In the distance one can see the lights from the soccer field at Fred MIlne Park.Octavian LacatusuSooke News MirrorA Notice of Motion was brought forward by Coun-cillor Kerrie Reay to find a location for the new Vancou-ver Island Regional Library (VIRL) in Sooke - with emphasis on reconsidering the John Phillips Memorial Park (JPMP) location. The matter was brought back into light at Monday nights council meeting because the current VIRL library (located on Anna Marie Road) is already at maximum capacity - and that further delay on mak-ing a final decision on the librarys new location may result in Sooke not having a new library until 2020 or later. According to Reays report, Sooke was one of the first jurisdictions to express desire to proceed, putting the District of Sooke on top of VIRLs consoli-dated library list. In 2012, VIRL conducted a commu-nity consultation in Sooke to identify a parcel of land for the library.But this was delayed by the municipality again. For the past two years, the district has been unable to identify a parcel of land for its location, Reay said. The suggested JPMP loca-tion- which has been subject to intense public discussion since 2010 due to sites his-tory and cultural signifi-cance to Sooke - was met with opposition from mem-bers of the public as well as councillors Brenda Parkin-son and Ebony Logins. There is so much oppo-sition to that location, and I cant support it either, just because I cant get that parkland back; once its gone, its gone, Logins said. Unless the district has a plan around bringing in parkland in other down-town locations, giving up that space doesnt sit right with me.A final decision has been in limbo for two years; with discussions from coun-cil considering multiple options that have either been too small, too costly, or just not wanted by the public. Even a possible land swap with the Lions was brought up at one point, though the piece of prop-erty was just too small. We even thought to go to developers and owners of land who want to grow their projects and do business, but that proved to be too expensive, said Councillor Rick Kasper. With public focus and opposition remaining firm on protecting the John Phil-lips Park location, Kasper noted a final decision still needs to be made soon.The emotional record on what we decide to do with that piece of land is a bit long in tooth, Kasper said. If we show some leader-ship in conjunction with the VIRL, perhaps well see a brand-new facility there in less than two years. Other-wise, well be here in 2020 going around in circles over and over. Mayor Maja Tait noted another path to take would be setting the focus on the town centre - and perhaps fitting the new library into those set of plans. I would like us to look at the options; would a devel-oper be interested in provid-ing the land as an amenity instead of the other things are always looking at? Tait said. I just struggle with us putting a building outside the town centre when thats been an ongoing priority for this council.For the time being council will currently hold out on Reays motion to progress with the JPMP location of the new library, with a deci-sion to be considered in the next council report on the matter.Council discusses location for a new library 250.642.6361Sooke is Selling!2015 Sooke Home Sales: 452014 Sooke Home Sales: 300TAMMI DIMOCKPersonal Real Estate Corp.2 www.sookenewsmirror.com WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11, 2015 - SOOKE NEWS MIRROR2 www.sookenewsmirror.com Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - SOOKE NEWS MIRRORPolice BeatSooke RCMP and West Shore RCMP are actively investigating a series of fraudulent pur-chases, using fake $50 Canadian bills reported between March 1 and March 3, 2015 in Lang-ford and Sooke.In those four occur-rences, the same fake $50 bill with the same serial number (AHT9461314) was passed. The seized coun-terfeit bill in Sooke appears to have the transparent holograph window from an actual $5 bill, carefully cut out and taped on to the counterfeit 50 dollar bill portion. said S/Sgt. Jeff McArthur of Sooke Detachment.- The first incidents occurred at Fairway Market in Langford (March 1) and Wendys restaurant (March 1)- The second inci-dents occurred at West-ern Foods and Costco in Langford (March 3) - The last reported incident occurred at Western Foods in Sooke (March 3).West Shore RCMP Financial Crime inves-tigator is also assist-ing with the investiga-tion.

Prior to that she lived in the Cowichan Valley and Vancouver. Previously she had a successful career as a television journalist, a competitive athlete, and spent time over-seas as an elite figure skating coach. Conservatives in Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke have an impor-tant decision to make on March 21, stated Kerrie Reay, Past Presi-dent of the local Con-servative Riding Asso-ciation. They need and deserve someone with experience, passion and commitment to provide strong repre-sentation in the federal election and Shari has demonstrated she has those qualities along with the work ethic required to be a great MP.processThis and ThaTSubmitted photoGolden Gavel WinnersTania Ehman and suzanne Viau placed second and third respectively in this years Golden Gavel competition in Victoria.

