LOOKING BACK A trip back through the Sooke News Mirror time machine... Nov. 24, 2010 — A green investment Last year, the field along Phillips road contained only a sign that asked “Interested in getting a plot?” Today, it has an irrigation system, fences, a shed and outhouse, a gazebo and even a fire pit thanks to the Sooke Region Food CHI Society. The society came about in 2008 as the result of a group of citizens who had been sharing pot luck suppers and spoke of local foods and ideas since 2007. With money from the Vancouver Island Health Authority, a part-time coordinator was hired to help develop and promote food security strategies and programs. A legion of volunteers also came on board to make sure all of the good ideas took hold. Nov. 22, 2006 — Warning bells result from survey Over a hundred students from elementary to high school level in Sooke took part in a psychology survey in September that showed some surprising results. Administered by Wayne Hammond, a Calgary-based clinical psychologist who has conducted similar surveys with over 80,000 students in across Canada, it was his first foray into B.C. The study dealt with things from how much TV they watch to how often they get drink alcohol. Results showed a relative acceptance of binge drinking among Sooke Youth. Hammond said it appeared the phenomenon was part of a wider culture, an overriding acceptance of alcohol use. Nov. 24, 1999 — Local school bus stops dangerous Local emergency response personnel fear school busses which stop on Sooke Road to unload children are a disaster waiting to happen. The busses have long been frustrating to motorists on the congested road who have

But while a few minutes delay for motorists is an inconvenience, the same wait for the fire and ambulance servicr could be a tragedy. “The ambulance can’t get by,” said ambulance driver Bob Hudson. “They’re tying up the traffic when they have a parking area at Sooke Elementary,” he said of a bus that stops in front of the school.

tation study suggested to serve the needs of an expanding community. The report was passed on to the Sooke Advisory Planning Commission at its meeting last week for comment. The report defined the Western Communities as View Royal, Colwood, Metchosin, Langford and Sooke. It predicted that in the next 20 years the population of the Western Communities would increase by 24 per cent, to 61,000, with a further increase to 71,790 by 2010 — a 46 per cent total increase over 1990.

Function is one thing. Performance another.

Nov. 27, 1996 — EMCS set to open This Thursday, the public is invited to the opening ceremonies of the new high school at 1 p.m. to celebrate the work of students, staff, administrators, the public and the government that made the $19.6 million project possible. Speeches during the ceremony will be related to the theme of coming together with speakers sharing stories. The event will feature the T’Sou-ke Nation Elders presenting the new school with a special hand-carved canoe and cedar totem pole, the work of Fred Peter and student carvers who spent a month ad a half this summer creating the design.

✪ SEAPARC STAR of the WEEK

ADRIANNA ARDEN

This week’s SEAPARC Star is 10 year old Adrianna Arden. She is a grade 5 student at Saseenos Elementary whose favourite subjects are Math, Art and PE. Adrianna is an excellent swimmer; she has taken lots of swimming lessons and is currently a member of the SEAPARC Sharks Swim Club. She tells us that she loves the swim club and says that her coach Jenn is just great. Adrianna plays on the school basketball team and says that she would like to sign up for Hip Hop Dance or Gymnastics someday. She loves scrapbooking and likes to spend time drawing and colouring with her Dad (adding that her Dad is an amazing artist). She loves doing make up and singing and says that she is entering the school talent show this year. She took our Home Alone Safety Program earlier this year and is now attending our “Girls Just Wanna' Have Fun” Group. She really likes to go camping and visiting relatives. She has been to many concerts and says that they are lots of fun. Adrianna is very good at singing, Math, swimming, bike riding, Art and skating. She’s proud that she has been nominated Student of the Month 3 times. She has a few animals at home including a new puppy named GSXR. We are told that she has a way with animals and loves spending time with them. Adrianna says that when she grows up she will most likely be a veterinarian or a singer. She is described as being a strong and independent girl and a good friend. It was our pleasure to feature you this week Adrianna; thank you for being our SEAPARC Star of the Week!

ith the possibility of a locked out NBA season, basketball fans can rest assured the boys at EMCS are definitely going to be on the court. The team was practicing at Journey Middle School on Friday because their home hardwood at the high school was temporarily turned into an election polling station. “There’s going to be 4,000 people walking around on my floors,” said head coach Trevor Bligh, who lamented the scuffed floors. Nevertheless, his players were working hard in preparation for what Bligh expects to be a stellar year. “Our target this year is to be top three in our division,” he said. “We have high hopes to make the Island playoffs.” Last year, the Wolverines finished fifth out of six teams and were knocked out of the south Island regional championships. Traditionally, they have struggled against top seeds Lambrick Park and St. Michael’s and this year will be a tight race between Parkland and Esquimalt for the third spot. The core group this season is largely the same as last year with five players from Grade 11 and two from Grade 10. They revolve around the three seniors Ryan Albert, Jason Demoe and biathlete Alex Wright who is also the quarterback for EMCS’ football team. “We have a stronger offence this year,” said Albert, the Wolverine’s point guard. Like the other two seniors, he is in his seventh year playing hoops. The first home game is an exhibition matchup against Glenlyon Norfolk on Dec. 1 at 7 p.m., said Bligh. He’s coached basketball for 16 years and before that, he was a player for four years. “It’s my 20 year anniversary,” said a laughing Bligh. The season lasts into the last weekend of February, and the provincials take place in March.

