Many old issues remain for new school year BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

New school year, same old story. Teachers are now preparing to head back into the courtroom even as they begin preparing lesson plans in the first week of school, less than two months after

the province’s teachers broke a year-long labour dispute with a new contract. However, Kootenay Columbia Teachers Union president Andy Davidoff said many of the key issues relating to last year’s labour dispute—such as class siz-

es—have largely gone unresolved. “The courts can’t do anything about it, which is something we’re challenging as well,” he said Tuesday on the first day of classes for many SD20 students. “Our contract is up at the end of next

June and we’re going to see what happens with other public service selections in the province.” In 2001 the government stripped the teachers collective agreement’s language in what courts ruled an

the frustration of returning to the last labour dispute tactics of the previous school year, but with three high-profile members of the B.C. Liberal government—including Education Minister George Abbott— announcing that they will not be seeking re-election next May, teachers are eager to see what caucus will churn out. “But we’re not going to miss (Education Minister) George Abbott,� Davidoff said. “I think the public is tired of hearing about it from the teachers’ side and from the government’s side and they’re tired of the whole debate; but the one thing people need to understand is that when you don’t have limits on class sizes, students suffer.� SD20’s budget has been further reduced by

$1.5 million this year, a move that could jeopardize elective courses or blocks. Davidoff noted one school in the district had a metalwork class for students in Grades 10-12, with six special needs students, all in one class. “And that’s not good for anybody,� he said. “Principals of schools are struggling with offering electives and even non-elective courses. I know, I’m dealing with a situation right now where we’re trying to sort out how to offer a Math 12 with a Chem 12, which is going through all kinds of machinations.� But SD20 superintendent of schools Greg Luterbach has urged principals to keep class sizes under 30, where possible. “And I really think that’s commendable because they’re trying to keep class sizes down

as close to the 30 as possible in Grade 4 to 12,� Davidoff said. “But many districts across the province are going to have class sizes that exceed the 30.� In early August a new B.C. Court of Appeal decision on class sizes meant that school administrators must be accountable to teachers for planning class sizes, overturning a 2009 decision in arbitration that said as long as a classroom did not exceed 33 students, 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 decided to impose a district-wide rise of one student in the studentto-teacher ratio—from 24-1 to 25-1.

Legal advice available for entrepreneurs BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

The Kootenay Association for Science and Technology (KAST) recently launched a free legal advice program (ASK An Expert: LEGAL) for creative entrepreneurs. ASK An Expert Legal is a partnership project shared between KAST, Community Futures

of Greater Trail, Community Futures Central Kootenay and Leon Pigott of Pigott Company. “I was motivated to start offering the Business Law Clinics because of my experience in my practice is that many start-up and small business owners leave getting legal advice too late in the

process,” said Pigott. “Often some early advice from a lawyer would help to build a strong foundation for growth.” Pigott has been a corporate and commercial lawyer for 15 years, working from Calgary through the Kootenays. He obtained a Masters of Business Administration in 2002.

Later he moved to Nelson with his family and began practicing corporate and real estate law privately. The program offers advice on topics ranging from business structure decisions, purchasing an existing business, intellectual property protection and business structuring, to name a few. The idea

is geared to wind up innovative minds with a flare for technology. The program doesn’t have a screening program, it’s based on a first-come-first-serve initiative and it will be traveling through Greater Trail, Nelson and Castlegar. For more information, visit www.kast. com.


Airline cuts service due to lack of demand BY SALLY MACDONALD Cranbrook Townsman

Integra Air is pulling out of Cranbrook airport for 18 months so it can restructure its service to better suit demand. “The occupancy level has actually been quite low, which is the concern right now,” Brent Gateman, the airline’s CEO, told The Townsman. The Lethbridge-based airline began a Cranbrook to Edmonton route last summer, and has scheduled flights three or five times a week for the past 14 months. But the last scheduled flight will take off on September 7. Integra will then invest in larger aircraft that will allow it offer more frequent flights at lower prices. Currently, Integra uses 16-passenger planes for the Cranbrook-Edmonton