These priorities have been the primary guidance for the 2015 2019 Five Year Financial Plan. In the 2014 2015 Corporate Strategic Plan, council identified four strategic priori-ties: Fiscal Responsibil-ity, Town Centre, Eco-nomic Revitalization, Community Planning. The 2015 budget inte-grates each of these pri-orities. Fiscal Responsibil-ity: The District will strive towards long-term financial sustain-ability. It will prepare for the future by ensur-ing adequate contribu-tions are made towards required long-term capital infrastructure needs while living within current means. The 2015 budget maintains a 2.49 per cent tax increase. This increase includes con-tractually obligated increases to expendi-tures that equate to approximately 2 per cent overall. Addressing the long-term contribu-tions towards capital infrastructure needs, there is an additional $130,000 budgeted to be transferred into the Cap-ital Asset Replacement Reserve. This is above and beyond the mini-mum required by bylaw. With long-term sus-tainability a critical ele-ment to strong fiscal responsibility an addi-tional $291,000 is pro-jected to be transferred into the Capital Asset Replacement Reserve. This is the revenue that is expected to be received from new assessment within the District which is called Non-market Change assessment. A 2.49 per cent tax increase has been achieved in the current year while setting aside $612,939 into reserves for future use, of which $421,000 is not currently required by bylaw. This represents strong fiscal responsibility. Town Centre: The Town Centre is a significant priority of council. The district is striving towards mak-ing the Town Centre a vibrant, clean and well-maintained node. The initial focus will be on transporta-tion flow, pedestrian safety improvements and meeting appropri-ate maintenance stan-dards. Implementation of the Town Centre Plan will require many different efforts, includ-ing some capital proj-ects, land acquisition and road realignments. Considerable work is needed to improve side-walks and pedestrian safety. Additionally, actions are required to improve the appear-ance and functionality of the area. Some of the com-pleted projects include; land purchases, Church Road Multi-use Trail, completion of the first phase of the Connector Wadams Way, construc-tion of the Wadams Way Multi-use Trail. Included in 2015 of the Proposed Financial Plan are the following projects: Design and begin construction of the second phase of the Connector (Phillips to Charters Rd.) Hwy 14 Round-about Construction. Improvements to Hwy 14 from Church Rd to Otter Point Rd. Design and con-struction of sidewalks along Hwy 14 from Church Rd to Otter Point Rd. Continued funding for Road and Sidewalk Improvement Program. Downtown Art Bench. Transit Stop Improvements. Economic Revitaliza-tion: The District will strive towards develop-ing appropriate mecha-nisms to facilitate and promote long-term community economic prosperity and resil-iency. Community Plan-ning:The District will strive towards clarifying, sim-plifying and streamlin-ing planning processes and instruments, which will respond to, enable and support invest-ment and job growth in the community.

The tokens were printed one letter at a time from a dial on a machine at midways and the cost was about 25 cents.Both of the young-sters went to Milnes Landing high school and as these high school romances go, it was over before it really began and Van Ek either lost, buried or tossed the token into a field by the farmhouse.Its nice to know after 55 years some things are still kick-ing around, said an amused Banner. Banner was back visiting Sooke and had heard about the token from her cousin Darla on Facebook.History comes back and gets you, she said.Bjornholt, who unearthed the token was excited that the long lost token was rec-ognized.Everything has a story behind it, some you can only imag-ine, but this one we found the story behind it. I get a kick out of it if I can trace things back, said Bjornholt. He said he found the token about two-feet down in the middle of the field at Woodside.He is enthused about finding old bits and pieces with his metal detector.Most of the time its just nails and scrap iron.Woodside Farm is the oldest continually operated farm in Brit-ish Columbia.Pete Wilfred said the field has been continu-ally plowed up for the past 50 years.There are plans afoot to see the history of the Woodside farm made into a movie or video. Woodside Farm was settled by the Muir family in 1851.Pirjo Raits photosVera Banner Appleby holds the token found by Ivan Bjornholt with his metal detector.

