Court rules teachers must be involved in class size decisions BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

A new B.C. Court of Appeal ruling on class sizes could put a crimp on the school district’s plan to increase its sizes for next year. The court ruled Friday that school administrators must be accountable to teachers when it comes to planning class sizes, overturning a 2009 arbitrator decision that as long as a class did not exceed 33 students, then only the opinions of a principal or superintendent mattered when determining if the size and composition were appropriate. However, in a move last March to deal with a budgetary shortfall, School District No 20 (Kootenay Columbia) decided to impose a districtwide rise of one student in the student-to-teacher ratio—from 24-1 to 25-1. SD20 board chair Darrel Ganzert said the increase will be within the realm of reasonability, but it could still be challenged by the teachers’ union. “The administrative team believed they could increase the numbers without risking class size controversies in the new school year,” he said.

Lightning storm sparks fire watch BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff

An early morning storm produced several lightning strikes in the West Kootenay on Wednesday. The storm, which struck around 5 a.m., drenched parts of the Kootenay South region accompanied with heavy lightning. “We had a couple of bands of lightning come up around the Trail-Salmo area,” said Ron Lakeman, weather forecaster for the Southeast Fire Centre. Karlie Shaughnessy, Southeast Fire information officer, estimated that the West Kootenay area received “hundreds of strikes in 12 hours.” Crews were mobilized late Wednesday morning to scour for potential hot spots in the Whiskey Creek area near Salmo. Shaughnessy added there were two small fires burning near Creston as a result of the lightning storm.

Police called in 10 members of the South Columbia Search and Rescue and two Rossland Search and Rescue members on Wednesday to comb the hillside between the arena and Teck Trail Operations in search of a 14-year-old Nelson girl.

Crews scour hillside for clues on missing girl BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Evidence in the case of a missing 14-year-old Nelson girl cropped up in Trail on Tuesday. Police confirmed they found some “personal items” near the stairwell behind the Cominco Arena belonging to Morgan Durocher, and had a canine unit out in the area Tuesday afternoon to follow the lead. On Wednesday police called in 10 members of the South Columbia Search and Rescue and two Rossland Search and Rescue members to comb the hillside between the arena and Teck Trail Operations. Although police thought it unlikely the girl would be found in the area—10 days after she was reported missing before “voluntarily” leaving Trail July 30—they had to take the necessary precautions and conduct a thorough search. There was reason to believe the girl

was still within the Trail and Nelson vicinity, said Trail RCMP Sgt. Rob Hawton. “We have no reason to believe she has come into any foul play at this point,” he said while on the search scene. Hawton suggested the teen might have slipped away to begin celebrating the Shambhala Music Festival a few days early. Monitoring of social media sites has indicated she may be heading there. He said undercover and uniformed police officers will be looking for her at the event which begins this weekend on the Salmo River Ranch, 30 kilometres east of Trail. Regional RCMP Staff Sgt. Dan Seibel said the investigation would continue as a missing person case. “But this is a unique investigation because this girl has run away previously,” he said. “There are no suspicious or extenuating circumstances that we are aware of.” As the days go by, he added, that

could change. Search and rescue members and the South Columbia’s canine unit were out Wednesday morning, dipping into the water with the swift water rescue team to cover the shoreline of the Columbia River from the Victoria Street Bridge to the U.S. border. “This makes us certain that she is not here,” said South Columbia president Ron Medland Wednesday morning. “This is part of our due diligence in the matter.” The members used a closed grid search of the hill as part of their search in the area near where the evidence was found. Durocher’s family notified police that she walked off from her foster home in Trail on July 30 and hasn’t been seen since. Hawton said this has happened before with Durocher but whenever a youth is involved they “have to take things seriously.”

A surge in abandoned campfires incidents while hot, dry temperatures remain has ignited concern from fire officials across the Southern Interior. Fire Information Officer Karlie Shaughnessy of the Southeast Fire Centre said fire wardens responded to 34 abandoned campfires over the B.C. Day long weekend, raising the number of abandoned campfires to 133 this season. Eleven of those were in the Arrow Lakes Zone, including Greater Trail and Nelson. “There were five in the Pend d’Oreille area and two were in the Nancy Greene campsite,� said Shaughnessy. “The rest were scattered throughout the area.� She urged outdoor enthusiasts to avoid leaving campfires unattended during other activities while the dry heat bakes the region. “While people are out enjoying the backcountry or camping, it’s critical that they remain vigilant and never leave their campfires unattended. If they do leave a fire unattended it’s a $345 fine, and if it causes a wildfire it could even mean jail time.� The fire danger rating is current-

 

  

ly high in the Southeast Fire Centre with the exception of the Columbia fire zone, which is low to moderate. In addition, a fire prohibition is currently in effect in the Southern Interior. “There is an open fire prohibition covering all of the Southeast fire centres, which includes any type of open burning, fireworks and burning barrels with exceptions to campfires under half a metre high and half a metre wide,� explained Shaughnessy. “It’s been in effect since July 13. So far, we have Sept. 19 listed for an end date but if weather permits we’ll lift it earlier.� Specifically, this prohibits the burning of any waste, slash or other material, the burning of stubble or grass, and the use of fireworks or burning barrels of any size or description in the areas outside of municipal boundaries. Open burning is not allowed in the City of Trail, as are fireworks. Last year the Southeast Fire Centre-which includes the Greater Trail region--had the slowest fire season on record in 50 years with 132 fires and 62 hectares burned. The Southeast prohibition does not include campfires, gas or propane cooking stoves or briquettes.

New school year will determine next step FROM PAGE 1 Kootenay Columbia Teachers’ Union president Andy Davidoff was not available for comment at press time. But B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert said the ruling was part of solving the real problem facing the education system. She felt the key to smaller class sizes and providing services to students with special needs was funding. What will happen in the SD20 schools when the young people settle into desks will not be known until September when classes resume and enrolment is set, Ganzert added. “At that point we will get some analysis and summary about what the implications are in the high schools,� he said. The rule under the School Act capped class sizes above Grade 4 at 30 students, “unless the principal consults with the teacher and the principal and superintendent from the opinion the class is appropriate for student learning.� Two months ago SD20 teachers and teachers across the province ratified a new agreement between their union and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association.

NELSON

Kootenay River drowning victim identified THE NELSON STAR The BC Coroners Service has identified Donald Morris, 64, as the victim in this past Saturday’s drowning on Kootenay River. Nelson RCMP received a call at approximately 4:22

p.m. Saturday to report a possible drowning at lower Marsden Road, just west of the Taghum Bridge. Several people had gathered on a rock outcropping known as Coyote Point to cool off in the slow moving river.

