Surplus puts Trail in fine fiscal form: Santori

Civic plaza plans on back burner

Summer market’s success may add another dimension to project



Trail’s civic plaza concept has progressed with a recent downtown property purchase, but it’s likely that it won’t gain momentum until next year. The city purchased the Eagles Hall for $335,000 in May and expects to tear the building down, open it up and look at the development of the downtown civic plaza concept. “It was bought awhile ago because it was consistent with the downtown action plan, but nothing is going to be done this year other than internal, environmental work,” Trail’s chief administrative officer David Perehudoff said. “There’s some asbestos in the drywall so we’ll remove that this year, and most likely the building will be taken down next year.” Despite the sale, the downtown civic plaza project has been placed on the back burner in an attempt to fast-track the Gateway project along Victoria Avenue. “I want to see that done before the snow falls,” councillor Kevin Jolly said about the Gateway. “Our focus hasn’t changed. Our goal is to bring people downtown—that’s the highest visibility—and we’re firmly committed to creating an attractive gateway, or entrance point, to get there.” Jolly was pleased with its current progress, including the Trail Memorial Centre’s exterior being painted and the A&W storefront being developed. He was also eager to find a way to beautify Bay Avenue. “I think the real story here is what is the entry point to town going to look like,” he concluded. “That’s the eye-catcher right now.” The civic downtown plaza is dependent on a seasonal strategy, one which could be greatly influenced with the recent success of the Esplanade Market in Trail. After only four market days, the Trail District and Chamber of Commerce went from hosting 15 vendors to 37. According to Maggie Stayanovich, the executive director of the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce, an average of 500 people attend the market biweekly and the numbers continue to grow.

A former Silver City mayor has tipped his hat to the current city council over a $1.5 million surplus the City of Trail now sports. Sandy Santori— mayor for nine years from 1990-1996, and 1999-2001—said the city is sitting pretty after its independent financial audit last month and that means the municipal body can now move in directions most governments fear to tread. With the public release Monday of the city’s 2011 Annual Report, including audited financial statements, and the Statements of Financial Information on its website, people can now follow the tax dollar and chart council’s prudence. “Now this (surplus) gives them some other options: beautify the city, pursue economic initiatives. Those are things that generally take a back seat when communities are strapped for cash,” Santori said. “I think the general public wants to see a more vibrant and rejuvenated downtown core and that’s also a high priority for the city.” During a June general government and

Put down the gaming console and opt for a healthier choice, like a swim. This summer marks the 80th birthday of the Rossland swimming pool and the Rossland Recreation Department wants the community to celebrate with a trip down memory lane. The miners in Rossland floated the idea of a pool to parliament in a night lettergram 80 years ago and a few weeks later the community was rewarded with a swimming pool. Senior lifeguard Mark Andrew began volunteering to help with research less than a month after relocating to the region for a summer job. “I was inspired by Robin (Hethey) and the pool today—in 2012—it’s the heart of the community in summer time,� he said. “I guess what I’d like to do is bridge the gap for the 94 year-olds, 44 year-olds and the four year-olds so they recognize what a special place it is.�

Andrew and Rossland’s recreation programmer Robin Hethey began collecting correspondence from the old Rossland Pool Society, financial records and museum archives. As a result, the history of the pool has been chronicled for the community to access in an online video. “I think the video is a really nice way to put a bunch of stills together,� she said. “But for me, as a visual person, it’s really cool to see someone who was a


child from the age of three or four years-old and then fifteen years later, there they are as staff wearing a uniform, and then fast forward another decade, and there they are as a mother. “Then add a few more years and then it’s their child.� But the duo’s research isn’t over yet. “One of the questions that remains is whether the Rossland pool is the oldest in the province or not,� she said, while detailing

the calls she has been making. “I know there are lots of other outdoor pools in the province, but I’m thinking the only way to get people to respond is to challenge them and say the Rossland Pool is the oldest in province.� The Rossland pool was built in the 1930s and one year later, it was complete with pump circulation and disinfectant and 80 years later the pool is still operational. The recreation

department is planning a birthday bash to celebrate their unique title on Aug. 15. There will be games, races and prizes open to the public between 1 and 4 p.m., the swim club will have activities between 6 and 6:30 p.m. and a floating movie night will begin at 8 p.m. To watch the video visit or to contribute content contact Hethey at recreation@rossland. ca.

