Top heavy BC ferries said part of the problem By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

One of the big differences between the Washingston State ferry system and that of BC’s is the weight in the bridge. North Island MLA Claire Trevena and NDP Ferries Critic, says Washington State’s ferry system is more affordable and offers more modest pay for executives. “We have 650 managers at BC Ferries with a management bill of $64 million,” said Trevena, after her recent tour of the system. “In Washington State, it is 42 managers with a bill of $5 million.” Trevena also says Washington State Ferries are treated like an extension of the highway system. “The first thing the government should do is tear up the Coastal Service Act and start again, looking at a new model for BC Ferries. We are treating it as a cruise ship system, when we really need is a simple way of getting people from A to B,” said Trevena. Trevena spent six days riding on the ferries in the Washington State system and met with 20 state policy-makers, ferry executives, union leaders and local elected officials. “I travelled by ferry and road from Victoria around Puget Sound returning via Sidney,” said Trevena. “I crossed the Strait of Juan de Fuca on the M.V. Coho, drove to Olympia and then crisscrossed Puget Sound finishing with a trip through the San Juan Islands and on to Vancouver Island. I have not included the Coho in this comparative analysis because it is a solo, private vessel,

not part of the Washington State fleet.” The total fares paid for vehicle and driver on all six legs was just $97. “Washington State’s ferry system is by no means perfect, and it is facing many of the same challenges and rising expenses that our system is facing,” said Trevena. “But there is a key difference, and that is the acceptance in Washington State that ferries are extensions of the highway system. They are even referred to as ‘mobile bridges.’” Since bringing in the Coastal Ferry Act in 2003, the Liberal government has run a critical transportation system like a corporate cruise line, said Trevena. She said the average per kilometre cost on Washington State Ferries is $2.07 for a driver and vehicle and 70 cents for a foot passenger. On B.C. Ferries the average per kilometre cost is $5.33 for a driver and vehicle and $1.49 for a foot passenger. Point Defiance, near Tacoma, to Tahlequah, on Vashon Island is a 2.5 kilometre crossing which costs $17.25 for a car and driver and $5.10 ($6.27/km and $1.85/km respectively); the Buckley Bay to Denman Island crossing in B.C. is 2.2 kilometres and costs $31.60 for a car and driver and $9.45 for a passenger ($14.23/km and $4.26/km respectively). “We need to remember how crucial our ferries are to our provincial infrastructure, and to the communities that depend on them. Everyone pays taxes and those taxes should fund our highway system, whether it is the marine highway or pavement in the north or the interior. Our communities and our economy depends on that.” sthomson@courierislander.com

40 beds says Island Health By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander

their health care needs,” said Comox Valley MLA Don McRae. “While we know that most individuals want to continue to live in their own homes as long as possible with appropriate health care support services in place, these new community care beds will provide them with the services they need when they can no longer live at home.” The 40 new community beds will also support Island Health’s focus on community-based care which is often more appropriate for most individuals who can no longer live on their own, but who do not need acute (hospital) care services. The location of the 40 new community beds in Campbell River will be determined as a part of the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. The three end-of-life beds will be located in an existing residential care facility and three complex care beds from that facility will be transferred to the successful proponent from the RFP process to ensure the net increase of community-based beds in Campbell River remains at 40. “From the very beginning of the discussion about the new hospitals, we believed that the additional community-based 40 beds for alternate levels of care were an absolute ‘must,’” said Campbell River city councillor Claire Moglove who is also the Comox Strathcona Regional Hospital District Chair. “These 40 community care beds were the reason the board was able to reach agreement on the number of acute care beds for the new Campbell River Hospital. The additional 40 beds will serve to relieve the pressure on the acute care beds, and I am so pleased to see things moving forward to ensure that these additional beds will become a reality in our community.” — with files from Island Health

