You never really notice them when they are flying but when they are gone you just sense something is dif-ferent. The American and Canadian flags have disappeared from the Legion.

Someone came by late at night and stole everything but the flag pole. Whoever took the flag had to climb onto the roof to get at it. The Canadian flag flying at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 54 dis-appeared and now the Legion has to purchase another flag. That’s not all, they have to buy some kind of enhanced security flag pole so it doesn’t happen again.

The American flag, flying on another pole, was brought down because it can’t fly alone without the Cana-dian flag.

“It will cost us a lot of money,” said Legion manager Paul McTav-ish. “We need to get a new one so the Legion can fly the Canadian

flag. It should never happen… and it’s not the first time.”

So the Legion is hop-ing people will donate towards the cost of a new flag pole and flag. if interested, drop off a donation at the Legion bar or through the mail to Royal Canadian Legion Branch #54, P.O.Box 337, Sooke, B.C. V9Z 1G1.

It’s the hand that cra-dles new life and it is missing.

Driftwood Steve’s hand carved hand, which was at the Sooke Harbour House was pil-fered from the grounds sometime around March 24, 2014.

Steve was set to give the art piece to his niece but it went missing and he wants it back. He is offering a reward of $750 to who-ever returns the red cedar carving.

“The reward is to any-one who brings infor-mation to the return of the hand, no questions asked,” said Steve.

The hand is about

four feet long and two and-a-half feet wide and as shown it can cradle a wee baby.

“It’s carved by my hand of my hand,” he said.

Steve spent more than 60 hours carving the hand after he found the cedar burl on the beach.

Driftwood Steve is a carver and artist. He has numerous examples of his talent at the Sooke Harbour House. He calls it Art by Nature and that’s his only livelihood.

“It’s sad, my only income is from my art,”

he said in reference to the missing art piece.

He fashions wooden flowers, gates, fences, arbors and all manner of creative pieces out of the driftwood he finds on the beaches in the Sooke area. He’s a wood salvager and a recycler, artist and craftsman.

He asks anyone who may know where his piece is to just return it to where they found it or get in touch so he can retrieve it. Call Steve at 250-686-8974 or email to: [email protected].

Fall fairs have a way of bringing communi t ies

together. They used to be held at a time when farmers could finally relax after the crops came in. They would boast about the biggest pumpkins and the fat-test chickens and they would visit with each other and relax a little.

Family farms are the binder twine that holds all things together. This year the Sooke Fall Fair is celebrating the fam-ily farm in honor of the United Nations Inter-national Year of Fam-ily Farming. The Sooke Fall Fair takes place on September 6 and 7 at the Sooke Community Hall and across Eustace Road at the Legion.

In her President’s Message, Ellen Lew-ers said, “our aim is to encourage the commu-nity to embrace their family farms (from backyard gardens to commercial producers) and gain better knowl-edge about local suppli-ers of healthy food and what they grow.”

Along with the dis-plays and exhibits of potatoes and flowers, knitting and quilting, and everything to do with growing, home arts and animals, there are some fun things to take part in.

New this year is a family farm dance at Ed Macgregor Park on Sat-urday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Lewers encour-ages people to get into the spirit and get out and dance.

“Dress as a farmer if you like and get ready to do the chicken dance,” said Lewers.

Thinking back to what made fall fairs such an awaited event were things like pie eat-ing contests and they

will be having one at 4 p.m. on Saturday at the community hall. The event is open to everybody and there is no entry fee. Proba-bly a change of clothes would be welcome after though.

Kids make up a lot of the enthusiasm and there are a number of fun things for them to do. There will be a dunk the Barbie tank, Lucky Ducky, Tic Tac Toe and a whole bunch of other fun “unplugged” events. These will be run by youth groups in Sooke and the ticket money (50 cents) will go to those groups for their programs. This could be a really great way to introduce kids to life before computers, cell phones and electronic games. Let them look at the chickens and rab-bits and other animals behind the community hall. The Pet Parade is a fun event where many

pets are dressed up and decorated. It’s fun to watch and fun for the kids to be involved in.

Take the kids or grandkids on an old-fashioned hay ride and pony ride or race a zucchini in the Great Sookeini Race sched-uled for 3 p.m. on Sat-urday.

“We are really try-

ing to get the kids engaged,” said Lewers.

If that isn’t enough to get the excitement happening, buy a ticket on the chicken plop bingo, come listen to the music, bring your entry in to be judged and then auctioned off. A happy face sticker will show which entries are up for auction.

“When people do their entries they have the opportunity to put their goods into the auction. Members of the Sooke Fall Fair Soci-ety will also be making pies for auction,” Lew-ers said.

What’s a fall fair with-out a fiddle or two? There will be a farm-ers’ music jam at 11

a.m. on Sunday. Musi-cians are encouraged to bring along their instruments and pick and strum with others on stage in the commu-nity hall. Music will be playing throughout the two days on the stage as well. Come on down, have a seat and listen to some of Sooke’s musicians and singers giving their all.

The beautiful Fall Fair Quilt will be raffled off as first prize and there are two other prizes this year. The quilt, of course, is first prize, with a basket of local meat valued at $250 as second prize and a pro-duce and a value-added basket worth $150 as third prize. All the more reason to purchase a raffle ticket. All the proceeds go towards future fall fairs.

Literary and photo-graphic entries can be viewed upstairs at the Legion, across from the Sooke Community Hall on Eustace Road.

