ack in February of 2006, the District of Sooke decided to purchase a new aerial fire truck for $580,967 plus another $11,000 for additional small equipment for the truck. To pay for the cost of the new fire truck each residential homeowner and business would pay $14.35 per year for residential taxpayers and $104 per year for businesses. At the time, it was stated that the new aerial truck would replace Engine 204 which had reached the end of its 20-year life span. It did not meet pump-rating capacity requirements for 2005 and was in need of approximately $30,000 in repairs. Up to that point the District of Sooke had leased its fire apparatus which ran at about $4,800 per month. At the time it was also said that the approval to purchase vs leasing would have

to pass through the alternate approval process and if money was borrowed it would have to be approved by the Inspector of Municipalities. Taxpayers can now reach into their wallets once again as the district is purchasing another fire truck. This one is not new, it will be a used 2006 E-One Rescue Pumper with a price tag of $229,000 plus delivery charges. This new truck will once again replace Engine 204. Fire Chief Steve Sorensen says Engine 204 suffered wear and tear when it was sent to Kelowna to help fight the fires, although money was paid for its use. If Engine 204 was repaired and upgraded it would have cost the district $30,000$40,000 and would still not be considered a front line vehicle. The vehicle, at most, said Sorensen has four more years of life. “We would be putting a whole lot of money into a truck that qualifies for vintage plates,” said Sorensen.

He also said they were not looking for any additions to the fleet. Sorensen told council that used fire vehicles, like the one they wanted, did not come up for sale very often and they had to jump on the opportunity as two of the three he saw for sale were already sold. Councillor Dave Bennett agreed and said time was of the essence if they wanted to get the 2006 pumper truck. Money for the new rig will come from general reserve funds which CAO Evan Parliament says is there, as there is not enough money in the fire reserve fund. “We would be making a loan to the fire reserve fund,” said Parliament. “We’re not borrowing any money, we’re just shifting it around,” said Sorensen. “We’re taking $250,000 now to save money later.” The recommendation to purchase the used rescue pumper was passed by council.

CAO openly apologizes to the public Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

District of Sooke CAO Evan Parliament is apologizing to the public for a poor lack of judgement. On June 15, he was stopped by the RCMP for a minor traffic infraction and was then asked to blow

into the breathalizer and the result was a “fail.” He has been charged with impaired driving and has had his license suspended for 30 days and his vehicle impounded for 90 days. He was not charged under the Criminal Code but rather received a charge under the Motor Vehicles Act.

“I’m serving my penalty now,” said Parliament. “I take full ownership, full responsibility. “ Parliament said he is offering his services to the RCMP and will share his story with others. “This is the first time, the only time,” he said.

Marine Trail Holdings still holding Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

“An absolute assault on the governance of the Juan de Fuca,” is how Mike Hicks, regional director for the JDF Electoral Area, described the decision by the Capital Regional District Board to stall any decisions which would be made on first, second and third reading on Ender Ilkay’s Marine Trail Holdings development by the Juan de Fucal Land Use Committee A. The rezoning application was to come before the committee for first and second reading on June 15. After a lot of discussion the board made the decision to request more information, another report and also more clarity on the voting structure for the JDFEA after a meeting scheduled with Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Ida Chong. Director Alice Finall, mayor of North Saanich,

put forth the motion to refer the item stating the Marine Trail development was of “great regional interest.” What the CRD board wants is to have a vote on the rezoning application rather than just committee A made up of the five directors from Metchosin, Langford, Colwood, Sooke and the Juan de Fuca. Hicks said to the board that to go about this in this way was a blatant way for North Saanich to impose its will. “All you’re doing is voting against the governance of the Juan de Fuca and the process,” said Hicks. He said delaying this application process was paramount to procastination. “I would say the whole process is in dispute,” stated Hicks. Mayor Janet Evans said the whole board could vote, if they bought in, which would be quite a lengthy process. Director John Ranns

Full house at CRD Board meeting Pirjo Raits photo

questioned whether the whole board would have to buy in. What is meant by “buying in” is that the board would have to pay a share of the land use planning costs in the Juan de Fuca. Alternate director Lynn Hunter said, “the dancing minister is not willing to get involved. She is the one who is going to have to come clear.” The whole Juan de Fuca development issue itself has been the focus of protests and letter writing campaigns against any development at all in the proximity of the hiking trail. It began with the release of forest

lands from TFL 25 and has escalated to include development issues in the Juan de Fuca. Exposing the Juan de Fuca Trail to development may, in an ironic way, preserve the uniqueness and beauty of the trail. That’s the opinion of Juan de Fuca Electoral Area regional director Mike Hicks. He says denying the re-zoning would leave the trail and park exposed to the present zoning and inevitable development. He states, “present zoning woud allow a clear cut fom the highway to the park boundary and opportunity for gravel extraction. It would also allow

for each of the seven separate lots to have a dwelling built within 15 metres of the park boundary, outbuildings seven metres from the park boundary, and a collection of sawmills, boats, trailers, trucks, dogs and everything great and part of rural living.” The trail will continue to trespass on private land, as would the public and B.C. Parks. Hicks said, we have received hundreds of e-mails and comments. The vast majority state that they wish the beauty, uniqueness, and the natural state of the Juan de Fuca Trail preserved.

