Alliance Church aims to end the silence


New well nears reality as digging set to commence BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff


The Trail Alliance Church is marching to the beat of its own drum and is looking to fill the silence created by the cancellation of school music programs. And a former high school music teacher from J. L. Crowe is rallying to help the church in its endeavour by building a band program for lowincome students. “Hockey and dance classes are too expensive for some people,” said Terry Moon, now facilities administrator at the Alliance Church. “The programs we’re offering are going to be for everybody, but we are definitely trying to target low-income youth.” Moon said it was hoped the program would put music back in the area’s schools for concerts, rallies, graduation ceremonies, as well as to support community events such as parades and the Music in the Park series. “The high schools aren’t going to offer a music program anymore,” Moon said. “But with the help of a retired high school teacher from the area, we’re hoping to teach at a level of competency so that students can receive high school credits.”

City takes umbrage over Fortis move BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

Still waters are running deeper after a FortisBC announcement of a new $16 million West Kootenay Operations Centre in Ootischenia made waves in Trail City council. Council met with FortisBC officials Monday at City Hall on the matter to indicate their unhappiness on the process and not involve and inform communities like Trail as they went along and made the decision to choose Ootischenia. Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs said the company made the announcement over one week ago during Castlegar’s regular city council meeting, a move that caught them by surprise. “However, we were particularly unhappy with the process of not involving, informing council, and possibly even giving us an opportunity to put something on the table,” he said. “We never had any knowledge of this (move). We think this is totally

Esplanade City land ‘up for grabs’ BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

The City could be offering all or part of its riverfront properties along the Esplanade to private interests in the hope of “leveraging potential opportunities,” says one City councillor. Kevin Jolly said given the City has now assembled a “considerable” amount of land in the waterfront area the most appropriate approach would be to publicly offer the land to the private sector as part of asking for a comprehensive development proposal—or proposals—from interested parties. “The hope is that if there is private sector interest that the City would be able to negotiate an agreement that is in the best interests of the City, and would ideally provide for the highest and best use of that property,” he told council Monday night. Under the Trail Downtown Plan, the land has been identified as mixed use involving commercial, residential and public space. Further information will be forthcoming as the proposal is developed, said Jolly. inappropriate.” Although FortisBC “got the message” from council, Bogs was not optimistic anything could be done to persuade them to consider the Greater Trail region for

Ground will break at the end of August on a new water well for Montrose, says the village’s chief administrative officer. Kevin Chartres said on Aug. 27 Robbins Drilling will commence on a month-long project to drill a new well to provide a new, potable source of water for the village. More than one year ago, the Village of Montrose issued a boil water advisory because test results indicated low levels of total coliforms, a verdict that sentenced residents with water that did not meet the BC Drinking Water Protection Regulation. Although health officers have urged the village council to order regular water quality tests, the costs have become somewhat of a financial burden and have not been conducted as frequently as was intimated. In 2011 the Village of Montrose spent roughly $17,000 on water tests to prepare for the new well and a chlorination facility in the area. But there’s some good news. According to Chartres, the design phase of the chlorination and pump-house facility project is nearing completion. He expected the design portion of the project to be completed in September and construction to commence in October. “I’d like to see this project wrapped up before winter arrives,” he said. Commissioning of the facility is slated for the end of April 2013. Previously, a $1.3-million Gas Tax Fund grant was bestowed on Montrose for water quality upgrades that included the creation of a chlorination facility and replacement of the failing well. The grant was earmarked for construction of the new well and a pump house. Features of the new well and chlorination facility include a flow meter and state of the art communications.

The Urquhart family recently moved their shop from their home in the Pend d’Oreille into the downtown core. Their goal is to encourage more foot traffic. On Saturday the

BIZ BUZZ By Breanne Massey grand opening sale at 1281 Bay Ave. will feature Sako and Baretta shotguns, Benelli semi automatic firearms, Jikka rifles and much more. “We’re opening at 9 a.m. and it’s limited to quantity,� said John Urquhart Jr. “So it’s limited to first come, first serve.� But what’s new

only starts with the renovated store front. Valley Firearms has broadened its horizon by stocking fishing and camping supplies, dried foods and hiking boots. “Next year we’ll probably get into tents,� Uruqhart said. “Who knows where we’ll go next? We purchased this building with the intent that we could use upstairs to double in size if we need to. “It just depends on

what customers feel they need in the area and we can expand and go that way.� The Urquharts are looking for customer feedback to see which way to gear the new storefront, and to which demographic. Urquhart said the fairer sex is “the fastest growing demographic in all of the hunting and shooting sports.� And there are a variety of reasons why people get into it, he noted.

“For some it’s a new challenge, some it’s for a safe food alternative to get organic free range, and you can’t get any better than that,� Uruqhart said. “People want to know where the food on their tables is coming from.� The store will be open weekly from Tuesday to Saturday between 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information call 250-364-2242 or 1-866-785-2246.

The new facility means a $1.3 million reduction in infrastructure costs that would have otherwise been borne by Montrose village taxpayers, cleaner water that eliminates health risks and the boil water advisory, and a sustainable water supply. In addition, an on-site generator will provide back-up power to the wells during power outages.

