    Service agreements to be reviewed by finance committeePirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Tempers flared at the District of Sooke council meeting on Monday night in regard to council mak-ing the decision to look at the service agreements between the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce and the Sooke Region Tourism Association.

    Currently the chamber of commerce receives $28,150 from the district budget and the tourism association receives $20,000.

    Mayor Wendal Milne said he wanted to ensure that all of the grants handed out by the district were treated the same way.

    We want to make clear, well in advance, that here are the requirements, he said. He stated that some of the agreements were five-years in length while others were year-by-year.

    He said the district wants to provide sustainable fund-ing while keeping the entire budget in mind.

    The Finance and Adminis-tration Committee has, since the election, been reviewing all of the contracts the dis-trict is party to.

    Rick Kasper, chair of the Finance and Administration Committee felt there were items in the service agree-ment (Schedule A) with the chamber that were strictly for the benefit of the mem-bers and not the entire busi-ness community. He stated that when they first signed a service agreement with the

    chamber it was for a one-half time operation. The fee for service was established when the chamber opera-tion became full-time.

    He said he would support the agreement for this year only and the conditions would be looked at seri-ously.

    In regard to the Sooke Region Tourism Association Kasper stated that perhaps the District of Sooke should not be the only partner and the Juan de Fuca Electoral Area, which benefits from the associations efforts, should be a contributing partner as well.

    Councillor Maja Tait said the chamber does many things which benefit the entire community, such as the Santa Parade, Com-munities in Bloom and the light-up at Christmas. She said these were measure-able outcomes.

    Chamber manager Kari Osselton took offense at Kaspers comments and asked, If were not doing these things, who would be?

    Mayor Milne said the onus was on the district to establish what they want as far as agreements go.

    An angry Frederique Philip accused Kasper of lying and took the podium at the Committee of the Whole portion to outline how she has helped promote tour-ism and business in Sooke.

    You dont seem to under-stand what tourism does, she said to Kasper.

    Public boat launch to become fee-basedPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    In 2013 it will no longer be free to launch a boat at the public boat launch, opened earlier this year.

    At council on Monday, July 25, it was agreed that a $10 launch fee would be ini-tiated next year and a pro-posed $10 sani-dump fee would not be instituted.

    In a report to council,

    from staff, it said that com-mercial operations in Sooke are being impacted by the free launch, in particular Jocks Dock next to the hotel which offers boat launching for a fee.

    There was also an issue with users of the public boat launch who utilized water, washrooms, fish clean out stations, etc. at Jocks with-out any compensation.

    Mayor Wendal Milne said

    they would be taking some action to protect business, not compete with business in Sooke.

    Councillor Rick Kasper said it was never implied that the public boat launch would be free. He said in the 2009 grant application, fees were used as a measure-ment tool.

    In the interest of keeping the harbour clean, Milne said, I am personally not

    in favour of a big, or any, fee for the sani-dump.

    Issues of parking along West Coast Road came into focus as well, both for boat launchers and people who came to events at the hotel.

    Discussions will be held with the Ministry of Trans-port in regard to parking along the highway.

    Were a victim of our own success here, said Kasper.

    Chiasson preliminary hearing set

    for fallSharron HoSooke News Mirror

    A preliminary hear-ing to review evidence regarding the fatal West Coast Road accident has been set for Nov. 20 at Western Communi-ties court.

    The driver in the acci-dent, David Chiasson, 18, has been charged with dangerous driv-ing causing death, dan-gerous driving causing bodily harm, theft and possession of stolen property.

    At the preliminary hearing, the judge will determine whether the evidence presented is sufficient to stand trial.

    A plea has not yet been entered.

    The single-vehicle accident, involving a stolen vehicle, occurred on April 9 on the 7000-block of West Coast Rd. The vehicle lost control on the narrow roads gravel shoulder, ran into a power pole and flipped over into a ditch.

    The accident resulted in the death of 15-year-old Nicolas Nic Twiddy.

    Two other passen-gers, Steve Livingstone, 18, and Maria Forbes, 15, were also injured. Forbes was airlifted from the accident scene to hospital with serious head injuries.

    District responsible for exempted DCCs

    Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

    Council will be reviewing a bylaw that allows reductions in Development Cost Charges for develop-ments in Sookes town core.

    A consultant from Urban Systems, con-tracted to review road DCCs, recently told council they would be accountable for approximately $40,000 of exempted DCCs for Mariners Village.

    The reduction was permitted under the Sooke Revitaliza-tion Bylaw 408, which waives 30 per cent of DCCs on residential housing developments of 50 or greater units per hectare in the town core.

    Developments are also eligible for an additional 30 per cent reduction if they are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environ-mental Design) certi-fied -- which is granted to environmentally con-structed and operated buildings.

    The district is then financially responsible

    to replace the waived amounts into the DCC reserve fund.

    Places like Mariners Village met that require-ment, so their DCC could be reduced by 30 per cent, so they went ahead and took advan-tage and its no fault of their own, said Mayor Wendal Milne.

    What were going to be doing, very quickly, is reviewing this bylaw to see if in fact, it is something we want to continue to have, he said, adding the provi-sion maybe amended or rescinded completely.

    According to Milne, the bylaw was approved in 2010 by the previous council to encourage development in Sookes town core.

    Im not sure that the previous council under-stood that when they gave this exemption that they had to pony up the money into the reserve fund, he said.

    Bylaw 408 also pro-vides a 100 per cent DCC exemption for non-profit rental housing, supportive living hous-ing and for-profit afford-able rental housing.

    Bevers spent a year modifying the bike, shimmying down the panels, painting it black and adjusting the suspension.

    I adjusted it to suit me, he said. The motor, batteries and brakes are situated within the front wheel. The bicycle recharges when braking or going downhill.

    The idea of web casting council meet-ings is not a new idea at the municipal hall. The issue was bandied about and discussed during the budget delib-erations at the commit-tee level, said Mayor Wendal Milne.

    Its also not some-thing that is written in stone and destined to be a fixture at council chambers if it is not utilized by residents.

    People will be able to select a recording

    (video) of the meeting in conjunction with the agenda,said Milne.

    He said people would not have to sit through an entire council meet-ing to learn what hap-pened to a specific item on the agenda.

    Hot buttons would exist on the agenda posted on the District of Sooke website and a viewer could select which part of the coun-cil meeting they want to view.

