An angler makes his way down the Campbell River on a BC Day morning. With salmon returning to the Campbell, anglers are wading into the popular fishery.

Sixteen people taken off local roads for driving under the influence The Campbell River RCMP, in partnership with North Vancouver Island Traffic Services, were out in full force over the holiday long weekend targeting impaired drivers, patrolling rural recreation areas and

conducting road safety checks. Over the last week, 16 people were removed from the roadways as they were found to be driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, Camp-

bell River RCMP Const. Jackelynn Biller reports. Police interacted with over one hundred drivers as they passed through road safety

Impaired: Driver found with three times legal limit Continued from Pg. 1

PHOTOS BY JOCELYN DOLL/CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A vacuum-like machine is used to clean the artificial turf field of debris on a monthly basis, or, in this case, when glass is found on the field.

Artificial turf field vandalised JOCELYN DOLL CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

There has been ongoing minor vandalism since the artificial turf field opened earlier this year, but this week it got worse. On Thursday morning City Recreation work crews were out picking up glass and cigarette butts from centre field before using a vacuumlike machine to do a more thorough cleaning. There were also burn marks on the turf, something that the city crews

cannot fix. “On the odd occasion we have someone defecating on the centre dot as well,” said Brad Sephton, Green Space Coordinator for the city. Though there are security cameras overlooking the field, Sephton said they have been unable to get face shots of the vandals. At the moment parks staff are doing regular inspections to stay on top of clean-up after the fact, but Sephton said he’s sure that the police will get involved if necessary.

Park crews found burn marks on the artificial turf field Thursday morning. There was also glass and cigarette butts. Though the garbage can be cleaned up, nothing can be done by the city workers to fix the burn marks.

check stops that were set up in several locations, including McIvor Lake, downtown Campbell River, Willow Point and access roads to the Inland Highway. These check stops resulted in numerous drivers being issued Immediate Roadside Suspensions and their vehicles impounded. Four drivers were detained under the Criminal Code of Canada for Impaired Operation of a Motor Vehicle and charges are being forwarded. One of the individuals is believed to have been operating a motor vehicle with nearly three times the legal limit of alcohol in his body. Despite the extensive enforcement efforts by the RCMP, one person succumbed to their injuries as a result of a single vehicle collision on Hwy 28 on Aug. 2. Police suspect that alcohol was a contributing factor in this collision and North Vancouver Island Traffic Services are continuing to investigate. The Campbell River RCMP wish to extend their appreciation to the citizens of this community who assisted in making their roadways a safer place over this busy long weekend.

Cause of fire under investigation

A fire south of Roberts Lake continued to smoulder yesterday as firefighters put in another day attempting to contain it. The cause of the fire two kilometres south of Roberts Lake is unknown at this time but the Coastal Fire Centre is continuing to investigate it. Marg Drysdale, Coastal Fire Centre information officer, said there had been lightning strikes in the area but the cause had not been determined. The fire was reported Tuesday afternoon and

is located about 300 metres off Highway 19 on the east side. The fire had grown to about eight hectares in size but was being handled by ground crews and heavy equipment. This Level 1 fire appears to have broken out in a logged area. There has been no need for air support. Crews monitored the fire overnight Wednesday and were back at it Thursday morning. The fire was mostly a smouldering fire in the ground. No flames and little smoke could be seen

As a result of citizens reporting suspected impaired drivers to police, several vehicle stops were initiated and the subsequent investigations lead to drivers were being issued driving prohibitions and their vehicles impounded. In total, four persons are facing criminal code impaired driving charges, four individuals received a 90 day Driving Prohibition, two individuals received a 24 hours Driving Prohibition for Drugs, three individuals received a 24 hours Driving Prohibition for Alcohol, one individual received a three-day Driving Prohibtion, one individual continues to be investigated for impaired operation of a motor vehicle and one individual succumbed to their injuries in what is being investigated as an impaired related motor vehicle collision. “Please enjoy your summer and be responsible if you are planning on consuming alcohol. Alcohol is the leading cause of death on our roadways and the Campbell River RCMP, working in partnership with North Vancouver Island Traffic Services, will be actively targeting persons who choose to drive after they have consumed alcohol,” said Const. Biller.

Retraining for older workers displaced from workforce MIKE DAVIES

CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

N

orth Island College is holding an information session next week about a free course intended to help

older workers who have been displaced from the workforce get back to work. The course, New Directions For Older Workers, begins Sept. 12, but next Thursday (Aug. 11 at 2 p.m.),

NIC’s Continuing Education department is holding an information session for prospective students to learn more about what opportunities it could offer them. The program, as implied by its name,

is aimed to help those between the ages of 55 and 64 who have been displaced from the workforce find new directions and rewarding new careers later in their work life. “A large part of the

program involves identifying their existing skills and exploring their transferrable skills to a job that may be drastically different from the jobs they may have had in the past,” says NIC regional training officer

Celebrate 5x12 with Us

Wendy Samaroden. “It provides employment assistance services, such as resumé writing and counselling, and improves participants’ employability through activities such as skills upgrading and work experience.” Thanks to a funding partnership between the provincial and federal governments through the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers program, New Directions for Older Workers is being offered free of charge to qualified applicants. The information session next week, Samaroden says, will hopefully show participants that there are options available for them to continue

in the workforce. “It is hoped that the training initiative will propel participants to explore all of their options, including self-employment,” Samroden says, adding that the feedback they have received from previous offerings has indicated that the course was “lifechanging” for many participants, and they look forward to offering it again this September. Those interested in attending next week’s information session can register online at nic. bc.ca. For more information on the program, contact Samaroden at 250-9239728 or by email at wendy.samaroden@nic. bc.ca

Our View

Olympics still worth celebrating In recent years, the Olympic Games – and the organization in charge, the International Olympic Committee – have rightly taken some knocks. The IOC has come under fire much in the same way that soccer organization FIFA has, with allegations of all manner of corruption afoot, from host cities spending big bucks to convince IOC voters to choose them, to funds for venue construction mysteriously disappearing, as was reportedly the case at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. On that note, costs to host the Olympic Games have skyrocketed into the billions, which leaves the We say: In spite majority of right-thinkof everything, we ing cities – potential host all of them – to bow still love to watch sites, out on their own, lest our athletes their bids bankrupt its own residents. This leaves only bidders who are, in many ways, unsuitable to host such an event. Which brings us to this summer’s event in Rio, where organizers are so far behind they’ve given up much on the to-do list already – including the muchpublicized cleaning up of the outdoor water venues, which have reportedly made people sick. With all these issues, many have suggested the Olympic Games are simply no longer worth it, but try telling that to the hundreds of athletes who’ve waited four years – or in some cases, a lifetime – to perform on this, the biggest of stages. When the Games start on Friday (Aug. 5), many of the problems – with Rio specifically and the Olympic committee as a whole – will simply be pushed to the background, for better or worse, as we watch athletes soar to great heights. In spite of everything, we still love to watch the athletes, in their country’s colours, strive to be the best in the world. It is still among the most prestigious sports titles any athlete can earn. It has inspired millions to cheer, to cry, to hold our breath. It’s about pride and inspiration – and that’s worth saving. – Black Press

