Thieves help themselves to students’ wood KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Wood chopped and set aside for a Timberline school fundraiser was stolen just one day before the students’ wood cut, say teachers who helped organize the event. The Timberline Interact Club filled about 28 loads of wood last Saturday despite losing a good chunk of wood.

“On Friday, an older pickup truck let themselves into the vacant lot which had the wood for our wood cut and helped themselves,” says Barb Izard, Timberline’s Interact Club teacher. “They took wood that was to be used for our fundraiser and had been cut by Rotarians for that purpose. They trespassed on private property.” The wood, which was being sold

for $150 per truckload, was taken from a private lot adjacent to Bier Road, just off of Crawford Road. Rotarian Doug Phyall says witnesses reported seeing two men inside the truck which was either an older Chevy or GMC pickup with slats on the side of the pickup box. The colour and license plate number of the vehicle are unknown. RCMP were not called. Izard says she hopes the

Stewart eyes mayor’s seat PUMPKIN FEST! KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The next mayor of Campbell River is going to have “a nasty, demanding job” says Coun. Ziggy Stewart – and it’s a position he wants. Stewart told the Mirror Wednesday morning he is running for the mayor’s chair in the Nov.19 municipal election. “I’m taking a chance, but I’d rather take the chance than sit there for three more years listening to the same old rhetoric,” Stewart says. “I’ve enjoyed my time as a councillor but it’s got to the point where I want to make a difference and to do that I’ve got to sit in the mayor’s chair.” Stewart has spent the last six years on council and during that time served under the public safety portfolio and helped organize the current Future Forestry Task Force. “I’ve delivered on both of them, no one is more critical of deliverance than I am,” Stewart says. “I feel passionately that if I’m going to take this job on, then you do it right. But that’s up to the electorate if they believe I’ve done a good

Ziggy Stewart

job up until now.” Stewart has spent his past term on council trying to attract business. He has been pushing to bring a sawmill or a pellet plant to Campbell River to create more jobs but it’s been a struggle. “Polarization does the community no good and it sends out a message that Campbell River has problems,” Stewart says. “People watch what we’ re doing and if we can’t get our act together people are not going to want to invest money in Campbell River and it hurts all of us. “We have to attract business back to Campbell River. When we attract business, we attract jobs and jobs are what we need badly.” The biggest challenge for future councils will be trying to work out a

balanced budget, while still delivering quality services the community expects, Stewart says. “City Hall has to l e a d by e x a m p l e ; many businesses in town have understood what it takes to make it through lean times and City Hall needs to understand that too,” Stewart says. “Our finance department has two excellent people who have come on board and understand what it’s going to take, and we have to be able to listen to them when it comes to tough budget decisions.” Stewart says when it comes down to it, the job of mayor or city councillor is all about the people who make up Campbell River. “It’s about the community, it’s not about us,” Stewart says. “It’s always been my pet peeve that everyone’s talking and no one’s listening. We need to start listening and make decisions that way. This isn’t going to be an election about personality, it’s about who do you believe can get the job done. I think my track record has proven I’m not scared to do what needs to be done.” Stewart says he’s

thought about running for mayor for a long time and came to his decision after discussing it with his wife. “It’s not a decision I’ve taken lightly, I’ve thought about it for awhile now,” Stewart says. “When you care as passionately as I do about Campbell River you get to the point where you think being a councillor is not enough to make a difference.” Stewart figures the upcoming term will be the most difficult one a council has ever faced because of the the city’s financial state, but he’s up to the task. “Finances, service delivery, core services, will all have to be scrutinized to say the least,” Stewart says. “Having said that, there’s great things on the horizon for Campbell River, whether it be the John Hart Dam project, or whether it be the new hospital project. “I think the outlook for Campbell River is really good.” Stewart joins Michel Rabu and fellow councillor Roy Grant as candidates for the mayor’s job. “I think I can do a better job,” Stewart says. “But that’s up to the electorate to decide.”

METAL THEFT Theft of metal, a serious risk to the community and emergency personnel. Each year across North America, thieves are killed or seriously injured in efforts to steal copper and other metal from electrical facilities, industrial sites and homes. These thefts also place the general public at risk by removing critical safety infrastructure which can cause fatal results kilometers from the site of the theft. In fact, destabilization of the electrical grid can cause potential fire hazards to home owners as well as businesses and can cause costly damage to electrical equipment. Operation Hands Off is a coordinated program in cooperation with many Electrical Utility companies to prevent theft by marking metal with MicroDotDNA and Forensic markers for police identification. The Canadian Association of Recycling Industries participates in this program and inspects material for identification at the recycling centers. This program involves all stakeholders and you can be part of the solution. Keep an eye out at local hydro facilities and businesses. Report suspicious activities to police at 911 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers.

