Filmmaker explores empathy in diverse subject matter Max Cameron graduate Brett Harvey receives acclaim for documentaries SARA DONNELLY

Brett Harvey’s filmmaking career is going from strength to strength these days.

The Max Cameron Secondary School graduate’s most recent release, Ice Guardians (2016), a documentary about NHL hockey enforcers, was named Best of Film by Sports Illustrated and nominated for several awards at festivals across Canada and the United States. It was released this April on Netflix Canada, where it quickly became a trending film. “The response has been overwhelming,” said Harvey. During his high school years in Powell River in the 1990s, Harvey said he never dreamed of making movies, let alone having a successful career in the industry and travelling the world. $479,000 NEW OCEAN VIEW HOME

“Filmmaking was not a realistic option for me growing up,” he said. “Digital technology was in its infancy and quality video gear was virtually inaccessible.” Because film classes were non-existent at the time, he attempted to convince teachers to let him turn school assignments into video presentations. That tactic only worked twice; for an assignment on Macbeth and a project on an Italian painter, he said. “Those are the only two school assignments I still remember,” he added. Harvey excelled in sports at school and was captain of »2

The year he graduated he was recognized as one of two athletes of the year. “I remember him playing basketball and doing track for Max Cameron,” said Brooks Secondary School teacher Tony Rice. “He was a very well-liked student.” After graduating, Harvey volunteered for the local cable station while attending what was then Malaspina College. “I started shooting camera at local events,” said Harvey. “It was my only way to access video gear at the time, and I was able to ask technical questions to people who knew what they were talking about.” Harvey used the experience to get into Capilano College’s Media Arts Diploma Program. “From there I found my love: documentary storytelling,” he added. The first feature documentary he directed and wrote, The Union: The Business Behind Getting High (2007), was about the underground marijuana industry. “It was a small production that gained momentum we never could have predicted,” he said. At the time, cannabis was still considered a taboo topic that no one was interested in investing documentary money into, he

Logging truck traffic concerns residents

Search teams rescue hiker

Cranberry ratepayers raise safety issue before committee of the whole DAVID BRINDLE

Logging truck safety is always an issue in forestry communities. Powell River has been fortunate not to have a recent accident involving one of the large vehicles, but odds are it will happen eventually. City of Powell River councillor Maggie Hathaway said as much when the issue of log haulers and public safety was brought before committee of the whole on May 1. Jerry Eskes, representing a group of Cranberry ratepayers, 25 of whom were in the public gallery, pushed for action on logging trucks going through their neighbourhood. Eskes said rigs from logging activity in the Inland and Haslam lakes area use Cranberry Street a dozen times a day. He said he sees a colossal problem for the city to try to come to terms with full and empty logging trucks going through the city to log sorts north and south of town. The most visible and, perhaps, dangerous area is Marine Avenue, which is a provincial highway and Powell River’s busiest professional and retail road. Hathaway said the conflict between trucks, cars, bicycles and pedestrians on the narrow thoroughfare is an accident waiting to happen. “Every day I watch them going both ways along Marine and it’s only a matter of time because they’re

fully loaded and people are riding their bikes, stepping off the sidewalk and trying to cross the street,” she added. “There’s a crosswalk right in front of my office and what I hear when these trucks brake really scares me.” That fear is real. Within days last fall, there were five logging truck accidents

eas where there is a lot of logging taking place,” said ministry of transportation and infrastructure senior public affairs officer Leanne Flood. The ministry is responsible for regulating commercial trucking, including speed, height, length, weight of loads, proper licenses and inspections.

in BC, including two on the same day in Sechelt and Chase, and one that caused a fatality in Whistler. “While no added regulations were brought in following those incidents, the BC government has stepped up safety and compliance inspections on logging trucks and increased patrols of ar-


