Volunteers mobilize to rescue dolphins Four of the marine mammals stranded on the mudflats at Oyster Bay PAUL RUDAN CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Volunteers slogged through the thick mudflats of Oyster Bay Tuesday morning in a valiant effort to save four stranded Pacific white-sided dolphins. “It’s alright, you’re going to be okay,” said volunteer Colleen McClure as she gently stroked one of the dolphins and poured water over its body to keep the skin moist. Another Oyster Bay neighbour, Bob Stoltz was up before 7 a.m., watching the dolphins feeding on fish in the bay...and then the tide went out. Four of the dolphins became stuck on the mudflat, just north of Oyster Bay Shoreline Park. Stoltz trod out onto the flats and then contacted other neighbours who arrived with buckets and a large tarp. By around 9 a.m., more volunteers had arrived to help and various agencies were contacted to assist in the rescue. The Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre was contacted and they advised to not move the dolphins and to keep them wet

with sea water. However, with the tide still going out and high tide many hours away, the volunteers made the decision to move the dolphins back out to sea, supporting them with a large tarpaulin. By 9:15 a.m., one of the dolphins was successfully moved back to the Strait of Georgia and efforts continued to save the other three. An hour later, all four dolphins were free. According to the Vancouver Aquarium, “Pacific white-sided dolphins are found throughout the temperate waters of the North Pacific Ocean from Japan to North America, and from the coasts of Alaska down to Baja, Mexico...In Canada, Pacific white-sided dolphins are listed as ‘Not at Risk,’ due to their large population numbers and wide distribution, but in many parts of their range across the North Pacific Ocean, these dolphins are taken both directly and indirectly in fisheries.” For future reference in case any similar type of incident occurs again, the Marine Mammal Incident Reporting Hotline number is 1-800-465-4336.

Grant pursues mayor’s chair Wants city to change direction KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Coun. Roy Grant is seeking the mayor’s chair in this year’s election and has former and current councillors’ support behind him. Grant announced his bid for mayor of Campbell River at Spirit Square on Friday in front of a group of nearly 20 supporters that included former

councillors Morgan Ostler, Laird Ruehlen and freeman Bill Matthews, as well as current councillor Andy Adams. After nine years as a councillor, Grant believes he can best effect change at City Hall if he is elected as the city’s new mayor on Nov. 19. “I just wasn’t up to the task of running for council again,” said Grant. “I think

the city is not going in the direction it should be and I’m not the type of person to sit around and complain about things, I do something about it. “I felt if ever there was a time to run for mayor, this would be the time.” Grant said he feels the city could benefit from change, but harbours no ill feelings toward current Mayor Charlie Cornfield, who has yet to announce whether he will run again. “I can only say what I think I’m able to do and what Charlie hasn’t been able to do but one thing I have to say about Charlie is that he always had the city of Campbell River’s best interests close to his heart, there’s no doubt about that,” said Grant. “I give him full credit for the work he’s done as a councillor and as mayor but as far as I’m concerned it’s time for a change in leadership.” Grant, the longest current serving coun-

cillor, also spent six years on city council in Alberta in the 1980s. While on Campbell River council he gained respect and appreciation from many of his fellow councillors. Matthews, who worked on council for 23 years, three of them with Grant, believes he is right for the job. “Roy has always been dedicated to this city and is a positivethinking guy,” said Matthews, who is also working as Grant’s campaign manager. “He always has the city in the front of his mind, not himself, but the city.” Matthews said his friend, who he has known for 25 years, is a reasonable person that can get consensus, something he thinks is lacking on the current council. “He has a common sense approach and is very level-headed. I think he can do a good job,” he said. Adams, too, thinks Grant is right for the job.

“In the last five and a half years of working with Roy, there has not been a harder working member of council,” said Adams. “The two things about Roy is that he’s positive and optimistic. “You don’t hear Roy being negative and saying what can’t be done, he’s always looking at what can be done. “Should I choose to run for council again, I would love to work with Roy as mayor. We have some challenging times ahead and we need some positivity rather than the negative.” Adams said he also admires how Grant has the ability to respect people with opposing views and bring them together to move forward. He also noted the sacrifices Grant has made and the time he has spent away from his job as a realtor in order to serve the city. Grant said he was overwhelmed by the amount of support from Adams, Mat-

thews, Ruehlen and Ostler and believes he won’t disappoint. “We have faced many challenges in our city in the past years but with proper policy-making and management, we can all work together to reduce those challenges and get on with the business of leading the city into the future,” said Grant. “I am approachable, personable, optimistic, results-oriented and ready to be your mayor.

I have shown the leadership and team building qualities required of a city leader and I am ready to use those skills as your mayor.” Grant also encouraged others to run for council or mayor, noting there will now be an extra spot on council available with him not running. “Instead of sitting back and complaining about things, put your name forward as a candidate,” he said.

