STUDENTS FACE YEAR OF CHANGE

Programs emphasizing ‘hands on’ learning just a number of changes coming to class Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

As public school begins this week, parents and students alike are scrambling to get everything ready for a new academic year. Only, this year things are going to be different as the Sooke School District embarks on several new programs emphasizing “hands on” learning. The new school year in B.C. is the start of a three-year transition to a new curriculum that allows more flexibility and individual learning. The basic skills of reading, writing and arithmetic will remain, but students will also be taught life skills, communication, collaboration and critical thinking.

Two areas of emphasis for the new curriculum are environmental education and an aboriginal perspective. Local schools are encouraged to work with aboriginal communities across the province to represent the full diversity of aboriginal experience. Next up is widening the updated grade configuration across all schools, which is kindergarten to Grade 5 in elementary, grades 6 to 8 in middle school and grades 9 to 12 in secondary school. The idea is to allow things such as having students from multiple schools be part of the same sports team or compete in the same league. Octavian Lacatusu/Sooke News Mirror

Kemp Lake water plan shut out of federal grants Water board will likely reapply in new year Kevin Laird Sooke News Mirror

The federal government has rejected a grant application from Kemp Lake Water Distribution to connect to the Capital Regional District waterworks system. KLWD needs to improve its water system to meet the Vancouver Island Health Authority’s drinking water guidelines. The project would see the Kemp Lake water main extended along West Coast to the CRD water system at Erinan Boulevard. “I’m deeply saddened that the government didn’t see this as a worthwhile project and give us the grant,” said Mike Hicks, CRD director for Juan de Fuca and a member of the water commission. “We still have to fix the water system. We either go it alone or

wait for another round of grants.” The project is estimated to cost $1.8 million of which $1.6 million would likely be covered by senior governments. Kevan Brehart, chair of the KLWD board, said the Small Community Grant application met all the criteria, but wasn’t OK’d for funding. Another round of grant applications is expected in the new year, but no date has been set. Kemp Lake Water Distribution has been working with the CRD and VIHA for more than five years on the project with several engineering and water quality studies undertaken. The KLWD looked at several options including building a new water treatment plant and hooking up to the CRD system. Two years ago it was decided to work within the CRD system. “It’s been an ongoing process, and the whole time we’ve been working with VIHA,” Brehart said. The Health Ministry wants to standardize

community drinking water throughout the province. It will meet with the CRD and KLWD officials soon to discuss what the next steps are for the Kemp Lake system. “It’s not a case of the water being deadly, and we have to do something about it tomorrow,” Brehart said. “It’s just a case that our system doesn’t meet the new standards for treatment.” Brehart said if a second intake of grant applications begin early next year, it would likely be another year – if the grant is successful – before work could begin on the project. klaird@blackpress.ca

Excitement grows for Sooke Fall Fair Longtime supporter of annual fair ‘can’t wait’ for this weekend’s event Kevin Laird Sooke News Mirror

“My key to success in the fair is to start early, not a week before the event.” – Amy Chwojka

Amy Chwojka can’t wait for the Sooke Fall Fair. Chwojka hasn’t missed a fall fair in more than 50 years, and over the last 12 months she’s been meticulous collecting, growing and baking items for this year’s fair, which is this weekend at Sooke Community Hall. “My key to success in the fair is to start early, not a week before the event,” she says with a chuckle. The last three years Chwojka has won a rosetta at the fall fair for amassing the most points in diabetic baking. Over the years, she won numerous prizes for everything from baking to vegetables and fruit and rug making. But the winning wasn’t always easy, especially in the first few years. Chwojka moved to Sooke in 1964 and a year later was

entering veggies and other goods in the fair. It wasn’t until an elderly neighbour took her under his wing and taught her how to grow vegetables that she started seeing the fruits of her labour. The neighbour even talked her into putting a hooked rug into the fair, and Chwojka won the event. “You need to learn what the judges want and understand what you are placing in front of them,” she says. “If you do that you certainly provide yourself with a tremendous amount of education and understanding.” Over the years, Chwojka has held many positions with the fall fair. This year she is an assistant in the photography section. She was also involved with the commitee that helped put together the fall fair cookbook a few years ago. Now she gets the most enjoyment teaching those entering items in the fair how best to do it and be successful. “I feel the reward is in just working with people. I appreciate it when people say I didn’t know that,” Chwojka says. “I feel kids have so many talents that they can produce all these lovely things. What the children put out at the fair is

