    Heroes in our midst save mans lifeBrittany LeeSooke News Mirror

    When Bobbie-jo Peter-son was driving home along Sooke Road lastJuly, she noticed a pair of legs sticking out from behind a suitcase by a bus stop near Drennan Street.

    Seeing the mans feet on the ground, Peter-son thought, some-one must be in trouble.

    I instinctively pulled over, she said, addingthat there was already a man there on thephone, calling for help.

    I was worried he wasntbreathing, Peterson said, adding that the collapsed mans face was blue.

    I thought he was dead or dying.

    Peterson, who was with her then 14-year-old son, began doing chest compres-sions on the collapsed man, who was visiting from Cal-gary and said to be in his 50s.

    At first, I wasnt really sure what to do but then, I guess, instinct came in, Peterson said.

    Having two sons with epi-lepsy, Peterson knows CPR, but she hadnt had to use her skills for about 15 years.

    In what seemed like no time at all, Gerry Boivin, a Langford resident with a military background, came to Petersons aide.

    The two contin-ued to resuscitate the man, using both com-pression and mouth-to-mouth techniques.

    My focus was on what I

    was doing, Peterson said. I just wanted this guy to live.

    Christina Klein, a newly trained officer with the Sooke RCMP, soon joined them. For the next 10 min-utes, the three continued giv-ing the man CPR while wait-ing for paramedics to arrive.

    Im so glad that we could keep this man alive with CPR while the ambu-lance was on its way, Klein said in a statement.

    Sooke RCMP, fire, and paramedics arrived to the call.

    Chris Daoust, paramedic with the Sooke B.C. Ambu-lance Service, began apply-ing shocks to the collapsed man. After the second shock, a pulse was felt, Daoust said.

    Its because these people stopped to help this man, Daoust said of Peterson, Boivin, and Klein on Wednesday.

    They actually took the time out to stop and see what was going on and called for help and then actually tried to help the person.

    Daoust nominated the three citizens for the BCASs Vital Link Award, which hon-ours peoples efforts in using CPR to save a life, acting as the vital link in increasing a patients survival rate before an ambulance arrives.

    The trio received their

    award in a recognition ceremony last Wednes-day (Aug. 8) at the Sooke ambulance station. Annu-ally, about 50 B.C. resi-dents receive the award.

    Patients suffering from cardiac arrest usually have a negative outcome even after receiving medical help from on-scene paramed-ics, according to Daoust.

    The early CPR keeps blood flow going to the

    brain, to the heart, so itminimizes the amount of damage and increases thepotential for the patient to make a full recovery, whichis, I think, the outcome that everyone wants, he said.

    It takes courage for wit-nesses or bystanders to stop and help, Michael McGregor, acting superintendent of the Sooke BCAS, said.

    Its not all the time people stop by (and help), it takes a lot of courage for peopleto stop by, and thats why were out here today award-ing these people with the Vital Link Award, McGregorsaid. Their unselfish act saved this mans life.

    The man recovered at the Royal Jubilee Hospi-tal in Victoria before being flown to Calgary, where he was rehabilitated.

    Last McGregor had heard, the man was in good health and did not suffer any brain damage.

    The early CPR kept hisbrain healthy and the rest of him healthy, McGregor said.

    When Peterson was notified, later that after-noon on July 7, 2011, that the Calgary man would be OK, she was elated.

    I was just shocked and really happy.

    However, being awarded for her help feels unnec-essary, Peterson said.

    I did what I hope another citizen would do for me, she said. Im just really grateful to (everyone involved), that they were there for support and their quick response.

    Three people provided the vital link which helped man survive heart attack

    TO ALL OF the athletes and scores of volunteers who made the Subaru Sooke Triathlon such a huge success.

    NO CHILI FOR YOU

    THE SOOKE LIONS Chilli Challenge scheduled for Sept. 8 has been cancelled due to a lack of interest.

    CORRECTION IN AN ARTICLE titled

    Final tournament for Slo-Pitch president, published on Aug. 8, Mike Gibson was incorrectly stated as being the president.

    HE IS IN fact, resigning from his position as vice-president.

    SECOND PLACE AND third place standings for the Sooke Salmon Enhancement Derby, which took place on Aug. 5 and 6, were Jesse Legg, with a 41.90-pound Chinook, followed by Dave Purnell with a 34.20-pound fish.

    Beautifying SookeSharron HoSooke News Mirror

    A local bakery is getting an outdoor makeover to beautify the streets and provide a portal to Vienna.

    Construction is underway at Little Vienna Bakery, located on 6726 West Coast Rd, to replace its wooden, elevated deck with a 600 sq. foot classic European- inspired stone-paved courtyard.

    The stones will be multi-coloured and level to the ground, allowing guests to sit in a sanctuary surrounded by raised garden beds. A retaining wall will line the perimeter and a three-tiered fountain will rest in the centre.

    Wood salvaged from the deck will also be used to create an arbor entryway for the new outdoor feature.

    The entire vision is to bring the European ambience indoors, outside, according to co-owner Micheal Nyikes.

    He also said the deck was partly removed to allow senior patrons with mobility issues easier access to outdoor seating.

    Its going to be completely accessible, its going to be level, Michael said.

    Were doing it with the intention of just creating a nice space for our customers thats accessible, and of course, Little Vienna Bakery fronts onto West Coast Road. (The courtyard) helps to enhance the visual appeal on the streets.

    He hopes the improvements will encourage other business owners to parlay the essence of their businesses into beautification projects that will help make Sooke easier on the eye.

    Theres been really

    good precedence set by other business owners, Michael said. It would be nice to see others following suit.

    The $25,000 project has been in the making for the past two years, since Michael and wife, Susan Nyikes, obtained the restaurant from its original owners.

    When weve travelled and weve been to special cafes all over the world, our greatest pleasure has come from typically sitting in a courtyard outside, she said.

    We just think were going to be able to duplicate what youre able to experience in different parts of the world. Were just really excited to have that here.

    And, as local business owners themselves, the Nyikes have sourced all labour, design work and materials locally. The only item coming from outside of

    Sooke is the fountain. Were very, very

    strong advocates of not only local shopping, but of supporting local business, Nyikes said. It makes sense to us, we know that everyone benefits from it.