Ramp debris to be removed

The city celebrated the completion of Highway 19A last Saturday with a ceremony that included a blessing by the Wei Wai Kum First Nation and a traditional First Nations dance. For the second time in four days, the city also demonstrated that a fire truck can pass a city truck on the narrow highway. Clockwise from right: Bill Henderson poses with two welcome poles he helped design and create Thursday before they were officially unveiled; Henderson blesses the welcome poles during the celebration ceremony; Mayor Charlie Cornfield helps unveil the poles, a man and a woman looking out towards Cape Mudge.

Ken Forde Boat Ramp is slated to open to boaters on Canada Day after city plans to remove and dump gravel clogging up the ramp were approved late last week. The free, public boat ramp has been covered in debris since last winter and impossible to use. Big Rock Boat Ramp is also littered with logs and gravel but boaters can access it, using the left side of the ramp. Both are expected to be cleaned up this week after the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) approved the use of the gravel for foreshore re-nourishment. “It’s actually precious material that – if it wasn’t getting hung up at the boat ramps – would continue up the foreshore and nourish the beaches that are starved,” said Ross Milnthorp, the city’s manager of parks, recreation and culture. “In some ways, and boaters would not agree with me on this, the material clogging the boat ramps is a blessing because it’s exactly the material we need to re-nourish the foreshore.” The gravel will be distributed along the beach front just north of Rotary Park, and across from Best Western, where winter storms damaged the beach and parts of the Sea Walk. “The long-term solution for foreshore protection is for us to work with mother nature and use the material that clogs the ramps to nourish starved beaches at key locations,” said Milnthorp. “Nourishing the beach is a very effective and cost efficient way to protect the shoreline. “It looks natural, keeps land from washing into the sea, restores habitat and protects infrastructure.” Beach front at the Tyee Spit in the winter of 2007-08 and at Ellis Park, at the bottom of Rockland Road, in 2009 has already benefited from gravel that washed up at Ken Forde Boat Continued on A4

Ramp: Site found for relocated gravel, debris Continued from A3

Ramp. Both beaches were destroyed but have been completely restored. When selecting this year’s site, the city also took into account forage fish, which make up about

80 per cent of a salmon’s diet, said Neil Borecky, applications analyst for the city. “After we chose the site north of Rotary, we tested the area for forage fish eggs to make sure we’re not putting

material on top of the forage fish eggs,” said Milnthorp. The city hopes to soften the shore in the Rotary Park beach area by creating a gradual slope and removing hard shoreline mate-

rial like rip rap (large rocks) to slow erosion. A recent study conducted by the city, a foreshore assessment, determined the eroded section of beach would be the best location for the gravel and the easi-

est area to get approval for. “The Rotary Beach design works have already been done and this is just an extension of an existing project,” said Milnthorp. “So it was much quicker

for the Department of Fisheries to approve.” The study identified beach front near Twilingate and Adams Park as areas most in need of re-nourishment but because both sites need to be re-

constructed, approval from DFO would have taken longer and held up cleanup at the boat ramps. DFO regulations stipulate the city cannot stockpile gravel while waiting to re-distribute the materials.

HST’s effect on BC’s economic competitiveness, 51 per cent combined stated that they “Agree” or “Strongly Ag ree” that “T he HST will have a positive effect on British Columbia’s economic competitiveness,” 24 per cent were “Unsure” and 16 per cent combined either “Strongly Disagreed” or “Disagreed”. Written survey comments, on the impact that the HST has had on member businesses, noted positive impacts that improved the cost of doing business such as: more streamlined bookkeeping, cost savings on the purchase of production equipment, less paperwork for busy business owners allowing for greater productivity, and cost savings on business supplies. Alternatively, members have also exper i e n c e d n e g at ive effects from the HST including: strain on short term cash flow, customer concer ns about higher costs, an increase in costs for things that previously

were PST exempt and now have the HST, and hardship over adjusting to a new form of taxation. The Campbell River Chamber notes value in the recent announcement to cut the HST from 12-10 per cent in that it makes the tax more palatable to consumers, families and some businesses which in tur n may help the tax succeed in the upcoming referendum. “Taking the pulse of our members was important and their general feedback is that the HST is good for business and we will continue to support the HST and encourage others to learn about the attributes of the tax and show their support too,” says Chamber President Gary Thulin. He adds, “What’s important during the HST referendum is for each person to undertake your own independent research first, make up your mind, and then vote, our economic competitiveness is at stake.”