magnificent.” Along with Amy, the Chwojka family has been involved with the fair. Her husband and children have entered many items over the year. Chwojka hasn’t only let her talents go to the fall fair. She’s volunteered with other groups in Sooke including Knox Presbyterian Church, salmon enhancement, blood donor clinics and girl guides. Earlier this year she received a award for her long service helping with the church’s annual strawberry tea. Two years ago she got a similar honour from the Sooke Fall Fair. “I’ve dug my roots into Sooke very permanently,” Chwojka says. Sooke Fall Fair president Ellen Lewers calls Chwojka “a real gem.” “Amy is a true supporter with the fair. She’s always there when you need her.” The Sooke Fall Fair is Saturday (Sept. 12) from 1 to 6 p.m. and Sunday (Sept. 13) from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. at Sooke Community Hall and the Royal Canadian Legion. klaird@blackpress.ca

Coming Soon... Coming Soon... Rain doesn’t wash away fire fears Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

After much prayer to the rain gods, Vancouver Island received a good bath of rain in the last two weeks, allowing fire departments to finally lessen their brow and lower fire conditions — but does that mean it’s OK to burn piles of stuff again? Absolutely not. In fact, fire restrictions, which can go in effect as early as April, can remain in effect until late October even if the weather has been soaking wet. In other words, regardless that some local fire departments, such as Sooke, Otter Point and Metchosin, changed their fire status from “extreme” to “low” fire restrictions on open burning (outside of camp fires and incin-

erators) remain in full effect. In addition, provincial fire restrictions differ from those set by municipal fire departments who have their own unique set of bylaws and fire enforcement. So naturally, with bylaws being different for each municipality, there’s been some recent confusion in the public on what it can or can’t burn. As a result, Sooke Fire Chief Steven Sorensen noted that fire trucks were dispatched last week to at least a dozen open burning fire complaints. “You’re still not allowed to burn in September, and always check with your local municipality, because it is different everywhere,” he said. Even between Sooke and Otter Point the bylaws are not the same, said Otter Point Fire Chief Kevan Brehart, who pointed out

This was particularly confusing for contractors working this summer’s extreme periods, as the bylaw prohibits the use of machinery such as excavators and chainsaws in Otter Point, but is otherwise allowed in Sooke. For Otter Point, there is no open burning until Oct. 1, and at that point residents still need permits.

Garrison eyes a more inclusive region Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

File photo

Randall Garrison has represented the Sooke region in Ottawa since 2011.

Vic General to house new pediatric training

As the election campaign heats up, so does the race between the parties for the Sooke-EsquimaltSannich riding. This week’s profile is on the NDP Randall Garrison, who represented the Sooke region since 2011 in Ottawa. Garrison pulls his experience in politics from his 20-year career as a criminal justice and political science instructor at Camosun College. He was also involved in the national human rights election observation campaign a few years ago. He says one of the efforts of his party has been to help put Sooke on the map, notably in regards to the natural splendour that is available here. “An important part of what we want to do is to help build the tourism industry into a sustainable industry, and one that can be quite competitive, thanks to Sooke’s huge potential,” Garrison said.

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN

SEPTEMBER

The provincial government has launched a new pediatrics residency training site on the Island that will see prospective doctors train at Victoria General Hospital and other Capital Region healthcare facilities. The goal for the new training site, part of the University of B.C.’s pediatrics residency training program, is to provide more Canadians with family doctors and other health-care professionals, said B.C. Health Minister Terry Lake. “Families on Vancouver Island will have better access to pediatric residents,” he said in a release. “Bringing doctors in training to more communities in B.C. is part of our commitment to enhance medical education and make sure families have access to health-care services, when and where they are needed.” Evidence has shown a doctor who completes residency training in a community is more likely to remain in that area to practise. VGH is Vancouver Island’s pediatric specialty hospital and, according to the release, treats roughly 90 per cent of the Island’s children. As of now, there are two pediatric residents on the Island. The site is expected to be operating with a full slate of eight by July 2018. Residencies last a minimum of four years, but individuals may do one to two years of sub-specialty training elsewhere.

