60-year-old woman is in hospital after falling through a hole in the top of a bunker at a World War II-era complex north of Campbell River Thursday. The crew of a 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron Cormorant helicopter from Comox was called in by BC Ambulance personnel to air lift the woman off of the site on Yorke Island. She suffered head and chest injuries and was hoisted out of the complex into the helicopter for transportation to Campbell River Hospital. She was in stable condition. Fellow hikers used a cell phone to call for help. During the Second World War Yorke Island housed 250 soldiers and an equal number of construction workers in an effort to create a defensive fortress against enemy ships coming from the north. Since then the site has become a Conservancy — a protected area designation under the Protected Areas of British Columbia Act. In her book, Yorke Island And The Uncertain War, author Cath-

erine Gilbert gives fair warning to those visiting the site. “The public is welcome to visit the site but should stay on the trails and enter any buildings at their own risk,” she wrote. The RCMP vessel Higgitet was also called to respond and remained on station during the operation. “We were able to get communications with the people on the ground by cell phone and they helped us to locate the scene. We inserted our SAR Techs along a 200 foot ridge,” said Captain Will Livingston, Cormorant helicopter pilot, 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron. ncameron@courierisloander.com

New MMBC program causing havoc at curbside

Set your mind at ease… Trust us with your autobody needs…

he new MMBC program for residential recycling is creating some serious challenges for local residents and their collector on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, Sonbird Refuse & Recycling Ltd. Under the MMBC rules there are some new items that can now be included but there are also items such as soft plastics that can’t be included at curbside. At the Campbell River landfill location, the large metal bins have been replaced by heavy duty bags that fill up quickly and leave glass recyclers leaving bottles and such by the side. The newly imposed system is also wreaking havoc at the curb, said Chris Bird, owner of Sonbird. “Some residents are doing their best while others are frustrated and taking it out on our employees. We are getting comments such as: ‘I’ve been doing this for years’, ‘all the rules have changed’, and ‘I am too confused so I’ll just put it in the trash.’ We’ve endured a lot of verbal abuse over the last little while,” he said. On a recent pickup day, Sonbird audited the con-

tents of the recycling bins and the results were very concerning, Bird said. “Over 20% of the stops had product not acceptable to MMBC. Contamination included glass, Styrofoam, soft plastics, dual material products and unclean materials,” he said. Contamination is a serious issue as MMBC is authorized to levy some serious fines for non-compliance, he said. “We no longer receive funding for the recycle depot — it has been a disaster to not have that available to the public free. The funding for curbside is so greatly reduced that the system now wants to pay us for our recycling by the tonne when we bring it to Nanaimo. If we go into the community and the contamination rate is high and we don’t pick up your recycling because of contamination which was at 25% on our last pickup, we then have less recycling to turn in and less revenue coming in,” Bird said. “Now we’ve got one tonne to take over there, we’ll get $100 for that recycling, and we’ve run our truck around community at a cost of $500 a week to get $100 for recycling. If we do send contamination through

the system, there are fines imposed by the company that’s running the MMBC program that are up to $1,100 per incident,” he added. Despite handing out new guidelines and sifting through where possible at the curb, there were 87 “soft plastic violations” in their last load on Wednesday, he said. “The other big problem with this program is it doesn’t cover multipleresident units, like apartments, trailer parks, condos, stratas. Vinyl Village in Tofino isn’t covered.” The province is now charging producers such as newspapers fees for recycling, but if frustrated consumers toss recyclables in the trash — or if they upcycle them, using newspapers in garden projects or papier mache or craft projects — the companies that printed those papers still have to pay recycling fees. There are town hall meetings scheduled next week in Ucluelet and Tofino to share information and discuss how to make the new program work for the West Coast, Bird said. “We’re appealing to the community to read the instructions and follow them,” Bird said, directing residents to www.WestCoastRecyling.ca.