“There are only two ways to achieve that goal. Make an offer to purchase the land or re-zone the land. I have only one option available to me,” said Hicks in a statement. He said that one of the strongest opponents to any development in the Juan de Fuca has been the Dogwood Initiative. “The Dogwood Initiative army are at home eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches until school starts in the fall,” said Hicks. “The e-mails have stopped since school has been out. I imagine they are trying to delay this until the election in November (and a new land use committee), then the Dogwood can come out and chase me around.” He said he had no qualms with the people who are sincerely opposed, his qualms are with the change to the voting structure without the consent of the people in the Juan de Fuca.

‘Neighbours’ question JDF/Sooke memorandum of understanding Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

A Memorandum of Understanding between the Capital Regional District (through its Juan de Fuca Electoral Area planning department) and the District of Sooke met with resistance from CRD directors at the board meeting on June 15. The MOU was proposed as it would provide a framework and timelines for reaching agreements on issues raised in the agreement between the District of Sooke and the CRD, to set out policies, procedures and processes for the way in which the district and the

Juan de Fuca electoral area will interact from time to time. The idea was for the two parties to work in a spirit of cooperation. The MOU was challenged by the mayor of North Saanich, Alice Finall, John Ranns, mayor of Metchosin and Highland’s mayor Jane Mendum. “It’s a good neighbourly system,”said JDF area director Mike Hicks. “It is so we can have discussion, Sooke council wholeheartedly supports it.” Hicks was scratching his head as to why directors from “halfway across the South Island” would have any issues with such an

agreement. He said those directors who had a issues with the MOU showed the “extend of the ill-

ness of the CRD.” “I can totally empathize with the First nations, the Juan de Fuca is in the same

boat wanting self-government. There’s nothing more I can do,” said Hicks. The board voted to

Milne’s Landing High School graduation

JOHN VERNON

“Sooke’s Real Estate Professional” Sooke’s #1 Remax Real Estate Agent Since 1991*

June makes us think of graduation, and this year’s class of grads at Edward Milne numbers 114. An unimaginable figure back in the days when the first high school west of Victoria opened in 1946, graduating its first class in 1947! During the first years, the students were taught in converted army huts, left onsite from the days of Milne’s Landing Army Training Camp during World War II. Sixty-three years have passed since this historic photo was taken. The students pictured are in grades 11 and 12, with their teacher/principal, John B. Wilkinson. Shared by each generation of grads is excitement and wonder as they embark on their futures. For the students pictured, there have been 63 years of carrying out their roles in the world around them! While we are not up to date on each student, we can offer some snippets of information.

Back row, left: the late Nelson Cook, longtime Otter Point family who spent his working life in the forest industry, mostly up-island. Second, the late Bob Lajeunesse who followed his dad in the forest industry, was a longtime employee of CPS/ Western Forest Products in Jordan River. Third, Elaine Sheilds, daughter of the blacksmith, who went on to college in the U.S., marrying and raising a large family there. Next

is Bernice Emery, we think. The late Marilyn Jackman is next; she took teacher training and became the first teacher at Bear Creek School during the heyday of BC Forest Products. Next to Marilyn is her future husband, the late Pete Hansen, member of another wellknown family of fallers. Bill Emerson of Jordan River is seen next to J. B. Wilkinson. Seated left is the late Daphne Lavender who

became Mrs. Bud Hay and lived out her life in Saseenos. The late Norah Wadams, daughter of the Wadams farming family became Mrs. Cook and lived in Sidney. Next is Dorothy Brown of Jordan River, we think. Holding the slate is Jessie Carlow, a Charters family descendant who married an airman, David Anderson and lives in Cobble Hill. The late Phyllis MacMillan, whose parents ran a store, is next; she

became a nurse and married in the U.S. Ruth Banner, another wellknown Shirley family member, married John Poschner and lives in the Interior. Seated at far right is Doreen Gallia of Jordan River, and we’re not sure where her career took her. (We sincerely apologize if there have been any errors here.) Elida Peers, Historian Sooke Region Museum

At the regular District of Sooke council meeting held on Tuesday, June 14, council made the following decisions: Council agreed to fund Community Liaison Officer Reservist Constable Scott Rothermel to the tune of $4,000 for his work at School District 62. The program is jointly funding with the school

district and five municipalities. Rothermel works directly with students, teachers, administrators and parents across the school district. The program has met with a lot of success and many issues have been dealt with immediately without the need for regular police involvement.

Coun. Dave Bennett suggested this become a line item in the 2012 budget. Bylaws: Council adopted Bylaw No. 495, Latecomer Interest Rate Bylaw, 2011; Bylaw No. 496, Delegation Bylaw Amendment Bylaw (474-1) and Bylaw No. 497, Sooke Core Sewer Specified Area Cost

Recovery Amendment Bylaw, 2011 (150-6) was given first, second and third reading. The Ayre Manor Lodge will see a reduction in their sewer costs which will be based on usage rather than a dwelling unit rate. They will save approximately $2,700 per year. A Memorandum of Understanding with

School District 62 was approved. The MOU was to facilitate the sewer connection for Ecole Poirier Elementary and Journey Middle Schools to ensure that sewer fees paid are fair and consistent; and to foster ongoing cooperation between the two parties.