High school is not that scary PATRICK TRUELOVE RETIRED TEACHER

September is around the corner - a good time for some words of encouragement for our soon-to-be Grade 8s and their nervous parents. Parents, put yourself in your thirteen-year-old’s place for a moment: It’s the first day of high school, that much-moreimposing version of the safe little place you’ve attended since you were five. You’ve walked past it. You’ve seen those adultsized ‘kids.’ Some of them look like TV characters, and not in a good way. Now you have to actually walk through those big doors and make your way in this bigger world. Definitely, things will feel different. The place will seem noisy and crowded. But you’ll have your own very special personal space: your

Sometimes as children move into their teens they can become disconnected from their parents. This doesn’t have to be. Make a point of attending every single parent-teacher interview. Even if your kid is doing fine and there isn’t much to discuss, do it to keep up your connection with the school. Familiarity with your child’s daytime world will strengthen your relationship through the complicated years ahead. Patrick Truelove is a retired elementary and secondary teacher who has lived and worked in North Delta for over 30 years, but his words resonate here, as well.

Pirate Pak Day helps send sick children to camp Ahoy! On Wednesday, August 10, buccaneers both young and youngat-heart can re-live childhood memories by ordering an Adult Pirate Pak at 61 White Spot restaurants throughout British Columbia – including Campbell River – and four locations in Alberta. For the seventh consecutive year, a toonie

from the sale of every Pirate Pak will be donated to Zajac Ranch for Children, a local charity that provides kids and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities a unique summer camp experience. Pirate Pak Day has become an anticipated annual tradition that has raised a total of more

than $450,000 since its inception, and sent more than 300 hearties to camp. White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch runs from Aug. 15 to 19 and includes activities ranging from kayaking and climbing to swimming and horseback riding. “Pirate Pak Day is a big event for us, one that both our guests and staff

Letters

Seeleys take a moment to thank Campbell River To the Community of Campbell River: Twenty-two years ago I walked into Boston Pizza International seeking a franchise. I knew little about the company and even less about running a restaurant, but I was intrigued about their philosophy of community involvement, something that was common in my research about BP. Fast forward to 2016 and it is a decision that my wife and I do not regret. Yes there were times we actually wondered if the business would succeed. The lows were the loss of industry, jobs and more importantly friends and guests from our community. The highs have

exceeded the lows; Our involvement with the first Tour de Rock, Our infamous partnership with the RCMP offering free pizzas for safe driving during the Christmas holidays, and being recognized as large business of the year. We were one of the original sponsors of the Brind’amour Golf Classic and sponsored the first carvings contest. Since then we have proudly supported over 100 charities and events, contributing over $300

000 to our community. But most of all we have had wonderful staff who have helped care for our wonderful guests. This is and continues to be the reason we have enjoyed 20 years operating in Campbell River. I would be remiss if I did not state how the business has allowed us to grow as a family since my son Chris and his Wife Cindy joined us as partners. Thank you to all. Larry & Carol Seeley

ichael Duncan has had a remarkable life. The 82 year-old has danced for the Queen of England. He’s been a forest ranger in Northern Ontario. He’s lived homeless on the streets to research unemployment issues for a book – one of over 16 he has written and published. He’s crashed a biplane. He’s started a theatre school. He’s curated museums. He’s an award-winning artist who has owned seven art galleries. He’s taught both martial arts and creative writing courses and he’s always volunteered for numerous boards of directors and charitable organizations. But what he’s most proud of, in some ways, is the work he’s undertaken in the past decade or so, doing what he can for abused animals. You see, 16 years ago when he lost his wife of 30 years, Duncan found himself lost, as well. He admits, looking back on it, that he didn’t cope

well with his grief. But, two years later, as fate would have it, a saviour arrived in his life just when he needed one. One of his students in the martial arts class he was teaching was a veterinarian. The student had an Australian cattle dog named Ellie for whom he was looking to find a home. Ellie had been beaten and found dying in a field surrounded by her eight already-dead pups. Duncan met Ellie, they fell in love immediately, and he had a new best friend for many years. Ellie has now passed from the world as well, but Duncan keeps her memory alive. He has formed a fund called Artists Helping Abused Animals (A-HAA) to help the people who help abused animals and has been creating pen and ink drawings of B.C. heritage scenes and landscapes, donating the entire proceeds to various charities who need the help. It’s been going well on the Lower Mainland, so

he’s decided to start the same thing here. “I’ve realized, in my short time here, that Campbell River really loves its pets,” Duncan says. “So I want to do my part to help them here, too.” So he’s mirroring his past efforts in Langley, where he has raised thousands of dollars for animal causes, and has begun selling his original, unframed pen and ink drawings in both Pier Street Gallery and Awatin Aboriginal Arts for $200 apiece with all the proceeds going to various local charities and non-profits, whether it’s the SPCA or another animal cause the buyer would like to support. “I went to a school where – it sounds strange in this modern era – where we were taught that you should be like an ancient knight,” he says by way of explanation. That school was Gordonstoun, a boarding school in Northern Scotland which just so happens to also be where three generations of British

royalty have been educated, including Prince Charles. “We were taught that you look after those who can’t look after themselves. You protect women and you protect animals. So all of the money from my books, I give away – I’ve given away over $1 million from the sale of my books – and all of the money from my art, I

for abused animals, Duncan is out enjoying this beautiful part of the world he now calls home, getting inspiration for more work – but he can’t venture very far. “I’m partially crippled, because 50 years as a martial arts instructor has done me in,” he says, laughing light-heartedly as he groans slightly standing from his chair.

So if you are met by a nice older gentleman along the side of the Seawalk who asks if he can “say hello to your dog,” that’s probably him. For more information on Duncan’s efforts, or to get involved, pop into either Pier Street Gallery or Awatin Aboriginal Art downtown, and they’ll put you in touch with him.