Residents of Campbell River will soon have improved access to a range of new community care beds to best meet their health care needs — including end-of-life care. In early 2014 Island Health says it will issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) seeking an owner/ operator to provide 40 community-based care beds in Campbell River that will include three end-of-life beds, four to six long-stay rehabilitation beds and a mix of 31-33 complex care and licensed dementia care beds. Island Health says it remains committed to opening these 40 new community care beds prior to the opening of the new Campbell River Hospital in 2017. North Island MLA Claire Trevena said that 31 to 33 beds isn’t the 40 beds promised all along. “They are playing around with terminology,” said Trevena. “This announcement leaves so many questions. Are we getting hospice beds or not? There were 40 Alternate Level of Care beds promised, now we have three end of life beds, 31 other beds, rehab beds that are not regular beds, it is interesting how the health authority does their math,” “Our government is committed to providing individuals with residential care choices that meet

Mother’s, family’s agony, hits one year anniversary By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander A year is a long time to not know if your daughter is alive or not. It is 365 days of walking around with your heart always beating a little faster than it should, your stomach gripped by a vice of adrenalin, worry, stress, sleeplessness and grief. It is 12 months of hoping for a phone call that has, so far, not come. Shelley Fillipoff wants her daughter Emma to come home. She went missing a year ago, on Nov, 28, after she was last seen outside the Empress Hotel in downtown Victoria, disoriented, carrying her shoes in the frigid weather, incoherent, and causing concerns to onlookers, one of whom called the police. The police talked to Emma for 45 minutes and then let her carry on her way. She vanished without a trace. “It’s really up to each individual officer to determine if someone is a risk to themselves or if we have grounds for apprehension, but clearly we didn’t at that time,” said Const. Mike Russell, spokesman for Victoria police. “These were two seasoned officers who deal with this stuff a lot. Just because someone’s acting strange, or is not acting strange, doesn’t mean we can apprehend them or just call in someone to come assess them.” Emma had been staying at Sandy Merriman House, a women’s shelter in the days leading up to her disappearance. Emma was last seen there at 6 p.m. on Nov. 28. Emma’s mother arrived a few hours later, from Ontario, with the intentions

The Emma Fillipoff reward poster. of bringing her girl home. She was too late. Shelley spent two months searching. Days passed, then weeks. The search eventually extended to the far corners of Vancouver Island in places such as Tofino, Campbell River and Nanaimo. There was no sign of Emma.

Average price up 6.9% Sales activity across the Vancouver Island housing market area was relatively stable for the month of November, dipping only slightly from this time last year according to the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board. The benchmark price for a single-family home in the Campbell River area was $268,900, up 6.9 per cent over last year; in the Comox Valley the benchmark price

was $311,700, down 1.3 per cent over last year; Duncan reports a benchmark price of $279,100, dropping 1.6 per cent from last year; Nanaimo’s benchmark price was $325,600, down one per cent from last year; Parksville/Qualicum has a benchmark price of $349,200, up two per cent over last year; and Port Alberni is listed at $185,400 for a benchmark home, up 3.6 per cent.

Emma’s friend Michael spoke on the one year anniversary of her disappearance. “I saw her at the library one morning,” he said. “It wasn’t that I saw her there the first time that day as she had been there many times before. It was the

first time I did more than acknowledge her by walking up to her while putting my bag down, stood in front of her, then asked if I could get a hug. That is how it began.” Emma and Michael would be at the library first thing in the morning many times during the week. “We didn’t see each other everyday but when we did the first thing we would do was to share hugs, very long hugs before anything was spoken,” he said. “There were times when we held on to each other and didn’t speak at all. This went on for a long time and more often than not was the best part of my day no matter how rough it was out there or how bad I was feeling. During those hugs nothing else mattered and the hugs were nothing more than a very simple, kind and generous connection we both chose to share with each other. It has been a year now and I still get plenty of hugs from other very kind and generous people. But, by far, Emma’s I miss the most.” Emma Fillipoff lived and worked in Campbell River at one time, cooking at the Royal Coachman Pub. She was known to be bubbly, friendly, generous and kind. It was considered possible that Emma was returning here from Victoria when she went missing. “Emma loves animals, babies and young children,” said Shelley. “She could spend hours with her pets, just enjoying their being. When her youngest brother was born she was eight. She literally took over, wanting to love him every minute of the day.” Shelley said her daughter is the most unique person she has ever known.

