The neighbouring land is owned by BeecherBay First Nations, also known as Scianew, and there is some indication that logging might occur. It came up during this conversation that Sooke does not have a Steep Slop Development plan. By the end of the discus-sion, members of the Stratawere encouraged to start a dialogue with the Beecher Bay First Nations to dis-cuss their concerns. Maja Tait made the motion that staff should investigate a steep slope bylaw for pre-sentation to council so that council can follow up with this. The motion was seconded and it passed.The next item on the agenda was the Silver Spray development in East Sooke. A presentation was made by Michael Thorn-ton, where he requested approval for a temporary cottage to be built on a rocky area within the required 15 metre horizontal setback, subject to an engineer-ing assessment. Council agreed with his proposal.Once the presentations were done pre-application meetings with potentialdevelopers and property owners was discussed.Randy Clarkston, a Sooke resident who owns andruns West Coast Design and Development Ser-vices, said that the Sooke process is immature and cumbersome, and that he advises his clients to wait until Sooke matures as a municipality. One time, said Clarkston, it took eight months for a variance request for one inch in a garage to be sent out, fromthe time of application.Council agreed that the conversa-tion needs to continue.The discussion of Bylaws 65 and 70 was tabled for another meet-ing, possibly a special meeting, as this committee meets only once a month.There was also some discussion on the require-ment of amenities that developers are required to bring into a development (sidewalks, services and other amenities). The issue of amenties was ultimately referred back to staff for more research and input. Judy Burgess photoDinner time!A photograph of a Coopers Hawk, taken this week in our plum tree on Broom Hill. The Coopers Hawk is one of the smaller hawks. Beautiful but deadly if one happens to be a Pine Siskin. This Coopers Hawk waits near our bird feeder to catch meals, often an unaware Pine Siskin. His hunting skills are fast and effective. We call him Zap.

This was not the case when Sandra Cameron of Sooke first heard the diagnosis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). Her first response was Yeah, right!, in utter disbelief, fol-lowed by a sharp, This cant be right!In this case, the patient being diagnosed was not elderly quite the opposite. The patient being diagnosed was Sandras one-and-a-half-year old daughter, Kailen. For Sandra, it was inconceivable that her toddler could have arthritis. It all started with a visit to the beach. Last year [Kailen] was with my in-laws. They have a trailer down at the beach, explained Sandra, When she came back the next day, she was limping. We thought she had rolled her ankle. We took her to the doc-tor, and the doctor said it was just a mild injury. Sandra and her husband Scott have two other chil-dren (Paiton 12 and Averie 5). They were used to the normal aches, tumbles, and growing pains. But this time around things were different. Young Kailens pain was not subsid-ing. A week later it still hadnt gone away, Sandra contin-ued, So we went back to the doctor who then said there is something more to this, and she referred us to an orthope-dic surgeon. It took two months to get in to see the surgeon a long time when you are watching your young child in constant pain. She was really stiff in the morning. She couldnt walk properly, and she really was in pain, said Sandra. Bearing witness was difficult, espe-cially in one so young. You dont know what shes going through. You dont know how much pain she is really in.By the time the surgeons appointment came around, Kailens foot had completely turned out at the ankle. Even though the two-month wait seemed painfully long, the diagnosis from the surgeon came relatively quickly. Many are not that lucky. According to the Arthritis Societys web-site (arthritis.ca), It may take longer for children and teen-agers with JIA to be diagnosed because many people (even doctors) do not realize that children and teenagers can get arthritis!Kailen had whats known as oligoarticular JIA. Accord-ing to the Canadian website, aboutkidshealth.ca, this is the most common type. It affects up to four joints in the first six months of symptoms. The most affected joints are knee, ankle, wrist and elbow, comes with a high risk of eye disease called uveitis, and tends to affect girls more than boys. When the joints are seri-ously affected for a prolonged period of time, growth can be impeded. Kailen has the eye disease, and has three joints on her left side that are affected: her index finger, her knee and her ankle, said Sandra.Her family doctor confirmed the diagnosis, and it was then a relatively short two-week wait to see the pediatrician, Dr. Roxana Bolaria, from the Victoria Arthritis centre.Having a diagnosis often helps put suffering into con-text a manageable frame-work. But when something unexpected hits you, it often hits full-force. For Sandra, the additional emotions were overwhelming. One of the hardest things Sandra had to cope with was the sense of guilt the belief that there was some-t h i n g she as a m o t h e r c o u l d h a v e done dif-ferently. W h e n we first got diag-n o s e d , I ques-t i o n e d e v e r y -t h i n g . I ques-t i o n e d f o o d choices, medications Id given her when she was sick, immu-nizations. A whole host of things go through your head, like How could I have stopped this? There was the impend-ing sense that the choices that Ive made have done this.But, as the Arthritis Soci-ety explains on their website (arthritis.ca), idiopathic means the cause is not known.After a time trying to find the right treatment, Sandra and Scott settled on an oral medicine. When they went to a type of autoimmune medi-cine that also acts as a chemo drug, Sandra broke down. You feel bad and you want to be strong, and you want to be able to handle it all ... you cant. And I completely broke down. And they [at the Victo-ria Arthritis Centre] said, This is a normal response, its ok.Sandra was told that it takes time for the medicine to work. After three months, the change came ... literally over-night. At first, Sandra was cau-tiously optimistic, as it may have been just the euphemis-tic good day. But the change was real. In one day, she became a differ-ent kid, said Sandra. These good days have continued, and now Kailen is jumping, skipping and singing as a two year old should.submitted photoTwo-year-old Kailen Cameron was diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis six months ago.Continued on page A3 NORTHERN NORTHERN SSTARTAR PLUMBING/GAS/SERVICES LTD PLUMBING/GAS/SERVICES LTD We Specialize In Peace of Mind We Specialize In Peace of MindKKel Phair, owner / operatorel Phair, owner / operatorHelping Sooke Residents since the turn of the century...Helping Sooke Residents since the turn of the century... ...so if youre lost...

The nicest thing is seeing Kailens change, the day-to-day not being so difficult. She jumps downstairs now, she runs more than she used to. Kailen is now doing great. Sandras words of advice cut to core of maternal guilt: The biggest thing is, its nothing you did. Its not your fault. And that with the help [of whatever resources are available to you] that it will get eas-ier. She adds that parents should Watch for the signs, and be persistent. You will have to be your childs advocate.

Dial Toll-Free (888) 549-5651 ext. 40709Juvinile arthritisContinued from page A2Arthritis 101Just the factsMarch is Childhood Arthritis Awareness Month. The following information comes from the Canadian Arthritis Society, (arthritis.ca). If you have any concerns, speak with your doctor.Childhood arthritis, or juvenile arthritis (JA), occurs among boys and girls under the age of 16. It can be defined as continuous inflam-mation (pain, stiffness and swelling) of one or more joints lasting at least six weeks for which no other cause can be found.Symptoms of JA include joint pain, morn-ing stiffness, joint swelling and problems with mobility. These symptoms interfere with regu-lar activities, such as being physically active, playing with friends and going to school. The pain of arthritis affects a childs quality of life and overall well-being.The onset of JA may follow an event that turns on the immune system, causing it to be overactive by perhaps responding inappropri-ately to an infection or mistakenly identify-ing something as an infection, thereby causing continuous inflammation.The warning signs of JA include any of the fol-lowing symptoms occurring over a few weeks: Inflamed joints (red, swollen and warm to the touch).Stiffness in the morning or after waking from naps.Limping or difficulty using an arm or leg. JA differs from arthritis that affects adults. The unique features associated with JA are:a) irregular growth problems that cause dis-comfort;b) an increased likelihood for chronic uveitis, which is inflammation of the eye caus-ing reduced vision; andc) painful flare-ups and disease remission that can come and go without warning.POLICE BEAT Steve Arnett photoPolice held a roadblock Saturday, March 16 on the corner of Grant and West Coast Roads.The Sooke RCMP have no major incidents to report. The police were out on Saturday evening performing road checks at Grant and West Coast Road. They will be performing safety checks on a regular basis throughout the spring, where they will be looking for alcohol consumption and seat-belt compliance. They will also be looking for driv-ers who are talking, texting or tweeting. Drivers are reminded that using hand-held devices while driving is illegal, even when you are stopped at a red light. According to ICBC, dis-tracted driving is the third leading cause of fatal card accidents in B.C. There are an average of 94 deaths per year due to someone using a personal electronic device (aka a cell phone) while driving. Keep your eyes upon road, your hands upon the wheel has never made more sense.The organizer of the Shirley Market is look-ing for vendors. There are 30 tables available, and half of them have already been spoken for. This years Shirley Market has its seasons opening on May 4 and will run on Sundays through until Septem-ber 28, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Founder and orga-nizer Christopher Lucas says that the Shirley Market received over-whelming support from the community last year. Then, the market ran every second Sun-day, and it achieved a total yearend gross rev-enue of $21,000. This year, the market will run twice as often, open every Sunday. Lucas would like to thank the CRD for their support for this season.There are three differ-ent rates available, full season pre-paid, blocks of time, and drop in.

