Barlow captures second tub title BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The tubs were going at almost a record pace at this year’s Great Race. Nanaimo’s Nathan Barlow posted the secondfastest winning time in history at the Great International World Championship Bathtub Race on Sunday afternoon. Barlow reached the finish-line bell in one hour, 11 minutes, 54 seconds to win the race for a second time. “It was one of the best races I’ve ever run. It just went flawless for me,” he said. Barlow and runner-up Shawn Lamoureux were close the entire race. The two super-modified tubs were side-by-side leaving Nanaimo harbour and traded the lead twice. “It was perfect conditions for Shawn and me,” Barlow said. “Anytime there’s been a race – whether it be a circuit race or the big race – when conditions are like this, that’s when Shawn and I just run away from everyone. That’s what we did today.” The two finished one minute, 32 seconds apart and reached the beach more than 12 minutes ahead of the rest of the field. Lamoureux said his tub ran better in the rougher waters, but Barlow’s was better in calmer seas. Lamoureux, also a two-time champion, knew during the race that the finish times would be fast. ◆ See ‘WINNING’ /3

LEFT: In the key attraction of the festival, the Great International World Championship Bathtub Race, Nathan Barlow was on near-record pace in winning the title. He duelled with Shawn Lamoureux, another former champion, at the front of the pack but pulled away in the final stretch to win his second championship in 1:11:54. His time was two minutes, 34 seconds off Chris Glenn’s all-time record of 1:09:20. For more photos from the weekend, please see page 3.

Festival weekend quiet for Mounties BY CHRIS HAMLYN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Marine Festival continues to evolve into a family affair with police having a relatively quiet time the entire weekend. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, said arrests were down significantly from previous years, with 15 people taken to the Nanaimo detachment Saturday night. Eight people were arrested Friday night. “We would have expected more Saturday since that is the height of marine festival,” he said. “The majority were for public intoxication. There were no major incidents.” Police presence was significant Saturday night with more than 10,000 people at Maffeo Sutton Park to take in the fireworks, but police had little trouble. “One of the key reasons for the safe night was we had choke points – only two entrances into the park – and everyone is searched. If they don’t want to be searched, they cannot get in,” said O’Brien. “It’s become more family oriented, but we did have a few liquor pour outs. No charges were laid unless it was way over the top.”

Cooper Rey, of Nanaimo, acknowledges the crowd as he reaches the beach fifth overall and first in the stock class, in 1:30:43.

Winning time falls just short of record

◆ From /1 “I was wide open the whole way…” he said. “I was going after the win more than the record, but I knew it was a quick run.” Barlow said he had a feeling that his time would be a few minutes slower than Chris Glenn’s all-time record of 1:09:20. “If it’s anything more than this ripple on the bay,” Barlow said, gesturing at the waters off Departure Bay Beach, “That’s what it took to set the record and that’s what it’ll take to break it.” Thirty of the forty tubbers

who started the race managed to reach the finish line thanks to the relatively calm seas, but certainly the Great Race is never easy. “You still have to hang on and you still have to focus,” said Marian Stewart, first woman to finish. Surrey’s David McHardy won the modified class in 1:25:49 while Nanaimo’s Cooper Rey was the stock winner in 1:30:43. Stewart reached the beach in 1:32:49. Fourteen-year-old Ashley Martin was youngest tubber to finish in 2:25:36. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Counterfeit cash warning issued There have been 14 instances of counterfeit bills showing up in Nanaimo since June. “We’re still trying to get a handle on who’s responsible,� O’Brien said. “All we’re getting is the bottom feeders that are being offered $20 to go cash $100.� He said businesses must be extremely careful about checking bills to make sure they are genuine.

Police on Vancouver Island are warning people to keep a close eye on their cash. Counterfeit $100 bills have been popping up all over western Canada since June 1, said Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman. He said there are also fake $20s and $10s floating around and all the bills bear the same serial number.

