Ewan is her first child.The mayor hoped to return earlier from her leave of absence, but decided last week to stay with the original April return date.Im look-ing forward to returning and grateful for the time with my son, Tait told the News Mirror.Tait will return to a much different municipal hall, then when she left.There have been major personnel changes with the hiring of chief administra-tive officer Teresa Sullivan on Dec. 14 and the depar-ture of three senior manag-ers.Tait has been kept well informed of the inner work-ings of the municipality and council since she left, acting mayor Kerrie Reay said at a recent council meeting.This is Taits first term as mayor. She served on coun-cil previously.editor@sookenewsmirror.comMaja TaitProperty is on undeveloped land near Evergreen MallKevin LairdSooke News MirrorThe new Sooke branch of the Vancouver Island Regional Library could find a new home on land south of Evergreen Mall.At a news conference Monday, the District of Sooke announced the purchase of a parcel of land in the town centre for $1.42 million.The 5.26-acre property, bor-dered by Evergreen Mall on the south and Wadams Way on the north, is undeveloped.I see this as a great fit for a new library, and the learning and community gathering opportuni-ties that come with it, said acting mayor Kerrie Reay.The land was bought to build a library, but 80 per cent of the property will be available for other non-specified uses.The current library at 2065 Anna Marie Rd. is undersized for Sooke.This [new] facility will help us increase from 3,600 square feet to 10,000 square feet, which is much more appropriately sized for this community. It will also have room to grow over the next 25 years, said Jamie Anderson, director of library services for the Vancouver Island Regional Library.Construction of a new Sooke library has been discussed for years.Last year, John Phillips Park was considered as a possible location for the library, but was met with opposition by both the community and some members of council. Last fall, the Capital Regional District approved a loan of up to $6 million to build a facility. The library would be 10,000 square feet in size.The newest development meets most of the criteria required by the library board to fulfil the com-mitment to build a new library, Anderson said.The property was bought with district reserve funds. The reserve funds will be replenished following this years budget and five-year financial plan review, said Coun. Rick Kasper, who began his stint as acting mayor yesterday.See LIBRARY / 7LAND BOUGHT FOR NEW LIBRARYHome builderWildlife photographer Brian Rundle captured an Annas hummingbird collecting nest material from a cattail.

This is great news both for transit users and property owners in the region, said Susan Brice, chair of the Vic-toria Regional Transit Commission. We are pleased to approve a budget that maintains service levels and invests in improvements with no increased burden on the taxpayer.The transit commis-sion also approved $1.6 million to complete the southbound bus prior-ity lanes from Tolmie to Hillside avenues in downtown Victoria. The priority lanes are expected to improve travel times and increase efficiency and ridership.Additionally, in response to the pro-vincial governments recent announcement of increased transit funding, the commis-sion will review pos-sible options to imple-ment transit service expansion in 2017-2018 at its June meeting.Transit budget arrives with no tax increase2 I NEWS I SOOKENEWSMIRROR.COM WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 2016Publisher: Rod Sluggett publisher@sookenewsmirror.comEditor: Kevin Laird editor@sookenewsmirror.comReporter: Octavian Lacatusu news@sookenewsmirror.comAdvertising: sales@sookenewsmirror.comCirculation: circulation@sookenewsmirror.comClassifieds: Vicky Sluggett classifieds@sookenewsmirror.comOffice Manager: Deb Stolth office@sookenewsmirror.comHow to reach us 250.642.5752 fax: 250.642.4767office@sookenewsmirror.comSUPERSPECIALSPROUDLY SERVING SOOKE, METCHOSIN,JORDAN RIVER AND SOMBRIO !OUR LOCAL WEEKLYSPECIALS ARE BACKA food and art fundraiser64 pieces of original artSat March 5, 7-9pm Tickets $20 + taxVendors include:Stick in the Mud, Sooke 2 for 1 Pizza, Kelz Bakery, Natures Chef, Cape Links Coils and Sausage Company, Yesaki, Sheringham Distillery, West Coast Grill.Tickets available at Little Vienna Bakery, Stick in the Mud and West Coast Grill.www.sookecommunityarts.comPrestige Oceanfront ResortGrand Ballroom6929 West Coast Rd 778.425.0888For all your Insurance needsHome Business Farm AutoDon McCormickServing Sooke for over 35 years250-882-7411Looking for Investment or Retirement advice?Talk to me today.Debra Johnston, PFPFinancial PlannerInvestment and Retirement Planning250-661-6881debra.johnston@rbc.comFinancial planning services and investment advice are provided by Royal Mutual Funds Inc.

