Refugee coordinator encourages group to bring Syrians to Alberni MARTIN WISSMATH ALBERNI VALLEY TIMES

You can help bring Syrian refugees to Port Alberni. That was the message an Anglican pastor brought to about 40 people gathered in the basement hall of Holy Family Notre Dame Catholic Church on Wednesday evening. It was an interdenominational event, with members of several churches in the Alberni Valley including Lutheran, United and Baptist congregants, who met with the intention to create a sponsorship group to help a refugee family. Rev. Bruce Bryant-Scott, refugee coordinator for the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia, said interest in helping refugees has increased tremendously in recent weeks since photos of three-yearold Alan Kurdi – the drowned Syrian boy lying on a Turkish beach – were published around the world. The response has likely been particularly acute in Canada, Bryant-Scott said, since news surfaced that Alan’s aunt lives in Coquitlam and had been trying to bring the family to this country. The boy’s mother and five-yearold brother also perished in the attempt to escape their war-torn homeland. “It transformed things,” BryantScott said of the photo. “An issue that I and people in refugee work have been slogging away at for – in

my case many months, for other people years – suddenly leapt into the consciousness of every Canadian. “A lot of Canadians became aware of the humanitarian crisis,” he said. “They became incredibly aware of Canada’s response to it.” Responding to the crisis is complex and challenging. BryantScott said part of the problem is Canada’s bureaucratic structure, embedding refugee services into the work of Citizenship and Immigration Canada. It’s like trying to fit a “square peg in a very small round hole,” he said. While Canada has been largely untouched by the crisis, the refugee situation is desperate. The hundreds of thousands of refugees pouring across European borders are only a fraction of the 11 million people displaced within Syria by the civil war there, said Bryant-Scott. Across the globe

there are an estimated 50–60 million displaced people, more than at any time since the Second World War. The federal government has promised to bring over 11,000 refugees into the country in the next few years. Of that, they’ll be relying on private sponsorship for 60 per cent of those cases, said Bryant-Scott. Private sponsorship is expensive, costing an average of $30,000 to support a family of four. Fundraising is a significant part of sponsoring refugees, Bryant-Scott said. Syrian and Iraqi refugees are currently a priority for the Canadian government, and could arrive within a matter of months, he said. Sponsoring refugees from other countries could take years. The quickest cases are refugees with a Blended Visa Office Referral (BVOR), which have already been approved by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and a local Canadian embassy. The Canadian government covers half of their costs and these people could arrive within a matter of weeks, said Bryant-Scott. The Anglican Diocese of B.C. works as a Sponsorship Agreement Holder. An SAH helps a “constituency group” sponsor refugees, providing assistance with applications and fundraising. Martin.Wissmath@avtimes

Protecting Port Alberni’s source of drinking water is at the top of the agenda as city council heads to an annual gathering for municipalities and provincial representatives in Vancouver next week, says Mayor Mike Ruttan. Residents are concerned about the effects of forestry operations on the community’s water source, said Ruttan, who wants a legislated assurance that the city will be informed of any logging operations within the China Creek Watershed. Although this network feeds into the municipal supply, the majority of the watershed is privately owned by forestry companies. “I’ve met with almost every mayor from Nanaimo to Campbell River and we all share the same concern: we need to make sure that we have as much say in what happens in our watersheds as we possibly can,” said Ruttan. On Monday members of city council are set to represent Port Alberni at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities Annual Convention, a gathering of local governments expected to include more than 1,800 delegates over five days in Vancouver. Premier Christy Clark will be attending as well as NDP opposition leader John Horgan and several provincial ministers. Council has requested a meeting with the Minister of Forests Steve Thomson to discuss the watershed issue, following regular discussions Port Alberni officials held with the provincial ministry and Island Timberlands over the last year concerning logging in the China Creek Watershed. These talks stem from a resolution passed by the city in August 2014 for IT to stop harvesting old growth in the steeply-sloped McLaughlin Ridge out of concern that the activity could interfere with the natural filtration process provided by trees. Ruttan said McLaughlin ridge isn’t currently being cut, but operations could resume in the future. “It’s not currently happening but there’s been no formal decision