Home sales a bit cooler in July

Home sales cooled somewhat last month but posted a 19 per cent increase over July 2015. In July 2016, 608 single-family homes sold on the MLS System compared to 512 last July. Month over month, sales decreased by 15 per cent from the 712 sales processed in June 2016. Last month’s active listings for single-family homes totalled 1,577, down 34 per cent from the 2,391 reported in July 2015 and beating last month’s figure of 1,621. This is a historic low for VIREB, which began tracking inventory levels in 1999. The last time inventory was this low was in 2005, when the number of single-family homes for sale dropped to 1,629. Economic factors fuelling the provincial housing market are strong consumer confidence, robust retail sales, and high employment growth. With GDP sitting at 3.5 per cent, British Columbia’s economy continues to lead the country. ly.” Low inventory is also contributing to rising benchmark prices for single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments. Despite those increases, however, the Vancouver Island housing market continues to be affordable compared to the Lower Mainland and Victoria.  “Home buyers in the VIREB area have a variety of price points as options,” adds Hoffman. “The benchmark price of a single-family home ranges from a low of $209,600 in Port Alberni to a high of $443,800 in the Parksville-Qualicum area, so there is a price to suit almost everyone.”  In July 2016, the benchmark price

of a single-family home in the VIREB area was $379,900, up just under 12 per cent from one year ago. The benchmark price of an apartment rose by 9.77 per cent to hit $207,900 while the benchmark price of a townhouse increased to $277,900, up just over 10 per cent from one year ago. Benchmark pricing tracks the value of a typical home in the reported area. The average price of a single-family home last month was $409,816, an increase of 12 per cent over July 2015. The July 2016 benchmark price of a single-family home in the Campbell River area was $301,400, an increase of 5.57 per cent over July 2015. In the Comox Valley, the benchmark price was $371,000, up 10.68 per cent from 2015. Duncan reported a benchmark price of $326,700, an increase of just over nine per cent compared to July 2015. Nanaimo’s benchmark price rose 15.46 per cent to $409,700 while the Parksville-Qualicum area saw its benchmark price rise by 17 per cent to $443,800. The price of a benchmark home in Port Alberni was $209,600, up 7.86 per cent from one year ago. -30- VIREB represents approximately 995 REALTOR members in nearly 90 member offices on Vancouver Island (north of Victoria). VIREB cautions that average price information can be useful in establishing trends over time, but does not indicate the actual prices in centers comprised of widely divergent neighbourhoods or account for price differential between geographic areas. 

Back to the Passage

Don McIver, 89, shows off an original 12-foot lapstrake rowboat built by Campbell River boatbuilder Ed Painter in 1952. The annual Passage on the Passage human-powered vessel crossing of Discovery Passage will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13 and McIver is being honoured by Passage on the Passage organizers. During the 1950’s, McIver rowed in much of Discovery Passage and the Gulf of Georgia usually in pursuit of salmon. Recently, he sold the boat to one of his previous Passage On The Passage rowing partners, Bridget Pomeroy. As this year’s event approached, however, McIver’s passion for rowing returned and he borrowed the boat for the annual event. With McIver will be his longtime friend Stan Goodrich also of Campbell River. McIver and Goodrich served on the Campbell River Environmental Council for many years and in 1993 unearthed the documents in Victoria that proved that the present day Beaver Lodge Lands were put in a trust by the provincial Government in 1931 to be used exclusively as an experimental forest.

Explaining Donald Trump as well as Brexit Things are never quite as they seem. As political pundits and commentators try to explain the extraordinary decision of Great Britain to leave the European Union and the bizarre rise of Donald Trump as the Republican’s candidate for the US presidency, they consider only the surface issues. The gist of their conclusions is that a growing distance between the rulers and the ruled has allowed the empty space to be filled by the unusual and eccentric. In essence, they contend, the political elite are not communicating

with the common people, so strange positions and characters have an appeal that would otherwise be dismissed as irrelevant or fringe. But this is only the surface explanation. Beneath it are far more profound and disturbing issues that are much more uncomfortable to confront and articulate — issues that politicians are reluctant to explore lest they be deemed radicals. And, perhaps, many voters may not be clearly aware that the actual source of their discontent is the system itself. The stunning events

are shrinking the middle class and bifurcating society into isolated classes of the odiously rich and the struggling poor. These are not the signs of a just and viable system. Free-trade agreements and the corporate forces of globalization are crippling the autonomy of governments, destroying employment security and disenfranchising voters. The methodical collapse of a reasonably compassionate social structure into an impersonal economic machine of engineered winners and losers makes for a

disquieting place to live. Then add to this corrosive pall the demoralizing effects of ubiquitous pollution, a worldwide energy structure in upheaval, the intractable malaise of the Great Recession, the insanity of terrorism, record numbers of refugees, and a rising human population that is crowding into cities, more places which are becoming progressively more difficult to organize as convenient, comfortable and affordable locations to inhabit. And hovering over these shadows is a warming planet with all the concomitant threats

that come with it. So the optimism that fuels public contentment is becoming increasingly scarce. The total social effect is an immense anxiety and uncertainty that expresses itself in unpredictable and aberrant ways. Perhaps many people haven’t carefully analyzed the litany of circumstances that are making them uneasy, or they can’t clearly articulate exactly what is amiss. But they know how they feel. And they want change — although the change they get may not be what they want.

CAMPBELL RIVER SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Ashley Adie makes a splash with her favourite sport

Howie Meeker Golf Classic Annual fundraiser being held Aug. 20 at Storey Creek Golf Course benefits Campbell River’s Special Olympics JOCELYN DOLL CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

F

or Special Olympic athlete Ashley Adie, participating in sports is more than just part of an active lifestyle, it also helps maintain a positive outlook. “I don’t know where I would be,” Adie said. “ [Special Olympics] gives me something to look forward to.” Adie first got involved when her family moved her to Campbell River

from Prince George in 2003. The sport she wanted to participate in wasn’t available so she tried swimming instead and fell in love with it. In mid -July she competed in the BC Summer games, finishing third in two of her five events. One such finish was she beat the fourth place swimmer by less than a second. “Me and the fourth place girl we couldn’t tell who beat who,” Adie said with a laugh. “We

As part of an ongoing series, the Mirror introduces another one of our wonderful Special Olympians. were debating it afterwards.” During the regular season Adie is in the pool two days a week. While she was preparing for the summer games she was training three or four days a week. As well as swimming Adie bowls, plays soccer, competes in track and field and snow shoes. Around here snow shoeing is lots of dry land training and driving up to the mountain on weekends. Her accomplishments

of note include last year’s Maximum Effort award from Campbell River Special Olympics. She said she felt honoured. It had been a tumultuous year and to be recognized for her perseverance was humbling. This year she received the Most Improved for track and field in recognition of taking on the 800 metre and improving her time as the season went on. At Provincials in 2005 she won four gold

medals and one silver medal in her swimming events, and in the 2006 BC Winter Games she brought home two bronze and a silver in swimming. More recently, in a swim meet this past April she placed top three in three of her six events.