Just ask Fire Chief Steve Sorensen.Sooke firefighters answered 964 rescue, emergency medical and fire calls in 2015 a 33 per cent increase over the same period in 2014.The fire department also recorded the most number of fires (82), motor vehicle crashes (91) and medi-cal emer-gency calls (498) in its 102-year his-tory. Other categories recorded by dispatchers included 57 for hazardous conditions, 71 alarm bells and 122 burning complaints.With a corresponding drop of 25 per cent in volun-teer staffing it has made this year the busiest and most challenging on record, Sorensen said in a report to district council.In reviewing long term statistics the fire depart-ment has seen an increase in call volume of approxi-mately 10 per cent per year over the past 25-year report-ing period.And 2016 is beginning where 2015 left off. So far this year, the fire department has responded to about the same amount of calls in the first few months of 2016 as in the same period last year, Sorensen said.But help is on the way at least from a personnel per-spective.The Sooke Fire Rescue Service is training six new firefighters, in partnership with the Metchosin Fire Department. The rookie volunteer firefighters are expected to be on the job in mid-April.Sooke FD sees hikein fire callsSorensenOctavian LacatusuSooke New MirrorWest Coast Road is a vital travel artery. It connects Greater Victoria to the far-end reaches of Port Ren-frew and beyond, along it, count-less natural wonders await curi-ous visitors from far away. Wondrous as it may be, how-ever, the road is also exposed to the harsh terrain and natural and unnatural elements, such as seis-mic activity, the combined weight of hundreds of logging trucks, and the erosion by wind and sea. Such is the case of the stretch crossing King Creek, a place of childhood memory for Otter Point resident Al Wickheim. In the last decade, the road has become a cause of concern for Wickheim, who believes the bank at the bottom is being rapidly eroded by the tides, potentially risking the roads collapse. If we get a southeasterly com-ing through here at high tide, we could wake up in the morning and this will be gone, he said. Not only is the infrastructure going to go, but it will be one of those news stories where some-body drives into a big hole in the middle of the road.Way back a 100 years ago, there was no West Coast Road going through, just a grassy beach at the bottom. In the 1930s, when the road was built, a bridge was imple-mented to connect the west with the east. Wickheim recalled the bridge was rickety and didnt last long, so a culvert was later put in over King Creek, filling the rest with pit run gravel. This, Wickheim said, is where the trouble began.Theres no structural mate-rial there other than fill, he said, explaining the bank angle of repose a slope that a fluid will take naturally, something which gravel is known to do. The angle of repose to that slope will mean that three feet inwards, it will drop down to find its angle of repose, because thats what it wants to do. Itll keep eat-ing away at the bank. And it has. Wickheim pointed towards a former trail with steps that led from the top of a fire hydrant to the bottom of the beach; the trail is now gone, replaced with doz-ens of trees that have tilted down-wards, pulling more of the bank with them. Despite Wickheims concerns, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure sees the matter in a less severe light. At this time, there are no con-cerns regarding the safety of the travelling public on this section of Highway 14, said Sonia Lowe, a spokesperson for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.With the safety of the public our highest priority, ministry staff will continue to actively monitor the site and will undertake addi-tional technical work to develop a long-term solution. Lowe added that ministry staff is aware of concerns about the erosion at this location and has done a preliminary assessment.Still, Wickheim believes the mat-ter is not only concerning, but pre-ventable, at least at this point. All they have to do is ditch this down about six feet deep, and fill it with a couple of rows of big boul-ders to about halfway, he said.The fix here is not cheap, but its easy, and itll prevent a more serious problem.A Ministry engineer confirmed that a geo-tech will assess the road and determine what work needs to be done within the next two weeks. news@sookenewsmirror.comRoad erosion raises concernWest Coast Road falling victim to wind and sea, says Otter Point residentOctavian Lacatusu/Sooke News MirrorAl Wickheim points towards the slowly collapsing bank near King Creek, which he believes could threaten the stability of West Coast Road above.Recreational fishers have a daily limit of two chinook salmon per day, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans announced yesterday in a new management plan for an area between Cadboro and Sheringham points.The new rules run through June 17.DFO reminds the public that barbless hooks are required when fishing for salmon in tidal and non-tidal waters in B.C.Chinook is the largest species in the Pacific salmon.

