WORLD OF PAYNE

AFTER THE FIRST choice was spurned by the Department of National Defence, the Vancouver Island Health Authority is now looking at another Ryan Road location for a Comox Valley hospital. PHOTO COURTESY GOOGLE MAPS

If at first you don’t succeed, try another site Scott Stanfield Record Staff

Proponents of a regional hospital to be based out of the Comox Valley are considering option No. 2 near North Island College because the Department of National Defence has nixed the first choice of sites at Ryan Road across from Crown Isle. In January, the Vancouver Island Health Authority announced its preferred location for the new hospital. However, the Ryan Road site across from Crown Isle falls within an area about four kilometres in radius around CFB Comox and the airport that restricts the height of structures to fewer than nine metres, deeming the location unsuitable for a hospital, VIHA announced this week. DND is responsible for zoning around the Comox Valley Airport because it is classified as a

New location near college military aerodrome, according to Transport Canada. “The problem in many ways has effectively gone away,” 19 Wing Cmdr. Col. Jim Benninger said. “There’s certain zones around an airfield to ensure safe and effective ops of military and civilian aircraft. Like any fence, you put it somewhere, and it happened that the first site was within our outer limit and the second site is not.” Benninger agrees it is peculiar the discrepancy was not figured out before VIHA chose the first site. Since March, the regional health authority had been trying to secure a variance on the height restriction but was informed last week that DND denied the request. “It’s also funny that there are some structures that were built

that were issued contrary to the title deed on the land and building permits issued by the municipality,” Benninger said, noting nearby buildings that exceed the nine-metre limit. “Ultimately it’s all about safety,” he said. A call to Silverado Land Corp. at Crown Isle were not returned. Courtenay Mayor Greg Phelps notes the possible “trickledown” effects in areas like Crown Isle and the Raven Project, where the city had pre-zoned for eight-storey developments. “We would have to look at what impacts that would have on all of these,” Phelps said. Despite the setback, VIHA expects preliminary work, including designs, will be transferrable to a new location at the south side of Lerwick Road near Ryan

Road, about one kilometre from the first site. “There are no height restrictions at the property adjacent to NIC,” VIHA communications officer Val Wilson said. The project is expected to continue on schedule. “I don’t see this as any sort of setback,” said Phelps, who notes VIHA hired a consultant team to help with site selection. “It’s something that could happen in any sort of real estate deal.” College president/CEO Dr. Jan Lindsay and VIHA president/CEO Howard Waldner met Tuesday to discuss the potential use of land. The budget for the North Island Hospitals business case is $3 million. VIHA had considered 22 possible hospital locations in Cumberland, Courtenay and Comox before shortlisting to six sites. VIHA then shortlisted three sites

on Ryan Road in the Crown Isle/NIC area. “They were all looked at based on a set of criteria,” Wilson said. The criteria included proximity to the population, including North Island residents; access to transportation and

transit routes; financial considerations and the size of the site. The first location included 15 acres with an option on a further five acres to allow for growth of services at the hospital. The proximity to the college would enable students

to receive hands-on training in a hospital environment. A selection committee also likes the Ryan Road site for its accessibility from Campbell River and the North Island through either the Old Island Highway or the Inland

Island Highway via the Dove Creek, Piercy Road or Comox Valley Parkway exits. The new regional facility is part of a twohospital project that includes a new hospital in Campbell River. The latter will provide emergency service in

Cumberland mayor not satisfied Scott Stanfield Record Staff

Cumberland Mayor Fred Bates feels the second proposed location for a regional hospital is no better than the first. “That’s the worst traffic centre in the Comox Valley,” said Bates, who suggests the Cumberland side of the river would be more suitable than the peninsula, from a patient’s standpoint. “I’m concerned that they’re making yet another move to pick a site. Have they in fact concluded that they can build a helicopter site there before they make these decisions? “They seem bent on having

the location near Crown Isle, regardless of appropriateness,” Bates added. “I can’t assume anything but political expedience when I don’t hear them respond to any of our (Cumberland council) questions with an answer ... I’d be happy if they explained to me why I’m wrong.” Bates and council have asked VIHA to explain the rationale used to determine the location for a new hospital. “We’ve never been even acknowledged that we ask VIHA to tell us why they selected these sites,” Bates said. “The Health Ministry has never responded, neither has VIHA.”

He said there are “some good sites” for a regional hospital north of Cumberland in Courtenay at the bottom of Mount Washington. “This isn’t a Courtenay-Cumberland issue,” Bates said. “I have a number of questions I’d like to ask them. They said they were aware of air restrictions, but confident they could negotiate that away. “My question is then why were they and the Health Minister willing to attempt to negotiate away a safety regulation in the name of selecting a site, which they remain unwilling to share their rationale for choosreporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com ing?”

and around Campbell River. Patients requiring a transfer will be transported to the Valley, Victoria or Vancouver. The BC Government Project Board overseeing the North Island Hospitals Project approved a team of 14 consultants to develop a business plan for both hospitals. To date, about $1.1 million has been spent on their work. “The work that has been done to date is easily portable to a new site,” Wilson said.

To ensure the NIC site meets their needs, VIHA will undertake additional work such as surveying, geotechnical

and civil engineering analysis, and traffic analysis, expected to cost less than $50,000. reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

The 2011 Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is scheduled to roll through the Comox Valley on Sept. 28. But it paid a surprise, early visit to a local couple on July 17. One of the 22 cyclists on the fundraising tour is Victoria police constable Alvin Deo, who is married to the daughter of Mike and Louise Jackson of Courtenay. “We knew (the team) had a practice ride going up Mount Washington on Sunday,” said Louise, adding their son-in-law (who was in town with his wife and three children) had indicated the riders would probably use the Jackson’s house on Comox Avenue after the ride to change clothes before heading to Crown Isle for lunch.

I’ve never let anything get me down, and I won’t,” added Mike, who turned 70 in June. Along with the uplifting Tour de Rock visit, St. Joseph’s General Hospital has also helped Mike maintain his positive outlook. “I should tell you how excellent the nursing care for me has been at St. Joe’s. It’s been absolutely outstanding at every level. I had horrendous complications and they were amazing.” The Tour de Rock, which raises funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research and programs, begins Sept. 24 in Port Alice and ends Oct. 7 in Victoria. Deo’s goal is to raise $15,000, and Mike urges people to donate to the cause by calling 250-5922244 or visiting www.copsforcancer.ca.

An unidentified person from the Comox Valley is among 37 people who have turned themselves in after the Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver. Thirty males and seven females could face charges that include participating in a riot, assault, assaulting a peace officer, mischief, break and enter, theft, robbery, arson, weapons possession and possession of stolen property. Besides revealing the other two Vancouver Island suspects among the 37 are from Victoria and Tofino, the Integrated Riot Investigation Team shared some interesting statistics in a news release: • 202 recorded incidents with anywhere from one to 300 suspects for each; • 4,300 e-mail tips to date; • 1,700 e-mails requiring investigation; • 1,500 video hours to review; • 15,000 images; • 3,000 individual video data files; • 431 tasks assigned for follow-up investigators currently, including tips. IRIT says it’s preparing charges against those who have come forward. “This is expected to be a lengthy and complex process as investigators work to ensure the essential elements of the offences are met in order to obtain a successful conviction,” adds IRIT.

The investigative team is in place and comprised of 50 police officer and civilian experts from around the region. There are many challenges in this investigation, not the least of which is the sheer amount of evidence and information that must be painstakingly analyzed to ensure a complete and thorough investigation. The IRIT team says it has catalogued hundreds of images of people that will be closely examined. Once properly processed as evidence, these images will be released to the public in due course to assist investigators in identifying suspects. Anyone with photos or video not yet submitted is asked to make copies of them and burn them to a CD or DVD. It is important to keep the memory card that contains these pictures or videos, in case they need to be examined further. If the pictures or videos are stored on a cell phone, please do not delete them. Once you have done this, you’re asked to advise IRIT or send them to riot@vpd. ca.

Lawyer weighing in on election sign debate Erin Haluschak Record Staff

GEORGE ALFRED JONES

Public inquest ordered Record Staff A public inquest will be held into the death of a Courtenay man in Comox Valley RCMP cells in 2009, the B.C. Coroners Service said this week. George Alfred Jones, 40, died after going into medical distress on Jan. 18, 2009, while detained in police cells. He was rushed to St. Joseph’s General Hospital in Comox, where he died the next day. Comox Valley RCMP said at the time that Jones was taken into custody after two people called 911 to say a man was lying on the street near the RCMP detachment. At the time, the man was believed to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Within half an hour of being in a cell, it was determined he needed medical attention. Presiding coroner Matthew Brown and a jury will hear evidence from those involved and make recommendations on whether the death could have been prevented. The inquest date has not yet been announced.

