Rescuers called out in separate incidents Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

Early Monday morning (June 2) saw the Sooke Fire Rescue Services come out to Shamrock House, an assisted living residence in Sooke, when 97-year-old Walter Barrs slipped down an embankment at the edge of the property. Barrs is a tenant of Sandra Eglingtonn, who operates Shamrock House on Phillips Road in Sooke. Eglingtonn said she went to give him his breakfast when she discovered he was not in his residence. A walk about the property led Eglingtonn to one of Barrs’ slippers, and he was quickly located. A call to 9-1-1 enlisted the help of Sooke’s Fire Rescue Service, where they executed a rope rescue. According to Eglingtonn, nothing was broken. Barrs is being checked over at the hospital, after which Eglingtonn expects he will come back home to Shamrock House. In a separate incident on May 31, with separate rescuers, the Royal Canadian Air Force Search and Rescue crew brought four pleasure boaters to safety near Sooke.

According to the RCAFSS, a CH-149 Cormorant helicopter was launched from 19 Wing Comox to conduct the mission. The rescue took place near Sooke, north of Secretary Island. A small skiff (pleasure craft) lost engine power and was swamped after hitting a rock. The four boaters on board were able to steer the craft to shore, but became stranded on a rocky shoreline. The boaters used a marine radio to contact Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Victoria, located at CFB Esquimalt and call for help. The Cormorant arrived on scene at approximately 7 p.m. and hoisted two Search and Rescue Technicians 100 feet to the rocky shoreline. After the technicians assessed no medical aid was required, the four people were hoisted into the helicopter. They were subsequently flown to a sports field at a local high school. The helicopter landed at the sports field and they were met by RCMP and a family member. The four boaters were well equipped with a radio and had

started to build a survival fire at the time of their rescue. A lifeboat from Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue #37 was also called to respond. “We located the boaters on the shore of a rocky inlet, after receiving the call from JRCC. We hoisted the two Search and Rescue Technicians onto a spit of land and they made their way on foot to where the boaters had taken shelter on the beach. Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue 37 was also on scene in support, but were unable to proceed too close to the shore due to rocks,” said Captain Will Livingston, Cormorant helicopter pilot, 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron. 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron Cormorant and Buffalo aircraft are JRCC Victoria’s primary means for aviation SAR responses in the Victoria Search and Rescue Region (SRR). The Victoria SRR includes 920,000 square kilometres of mainly mountainous terrain in British Columbia and the Yukon, extending approximately 600 nautical miles (965 kms.) offshore into the Pacific Ocean.

CORRECTION

SUPER

We were mistakenly vague in the-week-beforelast week’s paper (“Local art instructor donates close to $3,000 to BC Children’s Hospital”). The $2,906 cheque presented to the BC Children’s Hospital, while presented by Shanna Hamilton, was a result of the collective efforts from SEAPARC’s Festival of Trees. As Hamilton wrote in an email, the donated funds were “for Sooke’s annual donations to the BC Children’s Hospital”; Elizabeth Olsen of SEAPARC articulated that the funds were collected from all the generous people of Sooke who donated at the Festival of Trees.

In quest of a forever home for child care Britt Santowski

Sooke News Mirror

Affordable daycare — and finding a daycare spot in general — is an ongoing challenge for parents in Sooke. And elsewhere. In an article last year, CBC found that B.C. monthly rates are the highest for any province or territory, averaging in at $850 for a two year old (“Child care by the numbers,” July 2013). One consolation for parents is that as kids get older, the costs go down. School-aged kids who require only out-of-school care are cheaper, with an average cost of $347 a month. Care facility operators also have their set of challenges. Kids Quest Child Care Society is one of them. Kids Quest is unique on two fronts. First, it is a not-for-profit facility. As outlined on ChildCare. net, not-for-profit centres can receive government funding. But, in order to do so, they must be run by a board that is composed of at least 51 per cent parents. It is the parents’ involvement that determines the services and

programs provided by the facility. The other thing that makes Kids Quest unique is that they currently operate out of two local elementary schools. Running a facility on school grounds, though, does come with its challenges. They currently rent space from the school district and run three before-and-after school care programs out of two local elementary schools. However, as the annual demands for classroom space change in Sooke, Kids Quest holds its breath at the end of every year to see what will be available for the year ahead. The convenience of operating out of the elementary schools has both its perks and quirks. The best perk is that the children can often stay in the same building. The oddest quirk, manager and society coordinator Christine McGuinness points out, is the children at Saseenos elementary cannot play on the playground equipment — the stuff they play on while at school there — because the equipment does not pass the licensing

requirement specific to the Kids Quest. But the biggest quirk is not knowing where they will be in the year to come takes its toll. To address this, they are looking for a permanent location. According to Harold Cull, the secretary-treasurer at SD62, it’s an annual challenge. “We’re estimating space requirements on estimated enrolment,” he said, noting that accurate numbers are not available until the actual school year starts, and the final budget is not approved until June. Added to the complications is that Sooke is one of the few districts with growing enrolment. With the demands on space increasing, Cull admits “we are not in a position to commit to them” on a permanent full-time basis. “We need to find a forever home,” said Andrea Brygadyer, a parent board member. “We’ve spent this whole year looking for spaces,” said McGuinness. In a perfect world, McGuinness would love to see a rent-toown option, in a big house that is commercially zoned.

In the meanwhile, they will be at Sooke and Saseenos for another year, and continue their search for a forever home. For parents looking for childcare for their children, there is a referral program available in Sooke. It’s called the Sooke Westshore Childcare Referral Pro-

gram (CCRR). CCRR provides parents with a list of daycares, suggested questions you might consider asking in choosing child care, and child care subsidy applications for lower income families. They can be reached at http://www.sfrs.ca/ ccrr.html, or by phone at 250-642-5153.

Making the connection

Work is progressing on the connector road being built between Church road and otter Point road. it is expected to be complete by the end of August 2014.