Janelle Shoihet, media relations officer for E Division stated in an email the program has been under review since 2014, following the shooting of an unarmed member of the Canadian Forces.All regular members and staff were warned to be vigilant when in public, especially those in uniform, and a direc-tive was issued requiring that auxiliary constables working in uniform be under the direct supervision of [regular officers] equipped with all intervention tools.She added the focus of the directive was on the safety of their volunteers.There is consideration being given to changing the current auxiliary uniform as we recognize, while on duty they are identified as police officers, which puts them at risk of harm, she said.Auxiliary constables will continue to perform crime prevention, community engagement and other duties.The Sooke RCMP detachment has three auxiliary volunteers.We get good service from the auxil-iaries. Theyre solid members, and offer real assistance to our members, said Staff Sgt. Jeff McArthur.Its (the changes) not going to be a huge hit for us, but it will impact our operations.In a nationwide public online forum for auxiliary members, many reacted against the changes.I think most of us feel let down by the RCMP. Many of us have put in thousands (of) hours into training and on the front lines just to be punched in the gut by management, one post read in part.Thinking about this the tax base will have to go up for everyone. No more extra set of eyes for the RMs. That means the RCMP will have to hire a ton of recruits to fill in the holes and that is gonna be expensive, read another.The RCMP Auxiliary Constable pro-gram was first introduced in 1963 to enhance community policing and crime prevention initiatives.The programs are administered within 10 contract provinces and territories which does not include Ontario or Que-bec.editor@sookenewsmirror.comRCMP to reduce auxiliary police roleDistrict of Sooke council has approved $2,010 in annual spon-sorship funding to sev-eral non-profit organi-zations and events, and another $200 for tro-phies and awards.Groups receiving funding include: Sooke Lions Club, Sooke Fall Fair Society, Sooke Fine Arts Society, Sooke Community Choir, Edward Milne Commin-ity School grads, Sooke Firefighters Asso-ciation, Sooke Fam-ily Resource Society, Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce, West-coast Fly-fishers Asso-ciation and the Navy League of Canada.This years funding allocation is the same as last year, said acting corporate officer Tina Hansen, and is sepa-rate from the commu-nity grant program.Council hands out sponsorship moneySeeds galoreJennifer Morgan and daughter Lily picking out their favourites seeds at Seedy Saturday.

The animals, who were part of a small group of Roo-sevelt elk living in the area for the past couple of years, were found shot and stripped of their hides and flesh a week apart.Conservation officer Peter Pauwels, who found both elk, said the public expressed many concern over the incident, but no tips have come in yet. Under the circumstances, chances are the case will never be solved. Its really tough to solve these types of incidents because they likely happened at night and theres probably not that many people who have any knowledge to share with us, Pauwels said. No further activity has been seen in the area, though Pauwels said the small group of elk disap-peared from the area following the shootings. They may have moved off somewhere else, or scattered, we dont really know, but were hoping theyll make it through this. Pauwels said the chances of the same thing happen-ing in that area is less likely, as many locals who live out there or travel through are now watching more closely. Even if we dont catch anybody, at least we get them to stop coming back. The forestry company in the area is also going to keep its gates locked, as it will deter people from driv-ing up there at night, Pau-wels said.Its always going to be someone with a vehicle, and usually more than one person. Its a big job to pro-cess one of those animals, he said. If they can get past the gates, its easy, because they know theyre not going to run into anybody. The incident came as a major blow to local elk populations, which been making a slow come-back in the past 30 years after getting hunted nearly to extinc-tion a century ago. If anyone can provide any helpful information but wish to remain anonymous, they can call 1-877-952-7277.Information sought in elk poaching incidentFileRoosevelt elk population continues to be threatened.6 I NEWS I SOOKENEWSMIRROR.COM WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 20166660 Sooke Rd. 250-642-5229FundraisingGalaSaturday March 59am - 4pm All proceeds to theBC Cancer AgencyMammovanprogram Book your mammogram appointment now for March 21-24 MakeoversBook now HennaTattoos HandMassages Pony Rides in parking lot Skin CareConsults Interactive Mijo SPORTS exercise demo Republic of Vancouver Island/642 T-ShirtsLots of great prizes to be won!For more details, drop in and say hi!WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2, 2016 I NEWS I SOOKENEWSMIRROR.COM 7PRIME RIB DINNERIS BACK!Friday, March 4thSlow Roasted 12oz Prime Rib with Yorkshire Pudding, Mashed Potatoes and Vegetable of the Day $23952036 Shields RoadSooke 250-642-3314homeWELCOMEMike WilliamsNancy VieiraStacey ScharfBrendan HerlihySue DanielsManaging BrokerMichael DickClayton MorrisAlannah BrenanReal Estate& PropertyManagement#26716 west coast road *cedar grove centre* 250-642-3240www.pembertonholmes.com pembertonholmessooke@shaw.caFOR RENTLOWER 7139 JACKSONS PLACE$1100 + $250 utilities-available now(hydro/water/gas/garbage/sat TV/internet included)Bright open concept furnished 2 bdrm, own laundry, gas fi replace.

