Land Conservancy to pay tax debt Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

It appears that the unpaid taxes for three properties owned by The Land Con-servancy will be paid. The Land Conservancy has out-standing tax bills payable to the District of Sooke in the amount of $58,287.06, as of July 31, 2012.

Grant allows for museum upgrades

Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

The Sooke Region Museum recently received a grant from the federal government to fund part of a large improvement project.

The Museums Assis-tance Program of the Federal Department of Canadian Heritage approved a grant for about $19,000 to fund the reorganization of storage areas.

“We’ve got a lot of organization do, we’ve had stuff stored for a long time... and we’re getting quite crowded,” said Lee Boyco, Sooke Region Museum execu-tive director.

“We need to sort of add new storage and reorganize some of the existing storage so that it looks after the arti-facts better.”

The museum, which has been in operation since 1977, has amassed a variety of different historical items, some of which has not been moved since the early 90s.

“We’re hoping to get a little bit of specialty shelving,” Boyco said. “That grant will defi-nitely help with that side of stuff.”

Currently items are stored along out-dated shelving. Large items are currently stacked on top of one another, while smaller items are cluttered together in spaces without draw-ers.

Boyco said some of the work that will be done include building structures to increase surface area to better house large items, and the implementation of compartments for smaller items.

Items will also be moved to their appro-priate places to ensure they’re properly cata-logued, and stored in areas favourable to their preservation.

Work on the muse-um’s storage areas are expected to begin and be completed this fall, which will require addi-tional part-time work-ers.

“Once a week for 14 to 16 weeks, we’ll have a larger group of eight or 10 people who will work with the project leaders to go through the material and help identify it. Then even-tually move the materi-als as new shelving gets in.”

The improvement of storage facilities will

coincide with a larger project, funded by about $30,000 of inter-nal funds made avail-able through a change in the museum’s tax

levy. The second portion

of the project includes: upgrade of collections management systems, extensive inventory

work, new computer software, and making a significant portion of the museum’s collec-tion available online.

The museum is also

looking to purchase de-humidification equip-ment and pest treat-ment facility to better preserve and protect artifacts.

Video stores vs. Disney Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

Sooke Video to Go is one of about 900 inde-pendent video stores across Canada that have been prohibited from renting out new Disney movies within the first 28 days of release.

Bryan Davis, co-owner of Video to Go, has joined the petition, Boycott Disney, to cor-ral the public to boy-cott the entertainment powerhouse in support of independent video stores.

“We’re not asking people to boycott everything Disney. I’m not asking people to stop going to Disney-land or Disney World. I’m not saying don’t buy other Disney prod-ucts,” Davis said.

“What we are asking is: Don’t support Dis-ney’s bid to try to get rid of us by purchasing these titles that they’re withholding from us.”

According to Davis, Disney has not been communicating with Canada’s independent video stores, leaving the family businesses to assume Disney is locking them out to try to sell more DVDs.

The first title to be effected was box office flop, John Carter.

In order to get around the 28-day hold-out, Davis has allowed customers to “borrow” copies, purchased through a retailer, for free with the rental of another new release.

“My attitude is if they’re trying to get rid

of my business, so they can sell more DVDs, the only way I can really combat that is to give the DVD away to people with the promise that they’re not going to buy the DVD,” he said.

“I don’t want to make a profit on that title. It’s our job to take the moral high ground, and we’re trying to as best we can to meet the entertainment needs of the community at the lowest cost to our-selves.”

Davis said so far,

the embargo has not effected his business, as the shop has a, “pretty strong and loyal clientele.”

“I think a good major-ity of our customers would wait the 28 days and life would go on fairly much as usual.”

Video to Go opened its doors in Sooke in 1982, which Davis and his wife Susie have owned since 2008.

Since then, they have increased titles from 6,000 to 17,000.

Despite popular

belief, Davis said the video rental business is a vital part of the com-munity -- particularly the rural community.

“A lot of areas in Can-ada still don’t have high speed internet and they don’t have cable. So if you don’t have a video store then those areas just go without.”

Local camp needs compost partner

Brittany LeeSooke News Mirror

A local Scout camp needs help compost-ing food left over from summer campers.

Camp Barnard, located on Young Lake Road in Sooke, regu-larly gets large cycles of scouts coming in and out of the camp, and with that comes large amounts of recycling and compost.

“Sometimes we get big groups of people and we get leftover food products,” Willy Burrows, camp ranger, said.

The problem is the Scouts have nowhere to compost their food scraps.

“Instead of food scraps going in the dumpster, we’d like to have it go somewhere,” he said, noting a pig farm as an ideal place.

Garbage at the camp varies from large loads to nothing at all in some weeks, Burrows said.

The camp is usu-ally busiest in May, but there will also be a large group of scouts visiting Aug. 19 to 25.

The Scouts are hop-ing that a local farmer might be interested in regularly collecting the compost for their own use.

To inquire about compost pick-ups, call Willy at 250-642-5924.

This is advance notice about the annual Subaru Sooke Triathlon which will take place in Otter Point, Shirley, Jor-dan River and Sooke on Sunday, Aug. 12.

Last year the course was changed to extend the bicycle race past Jordan River.

This necessitated the closure of High-way 14 between Gor-don’s Beach and a point approximately 15 kilometres west of Jordan River result-ing in considerable inconvenience for local businesses, campers, residents and others. Changes have been made to the timing of the highway closure for the 2012 event which will hopefully minimize delays.

Here is most infor-mation supplied to the OPSRRA newsletter by the race organizers.

Dear Resident or Stakeholder:

This is an additional reminder that there will be a road closure on Aug. 12 that could affect your residents or guests.

The roads are closed in order to accommo-date the safety of the participants in the Sub-aru Sooke International Triathlon and filming of the event for a televi-sion production that will air nationally on TSN.

We are asking for your co-operation with

planning your travel that day and informing your guests to plan and abide by the road clo-sures listed below.

Despite the closures, we have been work-ing with CRD Regional Director Mike Hicks to find some periods of time during the closures where some travel will be allowed. We are also working to see if we can reduce the time of the closure on the eastbound lane from 12 p.m. to 11:30 a.m. (keep in mind the west-bound lane is fully open at 10:30 a.m.). We will be back to you shortly with these plans.

Please be informed that there could be long delays with cyclists and film crews on the roads. There may be places along the route where traffic is stopped or delayed for long peri-ods of time so please try to avoid travel in these periods and ask your guests to give themselves extra time to travel.

We appreciated your patience, cooperation and support. We know that this can be incon-venience to you.

The 60-minute national television pro-gram will be seen by millions and will be focused on the beauty of the area and activi-ties available.

It should provide a very large benefit to the tourism industry in the

area for years to come. Many local residents are also taking part and we know they appre-ciate your support as well.

