Doug Trumble honoured as Victoria Minor Hockey Coach of the Year Laura Lavin News staff
Firefighter Doug Trumble was recently honoured as Victoria Minor Hockey Coach of the Year, and he says it’s all thanks to his teammates – at the fire hall. “I hadn’t been head coach before because of the shift work,” said Trumble. “The guys at work covered for me and made it possible for me to be the head coach. I work nights and weekends and that makes it hard, if I had a morning practice, guys would stay late or come in early to cover for me. They would trade shifts with me, do weekends. A lot of guys pitched in and made this possible for me.” Trumble grew up in Oak Bay playing hockey from age five. He rose through the ranks of Oak Bay Minor Hockey to play with the Junior B Saanich Braves. He continues to play the sport with a men’s

The question is asked every day and astigmatism is, without doubt, one of the most misunderstood refractive disorders. Optometrists agree that astigmatism has various causes. While some theories claim it is hereditary, others state it is developmental. Both opinions are almost certainly correct. The most common form of astigmatism is due to the clear front part of the eye, the cornea, not being round. This “out of round” of the cornea causes distortion of the focussed light, which in turn causes blurred vision at all distances. An uncorrected astigmatic eye is constantly trying to improve its focus. This is tiring and can cause headaches especially during precise visual work. Most patients are surprised to learn that the majority of people have at least a small amount of astigmatism. The amount of astigmatism will determine the severity of the visual complaints. Most people can go for years without realizing that they have a problem. If one has never seen clearly, it is difficult to comprehend what clear vision truly is. Fortunately both spectacles and contact lenses can correct astigmatism, and recently, refractive surgeons have added astigmatism corrections with lasers to their services. When astigmatism is first corrected a period of adaptation and adjustment is to be expected. Objects may look distorted or slanted but clear. After a few days the strange symptoms will subside. It took the brain years to get used to the “old vision” so it will take a while for the “new vision” to settle. It is very important to correct significant astigmatism in children. They may not complain, but uncorrected astigmatism can often cause poor performance at school. Don’t forget; first eye exam by age three. A regular eye examination with the optometrist is the best way to monitor astigmatism in patients of all ages.

Vaccines not just for kids In the past 50 years, vaccinations have saved more lives than any other health intervention. Vaccines are very safe, safer than therapeutic medicines and far safer than the consequences of the diseases that they protect against. They are also highly cost-effective. For example, for every $16 invested into providing the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine to children, a life is saved. This can be compared to other effective public health interventions such as driver and passenger air bags, which cost $61,000 per life saved, or smoke detectors in homes at $210,000 per life saved. But vaccines are not just kids’ stuff. Adults need them, too. While some vaccines provide lifelong protection after a short series of shots, certain vaccines need booster doses, most notably tetanus, which should be received every 10 years. Other vaccines are only routinely recommended once one becomes a senior. Young adult women are now being offered the HPV vaccine, which protects against 70 per cent of the causes of cervical cancer. Unlike other vaccines, the influenza vaccine is given annually. This vaccine is formulated each year based on the types of circulating influenza viruses that are causing the most serious disease. Response to the vaccine is best in healthy individuals and only partially effective in people who are frail, elderly or have significant chronic diseases. This is why it is so important for healthy people who live with or care for those most at risk of severe outcomes from influenza to also get the vaccine. If you are travelling abroad, going back to college, pregnant, entering into a health-care profession or have any chronic underlying health conditions, you should ask your physician or call your local public health unit to find out which vaccines are recommended for you. The best reason to get vaccinated is that it protects you, and it protects the people around you. This is an important concept because vaccinated individuals become a ring of protection around the most vulnerable people in our families and communities, such as infants and children, the elderly and those with chronic diseases. Vaccines have been a powerful tool to reduce disease, disability, death and inequities for people of all ages and in all places. But they can only work if people continue to be vaccinated.

The town is on restricted lakeshore terrain and the council wants to increase its urban zone, using the community need provisions that are enhanced by the current legislative amendments. This was after a loud demonstration organized with the help of a fake grassroots protest machine called LeadNow, complete with slick signs and website. (LeadNow also helped round up anti-pipeline protesters this past weekend.) The media were fooled as usual, but not Summerland council. LeadNow has moved on to lining up people to flood the Agricultural Land Commission with form letters and petitions against Summerland’s plan. The B.C. Agriculture Council, whose board first supported and then objected to the ALR amendments, has clarified its objections. It wants flexibility for secondary uses extended to the prime farmland zones of the Okanagan, Fraser Valley and southern Vancouver Island.