V9Z 0A3 | Phone: 250-642-5752 | Web: sookenewsmirror.comThey Said ItOur ViewDistrict of Sooke council, in particular acting mayor Kerrie Reay, is feeling the rathe of some residents over a decision to limit the right to speak at council and committee of the whole meetings.The rule limits speakers to only discuss items that are on the agenda.The irony is that these rules were brought in as a procedural bylaw back in 2007, long before Reay was elected to council, and have been used haphazardly by different councils ever since.Reay was so concerned about the bylaw that she requested and received a legal opinion on it. The opinion backed her view on the limits of the right to speak on any issue before council.Its councils responsibility as a whole, not just the acting mayor, to ensure we follow the procedural bylaw, Reay told the News Mirror last week.True.Council allows a public comment period of two minutes per person. Only 10 minutes is allowed for all comments. Delegations are allowed five minutes.Yet there have been many cases where public comments and delegations have gone well over their time. In December, one public speaker spoke for 17 minutes and another for 15 minutes. It resulted in some delegations waiting more than two hours to make their presentation to council.All of this now falls back at council to come up with a plan to initiate community debate.The simplest solution is to change the procedural bylaw and allow more speakers and more time. Other ideas could be to host town hall meetings with council, to embrace new technologies, coffee with the mayor, even a council walkabout town.The last thing council wants to do is cut off debate and not know what is on the minds of its electorate. Such a problem could stop the town from moving forward. And nobody wants that.We want to hear from you.

Jeff McArthur, Sooke RCMP Page 4Dr. Christine Hall, ER physician Page 29Diane BernardGuest CommentHistory was made last week when acting mayor Kerry Reay denied a citizen, me, the right to speak to council. Theres no record in the municipalitys past 16 years when a resident is denied delegation, and theres no memory of this, under the previous Sooke Electoral Area. Whats the reason for stopping me? My topics were hardly outrageous: Optics on District of Sooke 2015-16 strategic plans, governance, budgets ho hum stuff for most readers. Were there administrative reasons? No, I submitted my form early and there was space on the agenda. In case I had some evil plot up my sleeve to embarrass council, Reay had the chief administrative officer grill me on exactly what I would say well, I said, my questions about the strategic plan related to whats next for Sookes core infrastructure and for the budget and where are we in the 2016 process. Incredulously, the CAOs response was insufficient and down came the heavy hand of bylaw 422.23.4. We should all be concerned when our elected council, who works on our behalf, denies free speech. Remember, we just turfed a federal government in part for such strong-arm tactics. So whats going on when we cant speak to council? A psychologist might venture these are the tactics of the fearful or the insecure.It didnt seem this way in 2015, and I wonder how council has changed.In 2015, we saw forward momentum into the 21st century of a working council with elected Mayor Maja Tait: improved core infrastructure; with productive, open public meetings; and strategic planning with a budget to protect the taxpayer. Its 2016 and council doesnt look so healthy. The public is raising alarm bells. Are we drifting back to old habits of who-you-know, meetings by invitation and favours? Theres a sense of disapproval if the public asks about staffing and hiring practices. And incredulousness, if you ask about councils upcoming work plans or budgets. Clearly the difference is the absence of our elected Mayor Maja Tait, who is on maternity leave. The 2015 strengths were under her leadership. The weakness we see in early 2016 indicates council is in the midst of upheaval. Theres a lot more at stake here. This municipality is young, small and without a strong tax base. There are no budget lines or dollars for petty politics. Its all too obvious. Council misses Tait and is in need of her brand of leadership.Until our mayor returns, council needs to focus on the next steps of strategic planning, keep the corporate systems effective and stay within budget. And it should include working with the public and being open to citizens consultation.Diane Bernard is a Sooke resident and former regional district director.A sense of insecurity in absence of

We wish to present the facts. SVIEDA is a regional forum for business collaboration. It remains committed to bringing together private and public sectors to help enhance and grow the regional economy and create more well-paying jobs that sustain families.Contrary to claim that 50 per cent of the board would have municipal representation, there are no municipal representatives on the board. As promised, the nine directors represent the business community. We are an experienced, industry-led board offering proven business expertise, and our specializations reflect divergent interests from across the South Island region.The article also suggests that the City of Colwood may be reconsidering its participation. This is also untrue.The vision for SVIEDA is to have the investment support of all 13 municipalities and the business community. As we move forward today, we are proud to be working with 10 willing municipal partners, one First Nation community, one not-for-profit organization, all three regional post -secondary institutions, and 11 private sector enterprises and business associations. The door will always be open for the District of Sooke, the City of Langford and Metchosin to join us. South Vancouver Island Economic Development Association Board of DirectorsSooke firefighters take quick actionKudos to the Sooke Fire Rescue Service for its quick response on Feb. 21. Firefighters quickly arrived on scene when a blaze broke out just north of Arranwood Drive in the Woodland Creek area, where a collection of derelict buildings is located. For the most part, only foundations, decayed outbuildings, and assorted wood debris are located there, but theyre clustered in a stand of wood and scrub brush near cole Poirier Elementary School. Even in wet conditions it seemed to me that there was good potential for the black, ugly fire to spread toward the school or even in the nearby neighborhood, some of which is still in the development stage. Can there be any doubt the fire was set by human hands?John CampbellSookeLetters should not exceed 300 words in length.

