“The septic smell when it rains is really bad,” Van Male said. “There’s no fix in sight.”

Leigh said the regional district received a connection proposal from the city on Oct. 10, but the price tag was too high.

“The regional district cannot proceed with the project due to the fact that the proposed connection cost to Campbell River would more than double what was authorized by the northern Area D citizens at referendum,” Leigh said.

Nearly six years has passed since the June 10, 2006 referendum. Northern Area D resi-dents voted in favour (52 per cent) of the regional district borrowing $9,250 per lot, for the collection and disposal of sewage. Proper-ties benefiting from the sewer service would cover the costs in either one lump sum or spread out over a 25-year period.

The regional district has also secured approximately $3.4 million in provincial and federal government grant funding. That fund-ing is available until March 2016.

But Leigh said the regional district can-not proceed with the sewer system this year because the city’s proposal would push the cost to more than double what was publicly approved.

“The regional district is legally unable to proceed with the project unless it is within the authorized spending limit,” Leigh said.

She said a second referendum hasn’t been ruled out.

“Next steps are for the regional district staff to provide other options/costs, but anything beyond the spending limit (approved) would require a form of public assent through either an Alternate Approval process or another ref-erendum in the proposed service area,” Leigh said.

The liquid waste planning process for Area D has been ongoing since 2003. According to the regional district’s website, construction on phase one of the sewer project was ten-tatively scheduled for the end of 2009 and is valued at $5.1 million. It involves around 4,000 metres of gravity sewer main, 200 metres of forcemain, two pump stations and 172 service connections to existing properties. Subse-quent phases are supposed to extend the proj-ect southward to include Mittlenatch, Stories Beach and York Road subdivisions.

Runway 2012 will set the stage for this year’s dry grad at Timberline Secondary.

The Grade 12s are working hard to orga-nize the upcoming student fashion show. Eighteen guys and 28 girls are already signed on to model with another 10 stu-dents helping out in a variety of ways.

The fashion show, one of the many dry grad event fundrais-ers, will feature cloth-ing from local shops including Boardwalk, Bird of Paradise/Divas, Bootle gger, Warehouse One, Red Phoenix, Ridgerider, Reitmans, Work World, Ragdolz, Spinners, Intersport, Keep Your Shirt On and the Cin-derella Project. Bliss gowns from Nanaimo is also represented and locally-owned Discov-ery Foods is the corpo-rate sponsor.

There will also be a raffle table with many donated items from other stores in town including Discovery Foods.

Runway 2012 takes place on Tuesday, May 1, in the Timberline gymnasium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 and $10 in advance for stu-dents or seniors and adults. They are $10 and $12 at the door.

Tickets are available at Ragdolz and Bal-loons ‘N More.

Celebrating Easter downtown

What a fabulous day!Sunshine, temperatures in the mid-teens and hundreds of families taking part inSaturday’s fun Easter activities sponsored by the Downtown Business ImprovementAssociation. Things got off to a tasty start at the Easter Egg Hunt at Robert Ostler Park and then the huge crowd walked over to Spirit Square to take in the children’sentertainment, petting zoo and craftstations. A salmon barbecue was held too to raise money for the Campbell River Killer Whales Swim Club.

Chocolate Easter eggs – left by you-know-who (pictured left) – lie in the grass at Robert Ostler Park, as hun-dreds of kids took part in the goodie hunt.

A floatplane landed on the grass at the Campbell River Air-port on Saturday.

The de Havilland Otter was coming to the airport for main-tenance but was not equipped with wheels. The airport staff used the fire trucks to hose down a section of grass to use as a runway, and the aircraft was landed successfully. The plane was flown in from Granada, Nicaragua and will be fitted with wheel gear at Sealand Aviation before it con-tinues on to Dease Lake.

Landing on the grass with floats is not that unusual, but it has never been done at the Campbell River Air-port. It is commonly done when the aircraft

are being switched from floats to wheels. The secret to a good landing is wet grass, and the airport staff were happy to make that happen.

Bill Alder and Greg Koopman from Sealand Aviation used a float-plane cart to move the Otter to the Sealand Aviation hangar. Pilot Dave Crerar of Ver-non, and co-pilot Neil Mueller of Dease Lake were glad to be back in Canada after a journey that took 30 hours with 3 stops.

Sealand Aviation staff were in Nicara-gua for over a month preparing the Otter for the flight. They needed to inspect the aircraft and install additional fuel bladders for the long flight legs of

the journey: up to 10 hours between stops. The preparation of the aircraft took three days, but it took weeks more to get approval from the Nicaraguan authorities to buy fuel for the plane.

Aircraft from all over the world land at the Campbell River Airport. Most bring tourists who come for the fishing and fish-ing lodges in the area. Many aircraft come for maintenance. Cur-rently, at the Sealand Aviation hang ars, along with the Otter from Nicaragua, there are aircraft from Calgary, Anchorage, Ketchikan, Wrangell, Yakutat, Seattle, Victo-ria, and Port Hardy.

The city is paving the way for electric vehicles.

City council gave first three readings last week to a bylaw that, if adopted, will allow Campbell Riverites to drive electric vehicles on city streets.

The cars, also known as Neighbourhood Zero Emission Vehicles, are touted as environmen-tally friendly for their low emissions output. Instead of running on gas, the cars are battery-powered and compact.

Stanley Elliott, the president of Campbell River Electric Wheels, brought the vehicles to council’s attention last September. At the time, he had just received a brand-new electric car that he was itching to sell.

But there was a road

block in Elliott’s way – the cars aren’t legally allowed on Campbell River roads.

Elliott sold council on the benefits of a bylaw similar to ones already in place in Tofino, Oak Bay, Esquimalt and Qualicum Beach.

“These cars will reduce the city’s car-bon footprint dra-matically,” Elliott said. “There’s a large amount of driving that can be done and it will save people a boatload of money.”

City staff agreed with Elliott, but not without some reserva-tions.

Drew Hadfield, the city’s transportation manager, acknowl-edged that Neighbour-hood Zero Emission Vehicles can not exceed 40 kilometres per hour as they lack safety fea-tures such as air bags, ABS, and shock absor-bent body panels.

Hadfield said the Island communities that allow the vehicles indicated they were only aware of one or two vehicles in their respective communi-ties and that they had not posed any prob-lems.

Still, Hadfield said the RCMP had some concerns.

“The concern locally is that these vehicles may disrupt the flow of traffic in the com-munity and cause com-plaints to the RCMP and city hall related to their inability to travel at the posted speed limit,” Hadfield said in a report to council.

However, Hadfield noted the proposed bylaw restricts those vehicles to roads that have a speed limit of 50 kilometres or less.

“This would limit the vehicles to the central part of the commu-nity and would restrict

them from crossing or travel on any provin-cial highways as the bylaw would only be in effect for roadways within the care and control of the city,” he said.

Instead of filling up at the pumps, the car’s battery is set on a charger for around six hours.

Elliott said one charge, in ideal con-ditions, can last for 76 kilometres.

