Crowd-funding a kids’ book Lindsay Chung

THE CHRONICLE

Colin Pickell of Ladysmith has always dreamed of writing a book. And now his dream is one crowdfunding campaign away from becoming reality. Pickell — who manages The 49th Café in town — has written a children’s book called Who Will Tuck Me Into Bed?, featuring illustrations by Amanda Key, a recent graduate of the Vancouver Island University graphic design program. Pickell and his wife have two sons, aged seven and five, and when his oldest was a baby, as a new dad, Pickell loved singing him to sleep at night. One night, he had an idea that made him laugh — what if he were an opera singer, and he didn’t know how soothe his son to sleep because all he knew how to do was belt out operas? “From there, I just kind of imagined what about a family where everybody has a talent, and they’re very worthwhile talents, but not when you’re trying to soothe a child to sleep,” he recalled. “So I created this family of really loving, really sweet people who try really hard to tuck him into bed, but it doesn’t work because it makes him more awake. The father’s an opera singer. The mother’s a writer, but she only writes thriller novels so all of her stories scare the heck out of him. And there’s a grandma and a brother and a sister and an uncle, so I just kind of got this idea, kind of a twist on Joey Rice adjusts his cap as he prepares to walk into the gym at Ladysmith Secondary School Friday, June the bedtime routine.

them each take their turn because he just loves them and he doesn’t want to offend them.” Who Will Tuck Me Into Bed? is a rhyming book because those are the books Pickell loves to read to his children. Pickell says he started making a conscious effort to write the book about two and a half years ago. “I had the idea, but every time I’d sit down to write it, I’d get frustrated because I couldn’t get past the first paragraph or two and gave up, so about two and a half years ago, I started really actively writing it,” he said. “I’d take breaks, and I’d get writer’s block. Then I contacted a lot of publishers and agents. The children’s book market’s pretty saturated, and I wasn’t able to crack it, so I decided to look into doing it myself, and that’s when I found Amanda. Along the way, I had Kickstarter recommended to me by a few different people.” Pickell says it is frightening to take this idea that was in his head for so long and put it out there, ready for people to enjoy or critique. “I’ve never really done a creative project like this before, and it’s a little bit intimidating,” he said “But it’s exciting, and the response has been great.” Pickell’s campaign had already raised 16 per cent of its goal before it had even been up for 24 hours. “People are really getting behind it, and I feel really lucky to have a community of supporters,” said Pickell. “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and I think writing See Kickstarter Page 3

First Nations Craft Fair this Saturday

This Saturday (June 14), local First Nations artists will be selling their paintings, beadings and other arts during a craft fair from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Husky gas station on the Island Highway just north of Ladysmith.

Learn about succession planning June 18

Succession planning? What does it mean for you or your business? For some, it is building employee capacity within your business to free you up to take on new opportunities. Others look at it as a strategy to sell or exit their business. Many look at it as a tool for providing business continuity through possible challenges. On Wednesday, June 18, the Ladysmith Downtown Business Association, the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce, Global Vocational Services and Dynamic HR Solutions Inc. are hosting an interactive two-hour session that provides practical solutions and thought-provoking business planning ideas. The evening session will be facilitated by Ginger Brunner of Dynamic HR Solutions Inc. and Jack Tieleman of Global Vocational Services (GVS). Brunner is a Certified Human Resources Professional with two decades of experience. In addition to owning/ operating Dynamic HR Solutions Inc., Brunner teaches at Camosun College. Tieleman is one of the owners of GVS and is currently part of a succession plan that will see him take ownership of the company this fall.

