Teck and unions reach tentative deal


Sewage line leak leaves no lasting damage


No penalties from Environment Canada

Five-year contract includes wage increase, bonus and pension boost

The city will be clear in the wake of an accidental 4.5-million-litre dump of sewage into the Columbia River in late March, according to the City of Trail’s regional district director. Robert Cacchioni said testing in the wake of the spill on the regional district’s main sewage line on the Old Trail Bridge on March 26 determined that the discharge was “non-deleterious” and posed no major risks

The fruits of a new contract are for the taking for Teck Trail Operations’ two largest unions after the sides reached a tentative collective agreement Friday. Teck and locals 480 and 9705 of the United Steelworkers reached the tentative collective agreement for Trail operations after one month of negotiations that began in earnest April 30. Although some details of the agreement are left to nail down, Doug Jones, president of United Steelworkers Local 480, said the deal was a good one, boding well for its ratification. The tentative deal is expected to carry an 18 per cent increase over five years of the contract, a 12 per cent boost in pension, and a $10,000 signing bonus. “Those are the highlights of it right now but it is a tentative agreement so we really don’t want to get too far into this before we give out the final details,” Jones said. “But those numbers are there.” The contract covers 1,180 people in Local 480 on the production and maintenance side, and 170 people in Local 9705 for the office and technical workers. Jones said the contract should be in place while “big change” takes place to the Teck workforce over the next couple of years. He pointed to the hundreds of people set to retire over the life of the new contract. “So that will be a big change, for sure,” he said. “That will also bring a lot of opportunity for new employees.” The union will schedule a ratification vote to be held over the coming days. No other terms of the agreement will be disclosed until the ratification vote is complete. Some factors that may cause the actual results to vary include difficulties in holding the ratification vote and obtaining union ratification of the tentative collective agreement. The deal follows on the heels of a “really successful bargaining in 2008” for the union’s now expired contract, after a three-month strike in 2005. In February Teck Resources Ltd. posted a record annual profit, as it looked to increase copper production and launch its oilsands operations.

to aquatic or terrestrial life down stream. “There is no indication from Environment Canada or (Ministry of Environment) on potential penalties,” he said in his recent Regional District of Kootenay-Boundary (RDKB) report to city council. In all, the spill cost the city $31,060, including $12,000 for the emergency work, an additional $16,000 for joint restraints, and a bill of $2,600 from the Ministry of Environment (MOE) for staff time. The city coughed up $460 for analysis of the waste discharge.

Never judge a library by its covers New KBRH library could help attract healthcare professionals BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff


The Kootenay Cinch n’ Saddle 4H Club had a good showing on the weekend as it hosted a riding clinic at the Trail Horseman’s Grounds. The clinics included Western and English riding as well as exhibitions on equestrian vaulting as demonstrated by 15-year-old Korynn Weber and Kylee Shukin, 12, of the Nelson Riding Club.

LOCAL RDKB considers claim against Fortis BC FROM PAGE 1 The RDKB is currently investigating the possibility of proceeding with a claim against Fortis BC for damages to the interceptor line on the bridge. However, the clamp’s failure is still unknown, considering there was no normal operation of a pressure main that would result in the separation of a coupling. The regional interceptor pipe that services Rossland, Warfield, Rivervale, Oasis and West Trail is comprised of several sections of steel pipe, held together with a clamp, securing it to the piers of the bridge high above the river. After the leak occurred liquid sewage was re-routed through a bypass valve into the river, while solid waste went into a holding tank. The city sampled the materials that had been going into the river, probably a half dozen times or so over the course of the daylong spill. It was tested for the total suspended solids and biological oxygen demand according to the permit the regional district’s wastewater treatment facility had been given. Alan Stanley, director of environmental services with the RDKB, said at the time the spill was “mostly liquid.” The RDKB also made a motion for staff to contact Fortis BC for pre and post inspection documents and reports on the pipe. Root intrusion Problems with the regional interceptor line at Wellington and Watmough roads in Warfield have caused further sewage spills. Tree roots intruding on the line caused spills of 150 litres at Wellington and 120,000 litres at Watmough in early spring.

Deal similar to Highland Valley FROM PAGE 1 The Vancouver-based company reported a recent profit of nearly $2.8 billion or $4.50 per diluted share on $11.5 billion in revenue for 2011, up from $1.8 billion or $3.08 per diluted share on $9.2 billion in revenue in 2010. Teck ended 2011 with $4.4 billion in cash. Trail Operation’s gross profit for 2011 nearly doubled to $207 million from $107 million in 2010. The deal for Trail was preceded by Teck’s Highland Valley Copper property near Kamloops in February, which provided a four per cent wage increase annually for five years, a $10,000 signing bonus, and improvements to the pension plan. Teck is a diversified resource company in mining and mineral development with major business units focused on copper, steelmaking coal, zinc and energy.


The four pillars of the local Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital’s new third floor library include (from left) Ruth Rochlin, IH library manager for the Okanagan and West Kootenay, Trish Boleen, library technician, Diana Bang, learning services librarian for the UBC Southern Medical Program, and Dr. Cheryl Hume, Integrated Community Clerkships site director for UBC’s SMP.

