Jordan River beach front gets shored up Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

Construction at Jordan River Regional Park is underway in an ongoing effort to re-stabilize the slowly-fading bank and local campsite and surf beach, also known as The Point. Crews are expected to finish on Wednesday, Feb. 4,

said Mike Hicks, Juan de Fuca Regional Director. Referring to CRD Regional Parks and Queesto. As construction crews and heavy equipment are active in the area, the CRD advises that all park visitors use caution when travelling in and out of the surfer beach parking lot.

Queesto, a First Nationsowned logging company currently active in the region, reportedly hauled 20 truckloads of ballast and crushed rock to help backfill the damaged bank to its original state. “This is one of the rarest examples of the government and private sector working together for a good cause,”

2015. According to the Capital Regional District (CRD) the popular campsite and surfing beach has been affected by recent super tides and storm surges, which have eroded away at the soil. The severe erosion almost took down two of the older trees right at the very edge of the bank. Fortunately

The water issue is...

Writers over 50

A little clarification was needed in the story on Kemp Lake water, it should have said... For years the residents getting their drinking water from Kemp Lake have not met Island Health’s water treatment standards. They were given a couple of options, one of them included building a new water treatment plant and the other extending the water main along West Coast Road at Erinan. We did not mean to imply the water was not drinkable.

February 1 marked the official start of The 2015 Cedric Literary Awards, with a formal Call for Submissions from previously unpublished British Columbian authors and First Nations storytellers, age 50 or better. The Cedric Literary Awards is a first-of-itskind literary awards program in Canada, created specifically to recognize unpublished BC writers of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and First Nations storytelling. The Awards’ founder, Dr. Peter Dale, says: “As the creator of The Cedric Literary Awards, I encourage all unpublished BC writers in the 50-plus demographic to dust off manuscripts that may have been languishing on bookshelves for far too long. The time has finally come to showcase those literary gems.� Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts starting February 1, and the deadline for receipt of submissions is May 1, 2015. Once all of the submissions are in, they will be forwarded to an independent selection panel made up of members who are recognized in BC and beyond in the fields of writing and publishing.

The Horseshoe Pitching Association was somewhat relieved to hear it may be getting a space for itself eight pitches worth - in Sooke River Park, but when exactly that will be is yet to be seen. At least, that’s how Ron Dumont, team captain for Belmont Collision, feels about it. “Soon as we sign that lease, we can go ahead and start the process,” he said, but noted that getting people interested in a sport without a solid place to play so far has been difficult. “It’s been five years since we began putting this together… it was hard to keep people interested when they were switching us back and forth from Sooke River Road to John Phillips Park and back to Sooke River.” The eight-memberstrong club - which extends its network of participants towards every corner of the island - is to receive a two-year lease, along with a two-year exten-

sion. That, in total, would give the Association four years of playtime as long as the current council remain in place. Given the club’s previous brushes with city council on the matter however, Dumont is cautiously optimistic. “Years ago we got all the green lights and donations to help with the clearing for a place of our own, then all of a sudden the new council came in and nicked the whole thing,” he said, adding that it took a lot of work just to be heard. “We kept pestering them so they were going to put us in the John Phillips Memorial Park, then the council changed and so did our location again.” Still, things are looking up for the up-andcoming Sooke Horseshoe Pitching Association. “If we get the pits and things and people start using them, then it’ll be hard to change the policy and toss us around again,” Dumont said.

Tankers and cargo ships ply the waters in the strait of Juan de fuca. fire protection in the Silver Spray Local Service Area. The fee will be equal to 1.1945 per $1,000 assessed value. The CRD is proposing an increase in the rate, which brings the price that Silver Spray residents pay up to the level that other East Sooke residents pay. Over time the annual fee has increased from $6,000 in 2006 to $32,550 in 2014. All the fees are paid only by the property owners within the Silver Spray lands. In 2011 a survey was sent to the residents at Silver Spray asking them to evaluate three different options for fire protection. While there was an even split to keep the East Sooke contract in place or to construct a Silver Spray fire hall, there was no interest from any of the respondents to become a volunteer firefighter. Director Finance Michael Dillabaugh stated that after this year they will negotiate a new agreement.

