Firearm amnesty on for limited time


Westerly News

Watch VING division manager Hugh Nicholson’s photo come to life with

A province wide amnesty program is in effect from June 1-30 that permits immunity from prosecution to anyone who voluntarily surrenders a firearm, prohibited weapon, restricted or prohibited ammunition, or prohibited device. B.C.’s ministry of justice approved the initiative in an effort to identify and remove unauthorized and unwanted firearms from communities. Anyone wanting to take advantage of the limited-time amnesty is encouraged to contact their local RCMP detachment to have weapons or ammunition picked up. Participants must not deliver firearms to RCMP detachments because the amnesty does not include transporting firearms in vehicles. Ucluelet’s RCMP detachment can be reached at 250726-7773 and Tofino’s can be reached at 250-725-3242.

Long-awaited Scout program returns to Ucluelet ANDREW BAILEY Westerly News Local kids joined their parents at a bonfire held at Ucluelet’s Big Beach on Saturday to get pumped about the return of Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts to the community. Jennifer Rhodes says the program has been absent from Ucluelet for about 20 years and her kids’

desire to participate motivated her work to bring it back. “I’ve been trying to get it started for three years and it’s finally gotten off the ground,” she says, “it was a lot of hard work but I’m excited to get it rolling.” The program will kick off this September and is open to boys and girls ages 5-13. At the Big Beach celebration,

Rhodes introduced the volunteerleaders who completed training in Courtenay this past April in preparation for the program’s launch. “Cubs is all about doing your best,” said Cubs leader Jill McQuaid, “We get to earn badges throughout the year which is really exciting because the kids can set a goal and reach it.” Jamie Carson will lead the Bea-

vers with the assistance of Ryan McQuaid. “Beavers are going to have fun, they’re going to work hard, and they’re going to help family and friends,” Carson said, “We are going to learn to work together as a group...but at the same time we’re going to learn how to become individuals and we’re going to do this through songs,

crafts, games, and lots of outdoor adventures.” Volunteer leaders are needed, particularly to lead older youth at the Scout level and anyone interested in helping out is encouraged to contact Rhodes at 250-7267746. Anyone with interested kids can also contact Rhodes for registration information. —

Layar marks a new era in newspaper production Westerly News Brett Thomas of Big Bear Charters accepts a cheque on behalf of derby prize winner Colin Shore from Ucluelet Salmon Ladder Derby coordinator Lisa Brisco.

First $500 derby prize awarded AMY HANCOCK For The Westerly

Online updates:

The Ucluelet Salmon Enhancement Society presented this year’s first monthly prize for the Ucluelet Salmon Ladder Derby this week. The $500 cheque was awarded to Colin Shore for catching the biggest fish in the derby in May. Shore was visiting Ucluelet from Black Diamond, Alta., fishing with Big Bear Salmon Charters. He could not make it back for the presentation and Brett Thomas, Chair of the USLD and representative for Big Bear Salmon Charters, accepted it on his behalf. Shore caught a 27lbs-08oz Chinook salmon. The second place prize of $100 went to Brad Sarauer who caught a 27lbs-07oz salmon. Third place went to Robert Higgins whose fish weighed 24lbs-09oz. Higgins donated his $50 prize back to the USES. “It’s been a good start to the 4th annual derby,” said Lisa Brisco, coordinator of the USLD. “We are excited to see the fish that will be brought to the docks in June.” The 4th Annual Ucluelet Salmon Ladder Derby is a season-long event that rewards monthly cash and prizes to top fish. All proceeds benefit local salmon enhancement projects. Register in the derby at:

We’re changing to better serve the needs of readers Journalism — newspapers, radio, TV and online — is about telling stories, but not simply to entertain (though you hope to keep the customer’s attention). Rather, journalism is stories presented with the specific purpose of giving people the data they need to understand their immediate community and the greater world. News is not without its challenges. Challenge No. 1 is getting information and ensuring that the information you pass on is correct and balanced. And then you have to also make sure that it is

relevant to your readers’ lives, has meaning in their world and helps them to understand and engage more profoundly with others. The world is changing all around us and, for the most part, people, businesses and organizations have little choice but to change along with it or be left in the dust. Newspapers and other media are no different. We too must find ways to change and adapt what we do and the ways that we do it with the needs of the public that we serve. Sometimes this change has to do

with new technologies. Perhaps the earliest news reports were cave drawings in which reports of the activities of hunters were recorded. Over the centuries, town criers, sheets tacked up on walls and printed newspapers which reported things that had happened weeks before, have all been forms of journalism using the best tools there were at hand to share the news. Today, online periodicals allow readers access to an information stream from around the world live or within seconds of events

actually happening. The manner in which journalists spread the news is constantly changing. Some of those changes are good, some are great, and some might be less so, but they all present challenges both to those of us who put together the news and attempt to disseminate it and to those who receive the news. Adding Layar to the Westerly News is one of those changes with potential to be truly useful and exciting. It will allow us to offer our readers much more content than we could ever fit onto the

pages we print and in many different formats. There will be birthing pains and learning curves for all of us as we go along, but we’re excited to be able to offer this service and we hope you’ll be excited by it too. So download the free Layar App and enjoy the experience. If you have suggestions for things we can include in our enhanced news service, let us know. And keep us abreast of any problems you find so we can keep improving the service for you — our readers and advertisers.

mani Levine and Lachlan Oliwa for baking; and to Hunter Allen, Kim English, Dempsey Appenheimer and Timmea Williams for generally being helpful. JYEP youth developed their skills in many areas, among which were: BOX OFFICE - Lachlan Stewart (Manager), Lachlan Oliwa, Anthony Louie, William Fortune; MINI-MARKET – Kaida Evans (Manager), Emily Bilkowski, Kaya Hickey; MC – Maxtin Lengyel; FACE PAINTING – Eden Stewart (Manager), Angelina Louie, Leigha Auld, Allora Hickey; CONCESSION

Students benefit from generosity Dear Editor, The Pacific Rim Arts Society wishes to thank the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust for their financial support and the Ucluelet Parks and Recreation Commission for their collaboration to host our recent Youth Workshops in May at the Ucluelet Community Centre. We had over 10 students from Grades 8 to 12 attend the free four week after school workshops in digital photography and acrylic painting. With the assistance of Shannon McWhinney (Visual Arts Teacher at USS) and Mandala Smulders (Youth Coordinator at UCC) PRAS developed these two workshops to fit the needs of our youth from our surrounding

communities. To make these workshops accessible to all youth (Tofino, Ucluelet, and Area) we provided these sessions for free, right after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3-5 p.m. so that students could take the late bus home. Our excellent instructors Douglas Ludwig (Photography) and Rebekka Lim (Acrylic Painting) provided an open teaching atmosphere that was suited to each student’s level of ability. PRAS will continue to build from our experiences with these workshops and collaborations for future youth programs in the arts. The Board of Directors, Pacific Rim Arts Society

CBT acknowledges hard work of board members Dear Editor, On behalf of the staff and board of the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust, I would like to acknowledge the long service of Larry Baird and Gary Johnsen, whose terms on the board ended in May. Mr. Baird has been with the organization since its inception and was one of the signatories to the original application to UNESCO. For many of these years he served as the co-chair. Mr. Johnsen also served on the board for a lengthy period and, most recently, was the organization’s treasurer. We thank them for their years of service to the Biosphere

Reserve region communities and wish them well in their future endeavours. We would also like to recognize and thank the current CBT board: Violet Clark, Tammy Dorward (cochair), Dan Edwards, Stephanie Hughes (treasurer), Geoff Lyons, Al McCarthy (secretary), Don McMillan, Anne Mack and Cathy Thicke (co-chair). If you have any questions about the CBT and its projects in the region, please drop by our Tofino office or visit our website: www.

