Spirit Square budget approved KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Council was torn between supporting Spirit Square and freeing up funding for a new council last week. Jim Creighton, who is in charge of programming at Spirit Square, was looking for a funding commitment from council at last week’s Tuesday council meeting. “The contractor needs approval of the 2012 budget at this time in order to ensure there is sufficient time to book quality entertainment for the 2012 season along with the infrastructure necessary to stage the events,” said Ross Milnthorp, the city’s manager of parks, recreation and culture. “Approval at this time will provide the continuity necessary to build on established relationships with local groups, engage potential new local user groups and increase community participation in Spirit Square activities, particularly among the youth demographic.” Council approved a budget of $54,000 for 2012 programming but the decision wasn’t easy. “I understand the need to approve the budget now so Mr. Creighton can get started on Continued on A3

Winter home found for downtown piano KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The community piano is locked up for the winter – but not in a storage shed. Instead, the piano has found a new home in a new business on Shoppers Row.

The piano will spend the winter months inside Island Style Creative Studio – a place for artists to gather. “We needed a place to keep it for the winter and this is the best place,” Heather Gordon Murphy said. “It’s downtown; the piano can have a nice life here. It’s (the

piano) artistic and this is an artist’s studio.” The piano, which graced downtown sidewalks throughout the summer, came from inside Quay West restaurant to Island Style just last Wednesday. Gordon Murphy said the piano has already been requested for

the opening of the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Christmas market tomorrow. Gordon Murphy says she hopes the piano will also be outside for Starlight Shopping on Dec. 2. Gordon Murphy, co-owner of Raincoast Creative Arts StuContinued on A3

Spirit Square: Budget request puts councillors in dilemma Continued from A1 2012 pro g ramming but I’d like to give the new council leeway (in the event) it needs to adjust the budget,” Coun. Claire Moglove said. Coun. Andy Adams agreed but said Spirit Square is too valu-

able to the community to risk losing out on potential entertainment for next year. “While I loathe to approve (anything) that will encumber future councils, this one is a fabric of our community and I think it’s important to

proceed,” Coun. Andy Adams said. Council asked city staff if there was a way to avoid having to allocate funding prior to budget time, which is in March. “I find we’re in this, dilemma, if you will, every year with groups

and organizations looking for money from next year’s budget,” Coun. Roy Grant said. “I understand they need to pay their bills from January, February and March until the budget is approved. Is there a way to change the process so organi-

zations like this can be funded at this time of year so they’re covered until March of the following year?” Laura Ciarniello, the city’s manager of corporate services, said the city could sign a contract with the organization in question to

pre-approve funding for multiple years, similar to what the city has in place with Emterra, which is contracted by the city to do garbage pick-up. Grant said that is something the city “should be considering so we don’t have to do

this year after year.” Milnthorp said Creighton’s contract with the city ends on Dec. 31, 2013 and suggested that at that time the contractor and city could possibly work out a three-year agreement to provide “for some predictability.”

Piano: Idea for community piano brought back to Campbell River Continued from A1

dio on Shoppers Row, helped bring the community piano to Campbell River in early summer. Jan Tees, who takes dance lessons from Gordon Murphy, told Gordon Murphy about a TV show she saw about a community piano in New York. “I said ‘that’s inter-

esting, I just got back from Austin, Texas in May, and May is community piano month in Austin, Texas.’ “There were painted pianos all over – in the parks, down by the rivers, on bridges. They were left with a little sign that said ‘Play Me’,” Murphy said. So Tees, using funds from the Downtown Business Improvement

Area (BIA), bought a $75 piano from the Restore. The piano was then painted at the Art in the Square event at Spirit Square in August. John Bailey, who helped co-ordinate the painting, said close to 100 people painted something on the piano; the youngest painter was threeyears-old while the old-

est was 93. Murphy said so far the piano has been so successful that she’s thinking of adding one or two more pianos next year. For now, the community piano can be played at Island Style Creative Studio, owned and operated by Michele F linnNylander. T he new studio,

which opened last week, is a place for artists to come and collaborate and sell their art. For $10, artists can rent out wall space for their art. The studio will also have live entertainment on weekends. Flinn-Nylander says she hopes to have a junior jam, so young people will have the

chance to play their music in front of a live audience. The studio is also available for photo shoots and F linnNylander will do makeup, hair and provide costumes and props. “I wanted to have a place where people could share ideas and

Residents ended up approving, by a 52 per cent margin, a maximum amount of $9,300 or $781 per annum per lot, and two-thirds of that amount had to be matched by grants from the provincial and federal governments.

Saltwater fish tanks have been considered by many as “very difficult”, “too much work” or not for anyone that has not had a freshwater tank.....all of the above are NOT TRUE. Keeping saltwater tanks is not hard. To try to write it all down in this article is impossible so we’ll deal with the basics, AND invite you to a night at the store with us! Your first most important thing is patience. Trying to rush it, kills it! When starting out your tank, getting the right tank is key. Then making sure that you have a great support system in your local store, one that will provide you with good information, proper initial purchase requirements, where you can ask questions, make healthy purchases and feel comfortable is your first MUST HAVE. Setting up the tank; have enough rock to cycle properly (we recommend having 1-2lbs of rock per gallon), new heater, sand, and chlorine remover. Sarah Kirk To cycle the tank; salt water, sand, powerheads and heater need to be in the tank and working. Then, put in a nice tasty Owner raw prawn...and let it ROT! The prawn rotting starts your cycle. The cycle will go through 3 stages; Ammonia will be the first part of the cycle and will last 2 or so weeks, then Nitrites start to increase while your Ammonia is decreasing and will soon be at zero, following that your Nitrates will start to increase while your Nitrite is decreasing and will also soon hit zero. Nitrates are the final stage of a cycling tank. They will rise and then fall. Once Nitrate readings are at zero your tank is cycled! This process will take 6-8 weeks (this is where your patience is important). While this is happening, research fish; plan a fish list and review it with us. We will make suggestions for color, aggression issues and more once we have an idea of what you like. During the cycle you will see things happening in the tank; little white bugs (pods) will appear and algae will start to bloom. Perform a water change of 30%. NOW...you are ready for your first fish. If you think you’re interested in joining us to learn more....join us on Wednesday November 23 at 7:00pm for a night of salt water learning. We will start up a tank that night that you will be able to learn about, check up on, and check the website to follow the cycle. PLUS only the participants of the night will be able to purchase the tank with all rock, sand etc at a reduced price once it’s cycled. We are limiting the attendance so that there is still a small group feeling. Please come to the store to pick up your ticket to be one of the lucky people attending.