    A tab button would go to the camera record-

    ing of the issue, Milne stated. We would hope for 50-100 hits a week,

    He said if there wasnt enough interest, they would look at the viability of the technol-ogy. The tech support from the streaming company is on a year-to-year basis and could be cancelled if the inter-est wasnt there.

    Milne stated the municipality of North Saanich did a lot of the legwork and an exhaus-tive review on web cast-ing with the provider,

    Granicus, and they went with a proven prod-uct. Sooke would enlist the same provider.

    On another topic, the renewed request to be a part of the Juno Awards bid came up. The bid committee, based out of Victoria, was seek-ing about $12,000 from Sooke to be a part of the festivities.

    Milne said the request was sent back to Finance and Admin-istration Committee but there was not a lot of enthusiasm.

    Two for one at SFA showSharron HoSooke News Mirror

    The Sooke Fine Arts show, which draws a plethora of tal-ented artists, has a team who work throughout the year to put on the massive event.

    Among the hardworking bunch are dynamic duo, Brit-ton Jacob-Schram and Cath-erine Keogan.

    The two young women were hired in October to share the position of administrative co-ordinator. A position that requires a multitude of skills and knowledge.

    Touching just the breadth of their position, the two women handle administrative work, write grants, respond to enquiries from sponsors and artists, do web design and provide support for the nearly 300 volunteers who put on the show.

    Theres no one hat to wear, said Keogan. Theres a lot to be done, and a lot of aspects of the show that need our help.

    Although the job can be demanding, with a workload that rises and falls, Keogan said its been a great experi-ence.

    I love it, this is a wholly positive work environment and we are working towards a very positive goal.

    Keogan arrived in Sooke, along with Jacob-Schram, last October after living in Costa Rica.

    Their relocation to Van-couver Islands west coast was all thanks to a simple wish list, depicting their ideal

    homestead. Items on the list included mild weather, close to the ocean, close to a big city, but not in one, a strong community feel, and marvel-lous wildlife and nature.

    And just as expected, Keo-gan is an artist in her own right, with her main medium being words. As an accomplished writer, Keogan has published a national best-seller on Costa

    Rican travel titled Pura Vida. She is also trilingual, having

    a grasp on English, French and Spanish.

    They are more than what I was hoping to get in this office, said show direc-tor, Sally Manning. They are exceptionally talented.

    The two women were hired on an eight month contract, which Manning now hopes to extend.

    We really, really are work-ing hard to keep them with us, she said. Were more than thrilled to have them here with us, they are just a godsend.

    The Sooke Fine Arts show, which is in its 26th year, will take place at the SEAPARC Lei-sure Complex from July 28 to Aug.6.

    The show features artists from Vancouver Island and B.C.s Coastal Islands, and has approximately 8,000 annual visitors who attend.

    This year, 1,335 arts works from 561 artists were sub-mitted, which was narrowed down to about 275 pieces for the show.

    A remarkable seafaring lifeSeafaring stories

    abound on the west coast of North America, but perhaps none are more remarkable than the life of mariner Cap-tain James Christensen. Born in Denmark in 1840, James Christens-ens west coast career began in 1864 when he arrived in the port of Victoria as bosun on the German vessel King Oscar. When the ship departed, Christensen did not.

    By 1868 Christensen was captain of the Sur-prise, a two-masted coastal schooner carry-ing trade items such as blankets and engaged in transporting Roman Catholic priests and supplies for missions. They sailed as far afield as the Sandwich Islands for molasses.

    The 55.5 foot Surprise was the first vessel to engage in the pelagic seal hunt. A year later, when he carried a con-tingent of Pacheedaht seal hunters, it was the success of those nimble men and their unerring aim that established the decades-long industry.

    On his 1869 journey north, he discovered the wreck of the British barque John Bright off Hesquiat, and brought to the attention of authorities the sad fate of the survivors. After several more seasons as master of trading schooners, Capt. Chris-tensen took a position as pilot, guiding sailing vessels into port. Mar-ried in Victoria, Chris-

    tensen raised two sons, seafarers as well. (After his time on the Surprise, that staunch little ves-sel was wrecked at Simpson Point across from Whiffin Spit.)

    After a few years piloting, Christensen took over the Hudsons Bay Companys legend-ary vessel Beaver for a decade before becom-ing master of the Dun-smuir ship Lorne. At 151 feet, the Lorne, part of the fleet of British Columbias coal baron James Dunsmuir, was recognized as the larg-est tug on the coast. One of the duties car-ried out by Capt. Chris-tensen was to meet sailing vessels at Cape

    Flattery and tow them through the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Strait of Georgia to Union Bay to load coal. He passed away in Victoria in 1927.

    Capt. Christensens tradition of seafaring was carried out by his sons, and his grandson William James followed suit as a marine engi-neer, and also served for a time in the Brit-ish Columbia Pro-vincial Police. Capt. James Christensens great-grandson Lorne expanded the family horizons once again, with a career in inter-national flights as a captain for Canadian Pacific Airlines.

    While many of us know our own Lorne Christensen as a com-munity businessman and contributing vol-unteer, perhaps most would not be aware that the name he bears with pride is a trea-sured family reminder of the legendary career of this remarkable sea-faring man.

    The Sooke Fall Fair Pet Parade will be cel-ebrating its 50th anni-versary this year on Sept. 9, under the fall fair theme, All Crea-tures Great and Small.

    Sooke woman, Pau-line Atterbury, started the pet parade in 1962 in order to include all children in Sooke Fall Fair festivities. At the time, children under the age of 12 did not qualify for the fairs junior section.

    According to her daughter Liana Malo-ney, Atterbury grew up in a modest house-hold, which led her to become empathic to families and people who didnt have means.

    She wanted some-thing accessible to all kids so no child would be excluded. She made it so it would be abso-lutely free, Maloney said. The no registra-tion fee tradition has continued until this day.

    Since Atterbury passed away over a decade ago, her fam-ily and different mem-bers of the community have continued the pet parade in her memory.

    Its been in the fam-ily and weve been keeping it going, and we really like to do that,

    Maloney said. It was my moms thing every year, the fall fair and the pet parade.

