City offers to fund half of skate park project BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

After years of debate a skate park proposed to the City of Trail is another step closer to becoming a reality. On Monday night in the regular council meeting, the city committed to funding one half of the estimated $550,000 cost for the proposed skate park. But before construction on this project moves forward the skateboard committee is expected to raise the other half of the money required. “The city will quite often enter into partnerships like that for the construction of either amenity areas or recreational facilities,” explained corporate administrator Michelle McIsaac. “What we do is come up with a 50/50 type cost sharing arrangement and the external group, in this case it’s the skateboard park committee, has their funding in place. “Then, the city steps up and we undertake construction so we wouldn’t get started until the money is in place.” The Columbia Youth Community Development Centre (YCDC) has supported the project by fundraising, raising awareness and supporting youth in their efforts to move forward on this project. “The YCDC makes up only one aspect of a fundraising committee,” said Morgan-River Jones, the coordinator at the Columbia YCDC. “Additional fundraising will be the responsibility of the entire skate park committee.” But there’s no denying the weight of the YCDC’s involvement on a project of this scale, a result that could have been triggered when the YCDC backed a group of youth who petitioned the city when the idea was initially raised in Trail council. “The YCDC is an integral part of the Skateboard Park Committee and they’ve already done some fundraising at various events,” said McIsaac. “They’ve done T-shirt sales in the past, but they’re also seeking funding through external grant opportunities. “So, they made up applications through the CBT Community Initiatives Funding and the Skateboard Park Committee with YCDC, being a part of that, will be looking at other funding sources—essentially grant opportunities.”

Group leads battle against invasive weed BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

There’s good weed and there’s bad weed. And the bad ones are nonnative plants that threaten to proliferate in local waters, causing inestimable damage to the region’s ecosystem, according to the Central Kootenay Invasive Plant Committee (CKIPC). But now there’s good money going after the bad weed as the CKIPC recently received a chunk of change from the province to nip the bad in the bud, including the

Greater Trail’s public enemy number one: Eurasian water milfoil. Although the committee won’t be using all of their $49,500 to fight the good fight in the region against the non native, invasive aquatic species, they are raising awareness for users of the Columbia River and Champion Lakes to help stop its spread. The committee is continuing with its prevention awareness campaign for recreation users of those bodies of water— as well as Christina Lake and the Kootenay River—

promoting “Clean drain and dry before leaving a water body or entering a new one,” said Crystal Klym, CKIPC program manager. “One of the biggest problems with Eurasian milfoil is that is can be transported throughout lakes and river systems by boats and recreationalists. Little bits can be caught on the motor and then transported from one body to another,” she said. “So if folks can just have a look at the bottom of their boat to make sure it is clean

of plants, that would help stop its spread.” Eurasian water milfoil can grow from broken off stems which increases the rate in which the plant can spread and grow. The challenge with an invasive species like Eurasian water milfoil in general is that, once it is introduced into a region, it can spread quite rapidly and then displace native plants and animals, impeding recreation by clogging waterways and beaches, and choking boat propellers.

Special to the Times

Tiny fragments reportedly from a meteorite that landed near Beaver Creek almost 120 years ago are being auctioned online. Nine pieces of the space rock, each about the size of a Rice Krispie, have fetched between $10 and $93 on eBay in the last two months. Two different sellers have put them on the block, one in Taiwan and the other in Kansas. While the provenance of these bits is murky, the Beaver Creek meteorite is one of only three verified in BC. (The others were at Revelstoke in 1965 and Tagish Lake in 2000.) Its story is well documented, but little known in this area. Between 3 and 4 p.m. on May 26, 1893, a meteor exploded above Beaver Creek, about 10 miles from its junction with the Columbia River, in 15 to 20 rapid-fire bursts. The Spokane Review of June 2, in a story headlined “Missiles from the Sky,� said the noise was heard at Sayward (now Columbia Gardens), Waneta, and Northport. Two engineers surveying the Nelson and Fort Sheppard Railway at first thought it was thunder or a dynamite blast. “They were working in thick, heavy timber, and therefore could see nothing, and no fragments fell close enough to be heard strike the ground,� the Review said. However, moments later, a man named J.W. Gerling heard a whizzing sound as he walked along Beaver Creek, “and as he looked up to see whence it came, it grew louder and louder until a stone struck the ground not far from where he was standing.� He searched the bushes, but couldn’t find it. Railway contractor Ed McLeod, meanwhile, said the explosion seemed almost directly above him. A fragment fell within 50 feet, and although it buried itself, he was able to dig it out. It weighed four or five pounds.



According to the Review, “One or two other fragments were observed to fall and two laborers were very nearly struck by one piece.â€? The next morning, engineer James Hislop, working near where McLeod found his specimen, came upon a depression “about the size of a badger hole, and evidently freshly made, as loose earth had fallen back in it.â€? With fellow engineers E.L. McNair and Otto Austin, he dug three feet down to find a rock similar to McLeod’s that weighed about 25 pounds. “It was taken to camp and is now in Mr. Hislop’s possession, who values it highly,â€? the Review said. Hislop went to Washington DC with his specimen and sold it — reportedly for a dollar an ounce, or around $400 — to scientist Edwin E. Howell, who published a summary of his analysis in the July 21, 1893 edition of the journal Science. “It is a typical aerolite of very pronounced chrondritic structure,â€? Howell wrote. “It is completely coated with the usual black crust except at one end, where about three pounds have been broken off and scattered like the two smaller stones, mostly among mere curiosity hunters. The mass now weighs 22½ pounds, measures 6 by 7½ by 9½ inches and approaches in shape an acute octahedron.â€? Another scientist, B.J. Harrington, also examined

