The City of Campbell River and Strathcona Regional District are joining forces to reduce the risk of a wildfire that could potentially destroy the museum. The regional district, through its Strathcona Emergency Program, is pursuing funding to create a plan that will identify the steps necessary to lower the fire hazard in the forested area surrounding the Museum at Campbell River. Shaun Koopman, the regional district’s protective services coordinator, said he is working on a grant application for a 2017 Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative Fuel Management Prescription. “The proposed area for the prescription is the forest located west of the Campbell River museum,” Koopman said. “By indicating how to best decrease this area’s vulnerability to fire, the city will take a step towards protecting the priceless European and First Nation heritage holdings, including letters, diaries, Continued on Pg. 3

Some taxpayers may do a double-take but city budget recognized with award KRISTEN DOUGLAS
CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The City of Campbell River has been recognized for putting together one of the most successful budgets in all of North America. The city’s forwardthinking, long-term financial planning efforts earned the city – and its finance team – a Distinguished Budget Presentation award for the city’s 2016-2025 financial plan. The award is given out by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada to encourage best practises and outstanding budget planning. Mayor Andy Adams officially received the plaque on behalf of the
city at Monday’s council meeting and said the award is the highest form of recognition in government budgeting. He said Finance Manager Myriah Foort, with the support of Corporate Services Manager Ron Bowles and Finance Reporting Super visor Alaina Maher, were responsible for the achievement. “The award is in recognition of exemplary practises within the (2016-2025) financial plan under a program created by Ms. Foort and her team called the financial stabilization and resiliency program,” Adams said. The program includes annual budget parameters of a two to 3.5 per cent tax increase to fund the city’s operating bud-
get, capital plan and new or enhanced services. Its purpose is to allow the city to build up its reserve funds in order to provide service enhancements and undertake necessary improvements to aging infrastructure with ongoing stable funding instead of large one-time tax increases. Mayor Adams said it’s been a pleasure to witness council’s ability to transition. “As mayor, I am very pleased and impressed by how our city has responded to the new fiscal reality,” Adams said. “The award acknowledges the progressive changes we have made in moving our financial planning meetings ahead (from February to December), moving from a five to a 10-year
financial plan and establishing a sound reserve policy that meets our capital asset planning needs for the future.” This is the first time since the award was established in 1984 that the City of Campbell River has been a recipient. T h e G ov e r n m e nt Finance Officers Association wrote in a letter to the city that obtaining the award is “a significant achievement and reflects the commitment of the governing body and staff to meeting the highest principles of governmental budgeting.” The letter added that, “we appreciate your participation in this program and we sincerely hope that your example will encourage others in their efforts to achieve
and maintain excellence in governmental budgeting.” Adams said the award reaffirms that the city is on the right track. “To be recognized internationally confirms that our financial processes are well-structured and staff and council is to be commended for ensuring our city is in an excellent financial position,” he said. Council formed the award-winning budget in December of 2015.
manuscripts, photographs, oral interviews, reference library, local newspapers, maps and ephemera files relating to the ethnography, settlement and industrial history of the northern Vancouver Island area.” The fuel management prescription identifies the objectives and strategies required to lower the wildfire hazard in the area. Koopman said the museum and surrounding area was chosen because of its highvisibility. At its Monday meeting, city council lent its support to the grant application for the wildfire plan. Coun. Larry Samson said, however, that the endorsement is contingent on City of Campbell River staff being involved in the formation of the prescription. “I think we need to
be a part of it because it’s going to affect our staff ’s long-term plan for that area and what we see going forward,” Samson said. “So, I think staff has to be somewhat involved.” Coun. Charlie Cornfield agreed, and added that he would also like to see the neighbouring community consulted. “I think it’s especially important for our staff to be involved and also to ensure the public – especially in those areas adjacent to the property – know what’s going to happen, especially if there’s treatment proposed, which could be the removal of some of the trees and brush,” Cornfield said. “So, I think a public involvement process there – engagement – is essential to the project as well.” City Manager Deborah Sargent assured coun-

cil that city staff will be involved and in fact have already played a role. “We have had dialogue with Mr. Koopman to ensure this project would be something that would be a success for the city,” Sargent said. If the grant application is successful, Koopman said the Strathcona Emergency Program will contract Strategic Natural Resources to put together the prescription during field tours with Carihi’s forestry class. “During multiple field days, the students will learn how to identify fuel types, forest health issues and danger trees,” Koopman said. And because funding for a fuel management prescription is only available for city-owned lands, Koopman said the hope is that work in and around the museum will be visible enough
to encourage those on private property to take steps to protect their own land. “A common issue with wildfire hazard locally is the large amount of private land, hence the push within the project is to encourage FireSmart principles on private lands by conducting the prescription in a highly visible location,” Koopman said. “Signage will be placed along the area to inform the public that a fuel management prescription process is taking place.” But that’s just the beginning. Koopman said the fuel management prescription is “the driver and requirement” to apply for a Fuel Management Demonstration Project which would actually put the prescription into practice sometime in the future.

nesses. This idea was developed in response to a rash of thefts in our local area. The Campbell River RCMP says it has been receiving an unusually high amount of shoplift-
ing complaints as well as overnight thefts from businesses over the last several months. “What we have found when speaking to businesses is, they don’t really understand what they can do about the
theft or how best to prevent it. Even businesses that are large enough to hire a loss prevention officer feel there is a need to have everyone on the same page and have a forum to speak with police and educate
KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The owner of a downtown building, that was recently converted into a new medical office, will receive a break on property taxes. Council, at its Monday meeting, approved the incentive which is part of city council’s tax exemption bylaw aimed at revitalizing the downtown core. The initiative applies to targeted areas to entice business owners to invest in the city’s downtown. The most recent application came from the owner of the former Sinnott and Co. law office
building at 480 10th Ave. Kevin Brooks, the city’s development services supervisor, said the owner has transformed the building into a new medical clinic. “This (required) a full remodelling of the interior of the building to establish eight exam rooms and the associated support services,” Brooks said. It is those building renovations that are eligible for the tax exemption. The property and existing building was assessed at $311,000 in 2016. The estimated construction value of the renovation project, however, is $399,000.
Brooks said that based on that more expensive figure and last year’s city property tax rates, that the estimated tax exemption will be $5,020 annually. The city will forfeit that revenue in each of the next five years, which is a total of $25,100. Throughout the fiveyear exemption period, however, the building owner will still pay annual property taxes of $3,910, based on its preconstruction assessed value, Brooks said. The city will collect the full $8,930 worth of property taxes on the property starting in 2022.

Prior to the 10th Avenue site, the most recent development to benefit from the incentive program was the new apartment building in Tyee Plaza that has gone up on the former SuperValu site. In that case, the city is exempting taxes worth $27,446 per year for a five-year total of $137,228.

