Tait won 66 per cent of the votes, with Hal- dane running at 33 per cent. Distant in the pack was David Shebib with one per cent of the votes. Tait was acclaimed mayor with 2,527 votes to Haldane’s 1,263. She- bib got 26 votes. Tait said winning wasn’t about one per- son, it was about so many coming together. Joining Tait at the council table will be incumbents Bev Berger, Rick Kasper, Kevin Pearson and Kerrie Reay. Ebony Logins will serve her first term as councillor and Brenda Parkinson will serve her second. Parkinson served on Sooke coun- cil from 2008-2011. Voter turnout stood at 41.5 per cent, slightly lower than the 2011 turnout at 41.9 per cent. When asked how she felt on Sunday morning, Tait said, “I’m pretty excited, it’s just sinking in.” She said that with the incumbents elected there is support for the strategic plan and they will be looking at this. She said there was a lot done and now the ques- tion was how to start building on it. When talking about the questions on the ballot in regard to a community facility and opposition to increased tanker traffic, Tait said there was solid support on a community facility as well as a new prior- ity - the environment. She said the message here was to give more consideration to our environment. “We live in a beauti- ful place and what the question reminded us of through discussion is how tourism is a good employer. We are well situated for that,” said Tait. She wants to be able to connect with the people of Sooke and to put some importance on that. Team building is a big exercise, said Tait. “We will pick up the reins and off we go - then set priori- ties. Now is the time to mend fences and build bridges. Council repre- sents the entire com- munity. It’s over and here we are,” she said. Tait said that Wen- dal Milne’s endorse- ment helped as he was well-respected in the community. She said they originally came together on opposite sides and gradually as they grew up a little they met here. “We formed a good relationship - that’s what good leadership is about. I want to be true to that.” When asked why she ran she said it was because Wendal Milne wasn’t running again and she would have supported him. “I served two terms and it was time to step forward.” She said her job allows her to be flexible and the mayor needs to be out in the com- munity. Herb Haldane said after the election, “I would like to thank those that helped me and supported me in this election. I will con- tinue my close friend- ship with Maja Tait and hope she can find the time to do the job. She is very capable but I do think that more time will be required to gov- ern efficiently. I will be focusing on other community activities and little gov- ernment at this time.

The votes came in pretty quickly for the mayoral and council candidates in Sooke on Saturday night.

The cheers could be heard from the din-ing room at the Sooke Legion when the first results came in from the polling station shortly after the polls closed. Maja Tait hand-ily won the seat from her former councillor colleague Herb Hal-dane.

The race was deemed to be a tight one and nerves were evident throughout the cam-paign, but the numbers told another story.

“It’s pretty over-whelming,” said Tait.

Tait won 66 per cent of the votes, with Hal-dane running at 33 per cent. Distant in the pack was David Shebib with one per cent of the votes.

Tait was acclaimed mayor with 2,527 votes to Haldane’s 1,263. She-bib got 26 votes.

Tait said winning wasn’t about one per-son, it was about so many coming together.

Joining Tait at the council table will be incumbents Bev Berger, Rick Kasper, Kevin Pearson and Kerrie

Reay. Ebony Logins will serve her first term as councillor and Brenda Parkinson will serve her second. Parkinson served on Sooke coun-cil from 2008-2011.

Voter turnout stood at 41.5 per cent, slightly lower than the 2011 turnout at 41.9 per cent.

The candidates who won in the District if Sooke municipal elec-tion were asked to make a few comments and they responded with the following statements, in no particular order.

Some answers were in the form of an e-mail, others were stated on election night.

Ebony Logins First time councillorThe love and sup-

port I’ve felt over the past few months is indescribable. You may know by now that I’m always up for a good challenge. This will be a great term and more than anything, I look forward to sharing all I learn with youth in Sooke!

I am pleased that both plebiscite ques-tions were passed with a ‘Yes’ vote. By work-ing with an experienced team and excellent leader, I know we will accomplish many great things for the Sooke region. Thank you.

Rick KasperIncumbentThe voters are

always right. I want to

congratulate everyone that ran. It was a great flushing out of ideas and public debate.

I am excited for Sooke and especially for the youth. The new coun-cil will work together to work on various com-munity projects: road, trails and downtown core.

One thing i guaran-tee: in four years peo-ple will not recognize the downtown core with sidewalks, bike trails and more.

Thankyou!”

Bev BergerIncumbentI am extremely grate-

ful to have the opportu-nity to serve on council for a third term.

Sooke truly is a slice of paradise, I feel confi-dent that we have some solid plans in place to move our community forward.

This council will be tasked with some tough decisions regarding our contracted services; we will have to look at what is financially best for our town.

Going forward I would like to continue my work with the SEAPARC board. Rec-reation for all ages in an integral part of com-munity. I would also like to have the oppor-

tunity to be a voice at the CRD board, Sooke only has one vote at the table and I feel that my experience has given me incite with how dynamic that group can be.

I feel strongly that a diverse, experi-enced, and community minded council will succeed and I think we have that.

Thank you.

Kevin PearsonIncumbent“The results were

interesting. The mes-sage I’ve taken away is five of six from local

government were returned. Herb is out and Wendal stepped out, the mesage is that Sooke is happy with the current directuon.”

Asked if he would do anything differently, he said he would be just a little more agile to change and take the cues and make the changes. He said he has no regrets stating that the first three years were a learning exer-cise.

“Hopefully I’ve built on the experience I’ve got.”

He said he did not regret not running for

mayor, stating it was a “personal choice for his personal life. I think Sooke’s chosen wisely, that’s what democracy is all about.”

Kerrie ReayIncumbent“I think it was a

great response and I’m pleased with how many got out to vote. There’s a message and I think it’s a great mes-sage. The community is not just looking for business, it’s looking for creativity and inno-vation.

Would I do anything different?

“There’s always a les-son to be learned.”

What she said she learned was she won’t be supporting motions on the fly because it mires council and delays decision mak-ing.

If she has any regrets it is that she feels the last council did not do enough community consultation

She feels more public forums are necessary.

Brenda ParkinsonPrior councillorParkinson said she

was a little disap-pointed that a couple of candidates didn’t get in.

“I would have liked to see them in,” she said. “It’ll be fine with who’s there, we’ll work together.

Would she do any-thing different?

“We worked really hard on the campaign, we had a great team, support from family and friends. I’m happy with the outcome and the work we did.”

No regrets, she said, “I’m happy I ran and made it, we had the perfect team.”

The new council will be sworn in on Decem-ber 1.

DoN’T FlUSH......your expired or unused medications down the toilet or throw into the

garbage please. once or twice a year, I like to remind everyone to go through their medicine cabinet and check for any outdated medications.

Most medications become less effective after the suggested expiration date, however there are a few that may become toxic. also it is a good idea not to take any prescription medication that was prescribed long ago... they may interact with medications that you may be using now. remember to think about the environment when disposing expired medications. tablets, capsules, and most liquids can be taken to your pharmacy to be destroyed properly.

Make sure to take any tablets or capsules out of blisters before bringing them to the pharmacy... this helps with the disposal process.

