Trains back on track brings relief for Teck Union members unhappy but comply with back-to-work order BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

A financial disaster was avoided for the city’s largest employer when the federal government legislated CP Rail employees back to work Friday. As the national rail company’s biggest customer, Teck Resources Ltd. was bracing itself for the financial fallout of a prolonged rail strike when federal Minister of Labour Lisa Raitt and the Conservative government passed back-to-work legislation Thursday night. Marcia Smith, Teck’s senior vice president of sustainability and external affairs, said the effect of the brief

job action last week likely won’t register when the quarterly financial picture is developed in July, but there was some concern over the incident. “In a nutshell, any strike like that when you are captive to a railway is serious, because it has a spill over effect on all sorts of people in the province and across the country,” she said from Teck headquarters in Vancouver. “Anything that impacts our ability to do our operations is serious.” But with no trains running for one day while the workers — including locomotive engineers, conductors, yard workers and others — forced Canada’s second-biggest railway to shut down freight operations, that meant 30 car loads of product, both in bound and out bound, were halted

“Now why would CP Rail management bargain with us, when they know the government would force us back to work?.” DON CONWAY

at Teck’s Trail Operation. “Obviously not getting product in and not getting product out does have an effect on our operations,” said Smith. The Kootenay Valley Rail (KVR) line — that runs from Creston to Trail — is owned and operated by CP and is staffed with CP employees, and was affected by the strike. The line moves product for Teck, Zellstoff Celgar pulp mill and Interfor sawmill

in Castlegar. But because the job action was brief it did not have any impact in terms of Teck having to curtail any operations, Smith noted. She said there were a number of operational plans ready to put in place to deal with a potentially long strike, but could not say what those would have been. On its website, the Mining Association of Canada said its member companies will now have a backlog of work to catch up on as they return to rail usage to get supplies to work sites and products to market. CP Rail resumed operations across its entire Canadian freight network Friday morning after the union representing the 4,800 strikers, the Teamsters Canada Rail Conference,

The Village of Montrose is optimistic that water restrictions could be lifted this week after a water main breakage more than three weeks ago. The village’s previously existing water supply was used for a test period on Tuesday and could be accessible to residents as early as Thursday An air lock in the water main below the valves was detected during a test on Friday. The lines were charged to bleed it out, but the pressure “blew” an on-site hot water tank, explained Kevin Chartres, the chief administrative officer for the village. The test damaged three homes with finished basements and flooded some other unfinished basements with minimal damages. Chartres said the village has been in contact with insurance providers. “We’re optimistic about the water being on again (Thursday) if everything goes well,” he added. “But we have to wait and see what happens.” The boil water advisory will remain after the water restrictions have been lifted, and when the water main has been tested, residents will be notified of any changes.

Transit meeting looks to cure system deficiencies BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

You’re either on the bus or off the bus. Similar to counter cultural author Ken Kesey’s comment about the Merry Pranksters in 1964, regional transit operators have had their own share of questions in wondering if people were either on or off the bus.

with the first meeting of a regional committee intended to bring integration to nine separate operating systems, including the one serving Greater Trail. Over the course of the next few months, the committee will develop a single schedule system and regional fare structure, creating a unified regional system whereby a person who boards a bus in Trail could travel through Castlegar to

Nelson having only paid once. The confusion and duplicity inherent in the current system for bus riders traveling between communities will be dissolved in the fall when the changes take place, said Meribeth Burton, B.C. Transit corporate spokesperson. “The greatest benefit is for customers who could really get any where they want to go in the West Kootenay in a cohesive way,� she said. The regional committee will help unite service between Nelson, Trail, Castlegar, Kaslo, Nakusp and the Slocan Valley, creating the venue for transit service providers to share common problems and come up with solutions, make sure systems are all interconnected, easy to navigate and combine resources. Burton said B.C. Transit went to local