How will the underground facility produce electricity? NEIL CAMERON COURIER-ISLANDER

W

hen we flick on a light switch at home, we know it’s the end result of the John Hart Generating Station. But just how did it create that electricity and, now, how will it create electricity with the new underground generating station? First of all, the existing generating station has six units that produce 21 megawatts each or 126 MW total — although they are currently rated at 121 MW due to age and condition. The new generating station will have three larger units that will produce about 132 MW. As a result BC Hydro will get an average annual power generation increase of 9.4 per cent over the existing facility. All very well and good. But, again, how does it work? Or, in this case, how will it work? Water will come down an 8.1 metre diameter tunnel from the reservoir and then bifurcate (split) off into three pipelines (you see one of the pipelines in the This is a rough illustration of a cross-section of the 38 metre high underground generating station that will be built on the John Hart site. The large bay area on the top floor is where the crane is located to lift up the generator and other related pieces for regular maintenance. This is also the area where equipment will be brought in by truck for the scheduled maintenance work.

charging at the entrance to Elk Falls Canyon, at the lower end of the deep pool area. And hopefully not affecting my fishing too much. Not only will there be an increase in power generation, the new station will provide better efficiency and increase operational flexibility. For instance, during the summer at the low flow conditions, one unit may be used at a higher efficiency output rather than splitting the flow between multiple units as is the practice today. That will make better and more efficient use of the water.

Trimming vegetation on Seawalk not easy “The vegetation in the riparian zone along the Seawalk is critical habitat...” Ross Milnthorp NEIL CAMERON COURIER-ISLANDER

I

f you’re wondering about the height of plants along the Rotary Seawalk, you’re not the only one. And it’s not as easy as going in there with a weed eater and hacking it down. The area between the Seawalk and Discovery Passage is known as a riparian zone and plays a significant role in the health of the ecosystem. Hence any alterations of that zone must adhere to the Fisheries Act. “The vegetation in the riparian zone along the Seawalk is critical habitat that provides food and shade for fish that use the near shore environment, including spawning forage fish,” said Ross Milnthorp, the city’s General Manager, Parks Recreation and Culture. “These forage fish are a primary food for salmon (and many other species) as they travel through the Straight. There are a number of regulations in the federal Fisheries Act (enforced by Department of fisheries and Oceans) that protect these riparian zones.” Native trees and shrubs

Trimming the vegetation along the Rotary Seawalk is not as easy as it would seem. (Photo by Neil Cameron) cannot be trimmed along the riparian zone, partly because that vegetation helps to shade out invasive plants. Native dune grass can be trimmed to a height of three feet. Non-native vegetation within 15 metres of the high tide line can also be trimmed to a height of three feet. In the past, Milnthorp

said the city has contracted out vegetation trimming along the Seawalk but the contractor who has done this work in the past is no longer available. “We are in the process of arranging for a new contractor to do this work, and aim to have the vegetation along the Seawalk trimmed, according to the guidelines, in early sum-

mer,” said Milnthorp. In the meantime, Milnthorp said the city will continue to monitor the route to ensure access and public safety are maintained. Milnthorp said costs for the work varies each year, depending on the growing season and conditions. He said a very rough ball park figure would be about $7,500. The Seawalk was a project of the Campbell River Noon Hour Rotary club and stretches from Hidden Harbour in the north to Maryland in the south. At one time a dirt path existed there, later

replaced by a gravel walk way that meandered haphazardly along the waterfront. Between 1996 and 1999 a 4.5 kilometre paved stretch went from Hidden Harbour, thanks to the Rotary Club. In subsequent years the Rotary Club persisted and now the Seawalk is estimated to be worth about $1 million in cash value and, as far as an addition to Campbell River, it is priceless. The project would not have been possible, however, if politicians, beginning in the late 1960s to present, hadn’t proceeded with the Waterfront Acqui-

sition Plan. There were properties along the route that would have made the Seawalk difficult and more of a sidewalk to the highway than anything else. So the then District and now City of Campbell River purchased the properties. The main concept was to lay down asphalt along the route, thereby suddenly making a waterfront walkway possible for the disabled, bikers, roller bladers and elderly pedestrians. Plans are in the works to extend the Seawalk from Maryland to Jubilee Parkway. ncameron@courierislander.com

WILDLIFE

Remember it’s that time of year again, baby “We cannot possibly do as good a job raising any baby wildlife as their natural parents can.” — Birch SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

W

ith three fawns currently in their care, Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) is asking the public for help. “Does leave their fawns for eight or more hours at a time while foraging,” said Maj Birch with MARS. “She will not forget where she left her baby and should he/she have wandered off, the doe emits low grunting, which the fawn will respond to. If a fawn has wandered onto a road with no mom in sight, gently herd it back into the bush where it will likely drop down and lay still. While we would rather not touch a fawn, if it is necessary, do not fear the doe will reject it. The bond is very strong and she will never reject her baby. This goes for baby birds also. If the nest can be found, the baby should be put back in it. We cannot possibly do as good a job raising any baby wildlife as their natural parents can.” Soon, fawns will be travelling with their mothers to forage, and as a result, MARS is ask-

