Tenth anniversary of Music Monday celebrated in Sooke Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

Did you hear the angels singing? All of Sooke’s elementary schools recently got together to celebrate Music Monday. École Poirier had a school-wide assembly where they watched the live webcast from Ontario with Commander Chris Hadfield on May 5. The webcast ended with a synchronized nationwide performance of I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing?) with former Canadian Space Agency Astronaut Chris Hadfield, led by Maestro Bramwell Tovey of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. Poirier hosted John Muir’s choir and the two choirs performed together at the assembly. In addition, Poirier students sang their school song, Join In at Poirier. In the afternoon, all of the Sooke zone elementary choirs (Poirier, Sooke, Sasseenos and John Muir) met on the lawns in front of the Evergreen Centre near the kiosk. They performed a few songs together en masse, and then each group headed out to do a circuit of singing throughout Sooke.

Music Monday marks a special day in May when many Canadians celebrate music in their lives and schools. Many schools in the Sooke School District have participated in this event in past years by singing in their schools or coming together with other schools via Skype or in person. A part of Music Monday’s purpose is to remind the policy-making adults in the world of the valuable contribution music programs give to our students. In a video posted on the MusicCanada.com website, Commander Hadfield articulated his thoughts. “I bought my first record at about nine or 10 years old, and listening to music introduced me to cultures and people who were different than I was. And learning to play the guitar taught me to improvise and to be creative, and to be able to be play with a group. And practicing on that guitar, that taught me selfdiscipline. And these were all fundamental skills that I have used throughout my career. And that’s why I can confidently say that music helped me be a better astronaut.”

Last January Marina Miral was notified that she was a candidate for a space mission to Mars. Over 200,000 candidates were screened for the mission from which they would never return. Mars One is a private enterprise set up to establish a permanent colony on the red planet. Those who go will never return to their earthly home but spend the rest of their lives on the planet. The project needs an estimated $6 billion in funds. On May 6, it was announced that Miral was among the 54 Canadians who made the next round. There are 705 astronaut candidates from a list of 1,058 potential colonists. The remaining candidates advance to an interview round. There are 287 women and 418 men selected from the latest cut. Mars One plans to launch its first crew of four Mars colonists in 2024, with additional crews joining them in two-year increments. Miral is 31 years old and will be over 40 before she ever lands on Mars. If all goes according to plan, Miral will spend the next 10 years training for life in the space colony. Training begins in 2015. Miral’s mother Angela Dorsey said she is still very intent on going.

Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

A few weeks ago, we introduced Sooke News Mirror readers to Kayla Curtis, a Grade 11 student at EMCS (“EMCS student represents Sooke” April 16, 2014). Kayla was attempting to do what many people fear more than death: she would compete in the finals of a Public Speaking Contest sponsored by the Rotary Club of Royal Oak Centennial. The finals, in which six students from school districts 61, 62 and 63 competed, took place on May 7. We’re pleased to announce that Kayla won third place, and received a $500 scholarship. As announced on the superintendent’s website, Kayla won “for her eloquent speech on the topic of violence in the media and its impact on society. She had stiff competition as all six finalists did a great job of their presentations at Spectrum Secondary.” As we reported earlier, Kayla won her place in the finals through a presentation on why university tuition in Canada should be free, highlighting other countries like Finland where tuition fees have been abolished.

Quack! Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets for the 8th Annual Rubber Duck Race & Juvenile Diabetes Awareness Day on May 10th. It was a Great Day! All the little kids had fun, the ducks swam in the right direction and we raised over $7000 for Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan & Juvenile Diabetes.

Building of the new $1.8 million fire hall in East Sooke will begin in June and it is expected to be completed in eight to 10 months. It took over four years from planning to awarding the contract. At the Capital Regional District board on Wednesday, May 14, a contract was awarded to Verity Construction. The construction company is the same one that built the Juan de Fuca Services building. The total cost of the fire hall and accompanying land, utilities, architects, etc, is $2.2 million. The residents of East Sooke passed

a referendum in 2013 enabling the project to move forward. Regional Director Mike Hicks “donated” $150,000 in gas tax revenue to extend the water to the fire hall. The building will be 7,000 sq. feet and built of pre-engineered steel. It will have six truck bays, a gear and radio room, kitchen, training room, washrooms and a hose tower. “I think this is an absolutely wonderful achievement for East Sooke,” said Juan de Fuca Area director Mike Hicks. He commended the past and present commissioners, Fire Chief Roger Beck, and Ben Martin who worked so

hard on this and said they deserved the gratitude of all of East Sooke. “It’s a tremendous achievement.” “Mike Hicks came up with an extra $20,000 for this,” said Brian White of the East Sooke Fire Commission. This comment was made in reference to additional costs that came up. However, after eliminating an out building and not paving a certain section, the East Sooke Firehall will still come in on budget. “We got it in, on budget,” said Dr. Brian White, Communications Director for the Fire Commission.

shanna Hamilton presents a cheque for $2,906 to the bC Children’s Hospital from sooke Community for Kids. Pictured are Calvin and riley smith, Ariah Cummings, and Jasmine baldwin, students of the Kids Art studio. The children also presented their paintings, called “Healing Hearts,” to the families of the hospital.