The following road closures will take place on Aug. 12.

1. Otter Point Road from Grant Road to Rhodonite Drive: 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

2. Otter Point Road (westbound lane) from Young Lake Road to West Coast

Road (westerly inter-section) + Young Lake Road: 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. * Local residents use Kemp Lake Road for access.

3. West Coast Road (westbound lane) from Otter Point Road (west-erly intersection) to approximately 15 km west of Jordan River: 7 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

4. West Coast Road (eastbound lane) from approximately 15 km west of Jordan River to Otter Point Road (west-erly intersection): 7 a.m. - 12 p.m.

5. Otter Point Road (eastbound lane) from

West Coast Road (west-erly intersection) to Rhodonite Drive: 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. * Local resi-dents use Kemp Lake Road for access

· All side streets within the closure areas will be closed. Expect delays and plan ahead.

· Please obey all sig-nage and follow direc-tions from traffic con-trol personnel.

· Provisions have been made for access of all emergency vehi-cles.

For the very latest please see www.tri-series.ca

For further informa-tion about the closure, contact the race office at 250-220-2259

What does it mean to you to have a gentleness of spirit? Christians believe it involves a commitment to treating everyone as God’s masterpiece. When you do that you will see God everywhere because God is everywhere. And, it is then that we realize we are giving our life back to God as a gift, because God knows everything from our innermost thoughts to our outermost actions.

To have a gentleness of spirit means we commit to giving God a world of beauty and goodness, by loving others and caring for the earth. With others we pause prior to that hurtful remark we were about to utter. We take the time to listen to their story. We strive to see the other in their best light. We look for their inner goodness, rather that viewing them through our ego and our defensiveness.

Today, starting right now, we could begin our walk down the path of gentleness just by changing our language. Just start using the language of gratitude, care and welcoming. Even when we nd ourselves in a conversation of con ict we can choose to speak quiet words and use “I” statements. We can start to ask questions rather than demanding answers or even making accusations.

Check and live by your spiritual af rmations – and your self-talk, as it shapes your realities.

Listen! Listen to your own words and the too quick responses...are they hopeful or hopeless comments?

Remember St. Paul, “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pleasing…think about these things!” Or, to Thich Nhat Hnah, “If we are peaceful, if we are happy, we can blossom like a ower, and everyone in our family, our entire society, will bene t from our peace.” God’s peace be with you.

Western Forest Products to turn over land to CRDThe Capital Regional District to receive 250 hectares of land adjacent to the Sooke Potholes on Aug. 15

Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

Western Forest Prod-ucts will be handing over 250 hectares of land adjacent from the Sooke Potholes to the Capital Regional Dis-trict on Aug. 15.

The land is valued at $1.3 million, and will remain part of the Sea to Sea Regional Park Reserve, according to Lloyd Rushton, CRD general manager for parks and community services.

The transfer is phase three of an agreement the CRD made with WFP in 2010 to transfer 2,350 hectares of park

and watershed lands for $18.8 million. The amount was to be paid over three year instal-ments.

The lands include: 187 hectares in Jor-dan River, 1,323 in the Sooke Potholes / Sea to Sea -- both for regional parks -- and 840 hect-ares in Weeks Lake for integrated water ser-vices.

The final transfer of land, 60.5 hectares in Jordan River, is expected to be done in December 2012, follow-ing clean up of environ-mental contamination.

Rushton said envi-ronmental monitoring deemed further work

needed to be done in order to clear the province’s Certificate of Compliance for the transfer.

“There’s still some work Western Forest Products has to do,” he said.

Although the CRD recognized some of the properties purchased in Jordan River did not have park value, they were required to buy all parcels -- resulting in surplus lands.

The CRD held a pub-lic consultation in Sooke on Feb. 22 regarding the park boundary in Jordan River.

“We had a public con-sultation already earlier

this year... and there will be a staff report going to the Regional Parks Committee and Board that will identify the proposed bound-ary,” Rushton said.

“What we’re saying at this point in time is that those decisions have to be made yet, but the CRD board will be considering public and First Nation input.”

He said money from the sale of surplus lands in Jordan River will be reinvested into the Regional Park Land Acquisition Fund.

VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberal government is taking its new hard-line approach to federal environmental hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in September.

Environment Minister Terry Lake has filed the B.C. government’s notice to cross-examine Enbridge, one of the world’s biggest pipeline operators. Lake outlined the “tough questions” B.C. representatives will ask about spill response capacity on land and sea, tanker escort tugboats, pipe wall thickness, and Enbridge’s sluggish response to a pipeline rupture in Michigan.

That’s all fine, and to be expected after Premier Christy Clark’s high-profile confrontation with Alberta Premier Alison Redford going into the recent premiers’ meeting in Halifax.

Clark’s demands for “world-leading” safety and spill response, as well as meeting the constitutional obligation to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along the route, are mostly a statement of the obvious. Her call for a “fair share” of proceeds from exported oil to reflect B.C.’s risk has been assaulted from all sides.

Pipeline opponents seized on Clark’s suggestion that a major oil spill might be tolerable if there was enough money in it for B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix picked up the theme as he conducted his own

belated tour of the proposed route to reiterate his opposition.

There had been earlier hints from Alberta that B.C. might need further rewards for the risk. But when Clark

made the “fair share” demand public, Redford was moved to channel Margaret Thatcher, declaring: “The Premier of Alberta is not going to blink on royalties.” The lady’s not for blinking, but neither is B.C.’s Iron Snowbird, as Preston Manning dubbed Clark

this spring.All this political

theatre doesn’t amount to much. I’ll stand by my January

prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed, mainly due to the tangled state of aboriginal claims. Wealthy U.S. foundations that view the B.C. North Coast as their 500-year eco-experiment will be happy to help fund a decade of legal challenges, while continuing the media-spinning and protest support they are doing now.

Even if some way can be found to levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the Trans-Mountain pipeline that has been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more than 60 years.

The competing expansion proposal by Trans-Mountain’s current owner, Kinder Morgan, shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new

pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is acceptable?

Protesters have an easy target in Kinder Morgan. With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy. Tankers have made that trip safely nearly 100 years, but the congested modern shipping lane offers more threat of collision, and clearing Burrard Inlet for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade.

An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds.

Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming.

B.C. Views

Remember to be bear smart

OUR VIEW

Living in Sooke is synonymous with living in out in the wilderness. And one thing residents should always keep in mind is that we share our surroundings with wild animals.

Bear encounters and, albeit rare, cougar sightings are some of the joys of living in a rural area. But with that privilege comes responsibility.

The last thing anyone wants is to have a wild animal euthanized or destroyed due to human carelessness or apathy.