    Over the years, the pet parade, which is the first of its kind on Vancouver Island, has evolved along with the rest of Sooke. Maloney recalled in the parades early days, the event saw an abundance of fancied horses, cows and goats that were

    ushered down the events original course on Sooke Road by a fire truck.

    Now, the parade, which will circles around the Sooke Com-munity Hall, sees some livestock-like pets, but mostly an assortment of smaller breed dogs, reptiles, and other household critters.

    Entrants have also aged with the parade,

    with those who partici-pated as children now attending with their children and grandchil-dren.

    A lot of people say Sooke spirit is changing and the heart of Sooke isnt what it used to be... but once a year every-thing stays the same, she said. The thing that never changes is the kids... they have that smile on their faces when they win anything for their pet.

    The parade has a total of 21 categories for children including sec-tions like; best dressed pet, original costume, pet with longest ears and smallest pet.

    The event tends to see some of Sookes most creative animal lovers and peculiar pets.

    Maloney said some of the ingenious and witty entries shes seen include a pet flea for smallest pet, a teddy bear hamster driving around in a toy car and a young girl dressed up in a paper mache egg, holding a chicken, begging the perennial question: What came first, the chicken or the egg?

    We get all kinds of really interesting and fun things.

    Last year the parade had 61 families partici-pate in multiple catego-

    ries and about 10 adults in the adult section, which was instituted two years ago.

    Different prizes are awarded for the sev-eral categories includ-ing cash prizes, ribbons

    and 50th anniversary rosettes.

    Registration will occur on the day, and last minute partici-pants can join in right up to the moment of the parade at 1 p.m.

    The Sooke Fall Fair takes place Sept. 8 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Sooke Com-munity Hall and in the upper hall at the Legion on Sheilds Road.

    Above and beyond the call of duty

    We wish to express our thanks to the Sooke RCMP for their consider-ate and thorough handling of the reported hit and run damage to our vehicle last month.

    First off, we wish to thank the anonymous witness who kindly recorded the particulars of the vehicle that scraped our car when it was parked at Ever-green Mall. We contacted the RCMP and an offi-cer came to our residence, documented the dam-age, took the particulars of the offending vehicle, and commited to visit the owner to advise them of

    their responsiblities. Ultimately, the owner

    of the vehicle that hit our car admitted they were at fault and contacted ICBC so we were able to have our vehicle repaired.

    That might have been the end of the story, but in a demonstration of thoroughness, the offi-cer followed up with us to confirm that the matter had been resolved. No one was injured in this event and the damage was relatively minor, but we were nevertheless impressed by the officers consideration and fol-low-up.

    The RCMP was respon-sive at the outset, followed up as promised and then closed the loop to confirm that the matter was com-petely resolved.

    We want to acknowl-edge the RCMP offi-cers thoroughness and professional commitment to ensuring our interests were addressed. Well done and thanks.

    Against charging a public boat launch fee

    I am very disappointed to see that council is con-sidering charging a $10 fee for using the boat launch and sani dump.

    This council has made it abundantly clear that it is completely unaccept-able to support or finance

    private business, yet this is exactly what they are proposing with the neigh-bouring property.

    This is supposed to be a free public boat launch for the citizens of Sooke and as a taxpayer, I have (and will continue) 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 vehi-cle decal and access to the free launch. If you are not a tax paying resident of Sooke, you are charged the launch and sani dump fee. Decals can be applied for and issued annually at the municipal hall.

    Dont shoot the messenger

    OUR VIEW

    Rumour: n. 1. general talk or hearsay of doubtful accuracy.

    Real newspapers do not print rumours and most certainly never as a news item. While there may be a bit of leeway in the editorials for rumours, rumours have no place on a page where someone might take it as fact.

    Those who are trained in journalism, learn very quickly what is ethical and what is not. Rumours can and will lead to law suits, tarnished

    reputations and huge legal fees.

    There is a reason why some information takes a long time to become public and speculation often runs rampant before rumours are confirmed. There is always some truth in rumours, but

    if you use just Sooke as an example, things can get pretty muddied before there is confirmation. The same story goes around and around and it does not become more accurate at each telling, it gets less accurate.

    On another note, this paper has been accused of being against our volunteer firefighters. This is untrue and one has to wonder who is spreading that rumour. We do ask questions, thats our job. What we do question, at times, is spending by the fire department (and other departments). We question issues when they are brought to our attention by those who pay the taxes.

    District expense items are no longer behind closed doors, and most can be justified, so there is no longer a need to shoot the messenger.

    There is always some truth in rumours...

    Bare bones

    By the time you see the SEAPARC arena again, it will be transformed into a high-end art gallery, for the 10-day Sooke Fine Arts Show.

  • Media responsible for poor reputation, apparently

    It was refreshing to see, in your July 18 edition, positive coverage regarding Sooke Fire Rescue Service.

    Mayor Milnes article about the value of the fire department volunteers was encouraging, despite the concerning picture he paints for the residents of Sooke, who depend on the fire department for help in a variety of emergency situations.

    In contrast however, the past several years have seen the evolution of a pattern of negative coverage and opinions, ranging from ill-informed to seemingly malicious, regarding Sooke Fire Rescue Service much of it disseminated via editorial opinions and Letters to the Editor in these very pages. A bruised reputation from my experience, greatly unwarranted - within the community is the unavoidable result.

    Any organization facing repeated public challenges to reputation can be expected to struggle in efforts to recruit new members. Potential volunteers can be influenced by one-sided information they read, dissuaded by a desire to avoid affiliation with such a

    reputation, or simply uninterested in the prospect of being harangued in the media each week.

    Regardless of what Mayor Milne plans to change within Sooke Fire Rescue Service, the most important change needs to come from without. Until council takes a leading role in correcting published m i s i n f o r m a t i o n , standing up on behalf of their fire department to unwarranted attacks, and more publicly supporting Sooke Fire Rescue Service, I suspect that they will encounter continued difficulty in finding

    sufficient volunteers willing to be put on trial each week by the very community they protect.

    Mayor and council would be well advised to commit to continued public support of the fire department and to protect its reputation when coverage and/or published opinions are incorrect and damaging.

    I would venture that these actions would help them see the increase in volunteer numbers that they need.

    Animal tragedy in our own backyard

    Today is a very sad day for our foundation; we had rescued two ill cats from a woman who was said to have a cat rescue facility and the SPCA refuses to help us.