It’s all there, every-thing that makes Sooke what it is. Old-fash-ioned? Absolutely! Fun? You bet! Community? Most certainly.

For all the catego-ries and list of events pick up a fall fair cata-logue at retail outlets in Sooke.

Did you know….

I have a veggie garden and every

year I am excited to get it going, but

they are a lot of work. I am ex-

tremely busy with my career. I start

the garden late, I don’t weed it as

often as I should. I pick all the

beans a couple of weeks too late.

There is quite an art to it. I remem-

ber things my dad said were impor-

tant when planting and I think part

of wanting a garden is remembering

a childhood and all that went with

it. I will do it again next year… and

all I can do is hope to do better….!

Hanging Judge goes easy on local publisherPirjo RaitsSooke News Mirror

They threw him over the back of a police car, handcuffed him and arrested him.

He hadn’t done any-thing wrong and he did have his day in court. Little good it did him. Cries of police brutality and fixed juries went unheard.

Sooke News Mirror publisher Rod Sluggett will have to serve time in jail.

On September 13 Sluggett will begin serving the sentence imposed upon him by Judge Hang M. High. Prosecutor Yumas B. Guilty outlined all of the misdeeds carried out by Sluggett, which was everything from extended coffee breaks to jaywalking across Sooke Road.

When arresting Slug-gett Staff Sergeant Jeff McArthur said, “a guilty look is all you need.”

On Saturday, Septem-ber 13 the Sooke Com-mittee for the Tour de Rock will build a jail at the kiosk area at Ever-green Centre to house “criminals” such as Sluggett. They will be jailed until such a time as they can raise the necessary bail. Bail raised can be used to release these prisoners or to keep them locked up. All of the “bail” money raised will go to Cops for Cancer.

“We did this two years ago and made $7,500,” said Jane Bed-dows, organizer for Tour de Rock/Cops for Cancer.

Bail money for Slug-gett can be dropped off at the Sooke News Mirror office, #4-6631

Sooke Road.This time the

Jailathon will feature the fire department bouncy house, refresh-ments by donation, a bake sale, music by Janet McTavish and a whole lot more.

The Sooke Commit-tee for the Tour de Rock hopes this will be great show and also

bring awareness to this important cause.

Former Sooke RCMP detachment Staff Ser-geant Steve Wright will be riding with Tour de Rock and the Sooke Lions is throwing their support behind him.

“He’s the only RCMP from the lower Island riding in the Tour de Rock,” said Beddows.

“And he is a member of the Sooke Lions Club.” He is also the only Lions Club member to take on the ride.

Wright is a Sooke resident, although he works in the Westshore detachment.

He said he is “very excited” about doing the ride. He decided to join the Tour de Rock

because he wanted to help because every family is affected by cancer.

“I always wanted to do it and this is my chance to raise money for these kids. Unfortu-nately it is an ongoing battle against cancer,” said Wright.

Wright went to Camp Goodtimes and said it was a heartwarming experience to see where the money is going.

“I’m ready to go, I’m in the final stages of training and I’ve been

training on my own as well. It’s been a long haul. It’s a great expe-rience. The commu-nity of Sooke is a very generous supporter of this,” said Wright.

Wright has been training for the grueling 14-day Tour de Rock, riding 1,000 kms. on his bike. He starts the journey in Port Hardy on September 20 and arrives in Victoria on October 4.

Wright is riding to raise money and aware-ness for childhood cancer research and sending these children to Camp Goodtimes, a camp specifically for children with cancer and their families. The riders will be in Sooke on October 1 at approx-imately 2 p.m.

A long time Sooke resident is finally able to give back to her community in gratitude for all the blessings that she has received. Alanda Carver, is creat-ing the Ahimsa Sooke Yoga and Wellness Cen-tre in the new Hope Centre building located at 6750 West Coast Rd. Ahimsa Sooke opens September 2nd. It is a learning centre that will combine therapeutic yoga, and regular yoga classes, with practitio-ners of wellness such as nutritionists, acu-puncturists, and coun-sellors. 

Alanda is a certified yoga teacher and long time resident of Muir Creek who was par-tially paralyzed in a car accident on West Coast Road in December of 1990. She was a pas-senger of a vehicle that was struck on the side and due to the spinal damage she sustained in the accident, she lost

the functional use of her arms and legs. She was unable to wash her own hair for seven years. It was a long and slow recovery but along the way Alanda was helped back to health by great Sooke health care providers. Eight years into recovery she became mobile enough to try a yoga class. The goal taking that first class was to not leave in an ambulance. When the class finished she was in tears - that yoga class changed her life. It meant that maybe she could have a life.

Now, 24 years since the accident, Alanda Carver is finally in a position to give back to the community that has given her so much.  She is opening a yoga studio at the Hope Centre. The studio will combine Ahimsa Yoga Studio with a not for profit Sooke Thera-peutic Yoga Society. The goal is make yoga

accessible to everyone in our community.

The Sooke Thera-peutic Yoga Society will focus on support-ing yoga for kids and teens and offer yoga for people with special challenges. It will be operated by local Yoga Therapists who have been specially trained to assist people with physical, mental or emotional challenges using yoga. Alanda has special training in using yoga for cancer

patients, yoga to sup-port women’s breast health, yoga for healing addictions and yoga for optimal brain health. Other therapists at the centre will specialize in working with peo-ple with physical chal-lenges and some will specialize in helping people with emotional traumas.

