    Downzoning affects property rightsProperty rights questioned Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Down-zonings on water-front properties has left some residents of Sooke question-ing the reasons. It has also opened up more inquiries as to the rationale of chang-ing other zonings without informing property owners.

    At the heart of the mat-ter is the growing opposi-tion to an application to amend the purpose and definition of the W2 zone.

    A public hearing for a bylaw amendment to Bylaw No. 500 Sooke Zon-ing Bylaw, 2011 was held to add group moorage into the purpose of the W2 zone and allow group

    moorage as a principle use and define group moorage.

    The proposal is to define group moorage as a multi-berth moorage similar to a private moorage facil-ity but for the personal use of a group or associa-tion of residents from the surrounding community.

    At the public hearing a number of people came forward to speak of their opposition to the change. Some were residents on neighbouring properties, citing potential parking, noise and dust problems. Another felt, in a written submission to council, that this could cause any num-ber of properties zoned W2 to expand their moorage to the maximum and cre-ate more group moorages.

    A petition with 31 sig-natures opposed to group

    moorage was presented to council along with a cou-ple of written submissions.

    One resident said, Coun-cil does not have the right to takeaway our peace-ful existence... or drive down property values.

    Realtor Bruce McMillan stated this was a gross invasion of privacy.

    Salty Towers owner Neil Flynn, whose property is next to the con-troversial prop-erty seeking a W2 zoning and group moorage, said this proposed bylaw would affect all private docks.

    If changes are made, any private dock could pursue group moorage, said Flynn.

    If an illegal situation occurs for a long time does that make it legal? he questioned.

    District planner Gerard LeBlanc said the changes were made because they did not want to create non-con-forming zoning and they picked a zoning which would apply to the property based on (foreshore) lease. In regard to the specific property at 1573 Dufour, LeBlanc said the property had private moor-age and more than

    private moorage was hap-pening there. W3 zoning does not apply to upland use, and is a commercial ie: marina designation.

    Mayor Wendal Milne asked how many W2 zones would be affected and said he could not support the amendment.

    In the information packagepresented at the public hear-ing, it stated that six proper-ties would be affected by the bylaw amendment, others felt there were many more.

    When the latest Sooke Zoning Bylaw 500 was enacted there were many properties which were down-zoned to comply with various land use categories. Property owners were not informed personally but rather through an all encom-passing advertisement in the Sooke News Mirror, said Councillor Rick Kasper.

    He said this makes it necessary for the property owners whose zoning has changed to apply and pay

    for a rezoning to bring their properties back to the origi-nal land use designation and resulting applicable uses.

    He also said that there were hundreds of proper-ties in seven categories that had their properties down-zoned. Most, if not all, of those properties were out-side the sewer specified area.

    Kasper thinks this is some sort of money grab.

    Property rights have been stolen, he said, add-ing that the changes have serious impact on prop-erty owners and the origi-nal zoning should be rein-stated. He questioned what the reasoning was in changing the zoning and to whose benefit it was done.

    The item was tabled at the council meeting.

  • The current coun-cil came to office in December last year. In those seven months, we have listened to taxpayers and are working to set the community on a new course for the future.

    Growth in the District of Sooke has slowed in comparison to previ-ous years. We expect some improvement in 2012, however we con-tinue to hear that we need to be cautious in all areas of spend-ing. Businesses and families are struggling to keep up with rising costs. Council believes a sustainable commu-nity must be afford-able, we will continue to make careful deci-sions related to spend-ing, while ensuring you have the services expected in a thriving and livable community.

    Here are some of the ways we are working to meet the commit-ments of more open-ness, transparency and accountability:

    We established a new committee system to bring more open-ness and transparency to council decisions. New volunteer mem-bers from the public have been added to the committees provid-ing a wealth of experi-ence and expertise. All budget and other committee meetings have been held in pub-lic and we continue to welcome public input.

    The Finance and Administration Com-mittee created a bud-get that is sustainable and forward looking with a zero tax increase for residences and a decrease for businesses of about one per cent in the municipal portion of your taxes. Coun-

    cil asked staff to find reductions and with their work and creativ-ity we found cost sav-ings while maintaining or enhancing services in all departments.

    The Land Use Com-mittee has introduced a number of amendments to zoning bylaws to cre-ate more affordable housing and encourage growth in the core area.

    The Economic Development Com-mission has brought together various groups from the tourism, arts, culture, business and non-profit commu-nity to work together on common interests and goals with a more focused vision for eco-nomic development.

    We are reviewing all of our services, to make sure we are as efficient as possible and getting the best service for your tax dol-lar and expect to report on our findings over the coming months.

    We are looking at our financial reporting to ensure responsive and improved infor-mation for council, staff and the public.

    We have negotiated cost savings for a major contract issued before we came to office. We are pleased to report that we have worked together with EPCOR to find savings in their annual costs of about five per cent. This will amount to about $50,000 a year in cost savings, or more than $200,000 over the contract term. We appreciate the work of our service provid-ers in their offers of savings to the commu-nity and we continue to review other contracts.

    We hope to build more sidewalks on Church and repave

    Maple Avenue to make these routes safer and more attractive.

    We are looking at the Grant-Throup connec-tor and the possibility of a traffic circle in the centre of town. Both of these projects have been delayed as the property acquisition that is required to com-plete these projects was never completed. We are working with the landowners and believe we will reach a successful conclusion.

    Councillors Kasper, Tait, Haldane, Pearson, Reay and Berger have been working hard with staff, spending count-less hours on the vari-ous committees and meetings to make things happen. Our focus over the remainder of this year is to continue our vision of openness and sustainable spending for Sooke while moving the community forward. To do this we need to continue to receive your input and feed-back as we make deci-sions going forward.

    Wendal Milne, Mayor

    Mayor reports on first seven months

    Injured hiker evacuatedA Cormorant heli-

    copter crew from 442 Transport and Res-cue Squadron assisted ground first responders with the evacuation of an injured hiker from the Juan de Fuca Trail, late Sunday evening.

    Paramedics from B.C. Ambulance, as well as members of Juan de Fuca and Cowichan Ground Search and Res-cue (GSAR) responded to the initial call for help to assist a hiker who had slipped from the trail boardwalk and injured his leg near San Juan Point. While they were able to stabilize the patient, the thick forest and rough terrain made ground evacuation diffi-cult. Through the Joint Rescue Coordination

    Centre in Victoria, B.C. Ambulance requested helicopter support to evacuate the patient.

    Under driving rain, paramedics and GSAR members loaded the patient onto a litter and carefully made their way out from under thick forest canopy to the shoreline where he could be evacu-ated by helicopter.

    We used our radar to navigate along the shoreline to find the pick-up location, said Captain Jean Leroux, aircraft commander. Despite the low ceiling and heavy rain, we were able to spot the crews on the ground. Unfor-tunately, the high tide and rugged shoreline meant there were few

    spots for us to conduct the hoist of the patient.

    With the helicopter hovering 100 feet over the rocky shoreline, Search and Rescue Tech-nicians (SAR Techs) were lowered to start the hoist of the patient.

