he suspension bridge over the Elk Falls canyon in Campbell River will be ready to go in August. That was the word from project co-ordinator Lorrie Bewza Thursday night at a BC Hydro stakeholders meeting. The bridge project that began five years ago, along with an all-access viewing platform, is estimated at a cash value of over $2 million, said Bewza. The project, according to a study obtained by the CourierIslander, will generate between $2.5 million and $5 million annually for the local economy. It will be 60 to 80 metres long and hang from 50 to 60 metres above the Campbell River canyon floor offering a top to bottom view of Elk Falls. It is capable of holding 400 300-pound men. A platform beside the suspension bridge will also offer top to bottom views of the falls for the physically challenged. The project was made possible by the Campbell River Noon Rotary Club who infused $75,000

of their annual auction money into the start up. After making the announcement Bewza left the BC Hydro meeting to go to another meeting at which he was inducted as the new president of the Rotary Club. “This isn’t about an individual, not by any means,” said Bewza. “BC Hydro and BC Parks were just great and really made this project happen.

Continued from page 1. “And our Rotary Club has so many diverse levels of expertise that it was simply a real team effort all around and each one of them, and each organization, really deserve all the credit.” As part of the Rotary mandate access to the suspension bridge will be free. Also incorporated into the design will be a conveyor device that will help place spawning gravel into the canyon to help with salmon and steelhead survival. “Without the new parking being provided by

BC Hydro this project would never get off the ground,” added Bewza. Hydro also helped out financially, with a cheque for $150,000 for the project. “The timing of the John Hart project with some of its mitigative works including the proposed new paved access road, parking lot for 80 vehicles, and wheelchair accessible trail connection, all on BC Hydro property, to become the gateway into Elk Falls Park really benefited the Rotary Club’s proposed suspension bridge project,” said

BC Hydro’s Stephen Watson. “These works are part of the project’s wider compensation for the BC Parks Boundary Adjustment. With the parking problem being resolved, a previous barrier to the suspension bridge concept, it set the stage for the Rotary Club to really move forward.” Bewza also said that increasing annual visitor use by a “conservative” 50,000 visits will create 13.9 full time equivalent jobs, and add $115,000 to government tax revenues annually. ncameron@courierislander.com

CITY

Mennie defends his decision to finish term on city council Takes shot at Mayor for his “disdain and disrespect for his fellow councillors” NEIL CAMERON COURIER-ISLANDER

H

e is taking some heat for wanting to finish out his term as councillor via teleconferencing, but city Councillor Ryan Mennie says it’s something he feels very strongly about. Mennie will be moving to Alberta and his decision to stay on council via teleconferencing has drawn criticism, especially from Mayor Walter Jakeway. In a letter to the editor, published here, Mennie not only defends his decision but he takes a pretty hard poke at Jakeway saying the Mayor’s reactions “show our mayor’s disdain and disrespect for his fellow councillors.” Mennie will be paid about $10,700 for the 10 remaining council meetings and five committee of the whole meetings. Here then, is Mennie’s letter: “As a current member of Campbell River city council, I want to explain why I made the decision to remain on council until the end of my term, using video conferencing technology to continue to participate in

The mayor’s comments that question my ethics and morals are baseless, and do nothing but show our mayor’s disdain and disrespect for his fellow councillors.

Island Health responds to EOL bed issue SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

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 endof-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 long-term stay rehab beds. Catherine Mackay, Execu-

tive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Island Health responded to the letter from Puetz. “Island Health is currently planning for the end-of-life and traditional care beds to be located at Yucalta Lodge, owned and operated at Island Health,” she said. “This is why the beds were not included in a request for proposal issued this spring. Island Health is seeking an operator to provide complex care and licensed dementia care that will allow Yucalta to have the capacity to have the committed end of life and transitional beds. Island Health will ensure that the bed base number of community care beds is maintained in Campbell River and is planning to transfer bed for bed any complex care beds

CRIME

Charges laid in November 2013 fatal accident COURIER-ISLANDER

Charges have been laid following a Nov. 26, 2013 two vehicle collision on Highway 19a near Sailor Road. At approximately 10:15 p.m. the Campbell River RCMP along with BC Ambulance and Campbell River Fire Rescue were called to a report of a two vehicle collision. From the initial scene examination it appeared as though a southbound Volvo sedan, driven by a 28 year old Campbell River man, crossed the centre line and struck a north bound Honda sedan, driven by a 59 year old Campbell River man. The resulting collision was very severe and the driver of the Honda was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the Volvo was transported to Campbell River Hospital for treatment then transferred to Victoria.

