Café volunteers take care of repairs Instead of throwing out that broken clock, toy, bent bicycle or torn shirt, why not see if you can get it fixed at the Repair Café on Saturday at the Central Library Branch?
It’s amazing what can be made as good as new again by volunteers with a broad range of skills, who are equally capable of mending a holey sweater and getting a toaster to pop again.
“We’ve had all sorts [of items brought in],” said library assistant Kate Rutherford.
“The last [repair café], we had a musician bring in her metronome,which was on the fritz.
“We get lots of fabric repairs. People bring in their dresses that need hemming or need a rip stitched up.”
Run in conjunction with Repair Café Victoria, the café offers the expertise of volunteer seamstresses, woodworkers, furniture experts, electricians, a knot expert and bicycle technicians.
Repairs are done on a drop-in basis and space is limited.
Handy volunteers will staff the Repair Café between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the community room of the Central Library, 735 Broughton.
The Repair Café is free and open to children, teens, adults and seniors.

'I saw a dead baby on the floor' | The London Free Press - London Free PressWednesday, November 23, 2016
Ryker’s lower chest, thighs, genitals and back.
Ryker’s skin was blue and there was evidence of lividity — the pooling of fluids inside the body after death. Perkin ordered an autopsy.
Paramedic Paul Langford testified he and partner Peter Wilson saw Ryker and his bluish-grey colour, without a pulse, and knew there was no chance of resuscitation.
Dumont, standing in the kitchen, was sobbing. “Oh my God. That’s my baby. That’s my baby,” she repeated.
Bakker, Langford said, stood at the back door. Once Ryker was pronounced dead, he went outside and could be heard yelling “this is f---ing bullsh--,” over and over.
Dumont’s half-brother, Jesse Ferreira, 22, testified he was called to babysit the four kids the night before Ryker died.
Dumont had just moved into the townhouse from Sarnia three weeks earlier. That night, before Dumont and Bakker left for a shopping trip to Sarnia, they told him nothing about Ryker’s injuries, Ferreira said. Dumont’s oldest daughter, then 10, told him Ryker had been burned by a hot cup of coffee, he said.
Ferreira said he heard Ryker crying. He went to his crib and found the boy, dressed in only a diaper and obviously burned. “I talked to him . . . I gave him his bubba and he stopped crying,” he said.
Ferreira’s testimony was often confusing and contradictory. He said the couple didn’t return to the house for hours. He never changed Ryker’s diaper, but did give him two or three bottles.
When the couple returned, he said he tried to talk to Dumont about the burns. Later in his testimony, he said he was intimidated by Bakker, but he did tell Dumont to take the baby to a doctor.
After he left, Ferreira said he told his sister and mother about the burns, but no one took the baby to the doctor.

Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News BulletinWednesday, March 27, 2019
Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.
"I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