Boomer hats reach 5,000

June Wesley has just sent off another shipment of over 1,000 little knitted and crocheted Boomer Hats and six vests to be used by the children of Afghanistan. The last shipment went in February of this year so knitters have been very busy indeed. The mothers are very appreciative since it gets very cold on the desert for their little ones and they do not have access to warm things, says Wesley. The total to date is in the 5,000 range from the Sooke area since this project started in 2006. Thank you so very much to the knitters and those who donate yarn. Every little bit helps. Apparently these shipments are still getting through. There are crochet and knitting patterns available for these who wish to help out. Contact June at 250-6422032.

Take a walk among the lilies Pirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

As the sun begins to melt the snow and warm the high reaches the avalanche lilies carpet the semi-alpine meadows in such profusion that “spectacular” seems an appropriate description. Each year a group of wilderness enthusiasts take time to lead others on a guided walk into the hills to view the millions of avalanche lilies (Erythronium montanum) in all of their glory. The lilies along the San Juan Ridge are unique and are in one of only two places on Vancouver Island. Phoebe Dunbar is one of the organizers of the annual Lily Walk taking place on Sunday, June 26, Tuesday evening, June 28 or Sunday, July 10, 9 a.m. John Muir Elementary School. “We start at sea level and go up to 3,000 feet,” says Dunbar. “We walk through ancient forests, semi-alpine with views of the San Juan valley and the Pacific Ocean.” Visits will be made to a tea bog, the eco lily reserve established in the 1970’s and the interpretive tea hut on the famous Kludahk Trail. She emphasizes that the walk is just that, a “walk” and not a macho

hike or any kind of serious hike. “A lot of people want to slow down and be way more observant,” said Dunbar. “This fabulous wilderness corridor is backcountry at its best.” For those who might wish to participate in the walks, they should know to wear good walking or hiking boots and perhaps a walking stick or pole. There will still be two to five feet of snow but snowshoes will not be needed and the trails will be clear. Every level of walker is encouraged to participate as this is geared to all ages, all levels of walking ability. There are three or four options depending on each person’s ability. If you can only walk a short distance, that will be taken into account. There will be plenty of breaks for looking at wildflowers and walkers are asked to bring a lunch on the Sunday walk and a pic-

nic lunch on the Tuesday hike, which will be a shorter version of the Sunday walk. Along for the walk will be naturalists Adolf and Oluna Ceska, retired botanists and biologists. They will be seeking out the rare and elusive snow mushroom. Hans Roemer, one of B.C.’s best known botanists, will be joining the lily walk as one of theguides and also on the walk will be guide and woodsman Maywell Wickheim. Some members of T’ Sou-ke Nation will be along on this special day. For those wanting to meet the group at the starting point there is easy road and trail access from Jordan Main. A 4X4 is not necessary, but obviously a more rugged vehicle would go the distance. Carpooling can be arranged for a small $5 donation. There will be a requested donation of $20 for the all day walk

and a $15 fee for the half-day walk. Proceeds go towards the development and sustainability of a native garden plant (edibles and medicinal) at Sooke’s Sunriver Allotment Gardens at 2380 Phillips Road. The hike – 3 options – for “loop” walks, led by Kludahk trail stewards, distance varying from 1 to 5km. Lily walks are walks to be observant, learn some natural history. The hikes are leisurely with stops along the way. If one has a known disability or health issue which may impair ability to hike, we advise one not to sign up. We are in the backcountry where medical assistance can take hours to access. Kludahk trail maps are available for purchase on the day of the hike. For those wishing to take part, phone Phoebe Dunbar at 250642-4342 or email phoebetwin@shaw.ca or call Maywell Wickheim at 250-642-4420. Vehicles will be leaving at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, June 26 from the John Muir Elementary School parking lot, arriving back at 5 or 5:30 p.m. Those taking part in the Tuesday evening walk leave John Muir at 4 p.m. returning at 9:30 to 10 p.m. They cannot wait for latecomers.

Giving us a black eye

Mob mentality is frightening and unpredictable. We all saw the result of it during the unfortunate riots of June 15. Young men and women acted and reacted in a way they probably never thought they would and the result was a huge black eye for Vancouver and British Columbia. The scary thing is many of these idiots came downtown with the intention of causing trouble and turning things ugly. It had nothing at all to do with hockey it was only the excuse. Mob mentality was responsible for the death of Reena Virk and the rape of a young woman at a party They are the mainland. Taunting spoiled, self- on each other on is what they do and no “macho” guy absorbed... would dare not participate. It is what causes riots and death and destruction in all parts of the world and one would have thought, as Canadians, we are better than that. I guess we aren’t. Combine testosterone and alcohol and a “supposed” cause and you have a volatile situation no one would want to wade into. Hats off to those who showed up to clean up and let the world know that this is not who we are as British Columbians. The acts of a few tarnish our reputation and it is pretty sad that this is where we have come to. Those people who participated and looted and set fire to vehicles have likely never been oppressed, hungry, jailed of their political beliefs or had to live in a tin pot dictatorship. They are spoiled, self-absorbed and an embarrassment. They are so vain they had to take photos of themselves stealing, burning and acting like goons. Shame and guilt is likely not in their makeup, but a good criminal conviction and restitution would suffice.