If the car is travelling up a lot of hills or is driven in cold weather, the temperature of the battery changes and the charge will last for 46 kilometres.

The battery can last anywhere between four and eight years, according to Elliott.

Coun. Ron Kerr said it was his “pleasure to make the motion” to give first three read-ings to the bylaw which was passed by council.

A group of Special Olympic athletes could not have picked a bet-ter night to appear in front of council.

Athletes Nicholas Benner, J.L. Hollywood, Beau Wryghte, Darcy Hutter, Hazen Meade and their coaches Marvin Holmgren and Maureen Brinson were recognized by Mayor Walter Jakeway for the array of medals they brought back from the Special Olympic National Games in St. Albert, Alta.

Meade and coach Brinson spoke to coun-cil last week in front of more than 100 people who attended the Tues-day council meeting to protest against a 13.6 per cent residential tax increase.

Brinson shared how Benner, Hollywood, Wryghte, Hutter and coach Holmgren joined the Nanaimo Tigers floor hockey team and helped the team to a national gold medal.

Then Meade stole the show.

“I got two bronze and one silver,” Meade excitedly explained. “It was my first ever national gold medal.”

Meade, with his excitement and enthu-siasm, endeared him-self to spectators and

councillors alike and received a standing ovation from the coun-cil chambers.

Taxpayers behind the large turnout com-mented on the moment on Facebook.

“Especially good for the Special Olympi-ans,” reads the Camp-bell River Tax Revolt page.

“That standing ova-tion for their efforts and wins was spec-tacular and very well received.”

Meade, a snowshoer, won his gold medal

in the 1,600 metre event (in -17 C degree weather) with a time of 8.28, breaking the record for the fastest time in Canada.

Meade followed up that performance with a silver medal in the 400 metre and a bronze in both the 800 metre and the 4x400 metre men’s relay.

But that wasn’t all, as Meade, arguably, saved the best for last.

“There was even more exciting news,” Meade gushed.

“I was picked to go to

Team Canada.”That means Meade

will represent Canada at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Seoul, Korea in Janu-ary 2013.

He will be the fourth Campbell River athlete to represent Canada in a world games.

“It takes a commu-nity to to make this happen,” said Brin-son.

“I would like to say thank you to (the) ath-letes...for continuing to make us so very proud.”

EDITOR: Alistair [email protected]

The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology wants children to move more and sit less, essentially, so they won’t become fat.

The group wants them to grow up healthy and this past week released what it says are the first guidelines for the ‘early years’. Not surprisingly, they call for less screen time – TV, lap-tops, iPods and smart phones.

No doubt kids today spend a lot of time staring a such screens – watch-

ing videos, playing games, browsing and texting. But many are also active – walking to and from school,

playing sports, taking part in track and field, martial arts or dance. They ride bikes, run and skateboard.

Still, many are overweight.The main reason isn’t so much screen time as what

they put into their bodies: sugar and fat. And it’s not just pizza and pop, hamburgers, chips or cookies.

So-called sport drinks can contain as much sugar as a slushee. Specialty coffees and hot chocolate are loaded with calories.

We consume such products despite healthy eating programs devised and promoted by our provincial gov-ernment, even though we know better. We do so out of convenience and because many items that aren’t

healthy taste good. So have a little, not a lot – and not often. Buy more fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean meats. Grow lettuce and berries in pots on your deck. Turn off the TV, the video game console, take away the iPods and cellphones. Cook and eat together, as a family, even if only once or twice a week. It’s a good habit to get into.

People are busy, but they can also be lazy. Start by set-ting a good example for your kids, and hopefully they’ll develop the healthy habits the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology so desires.

All it takes is will. Consider it a gift – their health.– Black Press

Give kids the gift of healthOur ViewOur View

Plain brown envelope puts me in my place

We say: Hopefully we can all develop healthy habits

It was one of the strangest pack-ages I’ve ever had dropped off to me at the office. And the funniest.

A plain brown envelope adorned with the name and address sticker of Doug Robson. If you don’t know Doug – and I don’t – he’s the council critic with a penchant for the dramatic and he didn’t disappoint me with his creative commentary. You may have heard of Doug and his pointed com-ments for city councillors who dare to spend a penny of the taxpayers’ hard-earned income. Last year he brought a golden shovel to make his point for city councillors.

Last week, he was one of only two tax hike protestors who took council up on its invitation to address them.

Needless to say, he did not approve of a 13.6 per cent tax hike. Then as he walked away from the microphone he quipped that in the good old days they used to be allowed to throw fruit at them.

It’s too bad because the protest was going so well. Up to that point, peo-ple were successfully demonstrating their opposition to the tax hike peace-fully, politely and poignantly, includ-ing Doug. None of the “not-only-are-you-wrong-but-you’re-stupid,-to-boot” kind of harassment of people on the other side of an argument that we hear all too often in community forums.

Reporters heard his comment and reported it. I had the audacity to

write an editorial that included the suggestion that this was an unseemly aside for such a respectful protest.

On Monday a package arrived, hand-delivered. Inside was a cov-ering letter cc’ed to the mayor, the three new city councillors, my coun-terpart at the Courier-Islander and a one Brian Robson, a relative of the offended, I can only assume.

The brief letter stated that “On April 7, 2012 and April 8, 2012, I (Doug Robson) researched your editorials for the past four years, the period beginning April 4, 2008 and ending April 7, 2012. I have compiled 50 pages (attached) of all your Good, Great, and Outstanding editorials for the above period.”

Clipped to the letter were 50 blank sheets of paper.

Oh, the pain. Oh, that stung. Oh, way to force me to see the light.

I guess he showed me, by golly.You gotta hand it to him, Doug has

a flare for the dramatic. I had a good laugh over that one. I can’t wait to see what he sends me for writing this col-umn. Doug’s critique of my writings has inspired me to bear down and be a better writer. No, a better person. .

I guess Doug’s demonstration is his way of saying that he remains con-vinced he is entitled to make to make callous and mildly threatening com-ments in our municipal chambers.

I guess, then, we will continue to disagree on that matter.

Most of us don’t want to run the City of Campbell River. We don’t want to go to the meetings, read the volumes of material, and engage in the endless dis-cussions that are part and parcel of municipal poli-tics. Rather than do the work ourselves, we turn it over to others more willing than us, who are prepared to do the work of city councillors. It is not an easy job, and they are entitled to our respect and courtesy.

We choose those who will undertake this work every three years at municipal elections, selecting the six most qualified from among those who are willing to stand for election. We would be foolish to elect council-lors on the basis of what they assert they will actually do, for we, and they, have no way to know the details of the challenges they will face during their three year terms. Rather, we are wiser if we elect those who hold values consistent with our own. By doing so we elect those who will make decisions in a manner consistent with that which we would in similar circumstances.

We elect six councillors, and each of us who votes is entitled to vote for six people. It is a system that ensures

missingsomething?if you are looking or posting, we have what you need local offers from local people,find what you are missing

that the council reflects the electoral wishes of the majority of those who vote. At the last municipal election, four councillors sought re-election, and all four were re-elected.