    The paramedics and GSAR crews had a tough job; it was very wet and slippery and the brush on the for-est floor was very thick in the area, said Ser-geant Shawn Harrison, SAR Tech. They did great work in getting him to the shoreline.

    Once aboard the heli-copter, the patient was flown to Victoria Gen-eral Hospital where he was transferred in stable condition.

    S U N S C R E E N SThe SPF on sunscreen stands for

    Sun 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 perspiration reduce 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.Ron Kumar

    Suicide sparks formal complaints commissionLocal military officer works with grieving parentsPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    Changes enacted to the Bill of Rights preventing the military from intervening in suicide attempts and cutbacks to medical professionals involved in suicide prevention in the Canadian military may have aided in the death of a 27-year-old Afghanistan and Bosnia war veteran.

    After six previous attempts, Cpl. Stuart Langridge committed suicide by hanging on March 15, 2008 at CFB Edmonton and his parents are still grappling with the fact that a lack of psychiatric help may have led to his death.

    Sheila and Shaun Fynes were being aided through the grieving process by veteran army officer Major Stewart Parkinson. Parkinson, a Sooke resident, served for over 42 years with deployments to Iraq, Cyprus and Germany. He still carries bits of shrapnel in his body and is now a part-time Class A Reservist.

    Parkinson was the Assisting Officer assigned to the Fynes after their sons death. He said that when a casualty happens what kicks in is a casualty support system with an officer assigned to the family to help them through the process. A formal Military Police Complaints

    Commission is sitting in Ottawa to probe complaints laid by Langridges parents. The Fynes case is based on the Military Police actions after the suicide.

    There are a number of things the family is entitled to, said Parkinson. Documentation is then passed through me back up through the military line.

    He said the Assisting Officer would have normally come from the Lord Strathcona Horse through Edmonton, Langridges regiment, but in this case was assigned to the closest unit.

    There is some controversy as to whether Langridge suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, said Parkinson. He was not injured during his tour in Afghanistan and it was two years after that he hung himself.

    When he came back a combination of things

    affected him adversely and he spiraled down due to drug and alcohol abuse, said Parkinson.

    He was still on active duty. Somewhere in that period he had

    enough problems to try and kill himself.

    The crux of the problem, according to Parkinson, is that on his sixth suicide attempt the military had to deal with ineffective civilian psychiatric help being available. Langridge had recently spent time in a dependancy treatment program that he was withdrawn from as a treatment failure and was then sent back to base. I got the distinct

    impression he wasnt accepting treatment, said Parkinson.

    It has been reported in the media that the Canadian military is cutting the jobs of

    medical professionals involved in suicide prevention and PTSD monitoring, at the same time as Defence Minister Peter Mackay is stating there is no question that the effects of multiple deployments to Afghanistan have had a debilitating effect on the mental health of Canadian troops.

    In 2011, defence department statistics show 31 cases of attempted suicide.

    A Board of Inquiry is formed to investigate any deaths (suicides) along with a review called a psychological autopsy. Other reports from civilians who provide much of the care of mentally ill soldiers describe the system as one that leaves the soldiers waiting for months before seeing a psychologist or psychiatrist. A Department of National Defence report states that suicides have increased in the military (20 in 2011, 12 in 2010) since 1995.

    Although Langridge was suicidal (after six attempts) the civilian psychiatrist on his case told him not to do drugs and drink and sent him on his way, related Parkinson.

    If they are sending a guy away with rope burns around his neck, you are not doing your job, Parkinson said.

    The unit has its hands tied, he said. They never used to have more than one chance (to commit suicide). The unit realized they had a problem but had no means to deal with it. They created a suicide watch. The military has since reneged on that terminology said Parkinson. They did what they thought they could do but they were not trained. They let him go to his room and two hours later they went looking for him and he had finished the job. Parkinson feels the unit erred on the side of caution.

  • Disorder is a very real disorder. In the old days it was called shell shock, its all the same stuff, he said.

    The human mind is overcome by what it has to deal with. If it is treated quickly, as close to where it occurred the better the success rate. PTSD is a debilitating mental injury caused by one or a series of horrific incidents that the mind cannot cope with. If you give service and you are injured you should benefit from it.

    Psychiatric reports state that Langridge was not suffering from PTSD but drug and alcohol addiction.

    The Fynes and Parkinson grew close during those tough times. Some military members thought Parkinson was too close to the Fynes and was told not to pass on any conjectural email correspondence he might receive to the parents, although he was not relieved of his Assisting Officers duties.

    I didnt care about career consequences as I was doing my duty, said Parkinson. I wasnt so close, I was expressing the way the Fynes felt they

    were being treated. There was a number

    of ways Parkinson thought the Fynes were being wrongfully treated. One of them was the next-of-kin. His short term ex-girlfriend was listed as next-of-kin and she was the one who had all the say about the funeral. The flag was presented to her rather than the parents. The g i r l f r iend , R e b e c c a H a m i l t o n -Tree, gave incorrect information on the Proof of Death Certificate, which Parkinson says was illegal in Alberta. The Fynes spent close to $12,000 to amend the Proof of Death certificate. The parents were not informed about a suicide note left by Langridge until well over a year later. There were also a number of other issues, like the Board of Inquiry which should have been carried out within 30 days after the death and was done 14 months later. Parkinson said he thinks the Brigade staff may have

    forgotten about it.The Fynes were

    looking to the Board of Inquiry to see that whatever came out would aid in preventing

    this from happening to others and they felt this aim was not achieved by the results.

    There is no litigation being carried out by the Fynes. When the Fynes began this long process they were looking at investigating p o s s i b l e n e g l i g e n c e causing death by the military

    police and this resulted in a full-blown hearing.

    They dont do these hearings lightly or often, said Sheila Fynes. Were very pleased that finally somebody gets it.

    She said their ultimate

    goal is to shed enough light on the system that resulted in Stuarts death. Fynes said they did not want the inquiry done quickly, just done right. They knew he was sick, and at which point did they drop the ball? We wanted a full investigation.

    The hearing will go to the end of June, then break for the summer to resume in September.

    The military is spending $18 million to protect its image and at the same time they are closing mental health centres for our soldiers. This shouldnt be happening. This isnt just Stuarts story, said Fynes.If you dont admit the system is broken how can you fix it? I dont ever, ever want Stuarts story to happen again, its been a nightmare.

    Helping hand allows eagle to fly freeSharron HoSooke News Mirror

    His daughters think hes a hero, but Andy England said he was just doing the right thing.

    A juvenile bald eagle was released in Sooke on June 13 around 2 p.m. after receiving rehabilitative care at the BC SPCA Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (Wild ARC).

    Sooke resident Andy England, found the distressed eagle submerged in mud on the morning of June 4.

    England was performing regular duties at work, around the Butler Brothers property near 6228 Sooke Road, when he spotted the young, male eagle stuck up to its neck in mud, with its wings outstretched over the surface.

