$2,460 HELPS ‘DRIVE’ INCLUSION The second “Drive 4UR Community/School Program, Driven By (Steve Marshall) Ford” took place on Aug. 10, and for every test drive that took place, Ford made a donation of $20 to the fund. The fund targets charitable organizations, groups, teams and worthwhile community causes that are often underfunded. The Campbell River and District Association for Community Living teamed up with Steve Marshall Ford for the community event this year, and their band, “Inclusion” will use the donation to support their travel and performances at local school assemblies.

Stewardship award winners The City of Campbell River handed out its 12th annual Stewardship Awards Sunday at the Haig-Brown festival. This year’s recipients are:

NORTH ISLAND HOSPITALS PROJECT COMMUNITY INFORMATION SESSION Island Health (the Vancouver Island Health Authority) is hosting another community information session for the North Island Hospitals Project. This meeting will include information about the ongoing site preparation work making way for the new $266 million, 95-bed Campbell River Hospital at the existing hospital site. We invite you to attend this information session to find out more about how the North Island Hospitals Project will support you and your family’s health care needs when these new state-of-the-art acute care facilities open in 2017. The event takes place as follows: Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. Thunderbird Hall 1420 Weiwaikum Road Campbell River, BC The meeting will start with a presentation, followed by a questionand-answer session. Island Health and the North Island Hospitals Project team will be on hand to answer questions and gather input. The North Island Hospitals Project would like to thank the Wei Wai Kum First Nation for the use of Thunderbird Hall for this important public meeting. For more information on the North Island Hospitals Project visit the Island Health website at: www.viha.ca

Air Quality/Alternative Transportation: •Clean Sweep Chimneys (Air Quality) Clean Sweep Chimneys was chosen this year for their twoyear commitment to the City of Campbell River provincial woodstove exchange program to deliver Burn It Smart programming. Their volunteer participation has included radio interviews, presenting evening workshops and making home visits as part of the City’s Master Burner program. Pesticide Free/Urban Agriculture •Chelsea Holley (Laughing Willow Community Garden) Chelsea Holley is the recipient for her four years of commitment as the coordinator of the Laughing Willow Community Garden and she was also nominated in this category last year. Holley was instrumental from the beginning, developing the concept

and liaising with the many community partners including Greenways Land Trust and the City. Her ability to work with new gardeners, trouble shoot arising issues and bring about positive outcomes is a tribute to her character and a benefit to the community.

Water/Energy Conservation: •Loeb Family (Energy Challenge) The Loeb family (Jeremy, Jennifer, Gideon, Hannah and Daniel) are this year’s recipients receiving two nominations; individual family members (Jerry and Gideon) were also nominated in other categories. The Loebs enthusiastically participated in the 30-day City Energy Challenge reducing their energy consumption by over 50% from week one to week four of the competition. They also organized a lights out event at their workplaces and created a very impressive bike powered blender. While impressive, their low impact accomplishments have a long history and it is worth noting they have been living car free for over a year. They’ve taken canoes camping by bike and grocery shop by bike. Gideon and father Jerry have

logged 2,700 km each to school over 900 days (and counting).

Habitat Protection/Creation: •Clay Carlson Clay Carlson has recently retired from his teaching position at Timberline School. He was nominated both last year and this year for his work to create a Stewardship Day experience at the school with speakers, films, activities and field trips where students get hands on experience with experts and stewardship groups. This is no small undertaking considering the number of teachers, students and outside participants. The success of the annual event, now three years strong, is a reflection of his stewardship ethic and building a community conservation ethic is no small feat in today’s culture of consumerism and focus on the individual. Waste Reduction: •Kathleen Sharpe and Bud Logan. Bud and Kathleen received multiple nominations this year for their efforts to address illegal dumping in our community, in our backyards, recreational areas, green spaces and parks. In June 2013 the group cleaned a section of Duncan Bay Logging Road removing 21 tonnes of garbage from the roadside, down the banks and along Kingfisher Creek. Future sites for clean up are being explored as well as ongoing media coverage and exposure of polluters, and the identification of dumping sites. Currently about 20 to 25 volunteers participate in these efforts.

