    New dump site being consideredShort-term solution may be in the worksSharron HoSooke News Mirror

    With the closure of the Sooke Disposal drop-off site on Sept. 30, the company is currently looking for short-term alternatives.

    According to Doug Wit-tich, environmental con-sultant and Sooke Disposal spokesman, the company has recently sent in an appli-cation to council to use the industrially zoned property at the corner of Sooke Road and Idlemore Road as a tem-porary transfer station.

    The area measures approximately three quar-ters of a hectare, which Wit-tich said can adequately ful-fill the needs of local resi-dents in terms of garbage and recycling.

    But the site will not be able to satisfy construction companies that may be dis-posing of items like wood waste and concrete.

    The owners of the land have no problem, theyre just not going to let any-body go on that land if the district finds it to be illegal, Wittich said.

    According to Wittich, one of the problems Sooke Dis-posal faces is the lack of

    properly zoned land for a drop-off site in Sooke.

    It may be the act that there is no land in Sooke currently slated to allow a transfer station, Wit-tich explained, adding that includes the Butlers Broth-ers property where SDL recently vacated.

    Sooke has not set apart land or had never thought about acknowledging M2, M3 or M1 commercial des-ignation, Wittich said.

    That is a big issue and thats one thats going to be looked at fairly quick, he added.

    According to Mayor Wen-dal Milne, it does appear that Sooke has not zoned any land as M3 heavy indus-trial for a transfer station.

    We have a concern that garbage could be strewn about, (and) what were going to do is work with any of the private companies to get a place, but its got to be the right place, Milne said.

    I want people to under-stand that we take this seri-ously and we are looking at avenues, but we want to make sure that its done right and from a private enterprise perspective.

    As for the long-term, SDL is currently eyeing a piece of property up Sooke River Road, measuring about

    Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock riders arrived in Sooke on Oct. 3 to a barrage of cheers from local students and residents at Ecole Poirier. 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. Steven Martindale clutches his children under each arm after arriving in Sooke.

    A local mother of two young children has revived an online forum in hopes of developing a network for parents in the region.

    Allie Cortens is cur-rently operating a site for parents in Sooke by parents in Sooke.

    The website is a three-part project, which includes a home page where daily events for children are listed, an informational page and a forum.

    Cortens said parents can use the forum to put postings on items they would like to pur-chase, exchange or sell. She added another use for the forum could be to arrange last minute play-dates.

    Im sure [the forum] could be anything peo-ple wanted it to be, she said.

    Im hoping that peo-

    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.

    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.

    After taking the reins, Cortens is currently operating as a one-woman show, listing local events for children on the website daily.

    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.

    I would love other people to be adding to the site as well -- people who know about older kids events because I

    dont know too much about that at this point.

    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.

    Theres already a really good real-life com-munity and I wouldnt

    want it to replace that, but this will kind of help people connect in real life.

    To check out the website, visit: www.sookefamilies.com

    To become a part of the project, contact Cortens at: allie@sooke-families.com

    Thumbs Up!

    three acres, and zoned in the Agricultural Land Reserve.

    We believe we have to own the property so they dont have to deal with those tenuous leases, Wittich said.

    Residents have expressed concern about a transfer site

    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.

    SDL also still needs support from the Dis-trict of Sooke, and approval from the pro-vincial government to rezone the land.

    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.

    According to Tra-vis Butler, part owner of the Butler Brothers, Sooke Disposal was given six months notice to vacate the land due

    to an ongoing study of the riparian land.

    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.

    Butler Brothers is conducting a study on the riparian land the company resides on,

    and the protection on nearby water courses.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Garbage disposal sites Contd from page 1

    ... Im not personally convinced this is a right place for this.

  • 1912 2012 - MARGISON HOUSE

    Elegant and substan-tial when it was built as a family home 100 years ago, Margison House remains both elegant and substantial today.

    Could businessman John Yeats Margison have possibly envi-sioned 100 years ago that the home he meant for his familys enjoy-ment in the centre of the quiet village of Sooke would remain central to Sookes core develop-ment a century later?

    The 1912 photo shows the house under construction by the Richardson brothers, recently arrived from England. Screened from Highway 14 by large Douglas firs, the house has an atmosphere of quiet seclusion, almost an oasis, a feature that has been appreciated by its residents over the years.

    Its tradition of occu-pancy by successful business families was begun by realtor Margi-son, who raised his five children there before relocating to San Diego, California in 1918. Pur-chased by the Milligans who operated a log-ging enterprise further west, for a few years the house was rented out, tenants including businessman James Wilham who operated

    the Red & White Store at the north-east corner of Sooke and Church Roads (the stucco building still stands).

