Chinook salmon smolts spill out of a hose and into a seapen at the head of Phillips Arm. Approximately 48,000 salmon were released Monday in an effort to create a self-sustaining run of chinook in the Phillips River and lake, located on the mainland coast.

smolts. “This is not for the feint of heart,” announces the driver after finally reaching the lakeside at the head of Phillips Arm. The final road to their home waters is the most precarious in the long journey for these yearold salmon. They represent the

future of Phillips Lake chinook runs and no one rests easy until they are safely back in the water. “Come back big!” says Rupert Gale, president of the Gillard Pass Fisheries Association, raising a toast with a cup of sparkling apple juice. It’s late Monday afternoon and

Dollars returned to the city by the Strathcona Regional District for a tax levy error helped, injecting $305,500 into the budget as did new construction ($339,392), and a 2009 budget surplus ($138,768). The biggest impact to the budget though was the $3.6

million cuts which included cancelled projects and reduced operating expenses. The city’s operating department and the parks and recreation department had more than $260,000 taken out of the two budgets combined. The city manager’s travel budget was reduced and the

summer student positions chopped down from six to four. Council also cut out expensive studies and strategies such as a $22,000 communications survey. Laura Ciarniello, the city’s interim corporate services manager, says the reductions will not have a big impact on the community.

Her platform is based around a smart economy, strong communities and true democracy, believing that environmental accountability starts with individuals. She calls for a new Canadian agriculture policy emphasizing organic, local food production and will work to end poverty through a variety of measures including those to ensure a guaranteed living income for all citizens, tax reform, investment in a national housing program and working with the provinces and

Draper is a proponent of life, liberty and property. He believes Parliament requires independents because they are not bound by party policies, and that every local vote of every citizen in Canada who votes for a party candidate other

Draper says the Independent Party does not have a platform, only policies based on principals. “In general, as independents, we retain the right to lean whichever way we need to come up with the right decision, the right belief, the right answer at the right time without being encumbered by a laminated instruction sheet from party headquarters,” Draper says.

EDITOR: Alistair Taylor editor@campbellrivermirror.com

Our View

Hope and a prayer emergency plan So, are we any further ahead? City Manager Andy Laidlaw told council that after discussions with the RCMP, the BC Ambulance service and the fire department, the Island Highway upgrade poses no We say: We’re threat to the passage of emergency vehicles. Any statement to the faced with contrary is full of misinformation conflicting and rumours, Laidlaw told council. There’s enough space for information emergency vehicles to get around cars pulled over to the side of the road in the newlyupgraded section of the old Island Highway, Laidlaw said. Furthermore, if a fire truck or ambulance

needs to, it can mount the curb to navigate around other vehicles. Yet, firefighters union president Reid Wharton insists that the width of the road does pose a problem. He also questions the wisdom of driving $600,000 fire trucks up on the curb – although, if these vehicles can’t handle riding up onto the curb, you have to wonder about how sturdy they are. As big an issue this will be to the unlucky homeowner who has to watch a fire truck crawl towards his house as the flames eat away at the walls, there is another issue here and that is the one of communication between City Hall and the fire department, particularly its individual firefighters.

Wharton implies there was no consultation with the firefighters who ride the trucks which would seem to be a reasonable inquiry to make, especially since Wharton has been outspoken on this issue. Wharton is obviously at odds with, presumably, his department who reassured the city manager the roadway is no problem. So, we’re left with who to believe. You could be like letter writer Walter Hall (see below) and get out and measure the road but presumably city staff have done that. The proof will be in the first emergency perfect storm of a fire, heavy traffic and a location in the middle of the upgraded stretch of road. Hopefully, that will be as rare as everyone hopes it will be.