FIRE IN THE SKY Other Kootenay meteor sightings: • Rossland, 1897 The Rossland Evening Record of Aug. 10, 1897 described “A luminous ball of fire that glowed strangely and shed about itself a halo of variegated colors.â€? It hovered over the city and was witnessed by many citizens. After 15 minutes, it streaked off to the south and faded away. • Ymir, 1904 The Ymir Herald of Dec. 31, 1904 said: “A large meteorite was observed to fall on Tuesday night last, somewhere between town and the Hunter V mine.â€? • Castlegar, 1962 According to the Castlegar News of Jan. 18, 1962, a “red ball of fireâ€? was witnessed over Brilliant, moving slowly until it disappeared just short of the mountains towards Trail. • Salmo, 2002 Dozens of Salmo area residents saw a bright light followed by an explosion powerful enough to shake houses and crack ice, the Nelson Daily News of March 8, 2002 reported.

a piece of Hislop’s sample, and presented his findings in the Aug. 31, 1893 edition of Nature. He determined it consisted mostly of nickel-iron, but also cobalt, magnesia, silica and other substances. It was dull brown outside and light grey inside. (The meteorite is today classified an H5 — part of a group with high iron content and abundant olivine and bronzite. It’s one of the most common types.) The following year, Howell published a more extensive report in the American Journal of Science, including a sketch of the stone as he first saw it, a detailed chemical analysis by Dr. W.F. Hillebrand of the US Geological Survey and a microscopic examination by Dr. George P. Merrill of the US National Museum. “The [explosion] was heard by persons within a radius of nearly 25 miles and it was believed by many who heard it that larger pieces must have fallen than those secured,� Howell wrote. “After repeated efforts and much correspondence I have been unable to secure any more of the fall. The reports at first stated that two smaller pieces of a few pounds each were seen to fall. This how-

ever seems to have been a mistake.� McLeod’s piece had since been broken up and distributed, as had Hislop’s. (At least one fragment remained in local hands, for the Nelson Tribune of Sept. 28, 1893 reported a man named Tom Collins viewed it: “The rock looked very old; there was no indication as to its sex, but it looked very old. Perhaps its rackety career through circumambient space did something to age it.�) After that, the meteorite vanished from scientific literature. Various fragments made their way into private collections, and many pictures can be found online, which vary greatly in colour, shape, and texture. Those now for sale measure a few millimeters each, weigh less than a gram, and hardly betray their otherworldly origin.

LOCAL Public meeting set for next week FROM PAGE 1 In April the group’s grant application was denied by the Community Recreation Program. But Trail council decided to support the construction of a park on the city’s undeveloped land adjacent to the chain-up area on Rossland Avenue. The 8,000-square-foot recreational facility on Rossland Avenue will be open to skateboarders, roller skaters, inline skaters, scooter riders and BMX bike riders. McIsaac expects to share the news with members of the skate park committee at their regular meeting on June 20. The meeting is open to the public and will take place in City Hall at 4:30 p.m. “The city will then be able to advise the committee members what council’s commitment is and the city can continue to fundraise their 50 per cent of the share, their $250,000, towards the construction costs,” revealed McIsaac. “If you visualize a large, concrete surface and whatnot—we couldn’t get started without all of the money in place. We couldn’t get started and then say ‘oh well’ and leave it until we get the rest of the money in place.”

Prevention the best tool against milfoil FROM PAGE 1 Invasive plants like Eurasian water milfoil have the potential for considerable economic or environmental damage by disrupting natural ecosystems, reducing biodiversity, increasing soil erosion, altering soil chemistry and adversely affecting commercial crops. “With no known predators, prevention is the best action,” said Klym. Eurasian water milfoil is a species of freshwater aquatic plant native to Europe, Asia and north Africa. It is a submerged aquatic plant, and grows in still or slow-moving water. In lakes or other aquatic areas where native aquatic plants are not well established, the Eurasian plant can quickly spread. Although it is a priority on the aquatic invasive species list for 2012 for CKIPC, the plant is under containment but with some established infestations such as the Columbia River. The Invasive Plant Program identifies locations of invasive plant species and responds rapidly to contain and eradicate newly discovered invasive plant species before they become established and begin spreading in B.C. Some of the most intrusive plants in B.C. currently are orange and yellow (non-native) hawkweeds, garlic mustard, cordgrasses and knotweed. Other targeted species include knapweed, giant hogweed, common tansy and Scotch broom. To learn more: • Invasive Alien Plant Program: http:// • Invasive Species Council of British Columbia:

Trees to come down, garden to go up TRAIL – The bad news is: five large trees (a catalpa and four evergreens) must come down. The good news is: they will be replaced with white-blossoming trees and over 180 species of plants and shrubs, accenting a rose-covered arbour and bringing B.C.’s first white garden into full bloom. “We don’t like to remove trees, but these ones – the roots are lifting the sidewalk and will soon be damaging the river wall,” said Warren Proulx, an engineer technician for the City of Trail. The roots protruding from the lawn are hard on mowing equipment, becoming a tripping hazard as well. “This is the only sidewalk in Trail that can’t be cleaned or snow removed properly because it is too narrow to use the equipment here.” Hence, the sidewalk will be widened once the trees are gone. To prepare the park for planting, long strips of grass bordering the back wall and railing will also be removed. The sod will be carefully lifted and reused at Mountain View Cemetery to cover recent burials. “This will save the city a lot of money, considering how much it costs to purchase sod,” said Proulx. The wood from the trees will be bucked up and left for people to pick up. The city doesn’t want people disturbing residents of Jubilee Manor or driving trucks onto the site, so the wood will be taken over to the old Elk’s parking lot beside the Old Bridge on Riverside Avenue.