Did You Know? Well the election is over…the members of the community have spoken. I am not a very political person but I do have my views and of course there are people I support more than others. It will be nice to get all those signs down and see what the next 4 years brings us as a community! Remember you can always go to council meetings to stay on top of our changing community or go to www.sooke.ca and read the minutes from all meetings…being informed helps us become a stronger community as a whole.

11th Anniversary for Sooke’s Vital Vittles Lunches, Friday Nov 21, 2014

On November 21, 2003 the first Vital Vit-tles meal was served in the basement of the old Holy Trinity Church to 25 guests. That first menu included soup and sandwiches, fruit and cupcakes, along with a variety of hot and cold beverages and an opportunity to meet for a while in a warm and safe place.

It was initiated by a diverse group of citi-zens, Rev. Eerkes, Andy Carrier( the Pizza Man) Leo Myers, Lynda Rose, Bill (the sign maker) and a few others, who recognized that there was a need to serve a simple nutritious meal to those who might not otherwise have one, all provided for free and without question.

We are thankful for those who brought the vision to life and faith-fully administered it. The many volunteers, past and present who have given their energy and skills, along with the Coordinators: Lynda Rose (2003-5), Shirley Roodbol (2005-12), Deacon Wally Eamer (2012-14), and Pam Day (2014- pres-ent) who have guided the program and con-tinued the Vision.

The food is served without ceremony to about 60 guests each Friday. People are totally accepted here. It is a deliberately non-denominational event with an emphasis on serving a wide range of people, young and old, with compassion and human fellow-ship. The program was designed to embrace the whole community, pulling together differ-ent people who might not otherwise have an opportunity to meet one another. Guests and volunteers develop friendships and under-standing as a by-prod-uct of sharing a meal together.

The menu has grown a bit over the years to provide a salad and a hot meal in addition to the soup and dessert, thanks to the support of our faithful and gen-erous donors, and our

terrific dedicated group of volunteers.

Right from its first year we have received great support from the whole community, especially from Andy the Pizza Man who provides salad fixings every week, and the special treat of piz-zas once a month. In addition we gratefully

received ongoing sup-port of various kinds and are indebted to several anonymous donors, Sun River Com-munity Gardens, Mus-tard Seed Food Bank, Celtic Circle Sooke, MLA John Horgan, Rotary Club, T’Sou-ke Band, Village Foods, Western Foods, Vienna Bakery, Reading Room

Cafe, CASA, Sooke Food Chi, The Sooke News Mirror and the Voice newsletter.

We are thankful for this community of Sooke, and for the Par-ish of Holy Trinity who continues to support us by providing a warm and safe environment for Vital Vittles.

The Outdoor Guy: On birds and gratitude

Michael Kedge photo

Past, present, future

Mayors from over the past 10 years were together at the celebration of the Sooke’s newest mayor Maja Tait.

Janet Evans, right, served 12 years on council, six as mayor; Wendal Milne spent three years in the mayor’s chair and Maja Tait, left, will take the municipal reins on December 1.

Being in the for-est inspires our imagination. It

stimulates our senses and helps shake off depression and anxi-ety. Then again so does reading a good book like the Hunger Games or To Kill a Mock-ing Bird. Harper Lee had her Mocking Bird while Suzanne Collins

who wrote the Hunger Games has the Mocking Jay. These birds don`t live around here. But as you explore the Cedar Grove, Roche Cove and Matheson Lake trails you may see or hear migrating ducks, such as red-breasted mergansers, Barrow’s golden-eye or buffle-heads. The only mock-ing you might hear is from your friends if you don`t bring some decent boots. It`s pretty wet through the Cedar Grove trail this time of year but worth it.

There is a seem-ingly placid stillness at Cedar Grove but a sub-lime patient movement is unfolding. Nature is growing, slowly and happily here. Nature moves a little bit each day and some of the cedars have been

expanding towards the horizon for last 500 years. The nuances of the West Coast weather have provided a spec-tacular combination of plants like mosses and lichen licorice and ferns to flourish through Cedar Grove.

Listening to the for-est reminds me to not only open my ears and hope to hear the flute whistle of a western meadowlark but also to keep our hearts open. When our hearts are open and when we’re in that moment, you know the one, where you feel connected and the energy flows through you, it’s pretty special and you can feel that here.

If you have time and a sense of wonder there is a vast sweep of nature at Roche Cove,

10 minutes from Gil-lespie Road on the left. The crooked smile start of the trailhead is on the left side of the Gallop-ing Goose parking lot. From there it’s a mod-erate climb for about five minutes and then the trail flattens out. The trail is well marked but at one important junction it’s not. Stay right at the 1.5 km mark and the trail will start to ramble down to the Galloping Goose trail. From this access point you can take a right and be back at your car in about 45 minutes. If you go left, you can walk down the trail and meet up with the Matheson Lake Park, then this just turned into a two- hour adventure.

As I walk through the forest I think back to what my teachers

taught me; that the mockingbird and the mocking jay are the key metaphors in both the Hunger Games and To Kill a Mockingbird. The birds represent help-ing those who can`t help themselves. This is true, but to me, they represent freedom, music and nature. These three things Cedar Grove and places like this around Sooke offer up daily for free.

Today isn’t just another day it’s a gift and the appropriate response in receiving any gift is the feeling of gratefulness, my dogs are great teachers for this. They act as though today is their first and their last day.

Wild and Cultured: Musings from the GreenMan

Disclaimer:   this arti-cle is meant to provoke insight into the many uses and mysteries of the mushrooms that live among us. It is not an invitation to experi-ment into the potentially lethal ingestion of some of the mushrooms men-tioned. Consult with a experienced guide, and not merely a book or website when attempt-ing to identify species for consumption.  

Meaty, medici-nal, mysti-c a l … m a d -

dening mushrooms.  The allure of the mush-room in our Southern Vancouver Island rain forest climes capti-vates our deepest ani-mal impulses. When on the hunt, the crazed ‘mushroom eyes’ kick in—the body becomes enveloped by an extra-sensory perception of sorts.  Perhaps it is an invisible whiff of a cloud of spores on the air that alerts us to our moss-concealed cous-ins of the Fungi King-dom.  Whatever one may call it, this ‘mush-room craze’ may be felt as a benign form of madness.

Then again…maybe not.  Some Viking war-riors of old would froth into a mad dog frenzy after reportedly con-suming a brew of Ama-nita Muscaria.    Storm-ing battlefield in a wild fury, they were deemed invulnerable to attack.  Hence the name, “Beserkers”, who would curdle the blood of the all-too-sober enemies of these insane warriors. 

  On the other hand, this same species of mushroom  also divined us the gifts and giver in Old St. Nick, or Santa Claus.  This beloved jolly figure resembles the Amanita Muscaria, or ‘Fly Aga-ric’ mushroom, both of whom are portly, jolly and brightly coloured in red and white.  The mushrooms were dried and hung by the stock-ings near the fire place or on trees as orna-ments. This entheo-genic (“generating the divine within”)  fungi is thought to have given rise to the sto-ries of “flying” reindeer, Christmas trees, magi-

cal elves, and chim-ney sliding in relation to the partaking of the shroom.  