CLEAR!

“To know her is to love her,” she said. “Her smile lights up the night sky and her laugh could change the world. She hoped to make the world a better place. “I know she made my little world the best place to be. Her siblings, her dad and myself continue to hope. I must rely on hope, that waking dream, that she is safe and sound somewhere.” There is a $25,000 reward for information leading to her whereabouts. Call 911 or Victoria police non-emergency 1-250-995-7654. From the family: “Emma, if you’re reading this, please just let someone know you’re safe.” sthomson@courierislander.com

Trevor Ricard gets to be Fire Chief for a day The winner of this year’s Fire Chief for a Day contest in Campbell River was Trevor Ricard. Trevor was one of the more than 300 Grade 3 students who received fire safety training when the Fire Safety House was brought to local schools. “Trevor’s name was chosen from a random draw, and he was

not aware he had won until the fire crew arrived in his class on Friday morning,” says Fire Chief Ian Baikie. It was a busy day for the student chief, who was picked up by Fire Department crew members at 10 a.m. and began the day with a ride in the fire engine. “Once back at the fire station,

Trevor gave the facility a thorough inspection before testing out some of the equipment to make sure it was up to standard,” Chief Baikie said. Trevor was treated to lunch at McDonald’s accompanied by Acting Mayor Larry Samson, Fire Chief Ian Baikie and Fire Department crew members.

Alder to re-open soon press release. Storry holds the Public Works and Transportation portfolio for city council. “It’s an exciting starting point. “We anticipate many questions, comments and conversations about the traffic calming, about the forward-looking design elements, and about the final results. Change is exciting, and this represents a positive change for downtown Campbell River.” In its press release here’s what the city says to expect from the downtown makeover. • One design goal of the St. Ann’s upgrade project is enhanced pedestrian space downtown. Alder will have new wider sidewalk spaces for people to walk, stop and talk, and for those in wheelchairs and on scooters to share the space safely. • Wider sidewalk spaces make the area more dynamic. Businesses and restaurants can use the outdoor space to bring energy and activity outside. An art gallery might show paintings, a café might add outdoor tables, a florist might display flowers. • When businesses inhabit sidewalk spaces, the lively, social street energy lasts all day and into the evening, make the area more attractive and safe for visitors, shoppers and local workers. • Alder will have wider sidewalk areas with new trees, bright new Where Quality Ingredients Make the Difference street lights and landscaping, making it inviting for people doing business downtown to stick around, rather than leaving as soon as they’re finished their work or errands.

Thin, it appears, is in. Two blocks of Alder Street (between St. Ann’s Road and 10th Avenue) are to be reopened in mid December. What was called the St. Ann’s Project has been under construction for months and if you think the street is narrower than before, you are right. In a press release Monday, the city said that the stretch of Alder “was an open thoroughfare — cars and trucks sped through until forced to stop at Beech Street. The street has been narrowed to balance the needs of vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist traffic in the area.” The city also said the narrower roads are “sized to be consistent with the widths of similar downtown, pedestrian-friendly streets across North America.” “We are committed to revitalizing the downtown. It is astonishing and amazing to see how the St. Ann’s Project has already drastically changed this central downtown area,” said Councillor Mary Storry in a city

My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She’s ninety-seven now, and we don’t know where the hell she is. Ellen DeGeneres

