Duncan man and his 12-year-old daughter are dead following a collision yesterday on Highway 19 near the Alberni cutoff that also killed a Nanaimo man. Michael David Anderson, 39, and Marissa Jade Bridge, 12, of Comox, were pronounced dead at the scene. According to a release from the Oceanside RCMP, they were the occupants of a Green Nissan Path¿nder that was northbound on Highway 19 near Exit 51 Oct. 16, shortly before 4:30 p.m. Police say the Path¿nder left the highway, travelled across the grass median and into the southbound lanes where it struck a southbound blue Ford pick-up truck head-on. The driver of the Ford pick-up was taken to Nanaimo Regional Hospital by the Provincial Ambulance Service and pronounced dead at the hospital. Police say his identity has not been released at the request of the family. Anderson, who managed the bakery at the Duncan Superstore, is remembered as a kind and helpful man. more on page 6

Tracy Parow shows her distaste for corporate and bank control of the economy during Saturday’s Occupy Duncan rally in Charles Hoey Park.

reed sucks. That message appeared on Tracy Parow’s small sign among a grove of others hoisted at Saturday’s Occupy Duncan rally against corporate control of Canada’s banking and economic systems. The peaceful protest and parade by some 75 all-age Cowichanians in Charles Hoey Park posed some answers about solving legal control by government, banks, and other ¿rms. But the event did twin similar demonstrations worldwide — including ¿erce Occupy Wall Street protests stateside where economic issues, bank bailouts and bankruptcies have reached a crisis. Cowichanians don’t want things in Canada to get that bad. That’s why ralliers demanded changes to what they said is one per cent of Canucks controlling the economic wealth of the other 99 per cent. “We are the 99 per cent,” said Alastair Haythornthwaite of the machinists’ union. “People are realizing there are two classes, and you can’t put that genie back in the bottle. “It’s based on exploitation and greed, not looking after people.” Folks such as Sharon Ignace. “I’ve fought for this cause all my life,” she said of economic equality. “Little by little, the bad apples run things. “They throw us a bone every few years to shut us up.” But Parow refused to stay quiet about dumping banks and the monetary system, and replacing them with bartered goods and services. “It would be interesting to create a system without money,” she said, noting Nov. 5 is of¿cial Move Your Money Day. “Move it from private banks to credit unions and alternate systems,” she said. Solutions to fairly sharing Canada’s wealth come from electing caring leaders who don’t pander to the establishment, she explained. But elections are only part of the answer, she and Haythornthwaite explained. They wanted public pressure put on our current leaders to change policies suppressing workers’ bargaining rights and allowing other social controls. more on page 4

UP FRONT

Four school trustees decide not to pursue re-election There will be at least four new faces around the School District 79 board table after Nov. 19’s vote. Trustees Ann Andersen, Barb de Groot, Diana Gunderson and Julie Thomas have all bowed out of the running for a seat on the nine-member board. Five familiar faces, however, are up for

re-election — incumbents Deb Foster, Eden Haythornthwaite, Cathy Schmidt, Hannah Seymour and Candace Spilsbury. Newcomers to the election race, meanwhile, are Duncan Brown, Ryan Bruce, Keith Chicquen, Ellen Oxman, Amrik Prihar and Michelle Redfern. For those interested in a look at the candidates,

Behnsen makes it Äve after mayor’s chair

Races busiest in CVRD’s south end

¿ve-way race is underway for North Cowichan’s mayor’s chair. The ¿nal person to ¿le nomination papers by Friday’s deadline was Joyce Behnsen — the lone woman vying for the job in B.C.’s Nov. 19 civic vote. Behnsen, a Duncan native and community project consultant, has a record of attending council meetings and voicing concerns about municipal management. Her planks span open government, ¿nancial accountability, planned growth, affordable housing and recreation, timely business-approval processes, infrastructure upgrades, a ‘Clean Cowichan’ eco-platform, emergency readiness, local food production and more. “For years I felt the mayor’s role should be leadership.” Behnsen would preserve Echo Heights to pprevent competition with developers. Using farmland effectively while promoting local food processing and cold storage was also key. She supports creating jobs in vvalue-added wood sectors. “Economic development is uunder our noses and council hhas kept the door closed, Joyce Behnsen: m making it prohibitive to move wants to be mayor ahead and create industries w we dearly need for our tax base and jobs.” Behnsen nixed borrowing money for municipal-hall renos, preferring satellite of¿ces

Economic development is one of the issues at the forefront in North Cowichan. — perhaps the old Hayes or Doman buildings, pending a cooperative solution. She wanted municipal waste and trash treated to generate power, jobs and taxes. “North Cowichan should be an affordable place to do business with a clean environment and with affordable housing,” she said of creative housing and zoning, maybe “little rural villages.” Amalgamate with Duncan? “Yes, by realigning the borders and include part of Area E at Polkey Road,” Behnsen said, supporting speed bumps, and moving council meetings to evenings. “I don’t go into meetings to waste time but to make decisions. As mayor, I see myself as a host.” Behnsen’s competition — Mayor Tom Walker, former mayor Jon Lefebure, Clayton