• Council voted in favour of a recommendation to submit a resolution to the Association of Vancouver Island and Coast Communities. The resolution would reassert Sooke’s opposition to any expansion of oil tanker traffic through Coastal B.C. Waters. During the November election, voters were in favour of the question, “Should the District or Sooke join other municipalities in renewing and restating its opposition to the expansion of oil tanker traffic through Coastal BC waters? YES or NO.” Council voted in favour, with the exception of Councillor Kerrie Reay who was opposed. Council will send the resolution to AVICC along with the official vote tally on the non-binding question. Reay made a statement before the vote saying she didn’t think both sides were listened to, meaning Kinder Morgan as well as the group who brought the question forward. Reay said her reluctance was

the fact that it was onesided and there was no debate. She said only 27 per cent of registered voters voted on the questions and asked if this really represented the people of Sooke. “Sixty per cent of them didn’t vote,” she said. Mayor Maja Tait said she is in contact with Kinder Morgan and will be attempting to set up a meeting to hear their side of the issue. • The district is applying to the New Building Canada Fund for funding for the Grant Road Connector Project (Phillips to Charters Road portion). The district will fund the municipal share, eligible project costs and ineligible costs through Development Cost Charges and capital reserves or taxes. Councillor Bev Berger stated that she would hate to see the district get this grant and then raise taxes by 15 per cent to cover the municipal portion. She asked about the money in the district’s reserve

funds. Director Finance Michael Dillabaugh said the project is in the five year financial plan and there wouldn’t be any additional cost apart from what’s in the five year plan. The grant is based on one-third federal share of eligible coast and then provincial funding matched to the federal funding. The district is responsible for one-third of the project costs. Once the grant is received staff will proceed with the project design, tendering and construction. • There were several promotions within the fire department: • Chaplain Gordon Kouwenberg, promoted to Assistant Chief in charge of Support Services • Lieutenant Dan Poirier promoted to Captain of Station 2 • Lieutenant Vince Schutt promoted to Captain of Station 1 • Firefighter Cam Norris-Jones promoted to Lieutenant • Firefighter John Hester promoted to Lieutenant • Nick Gottfried promoted to Senior Firefighter. In 2014 the fire department responded to 15 structure fires, 26 brush fires and 16 other fires. They were first responders at 73 motor vehicle incidents, eight rescues, and 33 hazardous conditions. They assisted the public 19 times, responded to 43 alarms bells and 102 burning complaints. First response calls totaled 380 during the year. This Januaray is the busiest January they have ever had.

• At the regular District of Sooke council meeting, council recommended directing staff to proceed with the request to change the name of Cooper Cove to Cooper’s Cove. Cooper’s Cove is the common usage for the area in Sooke. The request for the name change needs to go to the Geographhic Board of Canada to officially change the name. In her submission to council, Sooke historian Elida Peers outlined the history of the name. “Like most geographical features around Sooke Harbour, the cove at the northeast end of the Sooke basin was named for a crew members of HMS Herald when Captain Henry Kellett surveyed the waters in 1846. Cooper was a crew members, hence the name. So correctly, the little cove is spelled Cooper. The Historical Society long ago established a policy that we should respect the names of the pioneers, explorers, etc., by correct spelling, even if agencies such as MOT labeled them wrongly.” After making the recommendation, Councillor Rick Kasper asked if the right-of-way owned by the District of Sooke could be named as a park. • Council approved a one year extension to the Fire Protection and Suppression Service and Emergency Response Agreement between the District of Sooke and the CRD for

Queesto of the Pacheedaht

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - SOOKE NEWS MIRROR WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2015 - SOOKE NEWS MIRROR

www.sookenewsmirror.com

“Children of the Seafoam” is how hereditary Chief Queesto (Charles Jones in the language of the newcomers) referred to his people who lived along the mouth of the river we call the San Juan today. In early summer the salmonberries ripening along the banks of the San Juan heralded the birthday of one of Canada’s finest Native sons. Queesto was born into a family with great pride in its ancestry and rituals, in a time which saw the customs and commerce of the incoming Europeans begin to change their lives forever. In 1900, his father was chief, and it was in that year that Charles Jones went out sealing in the Bering Sea with the rest of the sealing fleet from Victoria. Father and son were aboard the schooner Sausalas, as was Andrew Lazzar of the T’Sou-kes, brotherin-law to Charles Jones. Small boats took off from the mother ship; his father was the hunter, while Charles was steersman in the stern. For the two month season of hunting seals, Queesto recalled when he spoke with us in the 1970s, only spears were used, as rifles were prohibited. He recalled that his father and other hunters would hunt seals by canoe in the strait off Cape Flattery as well. Heading off to the Hudson’s Bay Company in Victoria with their catch in 40-foot canoes, they traded the pelts for blankets and other goods. While records weren’t available to confirm his birth, the family believed Charles Jones came into the world in 1876. So wellversed in the traditions of the Pacheedaht, so AGENDA CAPITAL REGIONAL DISTRICT SOOKE & ELECTORAL AREA PARKS AND RECREATION COMMISSION

eloquent in his conversations, in time Charles Jones became a soughtafter figure far and wide in the immigrant world that strove to record the earlier life of his people. While his family traditions were foremost, he moved forward easily into the new century, owning a seine boat, and was so ver-

satile that he became well-paid in the logging industry as well. He worked as a brakeman on a logging railway at Jordan River in 1908, and later as a boom man for Milligans in Shirley. This photo shows Queesto, Hereditary Chief Charles Jones, in 1982 at the Cultural Hall on T’Sou-ke Reserve