Bear safe approach is best Careful management of bear attractants is the first and most important step in controlling “bear problems,” as bears are motivated by hunger, not malice. By the time we recognize our mistakes, it is often too late for the bear. Sooke weekly hot spots: Philips Road, Whiffin Spit, Sooke River Road. Several black bears have been spotted in these residential areas, foraging for garbage. This is a learned behaviour that threatens the safety of both the bears and the residents of that community. Solution: What should I do if there is a bear in my yard ? First, ask yourself what has attracted the bear to your yard? Second, call the Conservation officer Service at 1-877-952-7277. Do not let the bear feel comfortable in your yard. If you are

This bear trap was set up in the Phillips road area where a bear was attracted to chickens. concerned about confronting the bear, make a loud, preferably low frequency, noise (e.g. bang pots together) from the safety of your house. A bear in your yard should never be a welcome sight. You must take quick action to eliminate attractants after the bear is gone. A bear that finds food once is likely to return to that spot. A returning bear will learn that the food is no longer available and will seek a meal elsewhere if you eliminate the food

Store garbage in a secure building, until collection day and manage attractants like bird feeders, pet food, coolers and outside freezers. Debbie Read WildsafeBC - Coordinator CRD Region

At the regular District of Sooke council meeting on May 26, the following agenda items were dealt with. Delegations: • The Sooke River Bluegrass Festival Society’s spokesperson Al Planiden came before council with a request for funding for the festival scheduled for the Father’s Day weekend in June. The request was for $1,600 to cover the cost of the rental of the Sooke Flats for the three-day event. Planiden stated that last year the Sooke Community Assoc. did not charge for the site. “We’re hoping to have more attendance now that the festival is back on,” said Planiden. “We would like to make this a signature event for Sooke.” Council voted unanimously to grant the Sooke River Bluegrass Festival Society the $1,600 request, • Diane Bernard came before council and quoted from a letter received from the Capital Regional District in regard to access to the Sea to Sea Park through Harbourview Road. It stated, “the CRD is clear that it does not support motorized access through the Sea to Sea Regional Park via

Harbourview Road or any road in the park.” Public and Statutory Hearings: • Council voted in favour of amending a covenant for 6669 Horne Road which would see the removal of the requirement to build a retaining wall for erosion protection removed. Al other terms and conditions remain the same. Bylaws: Council gave first, second and third reading to Bylaw 590 - Sooke Town Centre Revitalization Amendment Bylaw. The amendments will allow inclusion of Built Green® to allow developers to choose a green building certification program for residential that best meets their needs. Buildings are then eligible for property assessment exemptions, reduced building permit fees and reduced development cost charges. Harbourside Cohousing wish to pursue Built Green® rather than Leed® certification as it is less costly and less cumbersome. • Council adopted Bylaw 592, Fire Protection Services Amendment Bylaw, for the purpose of updating the Open Air Fires section of the bylaw. Reports requiring

action: Council awarded the following grants: Category A - Sooke Food Bank Society, $2,370; Sooke Lion’s Club - Canada Day, $2,000; Sooke Region Food CHI Society, $9,160 plus $1,140 from Category B grants.The Sooke Food CHI grant will be for upgrading their harvest shed to food safe standards. Councillor Herb Haldane stated, “If they are getting a bag full of potatoes and a handful of parsley, I would rather see the Sooke Food Bank get $9,000.” Council voted in favour of the two grants. Council funded the EMCS Society for $7,000. A new application came forward from the Greater Victoria Bike to Work Society requesting $500. This was granted. Category B - The EMCS Mural Project was awarded $7,000; the EMCS Student Bus Shelter Project was granted $1,891; The Navy League if Canada was awarded $6,560 for painting,and improving the lighting to the stage area of the Legion building. An application from Synergy Sustainability Institute for $1,500 was not approved by council.

I have taken 5 common ingredients from commercially available products and combined them in a highly precise ration (OK, I winged it) to take care of that thick, discoloured, brittle and sometimes painful toenail(s). As with other preparations, use it daily for up to three months for results. If you think about it, fungus is a pretty funky word. Ask for it by name at the pharmacy counter.

If you make it, bake it, grow it or catch it, the Sooke Region Museum wants you! It was through discussions with the Downtown Beautification Committee and the Chamber of Commerce that an idea took hold and is now becoming a reality. A night market for Sooke. A market where vendors of all types of goods can sell their wares for a few hours each Thursday night, 5 to 8:30 p.m. from June to September. Space was the prime consideration and Lee Boyko, Executive Director of the Sooke Region Museum said, “Why not consider the museum?” Was it synergy, serendipity or just like minds? It doesn’t matter, what does matter is that it is happening and

Executive Director Lee Boyko shows where the Sooke night market will be. it begins on June 5. The idea is to have 30 vendors scattered along the museum pathways selling whatever they sell. “Realistically 25 is a more manageable number,” said Boyko. “We put the call out and we don’t have 25 yet but it’s coming. We still have space for ven-

dors.” He said interested vendors can get all the information they need from the Sooke Region Museum’s website: sookeregionmuseum. com. So far they have folks selling food, crafts, some produce, soaps, salts and various other items.

Some of the most interesting vendors, according to Boyko, is one selling Indian food. The museum itself will be selling something seafood-based. “We’re excited about that,” said Boyko. Boyko said they don’t want any duplication and he encourages local entrepreneurs to

make use of that. The museum has a commercial kitchen and they can work with vendors using it. They hope for at least one food truck. Vendors will be selected from the region between Sooke and the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area. The idea is to be relatively selective in choosing vendors. They want to be open but not too open. For example, they do not want a “flea market” atmosphere but if someone has interesting “collections” they might be considered. A committee is in place in case anyone has any questions. Vendors can choose to commit for the entire season or on a weekly basis. “This is an experiment for everybody,” said Boyko. “We hope to build it up.”

An amusing farm story for fall fair book project A few years back, my husband and I were called by Mrs. Lunson, on the 140acre Helgesen Farm on Helgesen Road. She was wanting to get her lambs off to market and needed some help to get them caught and on the truck. She was already well into her 90s and a tiny, feisty bundle of Scottish ancestry. When we arrived, we chatted a bit, and then we went off to the shed where she had put feed and hay in to lure the sheep in. When you feed, the animals don’t come in segregated, they all come in. We needed to separate the rams from the ewes. Mrs. Lunson had fashioned up a lasso of sorts, from some heavy rope which was about. The rope was quite heavy, but she insisted she would lasso the rams and we were to help hold onto them and load them. The sheep began to move around in circles as we tried to break away the rams from the ewes. My husband, with his typical sense of Irish humour, stopped and asked Mrs. Lunson, “How can I tell

Black Welsh Mountain sheep at Sandy and David Parsons on Phillips Road.

which ones are the rams?” Mrs. Lunson, stopped with her lasso on the ground and looked at him with shock. She dropped the rope and with her one hand, grabbed her other hand at the wrist and left the hand dangling. She shook the dangling hand and said, “You look for the things hanging at the back end underneath that look like this and wiggle when they run.”