The highway was closed while police conducted a scene examination assisted by an RCMP Collision Reconstructionist. A lengthy investigation ensued into causes and factors in this collision. A report to Crown Counsel was submitted and three charges have now been laid. Kenneth Spencer Johnston of Campbell River is facing charges of; Impaired Driving Causing Death, Driving with Blood Alcohol Exceeding 80 Milligrams Causing an Accident Resulting in Death, and Dangerous Driving Causing Death. The accused will appear in Campbell River Provincial Court on July 14, 2014. Impaired Driving remains one of the top causes of criminal death in British Columbia. The RCMP will continue in efforts to keep impaired drivers off our roadways.

The start of the summer season will see increased enforcement efforts in this area. If you are planning on drinking, do not drive. Find an alternate way home to

ensure that you and those sharing the road with you arrive at their destination safely. Failing to do so can have tragic consequences as in this incident.

Residents says local dog park needs some tender loving care Andrea Gibbons said she has no issues with the dog park. “It seems well maintained,” she said. “No holes in the chain fencing which would be the biggest issue in my opinion.”

SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

T

hings may have gone to the dogs at the only local dog park in town, but the problem is, you can’t see the dogs for the park. Some users of the Penfield West Dog Park, located at 2090 College Drive, are complaining that the conditions are horrible, grass is overgrown, and upkeep is being neglected. Rachel Owens who lives beside the park said it is not mowed inside and is dusty. “There are often full poop bags hanging in the fence and the gardens area,” she said. “I think it is neglected. It’s not nice.” Dan Grady said his family stopped going to the park on account of the conditions. “Mostly due to people not cleaning up after their dogs, the place was a mess,” he said. “I’ve been there a few times,” said Shale Leech, “but will never return because of the attitudes of the owners and the history of illnesses developed after leaving there.” Lisa Schofield agreed and said she goes only once a year now and it depends on who is there. “I do a drive-by first. It’s never in the summer when I go,” she said. Sharon Hughes who submitted photos of the condition of the park was not sure she was going to make it. “I hope it doesn’t stink today, because the stench yesterday was unbearable,” she said. “The city has failed its furry friends by not maintaining the park,” said Sharon McIntyre, who complained her dogs often get lost in the five-foot tall grass. “There is nothing fun about this park. There are no tunnels or water attractions. All there is is weeds, stumps, sticks, poop and garbage — not an enjoyable spot to bring your furry friends. There is not much grass so the dogs are running around on dirt which now smells horrible. In some spots the grass is five feet high or taller. Come on Campbell River lets make our dog park more enjoyable.” On the other side of the fence, Trish Finnerty whose yard

I would think the dog park is maintained on the same schedule as the Penfield linear park and it’s very well kept,” she said. “Honestly we have two dogs and hardly ever use the park but it’s always busy and at least once a week has a crew mowing.

TEACHERS’ STRIKE

High school provincial exams on schedule SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

Despite the job action by the B.C. teachers, provincial exams, which are required for graduation, are going ahead as previously scheduled. The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association says the following services deemed essential during the teachers’ strike include supervision of provincial exams, provision of final grades for Grade 12 students no later than June 20, carrying out all tests scheduled to determine if a stu-

dent should receive special needs designation, and provision of all information needed to confirm or discontinue the designation for students in the intensive/serious mental illness category for the 2014-15 school year. Beginning on Wednesday (June 18) and continuing to June 24, Grade 10, 11 and 12 students will be provided a picket free access to the schools.

Campbell River filmmaker wins National gold SIAN THOMSON COURIER-ISLANDER

Carihi graduate Michael Stevantoni is heading stateside to pursue his dream of being a motion picture director. This big move comes after winning the National Gold Medal for filmmaking in the Skills Canada competition earlier this month in Toronto. Stevantoni won gold in the regional competition held on the Sunshine Coast, where he was given five hours to make a film around the theme of “It’s a whole new world”. The teams cannot bring any actors with them or many props, they have to use basically what they see around them. Stevantoni interviewed someone there who had come to Canada from Vietnam and talked about the differences in the culture, climate and people. He won gold at the provincial competition in Abbotsford when he was given six hours to make a film about how every-

thing you put on-line effects your personal brand; how do you want to be remembered? It won gold and he was on his way to the Nationals in Toronto. “We had 12 hours to come up with a film and could choose between three topics; romance, musical, or western,” said Stevantoni. “It’s not what we were expecting, and I was definitely not expecting to take gold on this one.” He chose romance and made film about a break up with the girl on his team doing all the acting. “I was really intimidated because I knew of the other work of people there and some of them had some pretty amazing equipment with them,” he said. “Winning the gold was hugely exciting and shocking at the same time. It’s like a dream.” Ever since he saw a bronze sculpture of a man with a movie camera at Universal

