North Cowichan resident Sheila Wray and her puppy, Zorro, had a lucky escape this week but she says she doesn’t want to see anyone else hurt like they were. Her dog, a three month-old shepherd/husky cross, was severely mauled by a pit bull in Chemainus late Tuesday afternoon, June 25 and Wray herself was also injured as she and others tried to free her puppy from the clenched jaws. She had purchased the puppy after her partner died earlier this year, hoping that the sweet little dog would provide much-needed companionship. So, having this happen now is just adding to a difficult 2013, Wray said. She has been taking Zorro out, socializing him. “He’s getting along really good with the other dogs, loving to play with them. This was the first time I’ve taken him to Chemainus beach [Kin Park]. There’s a little park there, I used to take my granddaughter there. “There were probably three other dog owners walking their dogs.

They were all having a good time. Then, all of a sudden, as I turned to talk to somebody, I looked back and there was another dog in the mix and it was a brindle pit bull. “It came in from I don’t know where, kind of rushing in the way pit bulls do. Because I’m familiar with the stories of pit bulls, my mind was immediately thinking: watch out for this, this is danger. And at the same time I was thinking: is that just a stereotype? But no sooner had I thought that than he had my dog down and was ripping and tearing at it and shaking it. I just flew at them and had my hands in the pit bull’s mouth trying to get it to let loose.” She said she was not really aware of anything else but realized “every other dog owner on that beach was there kicking and punching and pulling at the pit bull to get it off. It seemed to go on for ages but I imagine it was five or 10 minutes. I thought my dog was dead.” The pit bull’s owner never appeared and she still doesn’t See Wray also • page 8

Ladysmith hit with freak flood lems and it temporarily backs up.” T h o s e wh o w i t n e s s e d i t described an unusually heavy downpour, even by West Coast standards. “It was amazing,” said Susan Maxwell, an agent at Marlin Travel in Coronation Mall. “It looked like a white sheet outside our windows. It was so thick we weren’t sure if it was hail or rain, but we’ve never seen anything like it before.” From his office at Vancouver Island Insurance Centre, Brian Saunders, 64, watched what he considered the hardest rain he’s ever seen, “and I’ve lived on the Island my whole life.” Witnesses reported traffic coming to a crawl, and Saunders said if he were driving, “I would have done 35 kilometres, max” in the downpour, which lasted about half an hour.

Dredging ‘massive interruption’ to estuary say protesters KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Opponents of Western Forest Products’ dredging work in Cowichan Bay were out in force on Wednesday morning to protest the operation. A couple dozen protesters were on hand outside the WFP gates on Tzouhalem Road, stating their objections to the ongoing work. WFP has received approval from the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans to do the work, but that’s not good enough for folks who are concerned about damage to the Cowichan River estuary. “They don’t have a social permit,” said Goetz Schuerholz, chair of the Cowichan Estuary Restoration and Conservation Alliance. “They may have an official one, but they don’t have a social one.” Schuerholz has called the dredging work a “massive interruption” of the estuary ecosystem. Brian Clark, an artist and electrician from Mill Bay, isn’t opposed

to industry in general, but doesn’t think Cowichan Bay is the right location for companies like WFP. “I don’t think they should have log booms in the bay at all,” he said. “Why don’t they just haul them up on shore? The dredging doesn’t matter to me, but if it were up to me, the estuary would be closed up to any industrial actions. Move it all to Crofton.” Cowichan Bay would be better used for tourism, he said. It would take 40 years for the estuary to recover if industry did move out, but Clark believes it will happen soon. He also commented on the region’s potential to capitalize on the boom in eco-tourism. “We have this beautiful Valley and landscapes, and we’re tearing it apart as fast as we can,” he said. “We have this deep sea port, so why can’t we bring cruise ships into it?” Hilary Stead wants to make sure the estuary is preserved for the future of her 10-and-a-half-month-

As with Clark, Stead is not opposed to industry, but wants to make sure the impact on the environment is regulated. “I don’t think the government is doing its job,” she said. “More and more environmental laws are being revoked. We all use wood products, and I’m glad to see wood products coming out of here rather than raw logs, but the way it’s done should be changed.” According to the Cowichan Estuary Restoration and Conservation Alliance, the Cowichan estuary is the fourth largest on Vancouver Island, and among the top 10 in the province in terms of conservation values and habitat restoration potential. “There’s lots of life in this estuary, and we need to protect it,” said Stead. “There is some kind of protection for it now, but that, apparently, is meaningless.”

Unusually heavy rain clogged drains and flooded parts of Ladysmith on Tuesday. A torrential afternoon rain caused water to back up in several areas, including downtown. It reached almost half a metre in depth in places. Water penetrated the town hall, though no damage was reported. It was short-lived. Once the rain let up, backed-up water drained. “In a couple places there was insufficient capacity in the system,” said John Manson, Ladysmith director of infrastructure services. “The storm systems are designed for a certain intensity of rain and the old systems are not designed for big storms.

Crofton cats being targeted by pellet gun shooter LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

Crofton residents are up in arms because it seems somebody is shooting neighbourhood cats with a pellet gun. Lorelei Rondeau is still upset after having to bury her beloved cat, Tux, just last week. “It was on Sunday, June 16 that he went missing. It was 7:30 at night was the last time he was seen. He was happy and healthy and then he just seemed to vanish off the face of the earth.” Husband Wilf stayed up till 11:30 p.m. calling him without success. “Although he usually comes in, sometimes on warm evenings like that he’ll sleep out in the yard,” she said. But when they called for him again early in the morning and he didn’t come home for food, she went to some of the neighbours, thinking he might have gotten locked in a garden shed. “I knew something wasn’t right

because he was a cat that was always in your face. He walked with the dog and I twice a day. He was just a cat that was always there.” A neighbour three doors down spotted his body under their hedge and let Rondeau know Monday evening. “He was clean as a whistle, he hadn’t been hit or anything, his fur was beautifully clean. But on one side of him, it was soaked blood about the size of a toonie on his rib cage. Not good.” They buried him and then Rondeau contacted the SPCA, local vets, Coastal Animal Services and the provincial animal hotline for cruelty to animals to make sure there was something recorded about the incident. No autopsy was done but Rondeau learned there had been a problem with cats being shot with pellets in her area. “It was only after, when I wasn’t going to cry, after a couple of