When ‘for better or for worse’ gets worse FRIDAY, 13, 2017 2017 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || 5 5 FRIDAY, JANUARY JANUARY 13,
January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. One local woman shares her story of watching the advancement of her husband’s disease JOCELYN DOLL
CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
ocelyn Reekie’s husband Bill was 55-years-old when he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. For the last 15 years her role as his caregiver has slowly taken over her role as his wife, though she believes the two go hand in hand. “I took a vow when we got married and I took it pretty seriously, although nobody thinks of the ‘for worse’ part,” Reekie says. She is learning to be more flexible and patient. She has to. Every time she thinks she understands, every time she thinks she’s got a handle on things, “the goal posts change.” “You’re watching this person who was a vibrant person get lost and die, basically, inch my inch, and that’s the hardest part,” she says. “It’s not only your aspirations and dreams that get put on hold, their’s become nonexistent and yet they are still having to live. They are still having to get up every morning and face each day – provided they can get up.” The Reekies are one family of the 25,000 per year in Canada who have a member diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
The disease kills the brain. The Alzheimer’s Society of Canada’s website describes the disease as plaques – numerous dense deposits that become toxic at excessive levels – and tangles, which interfere with vital processes, choking off the living cells. The brain shrinkage continues over time. Eventually a person diagnosed with Alzheimer’s will not be able to communicate verbally or look after themselves. Care is required 24 hours a day. Reekie admits that caring for Bill is taking a toll on her, as well, but she focuses on caring for him with respect and kindness, using the coping mechanisms and tricks she has learned from the monthly caregiver’s support group she attends. Bill goes to an adult care program four days a week, three of which are paid for by Island Health. She pays for the other. In theory this should give Reekie time to work on her writing, but she is losing her ability to focus on her projects because she is too focused on her husband. “Right now I am struggling with trying to find a way to get some soul back,” she says. Despite the hardships, Reekie does not want to put her husband in a care facility, saying she is unable to let go at this point. But she hasn’t written it off yet. “You do get cracks,” she says. “Cracks do develop along the way, and you just think, ah, I didn’t know that about myself, I don’t like that much about myself, but you learn
things. You learn a lot about yourself.” When Reekie first noticed something was off, a couple of years before the diagnosis, she didn’t want to admit what it could be. “It was me who did the denial for a couple of years saying, ‘oh, I think it is just work stress,’ because that’s what I wanted it to be.” The couple lived on Quadra Island at the time, and Bill performed the upkeep on the property. At one point a gate needed to be repaired – and he didn’t do it. The horses kept getting out and Reekie got more and more upset. She finally went out and built the new gate herself. It was only later that she realized he hadn’t done it not because he was being lazy, but because he simply couldn’t. She really knew something was wrong when he started parroting her ideas back to her in conversations. Her husband was an articulate man, with ideas of his own, so for him to repeat an idea she had shared minutes before, as if it was his own and as if it was just occurring to him was strange. All of this, together with finding unpaid bills and getting tax forms returned because of errors, sent Reekie to the doctor. Reekie figures her husband knew, deep down, what was going on. He didn’t argue when the doctors came to his house to assess him. When they told him he had a cognitive impairment that wasn’t anxiety or depression, he accepted that and he

didn’t argue when they sent him to the Alzheimer’s clinic at UBC. At the moment, Bill still remembers his family, and Reekie is grateful for that. But he can’t care for himself at all. It is difficult for Reekie because Bill spent his whole work life as the boss – he used to manage Strathcona Gardens – and now he has people telling him what he can and can’t do all the time. “Bill goes into respite and he knows he is in a lockdown, it just infuriates him, it just frustrates him beyond measure,” Reekie said. “And I don’t blame him.” Reekie sees flashes of the old Bill every so often. He finds joy in
playing with his six-year-old granddaughter, swimming and listening to music. Somehow, he still understands the jokes when they watch The Comedy Network, even though he can no longer follow and contribute to a conversation. Reekie mostly keeps her emotions to herself now, because Bill has his own grief to handle. He can’t think inside himself, let alone outside himself, she said. But when she was standing in the kitchen crying, not that long ago, he put his arm around her and stroked her back and told her everything was going to be okay. “His inner compassion is still there.”

Freshening up city’s bad smell regulations The city’s passage of its new bad odour provisions is a curious case of “good to see you take action but why now and why on this issue?” We all can agree that cracking down on causes of bad smells in the city is a good thing but the speed and decisiveness with which city council took action on this issue is surprising. We’re not saying it’s bad or good at this point but it would be nice if they could move as swiftly on other issues. It was just last April when the complaint that spurred this bylaw was laid. Next thing you know, they’re reworking the public nuisance bylaw under which bad smells linger. The bylaw amendment puts Campbell River in the company of other Island communities by having provisions to crack down on unpleasant odours. The mayor has said it is a work in progress and a good first step. It’s good that the city recognizes this because defining what is considered “malodorous” could be pretty controversial. However, you do have to start somewhere.

Wendy and I stared in horror at the monsters. They were lined up on the television stand. They sneered at us. They should have been thrown out years ago but, no, we kept them. Just in case. We had planned a quiet New Year’s Eve, a retro New Year’s Eve. We actually went to the video store to rent movies. It was to be the perfect evening; a few videos, cozied up on the couch by the fire. Wendy put the first movie in, stepped back and froze. Something was wrong. I came to her side immediately, asking what was wrong. “The remotes,” she said. “Which one do we use?” In our fossilized state, the remote controls had been gladly handled over to our daughter.

HEROES & ZEROS – To the staff of Associated Tire: I want to say thank you so much for getting me back on the road. But most of all, I want to say thank you for not treating me like an old woman who knows nothing about cars.

tears in her eyes. I couldn’t stand the defeat. Then I looked down at her hands and there was a remote, its backing taken off, and the battery compartment was empty. Which of course led us to our next dilemma. AA or AAA? We emptied flashlights and other things that might contain batteries that fit. Nothing. Then it was into the Drawer From Hell. You know that drawer. It contains the things you quite can’t throw out or put in another place. So you put it in the DFH, but only after you push the other stuff aside to make room for it. Amazingly, we found the batteries. We struggled, but eventually got the movie going. We snuggled into the evening and our minds left the day-to-day worrying behind. All was good. We lapsed into that mindnumbing state into which a good or poor movie can put you. And then, “Pee break,” said Wendy. “Put it on pause.” I agreed and pressed what I thought was the pause button. The screen went blue. Our eyes went wide in horror and trepidation. And in that way, we agreed to put 2016 to bed.

The Campbell River Hurricane player, right, fires a shot on the Victoria Ice Hawkes goaltender during Sunday’s female midget-level hockey action at Rod Brind’Amour Arena. The Hurricanes came out on the winning end of a 6-2 score.
Tyees nab silver Wolves dunk The Bantam B Blue Thunder Contracting Ltd. Tyees were over in Richmond just after the Christmas Break. With four games scheduled ahead of the team, knowing they needed to win, the boys played with technique and skill. Keeping the opponents out of their zone, keeping the scoring close but managing
to win. They had a few chippy games with penalties coming from both ends. But the players managed to keep on top of things and kept scoring. The Tyees used their snappers to score from the blue line, they were looking like they might be that undefeated team in the tournament. However, they lost
their Dec. 29 game 6 to 3, but having the great team spirit the Tyees knew they could win the next game giving them the chance to play for gold. The game for gold would prove to be a tough game playing against a strong tier 2 team, the Bantam B Tyees, battled but lost the game 8-1.
AWAY GAME: 1767 Island Hwy, Victoria PUCK DROPS @ 7:00 PM
The Timberline Jr. Boys basketball team defended their home court, beating Alberni District Secondary 42-35 Tuesday. The Wolves jumped out to a 9-0 lead and maintained control for the rest of the game. It was a solid effort from the entire squad with some stifling defence at key moments. Point guard Brodie Comerford led all scorers with 16. The Wolves’ next home game is Jan. 17 vs. Powell River.

Fishing Corner with
A number of Campbell River anglers enjoy fishing Echo Lake for a number of reasons. Stocked trout are catchable and the lake is a short drive – about 20 minutes on Highway 28 heading toward Gold River. Since I moved to Campbell in 2010, this is the first time I have seen the lake covered in ice. Will I go ice fishing? The answer is no! I don’t have an ice auger and while the ice is thick enough to skate on, I will wait for warmer weather to clear the ice and get out trout fishing. We used to ice fish in Alberta and Saskatchewan where the ice thickness is up to the handle and here in Campbell River an axe might do the trick to cut the hole but you get a shower at the same time. Or you can use a chainsaw. There are sections of Echo that are deep and if you get a hole dug, you can use a hook baited with shrimp or a worm. A small jig with purple hair fished at the bottom gets results and Panther Martin lures worked as well in upper elevation lakes during winter. Two smaller lakes are located in the area and they are Little Echo and
Jane Curell first time fly tyer at Campbell River Library Mirror, which are both shallow lakes and are frozen over. Echo has no overnight winter or summer camping but some people tend to stay over and
camp a few days especially on the highway side of the lake. Echo Lake is day use only on private property developed by the Campbell River District Fish and Wildlife Association and the help of Timberwest with funding assistance by Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. and Habitat Conservation Trout Foundation. During the winter months, people have been throwing beer and pop cans in the snow and leaving garbage and used toilet paper in the bush. I will be at the Campbell River Library this Sunday with another session of fly tying for beginners its open to all and is free. We have the Multipurpose room booked starting at 1 p.m. and books will be on display. If you ever wanted to know more about tying flies come down and participate. This week a fly pattern that is easy to tie and is very good in catching trout will be shown to all attending and I will have extra flies to give away. Tyee Marine has donated some prizes and the people who have joined us before are welcome back. The next beginners session will be at Tyee Marine Campbell River Sunday, Jan. 22 at 1 p.m.