Pesticides have been around for 70 years, yet weeds, pests and diseases that attack plants have, if anything, become worse because they have become resistant to all these chemicals, much like the bacterial super bugs have become resistant to antibiotics (do we see a pattern here?). This means you have to spray more often using more toxic chemicals every year. Pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are responsible for adding extra estrogen-like chemicals to our bodies. Many cause gene mutations or are neuro (brain) toxins.2,4-D, a weed killer found in many herbicides and lawn fertilizers, was a major component in Agent Orange, used to defoliate Vietnam 50 years ago and is still, three generations later, producing horrific birth defects. Studies show this chemical is linked to increases in cancer, birth defects, reproductive difficulties, aggressive behaviour and nervous system damage. Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, once touted as safe because it kills bacteria, not humans, has been shown to be anything but. As a killer of bacteria, it is deadly to the bacteria in the soil and in our gut. Soil bacteria keep the soil free of pathogens such as e-coli and are necessary for the uptake of minerals into crops. The bacteria that live in our gut keep us free of pathogens and facilitate uptake of our nutrients. When you put these chemicals on your lawn, everyone, including pets, neighbors gathered for a barbecue and little children running around are exposing themselves to serious toxins. All it takes are minute amounts to disrupt the delicate balance of the body. There are many non-toxic alternatives to pesticides and herbicides available and myriads of websites, books and farmers in the community that can teach us about them. Not using household pesticides is a personal decision that can make a big difference in the increasingly heavy toxin burden faced by us all. Jo PhillipsOtter PointRoundabout rules ignoredDrivers need to use their signals in the new Sooke roundabout. Many times already Ive had a close call because people dont understand the rules or dont care. An example? Im going westbound straight though and another vehicle is going eastbound in the circle. My thought is that their going straight though as well (towards Victoria) because their not using a left signal. Although they have the right of way in the roundabout I have no idea their intention is going into the village. Basically, I shouldnt have to stop if they dont signal. Rod JohnstonSookeAttacks on social media Re: Reay lashes out at social media conduct (News, Feb. 24)Congratulations are in order for acting mayor Kerrie Reay regarding the stand she took at the last council meeting concerning the vicious and unprovoked attacks directed at council in general and the acting mayor specifically through social media.We are to assume that there was something sinister about the chief administrative officer appointing a former associate of hers to the new position director of corporate services, according to social media critics.The critics should understand that good business practice dictates that you hire the best people available irrespective of whom they may or may not know.But why would anyone assume that these shadowy critics know anything about business practices?Sooke taxpayers were poorly served in the past as we all remember from the first few weeks of former mayor Wendal Milnes term in office. Does anyone remember finance reports that did not add up or the missing cellphones?It took close to three months with several meetings a week to straighten up Sookes finances.Mayor Milne, to his credit, started the process of accountability and openness, however, he opted out of a second term in office and left it to Mayor Maja Taits administration to complete the process.D.R.

We can make a list of what we can accomplish. For some of us it could not be possible but for some this season is important. It is important for us to commit ourselves in this important Christian season maybe we can pay more attention to our prayers and do daily prayers, or we can give a donation to a charity. Or perhaps we can go to the street and help some one who is homeless with clothes or a descent meal. These are good things to do during lent, but we diminished the effect on our spiritual life believing that they are personal actions. Living the season of lent is to recognize the meaning of it. Lent is the season to give an answer to the grace of God; we can start lent by asking the Lord to forgive our sins.Lent is the time to take moments of our day to listen to God, to ask him what he wants from us, and answer his grace.Any discipline that we use in this season praying, fasting, and almsgiving will be a way to reencounter with God and he will open our hearts to His grace.Lord God, the well-spring of life, pour into our hearts the living water of your graceRev.