not to log in there,” he said. “There is a potential if there’s logging on McLaughlin Ridge, that could hugely impact the quality of water in China Creek.” Island Timberlands recently gave the mayor a tour of operations underway by Coombs Country Candy at the eastern entrance to the Valley. Ruttan believes the company is taking the community’s concerns into consideration as the area is harvested. “They’re very small cut blocks, they’re just a couple of acres each one,” he said. “Forest companies are incredibly accommodating. But going forward, they are a company and could sell to another company that has a different attitude.” At the UBCM representatives will vote on 166 submissions made from local government’s across the province. Three matters are on the agenda from the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District, including the forestry industry’s reliance on exporting raw logs to be manufactured oversees. This trend has been particularly pronounced in Port Alberni, where the volume of raw logs shipped from local berths has increased from 82,272 tonnes in 2006 to 783,381 tonnes last year. Meanwhile 76,854 tonnes of lumber cut in local sawmills were shipped oversees in 2014. Other ACRD submissions up for a vote are for the province to fully fund victim services agencies to help those affected by crime and the establishment of a fund for search and rescue squads in B.C.

Council passes tax exemptions New guideline recommended for Places of Public Worship properties MARTIN WISSMATH ALBERNI VALLEY TIMES

While churches and public worship spaces are exempt from property taxes, the City of Port Alberni is considering taxing other buildings on churchowned properties in the future. Port Alberni city council approved four-year bylaws for places of public worship and permissive tax exemptions this week, totalling about $250,000 in waived revenue per year. Total estimated foregone taxes for 2016 amount to $244,730.35, including municipal properties, charities and non-profits, as well as properties attached to places of public worship. The total estimate for 2017 and 2018 together is $504,242.41 in exemptions. A total of $36,000 in exemptions in 2016 are included for the new places of public worship bylaw for properties owned by churches and religious organizations that are not directly used for worship services, such as church halls. This may change after the four-year bylaw expires in 2019, noted city clerk Davina Hartwell. Worship spaces fall under a statutory exemption in the B.C. Community Charter. Staff examined the places of public worship exemptions in detail, Hartwell noted in her report for city council. The Knox Presbyterian Church on Regina Avenue is no longer in use and will be taxable starting in 2016. The Community Investment Program Committee, which includes Coun. Ron Paulson, met last month to discuss the tax exemptions for places of public worship. They recommended that a new policy be implemented over the next four years “to establish specific criteria for granting permissive tax exemptions to ensure consistency for all places of public worship,” Hartwell reported.

Motorcyles filled Argyle Street last year as participants drove uphill from a visit to the Harbour Quay during the 2014 Port Alberni Toy Run. This year event is scheduled to begin at noon Saturday. [SUBMITTED]

HARTWELL

“This will likely involve a review of what other municipalities do in regards to exempting places of public worship and may result in a portion of these properties becoming taxable in the future.” Total foregone property taxes in the city are down about $50,000 from the current annual amount, with total exemptions in 2015 adding up to just under $300,000. City staff undertook a detailed review of each applicant “resulting in a number of amendments and corrections,” Hartwell noted. The Alberni Valley Senior Citizens Homes Society lost a statutory exemption for cottages they own and operate on 10th Avenue. Hartwell said the previous facility on the property fell under a statutory exemption for non-profit seniors’ housing funded by the provincial government between 1947 and 1974. The new construction does not fit that critera and will be fully taxable starting in 2016, Hartwell noted. The society does not owe any back taxes on the property. Several arts and athletic organizations receive significant property tax exemptions for the service they render to the community, said Hartwell. Martin.Wissmath@avtimes.net

COURT BRIEFS Alberni Valley Times Sept. 16 Sheldon James Johanson appeared via closed circuit television in Port Alberni provincial court. Johanson is charged on multiple counts of auto theft, possession of stolen property over $5,000, mischief and arson. He is implicated in a rash of truck thefts in Port Alberni and other Vancouver Island communities in May. Two co-accused have pleaded guilty to the offences.

Johanson previously pleaded not-guilty but in a CCTV appearance on Sept. 9 told the court that he was conferring with his lawyer. He is scheduled to appear in person to confirm a trial date Sept. 30. Autumn Dawn Desjarlais, 18, charged with second-degree murder in the death of Carlene Jack, 19, in July, had her case adjourned for a month until Oct. 14. Her defence lawyer said “it’s a complicated case.”