Those four council-lors are known to us and none of us can real-istically state that we are surprised that they are acting in a manner consistent with their previous time on city council. Contrary to the views expressed so eloquently by Mayor Jakeway when he stated that “Taxpayers

are being screwed.” We are not. The citizens of Campbell River are being represented by those selected by a majority of the voters, in a manner consis-tent with the values expressed and demon-strated by them. That a vocal minority dis-ag rees with their approach does not alter that.

Mayor Jakeway, on the other hand, was not elected by a major-ity of voters. Less than 38 per cent of the vot-ers voted for him. A majority of voters, more than 54 per cent,

voted for the two may-oralty candidates who had previously sat on city council. In some places subsequent bal-loting is employed to ensure that the winner of an election has the support of the major-ity of the electorate.

One wonders i f Mayor Jakeway would have been elected at all were such a system employed, but it mat-ters not; we use the sys-tem we do, and Mayor Jakeway received the largest number of votes for Mayor. As such, he is duly elected, and responsible to all of

the citizens of Camp-bell River.

This is where Mayor Jakeway’s misunder-standing of his role is acute. He states, “The responsibility of the mayor is to support the taxpayers who voted him in.” He is wrong. He is responsi-ble to all of the citizens of Campbell River, including the majority of them who voted for other candidates for mayor, and for council-lors who disagree with Mayor Jakeway.

There are political systems wherein a leader is beholden only

to a minority of the population, but they are not called democ-racies.

P e r h a p s M a y o r Jakeway is still find-ing his way in a new role. Perhaps he has merely expressed him-self hastily and did not mean the things he said. One can only hope that with time, he will grow into the role of Mayor. If not, it will be a long three years.

The Reverend David Fitzsimmons

A man considered to be one of, if not the most intelligent man this planet has ever produced, Albert Ein-stein, once said “the definition of insanity is repeating an action over and over,but

expecting different results each time.”

Each succeeding council for the last three elections has been facing what is now very apparent, that we no longer have a tax cash cow to pay

for many of the things we have taken for granted for years.

The city of Campbell River has a large ( and well paid) workforce and budget to match which needs to be reduced in accordance

with the drop in tax base.

What we as taxpayers need is council mem-bers who are able to make the needed cuts.

Being on council can be a tough job at the best of times,but these

people obviously want the job.

Please listen to the taxpayers and repre-sent our wishes, not your personal agen-das.

There are rules

All City Councils in B.C. run on a set of rules.

Mr. Jakeway had his say in council, he voted on the budget issue and he lost. Now he is attempting to over-throw the rules. We did not elect him to change the rules or lead revolts on our Council. If he cannot operate within the rules he should resign.

T h o s e wh o a r e unhappy with the tax increase should gather together and come to an agreement regarding the specific services they want reduced or eliminated. That will keep them busy till the next election in three years. These are not easy decisions.

Geoff GoodshipCampbell River

Keep your trash

My thanks to Joan Stevens for writing the letter clarifying the role of a civic mayor. This role does not include trashing the city we all call home.

The negative behav-iour of a small percent-age of the population reflects badly on our city. Whoever gave our

city the 184th rating has obviously never lived here. We have a long list of why this is a great place to live.

Perhaps taxes are lower in Windsor but who in their right mind would want to live there?

We need a strong team on council to get us through these diffi-cult times and for the mayor to say, “I don’t follow rules” and to talk about “revolution-ary management” is unacceptable. Teams have rules and win-ning teams have lead-ers with positive lead-ership skils.

Knowing the facts put forth in Joan’s letter and reading the com-ments made by former Mayors Cornfield and McDonell, Mr. Jake-way would do well to have a close look at the position he has been entrusted with.

A tax revolt will do nothing other than tarnish the reputa-tion of our city. No one likes to pay taxes but if 38 cents a day means we can maintain our services then that is the way it has to be. Letting services slide now will only result in more taxes needed later to pay for the

deterioration that will occur. There is an old adage to be adhered to, “A stitch in time saves nine.”

Dawn PichéCampbell River

Why all the uproar?

What gives with the citizens of Campbell River? Why all the uproar over the prop-erty tax increases?

Did we not have an election last fall where you could have turfed out all past councilors and gone with a group who were willing to make some hard deci-sions? Oh no, we voted in the people who have done nothing to pre-

pare the city for this day and who continue to vote to spend frivo-lously.Everybody knew five years ago that the day was would come when the mill would no longer here and that tax base gone. Why did council and manage-ment not start at that time to start paring down in preparation for the lack of mill tax money? Instead they just went on spending and hiring as if the day was never going to come.

I hear a lot of talk about the increase yet I don’t hear too much about the money com-ing out of the tax reserve. Isn’t that the

same as taking money out of your savings account to pay for your monthly expenses?

Maybe next election the citizens of Camp-bell River will vote for people who are not afraid of making tough decisions.

Tony StubbsCampbell River

Sign petition

Once we vote peo-ple into government, whether municipal, provincial, or federal, we leave it up to those chosen to make deci-sions for us. We vote for people on what they say they will do and not on what they

actually end up doing. You vote for someone because of what they claim their ideals are, and what they promise to do. The problem is that they ultimately have no obligation to follow through on those claims, legally or otherwise. Once you have voted in a council, for example, the coun-cil has three years to make decisions on your behalf. If you don’t like the decisions they end up making? Well then you can wait three years and try again; until that time you are at their mercy.

Maybe we can change this. What I propose is a petition for both

sides. One petition is for increasing the taxes and keeping our standard of city living much the same. The other petition is for maintaining current rates of taxation, and the council directing the city management to build a budget around that. These petitions are located at 674 11th Ave in the CR Con-signments store. The petitions are available for you to sign. If city councillors believe in a democracy, then they will at the very least take the petition results into consider-ation.

What should I have in my fi rst aid kit?There are various types of fi rst aid kits that are on the market and having a well-stocked fi rst aid kit is one of the most important things when rendering fi rst aid. A fi rst aid kit should be clearly visible and well organized so that you can fi nd the supplies that you need in an emergency situation. You should always have your personal protective equipment in your kit which includes multiple pairs of gloves and a face mask/pocket mask in case you are required to do mouth to mouth resuscitation. A fi rst aid kit should have a wide variety of adhesive bandages and sterile gauze for various sizes and types of wounds along with antiseptic wipes for cleaning around the wounds. Being prepared for any type of emergency is the fi rst part of dealing with any emergency situation.

At St. John Ambulance we sell a variety of different fi rst aid kits, including fi rst aid kits for families, WorkSafeBC, and even pets! We also offer a re-stocking service if you have a fi rst aid kit already.

Contact us for more information on fi rst aid kits, fi rst aid supplies and equipment, fi rst aid courses, donating, or volunteering with St. John Ambulance.

