A brief look through some of the stories that made the news in years past.

July 15, 2009Porta-potty may

have to exit Sk8 parkIt seems there is no

publicly accessible amenity that can be put in place that cannot, or will not, eventually be vandalized.

In the case of the Sooke Skate Park on Throup Road, a por-table washroom added for the convenience of park users has been repeatedly mistreated to the point where its removal has to be con-sidered. Alternatives could be left to the imagination of park users.

The issue falls under the umbrella of SEAPARC, and manager Larry Hutchings says he had heard from the commission that the porta-potty may be on the way to removal.

As is most often the case, it seems the majority of park users will possibly suffer for the actions of a few.

July 14, 2004Mayor, welfare

advocate concerned about needy

The cost-saving deci-sion to close Sooke’s welfare office in 2002, then two years later shut the nearest cen-tre in Langford, hasn’t been as seamless as government officials predicted.

The March closing of the Ministry of Human Resources office on Goldstream Ave. has forced clients from Port Renfrew to East Sooke to travel to four differ-

ent Victoria offices, depending on their cat-egory (income assis-tance, single parents, disability, and persis-tent multiple barriers).

At the time, a minis-try spokesperson said most clients’ business can be done over the phone.

But the ding-a-ling isn’t foolproof.

“There has been a few concerns with people falling through the cracks,” said Sooke Mayor Janet Evans.” Some are getting very frustrated.”

Evans knows of peo-ple who have had to take time off work to go downtown for an appointment with their worker.

July 14, 1999Sooke landmark up

in smokeThe fire that gutted

the landmark Milne’s Landing Store Friday was the second grease fire to break out in the hamburger stand’s kitchen area in recent months.

Milne’s Landing staff

and Sooke volunteer firefighters were able to quickly extinguish an April 11 fire which broke out in one of the popular fast food out-let’s deep fryers, but could do little to con-tain Friday’s blaze.

Sooke fire depart-ment Captain Steve Sorensen said the two fires were unrelated.

This fire quickly spread to the rest of the 56-year old struc-ture, which is home to a convenience store, fast-food outlet and gift store.

July 13, 1994It started as a big

community picnicOn July 25, 1934, the

people of Sooke gave birth to one of the most enduring community events of its kind.

It was billed a cele-bration of Sooke prog-ress and a commemo-ration of the 70 anniver-sary of the discovery of gold in the Sooke River.

Volunteers were recruited to construct booths and picnic tables.

The event was so successful it began bringing in people from all over, and soon the tiny-but-growing log-ging and fishing com-munity of Sooke was attracting crowds of 10,000 to 12,000.

Like the Scottish broom, the event took root and never let go. Very quickly, it was All Sooke Day. It was the logger sports that captured everybody’s attention.

FACT: Funds from the first All Sooke Days build the Sooke Com-munity Hall, the best-used building in Sooke, back in 1937.

July 12, 1989Whale of a jobIt’s been a whale of a

job, but it’s finally over.

The 35-foot grey whale that washed up on the beach near Beechey Head has been returned to the deep — 40 feet deep under the waters of the Sooke Basin, near Goodridge Island, to have its bones picked clean by underwater creatures over the next 12 months.

Edward Milne com-munity school coordi-nator Phoebe Dunbar, who masterminded the whole whale salvage operation, said she was “really relieved” when the rotting body of the giant whale sank beneath the waves for the last time. “It’s been quite a job,” she said.

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

Taking the leap from hobby to a full fledged business is often a scary step. It means your passion has to be combined with com-mitment. For Hillary Childs, the steps ahead have been a bit anx-ious, but she took the path anyway.

Childs is the owner of Huckleberry Hill, and she makes hand-crafted soap and body care products.

She said she has been making soap for about 15 years. She did it with her mother in the Van-couver area and back then she made soap for family and friends, as gifts, and for herself mostly. She wanted natural products which weren’t full of chemi-cals and harsh ingredi-ents. She took a herbal-ist course and experi-mented with essential oils, herbs and natural ingredients.

“It’s constant experi-menting, trial and error for a lot of stuff,” she said. “I always used a natural deodorant and was trying to find one that worked after a run at lunch, most didn’t work.”

So she started mak-ing her own natural deodorant with sweet orange and geranium, and the response has been positive. Other products are made with as many local products as she can find. She believes in fair trade products, no GMOs and sourcing locally. Some things she just can’t get locally.

“We don’t grow almonds or olives.”

In the name of recy-cling and reusing she willing to take back her containers to have them refilled with prod-uct.

Doing research on

natural ingredients, she has found that pomegranate is good for aging skin; red rasp-berry seed oil for sun protection, calendula has healing properties and shea butter is a anti-inflammatory. Add to that the new wonder product coconut oil and you have the ingre-dients Childs prefers to use.

Courses, workshops, research and experi-menting provided her with the knowledge and the rest comes from her own passion.

She lives with her fam-ily on 11 acres off Otter Point Place and has plans for growing many of her own herbs and setting up a permanent work space. With two children and a husband who works at Jordan River, Childs has to make time for her own work. She committed to the Saturday Coun-try Market as well as the Night Market at the museum for the entire season. That’s big for her.

“I’m just trying to keep up, I’m blown away by putting myself out there.”

She is enjoying the markets and the inter-action with people.

“I believe in getting out in your community, focussing on them and getting feedback,” she said.

It’s a big transition from something you do every few weeks to being ahead of the game, she said. She is taking it seriously.

“I hope what I make is going to sll. It’s a change from on demand to really hav-ing to predict and have inventory.”

Childs carries some of her products at Inspire on Eustace Road and at the weekly markets.

Presently it is a small home-based business and Childs is happy with that — for now.

“I don’t want to end up too too big. I still would like to work from home and move more into online sales,” she said.

“I love doing this stuff, experimenting and creating. It’s really fun to do.”

The Saturday Coun-try Market runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the junction of Eustace and Otter Point Roads. The Night Market runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Sooke Region Museum on Phillips Road.