Some business owners just opt for a high interest Certified Financial Planner savings account but even they don’t offer much with today’s interest rates. A preferred method would be to buy a low risk, low volatility bond fund, pay no fee on the front end and structure it to have no back end fee either. So, you would end up with no fee in or out, total liquidity if you need the money, low risk and low volatility. Plus you should be able to receive 4 – 6% returns per year instead of nothing. We frequently see small businesses with $100,000 or more of cash sitting idle, when it could be adding thousands of dollars to the bottom line.

A break or a crack in a bone is called a fracture and a fracture is either open or closed. An open fracture is where the skin over the fracture is broken and a closed fracture is where the skin over the fracture is still intact. A fracture can be caused by a direct force, such as a blow or a kick, a twisting force, or by an indirect force, such as when a bone breaks some distance from the spot where the force is applied. The signs and symptoms of a fracture include: • Pain and tenderness – it is worse when the Jennifer Comeau injury is touched or moved. Branch Manager • Loss of function – the casualty cannot use the injured part. • A wound – the bone ends may be sticking out. • Swelling and bruising at the fracture site. • Deformity – any unnatural shape or unnatural position of a bone or joint. • Unnatural movement. • Shock – this increases with the severity of the injury. • Crepitus – a grating sensation or sound that can often be felt or heard when the broken ends of a bone rub together (do not test for this!) If you suspect that a person has a fracture, immobilize the injury and seek medical help.

However, insurance companies are testing to measure nicotine – and other substances – in your system, so if you are chewing nicotine gum or wearing a patch instead of smoking, you won’t qualify as a non-smoker.

It is important to note that if you have serious health issues when you request the smoker status change, the insurance company may disallow it.

I’ve quit smoking. Can I pay less for my life insurance now?

I have had a chronic cough for weeks and my doctor says it is viral and there is nothing he can do for me. How can naturopathic medicine help me? Our philosophy of healing is to boost the immune system of the body so that the body can Dr. Ingrid Pincott ND fight against viruses or bacteria Naturopathic Physician on its own. We have wonderful herbal tonics and homeopathic remedies that can address chronic cough issues. Often we have to treat the lungs for several months but you will feel better overall within a week. Of course we look at underlying lifestyle factors that could be interfering with the healing process including food sensitivities. Many of my patients no longer get colds and flus because they follow my “foundation for health” program.

“A TIRED DOG IS A GOOD DOG” Give your dog the exercise he needs, and he will spend much of his day resting – not chewing, barking, digging, escaping or destroying things. “YOUR REACTIONS AFFECT YOUR DOG’S Cathy Merrithew ACTIONS” If you allow your dog to be rewarded for some action, he’s likely to repeat it. Consciously allow rewards to happen for actions you like, and prevent your dog from getting rewarded by you or the environment for actions you don’t want to encourage. “DOGS DO WHAT WORKS” Dogs will act in ways that they’ve learned are successful, ways that gain them good things and help them avoid bad things. Behavior that is rewarded is going to be repeated.

When deciding what vaccines to give we usually look at three basic factors: prevalence, virulence and efficacy/safety. Prevalence refers to how common a disease is and how likely your pet is to get exposed to it. Virulence refers to how severe the effects of a disease are. Efficacy refers to how well a vaccine works and safety refers to how common Dr. Kevin Penner and severe side effects are. Veterinarian For example lets look at deciding whether or not to give a rabies vaccine. Rabies is relatively rare, so far in 2011 only 7 bats have tested positive for rabies in BC. The effects of a rabies infection are devastating, all animals that develop a case of rabies will die. More importantly they can pass the virus on to people who will most likely die unless they receive vaccination immediately after being exposed. The vaccines commonly used to prevent rabies in dogs and cats are very safe and effective. So even though there is relatively low prevalence we recommend rabies vaccination for all dogs and cats because of the extremely high virulence. If your pet is coming due for vaccines be sure to talk to your vet about these factors in deciding which vaccines to use.

Because our health care system is overloaded and soon will not be able to function. I urge you to be responsible and become proactive in taking charge of your health!

Seeing the Big Picture...

What makes Beachcomber’s Hybrid Hot Tub so different?

A common Outlook Express complaint: You’ve inserted a picture into a message, but your recipients can’t see it.

Beachcomber’s Hybrid hot tub is more comfortable, more energy efficient and safer. These three advantages set Hybrid apart from all the other hot tubs. How did we do it? First, we moved the motor and Terry Collins pumps outside the tub cavity. This Owner creates even more room inside the Hybrid Hot Tub for you to get comfortable. Secondly, insulating all four sides of the hot tub. Every nook and cranny is filled with insulation to make Beachcomber’s Hybrid Hot Tub the most energy efficient hot tub available today. Third, we designed a housing for the pump and motor to do double duty as a step that makes it easier for people to get in and out of the tub safely.

As of August 1st, British Columbians injured on the job will have direct access to physiotherapy treatments.

Dean Clark, Physiotherapist

WorkSafeBC has agreed that patients no longer require a doctor’s referral in order to seek the care of a physiotherapist. Unfortunately injuries may happen in the workplace, so the ability to book an appointment directly with a physiotherapist saves time and ensures that British Columbians get on the road to recovery sooner.

Celiac disease is a medical condition in which the absorptive surface of the small intestine is damaged by a substance called gluten. The body is then unable to absorb nutrients essential for good health such as protein, fat, carbohydrates, Victor Choo vitamins and minerals. Pharmacist/Owner Approximately 1 in 133 persons in Canada are affected by this disease. Common symptoms are anemia, chronic diarrhea, weight loss, fatigue, cramps and bloating, irritability. Symptoms may appear together or singularly in children or adults. Left untreated, celiac’s will show symptoms of malabsorption due to the damaged small intestine. At present there is no cure, but celiac disease is readily treated by following a gluten-free diet. At Seymour Peoples Drug Mart, we carry a large assortment of gluten-free foods and cosmetics.