Studios when he was 11, Stevantoni knew he wanted to me that man. “So my grandparents bought me a camera for Christmas that year,” Stevantoni said. Stevantoni has received great inspiration and support from his grandmother, Diana Stevan, whose movie and television credits include parts on The Outer Limits, The X-Files, The Commish, Neon Rider and Madison. The Courier-Islander has featured Stevantoni as far back as 2010 when he has won award after award, recognizing his film work that has gone from making “little films with Lego” as a child to contracting out music composers and special effects technicians from Vancouver. Two short films have premiered at the Caprice 5 Showcase Cinemas in Merecroft Village. Now the Carihi grad is

Northern Gateway pipeline good for Canada

A

s most expected, the federal government announced its conditional approval to Enbridge’s proposal to build the Northern Gateway pipeline on Tuesday. Enbridge must still meet 209 conditions in order to build the $7 billion project that would send northern Alberta bitumen through to a new super-tanker port at Kitimat. And, of course, there’s the litany of opponents who were quick to issue their own pronouncements against the pipeline, including promises to fight the development with all their might. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has made no secret of his government’s financial vision for Canada, the backbone of which is transporting Alberta crude to one of three coasts for shipment overseas. Energy East, which would head from Alberta eastward through Quebec to New Brunswick on the Atlantic Ocean, the

Keystone XL Pipeline through the central United States to the Gulf of Mexico and Northern Gateway are major planks in this administration’s future economic platform. Immediately, NDP leader Thomas Mulcair and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau vowed that Northern Gateway would not happen should either of them form government in 2015. Many First Nations officials also objected, though a secondary proposal to construct the pipeline by the Aquilini Group and Eagle Spirit Energy, comprised of several First Nations, was brought forward in April. Thus the battle lines are drawn. We know what the next election will be focused on. It is reminiscent of former Progressive Conservative Prime Minister Brian Mulroney’s second national election victory in 1988. With his personal popularity in

decline, Mulroney successfully earned a second majority government behind the campaign’s major issue: Free trade. Without question, the 2015 election will be fought over Northern Gateway. A vote for the Conservatives is a vote for the pipeline. A vote for the NDP or Liberals is a vote against. Interestingly enough, most political pundits agree that provincial NDP leader Adrian Dix effectively blew last year’s election over his mid-stump pronouncement against the twinning of Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline to Vancouver. It is strongly believed that Dix lost the support of his traditional labour support instantly — not surprising since an increasing number of them find their employ with natural gas extraction companies. Online polling is a dubious marker of true public opinion,

and increasingly becomes an unreliable gauge of true public sentiment. Recent elections have proven that. With professional fundraisers, an influx of financial backing from the U.S. and mediasavvy special interest groups involved, it is very difficult to determine if the majority of British Columbians are for or against this pipeline. We will hear much about it, for and against, in the next year and a half, and then it’s off to the polls. There is much at stake, including the jobs of many Vancouver Islanders. This is Canadian oil, producing Canadian jobs, paying for Canadian health care, Canadian education, Canadian benefits, Canadian infrastructure and the Canadian lifestyle that is second to none in the world. The pipeline vote is about our future. Vancouver Island NewsMedia Group

Absentee councillor not good for Campbell River The poll in Wednesday’s Courier Islander asked “Do you think it’s okay for Ryan Mennie to maintain his council seat while living in Alberta?” Result 98% said no and only 2% said yes! I agree, I wish Mennie well in his new endeavour. The citizens of Campbell River will get over the fact that the council will be one down but no way should we be paying for an absentee councillor. I have never heard of anything so ridiculous. Go with our blessing Coun. Mennie but not with our tax dollars. Jane Davies Campbell River (Editor’s note: At the time of publishing the results of the poll it was indeed 98% against Coun. Mennie staying on. However, there was a late push on the poll after the results were in, taking the yes side from 2% to around 27%. Further, the city would not have to hold an election to replace him. That would only be required if a year or more was left in his term.)