Aaaand…..”its all about me time” IS DONE!!! RIDE James Durand

I signed up for the family rides I would be BC BIke Race in July stoked because towing 2015. I trained for a year the kids up a hill was a and this encompassed great workout. almost Well, every the is SPIN MY over,race weekend, it was group rides fun, I had a two nights great week a week and with my leaving buddies early for Jeremy and work three Al, and we mornings all walked away with a week to squeeze the coveted in more belt buckmiles. Our les only winter given to vacation those who became a training trip earned them by finishto a good riding locaing the seven days of tion with lots of climbracing. Mission accoming. Every time Chenoa plished…but what now? asked where we should In my head I am plango on a long weekend ning big adventures the standard answer was that take advantage of “anywhere with good the fitness I achieved. riding.” When we did Group rides to new

locations I’ve always dreamed of and maybe one more race before the year is out…..Then I hear that loud record scratching noise that reality often throws in your face, and I stop in my tracks. After a year of selfishness it might be time to focus on those who sacrificed so much so I could race this summer. My kids, the staff at

Swicked and mostly my wife. She has a road race planned in a couple of months and as much as I want to ride a ton right now, I am actually more excited about supporting her training, helping her find more free time and somehow making it all work so she can enjoy it without stress. For the next few months its all about Chenoa’s riding. So if

you see her out and about and wonder, hmm, why doesn’t James ride anymore? Now you know, I had my turn and milked it for all it was worth and now it’s my time to sit on the side lines…or maybe I’ll get a baby sitter and ride WITH Chenoa? Yeah, that sounds pretty supportive too. I’m James Durand and I’m Goin’ Ridin’

Despite her successes, a the end of the day being a part of the Special Olympics gives her a reason to get out of the house and be social. “I’ve developed such a new network of friends and acquaintances and developed good relationships with the coaches,” she said.

Though she usually attends the Howie Meeker Golf Classic, this year she will be attending a childhood friend’s wedding back in Prince George. “I gave my friend heck for planning it for that weekend, but she’s like sorry,” Adie said with a laugh.

GOLF Weekly One of the (deceptively) hardest shots in golf Mike Davies

“So we’re standing here in the middle of the fairway, and I’ve hit pretty much the perfect drive,” says Jason Tchir, head pro and general manager of Quadra Golf standing about 40 yards short of the 8th green. “And now I’ve got a shot I hate.” What’s so tough about it? Like he said, we’re right in the middle of the fairway, the pin is right smack in the middle of the green and there aren’t any hazards to worry about hitting over or around. “For me, it’s difficult because it’s about gauging down on the backswing with a wedge but still committing to the shot. It’s pretty easy for me to take a half backswing and then be intimidated and fluff my way through the swing.”

He says he wouldn’t be so hesitant about the shot if the pin was at the back of the green, because he’d have a larger margin of error. Because he’s got to land the ball in about a three-to-five yard space at the front of the green in order to get it to actually stop anywhere near hole-high, backspin is crucial. “If you’re swinging at it 100 per cent, you’ve got a lot more backspin imparted on the golf ball, but when you’re swinging at 50 per cent, you’re not striking through the ball with as much force, so you’re not getting that spin.” So how do you play this shot?

It’s not that you’re going to do anything “differently,” he says, but you do have to make sure you fully commit and focus on making solid contact, because it’s that contact that’s going to give it any spin at all. When you aren’t going to get much in the first place, you’d better squeeze all you can out of the shot, he says. Alternatively, if there’s no thick rough or other hazards between you and the green – as is the case with this particular shot – you could think about taking a lower-lofted club like a 9-iron and playing a bump-and-run. “For people that are maybe just getting going in golf or middle-handicappers, I would recommend taking less loft and maybe only flying it maybe half way and letting it run the rest of the way up and onto the green. It’s tough to predict which way it’s going to react when it hits and starts bouncing through the turf, but you’re taking a lot of the margin of error out of it that way. Or, he says, you can avoid the situation altogether by doing what his playing partner did on the hole: play less club off the tee so you ensure you’ve given yourself a full swing for your approach. “That’s not a terrible play,” he says. “It’s not a bad idea to do what you did and put yourself in a position where you actually have a full club in, because these partial ones are definitely tricky.”

Jason Tchir, head pro and general manager at Quadra Golf, takes aim at the 8th green from about 50 yards out, a shot he says is one of the many deceptively difficult shots in an already difficult game.

Jesse Cook brings the world of music to your own doorstep F

or Jesse Cook, music has been a journey, both sonically and literally. After two decades of crisscrossing the world in his restless pursuit of inspiration, innovation and collaboration, this virtuoso changed course for his ninth studio album One World. Rather than exotic locales, he stayed home in his studio. Rather than a foreign legion of performers, he relied on his own devices. And rather than exploring myriad culde-sacs of music he united them. The album pivots between worlds — past and future, familiar and fresh, acoustic and electronic — redefined by technology just like every element of modern life. The album cover, depicting a vast, ancient tree, personifies the content. We are all part of just one world and all music represents branches of a tree all joined to the same deeply rooted trunk. Despite its humble homemade origins, One World begins another chapter in the quest of this multi-tasking artist, composer and producer.

Virtuoso gutarist Jesse Cook will bring his world music-inspired performance to the Tidemark Theatre on Nov. 9.

To create the disc’s emotive melodies, fluid

grooves and rich sonic tapestries, Cook incor-

porated technology more than ever before.

3x1.5

Delivering Great Service and Great Value

The result is a perfect meshing of the personal hybridized stylings of Jesse himself with modern instruments in a modern context. Cook’s vast and varied catalogue has earned 11 Juno nominations including three in 2001 of which he was awarded Best Instrumental Album for 2000’s Free Fall. To date, five of eight albums have earned Gold Record status and 2 others Platinum. This is certain to be another unforgettable evening with this Canadian Superstar as he continues to explore the constantly evolving One World of beautiful music. For more information about Jesse Cook, visit: www.jessecook.com. Sponsored by the Campbell River Mirror, 2Day FM and Coast Discovery Inn, the Tidemark Theatre and Gee Dan Productions proudly present, Jesse Cook at the Tidemark Theatre on Nov. 9. Tickets are $45.15 (plus applicable taxes & fees) and can be purchased at the Box Office Tuesday through Friday between 12-4 p.m. Tickets are also available online: tidemarktheatre.com.

