Mom tricks suspected child lurer into arrest Mother of man charged with luring offences fought for funding to help him cope with FAS Roszan Holmen News staff

It started innocently. Beth was playing a video game on her 15-year-old daughter’s cellphone, when a text message arrived from a guy. It didn’t sit right. Suspicious about its sender, Beth texted back, unbeknownst to her daughter. “All I had to do to act like a 15-year-old girl was drop my vocabulary, add a few ‘yeahs’ and smiley faces,” she said. “I had the guy convinced.” She learned the man was 24, that he met her daughter on Nexopia, a social networking site. She also learned her daughter had sent him explicit photos of herself. “I texted him and said … ‘You know I’m 15, right? You don’t have a problem with that, do you?’ He said, ‘No, of course not, baby.’” The name Beth is a pseudonym used to protect her daughter’s identity, in compliance with a publication ban imposed by the court. Over five days, starting July 8, Beth exchanged dozens of messages with the man, with the goal of gathering enough evidence to secure a conviction. His intentions, she said, were “lude and crude sexual acts.” When he initiated sexual texting, she invited him over on a premise of being at home alone. “I thought I better get this guy over here, and I better talk to him,” explained Beth. On July 13, he agreed to take the bus to Beth’s house. At first she wanted her own justice, but then had second thoughts and called police. Waiting by the door, holding pepper spray

and wearing steel-toed boots, she didn’t know who would arrive first. “My mother bear instincts kicked in, and I was just ready to take down somebody who presented a potential harm to my children.” Another text arrived: he was down the street and on his way. She ran out the door to meet him halfway, but police arrived first. Victoria police Const. Mike Russell confirmed police arrested Neil F., last name withheld, and confiscated his computer. He is charged with Internet luring of a person under 16, and invitation to sexual touching of a person under 16. His next court appearance is Oct. 15. “I want children to be aware. I want mothers to be aware,” said Beth, who has had serious conversations with her daughter about safety and the Internet. nnn

But this isn’t a simple story about combatting Internet predation. It’s also a tale about another mother going to great lengths to keep her son out of harm’s way. Fiona Gow, a lawyer based in Oak Bay, adopted Neil as a baby. “(Neil’s natural mother) was honest. She told me she’d consumed alcohol and drugs during the initial part of the pregnancy,” said Gow. As a young child, Neil would light fires and call 911 when they got out of control. His fetal alcohol syndrome didn’t allow him to see the consequences in advance. When calm, he was loving and caring, but when overwhelmed, he’d explode. PLEASE SEE: ‘I don’t think we’re the real victims,’ Page A7

Trumpeting the chief With the ceremonial passing of the trumpet, retiring fire Chief Doug Angrove, left, hands over the reins of the Victoria Fire Department to Jeff Lambert last Friday. Lambert will have his work cut out for him – the department responded to more than 35,000 emergency calls since Angrove became chief in 2006.

typically happens six months to a year after the request is made, the process has been delayed “mainly due to the current number of outstanding requests received by the (review) panel prior to the township’s request,” said the Ministry of Public Works and Government Services in a statement. The process also slowed after several members of the advisory panel and the chairperson were replaced last year. Doug Rundell of North Saanich is heading the panel. The lines of communication between the township and Rundell were recently opened, although when a review will begin has not been finalized. “It’s going to go slowly through the system,” said Karen Blakely, Esquimalt’s director of financial services. “It’s first going through the paperwork and then deciding what to do, so hopefully in the next couple of months we’ll have a clearer picture of what’s going on, because it’s the first time ... we’ve been through (a review), as well.” Federal properties represent about 40 per cent of the township’s property tax base. emccracken@vicnews.com

The competition, which wrapped yesterday (Aug. 2), is the Olympics for model aircraft owners, he says. Four Canadians, including fellow Saanichite Dave Reaville, travelled to Indiana for the worlds, to compete against some 90 other pilots from 32 different countries.

Canada fares relatively well on the international circuit, says Byrne, usually cracking the top-10 at the biennial world championships. This was his first time piloting at the competition and – prior to leaving for Muncie – he said he’s looking forward to literally flying the flag for his country.