Over 1,000 bikes expected for Port Alberni Toy Run Event preceded by ceremony to remember ‘fallen riders’ ALBERNI VALLEY TIMES

Vancouver Island’s largest motorcycle event returns to the city’s streets this weekend for the 31st year. The Port Alberni Toy Run is expected to draw over 1,000 motorbikes of all shapes and sizes for the drive that annually collects thousands of toys for children in need at Christmas – plus tens of thousands of dollars for children’s programs and family events throughout the year, said a release from the event’s organizers. The run is preceded by a “ceremony to remember fallen riders” in Little Qualicum Falls Saturday,

“What makes this Toy Run unique are the thousands of people who line the route to cheer the riders, holding up signs, thanking them.” David Wiwchar, event chairman

according to the release. Engines start once the Alberni Black Power Club fires a cannon at noon. The run is planned to travel west along Highway 4 through Cath-

edral Grove and into Port Alberni to end at the Glenwood Centre at approximately 1 p.m. Riders from across B.C., Alberta and the northwestern USA are expected. “What makes this Toy Run unique are the thousands of people who line the route to cheer the riders, holding up signs, thanking them for helping the children in the Alberni Valley and West Coast communities,” said the event’s chairman David Wiwchar. Games and events for families as well as the hundreds of motorcyclists are planned at the Glenwood Centre following the event. news@avtimes.net

Election still too close to call at midpoint

C

onservatives, New Democrats and Liberals have fought to the midpoint of one of Canada’s longest federal elections campaigns without budging from a threeway stalemate. Indeed, the three contenders are now more tightly clustered around the 30-per-cent level of voter support than they were when the election writ was dropped. The NDP have been most consistently in the lead, but have fallen back from their strongest polling. Liberals have shown the most improvement in inching up to second place in many polls, but have tailed off. Conservatives have had the worst start, falling to third place before coming back to within a hair of the Liberals in the most recent polling. So far, no major leader has

That may change as the campaign intensifies. But if not, we are on track for a minority government. Who will lead it depends on a couple of things. One is an uncertain factor: who has a few more seats than the others and the first opportunity to form a government. The other is an essential skill: who is best at the co-operation and compromise needed to persuade another party to support him. Compromise and co-operation in Parliament are not Conservative leader Stephen Harper’s strong suits, even though he has managed two minority governments. And this time it’s hard to see NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair or Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau propping up Mr. Harper for a minute without suffering a huge loss of support.

Get the Two Spot chugging again

Hazards of ‘forced tailgating’

Large numbers of NDP and Liberal supporters say the other of these two parties is their second choice. Many are prepared to vote strategically to oust Mr. Harper, whom they wouldn’t consider supporting. Any leader who defied this feeling and danced with Mr. Harper after the election, would be courting political disaster. Realistically, Mr. Harper, despite the advantages of incumbency and the richest war chest, faces the highest bar, winning another majority. Six weeks have brought him no closer to that goal. One obstacle, the Duffy trial, has shone a disturbing light on unethical and overbearing conduct at the PMO, an image that may be reinforced by the influence-peddling trial of former PMO staffer Bruce Carson that began Monday. (Mr. Carson, of

course, must be presumed innocent unless found guilty.) But Mr. Harper hasn’t helped himself with tightly screened campaign events and a woefully inadequate response to the Syrian refugee tragedy that smack of isolation and inflexibility. Better economic news (that the recession may have bottomed out and the budget showed a surprise small surplus last year) may give him a boost. But finding swing voters to dance with him again, outside the Tory base, is proving a very tough sell. — THE CANADIAN PRESS (HALIFAX CHRONICLE-HERALD)

T

he topic of choice in the DriveSmartBC email box this past week has been about drivers who pass you in the left lane of a multiple-lane highway and then immediately change lanes back in front of you. This action leaves less (sometimes much less) than optimum following distance between you and the driver who passed you. It’s as if once passed, you are completely forgotten by the other driver. Since the driver who changed lanes doesn’t seem to care, suggested one correspondent, she had to keep dropping back to re-establish a reasonable following distance. Of course, once she did that another driver would fill it in again. Trav-

Tim Schewe Behind the Wheel elling this way on Lower Mainland highways almost became an exercise in going backwards. I’ve written about this once before in an article titled Forced Tailgating. The Inland Island Highway is often relatively quiet, yet a driver often passes me in this manner when there were literally kilometres of empty highway in front of both of us, forcing me into a tailgating situation. Out of sight, out of mind I guess.

It should not be this way though. Have you ever used the mantra mirror, signal, shoulder check, change? If you can’t see the entire front of the vehicle behind you in your center rearview mirror, you are not far enough ahead to change lanes yet. Having trouble fitting in? Perhaps an adequate signal of your intention will result in the other driver politely making room.