Tux was killed last week by what owners suspect was a pellet. Other cat owners in the area have dug pellets out of their pets. [JEAN BALLARD PHOTO] days, that I started talking to the neighbours and came across two more that had pellets in their cats. That meant it wasn’t just a onetime incident. There’s somebody around with a pellet gun that’s targeting cats.” Rondeau said she’s worried that someone is discharging a weapon in an area frequently used by animals and children. “Down in the lane where he was

found, there’s a duplex there. One side has two kids and the other side has five kids. They play in those yards. It’s close to houses.” She and her neighbours went to the RCMP, where a file has been opened. “Hopefully, something will come of that. And one of the neighbours is offering a reward of $500 for information about this as well,” she said. Neighbour, Haylee Smith, is also

hoping for action. One of her four cats has been victimized. “My cat was shot. He has a pellet under his right armpit. It happened around last July. This kind of thing has obviously been going on for a long time. I’ve had three cats go missing in the 13 years I’ve lived on this street. Now, of course, I’m really concerned. “My own cat is good right now. The pellet is just floating under his skin right now and the vet said not to remove it. But it’s hard to see one hit. It makes me sick. It really does. That kind of behaviour is disgusting.” She has also spoken to the police and will get them a statement this week. “And, I’ve heard the guy down the street has had a cat shot. I hope people will see this story and recognize what’s going on in Crofton and that will make them stop. No one likes an animal killer,” Smith said. RCMP were unavailable for comment on the file Thursday.

Two arrested in credit card fraud that hit local shops LINDSAY KINES TIMES COLONIST

The RCMP has arrested a mother and daughter who were allegedly part of an organized crime group that committed more than $90,000 in credit card fraud in communities across Vancouver Island, including Duncan and Mill Bay. Karen Mauro, 63, and Christine Mauro, 46, face multiple counts of fraud under $5,000 and using credit card data. They made their first court appearance in Victoria on June 13 and have been released on exten-

sive conditions under house arrest, the RCMP said in a statement. Police allege that the two women were key members of a four-person crime group that was responsible for hundreds of credit card fraud cases from January 2011 to March 2012. The cards were allegedly altered and used to purchase high-end electronics, furniture, gift cards and other merchandise, RCMP said. In some cases, the crimes were never reported to police. Investigators with the RCMP’s

Federal Serious and Organized Crime Integrity unit worked on the case for months with banks, merchants, Victoria police and RCMP detachments across the island. Sgt. Peter Thiessen, acting federal media relations officer, said the ring allegedly targeted merchants in 10 communities including Langford, Sidney, Port Alberni, Courtenay, Mill Bay and Duncan. “So they certainly were very mobile, he said. “The victims were everything from big-box retailers, well-known retail companies to the small family-run, mom-andpop-type businesses.” Thiessen said the RCMP is encouraging businesses to refrain from entering credit card numbers manually if a card’s chip or swipe strip malfunctions. He also advised merchants to report all fraudulent transactions immediately in case they are part of a larger problem. Failure to report such crimes makes it more difficult for investigators to track the perpetrators, he said.

Keeping a dog under control can save a life lease, we beg of you, if you have a dog, keep it under control, particularly if it is likely to attack another animal or a person. On our front page today we have a story about what can happen if you don’t. And that story has a comparatively happy ending. All too often such incidents end with at least one animal dead. Sometimes it is the animal that is attacked, sometimes it is the animal doing the attacking, which ends up having to be put down. It can all be avoided by owners

making sure their dogs are trained and socialized, and if they are aggressive, properly confined within a yard, or controlled on a leash. We don’t want to see any animals pay the price for an owner’s carelessness. It is our responsibility as pet owners to do our best to ensure the safety of others, as well as our furry friends.

fatality, it can leave lasting scars, and we don’t just mean the physical ones like those that are visible on puppy Zorro. Zorro will now no doubt lose some of his puppy innocence, learning fearfulness of other dogs approaching. The same result can be seen in people who are attacked by a dog. It’s always good practice to be cautious when approaching a dog you don’t know. If it is with a human, you should ask the person if the dog is friendly before you attempt to pet it or get close.

Even if they say yes, you should pay attention to the dog’s body language and demeanour. Is it wagging its tail or is the fur up on its back? Is it trying to hide behind the person with it or does it look eager to greet you? You should always take all of these things into consideration. Some dogs don’t want you, a stranger, to pet them. Any approach may be unwelcome, or even seem threatening. Some dogs will try to lick your face and roll over so you can scratch their belly. Others just want to be left alone. We must respect the latter.

If a dog isn’t with a human you should be doubly cautious about approaching it. In fact, in general, we’d recommend you don’t. That applies even if the dog is only big enough to fit in your hand. The little ones can have a big bite, too. We only hope that folks who do have a negative experience with a dog aren’t put off dogs entirely. They can be wonderful companions, full of love to give. It’s important to remember that, much like humans, the actions of one don’t define the actions of all.

Echo Heights is a waste of taxpayer dollars When will North Cowichan council ever get the message that the municipality should never be in the development business? Just look at their recent foray into the purchase of the curling club ($771,000) only to find out that there is not enough property there to develop around the sheets of ice. Now, the municipality is looking at wasting more taxpayer dollars acquiring land around it. Or, as John Koury said referring to Echo Heights “….the hundreds of thousands of dollars that got us to that point.” How did council ever authorize wasting taxpayer dollars like that and

producing zero results? Or, does councillor Marsh even understand that there is a correlation between taxes and wasted dollars spent at Echo Heights when she says “I really do fully understand the need to sometimes develop municipal land to keep taxes affordable.” Since when do examples of wasted taxpayer dollars like these equal lower taxes? This council and staff have no business sense. They treat the land like it is free. The only cost in their view is the out of pocket costs incurred to develop it. They ignore the fact that if the land really is surplus to the needs of North Cowichan, the land could be sold with absolutely no development cost to the

taxpayer. Cash received would go to the public purse with no risk to the taxpayer. Mayor Lefebure always talks about densification. How does Echo Heights development meet those criteria when most of the people live in the Duncan area? Once again, our leaders are not even living up to the spirit of the OCP. This council makes it easy to rationalize replacing them in the next civic election. Don Swiatlowski North Cowichan Send us your letter.