Boat capsizes during army exercises BY CRAIG LINDSAY Castlegar News

A bridging boat foundered on Tuesday during exercises near Syringa Provincial Park forcing the two soldiers on board to flee. Major Dan Thomas of the Canadian Forces said one of three bridging boats involved in moving a pontoon bridge on Lower Arrow Lakes started taking on water which settled by the stern. “The two soldiers on board stayed on board as long as they could then had to bail out and were picked up very quickly by a safety boat,” he said. Major Thomas said another bridging boat tied onto the sinking boat and towed it to the shore at Syringa Provincial Park. “A containment boom was immediately deployed because we carry spill response equipment with us wherever we go,” Maj. Thomas said. “Additional spill response equipment was brought

up from Trail. At this point there’s been very limited loss of any fluid.” As of Tuesday afternoon, the boat was still in the water awaiting a crane to pull it out. “We have called in professional environmental emergency response people with a crane,” said Maj. Thomas. He said the bridging boat used vegetable oil for hydraulic fuel and was biodegradable, as was the antifreeze. “They are propelled by low sulphur diesel but immediately we were paying attention to any kind of leakage,” Maj. Thomas said. There were some minor spots yesterday that quickly dispersed and there’s been to further leakage since then. The boats are part of Kootenay Castor, a joint training exercise between the Canadian Army and the Washington Army National Guard.

Band program puts out call for instrument donations FROM PAGE 1 Although the teacher could not be reached to verify the release of her name, the church was eager to ramp up the programs. But the church needs instruments to make its dream come true. Moon said they are looking for anyone with instruments around their house that they are no longer using and could consider donating to the program. “We would also gratefully accept dona-

tions big and small to go towards instruments and equipment for our kids,” he said. The Maple Leaf Band and SwingSations have volunteered to aid the needs of the student band program this fall with some mentoring and instruction. The program would run twice a week after school with additional social events like a coffee house. There will be a starter band for any who have never played an

There are a number of other things happening at the AMP including: • An adult drop in on Tuesday afternoons from 1-4 pm. Coffee, games, friendship and occasional workshop included. • Vacation Bible School for children aged Kindergarten to Grade 6. • ESL program starting in September and available twice a week through CBAL. • The Chinese Alliance Church • A coffee house starting as soon as equipment can be secured and installed. • A day care is also in the development stages.

church has secured a new building in Glenmerry. The former Kingdom Hall on Laburnum Drive has been taken over by the

church and has been renamed, the AMP (the Alliance Meeting Place). “Our desire is to provide a place where

people can meet and be welcomed in,” Moon said. “Once we got the building all of these opportunities opened up.” Moon is working closely with the church to secure the correct permits to open up a coffee shop element, in an attempt to offer “street kids” somewhere safe to go. If you can help with the program or would like more information, contact Terry Moon at 250-368-9516.

Since FortisBC is a utility corporation they will still need to gain approval from the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC), and be further required to hold a public open house (in Castlegar on Aug. 29). The property that FortisBC is looking at for the operations centre is in Ootischenia and was originally acquired as a prospective site of the new West Kootenay Regional Hospital. However, Bogs said a conversation with an Interior Health Authority official after the announcement solidified the future of Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail. “I suspect the hospital will be here for a long, long time from my perspective,” he said. Two years ago FortisBC had been in conversation with the City of Trail over moving its regional operations centre. At that time the number of jobs being moved was 60. The new centre is expected to house approximately 160 to 180 jobs, including the existing jobs that will transfer over from the existing Castlegar facility. “It is a completely different operation now,” he said. There was some speculation amongst local politicians that jobs could be pulled from the surrounding region to reside in the new Castlegar operations centre, including Montrose, Trail and Slocan Lake.

PROVINCIAL No age divide in the job search world: StatsCan BY STEVE RENNIE THE CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA - Older unemployed workers spend as much time looking for a job as younger ones, according to a new Statistics Canada study. The agency says unemployed people aged 55 to 64 spent an average of 13 hours a week looking for work - the same as those between the ages of 20 and 34. But the study found key differences in the way each age group looked for jobs. Older people were more likely to look at job ads and less likely to use the Internet than younger job hunters. Younger people were more likely to contact employers directly as their main method of finding a job. Both age groups turned to employment agencies in similar numbers. The study also found both older and

younger unemployed workers were equally willing to look for a job outside their community. Older workers were more willing to work for 10 per cent less money than younger workers. Study author Andre Bernard said there are several reasons older workers are more willing to work for less money. “We know that older workers tend to have higher wages, just because of experience. It could just reflect that,� he said Wednesday. But Statistics Canada says most older unemployed workers were down on their chances of finding a good job in the next three months. Fifty-eight per cent felt their chances of landing an acceptable job were “not very good� - nearly twice the proportion of the younger unemployed workers. The older group was more likely to

blame their health and age as obstacles to their job search. The length of the unemployment spell didn’t change people’s job search habits. Old and young alike spent the same amount of time looking for a job after 24 weeks of unemployment as they did during their first eight weeks of joblessness. Older workers were more likely to be out of work longer than younger ones, Bernard said. “The 55-64 (group) were twice as likely to be long-term unemployed, so being unemployed for more than 24 weeks,� he said. “They stay unemployed longer.� Bernard said older workers tend to have less education than younger ones, and are more likely to have skills suited only to a specific industry, which can limit their job options. The study covered the four-year period from 2006 to 2010.

VANCOUVER - A raging wildfire in British Columbia’s Cariboo region jumped a road Tuesday night, growing explosively within hours of being sparked to cover more than one square kilometre of parched woodland. A local state of emergency was declared in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District as the blaze, believed to have been started by a house fire 40 kilometres west of Clinton, threatened about 15 homes in the Big Bar area of B.C.’s southern Interior. “It burned up to, and across, the Big Bar Road, creating a spot fire about five hectares in size on the west side of the road,� said fire information officer Jenny Fremlin. “Heavy equipment and personnel were able to construct some containment lines in the valley areas (Tuesday) night. There are, however, some steep slopes that have proved challenging to heavy machinery.� Concern about road access into the remote region was one of the reasons for the tactical evacuation of an estimated 40 residents, but an official with the regional district said they believe only three families obeyed the order and no one had registered at an evacuation centre in Clinton.