ffor You & Your Family


governments last year and made the pitch for regional transit. All municipal councils and regional district directors signed on, said Burton, and everyone “put their own agendas aside for benefit of the riders of the region.� “The new transit system is a great example of regional cooperation. It will benefit riders, and increase their numbers, by delivering a more efficient and flexible service,� said Nelson councilor Donna Macdonald, who represents the Heritage City on the committee. “It’s also a key part of local governments’ commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.� In the first meeting roles, responsibilities and cost sharing will be the first order of business, and where the resources will be utilized. As time wears on, schedule timing, transit

connector points, and an equitable fare will be set. Because local governments had set the level of service they want in place and the subsequent fare they would charge, those decisions will now be made by the committee as it begins operation as one transit system. As well, the committee will determine if they want extra service routes, but it will come at a cost, said Burton. And cost sharing will likely be based on the degree of usage, with each area’s costs based proportionally on the amount of people that ride the bus. “There is no plan in place right now to change the routes, but to best use buses throughout the region,� said Burton. Seamless regional transit should be in place for peak usage season beginning in September.

LOCAL New rules had ‘minimal’ impact at border crossing, says CBSA BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff


Local CP Rail employees were on the picket line on May 23. Back -to-work legislation passed through Parliament last Thursday and trains were rolling again on Friday.

Arbitrator will impose a deal FROM PAGE 1 asked its members to end their walkout when the legislation became law Thursday night. Teamsters Local 563 union representative for the KVR line, Don Conway, said the 24 West Kootenay members were not happy with how the company

or government went into these negotiations, but they did honour back-to-work legislation. Ten hours after the union went on strike and the negotiations had failed — picketing Teck on May 23, as well as the CP Rail station in Castlegar and Nelson

— minister Raitt was preparing back-to-work legislation, he said. “Now why would CP Rail management bargain with us, when they know the government would force us back to work?” he said. The biggest sticking point in negotiations was pension and

fatigue of conductors and engineers while operating trains, said Conway. The workers last contract expired in January. The back-to-work law sends the labour dispute to a government-appointed arbitrator, who has 90 days to impose a deal.

New federal regulations governing cross border shopping have had “minimal” effect at the border in the Greater Trail region, says a Canadian Border Services Agency spokesperson. Stephanie Waddell said less than one week into the reign of the new regulations it was too early to see if there would be a significant trend developing. However, for the first weekend of the rise in the duty-free limit — from $50 to $200 on visits of more than 24 hours — there was a slight increase in local traffic volumes compared to the same weekend last year. For the June 1-3 weekend, there were 597 vehicles crossing the border into Canada from the U.S., and increase of 43 vehicles from the weekend

Police detachment goes digital with fingerprints BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Fine-tuning of the fine art of fingerprinting in the digital format will be a forthcoming feature of local flatfoot work, says the region’s RCMP inspector. Nick Romanchuk said a digital fingerprint scanner has been installed at the RCMP Detachment in Trail, linking the local detachment to the fingerprint and criminal record database in Ottawa. The device is expected to allow local police to become more operationally efficient in terms of processing both criminal and civil fingerprints, he said. “The process of taking ink-based fingerprints, sending them to Ottawa, having them manually examined, and then mailed back could take several months to complete,”

Insp. Romanchuk said in a release. The new scanner means the local detachment will receive the results in approximately one week. Insp. Romanchuk said they are working on certification that will allow them to receive the results almost simultaneously. Fingerprints are sometimes required from people before their criminal record checks can be processed. Insp. Romanchuk said waiting several months for results from Ottawa proved onerous, particularly if the results were needed quickly for a job application. RCMP crime reduction unit Five incidents of note marked the workings of the RCMP crime reduction unit (CRU) in April in the latest installment of the RCMP’s report to