    He quickly decided to free the eagle, and placed a towel over its head so he could loosen the clay-like mud around its body. England then tucked its wings inward and wrapped the bird in his jacket.

    He kind of just looked at me kind of dejected-like, like Look at what Ive done to myself, England said, adding the bird-of-prey was too exhausted to fight back.

    It is suspected the eagle was after a deer carcass that was also

    submerged in the mud, which England removed to ensure other animals would not end up in the same predicament.

    England took the bird to Wild ARC, where the eagle was cleaned up, warmed up, fed and cared for by rehabilitation workers for just over a week until its release.

    There was probably about five pounds of mud, said Christina Carrieres, senior wildlife rehabilitator. There was a thick layer covering basically almost his entire body.

    The eagle did not suffer from any other injuries

    other then exposure to the elements and exhaustion.

    Carrieres said the eagle was placed in a large flight pen, and when it appeared to fly well, the decision was made to release it in the same place it was found.

    She stated that had England not intervened, the eagle would have died.

    That eagle wouldve definitely died, he wouldnt have survived.

    When asked why he took the time to save the eagle, England simply stated, It was the right thing to do. It was kind of defenceless, and if I didnt get him

    out of there he probably wouldve been eaten by the turkey vultures and the ravens that hang around here.

    The eagle, estimated to be about two years old with a wing span of under two metres, took a strong and quick flight when set free.

    C a r r i e r e s commended England for his good deed, but his greatest admirers were clearly his two daughters Coral, 7, and Tamara, 10, who hugged their father after witnessing the birds release, proudly proclaiming, Dad, youre a hero.

    Wild ARC is mainly funded by donations,

    and receives no funding from the government. Monetary donations can be made at: www.spca.bc.ca/branches/wild-arc/

    The wildlife refuge is also currently in need of edible berries.

    B.C. Views In February this column

    asked the question: Are B.C.s greenhouse gas reduction targets history?

    The answer is contained in a new draft plan from BC Hydro on how to meet future power demand. And while its not explicitly stated, the answer is yes.

    The draft plan was released in May for discussion purposes, but so far there hasnt been much discussion. This is surprising given some of the recommendations, such as firing up the Burrard Thermal natural gas power plant more often and buying fossil fuel power from the North American market to keep up to demand.

    The plan confirms a few things that have been evident for a while. Dreams of exporting B.C. hydroelectric power are gone for the foreseeable future. And with mining ramping up along with natural gas development and population growth, BC Hydro now projects electricity demand could rise by 50 per cent over the next 20 years.

    The emergence of huge shale gas sources in B.C. and across the United States has changed the North American energy picture dramatically, as U.S. electricity producers replace coal by burning cheaper and cleaner gas to ramp up power production. B.C. is losing gas market share in the U.S., its only export customer for heating fuel

    and electricity use.Former premier Gordon

    Campbells climate goals officially remain in place: 33 per cent greenhouse gas reduction by 2020 and a whopping 80 per cent by 2050. If the gas boom proceeds as planned, B.C. domestic emissions will not be down, but up considerably by 2020.

    Premier Christy Clark has a new target for 2020: three liquefied natural gas production lines feeding high-pressure tankers at Kitimat, for export to Asia. Not only will B.C. need to buy gas-fired power from outside the province to keep up to industrial and residential demand, but the natural gas industry will need its own new gas-fired electricity to produce LNG for export.

    Natural gas passed forestry as B.C.s top resource revenue source many years ago. In 2005, the volatile gas price spiked up and produced $1 billion in windfall profits that allowed the B.C. government to buy a rare period of public sector labour peace through the 2010 Olympics.

    Now a glut of shale gas has pushed the North American price down from its historic range of $4 to $6 per thousand cubic feet to about $2.40. Despite that low price, gas producers in B.C. are going flat out to develop the Horn River and Montney shale gas deposits

    in northeast B.C.I asked David Pryce, vice-

    president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, why so much gas is being developed now. He said producers have made huge investments in B.C. shale gas drilling rights, and are in an international race to supply LNG to Asian countries where the price is currently four times higher than in North America.

    Whatever the domestic price, B.C. gas producers have to show LNG investors such as Mitsubishi and Korea Gas that they can fill a steady procession of LNG tankers at a competitive rate.

    If LNG doesnt fly here, B.C.s gas export market soon evaporates. Currently gas producers pay about $400 million a year in royalties, and that much again to buy up shale gas drilling rights. The industry already employs about 12,000 workers in B.C.

    The B.C. government has little choice but to redefine its climate targets. Instead of cutting domestic emissions, it will try to take credit for displacing coal power in Asia.

    Fortunately, B.C.s main coal exports are for high-grade coal used in steel-making.

    In last weeks cartoon the cartoonist was in no way taking any credit away from Carl Heinrich but rather dissing Olgas qualifications. Olga is a character, not a real entity and not Britt Santowski the cartoonist. She is meant to be that

    one voice that sees things just a little differently. Which she does. She is not meant to be taken so seriously.

    Like Olga or hate Olga, she is just a caricature and compilation of many women.

  • Goose crossing will be unsafe

    I am disturbed by the the planned light-controlled pedestrian crossing at Cooper Cove by the Minis-try of Transportation and Infrastructure along with the Capital Regional District (CRD).

    While it is evident that people utilizing the Galloping Goose Trail certainly need some form of safe crossing across Highway 14, this is not the solution and could lead to accidents at this part of the road.

    I feel that it is folly to install this random-type control on what is a busy highway well away from the Sooke urban area and close to a commercial restau-rant road entrance. The traffic delays may well be short lived but will probably be frequent especially on summer vacation periods. Why put a further burden on road traffic? Another more worrying feature is the difficult line-of-sight at this low part of the road: the descend-ing grade going west from Langford, etc. has several sharp bends and the crossing will be difficult to see from a distance because of rock outcrops. Stopped traffic here may be vul-nerable to rear-ending accidents. Advanced warning signs certainly should help but they are no guarantee to pre-vent possible accidents.

    The overall cost of

    this venture is stated to be $130,000; this money would have been bet-ter put towards a per-manent bridge with appropriate ramping, a better and safer solu-tion for everyone con-cerned. Was there any invitation for public input on this proposal?

    Perhaps Lloyd Rush-ton, CRD general man-ager of parks and com-munity, could enlighten us as to how this deci-sion was arrived at.

    Pointing to the truth

    I cannot tell you how

    pleased I was to read an article (Future is worri-some at any age, Gold-stream Gazette, June 15, 2012) that finally spoke out the truth.

    No name call-ing, no pointing at political parties, just truths. Bravo to you.

    My only wish is that those with power to do something about the world around us, would or should I say could, compre-hend your words.

    Thank you again.Sheila Bull

    Cartoon not understood

    As a Sooke resident for over 23 years living in a community full of awesome people who pull together as a great community when things matter, I was a bit dis-appointed to read Britt Santowskis cartoon in our local paper.

    Dismayed at the fact that she was not chosen to speak at this years EMCS grad ceremony and her disrespect for their choice.