On Mother’s Day, a Sooke artist donated close to $3,000 to the BC Children’s Hospital. The funds Shanna Hamilton raised through donations from the Festival of Trees (held at SEAPARC) were presented to the BC Children’s Hospital on Mother’s Day. The cheque presentation was filmed by CHEK TV at the Baby Molly Memorial Family Fun Day at the Delta Victoria in Esquimalt. In total, a cheque for $2,906 was presented. Hamilton owns and operates the Kids Art Studio, which offers a range of classes here in Sooke. She also is the president and founder of the Kids Helping Kids donation program, which helps sick kids and their families in need. Starting in 2013 Kids Art Studio donates $1 to BC Children’s Hospital with each registration in the After School Art Program. Hamilton is an Art Instructor who teaches students of all ages. She says there is no age that can’t be taught how to paint and there is no better time to start then now. She also offers a mobile art program. Continued donations can be made through the BC Children’s Hospital events page (bcchf.ca/ events/community-events/) under KIDS ART STUDIO. For more information about her art courses or donation program, visit ShannaHamilton.ca

CounCil briefs The following items on the District of Sooke council agenda for May 14, 2014 were dealt with: • Council accepted the 2103 Audited Financial Statements, the School Tax Audit Report and the Provincial Home Owner Grant Audit Report audited by KPMG. The auditor, who spoke before council stated that the number of adjustments in the current year have been reduced and that was a good improvement for the district. • Ellen Lewers brought the attention of council to the parking issues around the Sooke Community Hall and made the suggestion that cars not park on Eustace Road for any longer than two hours. Staff were directed to look into this issue and see what options were available. • Council adopted

Bylaw 593, Property Tax Exemption for Church Halls and Church Land Amendment for Knox Presbyterian Church, 2110 Church Road. • Council gave third reading to the Open Air- Fire Protection Bylaw. There was some discussion on enforcement of excessive smoke. A definition of what constitutes “excessive smoke” will be sought. • Council unanimously adopted Bylaw 594, Five Year Financial Plan Bylaw, 2014 and Bylaw 595, Property Tax Rate Bylaw. Councillors Bev Berger and Kerrie Reay stepped out of chambers for this vote. Changes were made to the engineering salaries and benefits budgets for 2015-2018. The 2014 property tax rate for residential properties is 2.856 per $1,000 of taxable assessment, business is 6.888 and recreation and farm

properties are the same as for residential properties. There are also separate tax rates for the Vancouver Island regional Library, the Regional District and the Regional Hospital District. • Council endorsed the district’s Infrastructure Grant application for $28,000 for software for the Asset Manage-

ment Strategy, • A public hearing will be held to consider approval of a Modification Agreement to amend a covenant at 6669 Horne Road. The amendment is to delete an item which would have seen a erosion protection wall having to be built. A geotechnical report and geohazard assessment con-

cluded such a wall was not necessary. • Council directed staff to work with the Horseshoe Club and the public to determine an appropriate location for a 24-court horseshoe pitch and clubhouse at John Phillips Memorial Park. The original request was for .5 acres and has since grown to 1.6 acres

of park land. Council decided there were too many inconsistencies and too much land requested. JPMP is only 7 hectares in size. The club wanted to utilize the area to the south close to the new connector road site.

Our last week’s weather was fabulous. Gardens should be all planted, berries well-trimmed and mulched. I have a client who has just started to work with bees. When I showed him houses last week he told me he was on “swarm duty”. I had never heard of that before. We have a couple of young apple trees and I have noticed that there isn’t many bees around the blossoms… It has made me really think about pesticides and how the use of them does affect our birds & bees and things….

According to a press release issued by the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) — a partnership between BC Hydro, the Province of BC, Oceans Canada, First Nations, and local community groups — two projects have been award to the benefit of Jordan River. “Two projects aimed at rebuilding salmon stocks and creating dens for Black Bears in the Jordan River watershed will benefit from more than $62,000 in funding from the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program,” reads their May 5 release. “The salmon project will bring a range of stakeholders together to develop a restoration plan for fish, and fish habitat in the watershed,” it continues. “The Black Bear project will create manmade dens to simulate natural dens in large hollow trees, which are in decline in the area.” The projects will start in the spring and end by early 2015. The Salmon Project refers to a plan to be prepared by D. Burt and Associates from Nanaimo. Their short term goal is “to involve local land owners, stakeholders, First Nations, and agencies to support project objectives and encourage participating in future restoration initiatives.” To this end, D. Burt and Associates from Nanaimo received $34,631. David Burt has been involved with Jordan River since 2005, when he was awarded a BC Hydro contract to take an annual inventory of juvenile trout at 15 index sites between Elliott Dam and the Jordan River Generating Station tailrace. “I spent a lot of time putting various reports together,” said Burt, referring to the past nine years. “I’ve kind of made it my pet river.” He has worked closely with the Pacheedaht First Nation in compiling his findings, and will continue nurturing that relationship. “What I’ve observed over the years,” he said in conversation with the Mirror, “is that when you get the different user groups involved, when you get the logging companies involved, eventually they start to acquire the same knowledge and take a vested interest in helping with the river as well, and that starts to affect how they operate within the watershed.” The plan created in this phase will ultimately be used in Burt’s longer-term plan “for future restoration efforts in the lower Jordan River,” where a roundtable group of various shareholders will be established to work collaboratively in efforts to increase Jordan River’s fish stock. The second project, the Black Bear Project “will create Black Bear dens in existing forest structures, and evaluate opportunities for artificial den creation.” Helen Davis of Artimis Wildlife in Victoria will receive $27,723 for this first part of a two-part project. The Black Bear project is in response to the deforestation in the area, which has removed many of the large trees used by bears to build their dens. Davis said that they are just in the beginning steps of this project. “I’m still figuring things out and getting organized,” she writes in an email. “We haven’t actually done any work ‘on the ground’ yet.” However, she does plan to keep the Sooke News Mirror informed, and will provide photos when the first dens are situated.