No. 1 where he was celebrating his 106th birthday. Though wheelchair bound, he beat the drum while his wife Ida (in white dress) and his son Chuck Jones kept time, as his legion of relatives and friends joined in paying tribute to this legendary figure. In 1990, when family accounts showed him to be in his 114th year,

EDITORIAL CARTOON

Squeaky wheels do get the grease A new year, a new council and a new outlook. While it appears that District of Sooke council is less volatile and confrontational, there still remains at least one councillor who is out of sync with the rest on some issues. In a soft-spoken way Councillor Kerrie Reay stated her opposition to the opposition of increased tanker traffic along B.C. coastal waters. She said she wanted to hear both sides before voting on a resolution to be submitted to an association of coastal communities. Her comments and opposition sounds like a federal Conservative stance rather than a local one and one has to wonder why. Of course being reasonable and informed is the intent of every councillor, but when the voters gave the thumbs up to a non-binding question, it should be clear that is what the electorate wants, no matter how small the voter turn-out. The resolution itself is merely a statement but it does show the power of persistence and good marketing from the group who brought it forward. They spent a lot of money on that campaign and what they showed people is that they have power and a voice and obviously backers with money. They will be paying attention to the actions of council, you can be sure of that, and they will be calling them out if things happen they don’t like. They may be a silent “council” just like the one that used to meet regularly at a fast food outlet. There is probably no one, whatever their political stripe, who wants to see more tanker traffic in the strait. It’s a given but this issue flexed the muscles of the organizing group and they firmly established themselves as a force to be reckoned with. Council needs to make their own decisions without being overly influenced by any one, any group or party. Council should represent all of Sooke, not just the ones with the squeaky wheel.

FEATURE LETTER

Pink cart program explained by SDL I, Mike Winter, from Sooke Disposal Ltd.,  (SDL) would like to take this opportunity to explain the Pink Cart Program.     My brother and I back in September,  became aware that the CRD was going to ban food waste from the Hartland landfill effective January 1, 2015, and it was actually going to happen this time around, as they were trying to enforce the kitchen scraps program in the last year or two.   Ken and I went in to lengthy debates how we were going to go about this new program.   We understood right from the beginning this was going to be a difficult transition for the public and us as a company. First off; how would we educate the public?  What size of container? What type of truck would we use?  What color would we use and public to identify visually where to put kitchen scraps? How would the CRD enforce contaminants in the kitchen waste?  What the cost is going to be?  After all of these discussions  we came up with the pink cart 32-gallon tote made by Cascade industries. Why? This is how it went. First off, I am naturally a realistic humanitarian and for 30 years  I have conducted business with the most simplest philosophy. Which is, if it doesn’t come from the heart, it doesn’t matter what the mind thinks. Back to the pink cart: The 32 gallon size was decided because of an understanding that grass/leaves

would be accepted with kitchen waste. Unfortunately, that is not the case at this time. Another determining factor of size was maybe the public would want to share with their neighbours, family, friends, etc.  The 32-gallon toters are the smallest toters used on a truck lift, meaning, kitchen scraps can become quite heavy. They are easy to wheel to the curb, as well as being easier for our employees to use the truck lift. The collection truck would be one already in our fleet so we could use it for multi- tasking.  The colour of the tote went back and forth. Ken’s idea was to symbolize something unique, not being done by everyone.  We talked about the pink cart   five years ago, as cancer has been touched by everyone, in some type of way.  But we did wonder if the public would accept the pink color.  The cost of disposal of kitchen waste is $110/metric tonne at the Hartland landfill.  There will be a surcharge of 40 per cent if contaminants are mixed with food waste. These fines will be charged to the company.  What would be our cost? After hashing out numbers based on weight and volume, we arrived at $7.95 per tote/per month. This cost was implied before donating to any charities.  So rather then feeling forced to donate, by signing up you are helping these charities.  In other words, it would have been $7.95/month regardless.  This price includes the use of the lift toter at no extra charge. Being  natural humanitarians,  we

decided we want to support charities and advertise the well-being of human kind. We quickly agreed. Which ones? So many good charities out there. Our conclusion was since the pink cart supports the Canadian Cancer Society, we wanted to support this charity.  The second charity was the local food bank because of the nature of program.  It’s a fact that everyone needs a helping hand sometimes. Next came the hot stamping of the cart. Are you sure that Sooke Disposal should have a hot stamp  stating portion of proceeds to local food bank/CCS on each pink cart? Yes!  It is the people that will make this program,  not us. We just came up with the concept. We put a lot of thought into this, we did not come up with these ideas and figures over night. SDL, a local family business has always been a community player and has supported many charities and organizations through the last three decades. That is what makes us a community. Our customers have the right to participate if they desire. After all, it is a user pay system. In closing I am extremely proud of the people of Sooke. I am proud to be a Sookite. Proud to be doing our part in protecting the environment. SDL has the best customers in the world. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.  Together we can! We appreciate any feed back: grinder5mw@gmail.com Mike Winter Sooke

We asked: What business would you like to see in Sooke sometime soon?