Ken Forde boat ramp will close to boaters for seven months each year. Council voted Tuesday night to only operate the free, public boat launch from May 1-Sept. 30 to avoid having to deal with winter storms that leave the ramp littered with debris. “It’s unfor tunate we have to entertain some part of closure at all but with the reality of some of the conditions the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) placed upon us, the recommendation brought to us (to close Ken Forde

The city plans on spending $70,000, to be taken out of the Parks Parcel Tax, for the design of an upgrade to the boat launch. The intent is to begin construction in 2012. As part of the upgrade process, city council voted Tuesday night to include a comprehensive public consultation component. Upgrades could include: deepening the existing launch basin, improvements to the seaside bulkheads, storm water control structures, area lighting for security and early morning and late evening ramp users and public washrooms and a fish cleaning station.

Caught drunk driving, twice RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

A drunken car accident did not deter 3 8 - ye a r- o l d N a n cy Sandman from driving again while impaired shortly after. C a m p b e l l R ive r RCMP responded to a minor motor vehicle collision at the entrance to the Quadra Bay ferry terminal at 1:40 p.m. last Wednesday. Police arrived as Sandman was attempting to leave the scene in her 1999 Mazda, according to Campbell River RCMP’s Sgt. Craig Massey.

Sandman was then taken to the detachment where she refused to provide breath samples.

Hello, I am the mother of “Polar Bear Jake”, Sheryl Thompson. I am writing you to thank everybody for all the support, love and gifts. Jake died at 22 years of age. Jake graduated, then became a welder. Jake also commercial fished. Jake’s fundraising started when he was 4 years old. He helped me sell carnations for the MS Society. During my time with Jake I noticed how receptive he was when I would teach him about giving, perspective to recognize his own power and to realize that youth are a very important/ integral part of our society and that YOUTH have the power. I felt I had to give him a crash course on life. This is why I also want to say thank you because Our Community of Campbell River re-inforced what I was teaching him. The Campbell River Mirror and other newspapers covered Jake’s swims and exposed his intentions. The public at home and throughout the Province acknowledged the fact that giving gives us an awesome feeling. Jake was in misbelief at the amount of mail and thanks he recieved. He felt the joy! That was his gift from others. Jakes’ second swim was inspired when he realized why people were lining up outside of a building so early in the cold wintery day. He said “my next swim is for the Food Bank, mom.” Jake imagined himself standing there himself that day. So... thank you all. Your love,kindnes respect and acknowledgemnt to Jake, then and now, have really helped me make sense of his passing. Below are a list of just some who have created a great memory for our family. The others, please know in your heart what your love and generosity has done for me and my family.

Ride inspires people to help The annual Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock continues to roll toward a cure for childhood cancer and has a significant effect on the lives of the individuals taking part. It’s a pretty amazing feat. We say: Tour de After all, there are numerous Rock brings out important causes the public could the best in Island throw its support behind. Yet, in its 13th year, the tour continpeople ues to succeed. From communities up and down Vancouver Island laying out the welcome mat for the event to police and military officers signing up every year just for a

chance at taking part, the tour brings out the best in people. The first Tour de Rock took place in 1998, raising $325,000. Since then it has raised more than $15 million and is again approaching the $1 million mark this year. For the riders, the measure of success is not just the months of sacrifice and training for the challenge of riding 1,000 kilometres in two weeks, but the generosity displayed and the fundraising totals that grow after every visit to an Island community. The value the people involved in the tour take out of it is a ripple effect, empowering them to continue to

t

f assist others. p Black Press joined the tour this year with reporter/ t photographer Chris Bush of the Nanaimo News Bul- f letin taking part as a media rider and like many who t have completed the tour, he has been inspired to take e on a new challenges, look for a new cause so he might continue to make a difference. e It is the lure of the Tour de Rock. Months of prepa- y ration and two weeks of physical and emotional chal- a lenges add up to a desire to go on helping those who n need it most. t

