Mae marks 100th, still going strong SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

Six weeks after Campbell River’s Mae Tuningley was born, Babe Ruth made his baseball debut with the Boston Red Sox. When she was two years old, sonar was invented; up until the time she was 12, movies were silent, and penicillin was invented the year she turned 14. This past Saturday, over 100 of Mae’s closest friends, relatives and some ‘old’ students turned out to celebrate the retired Carihi teacher’s 100th birthday at the Maritime Heritage Centre. Born the second of 11 children on May 25, 1914, Tuningley, who never married or had children, began teaching in Saskatchewan in 1935. She came to Campbell River in 1951, She built a house with the help of family and friends in 1959, the same house she lives in

today. She taught business and commerce at Carihi until 1974, when she retired. Family and friends came from as far away as Ottawa to celebrate the centenarian, who reportedly has better hearing, vision and memory than some of her nieces and nephews. “I go for walks but not as much as I should,” said Tuningley, who has survived all 10 of her siblings. “I have to use a walker first thing in the morning when I first get up, and when I am walking on the trails, but other than that I am quite mobile.” When asked what the secret is to living 100 years, Tuningley said, “It’s pure luck and genetics.” Mae’s full story will be featured in ‘Today’s Seniors” in the Wednesday, June 4 edition of the Courier-Islander.

The $170,000 project was one of four recently announced under BC Hydro’s Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program. Three other projects getting funds from FWCP are Grilse Creek on the Salmon River, improved fish passage on the Salmon River diversion and an $87,000 boost to the Buttle Lake Supplementation Marmot Recovery Foundation. FWCP funds are provided by BC Hydro and managed in a partnership with the Province of British Columbia, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, First Nations and the public to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife impacted by the creation of BC Hydro dams. “In BC, we are blessed to have hydroelectric facilities that generate clean power,” said Bill Bennett, Minister of Energy and Mines. “This electricity is the backbone of our economy. It is our responsibility to ensure our resources are cared for and preserved. This year alone, more than $7 million will go towards protecting fish and wildlife in areas with hydroelectric operations, through more than 80 individual projects.” The Salmon River Estuary is the only significant area of coastal

The Vancouver Island Marmot – Buttle Lake Supplementation Marmot Recovery Foundation is in its final year of a threeyear project. During 2012 and 2013, more than 30 captive-bred, and 20 wildborn marmots were translocated to eight sites in the Buttle Lake area. At least four sites now have fledgling colonies with multiple marmots remaining onsite for two years or more; and successful reproduction has occurred at three of those sites. The goal of this year’s project is to evaluate the effectiveness of new release techniques for the Vancouver Island marmot.

The $70,000 Grilse Creek project will repair, maintain and build new fish habitat upstream of the Salmon River Diversion to provide rearing and holding habitat for steelhead, coho and resident trout of all life stages. A minimum of 18 main-stem large woody debris (LWD) sites will be built or repaired in the lower portions of Grilse Creek. There will also be $36,000 used for the assessment of distribution of 2014 brood

BUSINESS

Tim Hortons in Willow Point could open sometime this year NEIL CAMERON COURIER-ISLANDER

I

t’s not often Tim Hortons will modify one of its building designs, but when the company saw the view from their new outlet in Campbell River, the decision was easy. The new Timmy’s for Willow Point was approved last week by city council, just days before the company marked the 50th anniversary of the first Tim Hortons opening on May 17, 1964. “They were quite impressed with the view,” said Campbell River Tim Hortons owner Dave Paquin. “So we modified the design to take advantage of that.” Paquin said that with the city’s granting of a major development permit, he would like to open this year. “It’s difficult to say when we’ll open but definitely we would like to open as soon as we can,” he said, adding there were still some items to finalize with the city. He said he expected to have a building permit within four weeks. Dave and his wife Cathy have been planning the addition of the third Tim Hortons for quite a while and both were ecstatic that the project has moved to this point. All was not that smooth, however, as part of the city approval process proposed the Paquin’s provide a noise