My husband could not contain his laughter and Mrs. Lunson, realizing she had been had, picked up her lasso and threw it at my husband with a *&%$**bleep and then she too succumbed to fitful laughter. In the end we did separate the rams and loaded them onto the truck, not without some tough times being dragged through the hay with heels dug in. We had our own rodeo. Just another day on the farm, and you thought it was a boring life. Mrs.Lunson lived out her life on her farm and died at the age of 101. She and her husband started their farm with dairy cattle and when the milk truck no longer came to pick up milk due to muddy roads, etc., they turned their hand to sheep and goats. A healthy lifestyle of hard work and good food and as my husband says, he thinks it was the Werther candies Mrs. Lunson consumed on a regular basis, which helped her to live a long and industrious life.

250-642-5050 While the Colwood Hotel stood miles to the east of Sooke, it figured in the lives of travelers to Victoria in the early 1900s. This photo shows the second Colwood Hotel, rebuilt in 1892 after the first one burned. It was located on the water side of what was then a dirt road – now a busy intersection that is controlled by many flashing traffic signals today. The 1913 Buick in the photo belonged to the Maynard family of Maynard and Sons Auctioneers. In the museum’s collections there is another photo showing this Maynard touring car on the road to Jordan River, alongside a horse and wagon driven by Jack White, who had at that time used his team to pull the vehicle out of the mud. Because we note a team of horses and a wagon with hay bales in this photo as well, we suggest that the owner of the team was again Jack White. For those who are interested in the history of

Aaron Denton White and his First Nations wife Owechemis, Jack White was the couple’s only son, following four daughters who became very wellknown through their marriages into Sooke pioneer families. Because the Buick belonged to the Maynards and because Katherine, a daughter of Hannah Maynard the pioneer photographer, lived in Jordan River, married to D. I. Walker, the engineer responsible for the early hydro operation, we can again suggest that visiting the Walkers would be the reason the car was on the road. In any event, traffic was sparse in the early 1900s. Even in 1951, just after my husband and I were married, we were driving one Sunday evening from Sooke to our home in Victoria when we had our own little experience showing the contrast to current traffic conditions. While today there is a plethora of lanes at this intersection, leading to Langford, up-island,

Victoria or Sooke, with an array of traffic signals to guide motorists, in that year there were none, only a little old STOP sign as we joined the Island Highway. In the gathering dusk, with no vehicles in sight, my husband chose not to stop at the sign. Guess what?

A police cruiser was hidden behind nearby bushes at the quiet corner and we got a ticket.

EDITORIAL CARTOON

Conferences are not vacation “perks” When council has to make a decision whether to give the food bank a couple of thousand dollars for milk and then budgets $27,050 for conferences and travel, one has to wonder where their priorities really are. When only one member of council has declared (to the Sooke News Mirror) they are running in the next election, one questions why at least four (if not six) of them are jetting off to a conference in Niagara Falls, or plan on attending the UBCM conference in Whistler in September. If the conference was being held in Podunk, Saskatchewan in February, it is doubtful anyone would wish to attend. They’d all be fighting for who gets to stay home. Do councillors partners/ spouses get to tag along? Some do, especially when conferences are held in attractive and desirable places, kind of like a mini family vacation. We know councillors are not paid handsomely for the work they do, but that’s public service — service without pay. Service for the community, the public. Can you see the irony here? What possible benefit will Sooke get from council attendance at conferences if they don’t plan on running in the November election. UBCM should not be held in September on years when there is an impending election. It’s a waste of taxpayers’ money and it is not or should not be a “perk” for past performance. One could and likely will argue that councillors learn so much at these junkets and conferences. Really? When do we see the “learning” at the council table? So, who’s running? Wendal Milne - undeclared Bev Berger - undeclared Herb Haldane - undeclared Rick Kasper - undeclared Kevin Pearson - undeclared Kerrie Reay - declared Maja Tait - undeclared.

ANOTHER VIEW

Farmland fate a test for parties B.C. Views The B.C. Liberal government’s bill to divide the Agricultural Land Reserve into two zones has passed, after one of the nastier exchanges I’ve seen in a decade covering the B.C. legislature. “You’re all a bunch of corrupt liars,” NDP agriculture critic Nicholas Simons yelled as the government cut off a long and mostly repetitious debate that dominated the final days of the legislature session. Not to be outdone, cabinet minister Bill Bennett replied to Simons’ heckle about Kootenay rancher Faye Street, one of Bennett’s most vocal supporters as he pushed through changes to the land reserve to ease land use restrictions in rural zones. Bennett advised Simons to offer his remarks to Street in person. “She’ll kick your ass,” Bennett said. The on-the-record debate wasn’t much better. Columbia River-Revelstoke  NDP  MLA Norm Macdonald summed up  his party’s  biggest objection with his charge that “a bunch of Liberal political hacks” will be appointed to regional panels of the Agricultural Land Commission. The government’s  scheme, Macdonald and other NDP critics predicted, is to unleash a flood of ALR land removals, to enrich B.C. Liberal supporters by allowing development on productive farmland. That might be a valid concern, but there are a couple of factual prob-

lems. First, every appointment to the ALC, at the regional or provincial level, is made by the B.C. government. It’s been that way since the Dave Barrett administration set it up in 1973. Second, the regional panels are not new. The B.C. Liberals imposed them in 2003. If this was their method of corrupting the process to dismantle the ALR, that would have largely happened in the years since. Surely by this time they would have found enough greedy political hacks who hate farming to subvert the process. I’ve written before about the legitimate concerns of places like Merritt and Vanderhoof and Dawson Creek, where some ALR rules and decisions simply don’t make sense. Strict secondary residence rules are needed in areas with non-farm development pressure. In most rural areas, they are a mistake, and are frequently ignored. The debate wasn’t entirely devoid of honesty and civility. Macdonald interrupted his string of baseless accusations to note that under the current system, 75 per cent of exclusion applications in the Kootenay region are approved. If that’s the case, what is really broken that needs to be fixed? It’s a good question that the   government did not adequately answer. And credit also goes to the new agriculture minister, Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick, who

