Alarm raised over ‘slate politics’ KRISTEN DOUGLAS CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

Council candidate Darryn Striga is concerned Campbell River will suffer under totalitarian rule if a slate of candidates from Fusion Campbell River is elected to city council. Striga, a first-time candidate, worries about keeping a true democracy intact if candidates from just one group are elected. “When you elect a slate, you are not truly electing seven officials, you are essentially only electing one unified mind, or one official and six loyalists,” Striga says. “When a mayor has a council that is comprised of only his closest allies, he has carte blanche to act in any manner he deems fit with no accountability to be expected from the councillors.” Striga says there is a good reason a slate has never run for council in Campbell River’s history and believes what Fusion founder Walter Jakeway and his group is doing is cause for concern. “There is a term already in Continued on A3

B.C. Jobs Plan ignores the Island, Trevena says RENÉE ANDOR CAMPBELL RIVER MIRROR

The B.C. Jobs Plan misses the North Island completely, according to North Island MLA Claire Trevena.

Premier Christy Clark unveiled the plan last week, and although Trevena said the idea to create the plan was good, the plan itself was a let down for this area of the province. “Canada may start in B.C., but

the first land mass you get to is Vancouver Island and the Liberal Job Plan seems to ignore Vancouver Island, which is very troubling if this is their approach for economic development, that a large section of the province

Slate: Group says there’s nothing to fear Continued from A1 wide circulation that describes a government led by one person and surrounded by cronies and that is totalitarianism. I do not and would not accuse Walter of being an autocrat – such a remark would be beyond ignorant – but the government he proposes to form would be the municipal equivalent.” Jakeway says because Fusion is not a political party, which he points out often govern under majorities in Canada and B.C., there is room for members, should they form council, to have healthy discussions and debates. “There are no restrictions on what people can say, this is not a party like the Liberals and NDP which have solidarity,” Jakeway says. “This is not a party – we do not have solidarity. We just have 10 basic principles that we all agree on.” Jakeway also points out that a group has a better chance of effecting change than independent candidates. “When you run atlarge you can’t promise to deliver because you don’t know who else is going to run,” Jakeway says. “When you have people thinking the same way, you can stick together.” Striga says he gives credit to Jakeway and the rest of Fusion for having the courage to do what they feel is right, but insists single-party governments are bad for the people and the region. “I understand Walter’s goals, and it speaks volumes to the current state of Campbell

River that a group of people would be driven to such desperation to finally form a slate in an effort to allay the town’s woes, but if a slate were to be successful it would inherently mean the end of diversity among city councillors,” Striga says. “It would mean a lack of representation for people who are not just like Mayor Walter Jakeway and his six closest friends. Such an administration puts too much power in too few hands, and I cannot sit idly by without speaking out when I feel strongly about something that is not in our town’s best interest.” Jakeway says Striga is jumping to conclusions about Fusion and potential candidates. “He shouldn’t be forming an opinion until he knows the facts or even who the people on the slate will be,” Jakeway says. Striga allows it’s possible there would be nothing to worry about should Fusion’s candidates get elected, but he has his doubts. “History shows us that when a government is ruled by yesmen, any government employees willing to say ‘no’ often find themselves in search of new jobs,” Striga says. “There is also no democratic process that we can use to undo the mistake of electing such an administration for three more years, after which any damage may be irreversible.” This year’s municipal election takes place Sat., Nov. 19.

Jobs: Focus on raw resource exports Continued from A1 10 years. However, Trevena said these numbers are hard to quantify. “Having targets is very important but you’ve got to make sure that you have the jobs,” explained Trevena. “Are we going to see jobs created in Campbell River where we need jobs?” The plan outlines the expansion of the mining industry, boosting B.C.’s exports, and losing ‘red tape’ making it easier for businesses to invest here, among other things. But, Trevena pointed out that the plan focuses on expanding raw

resources exports, like logs, too much. “There is no value added in this jobs plan and that is what is very damaging for the North Island,” she said. “Having value added is what makes a community.” The North Island has only one specialty mill; no large sawmill or pulp mill. Trevena also said the plan misses new possibilities for job creation in this area, like investing in tidal power, or new ways to expand the aquaculture industry. The B.C. Jobs Plan website states that by 2020 there will be over one million job openings, and 75 per cent

of those jobs will require post-secondary education and training. Although Trevena said that it’s positive that Clark wants to increase the number of international students by 50 per cent over four years, there is no mention of making education more affordable for people on the North Island or the rest of the province. “The cost of education, it’s been spiraling out of control really,” said Trevena. “It’s all very well to attract students from abroad but this isn’t the way that you actually grow your skilled workforce for your communities.