With sports fishing and recreational fishing already a part of the local economy, Garrison said he introduced a private member’s bill (C-667) to help restore federal environment protection to the Sooke watershed and fish habitat. This is in response to the federal government’s decision to remove this protection from all lakes and streams on Vancouver Island in 2012. “We have to make sure there’s fish there for people to catch,” he said. An avid cyclist, Garrison spends his down time with his dogs, particularly at the Whiffin Spit, one of his favourite dog walking places. If elected, Garrison says he wants to help make the Sooke-EsquimaltSaanich riding a more integrated and inclusive area to be in. “What we’re hearing at the door throughout the riding is that people are very interested in change, and that we’ve got an opportunity in October to make those changes,” he said. “I’m looking forward to the rest of the campaign.”

Schools: District braces for

more growth; adopts programs FROM PAGE 1

“Right now, Grade 9’s would be playing Grade 8’s for the senior team, and that’s not that fair as they’re a size and weight differential,” said superintendent Jim Cambridge. “It’ll be easier to have a sports team at Journey because they’ll be three other schools who have the same grade configuration, whereas up until now, Journey’s been the only school that’s Grade 6 to 8. We’re hoping that this standardization will have a positive impact for lots of our schools.” Besides changes in curriculum, the Sooke school district is growing quickly. Increased growth of French immersion this year at Poirier has maxed out the school in terms of classroom space and available personnel, which is a challenge that will need to be discussed with the community within the next year or so, Cambridge noted. “We already have two portable classrooms at Poirier, so we’re hesitant to add any more to a school like that because any time we add more, we take away playing ground space from students,” he said. Plans are also in the works to eventually replace Sooke Elementary School with a new building, though

Cambridge said the government approves one or two schools every three years or so. There’s available space at Saseenos, though John Muir is at capacity

as well. Journey is filling up quick too, and Edward Milne will require the addition of 200 more seats within the next five to 10 years. Sooke School District

has approximately 9,200 students and serves the communities of Sooke, Port Renfrew, Metchosin, Highlands, Langford and Colwood. news@sookenewsmirror.com

Mounties urge drivers to pay attention to school zone speed Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

The new school year began yesterday, and it’s important to remain vigilant while driving through school zones and playgrounds, particularly during school times, say Sooke Mounties. That means slowing down and keeping a sharp eye on crosswalks and school buses that may drop off or pick up students. As it stands, speed limits in school zones during school hours is 30 km/h, which starts at 8 a.m. and remains in effect until 5 p.m. This also applies to areas that have dual speed limits, such as Throup Road, which rapidly shifts from 50 km/h to 30 km/h when turning towards Journey Middle School and Ecole Poirier. “What we’ll usually do in the morning is at 8 o’clock sharp, we hit the school zones and maintain a visible presence,” said Sooke RCMP Cpl. Joe Holmes. “Pay attention at all times, just because it may or may not be between 8 and 5, there could still be kids associated to the school area.” In addition to increased traffic of school-bound minivans and SUVs, expect a lot more yellow out there, as school buses will be operating in full force taking kids to and from school – this means being mindful and obeying the rules when it comes to school bus stop lights. Holmes said respecting the flashing amber lights

is what helps keep everyone safe stepping in and out of the bus. “Reason why the ambers don’t try and race it is because kids may be attempting to get across the bus as it’s slowing down, or the bus could come to a full stop and still have its ambers on,” he said. “Treat them as cautionary and just start hitting the brakes at that point. Even though they shut off the lights, just be weary that there are kids still around that bus immediately after.” Parents are encouraged to give their kids a few tips on being safe out there, noted Holmes. “Make yourself clearly visible, adhere to the sidewalks, and when at a crosswalk, make sure you have eye contact with the driver and that they see you. Around the bus, make sure you stay visible around the bus driver at all times, and follow instructions in regards to bus safety. Don’t walk on the road where at all possible and stay visible.” Holmes said there will be police enforcement throughout the school year, with an especially “big push” during the first few weeks of school. “We’ll be out and clearly visible and have a little chat with those who don’t follow the rules,” he said. Another reminder, in or out of school times, there is no texting or use of mobile devices while driving. That could considerably take the focus off the road, especially where kids are out in larger numbers around school times. news@sookenewsmirror.com