    The new outdoor seating area is expected to be completed in about a weeks time.

    HELPING PEOPLE LIVE BETTER LIVES

    Cedar Grove Centre 250-642-2226

    S U N S C R E E N S The SPF on sunscreen stands forSun Protection Factor. The SPF value gives you a guide on how long you can stay in the sun without burning. For example, if you burn in 10 minutes without sunscreen and you apply a sunscreen with a SPF number of 15 , you should be protected for up to 150 minutes. Sunscreens with SPF numbers higher than 15 work better for people who are fair-skinned, or work or play outdoors much of the day. Swimming and precipitation reduces the actual SPF value of many sunscreens... even those that are water resistant, so you have to reapply the product often. Make sure to shake the bottle before use and to apply at least 30 minutes before sun exposure.

  • Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

    Seamus OReilly, commonly seen busking in front of the BC Liquor Store in Evergreen Centre, is bringing old-time folk favourites and a touch of the Irish to Sooke.

    The 64-year-old cov-ers a variety of differ-ent artists like Van Mor-rison, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, in addi-tion to traditional Irish songs that stretch back hundreds of years.

    Arriving in Sooke in early March after spending the winter in Charlottetown, Nova Scotia and Vancouver, OReilly stated local res-idents have been gener-ous and welcoming.

    I find that Sooke is very supportive... the people of Sooke really like what Im doing here.

    On his mandolin, which is a custom-made Gibson replica by a Saskatchewan luthier, he craftily picks and strums while singing

    songs reminiscent to listeners. He also plays the tin whistle, a record-er-like instrument made of brass tubing.

    He said his purpose is to provide an enlight-ening experience to passers-by heading in and out of the liquor store something that isnt achieved by bubble gum music

    on the radio today. Im talking about

    music that elevates people into another dimension. Theyre brought into an awak-ening where they real-ize, Oh geez, what am I doing with my life? I should do something else, OReilly laughed.

    You can bring back the sense of wonder

    into people because theyve lost it.

    Because one of the best parts of his job is interacting with peo-ple, OReilly has also introduced magic into his repertoire for kids.

    Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, OReilly began his excursion into music with a banjo-madolin at nine years old in his schools orchestra class.

    OReilly recalls sitting on a long wooden bench in a room of about 15 kids, who followed tunes and notes on a long scroll canvas in front of the classroom.

    You could sit back in your seats and every-one would be looking at this tune hanging, instead of everyone having a piece of paper in front of them and not looking up... it was a really neat way of teach-ing music, he said.

    When the orchestra disbanded, OReilly retired from music until he was 18 years old, which was the same time as the folk music

    revival in the late 60s. Restless and longing

    for adventure, OReilly left for Canada two years later, where he remembers playing Irish songs throughout the night when homesick.

    Being away from home, I would play a lot of Irish music, he said. Id rent a room and then Id be sitting around at night listen-ing to music, playing music and thats when I got really into it, when I was on my own.

    After playing instru-mental Irish music for years, OReilly began doing covers of some of his favourite artists with the intention to sing.

    With music now ingrained in his bones, OReilly sees himself playing until the end of his days.

    I am a musician you see. If I dont play music now till I die, Ill be kicking myself when Im on my death bed, he said. Im probably a musician over and over and over lives.

    A Sooke woman beat the odds of 1 in 650,000 when she was dealt a perfect hand in a team cribbage game at the Sooke Legion on Aug. 2.

    Perfect-hand winner, Roberta Davies, said she was stunned when she learned she possessed the rare 29-hand -- three five cards and one jack in your hand plus a fourth five in match-ing suit with the jack turned up on the deck when cut.

    When ever yone yelled, Roberta got a

    29-hand, I thought Wow, that must be something

    really special, she said. Although Davies did not

    realize the rarity of her hand, her fellow players in the four person game did.

    This is the first time Ive ever dealt a 29 and been involved with a 29-hand, said game participant, Lee Drover.

    Having played crib-bage for over 60 years, Drover said he has never encountered the rare feat.

    Similarly, Davies, who has been playing cribbage for over 50 years, said she has never seen, let alone been dealt, the highest scoring, perfect hand.

    I wish it had been a lotto, that wouldve been neat.

  • My only memory of the Maquinna, the legendary good ship Princess Maquinna that served as a lifeline for Vancouver Islands west coast, was in 1950, when I waved to friends on board as the vessel sailed from the CPR dock in Victoria. Engines throbbing, the ship set off in the dark-ness to serve the log-ging camps and canner-ies of the coast.

    The ship sailed at 11 p.m., heading for Port Renfrew, the first of its many stops at small ports on its journey northward to Port Alice. Carrying passengers and cargo, the ships arrival at each stop brought out the villag-ers in greeting, as they looked forward to news from the outside world. Records tell us that the ship made three trips a month, and in the bus-ier summer season, its workload was aided by the Princess Norah.

    The ship was part of the Canadian Pacific Railways Princess fleet, pocket liners that provided many of the amenities of ocean liners but on a lesser

    scale. With their white linen tablecloths and gleaming silver, these steamships introduced just a touch of luxury to many whose lives were restricted to the limited comforts of camp life.

    Captain Edward Gil-lam was master of the vessel for many years. His skill at navigat-ing through dense fog, bringing the sturdy dou-ble-bottomed vessel safely through the gales of the storm-lashed shores, the graveyard of the Pacific, has earned him a special place in the annals of the west coast of Van-

    couver Island.Named for the daugh-

    ter of famous Chief Maquinna, the ves-sel was part of a fleet of more than a dozen Princess liners. Built in 1913 at BC Marine Rail-way Companys yard in Esquimalt (later to become Yarrows Ltd.) the vessel brought a welcome beacon to the west coast until 1952. By that time logging roads and rail connec-tions had networked access to remote vil-lages on the island, reducing the need for marine routes.

    Among those

    onboard to enjoy the last sailing of the

    Maquinna were Fred and Elsie Thornber, a Sooke business family. Jim and Elsie Arden, who were running a logging outfit based at the settlement of Nah-mint, recall waving to them as the ship sailed by. As a glorious part of our island history ended, it is a bit sad to note that the good ship was converted in 1953 to serve as the barge Taku.