Library benefits entire community FROM PAGE 1 for all Interior Health staff and the students, it will have spin-off benefits for people in Greater Trail who utilize the hospital. “For the community, this means we can train and attract and recruit people ultimately to the rural areas,” she said. “That’s the whole reason why the distributed education program has been brought down.” The library allows physicians in remote and rural areas to actually feel like they are able to have the same sort of resources as elsewhere, said Dr. Cheryl Hume, Integrated

Community Clerkships site director for UBC’s SMP. The library supports the doctors but it also supports the local medical and nursing staff and other health care staff to keep current, she added, to keep up-to-date with their medical practice. “It means we will take an active role in training medical students that will come back to practice in the rural areas, and that’s part of the initiative here,” Hume said about the pilot project. Rochlin concurred. “People in the more outlying areas need more access to the electronic information

because they have fewer professional colleagues to discuss things with.” The Integrated Community Clerkships (ICC) provides experience for students who are interested in practicing family and specialty medicine in a smaller community like Greater Trail. The ICC program uses an interdisciplinary team approach to medicine, with students exposed to a model of patient care “whereby family physicians work in close collaboration” with a network of specialists. In addition to caring for

patients in a hospital setting, ICC students in Trail look after patients in various ambulatory settings and gain clinical and procedural experience. The costs of the library are embedded in the IHA’s budget for the four regional hospitals — including Kelowna, Vernon and Kamloops — but the KBRH day-to-day maintenance will now be handled by health records staff. Local physicians who have joined UBC clinical faculty and the medical students can also access UBC library e-resources, supported by UBC librarian Diana Bang.

Rural culture attracts provincial trendsetters BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

Officials have been searching for a solution to generating sustainability in rural communities for years, but one woman believes decisions carry more weight if the community has an input. The bi-annual BC Rural Summit is hosting a series of workshops and lectures about growing sustainable rural communities in Grand Forks from Thursday to Saturday. “There’s certainly a role for the federal and provincial gov-

ernment, private sector and business, but if you’re going to keep your community sustainable, the solution has to come from within the community,” said Maureen LeBourdais the manager of the smart planning for communities program at the Fraser Basin Council. The public forum will attract over 150 people from all walks of life—including some city councilors, volunteer organizations and regional directors from Greater Trail. The BC Rural Committees Summit is co-sponsored by the

Regional District of Kootenay Boundary and the BC Rural Network. The BC Rural Network was founded in 2004 to identify problems and find solutions for the complexities that engulf remote communities. The conference includes several workshops and presentations that aim to raise awareness about remote communities within the province. It will cover topics ranging from learning how to apply strategic ideas to hands-on work demonstrate how to reflect areas

of concerns for rural communities from people facing similar problems. “We have everything from education to the food economy, tourism and planning or social enterprise,” said LeBourdais. “There are several different scenes that do emerge from summit to summit because we try to get a wide cross section of workshops.” A keynote address from Selkirk College’s CEO of Angus Graeme focuses on life-long learning based within the community.

PROVINCIAL Premier looks to schools to begin anti-bullying plan THE CANADIAN PRESS VICTORIA - British Columbia students who feel they are being bullied will soon be able to report the behaviour anonymously on a new smartphone application being introduced by the provincial government. Teachers are also being asked to dedicate one professional development day per year to deal with bullying as part of a strategy aimed at reducing the corrosive behaviour, going beyond laws to punish offenders and protect children. B.C. Premier Christy Clark announced a $2 million, 10-point strategy to combat bullying and ensure every child feels safe, accepted and respected. She said the fight against bullying needs more focus on

actions rather than laws that punish the offending behaviour, because laws can’t weed out the root causes of bullying. The ERASE program - Expect Respect and A Safe Education goes beyond proposed amended anti-bullying laws in Ontario and B.C.’s 2007 laws targeting bullying, Clark said. “We are moving well past that and building in education and training tools for folks in schools and resources for parents to make sure they can deal with it to try and raise the profile of it across the province,” said Clark in Surrey where she announced her strategy. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty has said he’s preparing to amend the province’s Accepting School Act to prohibit


Catholic Schools from vetoing student gay clubs. “My advice to Ontario is the legislation sends a message,” said Clark. “It says government and society is concerned about this, but laws do not on their own stop bullying, and we have to do more.” She said her strategy, which is set to be introduced in B.C. schools next September, will lead the country in addressing bullying, with a five-year training program for teachers and community workers that helps identify and address bullying. The plan also includes dedicated safe-school co-ordinators in every school district, stronger codes of conduct for schools and provincial guidelines for threat assessments.


Helicopter wreckage removed from crash site THE CANADIAN PRESS TERRACE, B.C. Investigators are braving dangerous avalanche conditions while removing the wreckage of a helicopter crash in northwestern, B.C.

Three people were killed Friday when the A-Star 350 helicopter went down on Sleeping Beauty Mountain near Terrace. Police say investigators encountered a

small snow slide during the recovery of the bodies Saturday. They say Transportation Safety Board investigators continue to remove wreckage from the crash site. Bailey Helicopters

has confirmed that one of the pilots killed in the crash was 45-yearold Peter Bryant. Police say they have now identified all three men killed in the crash but won’t confirm their identities until next of kin have been notified.