Deeper into this his-tory of the ‘Fly Agaric’ we discover the magical worlds of the Siberian shaman who  entered states of non-ordinary consciousness in order to promote healing, bal-ance and well being in the community.  This

‘sacred madness’ is bound deeply to the power-animal relation-ship that the shamans had with the reindeer, who incidentally loved to eat the mushrooms as well, leading them to prance and trance about wildly….”On

Dasher, on Dancer on Prancer on Vixen!!”

The kindred kind of the Amanita range from the scale of ‘choice edible’  Amanita cae-sarea,  to the not so subtle devastatingly poisonous “Destroy-ing Angel” and “Death Cap.” 

“Know thy mush-rooms!” a Delphic Ora-cle once whispered into the ears of an initiate in the hove-trodden woods of Pan and the Greenman. We may as well throw in ‘know thy trees’, as mush-rooms are often found in a symbiotic jive with chosen species of their arboreal cousins.

On edibility, the mushroom is often said to have a “meaty” texture and “umami” taste:   the taste bud sensation coined by the Japanese which is said to have a pleasant “brothy” or “meaty” taste with an enduring, mouthwatering and coating sensation over the tongue.  

Wild mushrooms transcend the tasty but domesticated and monocultured Agaricus bisporus of the grocery store variety.  Porto-bellos are merely over-sized versions of this same tame species.

Both the scarcity and wildness of the choice edibles makes them a

rare treat to the cul-tured palate and gut.  Gastronomically speak-ing, Lion’s Mane, Chan-terelles, Cauliflower, Porcinis, Oysters, Lob-sters and Morels have no equal on the hum-drum shelves of the shop.  These names may sound arcane to the uninitiated in the savoury flavours of fungi, but to those who have ever been tempted by even a mor-sel of the above, there is no turning back to the mundane world of white supermarket mushrooms.

The wild chef pur-sues the delectable edi-ble with reverence and desire.  It is this quest for the choice edible that leads the culinary artist to a special kind of madness. When com-bined with the fanatical devotion of the mush-room hunter, the frenzy gets upped a few more notches.

The Amanita Muscaria, above, is considered poisonous and should not be eaten raw. Right, the Wooly chantrelle not a choice edible mush-room.

Q: I recenty lost my mother who was 74 and passed away suddenly of a massive heart attack. I am so happy that, even though she was too young, this is exactly the way she wanted to go. But even knowing this I am really struggling with her loss. Do you have any suggestions for reading, support groups etc.

A: Losing a loved one is never an easy thing to do and although the stages of grief are similar everyone goes through them in their own time and their own way.

After the cards are all open, the guests have gone and the flowers have faded, families are left with the difficult task of recovery in the weeks, months and years following a funeral.

‘AfterCare’ is an important free service which we offer to assist the surviving loved ones with practical guidance, literature and emotional support anytime it’s needed. We can recommend reading material and put you in touch with support groups.

The coming holiday season can be especially challenging and each year we hold a Candlelight Service. An informal, nondenominational service of music, readings and reflection for all ages. We encourage you to come and light a candle in tribute to the loved one you miss, and help fill eht room with the light and warmth of memories. This service will be held on Thursday, December 11th from 7 - 9 pm.

If you have been left the responsibility of finalizing the estate, you may be surprised by the number of details requiring your attention. Struggling with these can cause extra stress. We can provide invaluable insight to help you in your duties.

Please email me ([email protected]) your questions and/or concerns aboutanything and everything to do with before and after death procedures, legalities, traditions etc. and I will do my best to answer them.

Shirley Fire Pro-tection and Emer-gency Response Ser-vices Commission (SFP&ERSC) and Shir-ley Volunteer Fire Department (SVFD) have reached an agree-ment with Al and Linda Morrison, who own the adjacent property to the Shirley Fire Hall, to lease a easement from them at a fair fee for a period of 30 years.

It had to be an ease-ment, as the prov-ince views that leases of bare land over five

years affect the original parcel of land (reducing the area available on a 10-acre parcel to below 10 acres... ).

“The area covered on the easement allows SVFD to have access from both Shering-ham Point Road and West Coast Road to the fire hall. This sec-ond access means that we are not as reliant on individuals at Shir-ley Community Hall parking in such a man-ner that we can get fire trucks out in the event

of an emergency. The 2nd access also means it is much easier to get modern fire trucks into our rather cramped hall,” said James Pow-ell in an email.

“In addition to pro-viding a second access to our hall, there is also an approximate 100 ft x 50 ft area which we can use for practices; such as vehicle extrication,

and fire ground skills development. Without the support of com-munity members, SVFD would be unable to pro-vide fire protection to our community.   

SVFD and SFP&ERSC would like to thank Al and Linda for their generous contribution and support to the fire department.”

Let’s aid not hinder council

The tribe has spoken.If you look at municipal politics as a reality

show, then it becomes obvious that the majority of Sookies voted for a change and one person is in, one person is out. We now have our tribal council for the next four seasons.

The election campaign, like Survivor, was full of maneuvering and gossip. Thinly veiled comments meant to make candidates look less than perfect. All meant to sway the rest of the tribe.

First, no one is perfect. Each of the candidates for mayor came with their pros and cons. Each of them wanted to do the best for Sooke, at least in the way they saw as best, and they should be thanked for the time and effort they put in. It became about the difference in how they saw the community moving forward. Each had the same number of years at the council table and each made decisions at council that were not always favourable to some in the community. Their alliances and supporters rallied and came to the polls and voted in the person who they felt was the best for Sooke at this time. That’s politics. There were upsets all over the place in all the municipalities and that seems to reflect where people are - they want a change.

But, it’s over and the best thing to do is respect the position and aid not hinder.

Thanks should also be extended to those candidates who won’t be taking a seat at the tribal council table. They were also running because they wanted to serve the community. Each of them had qualities and experience which would have been useful and appreciated. It is hoped that they will continue to be a part of the public that speaks out and shares their opinions from the other side of the gallery.

Stay tuned for the premiere of Sooke’s new tribal council on December 1.

ANOTHER VIEW

B.C. Views

The saddest manifestation of Brit-ish Columbia’s modern democracy has produced its judgment, with the election of school trustees for the next four years.

There are still independent, com-munity-minded trustees, but mostly “boards of education” have become the neglected, exploited stepchild of B.C. politics.

Teacher union locals and CUPE-dominated “labour councils” orga-nize candidate forums and ask most of the questions, often to former teachers holding and seeking school board seats. Unions finance the cam-paigns of those who pledge to act as a bullhorn for constant demands for more provincial money, and instruct their members to vote for what should be called the Conflict of Interest slate.

This has been going on for so long in B.C. it is seen as normal. Trust-ees who most loudly plump for their union masters tend to win, thanks to low turnout. The public mostly doesn’t give a damn, since school property tax authority was central-ized in Victoria many years ago, largely because of this special inter-est pressure.