“We’ve got to make sure that there are B.C. people who can fill B.C. jobs.” The plan also sets out investments in a redevelopment project in Prince Rupert and a road and rail infrastructure project in Deltaport, but Trevena pointed out that there was no investment on Vancouver Island. “What we ended up with is very broad brush strokes really missing the mark, not looking at the specifics of what can work for communities,” said Trevena. “We will start Canada at Vancouver and forget the Island is what we’ve seen.”

C a m p b e l l R ive r Search and Rescue had a busy weekend, flying out to two rescues. First, they were notified of a missing worker – who when found, didn’t realize he was ‘missing’ – in the Phillips Arm area by Sayward RCMP on Friday evening. The man had gone up to Phillips Lake (about 50 kilometres from Campbell River) where he worked raising broodstock fish on Friday afternoon. He was due to check in with his employer that evening via GPS transmitter, but the transmission was not received. Another employee went up the remote road to Phillips Lake and discovered that it was washed out due to a mudslide. Authorities were alerted at about 11 p.m. that evening.

C a m p b e l l R ive r Search and Rescue (CRSAR) manager Tyler Abbott said weather and light conditions stopped rescuers from going in that night, as the area is only accessible by water or air and it was windy. At first light Saturday, CRSAR members went out in a helicopter and quickly located the man at the cabin. When they reached the man, Abbott said he was very surprised to see them. “He wasn’t aware that the road had washed out overnight,” said Abbott, adding that the man had thought the check-in transmission had gone through, but the equipment had failed. The man was brought out of the area safe and sound via helicopter. And CRSAR also helped out the Comox Valley Ground Search and Rescue (CVGSAR) team with a rescue in the Mt. Albert Edward area in the early hours of Sunday morning. A 26-year-old Victoria man and his girlfriend were camping at Circlet Lake on Friday night, with plans to summit Mt. Albert Edward on Saturday. According to a CVGSAR news release, the man “was poorly pre-

pared for the conditions and was unfamiliar with the difficulty of traveling in alpine terrain.” After a debate with his girlfriend about climbing the mountain in poor weather conditions, he set off to do it alone, while she stayed at Circlet Lake. When he didn’t return to camp by 9 p.m. authorities were notified. CRSAR sent out three members to help, as many CVGSAR members were involved in skills training that weekend. The man’s girlfriend was extracted a n d i n t e r v i ewe d promptly, but it took more time to find him. “ We a t h e r p r e vented helicopter access,” said Abbott, adding that as soon a s t h e we a t h e r cleared enough rescuers went up in a helicopter, as well as on foot. Snow was falling on some of the mountainous terrain, which worried searchers as they thought the man may have been suffering from hypothermia. By 1 p.m. on Sunday, he was spotted by helicopter on a ridge about 5200 feet above Circlet

Power outages keep Hydro busy Rain and wind kept BC Hydro crews busy early this week. Heavy winds caused 8,700 BC Hydro customers in the Campbell River area to lose power on Monday. Stephen Watson, spokesperson for BC Hydro, says about 6,500 had their power restored throughout the day and approximately 2,200 customers went through the night without power. Watson said Tuesday, after the Mirror went to press, that power should be restored to all customers by the end of the day.

“The sheer number of outages and access issues due to high winds were major challenges for BC Hydro crews to safely re-energize to customers,” Watson said. “The three primary pockets out today (Tuesday) are the Sayward area, a large section of Quadra, and Cortes Island.” Hydro also had to deal with heavy rain last week. Weekend rain storms dropped significant rainfall and increased Lower Campbell Reservoir levels to near full. However, as of Tuesday morning

the reservoir sat at 219.65 metres and as the week wears on, will slowly decline through to next week, Watson said. “BC Hydro will hold the 80 m3/s flow down the (Elk Falls) canyon through Oct.7 to control the reservoir levels and to bring them down to more seasonal levels,” Watson said. “BC Hydro continues its advisory for the public to stay away from the Campbell River through Oct. 7.” On that date, BC Hydro plans to reduce the spill down the canyon to normal base flow, which will