For those who are financially challenged the Sooke Therapu-etic Yoga Society will also offer a daily class

by donation so that everyone can afford to attend. The society will host events and rent space to Ahimsa Yoga to support the funding of therapeutic classes. The new studio will be located  upstairs on the second floor. at the Hope Centre 6750 West Coast Rd. There is an elevator for those with mobility challenges! And great regular yoga classes for the more able bodied!

Yoga becomes accessible to everyone

Woven cedar bark, wool, feathers and blankets were part of the ceremonial dance costuming of T’Sou-ke Hereditary Chief Andrew Lazzar and his daughters Mary and Susan. The year was 1928 and the occasion a “spirit dance” celebra-tion at the Esquimalt Big House.

Though today she would be unknown to many readers, the woman in the centre, Susan Lazzar was an incredibly interesting, generous-spirited and talented woman who made many contribu-tions to our knowledge of our history.

Born in 1910 to Annie (Jones), wife of Chief Andrew and sis-ter of Queesto of the Pacheedaht People, Susan grew up on Sooke Reserve No 1. When she was nine she was sent to Kuper Island Residential School, learning to read and write. Back at home, she learned traditional Salish skills, in prepar-ing seafood and learn-ing to weave cedarbark and sweetgrass baskets at her mother’s side. “My mother, she’d say ‘Watch me, I don’t have to tell you, just watch me.’ She wouldn’t talk about it – she’d just show us how it’s done.”

Married young, to George Cooper of Esquimalt, she was the mother of Jimmie Coo-per, who grew up to serve several terms as the elected chief of the T’Sou-ke Band. Susan sometimes lived in Esquimalt, sometimes in her Sooke homeland, and also in Washington State where she raised several additional chil-dren. Throughout her

life, she continued to practice the traditional Salish skills she took such pride in sharing.

She never failed to give thanks to the tree when she asked the cedar to give up some of its bark for her use and she addressed the sun each morning as she set about her day. During the 1980s, liv-ing permanently in Sooke, “Grandma Sue” became a fixture at the Sooke Region Museum every summer Sunday as she sat out on the lawn showing visitors the processes of weav-ing with cedar bark. We, along with the visi-tors, thought of her as a kindly, gentle treasure.

We were particularly excited the day that renowned US anthro-pologist and ethnolo-gist Wayne Suttles arrived at the museum to study the tule reed

mat she had made. Grandma Sue had cho-sen the finest tule reeds from either side of the Strait of Juan de Fuca

for her woven master-piece.

Local artist Kathy Johannesson partnered with her to write her memoirs, “That Was our Way of Life” a lit-tle booklet available at the museum. Among Susan’s sisters, besides Mary, who married Baptiste Paul, there was Nancy, who mar-ried Dick Pappenburger of Saltspring Island and her eldest sister, Ida Lazzar who became Mrs. Gustave Planes. Ida raised a large fam-ily in Sooke who all became well-known, particularly in the fish-ing community. It is one of her grandsons, Gordon, who serves as T’Sou-ke Chief Gordon Planes today.

ICBC rate increases are unjustified

Distracted driving is being blamed for the proposed raise in ICBC premiums. Really? How many tickets for distracted driving have the police issued as opposed to other traffic violations? Let’s see the numbers. ICBC can blame the rise in rates on anything and we have no way to dispute their claims.

It isn’t a matter of ticketing those who are “distracted” but of educating drivers. We see people on their cellphones all the time and the police probably only catch a very small percentage of them. People are also distracted by a screaming baby, checking their makeup, eating, changing a cd or even funbling around in a briefcase or purse. It’s not just about cellphones, but that is what they are using as rationale for raising the already exorbitent premiums.

Now that people are not drinking and driving they need another way to generate revenue and they have to get that revenue stream from all drivers. ICBC is not in a deficit position, in fact they are raking in the profits - and those profits come from everyone who gets behind a wheel.

This is another case of punishing everyone for the misdeeds of a few. Big Brother is alive and well and he wants your money. If there are indeed so many accident claims due to distracted driving, then punish those who are causing the accidents, not the ones who are not.

We don’t ever share in the profits of ICBC so why should we pay more so they get more? The provncial government made sure ICBC was a monopoly and we have no choice in where we get our insurance. Put the blame and the cost onto those who commit the offenses, not the ones who don’t.

FEATURE LETTER

Horgan writes open letter to Pre-mier Clark on B.C. education dispute

VICTORIA – New Democrat leader John Horgan has written an open let-ter to Premier Christy Clark on the prolonged education dispute. In the letter, Horgan expresses disappoint-ment with the government’s failed approach to date, and urges the pre-mier to directly involve herself in the negotiations, and to set a new tone that respects teachers and our public education system.

 Dear Premier Clark: Parents across our province have

already paid a huge price for your government’s failure to resolve the labour dispute in our public educa-tion system.  Our children deserve the quality public education the gov-ernment is responsible for deliver-ing, and parents deserve an end to the stress and uncertainty caused by the disruption.  The prolonged dispute is hurting our teaching professionals – a job that deserves respect and support from all parties and members of the legislature and governments of every stripe.

 My colleague, Rob Fleming, yes-terday called publicly for your edu-cation minister to be relieved of his duties as it has become clear Mr. Fassbender is not capable of doing his job of providing public educa-tion to all British Columbians.  He delayed and obstructed negotiations all summer, denied mediation would work, publicly provoked teachers

while mediator Vince Ready finally did meet with both sides, and has been unwilling to negotiate on the vital issue of class size and compo-sition.