Wet Paint returns for its third year

A

group of art friends who have painted and shared their passion for several years are excited to be hosting the third “Wet Paint” Art Show and Sale in a Saratoga Beach garden August Wet Paint features 20 and 21. The eight artists, from the work of local Comox, Black Creek, artists. and Campbell River, plan to delight the senses with their fresh and marvelous array of new paintings. The art of Loree Cunningham, Sonia Hauser, Shelly Hollingshead, Jenny Mitchell, Michelle Ohlsson, Elaine Prodor, Lesley Rieck, and Kathi Rudko, represent a wide range of experience from a few years to more than two decades and an eclectic mix of subjects and styles. Seascapes, landscapes, still life, figurative art and abstracts in a variety of mediums (acrylic,oil, watercolour and mixed media) will be on display at the show. While our coastal environment can be seen reflected in many of the artists’ works, the style and interpretation of each painter is unique: Sonia‘s powerful animals and florals rendered in a vibrant expressive manner; Loree’s large and intensely lush still lifes and abstracts in oil; Shelly’s evocative abstract mixed media paintings; Jenny’s exciting explorations in paint and collage; Elaine’s a close ups of nature with their intricate detail, texture and subtle colours; Lesley’s enchanting light-filled acrylic paintings; Michelle’s personal take on the beauty of the coast; and Kathi’s figures, florals and landscapes in several media. Several of the artists will have their easels set up and be painting ‘en plein air’. They will be will be happy to discuss their process, technique and inspiration with the public. The show and sale will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 20, and Sunday, Aug. 21, at the Saratoga Beach garden of Lesley Rieck at 8870 Clarkson Drive, Black Creek. Mark your calendars, come enjoy the garden ambience and a light refreshment, watch our artists paint and perhaps take home a new piece of original art to brighten your day and beautify your home.

Remote coastal regions to get marine marketing boost PROCESS

mall and remote coastal regions can prepare for a boost in tourism with the development of a collaborative marine tourism marketing and product venture. With funding from the Island Coastal Economic Trust, the BC Ocean Boating Tourism Association (BCOBTA) is entering into the third phase of its multi-year marketing program. The AhoyBC.com website is a central component of this program. The site is a complete resource for marine tourists, offering everything from self-directed circle tour options to information on charters, west coast Aboriginal culture, marine parks, and more. The next phase of the BCOBTA’s work

will enhance marketing for the Broughton Archipelago, Discovery Islands, and Vancouver Island West. These remote sub-regions are less-frequented by marine tourists and boaters, yet account for one-third of all BC ocean boating tourism revenue. Marketing efforts will include more detailed content for trip planning, attendance at boating shows and sending a video crew and travel writer to the Discovery Island region. “The economic impact of marine tourism is huge, and even more so in remote regions and communities,” explained David Mailloux, Chair of the BCOBTA. “Even though most boaters stay in the Salish Sea, those that venture to the remote sub-regions

spend more because trip length is longer, party size is larger, and boats are bigger.” The Island Coast Economic Trust is contributing $14,400 to the jointly-funded $37,600 project to focus marketing efforts specifically on those remote regions. Enhanced community profiles, regional showcases and a presence at consumer shows are just some of the elements of the overall marketing effort. “In 2014, marine tourists directly spent $68 million in those three sub-regions alone, and the forecasts from the BCOBTA show that this project could generate a further $12 million over the next five years,” said ICET Chair Phil Kent. “Those numbers are significant, and that’s why

we are eager to see this effort get underway.” The Enhanced Marketing Project is expected to be complete by spring 2017. About the Island Coastal Economic Trust

The Island Coastal Economic Trust is a $50 million fund established in 2006 by the Government of British Columbia to help diversify the economies of central and northern Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. ICET is guided by a Board of Directors and two Regional Advisory Committees which include more than 50 locally elected officials and MLAs and five appointees. This exceptional team of

leaders collaborates to set regional priorities and build vital multiregional networks. Through a community-centred decisionmaking process, ICET has approved $49 million for over 160 economic infrastructure and economic development readiness proj-

ects on the Island and Sunshine Coast since implementing its grant program in 2007. ICET investments have generated over $278 million in incremental funding into the region. A full overview of ICET can be found at www.islandcoastaltrust. ca

BOOMERS & Beyond 6 Sources of Inflammation and Pain

3. Undiscovered dental infections may be hiding within a tooth or below the gums.

Aches and pains are the body's way of telling us that something is wrong. Inflammation is usually an underlying factor contributing to chronic pain and if it is not addressed, it is a can lead to heart disease and many other health problems. Addressing the sources of inflammation is critical to any long-term preventative health plan.

5. Dietary factors. The average western diet is often low in good fats and high in bad fats which fuel inflammation. Good fats like fish oil are rich in omega 3 which are anti-inflammatory. Other factors such as sugar and processed foods also contribute to inflammation.

Submitted by Dr. Nathan Jeffery, ND

Our top 6 sources of inflammation and pain that may surprise you:

4. Too much stress and no relaxation. Stress comes in many forms both physically and mentally. It may produce inflammation due to the physical wear and tear of our tissues. Emotional stress can influence hormone levels or prevent one from sleeping, both drive inflammation.

1. Poor quality sleep. Anything that interferes with sleep can be driving inflammation. Sleep apnea is one condition that may remain undiscovered and drive inflammation for a long time before diagnosis.

6. Hormones changes. At certain stages of your life you can begin to experience pain differently. After menopause there is a decrease in the level of estrogen which has been linked to pain regulation. It is also thought that certain types of estrogens may be anti-inflammatory.

2. Gut dysfunction. Gluten, food sensitivities and processed food are factors contributing to a condition called intestinal hyper-permeability or "leaky gut". When gut integrity is compromised foreign particles can enter into our blood which can stimulate the immune system to generate inflammatory mediators.

Chronic pain is a complex condition involving many factors that are not discussed above. An integrative approach involves the incorporation of multiple modes of therapy. Therefore, a thorough investigation including a detailed history, complete physical exam and diagnostic or functional testing is always recommended.