According to the Get Bear Smart Society website, 792 black bears and 46 grizzlies are shot by conservation officers each year in B.C. because they are deemed “problem” bears.

Although a majority of people are cognizant of their wild neighbours, here are a

few things to keep in mind. Take out your garbage bins on the morning of

collection day, not the night before. Bears are scavengers, so if you leave your

garbage out, there is a likelihood a bear may snoop through it for an easy meal.

And once a bear becomes habituated to scouring through garbage, it becomes a risk to public safety.

Keep attractants out of your yard: glean fruit trees regularly, keep pet food indoors, and keep bird feeders sugar-free.

Although they are opportunistic eaters, bears are only rummaging through our trash because humans have encroached too far into their habitat.

To motivate yourself to be bear smart, remember the saying, ‘A fed bear is a dead bear.’

Remember: A fed bear is a dead bear

Noise or summer fun?

I really do under-stand peace and quiet... I am up at 4 a.m. all week for work and I too love quiet, but there is a limit as well.

I feel that people need to be aware and have some tolerence to normal summer fun and back yard use. We all have the right to enjoy our home/yards with-out being nagged. Sum-mer means barbecues, friends, horseshoes, summer games and music. I am appalled at those who have lit-tle tolerence for people who have fun and enjoy normal living.

My husband and I are not “really young” but we are also not by any means “old.” This sum-mer we have had one barbecue and perhaps two afternoon visits. It is sad when a person pays taxes and works extremely hard for their own well cared for property.

People — life is short, enjoy it, and if you can’t enjoy it then please let others enjoy. I agree that there is a limit to noise but seriously, an iPod and a few friends on a Saturday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. does not justify a noise violation, nor does a summer bar-becue with games.

Even the children in this neighbourhood have a hard time to play

in our block without noise complaints. Per-haps a seniors-only village or subdivision would be a great choice for those who have no tolerance? Seriously folks, life is too short. Enjoy your summers and friends for all too soon it will be gone.

To Canada’s firefighters

When you dial 911 to get help in an emer-gency, you fully expect a quick response.

In the vast majority of cases – from traf-fic accidents to heart attacks, from hazard-ous spills to burning buildings – the first to the rescue will be fire-fighters. People’s lives depend on them and they put their lives at risk for the rest of us everyday.

For several years, Canada’s firefighters have been asking three simple things from the Government of Canada. They deserve a decent response. That’s why I’ve introduced Pri-vate Member’s Motion M-388 in the House of Commons. It comes up for debate and a vote this fall.

On average, 18 fire-fighters die in the line of duty every year. But there is nothing in place to help provide for their families if they

are killed or become permanently disabled while on the job keep-ing Canadians safe. So Motion M-388 proposes a one-time $300,000 benefit for firefighters (and for other “public safety officers”) who perish or become dis-abled.

In their work as “first responders” during public health emer-gencies, like influenza pandemics, firefighters will often come into contact with infected individuals. Like doc-tors, nurses and other front-line health work-ers, they need priority access to vaccines and other medications to keep them as safe as possible in the line of duty. Federal guidelines don’t currently provide for this. Motion M-388 corrects that defect.

Finally, while most people get out of burn-ing buildings as fast as possible, a firefighter’s job can be the exact opposite. To save lives, they sometimes need to run right into the teeth of a blaze. Cer-tain building materials and techniques can result in fires burning faster and hotter, thus endangering firefight-ers’ lives, especially during search-and-rescue operations. Motion M-388 calls for firefighter safety to become an objective of the National Building Code.

These are three mod-est proposals. They respond to thoughtful, rational requests com-

ing from Canadian fire-fighters. Please encour-age your Member of Parliament to support Motion M-388 – to help look after the coura-geous firefighters who look after all of us in times of emergency.

Yours sincerely,Hon. Ralph

Goodale, PC, MPDeputy Leader, Lib-

eral Party of Canada

Triathlon traffic woes

Here we go again with road closures in Shirley and elsewhere in the JDFEA for the car company sponsored triathlon. Shirley is a totally inappropriate venue of such an event even with alternating lane closures.

I n a p p r o p r i a t e because it is dangerous to close the only road in the district - last year the fire department had to respond to an emer-gency by driving on the highway crowded with bike racers.

I n a p p r o p r i a t e because it is simply wrong to “land lock in” the local taxpaying resi-dents preventing them from using the only available public high-way.

I n a p p r o p r i a t e because it causes incon-venience to and loss of customers for our local businesses which have a hard enough time sur-viving these days.

No amount of com-pensation can ade-quately address the inappropriateness of holding this event here in Shirley; especially not a token gift such as the defibrillator for the fire department that is apparently being used as a carrot this year; that something that our local Fire Protec-tion Society could pur-chase a dozen times over without demand-ing the closure of our only public road.

When will the orga-nizers, sponsors and volunteers of this event realize that the public assets of our district including the highway, scenery and West Coast atmosphere should not be for sale for the pri-vate commercial ben-efit of a car company sponsored triathlon.

Maybe they could instead start in Sooke; go east bound and close Sooke Road all the way to Colwood and finish the race at the car com-pany sales lot. But they would probably object to that because it is dan-gerous; inconvenient; uses the only public road for a private event and would cause a loss to local businesses; which is precisely why most Shirley residents say the triathlon is not wanted here.

iWe asked: How does your dog handle the summer heat?

She gets regular haircuts... Lots of water, lots of fresh air, lots of love. She just wants to be wherever we are.

AbbyEight months old

Both of them swim and lay in the shade. They go from one dog bed to the other.

StormThree years old

We shower him off and he goes up to the his belly in swimming.

MacFive -and-a-half years old

He goes (to Whiffin Spit) and he stays in the shade. But being in Sooke, we don’t get the summer heat that they have in Victoria.

ball, softball, even base-ball, you will enjoy sit-ting on a lawn chair and have fun watching the great sportsmanship and, really, some great plays that these guys and girls come up with.

In particular, I’m cit-ing the 54-50’s slow pitch team. I had the pleasure of watching a game on Aug. 1 that was outstand-ing. Our team lost by one run, you had to be there to believe it.

I would like to encour-age those who enjoy good sportsmanship and slow pitch to come out to Stan Jones Park across from the arena down in the valley and see for yourself.

A trip through the Sooke News Mirror time machine:

Aug. 9, 1989Major parks study

under way.The Sooke Parks and

Recreation Commission has hired a Victoria firm to develop a mas-ter plan for park devel-opment in the Sooke Electoral area at a cost of $15,750.

The study, which will be broken down into three phases -- data analyses, system anal-yses and plan prepa-ration and review -- is scheduled for comple-tion in May, 1990.

Steve Marsh, chair-man of the Sooke Parks and Recreation Com-mission, said there will be a lot of public par-ticipation in the prepa-ration of the plan.

