Rainfall warning adds to flood concerns

Major projects begin at Teck


Demolition and concrete removal underway

Times Staff

Start building the ark. Water continues to pour down into the Greater Trail region, prompting a rainfall warning from Environment Canada for the West Kootenay into Thursday, ramping up a high stream advisory to a flood watch from the B.C. River Forecast Centre. A large-scale upper low-pressure system has developed across the West Kootenay and has soaked 30 millimetres of rain into the soggy scene over the past 24 hours, adding to an already saturated soil situation. As a result, river levels have been rising in response to this deluge, pushing smaller creeks and rivers near peak levels of their five-year flow rates. In fact, the Slocan River near Crescent Valley is currently rising at a rate of three centimeters per hour (one inch per hour), pounding water across the rock face where whitewater kayakers play, creating waves in excess of one metre (three feet). In Fruitvale, the waters of Beaver Creek are level with the edge of its banks, after it rose 15 cm. (six inches) Tuesday night, and a further nine cm. (four inches) Wednesday morning. Village of Fruitvale chief administrative officer Lila Cresswell said the water level was still not as high as it was last year at its peak — and it has not jumped its banks and flooded the park in the village core — but it is uprooting trees in some areas near Bluebird corner. “Southeast Emergency Management has us on a flood watch and we are in constant contact with them,” she said. The low-pressure system is drifting northwestward toward northern B.C., but before it does it will drop up to 20 mm. of rain around Trail and further east into Castlegar, Nelson and the Slocan Valley. Rain turned to snow in higher elevations Wednesday afternoon, closing the Salmo to Creston (83.9 km) Highway 3 mountain pass after a vehicle incident resulted from the extreme weather conditions, according to DriveBC. The road was still closed as of press time. Meanwhile, the ongoing closure of the TransCanada Highway between Revelstoke and Golden will “likely” continue for the “next few days” said a Parks Canada spokesperson.

A crane was needed to haul materials onto the third floor of the Kootenay Savings Credit Union building Wednesday as work began on an office space expansion by Rendek Developments Inc. Led by Creston-based Terrence Rendek, the company had one city bus stop closed for the morning in front of the financial institution as they lifted materials up and hauled them through an open window.

Work has started on two environmentally-geared projects at Teck Trail Operations, the No. 4 furnace project and the No. 1 acid plant. Several access roads are being prepared on the Southeast corner of Teck’s property, overlooking downtown and the Columbia River, while some vegetation is being removed for preparation of on-site construction. Excavation and demolition work began this week, and concrete removal is expected to take roughly three weeks. Work is scheduled to take place Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. to 3 a.m. to minimize noise in West Trail. “Currently, Trail processes end-oflife electronics in the No. 2 Slag Fuming Furnace and in August 2011, we celebrated processing 50,000 tonnes of e-waste since the process started in 2006,” said Catherine Adair, the community engagement co-coordinator at Teck Trail Operations. “Having a new furnace will triple the capacity we have currently.” Sulfur dioxide emissions could be reduced at Teck Trail Operations by nearly 20 per cent annually by using new technology to upgrade the No. 4 furnace project. The furnace project is estimated to demand 500,00 hours of construction labour over a two year period, resulting in roughly 200 jobs. The upgrades include construction for a new Baghouse to filter gas from the furnaces to maintain the quality of air. In addition, the No. 1 acid plant requires 300,000 hours of work to completed and will create another 150 employment opportunities. The projects are expected to be wrapping up by 2014.

is 20 vendors — from people selling bedding plants to those selling fruit, making jewelry, making candles — but the next phase would be to expand to 40 vendors. Held on the “pier� and the wooden decking at the end of the Esplanade, the market would not interfere with traffic, and it would have the room to expand as it grows, explained Stayanovich. There are opportunities to go further down the Esplanade to Spokane Street, and then the other way into Jubilee Park,

she noted. “The opportunities are endless, and it gives our downtown businesses a huge opportunity to have increased traffic,� Stayanovich said. “Of course, we are encouraging them to participate, whether as a sidewalk sale or running a special, they are welcome to join in.� The chamber office will be providing the administration and coordination for the markets.

Two dogs deemed dangerous BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff


Lisa Pasin, Director of Development KBRH Health Foundation (front row center), accepts a donation to the Digital Mammography campaign from Lower Columbia communities. Trail, Rossland, Warfield and RDKB Area B allocated a total of $17,600 through the Columbia Basin Trust Community Initiatives & Affected Areas program to help bring Digital Mammography to KBRH.

Front row left to right: Rona Park, CBT Community Liaison and Gord DeRosa, CBT Board member.

Two Montrose dogs have been declared dangerous after a nasty encounter with a family on Seventh Street. The action stems from a reported attack that took place around 7 p.m. on May 30. Julie George was allegedly walking with two of her children, both under the age of 15, and two of her own dogs on leashes when two other dogs surrounded them in a “pack.” “The grey dog ran directly after my 10-year-old,” said George in a letter to the Village of Montrose addressing her concerns on May 31. “And at that point, my eldest son (14) placed himself between his brother and the grey dog which resulted in the grey dog attacking my Golden Doodle.” The George family prevented serious

injuries by escaping the attack unscathed by kicking the dogs. Julie expressed concern about how the owners of the dogs reacted when they arrived on the scene. “They did not inquire as to whether we had been bitten or injured in any way,” she said. “I was in shock by the level of aggression shown by these dogs and (was) completely blind-sighted by the attack.” Julie contacted the SPCA about the attack and declared that both dogs would be registered as dangerous. “It’s been taken care of by the SPCA,” said Mayor Joe Danchuk. Montrose has a bylaw requiring dogs to be on a leash, but the dangerous dog bylaw was repealed in 2004. According to the village’s website, there is no bylaw pertaining to dangerous dogs.

