Big downpour produces big bill City soaked for $500,000 tab in aftermath of June 23 rainfall BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

A one-day rainfall free-for-all has rung up a $500,000 tab in the city and the piper is now demanding to be paid. The deluge that socked the city with 38 millimetres (two inches) on June 23—and a total of 89.7 mm. (four inches) June 22-27—took a toll on the city’s infrastructure and property, and now a bill has been sent to the province to help soak up the incurred costs and damages. City manager of public works, Larry Abenante, said the clean up and remediation of several sites throughout the city is ongoing while they await word on how much of the bill the Provincial Emergency Program will pay. “We had to give them a ballpark figure,� he said Tuesday. “They just needed to know we need assistance with all of this.� He also said there were rough estimates for total damage to private residences in the rain event of up to $750,000—a matter the city does not get involved in. When the rain pelted down June

23, creek banks eroded, slopes came crashing down and floodwater washed debris off of bluffs throughout Trail, forcing street closures and prompting the city to investigate the higher reaches surrounding Trail for more potential disasters. As a result, a geo-technician’s report on the ‘S’ Hill Road and other areas of the city landed on Abenante’s desk Tuesday showed the city still has much work to do to dig out from the event, and repair the damage done. Concentrated storm water runoff created considerable damage to the ‘S’ Hill near AM Ford, the report read, coupled with related flooding to at least two homes down at the bottom of the hill. “It appears surface water runoff in three sources including Highway 3B caused considerable sand erosion from the Highway Drive ditch and below, from about one to 1.5 metres deep,� the report noted. The report recommended a paved or concrete ditch along the ‘S’ Hill, which could prevent future erosion. Fallen rock and debris still have to be cleared from Sunningdale and Gorge creeks, as well as removal of a watershed debris slide at lower Gorge Creek and its lookouts. There is some slumping of the

June sets weather records BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

Heavy rainfall in June washed away all previous precipitation records. Last month’s 227 millimetres deluge was the most precipitation of any month since meteorologists began tracking local records in 1966. The previous top mark was 195.1mm of precipitation in December 1996. The wettest June prior to this year’s came in 2005 when 117.7mm of rain fell. Once the rain finally settled, records showed that June 2012

produced 350 per cent more than the normal precipitation at this time of year. “The more notably heavy rainfalls occurred the night of the fourth, sixth and during the week of the 23rd and 24th,� said Ron Lakeman of the Southeast Fire Centre Weather Services in a press release. The surge of showers and storms dumped roughly 38 mm. of rain on the area during a five-hour period on June 23 and brought a total of 89.7mm from June 22 to 27. Not only did rain soak the

City learns from misstep in grant application BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Once bitten, twice shy. With the city’s application for hundreds of thousands of federal and provincial grant money through the Community Recreation Program (CRP) doused

in April, city council was privy to the error of its ways in a recent conference call with the province. Although Mayor Dieter Bogs was adamant the city would not be fooled again by an assumption of widespread usage and pub-

lic support for a major facility, he did admit the city used the theory in its application without proper explanation. Even though there was a commitment by council to construct the facility, Bogs told city council during a regular meeting June

As an aspiring musician it was inevitable that Gary Morissette would fly the coop. The Fruitvale native left the area to compete on Canadian Idol in 2008 when he was only 21-years-old and he’s still marching to the beat of his own drum. “I was working construction in Kelowna and did the Canadian Idol because I sort of wanted to get out of town and that brought me to Toronto,� he explained. “I really liked it there.� But moving to Toronto required a commitment from the band too. “My band at the time was the Unknown Culprits in Kelowna and I had to convince them to come to Toronto with me,� he said. “I just went out on a limb and decided to go over there. Then we broke up in November and I started this band with my best friend Shane (Deyotte).� Morissette’s new group The Sunday Glow is Toronto-based and began a cross-



country tour after less than a month together. The band performed in Fruitvale on Sunday in front of a crowd of family, friends and fans. In addition, The Sunday Glow recorded a new EP with raspy lyrics and diverse sounds, it’s available for purchase on iTunes. Morissette credits his experience in Canadian Idol as “a turning point� for his life and career. “I was in Kelowna and sort of stuck in a construction job that I didn’t like and I was partying lots,� he said. “Canadian Idol was sort of my escape from all of that and getting my head back on my shoulders. I started playing music more seriously.� But Montrose native and drummer Shane Deyotte has been heavily involved in helping Morissette make the transition to a new band. “We’ve been best friends since we were kids,� Deyotte said. “I think with this band, we’re trying to do something a bit differ-

ent and we’re doing our own style of music.� Deyotte said the band’s style has been compared to Weezer, Nirvana, Bad Religion and NOFX and was pleased about how many people associate their music to so many different genres. “It’s tough to categorize ourselves because we like to use a lot of punk, but overall it’s all rock,� Deyotte said. “We think we’ve found a happy medium with punk and alt rock and done our own thing.� But walking down a career path as musicians hasn’t always been easy and the summer tour is proof of that. The group has had a stream of bad luck with bouts ranging from breakdowns to getting caught in a flood in Thunder Bay, getting lost on dirt road detours in Ontario and Manitoba and finally herding cattle until midnight in small-town Saskatchewan. “It’s been pretty crazy actually,� he explained while reminiscing about the experiences the group