Good point: Highway I thought I would like to comment on this project and its good and bad points. I took the time to do a little checking on traffic road width , etc. and found that, at the present time, this stretch of road does not comply with federal or provincial dimension guidelines for maximum width vehicular traffic. Maximum width vehicles of eight feet, six inches are allowed on all roads in North America except inner New York and New Jersey where eight feet is maximum allowable. Municipalities are allowed to use their own roadway and street widths guidelines within the boundaries but must use posted signage indicating the restrictions of over width vehicles from reduced width of road allowance provided. In all cases, the two-foot rule should be applied. In the case of this new stretch of road , the maximum width of indicated vehicular traffic boundaries is 11 feet and is 10 feet, seven inches at the pump house going north. A bicycle path adjacent to the right curb measures 68 inches and is fairly constant on both sides for north and south bound traffic. Provincial guidelines for maximum width vehicular traffic is: and I quote: “One lane must have a width of 12 feet to accommodate maximum width traffic in each direction. On main high volume highways and secondary roads, etc., bicycle lanes are allowed where traffic is 60 kilometres Continued on A9

Decommissioning dams is not such an odd proposal. In fact, it’s an action being taken in many jurisdictions, particularly in the States where old, obsolete dams have even spawned organizations pursuing they’re removal. The idea is to restore natural runs of river in areas where the dams no longer serve any purpose. They’re usually on smaller rivers that have a large recreational potential. The John Hart Dam decommissioning that provincial energy minister Rich Coleman momentarily contemplated is a different kettle of fish. the dam would have to lower a whole whack of water in the valley stretching all the way back up to Myra Falls.

Regardless of the hydroelectric implications and the safety of the dam structure, hundreds of thousands of dollars would have to be spent on reforestation in the previous water levels. What a project that would have been. Lately, we’ve been getting a taste of what it would be like if water levels on the ButtleCampbell lake and river system would look like and it ain’t pretty. Buttle and Upper Campbell lakes currently link but historically they had stretches of the Campbell River between them. When the Ellis Expedition ventured into the region 101 years ago to investigate the creation of a provincial park, they spent a lot of time poling upstream. The Strathcona recreation expedition last year paddled most of the way up into But-

tle Lake because of the huge reservoir created by the dams. In recent years, drought conditions have required the lake level to be lowered significantly. The bare, glaring-yellow rock shoreline has stood out in stark contrast to the forested slopes and dark rocks of the mountains that make up the Buttle Lake valley. Wharves at Strathcona Park Lodge get stranded and the shoreline gleams so brightly, you almost have to squint your eyes to reduce the glare of sunny days. If the John Hart Dam and presumably the Strathcona Dam were to be removed, an extensive replanting program would be needed and that shore would take decades to look natural. That’s if you were to take the dams out. If you didn’t, there would

still be a cost to maintain the dams both structurally and functionally as you’d have to open the floodgates at low water times to ensure there’s enough water in the Campbell River for salmon runs. It’s always nice to return an area to its natural state – lots of work has been done in that regard in the Campbell River estuary – but it would be hugely problematic to do it in the Buttle-Campbell system. Plus the results probably wouldn’t be seen in my lifetime. Coleman obviously didn’t have all the information he should have when he made that pronouncement but he was soon put straight on the issue. He just say a saving of $1.35 billion and said there’s some good political optics.

station. This area is a very dangerous situation for entering and exiting this business, especially on Saturdays. This should have been addressed. A simple cure for this could be very easily taken care of with about eight hours of road marking. I have written this letter to provide a few options for our City Hall to ponder so they can make this project right and not have to revisit it at a later date. Better to make it right now, make every-

body happy and show that public safety is forefront in their planning , implementation and completion of city projects. And last but not least , listen to the citizens and our first line responders. As this letter will become public knowledge for all public officials in our community, it is not necessary for me to send registered letters to all council members or the mayor.

vide access for emergency vehicles . So why did our engineering department not take this into consideration when building this section of road? At present, the large island of boulders serve no purpose and restrict the flow of traffic and prevent emergency vehicles from making a timely response in an emergency situation, especially the continuous stretch of boulders from south of the pump house and up to the pump house. Eliminating this “pile of boulders” would alleviate any dimensional shortcomings and bring this section into compliance with minimum provincial guidelines. Another area of “surprise” was the widening of the area some time ago in front of RONA’S. Everybody that I talked to at the time this was done believed we were going to see a turning lane in front of RONA’S. But true to the state of planning in our engineering department, citizen shock treatment was in store for us. An additional area of parking was marked out on sunny morning and this adjacent to the large parking area at Ken Forde boat ramp and the lift