THE CHRONICLE

A group of Ladysmith residents are still frustrated at the lack of response with a hydrocarbon issue along Forward Road. Russel Barling led a delegation of residents speaking at the June 2 council meeting with the issue still to be resolved. Hydrocarbons were first detected closeby in 2005, and it was concluded the source of contamination was Dalby’s Services Ltd., which is now closed. “I wish we didn’t have to be here,” Barling said at the meeting. “Hydrocarbons have migrated onto Forward Road. None of our recommendations have ever been followed up. The Town needs to have the problem resolved. Hydrocarbons are still present nearly a decade after they were first discovered.” Barling stated the hydrocarbons are a threat to public health, and studies into the situation have cost town taxpayers around $40,000. The Town of Ladysmith has consistently stated it is the responsibility of the Ministry of Environment to clean up the problem. In 2005, the ministry said “the contamination presents a high risk under normal conditions.” “This has been a long standing problem,” said Coun. Gord Horth. “It’s important to note this has been an active file. It’s been taken seriously by council. The challenge has been a matter of jurisdiction, and it’s the ministry’s jurisdiction. The Town has petitioned the ministry many times to do something.

It’s been a frustrating process, and the levels of government have chosen not to work on the jurisdiction.” In 2005, the Town asked the ministry to reconsider its position on the site, and late last year, the Town sent letters requesting more assistance. The ministry indicated it would pursue if the problem became “high risk.” John Manson, the Town’s director of infrastructure services, also spoke at the meeting. “I have done a quick review of the file,” he said. “In 2005, tests did show hydrocarbon contamination. The management of contaminated sites is provincial legislation. We’ve written to the ministry at least seven times. The responsible party is the property owner that created the contamination. The property has been offered for sale. If a new party was to come in, they’d be required to follow a contamination site profile, and that wouldn’t go well.” Manson admitted the chances of the site being sold with hydrocarbons still present are pretty slim. “We’re open to talking to any interested parties but we can’t approve a building permit unless the work from the ministry is done,” he said. All of the council members present and Town staff believe the Town must continue to lobby the ministry for action. “I would like to take the strongest action possible, stating our frustration, and see us write a letter not just to the ministry but to the MLAs as well,” said Coun. Steve Arnett, who chaired the meeting in Mayor Rob Hutchins’ absence.”The Town can’t go

into the ministry’s jurisdiction. We will act in whatever parameters we can act, in due diligence. We’re committed to working with you (Barling and residents of Forward Road) to the best of our abilities. We are all caught in this mud and mire.” Barling has little sympathy for and with the Town. “The Town has said it is a victim, and I don’t understand that,” he said. “Dalby’s continued to be renewed a business licence. You should have said the licence was subject to them cleaning up.” City manager Ruth Malli said “the ability to withhold that is very limited.” Barling also believes there has been a transparency issue on the Town’s part. Arnett disagreed. “Nobody would withhold information that put the health of our residents at risk,” he said. Forward Road resident Jim Noone claims he recently saw Mayor Rob Hutchins digging in the area for the apparent contaminated tank setting off the hydrocarbons. “The mayor had no protective clothing on. I’m astounded he would put himself at risk, not only the whole street. One spark would’ve set the whole thing off,” he said. Noone also believes the town has “never acted on any recommendations given” by the Forward Road residents. “There has been action; I’m sorry it hasn’t satisfied you,” Arnett said in response to Noone. “If there are legal constraints on what we can share, that’s the way it is. We are prepared to show up in an office if we have to.”

Kickstarter campaign goes to July 2 From Page 1 has always kind of been in my blood. People like supporting something if they feel like ‘he’s finally gotten around to doing it; let’s get behind him’ so that’s pretty neat to see.” The Kickstarter campaign runs until July

2, and Pickell’s goal is to raise $7,000. The money raised from this Kickstarter campaign will go towards hiring Key to complete the rest of the illustrations, and towards the costs of the first print run of the hardcover edition of the book. They will also pro-

duce it as an illustrated e-book with audio of Pickell reading the book, plus distribution through iTunes and Amazon, Amazon Kindle, Kobo and other channels. Learn more at www. kickstarter.com/projects/543139325/whowill-tuck-me-into-bed.