inherited a public relations mess left by the brief and boneheaded performance of Peace River North MLA Pat Pimm. Braving the heckling at the end, Letnick put aside his partisan talking points and gave his personal assurance that the government’s intention is to support farming in those places where non-farm income is the only thing that keeps people on the land. As soon as the theatrics had died down, the B.C. NDP sent out a fundraising plea to its members to help “save” the ALR. The party is broke and desperate after losing its fourth straight election, and it hopes to activate its declining donor base by portraying the changes as the imminent slaughter of its most sacred cow. Voters have three years before the next election to assess this situation. If there is a flood of exclusions of prime agricultural land, then the NDP will be able to make its case that its warnings were at least partially true. If this does not take place, then the government’s position will be vindicated. We’ll find out the truth. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Effluent cause for concern It was with some surprise that I read the legal notice in your May 28/14 edition about a Disposition of Crown Land for the development at Silver Spray or Sooke Point or whatever the latest development is called, now that they’re past the tent house stage. Surely that notice was inserted in your paper in jest. After reading about the glories of that development in ads everywhere one looks, I can’t imagine that the developer now wants to dump his sewage right in front of his “Luxury Yacht Suites.” Just think, sitting on the deck or bridge of your yacht suite, trying to identify an orca amid  the grunge that collects in all those scenic “sunset coves;” the only good thing  would  be  the presence of a strong drink in your hand killing the aromas arising from the magnificent biodiversity the developer raves about. Sooke has not much of an industrial base and what holds up a large section of Sooke’s economy is tourism oriented. So now we shall have a sewage outfall right in the midst of a prime fishing area, at the entrance to Sooke Harbour which would love to share in that “biodiversity” when the tides wash it into the various marinas and

shore lines. Not even imagining how thrilled world-renowned Sooke Harbour House is going to be, having a sewer outfall just a few hundred feet from its shore. As a  novice weekend fisherman I always was taught to follow the tide lines, to be honest, that’s not always that easy. Now it will be so much easier to follow the scum line. Who says sewage hasn’t got it’s advantages. All kidding aside, this is a dreadful proposition and while one can’t argue with the location of the treatment plant which sits on the developer’s private property, to bless Sooke with the effluent of his development is quite simply outrageous. Makes one wonder, where is the effluent going at present?  The storm caused by this proposal will be enough to keep the developer from changing the name of the: “Why go to Tofino Bar.” The storm in Sooke will be plenty.  Ray Bindig  East Sooke

Dog deserves better My friend and I were at Macgregor Park in Sooke, on May 26 where we witnessed a women abusing her Australian Sheep dog. She was very aggressive.

We both saw you kick your dog four times, and when we tried to intervene you became hostile and verbally abusive.

Helen Burley Victoria

Go green if you can It’s great to see new businesses in Sooke like the car wash/laundry, but my first reaction actually was -- how many chemicals are going to go down their drains? My husband and I moved to this area from Victoria, because I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, severe reactions similar to asthma and allergies to all chemicals, petroleum derivatives, additives, colourings, etc., in foods, cleaning products, shampoo, laundry detergents, and so on.   We are fortunate to have our own washer and dryer, so we won’t be using Sooke Laundry, yet I can’t help but feel bad about the business, because the facilities are so nice, clearly

a great deal of care, thought, and planning went into making it, yet the scented detergents, fabric softeners, and air “fresheners” customers use will create a toxic indoor environment, and the dryers will vent a toxic soup outside, so we will be avoiding food-related businesses near them. It’s a shame they didn’t choose to be “Green,” and require customers to use only unscented, biodegradable, phosphate and chemical-free laundry products, and for the car wash to provide soap which is “Green” as well. The machines will now be permeated with these chemicals. The dryers may not be able to be cleared of the scents/chemicals (or it will take a long while), but the washing machines can over time be cleaned if white vinegar and baking soda are used, and no detergents are ever used again. The chemicals in the car wash soap will leave a residue, and when it rains, will wash off the cars and go into the ground and drains. On a positive note, people are realizing that the laundry smell they associate with cleanliness/freshness is actually toxic/fake, as more kids are sadly diagnosed with asthma and other allergies, and parents are switching to simpler products

which are safe for the environment, humans, animals, plants -- life in general. We live in such a beautiful place, there are so many ways we pollute it, and it’s so easy to do the right thing.

10 •• www.sookenewsmirror.com www.sookenewsmirror.com  10 Cont’d from page 9 recent participation at the Nationals of Musicfest Canada  in Surrey in May.  The coverage by Joanne Baines made for wonderful reading.  These young people have done themselves and all of Sooke proud.  Lorna Bjorklund, a music teacher at the school has been working small miracles since her arrival there a few years ago. She would be the first to acknowledge the dedicated help of many members of the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra, more specifically Anne McDougall, the Concertmaster, with help from Mary Clarke and Joanne Cowan and also Jen Fiorin, the music teacher at EMCS.    After a decade and more of dead silence, organized music making has returned to Sooke’s schools, beginning as it should with all 17 of the District of Sooke’s elementary schools now providing music as part of their curriculum. The District School Board and in particular Margot Swinburnson, one of Sooke’s elected members of the board, who for years has ardently pressed for more music in the schools, is to be warmly praised for this.  As well, we should be grateful to the parents of these music students, whose interest and dedication - and insistence - has played such an effective role in supporting this happy and vital situation.

Effluent should not be discharged into strait The May 28, 2014, issue of the Sooke News Mirror carries notice of an application by Landus Development Group Inc. to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations (MFLNRO) for a Licence-Utility at Possession Point, just outside Sooke Harbour. This is part of the Sooke Point Development which is in the District of Sooke.  The Ministry’s website (http:// arfd.gov.bc.ca/ApplicationPosting/index.jsp)

Wednesday, June June 4, 4, 2014 2014 -- SOOKE SOOKE NEWS NEWS MIRROR MIRROR Wednesday,

letters

has details of this application (file No. 1414241) which reveal it is for a 200-metre utility/sewage/effluent outfall into Juan de Fuca Strait. The website also shows the location of a “wastewater treatment plant” but gives no details of what is included in “wastewater” nor the level of treatment to be provided, whether primary, secondary or tertiary.  The website also provides opportunity for comments, but only until June 7, 2014.  Possession Point and nearby Donaldson (Secretary) Island are the premier salmon fishing spots in the Sooke area and the nearby Sooke Flats are an excellent crabbing area heavily used by commercial and recreational fishers, as is Sooke Harbour.  The tidal currents into  Sooke Harbour bring all kinds of “gifts,” including dead sea mammals and all sorts of man-made garbage.  Sooke Point development sewage could do the same.  The potential for pollution of all these areas is just too high and unacceptable. It is incredible that while CRD is spending millions struggling to decide where and how to build an $800 million

government-mandated treatment system for Greater Victoria’s sewage, here we have a private developer applying to the same government to discharge sewage on Sooke’s doorstep. Treatment of waste/ sewage water for this development should be built on land in a properly constructed and operating septic disposal field at the treatment plant. No discharge of effluent in the ocean environment should be allowed. The developer and the Ministry responsible should take a page from Victoria’s Dockside Green treatment system which is recognized as green and nonpolluting.    V.A.