The debate over election signs on public property in Comox is getting a fresh perspective, as council agreed Wednesday to extend an invitation to a Courtenay-based lawyer who argues banning election signs is unconstitutional. Council debated a recommendation to the Comox sign bylaw to allow political signs along boulevards fronting private property only, and prohibit political signs at all other public locations. Coun. Tom Grant told council he was contacted by Clive Ansley, a lawyer who represented Falun Gong practitioners in Vancouver. Grant read a letter from Ansley, which stated the practitioners refused to dismantle structures that carried

Car Free Sunday being proposed for Comox Valley Lindsay Chung Record Staff

If the Comox Valley can put on a big multiday event like Vancouver Island MusicFest with more than 1,000 volunteers, Andrew Gower thinks the Valley can close some streets for four hours on a Sunday afternoon. Gower, who is with the non-profit group Imagine Comox Valley, brought the idea for Car Free Sunday to Courtenay council Monday. The event is being proposed for Sept. 25 between 1 and 5 p.m. “It’s an initiative that was born out of the presentations Gil Peñalosa gave recently where he came to town ... about his ideas about more livable communities, really centred around bicycles and centered around nonvehicle transportation,” said Gower.

and Cumberland for cycling, rollberblading, walking, running, riding scooters — anything except driving. “The loops chosen are mostly flat terrain to make them easily accessible to all sorts of people, all sorts of ages,” he said. “Gil Peñalosa talked about eight to 80, making your city wonderful for people aged eight to 80, and that’s what we’re aiming this event at.” The proposed Courtenay route starts on Fifth Street, then goes along Fitzgerald, up 26th Street and along Willemar Avenue. “What this route does is it connects downtown — of course we’ll close the (Fifth Street) bridge again

How much sense does it make ❝ to have to drive your car to a car-free event? Andrew Gower ❞ because that was wonderful on Canada Day — to Simms Park, to the shopping mall, so you’ve got destinations for people to go,” said Gower. “You’ve even got another park right in the middle at the roundabout.” Gower, a civil engineer by day, has identified some traffic issues that need to be addressed, including busy intersections he feels would need to remain flow-through for vehicular traffic. “This route also corresponds with a bit

of a planning exercise that was done by Tom Dishlevoy and a team of local consultants where we looked at how we can make the community livable, and what this route offers is a huge portion of the community is within three blocks of the route,” said Gower. “People can very easily get to it. “Some com-

ments I’ve received are, ‘Why don’t we make it downtown and focus on downtown?’ and I ask the question, ‘How much sense does it make to have to drive your car to a car-free event?’ This way, you avoid that issue completely.” Gower also went over the proposed Comox route, which connects downtown to the Comox Recreation Centre, and the Cumberland route, which he said councillors liked so much, they wanted to make it bigger.

“This can be done,” he said. “The logistics aren’t that complicated, and it’s only for four hours.” Imagine Comox Valley would co-ordinate the volunteers, marketing, events and activities and the other non-profits, and Gower says local governments would hopefully provide sponsorship — mostly in–kind —outreach to citizens and organizations and traffic planning and co-ordination. While a budget hasn’t been worked out, Gower told council

the event would probably cost no more than $10,000 for all three communities. The Comox Valley Cycling Task Force has set aside $2,600, and Gower said he is confident that, with some sponsorship, they can fill in the gaps. Gower is a director with the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce, and he told council the Chamber has already endorsed the event. A Facebook event page has been created for the proposed event. writer@comoxvalleyrecord.com

‘Hiccup’ forces another Comox OCP public hearing Subdivision lot sizes remain point of contention Erin Haluschak Record Staff

With a unanimous vote, Comox council passed third reading of the Official Community Plan Wednesday, although not without a hiccup. Bylaw 1684 (Comox zoning bylaw amendment no. 56) — the minimum parcel size for subdivision of land in the Point Holmes/ Cape Lazo area — was defeated with a revised motion setting the minimum parcel size at 0.5 hectares passing, giving way for another public hearing. The original proposed bylaw suggested a minimum parcel size of 0.4 ha with development cost charges to pay for improvements to the road and general community area. Prior to the close vote, Coun. Patti Fletcher stated she would not vote in favour of the bylaw, as she preferred to stay with the original 0.8 ha. Coun. Russ Arnott

RUSS ARNOTT

PATTI FLETCHER

agreed to not vote in favour, but added he was comfortable with a compromise in size. “We talked a while ago at 0.8 and then we talked about going to 0.5, and I felt that it was a bit of compromise, and I was comfortable with that and appreciate the fragile environment that we have there and also appreciate the need for some people to do a little subdivision in there to help pay some taxes,” he said. “I don’t feel comfortable going to 0.4 with some (DCC) charges. I think it may be difficult to administer right now. I’m comfortable with staying at 0.5.” Concerned with protecting the fragile Garry oak habitat in the area, Coun. Marcia Turner said she could

not support the motion as it stands. “I was amenable when the discussion first took place to going to the 0.5. I am particularly interested in the town pursuing such things as conservation incentives. However, if we do a blanket designation to 0.4, we’ve given up one of the tools that we have in our toolkit to perhaps achieve the conservation of that extremely important Garry oak ecosystem, and for that reason alone, I can’t

support it,” she noted. “It’s kind of like we’re putting up a sign saying zoning for sale in Point Holmes at $5,000 a lot.” Coun. Ken Grant agreed with Coun. Tom Grant, noting that 0.4 hectares is equal to one acre. “We’re not talking about small pieces of land here. An acre is a lot of property. We’re not talking about creating these piddly little lots here. To have seven new one-acre lots is hardly a burden and I find it difficult to see the difference between the 0.5 and 0.4 from that point of view,” he said. “I feel that with our new OCP ... that going to 0.4 would not be a problem, but doesn’t appear to be enough support around here,” added Mayor Paul Ives. “Essentially if we go back to 0.5 ... we’ll go back to another pub-

lic hearing, and probably not hear anything new.” When brought to a vote, Tom Grant, Ken Grant and Ives voted

in favour of the amendment, and as it was defeated, it was rescinded to second reading. Coun. Arnott then proposed the change

that the parcel area shall not be fewer than 5,000 square metres, which was supported by Turner, Ives and Hugh MacKinnon. Because of the change and new motion, a public hearing for the bylaw is scheduled for Aug. 17 at 7 p.m. at the d’Esterre House. photos@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Vanier latest locally to harness sun Solar panels will help school to save on its heating expenses Record Staff Last month, Georges P. Vanier Secondary School became the latest Comox Valley school to harness the power of the sun. Vanier received a $20,000 grant from SolarBC to purchase and install solar panels. “As both a graduate and former teacher at Vanier, I know this will be more than just a learning opportunity for the students — it’s going to benefit our entire community for years to come,” Comox Valley MLA Don McRae said in a news release. Vanier becomes the fourth school in the Comox Valley to use solar power, as Huband Park Elementary School, Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School and Highland Secondary School have also started using solar panels

this year. SolarBC is providing a total of $220,000 to 11 schools across B.C. — $20,000 each — to purchase solar panels. In total, the 11 schools will generate about 29,500 kilowatt hours of electricity per

year from solar power — about enough energy to power three homes per year, according to the release. The 11 schools will save about 712 tonnes per year in greenhouse gas emissions, which is equivalent to tak-

ing 140 cars off of B.C. roads, it noted. There are now 58 solar schools in B.C. — including 45 that have solar hot water and four schools that already have solar power through SolarBC grants.

If a customer is not home, they will leave a door hanger to notify that a meter has been installed on the property. “We do try and be proactive about the whole thing,” Mayo said, noting “smart meters” are able to store consumption history. According to the CVRD, water metering is an effective measure for reducing water demand. The district is working on a billing strategy to determine rate structures and frequency of bills. “We have to project what the reduction and consumption will be, and how that’s going to have an impact on the budget

for the areas,” said Mayo, noting customers typically have an allotment with the base rate. “Consumption over that is based on the cubic meter after that volume.” Once most of the 1,500 meters are installed, the CVRD will test the equipment to ensure it is functioning properly and “integrating with our financial software,” Mayo said. “We look at each install after it’s completed to see if there are leaks in the system. We have found quite a few residential leaks.” For more information, visit www. comoxvalleyrd.ca/ metering. reporter@comoxvalleyrecord.com

The regional district expects to install about 900 water meters in local service areas by earlySeptember. In December, after the CVRD board approved a $1.1million contract to Surrey outfit Corix Utilities, the district had expected to install about 1,500 residential meters in the Arden, England Road, Greaves Crescent, Marsden/ Camco and Comox Valley water service areas in the first half of the year. “It took a little while to get the tender out, that’s why it’s a little later than expected,” said Kerry Mayo, CVRD manager of water services. “It’s a fairly complex tender because there’s a lot of unknowns. We try and keep as much of the control as we can to keep the costs in line.” The contractor hand digs each meter and replaces any sod that has been cut. “We’ve had lots of compliments about the installs,” Mayo said, noting the process can be complicated by varying depths of meters and different locations such as driveways. Customers have been given a week’s notice of an area to be metered. On the day of an install, workers