    On May, 2012, a mem-ber from our commu-nity requested us to investigate the living conditions of the 56 cats living in the above mentioned building.

    On May 6, the person

    feeding the cats brought two cats to us in good health, she said. The same day the two cats were adopted by a man in Sooke who had pro-mised taking very good care of them.

    At the beginning of June we received a complaint from the man saying the cats were not used to the lit-ter box. He said he was willing to keep trying for a while. In case he would change his mind, we had offered him to call us to pick them up. On June 15, we noticed that the cats were living outside day and night in the cold, but this time they were comple-tely frightened.

    On July 1, after obtai-ning the mans landl-ord approval to re-trap the cats we finally got them. The same day they were placed in a loving foster home.

    On July 19, the fos-ter mother gave us the diagnosis that both cats had intestinal pro-blems, but that one of them, Petite, needed immediate medical attention. Sadly, it was

    already too late for her. She had the FIV (Feline Immuno Virus) and a bacterium called, Cam-pylo Bachter, which does not like air.

    On July 20, 2012, we called the SPCA. We have covered the cost for the first cat and requested them to help us pay for the second one. The answer was, You were the one tak-ing the cats in and they are your responsibil-ity now. The fact that you cannot pay for the veterinary care of the animal does not speak highly about your foun-dation. If you want to surrender the animal to us you first need to pay for the FIV virus exam.

    It must be noted that in order to get an ani-mal tested we also need to pay for the doctors consultation totaling approximately $120.

    Therefore, the irony on this case is that people from Sooke are donating to help the animals in Victoria, but nobody is donating to help the animals in our own backyard?

    sewer studySome 15 Sooke busi-

    nessmen, galvanized into action by Regional Director Ray Nest-mans pledge to clean up Sooke harbour and basin from sewage pol-lution, have pledged $100 apiece to help finance the study of a new sewer system and treatment plant for the commercial core.

    Previous studies have indicated that the cost of a sewage sys-tem for this area could run into the millions and in April, 1979, the Regional Director Char-lie Perkins reported that both the CRD and the Ministry of Munici-pal Affairs declared this figure was far beyond the capabilities of the community and the matter was dropped.

    July 29, 1987Arts, 87 designer

    happy with show result

    Fine Arts 87 show designer Stuart Stark said that when he was asked to make over the Sooke Arena into an art gallery for the first

    show, Fine Arts 86, his first thought was, no way.

    The first time I saw the arena was in Feb-ruary, 1986. The place was knee-deep in pee-wee hockey players and steam and bright lights and it was hard to visualize it as an art gallery.

    But the energy and enthusiasm of the people from the Sooke Region Museum who were planning the show, coupled with the fact that I enjoy taking on formidable tasks, was enough to convince me to try it, he told the Mirror.

    The results of his efforts are now history, The area was miracu-lously transformed into a sophisticated art gallery with art works exhibited in a series of modular pods which, combined with a mas-terful use of lighting, give the viewer the feel-ing of intimacy within the large arena.

    The Liberal MP had visited the site of the timber blockage last month, later expressing concern over the scope and gravity of the situa-tion. He felt action ought to begin right away to have some clearing of the watercourse com-pleted before the fall rains made such work impossible.

    Thousands of logs jam the river bed in a scenario some feel poses a threat to fish habitat as well as homes in and around Port Ren-frew. There is a fear of flooding as well as damage from fast mov-ing logs which could be dislodged by high water and sent down stream toward the vil-lage and lands belong-ing to the Pacheedaht First Nation.

  • Gaynor Gauthier retires in order to create art

    Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Twenty two yearsago, publishing was very different than it isnow. These days any-one can become a desktop publisher, but back in 1990 things were a lot more complicated and printing was an art as much as a business.

    Anyone in the graph-ics and publishing busi-ness will remember cutting and pasting, wax machines and set squares, repro paper, exacto knives and draft-ing tables. It was cum-

    bersome, compared to todays computer assisted publishing, butit was an art. Gaynor Gauthier thrived in that world.

    In 1990, Gauthier came to Sooke with a lengthy background as a graphic designer working for printing and graphic firms.

    Im still a newcomer,

    she says with a laugh.Originally from back

    east, Gauthier found herself in Sooke andwhen she went in to buy an ad at the SookeNews Mirror, publisher John Arnett hired heron the spot.

    He needed someone to do high-end ads, and it also allowed me to carry on my business (graphic design), said Gauthier. Her stint at the Mirror was brief, but it allowed time for her own businessto take off. She was Phase West Graphics and she plastered the town with her graphics. Business cards, post-ers, pamphlets, visitor guides, you name it and Gauthier did it. She even hand drew logos and illustrations. You

    couldnt afford to make any mistakes and youhad to have a thorough knowledge of the pro-cesses.

    Its like giving birth,said Gauthier.

    Running a businessin Sooke, with all the competition in Victoria, was tough, but she per-severed. She worked below the poverty line and for minimum wage many times. She often worked 70-80 hours a week. But she believed in herself and what shewas trying to accom-plish.

    A graphic designer is not the same as

    someone who does desk top publishing your work has to look professional, she said.Its important to have a professional image.

    And image is what she sold, at both PhaseWest Graphics and Blue Moon Graphics.

    She worked for most of the established arts groups and organiza-tions in Sooke and for a time she produced Posi-tively Sooke, a monthly good news commu-nity magazine.

    Her clients appreci-ated her efforts. In many cases, she changed cor-porate images and with

    the upgrading their business tripled.

    All of a sudden the doors opened for cli-ents in Sooke, she said.

    As testament to that,one client stated, ...your work must havereached every corner of the world into diariesand backpacks with other happy vacation

    memories of the Sooke Region. Those words came from Whiffin Spit Lodge just after Gauth-ier announced that she was retiring from the graphic design busi-ness. She will continue to work for a couple oflocal groups as a com-munity service more than as a job.

    These days the off-

    set printing industry is suffering and along with that, no doubt, gothe small independent printing and graphicdesign firms. Gauthiers son Colin still worksfor a printing company and she says they both have printers ink in their veins. He was herstrongest advocate to quit the business anddo art.

    Gauthier hasnt had a vacation since 1997 and now that she is retired,she wants to discover her own backyard anddo some art. Images, graphics, colour andprint will all appear somehow in her art.She does very realistic portrait work and now wants to do things not so controlled, some-thing abstract. Shes anxious to get her art studio set up.

