Rock the Dogs vigil quadruples goal By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander What goes up must come down, and that is just what Maggie Tyerman-Norbjerg did on Sunday at 2 p.m., 24 hours after she climbed up on the Big Rock in Campbell River. But what kept going up was the total funds raised for the Rock the Dogs fund raiser. The final total pending any mail in donations is $4,096.25, four times her goal of $1000. Tyerman-Norbjerg was symbolically representing the experience of the “Reef Babies”, Jonah and Isaac, two dogs found stranded on a reef off the shores of Kyuquot two weeks ago. The RCMP admitted the dogs had been “relocated” after a young girl in that community was attacked by dogs. “They pose a risk to the public and cannot go home,” said Corporal Darren Lagan, RCMP Communications. “They need to be put down and not be in the company of humans. If the dogs are somewhat feral we relocate them and let them fend for themselves but we are quite rightly justified to euthanize dangerous dogs on the spot with our firearm. People have to put this situation in the context of where we are located. Kids here (in Kyuquot) play in the street, the street is their home. With the feral dog population, wildlife come to the community because they see the dogs as a food source. We have to protect the village kids and as long as the dogs keep multiplying it will continue to get worse.” There remains the question as to how the dogs got out on to the reef. The police said the dogs were dropped off on the beach. Their rescuers believe the dogs were not capable of, or Photos by Sian Thomson inclined to, swim out to the reef in the freezing After 24 hours atop the Big Rock, Maggie Tyerman-Norbjerg is helped down (left photo) by partner Rob Hazlett, left, and Bob Watts. An water. emotional and exhausted Tyerman-Norbjerg was greeted by about 50 well wishers at 2 p.m. Sunday including family members, her niece Continued on page 3.

Fire damages Lynnwood Road home Mo money to raise

No one was injured, but a single family home on Lynnwood Road sustained heavy damage by a fire Saturday. At approximately 4 p.m. on Nov. 23, Campbell River Fire Rescue responded to a report of smoke coming from the roof of a home in the 100 block of Lynnwood Road. “Once on scene, heavy smoke and fire was visible, and crews confirmed a fire

was underway inside the attic space of a single family home,” said Fire Chief Ian Baikie. “Quick action by crews contained the fire to the attic space where it originated, however there was extensive fire damage to a large portion of the attic space.” Fire investigators and an electrical inspector were on scene Monday morning

n o s r e P r e Riv

working to determine the cause of the fire, which has been traced to an electrical circuit in the attic space. Seventeen fire fighters responded from No. 1 and No. 2 halls with three fire engines and one command vehicle. “With the winter weather upon us, Campbell River Fire Rescue reminds residents to check to ensure they have working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms in their home,” said Chief Baikie.

Third lowest levels in history force Hydro to reduce flows The third lowest reservoir levels in history have forced BC Hydro to reduce the discharge from the John Hart generating station from about 82 cubic metres per second (m3/s) to about 67 m3/s. John Hart is now running at about 55 percent of capacity at a time of the year when it is typically running at full capacity. The river flow is about half of BC Hydro’s licensed amount of 124 m3/s when at maximum power generation. BC Hydro increases power generation and river flows in September for migrating and

spawning salmon and to also lower upstream reservoir levels in anticipation of the fall rains — this is done for flood risk management. BC Hydro went as high as about 120 m3/s for 10 days as a result of a storm at the end of September and for a system outage, with the need for more power generation output. BC Hydro reduced the discharge to 82 m3/s on Oct. 24. This slowed the lowering of the reservoirs but BC Hydro must now take additional corrective actions to balance reservoir levels and river flows over the coming months.

The Upper Campbell Reservoir/Buttle Lake is at 216.5 metres and dropping. It is about 1.6 metres below normal for this time of year. BC Hydro has been releasing about 82 m3/s through November but the upstream inflows into the reservoirs have only been about 30 m3/s. The storm system this weekend will make little difference in the situation and the weather is forecasted to turn dry and cool next week. BC Hydro has been working with