Union Bay pondered incorporation Every Friday we feature Valley history taken from our back issues. Five years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: Union Bay residents awaited word about a possible referendum on incorporation proposed for the fall, recommended by the community’s restructuring committee. The area is part of the regional district’s Area A. Incorporation of the 1,300-resident community had been mulled over for years. It garnered serious consideration when the Ministry of Transportation said it would

exempt a Union Bay municipality from maintenance costs of the highway. Ten years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: A local canine rescue organization thanked the community for helping save 57 tiny, neglected poodles. Courtenay’s Beverly Badke of the KaLuMa Canid Rescue and Assistance Association said her phone was ringing off the hook with offers from people willing to help the dogs. Donations of food, blankets and toys poured in. “We have enough

A LOOK BACK

SCOTT

STANFIELD blankets to last us for years,” Badke said. Fifteen years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: A few feet of water pipe would likely cure chronic health problems for two boys who live on Anderton Road, according to their mother. Shelton Watson, four, and his four-month-old brother Clinton suffered chronic fever, vomiting, weight loss and diar-

rhea because their well was polluted, Trish Watson said. “We know it’s the water because when they’re away from home it clears up in four days,” said Watson, whose home was among 15 houses approved for water service by the regional board. Twenty years ago this week in the Comox Valley Record: Trash in the forest around the Pidgeon Lake dump will result from tipping fees at the refuse site, a Weldwood spokesman feared. A minimum $5 fee would prompt people to leave refuse on nearby Weldwood land, Gerry

McClintock predicted. “We already have piles of garbage on most of the side roads...have you any plans to police the surrounding area?” he said in a letter to the regional district board. There were no such plans. Instead, the district relies on the public to report illegal dumpers and looks for clues in the trash they leave.

Regional board dissatisfied with waste system Kristen Douglas Black Press

CAMPBELL RIVER — A separate solid waste system is not necessary, says the Strathcona Regional District. That’s despite regional board members’ dissatisfaction with the current system, shared with the Comox Valley. The regional district’s solid waste services are administered by the joint ComoxStrathcona regional solid waste service. But recently the Strathcona Regional District, which serves the Campbell River area, looked into the feasibility of pulling out of the existing service, which is administered by the Comox Valley Regional District. A report to the regional district’s Committee of the Whole on June 23, notes the regional district board’s concern about the current arrangement raised at a Nov. 25 meeting held incamera, where media and the public are not

allowed to attend. Brian Reardon, the regional district’s chief administrative officer, wrote in his report that the board asked staff to look into the feasibility of creating a separate solid waste function, based on a number of concerns from the board about the Comox-Strathcona regional solid waste service. “Everything from a lack of information on the budget process, to key staff members not being available to board members, to a lack of openness and transparency, and to a perception of a Comox Valley-centric service with respect to advertising and publications,” Reardon wrote. But Campbell River city councillor Roy Grant, who also sits on the regional district board, said he wasn’t aware of those concerns and stressed that too much shouldn’t be read into the regional district’s actions. He said the district was just trying to be thorough and looking for potential cost sav-

Bus ridership up in Comox Valley Bus ridership in the Comox Valley shot up 17 per cent from the previous year, BC Transit said in its 2010/11 annual report, which detailed another record-breaking year. Other increases were recorded in Fort St. John (26 per cent), Whistler (19 per cent), Prince George (16 per cent), Central Fraser Valley (12 per cent), Squamish (10 per cent), Kelowna (nine per cent), and Kamloops (eight per cent). Overall ridership in B.C. increased five per cent from the previous year to 51.2 million trips. “BC Transit’s continued focus on delivering efficient transit to the communities we serve resulted in operating costs that were eight to 11 per cent lower and ridership per hour that was five to nine per cent higher than the average of similarsized systems across the country,” said Kevin Mahoney, chair of the BC Transit board of directors. As of March 31, 2011, BC Transit served over 1.5 million British Columbians. With

1,028 vehicles, BC Transit has the 17th largest fleet in North America. The cost to provide service across 81 systems in British Columbia last year was $249.443 million. To view the 2010/11 annual report and learn more about BC Transit, visit www. bctransit.com. — BC Transit

ings. “We’re looking at it on the mild side,” said Grant. “We felt it was incumbent on us to at least check if it would be more cost-efficient if we operated a solid waste site on our own. I think it’s our responsibility, if there’s any cost savings to pass on to the taxpayer, to at least research those.”

Grant said he doesn’t believe the regional district will take any further action on pursuing its own solid waste service. When the former Comox-Strathcona Regional District was dissolved in February 2008, the province’s rationale for creating an extra-territorial solid waste manage-

RCMP tips cap to auxiliary cops Record Staff The Comox Valley RCMP has recognized its auxiliary members for their volunteer work and community involvement. In June, the Comox Valley RCMP held an awards ceremony to recognize the contributions auxiliary members make to public safety and policing in the Comox Valley, Insp. Tom Gray noted in his monthly policing report to Courtenay council. Auxiliary Consts. Amron Russell, Rick Gaiga, Dave Mellin and Bill Borland were honoured with the Ultimate Volunteer award for each contributing more than 500 hours of volunteer work to the program in 2010. Gray also highlighted the community spirit shown by auxiliary constables when they were involved in the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life fundraiser for cancer research last month.

Hepatitis facts spreading World Hepatitis Day is being marked around the world on July 28 to raise public awareness about hepatitis B and C, two forms of life-threatening liver disease. Today, approximately 500 million people — one in 12 worldwide — are infected with chronic viral hepatitis B or C. In Canada, an estimated 600,000 people have hepatitis, with many unaware of their status. Mayor and council have declared July 28 World Hepatitis Day in Courtenay. To mark the day, AIDS Vancouver Island (AVI), in conjunction with the Hepatitis C Peer Education Group, will host a health fair and barbeque at Simms Millennium Park on Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All are welcome. There will be complimentary food and a variety of interactive displays. The goal of the event is to provide information about the importance of being tested for hepatitis, to provide information about traditional and complementary treatments, to provide hope for those living with hepatitis, and to remember individuals who have died due to hepatitis. “It is important to mark World Hepatitis Day and the fact that approximately one in 12 people worldwide are infected with viral hepatitis — that’s over 500 million people — and the majority does not know,” said Jeanette Reinhardt, health promotion worker at AVI. “While rates in Canada are not as high as global figures, British Columbia boasts hepatitis C rates that are much higher than the national average.” The theme for this first official WHOsponsored World Hepatitis Day is “Hepatitis affects everyone, everywhere. Know it. Confront it,” highlighting the huge reach of this epidemic, the importance of getting informed and the need to use that information to tackle the stigma that has kept this epidemic so silent. Hepatitis C is the most common chronic blood-borne virus in North America. According to the BC Centre for Disease Control, rates of hepatitis C in British Columbia are higher

On North Vancouver Island, this rate is even higher at 76.6 cases per 100,000. The Canadian rates for 2009 were 36.7 per 100,000. The number of acute hepatitis

B cases identified in B.C. has continued to decline, keeping below the national rate since 2002. “Yet, hepatitis can be prevented and there are many services available to support people with hepatitis. Getting tested is the

first step in confronting the disease,” said Reinhardt. For more information about hepatitis or this event, contact Jeanette Reinhardt of AIDS Vancouver Island at 250-338-7400. — AIDS Vancouver Island

Samara makes history

JEREMY LEETE FROM the Comox Valley submitted this photo to last year’s Wildlife-In-Focus photo contest.

SPCA photo contest open now The annual BC SPCA Wildlife-In-Focus photography contest is now open and photos submitted by Aug. 15 will be considered for a book by Vancouver author Nicholas Read. City Critters: Living Wild in the Urban Jungle, from Orca Book Publishers, will be a full colour children’s book about the urban wildlife who call North America home. All other photos for the contest can be submitted until Sept. 30. Last year’s Wildlife-In-Focus contest entries are also being considered for publication in City Critters. Prizes will be awarded for the top three photos in each of two categories: Wild Settings and Backyard Habitats. The contest is open to all adult (age 14 years and up) backyard and amateur photographers residing in B.C. “We were thrilled to have the publisher review our contest photos last year, but to have another opportunity to include even more pictures from

B.C.’s backyard and amateur photographers is exciting,” says Sara Dubois, manager of wildlife services for the BC SPCA. Read co-authored The Salmon Bears: Giants of the Great Bear Rainforest and The Sea Wolves: Living Wild in the Great Bear Rainforest with Ian McAllister, both from Orca Book Publishers. “We’re very happy that Nicholas has asked to review this year’s early photo contest entries again,” says Dubois. “It’s a testament to the cali-

bre of photos that are entered.” The 2011 WildlifeIn-Focus photography contest is a fundraiser for Wild ARC, the BC SPCA’s wildlife rehabilitation facility on Vancouver Island. Wild ARC cares for over 1,800 orphaned and injured wild animals a year. Learn more about this year’s contest and see winners from the 2010 contest at spca. bc.ca/wildlife-in-focus.