Trail city council. • April 28, Bull-arama - The unit’s presence in the crowds in plain clothes at the event enabled investigators to “prevent incidents before they happened.” There was also a strong uniformed police presence made up of local general duty members. • April 26, probation breach - As a result of frequent curfew checks on a 30-year-old Trail man, two charges of breach of probation were approved. The man will appear in Rossland Provincial Court this month — in the interim curfew checks will continue. • April 20, trafficking cocaine - Information received by the CRU on a 24-year-old Trail man suspected of trafficking cocaine allowed police to stage a “drug deal,” resulting in his

subsequent arrest. Approximately 3.5 grams of cocaine and other evidence of drug trafficking were seized from the suspect. It was also determined the man had multiple warrants out for his arrest in Alberta, which have now been extended to B.C. • April 19, pro-active investigation - The CRU took a proactive approach to crime when they attended the Groutage apartment building and spoke with

many of the occupants, tracking who was residing in each unit. “It is unlike any other apartment building in Trail because the occupants at the Groutage are usually transient and frequently involved in petty crime,” read the report to council. “Becoming more familiar with these occupants is a proactive measure and it is hoped this will in turn reduce crime within the City of Trail.”

recorded one year ago. From June 3-5, 2011, there were 554 vehicles. The CBSA officials collected $12,840.71 in duties and taxes this year, a jump of $2,899.95 from the $9,940.76 they collected in duties and

taxes last year. The lack of any change in the same-day exemption — a time period in which most cross border shoppers would do the deed — could offset the impact of the other rule changes on cross-border traffic.

The Okanagan’s two biggest ski mountains will no longer function as one. Big White and Silver Star have “severed their ties,� said Michael J. Ballingall, senior vice president of Big White. “They’re acting as independent companies right now.� Ballingall was tight lipped on what prompted the split, saying it was for “personal family reasons.� “There’s nothing untoward

here,â€? he said. “The presidents remain the same —they’re brother and sister—and everybody is going to go about their business ‌ the two teams will still work closely.â€? Internally, the change will mean smoother operations, in terms of diminished paperwork. Kelowna residents should only notice that dual mountain passes are off the table. In the months to come, however, the change may take another form. Ballingall said he expects to see each distinct

product to start delving deeper into its own personality. Silver Star will be hiring a marketing and sales a team to work in and out of the valley to meet that aim, while Big White continues on in the way it has in the past. Ultimately, however, there may be more the same than different in days to come. “We share the airport, and there are synergies that take place,� said Ballingall, noting that a number of Interior resorts market their products together.

Battle over lotto win headed to court THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - A woman’s claim for half of a $12.6 million lottery jackpot will go to a full trial, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled last week. The Lotto 6/49 ticket was purchased at a Surrey, B.C. market in November 2008 by Maria Fehr, allegedly using a $20 bill given to her by her husband. But Fehr’s business partner at the time, Maria Ganguin, claims the ticket was purchased using funds from their catering business and should be shared between them. The two women had an agreement that business funds could be used occasionally to purchase lottery tickets and they would split the winnings. Fehr and her husband applied for a summary trial, which would resolve the matter quickly based primarily on sworn statements. But Justice Trevor Armstrong ruled that Ganguin, despite a lack of evidence for her claim, should be allowed to test her business partner’s credibility at a full trial.

Queen ‘humbled’ by magnitude of celebrations

OBITUARIES ATKINSON, ERNEST GORDON — Loving father, uncle and friend quietly passed away on June 2nd, 2012. Gord, as he was known to most, a retired businessman from Rossland, spent the majority of his life in the Rossland / Trail community. He was an avid golfer, enthusiastic ďŹ sherman, and spent many hours in his retirement enjoying both. He was born in Rossland, July 18,1930, to Ernest G. and Ingrid Atkinson. After earning a trade with Cominco, he spent time working in Trail, Kimberly and Spokane before settling into the insurance business and eventually setting up shop in Rossland, where he worked until he retired in the late eighties. Gord is survived by his two sons, Campbell of Spokane Washington, and Dan of Kelowna, his niece, Gail Dudley of Christina Lake, his nephew Ron Parker of Rossland and his former wife, Maggie Atkinson of Spokane. Any who knew Gord will tell of his gruff demeanor, but know that inside he had a soft heart and great sense of humour. Gord will be deeply missed by all who knew him. He spent the last year of his life at Columbia View Lodge and many thanks go the those staff members that came to be his extended family and ďŹ lled his ďŹ nal days with care. A small gathering of family and friends will be held in the near future, the place and time yet to be determined. In lieu of owers, please consider a donation to the Alzheimer’s Asociation of B.C. We’ll miss you, Gord. May your ďŹ nal journey be blessed‌