“Let’s not forget there was a little girl...” — Tyerman-Norbjerg Continued from page 1. After providing veterinary care to the two dogs, including neutering, they will be professionally assessed for temperament. “Since the RCMP have identified them as dangerous dogs, I cannot foster them out or adopt them until the professional assessment is done to clear them,” said TyermanNorbjerg. “And in addition to the attention given to Noah and Isaac, let’s not forget there was a little girl who was injured and traumatized by a pack of dogs wandering the streets there. We must send our blessings to her and her family, and also we must work to find a way to help this community address the dog problem there. We need a rescue program to get the dogs out and a spay and neuter program to go in there and help control the increase of street dogs and feral dogs because puppies are having puppies, and it is out of control.” Although the view was amazing, she has never been so cold in her life, TyermanNorbjerg said of her vigil atop the Big Rock. “I can’t even imagine what Isaac and Jonah experienced. I lost feeling in my

hands and feet several hours into it,” she said. Tyerman-Norbjerg wants to thank the people and the businesses who made this possible, by donating their time, talent, items needed for the event, prizes and gift certificates for the raffle. The local businesses are; Campbell River Pet Centre, Play’n Trade, Splash Body Care, Wei Wai Kum House of Treasures, Go Dog Go, Dogwood Petmart, Tim Hortons, Woofys, True Blue Pet Supplies, Hair Squared and Coastland Veterinary. “I would also like to offer a very huge thank you to Dr. Jim Proctor who, over the past couple of years has worked with Eleasha, Rob and I in providing vet care for the many animals we have brought to him,” said Tyerman-Norbjerg. “Going so far as doing surgery at 11:30 at night for an animal in need. This man is amazing, I am truly blessed to have his and his wife’s Carole’s friendship.” The volunteers for the event were Brittany Hazlett, Dawn Mills, Eleasha Chidley, Elaine Mills, Nikki Watts, Claude Jacques, Bob Watts, Emma Thomson, Rhonda and Melyssa Wykes and Dave Smith.

“Without this group of people, Rock the Dogs wouldn’t have been the success that it was,” said Tyerman-Norbjerg. “I’d like to give a special thank you to Kevin Weatherall for bringing dinner for all of us and for the dogs. And to Ella Nicolaye for making numerous trips to ensure that I was kept warm. The heated seat and multiple packages of hand warmers she brought played a key role in keeping me from completely freezing. “ If people want to donate to the Rock the Dogs fund, which will continue to help rescued dogs and hopefully the dogs of Kyuquot, contact Maggie at K-9 Designs 250-287-3033. sthomson@courierislander.com

“I am more and more convinced that our happiness or unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life, than on the nature of those events themselves.” Baron Alexander von Humboldt

Our View Victims all around After all is said and done, three parties were the victims involved in the intentional stranding of two dogs in Kyuquot Sound recently. The first victim is the 11-year-old girl who suffered an attack that brought RCMP officers to the community to pick up the dogs. The second victims were the dogs themselves. The two dogs, one obviously no more than a puppy, were taken by the RCMP officers and dumped off in the hopes that they could fend for themselves. The third victims were the RCMP officers. We’re not sure what their protocol for dealing with this type of situation in that remote area is. But it seems like they had two choices, use their service revolvers and put the dogs down or take them somewhere secluded and, well, hope against hope that they could survive by themselves. It is a harsh environment at any time of year, but especially with winter coming on, the two dogs were destined for a slow and painful death. In the end the RCMP officers in question were dealt a dirty hand. Any of their options were undoubtedly unpalatable. There are no veterinary or SPCA-type facilities there. Something must be done to alleviate the situation. The officers seemingly had to follow the rules however distasteful the consequences. The real question is, could you have pulled the trigger?

Cohos make parents smile

I was ecstatic when I saw the front page article “300 coho return to Woods Creek”!! My parents lived on the creek for over 30 years. When Mom moved in 2003, we had not

seen any coho in several years. Somewhere my Mom and Dad are smiling... especially Dad, an avid fisherman. Thanks to all who have made this possible!! Sandy Schruder

Time to deep six the two ferry boards By Les Leyne The blueprint for ferry cuts released on Nov. 18 shows how far into the details the government is reaching to save money. For instance, they want to cancel the 7 a.m. sailing from Alliford Bay on Moresby Island to Skidegate on Graham Island in Haida Gwaii. The blueprint analyzed that route and every single other small ferry run on the coast to build a case for each cut. That particular sailing runs at as low as five per cent capacity. Over the year, the boat runs at an average 20 per cent capacity. It carried 87,000 passengers and cost $4.81 million more than it made in fares last year. With similar profiles for every affected route, it looks like every single part of B.C. Ferries has been scrutinized. But there’s one component that is sailing clear of any curtailments. Predictably enough, it’s at the very top. The board of directors has weathered all the cutting that’s been going on lately. The more you look at the recent history of the corporation, the more you wonder why.