Balabanov and Scott Baker — had all declared earlier. Look for their introductory stories online at the elections tab on cowichannewsleader.com. Meanwhile, at least one new face will grace council in a 17-candidate race. Five of six councillors seek re-election, while veteran councillor George Seymour called it quits. The ¿ve-way mayoralty bout twins the card for six council seats currently occupied by incumbents Ruth Hartmann, Dave Haywood, Garrett Elliott, Al Siebring and John Koury — all seeking another three-year term. Their challengers include Pat Barnes, Robert Douglas, Roger Hart, Geoff Hincks, Hilary Huntley, Barb Lines, Rod Lowe, Jagtar Singh Mann, Kate Marsh, Michael Ruge Jennifer Woike and Tom Masters (who was incorrectly referred to as a mayoral candidate in the Oct. 14 edition of the NLP).

here will be a hotly contested race for Cowichan’s south-end seats during the Nov. 19 Cowichan Valley Regional District election, but elsewhere? Not so much. In fact, four incumbent candidates have already secured their seat for the next term, with acclamations in Saltair/ Mel Dorey: Gulf Islands (Mel Dorey), acclaimed Cowichan Station/Sahtlam/ Glenora (Loren Duncan), North Oyster/Diamond (Mary M Marcotte), ) and Cowichan Lake South/Skutz Falls (Ian Morrison). Unsurprisingly, the Mill Bay/Malahat, Shawnigan Lake and Cobble Hill spots have generated the most candidates. In Mill Bay/Malahat, newcomer Angela Auchincloss takes on defeated 2008 candidate Balu Tatachari and Morrison: former director Mike Walker. Ian acclaimed In Shawnigan Lake, incumbent Ken Cossey will attempt to keep his seat from Roy Davies, Bruce Fraser and Kelly Musselwhite. And in Cobble Hill, CVRD Chairwoman Gerry Giles squares off against ECO Depot-opponent Dara Quast.

Corporations control too much, protesters say anti-Harper. She simply wants people to speak out and demand ways to help folks live happy, productive lives. “We could use micro-loans that changed the lives of people in the Third World,” she suggested. “Canada used to be a country looked at with respect, and now the (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper government is making decisions that have changed our reputation.” But Occupy co-organizer Don Skerik noted Harper “only speaks for one per cent of people of the world.”

Some folks wanted everyone to pay their fair tax share — Make The Rich Pay read one placard. City Councillor Joe Thorne recognized how those concerns affect Cowichanians. “One guy I talked to is upset about cuts to veterans (pensions).” Others worry about the environment, local taxes, sewage treatment, Cowichan River’s health “and a lack of government action,” he said. Protestor Danielle Swanson said she’s not

“We need to understand the system’s broken, and corporations control everything.” That’s why Parow said caring community volunteers are doing jobs average Canadians pay taxes for, while some wait for vital services. “For example, why did we have to beg (the B.C. government) for an MRI unit when we pay taxes to provide these services?” Moving from mindless consumerism toward buying vital stuff of value was Skerik’s solution. “Materialism’s the driver — we have to evolve to another ‘ism.’”

The new Àag has now been ordered from the printer’s after exhaustive design deliberations by the city’s centennial committee, led by Councillor Sharon Jackson. Six designs were submitted to the committee then massaged through community group input. However, the ¿nal design is not going to be publicly shown to citizens for comment.

environmental impact. This site is central and smart, and complements existing facilities. If you live in Mill Bay/Malahat, Cobble Hill or Shawnigan Lake be sure to have your say on November 19, 2011.

This is what makes the Cameron Taggart site the perfect place for the Eco Depot, and a big part of helping our region get to Zero Waste: It’s on your way.

It’s low impact.

You’ll save time and gas by not having to drive up to one-hour round-trip to Bings Creek. Instead, the Cameron Taggart site can make recycling easy and a part of your regular routine.

The Eco Depot will be built on 2.5 acres of rocky land that is not in the ALR, and not suitable for growing. It will be nestled within the forest, and buffered by the existing landscape.

It’s better for the environment. The Cameron Taggart site is central to South Cowichan’s 16,000+ residents, which means less driving, less greenhouse gases, less illegal dumping and backyard burning.

It’s the new, green way. The Eco Depot is a newstyle residential recycling collection facility that communities across the country are moving towards to meet their “zero waste” goals. No materials will be processed at the site.

James Smith, 34, of Nanaimo is booked for his ¿rst appearance before a justice of the peace to answer three charges, laid under the Canadian Criminal Code, in Colwood’s Western Communities Courthouse Nov. 24 at 9 a.m., staff said.