route. Gateman said it will use 32-passenger planes when it resumes the route. “It seems strange to add a bigger airplane with more frequency when you’re not even filling the airplane you’ve got right now,” said Gateman. “But it comes down to: is the reason the demand and the number of people wanting to travel? Or is it the fact that the travel isn’t at the time and at the price point that allows people to make it a choice? We feel the latter is the case and that just means we have to come back at it at a different angle. Unfortunately, we’re not prepared to do that right away. We need some time to go do that and come back.” Gateman speculated that it would take 18 months to make those changes. “It’s really hard at this point to be able

to set a date. We hope that it is within the next 18 months, but no guarantees.” Larger aircraft will mean Integra’s costs per seat mile are reduced, in turn meaning ticket prices will come down and there could be as many as two flights a day. “We will probably be looking at twice the frequency - a morning flight and a late afternoon flight would most likely be the schedule. But a lot of that is going to depend on some of the inter-lying connections we are trying to explore to tap into additional markets to help feed the service,” said Gateman. Integra hopes a new schedule will better appeal to commuters to the oilsands and diamond mines in northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories.

“It’s been quite a learning curve,” said Tom Zeleznik, one of the seven former directors of the Nakusp Roots Music Society, the group responsible for putting on the Nakusp Music Fest. The directors, all volunteers, are finding they’re responsible for a whole lot more now that the Society has declared bankruptcy and Revenue Canada is seeking payment for “non-resident revenue.” “You don’t know until things go topsy turvy,” added former president Donna Rebman, who is one of the directors who may be personally liable for the debt to the feds, one that is growing every day. Zeleznik estimates the debt is about $34,000, with five per cent interest compounded daily. The directors have known they would have to declare bankruptcy since March, and since that time they’ve also been dealing with their insurance company trying to find out if they’re covered against Revenue Canada’s claim. So far, no word, and the interest owing continues to grow. The decision to declare bankruptcy was a long and difficult one, said Rebman. “It wasn’t the fact we didn’t try,” emphasized Rebman, who spent months working to save the festival. “At that point there was not really much to do except declare bankruptcy.” Now the Society’s assets are to be sold, including the building and a few other items that Rebman and Zeleznik hope continue to be used in the com-

munity like the sweeper and top dresser. Although the lesson they’ve learned is a stressful one, with no end in sight at the moment, both Rebman and Zeleznik are still keen on volunteering and making things happen for Nakusp. “I learned my lessons as a director,” said Zeleznik, who said he would do it again but would be more careful when looking at the state of finances and ensuring he did his due diligence. “It’s been a hectic year,” commented Rebman, for her part. “I’m going to have to lie back a bit.” But her enthusiasm for music festivals is far from gone. Even during the discussion about the Nakusp Music Festival and what could have been changed, her excitement and energy was clear. She discussed the possibility of bringing another music festival to Nakusp, perhaps a smaller one that could be part of another event like the rodeo. Meanwhile, attendance at the inaugural Rock the Peach music festival in Penticton was barely a third of what organizers expected and some suppliers have been left holding the bag as a result. Six creditors are owed a total of about $100,000 and have been asked for a 90-day grace period on payment after some of their cheques bounced, confirmed promoter Willi Jahnke. The July 27-29 festival featured headliners like Collective Soul and Sam Roberts Band. Jahnke produced through a different company the Nakusp Music Fest, which ended run in 2011.

in which all of the mainland portion of New West would be included to be called New Westminster-East Burnaby. Currently the city is served by two ridings, BurnabyNew Westminster and New WestminsterCoquitlam and Port Moody. One of the objections NDP supporters have to the realignment is New Democrat MP Fin Donnelly, who narrowly won New WestminsterCoquitlam and Port Moody in 2011, would likely lose support if New West was lopped off. At the same time, Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian, who had a much larger margin of victory, would gain the NDP support Donnelly would lose even though most observers believe he wouldn’t need it. The net result would likely be a loss of a riding for the NDP while the Conservatives, whose candidate Diana Dilworth narrowly lost to Donnelly, would benefit. “It’s supposed to be an independent commission, but the advantage always seemed to go to the government,” said Coun. Bill Harper.