Dave Paquin mitigation report prepared by an acoustic engineer for their drive thru. And you could almost hear several intakes of breath from around the council chambers when Councillor Claire Moglove said council should be sure of the noise because of the problems they had with the pole peeling plant on Gordon Road. In that situation the plant met all approval guidelines but the ensuing noise from the operation caused public protests from neighbours. Ensuing noise mitigations seems to have solved that issue. Paquin explained to

council that Tim Hortons had lots of experience with the issues of drive thru noise. He explained that the company has spent a lot on technology to make sure they have little if no impact on the surrounding neighbourhoods. He said volumes can be adjusted for day time and night time and that more directional voicing means the sound is directed directly to drive thru customers. Council eventually voted to allow the permit without requiring the noise mitigation report. The Paquin’s were also required to hire a professional biologist to help clear the site of invasive species. Councillor Larry Samson questioned that extra expense. He said the city has participated in ‘broom bashes’ at which local volunteers get together to clear the weeds without a biologist being present.

Although not the exact design, this shows a pretty close depiction of what the Tim Hortons in Willow Point will look like, allowing more windows for the view.

Local resident in need of kidney donor SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

Cindy McLean is hoping someone will have the heart to spare her a kidney. The 48 year old Campbell River resident and fitness instructor feared at that time that her kidney function could drop from the 15 per cent it was at, to a dangerous 12 per cent, which means dialysis has to save her life. PAID ADVERTISEMENT

As a Disciple of Jesus Christ you Protect your church (4)

“Let love guide your life, for then the whole church will stay together in perfect harmony.” Colossians 3:14 LB Gossiping usually means passing on information when you’re neither part of the problem or the solution. It’s like accepting stolen property—it makes you just as guilty of the crime. The moment somebody begins to gossip you should say, “Stop, why do I need to know this? Have you talked directly to that person?”. People who gossip to you will gossip about you. They can’t be trusted! Furthermore, when you entertain gossip God says you’re a troublemaker. Listen: “Troublemakers listen to troublemakers” (Prov. 17:4 CEV). Isn’t it sad that in God’s flock the greatest wounds come from other sheep, not wolves! Paul warned of cannibal Christians who, “Devour one another (and destroy the fellowship)” (Gal. 5:15 AMP). The fastest way to end conflict is to lovingly confront those who are gossiping and insist that they stop it. Start practising Christ’s method of conflict resolution! (1) “Work it out between the two of you.” (2) “If he won’t listen, take one or two others along.” (3) “If he still won’t listen, tell the church (leadership)” (Mt. 18:15-17 TM). That’s God’s way. It must be ours too! Excerpt from The Word For YouToday, with permission from UCB Canada, 214 Pinnacle St. Belleville, ON, www.ucbcanada.com. Join us every Wednesday night @ 7pm at the C.L.F prayer chapel. Presently Pastor Albert Hopp is teaching “Walking with God”.

Cindy McLean says without her granddaughter, 4 year old Adwoa Afriyie, she would be laying on the couch all the time. The 48-year-old fitness instructor, who has been battling kidney disease for 10 years, and diabetes since she was six, is hoping someone will come forward as a living donor to help her avoid dialysis set to begin this summer, This month, her kidney function did just that, dropping to 12 per cent, and the long, exhausting, isolating process

of dialysis is scheduled to begin in August. But it is not too late for McLean to avoid that if she can find a living donor to step forward. “If I had to go on dialysis it would mean nine hours a day to stay alive,” she said.“It is not a perfect substitution for a functioning kidney. With a kidney donation I could live out a more normal life for quite a long time. I would love not to be bound by a dialysis machine at home for many hours, and be able to enjoy a less restrictive diet and live life so I can enjoy my granddaughter who I adore.” McLean was diagnosed with Type I Juvenile Diabetes when she was six years old and has been on insulin shots ever

