‘Numerous inquiries’ for downtown development By Neil Cameron Campbell River Courier-Islander The city of Campbell River may double tax exemptions and reduce Development Cost Charges for downtown developments while streamlining the process for applications at the same time. In a report to council Tuesday night city staff say they have received “numerous inquiries in regards to various downtown development opportunities” and have found the current process to be “confusing.” The report said that confusion may deter possible development in the city’s downtown. The proposal put before council suggested increasing the tax exemption on developments from 50 per cent to 100 per cent and increasing the exemption period from three years to five years. The plan also called for lowering Development Cost Charges for downtown developments. “Adding the additional tax incentive to redevelop this concentrated area will assist in the creation of a more attractive and vibrant downtown,” states the staff report. “Through the enhanced tax incentive program and city infrastructure investment, the city can work with private investment to improve the vitality of the area for residents and tourists alike.” It has been no big secret that the city is focusing on downtown development, particularly high density residential. The goal is to make the downtown more vibrant and possibly even to a 24-hour activity level. Continued on page 2.

Downtown...

Continued from page 1. “Increasing residential buildings in the downtown core has several key benefits including, more efficient use of existing infrastructure, and increased population in the downtown to promote a 24-hour city centre thereby increasing business visibility and viability, and provides needed housing close to amenities,” said the report. The city has developed two specific tax exemption areas in the downtown. One is the special commercial area roughly bordered by St. Ann’s, Shoppers Row and 11th Avenue, of which the new Seymour Pacific office buildings area is a part of. The other is a larger general tax exemption area bordered roughly by Dogwood, and the waterfront from Robert’s Reach to 6th Avenue. The staff report also pointed out the proposed improvements to the bylaw would not decrease current tax levels. The tax exemptions would act almost as money in the bank and will flow more revenue to the city once the tax exemption periods expire. ncameron@courierislander.com

The new Seymour Pacific head quarter office building in Campbell River had its first forms going up recently. And the city could see more such projects as they were to look at an aggressive tax exemption program for further downtown developments at last night’s council meeting.

Telus warns of scammers

Telus is warning people about a surge in a common phone scam. The company says it is working to protect its customers from the fraudulent phone calls, which are affecting wireless and land line customers including businesses, primarily in B.C. and Alberta. The latest scam involves ‘spoofing’, where a fraudster re-programs the caller ID signal to make it appear they are calling from a legitimate business, claiming to represent that organization. When someone picks up the scam call, the imposter on the other end of the line claims to be Telus or another well-known organization, saying the person they called has won a prize. Other variants of the scam ask you to press 1 to receive a prize. The imposter will then try to convince the person they’ve called to hand over personal information and credit card numbers in order to collect the alleged prize. This

Consumers should never enter their credit card information when prompted to by an unknown caller or automated call. Telus recommends customers simply hang up if they receive a call. Telus is also urging people not give out personal information over the phone unless certain they are speaking to a legitimate company. If unsure when receiving a call from someone claiming to be from a company and asking for information, Telus recommends they either hang-up or ask for a number to call them back directly to ensure they are speaking with someone legitimate.

Cougar grabs Helmetless cyclists worries local woman “She was not little dog wearing a helmet. She could have while owner been killed.” standing only two feet away By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

Workers at Telegraph Cove are warning visitors to be extra vigilant about wildlife after a brazen cougar attack that killed a small dog on Canada Day. Priscilla Palsway of Telegraph Cove Resort, said a man reported that his shih tzu was snatched by a cougar late Monday at a camp near Alder Bay. The man had let his dog out and was standing about two feet away from a friend when a cougar suddenly ran between the pair, grabbed the dog and took off, said Palsway. The dog was never seen again, she said. “He was pretty upset about it,” Palsway said. “I felt so bad for the dog.” Although wildlife sightings are common in the area, Palsway said the incident is alarming because cougars typically don’t get too close to people. “They’re usually more scared of you than you are scared of them,” she said. “I was kind of worried about that.” Since the attack, she said signs have been put up warning visitors to keep their children close and dogs on leash. In early June, in nearby Beaver Cove, a grizzly bear attacked and killed a guard dog in a shed at a sea soil plant. “It actually ate the dog,” said Jeanne Kinnis of the Alert Bay Resort. “It wasn’t a nice thing.” Although there haven’t been any recent wildlife sightings in her area, Kinnis said she always warns campers to take safety precautions against bears and cougars. “Dogs, kids, anything. We do have to be careful,” she said. “We’re in their backyard.” On Saturday, conservation officials destroyed a cougar in Kelowna near Black Mountain, according to media reports. The cougar was shot and killed in the backyard of a residence of Shaunna Road in the early-morning hours. Requests for comment from conservation officials were not immediately returned. So far this spring there have been no major incidents involving cougars in and or around Campbell River, despite the fact that deer populations seem to have risen this year. To report wildlife that poses a risk to public safety, call the B.C. Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-9527277. — Glacier News Service