RIDE James Durand
J.R. RARDON/BLACK PRESS
Chenoa sometimes accuses me of trying to be too efficient. The fact that I don’t think this is possible might indicate she has a point. Maybe it’s my racing background, or maybe it’s being a business owner, I don’t know, but I look at everything I do and always wonder if I can do it better, make it simpler and complete it faster. My brain works in mysterious ways. Riding a DH race, putting gas in the car or repairing bikes, it’s about doing it perfectly and…efficiently. Even as I write this, I am eating lunch and stretching my legs out. I’m hoping that if I save enough time by multi-tasking I can squeeze in a ride tonight instead of working or eating, and I’ll be limber. Being that it’s mid-January, it’s a bit slow in the bike world. There isn’t as much riding, the shop is slower than normal and there is a bit of time to dream about the arrival of spring. Imagine that first true spring day; sunny, warm, perfect trail conditions
pension overhauled before lunch. Now your bike is in the workstand for a week while your buddies are off riding without you. If only you had been a little more efficient back in January when the weather sucked. So, is this the year you get your bike ready early and take advantage of the best riding season ever, or do you line up at the shop again on that first great day, wondering why you didn’t do this back in January when you were snowed in? I’m James Durand and I’m Goin’…to work on my bikes, just in case spring comes early!

Midget A Tyees find gold in bronze medal win at Kamloops tourney
he Strathcona Toyota Midget A Tyees, evolving as a team over the course of an eventful season, boarded a bus this past weekend for the annual Kamloops Tier II Tournament. Previous editions of this team have struggled here, and the Tyees were able to measure themselves against Provincial championship caliber teams again this year. But this time things were different. The Tyees, who have lost two veteran players over the past two months, have been molded into a structured, puck possession team with balanced lines and discipline, with coaching that has stressed teamwork over individualism and structure over aggression. This patient approach from coaches Jim McLean and Bill Humphreys was finally rewarded in the frigid interior. Game one at memorial arena in Kamloops saw Campbell River face off against Prince George, and right off the draw there was a clear contrast between the teams. Prince George dumped
and chased, flew around the ice looking for hits, pressured the puck and drove the net. The Tyees held the puck, retreated when they could not advance, passed D to D calmly looking for open lanes, took hits to make plays and made plays when available. They were pressured into mistakes at times, but led by stalwart defender Doug Campbell they kept the shots from the outside and despite being outshot 20-4 in the first period led 1-0. Goaltender Antoine Minfray was spectacular in this game, and was named MVP. After absorbing the pressure, the Tyees struck fast: Luke Lund took a Campbell pass on a power play, off a Liam Rivett cross ice relay and scored on a quick shot. The whole play from the far boards in the D zone to the back of the net probably took 5 seconds and likely turned the game. Tournament standout Jaxon Ward scored an equally lightning quick goal in the second period, stealing the puck from the Prince George
defence and chipping the goalie short side. Lund finished the scoring from a hustling Ethan Mainprize after Campbell threw a punctuating open ice hit to shut Prince George down: 3-2 Tyees. Game two featured Vernon, a team every bit as aggressive and more talented than the Tyees’ first opponent. Dominik Bellefleur once again gave his team superb goaltending while Seth Parker moved up to play centre and was brilliant, scoring once and dominating possession on his shifts. Cole Devlin assisted on Parker’s goal and also had a strong game. MVP Lund went end to end through Vernon’s defence to once again open the scoring and was on the ice again for the winner. Captain Owen Boyd, Lund and sniper Jake Hartley were thrown together in the final minute of a 2-2 game and Boyd produced the dramatic winner with .3 seconds on the clock! Game three was a tamer affair, as private hockey academy OHA was already eliminated
and Campbell River assured of first place in their division. The Tyees settled for a 1-1 draw, with the only goal coming from Parker, tipping in a Doug Campbell blast after the Tyees trailed for two periods. Rookie Clinton Nelson was MVP, growing by bounds through the tournament defensively, adding an assist on the winning goal in game 2. The Tyees’ semi-final, against eventual gold medal winners Williams Lake, a strong entry to last year’s provincials, was disappointing. Ward and Lund scored, and Campbell was MVP, but the big ice of the 7500 seat Sandman Center gave the fast high pressure, bench shortening interior squad an advantage that the Tyees could not handle on that day. Rookie Bryce Narhi had two assists capping an excellent tournament, and Devlin added another. Campbell River was third, in the end. But they showed cohesion, respect for their system and gelled as a team. And that’s gold.

Seals captain named to allstar team at Mac’s tournament JOCELYN DOLL CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
The Vancouver Island Seals captain, Maryna Macdonald, 16, was named to the first allstar team at the boxing day Mac’s tournament in Calgary. “I couldn’t have done it without my team for sure,” she said. “The way the team played and the way we came together throughout the whole tournament it was really a whole team effort.” The Seals met some tough teams in the tournament, but Maryna said they gave them a run for their money. “We did a lot better than we thought we would,” she said. “When you play teams that push you, it pushed you to just keep getting better.” Macdonald lives in Port Alberni for most of the year, but during the hockey season she lives in Campbell River. The Seals are on the ice every morning, and doing dry land training three evenings a week as well as practicing in Nanaimo with the entire team on Wednesday eveT:4.33” nings. “The anytime we have outside of my team I spend on homework,” Macdonald said. “ It’s kind of just school and T:4.33” hockey and eating and
that’s kind of my schedule.” Macdonald started playing hockey when her family moved to Port Alberni. In the town where she grew up there was no arena, but, after watching her older cousin on the ice, she dreamed of playing. “The day we move to Port Alberni, that’s when I stepped on the ice, we hadn’t even moved into our house yet,” she said. She made her way through Minor Hockey playing on boys rep teams, full contact. “I think it really pushed me, it made me stronger in the girls game for sure,” she said. “I was able to take the body a little more, take the little hits and stuff. It made me quick and fast, it helped me improve my game because you are competing with strong big guys. It helped my game a lot.” Her first year playing on a girls team was her first year playing for the Seals-last season. So far Macdonald’s hard work is paying off. After four rounds of tryouts, she represented Team B.C. at the U18 Women’s Nat iona ls Tournament in Regina in November. The team brought home the bronze medal. Macdonald said it was an amazing experience and she hopes to T:4.33”

Though she looks up to the women playing for Team Canada, her real inspiration comes from him. “He’s been such a great role model for me just because he pushes himself so hard and he has such a good drive and it just makes me want to be like him, to aspire to be always pushing yourself to your limits and never looking back kind of thing,” she said.

“It was pretty obvious to me that that was where I wanted to go,” she said. She believes it will be a great opportunity for her academically, as well as for her hockey career-the head coach at Harvard also coaches the USA Women’s hockey team. Though Macdonald has committed to Harvard, there is no time to rest. She has already taken the SAT once, and she is taking it again later this month. “They kind of just want me to take it as many times as I can so I am

Despite only being in Grade 11, Macdonald already has the next step of her hockey, and academic, career planned out. Harvard scouted her last year while the team was playing at a tournament in Washington DC. She said the team did unbelievable in the tournament, finishing second, and that was when the scouts approached her, “You played great and we want to see you at our school.” Macdonald flew out to see the campus in April, and she fell in love.