Our View Old designs don’t fit the future One thing to keep in mind about the slimmed down portions of Alder and St. Ann’s streets in downtown Campbell River is that the original street designs were over 50 years old. As Campbell River grows — and whether we like it or not, it will — we have to look towards a future of even greater downtown developments. What you see now may just be the tip of the iceberg. Investors are already being very serious about more development in the downtown core, especially high residential. What that means is that in the not too distant future, the downtown will look nothing like it does today. Even with the works going on now, its aura has changed. Yes, the streets are narrower. Yes, it takes getting used to. And yes there’s a method to the madness. The current design is making it pedestrian friendly, it is looking ahead to a time when foot traffic will be the predominant moving force in the downtown area. If Campbell River were to allow the downtown development that’s happening and that is going to happen to occur under the auspices of 50-yearold street designs, a concrete jungle would spring up in no time. The city has taken heavy criticism for the Alder/St. Ann’s project. In the future we believe residents and visitors alike will thank the forward thinking that went on during this process. Poll question: Do you like the new thin road designs for Alder and St. Ann’s streets downtown? Vote at www.courierislander.com

From our readers

About the ‘steel cells’ I could not believe what I was reading when I read the story about the instant shelters for the homeless. These steel boxes are a disgusting and humiliating solution to the problem. This idea simply showcases the complete failure and incompetence of our local and provincial government officials when it comes to supporting people with mental illness and addictions. The current shattered system costs society millions of dollars as people on the street are

constantly attended to by ambulance crews, police, fire trucks, and emergency room calls on a rotating basis. I could list hundreds of horror stories on the subject. It has been proven to be cheaper to take care of people properly not to even mention that offering them a chance to get back on their feet leads to better outcomes all round. I wouldn’t put my dog in one of those steel cells. That’s my opinion Deryk Houston — artist

Something is up with plans for ferries By Les Leyene There’s a strong impression the government has something dramatic in mind for some of the major ferry routes. It’s just not clear what it is yet. And it’s no clearer after Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Todd Stone’s media appearance Friday. The ministry scheduled it to talk speed limits. But it segued quickly to the ferries, an issue that is still boiling after last week’s announcement that big service reductions are coming next year. Desperate to keep fare increases under control, the government announced sailing cuts on several routes and an end to free rides for seniors. The key point about last week’s announcement is that all the cuts were on the minor and northern routes. The major routes between Vancouver Island and the mainland were left out of the picture — for the time being. B.C. Ferries has whittled $4 million out of operating costs there since 2012. But under the financial projec-

tions the company and the government are working on, an additional $5 million needs to be chopped out of the cost of those major routes by 2016. And Stone said he wants to go above and beyond that. The specific focus is on the two routes from the Nanaimo area: Departure Bay to Horseshoe Bay and Duke Point to Tsawwassen. “As major capital investment is considered for Horseshoe Bay, analysis will continue on opportunities to achieve additional savings and efficiencies,” the ministry said. The Horseshoe Bay terminal is on the schedule for a upgrade that is budgeted at more than $200 million. (Last week it was cited as a $200million factor, but on Friday Stone said it could be more than $250 million.) Addressing some confusion about whether that means one of the Nanaimo area terminals could be closed, Stone said no. “What I can say unequivocally to the people of Nanaimo and Vancouver Island is that there are no plans to close either of the terminals in Nanaimo.”

But it doesn’t sound as if the government is planning a business-asusual approach at either terminal. “I believe there are opportunities for further savings by looking at those two routes,” Stone said. No specific changes have been determined yet. But the looming quarter-billiondollar upgrade at Horseshoe Bay stands tall. Are they examining ways that mountain can be climbed? Or are they considering whether it needs to be climbed at all? It looks like the latter. The upcoming cost is “a terrific opportunity” to take a “long, hard look” at the service from both Nanaimo terminals, he said. “We’re challenging the assumptions with respect to that terminal upgrade.” The closest he got to specifics was a mention of “different configurations” or smaller vessels. It looks as if any service cuts that would ease pressure on the Horseshoe Bay terminal and reduce the need for that upgrade will take precedence. The problem is that it’s only one of dozens of major projects that are