Car fire snuffed along highway Nanaimo Fire Rescue doused a vehicle fire Sunday shortly after 11:30 a.m. on the southbound Island Highway near the Cedar cutoff. Ennis Mond, fire inspector, said witnesses reported a Suzuki SUV pulling off to the side of the road. Two male occupants exited the vehicle – one began walking down the road while the other hitched a ride with another vehicle – as the vehicle ignited. “By the time firefighers responded, it was fully involved,� said Mond. It is not yet clear what caused the fire. No injuries were reported.

The car knocked over a lamp standard and drove down an embankment before it stopped on the tracks. The driver was unhurt, but was taken to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital to be checked over.

A keen-eyed Nanaimo RCMP member and a phone tip from a concerned business owner helped bust a break and enter artist in Nanaimo Thursday. Police were called out at 9:30 a.m. when a homeowner in the 600 block of Bruce Avenue said someone went through her unlocked patio door and took two laptop computers while she was in her backyard picking blackberries. She never saw the suspect, but did notice fresh bicycle tracks in her front yard that led away from her home. While police were responding, a business owner called to say a man came into his business and tried to sell him a laptop. The information was passed on to a Mountie who spotted a man riding a BMX bike and wearing a shoulder bag several blocks from the scene. A search turned up an Acer laptop that had come from the home on Bruce Avenue. Police are trying to retrieve the other laptop, which was dropped off at a drug house. Const. Gary O’Brien, Nanaimo RCMP spokesman, credited the solving of the case, in part, to the phone call made by the business owner. Nelson Evans, 35, was charged with three counts of break and enter in Nanaimo provincial court Friday and is being held in custody until his next

New winery a tourist draw BY TOBY GORMAN THE NEWS BULLETIN

D

ale Shortt can see it clearly. A warm summer night, the sun casting its final light over his vineyard. People milling about his property, listening to a band playing, enjoying a picnic, walking through the vineyard or taking a tour of the winery, popping bottles of Millstone Estates wine into their shopping bags to take home. Mount Benson serving as the backdrop to the west, a bluff rising from the Millstone River to the east. It’s an idyllic scene that could one day come to fruition, but there is much work for

Shortt to do on his fivehectare property. “I didn’t buy this property 10 years ago with the intention of building a commercial winery,” said Shortt, a Nanaimo real estate agent. “I’d always thought about having a winery, but not necessarily anything on a scale like this.” Then it just sort of happened. After clearing the land, Shortt realized his property literally soaked in sunshine – in summertime it often registers several degrees warmer than other parts of the city. He purchased 6,000 grapevines and planted them on 2.5 hectares. Six years later, the vines are thriving and bottles of Millstone

Estates pinot gris, pinot noir and wild blackberry port are for sale. Merlot is in barrels and almost ready and Shortt hopes to have ortega and guwurztraminer available next year. Though making wine for two years, the winery only received its licence to sell in June. “On the first long weekend, just because of the sign out front, I think we did about $1,000 in sales,” said Shortt. “It’s been a lot of hard work and a lot of money, so it’s nice to see it begin to pay for itself.” The winery is located at 2300 East Wellington Rd. His marketing is just getting started. As the only winery

in Nanaimo – there are several in the Cowichan Valley, Ladysmith and one or two around Parksville – Millstone Estates has excellent potential as a stop for tourists, cruise ship passengers and wine enthusiasts making the rounds on Vancouver Island. Chateau Wolff Winery in Nanaimo recently closed. “It seems to me like it will be a good addition to the mix of tourism product that we already have available here in town,” said Mark Drysdale, executive director of Tourism Nanaimo. “It will be nice to refer people to a winery that’s five minutes away instead of 45 minutes down the road. Typically, we’re sending people down to the Cowichan area if they’re interested in wine.” Like the grapes themselves, the winery has room to mature. The heritage house, one of the first homes built in Nanaimo, will

be renovated, though it has just received a new and expansive countrystyle veranda for customers to sit and look over the vines as they roll down a gentle hill toward the Millstone River. Shortt wants to use the front garden as a place for wine tasting, entertainment and a picnic-like atmosphere, which will require fencing or shrub planting to meet licence regulations.