Valerie Delaney was shocked to see a cyclist thrown out onto the Island Highway and into the path of an oncoming truck right in front of KFC. The incident happened last week and Delaney said the 20-something young woman was lucky on two counts. “First, the truck was able to stop in time,” said Delaney, still shaken after witnessing the incident where the cyclist slammed into the open door of a parked vehicle and went flying off her bike, over the door and into the street. “Second, she was not wearing a helmet. She could have been killed.” Instead, the woman reportedly got up, dusted herself off, said she was fine, and left the scene. Delaney was certain the young woman is not fine and will be feeling the effects of the accident in the days to come. A total of 170 cyclists are involved in bike accidents in a typical summer across Vancouver Island, according to statistics released by the Insurance Corporation of BC. And while the number of serious

head injuries from cycling has dropped in Canada, from 907 in 2002, to 665 in 2010, the aversion to mandatory helmet laws has increased and helmet use is estimated in BC at 59 per cent. The BC helmet law was implemented in 1996. The law applies to all ages with a fine of up to $100 if ticketed. The rationale for the law was that helmets can save lives and reduce head injuries. With the cost of those injuries covered by the public, it’s better to force cyclists to wear helmets than force taxpayers to pay for a cyclist’s head injuries. Several provinces in Canada were, in fact, early adopters of helmet legislation after some Australian states began mandating protective headgear for cyclists about two decades ago. New Brunswick, British Columbia and Nova Scotia made helmets a must for all riders in the mid1990s. Prince Edward Island followed suit

in 2003. In Ontario and Alberta (and soon Manitoba), bike helmets are mandatory for minors but not adults. Campbell River locals have varying opinions on the use of bike helmets. Some people wear a helmet just to avoid the ticket if they are caught bareheaded. Others have a real fear of head injury should they get into an accident. Many want to set a good example for their children. At the age of seven, one local woman had a bike accident that left her with three surgeries. “Had I not been wearing a helmet, I would have had head injuries from when I flew over a car and landed on the pavement,” she said. A 17 year old does not remember his bike accident, only waking up in the hospital the next day. “I had a helmet but I didn’t think it was cool to wear one,” he said. “I was lucky not to be dead but a year later I am still dealing with the injuries to my head.” “Always wear a helmet,” said one father. “There simply is no logical excuse to not wear one. Protect your brain pan. It’s the only one you’ve got. Don’t even go to the corner store without it.” sthomson@courierislander.com

The only refuge is in humility, an utterly convinced, completely self-effacing humility before the complexity of truth and the even greater complexity of human nature, in the solemn certainty that complete impartiality and complete honesty are beyond the power of man, no matter how he may strain for them. In this there is a measure of help towards the proper balance of head and heart and law that yields a fair decision. - Roderick Haig-Brown

Our View Sometimes it’s not so simple Criticizing decisions that come out of city hall seems to be a favourite past time in most communities. It’s normal. It comes under the heading trying to please everyone, which of course is impossible. Even pleasing the majority of people will bring sharp rebukes from the minority. And heaven forbid making a decision favouring what appears to be a minority over a majority. It is only natural. People pay their taxes and expect good value for those dollars. Any deviation from that — factual or perceived — will bring out the critic in just about anyone. But in some of the criticisms and supposed solutions, there is a real misunderstanding of how municipal financing works. One of the most common mistakes is when taxpayers say that the city could have saved the money from one project and used it on another. In basic math that makes sense, but in municipal finances it’s not that simple. For instance, there have been suggestions that monies used for some existing and proposed park purposes would be better spent on water and sewer projects. Unfortunately is isn’t that easy. Provincial regulations governing municipalities dictates that the transfer of funds from one project to another can’t be done. Parks money can’t be used for water and sewer. And water money can’t be used for sewer work and vice versa. So criticize away, but be aware of the limits under which city finances operate.

A towering conundrum

In response to Stan Cook’s letter to the editor in the July 3 Courier-Islander: While he may be entitled to his opinion he is not entitled to personal attacks on Nan Latchford which is endemic throughout our society. Within the last few years BC residents have expressed concerns with the cumulative effects of Electro Magnetic Radiation (EMR), most recently BC Hydro’s smart meters. The World Health Organization has brought scientists together to pour through the endless research to conclude there is a possible linkage to cancer that requires further long-term studies.

If cumulative effects of EMR prove to be true, then Mr. Cook will have a battle on his hands. If towers have to be removed, a collective disagreement between big business interest has to sort out who should remove or dial down their emissions to collectively meet the financial investments of everyone. While the finger pointing takes years if not decades to sort through, my children will be thanking Mrs. Latchford for the courage and strategic thinking in representing her community. On behalf of our children thanks to city council and Mrs. Latchford. Sheldon Martell

Flying fish and sinking plane(r)s I assured my brother-in-law Jimmy that I knew what I was doing on that day in the early 90s. We had our rods out, with ‘deep six’ planers on each to get the herring strip down. We were just a few hundred yards off of Shelter Point, the 14-foot tinny lapped through a small ripple as the 9.9/HP motor purred along. Then the rod was almost pulled out of my hands. “There it is, just like I said,” I yelled. Line was peeling off and the rod tip bent sharply towards the bottom of the boat. I told Jimmy to put the engine in neutral and get his line in. And the strangest thing happened. The fish stopped fighting. The rod stayed bent over and I couldn’t get any line back. Big chinook? I thought. Halibut? Orca? Captain Nemo by the arse? I told Jim to put the motor in drive and we would try to move the darn fish that way. As soon as he started it the fish started to run again, hard. That’s when Jim shut off the engine again. I yelled, asking him what he thought he was doing disobeying the Captain’s orders. Jimmy smiled, pulled the motor up and pointed to the green deep six planer which was wrapped around the prop with about a million miles of line. “Nice fish,” said Jim.

Too late, the rod went over, and line started peeling off. “Put it in neutral!” I yelled. “It is in neutral,” said Jim and in that instant, not far from our boat, a chinook came out of the water with what looked like a white plug in its mouth. “Nice fish,” said Jim. “Shut up,” said Neil, all of sudden sweating. The chinook made a great show, jumping four or five times before he came to the boat. I instructed Jimmy how to handle the net, not to jab it, but slide it beneath the fish. Jimmy was ready and I thought the fish was too. He extended the net and waited for my word. That’s when the chinook came out of the water, flew between us, and banged into the bottom of the boat. It turned out to be 28 pounds. Heading back in with big grins on our faces, we toasted a most excellent fishing. “I’ll remember that until the day I die,” said Jim, smiling. Unfortunately that day came July 2, 2013. Jim was only 52.

Trevena pushes government on Zeballos Road promise By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

Campaign promises can be as shaky as the road to Zeballos. Speaking to her newly-elected caucus members as well as defeated candidates, including North Island’s Nick Facey just after the May 14 election, Premier Christy Clark said the party must now make good on its election promises. But while talk is cheap and $15 million is not. On May 14 the citizens of Zeballos voted in incumbent Claire Trevena with the final vote count being Trevena 31, Liberal candidate Nick Facey 25, and Conservative candidate Bob Bray nine. During question period last week, Trevena — recently appointed Opposition Critic for Transportation — Highways and BC

Ferries, asked Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone about a certain election promise. “The North Island Liberal candidate during the election, Nick Facey, now has one of the Liberal’s highly paid political appointments,” said Trevena. “He’s chief of staff to the Minister of Health. But during the election he promised that the 45-kilometre gravel road to Zeballos would be paved by the Liberal government. So I wondered if the Minister of Transportation or the Minister of Forests could answer this simple question. Will Zeballos get that paved road promised by Mr. Facey, or were all the funds promised used on a jobs plan for failed Liberal candidates?” “We’ll start off by making it very clear that safety on our highways is the number one priority across British Columbia,” said Stone. “Zeballos is approximately 40 kilometres from Highway 19. I’m certain the member probably

knows every kilometre of that road. “The first 35 kilometres are a gravel Forest Service Road under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources. The last 4.5 kilometres are under the jurisdiction of our ministry, with the first 3.4 kilometres being gravel and the last 1.1 kilometres through the community of Zeballos being paved. I will confirm for the honourable member that at this point in time there are no plans to pave this road to Zeballos.” In January of this year, the Village of Zeballos asked the government to improve the dangerous condition of the 78 kilometre gravel road from Highway 19 into the community. It is estimated to cost around $15 million. The road is the main access into not only Zeballos but the First Nations reserves and Fair Harbour. The economic advantages of paving the road are reported to be significant. Twenty

million pounds of seafood were shipped from Zeballos during the 2012 pilchard season. Trucks travelled in and out of the village to pick up the products and take it to the market. At that time, fishing lodges were full and the hotels and motels often had no vacancies. The area’s tourism market share has been lost due to the road conditions. The road has been reported to have large potholes, steep rock walls, sharp drop-offs to the water and small pullouts for meeting traffic. There have been traffic fatalities on this road and emergency medical travel is hazardous due to the rugged road conditions and often air ambulance services have to be used because of the situation. The most dangerous section of the 78-km gravel road is a 10-km stretch under Western Forest Product’s road use permit. sthomson@courierislander.com

DO YOU KNOW THE FIRE RULES? By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander ‘Tis the season for campfires and yard work that may require back yard burning. It is also the season for forest fires. Campbell River is very liberal when it comes to rules about fire burning, according to Campbell River Fire Department Chief, Ian Baikie. Even Comox and Courtenay have very tight rules. But there are laws in place and it is important that Campbell River community members and visitors are aware of the safety issues and laws implemented to prevent unintended fires. Back yard burning is only allowed outside the City of Campbell River. “Specifically, anywhere west of Jubilee Parkway or the Inland Island Highway, Gordon Road, yes, Holly Hills, no,” said Baikie. “In the approved areas, disposing of wood waste, trees, hedges and branches are allowed two times a year, in September and October. “Back yard burning must be in the back yard, away from combustibles, a hose has to be there, and an adult has to be in attendance at all times. “If smoke is a nuisance or the fire too high and we get a complaint, we will come by to look.” The city’s position on yard waste is that it should be dropped off at Willis Road Yard Waste, for free, or curbside during yard waste pick up season. Campfires, whether they be at the beach or on private property are allowed year round in the city of Campbell River, unless a full burning ban is in effect by the Ministry of Forests. “The Campbell River Fire Department tends to follow the lead of the Ministry of Forests regarding

imposing fire bans,” said Baikie. “Beach fires are safer than back yard burns but they must be below the tide mark and must have an adult in attendance at all times.” Beach fires or camp fires must be no higher or wider than a two-foot circle and must have a ring of rocks or some kind of division to keep it controlled. The fires must be used to cook with or as a heat source. You cannot burn waste or organic materials, it must be firewood. Air quality must be maintained. If it is too large, emits too much smoke, if it is associated with a raucous party or is unattended, the Campbell River Fire Department will likely come to investigate. “We have the option of imposing a $200 fine but we generally prefer to coach people rather than be punitive,” said Baikie. “Ken Forde boat ramp is our favourite location for beach fires,” he said. “Problems can happen at places like between 1st and 6th where you cannot see the fires from the road and there are banks there that could catch fire and work its way up. Also Painter Barclay beach although that is mostly private property and fires must be below the high tide line. The Spit is a must be below the high tide mark.” One thing people don’t realize is beach fires must be in the daylight hours. “It is in the code,” said Baikie, “but if the fire is the right, size burning properly, there’s no partying with alcohol and adults are in attendance, and as long as the mechanism to put the fire out is there we rarely enforce after dark.” If you are not sure or want clarification call the non emergency line at the CRFD (250-286-6266) and they will explain the rules and answer questions over the phone. sthomson@courierislander.com

Is there a bully in the waters of Discovery Passage? Have you ever been on or around the water near the Quadra Island ferry terminal and heard loud blasts from the ferry’s horn? Well from BC Ferry passengers, people on the docks and land near the terminal in either Campbell River or Quathiaski Cove or even on the water, the sound of numerous blasts (short and long) have been resonating in our ears for years now. Why would this be you ask? Well it is coming from the Powell River Queen as it transits along its route. It seems that there is a ferry captain or captains who think that the BC Ferries are above the Transport Canada Regulations and that all boaters must yield to the mighty ferry!

If a boater comes into a large bubble of space that the ferry feels is theirs alone they are quick to blast their horn to scare off anyone who dares to invade their precious area. So, does the Powell River Queen have the right to do this? No they do not, and here is why: In the Transport Canada Collision Regulations it states that: A power driven vessel is any craft propelled by machinery, such as an inboard or outboard engine, which is the category that the ferry fits in. A power-driven vessel underway shall keep out of the way of: (i) a vessel not under command, (ii) a vessel restricted in her ability to manoeuvre,

The other vessel is required to keep out of your way. You are the “stand-on” vessel. All power driven vessels must follow these simple rules and the Powell River Queen is no exception.

This is when vessels less than 20 metres and fishing vessels shall not impede the passage of larger vessels within a narrow channel. Now does the narrow channel definition fit for Discovery Passage, possibly? It does not mean that the Powell River Queen can blast its horn at any moving object that “may” be coming close to impeding the passage of the ferry. Now getting back to comparing the Powell River Queen to bullying, we must first look at the definition

How Does Mortgage Default Insurance Work? Mortgage Loan Insurance is insurance that protects lenders against default on a mortgage loan by the homeowner. This is required on all mortgages where the homeowner has less than 20% of the purchase price for a down payment. The great thing about mortgage loan insurance is that it allows homeowners to buy a home with as

little as 5% down – this must be a primary or secondary residence and not a rental, which requires a minimum 20% down payment. To obtain mortgage loan insurance, an insurance premium must be paid based on the total amount of the loan, which is the purchase price minus the down payment. These premiums range depending on your down

payment – the larger your down payment, the lower your premiums will be. Although most people end up adding this amount to the mortgage, it can also be paid as a lump sum at closing. Give me a call or email me any time if you have any questions about mortgage loan insurance or if you need any assistance obtaining a mortgage.

Bullies on the water? Continued from page 11. That sure sounds like what the ferry does at times on its crossing between Quadra and Campbell River. I have witnessed this first hand from the land and on the ferry itself. I am appalled that the ferry will not follow the collision regulations and instead try to enforce the small section that can possibly apply to them. This way of practice is totally obnoxious and falls loosely into a form of road rage. Additionally I have heard from some ferry employees who are embarrassed by this behaviour from the captain(s) on the bridge. I can only

imagine what a ferry passenger, tourist, school child may feel when they hear the sudden and loud blasts of noise. They might think that the ferry is in trouble and could cause a moment of panic. This would not be good. So what shall the general public think of BC Ferries? I would have to say that this is another example of the high handed, arrogant behaviour that typically comes with adolescents, not the so called government provider of marine transportation. Maybe it is time for BC Ferries to take their hands off of the horn and back onto common sense. Frank Assu

The crying few win out again

So no new tower in Willow Point, thanks to a 125 signatures. Looks like council was bought out since 3000 Willow Point residents were in favour. But as usual the crying few get their way. All I can say is, what a train wreck. Does City Councillor Larry Samson and the rest of the crew think cell phones are actually going away and there will be less in the future? All the children who are supposedly going to harmed by these ‘Martian Waves’ soon will be teens themselves glued to their own phones, big screen TVs, microwaves and more... Lets be clear RF waves will only increase in the future not decrease, it’s the way we live and what people want. Philip Lowe

Illegal dumping shocks, disgusts We Wai Kai Nation We would like to thank the hard working group known as “Concerned Citizens” who cleaned up the logging road next to the Quinsam Reserve #12. In 2010 when the Nation did own the road, it was cleaned at a great expense of both time and money, as well, a gate was installed to deter any further illegal dumping. In late 2011, the road went back

to private ownership, the gate was destroyed and the amount of illegal dumping that occurred ever since has been both shocking and disgusting. We encourage all individuals who witness illegal dumping to contact the RCMP; and once again thanks/ Gilakasla to all those who helped in the clean up! Chief and Council of the We Wai Kai Nation

Ocean Pacific marks 3,000th boat lift at Campbell River store

Ocean Pacific Marine Store and Boatyard in Campbell River commemorated their 3,000th boat lift with local fisherman Dan Smith of the Reid Pass July 2. Ocean Pacific Marine has operated since 1985, is the largest commercial boat repair yard on the North Island and is a fixture of marine life in the Campbell River region. The 3,000th lift was performed by the 110 ton Travelift, which began operating in October 2010. It is capable of lifting boats up to 90 feet long, 110 tons and with beams of up to 24 feet across.

From their origins as a marine store operating on Pier Street, Ocean Pacific has expanded immensely in their 27 years, most significantly when they opened a branch store in the Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre in 1997, and when they moved the boatyard operations and the store to this location in 2007. Ocean Pacific also offers space for vessel owners to work independently. The many boats that have passed through the Ocean Pacific yards represent a living history of marine life on the West Coast.

Local FEATURE BUSINESS Shortcuts to a lush lawn

There are one million acres of lawn across the country. Many homeowners aspire to having a lush, green lawn as the showcase of their properties. The front lawn can make a statement and indicate to passersby the property owners’ personalities and design preferences. Lawn care takes some dedication and hard work, but there are certain ways to cut down on the amount of effort required to maintain a landscape. By employing a few different shortcuts, you can have a healthy, lush lawn without spending all of your free time cutting the grass or pruning the trees. • Stop weeds at the start. Weeding is one of the most timeconsuming parts of maintaining a lawn. Weeds can proliferate throughout the lawn if not addressed in a timely manner. Once weeds take root they can become a nuisance, so it’s best to treat weeds before they even have a chance to sprout. Apply a preemergent weed control product as soon as possible in the spring and then reapply it about three months later to ensure weeds are eradicated. That equates to much less tedious lawn maintenance during the season. • Plant a urine-resistant grass. Having a dog and maintaining a lush lawn has always been a particular conundrum for homeowners. Dog urine is high in nitrogen. While nitrogen, when applied in the correct ratio, can be a lawn-growth stimulant, in the large concentration that occurs in pet urine, it causes the grass to dry up and burn, resulting in bare spots. Replanting with urine-resistant grasses can help cut down on the level of damage to the lawn from your own pet or pets that happen to make potty stops on your property. The grasses most resistant to urine tend to be perennial ryegrasses and fescues. • Wake up and water. Watering in the early mornings saves time and energy in the long run by fostering a tougher, more droughtresistant lawn. If you water early in the day, less water will be lost to evaporation. Limit watering to a few times per week, and less if you have had adequate rain. Avoid watering at night, which can expose the lawn to bacteria and attract insects. • Mow when the lawn is dry. It’s not adviseable to mow the lawn when it is wet. Slippery conditions can not only make it more dangerous to push a mower, but also slow down the time it can take to tackle the chore. The mower blades can become clogged and coated with wet grass clippings, necessitating stopping and starting the task. Another thing to consider is lawn diseases spread more readily through wet clippings. Stick to mowing when the lawn is completely dry. • Let clippings fly. Mulching mowers, or those that just distribute clippings on the lawn as you go, can be healthier for the grass. They will serve as fertilizer and redistribute nutrients to the lawn as they breakdown into the soil. According to “The Organic Lawn Care Manual,” leaving clippings on the lawn will fulfill about 25 percent of fertilizer requirements. Plus, you save time bagging up clippings. • Mow less often. Raise the mower’s blade so that the grass is longer in between cuttings. The taller grass will shade the soil and block weeds from germinating. It also helps improve soil’s moisture retention. • Don’t cut corners. Adjusting a landscape design to have arches and curves can reduce the time it takes to mow and edge a property. Hard corners in a landscape will require more time to keep straight and pristine.

Emily Turner at Temple Square.

Local girl returns home after stay at Salt Lake City Emily Turner has returned to Quadra Island after serving an 18 month mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Turner, who was born and raised on Quadra, spent most of her time away at the Salt Lake City Temple Square mission. Turner was raised in the church, and decided to go on a mission because her family was brought into the church through the work of missionaries. “Once I fully understood the teachings of the Church in regards to how to gain happiness in this life,” she said “and that what really made me happy was the Church, then I felt I had to go share with others as that is how my family was brought in.” She explained that her experience was different from the usual mission in several ways. Salt Lake City is the headquarters for the Church, and in the heart of the city is Temple Square. The main attraction in the Square is the Salt Lake Temple, a granite structure constructed between 1853 and 1893, and sacred to Church members. Nearby are other historical buildings and sites, as well as the Tabernacle, home to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Turner served as a missionary and had many duties, including conducting guided tours and talking to people over the phone and on-line. There are approximately 180 young women serving on Temple Square, representing 40 languages. They are divided into pairs, called companions. During her time away, Turner worked with 10 different companions, from South Korea, the United States, Switzerland and Somoa. A typical day started with exercise, followed by two hours of study — one personal, and one hour with her companion. Turner and her companion would then go to Temple Square for three hours and be available for anyone who had questions or wanted a tour. After lunch, they would work in the teaching centre for two hours (calling people, teaching over the phone, receiving calls, or chats from mormon.org) This was followed by another session on Temple Square, dinner, and then a second session in the teaching centre. She also was able to have an outbound experience, where she served in the California Arcadia mission for three months. This time was spent in the more usual way of teaching lessons face to face as well as participating in service projects. Turner said that her favourite part about doing missionary work was seeing how happy people were when they were being taught, whether that was in a forty minute tour, or in an ongoing teaching relationship. While away, Turner felt that she learned “the importance of living the commandments and the gospel — all the little things like praying and going to church — doing it and meaning it.” She said she gained an understanding that “God is a loving Heavenly Father, and that we are all brothers and sisters.” She felt it would affect how she reacts to people. Turner is presently taking some distance education courses, and hopes to go to school full time in January. She plans to study psychology.

What is the Value of Financial Planning? A recent three year study by the Financial Planning Standards Council attempted to answer the question. I’m always a little skeptical of surveys but the size, scope and methodology of this was on the up and up. The purpose of the study was to measure financial planning in three ways; emotional, tangible and quantifiable. They also attempted to determine whether there are differences in the impact of comprehensive planning versus targeted advice and to contrast certified planners and non-certified, advisors. Six disciplines consisting of household budgeting, tax, retirement, estate planning, investing and debt or risk management were considered with comprehensive considered as three or more, limited 1-2 and no planning at zero. Murray Callaghan The results measured responses and financial data to those on track with; their financial affairs, retirement, ability to save and to deal with life’s bumps. Fittingly, those engaged in comprehensive planning fared the best in all and those with an accredited professional outranked those non-certified advisors. No surprises there. Is it the chicken and egg scenario? Those with more money to begin with get better advice and end up doing more planning or is it the other way around? The survey doesn’t explicitly define but after contemplating for some time I’m firmly convinced it’s the latter. Yes, if one doesn’t make a certain amount of money in today’s society it’s all but impossible to make it much past the basic needs. Still, I’ve yet to meet anyone born wealthy and those that I’ve met with present and future financial success all share the same basic principle of living below their means. The numbers behind the numbers are almost as interesting as the conclusions. While 81 per cent of those that engaged in comprehensive planning felt that they were on track with their financial affairs only 50 per cent of those felt that they were on track to retire when they want to. Makes one wonder how those currently doing limited or no planning at all will fare in the future? Some of the intangible measurements also show that those engaged in comprehensive planning are balancing life today with the needs of tomorrow. Double the number of people responding that they still manage an annual vacation and have money for the occasional splurge than those without a plan. They also respond a stronger sense of financial, emotional and overall achievement of life’s objectives.

Shame and fear are the twin enemies of feeling worthy. Most of us feel that there are certain things that we dare not share with others, dark secrets so shameful that were we to reveal them no one would accept us. But, all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and we should not doubt that God loves us even so. God’s making us was no mistake, and he certainly knew the many ways in which we would fall short. God’s only requirement for us is that we have the courage to confess our sins and own up to our shortcomings. Confessing those sins and shortcomings to our fellow man takes even more courage than confessing them to God, but the payoff is worth it. We will thereby discover which of our friends and family members will accept us just as we are. One of the earliest meanings of the word “courage” is “to speak one’s mind,” or literally “to tell one’s heart.” And indeed, courage is required to “tell one’s heart.” Remember, though, that being worthy is less about being blameless and more about opening our heart to others and trusting that they will accept us. — Christopher Simon “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed.” James 5:16

Janet Adele Lloyd-Walters (nee Jack) It is with great sadness that the family of Janet Adele (Jandeli) Lloyd-Walters announces her passing on the morning of July 6th, 2013 just as the sun rose over the mountains. While surrounded by love and nothing left unsaid, Mom lost her short, courageously fought battle with cancer. Jan-deli was born November 26, 1931 in North Vancouver, BC to parents George and Anne Jack. Jan-deli moved to Galilean Island at the age of 11, a place she often referred to as paradise. It was there she would meet the love of her life and husband of sixty-two and a half years Jack. Together they moved around to different logging camps on the BC coast before finally settling in Campbell River. Jan-deli was predeceased by her parents, George in 1978, her beloved Mom Anne in 1996 and only Brother Harry in 1982. Jan-deli is survived by her loving husband Jack and their five children, sons Craig (Adele), John (Lisa) and three daughters Janis Quinn (Lyle), Gale-Ann Maier (Aaron) and George Smith (Wayne). Nine grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren, all of whom brought her tremendous joy. She was fiercely proud of each one. Family was her greatest Joy. Mom loved to laugh, garden, read, knit cotton dishcloths, feed her family and dearly loved her animals. Mom was a kind, resourceful gentle lady with a wonderful laugh, strong work ethic and an even stronger sense of family which she instilled in each of her children and for that we are forever grateful. Her family is especially thankful for the wonderful compassionate care Mom received. Special thanks to Dr. Lebeuf, Dr. Dhansay and the third floor nurses responsible for caring for Mom and us during her last two weeks. At Mom’s request, the family will gather at a later date for a wiener roast at the beach. Friends wishing to remember Mom are asked that when gathered with your families this summer take a moment to think of her with a laugh and a smile. Many thanks Mom for loving us unconditionally and for being such a beautiful example.

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS JEFFERY, BETTY SEP 20, 1925 - JUN 13, 2013 It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Betty Jeffery in Campbell River hospital. She was better known by everyone as Aunt Betty. She is predeceased by her parents Mary Adelene and Henry Charles Jeffery, sisters Lillian and Dolly, brothers Charles, Freddie and Baron. She is survived by nieces Joan and Maryann, nephews Dennis, Jim, Ted, John, Barry and Wayne and their ex− tended families and many other relatives. Aunt Betty was born in North Vancouver and came to Cortez Island as a baby in 1925. She lived at Butler Bay, Chris Lagoon and then settled on the Jeffery property in Smelt Bay till her passing. She worked at Painters Lodge in Campbell River for many years and met Bob Hope and Glen Ford there. She also worked for Plaza Bakery for Hank. Aunt Betty had a great sense of humor and good sto− ries of the old days. She especially enjoyed family and friends to come for tea and play cards. She also en− joyed family outings. We will miss her dearly. Aunt Bet− ty was the last Elder of the Jeffery Clan in Smelt Bay. She did have a good life and we have lots of memories to cherish. The family wishes to thank the home care workers and volunteers on Cortez and the nurses and doctors in Comox and Campbell River hospital for their Special Care given to her. No service by request. A Tea in her memory will be in September.

BTWW barbecue raises $1,500 for head injury support society While the number of teams and participants in Bike to Work Week 2013 was lower than in 2012, the enthusiasm and support from Campbell River cyclists was great. At the midweek barbecue in Spirit Square, sponsored by Marine Harvest, more than 200 salmon burgers were sold, raising $1,500 for the Campbell River Head Injury Society. Although the numbers were down and the weather not very coopera-

tive, Campbell River’s participation in Bike to Work Week 2013 still trumped communities like Nanaimo, Squamish and Whistler. For Bike to Work Week 2013, Campbell River had 84 teams and 314 cyclists participating. They cycled a total of 11,965 kilometres, preventing 2,776 kilograms of greenhouse gases from entering the Photo submitted atmosphere. That is the equivalent Ian Roberts of Marine Harvest, Jennifer Parker of the CR Head Injury Society and Sue McDonald of the CR of driving a mid-sized car for six Bike to Work Week committee pose with the cheque raised through a salmon barbecue at BTWW festivities. months.

Making a connection between Campbell River and Africa To walk in their shoes would mean going barefoot...children taking steps towards bridging two cultures together with giving, love, and joy. That is one of the reasons why Arelene Lihala and team created a program called CCC (Chikondi Connecting Children). Children in Campbell River are connecting with children at (Chikondi One Heart Angels Orphanage) in African with a PenPal Program where they exchange hand-written letters, artwork and photos, four times a year. This is a heartfelt commitment and dedication that will be beneficial for the children with an educational experience to deepen their knowledge, values and beliefs.

Southgate bands have Disneyland Resort concert The Southgate school Grade 8 Concert and Jazz Band members became stars of their own Disney show in May when they entertained visitors at Disneyland Resort. They traveled from Campbell River to the Disneyland Resort in California to take part in a Disney Performing Arts Program. Dance groups, choirs, ensembles and marching bands from around the world apply to perform each year as part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland and the Walt Disney World Resorts. Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Resorts in the more than 25-year history of the program. Disney Performing Arts offers band, choral, dance and auxiliary performers the opportunity to learn, perform and compete at the Disneyland Resort. For more information, visit www. DisneyPerformingArts.com or call 1800-603-0552.

When asked why she wants to be part of connecting with children across the globe she replied, “It’s fun and I can learn new things.” The world of these orphanage children and their expectations are very simple — they are so thankful for the smallest of things and show kindness, joy and love through everything they do.