since. This disease led to her kidneys failing. Live kidney donations (coming from a living person) as opposed to cadaver donations are better according to McLean. “The kidneys last longer, about 20 years where the others last about 10 years,” she said. Family members are always the best option for people like McLean but she has not been very lucky in this regard. Her brother went through the lengthy process which includes blood testing, ultrasound, chest x-rays, heart testing, but his blood sugar was between 6.1 and 6.5 and it cannot be over 6.0. McLean’s sister started the process and was diagnosed with melanoma shortly after the testing began. Her other brother has lung cancer, her son has diabetes like she has, which is why she is reaching out to the Campbell River. “If my kidney function drops anymore between now and August then dialysis will have to start on an urgent basis,” said McLean. “It is very hard on your body and most doctors like to avoid it and go right to transplant.” Since last May, McLean has had to cut her work in half because her doctor said her activity level was making her condition worse. She is running fewer fitness classes, and battling more significant fatigue. While she would often like to just stay home and lay on the couch, it is her four year old granddaughter that keeps her going. “She knows when my insulin is low and gets me some of her juice, she loves to help me inject the insulin and if I do it without her she is unhappy that I didn’t wait for her,” said McLean. “This little girl just keeps me going.” According to the Kidney Foundation of Canada a live

kidney transplant is the most successful of all transplant procedures. Donors must be over 18 and under 70, in good health, and not have heart disease, high blood pressure, hepatitis, cancer, or diabetes. Due to the improvement in anti-rejection drugs, donors do not have to be genetically linked to recipients. The Foundation also points out that each time a live donor is matched with a recipient, others who do not have a live donor are moved up on the deceased donor list. “I know what I am asking for is an enormous sacrifice. Having major surgery is not easy,” said McLean. “On the upside we all have two kidneys and yet we only need one to live a healthy, normal life. Outside of the risks associated with any surgery, donors do not typically experience negative health effects from donating a kidney. The average stay in hospital is three to four days and the recovery time is four to six weeks although the transplant centre will write a time-off work letter for eight weeks. There is also financial support to avoid out of pocket expenses.” McLean’s blood type is A negative, meaning she could be a match to anyone with a blood type of A or O. “My wish is not to put pressure on anyone to participate on this journey with me. I recognize that your lives have their own complexity and that becoming an organ donor will not be in the realm of possibility for some of you. But please if you wish to help me put my name on the form they send you. “If you want to reach me you can call 250-923-2669 or email me at ccmclean@telus. net. You can contact St. Paul’s Hospital at donornurse@ providencehealth.bc.ca or 1-877-922-9822.” sthomson@courierislander.com

Schools to close Monday due to job action SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

A

s part of the escalated job action by the BC Teacher’s Federation, Campbell River public schools will be closed Monday, May 26. The union representing public school teachers announced on Tuesday it is moving to Phase 2 of job action. That includes rotating one-day walkouts in districts around BC. It also means extra curricular activities, such as field trips, will be cancelled. The BC Teachers’ Federation‘s announcement comes just days after the province made its latest contract proposal, offering a $1,200 signing bonus and a sixyear contract in place of the 10year contract previously sought by the Liberal government. The government proposal also threatened a five per cent wage cut if a contract isn’t reached by the end of the school year. BCTF President Jim Iker said in a news conference that teachers were hopeful when the government backed off the 10-year term. “But the next day, hope that this government would start negotiating in good faith faded when the employer announced a series of threats around wage rollbacks, lockouts, and attempts to divide teachers, parents, and students,” he said. On Friday, the government threatened to cut teachers’ pay by five per cent if a new contract agreement is not reached by the end of the school year, Teachers are seeking 13.75 per cent over four years. The offer on the table from the school employer’s association is currently 6.5 per cent over six years. Teachers are asking for smaller classes, more one-on-one time for students, extra help for those who need it, and more specialist teachers. sthomson@courierislander.com

City council wants you to be timely when you appear before them as a delegation. Councillor Andy Adams said it was time for the city to come up with a proper procedure for approving late

delegations during council meetings. “We have had the situation where there have been a number of late delegations come on and I certainly understand the timeliness of it,” he said. “However, I would like staff to investigate the pros and cons of, like, do we let a late delegation on for a full 10 min-

utes or do we do what other municipalities or regional districts do and that is put late delegations at the end, taking into consideration people who have put their presentations on the agenda and may have to wait a much longer time than what they anticipated.” ncameron@courierislander.com