To help judges and spectators identify his plane in the air, Byrne painted a large Canadian flag on the underbelly of his craft. “I’m really excited about representing Canada. It’s an honour,” he says. “And you worked hard for it,” adds his wife, Robyn.

ike a pro golfer lining up his drive from the tee, Mark Byrne takes time to correct his posture, balance his weight and position his arms comfortably before beginning. Now he’s ready to go. With the flick of a joystick, the large but lightweight airplane in front of him zooms across a flat Central Saanich field and lifts gracefully into the sky. “It’s like ballet in the air,” Byrne says of his hobby, precision aerobatics with radio-controlled airplanes. With a calm demeanour, the 50-year-old sends his brightly coloured plane away from Michell Airpark while performing loops and rolls and turns midair. “We do a lot of the manoeuvres you see in a full-scale air show,” he says, listing off such moves as Cuban eights, stall turns and eightpoint rolls integrated within the loop. Piloting an RC aircraft, he says, is more difficult than taking the helm of an airplane. “Flying full scale, you’re in control at the centre of the airplane. But with this, you’re on the ground just watching from a distance. Your mind’s trying to tell your fingers what to tell the airplane to do,” Byrne says. Difficulty aside, the Saanich resident has been a competitive flier for half a dozen years and represented Canada this week at the FAI World Championship in Mun-

Though she doesn’t pilot planes like her husband, she’s just as immersed in the model aircraft culture. The couple used to work for a company that sold RC pieces. Robyn still works there while Mark is now employed building composite parts for fullsized airplanes. “You need that support from home. She’s my No. 1 supporter,” Byrne says, acknowledging his wife. “For me, at the level I’m flying, it’s like a second job. After work, I’m out here practising for three, four hours a night. On weekends, it’s four to five hours a day.” Practice and repetition are everything when you’re about to perform on the world stage. Every single pilot at the worlds must fly the same 17-sequence routine in under eight minutes, and are judged solely on the accuracy of the manoeuvres. But presentation counts. “Everyone flies it differently, but you try to use as much time as you can so it looks graceful, not rushed,” he says. “There’s no scoring for presentation, but you are trying to make it as presentable as possible, to differentiate from one manoeuvre to the next.” Though Byrne considers it a sport, he also concedes it’s a hobby in which there’s very little money. Competitions are held almost exclusively for pride, honour and bragging rights, which is why went in to the worlds with no anxiety. “It’s a competition when you’re at the flight line, but I’m really only flying against myself,” he says. “There’s an amazing amount of pressure to get that flight perfect … But at the end of the day, the airplane is just a tool. The pilot, at some point, has to fly it.” Though the world championship is over, Byrne will remain in Muncie to fly in the U.S. National competition. kslavin@saanichnews.com

New CEO eyes reduction of harbour terminals Roszan Holmen News staff

resources. I think that there’s room for consolidation. Seven terminals - that’s a lot.” It’s an idea Randy Wright of Harbour Air is already moving on. He recently released plans for a floating terminal shared with Kenmore AIr. The president of Black Ball Ferry Line has also long advocated consolidating his M.V. Coho terminal with that of the Clipper next door. Consolidation would make it easier for the public, and would prevent customs agents from having to walk back and forth between both facilities, said president Ryan Burles. The two terminals, however, are located on land controlled by the Provincial Capital Commission, not the GVHA. “That’s one of the issues,” said Burles. “Different people control different lands, and how you make it work, it seems there are more hurdles than there should be.” Whether Grad could influence the province to act, Burles offers “Maybe he could.” “People speak highly of him, so I’m looking forward to hearing more about his ideas.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Victoria harbour hosts seven active terminals, leaving the new head of the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority scratching his Curtis Grad head. The JFK airport is the only the two cruise-ship terminals at example that comes close, said Ogden Point. It’s an idea which promises to CEO Curtis Grad. It gives the sense there’s no plan in place, make operations more efficient and open up land for other purhe added. Grad stepped up to the posi- poses. But his vision doesn’t end at tion eight weeks ago – the same day protesters first voiced oppo- Ogden Point. Victoria harbour also includes sition to an upcoming visit by the Esmeralda, a Chilean navy two float-plane terminals, two ship with a black history of tor- ferry terminals, and one helicopter terminal. Grad plans to ture. The timing was, in a way, a launch talks with operators and trial by fire. It’s also a realistic customers to see where there is dose of what’s likely in store for room for some consolidation. “At this point I’m proposing Grad. He steps into a position respon- we talk with everybody that’s sible for juggling diverse interest involved in those seven or eight groups – some of which have terminals to see if we can start been antagonistic toward the combining our efforts and our aims of the GVHA. Float home owners complain of being priced out of Fisherman’s Wharf by a mandate to bring moorage in line with market rates. The James Bay Neighbourhood Association is critical of growth of the cruise ship industry, which comprises the harbour authority’s biggest source of revenue. Grad has also inherited plans for a major overhaul of Ogden Point. Former executive director Paul Servos launched the master plan shortly before quitting suddenly last August. It calls for examining commercial and publicamenity opportunities on the 12-hectare site, which currently houses large tracts of vehicle storage, among other things. Grad will now take some time to have a “good look” at the plan, which outlines what the site is capable of accommodating. The next step, he said, is to analyze what the market calls for and what the community wants, and then proceed to Victoria city council for rezoning in about 18 months.