Coleman sticks with Liberals while two more MLAs leave party BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

B.C. Liberal house leader Rich Coleman has confirmed his intention to run in the 2013 election, as the party announced two more MLAs are retiring. West VancouverSea to Sky MLA Joan McIntyre and Richmond Centre MLA Rob Howard announced their retirement in separate statements Tuesday. McIntyre was first elected in 2005 and Howard in 2009. The changes came as Premier Christy Clark prepared to shuffle her cabinet. Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon resigned as finance minister last week. He was joined by Education Minister George Abbott,

Power generation plan on back burner BY STEVE KIDD Penticton Western News

The idea of Penticton generating its own electricity has been put on the back burner for a while longer. After Midgard Consulting reported back on the study commissioned earlier this year, council voted to move discussion of future movement on the project to the 2013 budget discussions. Peter Helland, spokesperson for Midgard, told council that there were feasible power generations options, which would allow Penticton to offset the costs of purchasing power from Fortis B.C. to resell through the city utility. Penticton-generated electricity could be pumped into the grid, meaning less would need to be purchased from Fortis, or it could be sold to B.C. Hydro, who pay a premium for green energy. “They are exclusively hydro-

electric, at least at our level of study,” said Helland. “We evaluated some thermal generation options, burning natural gas or burning biomass, but they aren’t considered economic or feasible at this time.” Seven options were reviewed, but Helland said all but three were either uneconomic or had serious technical challenges. The three that were left are the Greyback Dam, the Randolf irrigation diversion and the Penticton Creek Dam No. 2. The top recommendation is to set up a hydroelectric plant coming off the Randolf irrigation diversion, above the dam on Penticton Creek. That one, Helland said, would generate up to 2.83 GWh, and cost $2.2 million. Second was Penticton Creek Dam, which while considerably cheaper at $180,000, would only generate 0.26 GWh. “It should be noted that it is a very small opportunity there, so

Abbotsford-Mission MLA Randy Hawes and Vancouver-Quilchena MLA Colin Hansen have indicated they will decide soon on their political futures. Former cabinet ministers Barry Penner and Iain Black resigned their seats last year and were replaced by NDP MLAs in a pair of by-elections in April. Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen quit the B.C. Liberal Party in March and joined the B.C. Conservatives. NDP MLAs Dawn Black (New Westminster) and Mike Sather (Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows) have announced they are retiring next year, and NDP leader Adrian Dix said there may be more.

“When I entered politics in 1996, I was very concerned about the damaging impact of NDP policies and wanted my children to have a better future in British Columbia,” Coleman said. “Today, I feel as strongly as ever that my children’s and grandchildren’s future needs to be protected.” Other B.C. Liberals who have announced they are not running again are KamloopsSouth Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger, Burnaby-Lougheed MLA Harry Bloy, Vancouver-Fairview MLA Kash Heed, Surrey-Tynehead MLA Dave Hayer, Saanich North MLA Murray Coell and Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff.

we don’t recommend it as your first choice,” said Helland, referring to the dam site. “This one would be a subsequent option that could piggyback on some of the infrastructure you would have to establish.” The payback period for the two projects is estimated at 15 years and 19 years, respectively. The third option, Greyback, would take considerably longer to pay off — 28 years — but would generate much more electricity, 22.6 GWh. For comparison, the City of Penticton is budgeted to purchase 350.5 GWh of electricity in 2012, at a cost of $23,657,000. nded the city continue with two further studies, pipe capacity at Randolf and a fisheries impact assessment, to further refine the projects. “That will determine whether or not those projects are fundamentally economic. That is your low-cost way forward.”

OTTAWA - The federal Conservatives have re-calculated the national economic impact of energy and mining to help bolster their strong support of the natural-resource sector against environmentalists and others. Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver says his officials have figured out how much income the sector brings to the economy - instead of just counting barrels of oil and tonnes of metal. In 2011, the figures show, energy, forestry, metals and minerals directly accounted for 15 per cent of the country’s income. When indirect effects are taken into account, Oliver said,

natural resources drive 20 per cent of the economy - and about 10 per cent of all the jobs in Canada. “It’s not all oilsands and it’s not all Alberta,� Oliver said in the text of a speech Tuesday in Toronto. “It is forestry in British Columbia, potash and uranium in Saskatchewan, mining in Ontario’s Sudbury basin, hydro power in Quebec and all the related supply chains.� But critics say that while no one doubts the economic dominance of energy and mining, the Conservative math only shows a slice of the story. NDP natural resource critic Peter Julian said the figures don’t show how many