WorkSafeBC injury claims now have Direct Access to physiotherapy – you don’t need to see your doctor first.

My cousin says that she needs to have gluten-free food because she is a celiac. What can you tell me about this disease?

I am hearing from a lot of clients that they are uncertain if now is the right time to purchase a home. Maybe if they wait, the prices of homes will go down as it is a Buyer’s Market right now. It is my belief if you are prequalified to buy Susanne Grundison, a home, buy now.The mortgage industry is Mortgage Specialist changing, rules are changing. It wasn’t that long ago when as a lender, I could give a client a 40 year amortization with 0 down.As well, it wasn’t that long ago that you could take a variable rate mortgage just as easily as a 5 year closed mortgage and qualify under the same rules. But all that has changed. So if you are prequalified to buy a home when Interest rates are low and housing prices are low then purchasing instead of waiting is a good choice. There is alot of speculation that the rules are going to change again. CMHC is making some noise that there could be further changes coming in the future. If they make changes to the mortgage act (like they did when they went from 40 year to 35 year amortizations, and then 35 to 30 year amortizations), your buying power shrinks.As well, interest rates are so low right now, any large shifts in the interest rates or housing prices affects your buying power. So, if you are buying now, under todays guidelines, you may find the ability to own the home you are looking for more affordable than waiting. As well if you find the home you can see yourself being happy in, don’t wait, as most likely it will be sold to someone else. I would love to meet with you to discuss getting a preapproval and a 120 rate guarantee.

Within reason you can. But under the law, each individual has an obligation to adequately provide for their spouse and children. As long as you have made adequate provisions in your Will for your Gurdeep Sidhu, CGA spouse and children, you can Notary Public choose to gift rest to a particular child, charity, or any other individual. The value of your estate is only one factor among other determining factors. The intent of this law was to protect the dependant spouse and minor or disabled children. However, the adult children are also able to use the same “adequately provided for” argument to contest their parent’s Will. Courts have the final authority to determine whether the Will makes adequate provisions for spouse or children. This is a complex matter and you should consult a legal professional for further advice.

There is a 43” space from the room’s corner to the picture window beside your bed. There Evelyn M Interior Designer is also 12” on the other side of the corner to the patio doors. I suggest designing a unit that mounts onto the 43” space, 12” up from the floor. The top 1/2 would have an arm bracket for your TV so that you can pivot the TV towards the deck or towards your bed, the chords would be hidden within the unit accessible through a hinged door on the lower 1/2 . The lower 1/2 would also have 1-1/2” thick floating shelves for the speakers, etc. To see the finished result look for Bill’s wall mounted TV unit on our website.

McMann seeks re-election Joyce McMann is running for re-election to the board of education. “I am honoured to have served on the board of education for School District 72 this past term,” McMann says. “I have learned a tremendous amount about our schools and the governance of School District 72. I am reassured by the earnest commitment and competence of the leadership and frontline work that makes up our education services. I am also more aware of the critical role that trustees play in sustaining a public education system that is rooted in the values and culture of the communities it serves.” McMann grew up in Campbell River and has worked with children and their families in the community for about 40 years. McMann says her experience and training has confirmed her commitment to the critical importance of early childhood development in

setting a trajectory for lifelong learning and success, and, now, early learning falls under the mandate of boards of education. “Research confirms that a child’s first and most powerful learning takes place within their families,” McMann says. “Strong, positive relationships between families, schools and community are essential to focusing on the growth of each child toward an adult life of success and well-being. In this light, I strongly support the focus on enhancing community connections.” McMann has participated in the community in a variety of roles over the years. Currently, she sits on the Community Council of Partners for Success By 6, the City Community Advisory Committee, Literacy Now, the Early Care and Learning Coalition, the Early Childhood Development Table, and the Campbell River Child Care Society. McMann has

Table. “Most importantly, I will continue to learn from my dayto-day work with families and use this awareness, if re-elected, in the decisions the board makes in pursuit of success for all learners,” McMann says. “I believe in the strength that comes from schools and the District bringing their expertise and resources to a collaborative community approach to the challenges that face us in striving for excellence. “In this pursuit, I am excited by the opportunity

re-configuration will provide us in working with the community toward enhancing our learning environment models, and the collaboration that is already seeing innovation take hold in schools around environmental thoughtfulness.” McMann says advocacy is part of her history, and it will continue to be a role necessary for trustees, particularly in seeking predictable, stable and adequate funding to meet the board’s goals for all the community’s learners. “I believe that public education is a critical component in our vision for our community, democracy, and, ultimately, how our world moves forward,” McMann says. “I believe in the power of public education to sustain, enrich, and influence our individual and collective future. With your support, I would like to continue to work on behalf of children and families at the Board table.”

Our View

Being a politician’s easy – until you become one Elections are a great opportunity to explore fresh ideas about the way we’re going to move forward over the next few years. But as voters listen, they should keep three questions in mind: Do candidates truly understand the issues of We say: Elections the community? Do challengers have ideas to follow criticism? Are are a great these ideas affordable What are the opportunity to consequences of the change being explore ideas promoted? The first one seems obvious. Except that in every election – federal, provincial and municipal – there are candidates who run on

a single issue, although the jobs of elected officials involve myriad tasks and problems. So here’s a suggestion for candidates: Don’t just tell us what you’re against. Tell us what you are also for, and how you’re going to achieve it. Tell us what it’s going to cost and how it will be paid for. In other words, do your homework. Do candidates also understand the limits of the office they’re seeking? Municipal governments and school boards are creatures of provincial legislation. Their powers are clearly defined. And although those powers continue to evolve, they remain limited.