    She says shes not sure why this Carl dude got the gig.

    Maybe she doesnt read her own paper, or she would know why he

    was the perfect choice.Living in Sooke, gra-

    duating from EMCS after spending three years in the Culinary Arts pro-gram then apprenti-cing at Sooke Harbour House; finishing first place in a student coo-king competition, culi-nary college, working in top establishments in New York, Monaco, Vancouver and Toronto and of course, win-ning Canadas top chef.

    Sounds like he was a great choice to me to let other EMCS students know to follow their dreams and not let obstac-les get in their way.

    I had the oppor-tunity to work with Carl dude and was so proud to hear of his accomplishments over the years. He is a caring, awesome per-son who deserved the honour of being the key-note speaker at EMCS.

    Way to go Carl, you make us very proud.

  • 10 OPINION www.sookenewsmirror.com WEDNESDAY, JUNE 20, 2012 - SOOKE NEWS MIRROR

    I am opposed to the communications tower application 6631 and 6633 Sooke Road for health reasons and oth-ers.

    My understanding has been that the Dis-trict of Sooke wants to create high density in the downtown core where I live. Mariners Village Phase 1 is high density and is only metres from our prop-erty line. I am con-cerned that Mariners Village property own-ers, as well as tenants and workers, within the 100 metre distance of the proposed commu-nications tower have not been properly noti-fied or are even aware of the health issues related to this proposal. I have called and spo-ken to people and they know nothing about it.

    There is strong evi-dence that electroma-gnetic radiation from cell phone towers is damaging to human (and animal) health. Over 100 scientists and physicians at Boston and Harvard Universities Schools of Public Health have called cell phone tow-ers a radiation hazard.

    The damage from radiation exposure

    accumulates over many years, but the breakdown in health happens only after all body defenses and repair mechanisms have been exhausted. For some people, short term effects from cell tower radiation expos-ure may include head-aches, sleep disorders, poor memory, mental excitation, confusion, anxiety, depression, appetite disturbance and listlessness. Suf-ficient information has not been given to those living and working near this proposed tower.

    A study performed by doctors in Ger-many have found that those living within 400 metres of a cell tower had a newly-diagnosed cancer rate three times higher than those who lived further away. Breast cancer top-ped the list, but can-cers of the prostate, pancreas, bowel, skin melanoma, lung and blood cancer were all increased. (Naila Study)

    I am surprised and shocked that our city planner would even consider this applica-tion. I am also curious

    to know the amount of money Alcatel-Lucent has enticed the pro-perty owner with.. Does the property owner live at the address of the proposed tower? What amount of money is worth putting our health at risk? We are talking about our downtown core where people live and work this is a very serious issue that will require responsible governing.

    Real estate in the area is at risk as no one with knowledge would buy near a cell tower. Tourism will be affec-ted as a 40-metre tower (132 ft) in the middle of our town does not beautify Sooke in any way. Our community has always attracted travelers because of its unique natural environ-ment. We have clean air beautiful views, gardens and an opportunity to show the world we are respectful and respon-sible people living here.

    I have lived in Sooke in the same house for over 32 years. I had a Teahouse and B&B in my home for 25 years. I have guest books with hundreds of signatu-

    res from people from all over the world with comments about how beautiful it is here. Two of my grandchild-ren live adjacent to our property within 50 metres of this disa-strous proposal. What chance has my one- month-old grandson against this radiation.

    Why should the people living and wor-king in downtown Sooke be put at risk?

    I request that coun-cil do what they can to stop this.

    Sylvia HallgrenSooke

    Ideas only being explored

    In the June 13 edi-tion, you reported that Shirley will be receiv-ing a CREST antenna, the Juan de Fuca office will be moving and the Royal Marine Search and Rescue is moving to East Sooke. I hope you will allow me to assure my constituents that these ideas are being explored and just that.

    I am sorry if I gave you the impression that these were a done

    FATHERS DAYSo I looked up the de nition of fatherhood in the

    dictionary and I found the word father between fathead and fathom, fatigue. I thought the dictionary was saying more than I really wanted to know. There are a lot of models

    out in society claiming the true example of fatherhood. The macho model, mask model or milk-toast model. But these men are often fatheads. Sometimes it is dif cult to fathom the responsibilities of being a father which can lead to fatigue.

    Our culture is suffering from a manhood identity crisis. Are there any alternatives to help men? We have to go no further than our Bible. In Gods Word, we nd Gods model for manhood. In fact, if men choose to follow Gods values for Biblical manhood, men are promised success and satisfaction in life. A mans greatness should be determined less by the value of their wealth than by the wealth of their values.

    The Apostle Paul gave special commendation to two men whose values modeled what God expects of men. The two

    men were Timothy and Epaphroditus. In the Letter to the Phillipians he comments on their COMPASSION, CONSISTENCY, COMMITMENT and COURAGE.

    Dads are you man enough to live sold out for God as you model godly values?

    Dry monthfor grad

    Here we are at the end of another school year, and for the gradu-ating students of EMCS, the beginning of their journey to make their mark in this world.

    It is truly something to celebrate, and some-thing in which they can take great pride. Insupport of this years EMCS graduating stu-dents, the Sooke RCMP have once againundertaken to abstain from the consump-tion of alcohol for the entire month of June,which coincides with the schools gradu-ation celebrations.

    In so doing, they have been joined by rep-resentatives from the Sooke Fire Department,

    the Sooke Ambulance Station and a growing number of community leaders and citizenswho care so much about the graduates that theywill make this gesture of support as well.

    More and more, this community is speakingup loudly to send the message that we sup-port the celebration of their accomplishmentswhile protecting the sanctity of their future and encouraging smart, healthy choices, includ-ing resisting the pres-sures to use alcohol asa means to celebrate.

    C o n g r a t u l a t i o n sgraduates of 2012! Work hard, make healthychoices, and there will be no limit to the suc-cess you can enjoy.

    Cpl. Scott HilderleyRCMP Drugs and Organized Crime

    Just walk away

    This is a gentle reminder to all those students who went

    through the D.A.R.E. program, learning toresist drugs and alco-hol and walking away. I plead with each of you to remember to walkaway so you may have the opportunity tobecome the best at whatever you choosein life. A challenge to all those adults and thosein authority, those chil-dren look to for guid-ance... lead by example.

    Have a sober, goodtime. All the best to all the graduating students.May life be exciting and challenging for youas you move forward

    NDP closed many mills

    B.C. NDP opposition MLAs keep blowing a gasket at the legislature in Victoria about raw log exports should cease and the logs should be milled here to create

    jobs for B.C. taxpayers. It would be appre-

    ciated if the NDP MLAs would do someresearch about previ-ous NDP governments,listen to the facts, and stop their regularshooting from the hip propaganda comments.

    I think taxpayers that have the NDP as theirMLAs deserve much bet-ter from them who are paid a yearly sal-ary of $101,859.