Business owner bugged out THE CANADIAN PRESS PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - An employee of one Prince George pharmacy says the city’s caterpillar problem is so bad that the creatures have actually crawled right into her store. Pharmacy cashier Myrna Kewin says huge caterpillar clusters are the size of footballs and are appearing on local tree trunks. She says the bugs are eating the leaves off trees and locals are complaining about the problem. A city spokesperson was unaware of the problem when contacted Friday, and parks staff were unavailable for comment on the weekend. But nursery store owner Jos Van Hage says it could cost the city more to replace the trees than spray the caterpillars. He says the worst is yet to come and the problem is going to be devastating for the city.

Teacher suspended for giving students zeroes on reports THE CANADIAN PRESS


Bridget, the fictional face of a safe-driving campaign, adorns a billboard in Halifax on Friday. Halifax Harbour Bridges launched the campaign May 14 to raise awareness of speeding, tailgating and texting while driving on the two bridges that span the city’s harbour. The campaign has received mixed reviews.

Driving ads crash with women advocates THE CANADIAN PRESS HALIFAX - Some say she’s a confident, crime-fighting avenger, devoted to protecting drivers in Atlantic Canada’s largest city. Oh, and she does it while looking good in heels. But others say “Bridget� - the fictional face of a sexy, safedriving ad campaign in Halifax - is an offensive stereotype that succeeds only in insulting men and degrading women. In particular, the campaign has crashed and burned with women’s rights advocates, who argue women have for too long been objectified in advertising and the media. “We were quite surprised and disappointed

with the approach,� said Irene Smith, executive director of the Avalon Sexual Assault Centre, a feminist organization in Halifax. “It just seems to me that it’s offensive to many, many women who’ve experienced any form of sexual violence or harassment or been subjected to sexist jokes and innuendoes.� Halifax Harbour Bridges launched the campaign May 14 to raise awareness of speeding, tailgating and texting while driving on the two bridges that span the city’s harbour. Minor fender-benders have been known to snarl traffic and cause annoying backups for the thousands of vehicles that cross the Macdonald and

MacKay bridges daily. At the centre of the campaign’s billboards and banners is Bridget: an attractive young woman with dark, cateye makeup and slightly pursed lips. Smith said the timing of the campaign’s launch - during Sexual Assault Awareness Month - was especially distressing. Her organization has written a letter asking the bridge commission to pull the ads and publicly apologize for “a campaign that sexualizes and uses women as means for the commission’s message.� Halifax Harbour Bridges is a commission of the Nova Scotia government, but receives no funding from taxpayers. The $50,000-campaign

ate Home, RenovYour e, enovate e, R Your Life! Cloverdale Paint Window Coverings Hardwood Carpet Linoleum Laminate Ceramic Tile

was funded by bridge tolls, said communications manager Alison MacDonald. She said the commission wanted to get people’s attention with “a strong, female character� in the same vein as a superhero in The Avengers or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. “We wanted to have a campaign that’s a little humorous, tonguein-cheek, and we also wanted the messages to come from a person and not an organization,� said MacDonald.

EDMONTON - A teacher suspended for giving students zeros says he plans to continue his fight and hopefully spark a wider debate on where caring ends and coddling begins. “This is not the best thing for students, so I decided to take a stand on it,� Lynden Dorval, a teacher at Ross Sheppard High School in Edmonton, said Friday. “These are high school students. These are not little kids. It’s time to become an adult and take responsibility for your own actions.� Dorval, 61, has been suspended by the Edmonton Public School Board for refusing for more than a year to stop handing out zeros for assignments that haven’t been completed. The physics teacher said he knew that his action would lead to an equal and opposite reaction from the board. “I think now that I’ve gone public it’s guaranteed I’ll be terminated,� he said. “I’m embarrassing my employer, not being a good employee. “But I was prepared for that. I have 35 years (in). I can collect my pension.�

they’re not let off the hook by not completing assignments,� he said. “Sometimes just indicating a zero can be interpreted we’re just giving up on you and you’re not worth the effort - and that’s the piece we do not want to see happen.� Dorval said getting kids to make up missed work is a lot different on the front lines. “There’s too much manpower involved,� he said. “Tracking them down is just a huge hassle and even then there’s still no incentive for them to come. “To me (the zero) works incredibly well. I show them what their (overall) mark is with the zero and it’s up to them to come to me.� Dorval suggested it’s really about bottom lines. Schmidt, he said, is gunning for a 100 per cent completion rate in high school within a decade. “To me the principal has decided this is a way of raising the marks, pushing an extra few kids through by inflating their marks by not counting zeros.�

He said he plans to appeal the indefinite suspension by arguing the principal who ordered the no-zero policy was acting beyond his authority. Dorval said things changed a year and a half ago when the principal ordered “out of the blue� that zeros would no longer be handed out. Instead, students who didn’t turn in their reports or write exams would have to make up the work. Edgar Schmidt, superintendent of the Edmonton Public School Board, said principals have been given latitude based on research. The theory, he said, is that a zero doesn’t reflect a student’s knowledge of a course. Missing an assignment may actually indicate behaviour problems or other issues. Schmidt said the more effective method is to get a student to do the work through additional classes, after school or at home. “It’s much better for us to let students know