LOCAL City’s surplus helps planning FROM PAGE 1 finance committee meeting, council declared it would be moving ahead with a few projects—including the Gateway phase of the Trail Downtown Plan—and creating a rainy day fund. Santori said the city’s current financial position was not a luxury, but a duty to its taxpayers. “If you are not fiscally responsible, at some point the community is going to pay for it,” he said. “(A surplus) doesn’t need to be an anomaly. It has to do with staying within your budget, staying within your means and having a good read of the public in terms of what things can be put off to give a good financial position down the road.” Sometimes, as much as public demand pressures for certain services, good government has to say ‘No’ and defer or deny the request,

Santori added. The audit available online now gives an overall picture of how the city is running— according to 2011 audited financial statements done by Craig Teindl of L. Soligos and Associates—looking at the city’s consolidated revenue by taking into account general operations, water and sewer operations, staff and capital funds, marrying it all together into one statement. The city had consolidated revenues of $19,128,549, around $1.8 million over budget for the year. On the other hand, consolidated expenditures were $17,606,440, approximately $3.21 million less than what the city had budgeted for. The city’s audit of its financial statements are now on the city’s website at http:// php?action=display&id=332.

Positive feedback on market location BREANNE MASSEY PHOTO

Kids get in touch with the stars BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

He thinks of himself as a tour guide of the sky. Taghum astronomer Wayne Holmes visited summer students from the Strange But True Summer Reading Club at the Trail and District Public Library’ on Tuesday afternoon. Children from the Creative Expressions group were assigned a group of books to read about the solar system, answer questions about their reading assignments and learned how to use two differ-

ent telescopes. In addition, each child borrowed a pair of special sunglasses from Holmes to look directly at spots on the sun without hurting their eyes at the end of the day. “I think (Tuesday) went really well,” said Hilary Chayko, a summer student employee. “Seeing the telescopes and being able to see the sun without the fear of it actually hurting their eyes was really good. When I was talking to some of the kids about what we were going to be doing,

most of them actually said ‘you can’t look at the sun it hurts your eyes.’” Astronomy is one of the oldest forms of science in the world, it involves looking at stars, planets and galaxies. But each week brings something new to the literary frontier. The free summer camp is part of a province-wide initiative to keep kids reading outside of the school year, and it features a special guest and a new topic every Tuesday afternoon at 2:30.

Council supports intersection improvements BY CRAIG LINDSAY Castlegar News

At a special meeting held on July 26, Castlegar City Council agreed to send a letter to the Ministry of Transportation supporting intersection improvements to Minto Road and Highway 22, by the Brick on the south side of town.

“That area has been a high impact area for accidents,” said councillor Sue Heaton-Sherstobitoff. “Anything that can be done there to alleviate accidents and deaths, is, obviously, a good thing.” The project is expected to cost $1.6 million and begin within a couple of weeks.

FROM PAGE 1 “We definitely have more room to grow,” Stayanovich said. “The opportunity is there. We could probably get 60 vendors in there—it just depends how creative you want to be.” While Stayanovich is pleased with the success of this year’s market, she admitted that the Trail District and Chamber of Commerce hasn’t evaluated the impacts the development could have when ground breaks on the plaza concept. Not everybody was

neutral about the idea. “It’s going to be a space issue. If we get to a place where we have 50 vendors and we’re doing a development, there’s going to have to be some give and take,” explained Jolly. “Until you map out the site and know what’s going to be built there, it’s hard to determine what space will be available.” Jolly declared it was “premature” to determine what could happen to the market until more research has been completed, although

his personal opinion was that moving the market would be a “strategic mistake.” “The market has been a real success and we’re very happy with how that’s going,” he said. “It’s working well the way it is right now, and we’re happy with the success that we’ve had so far. “A lot of the positive feedback we’ve been getting is around the setting so we’ll do what we can to try and maintain its current location,” he concluded.