Hockey clinic for girls Bulldogs set for Four free sessions over three days at Multiplex 2015 home opener ALBERNI VALLEY TIMES

There aren’t enough girls playing hockey in the Alberni Valley, says a local coach. Paul Scott is helping to organize the Hot Shots Female Hockey clinic starting this evening at the Alberni Valley Multiplex at 7 to 8 p.m. It’s the first time the clinic is being offered for free with the help of local sponsors, Scott said. Four sessions include today, two sessions on Monday when school is out for a professional development day,

SCOTT

and a final session next Friday. Scott said girls who want to play on a female team in Alberni have to travel to

Parksville. It’s not a priority for the local Alberni Valley Minor Hockey Association, he noted. The clinics are aimed at all skill levels for girls aged seven to 17, Scott said. “The older girls actually mentor the younger ones,” Scott said. Skills focus on the basics on shooting and passing, said Scott. So far there are more than 20 girls signed up for the clinic, he said. Some are experienced hockey players and some are skating out to learn how to play for the first time.

Jays win 5-0 in Atlanta CHARLES ODUM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ATLANTA — Marco Estrada keeps showing he belongs in Toronto’s post-season rotation. That’s quite an accomplishment for a pitcher who began the season in the bullpen. Estrada combined with Roberto Osuna on a three-hitter, Cliff Pennington, Edwin Encarnacion and Josh Donaldson hit home runs, and the Blue Jays beat the Atlanta Braves 5-0 on Thursday night to extend their lead in the AL East. The Blue Jays lead the New York Yankees, who did not play Thursday, by 3 1/2 games. Toronto won two of three games for their first series win over the Braves since 2008. Estrada (13-8) allowed three hits with four strikeouts and two walks in eight innings. He did not allow a baserunner to reach second base. “He shut them down; he’s been doing it all year,”

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. Estrada lowered his ERA to 3.14 with his third start of the season with at least eight scoreless innings. His .206 opponents’ batting average leads the American League. It’s quite a season considering his first six appearances came in relief. “I just want to help the team any way possible,” Estrada said when asked

GRACE

to reflect on his move from the bullpen. Estrada faced 27 batters and threw 28 balls among his 99 total pitches. Adding to his memorable night was his single in Toronto’s four-run fourth. “I got lucky,” he said. Encarnacion led off the fourth with his 33rd homer, off Matt Wisler (5-8) and into the fifth row of the seats in left field.

Manning leads last-minute drive to beat Kansas City 31-24 DAVE SKRETTA THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

KANSAS CITY, Mo. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos have beaten the Kansas City Chiefs every way imaginable over the years, from playoff shootouts to defensive tug-of-wars. Well, not quite every way. Not until Thursday night. Denver cornerback Bradley Roby returned Jamaal Charlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second fumble 21 yards for a touchdown with 27 seconds left, completing a stunning comeback in the closing minute for a 31-24 victory â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; seventh straight over their AFC West rivals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not quite sure Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever been in one quite like that,â&#x20AC;? Manning said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a new one.â&#x20AC;? Manning threw for 256 yards and three scores, the last to Emmanuel Sanders with 36 seconds left as the Broncos (2-0) appeared to force overtime. But on the next play from scrimmage, with the Chiefs (1-1) also eyeing overtime, Charles was stripped by Brandon Marshall and the ball bounced right into Robyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands.

The dramatic about-face came after Knile Davis gave Kansas City the lead with 2:27 left on an 8-yard run, raising hope among a sellout crowd that the Chiefs might finally end some curses. Instead, Denver won its 13th

straight division road game, breaking a tie with the San Francisco 49ers (1987-90) for most in NFL history. And for one night, Manning quieted his growing doubters by improving to 14-1 in his career against the Chiefs.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been involved in a couple of pretty crazy games,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but nothing quite like this.â&#x20AC;? Charles finished with 125 yards rushing and a touchdown, but he will only remember his fumbles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one in the red zone early in the game, the other deep in his own territory late in the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to be careful with the ball,â&#x20AC;? Charles said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my fault.â&#x20AC;? Alex Smith threw for 191 yards for Kansas City, but also had two passes picked off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We thought we had it won,â&#x20AC;? Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, they made the touchdown and it was our time to overcome and win the game, and we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish. It was an emotional rollercoaster.â&#x20AC;? Manning threw a pick-six of his own, but he responded when it mattered the most. The Broncos took over at their own 20 after Davis had given Kansas City the lead, and the seven-time All-Pro marched them calmly down field. Manning found Demaryius Thomas for three long receptions to get deep into Chiefs territory, then hit Sanders with a strike over the

