Transition Society opens the doors on new facility By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander A rose symbolizes gratitude, friendship and love, and so does the building at 1070 Dogwood Street. Rose Harbour, the long-awaited $6 million, 27-unit second stage housing project is complete. It has been a long time coming. “The Transition Society (CRNITS) decided when doing strategic planning in 2006 that second stage housing had to be the No. 1 priority,” said Valery Puetz, Executive Director of CRNITS. “It had been a dream and a wish since the early 90s. So work in earnest began at that time. In 2007 a grant was received from CMHC to do a needs assessment and build a business plan. Once done we began to petition BC Housing for funding for design and development of a facility and asked the City to provide land.” “In 2008 the City of Campbell River and BC Housing Management Corporation signed a Memo of Understanding in response to the homelessness issue,” said Puetz. “In the document the City agreed to provide the property and waive development fees and BC Housing agreed to provide funds for the capital costs and operational costs of about 30 self contained bachelor suites, one and two bedroom units as well as programming and amenity space to provide for homeless women and their families fleeing abuse.” Puetz said that plans originally called for a five-storey, 30-unit structure with administration and life skills training space making up the ground

she said. Services could include life skills training such as cooking and budgeting. Rose Harbour will also provide links to other local services. “We’re not going to duplicate what already exists in town but we may connect people to the existing services,” she said. The four-storey Rose Harbour building was built to a LEED Gold standard. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental and Design), a third-party certification program administered through the Canada Green Building Council and an internationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance green buildings. Rose Harbour is the first LEED rated building in Campbell River, “There are 27 units, there are three three bedroom units, three two bedroom units, three one bedroom accessible units, three regular one bedroom units, and 15 studio units. All are assigned and there is a wait list,” said Puetz. The ground floor will be used for support services for the tenants and others including the Campbell River Women’s Centre.

Framework to guide Mt. Washington expansion An 18-month project to devise a planning framework to guide the future expansion of Mount Washington as a resort and community has been completed. Now rural regional district directors want to move forward to adopting the framework as a replacement for the official community plan for the mountaintop settlement. In the Comox Valley Regional Growth Strategy, Mount Washington is designated as a ‘settlement node’ where growth will be encouraged, not just on land owned by the alpine resort company but also in the surrounding community. The new ‘Integrated Resort Community Plan’ (IRCP) is the result of consultations with existing residents, businesses and landowners as well as a survey of tourists visiting the resort. In addition to identifying appropriate land for future development, areas that should be protected or reserved for recreation or other uses within the area have also been mapped out in the IRCP. It also addresses key issues like the provision of community services and public infrastructure - even the importance of identifying locations to stockpile excessive snow until it can melt away safely. In a report to regional district directors this week, staff said that over the long term, the future of Mount Washington was not only tied to the commercial expansion of the alpine resort but also in the area’s ability to grow as a true community. That ability would be dependent on the provision of certain essential community services, including fire protection, water and sewer, policing and security issues, solid waste disposal and telecommunications, they added. Growth was not simply a question of making land available for new building and letting the market drive the pace, but working out how further development could be serviced in a practical

way. In the short term, the number one priority for the existing community is said to be ways of providing fire cover, a point underscored by alpine resort president Peter Gibson at Monday’s CVRD electoral areas services committee meeting. At present, Mount Washington is too far from any existing fire hall to be part of a fire protection area, and at the same time the number of permanent residents is too small to muster enough volunteers to provide even partial fire cover. As a result, property insurance rates on the mountain are very high, and the focus has been more on fire prevention than fire fighting. But if the community is to grow, that cannot continue indefinitely. In addition to servicing issues, the IRCP also recommends that steps should be taken to identify an area within the ‘core’ area of existing settlement where a true village centre could be developed over time to give real focus to the community. And over the longer term it suggests more land could be added to the areas where residential and mixed-use development would be allowed on the mountain, including along the right-hand side of Nordic Road leading to Raven Lodge, and in the ‘loop’ of Strathcona Parkway leading up the mountain above the Sunrise Quad ski lift. But for the time being there is still plenty of undeveloped land in and immediately around the existing settlement, which currently consists of around 650 homes, chalets, apartments and condos. Gibson told the committee that the resort company and the wider community was comfortable with what was being proposed in the IRCP and hoped the process towards adoption would continue.

Campbell River to receive over $1 million for hosting regional landfill The City of Campbell River will receive more than $1,000,000 to compensate for hosting the regional landfill. An agreement approved July 18 between the City and the Comox

Valley Regional District (CVRD), which supports the Comox Strathcona Waste Management Board, will pay the city $50,000 per year for five years to compensate for the social, environmental, and eco-

