A PRODUCT OF THE CAMPBELL RIVER COURIER-ISLANDER AND COMOX VALLEY ECHO

Adding an Airpark ‘lifer’ to my list In the vernacular of birders a “lifer” is a bird seen for the first time in the birder’s lifetime. For example, the famous Citrine Mike Yip Wagtail that visited Courtenay from Nov. 14, 2012 to Feb. or March 2013 was a lifer for hundreds of birders from all over Canada as well as the United States. Quite often birders keep a list of their lifers, and that is called their life list. However, there are many variations to keeping lists, and there is no limit to the variety of lists that may be created. Many birders keep a year list for all the birds they see in the current year or even for a particular month. Location lists are also very popular, and they can be very specific like a yard list or more expansive like a Vancouver Island list or a British Columbia list. On the creative side, a birder I know has a bathroom list for all the birds he sees out the bathroom window. Other possibilities could be a work list for all the birds seen at work or a lunch list for all the birds seen while on a lunch break. I don’t keep any lists, but I can remember most of the birds I have seen in various locations like the Courtenay Airpark, and it is always fun to discover a new Airpark lifer. On Jan. 24 I had the pleasure sharing some of my bird photos and stories with Liz Girard’s Access

Surprise, surprise halibut season is here! As with any government agency, sometimes hoped for decisions from DFO that affect some form of opportunity seem to take forever in being taken. Thus I was a little surprised last Friday afternoon to receive an e-mail advising that the department had considered the Sport Fishing Advisory Board’s (SFAB) recommendations for the 2014 recreational halibut fishery, developed just the weekend before, approved them and that in consequence the halibut fishery would be opening the very next day Saturday, Feb. 1; stand by for an official fisheries notice. And so it proved to be. FN #0076 was released before close of business that day and by the time you, dear reader, will have seen this the recreational halibut season will have been open for several days. Of course prior to a dozen years ago there would have been nothing remarkable about our fishery starting Feb. 1. However, since the implementation of the halibut allocation policy with its fixed cap on recreational catch and the knowledge that the recreational fishery can handily exceed that poundage ceiling under the customary rules in times of lower abundance, amongst other things the start and end dates for the halibut season have been in flux, eroding the stability of opportunity that is one of the fundamentals of good recreational fishery management. It was only two weeks previously that the International Pacific Halibut Commission, the overarching management body for these fish, had reached agreement on the allowable harvest for 2014 in the different management areas under its jurisdiction, with Canada (IPHC

Thus the newly increased maximum size to come. In summary, the suite of regulations, includ- limits won’t come into effect for almost two months and anglers should be careful not to ing the new annual limit of six halibut and keep fish longer than the 83/126 cm limits in recording of halibut on ones license, bag and possession limits of one and two fish respect- the interim if the opportunity arises. The SFAB also reaffirmed its unanimous ively with differing maximum size limits on opposition to the experimental program whereeach, were judged a success under the cirby recreational fishing interests, not necessarily cumstances and the SFAB advised DFO they the anglers themselves, can lease halibut quota should be continued in 2014. at the going market rate from commercial While it was acknowledged there is conquota holders in order to circumvent the usual siderable disappointment over the maximum size restriction, there was broad support to have recreational halibut regulations. Although there was a modest increase in the as long a season as possible and so within the use of this fishery option for the rich in 2013, poundage cap resulting from the government allocation policy the only way to have any hope from almost zero to slightly more than almost of achieving this is to maintain maximum size zero, after three years of operation overall it limits.