I have a horrible time with seasonal allergies about this time of year. Normally I take over-the-counter antihistamines for months but I would like to avoid this. How does naturopathic medicine treat allergies? I recommend the following to reduce allergic responses:a) get tested for and avoid food sensitivitiesb) optimize digestive health, the seat of the immune

systemc) use natural antihistamines like vitamin C and quercitin.Most of my patients who follow this program notice improvement from year to year with their seasonal allergies.

The insurance advertised on TV sounds really inexpensive and say it is guaranteed for life. Why wouldn’t I just buy it?

Insurance Companies are all very different in the products they offer and how they choose to sell those products. Insurance sold on TV often says “no medical exam required”, which usually means the insurance application is underwritten (reviewed) at death. The fi ne print could allow the company to refuse a claim if the insured died of a condition that was present when the insurance was purchased. The most reputable companies in Canada offer all their products through licensed professionals who can properly review your needs and ensure that adequate fi nancial protection will be in place when your loved ones need it the most.

I keep hearing about people having too much invested in RRSPs. Should I keep adding to my RRSP or just invest in non-registered funds?

RRSPs are a good tool for reducing income and increasing your tax refund. However, a non-registered investment portfolio gives you more options at retirement. We often recommend clients use their tax refund to build non-registered assets such as TFSAs. Non-registered investments, when you redeem them, will not increase your taxable income, nor initiate a clawback on your OAS. It can allow you to enjoy a more active retirement because the cash is accessible without tax ramifi cations. The closer you are to retirement, the lower risk investments you should be in however, and they should be structured to be tax effi cient. Once into retirement you may want to restructure again for estate planning purposes. Non-registered investments open up a lot more options in these areas than registered (RRSPs).

Hairballs in Cats When cats groom themselves, they swallow the loose hair that their rough tongue removes from their fur. Hairballs form when this swallowed hair accumulates in the esophagus or stomach. If a cat only swallows a few hairs during a grooming session, these hairs may mix with the other stomach contents and pass right on through. Longer hairs or large amounts of short hair may form clumps that stay in the upper part of the intestinal tract until eventually they cause enough irritation that the cat will regurgitate them up - usually onto your prized carpet or couch. There are a couple of things you can do to lessen the likelihood that your cat will develop hairballs. First, you should groom your cat regularly to remove some of the loose hair. Ideally you should brush your cat daily, but even a weekly brushing will make a difference. Second, you can give your cat a hairball preventative on a regular basis. These products are designed to coat and lubricate the hairs that are in the stomach so that they will pass through the digestive system. Finally, there are some cat foods that are said to help prevent hairballs. They may be a worthwhile addition to your hairball prevention strategy, particularly if your cat does not enjoy grooming.

Images Off The WebThe Internet has changed many things in our day to day lives. In the area of Graphic Design, it has had a tremendous effect.Now anyone with a word processing program (i.e. MS Word) or page layout program (MS Publisher, Print Shop, etc.) and a connection to the internet, can hypothetically be a graphic designer if they know what they are doing and have an eye for layout and design.The biggest problem, however, are the images and graphics that people “pull off the web” to incorporate into their documents. Just because it looks good on the screen doesn’t mean it will look good in print. All our monitors, from CRT to LED, have an optimized resolution at 96 DPI. That means that if an image is at 96 DPI, it will look good on the screen and you can see it very well. However, when printing anything from a fi le, most printers , from inkjet to commercial copiers, have a minimum optimized resolution at 300 DPI. This means that if you would like to print a document with an image, the image has to be at least 300 DPI at the size the image is being printed at.So, if you are pulling images from the web, make sure that they are at a high enough resolution so when you print them, your images look good.

Birds are fantastic family pets that generally have long life spans and very basic needs. A few of our favorites are Parrotlets, Cockatiels, Budgies and some of the smaller Parrots. If you’re looking for a bird that will interact with you, enjoy sitting with you and very likely learn to talk and do tricks any of the above will suit your needs. Some of the canary and fi nch family are fantastic companion birds that provide beautiful songs but aren’t a bird that you handle. On a sunny day in the store we have several singers vying for the title of best singer.

Needs of birds are very simple. A quality cage such as a “Vision” will help to keep mess in and provide a safe, attractive cage to your new feathered friend. Birds feed on either a seeded diet or pelleted diet with some fresh fruit and vegies daily and fresh water daily also. Cleaning the cage is simple; once a week you wash out the bottom pan, all dishes and perches and put in fresh bedding such as corn cob bedding. Wing trimming for the bird that is handled is a necessity every couple of months for safety, and nail trims when needed. Toys are very important to EVERY bird...it provides the bird with stimulation and entertainment when you’re at work and some toys benefi t the bird with preening. We recommend leaving a TV or radio on for background noise as well.

Birds require sleep...and a lot of it. We recommend covering your bird with a cage cover to black out light for 12 hours at night, and during the day he will still nap as they require about 18 hours of sleep daily! Vision cages have covers made for them that block out light and fi t beautifully.

Adding a bird to the family isn’t always a fi rst thought for a family pet, but in truth is one of the best pets! Low maintenance, almost no odor, and enjoys being with people! There is no better.

Hearing loss can cause tension and frustration in relationships. Many times a loved one with hearing loss claims to hear fi ne - it’s YOU who mumbles! Sound familiar? Situations like these are often due to hearing loss. If undiagnosed and untreated, stress created from hearing loss can have negative effects on the physical and emotional health of all persons involved. On average, an individual takes seven years to accept hearing loss and do something about it. That’s a long time to stress over constant “mumbling” or for others, not to be properly heard! If you think you or a loved one has hearing loss, consider a hearing evaluation. If hearing loss is present, perhaps consider a hearing aid fi tting and rehabilitation. Our next article will give tips on how to communicate effectively with a person suffering from hearing loss.

WHAT IS THE MOST CHALLENGING AGEFOR A DOG? A dog enters adolescence at about the age of 5 months, and doesn’t leave it until 2 and a half or 3, depending on the individual dog. The most challenging age is usually between 8 and 18 months (which is when most dogs are surrendered to shelters). Some dogs pass through this phase with little trouble, but most drive their owners crazy! During this phase, it can be hard for owners to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Many small behavior problems can become large ones, and large ones can get much worse. Dogs learn to repeat behaviors that are successful - including bullying, fearful snapping, stealing off the kitchen counters, escaping, and mouthing, to name a few - until they become perfect.Be sure to keep your dog well exercised daily, both mentally and physically…..teach your dog some simple tricks like shake a paw, sit up, or speak on command. Try and keep his mind busy with all the right things – otherwise you can be sure he’ll make up his own games…..Our favorite saying is “A tired dog is a good dog”.Don’t blame him…..train him!!!

Why is preventative maintenance important? Preventative maintenance is a necessary expense to keep your vehicle in good running condition. Following the scheduled maintenance recommendations in your owner’s manual. Check fl uid levels regularly and changing of the fl uids and fi lters periodically can minimize the risk of breakdowns and prolong the life of the engine, transmission, cooling system and brakes. You need to pay closer attention to your fl uids and fi lters. The most important fl uids of all: motor oil. It not only lubricates the engine, but also cools, cleans and protects it.