Digital health care from home Natalie North News staff

Hours spent in a doctor’s waiting room could be a thing of the past, if a trio of UVic students have their way. The engineering majors created an affordable digital stethoscope system, able to remotely listen to a person’s lungs, heart and intestines from anywhere in the world. The eSteth is a digital stethoscope that allows users to log their vital readings online from home, which doctors or nurses can then access. “Telemedicine is becoming pretty big, but it’s largely inaccessible to the home user, just due to system costs and infrastructure,” said Christian McMechan, who designed the digital stethoscope before creating the accompanying eSteth software system with his classmates. Despite other similar products on the market, the system received an intellectual property award from the university on July 22 for its innovation and commercial potential. The eSteth was designed with affordability in mind, McMechan said, estimating their digital stethoscope could be purchased for about a quarter of the price of existing digital stethoscopes, which retail for approximately $500. nnorth@saanichnews.com

‘I don’t think we’re the real victims here’ Continued from Page A1

Integrated court Neil F. has been referred to Victoria’s Integrated Court, and is being supervised by a community response team. The separate court stream deals exclusively with people suffering from mental illness, addiction and other vulnerabilities. Its aim is to ensure sentencing includes support networks to help break the cycle of crime. Proceedings of the integrated court are closed to the public. For this reason, the News has decided to withhold the last name of the accused.

week. “He said to me he’d really like to have a steady relationship with someone, and that’s really what’s behind it (the charges). It’s that real need for companionship, because he’s not predatory.” But, Gow added, “I can certainly understand from (Beth’s) point of view, she’d think he’s a monster.” Neil didn’t know about legal age of consent, Gow said. “I’m sorry to say, it wasn’t something

Beth’s daughter’s Internet access is also restricted with a password, and her cellphone taken away. It has been an experience that cuts deep for Beth. Back when she was 15, she hooked up with a 33-year-old man. “Had somebody stepped in, I wouldn’t have done the things I did,” she said. Beth got pregnant and eventually fled with their one-year-old daughter to escape the man’s abuse. Now that one year old is 15 years old. Since the arrest, she’s been terrified and had nightmares, said Beth. “A few days after, my daughter was weeding the garden and she started crying, and she said ‘Mom, I was just thinking about all the moms who wouldn’t have done anything.’” Beth’s stomach has also been churning constantly. But her perspective has evolved. “I don’t think we’re the real victims here. I think Neil is the real victim … I see him as someone needing help.” rholmen@vicnews.com

Healthy Eyes. Doctor Delivered.

Can glasses weaken my eyes? There is a common misconception that wearing corrective lenses weakens the eye and helps speed the deterioration of eyesight. There is absolutely no scientific basic for this. Studies have shown no difference in the course of a person’s eyesight with or without glasses. Sometimes it may seem as if the glasses make eyesight weaker. Uncorrected vision may appear worse than it did before glasses. This is because vision seems much less clear without glasses after enjoying the clear vision that they provide. We should not blame glasses for making vision worse as we age. Almost everyone develops the need for reading correction between the age of 39 and 45. This is because the focusing lens inside the eyes becomes less flexible and glasses are required to allow us to read comfortably. Straining your eyes and trying to force them to see without glasses will not in any way strengthen them. Actually the best way to keep eyesight at its best at any age is to get regular professional eyecare. Postponement or procrastination jeopardizes comfort, efficiency and even one’s safety.

He needed constant support. But when he turned 19, the provincial government ruled he no longer qualified for funding because his IQ of 79 was too high. Gow took her case to the B.C. Supreme Court. “They couldn’t just apply a blanket IQ test for determining who would or would not be eligible for services,” Gow said. “There’s so much more involved in what allows a person to function well and safely in society and their capacity to care for themselves. Neil’s (capacity) is unfortunately very low.” Gow’s successful case made headlines, and Neil’s words at the time were sadly prophetic. “If I didn’t have support, I would choose the wrong way,” he was quoted as saying in 2006. Now, one of Gow’s main concerns is that Neil be able to keep his private housing. “We’re really hoping that what happened with this young girl doesn’t put that in jeopardy, because it would be quite devastating for him and us if he were to lose his current accommodation.” Despite winning continued funding through the courts, Gow and her husband are Neil’s primary support system. No support worker checks in on him. Recently, Gow met him for lunch, as she tries to do every

