350 fixes helping get rid of city’s cat title The Low Income Spay and Neuter Project is working hard to knock Campbell River off the podium for worst cat overpopulation problem in BC. A $158,000 two-year project grant from PetSmart Charities of Canada, received back on Oct. 22, 2013 allows for the sterilization of up to 1,500 cats in the community. Three months into the project, veterinarians have already fixed 350 owned, feral or free roaming cats in the community. Organizers are urging everyone to keep spreading the good word about this program, especially with kitten season right around the corner. They say that preventing more unwanted cats from being abandoned, neglected or abused will go a long way towards their goal. For information on how to access this program, email campbellriver@spca.bc.ca, or call A local project is helping Campbell River 250-830-4192. control its cat overpopulation.

Quinsam Hotel pub having a beer and a couple of girls walked in and sat on the other side of the bar,” he said. “One was beautiful and I told my friend that my future wife just walked in and he laughed at me, so then I walked over to this girl and introduced myself and told her that I was her future husband and she laughed at me also. Six months later, on Valentine’s Day, we were married.” He spent their wedding night on the couch, after having a little too much to drink. “I made him sleep on the couch for a few anniversaries after that, as it seemed to be a tradition,” said Georgina. “He proposed to me when he was drinking, and forgot the next day he had done that, and I had said yes, and he proposed the next day so I had to remind him we were already engaged.” Still, they hadn’t made the connection of their previous encounters. And then Bud happened to go through some photo albums while visiting Georgina’s mom. “I was going through old photo albums and

guess what, there was that little girl my mom babysat all those years ago,” said Bud. “And later, when we were talking about being in hospital, that we realized she was also the girl on the pedal car.” “We have been connected all along,” said Georgina. The Logans have only spent time apart when Bud was in hospital for nine days after suffering a brain hemorrhage last year. And Bud keeps thinking of how they’ve beat the odds. “My friends started making bets that we wouldn’t last six months,” said Bud. “I never got any money from that kitty but they are all divorced now, and Georgina and I — 29 years, two dogs, four cats, two birds, and three kids later — are still going strong.” The couple plans to spend Valentine’s Day making a big dinner together. “I am 29 years sober,” said Bud. “And I won’t be sleeping on the couch.” sthomson@courierislander.com

By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander They got married on Valentine’s Day, but Cupid had them in his sights long before that. For Bud and Georgina Logan, fate came swinging and rolling by several times and they didn’t even know it. When they were married on Valentine’s Day 1985, they still didn’t know that they had met several times earlier in their lives. “Our mothers worked together,” said Bud. “When I was 16 my mother babysat a six-yearold girl for the day and I remember her swinging outside on a rope swing and looking so sad. I felt compassion for her. It turned out her parents were divorcing.”

That little girl turned out to be Georgina. And her recollection of that day? “All I thought about was who was that weirdo kid up on the porch looking at me,” she said. Years later Bud was in a serious logging accident suffering several broken bones and put in isolation. “I couldn’t have visitors but there was this girl who was always riding by my room on a pedal car,” he said. “She would say ‘hi’ with a big smile on her face and this always cheered me up.” As it turned out Georgina was also a patient in the hospital at the time. Bud recovered from his injuries and left town to go cowboying in the interior. He returned in 1984 to work for the forest service. “One night after work, I was sitting in the

We have gone out of our way to make services available to vets 24/7 and our allies say we are doing more than any other country. No one has put in the type of commitment we have. The veteran affairs budget is $1 billion more than it was when we were elected. We have no complaints from veterans in the riding, they are better looked after than they have been previously.� The budget also focuses on job training for people with autism, and those with other special needs, as well as older workers. “Agencies in my riding will be able to apply for funds to run programs under this mandate,� said Duncan. Duncan also mentioned one item that got lost in the budget announcement. They have removed the GST on acupuncture services.