in the planning stages. B.C. Ferries has $2.5 billion worth of capital projects on the drawing board. Independent ferry commissioner Gordon Macatee criticized that plan last year, saying it’s entirely based on doing things the same old way. A conventional ferry needs to be replaced, so it’s replaced with another conventional ferry, with no thought given to how things might change over the ship’s 40-year life. He rapped the company for not having a long-term vision or a valid forecast of long-term demand. It could be moving people to where they want to go, but it’s moving cars between terminals that are far from where people want to be. He also suggested his commission get authority over capital spending. “A clear vision of where the ferry system should be going is important so we don’t saddle our future with a fleet designed to serve the needs of the past,” he said. It looks as if that’s what Stone is thinking about. It also looks as if he’s not quite ready yet to talk about the inevitable disruption that adopting a new vision will cause. — Glacier News Seervice

Latest Storm surge ties up Buccaneers

11 straight games with a point propels the Storm to the top of North Div. By Ken Zaharia Courier-Islander Sports Editor Just a short month ago the Campbell River Storm trailed the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League North Division leading Nanaimo Buccaneers by as much as 12 points and second place Comox Valley Glacier Kings by six. Thanks to an 11 game streak that has seen Campbell River undefeated in regulation play, the Storm have vaulted past Comox and into a first place deadlock with the Buccaneers. The latest Storm success came on the weekend there they did lose 4-3 in overtime to the Saanich Braves, in Saanich Friday, but with the OT loss earning them a point. Sunday at Rod Brind’Amour Arena, standout Storm goalie Jack Surgenor earned his fifth shutout of the season, and his fourth in six games, in a 3-0 Campbell River win over the Peninsula Panthers. The game was scoreless for 57 minutes until Storm forward Braydon Horcoff netted the game winner at 17:01 and then added an insurance marker at 18:25. Brendan deVries had the third Storm goal, an emptynetter at 19:59. The win and OT loss leaves the Storm with a 16-7-4 record good for 36 points and in a North Division first place tie with Nanaimo (17-8-2). This latest incredible Storm surge is due in part to the players’ 100 per cent commitment to doing the little things it takes to win. “About a month and half ago we tied Oceanside (last place in the North with a 3-22-2 record) and had a team meeting that night,” recalled Storm head coach Lee Stone. “The players all bought into doing whatever it takes to win.

nothing short brilliant. While playing in four games so far this VIJHL campaign Ballie leads in save percentage at .940, while Surgenor is second at .928 in 16 starts. Ballie is second in goals against (2.01) and Surgenor fifth (2.22). “Griffin in a kid who never got a shot anywhere, it was simply the matter of having someone believe in him and he’s come through,” said Stone. “For ‘Surge’ (Surgenor) he’s never been a No. 1 guy and he’s showing what he can do being that go to guy, his confidence is at an all time high. Since acquiring Surge we’ve won 12 or 13 games and only Photos by Dean Benjestorf lost three times. That says it all.” Above, Storm forward Gage Colpron, centre, slices through the Peninsula Panthers defence Sunday at Rod In the Saanich game the Storm Brind’Amour Arena.

Team BC adds a ‘Tank’ CHURCH SERVICES DIRECTORY The Value of Fasting

By Ken Zaharia Courier-Islander Sports Editor With a nickname like ‘Tank’ you know Tomas Foge was made to play football. Foge packs a force in his 11 year old body, big for his size he has unnatural speed and endurance. For the past three tackle football seasons he has been an outstanding player with the Campbell River Peewee Eagles. Just how outstanding comes from the fact he has earned the Peewee Eagles MVP trophy the past two seasons. “His (Foge’s) abilities have not gone unnoticed on the Island and the province,” said Peewee Eagles head coach Kevin Meier. “Back in October, after he put a beating on Nanaimo’s Barsby Bulldogs team, both on offence running the ball at fullback and on defence making outstanding open field tackles, Photo submitted he caught the eye of Tomas Foge, right, running at fullback against the Barsby Dawgs. Bulldogs head coach Glenn Cook. Glenn just happens to be a coach for Team BC. He invited Tomas (Foge) to attend a tryout for the newly developed Grade 6 Team BC football team.” In early November Foge travelled to Burnaby to take part in a pre-selection combine with over 80 other Grade 6 hopefuls. His play got him shortlisted and was asked to go to Vancouver College to participate in the final selection camp on Nov. 22-23. THIS Foge’s hard work and attitude earned him a spot on FRIDAY Team BC as a defensive lineman. www.campbellriverstorm.com NIGHT Foge will be travelling to Seattle this Saturday to compete with Team BC at the prestigious FBU ERRY ARK National Championship against teams from all over the US (BC is the only Canadian team competing). “If they do well there, the following week he is off to Sacramento to play in the semifinal round,” at Rod Brind’Amour Arena explained Meier. th “If they should find success in Sacramento, the final round is too be held in conjunction with Army Puck Drops At 7:30pm Bowl week in San Antonio Texas at the Alamodome in early January.” Tickets at the Door from 6:15pm