Our *new* sign for the Sooke Pipes and Drums was installed on Sunday, February 3rd and it looks fabulous.Tom Warran and Doug McKenzie with the Sooke Fire Department brought over the ladder truck to help with the installation, with prior approval from Mayor Wendal Milne and Fire Chief Steve Sorensen. Dave Green, Kevin Duffett and Peter McBride were also instrumental in the installation of the sign.Tom and Dave went up, down, across and over on the ladder taking down the old signs and installing the new sign. Doug worked the remote control from the ground and appeared to be having a lot of fun doing it. Kevin (a new member with the Legion), a lines man in the military went up on the roof with Peter (a member of the Sooke Pipes and Drums) and lowered the sign for the guys to power drill into the wall. I actually think they all had fun doing this project.The Sooke Pipes and Drums gave a donation to the Sooke Fire Fighters Historical Fund as they are refurbishing their antique re truck in preparation for their 100th Anniversary Celebrations.Dave graciously donated his time and skills to framing, painting and installing the new sign.

Admis-sion is by donation. The Fossil Fair will display a rich and diverse variety of ancient fossil animals and plants from the Cambrian (550 mil-lion years ago) to the end of the last Ice Age (10,000 years ago). Fossils will be displayed from Vancouver Island, other parts of British Columbia and other areas. The fossils include dino-saur bones, ammonites, trilobites, cor-als, mollusks, insects, giant palm leaves and microscopic fossils. Among the displays will be 25 million year old Sooke Formation fossils from the Muir Creek area which may be of interest to the Sooke community, writes Tom Cockburn, the Vice-Chair of the Vic-toria Palaeontology Society in an email. Special displays will include:Large fossil teeth (loaned by Royal British Columbia Museum) and informa-tion about extinct sea mammals called Desmostylids that lived on the Pacific coast, including Vancouver Island;A poster that transforms a large fossil ammonite into an in-life image, bringing visitors eye-to-eye with the extinct giant cephalopod;An initiative to designate a Provincial Fossil for British Columbia.The Fossil Fair is an educational expe-rience for all age groups. The public is invited to bring in fossils for identifi-cation. Specific activities for children include a sandbox fossil dig, fossil scav-enger hunt with prizes, fossil colour-ing and rubbings and looking through microscopes. The Victoria Palaeontology Society cooperates with professional palaeon-tologists undertaking research on fossils collected by society members. Informa-tion will be provided on some of the sci-entific contributions made by members, including the discovery and naming of new species. All scientifically impor-tant fossils are donated to the RBCM. The Society is a member of the British Columbia Paleontological Alliance, an umbrella organization representing the interests of a number of paleontological organizations in the province.Visit www.vicpalaeo.org for more infor-mation.The first Anglican priest resident in Sooke was the Reverend John Lancaster. The year was 1963 and John and Miriam were newly married. A cottage next to the church had been reno-vated as a manse.The young couple were just the right assets for the parish and for Sooke in that time. Tall, dark and handsome John got right to work improving the church alongside the men of the parish.This 1964 photograph, copied from the Grapevine (forerun-ner of the Sooke News Mirror) demonstrates hand mixing con-crete for the basement floor of the original Holy Trinity Anglican Church on Murray Road. Holy Trinity celebrates its 100th anni-versary this summer, and the Lancasters mark their 50th wed-ding anniversary this August as well. Miriam joined in with other Sooke women to teach Red Cross swimming classes at Sunny Shores open air pool. John got right to work with the guys in the community, helping with All Sooke Day and the activities of Sooke Community Association. He served as a director, and in 1967 as chair of that organization. 1967 was Canadas Centennial year, and it fell to John to chair Sookes Centennial Committee as well. His easy humour made him a favourite with youth groups who met in the refurbished church basement, and with the adults as well. He laughingly recalls I started out at All Sooke Day, clearing the picnic tables and picking up garbage, and rose through the ranks to become chair.John and family left Sooke in 1968, he then studied in Princ-eton, N.J. before joining the staff of Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria. They spent 1976 in St. Andrews Scotland, then returned to Victoria. He was then appointed Archdeacon of Quatsino and rector of the Church of St John the Divine in Courtenay. Both John and Miriam, a piano teacher and church music director for many years, are now retired and live in Vancouver.Elida Peers, HistorianSooke Region Museumsubmitted photoRev.

This first annual Top 20 Under 40 was to rec-ognize business and community leaders on Van-couver Island under the age of 40 who are con-sidered to be ahead of our time.

The ceremo-nies were held at the Florence Filberg Centre in Courtney.Rabien was one of over 100 people nominated, and on March 9th he received his award. Rabiens passion for medicine took him to var-ious cities and towns in B.C., the Territories and New Zealand. After his return home to Sooke and starting a family medicine practice he spent the last six years, with his local colleagues, to successfully lobby VIHA to select Sooke as an Integrated Health Network and provide special-ist care to the patientsAdditionally, Rabien is involved in the provi-sion of community-based palliative care in the region, works as a clinical assistant professor at UBC, and volunteers as a mentor with the Island Medical Program.And as if that werent enough to keep him busy, Rabien is also one of three professionals who created B.C.

While a low interest rate is always good, there are other important factors you should consider before signing on the dotted line. A exible mortgage can save you money Look for a mortgage that includes the option of changing payment frequency or of increasing the amount of your monthly payments without a fee. By making accelerated and/or lump-sum payments youll pay off your mortgage faster saving on interest costs. Mortgage lenders usually allow a yearly lump-sum payment of up to 15% of the original principal amount. A portable mortgage can save you money Mortgages usually have an amortization period of 25 years, with a typical mortgage term of ve years, but you can get one that offers the option to move that mortgage from one property to another. If you think your new home will not be your last home, mortgage portability is an option you should consider. An assumable mortgage can save you money Another mortgage option to look for if you intend to move on is assumability, which allows you to transfer your existing mortgage to the new owner of the property youve sold saving on prepayment charges for ending your mortgage before its maturity date. A re-advance option can help if you unexpectedly need additional funds This option allows you to obtain a re-advance of funds up to the original registered amount of your existing mortgage. Beware of low rate promotions Advertised promotions for extremely low mortgage rates often come with strict repayment options, and steep repayment charges if you need to exit the mortgage term prior to its maturity date. Cash back mortgages can mean Cash back to the lender These mortgages offer a cash rebate (usually 3% to 5% of the principal amount) but if you dont stay with the lender for the full amortization term, the cash back amount may need to be paid back to the lender either in part or in full. Advice can be valuable Dont jump into a mortgage. Instead, work through your mortgage requirements with a professional advisor and legal advisor to ensure you get the best mortgage product for your nancial needs.