The high school had started out in 1946 as Milnes Land-ing High, and much later, in 1987, it became Edward Milne Commu-nity School. This photo was taken in the gymnasium of the earlier building which stood further back in the field than the current distinctive whale-tailed school structure. Many folk, whether resident in Sooke or throughout the western world, and now of middle age, will remember being taught by these teachers.Standing, rear: Mr Creed, Mrs. Creed, Den-nis Kershaw, Ingrid Greenlees, Stella Lajeu-nesse, Paul Rothe. Seated, front: Mr. Ren-nison, Peggy Oke, Kay Maughan, principal Eugene Maglio, Lewis Seens, Mrs. Carr, Sheila Scrase. Five of the teachers in this photo were liv-ing in Sooke: Ingrid Greenlees, Stella Lajeu-nesse, Peggy Oke, Kay Maughan and Eugene Maglio, with the bal-ance commuting from Victoria. Dennis Ker-shaw taught Math at the school for many years and became well-known in the commu-nity. Ingrid Greenlees taught at Leechtown, at Sooke Elementary, then Milnes Landing, then went on to Bridge River in the Interior.Stella Lajeunesse taught at Sooke School, then it was on to New Math at Milnes Land-ing. She became known for volunteering her time at home to tutor students in Math. Two of her own youngsters survive her in Sooke today, Gail Hall and Danny Lajeunesse. If my memory is right, Paul Rothe taught Physical Education and Sheila Scrase taught Home Economics. Kay Maughan taught Eng-lish and she and her husband boarded the Port Renfrew students during the week at their spacious home on Fel-ton Road.Peggy Oke taught French, History, served as Librarian, and was mother to a large fam-ily, most of whom are living in our area today. One of her daughters in particular, Patricia Handy, is well known to many, as she is the manager of the Visi-tor Info Centre at the Sooke Region Museum, besides playing Tilly in Moss Cottage.When Eugene Maglio, from the Interior, became principal, he and his wife and fam-ily of five moved to Sooke. They werent here long, though, as he responded to a call as principal at Yellow-knife, YT. Lewis Seens of Victoria followed him as principal until he moved on in 1972. Its a bit of a shock to realize that today the teaching staff numbers 70, under principal Pat Swinburnson.Elida Peers,HistorianSooke Region MuseumSOOKE NEWS MIRROR - Wednesday, March 11, 2015 www.sookenewsmirror.com 7The faculty at Edward Milne secondary, 1965SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 11, 2015 www.sookenewsmirror.com 7Meet your Realtorhomehhohohomomomwelcome Real Estate& PropertyManagementMike WilliamsNancy VieiraStacey ScharfBrendan Herlihy#26716 WEST COAST ROAD *CEDAR GROVE CENTRE* 250-642-3240www.pembertonholmes.com pembertonholmessooke@shaw.caSue DanielsManaging BrokerMichael DickClayton MorrisAlannah BrenanDREAM GREEN & LIVE OFF THE GRID!$349,000 + GSTFabulous & Unique New Construction!

A representative came forward once again to request land for a cat shelter even though her organization is no longer based in Sooke. The complaint was that Sooke did not support the efforts of the organization in rescuing cats and the CRD was paid to look after animal control. One does not get the support of any elected body when they continually slam the council and berate their decisions. Another came to the microphone to complain about cats and the mess and smell they left in her yard. She wanted some controls over cats, like one would with dogs. Then a gentleman came to plead his case about snakes. He bred snakes and he wanted the list of approved snakes in the exotic pet category to include some non-dangerous species of boas and pythons. The council supported an amendment to the Animal Regulation and Impounding Bylaw to prohibit the feeding of wildlife within the district. So it is with animals. People are passionate about their pets and many care for them like they are part of the family. Others dump cats and leave it to others to take care of them. Many feed the deer, rabbits, squirrels etc. thereby lessening their fear of humans. They become acclimatized to urban areas and many end up being hit by cars. And no one wants all their plants and flowers eaten by deer unafraid of humans. So what is the most humane solution? Can feral cats be domesticated? Probably not. Should we include boas and pythons as breeding stock? That would depend on an individual situation. Should we feed wildlife. That answer would have to be no.Caring and empathy for animals needs to be realistic not idealistic. We dont live in Disneyland.ANOTHER VIEWB.C. Views B.C.s new seniors advocate has issued her second report, and the media mostly ignored it.When this new office was prom-ised by a campaigning Premier Christy Clark two years ago, I sug-gested that B.C. already has 85 seniors advocates. Theyre called MLAs, and inquiries go to their local offices.Much to the chagrin of the opposi-tion, Seniors Advocate Isobel Mack-enzies mandate is not to pursue individual cases, and so she wont be serving up a fresh assortment of horror stories to embarrass the government.Instead, it is to look for systemic challenges and recommend ways to deal