If legally loaded, licensed and insured, logging trucks are allowed to travel on Highway 101. “ T he ministr y ’s Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement (CVSE) officers patrol and check vehicles to ensure all commercial trucks operating on our provincial highways meet our strict

safety requirements,” said Flood. In Cranberry, Eskes said logging trucks are using a short section of Cranberry Street from Haslam Street to Lindsay Park. “That’s all too narrow, treacherous and unstable a road for those heavy hauling trucks,” said Eskes. “They’re using residential streets. Those are not industrial haul roads.” Eskes said the drivers are going through Cranberry because it is a shortcut. “Shortcuts compromise safety,” he added. It’s not just safety, according to Eskes. The heavily loaded trucks can damage infrastructure, he said. The city is responsible for roads within the municipality and Eskes said the residents are calling for weight restrictions, warning signs and a 30-kilometre per hour speed limit. The trucks come from Inland Lake and Haslam L ake, where Tla’amin Nation, through Tla’amin

Lake Contracting, is currently active on a community forest. “It’s our joint-venture partnership company, which Tla’amin Lake Contracting has with Goat Lake Forest Products, that is harvesting our community forest up there,” said Thichum Forest Products manager Craig Galligos. Thichum is responsible for Tla’amin’s natural forestry resources. Goat Lake handles the hauling. There are two alternative routes out from the logging project to the Tla’amin log sort north of the city, according to Goat Lake owner Rory Maitland. Both present their own set of problems. Maitland said going the opposite way on Cranberry Street is tight to navigate and the other option would be along Marine. “If there was an easy solution to this we would certainly do it,” said Maitland. “Routes are routes. There’s not a whole lot of options for us. We’re taking it seriously.”

A hiker trapped on an 823-metre ledge on Goat Island, north of Powell River, was dramatically rescued last weekend. On May 26, Powell River RCMP received a report of a missing hiker who was 16 hours overdue from a predetermined return time. After searching overnight, RCMP, Powell River Search and Rescue, and RCMP Air Services found the hiker on the ledge. RCMP called in the assistance of Royal Canadian Air Force 442 Squadron out of CFB Comox, who rescued the trapped hiker using a CH-149 Cormorant helicopter. This was the second incident in May where a hiker has had to be rescued in Powell River’s backcountry. On May 15, a Swedish hiker went missing in the Elk Lake Area. Search and Rescue assisted RCMP and, after looking through the night, the hiker was found the following day.

City flushes water main On Monday, June 4, City of Powell River will begin a water-main flushing program in Townsite, lasting until Friday, June 29. Water pipes will be flushed by opening fire hydrants throughout Townsite for about 30 minutes, between 8 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday. Homes on blocks affected each day may have discoloured water or see a drop in water pressure. Residents affected are advised to limit or avoid using water during flushing times and should not use water for about two hours after flushing. After two hours, the city suggests running a cold faucet for about five minutes to make sure the water is clear. For information, go to

Developer pays into affordable housing fund City of Powell River expects voluntary donation per unit built DAVID BRINDLE

One year ago, Darren Marquis Construction became the first builder to pay a contribution to the newly created City of Powell River affordable housing fund. Marquis said the fund is a good idea and a necessity. “It just needs to be handled in a means that works for everybody,” said Marquis, whose Westview development is now under construction above Oceanview Education Centre on Nootka Street. In every zoning bylaw the city’s planning department now brings before city council, residential developers are requested to make a voluntary community amenity contribution to the afford-

able housing reserve fund. Marquis said his was $7,000. The fund currently holds $7,500 in total, according to city senior planner Jason Gow. To date, the contribution required of developers is approximately $500 per unit or lot, which is half of what Ladysmith requires from developers for its fund, according to Gow. Other communities range from $5,000 to $10,000 per unit. “We would never go to that because that’s offensive,” said Gow. Contribution to the affordable housing fund is not, as some residents believe, extortion or a condition of rezoning, he added. Marquis said it is important that a voluntary donation be treated as such, but in the case of his development it was a condition of rezoning, so a donation to the affordable housing fund was made. Nanaimo has an established housing legacy reserve, which is allotted $165,000 in the budget

every year. The current balance is about $2.7 million, according to Nanaimo city planner Karin Kronstal. “The idea is modelled after City of Nanaimo,” said Gow. “They have essentially established a statutory reserve that is collected at the time of rezoning and is used to fund affordable housing initiatives.” Nanaimo has broad terms of references for its fund,


including strategically acquiring property for future development of affordable housing. Currently, Powell River’s reserve is collecting money with no statutes, according to Gow. “We don’t have terms of reference so at some point we’re going to have to deliver that and stipulate how the money is going to be spent,” said Gow.