Victoria and the West Coast climate built up over so many years. The last five years have been good, a good start on a connection with Black Press I’m pleased to be continuing.

I’ll keep up with what’s going on in the CRD and watch with interest what happens to Sooke’s transportation arrangements and the ongoing development controversies in the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area.

SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22, 2011

Profits flow out of town The decision we are facing regarding the EPCOR agreement is important to me because as an Organization Systems Consultant who evaluates alternative organizations within a broader community environment, the Sooke region is facing both an exceptional opportunity and a serious threat. The opportunity is that the Sooke region can be developed as an ideal self-sustaining region. The threat is that the world is teetering on the brink of at least another recession or at worst a catastrophic financial collapse. One key contribution to realizing this opportunity and mitigating this threat is to develop our local economy by maximizing the recycling of funds we spend within the community. With the EPCOR agreement, profits flow out of our community. Two local alternatives are to provide our wastewater management services through a public works department or through a community co-operative. For both of these alternatives, the funds generated remain in the community, however there are advantages and disadvantages to each of these alternatives. It is claimed that a public works alternative would be much more costly and is viewed by some people as a less efficient alternative than the private sector. I submit that these costs and inefficiencies can be significantly reduced through proper organization design and creative policy development. The least well-known alternative is creating a community-based cooperative. This alternative allows for the flexibility of the private sector along with putting the distribution of profits directly in the hands of the community through their elected board. However, this alternative requires some smart, experienced community members who are respected in the community to come forward, organize a core team and develop a sound business plan for the co-operative that demonstrates the advantages of this alternative compared to the

Both of these alternatives require the community to step up and take control of our local economy. This is critical to our success as a resilient, sustainable region. I believe our community has this capability. By saying ‘no’ to the 21-year agreement with EPCOR will take us one step closer to at least objectively evaluating these two local alternatives. Don Brown Sooke

Send strong message Healthy Choices, being sponsored under the Community Prevention Education Continuum, supporting EMCS Dry Grad by obtaining community leaders to commit to a Dry June without alcohol in Sooke, are all the more important this morning due to the despicable, disgusting behaviour of an out of control illegal mob in Vancouver last night June 15 that was fueled by alcohol over a hockey game. It sends the strongest message to graduating youth becoming adults that healthy choices are the most important aspect of their whole lives. The Vancouver riots send a strong message that there are too many people around who choose unhealthy choices that caused criminal activity spring boarded by alcohol. Ted Dever Sooke

More questions I would like to thank Mr. Parliament, CAO, for attempting to explain what is going on with the public boat launch. (Sooke News Mirror June 15, 2011) however his explanation only begs us to ask more questions. For example : How many actual 30’ – 40’ parking stalls will there be to accommodate the trailers? I would estimate at most there will be eight stalls -- hardly worth the $1.8 million expenditure. Consultants have been paid to cost out the project. Why did they not account for the $140,000 oversight? Why do we need a boat launch that will accommodate two or three boats launching at the same time? surely the cost of the project would be reduced considerably if a smaller facility is built. What is the actual total cost going to be to the taxpayers of Sooke, including the land cost? When is a building used by a commercial enterprise not considered a commercial building? What affect does this have on residents who want to construct a shop on their own property? What liability does Sooke have for the operation of the fuel pump on public property? What risk is there of oil spills? Three metres of land in front of the hotel is a land dedication. Is this

the same land referred to in the restrictive covenant agreement signed by Mr. Parliament on Dec. 3, 2009 and which states, “ the district will restrict public access to the covenant area and hereby authorizes Prestige on its behalf to install barricades or gates so that the public cannot access or use the covenant area.” I’m sure after the November election we will receive full and complete answers to these and many other questions that need to be asked.

Play by the rules Regulations and the need for building permits are in place for a reason. They are to be equal for all and just because other places do it as Mayor Evans says, it certainly does not make it right. C. Williams Sooke

Show some respect When we arrived in Sooke in 1972 we found

www.sookenewsmirror.com

a community that was proud of its friendly volunteer way of life. We were made welcome and found it easy to join in and be a part of. The first All Sooke Day in 1934 celebrated community growth and raised funds for lumber to build the new community hall. The logging show became world famous with large crowds attending. Clam chowder, baron of beef and games gave something for everyone to enjoy, adding to the festival atmosphere of the day. The logging show became known worldwide drawing large crowds. It was sponsored by the community association that worked tirelessly to make it happen. We didn’t always agree on how things should be done but worked out these various opinions without attacking individual personalities. Now, we have an elected mayor and council and it seems we have turned into critics attacking everything they do, even to the point of being quite nasty about it. We did elect them to run our community, which is growing. Hopefully growth will attract new businesses, giving employment to residents and students needing part time jobs. We have a right to attend council meetings and voice our opinions, ask questions and keep informed on any issues we are concerned about. Let’s take a few steps back and show respect and caring for those who govern Sooke. We can make newcomers feel this is really home and a community they want to become an active part of. “Welcome to Sooke” can be an ongoing reality as it was for us, Martha Moore Sooke