    Chances are thatwhen she does, she will be listening to theblues, creating art and discovering the innerwoman within.

  • Why should I buy original art?

    My brother once boasted, It isnt every-one who has original art on their walls. Once I got over the shock of realizing he was refer-ring to a piece that I had painted and given him, I started wondering about the comment.

    Is it only people with lots of money to invest who collect art? The kind of people you might see through a window at an art gal-lery opening, as you trudge home from your late foray to the grocery store? Are they swish-ing back champagne and canaps, lingering in front of an explosive shaft of blue paint on camo green garbage bags while you envision piles of laundry waiting back at the house? What if you actually catch a glimpse of something that you might be inter-ested in? Likely as not, just the idea of stepping in to get a better look is akin to swimming with sharks.

    So why are many of us so intimidated? Arent all humans pretty much the same under-neath our clothes? Setting foot in a high-end gallery can imme-diately make us feel a little out of our league with the posh interior, high prices and high heels. What language are they speaking? Can we look savvy, avoid the eye of the staff and get out in time to gasp our next breath? Whew! The truth of the matter is that this sophisti-

    cated, often stark and tasteful environment is carefully created to reduce distractions and to showcase the art. The work is sometimes unfamiliar, cutting edge demanding open-ness and curiosity from the viewer. Although we may be afraid of seeming stupid, why not ask the gallery worker, what should I be paying attention to in these paintings or can you explain how these pieces were cre-ated. Most gallery own-ers and employees are proudly supportive of their artists and keen to promote them. As art-ists, many of us long to have our work on their walls, to be recognized and compensated for our efforts.

    In a conversation with a fellow artist the other day, we agreed that although we may yearn for our story to grace the art history books, the real joy in selling our work is to witness the apprecia-tion of the viewer. That they like it enough to buy it, means they are experiencing some of what we felt when we created the art. I have been told as well, that for the buyer the art work means more to them if they know something about both the piece and the art-ist. So this leads me to the Stinking Fish Stu-dio Tour.

    Despite this being a more intimate setting, in my opinion it is much more comfortable for both the artist and the

    guests. Seeing the artist at work, learning about the process and what the thoughts are behind the art piece makes the experience immeasur-ably more enjoyable. Surprisingly, the artist also really enjoys the conversations, because we get to know about our new friends for the moment of that exchange. And admit-tedly, most of us like to talk about our work!

    We often like art that reminds us of an event or a place. A glance at the watercolour of a Mexican town takes our mind back to the warm January holiday and the brilliance of the bright pink bougainvillea.

    Buying original art means trusting your heart. When we see a piece that catches our interest, moves us or

    cheers with its colours, we need to set aside our swirling doubts and pause to reflect. Will I still like it in the morn-ing? Probably, and if I dont, I can ask the art-ist if I can exchange it or take it on a trial basis. Will my friends like it or think that I am colour blind and design chal-lenged? If it catches your interest, it will probably catch theirs too, given that birds of a feather flock together. And it doesnt hurt to be a little ahead of the curve. Art can grow on us, but what if you dont like the art? You wont necessarily be able to afford or like everyones art enough to buy it. Feel free to admire and linger or leave for the next studio. You can also purchase art cards to remind you of the vis-

    its and the artists.Is it worth the price?

    Believe me, when art-ists factor in the cost of framing, hours spent crafting the piece and the studio overhead, minimum wage for slinging beer looks more attractive by the day. But we create because we are pas-sionate and we hope you will be too. Happy hunting. Lead with your artists beret held high.

    The Stinking Fish Studio Tour runs from Aug. 3 to 12, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Some artists showing from Aug. 8 12). Please watch for the brochure and map or visit the website at www.stinkingfishstu-diotour.com.

    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.

    TThe he PPastor's astor's PPenenThere is a set of pictures on the internet entitled "Structural

    Engineer in Action". They show a bird building a mud nest on the window ledge of someone's house. Each successive picture shows the progression of the nest from its circular, bowl-shaped foundation to the nal spherical, enclosed structure, replete with an opening large enough for only tiny birds to use. The introduction

    to the pictures remarks on the distance to the little pond where the mud for the building was found, and the number of trips required to bring enough beak-loads to complete the structure.

    The little bird's house might last for a few seasons, but in time, it will break up. But each of us is building our lives by all the things we do each day. The process and progress might easily be compared to the bird's tiny beak-loads that it brings from a long distance away. Like the bird, we have to have patience to keep building for as long as it takes to give us security against the winds and storms of life.

    The last picture shows the bird's offspring in the doorway. This tiny creature was not only building for itself, but also had others in mind. And in the same way, we have to keep others in mind as we weave the fabric of life into our daily existence.

    What are the moral and ethical supplies you are weaving into the foundation and nishes of the edi ce that is your life?

    One of the important roles of the Christian Church in our community is to help you in times of struggle and stress, but we are also here to assist in nding the right materials for a solid structure that will sustain and protect you in those times of challenge. Don't wait for the winter storms to come before you participate in this life building experience. Come and see what we can do to help you build your life in preparation for all that is to come.

    Arts & EntertainmentSetting up for Sookes big fine art showSooke Fine Art Show set to open this weekendPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Alan Graves is a master at con-verting an ice arena into an art gal-lery, the hardest part of setting up the Sooke Fine Arts Show. It takes dozens of volunteers and hundreds of hours to achieve the look and feel of a gallery. And it happens beautifully every year.

    Graves takes care of details. The large and small details from the layout of the panels for the exhibitions modu-lar system to the light-ing, laying out of the art work to the tiny tweaks to straighten a paint-ing.

    For the past five years Graves has been the designer for the Sooke Fine Arts Show. He sorts through hun-dreds of works of art, finding the perfect spot to display each and every one.

    Each year is a little different and Graves said that this year they are consistently getting a number of art pieces that have the same esthetic.

    He felt the digital jury-ing process worked out very well and he was able to get a prelimi-nary view of the work. With that look at the work to be displayed he was quite surprised at the quality of the three-dimensional works.

    This year there are

    quite a number of new artists and a stronger representation of three-dimensional art. The quality is pretty consis-tent.