Our View

Drive responsibly and safe in school zones all need to do our part to keep children and students safe

carpooling with another parent in their neighborhood for school drop off and pick up or allowing their child to walk or cycle to school if possible to help reduce traffic congestion and vehicle carbon emissions. With driving, there is always a temptation to speed just a little and pass those who seem like they are driving too slow. Now is the time to put the brakes on bad driving habits. The kids will be back in school and they may not be paying as much attention as they

Pay attention to those in front of you and back of you and drive defensively. Slow down. We all need to do our part to keep children and students safe. That means expecting busier roads and giving yourself plenty of travel time so you aren’t rushing and can stay focused on the road.

should to vehicles. If you are caught speeding in a school or playground zone you can reach into your wallet to pay a fine of $196 to $483 plus three driver penalty points. The posted speed in school zones is 30 km/h between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on school days. And another reminder: pay attention when you are driving. Distracted driving is more than being on a cellphone, it can be eating, fetching something or just looking away.

Selfie photo encourages unwanted friends to join in

Kevin Laird Readers’ Advocate

This is a bit of a head scratcher, and one you wouldn’t put your heads together to figure out. “Selfie lice” have crawled onto the list of things parents need to worry about as kids head back to school this week. It all started when a doctor in the U.S. blamed selfies for a surge in the cases of head lice among teens. The idea is that teens posing for selfies press their heads together and, in doing so, are sharing their head lice along with the photo — hence the term selfie lice. A louse could crawl from one head to the other faster than kids can say “cheese.” There’s no need to panic, says Dr. Dee Hoyano, medical officer with

Island Health. Hoyano says most lice outbreaks occur in elementary- and daycare-age children, but cautions any age group can get lice. “It’s less common [for teens and adults] in the sense that a lot of the behaviours that allow for transmitting are less common as you get older,” she says. “Teenagers don’t usually get lice because they’re not sharing hats and things like that.” Hoyano says transmitting lice while taking a selfie is technically possible, but since lice cannot fly or jump, they’d have to crawl, and that can take a while, so you’d probably have to be head-to-head with your pal for longer than a few seconds.

But here’s the bad news. Super mutant lice do exist. A recent study showed that some lice have high resistance to pyrethroids, the active ingredient to in many over-the-counter treatments. There are two ways to get rid of the creepy crawlies, Hoyano says, either with chemicals or physical treatment. Both work, she says, but you have to be thorough. Chemical treatments need to be applied correctly and then reapplied in some case to ensure all the adult lice are killed. Manual removal of lice can be more effective and doesn’t cost a whole lot either. But it’s time consuming. You need to purchase a

professional-grade lice comb and get into the habit of routinely checking your child’s hair. That way you be proactive and stay ahead of the game. Hoyano recommends that if you are having problems dealing with a lice infestation, you may want to discuss it with a pharmacist, who could offer different solutions to the problem. If you do that, you don’t need to worry about those, selfies, ipads, hats or scarves. And the itching frenzy will end. ••• Kevin Laird is editor of the Sooke News Mirror.

