Marine Trail proposal gets public hearing Emma Prestwich

Comfortable waiting Elyse Enwright, a summer work exchange student from Quebec, sits on the new bus stop bench on the corner of Otter Point Road and West Coast Road. The bench was carved out of a single Western cedar log by Sooke Marine Industries, and donated to the Communities in Bloom program which aims to improve the showcase communities in B.C.

he CRD Land Use Committee A voted to move Ender Ilkay’s controversial Marine Trail Holdings development to public hearing on July 13, in the next stage of a process that has been contentious ever since it was first brought to the board. Committee members Mike Hicks, Langford Coun. Lanny Seaton, Sooke Mayor Janet Evans, and Colwood Mayor Dave Saunders voted in favour, while Metchosin Mayor John Ranns voted against the project. “Our primary concern is to determine the public will,” he said. “Nobody can honestly say the public wants this. The first of our tests as public officials has failed.” Ranns said the land use committee had been “seduced” by planning staff into thinking that the logistics of the project were more important than public opinion. The whole CRD board, which does not have the right to vote, pushed the land use committee to reconsider the decision or refer it to the whole board for advice. The board addressed Minister Ida Chong’s refusal to change the voting structure, which the province initially set up, and several coun-

cillors said they thought it was because the province didn’t want to get involved in changing policy. Ranns expressed his “disgust” with the voting structure and the fact that any further decisions were solely in the hands of Committee A, who is largely supportive of the development. “Folks, this is it,” he said, speaking to the whole board. “This is our last chance to have any influence on this.” Ranns also denied Hicks’ claim that the development was the only way to protect the parcel of land from being clear-cut, and suggested it could be turned into an amenity and economic support for surrounding communities the way Pacific Rim National Park has been a tourist boom for Tofino and Ucluelet. Hicks said in a prepared speech that if rezoning was approved, the developer would not build within 150 metres of the trail and that this was not the beginning of sprawling development between Jordan River and Port Renfew. He said the government wasn’t interested in buying the land after it went up for sale, even after he repeatedly asked them. He said Marine Trail Holdings would keep 86 per cent of the land undeveloped and dedicate half of that acreage for park-

Treasurer steals from seniors’ society Almost $2,000 gone Emma Prestwich Sooke News Mirror

A local seniors group is hurting financially after one of its members stole $1,800 from the organization’s purse. The treasurer of the Sooke Seniors Activity Society confessed in a letter to stealing over $1,800 in funds gathered from activity bus fees and memberships. She cited that she was given little guidance when she first took over the role of treasurer, and a lack of access to the program that would allow her to remit employer deductions and view up-todate information. She didn’t communicate her confusion, and instead quietly delayed making deposits into

the group’s bank account so she could “borrow” money on a short-term basis. “This worked quite well, but keep anything in the dark and it mushrooms,” she said in the letter. She said she used the money for groceries and tobacco and then gambled to try to recoup the losses. “I am truly ashamed of and sorry for the things I have done to burden the Sooke Seniors Activity Society,” she said, promising to pay the money back in full. Kathleen Forde, vicepresident of the society, who didn’t want to name the treasurer for privacy reasons, said she isn’t planning to press charges. The treasurer was receiving disability payments, she said, and most likely needed the money.

“I can see it was just too tempting,” she said. Forde said she keeps the society’s financial records on her computer, otherwise she might have never found out about the missing deposits. She has been passing the letter around to members on the

bus, not only for information, but also to encourage them to donate. Two people have already stepped forward, and the society has enough money to make it through July, but she’s still angry about the theft. “It’s sad that they’d do that to seniors.”

land. “We can preserve and create an old-growth forest, buffering the circle route highway and marine trail... or we can expose 100 per cent of these lands to the cycle of clear-cut logging,” he said. Mayor Janet Evans also spoke in favour of the project. She said she grew up in Port Renfrew and saw the trees “logged, replanted and logged again.” “I believe the applicant will protect the Juan de Fuca park,” she said. Ilkay has said the resort, which would consist of 257 parttime housing units, was designed in public consultation with the residents of surrounding communities and the Pacheedaht First Nation, on whose land the development infringes. The Pacheedaht have generally supported the project, citing the jobs it will bring to their community and plans to build an artists’ venue to showcase local Aboriginal art. Victoria Coun. Philippe Lucas said the commitment to protecting parkland didn’t change the fact that the proposed development was “way too

big”, stretching over five kilometres. “It’s like telling a cancer patient that he’s already 86 per cent fine, so don’t worry about the other 14 per cent. What size would be considered too large?” In response, Juan de Fuca Electoral Area head of planning Bob Lapham admitted that there wasn’t much public consultation focusing specifically on what size residents thought was appropriate for the resort. The board also voted to receive a staff report from Victoria Coun. Vic Derman, who questioned access to fire services for users of the isolated resort and the likelihood of vegetation being cut away to lower the fire risk. “You are putting as much as 1,000 people out in a forested area without adequate fire protection,” he said. “How in God’s name can that be considered?” Hicks said the province would continue to protect the forest and the developer would provide infrastructure to protect the buildings. Conversation continued about the date of the public hearing. Hicks suggested it be held in August.

Bears seeking food in backyards Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

Sooke resident Darla Banner’s father was having a barbecue at his house on Church Road when an uninvited guest showed up -- a hungry black bear. He saw the animal from about 10 feet away sniffing at the food when a neighbour’s dog ran over and “gave the bear a nip” that caused the black bear to raise its front legs before retreating. A couple of days later, a neighbour witnessed a sow and her cubs in the yard, knocking over a part of the fence. Another neighbour on Talc Road saw a bear climbing into their yard as well, she said. “Jesus, they can’t all be the same bear!” Banner said she hears people spotting bears at Whiffin Spit on a daily basis, and that they’re addicted to garbage. In particular, by the Stone Ridge estates development on Beaton Road where bears are “getting garbage even though they’re putting it away.” “I phoned to talk to

This bear cub was spotted and photographed on West Coast Road by Phoebe Dunbar. Bears are becoming more prevalent in developed areas due to a possible shortage of their natural food and the availability of human garbage. the conservation officer on Wednesday, and have heard nothing back,” said Banner. Conservation Officer Rick Dekelver confirmed that calls about bear sightings are up in Sooke over this same time last year, with an

increase of about 50 incidents. “It’s been busy,” said Dekelver, who speculated it could be due to increasing population and summer weather arriving later. He insisted that the best thing to do in

these situations is still to call the conservation hotline, (1-877-9527277) even if it takes awhile to hear back from an officer. “We have two of us for the lower Island from Renfrew to Cobble Hill, so this is happening not just in Sooke.” Despite the limited resources, Dekelver said the call centre filters the messages received in priority sequence and officers will contact residents to work out a management plan. Some residents have taken matters into their own hands -- for instance, locals around the Stone Ridge area has been knocking door to door distributing brochures on things like how to minimize attractants. “People bought into it and the garbage disappeared and I haven’t seen any reports of bears in the area, said Dekelver. “The bears (seem to be) going elsewhere to try to find food because there was nothing in the area they were acquiring.”