Some trees have to be replaced. In preparation for the new White Garden at Jubilee Park, Dan Rodlie and Phyllis Stone of Community in Bloom joined public works manager Larry Abenante and city engineer Warren Proulx to assess five large trees that are lifting the sidewalk and threatening the integrity of the river wall. “People can come and just take it. It will make good fire wood.” The smaller branches will be mulched. “The trees were going to have to be removed anyway,” Proulx added. Grass won’t grow under the trees, and the city is adamant about not having exposed soil in public parks due to the risk of heavy metal exposure. Teck is assisting the city with replacement of soil in some exposed areas. Once the ground is prepped, planting of the White Garden will begin. The vision of a White Garden was first

brought to Community in Bloom (CiB) by former Montrose councillor Phyllis Stone. The idea was to create a smaller version of the White Garden at Sissinghurst in Kent, England. It has taken almost ten years to plan. Stone researched hundreds of plants and flowers to determine which ones would grow best in this area. The committee was given a huge boost of $10,000 from Kootenay Savings Credit Union for the building of the rose arbour. Trail Rotary club kicked in $1,000 for flowers; and donations from local families are starting to

come in. Recognition plaques will be placed somewhere in the garden and those donating more than $50 can get a tax receipt from the City of Trail. Like the city’s other gardens, the White Garden is being designed by Trail’s garden guru, Bill Garnett. CiB volunteers help plant and weed the downtown show gardens and planters as well as residential area gardens such as the ones in Tadanac and Shaver’s Bench. The city relies on citizens to help keep the city clean by keeping boulevards neat and pulling weeds and unsightly grasses

out of sidewalk cracks and along curbs. In addition, the city contracts with MB Landscaping who do a great job of maintaining all the cities 54 parks and green spaces, covering 104 acres. This year, Trail is competing with cities across Canada, Europe and Japan in the international category of Communities in Bloom. For more information, check the city website at trail. ca or contact Trail Community in Bloom on Facebook or call 368-9227 if you would like to help with weeding, deadheading, or donating plants.

THE CANADIAN PRESS VICTORIA - B.C. drivers are once again facing what are considered the toughest drunk driving penalties in Canada after the provincial government was forced to adjust the law following a court ruling. The law was originally introduced in September of 2010, giving police the power to impound cars and hand out hefty fines to drivers whose bloodalcohol level was higher than .05, which is slightly below the .08 legal limit under the Criminal Code. The law was later withdrawn after a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled it violated drivers’ rights because it didn’t provide a way for them to challenge the result of a roadside

breath test. Under the revised law, police officers must tell drivers they can have a second test if they fail the first one, and the lower of the two readings will prevail. Police must also provide sworn reports on every roadside driving ban they issue and must also submit documents confirming the accuracy of the breathalyzers they use. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said the changes go beyond what the court ordered because the government wants to ensure the rules are both fair and effective. “This legislation has always been about public safety, and its lifesaving value is clear,� she said in a statement.

Corruption report ignored, says whistleblower THE CANADIAN PRESS


The House of Commons calendar still reads Wednesday, June 13, as Prime Minister Stephen Harper, middle, Minister of Industry Christian Paradis, left, and Government House Leader Peter Van Loan are recognized as they vote on amendments to the budget Bill C-38 in the House of Commons on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Thursday.

Omnibus marathon continues OTTAWA - The two sleep-deprived sides of the House of Commons kept vigilant watch on each other Thursday as bleary-eyed MPs stood up and sat down, over and over again, their 24-hour marathon voting session pushing past the halfway mark. And after 12 hours of voting, what they had on their feet - if anything - when they got on them didn’t seem to matter much to anyone. “I’ve got to get myself comfy, off come the shoes,� said New Democrat MP Glenn Thibeault, describing one of the many ways MPs sought comfort 5)&,005&/":n4 05& &/":n4 0/-:

heading through the 12th hour of voting on more than 800 amendments to Bill C-38. Members of Parliament methodically bobbed from their seats through the night and into the afternoon as they voted on 871 opposition motions grouped into 159 voteable packages - that are designed to thwart, or at least publicize, the Harper government’s sprawling omnibus budget implementation bill. Liberal House leader Marc Garneau’s best guess for when the voting would finally be over? Likely 1 a.m. Friday morning, he said - 24 hours after it began.