imagine the Conservative government would be well advised to scrap this program and remove cause for debate about a two-tier recreational fishery before the next federal election. It may be that the commercial quota holders think this an appropriate management model for the recreational fishery but I don’t know one angler who does and there’s a lot more of them who vote! With the recreational halibut season quickly under way already I have been unable to implement what I hoped to start making a tradition of, going out on opening day to try and catch one, weather and schedule permitting. Not so long ago in Campbell River that would have seemed like a fantasy fishing from home, but the recent steady influx of smaller halibut, and some not so small, into the inner south coast has made that idea a possibility. Indeed, I pulled it off last year on March 15 - hard to say who was more surprised, the halibut or me! Given the continuing overall lower abundance of halibut coast wide quite why encountering halibut in the 10-20 lb. range has become a not unusual feature of the north Strait of Georgia recreational fishery is a puzzling if welcome question. Although there is a small amount of directed fishing effort for halibut in this area, usually resulting in larger fish, the by-catch as it were of halibut by those fishing for salmon has steadily increased in the past decade. Just one more example to show that the fisheries resource and the environment it lives in is always changing, sometimes for the better! Good luck to one and all with halibut in 2014, the season is under way!

Grade 4/5 class at EDM raising funds for KidStart The Grade 4/5 class at École Des Deux Mondes (EDM) has been supporting a local child to participate in KidStart for more than a year. KidStart is a volunteer-based mentoring program offered by The John Howard Society of North Island (JHSNI). This award-winning program connects vulnerable children and youth ages 6-18 with positive adult role models in Campbell River and the Comox Valley. EDM’s Grade 4/5 class is a KidStart Bronze Champion. The students raise funds throughout the year to continue their sponsorship. In December, the students held a Santa’s Workshop fundraiser with part of the proceeds going to KidStart. They sold used toys, books, and other household items for $2 apiece. “Learning the importance of giving to others is a valuable lesson,” said Adria Gleeson, Grade 4/5 Teacher at EDM.

Mme Gleeson went on to say that a former EDM teacher is now a volunteer mentor with KidStart. “She is an inspiration as she makes a difference in the life of a child.” KidStart is funded solely by grants, donations, and gaming funds. JHSNI is inviting other groups and individuals to take part in its KidStart Champions fundraising campaign.

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings in CR Feb. 13 “We’re very sensitive men,� notes Tom Wilson, who with longtime compatriots Stephen Fearing and Colin Linden comprises Blackie and the Rodeo Kings’ singer-songwriter-guitarist triumvirate. “And when we’re not sensitive, we’re loud.� The fabled roots-rockers are a virtual institution here in Canada, where they’ve been crafting bracing, catchy, introspective music for nearly two decades. The band’s eighth album, South (released on Jan. 14, 2014) represents a fresh creative step for Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, while embodying the qualities of rootsy musical uplift and quirky lyrical depth that have long distinguished the ensemble’s varied output. Blackie and the Rodeo Kings will be performing at the Tidemark Theatre Thursday, Feb. 13. Members priced tickets are $37.50 plus applicable fees and taxes and can be purchased at the Box Office from Tuesday – Saturday between noon and 4 p.m. Tickets can also be purchased online at www.tidemarktheatre.com. South represents both a consolidation of the qualities that have already endeared Blackie and the Rodeo Kings to fans, and a bold departure from the band’s established sound. The project first began to take shape while the group was touring the Canadian festival circuit in support of its last album Kings and Queens. On several occasions, inclement weather caused Fearing, Linden and Wilson to retreat to the shelter of the merch tent, where they would stage loose acoustic sets. These impromptu performances soon began to take on a sound and groove that was distinct from the five-piece electric sets for which Blackie was already renowned. The experience of stripping down their sound had such a rejuvenating effect on the three frontmen that they

ginal plan to make one album and then go their separate ways has given way to an enduring musical rapport that’s grown deeper — and more integral to their lives — than they could have ever imagined. “Blackie is there because we want it there, and when we don’t want it there it will be gone,� Wilson states. “Blackie enhances our lives, and gives us the kick in the ass that we need to rave on. And sometimes dinner gets burned, so it’s good to have three great cooks watching the oven.� Linden is looking forward to getting on the road and bringing South to old and new fans alike. “The prospect of playing for new people is exciting, and we want to play whenever and wherever we can,� he says, “I like the idea of being the oldest new band around. It makes me feel like the great older blues artists I knew as a kid, when they were getting rediscovered.� For more information about Blackie and the Rodeo Kings please visit: http://blackieandtherodeokings. com.