Recommendations for rules on what money from the fund would be spent on might come from the city’s affordable housing committee, said city councillor Maggie Hathaway, who holds the housing portfolio on council. Her committee is considering a number of housing ideas that could be brought before council. “We want to do a housing authority study and we’re

looking for funding for that,” said Hathaway. Until terms of reference are established by council, it has the discretion to ask for contributions to any community amenity, including an affordable housing fund. “It’s going to be a long time coming,” said Marquis, “before there’s anything substantial in that account where it’s going to make any difference.”

Paper corporation divests two mills and operations centre for $175 million DAVID BRINDLE

The sale of two mills in the United States on May 25 means Catalyst Paper Corporation has only its three Canadian pulp and paper mills producing product, including in Powell River. Catalyst entered into an agreement with Hong Kong’s Nine Dragons Paper to sell its mills in Rumford, Maine, and Biron, Wisconsin, and the company’s US headquarters in Dayton, Ohio, for $175 million (US). The company’s US operations were purchased in 2015 for $62.4 million (US). “This transaction allows Catalyst to repay a significant portion of our debt and focus on our British Columbia operations,” said Catalyst president and chief executive offi-

cer Ned Dwyer in a company statement announcing the downsizing. The company is headquartered in Richmond and has three mills remaining in operation at Crofton, Port Alberni and Powell River. Catalyst is being pressured by United States Department of Commerce protectionist trade measures that target Canadian producers of uncoated groundwood paper. Catalyst’s BC mills are taking the biggest hit. “We continue to pursue opportunities to improve the competitiveness of our company and our industry,” stated Dwyer. “We also continue to work with the provincial and federal governments in our defence against the unwarranted imposition of US countervailing and anti-dumping duties.” The Nine Dragons Paper transaction is expected to close upon a favourable vote of Catalyst's shareholders at a meeting on June 11. The three major shareholders of the company, holding 87 per cent of outstanding shares, have agreed to vote in favour of the transaction, according to the statement.

years to reach this point of resolution in the wastewater treatment debate. In the worst case, Powell River’s submission is denied, but city officials have said that is a highly unlikely scenario. But on the outside chance Powell River’s plan is rejected, Brewer said the project would have to be deliberated all over again. “If we make application and we don't get funding,” said Brewer, “it would have to come back to council and the community to see if they want to carry and finance the whole thing or not.” Brewer said he fully expects Powell River and municipalities across the country facing similar major projects to receive the money. “ There's no way they can expect local government to pick up the whole

tab,” said Brewer. The best-case scenario is for the city’s share to be 17 per cent of the project’s cost, which was the rate for the Haslam Lake main trunk construction in 2017, but that is not probable for the wastewater treatment plant, according to Brewer. The most likely scenario is the federal government providing 40 per cent, the province coming through with 33 per cent and the city absorbing 27 per cent. Even at 27 per cent, the city will incur a debt of $17.9 million and impact Powell River’s 7,300 sewer users with an increase of $126 per year to pay off a 30-year loan. The third scenario, one which Brewer said he finds unthinkable, is paying for the whole thing. The cost per sewage user would be about

a $473 annual increase over the 30-year term. Treatment plant construction is $39.2 million. Approximately $5.9 million is added for general requirements, fees and contractor costs to start and complete the work. Conveyances from Westview, along Willingdon Beach Trail and Wildwood lagoon to the new plant total $8.6 million. An inflation rate of 2.26 million is estimated. The project cost escalates 17 per cent when factoring in contingencies of $11.3 million, including unforeseen and unexpected increases to design and construction. The total adds up to $67,316,000, and these are Class C estimates, with a wide margin of plus or minus 25 per cent to 40 per cent.