Travel protected from the unexpected. You may be surprised to learn that medical care outside of B.C. can be very expensive especially in the United States. For example, the average cost of emergency in-patient hospital care in the United States often exceeds $1,000 USD per day, and can even be as high as $10,000 USD per day for intensive care. And since Health Insurance BC (formerly MSP) may cover as little as 10 per cent of the medical expenses you could face when travelling outside B.C., the Ministry TRAVEL INSURANCE of Health Services WITH strongly advises JANELLA buying additional WILSON medical insurance even if you only plan to leave the country for one day.

It’s wise to check the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada website at www.voyage. gc.ca. Select your destination and the Entry/Exit Requirements section will provide you with the travel insurance requirements. If you have confirmed coverage through your credit card or extended benefits program, be sure to obtain the proper documentation to meet the entry requirements of your destination(s).

INSURANCE OUTLOOK

This summer could be a scorcher.

Many B.C. residents already have limited travel insurance coverage through their credit card or employer extended benefits program. However, this coverage often doesn’t have a high enough dollar limit or cover you for the number of days per trip you require.

MIRROR

Know before you go. Reviewing your travel insurance is increasingly important as some countries are now monitoring travellers’ coverage prior to crossing their borders. In fact, it was recently announced that several European countries are advising travellers to be prepared to show proof of medical coverage and may also impose a minimum coverage requirement.

Travel with peace-of-mind.

If you find that your current coverage is inadequate to completely protect you from the financial devastation an accident or injury could cause, investigate additional coverage like emergency excess medical insurance, to be protected and enjoy peace- of-mind during your travels. Remember to purchase your coverage before leaving B.C. Coverage is available through private insurers, such as BCAA, who offer at least five million dollars in emergency medical coverage. Always carry your declaration page with you when travelling as proof of your insurance coverage. For more information about travel insurance talk to your local BCAA Insurance Agent today.

TESTIMONIAL #217

250-642-5050

Council gave first and second reading to draft Bylaw No. 480, Sign Regulation Bylaw. Coun. Maja Tait noted that sandwich boards, particularly those littered along Highway 14, are difficult to read causing a distraction for drivers and raises issues of public safety. There were concerns voiced from the business community in attendance who said that the signs are a major source of advertisement for stores, shops and restaurants that aren’t immediately visible from the main roads. Sushi on the Sea owner Ralph Hull said the “sign is critical to our business.” Council responded by saying, “we’re don’t want to put anyone out of business, we’re trying to bring business to Sooke.” Enforcement of the sign bylaw will be relaxed until a time that wayfinding signs can be installed said Tait. Staff is working with the province for allowance to put up the sign posts

but it’s not in budget for this year and will have to be taken on by the next council. “We’re not going to take away signs, but make sure they’re legible and don’t distract motorists,” she said. Coun. Shelia Beech said she wants to make sure that this bylaw helps all businesses. Council granted first and second reading to Bylaw No. 441, Talc Place Park Disposition Bylaw. The proposal is to split and sell the under-used parkland into three sections, with proceeds going into the Park Reserve fund: Area one: owners of 6839 Talc Place to purchase a portion of the park adjacent to their property and consolidate with their lot; Area two: subdivided and rezoned and sold as one lot; Area three: owners of the property on the east side of the park to purchase the nearby land and consolidate with their lot. Zoning Council gave first and second reading

to Bylaw No. 498, Zoning Amendment Bylaw (270-89) 2139 Church Road. The applicant is looking to rezone the 0.61 acre property from Village Residential Zone (R-1) to Town Centre Residential Zone (RS-1) to accommodate the building of residential duplex units. Coun. Tait brought up a personal observation of cars regularly speeding down the hill on Church Road. She said motorists can see what’s ahead of them but visibility is poor for pedestrians, many of whom are children. “It’s a big accident waiting to happen,” she said. She recommended that something be done about slowing down cars in the area, and staff said that enforcement is up to the RCMP. Bylaw No. 501, Zoning Amendment Bylaw (270-90) was introduced and given first and second reading by council. The applicant wishes to rezone 6553 Helgesen Road from Village Rural Residential Zone (RR1A) to Small

Lot Residential Zone (RS-3). The 5.001 acre property is adjacent to land in the Agricultural Land Reserve to the north, a school to the east and residential property to the south and west. The applicant has not yet applied for subdivision.

EPCOR An interim threemonth agreement with EPCOR Water Services Inc. was approved by council, authorizing Mayor Janet Evans and Chief Administration Officer Evan Parliament to execute the agreement. Expiring Sept. 30, 2011, Parliament said it is only meant to be a temporary solution to run the wastewater utility. “There is only one scheduled council meeting in July which is tonight, and there is one regularly-scheduled council meeting in August on Aug. 8. That leaves this council basically two council meetings to determine what to do with the utility in terms of its long-term options,” said Parlia-

ment. The cost will be $75, 519.77 per month for the duration of the agreement. New services required that are part of the fee include a low pressure pump monitoring program; enhanced development, growth and capital planning; and enhanced customer relations. Coun. Bev Berger opposed the motion, and pointed out that the agreement was $18,000 more expensive than what the district paid two months ago, and that it’s the same cost per month as the previously proposed 21-year deal with EPCOR. “I sort of have a huge problem with that being that the community just said no to that cost as well as to the 21 years,” said Berger. “I can’t support it -I think that we should be looking at a one year deal rather than doing these months and months and months so we can, like you said, take the time as a council to discuss where we go a year from now.”