Copy of a letter to Brian Dennison, Engineering Services, Cowichan Valley Regional District. First of all I would like to commend the CVRD on doing a splendid job with regard to recycling and waste management in the Cowichan Valley. However, there is one small area that not only should but must be remedied. Regarding non-refundable glass bottles and jars, I do not feel the district’s goals/mandate are being met. According to the CVRD’s Solid Waste Management Plan – Facility Development Guiding Principles, page 19: “The CVRD intends that residents of the CVRD electoral areas and municipalities have convenient access to waste management facilities within a reasonable distance of their homes.” With regard to most other household recyclable materials that requirement is being met. You do an excellent job with recyclable paper, cans, plastics, food waste, cardboard — but what about recyclable glass? Do you expect every householder in the area to drive to Bing’s Creek or Boys Road to dispose of their glass? Even the elderly? (There are a lot of them in the area.) Everybody has glass to recycle. To have to drive those distances seems unreasonable. I do have a solution to suggest. Could there not be at least one drop off location between the other two for glass? Could the CVRD negotiate with the Bottle Depot on Norcross Road to have a glass depository either in their parking lot or inside their building? This location is close to the shopping centre where most everyone goes fairly frequently, See System not • page 7

Cowichan Valley Citizen | Friday, June 28, 2013

Grandfather Heron is worried about his lunch It’s Grandfather Heron here. I’ve noticed the big dredging machines that are out in the estuary digging up the silt. It seems like they are widening the channel more than usual for the logs at the mill and I’m wondering how that will impact getting food for my family? It seems like once again the humans aren’t really thinking of us herons and are acting as if there is no tomorrow. Has nothing been learned in the last few decades about the sensitive nature and importance of estuaries? Certainly I wasn’t consulted in this process. Was Cowichan Tribes consulted? Rumour has it that the humans have never made an environmental assessment of the impacts of dredging. It seems that once again the Minister of the Environment or the Department of Fisheries has given assent without the heron-friendly humans being consulted in the process. Do they fear concerned citizens will slow them down and interfere with business as usual? This is the sort of callous disregard for community life that is very threatening to me and my family. Dredging machines scoop up the estuary floor and the thin web of life there on the mud. All the rearing habitat, crabs and little creatures are scooped up and piled onto the shore. That’s not good for us herons. Does anybody know how far

CLEANING UP COWICHAN

Grandfather Heron is worried about dredging. [SUBMITTED] the dredging will go? Are there heavy metals being carried by the clouds of silt being carried by the currents that will poison my lunch? Shouldn’t this be studied? Will there be a paid government biologist on the job? Are there ways that dredging can be done that minimizes the impact on sea life? Can Western Forest Products be counted on to provide some compensation for what they take out of the bay? How do we herons and the public get answers to questions like these? I hope local citizens speak up. Without people calling for things to slow down and for a transparent process that includes everyone, my future and the future of all my relations, including my human neighbours, is seriously at risk.

SCAN WITH The Cowichan Valley ATV Club, thanks to organization by Randy Huene, spent the weekend cleaning up illegal dump sites on two kilometres of BC Hydro right-of-way east and west of Paldi.

of it in their garbage because driving long distances to recycle it is just too inconvenient. Something must be done to solve this problem. I hope you have found the above suggestion helpful. As you have done a find job with regard to other recyclable materials I am sure you will find a good solution for glass.

System not working and most people periodically go to the Bottle Depot. If that is not possible, could there be a drop somewhere on the Cowichan Commons parking lots? The present glass recycling system is not working. Glass is an important recyclable material and most people to whom I have spoken say they are disposing

know who the owner is. Wray heard later Wednesday that friends who live near the park in Chemainus are busily trying to discover where the pit bull came from and who owns it. “Finally, my dog got free and I didn’t know what shape it was in. It was screaming and crying. I didn’t dare move it, just held it tight in my arms. As I was going I saw the girl with the Irish setter had the pit bull by its collar. It had blood dripping out of its mouth and it was staring at me. Not a pretty sight.” One of the women from the beach drove her and Zorro to the animal hospital in Chemainus. “The doctor was wonderful. And the girls stayed overtime, too, as they did surgery and cleaned it up,” she praised. Her dog has about 20 stitches closing his wound, and Wray said she’s going to try to find the pit bull’s owner and make them pay the bill. Wray was also bitten in the tussle and was headed out to the hospital to get a tetanus shot Wednesday afternoon and to have her own wounds looked at.

“I had my hand right in the pit bull’s mouth. If there hadn’t been other people on that beach I could have gotten mauled myself,” she said. She said she didn’t know if any of the other dog owners were bitten. In spite of his ordeal Zorro is looking perky. Wray is now concentrating on finding out more about the pit bull, which she wants either put down or forced to wear a muzzle. Wray said she was concerned that a possibly dangerous dog was loose in a popular park. “We used to take our little

Phoenix ready for rebirth with Farm Store, apartments KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

An exciting new era is rising on Duncan Street. The building previously known as the Phoenix will transfer fully into the hands of Cowichan Green Community this Friday at noon, beginning a new era for the building at 360 Duncan St. Cowichan Green Community has occupied the southern portion of the building since last October, but made an offer to purchase the entire edifice not long after moving in, and the sale went through last week. With the new ownership will come new uses for the building, including a retail business relocating from next door, and 20 affordable housing suites upstairs. “Cowichan Green Community will continue to stay in the space we already rent,” said Executive Director Judy Stafford. “Nicolette

Genier and the Community Farm Store will move into the pub and liquor store space.” The Community Farm Store currently occupies a corner of the Duncan Garage building next door to the Phoenix, and will continue to operate out of there while the pub and liquor store spaces are renovated. The new location is scheduled to open on Nov. 1. The hotel rooms will also be renovated significantly as affordable apartments, managed by Cowichan Green Community. “We really want to offer housing that is affordable,” said Stafford. “We are really not in a position to offer social housing; we don’t have the capacity or the funding to offer support. We are looking to attract people who want to live in an affordable, vibrant building. We believe there’s a whole crosssection of people who will want to live here.”