    For the next two decades another local business entrepreneur, Fred Thornber and his wife Elsie owned the house. Subsequent owners were pole con-tractor Eric Bernard and his wife Marjorie, followed by Frank Ellis who ran a tearoom there.

    After teh Second World War, more expansion took place in Sooke, with business-man Bob Gibson from the prairies acquir-ing the historic store at the north-west cor-

    ner of Sooke and Otter Point Roads, turning it into Gibsons Shopping Centre. Bob and his wife Julie made their home in the Margison House, selling in 1968 to Alan Bud Smith and his wife Clare. Bud was superintendent at the busy Sooke Forest Products Sawmill on Goodridge peninsula. As the Smiths had a large family, they par-ticularly enjoyed the spacious gardens and tennis courts.

    Current owners of the house are Marvin and Sylvia Hallgren, who

    have not only raised their family in the spa-cious home but for a time used it for busi-ness purposes as well, with Sylvia hosting the elegant Margison Tea-house, and Marvin con-ducting his law prac-tice across the hallway. Nowadays Sylvia is able to devote herself more to her two passions, her grandchildren and her art, while Marvs law office has moved down the street.

    LOOKING BACKA trip through the

    Sooke News Mirrors archives.

    Oct. 6, 1993Outreach reaches

    out to Sookes unem-ployed

    Western Community Outreach is reaching out to Sooke.

    The employment-aid organization opened an office at the commu-nity school portable at EMCS yesterday.

    Outreach staff will spend at least one afternoon a week there helping the local unem-ployed get themselves jobs.

    What weve wanted to provide is a place in Sooke for Sooke people to have the opportu-nity to use our service, employment counsel-lor Janice Booth said. If the demand is there, Im very willing to spend the whole day in Sooke. Were quite open and flexible.

    In basic terms, West-ern Community Out-reach teaches the unemployed how to find jobs.

    Staff show people how to use a resume as a tool for marketing themselves, and help prepare them for job interviews. They help clients determine job search strategies and decide what fields they are suited for. They pro-

    vide training and edu-cation information, and act as a reference for employers looking for workers.

    Oct. 2, 1996Rates to rise for

    water work

    Sooke residents can expect further water rate increases early next year as the Greater Victoria Water District takes a step towards upgrading the com-munitys sagging water system.

    The GVWD board hired an engineer-ing consultant Friday to design upgrades intended to improve the communitys water service.

    But not everyone is pleased that Western Communities ratepay-ers, who are provided retail water service by the GVWD, will be asked to pick up the $158,746 tab.

    Its bad enough for us to be asked to pay for the upgrade itself, but to be asked to pay for the study and the consulting services for the upgrade is adding insult to injury, said Stu Whitney, a member of the committee for Provision of Useable Fire Hydrants.

    GVWD Chief Commis-sioner Jack Hull said the design costs will be borne by users and

    developers because part of the (problem) is related to growth in the community.

    Oct. 8, 1997School ground smok-

    ers caught puffing will be slapped with fine

    Anyone caught lighting up on school grounds is now subject to a $50 fine.

    That means ciga-rette smokers, who were banished from school property last September will have to continue to feed their addictions off campus.

    As a result of a Capi-tal Regional District bylaw, students at Edward Milne commu-nity school have been ordered to be at least 50 feet away from the school before they light up.

    Now, anyone caught smoking on school grounds risks a $50 ticket from bylaw enforcement officers, CRD public health edu-cator Dianne Stevenson explained.

    Its just so that they will see that it isnt a joke and there are con-sequences and if theyre caught breaking the law theyll have to pay the consequences, Ste-venson said. Basically the majority of the kids are certainly complying and it isnt a huge prob-lem.

    In special circum-stances, school admin-istration could report an incident and a ticket could be issued after the fact, Stevenson said, stressing it would have to be a special cir-cumstance.

    Oct. 12, 2011 House fire regarded

    as suspicious

    An early morning fire at a residence on Rhodonite Drive com-pletely destroyed a home and it is being regarded as suspi-cious.

    Sooke Fire Rescue was called out at 2:23 a.m. and when they arrived at 6768 Rhodon-ite, the house was fully engulfed in flames.

    The fire was blow-ing out the roof, said Sooke Fire Chief Steve Sorensen. We evacu-ated the houses on either side.