Two young women were in town last week to educate people about the need to recycle used oil, used anti-freeze and scrap tires. Carmen Ang and Nadine Hoyt are part of the eighth annual Summer Ambassador tour around the province. The tour is put on each year by the British Columbia Used Oil Management Association and Tire Stewardship B.C. “We’re trying to raise awareness about the importance of recycling used oil and scrap tires and to let people know how and where they can do this,” says Ang. The duo visited used oil recycling and scrap tire facilities to see how local programs are working and if there is more information those facilities need to help promote local recycling rates, adds Hoyt. This year the program is sending two teams of ambassadors. Hoyt

Edge-to-Edge running strong The Edge-to-Edge Marathon will make its 14th appearance this Sunday bringing about 600 runners to the West Coast with their supporters in tow. The marathon began as an idea shared between two locals, Sue Payne and Cheryl Magnusson, who routinely jogged together from the Junction to Ucluelet. The pair raised the idea to Ucluelet’s recreation commission and noted the near-perfect marathon distance between Tofino and Ucluelet. The chamber of commerce’s manager Kara-Lynn Bragg and special events assistant Rosemary Talford ran with the idea and became the marathon’s first race directors in 2000.

The chamber led the charge because of the marathon’s potential to bring tourism dollars to local businesses, according to Payne who is the current race director and chamber general manager. Marathoners quickly embraced the marathon’s 42-kilometre course and in 2002 it won the national Attractions Canada award for best sporting event in Canada. “We were up against some really spectacular events,” says race director Sue Payne, “one of the biggest reasons why we won was because it was an economic development strategy and at that time was pretty new and out of the box thinking.” The unique course incorporates local beaches and trails to deliver a unique West Coast experience to runners. —

Ucluelet local ready for ninth marathon volunteer experience ANDREW BAILEY Westerly News The runners of the 14th annual Edge-toEdge marathon will see a familiar face along their trek this Sunday as Kate Mantta will make her ninth appearance as a volunteer. Mantta moved to Ucluelet from England in 2005 and an immediate quest to get acquainted with her new community led her to the local chamber of commerce. “I really believe in community, one of the reasons I moved to Ucluelet was because I loved the community spirit,” she says. “I felt a commitment to participate and the reason I went to the chamber was because I thought it would enable me to get to know people and put myself out there.” Mantta became the volunteer coordinator for the marathon’s water stations in her second year with the chamber-run event and she has held this position ever since.

“You feel this great sense of being a team; the whole village is a team,” she says. “Just to see people working together is really fun and, to be in that role as a volunteer at the water stations, you’re helping other people have fun and helping them be safe.” Through her role, Mantta encourages local businesses to participate in the event by assembling water station teams of about 6 members each. Once she has her 13 teams in place, she ensures everyone is up to speed on what they need to do and encourages them to dress up and have fun during race-day. Along with dishing out water to marathoners racing past, Mantta’s volunteer teams keep an eye out for runner safety, help keep traffic and garbage clear from the course, and “cheer like there’s no tomorrow.” The marathon enjoys solid contribution from a pool of committed volunteers that expands each year.

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paddle the Edge kayaking race has been cancelled. Majestic Ocean Kayaking introduced the event last year to supplement Edge-toEdge marathon festivities and 16 racers participanted. Majesticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operator Tracy Eeftink says the event was successful but participants suggested it be held over the weekend. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event was scheduled for Saturday but low registration has prompted its cancellation. Eeftink speculates the low registration is because people are resting up for Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marathon and she says the event will return next year but on a different day, possibly over the May Long Weekend. She is confident the race will find a place on the West Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event calendar because of a strong local interest in paddling. This interest was shown during Majesticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Pad-

The paddle club was offered through Uclueletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recreation department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the people had never done it before, some were really good paddlers already,â&#x20AC;? Eeftink says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some people actually went out and bought kayaks because they loved it so much.â&#x20AC;? Along with providing affordable kayaking experiences, Eeftink says the club gave Majesticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff

an opportunity to get some training in before summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busy season. She encourages any locals interested in the program to look for its return next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all had a really good time, they got out and they got challenged, they practiced rescues, they worked on their strokes, they made new friends, they learned a lot, and they absolutely loved getting out there paddling.â&#x20AC;?