Youth Special Recognition: •Ecole Phoenix Grade 6/7, teacher Dionne Lapointe-Bakota. The Ecole Phoenix Grade 6/7 class under the leadership

of Dionne has been studying shoreline /river ecosystems as part of their curriculum. For an action project, they adopted a local beach in front of the Maritime Heritage Centre taking note of the many plants and animals. They also hosted a booth at this year’s Ocean’s Day in June, completed a shoreline cleanup and they’ve contacted Greenways Land Trust to host their own broom bash. There is nothing as valuable as paying attention to the community green spaces that are literally on our door step. Dionne inspires Quadra Island naturalists through her contribution to the Junior Naturalists program. Environmental Excellence: •Leona Adams. In addition to her plaque, Leona’s name will be added to the larger plaque that hangs in City Hall recognizing outstanding environmental achievement. One of her nominators noted Leona’s number of years of service as “decades” and the span of activities she is involved in is inspiring. Leona’s is the president of the Campbell River Environmental Committee. In this role she tackles very complex and technical water quality reports in order to protect the Quinsam Watershed. She has coordinated the Campbell River shoreline clean-up with other partners, participated in broom bashes for years and attends many city-led meetings seeking community input on everything from OCPs to storm water planning and development applications. For the past year, Leona is also leading the charge to address the extensive habitat damage caused by non-migratory, non-native Canada Geese in the Campbell River estuary. Another one of her nominators described Leona as not only talking about protection but also taking action. She is passionate and no detail is too small to escape her vigilant eye. — from speaking notes by Stacey Larsen the community stewardship advisor with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans.

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 Warriors of a different kind There weren’t any suits and ties at these award ceremonies. No fancy dresses. None of the glitzy stuff you would see at other such events. There was wind and rain and falling leaves. Most people wore rubber boots of some kind or another. There were toques, hats, red cheeks and some running noses. There were a few chairs arranged around a tent. But the awards, the annual stewardship awards given out by the City of Campbell River now for 12 years, are no less important than other award ceremonies. In fact, given the state of the planet, these awards are probably even a bit more important. They recognized individuals, families and groups whose initiatives helped make Campbell River and the world a better place in which to live. They were handed out, fittingly, at the HaigBrown festival on the heritage property of probably British Columbia’s leading conservationist — Roderick Haig-Brown. And they were handed out in conjunction with World River’s Day and the mighty Campbell, not far away through the trees, provided a melodic backdrop to the ceremonies. As Haig-Brown once said, “You can’t win a conservation war, but you have to fight it.” Thank goodness, then, Campbell River is blessed with having such dedicated warriors. Previous poll question: Is there room for residential development on the 3.5 acre site? 50% said no, 38% said yes and 12% said if it doesn’t take up too much room.

The Fountain of Youth can be fleeting

For a few days on my summer vacation all I did was hang out with my daughter Neala and her two teenage friends Loren and Julia. Well, I didn’t really hang out. I was the only one with a driver’s licence. And a car. And I was the only one with a wallet. It was great. I took them swimming to various locations, took them for lunch once or twice, treated them to ice cream cones and basically sat on the sidelines while they did their thing. The only time they really noticed me was when it was time to go somewhere or time for a treat. Except on one occasion. Between swimming trips one day we were all in the living room. Neala and Julia on the computer, Loren on the ipad. I was relaxing in the corner of the living room with a book. Then from the computer my daughter beckoned, “Dad! This boxer looks just like you!” “It does Neil, come and look,” chirped in Julia. I expected to find a picture of George Foreman on the screen but instead there was a profile shot of a young boxer who obviously hadn’t spent as much time with Mr. Foreman’s amazing grill as I had. I looked and waited for the punch line. The girls obviously had something

up their sleeve. that when I stood up normal, it looked But, no, they went on to explain why like I was a little bit pregnant. this young fellow looked like me. I temI even did a few body builder poses pered the flattery with the fact that all and to my surprise there was some boxers, with head gear on and adjusted definition between flesh and muscle on tightly beneath the chin, look something my arms and chest.

Of course the only problem was your bookmark!” she said.

“I do not,” I said. “Yes you do!” she said, “it looks just like you.” I could feel reality setting in, so I closed the book, making sure the book mark was almost fully hidden. Loren insisted I let her see it. And then the other two got in on it and said they wanted to see the bookmark. I refused at first but eventually gave in and showed them the bookmark. “It is you!” cried Loren gleefully. “It is not!” I said. “It sure looks like you Neil,” added Julia. “It does not!” I said. “Um, Dad, it does sort of look like you,” said my daughter. I closed the book quietly and set it down. I went to the closet, pulled out an old toque, put it on, went into the bathroom and looked in the mirror. The bookmark, actually, is one that commemorates the 40th anniversary of The Beachcombers. The CBC show stopped filming in 1991, before any of the three snots in the living room were born. And looking back at me from the mirror was, like the girls said, the guy on the bookmark. It was Relic.