Roses&Thorns camping site full of thorns to the person or persons who stole my tent at Stella Bay. We drive a small neon so when we go camping we have to make a couple trips with all our things. We set up our tent and chairs and other camping supplies at Stella Bay hoping for a nice Father’s Day camp out and went back in to town. Imagine the look on my 11-year-old’s face when we came back and all our stuff was gone. Not only did you steal our tent, chairs, axe, kitchen set and tarps, but you stole my faith in people. True campers respect the belongings of other campers and would never think about stealing. Shame on you, do you think what you did was okay? Well it is not but you will not stop my family from enjoying our fun. We will somehow rebuild our camping supplies and you will find us at the lake this summer. Determined

Liberal government attacks again The teachers’ strike has brought into focus what many of us in the labour movement already know — unions and public services are under attack by our provincial government. They have been under attack for the past decade, in fact. This coincides with my years of service as an education assistant in School District 72. I have consistently seen workloads increase and funding decrease. I’ve seen the lines between home, social services and our education system blur. I’ve seen wait times for assessments increase and leave teachers and students without funding, meaning precious intervention time lengthens. I’ve seen an increase in students with complex behavioural and cognitive challenges. I’ve seen the paper

trail explode with more and more of teachers’ time spent filling out forms and reports. I’ve seen funding formulas change and leave school boards scrambling to find sufficient funds. Despite all this, I’ve seen the staff behind school walls give kids everything they’ve got and continue to bring out the best and make a difference in students’ lives. The teachers’ strike is an opportunity for us to put our values in order. Something our government has clearly lost sight of. Collectively, most people believe every child deserves a right to an education regardless of their family’s financial circumstance. In order to do this, adequate funding must be budgeted for and provided. It’s interesting to note that many

private schools now receive as much as 50 per cent of their funding from public education money. It appears our government would like to move away from public funded education to private and create a two- tiered system. The BCTF has tried to sit at the table to bargain a new contract with the employer. When it became clear there was no interest in restoring class size and composition as ruled twice by the Supreme Court of BC, the BCTF had no choice but to begin job action. Let’s be clear. No one WANTS to go on strike. Andrea Craddock President Campbell River, Courtenay & District Labour Council

T

he Campbell River Arts Council would like to send roses to all of the photographers who entered the Arts Council’s Seventh Annual Photo Show. The theme this year was ‘Images of Home: Why We Love to Live Here’. We received 75 entries. Of these, 22 were chosen to be displayed at the Sybil Andrews Cottage. The winner for Best in Show went to Kathy Paynter for “The Spit.” The photo was seen as containing multiple layers, inclusive of Campbell River’s history, geography and atmospheric light. Ruth McMonagle’s

“Awake My Soul and Sing” won The People’s Choice award. And two Honourable Mentions were awarded: Nicole Girard for “Breton Islands” and Jan Sandholm for “Saratoga Beach.” The Arts Council would like to give more roses to our sponsors PhotoTech (on Shoppers Row) and PJ’s Art Supplies (in Willow Point) for donating the prizes for the Best in Show and People’s Choice Awards. Without the support of local businesses this show would have not been so successful.

Station View Trail will be closed Monday New route and bridge will offer excellent vantage point of John Hart Replacement Project works NEIL CAMERON COURIER-ISLANDER

N

ext week will be a big week for the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project. First of all, the Station View Trail will be closed from June 23 through to about mid-August. The Canyon View Trail will remain open during this time. Crews will begin Monday constructing a pedestrian bridge spanning the footings of all three surge towers. The bridge will be part of the detour path on the Canyon View Trail while construction takes place. Contractor InPower BC will also be doing more preparatory works next week to enable the construction of the two underground portals that will go down to the new tunnel and generating station. “The Station View Trail will be closed as its current alignment goes through that construction area, so the contractor needs to build a new section of trail to maintain its flow through the John Hart property site and provide safety to the public during the construction phase,” said BC Hydro spokesperson, Stephen Watson. The trail will be re-routed along the top of a plateau that leads to the pipelines immediately below the surge towers, eventually connecting into the Millennium Trail and Canyon View Trail. “The trail is designed well but it’s the bridge crossing over the pipelines that should get all the public attention,” said Watson. “The vantages will be excellent, and we hope it’s well received by the trail users. The bridge will be made of wood and will go across the three con-

InPower BC’s rendering of the new pedestrian crossing going across three pipelines at the base of the three surge towers. To the right in the photo would take you down to the generating station. The bridge crossing makes a temporary connection to the Canyon View Trail. crete anchor blocks in place for each pipeline. There are only two sets of stairs to get past the pipelines versus going up and down six times to get across all three individually. Three interpretive signs will be along the lookout platform. ALSJV, one of the InPower BC subcontractors, has worked out a nice design that will be built by carpenters.” People will be able to get a sense of just how high those 90 metre tall white tow-

ers are, look downstream over the generating station to the Campbell River, and be able to look up the pipeline corridor and see the construction activity. But the view will be for a limited time only. Around 2018, the pipelines will be removed, two of the three surge towers will be gone, and the generating station will be taken down to the ground level. Before that happens, the Station View Trail will need to be rerouted again, probably two times.