in an emergency. However the city is remiss in that they have not posted this restriction or they have not modified boundaries to accept maximum width vehicles . In the case of making this stretch of road comply , a reduction of one foot, two inches in bike lane path will give a vehicular road width of 12 feet except for the section adjacent and 140 feet south of pump house where a reduction of the width of the “boulder pile in the middle of the road on, two 2 inches would be necessary to bring this into compliance. In order to retain the present width of bike path (recommended) the island widths would have to be reduced. Now we come to the “whys.” All coastal cities, towns and villages in British Columbia and across the line are folding into their road and street planning, ways of meeting emergency evacuation and egress from danger areas in case of coastal emergencies such as tsunamis, earthquakes, etc. The criteria being of establishing evacuation routes and minimizing or removing obstructions and widening roadways to accommodate overload of vehicles and pro-

Any reduction in traffic lane widths from the 12 foot width within municipalities must have a no post guardrail separating bike path and vehicular traffic.” The “boulder piles” in the centre bordered by a cement curb, measure 13 feet in width, more than adequate for parking or turning. The indicated roadway for vehicular traffic north of this new stretch of road complies in every way to provincial standards for maximum width traffic – 12-foot indicated allowance for vehicular traffic with a minimum of three feet shoulder .

Drive Smart 2X14 BC Increasing Speed While Being Passed Passing zones always presented interesting situations for traffic enforcement. There were many times when I would find one driver in the right lane traveling at or nearSAFE the speed TYEE CHEV DRIVE limit and another passing by in the left at a speed significantly in excess of the speed limit. On stopping the speeder I would often hear about how they had been forced to travel behind the slower vehicle, which had been going well under the limit, for great distances and how that slow driver sped up on reaching the passing lane. My difficulty was that the passing lanes were good opportunities to travel at the speed limit compared to the highway leading up to them. Experience had taught me that if I applied my speed “allowance” for drivers over the limit to those under the limit and watched the advisory speed signs, speeders were a dime a dozen and truly slow drivers were like hen’s teeth. “Isn’t there a law about increasing your speed while being passed?” I was often asked. Yes there is. Except where passing on the right is allowed, a driver being passed must not increase their speed until they are completely passed by the overtaking vehicle. Passing zones permit passing on the right because there are at least two adjacent lanes for the same direction of travel. So, the previously slow driver is allowed to speed up to the limit in the passing zone. If you have to exceed the limit in order to pass them, you take your chances with law enforcement.

Good judgement ensures safe response I debated whether I was going to waste my time responding to the headlines of Wednesday’s paper, then I decided it had to be done. Unbeknownst to the general public, code three responses have many restrictions that come into play everyday, everywhere. For instance, if you come across a school bus unloading chil-

dren, you MUST shut down the siren and lights and wait like everyone else for the kids to clear the road. You MUST come to a complete stop at all stop signs including fourway stops. You are NOT allowed to travel more than 10 km/h over the posted limit, so if the fire truck is making it to Maryland Road from town in 10 minutes or better, then

they are breaking the law. T h e s e e x a m p l e s, along with the fact that not everyone heeds the way for emergency responders properly, only illustrates that there are many reasons a code three response can be delayed. Good judgement, on the part of the responders and the public, will ensure a response that is as speedy as is

What is a Green Cone? t A food waste digester that looks like a home composter but is much more. t Takes all types of food waste - meat, dairy, bones, vegetables - basically everything from the kitchen table. t No need to turn it, or empty it more than once every few years. t Using solar heat in combination with macro bacterial activity it breaks down waste aerobically into nutrient rich water that is absorbed into the soil, and a very small amount of residue. t An enclosed system means it doesn't attract vermin or any other animals. t It's easy to install, the hardest thing is digging a shallow (2') hole. All it needs is decent drainage and sunlight. t Accommodates all of the food waste of an average family of four or five. The “Green Cones” will go on sale Monday, April 18 for $120.00 including taxes. Residents can call 250-334-6000 or 1-800-331-6007 to place their order by no later than Friday, May 13, 2011. Green Cones MUST be pre-ordered and pre-paid. Call with credit card payment or pay in person with cash or cheque at 600 Comox Road, Courtenay. For more information visit www.cswm.ca.

