C O M M U N I T Y N E W S M E D I ABlack PressWednesday, November 11, 2015 Mail Agreement #40110541X-RAY FACILITIESCurrent operation inadequate, says health committeeKevin LairdSooke News MirrorMayor Maja Tait is being told to go political and be prepared to rattle a few cages in an attempt to get better x-ray diagnostic services in Sooke.For years, the Primary Health Care Services Working Group, chaired by Tait, has worked at getting better service in Sooke.Sookes current x-ray facilities, operated by North Vancouver-based West Coast Medical Imaging, operates only one day a week for two hours. It also creates analogue x-rays, far less superior than the doctor-preferred digital x-rays.Part of the problem is that Sooke is less than 28 kilometres from Victoria General and St. Anthonys Treatment Centre in Langford, operated by West Coast Medical Imaging, where full x-ray facilities are located. It means patients are expected to travel that distance within Greater Victoria.The reasoning doesnt sit well with Tait, who said its a challenge for many residents to travel the distance on the often windy and hazardous Sooke Road.Theyve (policy makers) clearly never driven out here at this time of the year, Tait said. I just imagine folks at Ayre Manor when somebody falls and is suffering from whatever and then have to be bundled up and driven to Langford and wait for hours [for an x-ray]. Its just not an acceptable situation.Tait said as Sooke grows so does the need for improved medical diagnostic facilities, adding there is a solid business case, based on patient volumes alone. To receive a certificate of approval to bill the province for services, x-ray facilities must apply to the advisory committee on diagnostic facilities, which is a committee of the Medical Services Commission. However, all diagnostic facilities (whether they intend on billing MSP or not), must be accredited by the Diagnostic Accreditation program, a program of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C.Health Ministry spokesperson Laura Heinze said the hours of operations are determined by the operator, and the machines the facility uses are also determined by the private provider.Coun. Rick Kasper said although the x-ray facility is run by a privately-owned company, the licence was issued on the need to serve the people of Sooke and now that level of service needs to be challenged.You have to fight this fire, Kasper told Tait at a recent council meeting. You need to go political on the issue, rattle a few cages.Sooke needs prescription forFido gets better service than youSookes only x-ray facility is open one day a week for two hours.This facility only produces analogue x-ray, when doctors prefer higher-quality digital images.Mayor Maja Tait said local doctors prefer patients not get x-rays here, but send patients to either Victoria General or St. Anthonys Treatment Centre in Langford.Local veterinarian clinics all offer digital x-rays to their furry patients and most are available, at least on an emergency basis, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.SEE X-RAY PAGE 5Shelly@ShellyDavis.cawww.ShellyDavis.caShelly Davis778-352-3535Ellen Bergerud250-818-6441#1 Real Estate Company in Canada for Sales last 4 Consecutive YearsLorenda Simms250-217-5787EllenBergerud@Shaw.caRealEstateSooke.comLorendaSimms@gmail.comLorendaSimms.comI have quali ed buyers looking for aproperty requiring TLC or updati ng.Please contact me for details.New in Heron ViewExtraordinary 2700sf home.

Readers Photo of the Week is sponsored by the Stickleback West Coast Eatery.Kevin LairdSooke News MirrorCoun. Rick Kasper wants to take a bite out of crime and hes hoping other members of district council will join him.After reviewing RCMP crime statistics for September, council noted a doubling of business break-ins, going from nine in 2012 to 18 this year in a comparable nine-month period.Last month, Kasper suggested more proactive crime prevention work might be needed in the business community, suggesting such work could possibly be done in conjunction with police and business groups.Now, hes offered to back a proposal by putting money aside for a crime prevention program.It could mean putting together a workshop or an information package, he told council Monday.I would really encourage council members to think about that and try to put that in the budget next year.District council begins budget talks later this month.Councilloreyes cash for crime preventionA search last week of an Otter Point house of a possible methamphetamine laboratory did not turn up a lab, but Sooke RCMP say they seized a quantity of drugs.A search warrant was executed in the area of Robinson and Otter Point roads.The RCMP Clandestine Lab Enforcement and Response Team were called in to assist in the search, along with members of the Vancouver Island ERT, Westshore RCMP, Otter Point Fire Department and B.C. Ambulance Service.Police allege a rental house on the property contained stolen goods, and a quantity of methamphetamine, psilocybin (magic) mushrooms, drug trafficking paraphernalia and weapons.We did not find a methamphetamine lab on the property. Were continuing to look for it, said Sooke RCMP Staff Sgt. Jeff McArthur.If there is a lab in your community, there is not only a ready supply of methamphetamine but a number of caustic chemicals that come off of it.