The City of Campbell River provides the following clarification regarding costs and savings associated with the green roof at City Hall. • The green roof project originated because City Hall was due for a roof replacement. • The City sought opportunities for external funding to cover the costs of upgrading the roof, and by installing a green roof, secured federal gas tax money to fund the entire project. (Federal gas tax money is earmarked for energy retrofits and other environmental sustainability projects.) • Because the roof was 100 per cent funded by the federal gas tax, no local property taxes were used to pay for this upgrade. The results of green roof and other energy savings measures at City Hall have been reported in two ways: • Winter energy costs at City Hall (November to March) have dropped by 15 per cent – a seasonal savings of $4,240 and 53,000 kWh. • Annual energy consumption at City Hall in 2011 is forecast to drop by 25 per cent over 2007 rates –saving approximately $15,000 per year and 182,000 kWh. This is the combined result of heating control and lighting upgrades and reduced heating and cooling requirements thanks to the green roof’s extra insulation. • Both calculations use 2011 electricity rates. The payback? • The immediate gain of a new roof funded by a federal government grant rather than local property taxation. • The savings on energy bills because local taxation covers the costs of City facilities and operations. • The extended life of the green roof. The green roof is expected to last twice as long as a conventional roof, all the while saving money by reducing energy use. • And the environmental benefits through energy conservation, water filtration and greenhouse gas emission reduction. The green roof cost $489,000 and was 100 per cent funded through Federal Gas Tax funding. Questions about the green roof? Interested in a tour?

tegic meeting, city council supported the complete closure of Ken Forde from October to the end of April. “Council approved a resolution to operate and maintain Ken Forde from the beginning of May to the end of September but Big Rock (the city’s other free public launch) and Discovery Harbour will remain open year-round,” said Ross Milnthorp, the city’s manager of parks, recreation and culture. “However, no decision is official until council approves it at the next council meeting.” The boat ramp is located south of Willow Point across from Rona, at the end of a stretch of open beach, in the zone of greatest natural deposition of debris and settlement, according to a study of the city’s foreshore. “The Marine Foreshore Habitat Assessment determined that the area of shoreline at

Ken Forde boat launch experiences the largest waves in the entire 16 kilometre study area, indicating that this area is particularly unsuitable for a boat ramp structure,” Milnthorp said. Nevertheless, the city has no plans to permanently close Ken Forde unless discussions with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to allow the city to stockpile materials fall through. Currently the city is not allowed to clear sediment from the boat launch and stockpile it until it’s ready to be relocated. However, Milnthorp said DFO seems willing to reconsider that stipulation.

“If we are able to negotiate temporary sediment storage into the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Ken Forde boat ramp could be cleared on an as needed basis during the recommended annual opening period,” Milnthorp said. “If we are not able to negotiate temporary sediment storage into the MOU, (city) staff will be recommending that we close Ken Forde boat launch permanently. The ability to stockpile material is critical to maintaining and operating the boat ramp.” Another aspect of the memorandum with DFO is the city’s ability to have a preliminary schedule to dictate where material from both Ken Forde and Big Rock boat ramps will be going each year. “The Memorandum of Understanding is built on including a list of sites that we’re going to restore and when and where we’re going to do that,” Milnthorp said. “Having said that, that schedule of priority sites would be flexible based on weather events during the winter. “ E s s e n t i a l ly, i t ’s really all about protecting the foreshore and about making sure the foreshore is here to enhance the quality

of life for generations into the future.” Fortunately, despite the nuisance to boaters trying to access the boat ramp, the material is perfect for renourishing badly eroded sections of beach front. This summer, the sediment cleared from Ken Forde was spread along the beach in an area just north of Rotary Park. Milnthorp said DFO supports the city’s foreshore management plan and initial talks surrounding a Memorandum of Understanding have been very encouraging. “The Department of Fisheries and Oceans is pleased to see the City of Campbell River taking a proactive approach,” Milnthorp said. Meanwhile, the city is working on a design process for the upgrade of the Big Rock boat launch, located just north of Willow Point. Designs will cost the city $70,000 which will come out of the Parks Parcel Tax. The city intends to begin work on the boat launch in 2012, pending council approval of funding for the construction. The Big Rock boat ramp basin actually collects more material than Ken Forde does but it is stored in an area that does not block access to the breakwater.