Mail changes coming Big changes are coming in the way letters mailed locally are sorted for delivery. From September 16, every letter collected from mailboxes and post offices in the Campbell River - and everywhere else on the Island - will be shipped to a more automated sorting plant in Vancouver. Even letters for purely local delivery will take a return ferry ride to and from the mainland. It’s all part of a nationwide efficiency drive to cut costs as the volume of letters continues to fall, although Canada Post is insisting its delivery standards won’t change. “Island residents will see very little change,” said Canada Post’s director of media relations, Anick Losier. “We will maintain the same delivery standards for local-to-local mail of two days, but customers will deposit their letters into a single mailbox instead of two.” At present, people mailing letters at side-by-side street boxes are asked to

divide them between Vancouver Island addresses, and places more distant. That system will no longer be needed from September 16, as all mail will go to the one sorting centre, which itself will be replaced next year by a new state-of-the-art facility close to Vancouver Airport. “Our Vancouver facility has the capacity to handle (increased mail) volumes easily,” Losier explained. “And we have an existing network of delivery vehicles coming to and from the Island multiple times a day, so no extra vehicles will be required to do our job.” She noted even at peak periods, only 100,000 letters a day are actually mailed on the Island these days - one for every seven Island residents. “This amount of mail can be processed on our equipment in Vancouver in less than three hours,” she explained. The Vancouver Island changes would lead to the abolition of five posts that are currently held vacant, she added, but no additional job losses. Glacier News Service

nomic impact related to the regional landfill on Argonaut Road. The agreement also includes $175,000 funding for landfill road improvements related to construction of a retaining wall to extend current landfill capacity. Additional funding of $870,000 will be provided for future road upgrades or other projects of community benefit. “The host community benefit agreement is a model used across Canada and in other BC communities to balance the impacts that a local community may experience in hosting a waste management facility against the advantages received by the region,” explains Councillor Mary Storry, who holds the Council portfolio for public works. After a host community agreement between the Village of Cumberland and the CVRD that awarded Cumberland for hosting a regional landfill was signed earlier

this year, the City of Campbell River and Comox Valley Regional District staff and elected official representatives began meeting to negotiate a host community agreement for the Campbell River Waste Management Centre (landfill). “Waste from Gold River, Cortes Island, Quadra Island and Sayward has been coming to the Campbell River Waste Management Centre for many years,” adds Councillor Larry Samson, who holds Council’s environment portfolio. “With landfill closures coming soon in Zeballos and Tahsis, more waste will travel to and/or through the Campbell River site.” The agreement takes effect retroactively on July 1, 2013 and expires on Aug. 1, 2018. The five-year term of the agreement reflects current projections that the landfill will be at capacity and closed within that time frame.

Construction of a retaining wall at the Campbell River landfill will begin later this summer once the agreement is finalized. In the event that the landfill site is still active on Jan. 1, 2018, options for a new, renewed or extended agreement will be discussed. “Signing of a host community agreement enables the CVRD to proceed with construction of the retaining wall at the landfill, which is time sensitive due to the weather window for construction,” explains City Manager Andy Laidlaw. “This agreement provides the City with financial compensation for hosting the regional landfill, including road improvements, and an annual contribution. As well, by transferring ownership of the retaining wall encroachment area to the CVRD, the CVRD will assume liability and responsibility for the wall and adjacent roadway.”

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 Once upon a time

Did you hate the Great Kate Wait or did you celebrate when the future King of Canada was born yesterday amid great pomp and circumstance? Britain thrives on its history and traditions. We could use a bit more of that in this country. I just don’t get the haters. We have been a Constitutional Monarchy since 1867. Despite the anti-monarchists view, the Queen of England is not the boss of us. We have total independence. We are seen as one of the most democratic, inclusive, stable, safe and respected countries in the world. Why is there such resentment and bashing of this historical event? The royal parodists were out in force, especially on Twitter, with tweets from “Prince William’s heir is falling out” to “Royal babies are tricky to deliver because of that whole silver spoon thing.” And there’s the rub. Has this time of violent political change, terrorism, corruption, economic collapse, catastrophic climatic events, houses of horror, racism, drugs, and all the bad news we hear and see, misery that gets higher ratings and sells more papers, become normal? Why are we as a culture so keen on wallowing in the darkness? So try this good news story on for size and see how it makes you feel. Once upon a time there was a young couple in love. They had a baby who was going to be a king. This baby was a first grandson, a first great grandson, and the first gift of life brought into the world of the father since he had lost his beloved mother at a very young age. Many people came together to celebrate the birth of the young prince and hugged each other a lot. For one day, jubilation and hope were in the headlines around the world. Even the journalists were smiling. A glimmer of light was brought into a very dark world. Does it matter where it came from?

Telus tower confusion

There has been a lot of commentary regarding the decision not to allow Telus to build a cell tower in Willow Point Park. Most of the commentary seems to revolve around a perception that this decision was rooted in a petition of 125 people and on the unknown science of the health effects of such a tower. However, the situation, in my opinion, is very clear and has nothing to do with either of the above. Council had an obligation to deny this proposal simply based on the zoning that currently exists for the park. The area is zoned as PA-1 (Public Areas) and subsequently contains

a building height restriction of 15 metres for all other uses other than hospitals and schools (which are permitted 20m). Therefore, the 30m pole proposed was simply not in line with the zoning. This is coupled with the obvious fact that erecting an industrial telecommunications facility in an area currently developed for parks and recreation is a clear conflict of uses for the area. Despite what has been reported I would believe these factors were what contributed most to the decision Council finally rested upon. Mike Fowler