Singer reveals she has benign brain tumour THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Sheryl Crow revealed that she has a benign brain tumour, but her rep says it’s nothing to be alarmed about. The 50-year-old told an audience about her condition at a recent concert, but her representative, Christine Wolff, said it’s very common. The tumour is a meningioma (men-inGEE-oh-mah), and it’s typically benign and

develops from the protective linings of the brain and spinal cord. Wolff said that Crow is doing great and is healthy and happy. Crow battled breast cancer several years back. She’s currently on a nationwide tour.

LONDON - Pealing church bells, the crack of ceremonial rifle fire and the thunderous din of iconic Royal Air Force fighters couldn’t drown out Britain’s deafening cheers Tuesday as throngs of well-wishers marked the final day of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. As a Lancaster bomber soared over Buckingham Palace, flanked by a Hawker Hurricane and Spitfire fighters, the sovereign - ignoring everpresent rains - waved to the soaked, sprawling crowd from the balcony, capping four days of unparalleled pomp and pageantry that made it clear the country’s affections for the monarchy remain far from depleted. In a rare televised statement, the Queen said the celebrations had been “a humbling experience.� “I will continue to treasure and draw inspiration from the countless kindnesses shown to me in this country and throughout the Commonwealth,� the monarch said during the two-minute prerecorded broadcast. Throughout the festivities, which honoured the Queen’s six decades on the throne, her husband Prince Phillip was not at her side: the Duke of Edinburgh, who turns 91 this weekend, was

Downtown revitalization taking shape


he year 2010 was a challenging one economically in the Kootenays. Many were concerned at the vacant commercial spaces that were appearing with too much regularity and a general state of economic malaise that seemed to be gripping our local economy. Nearly two years after the global economic meltdown of 2008, the tiny metropolis of Trail was finally feeling the effects of this unprecedented event as were many other cities across Canada and the US. Nowhere was this more apparent than in Trail’s downtown core. In response to community concern and a recognition that something had to be done, in August of 2010, the City of Trail hosted a gathering of local business operators and downtown stakeholders at the Best Western Columbia River Hotel to discuss the state of our downtown core. During this facilitated session those in attendance quickly realized that we were facing many of the same issues that had impacted the city over several decades and some new ones too: Aging infrastructure, an undiversified economy, stagnant population figures, a

retiring workforce and a completely new dimension of competition in the retail sector with the proliferation of online shopping. It was clear to all present that if we were going to change the state of the downtown and revitalize our economy, a new approach would be required. This realization led to the development of the Downtown Opportunities and Action Committee (DOAC) in late 2010, with planning beginning in earnest during the first quarter of 2011. The DOAC is a select committee of council that operates under the legislative authority of the City. It was created with twenty local members from various industries and professions along with four subcommittees that focused on the following areas; Development, Planning, Social Concerns and Marketing Initiatives. At our second meeting it was clear that to be effective, the group must not only have committed volunteers, but also a leadership team who was willing to drive the initiative even if interest levels flagged. This was not a short term initiative and it would require sustained effort and commitment to


JOLLY Community Comment reach our goal. An agreement was reached with the group that Lisa Milne and I would serve as Co-Chairs for Phase One, along with Richard Daoust, Maggie Stayanovich and Gord Sims leading the sub-committees until our Revitalization Plan was fully developed. We agreed to review the structure again prior to implementation. I am happy to report that the much talked about and anticipated MMM Group Plan is now in hand. After much deliberation, discussion and consultation with the community, on May 8 the MMM Group delivered their final presentation of the Trail Downtown Revitalization Action Plan to City Council and the DOAC. The plan was unanimously endorsed