There are lots of good reasons to limit our intake of food, ranging from health and financial reasons to emotional and spiritual benefits. An ancient idea that has recently gained traction is the practice of fasting. Instead of trying to limit one’s calories each and every day, some scientists are proposing the idea of AlternateDay Fasting or ADF. ADF regimens typically allow the person (or animal, lots of experiments have been done using rats and mice) to eat whatever he or she wants one day and then requires them to fast or consume a very limited number of calories the next day. More research needs to be done, but preliminary findings are promising, suggesting that ADF may reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and even cancer. Some are even suggesting we could live longer if we followed an ADF regimen. But, how might such a regimen benefit us emotionally and spiritually? Fasting and self-mortification can obviously be taken to extremes where they become unhealthy and even life-threatening. But, most of us suffer from the opposite problem: we are too self-indulgent. Delayed gratification and a sense of accomplishment is one of the byproducts of a successful fast. Eating can bring momentary pleasure but controlling one’s appetites gives a deeper sense of lasting joy. — Christopher Simon “When you fast, do not look somber as the hypocrites do, for they disfigure their faces to show others they are fasting.” Matthew 6: 16

Atom A Tyees split a pair of road games The REHN Enterprises Atom A Tyees packed their work boots and road black with orange and white trim jerseys and headed south for a couple of Vancouver Island Atom Development Hockey League games last weekend. They started off on Saturday in Port Alberni against the Bulldogs with a 2 -1 loss where they battled hard and badly outshot their opponents, but ran into a hot Bulldogs goalie who stopped just about every-

thing the Tyees could throw at him. Campbell River found themselves down 2-0 when a couple of bad decisions ended up with the puck behind goalie Marcus Shankar against the flow of play. The lone Tyee tally came when Evan Billard fought off a check at Port Alberni’s blueline and fed the puck to Jacob Thomas who scored on a high, hard wrist shot. Sunday the Tyees were in Oceanside for an Island Tier 1 division game against the Generals. The

hard fought, back and forth game ended in a 5-5 tie. Once again, Campbell River went down 2-0 early, but Nolan Wyatt stripped an Oceanside defender of the puck and fed a wide open Alex Movold who cut the lead to 2-1. Oceanside replied to make it 3-1, but the Tyees refused to give up. Wyatt Dumont found Movold skating down the right side with a beautiful cross ice pass. Movold went in two on one with Bryce

Idiens and scored with a low wrister between the goalie’s legs. Cam Stover stood his ground to keep the puck in the Generals zone and chipped it down the boards to Brian Majic who walked in and fired a shot over the goalie’s shoulder. Tyees goaltender Josh Doherty did his part by stopping a couple of odd man rushes with the Generals crashing his net to keep the game tied 3-3. The Tyees went up 4-3 when

Idiens scored into the top right corner after getting a pass from Movold and driving hard to the outside around the lone defender. After Oceanside tied the game on a power play goal, Majic scored his second beauty of the game on a two on one assisted by Billard for a 5-4 Tyeees win. The REHN Enterprises Atom A Tyees next home game is at 11:45 a.m. Saturday, against the Nanaimo A Clippers.