Salmo River prone to flooding FROM PAGE 1 The slide came down in the early morning hours of June 6 as the area experienced heavy rains during spring runoff. Parks Canada spokesperson Jacolyn Daniluck told the Revelstoke Times Review the mudslide is at the East Gate Landslide Area, located near the eastern boundary of Glacier National Park. Flood conditions are a growing possiblity on rivers throughout the region, including the Salmo River. Earlier this week, a high streamflow advisory was issued for the Kootenay River, which flows into the Columbia River. “Larger river systems are still responding to the rainfall and are currently rising,” the report warned. On Tuesday afternoon, a large amount of debris and high stream flow rates prompted a 9-1-1 call to Trail Fire Rescue when it was believed someone had fallen into the river. The search was called off by Trail RCMP after searching the river for several hours with the department’s rescue boat when no sign of a person was found. Flows on Duhamel Creek 10 kilometres east of Nelson are currently cresting at 11.5 cubic metres per second, or at a 10-year flow level, while nearby Redfish Creek is cresting at 13 m3/s, or a 20-year flow level.

village does not have a bylaw that requires differentiating fees for licensing vicious dogs. Alternatively there is a bylaw requiring all dogs in the village to be on a leash while they’re away from home. Meanwhile, Trail’s current city bylaw lumps pitbulls into the vicious dog category, and charges owners $300 to license this breed of dog. While other dogs deemed vicious or not cost $25 with a veterinarian certificate noting the animal has been neutered or $100 if it hasn’t. Warfield has a bylaw that pertains to dangerous dogs, including pitbulls, but there are no additional licensing fees listed on the village website. However, there is a note indicating that dangerous dogs must be confined indoors or in an enclosed yard at all times.

Good Samaritans return money found on road THE CANADIAN PRESS PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - When Roger and Gladys Nickolet saw money floating down from the sky in Prince George this week, they knew they couldn’t just pocket the cash. The couple say they and several other

PUBLIC NOTICE In 2007 a 3,560 hecatare wildfire in the Pend d’Oreille valley occurred and caused evacuation orders and alerts to many local residents. As this year’s fire season approaches so does the risk of another wildfire, therefore it is requested that No Open Fires be in the Pend d’ Oreille area. Please respect this request and help to reduce the possibility of this area being closed to the public for the summer. In May 2012 the WKATV Club removed over 1,000kg of wooden pallets from the Pend d’ Oreille area, business owners are advised to keep wood pallets in secure areas to help reduce and stop people from collecting them for open fires. Let’s all be part of the solution in protecting our forests. This area has had security increased to watch for open fire and vandalism for the 2012 summer season and penalties/tickets will be issued to offenders. For further information on this request please email West Kootenay ATV Club

nesswoman Karen Toombs forgot she’d placed a bag full of money on the roof of her car before driving to the bank. Toombs says she offered the Nickolets a reward, but they declined the offer, accepting instead assistance for their granddaughter to attend Bible camp. The Nickolets have a history of honesty, a few years ago they returned a wallet full of cash they’d found at a local mall to the family that lost it.

said they couldn’t support the request from an unnamed company, even though it would have brought in some rental income. “You’re trying to shoot somebody in the chest or in the head,” Burnaby Coun. Sav Dhaliwal said of the extreme sport where players dressed as soldiers fire guns loaded with paint pellets. “It’s absolutely not the kind of value we should be promoting.” Vancouver Coun. Heather Deal, the committee’s chair, said she loves paintball but said a large section of a regional park would have to be fenced and screened from other users, effectively making it off-limits to them. “What it’s actually doing is simulating going out and killing someone,” said Port Coquitlam Coun. Darrell Penner. “To

me, it’s not appropriate for a public park.” But Richmond Coun. Harold Steves and Langley City Coun. Gayle Martin voted against the motion rejecting the concept, saying they wanted staff to at least consider what areas might be appropriate and test how much revenue might come in. Steves likened paintball to the wholesome capture-the-flag game played outdoors at camps in his childhood. “The whole idea that this is wrong is just a perception about people with weapons,” he said.. “I’m not saying paintball is the right fit for our parks,” Langley City Coun. Gayle Martin said. “I don’t know. We haven’t seen the proposal.” She dismissed concerns that paintball players leaving a park

with unspent ammunition might go on to vandalize the surrounding neighbourhood. Metro staff did not say what park or parks had been suggested for the activity. A staff report warned it might generate conflict with other nature-loving park visitors over the use of mock weapons, vegetation might be trampled and paint splatters or spent pellets might deface trees and the landscape. Visitors or neighbours might even mistake the pretend soldiers and their guns for the real thing, it said. The report concluded the disadvantages outweighed the benefits of increased park visits, promoting more active recreation and “modest” rent fees that would be charged to operators.

Premier sticks with surplus estimate despite falling oil prices THE CANADIAN PRESS


Josh Beebee, surveys damage after two tornados were reported to have touched down near Taber, Alta., on Tuesday, leaving more than half the town without power. Residents were cleaning up downed trees and minor damage to buildings on Wednesday.


Puppy-doo stands as evidence THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO Evidence of a police officer who sniffed out a thief who found herself in doo-doo was properly admitted at the trial that convicted her of stealing a flat-screen television, Ontario’s top court ruled Wednesday. In upholding the conviction against Surriff Atkinson, the court found the officer did not seriously breach her Charter rights when he picked up her shoes in her mudroom and smelled them. Atkinson, it seems, had stepped in canine feces from an untrained puppy belonging to

the victim’s son on a darkened balcony in Kitchener, Ont., when she stole the TV from a livingroom in November 2009. “No one awoke, not even the puppy,� Justice Dave Watt wrote for the Ontario Court of Appeal. “The burglar’s only faux pas was failing to sidestep a deposit of feces left by the puppy on the balcony of the apartment, then proceeding to track the deposit into the apartment.� Hours later, after noticing doggy-doo all over the apartment, Const. Steven van Dyke went to Atkinson’s

nearby home to investigate her as a “person of interest� based on information provided by the victim. At the mudroom door, he spotted a pair of her black shoes on the floor with a “deposit� stuck to the soles and picked them up for a closer look. Van Dyke’s observations of the shoes were central to convicting Atkinson for the burglary. On appeal, her lawyer argued the officer’s evidence should have been thrown out as a breach of her Charter rights against an unreasonable search and seizure.