Walk for guide dogs Man’s best friend, or a woman’s for that matter, are incredibly smart animals and they provide a extremely valuable service to people with disabilities. Dog guides are not just used by those with visual impairments, they are trained for people hard of hearing, those with medical or physical disabilities and for people with epilepsy, autism and Type 1 diabetes. These working dogs make a meaningful impact on the lives of the people they serve and make it possible for those with disabilities to have more independence and fun. Dog guides are trained for specific responses to medical issues by the Lions Foundation for Canada Dog Guides. For those with type 1 diabetes with hypoglycemic unawareness the dogs can detect sudden drops in blood sugar through scent thereby alerting the handler to ingest something sweet. For autism, they provide unconditional

love and calming relief for children in stressful situations. But training these helping dogs is not cheap. It cost $25,000 to train and place a dog guide and people who need their services get the dogs for free. On Sunday, May 25, dog lovers and residents in Sooke have the opportunity to participate in the Sooke Purina Walk for Dog Guides at Whiffin Spit. The five kilometer walk is organized by the Sooke Harbourside Lions.

One hundred per cent of the funds raised goes towards providing dog guides to Canadians in need. At the walk, participants have a chance to win a number of prizes including a year’s supply of pet food from Purina, two tickets to anywhere WestJet flies and a $500 Best Buy gift card. And, the best part, you don’t have to have a dog to participate in the walk, you can join in or donate online at: www.purinawalkfordogguides.com

Schooling in East Sooke This 1937 photo shows the second of three locations that accommodated East Sooke schools. Half a century after this, Bryan Mooney was operating a fish processing plant almost exactly on the same spot as this school, on East Sooke Road, a bit west of Ragley. The teacher in this photo is Mrs. Winnifred Mugford, who was married to Bert Mugford of Sooke, a longtime wireless operator on the Coast Guard’s Estevan. We believe the officiating gentleman is an Inspector of Schools called Mr. Gamble, who appears to be handing out awards at an annual school celebration event. The Union Jack is prominent in this scene, standing alongside the board and batten school building. An earlier one room school, established in 1888 stood near Seagirt and operated with a series of teachers until a shortage of students closed it down. In 1921 this school was built on an acreage leased from Lady Emily Walker and was operated until 1946. The Cameron Report on education in that year meant a number of changes were ahead for area schools, with consolidation into central larger schools, including the opening

EDITORIAL CARTOON

The long and short of four-year terms Okay, straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak, the local electorate will be voting in their candidates for a four-year term. It has been difficult to find out that information as Elections BC only deals with provincial elections not municipal ones. But Tom Moore, the top honcho dealing with municipal elections said it is definitely a four-year term beginning with the November 2014 election. The proposed change in elections in B.C. is waiting for Royal Assent. It’s now 100 per cent certain. So what does this mean for local voters? It could mean a number of things, some good, some not so much. Those who plan on running will be committed for four long years. That means meetings, meetings and more meetings, most likely 84 council meetings, 84 Committee of the Whole meetings and numerous in-camera meetings. And that doesn’t include the advisory committees or other organizational meetings. Forget about much of a private life. And on the down side, it will be difficult, if not impossible, to get someone off council for the length of their term. But, the up side of the whole situation is that hopefully we will have a new, enthusiastic council that can work together over four years to make things happen in Sooke. There would be enough time to set plans in action and get projects completed. Very few potential candidates have announced they are running and it is now six months to the election. Kerrie Reay has declared her intentions. How many second or third termers will we have? How many candidates for mayor? How many new faces on council? It is going to be very interesting to see if the “old guard” will be replaced or if locals like what they accomplished in the past three years. X will mark the spot.

ANOTHER VIEW

Aboriginal education or victim studies? B.C. Views The B.C. School Trustees’ Association is calling for a mandatory high school course on the history of residential schools set up to assimilate aboriginal children into European culture. Trustees propose a 25-hour course required for all graduating students, using interviews with residential school survivors, presentations by aboriginal leaders and discussion of current events. This would build on aboriginal courses already in offered in B.C. schools, and a public education effort that began with Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s 2008 apology and compensation for Canada’s residential school policy. B.C. Teachers’ Federation vicepresident Glen Hansman gave a speech on the need for mandatory education to a 2012 teacher conference. He said current aboriginal culture courses are poorly attended, and went on to denounce a school system he said is still based on “colonialism” and a “settler construct” of history. “We need to acknowledge that racism is the norm in public schools – still today,” Hansman said. Is it really? He also claimed that the purpose and legacy of the residential schools have been “deliberately hidden” from school curriculum. In lieu of evidence, Hansman recounted old anecdotes of American-style stereotyping from his own

schooling in Ontario. But mostly he demanded social engineering in schools that must of course include more funding, more teacher professional development time and an affirmative action program to recruit more aboriginal teachers. Do Hansman’s allegations reflect the kind of attitude that would lead to truth and reconciliation? Or are they signs of another unfortunate legacy, that of the victim studies mentality that permeates our universities? Here’s a suggestion for this mandatory course. Students could spend a couple of hours on one of the definitive works of B.C. aboriginal history, A Stó:lo Coast Salish Historical Atlas. A long-term project of the Stól:lo Nation, the atlas has meticulously documented chapters on European contact and residential schools, and others that piece together oral histories and what few written records there are of B.C. First Nations life at the time of European contact. A journal kept at Fort Langley from 1827 to 1830 documents some of the raids between aboriginal communities on the Fraser River and Vancouver Island, corroborating elders’ accounts. During those three years, Cowichan men attacked the Chilliwack Stó:lo community four times. In the same period, the journal records 30 incidents of inter-community violence, some reaching down to present-day Washington state. Atlas editor Keith Thor Carlson summarized the research this way:

“Viewed from the perspective of the aggressor, raids and attacks appear to have been motivated primarily by a desire to obtain quick wealth (in the form of slaves and property such as dried and smoked salmon) or to exact revenge for previous insults.” Archaeological study of stone fortifications and weapons at fishing sites in the Fraser Canyon traces a history of inter-community violence back at least 3,000 years. Historians characterize some of this as warfare. British colonial authorities had some “settler constructs” about these activities: they saw them as assault, robbery, abduction and murder as well as slavery. This is the seldom-discussed backdrop for the European settlement of British Columbia, the imposition of British law and the later establishment of church-run residential schools. None of this is to excuse the forced removal of aboriginal children from their families, the horrendous abuse and neglect or the multi-generational damage to a culture already weakened by waves of smallpox. This 1928 plan to fix what was called the “Indian problem” deserves to be understood by everyone. But glossing over historical context and presenting a guilt trip to students would serve no one well.

Good. I don’t like seeing money being thrown away. Pennies were just being thrown onto the ground.

I don’t miss them. Not one bit.

It was a good thing to do. It probably cost more to manufacture them than they were worth.

CHI initiative

goes back to 2013

It was with interest that members of the Sooke Region Community Health Initiative (CHI) read the article entitled “Doctors initiate survey on health care needs”, which appeared in the Sooke News Mirror on April 9, 2014. In fact, this community survey was launched in November 2013 in the Sooke region following the highly successful Community Forum on Primary Health Care Services that was cosponsored by CHI and the South Island Division of Family Practice. The survey questionnaire was distributed at the forum, and at locations throughout Sooke including the Sooke Family Resource Society and the West Coast Family Medical Clinic. In addition, the Sooke Region Community Resource Inventory promoted an online version. Approximately 140 surveys were completed by residents of Sooke and the surrounding areas, which we consider to be an excellent response to a lengthy questionnaire. South Island Division wishes to increase the response rate to the questionnaire by re-launching the survey in conjunction

Letter gets a laugh Had a great laugh today reading Keith Sketchley’s latest epistle, on this occasion in response to my criticism of Tom Fletcher, and his recent column disparaging the need for self-sufficient food regarding the ALR, why it doesn’t need protection, and essentially equating farming with strip-mining. I liked the title too. I suppose I should be flattered Mr. Sketchley chose to aim his poison pen at me, I must have really hit a nerve criticizing the great Mr. Fletcher, whose columns, it seems, are

one of the few pillars protecting our democracy from the always imminent takeover of a Marxist/Soviet Communist regime. BTW, I didn’t know the people of North Korea relied on food from “relatives in Communist China”, I was under the impression they were trying to establish all sorts of more normal engagement with South Korea. Mr. Sketchley’s letters frequent Black Press’ opinion pages, and sometimes even the Times-Colonist, giving, I’m sure, their readers a good laugh as well.   And who can forget the loyal readers of the old Monday Magazine, who apparently supported its “antihuman ugliness”!  Helene Harrison Shirley

Idiots parking on sidewalks To all the idiots parking on the sidewalk in front of the new Hope Building. As a taxpayer, I cherish what little sidewalks there are in Sooke, and take much exception to those who so blatantly deprive me of them. I have witnessed school children, elderly people with canes, and mothers with their baby carriages having to access the busy roadway on Sooke Road to get around the various

vehicles parked there. I make it my business to try to locate these proud owners to address my concerns and get various reactions, ranging from profanity to endless excuses. Last week a man from the fire department was parked on the sidewalk (no emergency); he told me he had to talk to someone and didn’t plan on being there long. BUT maybe it would have been long enough for someone to have gotten hit by a car when walking around his truck. I can’t understand why these people will not take responsibility for finding an appropriate place to park (P.S., there is a parking lot across the street). Or, do you find it too unsafe to walk across the roadway? I would like to point out to everyone: Whose responsibility will it be, then, if someone gets seriously hurt or event killed? Shame! Linda Bessant Sooke

they just don’t like us country bumpkins and our backwoods ways. They want to dismantle the local lifestyle and create their own dream state: the call of the wild imagination — a wilderness; where they will visualize the elusive bear in its natural habitat — Sooke. It’s not just that this “priceless wilderness” will not provide jobs or support out local economy, evident by all the suppression of any attempts to provide a tourist infrastructure, but that our local area will have become — “in fact” — somebody else’s philosophy, a truly virtual reality. Anyone who has been to Jordan River lately, can see the results of the tree hugger CRD alliance. To think that I used to buy groceries there and people stood in line to buy a hamburger at Shakey’s.