SOOKE NEWS MIRROR - Wednesday, July 9, 2014 www.sookenewsmirror.com • 5

We have been making a number of changes to our museum includ-ing renovating older exhibits and adding new ones. This January saw one of our biggest renovations yet with the expansion of seven exhibits and the addi-tion of three. The idea to renovate our displays began with wanting to refresh our indoor and outdoor Leech-town exhibits as this is the 150th year since the gold rush. Since we were moving the location of the indoor exhibit we decided to go ahead and renovate the displays surround-ing it and add a few more. This week we will be talking about the expansion of our mining and Leechtown exhibits, which were given complete over-hauls including new text, pictures, artifacts and the creation of life-like scenes.

The mining exhibit features artifacts such as rock samples, tools and headgear and the related history focuses on activity in East Sooke, Jordan River and Valentine Mountain. An exciting addition to the mining display is the very realistic mine

shaft. Approximately 10 sheets of foam were glued together and carved out using an electric knife. Then the structure was covered with a dry wall com-pound in order to give the paint something to adhere to and provide texture. The mine shaft has proven to be a huge

hit among visitors, especially children. The rocks used for the ground of the display were re-purposed from our West Coast Trail exhibit, which will be updated in early 2015.

Next down the line is the Leechtown display. All of the artifacts in this exhibit were found

near or at Leechtown including a claim stake, clay tobacco pipe, gun-powder flask, cutlery and various tools. On display are numer-ous photos, including one showing Lieuten-ant Peter John Leech’s grave at Ross Bay Cem-etery. Lt. Leech was the second in command of the Vancouver Island Exploratory Expedi-tion and his crew dis-covered placer gold in July 1864 about 12 miles from Sooke in an unnamed tributary, subsequently named the Leech River. The discovery of gold was the beginning of the gold rush in this region.

The lifelike river com-ponent in the Leech-town exhibit was also created by gluing foam together and carving it out. It was painted to mimic the emerald green colours of the Leech River. We also painted small rocks to represent placer gold, but if you look closely you will find real gold panned from the Leech River (remember, we sell Leech River gold in our gift shop).

On display outside we have parts of the original Leechtown memorial cairn that

was destroyed by van-dals. In the same loca-tion, we have a time capsule containing a collection of docu-ments that were buried in the summer of 1987 and will be opened in 2037 and again in 2087. We took down the old worn out signs and added a 5’ x 5’ alumi-num weather proof sign that explains the Time Capsule and gold rush in detail.

On Saturday, July 19, from 12-4 p.m., we are hosting an event com-memorating the 150th anniversary of the Leech-town gold rush. The event is sponsored by Spinnakers Brewpub and you can expect an after-noon of fun including games and music. The Sooke Harbour Players will also be performing theatre skits. One of the biggest draws of the day will be the roasting of tra-ditional Leechtown beef in a pit dug up on the museum grounds.

SEAPARC will have the best ice ever now that a new dehumidifier has been installed at the arena. For years the facility has been dealing with moisture issues which result in more maintenance.

The Model A-20 Dessicant dehu-midifier will remove 125 pounds of moisture an hour compared to the 25 pounds being removed by the old unit.

Jim Govan, facilities operations supervisor at SEAPARC, said they

have always had humidity problems in the arena and, after 37 years, the problem will be solved. The unit will also allow treated outside air to be brought into the arena.

“In September sometimes there’s a little fog bank in there,” said JdF Regional Director Mike Hicks. “In the future it could mean leaving the ice in there longer.”

The unit was manufactured in Texas and with some successful negotiations they were able to get a 25 per cent discount amounting to close to $20,000. The unit cost $120,000 which came from SEAPARC funds.

Jenna Stewart won $75 from the Royal Canadian Branch #54 for her essay on The Lure of Gold.

Gold Rush Memories

We have been using gold for over 800 years, for all sorts of things. Gold has been used for many things because it is so soft and easy to work with. Gold is a substance that can-not be corroded or destroyed in any way. If you found a ship that sunk 100’s of years ago, the gold that was on

that ship would still be in perfect condition. Another reason gold is so valuable, is because there is not very much of it around the world. There has been a race to get the metal for hun-dreds of years.

Over the centuries, gold has both built and destroyed civili-zations. Ghana was once one of the big-gest empires on earth because of its riches in gold. The Macuna Indi-ans found gold in their fields. When word go out, over 25,000 miners came and took all the

gold and ruined their land. They actually forced the indians to work and mine the gold for them. The Spanish where also very keen on getting gold. They took the Aztec king hostage, conquered the Aztecs, took their gold, and that of the Incas as well. Gold is very beau-tiful, but it is also a key to greed.

Leechtown now, is nothing but some old cement house founda-tions, but in 1864, it was much more than that. In July of 1864, an expedition party was

formed and was sent out to look at what is now Leechtown. While there, they discovered gold in the Sooke river. In just a few weeks, thousands of miners came for all over the island to get the gold. In August of the same year, over 227 mining licenses has been given to miners. By Decem-ber, the town had already started to form and was named after Lieutenant Peter John Leech. There where 6 general stores, 3 hotels, and over 30 saloons. Leechtown had roughly

600 mines and 2,000 people, and later they started in the logging business. Man’s desire for gold of Leechtown, lead to a clearing of gold rush memories.

Jenna StewartGrade 6

The Lure of Gold essays are a lead-up to the 150th Leechtown Anniversary celebra-tion being held at the Sooke Region Museum on July 19. The Vancou-ver Island Placer Min-ers’ Association will

present a new monu-ment to replace the original cairn erected in 1928 in Leechtown. The monument provided a catalyst of economic boom on Vancouver Island.

50th50thToday Suzanne and I celebrate a life of outdoor adventures which has shape-shi� ed through a half century. A life of companionship including rambles through mountains, glaciers, alpine meadows, solitary sea kayak adventures, (sometimes just us, and other times leading expeditions), photo safaris in Africa, a recent decade of hiking and studying � ora and fauna of the desert landscape of Joshua Tree and daily strolls on the Sooke Spit with our dog Banjo.

We are also thankful to have been able to share all these times and much more with our two wonderful sons and their adorable families. Life has been good to all of us!

Craven - 50th“Still crazy a� er all these years”

Page 7: Sooke News Mirror, July 09, 2014

Today as you drive up Phillips Road and view the lovely Sun River Community Gar-den, on your right nearer the river you might observe fruit trees from a long ago abundant orchard.

This 1922 wedding day photo shows the fruit trees in their prime, framing the bride and groom, alongside the Phillips farmhouse. It’s hard to imagine it’s almost one hundred years since the dapper Rueben Acreman won his bride, Jessie, young-est daughter of the pio-neer Phillips family.