“We want to find out what the public wants in the way of parks for our community and learn about areas that they think we should be looking into,” he said.

He said the Sooke Parks and Recreation Commission currently has more than two dozen pieces of parks

property which it administers.

In previous years, the primary role of the commission, he added, had been administering the area.

“But we now have a changing man-date because of the demands for parks development.”

Aug. 6, 1997T’Sou-ke Nation

welcomes aboriginal paddlers en route to Games

The deep throbbing sound of the drums faded quietly away.

T’Sou-ke Chief Jim Cooper stood on the end of the dock, arms raised in welcome.

“We are the T’Sou-ke Nation. If you come in peace, we welcome you here to feast with us. Is

there a chief amongst you who will speak for you,” he asked a canoe full of natives approach-ing the dock.

“Yes. I am chief. We come here in peace and we ask to come ashore,” a loud voice boomed back.

And so the canoe came forward and the natives disembarked to a welcoming crowd. Four more canoes full of travel weary natives in turn were asked if they came in peace and were welcomed ashore.

Standing back from the crowd was Fred Peters, the man who had carved the canoe that T’Sou-ke paddlers had taken to meet the contingent.

Sooke’s original ‘Mom’While the café built

by Howard Lewis in1963 across from the Sooke Community Hallwas first called ‘Joker’s Grill’ it has enjoyed a long history as ‘Mom’s Café.’ A landmark intown today - but when the place was built, thiswidespread community boasted perhaps a total of 4,000 residents.

The new eatery at thecorner of Sheilds and Eustace meant there were now two down-town diners, as therestaurant at the cor-ner of Sooke Road andTownsend had been established at the endof World War II.

Howard Lewis’ wifeJean is seen here in 1949 with baby Lenore,an All Sooke Day baby show winner. When Lenore Lewis entered her teens, she, like most teenagers, looked for a place to hang out, and was excited that her parents were build-ing a restaurant. Also like many teenagedgirls, Lenore was crazy about horses and espe-cially her horse called ‘Joker.’

Was it any wonder then, that the café was first given the name Joker’s Grill? Jean Lewis, the original mom’s cook, had some restaurant background, which included work-ing for Madame Marie Lavertu at Sooke Har-bour House. One of the specialties that built the restaurant’s reputa-tion was pan-fried oys-ters. Another has been the legendary mile-high pies. Lenore, now mar-ried to Eric Blight and a resident of Vancouver,

remembers that meals were sold at an all-in-clusive price for dinner, dessert and coffee, and that her mom went tospecial trouble for kid-dies, making ‘baby plat-ters.’

The restaurant has changed hands many times since then. Among succeeding owners were Karl Gage, the Broomfields and of

course, Bill and Rikey Wiley, who as Mom’s Café proprietors in more recent decades, became a fixture inthemselves.

Since the propri-etorship of Tom and Elaine Dee, renovations have taken place once more, but the place still serves as a hangout. Perhaps not so much for teenagers anymore,

but as a gathering place to catch up on the news over coffee and for fish-ermen to swap stories, as it continues to be a hub of the community. There’s always been a ‘mom’ to provide that special care.

SSES long weekend salmon derby a success

Sharron Ho photos

(Clockwise from top left) Derby participants filled up the picnic tables at the Sooke Flats on Aug. 5 for the announcement of prizes and steak dinner. Mel Hull guts and cleans a salmon brought in for entry -- a common practice for fishing tournaments. All salmon are weighed in with innards still in place, which can make a difference of about five to six pounds for a large catch. A group of volunteers man the official weigh-in station, across the street from Evergreen Centre. Robert Gamache, Sooke Salmon Enhancement vice-president, prepares burgers with homemade barbecue sauce for hungry and hardworking volunteers.The top hefty salmon catches for Aug. 4 were on display at the weigh-in station. One caught by top derby winner Zack Homer, at nearly 44 pounds, and another by Jesse Legg weighing almost 26 pounds. Troy Smith, 17, holds up his 29.5-pound hatchery Chinook caught on Aug. 4.

Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

The ninth annual Sooke Salmon Enhance-ment Derby ran from Aug. 4 to 5, and sold about 250 of 300 avail-able tickets.

”We’ve had better,” said Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society president, Mel Hull of ticket sales. “It defi-nitely makes the derby a success, but we have sold out once or twice before.”

The Chinook derby reels in a majority of the non-profit’s operat-ing funds for the year.

He said the slight drop in entrants could be for a variety of rea-sons, citing the poor economy and increas-ing costs of owning a fishing boat and the rec-reational sport itself.

During derby hours, entrants trickled in and out of the weigh-in sta-tion, which officially closed on Aug. 5 at 1 p.m.

Participants then headed down to the Sooke Flats for the announcement of derby prizes and steak dinner, catered by the Sooke Lions.

The top three Chi-nook catches this year were:

Zack Homer with a 43.90-pound fish for the top cash prize of $5,000.

Dave Purnell with a 34.20-pound catch for $2,500.

Jody Billings, with a

32.25-pound salmon for a half day charter with No Limit Charters.

Boundaries for the derby were from the Sheringham Pt. Light-house to Race Rocks in Victoria.

The Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society currently operates the Jack Brooks Hatchery -- named after the soci-ety’s founder -- at Rocky Creek, with an objective to sustain local salmon populations.

that T’Sou-ke pad-dlers had taken to meet the contingent.

Yes, he nodded, this was a very proud moment for him.

“I carved that canoe for the T’Sou-ke band. I came down here five years ago to do some carving for them, and I’m still here,” said the former Nitinat resident.

Aug. 6, 2003Lund lobbied to join

boundary study com-mittee by members

Three members of the Boundary Restruc-ture Study Commit-tee (BRSC) have made overtures to Juan de Fuca’s regional director, asking the estranged politician to rejoin the party.

On July 28, BRSC members Arnie Camp-bell, Bruce Lemire-El-more (both from Otter Point) and Sue Smee (Shirley) had a two-hour meeting with Erik Lund. They wanted to hear his concerns and try to convince him to attend the planned Sept. 18 committee meeting.

The committee is investigating whether some or all of East Sooke, Otter Point, Shirley and Jordan River should amalgam-ate with the District of Sooke.

“We tried to encour-age him to be more co-operative,” Campbell said.

Lemire-Elmore said he and his fellow rural BRSC members wanted to get a clear idea of why Lund has not par-ticipated in the commit-tee since being elected regional director last

November. “They told me where

they were coming from. I mostly just listened,” Lund said.

He said he can’t control the study, he doesn’t know where it’s heading and he doesn’t think it’s in the public interest.

Aug. 4, 2010 Seniors to be dis-

placedWord has raced

through the 150 or so clients of the Sooke Seniors’ Drop-in Centre, and the word is unset-tling.