middle on third-and-10 from the Chiefs 19 for the touchdown that kept Denver alive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That last drive was really good,â&#x20AC;? said Manning, who joined Brett Favre during the game as the only quarterbacks in NFL history with at least 70,000 yards passing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really proud of our young offensive line â&#x20AC;&#x201D; no poise issues, no communication issues.â&#x20AC;? The late-game dramatics transpired after the Chiefs bolted to a 14-0 lead in their home-opener, energizing a boisterous, red-clad crowd that had been tailgating all afternoon. But like he has so often against the Chiefs, Manning answered by leading Denver on an 80-yard TD march late in the first half. The capper was a pass over the middle to Sanders, who slipped between the safeties and somersaulted into the end zone for the 16-yard touchdown reception. Two plays later, Aqib Talib picked off Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throw on a poorly thrown pass in the flat, and the Broncos needed just four plays for Manning to find Virgil Green with a tying touchdown toss.

In Loving Memory Of Margaret Jean Skinner who passed away Sept 25,2001 And Robert Ivan Skinner who passed away Sept 19 2013 Many years have come and gone since we said goodbye in tears The days go by so swiftly Yet we still feel you so near Dad was not the same without you Yet we tried to help him through His sorrow took his smile away There was little we could do.. We ensured he was safe and secure While kept him as comfortable as we could Together we all remembered you You made us smile again as you often would We saw him getting weaker As those days turned into years And now when we spoke of you His eyes would fill with tears We knew he was losing his battle we tried to accept what he already knew He was ready to say goodbye to us now It was his time to go to be with you Even though we miss you both so much And we can no longer hold you near When we look toward the heavens above We can still see you both so clear So today as we honour you both There is no distance that keeps us apart We now take comfort in the knowing You are together right here in our hearts Always an angel on our shoulders . donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say goodbye ..say so long.. with Love and Remembrance From all your family

Sept 30, 1930 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sept 6, 2015 It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our father, grandfather, great grandfather and friend Bob (Papa). Bob was predeceased by his wife Barbara in 2008 after 50 years of marriage. He will be sadly missed by his children Peter and Brenda, Tom and Alix and Alison and Tatsuo, his six grandchildren Melissa, Nicole, Mitchell, Amanda, Trevor, and Elizabeth, and his great grandson Hudson. He will also be missed by his many nieces and nephews and his close friends Dave and Joan Ackerman and Gary and Doris Young. Bob was born in Aneroid Saskatchewan (on the kitchen table) and moved with his family to New Westminster in 1942. He graduated from Duke of Connaught High School where he was a member of the Track and Field team and the 1947 BC High School Championship Basketball Team. After graduating from UBC in 1956 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering Bob worked in Montreal, Deep River Ontario and New Westminster. He eventually settled his family in Port Alberni in 1967 where he worked for MacMillan Bloedel until he retired in 1992. He spent much of his time building the family cabin at Sproat Lake and was an avid skier. He was still skiing with his family and friends when he was 74 years old. When he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t building or fixing something he was spending time with his grandchildren. He lived for his grandchildren and was the best Papa ever. Friends and family are invited to remember and celebrate Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life at the Best Western Barclay Hotel, in the Arrowsmith room from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Saturday October 10th,, 2015. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name to the Parkinson Society Canada or the Canadian Cancer Society.