It was 1868 that Wil-liam Phillips arrived on our shores (some say he’d been on a Royal Navy vessel) and went to work for the Muirs in their lumbering enter-prise. He took up a section of land border-ing the Sooke River on the west, but probably lived a lonely life until the Milne family emi-grated to the east side of the river. When he met Edward Milne’s sis-ter Janet, he was quick to propose marriage in 1885, and the couple raised six children on the Phillips farm.

The hardworking pio-neering couple planted a large garden for sub-sistence and a number of fruit trees that have continued to give fruit for well over a century. (Nowadays the bears seem to be first in line to harvest the apples.) Their children were John, Edward, Susan-

nah, Eliza, William and Jessie. The sons fol-lowed their father in developing an exten-sive logging enterprise.

Meanwhile, in the early 1900s the Benja-min Acreman family from Newfoundland arrived in the village with their seven tall stalwart sons. Sec-ond youngest of these boys was Rueben, who soon got a job in the fishtraps industry that operated out of Sooke Harbour.

Perhaps he was par-

ticularly charming, to win the heart of such a shy, demure young girl as Jessie Phillips. Hardworking as they were, the Philips sons and daughters had a reputation for being quiet-natured. While Jessie was the only one to marry, there was no issue at all from the Phillips fam-ily, and today it is only the road, logging equip-ment at the museum, and the orchard of trees that carries their heritage forward.

By the 1960s after the fishtraps’ closing, Rueben was employed as custodian at Sasee-nos School, where he enjoyed seeing the chil-dren. When he passed, he left a gift of books for the school’s library.

Taxes and the need for them

Complaining about property taxes is as old as the hills around Sooke. No one likes to pay taxes of any kind, but in order to maintain everything we have come to expect, we have to pay for it. Since the municipality doesn’t earn money on its own, then it is the residents and businesses who pay. Pretty simple basic fact.

Commercial enterprises do pay a lot more tax, that is a fact. Is it fair? Probably not. If there was more of a commercial base in Sooke, then there is the chance taxes would go down for all. Of course we could use more businesses in the town core, but because we are a bedroom community this is unlikely on a larger level. Yes, we can supply the basics, but people being as they are will still drive to “town” to shop. They just think they’ll find bargains and more selection.

To lower the taxes on commercial would mean that to maintain the same budget then the residents would have to pay more. Can the district cut their expenses? Probably somewhat, but what would you want to do without? Fire and police protection? Staff? Community grants? Library? Yes taxes have gone up, but so have the services, road improvements, obligations and expenses.

It is easy to complain but when you want things to happen in your community then you have to be prepared to pay for it. The huge rallying cry in elections is often taxes and while some may want to change the rates, it is not as easy as all that. It’s a complicated business and that’s why we have financial officers who can put the dollars in the right columns.

People want their property values to remain high in case they want to sell and they want them low when the tax bill comes in. You can’t have it both ways.

Like the old saying by Benjamin Franklin goes, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.”

FEATURE LETTER

 I was flabbergasted to see in this week’s Sooke News Mirror that there are people who think that the con-struction of the new connector road is a good idea. I understand (sorta) that council approved this $2-mil-lion road from nowhere to nowhere because of an entrenched notion that building a by-pass road is good for Sooke and is supported by Sooke residents. All of the long-time Sooke residents I’ve spoken to over the past few years have told me that the Throup/Grant Connector (which this new piece is just the middle por-tion of) is a really stupid idea that was rejected by residents in a refer-endum a number of years ago. Not once in recent public survey’s and community meetings has this proj-ect been identified as a community priority.

Despite the distinct lack of pub-lic support for this project, council has supported it – why? This coun-cil, and several before them, have been told so many times that this project is absolutely necessary for the proper functioning of traffic, and that, once completed, so many (undefined) benefits will miracu-lously spring forward from it that to question it would be foolish, if not irresponsible. In my years of working closely with Vancouver’s City Coun-

cil, I did notice the odd time when they seemed to go into some kind of trance and support something that was just too expensive and compli-cated to warrant a serious second look.  I can only assume that’s what happened here. Odd behaviour for a council that prides itself on keeping  tax increases super low. Just imag-ine how different Sooke could be if the millions allocated for this proj-ect went to capital improvements that the public actually wanted and supported.

One thing council and staff are very clear about is that the new connector is just the first stage of a connector road that will join up with Grant Road at one end, and Throup all the way to Phillips at the other. The intention is to divert traf-fic away from Sooke Road and West Coast Road. Put another way, the idea is to move traffic away from a highway with commercial proper-ties located along a good portion of it onto quiet residential streets. When asked the question at a pub-lic meeting, the engineer responsi-ble for the design of the section of the connector being built right now was quite clear that this road was designed to handle large vehicles, including logging trucks.

So, while the residents further

along West Coast Road are continu-ing to complain about the number of logging trucks and their hours of operation, the solution in Sooke is to move them away from the highway onto quiet neighbourhood streets. As one person commented, this con-nector will make it easier for Otter Point residents to get home. Now I’m generally a generous guy, but I really don’t appreciate several millions of our tax dollars going towards road improvements that will only benefit residents in neighbouring communi-ties.

Not sure what to do about this mess. We could try to convince the new council to not complete the con-nections to Grant and Throup. That would leave us with this expensive piece of connector road in the mid-dle that I’m sure will be appreciated only by residents on Townsend. Or we could simply advise the property owners along the connector route to sell now, before it becomes appar-ent to prospective buyers that they could be moving onto a relocated highway.

Mayor’s integrity evident

I was pleased to note your positive com-ments about our Mayor Wendal Milne in your recent editorial and I concur with them. 

I remember meeting Wendal on my doorstep in 2011 when he was canvassing for the job and being impressed by his straight talk and evident integrity and decided that he would have my support.

The current council have done well since December 2011 in tackling the problems inherited from the pre-vious council and for putting, among other things, our finances back under control and  dealing successfully with difficult and divi-sive issues such as the proposed bike park. 

The initial year of office must have been difficult but per-severance and com-mitment have paid off and I believe that this achieved a more accountable council to the benefit of us all. 