Reconsider rescinding, save $245,000

I

t would appear that city council knows that a four-way stop at 14th and Petersen would probably solve the traffic problem there. The solution would cost around $5,000. But during 2014 financial planning council voted six to one to okay a $250,000 solution including traffic lights and sidewalks. Councillor Andy Adams was the only member of council to vote against it. So it was strange to see the item come up at last Tuesday’s council meeting, added to the agenda under

new business by Mayor Walter Jakeway. During that presentation long time resident and businessman Dave Atkinson explained how the fourway stop would work and how building sidewalks that go nowhere in an industrial area was probably a waste of money. And then at the same meeting Campbellton Neighbourhood Association spokesperson Brian Shaw said, yes, his group agrees that a four-way stop would be fine.

It was at that point that one would figure someone — especially Mayor Jakeway who’s war cry has been against wasted spending — would make a move to rescind council’s earlier decision. Under point of order, only those who voted in favour of the lights are eligible to make a motion to rescind the decision. And Adams, who probably would have liked to add further comments to the argument, could not speak to the issue because nobody made a

motion in that regard. Councillor Claire Moglove expressed confusion too, wondering if anyone was going to make a motion and why the matter was brought up to council once again. If council had rescinded their decision the city would save close to $245,000. Instead an intersection that apparently doesn’t need traffic lights or sidewalks, will get them. Council can and probably should move to rescind their earlier decision.

>>Your Letters / we want to hear from you// email: editor@courierislander.com The truth about the seniors’ group’s efforts Keith Price’s letter in the May 14 Courier-Islander was prompted by the letter that K. Collins wrote in the May 9 newspaper. I feel compelled to settle quite a few things that Price has stated as he has not done his homework regarding the Seniors’ Centre. His statement “what do we, the seniors deserve beside growing old?” Well Mr. Price for your information Campbell River is one of only a few cities of our size in British Columbia that DOES NOT have a senior centre, even Gold River has a senior centre. Why is that? You’ve stated “we’ve had our whole lives to prepare for becoming a senior.” What does that statement even mean? All we want is a place to come have an inexpensive, nutritious lunch, play pool with our buddies, play cards, do puzzles, play bingo, do crafts, yoga, line dancing etc. In other words be healthy, active seniors instead of wasting away at home with nobody to talk to or even worse in the hospital taking up a much needed bed. It is a well known fact Mr. Price that some of our seniors who used to come into the centre when we were at The Common are now reduced to going to the Food Bank. Also an inactive senior is an ill senior. When we were in The Common they could come in for an endless cup of coffee, have a muffin in the morning, have a nutritious lunch and take a sandwich home for dinner. One last tidbit and that is one third of the population of Campbell River are seniors. Jan Askew Board Member Campbell River Seniors’ Centre Society

The seniors stats compelling to know There very much needs to be a conversation about a seniors centre in Campbell River, a public conversation as well as a political one; and it seems that the forum for some of the conversations will be the newspaper. Perhaps some information and some facts would be helpful. At the 2011 census there were 6,030 persons over 65 years of age in Campbell River. That is 16.7 per cent of the population and represents a 31.5 per cent increase in that demographic from the 2006 census. There are over 3,000 Campbell Riverites in the age range of 60-64; and an additional 3,100 in the 55-59 age bracket. That adds up to 10,000 to 12,000

persons over 65 in just 10 years. Persons over 65 years of age are high end users of hospitals and health facilities. So it is important to maximize seniors’ health. It is in any community’s best interest to have a facility that promotes activity and socialization for seniors. Senior activity in Campbell River has evolved in several ways. There are multiple interest groups — fishing groups, dancing groups, book clubs, church groups that meet in a variety of settings. These groups have a single interest focus, and when a member is no longer able to participate they lose the activity and the social contact. There is the excellent 50 Plus Active Living programs run by the recreation department of the city. The activities are chosen

by the staff and time slotted and leader chosen by the staff. There is the Senior Centre Society that was incorporated as a ’not for profit’ organization in May 2009. The mission statement of the organization is: To make a positive difference in the lives of the senior citizens of Campbell River and area by providing a facility in which they can socialize daily on a self governing basis. We differ from the city 50 Plus Active Living in that we are a completely volunteer and self governed organization. We have provided free activities, a place to gather and socialize, and for many, a place to share a meal. Helen Whitaker Campbell River