Parental abduction Mounties in the North Okanagan have foiled a possible abduction attempt in Lumby. A frantic woman called police yesterday to say her ex-husband had just burst into her home east of Vernon, assaulted her and fled with their daughter. Police stopped a suspect vehicle in Coldstream and arrested three Lake Country residents -including the ex-husband, his current wife and his brother. The girl has been returned safely to her mother while the trio is expected to face charges of abduction, assault and break and enter.

Speedy charges Four accused street racers in West Kelowna have discovered—the hard way—that speeding past a marked police car does not end well. The three have lost their cars for at least 30 days, face a combined 360 days in driving prohibitions and more than three-thousand dollars in fines after blowing past the cruiser at about 140 kilometres per hour early Monday morning. In all, four cars were spotted weaving and racing down Highway 97, and Mounties were able to corral three within minutes, while tracking the fourth driver down a short time later. That man, a 26-year old West Kelowna resident who is already under a current driving ban, has been handed another 90-day prohibition while police mull additional charges.

Climber death A 35-year-old experienced mountaineer from Calgary has died in a fall on Mount Robson, along the British Columbia/Alberta boundary, just west of Jasper. The coroner says Bradley Charles Joyce died Monday when a snowbridge collapsed as he crossed a crevasse, and he was buried by a small avalanche after falling into the fissure. Joyce’s climbing partner called for help but Joyce could not be revived. Mount Robson is the tallest—and one of the most challenging—peaks in the Canadian Rockies and the accident occurred on one of the most difficult routes on the back of the mountain.

Kroeger, Lavigne gush over their surprising love BY VICTORIA AHEARN THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - Nickelback may be known for their over-the-top pyrotechnics, but frontman Chad Kroeger reportedly took a low-key approach when he proposed to fellow rocker Avril Lavigne. This week’s issue of Hello! Canada magazine, due out Thursday, has an exclusive interview with the newly announced Canadian music power duo in which Kroeger says: “I feel like the luckiest person alive.� He also reveals he used a scrapbook to pop the question to Lavigne as the pair worked together on her upcoming fifth studio album in Los Angeles. “It happened in their recording studio. She was scrapbooking and he added a page to the scrapbook, and the page said: ‘Will you marry me?�’ Alison Eastwood, editor-in-chief of Hello! Canada, said Wednesday in a telephone interview. Lavigne, 27, and Kroeger, 37, shocked music fans and media outlets Tuesday when they announced their engagement after a six-month courtship that flew under the radar of most pop-culture enthusiasts. Hello! Canada was among those who didn’t previously know of their romance and was “quite surprised� when the couple approached them within the last week to share their story and engagement photographs, said Eastwood. “I think we can safely call them Canada’s new super couple. Between them they have sold, I think, something like 18 million albums, so they’re quite a powerhouse.� The cover of the Hello! Canada magazine issue shows Kroeger hugging Lavigne from behind while she displays the 14-carat pear-shaped diamond engagement ring he picked out for her. They’re both clad in black and beaming.


Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger tells Hello! Canada magazine he fell for fellow rocker Avril Lavigne in Paris during work on her upcoming fifth studio album. In this week\’s issue of Hello! Canada magazine, the two share their story and engagement photos, in which Lavigne is wearing a pear-shaped diamond ring. In the five-page photo spread, they reveal they started off as friends on location in Paris and their feelings for each other quickly developed from there. “I knew I was falling for her. It was incredibly powerful and something I’ll never forget,� Kroeger, who hails from Hanna, Alta., tells the magazine. Says Lavigne, who grew up in Napanee, Ont.: “He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive.� Eastwood said Kroeger in particular opened up “to a surprising extent, and

of the two of them he sounded more romantic.� “He’s totally besotted with Avril, and who can blame him? But if you see the photographs in the magazine ... he’s just beaming from ear to ear. We have never seen Chad Kroeger look so happy.� Lavigne also gushed to the magazine about Kroeger’s sense of humour. “She said some people might not even know that about him, that he’s incredibly funny,� said Eastwood. “As we say, they’re making beautiful music together,� she added. “We’re very happy for them, and when you read the story and see the photographs, it’s very touching, perhaps unexpectedly so.� The two haven’t announced a wedding date yet, but Lavigne told Hello! “she has the whole thing planned out and that it will be a huge celebration,� said Eastwood. Nickelback - which also includes Kroeger’s brother, Mike, on bass, guitarist Ryan Peake and drummer Daniel Adair - was named group of the decade by Billboard magazine. Their 2001 breakthrough hit “How You Remind Me� was the decade’s top rock song, and their bestselling album is 2005’s “All the Right Reasons.� But despite their monster popularity, the group has more than its fair share of detractors. Last year, after Nickelback was invited to play at a Detroit Lions football game, an online petition protesting the performance drew more than 55,000 signatures. Some of that sentiment was echoed on Twitter, where the two were trending Wednesday with the hashtag #Chavril. “Let’s hope that Avril Lavigne is to Nickleback what Yoko Ono was to the Beatles #chavril,� wrote a Twitter user with the handle JonCranny. “Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger from