jobs have been lost in softwood lumber and elsewhere because of the Ottawa focus on exporting raw materials instead of valueadded products. “We don’t argue that natural resources are an important part of the Canadian economy,� Julian said. “The issue is how the government is managing the resource economy.� Plus, the new calculations are blind to the environmental cost of different types of energy production, added Keith Stewart of Greenpeace Canada. Production and investment in wind, solar and other renewables are far less costly for the environment than oil and gas, he said.


Driver causes crash to save kids THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON Edmonton police are crediting an alert driver with causing a crash that saved four children who were crossing a busy street in a crosswalk. Police say Darrell Krushelnicki drove his Hummer into the path of another car heading straight for the group. The crash happened last Friday near a mall

on the city’s south side. Police say other cars had stopped to let the children cross when they were passed by a driver speeding and talking on a cellphone. They say Krushelnicki noticed what was going on as he was leaving the mall

and pulled his truck in front of the speeding car. John Troy Heitzman, who is 23, has been charged with dangerous driving. Police say witnesses credited the 46-year-old Krushelnicki with saving the children’s lives.

t’s no surprise that we will have a record minimum of ice cover in the Arctic Ocean at the end of this summer melt season. It’s already down to around 4 million square kilometres, with a least another week of melting to go, but this is what you might call a “known unknown.” Scientists knew we were losing the ice-cover fast; they just didn’t know how fast. I’m no fan of Don Rumsfeld, who helped to lead the United States into the disastrous invasion of Iraq when he was George W. Bush’s defence secretary, but I never had a problem with the distinction he made between “known unknowns” and “unknown unknowns” when discussing the intelligence data. He was brutally mocked in the media for using such jargon, but there really is a difference. A “known unknown,” in the case of the Arctic Ocean, is how long it will be before the entire sea is ice-free at the end of each summer. The last report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), published in 2007, talked about that happening some time in the second half of this century, but it couldn’t be more specific.

The IPCC usually underestimates the rate of climatic change, but even the pessimists didn’t think we’d get there before the 2030s. I did encounter one maverick at the National Ice and Snow Data Centre who thought it might happen in this decade, but nobody actually knew. A “known unknown,” in other words. There were also some assumptions about what would happen next in the Arctic. At first the ice would return each winter, although it would be thinner and less extensive than before, but as time passed the ice-free period would get longer. A frozen ocean reflects sunlight back into space, but open water absorbs it and turns it into heat, so the ocean itself would now be getting warmer. The warmer water would inhibit the growth of ice even in winter, and eventually the Arctic Ocean would be icefree all year round – but nobody knew when this would happen. As for the impact that an ice-free Arctic Ocean might have on climates elsewhere, it would obviously accelerate the global warming trend, but beyond that there wasn’t much to go on. This was the territory of the “unknown unknowns”: big


DYER World Affairs things might happen to the complex atmospheric system of the planet when a major chunk of it suddenly changes, but nobody knew what. Now we begin to see the consequences. The polar jet stream, an air current that circles the globe in the higher northern latitudes and separates cold, wet weather to the north from warmer, drier weather to the south, is changing its behaviour. In a paper in Geophysical Letters last March entitled “Evidence linking Arctic amplification to extreme weather in mid-latitudes,” Jennifer Francis of Rutgers University and Stephen Vavrus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison offered a hypothesis that may explain why world grain prices have risen 30 percent in the past four months (and

are still going up). First, a warmer Arctic reduces the temperature gradient between the temperate and polar zones. That, in turn, slows the wind speeds in the zone between the two and increases the “wave amplitude” of the jet stream. The jet stream flows around the planet in great swooping curves, like a river crossing a flat plain, and those curves – Rossby waves, in scientific language – are getting bigger and slower. The bigger amplitude means the Rossby waves reach farther down into the temperate zone than they used to, and the slower winds means that the waves take more time to track across any given territory. The weather north of the jet stream is wet and cold (even warmer Arctic air is still pretty cold), and to the south it is dry and warm – and now many temperate regions of the planet are stuck in one kind of weather or the other for much longer periods. This is a recipe for extreme weather. In the old days the Rossby waves went past fast, bringing the alternation of rainy and sunny weather that characterised the mid-latitude climate. Now they hang around