recording studio to whet Shortt’s appetite for guitar, is a post and beam building made of timber cleared from the property and beams recovered from a mill that was torn down. Inside, unique furniture, including the sales counter recovered from the old Johnson’s Hardware store, was restored and fits right in to the vintage-style decor. “I picture lots of music flowing out of here,” said Shortt. “Maybe weekend jam sessions, some wine tasting.” Along with real estate agent, guitar player, and host, Shortt is also the estate’s

winemaker. Armed with an education in agriculture, experience from growing up on a farm in Saskatchewan, and a lot of questions directed to people already in the business, Shortt feels he has the recipe for success. “As the farm thing goes, I know what I’m doing. But I’ve been making phone calls to other people in the industry and for the most part they’re very helpful. Some keep their secrets, but most of the time people are willing to share their knowledge. This operation doesn’t come without its challenges.” reporter2@nanaimobulletin.com

Rainwater cisterns proposed to ease groundwater pressure BY RACHEL STERN THE NEWS BULLETIN

Rural residents could soon gain access to cash to help resolve water issues in the Yellow Point and Gabriola Island areas. T he Re gional District of Nanaimo is eyeing a pilot program that would offer a $500 rebate on a rainwater cistern that collects a minimum of 4,545 litres, which must be rated for potable use. The program was approved by directors at a meeting last week and will go to the board for final approval at an upcoming meeting. Christina Metherall, drinking water and watershed protection coordinator for the RDN, said the program is meant to conserve groundwater resources, promote sustainability and help reduce salt water intrusion from over-pumping wells. The rebates would be available to residents in electoral area B; Gabriola, DeCourcy and Mudge Islands, and those living over the Yellow Point aquifer. Funding would be split evenly between the two areas. “We know in both of those areas that the rock doesn’t hold a lot of water and people in those areas are having issues with their water supplies and their wells might not take them all through the summer,” said Metherall. The RDN’s Area A Official Community Plan indicates water from the Yellow Point aquifer is being extracted faster than it can recharge and could reach a point where future development isn’t sustainable. Laurie Gourlay, president of the Mid Island Sustainability and Stewardship Initiative, said he’s pleased the RDN is taking steps to address water issues, but the rebate isn’t enough incentive to motivate people to install a cistern. But Bob Burgess, owner of The Rainwater Connection on Thetis Island, which provides rainwater services throughout Vancouver Island, said $500 is a serious rebate. “I’m really quite impressed the Regional District of Nanaimo is taking an active role,” he said. “Water, especially in the summer

time, is in short supply.” Burgess said a 4,545-litre cistern rated for potable use could range from $700 to $800 and cost an additional $200 to $500 for fittings, an overflow and labour. Burgess said people could purchase much larger units and spend upwards of $40,000, but that would be at the extreme end of the spectrum of prices. The RDN is also eyeing the Yellow Point Aquifer Protection Development Permit Area. The initiative was approved by the province, but still needs to be adopted by the RDN board as part of the Official Community Plan. The permit program would require new dwellings to include a cistern with a minimum storage capacity of 18,000 litres, rated for potable use. “Mandatory rainwater harvesting will apply to new developments because the community recognized that water is in short supply,” said Metherall. The permit would apply to the construction or alteration of dwellings and where land is subdivided with four or more parcels. Subdivisions would require a hydrogeologist or engineer report assessing the impact on ground water. Exemptions to the permit include subdivision of land with three or

A full list of exemptions and regulations can be found in the RDN’s area A Official Community Plan. Gourlay said he wasn’t aware of either initiative and wonders why, because MISSI has spoken to the RDN about water issues in the Yellow Point aquifer area. “It’s a big surprise,” he said, adding the RDN must consult with residents and let them know about projects that directly affect them. He also said more research needs to be done on the aquifers in the area because there is too much missing information to get an accurate picture of how ground water is being affected by development and current use. “I don’t think the residents are being adequately represented by governments,” he said. “There needs to be a public consultation process that puts all the information on the table.” For more information please go to www.rdn.bc.ca.