Always approach-able and pleasant, Wen-dal has exhibited his leadership qualities and dedication with-out any evident prima-donna tendencies and has served our commu-nity well with his good old fashioned “com-mon sense” approach to issues.  I regret that he is not standing again for the new four-year term but understand his personal reasons

for this decision.  Thank you Mayor

Wendal for your ster-ling service in serving our community.

Cause for concern

Last week the RCMP visited a number of res-idents along Sunriver Way.

The officer was mak-ing inquires to help in their investigation into an incident where an uphill access road at the end of Sunriver Way had spikes driven into the road bed with the sharp ends up so as to cause the trucks tires to blow out.

There has been a long running conflict with numerous neigh-bours and a backhoe service and the Sun-river development as to noise, dust and other safety issues as they move thousands of truckloads of earth through the subdivi-sion.

I hope the individual who did this reads this letter and seeks out other, legal ways to resolve their issue with the developer.

PBS in jeopardy

The Harper govern-ment is doing every-thing it can to deny

Canadians very basic access to information about current events through its massive funding cuts to the CBC, whose mandate belongs to the Cana-dian people, not a par-ticular government and its (right-wing) ideolo-gies.

Now it appears, Harper is acting via the CRTC to make it more difficult, if not outright prevent, Canadians from viewing programs on PBS.   

The CRTC is propos-ing to eliminate inclu-sion of PBS stations in basic cable/satellite packages; the result may be the only way to receive PBS is by pay-ing an extra fee.

In my experience, both PBS Seattle, and PBS Detroit, which we receive via Shaw Satel-lite, go out of their way to include Canadians and Canadian content as much as possible.  

PBS Seattle even has an office in Vancouver, the Pacific Coast Pub-lic Television Associa-tion.   Most Canadians live near the border with the U.S.A.

PBS programming, while it emphasizes American content, which is understand-able, has a great deal of programs from all over the world.  Viewers not only enjoy the “Master-piece” dramas, which are from the UK, but programs about nature, science, art, music, current events, kids’ shows (many are made

in Canada) and so on.Many Canadians do

not live near major cit-ies where live perfor-mances of ballet, opera, rock, jazz, plays, etc., are available or even affordable, so televi-sion provides the next best thing.  PBS plays a major role in enriching our lives through such programs.

Listeners of National Public Radio in Wash-ington State know that the local radio stations there include Victoria when they list the cit-ies they serve.   They participate in the Victo-ria and Vancouver Jazz Festivals. Luckily, radio waves aren’t being blocked.

It is my hope that everyone who reads this, and enjoys PBS, will contact their MLA, and MP, and the rel-evant Ministers and Opposition MLAs and MPs, and the CRTC, in support of keeping PBS part of Canadian basic cable and satel-lite channels.

Stealing flag an act of disrespect

While driving by our Legion here in Sooke, I saw that our Canadian flag was gone. I stopped to go in to the Legion to see why it was down. This, on the day after

Canada Day. I was told somebody was on the roof and cut the flag away with a knife.

I would like to say those who were respon-sible for this degrading act have no regard for Canada or those who died over the years, serving our country in different wars. Our Legion represents the many who paid for your freedom, mainly through donations paid for by many activities held in the Legion, such as meat draw, many dinners, etc.

I can only hope some time in the future you may look back at what you and your buddies have done. For what??

Park should not be for small group

I applaud the two writers of last week’s

We asked: What do you think of the recent announcement to increase speed limits in B.C?

I support it. I’m used to faster highways, coming from Ontario.

On the road to Sooke it make sense to have it slower though.

Brandon WarrenerVictoria

I like it. I’m a fast driver, with places to go.

Kyle PollnerSooke

I think some of the areas they picked, like the highway up to Campbell River, make sense.

That's a good place to increase the speed limit.

Esme GardSooke

On straighter roads it makes sense. It also makes sense to

enforce the staying-right-except-to-pass rule.

letters addressing the outstanding issues of amenities for John Phil-lips Memorial Park and the fact that members of council are even considering spending money on a special interest group of six members for a horse-shoe club designating one acre with parking and washroom.    

Nine months ago a decision was made to retain the park as a park for passive enjoyment versus altering the landscape to accom-modate tracks and dirt jumps for bikes. The bike club got what they wanted but not in that location. Now the horseshoe club wants civic dollars for their activity. I can only imagine the response of youth of Sooke when they heard of this.

It was hoped that council would see fit to direct funds from the $100,000 park fund toward making JPMP more of a destination by introducing basic park comforts. Since the horseshoe pitch players are first out of the gate to approach council, it may be stra-tegic as an election is a

few months away and one member of the club was a previous council member.

Current council may be in a caution-ary frame of mind or a pleasing one, given the short term memory of the voting public. But the bottom line is the horseshoe pitch is portable and does not meet the basic needs of park goers. They cannot reject one loca-tion ie: Sooke flats and prefer one requiring public monies. Sooke residents and tourists would appreciate some

practical amenities such as a bench or two, signs, a sun shelter and a washroom.  

The issue was raised about some people requesting a   desig-nated dog area in the park. Dog designated areas without fences could be in parks where baseball and other activities occur on a seasonal basis. Provide pick up bags and garbage bins with the expectation that the humans are capa-ble to supervise for safety. Lighting comes from many choices like

lighting up your dog and yourself.  

So, before a new council and mayor get involved with the seem-ingly necessary dance and delays in deci-sion making, there is $100,000 waiting to be put to good use which would enhance the options for enjoyment of central Sooke’s most amazing gem during these warm months.

Due process waylaid

Council just keeps defeating it’s own bylaws. First it is the sign bylaw and now the zoning bylaw. SDL has been looking for a place for a transfer sta-tion for well over a year now. They have con-tacted council and staff and have been work-ing diligently to find a home for their transfer station. Another trans-fer station has opened, operating illegally as the property is not zoned for this type of use.

The normal proce-dure is, the landowner applies to council for a zoning change, there is a public hearing and with public input the council then decides if the use is appropri-ate in this area and if it fits the Official Com-munity Plan. This has not been done. Instead of the landowner incur-ring the costs of a zon-ing change, we, the taxpayer, are paying to have, not just this prop-erty, but 11 other prop-erties, which are M2 zoned, to be allowed to have garbage, trans-fer stations. This zone says, in particular, “no garbage” transfer sta-tion.