Nickelback are getting married? I didn’t know Canada allowed SAME SUCKS MARRIAGE,� wrote Adam-Newman. This will be the first marriage for Kroeger and the second for Lavigne, who filed for divorce from fellow Canuck rocker Deryck Whibley of Sum 41 in 2009 after three years of marriage. Lavigne’s other high-profile boyfriends have included reality TV star Brody Jenner. Lavigne got her breakthrough as a teen in 2002 with her debut album “Let Go� and the hit single, “Complicated.�

LONDON - British writer Nina Bawden, who wrote children’s classics including the World War II story “Carrie’s War,� died Wednesday. She was 87. Her son, Robert Bawden, said the author died at her London home. The cause of death was not disclosed. Bawden wrote more than 40 novels for adults and children, including “The Peppermint Pig,� �The Runaway Summer“ and �Carrie’s War,“ which drew on her experience as a wartime evacuee from London. Her children’s books won praise for their mix

of incident-rich plots and realistic child’s-eye views of the world. “Carrie’s War� has been filmed twice by the BBC and is read by British schoolchildren as part of the national curriculum. Bawden’s adult novel “Circles Of Deceit� was shortlisted for the 1987 Booker Prize. The writer became a campaigner for rail safety and victims’ rights after her husband Austen Kark was killed in a train crash in 2002. Bawden was seriously injured in the same accident, when a high-speed train derailed at Potters Bar, north of London.

Her last published book, “Dear Austen,� dealt with the crash which killed seven people and injured more than 70. Playwright David Hare, who included Bawden as a character in his play about railways, “The Permanent Way,� said the novelist was “an uncomplicatedly good woman, whose long fight to obtain justice for the victims of the Potters Bar crash was a model of eloquence, principle and human decency.� Bawden’s publisher, Lennie Goodings of Virago Press, said she was “a gently fierce, clever, elegant, wicked-

ly funny woman.� Bawden is survived by her son, two step-

he B.C. government’s emergency committee on timber supply has produced its report, but it leaves many of the big questions unanswered. Can the Burns Lake sawmill, destroyed by fire last winter, be given enough timber to rebuild? It’s likely, committee members concluded, if areas that are currently considered “marginally economic” are harvested. With nearly half the pine in that region dead from beetle infestation, and much of the better timber already cut, that means harvesting areas that would produce only about two thirds of the volume that is currently considered economical to log. Will eight more sawmills have to close once the beetle-killed timber becomes too degraded to cut in the next few years? Committee members hold out hope that extending the cut to less


FLETCHER B.C. Views economic timber stands can reduce this impact as well. But with the current cut far above historical levels to maximize beetle-kill harvest, some industry contraction seems inevitable. All this depends on adequate forest inventory and investment in replanting, fertilizing and provision of additional roads and power lines that would allow access to timber and potential bioenergy development. And that is where the political fight lies ahead. The timber supply committee delivered a unani-

mous report, despite the harsh divisions between the B.C. Liberal and NDP members who serve on it. NDP forest critic Norm Macdonald, vice chair of the committee, agreed it did good work during the seven months it has toured affected areas of the B.C. Interior. But he said the roots of the problem go back a decade, to when the B.C. Liberals started reducing support for forest health just as the beetle epidemic was spreading. Ten years ago the government removed the obligation for the province to reforest areas affected by disease and fire. This was not only at the peak of the epidemic, it was one year before devastating wildfires raced through the Interior in the summer of 2003. “In 2002, the government removed its obligation to replant those areas, and cut the budget by 90 per cent,” Macdonald told

me. “The three-year budget that’s in front of us is keeping on the downward slide, and it’s not what people in communities are saying is the answer. So that has to change.” The opposition, the auditor general and various forest experts have been blasting the government for the degraded state of the timber inventory, at a time when environmental changes have been sweeping. Steve Thomson, minister of the newly amalgamated forests, lands and natural resource operations ministry, points to the urgent efforts to upgrade the government’s detailed picture of the state of the forests, so it can consider new cutting, planting and fertilizing efforts. But there’s no denying that he came to the job in a crisis that will take more spending in the future, and he will have a hard time finding it as Finance Minister Kevin Falcon looks

to balance the books for the 2013 election. If nothing else, the pine beetle epidemic has forced the B.C. government to consider some of the intensive forest management that we hear about in Scandinavia, one of those places that supplies British Columbia with wood furniture. And it has prompted renewed interest in offering new forest tenures to aboriginal communities with unresolved resource claims. Under current law, the government can only direct award new forest tenures to aboriginal communities. So part of the committee’s proposed solution is to “expedite negotiations” with the Burns Lake First Nations to give them a chance to harvest some of the marginally economic forest areas that remain.