The Alberta premier is standing by projections that her government will have a surplus next year, despite oil prices that are lower than expected. Redford says Alberta has always had to deal with price fluctuations and she likes to think long term. “We are not a caucus that is going to run around saying, ‘The sky is falling. The sky is falling,�’ Redford said Wednesday. “We have plans, we have choices that we need to make and we are going to govern based on that.� She noted that this

year’s budget is based on oil hitting a price of $99.25 a barrel and the average this fiscal year is slightly less than $90. As of Wednesday afternoon, crude was up $1.05 to $85.34 a barrel. Prices have been buffeted over the last few weeks as the worsening eurozone crisis stalls an already fragile global economic recovery. Commodity

prices have been hitting multi-month lows. The Alberta budget tabled in February calls for a $952-million surplus in 20132014 after years of deficits. The deficit in this year’s budget was $886 million. It’s the fifth in a row after 14 years of surpluses. Redford said she is “very confident� the province can hit its projections.

Shopping local puts something in everyone’s pocket


he issue of cross border shopping was front and centre on the weekend with the changes to the duty-free allowances for travelers to the U.S. Of course as one of the many border towns that will feel the impact of these changes the most, it was interesting to hear comments from some merchants in a recent Trail Daily Times news story. While some admitted the changes will be another hit to the bottom line of local businesses, others were confident their prices and customer loyalty will rule the day and the impact, albeit inevitable, will be minimal. So there you have it. And caught in the middle are the consumers. Who can blame any shopper for trying to get the best bargain for their hard-earned cash? After all, we’re told to cut down on our debt yet the cost of living keeps climbing faster than most wages. We’re told to save for the future but if we stop spending the economy will come to a standstill. So when it comes to dishing out our cash for

goods, the bottom line is often the determining line. While, shopping local for many goods may not have the immediate impact on our wallets we wish to see, the long-term benefits are definitely there front and centre. By supporting local businesses we not only put money back into the community but we add to the livability of our community. As bad as some people want to paint downtown Trail, imagine what it would be like if the city had no businesses – no grocery stores, department stores, pharmacies or restaurants. Is that the type of town you would want to live in? Of course not. Purchasing opportunities aside, remember that these stores are more than just consumer outlets. They are part of our social fabric. These shops help our kids get that first job, earn that extra cash and start building a resume. These stores pay taxes, which go back into our community. These businesses support charities and events that otherwise wouldn’t


BERTRAND Times in Trail happen. Consider the last time you gave a big donation to a charity. For many, it would be tough to think of one, yet year after year those same organizations go knocking on the doors of small, local businesses, which respond more often than not. Sure some people will complain the service and selection isn’t always what they would find in Kelowna or Spokane but surely there are places in those centres that sometimes don’t even meet those lofty expectations. There are lots of excuses for shopping across the border and I’ll admit to a traditional back-to-school shopping trip south. It’s as much about time away and bonding with my daughter

as it is about bargain hunting. Nevertheless, I go out of my way to spend my money locally. And by locally I mean throughout the West Kootenay be it Rossland, Fruitvale, Castlegar or Nelson. From my point of view it only makes sense. The reality of the newspaper business is that advertising pays the bills. So I’d be an idiot if I didn’t support the businesses that help pay my wage. I try, as often as I can, to remind a business that the reason I’m shopping there is because they support my job through their advertising. So the money is actually coming full circle. Granted I can’t buy from every business that advertises in our paper but I believe any effort helps in the long run. People might argue that doesn’t always work with the large big box stores where the cash flows to some headquarters in the U.S. or back east. But on the other hand, those same stores are filled with employees from our community. People who hopefully use some of the money they’ve earned and

spend it locally to support other businesses. And the circle continues. It doesn’t take much to break that circle and certainly a change in duty exemptions will create a little crack in it. And while the federal government appears oblivious to the potential damage its rule changes might cause, once again, like many things, it falls back on the shoulders of the average citizen to save the day. Too often people say the actions of one person will make little difference in the big picture. That excuse is repeated far too often when it comes to mega issues like global warming or government reform or changing society’s views. In the case of shopping local it couldn’t be further from the truth. For every dollar that stays locally, it’s another brick in the business community’s foundation. And it’s that foundation that helps us build our homes in such a beautiful part of the world. Guy Bertrand is the managing editor of the Trail Daily Times

There are some



curious kinks in the statistics, such as the fact that Spanishspeaking whites are not counted as white, but the message is clear: the next adult generation in the United States will not be majority white. So why did the last two generations of Americans, who were still mostly of European descent, let it happen? Did they welcome and encourage it, as a good thing for the country’s future? Or were they just asleep at the wheel? Some Americans certainly did encourage it, arguing that turning the United States into a microcosm of the whole world was fulfilling its destiny, and that the sheer diversity of its future population would give it a huge competitive advantage in the world. But there were not many people who made that argument, and there is actually little evidence to show that ethnic diversity makes a country more competitive. Nor did this immense change happen while the old white population was just not paying attention. There were debates about immigration policy all the time, there was plenty of information about where the current immigration policy was leading, and Americans simply let it happen. One explanation that sounds plausible is that it was about fairness. As descendants of immigrants themselves, they felt that they could not deny others the same opportunities. Many older white Americans were clearly uneasy about the new social reality that was springing up around them, but most of them remained true to their ideals and never mobilised to stop it. Maybe the last two generations of Americans were a lot less racist than many people – including many Americans – thought. Or perhaps they were all silently aware that only five hundred years ago, none of the births in North America were white.