They had initially planned to record a low-key all-acoustic vinyl-only release, with one original and one cover from each singer. But when they brought the material to Linden’s Nashville studio, they found their originals to be more exciting than the covers, and before long they’d accumulated an album’s worth of new original tunes.

Titled in honor of the sessions’ Nashville location, South features Blackie’s most infectious and expressive batch of compositions to date. “The way we sound when we’re sitting around in Colin’s kitchen and in dressing rooms playing music is how we wanted these songs presented,� Wilson says. “There’s a different musical conversation that takes place

when you’re stripped to the wood and skins and strings, with the comfort and confidence of the moment when the world stops outside your kitchen window.� If Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson have learned anything in the past 17 years, it’s that Blackie and the Rodeo Kings is a journey, not a destination.

British Columbia. Other interesting Airpark birds I’ve seen and photographed include the Green Heron, Red-throated Loon, Barred Owl, Wilson’s Snipe, Ruddy Duck, Western Meadowlark and Greater White-fronted Goose. The Airpark is one of my favorite locations for bird photography for two reasons. First, there is always a variety of birds present and the occasional surprise. Second, there is often the chance of getting close-up views of a few birds. The vegetation between the

path and the river forms a natural blind from birds foraging close to the river bank. The close-up photos are always the best because they don’t require much cropping. As well, while the abundance of pedestrians may sometimes be distracting, it does have a positive side in acclimatizing the birds to the human presence.

I have visited the Airpark intermittently for over 10 years, and this was the first time I had ever seen a Long-tailed Duck in the river. Normally, Long-tailed Ducks are found in salt water, and my favorite location for them is just off the spit at Deep Bay. The most notable of my Airpark birds is the vagrant Black-tailed Gull in Nov. 2008. The Blacktailed is more commonly found around Japan and Korea, and its debut at the Airpark was a first for

February’s local experts for the monthly Healthy Living Forum

February’s Healthy Living Forum offers sessions with six local experts The next Healthy Living Experts Forum is Sunday February 9th at 10 am. The House of Now in downtown Courtenay is hosting “Healthy Living Experts Forum” a live monthly forum where the Community meets our Leading Community Health Experts. On the heels of a successful launch in December, the Experts Forum will host its third event, offering a hub of health and learning in the community. By embracing the principle that the health of society begins with the self, this monthly forum strengthens and encourages Comox Valley residents in their individual process of health and ultimately their level of societal awareness so that a greater vibrancy of community may also take place. Each monthly session features 6 area Experts in fields related to Individual, family, community or societal health. This month’s Experts are: Terri Perrin: “Feng Shui Your Home for Better Health “ Arzeena Hamir: “Organic Gardening for Beginners” Rudy Sanchez - Marigolds Compounding: “Current Advances in H. Pylori Protocols” Christina Nienaber-Roberts: “Preparing for a Parents Passing” Arrow Gonsalves: “Awakening the Healer Within” Oliver Clarke - Mystic Valley Voices: “Harmonic Healing with Sacred Sounds and Chant”. Topics are 20 minutes in length and can be delivered as either a lecture, demonstration or participatory training. Each month a rotating rolster of experts will represent a wide variety of topics ranging from individual health to societal philosophy. They are delivering their skills from platforms representing both modern sciences and traditional wisdoms, ultimately dissolving the boundaries of “conventional and alternative practices” in pursuit of the greater whole. The lectures and trainings can be simple, complex, serious or fun and joyous, there is place for everything, creating balance and optimizing the learning experience. This is a great opportunity for the community to meet and learn from our Experts, and for our Experts to contribute their knowledge and skills to the greater community. The event is sponsored by Heart Drum Beat - Taoist Yoga & Healing Services. Catering Sponsor, Rawthentic Eatery will provide delicious and healthy snacks ... there will have a break mid way through the forum, as well as a short time to mingle after. There is a small fee to attend, $7.00 advance and $9.00 at the door, making the forum affordable, and still sustainable to purchase production related equipment and marketing materials moving forward. Space is limited, so pre-registration is encouraged. The Experts Forum is held on the second Sunday every month at The House of Now, 536 Fifth Street in downtown Courtenay.