Timberline. Fiftieth Parallel is the duo of Philip Marchand and Jonathan Hinds who describe themselves as a “percussive finger-style acoustic group.” And the third act is a new band, Rise With The Falling. There will also be 50/50 draws, the final of the Timberline students’ “Minute To Win It” event, and a silent auction. The silent auction has some great sports memorabilia including signed rookie cards and bobbleheads from local NHL hero Rod Brind’Amour, some classic Bobby Orr photos and books, and a mint copy of the 1956 Sports Illustrated magazine featuring the late Van Egan on the cover. Egan lived in Campbell River and the photo of him angling was the first-ever cover photo for SI depicting sports fishing. Ironically, the magazine was published on April 30, the same day as Justin’s fundraiser. The fundraiser takes

place in the Timberline cafeteria (park in the lower parking lot) from 4-7 p.m. There will be food and drinks for sale, and admission is by donation. Due to Justin’s condition, his mobility is extremely limited because the tumour is centered around his motor functions. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, for him to authorize cheques. He does share a joint bank account with his mother and cheques can be made out in the name of Diane Zaschke. For more information on the fundraiser, call Paul Rudan at 250923-2608.

Campbell River Living Experiencing hard work and a sense of community KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A

pair of teens feel like the luckiest girls in the world because they spent their spring break in a developing country. Brianna Savery, a Grade 11 student from Timberline and Josie Simpson, who is in Grade 10 at Carihi, are just two of a group of 33 International Co-op high school students, chaperones and local volunteers who spent nearly two and a half weeks in Nepal. The group provided valuable labour to the Nepalese who, along with humanitarian groups, are building an irrigation system for the small, poor community of Lahachowk. The students were tasked with carrying rocks,

sand and cement uphill, conveyor-belt style, to help build the canal, which will benefit two communities and increase food production for local farmers by 100 per cent. While in Nepal, the students finished 65 metres of the canal, which is contained by high rock and cement walls. The irrigation system, which will help contain water during Nepal’s monsoon season and direct it towards the farmers’ fields, is expected to take four years to complete. “The work was not as bad as I thought it would be, you got a good upper arm workout from it, though,” says Simpson, who was amazed by the Nepalese’s work ethic. “Some of the ladies carried flat rocks in their bas-

kets which were strapped to their forehead. They’re very community-minded and everyone works together.” While in Lahachowk, the students all stayed in the villager’s homes. Both girls say they were treated with so much hospitality. The only hard part was when it was time to take a shower. There are no bathrooms and no running water in Lahachowk homes. Shower’s are taken

off the side of the road and shared by the entire village. “They have taps off the road, where everyone bathes,” says Simpson. “We showered with our clothes on because you’re right out in the open.” Each home has an outhouse with a toilet that does not flush and no sink to wash your hands. Electricity was also no guarantee as certain regions of Nepal have

power at different times. “It wasn’t a big deal,” says Simpson. “We had headlamps and flashlights when we were outside and when we were inside, the families had candles.” The highlight of the trip for both girls was interacting with and living among the villagers. A trip to the orphanage in nearby Pokhara was one experience no one will forget. “All the kids were so nice and they danced for us,” says Savery. “One little boy took me into his school room and read me his science text book and I read him Sesame Street and the Jungle Book. The kids also taught us their hand clapping games.” The group also paid a visit to the school in Lahachowk. Simpson says the classrooms were bare aside from a chalkboard and long wooden tables lined up beside each other. The teens brought along a map of Canada and took turns teaching the Nepalese children about different regions of the country. They also played word games with their young

students and spent time playing volleyball and soccer, two very popular sports with the locals. During the students’ time off work, they also did a three-day trek through the Annapurna mountains, where little villages are scattered throughout. Though it was a very steep climb, Simpson says the views were beautiful. Along the way, the students spent the night in tea houses, similar to little motels. Both Simpson and Savery say they will never forget the people they met in Nepal and are still in contact with some of the friends they made there. “I definitely noticed that if you’re someone’s guest there, they want to treat you like it’s the best place on earth,” says Simpson. “I just feel really lucky, it was amazing, and I really want to go back.” Savery enjoyed experiencing another culture. “I’m really glad I got the opportunity to go. Once I was there, I loved it and I didn’t want to go home,” she says. “I think I’m going to go back.”