EDITORIAL

Saving water not so difficult The plan to offer $500 rebates for rural residents to install rainwater collection cisterns is such a natural you have to wonder why we aren’t already doing it. While residents in Yellow Point and on Gabriola Island have long struggled with concerns about their groundwater aquifers, water supply isn’t just a concern for those people relying on wells. Despite our typical ‘Wet Coast’ weather and seemingly abundant supply in our rivers and EVERY RESIDENT lakes, water should be a concern for everyone. can take Simply consider the steps to ease recent uproar over spendpressure on ing $65 million on a new water treatment plant for water supply. Nanaimo, and think about how much of that water we pay hardearned tax dollars to protect from contamination and make suitable for drinking then gets dumped back on the ground for lawns and gardens. It makes no sense. We waste water without a second thought, whether it’s watering or flushing or running the tap for dishwashing. Rebates to motivate people to install cisterns in rural areas will help protect groundwater, but we should also encourage urban residents to do the same. Or since we have already treated water for drinking, simple rainbarrels collecting water from our gutters for gardens or other non-consumption uses would be sensible to reduce the pressure on our own supply. Given the moderate cost and minimal footprint of such barrels, why not require all new construction to include them, thus reducing the stress on our water supply and the cost of water treatment, as less will be poured back into the ground. There is plenty we could be doing to protect our water and reduce our cost, we just need to make it a priority.

So much water is contaminated daily through home usage. I wish my home had a system that separated different streams of waste water, purifying and treating some for reuse in the home and diverting others for further treatment and energy production. Water is a precious resource and human waste is contaminating too much of it as the two streams are mixing together. As more development and strain on our natural resources continues, we will need to find better ways to handle waste in our society.

Plane sale a loss for West Coast history To the Editor, Re: Canso scheduled for takeoff to museum, July 19. I’m not entirely displeased about the sale of the remaining Canso A C-FNJB and its last flight to Oregon’s Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. The owners probably would have realized much more than the $100,000 selling price by parting out the aircraft; at least this outcome leaves the aircraft extant – though reportedly destined for static display only. The historical value of Canso PBY-5A (amphibian), civil registration C-FNJB (originally RCAF 9815), is greater in eastern Canada, where it was built in a Montreal plant as a pilot and navigator trainer for No. 3 Training Command (also in Montreal) of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. As the News Bulletin story reports, RCAF 9815/C-FNJB served mainly as air transport during its career with the RCAF before moving west to Saskatchewan to be converted to a water bomber and re-registered

HST better taxation system for province To the Editor, Re: HST argument nears conclusion, Letters, July 21. It appears that J. Ellis thinks that only those with blind trust in the government want the harmonized sales tax to survive. Wanting the HST has nothing to do with liking the Liberal government. The HST is a better system of taxation. The anti-HST group has no reputable economists or accountants stepping up and saying it is a bad system. Experts from these fields agree the HST is a good way of taxing and the best tax system for our province. The HST allows us to be competitive in attracting new business and keeping job producers like the film industry. It appears the opponents are against the tax because they dislike Gordon Campbell and hate the Liberal government. If they truly understood the fragmented and awkward PST, there is no way they would want to revert back to the old system. If they believe that defeating the HST will bring back the old style PST/GST, well they are sadly mistaken. You may be in for a big surprise. Why is it that more than 140 countries and Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes all find the HST a better system? But, it is not good for B.C.? You are not really against the HST; you either don’t like the way it was presented, dislike Campbell, hate the Liberals or all three. If the NDP introduced this tax system you would think it was the best thing since unions began. We all do need to pay taxes and all governments need money to operate properly. Bruce Roberts Nanaimo

Readers respond: Feedback on news items Questions need asking on public spending To the Editor, Re: Other people’s cash eventually runs out, Letters, July 19. Lots of people talk about HST versus GST. Taxes are part of our system. We must pay what we are told to pay, without asking the public sector to cut expenses. Maybe we need a complete review. We need answers to the age old question, ‘Where are politicians and municipal staff spending it?’ How can we cut costs? If city staff or the firemen need new buildings, how are we going to cut costs to help, rather than just demanding new things? A suggestion box may be in order for employees. They should go out and raise funds for their new buildings. We need zero-based budgeting. We need the next council to look at every job and every function and review it to decide if that job is better served by the private sector (gained through attrition and contracting out). Why do we simply agree to always pay more? Just because we are told to? Consider that the taxes on your property go up three per cent. That’s modest nowadays. Consider now that taxes also increase three per cent for

commercial/industrial. Please don’t say, ‘who cares about them?’ You do. Everything you buy, from shoes to gas to food, has to go up by three per cent. Let’s justify our lifestyle. Senior managers should also be required to find cost savings. The private sector does that. For the upcoming election, I want to start hearing about fiscal responsibility, zero-based budgeting and what candidates stand for on the financial side. We need candidates who are not protecting their political future, but want real changes. Gordon Halkett Nanaimo