A KFC!

I would probably look at a business the town really needs, like a lumber store or a Home Depot or something.

It would be nice to see a wool shop, maybe contained with something else to make it viable.

Dump solution After being told I have to pay more to have exactly the same crap hauled away because the CRD has decided garbage is unfit for the garbage dump, I turned to the website for the CRD “Regional Kitchen Scraps Policy” to see if I could glean any insight into the latest round of stupidity that should itself have been put into the dump. My takeaway was this “Eat those leftovers! Leftovers don’t have to be boring.” Evidently the 12-year-old townie the CRD has retained as a patronizing content writer is familiar with the 5 a.m. excitement of walking into a bear that has just shredded the plastic container provided for my neighbour’s smelly seafood castoffs. However, he/she may be on to something. I don’t see why the extra step of taking a dump can’t be eliminated and the material run through an industrial garburator and pumped out to sea, where it would end up anyhow (at least in the CRD). It would be a more sanitary alternative to eating it first. Terrance Martin Sooke

They bring people to the island, and keep them here. The six million annual visits to CRD parks and trails attest to their value. While it is stated that “from East Sooke to Port Renfrew each person averages two and a half acres of park land,” a look at the CRD Regional Parks Strategic Plan 2012-2021 shows that the great majority of those  parks lay between Sooke, Langford and Metchosin. Residents of Sooke have to drive to reach them. Residents of Langford can hop on the trolley or step out the door to reach a park. For the drawing power of wilderness, parks and trails to apply equally to Sooke more

Sonic booms and rumbles

Activist Helene Harrison seems confused about the noise she calls “sonic booms”, and its source, in your January 14, 2015 issue. A sonic boom is a short pressure wave off of an aircraft travelling faster than the speed of sound. It is very unlikely that anyone is flying that fast past Sooke, as military people try to avoid that near populations and it is fuel inefficient. Has she considered the noise may be blasting for construction?

The “rumbles” that some people well to the east of her report hearing are probably aircraft training on Whidbey Island, likely using afterburner for takeoff and go-around. It is more than a short sound due to takeoff time and more than one aircraft using the runway in sequence. I doubt very much that she hears that noise at her distant location very often. Has she tried to correlate what she hears with when the US Navy is training? I gather they will say when they did, otherwise the newspaper serving Port Townsend probably knows. And – sigh – Harrison failed to grasp my explanation a few weeks ago of what the “electromagnetic” training behind Forks and down the outer

coast is – radar trucks hiding in the forest to be detected by aircraft. Calling the training “war games” is a bit much, that’s done over deserts to have clear airspace and few people hearing the noise. Instead she points to an author who fails to grasp that radio waves are not nuclear radiation, doesn’t understand that strength declines rapidly with distance, fails to recognize that moving training to the Olympic peninsula reduces the carbon dioxide emissions he is so concerned about, mis-represents US Navy statements, and uses misleading headlines. I challenge Harrison to tell us the difference between those test devices and radars that are at airports for flight control and elsewhere for shipping control and weather mapping. The US Navy is of course a partner with Canada in defending our peaceful and prosperous way of life. I support that. Keith Sketchley  Saanich

Tea & Symphony coming up “I don’t know which was better, the music or the food.” This was overheard by Susan Nyikes after last year’s Tea & Symphony. This year, the event promises to be as good if not better. At 2:30 on the afternoon of Sunday, February 15, at the Sooke Community Hall, Norman Nelson, the Sooke Philharmonic Chamber Players, Little Vienna Bakery and Christine Hopkins will be combining their skills to bring you a traditional English Tea – make that traditional - deluxe. Guests will be served melt-in-the-mouth treats, delicious coffee and creatively mixed teas, while treating their ears to the sweet sounds of the Sooke Philharmonic’s fine musicians, joined by soprano Eve-Lyn de la Haye. Soprano Eve-Lyn de la Haye  was hailed as ‘thrilling, a high point of the opera’ in Verdi’s Falstaff for Calgary Opera and her performance as Nannetta places her in the front ranks of the lyric coloraturas of her generation. Accomplished across a wide range of musical genres, her upcoming schedule includes a recital of Music and Poetry from WWI at the Victoria Conservatory of Music, guest solo-

Quartet in Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro. Last but not least you’ll enjoy a composition by violinist-par-excellence Adrian Dolan, entitled Old Shoes, New Shoes. Little Vienna Bakery’s Nyikes is still pondering the details of her menu, but she promises it will begin with a scone, move to tiny tea sandwiches, and of course finish with an assortment of small, sweet delicacies. The coffee will be by Caffè Umbria; tea by Honestly Tea, locally mixed by Christine Hopkins. Tickets are $30 and can be ordered online or purchased at the usual outlets.

