Diamond celebration for ‘Jewel of the Kootenays’ BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

The Village of Warfield is celebrating its diamond jubilee and everyone is invited. The weekend will commemorate the village’s history on both Friday and Saturday with several events for the whole family. “It’s going to be a busy weekend,” said Teresa Mandoli the recreation coordinator for the village. On Friday everybody is welcome to attend the Warfield Community Hall for tea and music from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Citizens can also use this time to test their knowledge on the area by participating in a game about the heritage of the area. The self-proclaimed “Jewel of the Kootenays” “It’s going to be a busy is renowned for its distinct small town culture and weekend.” beautiful gardens. “It’s going to be like a TERESA MANDOLI Trivial Pursuit,” said Teresa Mandoli. “We have a little booklet that we’re going to use dating back from 1952 until now.” The tea will also include performances by Terri Mandoli and Roland Perry. The 60th anniversary will offer the community a chance to smell and taste delicious food, as well as hear local bands perform. “It’s a community filled with family and friends,” said Teresa Mandoli. “And the anniversary is great for new families who have moved to the area. It helps them experience the village and closeness some of us have through the programs offered in the community. “Usually if you meet somebody once, you start bumping into them everywhere.” The festivities will continue Saturday with a pancake breakfast in the Warfield Community Hall from 7:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. for $3 per person. The proceeds raised during this event will be used to replace the picnic tables at the pool park near the hall. “It’s a future project,” said the chief administrative officer Vince Morelli. “We’re going to be replacing some of the picnic tables at the park.” Many other activities will take place from noon to 3 p.m. at the Webster School field, including games and live entertainment for every age.

Art eases effects of life-altering injury Storefront in Waneta Plaza opens Friday to showcase efforts of West Kootenay Brain Injury Association BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

Stewart Sutherland was working on a hotel restoration project in 1998 when a 15-foot fall changed his life forever. Sutherland, 62, was working on a “beautiful” project, but the aftermath of his fall left him with a brain injury that dramatically altered his life. “I think every limb on my body was dislocated,” said Sutherland. “And it was strange because my eye was

taken out by this beautiful chair that a blacksmith made and I had been sitting on that same chair just five hours before.” After the accident, Sutherland was rushed to a hospital in Princeton, but when the medical team realized the gravity of the injuries that he sustained he was sent to Kelowna for help. After spending roughly one month in a wheel chair, Sutherland had to overcome the anger he felt about what had happened to him. To make matters worse, he could no longer work as a millwright like he had been doing for his entire life because he lost his sense of balance. “This brain injury has gone a long, long way to making me a rather strange person,”

admitted Sutherland. The brain injury forced him out of work and he became engrossed by making artwork as a blacksmith, which will be on display in the West Kootenay Brain Injury Association’s (WKBIA) new storefront in Waneta Plaza along with seven other artists from the region. The gallery will have an opening exhibition Friday between 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is free to the public, the perfect tribute for Brain Injury Awareness Month. “We’re using the new storefront to showcase artwork from members of the brain injury association,” said Jennie Kelly, outreach worker for the WKBAI. “We work with very talented (people) and we were lucky enough

to have this space donated to us by the Waneta Plaza so we wanted to show people what we can do.” The WKBIA’s new location will serve as a gallery for people suffering from brain injuries to exhibit artwork, an information and prevention centre and it will host small fundraising events for the organization, including an ongoing raffle that begins on Friday. “There is life after a brain injury,” said Kelly. “Making artwork is like a positive outcome from a brain injury. Neither (Sutherland or Dean Scott) had any artistic hankering before their injuries.” Scott, 44, suffered from an oxygen deprivation in 2006 and after overcoming a

“A lot of people walk down this area and are not impressed,� explained Sheila Adcock, a program co-ordinator with Career Development Services. Many of the program’s clients live in the area so it was a natural move for Adcock to spearhead a project, with support of building owner Paul Obal, to help brighten up the 100year old structure and surrounding area. “This is part of our community and we are proud of where we live,� she added. With the help of an army of 30 to 40 volunteers, equipment donated from various groups including Sanctuary, Community in Bloom, which supplied flowers, and the Trail Kiwanis Club, which supplied lunch. Over three dumpster bins of garbage were hauled away while flowers and shrubs were planted around the buildings and the cleanup extended to the pathways and back alleys. So many people lent a hand including one anonymous donor quietly stopped by and delivered water and muffins for everyone to snack on.