 It was disappointing to hear this morning that you continue to place your full confidence in Mr. Fass-bender.  Your continued absence throughout this crisis shows a lack of leadership when British Colum-bians need it most.  Parents, kids, and teachers deserve more from their premier than a series of tweets meant to further inflame the situa-tion and point fingers at teachers.  They deserve action towards a real resolution that gets kids back in classrooms and improves the qual-ity of education delivered in our public schools.

  British Columbians watched as you proudly proclaimed your involvement in settling the truckers dispute at the federally-regulated Port Metro Vancouver.  I urge you to recognize that providing a high quality public education to young British Columbians is even more important to our future economic success.  Moreover, every day the dispute continues it disrupts fami-lies, communities and productivity in our economy as the families of 500,000 children struggle to deal with the impacts.

 We need government leadership that listens to parents, the public and the courts about the impor-tance of addressing class size and

composition.  That will require bet-ter resources for our schools.  Your government’s funding freeze is unre-alistic and counter-productive to achieving your own stated educa-tion goals and the ability to achieve an immediate settlement.

  Parents know that in your days as education minister you were directly responsible for unconsti-tutionally stripping teachers of the right to bargain class size and com-position, making it harder to learn and harder to teach a whole genera-tion of BC students.

  Our children’s education is too important for you to do nothing but tweet platitudes and let an incapa-ble minister continue on a destruc-tive path.  It is past time that you began to make amends for your own record of disruption and decline in classroom quality.  I urge you to remove Mr.   Fassbender.  To show that you do not enter labour dis-putes simply for credit after the work is done, I urge you to person-ally and directly involve yourself in the negotiations, setting a new tone that respects teachers and our pub-lic education system, and finally bar-gaining as productively as your gov-ernment repeatedly promised to do - so our kids can get back to school where they belong.

Youth do have a voice

Dear Mr. Haldane, Your letter last week

stated “we are over-looking the needs of the young in this commu-nity because they have no voice.” I am writing to assure you that the problem is not that youth have no voice. In fact, saying youth have no voice actually disempowers youth before they ever get a chance to meet you. The actual problem is that their voice isn’t being sought after.

Youth have a whole lot to say about local government. But you must be so passion-ate about hearing their voice, that you spend your spare time chas-ing after it. Bringing pizza to their sports games, presenting hot-topics to their class-rooms, hanging out at the skate park and learning how to ollie, going to Whiffen Spit on a Friday night and help-ing them build a fort, without judgement of whatever else they’re doing there. 

Youth engagement is like inviting someone you just met to a party - if they’re not invited, they don’t really know if they should show up. So you invite them, but they feel awkward since they don’t know any-body. It’s your job, as the party host, to greet them in the driveway when they text you ask-ing if they’re at the right house, and walk them in, introducing them to people and showing

them where the hors d’oeuvres are. 

For three years, I have been doing youth community develop-ment work with the Sooke Youth Coun-cil and Canada World Youth for the Youth Friendly Business Proj-ect, Youth Friendly Community Project, and Youth Engagement Project. The informa-tion is out there, wait-ing. If you would like to know what local youth think without engag-ing them as above, the reports are on the Sooke Youth Council website.

A trip down Memory Lane

A friend recently passed an article writ-ten by Britt Santowski about Leechtown to me.  

I was born in Vic-toria but my parents lived at the lumber mill (owed by DO Cameron)in Leechtown. I have many pictures of the children who lived at the mill which I believe was at the end of the railway now called the Galloping Goose. As well as pictures of the river and our house.  

There must be many of those who were born about the same time I was who are still around - Shir-ley King, Marlita Neil,

Susie Compte and Mar-gie Welburn all females born within months of each other (must have been some thing in the water!

I spent many summer days at the lumber mill, which was managed by Harold Neil, with his daughter Marlita.

Still needing a dog park

I am a dog owner – two big, happy, fun loving, people loving, other dog loving, ram-bunctious, friendly dogs.

I used to take one of them off-leash to Whif-fin Spit. But he wouldn’t come when he was called, and he would race toward oncom-ing people to say hello. I can understand how seeing a 90-pound mass of brown hurtling towards you would frighten you. I get it. So I stopped going, and he doesn’t get to run around and play with other dogs or enjoy the water.

So, in response to the letter of Aug. 20, would you support having a dog park in Sooke, where dogs could play and run in a safe, secure area? Because they can’t do it anywhere else, south of Duncan. We have tried for years,

with the previous mayor and the current one, to establish a dog park in Sooke.

For all of those peo-ple who don’t want off leash dogs around, help us find a place where they can be off leash.

Poor timing for painting 

Sooke Road was blocked in one lane (alternating) during evening rush hour August 27, 2014. Cars

were backed up almost to Gillespie Road.

The reason for the blockage was not a fire, or an accident, or emergency repairs, but to repaint a school crosswalk, which, to my eyes, was perfectly visible prior to repaint-ing, and which per-fectly well could have been repainted during low traffic periods.  

Whoever authorized this disruption of traf-fic during rush hour should not be making decisions on behalf of the municipality. I would be happy to know the name of the person who authorized this, and that person’s

letters

Upset with editorial cartoon

I resent your car-toon implying the gov-ernment and teach-ers’ union could learn something from young people about team-work.