The renovations should be done by the end of the year, said Stafford, but hopeful tenants are encouraged to visit the Cowichan Green Community office to get on the wait list. When the renovations are complete, Cowichan Green Community hopes to run the entire structure as a demonstration building, including solar power and an electric car charging station, as well as edible landscaping outside. “We want to make a site that is as unique and as green as possible,” said Stafford. “The energy in the building will be pretty vibrant and attractive. We’re hoping people will want to live here.” Stafford has already seen a change since her organization moved into the building last fall. “I would definitely say it has been a more prominent location,” she said. “We have more people walking by; it’s more accessible.”

Car crash knocks out power to over 1,400 KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Customers in two different areas were affected when a vehicle struck a Hydro pole on Wednesday morning. The single-vehicle incident took place at 5:11 a.m., taking out a double-circuit pole south of Duncan.

“We had two circuits tripped back to the station,” said BC Hydro spokesperson Ted Olynyk. More than 1,400 customers north of Koksilah Road were hit by the outage, and about the same number were affected south of Tzouhalem Road. The first group had their power back on shortly after 11 a.m., and the rest had theirs

Duncan’s Got Talent debuts new categories THE DUNCANCOWICHAN Festival Soci-

LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

Everybody knows Duncan’s Got Talent and if you want to prove you do, too, you can join the fun as the annual competition begins at Charles Hoey Park Tuesday, July 2. Organizers have changed the setup this year to allow different kinds of performers to duke it out on a more level playing field. Judge Cathy Schmidt, who will be back this year, said that it was time to break the event up into categories. “We found that last year, when Vance [Driver, one of the eventual winners] came out, we just went, ‘oh my!’ And how many singer/ songwriters did we have? Several. That was the first year we had them in the mix, and we had that young piano player, too. So we realized we did need to break it up because we were starting to draw all forms of talent.” Everything kicks off with the dance competition which hits the park from July 2-6. This event is sure to be a popular draw as the area boasts lots of great dancers like Driver, last year’s co-winner. Following that, from Monday, July 8 to Friday, July 13, the deck is cleared for a huge category entitled “cover and show tunes” while from July 15-20, it’s all about

kids the confidence to take that next step.” One example is Syan Johnson. “We introduced ourselves and she asked us, ‘what is this musical society?’ She didn’t win but here she ended up as a farmer’s daughter in the cast of Oklahoma! Would she have done that before? I don’t know. Now I can’t wait to see what next steps she takes. “And remember Kasper [Cooper], he hadn’t performed before and he took great direction from Laura and I. We just watched him bloom into a teenage heartthrob for the teenage girls behind us. The best part is seeing these kids after, what they’ve done. “And positive reinforcement is really helpful. They take it better and just move forward…when we got to competition, we had a real competition.”

Not 37, not 38, but 39 is the number of exciting days Duncan will be celebrating during Summer Festival 2013. Opening ceremonies kicks off in a big way in City Square on June 28 with the Royal Canadians, White Hot Jet and the Wild Romantics. Here’s everything you need to plan for the next 38 days: At the train station parking lot (everything starts at noon): June 29 features Reggae Rapture in on the Beach and features Weekes, Ganjo Bassman, Lion Rockers, Emma Plant and the Rainforest. The Kid’s Sand Castle Building and Busting Showcase starts at noon June 30. The next day sees the entire train station parking lot covered in sand where the annual Beach Volleython Tournament be held — plus music by Tropic Mayham. A stone’s throw away in Charles Hoey Park, there will be musical acts every day, beginning at lunchtime. Yoga In The Park will be conducted July 3, staring at 10:30 a.m. Folks might want to set their PVRs Wednesday nights because there will be tons of great music acts in City Square. Kicking it off on July 3 is the Big River Johnny Cash Tribute with Ryan McMahon. Just seven days later, the Ker-

etty Thompson is both a rookie and an experienced participant for the MS Bike Tour. Having taken part in the Fraser Valley event since 2008, she decided to do both events this year. With her good friend Karin Ingham as co-captain they created the local team Hillside Rockers, sponsored by Thompson’s business, Hillside Stone & Garden. Thompson has been riding for five years in honor of one of her best friends, Gail, who has been living with MS for close to 15 years. Like many bike participants, funding research is foremost on Thompson’s

mind. Recently her nephew was also diagnosed, making Thompson all the more determined to fight this disease. Thrown into the world of MS, her nephew has been amazed and supported by the dedication he has seen in the team of doctors and researchers who are working towards a cure for MS. In the year since his diagnosis he has become part of the enormous community of people with the disease who benefit from the extensive research and advancements being made. Thompson and Ingham have 11 new participants on their team who are eager to experience the two-day

The Scottish Society of the Monterey Peninsula will be holding the annual games in the county fairgrounds July 6 and 7. As guest band for the event, the Cowichan Pipes and Drums will be performing on the fairground central stage as well as at the Pebble Beach Golf Club. Although traditional

parade marches, jigs, reels and medleys are the mainstay of the band’s repertoire, the band has developed an enthusiastic following for the non-traditional ensemble pieces played in concert settings. MacKay said he was particularly impressed with the band’s rendition of popular music including the Lion Sleeps Tonight and Waltzing Matilda. These numbers incorporate pipes and drums as well as keyboards, electric bass, guitar, and drum kit. MacK ay says he expects the band will just “knock them flat in California.” Barley Jar, the Ceilidh folk band within the Cowichan Pipes, will also be entertaining festival goers from central stage. These four members of the pipe band play an array of Scottish, Irish and contemporary instrumental and vocal pieces both as a solo group and with the larger ensemble. For more than 30 years, the Cowichan Pipes and Drums have entertained and delighted crowds throughout British Columbia and the U.S. Pacific Northwest with its unique blend of traditional and contemporary interpretations of Celtic music. Originally founded as the Pipes and Drums of the Royal Canadian