He will be one of the participants on the construction and projects panel to talk about preparation and things like a skilled workforce. The Expo is designed as a business to business event. “I can’t say enough about our relationship with the Chamber and the development of things like the Major Projects Web Portal, and through that, details and updates on the John Hart project and the new field office building that are easily Photo courtesy BC Hydro accessible,” adds Watson.

Even before they have named the main contractor for the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project, BC Hydro has been generating a lot of economic activity in Campbell River. And that has led to the direct creation of about 100 jobs, says BC Hydro spokesperson, Stephen Watson. “I know how eager the community is, and so is BC Hydro, for the upcoming John Hart project construction,” says BC Hydro spokesperson, Stephen Watson. “What may not be well known is there’s quite a bit of work going on right now. We have the early site preparation works at John Hart, the temporary John Hart office space refurbishments going on at Campbell River Common, and the new field office building for our power line side of the business at Quinsam Crossing. Added up that’s about 100 construction jobs related to BC Hydro initiatives for contractors, many of whom are local.” BC Hydro says the average of about 60 jobs at Quinsam Crossing will continue through early 2015, while the approximate 40 or so for the John Hart works will slow down into the fall as projects are completed. BC Hydro plans to announce the preferred general contractor for the John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project Replacement later this fall and conclude with the award signing by the end of the year. “We received the final technical and financial submissions from the competing teams in early September,” says Watson. “When we complete our detailed review BC Hydro will publicly announce the preferred

Search continued for lost hikers in Strathcona Park

to end its search earlier in the evening. Ground and air search mustered at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Victoria’s rescue co-ordination centre had not been called to assist in the search. The hike is considered moderate to difficult in good weather. Both men are considered physically healthy, experienced hikers and were prepared to spend a night on the mountain, said police. They had a tent and provisions. The men were reportedly warned by parks staff about the impending storm. Mount Albert Edward is 2,093 metres high and is the sixth-highest peak on Vancouver Island. — Glacier News Service Penthouse Living!

ICET creates new niche with development of C3

A new type of corporation was born in B.C. this summer, and it strikes a balance between profit and social responsibility. Called a Community Contribution Company, or C3, the new business model satisfies a demand for socially-focused investment options. At their August board meeting, directors of the Island Coastal Economic Trust passed a motion that opens up ICET funding opportunities to C3s. “I applaud the Island Coastal Economic Trust for being the first to announce an amendment to their guidelines to support B.C.’s new blended business model,” said Social Development and Social Innovation Minister Don McRae. “A Community Contribution Company is a model that has never been available before in Canada so this move today is a positive step towards providing C3s with the support they need to grow and flourish.” The ICET Board of Directors say the C3 model is a great opportunity. “ICET exists to strengthen communities and

their economies through smart, focused investments,” said Board Chair Mayor Phil Kent. “C3s are a great match for this type of support, because they take a holistic look at what ‘economic development’ really means.” While job creation is always a key measure of economic strength, there are other important attributes of healthy, resilient communities. “For example, volunteerism is a crucial part of every community,” said Kent. “C3s can apply for-profit business principles to enterprises with a social good, and its that type of innovation that helps communities stay strong.” C3s will have to meet the same rigorous standards as all applicants when seeking funding partnership from ICET, Kent noted. To learn more about the C3 model, visit http://www.fin.gov.bc.ca/prs/ccc/ The Island Coastal Economic Trust is a $50 million endowment established in 2006 by the Government of British Columbia to help diversify the economies of central and northern Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.

Campbell River witnessed continued growth, reporting a 55% increase in terms of unit sales year-over-year for the month of August according to the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board. Comox Valley unit sales were up 26%; Nanaimo sales spiked by 62%; Parksville/ Qualicum sales rose by 14%; Cowichan Valley saw a 31% increase, and Port Alberni/West Coast experienced the largest growth, jumping 80% from last year. “Although we have seen significant month-

over-month increases in both unit sales and average pricing in most of our markets this month, when looking at these numbers on a longer term basis, we are still seeing a gradual upward trend indicative of a more balanced and stable market,” said VIREB president, Gary Gray. “We are encouraged that we have continued to experience slow and steady growth since the second quarter, and anticipate that consumer confidence will continue to increase leading into next year,” he stated.