Anti-bullying day means pinks shirts will be out in force By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander It’s that time of year again where pink shirts prevail and bullies do not. Anti-Bullying/Pink Shirt Day is coming to the Campbell River School District on Feb. 26. Traditionally the event is held every February on the fourth Wednesday of the month. The original event was organized by David Shepherd, and Travis Price of Berwick, Nova Scotia, who in 2007 bought and distributed 50 pink shirts after a male Grade 9 student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt during the first day of school. It has since branched out to school districts all over the country. School District 72 Superintendant Tom Longridge has encouraged staff, students and parents to wear something pink to support anti-bullying initiatives throughout the district and to

Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love. Albert Einstein

Our View Not too early to think election It’s election time again this year. This time around, it’s a November date with the polls to select our next set of city councillors and school trustees. Slowly but surely, names are being floated in the community as possible candidates for city council. That makes sense, because council’s decision affects us all, and stakes are high. However, we virtually hear nothing about potential school trustees. Should we even have school trustees? We never seem to think about possible trustees, until just before voting day, anyway. That’s a conversation for another day. It’s now February, leaving nine-and-a-half-months until the Nov. 15 decision day. It’s getting to the point where, if a potential candidate’s isn’t lifting their hand up above the masses, they’re in danger of being out of the race before it starts. In what can amount to a popularity contest, with the most recognizable name becoming the landing spot for an ‘X’, time is of the essence. If you’re thinking about running for council, or school board, you’d best be warming up and trial-ballooning intentions now. Which brings us to the point: Why would you want to run for council or school board? What makes you think you’d serve the public well on either team? In our democracy, there are few prerequisites at all, which is both good and bad. If you want to run for council just because you want to, you can. You don’t need a lot of money, experience, or an impressive resume. That’s probably a recipe for not getting elected, but go ahead and try. To that end, a conversation has been started called The Municipal Governance Project, headed by well-known politician Preston Manning. They’re trying to gather criteria that, hopefully, will produce a better-qualified list of candidates to govern our cities. “One of our functions is to strengthen the knowledge and the skill level of these folks that want to run for elected office,” Manning said recently in the Victoria Times Colonist. This time, perhaps more than ever, we need to know who is running, why, and if they’re up to the task. — Vancouver Island NewsMedia Group Poll Question: Will Canada win gold in both men’s and women’s hockey?

DFO doesn’t fund culling

Re: DFO needs funding, not fish farms. We agree with Mr. Macdonald of the Campbell River Guides Association that providing sufficient funding and resources to Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) is important to ensuring the appropriate regulation and protection of our oceans. We would also like to clarify how compensation works for Canadian food producers. Aquaculture food producers — both finfish and shellfish — have the same access to funding as agriculture food producers. This includes money for research and development, disaster coverage, and compensation if our stocks are ordered destroyed. Compensation takes place through the Canadian Food Inspection

Agency (CFIA) and is not related to the funding for DFO. This is the same procedure for beef, pork or chicken producers should their stocks be ordered destroyed, and even vegetable farmers can be eligible for compensation if they receive a destruction order. No farmers in aquaculture or agriculture want to see their stock culled. BC Salmon Farmers spend years caring for their fish. Disease outbreaks are rare, thanks to the dedication of our fish health professionals, and we are proud to produce healthy, nutritious fish that are helping to meet the growing global demand for seafood. Colleen Dane Communication Manager BC Salmon Farmers Association

Bureaucracy something to think about BUREAUCRACY: Where they shoot the bull, pass the buck and make seven copies of everything. For me, Toronto’s City Hall is one of the most stunning edifices in the world. Not because it’s beautiful (although it is) — but because it so perfectly marries form and function. You’re familiar with the building? The hall itself, where politicians meet and policy is hammered out, looks like a hovering flying saucer, graceful and svelte. It is bracketed by two high-rise, silo-like towers full of offices. Years ago, some anonymous wag summarized it perfectly: “the pearl of democracy surrounded by the oyster shell of bureaucracy”. Ah, bureaucracy. What is it in human nature that compels us to grow this cancerous carapace of delay, resistance, complication and rigidity around our best intentions? Bureaucracy is not just an infection

main recommendations following the attack: all emergency and rescue personnel needed to have one secure radio frequency merged into the Department of Homeland Security for ease of communication. Uh-huh. So a decade-plus later, how’s that working out? Well, after an outlay of $430 million to build and operate that frequency, an internal survey reveals that out of 479 workers surveyed only one knew how to find the frequency, 72 percent of the staff didn’t know it existed and 50 percent of the department’s radios couldn’t have accessed the frequency even if the employees knew where to look. The inspector-general of the Department of Homeland Security admitted that if anything, the U.S. might be more ill-equipped to deal with a terrorist attack than it was pre 9/11. Something to think about the next time a voice on your phone tells you “Your call is important to us.”