When David Fletcher was invested in the Order of St. John by chancellor F. Richard Bruce, he stood with his dog Samara by his side. This is the first time in the 19 years of the Therapy Dog Program that a dog has been present at the National Investiture in Ottawa – and the honour went to a dog from the Comox Valley. Samara has accumulated over 1,500 hours of community service with the elderly, special-needs children, the Reading Tails program and at public events. She has worked with Fletcher for nine of the 12 years he has been with St. John Ambulance. Samara’s presence at the event was facilitated by the efforts of MP John Duncan and Speaker of the Senate Noel Kinsella, who together cut through red tape and moved the Ottawa bureaucracy to set a precedent for future Investitures. — St. John Ambulance

There is a slight program change for this event — the guide will be Alison Maingon, a retired archeologist and member of the Comox Valley Naturalists Society, who has hiked in Strathcona Park for over 25 years. Her talk and walk titled Plantlife in Paradise Meadows will be an introduction to the flora of a sub-alpine ecosystem and some of their uses. “My passion for plants, cultivated and wild, has been lifelong,” says Alison, “and I am especially interested in how cultures, ancient and modern, have made use of them.” Guided nature walks and talks are free, though dona-

We’re now in our third year in organizing this event and believe this year’s program, with some new changes, will be our best yet.” On Aug. 6, the Show and Shine will be held on Dunsmuir Avenue. Traffic from First Street to Fourth Street will be closed to vehicle traffic, except motorcycles and spectators for the Show and Shine.

Fifth of sixth stages tough when you want to change Q: Over the past couple of years I have sought help with my overeating/compulsive eating problem. While I have made progress, from time to time I fall back in to that old way of being, and I feel trapped again. Your June article was helpful, thank you. However, I wish I could understand more about why I haven’t changed completely yet. Why does it take, so, long? Sometimes I just want to go on a diet, so I can feel in control of my body again, and happy with myself again. A: Congratulations on the progress you have made so far! It’s good that you found something you needed in the June article on compulsive eating/ binge eating. Many people with compulsive eating problems report feeling out of control of their bodies and ability to change. This sense of powerlessness is understandable and temporary for many people who are recovering from compulsive eating. One thing to consider is that change is not an event. It is a process that occurs

over time, with many smaller or related changes happening along the way. The urge to revert to dieting when not making quick progress is understandable, as many diets appear at first to offer quick success. But those who have tried dieting know the results (if any) are not long lasting, and sometimes worsen the problem (e. g., weight regain, increased nega-

In many people, dieting sets ❝ up a psychological and behavioural sequence of acting, thinking, and feeling that hinders rather than helps the desired change.

tive sense of self). One reason for this is that generally diets are aimed specifically at changing the appearance of the body, and reducing weight exclusively. The underlying root problems are overlooked. In many people, dieting sets up a psychological and behavioural sequence of acting, thinking, and feeling that hinders rather

are many variables that contribute to the problem (e.g., life circumstances, biological aspects, coping abilities/strategies, mood and emotional factors, trauma, grief). Resolving these contributing factors helps many people return to a way of eating and relating to food that results in weight loss over time. Research shows that

there are six stages involved in the process of changing. For instance, in the second stage people seek and consider information about the problem and desired change, and may feel more distressed and confused as they consider whether to take action. The fifth stage is very challenging for many people. It involves maintaining the positive changes through stressful times, and overcoming urges to use food to cope. With perseverance and practice of new ways of being and thinking, movement towards the desired change is likely to continue. The timing of change (when initiated, duration, frequency of moving back and forth through stages) is somewhat unique to the individual and the involved circumstances. Movement through the stages is not linear; people move back and forth as their readiness to change shifts (increases or decreases). There are some important aspects that may help with success-

ful change and recovery from compulsive eating. Become more knowledgeable about the problem. Identify the pros and cons of changing (e.g., lifestyle and health benefits). Identify the challenges that may hinder change and strategies to overcome these potential obstacles. Create small, attainable, and measurable change related goals. Recruit people who will support you through the process. Be realistic.

Remember that if this has been a longterm problem, change will likely be longer rather than quicker. However, some change (related to the overall change goal) will likely occur in the short term. Recognize and celebrate successes (the change efforts and results) along the way! This will help encourage you to keep moving forward towards your desired overall change goal(s). For counselling/ therapy with overeat-

ing/compulsive eating problems please contact the writer at Pacific Therapy and Consulting. If you would like to ask a question of the counsellors, for a response in future columns, e-mail them at askpacific@shaw.ca.

OUR ELECTRICITY GRID IS ABOUT TO GET

A WHOLE LOT SMARTER

STARTING THIS SUMMER, BC HYDRO WILL BE UPGRADING HOMES AND BUSINESSES WITH NEW SMART METERS. MOVING TO A MORE EFFICIENT, MODERNIZED GRID WILL CREATE IMMEDIATE SAVINGS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS. YOU MAY BE WONDERING... What is a smart meter? The smart metering program will modernize our electricity system by replacing old electro-mechanical meters with new digital meters. A smart meter is a digital meter that records the amount of power you use. It helps improve the efficiency of the power grid, means less wasted electricity and gets BC ready for future power needs. What are the benefits for me as a customer? You will be able to see your power use in near real time and it will be faster and easier to open and close your account if you move. What happens if the power goes out? With smart meters in place, BC Hydro can pinpoint power outages and restore power faster. How does it make my community safer? The new meters reduce public and worker exposure to theft-related safety hazards, such as house fires, live wires and premature transformer failures. How will my meter be read? There will be remote, two way communication between your meter and BC Hydro. Smart meter signals are short, infrequent and will last less than one minute per day. Is the signal safe? Yes. The signals are low level frequency, meeting and exceeding Health Canada safety standards. Is my information secure? Similar to online banking systems, the data from the meters is secure and your privacy is protected.

Summer not here, but here are seniors’ summer tips

COMOX VALLEY HOMES The Valley’s Most Comprehensive Real Estate Guide

Every Friday!

Anne Armstrong, has some great summer tips to help seniors and their family caregivers take advantage of the warm weather and “beat the heat.” Anne’s Summer Tips for Seniors • Drink water. Keep hydrated by drinking at least eight, eightounce glasses of liquid every day, especially water, juices, milk, club

SANDWICH GENERATION

WENDY

JOHNSTONE soda and decaffeinated beverages. Other fluidbased treats include watermelon, smoothies and ice cream. • Limit caffeinated and alcoholic beverag-

es. Both are diuretics which increase seniors’ fluid needs. • Sensory changes such as smell and taste are more common in seniors. Ensure loved ones are careful with date-label perishable foods, including their summer fruits and vegetables. • Travel smarter during family summer vacations. Plan accord-

ingly and be sure to receive proper immunizations if travelling overseas and that senior family members pack an emergency kit with important medical history information and telephone numbers. • Wear sunglasses at all times when outdoors (NOT just at the beach) to help protect eyes from the sun’s

harmful ultraviolet rays. • Stay indoors during extremely hot temperatures. • Wear a hat and apply sunscreen (minimum 30 SPF) to protect skin from overexposure to the sun’s damaging rays. • Know the signs of stroke and seek attention for this medical emergency. Signs

include a red flushed face, high body temperature (106 F+), headache, little or no sweat and rapid pulse. Wendy Johnstone is a gerontologist and is the founder of Keystone Eldercare Solutions. Her column runs in the Comox Valley Record every second Friday now that she’s back from a summer vacation.

I thought if I wrote about summer and heat perhaps we would be blessed by actually having some warm and sunny weather in the Comox Valley. Wishful thinking... Having come back from three glorious weeks in the Ontario and Interior heat wave, our family spent every day outside in the sun. Transitioning from the Comox Valley weather to Toronto’s searing hot and humid weather was a shock to our system and we learned firsthand the importance of taking the necessary precautions to ensure safety and hydration while enjoying our favourite season. For older adults, hot summer days are at a greater risk of being affected by the hot weather and sun during summer months. There are many physiological changes that affect a seniors’ ability to stay cool during the summer months. As we age, our sweat glands, which help cool the body, become less efficient. Blood vessels carry less blood to the skin and the skin itself goes through natural normal age-related changes that may slow the rate of heat release or the ability to “cool oneself down.” Normal aging cause older adults to respond slower to heat. leading to higher body temperatures and slower sweat productions. This results in a higher risk of dehydration and sun and/or heat stroke. Chronic diseases of the lungs, heart and kidneys, and other illnesses such as diabetes, stroke, Parkinson’s and high blood pressure affect the body’s ability to cool down. Medication for depression, motion sickness and high blood pressure also change the body’s ability to regulate temperature and need to be taken into consideration when spending time in the heat.