NDP hammers at ethnic outreach scandal By Les Leyne It was the dominant issue in the legislature for the entire week, for two different reasons. The Opposition devoted the entire half-hour question period to the quick-wins ethnic-outreach scandal from Monday through Wednesday. Then New Democrat Leader Adrian Dix got two hours of debate time on Thursday morning and peppered deputy premier Rich Coleman (Premier Christy Clark has yet to be sworn in) with another three dozen focused questions. Then there was another half-hour question period in the afternoon on the affair, then a dozen or more questions during debate. That’s more than six hours of concentrated interrogation on a single topic. What did it produce? Mostly, six hours of stonewalling by a government that believes the whole mess is over and done with. BC Liberals point to all the appropriate steps that were taken when the story about a secret plan to use government ethnic-outreach oper-

ations for their own partisan ends first broke in February. There was a grovelling apology and an investigation by four senior deputies. Some people lost their jobs, and there were recommendations to make sure it can’t happen again. But mostly Liberals are relying on the fact that a fairly definitive verdict was rendered on May 15. The case was fully aired by the time voters went to the polls, and the results show the scandal had no bearing on their decision. The Liberals were re-elected with ease, on the strength of a lot of other things in play. The Opposition’s entire effort this week was an attempt to make people care about quick wins again. The second go-round is based on the emergence of some email fragments — redacted for various freedomof-information reasons — that raise questions about the official report. One of the findings was that the whole sketchy scheme was just a “draft plan” that never got executed. But the email suggests it went

further than was reported. It alludes to offering a job or contract to someone involved in the outreach effort who was apparently getting restless. That occupied most of the week. The Opposition intensified the questions Thursday when another email surfaced, in a novel fashion. Global News interviewed the former staffer and the NDP noticed an email on the screen in the televised clip. They did a screen grab and later somehow procured the note. It was from former cabinet minister John Yap, who was fretting about the staffer’s failure to produce election “lists” as promised. Whether that shows the scheme was being executed or just proves that lists of ethnic target groups weren’t produced isn’t clear. The takeaway from a week’s worth of grilling is how heavily invested the NDP is in resurrecting the quick-wins scandal. It’s partly because the quick summer session is a humdrum affair devoted only to re-passing a budget. The emails are the only interesting thing around,

so they are determined — and obligated — to chase them. That’s what Oppositions do. But the other motivation is that rejuvenating the issue would go a long way toward countering the impression they blew the election. Dix thinks he can conclusively prove “they cheated,” which could take some of the heat off him for the devastating loss in May. The tricky part is to make that case without dragging the deputies into it. The convention is that politicians attack each other, but rarely go after the bureaucracy. The logical conclusion to the NDP line of thought, however, is that the deputy ministers didn’t get the full story in their report. Dix isn’t ready to go after them. He said the report is incomplete because the Liberals restricted the scope of their investigation. He’s raising suspicions because that’s what Oppositions do. But also because he’s fighting for his political life. Glacier News Service

Accused murderer’s lawyer calls it a day

SPCA adult cat adoption promotion on till July 31

The BC SPCA is holding a special adoption promotion featuring half-price adult cat adoption fees to July 31 in response to the overwhelming number of felines in care at its shelters. Currently there are 743 adult cats being cared for at SPCA facilities across the province. “The BC SPCA takes in more than 15,000 Judge Saunderson was prompted to ask him By Sian Thomson homeless felines each year and right now our “You are charged with murder. You understand Campbell River Courier-Islander that don’t you?” during an in-person hearing in shelters are filled to capacity,” says Bob Busch, general manager of operations for the BC Campbell River shortly after he was arrested. Accused murderer Traigo Andretti is once SPCA. “We always see an influx of animals A lawyer from Legal Aid will be assigned to again without a lawyer and previous advice at our shelters during the summer season and the case and Andretti is scheduled to be back in from Judge Brian Saunderson in May, “Work this year is no exception.

average cost to care for a cat during its stay is $784, much higher than the actual adoption fee. Our costs include vaccinations, spaying or neutering, an identification tattoo or microchip, preventative treatment for internal and external parasites, any medical care or rehabilitation required, daily welfare monitoring, sheltering and feeding.” While the goal of the promotion is to find loving homes for as many adult cats as possible, all of the usual adoption criteria will apply. “We want to make sure that the animals are a right fit for their new home and that their needs will be met,” notes Busch. For more details on the cat adoption promotion, visit your local SPCA branch or visit spca.bc.ca/halfpricelove. Follow #HalfPriceLove on Twitter to keep up with the event’s happenings.

Summer CounterAttack now on

On Canada Day alone, an average of three people are killed and 155 injured in 601 crashes every year in BC. Two of these fatalities are people killed in crashes involving impaired driving. Last wedek, the BC government, police and ICBC kicked off this summer’s CounterAttack campaign to ask drivers to plan ahead this weekend and throughout the summer if their activities involve alcohol. “Our tough impaired driving law is having a positive impact on the safety of British Columbians,” said Suzanne Anton, Attorney General and Minister of Justice. “While we’ve seen tremendous improvements, we’re commit-

ting over $1 million to enhanced enforcement this year, which includes the summer CounterAttack campaign, to ensure that police across the province can dedicate officers to enforcement of the impaired driving laws and other road safety priorities. This is above and beyond the work that is done every day by police officers throughout the province to keep our roads safe.” Since BC’s Immediate Roadside Prohibition program came into effect in Sept. 2010, there has been an unprecedented 51 per cent reduction in alcohol-related traffic fatalities, with an estimated 143 lives saved. For more tips and information on the summer CounterAttack campaign, visit the campaign page on icbc.com.