Intense blueberry and black fruit aromas with a hint of cedar and nuances of white pepper precede seriously ripe flavours that echo the aromas. The fine dark red deposit at the bottom of the last couple of glasses reflects how rich the wine was when bottled. The Toro region is in the northwest corner of Spain.

with subtle spicy notes of cumin and coriander. This is old fashioned Spanish winemaking at its best! Renowned for their Sauvignon Blancs and Pinot Noirs, we don’t often think of New Zealand’s twin islands as a source of rich, ripe reds A blend of 88 per cent Merlot and 12 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon, New Zealand’s Sacred Hills Hawkes Bay Merlot Cabernet (847996) $17.99 has oodles of dusky ripe plum and red berry flavours with spicy hints of pepper and nuances of nuttiness. From the Alto Adige in northwestern Italy’s Sud Tyrol the Schiava grape is known as Vernatsch or Trollinger in Germany. Relatively light for a rich red, Schiava has sweet strawberry aromas tweaked with spicy notes of liquorice and pepper. Tasted blind, it is remarkably reminiscent of some ripe Spanish Garnachas. From vines over 100 years old Galea Schiava
(43356) $27.55 is as light coloured as some much more delicate Pinot Noirs. Despite that, it offers aromas and flavours of jammy over-ripe strawberries and plums with a sprinkling of ‘forest floor’ earthiness and a peppery minerality in the finish. Wakefields’s Jaraman wines blend fruit from two iconic wine regions in Australia. The individual regional characteristics shine through, while creating an entic-
ing and intriguing wine that is – like so many blends - so much more than merely the sum of its parts. Overwhelmingly rich but still perfectly balanced, Wakefield Jaraman Shiraz (695122) $33.99 from grapes grown in the Clare Valley and McLaren Vale. Aromas of black and blue berry fruit lead into fleshy flavours of ripe plums and blackberries. Complex undernotes of cloves and cinnamon add interest to the sturdy finish of this heartwarming and ‘chewy’ red wine.

At CRMHA, we aim to provide a hockey development program for young players to grow, learn, compete in the sport and have fun. But minor hockey provides so much more - a sense of community, friendship and the life skills of dedication, sportsmanship and teamwork. On behalf of the CRMHA Executive, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our outstanding group of volunteers, players, oﬃcials and sponsors and to express how proud we are to host minor hockey in Campbell River.

Reaching out for help Local support society helps men dealing with trauma and abuse with no government funding MIKE DAVIES CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
There are many government funded – or subsidized – programs out there that help women who are being abused or dealing with the trauma associated with abuse. And rightly so. But the same cannot be said about services for men, according to the North Island Survivors’ Healing Society, which is trying to change that. The local society has been offering subsidized counselling services for men – without government funding – for 14 years. “Sadly, there are a large number of women who have been abused,” says Janet Carmichael, executive director of the society. “But there are also a large number of men who have been abused – it’s just a lesser-told story. “The vision of the founders of the society, when it started, was that there would be services available for both,” Carmichael adds. “But for a while, it was only for women, because that
was all the funding that was available. “S o we’d receive phone calls from men who were looking for service for themselves, or from the hospital or other service providers in the community asking ‘do you do this or know anyone who does this?’ and we’d have to give them names of people in private practice, because that was really the only solution,” she continues. “But that is cost prohibitive for a lot of people.” So they thought, “we’ve got some extra money saved because we’d done some fundraising, so we decided that for one year, we could offer a spot to one man, and we started there.” They then managed to secure a gaming grant and some money from the United Way to increase the amount of time they could offer to men at $25 per session, instead of the $100 or more it would cost through a private practice. “We’re doing what we can. Even at $25, there are some who still can’t afford it,” Carmichael admits, “but at least it’s within range of some men who need the services, so more men have access than would otherwise. “There are only about eight organizations in the province that run programs like ours,” Carmichael continues. “There’s no regular funding for this, either provincial or federal,
but there are little pockets of us here and there where people have just felt really strongly about this and decided to try and make it work.” What they do is offer subsidized counselling services from registered clinical counsellors like Celia Laval. “A lot of men we see haven’t been victims of violence as adults,” Laval says. “Some have, for sure, but oftentimes it’s the childhood scars that we see. So, it’s grown men that were victims of physical or sexual physical abuse as children that we see most. But, yes, we also see men who are suffering violence or harassment from women as adults and that trauma can really destroy things for them in their ability to cope.” Laval says men suffering from trauma can have difficulty with anger management issues; they definitely suffer in their relationships – including in their ability to form positive ones – or they may have confidence or anxiety issues. “It could manifest as obsessive compulsive issues, the inability to trust people or the inability to form good relationships,” she says. “I see a lot of guys who are very isolated because, in part, the notions of masculinity that a lot of guys have make it difficult for them to heal because they feel like they’re supposed to be tough and they’re not sup-
posed to be vulnerable. So it’s very hard for them to reach out.” It’s become easier, Carmichael says, for men to ask for help, though, thanks to an increasing number of voices raising the issue in a very public way. “I think that makes it safer for the average guy to come forward and say they need help when there’s a big-name hockey player that comes forward or we start hearing about big scandals being brought to light,” Carmichael s ays. “I’m a lways encouraged when a celebrity comes forward with a story, because people pay attention to celebrities and they move the needle and take the lid off the subject, but I wish that didn’t need to happen for men to know that reaching out for help isn’t a sign of weakness.” One reason men feel it’s a sign of weakness to reach out for help, Carmichael says, is because they think, “other men can just cope, so I should be able to, too.” But there’s no formula for who suffers trauma or how it affects them. “We see men of all ages and backgrounds,” Carmichael says. “We’ve had everyone from the high school dropout to the university graduate come through the door. Caucasians, mainly, but also First Nations. People who are retired, people working in highfunctioning jobs and people who are unemployed. It really runs the whole gamut.”
MIKE DAVIES/CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
Registered clinical counselor Celia Laval says most of the men she sees at the North Island Survivors’ Healing Society are coming to terms with childhood trauma and abuse, but there are those who experience it as adults, as well. The organization offers counseling for men at $25 per session to make it available to men who can’t afford to go to a private practice.
Most importantly, Carmichael and Laval agree, is for men – no matter their background or circumstance – to realize that it’s okay to feel. And it’s okay to ask for help with those feel-
ings. “Men are human, too,” Laval says. “They can be vulnerable and they can be abused – and they should realize that they can reach out for support and be given that support. It’s not a weak-

ness to ask for help. It’s a strength, as far as I’m concerned.” For more information on the North Island Sur vivors’ Healing Society, head online to nishs.ca or give them a call at 250-287-3325.

Emergency responders struggling with posttraumatic stress disorder and other mental illness will soon have access to treatment options from the comfort of a scenic riverfront pasture. Honour Ranch is being developed as a refuge offering mental health treatment and healing and respite for first responders and military personnel who are suffering from the effects of operational stress injuries. The ranch is a 25-acre pasture located on the North Thompson River in Kamloops but it will be available to emer-
gency responders across the province. At its Monday meeting, Campbell River city council recommended city staff ensure that all local emergency responders have access to the new resource. “If we could ask staff to forward this on to our local emergency service providers – search and rescue, fire, police, BC Ambulance – it would be much appreciated.” Honour Ranch follows the success of Honour House, a place in New Westminster that offers free accommodation and support to emergency and military personnel and their families who have to travel to Metro Vancouver for health
care. The house was founded by Hon. Lt. Col. Allan De Genova, who started the facility after learning about the personal and financial challenges those on the front lines have endured in trying to access health care, as well as complications, such as suicide, that arise when conditions go untreated. De Genova said Honour Ranch is building on that success and offers one-day and longer-term mental health treatment programs in a serene setting. “Therapy programs will be in place in the late spring of next year and we’ll be connecting with emergency services and armed forces execu-
tives in Campbell River and the surrounding area shortly to find out how we can help their members,” De Genova wrote in a letter to city council. “With your leadership, we will be able to support the men and women in uniform in your community who put their lives on the line to keep us safe, unconditionally each and every day.” The ranch is expected to provide a range of therapies on site that are adaptable to each individual. De Genova is also hoping that the ranch will help reduce the stigma around mental disorders that often hinders people from seeking out treatment.