Thomas Mulcair and the politics of deja-vu


aving been outof-country for several weeks, it takes a few days to catch-up on the very busy Thomas Mulcair. And when one does, the overwhelming sense is déjà vu. It conjures up memories of David Lewis, back when the federal NDP rhetoric was full of “blue-eyed sheiks” and “corporate welfare bums.” Heady stuff, but a trifle problematic. Take all this talk about “Dutch disease,” and how a soaring, resource-driven Canadian dollar is crippling manufacturing. Nothing unusual about a strong dollar To be sure, the dollar is currently strong – for instance, trading a little above par for eight of the last 12 months. But there’s nothing historically unusual about a strong dollar. In fact, it was generally above par from 1952 through 1960, from 1972 through 1974, and again in 1976. Throughout the 1960s, it was consistently above 90 cents. And both the 50s and 60s were good decades

economically, averaging real growth between 6 and 7 per cent per annum. Put another way, a strong dollar has been historically compatible with Canadian prosperity. Indeed, perhaps the real anomaly was the currency devaluation that started in the late 70s, ultimately bringing the dollar down to its 2002 post-war low of 62 cents. No doubt, this was a competitive assist to manufacturers. But it also meant that Canadian families and businesses had to pay much more for any products with significant imported content. Think of it this way. If the dollar were to go from par to, say, 50 cents, then Canadians would need to provide twice as many exports in order to pay for the same volume of imports. Or, if you like, run twice as fast to stay in the same place. Intuitively, that doesn’t seem to be a particularly desirable proposition. In any event, there’s a lot more going on than just the exchange rate. While


MURPHY Troy Media

the share of Canada’s GDP attributable to manufacturing has declined, so too has the relative importance of manufacturing in the United States, Britain, France, Japan, Germany, and Italy. In other words, it’s a phenomenon common to most major advanced economies. In part, this can be seen as a function of development itself. Just as the once dominant agricultural sector became progressively smaller as a proportion of the whole, so too has manufacturing. Increasing productivity – which produces higher living standards – inevitably does that. And then there’s the rise

of the previously underdeveloped world, bringing new competitors into the game. In the 60s and 70s, there was much impassioned talk about the moral imperative to provide “trade not aid.” Well, now it’s happening. Still, although Mulcair’s position is substantively flawed, it’s also politically coherent. For one thing, it’s a neat ideological fit for his party, the federal NDP having a long history of hostility to the oil and gas industry. Plus it plays particularly well in Quebec, which is now the single most important part of the NDP electoral base. And most intriguingly, it offers the prospect of aborting the coalition that Stephen Harper’s Conservatives have painstakingly constructed. By combining a big win in Ontario with overwhelming strength in the West, Harper won a decisive majority last year. But if Mulcair can use the “Dutch disease” to substantially detach Ontario from that coalition, then it’s a brand new ballgame – one which might even produce an NDP government.

And going by the polling-related giddiness of the commentariat, that’s perhaps a very real prospect. But is it really? Mulcair’s honeymoon period Barring some extraordinary development, the next federal election is 3 years away. This leaves ample time for Mulcair’s honeymoon glow to dissipate. And don’t forget the Ed Broadbent boom. For a brief period in the middle 80s, Broadbent’s NDP topped the polls. However, when the actual election came along in November 1988, they were back in third place with just a touch over 20 per cent of the vote. In any event, two recent polls suggest that talk of a Conservative decline may be a tad premature. In May, both Angus Reid and Abacus pegged Conservative support at 37 per cent, exactly the same as in their final pre-election polls last year. It’ll be an interesting ride. Stay tuned. Troy Media columnist Pat Murphy worked in the Canadian financial services industry for over 30 years.

Bridge should be open to pedestrians Good to see Guy Bertrand’s column on May 31 (Old bridge left out of ambitious downtown plan). A month ago when the sewer line, which runs across the old

bridge, broke I’m sure it was not repaired by two guys with a wheel barrow and a screw driver. The equipment used to repair the sewer line probably

weighed about 5 tons. We would just like to walk across the old bridge. Like Guy Bertrand says, put up a sign and use at your own risk. There are just a

few people that want the bridge closed and there are only about 1,000 of us that want it open. The rest don’t really care. John Carter Trail

Two new solitudes – Part 1


here was a time when we talked about the “two solitudes” in Canada, referring to a divide between French and English Canada. Although differences still exist between our two founding cultures, they are now more often celebrated than not. Over the MP ALEX past few years, however, I have seen “two new solitudes” Keeping emerge. Let’s call them “Neo-Conservative” and “Progressive.” Though we may speak the same language, we really do not understand each other. I notice this in the House of Commons, particularly. There are major differences in how these two new solitudes perceive the world and I would like to discuss these over my next two columns. One solitude sees for Canada a role on the world stage that is a significant shift from the values that our country has traditionally represented. The current Conservative government wants