The classic case is in Coquitlam, where one could almost hear the theme from <I>The Godfather</I> as local CUPE boss Dave Ginter appeared before the board of edu-cation in February. He informed the elected trustees that their collective

financial acumen wasn’t up to his standards and some of them would have to go this fall.

“Obviously, the chore I have is to find new trustees,” Ginter clarified in an interview with the <I>Tri-City News</I> as the union’s candidate selection machine stirred to life.

Ginter seems to have made them an offer they couldn’t refuse on Sat-urday, with formerly union-blessed trustees turfed  out in favour of a new group.

Then there’s Vancouver Island, where the 1970s survived, at least until Saturday night. Cowichan school board got itself fired by the province  in 2012 for refusing to submit a balanced budget. Two of the trustees who think the job is to flout the balanced budget rule and instead demand a “needs budget” ran again.

They were joined on a slate by two others who apparently still believe the answer to every prob-lem is to shout for “more govern-ment funding.” They didn’t get in, as voters appear to have been unimpressed by seeing their school board replaced by a provincially-appointed manager for two years.

That brings up a modest pro-posal. How about an appointed trustee for each of the 60 school dis-tricts?  School boards have lost authority over taxation, curriculum (another area of constant union social engineering pressure) and now labour relations. Do we really need them any more?

After the 2013 B.C. election, the Christy Clark government wasted no time taking control of union bar-gaining on behalf of school districts. Trustees were pushed out of the bargaining agency, no longer trusted to represent taxpayers for that duty either.

The puppet role of some school trustees was evident in the recent teacher strike. When the province opted to pay parents for the disrup-tion, there was a chorus of protest from those supposedly elected to represent the interests of parents and taxpayers.

School tax rates are now set by cabinet order, and the B.C. Liberal government is considering a move to regulate local industrial taxes. (This would presumably be to keep union-influenced municipalities from trying to get too many golden eggs from those liquefied natural gas plants.)

Would Education Minister Peter Fassbender and his team continue their remake by amalgamating or eliminating school boards? Not likely.

With a rare teacher settlement in place, trustees will have less incen-tive to grandstand. And their meet-ings may  become something more than union beef sessions.

The right to endorse

I have been reading with dismay the efforts by certain individu-als to discredit Mayor Wendel Milne and Councillor Maja Tait for the mayor’s decision to support Councillor Tait for mayor in this election. It is common practice for an outgo-ing mayor to publicly support his/her choice for the new mayor. In fact, I was surprised three years ago when outgoing Mayor Janet Evans did not put her support behind either candidate.

As anyone who fol-lows local news knows, I levelled a lot of criti-cism towards Mayor Milne and council dur-ing the first two years of the current term, and in my opinion it was mostly deserved. However, I believe Mayor Milne has tried to do the right thing during his last year as mayor, and we indeed have received some needed infrastructure upgrades this year.

I think it is grossly unfair to discredit Mayor Milne and Coun-cillor Tait for purely political reasons. I per-sonally support Mayor Milne’s decision to pub-licly declare his choice for Councillor Tait, and would support the right of Mayor Milne to publicly make this deci-sion no matter which candidate he chose.

Find a solution to tanker traffic

On November 12, Awareness Film Night screened the excellent film “Stand” in which the pristine wilderness of B.C.’s West Coast was shown. The film presented the argu-ment that we need to prevent super tankers carrying diluted bitu-men (dilbit) from trav-eling along the coast, as an oil spill would cause irreparable damage to the area and to the live-lihoods and culture of

the people living along the coast.

There was also a plebiscite on our municipal ballot to vote against more super tanker traffic along the B.C. coast.

It is easy to say ‘no, not in my backyard,’ but it does not solve the problem. Globally, there is a real, genuine need for oil over the next 50 years and more. The current glut of oil supply on the market is a very short-term phenomenon and in the medium and long-term as Middle East and other accessible reserves dwindle, oil from the tar sands will be more cost-effective

and can be much more environmentally safe than alternatives such as drilling in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. In the short-term burn-ing oil for energy is less environmentally dam-aging than coal and as alternative energy sources take over, oil will still be needed for making the many other products derived from it.

It is time to take a stand, and stop the raping of our natural resources for the fur-ther enrichment of a few shareholders and the benefit of foreign countries. It is obvi-ous that the Northern Gateway pipeline built

and operated by a pri-vate company, will not benefit anybody out-side of the corporation and will be inherently a high risk to the environ-ment.

It is time to develop and present alterna-tives that meet the demand for oil while minimizing environ-mental risk and ben-efiting the people of Canada and the rest of the world. One alterna-tive would be to utilize a Crown corporation to refine the bitumen where it is produced, in accordance with strict environmental stan-dards, thus eliminating the risk of transporting highly corrosive, toxic dilbit. Secondly, find an alternative route and port and have a Crown corporation build and operate a pipeline that will minimize the risk to the environment.

 Isn’t it time to stand up and promote a solu-tion rather than simply fight against the only bad alternative pre-sented to us?

Don BrownSooke

We asked: Are you satisfied with the results of the election for Sooke mayor and council?

Yes, I am satisfied with the results.

Emily Winder Sooke

Yes, I am very happy.

Jude BaileySooke

The people have spoken. I believe it is a positive

development for Sooke and I am looking forward to the next four years to see how our town

will flourish.

Phillip CoeSooke

I think it is a very good thing for Sooke, for the youth and to move

ahead for future generations.

Dispose of carcass properly

On November 15 at approximately 9 a.m. I was walking my dogs up Tregear Road when I noticed one of my dogs pawing and acting kind of funny at some-thing.  I went and had a look and to my sur-prise and disgust, there was a deer that had been shot, gutted and skinned laying there in broad view.  Whoever did this is very cruel and ignorant for doing this to such a innocent animal.

On top of leaving this animal exposed, they cut off his skinned hind leg and propped it up against a rock and they also took the horns off of this animal.  This is not a dumping grounds for this type of behav-iour.  There are certain places to take this and dispose of it properly.

What a waste of a good animal.  At least you could of kept it at home, hung it up prop-erly and donated the good meat to the food bank, if all you wanted from this animal was its horns.  I’m sure the food bank could of put the meat to good use as they do have freez-ers and fridges to store meat in. 

This has been done quite recently as there are no animal bite marks or turkey vulture marks present. 

When I saw this, I notified our new neigh-bours, she told me that her dog found it also maybe a day or two ago. This is very dis-gusting, unsanitary, and unhealthy for peo-ple to see.

What sick demented person would do this?  Someone who doesn’t give a damn of where they dump their dead animals.  How would you like it if I and every-body else from Sooke came and dumped our dead animals on your property? Guess it wouldn’t bother you as you don’t seem to care as to where you dump your dead animals. Have some respect for other people’s prop-erty.

I couldn’t figure out what this horrible smell was until I saw this ani-mal on November 15.

In our own backyard

I’d like to respond to some of the con-cerns expressed in Don Brown’s thoughtful let-ter on oil, super tankers and the risks inherent in oil as fuel. 