V9Z 0A5 | Phone: 250-642-5752 WEB: WWW.SOOKENEWSMIRROR.COMVICTORIA There was some public business conducted in the final frantic days of the B.C. legislature session last week, but you likely wouldnt have heard much about it.Premier Christy Clarks skimpy governing agenda was overshadowed by the delivery of an internal investigation report into her governments ethnic outreach program.A review by four deputy ministers detailed what reporters already knew from a memo and meeting notes leaked to the NDP. The plan started in the premiers office, led by Clarks deputy chief of staff, who resigned as soon as it was made public.A B.C. Liberal Party employee attended the first meeting, expressly intended to organize events to impress immigrant communities, then harvest the goodwill in the form of contact lists for the coming election campaign.After 10,000 e-mails were collected and 27 interviews conducted, they revealed a few significant details.Former multiculturalism minister John Yap knew or should have known that the scheme was being kept secret because it was an inappropriate use of government resources. He wont be back in cabinet, although Clark said he intends to run for re-election in Richmond-Steveston.Yaps executive assistant resigned when the report came out, admitting he helped cover the tracks of political meddling in the hiring of three outreach contractors with sufficient loyalty to the party.Clark insists she knew nothing of this plan. She tabled the investigation report, and then announced that the B.C. Liberal Party had written a $70,000 cheque to the government to cover the estimated cost of the inappropriate political work done by non-political staff.Heres the part taxpayers may not fully appreciate. There are authorized political staffers all over the legislature, in the premiers office, the opposition leaders office and two teams of caucus employees who spend much of their time digging up dirt on the other party. All are paid by you and me.A line is crossed only when a non-political employee such as a ministry communications director acts on behalf of the party. The main offender in that capacity was one Brian Bonney, whose records suggested he spent half of his time on party work. He quit in February, before the plan was leaked, and the party paid back half of his salary for the 18 months he was on the public payroll.NDP outrage over this was blunted by another leaked document. This one was from a never-released 2010 report by Auditor General John Doyle, which condemned a five-year program of skimming money from NDP constituency office budgets all over the province and using it for political work.In a nice bit of symmetry, much of the more than $400,000 was spent to put three-time candidate Gabriel Yiu on the NDP caucus payroll. Yius Vancouver-Fraserview candidate page boasts of his ethnic outreach work, which included tirelessly warning B.C.s Chinese community about the evils of the harmonized sales tax.In fact, it was the NDP-Yiu operation that inspired a B.C. Liberal copycat plan.The NDP quietly stopped the budget skimming after Doyle pointed out the blindingly obvious, which is that constituency funds are to serve constituents and are not to be diverted to political organizing.It was kept under wraps by the secretive Legislative Assembly Management Committee. This is the B.C. Liberal-NDP co-managed trough of undocumented MLA expenses and other questionable payments that Doyle has only recently dragged into the light.Both of these schemes have the same stink. Both are intentional abuse of taxpayers money for the political gain of the dominant parties. There is no moral high ground for either of them.Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.comtfletcher@blackpress.caBoth parties have betrayed usTom FletcherB.C. ViewsTwo-week March break too costlyOUR VIEWWhen I was in grade five, March break promised a wonderful time where I could just play, play, play. Nowadays, looking at it through the lens of a single working parent, its not so deliciously simple. Our education system was structured in an era that saw families living on a single income. One parent worked at a job (for pay), and the other worked at home (typically without pay). Todays harsh reality is that single-income homes exist only when there is no other choice (i.e. its run by a single parent). Fact of the matter is that the costs of living over the past 40 years have escalated, and wages have not kept pace. According to a UBC study, incomes have flatlined since the 1970s whereas housing costs have skyrocketed 76 per cent. These numbers account for inflation. Nowadays, March break is a gross inconvenience. Why? Because March break in todays framework means that parents whether its one or two need to either dole out extra money for expensive day camps or take time off work which can be equally expensive when measured in terms of lost income. And when that one week threatens to become two, it can consume the entire annual vacation entitlement of one parent. It means choosing between time off in March or at Christmas time.Thats asking a lot. Especially of single parents who dont have a second calendar to fall back on.Bottom line: A two-week spring break is primarily a cost-saving strategy for school boards. According to the Vancouver Courier, school board closures in their district returns a savings of about $100,000 a day. Whatever the district, downloading that cost to parents is just another hidden tax. One we can certainly do without.Downloading costs to parents is unacceptableHow to reach us:Phone 250-642-5752; fax 250-642-4767 Rod Sluggett publisher@sookenewsmirror.comHarla Eve office@sookenewsmirror.comPirjo Raits editor@sookenewsmirror.comBritt Santowski news@sookenewsmirror.comRod Sluggett, sales@sookenewsmirror.com circulation@sookenewsmirror.comSteve Arnett production@sookenewsmirror.comFrank Kaufman creative@sookenewsmirror.comHarla Eve, office@sookenewsmirror.comVicky Sluggett General:Publisher:Office Manager:Reporter:Advertising:Circulation:Production Manager:Creative Services:Classifieds:Editor:Agreement #401105412010 WINNERANOTHER VIEWSOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 www.sookenewsmirror.com A9www.westernfoods.comSENIORS DAY THURSDAYS SAVE 10% ON MOST ITEMSLocally Owned & Operated Since 1974Your Community Food StoreSOOKE6660 Sooke RoadOpen 7 Days a Week7:30 am to 10 pmWe reserve the right to limit quantitiesAD PRICES IN EFFECT MARCH 20 THRU MARCH 26, 2013Go GreenGo GreenuseuseWesternWesternFoodsFoodsCloth Cloth BagsBagsLANGFORD772 Goldstream Ave.Open 7 Days a Week7:30 am to 10 pmWe reserve the right to limit quantitieslbKraftCheezWhiz 1 kgSeventh GenerationBathroom Tissue12 Roll+ dep.lb332929+ dep.12 Roll449999664949 117979EmmAllys Gluten FreeFudgeBrownies350 g554949per 100 glb8989Island Raised Bone InChickenBreast 7.25 kglbMixed SalamilbCaliforniaBroccoli Crowns1.96 kgA10 www.sookenewsmirror.com WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 - SOOKE NEWS MIRROR SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 www.sookenewsmirror.com A11Come in Every Wednesday for ourSecret Super Saver Specialsin all departmentsin all departmentsFresh For Your Family Stock Up Your PantryStock Up Your Pantry5-A-Day for Optimum HealthPRODUCEPRODUCEGROCERY SAVINGSGROCERY SAVINGSBUTCHERS BLOCKBUTCHERS BLOCKTreats from theSEASEA ORGANIC CORNERAD PRICES IN EFFECT MARCH 20 THRU MARCH 26, 2013Island Raised Bone InChicken Breast7.25 kgKelloggs Special K Dark Chocolate or BananaGranola Bars 135 - 175 g ..........2/500Chile ThompsonSeedlessGrapes3.73 kg .................................169MexicanLong EnglishCucumbers..............................................79New ZealandRed JumboOnions1.96 kg8989B.C.