    He went on to say that the roof collapsed within five minutes of the fire truck arriv-ing on the scene and Sorensen said it went bad from here.

    At 8 a.m. on Friday, firefighters were still on the scene securing it because, a few things dont add up, accord-ing to the chief.

    Arson is not ruled out at this point, he said.

    The homes on either

    side were not damaged by the fire, except for one which had the windows crack due to extreme heat of the fire.

    B.C. ViewsMy column on skills training a cou-

    ple of weeks ago gave short shrift to the NDP position: tax the banks and hand out grants for womens studies, sociology and other worth-less pursuits, while skilled jobs go begging.

    Thats a pretty crude caricature, so I sat down with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his legislature office last week to get a better sense of his thinking on the subject.

    Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades par-ticularly. He meets frequently with business people now, and his recent speeches emphasize that every one of them talks about the growing shortage of skilled employees.

    Dix credits Premier Christy Clark and jobs minister Pat Bell with mak-ing some good moves recently, announcing equipment upgrades for vocational programs around the province. He says its because the NDP have been pounding away at them for eight months about freez-ing advanced education spending in their March budget. Dix calls that a crucial mistake and predicts the gov-ernment will reverse it soon.

    So I think, if were going to have a mission for four years as a gov-ernment, if were elected, this is the mission: to start to address the skills shortage, he told me.

    In his speech to the recent munici-

    pal convention, and again at an NDP provincial council meeting, Dix zeroed in on B.C.s apprenticeship system. Since the B.C. Liberals took it from trade unions and set up a Crown corporation called the Indus-try Training Authority in 2004, the completion rate for apprentices has fallen to 37 per cent, he said.

    Dix assured me he isnt proposing to blow up the ITA, or hand control back to unions. They will have a voice, along with business.

    Speaking to the NDP executive, Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, presi-dent of the non-union Independent Contractors and Businesses Associ-ation, as the symbol of trades train-ing decline. Not surprisingly, Hoch-stein has a different take.

    The 37 per cent figure is mislead-ing, Hochstein said, because under the ITA there are currently 32,000 apprentices in the system, twice as many as when it was union con-trolled. Many drop out in the first year, and Alberta claims a better completion rate because they dont start counting until the second year. And when Dix touts Albertas man-datory trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to jour-neymen or registered apprentices of that trade.

    What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry, Hochstein said. So multi-skilling,

    multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and its stuck in the old craft system of training.

    The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll.

    Hochstein said the NDP talks a great game about getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one cant be hired.

    Dix agreed with me that the public school system has over-emphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply. As B.C. Federa-tion of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen them-selves often dont encourage their kids, because theyve been told all their lives that they are tool mon-keys in a dead-end job.

    And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dixs answer was a definite maybe.

    Skills trainingour mission, Dix declares

    Juan de Fuca happenings

    OUR VIEW

    With the recent improvements to Highway 14, the road to Port Renfrew and the Cowichan Valley is now easier than ever. Over $20 million has been poured into work on the bridge at Sombrio, paving the road and making the whole area more accessible. The work is not complete but it will be soon. The Pacific Marine Circle Route can now honestly become another access route in and out of Sooke and the lands north. This could also lead to a lot of increased tourism for Sooke. We need to get on the ball and figure out what these

    travellers would want to see and do. Sooke is situated as a perfect stopping off point between the Cowichan Valley and Victoria. We need to get them to stop.

    Port Renfrew itself is becoming a not so well kept secret. Tourism is and will continue to expand in

    the tiny hamlet for many reasons. The success developers found with the tiny vacation homes speaks volumes for the potential in the community. The gnarliest trees in Canada, the pristine wilderness and the great fishing all contribute. They may be a small community but they are tooting their assets and selling the natural resource aspect around them.

    East Sooke will soon have a Canadian Auxiliary Coast Guard training centre at Glenairley. Rumours have been flying for the past six months and it is now closer to reality. This will mean that auxiliary members from across Canada will come to our area to train.

    Mike Hicks, regional director for Juan de Fuca said he has been suportive ever since he was approached about the idea a couple of years ago.

    Not bad for the little fisherman from Port Renfrew.

  • Cat talesThis is the touching

    story of Mollys love for her children.

    It was six weeks ago when we first captured Molly, the mom of three kittens. As a matter of fact, it was Jeannie and Wayne, the owners of the land where she grew up, who brought her to our rehabilitation centre after her visit to the vet.

    Unfortunately, on this same day too many peo-ple had come to help us and; by accident, when we tried to pass her from the carrier to the cage she escaped. Until yesterday, we kept put-ting food out for her presuming she was hiding under a pallet, but she was not.