Nation be dammed in awareness movie On February 11th Awareness Film Night and the Sierra Club of B.C. will screen the film DamNation. This recently-released movie documents the change in the U.S. national attitude towards the damming of rivers from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that the future is bound to the life and health of the rivers. Dams are coming down in the U.S. and rivers and their ecosystems are being restored to their natural states. Not so in B.C. where the government has just approved construction of a new dam, the Site C dam on the Peace River, which will flood over 100 kms of prime farmland, sever the Yellowstone to Yukon wildlife corridor and flood First Nations Heritage Sites. DamNation shows how far things have moved in the U.S. from the assumption 50 years ago that dams were always a power for the good. Diverse interests in that country are coming together to remove obsolete dams and find more cost-

Travis Rummel photo

Ben Knight films the former Elwha Dam before its removal in a scene from DamNation. effective options to meet power, shipping, irrigation and other needs, while helping to restore rivers, preserve tribal customs, recover fish stocks, revitalize waterfronts, improve recreational opportunities and render watersheds more resilient to climate change. Some call it a movement, others call it a generational shift in values. DamNation documents both - and the undeniable momentum behind river restoration that has begun to take hold in the U.S. In B.C. things seem to be moving in the opposite direction. After years of avoiding

construction of another dam on the Peace River precisely because it would destroy all the things that our neighbours to the south are trying to recover from their dammed rivers, the provincial government has decided that building a dam and flooding the Peace Valley is now a “go”. This despite the fact that the Joint Review Panel’s report released in May found that BC Hydro had failed to prove a need for the extra power, had not given due consideration to alternatives such as geothermal and energy conservation and that the damming of the

Peace River would have significant adverse effects on wildlife and on First Nations. The post screening talk and discussion will be lead by Ana Simeon, Peace Valley campaigner with the Sierra Club. The evening will offer a chance to learn of the true costs of Site C as well as the positive alternatives, both economically and environmentally, to damming.   Showtime is at 7 p.m. at the EMCS theatre.   Admission is by donation. Note: this film will not be in the Awareness Film Night library after the screening, as it must be returned to the filmmaker.

Wednesday, WEDNESDAY, February FEBRUARY 4, 4, 2015 2015 -- SOOKE SOOKE NEWS NEWS MIRROR MIRROR

The Pastor's Pen

The day was warm and sundrenched. The walk to the well was quite pleasant save the nagging thoughts that stole into her mind. Her latest male interest was showing signs of tiring of her and she knew she would have to step up her game or face eviction.....again. For many a moon she had relied on her charms to bring her good fortune and a roof over her head, but today those confidence-busting thoughts were causing those familiar feelings of insecurity to settle like a bad lasagna in the pit of her stomach. She would just have to try harder. Preoccupied as she was with her own thoughts, she didn’t even notice the man sitting leaning up against the old cedar tree near the well. She was just about to tie the well rope to her bucket when a voice from the unnoticed man broke into her consciousness. “Could I have a drink?” She was startled and, after a quick visual assessment, shot back with a terse statement of fact that stated the obvious. “You don’t have a bucket and the well is deep.” Not the most hospitable or kind answer. Nor did it answer the man’s question. It might have sounded a bit rude, almost biting. “Get your own water, Bub!” Maybe it was because she had recognized him as one of the hated cousins, the ones who hated her and her people. After all she didn’t know him from Adam and wasn’t inclined to help a hated cousin. The man’s answer to her prejudice was intriguing. What was the living water that he referred to? And why was she supposed to know who he was? Maybe he was some kind of prophet....what did he know about her? Her curious nature led her to assert relational connection to the patriarch Jacob who had dug the well they were talking next to and used it for his family needs and the needs of his flocks and herds. “Are you greater than our father Jacob?” In that moment of alignment she showed her true colours. The patriarch, Jacob, lived a life of trying to be good enough to atone for his bad deeds. Tricked by his Uncle Leban, Jacob ended up marrying both his cousins when he really only loved the younger one, Rachel. Retribution, he thought, for the trickery he and his mother had perpetrated on his father in their plan to ensure that he received the Birthright blessing just as the angel had told his mother and father at the time that his mother had been pregnant with him and his twin brother, Esau. The woman at the well claimed to be Jacob’s descendant. Maybe not the best association to choose. Dependence on yourself to get through had not really worked out so well for her. So imagine her surprize when this mystery man tells her all about her five previous husbands and tells her the guy she’s living with hasn’t popped the question yet for some reason. This man seems to know the deepest need of her soul. Now he’s offering her water, Living Water. Water that will quench this hunger of soul that has plagued her from day one. In essence, he, Jesus of Nazareth, claims in this interview to be the One who was to come. The promised One who would do for all accepting humans what they cannot ever do for themselves....save themselves from failure and chaos. Yes, He is greater than our father, Jacob, and He offers us new life. He offers a life filled with living water (Him) that will overflow onto those around us. In essence, He want to make us into wells....wells of Living Water. John 4 records the next action of this woman at the well. She leaves her water bucket and charges off back to the village to let everyone know that she has found the one. She becomes a well herself and overflows the Living Water onto the good folk of her village. This results in the whole village coming out to see Jesus and pressing Him to stay for several days. We too, will not be able to contain ourselves when we sample the Living Water. Everyone will need to hear our story.