The most common reason is from being on your phone but also there are many other reasons like putting on makeup and or drinking coffee. It’s okay when you’re parked in a parking lot but not when you’re driving on the road. Please put your phone down when you are driving and think about the example you are setting for us kids because we are going to be adults someday too and we would like to survive to get there. Emma Lemcke and Anya Nielsen-Rhoads Journey middle school

Aquaculture feedback encouraged (Response to Mr. Lambert, Letters to the Editor, May 28, 2014) We can understand your shock and concern at learning about T’Sou-ke Nation’s application for an aquaculture tenure in Anderson

Cove. T’Sou-ke Nation is deeply concerned about how our collective activities impact our environment and the health of our communities. As you have stated, T’Sou-ke has harvested the marine resources for thousands of years. We are saltwater people. We signed a Treaty with Governor Douglas to enshrine this principle and make it a right. However, the Crown has not lived up to their end of the bargain, and fails to recognize the Douglas Treaty that they signed. Bivalve shellfish are among the most dangerous foods that North Americans eat on a regular basis. As such the licensing, harvesting, processing, handling and exporting of bivalves is a very highly regulated industry. The protection of human health from serious illness or death remains a paramount concern for regulators. Failure to do so would close borders to export and decimate B.C.’s shellfish industry, a similar scenario to the mad cow crisis a decade ago. For T’Sou-ke to continue our heritage of harvest of marine resources, we must live in the modern world and live by the modern rules. In order for T’Souke Nation to access

: The 3 main risks are longevity, inflation & market risk. If you live too long you can outlive your income & investment portfolio, inflation eats away at the power of your dollar & when the markets go down your income and investments may do likewise. Fortunately with proper planning, these risks can be mitigated with investment capital & income guarantees that are only available through segregated funds.

Cont’d from page 10 shellfish at Anderson Cove, there is no other recourse than to place the site in a tenure. For us, it is strange to pay rent for the beach that we feel has always been ours. Others have had access to the site without placement in a tenure because they have ownership of a depuration processing plant. The application and approvals process is onerous, thorough and exact. The notification of local residences is intended to be via the local newspaper, FRAMED as all legal notices are in LATTICE B.C. We are obliged to TOP meet this requirement, among many others.

Tall Tree Festival gets better every year You heard right folks, the Tall Tree Music Festival is selling out faster than ever before. On Brown’s Mountain on June 27-29 in Port Renfrew. The stacked lineup is gaining accolades from media North America wide, with an ever growing interest in the boutique festival experience incorporating one hell of a view. Music giants Dan Mangan and Blacksmith, SonReal, Tipper, The Dudes, Pickwick, Jon and Roy, Longwalkshortdock, Bear Mountain, Lindi Ortega, Head of the Herd, Pete Murray, Mat the Alien, Neon Steve, Small Town DJs, Good for Grapes, The Matinee and Bestie (to name a few) grace the three stage festival Drawing a music savvy crowd looking for a festival experience left of centre from the mainstream scene, Tall Tree has it all: fantas-

19 years of age with two pieces of government ID to enter the festival. No ID = no entry. Absolutely zero tolerance for drinking and driving. There will be road blocks present. There is no cell reception in Port Renfrew. There is no gas sta-

tic vendors, food, art, activities and experiences - there is something for everyone. Supporting Canadian talent is a key mandate of the festival, including a small roster of American talent from the Pacific Northwest. You must be at least

tion in Port Renfrew: Fill up at either Lake Cowichan or Sooke on your way. There will be no ATM on site. Bring cash. No pets. No bottles or glass. No fires. No drugs or outside alcohol. Getting ready for Tall Tree: Be prepared for all weather: We can have sun and heat and also some rain. Prepare for it all. Be prepared for camping: Prepare your self to wake up to world class views. Be smart – Bring a flashlight (or two)

for the evening. Bring water to stay hydrated. Sunproofing and waterproofing is smart. Bring something to keep you cozy if it gets chilly. Be ready to walk on uneven ground: Some nice sturdy shoes are a great idea. Gum boots are fun for puddle jumping on the off chance it rains. The parking area is separate from the camping area. Make sure to secure your spot for Tall Tree 5. Tickets can be purchased at http://www. talltreemusicfestival. com.

Museum has lots happening

SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - Wednesday, june 4, 2014 2014

New exhibits and events

Sooke and studied classic history at Acadia University in Nova Scotia. She loves the design aspect of curating. Shambrook is in leading the charge on a major exhibition this summer to celebrate the tourism industry. The exhibit, Accommodating the World, will feature historically significant establishments such as: the Belvedere Hotel, Deer Trails, Mugford House, 17 Mile House and the Sooke Harbour House. The museum will be using some of the 14,000 artifacts from their collection for the exhibit and is asking the public to display any of their unique objects they may have from some of those establishments. They can be menus, pictures, furniture, or stories. “The ultimate goal since I started is to involve the community in as many ways as I can. I prefer the summer exhibit Accommodating the World to be a community event.” Anyone interested in sharing their objects and knowledge relevant to this exhibit contact Brianne Shambrook, exhibits manager, at 250-642-6351 or email: musasst@sookeregionmuseum.com.

he Sooke R e g i o n Museum is initiating some new programs this summer which will provide some entertainment for kids. Summer camp at the museum will come in two forms, a week-long camp or one-half day camps. “It is something I’ve wanted to do since I came back,” said Lee Boyko, Executive Director of the Sooke Region Museum. “We’ll test it out this year and see how it works.” The idea is for a week-long camp from July 21 to 25, and half days on most Mondays in July and August. The camps will have a lot of activities for kids such as photography, the old fashioned way with a dark room; a food day where kids will pick berries and make bannock; arts and crafts such as paper making. It all takes place on site or just a short walk away. “We have a combination of volunteers and staff who will work on this,” said Boyko.