Marie and so we had to get the van fixed there so that was $500 right off the hop.� Fortunately the band is so “amped� on performing, he disregarded the hurdles of travel as simply “funny

LOCAL DriveBC keeps an eye on Trail roads Webcam in operation near Devito Drive BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

For those about to commute, there’s DriveBC. The province’s website and tollfree phone service which provides traffic, road, and weather conditions for B.C. now has an eye on Highway 3B in Trail. Last Friday a web camera went live in the Silver City near Devito Drive, looking east along the very busy commuter route. Now highway users traveling back and forth every day between Trail, Montrose and Fruitvale will be able to check the weather and road conditions before they leave. Priority for new web cameras is given to routes prone to extreme weather or traffic congestion, like the drive along Highway 3B. “Highways in the Columbia and Kootenay regions of our province traverse some pretty challenging terrain, where weather can be unpredictable,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Blair Lekstrom, in a provincial press release.

Two other West Kootenay DriveBC web cameras are also now live in Nelson—just inside the city limits, looking south on Highway 6 near Highway 3A and the Rosemont interchange—and in Creston near the junction of Highway 3A and Highway 3. The Nelson webcam was installed to provide a resource in the winter season for the many travelers on their way to the ski areas of Whitewater along Highway 6. The Creston webcam provides a south-easterly view of a key decision making location for travelers: Highway users may now choose to travel along Highway 3 over the Kootenay Pass, or to travel along Highway 3A on the lakeside route. The three webcams are part of 30 new webcams installed this year on the DriveBC network, giving people a real-time view of weather and road conditions on provincial highways. DriveBC has just over 250 total webcams across the province and receives an average of 2.9 million visits per month. You can see DriveBC’s webcam images at:

The “S” Hill Road in East Trail is far from being repaired as the city received its geo-technician’s report on Tuesday.

Rain still causing havoc FROM PAGE 1 bluff above and onto Warren Street, while rock has fallen at the intersection of Buckna Street and Austad Lane. In East Trail, where McQuarrie Creek intersects Goepel Road between Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital and J.L Crowe High School, a creek channel is still in need of repair.

A big rock came off of the bluff and lodged itself into Buckna Street and now needs to be removed, while a Warren Lane wall has to be repaired due to slope movement. City workers will also be up Violin Lake road to the West Trail water tanks after the road was partially washed out, requiring repair.


State of emergency declared for Area G THE NELSON STAR Tuesday’s heavy localized rainfall has created problems for numerous areas within the Regional District of Central Kootenay. A state of local emergency has been declared for Area G, in addition to states of local emergency currently in place for Areas B, C, H and I. The declaration was issued today at noon in response to land instability issues, particularly regarding an RDCK-owned tailings pond. The facility’s retaining walls have

been saturated by record rainfalls and some sloughing has occurred. Current conditions make placing equipment to do remediation work difficult. A geo-technician is on site assessing the situation and local residents have been notified. The tailings pond was previously part of the HB mine site before being purchased by the RDCK as part of their central landfill property. Across the region, rivers and creeks are being monitored as the rainfall has increased levels.

Litre Duos are Back!

On Sunday during Canada Day another rain event created some minor problems for city crews, including a water main break in Muriel Heights, storm sewer seepage in West Trail and a Columbia Avenue sewer blockage. “So this is still the backlash from the (June) rain storms but it is all little stuff,” said Abenante.

Month also marked by cool temperatures FROM PAGE 1 records but it also dampened temperatures. The average daily high was 3.2 C cooler than normal, the coldest since June 1991. And the warmest day of the month came in the final days when the thermometer reached 28 C on June 28. Lakeman said the constant rainy forecast has subsided and summer should unfold as planned in July. “These things happen, but it does look better towards the end of the week,” he said. “There’s a slight chance of a shower on Thursday afternoon, but otherwise it looks quite nice. “All in all, the (weather) pattern looks far more typical for what we would expect to see for July,” he said. “It’s a bit too far ahead to predict, but July and August are calling for a fairly warm and dry summer. I think you’ll notice a significant change in the weather pattern starting (today).”

ducing dramatically fewer adults, especially in the last two decades, a new study suggests. In one example, the Fraser River’s early Stuart sockeye run dropped to about three adults for every spawning sockeye by the mid2000s, compared to 20 adults per spawner in the 1960s, said Randall Peterman, co-author of the study. Around Washington state, British Columbia, and eastern Alaska, the story’s been much the same, with some populations dropping below the replacement ratio of one adult per spawning salmon, said Peterman, who is also a fisheries professor at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C. The study, which was published Tuesday in the Canadian

Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences, found there have been “rapid and consistent decreases” in sockeye salmon productivity in stocks between Puget Sound in Washington state to Alaska’s Yakutat Peninsula. Since sockeye salmon are adaptable, their declining productivity may suggest that something is going wrong in the ecological system, Peterman said. “People who rely on salmon for their livelihoods, or their First Nations food and social and ceremonial purposes, really find sockeye populations very valuable, and so it’s important to keep them going at a productive level,” said Peterman, who conducted the research with post-doctoral fellow Brigitte Dorner.