Canada to become a proud military nation that makes major contributions to war efforts in areas such as Afghanistan and Libya. This focus means that our military must be equipped and trained to engage in more combat missions throughout the world, usually at the side of the US in NATO-led missions. The latest military technology, like the F-35 first strike jets, needs to be in House place to fit into this version. The other solitude believes that Canada has lost its leadership role in world peacekeeping and that we should return to our role of working within the United Nations and concentrate on making defence a priority for our armed forces. This change would require that Canada leave Afghanistan and decline other missions with NATO, an organization originally set up in 1949 to protect Europe from communist aggression. Canada should play a greater role as a broker in peace-


ful settlements in the Middle East, Africa and other areas of conflict. Military purchases should provide the equipment to get the job done and keep our troops, and civilians, safe. This past November I introduced a Private Member’s bill to create a federal Department of Peace. Bill C-373 passed first reading in the House of Commons on November 30, 2011. The work of a Department of Peace would be to strengthen non-military means of peacemaking by developing policies and programs that promote national and international conflict prevention, non-violent intervention, mediation and peaceful conflict resolution. Bill C-373 outlines wide-ranging objectives for a Department of Peace that would tackles domestic and international responsibilities in the areas of human security and education. The notion that there can be peace in the world may be a utopian ideal but each generation owes it to the next to make a dedicated attempt to get as close to it as humanly possible.

Canada needs to muster will to ease child poverty An editorial from the Toronto Star Poverty can be tricky to define and quantify. By almost any standards a poor Canadian child is far better off than one living in most other countries. But as Parliament recognized when it vowed to eliminate child poverty by 2000, that hardly frees us from our duty as a rich and caring society to do the best we can for those in need. By the high standard Brian Mulroney’s Progressive Conservative government set in 1989, we are falling sadly short. Almost a generation later the haunting face of poverty in this country continues to be that of a child, the United Nations Children’s Fund confirms. “Canada’s child pov-

erty rate is higher today than when that target was first announced,” a new UNICEF report finds. (The agency defines poverty as living on less than half the national median income.) We now rank a dismal 24th of 35 industrial countries, behind Britain, Australia and much of Europe. And even more disturbingly, our child poverty rate of 13.3 per cent is nearly two points higher than our national rate of 11.4 per cent. We’re failing our kids. While Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government may not care to admit it, others are doing better. That includes rich nations such as Australia, Germany, the Nordic states and Japan. It

also includes Slovenia, Cyprus, Malta and Latvia. In all those places - and more - the child poverty rate is lower than the general rate. Canada’s performance is shabby by comparison. As the United Nations right-to-food envoy pointed out earlier this month, in a report that sparked much Tory indignation, hunger is a reality here. Some 900,000 people relied on food banks last year, 30 years after they sprang up as a stopgap amid the 1981-82 recession. That’s an inconvenient truth for poverty deniers. Meanwhile, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives calculates that Ottawa has forgone $48 billion in revenue over the past decade by cutting

personal and corporate taxes. We don’t lack the means to address poverty if we choose. Reports come and go. UNICEF Canada used this one to ask Ottawa to hike the Child Tax Benefit to an indexed $5,000 a year from $3,485, and to let parents with kids under 18 to retain more earned income from the Working Income Tax Benefit and employment insurance. Good ideas. But more fundamentally, UNICEF urged our politicians to muster the political will to make children a budget priority, giving them “first call” on our resources. At root, we need a change of mindset. Other countries find ways to put the kids first. So should we.

Cancer claims Emmy Award-winning actress THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Kathryn Joosten, a character actress best known as the crotchety, yet loveable, Karen McCluskey on “Desperate Housewives” and the president’s secretary on “The West Wing,” has died. She was 72. Joosten, who had battled lung cancer for 11 years, died Saturday at her home in Los Angeles, her publicist Nadine Jolson said. Joosten “was surrounded by love and humour ‘til the end,” her family said in a statement. “We are laughing through our tears.” Joosten won two Emmy awards for her portrayal of Mrs. McCluskey, who kept a close eye on her Wisteria Lane neighbours on “Desperate Housewives.” The hit show ended its eight-year run on ABC last month with a series finale in which Joosten’s character passed away. Her character’s battle with cancer was a story line in the show. Joosten’s “Desperate Housewives” co-stars took to Twitter to express their condolences. “Rest in peace, she was an amazing woman and a wonderful actress,” Felicity Huffman wrote. Brenda Strong said in a tweet: “Wisteria Lane won’t be the same without you.” Joosten was a psychiatric nurse and single mother in suburban Chicago when she began her acting career at 42. She was an advocate for lung cancer awareness and research and sat on the board of governors for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. Active in animal rights causes, she appeared with other celebrities at a 2008 news conference in Los Angeles to ask the city to abandon a project for a $40 million elephant enclosure at the Los Angeles Zoo.

Actor rose to fame as host of ‘Family Feud’ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Billionaire apologizes to B.C. premier THE CANADIAN PRESS VICTORIA - British billionaire Richard Branson has apologized to B.C. Premier Christy Clark for inviting her to join him for a naked kitesurfing adventure. Branson met Clark last week after the inaugural fight of his Virgin Atlantic airline from London to Vancouver. Later, he issued an invitation on his blog that included a photo of a naked model riding on his back while kitesurfing. Clark said she found the offer disrespectful, and Branson has taken to Twitter to issue an apology, saying the invitation was a joke and no offence was meant. Clark said this is a case of a lighthearted joke backfiring, but she accepts the apology. “Lighthearted jokes often have a place, but I don’t think that this was appropriate,” she said. “Of course, I accept his apology.” She originally turned down the kitesurfing offer with a joke of her own, saying if the invitation is Branson’s best pick-up line, there may be a reason the name of his company is Virgin.