Chamber members okay with HST Campbell River businesses are in favour of the HST, according to a Campbell River Chamber of Commerce survey. The chamber took the pulse of its membership on the perceived impacts of HST and the impacts that a return to the PST system would have on local business during a members-only online survey. “It is apparent to us from our member’s response to the survey” Chamber Executive Director, Colleen Evans says in a press release, “that certain industry sectors have experienced more negative impacts from the HST than others but that from the responses we received from our members, they feel strongly that the HST will have a positive effect on our province and most British Columbia businesses.” The responses from 83 members pointed to overall support for the HST from the business perspective. When asked to rate, on a sliding scale, the statement: “The HST will have a positive effect on most British Columbia businesses,” 67 per cent of the respondents combined selected “Agree” or “Strongly Agree” while only 17 per cent combined selected “Strongly Disagree” or “Disagree.” On the topic of the

1. You’ve chosen to keep WATER ARTICLE your grass green and healthy Luisa Richardson

during summer. You: a) Water at any time and however long you feel like, b) Water only before 7 a.m. or after 7 p.m. on your allotted day. 2. You believe that following the sprinkling restrictions means: a) Turning your sprinkler on at 7 p.m. every second day and leaving it on until 7 am. b) Watering once or twice a week for 20 – 30 minutes within allotted times. 3. You live on a hill and it’s your day to water the lawn. You: a) Run your sprinkler until water flows onto the street and down into the storm drain. b) Run your sprinkler for 10 minutes on, 10 minutes off, for several cycles to let the water soak in. 4. You water your lawn and water very quickly flows off the lawn and onto the street. You: a) Keep watering, hoping that the grass can take a quick drink as the water flows past, kind of like a hydroponic operation. b) Realize your soil is compacted so you aerate, maybe add some extra top soil and check for thatch build-up. Mainly A answers: You are “that neighbour” and you are using more water than average. Mainly B answers: Good work, you are using water efficiently. Average water use triples in summer time, and most of this increase is due to inefficient lawn and garden watering.

The invention was born on Popove’s wedding day while struggling with her strapless gown. She realized all women worry about their clothing unintentionally slipping, shifting or falling down. Now a mom to a 14-month-old son, she is chasing after her toddler while building her business. Popove went on Dragons’ Den to get some help expanding her business. She said she had help from business friends Cathy Voth and Keith Davison in preparing for the show and the big stage in Toronto. “Not only did they offer their expertise and knowledge but we were able to practice our pitch with them and let me tell you, they did a great job pretending to be a Dragon,” said Popove.

Three First Nations sign deal with Marine Harvest

Marine Harvest and three Central Island First Nations have concluded three years of discussions intending to guide the operations of salmon aquaculture in their territories. On June 24, the We Wai Kai, We Wai Kum and K’omoks First Nations celebrated the signing of a capacitybuilding agreement with Marine Harvest Canada. The agreement requires environmentally sustainable practices, provides economic and investment opportunities for the First Nations.

“We are very pleased to start a positive relationship between Marine Harvest Canada and our people,” says Chief Ralph Dick of the Wei Wai Kai Nation. “It’s important that we have input into how companies operate within our territory since they are already here,” states Chief Robert Pollard of the Wei Wai Kum Nation, “and the best way to have our say is to work collaboratively. This agreement provides that opportunity.” The signing increases the total number of

agreements between Marine Harvest and coastal First Nations to ten. “Marine Harvest recognizes the importance of working with local First Nation bands,” commented Vincent E re n s t , M a n a g i n g Director at Marine Harvest Canada. “We look forward to working with our partners to ensure that our business promotes sustainability for our oceans, our economy and local communities.” Collectively, the three Nations and Marine Harvest Canada repre-

LIF - Life Income Fund/PRIF – Prescribed Retirement Income Fund Similar to RRIFs in that you are required to withdraw a minimum amount each year but withdrawals are also ‘capped’ by pension legislation. You decide what amount to withdraw within the allowed range. GIF – Guaranteed Income Fund or Guaranteed Investment Fund Also known as a segregated fund policy, a GIF is a form of insurance that combines the growth of investment mutual funds with the features of an insurance policy to provide you with the security of a guaranteed income for life.

LIB – Lifetime Income Bene¿t A GIF that provides a predictable, guaranteed income for life and is available to individuals at least 50 and under 91. SWP – Systematic Withdrawal Fund A mutual fund feature that allows you to withdraw income at speci¿c times – usually monthly or quarterly – while your invested capital continues to grow. Works like dollar cost averaging in reverse -- you redeem more units when prices are down and less when they are higher. There’s more, such as CPP, QPP, OAS, and all this alphabet soup stuff can seem a little deep at times.

Bring the whole family! The Museum at Campbell River presents Heritage Puppet Theatre shows beginning June 23, and summer students Delaney Sullivan, Kyle Rosenke and Melissa Kubinec are excited about bringing Campbell River history to life through the puppets and their stories. Some of the characters you will have the pleasure of meeting are the forgetful Fred Nunns, the moody Captain Vancouver and the

ferocious Ripple Rock. Cost is $2 per person with children under three years of age free. For group of 13 or more, pay $25. Perfor mances are at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of August. Shows run for 20 minutes and are followed by an entertaining craft class. At each showing, children receive a puppet passport, which is stamped every time they attend. Once they have collected five stamps, the

next puppet show is free. While at the museum, also check out Active History After noons (A.H.A’s) – offering an interactive and engaging view of our region’s history. Let us walk you through the evolution of the logging industry, a day in the life of a pioneer, the development of the fishing industry, and more. AHA programs are from 1-4 p.m.; most Mondays and Fridays from June 27 to the end of August. The Museum offers

HST at 10% or GST + PST at 12%? If British Columbians vote ‘NO‛ to going back to PST + GST in the referendum, the HST reduction to 10% will be the law. The province‛s official notification to the Government of Canada guarantees the drop in HST by way of a signed federal government order.