Local FEATURE BUSINESS WATERING 101 Help your lawn thrive through the dog days of summer Summer can take its toll on just about everyone. Even the most ardent fan of summer eventually grows weary of a heat wave, which can make something as simple as walking down the street seem exhausting. While human beings have their ways of surviving summer heat, such survival can be more difficult for your lawn and garden. Certain grasses and plants thrive in hot weather. But when the dog days of summer arrive, even those grasses and plants built to withstand the summer sun can suffer. That’s why watering takes on such importance in the summertime, when grasses and plants need water to avoid drying out and possibly even dying. The following are a few basic watering techniques to help homeowners keep their lawns going strong through the next summer swoon. • Water when it’s coolest. Watering when the temperatures are their lowest might seem counterintuitive. After all, homeowners might think their grass and gardens need water most when the temperature is at its highest. But watering when the temperature is cooler decreases evaporation, meaning your lawn will get the water it needs and won’t lose any to steamy conditions that cause evaporation. Effective watering can help a lawn and garden survive the dog days of summer. This is especially important when the amount of water you can use is limited by a drought restriction. You’ll want to make sure the water you can use is actually going to the lawn and not evaporating as you’re watering. Watering in the early morning or in the evening, when the sun is not as strong and the temperatures are generally at their coolest, also reduces the likelihood that your grass will burn. That’s because water attracts the sun, and a lawn that’s wet in the middle of a hot day might attract too much sun and cause the lawn to burn. • Recognize that not all plants are the same. How much water a plant needs and how frequently it needs to be watered largely depends on how deep its roots are. A plant with shallow roots won’t need to be watered for long periods of time, but it will need to be watered frequently, whereas a deep-rooted plant like a tree or a shrub will need to be watered for long periods of time but not as frequently. Research the plants around your property to determine the depths of their root systems and water accordingly. • Lean on mulch to retain moisture. Mulch is often considered an aesthetically appealing addition to a landscape, but it serves a practical purpose as well. Mulch retains moisture during the hot summer months, reducing the need to water -- a valuable benefit during a drought restriction. Mulch also makes it difficult for weeds to grow, which can keep homeowners from spending hot summer afternoons pulling weeds out of their gardens and flower beds. • Strategically locate sprinklers. Sprinklers should be located so no water is ending up on the driveway or sidewalks around your property. Watering the concrete or asphalt is wasteful, and that’s water that could be going toward your plants. When watering by hand, be sure all of the water is finding its way to plants and not on any walkways. Successfully watering a lawn and garden during the dog days of summer can greatly reduce the risk of ending summer with a lawn full of bald spots and a garden filled with wilted plants.

Mainstream Canada wins appeal

NEWS/www.courierislander.com

Mainstream Canada was vindicated Monday when the BC Supreme Court of Appeal ruled against anti-salmon farming activist Don Staniford. The Supreme Court of Appeal also granted Mainstream Canada special costs based on the activist’s behaviour during the trial. “The appropriate way to punish Mr. Staniford for his reprehensible conduct in the litigation is to award Mainstream special costs against him,” wrote Justice David Tysoe in the judgment handed down Monday morning. The company originally took the activist to court

because his attack did not just affect Mainstream Canada. “It affected our employees, their families, our suppliers and our partners. A company is not just its registration number. The soul of a company is its employees, and we need to stand up for them and defend them against malicious and defamatory attacks, and against cyberbullying,” said Laurie Jensen, Mainstream Canada’s Communications and Corporate Sustainability Manager. “All of the readers of the publications were not in a position to make up their own minds about the merits of what Mr. Staniford said in the publications. Accordingly,

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

one of the elements of the defence of fair comment was not satisfied, and the defence was not available to Mr. Staniford. The judge erred in dismissing Mainstream’s defamation claim,” wrote Justice Tysoe. “I would allow the appeal and set aside the judge’s order dismissing Mainstream’s claim and her costs order. I would grant the injunction requested in Mainstream’s amended notice of civil claim, and I would award Mainstream general damages in the amount of $25,000 and punitive damages in the amount of $50,000. I would award Mainstream special costs of the action and party costs of this appeal.”