Politicians ignore basis of constitution To the Editor, Re: What’s relevance of ‘our’ monarchy? Guest Comment, July 14. What can you say about Mark Rushton’s column? Maybe, how quintessentially Canadian? In what other country would we approve of the casual manner with which politicians play fast and loose with constitutional law? Witness the fourth estate gleefully pander to our collective ignorance of both law and history, and collect a paycheque doing so? ER II is Canada’s Head of State. She is the Queen of Canada. The Governor General

Speak up! You can comment on any story @ www.nanaimobulletin.com

and several Lieutenants Generals represent the Queen’s authority in her absence. The U.K. (by way of the Parliament at Westminster) severed its ties – as the colonial power – on Dec. 11, 1931 (Statute of Westminster, anyone?). If not for the bickering between federal and provincial politicians between the Balfour Declaration of 1926 and the above mentioned act, the Trudeau government would have had no opportunity to ‘repatriate’ the constitution. And, yet, given the continued bickering between federal and provincial politicians, the chances are somewhere between slim and none that Canada’s constitution will be changed – unless, of course, we’re happy witnessing politicians who have invested themselves with inordinate amounts of power, play fast and loose with constitutional law; the laws that are supposed to constrain their behaviour – and in that way protect us. Yes, where else but in Canada would the media be happy to witness political expedience

taking precedence over constitutional law? Even when that political expediency smacks of opportunistic whimsey. But if we’re happy giving our approbations to Ottawa’s ‘finest’ when next they address the constitution, surely we must be equally rapturous when political expediency is the word of the day in a taxing statute. So, in the presence of a fourth estate that is anything but a watchdog over the several governments in and of Canada, mightn’t we best be rather careful of what we wish for? And of what others might wish for us? So who might have any higher, political expectations of a nation that celebrates its colonial amalgamation as Canada Day, while ignoring its independence day? And pays journalists who can’t remember the lessons of Grade 7 social studies. David S. Dunaway South Wellington

Revitalized downtown still requiring money To the Editor, Re: City spending helps downtown, Letters, July 14. Please, J. Sharpe, get up to date. Downtown is revitalized already. The money being spent there now is for the bloodsuckers on these

committees. Two years of procrastination on the conference centre? Try two failed starts at the old Malaspina Hotel. Both failed because of government red tape. The second failure saw Nanaimo taxpayers pay out more than a $1 million settlement. The last two mayors and councils did not listen to former city manager Jerry Berry when he told them the woes of their direction. They built the Port of Nanaimo Centre without having secured grants, whined later, but ultimately taxpayers are the suckers that pay again. I really hope people like Sharpe and downtowners feel good with their heads in the pork barrel. Neil Saunders Nanaimo

Pilot project spreads success SUCCESSION PLANS for owners of business help ensure service continues for clients.

I

Small business succession is consistently identified as a key issue during small business roundtable consultations in B.C. Without a succession plan, small business owners can lose return on their investment and leave the communities where they operate without the services and jobs they depend on. For Island coastal communities, a new pilot project will help keep established businesses and the jobs they create by assisting business owners in passing on their success to aspiring entrepreneurs. Exit Opportunities, a new small

business succession pilot project, will link interested business purchasers to small business owners who are in the process of, or thinking about, exiting their business. The one-year project is a partnership between the province, Island Coastal Economic Trust and Island Coastal Community Futures, which will deliver the project while serving central and northern Vancouver Island, Powell River, the Sunshine Coast and Howe Sound. The project will include training and services related to purchasing an existing business

and would link Self Employment Program participants to small business owners who wish to sell their business. Other potential purchasers will be offered similar training, and small business owners will be offered support and training to ensure their businesses are transition-ready. Ron Cantelon, Parksville-Qualicum MLA said the program prepare new owners with business knowledge so they can effectively apply their energy and enthusiasm to renewing local enterprises. “When a small business disappears, a part of the community dies with it,” he said. “This program will enable owners to pass the torch to a new, locally-based owner.”