by the DOAC on May 15 and Council has now passed the Trail Downtown Plan as our guiding strategy as we move forward with the revitalization of Trail’s Downtown. The plan is available for viewing on the City’s website at Downtown.php and a condensed power point presentation is also available there that provides a high level summary of the plan and its scope. If you don’t have access to the internet, a paper copy can be viewed by contacting City Hall at 250.364.1262. The plan includes short, medium and long term objectives for the downtown that are prioritized into recommendations which are affordable, achievable and in keeping with our overall theme of celebrating our cultural heritage and industrial legacy of achievement. A sneak peak of a few things you will see in the plan includes the following: A renewed focus on the Columbia River as a draw to the downtown, greening of our streetscapes, improved heritage signage and way-finding, clearly defined entry points into the downtown that invite visitors to explore, as well as upgraded sidewalks and

crossings. Traffic patterns will be reviewed for efficiencies and development will be encouraged by the creation of a bylaw that provides incentives for businesses to invest in the prescribed areas. The DOAC, Council and city staff will be working diligently to bring about meaningful change as swiftly as possible. The goal of revitalizing our downtown is one that can only be achieved through the continued support of our merchants and residents.

We have done the surveys and seen the results. People are starting to sound like the little kids who think if they ask enough times the answer will change when the circumstance hasn’t. The revitalization of the core of downtown has already cost us enough in studies and the old bridge isn’t a

part of the core nor if you could walk over it would it attract anyone to the core in a meaningful manner, Sure it’s easy to say put up a sign and use it at your own risk but even researching the legalities of that sign will cost us a fortune in lawyers’ fees and we will still end up paying some form of insur-

Let bridge issue rest in peace Good grief people let it die. We have already beaten this horse to death more than once. The people of Trail have already said they don’t want to be taxed for the next 20 years for the sake of the few that can’t figure out a different equal distance to walk instead of “the bridges.�

So please, let me just say thanks to the staff at the Prestige in Rossland, they know who they are. To the ambulance personnel for their professionalism and compassion. Finally to the staff at Trail Regional Hospital, the cleaning staff, the nurses, the volunteers and of course the doctors and

technicians. Again, the professionalism and care shown me was second to none. The City of Trail and its surrounding communities should be very proud of its emergency services. I for one will never forget. Thank you all ever so much. Mike Davidson Delta, BC

Catch-all legislation covers murky mandates An editorial from the Halifax Chronicle Herald Once elected, governing parties tout the “mandate� they’ve received as justification for any measures they wish to implement. In the world of post-election politics, voters are presumed to have endorsed the victorious party’s entire platform, although everybody knows nobody has read it. Let us dispense, then, once and for all, with the big lie that governments often tell us, and themselves. Mandates are rarely ever clear. They are murky at best, and the truth is that governments more often prefer the murky side of mandates - especially when they do things they promised they wouldn’t do or react to unforeseen circumstances. It’s not as if the Conservative platform from the last federal election - a 67-page document - has received the wholesale

assent of the majority-bestowing public. It’s not as if the last election - by producing a clear winner - should have ended the debate over public policy. And it’s not as if anyone has given the Conservatives carte blanche to roll up their entire spring agenda into a monster bill - some 400 pages long that is designed to avoid proper scrutiny. The omnibus bill that is expected to come back before the House as early as this week has rightly encountered stiff resistance. This is no ordinary budget implementation bill, but a steamroller of sweeping change, from the streamlining of environmental regulations to the reform of Old Age Security and EI. If passed by month’s end, as the government hopes, it would even grant the FBI the right to make arrests in Canada in some cases.

Whatever the merits of these measures, the government has tainted them all by its stubborn refusal to split up its agenda into manageable pieces which can be digested by parliamentary committees. This is anti-democratic and the hundreds of organizations and businesses that “blacked out� their websites on Monday in protest - whether or not you agree with their agendas - are right about that. The Liberals and Greens, whose tag-team guerrilla strategy is to pepper the omnibus bill with 200 amendments, are right to pick a fight here, too. The truth is many conservatives, some of them on the government benches, and many in the media, are cheering them on. The usual tactic is to divide and conquer the opposition. But unite and blunder is what the Harper Conservatives have done here.