“Furthermore, there are very strong and important concerns about the long-term viability of many sockeye populations as well as other salmon populations, other species.” The study was originally produced for the Cohen Commission, the judicial inquiry examining the 2009 collapse of the Fraser River sockeye salmon run, and crunched data on the productivity of 64 sockeye salmon stocks in Washington state, B.C., and Alaska between 1950 and 2009. What emerged was a trend showing sockeye-salmon declines on the Fraser River were not unique and were happening on a wider scale and much farther north than originally anticipated.

But hundreds of hotel guests were evacuatedwith many having to spend the night at other hotels in the cityt. As a result of the fire, dozens of airline passengers were also thrown off schedule later that day because several Westjet flight crews were staying at the hotel and also had to be evacuated meaning they did not get the prescribed rest required to be able to fly the next day. According to the hotel manager, Gavin Parry,, the damage will cost in excess of $100,000 to repair, and much of it was caused by water used to fight the flames, as well as by the smoke.

Huge settlement for group of nurses THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - A group of nurses and their union say the federal government has agreed to pay them more than $150 million in a payequity settlement that dates back to 1978. The settlement puts an end to eight years of legal wrangling before the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal. Medical adjudicators who work for the Canada Pension Plan’s disability program want to be paid as health professionals and not as administrative staff. They say the per-

person payout is among the largest settlements agreed to by Ottawa, with some long-time employees set to receive up to $250,000 plus interest, compensation for pain and suffering, and extra pension. Union representatives said the ruling affects up to 1,000 past and present nurses. Ruth Walden, the medical adjudicator who led the human rights challenge, says the settlement is a compromise, but one that

sets an important standard for recognition of the nursing profession. She filed a gender discrimination complaint in 2004 with the Canadian Human Rights Commission, saying that the mainly female adjudicators at the CPP disability program were performing the same job as the mainly male medical advisers, but were paid far less. Her complaint was eventually joined by more than 200 other

OTTAWA Embattled International Co-operation Minister Bev Oda is stepping down as an MP at the end of this month, just as speculation heats up about a shake-up in the cabinet ranks. Oda’s spending habits had become national water-cooler talk earlier this year, when it was revealed she had rejected one fivestar hotel in London for another swankier establishment at more than double the cost. She had also hired a luxury car and driver for an average of $1,000 per day. Oda repaid the difference in rooms, the limo service, and the cost of a $16 glass of orange juice during an intense week of criticism in the House of Commons and in the public sphere. But it was not the first time she had reimbursed the public purse for spending, and the talk around Ottawa was that her days in cabinet were numbered. In a statement on Tuesday, Oda said it had been a privilege to have served the constituents in the riding of Durham. She did not say why she was resigning, and her office said was not available for comment.

Some questions about Oda’s spending habits abroad have yet to be resolved. Records show that Oda modified the amounts related to expenses on a number of recent trips, but has refused to reveal why those figures were changed. The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) has been inundated with access to information requests in the past few months. Oda faced another major controversy at

CIDA, when aid organization Kairos was turned down for government funding in 2009. Oda originally said in 2010 the agency did not approve funding because Kairos’ proposals did not meet the government’s standards. But Oda was later forced to apologize when a document turned up showing that CIDA officials had actually greenlighted the funding, but she had the word “not� inserted into the approval form.

hat Germany is almost singlehandedly providing the funds to bailout their bankrupt country didn’t deter angry Greeks from burning its Chancellor in effigy during last month’s Greek election campaign. And for a few hours after that election returned parties in favour of staying in the Eurozone, financial markets cheered the news. Then reality set in as investors, realizing that continuing to pour cash into hopelessly dysfunctional Greece would only diminish the Eurozone’s chances of saving other beleaguered members, drove Spain’s borrowing rates to record highs. The European situation is so bad that near zero yield US Treasury Bills, issued by a country whose debt clock is registering US$15.8 trillion and spinning ahead at over US$1.3 trillion per year, are viewed as a safe haven. And the chances of slowing down the U.S. debt clock are small indeed. As social program entitlements make up half of expenditures balancing the budget would mean cutting all other expenditures by a staggering 70 per

cent. Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek summed up the entitlements problem in his famous book The Road to Serfdom, “If you guarantee to some a fixed part of a variable cake, the share left to the rest is bound to fluctuate proportionally more than the size of the whole”. My recent column titled “The rise of the entitlement class,” garnered a lot of feedback. One reader forwarded an unattributed piece that put entitlements into perspective. “The folks who are getting the free stuff are mad at the folks who are paying for the free stuff because they can no longer pay for both the free stuff and their own stuff.” You don’t have to leave Canada to find application for this statement. The ‘takers” turning against the “givers” mentality exists across our country, but nowhere is it more virulent than in La Belle Province, where student protests continue ad infinitum in support of their special brand of free stuff, otherwise known as the “Quebec Model”. NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair demonstrates his own version of being “mad at the folks who are paying