Important jobs ensuring student success are up for grabs. It’s almost time to submit nominations for school board trustee positions. Nominations are open from 9 a.m. on Oct. 4 to 4 p.m. on Oct. 14. Five positions are open for the Greater Campbell River area, one for the Sayward Valley, and one for Quadra Island. Voting will take place on Nov. 19 along with the rest of the municipal election voting. School District secretary-treasurer Peter Neale said previous elections have had a healthy turn out of nominees. “Traditionally, we have had more candidates than positions for trustees, so it’s usually a fairly healthy competitive process, particularly for those who are very passionate about it and feel they could add some real value to their role as trustee,” said Neale, adding that he hopes this year will be the same. According to Neale, the role of trustee is almost like a “community consultant,” in that responsibilities include developing

policy for the school district, ensuring that staff are accountable for their positions and responsibilities, ensuring budgets are on track, and ensuring that the school district is

PUBLISHER: Zena Williams publisher@campbellrivermirror.com

EDITOR: Alistair Taylor editor@campbellrivermirror.com

Our View

Elections need real leadership What started as a trickle will quickly become a flood of candidate declarations for Nov. 19’s civic elections. We’ll give readers the full scoop on who is seeking to represent you once We say: Run for nominations close, but to those who’ve the benefit of the already made their intentions clear, and to those still mulling the possibilcommunity, not ity of running for public office, we’ve got a few words of encouragement yourself and advice. Come with a thick skin, an open mind – open ears are crucial, too – and ideas. What we needs whether it’s at

the regional district, city or school board, is leadership. We’re looking for people who can get things done. We’re looking for people who realize they can’t make everyone happy, and they can’t study an issue to death. We’re looking for people who are bold – who will learn, listen, and then make decisions accordingly. Representing your community is a big commitment – be prepared to spend long hours around the council table, in committee meetings and at public events. If you’re thinking of running, you should already be attending those.

Remember, this community has a complicated menu of issues – ranging from a variety of public and private developments, water, sewage, roads, taxes and more – and you’ve got to understand them. You’ve also got to have ideas to address them. If elected, what you do in the coming years will have a lasting impact on our community. Don’t run to inflate your ego, fill your time, pimp a particular cause, or for the paycheque. Do it because this is your community and you want to help it grow for the benefit of everyone in it. – Black Press

Good point: Shame! I am outraged and saddened by the report of the “slaughter” of so many of our marine mammals. DFO continue to play God with disastrous results. The cod fishery back east, the overfishing of herring stocks, the continual depletion of salmon species and steelhead populations around B.C. are but a few examples of the ongoing mismanagement and disregard for the natural marine eco system. As for the salmon farming association, they continue to make excuses for their screw-ups and dream up explanations that insults any form of human intelligence. To suggest that seals are a danger to humans is laughable. When did we ever read about a seal attack on a human? The slaughter of these marine mammals may lack the public outrage that erupted with the slaughter of sled dogs at Whistler but they are not dissimilar. The exception is that this “slaughter” was sanctioned by an inept government department. Open pen fish farming continues to impact negatively on the natural marine eco system-having yet to resolve the high concentrations of sea lice attracted to the salmon pens, the pollution created by the chemicals used to attempt to control them, the degradation of the sea bed from fish waste and morts, the ongoing threat of farmed fish diseases transmitting to wild salmon stocks, along with the escapements of farmed salmon, all of which are unresolved,and now the slaughter of marine mammals, all to protect the investment and profits of the open pen fish farming. Shame! Shame! Shame! Tony Pinder

B.C. Jobs Plan bumps into reality

Tom Fletcher B.C. Views

Premier Christy Clark’s “B.C. Jobs Plan” took some hits as she was finishing her week-long publicity tour to roll it out. The serious damage wasn’t from her political opponents on the left and right. The body blows came from Europe, the United States and China, where the storm clouds of a second recession continued to gather. As world leaders offered up a chorus of warning about debt and falling consumer demand, commodity markets for metals, coal and petroleum tumbled along with stocks. One of the few firm targets Clark offered was that eight new mines should be up and running in B.C. by 2015, with expansions or upgrades

to nine more existing mines. That is the total arrived at after detailed meetings with the industry. But if China’s factories slow down because fewer Americans and Europeans buy their goods, those projects can fade as quickly as the price of copper. Total provincial spending for the B.C. jobs plan comes out around $300 million. The big-ticket items were contributions to port and rail facilities at Prince Rupert and Tsawwassen. Another $24 million goes to staff up natural resource permit offices, which are backlogged after amalgamation of various ministry functions. NDP leader Adrian Dix leapt on that announcement, saying it proves

that the B.C. Liberals starved the regional offices. He’s right on that. For example, the resource ministry’s regional director for Skeena told the Bulkley-Nechako regional district board this spring that he has 30 per cent less staff than five years ago. Some of that is a result of ending duplication of forest, energy and other ministries, but by this spring there were 65 independent power projects waiting for approval in Skeena alone. Of course the NDP would fix that backlog by killing off the projects, and presumably break up the natural resources ministry again, to ramp up their beloved government jobs. The NDP also jumped on B.C.