Excellent emergency care appreciated Recently I required the services of Trail’s emergency services. It was sudden and very scary. It turned out though that all my anxiety was for not. The service I received from the Kootenay Boundary Regional emergency services was second to none. To try to name names would be to do a disservice as I would inevitably miss some.

RSS takes shot at title Rossland plays for bronze at B.C.’s BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

The Rossland Secondary School Royals senior girls soccer team played their hearts out in the B.C. High School Single-A Soccer championship in Kelowna on the weekend. Sixteen teams from around the province descended on Immaculata Regional High School in Kelowna Thursday, to kick off the 2012 single-A provincials. Rossland went into the tournament seeded in fourth spot and looked to move up a notch. The talented Royals team has had a successful season winning regionals handily and breezing to victory in the Single A Public Schools Championship tournament in Osoyoos last month. But in the provincials, the small school was up against many private-school powerhouses. Nevertheless, they got off to a brilliant start, going 3 and 0 in the round robin. The Royals opened the tournament with a 7-1 drubbing of Kelowna Christian, then followed that with another decisive victory over Ashcroft 10-0, before finishing off the round with a 4-1 win over Langley Christian. The Royals then faced defending provincial champs Glenlyon Norfolk out of Victoria with the winner advancing to the final. The Royals quickly fell behind 2-0 but stormed back to tie it. However, Glenlyon would go ahead on a penalty kick and add another to go up 4-2. The Royals battled hard, scoring once more and cutting the lead to 4-3 but would eventually capitulate, suffering a 5-3 loss. With the loss to Glenlyon Norfolk, RSS had an opportunity for a bronze medal on Saturday. However, they came up against a strong Immaculata side and ended up losing 4-0. “The bronze medal game was actually a much harder match and Immaculata had some wickedly fast forwards,” said RSS teacher Kim McKinnon. “The RSS girls play an offisde trap which unfortunately you can live or die by.” In the final match between Norfolk and Southridge, extra time was needed to decide it, but in the end Southridge would score two to win the provincial title by a score of 2-nil. Coach Rick McKinnon said he couldn’t be prouder of the team who have stuck together for many years and were the talk of the tournament with their tenacious play and ball movement. Their fourth placing is the RSS senior girls soccer team’s best finish ever in the single-A provincials. The Royals placed seventh in 2011 and 12th the previous year. They also had the best record among all Single-A public schools in the province. They ended the 2012 season with an impressive 23 wins, two losses and four draws. (See photo on page 10)


For the second year in a row, rain postponed the District 20 Elementary School Track meet at Haley Park until Tuesday. But it didn’t matter, as a little more rain failed to dampen the spirits of over 300 elementary school athletes in Grades 4-7 from running, jumping, throwing and racing to the finish in spite of the weather.

MONTREAL - Michel Therrien is back as head coach of the Montreal Canadiens. The NHL club announced Tuesday that 48-year-old Therrien will replace Randy Cunneyworth behind the bench. The Montreal native coached the Canadiens from 2000 until he was replaced by Claude Julien in January 2003. The announcement ended weeks of speculation on who would be new general manager Marc Bergevin’s man. Former NHL coach Marc Crawford and the popular former goaltender Patrick Roy, now coach and general manager of the junior Quebec Remparts, were also believed to be top candidates. Bergevin and his staff opted for Therrien, who has been working in television since he was let go by the Pittsburgh Penguins only a few weeks before their run to the Stanley Cup in 2009. Cunneyworth was named interim coach after Jacques Martin was fired in December.