EDITOR: Alistair Taylor editor@campbellrivermirror.com

Our View

Residents ready to and willing to help Campbell Riverites showed how big their hearts are once again Tuesday morning after four Pacific whitesided dolphins became trapped in a mud pool. We say: Four Volunteers put aside their other oblidolphins stranded gations and trekked through the mud and water to do whatever they could at Oyster Bay to ensure the dolphins were comfortable until help arrived. rescued Oyster River area residents, and others who came down, should be commended for what they did – whether it be pouring buckets of water over

the stranded dolphins or stroking them to try and keep them calm. When volunteers heard help for the stranded dolphins would be hours away they made a tough, but snap decision. With the tide going out and the dolphins’ lives hanging in the balance, the Good Samaritans decided to take matters into their own hands and transport the dolphins themselves. By 10:15 a.m., the large group of do-gooders had managed to successfully move all of the porpoises back out to sea using a large tarp.

Thanks to the quick thinking of area residents and those who were notified of the situation through the Campbell River Mirror’s Facebook page and came down to offer assistance, all four dolphins were returned to the water safely, and seemingly, without injury. Had volunteers waited for too long, the story may not have had as happy an ending. Congratulations to all who attended the scene. It’s inspiring and comforting to know there are so many people in this city who are willing to led a hand when someone, or something, is in need. – Campbell River Mirror

Good point: The HST Re: Tax my car, not my income (B.C. Views, June 15). Tom Fletcher can nitpick all he wants about the proper identification of the government’s July 2010 tax increase on private vehicle sales. As an alternative, maybe his beloved government should have considered rescinding the dealer tax on used vehicles. Most people buy used cars and other used products because they can’t afford to buy new. In reality, this is just another tax that hits those who can least afford it. After slogging through all the statistics, graphs, and pie-charts concerning the HST, one thing struck me: The province raises 14 per cent of its money from the HST, 14 per cent from personal income taxes, and only four per cent from corporate income taxes. The province spends 42 per cent of its revenues on health and 27 per cent on education. Corporations benefit greatly from an educated and healthy workforce. It reduces their training costs, and unlike companies in the U.S. they don’t have to shell out huge amounts for heath insurance. That in itself provides a big cost advantage for B.C. companies. So why aren’t these companies paying their fair share? Over the years our government has increasingly catered to the values of Wall Street and Madison Avenue. You know – those buzzing little stick people on TV. Now, if only it could rediscover Main Street. Mike Divine New Westminster

British Columbia’s Asia-Pacific project marches on

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

Here are a few items that didn’t make the daily news cycle as B.C. residents prepared for the long-awaited summer of 2011 to begin. ■ After her meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa last week, Premier Christy Clark delivered a luncheon speech to the Economic Club of Toronto. Her big talking point for the speech was the rise of the Asia-Pacific region, “the fastest-growing middle class in the history of humanity.” The theme ran through her pitch to the federal government for a share of Ottawa’s largest-ever shipbuilding contract, and her recent meeting with western premiers in Yellowknife. No word on how Clark’s enthusiasm for the west as Canada’s economic

engine of the future went over with the Bay Street crowd. ■ After the speech, Clark took the wheel of a Chevy Volt electric car for a spin around Toronto with a GM Canada vice-president riding shotgun. She pronounced the car “fantastic technology.” This is pertinent as B.C. residents get ready to pay the latest increase in B.C.’s carbon tax. Effective July 1, the tax on a litre of gasoline rises from 4.45 cents to 5.56, with comparable increases to other carbon fuels. Clark has inherited Gordon Campbell’s aggressive climate changeclean energy agenda, and it’s not yet clear what will become of it. She has committed to the last consumer carbon tax increase in 2012

(up to 6.67 cents on a litre of gas), but the fate of the big hydroelectric push remains uncertain. Those plug-in electric cars need to start selling before Campbell’s gamble of developing increasingly costly electricity starts to pay off. One potential competitor is natural gas-powered vehicles, taking advantage of huge new shale gas discoveries in B.C. and elsewhere. ■ Campbell’s pending appointment as Canada’s high commissioner in the United Kingdom should warm the hearts of conspiracy theorists. The story broke when Clark was in Ottawa, and when reporters asked for her take on the appointment, her first comment was that he’ll be a big help in negotiating a free trade agreement

with the European Union. Students of Bill Vander Zalm will know that he sees the harmonized sales tax and EU trade as an effort to impose world government and set B.C.’s sales tax rate in Europe. Early in his goofy anti-HST campaign, Vander Zalm claimed this was plan B for world government after the conspirators failed to impose a global carbon tax. If the HST is a conspiracy, it’s a mighty big one. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon never tires of reminding people that 140 countries already have valueadded taxes, including China and those other Asia-Pacific business tigers that are dominating the world economy.