Manuel Quimper when he entered the harbour aboard the Princesa Real. This ship was originally the British vessel Princess Royal, and had been captured by Spain as these countries vied for the trade in sea otter skins and for an entrance they hoped would lead them to the Northwest Passage.Note the contrast in the 1790 chart which was given us by the Naval Academy in Madrid, with the recent aerial view which shows the alteration done to Whiffin Spit by both the forces of nature and by the intrusions of man.In the spits earlier history, legends tell that it was a lookout post for the TSou-ke nation before it became an industrial site, with fishtraps pilings from Sooke Harbour Fishing and Packing Company stored annually in crisscrossed stacks for a half-century. In the 1920s the spit also accommodated a fish reduction plant run by the Standfast Bible students. Near the far end, a small fruit-tree-surrounded cabin housed a retired whaler until the 1940s; traces of the fruit trees may still be seen, in amongst the thickets of wild roses.While museum records show that reinforcement work has been done on the spit since 1907, an exceptionally large project was undertaken to restore a breach and install a rock breakwater in 1995. It was Bob Clark, regional director of that day and his friend Eric Butler, who took charge of carrying out the major repair. Today dozens of walkers enjoy a stroll along the almost-mile-long Spit every day, in all kinds of weather, and its considered one of Sookes special treasures.Elida Peers is the historian of Sooke Region Museum.One of the perks of keeping a foot in the journalism pool is the occasional assignment you think will be a snooze fest that turns into a wakeup call.I had the pleasure of spending a few moments with a former long-time Sooke resident on her 100th birthday last week, and would like to think I came away a better person from the experience.At my age, any trip to an assisted care facility can be a tad disconcerting, considering I may wind up in one of the rooms in the (hopefully) distant future. A brief chat with Bessies son, Reg, put things in a different perspective, considering hes got at least 15 years on me. I was blown away when he told me how his moms parents had made the journey from Saskatchewan to B.C. in a covered wagon.I know next to nothing about genetics, but the fact Bessies sister made it to the century mark as well, and both her brothers carried on well into their 90s got me thinking that family tree has some pretty fruitful roots. When he mentioned Bessies mom lived to a 107, I came away convinced theres definitely more than a little cause and effect going on in that gene pool.Which brings us back to Bessie, who seemed in more control of her faculties than, with the proper apologies intended, a lot of people I call good friends. When I asked her what the key to longevity was, she said simply, without hesitation, Take it one day at a time. When someone else enquired about what was the biggest change shes seen in her years on this planet, her reply resonated in a way that still has me reflecting on what she had to say.She said people used to be content to stay at home, but now everyone seems to rush from here to there all the time without ever stopping long enough to look at each other. In other words, slow down, share a smile and enjoy the immediacy of the moment without worrying about comes next. Its solid advice as we continue along our journey to the inevitable end that awaits us all, and something Ill make a concerted effort to live by.As someone who used to look forward to my golden years purely for the improvements in pharmaceuticals and advances in video games, bless you, Bessie, for giving me much more to think about, courtesy of the few words we got to share.Rick Stiebel is a Sooke resident and semi-retired journalist.Sooke Region MuseumA picture of Whiffin Spit today and a Spanish naval chart from 1790.

Washington for a big field trip. They spent the whole day there on fresh snow and had a blast skiing and snowboarding all over the hill. After the day was done, they got back on the bus and had a special dinner and arrived home a few hours later. Thank you Mrs. Wilkie for all your help organiz-ing this awesome event, and to all the chaperons for all their hard work too.On Feb. 24, we wore our pink shirts to support anti-bullying in all of our public schools. Students and staff were encouraged to wear pink and even do an extra act of kindness that day. On Thursday (Feb. 25) JMS presented the Bring on Spring dance. It ran from 6:30 until 8:30 p.m. in the gym.Thank you for reading and as always; People Run to Be Here, So Run to Read Us.A little poem to get you in the spring mood:FlowersRoses, tulips, flowers in general beauty and Divine different colors trying to blossom. If you dont let them grow then youll never Know. Find the beauty in which they glow. Autumn they fall spring they grow which leaves Red and yellow.Journey GemsTrips, pink shirts and dances for SpringWhile most of the country is busy shovelling snow, the Greater Victoria area is busy boasting about all its mild cli-mate has to offer this time of year. Hoping to use some of that good-natured ribbing to their advantage, a number of organi-zations, including Tourism Vic-toria, the Greater Victoria Cham-ber of Commerce, Butchart Gardens and Gardens British Columbia, have banded together to promote tourism in the region including Sooke while high-lighting some beautiful blooms.With more than 17 billion blooms counted in 2015, the Flower Count offers residents a chance to get outside and helps promote the region during a sea-son that isnt typically known to draw in large crowds of tourists. It just gets everybody involved It adds to tourism, it helps the economy and it adds to business, said Al Hasham, Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce chair Al Hasham. In its 41st year, the Flower Count officially runs from March 3 to 9, with the award for Bloom-ingest Community going to the municipality that counts the most blooms. Its a title the City of Colwood has claimed for the past two years and the City is looking for a three-peat said Mayor Carol Hamilton. We all benefit (from) the fun events that bring community and people outside, she said. Its not just about tourism, said Brian White, Royal Roads University School of Tourism and Hospitality director.He said the Flower Count is also about getting residents involved and taking pride in their community. All the things you see around you reflect our heritage, he said. Its a symbol of the life we lived here gardens are an icon.For more information on how to get involved, please go online to flowercount.ca.Stop and count all theflowers ... no, seriouslyFriendly competition promotes community and heritageDont miss it Q EVENT: Flower Count Q WHEN: March 3 to 9Q WHERE: Greater Victoria Area Q INFO: 250-414-6971blackpress.caAndrew Franklin, Director of Digital Development is pleased to announce the appointment of Laura Baziuk as B.C.