Summer health tips Summer means more time in the sun, swimming and other outdoor adventures. And, if you’re not careful, it can also mean exposure to sunburn, heat rash, seasonal allergies and a variety of other summer hazards. “At the pharmacy, we know it is summer because customers stop by to ask about treatments for itchy insect bites, how to stop the spread of poison ivy their child picked up over the weekend or how to deal with an irritating heat rash,” says Dan Wolansky, pharmacist at Campbell River’s Real Canadian Superstore®. “We’re always happy to help and to point people to treatment options.” Wolansky offers the following tips for some common summer ailments: * The best treatment for sunburn is prevention; use at least SPF 30 sunscreen before spending time outside. The pharmacy team can help you choose the most appropriate sunscreen for you and your family. * If you get a sunburn, stay hydrated, use an aloe vera gel and take over-the-counter anti-inflammatories if needed. Seek medical attention if your sunburn causes nausea, fever, severe chills, swelling, dizziness or infection. * If you’re in the sun and see a rash developing, it may be heat rash. Get out of the sun, remove any closefitting clothing, and let skin air-dry; topical treatments used for bug bites and poison ivy can also be used to treat heat rash. * To stay free of bees and other stinging insects, including mosquitoes, avoid heavy perfumes and scents especially florals and wear light-colored clothing with no floral patterns; ask your pharmacist for an age-appropriate DEET-containing insect repellent. * If you get an insect bite, use a topical treatment such as calamine lotion to reduce itchiness and take an antihistamine to decrease allergy symptoms. * If you end up one of the unfortunate ones who didn’t spot the poison ivy or poison oak plant in time and you’re rash is not too serious, calamine lotion will help to reduce itching; an antihistamine or oatmeal bath can also ease the symptoms. For more serious reactions, seek medical treatment. Wolansky and the pharmacy team at Real Canadian Superstore®are available to help you find the right treatment for your summer ailment. Wolansky brings 36 years of experience to the Campbell River community and the team can offer personalized advice in multiple languages including Ukrainian and Russian.

River City Elite bring home 12 medals from BCs By Ken Zaharia Courier-Islander Sports Editor Once again River City Elite proved to be the cream of the track and field crop this time at the 2013 BC Championships Jamboree held in a very hot Kamloops Friday to Sunday. You could say the five River City Elite athletes, including Brendan Hoff, Gregory Hay, Hayley Hunter, Kristin Gage and Olivia Hill, were just as hot as the Kamloops weather coming home with 12 medals including seven gold, two silver and three bronze. “All and all the weekend was a productive, fantastic fun weekend for everyone there,” said River City Elite head coach Dale Trenholm. “All the hard work the athletes did in training, the parents’ support, athletes in the club supporting each other, the coaches, and competition all spring and summer definitely paid off for them with a fine showing for the club and Campbell River. Despite the adversity we face with training facilities I would say we did Campbell River proud.” Once again leading the way was 15-year-old long distance specialist Brendan Hoff who came home a double gold medalist. Saturday Hoff was in great form in the 1,200m, capturing gold and setting a new BC Championship record along the way with a time of 3:13.88. “His adversary all year, “Josh”, tried to stay with Brendan, but with 500 metres to go Brendan started to pull away and to never look back,” said Trenholm. “He ran a perfect race to not only win the race, but also make Team BC. He can now put his skills against the rest of Canada August 9th weekend at Nationals in Langley.” Hoff completed his gold medal run by capturing the 2,000m title Sunday. Currently Hoff has the fastest times in Canada, so he’ll be a favourite going into Nationals. “All he (Hoff) needs to do is bring it race day like he has all year in big meets, which of course, will give him the best chance to win gold in both races. I don’t anticipate anything changing. He has been very consistent all year,” added Trenholm. Hay, 14, tied his personal best in his 100m heat race to reach the finals where he improved on his PB to finish fourth. “He was ranked fifth so he did very well,” said Trenholm. “To me this showed consistency and speed

Sunday was Hay’s time to shine by winning gold in javelin and bronze in high jump. This is only the second year Hay has been throwing javelin. Hunter, 14, was in top form on Sunday with a PB and gold medal javelin throw of 39.64 metres, just .36 of a metre off of 40. “She was happy with gold, but not happy missing her 40 metre goal,” said Trenholm. “Maybe this was good, and me teasing her, because she now wants to go to Nationals as a 14 year old competing against 15 year olds so she can hit the 40 metre mark. She said everything after that is gravy. She may not realize, this gravy could get her a gold medal throw because she is as of now, she

has the top throw in Canada in two age groups.” Gage, 14, was the busiest River City athlete competing in five events and bring home five medals including a gold in the 800m with a PB by two seconds. She also claimed silver in each the 300m and triple jump. And then added bronze in 200m hurdles and long jump. “She (Gage) did fantastic,” said Trenholm. “Her silver medal finish in the 300 was a exciting one, just edging out the third place girl by .07 of a second. I love it that she is our quiet, very competitive competitor.” Hill, 14, was taking part in her first BC Championship meet, and showed she belonged running her way to gold medals in each the 1,200m and 2,000m races. “She (Hill) ran a very strong 1,200

metre race Saturday with a 10 second PB,” explained Trenholm. “ She was in such good form that day; she would of beat the 15 year olds who ran that day. I was so happy for her. Her reaction was priceless after winning her first ever BC Gold medal. “She ran so well this weekend, I asked her if she wanted to run for the club as a independent to experience and better her time in the 1,200 and 2,000 at the Nationals in Langley – she said a big “yes!” With all the success River City Elite has had in their first year, Trenholm said it wouldn’t have been possible without a lot of local help and support. “I would like to thank Gord Hay and Nicki Hunter for all their hard work to help put this club together at the inception of the club in January,

and get it to where it is now,” said Trenholm. “Gord was the man that got us all the singlets, jackets, shirts, equipment and sponsors - Discovery Chiropractic, Home Depot, Bute Inlet Lodge, Island Fever Travel and Cruise, and Shoreline Orthodontics - to make this happen. Gord has also been a big help assisting me with coaching, and taking on high jump for the athletes. “We would like to thank Discovery Chiropractic for sponsoring River City Elite for any chiropractic services the kids needed. “Of course, without parent support and encouragement for us, the kids and their own kids, we wouldn’t be the team we are. Thank you parents.” River City Elite is still looking for sponsorship, go to www.rivercityelite. com to help out.