Russian hockey star dies THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MOSCOW - Vladimir Krutov, one of the Soviet Union’s all-time great ice hockey players and part of the national team’s formidable KLM Line, has died. He was 52. The Russian Hockey Federation said Krutov died Wednesday. It did not give a cause of death, but the ITAR-Tass news agency said he had been taken to a hospital several days earlier for stomach bleeding. “Volodya was such a dependable and steadfast man that I would have gone anywhere with him - to war, to espionage, into peril. There are fewer and fewer guys like him in every generation of hockey players,” federation president and former Soviet goaltender Vladislav Tretyak told the Sport-Express newspaper. Born in Moscow, Krutov gathered attention for his play with a local factory team Meteor and was then invited to the hockey school of the CSKA Moscow club. Krutov and his CSKA teammates Igor Larionov and Sergei Makarov formed one of the most potent scoring lines that hockey has ever seen, and led the Soviet team to gold in the 1984 and 1988 Olympics. He was one of the first Soviet players to play in the NHL, but spent only one undistinguished season with the Vancouver Canucks.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - A little dog with a big mission and a pack of celebrity sidekicks has lost her battle with cancer. Lucky Diamond died Tuesday, in her dog bed at her New York City home. The rescued Maltese was about 15 years old, according to her

owner, Wendy Diamond. Diamond dedicated her life to animal welfare after adopting Lucky in 1999. The sweet-but-spunky canine patiently starred in photo ops with celebrities ranging from Kristen Stewart of “Twilight” fame to hip-hop star Snoop Dogg and actress

to him. When his father was dying of cancer, Suzuki moved into his home to take care of him, and said that time with him taught him the greatest lesson of all. “In the time we spent together, he kept saying ‘David, I die a rich man.’ He never once said, ‘Do you remember that big house we owned in London, Ontario, or that car I bought in 1987, or the closet full of fancy clothes... ‘ That’s just stuff. All we talked about was family, friends, and neighbours, and the things we did together. For my father, that was his wealth, that’s what gave his life meaning,” Suzuki said, his voice cracking with emotion. “Happiness, that’s what life is about. It’s not about running after all this stuff, and we’ve forgotten that.” Catching up with audience members once the presentation was concluded, it was easy to tell that Suzuki had made quite an impression. “I’m really inspired that David is willing to talk as an elder, not looking for any fundraising or donations, but openly honest, and that’s what we need,” said Sadie Parr, who drove from Golden to see Suzuki’s presentation. “I thought it was inspiring,” echoed Dave Atkinson, of Invermere. “To hear a speech like that about something that concerns all of us, coming from someone as knowledgeable as Dr. Suzuki and with as much passion as he has about it... it brought it down to a very human level.”

Richard Branson “and many more,” Guinness confirmed Tuesday. Lucky also was involved in widespread charity work. Among other things, her fuzzy, doe-eyed lovability resulted in funds and awareness for the Humane Society of New York.

LIFESTYLES Facebook explores allowing preteens on site with supervision THE ASSOCIATED PRESS


Father Matthieu Gombo Yange OfmCap, the pastor of the Trail Catholic Community, releases one of two doves during the open air mass on May 27.

Open air mass highlights Feast of Pentecost TRAIL – On May 27, the Trail Catholic Community celebrated with excitement, the Feast of Pentecost by having an Open Air Mass and Family Picnic and Barbecue at St. Michael’s School. The word “Pentecost� means “the 50th (day�). Pentecost is a Feast of the universal Church which commemorates the Descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles in the Cenacle (Upper Room), fifty days after the Resurrection of Christ. In fact, for the Jews, Pentecost is the harvest festival, or Festival of Weeks or again Festival of Reaping and Day of the First Fruits and according to Jewish tradition, Pentecost was a prominent feast in the calendar of Ancient Israel celebrating the giving of the Law on Sinai, and also later in the Christian liturgical year commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Twelve Apostles around Mary and other followers of Christ. For this reason, Pentecost is described as the “Birthday of the Church.� Indeed, there are similarities between the Christian and Jewish Pentecost, as an outpouring of the

Spirit or the giving of the Law in seventy languages. Thus, many consider the events of each historical Pentecost to be the birthday of each religion respectively. The members of the Trail Catholic Community decided that they would really make this day a big celebration. So with a lot of hard work, many volunteers and the weather on their side, this day turned out to be a day to remember. The day began with a beautiful outdoor mass which had people come from Rossland, Trail, Fruitvale, Salmo, Nelson and Kelowna. Father Matthieu Gombo Yange OfmCap (Order of Friars Minor Capuchin), the pastor of the Trail Catholic

Community and Father Vittorio Boria OfmCap concelebrated the mass. Father Vittorio who was here visiting our community from Toronto, gave the Homily. The highlight of the mass was when Father Matthieu released two white doves into the air. That is a memory that none of us will ever forget. Let us remember that doves or flames are often used as the symbols of the Holy Spirit, and doves especially are symbols of Peace. When the mass ended kids and adults enjoyed games and activities such as a boxing ring, bouncy castle, tug of war, bocce, and much more. The Trail Queen candidates came out

and helped with the days activities by doing face painting and assisting with other games. For supper we were treated to a wonderful barbecue dinner cooked by the Trail Knights of Columbus. We enjoyed steaks, hamburgers and hotdogs plus many other goodies to go along with the main course. After dinner we enjoyed listening to three local Catholic choirs; Sacred Heart Choir from Rossland, St. Anthony’s and OLPH choirs from Trail. The day, afternoon and evening events were such a wonderful way to celebrate the magnificent Feast of Pentecost Sunday. Marianne Hubbard Trail Catholic Community