A case study for Reverse Mortgages Submitted by A. Gaudette

Don, in his early 70s had a stroke that left him partially immobilized. He and and Michelle, (in her late 60s) considered selling their house and moving into a retirement home. But, they both loved their home, (especially their garden). Instead of moving, they opted to fix up their house so it would be easier for Don to get around (wheelchair ramps, railings, etc.) It was a large investment, but worth the expense to be able to stay in their home. The question - how to pay for it? They considered a Home Equity Line of Credit but were worried that the payments could affect their monthly cash flow. They were also worried that, if Don passed away, Michelle’s household income would drop and she would have trouble making monthly payments and be asked to repay the line of credit as a result. This would mean selling the house. The solution? They took out a Reverse Mortgage. With a reverse mortgage, they accessed the equity in their home and were not required to make any payments until such time as they decided to move or sell their home. The interest simply compounded on the outstanding balance while the entire value of the home also continued to appreciate. When the home is sold, the accumulated amount of the loan is paid off, and the homeowners keep the rest. The Reverse Mortgage solution gave Don and Michelle the money they needed to stay in their home safely and with the peace of mind that came from knowing they would not have to sell their home until they were ready to do so.

Explore Strathcona Park’s Forbidden Plateau subalpine area

T

he Strathcona Wilderness Institute is offering outdoor exploration options for people of all levels of experience in our summer program.

For the intermediate hiker, Sharon Hill will lead a 16 km hike to scenic Kwai Lake at 9 a.m.on Saturday. Expect to take around 7-8 hours, and come prepared.

Bring lunch, water, sturdy footwear and clothing appropriate to the weather conditions in the mountains. The Kwai Lake route is an excellent introduction to the backcountry

subalpine areas of Forbidden Plateau, so don’t miss out. For those looking for a more leisurely afternoon, expert botanist Helen Robinson will lead a nature walk

around the Paradise Meadows boardwalks identifying later blooming subalpine flowers. Meet at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 7 to join this walk and learn about these beautiful wild-

flowers. All walks meet at the Strathcona Park Wilderness Centre on Nordic Drive, near Raven Lodge. Unfortunately, no dogs are permitted.

Suggested donation for attendance is $5-10,contact strathconawilderness@gmail. com to register or find more information on our website at strathconapark.org

Buying Coho Books a good story for two women ALISTAIR TAYLOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

T

he owners of Coho Books can relate to the old expression “a kid in a candy” shop. Jane Hirst and Lois Watson bought the longtime independent book retailer in April because the avid readers “couldn’t imagine living in a town that didn’t have a book store.” “We loved reading books. We loved talking about books. We loved reading about books,” Hirst says. “So that was sort of the passion part of the decision to buy the business.” Hirst and Watson met at a local book club and became friends. One day Watson came to Hirst and asked if she would be interested in buying Coho Books. Then-owner Pirkko Anderson was retiring and had the Shopper’s Row business up for sale. Watson was just closing a small business and was looking to get involved in something else. Hirst, meanwhile,

has worked in the nonprofit sector for most of her career. Neither had owned a book store before. One thing that made the prospect of owning the bookstore more palatable was the fact that it was a well-established business and wellknown and respected in the community. It might have seemed like a risky prospect getting involved in an industry that was undergoing change due to technology and dominance by large corporate book sellers. But Hirst points out the initial surge in interest in e-reader has abated somewhat and stats are showing that the purchase of printed books is increasing. “That certainly reflects the experience of our customers,” Hirst says. Hirst says eBooks are a great if you’re going away on a trip and want to load up on some reading material. But a lot of people are still showing a preference for the printed product and holding a novel in their

hands. “People continue to still talk to us about the importance to them of being able to open a new book and to hold a new book and to have books around their home,” Hirst says. And the independent bookseller is not going anywhere any time soon, either. In fact, Vancouver Island is a bit of a hotbed for independent booksellers. “A lot of the communities support independent book stores,” she says. Hirst expected that online sellers like Amazon or Chapters would be their main big competitor but that is not proving to be the case. It’s not just that Coho customers are often not interested in shopping online or don’t like to use their credit card online but it’s also because a lot of Coho’s business is special order books. Whereas online retailers carry bestsellers, Coho’s customers are often looking for a specific book and know that Coho can get it for them. “They come in with their list because they know we can (get it for them),” Hirst says. But there’s another component of Coho customers’ behaviour and that is their belief in not just shopping local, but living local. “People often comment about the importance of supporting the local store,” Hirst says. “We believe in that as well; shopping local and living local and the importance of doing that.” There’s an ethic of supporting local businesses but also in dealing with real people,

face-to-face interaction and enjoying the atmosphere of a bookstore. “You can’t talk books with people on Amazon,” Hirst says. But old fashioned values of customer serivce are still important too. Customers who believe in an ideal don’t eliminate the need for a business to provide people with a great experience when they walk in the door. And shopping local works both ways for Coho Books. They work with local businesses to provide them with services like graphic design products and photography. Hirst points out that they benefit from shopping local in another way. She says they’re thankful for the support they get from local teachers. Coho doesn’t supply textbooks but district teachers make

a point of shopping with them when it comes time to providing supplementary reading material for their students and that is greatly appreciated. She also says there’s a real camaraderie amongst Shopper’s Row and downtown retailers. Their fellow merchants are often quick to provide advice and assistance. “People have been very generous with their advice and words of wisdom for a couple of retailers who haven’t done retailing before,” Hirst says. When they first got into the business, one of their biggest challenges was finding out what Campbell Riverites like to read. One thing that has helped them with that is the use of a data base service which keeps track of what is selling and who is buy-

ing. It also keeps track of trends across the province. They buy their books from large and small publishers but they tend not to focus on massmarket paperbacks. Those kinds of books are readily available from large retailers like Walmart and Costco. “We can’t compete with the Costcos and Walmarts of the world so we choose not to,” Hirst says. What they do well with is children’s books, fiction, mysteries and fantasy. During the tourist season, guide books, outdoor books and West Coast nonfiction do well. “Mind, body, spirit” books are also popular. Genre popularity can be seasonal, as well. The afore-mentioned outdoor books and local travel material are popular in the tourist sea-

son. Then as you move into the late summer and fall, cookbooks and how-to books that deal with things like canning come into demand. In the immediate future they intend to explore ways to keep bringing people into the store with things like readings and author visits. So, for a couple of new booksellers, Coho’s Hirst and Watson seem to have hit the ground running and are keeping the local bookstore concept alive and well in Campbell River. “It’s going really well,” Hirst says. “We get lots of positive comments about the store.” They moved the store two doors down from its longtime previous location. The new address is 1066 Shoppers Row and, of course, it has a website at www.cohobooks. com.