When purchasing new furniture, consider the following: What is the purpose & look you want to achieve for your home? If you need a new couch, it can be a large expense so if you like bright colour or want to play with trends you can always let your couch “enhance” the colour or trend in your home rather then “be” the colour or trend. Here at Georgies Signature Home Furnishings we have furniture, accessories, & original paintings to help you achieve the look you want.

What are commonproblems with childhoodmedications? Some parents may forget to have their children fi nish a prescription. If the medication (for example, a pain medication) is to be taken “as needed for pain or discomfort,” you don’t need to fi nish the entire prescription within a set number of days. But with prescriptions like antibiotics, the medication must be fi nished for it tobe effective. Throw away any old prescriptions. If your child doesn’t fi nish a medication, don’t save it for a future illness because most drugs lose their potency after a year. Unused antibiotics should not be used in future infections because you do not know if the new infection would respond to the old antibiotic. Do not use after the expiration date and talk with your doctor before giving old prescriptions to your child. Another common problem is the sharing of medications between siblings. We recommend that no one take a drug prescribed for anyone else or offer prescription drugs to another person, no matter how similar the symptoms or complaints.

How do I start tomatoes from seed?Growing tomatoes from seed takes time and care, but it is not hard, and the results are well worth it.It’s best to have a warm place, or a heat mat, consistently 70 – 80 degrees F. A South facing exposure in a window, or the help of a daylight spectrum bulb, such as a T5 fl uorescent, is ideal.In a tray with inserts, or really any kind of shallow container with a clear lid, place moist starting mix such as Coco Coir, or Pro Mix BX. Sow the seeds carefully a couple of inches apart and cover them with twice the seeds’ thickness in potting mix. Gently and thoroughly water with chlorine free water (let tap water sit at room temp for 24 hours) You may wish to add B Vitamins, such as B Plus, as a general health tonic, as it is excellent in any propagation practice. Remember not to let the mix dry out, but don’t over water either!Once the seedlings have emerged, do not allow them to overcrowd, as they will compete, and become spindly. If lighting is inadequate once they are sprouted, they will also become spindly, so keep light as close as possible. Harden the seedlings off gradually, starting with venting the domes, and making sure humidity isn’t too high.Once the plants are a 1/2 inch or so high, you may apply a weak solution of plant food, such as Canadian Plant Food Tomato Formula 6-10-8. As the plants grow, so do their feeding requirements, so higher concentrations of good quality nutrients are necessary.

If I give a Power of Attorney, can my attorney spend my money however he or she would like?

Short answer, No. The attorney is required to act in the best interest of the adult. When managing the fi nancial affairs of the adult (POA maker), the attorney must give priority to meeting the personal care and health care needs. An attorney cannot frivolously spend the adult’s money. The attorney’s responsibility is to make sure that the adult’s money is spent in a responsible manner. The attorney must not dispose of a property or asset that is a specifi c gift in the adult’s Will. The attorney is also required to keep the adult’s personal effects available to the adult. Further, the attorney must involve the adult in the decision making related to their fi nancial assets.

My bathroom is small and outdated, how can I spruce it up?

With such a small footprint to your bathroom there is no point in reconfi guring it. Your vanity is still in good shape - just outdated. We can reface the vanity and build a custom oversized medicine cabinet to hang above your toilet. We will put textured glass in the cabinet for a lighter appearance. Using additional texture to create interest, we will install a pebble backsplash and a stone-look high-def laminate countertop. Since curved shapes suit small spaces better we will install a round sink and faucet with an oval pivoting mirror. We will fi nish with a soft grey on the walls to make them recede. To see the before and after of this bathroom, go to the Design House BC website’s portfolio section.

Since having an eye operation, my husband can’t seem to get enough light from any reading lamp. What is the strongest light I an get for him?

Actually, the key to a good reading light has more to do with the type of light than it does with the amount of light. It’s a scientifi c fact that the human eye functions best under Natural Spectrum light. Natural Spectrum virtually duplicates daylight. While halogen is a pretty good reading light, it is very low on the colour spectrum and isn’t nearly as easy on your eyes as Natural Spectrum. Come into our store and we will show you how much clearer reading looks under NaturalSpectrum light.

Question: I’m thinking of buying a home, why should I use a realtor when its time to buy?

Now is a good time to buy real estate. With the very low interest rates, lots of choices with the amount of available homes on the market, and sellers are competing for a sale in a buyer’s market. I can explain my full marketing plan that will sell your home and how you will benefi t from doing this. I can also help you if you want to downsize, upgrade, invest or relocate in Canada.

When familiarity breeds contempt, peo-ple vote to reject the familiar and see what happens. Or as one radio talk-show caller summed up his deci-sion to climb on board the B.C. Conservative bandwagon, he knows two things about leader John Cummins: “He’s not Adrian Dix and he’s not Christy Clark.”

Cummins has about a year to show he’s earned his rising poll numbers.

So let’s get to know Cummins a bit bet-ter. He’s 70, and has an 18-year record as a Refor m-Alliance-Conservative MP. His Ottawa days are mainly remembered for battling treaties and aboriginal-only fisheries, and for being the first Reform MP to take the MP pen-sion. That pension pays him about $100,000 a year. Another legacy of Cummins’ federal record is his support for the harmonized sales tax. He supported Con-servative legislation to enter into HST deals with any province.

Cummins said B.C. could have brought in

the HST at a lower rate. C u m m i n s a l s o

endorses the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipel ine to Kitimat. He applauds the federal gov-ernment for m o v i n g t o place limits on submissions t o f e d e r a l environment hearings.

The April 19 by-elections in Port Moody-Coquitlam and Chilliwack-Hope offer a chance for the B.C. Con-servatives to present

policy alternatives. So far they’re against gas taxes, against a second Metro Vancouver gar-

bage incin-erator, and in favour of f ixing the “catch and release” jus-tice system. C u m m i n s will be going door to door in the Lower M a i n l a n d

by-elections. He offers a telling anecdote about the last time he was door-knocking in Port Moody. The B.C. Lib-

erals have suggested the B.C. Conservatives chose Christine Clarke as their candidate to capitalize on the pre-mier’s name recogni-tion. That wasn’t what Cummins and his pre-viously unknown can-didate found. “She’d say hi, my name is Christine Clarke, and the doors would close rather quickly,” Cum-mins said. Now she identifies herself as the B.C. Conservative can-didate, then gives her name.

Starting your seed-lings from scratch is not as tough as it sounds.

If you have packages of seeds left over from last year’s planting, tuck them in the fridge for a few days.

That helps t h e s e e d s to complete the dormant cycle.

When seed p a k s h av e sat in stor-age for a year or two there is no sure way to tell whether they are going to germinate.

Now, here’s a trick I learned from local gardener guru, Lance Klaasen.

Sprinkle seeds on damp cloths or paper towels.

Cover with moist cloths and leave in a warm place such as the kitchen counter top.