    In the meantime, after four weeks of the kittens being at the cen-tre, we needed to send them to different foster homes because the faci-lity is not insulated and it is too cold for them.

    Her third kitten still is living in the forest. One of Mollys kittens was adopted and another came to my house, 10 blocks away. However, four days ago, as a miracle, I saw Molly arriving exhausted and starving at my house. I could not believe my eyes when I saw her. My heart jumped with admiration for this good mom, who even feeling weak from the spaying, of having been lost and hungry for six weeks, and being unfa-miliar with the city had followed her kittens smell to my home.

    At that point, I deci-ded to set up the

    trap with the hope that she would go in, but suddenly, she disap-peared. I went to bed tortured by the idea of a feral cat wondering terrorized in the middle of a busy road and; as always, tired I fell sleep. Five hours later, I woke up all worried for her crossing the roads when I realized that over the night she had gone inside the trap by herself. I thanked all the spirits I know for this wonderful gift of life and ran to call her owners. Jeannie and Wayne are now adopting her and her only left kitten. They also have adopted another family of feral

    cats which are now all fixed. A happy end.

    Conclusion, day by day we are learning new ways of protecting these poor and defence-less animals which peo-ple have thrown out in our forests without com-passion. We are contri-buting and growing as a group of volunteers and donors because we all understand that is the only way we have to build a healthy community. With the help of the Sooke Dis-trict and of the Capital Regional District we are already attracting the attention of other cities on the island. The com-passion and respect

    to animals that we are teaching our children is reflecting in our great moral values as Soo-kies.

    Last, we have six kit-tens which have been through a lot and which deserve to find a good loving home? Can you open your home to one or two of them? They have been all spayed/neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, and deflea-ded.

    Tom Fletcher (Another View, Sooke News Mirror, Oct. 3) claims that a read of budgets shows that there have been no cuts to forest inventory work under the Libe-rals.

    However, Liberal forest minister Steve Thomson clearly disa-grees.

    In budget estimates this spring, I asked the minister to contrast the amount spent on forest inventory work in the 11 years the Liberals have been in power to the 1990s under the New Democrats.

    Minister Thomson admitted that under the New Democrats, the budget for forest inventory work aver-aged $23.6 million, while under the Libe-rals, the average was roughly $8.5 million. By any measure, thats a significant cut.

    More important than the dollar figures, however, is the qualita-tive record of the Libe-

    I think its okay. He should know everything about it,

  • rals on forest inventory. Independent experts, including the auditor general and the Forest Practices Board, have recently condemned the Liberal record on forest inventory and forest health. The audi-tor general said the Liberals had allowed a trillion-dollar asset the publicly owned forested lands to badly degrade, putting the future of our forest industry in jeopardy.

    Adrian Dix and the New Democrats believe that careful investment in our forests can serve to stabilize the forests today so that we can have stable industry in the future. The first step is recognizing the failings of the recent past and the Liberal cuts to forest inventory work count as one of those failings.

    Triathlon Survey Results

    For the information of those who dont receive the Otter Point & Shirley Residents & Ratepayers Association monthly newsletter and are interested in the results of OPSRRAs

    September triathlon survey, here is a sum-mary.

    There were 72 par-ticipants. We asked questions concern-ing the Aug. 12 Subaru Sooke Triathlon which required partial and total road closures along sections of High-way 14 west of Gordons Beach and through the communities of Shirley and Jordan River.

    Which community do you reside in? Shirley: 49 Otter Point: 20 Jor-dan River: 0 Other: 3.

    Were you aware that there was a triathlon race on Sunday, August 12th? Yes: 70 No: 2

    Were you inconve-nienced by the closure of parts of Otter Point Road and/or Highway 14? Yes: 47 No: 25.

    Should the cycling event be relocated from this portion of Highway 14? Yes: 51 No: 21

    If this route is main-tained, should response times for emergency vehicles be guaranteed by the event organiz-ers? Yes: 67 No: 5

    If this route is main-tained should local businesses be compen-sated for lost business? Yes: 48 No: 24

    If this route is main-tained should the event organizers re required to meet with represen-tatives from local fire,

    police and ambulance to agree on an emer-gency services plan for race day? Yes: 71 No: 1

    We also invited par-ticipants to add any comments. There were 50 comments received in four broad group-ings:

    Great event; worth closing the high-way for a short time. Emergency ser-vices concerns for both community and event participants.Not being able to get in or out of the community.Disruption to local businesses. The majority of the comments did not support of the contin-ued closure of High-way 14. All of the com-ments are available on the OPSRRA web site: This months survey is about water.