Saturated fats are found in animal products - such as beef, lamb, pork, butter, cream, ice cream, whole milk, cheeses, egg yolks, and foods made with these products. Trans-fatty acids are found in fried foods, commercial baked goods (donuts, cookies, crackers), processed foods, and margarines. Lack of physical activity can lead to high LDL cholesterol. On the other hand, regular exercise can increase good cholesterol, lower bad cholesterol, decrease your risk for heart disease, and improve your overall health. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2015 I NEWS I SOOKENEWSMIRROR.COM 3Lights, camera historyKevin LairdSooke News MirrorAs The Harpooner, a barque ship, slowly makes its way up the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Ann Muir looks out from the deck and gazes at the shores by Whiffen Spit. It would be the perfect spot for a home, she thought.It was 1849 and John Muir with his wife, Ann, and five children were arriving on the shores of Victoria nearing the end of a long voyage from Scotland. It was a journey that would change their lives.Muir arrived here to work as for the Hudsons Bay Company in the coalfields of Fort Rupert. Within two years, the family would buy a 160-acre section of land in what is now west Sooke and build a farm.Woodside Farm was built in 1851, and is now the oldest continuously operated farm west of the Great Lakes.And while the farm has diminished in size over the years, its significance to the Sooke Region has not.Now, the Sooke Region Historical Society hopes to save the history of the farm, in what local historian Elida Peers calls one of our communitys proudest assets, with a documentary film.The film project is spearheaded by a volunteer committee of 16 people who have a direct connection with the farm and the three pioneer families who called it home over the years: the Muirs, Glinzs and Wilfords. Metchosin filmmaker Michael Peterson is producing the film.Work on the film began in July, and is expected to be wrapped up by September. It will intersperse interviews with historic photographs and visuals within the house and grounds.Sense of historyThe Muirs built two houses on the grounds of Woodside Farm, located at 7117 West Coast Road.The first house was a one-storey Woodside built around 1851. It was replaced later by a classic Georgian-style farmhouse, and was home to both John Muir, Sr. and John Muir, Jr., until 1917.Swiss farmers Arnold and Rosa Glinz leased the farm in 1917 and three years later bought the property and ran a guest house with the farm. Woodside Farm was bought by Phillip Wilford, through marriage, in 1947. Peter Wilford operates the farm today.Life on the farmCharlie Glinz and Pete Wilford have fond memories of growing up on Woodside Farm in the 1950s. We just had the run of the place all the time, recalled Glinz. It was a great place to grow up.After the Second World War, several families moved into the West Sooke neighbourhood, many from war-torn Holland under a government sponsorship program.Woodside Farm sponsored some of those families with the Dutch working on the farm for at least a year. Up to three families could be living in the farmhouse. Each family had its own large vegetable garden, chickens, cows and pigs.Wilford said the families lived in the house in harmony, each serving up their own meals. For the Dutch it was a land of milk and honey. It wasnt fancy, but there was lots of it, he said.With those families came a sense of community, which both Glinz and Wilford said added to the enjoyment and fun on living on the farm.We went from morning until night doing whatever we wanted, Glinz said.Once the chores were done, quipped Wilford.It was just being able to have a big piece of property to run around on. It was freedom, Glinz said.klaird@blackpress.caKevin Laird/Sooke News MirrorPeter Wilford, left, and Charlie Glinz at Woodside Farm.