Please use extra care. Seeing one of these babies dead on

the road is a very sad sight.” In the last few days, MARS has had three fawns immediately returned to where they were found. They are also caring for two baby hummingbirds, two baby ravens, a baby red squirrel, several baby robins, a baby barn owl, plus 13 ducklings whose mother and two siblings were recently run over. Along with the babies in

their care comes a need for manpower. “We are running short of volunteers,” said Birch. “If you want to help we could sure use a helping hand, some folks can start training as animal care givers. First off you will be put to work in afternoons helping with cleaning chores, laundry, dishes, cage cleaning as well as helping with our busy event schedule

on weekends. You will be supported by dedicated volunteers and staff, and may graduate to animal handling by the fall, or sooner depending upon your ability and our need.” Please email info@wingtips. org or call 250-337-2021 during business hours.

Campbell River shafted on beds I n British Columbia the sad fact is where you die depends a lot on where you live. And in Campbell River, your options are fewer and farther between. The June 2013 Throne Speech by Lieutenant-Governor Judith Guichon promised that the government would work to keep spending focused on patients and delivering on an end-of-life care plan to double the number of hospice beds by 2020 “so we can better care for those we love in their last days.” Unless those last days are in

Campbell River. Last fall the Courier-Islander reported that there was a significant difference in the way hospices receive funding from Island Health, with much greater funding concentrated in Nanaimo and Victoria. And in 2012 Port Alberni Hospice served 317 and has five beds funded. But Campbell River Hospice Society, who served 1,516 people, has no beds funded. Victoria has 17 hospice beds. Nanaimo has 13 hospice beds. Health Minister Terry Lake announced last month a $250,000

grant to support four new hospice beds in Comox. But the new Campbell River Hospital, planned to open in 2017, does not have a single designated hospice bed despite the issue being raised several times by North Island MLA Claire Trevena. There was some hope last November when the intention to issue a Request for Proposals for 40 care beds in Campbell River, including three hospice beds, was announced by the BC Government. Six months later when the RFP came out, the hospice beds

were not included in the plan. There was no explanation. So terminally ill patients who chose to live in Campbell River, will not have the choices that people in Comox, Port Alberni, Nanaimo or Victoria have. Campbell Riverites can die at home, or in an acute medical unit. Hospice Houses have a different atmosphere and purpose than acute care hospitals or even long term care facilities. At the end of the day we want to be in a place where we are cared for, a place where we feel safe, dignified, and at peace.

>>Your Letters / we want to hear from you// email: editor@courierislander.com Too much concern for wrong intersection Does anyone here remember how concerned the quaint people of Campbell River were, more than 20 years ago, when faced with the prospect of installing two more stop signs and painting turning lanes at the intersection of Second Avenue and Alder Street? Some worried : “How will it ever work?” Some were convinced it couldn’t work. Fast forward to 2014 and that four-way stop sign still allows smooth, safe, accident-free control of a much greater traffic/pedestrian volume than when the signs were installed I doubt that the costs to do this were anywhere near the quarter million dollars now “pegged” for the 14th Ave./Petersen Road intersection. There is an intersection in Campbellton that is seriously begging for traffic control lights before someone dies there. I have narrowly escaped being run down three times in the crosswalk and an unfortunate man was run over by a hit and run driver there during the Christmas season a couple of years ago. The intersection at Island Hwy and Maple St. (Quinsam Hotel/Petro Canada corner) is , in my opinion, one of the most dangerous in our city. Four lanes bottleneck into two and left turns for any approaching vehicles are dicey at best. Be ready to dodge traffic in the poorly marked crosswalk and good

luck to the southbound strangers turning left quickly enough to avoid uncontrolled northbound traffic when they meet someone who has to drive into the wrong lane to go around the taxis permitted to park there beside the hotel. Eventually some one will be injured here. I phoned our city a while back about this intersection and was told: “We can’t do anything there because it is not a city street, it is Island Hwy. and the “provincial highway’s department has jurisdiction.” I told them about a

wheelchair bound man who once said, “Can’t is a word often substituted for won’t.” My suggestion to the city and the Campbellton “Improvement” Group is : 1. For the Campbellton Group — think about priorities and focus on lobbying for control lights at the aforementioned intersection rather than a large airplane model on a post. 2. For the city powers that be — use a portion of the quarter million dollars pegged for control lights at an intersection with less

traffic volume than Second and Alder (14th Ave./ Petersen Rd.) to place two stop signs and paint lines on the road. Then use the rest — around $ 220,000 — and lobby the provincial government to contribute to the cause for vital traffic control lights where they are actually needed before someone dies. This would benefit all “Riverites” and visitors to our fair city and might even save a life or two. Ed Ivanisko Campbellton