    Celebrate local art ... in the parkBrittany LeeSooke News Mirror

    The big white tents are the visual signal that Art in the Park is once again happening in Ed Macgregor Park.

    Sooke residents are gearing up for a day in the park in cel-ebration of local art.

    The 10th annual Art in the Park festi-val, taking place at Ed Macgregor Park on Aug. 18 to 19, features a large line-up of local artists, vendors, music, and entertainment.

    Weve upped the entertainment (this year), Marion Des-Rochers, treasurer of the Sooke Community Arts Council, says.

    But other than an expanded list of per-formers, theres not a huge amount of change, she adds.

    The annual event, put on by the Sooke Community Arts Coun-cil, aims to promote art in the community.

    Members of the public can browse for paintings, pottery, jew-elry, photography, and other arts and crafts.

    Its truly a family affair, DesRochers says. Its just an enjoyable family day.

    The festival includes childrens activities, live music, and entertainment.

    P e r f o r m a n c e s

    include Steve Anderson from the Sooke Harbour Players, with his daugh-ters, making up The Rock Society; Salvatore Sam Pasta Barber Shop Quartet; Dorothy Cline from the Sooke Folk Society, a belly dance display; and shows by the Sooke Dance Studio.

    All of the entertain-ers have a local Sooke connection, notes Car-ole Cave, vice presi-dent of the arts council.

    Whats really nice about having local tal-ent is it brings in more local people, she says.

    Cave encourages people to come out

    and enjoy the art, music, and dancing.

    Its just great, she says. A good way to spend a day.

    Art in the Park runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday (Aug. 18) and Sunday (Aug. 19) at Ed Macgregor Park, 6751 West Coast Road in Sooke.

    Heres a summer scene being played out all over North America. Family van pulls up to the corner store to stock up on a few camping essentials: pop, chips, hot dogs, a case of beer and a bottle of vodka.

    Not in B.C. you say? It happens every day at rural agency liquor stores around the province. As with many other issues, there is one real-ity for urban B.C. and another for the rest of us. Selling booze in grocery stores would presumably create anar-chy in B.C cities and towns, but villag-ers and their visitors somehow man-age it, just as everyone does across the line in Washington or Alaska.

    These rural agency stores are flyspeck operators, sniffs an acquaintance who spent his career as a union activist in government liquor stores. Picture dusty old bot-tles on a rickety shelf, greedy own-ers and poorly trained clerks more likely to sell to under-age drinkers.

    Similar generalizations can be heard about the hundreds of private liquor stores that have popped up around B.C. since they were legal-ized. And in fact there have been more violations in private stores, revealed in sting operations run by liquor inspectors. In the year ended March 31, 54 private stores were caught selling to a minor, for an 84 per cent compliance rate. Only four gov-ernment stores were caught, a pass

    rate of 96 per cent. Five rural agency stores were tested, and one flunked.

    But here is the telling statistic. In 2010, the government allowed liquor inspectors to employ actual minors to test stores. Previously, they hired people who looked young but were old enough to buy alcohol, As late as 2009, two out of three stores (government or otherwise) sold to them. Prob-lem is, thats not an actual offence.

    Now liquor inspectors send in undercover teens, and relieve them of the evidence when they are allowed to buy booze. The watchdog now has teeth, and compliance has jumped.

    The government glossed over the poorer performance of private stores. But in fairness, three times as many private stores as government ones were targeted in the new inspec-tions, and the gap is narrow. Govern-ment stores also have a huge built-in financial advantage in their whole-sale rate, and are generally over-staffed by private sector standards.

    The B.C. Liberals also moved this spring to make rural agency stores easier to establish. Regula-tion changes brought the minimum population served from 300 down to 200, and eliminated a vague requirement for a bona fide com-munity to exist around the store.

    Meanwhile, the big booze story this year is cabinet minister Rich

    Colemans plan to sell B.C.s ware-house and distribution monopoly to a private contractor. The B.C. Government Employees Union has protested, despite assurances that their jobs will continue. B.C.s burgeoning craft beer industry has looked to Albertas all-private model and predicts higher costs.

    The B.C. Liberal government has been on the defensive from the start, with the NDP pointing to the paper trail of lobbyists with an apparent inside track. Its great politics, but it matters little to con-sumers in an increasingly competi-tive but heavily taxed business.

    Another new regulation took effect this summer, creating a $525 fine for adults serving minors, on the job, at home or as a bootlegger. Parents who provide booze for their own under-age children are exempted. Previously, penalties applied only to licensed establishments.

    If the issue really is public safety and teen binge drinking, the key job for government is to regu-late sales effectively. Once that is done, no justification remains for government liquor sales.

    B.C. liquor laws finally effective

    They left quite the legacy

    OUR VIEW

    Departed Chief Administrative Officer Evan Parliament and ex-Mayor Janet Evans left quite a trail of controversy at the municipal hall.

    Local residents are wanting to launch their boats for free, bus stop benches and garbage containers are costing the municipality a small fortune and no one is happy with the parking situation at the Prestige Hotel. It seems contracts were signed, promises made and deals struck without the apparent knowledge of all of council. Now council and staff have the unpleasant task

    of trying to unravel the mess and see where the district actually stands. Taxpayers will have to bear the brunt of the legal fees until things are sorted out.

    Quite the legacy left by the newly departed. This

    is edifice building at its ultimate. Egos were stroked and deals struck with little thought as to the outcome for the tax paying public. Perhaps they thought they were doing us all a favour, and some may think so, but it is costing us a bundle to ensure the hotel succeeds. A hotel is definitely important to Sooke, theres no doubt about that, but as has been stated in these pages many times, at what cost? The boat launch is important as well but it appears the district is hog tied into some easement agreements and contracts which favour the hotel and not the municipality.

    Unravelling the mess wont be easy and it will be costly, but once we are on firm ground, we can move forward and let the past go. The district did the right thing by severing the employment relationship with Mr. Parliament, and the voters did the right thing in electing a mayor and council who care about the bottom line.

    Unravelling the mess wont be easy...