China is leading the world in the develop-ment of sustainable energy.  If Canada does not increase the amount of oil it is supplying to China, the Chinese, while still being able to sustain their current usage, would naturally be more inclined to put energy and money into fast-tracking develop-ment of their sustain-able energy industries, to all of our benefit. 

Continuing to extract and transport tar sands or any other oil or frack LNG, on the other hand, is putting some of the most basic con-ditions for human (and all species’) survival on the planet at risk. 

In the current issue of New International-ist (newint.org), focus-ing on “Big Oil RIP?” in an article titled “Big Oil’s looming bubble”, the writer quotes an article by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, inter-national business edi-tor of Britain’s conser-vative Daily Telegram, as saying,  “staggering gains in solar power - and soon battery stor-age as well - (threaten) to undercut the oil industry with lightning speed. My guess is that the world energy land-scape will already look radically different in the early 2020s (six or eight years).” (italics mine).  In a subsequent article he wrote that the oil industry is “living on borrowed time.” 

In September of this year the Rockefeller Foundation, one of the kingpins of the Oil Era, announced that it was divesting from fossil fuels.  If, as this infor-mation suggests, fossil fuels, in fact, are living on borrowed time, per-haps we should con-centrate our efforts not on making reforms to oil extraction pro-cesses that, however one looks at them, are still creating or poten-tially creating huge ecological disasters.  Rather, let us put tax dollars and create jobs in the fields of sustain-able energy develop-ment and lowering our energy footprint.

Right here in our own backyard would be just fine.

Question on polling station

To the election offi-cials and local newspa-pers:

When I voted in the Nov. 15 Sooke election, I was surprised to see that the voting booths were paired, permitting consultation between individuals in neigh-bouring seats.

I believe this was improper and in clear violation of the BC Local Government Act, Section 120  (1), which

reads:   “While an elec-tor is in a voting com-partment to mark a ballot, no other person may observe or be in a position to observe the ballot being marked.”

I believe that the secret ballot is one of the foundations of mod-ern democracy.   How can Canada so strongly urge other countries to adopt fair democratic procedures when we do not follow them everywhere ourselves?

I trust that the vot-ers of Sooke resisted the temptation to influ-ence their neighbours or examine their ballots before submission, but I do not see how we can be sure this never hap-pened.

I do not want to cause trouble and hope no person will try to legally challenge the results of the elec-tion. Personally I was pleased with these results and believe they are correct, but I would like to suggest than in future the proper pro-cedures be followed.

Roundabout woes

Once again, I am amazed at the way in which a crazy idea can magically become won-derful. Here we have the out-going mayor, and presumably most,

if not all the previous council, and the Minis-ter of Transportation, waxing poetic about the approval of a new roundabout on Sooke Road across from the entrance to Evergreen Mall. A while back, I wrote about the folly of spending $2 million

for the new connector that goes from nowhere to nowhere, but this roundabout project is much goofier. With the cost of land purchases included this little bit of curvature in the road will cost taxpayers

We are saddened to announce the passing of Walter Bohn, the Patriarch of his still growing family.

Born in the North Sea Island in Wyk auf Fohr, Germany, in1931; Walter immigrated to Canada in 1953 with his young family, first settling in Port Arthur, Ontario, and later to

Vancouver Island to be close to beaches and the sea that he so loved.

Walter was a hard and diligent worker, providing for his family through his sheet metal shop & heating company. He had a strong work ethic but also knew the importance of family and being with his children. Many summer weekends were spent on the shores of Northern Ontario lakes, and many evenings wrestling with his kids on the kitchen floor.

Fishing and hunting were a passion as well as sailing on Lake Superior while they lived in Thunder Bay. He enjoyed salmon fishing and became known for his skill in smoking fish.

Beloved husband, Papa, and Opa, Walter is survived by Gertrud, his wife of 62 years; 8 children: Inga (Rick), Ina (John), Rene (Ed), Ellen, Louise (Tom), Walter (Michelle), Joanne (Howard), Erika (Robert). He also leaves 17 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.

He will be sorely missed.

Local business wins prestigious award

Village Food Markets has won the Bronze Canadian Independent Grocer of the Year Award for 2014. Each year independent gro-cery stores coast to coast in Canada com-pete for this award. Each store is person-ally visited, judged and evaluated based on categories such as cus-tomer service, cleanli-ness, freshness, team performance and retail-ing excellence, to name a few.

“It is a great honour

to be recognized for all the hard work that the staff put into making the store as successful as it is.” Manager Scott Logan was quoted as saying.

“We appreciate what receiving this award means to our staff. That we have beaten out so many other great stores across Canada. It really shows that after being in business in Sooke for 35 years, Village Food Markets still can com-pete on a national level with other successful

grocery stores.” Store Manager Wayne Knee-shaw said. “ It’s quite an achievement!”

Village Food Mar-kets was the only gro-cery store from B.C. to receive a national award for the medium store size. Established in Sooke back in 1979, the store in one of Sooke’s largest employ-ers with a staff close to 100.

The store is a large supporter of local donations. Back in 2010 when they switched

their dairy over to Dairyland, they started a one of kind program to get money back to the local Sooke schools. This unique Milk Money program has contributed over $28,000 directly back to the schools in the last fiveyears alone.

Mr. Logan said,” Such a large part of our suc-cess is how hard our staff work at being the best. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them.”

Sports & RecreationOn a sunny crisp Saturday afternoon

Spartans played a do or die playoff game against the Titans-with a 21-12 loss on the day the Spartan’s first season in the Island Co-op league came to an end. Defence fal-tered with lack of outside containment in the first half however played strong in the second half with two steals by Logan and LaMontagne, holding the Titans to one score. On offence Steele and Price both bootlegged for our two scores with T-Bone Boyd and Ben Power catching a number of

passes. Carrier at center snapped a per-fect game including two convert tries and a punt! A fun season  was had by all: no concussions (for 6 seasons), no serious injuries. We came in second in a eight team league playing American High School rules for the first time. We scored the second most points and had the stingiest defence. All in all it was a good season.

The boys did well. We are very proud of them. God Bless and see you at the field!

Spartans 21-12 loss in do or die playoff game against the Titans

Sooke Soccer held a goalkeeper and striker clinic last Tuesday with two amaz-ing coaches from Victoria, Shel Brodsgaard and Jamie (JJ) Fales.  Players from U10-U18 participated in the clinics.  Just under 80 kids attended despite the chilly winds.  SSC would like to thank Shel and JJ for coming to Sooke to teach our kids some new moves.  SSC would also like to  thank Tim Satterford for arranging the clinics.  We plan to hold more clinics in the upcoming months.   

 The Sooke Dolphins U8 girls had a frosty Saturday morning game against JDF Saun-ders and pulled out a 2-1 win. These girls are getting better with each passing game, they have a home game next Saturday Nov 22 at 11 am on Field #1

Come on out and cheers these superstars

on.Peter Jonassen - Coach

 This weekend was a tough game with our

U16 boys fighting hard against U16 boys Gorge. A lovely goal from Matthew Miller on a PK, outstanding Goal tending from Bobby Nex and our brand new player Rylin Wilsher made some great saves in the second half unfortunately our boys lost to Gorge 2-1. 