OUR VIEW

HST referendum a waiting game With the deadline Friday (Aug. 5) for HST referendum ballots to be received by Elections B.C., anticipation is building for the result. It’s almost like betting on a horse race then waiting for the race to be run. Except that there will be no big winners and few big losers after the votes are tallied. Much time and resources have been spent promoting the benefits (vote ‘no’) and downfalls (vote ‘yes’) of the harmonized sales tax. To the government’s credit, it has done a good job spelling out the scenarios for taxpayers, both of keeping the HST and alternately, going back to the PST-GST combination. The Fight HST camp, on the other hand, has done virtually nothing to acknowledge any positive aspects of the now year-old sales tax system. To us, that one-sided vision has done the public a disservice and has only contributed to the confusion over the real differences between the two taxing strategies. Where the Liberals have been attempting to simplify the debate, Bill Vander Zalm and company have been doing their best to muddy the facts and appeal more to people’s hearts than their heads. Where that leaves voters who haven’t yet mailed or dropped off their HST referendum ballot is, largely, in the dark and, in many cases, likely to avoid voting altogether. And that is unfortunate given that this vote will directly impact every resident in the province daily. Unlike elections, in which voters support a candidate or party on their merits, or back the party they expect to form government, a referendum is simple – nothing else need be considered before casting one’s ballot. Which way will the referendum go? It seems those convinced the HST is a bad idea are sure it’ll be defeated. HST supporters tend to be a lot more uncertain of the result, yet hopeful. Regardless, no one need fear backing the wrong horse. The sun will still come up, government will continue to operate and those prone to doing so will eventually find something else to complain about. What do you think?

First, mechanical meters are obsolete and soon won’t be available. Second, B.C. is about twice as big as Germany. Finding, let alone fixing damaged power lines is a monumental task. A smart grid (much more than just digital meters) is not only self-assessing, it can be made self-healing, rerouting power to blacked-out areas when weather, transformer failure or vehicle accidents cut power. Do smart meters continuously communicate with a “mother ship,” as some claim? Do they record when you get up at night to pee? No and no. These are the kinds of nonsense claims that surround the smart meter issue. B.C. Hydro says four to six transmissions from a smart meter to a local hub each day amount to about a minute in total. Radio wave exposure is equivalent to a halfhour cell phone call every 20 years. The British National Cancer Institute just published an extensive study of children with brain tumours and exposure to cell phones. It found no correlation. Somebody should send a postcard to the Green Party and tell them about it.

LETTERS Premier the queen of political flip-flops Premier Christy Clark has engaged in more flip-flops than a freshly-landed salmon. The brilliant cartoon by O. J. Heggen, July 22, contrasts Clark’s recent view that she couldn’t break David Hahn’s outrageous, legally binding contract, but as deputy premier helped the Liberals break the health workers contract. Recent flip-flops also include her Liberal leadership positions on the HST ranging from having the legislature vote on its abolition to opposing reduction of the HST from 12 to 10 per cent as it would be bribing taxpayers with their own money. Perhaps the most amusing was her two-day turnabout on the future of the Senate - initially calling for its abolition and then posing two impractical thoughts on reform. Whether the issue is serious – such as the massive HST tax shift from corporate taxes onto individuals – to her frivolous contradictions on the Senate, one wonders if she is really ready for prime time. Can one trust an incoherent premier and a Liberal party preoccupied over the past two years with their HST debacle

instead of governing in the interest of the people rather than merely a party in decline? Ron Faris Victoria

Should menacing dog species be banned? While out for our daily walk on the evening of July 24, my elderly schnauzer, Winston, was savagely attacked by two dogs at the corner of Avebury and Haultain avenues, a residential part of Fernwood. The attackers intention was to kill. I had to physically beat them off. Wounds from this unprovoked surprise assault required medical attention for both myself and Winston. Fortunately he is recovering. I would like to thank the many caring neighbours who immediately came out of their homes and offered assistance. The concern and kindness expressed during this traumatic event is deeply appreciated. I do wonder about the type of person who would keep a dog such as a pit bull or Rottweiler as a “pet,” when there are so many breeds available that make appropriate companions. The ownership of a

dangerous animal would seem an attempt to compensate for a personal lack of confidence. Ontario has banned certain breeds as a menace to public safety, especially to small children. Should we not do the same? Ron Stefik Victoria