Mr. Andersons comment in his letter to the editor leads me to believe his comments are based on what he heard on the streets and not from what he heard by being in attendance at the July 23 council meeting.

    Frederique Philip has and will remain a steward in tourism, and promotion of the Sooke area.

    Noted in the exact same newspaper, Tourism Association is funded by more than one source Juan de Fuca Electoral Area Director Mike Hicks stated by email that the Juan de Fuca was a founding member of SRTA and had contrib-uted $7,000 per year to the association, amounting to one third of the Sooke contribu-tion which we thought was appropriate. Is Councillor Kasper ignoring the facts or is he just ignorant of the facts?

    My point here is that the District of Sooke is not the only body con-tributing to the Sooke Region Tourism Asso-ciation.

    The Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce originally signed a ser-vice agreement with the District of Sooke on Oct. 31, 2006 and the second agreement April 14, 2009 for Economic Development Ser-vices. Since the origi-nal service agreement, the duties and tasks of the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce has increased. Your term public hand-outs should be investi-gated, in my opinion is perhaps a result of your lack of knowledge on what the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce does in our commu-nity.

    Coun. Kaspers com-ment made at the July 23 meeting that the chamber did more in the past is perhaps his perception. Does Kasper have concrete evidence of his state-ment?

    Coun. Kasper used a measured and abra-sive tone throughout his critique of our draft service agreement, and this tone continued throughout discus-sion of the chambers service agreement. My response to Kasper was that of being on the receiving end of an abrasive tone and some who believes incorrect statements are fact.

    The Sooke Region Chamber in the past year has increased membership from 140 to 196 members, cre-ated and hosted events,

    continued to work with district staff to host events and promotion of the Sooke Region,

    The variety and scope of the Chamber of Commerce is unlim-ited. Chambers of Com-merce are increasingly involved in more and more non-commercial areas of community such as educational, human relations, envi-ronmental, cultural and governmental concerns. We have always had a commu-nity approach on any of the events and activi-ties we have hosted. All community members are welcome to our annual golf tournament, the Santa Parade, our awards events, mixers, educational seminars and events.

    The Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business - a cata-lyst - a common vehi-cle enlightening mem-bers from the business community to work together to increase business (commerce).

    Our office has an open door policy. Please stop by if you have any questions about our chamber.

    Kari OsseltonSooke

    Open letter to Coun. Haldane

    I was not rude or impolite at all, I was just stating as a citizen

    present at a council meeting that what Mr. Kasper said in regards to the Sooke Chamber of Commerce was not true, his facts were incorrect and what he said (in a fairly aggres-sive tone actually) was incorrect. As a citizen of Sooke I am allowed to express my opin-ion and not be bullied by elected officials to not use my right to freedom of speech!

    Mr. Kasper has never contacted me person-ally yet, I dont believe I was rude at all and I want to say again I have the right to attend council meet-ings and express my opinion when I hear inaccurate facts.

    I have witnessed many times the impo-liteness and rudeness of Mr. Kasper in past council meetings espe-cially directed towards the District of Sookes staff, I dont think I need to apologize for something I didnt do. I really do not like being threatened either in making me believe that if I dont apologize bad things may happen. I will have the right to seek legal council as I think my citizens rights are being challenged.

    I dont want per-sonal recognition as I already have it through our business; I sent the emails about the recognition the Sooke Harbour House has received to make some of you aware that this

    contribution brings economic develop-ment to Sooke, which I dont think some of you seem to be aware of. I have never used this and have never asked for any favour. I actu-ally think that I was, for the most part, always treated very badly by the municipality of Sooke and never ever received any favours, on the contrary and quite opposite to what other businesses have received. i.e the Pres-tige hotel. Do we want to dig deeper there?

    The District of Sooke has more important matters to look after than this. I just want to point out how inter-esting it is to see an elected member of the Sooke municipal-ity wanting to take aim against me as a citizen that has always in the past 33 years done her best to promote Sooke, to help the community of Sooke grow more wealthy and healthy.

    It is very sad to witness pettiness!

    Frederique Philip Sooke

  • No one acted alone

    Now that Evan Parlia-ment has resigned as CAO, is it appropriate for the citizens of Sooke to sit back, breathe a sigh of relief, and declare all is right with the world? Evan Parlia-ment was not the prob-lem. He was a symptom of the problem. Since incorporation, Sooke has travelled like a ship without a master, with a crew that at times oper-ates without adequate direction, and at other times, with an agenda foist upon them by elected and unelected persons.

    Anyone who thinks that Evan Parliament acted on his own, and that no blame attaches elsewhere, should give their head a shake. The most trusted posi-tion in our hallowed halls is that of Director of Finance. It appears when one searches the records, that former Director of Finance, Dave Devana, was com-plicit with Evan Parlia-ment in a scheme to finance their trip to China, using the District

    of Sooke Visa cards, cre-ating an account receiv-able in each name, and paying the debt over a number of months, in effect using the taxpay-ers of Sooke as bank-ers for their caper.

    Records clearly show that in July of 2009, both Parliament and Devana used DOS credit cards to forward $2,182.49 each, to the group in San Jose, who were the trip organizers. The use of DOS credit cards for personal expenditures is not allowed. This trip was not a business venture, but billed as a holiday. There is no record of any approval by the council of the day, for these two to set up an account, use the district funds to bank-roll their trip, and pay the monies back over a period of months. It always comes down to the same ques-tions: Who knew? What did they know? When did they know it?

    There is no doubt that governance in Sooke is in disarray. It is hard to do an exact count, but staff turn-over in this town is

    astounding. We will now be hiring our third CAO. We have had four Directors of Finance, and have just appointed our fifth. We have had at least five Directors of Engineering, and so many Directors of Plan-ning it is impossible to count. The end result is an endless number of studies, plans, consul-tants reports, etc., gath-ering dust on shelves. There are untold dollars involved in these docu-ments, and there is no doubt that under proper direction, our own resi-dents could have done the job as volunteers, and done it with our community in mind.

    Our town is broken and there is enough blame to go around. Some of it belongs to those of us who go to the ballot box and leave our brains at home. Some of it belongs to those who sit at the council table and vote without understand-ing the issues, or vote to satisfy a personal agenda, rather than consider the good of the community.