Putting best face forward City offers incentives for facade work on downtown businesses COURIER-ISLANDER

T

he city of Campbell River wants to help downtown businesses put their best face forward And they’ve got some cash incentives to do so. At its April 15 meeting, council endorsed the Downtown Facade Improvement Program, the next step in ongoing efforts to revitalize the downtown area. The program is designed to encourage business and building owners to invest in building upgrades, creating a more interesting and appealing streetscape to attract more people and business to Campbell River’s downtown core. “This is another example of downtown revitalization in action,” said Ross Blackwell, the

“The program is intended to make city streets a more inviting and interesting place to walk and shop.” - Blackwell city’s land use services manager. “The program is intended to make city streets a more inviting and interesting place to walk and shop, help building owners attract and retain tenants, build community pride and enhance quality of life and promote the marketability of this local business area.” Grants for up to 50 per cent of eligible project costs — to a $10,000 maximum — are available for commercial storefronts located within a special revitalization area of downtown Camp-

bell River. (See the map at right for specific locations.) “One of council’s priorities is to plan for continued downtown revitalization,” said Ron Neufeld, the city’s deputy city manager and general manager of operations. “To date, council has implemented several strategies that have led to positive change. Council’s desire to encourage development in the downtown core aims to increase future revenue for all involved parties, and The Downtown Business Improvement Association is supportive of the program.” For detailed information, or to discuss a development project’s eligibility, please contact the Land Use Services Department at 250-286-5726 or email LandUseServices@campbellriver.ca.

Ed Rosse Plumbing has been serving Campbell River and surrounding area since 1981. The company has been taking care of the plumbing, heating and gas needs for their customers for over 30 years. They can be counted Photo courtesy of Erin Wallis Photography on to provide the best and most professional plumbing solutions for both residential and commercial problems. No job is too small or too big for their qualified technicians. They believe in building long-term customer relationships and care about homes and the work they do on them. Customer service is a top priority - as is giving back to their community. They support many charities in Campbell River. Their connection to CF goes back several years. From 1986 to 1996, Ed Rosse Plumbing sponsored a slow pitch team which played every year in the Cystic Fibrosis Slow Pitch tournament. The year they won it, they donated their winnings back to the local CF chapter. Ed Rosse Jr. went to high school with golf tournament founder Kim (Black) Wood, who suffers with CF, and he learned about the daily challenges of living with the disease. He had always wanted to do something to help out in a big way so two years ago, with the support of his father and brother, they decided to become a highest-level platinum sponsor of the Rod Brind’Amour Golf event. The Rosses have always had a special interest and connection to hockey and have supported minor hockey in Campbell River for many years. Hockey, the Rosses and support in the fight against CF. It's the right fit. They look forward again to this year’s event on Saturday, June 14th and a long, rewarding relationship with the CFC CR chapter. Join them at the Evening Dinner/Auction - call Bev at 250-287-8600 fot tickets.

City gets good marks for community connections COURIER-ISLANDER

From the Planning Institute of BC, the City of Campbell River has received an honourable mention for its efforts to increase awareness about local government land use planning and regulations. The recognition highlights the city’s new initiatives that share information with residents, business owners,

building and developers, including: • the LUKE cartoon series in City Currents newspaper ads and on the website • how-to video clips posted on the City’s YouTube channel • building and development lunch time forums • printed and online fact sheets with detailed information about building near steep slopes, waterways, eagle trees

and other environmentally-sensitive areas • a development permit handbook and a guidebook for city council The City’s efforts were considered in the Excellence in Planning Practice (Small Town & Rural Areas) category and will be acknowledged in Planning Institute of BC’s Planning West publication as well as at the institute’s annual general meeting later this year.