What would it take to better market Sooke? The News Mirror’s recent article has sparked many ideas to better market Sooke. Should we focus on economic development by recruiting industry, investment, retailers or employers? Do we want to be a destination for conventions; sports, entertainment or cultural events; or movie production? Do we aim to draw more tourists and keep bringing them back? Should we attract more home buyers and real estate investment, new residents or certain types of residents such as retirees, growing families or artists? Do we work to entice existing residents to shop locally, come out to events, and pitch in as volunteers? The answer I’m hearing is: “Yes! All of the above.” There are many marketing activities going on. The Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce promotes local shopping; fire departments are actively recruiting more volunteers; businesses and nonprofits promote their goods and services; Sooke Region Tourism Association has a mandate to promote the region to tourists; the District of Sooke has an obligation to communicate with citizens. One challenge is that marketing is often an afterthought. Many small businesses are one-person operations. Time, energy and investment focuses on providing products and services to customers

and this in itself is more than a full-time job. They must find additional time for management functions like budgeting, planning and growing their customer base with little time or capacity for much else. In non-profit and public organizations funding is stretched to make the most of limited dollars. What marketing and promotion they can do is piecemeal and there is little public appetite for precious tax or donor dollars spent on promotion. All of these organizations – business, public and non-profit – are expected to be marketing experts as well as being experts at operating a gas station or restaurant, being a fire chief, running a minor sport club, or putting on an art show. Outstanding examples of successful local marketing include Vancouver Island Lodge and Sooke Harbour House – both have invested significant time and dollars in creating a fabulous product and service, and in attracting customers who enjoy a positive, memorable experience. Sooke as a whole benefits from their efforts. Meanwhile, other businesses struggle to compete with Langford retailers for Sooke shoppers, cultural groups need people at events, non-profits face volunteer burn-out, and they all compete for our attention. Tax dollars are spent on marketing activities (advertising,

sponsorship, grant funding, website) without clear objectives to measure performance or return on investment. A good start is to work together to coordinate Sooke’s various marketing efforts, build on success and identify common objectives that can be monitored and measured. The combined impact from better coordination and integration of sporadic and piecemeal promotion can be much greater than the sum total of individual efforts. Better overall marketing of the community as a whole would benefit all organizations and enhance individual promotion. Who should take the lead? The District of Sooke now funds SRTA, the chamber and the Info Centre (through the Sooke Region Museum) as well as its statutory and discretionary promotion. It’s a logical place for leadership. There are hands up from people willing to volunteer their expertise. Let us help. Doni Eve Sooke

Just who are the stupid ones? Well, I’m perplexed! South of the border, U.S. citizens were fined for flying a drone over a pod of killer orcas within the limits set forward to protect them, which is not permitted. Makes sense to me. Keep in mind no one got hurt. Now, a fire rages

in Washington state and and hundreds of thousands of human lives are being affected. Property damaged, homes gone, vehicles reduced to melted plastic and rubber. Not to mention the multi millions of trees burned to the ground and livelihoods. That fire will cost every U.S. citizen the financial burden of repair. All because of one individual’s mistake whether intentional or not. The same thing can and will happen here, someday. We are hopefully nearing the end of a long drought but it’s still a fire bomb just waiting to go off. This happens on a regular basis here in Sooke, a local resident or transient decides it would be nice to have a camp fire and roast some hotdogs and marshmallows. Sounds cozy. Well it’s not. Another person driving down the road throws a lit cigarette out the window thinking “no big deal.” Well it is. What if one or both, on the same night get out of hand and a raging fire starts and wipes out every home and business here in paradise? It can happen. Wake up, smell the roses before they are ash. Fine the drone guy, let “fire stupid” off with a warning and increase everyone’s taxes to pay for the damage. Canadian, eh? Imagine our village a complete smouldering piece of ash with everything gone. Chernobyl, a new beginning but never the

same. We really can’t do anything about Mother Nature, but we can do something about stupid. Or we could just say: “It’s OK, just try not to let it happen again.” Ask yourself: who are the stupid ones? Kel Phair Sooke

Plus, recovered materials go back into the manufacturing supply chain so that fewer natural resources are required. Find out how to safely and securely recycle your electronics now. Nature’s warranty is counting on it. Learn more about the electronics recycling program at:

recycleMYelectronics.ca/bc

For collection site locations and acceptable products, visit:

return-it.ca/electronics/locations

An industry-led not-for-profit organization

This program is funded through Environmental Handling Fees that are applicable to new electronics sold in the province.