It’s obvious to all now that the government has retaken control and authority over B.C. Ferries. And if the government is going to set policy, as it did this week, what’s the point of having a board of directors? It’s a particularly valid question because it’s a fairly expensive board of directors. Board chairman Donald Hayes collected $100,323 for the year ending last March, according to the annual report filed with securities authorities. Eight other directors made between $25,000 and $51,000. The total cost of the board stipends was $442,000. They and their immediate family members also get travel passes. If the budget hawks are fine-tuning their targets to the point of looking at things like cutting the 10 p.m. sailing from Quadra Island to Campbell River, why aren’t they looking at the $442,000 that’s there for the taking? The board no doubt spends its meetings going over high-level policy and setting directions. But it also spends a lot of its time setting executive compensation levels. It was directly responsible for the bonus

payments that went to some senior executives last year. Those prompted Transportation Minister Todd Stone to intervene and demand a rollback, which was accomplished to some degree when ferries management replaced bonuses with holdbacks. It goes down as a bad decision by the board. It also goes down as a decision that was overturned by a cabinet minister. That’s become a routine part of the B.C. Ferry decision-making through the last few years of fiscal crises. The B.C. Liberal cabinet waded in to curtail salaries four years ago, then barged in two years later to ease plans for whopping fare hikes. Then it facilitated independent ferry commissioner Gordon Macatee’s idea for a comprehensive review of the financial crunch the fleet is facing. Then it essentially took over the response to those dire findings, conducting the entire process that led to the route reductions announced this week. It wasn’t B.C. Ferries that announced the route reductions, the end of the free midweek rides for seniors and the slot machines that

are coming. It was Transportation Minister Todd Stone. That news conference cemented the impression that the redesign made in 2003 to divorce B.C. Ferries from political interference just doesn’t make any sense any more. On paper, the corporation is overseen by a $442,000-a-year board of directors. And that board is overseen by another board, representing the B.C. Ferry Authority, which is the entity that owns the company on behalf of the government. That board cost more than $120,000 last year in stipends and held four meetings. Meanwhile, the fares and service levels and various operational details are overseen by the B.C. Ferry Commission, which ran on a $300,000 budget in its last reported year. And the whole confusing enterprise is overseen by a cabinet that steps in whenever it feels the need. There’s one person who seems to have full authority over B.C. Ferries. It’s whoever happens to be transportation minister. The other two boards of directors should go the way of the 11 p.m. boat to Blubber Bay. Glacier News Service

Last chance on food security Kerr, Samson switch seats on two city commissions

Do you care about food? Now is the last chance for input to the Strathcona Food Security Project, which is a joint initiative between Island Health and North Island College. The project will be closing its online survey on Nov. 30, and holding their last community conversation in Campbell River on Dec. 3 to discuss how everyone can have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their food preferences, and is produced sustainably. “The Strathcona Food Security Project is focussed

on finding out what strengths we have in our area, as well as the challenges that we face,” says Cynthia Bendickson, Project Coordinator. “We want to find out what people think about their access to food and what we as a community want to see happen in the future,” she adds. The results of the survey and the community conversations will be used to produce an action plan to address food security in the Strathcona region. Community conversations have already taken place in Zeballos, Quadra Island, Sayward, Gold River and

Cortes Island. The Campbell River conversation will take place on Dec. 3 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Maritime Heritage Centre. Admission is free, but registration by Nov. 29 is required to reserve your place. To access the survey and to register for the Campbell River conversation, please visit the project blog at www. strathconafoodsecurity.wordpress.com, or contact Cynthia Bendickson at cbendickson@ gmail.com or 250-202-1320. Surveys are also available inperson at local libraries in the Strathcona region.

Councillor Larry Samson has stepped down as chair of the City of Campbell River’s Community Services, Recreation and Culture Commission (CSRCC) and has taken on the role of chair of the city’s Public Safety SubCommittee. Councillor Ron Kerr is the new chair of the CSRCC. “I am extremely pleased with the progress made to date by the commission,” said Samson. “This dedicated group of volunteers has reviewed draft policies and made recommendations that relate to a number of council priorities, including the Street Entertainer Bylaw, Community Garden Policy and the formation of a Public Safety Sub-Committee.”