With still a few days to go before the deadline to submit signed Elector Response Forms, the Committee for Fair Sewer Services for Sooke has received signed forms from more than the 10 per cent of eligible voters needed to send a message to the district to urge them to consider other options and get the best deal for Sooke. The District of Sooke is proposing to enter into a 21-year contract

with the City of Edmonton owned EPCOR. The committee was formed after a number of citizens raised issues about the proposed agreement. “The voters of Sooke have soundly rejected the District of Sooke’s attempt to push through a 21-year multi-million dollar deal with EPCOR to operate our sewer system. I hope council listens and does not see it as a win or a loss, but rather an opportunity to really listen to the voters,” said Wendal Milne, chair of the committee. “They want to see an open, tendered process in conjunction with a true examination of an internal opera-

tion, in order to determine which option is best for Sooke. While out talking to people on this matter, I was surprised by the interest and the depth of knowledge. Hats off to the citizens of Sooke for speaking out on a matter that is important to all of us,” Milne added. Milne, along with several volunteers, has been visiting neighbourhoods over the past three weeks to see how people felt about this issue. “We had tremendous response from the people of Sooke,” said Rick Kasper, former Sooke councillor and former MLA for Malahat-Juan de Fuca. “A vast majority of the people I talked

to were aware of the agreement. Going door to door was a great opportunity to make a personal connection, and many people thanked us for delivering the forms – they were grateful to have had this opportunity to voice their thoughts.” “One of our objectives in taking on this issue was to keep the public informed and get direct feedback from taxpayers on this important issue,” said Herb Haldane, Sooke councillor. “It is encouraging to hear that Sooke residents want council to do the right thing.” The committee is submitting 1,500+ signed forms to the district on Tuesday, June 21.

Water NoticeSooke toWatch Sooke Electors

Many Sooke residents are very concerned with the District of Sooke's plans to sign away exclusive 21-year rights to a private corporation (EPCOR) to run our wastewater system for their profit.

7x7

Almost all Canadian municipalities (including B.C. towns the size of Sooke such as Parksville, Dawson Creek, Prince Rupert, Lake Country and Summerland) operate quality water and wastewater treatment systems publicly with their own highly-trained water and wastewater staff. This is because, historically, public operation of such vital services has been found to be most cost effective, transparent and accountable to the public since there are no corporate privacy and profit interests involved. In British Columbia, the Capital Regional District and the Resort Municipality of Whistler both recently decided to operate their wastewater systems publicly. Based on extensive reviews of the evidence, both places determined that public operation would be less expensive, less risky and more accountable. The District of Sooke has not provided residents with an objective evaluation or comparison of the option of running our wastewater system publicly. Surely, we're owed such a comparison before diving head-first into such a significant and long-term contract with EPCOR.

Now is your chance to have your say!

According to the Community Charter, the District of Sooke cannot sign the wastewater system contract without your approval. They have chosen a “silence is consent” process to measure public approval, called the Alternative Approval Process. In other words, if you do nothing, the District of Sooke assumes you agree with their plans to privatize our wastewater services for the next 21 years. A 10% response means that the agreement will have to go to a referendum and the residents of Sooke will get to decide if this long-term contract to privatize our wastewater services should be signed.

Speak up! Spread the word!

Contact sookewaterwatch@live.ca if you would like a copy of the response form or if you would like to help collect signed forms. You can also pick up forms at the District of Sooke office: 2205 Otter Point Road, Sooke, B.C.

Broadband help for French Beach and Jordan River Rural B.C. businesses and families get broadband boost

Premier Christy Clark announced today the province is providing $2.34 million to expand Internet service to families in over 60 locales in rural B.C. In the Juan de Fuca region, French Beach and Jordan River each received $50,000 for highspeed internet connectivity through South Island Cable Ltd. “Bringing Internet access to our most rural areas is crucial for the future of our young people and their education, for the health of families and for the competitiveness of our businesses,” said Premier Clark. “Not only does it help give British Columbians bet-

ter access to information and opportunity, but it also brings that information closer and faster to our youngest learners.” Premier Christy Clark promised to expand broadband Internet into B.C.’s rural communities and make B.C. one of the most connected jurisdictions in the world. Since 2008, the province has provided $6.83 million through Network BC’s Connecting Citizen’s Grant Program and funded nearly 150 connectivity projects to

establish the infrastructure needed to bring high-speed Internet services to over 210 new locales in B.C. Today, 93 per cent of British Columbians have access to high-speed Internet. With these grants, more families, businesses and individuals will soon have access to high-speed Internet services for the first time. The provincial government is committed to creating new economic opportunities for families by expanding broadband into their

communities. Network BC works collaboratively with local community groups, all levels of government and the private sector, including small Internet service providers, to encour-

Sooke Harbour Players celebrate 30 years GALA planned Leah Kelley Special to the Sooke News Mirror