    The B.C. NDPs For-est Practices Code, with more than 4,500 regulations containedin 252 sections, 19 reg-ulations books and 38guide books, added at

    least $1 billion in costs to the forest indus-try for no public ben-efit, making the coastalindustry the highest cost producer of timberin the world. Between 1991 and 2001, 39 millsclosed because of the NDP provincial govern-ment, not the economy.

    NDP Premier GlenClark ordered the for-est industry to create21,000 new jobs over five years or lose timber-cutting rights 13,000 jobs disappeared.

  • Reflecting back a little more than a year...

    Successfully capping 2009 off with our fall (and very successful) musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat brought well deserved accolades to our incredibly talented director, Christine Mac Neil. Not only does she possess this amazing ability to direct, think on her feet and practically run a small city, she is also known as a tour de force on stage. Sadly Christine has taken her talent, her passion for the theatre and her family and moved away.

    We all know it takes more than one per-son to bring success to the stage... there is always so much work to do behind the scenes and one of the most demanding jobs is producing. Chris Lang seems to have this one under his belt. I cannot even begin to imagine the ideas that run through his head when he is devising a plan to market a show. Marketing requires artistic skill, patience, time, money (which means small budgets) and someone willing to climb ladders. Thank you to Wendy for put-ting together the tick-ets and keeping track of where, when and how the tickets are pro-duced, collected, sold, etc. The organization of that is so appreciated.

    Another producer who really knocked our socks off with this past successful fall musical production is Joe Sch-eubel. Confident and eager, Scheubel came

    to a board meeting in January, 2011 with a proposal and a vision. Having just success-fully closed two stage musicals, Joe pitched his proposal for Pirates of Penzance. It was

    very impressive. Not only did Joe produce a wonderfully suc-cessful show, but he graced us once again with his talent on the

    stage as the Pirate King.The positive reviews

    from the public, cast and crew were endless.

    Every year we have fantastic costumes, props, actors, singers, directors, stage crew and a whole lot of other talented people who come out to contribute to the success of the show. Someone who seems to work and work

    and work and does an amazing job every time, who also graces us with a performance or two is our sets/construc-tion master, Tim Pierce. Without any hesitation he is always there with hammer in one hand and paint brush in the other to help bring the artistic directors vision to the stage. Tim works very hard to save us as much money as possi-ble. He uses and reuses, is creative, builds beau-tiful sets, has incredible patience and is always successful in what he sets (no pun intended) out to accomplish.

    The Sooke Harbour Players Society board of directors is made up of a mixed breed of characters for sure! We have business own-ers, high school stu-dents, retirees, govern-ment workers, stay- at-home moms, etc.

    Our treasurer Deena Burnett really does deserve a medal. I can imagine the work that goes into taking care of our company financially and I am so very grateful for her knowledge and skill.

    A special thank you to Chris Robertson (Deenas husband), a.k.a. photographer...you are always there

    snapping photos and making sure we have memories in print.

    Having youth on any sort of arts board should be essential for any business to succeed, at least in my opinion. Taylor Caspersen (youth men-toring assistant) and Leah Kelley (secretary) are very important to

    us. The integrity, com-mitment, determina-tion, eagerness to gain more knowledge, respect, and shared pas-sion these two young people have for Sooke Harbour Players is staggering. Lessons to be learned here people.

    Leah, attending high school, maintaining an incredibly high GPA in school, volunteering

    with several organiza-tions, applying to elite universities, applying for scholarships and holding herself to a high standard are all quali-ties that make me want to be a better person.

    Then we have Taylor, always smiling, defi-nitely creative, a little quirky, full of wonder-ful ideas, and the first to offer help, over-the -moon talented musi-cian and song writer Taylor Caspersen.Tay-lor brings talent, thinks outside box and always looks at the bright side.

    So lets talk talent shall we... lets see... over the past few months one of our board mem-bers, after taking a bit of a break, has taken the stage by storm yet again. Lisa McCormack was just brilliant in Pirates of Penzance. Not only can this woman belt it out like nobodys business, but she has an incredible eye for costumes, sets, block-ing and directing. Lisa is also a wealth of artis-tic knowledge... acting, singing, dancing, coach-ing, character study-ing...the list goes on.

    What would a board be without more behind the scenes board mem-bers who step out

    from behind the scrim? Script library director, Linda Green-Abraham possessing many on the stage experiences brought those to her first directing debut Pirates of Penzance. With the support of gifted musical direc-tor Robyn Cathcart

    and experienced and talented mentoring director Marjorie Bask-erville, Linda was able to bring her vision to the stage and give the audience an amaz-ing, professionally produced, beautifully executed fall musical.

    Something we all have in common is his-tory. What is important is how that history is preserved and docu-mented. Sooke Har-bour Players has 30 years of history...WOW! I believe that history is sacred and so does our past president Mike Kelley. Mike has taken on the task of putting together the documen-

    tation and history of Sooke Harbour Players.

    I must say, paper-work isnt the only thing Mike is passion-ate about or really good at. Mike is also a won-derful president, actor, singer, and producer.

    Sooke Harbour Play-ers is made up of every-

    one and their spouses who contributed so much time, made com-promises, sacrifices, drove out of their way, changed work sched-ules, shared their talent, blood, sweat and tears, made food platters and beautiful cakes (Steph-anie Schuebel), sang in the chorus, helped back stage, helped fundraise and anyone or anything else I may have missed.

    Thats a wrap!

    Losing a child in a crowd of people in a shopping mall, and then seeing and hearing her screaming to get out of a car is every parents worst nightmare. Amber Alert? Perhaps too late. Smart phone alert? Not yet.

    Sooke resident Thomas Okuszko had such a dream about losing his little girl so did his wife.

    The possibility of such a horrific event happening is a very real possibility and knowing this Okuszko put together an idea to alert people in the vicinity of where a child went missing. He developed an smart phone application which alerts everyone who needs to know that a child has gone missing.

    What if you could alert dozens, hundreds or even thousands of people in the immediate vicinity of a missing child in a matter of seconds? asks Okuszko.

    Enter the HERO, a mobile application that allows parents or guard-ians to securely keep a

    profile of their children, including pictures and vital statistics online and on their smart phones. In under 30 seconds, HERO allows any guardian to send an alert if their child goes missing. Everyone on the network (heroes) who are within 10 kms will receive the alert.

    A HERO is anyone who is willing to upload the application and is willing to take a text message or photo and send it directly back to a guardian of a child, said Okuszko. The whole point is to share a childs profile with caregivers and a network empowering them to send an alert on my behalf. All I need to do is send a text message and Im a hero.

    When an alert is sent in your area, you will receive a notification on your phone. You can switch between the

    alert details and a map displaying where the alert was sent from. If you have information or details pertaining to an alert, you can send a reply message that only the alert sender will see. On all Alert screens, you will also have the option to quickly dial 911.

    He said during the alert updates can be sent describing what they are wearing,etc. It also shows you exactly where you are in relation to the parent.

    You are only alerted when you are relevant, he said.

    The application is free and available for the iPhone and any Android platform mobile device. No information is shared with any other companies.

