Miral is 30-years-old and is determined and excited about the pos- sibility of writing about and filming life on Mars. “It’s something inside, something I’ve always wanted to do… I’ve always been inter- ested in space, science fiction and I watched a lot of Star Trek, that was the start of my dream,” said Miral. “I never thought I would have the opportunity to do that, I’m thankful and if I don’t go I’m still thankful.” Miral is an indepen- dent, free-thinker and a modern day explorer.

She said she was dis- appointed when she was older that the world wasn’t like that and now that it is start- ing she is even more excited. “Basically we would build a life up there and explore a new world,” she said. “My parents are really excited for me and support me. This is the last frontier and that’s so exciting.” The idea of never returning home is not scaring Miral, she feels the experience will outweigh it and going to space is “absolutely worth it.” The candidates will spend at least 10 years training for the Mars landing sometime in 2025. “The idea is to get people prepared to stay there forever, I’m completely commit- ted,” said Miral.

Going where no one has gone beforeEast Sooke resident hopes to land on Mars

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

Marina Miral feels, in some way, that she was born in the wrong cen-tury. She has an adven-turous outlook and would have been an explorer and early set-tler in the New World if she had been born in another time and place.

The spirit is there and so is her determina-tion to become a space age explorer. Miral has been short listed as one of 1,058 potential astro-nauts who may eventu-ally land on Mars and live in a permanent human colony — never to return to Earth.

Mars One is a non-profit organization led by Dutch entrepre-neur Bas Lansdorp. He announced the private spaceflight project in May 2012 and screened 200,000 applications. East Sooke resident Marina Miral is one of the chosen ones. Her application process involved a video and essays on why she wanted to land on Mars and why she was right for the project.

Miral is 30-years-old and is determined and excited about the pos-sibility of writing about and filming life on Mars.

“It’s something inside, something I’ve always wanted to do… I’ve always been inter-ested in space, science fiction and I watched a lot of Star Trek, that was the start of my dream,” said Miral. “I never thought I would have the opportunity to do that, I’m thankful and if I don’t go I’m still thankful.”

Miral is an indepen-dent, free-thinker and a modern day explorer. She has lived in many places in British Colum-bia and loves spend-ing time in uncrowded places and seeks her solitude along paths less travelled. She doesn’t want children and is committed to pursuing this journey on the red planet.

“Basically we would build a life up there and explore a new world,” she said. “My parents are really excited for me and support me. This is the last frontier and that’s so exciting.”

The idea of never returning home is not scaring Miral, she feels the experience will outweigh it and going to space is “absolutely worth it.”

The candidates will spend at least 10 years training for the Mars landing sometime in 2025.

“The idea is to get people prepared to stay there forever, I’m

completely commit-ted,” said Miral.

Miral would be leav-ing behind her sib-lings and parents. She has two sisters and a brother and only the younger sister is sad

about it. Her mother Angela Dorsey is behind Marina 100 per cent.

“The whole program in general is amazing,” said Dorsey. “It’s one of those things… I don’t

want her to leave but it’s an amazing oppor-tunity to make history. I wouldn’t dream of discouraging her, the potential is so big.”

She said that Marina wanting to do this is not surprising to her at all.

“She’s always been a true adventurer, she was born a century or two too late to do it in this world.”

Miral has always envied people who settled first in the New World and said that this Mars mission is “even cooler.”

The Mars One website states that before they leave the Earth’s atmosphere to travel to Mars, each astronaut will be put through the required eight years of train-ing.

In addition to the exper-tise and work experi-ence they must already possess, they have to learn quite a few new skills: physical and elec-trical repairs, cultivat-ing crops in confined spaces, and address-

ing both routine and serious medical issues. (See more at: http://www.mars-one.com/mission/humankind-on-mars).

“I’ve always loved liv-ing in tiny spaces and I don’t want things,” said Miral.

Dorsey said a lot of people don’t under-stand Marina but stated her daughter is very enthusiastic, polite and kind.

“People think I’m nuts and I don’t blame them,” said Miral. “I want people to know that some people are trying to protect us as naive applicants. It’s not like that, I have an inner drive to explore and sacrifice. I would like people to support the mission and not attack it. Everybody is different and I’m willing to put everything on the line for an opportu-nity to go to Mars.”

So whether or not Miral gets chosen to land on Mars 10 years from now, she isn’t giv-ing up on dreams of adventures and travel. As an alternative to col-onizing Mars, she said she would like to get a sailboat and sail off on the seven seas.

Mars One is destined to become a reality show at a cost of $6 bil-lion.

“How many people do you think would want to watch the first humans arrive on Mars?” Lansdorp asked in a recent interview.

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

A special council meeting was held on Monday, January 6 to deal with unfinished business.

A number of viola-tions in regard to build-ing permits, issued to Sooke Prestige Hotel, had been noted by Sooke’s building inspec-tors. On the agenda at the November 25 coun-cil meeting was the rec-ommendation to direct the corporate officer to file a notice in the Victo-ria Land Title office. An Occupancy Permit had not been issued by the District of Sooke.

The building inspec-tors found issues with incorrect address-ing on schedules and schedules omitting the penthouse, as well as fire suppression sys-tems, mechanical and plumbing. Basically it came down to inade-quate sign off in those areas.

At the January 6

meeting it was noted that all the bylaw vio-lations had been dealt with and the district was satisfied that all of the permits were now in order.