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 www.sookenewsmirror.com OPINION A13We asked: What do you think of a two-week March break? (For those without kids in the education system, the Greater Victoria School District, or SD61, currently has a two-week March break, whereas Sooke, or SD62, has one) They should co-ordinate them so that families with kids in different districts can have the same time together. Helen McNeil,SookeIt would be awesome! Victoria is lucky to get two weeks. I would be really happy with that. Id play hockey and visit my best friend a lot.Andre Dupuis Jr, Sooke I would like two weeks. I would jump on the trampoline, play a lot and visit my friendsZoe Evans,SookeWere lucky we dont have it. Its expensive and hard to co-ordinate. What parent has two weeks to burn ei-ther in vacation time or with additional child care costs?Andre Dupuis,SookeCompassion for pets neededThe Sooke Animal Food and Rescue soci-ety has entered in their second year of serving the community. How did we feel in the first year? What have we learned? In the beginning, we felt we were pulling a very heavy wagon uphill. From a very small group of vol-unteers starting with nothing, we are ecstatic with how much we have achieved. We knew from the start that our task would be difficult, but we never imag-ined to what extent. Our first mission was to control the feral cat colonies to prevent overpopula-tion, but as the months passed our phone calls increased by 90 per cent. Sooke residents finally have someone to rescue the hurt pet that someone has dumped in their yard. In our first year, we rescued 50 abandoned animals; can you imag-ine how many unwanted pets in the years to come? People abandon their pets because they cannot pay for their food or vet bills. Appar-ently, helping a pet found in somebodys yard is not a govern-ment duty; so we have to act. And in order to act, we need help from you, the community. The most recent and sad example was a 14-year-old boy losing his dog due to a severe skin infection. This tragedy could have been prevented just by donating hypoaller-genic dog food to the boys mother. We have three similar cases where we cannot pro-vide this expensive food to pet owners. The point we want to make is that we should not discriminate against those who cannot afford to buy food for their pets. In many cases a pet is the only moral support that a child, elder, abused/disabled/depressed person has. When a child is bul-lied in school, or when a disabled person is socially belittled, their pet is always waiting with unconditional love.Please, open your hearts and donate to our rescue society; call us at 778-352-2999 or check our website www.safars.org. Margarita Dominguez, Sooke Animal Food and Rescue Society$300,000 bike park wasteful I cant believe the bike track proposal for John Phillips Memorial Park is actually back on councils agenda. This time with a $300,000 price tag and construc-tion of storage sheds and outdoor toilets, and in full view of quiet residential neighbour-hoods. Also, I believe the understanding is that the Sooke Bike Club will maintain said 1.8 hectare park and their toilets with the help of all their vol-unteers/members/supporters. Right!The Sooke Bike Club couldnt even man-age to come up with the $3.600 they need for planning costs. Sooke tax payers had to foot that bill. Oh, and dont forget, this is a five year project.Mr. Mayor and Sooke Council why not give some thought to the following more relevant issues that really mean something to Sooke residents:1) The Sooke Food Bank is desperately in need of goods to help Sooke residents in need. Even Grades 1 and 2 students at John Muir School seem more eager to contribute to the food bank than you do.2) The COmmunity Hall needs a new roof and the Association has to cover substan-tial monthly expenses.3) The sewage treatment plant is severely underfunded. Does that mean our taxes are increasing?And the list goes on!Yet, for some reason, Sooke Council and cer-tain staffers seem to be irrationally obsessed with investing time, effort and substantial amounts of taxpayer money on a bike race track. For you to take our public green space without public consul-tation and hand it over to a small, private, spe-cial interest group is absolutely outrageous.Tell us whats wrong with that picture? Why have the priori-ties of the mayor and council gone so terri-bly wrong? You need to give more consid-eration for the greater good of all Sooke resi-dents and taxpayers.Speak up Sooke tax-payers. This is our tax money they are wast-ing, and our public land they are giving away. Stuart and Carolyn Katorsky,Sooke Bike Skills Park skips public processAssuming that Rick Kasper was quoted correctly in the March 13 Sooke News Mirror (Public will have say on Bike Skills Park) as say-ing about a public hear-ing on the Bike Skills Park, that he did not want council to appear to pre-judge the public process, did this not already occur when council handed out $3,600 of our money to draw up plans for it?As pointed out in a previous Letters (News Mirror, Nov. 21, 2012), the bike park was not the first instance in which coun-cil and staff have made up their minds well before any pro-forma hearings were held. Granted, such a plug is commonly used by higher levels of gov-ernment to give the appearance of public input when the course of action has already been decided, but must we be so-duped at the local level as well?Incidentally, I dont much care about the actual outcome of this proposal, although it does seem that there are other suitable loca-tions available for the Bike Skills Park; but I lost interest in the fate of the John Phillips Memo-rial Golf Course long ago, when a previous administration turned over a large chunk of it to developers.

Death itself cannot be held over our heads as an "ultimate penalty" for failing to meet the demands or expectations of any particular earthly power.The possibilities that exist within the Divine Love at the heart of all creation, will not be limited by any verdict, judgment or sentence meted out by human power. Our own religious intolerances cannot and will not stop God from nding a way to eventually bring about transformation, redemption and healing.The cruelest penalty that the Roman Empire could in ict, the harshest judgment that the religious leaders of Jerusalem could make, never stood a chance against the regenerative love of God. After every human institution has faded into oblivion, God's love remains in effect. While we personally wish that every person might enjoy the "peace" enjoyed through a relationship with Christ, it would be foolish of us to claim knowledge of all that is possible for others in and through their own relationship with an eternally limitless God.We do know that the Easter story proclaims a power that de es the limits of human understanding. There exists much more beyond the boundaries of what we "know" to be the "facts" of our earthly existence.To all of our sisters and brothers in the family of God within and outside of the Christian faith, Happy Easter!The divine love that preceded and will outlast all creation lives! Rebirth is possible!

I would challenge any of you to visit the dog park in Duncan. It is a place where the regu-lars gather with their coffee, their children and their dogs (there is even a coffee/bagel kiosk next to the park). We often find there are people there who do not own a dog, they just enjoy watch-ing the activities. It is clean and every-one picks up after their dogs. It is not noisy. The dogs are free to run and play in a confined space. The people become friends. While Im not suggesting that giving people a safe place to exercise their dogs will solve the prob-lems at Whiffin Spit, maybe it will help. So, rather than just say-ing no to the park, why not work with us to find a solution? Patricia Marsh,East Sooke Cash with appology in Asian culturesRe: Letters: How far back do we go? a Sooke News Mirror editorial published in the Langley Times, March 13, 2013. Unfortunately, like many people today, the Editor or Edito-rial Writer for the Sooke News Mirror has no understand-ing of Asian cultures, where a small amount of money enclosed in an envelope that accompanies an apol-ogy, no matter how small the amount is, helps in the forgive-ness of a wrong-doing. As for apologizing for wrong-doings in the past, some wrong-doings then were in contravention of the law of the day or of a treaty that was per-tinent to the area in which the wrong-do-ing was carried out, or in the two cases cited, to the morality of the so-called Christian Canadians for the day, but ignored for the sake of political con-venience as bigotry seemingly ran amok undoubtedly a carry-over from our British cultural background. Unfortunately, peo-ple in Canada, before and after Confedera-tion, have chosen to ignore laws and other wrong-doings that they dont like or that might upset them. And as for our polit-ical leaders, it seems that re-election is a greater concern than being morally correct. As our world becomes more cultur-ally diverse, it is wise to address wrong-doings in a way that will make the recipi-ent of the apology feel that the wrong-doers descendants realize the error that their ancestors have made and are genuinely apologizing for it. G.E. MacDonell,Abbotsford, B.C.Find better location for Tim HortonsIn March 13 letters by M Reynolds (Tim Hortons has Canadian Roots) and Mary Coll (Stay away from the bland), there was no mention of the specific location proposed for a Tim Hortons with mandatory drive-thru.If people want one or they dont, most agree that it is the wrong location, at the corner of Sooke Road and Dover Street. It is an uncontrolled inter-section, at the edge of the elementary school zone where parents turn to pick up and drop off chil-dren. It is already a congested corner, par-ticularly at rush hour.Downhill, Dover is the only two-way access in and out of our quiet residential neighbourhood. We are not in the down-town core, and no place for this high-impact business.Highways tells us the access to a Tim Hortons would be on Lanark; our only resi-dential street which is parallel to Sooke Road. It is used as a safer walking route for school children, parents with stroll-ers and dog walkers. All our other streets are dead ends, and we could very easily be trapped by traffic with no other way out. If there was an acci-dent on Larnark, since it connects us all, we couldnt even get an emergency vehi-cle in to our homes.According to B.C. Assessment, our retired neighbours with lovely homes and gardens would see their property values drop, if the company with the Canadian roots were to move in. These long-time residents would be uprooted by traffic, pollution and noise 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week. How sad is that? Linda Batty,SookeOpen letter to councilThere is a miscon-ception that the naysayers, ( taxpay-ers) are opposed to a bike skills park. I believe that the issue is, not in John Philips Memorial park, next to residen-tial homes in a park which is for everyone. The idea that chil-dren need a place to play is much over-used. We have a skate-board park for extreme sports, which is for the most part a head-ache for policing and CRD Parks for repairs. We have a swimming pool, which was sup-posed to give the chil-dren something to do as well as an ice rink. How much do we do for the children? We live in the center of a lovely wild natu-ral setting. How about dads and moms tak-ing their children into the lovely natural parks? How about tak-ing a mountain bike up Harbourview Park?Now there is a chal-lenge. Perhaps, the Mountain bike club should be approach-ing the CRD/TLC as their decision was to only allow bikes and hikers into this park. There is a bike washing station there, a great parking lot, water, and public wash-rooms. Build the bike skills park here. Resi-dents wont be affected and all the amenities are already there. CRD has given approval for an ATV to the Fire Dept., spe-cifically for this area. Why not build on this? There is a bike skills park at the arena, built by the bike club years ago. Larry Hutchings from the arena has no objections to the bike park being updated and refurbished. Lets look at options other than a $300,000 expenditure and $15,000 per year main-tainance on a Beacon Hill type park. Base-ball and soccer play-ers are the largest users of the sports fields and activities in Sooke, yet there has been no help to bring the fields up to a good standard. The fields are so wet that 50 per cent or more of soccer games and practices need to be cancelled. The $3,600 for bike skills design work would have been bet-ter spent to put in drainage on the fields. There is also a dire need for parking and a need for more baseball fields. Council mem-bers were all elected to be fiscally responsible, not politically popular. We need to pro-tect our children for the future and this means not saddling them with debts that can never be repaid. Future generation will not be able to go out and play in our forests as they, like their par-ents today, spend the majority of their time working to make ends meet. Be responsible and respect our future. Ellen Lewers,SookeWar bride reunion I am the daughter of a Second World War war bride who met and married my Canadian soldier father near the end of the war. Within a year of their mar-riage, my mother sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to be reunited with my father along with tens of thou-sands of other Eng-lish, Scottish, Welsh, Dutch, and French war brides. These women were and con-tinue to be amazing and strong ladies who have given so much to their families and to Canada. Statistics indicate that one in 30 Canadians are directly related to a Second World War war bride.We are holding our annual War Bride Reunion in Victoria, British Columbia from April 11 to 14, 2013 at the Fairmont Empress Hotel and need your help to spread the word about this fun-filled party for our wonderful Mums!