NEW YORK - Though Facebook bans children under 13, millions of them have profiles on the site by lying about their age. The company is now testing ways to allow those kids to participate without needing to lie. This would likely be under parental supervision, such as by connecting children’s accounts to their parents’ accounts. Like many other online services, Facebook prohibits kids under 13 because federal law requires companies to obtain parental consent if they want to collect information about those children. Such information collection is central to Facebook. Every photo or status update a kid posts on Facebook could count as information collection. Many companies consider the parental-consent requirement too burdensome, so they simply ban all children under 13 instead. But that ban is difficult to enforce. In many cases, parents themselves help children skirt it by setting up profiles for them and lying about

their ages. There are an estimated 7.5 million kids under 13 on Facebook, out of more than 900 million users worldwide. In a statement, Facebook noted that many recent reports have highlighted “just how difficult it is to enforce age restrictions on the Internet, especially when parents want their children to access online content and services.� “We are in continuous dialogue with stakeholders, regulators and other policymakers about how best to help parents keep their kids safe in an evolving online environment,� the company said. Relaxing the ban on younger children could be a long way off, or never get implemented, as happens with many features that Facebook tests. The report comes just two weeks after Facebook began trading stock as a public company. To James Steyer, the CEO of the non-profit Common Sense Media, Facebook’s discussions on permitting young kids to join is about expanding its audience - and profits.

Stingrays open with big splash BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor


The Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association (KSYSA) U13 Boys rep team took top honours at a tournament in Creston on the weekend. The team made up of players from Trail, Castlegar, Fruitvale and Rossland played against two 14-year-old teams – one from Cranbrook and the other from Creston along with a U-13 team from Creston. The KSYSA U13 Boys went undefeated the entire tournament, winning three games and tying one, a great tune up for the upcoming provincial playdowns. Back row from left: Coach Richard Magner, Christian Macasso, Kaedan Magner, Isaac Lunn, Ryan Cromarty, Callum O’Shea, Eric Pilla, Matthew Zwick, Brandon Mock, Brad Baldwin, assistant coach Ralph Lunn. Middle row: Camilo Matamoros, Evan Cabana, Dylan Page, Jonathan Rollins, Matthew Zarr, Tyler Theobald. Front Row: goalies Adam Fasthuber and Ajeet Dhaliwal.


Junior golfers battle at Bucyk Rossland’s Braden Mckay takes division, wins exemptions BY TIMES STAFF Rain and wind greeted 28 of the best junior golfers from the West and East Kootenays on Saturday for the first two rounds of the Johnny Bucyk Championship. The junior golfers tore through 36 holes of golf on the tough Creston golf course on Saturday in very wet and windy conditions, and then another 18 on Sunday. When the final putt was made, Jared duToit from Kimberly took medalist honors with rounds of 73, 77, and 71 for a total of five over par, and Braden McKay from the Rossland-Trail Country Club finished first in the 14 and under divisions with rounds of 84, 75, and 86. The Kimberley golfer made very few mistakes over the three rounds and his putting was outstanding. He made numerous putts in the 12- to 15-foot range to save pars and when he had the opportunity he rolled in birdie putts, making nine over the three rounds. It has been an outstanding start to the 2012 golf season for

du Toit, capped off by a first-place finish in the MJT Morgan Creek tournament that earned him an exemption into the world junior held in San Diego in July. He then placed second at the CN Pacific junior golf tournament, which won him a pass into the Canadian Juniors in Nova Scotia. McKay was the West Kootenay local junior circuit medalist last week at Redstone and he finished the Johnny Bucyk 19 shots ahead of Nolan Renwick from Nelson, who finished second in the U-14 division. McKay’s 75 Saturday was the second best round of the day, a remarkable score considering it was his second 18 of the day and scored in very wet and windy conditions. Finishing second in the 15 - 18 year division was Joel Tremendue from Cranbrook who finished nine shots back of du Toit. Scott Merriam also from Cranbrook took third. Ethan Paton from Salmo tied for second with Renwick in the U-14 group. The top three finishers in each age division earned exemptions into the CJGA PING Canadian Junior Match Play Championship and the Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship. Both events will be held later in July in Ontario.

If the Trail Stingrays swim team’s first meet of the season with new head coach Samme Beatson is any indication of things to come, the swim team is in for a very successful year. The Stingrays topped all other teams including an upstart Revelstoke Aquaducks swim team that invaded the West Kootenay determined to take home top spot. But the Rays prevailed amassing 816 points over the two-day meet, while the Aquaducks took second with 675 and Castlegar third with 349. “We had an amazing meet this weekend,” said Beatson. “We had lots of aggregate medals as well. The team achieved countless best times, including many individuals who set best times in the 50 freestyle race on Saturday and bettered them still in the freestyle relays on Sunday.” It was a great start to the swim season for the Rays, even first-time meet goers like Amie, Kiri and Tayne Steven, Logan Blair, T. J. Worsley, and Elijah Grebe preformed courageously, said Beatson. “I am incredibly proud of the team’s performance, and I can’t wait to see even more improvement over the season.” Next up is the Grand Forks meet this weekend followed by the Trail Stingrays Swim Meet hitting the pool June 16-17 at the Trail Aquatic Centre. Results: Dylan Kormendy placed first overall for Division 1 boys, while Ian Markus was runner up in Div. 2 boys. Eden Kormendy took top spot overall and Kayla Fraser placed third in Div. 3 girls and Diego Greenwood placed first and Josh Ballarin second for Div 3 boys, In Div. 4 girls, Tess Markus came second, while Sharman Thomas placed third for Div. 4 boys. Jennifer Chung took the Div. 5 girls aggregate and Madison Green placed second. Martin Gonzalez raced to second in Div. 5 boys, Megan Robertson placed second in Div. 6 girls, as Eric Gonzalez claimed first overall in Div. 6 boys and Timothy Chung third.