Thats wrong, he said.West Coast Medical Imaging did not return phone calls.klaird@blackpress.caX-RAY: Better facilities offered throughout the regionFROM PAGE 1Octavian LacatusuSooke News MirrorIn Sooke, all it often takes to get a fundraiser going is one heart to set the spark the rest follows with generous intentions and no expectations in return. Its a common theme, hence why the ol commune has become its own epicentre of community-focused fundraising events, from the community, for the community. And with the holidays fast approaching, Sookies are restless to give: to the poor, to the hungry, to the homeless and everyone else in need. Heather Cochrane is such a Sookie, who, since her arrival in Sooke over three years ago, has rooted herself into the local community from participating in Sookes Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue squad, organizing events such as a silent auction and dinner at the Legion, and running her own mobile aesthetics business. This year though, she wanted to do something different: she partnered up with colleague Rachel Dyer, owner of the Sooke Health and Fitness gym, and decided to organize a fundraiser for the Sooke Food Bank. Starting today and every Wednesday for the month of November from noon to 6 p.m., the duo will be at the gym receiving donations such as canned food or other non-perishable items (cereals in particular), while Cochrane will be doing a facial wax to anyone interested, with all proceeds from that going to the Food Bank as well. When I think about all the people that havent got anything to eat day to day just makes me sad, Cochrane said, adding that this time is so critical for the homeless and the less fortunate, that its difficult to just sit idle by and do nothing. And for those who donate, as little as it is, every bit helps. Even if its a couple of cans, it adds up, Cochrane said.Dyer pointed out that as people walk into the gym, they dont necessarily have to get a wax or start working out, they can just simply walk in, drop off a non-perishable food item in the box, and be on their way. Mind you, big hearts wont go unrewarded anyone who has their waxing done and donates will be entered in a draw to win an extravagant gift basket. Like Cochrane, Dyer says the holidays is far too much of an important time to not help out.Especially coming up to Christmas too, its always hard to think that theres people out there that kind of take for granted that well have that nice Christmas dinner and others just struggle to put a dinner together in the first place.The duo hope that this initiative will help the Sooke Food Bank, and indeed, the local community at large to have a better, more fulfilling Christmas. If people have families, they try to buy something for the kids for Christmas, but then they have to wonder, do they buy food or do they buy gifts?, Dyer said.Both Cochrane and Dyer are also part of the same recently-formed Sooke Women in Business, a group where business owners can promote and support each others businesses, as well as seek opportunities in which they can help the community as well. Its all about helping each other out, it has to be this way, Cochrane said. We are our own little community, so if we, the community, doesnt do it, then nobody else is going to do it for us.news@sookenewsmirror.comA wax job for the food bankOctavian Lacatusu/Sooke News MirrorHeather Cochrane, left, and Rachel Dyer have started a fundraiser for the Sooke Food Bank.WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2015 I NEWS I SOOKENEWSMIRROR.COM 52.49%5 Year Fixed Rate2.00%5 Year Variable Ratewww.mortgagecentre.com250 642 63316658 Sooke Roadwww.wood-travel.comemail info@wood-travel.comSHOP LOCAL BOOK ONLINEYou can shop for your next sun vacation online atwww.wood-travel.comNot sure how it works?

Those questions were tackled at an economic symposium hosted by the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce last month attended by business and political leaders.The forum was the first step in creating an economic initiative for the town, with the second step to implement an action plan and spin some of the ideas into motion. Chief among the ideas was to create a West Coast experience, something chamber of commerce president Sean Dyble said needs time and refinement before it can materialize.A West Coast experience needs to be built from our core and refined to something specific, he said, adding that many of the ideas that came forth were general in nature. Another idea that also resonated with many was lobbying to open a Canada Customs office in Sooke, a concept that, while unexplored, may be beneficial to locals here and across the border.People identified the need to be able to use Sooke as an entry point from the U.S., so that someone can pick up the phone when they come to Sooke by water or by helicopter, they can call a customs officer to meet them where they arrive, Dyble said, adding that another idea that spawned from the discussion was building a helipad in Sooke so people can fly from either Seattle or anywhere in the pacific northwest.Nothing on the agenda has materialized however, and Dyble said the chamber is in the process of reviewing the list of projects before deciding which ones to implement into its action plan. In January, the chamber will host a public forum where people can provide feedback on what will be proposed in the action plan, with its sole focus being growth.Growth will happen in Sooke, and is happening, and its the communitys job and interest that we guide development to suit our needs, Dyble said. He also pointed towards the completion of the roundabout and the town core improvement project, adding that it would mark a great start to a new era.We want to use the [downtown improvement] project thats underway now as the start of the momentum to get other projects done in Sooke that the community has identified as important, Dyble said. But, like everything else, nothing comes without its challenges. Dyble said the biggest so far for the chamber is available resources such as sufficient hands on deck, as well as having enough time.Dyble pointed out that part of the chambers future agenda is looking towards other organizations within the community who have the resources as well to help take on the proposed projects. news@sookenewsmirror.comChamber of commerce eyes future economic developmentDay-long symposium sets in motion possible economic initiatives6 I NEWS I SOOKENEWSMIRROR.COM WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 2015Drivers Slow down!