Ancient fires hold clues for future conditions Travis Paterson Black Press

In the wilderness of a remote South Island lake, Kendrick Brown leans over the boat’s edge and drives a hollow tube into the soft lakebed sediment below. What he pulls out, one metre at a time, is a historical timeline embedded in layers of organic and nonorganic matter. It tells him about the past, and helps paint a picture of what’s to come. “They’re nature’s archives: stratigraphic sequences in the mud that read like pages in a book,” says Brown, a research scientist with the Canadian Forest Service.  “Basically, the same mud that you sink your toes into during a summer swim is the cover of the book, a recording of history of the region based on the matter that has settled into the lake floor.” Brown’s project team is based out of the Pacific Forestry Centre in Saanich and includes

Dr. Kendrick Brown of the Pacific Fiorestry Centre points to a 2 cm layer of 7,700-year-old volcanic ash from Orgeon’s Mt. Mazama, found in a core sample from nearby Begbie Lake. research technician Nicholas Conder, Nicholas Hebda, and University of Victoria co-op student Kiera Smith. While the focus is on the past, the results can help inform about the

future. The team’s current focus is on sediment cores collected from the Greater Victoria Water Supply Area, namely from Begbie Lake and the Sooke

Lake Reservoir. Brown is examining records from these lakes because paleoclimate indicators suggest the past time interval known as the early Holocene (11,700-7,000 years ago) was warmer and drier compared to present-day.  Scientists hope the data may serve as a first-order reference to what future conditions may be like if induced by climate change. There are models suggesting temperatures in southern B.C. may increase 2-3 degrees C by 2100, he said.  Extracting pollen and charcoal fragments from the lake sediment cores allows the team to assess how vegetation and

fire disturbance have changed through time in response to “various forcing mechanisms,” Brown said. “We now have a sense of how the fire regime has changed in the Sooke Lake Reservoir catchment throughout the Holocene (period) and will be informing the CRD about the natural variability of fire events within the water supply catchment,” he said. “We’re now working to understand how vegetation in the catchment has changed through time, the signal of which is contained in abundant fossil pollen grains in the sediment.” The forestry scientists have teamed up with the CRD because the regional body need to know about fire risk

to water supply, Brown said. “We’re using nature’s archives to learn how the land responded to past changes in climate and identifying past periods that might be analogues for the future,” he said. Are future generations of the South Islanders destined to live in a fire-prone region? Not quite, but

fire disturbance may increase in the future. “We need to plan for and protect against this risk. While fire is not a common form of disturbance today, it was more prevalent in the past,” Brown said.  That plan is still a few years off. The team is hoping to produce an initial report of findings by the end of 2016.

One New Year’s resolution we’ll all be making. A full disposal ban on kitchen scraps at Hartland landfill takes effect January 1, 2015. The ban will divert compostable items like vegetables, meat, bones, grains, dairy products, fruit and soiled paper that currently take up thirty percent of the landfill. At the same time, diverted kitchen scraps will significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and will be processed into beneficial compost. So contact your waste hauler or municipality directly, plan for collection options and make a note on your calendar. Then we can all look forward to a happy, more sustainable New Year!

Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia

Dr. David Smith

Dr. David Snith

When it is more than anxiety and depression Dr. David Smith

Special to the Sooke News Mirror

Last week we talked about the stresses teenagers face as they transition to adulthood. Adding to that challenging journey, which all teens must make, is the fact that 75 per cent of all mental health conditions show up in the teen and early adult years. Today we talk about bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, which tend to first show their signs and symptoms between the ages of 13 and 25. As noted last week, and in all the columns to date: If you are worried that your child or teen may be showing signs of a mental illness, talk to your family doctor, or contact the Child and Youth Mental Health program provided by the Ministry of Children and Family