Deer causes vehicle to crash into hedge Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

A deer that suddenly jumped out in traffic caused a man to crash his car into a hedge on Whiffen Spit Road last Wednesday. The deer dashed onto the road and a car in the opposing lane was able to stop, but the man couldn’t avoid a collision and made an emergency maneuver. “I just seen it after I cleared the other car,” he said. “I don’t know how I missed it because it must have come down this road here,” said the driver, who wished not to be identified. There were no inju-

ries to the man or the dog that was in the car during the accident. RCMP Const. Matt Rowat who was at the scene along with the fire department and

a tow truck said they were lucky to escape unscathed. “This guy didn’t have a chance to stop, he swerved out of the way and hit the ditch and

Milne home part of Sooke’s history Driving from Sooke northeast across Sooke River Bridge today, the foliage obscures one’s view of the historic Milne home high on the riverbank at one’s left. This 1898 photo shows the Milne family on the front porch, which faced the bridge. The senior Milnes, Edward and Susannah, had arrived in Sooke in 1884 from Scotland, with their grown children, Edward and Hugh and three daughters. Within the next few years the senior Milnes had passed away and it was Edward Jr and his wife Janet Kerr who established the pioneer frame home in the photo. Shown are Edward Milne Jr. (for whom Edward Milne School was named) standing alongside his wife Janet, who is holding their toddler Nan. In front of them is their youngest son Fred. Their daughters Janet and Isabella are next, with their elder sons Edward and William. The enterprising Edward Milne Jr. established a large farm, became a shopkeeper and postmaster, and even ran a horse stage. The area got the name Milne’s Landing because he built a wharf to offload supplies brought in from

Victoria by water. When the BamfieldVictoria tree-to-tree telegraph line was established in 1889 this house served as a telegraph station. By 1913 telephone service had been established, with the first switchboard set up in the Milne home. Isabella, or Bella as she was known, was the first telephone operator. In time, youngest daughter Agnes, known

as Nan, succeeded her to the duty and became chief operator when a separate building was constructed next to the roadway. A feature of the Milne home that I remember fondly was the flock of colourful peacocks and peahens that paraded proudly on the wellkept lawns. In those quiet days, their raucous calls could be heard for miles.

While Moss Cottage (1870) is Sooke’s oldest standing building, followed by Woodside and Burnside (1884), the Milne home is next in line. Though the frame house is empty now and sagging on its foundations, it is a reminder of more than a century of proud Milne family history. Elida Peers Historian, Sooke Region Museum

OUR VIEW

X marks the spot

It’s almost all over, except for the whining. The people of British Columbia signed petitions requesting a referendum on the Harmonized Sales Tax and the province came through. They sent out ballots to all eligible voters and even with the mail strike, the ballots arrived. Okay, so now it is time to put your X where your thoughts lie. The decision to keep or extinquish the HST is not as easy as signing the petition was. We all hated the way the tax was brought in, and it led to Gordon Campbell stepping away from the premier’s job. Most people, if they were ...the tax asked, would likely state itself isn’t the that the tax itself isn’t the issue.The issue is the extra issue... tax now paid on items that were previously tax exempt, like new homes. If they had left it the way it was, there would be no question that taxpayers would embrace the HST. Most people have no problem paying 12 per cent taxes on luxury items, like cosmetics, tobacco and alcohol, but they baulk at paying extra taxes on necessities. And people are wondering where all the promised savings are and when do they start adding up. Lowering the tax to 10 per cent over a few years is an appeasement which may or may not happen. If we have a provincial election in the next while, there is no guarantee that the lowering of the tax will occur. British Columbians pay some of the highest taxes in the country and it is slowly but surely becoming a province of the working poor and the increasingly impoverished elderly. You now have your opportunity to have your say but the ballots need to be in the hands of Elections BC by August 5.

YOUR VIEW

Have you changed your mind about the HST since the petition??

I didn’t have an opinion before, but I spoke to some people in the provincial government that has made me decide to vote against it.

No, I’m against it. We have enough taxes, I just think it’s to line their pockets.

I don’t think there should be a tax on anything.

No, I’m still against it. My job is in hospitality.

ANOTHER VIEW

EPCOR now gets more for less S ooke citizens recently sent a message to District of Sooke Council when they defeated the 21-year agreement with EPCOR. That message was for council to be more responsible in the use of their tax dollars by getting the best deal for Sooke, whether with EPCOR or another service provider.

It’s clear that council did not listen, because on Monday, July 11, they extended the contract with EPCOR for three months to September 30, giving them a massive raise for providing less service. Here are the details: EPCOR gets a whopping $18,000 per month increase in fees. From January to June 30, 2011, they received $57,000 per month and the new monthly rate is now $75,519. The District of Sooke’s justification for some of this increase is that EPCOR is providing enhanced development, growth and capital planning, and enhanced customer relations. In fact, the new contract states that the district is now responsible for the customer relations service, and the development growth and capital planning service provided by EPCOR is no different than what they had already been providing. In the previous contract, which

ended June 30, EPCOR was required to provide a range of community relations, customer service and communications services. These included: Sec 4.6 Customer Service, Sec 5.1 Full Communications Plan which included: identify stakeholder groups issues and concerns, increase level of knowledge in community regarding wastewater and inform customers regarding Operators role for operations and maintenance. Sec. 5.2 Communication Methods such as newsletters and mailings, website update, open houses, presentation to community groups, school programs, Community Sponsorships. The contract noted: “The costs of these services are included in the fee for Basic Services.”

required, as part of the Basic Work under Sec. 6.8, that EPCOR assist the district with growth and development planning including review of extensions to facilities, impact of development, review of the Official Community Plan, subdivision plans and development likely to impact the provision of sewer services.

In the new contract, the District of Sooke is now responsible for “community relations and all related twoway communications with customers, residents, business and stakeholders.” So, it appears the district is taking on the customer service and community relations duties that EPCOR had originally been responsible for providing. In addition, the communications services, which had been provided as a basic service, are now being called “enhanced services” to justify the massive fee increase.

This is exactly what Sooke citizens who submitted forms to defeat the 21-year contract were speaking out against. These kind of antics by council are a disgrace to our community and an insult to taxpayers.

The

previous

contract

also

So, EPCOR is now being paid extra for this work in spite of the fact that from 2007 to 2009 a full sewer service review and growth forecasting was done in conjunction with the recent Official Community Plan review. Plus, they provided updated forecasting and capital projections for the defeated 21-year EPCOR deal. Why do they need to do it all again now at a much higher price?

My fear now is that the fee increase (your money) will be used to tell everyone how good EPCOR is and that they deserve a long term contract at any price. Rick Kasper Sooke

Ballots need to be sent in To the person(s) who stole my HST lawn sign - what part of democracy do you disagree with? The government ads (that we’re paying for) are framing the HST referendum as a simple choice between 10 per cent and 12 per cent. That’s disingenuous to say the least. They lied to us during the election. Then Clark said she wouldn’t lower the HST because it would be buying us with our own money. Now she’s promising to do just that… after another election, and only if the economy allows it then. Think it’s going to happen? In that case I have some oceanfront land in Castlegar to sell for a really good price. Even if we believe the rate will actually go down to 10 per cent, there are still those items we weren’t paying seven per cent on and are now. The list is really long. Get your ballots in folks!