We’re not sure how many farms are growing strawberries and raspberries in the area today, but in the 1940s and 1950s they were a popular crop. Behind Gerry in

The Pastor's Pen

For parents with school aged children this week might Cut this adwonderful out and to It’s driver be considered “the most timereturn of the year”. ✂ to be eligible for Bonus Prize Draw time to go back to school. Schedules will be re-established and the comfortable rhythms of life will sooth the frazzled nerves of parents. The kids might not agree, but having predictable daily rhythms is a good thing. It brings order, certainty, and stability. Summer vacation is great for rest, relaxation, and revitalization, but there is comfort in getting back to the regular schedule. It’s the way that God designed us from the beginning of creation. In the creation account of Genesis, God works 6 days and rests on the 7th. We are told to do the same. We were designed to work 85% of the time, and rest 15% of the time. It may seem counter-intuitive in a society that is driven by success, but you are more productive when you pause from work for a time. The rhythm of “work, work, work, work, work, work, rest, and repeat” is a rhythm that resonates with our body, mind, and soul. When followed, it provides 52 days a year of rest. Take one day a week to cease from work to enjoy creation and creator. Including a weekly worship gathering in your regular schedule facilitates this rhythm very well. It makes you pause, acknowledge God, spend time with family and friends, and recreate. As the community shifts gears this week and reacclimatises to the school schedule, consider attending a worship gathering in as a regular part of your weekly rhythm, whether that is weekend mornings, or mid-week evenings, or at the end of your shift rotations. This isn’t the usual time of year for resolutions, but this season does lend itself to new beginnings – and not just for those going back to school.

Never wavering in popularity, Sooke Fall Fair demonstrates the wholesome, down to earth values that have traditionally been so dear to the hearts of the people of our district. The strawberry farm shown here in the late 1950s belonged to Arthur and Elaine MacFarlane, located just west of the Sooke River bridge. Displaying her tray full of luscious strawberries was Gerry Eddy, eldest of the three lovely daughters of Bill and Dorothy (Doey) Eddy of Sooke River Road. Picking berries was a handy way for young girls to earn pocket money in their high school years. Pickers

*

Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh were in Canada primarily to open the St. Lawrence Seaway, that this distinguished strawberry shortcake meal took place at the hotel. Their berry crop was British Sovereign, and MacFarlane’s only son, Douglas, recalls that his parents were especially proud as well that the rich earth of their riverfront farm was able to produce a berry that weighed in at three quarters of a pound. ••• Elida Peers is the historian of Sooke Region Museum.

Contributed

Another interesting difference between gardening then and now, was that deer lived in the woods at that time, and were seldom seen in village yards. Loading up their Suburban and their pickup, heading for Saanich, Arthur and Elaine MacFarlane sold their berries to a specialty produce wholesaler, who distributed them at premium prices to selected customers. With the population Sooke has today, one could imagine they would be easily gobbled up by local customers. One of their proudest deliveries was when they were chosen to supply visiting royalty staying at the Empress Hotel. It was in late June 1959 when Queen

Donations sought for artisan who lost Where in the World ... carving tools in fire Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

Bruce Carlson, a Pacheedaht First Nation artist and lifelong Port Renfrew resident, found himself and his family in a very tough spot after his house burned down – with everything in it – a couple of weeks ago. Carlson carved totems, masks, as well as other aboriginal works out of wood, which he sold abroad. He also served as the local community’s tow service, being the only one with a tow truck and proper equipment in the small community. That won’t be the case any longer, as all of his carving tools, as well as the pieces he was working on, burned beyond repair in the fire. And while his truck, which was parked next to the house, had a cracked windshield and minor body damage, two compressors were destroyed. The cause of the fire remains unknown. “Now he’s got nothing – no tools to work with and no one to tow and help with his truck,” said Ardina Jones, Pacheedaht health director. Just days after the fire, which took place in the early hours of Aug.