When there is an application for such a use, there are certain requirements as well, which include, paved sites, drainage, closed storage, etc. to mitigate the smells and vermin. None of this will hap-pen as due process is not being followed.

The mayor and Coun-cillor Tait opposed this action but are out-weighed but the other council members. The meeting is on July 14 and if others, like myself oppose this misuse of authority I encourage you to read the staff report (well done) and support the mayor and Tait on this.

Horseshoe pitch an asset

I have to disagree with the letter in last week’s Sooke News Mir-ror.

I believe a park is set aside for all residents to enjoy. This park is big enough that you could have a children’s play area, a tennis court, trails, a dog area, picnic tables, a bike area and yes, horseshoe pitches if that is what the com-munity wants.

Horseshoe pitching is currently under con-

troversy as was the children’s bike park. I think the readers need to hear the facts before making a decision.

You say there are only six members to the horseshoe club and why should the park be set aside for six people? I beg to differ. The rea-son there are only six members is that they don’t have a park to throw shoes. This is a sport that is open to everyone, and all ages.

The Greater Victo-ria Horseshoe club has juniors right up to seniors and people play year round. They com-pete in tournaments in B.C., Canada, and the world. The members keep the grass cut, clean the washrooms,

rake the pits and keep the area clean and tidy, so no cost to the Saan-ich taxpayer.

This is a sport just like baseball, hockey, swimming etc. How many years was the swimming pool, hockey rink debated and voted down before finally the centre was built?

As a former member of the Victoria Horse-shoe club, I visited many of the horseshoe clubs throughout the province, and every one of them was built in a neighbourhood park. I think having the horseshoe pits avail-able to the community and our seniors would be an asset.

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

The Philly Fling is a beautiful summer musi-cal extravaganza where professional and semi-professional musicians make Sooke Harbour echo with classical music. Staged at Ed Macgregor Park, the Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra presents an afternoon of joyful music in the open air.

For the past 16 years, the SPO has been led by Maestro Norman Nel-son and whether they perform in a concert hall or an amphitheater, Nelson conducts his musicians with aplomb and passion.

The Philharmonic Fling presents Pops in the Park on Sunday, June 13.

This year’s special guest and emcee is Sooke native Marion Newman. Newman is a mezzo soprano who has performed around the world. Her exten-sive repertoire includes Handel’s Messiah, De Falla’s El Amor Brujo, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle, Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Davidde Penitente, Cop-land’s In The Beginning, Bach’s St. John Passion, Magnificat, and Cantata No. 4.

Newman has also demonstrated her “lus-cious mezzo soprano voice and captivating vivacity” on television, having been featured five times as a solo-ist on CBC’s National Aboriginal Achieve-ment Awards, and opening the 2002 Royal Golden Jubilee Gala at Roy Thomson Hall, where she performed the National Anthem with the Toronto Sym-phony Orchestra and the Toronto Mendels-sohn Choir before Her Majesty Queen Eliza-beth II.

Another feature is a young man who will entertain the multitude at intermission with some magic from his repertoire of tricks.

A world premiere is being performed, writ-ten by Adrian Dolan of The Bills. It’s a piece for two fiddlers and string orchestra.  The soloists are two young promi-nent violinists from Vic-toria, Ceilidh Briscoe and Sarah Tradewell.

As usual, concert attendees are asked to bring their own seating, either a lawn chair or a blanket. You can also

bring your own picnic and get there early (by 1 p.m.) to stake out your spot on the park lawn. The concert begins at 2:30 p.m. There will be food vendors on site as well as a 50/50 draw and a music quilt raffle.

If the rains threaten to dampen the spirits and the audience, the concert will be moved to the Sooke Commu-nity Hall on Sheilds Road. Ed Macgregor Park is located at 6751 West Coast Road. The

concert is a family affair and is free. For more information call 250-419-3569.

The program:Marion Newman,

Mezzo-Soprano soloist/Emcee

Smetana - Bartered Bride (Dance of the Comedians)

Dvorak - Slavonic dance Op.46 (No.1)

Rossini - Naqui all’affano (La Ceneren-tola) - Marion

Bear BuzzA hungry bear is

finding garbage and chicken coops on Maple Avenue irresist-ible and is damaging properties and fright-ening residents in this area.

Chicken coop raids by local black bears are on the rise, just as Sooke and area moves into its peak season for bear activity. We have had many chicken/bear-related incidents already this year. By the time we recognize our mistakes, it is often too late for the bear.

“Chickens are one of our biggest attractants, aside from garbage and bird seed, and it’s grow-ing because the num-ber of chickens is grow-ing,” says Debbie Read WildSafeBC coordina-tor for CRD Region.

Bear-proofing means keeping the chickens and their feed in a pro-tected place, where bears can’t get into and stringing up electric fences powerful enough to stop a bear from entering - electric fenc-ing keeps the chickens in and the bears out. Electric fences are inex-pensive and easy to set up. There are electric fences that can be set up and functional in less than two hours.

While electric fencing may sound harsh, it is better to deter the bears in the first place than have to deal with them once they’ve got a taste for whatever they’re finding on your prop-erty.  The shocks are not lethal, or even dam-aging, but provide for behaviour modification in the animal – which keeps you, your family, and your chickens safe.

Store feed securely in an air-tight con-tainer, either indoors or behind the electric fence. It is often the mis-handling of the grain, mash and other feed that initially attracts bears, rats and other animals.

Britt SantowskiSooke News Mirror

Have you heard of “open source” on the Internet?

Do you know what it means?

In a nutshell, open-source is the opposite of proprietary. Con-sider the sale of a muf-fin. The person who sells you the muffin is selling you a pro-prietary product. The ingredients (what they are and from whence they came) are kept a secret. With open source, the person not just gives you the muf-fin; she also gives you the recipe and invites you to change it even more, and pass it along to the next person.

Operating quietly in our midst is Internet developer Emma Irwin, herself an open-source advocate and educator.

Irwin passion-ately believes in open source. In an online essay, she once wrote, “‘Open’ is all about people, and I have met so many inspiring, cou-rageous, brilliant and humble people from all over the world – chang-ing the world.”

On a volunteer basis, Irwin gives her time to Mozilla Webmaker. This is an open source project that, according to their website (web-maker.org) “creates software, projects and events that promote web literacy through making and sharing.”