Councillor’s A new assumptions solution don’t add up After years I attended last Monday’s council meeting and I wanted to comment on Councillor David Bennett’s assumption on the sewer Alternative Approval Process. Over 2,000 residents signed a petition against council’s plan to sign a 21-year contract with a private sewer company (EPCOR). Councillor Bennett claims that since the total population is close to 10,000, then the remaining 8,000 must be in favour, and therefore 80 per cent of the citizens approve of the private contract for sewers. I question this logic as it would mean that Bennett himself (considering he received close to 2,500 votes last municipal election) is opposed by roughly 75 per cent of the population. I’m being sarcastic, of course, because you should never make assumptions like those. The facts are simple: Councillor Bennett won his election in 2008, and the citizens won their fight regarding the sewer privatiza-

of listening to the banter of local politicians and residents alike, I thought this would be an opportune time to weigh in on the issue I am most concerned about — how we communicate and how this affects us not merely on a family level but on a community level and a global level. You can see the dysfunction everywhere in our society. You can see the way we play the blame game right across the board. I suggest that what we say and do in public is no different than who we are in private. If we are not careful in our interactions with each other we will hurt ourselves, our families and polarize our entire community. Marital abuse, drug abuse, child abuse, physical abuse are the byproducts of not being able to communicate in the moment and not being able to respectfully listen to each other’s point of view. This is how wars start and how nations disintegrate. Isn’t it time to reevaluate how you want others to hear you?

I wish to present a model that will require a different way of seeing things. This model involves putting a lot of effort into listening and our ability to share ideas. Most important it involves the need for council and community members to soften their stance and hearts with regard to how their personal needs are being met as opposed to what would be best for all of us, “what we want our community to be.” Here’s the model in a nutshell. We all get to have our say and so do the politicians. Yet we must come up with a third solution — our solution. That’s the one plus one equals three solution. Be respectful, listen, stop talking and end the polarization by refusing to take sides. Actually, there is no right or wrong just “ignorance of the facts.” Don’t be like the wrong doer. Be of good cheer and remember your life is short and it is not what happens to you in life but what you do with what happens to you. For the times they are a’changing! Mark Ellis Sooke

Riot control No city, including Vancouver, has enough police to control a large riot like the recent one at the last hockey

game. The police obviously need help. There is probably lots of help available from the military. If there is not enough full-time military in the area, then call in the militia (reservists). I was once an enthusiastic reservist for three years immediately after World War II, underaged and an accomplished fibber. We trained twice a week and beer was available in the canteen. It would not take long to train young reservists, whose goal is to serve Canada part-time, the dynamics of riot control. What’s better is the federal government pays for it all. They would have to learn: (a) Club control, to avoid fractured skulls. (Just the right tap, please). (b) The contemplated use of armoured carriers and the finer points of water cannons, mace, etc. (c) To assist the police in a disciplined manner in attacking, arresting and containing the bad ones. Naval units should be present as well because they are extensively trained in damage control and fire suppression. Our militia has a good history in Canada of being called out immediately after World War I and World War II started. One reservist,

Sir Arthur Currie, from Victoria, become our most famous general in World War One (despite suspected embezzlement of funds). My unit was called out in 1948 to assist in the Fraser Valley Flood. (We sure worked hard and long). As our reserve units become more experienced, the elite ones can form a “Bonkers Brigade” to assist any Canadian community, when invited to do so. No this is not similar to the British hiring Hessian regiments to put down the American Revolution. Nor is it similar to the statement of the great Napoleon- “Give ‘em a whiff of grapeshot” (I don’t think he was alluding to wine or brandy). Let’s give our willing reservists the opportunity to help protect Canadians, their property, and above all, to assist our police. We will be a stronger community. G.B. Miller Shirley

Response to editorial It is interesting to read the column Our View in the Sooke News Mirror, July 6, which expresses concern for the loss of agricultural land in the CRD. The writer has divorced the issues raised by the proposed Marine Trail Holdings development in the Rural Resource Lands from those issues raised by the proposed developments in Central Saanich. Those who have closely followed discussion at the CRD Board meetings, letters to the editor and presentations from the public or read the Dogwood Initiative website Vancouver Island is Not For Sale understand that the people opposing these developments

SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 2011 Cont’d from page A9 next to the Juan de Fuca Park and in Central Saanich farm land know these rezoning requests are two sides of the same coin. These rezoning requests are an attempt to break the Regional Growth Strategy and create an open season for densification of development in all areas of the Capital Regional District. Rosemary Jorna Sooke

The saga continues In the latest act in the Marine Trail saga, soon to begin its fifth season, Mayor Ranns appears to be the odd man out. He liked the Committee A voting block so long as it agreed with him. But then there was that pesky court case where the “buy a vote” scheme was found to be totally bogus. So now he would like the rules changed again. He says that the first duty of an elected official is to follow the will of the people as determined by the official. Wrong. The first duty is to act within the

laws of the land. Otherwise you have surrendered the rule of law to special interest groups and the whim of politicians facing re-election and seeking to garner votes. While the spectacle of the CRD suing its own members for doing their legal duty is delicious, it would be expensive. Time to cancel this no longer funny series. Peter Martin Victoria

Hedge height fight Sooke Zoning Bylaw No. 270 violates the property rights it claims to protect. Its preamble purports among other things, to secure adequate light, recognize land value and to conserve property values. However, the bylaw deliberately and explicitly excludes hedges from its definition of a fence. Unlike other municipalities, in Sooke, a hedge may take the

form of a densely foliaged living fence and be allowed to grow without municipal restriction to a height of over six metres. Property owners who once paid for the enjoyment of a beautiful view must not only suffer its loss but swallow an enforced depreciation, by thousands of dollars, of their property’s value. The fence definition should be revised to be fair to all Sooke property owners so that hedge height be restricted to the same maxima as non-living fences. Jonathan Berelowitz Sooke

Protecting forests and farm lands Re: Feast or Famine? This article makes an important point, but is misinformed about the work non-profit orga-

nizations are doing to protect southern Vancouver Island from urban sprawl. Dogwood Initiative agrees that there is a major problem of conversion of farms and forests in the region. That is precisely why organizations such as Dogwood Initiative are campaigning for the Capital Regional District board to enforce its own Regional Growth Strategy. The Regional Growth Strategy is one of the key tools for protecting our farms and forests from reckless development. By sticking to that plan (which was agreed to by the entire CRD board), farmland in Central Saanich, as well as forests along the Juan de Fuca Trail, will be protected. Rest assured, we are putting just as much effort into protecting local farms and food as we are into local forests. Will Horter Executive director Dogwood Initiative Victoria