The facility on the south side of Sooke Road, just east of Otter Point Road may only have several months left in the location is has occupied for the past half-decade.

Centre president Carol Pinalski is confi-dent she speaks for cli-ents and about a dozen volunteers when she expresses worry and uncertainty about the group’s future. She’s keen on letting the com-munity know of the sit-uation so if anyone has constructive ideas they can share them.

The building has been sold to a dental/medical concern and Pinalski says the new owners have indicated a desire to occupy office space in the building as early as Aug. 15.

The spokesperson added that all commu-nication with the new landlords had, as of last Saturday, been verbal, and that November was mentioned as a time by which the seniors would likely need to vacate.

Things to do in the summer in the Sooke areaPirjo Raits Sooke News Mirror

There is still another month until school starts and there is plenty to do to keep yourself and your chil-dren occupied.

You can always take a hike along the many trails, long and short, in the area. There is the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail, a wilderness hik-ing trail with levels of difficulty, is 47-kilome-tres long and skirts the Pacific coastline.

East Sooke Regional Park has 50 kilometres of trails along the wind-swept coast, over dry hilltops and through dark rainforest to shel-tered coves. East Sooke Regional Park is over 1,433.94 hectares in size. Pocket beaches, rocky bays and tidal pools are there for exploring or scuba div-ing. Check the Capital Regional District web-site for more details on entrance points and any regulations. www.crd.bc.caparks/east-

sooke.While you are in East

Sooke, visit Ragley and Glenairley Farms for fresh seasonal produce and fresh baked goods,

Scattered throughout Sooke are trails leading into the Sooke hills and the many lakes acces-sible by non-motorized methods. Information on these can be found at the Tourist Information Centre located at the Sooke Region Museum on Phillips Road.

SEAPARC Leisure Complex has a number of activities aimed at the kids and information on day programs can be found at the complex, by calling 250-642-8000 or online at www.crd.bc.ca./seaparc.

Beachcombing is a great way to enjoy the beaches in the area. Along Highway 14 there are a number of provin-cial campgrounds and

public beaches. French Beach offers year-round vehicle acces-sible camping and hik-ing trails, Juan de Fuca Provincial Park is for those who may wish to hike and camp. Som-brio, Mystic, Botanical and China beaches are all within a short drive from Sooke. Each beach has its own particular features.

Drive to Port Renfrew and take a tour to Ava-tar Grove, an ancient forest with incredible gnarly trees. You can also enjoy beach walk-ing, fishing and playing in the surf in this small village at the edge of the rainforest.

Take a stroll along Whiffin Spit.

The Sooke Potholes are a favourite place to spend an day just play-ing in the water. There is camping available and it is a access point to the Galloping Goose Regional Trail which stretches from Sidney to Sooke. Cycle, horse-back ride or hike this in segments or the entire length.

Whalewatching, fish-

ing charters, kitesurfing, kayaking, sailboarding, and mountain biking are all available in the area. Take advantage of the accommodations at the numerous B&Bs, the hotel and resorts in Sooke and area.

Go birdwatching at Muir Creek or the estuary on the Sooke River. Check out the old growth trees at Muir Creek and Harris Creek.

For those who like to find treasures and col-lectibles, there are a number of second hand

stores located in the town core. It is, after all, all about the hunt.

Practice your swing at the challenging little par-three golf course in Sooke on Throup Road and it is a hour or so well spent.

Sooke has a num-ber of activities listed for August and these include the Subaru Sooke International Triathlon on Aug. 12, Stinking Fish Studio Tour ongoing until Aug. 12, Art in the Park at Ed Macgregor Park in Sooke on Aug. 18-19.

A beer garden and salmon barbecue are all a part of the fun. It is the 75th anniversary of the Shirley Community Hall and the 25th anni-versary of the Shirley Volunteer Fire Depart-ment.

You may want to try surfing at Jordan River

when the tides are right.

Drive the Pacific Marine Circle Route for a 225 kilometre trip from Port Renfrew to Lake Cowichan, Duncan and Victoria to Sooke.

Niki Hodgkinson was 16 when she shaved her head for the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock.

Eleven years later she’s riding in the Tour de Rock as a rookie officer with Saanich police. The annual fundraiser she started at Oak Bay high school has been ongoing ever since.

“I’ve wanted to get involved since then, and wanted to be (a cop), I just didn’t think I’d be able to ride on the Tour so soon,” Hodgkinson said.

The 27-year-old is at one end of the spectrum, while fellow Saanich officer Jana Sawyer is at the other end.

Sawyer has worn a badge for 28 years, starting with nine years in the RCMP. The past 19 years she’s been with Saanich, making her one of the longest serving women there.

“I’d always wanted to ride the Tour de Rock, but with three teenage boys and a husband with (Victoria Police Department), I needed the support from home, and now I’ve got it,” Sawyer said.

Cancer has taken a personal toll on her family. “Lung cancer took my mother-in-law eight years ago and my own mom six years ago when it spread to her brain.”

Rookie or veteran, both police officers have learned a lot about bicycling, and a lot about what makes the Tour de Rock such a demanding but rewarding campaign.

“As far as cycling, you couldn’t jump into it with this type of training intensity without such a big goal,” Sawyer said.

While cycling at this level is new for

Hodgkinson, she brings experience to the fundraising component.

Oak Bay High can be relied on as one of the highest contributors from the Greater Victoria community, as well as Reynolds secondary.

“Reynolds (principal) Alana Charlton was at Oak Bay when I was a student and helped me get the campaign started,” Hodgkinson said.

Biking too, was Hodgkinson’s initiative. Seniority usually dictates which Saanich Police officers will ride on the Tour de Rock, but the rookie was ready.

“Last year when I got hired the first thing I bought was a (road) bike. But I don’t think anyone’s done Tour de Rock in their first year here. I got lucky.”

Lucky is something Sawyer hasn’t been. Twice she’s taken a spill, the first a

dangerous tumble over the handlebars and onto the pavement down Willis Point Road. It kept her away from training for 10 days. Soon after she returned, Sawyer twisted her ankle trying to detach her cleat from the pedal during a speedy descent near Observatory Hill.

Sprained ankle and all, Sawyer toughed it up the team’s ascent of Mount Washington last week, their most exhausting day of training by far.

“Once you do (Mt. Washington), you know you can handle any day on the Tour,” Sawyer said. “It’s a confidence builder.”

SOOKE NEWS2010 WINNER

M I R R O R

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

The 25th Sooke Fine Arts Show opened on Thursday night with purchasers waiting in line to get into the show and see the latest

works from the 275 artists who submitted entries.The adjudicators chose 375 pieces from the 551 art-

ists who responded to the call for entries to the juried art show and sale.