Its a kid taxi, a grocery hauler, or the grand touring champion of your spring break road trip. At the end of the day though, the modern car is no more enticing than a router, and as valu-able as a disposable camera.In other words, its just a machine. Designed to serve, break, and conse-quently be recycled into a newer and newer incarnate of itself. But has it always been this way? Roll the clock back 60 years ago, and youll find that a motor car had a per-sonality, character, something that one would call a soul. There are many who seek that pure breed of ancient machine, where no electronic wizardry drives a car, just blood and sweat and good old fash-ioned know-how. Sookie Gordon Stewart is one of those car guys who loves the classic gurgle of a V8 engine, and a straight-up rod from the 1930s. In fact, hes got two. A coupe and a pickup, both 1935 models. The coupe, a 1935 Ford two-door Coach Fastback was literally scrap when Stewart first found it. Lets just say that in the shape its in now, its worth a little bit more than that. I built them both from the ground up. They said theyre junk, dont even attempt it. Well, there it is, Stewart chuckled. In total, it took about four years to build each one of them. Did most of the work himself, apart from the paint and some of the bodywork. Hes used to this kind of thing, having built about a dozen cars in his lifetime. In his youth, he built a low-slung Model T coupe hot rod in his base-ment; to the point that it was so big and functional, that in order to get it out, he had to take it apart and rebuild it outside the basement, piece by piece.These cars are the last two hell build though, or as he says, the last kick at the can. And without doubt, both machines are distinctive from one another. The coupe, which is powered by a modern fuel-injected Chevy 350 V8 and automatic transmission, has all the amenities of what youd call a luxury cruiser, from tilt steering, air conditioning, cruise control, power seats, power windows, and interior trim that would rival a Mercedes S-Class. The other, a tastefully wood-decked red pickup, is less equipped, but no doubt a combination of Travolta-like good looks and undeniable practical-ity. Inside this bad boy lies another Chevy V8, a rare 400 cu. in. block from a 76 truck. Since hes built cars, Stewart said that one thing never changed: you gotta have patience. You gotta know when to quit, think about it for a while and come back.Stewart is also behind numerous classic car shows, both in Sooke and Greater Victoria Region. At the Sooke classic car show this spring, he plans to bring both his hot rods down and continue sharing his passion for the machines of yesteryear that many of us have grown to love and appreci-ate.Octavian Lacatusu/Sooke News MirrorGordon Stewart in his garage (which he calls the man cave) standing by his two classic Fords, the coupe up top and the truck at the bottom.

The Victoria Royals mascot was on hand for a tutorial and photo shoot to promote the second annual Hockey for Hospitals campaign. When the local hockey team seeks to slay the Vancouver Giants March 5, the goal is to raise $27,000 for three specialized electric stretchers for the Victoria Gen-eral and Royal Jubilee Hospital emergency departments. Last year, the emer-gency departments at Victoria General and Royal Jubilee hospi-tals helped more than 108,000 people, includ-ing more than 14,000 children, said Dr. Christine Hall. Many of these patients will need a stretcher, and its com-forting to know our hospitals will have the most advanced equipment. We are thrilled to be work-ing with the Royals again this year. When community members work together to help our hospitals the out-come always benefits patients.Joined by Cam Hope, Victoria Royals presi-dent and GM, Darren Parker, Royals senior VP of sales and market-ing, Melanie Mahlman, executive director Vic-toria Hospitals Founda-tion and Dr. Christine Hall of Island Health, Marty helped demon-strate the weighing fea-ture of the high-tech electric stretchers. In trauma and critical situations medications are given based on weight. Once Martys once-over was com-plete, he learned a little about splinting. The Victoria Royals are proud to help raise funds for our local hos-pitals so that patients can be cared for with the best equipment available. Its gratifying to see the community and our fans step up and support our hos-pitals on game night, Hope said. These stretchers are going to make a dif-ference to many people you never know when youll find yourself in the emergency room.Last years inaugu-ral Hockey for Hospi-tals fans raised $25,000 for three transport-able vital signs moni-tors for the ER at Vic-toria General Hospital.The Royals face the Giants at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Cen-tre on March 5.