OPINION

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 29, 2011 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

HEROES – I want to give my endless thanks to the amazing staff of Sutton’s Funeral Home, particularly Danny Munroe. There couldn’t have been a better person to help me through what I know will be the most difficult time in my life. I was truly unprepared to be making decisions regarding my late husband at 26 years of age, and if not for your unlimited kindness, understanding, and gentle nature I don’t know what I would have done. I can’t thank you enough for easing me through such an unpleasant situation while lessening the stress at the same time. Your concern has been truly touching and your generosity even more so. Danny, you’ve made a huge impression on me, I am forever indebted to you, and I will never forget how helpful you’ve been. I am so, so thankful to have met such a wonderful human being. – Forever grateful, Lindsay Malbon HERO – Jake Lawrence was and always will be my hero. It was May 14 when Jake was in Grande Prairie, AB, visiting his sister, a group of friends gathered at a large

local motocross track for a day of fun. That came to an abrupt end when my son, Clay misjudged a jump and fell (feet first) 25-30’ straight down. The boys jumped in the truck racing to Clay’s side, where Jake took off running and beat the truck there. Jake immediately took charge, telling Clay everything would be okay. Visually sighting three different bones protruding from Clay’s body, again Jake was the one pouring water over Clay’s wrist and forearm trying to clean it, as they waited for the ambulance (the longest 45 minutes they’ve ever experienced). Jake was the one to call 911 and got my phone numbers (home and cell here in B.C.) to make that dreaded call to his buddy’s mom. Jake called me several time with updates on Clay, throughout the evening. That is the kind of man Jake Lawrence was, always making that difference in his short 20 years. We were the fortunate family, that Clay did not have any fatal injuries. He did have a fractured femur, both tibia, two broken ankles, dislocated ankle a broken thumb and wrist. I thank God, my son’s injuries will

stopped. Coffee flowed, kids bounced, faces were painted and clowns entertained. Late into the night you kept teams going with our “fun laps” and kept our teams safe by patrolling the grounds. Your enthusiasm and passion made working with all of you a pleasure. Thank you to the C.R. Volunteer Center for their continued support. See you next year at Relay! – Erin Wilson, Relay for Life 2011, Cordinator

Always loved never forgotten. – Leanne Lacusta ZERO – The administration at Timberline Secondary School who in their infinite wisdom cut the concert band program to before school time. You are depriving many students (mainly my child who takes the bus to school) from participating. I would love to send my child to a private teacher however Campbell River doesn’t have a private trumpet teacher.

Ann and Vance Brown, Brandy Edwards, Bill & Cusondra McSeveney, Brenda Staub, Nicki Hansom, Stephanie Toner and Mom, Kim Windle, Cindy Taylor, Amanda Doherty, Adam, and many more that offered to help. Without your assistance our beach day wouldn’t have been so successful. So thank you very much for the dedication! In the spirit of giving, all food left over was donated to the Campbell River & District Food Bank, so that many more families would be able to enjoy the treat that we did today! I am one very proud mom and volunteer, and also very happy I chose this great place to live. I am proud to be a Campbell Riverite. – Brandi Stovman

HEROES – Ocean Grove Elementary would like to express their extreme gratitude to The Real Canadian Superstore, Thrifty Foods, Quality Foods and Save on Foods for helping immensely with our Annual Beach Day, that was held on June 24. Without your help, we wouldn’t have been able to feed so many people. It truly was an amazing day, the children had a lot of fun, and we know they all returned to the school full of good food and happy thoughts from our day! Everyone said the burgers were delicious, and the hot dogs were super tasty! A nice treat nearing the end was those super cold freezies that were a delectable treat to

HEROES – Cyriel and his staff at Quality Foods for their help and support for our Ripple Rock Gem & Mineral Club Show that was held at the Timberline on June 1112. Cyriel went above and beyond to help us with this event. – Thanks, the Ripple Rock Gem & Mineral Club.

On behalf of the Board of Education and staff of School District 72, I am pleased to share this report with the community, highlighting the work that is being done within the school district in relation to our 20092012 Strategic Plan. School District 72’s Strategic Plan is available for download from the district website at www.sd72.bc.ca – Tom Longridge, Superintendent of Schools for School District 72

SUCCESS FOR ALL LEARNERS We will investigate the most effective and sustainable grade con¿guration. In September 2012, the grade con¿guration in district schools will change to K-5 elementary schools, grade 6-8 middle schools and grade 9-12 secondary schools. The decision was made after ¿ve months of consultations with the community and district staff.

Ensuring that Campbell River Grads Have Many Doors Open to Them Faced with a continual decline at the secondary schools and overcrowding at several elementary schools through 2021 (Timberline Secondary is forecast to lose 100 students this fall, alone), the school district set out in the fall of 2010 to investigate the most effective and sustainable grade con¿gurations.