Duncan theft opens door to debit card fraud

A

nyone who spotted suspicious activity at Duncan’s White Spot Restaurant during the weekend is asked to contact local Mounties. The call for information comes after someone broke into the local eatery and stole a debit machine plus handheld debit device. “What people do is open those things up to plant a skimmer in them, and then put the machine back into a different business without the

business’ knowledge,” explained Const. Markus Lueder, spokesman at the North Cowichan/Duncan RCMP detachment. “All of a sudden every transaction is available for fraudulence.” The theft was reported on Saturday morning. “Review of surveillance footage shows record of the thief breaking open the front doors of the restaurant and then walking inside and stealing two debit machines from different locations in the restaurant before leav-

ing,” Lueder said in a media release. “The thief was wearing a hoody and was careful not to leave ¿ngerprints at the scene.” Police are further investigating the crime and examining other surveillance footage, but request the assistance of the public to determine the identity of the individual involved in the theft. Anyone with information about the incident can contact the detachment at 250-748-5522, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. — Krista Siefken

f your child is going away for studies and will be renting, it’s important to protect their belongings against burglary, fire, and water damage. Of course, some things are irreplaceable (like that teddy bear they’ve had forever), but insurance can provide you with the funds to purchase things that have been lost. In most cases, when your kids are living away from home temporarily while going to school, their belongings can be covered under your home insurance. Ask your insurance advisor to check your policy with you to ensure your children are covered.

The last thing your student needs to worry about during exams is replacing their laptop or textbooks. Insurance professionals can set you up with proper coverage, so that if your child ever needs it, they can replace what was lost or stolen. Smart Tip: When your child leaves home for the first time, talk to them about safety precautions, like how to use a fire extinguisher and how to contact family in an emergency.

At Island Savings, we’re not just financial experts; we’re insurance experts too, and we want to keep your family protected. Come in to one of our Cowichan Valley branches and talk to a member of our insurance team. Let us help you find the best

Fault stubborn leaders for well water Äasco Chemainus wells: Issue should never have reached the court in the first place

I

t hasn’t happened yet this fall, but it is as inevitable as the rain. Some time prior to the Easter Bunny’s arrival, probably before the reindeer hit your roof, there will be a boil-water advisory in Chemainus. Folks in mural town will be ¿lling their pots, cranking up their stoves and watching the steam rise. Which is ¿tting because steam should also be venting from their ears as they curse the leaders on the North Cowichan and Halalt councils for forcing them into what is a patently ridiculous situation. This is not Chemainus is in possession of a shiny how good new $6 million aquifer-well system neighbours do capable of providing all area residents — Native and non-Native — with as much business clean, potable water as they want. And as the grey North Cowichan sky exhales more H2O than two North Cowichanians could possibly need in 10 winters, that system will sit, dry and quiet. North Cowichan will point ¿ngers at the provincial government for botching the Halalt consultation process, while the province blames the courts. But the simple fact of the matter is this issue would never have gone to court in the ¿rst place if North Cowichan and the Halalt had shown more effective leadership. The Halalt has a court-dictated right to be properly consulted in the issue of that water supply. Both parties knew that. Both parties are also reasonably certain the Halalt does not own the aquifer. Those are reasonable grounds for a negotiated deal. Why North Cowichan could not reach a deal that would satisfy the needs of a Halalt band membership that’s less than one per cent of its population is incomprehensible. Why “good neighbours” can’t strike an interim deal to keep the tap running in the meantime boggles the mind.

We say:

The good and the bad of this week in Cowichan This we don’t

This we like If we skewer the Vancouver Island Health Authority for botching an opportunity to bring MRI service to Cowichan, we also have to praise it for having the common sense to reverse its bad decision. The new portable MRI that will be in Cowichan this spring is going to make life a lot easier to attract and keep doctors. More importantly, it will be better for patients.

Access to an MRI will allow Cowichan hospital to attract and keep more doctors.

It’s great that many people have decided to throw their hats in the ring for the upcoming municipal election. What isn’t so great is the number of politicians and wannabe politicians who will be popping up at every community event in the next six weeks. Not that this is necessarily bad in and of itself, it’s just that we’re left to wonder where they were last year and if they’ll be back next year.

Chief commissioner’s treaty ultimatum welcome Tom Fletcher Black Press

F

inally, somebody in the B.C. treaty negotiation system has come out and said it. Releasing the B.C. Treaty Commission’s 19th-annual report last week, Chief Commissioner Sophie Pierre announced she has asked for a one-year extension to her term, to see the organization through its second decade. And if things don’t change, particularly in Ottawa, then “shut ’er down.” The commission is the independent “keeper of the process,” and the chief commissioner is appointed by agreement between the federal and provincial governments and B.C.’s First Nations Summit. Its job is to facilitate talks and dole out funds to Aboriginal groups researching and negotiating treaties. As of this year, they have disbursed $500 million — $400 million of it loans that must be repaid out of treaty settlements. “We are 19 years into the process, and we

have, just on the First Nations side, a half a billion dollar investment, and when are we going to start seeing a return on that investment?” Pierre asked. It’s safe to assume there has been at least that much spent by the federal and provincial governments as well. And after a burst of progress with the Tsawwassen and Maa-Nulth treaties, and a controversial deal with the Yale First Nation in the Fraser Canyon, costly inaction resumed. Sliammon First Nation negotiators ¿nalized a treaty in 2009. Off it went to Ottawa, where it has languished ever since, waiting for a set of initials that would allow a rati¿cation vote by about 1,000 Sliammon people near Powell River. At stake is a settlement in which B.C. contributes 8,300 hectares of Crown land and Ottawa provides $37 million to compensate for a century of trespass and resource extraction from Sliammon territory. Other commissioners agreed with Pierre about Ottawa’s role, including the federal appointee,