The long haul seemed to have taken a toll on Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. The normally jocular Flaherty was waspish in his comments about the opposition’s efforts to delay passage of his budget bill. “This is not a time for gamesmanship,� Flaherty said. “This is a serious time in which we need to protect Canada and advance our economic agenda.�

MONTREAL - Quebec’s corruption inquiry has heard its first incendiary testimony, with a prominent civil servant revealing himself as the man who leaked a document to the media about construction collusion because the government didn’t care about it. Jacques Duchesneau, a former federal official and Montreal police chief who most recently worked for the provincial government, said his political bosses clearly didn’t care what he had to say. He testified that when he tried last year to brief his supervisor, the transport minister, about the findings of his investigation into the construction industry, the minister was coldly indifferent. Duchesneau had been hired by the Quebec government to look specifically at allegations of collusion in the province’s transport ministry. He says then-transport minister Sam Hamad was staring out the window while he talked. He then says the minister refused to look at his report and that his assistants would deal with it. “If I start talking to you and you look outside to see if it’s nice outside, it affects concentration,� Duchesneau told the corruption inquiry, for which he is the first star witness. In his second day of testimony, Duchesneau said he hadn’t heard from the minister for a year. He says he joked to Hamad: “If you lost my phone

Plastic bags a small part of the garbage picture


he good burghers of Toronto, or at least the majority of city councilors, take a dim view of plastic shopping and voted last week to outlaw them in Canada’s largest city. While civic leaders worthy of the votes of all those Torontonians, as well as $100,000 annual salaries, may know a thing or two, they could expand their horizons by spending time picking up the trash they are so concerned about. Trail Rotarians have been doing just that since the fall. They have discovered that plastic bags are far from a major litter problem, at least in this city. Along the highway this spring, trying to pick up the few plastics bags that had accumulated since October was like trying to gather dandelions gone to seed. The bags now in use crumble when you try to pick them up, leaving only a few wispy remnants behind. These plastics bags hardly seem to be a litter problem that is going to bury us all. However,

there are concerns about the chemicals emitted during the production of the bags and on the environment as they break down. The analyses of the “total footprint” of plastics, paper, and reusable bags are heavily dependent on how many times the various models are reused before being tossed. Missing from all of the calculations is how much extra energy is consumed running back to your house or car to get the re-usable bags you have forgotten once again. I suspect a per-bag charge, as Toronto has now and some national chains have implemented, is the way to go as this both cuts down on their use and doesn’t leave shoppers looking like comic jugglers when they forget their re-usables. As for litter, the most common items found along our highways are fast food containers. It is astounding to contemplate the doltishness of people who, after their last schlurp of coffee or chomp on their burger (how do you eat a hamburger while driving?) insist on hurl-

ing from their vehicles. Fortunately, their numbers are quite small relative to the volume of traffic traveling the highways. Another ubiquitous bit of trash are cigarette butts. Given our usual hot arid summers, it is surprising we don’t see more roadside brush fires like the one near Waneta Gardens last summer. The most inexplicable item I came across during the Rotarians recent outing was a number of surgical-type gloves strewn along Highway 22 north of Tadanac. Is there a mobile proctology clinic serving hitchhikers and vagrants that I haven’t heard about? The nicest moment

was when a young man walked by, looking like he was on his way home to Rivervale or Oasis after a long night out in the big city. Although he was obviously the worse for wear and yearning for a place to lay his throbbing head, he took the time to smile and congratulate us on our efforts. ••• It is great to hear that the Chamber of Commerce is starting up a weekly outdoor market today on the Esplanade, which will run every Friday from 10 a..m. to 2 p.m. It likely won’t be bursting with locallygrown foodstuffs since there isn’t much commercial food production in this area, but it is the kind of activity that is needed to build up traffic and add life to downtown. Hopefully, the venture can attract enough homebased businesses and traveling vendors to make it an outing that locals will look forward to each week. What’s not to like about pawing the merchandise, kibitzing with vendors and chatting with other shoppers under a blazing blue West Kootenay sum-

mer sky (remember those) as the Columbia River flows by. Just remember to bring your re-usable shopping bags and to throw your coffee cups in the trash bins. ••• The little village that is without a name as far as Canada Post is concerned and is so small that even cyclists barely notice it as they fly down the hill from Rossland toward Trail celebrates its continued improbable existence this Saturday with Warfield Day. It’s been 60 years since the community that probably shouldn’t be but proudly still is a separate municipality was incorporated, and longer yet since the settlement really got going with the building of the first Mickey Mouse houses in the late 1930s. In a world where bigger is usually deemed to be better, Warfield is happily, cozily small and proud of it and doesn’t appear to be ready to disappear any time soon.

Owners must be responsible for pets Big or small, any dog can be a vicious dog. Twice in the past year I have been bit by dogs, one small Jack Russell on June 13th this past week and large Boxer last spring, both in the Fruitvale area. Neither dog was on a leash and darted at me from a yard. The Jack Russell was down the block from where he lived roaming the neighbourhood as he has done on many occasions

and is a nuisance. Both have been reported to the SPCA with follow-ups to the owners. Dog owners, don’t ever say that your dog would never bite anyone because no dog can be trusted. I am a dog owner myself of many years and have had to have one of my dogs put down because he bit my own children. There was no hesitation with our decision. Buck up you dog owners

that let their dogs roam free. Be responsible and abide by the Bylaws of our communities. License your dogs and keep them on a leash when off your property and for some of you, on your property. You’d be the first to complain if your dog got hit by a vehicle while roaming about. It’s not the dogs fault. Be responsible! Belle Norman Fruitvale