The 10-day show was once again staged in the SEA-PARC Leisure Complex where a group of talented and hard working volunteers transformed the cavernous space into an amazing gallery.

“We had a lovely weekend and a lot of people,” said Sally Manning, show coordinator. “It is a colourful and happy show.”

Many Sooke artists stood out as the winners in the 25th Anniversary Artists Awards. They included Pat-rick Irwin for his acrylic and oil two-dimensional paint-ing “Port Alberni,” Best Two-Dimensional work.

The Best Three-Dimensional work award was awarded to Jan Johnson for his “Minotaur Overseeing Intake,” while Debbie Clarkson took the award for the Best Photography for her “La Habana Elegante #3.” Dana Sitar’s “When I Do Not Follow the Rules” took the award for Best Fibre. Honourable mentions were given to Chuck Minten for his “Circle of Friends” wood table and Anne Boquist’s “YoYoTokTik” gourd and found object piece.

Other winners include Heather Hamilton’s “Internal Reflections” pendant (Best Jewellery); Jo Ludwig’s “No Title” glass piece (Best Glass); Metchosin’s Judi Dyelle won Best Ceramic for her “White Series #1”; and Jeff Molloy’ for his mixed media piece “A Man of the Cloth.

Other honourable mentions went to Debbie Jansen for her fused glass, “Untitled”, Eliza Heminway’s fibre wall piece, “The Haberdasher’s Garden” and Leonard Butt’s “Uchi” raku sculpture.

The adjudicators each chose a work for Juror’s Choice. Richard White gave full marks to Nicolas Van-dergugten’s lino block print “Bridgework #3”; Grant Leier (substituting for Carol Sabiston) awarded Dee de Wit’s “Still Life with Mango” his kudos; and juror Nixie Barton chose Johannes Landman’s oil painting “Benchwarmer.”

Manning said the attendance was keeping in line with past years as were the sales.

25 Years of incredible art

Pirjo Raits photo

Bonnie Jones takes a close look at Michael MacLean’s “Ambassador”

The Sooke FolkMusic Society normally cur-

tails it’s activities for the summer, but thisSaturday, July 30, we are delighted to bringback Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart for a spe-cial summer concert at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, as part of their “Driver ‘til she drops”tour; a reference to their Chevy Suburban,which now has some 465,000 miles on theodometer

Stacey Earle andMark Stuart met for the first time 1991 ata songwriters night in Nashville TN. Theyknew that night it was one of them things thatare just meant to be. They were married in 1992.

It would be quite a balancing act at that time raising a family and trying to make a living along with all theother stuff that came with getting by, “but wemanaged,” Stacey said as she looked back ather first encounter with the world of touring.

Stacey Earle’s first show was on an arena stage in Sydney, play-ing rhythm guitar in her brother’s band, Steve Earle & the Dukes.

She spent about a year and a half on tour with her brother, and then returned to Nash-ville to start a career of her own as a country/folk singer/songwriter.

“I was 30-years-old and asking/seeking a recording deal in Nash-ville.At that age it was like asking God to turn back the world clock.”

Mark Stuart went to the finest of music schools, he started his schooling listening and admiring his uncle’s guitar playing and his dad’s fiddling. By age 15 he would find himself

playing in the school ofhonky tonks and beer joints in and around Nashville in his dad’s band.

Mark was off the road when he met Sta-cey and that very night he would play the firstnote of her music never leaving her side. Mark

still somehow foundthe time to work on his own music record-ing his solo record and touring.

Mark, as well, spent some time in the Dukes in the 1990s. Like Earle, he recalls it as a time ofglamour: appearing on the Tonight Show with

Jay Leno, and MTV. “I had someone tun-

ing my guitar, strappingon my guitar,” he said. “Now we carry our stuff three flights up in the Red Roof Inn.”

Over the years Sta-cey and Mark havelearned so much from each other. Their songs are the diaries of their life — good times andbad, thereby complet-ing the love they have.Together they share the full load of gettingby day-by-day.

They’ve gone onto release their duo albums, Never GonnaLet You Go in 2003 and S&M CommunionBread in 2005, and their Gearle Records 2008release Love from Sta-cey and Mark which is available at thehir live shows only.

While, no doubt, each still remains an individual solo artist with solo releases, suchas the 2008 release of Mark Stuart’s Left of

Nashville and Stacey Earle’s The Ride also in 2008), it is throughthe respect of each oth-er’s work and years ofplaying together that they have created theirunique sound. And that sound allows each indi-vidual to shine through. Stacey and Mark are no doubt together ‘til death do they part.

Please be sure to join us for what will bea memorable evening with these two very engaging singer/song-writers.

The gig is on Satur-day, July 30 at Holy Trin-ity Anglican Church, at 1962 Murray Road.Doors open at 7:30 p.m. with show at 8. Ticketsare $15 and are avail-able at the door or in advance at Shopper’s Drug Mart.

Arts & EntertainmentArts & EntertainmentArt from colours and shards of glass Two artists to will be exhibiting their work at the Sooke Harbour House during the month of August

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

Cycles of life, shards of history, and seeds of creativity are three ele-ments that happen to blend into the work of Deryk Houston and Eliz-abeth Wellburn. Hous-ton and Wellburn are a couple and artists who will be combining their talents for a month-long exhibition at the Sooke Harbour House during the month of August.

The cycles of life come from Houston’s paintings which attempt to answer the question of “Why we are here” and distance between good and bad.

The shards of his-tory translates in dif-ferent ways for each of the artists. Houston’s fascination with war and Wellburn’s trans-formation of discarded glass into stained glass windows. The seeds of creativity are there for the both of them.

Houston states that his work is about peace and war and the thin thread that separates the two.

He explains his work, “Our studies of atomic

structure and equations can be used for bombs or medicine so I might feature those equations in my paintings. I find it interesting to note how someone might quote Gandhi one day and support military inter-vention the next. Also interesting that this flaw of logic is likely in us all at some time. My art helps me find answers or at least cope with these realities.”

Houston has had one man exhibitions in the former Soviet Union, Iraq, Scotland, the U.S.A. and Canada. His work was featured in the National Film Board of Canada’s documen-tary, From Baghdad to Peace Country.

He has an anti-war piece in the Cana-dian War Museum in Ottawa. In the perma-nent collection, with the recommendation of The National Gallery of Canada.

Then couple are reg-ular visitors to Sooke and have recently purchased a home here. They have a soft spot for this area and together they are cur-rently working on a book about Point No

Point. Wellburn is the writer and Houston, the illustrator. They previ-ously worked together on the children’s book, Echoes from the Square, published by Rubicon Publishing.