JDF Search & Rescue joins Project Lifesaver Project Lifesaver Greater Victoria announced they are expanding the Project Lifesaver program to Sooke, thanks to the involvement of the Juan de Fuca Search and Rescue group. Designed to track and rescue those with cognitive conditions who tend to wander, this service answers a critical need for protecting people at risk of wandering, including those with Alzheimer’s, autism, Down Syndrome and dementia. Clients enrolled in the service will wear a wrist-watch sized radio transmitter on their wrist or ankle. The transmitter constantly emits a radio frequency signal, which can be tracked regardless of where the person has wandered -— even into a densely wooded area, marsh, concrete structure such as a garage, or a building constructed

with steel. When a loved one goes missing, care givers notify locally trained agencies and they are dispatched to the wanderer’s area. The average rescue time remains around 30 minutes. Juan de Fuca Search and Rescue is pleased to be able to offer this new service to the citizens of Juan de Fuca Electoral Area and the District of Sooke. There are no fees charged for this service or any other services performed by Juan de Fuca Search and Rescue to the clients or public. Families and caregivers can enroll their loved ones by contacting We Rage We Weep Alzheimer Foundation, 250-920-9573 (www. werageweweep.com) the Search and Rescue Society of British Columbia, 250-384-6696 (www.sarbc.ca) or Juan de Fuca Search and

Capital Regional District Notice to Electors

Within the Water Distribution Local Service Area of the Capital Regional District Alternative Approval Process for CRD Bylaw No. 3782 – Authorizing the borrowing of up to $13,000,000 for the purpose of acquiring, designing and constructing water distribution facilities in the western communities of the Juan de Fuca Distribution Area. Notice Is Hereby Given that the Board of Directors of the Capital Regional District (“CRD”) proposes to adopt Bylaw No. 3782, “Juan de Fuca Water Distribution Facilities Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 1, 2011” for the Water Distribution Local Service Area comprised of the municipalities of Metchosin, Colwood, View Royal, Langford, Sooke, Highlands (that part within the RUCSPA set out in Bylaw No. 3373) and a portion of the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area (East Sooke Participating Area) of the Capital Regional District (“CRD”). The intent of Bylaw No. 3782 is to authorize the borrowing of up to $13,000,000 for the purpose of acquiring, designing and constructing water distribution facilities in the western communities of the Juan de Fuca Distribution Area. Based on the 2011 Five-year Capital Plan, $13,000,000 will be needed to fund the water distribution system infrastructure replacement and upgrading program. Approximately 45% of the capital plan will be funded from cash flows with the balance from borrowing through Bylaw 3782. Funds will only be borrowed based on actual cash requirements and approval of projects by the Juan de Fuca Distribution Commission. The debt servicing costs will be recovered through the retail water rate. It is anticipated that the incremental increase to an average household per annum will be approximately as follows: $10.64 (2012); $9.00 (2013); $8.45 (2014); and $6.00 (2015). The Water Distribution Local Service Area comprised of the municipalities of Metchosin, Colwood, View Royal, Langford, Sooke, Highlands (that part within the RUCSPA set out in Bylaw No. 3373) and a portion of the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area (East Sooke Participating Area) is the participating area for this service.

The elector response form must be in the form as established by the CRD and forms are available from the CRD on request. The only persons entitled to sign elector response forms are electors of the area to which the alternative approval process opportunity applies. The alternative approval process opportunity applies to the Water Distribution Local Service Area comprised of the municipalities of Metchosin, Colwood, View Royal, Langford, Sooke, Highlands (that part within the RUCSPA set out in Bylaw No. 3373) and a portion of the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area (East Sooke Participating Area) located in the CRD.

Eco-tourism in Port Renfrew Emma Prestwich Sooke News Mirror

Port Renfrew, long a logging town, has realized they can capitalize on the protection of their natural assets to keep the community alive. The Port Renfrew Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Ancient Forest Alliance, the advocacy group that leads tours of the majestic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Avatar Groveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, to funnel more tourists into the area and feed the local economy. The two organizations launched an info centre Thursday, July 14 that will hopefully be a hub for visitors looking for information about Avatar Grove and a boom for local businesses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we used to rely on to sustain Port Renfrew was logging, but the tables have turned,â&#x20AC;? said Rosie Betsworth, chamber president. She said while the partnership with an environmental group initially raised eyebrows among area residents, the forest alliance isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a â&#x20AC;&#x153;radicalâ&#x20AC;? group, instead one that aims to educate people gently about the importance of protecting oldgrowth forests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their application is soft and it works.â&#x20AC;? And it is working. The Ancient Forest Alliance holds tours once a month through the grove, and an average of 50 people show up each time, many from across

Submitted photo

Avatar Grove in Port Renfrew is drawing visitors to the area to view the unique old growth forest. Canada and Europe. TJ Watt, campaigner and photographer for the alliance, said thousands have come through the grove since he first discovered it in late 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are five, six, seven cars there on an average day,â&#x20AC;? he said. The maps available in the info centre provide directions on how to reach the grove, a 20-minute drive from the village centre and then a 15-minute hike. It features the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest Douglas fir and Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gnarliest tree, covered with a 10-foot

Sooke Says

Just For You!

wide burl at its base. Watt estimates the oldest tree in the grove is 500 years old. Betsworth said the flow of visitors coming to see the grove is translating into real growth for the village, and she can understand why. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The town is small, unique, green and clean,â&#x20AC;? she said. Everywhere you turn thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something else to see.â&#x20AC;? The community now has its first strip mall- a row of businesses with a restaurant, a market and the info centre, as well as a growing list of

accommodations, eateries and eco-tourism opportunities. She admits that the quality of the West Coast highway needs to be improved, and the switchbacks need to be gentler. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pressure is onâ&#x20AC;? to keep the Pacific Rim Circle Route, a logging road which connects Port Renfrew to Lake Cowichan, maintained. Watt thinks local businesses are on-board with this new tourism strategy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find that most business owners have made the connection between protecting the earth and raising funds,â&#x20AC;? he said. However, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet assured that the tourists will be able to visit Avatar Grove indefinitely. On Wattâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second visit to the grove in February 2010, he noticed surveyor tape around some of the trees. Since then, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been â&#x20AC;&#x153;a long, drawn-out battle for the last year and a halfâ&#x20AC;? to get the grove protected. The government is currently consulting with Teal-Jones Group, which has logging rights. Watt thinks that with the frenzy of people coming in to see the trees, it would be in the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interest to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be way too backwards to cut it down at this point.â&#x20AC;?