O

ur local theatre group, Sooke Harbour Players is coming up to its 30th anniversary, and to celebrate,they are holding an Annual General Meeting Gala at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort and Convention centre in Sooke. Tickets are $20 and are available at Shoppers Drug Mart. To find out more about the Sooke Harbour Players Society and this gala, I spoke with Sooke Harbour Players’ president, Bobbie-Jo Peterson, and asked her a few questions. 1) What is the main reason you enjoy being a part of Sooke Harbour Players? “I love the experience of being both on and off the stage. I can honestly say I really have come to appreciate the amount of work it takes to put on a stage production. Having an activity or group that my son and I can be a part of side-by-side is extremely important to me, not only have we both shared the stage but something a little more special to me is that together we have made some wonderful long lasting friendships. Volunteering for Sooke Harbour Players Society really makes me feel like I am contributing to our community and making a difference

Pirjo Raits photo

Bobbie-Jo Peterson in peoples lives...(even if it is a very small difference).” 2) What do you hope to see for the future of SHP? “My hope for the future is that Sooke Harbour Players continues to grow in membership, education, audience, volunteers and public support in our community. I also believe it would be a true asset to Sooke Harbour Players to see more youth involved, but not just on the stage. We have had several youth over the past few years show us that they can handle the commitment, stresses and rewards of being involved in both large musicals and spring/summer dinner theatres. I am currently working on putting a youth program together. Stay tuned for more info.” 3) Why do you think people would enjoy being a part of the society? “Being a part of Sooke Harbour Players really is a lot of fun. It will be an enjoyable commitment for you whether it is to make new friends, build sets, sew costumes, learn new and

amazing things, sing and dance or just help out where you can.” 4) Why did you decide to hold a gala AGM this year? “This year we are celebrating our 30 year anniversary! Instead of having the same old ‘snooze fest’ at our AGM, we decided to do something a little different. This year we are having a gala to celebrate 30 years of history, talent and sustainability... We are going to take you back in time with a few video clips of previous shows and and will be displaying some `oldies but goodies’ photos, posters, programs and we may even have a few short speeches from the original founders. We are very excited to hold our gala at the brand new Prestige Hotel in Sooke. The tickets are only $20 and include an incredible number of things: A year long membership, an appetizer meal at the new Prestige hotel, an informational evening about the society, access to a bar as well as a silent auction, and participation in the election of new board members. Overall it is a fun night to socialize, become involved with the society, and support theatre in your community!” 5) How reliant is the society on community support? “First I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the community of Sooke and to all our loyal patrons and members for your support. We are extremely reliant on community sup-

port. Without all of you purchasing tickets we would not be in business. Yes, we do receive grants from various agencies including the District of Sooke, but tickets sales and community sponsors keep us going. Another thank you I want to send out is to Christine MacNeil... she has been an active part of Sooke Harbour Players since we put on Jesus Christ Superstar. I truly believe she should receive the SUPERSTAR award from Sooke Harbour Players. From being an actor, board member, director, producer and mentor, to a really wonderful friend, you are an asset. Thanks for all your hard work, talent, dedication, organization and commitment. You and the family will be missed very much. Sooke Harbour Players is working extremely hard to bring even bigger and better performances. Some-

thing else we are offering is the opportunity for members of the community to bring their original scripts (we have received a few already), or other show ideas and proposals to the board. We want your ideas... to do that you need to put together a proposal for a show you want to put on... if you need more info on what to do or how to do it please send an email shpinfo@ shaw.ca or call 250-8916105 for more info.” Well, there you have it. Sooke Harbour Players needs your support. Whether you wish to become involved in the society, on or off stage, or you are simply looking for an enjoyable evening at our wonderful new hotel in Sooke, be sure to pick up your tickets for the gala on Friday, June 24 from 7-9 p.m.

Help Your Local Heroes AND WIN BIG Every day throughout British Columbia, thousands of heroes risk their lives to help others. Fire fighter Terry Hughes is one of those heroes – whose job it is to keep others safe, even if it means risking his own safety. He is also a Regional Director of the B.C. Professional Fire Fighters' Burn Fund, where he often meets heroes of another kind – burn survivors. With the loyal support of more than 3,800 fire fighters across the province who volunteer their time – not to mention generous members of the public who donate – the Burn Fund offers a variety of programs to support survivors of all ages. "With our annual summer Burn Camp for kids, we give children survivors a chance to be among their peers and really just enjoy the experience of camp," Hughes said, noting the Burn Fund's reach extends throughout B.C. and the Yukon. "Through the various programs run by the Burn Fund, we give burn survivors the ability to gain confidence and move forward through life." As one of the largest fundraisers for the Burn Fund (www.burnfund.org), Hughes said the money raised by the Hometown Heroes Lottery provides a large and important boost to the fund's programs. "We depend very much upon the Hometown Heroes Lottery," he said. "The funds help us to continue the good work that the Burn Fund does throughout the year, and we couldn't continue without

the generous support of the public." By purchasing a ticket for the Hometown Heroes Lottery, you have a chance to be a hero, too.