Meter switch sparks incident BY W. G. HAMILTON Alberni Valley News

A technician changing out a BC Hydro meter for a smart meter sparked a minor incident at a Port Alberni business on Tuesday. The Port Alberni Fire Department responded to an incident at the 4600 block of Margaret Street at approximately 4:30 p.m. Witnesses reported seeing a technician wearing blue overalls working on a meter beside a business when they heard a loud “Bzaap� sound and saw

sparks coming from near the top of a power pole across the street, and smoke rising along one end of the power line. The technician appeared from the side of the building and wasn’t hurt. “He (technician) told me that the inside of the old meter base crumbled in his hand when he was changing it out,� AV News employee Sonja Drinkwater said. Firemen checked the building and the meter base and departed after finding no danger to the building or sur-

VICTORIA – The B.C. legislature’s internal finances are being dragged into the 21st century in response to a damning report from Auditor General John Doyle. MLAs will start releasing detailed expense reports and conducting Legislative Assembly Management Committee meetings in public starting this month, Speaker Bill Barisoff announced after a hastily arranged meeting to respond to the audit. Two new financial staff positions are being added to address what Doyle called “pervasive deficiencies� in basic financial accountability. The audit found that MLA credit card bills were being paid without receipts, and the legislative assembly hasn’t produced financial statements despite a 2007 recommendation from the previous auditor general. Legislature bank records didn’t correspond with actual bank balances, and records for the gift shop and dining room don’t allow for efficient management. Doyle said a future audit will look at the $119,000 annual allowance for MLA constituency offices, which Barisoff had asked to be exempted from the current examination.

Miami rapper makes trip to Alaska Walmart THE ASSOCIATED PRESS KODIAK, Alaska - Miami rapper Pitbull can now say he’s safe from bears in Alaska. Pitbull received a care package Monday from Walmart during his visit to Kodiak, complete with bear repellent spray and bear bells used by hikers to make noise, the Kodiak Daily Mirror reported. The bear spray had special meaning to about 250 people who attended the Pitbull appearance at the Coast Guard base in Kodiak. The rapper had tweeted he heard the local Walmart sold the spray. In a marketing deal, Pitbull - whose real name is Armando Christian Perez - agreed to visit the Walmart that got the most likes on its Facebook page. Kodiak was the easy winner, thanks to David Thorpe, a Boston writer who thought it would be funny to send Pitbull to the most remote Walmart possible. Thorpe also was in Kodiak Monday and met the rapper. Pitbull was a good sport, receiving a key to the city from Kodiak Mayor Pat Branson, who donned shades to mimic the dapper rapper’s look. Pitbull tweeted a picture of him holding a child onstage alongside Alutiiq dancers and said, “Thank U Kodiak ... I am honoured, truly.� The rapper, known as “Mr. Worldwide,� told the audience he would put Kodiak into a future song.