For people looking for a volunteer opportunity that’s both rewarding and just a little bit different, the Sooke Fire Department is hiring. The department is running its annual recruitment program now for positions in the fall, said Deputy Fire Chief Richard McLeod. “(We want) men or women 19 or older, with a class five (driver’s) license and who live in the municipality,” said McLeod. There are 10 available spots in total, with interviews starting at the end of August until early September. Successful applicants begin training in October on weekends from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. to get their firefighter level one certification. “They’re issued a pager, and then train with the rest of the department for December, January and February (on Thursday

nights), then go back to regular training on Saturdays and Sundays to get their level two.” While McLeod encourages anyone to apply, the process is quite intensive and includes an agility test, a written test and a criminal record check in addition to the interview. Once accepted, there are regularly scheduled tests and homework assignments. Regular attendance to all training sessions is mandatory. “Its quite a commitment to get into the department,” he said. He also said applicants should be in

good physical shape as volunteers have to be able to drag hose, carry equipment and get up and down ladders during training exercises as well as going out to calls with staff. Everything takes place at the fire hall on Otter Point Road, and all training materials and associated costs are looked after by the fire department. The program has been known to encourage more permanent stints as well. “A number of our guys have gone on to be career firefighters,” said McLeod. To apply, you can pick

last a lifetime. The T’Souke Nation will also have displays of traditional art and carvings and explain the uses and importance of the cedar tree in their culture past and present. Clay Whitney from the BC Fruit Testers Association will be at the fair on Saturday to help you identify the apples you have growing in your garden or give advice on how to prune your fruit trees. You could be the designer of the fastest, custom made zucchini for the Great Sookeini Race on Saturday, September10. Get your thinking caps on, find the perfect costume and practice your tricks, as another family favourite tradition is the Kids and Kritters Pet Parade on Sunday, September11. This year’s catalogue will be available soon and coming to a store near you. A very talented student from Journey Middle School, Bri Martin, did the art work for the 2011 cover. Her brilliant design will have one’s imagination reeling for creative works to be entered into this year’s fair. This will be our second year that we require advance entries and this year’s date will be September 2. We have taken modern science and technology to go green and make it easier and faster for you and our volunteers to enter your articles. If you can get your entry in by August 21, then you can come to the Fall Fair Flea Market at the community hall on August 27 to pick up you tags. You may drop off your entries at Shoppers Drug Mart or mail them to the Sooke Fall Fair Association at P.O. Box 291, Sooke, BC V9Z 0S9.

The Sooke Fall Fair is excited about our theme for this year, ‘Science in Action” and celebrating the International Year of Forests. Science is all around us and we use it every day whether we are baking scrumptious cakes and pies or arranging different plants together to help ward off harmful bugs. Making sure the soil composition is correct and adding compost (natural fertilizer) allows plants to thrive and give delicious and nutritious fruit and vegetables or the biggest pumpkins or blooms on flowers. The cute and cuddly cavy, rabbits or perfect poultry need extra special care, nutrition and attention to be the best in show. There are the special fermenting processes that fruit and grains go through to give us the best beer and finest wines. The process of dyeing fibres can be natural or with the help of science to colour fabrics and yarns to create exquisite quilts or superb shawls and needle works. Photographers use the eye of the camera to capture nature or people in breathtaking poses we want to share and may otherwise miss out on. Digital enhancing allows pictures to stand out and give us a completely different point of view from the creator. Carvers and hobby crafters can take burls or fine cut wood to create beautiful furniture or treasured pieces of art. Turn the lathe gently to form beautiful bowls and utensils to

It is now up to you to create, bake, grow or compose your own works and think recycle, green and science.

Ancient petroglyphs disappearing See it now, before it’s gone Emma Prestwich Sooke News Mirror

The famous petroglyphs at East Sooke Park have been here for centuries, but they may not be for much longer, due to natural erosion caused by wind and water splashing up against the rock. The petroglyphs, which are estimated to be between 200-3,000 years old, have slowly faded over the years, and now one of the designs, believed to be a small fish, is nearly indiscernible from the rock’s surface. It’s impossible to preserve the designs by rubbing, a practice used by geologists where a ball of coloured wax is rubbed over a piece of fabric, because whoever made the design only skimmed the surface of the rock. The images are carved into sandstone, which has a rough crystal surface that collects dirt and

is difficult to see. The creators bruised the surface using a hammer-rock to reveal the lighter crystal. Some more modern images have also appeared over the years, further obscuring the images. Thinner, bolder scratchings of stick people, initials and numbers mark several of the rocks at Allridge Point. Nancie Dohan, coordinator of environmen-

tal interpretation with CRD parks, said the petroglyphs are protected by Heritage B.C. and it’s illegal to touch them. However, this hasn’t stopped vandals, and she also said CRD staff do regular patrols on the beaches. Randy Chipps, from the Becher Bay First Nation, said legends tell him the giant seal creature carved into the rock is an elephant

seal, which acted as a kind of ‘game-warden’ for the community. There may have been a mammal whisperer, he said, who enlisted the help of the seal to manage the community’s fish intake so they didn’t deplete local species. The seal would tell the mammal whisperer which species were in danger, and animal’s size would scare people away from over-fishing.

Eye Examinations Available Drs. Justin and Lesley Epstein, and Dr. Netty Sutjahjo, Optometrists, provide complete eye health and vision exams at IRIS in Victoria, Sidney, and Langford.

East Sooke petroglyphs in danger of fading away The nearly invisible design underneath the seal depicts the five types of sea life harvested by the people of Becher Bay, Chipps said. “They’re markers signifying a nation,” he said. He said while the marker of the seal no longer has any practical significance, he’s worried that the historical monument will disappear. But he’s not concerned about losing the stories he knows about his people, the oral histories that have been passed down through “When you can no longer tell your story, you’re no longer alive.” He concedes that nature will take its course and the images will eventually disappear. Dohan said since it’s illegal to tamper with the petroglyphs, she would never consider touching them up. Dohan and her interpretive staff do regular tours of East Sooke Park and the petroglyphs during the summer. The next tour is July 23, a guided adult hike through the entire park. Meet at 10 a.m. at the kiosk in the Aylard Farm parking lot, off of Becher Bay Road.