The Paddle is a two-hour celebration by canoe (or any other paddleable boat) of that section of the Peace River that would be under 100 feet of water if the province of B.C. persists with its plan to build the Site C dam.From the people who spoke to the crowd of 1,000 after the paddle, including several local and provincial native leaders, a former head of the B.C. ALR and Dr. David Suzuki, I learned that the section of the Peace River Valley that is slated to be drowned is not only prime alluvial soil-rich agricultural land (13,000 acres or 83 kms. of land would be impacted by the dam, enough to feed 1 million people), but it also is an important wildlife corridor. It is a grizzly crossing, ungulates use the big islands in the middle of the river to calve every spring, fish migrate up the river and there are 38 eagle nests in trees destined to be chopped down along the banks of just the few kilometers we traversed. The dam would also impact the Athabasca delta downstream, a designated UNESCO heritage site crucial for migratory wildlife and birds.The 100 feet of water would also cover traditional lands and sacred sites of the West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations and the McLeod Lake Indian Band, none of which have given their approval of the proposed dam.When I mentioned to family and friends that I was headed to the paddle, several asked me but dont you use electricity? To that important question I can only say that the recommendation of the Joint Review Panel was that because the province had not demonstrated that there is an actual need for the extra electricity and because of the projected cost (at $8.8 billion it is the most expensive project in B.C. history) they could not recommend the project.

Itll be that, if drivers learn how to use a roundabout. When the work crews are off duty, the construction progress thus far has us now using the roundabout as a finished roundabout.The signs are clearly posted: Yield to traffic in the roundabout. This isnt happening. There are drivers on Sooke Road coming from the west and heading east, and vice versa, to wherever theyre going, that somehow figure they still have the right of way because theyre on Sooke Road, and the roundabout just means they have to dip slightly to the right, and then carry on. They seem to think that anyone already in the roundabout has to wait for them to go through. Wrong. Ive nearly lost my front fenders to these types of drivers five times now, and the project isnt even completed yet. Im sure Im not the only one with the same experience recently. I hope Sooke RCMP send a member to sit somewhere near the new Royal Bank building to monitor this crap, and hands out expensive tickets to the clueless drivers who dont grasp what a roundabout is for. If what Ive seen so far isnt fixed, ICBC isnt going to like the claims tally stemming from this new roundabout. Garnet SaundersSookeMotorists must yield to emergency vehiclesRe: Ambulance response times getting slower (News, Nov. 4)I have been a paramedic for 30 years. A disturbing and frustrating pattern of driver behavior has become so commonplace as to be the norm, rather than the exception: I refer to the almost universal failure of motorists to exercise their legal obligations to yield to emergency vehicles that are displaying flashing red lights.The law requires that motorists pull over parallel to the closest edge of the road and stop until an emergency vehicle has passed. It does not state that one merely changes lanes, or that one stops suddenly in the middle of the road or blocks an intersection, your obligation is to yield to the emergency vehicle not the other way around.With the propensity for cities to use medians at intersections, it is becoming increasingly more difficult and dangerous for emergency vehicle operators to respond. As with divided highways or one way streets, the closest edge of the road may be on the left, not the right. if traffic would pull over to their closest road edge, even the largest fire trucks can pass.Barely one driver in 20 fulfills their legal obligations to properly yield. Each and every motorist out there has the opportunity to help, or profoundly hinder responses by all emergency services. there is nothing more tragic and frustrating than trying to reach a time sensitive medical emergency but cannot because drivers refuse to yield, block intersections or simply lock up their brakes in the middle of the road. It is not just other drivers that are the problem. I ask you to evaluate your own role in helping emergency responders get to where they are needed. Ian HamesParamedicChase, B.C.Fletcher an apologist for the B.C. LiberalsRe: Silence of the email servers has a deafening sound (B.C. Views, Nov. 4)In his latest opinion piece, Tom Fletcher once again attempts to explain away and apologize for the egregious behavior of the B..C Liberals and Premier Clark. Many journalists and others have spent months, even years, wondering why their FOI requests have gone unanswered, and B.C. residents are continually left in the dark. Now it turns out, the government claims to no longer keep records of what it does, a juvenile and patently absurd excuse along the lines of a dog ate my homework. According to Mr. Fletcher, the bad guys are not the ones hiding and keeping important information from the public, whom the MLAs are elected to serve, but those making the FOI requests and criticizing the lack of oversight and reportage. In light of the breath of fresh air which is the new federal Liberal government and our new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Mr. Fletchers article so clearly represents the type of government 70 percent of Canadians just elected to remove, the stifling, controlling, fascistic Harper government. This article makes abundantly WE ASKED YOU: Are health-care services adequate in Sooke? Im not entirely sure, but the ambulance response time is a bit concerning.