At the ranch, treatment could involve simply going camping as a family by the river or going out in a boat and fishing – just getting back to nature and escaping from the daily grind. On Monday, Coun. Charlie Cornfield suggested that the city’s human resource (HR) staffers be notified about Honour Ranch and the services it’s expected to offer. “I think it’s important that HR be well aware of the resources out there if they’re not already,” Cornfield said. City Manager Deborah Sargent said De Genova’s letter could “certainly” be referred to the appropriate city staff.

Ski club in gear
It has been a stellar start to the season on Mount Washington which means a stellar season start for the Mount Washington Ski Club (MWSC) too. Entering into their 36th year as a club, they have full registration in their Nancy Greene Program and a compliment of coaches were set to go for their first day on Jan 7. The U12/14/16 team has already been shredding it up during a fourday Christmas camp. Whether you are a new young skier and are looking for an organized program to learn the basics in a small group, family club-like setting taught by certified CSIA /CSCF Coaches, or a more seasoned skier who is looking for a group to shred it up on the mountain , the MWSC has something for every ages and skill level. The Rio Tinto Nancy Greene Ski league (U10/U12) program philosophy is to encourage participation, interaction and the development of technical skills in an exciting
and motivating atmosphere without the pressures of intense competition. Coaches follow the Alpine Canada snow stars program- a seven step skills progression specially designed for children of this age and Skill Awards program. Our programs range in age from 4-11, All Mountain Program, U12, U14 and U16 race programs all the way up to our FIS race team. The Mount Washington Ski Club has a long history on the mountain and is known for supporting Allison Forsythe, National Ski Team Champion and Olympian and Matt Leduc – Canadian National Skier X Team Member in their early years of racing. Already on their club calendar for Jan. 20- 22 they will be hosting a Coast Zone Giant Slalom Race on the Sunrise Chair with over 100 athletes, coaches and families heading to Mount Washington take in the incredible speed of the Allison Forsythe GS run and the scenic views. A
race like this requires over 100 volunteers and so if you are interested in helping out – we will buy you lunch and provide you with a lift ticket. No experience necessary – contact Chief of Race Dean Nilsen at d.nilsen@ shaw.ca.

Local artists share their passion for nature Walls of the Tidemark Gallery shared by Jill Paris Rody and Carole Goodwin through February MIKE DAVIES CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
he kickoff of the winter season of the Campbell River Festival of Films will be accompanied by the reception for local artists Jill Paris Rody and Carole Goodwin’s new show, A Passion for Nature in the Tidemark Gallery Jan. 24. Paris Rody and Goodwin are both long-time Campbell River fixtures in the local art scene and their joint exhibition showcases their love for the local landscape and the wonders of the natural world that surround us here on the mid-north Island. “The diverse beauty of the island has given me a deep appreciation for
the bright colours and magnificent scenery that I am privileged to see every day,” Goodwin says. “When I paint I look for a spiritual connection to my subject, as I desire to feel the oneness of nature and acknowledge my connectedness to it. Sometimes I do this through writing or meditative stillness, which greatly adds to the emotional inspiration for my artwork.” Goodwin says her work used to be more traditional, but she has begun exploring some new ideas of late, and is excited to show those off at the Tidemark. “My work has evolved over time,” she says, “and today it is mostly experimental, using mixed media and acrylic. Collage, gels and other mediums are also used to create texture, which is then covered with gold or silver leaf. This gives the piece a reflective light source for the many transparent glazes used in each area of the painting.” Paris Rody, meanwhile, takes a more traditional approach in the work she’ll be showing.
“The cycles of the seasons – such as the refreshing yellow-green of new growth on an old maple tree -catch my attention and portray a redemptive quality,” Paris Rody says. “My work is to present this and other ‘stories’ in texture, light and colour, using a minimalist palette of rich combinations.” Drawing her artistic influence from painters like Norman Rockwell and Andrew Wyeth in her youth instilled a need in her to imbue her work with emotion, Paris Rody says, which led her to the work of the Group of Seven and Tom Thompson, whose work are very evident in their influence on her – as visitors to the Tidemark over the next while will surely see. A Passion for Nature is on now and runs through the end of February. A reception for the show will be held before the CRFF screening of The Eagle Huntress on Jan. 24, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Finger foods and nonMIRROR FILE PHOTO alcoholic punch will be served and Carole Goodwin (left) and Jill Paris Rody will be sharing the the Tidemark concession will also be walls of the Tidemark Gallery with their joint exhibition, A Pasopen during the reception. sion for Nature, on now through the end of February.
Celebrate Robbie Burns in Merville with Fiddlejam Funtime Fiddlers
nce again, in a rollicking tribute to the spirit of Robbie Burns, on Saturday, Jan. 21, the Fiddlejam Funtime Fiddlers will be playing for the dancing pleasure of all at the Big Yellow Merville Hall. Bare legged, kilted Scotsmen appreciate the fiddle as being the musical instrument of choice for dances and the local Fiddlejam Fiddlers know how to shake their thistles and spurtles to get the dancers up onto the floor. You’ll step lively as Celtic caller June Cannon guides the dancers with her clear and clever instructions, always with an eye on those who might need a bit more guid-
ance. This dance will be a noble workout where nobody gets left behind and everyone will have a good time. The castle doors will open at 7 p.m. and we generally have a complimentary contra dance workshop right before the dance to loosen you up and to prepare you for the spins and lively steps of the Virginia Reel and the Gay Gordon. The dancing begins at 7:30 p.m. and families and single dancers are very welcome. Singles can pair up with anyone during the contras and our contra sets last about 15 to 20 minutes. To strut their musical versatility, they also play old time waltzes and reels, jigs and swings,

Going gaga for gaga ball at L’École Mer-et-Montagne with Windsor Plywood about the idea, and they said they’d be happy to donate for it,” Vézina says, in a heavy French accent. He’s the directeur of a French school, after all. “And then McGrath Contracting said they would make the metal brackets for it – online they are very expensive to buy but they said they would do that for you for the school.” From there they just needed a bit of paint, a few bolts and a place to put it. Rob Fuccenecco at The Mortgage Centre volunteered to fund the

Last September, Dominique Desmoreaux, a substitute teacher and parent of a child at L’École Mer-et-Montagne came to school principal Marc Vézina with an idea. “He had been in Europe somewhere, I guess, and brought this to me,” Vézina says. What “this” is was the idea to install a gaga ball pit in the schoolyard. “He had been doing some renovation at his home and was talking

played in an octagonal pit a few feet high. There are several variations of the rules, but, in general, the idea is to start with everyone touching the wall, the ball is set in the centre of the pit, and the game commences. The ball is slapped with an open hand, aimed at another player’s legs. If a player is touched by the ball at the knee or below, that player is out. The last player standing is the winner, the game ends and everyone comes back over the sides to start again. Players can also be eliminated by being the last one to touch the ball if the ball leaves the pit, the last player to touch it is “out.” Another variation of the game – which the students of Mer-et-Montagne have been playing at recess, Vézina says, is for a certain number of students to be in the pit to start the game, with a lineup of children wait-

Gaga ball, Vézina says, is an excellent game for school kids for a couple of reasons. First, it’s another outside activity that takes them out from within the confines of the school to get some exercise. Second, it’s something everyone can play at the same time, no matter their age. “They can play kindergartener together with the Grade 8,” Vézina says. “Taller you are, the more chance you have of being eliminated, you see? Because if you’re tall, you have to bend over to protect, but when you’re short, you can protect yourself easier.” Vé zina s ays t he y haven’t decided whether they will put it away for storage in the summer months or just leave it up for everyone to enjoy year-round. “We would just need to find somewhere to put the wood and brackets,” Vézina says, “but we could do that. I’m not sure, yet. Probably we will just leave it up.”