with them. The latest report is based on a survey of more than 500 seniors from around the prov-ince, and the key finding was not what she expected.We were surprised to learn of the lack of awareness among seniors, particularly low-income seniors, of government programs and the subsidies available to assist them, Mackenzie said.The survey found that 60 per cent of seniors living on $30,000 or less annual income didnt know they are eligible for discounts on Medical Services Plan premiums. For income less than $22,000, the entire $864 cost of individual MSP premiums is waived.Other frequently overlooked pro-grams are a monthly rent subsidy called Shelter Aid for Elderly Rent-ers (SAFER), grants for disability modifications called Home Adapta-tions for Independence, drug cost assistance called Fair Pharmacare, property tax deferment and the federal Guaranteed Income Supple-ment program. Those older than 75 with income of less than $30,000 reported the lowest awareness of assistance designed specifically for them. But you dont get these ben-efits unless you apply and show that your income qualifies.The survey also found that the biggest fear of low-income seniors is that they wont be able to afford to stay in their homes. See home adaptation, property tax and rent subsidy programs above.Awareness and usage of the SAFER program was lowest in the north and highest in urban areas, perhaps not surprising since the B.C. govern-ment exists more in theory than in fact in many remote places.So what should the government do about this? Well, it could adver-tise these programs. The govern-ment does lots of advertising, but not about old news like the SAFER program, which dates back to the 1970s.Clarks government did a whack of advertising in the election year, 2013. Much of it was about the B.C. Jobs Plan, heavy on the hardhats and blueprint-style graphics and arc welding and stuff like that.Then last year the governments big ad campaign was around the teachers strike, and the payments to parents to help with child care while teachers demanded twice as big a raise as all the other unions.Education Minister Peter Fass-bender is still bragging about the response rate for $40-a-day parental strike pay, which was snapped up by almost 100 per cent of eligible parents. This demonstrates that the government can indeed give away money with great efficiency, just by telling people how to get it.The NDPs version of seniors advocacy is to find the most tragic problems from complaints coming into constituency offices, and use those to ambush the government.A popular choice is an elderly couple who have to be separated because their medical needs are too different to keep them in the same facility. TV news loves that one. Peo-ple cry on camera and denounce politicians for being heartless, as if the health minister stayed up late plotting how to break their grannys heart.Maybe this seniors advocate wasnt such a bad idea after all.Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Because truly,my only job is to be a good per-son. Unfortunately, they continually thwart me from pro-viding this essential service through malfea-sance at every level. We are not meant to destroy life on Earth, this is part ofthe sover-eign territory of Mother Nature. Humans have no right to cull animals or commit genocide. Today a line has been drawn between those who seek earthly pos-sessions and those who seek to save the Earth and life itself. Conspiracy theory is a theory no more. Dothe slightest bit of alterna-tive research on the internet while it is still democratic and you will find the counterto an active chaos agenda. Society will not become more chaotic if we stop obeying, it is already hell. The majority can be wrong.And if you think mov-ing to another planet is a good idea, just know that those responsible for liquidating this one are the ones in charge of that endeavour, under the guise of saving the herd. You may protect your temporal human meat suit but you wont save your soul. And to the dear Sooke girl who waschosen to colonize Mars in 2025, trust your gut. Youve got 100 mil-lion neurons in there helping, and then some.Lets go backwards when forward fails. Everything old is new again. These are the greatest of times.p.s. I am against B.C.s wolf cull.A special thank you to Helene Harrison for the information about the sonic booms in the area - war games and friendly fire huh? Cant they do better than that?Roberta DayeSookeIssue with parkingWe have to say we thoroughly enjoyed Seedy Saturday on Feb-ruary 28. The choices of every-thing from seed pota-toes, flowers and blue-berry plants to baby chicks was a sight to gladden any garden-ers heart. The vendors were well set up and the gardeners were rar-ing to see their wares however I have to say that the lack of parking space was a deterrent for those who could not walk very far. We were parked at the end of Grant Road and walked to the hill. I would also like to point out there was a very irate business owner having vehi-cles towed in front of his antique business. While I do understand his anger, his attitude certain would