GRAPEVINE

Witnesses told police that Morris dove into the river for a swim, surfaced, and then swam out of sight. When other members of his party noticed he did not come to shore they conducted an extensive search of the

area. They found him under about 3.6 metres of water. The BC Coroners Service is now taking the lead on the investigation into the death and has not released any details as of Wednesday afternoon.

Fears that two rural post offices could be slated for closure have forced local government leaders to step in. At the Aug. 3 Regional District of East Kootenay board meeting, directors heard from the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (CPAA) that the postmaster in Wasa has recently retired, and imploring directors to urge Canada Post to keep the post office open. The letter prompted Area B Director Heath Slee to tell the directors that residents in Grasmere are also frustrated with Canada Post. Slee said that two months ago, Canada Post installed outdoor post office boxes on Highway 93 in Grasmere and advised residents by letter that their mail would be delivered to those boxes henceforth, instead of to boxes at the Grasmere post office. Residents who wished to keep collecting mail at the Grasmere post office would have to pay $125 a year to rent the box. “It’s not a good situation for their own public safety because they retrieve their mail from the boxes and then they have to pull out on the highway and turn around to go back to their residence,” said Slee. What’s more, it takes an extra day for the mail to be delivered because it has to be brought from the post office to the new boxes, he added.

“This has caused a lot of concern with residents and it certainly indicates there may be a movement afoot to close that post office when they divert mail,” said Slee. If the Grasmere post office were to close, residents would have to travel to Jaffray to pick up or send parcels. “It puts residents in a very difficult position, especially senior citizens who really rely on post offices to pick up parcels and pay bills,” said Slee. Meanwhile, the CPAA advised the board that the Wasa postmaster has recently retired, bringing concern for the future of that post office. “CPAA wants to be sure Canada Post goes through the necessary steps to hire a new postmaster and keep the Wasa post office open,” wrote Barb Lincoln, president of the CPAA’s BC and Yukon branch. “In most towns across Canada, the post office is the only federal government presence, and with the loss of the post office a community loses a very important part of its identity.” Without a local post office, residents have to travel to retrieve and mail large parcels and registered mail. Services such as government forms (e.g. passport applications) are no longer available in the community. Mail is no longer postmarked locally, delivery could be delayed, and jobs are taken out of the community.

REVELSTOKE

Province suing city over sidewalk BY AARON ORLANDO Revelstoke Times Review

The Province of B.C. is suing the City of Revelstoke after a person was seriously injured in a fall on a city sidewalk. The provincial goverment’s case is outlined in a notice of claim filed at the Vernon Supreme Court on July 17 by the Province’s lawyer, Peter R. Lawless. On August 10, 2006, Carleen Olga Tirling was walking on the sidewalk along Mackenzie Avenue between Third Street and Fourth Street. According to the claim,

Tirling’s shoe became wedged between cracks in the sidewalk, causing her to fall. She suffered “significant personal injuries, damages and loss.” These injuries included a fractured right ankle, left foot, chronic ankle pain, anxiety and sleeplessness. The province is suing Revelstoke for the cost of her past and future medical treatments, paid for by the province under the Medicare Protection Act. They are also seeking costs for the legal action. The exact dollar figure is not stated in the claim. The province says the City

of Revelstoke was negligent because the sidewalk was not safe for pedestrian traffic and the city didn’t take appropriate steps to remedy the situation. The city should have fixed the crack, or at least posted warning signs or barricades, the province claims. The province also claims that the City of Revelstoke failed to adequately ensure its employees knew of their responsibility to keep the sidewalks safe. The statement of claim is a first step in a process; the city or its insurers must now respond to the claim.

When contacted on July 26, City of Revelstoke chief administrative officer Tim Palmer said it was the first he had heard of the lawsuit. Palmer said the city would likely be covered by their policy through the Municipal Insurance Association, and didn’t likely face exposure because of the lawsuit. Palmer said legal claims against municipalities arising from trip-and-fall complaints are not that uncommon. However, claims by the province against municipalities are an increasing trend he’s noted over the past few years, Palmer said.

PROVINCIAL ABBOTSFORD

Toddler survives two-storey fall BY VIKKI HOPES Abbotsford News

A 16-month-old girl was treated in hospital for cuts and bruises on Tuesday night after she fell from a secondstorey window onto a driveway. Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald said the toddler had been playing alone on a coffee table in the living room of the home while her mom went downstairs to do laundry. It appears that the girl then repeatedly

pushed on the window screen, which gave way. Her mom discovered what had happened when she returned upstairs. The child was in the home with the mom when emergency crews arrived, and she was transported to hospital. MacDonald said the girl was lucky to have sustained only minor injuries from the eightfoot fall. “All the precautionary tests came back fine,� he said.

The toddler stayed in hospital overnight and was expected to be released Wednesday. MacDonald said the incident serves as a reminder to parents of the potential dangers in homes. A fall of this nature happens about once a year in Abbotsford, he said. In May 2011, an eight-year-old boy fell from a fourth-storey window on East Bourquin Crescent after he leaped onto a ledge and fell against the screen.

Nanaimo Fire Rescue crews hose down wood chip piles and a conveyor system after a fire broke out at the Western Forest Products mill at Duke Point Tuesday.

NANAIMO

Firefighters douse mill fire BY CHRIS BUSH Nanaimo News Bulletin

A fire in a conveyor belt Tuesday sent a massive column of black smoke over Nanaimo harbour and set piles of wood chips ablaze at the Western Forest Products mill at Duke Point . The fire started shortly after 5 p.m. and required several Nanaimo Fire Rescue trucks to bring under control. “It looks like they had some kind of mechanical malfunction, or something happened, that caught the chips on the conveyor belt on fire. Before anybody caught it, it spread up the conveyor belt and

into the hopper and on to the chip pile,� said Wade Smith, assistant fire chief. Firefighters had difficulty tackling the blaze because of its distance from water hydrants. Smith said crews had to lay down about 150 metres of hose, relayed through at least two pumper trucks to generate enough water pressure to fight the fire. A front-end loader was also used to spread the wood chips to break up the fire in the large wood chip piles. “They had two monitors going,� Wade said. “They were shooting over 1,000 gallons

a minute. They needed to juice it up.� Much of the heavy black smoke came from the 30-metre-long conveyor belt that caught fire. No one was injured in the mishap. Smith said the exact cause of the fire is being

dashed those hopes. The storms destroyed trees and knocked much of the nearly-ripe fruit to the ground, bruising what remained on the branches. BC Fruit Growers Association director Nirmal Dhaliwal says prices for cherries have dropped from a high of 70 cents per pound to as little as 40 cents per pound. He says that is well below the 50-cent cost growers pay to harvest the fruit. Dhaliwal says the collapse of the southern Okanagan cherry crop follows three years of bad apple prices and he believes this is the toughest blow to cherry farmers in his 22 years in the industry. He predicts most farmers will have to walk away from their crops and let them rot on the ground.

domestic spending. And the fragility of the global economic recovery has pressured the central bank to keep rates at a stimulative one per cent. Low lending rates have also encouraged

many buyers to find a home before they rise, leading to bidding wars, higher home prices and warnings that some homeowners may find it difficult to service their debts when interest rates inevitably rise.