LRCA hosting “Fancy-plants” sale our programs. Many of those programs have long wait lists, and it is taking longer and longer for families to access the programs. The loss of funding means we can’t expand our programs to accommodate families and individuals more quickly.” “The people of Ladysmith are unique in their generosity, which is evident when you look at our Food Bank and Christmas Cheer Fund, both of which receive regular funding from many sources,” she added. “This may be because people like to have a vision of who they are helping with their donations. When it is an organization like the Resources Centre  itself  that needs help, it is less obvious that we are assisting the same families who are helped through the Food Bank and Christmas Cheer in different, but equally deserving, areas of their lives. It is not just LRCA staff and programs that feel the impact of loss of funding; the people

in town who depend on us lose much-needed support. I guess we are hoping that if people become more familiar with the centre, they will recognize that need, and help us in our fundraising efforts.” The LRCA staff, board members, volunteers and members of the community have created a fundraising committee, and they are working to come up with creative funding ideas to support the Resources Centre. The idea of a “Fancy-plants” Plant and Bake Sale was one of the ideas born out of this effort. Warren says they have been overwhelmed by how many people and businesses have volunteered to make the Plant and Bake Sale Fundraiser a success. Participants with green thumbs have been collecting unique and imaginative containers, and working hard to pot garden plants which have been purchased at significant savings, or been

donated by the 49th  Parallel Garden Centre and Shar-Kare Feed and Pet Supplies. Volunteers will be barbecuing hot dogs donated by Country Grocer. Hot dogs and pop will be sold for a toonie. There will be popcorn and cupcakes available for a loonie and free coffee and tea for adults. Our new neighbour, Save-On-Foods, will be providing water by donation. LRCA staff members and friends will be baking items for the Bake Sale, and local artists have been crafting and donating garden “whimsies,” such as totems made of glass, silver and china. There will be a silent auction where people can bid on these oneof-a-kind pieces of garden art. People can support the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association and its programs by attending this fundraiser Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Resources Centre at 630 Second Ave. — Submitted by LRCA

This year has seen some changes to funding at the Ladysmith Resources Centre Association (LRCA),  resulting in significant cuts to the funds they count on in their annual budget. Shrinking funding sources are affecting many organizations in the Cowichan Valley, and dollars are being stretched between existing agencies. Losing funding dollars makes it a challenge to continue to run some community programs without cutbacks. The ultimate goal of the LRCA, like every non-profit organization facing dwindling financial donations, is to achieve sustainability through social enterprise, but that is a long-range aspiration, and there is a need for immediate support. “It’s hard to ask for help, but we need some right now,” said Cindy Warren, program manager at the LRCA. “We depend on funding to run

YOUR WORDS

We must reaffirm we are a nation of equals Editor: I am not a racist. I am not a bigot. I believe all humans are created equal. I enjoy the company of people from all walks of life, all levels of education, all colors of skin and all ethnic origins, and most religions. How then can I bring myself to accept that certain people in our country should have rights that all Canadians don’t enjoy? I can’t. Our so-called leaders have been negotiating away these equalities since the country was formed, so that now in fear of some adverse reactions that might occur if we don’t acquiesce, we find ourselves being threatened with blockades, denial of access to roads and waterways, separation, and other unspecified civil disobedience. Canada has become a nation divided into three camps. On the one hand we have the majority of taxpayers going about their business of trying to raise families and earn a living and pay their taxes, and on the other hand, we have people trying to figure out the best way to separate these funds from the government for their own benefit, or create rules that don’t apply to everyone. No one alive today can claim to have ancestors who were the “first“ people on this continent. And even if they could, why should that entitle anyone to a larger share of the countries’ wealth than anyone else? We are a capitalist democracy. You get your share in proportion to your contribution. You work, you get paid, you buy what you need. I get it, that along with that freedom goes the responsibility to help those who can’t help themselves, and we have established a pretty good system of healthcare, education and welfare funding for those individuals. In Canada, any race or religion can preserve its own identity and language and many do just that, on their own, without any government funding. I don’t buy that any small minority group in this country has any right to bar any other groups or citizens from access to public lands and waters anywhere in this country, and the sooner our elected officials confirm this fact, the better for all Canadians. The first order of business is to affirm just what are the public lands and waterways. The next is to reaffirm that we are an nation of equals, not a group of unequal nations.