Campbell River dive school offers ‘the ultimate’ diving course
he Big Kahuna, the Full Monty, the big ticket, the real deal – however you want to put it, a new course being offered by Campbell River’s DiveSafe International is said to be the ultimate commercial diving training program. For the first time ever, DiveSafe International is offering an Unre-
stricted Surface Supply (50 metre) course, set to begin Jan. 23. “We’re super excited to get this new training program going,” says Kelly Korol, DiveSafe International’s owner and Director of Training. “It truly is the ultimate dive course. For anyone who has dreamed of becoming a commercial diver, this is

the course to take – we cover it all!” Unrestricted Surface Supply certification is recognized globally for both off-shore and in-shore diving work. The “50-metre ticket” includes deep-water training, construction, underwater welding and hyperbaric chamber operations, as well as inclass theory lessons. DiveSafe International’s new Unrestricted Surface Supply dive course will prepare graduates for a wide variety of in-demand underwater careers.
Upon completion of the 20-week course, graduates will be certified to find employment in a wide range of sectors. This training, Korol says, will give the new divers many more job options than other, less comprehensive, dive courses. “Aside from the typical West Coast work in seafood harvest and aquaculture, this ticket broadens employment opportunities to a vari-
ety of other industries, like underwater engineering inspections, archeological investigation, police operations, underwater film production and emergency services rescue operations, offshore oilfield, burning, underwater welding, jetting and other construction.” DiveSafe International has been offering professional diving instruction out of Campbell River since 2002.
Korol notes that the new Unrestricted Surface Supply course is just one more thing differentiating DiveSafe from other schools. “We’re home to some amazing ocean divetraining sites and we have an awesome fleet that even includes a refurbished barge to take us out to these truly world-class dive sites,” explains Korol. “Our instructors are also world class, and now
with this new course we feel we’ve really raised the bar in terms of offering everything the modern commercial diver requires.” The 20-week course costs $19,400 and runs Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about the program, including tuition and prerequisites, call DiveSafe International at 250-2873837 or email peter@ divesafe.com.
the housing market to weaken somewhat this year. “Although B CREA anticipates that less robust economic conditions combined with government policy constraints will slow housing demand by more than 15 per cent in 2017, unit sales should remain well above the 10-year average of 85,000,” says Cameron Muir, BCREA Chief
Economist. “Sales in the VIREB area this year will likely trend lower than in 2016, but this is merely the market returning to more normal levels from last year’s unprecedented sales activity.” As she has stated in previous media releases, Margo Hoffman, 2016 VIREB President, reaffirms that housing sales in the VIREB area would be higher if there were
more homes available. Seasonal market conditions can account for some of December’s decreased sales, but there are still plenty of buyers, and multiple offers are the norm when listings hit the market. “We’ve been in a sellers’ market for several months now, and buyers are snapping up available properties,” says Hoffman. “But homeown-
ers need to realize these market conditions won’t last forever, so if you’ve been thinking of selling, it’s a perfect time to do so.” Hoffman adds that connecting with a local Realtor is especially crucial in a competitive housing market. Realtors have specialized knowledge of their communities and are equipped
VIREB: 2016 was a banner year for real estate Sales of single-family homes in December were lower than the previous month, reflecting seasonal market conditions and inventory challenges, but annual sales volume rose 24 per cent over 2015. A total of 6,063 single-family homes sold on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in 2016, an increase of 24 per cent over the 4,885
sales recorded the previous year. VIREB’s housing market hit its peak in May, which saw 771 sales. The average sale price of a single-family home board wide increased by 13 per cent in 2016 to reach $404,695. Inventory of single-family homes dipped to 859 in December, a historic low, down 17 per cent from November and 37 per cent from
one year ago. This figure is the lowest recorded in the VIREB area since the board began tracking inventory in 1999. The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) notes that housing demand throughout 2016 was driven by a provincial economy that outperformed the rest of the country. However, BCREA does expect

A look back at NIC in 2016 W

It was a milestone year as the 40th graduation class donned caps and gowns, marking 155,000 students across 80,000 square kilometres that have taken a course or improved their lives through education at NIC. “We are very proud of all the students graduating this year,” said NIC President, John Bowman last June. “Seeing them accomplish their goals is extremely rewarding and inspiring for friends, family and the entire college community.” Here are a few highlights from 2016: n January 2016: NIC’s collaboration with 35 First Nations partners was been singled out
MANAGING YOUR MONEY Don’t marry your3x8 wedding day plans
You and your partner have spent months planning the perfect wedding. But there’s at least a chance it won’t be – perfect, that is. Realities often necessitate alterations to even the most detailed plans -- especially when it comes to grand plans for a wedding day. Murphy’s Law has it that whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. And that definitely applies to weddings.
• A server drops your wedding cake and instead of cutting it, you end up having to scrape it off the floor. • The groomsman is late for the ceremony because his car broke down.
And plan beyond your wedding, too. Begin with the everyday basics, such as who will manage day-today finances — pay the bills and so on — and who will manage your overall financial affairs. Decide if it’s best to maintain separate bank accounts, credit cards and investments or to merge some or all of these to eliminate duplication and enhance financial benefits. Each of you should disclose assets, financial commitments (such as loans) and credit history. If either of you will be bringing personal assets to the union — a car or home, for example — decide whether to keep them or sell them. Make all your decisions with a clear understanding of the tax and legal implications, especially if you are bringing significant assets into the marriage.
• Your beautiful garden wedding is forced indoors by a sudden rain storm. And speaking of taxes: Although couples file • On the dance floor, a guest steps on the train of separate individual tax returns, you should your very expensive wedding dress – rip!

YOU ASKED: Are BC Building Code requirements related to ﬁre response time changing? BC Building Code requirements for construction outside the Fire Department’s 10-minute response time remain in eﬀect and unchanged. With the 2017 budget supporting two new ﬁreﬁghters stationed at Fire Hall No. 2 in Willow Point, the City has received inquiries about the potential impact to Fire Department response times in south Campbell River. For changes to the BC Building Code requirements to occur, the Fire Department would have to collect and provide data that demonstrates response time with new staﬀ in place. New data will not be available for at least a year.

Simply by shopping your mortgage with a qualified mortgage professional, you can access the banks as well as other lenders that you may not have considered, but which can offer interest rate specials or other attractive terms.

The Intelligence of Trees – Part 2 of 4
13, 2017 2017 || CAMPBELL CAMPBELL RIVER RIVER MIRROR MIRROR || 53 53 FRIDAY, JANUARY 13,
it’s not surprising we haven’t been able to understand them. Because trees are “rooted” in one place, they have devised and used their own ways to relate and communicate with their surroundings —ways that happen to be outside the range of our usual perception. And why should they behave as we do? This expectation is one of our major shortcomings. Children, with their special innocent wisdom, recognize and accept trees as living beings with purposeful and deliberate behaviour, and so do Peter
Wholleben and Suzanne with sugars and nutriSimard. In the beech ents provided by their forests of Germany, parents through interWholleben connectSHADES ing root documents parstructures ent trees — “nurs“nursing” ing their their offbabies,” spring. is WholThe young leben’s saplings, expression. attempting When the to grow parents beneath eventually the shaddie, the owed saplings canopy are ready with 97 per to succeed cent of the them as sunlight strong and already consumed, are able inheritors of the kept alive and healthy available space in the
OF GREEN Ray Grigg
A different scale of time accounts for one of the reasons we have difficulty understanding the intelligence of trees. We interpret events with reference to our human sense of normal. Comparatively, trees seem to respond slowly, their life cycles sometimes approaching millennia — in the words of the German forester, Peter Wholleben, they “exceed the human attention span.” They feed on the raw material we call dirt and produce their energy by the perplexing process of photosynthesis. As very different creatures,
forest. One tree “caring” for another makes scientists feel uncomfortable, particularly when the paradigm of competitiveness is the one we have been using to explain how trees and forests grow. But Wholleben has evidence of trees sharing space and nutrition, of neighbours feeding sugars to nearby stumps to keep them alive. In a beech forest he has examined the living stump of a tree that fell about 400 years ago, still alive from the sustenance provided from nearby trees. And it’s possible to find occasional fir stumps, fed for
so long by neighbouring trees, that the bark has grown up over the severed wood to heal the wound — the base of the amputated tree is still alive without a functioning trunk, branches or needles. Science, of course, as part of its effort to be objective, is averse to using words that have an emotional connotation. The behaviour in one category of living beings, particularly anthropomorphizing, is not to be confused with the behaviour in another. So our sensitive response to touch, sunlight, heat and water
becomes, for trees, the technical terms of thigmotropism, heliotropism, thermotropism and hydrotropism. But a response is a response. And behind the different words is the implication that trees have some kind of sentience or awareness. This, of course, is the point being made by Wholleben and Simard. Wholleben is not some unrealistic dreamer. He conducted about 25 years of scientific research in Canada’s West Coast rainforests, confirming the claims in his book, The Hidden Life of Trees.