“Now he’s got nothing – no tools to work with and no one to tow and help with his truck.” – Ardina Jones, Pacheedaht health director 23, significant relief efforts were made on behalf of the T’Sou-ke First Nation, delivering clothes and other small items. Much remains to be done, however, as the rebuilding and recovery process for Carlson and his family has barely begun. Jones noted one of the family members suffered burns on his back and his wrist while he was leaving the house. He received treatment from a paramedic. In an effort to help the trauma-stricken family back on its feet and aid Carlson in making a living again, Jones is asking for anyone willing to donate any of the tools he lost in the fire, such as a carving knife, adzes, chainsaw, bandsaw, plainer, generator and sandpaper. For info on how you can help or donate, please contact Ardina Jones at: 250-647-5521, ext. 213.

Sooke Minor Hockey takes direct shot at harassment New programs aimed at sportsmanship on and off the ice Kevin Laird Sooke News Mirror

Kevin Laird/Sooke News Mirror

A hockey coach outlines the finer details of the game to a group of pee wee players during a Sooke Minor Hockey Association tryout camp at SEAPARC arena Thursday. the ice and unable to attend practices or games until it is rectified. VIAHA also has an additional code of conduct that needs to be filled out. “We have had incidences [in the past],” Vivian said. “Do I think this is going to stop every incident from happening? No, I don’t, but it will make people think twice and remember why the kids are out there.” This year Sooke Minor hockey will ice 18 teams. There will be both pee wee and midget rep teams and an atom development squad. There will be no bantam team this year due to a lack of players.

The rest of the teams will form house league. There will also be

one less female team, and not the reason you might think. More girls are registered for hockey but prefer to be on integrated teams. Sooke Minor Hockey is also initiating a new development program this year for its 276 registered players, with guest coaches coming from up Island to teach. BETWEEN THE LINES … Coaches are still needed for all divisions … a cap has been placed on the number officials this year due to the number of individuals who have volunteered. Dee Vivian said they capped the number so that all officials get as many games as possible.

Live cabaret coming to community hall Octavian Lacatusu

The Sooke Community Arts Council is holding their Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, September 15th, 2015 at 7 pm in the Potlatch Room of Sooke Harbour House Please come & join us to help promote the arts in our wonderful community. Members and new or non-members welcome.

Sooke News Mirror

With all the rain and shorter daylight hours, fall season may feel like a bit of a downer for some, but needn’t worry, there’s a cure — it comes in the form of a cabaret show and a Halloween costume party… right here in Sooke. Put on by Cabaret Sooke in partnership with the Sooke Harbour Players, the show, called Sticky Mess (go ahead, have a chuckle) will be a mix between a club cabaret, dance and costume party, combined with burlesque humour, dancers, quality vocalists, as well as acrobatic pole and circus artists. All of which takes place at the Sooke Community Hall towards the end of October (either 23 or 24, exact date is yet to be determined). “What’s not to like?” chuckled Jill Sweetin, the same mastermind behind last spring’s cabaret show at the Hall, which, in spirit, paid tribute to the splendour and pantomime of Al Capone’s parties back in the prohibition days. To remind us that we’re not partying in the 1920’s though, two local DJs; Philippe Prez and Lilith Chamleon are expected to blow the roof off for this year’s show, along many other vocalists and music artists. Sweetin said the audience will be immersed “in a bygone era of cabaret amidst a soundscape of the best modern bass music.” Having worked with many of the returning faces for this year’s upcoming shows, she feels pretty confident the group will pull off a great performance. “All these people are incredibly talented, they just bounce off each other. We share skills, so we’re always learning,” Sweetin said. Sweetin spent years working professionally in Montreal and Europe as a performer, director, writer, and designer with companies like Cirque du Soleil, Just for Laughs, Circus Space UK, and Slava Polunin to alternative theatre and cabaret. Her goal is to create the ultimate nightlife experience here in Sooke.