    Guardians pay a one time fee of less than $4 to maintain child profiles and send alerts. Heroes can upgrade to a Guardian level.

    For now, the focus is to build a network.

    We are going to save a child this year, he stated.

    Okuszko comes from a finance background and moved to Sooke in

    2007 to take advantage of the opportunities to sail, surf and balance his work and life. When he became a father his attention shifted to his family. He spent eight months conceptualizing the HERO system and

    then collaborated with a team to create the HERO application.

    Its a Victoria company, a North American idea and a global purpose, said Okuszko.

    Young men face B&E charges

    Two young men are in police custody for an alleged break and enter in an East Sooke home on June 16 around 2 a.m.

    A woman returned to her residence on the 2000-block of Gil-lepsie Road to dis-cover that her home had been broken into.

    Two cellphones from the residence were missing, so the woman emailed a friend, who contacted the RCMP.

    Sooke RCMP arrived shortly afterwards with a police service dog, and located the two male suspects -- aged 16 and 18.

    We attended right away with a police dog, and we were able to apprehend two sus-pects who were attempt-ing to flee the area, said Staff Sgt. Steve Wright.

    The 16 year old faces charges of breaking and entering, and the 18 year old faces charges of assaulting a police offi-cer, resisting arrest and uttering death threats to a police officer.

    If you have any information about a crime thats been com-mitted call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line 1-800-222-TIPS (8477)

    Your information will be taken in strict-est confidence. Ano-nymity is protected and you never have to give your name.

    Tips can lead to cash rewards of up to $2,000.00, paid to tipsters on an anonymous basis.

    The Tall Tree Music Festival is coming back to Port Renfrew for its third year, and economic benefits are expected to follow.

    The event is not-for-profit, and proceeds after expenses will be given to the Ancient Forest Alliance for the boardwalk in Avatar Grove, Port Renfrew Chamber of Commerce and Port Renfrew rec-reation centre. In addi-tion to proceeds, each of the organizations received tickets to sell for their own profit.

    The summer music festival will also bring a huge economic spin off for the small town of less than 200 residents.

    Its huge for Port Ren-frew, said Rosie Bets-worth, Port Renfrew Chamber of Commerce president. Accom-modations fill up, and restaurants overflow.

    It just puts Port Renfrew on the map, she said.

    According to Mike Roma, media repre-sentative for Radio Contact, financial ben-efits to the community are part of the goal.

    Everybody thats a part of this really likes Port Renfrew and we feel that if were going to be growing that they should be ben-efiting as we grow.

    The line up fea-tures over 65 artists and performers -- 85 per cent of which hail from Victoria and

    some from Salt Spring Island. The remaining 15 per cent of perform-ers are coming from across Canada and U.S.

    The idea behind the Tall Tree Music Festi-val and its winter sis-ter event, the Song and Surf, is to encour-age younger genera-tions from Victoria to

    explore Port Renfrew. Roma said music and

    culture would serve as the initial draw to Port Renfrew, but he added, once they get out there they would real-ize how beautiful it is.

    He said the Tall Tree Music Festival was arranged so that it would grow slowly,

    with the first year cap-ping off ticket sales at 500, the following at 750 and this year at 1,500.

    Roma said 1,500 tickets for this years event was determined a manageable num-ber by staff and local law enforcement.

    So far, Roma deems the event a success.

    The greatest achieve-ment of the festival is the quality of people it brings out, he said. Weve been really fortu-nate, bringing out only nice and good people.

    The event will take place from June 21-24 at Browns Mountain in Port Renfrew. The event is 19+ and two

    pieces of government I.D. will be required to enter.

    Drinking and driving and negative energy will not be tolerated.

    Tickets are available at Coastline or online at the Royal & McPher-son Theatres Society: http://www.rmts.bc.ca/

    Chinook numbers look goodBetter than forecast

    abundance of spring\summer chinook leads to greater fish-ing opportunity for anglers in southern B.C.

    Anglers along the Juan De Fuca Strait and southern approaches to the Fraser River are rejoicing as DFO announced that the summer 5-2 Fraser Chi-nook stocks are return-ing at close to twice their forecast abundance.

    While anglers in Juan de Fuca Strait are currently fishing with restrictions designed to reduce their impact on struggling earlier timed Fraser chinook, the unexpected increase in abundance of the sum-mer fish has allowed for the removal of additional restrictions designed to offer even more protection to these later timed stocks.

    Anglers will now be permitted to retain one wild chinook of any size over 45 cm after June 15, and one under 67 cm. After July 15, normal limits apply. Store Hours: Mon.-Fri. 9:30am - 9:00 pm

    The Edward Milne community school garden is slowly flourishing year after year, and now has the green thumb touch of a professional gardener.

    After receiving PAC money, Candace Thompson, from Eagle Paws Organics in East Sooke, was hired to provide invaluable gardening tricks to students and staff.

    We were able to get some funding and weve hired a really well-known gardener, farmer, and shes given us advice and its really helped us, said Pia Carroll, chef and EMCS culinary arts teacher.

    One of the main features Thompson has introduced to the EMCS garden is drip watering systems. The drip lines overlay each garden bed, and have manual switches, allowing control of when and how much water is released.

    In the past, the garden has utilized automatic aerial spray heads, which overwatered some plants and fed weeds.

    The drip line is just concentrating on that specific area, so its not going to be feeding the weeds in here, Carroll said.

    The new watering system is only one of many tricks Thompson has passed on to Carroll, her students and her colleague, Marion

    French, also an EMCS culinary arts teacher.

    I can carry on with that information and show the students to come, Carroll said of her new found knowledge.

    The gardens greenhouse, which was erected last spring after the District of Sooke provided an $8,000 grant, will also see its first real crop of vegetables this year.

    This will be our first true year of having that greenhouse and really making it work, Carroll said. This year, weve got it looking really good, so that when we come back in the fall, well have many good plants for the winter.

    Due to conscientious gardening, vegetables like spinach and lettuce will come into fruition for next year, which is exactly on course with future goals.

    Carroll hopes that one day all greens served in the cafeteria like collard greens, mustard greens, spinach and lettuce will come from the garden, but at the same time said not everything will be supplied from EMCS soil.

    Weve learned what grows well, what we can do and fit in the time table, and whats pretty hearty, she said, adding the purpose is to encourage students to discover the importance of

    home-grown food. Were trying to instill

    that thread of carrying on growing your own food and how needed it is in our culture.

    EMCS culinary arts students and staff work in the garden consistently for about two hours a week.

    The garden has a myriad of vegetables ranging from squash, tomatoes, carrots, beans, peas, strawberries, lemon verbena, peppers and potatoes.

    Vegetables and fresh produce that will not keep over the summer will either be frozen for use in the fall or donated to different community o r g a n i z a t i o n s .

    If we can freeze it, we freeze it, Carroll said, adding fresh items are taken to the Crisis

    Centre, Sooke Food Bank and old age pensioners.

    Nothing ever goes to waste.