CITY COUNCIL

Some sobering advice given NEIL CAMERON COURIER-ISLANDER

City Councillor Andy Adams had some sobering advice at Tuesday’s council meeting for Paul Mason of Campbell River Family services. Mason had written a letter to council asking that city council send a letter of support for a project called the ‘Hub’. The project, by Campbell River Family Services and the Housing Resource Centre, is for funding to renovate a building donated to the group by School District 72 for a Sobering Assessment Centre. Mason said council’s letter would be

included with many other letters of support that are being sent to request the funding from BC Rural Remote Homelessness Strategy. But the proof is always in the details and Adams expressed concern that council was being asked to endorse something that had very few details attached to it. “We don’t know where it is, we don’t know what it is we don’t know what the plan is and we don’t know what the involvement of the city is,” said Adams. “It would have been a lot more helpful if there was more information provided with this proposal.”

Councillor Ryan Mennie agreed with Adams, but said he would be okay with a letter of support because of the possible benefits of a sobering centre. “I have the similar concerns of Councillor Adams, but am in support of the overall concept,” said Mennie. “A sobering centre is a key piece to easing some of our social issues that are brought up for discussion in our crime reduction strategy. It’s a piece that helps take care of some folks in our community who wouldn’t necessarily be served properly by being brought to the detachment.”

City staff looking at publishing council expenses COURIER-ISLANDER

Campbell River city staff will be investigating publishing itemized council expenses for food, travel, and accommodations. The motion was made by Councillor Andy Adams, with the lone objector

being Mayor Walter Jakeway. Adams also wants expenses for council-related assignment and affiliations such as Strathcona Regional District, Comox Strathcona Regional slid Waste Committee, Comox Strathcona Regional Hospital Board, Vancouver Island Regional Library Board, the Union of

BC Municipalities and the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Jakeway said he objected to the motion because he felt it wasn’t necessary because councillors and the mayor sees everyone expenses anyway and that the amount wasn’t worth the effort it might take for regular postings.

Killer Whales Cianna Dunn set an AGN standard in the 200m butterfly at the Island Regionals in Nanaimo.

Connor Hall will be playing on the U13 Team BC this weekend in Spokane.

Hall named to Team BC KEN ZAHARIA COURIER-ISLANDER

At the tender young age of 12, Connor Hall has already made Campbell River Minor Baseball Association (CRMBA) history. Hall became the first ever player from the CRMBA, as well as the North Island, to be selected to a provincial squad as he’ll suit up for U13 Team BC for the prestigious Best in the Northwest Tournament, being held this weekend in Spokane, Wa.

Hall was one of 13 players selected out of more than 120 that tried out for Team BC. To make the final cut Hall went through three tryout camps. The first was at the beginning of May in Nanaimo. He was then selected to go to the John Main Tournament later in May and from there he was asked to come back to a final tryout game in Ladner on May 30. In that final selection game there were 28 players divided into two See Baseball on page 20.

Killer Whales swim to best times at Islands KEN ZAHARIA COURIER-ISLANDER

The Campbell River Killer Whales Swim Club (CRKW) headed to Nanaimo for the Vancouver Island Regional Championships last weekend. “In similar fashion to the rest of the season, they made everyone take notice with their fast swimming and loud cheering,” said Killer Whales head coach Darryl Rudolf. Thirty six Killer Whales took part on the weekend ranging in age and experience from eightyear-old rookies to 20-year-old veterans of the sport. “Senior (Killer Whales) swim-

mers, Connor Milligan and Taylor Padington did a great job being leaders and making sure that all the younger swimmers were part of every cheer and excited for every race,” said Rudolf. “Some of the stars of the meet were Sophia Simard and Kira Dunn making their VIR debut and going best times in every race.” Simard took off over 20 seconds in her 200m freestyle, while Dunn took off time in all of her swims and swam up on the older girls relay teams all weekend. Brendan Kobayashi and Carson Dunn were the standout Killer Whales boys, with

Kobayashi winning two medals in the 100m butterfly and 200m butterfly both in season best times. Dunn won three gold and four silver medals in the 10 and under category. CRKW had a bunch of swimmers that achieved new qualifying standards on the weekend: Lilan Forsyth AAA standard 200m backstroke, Maya Ruehlen AAA standard 800m free, Jenna Beaudin AGN standard 400m IM, Melayna Beaudin AGN standard 200m backstroke and 100m backstroke, Cianna Dunn AGN standard 200m butterfly and Jasmine Skuse AGN standard 400 IM.