Good point: Fostering Open Letter to the BC Federation of Foster Parents Association I would like to offer the thanks of Adrian Dix and the Official Opposition to you: foster parents whose life and work makes a difference to every child you look after, and to the province of British Columbia. October is Foster Family Month - an opportunity to celebrate you and your families; to celebrate the commitment you make to children and young people. It is also an opportunity to recognise that fostering is hard work. No one knows more than you that fostering can be difficult for you and your families. It takes someone who is truly dedicated to take on the troubles of other families through their children, the problems of fetal alcohol syndrome, of physical disabilities or mental challenges. I know foster parents who look after newborns and young babies; those who take in vulnerable mothers as well as their babies; those who take in difficult teens with all that entails. They take on this duty in addition to caring for their own families, working at their own jobs and fulfilling their own demands. There are more than 3,000 foster families around the province and almost 6,000 children and youth in the system. That is a significant number, but as you know, more are always welcome. Fostering in B.C. covers a wide spectrum from small families through to intense services for children and youth with special needs. Continued on A13

Rucking and mauling their way into our hearts

Alistair Taylor Out On A Limb

As the NHL season gets underway, my love for the good ol’ hockey game will once again rise to the fore. But I have to say that I’ve gained a respect for another sport in recent weeks. I’ve always been familiar with rugby. Being Scottish, my father and older brothers all played it, my dad back in the auld country and two of my brothers down the Island at a private school in Shawnigan Lake. I never played it but when I became a journalist, I was often assigned to photograph rugby games, including here in Campbell River. I never knew the rules and had little understanding of strategy but I could see that it was a tough game played without the pads so prevalent in North American sports. But the Rugby World Cup is under-

way in New Zealand where rugby is like hockey here and where a New Zealand versus Canada game is like Canada versus Norway in hockey. Still, Canada has a team in the tournament and is seen as part of a second tier of rugby nations. The United States, Romania and a few other countries are in the same grouping. Which isn’t an insult, it’s a recognition that the game has potential here and the international rugby governing body has identified it as a place where the game can be grown. And I say bring it on. I caught four games of the rugby world cup so far and they’ve been eye-openers. I watched Canada vs. France, Canada vs. Japan and Canada vs. New Zealand. I missed our one win, that being against Tonga, which was considered

a bit of an upset. I also indulged in my tribal roots by taking in the Scotland vs. England game and the seemingly inevitable disappointing loss by the Scots. Still the passion and fury with which the game is played is a sight to behold. It’s great entertainment and to watch these athletes go at it the way they do, man. Anybody who’s a hockey fan and loves good old hardnose hockey cannot be anything but a rugby fan. The game appears at times to be little more than a running brawl. Of course, it’s much more than that and after a few games I’m beginning to discern some strategy. It’s not always graceful but it’s compelling. To watch Canada battle their way, literally foot by foot towards the

Japanese touch (or goal) line, all the while getting the crap kicked out of them, was astonishing. A player grabs the ball, tucks it into his middle and runs smack into a line of opponents, turns his back to protect the ball while his teammates get into position behind him. He then hands the ball to another player who grabs it and bashes into a weaker spot in the opponents line to gain a couple of feet towards the touch line. Repeat, repeat. All the while, of course, the other team pounds, kicks, gouges and pummels the ball carrier. It’s like a goal-line stand in football but every few feet. And it doesn’t stop until the ball is torn out of your hands or you cross the touch line for a score. Oh, and you don’t wear any pads, did I Continued on A13

Taylor: Canadians should give rugby a try Continued from A12 mention that before? It’s wild and crazy and like boxing, although obviously detrimental to your health, you can’t help but respect the courage it takes to submit yourself to such punishment and find a way to survive. Of course, there are faster plays like lateral passes and runs with the ball and kicking for goals – all related to the strategy being employed by the team, of which, I haven’t entirely caught onto yet. But I’m learning and the world cup is now getting down to the serious business of the final eight. The top teams will battle it out for the title. It’s like the Olympic hockey

egy and speed. It’s also a game of great sportsmanship that has long been lost in other popular sports. Players can pound the daylights out of each other then go and have a beer together afterwards. After the Canada/ France game, the winning French players showed their respect for the Canucks by lining up in two lines at the entrance to the dressing rooms and clapped as the Canadian players passed

tournament after the round robin when all the minnows have been eliminated and the top teams brace themselves for the real tournament. Canada had hoped to finish third in its group but a tie against Japan prevented that. It would have meant more funding from the international governing body and greater exhibition matches to prepare for the next world cup and raise the profile of the sport here in Canada. That’s the goal for the world rugby body, get countries where the sport already has a following but which could be expanded. And there’s a lot to like. It’s a game built on courage and stamina, strat-