Another solution offered on deer Re: Finger pointing on deer pointless (Our View, June 29) Local governments should consider selling urban deer hunting licences to responsible citizens. Rather then spending money, the municipalities might stand to make some. Obviously guns are out, but trapping these extremely tame deer should be easy. They can then be killed at a different location (to spare the faint of heart and the children from the horrible reality that humans are omnivores). Patrick Lane Oak Bay

Stage on Fire Blue Bridge artistic director brings back his classic musical Natalie North News staff

It’s been 25 years since Brian Richmond first staged the classic Canadian musical Fire. Now he’s bringing it to the Capital Region for the first time. Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre’s presentation of Fire marks the eighth mounting of the show for Richmond, who originally produced the Paul Ledoux and David Young script in Thunder Bay in 1985. Richmond is directing, helped by music direction from composer Bruce Ruddell. “It’s never failed to ignite ecstatic enthusiasm from the audience,” said Richmond, producing artistic director for Blue Bridge. “(The fact) this is the first production in Victoria (is surprising), given its 26-year history of success across the country.”

Fire draws on the relationship of 50s and 60s rock legend Jerry Lee Lewis and his real-life cousin, televangelist Jimmy Swaggart, through telling the fictional story of brothers Cale and Herchel Blackwell. Set over three decades ending in 1980, the story follows the lives of Cale (played by Zachary Stevenson), Herschel (Jacob Richmond) and the woman they love, Molly King (Celine Stubel). Show-goers can expect an entertaining evening of gospel classics and 50s rock music played by Al Sabourin on lead guitar, Steve Duben on bass and Malcolm Cooley on drums, in a show with deeper undercurrents. “What concerned the playwright and myself was the tendency for certain right-wing fundamentalist groups to become involved in the political process in the United States and Canada,” Richmond said. “We were concerned about that erosion of separation between church and state. I think (audiences) are going to enjoy it a great deal and find it relevant to our times.” nnorth@saanichnews.com

Great balls of fire ■ Fire, staged by the Blue Bridge Repertory Theatre, opens tomorrow (Aug. 4) at 8 p.m. and thereafter runs Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. at the McPherson Playhouse. Matinees at 2 p.m. are scheduled for Saturdays and Sundays plus Wednesday, Aug. 10. ■ Tickets range from $33.25 to $42.75 and are available through the McPherson Box office at 250-386-6121 or online at www.rmts.bc.ca. ■ The production runs until Aug. 14 and is part of Blue Bridge Theatre’s 2011 people’s choice season.

his bumper. On lap five, Wade took over the lead with Smith holding on to the second spot but on lap nine drivers were not quite so lucky as Parkinson went around maybe with a little help. Everyone behind checked up and some damage was done to Dan Myers and Aaron Wilkie’s machines as Wade had started to open a good lead. On the restart, Wade again got a good jump and went back to the lead as Cody Aumen made his way into second.

Western Speedway hosts the next race of 2011 for the competitive Late Model & Stock Car Series on August 6th. Last season, Ryan Wade was a force to reckon with as he won six Feature events, including five in succession to close out the season. This season Wade continues to be a force as he has won two Features in a row with Kirt Rompain behind the wheel for the first event.

On a later restart Wade had Aumen on his outside and these two drivers traded the lead with Aumen actually leading lap twenty-four and five. Wade got the inside groove when Aumen baubled just a bit and regained the lead on lap twenty-six. Wade went unchallenged to the chequered flag with Aumen, Wilkie, Parkinson, and Cottam rounding out the top Brent Morris in his Late Model #29 car makes his move. five positions. This is the third win for the #95 car with Kirt Rompain with one victory and Wade taking Sam Hunt and Billy Stidston led fifteen cars to the green flag for fifty laps the last two. Interestingly enough this is the second time Aumen has chased of racing for the Stock Car Feature event and it didn’t take long for the action Wade to the flag in this highly competitive Series. to begin.

Everyone made it This Series should again be very competitive and as close as it has been through where ever there was a hole to get around and it didn’t even warrant over the last several years and on any given night any one of several drivers a yellow flag.