Loggers advance to Western Canadian Championships Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

The Sooke Loggers emerged bruised but not battered with four wins and a pair of losses at this weekend’s men’s Senior B provincials at MacDonald park in James Bay. It was a gloomy day and they had their first game against the Nanaimo Wheatsheaf delayed by about three hours due to rain. Still, a thin but supportive crowd showed up to cheer on their teams despite the less than ideal weather conditions. TheLoggersstruggled against the Wheatsheaf all tournament long that player manager Brian Banner attributed to an inadequate batting performance against Nanaimo’s amazing pitching. In the bottom of the third Sooke was already down 6-1. “Scott Lieph pitched the final really good, we just didn’t get our bats going,” said Banner. However, things started to look up after the 7-2 first game blowout. The Loggers followed up their loss with a 11-3 victory over the Swiftsure Seals, and then a double-header against the Strawberry Vale Braves that saw an 11-0 shellacking against the Seals late Saturday afternoon and another 10-3 victory on Sunday morning. Success continued on Sunday beating the Parksville Red

Sooke Logger Chad Bryden gets a hit during game one of the men’s Senior B provincials on Saturday at MacDonald Park in Victoria. Sox 4-0. They faced off against Nanaimo once more in the final game on Sunday, with a slightly more dignified 2-0 loss. “We had lots of chances, we had a couple runners on in the seventh inning but just couldn’t get it done,” said Banner. Shawn Koster walked away with top pitcher honours for the tournament pitching 18 innings going 3-0, and Banner was awarded top batter hiting .529 with 17 at bats.

The Loggers are headed to the Mainland for the Vancouver Challenge Cup this weekend which will be a round-robin format against three other teams in the division: the Burnaby Bulldogs, South Hill Giants and the Invermere Braves. In August, the team is headed to Stonewall, Manitoba for the Western Canadian Championships which take place from Aug. 12 to 15.

Kayak polo provides extreme sporting experience Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

What’s a cross between basketball and hockey and played in the Cooper’s Cove? Kayak polo at Rush Adventures, said Rush assistant manager Mike Loch. Every Sunday from 5 p.m. until 8:30 until October, for $10 you can join up to 11 other regulars and beginners on the water to play a few matches of this relatively unknown sport that can be more intense that you might think. “It’s full contact, so we have to wear hockey helmets,” said Loch. “You know -- ramming boats, pushing people over, anything is pretty much allowed so it’s pretty full on.” The object of the game is to be the first of two teams to reach five or six points. A ball that is similar to a heavy volleyball is thrown into the centre and each team tries to gain possession of the ball and shoot it, either with a paddle or by throwing it, into an opposing floating net about a metre above the water. Each team also has a goalie who’s job it is to prevent that from happening. Players can either bring their own gear -- which consists of a play boat (small single-occupant river kayak), a paddle (normally a whitewater paddle which is wider), and a spray skirt (material that stretches around your waist to prevent water from entering the kayak) -- or rent a limited number of boats that Rush has available, size permitting. For safety, a lifejacket and face mask is required. “A lot of people will wear a hockey helmet,” said Loch. While contact is permitted, there are certain fouls that will be called such as whacking someone’s hand with a paddle, or reaching across an opponent’s boat to hold them in place, he said. The shop also offers recreational kayaking by reservation or drop in the rest of the week. A full selection of equipment is available, and staff are on hand to instruct customers on safety and also stroke technique before sending them out for a few hours. Kayak polo has been run by Rush owner Scott Taylor for about five or six years. Taylor also owns and operates Stickleback West Coast Eatery next door. If you have any questions give them a call at 250-642-2159 or go to www. rush-adventures.com.

The bites were on at Camper Creek in Port Renfrew last week. At any time you could look around and see a fish on — now that’s fishing!

Derby in Port Renfrew this weekend Fishing in Sooke the last few days has slowed a bit from the week before. Pinks have remained steady but chinook action is down. The whales have been present shaking things up as they are feeding on chinook salmon as well. You cannot bet on the water conditions, as of late, we have seen flat seas and no wind. All we need now is summer to happen to make things right. Otter Point has been the hot spot for chinook, either off the point in the tide rip or trolling to the east towards the tin shack, or to the west to Gordon’s Beach. The good depths are between 50 and 70 feet but it doesn’t hurt to go deeper to 90 plus to find the big ones. Nice quality pinks are showing in good numbers, fishing anywhere from the beach to the middle of the strait will produce. Secretary Island is as good as any to find pinks, try fishing off the southern tip of the Island in 200 plus feet, that should work.

Troll a pink hootchie or squirt behind a Hot Spot flasher red, green with 28 to 40 inch leader works good, a good depth of 40 to 100 feet should find them. Pinks are a nice way to introduce none-experienced anglers, young and old, to salmon fishing. They fight and if one gets off it usually doesn’t take long to hook another pink. It’s two weeks until the Sooke Salmon Enhancement Derby being held on the BC Day long weekend. Tickets can be purchased at the Crab Shack and Eagle-Eye. Port Renfrew remains strong, either fishing the beach or out at the Swiftsure Bank. There’s lots of life out on the bank which is a good indication of good fishing to come. It’s been a few years since the fishing and the marine life have been like that. Lots of birds, tons of coho fining on the surface with krill and feed on the surface. This weekend is the 11th Annual Davey Derby being held at the

Port Renfrew Marina on Friday and Sunday. Tickets are $50 a rod with the proceeds going to salmon enhancement and charities in need. Last year the derby hit the $10,000 mark in

funds raised for good causes. Tickets can be purchased at the marina and Island Outfitters. Keep your rod tip up! Kiwi Magic

Sooke Fine Arts Show celebrates 25 years Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

The Sooke Fine Arts Show turns a quarter of a century old this week, and is celebrating the milestone in style. Along with showcasing hundreds of pieces of art from local Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands artists, there are several special anniversary events planned, said Sally Manning, chairwoman of the Sooke Fine Arts Society. The district donated grant money to the society to produce a video called “It’s About the People,” that will be playing for the duration of the show. The video features interviews with people behind the show including some of the original show designers. “It was made by (local artist) Kay Lovett. It’s a 15-minute film that is going to be shown in a special area in the gallery -- we’re calling it the retropod,” said Manning.

The 25th Sooke Fine Arts Show opens this week and runs to August 1.