Fielding help BY TIMES STAFF With the help of volunteers, Trail Minor Baseball has almost completed work on Andy Bilesky Park, and organizers are now scouring the area for volunteers to staff a number of different venues for the Little League B.C. Provincials July 20-28. Volunteers are needed in every aspect of the tournament, from grooming the infield to announcing the game. “Our host committee has been organizing this event since last summer,” said co-chair of the organizing committee Shannon Morris Ballarin. “We are now able to focus our attentions on the actual tournament and are in need of volunteers for tournament week.” After leveling the playing field, putting up new fencing, building new dugouts and umpire digs, a small but committed group of volunteers finished laying sod in the infield and are just putting the finishing touches to the park. As a result, organizers are now seeking volunteers for the concession, 50/50 draws, grounds crew, host-info booth, scorekeepers, score clock, game announcers, and Pointstreak updaters. Anyone interested in volunteering for a slot or two can email Heather Johnston at or go to the Trail Minor Baseball website under the “2012 Provincials” tab.

Fishing Report The West Kootenay Fishing Report is a supplement, now appearing the first Thursday of the month, intended to inform and help locals and visitors enjoy the wonderful natural resource available to us all. Send a hot tip, photo, or report to Kootenay Lake The Bill King derby was held over the may long weekend with the winner Bill Sawatsky winning just over $3,000 for his 34.25- inch (18-pounds four-ounces) rainbow. In second was Shane Cook winning almost $2,000 for his 33-inch (18-pound two-ounce) fish and third went to Steve Sims 32 7/8 inches (16-pound six-ounce) Congratulations guys and thank you to all entrants. Conditions: At present water temp is around 52 degrees, prime bucktailing water, but the water is up due to all the rain and runoff. Technique: Troll around three to four miles per hour. With the high water, the main problem will be keeping the floaters off your lures so using plugs, apexes, Brownies weighted-skull flies or even a splitshot weight may be the answer. Lures and Flies: Black still Bill Sawatsky took home the grand seems to be the trigger color ever prize for the Bill King Derby over the since the black ant hatch. Again May long weekend with this 34.25the Lyman #16 (of which no one inch monster Gerrard rainbow. has any) Tomic black/grey, black/ white, The Skull 215, 214,or 228, Splitshots 215, black racoon, Russ’s favorite, caveman or hillbilly. Gerrard spawning return in Lardeau River: This year, B.C. Fisheries started recording fish on Apr. 17 and the spawn peaked on May 7, recording 1039 spawning Gerrard rainbows on that day. A definite improvement compared to last year’s peak at 995 and the year before at 604. The Kootenay Lake fishing report is provided courtesy of Randy Zelonka owner of Gill and Gift in Balfour. Area Lakes: Fishing on the small lakes has been excellent. Good lakes in the area include Summitt and Box lakes, Rosebud lake, Erie and Champion lakes, Nancy Green lake, Wilgress and Jewel lakes are all great to fish. All lakes are stocked most every year with various trout species. Fly patterns: The spring thaw is over and fish are into their respective feeding cycles. Chronomid patterns on all the lakes have been very good. Chronomids then leeches will be the first and best flies pulled out of your flybox. With new growth on the lake bottoms damsels, dragon flies, sedge or caddis will all be good choices for fishing. Technique: Fish the chronomid with a floating line and long enough leader to reach the bottom of shoal or lake - eight to 15 feet. Place a strike indicator on the leader then add tippet to the desired length to reach bottom. If fishing deep, I like to add a swivel or small split shot about 15 to 18 inches above the fly. This helps sink the fly right to the depth needed, usually a foot above the bottom. The indicator goes under when the fish has taken the fly and gives you the heads up to set the hook. Fly of the Week: Chironomid fly Hook- 2487 TMC or 2457 Tiemco Size - 12, 14, or 16 Bead - white to match size of hook Thread- UTC 140 black Tail - two strands crystal flash Body - utc black thread Rib - silver wire Wing pad- thorax, orange holo flash a bou Finish- coat fly with two coats ‘gloss coat, fly head cement Columbia River: It’s been an interesting year to date for the Columbia. Conditions: High water has moved the fish around and produced interesting hatches. The Slocan River is high and dirty, filling the Kootenay and Columbia with debris so will have to wait a few days to clear. Hatches and Fly patterns: The cicada and ant hatch came and went with small hatches this year. The mayflies are always present. Pale morning and pale evening hatches, (the little yellow ones) are starting to become more present. When I see splashy rises I relate this to fish feeding on the mayflies. We have seen caddis activity for a good month and a half with some major hatches happening the last week in May. Technique: During the day fish a caddis pupa then, if still out in the evening, when fish are feeding aggressively, put on a dry caddis and entice a take on the surface. If fishing the pupa early in the day/evening be ready for aggressive takes, the fish will be hungry and super hot this time of year. Hang on to your rod and carry lots of backing, some of these fish will peel out a good hundred yards in no time. Till next time, tight lines. Area lakes and Columbia River report are provided by avid fly angler and fly-tier Rod Zavaduk of Castlegar Sports & Fly shop.


Oilers extend Tambellini tenure THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers and general manager Steve Tambellini have agreed on a contract extension. Tambellini, a Trail native, has been GM of the team since 2008. He’s currently looking for a new head coach. Tom Renney’s contract wasn’t renewed after the season. The Oilers haven’t made the playoffs since reaching the Stanley Cup final in 2006.