Brianna Shambrook maintains museum exhibits. There’s lots more planned for the summer months. The museum’s annual open house and barbecue takes place on June 22 and on July 19 it’s Leechtown Day. The museum is working with other community groups to make this a fun event for kids and adults alike. Gold panning, kids games, music, contests,and for the adults a taste from Spinnakers Brew Pub. The Sooke Harbour Players will perform a skit and people will be in period costume at the museum. There will be Leechtown beef a.k.a. All Sooke Day beef, if anyone remembers what that was. An exhibit of the historic Flowline will be featured as well for nine

weeks in August. Volunteers are being sought for all of the activities with the exception of the summer camps. If anyone would like to be involved in the night markets, the 150th Leechtown anniversary, the annual open house of the flow line opening, contact Lee Boyko at: director@ sookeregionmusuem. com. There are eight new exhibits and refurbished older ones at the museum, many of them done by museum assistant Brianne Shambrook. “We’ve done a lot of work getting the space fixed up,” said Shambrook. “I’m looking forward to doing more programs.” Shambrook is from

Solving a 72-year-old mystery in the hills at Port Renfrew A collaborative operation between the BC Coroners Service and the federal Department of National Defence (DND) has resulted in the recovery and identification of an airplane and its crew that disappeared more than 70 years ago. The operation this month resulted in the recovery of remains and associated artefacts of the four airmen who had been on the Second World War training aircraft when it went missing on Oct. 30, 1942. Sergeant William Baird was from the Royal Canadian Air Force. The other three were all members of the British Royal Air Force. They have been identified as: Pilot Officer Charles Fox, Pilot Officer Anthony William Lawrence and Sergeant Robert Ernest Luckock. The four airmen had left the air force base at Patricia Bay in Sidney on a navigational training flight in the Avro Anson, but the aircraft failed to return to base as planned. Searches immediately following the disappearance did not locate the plane or any wreckage. In October 2013, a crew from a logging company that was working on a mountainside near Port Renfrew on southwestern Vancouver Island came upon the wreckage and immediately reported it to authorities. DND surveyed the site and discovered human remains and consulted with the BC Coroners Service. It was determined that environmental conditions were not suitable for a recovery operation at that time. On May 5, 2014, specialists from the BC Coroners Service, including its Identification

and Disaster Response Unit, returned to the site with National Defence specialists and over a period of several days worked together to recover, analyse and identify the remains recovered.

Canada’s Department of National Defence and Britain’s Ministry of Defense have contacted surviving family members of the deceased to inform them of the find and recovery.

Notice of Tax Exemption Amendment Bylaw No. 590

Pursuant to Section 227, and section 94 of the Community Charter Take notice that the Council of the District of Sooke will consider adoption of Bylaw No. 590, Sooke Town Centre Revitalization Amendment Bylaw (408-3) on:

Date: Time: Place: Pirjo Raits photo

Backyard chickens can provide a lot of eggs, but regulations need to be followed.

What you need to know about keeping chickens So, you want to farm. The first order of business, if you want to keep animals, is to check your local zoning bylaws. In Sooke Zoning Bylaw, 3.5 states that the keeping of livestock and male poultry ( roosters) is prohibited on lots less than 2,000 sq. meters in area. The keeping of female poultry ( hens) is prohibited on lots less than 600 m. squared. The keeping of up to six female (hens) in enclosed runs is permitted on lots less than 2000 meters squared but more than 600 meters squared. Runs

shall provide at least .8 m squared of space per bird and coops of at least .2 m. squared of space for bird. A building or structure used for the keeping of animals must not be located in the front yard and must be located at least six meters from any lot line. The second order of business is to ensure your building is secure. If you are raising chickens, the building must be sound with no holes for either mink or rats to enter. Chickens need to be locked up secure each eve-

ning or racoons will get your chickens. If you are in an open area, you may want to build a small, wired run for your chickens, to avoid hawks and eagles and ravens. When you are sure you have followed the bylaws, contacted your neighbours to make sure they too are comfortable with your activity and ask for their kitchen and garden waste for your chickens in exchange for the odd dozen eggs or just to help with their food waste or offer some of the composted chicken manure.

Be sure to feed only enough kitchen waste for the chickens to eat up during the day, so as to deter vermin. Keep food locked up in a tight container, bear, raccoon and vermin proof. Now you are ready to find some local lay birds. Check out the local farm guide or look on any of the kijiji sites or usedvictoria sites. More information to come and see you at the fall fair competition for your eggs or your hens. Ellen Lewers Sooke Fall Fair President

The purpose of Bylaw No. 590 is to amend Bylaw No. 408, Sooke Town Centre Revitalization Bylaw, 2009 to permit Built Green® buildings and construction types that would, in addition to LEED® be eligible for property value tax exemptions, reduced building permit fees and reduced development cost charges. Copies of the bylaw are available at the Municipal Office, 2205 Otter Point Road or on the website www.sooke.ca.

The Pastor's Pen Too easily and often, religious and secular people make status games of virtue and worth. I’m guilty, and I’ll bet that you are, too. 40 days after Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate ‘Ascension Day’ when Jesus ‘withdrew from (his disciples) and was carried into heaven’ (Luke 24:51). The teaching of Jesus on this day is compassion, not the rules of status games (e.g. be good like me by doing X, Y, Z and you too will be carried into heaven). This year, Ascension Day was May 29th. Although that was last week, I think the following applies, regardless. If you want to celebrate a great religious holiday in a wonderful way, be aware of those around you, and act with compassion towards them. Even better, motivated by your values and beliefs, be aware and practice compassion every day.

Regular Council Meeting Committee of the Whole Monday, June 9, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Mayor’s Public Advisory Panels Into the Mirror cast rehearses at the bandshell at Ed Macgregor Park.

Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words; other times, words are required to augment the story. Take this photo for example. In it, you’ll see most of the cast for the EMCS’s year-end production, Into The Mirror, at the bandstand at Ed Macgregor Park. In it, each actor assumes the character they will be living in the play. They look like a talented bunch. What this picture cannot tell you is that the play’s production was impacted by

the current dispute between B.C. politicians and our teachers. Because of the lockout, the instructors involved in supporting the students produce this musical could not attend rehearsals. The first thing this photo does not capture in a click is the students’ drive and initiative. Not letting politics get into the way of a hard-earned year-end show, these students self organized a rehearsal at Ed Macgregor Park. They themselves pulled it together, and pulled it off.

The second thing that this photo does not show is that when asked if they intend to vote as soon as they are legally able, all students in almost one voice replied with a passionate “Yes!” This response suggests that today’s youth are politically astute, with opinions of their own, eagerly awaiting the day where their opinion not just matters, but actually counts at the ballot. Presented in the context of this verbiage then, this photo suggests — even if it does not capture — evi-

Britt Santowski photo

dence for an involved electorate in the future. This group of today’s informed youth plan to be both seen and heard tomorrow. Literally, and metaphorically. “The cast and crew are a remarkable group of students,” remarked one of their teachers. “Their dedication is the reason ‘The show must go on’.” Into The Mirror enjoys it’s gala opening on Wednesday, June 4; the following night, Thursday, June 5, will be its closing night. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 7.