BC VIEWS

Jerry Lampert. “The Canadian system is such that they are constantly going back to Ottawa for mandates for their individual negotiators,” Lampert said. “This is bureaucratic, and it plays against the idea that we’re in a real negotiation.” With a majority government in Ottawa, and B.C. MP John Duncan as federal Aboriginal affairs minister, there is hope of movement. And there is action on another front. Federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq was in B.C. last week to sign an agreement to hand authority and funding for on-reserve health programs to a new Aboriginal authority that will work with the provincial health system directly to administer reserve health programs. This will end a parallel health system run by Ottawa on reserves. A similar agreement was signed in 2006 for Aboriginal schooling. Alas, ¿ve years later, there is still wrangling about funding between the First Nations Education Steering Committee and

Ottawa. But I’m told there is progress there, with resolution possible by the end of this year. Sto:lo Tribal Chief Doug Kelly, chair of the First Nations Health Council, says its ¿nancing terms are clear, and dealing Ottawa out of healthcare delivery will improve outcomes. B.C. Health Minister Mike de Jong and Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak agree these broader self-government transfers for health and education, along with forest and mining deals, will bring treaties closer. Pierre’s blunt warning must have been heard in Ottawa. It appears the Sliammon treaty has been located and will receive federal blessing this week. Tom Fletcher is the legislative reporter for Black Press. Reach him at tÀetcher@blackpress.ca.

North Cowichan spending habits are way out of control

Please, no more applications to join the gang

Dear editor I hope G.D. Chaster’s recent letter has not undone a lot of very hard work by very many people to bring local citizens, their families and tourists to downtown Duncan; to walk, to enjoy music, to stop for a meal or to patronize one or several of our many wonderful shops. He claims there is a bar on every corner and that “drunks and druggies” are either lying around everywhere or dancing in the streets. If the speakers in the park need to be redirected during Summer Festival, this can be addressed. If there are people causing disturbances in the area, this also can be addressed. If trespass and thievery are occurring, I am very sorry to hear it. Please phone the police, Mr. Chaster. That is what they are for. Why he would attach my name to such a letter is a mystery. I am a grandmother who enjoys needlework and growing vegetables. Between my two jobs, my work as a Duncan councillor and my volunteer work, I actually don’t have time to roll around with my friends in Charles Hoey Park. And in regards to me having a “gang,” please stop saying that. Since the letter was published, applications to join have been coming in thick and fast and I don’t know what to do about them. Sharon Jackson

In my opinion: Council is irresponsible

O

ur mayor and council have no common sense about spending or respect for the taxpayer. North Cowichan’s taxation policies have taken more than the median income growth of our residents in the past ¿ve years. The municipality’s taxing and spending is out of control and its taxing spree sped up in 2011. North Cowichan’s per capita taxes (total taxes collected divided by the population of Andrew Leong North Cowichan) have increased by 48 per cent Cowichan residents march in the Occupy Duncan protest Saturday near Charles Hoey Park. To vote on how effective since 2005. For the year 2011, North Cowichan you think the ongoing protest movement will be, log onto cowichannewsleader.com increased per capita taxes by 12 per cent. According to Stats Canada’s last census, during the period 2000 to 2005, North Cowichan’s the government and have their hands in each ram down our thoats. median household incomes increased only by 4.4 other’s pockets?

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Tuesday, October 25 7:00 pm Maple Bay Fire Hall

CVRD echoes call for Smart Meter moratorium The CVRD is following in the footsteps of a recent Union of British Columbia Municipalities’ motion calling for a moratorium on BC Hydro’s Smart Meter program due to concerns about health, privacy and costs. At Wednesday’s board meeting, directors voted to send a letter to BC Hydro as well as Premier Christy Clark, also requesting a moratorium on Smart Meters. Despite director’s doubts after the province’s announcement it will continue with the program regardless, Giles along with her counterparts felt it important to do their share by also sending a letter stamped by the CVRD.

ALL CANDIDATES MEETING

Another 18 animals have been seized from the farm where 88 Berkshire pigs were taken last week. The B.C. SPCA seized the first batch of pigs at Bill Eben’s Bench Road home on Oct. 5. Staff returned the next day to seize another two pigs plus 16 ducks. SPCA officials said they received a two-day animal cruelty warrant to seize the animals after Eben failed to provide adequate water, shelter and veterinary care for his animals. Eben, however, vehemently denies the allegations and is furious about the seizure of his animals.