B.C. has other option to alleviate dangers of oil spill


.C. Premier Christy Clark’s demand for payments in return for permission to ship oil across B.C. lands is ill advised. Regardless whether these payments are to take the form of a claim on Alberta’s royalties or based on the amount of oil flowing through the pipe, they are equivalent to taxes on trade which, like tariffs on imports from abroad, raise consumer prices and lower living standards of all Canadians. Such domestic tariffs are rightly prohibited by federal legislation. One way to extract money from the proposed pipeline that current federal legislation cannot prevent involves the use of provincial regulatory powers to delay indefinitely the construction of the pipeline until payments are agreed to. If the B.C. government were to adopt this policy, it would almost certainly invite retaliation from other provinces on the same grounds used by B.C. All shipments using roads, rail and air, like pipelines, carry the risk of

accidental environmental damage, justifying the issuance of use permits in return for fees. However, the most important objection to the B.C. demands is that it would do nothing to address the public’s real concerns over the potentially high costs of oil spills on the environment and taxpayers. Tolls would not create incentives that induce pipeline operators to adopt optimal techniques to reduce the frequency and severity of accidental spills from their presently feared levels. It has to be remembered that the operators of pipelines are already legally required to pay for all cleanup operations according to standards set by provincial authorities. To reassure British Columbians that such cleanup costs will be met, the government has the right to insist on setting minimum levels of insurance coverage, much as it does for private automobile insurance. It could also insist on the establishment of a trust fund


GRUBEL Troy Media

that would be available in the case of cleanup costs in excess of what is covered by the insurance. For some vocal British Columbians, the cleanup of the environment and coverage of economic costs is not enough. They also experience a psychological loss from the knowledge that after an oil spill, it always takes some – possibly a long – time for nature to return to its original state. To compensate the public for these psychological costs, the B.C. government could impose on the pipeline operator a fine equal to a specific percentage of the cleanup costs for each spill. All of these provincial

policies would raise the costs of pipeline operators, but they are fair since they reflect society’s real economic and social costs. Importantly, they create incentives that lead to the adoption of costly and presently unprofitable measures to reduce the likely number and severity of oil spills. There will be the use of thicker or double-walled pipes, the instalment of pressure gauges with automatic shut-off valves at closer intervals, the maintenance of facilities to allow quicker and easier access to accident sites and repair tools and materials. The incidence and severity of oil spills along the coast could be reduced similarly by the mandated use of several powerful tugboats to push the tankers through treacherous waters at low and safe maximum speeds only under favourable weather conditions. Eventually, other measures will be developed and applied to the prevention of oil spills on land and sea. No measures, however expensive, can prevent

all oil spills, as the small minority of self-appointed guardians of the environment and their allies in the media are fond of pointing out. Only the outright prohibition of all oil transports will end all risks. However, the majority of British Columbians are sensible on this issue, realizing that stopping all future and possibly the existing systems for the delivery of oil products would be disastrous for the economy and the wellbeing of all Canadians. This majority will surely vote for politicians who support policies ensuring they will continue to be able to keep their homes warm, their cars running and shelves in their stores stocked while they enact and enforce policies that induce pipeline operators to adopt the best methods for minimizing oil spills and maximizing the protection of the environment.

Many factors at play in downtown woes I have returned to the Trail area after an absence of about 20 years. The changes were very noticeable. Mr. Catalano is correct in his assessment of the Trail core situation (“Business licence protest puts downtown economy in spotlight,� Trail Times July 25). There are a considerable number of factors, which create this condition. One of the early ones was the Teck down sizing and the elimination of apprenticeships etc. With the exodus of young families from the area came the loss of customers. The building of the Waneta Plaza has also had an effect, although the downsizing was the more dramatic. Add Walmart to the mix, and you have most of the negative impacts driving the Trail core condition. Although it may be hard to initially recognize it, globalization and the Free Trade Agreement also compounded the situation as out sourcing eliminates overhead in form of employees and the associated costs (payroll, benefits,and so on) which allegedly makes a business more viable. The busi-

ness, however needs customers, and since the majority of these customers are leaving town due to no employment the business area withers and dies. Trail’s major employer, the smelter, is a globally marketed producer and therefore is not impacted by this downward spiral until they need a workforce. Now the local economy becomes a factor for this business. How do you attract new blood to a withering community? The U.S. shopping situation is not a help to local business either. Variety and pricing are strong attractions and while there used to be a protectionist position with respect to importing, globalization and free trade have pretty much eliminated this. To be fair to local business their suppliers are contributing to chasing away customers. These wholesalers (often based in Ontario ) fail to understand the symbiotic relationship of supply and demand. Since the wholesaler will not appropriately service their retailer clients, business is essentially driven to the USA. While buying stateside,