Make sure the fab-ric stays damp and in a few days you should have tiny sprouts peeking out from their shells.

If there is no sign of life you might as well discard the old seeds and start fresh with new paks.

However, if you are fortunate you’ll have lots of sprouts.

The next step is t o t r a n s -fer the seed-lings into p r e p a r e d trays or car-tons filled with potting soil and ver-miculite.

I u s e tweezers to very gently transfer the

sprouts. To avoid buying con-

tainers, use milk cartons split in half, length-wise.

They make very effective starter trays.

Now, place trays on a sunny window sill for the next month while you’re waiting for the outside soil to warm.

If your windows don’t have plenty of daytime light you may need a grow lamp.

Tips for first time or novice gardeners

who may have limited space on their patios or pocket yards: get an early start with plant-ing leaf lettuce, aru-gula, chard, mizuma and spinach as they don’t require full sun and definitely don’t like hot weather.

If you are limited to a couple of large pots on the deck, you can have salad type veg-gies growing all sea-son long – they thrive in partially shaded areas.

Always have more starter plants on the go so that as you har-vest your crunchy crop you are ready to fill the empty spaces with more veggies from the grow trays.

The Garden Diva, Chelsea Holley, who started the commu-nity garden on West-gate Road, would like to hear from residents with unused back-yards. She has a list of people with no yard space who would love to garden in someone else’s unused spare ground. Call Holley at (250) 926-0279.

Campbellton resi-dents and business owners who say their neighbourhood is being “neglected”, have caught the city’s attention.

City staff will look at the feasibility of work-ing with Campbellton property owners to clean-up and beau-tify the area, within a Neighbourhood Action Strategy. Staff will also report back to council with a timetable and a budget for the initia-tive.

The strategy was rec-ommended at last Tues-day’s council meeting by coun. Ron Kerr, the liaison to Campbellton First – a lobby group for improvements to the northern part of town.

“This is an oppor-tunity to support the community of Camp-bellton which has been overlooked for far too long,” Kerr said. “The businesses and resi-

dents of Campbellton started last year with investing in Camp-bellton, during the election campaign, to bring attention to the deficiencies in their neighbourhood. This initiative has resulted in increased commu-nity pride.”

Since Campbellton First formed last fall, the community has hosted a neighbour-hood block party and conducted several com-munity clean-ups.

The group collected membership fees ($10 for residents, $20 for businesses) but those have long since been spent on sprucing up the neighbourhood.

The community has bonded over a need to improve the com-munity. Jim DeHart, a Campbellton business owner and one of the founders of Campbell-ton First, said there are very little curbs and sidewalks and there are signage, lighting and safety issues.

Ted Arbour, owner of Econo Ezy Box Stor-age, said Campbellton has been overlooked by the city in the past.

“Campbellton is so badly neglected by

the city, i.e. potholes,” Arbour said last fall. “When compared to Willow Point – what an extreme difference.”

Brian Shaw, who re-located his Canaccord business to Campbell-ton last year, appeared before council last October to appeal for help from the city.

“Campbellton has a special character and it should be main-tained and nurtured,” Shaw said. “It is the entranceway to Camp-bell River and we want to work with you as a committee, as an asso-ciation.”

Shaw, on behalf of Campbellton First, also asked council for $40,000 to conduct a revitalization plan.

But Kerr’s recom-mendation last week didn’t specify a dollar amount.

“Economical ly I know this is not the time for projects but this would be a small investment that could lead to empowerment for the Campbellton community,” Kerr said. Kerr said the strategy would not involve a lot of money but rather a lot of community effort.

Attention for CampbelltonNeglected part of city gets some action

Time to get your bike out of storage? Are you ready to hit the

roads or the trails? Will you be riding during Bike to Work Week (May 28 – June 3)? Is your bike safe?

The City of Campbell River Recreation and Culture Department is offering two great bike repair and main-tenance sessions on April 18 and April 25 from 6:15 to 8:15 p.m. to help get you ready for the road or trail.

The first session covers a pre-ride check; how to clean and lubricate your bike; minor maintenance and how to repair a flat.

The second session shows you how to deal with prob-lems while out on a ride – like how to fix a flat when you’re out of patches.

The cost is only $10 per ses-sion. You can attend one or both.

The classes are taught by Dan Clements at Outdoor Addictions (1980 Island High-way). Clements has more than 20 years experience as a bike mechanic. This class is ideal for ages 14 and up.

Learn how to make your ride a safe one. Space is

limited, so please register in advance at either the Sportsplex or the Community

Centre. For more information call

250-923-7911.

Spring is coming – time to tune up your bike

Dan Clements (left) is ready to pump your tires or teach you what-

ever else you need to know to get your bicycle ready for spring at

A change in the property assess-

ment value of the defunct Cata-

lyst Elk Falls pulp mill is going

to result in a 2012 tax revenue loss

to Campbell River in the range of

$1.8 million, City Manager Andy

Laidlaw said Tuesday.

If that loss was transferred

directly to residential taxpayers,

they would be required to pay 12

per cent more in property tax this

year, Laidlaw estimates.

But Campbell River Mayor Wal-

ter Jakeway is determined there

will be no property tax hikes for

homeowners this year.

In an interview prior to the

Catalyst notification from the BC

Assessment Authority (BCAA) he

said: “My personal intention is to

have a zero per cent tax increase

in 2012. That’s my personal goal

and I’m sure I can bring a few

other councillors along with me

without having to cut services too

badly.”The BCAA announced Tues-

day that the equipment removal

at the former Catalyst Elk Falls

pulp and paper mill means it

no longer meets the legislative

requirements for a major indus-

trial property.

“This will result in a decrease

of approximately $45 million dol-

lars in the major industry classi-

fication,” says BCAA Vancouver

Island Regional Assessor Bill

MacGougan.The city manager set the stage

Losing a pet is a devastating experi-ence. BBB of Vancou-ver Island warns pet owners to be wary of scammers that defraud heartbroken pet owners, who have publically advertised the loss of a pet.

The Pay-Me-First Scam: In this scam the pet owner receives a phone call from a person claiming that they have the lost pet in their possession. This person asks that the reward money be sent to them before they return the pet. If the pet owner refuses, they will often threaten to hurt the pet in order to pres-sure the pet owner into sending money. Once the scammer receives the money, they are never heard from again.

The Truck Driver

Scam: Someone claiming to be a long-haul truck driver tells you that he came across your pet while on his route. He then asks you to send him money so that he can send your pet back to you, or he may ask you to wire him money to board your pet until he can send your pet back with another truck driver who’s heading your way.

The Tag Team Scam: You receive a call from someone who says that they think they have your pet. After talking to you for a while and getting information about your pet, they apologize and say that they’re sorry, but it turns out that it’s not your pet after all. They then give all the information about

your pet to a partner. This is a set-up -- in a short time, the scam-mer uses the informa-tion received about your pet only to have a second person call and claim to have found your pet who will try collect any reward money in advance.