Strathcona Gardens Recreation Complex is the recipient of the Swim to Survive School Grant Program sponsored by the Lifesaving Society of BC. A Swim to Survive Grant is used to help provide a minimum of three in-water Swim to Survive lessons to Grade 3 children. Grant funds may be used to help defray the costs of: transporting students between the school and the pool and instructor costs. So the plan is to schedule all participating Grade 3 classes for their three free Swim to Survive lessons early in the new year. The Lifesaving Society’s Canadian Swim to Survive Standard defines the essential minimum skills required to survive an unexpected fall into deep water. The Society recognizes that there is a wide range of aquatic training well beyond this minimum. The Lifesaving Society’s Swim to Survive Program consists of focusing on a sequence of three skills: roll entry – tread water one minute – swim 50 metres. The Lifesaving Society believes that if every child could achieve the Swim to Survive Standard that the number of drowning could be reduced by half. Swim to Survive is not meant to replace swimming lessons. The Lifesaving Society strongly encourages parents to enrol their children in swimming lessons. Check out the Fall 2013/Winter 2014 Recreation Guide for a directory of the various swimming and lifesaving programs available in your community. The Lifesaving Society is Canada’s lifeguarding expert and works to prevent drowning and water-related injury though its training programs, WaterSmart public education, drowning research, aquatic safety management and lifesaving sport. Annually, over one million Canadians participate in the Society’s swimming, lifesaving, lifeguarding and leadership training programs. The Society sets the standard for aquatic safety in Canada and certifies Canada’s National Lifeguards. They are an independent, charitable organization which has been educating Canadians since awarding the first Bronze Medallion award in 1896.

Mount Washington delays opening Mount Washington Alpine Resort has delayed its scheduled opening day of Friday, Dec 6. While there is snow on the ground and temperatures are currently below freezing, more snow is needed to open up the mountain. “A ridge of high pressure dominated our weather for the better part of November,” explains Resort spokesperson Brent Curtain. “We need to see a return to those classic Pacific systems that cycle through our region at this time of year.” Precipitation wasn’t an issue in the last four years. Monumental snowfall allowed the mountain to open earlier than expected every season from 2009 to 2012. “We were very fortunate to open early over the last few consecutive seasons. Looking at the last 30 years of operation however, a second

or third week of December opening is a more common occurrence for us,” Curtain adds. As far as predicting a new opening date, Mount Washington wants to open the mountain as soon as possible. “We will open the mountain as soon as we have enough snow to operate after Dec. Photo by Mount Washington Alpine Resort 6th,” says Don Sharpe, Director of Business Operations and Marketing. “If we get the snow, There’s snow in the hills, but more is needed to open the mountain. mountain crews will be sent out immediately to prepare for opening day.” The good news for skiers and boarders is LIMITED EDITION BOOK that prodigious amounts of snow can fall on Mount Washington in a very short period of time. And once it does, the mountain will be ready to race out of the gates for opening day. For the latest snow conditions and to check out the webcams, visit mountwashington.ca.

This senior’s village a labour of love By Sian Thomson Campbell River Courier-Islander She has lived all over Canada, including the Arctic, but after many years of moving from one remote location to another, she has planted her roots in Campbell River, and built a village which symbolizes everything she loves; family, community, music, Christmas and snow. Jane Pettifer, 72, has been collecting pieces for her village for about seven years, and the 10’x6’ display, with two levels above that, has taken over a large portion of her living room. With precise attention to detail, the animated and musical village boasts a marching band, two outdoor skating rinks, a gondola, a ski hill, a train station, a dance hall where people are twirling to Christmas music, horse and buggy, an open, glowing fire, children singing, a moving tire swing, a candy store, a barber shop, Santa and his reindeer on the roof of the toy shop and a child making snow angels. “It takes about two full days to set up,” said Pettifer, who says even repairmen who have come over on business have stopped and asked to take a photo of the display, and her children squabble over who gets it in her Will. “I keep telling myself each year that I have enough pieces but each year I find new things and I just cannot help myself,” said Pettifer. “So the base keeps expanding, and we joke that soon we won’t be able to have furniture in the living room over Christmas.” As she admires the beauty and spirit of the village, Pettifer recalls she has lived in many places not so beautiful or bustling. The mother of four, grandmother of 10 and great grandmother to one, with one on the way, spent her first decade in South Hampton, England and came out to Canada on the SS America with her mother, father and brother in 1950. “I spent the entire trip curled up in a ball in our cabin, terribly sea sick,” said Pettifer. “We arrived in New York City, spent the day there and then went to Grand Central Station and boarded the train to Toronto.” After spending five years in Toronto, her father was laid off so the family moved to Port Coquitlam, B.C.,