Grads set to march Brooks Secondary School grade 12 students to perform traditional procession SARA DONNELLY

Powell River’s high school graduation ceremony this Saturday at Hap Parker Arena is a rite of passage for grade 12 students and their families. This year approximately 180 students will participate. Along with speeches and musical performances, students will take part in something of a Powell River tradition: the Grand March. “It’s kind of the cornerstone of this event,” said Brooks vice principal

Jennifer Kennedy. “It’s a super traditional thing to do.” Grand marches began in the nineteenth century and were the customary start of a dance. It was an opportunity to see and be seen, and gives local spectators the chance to look at graduates’ dresses and suits on display. In Powell River, the Grand March dates back to at least 1970, according to Powell River Historical Museum collection manager Nikita Johnston, who searched through Powell River News archives for references to the march. A lot of planning goes into the graduation ceremony, including the Grand March. “We had a rehearsal for all of the kids to walk through to get a feel for what it’s going to be like on the big night,” said Kennedy. The graduation ceremony has

changed in recent years as many students opt to complete grade 12 earlier or later. It focuses on a group of students who have grown up and attended school together at the same time. “It might be one of the last times they’re all together as a group,” said Kennedy Speeches by students Catriona Hopper, David Nadalini and Jing Zhong, and musical performances from Rachel Peckford and Take 5, which has three of it members graduating, will round out the festivities. “We’re so excited for this week,” said Kennedy. “We spend all year planning for it and it’s over in a flash, but it’s so exciting to see the students look so lovely and be celebrated by the community.” The ceremony begins at 7 pm; doors open at 5 pm.

A cost breakdown of Powell River’s new Townsite wastewater treatment plant has given City of Powell River council an accounting of the project’s $67 million dollar price tag. Estimates and final plans for the plant and its natural integration theme will be packaged into the city’s application for provincial and federal infrastructure funding. The call could come any day. There is an urgency for the design to be completed by the city’s contractor, Associated Engineering, according to councillor and finance committee chair Russell Brewer, because the grant criteria will require detail for a project worth millions.

Milestone moment When graduating students from Brooks Secondary School take part in the Grand March on Saturday, June 2, they mark the end of one journey and start of another. The march has been choreographed and rehearsed; participants know the beginning, what happens in the middle, and the eventual outcome. Their school lives have also been based on routine: scheduled classes, whether elective, mandatory or prerequisite; predetermined Pro-D days, holidays and summer vacations; as well as assignments and exams. Arduous or enjoyable, these activities all have a known beginning, middle and end, just like the Grand March, and result in few curves in the road. Sure, difficult situations arise and difficult decisions have to be made on occasion, but a structure exists from kindergarten through grade 12. Whatever happens, there But once the march is always another question, concludes and Dry Grad comes to an end, another chance, and another those routines and window of opportunity known outcomes are replaced by the roller coaster of life and decisions that determine futures, one question at a time. And guess what? Sometimes there is no answer, other than going by a gut response and letting the cards fall where they may. Whatever happens, there is always another question, another chance, and another window of opportunity. Extreme highs and lows are inevitable, and plenty of twists, turns and detours will follow. It is all part of the wonderful, sad, exciting, disappointing, euphoric, perplexing, surprising, unfathomable, gratifying and, hopefully, long journey each student will begin on Sunday, June 3. Whether plans include post-secondary education, entering the workforce or starting a family, change is imminent and outcomes are, well, who knows? When each of us thinks back on our own graduation, we remember the excitement of marking that milestone. We will never see some of the students we shared our school lives with and may only see others at reunions. Others will remain close friends for life. Support systems for getting through hard times change as new friends at work or university replace those who travelled the same halls for a year or two, or maybe all 13. For some, school is one of the best times of their lives; for others they just begin to grow and develop after leaving the halls of learning. Either way, it is a time to celebrate an accomplishment shared by parents, teachers, extended family and friends. In Powell River, they will all pack Hap Parker Arena to show their support, good wishes and congratulations, while reminiscing on what was, what could have been and what is.