    Carroll said the garden has been a learning experience each year, since it began in 2004. The EMCS garden has the markings of an invested school effort, with the shed being constructed by the wood working department, and artwork that embellishes the fencing done by students.

    The garden was started with a $10,000 donation from Feast of Fields and has received monetary support from various other sources.

    Summer Service ChangesEffective June 25

    Victoria Regional Transit Commission

    During the summer months, there is less customer demand for transit service. Matching customer needs for the summer enables BC Transit to provide more service during the rest of the year.

    Most of the bus routes will have summer service changes. This includes seasonal cancellation of express and trips to secondary schools, UVic and Camosun.

    The following routes will not provide summer service:

  • We have RCAF recon-naissance planes and a historic photo album held by the family of Colonel S. C. Clegg, Commanding Offi-cer of the Dufferin & Haldimand Rifles Regi-ment at Otter Point army training camp in 1942 to thank, for a fasci-nating series of photos.

    The view here shows a little cove that many of us may recognize as the same beautiful cove that can be seen at the Point No Point resort today. Identify-ing the trestles, though, would likely have rep-resented a challenge for most readers.

    Looking closely at the span in the cen-ter, you can see the bridge trusses of the old Jacobs Creek bridge, the one that spelled death for six teenage Sooke students on December 7, 1946.

    The span closest to the coastline carried rolling stock for Island Logging Company, a

    railway logging out-fit that built an exten-sive railway system between Point No Point and Jordan River during the late 1920s and early 1930s. The upper span, built slightly to the west to accommodate a bend in Jacobs Creek, was a part of Island Loggings track system as well, and we understand there are still remnants of railway steel in the woods there. The com-panys steam locomo-tives included a Vul-can and a Shay, equip-

    ment that later went to the San Juan Valley.

    To the right of the photo, one can see a roadway and an open field; this appears

    to be part of an old orchard established by a pioneer called McQueen years earlier.

    The tragedy at Jacobs Creek continued to haunt the commu-nity for many years. Six boys, all students at the newly-opened Milnes Landing High School, and aged 14 to 18, were on the return jour-ney from a basketball game at Jordan River.

    It was winter, the road was graveled, the night was dark, the bridge was curved. The crosswise planking of the bridge was overlaid with two narrow length-wise strips of planking

    intended for the tires of vehicles to run on. Once the tires went off the top planks, a driver could find it difficult to avoid losing control and crashing through the wooden railing.

    None of us who were in the commu-nity have ever forgot-ten December 7, 1946.

  • A trip through the Sooke News Mirror time machine:

    June 18, 2008Sooke may get low

    cost housing Sooke may be get-

    ting its first affordable house unit and at a price which is truly affordable.

    Developer Angus Sutherland approached District of Sooke coun-cil at the regular meet-ing on June 9 to request an amendment to the covenant on Bylaw No. 365, Zoning Amend-ment Bylaw (270-44). Sutherland is develop-ing on Beaton Road and is proposing to develop Lot 52, the remaining multi-family site, as a small strata lot subdi-vision with 26 units. The current covenant restricted the number of units to 22. Suther-land was proposing to develop affordable housing in the $300,000 range.

    Council gave first and second reading to the bylaw which will allow Sutherland to develop a total of 140 units at final build-out in the subdivi-sion.

    June 17, 2009New governance

    model getting area

    supportAl Jones has a mis-

    sion. He, along with three mayors from the West Shore and Sooke, want to study a new form of regional gover-nance.

    Jones is the presi-dent of the Association of British Columbia Landowners and he, along with the mem-bers, has looked at and supports a policy paper produced by a group called the West Shore Study Group.

    The group concludes in their study paper that the West Shore will reach its highest poten-tial as an independent regional district sepa-rate from the Capital Regional District.

    Jones says there is strong grassroots sup-port across the West Shore for the idea.

    He said this conclu-sion came as he was door knocking during the recent provincial election.

    Timing, though, is crucial as the entire regional district is being asked to pay for Victorias sewage prob-lems, he says in a letter sent to the mayors of Langford, Colwood and sooke.

    He said residents along the West Shore

    shouldnt have to pay into Victorias sewer project. He said the project costs of $1.2 to $2 billion for the sys-tem were only guesses and where it stops, we dont know.

    June 23, 2010Fire trucks and

    phones on the way to Port Renfrew

    Mike Hicks wasnt in Port Renfrew but on the air at CFAX when the mayor of Sidney, Larry Cross, phoned into the radio program to announce that Port Renfrew won the ten-der for Sidneys old fire truck.

    Were just delighted that Sidney took a good look at our bid, said the Juan de Fuca regional director. Sid-ney wanted us to have this truck.

    Now Port Renfrew, along with its new fire hall, will have a full complement of trucks to deal with any fire.

    Hicks said the fire department in Port Renfrew lost their back up truck over the win-ter and it was not worth it to fix it.

    Its just nice to have a great community that can work together like this, said Hicks of the relationship between Sid-

    ney and Port Renfrew. June 22, 2011New fire truck on

    the way to Sooke

    Back in February of 2006, the District of Sooke decided to pur-chase a new aerial fire truck for $580,967 plus another $11,000 for additional small equip-ment for the truck.

    To pay for the cost of the new fire truck, each residential home owner and business would pay $14.35 per year for residential taxpayers and $104 per year for businesses.

    At the time, it was stated that the new aer-

    ial truck would replace Engine 204, which had reached the end of its 20-year life span. It did not meet pump-rating capacity requirements for 2005 and was in need of approximately $30,000 in repairs. Up to that point the District of Sooke had leased its fire apparatus which ran at about $4,800 per month.

    At the time it was also said that the approval to purchase vs leasing would have to pass through the alternate approval process and if money was borrowed it would have to be approved by the Inspec-

    tor of Municipalities. Taxpayers can now

    reach into their wal-lets once again as the district is purchasing another fire truck. This one is not new, it will be a used 2006 E-One

    Rescue Pumper with a price tag of $229,000 plus delivery charges. This new truck will once again replace Engine 204.

    Local pups walk in support of service dogs Sharron Ho Sooke News Mirror

    Broods of local dogs trekked through Whiffin Spit for the fifth annual Purina Walk for Dog Guides on June 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. to raise money for service dogs.

    The Sooke Harbour-side Lions organized the event, which is held in support of the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides -- an initia-tive that trains and sup-plies assistance dogs to Canadians with disabilities at no cost.

    Sooke Harbourside Lion, Susan Percival, said the Sooke dog walk raises between $2,000 to $3,000 each year through donations and pledges from residents.

    Percival said there are six or seven dog guides from the foun-dation currently serv-ing Sooke residents, one of them being a young, autistic boy.

    He was always up during the night and active during the night, she said. But since hes had his dog to sleep with, hes calm, relaxed, contented and sleeps all night.

    Dogs of all sizes and breeds were seen hap-pily ambling along the Spit, with tails-a-wagging. A majority of pups were adorned with orange Purina Dog Walk bandanas.

    One of the largest

    donations came from Geraldine McGuire, who managed to collect over $1,000 in pledges.