Among the performers for October’s show will be the Roller Derby girls, along with a display by the Edward Milne Community School cheerleading squad. And it won’t be the last cabaret show this year, either. Sweetin

says the a New Year’s Eve event is also in the works, though an official date isn’t confirmed yet. Show dates in October will be confirmed Sept. 8 with the Community Hall and tickets for Sticky Mess will go on sale Sept. 15 at The

Stick in the Mud and Shoppers Drug Mart. Don’t think you can only be part of the audience, either. Cabaret Sooke is always looking for new artists, musicians, production crew, backstage help, and volunteers. Next two Wednesdays,

Arts Council looks for new members, ramps up for 2016 Octavian Lacatusu Sooke News Mirror

After another art-filled year, the Sooke Community Arts Council will be reviewing projects for next year, as well as who will be spearheading the operation into the future at its annual general meeting on Tuesday (Sept. 15). Significant emphasis, however, will be placed on encouraging more artsy Sookies to take part in the organization, which puts together local art events such as Appetite for Fine arts fundraiser, the Spring Art and Winter Art show, among others. Last Sunday, SCAC group organized Beach Art at Whiffin Spit, where artists used only natural materials they could find in the area, such as driftwood, rocks, shells, seaweed and sand to bring their art to life. Now, the club will prepare for its annual winter show, which is expected to be held in November-December, at the Reading Room Cafe. Following that is the Family Art Show this spring, which will be held in conjunction with the Sooke Family Garage sale at SEAPARC Leisure Complex. Lynda Slater, Sooke Arts Council vice-president is eager to help keep the organization’s momentum going in the community, and to help continue attracting new members. “The arts council isn’t just about artists promoting their art, it’s about promoting art in the community as a whole,” she said, adding that SCAC is in need of volunteers to help run the show. The club has around

120 members, though not everyone is an active member. The group also works in partnership with other arts in the local

community, such as the Sooke Philharmonic, Sooke Writers’ Collective, Sooke Harbour Players, the T’Souke First Nation,

Sooke Dance Studio, Sooke Food Chi and Barking Dog Studio. Slater said every year SCAC will also hand out a grant to a school to

help promote an art or music event or activity for students. “There are some amazing artists here, they are hidden

everywhere, so we hope they come forth and present their work with us in the future,” she said. SCAC will have its

annual general meeting on Sept. 15 at the Sooke Harbour House, beginning at 7 p.m. news@sookenewsmirror. com

Sister Celebration planned for Sooke flats this Sunday Sooke News Mirror

MONDAYS

It was 10 years ago when the Irwin family was told daughter Daisy was diagnosed with infant leukemia. She was only 10 weeks old. Daisy made it clear she wasn’t going anywhere without a fight. After three rounds of chemotherapy as well as a bone marrow transplant, her cancer went into remission. “Her statistics were very grim, so we’re very fortunate to have her,” said Patrick Irwin, her father. This September officially marks 10 years of Daisy being cancer-free, which is why the Irwins will hold a party at the Sooke Flats this Sunday (Sept. 13), from noon to 3 p.m. to celebrate that triumph over the disease, with all proceeds going to Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. The public is invited. “We’re calling it Sister Celebration because we’ve got four daughters. We’ve always done something on the anniversary of her bone marrow transplant,” Irwin said.

Ron Neitsch Contributed

Salmon and crab fishing in Sooke continues to be very good. One of the best seasons for spring or chinook salmon in our waters continues to produce great fish in the 15-to-25 lb. range. Many sport fishing boats and some shore fishers are reporting good catches of chinooks west of the mouth of Sooke Harbour at Otter and Sheringham points. Favorite baits include anchovy trolled in a variety of coloured bait heads including; purple flash, glow/green/chartruese, glow tiger prawn. Best depths range from 50 to 95 feet on the downrigger, as many of the big springs are still being caught shallow. Last week saw some more larger chinooks to 40 lbs. being reported by fishing guides at local docks. As spring salmon season slows down, it will be time to start thinking about halibut fishing, which has been picking up as more fishers venture out on slower tides to hook into these exciting, tasty fish. You can drift, troll or anchor your boat to catch halibut in Sooke, the latter being most productive in the writer’s opinion. Some nice halibut up to 55 lbs. have already come onto local marina docks in the last couple weeks. Crabbing has also been good in Sooke Harbour, dropping traps during an incoming tide with fresh (not rotten) bait works well. Next in the Sooke Saltwater Series of fishing Derbies is the Sooke Coho Derby Oct. 10, look for tickets available soon at your local bait and tackle retailers.