Experience the difference that Quality makes!

Artistic licence Tom Wilson expresses himself through multiple styles BY MELISSA FRYER THE NEWS BULLETIN

T

BRIAN O’BRIEN PHOTO

Tom Wilson, formerly of Junkhouse, performs a solo show at the Diners Rendezvous featuring music from his current bands Blackie and the Rodeo Kings and Lee Harvey Osmond.

om Wilson has no shortage of avenues to express himself. The former frontman for Junkhouse currently has three music projects on the go – Lee Harvey Osmond, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, as well as his solo work – acting roles in film and television and he just opened an art show of his paintings in New York City. Despite all these mediums, which pull his time in different directions, he always comes back to his first love. “The desire to play music is No. 1 for me,” Wilson said. “That’s what I bring to my audience.” He performs a solo show at the Diners Rendezvous Wednesday (July 27). The ‘solo’ moniker is a bit misleading as he pulls songs from his multiple bands. “You are going to hear some Blackie and the Rodeo Kings,” Wilson said. Not only that, but many of his songs are collaborations, written with other musicians and singers. Cur-

My interest is in communicating with people. rently on top of the Americana charts is the Blackie and the Rodeo Kings song, as well as a Lucinda Williams song which Wilson helped pen. Americana is also known as roots rock or alternative country. “I just play whatever I like,” Wilson said. He’s been playing music for most of his life, recording his first album with the band The Florida Razors. A few years later, he was part of a new band – Junkhouse – and watching songs like Outta My Head and Shine climbing the Canadian rock charts. After that ended, Wilson teamed up with Colin Linden and Stephen Fearing to form Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, simultaneously working

with members of Cowboy Junkies and Skydiggers on the band Lee Harvey Osmond. Wilson has almost as many albums in the works as he has art projects but he is more interested in playing music for people than recording in a studio. It’s the immediate reaction that he gets from an audience that is so satisfying, he said. “My interest is in communicating with people,” Wilson said. The 60-seat venue at the Rendezvous will be a switch from the massive festival audiences he played recently with Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. Wilson says the biggest difference is how he communicates. “In a crowd of 50,000 you talk a lot slower, that’s for sure,” he said. “You’re kind of a circus performer-slashtravelling salesman when you’re on tour.” Show begins at 8 p.m. with doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets $22/advance; $26/door. Please call 250-740-1133. For more information, please visit www.tomwilson. net. arts@nanaimobulletin.com

Contest rekindles passion for painting An award from an annual local contest rekindled one artist’s passion for painting in watercolours. Shameem Khan painted the watercolours in the show, called ... A Journey, over the course of one year. The works transport viewers around the globe, from the sun-drenched plazas and cafes in Italy and Spain, to the grey, wet streets of London. The bustling city of New York contrasts with the lush greenery of the waters of Kerala, India. Khan derives inspiration from architectural styles of

historical landmarks, urban scenes and the relationship to people. The light and shadow created by the buildings offer unique compositions for intimate street cafes, six-lane highways or rugged mountain monasteries. Sketching and rendering were part of Khan’s work in professional design, for which he has a degree in architecture, that took him to jobs in India and Dubai before Canada. Last year, Khan participated in the annual Nanaimo Heritage Paint Out, Shoot Out,

where artists and photographers are given a location in Nanaimo and expected to come back with finished artwork. Khan’s effort earned him an award and since then he has been painting on a regular basis, using traditional method of watercolour. An opening reception will be held Friday (Aug. 5), 7-9 p.m., at the Nanaimo Arts Council Gallery in Nanaimo North Town Centre. Khan’s artwork will be on display throughout August. For more information, please visit www.nanaimoartscouncil.ca or call 250-729-3947.