Liberal MLA John Les for going to high-unemployment Nanaimo and suggesting people should look north where jobs are going begging. Construction company Ledcor had job fairs in Prince George and Chetwynd in early September, looking for hundreds of truck drivers, heavy equipment operators, drillers, blasters, mechanics, surveyors and labourers for the Willow Creek coal mine in Tumbler Ridge. Another job fair was held in Fort St. James around the same time, looking for equipment operators for the Mount Milligan copper-gold mine. I had a chat a couple of weeks ago with a grader operator in Dawson Continued on A11

Hit and run on Alder Street A hit and run collision was reported on Alder Street near 7th Avenue at 1:55 a.m. on Wed. Sept. 21. A witness described how a pick-up had fled the scene after colliding with a parked vehicle. The suspect vehicle is described as a red Chevrolet pick-up with two dirt bikes in the box. Physical evidence left at the scene confirms that the pick-up has significant damage

Items stolen from vehicle A vehicle was broken into in the 700 block of Robron Road overnight between Thurs. Sept

22 and Fri. Sept. 23. The suspect had gained entry by breaking the vent window and stole a Pentax camera, a wallet, and some cash. “Police remind the public to remove valuables from vehicles when they are unoccupied,” said Sgt. Craig Massey with the Campbell River RCMP in a news release.

Big theft Campbell River RCMP received

a report of a residential break and enter in the 2700 block of Rainbow Road at 12:30 p.m. on Thurs. Sept. 22. Investigators confirmed that entry was gained by forcing open a door.

Campbell River RCMP received a report of a hit and run on Duncan Bay Main at 12:45 p.m. on Fri. Sept. 23. A local resident had parked his white Ford Explorer while he walked his dog, and when he returned to his vehicle he saw that it had been struck and pushed over about five feet. The paint transfer suggests the suspect vehicle is blue.

leader John Cummins trashed the Prince Rupert port announcement as a payoff to local aboriginal people for a potash facility. “The usual Liberal policy of giving natives a veto on new projects has got to end,” Cummins said, demonstrating once again that he

understands nothing about the evolution of this issue in the past 20 years. In summary, Clark’s jobs plan is to continue Gordon Campbell’s Pacific gateway strategy. The opposition parties are reheating decades-old failed options they hope will

smell better than a stale three-term government. And B.C. is, as always, at the mercy of world events. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress. ca

Mushroom hunters coming to Quadra Along with gardeners and firefighters, another group of people are hoping for rain – to bring out the mushrooms by the end of the month. This Friday, more than twenty members of the South Vancouver Island Mycological Society (SVIMS) will arrive

on Quadra to explore the wide array of wild mushrooms found in our Island forests. Both novice and experienced mushroom hunters are invited to join Heriot Bay Inn and their guests for the 2011 Quadra Mushroom Foray. Friday evening at 7:30 p.m., Dr. Shannon

Berch will present an informative and entertaining talk on “Edible, Poisonous and Other Intriguing Mushrooms of Quadra Island.” Next morning, participants will collect the widest possible variety of fungi to bring back to the hotel for identification by

Dr. Berch, and Jim Jones, founder of the Bamfield Mushroom Festival. On Sunday morning, everyone gathers in the Bayview Room to review the catch. Cost for the weekend is $20 and includes the Friday evening presentation, the Saturday field trip, and Sunday morning

identification session. The Friday session

is required for participation in the Saturday field trip. The cost without the field trip is $15. To register, and for more information, contact the Heriot Bay Inn at (250) 285 3322. Check out the SVIMS website at www.svims.ca

Members of the Mycological Society will host an informative mushroom event this weekend.