    Re: Editorial: A little of this, a little of that.

    Regarding the clo-sure of the Sooke Dis-posal yard I had read a suggestion that the district work with Sooke Disposal to per-haps get them set up in the industrial park land opposite Saseenos ele-mentary school, which I understand the dis-trict owns.

    It would seem to me that the location is as good as we can hope for (nobody really wants the dump next door) and the land sits vacant now when it could be bringing in some revenue for the town (we could charge more or less what But-ler was charging for his land).

    I hope the district is actively working with SDL to get them set up, as I am quite concerned about the illegal dump-ing of garbage. I have been the victim of a number of instances of illegal dumping at the back of my property (which funny enough

    FAQs About Church How do I go to church? asked one of the regulars

    on the early morning express. Most people take their car was the reply from across the aisle. Cute answer, but this is a legitimate question that many people in Sooke

    have as they compare churches with other service organisations. Most people in Sooke are spiritual and many are searching for MORE. Our churches in Sooke are not closed groups, instead our services are open to the public, which means that anyone may walk through the doors and participate in the events without charge or obligation.

    Can I go to church without becoming a member? Yes. If fact, we hope that our churches will be places

    where folks can feel safe exploring spirituality and faith in a Christian context. Because we value membership so much we hope to offer an opportunity for people to go through their exploration process for as long as

    they need before making any kinds of decisions regarding faith and church.

    So dont be afraid to visit or participate in a local church. Check out the time, get in your car, come as you are and begin exploring.

    Feeling unsafe in Shirley

    As a mother of two young children its nice to know that there are people in our commu-nity who are willing to save our lives without hestition.

    I have known Dono-van Ray for many many years and can say that I absolutely trust my fam-ilys life in his hands.

    I had a dealing with him 10 years back and he does not hesitate to help no matter the situation.

    There are people in this community that when they call 911 they ask for the Shir-ley department to not come, that changed with Donovan in charge.

    In a small community like ours you need to trust whos in charge and that trust comes with time! I really do not feel as safe as I once have.

    If you were fortunate and quick enough to get a ticket to the sec-ond annual Sooke Food CHI Harvest Supper you were treated to a magical evening filled with excellent food, good music, wonderful ambiance and a feel-ing of community con-nectedness, beautifully orchestrated by the cooperative efforts of so many, including local fishermen, farmers and friends.

    It was one of the warmest and most memorable local events ever; a full sensory experience with sun-flowers and the verdant community gardens as a backdrop.

    Congratulations to everyone involved! Thank all of you for giv-ing us yet another rea-son to be so happy with living in Sooke.

    Ferry rates rising

    BC Ferries has the green light to raise fares by up to 12 per cent over three years and passengers should expect less frequent sailings on some major runs.

    Increases in the fare cap of roughly four per cent a year were approved Monday by B.C. Ferry Commis-sioner Gord Macatee.

    The ferries regulator also directed BC Ferries to come up with more than $54 million in sav-ings over four years, including $30 million through service cuts.

    BC Ferries will trim some sailings start-ing Oct. 9, particularly when vessels are run-ning with light pas-senger loads on major routes between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

    Regular odd-hour sail-ings wont be affected, but nearly 100 even-hour sailings are to be scrapped between those terminals.

    New category for entries at the Sooke Fall FairPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

    The following letter was received by Mary Ewing, Eastern Canada coordinator of Quilts of Valour Canada.

    Dear Mary, Today I was presen-

    ted with my own quilt of valour, and was honou-red and very proud in receiving this beautiful piece of artwork that was made by someone who truly cares and admires the sacrifices that our soldiers do on a daily basis.

    I am still serving, I have had a very long and good military career of 26 years, numerous tours of Bosnia, Kosovo, and Afghanistan. I am diagnosed with severe PTSD and suffer from back injuries. Your lovely quilt will be a new found comfort area for me and my soul to help me cope with the many challen-ges that lay before me in the years to come, while battling my horrors and daily pain.

    I cannot thank you enough for what you and

    your group are doing for all the injured soldiers.

    Yours truly Pte. R.G.