Legion Branch #53 in Duncan, and the band has evolved into a nonprofit society of dedicated musicians serving the Warmland, as our local First Nations call this area. Pipe Major Dr. Gordon Pollock will lead the Cowichan contingent on its California escapade. Pollock has served as pipe major for the band over the last 10 years. Pollock, a practising dentist, is recognized as one of the most accomplished pipers on Vancouver Island. He has played in the Pipe Band World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland on two occasions as both a soloist and band member. Lead Drummer Bill Dingee will front the accomplished drum corp. Dingee has been the lead tip for the band since its inception. Recently, Bill represented the band in Scotland as a member of a Canadian Legion massed band summer tour. A highlight of the tour included a concert for Queen Elizabeth II. Members of the pipe b a n d a r e c u r r e n t ly involved in fundraising events throughout the Valley to cover portions of the travel and accommodation costs for the trip. Raffles and paid gigs in local restaurants and pubs are some of the activities band members are involved in.

Search and Rescue scaling Cobble Hill peak KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Mill Bay Marine Search and Rescue are holding a fundraiser this weekend. [SUBMITTED]

With the possible exception of Mantracker’s Terry Grant — who himself has a search and rescue background — there are few people safer to go hiking with than search and rescue volunteers. So there’s no danger involved in the Conquer Cobble Hill Hike & BBQ event this Sunday, a fundraiser for Mill Bay Volunteer Marine Search and Rescue. The event begins in the Cobblestone Pub parking lot at 4 p.m., where participants can meet their local marine SAR team and purchase tickets. From there, it’s a hike up Cobble Hill Mountain, where the fun begins.

“Once at the top they will be met by a marine SAR crew member who will pass each hiker three playing cards,” volunteer Dennis Chopko explained. “When you hike back down and return to the pub, dinner and drinks will be served and participants can peruse the silent auction tables. Then via a Texas hold’em deal we will award prizes for the best poker hand from the hike poker rally.” Tickets for the event are $20 and include a burger and beer, and prizes. All proceeds go toward helping the Mill Bay Marine Rescue Society keep the local waters safe. For more information, contact Dennis Chopko at 250-896-5188.

“This will allow users to enjoy a full length route on the mountain...” RILEY MCINTOSH, Cowichan Trail Stewarship Society

Group looks to become trailblazers ANDREA RONDEAU CITIZEN

The Cowichan Trail Stewardship Society wants to see the Cowichan Valley become a leader in the growing multi-million dollar industry of mountain bike tourism. To this end, they are working to develop and maintain authorized mixed-use trails in the working forests of the Cowichan Valley. Their first project to get underway is the construction of a mixed-use trail on Maple Mountain, for which they have received approval from the Municipality of North Cowichan. “This first sanctioned trail will reposition an existing mountain biking/hiking trail off of private property,” said Riley McIntosh in a press release. “This will allow users to enjoy a full length route on the mountain that is legal, maintained, and 100 per cent within the working municipal forest.” That’s not all. They’ve already got other projects in mind. “The next trail will hopefully be a climbing trail at a low gradient from the Osborne Bay Road access to the top of Maple Mountain, allowing users to enjoy the forest, lengthen the overall ride, and avoid the difficult grind of the municipal forest service road,” said McIntosh. “Another goal for CTSS is to rank, sign and map the hiking and biking trails in North Cowichan. This will allow visitors and locals alike to experience the many trails our Valley has to offer more easily.” To help them reach their goals the CTSS is hosting a fundraiser Thursday, July 4 at 7 p.m. at the Maple Bay Rowing Club. For a $20 entry fee attendees will get a beef or veggie burger, side salad and one wine, beer or non-alcoholic beverage. Along with the food CTSS will make a presentation outlining their current and future plans for Maple Mountain, and folks will have a chance to ask questions and provide feedback. Afterwards, there will be “a chance to win some swag” along with entertainment. With a fundraising goal of $10,000 for the evening, all other donations are also welcome. Proceeds will go towards the funding of the multi-use trail that’s under construction.

Community policing opens doors wearing their helmets, or helping in the community, walking on the proper side of the road. It’s all about noticing when they are doing something good. And the RCMP officers give out those tickets,” she said. Mounties go out looking for those kids. “They go out to skateparks and other places. It was interesting that Const. Kevin Hopkinson said the first time he went to the skatepark the kids wouldn’t go near him but after about the third time they all started coming up and saying hello. The purpose of that program is definitely building that relationship with the youth and the police,” Rosenthal said. “Local businesses have donated

LEXI BAINAS CITIZEN

The South End’s Community Policing program is celebrating the one year anniversary of its Mill Bay Centre office with a special event on Thursday, July 4 from 4-6 p.m. According to Julie Rosenthal, the centre’s program coordinator, there’s lots to be happy about. “We launched our Friendly Phones, where we call people who want to get a phone call every day. That’s been a great program, and just recently we’ve started our positive tickets program with the RCMP. “That started June 15 and there’s a draw Sept. 28. Kids are ticketed for doing something right, like

smaller prizes to give out when the kids get a ticket. And then we have major prizes, worth about a hundred dollars, that local businesses have donated and we’re going to have a draw for those out of the ones who have brought in their tickets.” So, South Cowichan residents, drop in on July 4. Board members and some of Community Policing’s volunteers will be on hand and you can enjoy coffee and treats as you share your ideas. “It’s just to talk to the community. We want to be open and talk with people to hear what they would like to have out of our community policing office and such. It’s basically a celebration,” Rosenthal said.