Sooke Garden Club

The T’Sou-ke Wasabi Project

Did you know that wasabi sold in grocery stores and served in restaurants outside of Japan is not wasabi at all? It is horseradish with food colouring (and maybe a little mustard). I happen to love horseradish (try tossing a large spoonful into your next batch of coleslaw) and always have some on hand. But I have also had and enjoyed what I thought was real wasabi, a Japanese condiment that generally accompanies sushi, sashimi and other dishes. I associate the ‘wasabi’ I’ve eaten with a somewhat different taste from that of horseradish, but nearly always with a vaguely similar, if more potent, kick. After all, wasabi is usually referred to as Japanese horseradish. To learn now that I’ve been both duped and shortchanged all these years has come as a huge disappointment. So what’s the deal here, anyway? What is real wasabi? What, if anything, is so special about it? Who grows it? Who sells it? Who buys it? Why is the market for wasabi just about to expand enormously? And, of course, why are consumers like me getting only faux wasabi,

and will an expanding market change anything in this regard? At this month’s meeting of the Sooke Garden Club, Andrew Moore will address all of these questions as he takes members on a journey, one that T’Sou-ke took to get to the point of growing half an acre of wasabi. Andrew Moore is

an architect who specializes in community development. He has worked extensively in the UK, Africa and Canada, and has facilitated numerous food security groups up and down the Island with visioning, strategic planning and implementation. Moore’s work revolves around sustainability projects related to

housing, renewable energy, food security, traditional knowledge, and economic self-sufficiency. His story of the journey taken by T’Sou-ke Nation, where he has worked for the past eight years to help transform a collective vision into reality, will touch on all of these aspects. Please join us on Wednesday, May 28, 7 p.m., at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church on Townsend Road. New members welcome. Annual fee: $15.

Teachers impact lives in many ways Nominate a great teacher Don Descoteau Blackpress

With the benefit of time and life experience, most adults can remember at least one grade school teacher who stood out among the rest and impacted their life for the better. Mine were in the field of music (thank you, Keith Fraser) and physed (likewise, Ed Ashmore), as they laid the groundwork for lifelong interests in both areas. In continuing our series celebrating the societal value of grade school teachers and the critical role they play in human development, we asked various community leaders to share some of their favourite experiences with educators from their past. We hope their stories resonate with you and prompt you to think about teachers from your own past. Tania Miller, music director, Victoria Symphony Orchestra – I grew up in a farming community of 1,000 people (Foam Lake, Sask.). When I was in high school, Grades 7 through 12, I had a social studies teacher named Ian Cooper who had an incredible passion for people and history. He had a big impact on me for the way he taught us about being a member of society and passionately following our dreams, to try and help us all know who we were and what we wanted to do. He was also a musician. He started a band in our school and taught everybody how to play guitar. There was that side of him that embraced the arts, which appealed to me, taught us to be passionate in a variety of different ways. I think the profound thing that he did for all of us was he made us want to be the best we could be. As a result of his impact,

and the other teachers at our school, I’d say probably 80 per cent of our class went to university. He pushed us to go farther. Guy Dauncey, Victoria author, sustainable futurist – I was at a boarding school in England (from age 13 to 18), and the music master there, his name was Tony Brown, was by far the greatest inspiration to me. Not only did he give us the greatest musi-

cal education, on Friday evenings he would invite us over for tea and talk philosophy with us. He would ask us things like, “Do we have free will?” and however we would answer, he’d proceed to point out precisely why the opposite was true. The lesson was, you’ve got to think things out for yourselves. We didn’t have any other classes that went remotely near (talking about) philosophy or the big questions of life, and the realization that the big questions of life don’t have black and white answers. Lillian Szpak, City of Langford councillor – I was an Air Force brat and we moved around every two to three years. My Grade 7 teacher at RCAF Centralia (Ontario) was Mr. Heimrich. He stands out for me because he encouraged me to write

creatively and to write poetry. He treated me like an adult, as if I had something to say that could affect others. He really shaped me that way. He was a very candid person and would

Teachers in my era were authoritative, but he was so different. Having the freedom to write what you want and how you want, and to share that without being judged, was really outside of the box. Frank Leonard, mayor of Saanich – I attended nine schools in my 12 school years since my father’s employer transferred us around B.C. I found it frustrating to be introduced  to a new class and often didn’t get involved in school activities since I hardly  knew  anyone.  However, my senior high school years at Mount View High School  on Carey Road  in Saanich were terrific and I attribute that not to an individual teacher but to the school’s administrators, principal Don Smyth and vice-principal Ken Brown.  They ‘recruited’ me into school activities like student council, refereeing the student/ teacher soccer game, reading morning announcements over the P.A. and running the Miss Mount View pageant.  I loved being active, yet it was the support of Don Smyth and Ken Brown that made it happen. I credit them with the experiences that gave me the confidence to later become involved in our community. Adam Olsen, former Central Saanich councillor, current interim B.C. Green Party leader – I was only ever in one of his classes, Grade 11 math at Stelly’s, but the example set by Peter Mason has always resonated with me. I

remember him saying, “One year I’m going to take a class of students to Mount Everest” and I remember it reverberated through the school. People had to think about “what is Everest?” It’s the highest peak of human achievement. And they went. I remember he came back and said ‘I’m going to build a climbing wall,’ and he was one of the people

responsible for the development of Boulders Climbing Gym, which continues to have a huge impact on our community and on our kids in Central Saanich. It’s always had a very, very significant impact on me. It’s about setting a goal, no matter how impossible it may seem to be, then going out and getting it. It’s a great analogy for life.