Shelter re-classification

Campbell river Food Map proving popular and not just for fresh fruit and vegetables

Meeting June 16 to discuss barrier levels SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

T

he Salvation Army’s Evergreen House (Shelter) may be reclassified to minimal barrier in order to take in people who are not sober. A community forum will be held on June 16 to lend your voice to the project. The Campbell River Emergency Shelter Reclassification Project is an initiative of The Campbell River Homeless Coalition and The Salvation Army. Currently the shelter is classified as high-barrier, meaning residents cannot be under the influence of alcohol or drugs if they want a bed to sleep in for the night. Along with the re-classification to an easily-accessed minimal-barrier shelter operating 24/7 under a harm

reduction model, offering a spectrum of on-site services, including sobering assessment, may come relocation of the facility to make access easier for those who need it. “Based on input from the community, we were asked to consider reclassifying the existing Emergency Shelter “Evergreen House” from high-barrier to minimal-barrier. We would like to be part of the solution and provide the service the community needs. Our partner BC Housing is supportive of the reclassification”, said Salvation Army Captain Gordon Taylor. “We feel this is an opportunity to improve sheltering services and address the needs of homelessness that have been identified in our community,” said Wendy

Tyrer, Chair of the Campbell River Homelessness Coalition. In partnership we will be hosting a community engagement forum for the neighbours located around Evergreen House (Emergency Shelter), as well as other concerned citizens to allow them an opportunity to lend their voice to this project.” The Community Engagement for the Emergency Shelter Reclassification Project is open to the public and registration is required. The neighbourhood forum will be held on June 16, from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Carriage Room at the Royal Coachman, 84 Dogwood Street. To register for the forum please call Sean Junglas at 250-914-1698 or email: Sean_Junglas@can. salvationarmy.org.

ampbell River’s Food Map (www.foodmap. campbellriver.ca) is just over a month, old and nearly 3,500 people used it in the month of May to find local food. And, this month’s Community opinion poll through the City’s website found that 70 per cent of respondents plan to use the Food Map to buy more local products. The Food Map can do more than just find local food retailers. The tool also hosts an inventory of potential land for food growing initiatives. Some city-owned properties (such as parks and vacant lots) have been listed on the Food Map. While these spaces are not guaranteed for urban agriculture projects, the database provides a starting point for groups and associations who are interested in establishing new community gardens, urban orchards, food forests and other food growing projects. Private land owners can also register their land on the Food Map if they are interested in connecting with an individual or group who are interested in gardening or food growing. Since there is no size limitation, land owners can post entire lots on the Food Map, or just portions of land such as backyards or raised garden beds. Owners can list, update and remove their property from the inventory at any time or simply list their contact details, allowing

The city does not pre-approve land that is listed on the Food Map, so land owners must make sure that any proposed use does not conflict with city regulations or bylaws “Business locations, backyards or farms are potential community gardening spaces. For example, schools that want to expose students to the food system, or aging residents who find it difficult to manage their property can benefit from partnerships with people and organizations interested in growing local food,” explains Amber Zirnhelt, the city’s sustainability manager. “The city will also provide information about things to consider and types of agreements between land owners and people interested in growing food.” “This tool has huge potential to benefit both property owners and community members. Depending on the

agreement between a property owner and the individual or group, the owner may gain access to a portion of the vegetables that are grown. At the very least, they’ll have someone maintaining a flower or vegetable garden,” says Richard Buchan, the city’s Food Map/green initiatives coordinator. “This tool can also help grow the local agriculture sector. Perhaps a new farmer can connect and provide space to others. This can help diversify their farming operation and allows for more land to go into production in a shorter span of time.” The city has created a guidebook for people interested in using the Food Map to access land. The document contains tips and resources for private land owners who are interested in listing their own land on the database. The guidebook, associated application forms and frequently asked questions and factsheets can be found on www.campbellriver.ca under the Food and Agriculture section of Green City. These materials are also posted on the Food Map’s resource section. For additional information about this project, watch for updates on the Sustainable Campbell River Facebook page, visit www. campbellriver.ca or contact the Sustainability Department at sustainability@ campbellriver.ca.

