Trades training helps build community Leadership, community contributions in spotlight thanks to school district Christine van Reeuwyk News staff

A trades program at Lambrick Park secondary opened its door to more than just high school students last week. Teens in the TASK program (Trades Awareness Skills Knowledge) showed a crew of kids from Gordon Head middle school around their small construction site for a couple of days, culminating in building a shed to benefit the preschool program at the rec centre next door.

The Gordon Head pre-teens were on hand or two-day experience in a particular trade as part of a two-day Spotlight on Trades (in Lambrick’s case, carpentry), and the program, set up by Anna Lisa Bond, the high school students practise leadership Greater Victoria School District’s middle skills by mentoring middle school students. “It’s a good learning experience,” said school co-ordinator for career initiatives. “It excites me to hear young people feeling Tyler Maxwell, a Grade 11 student in the TASK program. excited about the possiThe spotlight probilities in their futures “It excites me to hear young vided an opportunity and seeing options before them that they people feeling excited about the to pass down the skills and knowledge he’s didn’t know they had,” possibilities in their futures.” learned in high school.

“I like building things so it’s fun,” Orlick said. “I’d like to do construction. I haven’t ruled out anything yet.” Lambrick’s TASK teacher, Todd Buchanan, said the younger kids were keen during the two days of working with hand tools. “It’s definitely important to get them excited about it early on and show them it’s a viable option, or at least a skill worth knowing,” he said. Charlene Parker, manager of the Gordon Head Rec Centre, says she’s thankful her rec centre – and the Victoria Nature Preschool program, more specifically – benefitted from the spotlight program. “We don’t have a lot of budget (to build a shed ourselves). It’s a $1,000 investment for us that they’re donating.” reporter@saanichnews.com

A passion for debate set Rhys Wynn-Williams up well for winning his first three public speaking competitions, culminating in earning the top prize at the second annual Public Speaking Contest hosted by the Rotary Club of Royal Oak Centennial earlier this month. Comfortable speaking after four years competing in debates at the provincial and national level, the challenge for the Grade 11 Spectrum Community School student came in presenting his own material. ”The speaking style translated perfectly, but I had to be a lot more organized because you can’t rant and win,” he said. “I still use a very aggressive speaking style, but the biggest difference for me is presenting my own content.” Given a selection of topics, he opted to talk about the way we’re going.

The Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live will roar through communities across Victoria in the annual poker ride to raise funds to support prostate cancer research and education in our community. During the last four years, the event, organized by a dedicated group of community volunteers in partnership with The Prostate Centre, has raised more than $357,000. This year’s goal is to have 500 riders raise $85,000. The Westcoast Motorcycle Ride to Live on Sunday, June 1 starts with breakfast at Fountain Tire in Langford at 7:30 a.m. and ends with lunch and closing ceremonies at Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney at 1 p.m. The event highlights the fact that one in seven men are diagnosed with prostate cancer, making it the No. 1 cancer threat to the lives and health of men. “Most men don’t want to talk about prostate cancer even though the statistics about the disease are startling,” said Kevin Worth, event chair. “That’s one of the many reasons why we have the ride, to raise the profile of prostate cancer and to ensure the men in our community have the support services they need but also help fund local researchers to find a cure for this disease that is affecting far too many of us.” For info, visit vi-ridetolive.ca. editor@saanichnews.com

New hunting guide offers valuable info

Heritage store likely to move Saanich council was expected to approve a bylaw to rehabilitate and relocate the Craigflower Bridge Store, also known as Brookman’s Grocery, on Monday night. The heritage building, currently at 998 Gorge Rd. W, is slated to move elsewhere on the large property as part of the project to build an independent supportive living senior’s residence and community care facility at 994 and 998 Gorge Rd. W. The plan includes rehabilitation and reuse of the old store as a community commercial destination. The site will become a four-storey, 144-unit seniors complex. reporter@saanichnews.com

The new hunting and trapping guide is here. The joint B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Black Press produced 2014-2016 Hunting & Trapping Regulations Synopsis, now available online and as a hard copy. Printed every two years, the guide is an important reference for the more than 100,000 licensed hunters in the province to navigate the numerous regulation changes, of which there are more than 50 from the previous guide, and help hunters decipher open seasons and plan upcoming fall hunting trips. Other information includes hunter education of the different game available in the province, no hunting or shooting areas and resource management of the eight regions in B.C. that make up one of the most diverse hunting grounds in the west. “The Fish and Wildlife Branch is committed to providing sustainable hunting opportunities for the province and encouraging people to go out there and enjoy the outdoors,” said government policy and regulations analyst Stephen MacIver. “B.C. has more big game species than any other jurisdiction in North America and provides some of the best hunting opportunities in the world.” The guide is effective July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016 for the rising number of local and tourist hunters setting their sights on the prized moose, elk, deer, sheep and goats that have helped buoy the number of hunters from approximately 80,000 in 2003 to 100,000 today. With more residents taking the hunter safety training, MacIver projects that number will continue to increase, making the need for the synopsis greater than ever. Hard copies are available at sporting good stores, and also in PDF format on every Black Press news site under E-Editions. and so much more!

