has to be tallied. But if last year’s $6,000 raised is any indication, it should be in that range again. As for the game action, coach Darren Rasmussen’s Fuller Lake Flyers team took the championship with a 6-4 win over Abbotsford in Sunday night’s final. The Flyers dodged a bullet against the wild card Duncan team coached by Adam Taylor and John Butler in the preceding semifinal with a tight 7-6 victory.

Girls’ provincials: Queen of Angels Grade 9 basketball team shows plenty of spunk Don Bodger

Great save is made by Capitals’ goalie Justin Butler on a close-in backhand shot by Nick Mrus of the Flyers in an allCowichan semifinal game at Fuller Lake Arena in the Ryan Clark Memorial hockey tournament. The goalies were the centre of attention, playing the position with pride and a sense of accomplishment in Clark’s honour. Abbotsford won the other semifinal over Nanaimo involving division winners. With Clark being a goalie, the major prize of the tournament was focused on that position. Joey Pastro of Abbotsford stood on his head in the last game, stopping 70 shots, to earn the goalie award.

MVP towels were awarded in each game to both teams and every player received a hoodie with a goalie silhouette. Andrew Young, a member of Clark’s graduating class, again organized all the timekeepers and scorekeepers that required a great deal of work. The response was entirely

positive from participants and their families. “I just had lots of emails from people saying they had a good time and the thirdyear players really appreciated it,’’ said Irving. Doug Webber also ran a Bantam C tournament in conjunction with the main event.

Eager kids assemble for annual football camp Guest of honour: Having B.C. Lions’ Adam Bighill around just intensifies the interest among young players at two-day event Don Bodger

Defensive techniques are demonstrated by B.C. Lions’ Adam Bighill, above, during Sunday Cowichan football camp sessions at Duncan Christian School that attracted a lot of players, far right.

t’s always a big deal with a Canadian Football League player takes the time to give young players pointers. And the second straight appearance by Adam Bighill of the B.C. Lions at the Cowichan Valley Football Association’s spring camp attracted a large number of youngsters eager to learn from the all-star linebacker, backed up by numerous club and out-town coaches. “He was great with the kids, cheering them on,’’ said Cowichan Valley Football Association president Loretta Copley. “We had one of our best camps ever. We had a huge turnout.’’ About 70 kids of all ages took part in the two-day camp, including some from the Lower Mainland. It’s great timing since the spring season begins this weekend with a Jamboree in Victoria. The regular season for Pre-Atom, Atom and Peewee teams starts the following weekend. Meanwhile, Brock Gowanlock and Eric Williams were the Cowichan players selected for the prestigious Senior Bowl with practices on the B.C. Lions’ facility.

T

he Queen of Angels Grade 9 girls’ basketball team had a great experience playing at the provincials, according to coach Ciaran McLaverty. “Most of the girls had the opportunity to play their second consecutive provincial tournament this time around, and a large number of them will also go on to play at Cowichan Secondary and Gulf Islands next season in the junior or possibly senior programs,’’ he added. “It has been a terrific season for Queen of Angels basketball.’’ The team opened provincial tournament play at the Richmond Oval against No. 2 seed Lord Tweedsmuir from Surrey and had a tough start but played well in the second half, holding the scoring edge for most of it in the eventual loss. Maddie Mahon was selected player of the game. The second match against Winston Churchill from Vancouver was also characterized by a poor start, but with an excellent second half when Queen of Angels had the scoring advantage but the final result was another loss. Mackenzie Cleaves was recognized as player of the game. Chilliwack Middle School was the opponent in the third game and Queen of Angels stayed close, but fell 38-29. Isabelle Spiess received player of the game honours. The last tournament game was a thriller against Windermere of Vancouver. Queen of Angels led from the start but fell behind in the fourth quarter and made it close again in a 44-41 decision. Queen of Angels missed a three-pointer with two seconds left. Joelle Antufeaff, a Grade 8 student returning next year, was player of the game.

Capsule Comments

S

ome people use garlic (fresh or in capsules) as a supplement. Although there is little evidence it lowers blood pressure, it does have short-term effects on cholesterol and blood clotting. It is recommended that those people on blood-thinning medication not use high doses because of the increased risk of bleeding. Also high doses of garlic should be stopped 1-2 weeks before major surgery. There are many suggestions for curing hiccoughs. Some work and some don’t. One new way, which may seem a little extreme, evidently works really well, especially for people who hiccough for long periods of time. The method is called digital rectal stimulation and means just what it says. Using a surgical glove or even kitchen plastic wrap on a finger and massage the inside of the rectum. Hiccoughs should stop within minutes. Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is becoming a more common problem. Listening to very loud music in earphones even for a short time can damage those tiny sensory hair cells in the inner ear and cause hearing impairment. Keep the sound down in earphones to avoid damage.

Here are four ways of preventing cancer. 1. Don’t smoke. 2. Eat sensibly: heavy on fruits and vegetables, limit fat, alcohol only in moderation. 3. Maintain a healthy weight. 4. Don’t deliberately bake yourself in the sun. These are easy to understand but often hard to do. But they definitely reduce your risk of cancer.