HEALTH

Hospice says IH falling short on EOL beds SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

T

he Campbell River Hospice Society says that Island Health is falling short on its promise for three end-of-life (EOL) beds in Campbell River. According to Valery Puetz, Chairperson of the Hospice Society, Island Health announced its intention last November to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for 40 community care beds in Campbell River, including three end of life beds, four to six long term stay rehab beds, and a mix of 31 to 33 complex care beds. They were looking for an owner/ operator to make this happen before the new hospital opens in 2017. But when the proposal came out last month, Island Health wanted 20 complex care beds and 20 dementia residential care beds. There was no mention of EOL beds or the four to six longterm stay rehab beds. “There are palliative care beds in Nanaimo and Victoria, and none north of that,” said Puetz in a letter to Premier Christy Clark on May 22. “And Hospice was told initially that the three EOL beds would be placed in Yucalta Lodge and moved when the new 40-bed facility opened. Since the Request for Proposals does not

include EOL beds, places like Evergreen Seniors home, who has started construction on a major expansion and would like to have a hospice palliative care suite, cannot even include this in their bid. In fact the new RFP essentially removes the ability of any residential care facility to have end-of-life beds funded by Island Health.” “These beds apparently disappeared somewhere between the promise of the beds and the issuing of an RFP,” said Maggie O’Sullivan, Vice Co-Chair of the Hospice Society. “We have not yet received the courtesy of a reply from the Premier. This issue is critical to our community.” According to Island Health, the beds support Island Health’s focus on community-based care which is often the most appropriate care setting for people who can no longer manage at home. “This is excellent news for residents of Campbell River,” said Comox Valley MLA Don McRae. “The creation of 40 new beds reflects government’s commitment to ensuring residents who are unable to continue living in their own homes have access to the appropriate type of residential care.” The RFP invites proponents to

submit proposals for 20 complex care and 20 licensed dementia residential care beds. Island Health may adjust the mix of complex care and licensed dementia care beds depending on population needs. Island Health may also negotiate with service providers to develop cost-effective options for up to 20 additional beds by 2020 — although these beds would be dependent on health care needs and available funding. “Island Health is fulfilling our commitment to create an additional 40 beds in Campbell River to tie in with the opening of the new Campbell River Hospital,” said Island Health Board Chair Don Hubbard. “While we know that most individuals want to continue to live in their own homes as long as possible with appropriate health care support services in place, these new community care beds will provide the services they need when they can no longer live at home.” The Hospice Society said that the demographics have changed in Campbell River since the pulp and lumber mills have closed. Many young families have left to find work and elderly people have moved to town. “The three EOL beds are going

CHURCH SERVICES DIRECTORY Rewrite Your Life

Writing can help us deal with many of life’s problems. Many teenagers have weathered the storm and stress of those turbulent years by keeping a journal, and that same practice can help virtually anyone who can express him or herself in writing. Writing about our fears and anxieties has a way of making them a little less scary and often gives us insight into how to resolve the situation. It can also be helpful to write about our lives in a way that essentially rewrites the story. Someone who is feeling a lack of courage might write about themselves displaying courage. We all have stories to tell, and in thinking about our lives we have a tendency to place our lives into an overarching narrative. That is, we tell ourselves a particular story that makes sense of our life. The story we tell as a teenager is likely to be very different from the one we tell in our twenties or thirties, and there is obviously some wisdom to periodically updating our story. What is the story that you currently tell about your life, and how would you like to see it changed? As we get older, and especially as we approach our “golden years,” we should think more about whether our story really does fit the life we have lived, and the story that we hope our life will someday tell. We should also remember that the final version can’t be written until our life is complete.