City’s new website comes up golden COURIER-ISLANDER

The City of Campbell River website has won gold in the government website category of the 2014 AVA Digital Awards. There were approximately 2,100 entries in more than 200 categories for the 2014 competition, and the gold award was presented to approximately 16 per

cent of entries, which were judged to exceed the high standards of the industry norm. “The City of Campbell River website was evaluated on originality, innovation, design, functionality, site content, professionalism and effectiveness,” says Warren Kalyn, the City’s information services manager.

The City’s re-designed website was launched in fall 2013, with updated content, a new look and layout, extensive use of images, enhanced mapping, a centralized document library, plus advanced search capabilities, translation into more than 70 languages, a full mobile version, an opinion poll and photo library.

Local Shopping for a fire pit People have sat around an open fire outdoors for centuries. Not only does fire provide warmth and light, but also it offers a relaxing setting for conversation and socialization. The outdoor fire pit has transformed the concept of backyard entertaining. Homeowners understand how a fire pit can add value to a home and make their yard an inviting place to be on a summer evening or a chilly autumn night. Outdoor fire pits are a relatively new creation that continue to grow in popularity. Once available strictly through specialty retailers, fire pits can now be found on the shelves of many home improvement and big box stores as well as online. Fire pits can add a lot to a home’s exterior entertaining area. Some fire pit styles and materials will last longer than others. Homeowners should assess their needs and the space available before choosing a fire pit for their home. First, homeowners must decide if they want a permanent or portable fire pit. If you are ready to make an enduring change to your yard and landscape, then a permanent fire pit is the way to go. These can be made of stone or brick and are often very durable. Permanent fire pits can be incorporated into landscape designs to create a professional patio look. They’re also some of the safer types of fire pits because they cannot be knocked over and the bricks or retaining wall construction provide a barrier around the fire. Portable fire pits are freestanding units that can be moved around the yard on a whim. They also can be loaded into the car and taken to a neighbor’s house or even to the beach. Portable fire pits are less expensive than permanent models, and some homeowners prefer a trial run with a portable pit before deciding to install a permanent structure. Portable fire pits are made of metal and usually coated with a fireproof paint. Over time, exposure to the elements can cause the metal to rust or weaken, something homeowners should consider prior to purchase. Homeowners also must consider a fuel source. Wood is a common fuel source for fire pits. Wood can be inexpensive, especially when gathered from around the yard. However, a wood-burning fire will constantly have to be fed with new branches. If you want to have a roaring fire but don’t want to maintain it, then a gas-fueled fire pit is better. Natural gas fire pits can run off of a portable propane tank (think barbecue tank) or be directly connected to a home’s natural gas supply. Now you can decide on the style. Gas fire pits will give you a greater number of design options, but there are still plenty of choices with wood fire pits. From bowl-shaped pits to rectangular-shaped pits to barrel-style pits to chimineas, there are designs to fit most preferences and size constraints. Once you have chosen a fire pit, safety should prevail. Here are some tips to consider. • Keep the fire pit away from the home and objects that can burn. Maintain a safe distance from the fire pit at all times. • The best place to have the fire pit is on hard stone, cement or tile. Portable fire pits can be placed on patio stones in the lawn. • Use a screen to keep embers and sparks from escaping during use. • Keep children a good distance away from the fire pit and always supervise when the pit is in use. • Make sure the fire is completely extinguished before going in for the night. • Do not use any accelerants to make the fire bigger or light faster. • Buy a vinyl cover to protect the fire pit from the elements when not in use.

Rotary marches those dimes to good use COURIER-ISLANDER

The Rotary Clubs of Campbell River recently presented $11,296 to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation. These funds are the proceeds from the March for Children this past December and will help purchase an Infant Stabilette for the Maternity Department. On average, 400 babies are born in the Campbell River Hospital each year and an infant Stabilette is present at each birth. This equipment is used to perform a baby’s first exam and health care measurements. The Stabilette also functions as a neonatal crash cart in the event there are complications after birth. The

Please note that the disclaimer below the offer indicated that the price is based on 2014 Rondo LX MT (RN551E)

cost of a Stabilette is $25,000. There are two Rotary Clubs in Campbell River; the Rotary Club of Campbell River and the Rotary Club of Campbell River Daybreak. The main objective of Rotary is service — in the community, in the workplace, and throughout the world. Throughout their history, Campbell River Rotarians have continuously adopted the theme that Rotarians are committed to “putting something back into the community.” This has resulted in millions of dollars and tens of thousands of volunteer hours into projects for the citizens of Campbell River. The March for Children takes place in December on the last Saturday before Christmas, often on the coldest, wettest day. The March is a project shared between the two Camp-