Fusion girls headed to soccer provincials Kyle Slavin News staff

A group of 15 young soccer players are on cloud nine, after yet another successful season playing for Saanich Fusion. The girls U14 team, in the Vancouver Island Premier League, finished the year with an 8-3-2 record and came out on top at the Island Cup playdowns. “These girls have been training hard. We have a great group of girls,” said Meredith Campbell, manager of the Saanich Fusion team. “They’re friends on and off the playing field. They’re really competitive, yet very team-focused.” Saanich Fusion pulls players from Gordon Head and Cordova Bay, after the two areas’ soccer clubs merged in 2011. Campbell says the girls U14 team is evidence that it’s worked. Saanich Fusion has also attracted great

technical directors and coaches, she adds. “We don’t encompass a large area. The small amount of space that our club pulls from, for that type of talent to come out of here is fantastic,” she said. While the girls spent much of the season travelling up and down the Island, they’re headed to A Cup provincials in Burnaby in July to compete with the best in B.C. “Last year we went undefeated. We went into provincials with a similar situation, we won all four games and came out with the cup,” Campbell said. “This year we’ve moved up a level. But I think we stand a good chance.” Provincial A Cup is held July 3-6. Three other teams from Saanich Fusion – girls U16 VIPL, boys U13 gold and boys U18 VIPL – also earned a spot at provincials.

Adventure race raises $132K for kids in need Dr. Charles Simons

News staff

It took a little luck, in the form of a canoe, to help team Bulls and Bears win the 2014 Power to Play annual adventure race around and across Beaver and Elk lakes on Sunday. “There was four canoes and 32 teams, so do the math,” said Dave Burden, one of four teammates on the Bulls and Bears, a team of employees entered on behalf of RBC Dominion Securities. “There’s a lot of strategy involved in the race and we managed to grab one of the canoes and paddle across. Last year we weren’t so lucky and ended up (having to run) around the lake.” Overall the Bulls and Bears finished in just under two hours and 10 minutes and won two of the three award categories, including the team’s second straight Act of Kindness trophy for the most money raised: $11,150. The event raised $132,000 in total for Power to Be’s local initiative, which provides accessible and inclusive naturebased programs to more than 800 local youth and families. “The race challenges its competitors physically and mentally,” said Power to Be communications co-ordinator Kevin Chapman. “They all crawl through the mud and climb walls, but they also have to use their heads and come together as a team.” The Victoria Power to Play adventure race is one of three annual events that help fund the Power to Be Adventure Therapy Society. Next month is the Vancouver edition of Power to Play and later this summer the Victoria Golf Club will hold a sold-out, prestigious tournament with host Cassie Campbell-Pascall and philanthropists Peter and Ali Gustavson. reporter@saanichnews.com

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Re: Pooch prohibition poses problems (News, May 21)

Take advantage of dog-friendly spaces I have been walking my dog for over 14 years daily at beautiful Gyro Park beach. I feel it is a privilege to go there before 9 a.m., enjoying the stunning scenery, fresh air and let the dogs run and play. During the summer month our beach is visited by many more people and their dogs. Maybe these extra visitors do not know that part of the beach, between Tudor Avenue and the breakwater, is available 24/7 for dogs? Instead of being rude to the bylaw officers, we need to respect those restrictions. This allows families with children who are not comfortable with our four-legged companions to enjoy the beach and have a picnic without being bothered by a dog. Brigitte Jasmann Saanich

Rotate spots where dogs aren’t allowed The article on the displeasure of dog owners in regard to public beaches makes some good points. I would like to hear who, when and why the particular beaches were designated “no dogs.” Saanich council should re-visit this issue and pass a bylaw that rotates the “no dogs” beaches each year. Rotating signage could be funded through fines on the beaches where dog owners are not in compliance. Peter Flanders Saanich