OTTAWA - The Federal Court has ordered the Harper government to find a new arbitrator in a lingering dispute between Canada Post and its biggest union. In a decision released Wednesday, the court said arbitrator Guy Dufort’s previous work for Canada Post and history as a Conservative candidate in Quebec casts doubt on his impartiality. “In light of the unique context of labour relations and the special law, the court concludes that a reasonable and sensible person might worry that the arbitrator is biased because of these two reasons,� says a summary of the decision. Labour Minister Lisa Raitt had named Dufort to hear the case after retired judge Coulter Osborne quit the job amid concerns that he was not bilingual. Though Dufort was on a list of potential arbitrators approved by the Canadian Union of Postal

Workers, the union said they were unaware of the depth of his ties to the Conservatives and Canada Post and objected to his appointment as soon as they learned of the links. The union says Dufort’s Facebook page contained links to Conservative groups under the “activities and interests� section, and he was “friends� on the social networking site with both Raitt and Tory MP Steven Fletcher, the junior minister responsible for Canada Post. The links have since been removed. “The union has written to Lisa Raitt, asking that a mediator be appointed to facilitate the collective bargaining process instead of appointing another ‘friend’ to force a winner-takes-all final offer selection on the parties as mandated by the back-to-work legislation,� CUPW said in a statement. The government is now considering its options, and Raitt’s office had little to say on the matter. “Our government took action and passed a law to restore delivery mail to Canadians,� the minister said in a statement provided by her office. “We acted in the best interests of Canadian in doing so.�

Tribunal decision tramples private property rights

C

halk up another victory for the “human rights” industry, where hurt feelings almost always trump real rights and freedoms. In a recent case decided by the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal, the rights and freedoms sacrificed at the altar of the tribunal included the private property rights and freedom of contract of a retired couple who own and operate a bed and breakfast. In this case, the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal ruled Les and Susan Molnar, a retired couple with strong religious convictions, discriminated against two gay men by cancelling their telephone reservation for a room with a single bed at their bed and breakfast near Grand Forks. Finding that the B&B was separate from the Molnars’ personal living space and run like a commercial business and not a church, the tribunal held that the Molnars were required to comply

with the law of the province which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation. Regardless of their sincere and deeply held religious beliefs, the Molnars were ordered to pay the gay couple more than $4,500 in damages, travel expenses and lost wages to attend the tribunal hearing. No doubt the gay couple was angry about being denied a reservation; no doubt their feelings were hurt. However, my reaction – had I been in their shoes – would have been relief that the Molnars had “outed” themselves so I wouldn’t have to spend a night under their roof, or pay them any of my hardearned money. I would have wanted to boycott them just as much as they wanted to avoid me. Nevertheless, it’s troubling that the Molnars should lose their sovereignty over their property by the simple act of

CHRIS

SCHAFER Troy Media

inviting paying guests into their home. If they hold a dinner party, they are free to exclude people on whatever discriminatory grounds they choose. Why should accepting money for the use of the room change that? The Molnars have no legal obligation to provide B&B services to straight couples. They can shut the business down entirely if they wish – as indeed they have, owing to this controversy. But then why should they have any legal obligation to provide services to gay

couples? When the law imposes such an obligation, it is tantamount to giving certain favoured groups of people (in this case gays) a right to temporarily expropriate the Molnars’ property against their will. It is the presence of robust competition, not the existence of so-called human rights laws, that ensures that minorities will have access to services. Business owners may have prejudices galore – but indulging those prejudices costs money. If the Molnars won’t rent to gays, somebody else will. In fact, there are already businesses who have caught on to the idea that the gay community is an economic force to be wooed. Gay travel operators rent out entire cruise ships for all-gay cruises to the Caribbean and other choice destinations. In the end, the reality

is that the knife cuts both ways. What would a gay-or lesbian-owned B&B that caters exclusively to gay patrons do if a devout religious person wanted to book a room at their establishment? What if they wanted to share the teachings of their Bible that homosexuality is a sin with other gay patrons? What if this made the gay patrons, not to mention the gay B&B owners, uncomfortable? Under current B.C. law, the B&B owners would have to reserve a room to the religious customer and if the tribunal values consistency at all, they’d have to find for discrimination on religious grounds if a room were denied to this religious customer. I see a future human rights tribunal case in the making. Chris Schafer is the executive director of the Canadian Constitution Foundation. http://www. theCCF.ca

Handicap parking spots are for those who need them There seems to be a blatant disregard for Handicap parking in Trail. I see drivers with “N� tags parking in Handicap parking and when you ask them to move there is verbal abuse. Today (August 7, 2012) I was at the TD Bank. There were seven empty parking spots at the time I came in and five

minutes later when I’m finished my business there is a red truck with Maglio Building Supplies parked across the Handicap spot and then the rest of the truck is parked in the yellow area. There were seven still empty. I approached the owner of this truck and he claimed there were no parking spots. If there are none, find a place on the

street. Then he said he always parked there. The fellow is not handicapped physically. He has chosen to blatantly disregard those that need that spot in this town. Handicap parking should be respected by all able-bodied drivers. Vic Friesen Trail