MP says bullying must stop The federal government has taken steps to fight online bullying. The proposed legislation would ban the non-consensual distribution of intimate images, empower the courts to order the removal of intimate images from the internet, permit the court to seize the computer, cell phone or electronic device used in the offence, provide reimbursement for victims and impose a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

Start Saving For Your Down Payment Now Transitioning from renter to homeowner is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make throughout your lifetime. It can also be a stressful experience if you don’t plan ahead by building a budget and saving prior to embarking upon homeownership. Budgeting is a core ingredient that helps alleviate the stress associated with money issues that can sometimes arise if you purchase a home without knowing all of the associated

costs – including down payment, closing expenses, ongoing maintenance, taxes and utilities. The key is to create a realistic budget based on your goals. Track your spending and make your dollars go further by sticking to your budget once it’s in place. Budgeting offers a step-by-step formula for figuring out how to best save your hard-earned money to invest in homeownership. Examine all areas of your life from entertainment to the type

of food you buy, where you buy your food and clothes, and how and where you travel. Also look at your spending personality and make necessary adjustments. Are you a saver, a splurger, a spontaneous shopper or a hoarder? Become smarter with your money and avoid impulse buying. If you can set your budget solidly in place before you head out home or mortgage shopping, you will be far more prepared to purchase your first home.

• Let your inner designer shine, but be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when arranging electrical items, such as lights and electronic decorations. Be sure to turn off the electricity to the supply outlet before working with outdoor wiring, and never run an electrical cord through a doorway or under a carpet indoors. • Look for the mark on decorations from an accredited certification organization, such as CSA Group, on animated displays, light strings and extension cords. Ensure decorations are marked and certified for outdoor use and follow the manufacturer’s instructions. • Choose flame-resistant decorations and don’t place open flames or candles near flammable materials, such as wreathes, trees or paper decorations. Never nail or tack lighting strings to a wall, as this may damage insulation and create a shock or fire hazard. Use insulated fasteners rather than metal nails or tacks that could damage wiring to hold light strings in place. • Keep warm by the fireplace but be sure your gas appliances are in good working order. If the pilot light or flame goes out, turn the gas off and wait five minutes or longer (see the manufacturer’s instructions) before attempting to relight. Be alert for unusual odors or flames when your gas fireplace is on, often indicating that the fireplace is not operating properly. In such cases, contact your dealer or licensed technician for servicing. • Don’t overload extension cords. Use heavy duty extension cords for high wattage decorations and large electronically-animated displays. Make sure your house is capable of handling the electrical load of multiple lights and decor.

SANTA’S HELPERS 1040 Cedar Street, Campbell River

The value of silence in our noisy and busy world is easy to overlook, and even though many of us would like a quieter environment, it can be almost impossible to find a truly quiet place in much of the modern world. Cars, trucks and motorcycles with loud mufflers are some of the worst offenders when it comes to disrupting what little serenity we have. Loud music and boisterous parties are perennial disturbers of the peace as well. Since loud and inconsiderate people are not likely to be convinced of the errors of their ways, holy men and women have always known the importance of sequestering themselves, going into caves or sojourning in the wilderness. Some religious orders even take vows of silence. Finding quiet time each and every day pays big dividends to our spiritual and emotional health, and probably our physical health as well. We should consider also whether our lifestyle is contributing to a quieter world or if we are one of those vexatious disturbers of the peace. — Christopher Simon “Make it your ambitionto lead a quiet life.” 1 Thessalonians 4:11

Provincial U18 rugby champions

Photo submitted

The Campbell River/Comox Kickers captured the British Columbia Rugby Union U18 Provincial Boy’s Championship with an exciting 31-29 victory over the Oak Bay CastawayWanderers Sunday. Team members include, back left, Jim Ebert (coach), Darcy Lindquist, Brad Doig, Brandon Grouchy, Foster Dewitt, Callum Passingham, Jackson Locker, Braydon Williams, Cole Penny, Kody Kryzanowski, Arne Neuman and Darren Munro (coach). Front left, Blair Schmelz, Dylan Coburn, Brandon Balon, Justin Thomson, Jimmy Ray Brazier, Trevor Caton, Dustin Schilton, Mack McNab and Monte Brown.