Larger and more plentiful spring and chinook salmon are being landed on a regular basis, par-tially due to better weather conditions. A few winter salmon over 10 pounds were reported and a nice 15-pound chinook weighed in at the local tackle store. The Sooke Harbour mouth and Trailer Park area have been popular areas to troll in 100 to 140 feet of water, with the gear right on the bottom. Small spoons, like White Lightning, Coho Killer and anchovy trolled in bright glow teaser heads have been working well. Halibut fishing has been spotty, probably due to weather, tides and amount of bait in the area. A halibut we landed last Saturday had five her-ring in its stomach, which is a great sign.Herring, mackerel, salmon bellies and octopus are always good baits to try for halibut in our area. Crabbing has been excellent, fishers are report-ing traps dropped in the harbour as being full of large male Dungeness crabs. Our boats have been averaging five to six keeper Dungeness crabs per outing over the last week. This is a great time of year to get out and get yourself some fresh seafood while enjoying the Sooke coast line on some flat calm water.Ron Neitsch is the owner-operator of 2 Reel Fish-ing Adventures, based in Sooke.Salmon fishing makes solid comebackEdward Milne Community School is gearing up for a Grad Fashion Show.

Cancer Agencys latest mammogram van (or mammovan) delayed a trip up to Bella Bella and came to Sooke instead last fall, Jodie Lacombe was stoked to get a checkup by way of the best cancer-detection technology around. But the routine check last October was more than just an experience it was a moment that changed Lacombes life forever, as just in a matter of minutes, the mammogram picked up something unusual. Within two weeks, she was at the hospital for an ultrasound and a core biopsy, and 10 days later, she had the results. In December, she had her first surgery, prompting the removal of a two-centimetre lump and three lymph nodes from her breast. Before this process even began, Lacombe, a cosmetics specialist at Shoppers Drug Mart in Sooke, said she had no idea what was happening, and what may have potentially happened to her if it wasnt for the mammovans scans. There were no visible signs, nothing, so theres your proof that [mammograms] work, she said, adding that if the cancer was left unchecked, the story now would be very different. Thats how quick they can turn it around, but early detection is key. Lacombes path to recovery begins now, as she is scheduled to start her chemotherapy, which is done every two weeks for four months. Given her journey, shes willing to share her story, hoping to encourage every other woman to get herself checked out, regardless of how uncomfortable the idea may seem. Dont die of embarrassment. See a doctor, get a checkup, she said.The B.C. Cancer Agencys mammogram all-digital vans, three of which now operate in B.C., are very different from more traditional scanning methods, which typically take weeks, even months to get information processed and get it to a doctors office. The vehicle can deploy virtually anywhere, even provide a waiting room for up to five people at a time. Now, it can take minutes to potentially save someones life. Only half the people that are eligible are getting checked in B.C., so there are people dying of breast cancer that dont have to die, because they couldve been checked, Lacombe said. Ill be totally fine, because they caught it early.Lacombes experience is also at the forefront of the upcoming fundraising gala event this Saturday (March 5), held in the Evergreen Mall parking lot, which is set to raise funds for the B.C. Cancer Agencys mammovan program. Activities will include pony rides, tattoos, makeovers, hand massages and skin care consulting. We thought, lets take something bad, turn it into something good. Tell Jodies story, and get as many people involved as we can so we can keep these vans on the road to help out more people, said Marcus Farmer, manager at Shoppers Drug Mart in Sooke. Lets just remind everybody, and tell those who dont know, that the best chance for a successful treatment of any cancer diagnosis is early detection.The actual mammogram screenings will begin on March 21 in Sooke and run until March 24. Women over 40 dont require a doctors referral, they just need to make an appointment. The visit, which usually takes a few minutes, is free, as it is covered under MSP. Lacombe hopes both the gala and the mammovans arrival in town later this month will inspire more women to let go of their fears and get a checkup. For more info on the B.C.

Until now he has existed only as a caricature drawn and defined by others: victim, killer, child prisoner, detainee, political pawn, terrorist and pacifist. Based on the book by journalist Michelle Sheph-ard, who also co-directed the film with Patrick Reed, the movie chronicles Khadrs life from his arrival in Afghanistan from Canada with his family through his capture when he was 15 to his time in Guantanamo Bay Prison where he underwent hundreds of hours of interrogation and coercive techniques and finally to his release on bail in May of 2015 in Edmonton. The film probes Khadrs case from every angle with interviews with American soldiers, prison guards, prison mates and his lawyer. In the words of the filmmakers: We had a simple goal in making this documentary. We wanted to tell his story by allowing him to tell his story... it was not a simple film to make.Guantanamos Child was rated one of the 10 best Canadian documentaries of 2015 by Vancou-vers Cinematheque. The film will be screened, as usual, from7-9 p.m. in the Edward Milne Community School theatre, admission is by donation.