Drive Smart BC Just Because You Can See Doesn’t Mean That 2X14 You Can be Seen Few people tyee leave chev their homes without paying some attention to how they are dressed. When we use our clothing to say “Look at me!” are we really thinking about how we will appear to other road users when we are pedestrians after dark? The right choice of dress prior to your next walk in the dark could be critical! About two thirds of pedestrian fatalities occur at night. This is probably because research indicates that pedestrians can be dangerously inconspicuous to drivers after dark. A pedestrian in dark clothing at night will not be seen in time to stop if the driver is using low beam headlights and traveling faster than 60 km/h. We tend to underestimate that we are difficult to see in the dark. Visual recognition ability degrades rapidly with falling light levels and drivers need it to find and identify pedestrians. Visual guidance abilities such as walking through a darkened room remain effective, lulling us into thinking that we are more visible than we really are. Critically, we may overestimate by as much as triple the safe distance. How do you increase your chances of being seen and be identified as a pedestrian? A reflective vest is better than dark clothing, but reflective material positioned at the major joints of the body (ankles, knees, waist, shoulders, elbows and wrists) is even better. This will show “biological motion” and allow the driver to decide “human” far more quickly. The author is a retired constable with many years of traffic enforcement experience.

BC Hydro extends road closure BC Hydro has extended the road closure to Brewster Lake Road across the John Hart Dam. The road was set to open on Oct. 11, but will now open on Oct. 31. The nearby detour route around the dam is Iron River Road. BC Hydro has been upgrading the facility since Aug. 24, and removed the highest seismic risk to the John Hart Dam, according to BC Hydro spokesman Stephen Watson. “The project cost

was approximately $3 million and had an average of about 16 people working on the site,” said Waston. “A robust environmental monitoring program was in place, and no water turbidity or water quality issues were recorded for the protection of fish and fish habitat, and the domestic water supply.” BC Hydro will now test the John Hart Dam Spillway Gates to ensure all three gates are fully operational and reliable for the

upcoming storm season. BC Hydro is also creating community awareness about details of the proposed John Hart Generating Station Replacement Project, and it’s looking for feedback. As BC Hydro prepares for the regulatory and procurement processes to begin by spring 2012, it’s looking for an overall interpretive concept plan for BC Hydro’s 248-acre property. This fall, an Interpretive Plan for BC Hydro’s John

Hart property will be developed, with the goal of providing the community and stakeholders with a general overview for the site, so the finer interpretive details can be worked out with the community and stakeholders. The interpretive plan will include details about trails, river access, interpretive education options, and what may appear on the external walls (façade) of the generating station building. A questionnaire has been developed to obtain more

community feedback. The possible interpretive concepts will only be considered if there is local and regional support as well as appropriate levels of funding. BC Hydro has also made project commitments to Brewster Lake Road Bridge, Canyon View Trail configuration during and after construction, and river access. To fill out an interpretive concept questionnaire, contact steve. watson@bchydro.com or 250-755-4795.

Don’t dump old household items, reuse or recycle RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Despite the city’s massive watershed clean-up initiative people are still dumping garbage, but other free options are available. August was watershed clean-up month, and city workers and volunteers removed a total of about 476,190 kilograms of garbage out of the area. At the time, city water operator Brian McLoughlin said he hoped cleaning

up the area would deter people from dumping their garbage. H o w e v e r, L u i s a Richardson, an environmental educator working for the city, recently went on a walk through the area and found more garbage that was dumped during September. A “perfect” mattress and bed frame that looked like it had just broken during unloading were some of the items, and Richardson said they could easily have

been reused instead of dumped illegally. “Most of the stuff you could find another home for,” said Richardson. “People are obviously not aware that there’s options.” One option is The ReStore in Campbell River. It takes household items like appliances, doors, cabinets, mirrors, furniture and tools. Manager Ken Miller said that last year it diverted over 30 tonnes of metal and renewable goods from

the landfill per month. And he said the number’s probably higher this year as sales have increased by about 40 per cent. A manager must approve an item for drop off, meaning junk cannot be left there, but he’s happy to take things that can be reused. “If it’s got a slight scratch, dent, it doesn’t quite do what it’s supposed to do and it’s not a lot of work, we’ll take the time to fix it, mend

it, wash it, clean it, and get it ready for resale,” said Miller. The ReStore also educates people about where to take the things that it doesn’t, as Miller says people often don’t know about some other options. “There are places that we can further get out there that yes, they can take that,” said Miller. He often refers people to the Return-It depot. It takes counter-top appliances, household

electronics, like televisions and computers, household paint, and car batteries, among other things. Various thrift stores like Nifty Thrift and the Salvation Army take old clothing.

The City of Campbell River’s website also has links to different businesses and organizations that reuse or recycle various items. Visit http://campbellriverrecycles.ca for more information.