Brain injuries can happen easily FROM PAGE 1 series of obstacles like short-term memory loss, he developed an interest in working with leather. “I don’t know why my short-term memory got affected,” he said. “It was way worse than my longterm memory, but if you talk to a lot of people with brain injuries they all say the same thing.” Scott had never had an interest in working with leather until after his accident and he’s not entirely sure what triggered it, what he does know is simple: keeping busy appealed to him. “Even before I knew that I had a brain injury,” Scott said, “I just thought I could do it.” Scott cannot work as a crane specialist anymore either, and declared that despite all of the obstacles he had to overcome, there were some benefits from the accident. “It was one of the best things that ever happened to me (because) I get to raise my kids,” he said. “If I would have never had this accident, I wouldn’t get to spend as much time with them and I wouldn’t know them as well as I do now.” Scott’s family (three children and a wife) were

“patient” and helped “teach” him a lot of practical skills essential for adults to cope with daily activities. “The whole family had to adjust,” said Scott. “It took about six years to become able to function normally again. I had to re-learn everything.” He said that it’s easy to sustain a brain injury and people don’t realize it. He hopes the storefront will help people in the community learn more about the monumental effects of brain injuries. The BC Brain Injury Association estimates that up to 14,000 British Columbian’s acquire new brain injuries each year and 160,000 live with the devastating impacts of these injuries at any time. “The public isn’t aware about how little of an accident it takes to cause a brain injury,” said Scott. “Protect your head because after an accident, everything changes.” On Friday, you can show support for artists in the West Kootenay region by visiting the gallery, located near Ardene in Waneta Plaza.

21-metre sailboat that was also moored offshore. The lone person aboard the smaller boat managed to scramble to safety as it took on water, but it didn’t sink and was eventually towed to a nearby marina. Quick response from the coast guard vessel Mallard, a 10 metre rescue launch from the nearby Kitsilano base, is credited for the speedy and happy end to the emergency. The federal government plans to close the Kits base, but Tasker says the Mallard was at the scene of the collision within five minutes, rather than the half hour he believes it would have taken for the coast guard to respond from the Sea Island base, near Vancouver International Airport. Opponents of the Kits base closure warn it could cost lives because the base handles an average of 300 calls per year in the waters around English Bay, making it the busiest in Canada.


WestJet pitch planned BY STEVEN KIDD Penticton Western News

Penticton’s intensive campaign to get the attention of WestJet executives has resulted in an invitation to present the region’s case in person. It will be a very good presentation, said Penticton’s Mayor Dan Ashton, though he is reluctant to give out any details of what might be contained in it, other than the area, the people, the opportunities and why WestJet should have been here years ago. According to city

manager Annette Antoniak, the meeting is tentatively scheduled for June 28, and they are planning to make a 30-minute presentation to the WestJet executives. Ashton said there is lots of work being done behind the scenes to get ready. They have already sent out letters requesting support from municipalities, regional districts and Indian bands. An airport survey/study has also been done, and the statistics and results will also be ready for the presentation.

A different kind of roadside test is being conducted this year, checking drivers for alcohol and drugs as part of a research project.

Drivers tested for alcohol and drugs BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

VICTORIA – Roadside surveys are set to begin around B.C. this month to continue a research project that tests for marijuana, cocaine and other drugs as well as alcohol use by drivers. The B.C. government is spending up to $250,000 for the seventh survey of its kind in the province, part of a national program run by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. Previous surveys have shown that in random samples, about 10 per cent of drivers test positive for alcohol and seven to eight per cent have a detectable level

of drugs in their systems. This year’s survey is being done in the same communities as the last one in 2010: Vancouver, Saanich, Abbotsford, Prince George and Kelowna. The roadside surveys are supervised by police and use handheld breathalyzers, but they are for information only and won’t result in charges or suspensions. Drivers are asked to voluntarily and confidentially answer questions, provide a breath sample and also a saliva sample using a plastic stick with an absorbent pad on the end. Saliva samples are sent for lab analysis