Celebrating our community spirit Ladysmith Matters by Mayor Rob Hutchins

W

hat a wonderful weekend of celebrating community spirit in the Town of Ladysmith we have just had. This weekend bore witness to three exceptional examples of individuals, organizations and businesses stepping forward to ensure our community is the best it can be. The spirit of generosity in our community is truly exceptional. The ‘Community Spirit’ On Saturday, June 7, before a large crowd at the Ladysmith Maritime Heritage Festival on the LMS Community Marina docks, members of the Ladysmith and District Marine Rescue Society and the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 29 officially dedicated their new rescue vessel the “Community Spirit.” What a most appropriate name! Station 29, based at the Oak Bay Marine Group’s Ladysmith Marina, is a volunteer organization that has provided marine search and rescue in our local wa-

ters for over fifteen years. Their area of responsibility stretches from Dodd Narrows in the north to Sansum Narrows in the south. Station 29 is one of busiest marine search and rescue stations on the B.C. coast, responding to over 50 calls a year. Some 24 men and women make up the Ladysmith and District Marine Rescue Society. These dedicated and determined community volunteers raised over $340,000 over the last two and a half years to purchase the new rescue boat, lift, trailer, and other necessary equipment.

time Society volunteers under the leadership of Shirley Blackstaff and Marnie Craig have created an incredible showcase of our waterfront history. On Saturday June 7, during the Ladysmith Maritime Heritage Festival, which is also sponsored and organized by the volunteers of Ladysmith Maritime Society, I had the opportunity to drop in to the Heritage Centre and discovered to my delight the newly-delivered model of the great coaling wharf that once dwarfed the landscape at what is now Transfer Beach Park. The model, originally started by the late Guy Brooks (creator of the Ladysmith Waterfront Log Dump Diorama) some five years ago, was completed over the past year in the basement of a home in Maple Bay by model railway builders Dave Ames, Harry Southern, Ken Black, Bob Hartl, Victor Gerwin, Jim Irvine, Vies Salanski and Bill Hooks and model ship builder Colin MacLock. Collectively they gave hundreds of hours of volunteer time. None of these men re-

Finishing touches are underway, including the addition of a model of an early sailing ship under construction by Colin MacLock. LSS Graduation On Friday, June 6, the commencement ceremonies were held at Ladysmith Secondary School. The awarding of scholarships and bursaries is a tradition at graduation ceremonies to provide assistance to students entering their next level of training and to recognize the breadth of talent and accomplishments of the members of the graduating class. True to form, the generosity of this community is simply outstanding. Over $104,000 in bursaries and scholarships was awarded on Friday night. The contributions per capita far exceed that of any high school in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith School District.

LSS students grateful for chance to share their artwork Lindsay Chung THE CHRONICLE

Local students are getting a chance to share their artistic talents with the community and with visitors by hanging their art on the walls of the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery this month. The Student Artistry show, which runs for the month of June, features the work of students from area schools and the gallery. Thirty-four students from Ladysmith Secondary School (LSS) will be part of the show. Samanta De Souza, who is in Grade 11, is one of the students participating in the show. “I think it’s going to be an experience from a different perspective,” she said. “We’re so used to having our art judged by ourselves and our peers. It’s going to be interesting to have feedback from an adult perspective and people who have been doing it for years.” Angela O’Donnell, a Grade 11 student, says she is excited to have something she worked on displayed. Grade 12 student Kirstin Purslow submitted a portrait of her great-grandfather, who was a chief, into the art show. “I’m glad that I get to showcase my heritage with it,” she said. De Souza has put a painting into the show that features quotes, colours and images that inspire her. “I painted it because I thought I needed an image of what my heart wants,” she said. O’Donnell created a series of stencils, and she will show stencils

students, especially when it’s in their home community. “What you see in this community and at the gallery is a real respect for what they do,” she said. “It gives them so much — it gives them a sense of belonging, self-esteem, a sense of the importance of their own individuality, that sense of being a part of a community but being able to be free to be an LSS Grade 11 student Sarah Genge hangs art for the Student Artistry show, individual.” which runs this month at the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery.