Combined Campbell River/Comox Kickers top Island powerhouse Castaways in final Playing against an Island rugby powerhouse, the Campbell River/Comox Kickers laid claim to British Columbia Rugby Union U18 Provincial Boy’s Championship with a dramatic 31-29 victory over the Oak Bay Castaway-Wanderers. And even more impressive is the fact the Kickers did it on enemy turf at Oak Bay’s Windsor Park Field Sunday. “Our plan was to eventually wear them down and then capitalize with our bigger players controlling the ball and game,” said Kickers head coach Darren Munro, who was assisted on the sidelines by Jim Ebert. “The lads did an excellent job of sticking to the game plan and executing what we as coaches had set

out for them.” Although, the game did not start off the way the Kickers had hoped as they gave up two tries in the first 10 minutes of play and found themselves behind 12-0. Showing some true rugby grit the Kickers fought back and narrowed the gap to 17-12 at the half time whistle. The Kickers’ game plan of using their superior size to wear down the smaller, yet very skilled Castaways team, was starting to work. The plan paid off with the game being tie up at 24-24 with 10 minutes to go and the Campbell River/Comox players controlling the ball and moving down the field. But even the best laid plans can

go sideways with a ball squirting out the side of a ruck and the Castaways were away and running. The Kickers defended valiantly but the Castaways were able to score and take a 29-24 lead. “It seemed that the supporters and coaches were more nervous than the players were, because when the boys came to centre to kick they had a very determined look on their faces as if to say ‘nobody is going to stop us now’, ” added Munro. With less than seven minutes to play the Kickers started their march down the field and after four solid minutes of controlling the ball Trevor Caton broke through the line and was running to the try line when he

was run down by a Castaways player. Caton was able to off-load the ball to Foster Dewitt who scored the try to tie the game at 29-29, with the convert to come. In rugby the convert is attempted straight out from where the ball is placed down in the try zone, or “ingoal area”. The convert was placed 10 metres in from the sideline and about 25 metres out, making it a very difficult kick. Caton stood over the kick and as soon as he struck it he knew it was good. “I had been having some difficulties kicking the past couple of weeks but as soon as it left my foot I knew it was good,” explained Caton. The successful convert put the

Kickers up 31-29 with three minutes to go. “That last three minutes was the longest of my life,” says Munro. “When the final whistle went the local lads were very excited to be Provincial champions. Strong games were played by all the boys.” Callum Passingham had an outstanding game finishing with two tries. Dewitt, Jackson Locker and Jimmy Brazier had one Kickers try each. The Kickers coaches would like to thank all the parents and volunteers for their continued support of local junior rugby, but most importantly they thank the players for all their hard work and commitment.

The Storm’s Brayden Taekema scores the game winner beating Comox goalie Michael Hails 21 seconds into OT Friday.

Storm undefeated in eight By Ken Zaharia Courier-Islander Sports Editor The Campbell River Storm are moving on up. The Storm rasied their unbeaten Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League streak to eight, thanks to a rare 4-4 draw with the Buccaneers Thursday in Nanaimo, followed by a thrilling 5-4 victory over the Comox Valley Glacier Kings in front of 1,000 fans at Rod Brind’Amour Arena Friday. With the win and tie the Storm are now 7-0-1 in their last eight games to move past Comox into second place in the North Division and now sit only three points back of first place Nanaimo. The 15-7-3 Storm have a game in-hand on the 17-7-2 Buccaneers. This Friday the Storm travel to Saanich to play the South Division basement dwelling Braves. The Storm are back at

Rod Brind’Amour Arena Sunday to play the Peninsula Panthers. Game time is 4 p.m. The Storm showed a lot of grit in coming from behind in both games. Thursday the Storm trailed 3-1 heading into the final 20 minutes. Campbell River goals from Josiah Friesen at 4:38 and Alex Brewer at 7:34, on the power play, tied the game up at 3-3. But just over a minute later the Storm found themselves trailing 4-3 and then culminating what was a wild two minutes, the Storm tied it back up at 9:18 on a Trent Johnson marker. Tied at 4-4, neither team could find the back of the net in the final 11 minutes of the third and the 10 minute overtime period. There is no shootout in the VIJHL this season. James Severs had the other Storm goal. Johnson also added a

#11 James Severs This left winger has been on fire the past 4 games, adding 8 points in timely secondary scoring to help push our unbeaten streak to 8 games. After a goal and a helper in a 4-4 road tie in Nanaimo, he scored twice and had an assist in a dominant performance in the 5-4 OT home win vs Comox.