Know thy body October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a time when major breast cancer charities mount campaigns to promote prevention, screening, and early detection. In 2011, an estimated 23,400 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer; about a fifth of them will die from it. After skin cancer, it is the most common kind to afflict women in Canada. Becoming “breast aware” is the first step toward each of these goals. The Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation recommends that women of all ages become familiar with the feeling and contours of their breasts at different points throughout their menstrual cycle. This provides a baseline of information, so that any diseasedriven changes will stand out. It is recommended that women aged 50-69 have regular mammograms, a free breast cancer screening procedure for women in that age range in Canada.

Consult with a family doctor if you notice any of the following changes to your breasts: • • • • • •

redness discharge from the nipple a thickening or lumps in the tissue skin rashes, irritations, or scaly skin puckered skin swelling or persistent pain under the armpits or near the collarbone • changes in the size or shape of a breast or nipple

Prevention is part of being breast aware as well. The Breast Cancer Fund’s State of The Evidence 2010 reports the results of scientific studies which have shown a connection between environmental factors — such as the use of hormones and endocrine-disrupting compounds in some consumer products and pharmaceuticals — and breast cancer. Exercising regularly and eating a diet rich in whole-grain foods, fruits, and vegetables are also central to keeping the body healthy and strong on the long term.

| CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR |

Advantages of digital mammography include: • Sharp images of all area of breast tissue. • Lower doses of radiation. • Images are produced almost instantly, significantly reducing appointment time. • Equipment offers improved ergonomics and improves patient care. • Digital technology enables more mammograms per day, reducing wait times for services. • Images can be viewed at the same time by several physicians, resulting in speedier, more comprehensive consultation and diagnosis. WOMEN AGED 40 OR OLDER: 1. Have a screening mammogram every year. 2. Schedule a clinical breast exam with a health professional every year. 3. Perform a breast self-examination every month.* Women between the ages of 20 and 39: 1. Schedule a clinical breast exam with a health professional every three years. 2. Perform a breast self-examination every month.* *If any changes, such as swelling or skin irritation in the breast or underarm area, are noticed during the breast self-examination, contact your health care provider for a professional evaluation. Knowing your body and promptly addressing any unusual developments are key to early detection.

development permit this week. “The site property we’re working on is about 2.2 acres, most of that will be set aside for vehicle parking,” Dishlevoy said. “It’s set on a slope slightly raised from the highway and we thought ‘why not create a replica beach, so when drivers are going down the highway they can look up and see the noses of all the cars peeking through beach grasses.’” In keeping with the Coastline Mazda name, the entire landscape will have a beach theme that will include dune grass, driftwood and silver burweed, according to Liz Lightbourne, city planning technician. City staff feel the new dealership will contribute to the city’s goal of serving as a regional centre for North Vancouver Island and will enhance the northern end of the city. “The subject property is situated along the northern ‘gateway’ to Campbell River,” Lightbourne said. “To improve the appearance of these areas as ‘entrances’ into Campbell River, the OCP (Official Community Plan) encourages building designs which provide interesting and viable rooflines and facades as well as ensuring that the design is complimentary to the existing environment.” The building site does lie within a risk slope area and partly within the floodplain but Lightbourne said the proposed building will not be located within the floodplain area or adjacent to the risk slope. “The proposed development complies with all of the zoning bylaw development standards including lot coverage, building setbacks, height and parking,” Lightbourne said. The proposed new building is 512.9 metres squared in total floor area, 4.5 metres high and designed with aluminum paneling and glass to provide a varied facade.

At just 33 years old, the Campbell River wife and mother of three had no family history of breast cancer, and was anything but a prime candidate for the disease when she was diagnosed with Stage II breast cancer almost a year ago. Davison also doesn’t smoke, she eats well, keeps chemicals out of her home, and exercises regularly. But despite all she had going for her, cancer found her. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Davison said she felt it important to share her story. “Hopefully it touches someone’s life or gets them to the doctor,” Davison said. “Young women need to know that this is not a disease for 65-year-old women; it can happen to any one of us.” When she was living in Hong Kong about five years ago, her doctor noticed a small lump in her right breast. Davison was sent for a mammogram and an ultrasound, and the results came back normal but the doctor told her to keep and eye on it. Davison noticed changes and went back to her doctor, who said with her age and no history of breast cancer in the family she had nothing to worry about. Also, her lump was