Vision and ideals are important, but they need to be grounded in reality. Which brings us to the third question: Are they practical? Candidates could promise to cut our tax burden in half, hire twice the number of police officers and firefighters, or cut the budgets of other departments. But they need to demonstrate the implications of these suggestions. A freeze on spending may mean reduced services (or the need for alternative sources of revenue) because of factors like inflation. Being a politician may appear easy – until you become one. – Black Press

Good point: City Hall Having attended the recent political forum, I have to comment on remarks made by mayoral candidate Mr. (Walter) Jakeway. In references made about staff at City Hall he indicated: 1) Staff should take ownership of the budget. Wow – this is scary to me – this is one of the most important decisions a council makes every year. 2) Staff shoujld be out and about. I think, when necessary, they are – I see them regularly but mainly, be at your desk and get the job done. 3) Staff do not have job descriptions or performance reviews. I know this is not true. As a past city council finance and personnel committee chair, performance reviews were done on a regular basis. I wish Mr. Jakeway had done his background work before making these statements. Bill Matthews Campbell River ●●●● Regarding the width of the upgraded section of highway between Rockland Road and Hilchey Road, has anyone else noted the number of private driveways, bus pullouts, and the accessible lane that parallels the highway for a short distance? Several cars and busses can pull off the road temporarily to accomodate emergency vehicles. If this is raised during the municipal election, check it out for yourself. V Stirling Campbell River

‘Occupy (fill in name here)’ is just another squat

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

A full three weeks after the Occupy Wall Street protest camp sprang up in New York City, a few stragglers announced they were almost ready to “Occupy Maple Ridge” and “Occupy Revelstoke.” Perhaps other pathetic protests are still being dreamed up around B.C. But most have already packed up, and in places such as Prince George, these anti-capitalist rallies never led to an illegal squat. Let’s be clear about our squats, the ones in Canada and particularly B.C. They are explicitly anti-capitalist and statist in their message, which is presumably why they were funded by government unions. Despite the free food, power and porta-potties, these squats quickly

became filthy and dangerous as the chronic street drug population replaced the spoiled young drummers and hula-hoopers who camped out to curse corporations on their iPhones. And yes, squats are still illegal here, following a unanimous October decision of the B.C. Court of Appeal against David Arthur Johnston. This pretend-homeless guy’s antics are at the root of the latest squatter outbreak. Victoria and its courts caved in to Johnston and allowed camping on public property at night. But he demanded 24-hour squatting rights, because some supposedly homeless people are supposedly insomniacs too. Turns out there were plenty of shelter beds on which

to snooze away the day or night, and his vague claim of a constitutional right to camp on public property was summarily dismissed. I had a brief exchange with an Occupy Vancouver “organizer,” one Min Reyes, as she tried to rouse the reluctant radicals of Maple Ridge. Reyes defines herself in her Twitter profile as “Flirting with Anarchism while making love to Socialism,” which sums up B.C.’s occupy movement as well as anything. “My personal approach to the analysis of society relies on Marx’s historical materialism,” Reyes writes on her blog. After majoring in Marxism at SFU, she moved on to BCIT’s journalism program, but dropped out after a couple of weeks because her studies

“compromised my personal values.” Turns out BCIT is all about “skills” to get a “job.” Bummer. A glimpse of these “values” was on display when a reporter from CKNW radio tried to cover a heroin overdose at Occupy Vancouver. She was shouted down and accused of shaping the news to benefit “Coke and McDonalds.” At Occupy Victoria, which I visited a few times before it descended into another needle park, signs warned against “chem trails,” smart meters and corporations. Campers were urged to “nationalize finance, energy and food” industries. Five-year plan for tractor production, anyone? Nationalizing banks is also at the Continued on A19

Snow removal costs drop, city says KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city says its new snow and ice policy was a success, with last year’s snow removal costs lower than in the past four years. Drew Hadfield, the c i t y ’s t r a n s p o r t a tion manager, said total expenses for the 2010/2011 winter season were down despite an increase in snow and ice over the previous winter. “This policy has only been in effect for less than a year and initial assessment suggests that it is providing acceptable levels of service with reduced operating expenses,”

Hadfield said in a report to council. The city says total operating expenses last winter were $148,446, compared to expenses of $176,367 and $272,242 for the two seasons prior. One of the goals of the new policy, which council adopted Nov. 3, 2010, was to reduce the amount of overtime by city workers to keep roads cleared. Hadfield said that while residential areas were managed within normal working hours, overtime was required on priority routes in order to meet the standards outlined in the policy. As a consequence, the

total cost of overtime was roughly $10,554, an increase of $6,327 over 2009/2010. But Hadfield pointed out last winter was rougher than the one before. “The city experienced one major and three minor snow events during the 2010/11 winter season as compared to one minor event during the 2009/10 winter season,” Hadfield said. “In addition, the 2010/11 winter season also produced a number of freezing rain/ ice events and a higher than average number of cold temperature days than experienced in recent years. The colder temperatures also extended the snow

presence beyond the norm.” Hadfield said a closer comparison can be made by looking at 2008/09, which had a more comparable winter climate to last year, and which cost the city $27,844 more than last year did. When council adopted the snow and ice policy last year, it was the first time since 2004 that the city had such a policy to guide the city. B e fo re t h at , t h e city would respond to whichever roads received complaints, with no set priorities given to each road and no timelines for clearing.

Under the new policy, not every street is cleared which saves money. Instead the policy establishes a system where arterial roads ( D o g w o o d , A l d e r, Hilchey, Highway 19A) receive first priority, followed by collector roads (Erikson, Everg reen, McPhedran) and lastly, local roads which typically connect to collector roads. The city’s Dogwood Operations Centre received and tracked snow and ice related questions and concerns throughout the winter. The city received seven complaints about road conditions.

Fletcher: ‘Progressive’ cities fouled by vomit, feces and needles for their typically selfserving, financially illiterate contract demands. Here in Victoria, as in Vancouver, the huge growth in shelter, food, clothing and transition housing service doesn’t impress the hardcore system users. Victo-

ria’s mayor built his reputation with years of street outreach work, but he’s still targeted for the ugliest treatment, including vandalism at his family home. Victoria council even kowtowed by voting to “support” the squat

how they would each stimulate the tourism sector. Rabu said Campbell River has so many natural assets and more to offer than other larger areas on the Island. He said the city simply needs to market it more aggressively. Stewart said there are already lots of tourists coming to Campbell River. “It’s here, but to keep it, we need to market it,” Stewart said. Candidates also discussed outgoing Mayor Charlie Cornfield’s open door sessions, where members of the public could stop by Cornfield’s office to discuss what was on their mind. “I think it’s important for the mayor to communicate with the public face-toface,” Grant said. “I would make sure I regularly set aside time when people could come and sit down and talk about the issues.” Jakeway said his door would always be open. “Certainly there should be open government,” he said. “You can call or e-mail me anytime and you will get a personal response every time.” Rabu said as mayor, there needs to be a commitment to spend time with the taxpayers. Rabu said his door will be open Monday to Friday from eight in the morning until five at night. Stewart said open government is common sense. “When available, I should be there to talk to you,” Stewart said. The four mayoral candidates, as well as council candidates, will be at it again on Thursday when Campbellton First hosts a forum with a focus on Campbellton.