Jurors selected for SFA Show This year three distinguished jurors will judge over 1,300 submissions to the 2011 Sooke Fine Arts Show and Sale. Adjudication takes place June 27 and 28. “It’s an arduous process, with each juror spending a good portion of a full day judging the art individually and all three judges make final decisions on the second day. This year, the information is being compiled digitally, a process that complements the show’s initiative to be greener and streamline its processes,” said Sally Manning, chair of the 2011 Show. The three jurors are Carole Sabiston, Richard White, and Nixie Barton. All three jurors fulfill the show’s extensive criteria for show judging. As respected arts professionals, they are, between them, familiar with a large range of working art mediums and styles, as well as understanding the needs of gallery showings and exhibition requirements. Carole Sabiston has worked for over 40 years in textile, paint and mixed media, as well

Sooke Fine Arts Show 2010 as theatre sets and costumes. Her large-scale architectural pieces are displayed locally in the Victoria Public Library, Royal Bank and McPherson Theatre. Her works have been commissioned and exhibited across Canada, the UK, the United States and Japan. Some of her many honours include the Saidye Bronfman Award in 1987, the Order of British Columbia, the Queen’s Jubilee Medal, election to the Royal Canadian Academy in 1992 and an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from the University of Victoria in 1995. Richard White has been involved with the arts in Western Can-

File photo

ada for 30-plus years as a collector, artist, curator, public art gallery executive director, freelance writer and editor. He was the Curator and Executive Director of the Muttart Public Art Gallery from 1985 to 1995, at which time it was so successful it had outgrown its space. White is currently Reviews Editor with Galleries West magazine and Managing Director of Riddell Kurczaba Architecture’s 3D visualization studio in Calgary. Nixie Barton grew up on Canada’s West Coast and gained her formal art training at UVic and Nanaimo’s Malaspina College. Her paintings

often reflect the imagery, colours and strong patterns she finds in her extensive home garden on Vancouver Island. Barton describes her own work as having a “wonky sense of composition.” Artists who are accepted will have the honour of seeing their work hung in the 25th Sooke Fine Arts Show, a landmark year for the largest juried show on Vancouver Island. This year $11,000 in prizes will be awarded. The jurors alone decide on prize awards, with the only exceptions being the Children’s Choice and People’s Choice awards, which are voted on by the public attending the show. The jury will select approximately 375 works of art to appear in this year’s show. The 2011 Sooke Fine Arts Show opens to the public at the SEAPARC Leisure Complex on Saturday, July 23 and runs for 10 days through Monday, August 1.

I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18 Have you ever had any tribulation?

QUICK, SAFE & MOST OF ALL FRIENDLY!

That may seem like a silly question. After all, what sane human being can say he or she hasn't had to carry some kind of life's burden?

250-642-7900

This really takes me to a little bit of word explanation: tribulation. In ancient Rome, grain was separated from husk by riding over the sheaves in a crude cart. Instead of wheels, the cart had rollers to which sharp stones and rough bits of iron had been attached. Those rough rollers tore the valuable grain from the worthless chaff. This cart was called a "tribulum." That's where we get the word "tribulation." It's quite possible that today you feel as if God were running over you with rough, iron-and-stone-studded rollers. If so, you know tribulation. Of course, we also need to remember that tribulation can have a purpose. It always has a high purpose when it is perceived from God's perspective and point-of-view. According to God's plan, tribulation can come because He wishes to separate the valuable you from the worthless stuff of this world. Remember, tribulation isn't designed just to hurt; it is allowed by a caring God to make you more special and of greater worth than you would have been if He had left you alone. Oh, one other thing about tribulation, the Heavenly Father sent His Son to endure a life of tribulation -- our tribulation -- so we might have an eternity without that burden. (From www.lhm.org)

Massive year ahead for the mighty Quinn Jim Sinclair Sooke News Mirror

The pride was apparent as soon as coach Trevor Bligh walked into the Sooke News Mirror office on June 18. Bligh had news he could not wait to share, news relating to a young man he has coached and watched develop into a stellar athlete. To say Quinn Yates comes by his sporting talent honestly is an understatement, so would it be to say the Yates family is successful at athletics. The children of Campbell and Gloria Yates are all noted multi-sport achievers. In Quinn’s case he has genetics and loving parental guidance on his side, plus the inspiration of a pair of siblings (brother Cody-20 and sister Kali-19) to draw motivation from. The major news brought in that day by Bligh is the same as what’s got Quinn riddled with excitement of late – in August he’s off to Denmark to spend a year at a highly regarded sports/ arts institute, the same one from which touring teams have visited Sooke over the past several years. There was, incidently, a profile on that very basketball academy in the May 25 issue of this paper. This is not a sideline, basketball is serious buisness at Effersko-

iting Danish players, having supplied a billet home for as many as five players at a time over the past several yearS when they’ve come to Sooke. During this year’s late May visit Quinn took every opportu-

nity to connect with the coach, letting there be no doubt about his interest in attending the school. It worked. He admits it’s fairly short notice for heading off to Northern Europe for a year, but he’s sold on the deal. “I thought it was a possibility, like, a very slight chance,” said Quinn by phone on June 18. “It ended up happening and I was pretty ecstatic. It’s a school focussing on sports and theatre.” Quinn will alternate – basketball at one location, and academics at an international academy where English is the mother tongue. Once the invitation was offered it was up to Quinn to decide. Because he’s a good boy he first consulted with his parents (Campbell and Gloria), who, without reservation encouraged him to accept. This is the stuff fantastic future memories are made of, not to mention solid educational preparation for whatever the future holds. “I’ll go as far as I can in sports,” he said, going on to tout the high value of the academic curriculum he’s headed for as well. Locally, Quinn has been working with a south Island regional U15 select squad as well as a junior (UVIC) Vikes group. It’s clear that this kid has a work ethic to