Characterizing this dispute as squabbling between two parties glibly ignores the real-ity that this is a delib-erate politically moti-vated attack on the BCTF and public school parents and students by a right leaning con-servative group that

favours private educa-tion over public. Con-sider the facts:

Teachers are with-out a pay increase for the last four years and are being offered 5.5 per cent over five years   guaranteeing income will lag far

behind the cost of liv-ing that will run about 18 per cent over that time period. They want to protect their families’ security. Who wouldn’t?

Teachers will not make up their lost wages by staying on

the picket line.... maybe they are concerned about the deterioration of public schools due to Christy Clark’s gov-ernment’s cuts.

Teachers gave up a wage increase over 10 years ago to help fund class size and compo-sition issues. Once the deal was signed and teachers went back to work Minister Christy Clark gutted the con-tract, stabbing teachers in the back. Any won-der there’s a corrosive lack of trust for this government.

The Supreme Court has accused our gov-ernment of trying to provoke a strike to score political points by saying teachers must “volunteer” to give up time for extracurricu-lar activities.The court found this to be such egregious behaviour the government was fined $2-million.

The government fired the negotiating body BCPSEA and replaced them with a political appointee who has done nothing but let the crisis fester - again for political advantage.

So the next time your editorial cartoonist chooses a topic maybe they should do their homework instead of aiding the govern-

ment misinformation machine that contin-ues to grind our public schools into the dust all funded by taxpayers’ hard earned dollars.

When a Friend Gets CancerThis summer a friend of mine got cancer. One moment he was � ne. The next moment he was � ghting for breath. As a respiratory therapist he had his ideas about what was wrong. But the latest is that he has the fastest growing cancer known to mankind. It can double in size in 12 hours.

As a friend and pastor, I visited him today. I decided to focus on the reality of the human condition. But the conversation took a magni� cent turn toward the glorious. It happened when he mentioned how embarrassed he was to have over 600 people on his “team.” These supporters have “come out of the woodwork” of his life to support him in his � ght to stay alive. He related to me how sad he was that he had not supported a colleague at work in the same way when the fellow had come to work with no hair. He was sad that he had not started a “team” for his colleague.

I was gripped by the largeness of the circle of in� uence my friend had. The life he has lived, nowhere mundane, had caused many, many others, including his fellow cancer-suffering colleague to join his “team,” and like Mel Gibson in Braveheart, line up and make fun of the enemy. It made me think that the life we live inspires or depresses those around us. We can impress others with our passion for life, or pull them down with our “poor me” attitudes.

I joined my friend’s team today. I also decided to join him in living an impressive life. I want to impress many, many other fellow humans with the joy that only God can give while we walk through this “valley of the shadow of Death.” With King David I want to shout, “I fear no evil, for You are with me!” My friend has cancer.

Gleaning Sooke’s fruit treesFor a few hours a week, you can make a big difference. 

Two key volun-teers, Larry Galbraithe and

Nancy Bennett,  have stepped up this late summer to coordinate Food Chi’s fruit tree gleaning program, a program run success-fully in recent past sum-mers.  

Gleaning – a fine activity of gathering and sharing food that may go to waste. Food recovery.

This program will extend well into Octo-ber.

  Food CHI is coor-dinating the program with cooperation and support from a num-ber of helping agencies who receive one-third of the picked fruit , vol-unteers receive a third as does the property owner if desired.  Noth-ing is wasted. Even the orchard at Sunriver

Gardens donates its fruit.

Food CHI greatly appreciates the sup-port of Sooke Food Bank, CASA, the Crisis Centre and Meals on Wheels for accepting and distributing the

picked fruit, one less meal for the bears,  more nutritious foods for our citizens! Food Chi also works with Debbie Read from WildSafe, the CRD bear aware program.

  However  to make

this program work Food Chi does need a few more picking volun-teers – to lend a hand. Not everyone needs to be up a ladder. All pick-ing gear is provided, all picks are supervised, some transportation can be arranged, and volunteers are covered by Food Chi’s liability insurance.

For a few hours a week, you can make a big difference. 

For those properties who want their fruit picked a site visit is required first, assess-ment of the fruit – will it keep before distribu-tion to helping agen-cies.  A priority list is set up and as volun-teer resources permit a time to pick likely can be arranged. Priority is given to those families who for a number of reasons are no longer able to pick.

  Please call Larry at 250-889-7482 or Nancy at 250-642-0401 if you can lend a hand or have a few trees that you are not able to pick.

Sandy Reber photo

Jessica Boquist takes part in a previous fruit tree gleaning. Fruit on trees should be picked to prevent interaction with bears and other critters.

Farmers Appreciation

WeekSeptember 8 – 15, 2014 The BC Associa-

tion of Farmers’ Mar-kets (BCAFM) invites British Columbians to show their apprecia-tion for local farmers in the form of a poem - a haiku, a ballad, an ode or a limerick, the style is up to you. Novice and experienced writ-ers alike are invited to submit their best agri-culture-inspired poems to the second annual Ode To A Farmer Poetry Contest, in hon-our of Farmers Appreci-ation Week September 8-15, 2014.

 The grand prize win-ner will receive a $150 gift certificate to the B.C. farmers’ market of their choice. To cel-ebrate the diversity of B.C.’s agriculture, con-test judges will select a grand prize win-ner, plus one winning poem in each region of BC: Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, Kootenay Rock-ies, Northern British Columbia, Thompson Okanagan, Vancouver, Coast & Mountains and Vancouver Island.