Four Seasons. As a number of band members play in the Little Big Band, the concert band has prepared the jazz standard Autumn Leaves which features saxophone and trumpet solos. Siorai Se ptember (Gaelic for eter nal september) includes poetry, which will be spoken by euphonium player Doug Craig.

Ghost Dances was inspired by the massacre of Lakota Sioux at Wounded Knee in 1890.

First classical recital of season T

rio ‘86 will kick off the first classical music recital of the season at the Quadra Island Community Centre. The ensemble of clarinet, viola and piano will play at 7 p.m. on Sun., Nov. 20. This unusual grouping of instruments was first brought together by Mozart in his Kegelstatt Trio K498 in 1786. The name Kegelstsatt, meaning bowling alley, was given by the publisher, as it was supposedly composed while playing skittles. Others were inspired to write for this combination of instruments, explaining the title The Kegelstatt Legacy for this program, which comprises the original Mozart and works by Robert Schumann, Max Bruch, the modern Hungarian composer Gyorgy Kurtag, and Canadian composer Jerry Semchyshyn. Trio members for this occasion are clarinettist Krysta Martynes, violist Pemi

Paull, and pianist Marc Wieser. Martynes studied in the United States, continuing in Europe at the National Conservatory in Paris, the Accadamia Perosi in Italy, and earned a Masters in musicology at Paris VIII University. She is a prime researcher at institutions specializing in mixed media, and as a classical musician has toured in France, Germany, Mexico, Ukraine and China. As a contemporary musician she has featured as a soloist at festivals in France, Italy and Austria. Paull specializes in new and early music, as soloist and chamber musician. He is founder and artistic director of Warhol Dervish, an unorthodox chamber music collective in Montreal, and was awarded the 2002 CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award for chamber music. He is a member of three important new music ensembles, and is one of the few violists in the world to present, with critical acclaim,

Council approves over $20,000 extra for Rivercorp KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The city will reimburse Rivercorp for the money it spent to recruit a new Chief

E x e c u t ive O f f i c e r (CEO) despite objections from one city councillor. Mayor Charlie Cornfield recommended council allocate $21,869

from its contingency budget to Rivercorp for its CEO expenses and to complete current programs this year. “There were some unbudgeted expenses,”

Cornfield told council Tuesday night. “Council, during its 2011 budget deliberation on Rivercorp funding, did not provide contingent resourcing for the

recruitment of a new CEO.” Cornfield said it cost $11,700 to hire CEO Vic Goodman because Rivercorp paid for several job applicants’ travel

and interview expenses as well as relocation costs for Goodman, who previously lived in Saskatchewan. Cornfield said Rivercorp, the city’s eco-

nomic development organization, has been representing Campbell River at various tourism events and conventions which are valuable to the city. “If we lose our booth space, it’s very hard to get it back,” Cornfield said. “And Rivercorp needs money to carry out these initiatives. These programs and costs were deferred at budget until such time as Rivercorp secured a new CEO. Now that the CEO has been in place for several months, programs have been implemented promoting Campbell River and its business activity to year end.” Cornfield said it’s anticipated Rivercorp will need $10,169 to pay for those programs, including Geoscience BC, a program that aims to stimulate mining exploration. Coun. Ziggy Stewart reminded council he has been outspoken on the issue of Rivercorp and has been critical of the job Rivercorp has done for the kind of money the city has invested in it. “This is in no way a reflection of the volunteers who work on this board, they do a great job,” Stewart said. “But Rivercorp itself seems to have some flaws. I’ll use an analogy, if you will, to a leaky boat that uses taxpayers’ money to fill the holes. I don’t know why there are overruns continually, but it goes to the heart of the problem – that there is a problem.” Coun. Mary Storry said she had been hesitant to support the funding prior to Tuesday’s council meeting, but changed her mind after speaking with Rivercorp’s CEO. “I wanted to to take the opportunity to thank Mr.Goodman, who spent time with me to work through my angst with this issue,” Storry told council. Council supported forwarding $21,869 to Rivercorp with the exception of Stewart who was opposed. Cornfield added that “there are a number of exciting new initiatives coming” including the B.C. government’s new Job Action Plan, which Minister of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Pat Bell said he is considering Campbell River as a pilot community for.

THEY SAID IT: “When you just see how happy they were to get a win, it makes (a loss) much easier to take.” – Roger Douglas

Skaters’ efforts net good results

Bantam A Tyees stymied by Clippers The Nanaimo Clippers scored twice late in the third period to pull out a 6-4 victory over the Number 1 Auto Body Bantam A Tyees Saturday after noon at Rod Brind’Amour Arena. It was a seesaw affair which Campbell River led 1-0 after the opening frame on a deflection by Josh Coblenz. Nanaimo scored twice in the second but the Tyees managed to stay even thanks to a powerplay marker by Gavin Rauser. The Clippers took the lead early in the third but Rio Massee quickly tied it, putting in his own rebound a couple minutes later. N a n a i m o re s t o re d their one goal advantage midway through the period only to have the Tyees battle back once again, tieing it on a breakaway tally by Grady McInnes. The Clippers scored the eventual game winner on the power play with just over five minutes remaining. Although disappointed his team didn’t win, Tyees head coach Peter Martin was pleased with the effort. “ We ’ve fo c u s e d recently on being more mentally prepared and I thought we were today,” he said, “We had a chance with a five-on-three power play late in the game but just didn’t make it happen.” The Tyees have a stiff test this weekend as they compete in an 8-team AAA tournament hosted by South Delta. Their first game is Thursday afternoon.