AT THE LEGION CENOTAPHOctavian LacatusuSooke News MirrorOften when we think about the Second World War, we start to picture war machines, on land, in the air, on the water and under the water, as well as the mass loss of human life and utter destruction. Like any story, however, there are multiple sides to what one sees, such as the countless clerks keeping track of numbers and paperwork, or the men and women working in factories day and night to keep planes, tanks, trucks and other equipment rolling out. Then, you have another group, whose duties, albeit not behind a rifle, were just as important back on the home field, such as making sure all the facilities were clean, and functional, or that food was always available, and that everyones belongings were kept safe while they were out in the European war theatre. Such a fella is Peter Pidwerbeski, 92, one of Sookes last remaining Second World War veterans. After being drafted into the infantry on Jan. 11, 1943, he became a lance corporal, training in B.C. until being shipped over to England for further training.Before heading out, he spent a good part of it here in Sooke, and in Sidney, where they were just starting to build the airport. There, he met a couple of his friends from the Prairies who were part of the air force stationed there.But despite being so close to the unfolding theatre of war in Europe, Pidwebeski spent the entirety of that year in England, training and helping out at various intervals, such as working the night shift at one of the hostels where soldiers came over for a vacation or two-week leave.We had to help them, there were only two of us and we had to look after the boys signing in and coming out. I was a whole year there at YMCA in England.Pidwebeski also spent a significant amount of time in Aldershot, which had one of the biggest army camps in all of England. There, the Canadian-British training process was what he called tough.We had an English sergeant-major, in the morning hed get up, and come and holler his head off, get everybody up in a jiffy, he was very sharp. Not a lot of people liked him, he said, chuckling. Just 21 years old, Pidwerbeski just felt good to be involved in the war effort.I was excited going in the army, a young fella, finally going on a new adventure, because really, there wasnt much work anyway anywhere in those years, he said, adding that he initially put in an application in to join the air force, did an exam and an eye test. A week later though, he didnt get a call from the air force, but from the army. I didnt bother to ask why they never called me back, but it wouldnt do me any good anyway.Once he found himself in England, being ever so close to Europe, he wanted to join the ranks on the battlefield, but recalls that was short-lived, as a knee injury kept him from being called in. Mind you, being behind the lines still had its hardships. I lost two of my best friends. I wish I was down there fighting with them, he said. After the war was finished, the army wanted soldiers for auxiliary services to go to Europe and England, help the Salvation Army, Knights of Columbus and YMCA. On Oct. 1, 1946, he was discharged, heading home shortly after that. My highlight, and indeed everybodys highlight, was VE Day. A bunch of us went out from pub to pub, drinking beer and just having a great time, Pidwerbeski said, smiling. Born in the small town of Redfield, Sask. Pidwerbeski returned home after the war, but not much was waiting for him in terms of an occupation. And even though the military asked him to come back, he refused. I was there to do my time, but then when I came home and there was nothing there either, then I was thinking about joining up again, but then I got a job, and forgot all about it, he said.And the job surely came a-knockin, after moving to North Battleford, Sask., he worked for Canadian National in the roundhouse, servicing steam locomotives. After that, he once again went where the bread was, working as a brakeman in Rainy River, Ont. Later after that, he worked in the mines in Red Lake. Finally, he picked up a job back in B.C. with B.C. hydro as a blaster and machine operator until he retired. Still, the question remains on his war past: would he do it again if he was 21?Yes. I would go back, because I would have a much better education. Living on the farm, all we had was a school house, and the nearest high school was 30 miles out of town, he said. Even though Pidwebeski says he never really thought about going back, the military did provide him with a life skill set which he uses to this very day.You learn a lot of things.

Something that made you salivate so badly you just wanted to go on a limb and have a lick, or a bite, at the expense of falling asleep on the toilet that night? It would sure make an interesting story, especially before dinner. But this time, its not the case, because this event, which is organized by the Sooke Fine Arts, will allow you to both dine and admire the art of food, and how you can turn your cooking pan into art. For this event, which will take place at the Sooke Harbour House on Nov. 22 from 2 to 4 p.m., its important to keep one thing in mind: the visual sensation of a dish is as important as its flavour. This is also a chance to impress your guests at the next dinner party with attractive table settings and decorations, artistic serving vessels and an attractive presentation that will blur the line between food and art.Visitors will also learn about table decoration and table setting, and plating, both single and buffet-style. For that extra touch, door prizes are also available, made possible by local Sookies, Phoebe Dunbar and Judith Hale. Space is limited to just 30 people, so be sure to register ($20 per person) before Nov. 18.