Grade 9 student Emmilly Benson says she is “very, very, very excited” to display her work in the art show. Benson will show a painting of a medal with a little girl in it as well as an exercise cube and a dragon sculpture. Grade 9 student Kathryn Schertzer is submitting a clay project featuring a mother and a child that represents joy, as well as a clock with words that represent what she wants to be in her life. “I feel excited and very honoured to have my piece of art in the show,” she said.

Teachers’ Federation is voting June 9 and 10 whether to authorize es- council will consider calation to full-scale job action.  Lindsay Chung the recommendation on Monday, June 16. Last year, 67 people from Ladysmith and 39 from Chemainus received support from Cowichan Valley Hospice, according to president Mary Ann Deacon and executive director Gretchen Hartley. This included oneto-one and group emotional support for people diagnosed with an advancing illness and their families, and others grieving the death of a loved one. Cowichan Valley Hospice also offers advance health care planning education and information. “In our community, we have among the highest proportions of aging people in B.C. who will need hospice services, and conversely, in coming years, the region will have a declining proportion of potential caregivers from within

the working-age population,” stated Deacon and Hartley. “Cowichan Valley Hospice is working with our community to develop the care that is needed now and into the future. Ongoing funding from the CVRD will provide a solid anchor for hospice services. It also sends a strong signal about our community’s commitment to the ongoing development of end-oflife and bereavement care.” Hospice services are provided free of charge to more than 800 people a year because of community fundraising, personal and corporate donations and annual grants from Gaming and the Cowichan United Way, according to Deacon and Hartley. Currently, Island Health provides a small amount of funding. “The most significant contribution to hospice care is the work of our volunteers, which, when calculated at a rate of $16.50 per hour, was worth $201,041 in 2013,” stated Deacon and Hartley. CVRD regional service funding must be approved by all municipal councils and Electoral Area directors and through a public approval process. Deacon and Hartley encourage residents who feel hospice care is important to speak up.

Twilight Shuffle celebrates 30 years The Chemainus Legion Twilight Shuffle 5K Run/Walk takes place Tuesday, June 24 Lindsay Chung THE CHRONICLE

Many might consider the Chemainus Legion Twilight Shuffle 5K Run/Walk unique because it takes place on a Tuesday evening. Or because it takes participants right through the heart of downtown. But it could also be its age and longevity – the event is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, after all. The Chemainus Legion is preparing to host the Twilight Shuffle 5K Run/ Walk in downtown Chemainus Tuesday, June 24 at 7 p.m. Chemaninus-born marathoner Phil Nicholls and his mother Lorna started the Twilight Shuffle 30 years ago to celebrate athletics and youth in the community. “Starting the Twilight Shuffle with my mother in 1984 was a great way to give back to the community where I had my start in running” said the three-time winner of the Victoria Marathon. “This year, we’re encouraging everyone to take part to celebrate the long history of this event and raise money for an important cause — supporting our Legion.” Over the years, the Twilight Shuffle has raised money for various organizations, but for the last 10 years, it has focused on the Lorna Nicholls Memorial Bursary, which is awarded to a local high school student with athletic talent who is pursuing postsecondary education. “It is great to give back to the community while honouring one of our former members,” Janet Mitchell, an executive member of the Chemainus Legion, said in a press release.

olls has done a lot to attract crowds, including offering unique prizes, and he started bringing in entertainers. Country singer Michelle Wright was the first entertainer to sing the national anthem and then perform at the Legion.

Ladysmith Maritime Heritage Day

The Ladysmith Maritime Society (LMS) hosted its Ladysmith Maritime Heritage Day festivities Saturday, June 7 at the LMS Community Marina. Clockwise from top left, Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) Unit 29 station leader Nick Epp-Evans speaks during the dedication ceremony for RCM-SAR Unit 29’s new rescue vessel, which was named the Community Spirit by Betty Seaton; Bruce Thompson checks out Cape Naden, the Canadian Coast Guard vessel from Ganges on Salt Spring Island; Charles Schell (left) and boat owners Angie Beltane and Rick Waddell relax on Dog Star; boaters get ready for a harbour tour aboard the Maritimer; and a hovercraft tour leaves the dock.  Lindsay Chung