    Graves does not do this all alone. Over the past five years the Sooke Fine Arts Show has developed a men-torship program, train-ing local people in the art of exhibition design and display.

    Everyone is much more efficient and much more empow-ered, said Graves. Eight-five per cent of the hanging is done by the mentorship group. Graves just gives the final approval.

    From the front office to the people who sweep up the floor, there is a positive atti-tude. They serve lunch which is indicitive of the care of the people,

    said Graves. Its fairly unique.

    Graves has two other experienced people helping with the grand scheme of things. David Saeger, from Metchosin, is a retired preparator from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, who is volunteering his time to help set up the show. He said he likes the variety and the challenge.

    The result is always spectacular, said Sae-ger.

    The other man in charge is Robert Byers.

    Together they bring over 55 years of museum experience, said Graves.

    The Sooke Fine Arts Show opens to the pub-lic on Saturday, July 28 and runs to Aug. 6. For more information on exhibition times and events go to: www.sookefinearts.com

    Put your palooza on and Sooke it up

    Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Musicians have a way of scattering, playing in dif-ferent bands and generally moving along with the musi-cal ebb and flow.

    Seven years ago, Graham Mackenzie decided that it would be a cool thing to get some of this musical friends together for a party.

    I guess it all started when I met some musical friends I had lost touch with and said, lets play some music, said Mackenzie. They were all playing in different cities, dif-ferent bands, and I suggested we get together for a party.

    And that party ended up being hosted by the 17 Mile

    Pub. The 17 Mile has open mike nights every Sunday but this was to be something different. An outdoor stage and a lineup of bands soon brought the folks out for a day of music all kinds of music.

    Sookapalooza 2012 is hap-

    pening on July 28 at the 17 Mile Pub. Music starts at 3 p.m, right after the dodgeball tournament is finished.

    Were trying to change it to a festival atmosphere, said Mackenzie. We want people to wear costumes if they want to.

    He also said the bands lin-ing up for this gig are coming from further afield than the Sooke area. There are differ-ent bands coming from the mainland. The Brown Paper Baggers and Butterfly Jam Band are local as is Mack-enzies band Johnny Galac-tic. Handsome Distraction is from Victoria and Mackenzie is pleased they are coming to Sookapalooza just before they head off on their Cana-dian tour. These bands are joined by Tractorgrease Folk from Chilliwack, and The Colebrook Shepherds. Who knows, others may show up as well.

    You will never see this much local talent, with no cover charge, on an outside

    stage in the trees, with a beautiful waitress taking your order, while you dance like a maniac with good friends in your brand new Sookapa-looza shirt, said Mackenzie on the Sookapalooza 2012 Facebook page.

    The music will start out with a folksy/bluesy sound at 3 p.m and move onto reggae, funk/hip hop and end with good old rock n roll later in the evening.

    Its a Sooke thing and Mackenzie is pleased with the response from the pub as well as all of the people and friends who help make this event happen.

    No cover, no minors and no rain are the key for Sooka-palooza 2012.

    One lucky person will soon own a 2012 Harley-Davidson motorcycle for as little as $20.

    Fire rescue departments from both Langford and Sooke have teamed up selling raffle tickets for the big prize, a Harley-Davidson Switchback worth more than $20,000.

    The fire departments have purchased the bike from Steve Drane Harley-Davidson and hope to recoup the cost of the bike and then donate all the surplus funds raised to Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

    The runner-up prize is a trailer purchased from Thomcat Trailers valued at $3,000.

    We push the bike on the trailer and tour it to different events, said Lieut. Kelly Zado of Langford Fire Rescue.Tickets for the bike are $20 and only 3,000 have been printed.

    The firefighters have been selling tickets at events such as Western Speedways Sunday morning Swap and Shop and at Canada Day celebrations in Sooke.

    The money raised will help provide equipment for people living with muscular dystrophy. It will help supply wheelchairs, braces and ventilators to people in need.

    This is a very worthy cause and we hope people continue their support. For me its hitting close to home because my mother has muscular dystrophy.

    So far we have only sold 600 tickets, but we are optimistic we

    will sell them all, said deputy chief Kerry Zado. It appears to be slower than the other raffles, but we are well on our way.

    Hosting motorcycle

    raffles is nothing new to the Langford fire department who has held five raffles over the years. The last raffle was in 2007 and the department was

    able to donate $26,000 to research muscular dystrophy.

    The draw will be held on Aug. 12 at the fountain on Goldstream Avenue.

    Smart & Caring Kicks Offwith Victoria Foundation and Governor General

    Working Together how philanthropy shapes our community

    There were kicks, hits, tosses and high-fivesJuly 19 as the Victoria Foundation launched its Smart & Caring Community Fund with the help of the Governor General of Canada. The flurry of physical activity took place because one of the initiatives the $200,000 matching fund will support is a physical literacy program for young children. Program par-ticipants demonstrated activities for His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston and a crowd of more than 400 people at the Pacific Institute for

    Sport Excellence.Victorias fund is the first in a national Smart

    & Caring initiative of Community Founda-tions of Canada. Inspiration came from His Excellency in an address to the organization last year where he called on Canadas commu-nity foundations to help develop a smarter and more caring Canada to celebrate the nations 150th anniversary in 2017.

    [It] is a great way to support children, to help them battle inactivity and gain con dence. In turn, they might be inspired to help others throughout their lives, building on the kindness that they were shown early on. And who knows what they will think of to transform our communities in the future? And when this happens across the country,a better Canada is the result.

    His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston

    His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston presented Caring Canadian Awards to 10 B.C. residents. The Award recognizes individuals who volunteer their time to help others and to build a smarter and more caring nation.

    It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lorraine Susan, Barry, Sutherland, Meek. She was the beloved mother of Daniel Sutherland and David Meek (Dianne), and grandmother to Burney and Bailey. Lorraine was the adored daughter of Ron and Lorna Barry, and sister to Ronald (Marlene), Robert (Sheila), Edward (Terri) and Andrew (Susan). Lorraine is survived by many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles in Scotland and England, and wonderful friends.

    Lorraine was born in Penang Malaysia, on May 18, 1955, where her father was with the RAF in a theatre of war for several years before returning to England. She immigrated to Canada in 1956 with her parents and older brother Ronald. At the age of one and a half years, they settled in Victoria and nally moved to Sooke in 1969.