Peewee Ravens run over Port Alberni COURIER-ISLANDER

On Saturday, at Strathcona Gardens, Dick’s Fish & Chips Peewee C Ravens faced Port Alberni in their final Vancouver Island Peewee C Lacrosse League regular season game. Port Alberni fought hard but the high flying offence of the Ravens was too much as Dick’s Fish & Chips brought it home with a 12 -4 win. The win placed the Ravens in a tie with Saanich for first place at

28 points on the year each with 13-2-1 records. Unfortunately due to Saanich having a better record against the Ravens, their only loss all year, Saanich placed first. The Ravens will now be carrying on to the playoffs starting this weekend with a game in Fuller Lake Saturday against Saanich, and a game Sunday in Fuller Lake against Vic –Esquimalt. At stake on the weekend is a berth to Provincials in mid July.

Biking - the easy way to exercise Every week at the shop I see James Durand someone who just wants to My Spin On get some exercise. They don’t Your Ride want to become a racer or hard core mountain biker and they don’t care who is favoured in the Tour de France this year. They are just looking for a nice way to gain some fitness, maybe loose a few pounds and add some years to their life. Well they came to the perfect spot…a bike shop. If you’re looking to get a bit more active, but are not the work out in a gym type, or can’t stand the constant pounding of running, then a bike is a great option for you. Riding a bike is an easy way to exercise. It increases muscle tone, improves your cardio and eats up calories quickly. Plus you’re outside, and there is zero impact on your joints. Is it expensive? Like anything it can be, but considering a gym membership is around $500 a year, and quality runners are in the $150 to $200 range, $500-600 is relatively cheap to get into a good bike and a helmet. Your bike should last you many years and once you have the equipment, it’s free to ride. Now depending on your style you can chose a bike strictly for road, strictly for dirt, or something that crosses over to either. There are sizes for everyone, and a professional bike shop will help you choose the bike that fits you and suits your needs. Some riders like to pick a route and make a workout of it, while others prefer to just use their bike for transportation with a couple days of commuting to work or riding to get a coffee every morning. If you get out on your bike a couple times a week,

even for a casual ride, you will quickly realize the benefits. The weight loss and stronger heart are the obvious ones, but reduced stress, increased stamina and even improved coordination are all great bonuses…and ladies, the fresh air and a bit of perspiration will give you a smoother complexion. Are you convinced this is a good idea yet? If not then look at all those kids riding around the neighbourhoods smiling and laughing, it must be a good thing! So, if you’re thinking its time to get a bit more fitness, or you’re having joint issues and need a low impact activity, then check out some bikes and plan for a ride or two each week. You’ll never look back. I’m James Durand and I’m Goin’ Ridin’.

Run the Rock ready to roll on Texada Island From an eight-kilometre race which is more downhill than up, to a seriously-challenging 42.2kilometre marathon, considered by experts as the toughest road marathon in Canada, Run the Rock on Texada Island has something for everyone. The fourth annual Texada marathon, halfmarathon and eight-kilometre running or walking event, which takes place Aug. 24, is attracting athletes from newbie walkers to veteran runners. Race co-director Rob McWilliam says that returning runners tell him that Texada’s marathon course lives up to the island’s “tough as rock” theme. “While the hilly terrain does present a challenge, Run the Rock gets rave reviews from most participants who want a serious race and major bragging rights.” Ken Barton, also race co-director, says one of the things that makes Run the Rock such a great experience is the warm welcome that the athletes get when they take part. “Many residents volunteer every year to support the runners. They make the event fun with things like costumes, music or funny signs at water stations, plus there’s great interaction at the finish line at Shelter Point Park,” said Barton. Barton adds that the support from the business community “is fantastic.” Sponsors this year include the Texada Arts, Culture and Tour-