Development in your region. Call Service BC at 1-800-661-8773 for the MCFD office nearest to you. Bipolar: Originally called manic-depression, bipolar disorder is marked by extreme shifts in mood, energy and activity levels, ranging from severe depression on one side to mania on the other. During a manic episode, the youth will be highly talkative, energetic, full of ideas and enthusiasms, may take risks or behave impulsively, and may even become jittery, sleepless and irritable. During a depressive episode, the youth is very tired or feels slowed down, is very sad and hopeless, has a hard time concentrating or making decisions, and may also be restless or irritable. Different types of bipolar disorder have different extremes in moods and different speeds of cycling between them, but most high or low episodes last several days or longer. Sometimes the extremes in moods can bring on psychosis — losing touch with reality and having hallucinations (hearing, seeing, smelling, tasting, or feeling things that are not actually there) and delusions (a strong, illogical belief, such as feeling one’s actions

are being controlled by others.) Early psychosis intervention, called EPI, is very successful. An EPI program exists in many communities in each health authority in B.C., see earlypsychosis.ca. Bipolar disorder is known to run in families, but most individuals who have a family member with the disorder will never develop this condition — some other trigger is often needed and research is not yet clear what that is. Many famous and highly successful individuals have bipolar disorder, in part because the manic phase can produce extreme creativity and productivity. Yet the disorder can cause havoc with family relationships, jobs and finances. Substance use, particularly excessive alcohol consumption, is common with the disorder, especially during a manic phase. Significant mood changes can be stabilized with various medications, or their combinations, plus different types of psychotherapy. With longterm treatment productive lives can be lived. Attention to good sleep, healthy diet and exercise, regular routines, and avoidance of mindaltering substances, along with medication and therapy, can mini-

mize the number of mood episodes. For more information see Mood Disorders Association of BC, mdabc.net; and heretohelp.bc.ca; Schizophrenia: Perhaps no mental health diagnosis causes parents and youth more fear than schizophrenia, which is marked by losing touch with reality and experiencing hallucination, delusions, disorganization and cognitive impairment, such as poor judgement and decision-making. But the outlook need not be bleak: treatment works, and recovery and a return to good functioning occurs regularly. About one per cent of all British Columbians have this illness and it affects men and women equally, but first symptoms often appear for men between ages 16 and 20, and women between ages 20 and 30. While schizophrenia also runs in families, it usually needs more than just genetics to arise, although exactly what else triggers it is not fully known. Sometimes it occurs in individuals with no family history, perhaps as a result of a subtle or past brain injury. In the last decade, new antipsychotic

medication and the introduction of Early Psychosis Intervention (EPI) programs, noted above, are greatly helping newly diagnosed people with schizophrenia. Like bipolar disorder, along with the right combination of medication, good sleep, healthy diets, regular exercise, established routines and avoiding mind-altering substances will help those with the diagnosis live full and productive lives. In fact, dynamic and well-spoken individuals like B.C.’s Brent Seal, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia while a university student and now runs a company called “Seal Wellness” are helping change the face of schizophrenia. Seal, a mountain climber, ultra-marathoner, wellness coach and inspirational speaker, as well as others who are thriving after a schizophrenia diagnosis, show that good, meaningful lives are possible with the right treatment.

Sooke Minor Hockey coaches face off on the ice at the SEAPARC on Saturday, Jan. 31.

Coaches swing puck for good cause

Octavian Lacatusu photo

Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

Running into its fourth year, the Gord Sleivert Memorial Coaches Game kicked off at the SEAPARC Arena last Saturday, raising nearly $3,000 for a Sooke family in need. This year’s recipients will be the MacDonell family- notably, long-time Sooke Minor Hockey player, Quintin MacDonell, 18, who was recently diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer behind his eye. For Sooke Minor Hockey Association

(SMHA) president Darren Fogarty, as well as the rest of the Sooke community, this hits home pretty hard. “Quintin’s such a great kid… Vancouver Island presented him with a scholarship so he can continue his schooling and now so here he is having to suddenly stop,” Fogarty said. “It’s very sad.” Before being diagnosed with the condition, MacDonell was initially going to school in Regina and suffering from sinus infections. MacDonell, who’s played hockey in Sooke since the age of seven, is currently in Van-

couver with his family undergoing treatment - however the SMHA says the medical bills are quickly adding up. Saturday night’s event got off to a good start though; before the game even began, a local family came in and donated $1,000 on the spot. “We have such a great community here and everybody always pulls together for a good cause,” Fogarty said. “It puts everything into perspective.” Over the last 30 years, hockey coaches in town have come together to raise

Maekawas return to the ice

Local skaters Pilar and Leonardo Maekawa have been busy polishing their ice skating skills over the last little while, coming back more focused than ever

before. This season the iconic duo have competed internationally in two different ice skating competitions; at the US Open in Salt Lake

City, Utah, where they came 5th , and at the Finlandia Trophy in Finland where they came 9th. During last year’s three-part Autumn Clas-

money for a family in need in Sooke. After Gord Sleivert, a local hockey coach and legend, passed away three years ago, the event was re-named in his honour. Each of the coaches pay $20, everybody else who comes in is by donation - every dollar then goes to the family in question, or several, depending on the situation. Those who wish donate to MacDonell’s cause can still drop off a cheque at the SEAPARC addressed to the Sooke Minor Hockey Association on behalf of the MacDonell family.

sic International competition (called the Challenger Series) in Barrie, Ontario, Pilar and Leonardo ended 23rd place out of 60.