    Without a doubt,

    much of it belongs to those who have done the hiring. It is not pos-sible to hire efficiently, unless one understands the requirements of the position and how munic-ipalities should work.

    Gail HallSooke

    Defending the chamber

    Frederique Philip is a person to be respected, not just given lip service to. It doesnt work. Mem-bers of council must be prepared to hear and accept harsh dialogue. Talk all you want yet be prepared to listen as well. And, not just to the people who you like and who like you.

    F r e d e r i q u e announced herself as speaking personally for herself to council. I understand she reacted to a statement by say-ing Youre lying, at council. I have person-ally heard far more intense degradations

    from Councillor Kasper and Councillor Hal-dane, whose recent let-ter of the Chamber you need to work on your presentation. As you can see, Im work-ing on my own deliv-ery. Coun. Haldane this statement actu-ally was quite decent.

    I do hope that new is always respected. Things do not have to be known to be respected.

    This councils version of settling in, is far more intense than what I feel is currently considered

    standard municipal governmental phas-ing in. So Intense gives, Intense gets.

    Kari Osselton is doing more in an orga-nized manner than would normally happen with just volunteers. I say this as a dedicated volunteer and a mem-ber of the chamber. You can only see what she does and the true direc-tion of our chamber by looking at it up close, not third party. Cham-bers of Commerce and municipalities are con-nected internationally. Councillors, please sup-port us and attend our meetings, as do council-lors in many towns and ridings elsewhere. Pub-lic money is absolutely relative to commercial activities and comes from these activities.

    I do not see clubs like the Sooke Rotary and the Sooke Lions involving themselves in the way you mention relative to any com-mercial profit-based societal enterprises, even though the cham-ber itself is non-profit.

    And a final obser-vation about fiscal clarity and transpar-ency: Please note that

    grants in our commu-nity derive in large part from money that people spend at the View Royal Casino, not taxes collected in Sooke. Its an important distinction that might help people like Mr. Anderson sleep more comfortably at night.

    Encourage tourism

    Before the Mr. McDannolds of the world clench their fists in frustration at the tri-athlon induced road closures and the gen-eral inappropriateness of hosting an event of this nature, maybe we should think about how appropriate it can be.

    It is appropriate to encourage out-of-town-ers to visit our area to boost our local econ-omy (albeit briefly) and encourage local business development.

    It is appropriate to be good hosts so they can tell their friends

    that the Juan de Fuca coast is an exceptional place to visit with a great community spirit.

    It is appropriate to expose our commu-nity and our children to the benefits of par-ticipation in sport and encourage ourselves to be ambassadors for others in achiev-ing their endeavours.

    Maybe it is inappro-priate to close a high-way for a few hours on a Sunday morning, but with open communica-tion, transparent deci-sion making and collec-tive good-will, we can embrace future events in the most appro-priate way possible.

    Thanks for those who volunteered and others who made this event happen.

    Against charging a public boat launch fee

    I am very much

    opposed to the charge for using the public boat launch. It was my understanding that it was supposed to be a free public boat launch for the citizens of Sooke and as a taxpayer, I have (and will con-tinue) to pay to have access to this facil-ity through taxation.

    The solution to this problem is simple, if you are a tax paying resident of Sooke, you get a vehicle decal and access to the free launch. If you are not a tax paying resident of Sooke, you are charged the launch fee. Decals can be applied for and issued annually at the municipal hall.

    At the July council meeting it was moved and seconded that Jocks Dock be given temporay operation of the dock and an amendment to the fees bylaw to charge $10 a boat launch. Who gets the money?

    I hope every resi-dent of Sooke stands up and complains about this injustice!

    Many of us remember the days of the Apollo space missions. Younger people will have watched the movie Apollo 13 and

    been challenged by the tense situation that developed during that mission. On Day Six of the ill-fated journey of Apollo 13, the astronauts needed to make a critical course correction. If they failed, they might never return to earth. To conserve power, the onboard computer that steered the craft had been shut down. Yet the astronauts needed to conduct a thirty-nine-second burn of the main engines. How would they be able to steer without the navigation computer?

    Astronaut Jim Lovell determined that if they could keep a xed point in space in view through their tiny window, they could steer the craft manually. That focal point turned out to be their destination - Earth. For thirty-nine agonizing seconds, Lovell focussed on keeping the Earth in view. By not losing sight of that reference point, the three astronauts avoided disaster.

    The Bible reminds us that to nish our life mission successfully, we need to "Fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith". How do we do that? Reading his story is a great start and then linking up with others on the same journey can make a huge difference in our lives. This Fall check out a church in our community where you can Come as you are and continue to grow.

    The 25th Sooke Fine Arts Show opened on Thursday night with purchasers waiting in line to get into the show and see the latest works from the 275 artists who submitted entries.

    The adjudicators chose 375 pieces from the 551 art-ists who responded to the call for entries to the juried art show and sale.

    The 10-day show was once again staged in the SEA-PARC Leisure Complex where a group of talented and hard working volunteers transformed the cavernous space into an amazing gallery.

    We had a lovely weekend and a lot of people, said Sally Manning, show coordinator. It is a colourful and happy show.

    Many Sooke artists stood out as the winners in the 25th Anniversary Artists Awards. They included Pat-rick Irwin for his acrylic and oil two-dimensional paint-ing Port Alberni, Best Two-Dimensional work.

    The Best Three-Dimensional work award was awarded to Jan Johnson for his Minotaur Overseeing Intake, while Debbie Clarkson took the award for the Best Photography for her La Habana Elegante #3. Dana Sitars When I Do Not Follow the Rules took the award for Best Fibre. Honourable mentions were given to Chuck Minten for his Circle of Friends wood table and Anne Boquists YoYoTokTik gourd and found object piece.

    Other winners include Heather Hamiltons Internal Reflections pendant (Best Jewellery); Jo Ludwigs No Title glass piece (Best Glass); Metchosins Judi Dyelle won Best Ceramic for her White Series #1; and Jeff Molloy for his mixed media piece A Man of the Cloth.