    This is just one of many expressions of gratitude received from those who have been given quilts through the Quilt of Valour pro-gram. Each of the stit-ches in the quilt was likely made with a sol-

    dier or member of the armed forces in mind. The quilts are a show how much these men and women are appre-ciated for the often dangerous job they do. Each person who recei-ves a quilt is either in recovery from injury or still dealing with issues such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

    This past fall the Shirley quilters began making quilts for sol-diers and now the orga-nizers of the Sooke Fall Fair want to include these Quilts of Valour at the 2013 Sooke Fall Fair.

    This will give them lots of time to make the quilts and also make folks aware our big 100 year celebra-tion coming up in 2013, says June Wesley,who is organizing this cate-gory for the fair.

    Quilters can enter in two categories and two different sizes of quilts. Adults and seniors can all enter to make eit-her a lap size (50x70), or twin size (72x96). The same sizes apply if the quilt is made by a group.

    These quilts are to show our appreciation, support and encoura-gement to our military who put their lives at risk, said Wesley.

    The QoV category will be sponsored by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 54.

    For more information ,contact June at 250-642-2032.

    The Quilts of Valor Foundation was initially established in the U.S., but it was adopted by Lezley Zwaal of Edmon-ton, Alberta, in 2006.

    Youth parliament seeking membersYouth parliament

    seeks BC residents aged 16-21 for projects to benefit the youth of the province.

    The British Colum-bia Youth Parliament is after 95 fine young men and women to visit Vic-toria this Christmas, debate important ser-vice projects to benefit the youth of the prov-ince, and put those plans in place in 2013.

    From now until mid-October, BCYP is call-ing on community and youth leaders across the province to nomi-nate exceptional young people to take part in this important oppor-tunity.

    Were asking com-munity leaders, elected officials, and others to think about young people whod be great members of this orga-nization and make sure those youth are aware of this opportunity.

    The British Colum-bia Youth Parliament is a non-partisan, non-demoninational service organization. BCYP plans, fundraises for, and puts in place ser-vice projects that help

    improve the lives of young people. These include group com-munity service events, partnerships with com-munity service organi-zations, regional model parliaments, and indi-vidual youth volunteer projects.

    BCYP members spend time at the BC Legislature in Victoria between Boxing Day and New Years Day every year to debate and vote on the orga-nizations proposed activities and issues of local, national, and international impor-tance. All members sit as independents, and are free to vote accord-ing to their conscience on the issues.

    Potential BCYP mem-

    bers will be Between 16 and 21

    years of age; Residents of the

    province for the past year;

    Land donation

    recognized by CRD

    Dr. Joyce Clearihue was hiking with a group from the Victoria Natural History Society in the Charters Creek area on Sunday, Sept. 23.

    It was the first time she saw the plaque recognizing her generous donation of 45.2 hectares to the Sea to Sea Regional Park Reserve.

    She eagerly posed beside the recently installed plaque on the trestle above the Charters River Salmon Interpretive Centre.

    The VNHS group hiked around the Charters River property with Rosemary Jorna of the Juan de Fuca Community Trails Society and had a guided tour in the interpretive centre with Elida Peers.

    The VNHS maintains a rare bird hotline (250) 704-2555 to report rare or interesting sightings of birds within the Greater Victoria region.

  • Abnormally dry weather will persist for the next while so the Coastal Fire Centre is urging the public to continue to be cautious with any forest activity that could start wild-fires, including camp-fires and equipment use.

    The Coastal Fire Cen-tre has responded to 234 wildfires since April 1, 100 of which were caused by lightning and 134 caused by people.

    Current weather pat-terns will extend the extreme and high Fire Danger Ratings on southern Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.

    The fuels in the forest are very dry and warm; breezy days with no precipitation will not lower danger ratings in the foreseeable future.

    The public is reminded that Cat-egory 2 fires and fire-works use are currently prohibited throughout the Coastal Fire Cen-tre, except in the Skee-na-Queen Charlotte, Mount Waddington and

    Central Coast regional districts. Check:

    http://bcwildfire.ca/hprScripts/Wildfire-News/Bans.asp regu-larly for the latest news on burning restrictions. For information on cur-rent fires of note in B.C., go to: www.bcwildfire.ca.

    To report a wildfire or unattended camp-fire, please call *5555 on your cellphone or 1 800 663-5555 toll-free.

    Local Sooke Fire Chief Steven Sorensen said the fire risk is, still extreme. Cur-rent weather pattern

    expected to continue for at least 10 more days. This therefore extends the burning ban.