TRACK & FIELD

Hoff shatters two Island high school records Carihi runner wins both the junior boy’s 1,500m and 3,000m races breaking one mark that has stood since 1973 KEN ZAHARIA COURIER-ISLANDER

It makes you wonder what Brendan Hoff would have done with a healthy back. Despite having to take a week off from training, and then only getting in three training sessions before the Vancouver Island High School Track and Field Championships last Wednesday and Thursday at UVic, Hoff proved his resilience. Running for the Carihi Tyees Hoff posted a pair of gutsy wins and in the process set records in both races, one dating way back to 1973. Running through the tender back, Hoff was nothing short of brilliant winning the junior boy’s 3,000m Wednesday, breaking the nine minute barrier finishing in 8:56.86, an amazing 20 seconds ahead of runner-up Joshua Bailey from Dover Bay. Hoff’s time also destroyed the old record of 9:11.00 set in 1997 by Ben Mocket from Dover Bay. Thursday, Hoff became a double gold medalist, continuing his impressive domination over the Island field this time winning the 1,500m by 10 seconds over Bailey once again. More importantly to Hoff his clocking of 4:06.04 broke the long standing 44-year-old record of 4:10.06 set in 1973 by Tom Griffin from Victoria’s Arbutus. For the Campbell River long distance running phenom the two wins now gives Hoff six Island titles. Hoff, 16, is only in Grade 10, he’s now won both the junior boy’s 1,500m and 3,000m since he started competing in Grade 8. These two championships though were a little more special by the fact he wasn’t exactly sure if his back would hold out and he knew

he had a good chance at establishing new records.. “I can’t walk too well today,” said a smiling Hoff on Friday. “The 3,000m on Wednesday was okay, but the 1,500m (Thursday) I felt it (back) give a little in warm up and it hurt pretty well the whole race. “I’m very happy with the results, breaking the record from 1973 was pretty special. At the time when Tom (Griffin) broke it it was the fastest 1,500m in Canada and he should have made the Canadian Olympic team, but they (Athletics Canada) said he was too young.” Despite not knowing how the back would hold up, Hoff went into the Island championships with two goals in mind, breaking both records. “I knew to have a chance at breaking the records I had to do it from the front and keep my pace up throughout the races,” he said. “I led right from the start in both races.” Hoff said he had some help with the pacing from his dad, Terry, and River City Elite coach Gord Hay calling out his times in both races. “The 1,500m is an all out sprint, you need to know what pace you’re on,” explained Hoff who in the past couple of years has won both, indoor and outdoor, provincial and national junior titles. Hoff will now be getting ready for the 2014 BC Provincial High School Track and Field Championships, May 29-31, at McLeod Athletic Park in Langley. “I’ll see how my back feels the coming week,” said Hoff of competing at Provincials. “It should be good to go. I’m confident about my two races; nobody in the province has beat my times.”

A full field of 12 Crash to Pass cars took to the track over the weekend. #73 Sheldon Hopp was dominating the field, winning the 10 lap heat, but after leading the first 10 laps of the main, Hopp would run into mechanical issues, opening the door for #01 ‘The General’ Jeff May to take the lead and the eventual win. Two new cars joined the field on Sunday bringing the total up to 12 for Sunday night. May would continue his dominance though, winning the 10 lap heat and dominating the 20 lap main to win his second main in as many nights. Another season high of eight Roadrunners qualified over the long weekend. #66 Nick Leavitt would win the heat, but #73 MacLaren Inglis would hold off Leavitt to win the 15 lap main. Inglis and Leavitt would once again battle one another on Sunday; Inglis would take the 12 lap heat, and would hold off Leavitt to win his third straight Roadrunner main event. The I.M.C.A Modifieds made their first

