Sookes rider, Const. Steven Martindale, said the ride, which began on Sept. 23 at Port Alice, has been emotional. Its been pretty awe-inspiring, and words cant really address everything thats been going on for two weeks, he said. The physical turmoil they kind of prepare us for, but the emotional side of things, you know, they cant.When the ride became physically gruelling, Martindale thought of his junior riders, Daisy Irwin and Joel Dorval. Ive got two pictures of my junior riders on my bike and anytime during the bike hills, I looked down at them and it felt like they were pushing my bike for me. The 14-day cycling journey across Vancouver Island ended on Oct. 5 in Victoria. Pictured: Riders are greeted by Sooke students as the arrive at Ecole Poirier. Const.

She added another use for the forum could be to arrange last minute play-dates. </p><p>Im sure [the forum] could be anything peo-ple wanted it to be, she said. </p><p>Im hoping that peo-</p><p>ple will find it all useful. There are a lot of young families and I wish some website existed when we moved here two years ago.</p><p>The original site, which was designed to only be a forum simi-lar to Craigslist or Kijiji, was created by another parent who has since moved away. </p><p>After taking the reins, Cortens is currently operating as a one-woman show, listing local events for children on the website daily. </p><p>Right now I have a three year old and a newborn so what I know about is toddler and baby stuff, Cor-tens said, adding she would love for other parents to help with the websites adminis-tration. </p><p>I would love other people to be adding to the site as well -- people who know about older kids events because I </p><p>dont know too much about that at this point.</p><p>She stated the web-site is just another resource for local par-ents, and hopes it can be a tool that will help connect parents with similarly aged children. </p><p>Theres already a really good real-life com-munity and I wouldnt </p><p>want it to replace that, but this will kind of help people connect in real life. </p><p>To check out the website, visit: www.sookefamilies.com</p><p>To become a part of the project, contact Cortens at: allie@sooke-families.com</p><p>SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2012 www.sookenewsmirror.com NEWS 3</p><p>Up Sooke</p><p>Thumbs Up!</p><p>three acres, and zoned in the Agricultural Land Reserve. </p><p>We believe we have to own the property so they dont have to deal with those tenuous leases, Wittich said.</p><p>Residents have expressed concern about a transfer site </p><p>being moved in on the ALR, but Wittich said it is currently just an option, as further research still needs to be done. SDL has put the site on hold with a deposit. </p><p>SDL also still needs support from the Dis-trict of Sooke, and approval from the pro-vincial government to rezone the land. </p><p>Im not optimistic they would do it and Im not personally con-vinced this is a right place for this, Milne said of rezoning ALR land. </p><p>According to Tra-vis Butler, part owner of the Butler Brothers, Sooke Disposal was given six months notice to vacate the land due </p><p>to an ongoing study of the riparian land.</p><p>Theres definitely no issue of contaminants that were of concern to us. Its simply the ripar-ian issues that were looking to adhere to on our property, he said. </p><p>Butler Brothers is conducting a study on the riparian land the company resides on, </p><p>and the protection on nearby water courses. </p><p>Weve embarked on a study looking at the Alderbook creek chan-nel and a potential relo-cation of the current stream channel, and an enhancement back to fish-bearing (water), he said. </p><p>The creek is directly adjacent to the prop-erty that they are cur-rently renting from us and the relocation would put the channel going through that por-tion of property.</p><p>Were trying to be good stewards of the lands here and its unfortunate that we havent been able to accommodate Sooke Disposal in the mean-time. </p><p>Garbage disposal sites Contd from page 1</p><p>...