With a 168 point lead over Stormo going into the 25 lap main event, Fortier was guaranteed to win the Hornet B Mid season championship. After some early battling, Stormo would finally emerge as the leader on lap 10 and he wouldn’t look back from there, winning his fourth straight main event, with points leader Fortier finishing second. The closest battle was in the Hornet A division; #14 Kyle Fallowfield held a slim 85 point lead over #01 Kevin Lawrenuk. Before the night begun though, Fallowfield’s primary car blew its transmission, making him race a back up car. Lawrenuk would jump on the opportunity, winning the first A heat, and finishing second in the reverse. Fallowfield’s lead diminished to only 54 going into the 20 lap main event, and Lawrenuk would once again jump to an early lead and he wouldn’t look back from there. Fallowfield’s second place finish in a borrowed car would win him the Hornet A mid season championship by 37 points over Fallowfield. Two time defending Crash to Pass champion #01 The “General” Jeff May was in his usual spot coming into Saturday, holding a 149 point lead over his cousin #02 Matt May for first. #73 Sheldon Hopp took the first heat, with the reverse going to points leader May. With 163 points separating cousins Jeff and Matt going into the main event, meaning Jeff would once again be the mid season champion in the Crash to Pass division. After three early cautions, #73 Sheldon Hopp would start to pull away from the field and he would go on to take the 20 lap main event. Extra laps...The Wilroc Sprint cars will make their second appearance of the year on Saturday. These cars are the fastest cars on the Island, averaging lap times of 14-15 seconds, almost two seconds faster than the next fastest class. Accompanying these speed demons will be the I.M.C.A Modifieds, Dwarf cars, Bombers and the Motorcycles. The following long weekend marks the most anticipated weekend of the year, the Monster Trucks. Five high flying Monster Trucks will be attending two nights of amazing action at Saratoga. A full field of Crash to Pass, Hornets, Roadrunners and Figure 8 cars will also be on the racing card over the weekend.

Tyees off to Provincials By Ken Zaharia Courier-Islander Sports Editor

The Campbell River Mosquito AAA Tyees are going to the big show. The Tyees gained a berth to the 2013 BC Provincial Mosquito AAA Baseball Championship by rolling up a 22 record at the Vancouver Island Regionals held at Nunns Creek Park on the weekend. Provincials run Aug. 2-5 in Mission. Playing in their home park, the Tyees opened with a tight 5-4 loss to Oceanside. “It was a great defensive battle between the two teams, with base runners being thrown out and picked off left Photo submitted and right,” said Tyees head coach Hugh Gurney. Tyees team members include, back left, Hugh Gurney head coach, Josh Hollinger pitching coach, Jacob Doherty, Ethan Millar, Offensively for the Tyees, Robert Gurney hit a triple in Riley Sutherland, Greyer McLain, Fergus Hall, Jayden Smith and John Baker assistant coach. Front left, Ryan Higgins, Austin the second inning and Jordan Baker banged out a double Gurney, Owen Parker, Jordan Baker, Robert Gurney and Jayce Hudak. in the third. Jayce Hudak was named Tyees game MVP for his solid defensive efforts throughout the game. The Tyees fought back with an 8-7 win against Victoria in what was a must win second game. The Tyees came out swinging and got their bats working with Greyer McLain having a three hit game including a triple and two singles, Jayden Smith had three singles, Austin Gurney and Ryan Higgins had two each, Owen Parker and Baker both had doubles. “The real story of the game was the pitching efforts of Ethan Millar,” said Gurney. “He was brought in the top of the fourth inning to relieve and proceeded to mow down the Victoria batters over the next two innings.” Millar finished with five strikeouts and game MVP honours. In game three, the Tyees topped Nanaimo, 13-5. The Tyees got solid pitching from Parker throughout the first three innings to set the tone en route to their second win of the tournament. Parker took home the MVP for his efforts. In their final game the Tyees fell 21-10 to Regional champion Duncan. Gurney said his squad played some of their best ball in the game, putting the strong Duncan squad on their heels early in the game and led most of the game. Unfortunately they ran out of steam and Duncan staged a late rally with two outs that saw them score 11 runs. Jayden Smith was named MVP as his pitching baffled the Duncan batters through four innings. The Tyees would like to thank Windsor Plywood, Keep Your Shirt On All In One Party Shop Windsor Mill Sales, EB Horseman and sons, Harris Little Caesars Pizza Annie Belcourt T-Shirts Nissan, Tsa Kwa Luten Lodge, Quadrate Ventures, Cape Mudge Boatworks, We-Wai-Kai Campsite, Quality Foods, London Drugs Aroma Coffee Superstore and the city of Campbell River for all their Lordco BC Liquor Stores sponsorship and support for the zone tournament.

CHURCH SERVICES DIRECTORY Wisdom and Well-being

Philosophers have almost always touted the connection between wisdom and happiness. Aristotle, by defining us as rational animals, comes close to guaranteeing that through the correct exercise of reason we might become happy. But, Aristotle was aware that our passions and appetites could lead us astray, since they are essentially irrational, and so for Aristotle, the good life requires the correct use of reason in practical matters, what he calls “phronesis” or “practical wisdom.” This practical wisdom is the result of a lifetime of experience. Aristotle says that no young person can be truly wise in the ways of life because he has not experienced enough of it. Likewise, the book of Proverbs is addressed to the moral education of the youth, repeatedly saying such things as “Hear, my son, your father’s instruction,” and “My son, do not forget my teaching.” (Proverbs 1:8 and 3:1) The connection between practical wisdom and well-being has been empirically verified by the psychologists Richard Nisbett, Igor Grossmann and others. They defined practical wisdom as consisting of 5 aspects: 1) willingness to resolve conflict; 2) willingness to search for compromise; 3) recognition of the limits of personal knowledge; 4) awareness that more than one perspective on a problem can exist; and 5) appreciation of the fact that things may get worse before they get better. It turns out that the wiser we are, when judged by these criteria, the happier we are. — Christopher Simon

Special Olympics allows me to be me. It is ok to be autistic in Special Olympics. It’s ok to be me. I am 19 and I am 6’5” and 377 lbs. I am an athlete. I am a Power Lifter and I get to compete as a Special Olympic Athlete at the B.C. Power Lifting Competitions. I have won gold medals by working hard and by facing my fears. I don’t like loud noises and crowds but by being able to compete I am working to overcome my fears. It is not easy to be in front of people and compete. I get very nervous but I know as an athlete, that I can face my fears and I can do my very best. I am more than autistic, I am an athlete. Note Callum realized his dreams by winning a Gold medal at the Special Olympics B.C. Provincial Summer Games in Langley on July 13, 2013. This marks the beginning of great things to come for Callum.

What it means to be the parent of someone special! When you become a parent, all you want for your child is an opportunity. An opportunity to be whoever they want to be. You want your child to be able to play, to experience that power of Sport. But when you learn that your child is different and is not able to compete, to play the same as other children, it hurts. It hurts deeply. Dreams are gone. Fear takes over. You try to find something, to support your child, to share with them your passions but always fear is there. Soon they age out of youth sports and you don’t know what is next. But when you find Special Olympics, you find a family. You find a family of athletes, volunteers and supporters who want the very best for your child as well. People who see beyond the disability and see the ability. People who help you see more than you are able to yourself. People who are willing to understand your child and who understand your fears. People who understand that Success starts with the first step not the last. That Success is built on having the opportunity to participate. The opportunity to play. Special Olympics has changed my life and the life of my family. We are incredibly proud to be a part of Special Olympics. The gift I get by being part of Special Olympics feeds my soul and makes me a better person every day that I am alive and I thank each and everyone of you for allowing me to be part of the Special Olympic Family.

Kerr wins three times By Ken Zaharia Courier-Islander Sports Editor

The Storey Creek Ladies Club will be hosting another one of their popular Ladies Open Night with a fun scramble, buffet and lots of prizes Thursday, July 25. Phone the Pro Shop at 250-923-3673 to sign up. Last Tuesday the game was Hidden Holes (Pro Shop picks nine holes to count) and what a round it was for Cathy McCartney. Not only did McCartney tie for first with Mary Jane Kerr, she also received a Golf Pin for breaking 90 for her first time. There was a tie between Linda Hayes and Sue Del Casino for second. Low net went to Tracy Catroppa, followed by Gerry Gillis in second, Yvonne Hewett in third and Cindy Stewart in fourth. On Thursday the ladies club was looking for Trouble (accumulate points for getting into hazards). Kerr and McCartney continued their hot play, by once again tying for first place with a meager one point each. Dorothy Ammerlaan was second, Lisa Woodward third, Angela Lee and Iona Wheatley tied for fourth. On Sunday it was Guess Your Score day (guess your score before the game starts and those closest to it win). In first, with only one shot off their score, were Michelle Palmer and Kerr who made it a hat trick of top spots for the week. Tying for second were Linda Rees, Faye Baxter and Deb Hutchinson. Julia Free had a superb round of 83 - she did not guess that would be her score.

‘Bike for the Children Tour’ leaves CR Aug. 3 Arelene Lihala and Jennifer Olsen, will be embarking on a 265 km “Bike for the Children Tour” from Spirit Square in Campbell River to Victoria’s Inner Harbour, Aug. 3-4, for the children at Chikondi One Heart Angels Orphanage, in Malawi, Africa. Arelene is the founder of the orphanage, which opened in July 2012. She travels to Africa to work directly with the children at the orphanage who would not have survived without the critical personal care and love that she unconditionally provides. “When I am working at the orphanage words can not describe the feelings I experience everyday when spending time with the children playing, giving, love, joy, and peace in my heart,” said Lihala. Jennifer’s passion lies within connecting with children on a deep, spiritual level. Her love and commitment is to the children of Africa and she is a dedicated team player. “Our amazing loving dynamic team of philanthropists volunteer their time to make a positive difference in the lives of the children at Chikondi One Heart Angels Orphanage,” added

Lihala. “It is with joy and heartfelt love that the children found a special place in our hearts. They truly fill our hearts with so much compassion and are a miracle.” The two Campbell River woman are raising funds for food, health care and education. “Our focus is to provide a sustainable home for the orphans, and our work has been vital for the orphan’s healthy growth so they can develop their own sense of self and personal hope,” said Lihala. “The Malawi children are very simple, they show their appreciation for the smallest of things by their kindness, joy, and love.” Jennifer and Arelene would like to thank Club Fitness, Health Way, and Outdoor Addictions for sponsoring their endeavour...come out on Aug. 3 and cheer them on “For The Children”! All pledge amounts are welcome and 100 per cent of the funds raised will go directly to help the children.