Roelants named federal NDP candidate for Nanaimo-Ladysmith Dominique Roelants was recently approved by the federal NDP as a candidate for the NDP nomination in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith federal riding in the next election. Roelants, who lives between Ladysmith and Nanaimo, is a professor at Vancouver Island University, a lawyer, vice-chair of the B.C. College Pension Board and a director of Island Savings Credit Union. “With my background and experience, I believe I would be an asset to the NDP caucus and would attract the votes of people who would not normally consider voting NDP,” he said in a press release. Roelants says he wants to run

because “we need to make sure that the NDP wins this seat. The Conservatives are draining Canada economically, destroying it environmentally, and damaging our reputation in the world. I believe in fiscal responsibility, and that involves responsibility to all of Canadian society, including future generations.” The new Nanaimo-Ladysmith federal electoral district was created earlier this year as a result of redistribution. Local MP Jean Crowder has stated she will not be running for re-election in 2015. When asked about his priorities, Roelants said his values are driven by the concept of “equality of opportunity.”

His priorities include expansion of the Canada Pension Plan to ensure people can retire with a decent income, protection of the environment, and an economy that works for everyone. Roelants sees his priorities as the exact opposite of the Conservative agenda. “Harper’s Conservative government is failing us on the environment, they are failing us in health care and they are failing to manage the economy in a way that helps ordinary Canadians,” he said. “We need a government that will put the needs of Canadian citizens ahead of the needs Dominique Roelants, a professor at Vancouver Island University and lawof multinational corporations.” — Submitted yer, has been approved as the federal NDP candidate.

Opinion

YOUR WORDS

We must reaffirm we are a nation of equals Editor: I am not a racist. I am not a bigot. I believe all humans are created equal. I enjoy the company of people from all walks of life, all levels of education, all colors of skin and all ethnic origins, and most religions. How then can I bring myself to accept that certain people in our country should have rights that all Canadians don’t enjoy? I can’t. Our so-called leaders have been negotiating away these equalities since the country was formed, so that now in fear of some adverse reactions that might occur if we don’t acquiesce, we find ourselves being threatened with blockades, denial of access to roads and waterways, separation, and other unspecified civil disobedience. Canada has become a nation divided into three camps. On the one hand we have the majority of taxpayers going about their business of trying to raise families and earn a living and pay their taxes, and on the other hand, we have people trying to figure out the best way to separate these funds from the government for their own benefit, or create rules that don’t apply to everyone. No one alive today can claim to have ancestors who were the “first“ people on this continent. And even if they could, why should that entitle anyone to a larger share of the countries’ wealth than anyone else? We are a capitalist democracy. You get your share in proportion to your contribution. You work, you get paid, you buy what you need. I get it, that along with that freedom goes the responsibility to help those who can’t help themselves, and we have established a pretty good system of healthcare, education and welfare funding for those individuals. In Canada, any race or religion can preserve its own identity and language and many do just that, on their own, without any government funding. I don’t buy that any small minority group in this country has any right to bar any other groups or citizens from access to public lands and waters anywhere in this country, and the sooner our elected officials confirm this fact, the better for all Canadians. The first order of business is to affirm just what are the public lands and waterways. The next is to reaffirm that we are an nation of equals, not a group of unequal nations.

Celebrating our community spirit Ladysmith Matters by Mayor Rob Hutchins

W

hat a wonderful weekend of celebrating community spirit in the Town of Ladysmith we have just had. This weekend bore witness to three exceptional examples of individuals, organizations and businesses stepping forward to ensure our community is the best it can be. The spirit of generosity in our community is truly exceptional. The ‘Community Spirit’ On Saturday, June 7, before a large crowd at the Ladysmith Maritime Heritage Festival on the LMS Community Marina docks, members of the Ladysmith and District Marine Rescue Society and the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 29 officially dedicated their new rescue vessel the “Community Spirit.” What a most appropriate name! Station 29, based at the Oak Bay Marine Group’s Ladysmith Marina, is a volunteer organization that has provided marine search and rescue in our local wa-