Michelle Berkely – Coach Sooke U-15 Boys arrived at the JdF Field 3

with their team at full strength, with focus, and a lot of determination to take home a win. Nick Seabrook opened up the scoring with a free kick through JdF’s wall placing the ball top right corner 8 mins into the

game start. In the 2nd half Andrew Rodd assisted by Lautaro Cepeda made no mis-take placing the ball behind JdF’s keeper. JdF answered back though with 2 goals. With the score now even, the remaining minutes were nail biting but with 5 mins left, Nick Seabrook with a well placed pass from Andrew Rodd once again found the back of the net. Final Sooke 3 over JdF 2, nicely done Sooke!

Rob Oyler - Coach Sooke Div3 Woman hosted Ladysmith for

a Sunday noon kick-off at Fred Milne. Lady-smith ladies came on the pitch fast and furi-ous determined to gain the lead early, they were successful finding the back of Sooke’s goal with 3 goals in the first half. Sooke

ladies were not about to let this get them down though, coming onto the pitch    in the 2nd half determined to fight back, and fight back they did playing in Ladysmith’s defending third forcing them to make mis-takes, this drew a PK where Carymn Wright made no mistake and put the ball behind the Ladysmith’s keeper. Remainder of the game Sooke kept the ball in their offensive midfield zone but ran out of time. Lady-smith left the pitch with a win, but they had to work hard for it, nicely done Sooke!!

Rob Oyler – Coach  U14 Boys tied with Bays United with their

single goal scored by Aiden Parkin.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Put your vitality and conspicuous nature to good use, Aries. Vol-unteer for a cause or donate your time to a worthy organization. Expect others to follow your lead.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Now is not the time to keep your feelings under wraps, Taurus. If you have an opinion, share it. Fortunately there are plenty of peo-ple willing to lend you an ear.

GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Being hot then cold is sometimes the Gem-ini way. Shifting feelings and being mercurial is

just how you’re made, and those who call you friend will have to adapt.

CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you are full of ideas this week and you can put them to good use by being as vocal as you can at work. Suggest a brain-storming session with other employees.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, be genuine and speak from the heart this week. Your com-passion for other peo-ple’s feelings will help a dear friend who will be grateful and apprecia-tive of your kindness.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Do not judge a book by its cover, Virgo. That person you have been checking out is entirely different from what you first imagined. It’s time to delve deeper.

LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 The element of sur-prise can work well for your love life this week, Libra. Do something unexpected, and you

and your significant other will be happy with the results.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, make some changes to your fitness routine this week so you don’t find yourself in a fitness funk. Switch the yoga mat for some cardio and vice versa.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, if you are feeling a bit bored by your relation-ship, take the initiative to stir things up a bit. Go to a concert or plan a short jaunt to a tropi-cal locale.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Someone you know may have gotten in over his or her head and can probably use your help right now, Capricorn. Help this person come up with some solutions to the problem.

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, shake up your routine and you may be surprised by how much you

enjoy the changes. In fact, you just may look at everything from an entirely new perspec-tive.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, though you cannot afford that especially pricey treat you’ve had your eyes on, you can afford something a little more modest.

Saltwater fishing for salmon in Sooke con-tinues to be slow for the time being. High winds and the fact that there has not been a lot of action from win-ter Spring salmon has kept most boats off the water, so there aren’t many good reports coming in.

I have heard the odd report of boats getting a strike or two but only a couple of fish com-ing in. The salmon that have hit the gear have been deep, 120 to 140ft on the downrigger.

Halibut has been good for those able to get out when the wind is down. The halibut fishing has been con-sistently good with catches in the 15 to 35lb range being weighed in

lately. Herring, salmon bellies, and octopus have been popular baits while anchoring or drifting in 180 to 240ft of water.

Crabbing in the har-bour has been getting better, with catches of two or three nice Dungeness crabs per outing being more com-mon. Best baits include fresh fish trimmings or chicken backs and necks fished during the incoming tide.

The winter Spring salmon fishing should be picking up soon!

Chipped it is, indeed, but it’s ours. The only known item that shows the effect of Japanese forces shelling B.C.’s coast in World War II is now part of Sooke’s landscape.

It was just a few months after Pearl Har-bour, in June of 1942, that submarine I-26, commanded by Minoru Yakota, shelled Cana-dian shores at Estevan Point. While the DOT meteorological station was likely the main target, the lighthouse was in the line of fire as well. Wireless opera-tor E.T. Redford wired, “We are being shelled” while lightkeeper Rob-ert Lally ran up the tower staircase to close down the light.

A 17-year-old light-house assistant in 1942, Clifford Martin, now of Nanaimo, recalls the event and the hyste-ria clearly. At the time of the shelling, he had just been transferred from his lens polishing job at Estevan to the lighthouse at Lennard Island.

For a period during the 1980s it seemed that this significant article of Canadian his-tory would end up in an American museum, but due to the determi-nation of Lanny Seaton and other crew mem-bers of the Canadian Coast Guard Station on Huron Street in Victo-ria, this was not to be.

Fortunately for Canada’s own histori-cal records, it seems that Lanny, currently a councillor in Langford, took a stand, along with the rest of the Coast Guard crew, when faced with an impending visit from representatives of the Smithsonian Insti-tution. Though the group planned to take the incredibly valu-able First Order Fresnel Lens back to Washing-ton with them, the men at the base objected, protesting that such a significant part of Can-ada’s history should remain in Canada.

Soon after the 1906 wreck of the iron steamship Valencia at Pachena Point, with great loss of life, a series of navigational aids including more lighthouses had been established on our coast. A First Order Lens is the largest ever constructed for light-house use and at the time both Estevan and Triangle Island (off the north Island) were equipped with these

immense many-faceted glass structures. At that time, the lenses rotated in a bed of mer-cury, but decades later, when the hazard of mercury use was bet-ter understood, these lenses were retired and other lighting installed.

Sooke had many friends at the Coast Guard base, and with the help of foreman

Donny Clark, who had grown up in Sooke, the hierarchy was per-suaded to allow the Sooke Region Museum to acquire ownership of the long-retired Tri-angle Island Lighthouse dome.

By then it was 2004, and Triangle Island’s original First Order Fresnel Lens was long gone. After the 14-ton

dome was transported to the museum in an ingenious feat of engi-neering, it was mounted on a tower and fitted with the sister First Order Lens that had been retired from Este-van Light when it was refurbished.

Today this historic chipped lens from Este-van Point is seen each day by motorists who drive by the Sooke Region Museum. The second photo shows Pete Fletcher, retired from the Coast Guard,

back in 2005, when he was re-assembling the lens sections for mount-ing at our museum.

9:30 am Bible Study • 11:00 am Church ServicePastor: Mike Stevenson

Joy for all seasonsI don’t know about you, but I love the change of seasons. Mother nature’s remodel is great for our bodies and souls as each season gives us an opportunity to tackle new hopes, goals and wardrobes.