    Local fire regulations permit outdoor cooking fires, provided the fire is contained in a device or fixture designed for such purpose and the fire is only burning clean dry wood or char-coal;

    Outdoor fires in pits approved by the Fire

    Chief for use in desig-nated campgrounds or tourist parks;

    (d) outdoor fires in pits provided that the following conditions are adhered to:

    (i) the fire is con-tained in a masonry or metal pit not to exceed .60 metres (24 inches) in diameter

    (ii) the fire pit is located a minimum of 6 metres (20 feet) from all property lines and buildings and 3 metres (10 feet) from all grass,

    shrubbery, wood or other combustible material;

    (iii) a garden hose or immediate source of water is readily avail-able at all times the fire is lit; and

    (iv) the fire is fully extinguished by 1:00 am.

    Beginning Oct. 1, daily updates of local burning information can be obtained from the District Hotline at 250-642-1612.

  • The British Colum-bia Safety Authority (BCSA) is calling on homeowners, busi-nesses, building and strata managers in the province, particularly in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, who may have had gas work performed by Eugene Darling of Gas-man Services to con-tact the BCSA.

    The BCSA has

    identified numerous instances of Mr. Dar-ling leaving hazardous conditions after work-ing on gas appliances such as furnaces and hot water heaters. He is currently prohibited from performing any work related to gas appliances or equip-ment that is regulated by the BCSA.

    We are asking the public to immediately

    contact us if you are aware of any work on gas appliances per-formed by Eugene Dar-ling, said Eric Skehor, Provincial Gas Safety Manager with the BCSA. Improper work on gas appliances cre-ates risks such as fire or carbon monoxide poisoning which can be fatal.

    Darlings license was suspended in Decem-

    ber 2011 after issues were cited in work done in Langley, Surrey and Parksville. Despite further enforcement actions, it was dis-covered that he had recently performed work in Saanich, Sooke and Colwood. The BCSA cautioned that other businesses which have no involvement in these events may use Gasman or a similar

    name, and this notice is not a reflection of those businesses.

    Its possible that Mr. Darling has per-formed work in areas other than those where issues have been raised against him, said Ske-hor. And if those jobs were not inspected, then we need to assess if they were done safely.

    If you have any infor-

    mation regarding work performed by Eugene Darling, please email info@safetyauthority.ca or call the BCSA at 1-866-566-7233.

    The BC Safety Author-ity is an independent,

    self-funded organiza-tion, mandated to over-see the safe installation and use of technical systems and equip-ment.

    Sooke Youth Council making plans for the yearSharron HoSooke News Mirror

    The Sooke Youth Council is holding a Planning Day meeting on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Edward Milne commu-nity school from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    The event is designed to gather local youth, from the ages of 13 to 21, to help plan a 12-month calendar out-lining events, goals and plans for the council.

    Anyone in that age range is able to come out to the Planning Day, said Ebony Log-

    ins, Sooke Youth Coun-cil co-ordinator, adding there is no pressure for participants to join the council.

    If they want to have a say in the community, its a perfect opportu-nity to do that, and the members of the youth council can act on those wishes specific from the youth who come, she said.

    The goal of the whole day is to get to know peers in that age group and there will be lots of team building and fun activities throughout the morning and then

    in the afternoon were going to be doing a world cafe style plan-ning session.

    Logins said the world cafe style planning ses-sions will entail five dif-ferent tables, each with a host and topic for dis-cussion.

    Participants will cycle through each of the tables, where they will present their ideas and build on existing ideas left by people who were at the table previously.

    Its essentially build-ing upon ideas as they go around the room,

    Logins said. The topics will be

    discussed on Planning Day, and subjects most relevant to Sookes youth will be selected.

    The Sooke Youth Council was formed in 2008. Some of their latest achievements include an event called Medicine for Maysa, where $3,000 was raised to help Maysa, an infant with cystic fibrosis, and her family.

    They were also involved with the Sooke Rotary Clubs Adopt-a-Highway proj-ect, where a portion

    of Hwy. 14, from Sooke River Bridge to Cooper Cove was adopted.

    Its been four years but I think still our main reason for existence is to really get the word out there that youth are capable of doing really cool things, Log-ins said. That they are excited and willing to make changes in the community and make it better for everyone.

    Youth interested in participating in Plan-ning Day can contact the Sooke Youth Coun-cil at: sookeyouth@gmail.com

    BC KIDS GET RABBIT READY FOR FIRE EMERGENCIES

    October 2nd, 2012 The Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC) along with re departments and primary and pre-school teachers across the country, have introduced a new tool to help kids and families be better prepared in case of re: cute and fuzzy bunny rabbits.