ism Society (TACT), First Credit Union, Lafarge Canada and the Powell River Regional District. Other businesses provide in-kind contributions. McWilliam says the coveted flower rock marathon finishers’ medals will be presented again this year, along with limestone finishers medals for the halfmarathon and certificates for the eight-kilometre event. Registration is only $40 until mid-August, when the price rises to $60. For the eight-kilometre event, the fee is $15 for an individual or $20 for a family. Visit www.runtexada.ca to register or find more information. Holding an event like Run the Rock on an island presents extra challenges, says McWilliam, who has himself participated in 143 marathon races. These include ferry rate increases and schedule changes. The full marathon starts at 7 a.m., requiring participants to spend the night at one of Texada’s B&Bs, vacation rentals, predator-free campgrounds or the hotel, which offers a marathon rate. The halfmarathon and eight-kilometre races start at 10:30 a.m., adjusted for the new weekend ferry schedule. Pick-up and drop-off services from the ferry terminal are available, so participants can walk on the ferry for the 35-minute ride from Powell River. In previous years, runners have come from as far away as Germany, Mexico and eastern United States.

Baseball from page 19. teams and from there Hall gained a berth on Team BC. Hall will be mostly playing second base, centre field and catcher, but will also do some pitching. The Best in the Northwest Tournament has eight divisions, from U9 to U16.

Each division has 12 teams. Hall has been playing baseball with CRMBA since he was six, under the coaching guidance of his dad Clayton Hall who himself had a storied baseball career playing at the senior men’s provincial level.

Piercy tops Storey play KEN ZAHARIA COURIER-ISLANDER

There’s still hope for the ‘seasoned seniors’ as Ken Piercy won low gross in Storey Creek Men’s Club play Wednesday with a one under par 35. Piercy actually won on a count back with Storey Creek course record holder Chris Johnson who also finished with a 35. Johnson, now in his 20’s, set the record of nine under par 63 back when he was a teenager. Staying on the ‘seasoned’ theme

Golden U14 girls 2nd time around KEN ZAHARIA COURIER-ISLANDER

In their first ever beach volleyball tournament Campbell River’s Cassidy Hermanson and Sophia Johnson played their way to a bronze medal finish. It seems the first time around the two Grade 8 students were honing their skills as they claimed the gold medal at the Sand Series #1 Girl’s U14 Beach Volleyball Tournament in Parksville on the weekend. The dynamic duo only lost one

set in round robin play. In their semifinal match Hermanson and Johnson were easy 21-3, 21-9 winners. The gold medal match was a tense affair against a Victoria team which featured one six-foot tall 14-year-old girl. Hermanson and Johnson dropped the opening set 21-19 and then rebounded to win set two 21-15. Victoria looked to have set three and the title in the bag leading 12-8, but Johnson served seven straight points for the 15-12 Campbell River gold medal win.

The Local started in 1951 and at the height of employment they were 200 plus members and in 2010 when CATALYST Paper decided to permanently close the mill there were 50 members, but that didn’t change the way the members of Chinook Local 630 felt about the community in which they lived and worked. Our union has a proud tradition of supporting our members, not just bargaining for wages and benefits, but also in helping to create a safe working environment and assisting them whether on or off the job. In that spirit the former members continue to support various charities and bursaries in Campbell River and the Comox Valley.

Eagles auxiliary become Gold champions S

eeing the remarkable transformation that a mentor can make in a young person’s life is the reason that the Fraternal Order of Eagles Ladies Auxiliary have sponsored a Campbell River girl to participate in the KidStart Mentoring Program for the third year in a row. “People helping people is our motto, and supporting KidStart through a Gold Champion sponsorship is one of the best ways we can do that,” says Marlene Jordan, Eagles Catering Chairwoman. The Ladies Auxiliary members volunteer countless hours every year to do catering and other fundraising events and then donate the proceeds to causes they believe in. “We know just how important KidStart is to a child and their family, and have seen how it has redirected the little girl’s life we sponsor, with a lasting positive impact, and it feels great to be a part of it,” says Jordan. When asked about how things are going with her daughter and her mentor, Desiree* (mom of 12- yearold Sarah*), says: “It’s going so amazingly well, and it’s such a neat match. My daughter always used to give in to peer pressure and I used to worry about her being a follower.

she can create in her life. Being with Sarah helps me to see the world through a different perspective, and I am always rewarded by our friendship, the energy she shares, and the bond we’ve created.” For information about volunteering

Amanda* has helped her to find her strengths, confidence, independence, and ability to check in with herself. She’s like a different kid now, so full of selfesteem and knowledge of herself, and I’m so thankful to KidStart that she has Amanda in her life.” KidStart is a volunteerbased mentoring program offered by The John Howard Society of North Island (JHSNI). This award winning program connects vulnerable children and youth

ages six to 18 with positive adult role models in Campbell River and the Comox Valley. They currently have over 100 children waiting for mentors, so if you have three hours a week to share with a child baking cookies, walking the dog, or playing board games, you could consider this rewarding volunteer opportunity. “I love spending time with Sarah,” says Amanda.