NEW YORK - Richard Dawson brought a saucy, unabashedly touchy-feely style to TV game shows as host of “Family Feud.” The British-born entertainer, who died Saturday at age 79 from complications related to esophageal cancer, earlier had made his mark in the unlikely 1960s sitcom hit “Hogan’s Heroes,” which mined laughs from a Nazi POW camp whose prisoners hoodwink their captors and run the place themselves. But it is as the kissing, wisecracking quizmaster of “Feud” that he will be remembered. The show, which initially ran from 1976 to 1985, pitted a pair of families against each other as they tried to guess the most popular answers to poll questions such as “What do people give up when they go on a diet?” Dawson made his hearty, soaring pronouncement of the phrase “Survey says...” a national catchphrase among

the show’s fans. He won a daytime Emmy Award in 1978 as best game show host. Tom Shales of The Washington Post called him “the fastest, brightest and most beguilingly caustic interlocutor since the late great Groucho bantered and parried on ‘You Be Your Life.”’ The show was so popular it was released as both daytime and syndicated evening versions. And it was quickly validated by “Saturday Night Live,” with Bill Murray in a satirical homage to Dawson as a leering, nasty figure who even slapped one contestant (John Belushi) for getting too fresh. Not that everyone approved. In his classic 1981 cultural analysis “Within the Context of No Context,” George W.S. Trow identified “the important moment in the history of television” as the moment when Dawson asked his contestants “to guess what a poll of 100 people had guessed

would be the height of the average American woman. “Guess what they’ve guessed,” sniffed Trow, harping on the meaninglessness of such an enterprise. “Guess what they’ve guessed the AVERAGE is.” Obviously, “Feud” fans would have feuded with Trow’s dismissive attitude. For one thing, Dawson played the show, and his duties presiding over it, for laughs. On one episode, he posed this question to a contestant: “During what month of pregnancy does a woman begin to look pregnant?” She blurted out “September,” then, too late, realized this was a ridiculous response. All the better for Dawson, who couldn’t stop laughing - or milking the moment for continued laughs from the audience. His swaggering, randy manner (and working-bloke’s British accent) set him apart from other TV quizmasters,

who, more often than not, tempered any boisterous inclinations with defiant smoothness. Not Dawson, who was overtly physical, prone to invading his contestants’ personal space - and especially the women, each of whom he kissed without exception. At the time the show bowed out in 1985, executive producer Howard Felsher estimated that Dawson had kissed “somewhere in the vicinity of 20,000.” “I kissed them for luck and love, that’s all,” Dawson said at the time. One of them he kissed was Gretchen Johnson, an attractive young contestant who came on with members of her family in 1981. She and Dawson began dating, and, after a decade together, they wed in 1991. (Dawson is survived by Gretchen and their daughter Shannon, as well as two sons, Mark and Gary, from his first marriage, and four grandchildren.)

Trail makes room BY TIMES STAFF


Naomi Weber (left) leads Azreal, as Kaylee Shukin and Korynn Weber (right) premiere their equestrian vaulting pairs performance, as the Kootenay Cinch n’ Saddle hosted riding clinics on the weekend at the Trail Horseman Grounds.

TRAIL -- The Trail Smoke Eaters made a bit of elbow room on its roster Thursday announcing transactions that sent four players to new teams. To complete an earlier deal, the Smokies sent forward Taylor House to the Whitecourt Wolverines of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. The 20-year-old House was acquired midway through the 2011-12 season in a five-player deal with Alberni Valley. He scored 4 goals and 14 points in 48 games with Trail. “We’re just trying to move kids on, we got some new kids coming in, and stuff in the works to try to get a little older and a little more experience,” stated head coach and general manager Bill Birks.

Forward Kyle Horsman (94) was also traded to Whitecourt for future considerations. The Sechelt product scored 7 points in 40 games in his rookie BCHL campaign. Meanwhile the Prince George Spruce Kings acquired the rights to 19-year-old forward Adam Fares. Despite a promising start, the six-footfour forward suffered a concussion early in the season and appeared in only 15 games with the Smoke Eaters after being traded from Victoria. He scored 4 goals and 9 points for the Smokies. In another transaction, Trail traded forward Brandon Long (93) to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League’s Battlefords North Stars for future considerations.

Long has potential, he scored 8 goals and 21 points in his rookie BCHL season, appearing in 52 games with the Smoke Eaters. The trades pare the Smokies lineup down to 17 players, including lone goalie Lyndon Stanwood, leaving room to build for the next season. “All three players were great kids for our hockey club,” “At the same time our team gets a little bit older as we re-tool for next season.” Smoke signals: The Smoke Eaters will also be participating in the Kamloops Two Rivers Hockey showcase. The camp runs from June 15-17, and will provide Birks and the Smokies coaching staff an opportunity to scout players they missed in the spring camp.