Student Amanda Annett is on the trip of a lifetime – she is living in Ecuador while attending school on a Rotary Youth Exchange. The Youth Exchange is a yearlong exchange program, where a student in Grade 10, 11 or 12 goes and lives with a family in a different country, attends school, is immersed in a different language, and gets the rare gift of truly learning and appreciating a different culture. “When I first heard about this program the main thing that stopped me was the terrifying, yearlong commitment,” Annett says. “But I want to urge families and young people to search past those words and find out what Rotary Youth

You don’t need to make a commitment to the program to find out more about it, if you have any questions or curiosities, simply attend the information sessions. If perhaps being a Rotary Youth

Violinist Calvin Dyck and a small chamber orchestra will present a concert on Oct. 2 in Black Creek to raise money for East Africa famine relief. Calvin, who is the concertmaster of the Vancouver Island Symphony, has perfor med around the world in Cuba, Ukraine, France, Yukon, Mexico and China. More recently played in the orchestra for the opening ceremonies of the Vancouver Winter Olympics. He will be joined by a small orchestra including some of his advanced students to present the famous Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, a series of four concertos which aptly describe Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter by imitating the sounds of nature such as bird calls, storms, ice, rain, and even a barking dog. Antonio Vivaldi known as the “red priest” for his shocking head of hair; spent a good part of his career working for a girls orphanage in Vienna known as the Ospedale della Pietà. Part of his responsibilities included writing two concerti a month in return for two gold ducats – worth about $45 in today’s money. Also on the program, the ensemble will perform Air on the G String by J. S. Bach, Gabriel’s Oboe from the movie The Mission, Canticle for an

Angel”by Vancouver composer Michael Conway Baker, and other favourites. Proceeds from the concert will be funnelled to the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) which has a goal of raising one million to provide material aid to victims of the worst drought and famine in East Africa in 20 years. MCC has set up “food for work” programs in which 92 sand dams are being built to provide a longer term solution to the lack of water. The food

meets immediate needs even as workers are creating water retention systems that should help them in the future. Funds collected at the concert will be doubled by the Canadian government. The concert will be held on Oct. 2 at 2:30 pm at the Black Creek United Mennonite Church. Admission is $15 at the door.

They are a nice mix of different elements – speed, hustle, and hands.” The trio combined for five of the nine goals. The Tyees continue tiering round play with a pair of home games this weekend.

They will develop strategies to promote resiliency and positive change. “Being confronted with a youth’s substance use is very scary for most parents,” said Velma Mockett, JHSNI Substance Use Counsellor and one of the group facilitators. “We hope to help caregivers and parents feel more confident in their ability to address this concern. More understanding and some practical

strategies can go a long way.” JHSNI first offered PAYS in FebruaryMarch 2011. Feedback from parents and caregivers was positive, with post-group surveys reporting an overall increase in self-care, a better understanding of youth substance use, and more confidence in connecting with community-based supports.

Use it or lose it! ElderCollege keeps the brain stimulated Research into brain function in the older adult has verified what common sense tells us. Use it or lose it! Keeping your brain stimulated by challenging it with new ideas and concepts will help you maintain your level of mental function. ElderCollege courses at North Island College in Campbell River provide a great way to exercise your brain and have fun at the same time. There are a variety of courses being offered starting this month with something of interest for every taste. Most of the courses run for six weeks and are an hour and a half in length. Wanting to explore your inner artist? Introduction to Wood Carving will provide you with the basic skills to create your own unique work of art. Bear-making also promises to be lots of fun and, at the end of the course, the student will have their own unique teddy bear to either keep or give as a gift. If you are planning to travel or would simply like to become more proficient in another langua g e, the language courses offered by ElderCollege provide a good introduction. Courses offered this session include French, Spanish, and Japanese, all at a basic level. And, if you want to learn more about other parts of the world, the Travelogues series is an ideal choice. A different destination is highlighted each week so you can experience the joy of travel without leaving your chair. Changing your diet to improve your health is important at any age but it is particularly important for the aging adult. Fat Simplified and The Healing Cook are two courses that will help you to make more informed choices about what you eat. Having the opportunity to express your own opinion and hear what others think about current events is very g ratifying. To join a discussion about issues affecting our society consider signing up for Current Af fairs Discussion Group. In the Film Discussion Group, participants view a thoughtprovoking film and

discuss it afterwards. Ideas and concepts explored last spring in the Introduction to the Middle East course will be discussed in more detail this time around.

Computers for Beginners will get you started on your journey to computer literacy. Digital media will take you even further by showing you how to handle all those pho-

tographs that you’ve taken with your digital camera. Other courses include Introduction to Chan Meditation, World Religions and Public Speaking. One-day Saturday

workshops include Introduction to Palmistry and “Stop the Presses” which will explain the ins and outs of preparing press releases. To enroll in classes or work-

shops you must first become a member of ElderCollege. The membership fee of $10 is paid once per academic year and is open to any person over 50 years of age.