deter anyone from going into his place of business as who wants to deal with road rage on a beau-tiful Saturday morn-ing and perhaps better parking some distance away with a shuttle bus might be a better alter-native than be subject-ing to angry outbursts? Les and PennyHillard Port RenfrewDumpers anger rural residentsOn Sunday March 1, at approximately 8:40 a.m., I took my dog for a walk up Tregear Road and everything seemed to be normal. Then around approxi-mately 2:30 p.m. decided to take a little drive up Tregear Road. When I approached the top of the road, I came across a couple doing target practice. I asked them if they had seen a truck come up here and they said yes.The truck left right away and they told me of an awful smell up there. Of course, some idiot has the nerve to dump their just-cleaned and filleted fish carcasses on the side of the road. What a gross smell.Thanks to your stu-pidity, we now have bears coming around and there is a family at the top of the road with small children and a couple of small dogs.Do you think that they want to be chasing bears out of their yard and trying to protect their children and ani-mals at the same time?Why couldnt you take your garbage to the dump like every-body else does? There are signs all over up the road saying Private Property No Dump-ing. But I guess this doesnt apply to you and all the other dump-ers out there. You must be somebody special in order to get away with this. But guess what? Karma is watching.Our property is not the dump. Maybe we should come and dump our garbage on your road as we are tired of picking up other peo-ples garbage and dis-posing of it the proper way. We do not appre-ciate having to pick up everybodys garbage every couple of days. Who knows what is in there and what kind of sickness you could pick up.C.J.

The Class ActionA class action lawsuit, Burnell v. Canada (Attorney General) (British Columbia Supreme Court Action No. S077807) (the Class Action) was brought against the Attorney General of Canada (the Defendant) alleging that the conduct of the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans with respect to the fisheries management program it implemented through PHMA was unlawful and enriched the federal government unlawfully at the expense of the Class and Subclass members. The Class Action was certified by the Court on February 18, 2014 (amended on June 13, 2014) on behalf of a Class, represented by Barry Jim Burnell, consisting of:All owners of fishing vessels with a Category L Commercial Halibut License to fish for halibut issued by the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans (Licensed Vessels) at any time between 2001 and 2006 inclusive who purchased quota from PHMA, except for the following:(i) the holder of license L-437;(ii) First Nations fishers holding Category FL Commercial Halibut Fishing licenses; and,(iii) members of the subclass.Individuals who meet this definition qualify as Class Members and are represented by the law firms of Camp Fiorante Matthews Mogerman and Ellis Business Lawyers (Class Counsel).In addition, on June 13, 2014, the action was certified on behalf of a Subclass, represented by Lorne Nels David Iverson, consisting of:All owners of fishing vessels with a Category L Commercial Halibut License to fish for halibut issued by the Minster of Fisheries and Oceans (Licensed Vessels) between 2001 and 2006 inclusive (the Material Time) for which quota was purchased from PHMA and:(a) who at any time during the Material Time:i. were directors of PHMA; or,ii. were corporations in which a PHMA director owned more than 50% of the shares; or(b) who claim that they were in a partnership with a PHMA director in relation to a Licensed Vessel and the purchase of quota from PHMA at any time during the Material Time. Individuals who meet this definition qualify as Subclass Members and are represented by the law firm of Underhill, Boies Parker (Subclass Counsel).The claims of the representative plaintiffs (Barry Burnell and Lorne Iverson) will be used to determine the legal responsibility of the Defendant to compensate the Class and Subclass members for the alleged losses suffered.Judgment on the common issues for the Class and Subclass whether favourable or not will bind all Class Members and Subclass Members who do not opt out of the proceeding. You will be bound by the result of the Class Action whether the lawsuit is successful or unsuccessful and will not be able to start or pursue your own legal claim against the Defendant. The common issues can be found at www.cfmlawyers.ca/active-litigation/commercial-halibut-fishing/ or by request from Class Counsel or Subclass Counsel.If the Class Action is successful in obtaining recovery from the Defendant on behalf of the Class Members and Subclass Members, then they will be entitled to share in the recovery. If you opt out of the Class Action, you do not have this right. Class Members or Subclass Members who opt out of the Class Action may start their own lawsuits, but will not be able to claim any recovery in this Class Action whether through judgment or settlement.