when the pheasants became wary of their approach, worked their way close to their prey. As the pheasants were used to grazing horses, the hunters simply used the animals (which soon learned what was expected of them) as shields, and shuffled closer until they were within range. Another ingenious hunter, he laughed, used an old piece of well cribbing as a Trojan Horse. The pheasants, unsuspecting, paid no heed — until too late. Pheasant hunting had almost fatal results for Jack Bothwell who served as Mr. Rithet’s horse trainer. While recycling shotgun cartridges by knocking out the spent charges with a sharp blow, he struck a live cartridge which discharged its load into his eye. It meant a two-hour rush to town by horse and buggy before Bothwell could be treated. But he lost the eye and, for years afterward, Mr. McMorran winced at how he’d casually removed the glass replacement from time to time. As indicated by Jack Bothwell’s occupation, the real reason for Broadmead’s being was not to raise wheat nor pheasants. Rather, it was Rithet’s love of horse breeding and racing that brought him to Victoria’s so-called Lake District where he could escape the cares and responsibilities of overseeing his business empire with his own sulky racetrack (situated on what’s now the southern perimeter of the Royal See Broadmead• page 23

Broadmead depended on horse-power From page 22 Oak Burial Park). â&#x20AC;&#x153;R.P.â&#x20AC;? took his racing so seriously, in fact, that he entered his animals in competition in San Francisco, sending them, their trainers and handlers to the Bay City by steamship. All of Broadmead, for that matter, depended upon horse-power for clearing the land, planting and harvesting the crops and for transportation. For young Mr. McMorran the weekly trip to town had been high adventure. First stop was Dick Brayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s livery stable where the team would be fed and stabled while the McMorrans went shopping, â&#x20AC;&#x153;maybe to Saundersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; big grocery store at the foot of Johnson [Street], or to Dixie H. Ross. Going home, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have little candle lamps on the buggy lighted to give clearance to the next buggy. That was a long enough trip for the horses in one day and of course we always walked them on the hills â&#x20AC;&#x201D; didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t chase the life out of them...â&#x20AC;? Horses also meant tragedy at Broadmead, such as the day that Aberdeen, the favourite mount of a friend of the Rithets, fell into a drainage ditch. Three days passed before he was found, by which time he was beyond saving despite Jack Bothwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s round-the-clock nursing. With time came the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cordwood Limited,â&#x20AC;? the Victoria & Sidney Railway. Throughout its construction the McMorran children had watched the work crews through the farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picket fence. As an added bonus, the construction crews left holes in the side of the road which, when

Doskocil, Kenneth George Allan July 6, 1958 - July 2. 2012

CHOW, Albert Kim Chow May 1st, 1964 – June 20th, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Albert. He was predeceased by his father Wai Hong ( Hank ) Chow in 2004. Lovingly remembered by his mother Kam Chui (Kim ) Chow; his daughter Trinity; his four siblings; Wanda ( Chuck ) Chow-Lindberg; Anda Chow; Roland ( Corinne ) Chow; Linda Chow. His nieces and nephews Thomas Chow, Kristen Lindberg, Garrett Chow ( Charis ) , Jonathon Chow, Kascia Chow, and Cameron Chow. Also lovingly remembered by many, many other relatives and friends. Albert was born and raise in the Cowichan Valley on May 1st, 1964 – the year of the Dragon - where he worked at the family store and graduated from high school. He travelled and worked at various jobs before settling back in the Cowichan Valley and eventually became the head chef at Kim Wah’s ( the family restaurant ). After Kim Wah’s he worked at various jobs and eventually got a position as a chef at the Sunridge Senior Complex on Bundock St. where he was employed up to his passing. He was also the proprietor of the Time Tunnel on York St. in Duncan – a video arcade and pool hall. This was a perfect match for his outgoing personality and it was there that he found his passion for billiards and became a selftaught cue maker. On Nov.19th, 2000 he became a father...his daughter Trinity was born - the light in his life. Albert loved to sing and could belt out tunes from all ranges of the rock music spectrum – from Bobby Darrin’s Beyond the Sea to Billy Idols White Wedding. He loved to cook and spent time with Family and Friends. He was generous to a fault and had a great sense of humour, and oh so quick to make friends...he saw the best in everyone. As a teen he was deeply involved in sports – participating in rugby, volleyball, track...just to name a few. As a young man he got heavily into cycling and worked in bike shops in Duncan and Vancouver. Albert will be sorely missed by his Family and friends. He has left a legacy of laughter and will never be forgotten. The Family of Albert would like to thank all the professionals who have helped them during this trying time. Many thanks to other Family members and Friends for all their thoughts and support. A viewing for Family and Friends will be held at Sands Funeral Chapel at 187 Trunk Rd., Duncan, B.C. on Friday June 28th, 2013 from 4pm to 7 pm. All are welcome. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Cowichan Community Centre Gymnasium, 2687 James St., Duncan, B.C. on Saturday July 6th from 1pm to 4pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Trust for Trinity Chow at the CIBC Branch in Duncan. Online condolences may be offered at www.sandsduncan.ca

Head stone will be placed on his grave on SATURDAY, JULY 6, 2013 at 2:00 pm at St. Ann’s Cemetery, Tzouhalem Rd., next to Providence Farm. All are welcome. 273422

They Say There is a Reason They say there is a reason, They say that time will heal But neither time nor reason, Will change the way I feel, For no-one knows the heartache, That lies behind our smiles, No one knows how many times, We have broken down and cried, We want to tell you something So there won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think of, But so hard to be without. Forever Remembered & Never Forgotten Love, Kerri, Dana, Jenny, Shannon, Toni & Families

Gold and Silver: ‘Dogs retrieve two cups “It has been an incredible season where the team has struggled, grown and finished strong and I could not be more proud.”

KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The Cowichan Bulldogs proved themselves one of the top organizations in the Greater Victoria Minor Football Association last weekend as they captured two league trophies and narrowly missed a third. The pee wee Cowichan Bulldogs used a huge fourth-quarter comeback to beat the Saanich Wolverines for the Gold Cup, and the pre-atom Bulldogs shut down the Nanaimo Lions to take their Silver Cup. The atom ’Dogs were nipped by the Peninsula Wildcats in their Silver Cup final. The Cowichan pee wees trailed Saanich 8-2 late in the Gold Cup game on Sunday, but used a pair of late touchdowns to pull ahead and stay there, winning 14-8 for this age group’s second Gold Cup in the last three years. “I have never seen a team show more heart and more determination this team here,” said pee wee head coach Trent Jones. “I know I speak for all the coaches when I say how proud I am of all the players for all the hard work they have put in this season and the seasons before it.” The final game marked the pee wee Bulldogs’ seventh straight victory as they dominated the league down the stretch. The Bulldogs started Sunday’s game in fine form, with a deep opening kick and big open-field tackle to put Saanich on their own 12-yard line to start, followed by an eight-yard loss and a safety on the third down. Both defences then hunkered down until late in the second quarter when the Wolverines scored to take a lead into halftime. The Bulldogs were not dismayed. “The team was extremely fired up at half time,” said Jones. “We knew that Saanich didn’t take the lead from us; we simply just gave it to them, but everyone left that locker room set on taking it back.” The Bulldogs started running and blocking better in the third quarter, but couldn’t get into the end zone. Late in the third, the Wolverines got to Cowichan’s 24-yard line where a Bulldogs defensive back made an interception that ended the drive and fired up his teammates. “You could really feel the momentum shift in our favor after that interception,” said Jones. “It was a big play that came at

the right time.” The Bulldogs instantly began to move the ball down the field and scored their first touchdown with seven minutes left to play, tying the score at 8-8. The Cowichan defence responded by forcing Saanich to

punt after just one first down, and three plays later, the Bulldogs went ahead 14-8 on a long touchdown run. The Wolverines completed back-to-back passes to get to Cowichan’s nine-yard line. Stalled after two downs, Saanich made one last pass, but had it batted out of the air in the end zone as the Bulldogs secured the cup. The pre-atom Bulldogs closed out their season last Saturday with a 15-0 win over the Nanaimo Lions in the Silver Cup final. “It has been an incredible season where the team has struggled, grown and finished strong and I could not be more proud,” said pre-atom head coach Devon Lawrence. Cowichan started scoring early, as Jack Napier-Ganley weaved his way to the end zone on the second play of the game. On the conver t, Treyton McCuaig-Jones followed a block by Quentin George to earn two extra points.

The defence was confused by some of Nanaimo’s trick plays, and the Lions were able to make a few gains, but Cowichan linebackers Kaylum Billings and Jaxson Jones tracked down their running backs and tackled them to prevent any damage. By the start of the third quarter, the Bulldogs defenders were onto the Lions’ tricks, and sacks by Brock Lamont and Cyrus Upshaw brought the ball back into Cowichan’s hands. On the offensive end, a block by Jeevan Nijjar helped McCuaigJones make his way into the end zone, and quarterback Aiden Lawrence connected with Napier-Ganley for a gain of 20 yards. In the fourth quarter, the Cowichan defence pushed the Lions into their own end zone and picked up the team’s second safety of the season. “The whole team put everything they had into the game and were able to walk away with the trophy,” said coach Lawrence. “Winning is not the emphasis in the spring development league, but the kids sure like to from time to time.” Having battled their way into their own Silver Cup final, the Cowichan atoms lost a close one 16-14 to Peninsula. Carter Price opened the scoring for the Bulldogs, using an outstanding block by Philip Schneider to break away on a 65-yard run, and with a successful convert, Cowichan led 8-0. On defence, Dylan Taylor and his fellow linemen, and cornerbacks Kilion VennRyan and TJ McCuaig-Jones prevented the determined Wildcats from scoring. Price was back in action in the second quarter, finishing off a sweep to the right with a last-ditch dive into the end zone. “I’ve always wanted to do that,” he reportedly said on the sidelines. Peninsula finally got the ball moving in the second half, using small gains to score a pair of touchdowns and pull ahead. “The kids played the best game yet and it was exciting football which had coaches and fans alike on edge,” said atom coach Jeff McDonald. “Every player left it all out on the field, and we could not be more proud of them.” Registration is now underway for the fall season, for players ages 9-18.

Kids come first in South Cowichan softball KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

Kids first, competition second. That’s how it has gone for nearly three decades of South Cowichan Youth Softball, where the goal has been to get kids participating more than winning. “We have an excellent all-volunteer executive, that puts the kids first, and a fabulous volunteer base,” SCYSA president Dalyce Waldner pointed out after last Saturday’s season wrap-up festivities. “We also have wonderful umpires that are all affiliated with the league in one way or another — players, aged-out players, parents, or parents of aged out players.” The SCYSA was founded nearly 30 years ago by a group of parents in the area that wanted their kids to have a place to play ball. Most players still come from the South Cowichan area, although there are families that make the trip from Duncan. All teams are co-ed, with six divisions — three competitive and three non-competitive — for players between five and 19. “No one is left behind because of their ability,” said Waldner. “Teams are created as equally as possible. No try-outs or travelling.” From ages five to nine, the kids learn the basics of the sport as they play games. In the intermediate (10-12) seniors (13-15) and majors (16-19) divisions, games become more competitive. “Scores are kept, umpires are provided, and they have roundrobin knock outs at the end of the season,” Waldner related. On the final day of play, teams battle for gold and silver in each division, and one team is sin-

“No one is left behind because of their ability. Teams are created as equally as possible.” DALYCE WALDNER, SCYSA president

gled out for the sportsmanship award. “We focus on sportsmanship and fun, however the older three divisions can become quite competitive,” Waldner acknowledged. “Everyone wants to win — we just want to see them win and lose gracefully.” This year’s winners in the majors were Shawnigan Jet Ski, who took gold, and South Cowichan Storage, who claimed silver as well as the sportsmanship award. In the seniors, Mill Bay Storage won gold, Duncan Sports Traders took silver, and Drillwell Enterprises received the sportsmanship award. In the intermediate division, Mill Bay 2 for 1 Pizza took both gold and the sportsmanship award, while Rusticana Coffee finished with silver. “It’s so neat to see kids that are 16 to 19 hanging out at the ball field, playing with and competing against their friends on a Friday night,” said Waldner. “There’s a lot of other places these 50 kids could be, but they choose to be here. It’s neat sometimes to see five or six kids leaving the ball field for their cars together, all in different colour jerseys. Our league is unique, I’m not sure there’s another one like it anywhere on the island.” Visit the SCYSA website at southcowichanyouthsoftball.ca for more information.