A Development Vari-anace Permit for 2680 Otter Point Road was tabled while council seeks more informa-tion on the issue of water supply and infra-structure. The DVP was brought before council for reconsideration by Mayor Wendal Milne after it has not been approved by council at the December 9, 2013 meeting.

The proponant was looking to build another home and was seeking a variance to the water servicing standards, specifically a well rather than con-necting to the munici-pal water supply pro-vided through the Capi-tal Regional District Water Service.

Neighbours of the proponant were on hand to talk to council about their issues with

water, or lack of it, in the area.

The neighbours were concerned that any further consumption of water would cripple the water source of the downstream proper-ties.

Randy Clarkston, speaking for the appli-cant, stated that there would be no added pressure on surface water if another resi-dence was added.

The nearby residents

disagreed with this statement. The pro-ponant did not want to drill another deep well.

R. Low said one of the saddest things is that the CRD has been mak-ing promises of hook-ing them up to munici-pal water for years and they still have to purchase water when their well runs dry. The aquifer which supplies water to the area is not re-charging at a rate where everyone has

sufficient water. He said they pay taxes thereby subsidizing CRD water and they still have to pay for trucked-in water. He wants to see the district and CRD step up to the plate and get the homes onto the municipal water sup-ply.

At issue as well is the water supplier who will be charging custom-ers more for the water they deliver. The CRD has constructed three

new water dispensing stations and disallow-ing water suppliers to use fire hydrants as dispensing stations, which is prohibited. The bulk water carriers would require a permit to purchase water from the new dispensing stations. The dispens-ing stations are now in Langford, Sooke with the East Sooke station to be completed this year.

East Sooke hiker focus of searchEast Sooke woman still missing

On the night of Thursday, January 2, Sooke RCMP received a missing person call. A 59-yrear-old woman later identified by her first name, Robin, was last seen by her hus-band at home earlier that afternoon. He became concerned when she had not returned home by 5:30 that night, and after locating her car at a parking lot in the East Sooke park, initiated a private search. The woman is known to be familiar with East Sooke Park.

The Sooke RCMP were notified at 9:00 p.m., and a search was initiated by 11:00 that night.

Hundreds of trained Search and Rescue volunteers came from throughout the region to assist with the search, coming from Nanaimo, Ladysmith, Duncan, Saltspring and the Lower Mainland. Searches were con-ducted throughout the park, in the water, and also by air.

The search was sus-pended by the Sooke RCMP on 9:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 5.

There was some media mention of a found pack of cigarettes and some footprints,

both of which were pur-sued by the Search and

Rescue volunteers. The footprints were unre-

lated, and the area in which the pack of ciga-rettes were found was exhaustively searched with no results.

According to the RCMP, the Juan de Fuca Search and Rescue will be conducting search exercises at the park, thereby informally continuing the search efforts for the missing woman.

Anyone with informa-tion can call the Sooke detachment at 250-642-5241.

The family has requested her full name not be released.

Staff Sergeant Steve Wright transfers to

WestshoreIn the next few

months, Sooke will be loosing Staff Sergeant Steve Wright to the Westshore detachment, where he will take up a new role as their Opera-tions Commander. His replacement will be coming from Prince George. Once the trans-fer becomes official, we will be providing his name to our readers.

Wright will continue to live in Sooke, and will also continue his volunteer work with the local Lions Club. Wright has worked with the RCMP for 33 years, and started in Sooke on December 1, 2009.

Get a taste of Vietnamese culture on Saturday, Jan. 11

Britt SantowskiSooke News Mirror

On January 11, resi-dents of Sooke have an opportunity to trip on over to Vietnam for an evening. Or rather, for a taste of Vietnamese culture at the Sooke Legion anyway.

The Canada World Youth (CWY) students who have recently come to our town will be hosting a Giving Means Fundraiser din-ner, which will be held at the Legion on Satur-day, starting at 7 p.m.

According to Viet-namese exchange stu-dent Chi Tran, a major component of the eve-ning will be to portray Vietnam as the coun-try it is today. Chi Tran views the exchange program as an opportu-nity both to learn how to live with others in different cultures, and also to act as a spokes-person for today’s Viet-nam.

“Vietnam is a devel-oping country,” she emphasized.

Many in the western world think of Vietnam in terms of the Vietnam war, which was con-

cluded almost 40 years ago with the fall of Sai-gon on April 30, 1975.

“Vietnam is devel-oping at an astonish-ing pace,” writes the Lonely Planet, adding “Vietnam’s economy is growing at more than 8% … . The future is bright.”

And the BBC pegs it as having “one of south-east Asia’s fastest-grow-ing economies and has set its sights on becom-ing a developed nation by 2020.”

Vietnamese project supervisor Son Truong shares Tran’s passion on wanting to project an image of today’s Vietnam. Both he and Tran want the guests of Sooke’s Good Evening Vietnam to get a taste of their culture.

One of Canada’s exchange students, Noah Charbonneau from Beaverton of

northern Ontario, said he has become a mas-ter roller of spring rolls.

The traditional Viet-namese menu set for that evening will include spring rolls, fried rice, Vietnamese-styled beef, salad and a dessert. Which all of the 18 exchange stu-dents will have had a hand in creating (nine from Vietnam, and nine from across Canada).