Loss of control, through the rapid change in the road surface quickly pulls the vehicle where it should not go!In the same way, as we journey through life, we can easily be lured into living so close to the edge that we often fall in to bad behaviours. How close to the edge we nd ourselves with what we ll our pastimes with, such as what we are watching on television or reading in books and magazines! Are these really the values we want in our lives? How close to the edge we nd ourselves when we ll our lives with busyness! Happiness and contentment are not measured by activity, but by the value found in quiet and re ective moments that add depth to life.How close to the edge we nd ourselves when we are not content with all that we have so we constantly seek more! Ful llment is never found in the gathering of things but only in deep and committed relationships. Just as the person who drives too close to the edge may not be aware of how close they are to losing control, we need to be more careful, and nd those sources of wisdom to direct us.The Bible is a rumble strip to wake us up and give us clear warnings that we are near the edge, and shows us how to keep on the straight and narrow.The Bible is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. 2 Timothy 3:16.Pastor Gordon Kouwenberg 12 www.sookenewsmirror.com Wednesday, March 11, 2015 - SOOKE NEWS MIRRORBullying awarenessOn behalf of all who stood together on this cold and damp day, I thank you for coming out.But I would sincerely like to apologize to all you school children who did not see us, as you drove by on the buses, and we were not there to give you the encouragement so many of you were enti-tled to.If your mom or dad should read this to you, know full well our hearts go out to you. Our group will be out again someday and I know we can and will do better.Bill JonesSookeFood bank need increasesAn interesting arti-cle appeared in your Letters to the Editor, March 4 edition. A let-ter from Ted Roberts titled Tax the care-less. At the Sooke Food Bank there is an accountability struc-ture in place that docu-ments the number of our clients. It seems that the preferred fis-cal year for any tax or rate increase begins on April 1. Last year on that date, Hydro rates were raised by 24 per cent. It takes some time for cause and effect and coincidentally our client numbers for the Sooke Food Bank increased from a monthly average of 243 hampers from January to May, to an average of 295 from June to November. Thats an additional 52 house-holds. I suspect that our cli-ents preferred to spend their small monthly earnings on neces-sary heat, hot water and light. It is but for the grace of the many kind citizens of Sooke and area, and some lim-ited small grants that we diligently apply for, from anywhere we can get them, that they got food on the table for their children. It is an excellent bud-geting practice for big business and govern-ment to project costs for the fiscal year, how-ever our clients have to budget day to day, they do not have the luxury of a credit line nor have any other alternative for food survival. I firmly believe the Sooke Food Bank pro-vides an essential ser-vice to the community and are there to assist in times like these. April 1 is coming again.Mike Thomas Sooke Food Bank Kids speakOur names are Chloe Unger (11) and Finn Unger (8). On February 23, our Sooke council unani-mously passed Rupert Yakelasheks motion to declare our right to a healthy environment. We attended that coun-cil meeting, which was our first, and we were so impressed and inspired by our mayor and the councillors, who lis-tened and responded so positively.The peoples of the TSou-ke Nation tell us that the Sooke hills, the rivers and streams, the beaches, and all the land in our region is our backyard, our gar-den, and provides us with everything that we need and will every need food, energy, water, fresh air, play, joy and happiness.But the oceans are getting acidic and the seafood is dying. The rivers are polluted Contd from page 11 lettersContd from page 22This schedule is subject to change.