Happy Birthday to one of Sooke’s BEST and most BEAUTIFUL people Trina - You are truly an AMAZING person who always puts other people before herself. Trina you deserve nothing but the best as that is what you give. You bring so nuch happiness to so many and I know that you are loved by many. XO

On Friday, April 4, 19 students accompanied by the teacher Tuk, from Thailand arrived in Sooke. Part of the goal of the program is to share Thai culture with the community, and also to learn about our culture and community by taking part in different excursions, Canadian school classes and living with home stay families. Some of the students were assigned to Edward Milne community school and some of them to Journey middle school. In the past five weeks, they shared their culture and we shared ours with them. But the highlight of this cultural exchange program was the Thai Night, in which the students presented main aspects of their culture. The Thai Night took place on Wednesday, May 7. The evening involved eat-

ing Thai food (provided by Little Thai Place in Langford), as well as a celebration of Thai culture through performances and presentations put on by the Thai students in the EMCS theatre. They showed us some of their traditional Thai dances, Thai boxing — better known as Muay Thai — with the help of two Muay Thai champions, their famous water ceremony, and they also played popular Thai games with some of the audience. This night was important for us because, this year, we had the honour of having with us the Thai ConsulGeneral, Mrs. Sutthiluck Sa’ngarmangkang and her team of staff. They were impressed by what the Thai and Canadian students made up over the short time they were together; because of that, they are looking forward to see what else is possible. They are also willing to help, so the bond between Canada and Thailand

Palm trees are beautiful, did you just get one? Mine was stolen, most likely by a young male and female in a grey car seen in my driveway at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, May 12. They felt it was okay to walk into my backyard and steal the palm tree. The tree had a blue bow on it and it’s in a large round blue plastic container with white rope handles on each side

and man made holes in the bottom. It was a special gift and means a lot to me. If you see my palm tree, maybe your neighbour has shown up with a new plan tree in a blue container, or you received it as a late Mother’s Day gift, please call the Sooke RCMP so it can be returned to the rightful owner.

Auditions for haunting new play Pirjo Raits

Thom Southwood

Sooke News Mirror

Thom Southwood is calling it a “haunting new work.” Southwood, along with Donna, his creative partner in life and art, is fashioning After Life a new musical for the Sooke Harbour Players. “It centers around a young girl dying unexpectedly and her transition from her life to another place and the time in-between,” said Southwood. In 2009, Southwood, wrote Howl the Musical, a tale about werewolves and starcrossed lovers. This story is more complicated than Howl in that the young girl meets five beings who help her travel through this realm and onto the next. It’s an imaginary world, a kind of Oz world, said Southwood. And it’s not religious. Each realm has an overlord and they are Clown, Mirth, Charm, Atlas, Warrior and Sage all led by Host. Each of the realms, or characters, are based on her personality. There’s also a Queen of Heaven who

wants to hang onto souls. This time he has a number of very experienced people helping with the production. He mentioned designer Jill Sweet, who is new to Sooke, and has worked as a technical director and show designer for IMAX and Cirque du Soleil. She will be working with co-director Donna Southwood. Donna Southwood will deal with everything visual. Sharon Evans comes with extended experience as a choreographer, Mel Dobres is very familiar with marketing and Katherine Holmes takes the reins of social media. Sooke Harbour Player president Steve Anderson is working on the production end of things. Paul Holmes comes with an improv background and will take on an assistant director role. “We hope to take this one step further this

time,” said Southwood in regard to the marketing and production values. After Life will open on Halloween and be staged for three weekends. Southwood hopes he can tie this in to Safe Halloween. “It’s kind of an adult theme, there will be scary stuff but it will be an all ages show,” he said. The musical will workshop over the summer, but right now the players are seeking performers. Young kids six years of age and up who aren’t afraid of the dark and who themselves are real characters are sought. Southwood said they are looking for anyone that is a “triple threat” — actors who can sing, act and dance and one magic person to play that young girl. She is a combination of Dorothy meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer, someone between her mid-teens to 20s. Anyone wanting to audition or help does not have to be a member of the Sooke Harbour Players. Everyone is welcome. There is

need for props people, backstage, set builders, makeup artists, costumers, a seamstress, people who enjoy puppetry, a stage manager and a host of other theatre positions. “We need a bigger backstage crew than we’ve had before. The scope is bigger than anything the Sooke Harbour Players have put on before.” Full rehearsal start in September and those interested in auditioning should know that it is a long commitment of at least eight weeks and three weekends of shows. Anyone interested in auditioning, come to the Edward Milne community theatre on May 24 and 25 between 12 noon and 4 p.m. or on May 27 and 28 between 7 and 9 p.m. To book your audition or get more information, go to: www. afterlifethemusical.com. Reach Sooke Harbour Players at www.sookeharbourplayers.com. “If you loved Howl, come out — start the buzz,” said Southwood.

When the strings pluck at your heart Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

Jordan Vermes has had a long love affair with the strings. “When I was four,” he recounted, “I wanted to play the violin.” His parents thought it was just a phase, and assumed that he would get over it. However, three years later, Vermes was still asking. Apparently, the phase did not pass. At eight-and-a-half, he started classical lessons on the violin. “It runs in the family,” Vermes said, saying that his great great grandfather was a concert violinist, and his great great grandmother was a concert pianist. “They played for the Queen.” And, according to

Britt Santowski photo

Jordan Vermes family mythology, he was hooked on classical at two years old on first hearing Handel’s Messiah. Whatever the seed, the violin strings plucked at his heart and resonated right down to his soul. Twenty-one year old Jordan Vermes will be competing solo as a violist at the upcoming Provincial Performing Arts competition.