The public is invited to attend the Mayor’s Public Advisory Panel meetings at the Prestige Resort Meeting Room: - Economic Development - 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm - Arts and Beautification - 4th Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm This schedule is subject to change.

What kind of space is needed for centre? Over the next few weeks, the Sooke Region CHI is engaging residents to provide input on what type of community centre building is needed in Sooke. A few groups have actively demonstrated a need for space and services, providing CHI with reports and information that will aid the process. The strongest voice is coming from the Sooke Senior’s Drop-In Society, who have created a Visioning Document in their search for a permanent home. Some of their top priorities include activity and office space, a commercial kitchen, and ample accessible parking in a central location. The CHI has heard input from groups and

Local business employee honoured

individuals from the Sooke Region, which has sparked a lot of discussion around what is missing. All-purpose rooms, art creation and gallery space, meeting space, drop-in recreation space, and storage space are among the top concerns. Although finding a location will require more information on the required square footage, cost, etc., almost all citizens believe a community centre should be in the Sooke core, with the John Phillips region being the most popular choice by far. Additionally, it is possible that a new community centre is built alongside the new library. There is also talk about social enterprise opportunities, especially where youth

are concerned. Creating opportunities for skill development in local youth and special needs groups, along with the commission of art sales and facility rentals were noted as the top potential avenues of generating funds once a community centre is built. Youth participating in the discussion were very keen on sharing space and resources. They gave a noteworthy example of the Purple Thistle Arts Collective in Burnaby, which allows artists of all kinds to bring and use supplies for silk screening, painting, photography, bicycle building and more, in a drop-in setting. The community has also identified a number of potential part-

One of Sooke’s wildest businesses, Adrena LINE Zipline Adventure Tours, has an employee who won Employee of the Year at the 2014 Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce Business Awards held in April. Paul Rudd was named the winner at the gala evening. In the video accompanying his win, it stated operations manager Rudd handles all aspect of the hiring, training of employees as well as the regular maintenance of the zipline and the vehicles. In accepting his award Rudd said, “I don’t like the spotlight, but the recognition is pretty amazing.”

ners and the Sooke CHI will be contacting as many local groups and potential stakeholders as possible to gather more information. In addition, they are hosting a community forum with refreshments on Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Edward Milne community school.

80 year-old cyclist pedalling strong Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

On May 26, 2014, Josephine Drage — who her friends know as Josie — entered into her eighth decade of life. She celebrated this milestone with over a hundred friends in Esquimalt. And though she might be aging gracefully, she is certainly not slowing down. Four times a week, 80-year-old Josie loads her bike on the back of her diesel vehicle and drives to Victoria to cycle. She’s on a very structured schedule. On Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays she cycles; on Tuesdays she golfs; and on Thursdays (in the wet months) she curls. Saturdays are her putter-around-thehome days, and then she bakes, cleans, does the laundry and generally enjoys her home. “I like to be on the move,” she said. And one gets the feeling that sedentary down-time is a very rare occurrence in Josephine’s busy life. Looking back, she says she led a pretty active lifestyle. Except for when her four kids were younger. Then, most of her time was spent doing things for them. Josie took up (and excelled in) walking, speed walking and running. And in 2001, at 67 years old, Josephine

started cycling. For her efforts, she received a number of medals spanning the mid 1980s all the way to the late 90s. She has slowed down a little because of a heart condition (she had heart surgery in 2006), but she’s still going strong. When asked if she’s going fast enough, with a laugh in her eye she answers with an honest “No.” Aging does have it’s limitations, she admits. Hills slow her down, and when she needs to, she gets off her bike and walks the rest of a climb. But one thing Father Time cannot take away from Josephine is her stamina. “You have to have the energy and the will to persevere,” she said about cycling. Her sister forewarned her that if she was going to ride, she was also going to fall. She’s okay with that. “I’m not going to stop,” she says, showing the scars of five stitches under her chin. Josie recently took a spill that saw her flying off her bike, damaging her chin and teeth. “I haven’t broken a bone yet,” she laughed. Yes, she does go to Victoria to ride. “This is not a place to be riding,” she said, referencing Sooke. Victoria has a much better infrastructure for cycling.

Britt Santowski photos

Josephine Drage all geared up above; below are some of the awards she has received since 1984. Victoria also has the support. Josie is a member of the Cross Canada Cycle Tour Society (CCCTS), a group “formed in 1982,” according to their website at cccts. org.” In 1983, 35 members cycled from Victoria to St. John’s.” And while Josie has not cycled from coast to coast, she does partici-

pate in their short twoto three-day jaunts, both here in B.C. as well as in Ontario. CCCTS meets three times a week in Victoria, on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays. Josie estimates there are about 100 people who periodically participate, ranging in age from 50 and up. On Fridays, Josie rides with a smaller

group, also in Victoria. Anyone interested in this cycling group should visit their website for the local day rides, cccts.org. Their website indicates that “We are a non-profit organization for active adults of all ages. Our members are mainly retired people and others who enjoy recreational cycling.”

Pre-atom Seahawks end their regular season with a win The Sooke Pre-Atom Seahawks finished their impressive regular season with an aggressive 18-0 win over their rivals from Westshore on June 1 at Goudy Field. Once again Hunter Swift got Sooke off to a fast start with his power running. Swift ran for a long touchdown on the third play of the game, and would go on to throw key blocks on both the other Seahawk scores. He also led the way on defence, punishing Warrior ball carriers all morning. James Mullen and Wesley Cornwall-Johnsen also dominated. Both had nice runs and threw big blocks on offence. Cornwall-Johnsen scored Sooke’s final touchdown late in the fourth quarter, his first ever. And defensively, Mullen from his defensive tackle position and Cornwall-Johnsen beside him at defensive end, constantly disrupted anything Westshore tried to run. The other Sooke touchdown was scored by Malaki Allen, the third straight game he found pay-dirt. None of the running success would have happened without the great blocking of Tagish Page, Austin Warren, Logan Bainbridge and Michael

Lundell. Warren and Lundell each recovered fumbles as part of a defensive effort that swarmed the Warrior attack. Westshore ball carriers constantly found themselves being tackled by four, five, even six Seahawk defenders. No where was this more evident than in backto-back goalline stands where twice Westshore had first and goal from inside Sooke’s five-yard line, but couldn’t manage a score. Gabe Nelson, Brody Reinsch, and Weston White played key roles in this suffocating defensive effort. So did Christian Kaisinger, who also recovered a fumble, and Dayton Planes. The latter two filled in admirably when starting QB and key defensive player Connor Keys hurt his hand in the third quarter. Kaisinger led a touchdown drive at QB in the fourth quarter (including handing off to Planes for Planes’ first ever carry), and Planes on defense made sure no Warrior found any outside running room. Players from the Westshore Rebels Junior Football squad attended the game, volunteering as water boys and holding the

U16 boys softball fundraise to play off-island tournaments Britt Santowski photo

Quinn Titchkosky, Noah Wass, Mike Connor (Assistant Coach), and Kieran Connor strike a pose for the camera in their efforts to strike it rich — or at least raise significant funds — at this past weekend’s fundraising sale.