Geography trumps population numbers To the Editor: Open letter to the Provincial Commission of the Electoral Boundaries Readjustment Act. This letter is a request to the provincial commission to re-examine the mandates of readjustment considerations before redrawing the electoral boundaries once again. I maintain climate change should be our number one consideration. According to the 2007 Government of Canada report on climate change From Impacts to Adaptation, Canada in a Changing Climate 2007: “It needs to be understood that there will be no return to the previous normal. Instead, we face an ongoing process of change that will continue for decades to centuries. This is not uncertainty regarding whether climate will change, but rather about the speed and magnitude of climate change over time.� British Columbia’s Provincial Emergency Program (BC-PEP) reports that from 2003 to 2005, the frequency, severity and costs of extreme weather events causing personal and economic losses due to infrastructure damage rose dramatically as a result of wildfires, storm surges, heavy rains causing flooding and landslides, and drought. Warmer winter weather, resulting in ice jams, freezing rain and rain-on-snow events, also resulted in economic losses. These events cost B.C. taxpayers an average of $86 million per year in payouts of disaster financial assistance, compared to an average of $10 million per year from 1999 to 2002. This increase is consistent with increasing weather-related hazards, as documented in the Canadian Disaster Database 2003; Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada, 2006b. The super saturation slide at Johnsons Landing illustrated how poorly prepared the Kootenay region is to cope with what is forecast to become a regular occurrence in the region by the federal report. Climate change could cause an increase in super saturation slides that would interrupt Columbia Basin river flows and electrical supplies to the province of B.C. and downstream U.S.A. It is completely within the realm of possibility that such a slide could cause an inland tsunami that overwhelms an upriver dam, causing a catastrophic domino effect down river. Given the many serious consequences of climate change, of which the above is only one, I propose that geography and historical patterning trumps population numbers in regards to mandate considerations for responsible climate change adaptation and mitigation . Presently, the Columbia Basin river system is split between separate riding boundaries, cutting the river system into north and south sections. Our federal representative should have direct contact with the Columbia Basin dam manager, and have a complete overview of the river systems—identifying potential problem areas and have an emergency team response in place.


It would be much more efficient to have all the electrical generation and reservoir dams in one riding. I point out that our elected representatives will be working much harder for us all in response to climate change. “To cope effectively with climate change there must be a strong understanding of the issue. This requires knowledge of potential impacts and vulnerabilities, of projected changes in climate and of adaptation processes and decision-making. As in other public policy areas, serious consequences can flow from failures of integration and cooperation,� (Gov’t of Canada 2007). Climate change asks us to be practical above all else, and for us to look more closely at our physical surroundings so we are aware of the safety issues pertaining to local climate change. Federally, provincially and locally, climate change adaptation preparations and discussions appear to be almost nonexistent. All public servants should be familiar with the consequences of climate change. Clearly our federal and provincial electoral districts should be designed to prioritize efficiency in cooperation between geographically inter-related communities. We would be able designate local technicians to geo-hazard map the entire region, likewise appoint technicians and emergency response systems to deal with over-full dams, washed out bridges, slides, fires, devastating winds, stranded communities, medical emergencies and interrupted communication networks. Federally, provincially and locally, we residents must custom design the best adaptive climate change plan for our region. Electoral boundaries determine the area of response that our federal elected representative will have to deal with. That is why I feel so strongly that we must keep our electoral region within specific geographically- related areas. I personally feel that from north of Revelstoke Lake, east to Creston, south by Trail and Rossland to the U.S.A. border and west to Castlegar and Edgewood contains our geographical area within reachable winter access boundaries (avalanche occurrences) and within the Columbia and Kootenay river drainages. Canada must take climate change seriously, if it is to adapt successfully, with an environment and economy intact. The success of the adaptation will be in the hands of our elected representatives and their ability to maneuver within their realistically manageable ridings. How do the population numbers add up for the electoral mandate considerations? Presently the population numbers are well within the +/- 25 per cent, begging the issue of electoral readjustment at this time. If boundaries are to be readjusted, they should be done so first and foremost to accommodate the serious threat of climate change. Susan Eyre, Yahk

Trail Stingrays Div. 5 relay team of Jennifer Chung, Madison Green, Tess Markus, and Eden Kormendy swam to bronze at the provincials in Nanaimo on the weekend, adding to a great medal haul. Dylan and Eden Kormendy won 11 medals between them and also got the opportunity to meet Olympic Games bronze medal marathon swimmer Richard Weinberger in Victoria following the meet.

Stingray duo clean up at provincials BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

The Trail Stingrays returned from the B.C. Summer Swimming Association (BCSSA) provincial meet in Nanaimo with an unprecedented medal haul. “It was great, absolutely amazing,” said Stingrays coach Samme Beatson. “Everybody swam best times, which is exactly what we wanted, and the team overall, we won 13 medals, which is the most I can remember.” The Stingrays also finished 18th overall out of 62 teams, an incredible accomplishment for the local club. The Rays bounty included 11 medals mined by the dynamic sibling duo of Eden and Dylan Kormendy. “They did very well this weekend, the Kormendy’s,” said Beatson. “They were ranked in the top three for their events but once you get to provincials it can go any way. I’m just really proud they were able to do so well.” Dylan, a Div. 1 boys swimmer, led the charge with three golds and two silver, blowing away the competition in the

50-metre backstroke, which he won by almost two seconds, as well as taking gold in the 100-m individual medley (IM), and the 200 medley regional relay. Dylan also took silver in the 50-m breastroke and 50-m butterfly - narrowly missing top spot by three-tenths of a second. Eden supplemented the riches with three individual silver and a bronze medal, finishing second in the 100 IM, 50 free, 100 free, and third in the 50 breaststroke. She and the Stingrays’ Aby Elwood also swam with the Kootenay region team that placed second in the regional medley relay. Amazingly, Eden, a Div. 3 swimmer, and Tess Markus, a Div. 4 swimmer, won bronze with the older girls Div. 5 freestyle relay team, breaking the two-minute barrier with team mates Madison Green and Jennifer Chung. “It is pretty amazing,” said Beatson. “The whole relay team they all went best times on the relay, which was great - that doesn’t always happen, I was just really proud.”

