And if we cant do it right, wecant do it at all. </p><p>In prior years, the DFOhas opened fishing for large salmon at midnight on the</p><p>day of the derby. A move that may still happen, but announced too late. </p><p>Chances are they could do the same, Wetherell said, but he added a decision on the chinook fishery should have been made in January. </p><p>I cant throw my business, and my family life into chaos and try to slam together an event this huge because of time appropriated to me by the DFO.</p><p>Last year the derby saw 700 entrants come into town from all over the province, Washington State and Ontario, bringing in $400,000 </p><p>to the local economy. The invitational has had</p><p>such steady attendance, that the waiting list was thrown out, after no spaces opened up over the past 10 years. </p><p>Seven hundred people will be really disappointed when they hear the news, and theyll have to find something else to do forFathers Day after 25 years, Wetherell said.</p><p>Over the years, approximately $200,000 from</p><p>the derby have been donatedto salmon enhancement and restoration, with the main b e n e f a c t o r being The Pacific Salmon Foundation. </p><p>We put way more fish backin the streams than were taking </p><p>out, he said.Wetherell, 62, is a </p><p>co-founder for the event and has maintained his position as president since the derbys institution 25 years ago. </p><p>Its kind of been my little baby watching it grow, he said. Im still working, I run a construction company, and I have a family life. You dont want to let the baby go, but sometimes you dont have control over things.</p><p>According to Wetherell, there may be a derby next year. </p><p>This derby is a first class event, always has been. And if we cant do it right, we cant do it at all.</p><p>--George WetherellPresident JdF Invitational </p><p>Salmon Championship Society</p><p>Sharron Ho photos</p><p>A young, male cyclist, above,was struck on the corner of Anna Maria Road in front of Home Hardware around 2 p.m. Monday afternoon. According to a witness, the 18-year-old cyclist was coasting against traffic on Sooke Road and turned right on Anna Maria Road, where he was struck by a mid-sized truck. The witness said the vehicle was stopped and was about to turn onto Sooke Road. The cyclist was attended by paramedics, and taken into an ambulance. Sooke Fire Chief Steve Sorensen said the cyclist suffered from a severely cut up hand and was still conscious, but Sorensen did not know the full extent of his injuries. The bike and truck on scene did not appear to be damaged. Below, a vehicle sheared off a telephone pole on Otter Point Road on Monday resulting in a power outage which lasted a number of hours.</p><p>Cyclist injured</p><p>Hydro pole taken out</p><p>642-6480 Oliver Katz Personal Real Estate Corp. www.oliverkatz.com </p><p> we look after you </p><p> Beachcomber Oceanfront Condo 2BR OCEANFRONT Condo Exceptional price for immediate sale Popular oceanfront complex-Dont delay! </p><p> 5 Acre Country Paradise Picturesque, peaceful &amp;