Wellburn describes her work: “I start with

discarded windows from heritage houses and work with chunks of recycled glass (chipped serving dishes, old stemware and scraps of glass from any source I can access). I kilnform the individual chunks to flatten, smooth and/

or provide texture, and use a crystal clear two-component epoxy to adhere the chunks to the original win-dow. The results are very three-dimensional (relief) and of course they transmit light in the way that a stained

glass window would.”Local Colour will fea-

ture 20 pieces of art-work from Aug. 1 to 27. The Sooke Harbour House Gallery is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The Legendary Betty Frank the Cariboo’s Alpine Queen

Author: Betty Frank and Sage Birchwater

Caitlin Press236 pages, soft cover

Every community has its legendary char-

acters and the Cariboo is no exception. Betty Frank lived and loved in the mountains around the Williams Lake area for many years running a trap line and guide business. She was as tough as any man, but they always knew she was a woman.

From her isolated childhood in the Peace River country to the coastal communities where she skipped and played among the log booms in Owen Bay. She was strong willed and fiercely indepen-dent, the perfect com-bination for her future as a teacher in north-ern B.C. She put her-self through school in Victoria and acquired a teaching certificate, which proved to be

her passport to north-ern British Columbia. She did teach but her dream had always been to be a game guide and a trapper. She raised dogs and kids and mar-ried a time or two. She was a free spirit when women were expected to tow a more conven-tional line. She is a true adventurer and one-of-a-kind. Characters such as Betty Frank are disappearing as the years roll by and unfor-tunately they are now most often captured on the pages of books rather than in the back country.

This book offers just a glimpse into this woman’s life and leaves you nostalgic for char-acters such as she. She is now 80 years old, and

her feisty spirit is still going strong. She even dressed up as Lady Gaga for Halloween last year.

Local woman travels the world as Copper CowgirlSharron HoSooke News Mirror

When painted bronze and dressed in chaps and cowboy hat with gravity-defying pigtails, Claire Bezuidenhout is unrecognizable.

The 29-year-old Sooke resident works in the unorthodox pro-fession of street perfor-mance art.

Usually seen in downtown Victoria as the Copper Cowgirl, Bezuidenhout pulls four to eight hour shifts as a statue that comes to life with the drop of a coin.

“I’m coin operated so I’m really still, and then if you put a coin in I kind of come to life,” Bezuidenhout said.

In robotic type move-ments, Bezuidenhout playfully enacts west-ern scenes like quick draws and stare downs with random strangers.

“I love it. It’s a lot of fun to kind of amaze

people, and it’s so much fun being able to make people laugh,” she said.

After honing her craft for about four years, which includes a two year stint studying the-atre in Paris, Bezuiden-hout can remain so still that many passers-by don’t realize she’s a living and breathing human.

“I scare a lot of peo-ple a lot of the time because they don’t notice me right away, because they think I’m a statue, and then I’ll move and they’ll freak out,” she laughed.

Bezuidenhout stated the best part of her job

is interacting with the crowd -- sometimes unbeknownst to the victim.

“A lot of the time they’re not expecting it, they’re just going about their daily lives and they come and have this random encounter where they get to be silly and fun.”

The idea behind the Copper Cowgirl, who was modelled after Annie Oakley, Calamity Jane and Jessie from Disney’s Toy Story, came from a desire to live out a childhood dream.

“I always wanted to be a real cowgirl when I was a little girl,” she

said, adding the adven-turous western wran-gler spirit and her love of horses drew her to assume the persona.

Down-to-earth with a hint of eccentricity, it is almost befitting that Bezuidenhout entered the performing arts cir-cuit upon her gradua-tion from the University of Victoria with a bach-elor of arts.

After having mar-velled at statue street performers as a spec-tator, Bezuidenhout decided to travel the world in the profes-sion.

“I like the blending of art and performance, those are two things I really like. I thought it’d be a really nice way to be artistic and travel at the same time.”

Her act has taken her to New Zealand, Austra-lia, the United Kingdom, France, Spain, Italy, Greece and Germany.

When in Europe, the Copper Cowgirl is retired, and Bezuiden-

hout assumes the role of Ulla the Viking -- just to fit in with the cul-ture.

In the Canadian win-ter months, the Copper Cowgirl travels with the summer and moves to Australia.

This summer, Bei-zuidenhout partici-pated in the Victoria International Buskers Festival, Halifax Inter-national Busker Festival and will appear at the upcoming Scotiabank Buskerfest in Toronto from Aug. 23 to 26.

Epilepsy Toronto runs the event, which serves as their largest fundraiser for the year.

“I feel really great about all the proceeds of the festival going to them,” Beizuidenhout said.

Pottery artist makes first showing at SFAS Brittany LeeSooke News Mirror

Marcelle Glock, also known as the Mad Mud Slinger, demonstrates her pottery and clay work at the Sooke Fine Arts Show last Friday.

It was a first for the 37 year old, who is from Mudge Island located between Gabriola Island and Nanaimo.

“The volunteers, they are so warm, friendly, accommodating, and I think that’s been the biggest (enjoyment),” Glock says.

Seeing the work of other artists has been inspiring, she adds.

“I get inspired by the glasswork, the paint-ings, the fibres, just the creative energy that’s everywhere.”

Glock’s work is a mix-ture of functional pot-tery and ornate clay sculptures.

“I merge the two, like a sculpture might have a slight purpose or something that’s func-tional might be quite ornate,” she says of her work.

What makes her work stand out is that every piece is wood-fired.

“There’s a certain

type of surface beauty that you can really only get from wood-firing,” Glock says.

Although Glock has had an interest in art

since a young age, she didn’t focus on pottery and clay work until she was about 18 years old, when she apprenticed with a master potter

from Gabriola Island.To learn more about

Glock and her work, visit www.madmud-slinger.com.

Sports & Leisure B1Sports & Leisure B1Final tournament for Slo-Pitch president Mike Gibson, Sooke Slo-Pitch Association president, leaving after 27 years of involvement in tourney

Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

The Sooke Slo-Pitch Asso-ciation tournament, which ran from Aug. 4 to 6 in the Fred Milne park area, will be the last for association pres-ident, Mike Gibson.

Gibson, now in his late 50s, is ready to pass on the torch after running the event for 27 years.

“Somebody else can do my job,” he said, adding it will be a bittersweet depar-ture to leave the tight-knit Sooke slow pitch commu-nity.

And the feeling may be mutual, as Gibson was awarded two memorial tro-phies, the George Hovell and Larry Grunow, for his hard work and dedication.

The reason behind his resignation is simply age.

“I’m getting too old to play with the young peo-ple,” Gibson explained. “My reactions are not as good as what they used to be.”

His last year as president of the association, which he overtook in ‘84, was marked with the introduction of a men’s division and the con-struction of parallel parking along Sooke River Road.