Britt Santowski Sooke News Mirror

The U16 boys’ softball team are a very unique group of boys. In what one of the parents referred to as a dying sport, these softball players have been playing together for over a decade. The team of 11 has their challenges though. One of the biggest is that there is a lack of competition on the Island, and they often have to go to the mainland to play. They play competitively within their own team, and the local girls give them strong competition as well. But to expand their playing field (so to speak), they do need to travel to the mainland. Just recently, they

played in Richmond where they came in fourth in the tournament. Assistant Coach Mike Connor estimates that they need to go off-Island at least three times a year. To help offset their costs, the team does a lot of fundraising around town. “We’ve always had good support from the community,” said Michelle Wass, one of the fundraising co-ordinators for the team. Their next off-Island jaunt will be to play in the BC Provincials, happening in Clearwater from July 4 - 6, and both the players and the adults are actively fundraising for that excursion. This past weekend they were out selling Kristy Kremes. Next weekend, on June 7, they

will be hosting a bottledrive at the Welcome to Sooke sign. That daytime event will be followed by a “Beer and Burger” night at Buffy’s. Tickets for that event are $12. The evening event also includes a silent auction, to which many local businesses have generously contributed. Not all games are off the Island though.

This year, the BC Summer Games are being hosted in Nanaimo, and the Western Canadian Championships take place in Duncan. “It’s a lucky year,” observed Doug Titchkosky, one of the parents. Lucky, yes. But they’ll still need support getting their boys off the Island. So look for them next weekend when you have your bottles in the back of the car. And if you want to participate in the Beer and Burger fundraising event at Buffy’s, you can either buy your ticket at the door or reserve in advance by phoning Michelle Wass at 250642-7224.

Motorcycle riding in groups has merits

Britt Santowski THROTTLE THERAPY

britt@imallowed.com

Recently, I was lucky enough to join in on a group ride. On May 15, I attended the Biker Blessing, facilitated by Reverend Gordon Kouwenberg of the Knox Presbyterian Church here in Sooke. I then rode with them on their group ride. Generally, I am a solo artist, an introvert who really REALLY enjoys being alone. Really. That said, group riding does have some nice attributes. These are some of them. It’s sometimes nice to be a part of a group. The solo rider must be forever vigilant of vehicles in front and those behind. When you’re in a group, while

you must first get a feel for the rider in front and behind you, once you get their riding style you can relax the hyper-vigilance. Of course, you may still be constantly placing yourself, but it’s a different kind of alertness that’s required.

There is safety in numbers. I know this is obvious, but there are also less obvious advantages. For example, as each member of the group passed an object in the middle of lane, they alerted those behind by pointing to it as they passed. When it was my turn, I passed “the point” along to those behind me. Oh yeah, it’s okay to take your hand off the throttle to point at a road hazard when you must. Also, and this sort of goes with out saying, but there is no driver in the world that can miss a group of 50 plus riders. Even if the group gets split, it’s okay. You will be noticed. Ride according to the rider staggered before you.

If someone falls out of formation up ahead, it’s not your job to passive-aggressively micro-manage the situation. Your job is simply to ride staggered to the rider ahead of you. When that person rides left, you go right, and vice versa. When they ride in the centre of their lane, cornering or on narrow lanes, fall back and do the same. Dominant lane position is irrelevant. Need I say more? The thundering group creates its own dominance. End of concept. Group riding is a beautiful dance. I was reminded the beauty of the group ride when the group collapsed like an accordion at stops, and expanded on acceleration. The automatic shift to single lane riding around curves was magical. When done correctly, with everyone doing their thing, it’s a beautiful beautiful thing. Ride your own ride. No matter what, ride for yourself. This can-

You can still ride in a group and be an introvert. I did have to mingle before the ride, but that was in part because my job (as reporter) requires it. However, once in the group ride, I was able to nurture my inner introvert and regain my energy. Start the bike, shut the visor, crawl into my head and ride. Yep. It worked. I was rejuvenated. Lastly, and this has nothing to do with the group-riding thing, I got my first tailpipe burn. No, I don’t really want to talk about it. Be the difference

Atom Seahawks win 32-0 against Westshore

“Rumbling” Riley Stratton got ready to sack the quarterback from Westshore for the second time. Along with Spencer Logan and Nick Fury, Stratton had too many sacks to count. L.P. Gagnon, Montague, Carrier, Heslop, Stewart, and Ceda, handled the Warrior’s offence allowing only two first downs and no points! Kicker Stratton booted the ball 35 or more yards in the air. This was the furthest the Seahawk kickers have kicked all season. The offence was led by Tank Logan, who barreled his way on at least five wedges up the gut, running like a gazelle on two 25-yard runs leading to his two touchdowns. Roadrunner Cheng swept to the outside and had his season long touchdown of over 40 yards. Nick “fury” Heslop rounded off the scoring with a nimble zigzagging 30 yard touchdown. Jared Steele had four conversion kicks on the day as well. The final score 32-0. Submitted by Andy Carrier

not be emphasized enough. I know I said earlier to follow the lead of the staggered rider ahead of you, but like Life Herself, there are exceptions. For instance, when one rider stopped in the middle of an intersection, no one followed that lead. The hazard was too high. However, the group lead did pull over on the straightaway up-head, where it was safe to do so, and the group waited for the others to catch up.

Water Conservation Tip: Let your grass go golden. Most people are actively finding ways to conserve water. You can make a difference too. Lawns not watered in the summer will go dormant or ‘golden’. Lawns will green up again with the autumn rains. For more water-saving tips, visit www.crd.bc.ca/water, or call 250.474.9684.