RENÉE ANDOR/THE MIRROR

Campbell River Fighting Eagles junior bantam player Austin Donaldson ducks, dekes and dodges his way to his second touchdown of the game on Sunday. The Ladysmith Steelers won the game 28-12.

Bantam Eagles offer starters to their opponents

T

he Campbell River Eagles Junior Bantam showed the ultimate sportsmanship Sunday. They helped out their opponents by lending them some of their senior players and ended up getting beat 28-12. The Ladysmith Steelers are a new team in its first year as a Junior Bantam squad. Although their Pee Wees are doing well, the Junior Bantam team has been struggling all year with no wins and they have lost players over it. But they showed up with 10 players to play Campbell River and were willing to give it a go.

Needless to say, they were not optimistic about the outcome against a very strong Campbell River squad. The coaches decided to make their last regular season game fun for all the players because no matter what the outcome, it would not change the standings in the playoffs. They didn’t want any team to fall out of the league and were willing to help in any way they can to keep a new team to the league going. So, they offered up some of their players to the Ladysmith coach to have a fun game and he accepted. They did not just give him a few younger players, they

gave him four experienced starters in quarterback CJ Foy, fullback Dakota Donaldson, and two big starting linemen Marcus Haslehurst and Mason Toner. “This may have been a misjudgement in my behalf,” joked Campbell River coach Roger Douglas, “because those guys took it to us with Ladysmith scoring four touchdowns and four converts to our two touchdowns which were scored by Austin Donaldson playing as our back up tailback. The good part about it all was all our new younger players got to play both ways for the whole game and we got to look at fresh players for the

offense. “Once again this team made me very proud of them because when we went looking for volunteers to play for the Steelers I thought very few would want to leave and play for another team but boy was I wrong, they were all jumping up wanting to play for them so they could take on our team.” “At the final whistle, the score was 28 to 12 for Ladysmith and there was some very happy Steeler players jumping around,” Douglas said. “As a coach it is tough to take a loss but when you see just how happy they were to get a win it makes it much easier to take.”

Campbell River Skating Club was well represented last weekend at the Vancouver Island Regional Championships in Port Alberni. New solos were presented with favourable performances at the first competition of the season: ■ Blake Strachan: 1st – Senior Bronze Men. ■ Tori-Lynn Temple: 2nd – Junior Silver. ■ Carly Nightingale: 3rd – Senior Silver. ■ Leana Tremblay: 5th – Junior Bronze, 13 & over. ■ Savannah Wasden – 5th Senior Bronze. ■ Megan Weber: 7th – Junior Bronze, 12 & under. ■ Jenni Peniuk: 7th – Juvenile Women. ■ Mia Rosa: 8th – PrePreliminary. ■ Mairin ShieldsBrown: 8 th – Junior Bronze, 12 & under. ■ Carla Atkinson: 12th – Junior Bronze, 13 & over. ■ Samantha Clowes: Bronze Certificate – Performance.

OPINION

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2011 | CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

HEROES – All the people in Campbell River who helped to raise funds for our Mexican breast cancer survivors clinic. Thanks to their caring and concern we have been able to invest in an ample supply of compression sleeves for the women who need these devices after surgery. These have been very much needed in past years and we have never had enough to go around. What’s even better is that there is still money left to help with setting up and running the clinic. On behalf of the more than 300 women who attend Cancer de Mama Clinic each year. Muchas Gracias. HEROES – I would like to tell you about some of the heroes in my life. I go to Forest Circle Daycare when my parents have to go to work and the ladies that look after me while I am there are heroes. They all manage to keep a whole pile of kids like me safe, entertained, and happy. They always helped me remember Mom’s Day, and Dad’s Day so I could make a craft and surprise them when they picked me up at the end of the day. I asked my Dad once why there was no Kid’s Day

and he just laughed at me (I am not sure why). I thought it was pretty awesome getting to watch tadpoles grow up and watching butterflies climb out of their cocoon. Going on field trips and taking the bus was super fun! Having a graduation when I am only five years old was neat. The little paper hat you made me looked pretty funny but my parent put a picture of me in the hat on the wall so they must have liked it. Spider Man, Transformers, Amber, Brittany, Kyla, Lisa, Sherry, and Anna are all heroes to me! I am leaving Forest Circle to start school and I will miss you a whole bunch. Thanks for making daycare so much fun! – Quinton Darcy HEROES – ECOLE des Deux Mondes school would like to thank all those involved in our playground project. A special thank you needs to go out to the team of volunteers that dedicated their time to see the project through to completion. Thank you so much for all your hard work. We would also like to thank Thrifty Foods for their continued support through the use of the smile cards. The

and Tamarac Streets during an accident: the three witnesses, Sandy, Ed and Mike, also the firemen, police and the ambulance drivers, Dr. Grace and Brad the nurse at the C.R. Hospital. You were all wonderful and I thank you very much. By the grace of God I am still here. – Kathy

Heroes & Zeros

money we raised was instrumental in making this project happen. It is great to see a community come togther this way, we couldn’t have done it without you all. – EDM PAC HEROES – those who came out to Sayward to build my deck so that I may again enjoy the view of the mountains, and ocean. Thank you to Maureen, Claire, Brad, Tim, Ted, Doug, Carole, Gerry, Trudy and Gary, Darcy and Chris, Brenda and Al. Thank you also to Chris May from Windsor Mill Sales Ltd. Rain or shine, I have been out there every day enjoying the view. I can’t express in words the joy and peace it brings me. – XOXO Diane Beaton. HEROES – The folks that helped me at 16th