Buying A Home That Needs Improvements? Are you buying a home that needs some upgrading? Or maybe you are interested in a home, but cannot afford the extra money needed to do the improvements it requires. If that is the case, then the Purchase Plus Improvements program may be the solution you need. This program allows you to make your home the way you want it through allowable improvements, immediately after taking possession. The great thing about this program is that it allows you

to do what you want now with as little as 5% down payment based on the as-improved value. This way you are adding value to your home now while taking advantage of low interest rates and one payment. The improvements you can do are endless as long as you are adding value to the property. Some examples include new bathrooms, flooring, windows, kitchens, electrical, plumbing, and paint. You will need to list the improvements you want to do and then get quotes for

the costs of the upgrades from a contractor or cost of the materials if you are doing the work yourself. One thing to understand is that you may have to pay the costs up front especially if you do them yourself. Sometimes contractors will do the work knowing you have funds available to pay them when the work is done. Once the work is completed, an appraiser will inspect the property before the extra funds can be released from the solicitor.

Local FEATURE BUSINESS Cleaning and maintaining carpeted floors Much like paint, carpeting can quickly transform the look of a room. Carpeting can be a durable flooring material, but it will need upkeep to look its best.

D.A.D.S Homes

• Excavation • Foundations • Renovations • Siding • Windows • Roofing • Kitchens • Bathrooms • Decks • Custom Homes • Commercial • Residential

Carpeting that will be in high-traffic areas, such as halls and entryways, may require the most TLC. Routine vacuuming is necessary to dislodge dust and dirt particles. But at some point a more thorough cleaning may be necessary. Vacuuming Frequent vacuuming will prolong the life of the carpet by preventing a buildup of particles inside of the carpet fiber that can eventually cause friction and sever carpet fibers. Use of a crevice tool and other attachments can enable cleaning in the corners where the carpet meets baseboards and moldings. When vacuuming larger rooms, divide the room into separate areas and tackle each area separately before moving on to another portion of the room. Take time when vacuuming carpet. Plush carpets will trap dirt more easily than a thinner or less dense carpet, so more passes of the vacuum might be necessary. Overlap strokes in a crisscross pattern to get at dirt at different angles. Pet hair and vacuumed particles of food can create odor inside of the vacuum bag. Therefore, think about adding baking soda or an odor-relieving product designed to be used when vacuuming. Treating spills Spills are one thing that homeowners in carpeted homes may fear. If not addressed quickly, liquid or food may permanently damage a carpet. It is adviseable to manage a spill as soon as it happens to reduce the liklihood that it will contribute to a permanent stain. Carefully blot up the spill until much of the offending item is removed before adding any type of cleaning agent. Test the cleaning product in an inconspicuous area prior to using it on the spill to ensure it will not damage or discolor the carpet. Work from the outside of the stain and move inward to keep the stain from spreading outward. Use a plush, white towel to blot up any remaining moisture and spill. The towel also will help to fluff up the pile of the carpet. Remove shoes Dirt and germs can be tracked into the house on the bottom of shoes. Eventually this material can be deposited on carpets, which then becomes lodged inside the fibers. To reduce the amount of dirt tracked in, make it a rule to take off shoes upon entering the house. If pets are the culprits of tracked-in dirt, keep a towel by the door and wipe the animal’s paws before allowing it to roam through the house. Steam clean to refresh If you don’t already own a steam-cleaner, they can be rented for a fraction of the cost of buying one. Together with steam, a cleaning solution is usually part of the procedure. The steam and cleaning product will loosen and dissolve dirt and then the dirty remains will be sucked up into a receptacle to be emptied. Steam cleaning is one of the easiest methods of thoroughly cleaning carpeting and reviving it to look as good as new. Many homeowners are quite surprised to see how much dirt can be removed from the carpet by using a steamcleaner. Intermittent use of a steam spot cleaner can help keep high-traffic areas of the home and stairs clean or treat a persistent stain that doesn’t respond to hand cleaning.

Use area rugs There is a misconception that area rugs are used in lieu of carpeting, but both can be used together. An area rug may be placed near an entryway to catch dirt from shoes before it is tracked Addressing spills quickly can prevent elsewhere in the house. Area rugs can stains from soiling a carpet. be used under a dining table where the frequent pulling out and pushing in of chairs may wear down carpeting. Eliminate static Static electricity can plague people who live in homes with carpeting, especially during cool, dry weather. Placing a dryer sheet on the bottom of a dry sponge mop and then running it over the carpet can alleviate static. This will help prevent those annoying shocks or even damage to electronic equipment from static shocks. Carpeting is something that can make a statement in a home. When maintained, it can look beautiful for years to come.