Therrien hired

NEW YORK Trainer Doug O’Neill says I’ll Have Another’s Triple Crown feel-good adventure proves that a champion horse and jockey can come from anywhere. In this case, the journey comes with a Canadian chequebook thanks to well-heeled owner J. Paul Reddam of Windsor, Ont. And a helping hand from Vancouver, where upstart Mexican jockey Mario Gutierrez found a second home. On Saturday, Gutierrez and I’ll Have Another race in the 144th Belmont Stakes in search of thoroughbred racing’s first Triple Crown since Affirmed

did it in 1978. It’s the story of a horse bought for US$11,000 as a yearling and then $35,000 as a two-year-old - by Reddam - that has gone on to win five of seven career races and $2,629,200 in prize money despite never having yet gone off as the favourite. Gutierrez, meanwhile, was a littleknown jockey trying to make his name in California after a successful run at Hastings Racecourse in Vancouver. Only 11 horses have won the Triple Crown. And since Affirmed, 11 others have won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness only to stum-

ble on the 1.5-mile trek over the Belmont dirt. “Pressure?” said Gutierrez, who was taken to the top of the Empire State Building on Tuesday before a media luncheon uptown. “Well, there is a little bit but nothing to be nervous of. I’m excited.” The five-foot-four, 114-pound jockey was the picture of calm as he was stalked by cameras on a rooftop garden at the Rockefeller Center. There was some irony when he paused for lunch, opting for a bite-sized mini-burger and glass of water. “He’s such a humble kid, and yet a very confident kid,” O’Neill said. “He gets along with I’ll Have Another just brilliantly.” There is plenty at stake Saturday. Gutierrez says I’ll Have Another has

already changed his life and that of his family back in Mexico. But a win in the Belmont will take it up a notch, while adding zeros to I’ll Have Another’s stud fee. And at a time when thoroughbred racing seems to be losing its lustre, the sport needs a boost. Gamblers have many places to bet these days while others have been turned off by stories of doping abuse. O’Neill, no stranger to controversy himself, hopes I’ll Have Another’s feel-good storyline will help win some fans back. “Hopefully a horse like I’ll Have Another and a jockey like Mario Gutierrez can show people that a great racehorse can come from anywhere and a great jockey can come from anywhere. “And (with) all the extra scrutiny, people

that are a little bit leery of the sport will see that it’s a great sport and it’s a high-speed sport. It takes a lot of horsemanship for these little guys to get on the back of these horse and go 35, 40 miles per hours with no seatbelt. “There’s a lot of great things about it. And hopefully it’ll take some of the negative out of the newspapers for a little bit. Hopefully forever.” O’Neill was suspended last month for 45 days by California racing officials. They agreed that the trainer had not given one of his horses a performanceenhancing mixture. But after a lengthy legal battle, they still found fault via a rule that says trainers are responsible for their horses. The ruling doesn’t prevent O’Neill from taking part in the Belmont. In a bid to safeguard the Belmont horses from any doping abuse, they are being held in an isolated barn under watch. Feed will be checked for drugs. O’Neill just sees it as a bid “to tell people that it’s a clean game and we just need to be more transparent.” I’ll Have Another was slated to go to the new stall Wednesday after O’Neill’s team disinfects it, prepares it and makes sure there are no sharp objects poking out.

Ask family to help encourage professional help Dear Annie: My brother-in-law and his wife are strange people. “Tom and Alice” live beyond their means and are constantly asking for help. We’ve given them more than $10,000, and they’ve never paid back a dime. That’s not the worst part. Alice is in love with my husband, “Dean.” She giggles and flirts with him and used to send him scantily clad pictures of herself. This made us both horribly uncomfortable. I trust Dean. He would leave the phone on speaker when she’d call. And in order to avoid any hint of impropriety, Dean changed his phone number and email address and got off of all social networks. He now can only be reached through the office. Alice doesn’t work and aspires to be on a reality show for rich wives. When she got pregnant four years ago, she told me that