LETTERS » Chickens build community I was very happy to read that City of Powell River is considering changes to the poultry bylaws [“Council considers poultry propositions,” May 25]. I live in Westview and have two chickens. My husband built the chickens a movable coop and run; this is called a tractor. It is not a new invention and, arguably, is the best way to keep chickens. Every week or so we pull up the stakes and move the coop a few feet. This way the chickens have fresh grass and bugs to eat, there is no build up of manure and it keeps predators wondering where the chickens are. Regarding the manure, I rake it up every time we move the coop and then give it to a woman who is rehabilitating her land to grow a garden. And, regarding the predator issue, there is a bear that is known to visit the back of our

property, and our neighbour’s, to eat apples in the late summer and early fall. Moving the coop away from this area keeps the chickens safe. Last summer, to avoid the aforementioned bear, we had the coop on the front lawn. It was amazing the number of people who walked by and said how happy they were to see such a lovely coop with such nice chickens inside. Young and old, singles, couples and families, it brought back fond childhood memories for some; others felt good to see we were raising local food (eggs). Parents showed their kids the chickens and they were excited to visit them. Talk about community building with only two simple chickens. It was great! Then, the bylaw office showed up. No more chickens allowed in the front yard. The reason is because cars going by scares and stresses the chickens. This is not true. Although chick-

ens are not the smartest creatures, they do understand that they are safe in their coop. They take very little notice of cars, cats, crows and dogs, et cetera. They feel safe in their zone. My request is that while the city considers changes to the poultry bylaw, to include allowing chicken tractors anywhere on the household property. Anyone is welcome to come by and have a demonstration of how the chicken tractor works. Simone Bova Michigan Avenue

Day of Code brings schools together Grade six and seven students gain valuable skills at fun technology event SARA DONNELLY

School District 47’s first Day of Code took place at Westview Elementary School last week. Some 200 grade six and seven students from around the district participated in a program that split students into random teams to master six technological activities. Not unlike a sports day, code events focused on team building and having fun while learning valuable skills. Westview Elementary vice principal Lisa Lewis said the big win was observing the collaborative spirit among students. “The best thing is seeing all the kids from the different schools working together,” said Lewis. “The groups are totally mixed, they’re not with their friends. It’s been really neat to see how they’re working as teams.”

Activity stations included sphero design, microbits, Pac-Man live, Lego jousting and “Code a dance,” an activity that had students take well-known song choreography and translate it into a code. Moves from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” and “Macarena” were on display in the Westview gymnasium. “They’re watching a dance video and then writing the instructions out for another group on what those steps are,” said event organizer Matthew Hull. “It’s not literal code but taking the moves they see and translating them into text.” It is a fun way to employ progressional, computational thinking, he added. Sphero design was a favourite with many students. The activity used small robotic balls as part of a design challenge. “Sphero was the most fun,” said grade seven student Naomi Krowitz. “You get to control it and make it have sounds.” Fellow grade seven student Kaitlyn Penson also said she liked sphero. “But I liked the microbits as well,” she said. “You can do rock-paper-

Sure, they get to wail on expensive objects and provide some of the most memorable sound effects for favourite classic orchestral works (think Mahler’s Sixth Symphony, Stravinsky ’s Rite of Spring or Bernstein’s West Side Story), but most of the time, classical percussionists find themselves playing second fiddle to the violins.

a little hit and miss. That is precisely why Pacific Region International Summer Music Academy (PRISMA) Festival organizers have added a special concert to their summer 2018 lineup. Voices Rising will take place on Wednesday, June 20, at Evergreen Theatre and be devoted exclusively to PRISMA’s fivemember percussion section, a handful of faculty guests and the music of four BC composers. The event builds on the success of 2017’s Raven Tales, a concert that followed a similar model. It was the brainchild of PRISMA maestro Arthur Arnold and Bill Linwood, one of the academy’s longest-serving faculty members. “The response was excellent last year; we had a really good audience and people were engaged with the program.” said Linwood, who is also principal timpanist with the Victoria Symphony and curator of its popular Explorations of Contemporary Music series. “It was so exciting because it was much more experimental [than other concerts at PRISMA],” said Arnold. “It was the alternative; the indie or the artsy approach.” Voices Rising will feature a wildly different instrumentation for each piece, ranging from a lone snare drum at centre stage to a ninemember chamber ensemble.