The evening will also include bamboo danc-ing, traditional ao dai (Vietnamese traditional costume) dancing, and a silent auction. Diners will have the splendid opportunity to shed a few calories by partici-pating in the bamboo dancing. Instruction will be provided.

The funds that are raised will go towards the Canada World Youth Giving Means project. This year, the

Sooke CWY students will fundraise for four countries: Ghana, Hon-duras, Bolivia and Kenya. The projects include a women’s shel-ter technology centre (Bolivia); a community bakery and equipment rental for community events (Ghana); a build-ing latrines for health-ier waste management and a crafts microen-terprise for people liv-ing with HIV/AIDS (Hon-duras); and, a camping equipment rental initia-tive and local agricul-tural initiative (Kenya).

According to their website (canada-worldyouth.org), “Giv-ing Means projects are youth-led development

projects that promote change in the local community and pro-vide economic oppor-tunities for the youth involved.” So far, CWY teams have raised over $35,000 across Canada.

Project supervisor Dana Holtby, Sooke has been involved with CWY for over 20 years. This dinner would be a great opportunity for anyone interested in the Canada World Youth program, inter-cultural events, and/or Vietnamese culture.

When Les Eve asked on the phone if I’d noticed the obitu-ary for Edgar Arnet of Tofino, both of us were thinking of the years the Arnet family mem-bers spent in Sooke. It was in the closing years of World War II that we all got to know Edgar and his sister Beverly when we were going to school together, first at Sooke and then at Milnes Landing High.

Jacob Arnet was the patriarch; born in Trondheim, Norway, he fished with his father in the Lofoten Islands and as a young immigrant pre-empted a home-stead in Tofino in 1893. His sweetheart trav-elled out to join him and the couple raised six stalwart sons and a daughter. All of the sons, Edgar, Harold, Karl, Bjarne, Trygve and Walter became well-known fishermen, and four became offi-cers in the Fishermen’s Naval Reserve during World War II.

As there were no canneries on the coast when Jacob Arnet started fishing, the fish had to be salted down in barrels, which the family made them-selves. The nets they used for seining, and cedar floats, were also fashioned by their own hands. The Arnets were recognized as one of the leading fishing fami-lies of the BC coast, and until the road to Tofino was opened in 1959, they operated in a relatively remote

area, packing their fish to Vancouver markets. The second generation Arnets owned several boats, fishing primar-ily for halibut, besides salmon seining.

Brothers Bjarne and Trygve were the men I had the opportunity to meet, (from afar only, I was just a little girl) as the two had married sisters, the daughters of Vancouver Island historian and entre-preneur Major George Nicholson. The two vivacious Nicholson girls had attended school in Sooke years earlier when their dad was a businessman here (think of the Bel-vedere Hotel) so it was a bit of old home town for them.

Bjarne and Bonnie Arnet set up a home on Sooke Road (later sold in the mid-1950s

to the Jim Owen family) and their two children Edgar and Bev joined the school and social scene. Trygve and Gre-tel Arnet made their home in Vic West, and their daughter Lorraine went to Vic High, at the same time as Sooke’s own Pat Forrest was

attending there. Pat, who has spent his life-time fishing, says that the two Arnet broth-ers that he got to know well, Bjarne and Trygve, were among the finest men he ever met.

When Beverly Arnet finished school she became a dance teacher, with reviews and performances held at Sooke Com-munity Hall. She mar-ried the son of an old Sooke family, Nelson Cook, and the couple left Sooke for Nelson’s work up-island. While Edgar moved back to the old family haunts of Tofino, and Beverly Cook lives there today, the Arnet chapter of Sooke’s history added a bit of dash and glam-our for us all.

Hook ‘em up to water source

Wars have been fought over water and neighbours have carried on feuds over water. Water is essential to all life making it an extremely precious commodity. On the West Coast we take water for granted because it pours down in buckets, but it isn’t as readily available as one might think. There are places on the coast where cisterns are utilized and water is conserved.

Municipal water systems are costly both because of the infrastructure and the maintenance. So one would think that hooking more folks up to the supply would lessen the financial aspect. But, it is not a decision of the municipality but of the CRD. It is expensive to lay water lines and this is usually done when there is the prospect of a larger housing development.

Where unsafe drinking water is a risk then there is a chance to get hooked up, but when it is merely an issue of supply, then many residents are left on their own. Most rural residences have wells and water is supplied from the aquifer lying far beneath the surface. Unfortunately many aquifers are inadequate to supply the number of wells on it and there lies the problem for homeowners along Otter Point Road.

Perhaps they need to petition the CRD to get them hooked up, perhaps they need to band together to pay for laying water mains. Whatever they choose to do will be costly, but with the assurance of a water supply their property values will likely increase and offset the initial costs.

We take water for granted, until we don’t have any, and then it becomes a big problem. The District of Sooke council and the Juan de Fuca director can lobby the CRD and perhaps this would resolve some of the issues in this case.

People shouldn’t have to go without safe drinking water when the source is so close. It’s a basic need not a luxury.

FEATURE LETTER

Even though I received a hand delivered notification of the pending clearing of the corridor, there was no mention in the document of the upcoming meeting, nor any links or references to the design details of the connector.  I feel there should have been, and the fact there wasn’t is troubling.

I am very much opposed to the design that is being recommended.  By the tone of the press release it sounds as if this recommendation has already been approved by coun-cil, although the Transportation Plan of 2008 determined that side-walks would run the length of the corridor. 