Creating an attractive dog run Millions of dogs share the homes and hearts of people across the country. Dogs can provide companionship, affection and joy. But when dogs spend time outdoors and cause damage to lawns and gardens, that cute and cuddly appeal might dwindle. Although dogs are beneficial in numerous ways, their tendency to create unsightly messes in the yard have many homeowners wringing their hands in frustration. Erecting a dog run or using other strategies may help to alleviate any damage the dog causes. A dog run is essentially a fenced-in part of the yard where dogs can play or be trained to relieve themselves. As most pet owners know, dogs, particularly females because their urine is concentrated to one spot on the lawn, can create unsightly urine burns. Looking at patches of burnt, straw-like grass where a lush lawn used to be can be aggravating. The same can be said for finding dog “presents” all over the yard. All it takes is stepping in or sliding in a pile of joy to raise blood pressure. Plus, there’s the extra work of tracking down such presents and having to clean them up. This can be time-consuming with a big yard, not to mention messy and smelly. Containing your dog to a run will keep messes all in once place. When the dog cannot be supervised by you, a dog run will be a way to let the dog spend time outside in a way that he or she won’t get into trouble. The run can be constructed of any material you desire, whether chain-link fencing, wood slats, lattice material, or tightly spaced shrubbery. Pea gravel is a good material to use on the floor of the dog run. Not only is pea gravel aesthetically appealing, but it also allows urine to run through into the soil below and will be able to keep feces above for easier clean-up. It also can be hosed off and topped off when gravel is depleted. Avoid landscape fabrics or artificial turf that is not designed for pets. It may collect waste and lead to the proliferation of bacteria, which can create odor and unsanitary conditions for the dog. Many people like to camouflage dog runs from the rest of the yard. Trailing vines of ivy or other upward growing plants may suffice. Avoid planting any poisonous plants next to the run so they are not accidentally consumed. It is also best to keep sweet nectar plants away to minimize bee and wasps from flying close to the dog. If you do not want to segregate your dog from the rest of the yard, find ways to prevent him or her from getting into places you’d rather keep off limits. Cobble rock is often difficult for dogs to walk on. Use it to form barriers of 3 to 5 inches in width to prevent access to certain parts of the yard. Border planting beds with thorny bushes or big rocks that don’t allow traction. Do make a dog running path by the fence where there is a lot of foot traffic. This way your dog can run back and forth and watch the neighbors go by. Again, pea gravel is a good choice here so that it will mask paw-trodden grass. Dogs will behave like dogs, so pet owners should learn the best way to enjoy the backyard together. Training the pooch to relieve himself in one spot and creating places that are safe for him to urinate may alleviate destructive behavior.

RBC comes through again for local hospital COURIER-ISLANDER

BC has leant a big helping hand to the Campbell River Hospital Foundation (CRHF), with $20,000 to support the purchase of a Video Processor for the Endoscopy Department. This equipment works handin-hand with the Electrosurgical Unit for Endoscopy. The scope attaches to the Video Processor allowing the physician to see the progress of the scope on screen. This machine is the second one of its kind at the hospital which means one machine will be able to remain in the endoscopy unit at all times. Currently, the machine must be transported up to the Operating Room and Intensive Care units if needed, disrupting the list of patients in the Endoscopy Department waiting for a procedure. RBC Branch Manager, Matthijs Bruining explained why this cause is important to the institution. “As always our organizations

Storm sign two players

NWSK bring home 15 medals from BC’s

COURIER-ISLANDER

The Campbell River Storm continue their busy off-season with the announcement last week of a pair of new signings. Committing to the Storm were defenceman Andy Stevens (98) and forward Tyler Welsh (97) for the upcoming 2014-15 Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League season. Both players are coming to the Storm from the prestigious College School Sport Hockey League, playing for the Okanagan Hockey Academy and Burnaby Winter Club Academy. Andy, from Campbell River, has played the last two seasons with the Okanagan Hockey Academy, winning the Prep Championship this season with the U18 AAAA Prep team. The 6’2” foot, 185 pound player recorded 27 points in 45 regular season games, and also added five assists in three wins during the College School Sport Hockey League playoffs. Stevens’ stellar two year run with the Academy was highlighted last season by a draft selection to the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League. Andy is most excited about returning home to play. “The opportunity to come back home and play at the Brindy in front of the large hometown crowds,” said Stevens. “I expect to provide a strong defensive game as well as contributing offensively as much as I can to the team and improve enough to play in the BCHL or WHL in the future.” Welsh, from Whistler, recently served as the captain for the Burnaby Winter Club U18 AAAA Prep team where the 5’8” foot, 160 pound player led the team in scoring with 12 goals, 16 assists and 28 points in 22 games played, as well as adding two goals and two assists in three playoff games. Storm general manager and head coach Lee Stone was quite pleased with the recent commitments. “Many junior teams across BC recruited both Andy and Tyler and we are very excited that they both choose the Storm program to develop not only on the ice as hockey players but off it as young men,” said Stone.