MORGAN Troy Media

for the free stuff” by vilifying Alberta’s resources which fund the lion’s share of Quebec’s $7 billion annual equalization payments. Meanwhile, Quebec’s university tuition fees are half of those paid by Alberta students. Perhaps it’s not surprising that Quebec’s protesting students and Mulcair share the same mentality. It’s become clear that those paltry tuition increases are just a sidebar for the students’ actual goal of replacing free market Capitalism with government-controlled Socialism. And the NDP is, by its own definition, a Socialist political movement. Germany’s post-war history provides an instructive comparison of Socialism

versus Capitalism. By the time the Berlin Wall came crashing down in 1989, West Germany had risen from the ashes to become the world’s second largest economy, while East Germany was an impoverished economic wasteland. The people shared the same ancestry, including many family members separated by the wall. The difference was command and control subjugation under Socialism versus Capitalism’s freedom of enterprise and innovation. The same phenomenon is being repeated today in China, where relatively small steps toward free market capitalism are lifting hundreds of millions out of abject poverty. Given that it was just last century when Socialism brought unspeakable poverty and despair to over half of the worlds’ population, how can it be that so many young people want to turn the clock back? A timeless truth – “Those who don’t learn the lessons of the past are doomed to repeat them” – applies. How many students have been taught those lessons? The reality is our schools and universities not only fail to

teach those sad historical lessons, but many teachers and professors actually espouse anti-free enterprise rhetoric. It seems that little has changed since 1944 when Hayek wrote “The younger generation of today has grown up in a world which, in school and press, the spirit of commercial enterprise has been represented as disreputable and the making of profit as immoral . . .”. This history lesson takes us full-circle to ancient Greece, the cradle of democracy. In 1787, Scottish history professor Alexander Tytler wrote about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can exist only until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse over loose fiscal policy.” Gwyn Morgan is a Canadian business leader and director of two global corporations.

Buyer beware with door-to-door salesmen

As a local security professional working in the Kootenays I am dismayed at these door to door sales people using false information to sell a security system. I asked my wife about a week ago if these people come to the door allow them to do their sales pitch. The other day a rep, came to our house, he spoke with my wife about upgrading her alarm and that it is old technology and can be compromised (all this without looking at it). He then went on to talk about their system can do much more, he bragged on how many people have signed up and gave names and addresses. He then went on to say they would upgrade the system for free and use more superior products, and that she would get the system for free. When asked about monitor-

ing rates he went on a spiel about it depends on what is installed, but ranges from 30 – 45 monthly with a contract. She took all the info and said she would talk it over with her husband, but this salesman wouldn’t leave he attempted to force her to sign with scare tactics, he tried many times with his pitches which were so staged and rehearsed. Finally he left when our phone rang. Now my advice to all people having these characters come to your door is this; don’t sign anything, remember just because someone tells you it is great doesn’t make it so, be informed get facts, do research on the company and call one of your local security companies. As for the salesmen’s visit with my

wife, I found it humorous that he questioned our system without seeing it. His statement about new technology, I can tell you that the systems they are offering are nothing great and probably 90 per cent of mine and my colleagues’ clients have system that exceed what they offer. In his pitch he mentioned other people who had purchased a system; I am concerned about how people are willing to provide personal information to be used as a sales tool. They may act like a friend, but are not, they are commission sales people making a sale. His monitoring info was interesting; I can say that rates do not depend on what is installed. Monitoring on average is around $20 in the Kootenays. Here are some B.C. regulations; All persons

selling, installing or servicing alarm systems in B.C. must be licenced and should have a copy of their picture ID provided by the government on them. All companies installing must have an electrical contractor’s licence and electrical permits must be provided for all installs. Now a bit about me the author; I have been working in the security industry for over 25 years which also includes my time with the Sheriff’s Department where I was employed as a deputy sheriff. I have my trades certificate for security installation and servicing and have many training certificates that relate to the security field. I am licensed with the province as a security; consultant, installer and guard. William Trowell Trail