Theyknew that night it was one of them things thatare just meant to be. They were married in 1992. It would be quite a balancing act at that time raising a family and trying to make a living along with all theother stuff that came with getting by, but wemanaged, Stacey said as she looked back ather first encounter with the world of touring.Stacey Earles first show was on an arena stage in Sydney, play-ing rhythm guitar in her brothers band, Steve Earle & the Dukes.She spent about a year and a half on tour with her brother, and then returned to Nash-ville to start a career of her own as a country/folk singer/songwriter. I was 30-years-old and asking/seeking a recording deal in Nash-ville.At that age it was like asking God to turn back the world clock. Mark Stuart went to the finest of music schools, he started his schooling listening and admiring his uncles guitar playing and his dads fiddling. By age 15 he would find himself playing in the school ofhonky tonks and beer joints in and around Nashville in his dads band. Mark was off the road when he met Sta-cey and that very night he would play the firstnote of her music never leaving her side. Markstill somehow foundthe time to work on his own music record-ing his solo record and touring. Mark, as well, spent some time in the Dukes in the 1990s. Like Earle, he recalls it as a time ofglamour: appearing on the Tonight Show withJay Leno, and MTV. I had someone tun-ing my guitar, strappingon my guitar, he said. Now we carry our stuff three flights up in the Red Roof Inn.Over the years Sta-cey and Mark havelearned so much from each other. Their songs are the diaries of their life good times andbad, thereby complet-ing the love they have.Together they share the full load of gettingby day-by-day.

A class typi-cally consists of warm-ups, shadow boxing, form practice, and the application technique. Brogan lists the skills that are mastered in class, which include Footwork, balance, co-ordination, reflex ... arobic, anarobic exer-cises, strength and stamina building.Where and whenThe Sooke Amatuer Boxing Club meets at the Sooke Community Hall at 2037 Shields Road, across from Moms Cafe. They meet on Tuesday and Fri-day nights starting at 6:30 p.m and go until about 9 p.m. Brogan also puts in an occa-sional Sunday meeting.A bit about the artAs Brogan puts it, box-ing is the noble art of self-defence. He adds that its non-agressive in its attitude, totally defensive in terms of the teaching, but in that comes aggressive defence where you know how to move forward and accost your aggressor. You learn how to be alert and stay safe. When someone is coming at you, you need to know how to move away and still deliver the blow.A bit about the schoolAs they outline on their webpage, the level of intensity is set by the capacity (and desire) of the student. Workouts will be conducted with skill level, interest and safety in mind while at the same time provid-ing participants with the opportunity to chal-lenge their limits. If you want to compete, we want to walk you to the ring. If you just want fit-ness, we want to help you with that, too.About the instructorsCoach Tony Brogan is a former boxing com-petitor and enthusiast. He is a certified and reg-istered coach with the B.C. Boxing Association.Student profileThis martial art holds appeal for both men and women who want an intense work-out. Brogan adds that the Amateur Boxing Club has seen women train with them from time to time. Its emi-nently suitable for both men and women he says. Nobody has to get into the ring, we use it as a model for training. Once they get some condition-ing, we get them into the ring. Its also ideal for families who want to train together Its something the parents can be involved in.Monitoring individual progress There are no belts or levels in this program. The ultimate drive is fitness, with back-drop knowledge of self-de-fence. Anyone who can do three three-minute rounds in the ring, they can play a full rugby or soccer game, they can go for a five mile run, they can do anything, says Brogan.Websitehttp://www.facebook.com/SookeAmateur-BoxingClubFung Loy Kok Taoist Tai Chi in SookeTaoist Tai Chi has been teaching classes in Sooke since 1987.What they teachTaoist Tai Chi con-sists of a series of gentle movements that work on muscle relaxation, body align-ment, and overall co-ordination and balance.Where and whenClasses are held upstairs at the Sooke Legion Hall at 6726 Eustace Rd. Beginner classes are on Tues-days starting at 10:30 a.m. Continuing classes begin at 9:30a.m.The beginners class is an introduction to the 108 movements, and the continuing class is for students who know the movements and are then aspiring Britt SantowskiSooke News MirrorLast week in part 1 of this guide, we looked at the various Taikwondo and karate schools available here in Sooke. This week, we looking at boxing and tai chi. Martial arts are defined as studies in self defence that apply strength, power and speed, and/or directed energy and balance. They can be armed or unarmed. Skills development focusses on self-defence and combat, and often involve a mindset component. Here in the West, mindset tends to focus on discipline and positiv-ity, and classes are treated more as fit-ness-focussed than spiritually-focussed.Following is a birds eye view of what the boxing and tai chi programs. They cater to a range of ages, skill levels and desired outcomes, and hold appeal for both female and male students.If you are interested in previewing or attending any of these schools, con-tact the school directly to confirm time and place as some of these schools are still settling into regular schedules.Britt Santowski photoInstructor Tony Brogan goes through the drills with his students.Continued on page A17FOR REGISTRATIONS AND INFORMATION, PLEASE CALL: 250-642-8000SEAPARC SnippetsSEAPARC SnippetsLAST SET OF SWIM LESSONS BEFORE SUMMERSTART THE FIRST WEEK OF APRILA variety of times and levels to choose from including weekend, weekday, morning and evening optionsREGISTER EARLY CLASSES FILL UP QUICKLY!Reserve your tables now for the BIG Garage Sale & Information Fair at SEAPARCSaturday April 209:00am-1:00pmLocal non-pro t groups are welcome to reserve a table to promote their organizationFree Admission to the PublicSEAPARC is happy to offer the LIFE (Leisure Involvement For Everyone) Program to individuals and families of Sooke & the Electoral Areawho are on low or xed incomes.The goal of this program is to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to take part in recreational activities - no matter what their income is.Were happy to help just ask us how!Britt SantowskiSooke News MirrorOn Saturday, March 23, Sookes very own international figure skating pair, Pilar and Leonardo Maekawa, will be skating at SEA-PARC. Supporters of this dynamic due are invited to join in on an hour-and-a-half public skate, after which Pilar and Leonardo Maekawa will perform.This skate will serve as a fundraiser, and the funds raised will go towards the costs of this years Olympic training. This new season is the Olympic one, and for that they will have to train harder than usual, writes their mother, Conchita, in an email. For this pur-pose they will be travel-ling to Detroit to train for four weeks. This will give them the opportu-nity to skate with the best in the world (the Canadians and Ameri-cans) and train with them.Most recently, Pilar and Leonardo when to Japan to compete at the Four Continents Competition where they placed 13th.