Journey: 48,000 salmon represent the future Continued from Page 1

Located on Great Central Lake, in the mountainous heart of Vancouver Island, Omega Pacific is a privately-run hatchery operated by Schmitt and Bruce Kenny.

Chinook trial T h e y ’ re p a s s i o n ate advocates for wild salmon and they’re working in co-operation with other organizations to save three chinook runs: Two on the West Coast on the Nahmint and Sarita rivers; and the Phillips River, on the the mainland coast, about 50 kilometres northwest of Campbell River. “We’ve lost huge numbers of our wild salmon,” she says, during a break from checking the oxygen levels in the tanks carrying the smolts. “I know the solutions are out there…and this project will basically prove it.” For the past few years Omega has been trying to overcome one of the biggest problems facing hatchery-reared chinook salmon: Survival. While millions of these young chinook are released annually into the sea along B.C.’s South Coast, less than one per cent return to their home rivers as mature adults. Predation, disease, ocean conditions, over-fishing and loss of habitat are among the many reasons they don’t survive. But Schmitt and Kenny believe they’ve identified the main reason for their demise: Most hatchery chinook are released too early. When this happens, explains Schmitt, their immune system is not fully developed and they are more suscep-

The truck carrying the smolts disembarks from the MV Aurora Explorer at the head of Phillips Arm.

tible to disease. At the Omega hatchery, chinook are raised in very cold water and fed slowly to promote slower growth. This method attempts to mimic their natural growth cycle which p rov i d e s t h e f i s h with a fully-developed immune system and enables them to enter the ocean better equipped to fight off disease, feed and avoid being eaten. It’s also a method employed at chinook hatcheries in Washington State, notes Schmitt. She says it’s also important to raise chinooks from eggs and sperm gathered from brood stock on the home rivers. Each is genetically different and she laughs while retelling how her Omega cohorts refer to the Hollywood-like appearances of the chinook smolts from the three river systems. The salmon from the Nahmint are like Queen Latifah, bigger and more robust: the Sarita’s are like Drew

Barrymore, smaller but still curvaceous; and the Phillip’s are like Paris Hilton, pretty and petite. “All are beautiful, but they have their differences,” says Schmitt.

The road home Approximately 12,000 chinook smolts are transferred to each of the four tanks on Madill’s flatbed. Fully loaded, he heads east on Highway 4, crosses “The Hump” to the Inland Island Highway and proceeds north on the Inland Highway past Campbell River to Menzies Bay, a trip roughly 190 kilometres long.

Ome g a is the MV Aurora Explorer and her crew from Marine Link Tours. The flatbed is backed onto the 135-foot landing craft and then Captain Phillipe Menetrier pulls away from the dock to begin a 29-nautical-mile trip north through Seymour Narrows, to Nodales Channel and then up to the head of Phillips Arm. Also on board is Marine Link owner Guy Adams who has established a nice niche market of moving cargo to remote places along the coast and hosting paying guests in the vessel’s state cabins. Adams is also an avid fisherman who fully supports the work of

the Gillard Pass Fisheries Association, and he’s donated the use of the vessel for this special voyage. “You know, our family’s pretty good at killing fish, so I figure this is a way to give back,” he laughs. But his support is no joke and Gale is grateful for the ride. Gale also points out the chinook trial would have never happened without the support of the association’s members, Omega and field staff from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). “This is a challenge… and they’re willing to let us try this,” he says of DFO’s support. The federal ministry also paid researchers to check over the salmon to ensure they’re free of pathogens. The Aurora Explorer motors through calm waters on a gorgeous day as the sunshine illuminates the snowy peaks of the Coastal Mountains. Reaching the head of Phillips Arm, the vessel swings into Fanny Bay where two empty seapens await. Half the fish will be deposited here where they will remain for a week in order to imprint themselves. This ensures the survivors return to their home river to spawn. The fish are being split up, explains Gale, as part of the strategy to see which salmon best survive. The other 24,000 fish