Derby takes over Fuller Lake COWICHAN CONNECTION: Local

skaters bolster Dames’ roster KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

With several of the players on both their senior and junior roller derby teams hailing from the Cowichan Valley, and practices taking place once a week at Fuller Lake Arena, it only made sense for Nanaimo’s Brass Knuckle Derby Dames to showcase their sport in the region. The result was the Candy Apple Massacre at Fuller Lake on June 15. Nanaimo’s junior team, the Candy Crushers, took on Victoria’s Rotten Apples, followed by a senior bout between the Brass Knuckle Derby Dames and the Alberni Valley Roller Girls. “There have been other teams in Nanaimo, but I believe we’re the first to expand down there [to the Cowichan Valley],” said Theresa Yuha, who competes for the Derby Dames under the moniker Miss Dior Chance. “I would say we have 10 players on our roster from the Duncan/Cowichan area, and on our juniors, about one third of their roster comes from there as well. We have about 60 people involved in our organization, and a good third of them come from the south.” There had been talk of creating a Cowichan-specific team, but at the same time, the Derby Dames were looking to expand, and it made perfect sense

for the groups to join forces. “There’s been a lot of interest [in the Duncan area],” said Yuha. “No matter where we go, when people see us in our gear, they’re asking about us.” There will always be room for more players, with both the Brass Knuckle Derby Dames and Candy Crushers looking at adding teams at different levels. For more information, visit their Facebook page (facebook.com/BrassKnuckleDerbyDames) or their website (BrassKnuckleDerbyDames.com). The team is planning a scrimmage at the Cowichan Exhibition Grounds on Aug. 11, which could turn into a full-on bout, in which case it will be relocated to Fuller Lake. They also plan to skate in the Summer Festival Parade in Duncan on July 13, where they will have flyers and other information.

Canadian success rooted in Cowichan TRADITION CONTINUES:

Present and future of national program meet up at local pitch KEVIN ROTHBAUER CITIZEN

The present — and very likely the future — of Cowichan’s contributions to the Canadian men’s rugby program came together at the pitch on Herd Road for a kicking session on Tuesday. Matt Evans, who recently played for Canada’s senior team at the Pacific Nations Cup; Patrick Kay, who captained the national U20 side in the Junior World Rugby Trophy tournament in May and June; and Cam Hall, who appears to be on track for the national program, all gathered at Piggie Park to practice kicking with coach Gord McGeachy. “Being on the field with guys like Matt and Pat is huge, because they have international experience and it shows me where I need to be with my game if I want to excel with rugby and take my rugby career to the next level,” said Hall. “Any time I can get coaching from those guys, it’s a huge honour and

even getting help from my school and club coach Gord McGeachy is great because he’s been a huge help in my improvement within the past four or five months.” A recent graduate of Ladysmith Secondary School, Hall has played for the provincial elite youth team at the Las Vegas sevens tournament, and will be back with the squad at the Victoria Sevens next month. He was named to the Commissioner’s XV at the provincial high school AA tournament. He is well on pace to follow Kay to the U20 side. “My goal for rugby is to be getting into the U20 Canada team in two years and to take rugby as far as I possibly can,” he said “Rugby is what I live for and what I hope to be involved in for the rest of my life.” As captain, Kay had a key role in guiding Canada to a strong second-place finish at the Junior World Rugby Trophy tournament in Chile, where their only defeat came against Italy in the final. “In my experience, this year’s U20 national team has been the most energetic on and off the field,” he said. “Everyone got on with each other very well and that definitely showed when we performed. In Chile we played with much swagger up until the final, where I think nerves may have gotten the best of us alongside a few crucial mistakes. Personally I felt fairly good about the team’s performance; it was an honour to captain such a successful group.” There are always ups and downs with the national team, Kay noted, but the team has been riding high lately, with two wins over the U.S. in Minnesota, and victories over Tonga, Japan and Uruguay at the

experience, Kay will head to Colombia this summer for the World Games as part of a national development sevens side, and he is also hoping to get into some World Cup qualifying games with the senior XV, although he acknowledges that the competition for those roster spots is very strong. As with Hall, Kay appreciated having someone around with Evans’s experience. “Having Matt out around the club does help,” he said. “His experience playing for the national team as well as professionally will help me strive to where I want to be.” Like Kay’s U20 side, Evans’s senior team placed second in a field of five respected rugby countries at the Pacific Nations Cup, going

3-1 in round robin play. Canada did beat Fiji, the eventual champions, but suffered their only loss against Japan. “We had a good start to it, but it was disappointing to lose to Japan,” said Evans. “We had some good results against the U.S., Fiji and Tonga” Evans plans to be in the lineup for Canada’s World Cup qualifier series with the U.S. in August. A win in the two-game, aggregate points series would put Canada in the 2015 World Cup, while a loss would force another series, most likely against Uruguay. “There are only two spots for the Americas,” he noted. “If we win against the U.S., we’ll be in the first pool, which is more desirable for us to play in.” Between now and then, Evans will head to England to play his third season of professional rugby for the Cornish Pirates. “It should be good,” he said. “We had an okay season last year, and we’re looking to get better this coming season.” Having followed Kay’s progress in Chile, Evans was excited to hit the field with the two up-and-comers. “I thought Canada did great, and Pat’s performance was great,” he said. “With him as captain, it was nice to see Valley boys getting recognition.” Evans called Hall a “great young talent.” “He could have a bright future if he keeps going,” he said. Although he won’t be back in the Valley long, Evans was grateful for the chance to hit the club’s pitch on Tuesday. “It was great to be back at the club,” he said. “It’s nice to be back in the community I grew up in. I’m close to the club, and they’ve always supported me.”