    Other honourable mentions went to Debbie Jansen for her fused glass, Untitled, Eliza Heminways fibre wall piece, The Haberdashers Garden and Leonard Butts Uchi raku sculpture.

    The adjudicators each chose a work for Jurors Choice. Richard White gave full marks to Nicolas Van-dergugtens lino block print Bridgework #3; Grant Leier (substituting for Carol Sabiston) awarded Dee de Wits Still Life with Mango his kudos; and juror Nixie Barton chose Johannes Landmans oil painting Benchwarmer.

    Manning said the attendance was keeping in line with past years as were the sales.

    The Sooke FolkMusic Society normally cur-tails its activities for the summer, but thisSaturday, July 30, we are delighted to bringback Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart for a spe-cial summer concert at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, as part of their Driver til she dropstour; a reference to their Chevy Suburban,which now has some 465,000 miles on theodometer

    Stacey Earle andMark Stuart met for the first time 1991 ata songwriters night in Nashville TN. Theyknew that night it was one of them things thatare just meant to be. They were married in 1992.

    It would be quite a balancing act at that time raising a family and trying to make a living along with all theother stuff that came with getting by, but wemanaged, Stacey said as she looked back ather first encounter with the world of touring.

    Stacey Earles first show was on an arena stage in Sydney, play-ing rhythm guitar in her brothers band, Steve Earle & the Dukes.

    She spent about a year and a half on tour with her brother, and then returned to Nash-ville to start a career of her own as a country/folk singer/songwriter.

    I was 30-years-old and asking/seeking a recording deal in Nash-ville.At that age it was like asking God to turn back the world clock.

    Mark Stuart went to the finest of music schools, he started his schooling listening and admiring his uncles guitar playing and his dads fiddling. By age 15 he would find himself

    playing in the school ofhonky tonks and beer joints in and around Nashville in his dads band.

    Mark was off the road when he met Sta-cey and that very night he would play the firstnote of her music never leaving her side. Mark

    still somehow foundthe time to work on his own music record-ing his solo record and touring.

    Mark, as well, spent some time in the Dukes in the 1990s. Like Earle, he recalls it as a time ofglamour: appearing on the Tonight Show with

    Jay Leno, and MTV. I had someone tun-

    ing my guitar, strappingon my guitar, he said. Now we carry our stuff three flights up in the Red Roof Inn.

    Over the years Sta-cey and Mark havelearned so much from each other. Their songs are the diaries of their life good times andbad, thereby complet-ing the love they have.Together they share the full load of gettingby day-by-day.

    Theyve gone onto release their duo albums, Never GonnaLet You Go in 2003 and S&M CommunionBread in 2005, and their Gearle Records 2008release Love from Sta-cey and Mark which is available at thehir live shows only.

    While, no doubt, each still remains an individual solo artist with solo releases, suchas the 2008 release of Mark Stuarts Left of

    Nashville and Stacey Earles The Ride also in 2008), it is throughthe respect of each oth-ers work and years ofplaying together that they have created theirunique sound. And that sound allows each indi-vidual to shine through. Stacey and Mark are no doubt together til death do they part.

    Please be sure to join us for what will bea memorable evening with these two very engaging singer/song-writers.

    The gig is on Satur-day, July 30 at Holy Trin-ity Anglican Church, at 1962 Murray Road.Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with show at 8. Ticketsare $15 and are avail-able at the door or in advance at Shoppers Drug Mart.

    LOOKING BACKA trip through

    the Sooke News Mir-ror time machine:

    Aug. 12, 1987A u t h o r i z a t i o n

    mailed to huntersLimited Entry Hunt-

    ing authorizations have been mailed to hunters whose appli-cations were selected in the random draw held on June 25.

    The Limited Entry system is used to con-trol the number of hunters authorized to hunt in a particular area during a certain period of time for a par-ticular type of animal. It limits the total number of animals the hunters may harvest and the kinds of animals, in terms of age and sex,

    that they may take. There are 610 Limited

    Entry hunts this season, involving eight species of animals in 50 areas.

    Aug. 14, 1991Director lambasts

    Blackstone sewage disposal on Bluffs

    A proposal by a Vic-toria developer to cre-ate a tile field above the Sooke Bluffs to handle sewage from a 52-house subdivision was lam-basted by Regional Director Lorna Barry at last weeks meet-ing of the CRDs envi-ronmental committee.

    She said that the location of the pro-posed tile field so close to the Bluffs could trigger landslides and

    malodorous drainage on the beach. This is a risk that Sooke peo-ple will not tolerate.

    Ms. Barry charged as irresponsible, any suggestion that there would be no problems

    caused by a massive tile field located near to the edge of such bluffs.

    It is even more uncertain to count on such a treatment plant left to strata council by a developer long gone.

    Aug. 15, 2001 CRD report calls

    for electoral area a m a l g a m a t i o n

    Consultant Ben Marr presented his long-an-ticipated report to the Capital Regional Dis-trict on Aug. 8, outlining solutions to the ongo-ing governing problems of the Juan de Fuca electoral area in the first step to changing the CRDs control in the region around Sooke.

    The CRD board mem-bers and public audi-ence may have had their differences, but they all agreed on one thing -- things cannot remain the way they are. The word dysfunctional seemed to be the favou-rite word to describe

    the current situation.So in a rare moment

    of consensus, Marrs four strategies to dis-mantle the Juan de Fuca electoral area and either amalgamate or create new munici-palities was met with cautious approval by nearly everyone.

    Everyone in the room already knew everything in the report, said electoral area director, Brian Henson, who never-the-less thinks the report has some good long-term solutions.

    Aug. 11, 2010 Old-growth grove

    could fall under the axeIt appears immi-

    nent that another round of environmen-

    tal protests will likely come out of the pro-vincial governments June 30th announce-ment of the protec-tion of 29,000 hectares of old-growth forest on Vancouver Island.

    Already environmen-tal activists such as the Ancient Forest Alliance and the Forest Action Network, are calling for further protection for the area known as Avatar Grove, named for the biggest and gnarliest trees in a grove at Baird Creek.

    Baird Creek lies just inside the western boundary of the Capi-tal Regional District on the traditional territory of the Pacheedaht First Nation in Port Renfrew.