Shuffle over to Legion for table-top fun

The Royal Canadian Legion Br. #54 Phone: 250-642-5913 BONA FIDE GUESTS ALWAYS WELCOME

Why not make it your Legion

T

he shuffleboard season at the Sooke Legion is in full swing, and there’s no better time to join, said league president Jim Parsons. The league, created 25 years ago, started in the beginning of September and runs right through to March. “We can always use new members because some people go away to Hawaii and we’ve got to replace them, so we have a list of spares,” he said. Playing on Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m., this has been one of the busiest years with seven teams signing up. There are three table-top shuffleboards and six of the teams take turns playing with two a side for a total of three matches. Every seventh week, one of the teams takes a bye. The object of the game is to be the first team to reach 21 points. Players slide “rocks,” or coloured weights made out of metal, down the 16-foot waxed wooden surface of the board. There are three horizontal lines at the end of the board that score from one point at the line closest to the player, to three points closest to the end of the board. Only the team with the rock closest to the end of the board scores points. Each game typically lasts about an hour. The league supplies everything, and the only thing members — who don’t have to belong to the Legion to join — have to bring is $3 per play that pays for the speciality wax that needs to be applied to the boards to help the rocks slide, similar to what they do to the lanes at bowling alleys. Parsons has been playing for five years, and signed on as vice president two years ago. “They voted me in,” he said with a chuckle. Parsons ran Sooke’s Meals on Wheels program for nine years and said he met a lot of players during that time. Besides playing amongst themselves, the league periodically hosts other leagues to come and participate in tournaments and vice versa. Last week, Duncan brought several teams to the Sooke Legion, and Esquimalt is coming on Dec. 1. In March, Sooke is travelling to Duncan. “Duncan has their own bus for seniors, we don’t have a bus. We rent Esquimalt’s.” He said Sooke’s rival is Langford who they “have a hard time with.” “We only have 36 people, Langford has three or four leagues and they pick their best players out of the three leagues. We’re up against a rock and a hard wall type of thing.” Most of the members are between 50 to 80 years old, but the league open to all adults. To join, pay a visit to the Legion on game night.

TRADITIONAL SERIOUSLY - CHRISTMAS Bethlehem Walk celebrates its 10th Anniversary in Sooke. We have recreated the town of Bethlehem inside our auditorium in an effort to bring the ancient story into the reality of the 21st century. Take thirty minutes to walk through the town, visit the shops, listen to the chatter and be surprised by the baby. Anyone who takes seriously the Christmas stories of scripture knows that the ¿rst Christmas had more than angels, shepherds, wise men, and a mother nursing her baby. There was also the anguish of childbirth. There were the pungent, impolite odors of an animal pen. There was pursuit by a demented ruler named Herod. There was a breathless escape to Egypt. Author Mike Cope says it well: The entrance of God’s Son into the world meant peace; –but it didn’t assure that people would get along It meant great joy; –but it didn’t mean we’d always be happy And it meant unconditional love; –though it never implied that everyone would act lovingly.

Hockey wrap up Atom dev — After a disappointing 4-3 loss to Nanaimo on Saturday, the Atom Development team came out with focus and strength in Sunday’s game against Victoria Raquet Club. An unassisted goal by Sooke’s Matthew Clark set the tone for the first period and the team was off to a great start. A later goal by Chris Piatkowski, assisted by Connor Mowat, and yet another by Clark, gave Sooke a 3-0 lead going into the second period. The score remained the same for most of the second period, until another unassisted goal by Clark brought Sooke’s lead to 4-0. Gaining some momentum, VRC scored with minutes remaining in the period, the score now 4-1 going into the third. Two quick goals by Kaleb McHugh and Matthew Clark within the first minute of play changed the score to 6-1, and a final goal by

Taye Julien, assisted by Kyle Brown brought the final score to 7-1 for Sooke. The team is currently standing at two wins and two losses in the regular season, with their next league game set for Saturday Nov. 26 against Campbell River. C1 — In the first game of their regular season, the Sooke Thunderbirds atom 1 dominated the Peninsula Panthers Atom C4 team with an 11-1 win on Sunday morning at Panorama Centre. Pelting the Panther’s goalie with 50 shots, the entire Sooke team chipped in with some excellent play-making and solid passing. Sooke’s defense was nearly impenetrable allowing only five shots from the Panthers. Bradon Blythe and Dahlan Murphy both had a hat trick and Finley Arthurs added a pair. John Richardson and Alex Perman each had

a goal and Jai Govender scored his first with a wrist shot. Bantam C — The bantam boys had a strong start to their season by winning both their weekend games. Saturday saw them playing at Peninsula in a game that battled back and forth before captain Dryden Alexander scored four goals, as well as goals by Marco Carello, Bradley Angus and Ayden Ostropolski gave them the victory. Assists included a nice play from Sheldon Kelley at the point. They also played strongly Sunday at home against Juan de Fuca C3, with some exceptional passing and play making. Fun to watch and everyone was happy to see Jamie Crevier score his first with a nice play in front of the net. A hat trick by Chadwick Mason, help from Bradley A., Dominic Lacroix and Ayden O. sealed the deal and wrapped up a good league start.

All persons who hold a non-practising or non-practising [retired] certiďŹ cate must upgrade to a practising certiďŹ cate by January 6, 2012 in order to retain a teaching certiďŹ cate. Non-practising certiďŹ cate holders who have not paid the $120 practising fee or $60 top-up fee to the College by January 6, 2012 will lose their certiďŹ cates under legislation upon the College’s transition to the new Teacher Regulation Branch in early January. After January 6, former BC College of Teachers members who held these certiďŹ cates would be required to reapply for new certiďŹ cates under the requirements in place at the time of application.