much longer and generate more extreme weather events: droughts and heatwaves, or prolonged rain and flooding, or blizzards and long, hard freezes. The temperate zone has been seeing a lot of that sort of thing in the past couple of years – much more than usual. It’s cutting deeply into food production in the major breadbaskets of the planet, like the US Midwest and southern Russia, which is why food prices are going up so fast. And this was an “unknown unknown”: nobody saw it coming. All the scenarios that the military of various countries were working with assumed that climate change would hit food production very hard in the tropical and subtropical parts of the world, and that is still true. But the scenarios also assumed that the temperate regions of the planet would still be able to feed themselves well (and even have a surplus left over to export) for many decades to come. If Francis and Vavrus are right, that may not be the case. It’s a most unwelcome surprise – and it may be the first of many.

Forward thinking needed from politicians What the airport survey said was that people in the area were very interested and eager to see flights offered from the Waneta airport to Kelowna and/or Calgary. What it showed was that any airline or charter service would find a ready market here. Our area bleeds dollars to the Spokane airport when many of those travellers could go through Kelowna that now offers more frequent flights to LAX as well as points east such as Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto and Ottawa. Sure let’s wait for a study to be completed and then let’s wait some more while local politicians decide what they’ll do with the results. Will they vote thumbs up or down? Will the vote be on

merit or enmity? In the meantime, former Montrose Mayor Griff Welsh can continue squeezing that nickel until the beaver’s eyes pop or he can take a leap of faith and invest it in the future of the Patterson to Park Siding community. As to what and how much the Mayor of Trail knew two years ago with regard to Fortis’ decision to move its operations, he’ll have to answer that. Fortis still has not come forward to offer the citizens of Greater Trail a public meeting. Fortis afforded Castlegar a public meeting last month. If I were the Mayor of Warfield I would be concerned for some of the village’s businesses. I would want to know the impact a loss of Fortis

employees would have on my community that borders the current operations centre. Lastly, there is a need for more frequent communication between local councils and the public. The newspaper is one way; writing a weekly blog is another. Are there any 21st century bloggers on any local council? It would be another way to reach those who use IPhones or Blackberries. Wading through internet sites is possible, of course. More effective, however, would be to issue frequent media releases both to the press and radio as well as to those who sign up to have releases sent directly to their IPhones. Rose Calderon Trail

Adapt is best solution to climate change CBC’s host, Andrew Nichols, recently asked his listeners (August 19), “What are you prepared to do about climate change?� The program ignored the fact that climate is always changing and wrongly suggested that we could stabilize the planet’s climate by reducing our carbon dioxide (“CO2�) emissions. The CBC is not alone in this propaganda war against CO2, an essential plant food. The climate alarmists continue to cite weather events, including melting ice, as evidence of human-induced climate change, even though such events are well within natural variability. They ignore the inconvenient fact that the anthropogenic (human-induced) global warming (“AGW�) hypothesis would require us to rewrite the laws of physics and chemistry. However, please be assured that a knowledge of science is


not required to assess the validity of the AGW alarmist message. All that is necessary is the application of common sense to the following facts: 1. Ancient atmospheres contained much larger quantities of CO2; and 2. The carbon content of the planet’s fossil-fuel deposits (coal, oil, and gas) is relatively small compared to the missing CO2. The missing CO2 was used by natural processes to form carbonate rocks such as limestone and coral. This serious depletion of the life-sustaining carbon inventory has given us a CO2-starved atmosphere. As a result, greenhouse operators must generate CO2 to achieve acceptable yields. Unfortunately, the carbon in the planet’s fossil-fuel deposits is not sufficient to restore the fertile (CO2-rich) ancient atmospheres. For example, the planet’s oil

and gas reserves would have to be 120 times larger to create an atmosphere with the CO2 content of a dinosaur-era atmosphere. Therefore, it is nonsensical to believe that the return of a very small fraction of the sequestered carbon to its origins will cause a climate catastrophe. A historical perspective clearly demonstrates that the debate over CO2’s ability to drive our climate is irrelevant simply because the quantity of carbon in the planet’s fossil-fuel deposits is immaterial. In conclusion, the answer to Andrew Nichol’s question is to do what our ancestors have always done; adapt or move to warmer climes. Yes, warmer climes since global cooling has always been, and will always be, the greatest climate-change threat to civilizations. Thorpe Watson Warfield