The stores are interested in making money; and some have no conscience about who they sell to as long as they are making money. A day of no government control would be a scary day. The loosened liquor laws are a step backward not ahead. Alcohol has been made a ‘god’ in today’s society....the media, sporting events, etc. etc. are all promoting it...seems no one much knows how to enjoy themselves any more without being intoxicated to some degree. Karen Neal

I would like to comment on an article I read in your paper Friday, Feb. 7. The headline for the article is ‘Chamber says proposed liquor law changes a good thing’. It is beyond my comprehension why anyone would encourage more accessibility to liquor; considering the ruined lives, the destroyed families, deaths, riots, homelessness and the cost to our medical system that liquor is responsible for. Colleen Evans must be very young and inexperienced or has her head in the sand; going so far as to say “at the high level we would have liked to have seen more substantive measures to remove government from the business of liquor at both the retail and distribution level.”

Something is wrong when profits come before care who are paying the taxes and business is still profiting and the taxpayers are still the losers. We need to keep big business out of health care. It can’t be for profits, if the government needs partners it needs to partner with the stake holders, the people who care for their clients, the workers in health care, and the people who would only care about making a decent living not large profits. They need to be the investors in health care. T. Samuels

So we the taxpayers are training these people to do these jobs in health care and big business is profiting from this? The government is allowing them to do what they are doing to New Horizons, driving people back on to welfare and EI making the taxpayer pay for it and business to profit again from this. Now these people who have lesser paying jobs or no jobs at all pay fewer taxes and spend less money putting more people out of work putting a larger burden on the people

New Horizons petition has hundreds of names, more dates set for signing By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

An additional 60 VIHA funded beds are provided for general complex care clients, while another eight complex care beds are available for private pay clients. The second and third floors have 32 units each with two double rooms to accommodate couples aging together. A unique aspect of the facility is its children’s daycare Photo submitted centre. Jarvis and Biley encourage everyone in this community to show their support. Valery Puetz, Executive Director of the Campbell River and North Island Transition Society “Sign the petition and take copies of the (seated) receives a cheque for $1,650 and 200 easy read novels from The Altrusa Club of petition to have your friends, co-workers, Campbell River members, from left, Barb Macleod, Patricia Tomlinson and Edie Wilcox. neighbours and everyone to participate or The donation will be used to purchase books for a resource library for the tenants of Rose come and help us with the petitioning,” they said. “This is an extremely important situation Harbour and clients of society programs. that deserves the complete support of our entire community. You can get copies of the petition or return “If it’s in stock we have it!” completed copies of the petition to the above mentioned petition times and dates. Campbell River cares about their Seniors and the people who look after them.” sthomson@courierislander.com

The recent layoffs at New Horizons for Seniors Care Home have a group of citizens taking action. A petition has been started and efforts to gather more signatures are under way. On Dec. 30, 2013, 118 employees received layoff notices, effective April 22, from New Horizons Community Care Home. New Horizons was sold to Park Place Seniors Living in September, a family owned and operated Vancouver based company of 17 owned and operated sites in BC and Alberta. The plan is they would be laying off all employees and they would be hiring a contracting company to re-staff the facility. “We are appalled at the actions of the owners of New Horizons, Island Health and the Ministry which sanctions these attacks on the living conditions of seniors in care,” said Lois Jarvis and Barb Biley, petition organizers. “About half of the people that we met petitioning knew someone who worked or currently works or lived or lives at New Horizons. The overwhelming sentiment of the hundreds of people who have signed the petition is that this assault on seniors and health care workers has to stop.” There will be a petition team at Superstore from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. the next two Saturdays, Feb. 15 and 22, and the next two Sundays. Feb. 16 and 23, from noon to 3 p.m. for anyone to come and sign the petition supporting the residents of New Horizons, and the staff who take care of them, “They are being laid off by the owners Al and Jenny Jina of Park Place Seniors Living Inc. who wish to reduce the wages and benefits of the staff by hiring a company to look after the future employment,” said Jarvis and Biley. “The current employees can PHONE 250-830-WOOD(9663) apply for their jobs at lesser wages JUST and benefits but will be replaced by others if they choose not to accept 151 DOGWOOD, CAMPBELL RIVER these conditions.