Should churches button up on oil? An editorial from the Kamloops Daily News What, you might ask, do churches know about oil pipelines? Seldom, after all, do you hear a Sunday sermon analyzing the viscosity of bitumen or the longterm impact of triple-digit oil prices on a zero-sum economic environment. Never say never, but we’re simply suggesting it’s probably not common fare for those who preach faith in a higher being. Now, though, churches are jumping in with both feet on the Northern Gateway pipeline proposal. Delegates to a United Church of Canada general council meeting in Ottawa will debate a resolution this week opposing the controversial $6-million Enbridge project that would pipe bitumen from Alberta to the B.C. coast and on to offshore buyers. The Anglican Bishops of B.C. and Yukon are already on record as challenging the integrity of the environmental impact review on Northern Gateway. The diocese of New Westminster of the Anglican Church of Canada has

excluded Enbridge stock from its investment portfolio. A letter sent to Prime Minister Stephen Harper on behalf of 28 Presbyterian churches in the Lower Mainland accuses the feds of weakening environmental reviews and demonizing opponents of the project. There is, stated Rev. Diane Tait-Katerberg, “overwhelming evidence the government of Canada has already made up its mind about the safety of these projects, and is arranging things so that nothing stands in the way of the development of the oilsands and the approval of these pipelines.� And Kairos - an ecumenical group that includes the Anglican Church of Canada, the Christian Reformed Church in North America, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Mennonite Central committee of Canada, the Presbyterian Church in Canada and the United Church of Canada - has produced a position paper that says Northern Gateway “threatens the survival

of the First Nations whose territory it would cross.� All of which is pretty strong, unequivocal stuff. And a problem for Harper and his government, who have a strong stake in the outcome of the Enbridge debate. While Harper said as recently as this week that the project will be determined by “science, not politics,� there’s no question it fills a need to keep the economy growing. As reserves from easy-toaccess oil fields diminish and it costs more and more to get a barrel of oil out of the ground or up from the sea bottom, Canada is well positioned to become a “have� nation as a supplier. But is it worth the risk to our environment? Are there alternative routes? What are the consequences to our economy if the pipeline is rejected? The issue is not who gets to ask the questions, but whether those questions are rational and well-researched. Churches have a right, and perhaps an obligation, to take a thoughtful position on the issue as much as any other group or individual does

Charest shouldn’t flinch on student boycott An editorial from the Hamilton Spectator If you believe the pundits pontificating on the Quebec election, Premier Jean Charest is in trouble and will have great difficulty trying to secure a fourth consecutive mandate. Indeed, after nearly a decade in government for the Liberals, it appears most Quebecers think it’s time for a change, at least according to all recent public opinion sampling. But be that as it may, Charest is still making more sense than his competitors, at least on the subject of Quebec’s infamous student “strike,� which now enters a pivotal time with classes scheduled to return in midAugust. He wants students to return to class, and points out that the actions of protesters so far have not been a strike at all, but are better described as a boycott. He’s right. Students are not unionized employees who have the responsibility and option of using labour stoppage as a tool

in the employer-employee relationship. Certainly, student protesters who want to continue expressing their displeasure with the Charest government’s handling of the ongoing dispute, and with the government’s policies overall, have the absolute right to stay away from class, and to protest peacefully and legally. But by doing so, they also accept the consequences of their actions - academic, financial and legal. They do not have the right to threaten, intimidate and even physically disrupt classes, preventing students who don’t share their position from getting the benefit of an education they are paying for. Those actions have already given rise to Bill 78, which suspended the school year and pushed the end of the spring semester back to AugustSeptember. It also set extremely stiff fines - as high as $125,000 for groups and individuals who

block schools with picket lines or who fail to provide police with an itinerary for street protests. Is the law heavy-handed, even draconian? Possibly. But it is also appropriate given the antics of protesters who picketed schools and broke up classes in some cases. The legal rights of all students need to be protected, including and especially those who want to complete their education. While its strategy may be flawed in part, the Charest government is at least on the side of common sense and the law. That’s more than can be said for the Parti Quebecois, which is campaigning in support of the student boycott. The Charest government may indeed be coming to the end of its days, but it is right to stick to its guns on the student boycott, even though militant student organizations have pledged to campaign against the government. Let’s hope Jean Charest doesn’t flinch.

PEOPLE COOLING OFF

Nelson woman traces roots back to Mayflower BY GREG NESTEROFF Nelson Star

Nelson’s Harriet Christie, who turns 100 next week, comes from a remarkable family. Her ancestors include Dr. Stephen Hopkins, governor of Rhode Island and signatory to the US Declaration of Independence; Edith Page Harrison, a prominent suffragette who married a descendent of American president Benjamin Harrison; and passengers on the Mayflower. But Harriet’s own story is also remarkable. Born August 16, 1912 in Peace Dale, Rhode Island, she was the third of Chester and Mary Elizabeth Page’s seven children. Her father was a successful owner/operator of woolen mills, and she enjoyed a privileged upbringing. When she was 12, her family was displaced by the creation of the Scituate reservoir; somehow they ended up in the Oregonian capital of Salem, where her father rebuilt his business and became one of the city’s leading citizens. Harriet graduated high school there with honours in 1929, having skipped a grade. Although it was the start of the Great Depression, she had her own car and was working as a secretary when she met husband-to-be Frederick Christie. He was a West Kootenay native, born in Trout Lake City, who ran away from home at 15 to fulfill his fantasy of becoming a sailor. “By the time he got to the Panama Canal,” says daughter Carole, “he found it wasn’t such a dream vocation.” Fred jumped ship at Seattle and came to Salem, where he had

grandparents. He was a chef when he met Harriet — but her parents didn’t think much of him. “No way their daughter was marrying a Canadian,” Carole says. “They thought of Canada as a place of dogsleds.” Eleven days after Harriet’s 20th birthday, she and Fred eloped to Vancouver, Wash. — far enough away that her parents wouldn’t find out. Upon returning home, she kept the marriage a secret. “She was still scared,” Carole says. “My aunt remembers mom would always say she was going to the bathroom and then sneak out the back window.” Once Harriet was well along with first daughter Julie, the jig was up — although Carole doesn’t think her father and grandparents ever reconciled. In 1934, Harriet and Fred came to Creston, where his parents lived. Harriet was excited. “She thought it was going to be an adventure,” Carole says. “I’m sure she’d never seen a wood stove.” Fred became a forest ranger and the family moved around the Kootenays, including New Denver, Slocan, Marysville, and Parsons. They finally retired to Salmo before Fred died in 1996, after 64 years of marriage. Asked the secret to Harriet’s longevity, Carole notes her mother knew more about nutrition than most, and “watched her diet like a hawk.” When boiling vegetables, she’d save the water to drink. Her peak weight was about 95 lbs. — her children were all bigger than her by the time they were ten.