According to the About page on Web-maker.com, their goal is to encourage Internet users “to move beyond using the web to mak-ing it.” It has tools that can teach users how websites work (X-Ray Goggles), how to build your own web pages (Thimble) and how to create mashups (Pop-corn Maker).

Irwin is both a rep and a mentor with Web-maker.

Although Irwin is not currently teaching locally, she has in the past run a Webmaker Code Club for Grade 5 students in Sooke. “What I am missing right now is a class-room,” she noted, add-ing that computers and a functional lab space would be required. “I usually teach for free,” she said, adding that she is happy to give instruction to whoever shows up.

From her home in Sooke — often sur-

rounded by her three children Molly (10), Daisy (9) and Violet (3) — Irwin works for Bene-tech. According to their website, “Benetech is a nonprofit technology company that provides software tools and ser-vices to address press-ing social needs. Its four program areas are Global Literacy, Human Rights, Environment, and Benetech Labs.”

There are many types of open-source resources available online. MOOCs (mas-sive open online courses, which we wrote about earlier this year in the Sooke News Mirror) are one example. Wikipedia is another. Open Office a third. Mozilla (an open source browser). Word-press (open source website development). And the list goes on.

Irwin, a self-defined “annoying optimist,” believes in the power of paying it forward. Her family was the recipi-ent of tremendous support from Sooke residents when her middle daughter, Daisy, was undergoing cancer treatment.

Through open source technology using the Internet as a vehicle, Irwin strongly believes in the future. Yes, she acknowledges that there are issues sur-rounding privacy and safety on the Internet. But the potential future reaches far outweigh the hazards.

“I see open source solving major social issues like mobilizing (during) disasters, like putting the right tools in the hands of med-ics,” she speculated. Other issues that could be resolved using open source include literacy

and Internet education. The reach of the

Internet has not yet been fully realized, and it’s people like Irwin who will be a part of the online community persisting in a quest to keep it open and avail-able to all.

Other fellow web developers, program-

mers and enthusiasts who want to contrib-ute to keeping informa-tion on the Internet free and available can get involved through Bene-tech using their online form, at socialcoding-4good.org/volunteer-ing/volunteer

Irwin challenges oth-ers web developers

and technologists to contribute to the grow-ing movement of giving

forward. “Lending your skills

is a really meaningful

way to have impact,” she said.

Bylaw No. 598, Of� cial Community Plan Amendment Bylaw (400-6) The intent and purpose of Bylaw No. 598, Of� cial Community Plan Amendment Bylaw (400-6) is to:

• Amend the Of� cial Community Plan to strengthen policy statements in section 5.4 regarding a “West Coast” design theme that promotes Sooke’s natural beauty, cultural and maritime history for the area designated as the Sooke Town Centre in the Of� cial Community Plan;

• Amend the Of� cial Community Plan by rewriting Section 7.4 Development Permit Area (DPA) #1 – Town Centre to include more guidelines around architectural details, color, storefront design, building materials, signage and landscaping for the purpose of ensuring that building design is sympathetic in form and character to a “West Coast” design theme, and to revitalize the Town Centre by establishing a foundation for a unique identity to set Sooke apart from other destinations.

A Town Centre Illustrative Design Handbook has also been prepared for the purpose of re� ecting the development permit guidelines in Section 7.4 (DPA) #1 - Town Centre and to provide guidance on sidewalk color and texture, lighting standards, street furniture and street trees.

Commencing from July 2, 2014 to and including July 14th, 2014, copies of the proposed bylaw and relevant background documents may be:

• inspected at the District of Sooke Municipal Hall, 2205 Otter Point Road, Sooke, BC, between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm, Monday to Friday, except statutory holidays, or

Th e joy she gave is always with us.

Survived by her husband Kevan;her son Steeve (Tarasita) Dixon; grandchildren, Kip & Tamika;

and her sister, Jean Glazin.Predeceased by Finn Dixon

and her sister, Marlin.

Lila passed away peacefully at Victoria General Hospital, aft er celebrating her 95th birthday.She will be lovingly remembered by her family in Ontario and many friends left behind.

Lila had a wonderful sense of humour and always enjoyed a good joke. She loved animals and nature and was a huge supporter of the Canadian Wildlife and Hope for Wildlife. She also donated generously every year to the Children’s Variety Telethon, as well as many other charities.

Heartfelt thanks to the wonderful staff on 4-B South at VGH and also to the caring Community Health Workers from Beacon and the Home Care Nurses who have helped Lila for the past several years. She truly loved all of you.

When twilight draws the curtainand pins it with a star,

Remember that you have a friendalthough I roam afar.

Esquimalt-Saanich- Sooke to be new riding for 2015 Federal Elec-tion

During the year long process to draw new boundaries for the 2015 Federal Elec-tion, Randall Garrison (MP – Esquimalt Juan de Fuca) fought for a name change for the constituency that will

replace Esquimalt-Juan-de Fuca.

“I sought approval of the Federal Boundaries Commission to name the new Lower Island riding Esquimalt-Saa-nich-Sooke in order to better reflect its geog-raphy and thus make it easier for voters to know who represents them,” Garrison said.

The Commission did initially agree to add Saanich to the riding name, reflecting the fact that Saanich will make up over 50 per cent of

the new riding, but sug-gested dropping Esqui-malt and keeping Juan de Fuca. This forced Garrison to resort to two additional appeal processes. Finally, after last minute negoti-ations between all par-ties, Garrison secured the change to Esqui-malt-Saanich-Sooke in Bill C-37 which received royal assent on June 19. In addition to half the municipality of Saan-ich, the new riding also includes Esquimalt, View Royal, Colwood,

Metchosin, East Sooke, Sooke and the unorga-nized territory stretch-ing out to Jordan River.

“So now it is official. In 2015 the new riding will be called Esquimalt-Saanich-Sooke. This is a name that will make it easier for voters by identifying three cor-ners of the riding and by eliminating confu-sion with the provincial riding of Juan de Fuca which now lies largely outside the new riding,” Garrison said.

“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28), says Jesus.