Winning regional authors will receive a $50 gift certificate to the B.C. farmers’ mar-ket of their choice. The contest is open to all British Columbia resi-dents. Submissions will be accepted online or

by mail until Sunday, September 7th at 11:59 p.m. For details see Farmers Appreciation Week - Poetry Contest. 

“BC farmers are our best source for fresh, healthy, local food,” says Jon Bell, BCAFM President, “and the Poetry Contest is a means to express our gratitude for BC farm-ers and all the ways they contribute to our health, communities and economy.”

 This is the 5th annual Farmers Appreciation Week, an annual event highlighting the impor-tant contribution that local food and farm-ers make to our lives. Farmers Appreciation Week will be celebrated at farmers’ markets across B.C. from Sep-tember 8 – 15, 2014. For more information on how to participate, see the Farmers Appre-ciation Week website. (www.bcfarmersmar-ket.org/resources/sub-page/farmers-apprecia-tion-week).

 Three accomplished BC writers will judge the contest. Tamara Leigh is a freelance agriculture journalist, President of the BC Farm Writers Associa-tion, and FarmHugger blogger based in the Cowichan Valley of Van-couver Island. Renée Sarojini Saklikar is author of the thecana-daproject. Her work appears in various lit-erary journals, newspa-pers and anthologies, including Geist and Contemporary Verse 2:

The Canadian Journal of Poetry and Critical Writing  (CV2). Ronda Payne is an accom-plished agricultural

Farmers Appreciation

WeekSeptember 8 – 15, 2014 The BC Associa-

tion of Farmers’ Mar-kets (BCAFM) invites British Columbians to show their apprecia-tion for local farmers in the form of a poem - a haiku, a ballad, an ode or a limerick, the style is up to you. Novice and experienced writ-ers alike are invited to submit their best agri-culture-inspired poems to the second annual Ode To A Farmer Poetry Contest, in hon-our of Farmers Appreci-ation Week September 8-15, 2014.

 The grand prize win-ner will receive a $150 gift certificate to the B.C. farmers’ market of their choice. To cel-ebrate the diversity of B.C.’s agriculture, con-test judges will select a grand prize win-ner, plus one winning poem in each region of BC: Cariboo Chilcotin Coast, Kootenay Rock-ies, Northern British Columbia, Thompson Okanagan, Vancouver, Coast & Mountains and Vancouver Island.

Winning regional authors will receive a $50 gift certificate to the B.C. farmers’ mar-ket of their choice. The contest is open to all British Columbia resi-dents. Submissions will be accepted online or

by mail until Sunday, September 7th at 11:59 p.m. For details see Farmers Appreciation Week - Poetry Contest. 

“BC farmers are our best source for fresh, healthy, local food,” says Jon Bell, BCAFM President, “and the Poetry Contest is a means to express our gratitude for BC farm-ers and all the ways they contribute to our health, communities and economy.”

 This is the 5th annual Farmers Appreciation Week, an annual event highlighting the impor-tant contribution that local food and farm-ers make to our lives. Farmers Appreciation Week will be celebrated at farmers’ markets across B.C. from Sep-tember 8 – 15, 2014. For more information on how to participate, see the Farmers Appre-ciation Week website. (www.bcfarmersmar-ket.org/resources/sub-page/farmers-apprecia-tion-week).

 Three accomplished BC writers will judge the contest. Tamara Leigh is a freelance agriculture journalist, President of the BC Farm Writers Associa-tion, and FarmHugger blogger based in the Cowichan Valley of Van-couver Island. Renée Sarojini Saklikar is author of the thecana-daproject. Her work appears in various lit-erary journals, newspa-pers and anthologies, including Geist and Contemporary Verse 2:

The Canadian Journal of Poetry and Critical Writing  (CV2). Ronda Payne is an accom-plished agricultural

writer and reporter. She is a regular contributor to Country Life in BC and various other pub-lications.

The BCAFM is a not-for-profit associa-tion that represents 125 farmers’ markets across the province

and works to support, develop and promote farmers’ markets in all regions of BC. For more information on

the BCAFM or to find a farmers’ market near you, visit www.bcfarm-ersmarket.org.

Literacy is not just about learning to read, write and do math, it is about giving individu-als the tools to live a more fulfilling life and improving society as a whole. Being literate as an individual means being able to navigate a website, conduct bank-ing and send a text mes-sage on a cell phone. Being literate as a fam-ily means being able to read to your children, help them with their homework and read a map together while on a family holiday. Being literate as a society means participating in politics through voting, having an opinion on current events and feel-ing like a participant in the future of our coun-try.

In British Columbia, 40 per cent of citizens have a hard time read-ing a newspaper, filling out application forms or reading a map. Forty-nine per cent of British Columbians

do not have the skills to calculate a tip, cre-ate a budget or under-stand credit card inter-est rates. Seventy per cent of seniors in B.C. have low literacy, likely due to lack of use and health problems. (See www.Decoda.ca for more statistics on lit-eracy in B.C.)