The breadth of genres and influences is quite staggering, said Linwood. One work by Gavin Bryars employs a small army of keyboard percussionists. Another by composer Tony Genge, who performed in Powell River recently during Townsite Jazz Festival, seeks inspiration from the gamelan groups of Indonesia. “Gamelan is one of the original kinds of percussion ensemble,” said Linwood. “The piece is sort of built on these revolving motivic and rhythmic patterns using a Balinese collection of instruments like gongs, small cymbals and metallic xylophones. It’s incredibly complex, yet it appears quite simple as you’re listening.” Linwood will perform on the aforementioned snare drum, delivering a work by Juliet Palmer that also features a spoken word component. “The whole premise of the piece is looking at the truth from different perspectives and how we tend to perceive the truth in today’s society,” he said. Quotes from Theodore Roosevelt, Barbara Bush and the Bible will be woven among snare rudiments from the American Civil War era to create a thought-provoking soundscape. “It’ll make you look at percussion in a completely different light,” added Linwood.

Remaining pieces come courtesy of Marcus Goddard, another veteran PRISMA faculty member and longtime associate principal trumpet with the Vancouver Symphony. One, called “Solus,” is written for a single trumpet and live electronics. No two performances of this composition are alike, due to the improvised bed of sounds created by Goddard’s improvisations into a loop pedal. For Linwood, supporting and shedding light on the works of BC composers is part of a larger responsibility to secure the future of an art form he holds so dear. “It’s going to sound like a cliché, but the music of today becomes the music of tomorrow,” he said. “We all have a responsibility to bring forward the best from the past and to try to bring forward the best from the present. It all speaks to the future.” General admission for Voices Rising is $15 and free for PRISMA passholders. The concert takes place at 7:30 pm on June 20 at Evergreen Theatre. A cash bar will be open before the performance and there will be no intermission. The 2018 PRISMA Festival runs from Monday, June 11, to Saturday, June 23, with six other symphony and chamber concerts to choose from. For a full list or to purchase tickets, go to

Brooks athletes head to track provincials Students brand new to track and field advance quickly SARA DONNELLY

A contingent of 18 athletes from Brooks Secondary School’s track and field program are currently attending the BC High School Track and Field Championships in Langley. Many of the qualifiers are attending the competition for the first time; for a few of the athletes, their discovery of a talent for their chosen sport was a very recent discovery. “There were a couple of kids who just fell out of a tree,” said coach Scott Glaspey. “They are brand new and just jumped in.” Kayden Piniewski and Mackenzie Sayer took up hurdling very recently, with no prior knowledge of the sport. “We have these two kids who said ‘what’s a hurdle?’ a month ago,” said Glaspey. Aside from latent ability, many of the students

agreed their success comes down to the coaching expertise of Glaspey and former Olympian Connie Polman Tuin. “It’s a cool opportunity to have them helping us,” said Sayer. “They give us proper technique.” Piniewski agrees with Sayer’s assessment. “We’re so thankful they are willing to volunteer their time with us,” she said. “It’s amazing.” Haedyn Drosdovech, who came in first in the 100-metre tryouts, said the notes he receives from the coaches have made a big difference in his speed. “They’ve given me pointers that have made at least half a second difference in my time,” he said. Calli-Ann Abbott, who recently returned from her sophomore year at University of Hawaii on a track scholarship, is back training at the Timberlane Park track for the summer. Following in Polman Tuin’s footsteps, Abbott is a heptathlete. Heptathlon is a multidiscipline track and field event comprised of seven events: 100-metre hurdles, high