After some digging through the DoS website in order to find the pro-posed plan, I can clearly see that sidewalks are not part of this design.  As much as I like trails, in this case, a trail is most certainly not a better alternative to sidewalks.

I was one of many dozen people who took part in the appropriately thorough public consultation pro-cesses back in 07/08, which lead to the Transportation Master Plan.  The outcome of all the meetings and open houses resulted in a parallel connector concept which included sidewalks on both sides of the road. 

Changing that at this late moment, with only a month’s notice to the public makes me question the cred-ibility and transparency of this pro-cess under this council. 

I understand how badly the DoS

wants to use the multi-use trail grant won by the previous administration for the multi-use trail connection between Church and Phillips Road, but I don’t think that’s a compelling enough reason to shirk the responsi-bility of responsible civic investment in our public roadways, even though in the short term, it’s cheaper. 

To my mind, the existing multi-use trail connector, which cuts through John Phillips Park and heads to Journey school ought to be paved, as that will attract more people to using it for transportation and rec-reation — like a Galloping Goose right in Sooke.  That would be more effective at getting pedestrians and cyclists a safer or more pleasant alternative to using roads.

While I’m on the topic, I under-stand that Anna Marie Road is also to be changed.  While in general I support road improvements which contribute to public safety and to better traffic flow, what I’ve heard is that the Townsend Road inter-section design will be replicated at Anna Marie and Highway 14, and I don’t see how that will accomplish either of those goals. 

I think a better place to start would be by getting a handle on the uncontrolled intersections on either side of Anna Marie Road, where it intersects Highway 14.  The same could be said for a great many other uncontrolled intersections along the highway. A right-in, right-out at Anna Marie at this point seems pre-

mature, and will not be good for the businesses on the road.

I don’t know if a traffic count has ever occurred on Anna Marie — I’ve never seen one.  But with Midway and the library seeing dozens and dozens of visits every day, I foresee significant problems being created by restricting access to Anna Marie Road without the immediate incor-poration of counter measures.

One last thing; the crosswalk that’s been created in order to con-nect the new gravel path parallel to Church road has got to be the most dangerous crosswalks around.  The sight lines are almost non existent, and the traffic levels and speeds that intersection see, especially during school pick up and drop off, already make it a dangerous intersection.

At least put up some of those flourescent signs that alert people of a road change.  When school’s back in session after the winter break, there will be a lot of activity at that intersection and I would hate to hear of someone being hurt or killed there simply because council disre-garded the importance behind road users being made aware of such a significant change to the road.

Seeking an old friend

I read an article which was sent to me by a friend in Australia about Mr. Tony Brogan whom I used to appear on the same Amateur Boxing bills in Devon in the U.K. back in the 1960. In fact, we both appeared in an exhibi-tion bout which was two weeks before Tony won the A.B.A. Heavy-weight championship at Wembley in London.

I would dearly love to contact him via e-mail therefore would be very grateful if you could possibly send me his e-mail address of course, with his per-mission, failing that would it be possible for you to pass on my e-mail address to him, ([email protected])which I would be grate-ful for.

Yours in anticipation. Peter Hayfield

Community needs amenities

Developers want to pay less for amenities or do they want to do less for amenities when they develop or both?

The District of Sooke asks for amenities such as sidewalks, lighting, parks,community gar-dens, etc.

If certain ame-nity requests are not needed for this area, there could be a charge for monies needed for other amenity, like perhaps a town cen-

tre square or a round- about. Monies would be set aside from the amenity payments to build these needs of the community.

The developments put more pressure on the need to keep our community develop-ing as per our Offical Community Plan. Staff has done the analysis of what would hap-pen if we dropped the amenity charges to half, which the writer, Cownden, proposed. The anylsis showed that the district would receive no benefit at all. If development  doesn’t pay, then we the tax-payer will.

The question is, is there a need for higher density when the

majority of buyers are looking for single fam-ily dwellings? The lack of sales of the higher density development at Mariner’s Village should show us that.

Perhaps we are not ready for a high density or a  high-rise village.

Do we build for developers or for the community?

Wild by Nature or not?

Dumping is illegal and dangerous

To the person(s) who dumped their gar-bage on Tregear Road

recently. We do not appreciate you dump-ing your househouse-hold garbage and lawn debris here.

As we have stated before: We are not the Sooke dump. There is a place for your garbage, needles, syringes and I.V. bags,  The dump is on Sooke River Road and Marilyn Road.

I don’t want to have to rush my dogs into the vet because a nee-dle is hanging out of them, or maybe a child to the doctor because of a needle stuck in their foot. People do hike up here with their dogs frequently.

I know you were cleaning your house up,  but don’t you have garbage collection

like everybody else does?  So why did you have to come out here and dump when you got your own garbage can to put it into?  

I believe we all have these big blue contain-ers on wheels that say “Sooke Disposal” on them. I do believe this is where our garbage goes. So, if you don’t mind replying to the newspaper with your address, I would love to come and dump my garbage in your yard. Let’s see how you like it, kitty litter, old chicken bones and all types of rotting garbage. It is not a very pleasant sight or smell to see when you drive up the road.

So keep in mind that there is a dump in Sooke and it doesn’t cost that much to drop off your garbage there. Could you please add that the dumping hap-pened between Decem-ber 27 and the 29.