Run into anyone lately? Best way to avoid paying for them is not to get into collisions

DANCE PARTNERS John Blyth from Comox and Heather von Hugo from Qualicum competed at the Dance Pacifica Ball held recently in Victoria. They earned first place in Newcomer Latin, second in Newcomer Standard and third in Pre-Bronze Latin.

I often ask if anyone has been directly affected by a collision in the past year when I am making a presentation to a group. I can see people thinking about it and then a few hands may tentatively rise. My answer usually surprises them and it may surprise you as well. About 80 per cent of the premiums that ICBC collects each year are paid out again to settle collision claims. If you are like me, we pay just over $500 per year for our basic insurance. That means we have paid at least $400 per year directly out of our pockets for collisions

BEHIND THE WHEEL

TIM

SCHEWE whether we were in one or not! Recently ICBC announced plans to increase the penalties for drivers who do not follow the traffic laws. This idea was immediately met with howls of protest that were loud enough to cause our government to tell ICBC that it wasn’t acceptable. Does this mean that the drivers who are more than likely going to place us all at increased risk of collision should feel a little bit of pain but not enough potential pain to cause them to think twice beforehand? The surest way to avoid the costs associated with collisions is not to have them in the

first place. Yes, we all make mistakes, but let’s not practise the behaviours that encourage mistakes and let’s make it more difficult for those that do. For more information on this topic, visit www.drivesmartbc.ca. Questions or comments are welcome by e-mail to comments@drivesmartbc.ca. Tim Schewe is a retired RCMP constable with many years of traffic law enforcement experience. His column appears Friday.

Kick-start cash up for grabs The Government of Canada is once again accepting applications from local businesses to help kick-start their innovative ideas by moving their products and services from the lab to the marketplace. The latest call for proposals under the Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program/Kickstart initiative was launched by Rona Ambrose, Minister of Public Works and Government Services and Minister for Status of Women. “I am pleased to tell you that the second call for proposals is now available to local businesses,” said John Duncan, Vancouver Island North MP and Minister of Aboriginal

Affairs and Northern Development. “Our government is putting its support behind local innovations designed right here in Vancouver Island North. “The Canadian Innovation Commercialization Program was introduced because it’s an important way to kickstart innovative Canadian business ideas by helping them move from late-stage research and development into commercialization.” This $40-million program was created to help Canadian businesses by testing their innovative products and services within the Government of Canada before taking them to the marketplace.

Two steps forward, one back The building of a new hospital, always a long and complex process, has developed more twists and turns locally than the Puntledge River. The original one regional hospital model was scrapped after communities (especially Campbell River) that would lose their own hospital protested so loudly that the Vancouver Island Health Authority backed off. Since then proceeding with a plan to build smaller hospitals in Campbell River and the Comox Valley, VIHA announced in January the new building here would be in Courtenay across from Crown Isle. In spite of complaints, mainly from Cumberland, about potential problems with congestion and cross-river travel during an emergency, 14 high-priced consulting companies have been working for six months to prepare a case to present to Victoria for funding to build a hospital. Now we learn the Department of National Defence, which has responsibility for the Comox Valley Airport, has forbidden a four-storey hospital at the chosen site because it feels the building would impinge on its controlled airspace. Going down Ryan Road a little bit away from CFB Comox, VIHA quickly switched to the No. 2 location on its original shortlist, a spot next to North Island College. Mercifully, we learned this week that the six months of work by the army of consultants is transportable to the new site. Otherwise, taxpayer dollars would have been wasted because the original site search team failed to factor in base airspace. Single-hospital proponents will again call for one larger regional building to cover patients from Fanny Bay to Port Hardy. That horse has left the barn. There might be more of a case to build on the other side of the Courtenay River, and the onus remains on VIHA to justify its Ryan Road choice. However, St. Joseph’s is not getting any younger and this latest setback will delay the new hospital we need. As it is, we’ll be lucky if the doors open by 2017. editor@comoxvalleyrecord.com

Record Question of the Week This week: In a strong response to our question, 57 per cent of respondents said they are voting yes to extinguish the HST. Next week: Do you approve of a new hospital next to North Island College? Visit www.comoxvalleyrecord.com and vote in the Poll on the mainpage. Ap public inquest will study the death of a Courtenay man in Comox Valley RCMP cells in 2009. The findings will hopefully help to comfort his family.

With the controversial Crown Isle hospital site forbidden, the long wait for a new hospital in the Comox Valley just became even longer.

Courtenay has a growing problem right now! Medicated “zombies” are shuffling through our downtown core, urinating and defecating in our parks and parking lots. They are drinking their medication in brown paper bags on our benches under our bridges and on our walk paths. They want your spare change and if you say no they might spit on you, curse you out or even open your car door to challenge you. During our Journey of Discovery, a local politician said that these concerns were a marginal problem. This is not marginal for the people or business affected. If your wife or daughter is afraid to shop downtown or walk sections of our Airport Park, if your cashiers were traumatized by ignorant aggressive, cursing curb dwellers that wander into your store, (without intent to purchase anything) or your 90-year-old customers shoved and assaulted by this extreme brand of crazy, then it would not be marginal, would it? These “zombies” were or are, our family and friends trapped in the cycle of addiction and/or mental illness and in response we need to be a compassionate and caring society. Allowing them to aimlessly loiter in our streets and parks is not compassionate or caring. The proposed homeless shelter in downtown will not solve these problems and with a good neighbour agreement they will not

add to the problem either. Yes, we need a homeless shelter, but what about the concerns of the business and citizens? If you want the support of the people and citizens for this shelter, then listen and address our concerns. It’s obvious that some local politicians don’t really care about what we care about and just want to turn us into

affecting the enjoyment of our parks, our downtown businesses and residences. We need a review of our city bylaws to ensure that acts of aggressive panhandling, public drinking or drunkenness, defecation and loitering are not permitted in our city. We need a mental health unit to operate in conjunction with the police and courts to enforce bylaws These ‘zombies’ were or are, and remove these our family and friends trapped in people from our streets and into the cycle of addiction and/or menmedical tal illness and in response we need proper care or incarcerato be a compassionate and caring tion.

Walkout undemocratic Dear editor, With DND apparently slapping down the new hospital site, that chunk of real estate will now be available to build a much larger homeless shelter next to Crown Isle. The DCBIA merchants and their mouthpieces on Courtenay council will be jumping for joy. If the shelter issue were laid to rest, however, we would be deprived of a great deal of entertainment. With their latest theatrics, Mr. Presley and his acolytes have just proved that not all five-year-olds are in kindergarten. Stamped their feet, grabbed their marbles and ran away! Cute. What’s next? Holding their breath till they turn blue? Maybe a (golden) lolly would quell Mr. Presley’s conniptions; perhaps in the form of additional public subsidies for the parasitic Economic Development Society? Our stalwart defender

Councillors were petulant Dear editor, I attended the July 19 Courtenay city council meeting to hear the debate around Coun. Presley’s motion against the proposed homeless shelter. I always enjoy a good debate. What I witnessed instead was an amazing, and rather sad display of petulance by city councillors Presley, Jangula and Theos, as they walked out of chambers to deny quorum.

I would not want to say that the whole thing had been staged but it effectively achieved what they could not get by democratic means, a deferment of the vote till next council meeting. I had not seen these type of antics since the days of the old regional district when a former Courtenay representative, acting as chair, urged delegates to walk out. Fortunately at the time her advice was

Abandoning their posts Dear editor, Any elected representative who walks out of a session because he or she isn’t getting his or her way and causes the assembly’s business to come to a halt should be considered to have

resigned. In a military situation, a soldier who abandons his or her post is dealt with firmly. We should expect no less from our elected representatives. Dave Ferguson, Comox Valley

not heeded. I am also appalled by the lack of compassion that many of the local businesses have shown around the homeless shelter. While they mouth platitudes, they were not there in the past when their support was needed, and you can bet, they will not be there in the future. I try not to paint all local businesses with the same brush but they have to speak up if they do not support the position of their association and/or Chamber’s leadership. A shelter is needed. The location, after a long process, has been purchased. Now let us get it built and staffed before too many more winters set in. Brian Charlton, Courtenay