The Airline Ticket Scam: In this scam, someone calls and claims that your pet somehow ended up in another province. They ask you to send money for a kennel and an airline ticket and they’ll ship your pet back. Once the pet owner sends the money, the scammer walks away with it, leaving the owner without their pet and less money in their bank account.

BBB provides the fol-lowing tips to prevent falling victim to a pet

loss scam:1. If you must place

an ad, include only essential information. Refrain from provid-ing information about unique markings or physical attributes.

2. If you get a call from someone who claims to be out-of-state, ask them for a phone number where you can call them back. Scammers typi-cally do not want you to know any of their personal information.

3. If a caller claims to have your pet in their possession, ask them to describe something about the pet that wouldn’t be visible in pictures, which may have been posted.

4. Never wire money to anyone you don’t know. This is a com-mon thread in many types of scams.

Be wary of lost pet scams

Take a walk on the wild side, create a

piece of art inspired by nature, and get on board for an exciting ocean rowing expedi-tion. National Wildlife Week has begun.

“It’s our 50th anni-versary and we want everyone to connect, create and celebrate,” says Wade Luzny, CEO Executive Vice-Presi-dent of the Canadian Wildlife Federation. “Through the CWF Get to Know Contest, the CWF Walk for Wildlife and the CWF Salish Sea Expedi-tion we are taking a collective approach to challenge nature deficit disorder and reconnect youth with the outdoors.”

The CWF Get to Know Contest inspires youth to get outside, get active, and “get to know” their neigh-bours of other species. Open April 8 to July

16, the contest invites youth to submit origi-nal works of art, writ-ing, photography, vid-eography and music inspired by their wild neighbours. The goal is be as creative as possible. The launch of the contest coin-cides with National Wildlife Week (April 8-14) and the launch of CWF’s Walk for Wild-life, a national cam-paign encouraging people to explore the natural spaces that surround them, then log their kilometres at WalkforWildlife.ca.

To make an even bigger impact, CWF is also sponsoring OAR Northwest’s circum-navigation of Van-couver Island aboard the world’s most tech-nologically advanced ocean rowboat. The CWF Salish Sea Expe-dition will feature streaming video and blog entries so the public can follow the

crew virtually every stroke of the way.

The rowers may encounter a fury of sea foam, giant waves, bone-chilling tem-peratures, and dense fog. Additionally, coastal navigation will demand vigilance in the face of sleep depri-vation as the athletes row in two hour shifts, two rowers at a time, for 24 hours a day. The purpose: to engage youth and support marine conservation.

As the public follows the expedition online, they will be inspired to get outside and connect with nature. Youth that transform their outdoor experi-ences into art and enter the CWF Get to Know Contest will have the opportunity to win great prizes including: having their artwork featured in CWF’s WILD Maga-zine, the 2013 CWF Get to Know Calendar, or

the Wildlife Habitat Canada 2013 Youth Conservation Stamp; attending the week-long Art & Nature Camp hosted by Parks Canada at Point Pelee National Park; art packs from Opus, digital cameras from Panasonic, books from Scholastic; and more.

CWF Get to Know Contest launch events will take place at more than 20 sites across Canada. Two of the west coast contest launches will even feature appearances by the OAR North-west expedition crew, which includes Cana-dian Olympic Gold Medalist Adam Kreek. A complete list of launch event locations is available at GetTo-Know.ca/Events.

“We’re pulling out all the stops,” Luzny says. “We can’t afford to sit on the sidelines and watch people lose touch with our wild

species and spaces. We have too much to lose, and everything to gain. CWF may be 50, we’re not too old to try something new to encourage steward-ship.”

About the Canadian Wildlife Federation

The Canadian Wild-life Federation is a national, not-for-profit charitable organiza-tion dedicated to fostering awareness and appreciation of our natural world. By spreading knowledge of human impacts on the environment, sponsoring research, developing and delivering education programs, promoting the sustainable use of natural resources, recommending changes to policy and co-operating with like-minded partners, CWF encourages a future in which Canadians can live in harmony with nature.

For more information visit CanadianWild-lifeFederation.ca.

About the Get to Know Program

For 13 years, the Get to Know Program has connected hundreds of thousands of young people with nature by encouraging them to “get to know” their wild neighbours. Founded by Robert Bateman, the program provides youth with direct, hands-on learn-ing opportunities through cutting-edge educational initia-tives based on current research and devel-oped in conjunction with leading educa-tors. The Get to Know Program envisions a continent-wide shift in thinking towards an understanding that conserving biodi-versity is our shared responsibility. New to the CWF Get to Know Contest this year: the

Rivers to Oceans gal-lery and the music category! For more information visit Get-toKnow.ca.

About OAR North-west

Founded in 2005, OAR Northwest con-nects with partners to reach its expedi-tion and program goals, while propel-ling youth, commu-nity members and businesses to their own extraordinary achievement. The crew for next two CWF expeditions, includes a circumnavigation of Vancouver Island and a mid-Atlantic crossing. The CWF Salish Sea Expedition launched April 11 in Vancouver and con-cludes in Vancouver near the end of April.

The Campbell River Arts Council invites the community to celebrate ‘Sybil Andrews Day’ on April 19 at the Willow Point Cottage, 2131 South Island Highway.

Declared by the City in 2007, April 19 is officially Sybil Andrews Day.

Bor n in Bury St. Edmunds, England, April 19, 1898, Andrews was a graduate of the Grosvenor School of Art, an institution world famous for its promotion of Futur-ism. Andrews was an early practitioner of linocut printing, a controversial medium championed by the Grosvenor School. She moved with her hus-band Walter Morgan to Campbell River in 1947, where she lived up until her death in 1992. She taught art and music in her home for many years.

Today her linocut prints are sought after internationally and have reached record prices. The

Sybil Andrews Cottage was the first property on Campbell Riv-er’s Heritage Registry. On April 19, beginning at 1 p.m., the Sybil Andrews Heritage Society will host the community at the cottage.

The children’s choir of Ecole de Monde will perform from 1:15-1:45 p.m. Andrew’s student Richard Calver, also an internationally recognized artist, will present a talk at 2 p.m. that focuses on the linocut print Fleece (shown, left). Currently in the Museum at Campbell River’s collection,

this 1986 print features a sheep shearing scene from the Hudson farm in 1961. Calver will offer insights into Andrews’ style and working method.

The day will also feature chil-dren’s art, free coffee, tea and cake. The mayor will cut the cake at 3 p.m. Call the Arts Council at 923-0213 for more information.

Celebrate Sybil AndrewsDo you yearn to paint

in the great outdoors? Are you wondering how to prepare for ‘plein air?’

Renowned ar tist Brian Buckrell will answer all your ques-tions at a workshop called ‘Preparing for Plein Air’ at the Camp-bell River Art Gallery Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29. ‘Plein air’ means outside, and for many artists, work-ing outside is enticing, but daunting too. Buck-rell’s workshop will take place indoors and will give artists all the information necessary to paint outside.