these potential customers consume other goods as well as hotels, restaurant and night life services and a host of other attractions. Once this trend is established, it is hard to turn around. I find it interesting that the greater Vancouver business area treats everything east and north of Hope like Toronto, and Ontario at large, treat the rest of Canada. Basically a “who cares about them,� attitude. The political mess in Victoria over the last 15 years or so just drives this situation along even more. We are now at the point where the little guy consumer no longer trusts the big guy business and due to Victoria’s ineptness, the consumer lumps much of medium and small business in with the multinationals. Bleak picture? You bet. If we collectively in our communities, our provinces, and our country don’t start to pull together to fix these issues we will continue to slide down the slippery slope toward third world status. Good luck to us all. J. G. Thompson Genelle

Swimmer deserves accolades not questions An editorial from the Toronto Star When you strip away the pageantry and ever-increasing commercialism, the Olympics are about amazing feats of athleticism. Millions of people tune in every four years to watch summer athletes compete against each other-and the clock-in their drive to go faster, higher or be stronger than anyone else on the planet. The world saw that on July 28 when swimmer Ye Shiwen broke the world record to win gold in the 400-metre individual medley. We watched on Monday when Ye broke the Olympic record during the semi-final of the 200-metre individual medley and, once again, on Tuesday when she smashed that record to win gold in the final. How unfortunate, then, that instead of widespread accolades, this 16-year-old from China has been given the arched eyebrow for her spectacular swims. Too spectacular, some say. To date, there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Ye has ever taken a banned substance. Indeed, there’s a fair bit to prove she hasn’t. She - like other athletes competing in London - has been repeatedly tested and

cleared. And yet, because she’s a Chinese swimmer, a dark shadow is being hung over her skill and success. China does have a history, particularly in the 1990s, of athletes failing drug tests but, then, so do many other countries. What China also has - which, by itself could account for the nation winning gold at these Games and, really, all those in the future-is a focused sports system. They don’t wait for children to show an interest in a particular sport. They do not rely on parents to pay for lessons to see if a budding athlete is committed enough to put hours of practice ahead of hanging out with friends. China scoops up young children based on their physical attributes - Ye’s abnormally large hands were spotted by a teacher - and ships them off to state training camps where winning gold is all that matters. Start with an enormous population, add a plan to identify gifted kids, back it up with a wellfunded and hyper-focused training program and it’s little surprise that China is doing so well in the pool, on diving platforms and in the gymnastics arena. To be sure, some world-class athletes do still use drugs as a

shortcut to the top. That’s why we have a world anti-doping agency and why thousands of tests were done in the lead-up to London, and are continuing. A handful of athletes have been banned from these Games because of positive tests. But not Ye. She is “clean� and “deserves recognition for her talent,� says the head of the British Olympic committee. We all have preconceived notions about what countries and individual athletes can do. But, in their purest form, the Olympics are about smashing those and reminding us that the extraordinary is possible. When Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe swept up all the golds in his freestyle events at the Olympics in Sydney he was called the Thorpedo. When American Michael Phelps won gold in, well, just about everything at the Games in Athens and Beijing (and on July 31 added to his medal count, making him the most decorated Olympian ever), he’s called the greatest swimmer of all time. There are no arched eyebrows for their achievements. How sad that Ye’s achievements have been treated so differently.

B.C. swimmer finally garners elusive Olympic medal THE CANADIAN PRESS LONDON - Swimmer Brent Hayden finally got his hands on an Olympic medal with a thirdplace finish in the 100-metre freestyle. The native of Mission, B.C., narrowly beat out two competitors to earn the final spot on the podium. “Tonight was just (about) digging down deep right into my soul,” said Hayden. “I had that extra push to push me beyond what I was capable of.”