In 2007, Carihi Secondary had a population of 777 students and Timberline, 816. By 2021, Carihi is projected to be down to approximately 531 and Timberline, 566. Both schools have a capacity of between 825 and 850 students. While many parents dream of smaller schools, an enrolment decrease to this extent at the secondary level could actually hurt students more than help. At secondary school, students are preparing for the world beyond. Whether they are considering post-secondary education or entering the workforce, courses are elective-based and much more careeroriented. With signi¿cantly less students, schools are challenged to provide specialty courses; courses, which students from larger centres and schools have access to and which post-secondary programs and some entry-level employers are demanding.

The grade 6 to 8 middle school model met the two primary goals of the con¿guration review – it creates enough student population for viable secondary schools and creates enough room to meet the needs of a growing population in the elementary schools. While shufÀing one grade at each level of school, may not seem like that signi¿cant of a change, there is a lot that needs to happen to ensure that students and their families have as smooth a transition as possible and that they continue to receive the quality education that they’ve come to expect. A school con¿guration committee, comprised of kindergarten to grade 12 administrators, has begun to tackle implementation planning. They are looking at issues already identi¿ed through the public process and over the next year, the committee will be engaging all district stakeholders through conversations with parents, students and teachers. As part of the implementation process, the school district will also be working with North Island College to create more distinction between Timberline Secondary School and the college, while maintaining the learning opportunities that the shared campus affords.

and education experts say that kindergarten’s play-based experiences teach children important social, communication and problem-solving skills and encourage creativity and independence.

ENHANCED COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS We will continue to build upon our positive relationships with the early years and adult literacy communities identi¿ed in our expanded mandate.

Creating a “Made in Campbell River”” Approach to Full-Day Kindergarten This past fall, the Ministry of Education began phasing in universal full-day kindergarten for ¿ve-yearolds, a signi¿cant investment in early childhood learning. And there’s talk, by the Ministry, of expanding the program to include four-year-olds, and possibly three-year-olds, in future years. Full-day kindergarten was available for up to half of B.C.’s eligible students in September. By September 2011, full-day kindergarten will be available across the province. In the Campbell River School District, our Board of Education opted to wait until September 2011 to offer fullday kindergarten so that it would be available to all kindergarten students, as opposed to only some. When full-day kindergarten starts next September in Campbell River, it will have been inÀuenced and shaped by our community – our teachers, early childhood educators, daycare

providers, and Aboriginal leaders. The Board’s decision to wait until ce next September has given us a chance to learn from other districts as they implement their own programs. The added time has also allowed the district to collaborate with our early learning community and develop a vision of what full-day kindergarten will look like in our community. A steering committee, comprised of district staff, principals, kindergarten and primary teachers, daycare providers, Success by 6, a school trustee, early childhood educators, and an Aboriginal Education Advisory Council member, is working to shape how full-day kindergarten is rolled out in the Campbell River School District and how to help our youngest students and their families transition into school at an earlier age. Some parents are concerned that the extended hours will be too tiring for their kids. Others wonder whether

hild children are being thrust into academics too early or whether schools are encroaching on a family domain. When full-day kindergarten comes into effect in September, there won’t be a half-day option, but for parents that are fearful that fullday kindergarten is going to rush academics at an earlier age, the kindergarten program has been, and will continue to be, a play-based program. Most learning in the kindergarten program occurs during play

School District 72 • Campbell River, B.C.

The kindergarten environment is carefully designed to be dynamic, with engaging engagi materials and spaces. Through such playb based a activities as ar art, drama, mu music, puppetry, and pup shadow play sha our youngest y of students stu are afford afforded countless oppor opportunities to play with materia materials, explore and disc discover for themselv themselves. While some may question the value of kindergarten, full-day learning is associated with improved reading and numeracy, smoother transitions to grade 1, and increased post-secondary graduation rates. Anticipating that parents may have additional questions regarding fullday kindergarten, the district has prepared a Q&A document which can be downloaded from www.sd72.bc.ca

Campbell River School District

Strategic Plan 2009 - 2012

AN EXPANDED AND PURPOSEFUL ENVIRONMENTAL ETHIC We will empower our students to lead the way by creating more opportunities to hear their thoughts and ideas on environmental stewardship.

Students Lead the Sustainability Charge: Inspiring Along the Way conference where presenters from across the community co-presented sustainability workshops.

What happens in our classrooms every day shapes future generations. So what better place to raise environmental awareness, encourage sustainable behaviours, and empower environmental stewards of tomorrow? All schools now have student run Green Teams which, under the direction of a teacher sponsor, are empowered to introduce environmental programs within their school. From championing lights out campaigns to conducting garbage audits, Green Teams have been busy! Composting is now regularly occurring across the district and enhanced recycling is available at all Campbell

River sites. By estimates, we have reduced our waste in volume by 40 percent. At Southgate Middle School, the Green Team started hot lunch container recycling – rewarding fellow students who dropped off their plastic food containers to be washed and recycled with lollipops. Timberline’s Green Team hosted the ¿rst ever environmental stewardship

SUCCESS FOR ALL LEARNERS We will strive to ensure that learning is relevant, engaging and exciting – instilling a value of life-long learning.