His songwriting, singing and guitar play-ing landed him immedi-ate local attention with a late 1971 headline-making appearance at Vancouvers Queen Elizabeth Theatre. Roy and his trusty Gurian guitar have toured extensively in Canada and the U.S. over these past three decades. From the early days of small cof-fee houses and opening act slots with artists like John Lee Hooker, Supertramp, The Earl Scruggs Revue and San-tana to eventually sell-ing out his own shows and headlining most of the major folk music festivals in Canada, Forbes has developed into one of Canadas best loved acoustic performers. Through the years Roy made a bunch of solo albums plus two with UHF (the once-in-a-while group he shares with Shari Ulrich and Bill Henderson), as well as a Christmas album with Connie Kal-dor. The first, Kid Full Of Dreams, received a Juno nomination in 1976 while 1998s Crazy Old Moon, received a 1999 Juno nomination and a 1999 West Coast Music Award, one of several WCMAs Roy has received over the years. One sunny day in June 2005 he decided to make a musical present for his mother and went into a studio with Vancouver guitar ace Robbie Steininger, laying down 14 tracks between 10 in the morn-ing and 3 in the after-noon. Of those he kept 12. In 2006, he released the new album - Some Tunes For That Mother Of Mine. The wonder-fully austere collection of 11 covers and one jaw-dropping new origi-nal pays tribute to the songs he grew up hear-ing in his snowy Daw-son Creek hometown. Forbes songs have always been performed and recorded by other people: Susan Jacks (of the Poppy Fam-ily), Sylvia Tyson, Matt Minglewood, Valdy and Shari Ulrich in the early days and, his songs have also been used as source music for mov-ies and television. In the late 80s, feeling a need to do more than just tour, he turned his hand to more diverse musical activities. He produced other artists, did his first film score in the early 90s (Net-tie Wilds Blockade) and continues to work in that field his most recent soundtrack being the CBC TV docu-mentary Stand Up Sam-urais. His huge and eclec-tic record collection comes in handy when Roy tapes his semi-reg-ular and popular Snap Crackle Pop show for CBC Radio. And, as of April 2006, Roy now does a weekly radio show for CKUA Radio Network Roys Record Room. Roy gives back to his community by par-ticipating as a resource leader at songwrit-ing workshops across Canada, an offshoot of his work with the Song-writers Association of Canada. Roy sat on the board of that organiza-tion for eight years. In June, 2007, North-ern Lights College gave Roy an honourary arts degree, in recognition of his work over the past three and a half decades. As well, the City of Dawson Creek named a street in his honour Roy Forbes Drive. Roys long awaited new album is finally ready for release. Strikin Matches - LIVE! was recorded at several of Roys solo shows between 2011 and 2013.The entire combina-tion makes for a most welcome live set from this one-of-a-kind artist who has handed us so many timeless, inspired and beautifully crafted tunes over the past four decades. Forbes gifted engineer Dave Meszaros mixed these songs to a point where listeners will feel like theyve paid for the best seat in the house. Roy is known for his high soul-ful voice and percussive guitar playing. This Sunday evening, March 15, Roy Forbes brings his amazing tal-ent to Holy Trinity Anglican Church here in Sooke. This is one con-cert you are not going to want to miss. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the concert commenc-ing at 8.

Scared us coaches a bit here and there, but then baddabing-baddaboom here comes Chalmers with a chance, running up the side like a gazelle, she cuts in and fires her rocket of a lefty shot to find the back of the net. 2-0 Sooke. Gotta say we were all pretty pumped at that point! With our solid defence line - the magnificent Makenna, speedy Sky, bulldozer Shae and gonna-get-em Georgia, super sweepers smarty pants Ciara and happen-ing Hannah Paige sweeping up spectacularly, strong midfielders the gritty Grace, amazing Alex and chopper Chalmers, and strong strikers - fabu-lous Faith, sensible Sarah, Emazing Emma, leader Layla and admirable Addison, these Wildcats kept up the pressure until the clock ran out. Outstand-ing performance by our aggressive attacking GK - the exceptional Ella got herself a much deserved shut out! After a tough season with many ties and many 1 or 2 goal losses... we want the cup. We want it bad. Cup Finals will be held at Fred Milne Park March 28 - 29. Coach Laura Lockhart and Dave Peters U15/16 girls made it into the finals by default as their opponent forfeited.U15 and U17/18 boys lost tough battles against JDF. The U16 Sooke Shredders proved hard work pays off. Cowichan drew first but our Sooke boys tied it up in the first half with a goal from Matthew Miller and assist from Chris Berkeley.We started the second half tied and credit needs to be given to both goalies as they were very busy however Sooke prevailed with a beauty of a goal from Matthew Miller which was assisted by Hagen Harolds awesome in direct kick! End result Sooke 2 Cowichan 1.Coach Michelle BerkeleyWhat a game on Sunday (March 8) for the U17 Autobots playing against Bays U18 girls at Fred Milne Park. Sooke strikers scored first in the tenth min-ute by Taylor Benard assisted by Hailey Dimock. Sooke back line being challenged, Sidney Drys-dale, Kiomi Yates, Katija Pallot, Rachael Wiebe played tight with vision, winning the ball with good distribution. Sooke Mid fielders Jaime Lafon-taine, Chloe Mitchell, Riley McLean, Hailey Bry-ant, Cheyenne Williamson, played with finesse. Sooke having many opportunies, how ever Bays tied it up with a goal in the second half, Bays scored a second goal to take the lead, Sooke had many shots on goal to score, they would not go in. Hailey Dimock scored big in the 88 min. to tie it up. Regulation time ended with it tied 2-2. Extra time was played, both teams battling for a goal, Sooke had many opportunities, but were not able to score. The match was still tied at over time, Both teams went to a shut out.