    Due to her great efforts, McGuires Burmese mountain dog, Teddy Bear, was dubbed the dog walk ambassador for the day.

    Over 250 different Lions Clubs across Canada also held Purina Walk for Dog Guides, and all funds will go towards the

    Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides to train, house and con-nect dogs with families.

    The foundation trains dogs for five dif-ferent services, includ-ing: canine vision, hear-ing ear, special skills, seizure response and autism assistance.

    There are two train-ing facilities in Breslau and Oakville, Ontario. The total cost of train-ing and placing a service

    dog is about $20,000. The program receives

    no government funding and is funded by dona-tions from service clubs, individuals, founda-tions and corporations.

    Donations can be made at: www.d o g g u i d e s . c o m /d o n a t e . h t m l

    SEAPARC STAR SEAPARC STAR of theof the WEEK WEEKIt was such a delight to talk with this weeks SEAPARC Star; four year old Jesiah Talman. He attends our Doodle Bugs Pre-school where his teachers all agree that he is a joy to have in the class. He likes coming to preschool because he has so much fun. He told us that his teachers like to play with the kids and he especially likes making pirate ships with them and having snack time. When we asked him what he is good at doing, Jesiah said NOT skating, but added that he is very good at riding his car down big hills in his yard, being helpful and he also said that he knows a lot about Mighty Machines. His Dad con rmed that Jesiah is well versed on the topic and can name the big machines from dump trucks to excavators. When hes at home; he enjoys playing with his friend Faylee and we are told that he helps out by making his bed, setting the table and tidying up the house. He told us that he really likes swimming and is looking forward to taking lessons. He loves visiting his Papa and riding on his machines with him, he tells us that Papa has 2 dump trucks, an excavator and a mini bobcat. When we asked Jesiah what he will be when he grows up, he told us in a matter of fact way I am going to be a man, just like my Dad, he then added that he will be a re ghter too (the one that drives the ladder truck). He was described as a friendly young man who loves life and is always willing to help. We look forward to seeing Jesiah here for our summer camps and are pleased to know that he will be returning to our Doodle Bugs Pre-school this fall. Thank you for being our SEAPARC Star Jesiah, you are a wonderful boy!

    Despite valiant efforts, the Districtplayoffs marked the end of the season for the Sooke U14 C girls fastball team on July15 to 17 at Art Morris Park.

    Sooke Minor Fastball hosted the District play-offs for the U14 C divi-sion of South Vancou-ver Island, which had 12 teams participate.The District playoffs for the U14 C had twoberths, meaning the top two teams wouldgo to Provincials.

    The winners were:Gold --- Langford Liz-

    ards.Silver -- SaltspringBronze -- Central

    Saanich Extremes According to Sandra

    Nelson, Sooke Minor Fastball president,the Sooke U14 C girls played their heartsout and lost by one run, thereby not advanc-

    ing.On June 16, the

    girls played againstSaltspring and lost 5-0. They continued on anddefeated Duncan 18-8.

    In the finals, the girls ended up losing against Langford, 10-9, takingthem out of the running for Provincials.

    It was right down to the last inning, the lasthit, said Tracey Foga-rty, U14 C team man-ager. Everybody was so exhausted, tired andcold.

    Although the girlsdidnt make it past Dis-tricts, Fogarty said theyhad a good season.

    The girls did have a good season and they played well and were proud of them.

    Nelson said for this particular series of Dis-trict playoffs, the teamsplayed a double loss knockout, meaning theloss of two games is the end of the season forthe respective team.

    There were two dif-

    ferent pools -- the main-stream and the losers pool, where if a teamlost a game they would have to work their wayback to the top.

    Which means a lotof the times you end up with a bunch of extra

    games, Nelson said. The Provincials for

    U14 C girls will be onJuly 6 to 8 in Rich-mond.

    Sooke will be host-ing the U19 C girls Pro-vincials on the same dates.

    According to Sandra Nelson, Sooke Minor Fastball president, the boys have been sell-ing firewood, holding Krispy Kreme dough-nut fundraisers and are planning a bottle drive.

    The parents are there to support, but its mostly the boys that are doing it, Nel-son said. Its good, it teaches them to give back to their commu-nity.

    There are currently 14 boys on the team, between the ages of 15 and 16, and the tourna-ment will cost approxi-mately $1,500 per fam-ily.

    The boys want to go pretty bad, Nelson said, adding the Cana-dian Westerns are the cream of the crop, in terms of tournaments.

    Its the top two teams in the province for the four western provinces, so thats where youre going to see really good ball, and the boys want to go because they want to play good ball.

    In order to contend for Westerns, the Ban-tam A boys must first declare their participa-tion in Provincials and Westerns -- which they

    have done. The teams that place first and sec-ond in Provincials, with a declaration for West-erns will advance.

    Nelson said she is certain Sookes boys will make the cut.

    Im confident that theyll go and theyll show very well at West-erns, having been there and watched the play, she said. I think our boys are more than

    capable of coming home with something around their necks.

    The assertion is not bravado, as the boys have been at the top of their game in recent weeks.

    At a Fleetwood tour-nament in Surrey, B.C. two weekends ago, the boys were gold winners in their division.

    Their main prize, however, was defeating

    one of their top compet-itors, Chilliwack, 4-2.

    The boys then defeated Langford on June 14, 13-5, after a season of very close games.

    Theyre starting to get their groove a bit, Nelson said. It comes at a very good time.

    Provincials for the Bantam A boys will be on July 6 to 8 in Richmond.

    Seahawks end seasonWe finished the 2012

    season with a hard fought Gold Cup play-off game against unde-feated high scoring Saanich Wolverines.

    Village Food Markets proud sponsors of Sea-hawks football reports a 20-0 loss Sunday.

    The Saanich teams 57 10-year-old track star running back was unstoppable by our defensive corp.

    Jared Steele, Finn Rogers, Spencer Logan, L.P. Gagnon, Luther White, Quinn Macdonald,Tyson Rob-inson all pitched in with lots of tackles.

    On offfence, Low-erison, had a 40-yard run and got tackled at the eight yard line. We moved the ball with sur-geon like precision for 50 yards and on both occassions couldnt punch it in.

    We also had a false whistle with Lowerison heading for the end-zone and the play was

    called dead. Caleb Car-rier took over at center and quarterback Steele ran an awesome varia-tion of plays, however, the well-coached and prepared Saanich team held us off the score-board.

    Logan had at least seven runs with four to five Saanich play-ers hanging on, fight-ing for hard to get gains -- helped by Malik Youla, Hunter Swift, Gagnon, Lowerison and Steele. Congratulations to Saanich and kudos to the Sooke boys who had a awesome hard playing sportsman-like season.

    See you all next spring and God bless.

    Sooke charter operator Bill Sargent deals with some fish action while guiding up at the North Island Lodge at Langara in the Haida Gwaii. Bill takes time out to do some relief guide work before the fishing season picks up in Sooke. Salmon fishing all along the coast seems to be a little slower than usual for this time of year.