HEROES – The many contributors to the Paws for a Cause. Between just three individuals, over $2,000 was raised. I would like to send a Thousand Thanks to Kaprino Logging, Cress Auto, Pallan Timber and Elvira’s Spa and my friends and families who supported my passion for dogs. – Thanks again, Tansy, Rosa, Milo and Calle PS. Hopefully at some point soon we can raise funds for a new and badly needed SPCA. ZEROS – To the roofing companies in Campbell River. Yes, we ought to try to shop locally. So to the phone book I go to look up the various businesses offering services for my needs. Four numbers are listed. One gave me a quote over the phone. Thank you. The most professional so far. The

other three could not compute the numbers over the phone. They had to visit the site. Fair enough, I guess. No one ever came to do that, or if they did, no one called. Here we are almost three weeks later with almost no response. One company did call, but left no message. Really, then, no response. So, are these companies so busy they have no time to respond to enquiries? If so, good for them, but it would seem they could do the courteous thing, and at least do a follow up call and say they were too busy. Should I now go to Courtenay or Comox for pricing on services? – Not impressed by some local companies. HEROS – All the people who donated their bottles and cans to the Pee Wee “A� Tyees on Saturday, Oct. 1. Very much appreciated. – The hockey parents and players. ZEROS – To the new owners of Shady Maples Trailer park for cutting down the tree in front of my home. Apparently the roots were causing some problems with the retaining wall which was proven incorrect when the contractor exposed

the roots. It takes a lifetime for a tree to grow as beautiful as that one and a moment to destroy it and the ambiance of my home. The other offensive character of the new owners is it was done without even introducing yourself to the park members as a new owner . I hope Lew Woolman can rest in peace. It was one of his favorite trees as well. – Linda HEROES – On behalf of the Downtown BIA I would like to thank the City Parks Department for the beautiful job on the landscaping upgrade in the Tidemark/Library square. The area was in need of attention and now it is something very inviting and attractive that will be sure to be admired by visitors to the Tidemark, Library, and that part of Shoppers Row. It was great that the work was completed without causing disruption in access to the businesses in the area. I would also like to thank Stacey Larson from Ladybug Greenhouse for her input into the landscape design process. – Erika Anderson, Chair, Downtown BIA

HEROES – The many people who supported the BC Thanksgiving Food Drive in Campbell River on Saturday, Sept. 17. We were pleased to collect more than 1,600 pounds of groceries for the Campbell River Food Bank, and look forward to increasing our coverage next year. – Doug Greep, Bishop, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints HEROES – Those who gave of their time and skill to offer their services, free of charge, at the recent Curves Open House. All members and guests enjoyed the facials, hair and nail demo’s, and great massages. Special thanks to A Cut Above, Merle Norman, Spotlight Hair Studio, The Esthetics Studio (Elvira Berry), & Studio 10. Thanks to the vendors who had great displays! Shore Runners, Swicked Cycles, Party Lite, Nicki’s Photography, Lady Funk, Jockey, Tupperware, & Gold Canyon Gifts. Big hugs to the amazing Staff of Curves‌you are caring Super Heroes. Welcome to the many, many new members who make our club a joy to attend. – Leslie Hanes, Owner, Curves Campbell River

Learn local WW II history One of Canada’s least known World War II military fortresses was built on tiny Yorke Island BC, six kilometres northeast of Kelsey Bay. Local author Catherine Marie Gilbert has written a local history book entitled Yorke Island and the Uncertain War – Defending Canada’s Western Coast during World War II and will be giving a pictorial presentation at the Museum at Campbell River on Fri., Nov. 11 from 1-3 p.m. about this intriguing place. The Yorke Island Battery, which was occupied by both army and naval forces from 1938–1945, protected the “backdoor� northern approach to Vancouver from Japanese that were suspected of planning an attack along the coast by boat or plane. The fort was armed with guns, searchlights and sometimes up to 500 men. Life for the soldiers on Yorke Island was self-sufficient; there were barracks, kitchens, a canteen, a drill hall, administration offices, a hospital, and a quartermaster store in the camp on the eastern shore, and eventually 62 buildings in total on the 55 hectare island. Highlighted by personal stories from local people who remem-

REMEMBRANCE DAY NOVEMBER 11, 2011 Campbell River Ceremony at the Cenotaph 11:00am

Inventory of wars in contemporary history Remembrance Day is an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices that today’s soldiers make and on the sacrifices of all those who preceded them. The deadliest war: The Great War of 1914-1918 is the greatest drama known to Europe in terms of the number of deaths. The totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century and the Second World War are the direct consequences of this war. But it was the Second World War that was the deadliest, with more than 55 million deaths, of which 30 million were civilian. The most remembered war: This is the Second World War because of the atom bombs dropped on Japan and because it left its mark on three generations. Fortunately, those who remember it also remember the slogan “No more war!” The bloodiest battle in Canadian history: The Battle of the Somme took place from July 1 to the end of November, 1916. Remembrance Day is meant to help us remember On the first day of this battle, the 1st Newfoundland Regiment the meaning of the most significant wars of our era. was virtually annihilated in the village of Beaumont. Machine guns, barbed wire, trenches, and massive artillery shelling resulted in ferocious fighting marked by heavy losses. Some 24,713 Canadians and Newfoundlanders died in the battle. The largest naval battle: The greatest naval concentration of contemporary history was deployed in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean area on September 21, 2007. This unprecedented demonstration of power by the United States against Iran included three aircraft carriers supported by about 40 escort vessels and nearly 100 aircraft.

In honour of those who saved the world In life one man can seldom see His impact in society Our soldiers fight to blinded eyes To allow us all to live our lives Taking up arms against a foe To save us from the pain they know To give us all out liberty They bear the brunt of misery No greater duty can one bear An act of courage few would dare Endless sacrifices for 4 years Keeping back our greatest fears November 11th is a day of love To remember those now up above Men and women far too great To be remembered upon one date No words bring justice to their fight But I will try with all my might To bring them honour for the days They fought to alay such evil ways No act of love could be so grand As one brave soldier’s final stand So now I will say at last We must remember what has past Those who have died and those who live And all the thanks to them we give They are all those who meet the call Preserving good for one and all So on this day I ask you pray For heroes of our memory Thank for your sacrifice It was this act that gave us life.

We Will Remember

Serendipity in the Garden 968 Shoppers Row • 250-287-9949

To the men of York Island. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row,

To you from failing hands we throw

That mark our place; and in the sky

“In memory of our fallen war heros”.

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

If ye break faith with us who die

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

We are the Dead. Short days ago

Patricia Gagnon

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

In Flanders fields.

Loved and were loved, and now we lie Patriciaforcouncil.wordpress.com

Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders fields.