Peak Performance Project launching pad for acts Emma Prestwich News staff

She may only be in the Top 20, but Ashleigh Eymann feels like she’s already won. The 27-year-old hip-hop and soul performer, who has played around venues Victoria for almost a decade, is one of 20 finalists in this year’s Peak Performance Project, a Music B.C.funded competition that gives B.C. indie artists a chance to win big prizes and a platform to showcase their talent. It’s also a chance for the musicians to learn how to market themselves. Eymann had no idea she’d be picked and was initially worried she wouldn’t measure up to more “established” artists. “It warmed my heart. I feel like they were basing it on my potential,” she said. “They saw something in my music they wanted to cultivate.” Winning is secondary, Eymann said – she’s just grateful for the chance to gain exposure and industry know-how. The finalists were picked from a pool of 360 applicants, and assembled July 1 to play a 20-minute set at the Surrey Canada Day celebrations. On Aug. 26, they’ll head to Princeton, B.C. for a five-day boot camp on the music business. The next stage is a string of shows in Vancouver, where the finalists will be cut to 10, then five and eventually three. There is almost $250,000 in prize money available. Instead of a catty, Battle of the Bands-like atmosphere, Eymann said she feels a real “family energy” among the other finalists and Music B.C. judges. “It’s a huge support system of local musicians,” she said. Each finalist was given $5,000 last month to use at their discretion – some made viral videos, one artist used it for gas. Bob D’Eith, executive director of Music B.C., said artists are judged on how effectively they use the money. While Eymann is a seasoned performer, she thinks she has yet to really use social media to connect with

her fans and promote herself. “I feel like I could learn a lot in terms of creating myself in an industry where it’s all do-ityourself. I think this will give me the kick

that I need.” Other Victoria-based acts in the running for the prize money are Acres of Lions, Avairis, Current Swell, Lindsay Bryan and Maurice. Vancouver radio

station 100.5 The Peak gives heavy radio play to local acts, and plays a big role in promoting the finalists’ music. “Some of our artists are a bit spoiled,” said D’Eith.

Ashleigh Eymann is one of 20 finalists in the Peak Performance Project.

In the three years the project has run, it has helped launch the careers of Island artists like Kyprios, Vince Vaccaro and Said the Whale. intern@vicnews.com

Debt isn’t usually a hot topic for students on summer vacation, but University of Victoria students are already planning how they’ll attack their No. 1 issue this fall. The UVic Students’ Society (UVSS) is preparing to launch the WTF (Where’s the Funding) campaign, with the goal of turning around B.C.’s tarnished reputation for post-secondary funding. Students in B.C. are graduating with an average $27,000 of debt, according to the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS), and B.C. remains the only province in Canada that doesn’t have a provincial grants program in place. “What we’re looking at now is dire financial times,” said UVic Students’ Society chair Tara Paterson. “What the campaign will do is push both the major political parties to prioritize post-secondary education, should there be an election in the fall. If (no election happens), we’re looking to see some real governmental action from the B.C. Liberals.” The three main goals of the

Tara Paterson campaign are to convince government to increase core postsecondary funding; reduce or eliminate interest on student loans; and reinstate a provincial grants program. In 2002, the Liberals deregulated tuition fees, and consequently, they doubled in three years. By the CFS’ calculations, tuition fees in B.C. are now 10 per cent more than the national average, at $6,580 per year. The province, however, estimated tuition fees at $4,802 for the 2010-11 year. Regardless of the provincial average, with the current interest rate at 2.5 per cent above prime, a student’s $27,000 debt would balloon to $35,000 over a 10-year repayment period. Michel Turcotte, director of operations for the Camosun

College Student Society, says they draw on the CFS – which the UVSS voted to leave last year – to educate their members and raise such political issues as student debt. Part of that education, he says, is planning for graduation and knowing when to apply for interest relief before defaulting on repayments. The Ministry of Advanced Education has invested $2.5 billion in student financial assistance programs since 2001, including grants for students with disabilities and interest relief programs. “When you need (financial assistance) you can’t get it,” Turcotte said. “If you go into default status, you have to clear that up before you can go into loan remission status.” The CFS’s ongoing campaign against the rising cost of education, called Education Shouldn’t be a Debt Sentence, includes an online petition based on principles identical to the WTF campaign. “While tuition fees are going up and the quality of our education is decreasing, a generation of students is being bankrupted,” Paterson said. nnorth@saanichnews.com

When the United Nations declared famine in Somalia, the Victoria branch of the Canadian Red Cross began receiving calls from people asking to make individual donations. On July 20, the UN declared a famine in two regions of southern Somalia, following the worst drought in decades. The organization declares famine when malnutrition rates among children exceed 30 per cent, more than two people per 10,000 die daily, and people are unable to access food and other necessities. While no local groups have come forward to organize a Red Crosssponsored fundraising event to support relief efforts, people can donate online any time at www.redcross. ca and specify which campaign they’d like to support. nnorth@saanichnews.com