PLANNING FOR LIFE CHANGES What to do when your marital status changes

50 Plus

Faye Reynen If your marital status changes, it is very important to let Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) know as soon as possible. You can change your marital status by filing an RD65-Marital Status Change Form, or by calling 1-800-387-1193. If you call to change your marital status, be prepared to answer some questions in order for them to confirm your identity. If you are getting married, this needs to be done no later than the month following the change. If you are separating or getting a divorce, only notify CRA if the separation lasts more than 90 days. The date of separation will be the date you started living apart. You should know that if you continue to reside in the same household in order to share parenting or financial responsibility, you are not considered separated for the purpose of administering CRA services. Based on your marital status, CRA will recalculate your Child Tax Benefit (CCTB) and your GST credit payments. You may need to change your Direct Deposit information with CRA also. Other people or agencies you should notify are Medical Services Plan as this will affect your monthly premium. If you change your name, in addition to CRA and MSP, you should update your passport, social insurance number and driver’s licence. It is a very good idea to also notify your bank, tax preparer, lawyer and anywhere you have a Power of Attorney on file. Make an appointment with a professional to review your Will and Power of Attorney.

Valentine’s Day is every day for Clarence & Grace By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander Every day is Valentine’s Day says 75-year-old Clarence Ewart. Ewart married his wife Grace, 66, on June 18, 1999. In the 15 years they have been married, the couple, who live at Ironwood Place, have only been apart once, and that was late last year when Clarence had a bad fall and spent over two months in hospital. Grace visited him every day. “I almost died,” said Clarence, who uses a walker to help with mobility issues caused by a small stroke. The couple met at a Hallowe’en party but each cannot remember what costume they were wearing. “It must have been a good one,” said Grace. “I think he was in a handsome suit.” Grace was born in Duncan in 1948 and is known as one of the smallest babies ever born in BC. She weighed just 20 ounces. She is among 150 premature babies in the world who survived, against all odds, at a one-pound birth weight. And that was in the days where there were no incubators or neonatal intensive care units. Her caregivers through the Association of Community Living say that her stubborn streak and strong will helped her survive. Clarence was born in 1939

“It must have been a good one. I think he was in a handsome suit.” — Grace on the Hallowe’en costume Clarence was wearing the first time they met. in New Westminster and has lived in Campbell River since 1961. Clarence has been in love once before, and on the day he was going to propose to his girlfriend, a tragic accident took her life. “She was killed by a hit and run driver,” said Clarence, “but I don’t want to talk about that.” Instead, Clarence loves to talk about his wedding day. “We got a free ride in a limo,” he said. “There were 110 people at our wedding at ‘Our Place’ (Association for Community Living), Rick Hammond was my best man and Ernie Klassen took the wedding photos. We had our first dance to ‘Love Me Tender’ and I always hated that song until it was our first dance song. Now I love it. Our reception was at the Elks because I used to be a member there.” The couple spent a week in Victoria for their honeymoon, visiting the Museum and Miniature World and enjoying the complimentary breakfasts at the Caprice Hotel. “We loved it there and we have gone back to Victoria a few times since then,” said Family, General, Cosmetic & Neuromuscular Dentistry Open Monday thru Friday, early morning and evening appointments available.

Clarence. Both have lost family members, but they take great solace in their own relationship. “We have both lost our parents and some of our brothers and sisters but we have a lot of friends here at Ironwood Place, and our best friends are each other,” said Clarence. “That is the best thing about being married, to have your best friend with you all the time.” The couple loves to play cards in their spare time. Speaking of cards, Clarence said that is what Grace is going to get for Valentine’s Day. “It’s Valentine’s Day everyday for us,” he said. “I For Grace and Clarence, every day couldn’t afford flowers and is Valentine’s Day. candy every day.” sthomson@courierislander.com

Mount Washington re-opens after dump of 80 cm of snow Mount Washington was hit by over 80 cm of snow in the last few days. And with well over 100 cm of additional snow predicted to fall through this weekend, Mount Washington will once again reopen the resort for full winter operations. It officially re-opened Thursday, Feb. 13. “We were joking that this is the second version, version 2.0 of our winter season,” said resort spokesperson Brent Curtain. “And judging by the forecasts, version 2.0 is going to be much bigger and better than version 1.0.” The drought-inducing ridge of high pressure that disabled incoming weather systems since the fall appears to have broken down for good. The weather that Islanders are used to experiencing this time of year, moderate to heavy rainfall along the coast and deep snow in the mountains, is finally back with a vengeance. “We haven’t seen the weather systems line up like this in the forecast since Dec.

Angels in disguise By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander Smile, it’s free. That is what people were doing as they lined up outside Dr. Mike Finn’s dental office to have cavities filled, roots canaled and teeth extracted. Dogwood Dental Clinic joined the ‘Dentistry from the Heart” network, where dentists in Canada, the U.S.A, Ireland, Australia and Puerto Rico hold free dental events so that people who do not have the means to secure care can do just that. Available to people ages 19 and over, community members started lining up early Sunday morning, with 20 people in line by 7 a.m. The treatment started at 7:30 a.m. and by the time 5 p.m. came around, 43 people had received the dental care they needed. A member of Dr. Finn’s staff called the event “fabulous” and said, “there are so many out there who can barely afford rent and food but have nothing more. We are all gung ho and ready to do this again.” One patient praised the staff for their kindness and hard work. “Extra freezing and laughing gas for this fearful gal,” she said. “All free. Who does that?” Another patient went in asking for one tooth to be filled (patients can choose from either a single filling or tooth extraction). “They refused to do just one, they filled all three as two fillings had fallen out in the last six months. The whole staff have helped us in a way they probably will never know, angels in disguise today.” sthomson@courierislander.com

2012,” said Curtain. “The accumulations we are seeing are significant — this is great news for the mountain and for those who love to play in the snow.” Mount Washington plans to open up most of the front side of the mountain Thursday for alpine operations in addition to the Nordic Centre and new Tube Park. Night Skiing is slated to begin Thursday evening. “We’re back to all systems go,” said Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Photo submitted Marketing. “Our plan all along This was the scene at Mount Washington after it got a big dump of snow and reopened Thursday. was to reopen once the snow returned so we’re extremely is poised to be an upgrade from the last happy to call our staff back to the mounversion and Island skiers and boarders tain and continue with our plans for the couldn’t be happier!

ONESIE FUNDRAISER Campbell River: 190 Dogwood St. 250-286-4099

Check out the Young Masters in action Saturday Vancouver Island Soccer League Division 4B leaders, Canada Mainstream Young Masters, travelled to Victoria this past Sunday. With the fields closed once again in Campbell River it was fortunate that the local side were playing on turf and were able to get their game against Fernwood Kal Tire played. The Young Masters started well and finished strong in a 6-0 victory. This coming weekend the Canada Mainstream Young Masters have a doubleheader. They open the weekend on Saturday in the Pearkes Challenge Cup. The holders are our very own CR Golden Wings who won the Cup in a superb final victory over Comox last season. The Young Masters have elected to play in this Division 3 and 4 Cup and their opening game is against Prospect Lake of Division 4C. Should they win they will play a strong Division 3 side the following weekend. This Cup game is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Willow Point Park. The next day the team travels to Victoria where they play Vic West Casuals, who have recently overtaken Zgoda Juniors to sit in second place. Sunday, it wasn’t until Jacob Blanchard was taken down in the penalty area that the opening goal was scored. Blanchard took the penalty himself and calmly slotted the ball into the back of the net. Kal Tire put together a few good attacks but the defence of Colton Reesor, Aidan Anderson, Alexandre Desrochers and Mohamed Boukhouali were well organized and strong in the tackle. The second half saw another strong attacking effort by Canada Mainstream with five further goals added to the score sheet. Shane Dumanoir who had been the first half keeper enjoyed a good run up front and proved a real handful for the Kal Tire backline. It was no surprise that Dumanoir scored a couple of goals. Connor Fairweather also scored after his strike for goal deflected off a defender and looped over the helpless keeper’s head and under the crossbar. Kevin Shelswell added to his impressive goal tally for the season when he chipped one over the keeper as he came out. Jason Fawkes also scored after some excellent build up play involving a delightful one-two with Shelswell.

Killer Whales team up with Sharks to make a huge splash at AAA’s Last weekend the Campbell River Killer Whales Swim Club (CRKW) competed in Kamloops at the AAA Provincials Championships as part of the North Island Predators. The Predators is an association that was formed between CRKW and the Comox Valley Sharks, to create a bigger team atmosphere at bigger meets, as well as create more opportunities for relays for swimmers from both clubs. The best 18 and under swimmers all gathered in Kamloops to race for provincial supremacy and for new qualifying standards to the upcoming national level swim meets. The swimmers from Campbell River were as strong as ever winning 20 medals (five gold, seven silver, eight bronze), breaking 11 club records, one Provincial meet record, and sweeping the 11 and 12 girl’s relays. Jasmine Skuse had a breakout swim meet winning gold and silver medals in the 200m and 100m breaststroke events. With those swims she also achieved two of the needed three times to qualify for Age Group Nationals coming up this summer. She was also a part of two of the relays that won gold in the 11 and 12 girl’s age category. Melayna Beaudin also had a great meet swimming a number of best times, but most impressive were her relay swims at the end of the night where she would pull double duty and race in two age groups to win medals for both. Mackenzie Padington had her best AAA swim meet ever winning four medals (one gold, one silver, two bronze) and breaking six club records.

Does your kid need a bike? Spring is coming quickly and every kid should be riding a bike. It’s just part of growing up. How old does a child need to be to ride a bike? What size does he or she need? Where is the best place to buy a bike? There are a lot James Durand of unknowns when looking at bikes, so here are a few tips to get you started. These days you can get your son or daughter riding earlier than ever. If they can walk, they can ride. Run Bikes are little bikes with no pedals. These are great for getting kids started early and allow kids to learn balance and momentum on their own. When they get a bit older and graduate to pedals, in most cases, they will never need training wheels. Size can be a tough one; ideally the bike is a tiny bit big when you buy it. This way the child can grow into it. Depending on how fast your kid grows, this allows the bike to fit for a few years, opposed to a few months. If the bike is a surprise and you don’t have your child with you while shopping, bring a pair of their pants with you. This can really help the shop staff size the bike correctly. If you’re looking for a bike, go to a professional bike shop. The bikes will be a few dollars more than a big box store or a sports store, but you’ll get far more value. The knowledgeable staff will help you get the right bike. The bikes are assembled by professional mechanics and the bikes will be lighter, easier to operate and safer. Every kid should be riding a bike…Its just part of growing up. I’m James Durand and I’m goin’ ridin’ with my daughter.

Carihi’s Hailey Dean pins her opponent at the Alberni Invite.

Wrestlers look sharp in Alberni Campbell River wrestlers will be heading to Saltspring Island this upcoming weekend to compete in the Zone 6 championship, the qualifying tournament for the provincials being held in Prince George later this month. And if their most recent performances are an indication of what’s to come, there will be a number of local grapplers making the trip to the northern city. Campbell River wrestlers competed in the Alberni Invite last weekend, and came away with a mat full of hardware. Timberline wrestlers Brett Nelson and Conlan Foy both went undefeated and earned gold medals in their respective divisions. Foy was also named most outstanding wrestler

for the Cadet Boy division. Timberline coach Derek Berg was happy with the result. “I’m glad for Conlan. He has been showing steady improvement throughout the year. Both he and Brett are looking very sharp, as we prepare for provincials.” Carihi had a very strong showing, as all four entries came away with top-two finishes. Hailey Dean, Ali McPhee and Alex Jinda were quite dominant in their respective weight classes, and as a result they all earned gold medals. Petro Kindy-Olson also wrestled extremely well, and lost a nail-biter of a final, by only one point. He earned a silver medal for the weekend. The Phoenix middle school team sent a

contingent of seven wrestlers to the event. Shayla Bennet, Zoe Solway and Corinne Holmes earned silver medals, while Brady Assu and Kaitlyn Jinda earned bronze. “Our girls continue to do quite well, said Phoenix coach Al Cyr. “Despite a number of our top girls not being able to attend the event, we were quite pleased to have earned the second place team plaque for the school girls division.” For most of the Phoenix wrestlers, the Alberni tournament was the last of the season. However, a few of the Grade 8’s will continue to train with the high school kids in preparation for the zone and provincial championships.

U13 United show their never say die character Campbell River U13 United went to Ladysmith Sunday looking to make it three Upper Island Boy’s U13-15 Soccer League wins in a row to start the new year. They would have to settle for a draw; however, as the Mid Island U13 Highlanders were up for the challenge and then some. Only some late heroics kept this from being a loss for United. The game started off with both teams exchanging a couple of half chances. Mid Island though, would soon begin to dominate play. After 15 minutes, Mid Island would capitalize on a ball that was sent cross field into the middle of the box, then volleyed home from six yards out. Five minutes later, Mid Island would strike again, this time on a breakaway to give them

a 2-0 lead. A nice piece of goaltending from Cam Younger kept Mid Island from going up by three as he was able safely knock away a well struck ball from about 20 yards out. Mid Island clearly dominated the first half, keeping Campbell River bottled up in their end for long stretches at a time. Campbell River was unable to sustain any dangerous play and had to feel a little lucky perhaps to only be down by two goals. Although Campbell River was able to step their play up a bit for the second half, Mid Island seemed content to rest on their lead. Campbell River was able to maintain some pressure in the Mid Island end, but was stymied by Mid Island’s swarming defence.