A small group of advocates stopped at Campbell River City Hall last Friday as part of their tour of Vancouver Island to protest and raise awareness of forced organ harvesting in China. Carrie Gilkison, spokesperson for the tour, says we are all complicit in the Chinese Communist Party’s oppression and murder of Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa) practitioners. The group is calling on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to stand up against what they are calling “genocidal scale” persecution and murder when he heads to China in September. The Chinese government, Gilkison says, has been persecuting Falun Gong practitioners since 1999, when then leader Jiang Zemin decided to crush the practice. “It’s not something that’s rational,” Gilkison says. “Most rational people don’t turn on a group of peaceful people, who have regular jobs and are contributing members of society and are striving towards the principles of Falun Dafa – truthfulness, compassion and tolerance.” The Vancouver Island tour is part of a broader awareness-building campaign happening across Canada right now.

Those anglers fishing outside Campbell River have been bringing in good catches of salmon to be smoked or canned. This week I checked the catch reports at Painters Lodge and from the last 15 fish brought in, the size was between 15 and BIG SMILES, BIG FISH AT PAINTERS LODGE 24.5 pounds. Jake Kamps got a 24.5 and Cody Sutton a 22, Local lakes are fishing good but I find that the better fishing is in early May Mike Porter a 16.5 and Tom Leffler a and by this time, the stocked lakes are 16.

and from the top of the chairlift, I had a pretty good view of Comox Lake. Those fishing Comox Lake usually troll spoons or plugs and keep the lure sizes small. Working well are Coyote spoons or Tomic plugs and the secret is finding the drop-off and getting deep. Since I fish primarily with a fly, I use a sinking line with a Carey Special fly in green or black but a proven winner is a Muddler Minnow in a size 8 or even 12. The pinks are in weaker numbers but anglers who know what they are doing are catching fish and the kids will have a ball using spinning gear for a pink and keeping the lure or jig colours pink or red. Last winter, when I had my fly tying for beginners, we created a fly that was a number 12 hook with a pink head and a blue body made of blue plastic. It proved to be very effective in hooking cutties in the Campbell River and the same fly in purple was fishing very good in the Oyster River.

Local First Nations among groups signing marine plan implementation agreements with province

60 60 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || FRIDAY, FRIDAY, AUGUST AUGUST 5, 5, 2016 2016

The province and 17 coastal First Nations signed implementation agreements for four Marine Planning Partnership (MaPP) marine plans, collaboratively developed for the North Pacific Coast. “I’m pleased that we are able to formally begin implementation of these important marine plans. These plans chart a long-term vision for our northern maritime areas and provide a useful set of recommendations to help facilitate the review, assessment and referral processes for marine use applications,” said Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations in a government press release. Completed in 2015, the plans foster a balance between stewardship and economic development using an ecosystem-based management approach that includes recommendations for marine

management, uses and activities. Plans have been completed for four subregions: the Central Coast, Haida Gwaii, North Coast, and North Vancouver Island. In addition to the sub-regional marine plans, the Regional Action Framework, released this spring, outlines actions related to marine management that the Province and First Nations agree will be most effectively implemented on a regional scale. These actions are consistent with and support implementation of the subregional marine plans. Taken together, these plans will inform First Nation and provincial decision-making in the respective sub-regional coastal and marine areas. The marine plans do not address management of uses and activities that the province considers to be federal government jurisdiction. First Nations and

www.CampbellRiverMirror.com

the Province commit to working with the federal government on those issues. In signing the implementation agreements, the partners agree to co-lead implementation of the marine plans, including ongoing engagement with communities, local governments, and stakeholders. The agreements describe how the province and First Nations will work together and how implementation activities will be prioritized and managed. Example priorities include continuing collaborative governance arrangements; implementation of marine zoning; fostering marine stewardship, monitoring and compliance; and facilitating sustainable economic development opportunities to support healthy communities. Implementation of the four marine plans will complement related plans and planning activities, such as the

Pacific North Coast Integrated Marine Area Initiative, and the development of a Marine Protected Area Network for the Northern Shelf Bioregion, in addition to other MaPP partner initiatives within the sub-regions. According to Dallas Smith, President, Nanwakolas Council which includes the Mamalilikulla Nation, Tlowitsis Nation, Da’naxda’xw Awaetlatla First Nation, We Wai Kum First Nation, Kwiakah First Nation, and the K’ómoks First Nation, “The Nanwakolas Council is pleased to confirm an official implementation agreement with the Province that commits to our continued

co-leadership in implementing the North Vancouver Island Marine Plan in our member First Nation territories. We jointly developed this marine plan with B.C. and signed it last year, on the condition of a formal implementation agreement. We now look forward to accelerating projects that will increase our governance and influence over marine uses and activities in our territories, as well as projects to achieve our goals for improved community economic health and ecosystem health.” said Kelly Russ, chair, Coastal First Nations - Great Bear Initiative said, “The implementation of marine plans

ensures strategic, forward-looking planning for regulating, managing and protecting the marine environment. These plans include addressing the multiple, cumulative, and potentially conflicting uses of the ocean. The Coastal First Nations believe the marine plans are an important tool to balance existing and new ocean uses with protection, conservation and restoration of ecologically important ocean and coastal habitats.” Learn More: Full copies of the four plans and plan overviews are available at: http://www.mappocean. org and at: https://www.

Another successful year for City’s Youth Action Committee The City of Campbell River’s Youth Action Committee (YAC) has disbanded for summer vacation after another successful year. YAC summarized their year-in-review accomplishments over a pizza and sushi party with Mayor and Council, the city manager and deputy city manager, who expressed appreciation and encouragement to the youth who volunteered their time to share their perspective on a broad range of topics and City projects. “Members of YAC often act as stakeholder representatives at consultations and events,” explains deputy city manager Ron Neufeld. “They have been invited to help on a number of projects, including gathering data for a public art inventory this spring. They also welcomed guest presenters who attended their meeting to ask their opinion on various projects.”