SPORTS Racers second in Edmonton Victoria’s Bill Okell and Dave Cormier drove to respective second-place finishes at the 2011 Eurasia Cup Invitational sports car race in Edmonton on July 24. The race ran on the Edmonton Indy track, just prior to the Indy Car race. Racing at the same time, Okell rallied his 1964 MGB to second in the third tier, or GT3, while Cormier pushed his 2008 Porsche to second overall (GT1). Recent improvements to his car forced Okell up a class in the sports car series – from GT4 to GT3 – once he arrived in Edmonton. It was a redeeming weekend for Okell, who passed three cars in the second-to-last-lap. “(Moving up a class) was an added challenge we were able to meet,” Okell said, despite breaking a cylinder and getting strafed by a Corvette. The cylinder went during Saturday’s (July 23) qualifying, and the how-do-you-do from the Corvette happened when both cars were trying to avoid a crash in the 45-minute race. Cormier was bumped from third to second when one of the two drivers ahead of him got penalized for contact with another car in the 48-car field. Next for Okell are two sports car club races, Aug. 6 and 7 at Mission Raceway, where he’s tied for first in the point standings after three of 10 races this year. Cormier will return to the Pirelli Driver’s Cup series in California in September. sports@vicnews.com

Lewis Ratcliff, left, was suspended by the Nanaimo Timbermen ownership on July 29. The ex-Victoria Shamrock is an elite lacrosse player but with a family, a business and as a coach for youth programs in Victoria and Seattle.

Ratcliff cut loose from Timbermen Star Victoria lacrosse player suspended for remainder of WLA season Greg Sakaki Nanaimo News Bulletin

The Nanaimo Timbermen’s suspension of star forward Lewis Ratcliff could mean the end of Ratcliff’s Western Lacrosse Association career. On Friday (July 29) Ratcliff was suspended for the rest of the 2011 season by Timbermen’s president Hadi Abassi for missing too many practices and games. “We need the type of player for our franchise that they are here, they practise with us, they play with us and they are fully here,” Abassi said. “He couldn’t be here for all the practices and he missed some of the games and I decided that’s not a very healthy thing for our franchise.” Ratcliff is 30 years old and is already one of professional lacrosse’s top-10 scorers of all time. But Abassi said it was still important for the star to be at practice. However, Ratcliff’s absence from Nanaimo’s 10-9 overtime loss in Coquitlam on July 23 seemed to be the tipping point. “It’s frustrating. I missed an important game but it was one they knew I

was going to miss a few months back,” Ratcliff told the News over the phone on Friday. “I missed (the Adanacs game) because of work. I do my best to be there as much as possible, I’m not in a position to sit around all day, a lot of guys are only 20 and 21 years old, they don’t have jobs and families and I have both and it’s hard to juggle, I’ve done my best.”

“It’s frustrating. I missed an important game but it was one they knew I was going to miss a few months back.” – Lewis Ratcliff

For the Coquitlam game Ratcliff was on a California tour as director and manager of the Seattle Starz youth field lacrosse program. “If I played then I don't take 30 boys for their California trip.” Ratcliff commutes to all Nanaimo games and practices from his home on the West Shore. He’s also part owner of a fitness studio and is the director of

Spectrum Community school’s lacrosse academy during the school year. Abassi said there was “miscommunication” between the team and Ratcliff. “I didn’t like that,” Abassi said. “I felt I wasn’t getting 100 per cent commitment to our franchise. “You can’t have two rules for two different players.” The suspension came on the same day the T-men visited Ratcliff’s hometown and former club, the Victoria Shamrocks, for the first of a home-andhome series that continued in Nanaimo on Saturday (July 30). “Lewis is a good friend of mine and I know he is upset by this decision,” said Art Webster, Timbermen coach. Ratcliff had 26 goals and 26 assists in 10 games this summer. Webster said the team will miss the sniper’s contributions, but will try to move on. With all his commitments he said he doesn’t see a return to the WLA. Ratcliff has one year left on his contract and the T-men say they will seek to trade him for fair value, not simply offer him his release. sports@nanaimobulletin.com With files from Travis Paterson

