    Its about the journeyTired paddlers Chief Gordon Planes, and Andrew, Justin and Joey Kasika-Planes return from their annual tribal journey.This years annual Tribal Journey took place at the Quinault Indian Nation, located by Taholah on the southwestern corner of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington. Chief Planes said that 25 members of the Tsou-ke Nation attended. It was a good journey, a drug and alcohol free event, said Chief Planes upon touching ground again in Sooke.The Tribal Journey is an annual event featuring ocean-going canoes, celebrated by coastal nations from Alaska, British Columbia and Washington. This years theme was Honouring Our Warriors, and it lasted six days, 24-hours-a-day, from August 1 to 6.

    Council authorizes spending for landPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    It appears that a document signed in the 1920s has resur-faced and a portion of a gazetted road will be given back to the own-ers of property along West Coast Road.

    At the District of Sooke regular council meeting on August 12, local resident Terrance Martin questioned council as to the need to compensate the developer for a pro-vincial highway dedi-cation. He also ques-tioned why the district is giving the owner a piece of waterfront property.

    The developer should be buying it from the district, said Martin. Its a gorgeous beach down there.

    A portion of the prop-erty at 7707 West Coast Road was taken as road dedication back in 1922 but it was never used for the road. Council is proposing to close and remove the highway dedication and dispose portions of unused gazetted road. The Land Use Committee recommended a direct exchange of the pro-posed gazetted road. The owner requested a direct exchange with no financial payment to

    the district.The property was

    expropriated for a road which was never put in, said Mayor Wendal Milne.

    Martin stated that the province should be compensating the property owner, not the district.

    Council gave third reading to Bylaw 574,, West Coast Road Clo-sure and Disposal Bylaw, 2013.

    Other items on the council agenda included a delegation from the Sooke Animal Food and Rescue Soci-ety requesting coun-cil help them acquire a piece of property on which to build a cat shelter. They also requested funding for a generator and/or funds for a shed. Margarita Dominquez, speak-ing for the society, said they are dealing with an overwhelming feline population in the region.

    A matter of referrals came before council in regard to a rezon-ing application and the unnecessary number of referrals sought in such applications.

    Cutting the number of required referrals would help streamline the process.

    Councillor Rick Kasper said, referrals

    are a waste of time.Mayor Milne sent

    this issue back to the Land Use Committee to investigate.

    The district is amid the process of acquir-ing land for both the connector road from Church Road to Otter Point Road as well as land for the town cen-tre road network and the roundabout.

    Property will be pur-chased from the Wad-ams family for an 11- metre strip along the frontage of the prop-erty at 2182 Church Road and a 25-metre strip along the south boundary. McElhanney Consulting Ltd. is the project manager for the design and construc-tion. This portion will be constructed before the Phillips-Charters section. This project is expected to cost in the realm of $1.9-million.

    The district is also purchasing strips of land on Sooke Road and Goodmere Road for the future Waterview Road. The new road will lead to the water-front. The roundabout and property purchase for it will cost the dis-trict around $850,000 with funds coming from the Gas Tax Revenue and road Development Cost Charges.

    Sooke News Mirror office relocatedPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    The Sooke News Mirror has been relo-cated to Seaview Busi-ness Centre after fire destroyed their prem-ises on July 31.

    The early morning blaze was a difficult fire to control as the flames travelled through the

    building below the roof. Thousands of gallons of water was used to squelch the fire and in the process the archives and a lot of paper was destroyed in the Sooke News Mirror office.

    By pulling together as a team, the staff at the Mirror were able to recover a few items

    and, most importantly, the data in the comput-ers. Sooke firefighters aided in the recovery. They managed to put out the next edition on time.

    The temporary office is at 1A, 6631 Sooke Road, directly across from Home Hardware.

    We managed to relocate to Seaview

    Business Centre and although a little smaller were going to make it work, said publisher Rod Sluggett.

    The phone number (250-642-5752) and email addresses remain the same. Copies of the paper can be picked up at that location.

    Sirens and lights figure in parade

    The Sooke Fire Res-cue Service began pro-tecting life and prop-erty in the Sooke com-munity and neighbour-ing areas in 1913.

    It this level of dedica-tion and commitment to our neighbours that has shaped us in to who we are today.

    Sookes first firehall was built across from the Evergreen Cen-tre along Sooke Road at the vacant lot. The current firehall #1 was built in 1996 along with

    the municipal hall.Come out and sup-

    port Sooke Fire Rescue at our next event, and join in the celebration of our 100 years of com-munity service.

    On August 24 we will be hosting an Emer-gency Vehicle Parade and Show and Shine at John Phillips Memorial Park, 2201 Otter Point Road.

    The parade will start at 10:30 am at SEAPARC Leisure Com-plex and proceed to John Phillips Memorial Park, where there will be food concessions, inflatable games and kids activities as well

    as emergency vehicles on display.

    For more informa-tion, please contact

    In todays world of shortened attention spans and immediate gratification, its impres-sive when one can stay focussed on an intellec-tual task for a few hours, never mind eight.

    When Rowan James gets engrossed in a game of chess, four hours easily slip by. In fact, when he recently attended a chess train-ing camp in Seattle, eight hours easily drifted by unnoticed.

    Whats exceptional about this is not the eight-hour attention span, but the eight years. That would be how old Rowan is. Rowan is an eight-year old boy who studies chess tactics and strat-egies for fun.

    Hes been playing seri-ously since he was six. His father, local artist blacksmith Jake James, first showed Rowan how the characters move back when he was four. His older sister, Olivia, got Rowan interested in the game. These days,

    its his mother, Miranda Aloma, who coaches him. Admittedly, she uses pre-scripted set strategies to guide her moves, since in his past two years of serious engagement Rowan has far surpassed all family members in the game. Although, Rowan con-fesses, Olivia can still beat him in a game of checkers.

    Rowans passion for chess has already

    turned him into a national traveller. In July, he competed in Ottawas nation-wide 2013 Canadian Youth Chess Championship (CYCC), which went from July 10-13. There, he ranked third in his age-group (U8...