Vermes just got word on May 3, having recently completed the Greater Victoria Performing Arts Festival, that he was selected to represent Victoria (but we all know, that really means Sooke) in the Provincial Performing Arts competition, happening from June 3 - 7 in Penticton. Included in this achievement in Greater Victoria, Vermes received the

Unaccompanied Back Award, the Outstanding Senior Player, and the Viola Excellence Award. Three years ago, on the advice of his music teacher, put down his violin and picked up the viola. He’s mastering the viola as well. Slightly larger than a violin, the viola has a deeper sound than the violin. That, and there are fewer viola players compared to those on the violin. “It’s stiff competition,” he says, speaking of the up-coming Provincials. According to the TourismPenticton. com, it’s a high calibre of musicians who compete in the BC Provincials, where Vermes will be competing as a soloist in the strings category. “The most promising young performers of

the Penticton Kiwanis Festival will continue on to the Provincials which is being hosted in Penticton. Approximately 450 of B.C.’s most promising students of music, dance and speech arts will be recommended by adjudicators to take part in competitions, master classes and workshops.” Last year, the Collegium String Quartet placed first in the 2013 Provincial Chamber Music and Most Integrated Group Award. The Collegium String Quartet consisted of Blythe Allers, Ceilidh Briscoe, Jordan Vermes, Ethan Allers. Currently, Vermes is finishing up his second year at Camosun and will be leaving us to study at the University of Toronto.

Since then, the owner has had a more in depth Geotechnical Report and Geohazard Assessment completed by Ryzuk Geotechnical on February 20, 2014 which states that an erosion protection or other type of barrier is not considered necessary.

Maybe you have felt this “urge” when God strides by in your daily life and causes you to run instead of plodding along. Good news—He wants a running partner and it can be you and me! We can have that joyful exhilaration of striding along with God, experiencing this life from His perspective. Here he comes now. Go! Follow that “urge”! See what it’s like striding with God.

Public Hearings will be held in the Sooke Council Chambers at 2225 Otter Point Road, Sooke, BC on Monday May 26, 2014 at 7:00 pm to hear presentations on the following matters:

But I was dawdling along with my family and enjoying the moment greatly! That is until, with gazelle-like grace, he passed us on the track. Somehow my little jogging steps weren’t satisfying anymore. I wanted to catch up with this young buck and enjoy the camaraderie of striding along with him.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

668

I was walking and jogging around a track with my wife and daughter the other day. The goal was to walk and run according to the beeps on my daughter’s smartphone. Three beeps meant we needed to start jogging. Another three beeps meant we could slow down to a walk. I was content with this arrangement until a well-toned young man stepped onto the track and starting loping around the other end. Something inside of me, call it “the urge” if you like, pushed me to want to speed up and match him stride for stride. Maybe it was a wistful remembrance of days gone by when I looked like him and could run like him. Maybe I could run like that still.

Paws off! Let Mother Nature do her thing! Leave newborn wildlife in the wild

VICTORIA - When it comes to newborn wild animals, mother always knows best, and so with fawning and calving season underway provincial biologists are reminding people that newborn deer, elk or moose should not

be touched or moved when encountered. People who find these newborns alone often mistakenly believe they have been abandoned, but usually they have only been left there temporarily by their mother, who will return. Interven-

ing in these situations by “rescuing” the fawn or calf is rarely necessary and will usually do more harm than good. It is normal for mother deer, elk and other ungulates to leave their young alone for long periods, returning a few times a day

to nurse and relying on the newborn’s lack of scent to protect them from predators. Returning mothers that find humans or pets nearby may leave or can become aggressive to defend their offspring from the perceived threat. The mother will

return if the young is left alone. Although these newborns may appear abandoned, it is rarely the case, and if they are removed they will be orphaned. While professional wildlife rehabilitation facilities in some areas of B.C. can

successfully rear these newborns, there is no maternal care and their chances of survival are far less than if they had been raised by their true mother. This is true not just for deer; many mammals leave their young alone for long periods

of time, only to return to feed them at regular intervals. So, if you encounter a young deer or calf in the wild at this time of the year, appreciate the experience, but don’t approach or intervene.

Two Sooke female hockey players in BC’s top 10 per cent Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

Two women hockey players from Sooke rose to the top 10 per cent of women players in BC. Ashley Penney and Erica Pierce were both selected to participate in the BC Hockey U18 BC Cup games in Salmon Arm this year. The games were held from April 23 to 27, and one can only participate if invited in by hockey scouts. BC’s top 80 female players were recruited, from a field of 800. Both Ashley and Erica started playing hockey with the Sooke Minor Hockey Association, where they played on competitive teams (as opposed to recreational). They both attend EMCS. Ashley is in Grade 11, and just played her final set of games with BC Hockey’s U18 Winter Cup. Erica is in Grade 10 and has another year try out at the Winter Cup. Ashley has been playing for 13 years. “Just recently, I played for North Island Impact,” said Ashley, “just because there wasn’t as much opportunity down here,” referring to Sooke. “I played one year on the boys league,” she said, referring to a stint with Sooke Midgets. Erica has been playing for 10 years, and most recently played with the Female Major Midget Hurricanes

Ashley Penney and Erica Pierce. from Campbell River According to Wendy Pierce, Erica’s mother who sent us this lead, “These elite athletes worked hard to obtain invites and complete this gruelling four-day camp, which is the first step in the BC Hockey high performance process for selecting the U18 BC Team for the 2014/2015 season.” Of the 80 players invited to participate at the BC Cup, 40 are selected for a consecutive series known as the provincial camp, from which the final selection is made for the BC team. Not making the cut the final 40 was a bit of a disappointment for both girls, though each appreciated being able to play at the BC Cup games to begin with. Ashley figured it was money and opportunity that stood in their way. “Id’ say it was all the girls there that had

money to go to the top schools, like pursuit of excellence, OHA (the Okanagan Hockey Academy),” said Ashley. The big difference is “they are on the ice everyday, they train every day, and they have a lot more opportunity than us down here.”