Horse-riding clinic attracts young vaulters BCHL players ranked BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

The Kootenay Cinch n’ Saddle 4H Club in conjunction with the Nelson 4H Club and the Nelson equestrian vaulters, gathered for a fun weekend of exhibitions and riding clinics at the Trail Horseman Grounds. About 25 participants attended clinics that helped local 4H members improve their skills in Western and English riding, showmanship, and equestrian vaulting, and prepared them for the club’s much bigger and busier stock show in July. “It’s the horsey kids of the Kootenays (that are involved),” said organizer Leah Hope. “We wanted a fun clinic to start getting them thinking of a work ethic because they have to schedule their day, arrange how they look after their horses and how they get to these different (venues.)” One of the highlights of the weekend was the equestrian vaulting exhibition and clinic. A cross between gymnastics and dance on the back of a trotting horse, a combination of strength and grace. “It’s a performance sport for sure,” said equestrian vaulting coach Naomi Weber. Weber coaches the Nelson Riding Club’s equestrian vaulting team that consists of 16 members including vaulters Korynn Weber, age 15, and 12-year-old Kaylee Shukin. “If you have gymnastics experience or dance experience, and you like horses, it’s a great way of pulling it all together,” added Weber. “We do have some people that do it recreationally and build up that confidence to perform it. So we try to work on life skills through the whole discipline of vaulting, so that they come out with being able to be confident, and sure of themselves and (learn) team work.” In competitive vaulting, vaulters compete as individuals, pairs, and teams of three. The vaulting horse is specially trained, and moves in a 15-metre circle, directed by a lunger (or “longeur”), who stands in the center of the circle. The vaulter, horse, and lunger compete as a

team with scores weighted for each performance. “We all get scored together to get a final score, but the weight is placed more heavily on the vaulter, but we all are factored into that,” said Weber. Beginning vaulters compete at a walk or trot and usually on smaller horses, while experienced vaulters compete at the canter on larger breeds. Korynn Weber has been training in equestrian vaulting for seven years and Kaylee for three. “Starting’s not that hard, it’s easier than you think. Once you get up there it gets harder and harder, you have tougher competition and everything has to be perfect,” said Korynn. Both Korynn and Kaylee performed at the grounds, exhibiting a variety of elements including mounts, handstands, tumbling, kneeling and standing moves, and are looking forward to competing. “You meet so many people at competitions, it’s almost more that than the actual competing part that’s fun,” she said. Competing in pairs is even more difficult than singles, for despite the size of the horse, it does get crowded up there, added Korynn. The dynamic duo will unveil their first pairs performance in an upcoming competition in Chilliwack next week. The 4H Club promotes the development of youth through various activities and community events.

Got a sports tip? Tiger charges back to take Memorial Call the sports desk at 250-364-1242 ext 210


DUBLIN, Ohio - Tiger Woods picked the right place to match Jack Nicklaus for career PGA Tour wins, and with a shot that even left Nicklaus amazed. Two shots behind with three holes to play, his ball in an impossible spot behind the 16th green, Woods holed a flop shot from 50 feet away that turned bogey into birdie and sent him on his way to a stunning comeback Sunday in the Memorial. Woods made three birdies on his last four holes for a 5-under 67, matching the lowest score of the final round, and he finished in style. He hit 9-iron to just inside 10 feet, and raised his putter - a pose that Nicklaus made famous for so We offer a powerful range of detailing many years - well before the ball tumbled service tailored to your vehicle into the cup. specific conditions and needs.

Be consistently civil to unstable sister-in-law Dear Annie: My husband’s sister-in-law is not only annoying. She is frustrating. We were friends once and lived together in my in-laws’ house. She has a son, and I have a daughter who is younger. The first time we fought, she began shouting at me, saying that my daughter is the favorite grandchild. She moved out and, after a while, apologized. I forgave her. Then we became work colleagues when I recommended her for a position. I don’t know how it started, but she began making snide comments, saying that I brag about being smart, etc., and that I was badmouthing her. One of our co-workers pointed out that she’s the one backstabbing me and not the other way around. She then told my husband that we were ganging up on her. After that, we didn’t speak for a long time.



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

She apologized again and said we should put everything behind us. I am a forgiving person, so I befriended her. Again. Then one day, I found out she was up to her old tricks, saying nasty things about me and spreading rumors to my husband’s relatives. I can’t avoid her because of family gettogethers. What should I do? -- Had Enough in Tennessee Dear Had Enough: We suspect others are aware of your sister-inlaw’s emotional instability, which will make it easier for you to be in her presence at family gatherings. You don’t need to be chummy

toward her. All that is required is that you be consistently civil and polite. Your husband will appreciate it, and you will score a lot of points with the rest of the relatives. Dear Annie: My husband’s mother recently died, and his sister is very upset with him because he listed her in the death notice as “Miss Jane Doe” instead of “Dr. Jane Doe.” (His sister has a Ph.D.) When my husband apologized, she stated that we always have been disrespectful of her title. Apparently, she is still upset that when she was in our bridal party, she was listed in the wedding program as “Miss Jane Doe.” I told her it never occurred to me that she would want to be listed any other way. After all, my brother, an attorney, didn’t have a J.D. after his name. She was also angry that our invitation to our daughter’s