Hospital foundation golf tourney a great success

Team Photos by Neil Cameron

Despite the rain and wind the annual Campbell River Hospital Foundation golf tournament was a success Saturday at Sequoia Springs Golf Course. A major announcement was made that Bailey Western Star was donating $25,000 to the golf tournament. In the photos are the winning women’s team (top) with Alana Caldwell of the CRHF, the men’s team winners, above, and the mixed team winners at top right. At right, Courier-Islander Publisher Pierre Pelletier tries his hand at birdying McDonald’s Birdie who greeted everyone in the tournament on hole number 4. Pelletier missed the birdie on this one, and the other 18 holes.

The Tidemark Theatre begins its second season of the “Tidemark Lounge” on Thursday, Oct. 3. The “Tidemark Lounge” showcases local and emerging artists, and runs select Thursdays in the fall from 7 to 9 p.m. Last year the Tidemark Theatre Society began presenting artists in the lobby, and the series was so popular, the local non-profit decided to bring the series back for another year. Admission to the Tidemark Lounge is a suggested $10 donation at the door, and a 100% of the proceeds collected at the door go back to the artist. The Tidemark Theatre has donated the space and staffing costs for this event. This week the Tidemark Lounge will feature Vancouver’s Reid Jamieson, who shines his light with an incredible voice, therapeutic lyrics, and a magical way with melodies. A regular on CBC’s Vinyl Cafe, and winner of the grand prize for folk in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for his song Rail, Reid’s original recordings Staring Contest and The Unavoidable Truth features guests Sarah Harmer, Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas), Bob Eagan (Wilco, Blue Rodeo), John Sheard (Celine Dion, Dan Hill) and Anne Lindsay (Jim Cuddy Band, Blue Rodeo). “We are incredibly happy to support local and emerging artists in this way,” said a Tidemark press release. “We have donated the space and staffing costs for this event in order to provide local and emerging artists with a professional venue to perform, and we also wanted to create a space where we are cultivating arts and culture. “This is our way of giving back to the community.” Artists interested in performing in the Tidemark Lounge can submit their electronic press kits to tidemarklounge@ tidemarktheatre.com.

An example of the trash that people throw in wilderness areas. Inset is Bud Logan.

An App to track the trash There is some high technology you will want when you come across stuff people don’t want. TrashOut, an environmental project aiming to locate illegal dumps all around the world, is helping people and groups like Campbell River’s own Island Forest Stewards (aka Shame the Logging Road Dumpers) make an impact on the environment by offering free mobile apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone. Users can snap and upload location-tagged photos of the waste and surroundings, indicate the size and type of the trash and write and share any additional details they think might be helpful. The data, using GPS, can be used by local authorities or environmental organizations to clean up the illegal waste, although users are invited to rally their friends to get rid of the trash themselves. Bud Logan of Island Forest Stewards said that this initiative becomes his eyes in the forest. “What I like about it is you can report a site and submit a photo and I can see if it is a hot spot, a growing pile, and put up a camera,” Logan said. “And if you are out of range at the time you see a dump, you can still put the information in there and once you are in a Wifi area it will register it.” Logan said there are already 160 sites registered that need to be cleaned up, including a half mile trail into the forest behind Home Depot. “There must be ten tonnes of garbage there, it’s on the map,” said Logan, whose group has picked up 70,000 pounds of garbage in the last three months and “only just touched” what’s there. Logan recalls being knee deep in 1,500 diapers recently, and removing a 45 gallon drum of diesel in King Fisher Creek. “Solvents, buckets of dog poo, plastics which

do not break down; plastics are 80 percent of what we pull out and are the biggest problem.” said Logan. The other problem is attitudes. “I have had death threats,” said Logan. “One person I know told me off and said you ruined it for me now ‘what am I supposed to do with my garbage?’ Another one I caught red handed dumping yard waste and made them re-load it into their truck or else I was going to report them and they would get the $2,000 fine.” The group, who just received two stewardship awards from the City of Campbell River, plans to turn to education this fall in their efforts to stop illegal dumping on the logging roads and in the forests of our community. “We are going to be speaking in schools, get kids to recognize how wrong this is and perhaps shame their parents if this is happening,” said Logan. “With the help of Elaine Campbell-Jansen (the compost diva) at the compost center on Dogwood and Gale Gayle Bates,

who knows so much about recycling, along with my team’s knowledge of illegal dumping, we will be able to create a program that could be used in the school systems along with a slightly revised version to be directed toward educating adults. This program will be offered for use by regional districts on Vancouver Island. I look forward to working with and along side these incredible people.” In the meantime, the group is thrilled with the new app as it will make for some consistent reporting, on scene, rather than people reporting to the police, the city, the Ministry of Forests, logging companies — making information difficult to organize, or just not reporting at all. “Give me 10 years and I will have this Island cleaned up,” said Logan. “This is my island.” For more information go to http://www.trashout.me/mobileapp?hl=en sthomson@courierislander.com