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

Dean should be in the delivery room because “it’s his baby.” This can’t possibly be true. Dean had a vasectomy years ago, and more importantly, we were out of the country when Alice conceived. His father, stepmother and sisters believe her, and she even called our daughter at college to say she has a half-sister. We recently received a petition for child support. My brother-in-law shrugs off his wife’s behavior, saying Alice has inadequate boundaries. He says he knows the child isn’t my husband’s, but “a little extra cash couldn’t hurt” because he is out

of work. Dean and I spoke to a lawyer. The only reason we stay in touch with his family is because my mother-in-law, a wonderful woman, is battling breast cancer and relies on Alice (who yells at her) for rides to the doctor. My husband is worried that if we take legal action against Alice, his mother will suffer the consequences. I don’t know how I ended up in an episode of Jerry Springer. Any ideas? -Beside Myself in Jersey Dear Beside: The first thing you should do is get a paternity test so you have legal proof that Dean is not the father of this child. Then talk to as many family members as you can and urge them to convince Alice to get professional help. This woman has serious mental health issues, and her mercenary husband exploits her. Try to arrange other transportation for your mother-in-law so you

are not held hostage to her situation, and then do what you must to protect your own family. Dear Annie: For the third time, my daughter has called to verbally abuse me. The first time, I refused to listen, and she withheld her children from us. We had helped raise our oldest grandchild, and she kept him away for a year. The second time she pulled this stunt, she showed up two years later in need of financial help. She also had a new baby we’d never seen. We forgave her. She is now practicing this vicious tactic for the third time. We have decided we are too old to deal with this. We’ve redone our will. Our son will inherit the bulk of the estate, and our daughter will be given a pittance so she cannot claim we’ve overlooked her. No one should have to take abuse in order to see their grandchildren.

-- Three Strikes You’re Out in Pennsylvania Dear Three: We agree. But how heartbreaking for you. Our condolences. Dear Annie: Your response to “Ready To Settle Down” was excellent, but didn’t go

quite far enough. When I was newly divorced, someone gave me the best advice I’ve ever received. It has gotten me through some pretty rocky moments, and hopefully, it will inspire “Ready” to rethink her desire to

be with the lazy creep now in her life. “The only thing worse than being alone is wishing you were.” -- Louisville, Ky. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Thursday, June 7, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’ll have to be patient with siblings and neighbors in order to avoid arguments today. Some people are actually looking for a fight! (You know who you are.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Disputes about financial matters or something you own are likely today. Possibly the dispute is about children or the cost of a social event. Whatever the case, demonstrate grace under pressure. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Even though you feel easygoing and friendly, someone at home or within your family likely will irk you today. Why not cut this person some slack? After all, you have so much good fortune coming to you! CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might be doing a slow boil about something today. You’re mad, but you can’t say

anything. (This might be just as well, if you stop to think about it.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Squabbles with others about financial matters or about something you own are very likely today. Try to distance yourself from these issues and give everything a little breathing space. Get some perspective. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a very poor day to disagree with bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs or the police. If you start to fight, things will get nasty very quickly (not a pretty picture). LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Avoid touchy subjects like politics, religion and racial issues, today, because people are in a fighting mood. Keep your head down and your powder dry. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Disagreements about inher-

itances or how something should be divided are highly likely today. Therefore, postpone these discussions if you can. Why fight? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Tread carefully today, because everyone is walking on eggshells. Friends, partners, parents and bosses are all ready to bark at each other. (Run away! Run away!)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You have to practice patience at work today, or things could go south in a New York minute. Customers and co-workers are antsy. Easy does it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Lovers’ quarrels are likely today. Ditto for fights in sports and disagreements with children. (Oh dear, run for cover.)

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Family disagreements and possibly arguments could break out today. Knowing this ahead of time, why don’t you avoid touchy subjects? Do what you can to keep the peace. YOU BORN TODAY You are intrigued by everything going on around you. This is why you like to have your finger on the pulse of fashion, politics and social change. At









times, you are original and certainly bizarre in the eyes of others. People think you’re witty and charming (and you are). In the year ahead, an important choice will arise. Choose wisely.

Fortunately, winter didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a surprise return to her Tail home but the abundance of cottonwood floating in the air gathered at her door step. Right; Lou DeRosa snapped a photo of the wisteria vine blooming at his Sunningdale home. Planted 30 years ago, the first bloom came 10 years later.