Another addition this year is still a work in progress. Designed by volunteer and artist Norene Schmuck as well as Lovett, it’s a “community affair” where anyone can drop by and add little pieces of broken coloured pottery pieces to contribute

to the finished product. “It’s built by anyone that wants to participate in it.” July 26 is designated as “Toonie Tuesday,” -- from 6 p.m. until 8 admission is only $2. There will also be a special musical performance by the Sooke River

Bluegrass Music Festival Society. A regular event that Manning urged people not to miss is the purchasers’ preview night held on July 21 from 7 p.m. until 10. Tickets are $25 each and it is “an opportunity for people to

New artist on Stinking Fish Tour Benjamin Yong Sooke News Mirror

East Sooke artist Bonnie Coulter may be a newcomer to the Stinking Fish Studio Tour, but she is no stranger to art. Recently retired, Coulter is focusing full time on painting, and will be displaying her work during the tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My background is actually in architecture -- I started out as an architectural draftsman.â&#x20AC;? It was sketching out illustrations of buildings that first drew Coulter to art about three decades ago. She sold her first painting in 1986, but her infatuation started long before that. Her home workshop is nestled in the heart of East Sooke, and the first noticeable thing besides the nature-themed creations hanging everywhere is how immaculate the space is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can you tell Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a bit of a neat freak?â&#x20AC;? asked Coulter who said she does her best work when things are organized. Paintings and mixed-media artwork adorn the walls -- a colourful starfish stretched out in a frame; a landscape of a vast empty field in front of the House of Blues in South Carolina; a three-dimensional plaster mold cast of Coulterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. Coulter, who is also an avid gardening enthusiast and writer, said she can feel creative by

Bonnie Coulter joins the Stinking Fish Tour as a guest artist. just going for a walk among the shrubbery that surrounds her house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I start thinking about my favorite plants, and they all have a character,â&#x20AC;? she said. Certain plants behave in different ways in the garden and some of them are really stiff characters, other ones are just flouncy little floozies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I love, the personality.â&#x20AC;? Besides vegetation, Coulter said her daughter Angela Menzies, who just happens to be an artist and is one of the tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founding members, also provides much of her inspiration. Almost everything displayed is for sale during the tour and is

the result of about six months of work. She joins eight other guest artists in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tour, who have to complete two stints before being considered a permanent member. Stinking Fish -- which is the First Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word for Metchosin, is a self-guided rural tour taking visitors to Sooke, East Sooke and Metchosin. Artists open up their studios to display and sell their work. Besides painting, artists also create pottery, woodwork and even instruments. The event is in its 11th year and runs from July 23 to Aug. 1. For detailed information go to www.stinkingfishstudiotour. com.

Kids and music: a great combination Artz4Kids at Sooke Fine Arts Show

T

his year visitors to the 2011 Sooke Fine Arts Show and Sale will have the opportunity to listen to some of Sooke’s finest young musical talents as they play during Artz4Kids afternoon, Tuesday, July 26 from 2-4 p.m. “Last summer when I read an article by Sooke music teacher, Trish Branson, about her students and their accomplishments, I though featuring young Sooke musicians would be a perfect fit for the Sooke Fine Arts Show and Artz4Kids Day,” said Sally Manning, who acts as both chair, and entertainment coordinator, of the 2011 show. “Since this year is the 25th anniversary of putting on the show in Sooke, we felt it was the perfect time to highlight many of the artistic talents of Sooke’s youth,” said Manning. In addition, the EMCS Youth Arts Display, now in it’s third year in Jenny’s Bistro, will showcase

art from students at Edward Milne Community School. The display will also provide a backdrop for the children’s arts and crafts activities offered during the afternoon. Music for Artz4Kids is being coordinated by Trish Branson who has run the Music For Young Children Program from her home studio in Sooke for nine years. “There is a great deal of talent in Sooke and many terrific music teachers,” stated Branson. “At the moment I have 12 students ranging in age from 6 to 14 who will be performing on the piano. These children are all playing at Conservatory Levels.” Tom Lee Music is again supplying a Steinway B grand piano again this year for musicians to use during show performances. “However, we would welcome children playing other instruments, as well,” said Branson. Any kids interested who would like to be considered for the Art Show performance may contact Trish Branson

at 250-642-2498. Branson assisted many of the students with their music selections, but they have input into their choices as well. “Their pieces range from classical conservatory selections to jazz, pop, blues and contemporary styles.” The performance pieces are designed to be listened to while enjoying the show and the various activities available to the kids during Art4Kids afternoon. “I think children appreciate good quality music and it’s very interesting to them to hear their peers playing,” added Branson. Artz4Kids is a way to provide children 12 and under with a fun afternoon filled with crafts, activities, prizes and, of course, musical entertainment provided by other children their own age. “I think it’s great that we can foster connections between children and adults who value the arts. In this way, kids are encouraged to continue in their arts education,” said Bran-

son. There is no charge for the Artz4Kids activities, and children under 12 receive admission free with an accompanying adult. The 2011 Sooke Fine Arts Show opens to the public at the SEAPARC Leisure Complex at 2168 Phillips Road, Sooke, on Saturday, July 23 and runs for 10 days through Monday, August 1. Hours are from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. daily, except for July 30 and August 1, when it closes at 5 p.m. Tickets are available at the door at a cost of $8 for adults and $7 for seniors (65+). Show passes, good for the entire 10 days of the show, are available for $15. For further information about special events and directions go to www.sookefinearts.com The Sooke Fine Arts Show Society, a volunteer, non-profit organization founded in 2006, promotes awareness of the visual arts and appreciation for local artists from Vancouver Island and Gulf Islands.

July 21, 2010 ParkWatch keeps vigilant It’s the time of year again for the Juan de Fuca Regional ParkWatch Society to deter would-be car thieves at local parks. ParksWatch spokesperson Marie Mills reported on July 15 that an enlarged contingent was working this year. It’s a part-time volunteer activity for everyone involved, but this year more volunteers are in on it and fewer hours are needed from each individual. Preventing vehicular crime is common sense. Close your windows and lock your doors and put your valuables out of sight or take them with you.

July 19, 2006 Reckless youth keep RCMP busy The RCMP responded to numerous complaints in the area of Grant Road on Friday and Saturday night. Calls were made to police about a group of about 40 youths who had been drinking in public, damaging mail boxes and traffic signs, causing disturbances, vandalizing cars, and a host of other offences. The youths were responsible for tying up finite policing resources for many hours, and assistance had to be requested from the West Shore Detachment on Friday evening. Several arrests were made and parents were contacted to assist in picking up their children. July 18, 2001 All Sooke Day better in person anyway TSN has backed out if its decision to showcase the Sooke logging events due to scheduling conflicts, but the show will go on. Despite the lack of national coverage, the 67th annual All Sooke Day is gearing up to be a fun-filled, entertaining event. “I guess the (the audience) will have to come now,” said Betty Hansen, All Sooke Day committee member. Committee chairman George O’Briain said the event is important for the district. “All Sooke Day is a traditional family event that belongs within the

hold” until storage capacity at the community’s primary reservoir is increased. The Greater Victoria Water District proposes to triple capacity at the Helgeson reservoir by adding one million gallons storage. However, developers may have to wait. To date, the water board has only agreed to calling for plans for the estimated $2.7 million project. There has been no firm commitment from the district that the project will ever proceed.

July 17, 1991 Chevron new addition to town Growth in Sooke has triggered Chevron to open up a new gas station. Fred Moore, manager of the market development division of Chevron Canada Ltd. said the timing is right for expansion. “Sooke is certainly one of the growth areas in our province,” he said.