While Kormendy’s mother Marcy expected some good results from Dylan, who won gold in the breaststroke last year, she was a little surprised at the big splash her daughter made. “Eden’s older (than Dylan) so it’s a lot harder, so she kind of surprised us, but they sure cleaned up that’s for sure.” Among the other medalists, in Div. 6 Oleg Liferovich earned two silver medals in the 50 and 100 fly, while Eric Gonzalez captured bronze in the 50 free, and narrowly missed the podium in the 100 free, finishing fourth. From the beginning of the season, Beatson’s plan was for each swimmer to improve their stroke, which she hoped would lead to personal-best times. Individual and team results at the regional and provincial swim meets more than illustrate just how effective her approach has been. “I hope that the club will want me back again, because I really, really enjoyed coaching this year, and I’d be really excited if they should give me the opportunity to do it again.”


Saints name Wood-be captain CASTLEGAR, -The Selkirk College Saints Men’s Hockey program is pleased to announce that secondyear forward Jordan Wood has been named the team’s captain for the upcoming 2012/13 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League season. “Jordan is a top player in our league and his leadership skills will be heavily relied

upon this season,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “He’s a hard-working, dedicated student athlete who is committed to setting the proper tone for his teammates on and off the ice and helping to create a winning environment. We’re very pleased to have a young man of his ability and character to lead our group this season.” Wood enjoyed a stellar rookie season with the Saints

in 2011/12, leading the team in scoring with 23 goals and 43 points in 24 games. His points total placed him third amongst BCIHL scorers and earned him a spot on the league’s First All-Star team. The 21-year old was one of the league’s most consistent offensive performers, picking up points in 21 of the Saints’ 24 regular season contests. He totalled 16 multi-point games and a pair of hat tricks, includ-

ing one in Selkirk’s first-ever win against Thompson Rivers University on February 18th. A Business diploma student, Wood came to Selkirk following a stellar junior career that saw him collect 55 goals and 125 points over three seasons with the KIJHL’s Kelowna Chiefs. He also suited up for the British Columbia Hockey League’s Westside Warriors during the 2010/11 season.

‘Behind every dark cloud is a silver lining,’ but the AM Ford Trail Orioles hopes this lining turns golden as it heads to the Western AA Men’s Baseball championship in Elmwood, Man. today. The Orioles are looking to defend last year’s Western championship and have been bolstered recently by a local ballplayer’s bad luck. Chris Kissock was released from the Philadelphia Phillies franchise earlier this month, yet the Phillies loss should prove to be a muchneeded shot in the arm for the Orioles. “I’ve been out throwing and catching, and a bunch of guys have been hitting off me, so it has been good practice for both of us,” said Kissock. “I’m excited, it’s fun but I know we’re going to go take it pretty seriously.” Kissock will also play in the Grand Forks International baseball tournament in September, before joining Team Canada for the World Baseball Classic qualifying tournament in Germany. Kissock is a timely addition, as the Orioles will be without the services of aces Scott Rhynold, Trail native Pat Brown, as well as Connor and Kellen Jones, so shoring up an already depleted pitching staff and infield was key. “With Kissock back that will be a pretty big addition,” said player/coach Jim Maniago. “He’s looking forward to joining us and having some fun.” The O’s also signed South Slocan native and Seattle Mariners’ draft pick Aaron Cotter to join the pitching rotation. The right-hander was drafted in 2007 and spent six years playing in the minor leagues before becoming pitching coach for the Spruce Grove Whitesox AAA team in April. They picked up Denver Wynn, a hard-throwing right-handed pitcher and Minnesota Twins draft pick, who played with the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack in 2012 where he received first all-star team honours in the Canadian College Baseball Conference. The O’s will see the return of Joey Underwood to short stop for the absent Connor Jones, and Kyle Mace to second base, who missed the provincial tournament last month. As defending champions, the Orioles will be up against very tough competition. In last year’s tournament, one run decided four of five O’s games. “I don’t feel any added pressure, but I think everyone will be gunning for us,” said Maniago. Particularly the Elmwood Giants out of Manitoba that have finished second the past two years, including a thrilling 4-3 loss to the Orioles in the final last year at Butler Park. “When you’re the defending champions going back, you know we’ll see everybody’s top pitcher, I’m sure, so as good as we’re feeling about ourselves, it’s not going to be easy, and we are going to have to play well.” The tournament opens tonight with the host team Giants taking on provincial representative from Manitoba, the Brandon All-Stars. Trail’s first game goes Friday at 10:30 a.m. against Saskatchewan, and again at 7:30 p.m. versus Alberta. On Sunday the O’s play Brandon at 2 p.m. and the Giants at 8 p.m. The top teams in the round robin will play in the final on Sunday at noon. “We’re looking forward to it, we can’t wait,” says Maniago. “It happens quick, five games in 48 hours and then your done. So it’s good that we have all the guys we got, because that’s a lot of baseball and it would be nice to spell a few guys off here and there, and be fresh.”

Former Cy Young winner suspended 50 games the announcement of Colon’s penalty a week after All-Star game MVP Cabrera received his 50-game suspension following a positive test for the same substance. “I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to the Oakland A’s,” Colon said in a statement released by the players’ association. “I accept responsibility for my actions and I will serve my suspension as required by the joint drug program.” He will miss the final 40 games of the regular season and the first

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS OAKLAND, Calif. - Make it two 50-game suspensions in exactly one week - both starters for contending teams from the Bay Area, both for testosterone. Former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon of the Oakland Athletics was suspended for 50 games Wednesday after testing positive for testosterone, joining San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera on the suspended list for the rest of the regular season. Major League Baseball made

10 games of the post-season if Oakland advances that far. Any remainder of the suspension would be served in a future season, if Colon signs another major league contract. “It’s a shock,” Oakland reliever Grant Balfour said. “He’s a guy that we’re definitely relying on right now. I guess you could say it’s bad timing any time, but especially now.” Oakland, which hasn’t made the playoffs since 2006, began Wednesday a half-game out in the AL wild-card race.