christening said “Miss Jane Doe.” I was taught that for social invitations, one doesn’t use professional titles. Am I wrong? My husband feels that our apology should suffice, but Jane is still angry. I hate that there is friction between them when they are grieving the death of their mother. What else can we do? -- Frustrated Sister-in-Law Dear Frustrated: Generally, one doesn’t use professional titles for social events, but the overriding etiquette rule is not to offend. Your sister-inlaw wants her title used at all times, so please use it. Her mistake was allowing this to continue without registering her resentment the first time, which didn’t permit you to correct it. Please tell her again that you are sincerely sorry, that it was completely unintentional, and that you promise to use her well-earned Ph.D. from now on.

Dear Annie: “Ready To Settle Down” wants a commitment from her 55-year-old boyfriend who still lives on his parents’ property, uses her car, belittles her in bed, has a bad temper and hangs around with drinkers and dopers.

She needs to follow my rules for dating. These guidelines make the picking and choosing a whole lot easier. Trish’s Four Rules for Dating 1. He/she must not have a criminal history.

2. He/she must be employed. 3. He/she must own his/her own car. 4. He/she cannot live with his/her mother or sleep on his/her best friend’s couch. -Trish

Monday, June 4, 2012 Trail Daily Times


YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Tuesday, June 5, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a tricky day because it’s a fun-loving day, yet it’s also an accident-prone day for your sign. Be careful. Think before you speak or do anything. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good day for business and commerce, because you feel confident about financial matters. You’ll also enjoy shopping. (Travel plans might change.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Everyone enjoy being in your company today. Nevertheless, keep an eye on your bank account and anything having to do with shared property to avoid surprises. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Even though you are happy to be behind the scenes today, something unexpected will occur with partners

and close friends. You’ll have to deal with this; you have no choice. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Your relationships with others are warm and friendly today. Enjoy good times. Canceled meetings, computer crashes and staff shortages are likely at work. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You might be attracted to someone in a position of authority today. Meanwhile, others will seek your creative advice. Parent should be extra vigilant about their kids today, because this is an accident-prone day for them. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Travel anywhere will delight you today, because you feel adventurous! You want to learn new things. Pay attention to matters at home, because minor accidents are possible. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

This is a passionate day for romantic partners. It’s also a good day for financial negotiations or dividing something like an inheritance. (Guard against accidents today.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Relations with partners and close friends are especially warm and friendly today. Nevertheless, expect a few financial surprises. Guard your possessions against loss or theft. Keep your receipts.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Things will go smoothly at work today because co-workers are friendly and supportive. Despite this assistance, something will catch you off guard. Expect surprise detours to your day. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a fun-loving, flirtatious day! Enjoy the arts, sports, romance and playful times with children.

However, be on guard for hidden surprises, because they are there! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Home and family are warm and fuzzy today. Relations with family members, especially parents, are good. This is also an excellent day for real-estate negotiations. (But a friend might surprise you.) YOU BORN TODAY You are so modern and original in your take on things, others









frequently do not understand you. You have an excellent sense of humor and a quick mind. You’re an organized, systematic thinker. People are attracted to the enthusiasm you have for your ideas and projects. In the year ahead, you begin an entirely new nine-year cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Bill Moyers, journalist/TV host; Amanda Crew, actress; Mark Wahlberg, actor.

Jumbo back on the table at RDEK “(The province) can create a resort municipality where there are no residents and appoint a mayor and council. That to me demonstrates a real concern about public accountability,� he said, calling the legislation “a recipe for chaos�. Wilkie hopes his fellow board members will see the logic in changing its position on Jumbo landuse decisions in favour of more local consultation. In August 2009, the RDEK board of directors voted 8-7 to advise the provincial government that it prefers Jumbo Glacier Resort be appointed a mountain resort municipality. The decision means that the regional district would currently not be responsible for creating an official community plan, nor carrying out rezoning and considering subdivision applications - and all of the public consultation that goes along with those processes. Back then, the majority of the board felt the responsibility would be too onus for regional district staff and take up too much time that could be spent on other regional projects. But since 2009, local government elections have brought six new faces to the board table, so a vote that was very close then may swing the other way now, Wilkie said.

The Regional District of East Kootenay may consider taking back land-use authority for Jumbo Glacier Resort from the province at its June 8 board meeting. Gerry Wilkie, Director of Area G, where part of the proposed $450 million all-season resort would lie, plans to bring forward a motion to the board to reconsider its August 2009 decision that moves Jumbo planning decisions to the province. “I’m asking for consultation not only with the Regional District of East Kootenay (RDEK), but First Nations and the adjacent municipalities,� said Wilkie in an interview with the Townsman. The province signed a Master Development Agreement with the proponents of Jumbo Glacier Resort in March, giving it the green light to go ahead after 22 years. On May 9, the B.C. legislature passed amendments to the Local Government Act that would allow the province to create a mountain resort municipality for Jumbo and appoint a mayor and council before there were any permanent residents. It was that decision that spurred Wilkie to bring the decision back to the board table for debate.