Honouring our Veterans

With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children, England mourns for her dead across the sea. Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free. Solemn the drums thrill: Death August and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres. There is music in the midst of desolation And a glory that shines upon our tears. They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

In memory of those who gave their lives so that we may live in peace.

250-287-7003

At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. They mingle not with laughing comrades again; They sit no more at familiar tables of home; They have no lot in our labour of the day-time; They sleep beyond England’s foam. But where our desires are and our hopes profound, Felt as a well-spring that is hidden from sight, To the innermost heart of their own land they are known As the stars are known to the Night; As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain, As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, To the end, to the end, they remain.

With holiday shopping beginning, consider donating a gift or two to the men at the Second Chance Recovery House. “Adults deserve to celebrate Christmas like everyone else, and be able to feel that someone cares about them,” said Tessera Brooks, executive director of Second Chance. The men are at Second Chance to get help in ending their addictions to alcohol and drugs. The house is operated by the North Island Supportive Recovery Society and has been open since 1990. Each year they help over 200 men become clean and sober, who in turn return to the workforce, work as volunteers, go back to school, and reunite with family and friends, making a positive difference in the community. “Christmas is often a difficult time of year for our clients because of things that have happened to them in

the past during the holidays and it also a time often associated with partying and drinking a lot,” explained Brooks. “And because they are away from family and friends we try to make it as a comfortable as possible for them.” The clients each receive a gift or two and a stocking on Christmas morning. Later in the day they enjoy a turkey dinner. Suggested gift ideas include new hoodies, t-shirts, scarves, gloves, toques, sweat pants, slippers, daytimers or calendars, baseball hats and wallets. Ideas for stocking stuffers include razors, shaving cream, deodorant, shampoo, soap, s o ck s, u n d e r we a r, chocolates, candy, gum, toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss, nail clippers and hair brushes. Donations can be dropped off at the Second Chance house at 647 Birch St. or call 830-1103 to arrange for pick up.

They also have long pointed beaks that have serrated edges and are designed to probe even if the soil is frozen. Long, dark-grey legs have splayed feet equipped with claws which they use to defend themselves by jumping and striking out like a kick-boxer. Although in flight they are very elegant – holding their neck and feet outstretched – they are less elegant when they land. Simulating a parachute, they drop to the ground with half open wings and spread their short tail feathers that resemble a” Victorian bustle” to slow them down. Habitat for sandhill cranes includes freshwater wetlands, bogs, sedge meadows and open grasslands. They also delight in devouring freshly planted crops like alfalfa. Staple foods for these cranes include plant tubers, grains, small mice and snakes, insects and worms.

MIKE YIP/SPECIAL TO THE MIRROR

Sandhill cranes migrate through our region but don’t usually stop by.

Sandhill cranes mate for life and have spectacular courtship rituals, they dance and prance, leap into the air tossing sticks or clumps of grass vocalizing at the same time with rattling calls and throaty croaks. In ten years at Mountainaire Avian Rescue Society (MARS) I have only encountered one crane that was very memorable. Last week, a single bird was reported to have grounded in Merville. It appeared that the bird was left behind when the flock

continued its southern migration. It sought out company at a Muscovy duck farm. The ducks were in an enclosure and the crane was pacing along the fence line maybe hoping to join them. Having determined that the crane could fly and was foraging and not in any distress the decision was made to try and catch and relocate the crane with a flock. When I heard about the crane and its relocation, I immediately thought of Mike Yip who is always out and about photographing wildlife and I had seen recent sandhill crane photos on his web site. Mike confirmed the sandhill cranes were still at the Reifel Bird sanctuary in Delta and offered to transport the crane once it was caught. Capturing the bird was very easy with the help of a new remotely triggered “bow net” (donated by the Hornby Eagles Project Society). The capture of the bird created quite a stir with biologists from the Canadian Wildlife Service and The Hemmera

Corporation, who were informed that the bird was coming to the Reifel Sanctuary. They conducted blood and feather samples to help determine the sub species which identified it as a lesser sandhill crane. The bird was then banded with a federal band and also bright orange and yellow bands on the other leg in hopes that birders will be alerted to record its location. It had been hoped to mount a satellite tracking transmitter on the crane but permits could not be obtained in time. Data collected will be invaluable for further understanding, distribution, migration, and taxonomy of the cranes so far only one other B.C. bird and seven from Alaska have been banded. If you wish to find out more please consider a trip to Delta and experience the truly amazing phenomenon of migration. Thanks to Mike Yip and all the volunteers who were part of the sandhill cranes migratory dilemma. To report injured wildlife or for advice call 1-800304-9968. www.wingtips.org

All Quality Foods Stores will be closed Friday, November 11, 2011. We offer apologies to those who are inconvenienced by our stores closing, and hope that our decision is in line with the Royal Canadian Legion’s message to “Take time to remember”. Once again this November 11th, Canadians around the world and here at home will gather and pause in silent remembrance. Many of us will continue the tradition of attending organized services designed to ensure the families and peers of the fallen know the immeasurable value of their loved ones’ service and sacrafice. This year’s ceremonies will likely be tinged with sorrow for the loss of many good Canadians from recent conflicts, yet carry a sense of relief that many more are returning safely home. We all owe these Canadians a debt of gratitude now and in the future.

At Quality Foods, we feel it is important to take the time to honour our Veterans, past and present who gave their service, their future and their lives so that we may all live in peace. For us, Remembrance Day is more than honouring those who sacrificed their futures and their lives for all Canadians; we need to also guard wisely against the spectre of a dark history repeated, and help our young people to remember.

At the 11th hour of each November 11th, Canadians across the nation pause for two minutes of silent remembrance for those who served our country, and still serve today. “For the Fallen” They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. - Laurence Binyon, 1914

Gwen Williams her husband, brother, sister-in-law and sister went on holiday to France and Belgium. They explored Paris, Normandy and Belgium and visited Vimy Ridge, an incredible monument to memory of the fallen soldiers. Another place was Ypres, Belgium shown here with her brother with the Mirror. They also went to Juno Beach where their father and uncles landed on D-Day along with many others during WWII. It is also the gravesite of one uncle who lost his life during the days following D-Day. It was an emotional and wonderous journey walking through so much history everywhere. And the Campbell River Mirror travelled with them all along the journey.