Opportunity for the girls is limited to the hockey academy that EMCS hosts, one term, once a year. According to the EMCS website, “The aim of our academy is to enhance individual skill development through added ice time with quality instruction in a fun, safe, enjoyable, and challenging learning environment.” Participants in the Academy are on the ice three times a week, and have “multi-sports session” twice a week. It’s a great option, but it’s very short term, lasting only one semester each year. “It was my last year,” said Ashley, it being her second year of two years in competing for the BC Cup. She had been training for it,

“both mentally and physically … but … it was tough.” Ashley intends to stay with hockey for the foreseeable future. “It’s something I do want to pursue going into university or college,” she said. With one more year to go, Ashley hopes to get into either UBC or University of Alberta, and she’ll apply for their hockey teams when she gets there. Erica, though one eye on the distant future, is primarily focussed on the here-and-now. Erica, who has another shot at the BC Cup games next year, is hoping to have a chance to make the top 40 cut. “I think it will be tough,” she said, “but there’s always the opportunity.” For this year, though, she was in it mostly for the experience. HavSubmitted photos ing more Ashley Penney (above) and Erica opportuni- Pierce (left). ties to play would definitely help her grow, she figured. Being Island-bound does limit your opportunity to be noticed by scouts. “To get into the top 80,” Ashley explained, “they watch you throughout the season and you have to get an invite to go.” “Throughout the season,” added Erica, “they scout you, and 80 are invited.” Given the competition, though, both Erica and Ashley emphasis that your love of the sport must be the biggest driver for anyone interested in pursuing competitive hockey. “You’ve got to continue to love the game,” advised Erica. “You can love the game,” added Ashley, sagely, “but it won’t always love you.” Persist, said both women, and you will get some reward out of it. It just might not be what you expected.

EMCS humbled at the rugby rumble

Fred Whittaker photo

Pictured in this photo is a scrum in a game where the EMCS Wolverines played against Esquimalt in a convincing win, 41 to nothing. The AA Rugby semi finals were held at St Michaels University School (SMUS) on Monday May 12. EMCS were looking forward to a good result after a run of five victories in the run up. That day at SMUS was a lovely day on the grounds, promising a wonderful day for rugby: the grounds were dry and firm, perfect for the fast runners. EMCS kicked off against Glenlyon Norfolk School (GNS) and the early running was indecisive. After 10 minutes, GNS scored a try, five points, and converted another two points. Five minutes later, GNS scored again, but this time there was no conversion. With some very determined running, the EMCS Wolverines

scored what turned out to be their only points: a try converted, seven points. At half time, it was GNS 19 and EMCS 7. In the second half, GNS upped their play and proved to be superior in most aspects of the game. GNS’s long rugby culture plus their record of always being in the finals was, in the end, too much for our relatively inexperienced team. GNS scored four more times with two conversions and ran out the winners 43 to 7. Nevertheless the EMCS players never lost their determination and played fully for whole game. At the whistle they were all cheerful and Matt Mortenson, their coach was up beat. He said that next year when the

11th graders become 12th graders this years experience will have been valuable. In summary, a good season to build on for next year. This writer enjoyed all the games and encourages Sooke sports fans to come out and support our Wolverines. Submitted by Fred Whittaker UPDATE ON THE SOOKEAHALLA CUP (a contest between Belmont and EMCS): The score 20 minutes into the game was 14 to 0 for EMCS. Belmont lost several players to injury related to the acute temperature increase so they called the game. The Sookeahalla cup remains in Sooke for yet another year.

Legion Pool League wraps it up The Sooke Pool League held a season wind-up dinner at the Legion on May 10. From October to April the four local teams challenged each other weekly. Each team had six players, at least one of them had to be a female. The competition throughout the season was fast paced and enjoyable with a lot of camaraderie and laughs. The season winner was team two, the Fuzz Bustera, made up of Fuzzy Fedosenko, Captain, Dennis Pearson, Bill Davidson, Bill Schoemeyer, Wayne Foulds, Jane Stewart, Bev McGirr, Chris Reburn. Ken MacDonald’s team number one placed second. Team three was third and team four was fourth. The pool league will be starting up again in October, but pool games are played regularly at the Sooke Legion. More teams, more fun. If you want to play, there is a drop in pool tournament the second Sunday of each month. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 54 is located at 6726 Eustace Road.

Season winds up for pool sharks

The Sooke Pool League held a season wind-up dinner at the Legion on May 10. From October to April the four local teams challenged each other weekly. Balls were sunk and balls were not, much to the chagrin of the sharks in the league. Each team had six players, at least one of them had to be a female. The competition throughout the season was fast paced and enjoyable with a lot of camaraderie and laughs. The season winner was team two, the Fuzz Busters, made up of Capt. Fuzzy Fedosenko (above), Dennis Pearson, Bill Davidson, Bill Schoemeyer, Wayne Foulds, Jane Stewart, Bev McGirr, Chris Reburn. Ken MacDonald’s team number one placed second. Team three was third and team four was fourth. The pool league will be starting up again in October, but pool games are played regularly at the Sooke Legion. More teams, more fun.