JUDITH CRIST

Film critic known for her harsh reviews THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Judith Crist, a blunt and popular film critic for the “Today” show, TV Guide and the New York Herald Tribune whose reviews were at times so harsh that director Otto Preminger labeled her “Judas Crist,” has died. She was 90. Her son, Steven Crist, said his mother died Tuesday at her Manhattan home after a long illness. Starting in 1963, at the Tribune, Crist wrote about and discussed thousands of movies for millions of readers and viewers, and also covered theatre and books. She was the first woman to become a full-time critic at a major U.S. newspaper and was among the first reviewers of her time to gain a national following. Roger Ebert credited her with helping to make all film critics better known, including such contemporaries as The New Yorker’s Pauline Kael and Andrew Sarris of the Village Voice. With the growing recognition of such foreign direc-

tors as Francois Truffaut and Federico Fellini, and the rise of such American filmmakers as Robert Altman and Martin Scorsese, the 1960s and 1970s were an inspiring time for reviewers. Crist duly celebrated many movies, but her trademark quickly became the putdown. An early review was for “Spencer’s Mountain,” a sentimental family melodrama starring Henry Fonda and Maureen O’Hara. Unmoved by a story that became the basis for the TV series “The Waltons,” Crist denounced the film’s “sheer prurience and perverted morality” and cracked that “it makes the nudie shows at the Rialto look like Walt Disney productions.” The critic really poured it on for “Cleopatra,” the budget-busting historical epic that starred Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton and was overwhelmed by the actors’ off-screen love affair. “At best a major disappointment, at worst an extravagant exercise in tedium,” Crist called the

film, dismissing Taylor as “an entirely physical creature, no depth of emotion apparent in her kohl-laden eyes, no modulation in her voice, which too often rises to fishwife levels.” Her conclusion: “The mountain of notoriety has produced a mouse.” Crist was occasionally banned from advance screenings, while studios and theatres would threaten to pull advertising. When her “Cleopatra” review brought her a prize from the New York Newspaper Women’s Club, officials at 20th Century Fox, which released the movie, withdrew from the ceremony. Preminger, whose “Hurry Sundown” she called the “worst film” she had seen in memory, referred to her as “Judas Crist.” After she condemned Billy Wilder’s crossdressing classic “Some Like It Hot” for its “perverse” gags and “homosexual ‘in’ joke(s),” Wilder allegedly remarked that asking her to review your movie was like “asking the Boston strangler to massage your neck.”

But Crist had many friends in the business, from Bette Davis to “Cleopatra” director Joseph Mankiewicz. She ran a film festival for decades out of suburban Tarrytown, N.Y., with guests including Robert Redford, Paul Newman and Steven Spielberg. Woody Allen liked her well enough to give her a cameo in his 1980 drama “Stardust Memories,” widely believed to have been based in part on Crist’s Tarrytown gatherings. Crist reviewed film and theatre for the “Today” show from 1964-73, and as a print critic worked for New York magazine, TV Guide and the New York Post. She was a longtime adjunct professor at Columbia and her essays, interviews and reviews have been compiled into three books: “The Private Eye, The Cowboy and the Very Naked Girl,” ”Judith Crist’s TV Guide to the Movies“ and ”Take 22: Moviemakers on Moviemaking.“ Crist’s husband, public relations consultant William B. Crist, died in 1993.

LITTLE LEAGUE

The fine art of cast shooting

Hastings continues pastings

BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

Bev Pinney took dead aim at the Washington State cast bullet championship last month and claimed yet another shooting title. Pinney shot a 392 at the 200-yard range and a perfect score of 400 at the 100-yard distance to best sharp shooters from B.C., Oregon and Washington. The 80-year-old Salmo resident hit a three-quarterinch bulls eye 40 times for the perfect round at the tournament near Seattle. “Not very often I get a perfect score. A lot of people will go through their whole lives and never shoot above 395, never even get over 390 . . . for a cast bullet, that’s pretty amazing,” said Pinney. Pinney captured the title in the plain-base category, named for the type of bullet used in the event. Plain base bullets date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. The bullets are hand-made, a combination of 30-parts lead and one-part tin, molded in a cast. The distance and trajectory are different than the modern bullet, but homemade fare is an intrinsic element to cast bullet shooting. “You make them yourself – now that’s an art in itself. It’s something you have to get used to . . . but you must make them yourself in order for them to work well.” Pinney uses a bolt action, 30-30X32 short Musgrave rifle with a Leupold 45 scope that he’s adapted to accommodate the plain base bullet, which travels slower and is therefore less accurate than a gas-check bullet. “They can drive that (a gas-

Bev Pinney of Salmo recently won the Washington State championship in the plain base category of shooting by being perfect in the 100-yard distance. check bullet) at 2,200 feet per second which is a great advantage at 200 yards because the bullet doesn’t vary as much for the wind,” explained Pinney. To level the playing field, Pinney makes his plain bullets slightly heavier - 230 grain - to offset the affects of the wind. “That’s the other aspect, you must be able to read the wind.” Pinney uses a flag placed about 60-yards down the course to judge the speed of the wind and alter his sights, but the real secret is simply waiting for the lull, he says. Pinney started shooting at age nine and hasn’t put down

the rifle since. He keeps his keen eye and steady hand by shooting at the Nelson Rod and Gun Club almost every day. The Salmo sharpshooter has won the U.S. National championships plain-base category four times, the overall national championship once, numerous state championships and was a member of the Canadian National smallbore rifle team for nine years. Arguably the best plainbase marksman in North America, after 71 years of shooting he maintains his consistency through his dedication to the sport.

“How do we do anything well? You’re doing it all the time, you get so it’s a part of you, and you think about how you can better this and better that. “Practice I think is very important because you have to prove to yourself that you can do it. And once you prove to yourself that you can do it, when you go to the match, you know that you can do this if I apply myself.” Like any art, application is key. Pinney encourages anyone to try a hand at cast bullet shooting by joining the Nelson Rod and Gun Club.