Admis-sion will be by dona-tion. At the end of the public skate, Pilar and Leonardo will perform for everybody.to improve their form and continue in Tai Chi. Classes are two hours long, but fear not, the group breaks for a very civilized and traditional cup of Chinese tea halfway through the session. A bit about the artTai Chi is a gentle form of stimulating the body and the mind. The international website (taoist.org) sums it up thus: Taoist Tai Chi internal arts are distin-guished at the physical level by stretching, full range of motion and the continuous turning of the waist and spine. The movements exer-cise the whole physiol-ogy; including the ten-dons, joints, connec-tive tissue and internal organs. At the mental and spiritual level, they are a method of taming the heart and devel-oping an attitude of calm, compassion and reduced self-centred-ness both during prac-tice and in daily life.A bit about the schoolThe program in Sooke offers Tai Chi classes as a satellite of the Vic-toria Branch. Debbie Clarkston, an instruc-tor here in Sooke, says that the focus for the Sooke Tai Chi group is focussed entirely on health improvement. Tai Chi is an excel-lent way to be proac-tive with your health. We work with people who face health issues like MS and fibromy-algia, said Clarkston. About the instructorsAll instructors are volunteers, and classes are operated on a non-profit basis. According to the website of the international co-ordi-nating body (taoist.org), all instructors are accredited to teach by the National Instruc-tion Co-ordination Committee. They must attend regular train-ing workshops and meet annual accredi-tation requirements. Student profileEven though the majority of the partici-pants are adults, we encourage participants of any age to attend, said Clarkson. Dues are structured so that any-one can attend class.Monitoring individual progressThere are two levels: beginners and continu-ing students. Begin-ners are introduced to the 108 moves, and the continuing students refine and master them.Websitehttp://www.sookere-gionresources.com/resource/fung-loy-kok-taoist-tai-chiSOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 www.sookenewsmirror.com SPORTS A17Continued from page A16Your guide to martial artsBritt Santowski photoTai Chi students go through a series of 108 movements.

Apple trees bulging with fruit and fat sheep grazing in the meadows speak of abundance and life taken a little slower. The gourmands who come to enjoy the chefs creations at Wild Mountain Dinners are among a growing clientele who enjoy dining together. They are strangers, for the most part, but they do have one thing in common they love good food, well prepared from local sources. They sit together at a long table and share their food and conversa-tion with others in a communal dining experience. Chef Oliver Kienast calls it a private dinner party.The table champetre takes place at Glenrosa, a rebuilt heritage house in rural Metchosin. The original house was built in 1880 by a family who homesteaded in the area. The house itself has had a number of reincarnations but it has always maintained the air of a grand home set above Ped-der Bay on a rocky outcropping. It is now a B&B which transforms its great room into a dining room for the twice-monthly private communal dinner parties. Glenrosa own-ers Jane and Peter Hammond welcome the dinners and the guests.Its about humans connecting, which everyone is crav-ing, said Brooke Fader, the chefs wife and business part-ner. As the guests begin to arrive they gather on the veranda for conversation, canapes, and the first of the wines theyll taste throughout the evening. The dinner itself will be seven courses, served with wine pairings or fresh juices. Each of the wines selected for the dinner are from British Columbia. Fader has a lot of knowl-edge about local wines and pairs them perfectly with each of the dinner courses.Fader said it is like a play, along with the nerves, anxiety and excitement, and each of the courses is an act.When the curtain opens the show is on, said Fader.And a show it is. The plates are beautifully presented. The first course is a cold summer soup with crab, cucum-ber, fava beans, mint, nasturtium leaves and chili oil served with a 2010 Sauvignon blanc semillon from the Similkameen Valley, or an elderflower water.The courses keep coming. The second course is a stacked salad of fresh local heritage tomatoes, water buffalo mozza-rella, hand made pancetta and eggplant. Each of the courses arrive perfectly timed and include local smoked salmon, quail, elk carpaccio, bacon and fruit all sourced locally. Chef Kienast makes his own sauces from scratch and cures his own pork products. The couple live and grow as much as they can on their property in Sooke.Chef Kienast is a believer in the slow and local food movements. He likes to forage for items such as sea aspara-gus and wild blackberries.Our mandate is to do wild foods with a modern twist, said Kienast. I try to go that extra step with fresh home-made butter, bacons, etc.At 32 years of age, Kienast is young for a chef setting off on his own, although he has gained a lot of experience in his short career. Starting out, he worked for free at Cafe Brio to gain experience and said that was his epiphany. He drove to the Sooke Harbour House and peered in the win-dow, and said, One day, one day Im going to get my foot in the door, and he did. It was while working there that he first heard of the Slow Food Movement from Sinclair Philip. This is also where he met his future wife, who is still a cel-lar master there.Other jobs in prestigious resorts and restaurants led him to create Wild Mountain Dinners.A trip to one of the worlds best restaurants in San Sebas-tian, Spain was a game changer for the couple.It changed my life. We realized the space we have in Canada and the access to creating our own food and sup-plies, said Kienast.They built a pig pen and grew a garden in order to culti-vate those slow food ideals. It was a huge shift in our ideals and the way of dealing with food, said Kienast.The couples dream is the same as many who love food and that is to have their own farm and a small restaurant. Kienast hung around Ragley Farm in East Sooke for a year and learned what he could about the farm end of things and this led to his Wild Mountain Dinners at Glenrosa. He met Gillian, the daughter of the Jane and Peter Hammond who own Glenrosa and through a common love of good food, the farm to table dining experience began. They changed my life with their generosity, open house, grace and ease, said Kienast. They let me do my own thing, they just gave it over to me.My dream was a one menu, one setting scenario, and I knew there was something that can happen at a big table. Its a lot of work and a lot of reward.Fader said they have introduced people who have become friends and potential partners through the infor-mal dining at Glenrosa.Dinner guest Marion French said, One of the highlights is having dinner with friends and making new friends as all the guests are served together at a large communal farm table. I would highly recommend the experience. It is worth the drive and you can always spend the night at the B&B.Kienast spends about one-half the week gathering the ingredients for the menu. It is relatively unique to forage through fields and oceans. They are value-added products you cant get other ways, he said. It is a real movement ever since Noma in Copenhagen introduced Scandinavian wild foods, there s a real push on for this kind of thing. He has forged friendships and does business with people who also believe in the farm to table philosophy. To put on a dinner on their own terms is a rare thing for chefs, said Kienast. He never repeats his menus and attempts to use whatever is in season and available.Its about knowing your environment and whats out there. There is so much great produce grown, he said. Local hands, local foods.For more information on Wild Mountain Dinners, go to: wildmountaindinners.com or email honeyheads@gmail.com.