SUSAN MARGARET WATSON June 1, 1922 - September 14, 2015

Surrounded by love, lifted in prayer, and after a full life, Sue died peacefully at West Coast General Hospital, Port Alberni, BC, on September 14, 2015. We were blessed to have our mom for 93 years and she will be forever loved and remembered by the three generations of her family, her children, Lynn Burnip (Rick), Leslie Reid (Tom, deceased), Doug Watson (Kim), and Gayle Hesse (Jim); her grandchildren, Meegan (Jay), Aaron (Tanya), Mike (Teresa), Bryan, Jamey (Keely), Ryan, Brea (Mike), Jason, and Matthew; and her great-grandchildren, Kyla, Zachary, Haley, Willa, Troy, Cody, Adam, Sara, and Magdalene. Sue is predeceased by her husband, George Bernard Watson; her parents, Elizabeth Ellen and George Augustus Bellamy; and her brothers, George (Ethel), Tom (Gen), and John (Betty), and sisters, Lucy (Roley), Nell (Gordon), and Ede (Tom). Sue was the youngest in her family; born and raised in Port Alberni. During the war years, mom met her future husband, George, married him in 1943, and accompanied Dad to PEI where he was stationed. After the war, they lived in Vancouver for a short time, then returned to Port Alberni to raise their children, develop a family business, and become a part of the community. Mom had a great love of the Alberni Valley, and was very active in preserving the history of the local area through the Port Alberni Historical Society and the Port Alberni Archives. Mom was a life-long and active member of her church, supporting and participating in many activities and prayer groups. Through the years, mom volunteered for the Girl Guides, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the Cancer Society, the Hard of Hearing Association, the Sea Cadets, and many other organizations. Mom met the challenges of her life with good humour, always thankful for her blessings, and not dwelling on her difficulties. She was generous of spirit and always considered the needs of others before herself. Mom was a loving, devoted, and proud mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who was keenly interested in, and encouraging of, her familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests and achievements. Mom was an integral part of her large extended family, and her home was filled with countless mementoes and photographs of special family occasions. Auntie Sue will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by her nieces and nephews. We would like to express our thanks to the staff at Heritage Place, who looked after her with great care during her last years. We hope you will be able to join us as we honour our mom with a Celebration Service at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 26, 2015, at Jericho Road Church, 5100 Tebo Ave, Port Alberni. A reception will follow the service. Flowers are gratefully declined. Because of momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support for mission and ministry, donations may be made to Jericho Road Church, 5100 Tebo Ave, Port Alberni, BC, V9Y 5Y6 or to The Heart and Stroke Foundation. Memories and condolences can be shared with the family at www.chapelofmemories.ca

THE ARTS

Nature Close Up and Away in PA Melissa Martin Art Beat NEW EXHIBIT The next art exhibit begins Tuesday, Sept. 22 and will run until Oct. 17 featuring 10 photographers from our very own AV Photo Club. This group show will have a broad range of local photographs, by this talented group of photographers, amateur and professional. Join us in the Rollin Art Centre gallery, Saturday, Sept. 26 from 1-3 p.m., for refreshments and to meet all the photographers who are showcasing their talents and beautiful photographs. CHRISTMAS MARKET This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s McLeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Christmas market will be back again, two weekends, Nov. 27-29 and Dec. 5-6. If you are interested in renting a table in the main building or one of the heritage buildings, there is still room. For more, stop by the Rollin Art Centre for your application, or call 250-724-3412. One weekend is $80, both weekends are $150. NEW CEDAR SWING The Rollin Art Centre was given a recent gift by Jim Lawson and the students of SD 70 and VAST. Stop by to take a swing on this beautiful new addition to the gardens, where many generations of family photos have been taken. Now, replaced by this work of art in-itself, many more generations will have the opportunity for family photos, or just a time to reflect. The old cedar swing was in desperate repair and ready to crumble when Jim Lawson took on this project, to teach his students the fine craft of wood working while giving back to the community.

â&#x153;ł un, Sep 20th, 2:30-4:30 pm, Musical Play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sherman & Leeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lost and Found â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Love, Loss, Lunacy - Roots

School is back. Back to the books, back to learning. Book learning is good and needs to be encouraged. It leads to many other areas of learning that are not in books. BODY: Looking around Port Alberni there are so many venues for outdoor sports and recreation. As a community our kids are provided with many opportunities to play team sports and to feel good while they play them. As school starts again, so do many sports. Parents are so good to provide these for their kids and to attend and watch games and support them. I am blessed and impressed as I look at what Port Alberni offers to kids in this area. SOUL: Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; emotions and feelings need to be attended to. Gordon Neufeld and Dr. Gabor Mate have written a book called Hold On To Your Kids, Why Parents Need to Matter More than Peers. They point out that kids need to be emotionally attached to their parents and know they are loved; kids need to have a compass. Parents and teachers are great at this, taking time to show a kid the way to go, never leaving it to their peers who cannot do this because they are looking for affirmation themselves. Just as in sports, parents need to be a coach to their kids. Think about where they can go in life, and what their giftings are. Hold onto them and take them there. Interestingly, they say that a child who has been allowed to depend on their parents will automatically become independent. Hold them close to your heart. SPIRIT: In all of the business of life and providing schooling, sports, time with family, can I encourage you to not forget the spirit. Kids need a worldview that there is a God who loves them, to know that God is in their corner. Many times now the medical profession is acknowledging that those who have a faith fare better against the difficulties of life. Can I encourage you to not just send your kids, but take your kids to a church where people really love Jesus. Just as you would take them to games, take them to the church of your choice. Be their coach and their leader in this area as well. You will never regret it. I Thessalonians 5:23, â&#x20AC;&#x153;body, soul and spiritâ&#x20AC;?