Caddy Bay animal restriction is tough The statement that there are 160 Saanich parks that are viable alternatives to parks with dog restrictions is true but not the full story. There are fewer parks with water access, even fewer with parking and only a couple with an actual sandy beach rather than a rocky shore. Of those only one, Gyro Park, has beach access for wheelchairs, walking assists or strollers. Also, the section of Gyro Park that does allow dogs isn’t accessible through the park without getting a ticket. You cannot park in the main Gyro Park parking lot and get to the permissible beach walking area – without cutting across the park and therefore getting a ticket. A reasonable solution might be to allow dog walkers to park in the main parking lot, and provided their dog is on leash and they walk around the periphery of the park away from the playground and barbecue areas they won’t be ticketed. I think the restrictions need to be rationalized to reflect common sense. Graham Payette Saanich What do you think? Give us your comments by e-mail: editor@saanichnews.com or fax 250-386-2624.

should never be reduced to victim history, and with the Stó:lo atlas we sought to show the complexity of aboriginal history, and we sought to show that not only are there aboriginal people in Canada’s history, but that Canada is in aboriginal peoples’ histories. “There were times in the past when aboriginal people were victimized (residential schools being a tragic example), and there were times when aboriginal people showed great agency (retaining the masked dance, and continuing to fish salmon, for example). “Knowing that native society was not a Utopia when Europeans arrived does not take away from the importance of learning about the full history of aboriginal people and their relationship with Canadian society. “And of course, as Ernie Crey has reminded me many times, let’s never forget that native rights are not based on race. Rather, they are rights based on prior occupation. And let’s also not forget that it is British and Canadian law that recognizes aboriginal peoples’ inherent rights. “Let’s teach good history to our youth so they can understand the complex relationship between settler society and aboriginal society. Through knowledge comes understanding and through understanding can come reconciliation.” Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com

Simple ingrown toenail can be a real risk Nate Clark News staff

Bruce Taylor has journeyed a long way just to get his toenails clipped. In fact, six times a year Taylor gets in his car and makes the two-and-a-half hour journey from Vancouver to Victoria, just to see his favourite foot doctor. This might seem extreme, but Taylor is fiercely loyal to his Victoria podiatrist, and for good reason. Years ago, after he sought treatment for a common foot problem, an infected toenail, he found himself in a position that could have eventually cost him his leg. “Bruce was on an I.V. of antibiotics,” says Dr. William Mirchoff, former president of the B.C. Association of Podiatrists, the Canadian Podiatric Medical Association, and miracle worker for seniors like Taylor. “Ninetynine per cent of the time they are going to give you antibiotics. But if you take the piece of nail out that’s causing the chronic infec-

Mirchoff would be the only person coming near his feet any time soon. “I have neuropathy and it didn’t heal,” says Taylor. “When you’re older you might not have enough circulation for your feet to heal. You might end up having your leg taken off below the knee. Now I only come to this guy.” Taylor isn’t exaggerating. The neuropathy he’s talking about is a nerve condition common to the elderly, where areas of the body can become chronically numb. Any injuries or infections in those areas can be aggravated if not treated quickly. “Seniors can have callouses or ulcers that they aren’t aware of,” explains Mirchoff. “They can develop into infections that don’t heal properly. Then they are in danger of losing their foot, or their leg.” Serious stuff, yes, but it should also be noted here

Never too old to talk about the birds and bees N othing is safe when we talk about senior sex I love to surf seniors’ websites, but lately I have been put off by a proliferation of articles about elderly parents dating and having sex. As boomers we all know that our senior parents don’t have sex. It just wouldn’t be right. I recall when I was a lad inadvertently barging into my parents’ bedroom one Sunday morning when they were taking a walk on the wild side. Even though I had no idea what

Brian Kieran was going on they were so mortified that they stopped this unseemly activity altogether. By the time I left home for university they were too old for sex so the issue was moot. I moved on through

life satisfied that most parents stop having sex after the kids are born and the rest stop after they are caught in the act by their impressionable nine-yearolds. Now, I read on caregiverstress.com that our parents are going at it well into their senior years. The New England Journal of Medicine reports that more than 25 per cent of seniors aged 75 to 85 are sexually active. The number rises above 50 per cent for seniors ages 65 to 74. This news just in … according to results of a

survey commissioned by Home Instead Inc. sex is absolutely the last thing adult children want to talk about with their senior parents. Why in heavens name would a boomer like me want to go down such an embarrassing path with a senior parent? Well, CBS News tells me that sexually transmitted diseases have more than doubled over the past decade in the 50 to 90 demographic. Apparently my assumption that my generation is aware of the commonly known risks associated with sexual activity is false. CBS