The Northwest Shito Kai Karate (NWSK) competitive team was at the Richmond Olympic Oval for the 40th Annual Karate BC Provincial Championships. The event drew over 500 athletes from all over the province and NWSK did Campbell River proud. Fourteen NWSK athletes had an incredible showing finishing eighth overall, out of the 50 plus clubs who were in attendance, with several personal bests achieved, not to mention an impressive medal count of 15 which included four gold, four silver and seven bronze. Gracie Dashkewytch, in the girl’s 8-9 age group intermediate kata (synchronized forms) division, won a gold medal. In the kata event, performances are decided by judges holding red and blue flags while the athletes do their routines simultaneously, each athlete wearing either a red or blue belt. At the end of the performance the judges then vote on their athlete of choice and the majority vote wins and moves forward. Dashkewytch had three matches in her group of 14 and each match she won decisively with never a flag against her. This was her third Provincial championship and her first Provincial title. Wyatt Ramos fought his way to a silver medal in the boy’s 8-9 intermediate kumite division with 14 other competitors. He was challenged each round but was able to come out on top in three of his four bouts loosing the gold medal match by only one point. The NWSK kata team of Alexander Movold, Jenna Scott and Kyle Barnes finished first out of 12 squads with a stellar performance and some of the highest

scores awarded in the tournament. Movold also competed in the boy’s 10-11 advanced kumite and kata divisions where his whole hearted efforts earned him two bronze medals. This was Movold’s fifth Provincial championships and his best performance to date. Ethan Gauthier earned himself a silver medal in the boy’s 7 and under all belts division after loosing a close match to his final opponent from Vancouver. Zachary Rosenthal came out on top in both of his events earning Provincial gold medals in the men’s 1720 kumite and kata divisions. This was Rosenthal’s first Provincial championship and only his third competition in his karate career. “Zach is an athlete with great talent and potential, he is definitely a hopeful for team BC one day,” said NWSK sensei Nigel Nikolaisen. Other medalists from team NWSK include: Emry Clark, bronze boy’s kumite 7 and under; Barnes bronze boy’s 10-11 advanced kata; Scott silver girl’s 8-9 advanced kumite, silver 11 and under weapons kata and bronze individual kata; Liam Gauthier bronze 11 and under weapons kata. Other NWSK team members who had brilliant performances but just missed the medal podium were: Nolan Field 8-9 novice kata and 11 and under team kata; Quinton Darcy 8-9 novice kata and 11 and under team kata; Owen Tomlinson 7 and under kumite; Nolan Barnes 8-9 intermediate kata and kumite. Team NWSK is now focused on preparing for the 2014 Shito Ryu Pan American Championships which will be held in Cancun, Mexico Aug. 9-10.

What do you get when you mix some veteran loggers and some junky old cars? A Car Tossing competition. Saratoga Speedway hosted its annual Car Tossing competition on Saturday. Four loggers from Fearless Logging competed to see who could throw a car the farthest.

Take a Mile High ride this summer on Mount Washington COURIER-ISLANDER

The lingering snow from last winter is giving way to the grassy slopes of summer on Mount Washington. To celebrate, the mountain is running their popular scenic chairlift rides earlier than originally planned. The first chair ascended the mountain Saturday. “We’re operating the Eagle Chairlift for scenic rides over the next two weekends,” explains Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “Our wedding season is already underway so we’re opening earlier than expected to give people an opportunity to see the amazing views from the top of Mount Washington.” Visitors will be able to take the chairlift to top of the mountain from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Ted’s Bar and Grill will also

be open for meals from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. Daily summer operations begin Saturday, June 28, and will feature Mile High Scenic Chairlift Rides, Alpine Action Packs, alpine hiking, dining and shopping, seven days a week. The Mile High Scenic Chairlift Rides are one of Vancouver Island’s most popular summer attractions and the views are literally second to none. Snow play areas and the potential to get glimpses of the elusive Vancouver Island Marmot are additional highlights of the ride up the mountain. Mount Washington’s Tapped Beer Festival, Alpine Wine and Food Festival and Bearclaw Invitational Slopestyle return for action-packed summer fun. For more info on the early weekend openings, and the full summer schedule, visit mountwashington.ca.

Teachers won’t be at Robron grad night SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

T

he Robron graduation ceremony is on Thursday but there won’t be any teachers in attendance. In a message sent for publication in the CourierIslander, Campbell River Teachers’ Association President Elaine Thompson offered congratulations and condolences. “Congratulations Robron graduates,” she wrote. “We are filled with joy because of you and your accomplishments. We are deeply saddened and regret that your grad ceremony falls on a day when

we are on strike so we are unable to attend. We are grieving that we cannot be with you. Best wishes for continued success and learning.” According to Public Relations representative for School District 72, Jennifer Patrick, the school district will not turn any teacher away from attending grad ceremonies. “The district is planning to proceed with formal graduation ceremonies and teachers are still welcome to participate as this is considered outside of the BC Public School Employers’ Association lockout,” said Tom Long-