Avoid the first few drops.Roads are slickest when first wet. If at all possible, don't ride in the first 20 minutes of a fresh rain shower. Residual oil rests on a dry road, waiting for the rain. And when the first bit of rain falls, this oil is lifted, and rinses off the roads. If it hasn't rained for a while (an impossibility given that we're on the west coast, just coming out of winter), the roads will be even more slick as there's a bunch of oil waiting for the water to lift it off the road.2. Avoid painted lines and metal service cov-ers.Painted lines can be super slick when wet. Word is, there is a paint available that is less slick, but since we don't know which is which, just avoid all of them. This includes painted arrows, lines dividing traffic, painted islands, and those thick stop lines (the last three of four which you gener-ally shouldn't be on anyway).3. Increase your fol-lowing distance.There's no account-ing for the IQ of the driver ahead of you. Slow down, increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to three seconds. And if you have a tailgater trying to read the fine-print on your driver's manual, flash your brake lights at them. Nine times out of ten, they will back off. And if they don't just pull over and let them pass (when it is legal and safe to do so.) Their anxieties need not become yours. 4. Dress appropri-ately.I'm a bit of a cat. I hate getting wet. But being wet is not really the big danger here. Windchill factor is. When you're dry and it's five degrees Cel-sius outside, and you're travelling at 90km/hour, it's a windchill factor of -3. Being wet increases heat loss through evap-oration, so you're going to get colder faster. When you're riding wet, your fingers will quickly become numb. And your fingers (and toes) are operating five of your six core controls. Riding numb is riding dumb.5. Know your gear.Have you ever won-dered what that suede patch is for on the index finger of your leather gloves? If you were told that it is for wiping the rain off your visor, you were lied to. The only thing that does is smudges your visor and blurs your vision. Don't fall for it. They were just being polite. The dirty truth is: it's for wiping the snot from your nose drying the, um, other liquid from inside your visor.Interestingly, most accidents happen on clear, sunny, dry days. Probably because that's when we're least expecting it. According to the definitive MAIDS report (a U.K. study on motorcycle accidents, replacing the U.S. HURT report), "weather con-ditions at the time of the accident were most frequently dry (89.9 per cent)." It would appear that when conditions are adverse, we seem to ride just that much more cautiously.Britt Santowski has been riding since she was 25, and served as a chief instructor with the Vancouver Island Safety Council, where she taught for nine years.SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 www.sookenewsmirror.com NEWS B3Britt SantowskiThrottle TherapyRiding safely in the rainCapital Regional DistrictA properly installed and maintained irrigation system will conserve water!Efcient Irrigation WorkshopsConsidering the purchase and installation of an irrigation system or do you already own a system that you would like to upgrade?CRD Environmental Sustainability is hosting free, efcient irrigation workshops for residential homeowners.

Baileys response let-ter dated March 6th Perceiving Sooke to A.J. Barbers orig-inal letter dated Feb 27th Sooke fine the way it is.I thought your let-ter was very interest-ing and a bit of irony twisted reply, if I may put it that way. When you said, ...saying Sooke is attractive.... are you kidding me? What part?? Perhaps the only issue is you and A.J. Barber have are dif-ferent tastes or views in what is attractive.It seems your replied contents may be suggesting that the way the town is, its not good enough for you? People arent as friendly as they should be? People dont know your name? Let me tell you something. I was born and grew up in Nelson, B.C. Lots of people know all about Nelson, which I dont need to tell you how amazing the town is or awesome people are etc. I then moved to Victoria as an adult. I moved to Otter Point last year. What do I see about Sooke? I see a village center with more population than the City of Nelson. The two towns are very different. Sooke has a typical small town feel that is not predominantly defined by anything in particular, i.e. heritage buildings. If I may remind you, you made the choice to move to Sooke, or maybe you were born in Sooke, then you have a choice to stay or not. However, change is inevitable, of course. Cell tow-ers absolutely make it safer now for emer-gency calls, no doubt! But one has to won-der... what is Sooke in a race for? To be the next Tofino? The n e x t L a n g -ford? What? Whats wrong with Sooke the way it is? After all, we moved here because of the way it already is. Per-haps Sooke already actually has an iden-tity that you might not be aware of? M.

Thepiece was commissioned by Erard, a manufacturer of pedal harps, to show off the range of its new lineof harps, something Debussy had already done for a rival firm. The harp was just coming in as a soloinstrument.Three works by Faur highlight the singingvoice. The Faur Messe Basse (short mass) for womens chorus, will be sung by the women of theSooke Philharmonic Chorus. The Cantique de Jean Racine for mixed chorus, is based on a paraphraseby Racine of Word of God, one with the Most High, a Latin hymn. Faurs wonderful Requiem features Andrew Greenwood, the Victoria bari-tone, and the Victoria Childrens Apprentice Choir, directed by David Stratkauskas. Audiences will no doubt remember the childrens choir from its per-formance of Brundibar in 2011.The March 23 concert in Sooke is dedicated tothe memory of Suzanne M. Manley, herself a gifted singer, and celebrates her love of music.Tickets are $18 for adults, $15 for seniors and students, $5 for youth, and $30 for the family pack.Tickets on sale at the usual outlets.For more information, please go to www.sooke-phil.ca or call 250-415-0999.Submitted photoVictoria harpist Josh Layne will be joined by Sooke orchestra members Alison Crone, flute; and Lawrence De La Haye, clarinet; and the Sooke Philharmonic String Quartet fortheir concert Saturday, March 23.2205 Otter Point Road, SookePhone: 250-642-1634 Fax: 250-642-0541email: info@sooke.cawebsite: www.sooke.caThis schedule is subject to change.