sore, which is not typical of breast cancer but more so of a cyst. In January of 2009, she and her family moved to Campbell River and Davison started seeing doctors here. She said no one ordered a biopsy and they, like the doctor in Hong Kong, all said the same thing. “They just kept saying ‘oh you’re so young, there’s no breast cancer in your family,’ that’s all I heard for the whole five years, ‘quit worrying about it,’” Davison said. By summer 2010, the lump had grown to be quite uncomfortable for Davison, and after she was again sent home by a doctor with no biopsy, she was talking to her husband, Travis Dashkewytch, and they decided to push harder. “He said ‘no we’re going back in there because this is so uncomfortable for you,’ because you could literally see it through my shirt,” explained Davison. “I couldn’t put my arm flat down against my side because it was pushing on this big tumour, so we went in there and we were persistent, and just said ‘no, something has to get done here.’” With the tumour now the size of a golf ball, Davison was scheduled for an ultrasound. “I remember the look on the technician’s face when she saw the image on the screen. She excused herself from the room and said she was going to go speak with a doctor,” said Davison. “All I was think-

ing was ‘wow this is not good.’” She was told she needed a biopsy, and when that came back, Davison found out that it was indeed cancer, and she worried about

Enrich Someone’s Life Enrich the life of an adult learner, become a tutor. The experience will change your life! Unfortunately, one in four British Columbians cannot read this sentence. More than half of working age people in BC have difficulty reading, which makes it difficult for them to be a part of our changing economy. Be a part of the solution! The CR Literacy Association has students who need tutors. Volunteer tutors work one-on-one with adults and youth wanting to improve their English skills. Everyone is welcome! More tutors are needed for these programs. Adult literacy tutors work with adults whose skills range from learning sound-letter relationships for the first time to reading at a junior high level. The Computer Literacy program for Seniors uses peer tutors who focus on very basic computer skills. ESL tutors work with youth and adults who are learning English as their second language, (reading, writing, and pronunciation). All the above programs are free of charge, thanks to funding from the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia. Training for volunteer tutors will be held at the end of the month. If you are interested in becoming a tutor for either program phone 250 923 1275 or email Julina Bastock at info@ literacyforall.ca for more information.

and it breaks my heart to this day that they had to go through all of this.” She had a full mastectomy of her right breast on Dec. 9, 2010, which happened to be on her son

Carter’s birthday. And then laid in a hospital bed on New Year’s Eve hoping that a second surgery to remove her lymph nodes would get rid of the cancer for good. From January to the end of May she went through chemotherapy, then stayed in Victoria for six weeks having daily radiation treatments. Davison said it was a “huge strain” on the whole family emotionally, physically, and financially, but pointed out that they were lucky financially, as Dashkewytch works as an airline pilot and his company gave him the entire time off work, with full pay for the majority of it. “So my kids always had a parent here with them taking care of them,” she said. “I did not have to lift a finger through any of my treatments.” Even so, she said the ordeal cost the family about $40,000 including child care, traveling, lost wages, and out-of-pocket medication costs, among other things. Davison said she is confident the cancer is gone now and wants to move on with her life, but first she wants to generate awareness among women. “This can happen to you, in fact, one in eight women will have some type of breast cancer in their life time,” said Davison. “Be aware of your own body and make sure you do self breast exams. Be your own advocate, and if you find a lump then ask your doctor to take the next steps, whether they feel you fall into normal breast cancer screening criteria or not.”

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

ATHLETICS

The 2011-12 school year is well under way and I am happy to report that we have had an exemplary start to the school year. I would like to thank the staff and students of Carihi for their hard work in welcoming our new students and staff, myself included, and continuing to embrace the culture of acceptance of which we are so proud. We have many events and opportunities for our students to showcase their talent and we encourage all students to take part, whether it be an extra-curricular sports program, yearbook, student leadership, music, drama, or just to watch one of our Thursday Performances in the Multi-Purpose Room. We have an outstanding staff who truly bring their energy and passions to work every day to bring these opportunities to life for students. We are also well under way with regards to academics. I encourage parents to be in regular contact with teachers with regards to their child’s progress and to stay connected to attendance patterns. Please let us know if your child will be absent and I encourage parents to check Parent Connect online to get attendance updates. Parental involvement in their child’s education significantly improves achievement at school. Finally, we are always available to assist you with any concerns regarding your students’ education. Please contact me should you have any questions or concerns during the course of the year. Sincerely, Mr. S. Toal, Principal

STUDENT PROGRESS

Term 1 is well underway and we encourage parents to contact their child’s teacher to get an update on how well they are progressing through the course. As we are a semestered school, many of our courses run at a challenging pace for students and it is important that students and parents receive regular feedback from their teachers to help students overcome any obstacles to their success. While current job action may limit formal reports going to parents, our teachers are more than happy to discuss the progress of your child with you.