Hayden has long dreamed of stepping on an Olympic podium, but fell short in previous attempts in Athens and Beijing. His time finally arrived in a race where he finished behind American Nathan Adrian and Australian James Magnussen. “There are so many times when you can dream of something but a million out of a million and one times it won’t come true,” said Hayden. “This was one of the things that I was very fortunate as a human being to have

happen to me.” It was only fitting that the 28-year-old ended up receiving his medal from IOC member Dick Pound, the only other Canadian man to qualify for a 100 freestyle final at the 1960 Games. Cyclist Clara Hughes, meanwhile, capped her remarkable Olympic career with a fifth-place finish in the women’s time trial. Hughes, a six-time medallist at the Games, was almost a minute behind gold medal winner American Kristin Armstrong.

However, she was completely satisfied with her final performance on the biggest stage in sports. “Honestly there were just people better than me,” said Hughes, a Winnipeg native who lives in Glen Sutton, Que. “I wasn’t good enough, that’s the bottom line. I felt good. I had a great race. My power was awesome and that’s it. “I took every corner as fast as I could. I rode smooth, I rode strong.”

Scott regroups after British Open collapse THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AKRON, Ohio There’s no silver claret jug for Adam Scott, only a silver lining. For two days after the British Open, where Scott lost a four-shot lead with four holes to play, he holed up at his home in the Swiss Alps and tried to digest what went wrong. The numbness he felt that Sunday evening, when Ernie Els was introduced as the champion golfer of the year, stayed with him. He didn’t beat himself up. He didn’t curl up in a corner. It was a time of quiet reflection, just like after every major. It’s when he went to the golf course at CransSur-Sierre to hit balls that his outlook brightened considerably. “I hit the first few balls, and I hit them nice,� Scott said Wednesday. “And that


Adam Scott of Australia reacts after missing a putt on the 18th green at Royal Lytham & St Annes golf club during the final round of the British Open Golf Championship, Lytham St Annes, England on July 22. was kind of a reminder that it’s not horrible and I don’t know how

to play golf anymore. It was just four holes that I’ll have to learn from and be tougher on myself next time I’m in that position, for sure.� That’s what Scott took away from Royal Lytham & St. Annes. He is convinced there will be a next time. He’s convinced there will be a major championship trophy in his name. Scott still hasn’t seen replays of that final hour. “Look, I can imagine how it probably looked,� Scott said. “If it was me watching somebody else, I certainly could feel for them. But for me ... I’m disappointed that I didn’t win from that position, but I left that major the same as I’ve left every other one - and that’s emptyhanded. “There wasn’t that much healing for me,�

Calling all brides to be!

Scott said. “My game is in really great shape, and I just took a few days to rest up, and I certainly analyzed the last few holes a little bit and took out of it what I wanted, and then just though about how great I played.� Els described his text messages with Scott as “buddy stuff.� Even now, he feels for the 32-year-old Australian. “The pain is there, I know that,� Els said. “But he’s handling it unbelievably well, and I truly think that he now believes he can win multiple majors. He had an opportunity. It didn’t quite happen his way. “And he’s young enough where he can bounce back and win quite a few.� Another text came from Rory McIlroy, who blew a four-shot lead at the 2011 Masters with an 80 in the last round. McIlroy won the next major with a record score at Congressional

in the U.S. Open. “I sort of felt like I knew how he was feeling,� McIlroy said. “I just said to him, ‘Don’t let the last four holes hide the fact that you played better than everyone else for the first 68. ... It’s tough. It’s a tough loss. At that moment in time, you think it’s the only chance you’re ever going to get, and your whole world came crashing down. But in reality, Adam is such a great player that he’s going to have plenty of chances to win more major championships.� That’s the way Scott is looking at it. “If I felt like that was my last chance, I might never play again. I’d be devastated,� he said. “I’m going to win. For me, the greatest thing for my career was to know that I can play that good in a major.� And he smiled at one last observation. It seems everyone feels sorry for Scott except him.