says senior baby boomers originally became sexually active at a time when free love was relatively free of STDs and ‘safe sex’ was not part of our lexicon. Everythingzoomer.com states the obvious: “No matter how close you are to your senior parent, discussing the details of your loved one’s dating life will likely be a little awkward for the both of you. He or she may feel embarrassed or may not want to talk about it at all.” Regardless, we are urged to have the talk … the same talk most of our par-

ents did not have the courage to have with us when we were 15. So, how does that chat go? “Mom? Got a minute? I hear you’re dating one of your neighbours at Shady Rest … Charlie, the balding guy three doors down on the left. Wanna talk about it?” “I’m mortified. Where did you hear such outlandish gossip, son?” “Down at the bowling alley of all places, mom.” “That’s ridiculous. Which side? Five pin or 10?” “Five.” “That no good bum is cut off.”

Words from the wise

Q&A Gayle Vaughan Gayle Vaughan, 72, was born in Winnipeg Manitoba and at the age of three moved to Victoria where she attended school at Bank Street Elementary (now the Victoria School of Art), Margaret Jenkins Elementary and Oak Bay Junior High. Jokingly Gayle says, “my misspent youth, I was married at 21.” She has three children and two grandchildren. Seven years ago Vaughan moved to the Tillicum area to be closer to family and with that she discovered the Saanich Silver Threads Service at the Les Passmore Centre where she enjoys the ‘guess who is coming to dinner’ and the ‘Monday social tea.’

Q What is your favourite Greater Victoria place or activity? A “The scenery, the weather, it is a pretty city. If you don’t have enough money for a vacation there is lots to do in Victoria with arts, beaches etc.” Q What words of wisdom from your

own parents have you tried to follow?

A “When you are warm, dry and wellfed everything else in life is a bonus... Also, never think you are to old to learn anything new.”

Q What’s the top of your “bucket list?” A: “To remain independent and to keep good health for as long as I can” Q What is your proudest achievement? A

“My family.”

Ask the Expert Seniors’ Edition Q: I am moving this summer from my home of 48 years to a retirement community. I raised my family in this home for the last 43 years. I have so much stuff and have no idea where to begin. Please help!

A: How

wonderful you’ve made the decision for this new adventure. I know you’ll be very happy once you’ve settle into your new place. Don’t get stressed out by this impending move. Take a look at this task with 20/20/20/20 Vision. 1) Get some boxes and a big felt marker, start in one room – think about your children or loved ones close to you. Choose 20 items having sentimental value and importance to you and your family. Place them in the boxes and mark their names on them. How special for each child/ loved one to receive some special momentos from you at this time. 2) Choose 20 items you will feel good about donating to CHARITY. There are so many neighbourhood causes that need good quality used items and they will benefit tremendously from your generosity. 3) Time to focus on you. Mark a box with NEED. Decide on 20 things that you absolutely NEED in your next living space. Don’t forget what is already provided to you with the services you will receive in your new retirement community. Choose just the 20 things in this room that you NEED. 4) In the last box of this room, mark it with WANT. Choose 20 items you want to take. They may be sentimental and not practical, but they are still important to you. Well, you have already decided on 80 items – where they should go and what you will do with them.

Barbara Waldner, 82,is originally from Saskatoon, she and her husband, Harvey, moved to Victoria in 1964 with two little girls and four years later they produced twin boys!  They moved to Cordova Bay in 1965 and she has been widowed for 11 years now.  She says, “Cordova Bay is a perfect place to raise a family and the 55+ Association offers an abundant variety of activities, besides lasting friendships.”  She has 11 grandchildren and two great grandsons and feels fortunate to have all her family living close by.  “Life offers so much to us and I have been fortunate to be able to keep active in my church, theatre, dance, artistic creativity, the For the Love of Africa Society and volunteer work in our wide community.” To keep fit, she cycles walks, exercises and dances, and has started taking ukelele lessons.

Shirley Smirke, 83, has been a part of the Monterey Recreation Centre for about 22 years, taking part in their craft carnival and volunteering at the rummage sale. She loves Saanich for its mixture of farmsand semi-rural atmosphere mixed with developments. She loves walking in her favourite places: Swan Lake and Mount Doug Park. She likes to knit, embroider and does plenty of reading. Her favourite types of books include history, mysteries, biographies and anything that looks good.