ATTENDANCE

Regular attendance in classes is crucial to student success. While we understand that there are times that students must be out of school – doctor’s appointments, illness, family emergencies – it is our expectation that students attend every class, every day. Please inform us by calling our attendance line, 250 286-4857 to excuse your child from school when he or she will be away. Parents can check their child’s attendance “live” on Parent Connect. Please contact us if you are unable to access Parent Connect.

CHANGES TO THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS FOR 2011-2012

This fall, the Ministry of Education announced changes to the Provincial Scholarship program. In the past, students were awarded scholarships based on their results in provincially examinable Grade 12 courses. This year, there will be no optional Grade 12 Provincial Exams, with the only required examination in English 12 (or Communications 12). As such, $1000 Scholarships will now be awarded based on the five required Provincial Exams.

IAP LIFE STUDENT ACCIDENT INSURANCE

The Music, Media, Art and Drama programs are seeking parent volunteers to help with various activities throughout the school year: this might entail helping with costumes and props, field trips, setting up for performances, helping install exhibitions.... each program has different needs from parent volunteers. If you have a student that participates in any of the programs listed and you would like to be involved in supporting these programs please contact the following teachers to discuss ways that you can help out: Music = Jim Vining; Media = Joe Shields, Art = Leanne Longeway & Drama = Christine Knight Preparations for this year’s Graduation celebrations are well under way. We are proud to announce this year’s Graduation Executive: Keely Anderson, Lisa Bavis, Cody Despins, Danielle Goulet, Candace Hills, Chloe Howarth, Trinity Jerierski, Catalina Kennedy-Burgoyne, Kristopher Liesch, Talia Stevens, Sydney Sullivan, Kat Zettler. This hardworking group of students meet every Monday morning at 7:30 under the direction of Mrs. Komaltycki and Ms. Lloyd.

While the intent of the Ministry of Education is to provide more students with Scholarship money, we appreciate that this change might cause some concern for current Grade 12 students.

On October 19th the Music, Media, Art and Drama programs (MMAD) will be hosting the first annual "OCTOBER MMADness EVENT". The event takes place this October 19th from 6:30 - 8:30 in Carihi’s Multi-Purpose Room. Thank you for your support!

of nasty bacteria from accumulating. ■ Make sure you cook it long enough. Cooking timetables for turkeys will tell you how long to cook your bird, based on weight. Test the turkey with a meat thermometer inserted into the middle of the stuffing or into the thigh without touching the bone. The thermometer must register 85°C (185°F) for the turkey to be cooked. No meat thermometer? Test for doneness by moving the drumstick up and down. It should move easily in the joint if it’s cooked. ■ Never partially cook a turkey one day and continue cooking it the next day. This is one of the major causes of food poisoning, as bacteria can quickly multiply. ■ Never pre-stuff a turkey the day before it is roasted. It takes too long to heat the centre of the chilled dressing in order to ensure that any bacteria are destroyed, and it may result in over-cooking the meat. ■ Because of the increased risk of food poisoning associated with stuffed turkeys, many people choose to cook the stuffing separately. However, if you like to cook your turkey stuffed, make sure to stuff it just before you put it in the oven and remove all of the stuffing as soon as the turkey is fully cooked. ■ Never leave a cooked turkey on the kitchen table or counter after carving. It should be placed either in the oven to keep it hot or in the refrigerator Cooked turkey can be refrigerated for three or four days or frozen for up to four months. Basic rules of food handling ■ Keep hands, utensils and work areas clean and avoid transfer of bacteria from one food to another. ■ Thoroughly clean all surfaces that come in contact with raw meat or poultry to prevent the contamination of cooked or other readyto-eat foods. ■ Cool leftover foods quickly to reduce the risk of bacterial growth.

said Nadon. “I’m looking for ways to strengthen opportunities for students while meeting the needs of the community.” The ERC opened its doors in September of 2009 and is available to help all employers who are seeking knowledgeable and eager staff. By assisting students in gaining meaning-

to further develop our resources for employers within the communities we serve,” Nadon said. “I welcome community involvement in making this service the best it can be.” The survey began on Sept. 21 in Courtenay and Sept. 23 in Campbell River, and will end Oct. 21. The purpose of the