Little did she know that her life was going to change forever in a matter of moments. Upon landing on a small airstrip, the plane, a four-seater Cessna 172, hit a downdraft and windshear. The pilot became unsettled, and aborted the landing attempt so he could loop around and try again. Only, he didnt have enough thrust to pull up, causing the aircraft to stall towards a big mountainous ravine. Knowing what was coming, Benjamin Philip, her now-husband, who was sitting shotgun, took his arm and put it around the back of the seat and held her hand, saying, This is it. At that point I sort of felt calm, as there was nothing more I could do, it was almost surreal and peaceful at the same time, she said. The plane struck the top of a tree and plummeted right down to the forest floor, causing all three occupants to lose consciousness in the impact. I woke up feeling really surprised, I kind hugged myself, thinking oh my gosh, Im alive but then I started to panic- Lindy PhilipSquished in the back seat of the aircraft wreckage, Lindy was the first to wake up. I woke up feeling really surprised, I kind hugged myself, thinking oh my gosh, Im alive but then I started to panic, she said, recalling that her first instinct was to wake the pilot and her husband up. Pumped with adrenaline and shock, the three managed to get out. A mountain biker found them, ensuing a full emergency response of 32 rescue workers. The pilot was airlifted due to his critical condition, but Lindsay didnt want to set foot on an aircraft again. She spent three days in the hospital trying to recover from mostly soft tissue damage and broken ribs. But the emotional trauma lingered, and after moving to Sooke from Vancouver two years after the incident, Lindy thought maybe it was better to start talking about it, to get it off her chest. And that she did she started a Facebook page called Plane Crash Survivors, hoping to meet other survivors or individuals who suffered a loss due to a plane crash. Today, the private group stands at 83 members today, growing with an almost bittersweet element to it. Philip thought she could do even more than just talk about it, why not share these amazing, and chill-inducing stories with the world. In that time, she met Robin Suerig Holleran, a fellow plane crash survivor living in New York City. The two decided to start interviewing a wide variety of survivors from all over the world and help them tell their harrowing stories, many still too painful to bring up to this day.For some people it was painful, because to retell it was like reliving it, she said, adding that part of the reason it was hard to go through with it was because she had been in that situation herself as well.The collaborative effort gave way to a book, Bracing For Impact, a 200-page collection of plane crash survivor experience, as well as a window into how these individuals cope with their trauma years after the fact, including one chapter titled, Why was I Spared which focuses on survivor guilt. With the book now out, Philip feels relieved her story, and indeed the story of all the air crash survivors shes spoken to, is finally out. Despite some trepidation from that fateful moment 19 years ago, she continues to fly, albeit mostly with bigger aircraft such as commercial airliners, and not before a little mediation and a calmative before longer flights.

Philip Yancey writes, Im convinced that human beings instinctively seek two things. We long for meaning, a sense that our life somehow matters to the world around us. And we long for community, a sense of being loved.According to Jesus, love is so important, that it is the acid test of whether or not Christianity is authentic. The night before he died Jesus told his followers: As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. Gospel of John, chapter 13, verse 34-35.People form their opinions about God from many sources. But God speci cally tells us that at the core of his being, he is love. And Jesus said, a person can know that what I did to rescue humanity is for real, when you see how my followers love one another and others. Whats love got to with it? Jesus answer is - everything.

The seventh of nine children, Iris was born in Kamsack, Saskatchewan and grew up in Saskatchewan prairie towns, including Punnichy, Wadena, and Abernethy. Iris attended Nurses training at Regina General Hospital, graduating in 1950. She married Gordon Cook in Melfort in 1952 and they moved to Alberta, where Gordon worked in the oil elds and Iris continued nursing. They welcomed two sons and a daughter and moved from Red Deer to Slave Lake and spent many happy years there before making a life-changing move to Tono, Vancouver Island in 1973. Iris and her family eventually relocated to Victoria, BC where she continued her nursing career. She moved to Sooke in 1980 where she met her companion of later years, Albert Brohman. Iris had a life-long love of music and shared this love with many of the senior residents in Sooke. She enjoyed skiing, biking, square-dancing, gardening and travelling across Canada. Iris moved to Ayre Manor in 2014 and her family is grateful for the care she received there.Iris was predeceased by her husband, Gordon Cook, her companion, Albert Brohman, brother Victor, sisters Zoe Whatley, Donna Lawrence, Wilda Norum, and Wanda Stueck.