“Being her mentor enables me to support a younger person to see her potential and the opportunities

Is it better to appoint one Executor or two Co-Executors? Both options have advantages and disadvantages. If you appoint Co-Executors it may work well if both Executors cooperate with each other, contribute their knowledge and support the difficult decision making. Many of my clients have commented that this option worked well for them. However, if the Co-Executors don’t like each other, don’t communicate well, or have personality issues, then it could cause delays and be costly for the estate. Appointing one suitable Executor is the most commonly used option. Under this option, your sole Executor will be responsible for making all decisions on behalf of your estate. The decisions can be made quickly without the necessity of having other people agree to them. The disadvantage of appointing only one Executor may be if you do want to appoint your children as your Executors, but none of them are fully suitable. Further, he/she may not communicate with the beneficiaries, causing disputes in the family. The decision to appoint a sole Executor or Co-Executors depends on the capabilities of the individuals you are considering as Executor.

Shellfish, seafood celebration on Saturday COURIER-ISLANDER

T

ickets are still available but going fast for the signature event, Comox by the Sea Shellfish and Seafood Celebration, which gets underway at noon and runs to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 21.

On hand will be several top names in the culinary scene of BC: Nathan Fong of Global TV’s Saturday Chefs and Shaw TV’s The Rush, Quang Dang of Vancouver’s West Restaurant, David Sider of Tofino’s Wickaninnish Inn and Don Genova, chef, author

and CBC food columnist — who will be showing their incredible talent, tricks and skills in cooking demos throughout the afternoon. The chefs will also be available following their demos to answer questions and share cooking

tips along with the judges including food columnist Cinda Chavich and Chef Aaron Rail. Genova’s, Food Artisans of Vancouver Island book, will also be available for the culinary traveller. The book, containing no less than 18 local food producers, is once again on the Vancouver Sun’s Best of BC list. Two of the most highly anticipated competitions of the Festival will also be taking centre stage: Fanny Bay Oyster Shucking Competition and the Annual Chowder Challenge, with notable competitors including Billy D’s Pub, Tee Box Comox, Prime Chophouse, Beez Kneez and Red 22 Tap and Grill. If watching all that shucking and cooking makes you a little hungry, stop by the Beez Kneez Catering tasting station to get a $5 noodle box with hand-peeled shrimp! Or have some out-of-thisworld gluten-free deep

fried oysters (supplied by Mac’s Oysters) from West Coast Mobile’s booth. If you’re looking for a beverage to accent the outstanding seafood check out VI Brewery’s station, which will have a few of their favorite beers on special, including the Beach Comber and the Island Lager, both chosen for their amazing pairing with seafood. Interactive booths will also provide plenty of hands-on discoveries from the lifecycle of west coast indigenous marine species to tours of one of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans marine vessels, touch tanks to face painting. Sue Medley and The Back Road Band will also be on site performing from her new album, These are the Days, to round out an exciting afternoon. So get out and watch the chefs, meet the judges, taste the food, touch the creatures, enjoy the great location, and learn more in

a few hours about seafood and shellfish than most come to know in their entire lives. With more than 20 sponsors, loads of tasting stations and interactive booths, this day will last in every guests memory for a very long time. Tickets are $15 per person, and children age 10 and under being free. Food tasting tickets $1 each. One can buy tickets online at www.discovercomoxvalley. com or call 1-855-400-2882. The event will be held at Filberg lodge and park. Park and ride service with Ambassador Shuttle is available between 11:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. from Galardi Academy School, 1475 Noel Ave, Comox. Funds raised from the celebration event will go towards the new training initiative called the Aquaculture Technician Program, at North Island College, which supports a holistic approach to aquaculture training.

Stay Within Your Limits!

Remember, there are regulations that limit how close you can build to your property line for fire and safety reasons and to promote good neighbour relations. Most residential side yard setbacks are 1.5m (5 ft) from the house and 0.75m (2.5 ft) to sheds, garages and decks to the property line. QUESTIONS: Come in to City Hall and talk with the Land Use Services staff about your project or call us at 250-286-5726.