are taken to the nearby site of an old logging camp. Madill drives off the landing ramp onto the beach and proceeds five kilometres up the logging road to Phillips Lake. And now it gets tricky. The road into the lake is more suited to a passenger-sized 4x4, not an 18-wheeler. This is where experience counts as Madill expertly manoeuvres the flatbed over the twisting and narrow dirt road to the magnificent, mountain-ringed lakeside. Gale and Schmitt are clearly relieved their valuable cargo has safely arrived. A large flexible hose is attached to the tank and the other end is deposited into the lake netpens where thousands and thousands of small, dark-coloured chinook smolts come spilling out into the fresh, cold water. “They’re beautiful fish!” says DFO officer Barry Peters of Campbell River, who’s been supporting the project. Better still, there are very few floaters – dead fish – and the salmon seem to be enjoying their new home. After a few minutes, they begin jumping and snapping up the huge mosquitoes. “That’s a very good s i g n , ” s ay s To d d Scharff, a volunteer with the Gillard Pass association, who’s staying in the nearby cabin

for a week to monitor and feed the smolts, as well as to keep them protected from a marauding river otter. And now the waiting game begins. It will be five years before these chinook return to the Phillips River, one of a handful of coastal rivers that support all five species of Pacific salmon. For the next four years, more salmon smolts will be released the same way. The goal of the trial is to create a self-sustaining run of Phillips chinook which will benefit the entire ecosystem as well as the guests who visit the nearby sports fishing lodges. These lodges have also provided financial support to the project and fish farming companies – Mainstream Canada, Marine Harvest Canada, Creative Salmon and Grieg Seafood – have also supported the salmon rearing efforts at Omega. With the smolts swimming and jumping in the water, Schmitt breaks out the sparkling apple juice and pours cups for all who raise a toast to this monumental effort. The day is a success, but true success will only be known five years from now. That makes Schmitt nervous and she wonders if she’s done enough. “Are we releasing enough fish? That makes my worry – is it enough?” she asks as the sun begins to dip below the mountain peak. paulr@campbellrivermirror.com

GO BETWEEN CONSULTING

The BC Ministry of Attorney General is currently revising the Family Relations Act (FRA) and is passing new legislation very soon. We are concerned that this Ministry is under estimating the importance of specifically addressing Parental Alienation in the new FRA. Parental Alienation must be identified as a specific factor in divorce, along with specific remedies, in the new FRA. It also needs to be defined as a form of domestic violence and child abuse, which experts say it is. Parental Alienation frequently happens during a divorce or separation. It occurs when one parent actively works to align a child by unjustified or exaggerated denigration of the other parent, also making it difficult for those grandparents to stay connected to their grandchildren.

Sybil Andrews Heritage Society donates to cottage restoration The Sybil Andrews Heritage Society has presented a $5,000 cheque to the City of Campbell River in support of the work underway to restore the artist’s cottage. “This is a community donation to the Sybil Andrews cottage restoration,” says a thrilled Fern Seaboyer, President of the Sybil Andrew s He r i t a g e Society. “We’ve been

fundraising for five years, and we’ve sold 600 calendars featuring the work of local artists and almost 300 flour sacking towels similar to the ones Sybil Andrews used. Through these fundraising sales and personal cash donations, we’re able to contribute this $5,000 on behalf of numerous community supporters.” Cottage restora-

tion work is currently underway. The building is already settled onto a new foundation, with perimeter draina g e i m p rovements installed, and it sports a new roof. A wheelchair ramp and access door are in the works as well as some other minor repairs. Restoration work is scheduled to be completed by the end of April. Sybil Andrews Day

As well as the donation from the Sybil A n d rew s H e r i t a g e Society, the project has received financial support from the Coast Sustainability Land Trust, Heritage BC, the Heritage Legacy Fund and the City of Campbell River through the Strategic Parks Plan and the Parks Parcel Tax. “The Sybil Andrews Heritage Society would like to thank everyone who has contributed in any way to our fundraising efforts,” Seaboyer sums up. “The restored cottage will create a heritage focal point in south Campbell River that acknowledges the important role Sybil Andrews played in art history and in the development of Campbell River,” says Ross Milnthorp, the City’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture. “The heritage site will offer a range of possibilities for the entire community and is expected to be a tremendous resource for cultural tourism and the creative economy in Campbell River.”