N

orth Cowichan Councillor Al Siebring is savouring a hard-won half-victory. He’s been campaigning for more than a year to get the provincial government to reconsider its policy of downloading major crime investigation costs onto the municipalities where the crimes occur. And after months of back-and-forth letter writing, Siebring ¿nally got a piece of good news. “I appreciate your concerns around the uncertainty of unanticipated policing costs and your inability to ¿nancially plan for these extraordinary cases,” Solicitor General Shirley Bond wrote in a letter to North Cowichan Mayor Tom Walker. “Ministry staff have spoken with the RCMP about developing some parameters around when the provincial force will assist municipalities with speci¿c crimes and/or investigations. As a result, a working group is being struck to develop some criteria that will provide a level of certainty and consistency between governments.” Siebring said it’s anybody’s guess what the criteria will end up looking like, but he’s pleased to see the process starting. Under the current system, municipalities could be handed multi-million dollar bills several years after a crime occurs. “We need predictability,” Siebring said. “If we’re going to budget, we can’t get a bill three years later.” Bond, meanwhile, promised local government input will be sought in developing the new criteria.

Antique dealer uncovers his art

B

y the way, did you hear: • City antique dealer Ray Scudder has ¿nished his ¿rst sculpture commenting on the plight of women of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside and the Highway of Tears. Scudder’s ¿gurative stonework is on display at Ray’s Antiques in downtown Duncan. • The entrance to Shawnigan Beach Estates looks a little better after a volunteer work party Sept. 11. Organizer Gaileen Flaman is sending huge thanks to volunteers Janet Jensen, Pam Chicquen, Ian Briand, Tim Taylor and Charlie Paluch. Even Shawnigan Director Ken Cossey, who doesn’t even live in the neighbourhood, got his hands dirty. Residents are encouraged to share their visions for the entrance revitalization project with Flaman at 250-929-8372 or giggleen@ yahoo.com • Zoë Nash says Cowichan Toastmasters #950 — a non-pro¿t educational group that offers communication and leadership training at a reasonable cost — is in a period of metamorphosis.

• Duncan’s Alex Amstutz marked the start of the new school year with accolades as Coast Capital Savings handed the University of Victoria student a Citizenship Award for demonstrating strong leadership within his community while balancing his academic and personal life. His was one of 48 awards totalling $144,000 Coast Capital donated to deserving students from across the province. • The name Cornelius (Cory) Holob may not mean much to some in the Cowichan area, but his obituary notice sure caught the attention of Ann Andersen, Glen Ridgway and Anne Murray. The trio, all school trustees in the ‘80s, became well-acquainted with Holob when he was appointed by the provincial government in May 1985 as a trustee to replace a Cowichan school board ¿red that month for refusing to submit a balanced budget. They were all involved in that board. Holob, 84, died last month in White Rock. • Paulette Cornish tells us a couple of artists from our area that will be featured in an art show in Victoria in November called Fibres @ the Hill.

ictoria Ballet is preparing for an unusual pas de deux — classical dance and classic rock — in Ballet Rocks: From Bach to Pink Floyd. Including seven premieres by six choreographers, Ballet Rocks is a mixed program that will blend hard-core music with hard-hitting dance, taking the audience on a musical and movement journey through the ages. The performance will also feature live music from internationally celebrated Canadian cellist Denise Djokic, who will perform Bach cello suites in the ¿rst half. “This is the ¿rst time we’re truly doing a mixed program,” says Ballet Victoria’s artistic director Paul Destrooper. “I’ve always done a oneact ballet or a story ballet, and I would put the mixed

including Wish You Were Here and The Wall, choreographed by Ballet Victoria newcomer Sandrine Cassini from Nice, France who recently joined the company. “I remember watching The Wall cartoon when I was a child,” says Cassini who is also dancing in the production. “Although I’m a classically trained dancer I’ve always regretted not being a rock musician because they get into such a trance on stage. People think ballet is uptight or intellectual, but I think we should have the same audiences at the ballet as at rock shows,” she says.

If you can stand the heat, get into the Kitchen

SPOTLIGHT

From London, England comes a tour de force spectacle frequently performed all throughout Europe. The Kitchen puts the workplace centre stage in a blackly funny and furious examination of life lived at breakneck speed, when work threatens to define who we are. Arnold Wesker’s play is set in 1950s London, in the kitchen of an enormous West End restaurant, where the orders are piling up: a post-war feast of soup, fish, cutlets,

omelettes and fruit flans. Featuring an ensemble of 30 people and set in a real kitchen, actors prepare real food on stage. You can see an encore presentation of the National Theatre production in HD on the big screen, 7 p.m. Thursday at the Cowichan Theatre. Tickets range from $15.50 to $23.50. Call 250-748-7529 or go to www.cowichantheatre.bc.ca.

Citizens, he said, want answers about how the world economy — including money for local programs for the disabled, seniors, kids and others — is controlled by one per cent of the population, including bankers and politicians. “Ronnie called and asked if I’d be interested in a project about health promotion.” Shandel was stoked as a documentary maker who explores medicare and other social keystones. courtesy Tom Shandel The project started in 2008, spotlighting government’s reliance on compassionate non-pro¿t groups such the 250-odd in Volunteer-driven, caring organizations like Cowichan Hospice are key to the concept of health promotion — the subject at the heart of the latest documentary Älm from local producer Tom Shandel.