Education that Keeps Pace With Today and is Flexible Enough for an Unknown Tomorrow It goes without saying that the world we live in today is a very different one than that of last century. So the challenge before educators is how to ignite a passion of learning in a new generation of students – students being raised in a time of unprecedented interconnectivity, information and communication. How do we engage students through lessons that are relevant to their world today and the world of tomorrow? This is where the concept of 21st century learning comes in. When many people hear the phrase 21st century learning, they think of technology. Laptops and iPads in classrooms, WiFi, smartphones, and the Internet as a means to research and share class projects. Yet while technology is very signi¿cant, it is one piece of a much larger puzzle.

Six Campbell River schools also entered the BC Green Games, submitting projects in Science World’s annual environmental contest. A grade 1/2 class at École Willow Point won $1,500 for their video highlighting the school’s environmental efforts, speci¿cally the ‘Chicken Cycle’. The Chicken Cycle uses the compost gathered from their school to feed chickens and ducks on a hobby farm. While there’s so many exciting environmental initiatives throughout the district, perhaps the largest and most signi¿cant is championed by a former Timberline student and Carihi graduate, Kira DeSorcy. Kira is a young horticulture technician and coowner of Vibrant Organics, an organic farming business in Campbell River.

Wanting to help reconnect students with where their food comes from and inspire environmental stewardship, Kira approached Timberline with the idea of an edible courtyard, a school garden that could function as an outdoor classroom that would also provide the school with a source of local organic produce. The foundation and initial plantings of the garden are complete, with all materials used to-date having been kindly donated by community businesses, and the garden is an idea that’s already taking root elsewhere. Carihi Secondary has already approached Kira to help with a greenhouse project in the fall and UK celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and his television show Food Revolution. Oliver’s staff have asked for a feature article on the project, which may be published on the Food Revolution website!

21st century learning is considering a new vision for our education system – one that recognizes and responds to the uniqueness of each student; is Àexible in where, when or how learning takes place; sees parents effectively engaged in their child’s learning; and has teachers being facilitators of learning, supported by technology. In SD72, there are many examples of how students are being given new ways and opportunities to learn – tailoring the education to their needs. One special example is the Life Skills Transition House under construction at Timberline Secondary. Through the generosity of Seymour Paci¿c Developments and the Mailman family, a small scale house is being built which will provide special needs students and young adults an opportunity to learn and practice everyday tasks that so many of us probably take for granted – such as making a bed, washing dishes, and cutting vegetables – necessary skills to live independently. In a grade three classroom at Ocean Grove Elementary, math lessons became dynamic with the use of a SmartBoard. A projector displays the computer’s video output onto the board, which then acts as a large touch screen. For example, an exercise on odd and even numbers had students come up one at a time, in front of the class, to ‘move’ with their ¿ngers the odd numbered trains on the ‘worksheet’. This same class conducted Internet research on Aboriginal cultures, created PowerPoint

presentations of their ¿ndings, and uploaded the ¿nished presentations to Google Docs for sharing with classmates and parents at home. It also encompasses a student with select mutism using an iPod Touch with an application to talk for her in class; a Southgate teacher using digital cameras to teach autistic students how to make eye contact; and secondary students being able to get a head start on earning level 1 trade credentials while completing high school. These are just a few of the countless and creative ways that our teachers are working to engage and tailor lessons to the needs of our students.

“A Picture of Me” (Without You) Imagine a world where no music was playing And think of a church with nobody praying Have you ever looked up at a sky with no blue? Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you Have you walked in a garden where nothing was growing? Or sat by a river where nothing was flowing If you’ve seen a red rose unkissed by the dew Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you Can you picture heaven with no angles singing? Or a quiet Sunday morning with no church bells ringing If you’ve watched as a heart of a child breaks in two Then you’ve seen a picture of me without you Good Night Sweet Mama

As a child Ursula was involved with gymnastics and acrobatics, she was an active child, and was known to have daredevil side to her. Before, during and after the war Ursula worked hard for her family, helping to support the family financially. Ursula met Helmut her future husband at HombergHof, which at the time was her place of work Helmut was smitten and was always struggling to get her attention. Ursula finally acknowledged Helmut when he serenaded her under her bedroom window singing “Maryundle”. Ursula and Helmut were married in Herford, on December 8th,1950.

Ursula’s many interests included bowling, joining leagues in Victoria, Courtenay and the senior’s league in Campbell River. Among her other hobbies and interests was a great talent for cross stitch, sewing and crochet. In the afternoons Mom loved to watch her soaps. The Young and the Restless was her favorite.