Recipient grateful for honour Dear editor, Dianne and I left Courtenay for Denman Island soon after the Friday ceremony and returned home to Victoria only yesterday. Though I was busy teaching a writing workshop during that time, I found myself quite often reliving the Walk of Achievement ceremony and appreciating the honour with a sense of wonder and a good deal of gratitude. Once we were home and I had access to my computer, I checked the stories in the Comox Valley newspapers, and this reinforced my sense of the exceptional privilege and honour bestowed upon me. As I mentioned in my comments, not every writer feels welcome in his or her home territory! Not only has the Walk of Achievement honour made me feel welcome, but it has reminded me of how, in my work, I am constantly drawing upon my affection for and knowledge of the Comox Valley — its history, its landscape, and its people. I appreciate that perhaps the primary purpose of the plaque, the event, and the acknowledgement is to provide encouragement for young people growing up in the Valley with their own dreams. I recognize the importance of providing this sort of recognition, since I can recall feeling as a youngster that my own hopes

were unrealistic and perhaps foolish – knowing of no one else who had grown up in the Comox Valley and written stories about the place or its people. This might have been discouraging enough to make me abandon my dream if my parents, some of my teachers, and my own fascination with the people and history of the area hadn’t helped to keep the dream alive. I am especially pleased that the plaque in the sidewalk is associated with the Laughing Oyster Bookstore! And I am grateful to those who came out to speak, as well as to those who sent e-mails and all those who showed up to witness the ceremony. If this plaque and the publicity surrounding the Friday event provide hope, justification, and inspiration for future writers and other artists growing up in the district, this will give me a good deal of satisfaction. Amongst other things, I am grateful that Dianne and our family (including our grandchildren) were present at the ceremony to witness such generosity and support expressed in the place of my own growing-up years. Thank you again for your hospitality in Courtenay and for this remarkable honour. Jack Hodgins

Trade discussions with EU being done in secret Dear editor, Canada is facing a number of challenges at the federal, provincial, and local levels. Today, we are facing one particular issue that touches on all these levels of government. The terms of CETA (Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement) between Canada and the European Union are currently being (secretly) negotiated. This trade agreement has been kept from the public for too long. Although organizations such as CUPE,

Trade Justice Network, APTN, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives among others, have addressed the matter, it has consistently failed to make it into the mainstream media which is the main source of news and information for most of us. This free trade agreement could embed within it devastating implications in the social, political, environmental, as well as economic spheres. As the European Union members and corporations are facing a growing financial

People before dogs Dear editor, Thanks to friends and neighbours who have been supportive in preventing Port Augusta Park from being turned into a dog park. Without dogs, maybe someday the deer will come back. No one ever said dogs shouldn’t have a park, but frankly, Port Augusta Park is too good for them. It’s old,

it’s established, wellkept and peaceful. Dogs and dog traffic aren’t needed in this neighbourhood. Dogs would be just as happy running around a big field somewhere else. And, people on Beaufort Avenue, try selling your house with a dog park on your block. People J. Cates, first. Comox

I find it alarming that my neighbours and members of the community of Comox Valley are not aware that this trade agreement even exists.

crisis, I cannot but conclude that these transnational corporations are becoming more desperate to expand their market here, in Canada. CETA and the resulting policies will affect the lives of each and every Canadian. For instance, the Peace Alliance Winnipeg News identifies some of the major threats: “It’s the biggest free trade deal Canada has ever negotiated. But the public is being left in the dark about Canada-EU trade talks by the federal and provincial governments. This trade deal is not just about trade. It’s a privatization and deregulation designed to undermine local communities and give new powers to multinational corporations.” If CETA is signed it will: • Threaten our

democracy by putting corporate rights first; • Encourage privatization of Canadians’ drinking water and wastewater services; • Threaten local job creation and buy-local policies; • Cause prescription drug costs to skyrocket by at least $2.8 billion per year; • Allow big corporations to ignore or challenge environmental regulations; • Undermine Canadian farmers and endanger local food

security. These only scratch the surface of the matter. My utmost concern is the secrecy under which this trade agreement is being negotiated. I find it alarming that my neighbours and members of the community of Comox Valley are not aware that this trade agreement even exists. I would like our residents in the Comox Valley to get involved in these negotiations and find out how CETA would affect our community. Will our water be privatized? Would our local government services be privatized? And what other effects

r e m m Su Sale! Fashion On 5th

would we face in our area should the terms of CETA be implemented? I have a number of resources and links to websites that are very informative. I would invite those community members to contact me for further details or check www.tradejustice.ca/en/section/1

It is my hope that we can empower our community by creating more awareness on federal government policies such as CETA, which too often take place in secrecy resulting in the lack of public discussion and input. Jeannie Graham, Black Creek

Wine, art make great combination You’re invited to enjoy both this Sunday afternoon Art and wine — both are subjective, evoke emotion and tend to be very personal. The recent work of local artist Juanita Olson, paired with a complimentary tasting of the Blue Moon Estate Winery’s awardwinning wines is a recipe for a pleasant Sunday afternoon outing. The Blue Moon Estates Winery, Nature’s Way Farm, and the Tria Culinary Studio on Darcy Road provides an ideal venue to showcase Juanita’s recently completed collection of paintings in a variety of media and techniques — all depicting food items — a favoured subject in the Comox Valley. Juanita’s medium of choice has been watercolours for many years. Now settled in the Comox Valley, and inspired by the com-

THIS PERFECT PAIRING painting sets the mood for an afternoon at Blue Moon Estate Winery that pairs wine and art. pany of the many talented artists here, she has been venturing into other techniques. Food subjects lend themselves well to a technique known as “stitched watercolours.” These delightful little paintings are mounted on canvas and sealed with acrylic. Juanita refers to them as “Kitchen

Art” because they will withstand the humidity in most kitchens. In the artist’s opinion, most people don’t have enough art in their kitchens. Juanita also paints using watercolours on masa paper, for a deep dramatic result. These paintings are also mounted on canvas and sealed, so are

very durable. Most recently, Juanita has been enjoying the punchy colour possible with acrylics. Still life peaches and a Rubenesque pear round out the exhibit.

Marla Limousin of The Blue Moon Estate Winery, Nature’s Way Farm and Tria Culinary Studio invites all comers to meet the artist and enjoy a complimentary tasting of their award-winning wines. “We wanted to be able to showcase local artists, so when we were planning our farm gate building, we included pot lighting in the ceiling of the perimeter of the rooms, and painted the walls in colours that would complement most palettes,” explains Marla. This Sunday, Blue Moon Estate Winery (at Natures Way Farm) is presenting a pairing of art and wine between 1 and 4 p.m. at 4905 Darcy Road just north of Courtenay.

fit, released Six Shooter, played in Europe and opened for Blue Rodeo across eastern Canada. “The tour with Blue Rodeo was amazing, so many consecutive shows playing to bigger audiences, which is just amazing for us,” said Bentall. “Playing to thousands of people for 25 shows, that really made a difference to us as a band, for being exposed to that amount of people and selling our records to them.” Getting the chance to hang out with guys who have been around for a long time and learn from them was also a huge influence on Bentall. “To be able to soak a bunch of that in was a really great experience,” he said. With all of these experiences in the past three years, Bentall says he has learned to trust himself and the decisions he makes. “I guess in a lot of ways, the biggest thing I’ve learned is you find out that the more choices you have to make, I found out that what I feel, what I think, is ultimately what I need to go for,” he said. “Of

all the great things that have happened in the last few years, I’ve made a lot of mistakes, too, and learned from them. Because it’s me and my band and our music, it’s ultimately what we want. That’s also what we’ve done with this new record, and that is really exciting.” Looking ahead, the Dustin Bentall Outfit is thinking of moving to Austin, Tex., for the winter. “It’s not easy in Canada doing our style of music, where in the States, it really thrives,” said Bentall. “We really feel as a band that we almost owe it to ourselves to at least try because there’s potential there.” For Bentall, who says headlining a show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver is also a goal, success means being able to play and write music for the rest of his life. “I’ve never had big aspirations to be a huge star,” he said. “To be able to have a ranch and be able to live on it and tour and make music all my life, it’s kinda simple, but it’s all I really want to do.”

HAPPENING ONGOING

REMEMBERING ETERNITY (left) and Between Worlds are creations of Autumn Skye Morrison of Powell River, one of the many artists, artisans, musicians and children’s entertainers coming to the Filberg Festival in Comox on the B.C. Day long weekend.

Painting like a journey Autumn Skye Morrison Special to the Record

Painting is in itself a celebration and exploration into the mystery and magic of life and creation. As I paint, the imagery evolves and takes me on a journey. I begin each piece with a seed of an idea, and by watching and listening, the piece comes into being. While painting, animals, plants and other elements come to me. I was blessed with total support of my creative exploration while growing up. There was never a doubt of what I would do with my life, and even before I knew the concept of “artist,” I knew who I was and what I was here to do. I have not completed an academic training, but I have been painting since I was old enough to hold a brush. I am a “young” artist, at 27 years old, but I feel an ancient calling stir every time I open my eyes in the

morning. I have known no more humbling and empowering teacher than art. I usually begin each piece with only a loose idea, a seed of a concept, or a few fragmented elements. With such an open starting point, the possibilities are boundless of where the piece will take me. Sometimes it is a little clearer when I begin, and there are only slight surprises as it develops, other times I think I have it “figured out” and suddenly it will shift and flow in a totally different direction, and sometimes I just begin by getting splashy with colours and energetic brushstrokes and the imagery gradually comes clear. As a painting develops and evolves, often new animals, objects, figures, or symbols come to mind intuitively. I trust this as guidance and most often they will fit perfectly into the composition and concept of the

CROSSWORD

Here’s how it works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

Cage is the stage for MMA fighters on Saturday Earle Couper Record Staff

Mixed martial arts are the latest rage, and Saturday night that rage moves inside the cage when the Comox Valley Boxing Club presents “Full Throttle Fight Night 3-Redemption” at the Comox Valley Sports Centre. Following two successful outdoor MMA promotions, the club has borrowed a hexagon cage from Battlefield Fight League and is taking the show indoors. There will be floor seating on all six sides of the cage and advance tickets are available at the Sid Williams Theatre and Fitness Etc. The fun starts at 6:30 p.m. with tickets also available at the door on fight night. Local fitness guru Marc St. Jules is MCing the evening, and he notes the Ovarian Cancer Society and The Boys and Girls Club are benefactors of the event.