The parallel parking cost $2,000 to develop and had 67 cars parked per day on average. The cost and labour of the parking lot was borne by the association.

Gibson said the tourna-

ment, which saw 26 mixed teams and six men’s teams participate, was a success.

“The tournament went really well. Everybody had a good time, there were no problems in the beer gar-den, no problems on the playing field,” he said. “It’s a family event.”

Although his affiliation with the Sooke Slo-PItch Association will end, Gibson doesn’t intend to stop play-ing ball. He has plans to join the Victoria Men’s Masters Slopitch League for players

aged 40 and up. Standings for the tourna-

ment are listed below: A divisionFirst place: GazoosSecond place: Jack Ham-

mer Third place: Team Works Fourth place: Big Rock

Masonry B division First place: Anything’s

tless Third place: Readers Fourth place: Ash Souls Men’s division First place: K-9 Second place: Pemberton

$200 to $1,000 along with other material prizes.

Local teen joins provincial team Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

One of only two base-ball players in Sooke has been selected to play in the Canada Cup National Cham-pionships in London, Ontario from Aug. 8 to 12.

Kurt Horne, 15, set himself a part at a four-day try out camp in Langley last month, where 120 players were parred down to 20 for the B.C. U17 Selects pro-vincial baseball team.

“It was a really cool experience getting to see all the levels of baseball, all the talent that comes from B.C.,” Horne said.

The tournament will see scouts from 30 Major League Baseball teams and a chance to be chosen for next year’s junior national team -- a current goal for Horne.

Although the pres-sure is on, Horne responded to the great-est opportunity of his career yet in a calm and collected manner.

“It’s been nerve-wracking, but I think it’ll be a really great experi-ence. I just hope to play well when I’m there.”

During the regular season, the Edward Milne community school student plays for the Victoria Eagles in the B.C. Premier

league. Standing nearly six-

foot-five, the teen’s height and left-handed pitch have gained him the reputation as the, ‘Big, left-handed kid from Victoria.’

“He’s a left-handed thrower, which is not

as common as right-handed throwing in baseball, so it kind of makes him special,” said Victoria Eagles coach, Gautam Srivas-tava.

“Pitching wise he’s got really, really good mechanics, and he

throws quite hard for his age.”

Srivastava only began coaching Horne this year, but has been watching him grow as a player since he was eight years old.

“He’s come a long way this year... if he

continues on that path, I think the sky is the limit for him.”

To which Horne’s father agreed.

“I wish I had half his talent when I was his age, and you know, his brother feels the same way, too,” said Rocky Horne.

“Kurt’s dedicated himself to be a qual-ity baseball player. All the hard work he’s put forth has brought him to the position he’s at right now.”

Coming from a family of baseball fanatics, it was a natural progres-sion for Horne to pur-sue the sport.

As former baseball players, Horne’s father and older brother gave the teen his foundation in the game.

But it was his pater-nal grandfather who should be credited with introducing Horne to the sport.

As a tot, prior to offi-cially joining the sport at five years old, Horne’s grandfather taught him how to hit a golf ball-sized Wiffle ball with a broom stick -- opening the flood gate to a life of baseball.

“I’d get home from school, and the first thing you’d do is go out back and play a game of baseball,” Horne said.

What Is Distributed Learning?If you haven’t given Distributed Learning a try, then now is the time to explore your potential as a learner!

Distributed Learning (DL) allows everyone to have access to their education anywhere and anytime. Through the flexibility of learning outside of the traditional classroom it allows you to learn at a distance from your teacher whether you are working at home, you are attending another school or you are in a mobile phase of your life.

At WestShore Centre we offer Distributed Learning courses to students in grades 10 to 12 or for adults who are: returning to upgrade for graduation, improving their academic status for registration at a post secondary school/college, improving their skills for the career they have now or for those wishing to be lifelong learners.

It is not always feasible for learners to take time away from work, families or other studies to gain the education they desire. That is why the Distributed Learning model works so well for so many people and why it is now one of the fastest-growing

forms of education in the province of British Columbia. At WestShore we are able to offer you a full range of courses through the DL model.

Distributed Learning offers an engaging learning environment with access to our incredible WestShore teaching staff. The majority of our courses are offered on-line in computer-based environments; however, we also have paper-based courses if that suits your learning preference.

The Future is at WestShoreWe have 5 outstanding teachers, who are teaching the Futures Program at WestShore.

11 cohort is shared between Tanya Berg (English and Socials) and Dermott Crofton (Math and Sciences).

This program of choice utilizes the newest blend of technology and education available.

Students in this program stay as a cohort so that they are able to build strong relationships with each other and create a vibrant learning community. The energetic staff works hard to ensure an excellent blend of the academic, social and emotional growth for each student.

The students who emerge from the Futures Program leave with more than excellent experiences from being in a modern learning environment.

Young fishermen reels prize winning fish A Sooke teen brought in a 44-pound Chinook to win the top $5,000 prize at last weekend’s derby

Sharron HoSooke News Mirror

On Aug. 4, 14-year-old Zack Homer caught a fish story to tell for generations.

The local teen reeled in a nearly 44-pound Chinook to win the Sooke Salmon Enhanc-ment Derby first place cash prize of $5,000.

Homer and his grand-father, Dave Homer, set out on the open ocean at 5 a.m. for the first day of the derby.

What was expected to be a regular day of fishing turned when the teen snagged the mas-sive salmon around 6:45 a.m. near Shering-ham Point.

“It was really excit-ing,” he said.

“We actually got it tangled in another per-son’s line, and it was just me and my grandpa there, so my grandpa was helping me out.”

The third party fish-erman was kind enough to release his line, so that Homer and his grandfather could bring in the prize Chinook.

According to Homer, the monster-size salmon put up a fight that lasted about 45 minutes.

The fishing line ran right to the end, causing Homer and his grandfa-ther to trail behind the resistant salmon with their boat.

“We had to chase it with the boat so we could get a little line,” Homer stated.

His grandfather con-tinued to untangle the line, while Homer reeled in the fish.

At first uncertain whether or not they had a handle on the salmon, Homer said it was clear it was a win-ner when netted.

“You could see him coming over the boat

when we netted him that it was a big one. You definitely didn’t want to mess up.”

The first-time derby entrant will be sharing the prize money with his fishing mentor and grandfather, who won second place in the derby last year.

“I’m splitting it with my grandpa because he’s taken me out lots of times and he took me out that time, too.”

Homer added his grandfather, and great grandfather have been taking him out on the water since he was one years old.

Although his parents would like him to allo-cate the winnings to a college fund, Homer has other plans.

“I’m not sure what I’m doing with the rest, maybe put it towards an ATV or something.”