Precautionary measures older travellers must consider Whether retired or simply an empty nester, older men and women often love their increased opportunities to travel and see the world. Without kids to cater to or college tuition to pay, men and women approaching retirement age, or those who have already passed it by, find themselves with more free time to take to the highways and skyways and experience other cultures. While travelling is a great way to make the most of one’s golden years, travelling as an older adult isn’t the same as it might have been back when you were a carefree teenager or 20-something backpacking through Europe. Before setting out to see the world, older travellers should consider a host of factors. Documentation Older travellers tend to travel abroad more than they do domestically, so be sure all documentation, including passports for each traveller, is up-to-date. If you’re travelling for an especially long period of time, be sure your passport is valid beyond the length of the trip. In addition to passports and any visas you might need, make sure your driver’s licences and auto insurance policies are current and will remain so through the trip. This is important for travellers who plan on renting a car during their vacation. Don’t forget to bring your driver’s licence and proof of auto insurance (as well as contact

The CR Singers shown rehearsing for the Dec. 7 Christmas concert.

CR Singers at Tidemark Saturday The Campbell River Singers look to Ireland and Wales for their Celtic inspired Christmas Concert. It promises to be a wonderful evening of Christmas song and dance with their special guests, Tara School of Irish Dancing under the direction of Margaret Mullen. This year, Conductor John Montgomery and Assistant Conductor Shelley Roberts, along with the 77-voice choir, will be bringing joyful Christmas music to the Tidemark Theatre on Saturday

evening Dec. 7 starting at 7:30. Along with the rhythmic Celtic themed carols, the Singers will be performing familiar Christmas medleys, some gospel and blues numbers, some traditional seasonal songs with a bit of a twist, and for you sports fans out there…something unexpected. The Campbell River Singers Concert, a Campbell River tradition, is their way of bringing the warmth and joy of the Christmas Season to everyone. This year they

are also honouring the memory of long-time choir members Ellen Nutting, and Shelley Rooney who are now singing with the angels. The choir will be performing one of Ellen’s favourite pieces, Gentle Voice, and dedicating it to her memory. For an evening that is sure to warm your heart and to usher in the Christmas season, bring family and friends Saturday. Tickets available at the Tidemark 250-287-PINK.

The Campbell River Friends of Music have announced that Kevin Ngo is the recipient of the Keen Halleran Memorial Scholarship for 2013. The Keen Halleran Scholarship Fund was first established May 2003, as the Halleran Scholarship by Frances Keen (1955-2006) in recognition of her high school band/choir and piano teachers, Noreen and Mickey Halleran of Quesnel, BC. Unfortunately, Fran passed away before she could finish her project. The project was completed and Frances’ name Kevin Ngo was added to the scholarship in recognition of her work as an elementary choir and band teacher, as a community choir director and advocate of music education and music in the community. Ngo is studying in a Masters program in Piano Performance at Texas Tech University. A former Carihi graduate who studied under Francis Keen, Kay Wilson and then Cindy Taylor, Kevin completed his ARCT Performers Diploma in 2006. Since then he has pursued his musical studies and performed as

a soloist and collaborative pianist accompanying local school choirs and instrumentalists in addition to organizing and performing in local benefit concerts.