ridge, Superintendant of Schools. “It will be at the discretion of individual teachers and the Campbell River District Teachers’ Association if teachers choose to participate or not. At this time, we have not received indication from the Campbell River District Teachers’ Association what their directive to teachers will be.” The School District has said that prom and after grad events are parentorganized and run, and to their knowledge, are proceeding as scheduled. “The BC Public School Employers’ Association has made an application

to the Labour Relations Board to have Grade 10-12 exams and report cards deemed essential services,” said Longridge. “The Labour Relations Board ruling, which is expected this week, and the BC Teachers’ Federation’s next steps with regards to

the strike will determine how the district will proceed with managing the administration of provincial exams. The situation is extremely fluid right now and can change dayto-day as we await word on whether there will be a full-scale strike, when it

may be scheduled to begin, and the Labour Relations Board ruling regarding exams and report cards.” Longridge said he continues to be hopeful that an agreement will be reached and that students can return to normal school operations.

Our dog is kept on a strict weight-control diet. That usually makes for a lot of “happy dancing” at feeding time. On one particular Sunday, we went out and met some friends for a late lunch/early dinner. When we got back, it was feeding time and I went ahead and gave our chocolate Lab, Bandit, his evening allotment of food. It was then that I noticed that Bandit wasn’t eating but was just standing there looking down at his bowl.

Now...you have to understand that Bandit has always been a vacuum cleaner, he didn’t chew his food and he certainly didn’t taste it, he just sucked it in. Full bowl to empty bowl in 5 seconds or less. For Bandit to be off his food at once was definitely a reason to be seriously concerned. He was just standing there not even taking a mouthful...then...I noticed something a bit off...Bandit looked a little full around the middle...in fact he downright looked like a German sausage! An idea crossed my mind and I headed to the utility room. Yup...sliding door to the closet is open and half of a new 20 pound bag of dog food is missing! Wow - that meant that Bandit had consumed over 10 pounds of dog food in 3 hours! I figured I had better call the vet. Once the vet stopped laughing he assured me that everything should be fine but not to offer any food to Bandit for the next 24 hours. He also warned me to be prepared for phase two. Innocent me...I asked what is phase two??? After he stopped laughing again all he said was...”What goes in must come out!” He was right. Over the next couple of days that 10 pounds of dog food transformed in the yard into at least 20 pounds of you know what!!!!

Philosopher’s Cafe is on tonight COURIER-ISLANDER

H

ow do you get your news? Michael McIvor has some thoughts on the changing news delivery business. Do you still subscribe to a newspaper? Do you watch TV news? Perhaps you find your news online? Do you share news with your friends on social media? What information are we exposed to, how we access it and how certain are we that it is accurate? The sources of news and how we access it has changed dramatically over the last decade and these changes are having a profound effect on the quality and diversity of news and information. Michael McIvor, a former foreign correspondent, program host and documentary maker for the CBC, and host of Campbell River’s original Philosophers’ Café has thoughts on the subject he’d like to share. Come to the Philosophers’ Café. Michael will lead off the discussion with a 10-minute introduction then all who attend can join in respectful conversation, or just sit back and listen. You are

From left, Hannah Anderson, Talise Lindenbach and Myles Woodland — puppet masters.

McIvor welcome to propose topics and introduce them at future Cafés. Themes should be of broad interest and national significance, and have an element of controversy to them. The Café is hosted by Peter Schwarzhoff. It’s tonight, Wednesday, June 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the On-Line Gourmet Cafe, the public is invited to join in this free, hour-long conversation. The Café will break for the summer, returning on Sept. 10 with a discussion on Homelessness.

Puppets are ready to entertain

T

he Museum at Campbell River is offering puppet shows this summer! The Museum at Campbell River is launching a delightful new season of puppet shows. Let Captain Vancouver, Fred Nunns, and other quirky characters from Campbell River’s past give you their spin on Campbell River’s most famous moments and stories. Performances will be held in the Museum’s theatre every Tuesday and Thursday at 10:30

a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in July and August, beginning July 3 and ending Aug. 21. The cost is $2 per person, and children ages two and younger are free. Call 250-287-3103 for more information or email summer. programs@crmuseum.ca. Shows are 20 minutes long, and are followed by a craft. Watch for the puppets at Aboriginal Day on Thursday, June 21. Funding for this project has been made possible in part

through a contribution from the Young Canada Works in Heritage Organizations program, Department of Canadian Heritage. The Canadian Museums Association administers the museum component of the YCW program on behalf of the Department of Canadian Heritage. The Museum would also like to acknowledge funding assistance from Service Canada’s Canada Summer Jobs program.