is always there between them is possible. He proved that to me. Over the years he somehow managed to work as hard as he does, yet show how much he loves our children. If they needed his strong hands while he was at home, he was there. When they wanted to sit on his lap, he’d scoop them up, even if it was just for a brief moment. He eventually learned to relax with them, took them on camping trips, roasted hotdogs over an open fire and he taught them things like how to groom a horse. As busy as he was he found time and, through trial and error, he always tried to keep an open mind. Our marriage dwindled but the love for his children has remained steadfast and strong. Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Ol’ Days) – The Judds 1985 My father was raised on the Saskatchewan prairie. His first mode of transportation was a blue roan horse that, relatives say, he could “ride like the wind.” Occasionally he would tell us stories about his youth. My favourite: the night he and friends strapped the reverend’s buckboard buggy to the church rooftop for Sunday parishioners to see. Born in 1913, he lived through the depression era, two world wars and he saw the technological advancement of new inventions like the light bulb and the automobile. Every five years we would go on a road-trip, back to the homestead in Saskatchewan to celebrate a family reunion that would bring people home from all over the continent – an occasion created by family and friends to celebrate life after the advent of the Second World War. My best childhood memories are in those back-home days where I learned about my heritage and sang, my dad’s favourite song – Porter Wagoner’s 1965 hit, The Green, Green Grass of Home - to loved ones. My father passed away in 1996. He was “Papa” to 13 grandchildren. His legacy lives on through both the Legion and his family. Happy Father’s Day.

Gangster inspired movie ‘Goodfellas’ THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Henry Hill, who went from smalltime gangster to big-time celebrity when his life as a mobster-turned-FBI informant became the basis for the Martin Scorsese film “Goodfellas,” died Tuesday. He was 69 Longtime girlfriend Lisa Caserta told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Hill died of complications from longtime heart problems related to smoking. An associate in New York’s Lucchese crime family, Hill told detailed, disturbing and often hilarious tales of life in the mob that first appeared in the 1986 book “Wiseguy: Life in a Mafia Family,” by Nicholas Pileggi, a journalist Hill sought out shortly after becoming an informant. “Henry Hill was a hood. He was a hustler. He had schemed and plotted and broken heads,” Pileggi wrote in the book. “He knew how to bribe and he knew how to con. He was a fulltime working racketeer, an articulate hoodlum from organized crime.” In 1990 the book, adapted for the screen by Pileggi and Scorsese, became the instant classic “Goodfellas,” starring Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta as Hill, a young hoodlum on the make who thrives in the Mafia but is eventually forced by drugs to turn on his criminal friends and lead the life of a sad suburbanite. The film became a constantly quoted pop cultural phenomenon that provided the template for the modern gangster story. Unlike older Mafia tales, which focused on family and honour, “Wiseguy” and “Goodfellas” mostly dwelled on how utterly awesome it was to be in the mob - on the gangster as rock star - at least until the life caught up with you. “As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster,” Liotta, as Hill, says in the movie. “For us to live any other way was nuts.” Born in Brooklyn to an Irish father and an Italian mother, Hill’s life with the mob began at age 11 when he wandered into a cabstand across the street in 1955 looking for work. He

He was first arrested at age 16 for using a stolen credit card in an attempt to buy tires for the brother of gang leader Paul Vario, and impressed the gang leaders for refusing to squeal on them. Far bigger crimes awaited, including the 1967 theft of $420,000 in cash from the Air France cargo terminal at JFK airport in New York, among the biggest cash heists in history at the time. And in 1978, Hill had a key role in the theft of $5.8 million in cash from

a Lufthansa Airlines vault, a heist masterminded by Jimmy Burke, the inspiration for De Niro’s character in “Goodfellas.” “Whenever we needed money, we’d rob the airport,” Liotta says in the movie. “To us, it was better than Citibank.” But the crew involved in the heist would soon turn on each other, and several would end up dead, leaving Hill extremely paranoid he could be next, he later told Pileggi. He was also selling drugs behind the back of his boss Vario, and in 1980 was arrested on a narcotics-trafficking charge. More afraid of his associates than prison, Hill decided he had no choice but to become an informant, and signed an agreement with a Department of Justice task force that would prove more fruitful than anyone imagined. “The arrest of Henry Hill was a price beyond measure,” Pileggi wrote.“ ”Hill

had grown up in the mob. He was only a mechanic, but he knew everything. He knew how it worked. He knew who oiled the machinery. He knew, literally, where the bodies were buried. If he talked, police knew that Henry Hill could give them the key to dozens of indictments and convictions.“ Hill’s testimony did send dozens of men to prison, many for the Lufthansa heist, and he and his wife Karen, played by Lorraine Bracco in the movie, went into hiding together, spending years fearing retribution by a gun to the back of his head from his old colleagues. In the early 1990s, after more drug arrests, Hill was booted from the witness protection program. His fears for his life waned as many former associates died off, and he led a more public life in later years, appearing in documentaries and becoming a popular call-in guest on Howard Stern’s radio show. His death was first reported by the celebrity website TMZ. His struggles with substances would continue for most of his life. In 2008 he pleaded guilty in San Bernardino, Calif., to two counts of public intoxication. In 2009, he was arrested in St. Louis on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. “I’ve been on every drug humanly possible, and I can’t get a handle on alcohol,” he told The Associated Press in 2009. “I’ll go two, two and a half years, and I don’t know what triggers me.” In the book and the film he talks about hard it was to lead an ordinary life after years steeped in gangster glamour. “I had paper bags filled with jewelry stashed in the kitchen. I had a sugar bowl full of coke next to the bed. Anything I wanted was a phone call away,” Hill says in the film. “Today, everything is different. There’s no action. I have to wait around like everyone else. Can’t even get decent food. Right after I got here I ordered some spaghetti with marinara sauce, and I got egg noodles and ketchup. I’m an average nobody.”

Balancing the many aspects of the ethical endings debate


he public debate on endof-life ethics is (in the main) focussed on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being described as a personal choice issue. When and how one becomes involved in making decisions that can have an immediate effect on ones ability to continue living, breathing and functioning in human community. While the courts and the various interested parties weigh in on that very important and necessary conversation, it is far from the only ethical consideration we will face as we transition out of life ourselves; are present to the transition of family members; or act as care-givers during the time of transition we know as dying, or end-of-life. We will, and do, come into points of convergence at the end-oflife, points that concern conflicting values; differing cultural mores; legal principles; institutional policies; the goals of treatment and the various needs of the people and organizations involved. As those convergences come into being, we can benefit greatly from a good grounding

Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day For some of you, your parents are gone (including my own) but the memories of them are many. Some of us are parents ourselves and even grandparents and great grandparents. We are blessed with the children in our lives whether they are young, teens or adults. I sometimes hear people say they do not have good memories of their parents, especially of their fathers and that saddens me very much. No matter the memories we have of our parents whether good or bad, we all have a Heavenly father who is the ultimate perfect parent and who loves us unconditionally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!â&#x20AC;? (1 John 3:1) God knows everything about us from the words on our tongues before they are spoken (Psalm 139:4) to knowing the numbers of hairs on our heads (Matthew 10:30) and much more. God is there for us day and night and we can go to him in prayer at any time. Prayer is like talking to our best friend. If you ever doubt Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for you, remember he loves you so much that he sent his son Jesus to die on the cross for your sins. That is one amazing gift of love!!

Hospice member visits meeting The June meeting of Our Lady of Perpetual Help council of the Catholic Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s League began with Mass followed by a presentation about the Greater Trail Hospice Society given by Mr. Tom McEwan. Mr. McEwan, who is a member of the Hospice Board and also a hospice volunteer, explained that it is a community based program dedicated to providing support and compassionate care. They all work together to plan and co-ordinate care for the dying person. Although it has recently become a society, the program was started in 1987 and is financially supported by grants and donations. Their mission statement is: Hospiceâ&#x20AC;Ś We support quality of living while in the process of dying and healthy transition through grief for the bereaved. Members who had reached significant mile stones were honoured. Doris Mailey was presented with a 50-year pin in appreciation of her CWL service. Other members with 50 or more years of service included Alba Vellutini, Marlise Gattafoni, Flora Marchiori, Mary Pettigrew, Agnes Kohlman, Mary VanDeKeere and Bernice Wilson; in addition to Laura Anselmo who has reached an amazing 74 years as a CWL member. Dessert and coffee / tea were served and everyone was wished a happy summer. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, September 4 at OLPH. New members are welcome.

Vatican offers traditionalists proposal for reconciliation THE ASSOCIATED PRESS VATICAN CITY - The Vatican has formally proposed a way to reconcile with a breakaway group of ultra-traditionalist Catholics in a final bid to end a quarter-century of schism, offering it a special legal status in the church currently enjoyed only by the conservative Opus Dei movement. The Vatican said Thursday it had proposed making the Society of St. Pius X a â&#x20AC;&#x153;personal prelatureâ&#x20AC;? - akin to a diocese without borders - during a meeting Wednesday with the societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superior. The superior, Bishop Bernard Fellay, promised to respond within a â&#x20AC;&#x153;reasonableâ&#x20AC;? amount of time to the proposal and the Vaticanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outstanding demands that the group accept a set of core doctrinal points to come into full communion with Rome, the Vatican said in a statement. The society, founded in 1969 by the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, split from Rome over its opposition to the liberalizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council, which among other things introduced Mass in the vernacular and revolutionized the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relations with Jews. In 1988, the Vatican excommunicated Lefebvre and four of his bishops after he consecrated them without papal consent.

Newly published crime fiction author Deryn Collier has always thought of herself as a crime fiction writer, even when she was working at other jobs and not writing. Collier’s debut novel, Confined Space, is now available in bookstores. It was written in Creston, before she moved to Nelson with her husband, Ron Sherman, a school principal, and her two sons. “Crime fiction has always been my preference. I remember clearly when I finished Grade 2 my Mom gave me a Nancy Drew book for finishing the year — and that’s what I do for my own kids; I give them a book — and I remember reading that book the day she gave it to me, and reading the whole thing cover to cover and feeling like something just happened. I’ve loved mysteries ever since.” Collier pauses to think about why she is drawn to a genre that doesn’t

get much respect. “I think it’s the resolution — the tension and then resolving the tension. In the stories there is always something impossible, it’s like this impossible puzzle. As I writer I have to solve the puzzle, but as I reader I’m not so interested in doing that. I’m more interested in, ‘How is this author going to solve the puzzle for me?’” Collier wrote three drafts of Confined Space, then was fortunate to find a literary agent she respected. Two more drafts under the direction of her agent were completed and, five years after she started, Collier got the word that Simon and Schuster Canada was interested. “That’s when I did my happy dance.” A whirlwind of travel and promotion this month will bring her to Café Books in Rossland at 7 p.m. June 23.

Strong effort puts Jays back in win column

Croatia holds Italy to 1-1 draw

Trail hosts Cranbrook for doubleheader on Sunday afternoon


BY GUY BERTRAND Times Sports Editor

A memorable rally, an unforgettable catch and a Roy Hobbs moments might all add up to a big turning point in the season for the Trail Jays. The Jays opened up their North Idaho American Legion Baseball schedule on Wednesday with a split against the Prairie Cardinals at Butler Park. The Cardinals, who came to Trail on the heels of sweeping the Lewiston Twins on Sunday, overcame some solid pitching by Dallas Calvin to score a 5-1 win in the opening game at Butler Park. Even though Calvin struck out the first four Prairie batters he faced, the Cardinals eventually got to the starter and the Jays couldn’t respond. “We didn’t do enough to put pressure on them,” admitted manager Nick Combo. However, that all changed in the second half of Wednesday’s doubleheader. The Jays rallied from a 5-3 deficit with five runs in the bottom of the sixth then ended the game when Scott Davidson’s diving catch in centrefield began a gameending double play to seal the 8-5 win. The victory ended the Jays’ nine-game losing streak, put them at 1-1 in NIAL play and provided a huge boost of confidence for the young lineup. “It was a big win and got the monkey off our backs,” said Combo. “A lot of guys stepped up and delivered.” All the ingredients were there for the win - solid pitching from starter Tyrus Jocko, minimal errors from the defence, clutch hitting and patience at the plate. “And it was important to get that momentum on our side,” added the Jays’ bench boss. “We have two games against Cranbrook on Sunday.” That’s a team the Jays expect to beat. However, the Jays knew they had their


The wheels started to fall off the Prairie Cardinals lead when this pick off attempt got past Prarie first baseman Darnell Metcalf allowing Trail’s Tyrus Jocko to head to second. hands full against a tough Prairie lineup. The first game started off well for Jays as Calvin struck out the side, three of six strikeouts he had in the game. However, Prairie responded in the top of the second thanks to a series of passed balls and wild pitches, which led to two runs. Jocko got one back for Trail in the bottom of the second with a lead off double, Trail’s only hit in the game. He would eventually cross the plate on Tanner Rotschy’s fielder’s choice to cut the deficit to 2-1. It stayed that way until the fifth when Prairie put together three singles and cashed in on a Trail error to score three times and lock up the 5-1 win. The second game was unfolding in similar fashion as Prairie built up a 3-0 lead on Jays’ starter Davidson while their pitcher, Dylan Charboneau was working on a no-hitter after three complete inning. The Jays finally took flight in the fourth. Geoff Soukeroff ended the no-hit bid but was thrown out at second. Then Calvin singled, Jocko doubled and Jarret Conway walked and eventually all three would

score as Charboneau began to lose his control. A hit a batter, a walk and a wild pitch to successive batters all led to the RBIs. Tied 3-3, Prairie responded in the top of the fifth with base runners and two solid hits that produced a pair of RBIs to put the visitors up 5-3. That set the stage for the late-game heroics. With runners in scoring position, Lukas Thatcher stepped up a delivered a huge single, which brought home Ryan Giesler and Jake Lucchini to tie the game. Charboneau exited the game but his relief didn’t fare any better and loaded the bases for Calvin to slam the first pitch he saw for an RBI single and give Trail a 6-5 lead. It went from bad to worse for the Cards as a passed ball on a third strike and a wild pitch brought home two more Trail base runners to give the Jays an 8-5 lead. Before the Jays’ extended at bat ended, Conway delivered a quasi-Roy Hobbs moment when his foul ball went straight up and shattered a light and rained down broken glass on to the Cardinals dugout.

It wasn’t quite the ending from the movie “The Natural,” but it did foreshadow a highlight reel finish. Soukeroff came on in the top of the seventh to nail down the win. But after a lead off walk, the Cards felt that fate might be back on their side. Soukeroff got one out on a fielder’s choice and then Davidson turned a potential momentum shifting moment into a diving catch on a sinking line drive and doubled off the runner to end the game in spectacular fashion. Jocko picked up the win while Calvin went 3-4 at the plate and Conway scored two runs. Combo didn’t hesitate when asked if the two games were Trail’s best effort of the season so far. “I think we competed well in both games.” He added that with such a young team it’s important to savour and remember these moments and build on the experience. The Jays won’t have to wait long to put their newfound confidence to the test. They’ll host the Cranbrook Bandits Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. at Butler Park.

POZNAN, Poland - After all the talk about an attacking approach to football, Italy fell back to its old defensive tactics Thursday - and the price was a costly 1-1 draw with Croatia. The Italians let a first-half lead slip away and now may need help to advance to the European Championship quarterfinals. Andrea Pirlo gave the Italians the lead with a curving free kick in the 39th minute, but Mario Mandzukic was left unmarked to equalize for Croatia in the 72nd. At the start of the second half, Italy rarely threatened, instead choosing to absorb Croatia’s attacks. The tactic backfired when Ivan Strinic launched a long pass from the left flank to Mandzukic, who had time to control at the edge of the box and shoot in off the post. Italy coach Cesare Prandelli was left wondering if there was a physical problem with his squad. “After an hour our physical level drops,” Prandelli said. “We’ve got to figure out how to manage our energy in the next match. We’re lacking freshness in that phase of the match.” In the final round of group matches on Monday, Italy faces Ireland and Croatia meets world champion Spain. Italy is in a similar position to Euro 2004, when it won its final group match after two draws but was eliminated after Denmark and Sweden drew 2-2. That was the first time a team was eliminated from the group phase without losing.



New York Mets’ Jason Bay reacts as he watches his second-inning home run, his sixth of the year, off Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Jeremy Hellickson during an interleague baseball game Thursday, in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Mets won the game 9-6 to sweep the three-game series.

A graduation party to remember

After spending 12 or more years attending school, graduation can be a momentous event for students who are about to enter the â&#x20AC;&#x153;real world.â&#x20AC;? A graduation party gives students a chance to celebrate the friendships theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made, the memories of the last several years and the opportunities to come. The choices for graduation parties are virtually endless. One signiďŹ cant consideration is the date of the party. If you want your party to take place on your actual graduation date, then expect to be competing with other students -- some of whom may be your close friends. Unless you want few guests or you prefer to spend the entire day hopping from one party to another, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to come up with a date that will be yours and yours alone. Therefore, select a date that is one or two weeks after the big day so more friends will be able to attend.

When it comes to planning the party itself, there are many ways to set your event apart from others. Here are some ideas you can consider.

As guests arrive, have them walk the red carpet while others snap photos of them for later use in scrapbooks. °Ă?Ă&#x203A;I][j]Yl]Ă&#x203A;YĂ&#x203A;egna]¤afkhaj]\Ă&#x203A;_jY\mYlagfĂ&#x203A; scene. Think about those classic teen movies that you love, and borrow ideas for your party theme from them. For example, if the carnival graduation party scene from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greaseâ&#x20AC;? is your all-time favorite, plan a carnival-themed graduation party. There are many vendors who will rent inďŹ&#x201A;atable moon bounces,

amusement park rides and the like. Serve fair food, like corn dogs and funnel cakes.

Check with neighborhood dance clubs if they are open to off-hours private parties. Sometimes nontraditional party venues rent their spaces if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re guaranteed a certain amount of revenue. Find out whether they have a DJ on staff or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to ďŹ nd someone to take care of the music and emcee the event.

Keep a watchful eye on sister’s new beau Dear Annie: A year ago, my sister, “Sheila,” had an affair. She is now living with the Other Man. Sheila and her husband have a 23-yearold son who has been devastated by this. My family believes the boyfriend is simply using Sheila for her money and to have someone around to help raise his teenage daughter. In addition, he seems very controlling. Needless to say, we all object to what my sister has done, but she is stubbornly standing by her decision. I will soon be traveling cross-country to visit. I have requested that Sheila not bring the boyfriend to any family get-togethers. Although I wouldn’t be so insensitive as to invite her soon-to-be ex, I’m not comfortable welcoming the boyfriend with open arms. My nephew will be at these gatherings, and his wounds are still fresh. I am trying to be considerate of his feelings.



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

Sheila says I shouldn’t force her to choose, and that her boyfriend is her family now. I say that my nephew has been my family for 23 years. At what point do we have to include the boyfriend? Should I back down and let her bring the guy? -- Caught in the Middle Dear Caught: While we understand your reluctance to accept this man, we urge you to reconsider. Registering your disapproval is justified, but at some point, it can become counterproductive. Sheila is not going to come without him, so your choice is to see both of them or neither. Not seeing Sheila is one option. However,

if Sheila marries this man, it will help your nephew enormously if he can learn to tolerate the guy’s presence. And it will be easier to do if he has the rest of his supportive family nearby, showing him how to be civil without necessarily being friendly. It will also help Sheila. If this man is as controlling as you fear, someone needs to keep an eye on the situation. Dear Annie: My younger sister, “Linda,” age 50, is getting married for the fifth time. She is planning a wedding in the town where I grew up, about 400 miles away. My wife refuses to attend the wedding because she says it’s tacky and narcissistic to have such an affair for the fifth time, plus it’s a long drive. I agree that Linda is rather selfabsorbed, and I can only imagine what the guests may be thinking when my sister vows to love and to hold until death do you part. Again.

I agree with my wife on principle, but Linda is my only sister. I could attend without my wife, but I don’t want to tell my sister why I’m by myself. How should I handle this? -Big Brother Dear Big Brother: We think you should go, even if it means going without your wife, although it would be nice if she would attend for your sake. If Linda should ask about your wife’s absence, simply say she has other commitments. You don’t owe anyone more of an explanation than that. Dear Annie: “Puzzled in Indiana” said his brother refuses to speak to their father because Dad sold the family house when Mom died and built a new one with his new wife, instead of sharing the proceeds of the sale with the kids. My husband and I have been married for 40 years. We both worked and raised our kids. Whatever remains

in our estate I expect to be for our children. I didn’t work extra shifts for the benefit of some future wife. I would not begrudge my husband the companionship of someone else in the event of my death. He can share his Social

Security and pension, but not everything I worked for. -- Retiree in Florida Dear Florida: We understand your position, but “Puzzled” said Mom left the house to Dad, not to the kids. In which case, he was

free to do with it as he wished. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to

YOU BORN TODAY You are intelligent and patient. You wait for the right moment. You choose to invest in tomorrow’s profit rather than today’s gain. Similarly, you choose your friends with









care. You are aware of longterm benefits, and because you have self-discipline, you patiently live this way. This year, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish in order to make room for something new.