Improved access to service at StudentAidBC The latest phase of $3.2-million modernization plan at StudentAidBC has brought a new dashboard function online, making the loan-application process faster and easier, and enabling students to see the up-to-the minute status of their loan applications. This announcement came Monday from Advanced Education Minister Amrik Virk, who is enthusiastic about the upgrade, stating, “It means quicker and easier access for students so they can check on their account whether they’re at school, at home or on the go.” As detailed on the Government of BC website, the new dashboard offers students access to the status of their applications, grants and loans in real time and employs email correspond-

ence – rather than paper – resulting in immediate student notifications. Virk explains, “Our goal is to provide a self-service student portal and eliminate paper to streamline transactions and improve communication so students can get their funds more quickly, enabling them to focus on their studies.” In terms of paper reduction, the impact of the new system is significant. Paper-based transactions at StudentAidBC totalled nearly 400,000 last year, and system upgrades are expected to reduce these by 90 per cent. So far, the shift to online applications and associated forms has brought down paper and printing costs for 2013-14 student loan applications by 56 per cent.

Cortes Island author up for Booker Prize Cortes Island author Ruth Ozeki and two Canadian-born expats have been nominated for the prestigious Booker Prize. There are 13 authors competing for the prestigious literary award, a field heavy with new talent. Ozeki, who splits her time between Whaletown, B.C., and New York, is in the running for “A Tale for the Time Being,” while Montreal-born Alison MacLeod’s “Unexploded” and “The Luminaries” by Eleanor Catton, born in London, Ont., also earned nods. The list also includes “Harvest” by Britain’s Jim Crace, “Five Star Billionaire” by Malaysia’s Tash Aw and Irish writer Colm Toibin’s “The Testament of Mary.” The nominated books are from Britain, Zimbabwe, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, Malaysia and Ireland. Americans are ineligible for the prize, which is open to writers from Britain, Ireland and the Commonwealth. But several of the books are by U.S.-based writers, including “The Lowland” by Jhumpa Lahiri — born in Britain to Indian parents

— and “TransAtlantic” by Ireland-born Colum McCann. Also on the list are “We Need New Names” by NoViolet Bulawayo; “The Marrying of Chani Kaufman” by Eve Harris; “The Kills” by Richard House; “Almost English” by Charlotte Mendelson; and Donal Ryan’s “The Spinning Heart.” Judging panel chair Robert Macfarlane said the list was the most diverse in prize history, “wonderfully various in terms of geography, form, length and subject.” Seven of the books are by women, three are first novels and only two of the writers, Crace and Toibin, are previous Booker finalists. The organization will announce the shortlist on Sept. 10, and the winner of the 50,000 pound ($75,000 prize) on Oct. 15. Founded in 1969, the award is officially known as the Man Booker Prize after its sponsor, financial services firm Man Group PLC. Last year’s winner was Hilary Mantel for her Tudor political saga “Bring Up the Bodies.” Glacier News Service

I did however enjoy many electives offered by the busiMurray Callaghan ness faculty. Economics was at the top of the list. An imperfect study of cause and effect. At the heart of an individual’s prosperity are financial habits. Not complicated. Live below your means and save some. If your expenses rise and your income does not you have to suck it up and spend less. Simple does not mean easy. Governments and politicians don’t always follow this rule and usually get persecuted for spending more than what they bring in. “Balancing a budget is not complicated,” the taxpayers say, “I have to do it with my own household.” Disagree with them and you might find yourself on the outside looking in. Better to just nod approvingly and save the debate once elected. The slow motion train wreck that took place in many parts of Europe was fundamentally a case of governments promising and delivering more than the taxpayer could afford year-after-year. Unchecked and over time enter austerity, or belt-tightening by government. A culmination of not controlling your own destiny because they didn’t do their job. Appoint a bankruptcy trustee with a basket of golden eggs but with strings attached. Drastically reduce spending, terminate tens of thousands of government employees, cease capital projects, cut income support programs, slash public pensions. Does austerity work? For individuals absolutely. For global economies no, so reasons Christoper Ragan, a 24 year professor of macroeconomics at McGill University. “We have to recognize that one person’s spending is another person’s income-what economists call the circular flow of income and expenditure. Cuts in government spending lead directly to cuts in GDP, at least until those workers find new jobs.” Unsustainable and rising government expenditures are problematic and must be dealt with on a pragmatic and long-term approach to balancing future revenues and expenditures. However, the goal of government-at least at the national/provincial levels should be to balance budgets over longer cycles by running surpluses in good times and be there to aggressively tackle the inevitable hiccups of an integrated global economy. With unemployment in some countries in Europe running at 30 per cent and GDP falling Europe’s tough love should be a history lesson and a wake-up call.