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 ďŹ re 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

to detect marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other opiates, amphetamines and common sedatives. The test doesn’t determine if the driver was impaired by drugs, but only if there is a level detectable by the lab test. Ottawa passed legislation in 2008 to give police authority to demand physical sobriety tests and collect blood, urine or saliva samples for drug testing, but no roadside test or legal limits currently exist for drug impairment. B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said police do have options. “Police can issue a 24-hour prohibition at the roadside if they suspect drug impairment,� Bond said. “They can also take the driver into custody, so trained, certified police officers can conduct a very accurate drug recognition and evaluation exam and ask for blood tests to support Criminal Code charges.� The surveys found that while alcohol use increases late at night and on weekends, drug use by drivers is more consistently found at all times and days. The surveys were extended to Prince George and Kelowna for the first time in 2010, and the survey company found drivers more likely to agree to the interview and samples than those in the Lower Mainland. Of the 2,480 vehicles selected for testing in 2010, 86 per cent of drivers provided a breath sample and 71 per cent agreed to give a sample of oral fluid.

Rae bows out of Liberal leadership race Justin Trudeau becomes automatic favorite to lead national party THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The future of the once-mighty Liberal party became even more unpredictable Wednesday after its most experienced and polished performer scratched himself from the leadership race just hours before the unofficial starting gun was to go off. Bob Rae’s decision to remain on the sidelines - continuing to serve as interim leader until a new, permanent leader is chosen next spring - will likely put even more pressure on Justin Trudeau, the only other prospective contender with a high profile, to enter the race. The 40-year-old Montreal MP and eldest son of Liberal icon Pierre Trudeau has repeatedly ruled out a leadership bid this time, citing the desire to spend time with his young children. But over the past month, his resolve has noticeably wavered as the pressure has mounted on him to change his mind.

Trudeau said Wednesday the pressure has been “enormous.� He said Rae’s decision to opt out means the party “will have less of a leadership race,� but insisted it will have no bearing on whether he finally decides to take the plunge. “My own (initial) decision ... to not go was independent of what Bob decided to do,� Trudeau said. “Any decision to reverse my prior decision - which is something that I have to do on reflection and in conversation with my family, if indeed I am going to go back on my previously stated ‘no’ - will be done independently of whether or not Bob is running or not.� Trudeau’s youth, telegenic looks and Liberal lineage have made him an unparalleled star in the party’s shrunken universe. He is the Liberals’ best fundraising draw and polls suggest he’s the most popular choice for

leader by a large margin. His victory earlier this year in a much-touted charity boxing match against a Conservative senator was seen as many as testament to his ability to draw attention and perform outside the traditional political box. However, it remains to be seen whether current polls are meaningful or simply a reflection of Trudeau’s name recognition. He has repeatedly gotten himself in hot water with impulsive comments. He had to apologize recently for a shouted expletive in the House of Commons and had to reaffirm his faith in a united Canada after musing that he might favour Quebec separation if he thought Canadians genuinely shared Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s values. Whatever his deficits, however, Trudeau would be hard to beat. With Rae out of the game, none of the other putative contenders can hold a candle to Trudeau in terms of profile or popularity.

Goodbye to those greenhouse gas goals


n February this column asked the question: “Are B.C.’s greenhouse gas reduction targets history?” The answer is contained in a new draft plan from BC Hydro on how to meet future power demand. And while it’s not explicitly stated, the answer is yes. The draft plan was released in May for discussion purposes, but so far there hasn’t been much discussion. This is surprising given some of the recommendations, such as firing up the Burrard Thermal natural gas power plant more often and buying fossil fuel power from the North American market to keep up to demand. The plan confirms a few things that have been evident for a while. Dreams of exporting B.C. hydroelectric power are gone for the foreseeable future. And with mining ramping up along with natural gas

development and population growth, BC Hydro now projects electricity demand could rise by 50 per cent over the next 20 years. The emergence of huge shale gas sources in B.C. and across the United States has changed the North American energy picture dramatically, as U.S. electricity producers replace coal by burning cheaper and cleaner gas to ramp up power production. B.C. is losing gas market share in the U.S., its only export customer for heating fuel and electricity use. Former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate goals officially remain in place: 33 per cent greenhouse gas reduction by 2020 and a whopping 80 per cent by 2050. If the gas boom proceeds as planned, B.C. domestic emissions will not be down, but up considerably by 2020. Premier Christy Clark has a new target for 2020:


FLETCHER B.C. Views three liquefied natural gas production lines feeding high-pressure tankers at Kitimat, for export to Asia. Not only will B.C. need to buy gas-fired power from outside the province to keep up to industrial and residential demand, but the natural gas industry will need its own new gas-fired electricity to produce LNG for export. Natural gas passed forestry as B.C.’s top resource revenue source many years ago. In 2005, the volatile gas price spiked

up and produced $1 billion in windfall profits that allowed the B.C. government to buy a rare period of public sector labour peace through the 2010 Olympics. Now a glut of shale gas has pushed the North American price down from its historic range of $4 to $6 per thousand cubic feet to about $2.40. Despite that low price, gas producers in B.C. are going flat out to develop the Horn River and Montney shale gas deposits in northeast B.C. I asked David Pryce, vice-president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, why so much gas is being developed now. He said producers have made huge investments in B.C. shale gas drilling rights, and are in an international race to supply LNG to Asian countries where the price is currently four times higher than in North America.

Whatever the domestic price, B.C. gas producers have to show LNG investors such as Mitsubishi and Korea Gas that they can fill a steady procession of LNG tankers at a competitive rate. If LNG doesn’t fly here, B.C.’s gas export market soon evaporates. Currently gas producers pay about $400 million a year in royalties, and that much again to buy up shale gas drilling rights. The industry already employs about 12,000 workers in B.C. The B.C. government has little choice but to redefine its climate targets. Instead of cutting domestic emissions, it will try to take credit for displacing coal power in Asia. Fortunately, B.C.’s main coal exports are for high-grade coal used in steel-making.

Institutional Agenda As a governmental agency, the CBC has a wide-ranging mandate to promote national identity. In more practical terms, their first priority is securing and protecting their sources of funding. This makes for awkward relationships with governments, whom they are supposed to hold accountable, despite the fact that these people are the ones signing their cheques. As an institution that came of age during the Trudeau era, the CBC’s notion of national identity has in many ways never moved on. This makes for a portrayal of Canada tied to high public spending and centralised government. This institutional bias cannot help but carry over into its coverage and programming. I do not question the sincerity of those who work for the CBC in fulfilling its mandate, or that they have contributed to a sense of national unity through their work. I do question whether their approach is the best one possible, or is fair to taxpayers. Their ability to influence public opinion puts them in a position where they can only be in a conflict of interest. Again, I am not calling into question their motivation, but simply pointing out that when an institution simultaneously has the duty to define, and at the same time to promote culture, they will have difficulties distinguishing between the two. 6.

Stingrays set to host competition in annual meet BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff

If there’s one meet on the annual swim calendar that athletes look forward to it’s the one in their home pool. This weekend, the Trail Stingrays will welcome teams from across the zone for the annual meet at the Trail Aquatic Centre. First-year coach Samme Beatson knows full well the excitement, nerves and pressure that come with competing in front of family and friends. “It’s a lot of fun for them to host the meet for their friends and competition from other clubs. It gives the kids a sense of pride and something to prove in the pool.” The big advantage to hosting a meet is the ability to compete in a pool the swimmers constantly train in. “It’s a great meet for the swimmers because they’re all comfortable in this pool,” added Beatson. She’s eager to watch her team perform after it first-place finish in the season -opening meet in Nelson at the beginning of June. The Stingrays easily amassed the most points and posted so many personal bests that it would appear tough to top so early in the season. “So far this season the team has

blown me away,” Beatson admitted. “I am amazed by how well this season has started and I know that we have amazing things yet to come.” She isn’t concerned about the team trying to top the Nelson performance but rather is focused making gradual improvements. “As long as all my swimmers are trying their hardest I cannot expect anything more from them,” said Beatson. “For this meet I expect nothing but the best effort from all of my swimmers and with such a great group of kids I am confident that is exactly what I will get.” The meet goes Saturday and Sunday, with the majority of heat races in morning and finals in the afternoon. Sunday afternoon will also feature the team relay events. Meanwhile, some of the club’s swimmers were in competition last weekend at the Grand Forks “B” meet. The Stingrays posted a clean sweep of the Div. 4 boys’ division with Sharman Thomas, Logan Blair and T.J. Worsley taking gold, silver and bronze respectively. Jesse Bartsoff and Megan Robertson took the boys’ and girls’ gold in Div. 6. Maddy Fraser collected gold in Div. 1 girls, Sam Grebe took gold in Div. 8 and Daniel Merry won bronze in Div. 5.