Relationships require trust, mutual respect Dear Annie: I am 54, and my girlfriend is 40. We’ve dated on and off for seven years. I love her, and I believe she loves me. The problem is, she is incredibly jealous and honestly believes every woman is attracted to me. Even if that were true, I don’t want “every” woman. My girlfriend is plenty of woman, and I want only her. But the jealousy drives me crazy. I can’t go anywhere or do anything without her thinking another woman is involved. Furthermore, she’s certain that I’m hot for my ex-wife. Annie, my ex-wife and I are great friends, but not to the point of reconciling. When my girlfriend has one of these jealous fits, she’s snide, snippy and just plain evil. We’re lucky if we can have three straight days of bliss. Somehow she believes getting married will make things better. I think marriage would



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

be a huge mistake considering our track record. We seem to be tearing our relationship to pieces. Please help. -- Going in Circles in the Circle City Dear Circle: Is your girlfriend willing to get therapy and work on her out-of-control jealousy and insecurity? If not, you will continue to have conflict, whether married or not. Relationships require trust and mutual respect, and yours doesn’t have either. We aren’t sure what you find so lovable about someone who becomes snide, snippy and evil every three days. Only you can decide whether she’s worth the effort.

Dear Annie: Several years ago, my brother and his wife moved several states away. When they visit, they stay with us because we have plenty of space. They always offer to pay for groceries and help with meals, so it’s a pleasure to have them. Their three children are now young adults. I am willing to accommodate them because it makes my parents happy. But these kids are not nearly as gracious as their parents. They seem to think I run a hotel and will provide three meals a day. The last visit, my nephew came with his 7-year-old son. When the boy wanted a snack, I told him to ask his father to fix him something. He replied, “Daddy is taking a nap and told me you would have food.” When I suggested to my nephew that he go to the store and get something, he simply said “no.” Last month, my

brother came with his other son and daughter-in-law. After several exhausting days, I suggested we all chip in for a pizza. When it arrived, my brother paid me, but my nephew just took his share and walked into the living room. Now my niece and her husband are coming for a week’s visit. She said she’d be happy to cook a meal. Annie, there will be 21 meals. I know I’m being taken advantage of, but I don’t want to cause hurt feelings. -- Auntie’s Bed and Breakfast Dear Auntie: You need to set some house rules. Stop preparing three meals a day. Have cereal, yogurt and other food available, and tell them to help themselves. Suggest they go out for dinner -- without you. If you stop being their cook, they will find other ways to eat. You also could tell your brother that his children need to be better guests or

they won’t be welcome anywhere. Dear Annie: Thank you for your response to “Clueless on Cancer Etiquette.” I hope all my concerned friends read it. My wife and I discuss what will even-

tually happen, and she lovingly helps me through those times when my mood shifts during the chemo treatments. For two years, I have learned what women go through with hot flashes. They are horrible.

I am developing my “bucket list,” but still trying to defy the odds. I am a youthful 81-yearold with many friends -- and you are now one of them. Thanks for your thoughtfulness. -A Traveler on the Final Journey

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Friday, Aug. 3, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a mystical day. (That’s why your Spidey sense is working overtime.) Trust your gut reactions. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Work with others today, especially in group situations, because you might be able to benefit someone. In turn, someone might say or do something that causes you to change your future goals. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful! Some aspect of your private life will be made public today. Be aware of this in case you have something to hide. (Who doesn’t?) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Confusion regarding travel plans might occur today; therefore, doublecheck schedules and details. Because your idealism is aroused, you will be attract-