At the Canadian Little League baseball championship in Edmonton, B.C.’s champion from Hastings breezed through the round-robin portion of the tournament going undefeated in its first five games. Save for one loss against White Rock at the B.C. championship in Trail last month, the team from Vancouver-Burnaby has devastated opponents and continues its merciless pace at the nationals, outscoring teams 58-1, good enough for first seed as they get set to start playoffs on Friday. Hastings faced possibly its toughest opponent, Ontario’s High Park Braves, to open the tournament on Saturday, but a stellar three-hitter by Ataru Yamaguchi paced the B.C. squad to a 3-0 shutout win. Steve Moretto led Hastings to victory on Sunday with a 12-0 shellacking of Quebec. Moretto hit a home run, went 2-for-3 with two RBIs, and closed out the game on the mound. Moretto leads all hitters with 10 RBIs and three home runs, and is fifth in average hitting .526. The team faced Glace Bay, the representative from the Atlantic, in its third match winning 19-1 but giving up the only run scored against them in the tournament. The hitting machine continued to roll as it bombed host Edmonton, Mill Woods White Sox 9-0. Cole Dalla-Zanna went 3-for-4 for Hastings and Carson Ho was 2-for-3 with a home run. Dalla-Zana is hitting a torrid .643, best in the tournament so far. In its final match of the round robin on Wednesday, the B.C. team put an exclamation mark on its run to the playoff with a 15-0 pasting of the Prairie representative from Lethbridge. Yamaguchi had a 3-for-4 game, driving in three, while Dalla Zana picked up the win. Both Yamaguchi and Dalla-Zana lead all pitchers with 2-0 records. Team B.C. plays fourth seed on Friday with the winner advancing to Saturday’s final. The final four seeds are still up in the air, as Atlantic Glace Bay and Ontario race for the second seed with identical 2-2 records, while Quebec 1-3 plays Host Edmonton 1-3 Wednesday night. When the round is over three teams including Prairie will have identical 2-3 records, with runs for-and-against deciding the third and fourth seeds.

Ministry trolling photographs for synopsis cover VICTORIA - Shutterbugs with a taste for outdoor adventure will have the opportunity to see their work on the cover of the 2013-2015 Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis, through a photo contest announced by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. The Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis is published every two years, and contains all sport fishing regulations in effect in freshwater in British Columbia,

and is the go-to sourcebook for anglers throughout the province. The ministry is also seeking photos for a similar contest for the 2014-2016 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Synopsis. The Hunting and Trapping Synopsis is a summary of the B.C. hunting and trapping regulations made under the Wildlife Act, prepared for the convenience of hunters and trappers. Photographs must be emailed to syn-

opsiscoverphoto@gov.bc.ca by Oct. 1, for the Fishing Synopsis and by Oct. 1, 2013 for the Hunting and Trapping Synopsis in order to be considered. Each publication year, 450,000 copies of the Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis and 250,000 copies of the Hunting and Trapping Synopsis Regulations are distributed to outdoor recreation shops throughout B.C. Both documents are published in two year intervals, but this is the

first time that a contest has been held to determine what photo will appear on the cover. Photos have to be relevant to hunting, fishing or trapping in British Columbia, and there is no limit to the number of submissions that can be made. Full contest rules can be found in the attached backgrounder, or online. Complete contest rules can be found at http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/fw/photo.html

Canada’s Adam van Koeverden kayaks to silver as he paddles beside bronze medalist Max Hoff of Germany in the men’s 1000-metre Kayak single (K1) final at Eton Dorney during the 2012 Summer Olympics on Wednesday.

Kayaker wins silver Huynh, Oldershaw deliver bronze for Canada THE CANADIAN PRESS LONDON - Carol Huynh and Adam van Koeverden returned to the Olympic podium Wednesday while Mark Oldershaw delivered his famous family its first medal in 64 years and eight Olympics. Van Koeverden raced to silver in men’s kayaking while Oldershaw followed about 15 minutes later with a bronze in canoeing. Later in the day, Huynh captured bronze in women’s wrestling. The medals boosted Canada’s total at the London Games to 14 - one gold, four silver, nine bronze, just four shy of what the country managed in Beijing. Winning medals on the same day at the same venue was special for van Koeverden and Oldershaw. The pair have trained together out of the Burloak Canoe Club in Oakville, Ont., since they were teenagers. “Oh man, I’m happy for him,” van Koeverden said of Oldershaw. For van Koeverden, it was his fourth Olympic medal. He won gold and bronze at the Athens Games in 2004 and a silver in Beijing four years ago. After setting the pace with a blazing start in the men’s K-1 1,000-metre final, van

Koeverden lost gold to friend and longtime training partner Eirik Veras Larsen of Norway in the final stretch. “I started the way I wanted to,” said van Koeverden, a native of Oakville, Ont. “I was supercomfortable. Going through the 500 I had tons of energy. It’s not a case of a screwed-up race plan, this is a case of one guy in the whole world being better than me. And I can live with that. “Seven billion people, one guy’s better. It’s OK.” Oldershaw, who comes from a family of Olympic paddlers, was a full second out of fourth place with 250 metres remaining in the C-1 1,000 but powered his way onto the podium. What made it extra special for the third-generation Olympian was that almost his entire family was at Dorney Lake to share his joy. “My mom, my dad, my sister, my girlfriend, cousins, uncles, aunts. Everyone is here,” the Burlington, Ont., native said, before breaking off to give his mother, Connie, a big hug. “I’m so happy to be a Canadian and to be an Oldershaw. To represent both is a great feeling.” Huynh made it a three-medal day for Canada when she beat Isabelle Sambou of Senegal to finish third in the 48-kilogram category. Huynh, who grew up in Hazelton, B.C., but now lives in Calgary, won gold at the 2008 Games but missed out on

a chance to defend her crown when she lost to Japan’s Hitomi Obara in the semifinals. Martine Dugrenier of Laval, Que., had a chance to add a second wrestling podium finish, but she lost to Battsetseg Soronzonbold in the bronzemedal bout of the 63-kilogram division. Elsewhere, Damian Warner of London, Ont., sits third halfway through the men’s decathlon. The final five events go Thursday. It was a good morning on the track as Cam Levins of Black Creek, B.C., advanced to the semifinals in the men’s 5,000-metres while Jessica Smith of North Vancouver, B.C., moved on in the women’s 800. Levins built off his impressive 11th-place finish in the 10,000 metres earlier in the Games and set a personal-best time 13 minutes 18.29 seconds to advance out of the heats. “I’m glad to have made it through,” said Levins. “I was more confident in the 5K than the 10K. I knew I just needed to get to the last lap and go.” Smith advanced by finishing second in her heat. It was a slow group and came down to a sprint for the finish. Montreal’s Meaghan Benfeito and Roseline Filion of Laval, Que., who combined to win bronze in women’s 10-metre platform synchronized diving, both qualified for the semifinal of the individual event.