The Bra Lady Is Coming to Size You Up

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. As youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably seen on Oprah or read in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in. Chapman is coming to DUNCAN ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 25 to outďŹ t you with the best possible bra for

your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-onone basis, explaining the beneďŹ ts of good bras and measuring their bodies properly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most women just want to ďŹ nd a good-ďŹ tting bra thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncomfortable,â&#x20AC;? Chapman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.â&#x20AC;? Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ t somewhere between those sizes.

wo solid outings with the Victoria Cougars are a sign the Kerry Park Islanders can compete with the best in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. The Islanders put the ¿rst blemish on the Cougars’ record with a 4-3 overtime win in Victoria last Thursday and kept it close in the rematch at Kerry Park Arena Saturday, losing 3-2. “The Thursday game, I thought was one of our best team games we’ve had all year,’’ said Islanders’ coach Brad Scafe. Due to ongoing suspensions, call-ups were needed from the Cowichan Valley and Nanaimo midget teams. “We changed a few things, our coverage

and stuff, and the midget guys grabbed onto it real good,’’ said Scafe. “We kept it simple and smart.’’ Conner Morgan’s second goal of the game was the overtime winner. Cole Thomson and Alex Milligan also scored. Scafe praised referee Byron Ellingson’s handling of the game. “It led to a good game,’’ he said. The rematch was much different, as the Cougars had nine power plays compared to ¿ve for Kerry Park. “When you’re in the box, there’s no Àow,’’ said Scafe. Thomson and Jake Newman scored goals. Goalie Matt Chester was brilliant in both games. The Islanders have added defenceman Josh Garneau, who was at the provincials last year, from Fernie for futures.

Close encounters in volleyball

Brentwood tournament: Hosts catch fire after a slow start, but Lambrick pulls through Don Bodger

News Leader Pictorial

T

he Brentwood College Invitational is a great gauge for senior girls’ volleyball teams of all levels. Traditionally, it’s been a turning point or a wake-up call depending on the outcomes at the crucial point of the high school season. The seven participating teams all at various stages of ef¿ciency put everything on the line during the two-day event in a competitive environment. The result was some exciting action and a ¿ne line between winning and losing. “This tournament, for us, we were sort of up and down a little bit,’’ said Brentwood coach Jill Fougner. “Usually, it’s ourselves or (Frances) Kelsey that won it.’’ The two local schools have occasionally put powerful squads on the court at the same time, but more often than not one is rebuilding while the other is at its peak. Kelsey is clearly in transition while Brentwood has another team capable of doing some damage in AA despite considerable roster turnover and the loss of veteran players from last year. Brentwood started this tournament on a bit of a downer, losing 21-25, 23-25 to Timberline and 15-25, 2325 to St. Thomas Aquinas. “We did not play well at all,’’ said Fougner. “The girls were able to rebound

back and played well the rest of the tournament.’’ Brentwood turned things around by beating Vanier 25-20, 25-10, Belmont 25-16, 25-17 and Kelsey 25-12, 25-14. That set up a key match with Lambrick Park, a higher-ranked team in AA, and it was a barnburner. Brentwood had a 23-22 in the second game, but couldn’t put Lambrick away. “Lambrick’s a tough team,’’ said Brentwood’s Stephanie Turnbull. “We’re just on the rise right now. We haven’t reached our peak. Every single game we get better.’’ Turnbull, who plays left side and sometimes libero, was still philosophical about the results. “It’s a transition year,’’ she said. “We lost a lot of Grade 12s last year. “We have an awesome team environment.’’ Brentwood went on to knock off Timberline 25-16, 25-15 in a rematch for third place while Lambrick won the tournament over St. Thomas in the ¿nal 25-21, 25-19. “It was too bad not being in the ¿nal,’’ said Fougner. “It was nice to beat (Timberline) quite soundly in that third-place game.’’ Spencer Manton was the Brentwood player chosen to the tournament’s all-star team. Kelsey had a tough time but played hard and ¿nished sixth after losing its playoff match to Vanier 17-25, 12-25.

“I guess the match had lost some its lustre,’’ said coach Mark Jackson after a previous barnburner between the teams. “It didn’t seem like the same match.’’ The lone victory for Kelsey in round robin was 25-18, 29-27 over Belmont. Results of Kelsey losses were: 2225, 16-25 against Timberline, 17-25, 18-25 against St. Thomas, 19-25, 2515, 12-15 to Vanier, 12-25, 14-25 to Brentwood and 20-25, 16-25 against Lambrick. “It was a good tournament to be in,’’ said Jackson. “I told the girls it was like being in a Gold division. “The girls learned a lot and stepped up and competed. Our key is sustaining the level of play.’’ Even though the team was a bit up and down, Jackson saw some positive signs in overcoming adversity. “We also have some injuries and some issues here and there,’’ he said. “At the end of the day, I’ve got a great group of kids, they work really hard and I’m proud of them.’’ Monica Whitney-Brown was Kelsey’s all-star team selection. Jackson was also impressed with Julia Norman’s great serving performances and solid setting and ¿ne play at libero from Leigh Borrett. Kelsey heads to Handsworth this weekend and then will be participating in the annual DCS tournament during the ¿rst weekend in November. Brentwood is at the Independent Schools ¿nals that weekend.