Brothers and sisters in Christ, I will use this opportunity to introduce myself. I am the new priest at the Holy Trinity Church in Sooke. My name is Dimas Canjura. My wife’s name is Violeta. Together we have two grown children and three grandchildren. We originally came to Canada from El Salvador, Central America. We arrived to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan in May 1991. We then moved to Victoria a few years later in 1993. I went to Camosun College to take English second-language training, and later I achieved my Resident Care Attendant Certifi cate. I worked for the VIHA for fourteen years. More recently I became ordained. Today I am following the invitation that Jesus asks of every one of us. Today, I am inviting you to listen to Jesus’ message and to open your hearts to his call. Only in Jesus can we fi nd peace and rest for our troubled and overwhelmed souls, because the rest that Jesus offers cannot be found anywhere else in this world. Jesus turns no one away. He lovingly accepts everyone who wishes to fi nd peace for themselves and for those around them. Christ can give us the strength we need to face each day, and the hope we need to persevere. He is our comforter. He is our friend. Give him a call; he is waiting to hear from you.

QUICK, SAFE & MOST OF ALL FRIENDLY!

As June wrapped up, so did the Vancouver Island Wave U15 girls’ soccer team — with a wonderful win. For the first time in that team’s history, they both par-ticipated in the Provin-cial Premier Cup finals and, with a 1-0 final win over Surrey United, won it. In getting to the finals, the girls played the semi-finals against Mountain United and won with a 2-0 victory.

“The Provincial Pre-mier Cup is to the high-est Youth Provincial Cup in BC which ser-vices boys and girls from the under 13 age division to under 18,” states the bcsoccer.net website.

Sooke’s contribution to the Wave’s victory came through the tal-ented efforts of Kiana Swift. Kiana is a tal-ented and athletic Jour-ney middle school stu-dent who loves sports. She played competitive football at nine, and was on the team that won their champion-ship at aged 10. She was playing rugby until she tore her anterior cruci-ate ligament (ACL), and under doctor’s direc-tion, she moved away from rugby and got hooked on soccer.

“I’m a very competi-tive person,” she said. “My family is very com-petitive.” Kiana’s spirit

of competition has been nurtured by both her parents, Siuti and Martin Swift, as well as

by her siblings. She has two brothers and one sister.

Last year, Kiana

was one of 15 players selected to the Provin-cial Teams Program, phase one. While she didn’t make the cut for this year’s provincial team, she has aspira-tions to return.

In the meanwhile, she is still working to correct the damage to her ACL through exer-cises and a mainte-nance regime.

The teacher’s strike has inconvenienced Kiana in her athletic pursuits, but the soc-cer program she is involved with is outside of the school program. Though the soccer sea-son has ended with the Wave’s final big win, Kiana will be staying on her game through continued training four days a week as well as participating in the Highlander’s Academy Training camp. This is a scouting camp where players may be selected for a scholar-ship.

For the time being, this Grade 8 student is keeping her head in the game and her eyes on the ball. For practi-cal reasons, she will be attending Mount Doug-las next year (her soc-cer training is at UVic), and she will work hard to maintain her current straight-A academic record.

Some interesting soccer facts

Did you know...?The highest scoring soccer game ever played

was 149-0 in a 2002 game between rival teams Stade Olympique de L’emyrne, or SOE, and AS Adema of Madagascar.

American football and soccer are both derived from tugby.

A soccer player can run 10 kilometers on one game. Most of the running is done without the ball.

The Bra LadyIs Coming to Size You Up

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well you’re not alone. As you’ve probably seen on Oprah or read in women’s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra.

Here’s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in.

Chapman is coming to Sooke on tueS. July 22nd to outfit you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the benefits of good bras and measuring their bodies properly.

“Most women just want to find a good-fitting bra that’s not uncomfortable,” Chapman said. “What they don’t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.”

Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. It’s likely that you’ll fit somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves:• Do you have a drawer full of bras but none that fit comfortably?• Does your bust line “bounce” when you walk while wearing your

“everyday” bra?• Do you overflow the cup of your bra?• Do your bra straps slip off your shoulders or dig into your shoulders

leaving red and painful marks?• Does your bra ride up in the back because you tighten the straps to

give you added support?• Have you ever begun an exercise class only to drop out because your

breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running?If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.

you’ve tried all the reSt- now try the beSt

• no underwireS • no elaStic StrapS• no StrapS falling off ShoulderS

• no riding up in the back

You can sign up for Chapman’s bra clinic by calling

1-800-254-3938 by July 20th

She doesn’t come into town very often so she advises booking as soon as possible. She is on the look-out for someoone in this area to train for the business,

or purchase the business.

BaseballSooke Loggers place 2nd

The Sooke Loggers played at the Bob Law Memo-rial Challenge in Vancouver, a world-class fast pitch tournament, this past weekend. On Friday night they faced Fleetwood and came out ahead with a 5-2 win. Kristopher Walushka reported on their Facebook fan pages that Blake Hunter hit a grand slam home run.

On Saturday morning, the Loggers faced the Randy A’s and lost 4-0. Faced with a single knock-out playoff their evening game against New Zea-land was critical. Sooke stayed in the competition in that game, with a 7-2 win over New Zealand.

Next up, Sooke played the Lomas, and had a nar-row 9-8 win, getting the winning run in the bottom of the 11th inning. In the finals, the Loggers lost to the Giants, 7-0 in six innings, achieving a second overall placement.

“Score doesn’t reflect the game,” Kristopher Walushka reported on Facebook. “We hit the ball well and the Giants made some fantastic plays on defense.”

Walushka also adds that next weekend the Log-gers will be in Denmark, Wisconsin for the Boys of Summer Tournament.

Softball ProvincialsLocally, we also had several fast-pitch softball

teams going to Provincials championships on the weekend of July 4-6. The following information comes from the softball.bc.ca website. None of our teams placed in the top three, but the accom-plishments come from placing in the Provincials. Congratulations Sooke!

• Sooke Cyclones participated in the U18B Girls Provincial Championships, played in Abbotsford BC.

• Sooke’s U16 Boys participated in the Pro-vincial Championship played in Clearwater.

• Sooke Blue Crew played in the Provincials in Ridge Meadows. They placed fifth out of 16 teams.

HockeyTwo Sooke hockey players drafted into the NHL

Sooke Minor Hockey (sooke.goalline.ca) made a significant announcement this week. Two of its longtime members have been drafted into the NHL. Alec Dillon was drafted in the 5th round (150th overall) to the L.A. Kings. Dysin Mayo was drafted in the 5th round (133rd overall) to the Ari-zona Coyotes. Pictured below are photos of the two boys in their youth.