It seems that the public does not under-stand where the dump is.  The dump is not my back yard as the public seems to think this.

I wish Sooke disposal

We asked: What is your favourite part of winter?

Coming to Sooke. It’s nice and warm. I’m from Invermere.

would hurry up and get there butts in gear and find a proper dumping site for the residents of Sooke, instead of peo-ple using every off road and private property that they can find.

It is disgusting and dangerous, especially when the public is dumping needles and stuff on the ground in open view. I see that the person who dumped  all of her hos-pital stuff in our yard, has dropped off some more needles and stuff. This time they emptied all the bags out all over the ground and your pile keeps growing every other day.  

So be kind enough and come and clean it up and dispose of it the proper way at the dump.

Land for cats wanted

The Sooke Animal Food and Rescue Soci-ety, SAFARS, is organiz-ing an animal rights protest in front of the District of Sooke on January 13, 2014 from 1 to 3 p.m. and from 5 to 7 p.m. A rally around town will be held dur-ing these hours.

In the past two years alone, we have rescued more than 190 cats from starva-tion and  illness.  Most of these animals have become traumatized by the  abandonment and by the lack of shelter, food and care. 

One of the main rea-sons these animals are  dumped like  trash in our wooden areas is the bad turn of the economy leading people to desperate situations.  Until now, SAFARS’ volunteers have been very suc-cessful in rehabilitating and finding homes  for the majority of these animals, but our group needs a little help from the District of Sooke. 

Our group has been requesting the district to lend or lease us a piece of land where we can build a facility. We are not asking for money, we will fund raise for the funds after.  The shelter will be used to  keep the animals until they are adopted out and  will also serve as a  free clinic and pet food bank  to low income families. Some of you

may think that this is a big dream, but we think it is a necessity, now more than ever. 

The nearest animal shelter, which does not rehabilitate  feral cats, is 40km away from Sooke. If Canadian citizens are donating money for  veterinaries to go spay/neuter, vac-cinate, deworm, deflea animals overseas why can this generosity not be included at home? 

 The fact that certain

individuals do not have a job or money,   does not mean they are not in need of companion-ship. Poor people need the friendship of  ani-mals just as much as any person who is more financially stable. That is why we are here. We want to help and ask of you to con-sider the work we do and how it positively affects the community we all live in. 

Please, join on Janu-

ary 13 and show kind-ness to animals.  Tell the district you care and that you want to have an animal shelter in Sooke.

Every year, after Christmas I meet people who tell me that they are so glad the season is over, that they are worn out from all the activity, that the whole season was a blur, that they didn’t experience any peace and fulfillment. It is as if they were on a merry go round they couldn’t get off until the season was over.

Unfortunately, what has happened in our western world is that the Christmas season has been hijacked by the commercial world. The busyness and the commercialism has destroyed a meaningful spiritual experience.

Instead of being a season of reflective watching and waiting it has become a season of excess—excess eating, drinking, partying and spending. From dawn to dusk during this time we are bombarded with loud messages telling us how we are to celebrate the season, while continually creating false needs and unreal expectations. We are promised fulfillment and happiness which somehow always remains just beyond our grasp.

Although the peaceful message Christmas has been drowned out by a noisy commercialism, now that most of it is behind us for another year, remember that the birth of Jesus is not the end of the story. Don’t think for a moment that Christmas is about the coming of a baby, it is about the coming of the One who will come to judge the living and the dead, it is about the coming of the risen reigning Lord who will call all the faithful into his kingdom.

In and of ourselves we are not in a position to change the ways of the world, however, if we truly desire to celebrate the spiritual truths by being proactive in our efforts, we can experience both the message and the meaning which brings peace and hope in all the seasons of life.

Ideas for living off the grid

On January 8th Awareness Film Night will be having a Renewable Energy Evening.  The evening will feature a film followed by a dis-cussion and question and answer period with Andrew Moore and Mike Geldreich focusing on the current practicalities and options when it comes to installing renew-able energy systems.

Part of the beauty of renewables is their availability.  We all get some sun, wind or geothermal heat and we can harvest that energy - no power company or massive cen-tralized plant needed.   The eve-ning’s film, Empowered: Power From the People, tells the story of Ithaca and Tompkins County in New York, one of the cloudi-est, least windy places in the U.S.,

yet residents there are proving that they can meet their energy needs through totally renewable resources such as wind, solar, geo-thermal and biodiesel.  

Film producer Suzanne McMan-nis, who has been living off the grid for over a decade, said, “I wanted to make a movie that dem-onstrates how practical, afford-able and fun it can be to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.”  

Bill McKibben, of “Deep Econ-

omy” fame, writes, “(Empowered) is a remarkable ground-up account of a revolution that’s really start-ing to alter things on this earth - and with any luck this movie will help many more people shake up their communities.”

After the film moviegoers will have an opportunity to find out more about the “nuts and bolts” of setting up renewable energy sys-tems in our area with experts in the field.  

Andrew Moore was the solar program manager for the T’souke First Nations on their award-win-ning solar installation.  

Mike Geldreich is an electrical contractor and “very green guy” who has been specializing in installing renewable energy sys-tems for 10 years

“Solar, wind, microhydro; we’ve done it all.” He is currently work-ing with O.U.R. Ecovillage in Shawnigan as well as on the new

CRD building in Sooke’s solar installation.