Don’t be fooled Wheels don’t stop Congratulations! I could hardly believe my eyes that a newspaper would print such a clear cutting analysis of what has been going on. It is as though the media has thought their job was to hold a curtain in front of Oz. The letter held such a roll call of beautiful phrases: “Emergence of sociopaths in positions of near absolute power.” “No sky-hook to rescue us.” “Mandatory psychological testing of all candidates, with stringent passing standards.” “Not going to be contributions from the failed priesthoods of religion and economics.” The letter was full of strong images and it is time we got used to them and started using them. Canadians have acquiesced to being led around by the nose for too long. It is time to challenge the false gods of religion, economics (and, may I add, sports). Invented gods may help us feel good for a time, but they do not prepare us to handle the urgent issues we are facing now. Kathleen Stewart Oak Bay

Re: On the Road, Rick Anthony’s article Big Wheels must stop at the red octagon, (Opinion May 2). I was very glad to see that article, but from the look of things the drivers that continue to run stop signs in Oak Bay aren’t listening or reading. I live on Currie Road, just behind the Oak Bay Marina, and walk almost everywhere I go. The two main stop signs that I see everyday, Currie and Beach Drive and Windsor and Beach Drive, whether you’re turning right or left, are the worst. Today on one on my walks, I stood at the rail on the ocean side at the bottom of Windsor and watched the traffic coming up to those two stop signs. One in 10 cars actually stopped. The rest used it as a yield sign. Andrew Madding Oak Bay

POLICE NEWS IN BRIEF
Boaters beware of thefts A string of marinerelated thefts have slowly made their way across Oak Bay. Sometime overnight on May 6 or 7, an older, grey, fiberglass canoe was stolen from the property of a 500block Beach Dr. home. Later that same evening, police received a report of thefts from the Oak Bay Marina including four expensive fishing rods and reels stolen from a storage locker. The padlocks were cut to gain entry. Several newer crab traps were also taken from beside another boat. The nautical thefts continued at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club at approximately 11 a.m. on May 11 with the pilfering of an eightfoot dingy with a three horse power Nissan boat motor. The dinghy was found abandoned at Cattle Point several hours later, but the motor is still missing. Anyone with any information on these incidents is asked to contact the Oak Bay Police Department at 250-592-2424.

Zacharias may be a familiar name to those interested in kayaking, he made a solo journey 1500 kilometres around Vancouver Island in 2004 – a 52-day trip. “That was a tougher trip,” said Campbell. “He experienced open ocean the entire time.” Campbell described the Alaska journey as unremarkable. “People do it every year. For all the years we’ve been paddling we’ve talked about doing it, when a couple of the guys retired this spring we thought ‘it’s probably the time to do it – we’re not getting any younger. We paddle every week, we’re in shape, let’s make it so.’” After a few months of planning, including preparing and drying 53 meals and shipping items ahead to Campbell River, Shearwater and Prince Rupert, the men were joined at their launch by a few members of the South Island Sea Kayaking Association (SISKA) a non-profit organization dedicated to sea kayaking on Vancouver Island. “This definitely

Victoria resident Alan Campbell launches from Willows Beach for a three-month journey by kayak to Juneau Alaska. Campbell and his two fellow kayakers, David Maxwell and Rob Zacharias, left Oak Bay on May 8 and plan to return by July 30. To track their progress check siska.ca and click on North To Alaska. took more advanced planning that what we’ve attempted previously,” said Campbell, explaining each summer the group takes an extended trip of up to two weeks with their kayaks. “The logistics of this one are significant but hundreds of people have done it. For many Americans it’s an epic journey that people dream of. We were able to consult others
who have done it. … We’ve come to terms with the fact that we can’t carry enough food.” They also added layover days, breaks from five- to six-hour days of paddling in the 84-day journey that will see them travel up the inside passage to Juneau, Alaska. They will then return home via the Alaska Ferry to Bellingham, Washington. At that point they will paddle

from Bellingham back to Willows Beach, arriving home on July 30. “David Maxwell is the one who put the idea forward to paddle from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy. … We thought that was a big enough trip, then decided if we’re going to do that and be away for that long, why not paddle up the Island? Then, if we could go to Prince Rupert, why not Alaska? … The idea
expanded a bit, that’s probably how it got to be 80 days,” said Campbell. “Alaska is unknown to us. We’ve not paddled there. We’re assuming it’s going to be similar to here, a long, island-filled coast with more wildlife, more unpredictable weather. But I predict it will be lots of fun. … and it might inspire others to extend themselves a bit.” email@example.com