DCS girls making substantial progress Game plan: It’s not possible to reach the same level of intensity in volleyball practices Don Bodger

D

uncan Christian School’s senior girls’ volleyball team is rapidly improving by playing against tougher competition. The girls ¿nished tied for 11th in the high-powered 20-team Camosun College high school tournament and then cranked it up a notch to place fourth of 16 teams at Cedar. The Single-A school hasn’t encountered many teams in its own category yet. “We’re in tournaments that have triple, double, quad,’’ said coach Mary Joan Visscher. “That’s our focus right now. “I just want to give this team the opportunity to play some stronger schools because we can’t mimic that at practice.’’ DCS quickly rose to the occasion at Camosun and looked even more comfortable at Cedar. “It showed a lot of growth on our part, for sure,’’ said Visscher. “It’s been really good for us to be a part of these strong tournaments.’’ DCS played in a powerful pool at Cedar with Dover Bay — the eventual champions — and only lost 15-13 in the ¿nal set and had close results with third-place ¿nisher Ballenas. Defeating Triple-A Wellington to close out the pool match-ups eventually sent DCS on the way to fourth overall by knocking off Nanaimo District Secondary. As is typical for a small school, Visscher has a core of returning players but rounded out the squad with the additions of some Grade 9s who’ve really stepped up to the talent level. “You have to dip into the other grade levels,’’ she said. “It really shows when you play at a higher calibre at a younger age, it really increases your rate of development as an athlete.’’ Megan Groenendijk and Jess Wikkerink were among those who did just that during their early years at the

Andrew Leong, Don Bodger

school and are reaping the rewards now in Grade 12. DCS is off to the B.C. Christian Schools tournament this weekend at Langley Christian. “We have to play one game at a time and go from there,’’ said Visscher of the prognosis.

She went searching for the best rowing opportunity but also found volleyball and more. “Just the calibre of the school and academics of the school are outstanding,’’ Turnbull said. While rowing’s her first love, Turnbull is proving to be a dynamic volleyball player for coach Jill Fougner’s senior girls’ squad. Turnbull only started playing volleyball four years ago at the Hill Academy in Vaughan, Ont. “I love her competitiveness,’’ said Fougner. “She’s sort of a coach’s dream that way. Whether it’s a practice or a game, she’s just got a great work ethic and mentally very tough.’’ Don Bodger

THE SCORE

Knippelberg strikes twice in Cowichan’s 2-0 victory over Alberni Mitch Knippelberg isn’t just a presence on the basketball court. Knippelberg is making an impact as a soccer player with the Cowichan Secondary School senior boys’ team as well. The Grade 12 student had both goals, as Cowichan defeated Alberni

District Secondary 2-0 last Wednesday. Knippelberg scored at the nine- and 26-minute marks. Both goals came from crosses on the right hand side and finished off nicely by Knippelberg. Noah Dobson and Sam Gillman were stellar on defence according to

Ron Glass. “Cowichan played a very structured game led by Tanner Dobson and Kodi Archbold in the midfield,’’ Glass added. It was a big improvement from the previous week when Cowichan was railroaded 6-1 by Dover Bay. Jimmy Baker had the lone goal in that game.

Caps can’t dig themselves out of another 4-0 hole Tale of two teams: Second team needs to show up more often for success Don Bodger

F

alling behind 4-0 isn’t a great game plan. For the second game in a row, that’s the de¿cit the Cowichan Valley Capitals faced against B.C. Hockey League opponents despite playing in the supposedly friendly con¿nes of Cowichan Arena. The Caps managed to dig themselves out of it the previous week to earn a 5-5 overtime with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, but weren’t so fortunate Saturday against the Coquitlam Express. Despite another huge rally to close the gap to 4-3, the Caps couldn’t ¿nd the equalizer this time and eventually gave up an empty-net goal that clinched a 5-3 victory for the Express. “We got off to kind of a slow start,’’ said Caps’ forward Matt Brown. “That’s not what we were looking for (Saturday) night.’’ Brown said the Caps have been like two different teams in the same game. “We’ve got to ¿gure out a way to get that second team rolling right off the bat.’’ Brown added the Caps’ troubles early in games are just a matter of the players getting on the same page. A 4-3-1 start still has the team feeling positive. “We’re moving in the right direction,’’ said Brown. “We have a really good group of guys.’’ Trailing 3-0 after the ¿rst period, the Caps appeared sunk when they gave up another goal with only 6:38 left in the middle frame. But David Pope got that one back less than a minute