A well-chosen emer-gency kit containing your daily healthcare items, spare cloth-ing, shelter and food items, communication devices such as hand crank radios and lights, medium sized tarp, water or filter straw and sanitation items. Copies of passport information, insurance , family or contacts from out-of-town, photos of your family, pets and home can all be kept on a memory device, and several days worth of long lasting food items are all things to con-sider.

The additional funding will allow the society to work with provincial biologists to improve angling oppor-tunities in small lakes, large lakes and rivers. This includes angler access improvements, stock assessment to help inform manage-ment decisions, and resources to enhance capacity for compli-ance monitoring and enforcement on both stocked and wild water-bodies. Just recently, Kemp and Poirier Lakes have been restocked.Surcharges on licences for the Habi-tat Conservation Trust Fund will not be affected by the new arrangement. The fund will continue to receive 100% of the licence sur-charge dedicated to habitat conservation under the new arrange-ment.In 2003, the Province signed a 30-year con-tract with the Freshwa-ter Fisheries Society of BC to be a non-profit delivery partner with a mandate to conserve and enhance freshwa-ter fishing opportuni-ties in B.C. The agree-ment is now amended to reflect the additional revenue that will be directed to the society. The society is now recognized as one of the most progressive and accomplished fisheries management organizations in North America generating economic benefits and providing world-class angling opportunities.Quick Facts:-The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC stocks about 800 waterbodies with over eight million trout, char and kokanee produced from the five provincial fish hatcheries oper-ated by the society for that purpose.- There are approxi-mately 330,000 anglers throughout the prov-ince.- There are 24 spe-cies of fish available for angling.- Over 150,000 youth and their families have participated in the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BCs Learn to Fish program since its inception in 2006.To learn more about the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC visit: http://www.gofishbc.com/Angling licence revenue to benefit anglersResidential/Commercialand Bin Service.250-642-3646www.sookedisposal.ca WEEKLY TIDE TABLESTIMES ARE IN STANDARD TIME, HEIGHTS IN FEETDay Time HT Time HT Time HT Time HT12 04:55 8.9 13:14 3.9 20:37 6.6 22:18 6.613 06:36 8.9 15:17 3.6 14 07:34 8.9 16:22 3.6 15 08:43 8.9 17:25 3.3 16 00:44 7.5 04:21 7.2 09:55 8.9 18:22 3.017 01:14 7.5 06:15 6.6 11:09 8.9 19:12 3.018 01:45 7.9 07:20 5.9 12:25 8.9 19:56 3.019 02:17 8.5 08:16 4.9 13:39 8.9 20:37 3.31-0-1MOSS KILLERWESTCOASTSTEER MANURE20 KG5024-8080Reg. $24.999-3-6MOSS CONTROL$2197eaMOSS KILLERMOSS KILLER5FOR$10WESTCOASTMUSHROOM MANUREMUSHROOM MANUREReg. 2.49 1670-105ISLANDS FINESTTOP SOIL20 KG5024-8090Reg. $14.99$1397ea6-12-12RHODO FOOD9 KG Bag5024-6666Reg. $19.99$1697ea30L5053-899Reg. $4.19$347ea6 6 2 6 S o o k e R o a d 2 5 0 - 6 4 2 - 6 3 6 6 SOOKEEvent starts today!