When is it time to see a counsellor?
There’s always help available. Take the first step. Talk to Fran.
Frances Ferguson, M.Ed. Registered Clinical Counsellor www.talktofran.com
Another good time to see a counsellor is when you’re feeling stuck – when you’ve tried what you know and still aren’t getting anywhere. Couples benefit from couples counselling when they’re struggling and don’t know what to do to keep the love alive. Reaching for help early is always advisable. The longer problems aren’t dealt with, the harder they are to change.

Although you do not want to put your running routine on hold, it is a good idea to consider your risks before heading out the door. Ensure your running trails are clear of ice Natalia Brown, and delay your run during changing Physiotherapist weather conditions. If you jog in the evenings, select well-lit paths or invest in a comfortable headlamp.Wear reflective gear to avoid getting hit by a car and put on well-fitting shoes with good grip. Save enough strength to come back and consider doing several smaller loops instead of one big one. Stretching should always be an important part of your running routine.

It is generally agreed that gold was first used in dentistry August over 2,500 years ago. John Brantvein Historians refer to a Robilliard & Blue burial shaft in Giza and in ancient China. Gold leaf was used in fillings in 1483, but only the wealthiest patients could afford this time consuming procedure. Today about 1% of the world gold production is used in dentistry, compared to 52% being used in the jewelry industry. If you have a gold crown removed, your dentist will return it to you. Dental gold is a high grade alloy and valuable, so bring August your old crown and he will pay you top dollar for it. They don’t make very attractive pendants I’m afraid!

Can cold sores caused by the herplex simplex virus be passed on to another person once you are infected?
Make better hearing your New Year’s resolution.
Yes. To keep from spreading the virus: • Do not have skin-to-skin contact with young children and people who are immunocompromised. • Do not share forks, spoons, drinking containers, razors, or towels. • Wash hands with soap and water.
Did you know that people wait an average of seven years before they deal with hearing loss? In that time, our brains can get out of practice processing the sounds that are no longer being heard. This is why we recommend that Olga Stolbova, RHIP people speak to a professional about hearing loss sooner rather than later, before it affects one’s lifestyle or ability to communicate with others.
Victor Choo Pharmacist/Owner
Take care of a cold sore by: • Keep the cold core clean by gently washing with mild soap and water. • Putting an ointment on the cold sore should help from cracking. For more information on the prevention and treatments for cold sores, come by to your Peoples Drug Mart Pharmacy and talk to your pharmacist for available options.

BOOMERS & Beyond Senior dating trends and tips The first Baby Boomers turned 70 in 2016, and this generation remains one of the most influential in the country and around the world. Scores of products and services are now marketed to seniors, many of whom remain as active and socially aware as they were in their youth.
Singles age 50 and older are increasingly relying on online dating sites and other methods to find love and companionship. Dating is no longer kids' play, and those who have been away from dating for some time may have to get reacquainted with the process in the modern age.
One aspect of senior marketing that is booming is dating and relationship products.
Consider online dating Research found one in two divorced or widowed seniors had
remarried in 2013, and that trend figures to continue. Many seniors are using online dating sites to find their new matches. While websites geared to dating make it easier to get in touch with fellow singles, the relative anonymity of the process can make it challenging to separate the truth from some self-promoting hype on dating profiles. Begin by relying
on dating sites that have been tested and recommended. Popular sites Match.com eHarmony.com boast high percentages of users age 50 and up. Even after thorough consideration and conversation, online daters should exercise caution when meeting someone online and then in person. Profiles aren't always what they seem, and it's easier to fudge the facts when
initiating contact over the Internet. Keep an open mind It's easy to be preoccupied with the rigors of being an older adult and the responsibilities that still may rest on your shoulders. Part of the fun of dating when you were young likely had to do with throwing caution to the wind. But some of those same carefree aspects remain true
whether you're dating at 17 or at 57. Laughter, fun, spontaneity, and the chance for some adventure are still the keys to making memorable dates. Sometimes it's who you know The old adage of it's "who you know" and not "what you know" is applicable to dating. If you are ready to jump into the dating world again, ask your close friends or family
members if they know anyone who might be in a similar situation. Taking another stab at dating later in life can be both exciting and nerve-wracking, but no matter how long it's been since your last first date, some aspects of dating are the same as ever. Just remember to have fun and don't be afraid to try new things.
Keeping marriage going strong into your golden years The trend of longmarried couples calling it quits has been growing. However, there are some steps couples can take to keep their relationships going strong. Divorces among people over the age of 50 have doubled since 1990, one out of three Boomers will face their golden years unmarried. There are a number of reasons why divorce rates have skyrocketed among the over-50 set. Understanding just why these divorces are taking place and taking proactive steps to alleviate some of the divorce triggers can be a recipe for a happy marriage that continues throughout a couple's golden years. • Increase accountability. Ours is a transient society where
families no longer bat an eyelash over moving great distances away from other family members. As a result, Boomers may feel like they are not connected to children or grandchildren. With this in mind, they may feel less attached to their marriage or their responsibilities or believe that no one will get hurt by a divorce. Keeping families close and remaining in frequent contact can increase accountability and reduce the propensity for divorce. • Get things out in the open. A major reason for a failed marriage is years of avoiding significant issues rather than addressing problems. Couples should make time to talk to each other about anything that might be bothering them rather than letting

too many things slide. If these conversations turn into shouting matches, there is always the option of bringing in a third party to serve as a mediator. • Spend time apart. After retirement, couples may find themselves spending hours upon hours in each other's
company. While togetherness can be beneficial, too much time spent together may lead to feelings of suffocation and the perception that each member of the relationship is no longer his or her own person. Individuals can remedy this by doing more things on their own, whether

The personal notes and cards and other surprises may fall by the wayside after being together for some time. Make an effort to
• Practice selflessness. Sometimes all that is needed to rekindle a relationship is a selfless act that shows how much you care for your partner. Couples who are on the fence with regard to divorce can make an effort to improve the relationship rather than simply see divorce as the best option.

never gone to one of these, you should really go experience it. There are just children everywhere. It’s definitely loud, but the atmosphere is just so great, and to see all these kids, of all ages and from all backgrounds, just having fun and playing and laughing together is really something.” Throughout the week, Eddy says, all sorts of community partners and sponsors have donated time and energy to make sure there’s always something for families to do together. “The school district is having the Rotarians go read in schools again, the city has donated their $2 dropin programs for the entire week – so there are 10 programs at the Sportsplex and Community Centre that are completely free to try out during the week.” The Museum at Campbell River is also offering free admission

to families for the week (Monday to Friday), the Campbell River branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library has a full day of events scheduled for Jan. 25 and Laichwiltach Family Life is opening their gymnasium for a night (Thursday, Jan. 26) for a family drop-in event. The week wraps up with a performance by award-winning children’s entertainers, The Kerplunks, at the Tidemark Theatre. The reason Family Literacy Week is so important, Eddy says, is that it’s about families learning and having fun together, rather than as individuals. Which is why this year’s week-long event is encouraging parents and children to unplug from their devices. “It’s about taking some time, getting off your phone and engaging with your children. Take your kids out and leave your phone in your car. You really don’t need
it for an emergency, you’re bringing it with you to hang out with it. Leave it in your car and spend a half hour fullon tuned into your kids. You might be amazed at their insights and how incredible they find the world. You can watch the world through Facebook – and I, myself, am someone who does that, so I’m not casting judgment – or you can watch the world through your children. I think that’s the way to go.” For more information on the events planned for the week, “Like” the Campbell River Literacy Association on Facebook – they will be posting all of the schedules there – follow them on Twitter, or look for the fliers that will be circulating around town at various locations. “And if none of that works for you,” Eddy says, “just give us a call here at the office at 250923-1275 and we will email you a schedule directly.”