The Youth Action Committee of 2015/2016 was made up of approximately 15 high school students in grades 9 to 12 at Carihi and Timberline schools. Highlights from the year include the Earth Week Film Festival, a presentation by three YAC members to Council on YAC’s downtown revitalization survey, a visit from MLA Claire Trevena, and making recommendations to the transportation department about cycling in Campbell River. “YAC’s presentation on downtown revitalization at a council meeting earlier this year was high-quality, one of the best Council has seen,” says Councillor Marlene Wright, who holds the youth portfolio. “I have b e en s o impressed by the dedication of these students to make our City a better place and share the youth voice.” “To me, YAC is a really

fun way to have a voice in my community,” says Sidney Demuth, who just finished Grade 10 at Timberline. “One of my favourite parts of YAC is seeing a project you’ve worked really hard on come to life! “I definitely plan to come back to YAC again in the fall. It’s a really fun time, and I encourage other youth to give it a shot.” “On behalf of the City of Campbell River, we congratulate all YAC members who have graduated this month, and we wish them all the best in this new stage of life,” says youth action committee staff liaison, Cassie Smith. Adds staff liaison Jennifer Furst, “We wish all members a wonderful summer vacation and look forward to seeing some familiar faces return in the fall!” Campbell River youth interested in being involved in meaning-

MANAGING YOUR MONEY Family money – a financial checklist for families

3x8 Investors Group

Raising children is definitely a joy — it’s also expensive. And, while parents are great at keeping track of schedules, appointments and making lists that keep their lives in order, financial planning can be forgotten in the rush and hustle of everyday life. But it’s important to have a financial plan in place if parents are to successfully navigate the different stages of their children’s lives – so here is a quick reference financial checklist for families. Pre-Baby • Research all available employee and government parental benefits so you’ll know what your income is likely to be while you’re away from work. • Review your current financial plan(s) and determine what you want to save in advance of having a child and what your family budget will be when your new addition arrives. • Save early and often, in a tax-efficient way. Use RRSPs and TFSAs to build a nest egg. • Investigate life, disability and critical illness insurance. • Arrange for a last will and testament or update your most recent will to be sure it includes your wishes for your child’s (and any future children’s) education, care and inheritance. Name a guardian for minor children in the event of your death. Infant and Toddler (0-5) • Register your child for all government benefits. • Open an RESP. The government offers a Canadian Education Savings Grant* which can provide 20% or more return on the money you save depending on your income. The Early Years (5-10) • Open a savings account for your child.

• Save the receipts from daycare and extracurricular programs because they may be eligible for the child care expense deduction. • Re-visit your financial plan and anticipated future costs to be sure you’re saving and investing enough to meet your goals. Adolescent and Teenager (11-19) • Talk to your kids about earning, saving and spending wisely. • If they have a part-time job, help them to divide their income into areas like current cost of living, future school savings and investments. • Teach them about loans and good and bad forms of debt. • Set goals with them and add incentives like matching their savings.

Young Adult (20-25) • Offer to contribute toward the purchase of their first home if they are able to save a certain amount on their own. • Talk with them about savings plans like TFSAs and RRSPs. • Be sure they understand all the tax deductions and credits available to them through RRSP contributions, their educational expenses, and so on. • Encourage them to work with a professional to file proper tax returns. • Include them in conversations about estate planning and where to find your will and other valuable information. Life can bring joy and happiness along with change and challenges. Your professional advisor can help navigate every stage by providing the personal financial knowledge you need and the right financial plan for your family.

Kathy Dickison, 58, passed away peacefully on the 20th of July, at her home in Campbell River after a courageous battle with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA). A Celebration of Life was held on the 24th of July at her home.

JENNY CRAIG ENJOY 50% OFF ENROLLMENT,

Kathy was born on February 25th, 1958 in Verdun, Quebec to Vera and William Kervin. She moved to Campbell River, BC as a child and spent most of her life in Campbell River. She worked as an Educational Assistant for School District 72 for many years.

Our family would like to acknowledge Dad’s “Yucalta Family” for their kind care and compassion during this past year.

She is survived by her husband, Robert Dickison, four daughters, Elisabeth Little, Mary Mirhashemy (Farbod), Sarah Little, and Hannah Little, and two grandsons, Cyrus and Kian Mirhashemy, her mother Vera Kervin, and siblings, Pat Kervin (Jackie), Joanne Embury (Tom), John Kervin (Krista), Mike Kervin (Adrienne), Susan Achari, and Roger Kervin.

Dad requested no service. Our family will gather together to spread his ashes in Scott Cove, where he spent many happy years.

(nee Davis)

June 18, 1969 – July 17, 2016 In loving memory and extreme sadness the family announces the passing of Lisa Ann Revoy. She will be forever missed and fondly remembered. She is survived by her four children, Steven (Kelliesha), Sheldon, Nicholas, and Rebecca, her newly born grandson Braxton, companion and partner Rocky Semkiw, father Edwin Davis, step-father Ralph white (Judy), sister Rosa Davis (Bob), nephews Brandon Davis, Matthew Davis, step-sisters Shelley Beleznay (Gerry) and family, Kim Getz (Greg) and family, Robyn Mudie (Rod) and family, and the father of her children David Revoy, as well as many extended family and friends. Lisa is predeceased by her mother Shirley White and step-brother Marc White. Lisa meant so much to so many. She had a beautiful smile that could light up any room and a kind compassionate heart. She loved to laugh and enjoyed spending time outdoors, hiking, fishing, camping, and gardening. Lisa will be remembered as a mother who encouraged her kids to pursue their dreams and to “go with the flow” when life brings change.

Ellestad Wiik Duo coming to Campbell River

W

e are extremely proud to announce another prize-winning music selection for our continuing Otter’s Holt House Concert series. Laura Ellestad (Hardanger fiddle and vocals) and Magnus Wiik (guitar, banjo, dobro, and vocals) are coming to our house on Monday, August 8 from 7-10 p.m. Tickets are a suggested $20 per person, all of which goes to the artists. The Ellestad Wiik Duo is living proof that folk music knows no

boundaries. Ellestad was so fascinated by Norwegian folk music that she packed her bags in 2008 and moved from Calgary to Valdres to study Hardanger fiddle. Wiik fell in love with both Irish and American folk music in the mid-2000s, and has taken over a dozen trips abroad to study these traditions. It took a Canadian to get him to open his ears to the music of his home country, but now he’s listening! The duo has released their debut album

together in June, entitled “On the Water” and we help them celebrate their album release tour by having them here. The material converges somewhere on the Atlantic Ocean. The majority of the tunes are Norwegian, but with Wiik’s guitar, banjo, and dobro accompaniment, the music always has one foot on either side of the Atlantic. Ellestad Wiik Duo is curious about the music’s origins, but they are even more interested in experimenting with traditions.

As a duo, Ellestad and Wiik have toured in Norway, Denmark, and Canada and have performed at dances, concerts, and competitions. They have delved into a large repertoire of traditional music, and their debut album presents a selection of this material. “On the Water” was released on June 10, 2016 on Just for the Records. The album contains nine Norwegian tunes, four American tunes, two Irish tunes, and a French-Canadian tune.

For additional information and reservations (required), either email barbaradenz@gmail. com or call at 250-9236361. We’ll take care of payment over Interac e-Transfer or cash and all the proceeds go to the band.

Laura Ellestad and Magnus Wiik play Norwegian, American, Irish and FrenchCanadian folk tunes. They will be in Campbell River at a house concert on Aug. 8.