    "Have Two Ways Out" is this years theme for Fire Prevention Week, which runs October 7 13. The theme builds on rabbits instinct to always have at least two exits from their underground homes leading to safety. Fire Chief Stephen Gamble, president of the CAFC, says families who create and practise an escape plan together, with two ways out of every room if possible, have a better chance of escaping during a real re emergency."An escape plan helps families respond more quickly and calmly when faced with a real re situation," Chief Gamble says. "When a smoke alarm sounds, everyone needs to know what to do and where to go. Planning two ways out of each room, ahead of time, greatly increases your chances of getting out without injury." Among the "Have Two Ways Out" activities will be a week of home re escape lessons taught to young children by primary and pre-school teachers, followed by home-work assignments encouraging families to prepare and practise an escape plan. The effort extends through the entire month of October featuring a special web site www.safeathome.ca/twowaysout where families can print out a free home escape plan template. They can also watch for it in the "Have Two Ways Out" homework package which the CAFC designed to help parents, teachers and kids work hand in hand. Families who register the completion of their plan on line are rewarded with a Have Two Ways Out Certi cate and the chance to win over $10,000 in prizes including Kidde Escape Ladders, Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms. Teachers can also register their classrooms for a chance to win Dominos Pizza Parties, glow in dark Kidde Sparky Smoke Alarms, and Sparky the Fire Dog plush toys that speak re safety messages. Carol Heller is a home re safety specialist with Kidde Canada, recognized as the largest smoke and carbon monoxide alarm company in Canadaand a major partner in the CAFCs annual Fire Prevention Week campaign. Heller says two more factors are important for families to consider to avoid re tragedy. If a false alarm has caused you to take the batteries out of your smoke alarm, or remove it from the ceiling, it wont be there when you need it most, she says. So when your kids come home from school excited to create an escape plan, also make sure smoke alarms are installed and working on every storey of your home. Heller adds, "Remember that smoke alarms wear out. Replace them every 10 years whether they are battery operated or hardwired into your homes electrical system. Fire Departments play a major part in the safety campaigns success, building on their established school programs of working hand-in-hand with youngsters and educators. A free home escape plan template and more family re safety tips can be found online at the campaign website www.safeathome.ca/twowaysout.

  • SEAPARC STAR SEAPARC STAR of theof the WEEK WEEKThis week, SEAPARC is happy to introduce you to four year old Reece Traynor. He attends the Montessori Pre-School and says that he loves to learn about the oceans because he likes the creatures that live in them. He is in his rst seasons with the Sooke Soccer Club and can hardly wait to start hockey too. He is currently learning to skate so he can sign up for the SEAPARC Sharks Hockey Program in January. Baseball is his other favourite sport, and he plays it in his backyard with his family. Reece likes camping (especially the marshmallows) and visiting his relatives in Ontario. He was happy to tell us that his Grandparents just arrived from Port Perry, Ontario for a visit. He wants to take them to Beacon Hill Park and the Bug Zoo while they are here on the island. Reece loves to help around his home; he helps with gardening, right from digging and planting, to weeding and harvesting but he says that his favourite part about gardening is eating the vegetables! He likes building things with Lego and his Dad told us that he loves to build things and x stuff with his very own carpentry tools. Reece used to think he would be a Cowboy when he grew up, but he has since decided that he will be a Farmer instead. He says that he has a really good little sister (Alexis) and that he likes to teach her things like sports. Reece was described as being a determined and energetic little guy who has a good sense of humour and always wants to help. We think you are great Reece, thank you for being our SEAPARC Star of the Week.

    Catching up with the Celtic Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

    With the soccer season started up, the Sooke Celtic have three losses and one win under their belt.

    According to Sooke Celtic manager, Steve Scott, the team is currently missing some members of their regular roster to the drawn out summer weather.

    He expects things will pick-up upon the return of their regular players.

    The team is also playing in the Pacific Cup, a tourney featuring teams from the Vancouver Island Soccer League and the Fraser Valley Soccer League.

    The Celtic were the single team from the VISL to make it past round one, and have made it into the semi-finals.

    They will be heading to Vancouver for the semi-finals on Oct. 20.

    Scott said one of the challenges the Celtic face in the tourney is playing against unfamiliar teams.

    We dont know really anything about those teams, he said, adding the team is also at the bot-tom of the draw meaning the Celtic have to travel to Vancouver for every game.

    So, thats bit of a challenge, too, he said. The Celtics next league game will be on Oct.

    13 at Finlayson on Topaz Park against the Bays United Liquor Plus at 8 p.m.

    We dont really know anything about those teams.