    Lorraine succumbed to cancer on July 9, 2012. A special thanks to the VIHA nurses, Dr. Pocock, Beacon Community Services, and all friends and family who helped with Lorraines care.

    A celebration of Lorraines life will be held in Sooke, at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort, on Friday July 27, 2012 at 1:00 PM.

    Lorraine MeekMay 18, 1955 - July 9, 2012

    It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of (Herbert Arthur) John Hill on July 9, 2012. Born on May 25, 1927 in England, John spent part of his life with the NAAFI, moving to the Rolls Royce Company where he proudly displayed their logo on everything he owned, including his latest set of wheels - his walker! John and June immigrated to Sooke in 2002 and fell in love with the town and the people. John had a carefree way about him and attracted new friends wherever he went. He will be missed by his brown eyed soulmate June, son Martin (Janice) Sooke BC, daughter Alison (Nigel) England, sisters Mary and Nancy, England, grandchildren Ryan (Whitney), Kerri, Timothy, Ben, Sam, Chris, and great grandchildren Alexa, Tyson, Kaleb and Toby. We would like to thank Dr Saunders and his staff for the care and compassion given to John over the past decade, and the staff at Ayre Manor for making the past four years his home. In leu of owers, donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or to the Sooke Seniors Centre. A celebration of life will be held at Ayre Manor on August 8, 2012 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Special thanks to the nurses of Victoria General Hospital, 6C North for their care. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallbros.com.

    Sports & Leisure Please send sports tips to Sharron Ho at: news@sookenewsmirror.comSooke triathlon seeking volunteers Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

    The Subaru Sooke Triathlon will see about 500 to 600 athletes come to Sooke from Aug. 10-12 for the race and preliminary activi-ties. In order to ensure the large scale comp-tition runs smoothly, more volunteers are needed.

    So far, half of the 300 required volunteers have been acquired.

    Our doors are wide open for more volun-teers, we need them for sure, said race direc-tor, Matt Mortensen.

    Mortensen said any volunteers who sign up now will most likely be in a marshalling posi-tion -- a job that entails guiding competitors on run and bike courses.

    There is also a need for volunteers to help set up and take down different equipment and objects for the race.

    For groups who will do more heavy lifting and more labour inten-sive volunteer work, Lifesport -- the organi-zation company for the triathlon series -- will provide honorariums. Groups of 15 will be given $350 and groups of 25 will be given $500.

    We try to support local groups and teams

    in the way of giving back to them finan-cially for the help they give us.

    With about three weeks left, Mortensen said planning for the large event has been going well.

    Otherwise the orga-nization is going well, we have been working very diligently on the

    road closure plan. The bike course will

    take place along West Coast Road, which will be closed from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. westbound and 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. eastbound on Aug. 12.

    This year, a contin-gency plan was imple-mented where resi-dents will be able to travel through from

    8:30 to 9 a.m. for emer-gency purposes.

    Were trying to cre-ate some flexibility, while at the same time were trying to make it safer, Mortensen said.

    But access at any other point in time dur-ing the closure will not be permitted.

    In addition, Mortensen hopes mem-bers of the community and businesses will show their support for the triathlon by putting up signs and coming out to enjoy the race.

    We would love to have them put signs out and try to show the visitors how hospitable Sooke is, he said.

    As a long-time par-ticipant in triathlons, Mortensen said volun-teers and community involvement are what makes a large triathlon event.

    I can tell you theres not a competitor in the world that wont say the same thing -- that the volunteers make the race, he said. It doesnt matter how well we dress it up, how beautiful the course is -- it still comes down to the volunteers.

    To register to become a volunteer, visit: www. triseries.ca, and click on the Volunteer tab under the Sooke race.

    About half of 300 volunteer positions have been filled

    UP TO THE CHALLENGEDon DescoteauNews staff

    Cory Moore had just returned from a tour of Bosnia with the Canadian army when faced with news about his grandmother, Lorraine Payne.

    After beating esophageal cancer years earlier, Payne was in her final weeks in a battle against lung cancer. She lost the fight in 2003, less than a month after Moore returned home.

    Payne was like another parent to him, says Moore, noting that he and his mother lived with his grandma through his formative years.

    Now in his fifth year with the Victoria Police Department and a member of the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock cycling team, Moore will be thinking of his grandma most as he undertakes the annual ride and fundraiser.

    She was an important part of my life, says Moore, a police constable.

    Hell also be thinking of various aunts and uncles who have been lucky enough to beat cancer.

    The Belmont secondary grad confesses he wasnt much of a cyclist before this year.

    Everything changed in January when Moore became a member of VicPDs bicycle squad.

    Later, after speaking with Barrie Cockle, a VicPD rider on the 2008 tour, he decided to tackle the arduous and emotional challenge of Tour de Rock.

    The learning curve (has been) fast and furious, Moore says. Now Im on the bike probably six days a week.

    Like Moore, VicPD patrol officer Const. Jose Bingham was more a runner than a cyclist before being accepted onto the 2012 tour roster. He expects the gruelling training rides the group is doing will leave the team over prepared for the 1,000-kilometre tour, which goes Sept. 23 to Oct. 5.

    Bingham, Moore and fellow 2012 Tour de Rock rider, third-year VicPD Const. Kyle Roy, have each met their junior rider a child going through or recovering from cancer treatment who is assigned to each tour rider.

    Each police officer has been struck by the courage shown by the youngsters and the gratefulness of the families for the B.C. Cancer Society, the Tour de Rock and the riders.

    A married father of a 12-year-old son and

    a nine-year-old daughter, Bingham lost his stepfather and an aunt to cancer and watched a good friend endure breast cancer treatments at age 33.

    The thought of children going though the pain and treatment of cancer is just mind-boggling, he says. They dont have a chance in life before getting hit with that.

    Roy, who also has experienced family with cancer, understands the power of the tour.

    Other riders from years past say the big one is Camp Goodtimes, the Esquimalt High grad says the team visits the camp in Maple Ridge this week. Thats really an opportunity to see the whole scope of what the Cancer Society does for families. To

    see it in action is the turning point for a lot of riders.

    All riders on the tour have a $5,000 individual fundraising goal.

    While he will endeavour to raise that much and more, Bingham is keen to help make a difference in the lives of children fighting cancer and family members who support the youngsters through the ordeal.