jump, shot put, 200 metres, long jump, javelin throw and 800 metres. “Connie and Scott were my high school coaches; they’re both amazing and helped me a lot,” said Abbott. “I wouldn't have gotten to Hawaii without them.” Glaspey has been coaching track for a long time, he said. “Since I was a kid,” he added. “I started in the

mid-70s.” He was also a coach to Polman Tuin. Having someone of her calibre is invaluable to young track hopefuls, said Glaspey, and having her focus on hurdles, long jump and triple jump has given Brooks a strong reputation. “In those three events we are now provincially really tough,” said Glaspey. “We send the kids who can do

those events to Connie and she builds them into killer bees. Within two or three years people will fear Brooks when it comes to hurdles.” Track and field, like many sports in the community, is competing for the same group of athletes. Youth who excel at soccer, volleyball and hockey are often the same ones who could do well at track, said Glaspey.

Often it is only after other sporting commitments end that the athletes can join the track team. If they had the time to dedicate solely to track, Glaspey believes the team would excel even more. “We have people who are trapped in other sports for much of the year,” he said. “Just imagine if we had those guys for three months instead of three weeks.”

Kings add size to blueline Hockey team announces three more commitments as new coach makes his mark DAVID BRINDLE

A big defender has been added to Powell River Kings’ blueline for the team’s 2017/2018 BC Hockey League season. At 6’4” and 205 pounds, Brenden Saether has size and BCHL experience. He played in 14 regular season and 13 playoff games last year with Surrey Eagles, including two game sevens. Along with size, Kings head coach Tyler Kuntz said Saether, who is from Abbotsford, has mobility and the ability to succeed at the Junior A level. “What I see is a big player with a long reach, a big stick, he’s mobile and can

turn to get pucks,” said Kuntz, of his new stay-at-home defender. “He’s extremely fit and a real worker, and off the ice he’s a great kid who is really hungry to get better.” Kings also announced the commitment of 16-year-old forward Rowan Miller, who was born in Arizona, but is a longtime resident of Vernon. Miller played last year with the South Island Royals in the BC Major Midget League, scoring 14 goals and 14 assists in 39 games. He also played as an affiliate in eight games with Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s Victoria Cougars, collecting two goals and two assists. Miller can skate, has skill and is intelligent, according to Kuntz, who first saw his potential at the Kings’ development camp in Kamloops, which ended on May 13. “We gave Rowan an information overload as to what our team wants to look like and how it wants to play,” said

Kuntz. “He grasped things really quickly and showcased a lot of the things we’d discussed in the camp games.” A third commitment announced by the Kings in only a week will bring a Buono back to the lineup for the 2018/2019 season. Christian Buono, younger brother of former blueline stalwart Carmine Buono, who was in the green and gold jersey for 145 games and played out his eligibility with the Kings last season. Christian is a 17-year-old forward who played last year with Vancouver Northwest Giants in the BC Major Midget League. He was the team’s leading scorer, top forward and MVP. Christian also dressed for the Kings last year as an affiliate for four games and picked up two assists. Since becoming head coach and general manager on May 1, Kuntz has signed Buono, Saether, Miller, forward Matt Fawcett and defender Ben Wozney.

The basics: Bodyweight training We make muscle and increase our cardiovascular fitness by putting our bodies under controlled stress. The overload principle, imposing a greater load on a muscle as it adapts, is the route to follow to make increases in muscle mass and cardio fitness, to a point. But we shouldn’t undervalue training with only the weight of our bodies. Bodyweight training is closed-chain exercise. This means the exercises are performed with the hand or foot in contact with a stable surface such as the floor, a wall, or a box. For example: the squat and the pushup are closedchain exercises. These exercises transmit less force to the joint and are more functional movements. Bodyweight training, for me personally and as a trainer, is linked to the playfulness of our youth, moving our bodies in ways that made us laugh and enjoy exercise. The beauty of it was it didn’t seem like exercise. It’s the playfulness, laughing and enjoyment that can make training easy to incorporate as part of our lifestyle rather than a bandwagon we jump on and fall off.