Well done, Sevs!

pair of assists for a three point performance. Single helpers went to Severs, Ty Madden, Cam Olson and Beck Malenstyn. Jack Surgenor had the win in the Campbell River goal with Nanaimo outshooting the Storm 36-34. In Friday’s exciting overtime win the Storm relied on one of their big two up front Brayden Taekema. Trailing 4-3 heading into the third, Taekema tied it up with his 21st goal of the VIJHL season and then won it in OT with his 22nd coming 21 seconds in on the power play. Linemate Brendan deVries assisted on both goals to continue to lead the VIJHL scoring race with 46

points, Taekema sits in second with 39 points. Severs added a pair of Storm goals, Robbie Christensen rounded out the scoring. Dom Kolbeins and deVries each picked up a pair of assists, Johnson, Severs, Olson, Tyson Smith, Malenstyn and Christensen.

Bantam A Tyees off to a quick Div. 2 start The Campbell River Booster Juice Bantam A Tyees went over and up the Hope-Princeton to Penticton on the Remembrance Day long weekend to play in a tournament. That experience was an excellent extended training camp for the team as they went 3-0 in round robin play, beating Port Moody 6-2 (game MVP Dominik Bellefleur), Surrey 3-1 (MVP Lukas Lund) and Kamloops 6-3 (MVP Damian Rennie). The semi-final game was against Vernon (Tier 1). Unfortunately the Tyee alarm clocks didn’t seem to be set for Okanagan time as they were still rubbing sleep from their eyes as the linesmen were retrieving pucks from the back of their net. This helped the Tyees on Saturday, Nov. 16 as they hosted Nanaimo Clippers A2 in Vancouver Island Bantam Hockey League Division 2 regular season play. They made sure to finish their checks and keep their feet moving as they flew by the Clippers on a regular basis.

Jaxon Ward scored after the Tyee forecheck picked the Clipper RARE D’s pocket, assists to Rennie and Seth SUNDAY Parker. The 3-0 lead would prove to www.campbellriverstorm.com GAME be insurmountable to the Clippers as they Tyees rolled on to a 9-2 victory. One of the great things about sports is that on any given day, any team can win one game.

Inland Highway as they kept the pressure on the Tyee goal for an extended period. After a goal-mouth scramble and three or four whacks at the puck, JDF scored their only even strength goal with less than two minutes left in the game to take the lead 4-3. That turned out to be the game winner as the Tyees now sport an overall Division 2 regular season record of 4-1-0. “You often learn much more from failures than you do from success,” said Tyees head coach Scott Kratzmann. “We need to use the Penticton tournament and the game against JDF as learning experiences. Consistency of effort and staying out of the penalty box are simple but key elements to success. ”

JDF took advantage of their opportunities to score two power play goals and even the score at two before the mid-game ice cleaning. JDF took the lead with another power play goal, springing a breakaway from centre ice that resulted in a deke and tuck job on net.

Connect Grow Prosper Four ways to simplify your business, even as it grows Complexity is a common side effect of fast growth. This can creep up around the edges very quickly and lead to problems if it is left unchecked. The answer? Organization and simplicity. You can keep things running smoothly by conducting regular simplicity audits by going through the main areas of your business, simplifying and documenting. Here’s how: 1. Simplify your products and services. Make a list of your products and offerings, and compare it to your revenues. Is there anything that you almost never sell? Most companies find that the 80/20 rule applies

to their revenues: 80 per cent of cash comes from just 20 per cent of offerings. What would happen if you sold only the 20 per cent and eliminated the rest? 2. Simplify your offers and promotions. Old promotions can cause a major pile of junk after years in business. When you’re no longer using these promotions, they’re often just forgotten – but not by the Internet. Customers can still coming across your old promotions and becoming frustrated when what they thought was a great deal takes them to a

New RRSP plan We recognize that the ability to attract and retain valuable employees is very important to the success of businesses. One tool to help business with employee retention is the Chambers of Commerce Group Insurance Plan, which many of our members are currently taking advantage of. The Chambers of Commerce group insurance plan has introduced the addition of a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), ‘Futurestep’. A group retirement savings plan can help businesses be competitive and take care of your employees future financial needs.