began searching for a starter to take Colon’s turn in the rotation Thursday at Tampa Bay. Tyson Ross will be called up from Triple-A Sacramento. Beane addressed the A’s in the clubhouse before the team took the field for pregame warmups. “Listen, it’s disappointing. From a baseball standpoint, we’re scrambling,” Beane said. “We’re all disappointed, not just for the Giants and the A’s, but for baseball.” The 39-year-old Colon is 10-9 with a 3.43 ERA in 24 starts this season, his first with the A’s, and has a 171-122 record in 15 big league seasons. A two-time All-Star, the burly right-hander won the 2005 AL Cy Young Award after going 21-8 for the Los Angeles Angels. Colon will lose the remaining $469,945 of his $2 million base salary this year. He also has earned $750,000 in performance bonuses based on starts and $150,000 based on innings, which

are not impacted. Thursday’s start would have earned him another $250,000, and the suspension will cost him the chance to make $850,000 in additional bonuses based on innings. Manager Bob Melvin hadn’t spoken to Colon as of late morning Wednesday. “It is what it is. We certainly don’t support the actions, but you have to move forward,” Melvin said. “You go through things over the course of the season. This is just one of them. ... You have to have a short memory.” CHEATERS Players who have been suspended this season for violating the Major League Baseball Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program (x-second offence): x-RHP Guillermo Mota, San Francisco, May 7, 100 games (clenbuterol) INF Freddy Galvis, Philadelphia, June 19, 50 games (clostebol metabolite) OF Marlon Byrd, free agent, June 25, 50 games (tamoxifen) OF Melky Cabrera, San Francisco, Aug. 15, 50 games (testosterone) RHP Bartolo Colon, Oakland, Aug. 22, 50 games (testosterone)


Oilers nail down Hall


E D M O N T O N - Taylor Hall is in for the long haul in Edmonton. The Oilers signed the young forward to a US$42-million, sevenyear contract extension Wednesday and the Calgary native said he had no hesitation about the length of the deal. “When they said seven years I didn’t blink,” the 20-year-old Hall said. “I’m comfortable being here for that long. I think by that time ... I hope we’re a perennial threat. That’s my main goal and my mindset when I signed the deal.” Hall was the Oilers’ first overall pick in

2010 and has since become a key fixture on the team’s youthful top line alongside fellow first overall pick Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle. The deal makes Hall the highest paid player on the Oilers in average salary at $6 million per year. Veteran centre Shawn Horcoff, who signed a hefty six-year, $33-million deal in 2009-10, will make $6 million next season but averages a lower cap hit at $5.5 million. Eberle is also in negotiations for a contract extension and likely looking for similar money to Hall. Eberle made his rookie

debut the same year as Hall and is coming off a breakout season with a team-high 34 goals and 76 points. “We’ve had some good dialogues throughout this whole thing and I think his should be pretty soon,” Hall said of his linemate. “He’s along the same path, he wants to be here and so do I.” The Oilers have been in rebuilding mode for several years now. Last season they finished 29th in the NHL with a 32-40-10 record. Hall finished second behind Eberle in scoring with 27 goals and 26 assists in 61 games. His season was cut short due to a shoulder injury, but says he’s four and half months into a six-month recovery and feeling close to

being game-ready. “It’s good, I’m really positive about it,” said Hall. “I’m not going to say I’m perfect on Day 1 but it feels really good now and I’m excited about the process of being healthy.” Hall’s numbers last season were slightly up from his rookie campaign when he had 22 goals and 20 assists in 65 games in another injury-shortened season. Hall and NugentHopkins were the first and second, respectively, of Edmonton’s three straight first overall picks in the last three NHL drafts. In June, the Oilers chose Russian forward Nail Yakupov, who signed an entry-level, three-year deal last month.

Possible to not be attracted to anyone Dear Annie: I’ve been married for 14 years. The first few, everything was good, and then I stopped enjoying sex. I’ve seen several different doctors and had my hormones checked, and the verdict is that I am in great health for a 39-year-old. I think the main problem is, while I love my husband, I don’t find him attractive. I’m not sure I ever did. I was 23 when we met and had never had a boyfriend. Men had never been interested in me until he came along. He is smart, funny and experimental in the bedroom, so it isn’t like we haven’t tried new things. He would do anything for me. But, Annie, having sex with him is a massive chore. I suspect he knows this, and I hate making him feel bad. I can’t fake passion I don’t feel. To tell the truth, I doubt another man would do it for

me, either, and I’m not attracted to women. I feel like a part of me is missing, and I don’t know how to find it. What now? -- Berlin, Germany Dear Berlin: It is possible that you are asexual -- meaning you are not attracted, sexually, to anyone. If this sounds like what you are experiencing, please look into AVEN (Asexual Visibility and Education Network) at However, if your libido previously was working fine and your lack of interest was sudden, you may want to get a referral to see a doctor who specializes in sexual disorders. A

normal balance of hormones for most women may be insufficient for you. And of course, there are other possibilities -- psychological issues, weight issues, nutrition deficiencies, medications -- all of which can affect desire and libido. You owe it to yourself and your husband to figure this out. Good luck. Dear Annie: I am appalled by my own offspring. My son is 30, and my daughter-inlaw is 27. My grandchild is 16 months old. We had been traveling and stopped at a restaurant. While we waited for our food, my son and his wife fed my grandchild her dinner. The end result was at least 10 pasta noodles dropped on the carpeted floor under the table. I cleaned them up, but it should have been the job of my socalled adult children to leave our table floor area clean. They felt it was no big deal to leave the mess.