    Community comes out to support triathlon

    Sharron Ho photos

    The Subaru Sooke Triathlon, which took place last Sunday, was a huge success, according to race director, Matt Mortenson. To see so many community members come together from Shirley, Jordan River, Otter Point and Sooke working for a common good... I dont even know how to summarize it, just elation, he said.The volunteers -- the competitors ranted and raved about them, he said, adding the competitors felt welcomed at every aid station, turn around and from every marshall.Mortenson said the volunteers represented the community spirit of Sooke, stating a woman even gave up her shoes to a triathlete. There was a competitor who forgot her shoes, so I think she mustve done several kilometres in stocking feet and one of the volunteers saw that and she took her shoes off her own feet and gave them to her. (Clockwise) Arran Wass-Little hands water to a triathlete leaving Whiffin Spit. Sooke Lions, John Farmer, left, and Dave Nash, prepare a pancake breakfast for athletes, volunteers and spectators. Triathlete darts off after passing through a water station on West Coast Road. Ryan Pfieffer, 6, provided encouragement to triathletes coming and going from Whiffin Spit with rapid fire high fives. Crowds packed the triathlon site at John Phillips Memorial Park.

    The Rainbow BridgeA Visit to Pet ParadiseA u t h o r :

    Adrian Raeside32 pages, softcoverHarbour Publishing

    If you have ever needed to tell a child about the death of their pet, The Rainbow Bridge is a gentle way to introduce the subject to a young child. Seven-year-old Rick goes on a journey to a magical paradise where all the pets are happy and healthy. Its the perfect little childrens book suitable for a sad occa-sion with promise at the

    end. It may even bring a tear to an adults eye.

    The Uchuck YearsA West Coast

    Shipping SagaAuthor: David

    Esson Young302 pages, softcoverHarbour Publishing

    David Esson Young takes a potentially boring subject and gives it the necessary vibrancy and per-sonal tales to make shipping on the West Coast seem like a romantic occupation.

    He outlines his own history with a series of vessels, all named Uchuck, and the lifeline they provi-ded for the residents living in the isolated places on the coast of British Columbia.

    Black and white pho-tographs add to the his-tory of this most cru-cial service provided to the coastal commu-nities where loggers, fishermen and miners lived and toiled. Geni-uses and dreamers, bosses and good old boys and the women who loved them are included on the pages

    It is a way of life that is quickly disappea-ring on the coast, and Young writes with reve-rence and respect for the ships and the men who worked on them. He tells the tales with a keen eye and a vivid memory, making the his-tory come alive. This is the way history should be presented, with inte-rest, passion and fact.

    Secret Lakes of South-ern Vancouver Island

    A u t h o r : Adam Ungstad

    150 pages, softcoverUngstad Infor-

    mation Architects

    All around Vancou-ver Island one is always aware of the ocean. Hidden and often well kept local secrets are the freshwater lakes

    that abound in the area.Stretching from Otter

    Point to up the Mala-hat, Ungstad leads you to the best lakes and beaches. He lets you know where you can swim, hike or fish or find the best places to soak up the sunshine or walk your dog.

    Maps and directions to each of 25 lakes are contained in the book. The author pro-

    vides some historical content and points of interest. He tells you which lakes are stocked with trout and where to have a picnic.

    Did you know that Peden Lake was named after the Peden family who owned a feed store on Wharf Street in Victoria in the 1900s?

    Did you know that Sheilds Lake once was

    the site of a wilder-ness retreat and had a two-storey lodge?

    The book is well-or-ganized with tabs for each of the particular areas. Its an excel-lent reference book to those who may not know where the locals go to recreate. For more information on this publication, go to www.secretlakes.ca.

    The length of your arm, from your wrist to your elbow, is the same size as your foot.

    Thats one of the strange, but true, facts kids learned during the Slimy Science Fun program at the Sooke library branch last Wednesday (Aug. 8).

    More than a dozen children sat in a cir-cle in the youth area, intently watching and listening as Adrienne Wass, library manager of the Sooke and Port Renfrew branches, lead the group though fascinating sci-ence experiments.

    The kids, aged six to nine, learned how to make fake blood, slime, and fake hairy moles.

    This is just some of the fun going on at the Vancouver Island Regional Library this summer, as part of the Strange... But True? summer reading club.

    The province-wide program, sponsored by the British Colum-bia Library Associa-tion, aims to encour-age elementary school-aged children to con-tinue reading through-out the summer.

    They keep their read-ing skills up in the sum-mertime so that when they return to school in the fall, theyre not out of practice, Wass said. In fact, a lot of them have improved their reading skills (by Sep-tember), but it isnt a chore because theyre motivated to read.

    Children fill out a reading log and earn stickers for each panel they complete. They are also entered into weekly

    prize draws. At the end of the summer, children earn medals for com-pleting their booklet.

    Its all about keep-ing the kids moti-vated, having fun, and reading, Wass said.

    The Sooke library currently has about 180 kids registered in the program, the high-est amount of partici-pants theyve ever had, according to Wass.

    In the past five years, the amount of chil-dren joining the read-ing club has increased exponentially, she said.

    Its just been grow-ing year after year. As Sookes popula-tion grows, weve seen a real increase in kids programming and participation.

    Last years numbers ranged from 120 to 130 children, Wass noted.

    This years theme of Strange... But True? allows for plenty of fun.

    Its great because it gives us a lot of room to play, like science, or science magic, or dealing with fantastical creatures, Wass said.

    While kids can still sign-up for the read-ing club and continue reading to fill-up their booklets, a wrap-up party is planned for today (Aug. 15).

    The Summer Reading Club Wrap-up Party and Extreme Science Show includes cake, medals for those whove already filled their reading logs, and prize draws.

    Students from the

    University of Victo-rias Science Venture Big Kids will be put-ting on a free show of chemical reactions, electrifying demos, and bubbling fun.

    Registration is required for the event, which runs from 2 to 3 p.m. outside of the Sooke branch library, 2065 Anna Marie Road.

    To register, call 250-642-3022 by Wednesday morning.

    For more informa-tion about the sum-mer reading club, see www.kidssrc.ca.

    SingalongBrittany LeeSooke News Mirror

    Warm up your vocal chords and head over to the Reading Room Cafe.