Saanich, Victoria make midget lacrosse finals The Victoria-Esquimalt Eagles claimed the final trophy of their provincial season, the midget-B box lacrosse championship in Coquitlam, July 24. Victoria-Esquimalt defeated the Coquitlam Adanacs 8-3 in the final. The south Island nearly won two midget championships as the A1 Saanich Tigers lost in their final, 7-2 to the Ridge Meadows Burarrds. Saanich’s Kyle Julien was named midget-A1 MVP Leading the Eagles was goalie Kiefer Hagedorn and his staunch 1.60 goals against average, an unheard of number for the offense-prone sport. Eagles’ runner Graeme Bates was voted to the all-star team and was named MVP of the midget-B provincials. Throughout the season the Eagles maintained a high level of discipline with few penalties, with Tyler Carter Given the Warrior Fair Play award for the Eagles. Coach Mark Hackwell was voted the midget-B Warrior Fair Play coach. sports@vicnews.com

Jr. ’Rocks dish team awards Brody Eastwood was an easy pick as the team’s rookie of the year. Eastwood led the Victoria junior Shamrocks in regular season scoring and was ninth overall in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League with 38 goals and 39 assists (77 points) in 21 games. Transition star Karsen Leung was named the team’s MVP and best conditioned athlete. Defenceman Brandon Smith’s play was nominated the most improved and transition player Adam Brown’s play as the most inspirational. Blair Pinnock was named the most sportsmanlike of the year, Austin Powell the top defender and goalie Cory Mayzes as the most popular player. sports@vicnews.com

Swimmers splash on national, world stages Saanich’s Ryan Cochrane continued his strong career with a silver medal in the men’s 800-metre freestyle swim at the 2011 FINA world aquatic championships in Shanghai, China. The championships include swimming, diving and water polo and ran from July 16 to 31. Cochrane finished 3.3 seconds behind gold-medal winner Yang Sun (China), who finished the race in seven minutes, 38.57 seconds. It’s a non-Olympic event for Cochrane, who won bronze in the 1,500m freestyle at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Cochrane finished fifth in the 400m freestyle and was yet to race the 1,500m at press time. Diver Riley McCormick was ninth on the 10m platform.

Summer blues Baseball season is over for the players of Hampton Little League. Hampton played host to the Little League majors (11-12) provincials at Hampton Park. The tourney wrapped up on Sunday, July 31.

Canada 10th in new event Also competing in China were University of Victoria Vikes swimmers Richard Weinberger (Calgary) and Aimeson King (Toronto). Weinberg and King were two of the three Canadians who finished 10th in the new mix-gender, open-water team pursuit with female swimmer Zsofi Balazs. Teams start the 5km race in staggered starts, swimming in threes, and use the strategy of drafting and pacing one another. Weinberger also placed 16th in the men’s 10km and 17th in the men’s 5km open-water swims. In August King will attend the 2011 Summer Universiade in Shenzhen, China, while Weinberger will compete at the pre-Olympic open-water championships in London, England.

Vikes rookie nets national silver Vikes rookie Hilary Caldwell (London, Ont.) won silver and bronze at the 2011 Summer National swimming championships in Pointe-Claire, Que., July 21-24.

Victoria man celebrates centenary Emma Prestwich News staff

At 100, Alf Trueman still has his teenage spirit. The Victoria man, who hit the century mark on Sunday, isn’t one to sit and lounge. He frequently strolls down Government Street, draws and writes poetry, and entertains fellow residents at the Glenshiel seniors residence with his violin and throaty singing. He learned to play the violin at age 90 “to get all the cute young girls,” said his daughter Elaine Otter. After suffering a heart attack three years ago, he was advised by doctors to cut back on playing. Now he pulls the violin out less often, mostly on birthdays. He winks as he plays a rendition of Unchained Melody, his bow moving quickly across the strings of the instrument. Trueman’s life wasn’t always so whimsical. His first job, at age 14, was as a pony cart driver in a coal mine in England, and at 17, while driving the cart for his father’s green grocery business, he was robbed at gunpoint. He then enlisted in the British Army at age 20, and a few years later was sent to Pakistan. He

was also rescued from the beach at Dunkirk, France during the Second World War and fought in one of the battles of El Alamein in Egypt. After the war ended, he travelled to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany. He learned about the sanctity of human life from one of his fellow soldiers, who urged another not to shoot a

German guard. “He said, ‘don’t, or you’ll be worse than they are,’” he said. Otter, who emigrated with her father to Canada in 1947, said she’s amazed by his life. “He has seen so much,” she said. Trueman, who has already received his congratulatory letter from Queen Elizabeth, isn’t the only centenarian at Glenshiel. Two other residents are 101 and 100 years old, almost as old as the building itself, which turns 102 this year. He said he’s “shocked” that he’s lived to be 100 but has a few ideas why. “I’m young at heart and think positive,” he said. intern@vicnews.com