First goal was assisted by a beautiful cross from Emma Chalmers right to the feet of striker Faith Knoles who took a turn and knocked it in. Second goal was by permitted player from the U14 girls, Brittney Homer, assisted by Grace Bishop. Third goal was a penalty kick scored by Faith Knoles.Last weekend the Wildcats continued on their winning ways at the University of Victoria with a 2-1 win over Bays U15.The Bays got the first goal halfway into the first half. This did not stop the Sooke Wildcats from making every effort to tie it up and they did it before halftime with Emma Chalmers setting up Faith Knoles for a beauty goal. The last 15 minutes of the game saw Chalmers race down the left wing, deke, shoot and score to get her first goal of the season.It was an outstanding team effort midfielders Grace Bishop, Alex Peters, Marie Allen and Addison Jarvis dug deep to set up the play. Solid defending by Georgia Jackson, Shae Yates, Sky Langdon, Hannah Grabove and Sydney Cummings shutting down the Bays offence. Goalkeeper Ella Dennett kept the Wildcats in the lead by making some amazing saves at the last ditch effort by Bays, said coach Laura Lockhart.Meanwhile, Sooke United lost its fourth straight game Sunday with a 3-1 loss against Sannich's Lakehill Hooligans in Vancouver Island Soccer League 4B play. Sookes goal was scored by Kirk Ward.SportsU15 Wildcats begin season with 2-0 recordKevin LairdSooke News MirrorThe Sooke Thunderbirds are discovering the only way to the top is with hard work and perseverance.The Vancouver Island Hockey Association Atom A squad struggled at the beginning of the season, but is now beginning to see the fruits of its labour.Blown out by Tier 1 clubs and easily beating Tier 3 clubs, the Thunderbirds are hoping to be selected to the Tier 2 division later this week.The coaching staff decided that wed rather lose by two goals in every game and eventually win those games then be winning 10-0 games all year long, said head coach Nick Szadkowski of his desire to be named to the Tier 2 division.If selected to Tier 2, Szadkowski said Sooke would likely play in a division with Nanaimo, Saanich and Victoria Racquet Club.He said most of the games the Thunderbirds lost this season, wasnt because the other team was better, it mostly was we just didnt show up for those games.From the start of the season until now, the players have bought in to the idea that hard work will bring team success.For many players, this is the first time theyve played competitive hockey. Atom players are nine and 10 year olds.In the beginning it was tough and lots of hard work. Theyre now seeing the hard work paying off, Szadkowski said.And theres nowhere for this team to go but up.Szadkowski is confident the Thunderbirds can win their division this year and possibly go farther.I cant see why we cant continue to win Tier 2, if we keep doing what were doing right now, but as long as we inch forward Im happy with that too, he said.klaird@blackpress.caBirds making big strides in Atom A playBoys side playing well with hard work and perseverance, says coachPuck battleSooke Thunderbirds forward Autumn Jones, right, fights for puck possession against Peninsula Eagles Cassidy Williams during the Fall Female Face-Off hockey tournament at SEAPARC Leisure Centre arena on Friday.

This time of year anglers are shortening trolling leaders and tend to run the gear closer to the boat to increase action for the winter chinook salmon swimming closer to the bottom. These smaller winter or feeder chinook salmon are known for their high omega oil content, dark red flesh and, of coarse, great eating. Winter trollers usually find these salmon close to the bottom in 120 to 160 feet of water. Sooke harbour mouth, Trailer Park and Otter Point are traditionally great spots to find these fish, trolling glow, or glow green anchovy teaser heads, hootchies or your favorite erratic spoons on three or four-foot leaders. Halibut fishing in our area has been very good. Those venturing out are reporting one to four halibut per trip, from 15 to 60 pounds, coming from spots close to the Sooke harbour mouth. Anchoring in more than 200 feet of water, setting down herring, octopus or salmon bellies on spreader bar systems has been productive. There are some good tides in November where the current will be slower to allow longer periods for fishers to keep their bait on the bottom where the halibut are feeding. Crab fishing in Sooke harbour remains consistant. We have been picking up two or three keeper-sized male Dungeness crabs while out on our fishing excursions. Those fishing off the Rotary pier pulling traps are probably doing better.