404 or irrelevant landing page. Establish a process for closing up old offers. Redirect pages to one central hub. 3. Simplify your staff. Instruct everyone on your team (including regular contractors) to write out a list of their duties. Are there any overlaps? Are there any holes that get filled in by whomever happens to be around? Confusing roles lead to extra complexity in your business, and people can end

up dropping the ball. Meet with each team member individually, then the group as a whole, to clear up any confusion. 4. Make simplicity audits a regular process. Unfortunately, this isn’t a one-time event. Add simplicity audits to your calendar at minimum every year. A little proactive clean-up can add to huge gains in your business over time.

Enchanted Forest set for sixth year The Campbell River Hospital Foundation is holding its Sixth Annual Enchanted Forest Event and this year will hold it in the Tidemark Theatre. The event has become a favorite with the sponsors, with each trying to out-decorate the other. This year’s tree sponsors include Crown Pacific Developments, D’Arcy Frankland – Notary Public, All in One Party Shop, Ron and Carol Chapman, Steve Marshall Ford, Quay West Restaurant, Joanne Johnson – Notary Public, Discovery Laser, Kwakiutl District Council and Quality Foods. The event will run from Nov. 29 to Dec. 11 with the viewing of the trees open to the public during the Tidemark box office hours (Tuesday-Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.). Pictures of the trees will also be on the Hospital Foundation’s website, www.crhospitalfoundation.ca and its Facebook page. Bidding on the trees will take place through a silent auction, and the highest bidder on Dec. 11 will “win” the tree and all the décor that comes with it! Thank you to the following event sponsors, Tidemark Theatre, Quality Foods and the Eagle FM 97.3.

This idea a mo-brainer Sporting a moustache this Movember? Here’s another way to raise funds for cancer research and awareness. ElectroRecycle, BC’s small appliance and power tool recycling program, is donating $5 to Movember for every electric and rechargeable razor, beard trimmer and shaver collected during the month of November, up to a maximum of $10,000. The Island Return It Centre located at 1580 Willow Street is Campbell River’s local ElectroRecycle drop-off location. “Recycling old and broken electric razors is helping cancer research and awareness, the

environment and your upper lip. It’s a mobrainer,” says Julie Robertson, program coordinator at ElectroRecycle. “ElectroRecycle encourages British Columbians to make a positive impact on the environment by taking simple actions to reduce their waste,” added Laura Selanders, president of the Canadian Electrical Stewardship Association (CESA), the agency operating ElectroRecycle. “This is one example of how people can support recycling while also helping a cause that is so important both locally and globally.” For more info: www.campbellriverrecycles.ca.

MASTERS, Scott William

September 12, 1985 – November 28, 2010

It is with great sadness that on we say goodbye to John (Ted ) Fairfax. Ted was a familiar face to many in Campbell River as he stood in front of the fire at his family’s Seawalk Coffee Bar greeting friends and strangers alike. He entertained everyone with his humor and stories he would share about his life. He will be deeply missed by his brother Bobby (Kaarina), sister Ilean "Tootsie", wife Phyllis, son Dale and grandson Jonathan, daughter Kim (Harry) grandchildren Amber and Dalyn. Condolences to his CP Rail, BC Rail and Alberni Pacific Railway friends. Please come to a potluck celebration for Ted at FoggDukkers Coffee Bar on the Seawalk in Campbell River on November 30th, 2013 beginning at 1 pm. All are welcome. I would like to extend a special Thank You to our true dear friend Dr. Michael Meckin. Thank You for the borrowed time. It meant everything. Life isn’t measured by the breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.

Maybe it’s intuition But some things you just don’t question Like in your eyes I saw my future in an instant And there it goes… I think I’ve found my best friend I know it might sound crazy But I believe… I knew I loved you before I met you I think I dreamed you into life I knew I loved you before I met you I had been waiting all my life There’s just no rhyme or reason Such a swift change of season And in your eyes, I saw the missing pieces I know you’ve found your way home A thousand angels dance around you I am incomplete here without you But I knew I loved you… Love forever, Mom, Elann & your son Austin