Thank You Campbell River! We would like to thank everyone who helped Mark-Anthony Roberts raise $881.25 for the Child Run that took place June 5, 2011. Especially- Coastal Credit Union, Spokes Bikes, Redden Net, Atlegay, KDC & Nawkolas who all allowed Mark-Anthony to put a donation can in their business. To the baseball fans who donated at a Saturday game and also the Campbell River Band members whose houses he went to. He also got donations hand delivered after the run which was very kind of people. He had a good time going around with his buddies; it was good to see his friends help him fundraising!! Thanks again. Mark-Anthony Roberts

Gunmen get fired up on the range Campbell River Rod and Gun Club held its annual handgun competition last weekend. The two-day event attracted 29 sharp shooters, from Victoria, Nanaimo and Alert Bay, who are part of the Island Shooting League — which holds eight matches per year. In Campbell River, competitors rotated around four or five different stations which each had their own obstacle for shooters to navigate. In the open event on Saturday first place went to Don Neratini (728 points); second to Don Sloan (655) and third to Bob Dixon (561). In the standard, Trevor Herrmann (699) was first; Oleg Matveenko (689) second and Dom Piluso (567) was third. On Sunday, Neratini was first overall once again in the open event with 890 points, while Dixon was second (709) and Barb Neratini (431) was third. In the standard, Matveenko (869) was first; Piluso (746) and Joe Strachan (743) finished third.

Ravens wrap up season on wrong side The Saratoga Ventures Junior Ravens had a rough end to their season last weekend. On Saturday the team made its last road trip of the season to Saanich to take on the Tigers. The Vic toria-based team gained some Jr. A Shamrock cuts to strengthen its bench and defeat the Ravens. With a loss on the road on Saturday the Jr. Ravens came out on fire against the Penninsula Warriors at home on Sunday. In front of a large crowd at Rod Brind’ Amour Arena, Raven Adam Donald scored the first goal of the game on a pass from Tyson Fair less than two minutes into the first. The Warriors came back with one of their own at 18:05 but only 30 seconds later the Ravens’ Hayden Smith came out with a marker to re-gain the lead for the Ravens off a pass from Eddy Lawson.

The boys in blue didn’t stop there when at 14:26 Arran Marlow got a nice pass from Lawson and put it in the meshing for the Ravens’ third. Lawson scored the Ravens’ fourth goal unassisted before Penninsula scored three quick goals to tie the game at 3-3. But Lawson got his second in a row to give the Ravens a 5-4 lead on the third place Warriors at the end of the first. T he Jr Ravens struggled to find the net for most of the second until the last minute of play when Smith scored for the Ravens. Penninsula, however, notched two of their own in the second leaving the end of the period in a 6-6 tie. The Ravens played a lot of defence in the third as they ran into some penalty trouble and played shor thanded. Penninsula still scored four unansw e r e d g o a l s i n the period, to make it a total of seven power

play goals through the game to beat the Ravens in their final game. Ravens head coach Reg Elgie noted the team has “grown a lot from last year and has developed as a team. We’re going and I feel that we will start next year at a pre-season level higher than I’ve ever had in Campbell River before.” Huge effort to all the Jr Ravens for working hard on both offense and defence and to netminder Errol Adams for standing up tall between the pipes. The Ravens would like to wish veterans Connor McLeod and Chris Vaux all the best in their future endeavors as they leave the Ravens bench after many years of minor and junior lacrosse in Campbell River, as well as a speedy recovery to netminder Logan Down and offensive player Brayden Howes who were both out this weekend due to injuries.

Reaching back to move forward ...

In praise of the plain-Jane sparrow How often have we One bird book heard the phrase, “Oh, describes them as “a it’s just a sparrow,” generally dull-looking when out on a lot,” while bird-watching other foray? guides just As a species, dismiss the sparrow them as doesn’t get LBBs (little much respect. brown In truth, they birds). are runts, Thankfully, small in stathowever, Christine Scott these little ure (ranging Island Wild in size from towhee 11 cm (4.5 in.) to 19 cm relatives more than (7.5 in.), with unremake up for their markable brown and drab appearance with gray plumage. their beautiful songs,

and these great little singers bring much joy whenever they’re about. Within the sparrow family, the crowned sparrows are arguably the most beautiful, with smart head stripes that make them look “well-coiffed”. The White-crowned sports a white and black striped crown, while the Golden-crowned bears a yellow stripe with broad black band. Identification of

these two sparrows is shockingly simple. Another gorgeous sparrow is the aptlynamed Fox Sparrow, sooty chocolate above with rusty tail and smart beast streaks shaped like inverted ‘V’s. The species name derives from the ‘foxy’ red coloration of eastern and northern birds. Let’s not forget the little Song Sparrow with its dark breast spot … almost where its heart might be. On

raising three or four families each season. This kind of productivity bodes well for continuing melodic enjoyment. Three other sparrows found on the West Coast include Lincoln’s, Savannah, and my own personal favourite, the Chipping Sparrow, with its splendid rusty-red crown. But what of the (far too common) House Sparrow….an Old World sparrow not closely related to native sparrows. Much to the detriment of native species, this unwelcome immigrant competes aggressively for nest sites and displaces many desirable species. One further note that may take some by surprise…the prolific Dark-eyed Junco is a member of the…you guessed it…sparrow family! Canada’s native sparrows should be treated like royalty, and provided with food, drink, lodging (well, soft nesting bits), and every kindness that a bird might desire. Our country’s wild bird populations are taking a nosedive, and there may come a day in the not so distant future when even sparrows will no longer be around.