Fortunately, in 2008, the government of Brit-ish Columbia formed a program called Literacy Now. Out of this initia-tive was born the Sooke Region Community Lit-eracy Plan in which our community’s literacy needs were identified and programs were developed to address

them. Fast forward to 2014

and the successful pro-grams in our commu-nity are still in place. The Book Bins, placed at SEAPARC, Sooke Child, Youth and Family Centre, The Stick in the Mud and on the T’Souke Nation Reserve, offer free children’s and adult books to the community. About 150 books per week are distributed to our community through this program thanks to some very dedicated volunteers. The Books for Breakfast program for preschool children will be starting this fall for the fourth year in

a row, where a healthy snack, story time and a free book are pro-vided to participants. This summer 24 school aged children, enjoyed a free Play and Learn Camp (Literacy, Numer-acy and Recreation). All students enjoyed the benefit of learning through play and build-ing upon and improv-ing their literacy skills, thanks to camp staff, volunteers and funders. The Sooke Literacy Task Group, made up of community members, is dedicated to finding solutions to any of the literacy challenges in the Sooke Region. For more information on

programs please go to www.sookewestshore-literacy.com .

UNESCO sees lit-eracy as “a fundamen-tal human right and the foundation for life-long learning. It is fully essential to social and human development in its ability to transform lives. For individuals, families, and societies alike, it is an instrument of empowerment to improve one’s health, one’s income, and one’s relationship with the world.”

Campfire ban lifted in coastal fire centre

Effective at noon on Thursday, Aug. 28, campfires will once again be permitted throughout the Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdic-tion.

The Coastal Fire Centre will rescind its existing campfire pro-hibition due to cooler weather in the fore-cast, which will result in a decreased wildfire risk in the region. The following activities will now be allowed:

• Campfires, as defined by the Wildfire Regulation

• Open fires in an out-door stove

The public is reminded that camp-fires must not be larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide. Anyone who lights a campfire must have a hand tool (such as a shovel) or at least eight litres of water available to fully extinguish it. Never leave a campfire unattended and make sure that the ashes are completely cold to the touch before leaving the area for any length of time.

Syndee MooreSpecial to the Sooke News Mirror

The girls U16B team, The Sooke Sox, hosted and represented Van-couver Island on August 7 to 10 in Dun-can B.C. It had been over 30 years since a girls’ team from Sooke had gone to the West-ern Championships let alone host it here on the island! There were two teams from Mani-

toba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia for a grand total of nine teams in the Championships.

The girls practiced hard and the excite-ment grew as August 7 was just around the cor-ner. The team played a six-game round robin, playing against every team other than B.C. Their first game was against Manitoba at nine in the morning, which meant early ris-ing for the team as they

made their way to Dun-can. The girls pulled off a win with the final score being 16-12 after going into international tie-breaker rules.

It was a very proud and emotional moment for the team and par-ents to make a come-back and win the game. With only winning one game the girls ended the Championships in seventh place and end-ing their six-month sea-son with a total of 66 games (or so), many

tournaments, Provin-cials, and Western Championships. What a way to represent Sooke!

As a player from the Sooke Sox, I would like to thank the team, coaches, and parents for making this the best and most rewarding ball season I have ever experienced. It is such an honour to have been a part of such a hard-working and dedicated team!

  Boating in the fall offers colourful vistas, quiet anchorages and excellent fishing but it is not without its chal-lenges that necessitate self-sufficiency and tak-ing some additional precautions to keep from running into trou-ble.

The Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) and the B.C. Wild-life Federation want to remind all boaters enjoying the fall season on the water to follow these tips to ensure that their excursions are both safe and enjoy-able.

Before heading out, be sure to check the weather forecast. The mixing of warm and cold air can quickly spawn high winds and waves making it treach-erous for small boats.  Fog, too, is an issue at this time of year mak-ing visibility difficult.  Should boaters find themselves in a fog bank, they should pro-ceed slowly and sound their horn at regular intervals to alert other boaters of their pres-ence. 

Well into October, daytime temperatures can occasionally be balmy but dressing for the water tempera-ture will help slow the onset of hypother-mia should the unex-pected happen and the boater find himself in the water.    Accidental cold water immersion can be shocking, but they shouldn’t panic.  It may take a minute or so to get their breath-ing under control after

the initial shock but they will have at least 10-15 minutes, even in very cold water, to affect self-rescue before they start to lose mus-cle control in their arms and legs.  This is where an approved life-jacket, either inflatable

or inherently buoyant, is an essential part of a boater’s wardrobe to keep them afloat after they can no longer swim.

In the fall, there are fewer boats on the water to offer assis-tance, if needed. Boat-

ers should be sure to leave a float plan with a responsible person on shore who will know what to do if they’re overdue.  A marine radio or cell phone will

allow them to call for assistance should the need arise.  Having a few tools and spare parts aboard will also allow them to fix minor problems that might otherwise cause them to be stranded out on the water.

It’s important that boaters ensure that their boat and engine are in good shape and mechanically sound.    Ethanol-based fuel can allow water contamina-tion in the tank.  The use of a fuel additive prevents water in the fuel line from freezing which could cause the engine to chug to a halt.  If the boat has portable fuel tanks, it’s a good idea to have a spare on board as a reserve.

When boaters head out, they should be wary of reduced water levels that can result after a long, hot and dry summer season.  Some of a boater’s favourite shallow water fish-ing holes may be inac-cessible at this time of year.  Also, while under-way, they should keep a sharp lookout for debris and chunks of ice that could penetrate the boat’s hull at speed.