Edmonton has the first overall pick in the NHL draft later this month for the third straight year. They made Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Taylor Hall the No. 1 selection in the previous two drafts. Tambellini also says he’s fielded some “soft calls� from teams interested in the No. 1 draft pick. However, the Edmonton Oilers general manager says it will take a significant offer for him to deal away the selection before the draft in Pittsburgh later this month.


Trail product Bay ready to play THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON - The New York Mets activated outfielder Jason Bay from the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday. Bay, who spent six weeks on the DL due to a rib fracture, was not in the lineup for the Mets’ game against the Washington Nationals. Manager Terry Collins said Bay had been sick for a few days

and he planned to play him on Thursday. The Trail native played left field on Tuesday night for Class-A St. Lucie in his second game of rehabilitation. “From what I’ve been told, and from what I feel, it feels completely healed,� Bay said. “I was prepared to play, but at the same time I think at this point one more day’s not gonna

Water meters may be on the horizon BY CASSANDRA CHIN Grand Forks Gazette

As part of the City of Grand Forks’ fiveyear financial plan, residential properties may soon see universal water metering. The city’s universal water metering program for industrial, commercial and institutional uses has already been completed. Over the past several years, the city has completed the water conservation plan, the water system audit and demand management plan, the drought management and conservation plan. The results of the studies support the recommendation of implementing a universal water metering program to reduce water

consumption. Lynne Burch, the city’s chief administrative officer, noted that the universal water metering program began over 10 years ago. “We started with the industrial businesses and went from there,” she said. “As new apartment buildings were built, those were included so all that’s left is the residential homes.” The reduction in water consumption would also result in a decreased volume of sewage requiring treatment. With the reduced sewage generation, this would enable the city to delay future upgrades to the sewage

treatment plant. This will also decrease treatment costs for both water produced and sewage treated. The sewage system was installed in the 1970s and there haven’t been any big upgrades since then. “We’re talking about big time dollars for that, so it’s not done often,” Burch explained. According to the application to request funds, the Union of British Columbia Municipalities delivers federal gas tax funding in the province and city staff proposes that the city apply for General Strategic Priorities Fund funding of $1,216,800. This funding is 100 per cent of the total

estimated cost for the universal residential water metering program, which means the city would not have to pay for the program, explained Burch. “The city will not have to pay for anything,” she said. “But we can’t start until we hear back about the funding and I’m not sure when we will hear back about it.” Currently, the City of Grand Forks pumps water to a reservoir located to the east of the city. The electricity costs associated with pumping, as well as the wear on the pumps would be reduced if water demands could be reduced up to 25 per cent.

Ceremony connects trails BY BARRY COULTER Cranbrook Townsman

The North Star Rails To Trails (R2T) became part of the longest, grandest recreational trail network in the world, at a special ceremony held Saturday at the Wycliffe rail bridge - the approximate halfway mark between Cranbrook and Kimberley. A crowd - most of which had bicycled from the two towns - gathered above St. Mary River to hear various dignitaries mark the occasion with a few words, and to witness the unveiling of a commemorative plaque and a sign announcing that R2T was now part of the sumptuous Trans Canada Trail. Saturday happened to be International Trails Day, and the theme of the event, appropriately enough, was “Connecting Communities.” John Mandryk, member of the North Star Rails to Trails Advisory Committee, served as Master of Ceremonies. Al Skucas, member of the Rails to Trails advisory committee, intro-

duced Deborah Apps of Calgary, President and CEO of the Trans Canada Trail, to formally incorporate R2T into the Trans Canada Trail. The Trans Canada Trail is the world’s longest network of recreational trails. When fully connected, the Trail will stretch 22,500 kilometres from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic oceans. “The theme of ‘Connecting Communities’ is so important,” Apps said, “not just for Cranbrook and Kimberley but for (the Trans Canada Trail) project. Our mission is to connect Canadians from coast to coast.” Apps said at that very moment, similar celebrations were underway all over Canada. “When you look at what you’ve accomplished, you can understand what we’re trying to do in 1,000 communities across our country.” Apps spoke of the TCT as an allegory - “It shows how we’re really connected as Canadians.” She added that the R2T was a “gem, and the Trans Canada Trail was a necklace.”

Unhappiness is no reason to ignore wedding vows Dear Annie: I am 58 and have been married to “Hank” for 24 years. I have two children from a previous marriage, and Hank and I have a 21-year-old son together. I’ve tried everything to be a good wife, but Hank never has been affectionate, and our sex life is nonexistent. Several years ago, I learned that he has cheated on me for most of our marriage. My older son caught him the first time, and I made Hank move out. We went to counseling, and I let him come back home, although I believe the only reason he returned was because of our son. Recently, I received calls telling me Hank was cheating again, but he denied it. I finally hired a private investigator, who confirmed that Hank was having an affair. I told him to leave her alone and thought that would end it, but it didn’t. I discovered he has been seeing



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

this woman for at least 12 years. I love my husband, but won’t tolerate sharing him anymore. I knew when we married that we weren’t soul mates, but I felt we could have a good marriage. Hank knows if he leaves, his son will despise him and he won’t be able to see the grandchildren. Should I talk to the Other Woman and ask her to stop seeing him? What do I do? -- Desperate in Indiana Dear Indiana: Contacting the Other Woman will not produce the result you want: for Hank to stop cheating. He is unhappy in his marriage and thinks this gives him license

to ignore his wedding vows. It does not. But you are also unhappy, twisting yourself into knots, trying to make Hank a faithful, loving husband. It isn’t working. Get some counseling. Find out what it’s worth to you to keep your marriage intact and what your next step should be. Dear Annie: My daughter and son-inlaw had a little celebration for my grandson’s first birthday. The baby gets fussy in big crowds, and their house is small, so they decided to invite only the grandparents. Several days after the party, I received an angry email from a niece stating, “How nice it would have been to actually have been invited to the party.” She copied all of my relatives. I responded, explaining why the guest list was so small, and chastised her for complaining in front of the entire family. Then her mother (my husband’s sister) sent an