There will be a presentation from a company that produces a vertical axis wind turbine that spins like a merry-go-round.

Come and ask your questions: Are wind turbines noisy? Does my roof need to face the south for solar panels to work? What would it involve to go completely off grid? Is the cost going down for renewable energy systems? Should I wait? How would renew-ables fit into my current electrical set up? how practical, affordable and fun is it really?

The evening will start at 7 p.m. at the Edward Milne Community School theatre. Admission is by donation.

Casting call: Sooke Harbour Players spring showMusical Godspell in the works for local theatre group

It’s time for a cast-ing call for our Sooke Harbour Players spring show!

As some of you may know, the production of Show Time has been postponed.

So, in lieu of, the Board of Directors has approved the produc-tion of Godspell!

Godspell is a musical by Stephen Schwartz and a book by John-Michael Tebelak.

It opened off Broad-way on May 17, 1971, and has played in vari-

ous touring compa-nies and revivals many times since, including a 2011 revival which played on Broadway from October 13, 2011, to June 24, 2012 (we will be performing this latest Broadway ver-sion - check out songs on Youtube).

Several cast albums have been released over the years and one of its songs, Day by Day from the original cast album, reached #13 on the Billboard pop sin-gles chart in the sum-mer of 1972.

The structure of the musical is that of a series of parables, mostly based on the Gospel of Matthew (three of the featured parables are recorded

only in the Gospel of Luke).

The parables are interspersed with a variety of modern music set primarily to lyrics from traditional

hymns, with the pas-sion of Christ treated briefly near the end of the performance.

Auditions:WHERE: In Sooke

at the Sooke Harbour Players ‘Loft’ in Ever-green Plaza 6660 Sooke Rd. beside Bees Knees.

WHEN: Thursday, January 23 from 7 to 9 p.m. and 26 Sunday, January 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. (Probable third audition for call-backs and role placement.)

Rehearsals will start at the beginning of February (Most likely Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and Sunday afternoons).

There will be six shows on two week-ends on April 4, 5, 6, and 11, 12, 13 at the Edward Milne Commu-nity School (350 seat) theatre in Sooke.

What we need for volunteer cast:

• 14 leads - male/female, age 10+, (at least eight strong lead singers).

• 10-15 chorus - male/female, age 5+

Please come pre-pared with a song (pref-erably from Godspell, but from another musi-cal is okay) memorized and ready to sing.

Basic acting, danc-ing and choral singing skills preferred but not required.

We will have a script for reading.

What we need for volunteer production

Initiative aims to get children active, parents on same healthy pageDon FennellBlack Press

An hour a day of fit-ness can be made fun, especially when it is coupled with other healthy choices like eating right.

That’s the goal of the 60 Minute Kids’ Club, a fun and engaging online program designed to help get elementary school-aged children active.

The 60 Minute Kids’ Club is now looking to expand its community reach by partnering with Black Press.

“Our strong com-mitment to healthy communities is well-served in our partner-ship with the 60 Minute Kids’ Club” said Randy Blair, president of Black Press’ Lower Mainland

and Vancouver Island divisions. “The ben-efits of active families are so numerous, it will deliver increasingly great news.”

“We want to make (children being healthy) even more of a community effort,” said Gillian Thody, Western Canada manager of the 60 Minute Kids’ Club.

And that means engaging more parents on the importance of their children making healthy choices, while demonstrating healthy choices themselves. These include physical literacy (playing for at least 60 minutes each day), eating healthy (including five or more vegetables and fruits daily and eliminating sugar and sweetened drinks), and cutting back on computer and TV time (two hours or less).

Two 60-day chal-lenges and one 45-day challenge are held throughout the school year, skipping over busy times and holi-days.

The first challenge of the year from Oct.

1 to Dec. 1 has just wrapped up, with the second challenge set to begin Jan. 15. Schools across Canada par-

ticipate at the same time. Schools can sign up for the challenge at  www.60minkidsclub.org.

Each student logs in and tracks their own progress, receiving points for each log in, which aggregate under

their school. This enables organizers to determine the most active kids, grades, schools, districts, regions and provinces across Canada.

The 60 Minute Kids’ Club, which is aligned with Canadian Sport for Life, originated in 2009 with Innovative Fitness, a personal training business. At that time 5,000 Kindergarten through Grade 6 stu-dents in five schools in B.C., Ontario and Nova Scotia participated in a pilot program which produced encouraging

results. In 2012, 70 schools in

B.C. were involved and the program has now expanded to Alberta and Manitoba.

“We hope this year to engage 100 schools in B.C.,” said Thody.

HHee tthhinkkss they’re chatting abouutt the hhhospitall jello. His nurse is actually midwaay through dozens of assessmeents.

During the minutes spent at the bedside, a professional

nurse makes dozens of critical assessments. Any one

of them could mean the difference between recovery

and something that could result in tragedy.

Take direct patient care away from nurses and

vital knowledge affecting the health of patients is lost.

B.C. should be increasing the number of nurses,

not replacing them with care aides.

Ensuring nurses remain in direct contact with

patients is crucial to you and your loved ones.

While they may not be specialists in jello, when it comes

to safe patient care, professional nurses are irreplaceable.

Please sign BCNU’s petition for an independent assessment of Island Health’s unsafe patient care model, at BCNU.org/takeaction.