Kat Eddy, executive director of the Campbell River Literacy Association, has been working to organize Family Literacy Week – Jan. 22 to 27 this year – since about mid-October, and she’s pretty happy with how it has come together. “It’s always amazing to me how generous Campbell River is,” Eddy says. “We’ve been doing this for eight years now, and when I was making phone calls to our traditional community partners when I was starting the organizing of it, everyone was all, ‘Oh yeah! What are we doing this year? How can we be a part of it again? What do you need?’” And so, thanks to those sponsors and partners, families will once again have access to many events, as families, to which they wouldn’t otherwise have had access. “All the community events within the community, as per usual, are free,” Eddy says, beaming. The week kicks off with a free family swim on Sunday, Jan. 22 at Strathcona Gardens, which Eddy says is maybe her favourite event of the whole week. “It’s just a super fun day,” she says with a smile, leaning back in her chair in her office at Robron Centre and picturing the scene at the pool last year. “If you’ve

After a long battle with cancer, it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our husband, father, friend and most importantly our â€œPapaâ€?. He was born in Vancouver, BC at Vancouver General Hospital to Elmer and May Clark. He was predeceased by his Mother, Father, sisters Isobel and Joan and brother-in-law Gil Reynolds. Bill moved to Ocean Falls in 1951 where he worked as a pipe fitter for Pacific Mills. It was there that he met and married the love of his life Lorraine. In 1958 he was transferred to Campbell River where he worked for Elk Falls Mill for the rest of his career as a Pipefitter Foreman. He was an avid steelhead fisherman and was a long time member of the Tyee Club. He also played fastball and golf and enjoyed the many retirement years he spent in Yuma, Arizona. Bill especially loved his grandchildren and spent countless hours with them camping, playing crib or dominos or spending time in the garden. He never missed a hockey game, soccer game, swim meet, dance recital or anything that they were involved in. Although not all of the kids lived nearby that never stopped him from supporting them. They were all especially close to their Papa and he will be dearly missed. He leaves behind his best friend and wife of 63 years Lorraine, his children Adele Byra (Mark), Bob Clark (Carmen) and Leslie Clark. He was proudest of his seven grandchildren Emily Griesbach (Ryan), Madelyn Byra, Alisha, Katie and Tyler Clark, and Kirsten and Braeden Allkins. The family would like to thank the staff on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the CR Hospital, and Yuculta respite for the care they gave Bill during his stays there. Also, a special thank you to the wonderful staff at Evergreen Seniors Home who made such a difference in his final days. Celebration of Life will be held at St. Patrick Church Saturday, January 14, 2017 at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice.

In 1972, he was accepted to BCIT, Vancouver, BC in Forestry. In 1973, he got his first Forestry job in Zeballos. In 1977, he went on to build log homes in Barhead, Alberta and Penticton, BC. He returned to Zeballos in 1980 to continue his career in Forestry. Doug spent his working career in the forest industry. He worked a number of years as a logging engineer in Zeballos before moving to Weldwood in 1990, where Doug was area engineer for the Security Bay operation. Following the purchase of the Weldwood operations by Interfor in 1995, Doug performed a number of forest engineering duties until his illness forced him to discontinue work in early 2016. Doug will be remembered for his dedication to the job, attention to detail and above all his ability to mentor and develop the careers of young foresters. Doug enjoyed outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, playing all sorts of sports and nature photography. In the early/mid 1990’s Doug would go out fishing after hours while in camp. He liked to keep the garden and lawn in good shape. He enjoyed the forestry engineering bush work to the point that it became a hobby. He really missed the field part of his job in the last number of years. Doug was a devoted family man. He would just drop everything he was doing when someone needed him. The family would like to thank his Oncology team headed by Dr. Kollmansberger at BC Cancer Agency in Vancouver; Dr. Wayne Crowe; all the staff at Campbell River General Hospital, home care nurses and home support team who took such wonderful care of Doug. The family would also like to thank all the family friends who brought food and support to our family. A special thanks goes to Dr. Valmiki Veerapen for his care and concern. At Doug’s request, he will be cremated and a celebration of life will be held on February 4, 2017 @ 11:00 am at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to St. Patrick’s Catholic Church Building Fund in Campbell River will be gratefully accepted.

Regional district to put on emergency prep sessions MIKE DAVIES CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR
“I don’t blame the general public for their lack of preparedness,” says Shaun Koopman, protective services coordinator for the Strathcona Regional District (SRD), sitting at his desk surrounded on all sides by regional maps and photographs, whiteboards filled with planning charts and lists and a table full of what looks like a jumble of wires, alligator clips from jumper cables, satellite phones and maybe an old CB radio in there somewhere. “I can, however, try to do something about it.” To that end, Koopman and the SRD has scheduled a few workshops in
various locations around the region to bring people up to speed on how they can best prepare for the likely scenario that will play out following a significant seismic event. There will be one session on Monday, Feb. 20 at Elder College (North Island College Dogwood campus), one on Cortes at the Klahoose administrative building on Sunday, Feb. 27 and one at Strathcona Gardens on Saturday, March 4. Why should people go? “Well, the first reason people should come to that it provides them with a chance for dialogue with the expert of the subject matter – me – and just talk about what it means for them to be prepared in the community,” Koopman
says. “It’s a chance to talk about whatever they want to talk about, ask me about the plan, learn what the different resources are that are available, dispel any myths that might be out there, learn what some of the hazards and vulnerabilities are within the community, that kind of thing.” While he would like to just be able to give everyone in the community a list of things to do so they are ready for a serious event like a major earthquake, Koopman says, he just can’t. “How a household should prepare for an emergency is completely different for each individual household,” he says. “You have to tie
your preparedness to your individual circumstances. “What I’m going to tell a family of eight living in a floodplain is going to be completely different from what I tell a single mother living on the top floor of an apartment building, just as an extreme example.” He promises it’s not going to be a class. There won’t be desks, and there won’t be a test at the end. “I have my stuff that I want to talk about that I know it’s important for them to know, but almost more important is for them to have the opportunity to tell me what I can do for them or what they think is important for me to know. It’s just a chance to talk,” he says.
But there will also, he hopes, be some learning happening. The course, if you want to call it that, “is to give people the skills they need to come together and help each other in a disaster. It’s definitely important for us, as first responders and emergency responders, to be prepared, but the level of the disaster and its effects on a community is really determined by the level of preparedness within individual household and within our neighbourhoods within our community. We are way more resilient as a community if everyone has five days of food stockpiled, for example.” Koopman says they won’t be doing a full-
on first aid certification – there simply isn’t enough time to do that with everything else they need to get through – but there will be general first aid tips offered, as well. “It’ll be mainly be things like how to dress wounds, bandage cuts, tie slings, that kind of thing, because those will be the most likely injuries after an event and if people have the skills to do those types of things, it can really help keep our first responders and medical people available to help those in more dire situations,” Koopman says. People are asked to preregister for the workshop they are planning on attending so they know how many people they are expecting.
And for those who can’t make it to one of these sessions but are still interested in the information being provided, Koopman says he’s happy to set up sessions for businesses or organizations who would like to bring him in. “It doesn’t have to be the full four hour thing, either,” Koopman says. “It could even be just a basic, 60-minute household preparedness session or whatever they want to talk about.” For more information on this session or to register – or to set up a private session with Koopman at your organization or workplace – contact Koopman by email at skoopman@ strathconard.com or at 250-830-6702.