ed to unusual philosophies and religions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Even though you feel sympathetic to others and you want to improve their situation, don’t give away the farm. Your feelings of sympathy might cloud your judgment today. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Feelings of mutual sympathy exist between you and close friends today. However, resist the urge to improve somebody. (This could go over like a lead balloon.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) In many ways, this is a good day to suggest improvements and reforms at work. (Perhaps you have ideas about how to improve your health.) Be realistic, and don’t shoot for impossible standards. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Romantic love can flour-

ish today. Nevertheless, your judgment might be off, so don’t jump into a new relationship with both feet and your hopes too high. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) If you can help a family member today, you will. Or perhaps, you need help from someone else. Either way, this is a good day for people to pull together for a common purpose.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might spend lots of time daydreaming or woolgathering, because it’s easy to drift off into fantasyland. Yet ironically, in discussions with others, you’re very convincing! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Be careful with all your financial negotiations today, because confusion is possible. For starters, wishing will

not necessarily make it so. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Because you are unusually tuned in to what others are thinking today, instead of promoting communication, it might confuse you.

Centre helps rescued elk calf get new lease on life still very wild, she cannot be restrained. “You can’t tie her up because she’s a wild animal,� she said. River is friendly towards Smith and her daughter, because they bring her food and have been bottle nursing her back to health. “We’re her mom because we bottle feed her,� Smith said. But other than that, the calf remains wild. She is being housed with several stray deer fawns, and is getting along just fine with them. River’s fawn-mates include white tailed and mule deer. “Everybody gets along,� Smith said. Because the animals often come to Barely Making It very young, they do not know any different beyond their home with other animals. River will remain in Smith’s care for about nine months and will be returned to the wild in the spring. She doesn’t release any animals until then because they may not survive the winter. Under her license with the province, Smith can keep wild animals for no more than nine months. “They don’t have a wild mom to show them,� Smith said. “They have a very much better survival rate (in the spring).�

She’s furry, covered in polka dots and has a new lease on life thanks to a bunch of helpful human friends. A female elk calf was found in, appropriately so, the Elk River near Fernie in late June. The calf, nicknamed River, was rescued by local conservation officers, who brought the struggling baby to Barely Making It Wildlife Rescue and Rehab in Jaffray. She was suffering from tendon damage on her rear leg, after being thrashed around in the high water. Wendy Smith of Barely Making It decided the little calf could be easily rehabilitated, and so the recovery effort began. “Her leg was cut up, but it didn’t look like it was going to be too bad,� she said. The calf was brought to Steeples Veterinary Clinic where they cleaned and disinfected the wound. Smith said the staff at the clinic gave up their lunch hours to help out the difficult patient. The leg was splinted and wrapped. After leaving the clinic, Smith has had her neighbours and friends help out with the cleaning of the wound. Because the elk is



Guillaume Courmont of the I.D.E.A.L. Society has a unique best friend. Courmont has been helping rehabilitate an orphaned elk calf after she got tangled up in Fernie’s Elk River. An elk isn’t the strangest wild animal Smith has had on her hands. She has also taken in moose and has many birds. “I don’t know what I don’t take in,� Smith laughed.

She will however, send predators like bears or wild cats on to those better equipped to rehabilitate them. “I just don’t have the facilities,� she said. “You would have to have a very secure wire cage.� After the severe wind storm that hit the area July 20, Smith said she had a neighbour bring in a nest full of Northern Flicker chicks whose tree had been knocked over. They survived the tumble and are now being rehabilitated at Barely Making It. She has also taken in baby deer from Kimberley who were orphaned when their mom had to be euthanized for aggressive behaviour. Smith said she keeps things in perspective, and does not take in any animals that are not capable of rehabilitation. She works with Steeples to determine if an animal is too ill to treat. “We have to be realistic,� she said. When she runs out of space or has too many animals to work with, Smith said she’ll share between nearby shelters. She recently sent four fawns up to a Nelson sanctuary, bringing her tally down to five. “(It was) a little much,� she said of the nine babies.