Fleischauer, 71, used to climbing on his ladder to do yard work and taking care of the home hes lived in for the past 40 years.But roughly two weeks ago, while he was putting a tarp over the roof of his home to protect it from the heavy rain and wind, he slipped and fell 16 feet, landing on the concrete.I had the ladder properly positioned but for some reason, all of a sudden it rotated and dumped me off, Fleischauer said, noting he fell onto his ankle and then his hip. My eye sight went all blurry as a result of the shock.A neighbour who witnessed the accident called an ambulance and he was rushed to Victoria General Hospital.Fleischauer broke his pelvis and had to have surgery.

This month, Island Health is kicking off a month-long public awareness campaign about preventing falls in the community.Heather Fudge, clinical nurse specialist in seniors health for Island Health, said if seniors (aged 80 or older) fall, they could be in the hospital roughly two-and-a-half times longer than an adult.There are many things that we cant control as we get older in terms of health and what effects us, but falls are 99.9 per cent preventable, she said.They can really change someones life not for the better.In 2014-15, 3,300 seniors (aged 65 and older) were hospitalized due to fall-related injures.Fudge said there are a number of minor things seniors can do to prevent falls and subsequent injuries such as keeping active to keep muscles strong, cleaning up tripping hazards, getting eyes checked and wearing glasses or hearing aids when applicable, and having doctors review medications annually to ensure youre only taking the required medications.As we get older, theres most risk of falling and the effects are more devastating because were not as resilient as we were when you were younger, she said, noting 70 per cent of residents in care homes are there because of a fall.For more information on how to prevent falls visit findingbalance.ca.Island Health campaign aims to prevent fallsAs we get older, theres most risk of falling and the effects are more devastating.

We wish that we could identify the young naval cadets and their leader in this photo, but so far havent been able to do so. If anyone can help, please contact us. While the fence-protected cenotaph at the corner of Murray and Sooke roads was framed by evergreen trees in this photo, the far background may not be readily visible, though it is actually the outline of Mount Maguire in East Sooke. Possibly the reason for the fence may have been as protection from roaming domestic cattle and other animals as there was no pound law until much later on.The monument stood on the corner of the large farm of John and Margaret Murray, brother Tom and sister Janet Murray, acreage which much later was intersected by Lincroft, Goodmere and Horne roads. Recently, this street corner has been the site of several commercial and medical enterprises, which began with Dr. Norman Goodwin initiating a development there in the 1950s.Today on Remembrance Day when we gather in central Sooke along the streets at this very corner and watch as the marching groups turn up onto Otter Point Road and onto Eustace to fall into place at the newest location of the cenotaph, Im sure we reflect on the generations of patriotic Sooke-area citizens who have always continued to pay respect to the fallen and to those who protect us. Our population of course is much greater today; in 1920 there were but a few hundred souls here.After the development of the property on the Murray Road corner, the cenotaph was re-located to the corner of Sheilds Road on Sooke Community Association land. This is the spot where the three-storey commercial building was erected a few years ago, after the cenotaph had been moved once again, to its present fine location on the grounds of the Sooke Branch No. 54 of the Royal Canadian Legion. The photo came to us from the collection of Helen Welsh Yost, granddaughter of James Welsh, one of Sookes first settlers, who came here from Ireland in the 1860s. Elida Peers is the historian of Sooke Region Museum.Sooke naval cadets at the cenotaph, 1920Young naval cadets proudly assemble at Sookes first cenotaph placement in 1920.Sooke Region MuseumThe Sooke Family Resources Society has launched a new initiative, this time with a video to promote its thrift shop, as well as its role in the community.And its getting a favourable response: the three-minute video has been shortlisted in the B.C. Hydro Community Champions competition to win $10,000. The video focuses on SFRS new Thrift Shop, which collects, distributes and sells used clothing, small appliances and household items.

Sooke RCMP and the Capital Regional District Integrated Road Safety Unit will join with police forces across the province and ICBC targeting drivers travelling at unsafe speeds.Speed-related crashes that result in injury or fatality increase by over 50 per cent in B.C. between November and January. About 40 of these crashes occur on Vancouver Island each month.Driving too fast for the road conditions is a factor in most speed related crashes, according to ICBC.Tips for Island drivers:n Consider using your headlights whenever weather is poor and visibility is reduced not only at night to help you see ahead and be seen by other drivers.n Heavy rain can seriously reduce visibility and make road surfaces more difficult to stop on. Make sure your wipers are in good condition and increase your following distance to at least four seconds.n When fog hits, turn your headlights on or use fog lights if its very foggy. Use your defroster to keep your windows clear. n When temperatures are near freezing, be aware of black ice. While its impossible to see ahead of time, if you notice ice build-up on your windshield, theres likely black ice on the road.