Wolves dominant Dogs in pre-season matchups T h e T i m b e rl i n e Wolvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pre-season wrapped up this past Saturday with a thorough trouncing of the defending Tier 2 Champions Frank Hurt Hornets 61-12. The Wolves have outscored opponents 155 to 32 in three exhibition games against Mainland Division Tier 2 opponents. â&#x20AC;&#x153; O u r fo c u s n ow retur ns to our traditional Vancouver Island opponents for the next five weeks, as we need to collect points to make a playoff run,â&#x20AC;? said Wolves Head Coach Martin Jaunzemis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We start next Saturday with zero points in the standings and one hiccup in the regular season can change things in a hurry. Our traditional Island opponents Vanier and Belmont are going to be gunning for us, we know that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also see a team in Sooke, EJ Milne that is quietly sneaking up on people and gave us

a scare taking us to a Texas Shootout in OT last year.â&#x20AC;? The Wolves are multi dimensional in 2011. The passing game is as good or better compared to the last two years, the running game could be even better. The Wolves led by QB Dylan Tucker are known for their aerial show the last few years, have thrown the ball 60 times with 41 completions for 604 yards and 6 TDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The ground game is the hidden gem that nobody has quite realized yet, racking up 721 yards and 14 TDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the first three games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far it has not been one player, Mike Weston starts the game, Hunter McKay follows up, and behind them Chris Lund is raring to go, we always have a fresh body at tailback and our slots Rob Vlaj and Johnny Evenson also contribute big in the ground game,â&#x20AC;? said the head coach. Look for Vlaj, Even-

son, Greg Perry and Mitch Nemeth to put on the traditional air show in coming weeks. D e f e n s ive l y, t h e Wolves have been very tough for opponents to score on. Defensive Coach Steve Koehler has had the defence playing on the south side of the line of

scrimmage almost all of the pre-season. The result is a Tier 2 league leading average of only 10 points allowed per game in the preseason. Look for D-line newcomers Eric Wright, David Young, and Carsen Black to get together with veteran Cody Gent and

Linebackers Duncan Howard and James Danylchuk to decimate opponents in the coming weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach Koehler has lots of fresh bodies on defence for the first time I can remember. We have not even mentioned the O-line yet, James Danychuk, Andrew Weinstein,

B l a ke H e e m s ke rk , Justin Evenson, and Louis Patterson, with the exception of James have all been playing one-way for the most part. They are fresh every time we step on the field. These guys finished the preseason with a great game, I hope to seen it get even better as

we move along,â&#x20AC;? said Jaunzemis. The Wolves will be Home for the next three weeks against Gulf Islands, GP Vanier and Belmont before finishing the regular season against Mark Isfield and then EJ Milne. Home Games start at 1:25 p.m Saturdays at Timberline.

Tyees split matches on weekend

The KLP Construction Peewee A Tyees played two games at Ro d B r i n d â&#x20AC;&#x2122; A m o u r arena this past weekend with mixed

results. They played an exhibition game on Saturday against Oceanside. The Tyees had three players back in

the line-up after being injured. Justin Kennelly, Will McLean and Mitchell Rogers laced them up for the Tyees and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look

out of place at all. Kennelly and Rogers each scored in their return, while McLean continued to work hard at both ends of the ice.

Oceanside scored part way through the first period but Tyler Dickson replied for the Tyees to level the score at 1 at the end of the

first period. The Tyees had a bit of a slow start, possibly due to the team bottle drive held earlier in the day. Continued on A34

FULL PROCESS

Continued from A10 The Tyees were starting to get their legs under them as they executed a long breakout play perfectly in the middle of the second with D-to-D passes from Liam Rivett to Doug Campbell resulting in a break-away by Kennelly. Kennelly cut in from right to left and put the puck in the top corner on the shortside for the goal of the night. The Tyees never looked back as goals were added by Olivia Knowles, Rogers and Dickson with his second of the night. Final score 5-1 for the Tyees. Both Ethan Ouellette and Nick Ordano played very well in goal, with Ordano making the play of the game as he saved a point-blank shot at a critical moment in the game. Sunday’s afternoon game was a tiering game against Cowichan Valley. Tyees team officials learned that one of the Cowichan players has been on a scoring roll recently. Head coach Marc Ouellette seemed to play his top centre, Todd Campbell, against this player whenever possible. The strategy was working until both teams started taking penalties which disrupted the flow of the game and caused coaches to juggle their lineups. The Tyees received solid goaltending from Ethan Ouellette again, and very good effort through-out the game from all players. The play of the game for the Tyees was the great passing play from the line of Damian Rennie, Rogers and Kennelly who worked well together to score the first goal. The teams traded some chances after that but the Tyees enjoyed a bit of puck-luck. They took a 3-2 lead into the third period and added an early goal to make it 4-2 but Cowichan replied quickly to bring it level with about 16 minutes to go. With just over a minute left, Cowichan took advantage of a defensive zone lapse in coverage to score the go ahead goal and went on to win 5-4. The Tyees are now off to Port Alberni to play in their Thanksgiving weekend tournament.