Musings during a wet afternoon The Western Front must have looked like this. Earth and rocks, blasted, torn and scattered; pools of murky water filling every rain-soaked depression; the accumulated detritus of hard fought conflict, here piled high in tangled heaps of twisted metal, there semi-submerged in the clinging mud like dead, wasted limbs desperately reach for the light. Snaking across this desolate land the trenches conceal the men, grim and determined, labouring beneath the ground, readying for the next phase of this interminable campaign that wages back and forth along the tortured front. Trenches dug are filled and dug again in accord with the mysterious stratagems of distant generals. It will all be over by Christmas, they say. Meanwhile the monstrous tracked machines roar, clank and squeal in deafening clamour as they gouge out the land, while others pound like rapid fire artillery shaking the ground

and rattling the windows of the estaminets behind the wire. Periodically, great blasts shatter the rock deep beneath the ground, heaving up the earth in a thunderous roar. Men look about them, smile nervously, not this time. There are no bullets flying, though one can easily imagine as people duck through the gaps in the wire and dash quickly across no-mans-land, dodging the endless convoys of behemoths lumbering by on their way to the Front, with just a cursory wave to the MPs struggling valiantly to maintain some kind of order amid the chaos of ceaseless daily change. It may not be war, but there are those who will still decry the folly of it all, the enormous cost not only to those who survive this epic struggle, but to their children and to the generations yet unborn. Others see this as an opportunity for renewal, tearing out

the old order and building for a future that is beyond our imagination - hopefully of greater import than the turmoil of where and at what angle we should park our cars. Ah, the clue. Yes, far from the storied fields of Flanders, it is the Mountain Kingdom now caught up in this epic trial, testing the courage and patience of its inhabitants as they daily navigate around the gashed belly of our beleaguered town. It is not Flanders, but if it were we should then have something really worth complaining about. So let our imaginations flow. See our downtown as it will be, imagine what it could be, then let us make it so, as the skylarks sing and the poppies grow. The Great War was not to be the war to end all wars, but ours will hopefully be good for another hundred years. And it will definitely be over by Christmas. Graham Kenyon Rossland

Female baseball player inspired movie ‘League of Their Own’

Beloved actor’s career spanned 50 years THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RALEIGH, N.C. - It was all too easy to confuse Andy Griffith the actor with Sheriff Andy Taylor, his most famous character from “The Andy Griffith Show.” After all, Griffith set his namesake show in a makebelieve town based on his hometown of Mount Airy, N.C., and played his “aw, shucks” persona to such perfection that viewers easily believed the character and the man were one. Griffith, 86, died Tuesday at his home along the coast, Dare County Sheriff Doug Doughtie. “Mr. Griffith passed away this morning at his home peacefully and has been laid to rest on his beloved Roanoke Island,” Doughtie told The Associated Press, reading from a family statement. Although Griffith acknowledged some similarities between himself and the wise sheriff who oversaw a town of eccentrics, they weren’t the same. Griffith was more complicated than the role he played - witnessed by his three marriages if nothing else. But that perception led people to believe Griffith was all that was good about North Carolina and put pressure on him to live up to an impossible Hollywood standard. He protected his privacy in the coastal town of Manteo, by building a circle of friends who revealed little to nothing about him. Strangers who asked where Griffith lived would receive circular directions that took them to the beach, said William Ivey Long, the Tony Award-winning costume designer whose parents were friends with Griffith and his first wife, Barbara. Craig Fincannon, who runs a casting agency in Wilmington, met Griffith in 1974. He described his friend as the symbol of North Carolina. That role “put heavy pressure on him because every-

With great grace, he handled the constant barrage of people wanting to talk to Andy Taylor,” Fincannon said. In a 2007 interview with The Associated Press, Griffith said he wasn’t as wise as the sheriff, nor as nice. He described himself as having the qualities of one of his last roles, that of the cranky diner owner in “Waitress,” and also of his most manipulative character, from the 1957 movie “A Face in the Crowd.” “But I guess you could say I created Andy Taylor,” he said. “Andy Taylor’s the best part of my mind. The best part of me.” Griffith had a career that spanned more than a half-century and included Broadway, notably “No Time for Sergeants;” movies such as Elia Kazan’s “A Face in the Crowd”; and records. “No Time for Sergeants,” released as a film in 1958, cast Griffith as Will Stockdale, an over-eager young hillbilly who, as a draftee in the Air Force, overwhelms the military with his rosy attitude.