    The Reading Room is hosting a community singalong with artists Jennifer Louise Taylor, Ken Hall, and Rose Bir-ney on Friday, Aug. 17.

    The musicians aim to share their love of music while building on the idea of a tradi-tional kitchen party.

    Our goal is to foster a musical experience where the audience become participants, in an informal setting where the focus is more on fun than your vocal range, Taylor said in a statement.

    The l ine-up includes well-known and newer songs by Canadian artists.

    This music is our oral history-in-the-mak-ing and its worth cel-ebrating, Taylor said.

    Kathe Drover, owner of Reading Room, said bringing the trio, who regularly performs in Victoria, to Sooke was in response to demand of patrons.

    The entertainers and very well known, Drover said. Theres a lot of demand in Sooke for musical events, peo-ple tend to enjoy them.

    The event is open to everyone, of all vocal abilities. Song sheets will be avail-able to the audience.

    The community sin-galong runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Read-ing Room Cafe in the Evergreen Centre (6660 Sooke Road). Tickets can be pur-chased at the cafe.

    Scouts open house

    Brittany LeeSooke News Mirror

    For more than 100 years, Scouts have vis-ited Camp Barnard to learn about the out-doors, build their con-fidence and leader-ship skills, and create lasting friendships.

    This weekend the camp is welcoming members of the public to its first open house on Saturday, Aug. 18.

    Scout leader Tara Munro encourages peo-ple to come out and see the beautiful camp.

    Not many people know about it, she said, adding that the 251-acre camp has plenty of activities to keep kids busy.

    Youth aged five to 17 can visit the camp, located along Young Lake, for activi-ties such as camping, canoeing, and archery.

    Its a beautiful place, she said. Kids can use it on week-ends and for camping.

    Camp Barnard recently welcomed four new leaders to their group of about 15.

    The idea for the open house came from a group of enthusiastic Scout leaders moti-vated to help the camp grow, Munro said.

    The free, family-friendly event includes a barbecue, swimming, canoeing, archery, a bouncy castle, and tours of the camp.

    If anyone is inter-ested in scouting, come check out the camp, Munro said.

    Her favourite part about being involved with Scouts is learn-ing about the local environment, the local resources, sur-vival skills, and working in teams.

    The open house runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Camp Barnard, 3202 Young Lake Road.

    To learn more about Scouts, or Camp Barnard, see www.v ictor iascouts .ca .

    Among the events include live enter-tainment and music, fire trucks on display and fire department themed events, water-melon eating contest, home-style food, local crafters and vendors, and closed bid auction.

    There will be a chil-drens games area, including traditional

    favourites like the Barbie dunk tank, tic-tac-toe, Lucky Ducky and Plinko.

    The day will be finished in the eve-ning with a salmon barbecue dinner.

    Its just a really fun, old-fashioned commu-nity day, said Fiona McDannold, of the Shir-ley Community Associa-tion, adding many mem-bers of the community pass by through the day.

    RIDING

    FOR MOMCharla HuberBlack Press

    Being a rider on the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock is a personal mission for West Shore RCMP Const. Harrison Teed.When he was 14 years old his mother was

    diagnosed with cancer. When I was so young I didnt know; I

    thought she was going to die, said Teed, adding his mother has been cancer-free for 11 years.

    It was tough for me to deal with this at 14, and now I try to picture myself (in the place of my mother) let alone two, three and five years dealing with this.

    More people are surviving from cancer than they were a decade ago and Teed credits that to the hard work of cancer researchers and fundraising efforts like the Tour de Rock.

    When he told his mother what he is training to do she was happy and proud of her son.

    While Teed enjoys cycling, gearing up for the tour is what has gotten him back on the bike.

    Its been probably over five years since Ive been on a bicycle, Teed said. Now he rides upwards of three days a week.

    Although its hard work riding and training, its absolutely nothing compared to what the kids are going though. Those are the ones who are suffering, Teed said.

    Teed has been with the West Shore RCMP detachment for four years. He grew up in Eastern Canada and his father was also in the RCMP.

  • and endured ele-ments like wind and sun for the event.

    According to a Sad-dle Club press release, dressage is the foun-dation of all horse riding disciplines.

    Most of the rides during the weekend show were the initial stages, which provide good rhythm and adjustability to horse gaits (movements).

    The release added dressage is the ideal starting discipline for other equestrian sports like jumping, cross country, western reining, western gain-ing and driving a cart.

    It truly is amazing how much direction can be provided to the horse with the riders weight shifting and subtle leg and hand/arm movements. If you watched or plan on watching dressage competitions, see if you can see the cue for the horse to turn, to adjust from a walk to a canter stride and back down again, to lengthen a trot stride and shorten it back, etc. It should be imperceptible at the upper levels.

    Judges discussed tests with each rider, indicating areas for improvement. The rider was then per-mitted about 10 min-utes to practice in the ring prior to the for-mal test. At the end of their sessions, riders took home two judged tests with comments, a little prize and ribbon.

    Overall, there were 39 sessions, each about 20 minutes in length.

    Participants, who ranged in age from six to 50, included usual dres-sage training students, and a few students from a local hunter/jumper barn, who stepped it down to keep the horses four legs closer to the ground for a few minutes.

    The event also saw four Para riders attend.

    We had four Para riders who came with their groom for the weekend our local BC Summer Games three bronze medalist Para rider Kim Scott (who has competed in pre-vious SSC dressage show and tells). And we had three eventers who came from Shawni-gan/Cobble Hill to take part in the show, stated the release.

    The dressage seg-

    ment in cross country is probably the most important phase. It really is what can make or break the ride for the eventers.

    Sooke Saddle Club

    members scored high points on Saturday, July 28, by junior, Ella Con-standinou, senior, Eve Ouradou and Para-rider senior, Janet Hall. On Sunday, July 29, senior

    rider Laura Kennelly also scored high points.

    Judging the show was esteemed judge, Sheila Skene. She is a medium dressage judge, and competes in dressage

    competitions with a Trakhener gelding.

    She has competed at FEI Prix St. George level.

    The Saddle Clubs next competition is the Fun Show on Aug. 25