Francine Louise LoganMay 30/1956- December 14/2013

Francine passed away peacefully in her home with her loving husband and best friend of 51 years at her side after a long and brave fight with cancer.

Francine Louise Parks was born in Toledo, Oregon May 30, 1956. Her parents, Harold and Pauline Fine Parks were also born and raised in the Toledo area. Fran grew up in Toledo and Elk City,

Oregon. Swimming, camping, working with flowers were favorite activities. Her floral entries earned ribbons in the County fair. After graduating from Toledo High School in 1974 Francine attended floral school in Portland, Oregon and then worked in the industry. A job in a florist shop included a move to Coos Bay with daughters Rachelle and Tabitha then to the rural area near Winston, Or.

Fran met Douglas Logan of Victoria, BC, Canada, they married Sept 1998 in Las Vegas. Fran finally had time to let her creative side run wild.

She enjoyed working with yarn, making fragrant soaps, drawing and painting. Her yarn creations - shawls, felted purses and hats were featured in a Sooke, BC art gallery with many pieces being sold. Fran and Doug have lived in Sooke, BC since 1999 with their kitty Rocky. For several years they wintered in Mazatlan making wonderful friends there. Fran said her bucket list was completely fulfilled over the years as she won a race in their Corvette, went Para-sailing in Mexico and once piloted a Cessna airplane.

Surviving are husband Doug Logan, daughters Rachelle Littrell and Tabitha Richards of Oregon, her father Harold and his companion Shirley of Yuma, Arizonia. Stepchildren Michelle Kang (Sung-Su) of S. Koera, David (Ashley) and Robert of Victoria, beloved brother John (Gertrude) of Merritt, BC. A step-sister, Linda of Nevada and step-brother, David of BC, and mother-in-law Jenny Logan of Vancouver, BC. Grandchildren

AnnaMarie, Toren, Shannon, Emelia, Cruze and Noah and 1 great-grandson Asher.

She was preceded in death by her mother Pauline in 1982. Memorial contributions can be made to your local Hospice.

“forever is a long time but not long enough with you”

Jacquelyne Beth Gertsma“JACKIE” (nee: MacLean)

Sunrise: Oakburn Manitoba July 15th, 1932 Sunset: Sooke B.C., January 5th, 2014

Predeceased by parents Hector and Annie MacLean, sisters: Agnes, Maime, Margaret, brother Bud and nephew Jim.Jackie was a prairie girl to the core and never quite embraced living on the coast, always missing the farm in Alberta.The most important thing to Jackie was family, whether those gone before her, her beloved boys, or her Home Hardware family. Jackie LOVED to travel, was always up for “a song and dance”, loved music, sunsets and truly loved people and visiting. We think that’s what she missed most about Alberta, visiting over coffee with family and friends. Left behind to miss her, husband of 54 years, Frank, son’s Scott (Kelly), Neil (Patricia) most special grandson Nicolas, grandchildren Jikel (Rodney), Levi (Emily), Jazmin (Theo), great grandchildren, Connor, Coral and Airlie. Nieces and nephews, Ellen, Dale, Debbie, Maureen, Heather, Marilyn, Rodney, Pam, Debbie, Annetta, John and Margo. Along with many friends old and new. A service will be held on Tuesday January 14th at Cordova Bay United Church 813 Claremont Ave, Victoria at 2:30 pm. The Rev. Bill Cantelon officiating.

Flowers greatly appreciated or donations, if desired to Sooke Hospice or the United Church.

TICKNER, Edward CharlesMay 3, 1924 - December 29, 2013

Ted formerly of Sooke, B.C., died peacefully at Aberdeen Hospital, Lansdowne Unit with his children by his side. Predeceased by his wife Rene in 1997, Ted leaves to mourn his daughter Lynda (Jim) Gibson of Victoria, his son David (Linda) Tickner of Calgary and his three grandsons Brad, Ryan and Dylan all of Calgary. Ted is also survived by his sister Dorothy Adams of Sussex, England. No service by Ted’s request.

Pilar and Leonardo Maekawa have their eye on the Winter Olympics. Not for this round in Russia, but for the 2018 games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, between 9 and 25 February 2018.

The sibling skat-ers did try to get in for this year’s games. After competing at the 2013 BC/YK Summer-Skate, held in Burnaby this past August — where they won a sil-ver medal — they com-

peted in the US Classic held in Salt Lake City. From there, they went to Germany to com-pete at the Nebelhorn Trophy in late Septem-ber. This event could have qualified them for this year’s Winter

Olympics. According to their mother, Conchita Maekawa, “Because they just started to be noticed at this level, with less than a year at the Senior level, [it] was going to be very difficult to qualify, but

they did give a great impression and were told that [the] next Olympics will be their time.”

Pilar and Leonardo

have trained alongside Canadian and Olym-pic champions, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. The sibling pair have worked with coach

Marina Zueva, who also coached Virtue and Moir (2010 Olympic Ice Dance Gold medal-ists, Canada), as well as Meryl Davis and Charlie White (2010 Olympic Ice Dance Sil-ver Medalists, US). Cur-rently, they are training in at the Racquet Club of Victoria with Coach Matt Willis. Sooke is their home base.

“They decided to train and try for the 2018 Olympics,” sums up Conchita, “and that will be the last try. For now, they are happy and training hard, for the second time in a row, they qualify for the prestigious compe-tition [ISU] Four Conti-nents that will be held in Taipei on January 20-25. Pilar and Leon-ardo are the only ones from Vancouver Island ever to qualify for this important competition and they have done now twice.”