We most likely will never return to that restaurant, and they won’t remember us anyway. But if it had been my place of business, I would have told us not to return until we had manners. What do you say? -- Angry and Embarrassed. Dear Angry: We say calm down. Restaurants serve food. People -- both children and adults -- spill and drop food all the time. While one should not deliberately toss food around, and it behooves parents to keep the mess to a minimum and pick up what they can, it isn’t necessary to leave the floor spotless. Cleaning up is part of the overhead costs, and the management does not expect patrons to do all the work. Dear Annie: I believe you were wrong in your advice to “Frustrated and Alone in Indianapolis,” whose mother is difficult. You suggested he

try to find better ways to deal with her. I, too, have had to deal with a mother like his. I finally had to make the same decision and cut all ties. It was not easy, but I am healthier for it. I don’t miss my mother, only

the idea of a mother. Some people are so toxic that you simply cannot have them in your life. -- B.T. Dear B.T.: “Frustrated’s” mother sounded like someone who has learned to push her son’s but-

tons. We felt it might be worth figuring out how to respond differently to her and see whether that helps before cutting her off. We still do. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.



Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to 9 in the empty squares so that each row, each column and each 3x3 box contains the same number only once. The difficulty level of the Conceptis Sudoku increases from Monday to Friday. SOLUTION FOR YESTERDAY’S SUDOKU


Thursday, August 23, 2012 Trail Daily Times


YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Friday, Aug. 24, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel tired at work today. This is a temporary thing; don’t worry. However, be very careful taking the suggestions of others. Check everything out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might develop a crush or fall in love with someone today because you are temporarily fooled or deceived. (We all do this to ourselves from time to time.) Be careful. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don’t take on too much with family business or chores at home today, because halfway through whatever happens, you might regret it. Go slowly, and be careful. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Encounters with others can be downright confusing today -- perhaps even demoralizing! Take everything that

everyone says with a grain of salt. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a poor day to make important financial decisions. Very likely, you do not have all the facts, or people are not playing straight with you. Don’t trust yourself to make important deals today. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Today is full of considerable confusion, vagueness and uncertainty. You might feel sympathy for someone and then later find out that you were just being a sucker. (Ouch.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Quite likely, you feel tired today. Don’t worry about this, because it’s just par for the course. Don’t work too hard. Do whatever you can to get more rest. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) When dealing with people in a group situation today,

if you feel that something fishy is going on, it is! Don’t let others corral you into any kind of decision that you don’t want to make. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a poor day for discussions with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. It’s as if there’s too much static in the air. “You’re breaking up. I can’t hear you.”

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be enthralled by someone who seems to be profound and inspiring. While this might be the case, you also might be seduced by a clever salesperson. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Do not make important decisions about how to share or divide something today, especially inheritances or shared property. Wait until

another day to agree to anything. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Relations with friends and partners might be disappointing today. Perhaps you expected a match. Perhaps you’re not even sure what’s going on. YOU BORN TODAY The word “casual” is not in your vocabulary. You are very careful and very thorough. You do your homework and









research everything before you begin something. You love to solve puzzles and mysteries. Your ability to observe and investigate can help you in your job. An exciting year awaits you, because it’s the beginning of a new cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Stephen Fry, actor; Alex Colville, artist; A.S. Byatt, novelist.

The family of the late Donato (passed Nov. 20, 2011) and Teresa (passed Dec. 8, 2011) Picone would like to thank the wonderful and caring community of Trail that became part of the fabric of our parents’ life for close to 80 years. Thank you to our Trail relatives who were always there for them. Thank you to Dr. Stanley, Lori Verigin and staff; Jan Furiak and staff; and Neighbourhood Nursing for their dedication, kindness and very attentive care. Thank you to Dr. Malpass for his dedication to the Heart Function Program in Nelson and to Stacy Lock of the Heart Function Program in Trail. Thank you to the many kind and generous neighbours and friends who were always watching out for them; who were always ready with a helping hand, home baked goodies, garden produce and good company. Thank you to Papa’s curling buddies and the arena staff. How he loved being ‘part of the team’!! Thank you to Al Grywacheski and Bill Clark and staff of Alternatives Funeral Services for their service and sensitivity. Thank you to Bunny Dallas and the ladies of the CWL for serving the reception. Thank you to everyone who supported us through cards, Masses, flowers, and through their presence, prayers, and donations to the KBRH Foundation in memory of Donuts and Terry.

Thank you to Father Mattieu, Sister Norma, the altar servers, the choir, organist Elizabeth Stephens, soloist Mary Audia, the staff and the congregation of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church.

Donuts and Terry Picone Donato (Donuts) was born in Santo Stefano del Sole, Avellino, Italy on September 13, 1920 to Luigi Picone and Alesandra DiMarino - the middle of three boys - Domenico and Carmin. Donuts left Italy with his family in 1931. Teresa (Terry) Audia was born in Fernie, B.C. on May 20, 1915 to Salvedore ‘Tony’ Audia and Guiseppina Di Marco. Her siblings were Pasquale, Mary, John, Ross, Chrissie and half sister Rosa. In 1943, she, her mother and brother Ross joined the other siblings who were working in Trail. Donuts and Terry met when both families lived on Byers Lane. Later as adults, they met again at local dances and began dating. The couple was married on April 30, 1947 at St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church. They were married almost 65 years. They had three children, six grandchildren and five great grandchildren. We all love you Nana and Papa and we miss you completely.

That will be one of the areas they discuss for improvement in 2013.