Orioles cash in BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

While the Lewiston Paffile Truckers won their fourth Grand Forks International baseball tournament title in five years - Trail’s AM Ford Orioles put in an impressive performance making the money round and narrowly missing a semifinal bid. The Orioles won two of three in the round robin to guarantee them a spot in the do-or-die cash go-round, and were one run away from making it further than they have since 2003. “The caliber of the tournament this year was higher than the last couple of years,” said Oriole player/coach Jim Maniago. “There was no easy games, but we played well.” The 2-1 Team Canada met Trail in the first match of the money round in what turned out to be a nail biter. Canada’s Andrew Firth pounded a solo home run over the left field fence to break a 2-2 deadlock in the fourth inning and send them to a 3-2 victory. Canada went up 2-0 in the top of the third inning, but the Orioles replied in the bottom half. Jesse Rypien reached base on an error, and Dustin Bissonette laid down a sac bunt to move him to second before Joey Underwood singled up the middle to put runners on first and third with one out. Kyle Mace then stepped up and slashed a double to centre, plating Rypien and Underwood to tie the game at two, before Firth’s heroics in the fourth. “Basically we’re just a bunch of guys from Trail and we competed against some pretty high level teams and we had UBC (Canada) scared, they were pretty nervous that we were going to beat them, and we could have,” said Maniago. Chris Kissock went the distance striking out 12 batters over nine innings, and giving up just one walk and seven hits. But the O’s bats couldn’t find the sweet spot as Canada’s tandem of Sean Callegari and closer Alex Graham shut them down, giving up just four hits in the game. In the end, it was Lewiston who came out on top, beating Team Canada 3-1 in the title-game

Monday. “It was a phenomenal tournament,” Lewiston coach Jeremiah Robbins told the Grand Forks Gazette. “Being the new coach you get to hear all summer about the great experience up here and they didn’t lie, it’s beautiful place to play and to come in with a really new group of guys, a new head coach and to come out of this with the title, I’m very impressed with how the kids handled it.” The Truckers swept through the money round with a 9-4 win over the Kamloops Sun Devils and a 6-2 victory over the Seattle Studs in the semi before besting Canada. The Orioles had a great start to the tournament, downing the San Diego Stars 4-2 in the first match on Friday. Chris Florko went 2-for2 at the plate with two RBIs, while Jordan Kissock was 2-for-3. Chris Kissock picked up the win, going eight-and one-third innings, striking out 10, with no walks and just seven hits. Aaron Cotter came on and struck out the final two batters for the save. The O’s then faced a stingy Thurston Senators team and despite a good effort on the mound by Scott Rhynold and Jordan Kissock, the Senators Jo Jo Howie kept Trail batters off balance all night, as he gave up just two hits and struck out six while walking four over six-and two-thirds. On Saturday, the O’s bounced back winning 6-3 over the North West Honkers. Cotter and Darrin Kissock teamed up for the win, as the O’s scored five runs in the final two innings to comeback from a 3-1 deficit. In the top half of the eighth, after Jordan Kissock singled in a run, Darrin Kissock’s double to left cashed in two runs to give the O’s a 4-3 lead. The Orioles added a pair of insurance runs in the top of the ninth to send them to the money round against Team Canada. Darrin Kissock went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs, while Joey Underwood was 3-for5 at the plate, and Jordan Kissock 2-for-4 with three RBIs. The GFI was a little richer this year, handing out $54,000 in prize money. The O’s banked a tidy $3,000 for its fifth-place finish, while the champion Truckers went home $20,000 richer.

The Club is holding its annual registration this week from 4-7 p.m. at the Greater Trail Community Centre until Friday, offering a variety of classes from pre-school to adult in recreational and competitive gymnastics.