    (We heard) it used to be a one-in-five survival rate (for children with cancer), now its four in five. Thats quite a dramatic difference, he says.

    Its through fundraising and research into treatments. What were doing right now, in the long run it will make a difference. We may not see the immediate impact, but my hope is in the long run we will.

    Slo Pitch tourney returns

    Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

    The Sooke Slo Pitch Association will be hold-ing their large annual tournament from Aug. 4-6 around the Fred Milne Park area.

    The Sooke Invita-tional, which has been a present in the com-munity for about 30 years, will take place at Fred Milne Park, Edward Milne commu-nity School, and Sooke elementary.

    So far there are 30 co-ed teams attend-ing, including 14 teams from Sooke. There are also four mens teams registered to partici-pate from the Victoria Mens Masters Slopitch League.

    More mens teams are expected to register in the coming weeks, according to Mike Gib-son, Sooke Slo Pitch Association vice-presi-dent.

    Despite its long stand-ing history, the tourna-ment has seen a slight decline in participation in recent years.

    Its declined... we used to cap it at 22 (Sooke) teams, 22 years ago, Gibson said. But now were down to 14 for the Sooke league.

    He speculated rea-sons for the decline may be a loss of inter-est from younger gener-ations, people moving away and employment, but added there is no definable reason.

    Theres not much you can do about it, teams are struggling to get players now.

    The event serves as the main fundraiser for the association, raising approximately $4,000 to $5,000 each year in

    concession and beer sales.

    Some of the money from last years tourney has been put towards a temporary angled park-ing lot on Sooke River Road across from Fred Milne Park, which will accommodate 50 to 60 cars.

    The association is responsible for the cost and work of the tempo-rary parking lot, which was approved by coun-cil on June 25.

    Gibson said the proj-ect will be completed before the tournament.

    Biggest Loser finalist joins Sooke triathlon Tara Costa, a finalist on season seven of the Biggest Loser, Sooke bound

    Sharron Ho Sooke News Mirror

    Tara Costa, 27, was a finalist on season seven of the weight loss tele-vision program, the Big-gest Loser, in 2009.

    She won a record-set-ting eight challenges, and managed to shed 155 pounds from her original 294 pound frame.

    Now working as a life coach, motivational speaker and weight-loss counsellor, Costa travels throughout the U.S.

    After viewing photos and hearing stories of beautiful Western Canada, the region has always been a desired destination for Costa.

    So when she received an email from a race director inviting her to participate in the Sub-aru Sooke Triathlon set for Aug. 12, Costa seized the opportunity.

    Theres never been time for a vacation, so when this opportunity came about it was a no -brainer, she said.

    I love participating in races and going to a new area, Costa said. When youre riding a bike in a country-side in different areas and through towns you just really learn about the area in general and you learn about the cul-ture.

    Costa has been involved in triathlons of varied distances from

    Olympic, sprint and half-iron man.

    Due to a hip injury, Costa will either enter in the Olympic or sprint

    distance courses, depending on her con-dition.

    Im looking forward to taking part in the

    race, she said, adding the culture and person-alities surrounding tri-athlons are motivating.

    It feels good to push

    yourself to the limit and do it.

    And although the nature of a triathlon may be competitive, Costa said she only ever competes with herself.

    I dont really think I really compete against others. I think I just compete against myself, she said. Im going out there and doing things because I know I can do it.

    For those who wish to lose weight, but lack the confidence, Costa offered the follow-ing advice: Complete goals marked, Just for today.

    Costa said by making weight loss goals short-term, it makes the end goal seem less daunt-ing.

    Put your head down and keep working towards it, she said.

    Just for today you can.

    Her life has changed since her dramatic weight loss, and accord-ing to her website she has inspired millions along the way.

    The path that Im on, Im going to try to do the best that I can, she said.

    Its a really cool feel-ing, Ive helped inspire (people) to do better, to become something dif-ferent.

    I want to lead by example, and I want to walk my talk.

    A basketball camp will be coming to Sooke from Aug. 14 to 17 to help local youth improve skills before the upcoming season.

    The camp will take place at Edward Milne community school, and will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

    There are about 30 spots available for both boys and girls going into Grades 6 to 9.

    Were going to teach them basic fundamen-tals and team play and sportsmanship, said one of the coaches, Trevor Bligh.

    Well be broken down into 60 per cent skill development and forty per cent team play.

    The intention of the camp is to build interest in basketball amongst Sooke youth, and to ensure kids entering middle school and high school basketball have the proper foundation to continue.

    Were getting a lot of kids with no basic fun-damental skills that are entering high school and we figured this would target it, Bligh said, adding the camp will also give more opportunities for youth to play ball.

    I want to make bas-ketball as easily acces-sible to kids in Sooke as soccer, hockey and

    fastball. Were looking to have a youth league in the future and this is

    a good way for us to get numbers.

    Kids can register by

    contacting Bligh at: theblighs@gmail.com. There is a $59 registra-

    tion fee and the dead-line is Aug. 9.

    Fees will be used to

    pay for gym rentals, and any remaining pro-ceeds will be donated

    to the senior boys bas-ketball team.

    Fishing is hitting prime time in bothSooke and Port Ren-frew. Now, with decentweather happening, anglers are getting outon the water for some good chinook aand hal-ibut action.

    In Sooke, Otter Pointseems to be where best action is. Fishing eitheron the Gordons Beach side or the trailer parkside has been good.

    Good depths of 40 to 120 feet on the downrig-ger works best. Bloody Nose teaser head withanchovy trolled behind a purple onion hot spotis a good setup. I find my best results are close to the bottom. Theres lots of cohoaround with many being hatchery.

    In Port Renfrew fish-ing is also getting good.Fishing the beach the

    best action is Logan to the Wallbran althoughOwen Point to the rock pile has been good aswell.

    Early this week NoBananas Charters hooked two nice Tyeesoff Logan to make for happy clients on board.The Swiftsure Bank has been very productiveas well. With more than a week of good weather, flat water and no swell

    fishing for chinooks and halibut has beengood. The hot spot being the south westcorner of the bank at the chicken ranch. JoshWalker of Trailhead Resort caught a nicechinook on the banks, a 31-pounder. Im sure thats just the start of bigger ones to come.

    Until next time.Keep your rod tip up!Kiwi Magic