“Spectacular colours,

peaceful solitude and the crispness of the air make boating in the fall a wondrous experi-ence,” says Jean Mur-ray, Chair of the Cana-dian Safe Boating Coun-cil. Now that fall is near, boaters should make the most of what’s left of the boating season

before the cold weather hits. By exercising a lit-tle caution and an abil-ity to be self-sufficient when out on the water, they can more fully enjoy nature’s splen-dour and quiet water-ways.  Visit www.csbc.ca for more tips on boating safety.

Sooke horseshoe champions

 The week of August 12-16 the Canadian Horseshoe Champion-ships were held in Cal-gary Alberta. 

With 138 contestants entered 15 from the Vic-toria Horseshoe Club including four from Sooke.   They had great results, 12 out of the 15 placed in the top four spots.

The four members from Sooke where as follows in their respec-tive divisions:

- Gordie Butts 1st place (mens 40 ft B Divi-sion)

- Rich Hobday 1st place (elders 30 ft E Division)

- Ron Dumont 3rd place (elders 30 ft C Division)

- Clayton White 4th place ( mens 40 ft C Division)

The group of horse-shoe players from Sooke  are now in the process of forming a Sooke Horseshoe Pitch-

ing Association.  With the support from the Sooke community they hope to have horse-shoes courts ready to play on in Sooke the summer of 2015. 

If anyone is interest-ing in playing horse-shoes watch for the public input meeting announcement for Sep-tember 15 or October 13. 

Your support at this meeting could make the difference in the

Sooke Horseshoe Club becoming a reality.

The Sooke Com-munity Arts Council sponsors the Beach Art event. This year it will be on Sunday, Sep-tember 7 starting at 12 noon.

“Once again we’re planning a fun event for all ages. Families,

friends and individual teams  compete each year to build amazing sculptures from natu-ral and not so natural items found on Whif-fin Spit. Each year I am amazed by the creativ-ity of our participants,” said Sandra Scafe, event coordinator.

“Volunteers walk the spit with words of encouragement to our teams and espe-cially the youngsters who are sometimes a

little hesitant. We pro-mote fun and all skill levels receive beautiful rosettes and small cash prizes,” she said.

And there are won-drous creations to be sure.

“We’ve seen many mermaids over the years as well as com-plete Roman villages created by kids. It really blows my mind to wit-ness the fun and inno-vation of these chil-dren.  Our adult teams

continue to amaze us every year with com-plex themes such as First Nations story-telling scenes and we even had a pirate ship with pirates on board!” exclaimed Scafe.

The ultimate goal is to provide a fun and free event for the com-munity to enjoy and promote creativity in the beautiful natural environment in which we are so fortunate to live.  

Beach Art coming up

Dealing with hot dogs

Britt SantowskiSooke News Mirror

Did you know that in little as 10 minutes in a car can do seri-ous harm to an animal? According to the BC SPCA, 10 minutes, even with the windows par-tially open, is enough to seriously harm—or even kill—your pet.

To that end, Leah Braithwaite of Sooke is leaving a SPCA infor-mational flyer on the windshield of any car in which she sees a dog.

“I have a passion for animals and they can’t speak for themselves,” she said, “so I speak for them.”

This is her second year handing out these flyers in Sooke and beyond, something she tries to do every-day. When she sees an animal inside a car—mostly dogs but she has seen cats—she will monitor that animal. If it appears to be in dis-tress, Braithwaite calls both the SPCA and the RCMP. An animal res-cue is then activated. If the animal appears to be okay for the time being, Braithwaite leaves the SPCA infor-mational flyer on the windshield. She will continue to monitor the vehicle and the animal, waiting for the owner to arrive, and ensuring the animal is safe.

So far, she has handed out over 80 fly-ers in Sooke. She has also handed out fly-ers in Westshore and beyond.

Braithwaite is some-

times greeted with appreciation, and sometimes with anger. She does it for the ani-mals, and wants to provide information to pet owners—whose intentions are good—about the hazards of prolonged car confine-ment.

According to their Speaking for Animals brochure, if it is 26°C outside, inside a car—even with the windows cracked—the tempera-ture can reach 37°C in 10 minutes and 43°C in 20 minutes

Dogs left in a car might show symptoms well after they have returned home. Signs of heatstroke include the following:

• Exaggerated pant-ing (or the sudden stopping of panting);

• rapid or erratic

pulse;• salivation;• anxious or staring

expression;• weakness and mus-

cle tremors;• lack of coordina-

tion;• tongue and lips red

(which may eventually turn bluish in colour);

• convulsions or vomiting;

• and last but not least, collapse, coma and death.

If any of these symp-toms appear, the BC SPCA suggest you move the dog to a cooler area, wet them with water (but no ice!),

and fan vigorously to help cool them down. Allow the dog to drink, and take it to the veteri-narian as soon as pos-sible.

No matter what sep-aration anxieties you may be hoping to save your dog from, the BC SPCA makes this rec-ommendation: “Your dog will be more com-fortable if left at home.”

For those who see an animal in a car, Braithwaite recom-mends monitoring the animal’s confinement. If it extends beyond 10 minutes, or if the ani-mal is panting heavily

or unresponsive, call the appropriate author-ities.

The BC SPCA’s Ani-mal Cruelty Hotline can be reached at 1 (855) 6BC SPCA (1-855-622-7722).

The call centre is open seven days per week: Monday to Fri-day from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

If it is an animal emer-gency outside of these hours, please contact the RCMP (250-642-5241) or animal control immediately.