Shameem Khan’s watercolour paintings of scenes from all over the globe will be on display at Nanaimo Arts Council Gallery throughout August. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

IN MEMORIAM

IN MEMORIAM

In Loving Memory of

Marlyn Thomson July 24, 2008

If Tears Could Build A Stairway If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane. I would walk right up to Heaven, And bring you back again. No farewell words were spoken, No time to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goodbyeâ&#x20AC;?. You were going before I knew it, And only God knows why. My heart still aches with sadness, and secret tears still ďŹ&#x201A;ow. What it meant to love you - No one can ever know. But now I know you want me To mourn for you no more: To remember all the happy times, Life still has much in store. Since youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today A hollowed place within my heart is where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll always stay. In loving memory - Don, Sharryl, Lindsay & families

Raiders handle Rebels

Pirates, A’s need Game 3 BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

The Nanaimo Pirates needed to put their season on the line in a door-die rubber match. The Hub City Paving Pirates and the Okanagan Athletics split the first two games of their B.C. Premier Baseball League playoff series Sunday at Serauxmen Stadium, setting up Game 3 Monday, played after press time. The A’s surprised the Pirates 5-0 in Game 1, but the pennant winners responded with a 10-0 mercy-rule-shortened victory in Game 2. “It’s a real tough thing when you’ re expected to win and you get schooled, basically, in the first game,” said Doug Ro g ers, Pirates manager. “It’s really hard to recover from that and play at the same passion as you have all year after everybody’s down after the first game.” But the Pirates immediately started stringing hits together in the second game and the whole dugout lifted. “We came out with more energy, just more

PRE-SEASON GAME isn’t a close one as V.I. wins 53-11. BY GREG SAKAKI THE NEWS BULLETIN

Nanaimo Pirates batter Brady Rogers drives a double off the wall in right field during B.C. Premier Baseball League playoff action against the Okanagan Athletics on Sunday evening at Serauxmen Stadium.

bats to the ball and getting base hits,” said Mike Williams, winning pitcher. “We put some baserunners on and our guys came through.” In the first game, Kenton Schroter suffered the loss, going 5 2/3 innings, giving up five hits and one earned run while striking out eight. For Nanaimo, Cody Andreychuk was 2-for-2 and Brady Rogers doubled off the wall. In the rematch, Williams allowed only one hit during his sixinning shutout. He felt out of rhythm at the start, since he didn’t

know the Pirates would be batting first in Game 2 and so he warmed up twice. He ended up throwing a gem, so he was able to chalk up the mix-up to “the beauty of baseball.” Andreychuk completed a perfect day at the dish by going 3-for-3 with two RBIs. Alex Rogers also had two RBIs, Brady Rogers hit a single and a double and Liam Goodall had two hits and two runs scored.

Players earn Canada Cup invite No matter what happens in the premier league playoffs, ball season will last a little longer for four members of the Hub City Paving Pirates. Ben Dunbar, Brendan McCarthy, Brady Rogers and Justin Clarkson were all selected to be a part of Team B.C. at the Canada Cup tournament in Moncton, N.B. in August. Baseball B.C.’s highperformance committee chose the players based on a tryout process. “The Canada Cup tournament is the top showcase tournament in Canada and is the springboard for selection to Canada’s junior national team,” noted Doug Rogers, Pirates manager, in a press release. Dunbar, a catcher, helped his pitching staff compile the second-best earned-run average in the league, 2.13. The right fielder McCarthy was second on the team with a .305 batting average. Brady Rogers, the team’s everyday shortstop, was second on the Pirates with 25 RBIs. Clarkson, a pitcher and infielder, hit a team-best .333 and his ERA was 1.84, third-best on the staff.