The CVBC says FTFN3-Redemption “is going to be the biggest, baddest and most exciting event in North Island MMA history.” At press time, the main event had Fraser Jordan (Pure Self Defense, 0-0) against Brett Deacon (South Island BJJ, 0-1) in a 185-pound tilt. The co-main

will feature the CVBC’s own James “Haitian Devastation” Pratt (4-3-1) against Blake McVittie (0-0-2) of MET in a clash of 135pounders. Other scheduled bouts include: • Garth Nasadyk (CVBC, 0-1) vs. Dillion Brown (Island Warriors, 0-1) at 160 pounds • Kent “The Furnace” Fourneau (CVBC, 0-0) vs. Dwayne Ganderton (Pure Self Defense, 0-1) at 185

pounds • Andrew Payne (CVBC, 0-0) vs. Jean Allard (Phoenix Rising, 0-1) at 185 pounds • Damian McGuery (CVBC, 0-0) vs. Matt Lockard (Pure Self Defense, 0-0) at 170 pounds • Tiffany Wiebe (CVBC) vs. Charlotte Hoffart (Knockout Martial Arts) in a 122-pound kickboxing bout, and • Stephanie Schneider (CVBC, 0-0) vs. Brittany Fisher (Salt Spring Kickboxing, 0-0) in a 160-pound kickboxing tilt. “It takes a lot of time and effort to put a card together and it’s a community affair when you look at what goes into it. J-Mac would like to thank the tireless effort the people in the background have done to bring the event to fruition,” St. Jules added. For more on FTFN3-Redemption, check out www. cvboxingclub.com or call Mac at 250-898-7444.

Payne set for MMA debut

ANDREW PAYNE

A Sechelt fighter on tomorrow night’s undercard could be in for a world of Payne. Andrew Payne of the host CVBC is set to make his MMA debut against Jean Allard (0-1) of Phoenix Rising in a 185-pound bout. The 28-year-old Payne hails from Newfoundland and is a Material Technician at 19 Wing Comox. He has been in the Valley for over a year and loves the West Coast. Payne went to Provincials as a high school wrestler, and after watching a recent AFC MMA event in Victoria told his brother-in-law he wanted to try MMA. His brother-in-law said, “Go for it!” Payne’s talented wrestling skillset fast-tracked his Brazilian Jujitsu and in no time he was tapping out more experienced MMA adversaries. While it’s been 12 years since he last competed, he is looking forward to challenging himself in the cage tomorrow night with the support of his military co-workers and superior officers cheering him on. Payne served a tour in Afghanistan and is prepared to fight for his country anytime and anywhere when called upon. He says he enjoys the professionalism and camaraderie at the Comox Valley Boxing and MMA Club. “The whole experience has been fantastic, from the training, new friends, work support and ring girl search. I’d like to thank the base for all its support and encouragement.”

Knockout gym offers family-friendly martial arts Knockout Martial Arts and Fitness may be the new kid on the Comox Valley’s martial arts scene, but years of experience and a strong following for the gym’s Muay Thai trainers already have the building buzzing. Owners Scott and Jennifer Judson seized on an opportunity this spring and, together with senior instructor David Hoffart, opened the doors to this family-friendly gym. Walk through the doors, and the Judsons’ young daughter can often be seen playing with her pink toys, an unexpected contrast to the serious Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) training happening on the mats.

MARTIAL ARTISTS OF almost all ages will feel welcome at Knockout Martial Arts and Fitness in Courtenay. PHOTO SUBMITTED

“We’re geared towards family,” Scott explained. “Our members are people who want to learn a martial art in a safe, fun, and comfortable environment.” With martial artists “from six to any age” training in the gym, Knockout Martial Arts and Fitness currently offers 13 classes a week, including children’s and youth classes, strength and conditioning classes and beginner, intermediate and all level Muay Thai classes. Women’s fitness classes, based on Muay Thai techniques, will start this fall. Martial arts students will advance their training through a belt system, based on the Master Toddy Muay Thai system through

which the gym’s instructors are certified. The systematic progression of skills allows students to build confidence, Judson said. “Martial arts is not a seasonal sport,” he said. “It’s about doing something you enjoy for a length of time and learning it.” To find out more about Knockout Martial Arts and Fitness, call 250-8718997, e-mail knockoutmartialarts@hotmail.ca, or stop by at 2940 Moray Avenue in Courtenay, behind West Coast Home Theatres.

mendous improvement on defence and toughness shutting down some bigger American opponents while continuing to score big baskets. Camille Bourget overcame an ankle injury and checked some large-bodied, skilled opposition into submission and was selected one of the Top Canadians of the Day. Danielle VanBergen scored many key baskets throughout the games and was selected Top Canadian of another day but assistant coach MacKinnon was busy dispensing a team icecream emergency and forgot to pass on the prestigious Canada hat to her. “Well done, Danielle!” he said. Michaela Ashlee checked the best point guards throughout the tournament and won the tournament foul shooting contest in front of a packed gym on the final day. Guest player from Qualicum Beach, Michaela Witte, won the camp’s spirit award, displaying sportsmanship and team spirit throughout.

Seven hard working Comox Valley basketball girls from Isfeld Secondary combined with two ‘dualcitizens’ from the USA and a guest friend from Qualicum Beach to form a highly competitive squad of 10 girls at the annual Western Washington University girls summer basketball camp in Bellingham, Wash., July 10-14. Staying in university dorms on campus throughout the week, the girls got a taste of university life as well as tremendous basketball competition. The Canadian girls and coaches proved they were the best dancers and singers amongst the 160 b-ball campers, noted assistant coach Hugh MacKinnon. The girls finished round robin and tournament play with a .500 record and upset eventual tournament champion Alaska in the round-robin. Coach Grant Ashlee was particularly pleased with the toughness and determination showed by all players in some very

Local runner does gruelling double

CHRIS WINKELAAR HITS the finish line. PHOTO SUBMITTED

Local runner Chris Winkelaar posted big results over the weekend. He represented the Comox Valley Road Runners in two races: the 5 Peaks Silver Star race on Saturday, and the Kelowna Midsummer 8K Race on Sunday. The 5 Peaks Trail Series is a country wide series of mountain races, and the Silver Star race did not disappoint. As always, the 13.5km course featured a wicked climb of nearly 1,000 feet of elevation, followed by a gruelling descent. Despite the challenging course, Winkelaar was able to finish in ninth place overall with a great time of 1 hour 29 minutes. This was good enough to get him on the podium with a third place in his M40-

44 age category. Ignoring the battering that his body had taken in the difficult mountain race, unbelievably, Winkelaar was lined up and ready for his second race of the weekend early on Sunday morning. The Kelowna Midsummer 8K Race is known as a flat and fast course. It is an urban course that runs through the Mission area of Kelowna. Winkelaar started out fast and despite the growing fatigue, was able to fight through his exhaustion from the previous day’s race, and turn out another excellent performance. He finished in 17th place overall with a time of 32:15. This result let him climb to the top of the podium with first place in his very com-

Lawn bowlers don costumes to enjoy Beach Party Pat Cutt Special to the Record

Rain or shine, Courtenay Lawn Bowling Club members are continuing on their hot streak. Parksville Mixed Pairs on July 9-10 had Vern Greenhill and Melie Ursulom vying for first in the “A” event in a very exciting game that went to the ditch to bump Vern and Melie to third place as Henriette and Eric Ballinger moved into contention for the win. Archie Harris and Irene Whitehouse lost only their first game to Parksville’s own MacNaughtons and won their next four games to take first in the “C”. Action then moved to Port Alberni on July 13-14 for Men’s Pairs and Ladies’ Pairs. Pete Harding and Dan Bereza represented the Courtenay men while Irene Whitehouse and Melie Ursulom won all of their games to take the trophy honours for the Ladies with Jackie West and Pat Cutt losing only one game (to Melie and Irene) to take third in the “A “

On the home front, president Gaynor Bereza likes to keep everyone busy and this time it was A Beach Party on July 17, in costume if possible! Twenty-five or so members turned out for an afternoon of fun bowling and a potluck dinner to wind up the day. Tuesday Mixed Pairs have two more games to

finish up and then the Men’s Pairs and Ladies’ Pairs will start. Some teams have games to make up but at the moment with most teams having completed five of the seven games required, Archie and Linda Harris have 10 points. Three teams with eight points are Pat Cutt and Bob Dargie, Melie Ursulom and Dan Bereza, and Car-

Top dressage instructor coming On July 27-31 dressage enthusiasts will have an opportunity to train and ride their horses under the tutelage of Georges Malleroni from Portugal. The clinic will be held at Country Lane Stables in Courtenay. Classical Dressage evolved from cavalry movements and training for the battlefield, and has since developed into the competitive dressage seen in show rings today. Classical riding is the art of riding in harmony with, rather than against, the horse. Correct Classical riding occurs only when the rider has a good seat and a correct and wellbalanced body position, moves with the horse’s motion, and gives and times the aids correctly.