email chewing me out, saying she and her husband were hurt because they weren’t invited, either, and accused me of “attacking” my niece. My brother-inlaw sent my daughter a text message saying the same thing. I apologized to my niece for chastising her, but I was thoroughly annoyed. I don’t think my daughter and sonin-law did anything wrong by keeping the party small. I feel these relatives were very rude. How could we have handled this situation better? -- Fed Up in Cornwall, Pa. Dear Fed Up: Your daughter did nothing wrong. Your niece and her parents are thinskinned and hypersensitive. You could have replied, “We’re so sorry you felt slighted. It was not intentional. Only grandparents were invited.” Then ignore them. Dear Annie: “Bob” was unhappy that his stepchildren don’t call

him “Dad.” You failed to give Bob your usual good advice: to get a complete medical checkup. Bob said he is withdrawing from family members who love him and waking up at 3:30 a.m. feeling despond-

ent. I happen to know that an underactive thyroid can cause those symptoms, and few doctors check that in men. -- R. Dear R.: Thank you so much for mentioning this possibility. Other readers pointed out that

Bob’s obsessive focus on his title could indicate depression. We love how our readers look out for one another. We hope Bob will schedule a complete checkup soon and ask his physician to check for these things.

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Friday, June 8, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) What a difference a day makes! Relations with family members are particularly sweet and affectionate today. In some fashion, you hope to achieve your dreams. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Today you might spend a lot of time daydreaming or woolgathering. No worries, it’s just one of those days where your mind keeps drifting off. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a poor day for important financial decisions because your mind is elsewhere. In addition, you might not have all the facts, or your facts might be incorrect. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel inspired and full of imaginative ideas today. Talk to others about your feelings, and be there to listen to someone who might

need it. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might be able to perform an important service for someone today and not even know it. Someone might need you to listen or give a genuine response. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) A confidential discussion with a friend could be very beneficial to either one of you -- or both. Your efforts with a charitable group might help someone in need. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Use your influence with someone in power if you can, to make things easier for someone else who is down on his or her luck. After all, what goes around comes around. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, which is why you will enjoy visiting beautiful places. Parks,

museums, art galleries and university campuses might stir your soul. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) If you have to share something with someone today, you probably will be generous because you feel sympathetic. This is a good thing. After all, we’re all in this big soup together. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Discussions with partners

and close friends will be sympathetic, genuine and caring today. You might be surprised at how willing someone else is to divulge his or her personal feelings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You might be inspired to help a co-worker or someone in need today. This is a good thing. It’s good to do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Family discussions will be mutually sympathetic today. Relationships with parents will be equally gentle and caring. (It’s a good day for this kind of discussion.) YOU BORN TODAY You’re clever, original, yet precise and careful. You’re aware of your appearance and the impression you create on others. Frequently, many of you develop a particular









technique to the point of becoming an expert, even if you don’t seek this. You value your privacy. In the year ahead, you will build or construct something that is valuable to you.

Judge keeps cull fight alive

Invermere Valley Echo

Members of the Invermere Deer Protection Society (IDPS) have won a major court battle against the District of Invermere (DOI) in the latest chapter of the Invermere deer cull saga. The DOI had made an application to dismiss the civil lawsuit filed against the district in February for

its deer protection bylaw permitting a cull and to recover legal costs from the IDPS; however, on May 29, a Supreme Court of British Columbia judge ruled in favour of the IDPS, meaning they are free to continue with their suit to challenge the DOI Urban Deer Management Program. The district had unsuccessfully argued the lawsuit was now a

moot issue as the deer cull permit had already expired, but the judge agreed with the point made by the IDPS that the 2011 council decision to reduce Invermere urban deer numbers to 50 carried implications well into 2014. “The district is saying that there’s no point in continuing the lawsuit because the cull is over and the permit is expired, but there’s noth-

ing stopping them from killing deer in 2013,” IDPS president Devin Kazakoff told The Valley Echo. IDPS lawyer Rebeka Breder feels this case could set exactly that precedent, and believes it could have Canada-wide implications if the court’s verdict is in their favour when the case is finally heard, likely in the fall or potentially sometime next year.

Columbia Brewery wins environmental award BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Creston Valley Advance

Columbia Brewery environmental health and safety manager Tanya Ducharme flew to Whistler last week and didn’t come home empty-handed. In her carry-on bag was a prestigious Recycling Council of BC 2012 RCBC Environmental Award in the private sector category. “This award is the acknowledgement of a complete team effort at our brewery,� she said on Monday. “The buyin to our environmental initiatives by our employees has been amazing.� The award is another feather in the cap of a

Labatt brewery with a long history in Creston. “Winning this RCBC award demonstrates the commitment and dedication that the Columbia Brewery employees have to sustainability,� Ducharme said. “We’re proud to be acknowledged for improving our business and reducing its impact on the beautiful Kootenay mountain region in which we live and work.� A tradition of “continuous improvement, sustainability and environmental stewardship� that goes back more than 40 years has contributed to the brewery’s success, she said.

Since launching Labatt’s Better World initiative in 2007, Columbia Brewery has slashed water consumption by 20 per cent, cut fuel usage by 16.9 per cent and reduced electricity use by 7.1 per cent, while recycling 99.4 per cent of waste and byproducts. Other notable Labatt achievements included starting the practice of recycling spent ingredients as animal feed in 1957, introducing Canada’s first scrap metal aluminum recycling system in 1981 and adopting the industrywide reusable glass bottle in 1984. “It’s very encouraging to see private