We feel totally confident that he’s going to have a great time there.” Mrs. Yates said all the kids in the family had become involved in sports from about the age of five and it became a big part of each of their lives. Back to Coach Bligh’s assessment: “Quinn is the third

Yates kid I’ve coached. At first glance you are impressed by the sheer size of Quinn, but more impressive is his hunger to learn basketball. In 16 years of coaching at EMCS I have never had a player develop as quickly as Quinn has. From where he started in September to where he is now is amazing and a credit to his work ethic. “While Quinn is expanding his all-round game at EVN in Denmark, myself and the rest of the team will be working towards a goal

shared by Quinn, his Sooke teammates and myself – a first trip to the provincials in 20122013 for EMCS.” As is so often pointed out, sports can so often have a very positive influence on a young person. Gloria also made sure to include the details of Quinn’s achievements over the past year, which included Rookie of the Year honours in football, and the junior basketball award, plus the MVP nod from his community soccer team.

Playoff grind – a tough two months “I’m tired” said the sports radio host the day after game seven of the Stanley Cup Final and its sickening sidebar riot. David Pratt’s comment summed things up for this pouting puck-o-phile and many thousands of others, I’m sure. It’s not as though we hardcore Canuck supporters and the legions of fresh recruits were not each delighted to fill a spot on the bandwagon, but did it ever feel good when the team-train pulled into the station and we were allowed to disembark and get reacquainted with real life. This year, number 40, marked the squad’s third trip to the final. On a personal level, another milestone was recorded – this is the year I cracked. Supporting the

JIMSINCLAIR

SPORTSLICE Canucks even before their 1970 NHL induction, I had proudly, and at times even smugly professed my “ultimate fan” status. I would never miss a game on TV or radio if it was in my power to tune it in. There were some appointments along the way that just couldn’t be slithered out of, but I would always be sure to find results and digest as many highlights as were available if I couldn’t watch or listen. I have since con-

ceded top-fan status to the smart phone packing, app-downloading crowd who enjoy 24/7 updates from Canuck Nation. This year I hit the wall and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Because with my revelation came a gigantic relief. I pulled the plug on the emotional paint mixer when the score got to 4-0 in game six in Boston. I had never had a single hint of digestive woes but this time my tract was tied in knots.

I thought, “I’m not on the Canucks payroll... I don’t actually have to go on with this masochism.” I should have gone for a bike ride but I turned the channel. I felt better just getting away from Hughson’s play by play and Simpson’s description of Boston’s overwhelming superiority. These guys are two of the very best in the business but after two months I just couldn’t take any more. After some news I turned to the King of Queens. “This is great,” I mumbled to myself, “it’s supposed to be stupid.” I couldn’t, however, make a clean break, and revisited CBC for the end of the game but did manage to steer clear of the post-mortem. I was staring at the 32-inch Samsung for game seven, taking

heed of a creed from some famous person who had stated something along the lines of “I’d rather regret something I’d done instead of something I didn’t do.” So I watched. When the closing horn blew that relief I’d discovered in game six returned. I was, as Tiger Williams once said, “Done like dinner.” You just can’t give a Stanley Cup finalist enough credit. Imagine the mental and emotional stress they have to endure along with the incredible physical abuse. I salute them, and believe if the Canucks can add the right amount of grit to the mix they may yet win that cup. But when it comes to making the emotional investment...

Atom and peewee Seahawks finish off proud The Handcraft Woodworks Sooke atom Seahawks faced a tough group of defending champions in Gold Cup final action Sunday at the big time venue of Royal Athletic Park. This was only the third time in Sooke community football history a team has competed at this level. The rugged, sizable and experienced Saanich Wolverines earned a hard fought 20-8 victory. The Seahawks turned in a full effort in every facet of the game... something that has become their trademark over the course of a most impressive 7-3 regular season as well as a gripping 6-0 triumph over Westshore in playoff action on the previous weekend. According to the coaching staff, and given the fact the squad was coming off a winless campaign last season, the team surpassed all expectations. “Sooke pride stood tall,” stated coach Darryl Pollock Seahawk Dreydon Lindquist earned defensive player of the game honours, while an outstanding effort by Jordan Schutt put Sooke’s major on the board.

A good recent tourney has earned the Bantam C fastball girls a spot in Provincials - Chilliwack, July 8-10. In their first game vs Cordova Bay #3, Sooke won 12-8. for Sooke. In the second game they edged Cordova Bay 2-1. Sunday they faced Duncan # 1. After the fourth it was 5-3 for Duncan but Sooke came back to win 10-7, and gain a berth in the on to the Gold/Silver game against Peninsula # 1. Peninsula had mercied everyone to that point. Sooke fought hard, got some awesome hits, which Peninsula managed to field on the way to a 16-3 win. The Sooke girls were proud to have made it that far and happy to be receiving the silver medal. As they were about to get their medals, the South Vancouver Island Fastball representative announced that they were sending two teams to the provincials from district one, and that Sooke would be going as well. Amid the cheers, hoopla and shocked tears, the girls pulled it together to receive their medals graciously.