Establishing Griffith’s skill at playing a lovable rube, this hit film paved the way for his sitcom. He was inducted into the Academy of Television Arts Hall of Fame in 1992 and in 2005, he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, one of the country’s highest civilian honours. “There is no doubt in my mind why Andy Griffith and the shows he starred in and produced were so beloved by Americans and people around the world,” Norman Brokaw, who had been his agent for more than 50 years, said in a statement. “Behind his immense talent was simply a wonderful person.” Griffith’s television series resumed in 1986 with “Matlock,” which aired through 1995. On this light-hearted legal drama, Griffith played a cagey Harvard-educated attorney who was Southern-bred and -mannered with a leisurely law practice in Atlanta.

spoiled the mood), Matlock could toy with a witness and tease out a confession like a folksy Perry Mason. This character - law-abiding, fatherly and lovable - was like a latter-day homage to Sheriff Andy Taylor, updated with silver hair and a shingle. In short, Griffith would always be best known as Sheriff Taylor from the television show set in a North Carolina town not too different from Griffith’s own hometown of Mount Airy, which is located near the state line with Virginia, about 120 miles northwest of Raleigh. In 2007, Griffith said “The Andy Griffith Show,” which initially aired from 1960 to 1968, had never really left and was seen somewhere in the world every day. A reunion movie, “Return to Mayberry,” was the top-rated TV movie of the 1985-86 season. Griffith set the show in the fictional town of Mayberry, N.C., where Sheriff Taylor was the dutiful nephew who ate pickles that tasted like kerosene because they were made by his loving Aunt Bee, played by the late Frances Bavier. His character was a widowed father who offered gentle guidance to son Opie, played by little Ron Howard, who grew up to become the Oscar-winning director of “A Beautiful Mind.” The show became one of only three series in TV history to bow out at the top of the ratings (The others were “I Love Lucy” and “Seinfeld.”). Griffith said he decided to end it “because I thought it was slipping, and I didn’t want it to go down further.” “A performer of extraordinary talent, Andy was beloved by generations of fans and revered by entertainers who followed in his footsteps,” President Barack Obama said in a statement. “He brought us characters from Sheriff Andy Taylor to Ben Matlock, and in the process, warmed the hearts of Americans everywhere.”

Sams was named the league’s player of the year following the 1947 season, according to the website. A pitcher turned outfielder, she was named to the All-Star team at both positions.

But her athleticism didn’t stop there. She pitched a perfect game for the Muskegon Lassies in 1947. She batted .280, the third highest average n the league, and she had 41 RBIs.

Minor All Stars prep for provincials BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

While the Trail Major All-Star team gets set to host the B.C. championship at Andy Bilesky Park later this month, Trail’s other Little League team is prepping for provincials as well this week. Trail’s Little League Minor All-Stars recently formed and is hitting the field and the ball hard to prepare for the provincial championship in North Vancouver July 13. “We’re a 10 and under classification, and it’s a team mixed up of Trail (7), Castlegar (2), Fruitvale (2) and Nelson (1) players,” said Trail minor all-star team coach Chris Elwood. The wet month has put a damper on the team’s practice schedule, and with just over a week left, the team has scheduled a flurry of practices and a tournament in Potlatch, Idaho this weekend. The Trail minor team is coming off a wake up call in Coeur d’Alene where they faced teams in an older age group, and while

the team battled hard, it came away without a win. “They were pretty intimidated going out there, but we were in every game through four innings and then the fifth and sixth – it left us,” said Elwood. “It’s simple things, it’s just making the easy plays and hitting the ball. The pitching was good and the catching was good. I think it will come.” Pitching plays a vital role in the provincial tournament as each pitcher is kept on a pitch count and the more balls thrown, the longer the hurler has to sit out. If a pitcher throws 20 or less pitches he or she can pitch the next day. Over 20 but less than 35 requires the player to take a day off of pitching. Above 35 and the player isn’t allowed to pitch for two days. The biggest challenge for the coach is planning a rotation with a strict pitch count, against teams they know virtually nothing about. “If we’re in a game and we’re battling hard, then maybe we’ll

leave our pitcher in for the full amount and he’ll have to sit for days, pitching wise. It’s one of those risks you take.” Elwood is pleased with the team’s depth on the mound led by aces Lucas Miracle, Dawson Clow, and Nate Ingram. “I think we’ll go into our first game and we’ll start who we think will give us the best chance to win. Not everyone’s going to pitch well everyday so we’ll just hope for the best.” The Trail team will face five teams from the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island that are still embroiled in district playoffs. “We just want to compete. Hope to do as well as we can, and give these kids an experience so they can go up to the older age groups. I know D. J. (Ashman, coach of the Trail majors) demands a lot out of his team and this will give them an idea of what they need to aspire to.” Trail last went to the Minor provincials in 2010 and finished with a 1-5 record.