Malleroni has devoted his life to these ideas. He studied under the Master of the Portugese School of Equestrian Art, Don Jose Athayde. During the clinic, riders from the Comox

Valley, Parksville, Errington, Salt Spring Island, Mill Bay and Nanaimo will train with Malleroni for one hour daily, riding their own horses. The clinic will encompass a wide

Whitehouse are all tied with four wins each, Vern Greenhill is lurking just behind with three wins and a tie. None of these teams play each other this week so we may go to plus/minus points to have a winner. The new teams names have been circulated by games chair Peter Harding, so we have quite a bit of excitement happening on that mid-week evening. Thursday Webber Singles are still going strong with Vern Greenhill leading with 14 points, Archie on his heels with 12 points and Pete Harding and Melie Ursulom close on their heels with 10 points. This club champion race goes on through the month of August so there could still be some major changes. Other events coming up are the Applebee’s Fours on Aug. 6-7 when the Courtenay club plays host to teams from all over the Island.

There are advantages to a never-ending spring O

ne has to be cautious when suggesting there are some happy consequences of prolonged winter – come spring – absent summer. I have found myself sitting on the shore because of unrelenting winds and storms, but on the other hand small lake fishing has been better than usual with the quality of the trout holding up throughout the month of July. Insect hatches are late, but you know they are the terrestrial stage of popular trout food. The aquatic stages of many insects are still swimming around the bottom of the pond where trout continue to feast on them. Case in point – I have yet to witness a good sedge hatch, but I have been enjoying some excellent fly fishing with patterns of the pupae stages of this class of insects. Dragon flies are another class of insect that time their emerging as adults with emerging cycles of many smaller prey species. To this end, dragon fly nymph patterns are continuing to produce well when fishing with sinking lines in deep water. I fished Spider Lake a couple of weeks ago and kept one prime trout of about 14-inches in length. It neatly fit what is a one-meal fish size for two people. Upon cleaning the fish I noted the stomach was empty and the body fat on the intestine was almost as red as the flesh of the fish. When we had it for dinner we both remarked on the excellent quality of the flesh for a mid-summer trout. It would seem

of native cutthroats. It is stocked on a regular basis by the Freshwater Fisheries Society plus some natural spawning streams. On the experience of this trip I plan to pay more attention in the future to this lake. When I fish it again I will launch from the site off Stone Quarry Road at the

south end. Ralph Shaw is a master fly fisherman who was awarded the Order of Canada in 1984 for

his conservation efforts. In 20 years of writing a column in the Comox Valley Record it has won several awards.

25th Annual Nautical Days A 20-INCH CUTTHROAT from Wolf Lake.

OUTDOORS

RALPH SHAW to me that the quality of the flesh for a summer fish is a result of cool summer weather – thereby resulting in cooler water temperature in our lakes. My last lake trip was on Wolf Lake near the base of Mount Washington. It is quite a large, long, narrow lake between Mount Washington and Centennial Hill and is about 5km long, with boat launches at both ends. I launched at the north end and rowed south along the western shore searching for signs of feeding trout. It was a cool day with a brisk breeze. There were two shore fishermen at the launch site; a couple in a canoe and one other boat fishing off the big slide near the middle of the lake. It was near the middle of the lake that I noted some small rises near some old submerged stumps that stood well

out into the lake from the shoreline. It was an invitation to put down an anchor and cast towards the submerged stumps. On my first cast a small cutthroat of about 10-inches took my fly. I resisted the temptation to kill it and see what it was eating, A few casts later I took a respectful cutthroat in the 13-inch class. I killed it and noted three sedge pupae in the stomach after I cleaned it and put it on ice. The flesh was a pale pink. During the next couple hours of pleasant fishing with a light green sedge pupae pattern, fished with a medium slow sink line, several fish were caught and two more added to the fish box. The wind had picked up and it was time to

call it a day. After pulling my anchor the boat drifted into deeper water and I put on a small brown leech on a high density wet line. The breeze was moving me along at quite a good clip when there was a heavy strike on the leech pattern. After what seemed an eternity I netted a large, sleek cutthroat trout that measured over 20 inches – a good trout by any standard. When I cleaned the large trout I noted its stomach was empty. If I caught another large cutthroat in Wolf Lake I would release it because we found the smaller fish to be much better flavoured than the large fish. My information on the lake suggested that it has a good population

RITCHIE Augustus “Hugh� Sept. 24, 1919 – July 19, 2011 Hugh, affectionately called “Gussie� by his grandchildren, passed away July 19th at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Comox, with family by his side. He was born in Pincher Creek, Alberta, spent most of his childhood in Vancouver, and joined the war effort overseas, as a radar operator in the R.C.A.F. In London, he met his future wife Joan on his first leave, and married her on his last leave. After the war, he and Joan raised their family in North Vancouver and he worked as a pharmacist and manager for Cunninghams, and later owned and ran a very successful Shoppers Drug Mart franchise. When he retired in 1982, he and Joan moved to the Comox Valley. With his beloved Joanie at his side, Hugh was first and foremost an adventurer. They were trailblazers, traveling to Mexico long before it was in vogue and subsequently exploring all corners of the world. They owned several powerboats and loved to be on the water whether fishing, water-skiing, cruising, or swimming. Hugh was also an avid gardener, cribbage player, sports fan, wine maker, and champion table tennis player. He was a man of great principle, with a healthy sense of humility, and thus a role model to people from all walks of life. He will be sadly missed by his wife Joan, his children Susan Jackson (Ron), John (Maureen), daughter-in-law Bonnie, and grandchildren Cara, Leanne (Jim Vassallo), Sharleen Jackson (Dennis Balogh), Mark Jackson (Jenny), Kyle, and Megan as well as many other family members and friends. He is predeceased by his son Steve. The family would like to thank Dr. Tancon and the staff at his clinic, as well as all the caring, wonderful professionals and volunteers at St. Joseph’s. There will be a small celebration of life in North Vancouver. For information call 604-313-7163. Those wishing to honour Hugh’s memory are encouraged to make a donation to the Canadian Red Cross or St. Joseph’s General Hospital Foundation.

CHRISTIE, Bessie May It is with great sadness, but with loving memories we announce the passing of Bessie May Christie (Nee Ritchie), on July 9th, 2011 at the age of 94. Bessie will be deeply missed by her children Jean (Jim) Libbey, Heather Kallman (Robert Cameron), Glenn (Cheryl) Morris, and her step-daughters Sharron Christie (Eric Mooney), Susan Christie (Gary Rowbotham) and Shelley Christie (George Van Wensem), as well as her 10 grandchildren and her 6 great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Fred Christie in 2006 and then decided in 2007 to move back to Ottawa to be closer to family.

In Loving Memory of KEVIN RICHARD BAKER July 24,1990 He is gone, but not forgotten. His memory lives on. Kevin, you were a blessing who fulďŹ lled our lives for so long, now our eyes are ďŹ lled with sorrow

A memorial service to celebrate Bessie’s life was held on July 19th, 2011 at the United Church Kanata, Ontario. Interment will follow on September 3rd, 2011 at the Virden Cemetery, Virden, Manitoba. Memorial donations may be made to the Dâ€™Ăˆsterre House Senior Centre, Comox, B.C. or to a charity of one’s choice.

Your family & friends miss you

IN LOVING MEMORY TESE SPECK It has been a year since Tese’s passing and the one thing more than anything else that has helped our family ďŹ nd the strength to go on, to wake up every morning and face the day, with the full recognition that there is a gaping hole in our world, in that special place where Tese had been, are friends like you, family, neighbours, and even strangers who came up to us and shared a prayer, kind word, telephone call, a sympathy card or simply held the space with love and compassion, some of you in loving silence. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Tese, we miss you and love you. Know that you are always in our hearts. Love from Mom, Dad, Kiwita, Klawdee, Jessie and Deidre, Uncle Wayne and Grandma Sylvia.