The end of March brings excitement comes with the realization that Spring is around the corner. The end of September brings an excitement for warm cozy sweaters and warm drinks and please

don’t get me started for what is coming in December. In our family Christmas began almost two weeks ago!

As we enter every season, we are excited for the newness but as the weeks pass by, usually the excitement fades and then the complaints begin: “Man when will this summer end? It’s so hot” “I cannot stand another Christmas song, people are too crazy”. This pollutes our mind adding stress to our lives, and the question that we face is: can we truly be joyful in every season?

You might be a skeptic when you realize that my answer is yes! The Bible states “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Whatever your approach to Christianity, you cannot deny that this is good advice. Every day, let me repeat that, every single day is a gift that has been given to you, 86400 seconds � lled with possibilities and that fact should make you smile every day.

So here is your challenge as you wake up tomorrow morning. Instead of letting the thoughts of Christmas, the next allergy season or tax time overwhelm you, look out your window and observe the amazing corner of the world where we live, and like Frodo and Sam get up and be ready to tackle the new adventure that is ready to unfold in front of you. That may sound like a fantasy but the truth is, this God who created the seasons and conducts the passing of one into another every year, is the same God who created you and who desires that in the midst of each season of your life, that you would turn to Him to � nd your source of strength and hope.

Whether you are in the spring of life, or frozen in the winter of your soul, � nd your joy in Him.

more than $1 million.Roundabouts can be

useful for dealing with intersections where there are traffic prob-lems. The Transporta-tion Plan, adopted in 2009, identifies a couple of intersections where roundabouts might be okay in the future when traffic volumes, par-ticularly from the side street, are high enough to warrant the expense.

But wait – council has made a number of deci-sions in the past five-six years that have made any significant develop-ment of a new down-town unlikely, if not impossible. A modified vision for the downtown area, which contradicts parts of the Downtown Plan, is included in the OCP, but there is much evidence that this ver-sion also won’t ever see the light of day. So why would you build a roundabout at the north end of a new “Main Street” that isn’t likely to ever happen?

The mayor is quoted as saying the project “provides safer pedes-

trian travel.” Research shows roundabouts are actually one of the most dangerous forms of car/pedestrian inter-face. This research was shared with the previ-ous council.

For much of the day, traffic moves through this area fairly quickly and easily, until it hits the lights at Church or Otter Point Road. With the new roundabout, traffic will be slowed down significantly in the middle before it reaches the lights. The 15-20 cars per hour that want to turn left out of the Evergreen Mall during rush hour will certainly have an easier time of it, but do we really need to spend more than a million dol-lars for that to happen?

I suppose there is a very tiny chance that the new mayor and council will come to their senses and stop the project before any more money gets wasted, but I’m not going to hold my breath.

LettersLooking BackA look back at what

made the news in Sooke in years past.

November 19, 1974Velvet paintings go

cheap in village price war

The price in Sooke of velvet paintings brought into the country from Mexico dropped from $20 each to $14 in less than 15 minutes Saturday as a mini-price war devel-oped between Larry Olson of Sooke Furni-ture Gallery and Faisal Shawar of Edmonton who set up the out-door display across the street.

Mr. Shawar began the day by selling the paintings for $20 as he had on Thursday. Mr. Olson, explaining that he was prepared to take a loss to meet the “no overhead” competition of Mr. Shawar, who was selling from a parking area in front of Seaview Pharmacy, set up his collection of Mexican paintings outside too, and announced a price of $18.

As fast as a Mirror reporter could cross and re-cross the street, Mr. Shawar dropped his price to $15 and Mr. Olson put up a sign announcing a price of $14.

At that point, Mr. Shawar shrugged and said, “Everybody’s enti-tled to make a living,” repeating his $15 price.

And at last report that’s how things stood as the business day came to an end.

November 21, 1984Voter turnout only 9

per centOnly nine per cent

of Sooke voters turned out Saturday to elect candidates to school board and forum coun-cil.

Incumbent Horst Doniecki was re-elected to his seventh consecutive two year term defeating Don-ald Lassey and Sandra King.

Incumbents Lorna Barry and Rick Met-calfe were re-elected to two-year terms on the Forum Coun-cil along with Richard Beauchamp, of East Sooke. Paul Gleave was defeated.

Returning officer John Williams called Sooke’s voter turnout “the worst that I have ever seen.”

Regional Director Ray Nestman said it

was “shocking.”

November 22, 1989Recycling just

around cornerYou’ve been waiting

for it for months and at last it’s arriving - recy-cling for the Sooke Elec-toral area begins Mon-day, Dec. 4.

Sooke recycling co-ordinator Chic Davis says he’s received

many phone calls over the past few months from people want-ing to know when the recycling program will begin.

“There’s a lady at Gordon’s Beach who keeps phoning me and saying if the program doesn’t begin soon she’ll have to move out of the house, because she’s got so much stuff

saved up,” Mr Davis told the Mirror.

Drop box loca-tions will be at 17-Mile House, Milne’s Landing and John Muir School upper parking lot.

November 16, 1994Sooke teen to get

bravery medal for res-cuing dad

A 16 year-old Sooke teen has been awarded

the Governor Gener-al’s Medal of Bravery for his participation in the rescue of his father after a hiking accident last September.

Reg Stratton will travel to Ottawa with his father Peter in December to officially receive the award from Governor General Ramon Hnatyshyn at Rideau Hall.

The Medal of Brav-ery is awarded for acts of bravery in hazard-ous circumstances, and are awarded by the Governor General on the advice of the Deco-rations Advisory Com-mittee.

Reg was nominated by a woman in Sidney who had read about the accident that occurred while he was enjoying a day hike on Mount Arrowsmith with his father and friend Joel Hanson.

Peter ran into trouble while the trio were com-ing down from the top of one of the smaller peaks in the area.

Reg said as his father crashed into the rocks he slid about 100 feet down a narrow gap between two peaks.

Pirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

When one has a passion for creating art,

that passion will sprout roots and grow. The passion comes from the act of doing and the end result is a fascina-tion and appreciation for all art forms. That’s what it is to be an artist.

Artists and their muses are what make the world a more beau-tiful place. They are the ones who enrich our lives through their cre-ativity.

A whole roomful of artists and crafts peo-ple will be gathered at the Sooke Community Hall from November 21 to 23 for the annual All Sooke Arts & Crafts Christmas Craft Fair. Two of those are Sooke residents Rae and Wes Williamson.

Between the two of them they have com-mandeered just about the whole basement of their home for their respective art projects.

Rae is a multi-faceted artisan who makes plates, bowls, jewelry and ornaments out of glass as well as beau-tiful intricate beaded jewelry.

Wes does silverwork and faceting of semi-precious stones which he fashions into pen-dants, rings and brace-lets. He calls himself a rock hound.

Together the two of them spend hours in their studio space working on their indi-vidual pieces.

“He is awesome from a technical aspect,” said Rae of her cre-ative partner and hus-band. “We are inspired by what each other is doing. He will also say, ‘what do you think of this?’, It’s a good mar-riage.”

Their work is well designed and intri-cately put together. It is far from simple beads on a string or earring made from bought find-ings. Wes fashions his jewelry the old-fash-ioned way with the tools of the trade - ham-mers, carving tools, heat and a lot of time.