“First team I ever played on was with this guy,” tweeted Mayo on Twitter, referring to Dillon. With that, he posted the photo below.

The new hunting and trapping guide is out

The joint B.C. Min-istry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Black Press produced 2014-2016 Hunting & Trap-ping Regulations Syn-opsis, now available online and as a hard copy.

Printed every two years, the guide is an important reference for the more than 100,000 licensed hunters in the province to navigate the numerous regula-tion changes, of which there are more than 50 from the previous guide, and help hunters decipher open seasons and plan upcoming fall hunting trips.

Other information includes hunter edu-cation of the different game available in the province, no hunting or shooting areas and resource management of the eight regions in B.C. that make up one

of the most diverse hunting grounds in the west.

“The Fish and Wildlife Branch is committed to providing sustainable hunting opportunities for the province and encouraging people to go out there and enjoy the outdoors,” said government policy and regulations analyst Ste-phen MacIver. “B.C. has more big game species than any other jurisdic-tion in North America and provides some of the best hunting oppor-tunities in the world.”

The guide is effective July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2016 for the rising num-ber of local and tourist hunters setting their sights on the prized moose, elk, deer, sheep and goats that have helped buoy the num-ber of hunters from approximately 80,000 in 2003 to 100,000 today.

With more residents

taking the hunter safety training, MacIver proj-ects that number will continue to increase, making the need for the synopsis greater than ever.

Hard copies are avail-able at sporting good stores, and also in pdf format on every Black Press news site under the e editions and will be posted there for the two-year period.

The electronic ver-sion, which will con-tinue to be updated to reflect any in-season changes as they hap-pen, can be found at env.gov.bc.ca/fw/wild-life/hunting/regula-tions/ where you can even submit your pho-tographs to participate in the Cover Photo Con-test for an opportunity to see your finest hunt-ing experiences show-cased on the next syn-opsis.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20Be honest with your-

self, Aries. Sometimes change can be a good thing, so take a few days to sort through all of your options. You will be glad you did.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21Taurus, you may

have to be clever to solve a particular prob-lem this week. It will be challenging, but you are up to the task and your efforts will be their own reward.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21Gemini, spend some

time thinking about what you want rather than what others want for you. You may dis-cover significant differ-ences between the two, but do what makes you happy.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22Cancer, it may take

some time to get back on your feet after a stumble, but you will get there much faster if you ask a few friends for support. You know the people who have your back.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23Leo, very little can

disappoint you or affect your mood. Enjoy the responsibi l i ty- free week with a free spirit. This is a great time for a vacation.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22Think through all of

your options before you act, Virgo. While something may seem like a good idea at first, careful thought may reveal some bumps in the road.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23Work hard to earn

a promotion at work, Libra. While you may need to take on more responsibility and work longer hours, the pay-off will be well worth it.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22

Scorpio, if you feel you are at a crossroads, take your time to make the best possible deci-sion. This is a signifi-cant moment for you, and it requires focus and forethought.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21

Sagittarius, support-ing a family member who deserves it has you riding high this week. This support may be emotional in

nature or even financial support if you can man-age.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20

Capricorn, family activities are getting in the way of business prospects, and vice versa. You may need to make a difficult deci-sion in the near future.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18

Aquarius, think through the pros and cons of speaking your mind at work. Your opinions are valid, but you run the risk of alienating certain peo-ple, and that should not be taken lightly.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20Approach a problem

that’s been puzzling you from a different perspective, Pisces. This new way of look-ing at things makes all the difference.

“Bear” the dog is a perpetual optimist. on a sunny saturday afternoon in sooke, he “assumed the position” and waited for someone to give him a tummy rub. it never happened — or at least not in this session — but perhaps it will the next time. Clearly, it will NeVer happen if you don’t try; and if you do, it might.

Salmon fishing is excellent nowMuch larger springs are being

weighed in, on average, com-pared with earlier in the season. The bigger spring salmon have definately arrived. The spots up west have been the first to produce good catches of these larger fish, although the Trap Shack, Secretary Island and Pos-session Point have been produc-ing fish in the last few days as well. Otter Point has been very productive, as has Sheringham Point. Successful depths have been varying from 50 to 150-ft on the downrigger, some boats are doing well shallow and while others fishing deep, 150 to 200-ft of water with the gear from 100 to 150-ft on the downrigger. Late June saw some dark water enter the Strait which slowed the fishing down for a weekend, but the water has cleared and the fish are biting again. Many of the trollers are having success using bright colours on flash-ers and bait-teaser heads, glow, glow greens, purple haze, pur-

ple flash, mint pearl, glow pearl, tiger fire and bloody nose bait heads. Kinetic jelly fish, silver betsy, bright greens, and solid chrome, flashers have been working well. There have also been a number of spoons which have been producing on these larger fish.

Many of the boats are trolling bait, and there is a great sup-ply in Sooke. The bites of course vary with the tides but the early morning and the late afternoon/evenings have been good at the local hotspots. Look for a flood-ing tide which reaches a high slack in the early evening, these are local favorites for heading out to Possession or Otter Point for a few hours if the wind is down. Great news from DFO (Fisheries), Coho salmon will be open to keep one wild and one hatchery Coho salmon per per-son as of September 1. Check the regulations on the DFO web-site, or ask about regulations at your local tackle store.

Halibut fishing continues to be good throughout the area from the Sooke Harbour mouth to Sheringham Point, in particu-lar areas closer to the harbour mouth. Many anglers are report-ing catching halibut in shallower water, as low as 75 ft. There are dogfish in the area now, so hali fishers are using more artificial baits, and/or taking more bait along on the fishing trips. The usual halibut baits are working well. Crab fishing in the har-bour continues to be good on the flooding tide, the longer the traps are in the water the more they seem to produce. It’s a good idea to keep your traps out of the transit lanes for boats in the harbour, as they are a navigation hazard, which can cause costly damage to boats. Tickets are on sale for a few great Salmon Derbies in Sooke including The Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society Derby, Bite Me Derby, Vancouver Island Salmon Clas-sic, and the V.I.Rangers Derby.