By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

My brothers and I were recently engaged in a conversation about our childhood in which we all felt compelled to apologize for our youthful teasing and taunting of each other. What was interesting to me was that we all felt that in one way or another the teasing and striving with each other had made us more prepared to deal with life. One brother even expressed the worry that “we are so over-sensitized to emotionally abusive people these days that we are cultivating a whole generation of young people who are unable to handle any kind of threats to their fragile egos. When they are bullied they react in ways that are hugely disproportionate to the situation, i.e. suicides, mass shootings, etc.” Perhaps the teasing banter and rough and tumble play of childhood is preparation for life in a world that isn’t always sensitive to the fragile vagaries of our ego. It would be nice, albeit boring, if we lived in a world where everyone was always kind and deferential but until that ideal world arrives, perhaps we should let kids engage in the rough and tumble world of childhood in a way that will prepare them for the real world. Resolving conflict is an important skill that is best learned early in life. – Christopher Simon

Some enjoyed the show, some were the show By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander Some people were not themselves on Friday night at the Tidemark Theatre. Instead, they became Michael Buble, Jennifer Aniston, Beyonce, PINK, Jeff Daniels, Tina Turner, Arnold Schwarzeneggar’s mother and the Queen of England. Those who decided to see the show rather than be the show were entertained by the hilarious hypnotist Wayne Lee, a former Campbell Riverite now working out of Edmonton. One of North America’s premier Corporate Presenters, Entertainers, and Peak Performance Experts, Lee is a veteran of thousands of successful shows and presentations, a published author, and mentor to professionals of all walks of life. As a former five-time Canadian amateur wrestling champion and classroom instructor, Wayne was invited to return to his former community by the Centre for Spiritual Living in celebration of their 10th anniversary in the community. “Our centre is dedicated to helping individuals discover the spiritual tools and an inner Power that has the ability to transform lives and make the world a better place,” said founder Jill Brocklehurst. “We offer a practical spiritual

Our spiritual community is ready to embrace, love, and accept you as you are.” Earlier in the day, Lee hypnotized 99.7 the River radio host Rickie Tyler, on the air. During the Friday night event, participants were hypnotized on stage and during intermission where they went out to raise money for whatever charity they had created, including “People with Red Roofs”,“Clothes for Dogs Society”, “The Fitness of Cats”, “Checkers for Children Foundation”. and the “Ducks in Central Park”. On Saturday the Centre held a seminar “Set Your GPS for Success” which contained many of the same principles and motivational tools. Lee has become known for in the corporate world. Lee showed the participants how to wake up the power of their mind to focus on achieving personal goals and learn visualization techniques that reduce stress and increase relaxation, all while being entertained.

It’s an art form that can set you free By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander Barb Round’s journey has been as eclectic as she is. A registered nurse — turned community animator, turned community college instructor — lived in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories for 25 years prior to settling in Campbell River seven years ago. “We literally chose Campbell River,” said Round. “My husband and I spent five summer vacations driving up and down the Island and just felt Campbell River was the place for us to settle. It was the right size, it had the right “feel”. In many coastal cities for instance, you can live there and never see the ocean unless you specifically make a trip to the beach. In Campbell River, we see the ocean every time we go anywhere.” But it was what she saw in Canmore, Alberta that started a journey for Barb that, in her words, “hit me like a Mack truck.” “I have been a quilter for over 40 years,” said Round. “I went with a friend to see a sewing machine I was thinking about buying. It turned out that the lady was a Certified Zentangle ® Teacher. I saw her work and that was it. I was gob-smacked. I stayed up all night and wrote a business plan and went to Rhode Island to take the training. I am a graduate of the official Zentangle training provided by the developers of Zentangle, Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas.” Rick Roberts lived for years as a monk, Maria Thomas is a lifelong artist and master calligrapher. Together they developed Zentangle to encourage creativity. So nurse turned teacher turned artistan reinvented herself as an “Eclectic Zentangle Quilter.” “I am not a trained or professional artist and never thought of myself as an artist,” she says. “However, despite that apparent handicap, I am excited to be able to produce artful creations through

Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. Repetitive, simple steps are part of the Zentangle method. These steps support relaxation, focus and inspiration. It can be a wonderful daily ritual, said Round. “The majority of my students are ladies nearing retirement age,” said Round. “ They are often looking for new ways to express themselves creatively, for something new to add to their scrapbooking, journaling, quilting or something new to share and enjoy with their grandchildren.” Round has taught five or six times at a senior’s residence in Ottawa where her mother lives, and has also taught for Amica Retirement Homes in Victoria. “My oldest student is 93,” said Round. “It is absolutely delightful to have ladies in their 80s or 90s come into class saying that they haven’t an artistic bone in their body, then watch them light up as they discover that they really can create interesting designs with Zentangle. “I love watching them get excited as they discover new creativity.” Round teaches a variety of Zentangle classes, including “ZIQ” (Zentangle Inspired Quilting) and is available for home-hosted Photo submitted classes, guild or other group Teacher classes, corporate events and speaking engagements. focus and inspiration by unleashing For upcoming classes and events the artist within. go to http://barbroundczt.weebly.

claims should be verified before making any donations. * Don’t feel obligated to reciprocate a gift with a donation. Many charities send gifts, be it mailing labels or holiday cards, to prospective donors as a token of appreciation for past donations and as a way of encouraging future donations. Con artists are fully aware of this tactic and may try to imitate it in an attempt to defraud potential victims. No matter if the people behind those mailing labels or holiday ornaments are legitimate charities or con artists, you should not feel compelled to reciprocate a free gift with a financial donation. * Beware of solicitors pressuring you to donate. Reputable charities should not be on the verge of shut down if you fail to make a donation, so such organizations never pressure prospective donors into making donations. If a solicitor is pressuring you into making a donation over the phone or in person, chances are strong that this person is not representing a reputable charity. In such instances, hang up the phone or, if the solicitor is on your property, politely close the door, ask the solicitor to leave your property and contact the local authorities. * Send donations directly to the charity after independently confirming their address. When making charitable donations, those donations should never be given directly to solicitors. Donations should only be made after you have independently confirmed the charity’s address and mailed straight to the organization. Never make a cash donation, as cash provides no paper trail should you want to deduct your donation or should you learn that you were victimized by a con artist posing as a representative of a reputable charity. * Request personal information not be shared. Upon receiving a charitable donation, many charities share their donors’ contact information with other charities. Such actions are legal as long as no sensitive information is shared. But many donors would prefer their contact information not be shared so they don’t find themselves being inundated with solicitations from other charities. Donors can ask to opt out of having their personal information shared upon making a donation. This is especially important for seniors living on fixed incomes who simply cannot afford to support many causes no matter how compelling those causes are.

Campbell River woman invites everyone to her 70th to help ALS By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander Carol Dwyer is inviting everyone in the community to her 70th birthday party. She doesn’t know if this will be her last celebration. Carol was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) earlier this year and the symptoms are slowly taking their toll. ALS is a rapidly progressive, neuromuscular disease. It attacks the motor neurons that transmit electrical impulses from the brain to the voluntary muscles in the body. When they fail to receive messages, the muscles lose strength, atrophy and die. ALS can strike anyone at anytime, regardless of age, gender, or ethnic origin. It does not affect the senses, and only rarely does it affect the mind. The equipment costs for each patient average $137,000, while nursing and home care costs can be up to 10 times this amount. Established in 1981, the Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis Society of BC is a non-profit society. It was founded by ALS patients, their family members and caregivers, and health care professionals to meet the physical and emotional needs of those living with ALS.

The ALS Society of BC raises funds for both research and to provide direct services and support to those currently living with ALS. Until a cure is found, the Society provides patient services to improve the quality of life of those diagnosed with this disease by offering an extensive equipment loan program, support groups, and educational materials. There is no cost for ALS patients to register or to access their services. Carol is not asking for birthday gifts. She wants her party-goers to donate to the ALS Society of B.C. and in addition to a lovely afternoon tea, she will be selling off some of her jewelry and donating the money from Photo by Sian Thomson those sales to the Society. Carol Dwyer wants to celebrate her 70th birthday by helping raise money for ALS. “I don’t expect to make buckets of money but I do want to give back for everything I am receiving,” she said. The event takes place on her 70th birthday, Oct. 5 at the Trinity Presbyterian Church, 145 Simms Road, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, or to donate in honor of her 70 years and to acknowledge the ALS Society of BC, contact Nancy Dwyer at ndwyer@shaw.ca Receipts can be issued for any donations over $20. sthomson@courierislander.com