This talented sibling pair were both born in Mexico City (Pilar born August, 1994, and Leonardo born August, 1992) and are currently living in Sooke.

To follow the ongo-ing skating adventures of this dancing sibling due, you can follow their Facebook page at facebook.com/Pilar-LeonardoMaekawa

Sooke may still make an appearance in the Winter Olympics, but not until 2018

Beer. It’s not just for couch athletes any-more. Pacific Western Brewing (PWB) Com-pany Ltd., the maker of Cariboo, Pacific, and several other beer bev-erages, is on the prowl for Hometown Heroes. Selected heroes will receive financial aid through a bursary to help them pursue their passion.

These Heroes can be self nominated (don’t be shy!), or if you know and admire a fellow ath-lete in Sooke, you can put their name forward.

Pacific Western Brewing (PWB), Official Sponsor of the 2015

Canada Winter Games, has begun the first of four BC-wide searches for Hometown Heroes.

Kazuko Komatsu, owner and CEO of PWB, said: “We are honoured to support the goals of the 2015 Canada Win-ter Games by identify-ing and supporting ath-letes and community leaders and mentors who have shown the potential to become Canada’s future ambas-sadors.”

Starting New Year’s Day and continuing until Jan. 31st, PWB is accepting applica-tions in the first of four search rounds. Rounds two, three and four will begin April 1, Sept. 1, 2014 and Jan 1, 2015. In each round of the search a Home-town Hero will be selected from each of four regions – Northern BC, Greater Vancouver, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan/Koote-nays.

“At least 16 heroes will be selected from all regions of B.C. in four rounds leading up to the Games in Febru-ary 2015,” Ms. Komatsu said. “Our heroes will be receiving bursaries representing a por-tion of PWB proceeds from the sale of our fine products. We started

this program in 2002 and we have supported many young athletes and other community heroes whose extraor-dinary endeavours inspire us all.”

Application to the Hometown Heroes pro-gram is open to any B.C. resident currently engaged in sports as

an athlete or coach, or otherwise excelling in a community mentor-ing activity. Applicants must be at least 19 years old. Candidates

will demonstrate out-standing sportsman-ship; proven interest, ability and passion in the pursuit  of their sport; a dedication to their learning with a strong track record of academic success; and, a well-rounded lifestyle including com-munity involvement. Two letters of recom-mendation by a non-relative also need to be included.

Applications can now submitted directly on their website, http://www.pwbrewing.net/call-to-athletes/

And when you sub-mit your hometown hero to their website, remember to also send the information to the Sooke News Mirror.

According to their website (pwbrewing.net), they are “Canada’s longest running, Brit-ish Columbian-owned brewery … established in 1957 on a fresh water spring in Prince George, BC.”

And as for the few couch athletes out there, yes, there is a way you too can par-ticipate: the amount of each bursary depends on regional beer sales. Everything in modera-tion, of course.

Is Sooke home to “Hometown Heroes”?File photos

Sooke is loaded with hometown heros some of whom are pictured here.

If you know of one — or if you yourself are one — consider submitting an application with the Pacific Western Brewing Company’s Hometown Heroes event.

And while you are at it, remember to notify your friendly neighbourhood newspaper reporter. Whether or not some out-of-town competition lists you as a finalist, we will celebrate your successes here at the Sooke News Mirror.

Please (also) send y o u r H o m e t o w n Hero submissions to Britt Santowski at: [email protected], and if you can, include a photo.

Sooke Peewee hockey takes gold

On the weekend of January 3 to 5, Sooke’s Peewees partici-pated in the Comox Tier 2 Christ-mas Tournament. The Sooke Peewee A team won three out of four games in a round robin tournament, which earned them a bye into the final game.

In this final game, the Sooke Peewees faced off against the Oceanside Peewee team for the second time in the tournament. By the end of the third period, the game was tied, 3 all.

Going into overtime, the Sooke team took some penalties and spent most of the overtime period short handed.

The dead heat continued: there were no goals scored in the overtime period so the game advanced to a shoot out. Sooke goalie Nick Haisel was outstand-ing in net and met each Oceans-ide player with calm focus despite the fans of both teams going crazy in the stands.

The intensity continued. After

seven rounds of shoot out, there was still no winning goal.

Finally, Sooke defence man Craig Phipps managed to squeeze one past the Oceanside goalie resulting in a gold medal win for the Sooke team.

The boys fought hard for the win, wanting to earn gold med-als for their teammate Brayden Friesen who was celebrating his 13th birthday.

Happy birthday Brayden, and a great, hard-fought victory for the entire Sooke Peewee A team.

It was a beautiful seven-degree day with calm seas for anglers to take in a community traditional Boxing Day fishing derby.

With 48 fish weighed in, top place winner

weighing in a winter spring salmon at 15.25 pounds was Dave Homer.

The grand cash prize awarded for this win-ning catch was $1,380. Additional winning prizes were awarded

from a list of local gen-erous sponsors.

Received from derby anglers were phe-nomenal donations of spring salmon, total combined weight aprox 200 pounds as well as

cash proceeds near-ing $900.00, from an auctioned case of bait. A portion of derby entry ticket sales were donated to the Sooke Food Bank.