WOMEN’S OLYMPIC SOCCER

Canada escapes ruling for now THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON - FIFA says it needs more time to investigate “incidents that occurred” following Canada’s 4-3 semifinals loss against the United States in the Olympic women’s soccer tournament. FIFA says its disciplinary panel cannot prosecute the case before Canada plays for the bronze medal against France Thursday. It says that “in view of the elements currently at its disposal, the FIFA disciplinary committee considers that further investigation will be needed regarding incidents that occurred” after

the match. Canada conceded the winning goal in stoppage time at the end of extra time in a thrilling match at Old Trafford on Monday. Canada’s players and coach were angered by the Norwegian referee awarding a free kick that led to the Americans’ 80th-minute equalizer. The Canadian Soccer Association says it supports FIFA’s investigation and will ”co-operate fully.“ “We will work closely with FIFA to ensure a prompt and fair resolution in this matter,” CSA president Victor Montagliani said in a release.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III has a simple message for the Americans trying to earn one of the eights automatic spots on his team this week at the PGA Championship. Relax. He knows from experience it’s not that simple. Phil Mickelson, who has qualified for every Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup team since 1995, has fallen to No. 8 in the standings and has a tenuous lead - the equivalent of $40,690 - over Hunter Mahan at No. 9. A little further back are Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk and Rickie Fowler. Because the points are double at major championship, even Matt Every at No. 37 in the standings has a mathematical chance to earn a spot in the Ryder Cup. “I know there’s several guys that are working really hard to try to make the team,” Love said Wednesday. “So hopefully, they will relax and just play the PGA this week and work their way in.” Love tipped his hand at a couple of players that would seem to be safe. He was surprised to find out that Mahan, one of only four players to have won at least twice on the PGA Tour this year, was not among the top eight. And even though Furyk made double bogey on the final hole to lose at Firestone last week, he

noted that the former U.S. Open champion “is playing very well week in and week out now.” As for Stricker? “I’ve said several times, we’ll be plugging holes, matching pairings, things like that,” Love said. “Obviously, if Steve Stricker was on the outside, we have a guy that likes to play with him. That’s a lock.” That would be Tiger Woods, who teamed with Stricker for a 2-1 record in the last Ryder Cup. European captain Jose Maria Olazabal still has time. The cutoff for 10 players who make the team - five from a European Tour money list and five from a points based on world ranking points they have earned - is not for three weeks until after the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles. But the European captain made one thing clear - Padraig

Harrington better pick up the pace. Harrington, a threetime major champion from Ireland, has been on every Ryder Cup team since 1999. But he has not won since the Johor Open at the end of 2010. Harrington has shown some improvement in recent weeks, and two of his five top 10s this year have come in the majors - a tie for eighth at the Masters, a tie for fourth at the U.S. Open. That might not be good enough. “Padraig, he has to do really extraordinary,” Olazabal said. “He’s well down the list. He will have to really do extraordinary well here. We’ve known Padraig; he’s a very methodical player. He really works hard at it. I’ve played with him a couple of times during this year. From tee to green, his game has been fairly good, but I think his putting has let him down this year so far.

Columbia brewmaster keeps the suds flowing BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Creston Valley Advance

Scott Stokes was on track to become a medical student at Thompson Rivers University when another line of work began brewing in his mind. The biology major had a summer co-op job at Columbia Brewery and began thinking that a career in brewing might not be a bad idea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I began to wonder if I really wanted to go to school for another four years after I got my degree,â&#x20AC;? he says. He earned his science degree in 2002 and went to work for a microbrewery in Kamloops, only an hourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive from his hometown of Sorrento.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned a lot about brewing in that job,â&#x20AC;? Stokes says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And also that making beer by hand is a lot of hard work. Shoveling hot mash on a hot summer day isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fun.â&#x20AC;? When a position to work under thenbrewmaster Graham Kendall at Columbia Brewing came up in 2004 he jumped at the opportunity and began working his way up the ranks. Three years later, he accepted a transfer to work as Kendallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant in Halifaxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alexander Keithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brewery, one of six Labatt breweries in Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We (he and his wife, Leanne) had sold our house and were

36 hours from flying to Halifax to look for a house when I was asked to become the brewmaster here,â&#x20AC;? he recalls. He and Leanne scrambled to find accommodation in what was then a hot housing market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Becoming a brewmaster was my goal, anyway, so I was happy to stay here,â&#x20AC;? he says. During his years in Creston, Stokes has earned a brewmasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diploma by taking courses, many by correspondence, and on the job training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worked out pretty well,â&#x20AC;? he smiles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody ever told me when I was young that you could earn a good

living making beer. But now, with craft breweries popping up all over, there are more and more people doing just that.â&#x20AC;? In a job that he describes as â&#x20AC;&#x153;50 per cent science and 50 per cent taste,â&#x20AC;? Stokes shoulders large responsibilities and is on call 24/7 if anything goes wrong in the brewing process. And, with Columbia Brewery producing 15 different kinds of beer (Kokanee, Kokanee Gold, Kokanee Light, Keithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IPA, Keithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Red Amber Ale, Bud Light, Busch, Lucky, Wildcat Strong, Winchester Draught, Labatt Blue, Labatt Lite, Labatt Genuine, Kootenay True Ale and Brava),

there is plenty that can go wrong. At peak production, the brewery rolls out up to 1.5 million cans of beer a day, in addition to 225,000 bottles a shift, plus kegs. Each of the beers has its own distinct recipe and each recipe has to be adjusted according to the size of batch that is being made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are about seventeen different batches going in the brewhouse, nine in fermenting tanks and as many as seventeen more in the filter room â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something to tweak.â&#x20AC;? While the recipe is key, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the manual tweaks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; minor adjustments to ingredi-

ent measurements or a host of other variables â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that keep each beerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flavour consistent. Two years ago, Stokes took on a huge challenge when Creston was designated to be the first ever brewery outside of Halifax to brew Alexander Keithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beer. Logistics â&#x20AC;&#x201D; transporting ingredients and packaging, and shipping the finished product to market â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are incredibly expensive in the brewing business and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more cost-effective to have beer made in two or more breweries than to make it in a single location. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a really good learning experience for me,â&#x20AC;? he says.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was challenging and we were under very high pressure to meet the standards â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it has to taste exactly the same as the ones made in Halifax. And we had orders coming in before we were actually ready to go.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned to question assumptions.â&#x20AC;? Malt and other ingredients can be slightly different than the ones used in Halifax and the difference in water and even elevation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;boiling at 600 metres compared to sea level makes a differenceâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; mean that the recipe can vary significantly in each location and matching the taste is largely a matter of trial and error for the first while. Stokes and the Columbia Brewery management team have been working recently to add yet another label to the mix. They are hoping to get approval from corporate headquarters to begin making the necessary capital improvements to produce Budweiser, one of the most popular beers in the U.S. Its recipe includes up to 30 per cent rice in addition to hops and barley malt and its brewing time is about four times longer than other Columbia Brewery products, so Stokes could soon have another steep learning curve ahead of him.