Mid Island had a chance to put the game on ice when a shot that was heading into a wide open goal was cleared away by defender Lukas Gurderjahn. Instead, the game remained at 2-0 with about 10 minutes left to play. Minutes later, Campbell River striker Joe Dirom received a nifty little cross field pass, eluded two defenders, and scored on a partial breakaway to put United on the board with eight minutes left in the contest. Then, with less than two minutes to play, Corson Arbour would find a bouncing ball and volley home a high rocket shot from 25 yards out to tie the game up at 2-2. It was a character comeback for United that in the end, probably felt like a victory of sorts.

Nordic Devos shine at BC Midgets Freestyle skiers bring The Strathcona Nordics Devo race team travelled to the Teck BC Midget Championships at Larch Hills in Salmon Arm on the weekend. In this competition for cross-country ski racers aged 9 to 13 years old, the Devo team finished in third place overall in a field of 16 teams. Strathcona Nordics Devo coaches commented, “It was a fantastic result for our club considering that we only had, at most, eight training sessions on snow for this season and the kids were skiing in chilly -14 C weather.” The Strathcona Nordic Devos were made up of 26 young racers from Vancouver Island, and the team coaches say all their racers performed very well. In competition results, in the 2 km classic technique event Emmy Staff (Campbell River) and Hugo Henckel (Courtenay) both won silver medals. In the 300 metre skate technique sprint event Stephen Lamon (Comox) won gold, Amelia Wells (Saanich) silver, plus Carson Damery (Comox) and Hugo Henckel (Courtenay) both earned fifth place ribbons in their categories. In the team relay races, the Devos had four teams of boys and two teams of girls in the 4x1.5 km relay race. Naomi Swift (Comox) and Stephen Lamon (Comox) both earned special awards for their skate technique. You can learn more about the Strathcona Photo submitted Nordic Ski Club on their website Sylvie Johnston of Campbell River racing in the team sprint event at the BC Midget StrathconaNordics.com.

Peewee B Tyees keep playoff run going After a disappointing home ice loss to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs last weekend, the Mainstream Biological Consulting Peewee B Tyees squeezed out a 7-6 playoff win while visiting North Island rivals Tri-Port Eagles in Port McNeill on Saturday. With the victory the Tyees gained one of two North Tier 3 Division berths to the Island semifinals where they will play Sooke Saturday in Sooke. The Tyees found themselves up 6-2 after two periods against the Eagles, with goals from Riory Young, Cole Devlin, Dakota Sinclair, Jordan Baker, Nathan Lagos and Ridge Rosa, backed by some solid goaltending from Jayce Hudak. Perhaps over-confidence got the best of the Tyees going into the third as three unchecked Eagles’ forwards found the back of the Tyees net in less than three minutes to close the gap and make it 6-5 with 10 minutes to go in the game. To continue in the season, Tri-Port needed a tie or a win while the Tyees only option was to win this game. Tyees head coach Vince Devlin conveyed to the team as the game got tight, “Keep positive and remain calm. Let your conditioning and our team systems take over.

#11 James Severs This hometown forward fired in goals in all 3 games last week, down the regular season stretch run. The team will be counting on that scoring touch in the playoffs.

Just keep things simple and make the smart decision.” Young found a loose puck in between the Eagles’ defence in the Tyees end and skated down ice and unleashed a rocket as he crossed the blue line. The Tri-Port goaltender caught a bit of the puck but not enough as it bounced off the top of his glove and into the net. The Eagles still weren’t giving up and scored again with seven minutes on the clock and after pulling their goalie and drawing a penalty they continued to pepper Hudak right up until the dying seconds with the Tyees hanging on for the all important 8-7 win.

some heat to cold PG Arriving to -30 C temperatures, freestyle skiers from Mount Washington prepared to compete in the BC Timber Tour. There were seven skiers from the Island, three boys and four girls: Teal Harle, from Mount Washington, Layne Anvelt from Parksville, Todd Heard from Duncan, Hannah Benishchek from Victoria, Mei Pond from Nanaimo, Erin Sketchley from Campbell River and Sofia Tchernetsky from Mount Washington. Prince George, who hosts the Canadian Winter Games next year, set up three competitions, slopestyle, moguls, and big air. Competitors made the long journey via car or plane to put their skiing skills before judges to see how they placed in the events. The first day in the slop style competition Teal and Hanna won a gold, by hitting rails and flying off jumps in a stylish fashion. Mei pond stood on the podium in third, Erin place fourth with a solid run, Sofia, who is only 11 placed fifth in the older category, Todd finished eighth and Layne finished 11th. Attempting to follow the Canadian Olympic mogul skiers who won gold and bronze in Sochi this weekend, the Island skiers attacked the course. But it was only Mei and Todd who stood on the podium in the silver and bronze podium position. Hannah and Erin finished in fourth in their respective categories, Sofia finished sixth, and Layne earned seventh place. Teal earned a ride down the mountain in an ambulance after a nasty crash. “I hit hard enough to crack my helmet,” commented Teal. “The ambulance ride was fun, but just precautionary. I will be training again next week.” The last event was big air, an event where skiers flip and spin and twist off a huge jump. Hannah won a gold medal, Mei won a silver, and Erin narrowly missed the bronze medal and finished fourth. Todd, Layne, and Sofia all finished in the top 10.

What is pressure? Why can some athletes excel under pressure while others crumble when the game is on the line? “Pressure is just an external distraction to take you off your game—that’s it.” - Dale Trenholm It is really that simple; however, even something so simple can be very complicated if we don’t understand some few basic concepts, which I will cover in a series of articles in the future. Only a few friends know this story: Years ago, at the young age of 15, when I was playing competitive sports and had aspirations to play Senior ‘A’ fastball, I was under extreme pressure to throw the biggest pitch of my life at a Western Canada championship gold medal game here in Campbell River. The tournament was held at Willow Point Park, which at that time was surrounded by lush maple and alder trees. There was no Sportsplex or slow-pitch diamonds. Fastball was very popular back then, which really showed with the strong crowd from Campbell River that came out to support us for the gold medal game. Our team won the Western Canada Games tournament the previous year, so the expectations to win, on top of playing in front of the home crowd, intensified the pressure to perform and win. The biggest challenge I remember while being a pitcher wasn’t the external battles I faced during the game, but the battles going on in my mind leading up to big games (and after), which to me were every game I played. I hated to lose and would do anything not to lose (more on hating to lose later).

I don’t remember how we put At the time, I felt very foolish ourselves in the situation we were in, but that was the reality of it so I for losing, including feeling like I needed to deliver the biggest pitch had let my team down, which was a big weight to carry at the age of 15. of my life.

additional insights I have acquired, the memory of that experience gives me a clear understanding, as a coach, what the pressure of competition is. Dale Trenholm is the head coach of Campbell River Elite track and field club.

COMMUNITY UPDATE FEBRUARY 14, 2014 YO U A S K E D : Why light up Spirit Square? A recent letter to the editor expressed concerns about overnight lighting in Spirit Square. The lighting is left on for pedestrian safety and to allow people in passing vehicles to see any activity in the square after dark. Lighting the square has also successfully deterred vandalism, which helps keep costs low for vandalism maintenance at this site. The City also has an ongoing program to install LED lights that minimize energy consumption. If you have questions about City operations, please contact us!

City Hosting More Public Events for the Zoning Bylaw Update The Zoning Bylaw rewrite process is off to a great start after four successful Open House events in January. Public input is still needed to help identify the current issues across the City, and more Public Open House events are being held. Wednesday February 19, 2014 at the Campbell River Community Centre from 1-3 pm and 7-9pm Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at the North Island College, Rm C228 from 1-3 pm and 7-9pm Everyone who lives within the City is encouraged to come out to the informal Open House events. The Zoning Bylaw can change the type of permitted uses on specific properties or set general regulations, all of which may influence property values and neighbourhood characteristics. Bring your concerns, issues and suggestions about what you think we need to know as we proceed in writing the FIRST DRAFT. Another set of Open Houses will be held in April for the public to review the FIRST DRAFT. Project information and a copy of the current Zoning Bylaw 3250, 2006 is available for viewing on our website, www. campbellriver.ca, or paper copies are available for viewing in the Land Use Services Department at City Hall. For questions, please contact Ross Blackwell at 250-203-1144 301 St. Ann’s Road Campbell River, BC V9W 4C7 Telephone: 250-286-5700 info@campbellriver.ca www.campbellriver.ca