OBITUARIES BARTHA - Rose

COCHRANE - Joan Frances (nee Dale) June 22, 1923 - September 26, 2013

Our mother Joan Cochrane died peacefully with her family by her side on September 26, 2013. She was predeceased by her husband Jack Cochrane in 1999 and her brother Ron in 1989. She leaves to mourn her children Jean (Jim) and Don (Joanne), her beloved grandchildren Stephanie, Andrea (Alex), Rory, Charlie and Andy, her brother Jack (Jean), and cousins Barbara, Jack, Grit, John and Betty. Joan was born in New Westminster to Harry and Violet Dale in 1923 and grew up on a farm in Hatzic Prairie. She taught in a one room school house there before moving to Ocean Falls where she met and married Jack; they moved to Campbell River in 1958. Joan was a kind and warm hearted person with a delightful smile. She loved children and taught in a daycare for many years. Joan also loved her friends in Beta Sigma Phi. She enjoyed painting and became very proficient. Later she was very happy attending the Adult Care Centre. We are grateful for the compassionate care provided by James Bay Care Center in Victoria over the past few years. A memorial service will be held on October 3 at 2pm at St. Peters Anglican Church, 228 S Dogwood St. in Campbell River. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Campbell River and District Adult Care Society would be very much appreciated.

Rose Bartha passed away in the Campbell River Hospital on September 26, 2013 at the age of 70 years. Rose was predeceased by her husband Nick. She is survived by her children Marian (Brian); Les (Leigh) and Susan. Rose is also survived by her three grandchildren Jillian, Gavin and Zoey. Rose’s children would like to give a special thanks to the staff of New Horizons for their love and care for Rose over the last number of years. A special thanks to the staff at the Campbell River Hospital for their care for Rose the last month of her life. Donations in Rose’s memory can be made to the Campbell River Search and Rescue. A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Elk Falls Cemetery.

LUNDERSTEDT, ERIKA JAN 31, 1927 − SEP 11, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother Erika Lunderstedt. Predeceased by husband Ernie in 2004. She will remembered with love by her children Tom(Jo), Sabine(Barry), Liz(Graham), Angela(Bryan), grand− children Nikki, Megan, Louis, Giles, Julia, her brother and 3 sisters, many nieces and nephews, and many relatives and friends in Germany and Canada. A gathering of family and friends to be held Saturday, October 5 at 1 pm at Departure Bay Baptist church at 3510 Departure Bay Road., Nanaimo, B.C. to be followed by "Teatime". Special thanks to the staff and volunteers at the Palliative Care Unit at Nanaimo Regional Hospital.

On September 14, 2013 our Mother Mary Theresa Ross passed away in Campbell River. She was known by family and friends as Theresa/ Terry. Mom was the ma−TREE−arch of the Ross Clan (her six children) who always showed the love and forgiveness of God and at times cuss like the devil (laughter). Mom had a wonderful sense of humour and loved to laugh. Theresa in her younger years was raised in Scotland and at times in Ireland. In 1967, she returned to Canada with her six children. While living in the Yukon, Theresa received her chef papers, and while living here in Campbell River was greatly involved with Citizens On Patrol (C.O.P.S.) and received many awards from the community as well as from Ottawa. Theresa is survived by her sisters Lucy, Josie and Marie and her six children, ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren. In her passing she has left a great void in all of our lives and is deeply missed. We love you Mom and always will Lorna, Joseph and Paul

Ask Murray

the mate would free spool a 100 yards of line out before attaching a side planer to each line, and then set out an additional 25 yards which caused the lines to track some 30 degrees out from the boat. Finally, with four lines on either side, completing the spread was a centerline using simple monofilament and a small planer that was run out from a holder up high on the flying bridge. I was working up a sweat just watching this all set out without tangling! Spoons appeared to be the lure of choice and I was told in no uncertain terms that hootchies don’t work there, although they did use some of the new style flashtail ?flies?. Plugs, sometimes but not that day. Needless to say all the lines aren?t brought in when a fish is hooked, the boat keeps trolling along while the hooked fish is carefully kept away from the deployed lines. Not that we had any monsters, seven or eight fish with the biggest about six

pounds, all chinook except one steelhead, and all were released. Being the only fishing guide in the group, the fishing gods took their revenge and it was the other boat, fishing nearby, that came up trumps, returning with a pair of 15 pound chinook and a steelhead about half that size. Good looking fish too, with a mix of both hatchery and wild salmon found in the lake. One particular point of interest caught my attention — they pay great attention to the water temperature at the fishing depths and one of the downriggers was equipped with a battery-powered sensor/sending unit that enabled a read out in the boat. Might have to give that some consideration here, although the set-up isn?t cheap. Anyhow, it was an interesting experience seeing how big water salmon sport fishing is practiced elsewhere and I’d recommend it for anyone travelling there.