Husband should unfriend young Facebook friends Dear Annie: Recently, my husband and I chaperoned a seven-day office-sponsored trip for high school sophomores and juniors. My husband, who is in his 50s, is very outgoing. While on the trip, he developed quite a following among the teens, especially the girls, many of whom developed a little crush on him. I brought up the possibility that these girls would want to friend him on Facebook, and we both agreed it would not be a good idea. Now that we are home, however, he has, in fact, friended several of the kids, mostly girls. I do not have a good feeling about this, especially when so many innocent actions could be interpreted as criminal acts. My husband has worked hard to move up the ladder at his company, and I worry that he might be jeopardizing his career. I have asked that he block these kids, but he

says it’s no big deal and I’m overreacting. He says he wants to watch them grow up. I have explained my reservations, saying these kids are not his peers, and as the adult, he needs to be more responsible. My husband and his friends share a risque sense of humor, and who knows what would happen if these kids saw those comments? While it’s OK that he has friended our children’s friends (who are a bit older), I don’t think it’s appropriate to do so with children who have no ties to us. I fear this foolishness will cause problems. I don’t want teenagers stalking us. I don’t want them to see

photographs of us on our children’s Facebook pages that may not be appropriate for these teens. Am I being oversensitive or not? -To Be or Not To Be Overreacting Dear To Be: We understand your trepidation, although you are expecting a worstcase scenario that may not happen. However, when your husband agreed not to friend these kids, he should have kept his word, and now he needs to back away. Make sure he confines their access so they are not privy to anything personal or inappropriate while he gradually unfriends them. And we recommend you keep an eye on things to be sure no lines are crossed. You seem to have a better grasp of the pitfalls than your husband. Dear Annie: I am a widow in my late 60s. Four years ago, I moved to be closer to my children and grand-

children, and it’s been wonderful. Recently, I reconnected with an old boyfriend, and we have fallen in love. We want to spend what time we have left together. The problem is, I would have to move to his home, which is three hours away. I’m already experiencing tears and hard feelings from my family. The adults I can deal with, but what do I tell my little grandchildren who say, “We had you first, Gram”? How do I make them understand that my love for them will never change and that we can still visit? -- Sad Gram Dear Gram: It’s sweet that your family will miss you so much, but the only way to make the children understand is to let them live through the experience. You are only three hours away. When they see how often you visit, call, write, email, Skype, whatever, they will be able to accept your new

circumstances more easily. Dear Annie: I have a solution for “Maria in Ohio,” who asked how to word wedding invitations when the parents are divorced and remarried to others. This is how our family

now handles things: “Together with their parents, Bride Jane’s name and Groom Joe’s name invite you to share in their joy as they exchange wedding vows,” followed by the date, time and location.

This is the format, no matter who is paying for the event or how much, and it doesn’t matter how many parents or stepparents are involved. (When did life get so complicated?) -- B.S.

LEISURE

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Friday, Aug. 10, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a poor day to make important decisions. It’s easy to deceive yourself or go with what you want to be the truth rather than what actually is. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is not an ideal day to part with your hard-earned money. If shopping, keep your receipts. Think twice before you make major expenditures. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You are in a dreamy but perhaps confused mood today. This means it’s not a good day to make promises to others or to agree to anything important. (Do yourself this favor.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don’t worry if you have feelings of doubt or second thoughts about yourself today. It’s just passing influence. A lot of people feel this

way today, which means it’s a poor day to make important decisions. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You like to think the best of your friends. (It’s what Leos do.) Nevertheless, don’t go overboard idealizing someone today, because you could be kidding yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be extra clear in all your communications with bosses, parents, teachers and authority figures. It’s very easy to have a misunderstanding or make a wrong assumption. Things might not be as they appear. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Don’t let yourself fall under the sway of someone who is coming on like a cult teacher or a really sharp salesman. It’s almost as if you want to believe someone today, isn’t it? (Be careful.)

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Postpone important decisions about inheritances, shared property, insurance matters and anything you own jointly with others. Things are too confusing today! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Double-check important communications with others today, because people (including you) can fall prey

to wishful thinking. Make sure you know what others want before you act. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Just attend to your routine work in your job today. Don’t initiate bright, new ideas. Don’t volunteer for anything. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a wonderful, creative day for you especially if you’re involved in artistic

projects simply because you easily can think outside the box. In addition, your imagination is super heightened. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Feelings of tenderness and sympathy to a family member will arise today, but do you really have all the facts? Make sure you know what is really going on. YOU BORN TODAY You’re a natural performer with a seductive voice who is fun-

The reasons and benefits of ethanol in our fuel

Y

ou may or may not have noticed but gasoline in our country is now blended with ethanol. If you look closely at the pumps most are now displaying a sticker claiming the fuel is blended with up to ten percent ethanol. Do you care? Should you care? Why ethanol? The 1990s started the desire to oxygenate gasoline. Concern about ground level ozone and carbon monoxide from vehicles was increasing particularly in big cities. It was known that certain gasoline additives (ones with lots of free oxygen molecules) would oxygenate fuel and make it burn cleaner thus reducing air pollution from vehicles. Oxygenated gasoline or as it was designated in the United States, reformulated gasoline was legislated as a must in certain large cities under the 1990 Clean

Air Act. required in large polGradually this luted centres but a requirement spread new oxygenate was throughout the counrequired. Ethanol try. was identified as just The additive and that oxygenate.

ties of ethanol will cause trouble with gasoline fueled equipment that is not used regularly or goes into storage like boats, lawn mowers, weed whackers , snow mobiles, quads etc. For this type of equipment the use of a fuel stabilizer becomes more important to deal with the extra water that is held in the fuel. You also may or may not have noticed that your vehicle does not get the fuel economy it used to. The addition of ethanol to fuel reduces its energy content by volume. Real world testing shows a 3 per cent reduction in fuel economy with E10 gasoline. I guess a greener atmosphere always costs the consumer more.

date came down from in Federal Government September 1, 2010. As with many mandates there are many questions as to the benefits of ethanol. That is a much bigger topic. For the time being you the consumer must learn to live with our current ethanol blended fuels. Is your vehicle compatible with E10 fuels? Most likely but it will say so in your owners manual. Ethanol is a strong solvent and also an absorber of water. It therefore requires different fuel system materials. It would eat away certain plastics and rubbers as well as having poor lubricating properties. Most vehicles have fuel system materials that are happy with ethanol but if you have very old vehicles (1970s and older) they may need some fuel system upgrades. The water absorption proper-