appearance off the year on Sunday. An incredible 10 Modifieds arrived on Sunday, which was one of the largest fields at Saratoga in many years. Father and son team of Jason and Chris Beaulieu were battling all night long in the Modified class. Chris would barely narrow out Jason for the win in the heat. Forty laps were given for their main which saw some of the cleanest, tightest racing you will see all year, but after all was said and done, Chris would once again edge out his dad, taking home a clean sweep. A total of six Bomber cars arrived on Sunday. #66 Wil Baun made his first ever appearance at Saratoga Speedway and didn’t disappoint, finishing second in the 10 lap heat, and leading all 15 laps of their feature main event. Extra laps...After a long weekend of racing, Drifting round two and three are now up on the racing card at Saratoga. Heads up Drag Racing has also been added to next weekend’s event.

In Support Of

GARY SCHELL for being APRIL

What is the root of all evil? Some say selfishness, and Saint Paul said it was the love of money, but perhaps it is really just fear, since fear is at bottom the unwillingness or inability to trust God. While we should be a bit dubious about reducing everything, especially something as complicated as sin or evil, to one simple thing, the more we reflect on this the more we see that fear does indeed reside at the basis of many sins. Consider how greed (or the love of money) derives from a fear that our future will be destitute and that money will somehow guarantee our security. Negative emotions like jealousy and envy are often borne of the fear that we will lose our loved ones to more attractive or talented rivals. Anger is quite often just fear that has turned outward: the startled response to a slammed door is quickly replaced by anger directed at the door slammer. But, perhaps this is as it should be: anger and fear are appropriate at the right time and place, and when tempered by reason and mercy. Perhaps no one thing is the root of all evil and perhaps there are many roots of many evils. Greed is one thing, while fear and anger are another, or to quote Joseph Butler, “everything is what it is and not another thing.”

Trevena says new ferries should be built in B.C. SIAN THOMSON COURIER- ISLANDER

North Island MLA and New Democrat Ferries Critic Claire Trevena introduced a private member’s bill that could literally float local economies. “The Provincial Shipbuilding Act,” said Trevena, “would benefit the province’s economy, create jobs, and if passed, would ensure that ferries, sea-buses and any other vessels used by or for the public are built in Canada and have the opportunity to provide direct economic benefits here in B.C.” B.C. Ferries will be replacing 26 ferries over the next 15 years. “If these ferries were built in this province, we would see tremendous growth in this industry,” Trevena said. “But this would require a commitment from the Liberal government that we have not seen to date. In the past decade, we have added five new vessels to the B.C. Ferries fleet, and none have been built

here.” The bill would also support an expanded provincial apprenticeship program with a requirement that at least 15 per cent of the labour force be enrolled in a recognized B.C. apprenticeship program and would also see a provincial shipbuilding strategy developed. “Instead of spending hundreds of millions of dollars on the construction of ferries in Europe and the increased maintenance costs that incurs, this bill would see that this money is invested back in the B.C. economy, creating good jobs for workers here,” she said. Trevena added that a study by the Columbia Institute showed that the construction of just three ferries in B.C. would add $378.5 million to the provincial economy, and result in $200 million in consumer spending and $100 million in taxes. “For every 100

jobs created in shipbuilding, 135 additional jobs are created elsewhere. This is an industry that B.C. should be proud of, and passing this legislation would ensure we are doing everything possible to help it thrive,” she said. The Columbia Institute released Made-in-BC Ferries: The Economic Benefits of Local Ship Procurement, authored by labour researchers Blair Redlin and David Fairey using economic analysis from Ernie Stokes. The report finds that for every 100 jobs created building or repairing ships, a further 135 jobs are added to the provin-

cial economy. It would also increase provincial tax revenues by $36 million and federal revenues by $66 million and enhances the ability to provide local training and apprenticeship opportunities for British Columbians.

“I hope the B.C. Liberal government will show their support for good jobs and our shipbuilding industry by supporting this bill,” said Trevena. Currently, post secondary training in the shipbuilding industry is

available at the Industrial Marine Training and Applied Research Centre (IMTARC) in Esquimalt, BCIT, Camosun College, Vancouver Island University and North Island College.