June Larson

April 7, 1926~April 11, 2011

In Loving Memory of Duane Doherty April 24, 2010

Mom passed away suddenly just four days after celebrating her 85th birthday with family and friends. June was born and raised in Vancouver. She waitressed at the Hotel Vancouver as a teenager, putting herself through school to obtain her teaching degree. Her first job as a teacher was in Lund, BC where she met and married our dad, Elmer Larson (deceased 1980). They spent six years living up the coast at Rock Bay and Stuart Island. After having us 3 girls they returned to Lund to raise their family. Mom went to work for the Powell River school board as a teachers aide at age 40. After her retirement she moved to Campbell River to be closer to family. Mom made some good friends here and spent several years taking cruises and bus trips with the "Happy Wanderers". She also enjoyed the wonderful women from her "TOPS" club who continued to keep in touch after she could no longer attend. Mom instilled in us a sense of honesty and fair play, her motto was "do unto others kind and true, as you would have them do unto you". There will be no service at her request, but a family gathering will be held to plant a tree in her memory at the Lund property. Her girls will always remember their happy childhood.

It’s the little things that remind me you’re not here: old comments on my facebook page; those stupid chain-joke emails; filing taxes; the beach after a good storm; rainbows. Silly moments, forever etched in my memory: a road-hockey stick and cardboard with yards of duct tape; summertime BBQ’s and blender drinks (how many blenders did we fry?); bets on the Christmas tree decorating; a chipped cup (I still have it - I think I’ll keep it forever); laughing over everything and nothing at all. Memories of things relived year after year: Christmas coffees and Nanaimo trips; time at the lake; seafood nights; last-minute phone calls for a birthday gift; countdowns until your next visit home; long talks into the wee hours about anything and everything. The things you did for me without my having to ask: dinners made ‘just because’; stalking airline websites for a last-minute ticket and the treacherous drive you made so I didn’t have to; advice I didn’t want to hear but listened to anyway; the love and support you always gave and never asked for in return. I wish I’d returned the favour, one last time. I miss you so much it hurts. Love you always. xo

In Loving Memory of My Brother Duane Gerald Doherty May 18, 1974-April 24, 2010 My Brother..... My Friend.....I can’t believe that I have found the strength to carry on without you in my life for a whole year! It has not been easy, and I don’t believe it will get any easier, I will always miss you. If only you had known how very important you were to me, and my family. You were always there for me... as my big brother and my best friend, to assure me I was doing the right thing.... or to tell me not to be stupid.... give me advice.....and always, no matter what, wherever you were, you were there to listen. Every year I looked forward to you coming home, sitting down with you and having a drink and laughing with you. No other road trips came anywhere close to the ones I had... with you...my big brother. No one can replace the connection we had, I don’t think there will ever be a day that I don’t think of you, you are always in my thoughts, and dreams. I miss you every single day. Love you Bro.

Judo medals

Four members of the Campbell River Judo Club fought in the Evergreen Sate Open in Washington State last month. This was a large tour nament with judo fighters coming from all over Western Canada and the western United States to participate. All members represented the club well and fought hard in very comparative divisions. Owen Wellard, age seven, the youngest member won a silver medal in the boys 31 kg division. In his final match to decide gold and silver, Owen lost a back-and-forth battle in which both fighters had the upper hand at different times. Jamiliya Wellard ended up medaling in two divisions; silver in the under 38 kg girls ages 9/10 and a bronze in the girls ages 11/12. This is very impressive

The medalists pose for a photo at the club.

because Jamilya had just turned nine years old a few weeks prior to the tournament. In the adult divisions, Glen Morris and Jason Wellard both medaled. Glen fought in the senior menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under 73 kg and ended up with winning the bronze. Jason won gold in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under 81kg division and had to have a rematch with an opponent he had already between earlier that day to settle the division.