How many potatoes could you fit in a shoebox?Bill and Marty dry the dishes and Marty dries half as many as Bill. How many dishes did each person dry and whats the total? Make math fun and show interest in your childs math program. Practice basic math facts 10 minutes every day. Talk with your child about their math class. Find out specifically what they did and what they were working on. What did the teacher talk about? What did the teacher show them? Did they work in groups? What was fun or interesting? Was anything confusing? Communicate/meet with the teacher regularly about the math program. What is the math focus for the week, the month, the term? Visit the classroom. Volunteer! Too often, parents only meet with the teacher on parent night and often have limited knowledge about their childs prog-ress. Review the textbook with your child. You can learn more about the content of the math program, brush up on your own math skills, and you will be able to better help your child if difficulties arise. Review the BC Ministry of Education math curriculum documents. (www.bced.gov.bc.ca irp). You will know exactly what the math expectations are for your childs grade. Practice how to solve word problems. Have your child read the problem out loud. Underline important words. Have them draw a picture to help. Substitute smaller numbers for larger ones. What do you have to find out? What do you need to do to find the answer? What is the first step? Is your answer reasonable? Can you solve it another way?Children will feel more confident when their parents show genuine interest in their math program. We can all do that!For any questions, comments, suggestions or open-ended problems, please email: gregsparks50@hotmail.comHelping your child: show interestFile PhotoYou can save on your bus fare when you buy tickets and passes.You can buy your tickets and passes at these outlets in Greater Victoria.Transit Info rrtXXXCDUSBOTJUDPN3005Victoria Regional Transit SystemGet PrePaid to Pay LessVictoria RegionalTransit Commission :PVUIBOE4FOJPSTCash Fare $ 2.50Tickets (sheet of 10) 15.00DayPASS 5.00Monthly Pass 45.00"EVMUCash Fare 2.50Tickets (sheet of 10) 22.50DayPASS 5.00Monthly Pass 85.00Brentwood BayBrentwood Rexall Drug StorePharmasave West SaanichColwood88 Mini MartCanex Express MartColwood Corners Drycleaners7-Eleven ColwoodCorona FoodsPetro Canada ColwoodPetro Canada Island HwyLondon DrugsCook Street VillagePharmasave CookMacs Store CookVictoria Food & FloristCraigower & TillicumGorge Vale EssoGorge Vale Petro CanDouglas & HillsideWinks Convenience StoreDowntown Core7-Eleven Douglas7-Eleven Yates7-Eleven Government7-Eleven Bay7-Eleven The FallsAlpine Food and FloristB & E Food MarketBlair MartCinema Convenience StoreCity of VictoriaLondon DrugsMacs Store CookMacs Store DouglasRegal NewsShoppers Drug MartThe Executive ShopThe Market on YatesTourism VictoriaBay CentreWellburns MarketEsquimaltCountry GrocerFraser 25Macs Store AdmiralsPharmasave EsquimaltSave On Foods Westside MallShoppers Drug MartV & J Super Low Cost MarketWest Bay MarketFaireldClare Mart FoodsPeoples Drug MartThrifty FoodsFort/Foul BayTomleys MarketGordon Head7-Eleven ShelbourneGorge RoadShoppers Drug MartHillside & QuadraB & V MarketFairway MarketPeoples Drug MartMacs Store QuadraThe Loonie BinHillside Mall AreaHaultain GroceryHillside EssoPharmasave HillsideShoppers Drug MartThrifty FoodsJames BayDons GroceryLittle Gem GroceryMacs Store MenziesPharmasave MenziesThrifty FoodsJubilee AreaCamosun College BookstoreRJH Parking OfceJubilee PharmacyLangford7-Eleven JacklinCanWest EssoForbes Pharmacy GoldstreamForbes Pharmacy MillstreamGoldstream Food MarketMacs Store JacklinPetro Canada MillstreamShoppers Drug Mart JacklinPharmasave MillstreamStreamside GroceryThe Market on MillstreamWestshore Town CentreMayfair MallB & V MarketMayfair EssoMayfair Shopping CentreMcKenzie & QuadraLondon DrugsPetro Canada QuadraThrifty Foods QuadraThrifty Foods McKenzieQuadra/McKenzie EssoOak BayCaseys MarketEstevan PharmacyMunicipality of Oak BayPharmasave Oak BayShoppers Drug MartRoyal Oak DistrictCountry GrocerPetro Canada Elk LakePetro Canada Royal OakPharmasave BroadmeadPure PharmacyShoppers Drug MartThrifty FoodsSaanichtonFairway MarketPat Bay EssoShoppers Drug MartThrifty FoodsShelbourne & Cedar Hill XFairway MarketMacs Store ShelbourneShelbourne & McKenzie7-Eleven ShelbourneFairway Market University HgtsUniversity Heights EssoPetro Canada ShelbournePetro Canada HillsideThrifty Foods Tuscany VillageSidney7-Eleven BeaconPharmasaveBC Ferries Gift Shop - on vesselsThrifty FoodsSookePeoples Drug MartShoppers Drug MartVillage Food MarketTillicum Mall7-Eleven BurnsideAM to PM StoreLondon DrugsUptown Area7-Eleven CareyCentral EssoUptown Guest ServicesSave On FoodsShoppers Drug MartUniversityCamosun CollegeCampus Medicine CentreVic WestOceanic MarketView RoyalFort Victoria RV ParkThrifty Foods, AdmiralsVGH Parking OfceWilkinson & Interurban Macs StoreB12 CLASSIFIEDS www.sookenewsmirror.com WEDNESDAY, MARCH 20, 2013 - SOOKE NEWS MIRRORBob has left us an enviable legacy of beauty, love, gentleness and unconditional kindness. His story doesnt need repeating but that such harmless old man could be driven to kill himself is incomprehensible. Those guilty of any responsibility whatsoever, either as accuser or judge, jury and hangman, take heed - because it could happen to you! Find yourself suspected or charged with anything however outlandish and innocent until proven guilty ies right out of the window. Those around you wont be any more faithful to you than they were to Bob - so watch your backs. He would forgive what youve done. His friends never will.An ironic comment - Bob once told me that his favourite song (as sung by street singer Roger Ridley for the Playing for Change movement) was Stand By Me.Doreen LangmeadROBERT DE RYCKBONSAI BOB1939 - 2013BY HIS OWN HANDRuth passed peacefully in her home after a 5 year battle with Dementia. She is survived by her husband of 46 years Floyd Miller (Fruitvale), her ve daughters, and 9 grandchildren. For the past year she had become well known in the Fruitvale area for her love of music, long walks and her mischievous smile. But most of all for her love of Jehovah God. Previously Ruth and Floyd had been an active part of the Sooke Community, on Vancouver Island where they had owned and operated the Otterpoint Bakery for 12 years. She will always be lovingly remembered for her playfulness, generosity, hard work and ability to create specialness out of the ordinary. Please join us in a memorial of her life at the Sooke Kingdom Hall of Jehovahs Witnesses, March 23, 2013 at 2pm, 2207 Church Road.RUTH MILLER May 1949 March 1, 2013It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, wife, sister and grandmother. Shirley passed away March 14, 2013 after a brave and lengthy battle with cancer; she left us knowing she was surrounded by those she loved most. Shirley graduated from Cowichan District High School in 1967 and shortly after, married David, and relocated to Sooke where she went on to raise three boys and build Cackleberry Hill her successful organic farm. Shirley loved to bake for her family and maintained a stand at the Sooke Country Market held every Saturday for many years; she not only sold meat, eggs and her home-baked goodies but nurtured lifelong friendships with some great women. Children loved the baby animals she brought to the market and if you wanted one of Shirleys pies? You had to be there early! Shirleys greatest joy was spending time on her farm with her family, cooking, reading with The Q playing in the background. Shirley is predeceased by her parents, Dorothy & Chester Lloyd, her step-mother, Jennie Lloyd and her granddaughter, Amanda Sell. Shirley leaves David her husband of 45 years, her three sons, Neil and his children Gary Lee, Katrina, Niles and Stellar, Aron (Natalie) and daughter Savana and Jeremy (Nicole). She also leaves her two younger sisters, Jean Wilcox (Lorne) of Duncan and Joan Heskin (Garry) of Nanaimo, brother-in-laws Bob, Fred and Tom Sell and several nieces and nephews. Shirley touched so many she will be greatly missed.SHIRLEY RUTH SELL (Lloyd),March 26, 1948 March 14, 2013In MemoriamWaller, TerryMarch 15, 1953 Owen Sound, Ont.- March 20, 2011 Sooke, BCRemembering my brother is easy.

Shirley passed away March 14, 2013 after a brave and lengthy battle with cancer; she left us knowing she was surrounded by those she loved most. Shirley graduated from Cowichan District High School in 1967 and shortly after, married David, and relocated to Sooke where she went on to raise three boys and build Cackleberry Hill her successful organic farm. Shirley loved to bake for her family and maintained a stand at the Sooke Country Market held every Saturday for many years; she not only sold meat, eggs and her home-baked goodies but nurtured lifelong friendships with some great women. Children loved the baby animals she brought to the market and if you wanted one of Shirleys pies? You had to be there early! Shirleys greatest joy was spending time on her farm with her family, cooking, reading with The Q playing in the background. Shirley is predeceased by her parents, Dorothy & Chester Lloyd, her step-mother, Jennie Lloyd and her granddaughter, Amanda Sell. Shirley leaves David her husband of 45 years, her three sons, Neil and his children Gary Lee, Katrina, Niles and Stellar, Aron (Natalie) and daughter Savana and Jeremy (Nicole). She also leaves her two younger sisters, Jean Wilcox (Lorne) of Duncan and Joan Heskin (Garry) of Nanaimo, brother-in-laws Bob, Fred and Tom Sell and several nieces and nephews. Shirley touched so many she will be greatly missed. Celebration of life will be held at 3727 Otter Point Road at the Otter Point Fire Hall starting at 1:00 p.m.SHIRLEY RUTH SELL (Lloyd),March 26, 1948March 14, 2013Passed away peacefully at 9:47am on March 11, 2013 at the age of 85 years.