A lot of first-year Raiders made their gridiron debut with the team on the weekend. They passed their initiation – defeating the Victoria Rebels. The V.I. Raiders junior football team beat the newly renamed Westshore Rebels 53-11 on Saturday on the road in pre-season action. “Our execution, I thought, was great. We had zero offsides, no procedures, those type of things that you always get a ton of in pre-season, we didn’t,” said Matthew “Snoop” Blokker, Raiders coach. “I’m also really happy with our effort and how physical we played.” Tailback Jordan Botel scored three touchdowns and Raiders quarterback Jordan Yantz was in sync with his receivers. “They’ve got tons of experience together and a great rhythm and I thought they were heads and tails above the defenders that were trying to cover them,” Blokker said. The defence, he said, included a host of young players and they needed a couple of series to find their footing. But as the game went on, they showed a willingness to hit hard and gang tackle. ◆ See ‘GAMES’ /30

Coastal T-men defeated in OT The Nanaimo Coastal Windows Timbermen lost a game that was there for the taking on Saturday. The city’s senior A Western Lacrosse Association team (6-8-2) lost 10-9 in overtime to the Coquitlam Adanacs on Saturday on the mainland. The T-men led 6-5 after two periods, but needed a goal from Joel Henry with six minutes left to force OT. Henry, Scott Ranger, Mat MacLeod and Cayle Ratcliff all ended up with two goals and Paul Brebber scored Nanaimo’s other marker. Matt King suffered the loss in goal as his team outshot the Adanacs 42-40. No points are awarded for overtime losses in the WLA, so the playoff race has gotten dicier for the T-men. Nanaimo ends its regular season with a home-and-home series against the Victoria Shamrocks (9-5-2). The teams meet Friday in Victoria, then play the rematch Saturday (July 30) at Frank Crane Arena.

Games start counting now ◆ From /28 The task now is to continue preparations for Week 1 of the Canadian Junior Football League season, which starts Saturday (July 30) with a road game against the Langley Rams. The Raiders coach said both his offensive and defensive coordinator kept things fairly simple for this past weekend’s exhibition game, and they’ll continue to do so early in the season. The Raiders feel like they were able to install enough of the playbook at main camp to get them through Week 1. “We just want to polish that and do it perfect,” Matthew Blokker said. “Unless we’re running everything right, we’re not going to insert anything else.” So practice this week, he said, will be all about execution. The exhibition win was encouraging, but there is lots to work on. “We still made a ton of mistakes, we still had guys going the wrong way, this that and everything else. All that stuff we have to get much better at and I believe we will.” GRID BITS … Please look for the News Bulletin’s annual V.I. Raiders season preview later this week … The team won’t play its home opener until Aug. 13 against the Kamloops Broncos. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

DBL Timbermen beaten in opener

I

BOXLA SQUAD loses to Ladner 9-4 in Game 1.

If the Nanaimo DBL Timbermen can do a better job of playing between the whistles, they can be competitive in their semifinal series. The senior B Timbermen were defeated 9-4 by the Ladner Pioneers on Sunday on the mainland in Game 1 of the best-of-five West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association series. The T-men took 27 more penalty minutes than the Pioneers, and Ladner tallied five times with the odd man.

“We weren’t as composed or disciplined as we should have been, but other than that we were right there with them,” said Roger Dubyna, coach of the team. “The offence played well, moved the ball really well, had some good-quality chances. Defensively we did a good job even strength.” Shawn Swanson led Nanaimo’s offence with two goals and an assist and B.J. Potter and Mike Maughan had the other goals. Luke MacNeil dished three assists and goalie Danny Walters made 42 saves. GAME ON … The T-men and Pioneers meet in Game 2 tonight (July 26) at 7 p.m. at Frank Crane Arena. sports@nanaimobulletin.com

Junior Pirates switch to playoff mode RACHEL STERN/THE NEWS BULLETIN

Throwing strikes Nanaimo Coal Miners pitcher Joey Benda sends a strike toward home plate during a game against the Northwest Honkers on Saturday at Serauxmen Stadium. The Miners closed out their Pacific International League regular season this past weekend and start provincials Saturday (July 30) in Kelowna.

The Nanaimo Palladian Pirates ended off the season with losses at the hands of the pennant-winning Langley Blaze, but the junior Pirates still get home-field advantage for the playoffs. The Palladian team (32-14) will be hosting the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League championship tournament starting Friday (July 29) at Serauxmen Stadium and the Serauxmen Sports Fields. Look for more information on the tourney next issue.