FRIDAY FLEX By Melissa Sloos

Bodyweight training is a great way to re-establish movement patterns. Adding p r o g r e s s i v e l y h e av i e r weights into our workouts will certainly build muscle, but it can also put excessive stress on our joints, especially if we are adding more weight before safely mastering the level we are at. While lifting, we should be continuously aware of our breathing and of our body’s alignment. We have all heard about pushing through a difficult set, but pushing through when we have bad form is just doing more damage than good. Be honest with yourself. Are your legs or arms shaking, knees caving in? Are you

hyperextending your back, letting your core go, or holding your breath? Taking your training back to bodyweight even once or twice a week is a great way to go through movement patterns to re-establish good habits, and to spend time working on muscle activation while giving your joints a little break. Many bodyweight exercises also demand involvement from the small, controlling muscles that are extremely important in joint stabilization, which may be missed when we focus more on working the larger, flashier muscle groups. Bodyweight training incorporates flexibility and playfulness into our strength training, and can add some creativity into our workout routine. As we get better at doing push-ups from our toes, we can begin to take limbs out of the equation, lifting a foot, or an arm, perhaps. We can incorporate yoga, martial arts and even dance, to push our bodies to move with power, stability, and strength. Take the wonderfully named “dive bomber.” You begin with your hands and feet on the floor with hips

raised in an inverted “V” position. For those of us who are familiar with yoga, this is downward facing dog. Then we lower our shoulders and glide our chest just slightly above and across the floor as we come through plank to an upward facing dog position, or our chest facing up to the ceiling with arms long and our hips just off the floor. Then we do it all in reverse and come back to the starting position. This exercise takes flexibility, stability and a great deal of strength, and it’s fun. If we always move in the same way, in the same plane, we’ll begin to inhibit the plasticity of our bodies and minds that can come from creative and free-flowing movement.

Bodyweight Mini This requires a timer, some water and a comfortable working space 30 seconds of burpees 15 push-ups 30 seconds of high knees 15 inchworms 30 seconds of speed skaters 15 sit outs 30 seconds of bear crawls 15 single leg bridges, each side Repeat this four times

One of the best arguments for including some bodyweight training in a workout regime is that you can do it anywhere. At home, at the beach and in your hotel room, “everywhere” becomes your gym. We shouldn’t put up barriers when it comes to get-

ting our bodies moving. It’s about doing what we can with what we have where we are, and always prioritizing the positive. Melissa Sloos is a certified group fitness instructor, spin instructor and studio manager at Coast Fitness.

Powell River’s Junior Gymnastics Team recently made its first-ever trip to the 25th Annual Christy Fraser Memorial Invitational meet in Langley. “This was their first big competition that hosts close to a thousand athletes,” said Powell River Gymnastics and Cheer administrator Karyne Bailey. “It was their first time as a team travelling to the Lower Mainland.” The annual meet takes place over two days. Junior team coach Desiree Young said she was extremely pleased with the girls’ performances as every athlete placed in the top 10 for their divisions. As a combined team, the six gymnasts brought home three gold, two silver and three bronze medals, and 21 top-10 placement ribbons. Olivia Raffin was the overall winner for the

Junior Olympic Level 1 category. She attained five medals, including gold all around, a gold for beam, silver medals for bars and floor and a bronze for vault. Larissa Laing achieved the gold medal for vault, a bronze medal for bars, sixth for floor and seventh for beam, placing her fourth all around. Panagiota Rounis took the bronze medal for bars, fourth for beam, seventh for vault and ninth for floor, placing her seventh all around. Samantha Lambert brought home fourth place for bars, fifth for beam, sixth for floor and eighth for vault. She placed sixth all around. Kyla Randle came in fourth on floor, fifth on bars, ninth on beam and tenth on vault, placing her ninth all around. Gabrielle Marshman competed in the higher Level 3 Junior Olympics category. She brought home a sixth-place finish for vault, eighth for beam and ninth for floor, placing her tenth all around. The junior team will travel for one final Lower Mainland meet before heading into summer training, where they will learn new skills for the upcoming 2018/2019 season.