Buckrell is a mem-ber of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Landscape Artists International and the Society of Canadian Artists. He has won

numerous competi-tions and awards and exhibits across Can-ada. He particularly loves the challenge of painting scenes on location and his works are reflective of his love of the outdoors,

travel, agriculture and rural communities. For more information about Buckrell, visit www.brianbuckrell.com.

Day one of the work-shop will focus on equipment and sup-

plies. Participants will review the key ele-ments of composition to create effective and interesting work under the conditions found in painting outdoors. The second day will feature hands-on planning and decision-making, work-ing from projected images, then creating small ‘plein air’ paint-ings – simulating the challenges of working on location.

The cost for the ‘Pre-paring for Plein Air’ workshop is $250 for members of the CR Art Gallery and $260 for non-members, and includes HST and lunch. For more infor-mation, please contact the Campbell River Art Gallery at 250-287-2261, [email protected] or visit www.crart-gallery.ca

Artist Brian Buckrell loves the challenge of painting

on location. Learn more at his Preparing for Plein

Air Workshop April 28 and April 29 at the Campbell

River Art Gallery.

Levins, from Black Creek, took gold in the 8K with a 24:04.13 time, six seconds ahead of runner-up Christopher Landry (24:10.61) of the United States.

The March 17 race was run on the Savan-nah in Queens Park under hot skies with a strong breeze. Tem-perature at the start of the junior women’s race at 3 p.m. was 34C but cooled slightly by the time of the senior men’s race at 4:30 p.m.

Right from the start, the USA used team tac-tics and set the early pace from the front with five American

runners in the lead. T h ree Canadians, Levins, Barry Brit and Sam Pawluk, hung at the back of the pack, with Saheed Khan, Colin Fewer and Van-couver’s Jerry Ziak (former G.P. Vanier track star) about 20 to 30 metres back through the first 4 km.

Levins looked far more comfortable as the race progressed and seemed to find more strength on each of the four laps, con-tent to stay behind, yet with, the Americans.

In the final 2 km, Levins matched the surge of USA’s Chris Landry while the rest of the American team and Britt became strung out a long the back part of the course.

In the final 200 metres, Levins took the lead for the final time and put on an impressive finishing kick to win in a time of 24:04.13 over a fad-ing Landry.

The U.S. rounded out

the top five to win the team title, but Levin’s performance and top-10 finishes by Britt, Khan and Fewer helped Canada place second in the team race, 49 points ahead of third-place Jamaica. Ziak finished 11th in 23:30.07.

Three weeks ear-lier, Levins won dual NCAA All-American awards for his top-five finishes in the 3,000-metre and 5,000-metre events in the NCAA National Indoor Track and Field Champion-ship in Boise, Idaho. Levins’ performances in the events helped SUU finish 15th in the nation in indoor track and field.

Levins backed up a fourth-place finish in the 5K with a third-place finish in the 3K. He said he couldn’t have ran any better.

“I finished higher than I was supposed to and finally got on that top-three podium,” he said.

SUU track and field head coach Eric Houle said Levins’ perfor-mances were phenomenal.

“To perform and be consistant at this level is what you hope for,” Houle said. “Sometimes more amazing things happen.”

Levins finished the 3K with a time of 7:49.48, just over three sec-onds behind winner Lawi Lalang of Arizona State. Levins ran a 13:38.12 in the 5K, where Lalang was also the winner.

Levins scored 11 points for SUU, putting the T-Birds in a tie for 15th place and just a single point behind BYU. SUU came into the meet ranked 31st in the nation.

Houle said Levins will focus on distance races in the outdoor sea-son and prepare to make another run at the Outdoor National Cham-pionships in June.

Levins said he’ll continue to chase an NCAA title and work toward qualifying for the the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

“I keep finishing better and bet-ter,” Levins said. “I’ve only got two more places to go, and the Olym-pics only come once every four years so I’m going to give it my

all.”Levins was the lone runner

from SUU to qualify for the indoor national championships.

There are generally only 12-16 runners who qualify for each event in the whole nation for Divi-sion I track. Levins qualified for two. Going into the meet, he was ranked 10th in the 5K and fourth in the 3K.

Levins is hoping to break the Canadian 5K record. He is cur-rently sitting at a time of 13:42 and needs to go under a 13:25 to break the record.

Houle said he has never coached a better athlete than Levins.

“He holds every school record from the half mile up,” Houle said. “Only two people in the whole country have qualified for the (5K), the (3K) and the mile. So he’s not only the best ever here at Southern Utah, he’s probably one of the best ever in the country and by far the best athlete this school’s ever seen.”

Levins was not able to compete in indoor competition last year due to him redshirting, but he has been placing higher in outdoor competition last year and higher in cross-country this year.

Extended snowshoe seasonANDREW SCHERCK

SPECIAL TO THE MIRROR

The Vancouver Island Mountain Centre on Mount Washington wants to help as many people as possible “experience the free-dom” of the seasonal duality where sand, flip flops, snow and snowshoes coexist.

The VI Mountain Centre intends on cel-ebrating the late sea-son snow by running a variety of snowshoe-based group programs in May and June.

So why not get a group of 10-40 friends, co-workers or a team together and come up and play in the snow and/or spend a night with us while your mountain bike is in getting a tune up?

You can find the Van-couver Island Moun-tain Centre at the end of Nordic Road across from Raven Lodge and Strathcona Park’s Par-

adise Meadows.The non-profit Moun-

tain Centre provides group accommodation for up to 40 people, full kitchen and dining facilities plus meeting rooms and a Fitness Centre.

It’s a perfect location

to start your outdoor adventure programs or to use as a training base in the 3,500-foot alpine or simply for a restful retreat.

For a description of the various May and June programs visit vimountaincentre.

com or call 250-331-9355 to start planning your next adventure today. For more information e-mail [email protected]

Andrew Scherck is the manager of the VI Mountain Centre.

A change in the property assess-

ment value of the defunct Cata-

lyst Elk Falls pulp mill is going

to result in a 2012 tax revenue loss

to Campbell River in the range of

$1.8 million, City Manager Andy

Laidlaw said Tuesday.

If that loss was transferred

directly to residential taxpayers,

they would be required to pay 12

per cent more in property tax this

year, Laidlaw estimates.

But Campbell River Mayor Wal-

ter Jakeway is determined there

will be no property tax hikes for

homeowners this year.

In an interview prior to the

Catalyst notification from the BC

Assessment Authority (BCAA) he

said: “My personal intention is to

have a zero per cent tax increase

in 2012. That’s my personal goal

and I’m sure I can bring a few

other councillors along with me

without having to cut services too

badly.”The BCAA announced Tues-

day that the equipment removal

at the former Catalyst Elk Falls

pulp and paper mill means it

no longer meets the legislative

requirements for a major indus-

trial property.

“This will result in a decrease

of approximately $45 million dol-

lars in the major industry classi-

fication,” says BCAA Vancouver

Island Regional Assessor Bill

MacGougan.The city manager set the stage