Rae started out beading and has since expanded her methods

to include enameling and metal and leather work. She is finding she wants to re-purpose items and bits and pieces that would nor-mally go into the trash or a second hand store. Filings from brass have been incorporated into glass, adding a one-of-a-kind element to her pendants. Old silver-plate is used in several ingenious ways as are broken shards of heavy

duty glass. “It forces me to take

it and combine it with other methods,” said Rae.

You can see the deep influence each has on the other. They both experiment on tech-niques that interest them and they love learning.

Each winter they would go to Arizona and attend the mega-rock and gem show. In

Quartzite, Arizona each year there are acres of rock enthusiasts with acres of products to tempt other enthusi-asts. It is the largest rock and gem club in North America.

“It gives you the opportunity to try almost anything,” said Wes. When they did spend five to six months in the south, they were truly immersed in learning and Wes said

it gave you the flavor and whether you liked it or not. Obviously they did.

The Williamson’s have been in Sooke for just over two years and they couldn’t be hap-pier. They have found community in Sooke and volunteer at the Sooke Fine Arts Show and both are members of the Lions Clubs. Both of them are small town people and they said “Sooke is perfect.”

“People care about each other here,” said Rae.

Rae and Wes will be at the Christmas mar-ket for all three days.

All Sooke Arts & Crafts Christmas Craft Fair

Where: Sooke Community Hall, 2037 Sheilds Road, Sooke

When: Friday, November 21, 1 to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Who: More than 80 vendors selling everything from birdhouses to weaving, homebaking to Christmas ornaments and every possible thing inbetween. These vendors are very good at what they do and they want to share their art and craft. Many are members of the All Sooke Arts & Crafts Association

Why: The objective of this Association is to assist and encourage the artists and craft persons of Sooke in developing their skills and promoting sales through public displays and demonstrations and provide network services to other community members and groups.

The group meets every third Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at Knox Presbyterian Church, except during the summer months. Each year they offer their well-known Christmas Craft Fair, the oldest craft show of its kind on the Vancouver Island. Look for ASAAC members at the Sooke Spring Rotary Auction & Fair each year where our members will be displaying selected works. New membership applications are considered in February of each year.

Unwin wants to transform people through the power of artDaniel ChauvinSooke News Mirror

Paul Edgar Unwin is a man on a mission. Hav-ing lived in Sooke many years ago, he sold his Noble House Coffee and Teas, and made his way North to Port Hardy and Quatsino to live a simple and remote life. He travelled the world, and eventually came back to Vancouver Island with renewed vision.

Unwin received a set of carving knives for Christmas one year and he set about carving his first piece. As with any original artist, his first piece was an entry point which set him on the road to a higher calling.

Teaching himself the art of chainsaw carv-ings was an evolution in his craftsmanship and he took up the chal-lenge with gusto.

After a stint in Port Hardy, under the men-torship of master chain-saw carver Terry McK-innon, Unwin wanted to “see what his art could do.” Passing on certain

carvers’ secrets and techniques, McKinnon impressed upon Unwin not to join speedy chainsaw competi-

tions, or art shows, but to focus on the magical process of the art itself.

The apprenticeship emboldened Unwin in

his vision to transform people through the power of his art. And Sooke, he felt, was a place in dire need of

public art and beautifi-cation. So he returned with the dream to inspire people in the town that beckoned him back with its natu-ral beauty and commu-nity spirit.

Unwin’s tools consist of several chainsaws of varying sizes for rough cuts to highly detailed slices. His pieces, which are found all over the world speak of a primal nature that is expressed in bold and nuanced flow.

“You have to be able to draw before you carve. Leaving the face and get-ting to the general out-lines in the front first. Then I move to the side and back of the figure… and lastly I return to the eyes, which is where the deepest expression takes place,” Unwin said.

Looking closely at his carving of Angry Salmon it is easy to see how true this statement is. The two salmon seem to carry a chiselled determi-nation to make their way back upstream to spawn unto death.

His work is a menag-erie of wild animals fro-

zen in life-like moments of fluid grace and contemplative still-ness. From towering, larger-than-life bears, to majestic eagles and playful otters, Unwin is deeply inspired by the surrounding nature of the island he calls home.

The power of the Northwest Coast totem poles have been a source of inspiration for his art as well, with his style marrying the traditional native craft with the wildness of British Columbia’s ani-mal life.

His hope is to create a monumental piece

in the centre of Sooke: a town clock gushing with a ‘frozen’ waterfall and a host of wild crea-tures to draw attention to the relentless power of art and nature in a kinetic fusion of vision, power and beauty.

“I have an idea and I want to commit to it: to transform people through my art,” Unwin said. His art can be found in Sooke at Maple Ave for Eve Grove sub-division and a carving on the covered bridge at the end of the road, as well as an eagle carv-ing in the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce office.

Daniel ChauvinSooke News Mirror

A former Sooke resi-dent has developed a helpful app for keep-ing track of your pets. Called ‘Petunia’, the helps keep your pets safe and their records close when it matters most.

Christopher Prince and his wife Natasha Vizcarra currently live in Louisville, Colorado. The couple has four cats which has been a big part of their inspi-ration for the applica-tion. She is a writer and and a graphic artist, and has led the visual design.

The couples’ com-pany name is named after one of their cats, who first had the nick-name Muffin, and then became “Spastic Muf-fin” because she ran around the house cra-zily. The name stuck for the company.

Christopher lived in Sooke for a time. He went to elementary school and completed high school at Edward Milne. He worked at Vil-lage Foods working as a bag boy. One of his employers lent him a Canon SLR (pre-digital) camera and got him started on his photog-raphy hobby.

He went on to study computer science at the University of Victo-ria, his MA in psychol-ogy from the University of Hawaii, Manoa, and his Ph.D. in computer science from the Uni-versity of Louisiana Lafayette. Unofficially, this Ph.D. was in cog-nitive science, and was split between psychol-

ogy and computer sci-ence. Chris studied dolphins in Hawaii and chimpanzees and rats in Louisiana.

After a stint as a pro-fessor in computer sci-ence, he left the uni-versity and started his software company.

Spastic Muffin does software contracting on various projects

and systems and also creates apps. The Petu-nia app focuses on pet medical history, but also records per-sonality quirks, symp-tom tracking, dietary requirements and makes it easy to share

that information with pet sitters and veteri-narians.

The app is designed for the iPad and iPad-mini running IOS 6 or later. It is a free app and the in-app purchases allow for full-sharing of

information as well as removes ads.

You can download the Petunia on the app store.

We knew that our toilet was using water. We didn’t know it was losing water.When we heard that in one year a leaking toilet could waste enough water to fill a swimming pool, we wanted to know if our toilet was water tight. So we picked up a leak detector tablet and did the test. Turns out, our toilet needed a simple tune-up. Now it’s working fine.

Pick up your free leak detector tablets at either 479 Island Highway or 625 Fisgard Street. Or simply call 250.474.9684 to receive them in the mail.