ters for over fifteen years. Their area of responsibility stretches from Dodd Narrows in the north to Sansum Narrows in the south. Station 29 is one of busiest marine search and rescue stations on the B.C. coast, responding to over 50 calls a year. Some 24 men and women make up the Ladysmith and District Marine Rescue Society. These dedicated and determined community volunteers raised over $340,000 over the last two and a half years to purchase the new rescue boat, lift, trailer, and other necessary equipment. The rescue boat crew is made up of volunteers of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 29. These individuals undergo extensive training and are on call 24/7/365 to help ensure marine rescue services are always available.

time Society volunteers under the leadership of Shirley Blackstaff and Marnie Craig have created an incredible showcase of our waterfront history. On Saturday June 7, during the Ladysmith Maritime Heritage Festival, which is also sponsored and organized by the volunteers of Ladysmith Maritime Society, I had the opportunity to drop in to the Heritage Centre and discovered to my delight the newly-delivered model of the great coaling wharf that once dwarfed the landscape at what is now Transfer Beach Park. The model, originally started by the late Guy Brooks (creator of the Ladysmith Waterfront Log Dump Diorama) some five years ago, was completed over the past year in the basement of a home in Maple Bay by model railway builders Dave Ames, Harry Southern, Ken Black, Bob Hartl, Victor Gerwin, Jim Irvine, Vies Salanski and Bill Hooks and model ship builder Colin MacLock. Collectively they gave hundreds of hours of volunteer time. None of these men re-

side in our community, but they were willing to give freely of themselves to help make Ladysmith history come alive. We thank them for their generosity. The model is not quite complete. Finishing touches are underway, including the addition of a model of an early sailing ship under construction by Colin MacLock. LSS Graduation On Friday, June 6, the commencement ceremonies were held at Ladysmith Secondary School. The awarding of scholarships and bursaries is a tradition at graduation ceremonies to provide assistance to students entering their next level of training and to recognize the breadth of talent and accomplishments of the members of the graduating class. True to form, the generosity of this community is simply outstanding. Over $104,000 in bursaries and scholarships was awarded on Friday night. The contributions per capita far exceed that of any high school in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith School District.

LSS students grateful for chance to share their artwork Lindsay Chung THE CHRONICLE

Local students are getting a chance to share their artistic talents with the community and with visitors by hanging their art on the walls of the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery this month. The Student Artistry show, which runs for the month of June, features the work of students from area schools and the gallery. Thirty-four students from Ladysmith Secondary School (LSS) will be part of the show. Samanta De Souza, who is in Grade 11, is one of the students participating in the show. “I think it’s going to be an experience from a different perspective,” she said. “We’re so used to having our art judged by ourselves and our peers. It’s going to be interesting to have feedback from an adult perspective and people who have been doing it for years.” Angela O’Donnell, a Grade 11 student, says she is excited to have something she worked on displayed. Grade 12 student Kirstin Purslow submitted a portrait of her great-grandfather, who was a chief, into the art show. “I’m glad that I get to showcase my heritage with it,” she said. De Souza has put a painting into the show that features quotes, colours and images that inspire her. “I painted it because I thought I needed an image of what my heart wants,” she said. O’Donnell created a series of stencils, and she will show stencils

students, especially when it’s in their home community. “What you see in this community and at the gallery is a real respect for what they do,” she said. “It gives them so much — it gives them a sense of belonging, self-esteem, a sense of the importance of their own individuality, that sense of being a part of a community but being able to be free to be an LSS Grade 11 student Sarah Genge hangs art for the Student Artistry show, individual.” which runs this month at the Ladysmith Waterfront Gallery.

Grade 9 student Emmilly Benson says she is “very, very, very excited” to display her work in the art show. Benson will show a painting of a medal with a little girl in it as well as an exercise cube and a dragon sculpture. Grade 9 student Kathryn Schertzer is submitting a clay project featuring a mother and a child that represents joy, as well as a clock with words that represent what she wants to be in her life. “I feel excited and very honoured to have my piece of art in the show,” she said.