Sooke girls U13 played in Sooke last weekend against their biggest competition - Salt Spring Island. The girls all battled hard, a real nail-biter for the parents on the sidelines. The game ended in a 3-3 tie. Sooke goals were scored by Brittney Homer, assisted by Marin Clarkston, Marin Clarkston assisted by Allana Garat and Alexa Wright. Manager Carleen Dennett, Coach Jay Wright U14 girls kicked it up against JDF at Gaudy turf on Saturday.  A solid shot by Layla Martinez late in the first half went over the JDF GK to find the back of the net and gave Sooke a 1-0 lead.  First play off the kickoff to start the second-half saw Emma Chalmers flying down the left wing, deke through their defense and tap in a sweet shot to put Sooke up 2-0.  JDF retaliated with many shots that Sooke’s GK Ella Dennett brilliantly saved – never seen so many dive saves back to back!  JDF finally shot one up and over to make it 2-1.  With only minutes left in the game, JDF tied it up and stole what would have been a very deserving win for Sooke.  Excellent passing between our midfield and strikers and great defense made this one of the most exciting games of the season.  Way to go Wildcats! Coaches Laura Lockhart, David Peters  Max Hadrich’s goal late in the second half gave the U14 Boys a 2-2 draw with Cowichan on Satur-

Coaches Jen Petrie and Bruce Milton Saturday our Sooke Shredders  (Silver U16 boys) played in the Semi Final LISA Cup game against SaltSpring U16 boys. This game was action-packed and had a nail biting finish. Sooke scored 2 goals in regulation time goals by Matthew Miller and Taylor Cummings assists From Chris Berkeley and Hagen Harold. SaltSpring also scored 2 goals in regulation time. When we went straight to penalty kicks, I believe this was a first for our Sooke boys. First five players to shoot were Hagen, Matthew, Tie, Chris, and Justin at the end of 5 we were tied still 4 out 5 in so up comes player 6 Taylor and in it went. Sooke Boys prevail! Way to go boys! Coach Michelle   Div 2 Men’s team has pulled up their socks late in the season to achieve two wins in their last two games. Last weekend they beat Gordon Head  1-0 with a sweet shot by Doug Armstrong late in the second half.  This past weekend the boys beat Saanich 2-1 which means they will remain in Div 2 next season. Saanich scored in the 25th minute to give a 1-0 lead.  Two minutes later Sooke retaliated on a through ball from Doug Armstrong to Mike McKay to tie it up.  In the 45th minute Doug Armstrong was

Yan and Cao from Shanghai, China catch their first salmon in Sooke January 20, 2015 aboard 2 Reel 2. The winter salmon fishing in Sooke has been good, although lately there have been fewer reports, probably do to some rainy weather and just the time of year. The “local” salmon derby out of Victoria on January 25. A Sooke boat landed the winning fish, with a nice 16 lb Spring Ocean Dreams. The salmon are deep this time of year and are difficult if not impossible to catch from shore. Those trolling gear from boats with downriggers are definitely most productive in landing these winter Chinooks. Best salmon baits include hootchies,spoons, anchovy and herring trolled in glow, green glow, or chartreuse glow bait heads near the bottom in 120 to 160 ft of water anywhere from Secretary Island to Otter Point and beyond. Halibut fishing opened February 1, 1 per person/day, to a maximum length of 133 cm. Local anglers have been preparing; tying heavy 80 to 100 lb leaders, checking anchor systems, purchasing short stiff strong Hali rods, and tough levelwind reels. These Halibut combinations are usually finished off with

very thin strong 80 to 100 lb braided lines. Tip: if you are lining your own Halibut reel, it’s a good idea to use hockey or electrical tape on the base or arbour before you attach and wind the braided line onto the reel. The entire 300 yard spool of line can spin on the smooth arbour ruining an expensive line and possibly losing a great fish. For terminal tackle, the spreader bar and leader system tied with a 2 lb weight and double hooks works well with the brisk tides and sandy bottoms found in the Sooke area. Best hali baits include a rolling herring, octopus, squid and salmon bellies. When the tide slows down many anglers report that jigging large spinnow or chrome cod jigs sweetened with bait will bring on more strikes. The Sooke Halibut Derby, the first derby in the new Sooke Saltwater Series, will take place on the 23/24th of May. Crabbing continues to be slow in the Sooke harbour, although some are being caught off the Rotary public pier using chicken or fresh salmon heads, tails and trimmings.