Roster set for opening games BY TIMES STAFF The Trail Smoke Eaters will skate into the 2012-13 BCHL season this weekend with a good mix of returning veterans and young rookies. “I think we’re looking pretty strong,” said assistant coach Brent Heaven. “We definitely have two strong goaltenders and we’ve got a pretty solid D-core with a lot of veterans back there, and I think our top couple lines will be able to put some pucks in the net and we’ve got a lot of good role players, so things are starting to come together pretty well.” The Smokies will have three Greater Trail products to start the season including rookie forwards 16-yearold Mitch Foyle and Jake Lucchini, 17, from the Major Midget Kootenay Ice, as well as Scott Davidson, 17, who played last season with the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. The roster also features Kootenay products Adam Wheeldon of Nelson, Joren Johnson from Shoreacres and Kimberley native Brenden Heinrich who join returning Smokies and new captain Garrett McMullen and starting goaltender Lyndon Stanwood. Trail will begin the season with only five of the requisite six overage spots filled with forwards McMullen, Brent Baltus, Tyler Berkholtz, Merrimack commit Alex Holland and defenseman Djordje Leposavic. “Obviously, it’s really early in the season, and there is going to be a feel our process here and we’ll start working on systems this week, we like the group we have and happy with what we’ve to start the season

Not unreasonable to ask wife to help pay bills Dear Annie: Six months ago, I married a lovely young woman. While we were engaged, “Nina” and I had several candid discussions about finances, figuring that once we married, she would look for a job and we would split the household expenses evenly. Her parents were very generous and gave us a nice amount of money at the wedding in order to help smooth the transition until she found a job. Well, a few months after we married, Nina stopped looking for work. She suffers from chronic depression, and it got so bad that she refused to apply for a job, convinced that no one would hire her. She also refused to get counseling, saying she couldn’t afford it, even though both her father and I offered to pay for it. I have worked my best to keep a roof over our heads and have even taken out loans in



Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

order to pay our bills, but I’m now $1,000 in debt. Recently, Nina’s father gave her a large sum of money. I asked if she would use a small amount to pay one of our outstanding bills. She refused, saying that this was her money and she could spend it on whatever she wanted. Over the next week, that turned out to be fast food and cigarettes. Annie, was I unreasonable to ask for her financial help? -- New York Dear New York: Of course not. Nina apparently does not consider herself to be in a partnership. She thinks you should support

her. And it’s possible that Nina combats her depression by spending money, eating and smoking. Nonetheless, this is not a tenable solution. She should not use her depression as an excuse to refuse help. We urge you to get counseling on your own and also contact NAMI ( Dear Annie: I am pregnant with my third child. Prior experience compels me to send my list of things you should never do or say to a pregnant woman: 1. Do not ask whether the pregnancy was planned. It is absolutely no one’s business. 2. Hands off the belly. This is her personal space and should be respected. If you feel compelled to touch that elusive kick, always ask first -- and don’t be insulted when she says no. 3. Please don’t make comments that could be interpreted as “you’re fat.” My boss asked whether I was

having twins because I was so big. Another person asked if I was due before Christmas when my due date was mid-March. 4. Please don’t share unsolicited horror stories of labor and delivery. Expectant moms don’t need more to worry about. Also, while I feel genuine sympathy for those who have experienced a miscarriage, hearing these stories only induces anxiety in the mom-to-be, which isn’t good for her health or the baby’s. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to vent. -- Sharing the News in Pa. Dear Sharing: You’re very welcome. And congratulations on your upcoming blessed event. Dear Annie: This is in reply to “OverSeventy-Attitude,” who prefers handwritten notes and not emails. Years ago, when postage was cheap, none of us thought

anything of sending out lots of cards and greetings. These days, with postage being so high, people have to understand that if you’re living on a fixed income, those costs add up, especially during holidays when there are

lots of cards to send. I feel that the message contained within is what’s important, not whether the card is a physical object or an email. Making sure that your friends and family receive your warm thoughts is what

counts. Instead of chastising your friend for sending an email greeting, thank her for thinking of you and holding a place in her heart for you. -- Florida Greetings