U-17 girls eye provincial berth BY TIMES STAFF


Trail Stingrays’ swimmer Eden Kormendy works on her butterfly stroke during training at the Trail Aquatic Centre this week. The Stingrays will be in the friendly confines of their home pool this weekend when the club hosts its annual meet on Saturday and Sunday.

The Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association U-17 girls’ team is one win away from a provincial berth. Monday night in

Nelson, the squad scored a 4-0 win over Nelson to win the first game of the homeand-home aggregate playoff. Goal scorers were Danika Bartlett,

Kim Cutler, Jenna Stoushnow and Kaycee McKinnon. The team can clinch the berth tonight at the Lower Sunningdale at 6 p.m.

It came down to a shootout to determine which U-13 boys’ team would represent the Kootenay region at the B.C. Soccer provincials. Nelson and the Kootenay South Youth Soccer Association (KSYSA) team battled through two scoreless games forcing a shootout to settle the defensive stalemate. In the end, Kootenay South prevailed with a 2-0 win in the shootout to earn the berth to the provincials in Aldergrove in early July.

Encourage mother to address anxiety disorder Dear Annie: I’m 16 years old and deeply worried about my mother. I believe she has an undiagnosed anxiety disorder that’s getting worse. She constantly stresses about every little thing. I can’t remember the last time I saw her totally relaxed. Mom once had a panic attack so severe that she strained several muscles, causing intense pain for weeks. She knows that her anxiety is unhealthy. Several years ago, she mentioned it to her doctor, but was told that she did not require any treatment. Mom is stubborn, so despite the fact that she is getting worse, she will not ask for help again. Annie, is there anything I can do? I hate seeing my mom in pain. -- Michigan Dear Michigan: Is your dad in the picture? What about grandparents, aunts or uncles? You shouldn’t have to shoulder this on your own. Please talk to your mother and let



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

her know how worried you are. It would help to have another trusted adult speak to her, as well. Encourage her to contact the Anxiety and Depression Association of America at for information. In the meantime, see if you can get her to participate in some simple exercise program with you -- perhaps a walk after dinner or a weekend bike ride. Exercise can help relieve some symptoms of anxiety. Dear Annie: I’m getting married in two months. Yesterday, I received an invitation to my cousin’s bridal shower, which made me realize that none of my bridesmaids has both-

ered to ask if I would like one. My maid of honor lives 16 hours away and is planning my bachelorette party. She can only make the trip for the weekend of the wedding. However, I have three other bridesmaids who live nearby. For one of them, I was the maid of honor and planned a shower. I am now left to purchase my own honeymoon lingerie and feel I am missing out on another celebration of this big step in my life. I know it is rude to ask for a shower, and bringing up my disappointment will just cause unneeded drama. What can I do? -- Disappointed in Mexico, Mo. Dear Missouri: The point of a shower is to help a bride furnish her new home, and with so many couples living together before marriage, the events have become more inventive, but less necessary. As the bride, it is OK to ask your bridesmaids

whether there will be a lingerie shower, so you can plan accordingly, but you may not demand that they have one. Dear Annie: “Concerned Parents” are worried that their 42-year-old divorced daughter got back together with her violent boyfriend. He threw bricks through her window and punched her in the eye because he found out she got drunk and slept with another man. The boyfriend has now joined AA and is getting anger management counseling. I agree with your response. But why didn’t you also suggest that the daughter join AA for getting drunk and jumping in the sack with another man? How understanding do you think men are? I would advise men to stay away from this drunken nymphomaniac. -- O.B. Dear O.B.: “Drunken nymphomaniac” is a bit of an overstatement. For all we know, this is the

first and only time she has done such a thing, and while she is clearly in the wrong for cheating, it does not justify her boyfriend’s violent reaction. However, if the parents notice that this is a pattern for their daughter, you are abso-

lutely right that she should seek help. DearReaders:Today is Flag Day and the 33rd Annual Pause for the Pledge of Allegiance at 7 p.m. (Eastern time). For more information, log on to