Birds of a feather flocked together for the ninth annual Kelowna Baseball Blast cash tournament on the weekend, but in the end the Trail AM Ford Orioles’ drew a blank. After a pair of losses to the Kelowna Jays, the Orioles faced the Redbirds from Calgary with the victor advancing to the money round. The undermanned Trail team found its batting stroke and cashed in eight runs, however, the O’s pitching and defense were uncharacteristically average, as Calgary scored nine to advance to the final round. “The good news is that we hit better than we have all year,” said Jim Maniago of the Orioles in an email. “The bad news is the rest of our game wasn’t as good as usual. We need to put it all together.” Kyle Mace went 3 for 4 and Brady Glover was 2 for 3 at the plate to lead the attack. In all, 16 teams were expected to compete for $15,000 in prize money, but the San Diego Stars withdrew at the last minute due to a health issue with its coach/owner/bus driver. Without the Stars in its bracket,

the O’s played an extra game against the Jays, dropping the first one in a close 12-7 match, before conceding a 10-0 drubbing. “It was a mean-nothing game for us and I think the guys played it that way . . . No way that should happen against Kelowna,” said Maniago. For the second time in as many weeks, the O’s again found themselves with a mixed bench, and suffered because of it. Forced to insert players into unfamiliar positions cost them defensively, and also hurt the O’s normally solid pitching rotation. “We just don’t have the depth other teams do . . . We know we have some work to do, but hopefully we can finally get some good practices together for the next six weeks and start working on things and improving,” Maniago added. The O’s Pacific International League rival Seattle Studs beat Nanaimo in the final to win the tournament for the third straight year and pocket a cool $7,000. Trail is scheduled to play the San Diego Stars in a four-game series starting Friday at Butler Park, but the Stars’ status remains uncertain.


Trail picks up Berkholtz Smokies add key piece BY TIMES STAFF The Trail Smoke Eaters added size and leadership to the team on the weekend as they acquired Tyler Berkholtz from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Berkholtz, a 20-yearold forward, played the last three seasons in Alberni amassing 30 goals and 51 assists in 139 games, with 135 minutes in penalties. He counted 32 points in 47 games in 2011-12 and 38 in 53 games the previous season. “He’s a top six forward with three years already in the league and a proven scorer that is going to help us out tremendously,”

leadership qualities and experience, and the Penticton native is “Everything we’re looking for,” added Birks. In return, the Alberni Bulldogs receive future considerations.

VANCOUVER - The chance to play at home was too good for Jason Garrison to pass up. The new Vancouver Canucks defenceman had a chance to sign for bigger dollars elsewhere, but he opted to join the NHL club that he grew up watching instead. “I don’t think you should take anything for granted,” Garrison said Monday on a conference call. “I really look forward to playing in Vancouver. That’s where I’m from, and it’s definitely something I’m really excited about, and I can’t wait for it to start.” Garrison was speaking a day after the Canucks signed the former Florida Panther to a six-year contract worth an average of US$4.6 million a season. Garrison hails from the oceanside Vancouverarea community of White Rock, B.C. He joins the Canucks after four seasons with the Panthers organization, where he emerged as a 23-minutesper-game defenceman. Garrison, 27, recorded 16 goals - a new Panthers club record for defencemen - and 17 assists for 33 points in 77 games with Florida last season. He also compiled a modest 32 penalty minutes. The six-foot-two, 220-pound former University of Minnesota-Duluth rearguard added a goal and two assists in the playoffs. Garrison was viewed as a prime candidate to join the Canucks before free agency opened due to his Vancouver ties. He appeared to become expendable in Florida after the Panthers signed defenceman Filip Kuba away from the Ottawa Senators. General manager Mike Gillis has indicated Garrison’s deal was less than he could have earned elsewhere. Garrison said he had a handful of offers. “There was definitely a pretty big handful of teams. ... But at the end of the day, this is where I wanted to be,” Garrison said, adding his priority was to play for a Stanley Cup contender.


Carpenter out THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. LOUIS - St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a nerve issue in his shoulder that has sidelined him since spring training. The 37-year-old Carpenter wants to continue pitching. He’s been told the surgery to relieve compressed nerves in the shoulder could allow him to resume his career,

although there are no guarantees. The Cardinals had been optimistic Carpenter would pitch after the All-Star break until recently. A bullpen throwing session was cancelled on Monday because strength had not returned to the shoulder, and now the team is optimistic Carpenter will be ready for spring training. The surgery will be performed on July 19.

Take oversexed husband for neurological exam Dear Annie: My husband, “George,” seems to feel the need to constantly grope me. I mean from the time I get up in the morning until he leaves for his overnight shift, he’s trying to grab my breasts or squeeze my bottom. He does this whether we’re at a movie theater, the museum or the zoo. He does it when we’re walking outside, when he’s driving and even if I’m trying to cook. If he’s not trying to grope me, he’s talking about sex. He does it in public, too, and even in front of my in-laws. It’s his favorite, actually his only, topic of conversation. During the time we dated and for the first three years of our marriage, George and I had normal conversations about sports, politics, movies and books, but now it’s only sex, sex and more sex. Frankly, I can’t take much more of this. I’ve tried talking to him nicely about the