later and provided some hope going into the third period. Veterans Josh Monk and Brown utilized their experience to get the Caps back into it, scoring goals 25 seconds apart. There was still nearly 13 minutes remaining when Brown scored, giving the Caps plenty of time to pull even. But Coquitlam goalie Khaleed Devji had other ideas. As he’s done in other games, Devji preserved Coquitlam’s lead by making 50 saves on 53 shots overall. “He was always square to the shots,’’ said Brown. “We were giving ‘er, but it just didn’t work out.’’ The Caps want to be much better on home ice than they’ve been, making it a dif¿cult place for opponents to play. “We’ve got a pretty good fan base here,’’ said Brown. “We want to make sure we’re putting the product on the ice they want to see. We’ve got to be better at producing a 60-minute game.’’ For now, the Caps will be hitting the road this weekend for games in Salmon Arm Friday, Penticton Saturday and Merritt Sunday. “That’ll be a good test for the boys, three games in three nights,’’ said Brown. On a personal note, Brown is enjoying the transition to a new community in his ¿nal season of junior. “It’s a blast,’’ he said. “It’s a great group of fellows on the team.’’ Brown also spoke highly of his billets and the organization as a whole. “It feels great to be in place like this,’’ he raved.

Nifty move to the backhand is made by the Caps’ Devin Gannon in the middle of the ice to try to shake off Coquitlam’s Zack Holstrom from checking him in Saturday night’s B.C. Hockey League game at Cowichan Arena.

WALL OF FAME

The first female team to be inducted into the North Cowichan-Duncan Sports Wall of Fame remains a hard act to follow 30 years later. The 1979-80 Cowichan Thunderettes basketball team, coached by John Lockwood and Jim Nugent, went 46-1 that season and won the provincial champion-

O

ne thing’s consistent with all the inductees since the inception of the North CowichanDuncan Sports Wall of Fame in 2008. They’re a grateful bunch. “The nice thing about it is how grateful all the inductees end up being,’’ noted North Cowichan Parks and Recreation Manager Ernie Mansueti, who initiated the concept. “Pretty amazing.’’ The 2011 inductees who joined the ranks Saturday at the Cowichan Golf and Country Club ¿t the pattern. And Chris Mann, Earl Morris, Don Smith, Kay Wilson and the 1979-80 Cowichan Thunderettes’ basketball team were all deserving recipients of the honour for a variety of reasons. “I am overly thrilled,’’ said football guru Mann, who was the ¿rst to the podium. Mann put women’s football on the map. “Over the years, you just come out and volunteer and you just work with the girls or the boys, too, as well and it’s just every year you do that as part of what you do,’’ he said. Mann talked to wife Wendy last year about retiring from his volunteer role but naturally had a change of heart. “I said, ‘man, if I retire, what do I do?’’ he chuckled. “Of course, then spring rolled around and the ¿rst thing you do you get on the phone and you’re out there again.’’ Mann said it’s never been about winning. “All we do is get out there and all I want to see is the girls or the boys perform at their best.’’ Morris is well-known for his incredible fastball feats and longevity that continued into the masters level. “As always, I think if you’re going to be successful as an athlete you have to have your family behind you,’’ said Morris. “I’d just like to thank my family for supporting me.

TEAMAN DUNC

“I’ve pitched and played ball for, I hate to say it, but about 50 years. My family has been in tournaments up and down the island and throughout Washington state for every summer for the last little while.’’ Morris also mentioned how much he was inÀuenced by Wally Thorne. “He was a great coach and mentor for me and I don’t think I’d be as good an athlete without Wally’s leadership.’’ Smith had the backing of a solid crew and supporters during his many years on the auto racing circuit. “For years people gave up six months of their life to drag their families around after this thing — weekends or evenings,’’ he said. “A lot of us had a lot of fun — did a lot of things.’’ The support of the business community is paramount in auto racing and Smith had plenty of it. “It’s a small community and everybody’s pretty tight-knit and there’s a lot of people in business over the years that helped me in a sport I loved and I thank everybody,’’ he said. Greg Carter accepted the award given to Wilson posthumously and spoke about her endearing qualities. “She was intelligent, independent, a sense of humour — kind of raunchy at times — loyal, with a real competitive spirit,’’ Carter said. “You can almost see it in her facial expression here,’’ he said, pointing to her picture. “I think she’d be very proud tonight to receive this award, this honour, from her hometown.’’ Last but not the least to hit the podium were the dynamic ladies from the 1979-80 Cowichan Thunderettes. All but one of the players from the team attended the ceremony. “I had to do a little bit of prodding to ¿gure out what this Wall of Fame stuff was,’’ said player spokesperson Twon Klawer. “It’s great that Cowichan does this and I think we’re honoured

Coach John Lockwood had to sort out the players based on their maiden names but was ecstatic to see them all again. “I can guarantee if I put them all on the baseline and had them run lines, they could probably still do it,’’ he raved. Lockwood praised the solid parent base that made the team tick. “Yes, there were lots of highlights but you know the biggest highlight was seeing the smiling faces here again tonight. “And with that, tell me to sit down,’’ he chuckled with his trademark sense of humour. The inductions bring the total number of honourees to 25. The diversity of the valley’s sport scene has been further advanced with tennis and auto racing represented for the ¿rst time. Nomination forms go out again in the spring so the public will have a chance to determine who the next inductees will be in 2012.