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

constant groping, I’ve gotten angry, I’ve tried diplomacy, and I’ve redirected his hands. I’ve told him bluntly how insulting it is to be grabbed while we’re in a restaurant and how alarming it is when he talks about sex during a concert. But it goes in one ear and out the other. When I try to steer the conversation into other areas, he always brings it back to sex. For medical reasons, my sex drive isn’t what it used to be. I try to accommodate George, and we are intimate even when I’m not feeling well. George is 52 and in fairly good health. He

isn’t on any medications, nor has he had any injuries that would account for this. I’m tired of the incessant groping and sex talk. How do I deal with this before I scream? -Married to an Octopus Dear Married: Get your husband to a doctor for a complete checkup, including a neurological exam. George’s fixation on sex is making it difficult for his brain to focus on anything else. If he is unable to control himself in public or in front of his own parents, it could indicate a serious medical problem. Dear Annie: Our office atmosphere is friendly and casual, and we emphasize an “open door policy” to encourage this. The problem is one coworker who constantly and loudly says, “Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk!” It has nothing to do with humor. If someone walked in and told him the building was

on fire, his response would be, “Yuk, yuk, yuk, yuk!” He also constantly whistles, snaps his fingers, etc. He’s a nice, considerate fellow, but he’s driving some of us to close our doors, and we wonder whether there’s a nice way to tell him his noisiness is a huge nuisance. Are these nervous tics that can be treated? -- Distracted in Los Angeles, Calif. Dear Distracted: It sounds as if your co-worker may have Tourette syndrome, a neurological disorder defined by multiple involuntary motor and vocal tics. We are certain he’s doing the best he can to control these sounds, so please be tolerant. You can get more information through the National Tourette Syndrome Association (tsa-usa. org). Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Beyond Sad,” who is thinking of leaving her mar-

riage after 40 years. I know how she feels. I left my husband after 38 years. She should go for it because she will realize how happy and relieved she will be when she isn’t stressing over every little

thing she does. Like my ex, no matter what you do or don’t do, it will never be good enough. She is making herself sick by staying in an unhappy marriage. Being with family and friends who love you is the best therapy you

can have. I never believed in a million years I could be this happy. I’m single, enjoying life and not worrying how to please a man who will never tell you he loves you. -- Happy Single

Wednesday, July 4, 2012 Trail Daily Times


YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Thursday, July 5, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a popular day, because you’ll enjoy schmoozing with others, especially female acquaintances. Group settings will please you. Talk to others about your hopes and dreams for the future. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Unexpectedly, aspects of your private life suddenly might be made public today. No doubt, this will relate in some way to your earnings or something you own. (Perhaps you have something to show off?) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Travel for pleasure will please you today. This is also a good day to explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Romance can be pleasing in an intimate way today. You

feel very affectionate to others, and they feel the same way toward you. This also is a good day for financial matters. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You won’t mind going more than halfway when dealing with others today, because the vibes are easygoing. Partners and close friends are cooperative. Expect to be introduced to someone new. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Things go so well at work today that you might receive praise or even a raise. Certainly, it’s easy for you to impress your superiors. (Good!) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a fun-loving, playful day! Accept invitations to parties, sports events, movies and casual get-togethers. Enjoy playful activities with children. Live it up! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might make improve-

ments at home today because of the assistance of others. Perhaps someone will give you something or let you use something he or she owns? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good day for writers, editors and salespeople. Your communication skills are excellent, and you’re also in a good mood! (That makes a big difference.)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Business and commerce are favored today, especially through your work. Look for ways to boost your income, especially through the sale of something attractive or beautiful. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a great day to schmooze with others. Accept invitations to party. Enjoy sports events and playful times

with children. New romance might blossom for some. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Solitude in beautiful surroundings will be soothing and pleasing for you today. Try to slip away for a little bit of private time just for you. YOU BORN TODAY You lead an exciting, dramatic life because you’re flamboyant by nature. Because you have a marvelous imagination, you love to explore many things.









(This is why others find you so entertaining.) A stable partner will help you. You are quick to act on any opportunity that interests you. Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big! Birthdate of: Robbie Robertson, musician; Edie Falco, actress; Katherine Helmond, actress.

City gets extension on dam decision



In June, Glenmerry Grade 7 students Mitchell Isenor and Josh Lee presented a cheque to Nola Landucci of the Trail Food Bank along with Rev. Keith Simmonds. The two boys led a class wide study on the Trail Food Bank and the Homeless Centre and shared their findings with the whole school. This resulted in a donation of items for the Food Bank and some cash from the student body.

The City of Greenwood will have until, July 13 to decide whether or not it takes over responsibility for Providence (Marshall) Lake Dam. The provincial government previously told Greenwood that it had to decide by the end of June. “The province extended the deadline to July 13, and agreed to provide $50,000 towards upgrading or decommissioning,� explained Christopher Stevenson, a former Greenwood city councilor and leader of a group aiming to preserve the lake. “They’ve consistently said that they estimated a $70,000 cost to decommission. We’re pushing now for (the government) to complete the maintenance and bring the dam up to dam safety standards. “They’re effectively passing costs on to us - costs for maintenance and repairs that they have not done, and are required to do, and we are expected to cover the costs of their neglect,� he said. “Give us a dam that meets safety standards.�
