Status quo suggested for airport BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The draft Trail Regional Airport Economic Impact Assessment has recommended that if the airport was to maintain its existing advantage over nearby competing airports, it needs to enhance what it already has. Future decisions of expansion should be balanced with the minimal economic impact the airport held, advised the company hired to examine what direction to take with the facility, at a special presentation to the East End Stakeholders Committee Tuesday night in the regional district building. According to the report by Wave Point Consulting of Victoria, the “economic impact of the Trail airport based on input/output analysis is relatively small.” The low impact was primarily due to the relatively low level of passenger traffic, a “volunteer” business model used to operate the airport, and the relatively minor contribution that the small general aviation sector was able to generate. As a result of the study, the consultants urged extensive analysis of property tax impacts before any major infrastructure investment was made.

Census points to decrease of married couples in Silver City See figures for Greater Trail region on Page 3 BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

There’s a reason psychologists refer to families today as “nuclear.” Statistics Canada reported the changing tides of modern-day family compositions with new census data released on Wednesday. The ties of marriage, blood, or adoption, constituting a single household, interacting and intercommunicating with each other in their respective social roles as husband and wife, mother and father, or even son and daughter, brother and sister are creating a common culture in today’s society. “Some of the data suggests that if people live common law, they’re

not test-driving a marriage, they think it’s different,” said UBC sociology professor Mary Anne Murphy on Wednesday morning. “But I think the story is that it may not be, at least not in the near future and the question is at what degree does it mean that they will become aware of changes to family law . . . for their lives.” She noted that marriage has a solid foundation in Canada, despite the decline in marriages in the Greater Trail area. Married couples with and without children make up 69.5 per cent of families in Trail. That’s a decrease from the last census taken in 2006 when 72.8 per cent of couples were married. While common-law couples make up 13.8 per cent of the families, up from 2006.

“The new census is telling us – not that the new family is crumbling – but that new young couples choosing to couple up are far more likely to choose to go common law than to marry .” MARY ANNE MURPHY

“I don’t think (couples) are trying to buck tradition with common law, I think they really see it as a different family form,” she explained. “People are just getting married at an older age.” Across Canada, the percentage of married couples has dropped

over the last five years from 68.6 per cent to 67 per cent of all families. Couples living together without being legally married make up 16.7 per cent of all families across the country, an increase from the 2006 census when it was 15.5 per cent. “The new census is telling us—not that the new family is crumbling—but that new young couples choosing to couple-up are far more likely to choose to go common law than to marry,” Murphy concluded. Roughly 7.3 per cent of all families in Trail are couples living together with one or more children where at least one child is the biological or adopted child of only one of the parents. And a total of 1 per cent of children under the age

of 15 live with at least one grandparent instead of a parent. “Relationships seem to break apart and I can’t say it’s easy, I’ve been in a couple of relationships that have broken apart and I can’t say that it was ever easy,” said diaconal minister Keith Simmonds of the Trail United Church. “But I think people are perhaps less willing to live a life of pain and suffering if all they can see ahead of themselves is heartbreak and sorrow and incompatibility—I think they work really hard and when they realize that it isn’t going to result in anything better, then they’re not as willing as their grandparents were to sacrifice what they needed to in order to maintain a home for the children.”

“We don’t think we can see a reasonable scenario where you could grow sufficient user fees just from air traffic to cover your direct cost recovery,� said Wave Point’s managing director, Darryl Anderson. Some airports grow into a size where it is self sustaining and make a contribution to capital. “We don’t see that (for Trail), given the networks and the nodes around us and this type of air service.�

Because capital costs for airports are high, expanding the airport would mean Trail airport would lose some of the economic advantages it now has in providing low cost air service, and so it would no longer appeal to travelers. He said if the airport did grow, its business management model needed to be changed. “The volunteer model can only take you so far,� he said. He also cautioned against runway expansion—citing the hun-

dreds of thousands of dollars needed to do so—and aiming to replicate the success achieved by Pacific Coastal by adding another carrier to the airport. He said the nonunionized Pacific Coastal operation had the flexibility to alter flights and react to market and weather changes, and it would be hard for another carrier to reproduce that. “So if you think you can just find another (carrier), think twice, because unless you have that operational flexibility like Pacific Coastal, some of those other benefits you are now getting may not be realized,â€? he noted. “Going after new markets is great, but if you lose your core customer along the way and they slowly drift off ‌ you are not any further ahead. It’s an old business axiom that the customer you’ve got is cheaper to keep than a new one.â€?

Anderson said the airport needed to develop a low cost passenger facility if a decision was made to invest in a new terminal. The airport also needed to invest in better technical support for refueling and security. Warfield director Bert Crockett asked if the airport could be viewed as a dollar drain. “So people are getting on the plane here and taking their dollars out to Vancouver more than bringing them in?� he asked. Anderson said the airport wasn’t a dollar drain, because people value the outward mobility it provided. With four paid Pacific Coastal staff in Trail, and three volunteer positions, the employment income injected into the local economy was $409,253. The study noted that, based on 20,495 travelers in 2011, Pacific Coastal generated $4.4 million in revenue, fees

and taxes, nearly all of which ended up in the Lower Mainland. But the whole point of the airport was to improve Trail’s connection to outside services, said Phil Davies, one of the consultants. Although the draft report was received by the committee, discussion around the document’s findings will be dealt with in October. The committee passed a motion deferring future discussion of the study to allow “adequate time� for the service participants—including Trail, Rossland, Warfield, Fruitvale, Montrose, Area A and Area B—to review and consider the information provided in the report with their respective councils (where applicable). Regional district chief administrative officer John MacLean said there would be no capital works planned for the airport until after they discussed the report.

No data released on same-sex couples FROM PAGE 1 In fact, the percentage of people in Greater Trail who are divorced is 11.1 up from 9.8 per cent in 2006. While 16.9 per cent of families are headed by single parents: 13.1 per cent by single mothers and 3.8 per cent by fathers. Plus 3.4 per cent

of households have children aged 25 and over still living at home. Alternatively Statistics Canada reported Wednesday that it would not be releasing data on same-sex couples in geographic regions smaller than the country’s major metropolitan areas because of

concerns about the accuracy of the numbers in smaller communities. That means information about the same-sex population in Trail and its surrounding communities is not available for 2011, although it was released in 2006. —Files from Canadian Press

A&W opens doors today BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

Come meet the burger family. Castlegar’s A&W owners Shirley Henderson and Blaine Cantalouple opened the new Trail storefront today. “We are going to have a soft opening and will be fully staffed with trainers from A&W corporate to help our new employees if they run into trouble,” Cantaloupe said Wednesday. “And we are

going to have a grand opening at a later date.” The couple purchased the vacant lot from the Ferraro family early in the spring and began renovating immediately, initially hoping for a lateAugust opening. Highlights of the renos include putting a new facade on the outside, a new roof and changing the layout of the interior of the restaurant. Their busy location will certainly help the success for the

new business venture. And after the initial success of opening the Castlegar franchise in 1994, the couple deemed it worthwhile to expand their reach. “There are always obstacles with a new venture and this one is no different,” explained Cantaloupe. “But we have (had) very positive feedback in Trail from the City of Trail and from other businesses in town so we feel we made the right choice.”

Arsonist School district grapples strikes with $2.8 million deficit Stanley Park On extra teaching costs: “Again, it should have been tracked. We should have known about it.” In the case of the extra half million on facilities, he said in the course of working on one school project the district discovered more work was needed than anticipated. In sum, though, he said, “What we obviously have is a problem with tracking expenses during the year.” Now, the school board and staff must come up with a plan to tackle the issue, said Janzen, starting with a full assessment of what went wrong. They will also look at how much of the deficit is structural, as in ongoing costs, and whether the school district needs to be more realistic in its expectations in certain areas. Finally, they need a plan going forward, Janzen said. “And those things have to happen pretty quickly,” he added, targeting early October as when a deficit-recovery plan should be in place. The school district’s annual budget is about $60 million. Janzen said he hopes the provincial Ministry of Education will give the school district three years to recover the deficit, something it did a few years ago when New Westminster had a deficit of more than $3 million.


New Westminster News Leader

The New Westminster School District has a $2.8 million deficit from the 2011/12 school year, and the school board chair says much of the problem stems from a failure to properly track spending. It’s a very disappointing circumstance to find ourselves in,” said James Janzen on Wednesday. “We’re given a budget from the provincial government and it’s our duty to live within that, and now we’re going to have to deal with it.” The board already had a deficit of about $500,000 from the previous year that it had hoped to retire this year. Not only was this not achieved, this year the deficit grew another $2.2 million to reach the current grand total. Key drivers for the deficit’s growth, Janzen said, were overspending of about $500,000 each on the district’s online schools, general teaching costs, and maintenance and renovations on school district facilities respectively. In the case of the online schools, the hiring is done at the beginning of the year and the provincial grant comes in May, and is based on actual enrolment. In that case, Janzen said: “We should have been aware that enrolment was not where it was supposed to be.”

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER Vancouver fire officials confirm an arsonist struck not once, but twice, in Stanley Park, early Wednesday morning. Capt. Gabe Roder says a garbage can was set ablaze in the Malkin Bowl Road area at around midnight, but the more devastating blaze broke out 20 minutes later in Brockton Oval. He says the 85-yearold Brockton Oval pavilion has been hit and damage is estimated at $200,000. Crews had trouble fighting the fire in the old building, which was restored in 1987, because flames had worked their way into the roof. Police have been searching for a firebug since two blazes in the park earlier this year, including a deliberately set fire on June 22 that destroyed the replica station of the popular miniature train exhibit. No arrests have been made in connection with any of the fires.

of Salt Spring Island’s Island Wildlife Natural Care Centre said Tuesday family friends read about the turtle’s traffic trip, and her rescue to the centre, then called the owners. “They identified her by a spot of paint on her shell, and also sent lots of photos of Alf at home,” Ballerone told the News Leader Pictorial of the pet’s positive ID. “They came to Salt Spring Sunday evening for a happy family reunion.” Affable Alf — initially believed to be a male tortoise — has lived on the family’s farm near Lake Cowichan for 15-odd years. “Her family says

she was born in captivity from egg hood, and they have had her since she was small,” Ballerone said of the species at risk in its native Sahara region. “We understand Alf lives in a large enclosure with outdoor space where she has sunlight and all the grass she wants,” Ballerone said. “During a family gathering, one of the visiting children left the gate to her enclosure unlocked and she headed out on an adventure. “Her human family, Cody Bell and uncle Victor Gough, love her dearly and were relieved to learn she was safe.”

Canada’s modern family begins to emerge THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The nuclear family is no longer the norm in Canada. The mom-pop-andthree-kids-under-oneroof model that typified Canadian households of 50 years ago has morphed into a complex and diverse web of family ties involving living alone, re-marriage, stepchildren, emptynesters and multiple generations sharing a home. Statistics Canada has released the third tranche of new data from its 2011 census, this time portraying the changes in Canadian families and living arrangements over five decades. Married couples are in a long-term decline, single parenting has risen persistently, and families have gradually shrunk. The average family was 3.9 people in 1961, when the baby boom was in full swing. Now, it’s 2.9. “We do see more complexity and definitely more diversity in families,� said Statistics Canada demographer Anne Milan. For the first time, Statistics Canada says there are more people living alone in Canada than there are couples with children. Oneperson households now make up 27.6 per cent of all homes, a threefold increase since 1961 that is especially notable in Quebec. Meanwhile, couples with children have continued their decline, down to 26.5 per cent of all households, from 28.5 per cent in 2006. Just 10 years ago, couples with children under 24 years old made up 43.6 per cent


Betty Robinson (right) a senior lives with her adult daughter Nicole and her grandchildren Levi and Hunter, in Kitchener, Ontario this week. More of Canada’s 5 million seniors are staying together as couples in retirement, newly released census data shows. But the ravages of time eventually leave one partner - usually the woman. of all families (not including one-person households) - by far the most typical kind of family. Now, parents with children make up just 39.2 per cent of families, and a rising proportion of those parents are not officially married. The number of common-law couples surged almost 14 per cent between 2006 and 2011. For the first time in 2011, Statistics Canada also measured the number of stepfamilies in the country, showing that now one in 10 children lives in some sort of reconstituted arrangement. “The modern family is changing, and I think it’s a wonderful thing,� said Shannon Kennedy, an Ottawa-based wedding planner who finds herself on the front lines of fluctuating living arrangements on a daily basis. “The rules

of a nuclear family just don’t apply any more.� In 2011, the most typical family was a couple with no children, continuing a pattern spotted in 2006. Statistics Canada found that 44.5 per cent of families have no kids at home, partly reflecting the aging of the babyboomer bulge, the leading edge of which has started turning 65. Overall, there were 9.4 million families in Canada in 2011, a 5.5 per cent increase from 2006. Despite a growing population overall, the number of married couples declined outright by 132,715 over the past decade. Lone-parent families and multiple-family households, on the other hand, were on the rise. Single parents increased by 8.0 per

cent from 2006, and more of those parents were fathers - although eight out of 10 lone parents were still mothers. And for the first time, Statistics Canada zeroed in on children living in untraditional arrangements. In Canada’s firstever national count of foster children, the agency revealed that there were 29,590 of them under the age of 14 in 2011, with the highest predominance in Manitoba, where there is a high First Nations population. Overall, 29 per cent of the country’s foster children were younger than 5, and 30 per cent were between 5 and 9 years old. More than 17,000 households are involved in taking care of foster children, and more than half of those

households had taken in at least two kids. The pure numbers are only a start in figuring out how best to support some of the most vulnerable children in Canada, researchers say. But now that they are armed with better data, social scientists will be better able to determine the needs of foster children. What he needs to get a full picture is more data on how much money is flowing into the household - information that won’t come until next August. The census-takers also found that about one in 10 children under the age of 14 lived in some sort of stepfamily. But such families are so complex that Statistics Canada had to include several diagrams with its census documents in order to better explain where those children came from. Of the 3.7 million couple-families with children, 87.4 per cent are considered “intact,� with all the kids counted as the offspring of both parents. About 12.6 per cent were considered stepfamilies. Of those, 7.4 per cent were considered “simple� stepfamilies, in which all children are directly related to just one of the spouses. The rest of the stepfamilies are considered “complex.� More than half of them had three or more children. Stepfamilies were most common in Quebec, and least common in Ontario.

Statistics held back after last-minute discovery THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - An unexpectedly high number of same-sex marriages in places like the oilpatch left census-takers scratching their heads - until they realized many of the “couples� were only splitting the rent. As a result, Statistics Canada said Wednesday, it may have overestimated by as many as 4,500 the number of same-sex married couples in parts of the country. A last-minute discovery forced the agency to hold back some census data on gay and lesbian married couples when they realized they couldn’t be certain if some people were hitched or only roommates. So during Wednesday’s release of the latest tranche of census data, Statistics Canada only provided same-sex marriage numbers for the country’s larger cities and not for smaller communities, where the numbers might be off. It all amounts to an asterisk in the latest batch of numbers about same-sex marriage in Canada. “We observed that there was a possible over estimation of same-sex families,� said census manager Marc Hamel. “The counts for some smaller communities seemed too high.� None of this changes the fact that more and more of Canada’s gay and lesbian couples are tying the knot. Statistics Canada said same-sex marriage nearly tripled between 2006 and 2011. The census data also shows the number of samesex couples jumped 42.2 per cent during that same period. The agency counted 21,015 married gay and lesbian couples and another 43,560 in common-law relationships. That’s up from the 2006 census, which enumerated 45,345 of them - 7,465 married and 37,885 commonlaw. One possible explanation for the error is people who leave home for transient work in places like Alberta and Saskatchewan, Hamel said. 5)&,005&/":n4 05& &/":n4 0/-:

t risk of sounding like an old geezer, I must admit I’m not on the cutting edge of the plethora of technological innovations that are sprouting up faster than invasive weeds in the West Kootenay. I find every new innovation in technology, especially in terms of communication, is embraced by the salivating public faster than most people can truly digest it. Even as Apple unveils its latest IPhone, people still haven’t come to terms with the power of a lot of these communication tools. There are still politicians, athletes or celebrities making stupid comments on Twitter that eventually they have to apologize for. Idiots perform acts of vandalism or violence in front of cellphone cameras then are surprised or go into hiding when it’s posted online. Take it one step further and the entire robocall scandal unfolded thanks to the culprit. Pierre Poutine, starting things off with a phony cellphone listing. Now even our electoral process is put under the microscope. It has mushroomed to the

point where the impact that the world wide web has on society took an ugly twist in the Middle East last week. By now everyone is aware of the video uploaded to the Internet insulting the Muslim religion, which touched off riots across the world. How ironic that only two decades ago, the Internet was a new tool that allowed us to communicate instantly, have a library at our fingertips and bring the world to our desk. But even back then the genie was climbing out of the proverbial bottle. The Internet’s dark side began to unveil as it became a venue for mis-information, character assassination, cyber-bullying and the precipitous decline of civil conversation. Despite all its warts, it almost seemed worthwhile when the Arab Spring blossomed thanks to the ability of protesters to circumvent government controls and organize a movement that toppled decades-long dictators. People were finding a productive use for the technology. They were able to assemble and communicate freely without the presence of government forces lurk-


BERTRAND Times in Trail ing in the shadows. Suddenly the Internet and its benefactors were trumpeting all the good it could do around the world and the change it can prompt. That is until last week. In a case where one idiot can post a video that leads to death and destruction on the other side of the world is something we might find hard to grasp in North America. In our speed to embrace all things online, we have become desensitized to the abundance of garbage strewn along the electronic highway. From cute kittens to KKK propaganda to bullied bus monitors, it’s all out there for anyone to dig up if they so desire.

The thing about North Americans is that nothing we see shock us profoundly anymore. If anything, the anger unleashed over the video is another example of the chasm that still exists between the Western World and the Middle East. While we scratch our collective heads over the goings on in countries our forces have helped liberate, angry protesters see it as another slap in the face of their lifestyle that needs an immediate violent response. An interesting article in last weekend’s Vancouver Sun interviewed people who were held hostage for months or years by terrorists. In the end, they did not come to sympathize with their captors or understand their logic. Rather they simply accepted the fact that they will never understand the motivation behind blowing yourself up to disrupt a women’s rights rally or killing innocent people in the name of religion or in this case attacking U.S. embassies over a video. And that’s where it ended. There was no solution or no quick, simple answer. One can only imagine the impact the world wide

web will have in the future – both good and bad. To quote an American president and advice given to a superhero, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Who will take that responsibility? Or will the world wide web remain the Wild Wild West with no laws or boundaries? Do western governments take the leap and act as monitors? Would that inspire even more outrage at home? What is insulting to one person is often shrugged off by another. What passes as hate speech to one group is considered free speech by another group. Like the Middle East, the answers won’t come easy or soon. But what last week’s You Tube video once again proved, the indiscriminate abuse of the Internet, whether to incite hate, bully or attack, is a problem that won’t go away anytime soon. The genie is out of the bottle now. Our only wish now is that is can be used more for good instead of evil. Guy Bertrand is the managing editor of the Trail Daily Times

Letter not news nor fair comment It is with utmost concern I write regarding the letter to the editor published in the Trail Times, Thursday September 13, 2012 “Rossland council’s hiring cause for concern”. The author’s personal attacks are very hurtful and show a total lack of respect. It is very surprising the Trail Times would publish an unsubstantiated attack of a persons integrity and professionalism.

I wonder as to the author’s motivation. Has it anything to do with the fact the author could not bully, intimidate or manipulate the incoming CAO (and Rossland’s former CFO) while on Council, and now must sink to taking cheap shots through the media at a very qualified individual. Undoubtedly we all have the right to speak our mind,

undoubtedly there is also a responsibility that comes with that right. Who takes responsibility for the comments made in this letter to the editor that are meant only to damage a person’s reputation? This most distasteful ranting is neither news nor fair comment. Greg Granstrom Mayor of Rossland

No matter how strongly held his personal views – and that’s all they are, liberally sprinkled with conjecture and innuendo – there is no excuse for the denigration and outright character assassination exhibited in that letter. As a resident of Rossland I was embarrassed. It must be tough

to play the role of the interminable critic. Persistence is its own reward? Perhaps. On the other hand, what is it they say about continuing to do the same old thing and expecting different results? Perhaps Mr. Charlton will one day choose a more positive and constructive approach.

Should he do so he may find that people pay more attention. Meanwhile, Laurie old friend, as my wise old mum used to say: ‘Do unto others as you would have others do to you’. Welcome to the Mountain Kingdom Ms. Arnott; come join us on our journey. Graham Kenyon Rossland

Times overlooked local ‘Arctic Air’ link I was a bit irritated when I read the article on Pascale Hutton in the Trail Times on Friday September 14 (Creston actress ready to launch into second season of ‘Arctic Air’). Obviously you have a plethora of subscribers from Creston, and feel that an article a year on a Creston actress should keep them happy. Rosslander Kevin McNulty, also in the show, gets a brief

mention, which I guess should satisfy the one or two readers you have from Rossland. Kevin performed many times in shows on the Charles Bailey stage while living in Rossland. He played Joe in Showboat, and I remember his performance in Move Over Mrs. Markham. After becoming a professional actor, he appeared here in A Child’s Christmas In Wales, and also appeared in a Shakespeare

play, which I think was Twelfth Night, as part of the TSPA series. Over the years, I have probably seen Kevin two dozen times on television in movies, shows, and a commercial or two. It would be nice if the Trail Times would give a Rosslander maybe at least half as much coverage as a Creston actress. Bert Pengelly Trail

Rant hits a new low in civility Whatever happened to civility and respect? Laurie Charlton’s obsession with righting all the wrongs that he sees pervading the governance of Rossland is well known, but his diatribe of last week (“Rossland council’s hiring cause for concern” Trail Times, Sept. 13) represents a new low in the civility and respect department.




Pre-pay not a solution to gas-and-dash An editorial from the Toronto Star He was just trying to do the right thing, and it cost him his life. No wonder the death of 44-year-old Jayesh Prajapati has triggered so much sorrow and anger. Indeed, strong emotion is entirely justified. Here was an immigrant to this country, eager to share in the Canadian dream - working hard and hoping to get ahead for the sake of his family. Prajapati earned a masters degree in India, in chemistry, but couldn’t find a job in his field and was working at a gas station near Eglinton Ave. W. and Allen Rd. He considered it the first rung on a ladder to success, but would never climb higher. Prajapati was killed on Sept. 15 when he attempted to stop an SUV driven by a career criminal intent on stealing $112 worth of gas. He was dragged to his death as the vehicle sped away, leaving his wife Vaishali, 11-year-old son Rishabh, and a community to mourn. This needless death under-

lines the risks run by people working alone at night, in gas stations and convenience stores across the province. Premier Dalton McGuinty says his government will take “a long, hard look” at lessons that could be drawn from the tragedy. And Liberal MPP Mike Colle, who was on the scene shortly after Prajapati was killed, has some specific ideas. Colle has called for a new law that would allow suspension of a driver’s licence on being convicted of gas theft. Most U.S. states have provisions giving judges that discretion and it seems a reasonable measure. Employers are already forbidden from deducting losses due to gasoline theft from an employee’s paycheque and Ministry of Labour officials are looking into whether that was obeyed where Prajapati worked. If this rule was broken, more and better enforcement would be in order. But one well-intentioned reform is unwarranted - a law forcing motorists to pre-pay their fuel purchases. British Columbia

adopted that system after a gas station attendant was killed in a much-publicized “pump and run” incident in 2005. But it goes too far in limiting consumers’ options and burdening small gas stations. A modern pre-pay system, based on using credit cards at the pump, reduces inconvenience but cuts use of cash and makes customers less likely to enter a station’s convenience store area. That means higher costs to the operator, in the form of credit card fees, and fewer convenience store sales. And that’s on top of the cost of installing costly new pumps capable of handling credit card transactions. Many stations already use pay-first systems, especially in risky areas, but that should remain their choice, not a government order. And dedicated employees, like Prajapati, should receive more training so they don’t put themselves at risk when someone is stealing gas. No one’s life is worth a fillup.

‘Satanic Verses’ author dismisses latest death threat THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Salman Rushdie is dismissing the latest threat against his life as just talk. “This was essentially one priest in Iran looking for a headline,” the author of “The Satanic Verses” said Tuesday night as he spoke at a Barnes & Noble in Union Square before about 400 people, some just children when Iran’s Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in 1989 declared Rushdie’s novel was blasphemous and called for his death. Iran’s government has long since distanced itself from Khomeini’s decree, his fatwa, but anti-Rushdie sentiment remains. A semi-official Iranian religious foundation headed by Ayatollah Hassan Saneii has raised the bounty for Rushdie from $2.8 million to $3.3 million after recent protests against an anti-Islamic film that helped lead to riots around the Middle East. But Rushdie, who called the movie “the worst video on YouTube,” says Saneii has long offered a bounty and few people have taken him seriously. Rushdie said the threat was simply the latest product of the “outrage industry” and added that there is “no evidence” of people being interested in the bounty. His concern had been state-sanctioned death squads, “professional killers.” But the days of hiding are long over and he is free to walk the streets, stand on line in supermarkets and honour that old publishing ritual the author reading. Rushdie was discussing his memoir about the fatwa, “Joseph Anton,” which has just been published to strong reviews and encouraging sales. Security officials were present Tuesday at Barnes & Noble, but precautions were modest enough that Rushdie’s appearance was well publicized and you could enter the reading area on the fourth floor without having your bag checked. The greatest deterrent was the weather, whistling winds and pounding rain that at times pressed against the windows just behind Rushdie. Wearing a grey suit and no tie, the 65-year-old author sounded relieved, gratified and at home. This was a story with a happy ending, he said, although one that he would prefer to relive only on paper. “Joseph Anton” follows the abrupt turns in his life and career, from his swift rise in the early 1980s as the celebrated author of “Midnight’s Children” to his sudden notoriety as objections to “The Satanic Verses” intensified from protests to government sanctions. The book is named for the pseudonym Rushdie used while in hiding. Anton was for Anton Chekhov, the “poet of loneliness,” and “Joseph” for Joseph Conrad, who penned a motto Rushdie tried to follow: “I must live till I die.” Rushdie made it, but he remembered those who nearly didn’t, including the novel’s Norwegian publisher, shot three times in the back. That publisher not only pulled through, Rushdie observed, he made sure to order more copies of the book. Rushdie also thanked such loyal friends as Christopher Hitchens and the many booksellers in the U.S. who continued to stock the novel despite bomb threats and real bombs. “This was a shooting war,” he said. As he writes in “Joseph Anton,” Rushdie witnessed the very best and worst in people. He remembered being criticized by conservatives and even some liberals for causing his own trouble. Two marriages ended during his decade underground and publishers were reluctant to release the paperback of “Satanic Verses,” which became a bestseller for reasons Rushdie never imagined or desired.

Bronfman joins list of philanthropist families THE CANADIAN PRESS SEATTLE - Eleven more wealthy U.S. families, including Montrealborn Charles Bronfman, have pledged the majority of their wealth to philanthropy. A total of 92 American families have now committed to give half of their wealth to philanthropy by taking the “Giving Pledge,” initiated by billionaires Warren Buffett and Bill and Melinda Gates in 2010. The goal of the “Giving Pledge” is

to increase charitable giving in the United States. Bronfman now lives in New York. He was ranked by Forbes magazine in 2012 as the 13th wealthiest Canadian with a net worth of $2 billion. His family made its fortune from the Seagram spirits company. The most recent group of pledge signatories comes from diverse business backgrounds including technology, real estate, and finance.

When to retire not always in retirees’ hands THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - A new poll suggests many Canadian boomers could be surprised about the timing of their retirement. The Ipsos-Reid survey of people aged 50 or more found 62 per cent of the retired respondents had chosen the time when they left the workforce. The poll also found 20 per cent of retired respondents had only a month’s warning or less, while 42 per cent had less than six months notice

before they retired. By contrast, 85 per cent of the working boomers said they expected to have a choice about the timing of their retirement. Health was cited as the main reason for the timing of retirement, ahead of having enough money or being unhappy at work. The poll was limited to people with household assets of at least $100,000 and conducted by Ipsos Reid for RBC Royal Bank from Feb. 24 to March 12.

Sleep plays key role in weight loss THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Adequate sleep is a key component to dieting and maintaining a healthy weight, a growing body of scientific research suggests. In a commentary published in this week’s Canadian Medical Association Journal, two obesity researchers argue that the old formula - energy in must be lower than energy out - is too simplistic. “We tend to always talk about food and physical activity and we need to go beyond that to include what I call other non-caloric factors,” said JeanPhilippe Chaput, a specialist in preventive medicine who works on obesity in children at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, in Ottawa. “We know that obesity is very complex. It isn’t one-size-fits-all. People gain weight for different reasons. It’s not always an increase in food intake. It can be stress. It can be depression. Genes. Different factors.”

Inadequate sleep is among them, wrote Chaput and his coauthor, Dr. Angelo Tremblay, of the department of kinesiology at Laval University in Quebec City. It’s generally recommended that adults get seven to nine hours of sleep a night. Scientific studies are increasingly pointing to the role sleep - or the lack of it - plays in maintaining a healthy body weight. The evidence suggests inadequate sleep influences body weight in a number of ways. People who don’t get enough sleep are awake longer - no surprise there - and that gives them more time to consume calories. “It’s well known that television viewing stimulates food intake in the absence of hunger,” Chaput said. Studies have found that people who stay up watching television, for instance, are likely to snack. And generally speaking, they don’t nibble on steamed broccoli or celery sticks.

Chaput says a study showed people who go to bed late eat about 400 to 500 calories more a day than people who go to bed early and wake up early. But the influence of short sleep isn’t just related to the fact that it gives people more time to eat. Studies show that people who sleep for shorter periods produce more ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates the appetite. Inadequate sleep also puts the body under stress, creating higher levels of cortisol, a stress hormone. It’s well known that low-level stress makes people eat more, Chaput said. These hormonal changes can sabotage weight loss efforts, he suggested. “We know that short sleepers in general feel more hungry. And when we restrict calories in the diet of short sleepers, we know that if we already feel more hungry and you cut calories, hunger plus hunger means very hungry,” he said.

Les Furber had the pleasure of returning to Redstone to see how his creation has matured after designing it over three years ago.

Alpine architect returns to Redstone Furber celebrates Rossland golf course opening BY JIM BAILEY Times Sports Editor

Les Furber has always had a thing for dirt. Since his humble beginnings growing up on a farm in Tisdale, Sask., to his rise as one of the global giants in golf course design, his penchant for manipulating the good earth into some of the most impressive golf courses in the world is nowhere more aptly represented than at the Redstone Golf Course in Rossland. Furber returned to Rossland last week for Redstone’s grand opening ceremony, and to see how his work has evolved since its completion in 2009. “I think it’s incredible,” said Furber after taking a tour of the course Friday. “It’s a difficult piece of land to work on and not all the best soil conditions, but the people who have been involved in management here have done a miraculous job in getting it mature and this is the best time to see it when it’s like this. It’s what we always hoped it would be so I think we’ve attained what we wanted.” Since 1980, Furber’s Canmore company, Golf Design Services, has designed and constructed golf courses throughout Europe, Canada, South America, the Caribbean, and the U.S. From 1966-1980, Furber honed his designing sensibility working with the “father of modern golf-course design” Robert Trent-Jones Sr. where he developed his visual style and empathy for the average golfer.

“It was a process of learn-to-do by doing,” said Furber. “And I have been in the right place at the right time, and have had some wonderful pieces of property to work with, and that’s been sort of the story of my success.” Furber’s courses abroad include a 45-hole track commissioned by the King of Morocco, called DarEs-Salam, Valderrama in Spain - the site of the 1997 Ryder Cup, the Geneva Golf Club in Switzerland, the Pevero Golf Club on the island of Sardinia, the first 18-hole course in Varadero, Cuba, as well as courses in the Czech Republic, Belgium, Poland and Germany, not to mention classic western Canadian courses like Predator Ridge, Gallagher’s Canyon, The Quail, Hyde Mountain, Storey Creek in Campbell River, Salmon Arm, Banff Springs (redesign), Kananaskis, and Canmore’s Silver Tip. The prolific golf-course architect has also stamped his creative signature on courses throughout the Kootenays, including the Balfour Golf Club, Christina Lake, Golden, Radium Resort Springs, Cranbrook’s Bootleg Gap and St. Eugene Mission, and Kimberley’s Trickle Creek. He has developed over 30 golf courses in B.C. alone and has a definite affinity for alpine terrain and the challenge the rough topography poses. “The alpine are my favourite golf courses, and this (Redstone) is one of them. Because of the exhilarating golf shots, the beautiful back drops, every time you create a golf hole you have a different mountain backdrop.” Redstone, like other mountain courses,

already has built in features, says Furber. “The beautiful thing here is that it became an instant landscape. We carved it out of a forest, we didn’t have to plant any trees here, we didn’t need to, they were already here. So it already has that look of being here a long time, and now wer’e celebrating 90 years.” The Furberization of B.C., as many call it, looks to combine a strong balance of playability and challenge, with visually stunning holes, elevation change, and natural hazards that are punitive but not intimidating. The design approach is innovative, visionary, and, with today’s ever-changing ecological regulations, environmentally sensitive. While the personable 66-year-old credits the assistance of Redstone developer Robert Felsch and manager Cary Fisher for facilitating his design team with their intimate knowledge of the landscape, Felsch joked at the ceremony Friday that Furber would listen to their input with interest and then do things his own way. “We realized after the first nine holes that Les’ ideas were a whole lot better than ours,” said Felsch. The resulting golf course fits the landscape to a tee, and is a great addition to the area for both players and the Greater Trail community, a positive step towards the full development of Redstone. “I think the longevity of the (Redstone) golf course, it will have its own magnetism and draw people here to play and most people will walk away very happy after playing a round of golf here, and that is the most satisfying thing for me,” added Furber.

WHL prep for lock-out season THE CANADIAN PRESS


The Gill and Gifts Randy Zelonka rewards the winners of the biggest and most fish with some beautiful trophies and prizes thanks to all the sponsors that pitched in to make the Kids Pikeminnow Derby on Kootenay Lake a great success.

Young anglers hook up on Kootenay BY TIMES CONTRIBUTOR Young fishers flocked to Kootenay Lake earlier this month for the The Gill and Gift’s annual Pikeminnow Derby. The fun annual fish-for-all saw 62 youngsters between the ages of one and 15 angle for the coveted trophies provided by Van Hellemond Sports. The day started at 7 a.m. when the children came in for their free maggots supplied by Mike’s Bait, and any tackle they needed, as well as bottled water from Safeway. They fished until around 1:30 p.m. and with tired arms and full creels, came in for the official weigh in and count. Sponsors helped make the day a huge success. Everyone enjoyed hot dogs courtesy of Balfour Superette, pop, and cookies from the Old World Bakery. The kids were entertained by Bobby the Safety Boat supplied by Garth and Lee from the Coast Guard Auxiliary. Bobby announced the winner of the grand prize which was a four-hour West Arm charter donated by Splitshot Charters. The lucky winner

was Kaitlyn MacKay from Fruitvale, while the category winners were as follows: Largest Fish: First place went to Isabella Stykel of Fruitvale for her two-pound, seven-ounce northern pikeminnow, while Cole Styckel came second with a two-pound, one-once lunker, and third to Freddie Taylor of Trail for his one-pound, eight-once trophy. Most Fish: The winner of the most fish landed went to Rachael Erickson of Balfour with a whopping 69 pikeminnow. Ian Mayer of West Kelowna came second with 54 totaled, and Alyssa Hermansen of Balfour was third with 45 caught. All the kids received participation prizes from generous sponsors like The West Arm Outdoors Club, The Jack Rilkoff family of South Slocan, Grays Contracting, Cedar Glen Campground, Nelson City Police Fish derby, Eagleview Par 3, Ainsworth Hot Springs, Balfour Auto body, Kokanee Park Store, Save on Foods and many many more.

a year ago. “Kootenay seems to restock themselves every year and they’ve got Sam Reinhart, who is one heck of a player,” he said. After finishing on top in 2011, the Ice made the playoffs in 2012 but were swept in the first round by Edmonton. They still have a potent weapon in the person of centre Reinhart, brother of Oil Kings’ defenceman Griffin Reinhart, fourth pick overall in this year’s NHL draft. Sam is already rated as one of the top picks for the 2014 draft. But big brother Griffin is still in the Oil Kings lineup, as are seven other NHL draft picks, including goaltender Laurent Brossoit. The Ice lost six-foot-five goaltender Nathan Lieuwen to the Buffalo Sabres in the off-season and Sam’s talented brother Max Reinhart to the Calgary Flames. Left-wingers Jesse Ismond, 55 points last season, and Joe Antilla, 44 points, both turned 21 and had to leave the WHL. So Kootenay is looking to do some rebuilding. The Oil Kings have been forced to make a few changes as well. “We lost Tyler Maxwell (21), we lost Kristians Pelss, who was signed by the Oilers, and we lost Rhett Rachinski and Jordan Peddle (both 21),” said Laxdal. There are always trades to be made but right now they’re watching their crop of young players to see how they develop. So far, up-andcoming stars like Curtis Lazar, part of the under-18 team that won the Ivan Hlinka tournament again this year, are looking pretty good. “Some of the kids who were in the third and fourth line last year have moved up,” Laxdal said. “Guys like Curtis Lazar, guys like Mitch Moroz and our new import, Edgars Kulda. “We’ve had a couple of 16-yearolds who really stepped up this year. No. 96 is Brett Pollock . . . He’s a big centreman who will give us some depth and then, obviously, Dyson Mayo on the back end.” Another Eastern Conference team from the East Division, the Saskatoon Blades, is also loading up on talent as it tries to capitalize on its position as host of this year’s Memorial Cup. The Blades play the Raiders in Prince Albert on Friday in one of eight games that night as the season gets rolling in earnest.

With no NHL hockey, at least for now, the Western Hockey League could be heading for a brisk year at the box office. It’s already flexing on-ice muscle with the major impact its players are having on Canada’s junior teams and in the NHL draft. “Obviously, we all hope the NHL is back playing as quickly as possible, it’s important for the game,” said WHL commissioner Ron Robison. “Right now, we don’t see a real significant impact to start the season but, should this be an extended lockout, then perhaps as the season progresses we’ll see more coverage and more attendance.” In the last full-season lockout in 2004-05, the Saskatoon Blades say they saw an increase of as much as 30 per cent in attendance. That would be especially welcome for some smaller cash-strapped franchises. Just like the NHL, the WHL has issues with some of its smaller markets, admits Robison, but he believes the model is working for the most part. “We always have the challenge of the smaller markets competing with larger markets in our league and ensuring that we have a business model we can live with,” he said. The regular 2012-13 WHL season starts Thursday, with the Kootenay Ice visiting Montrose native Luke Bertolucci and the Edmonton Oil Kings. Still loaded with future NHL talent (eight draft picks), last year’s WHL champion Oil Kings look like the team to beat again this season for the Ed Chynoweth Cup. But coach Derek Laxdal isn’t looking that far ahead. “We’ve got five or six new players on our lineup this year and, like any team, you’re going to pick up injuries and you’ve got to go through the course of the season, so your journey’s going to be a lot different than it was last year,” he said. He’s still pretty happy with what he sees coming out of the pre-season. “We feel that where we are right now, at this part of the season, we’re stronger than we were last year.” Central Division rival Kootenay that doesn’t appear to have the same depth this season, but Laxdal notes the Ice won the championship just

Don’t offer suggestions to son’s rude fiancé MAILBOX

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

note saying we would be happy to help with the wedding preparations. After two weeks, I asked my son whether the gift had arrived. He said, “Yes. It’s sitting on the table. She hasn’t got around to opening it.” A day later she sent an e-mail that said, “I will be making my own decisions about the wedding.” No mention of the gift. Last week, the two lovebirds came to a family event at our home. I mentioned to Nicole that I have an antique bridal veil that is a family heirloom, and I would be honored to let her borrow it if she wished. She said it was “too old-fashioned.”

not because I don’t wish to date, but because I don’t want to just go through the motions. I am close to my children and family members, and I know they care about me and don’t want me to be alone. The problem is, they constantly say, “You must lower your standards if you want to find someone.” What are my standards? Simply put, I have no desire to be with someone I am not physically attracted to. They don’t think this should matter, and maybe they have a point, but it’s my decision. I have no problem waiting for the right person and realize it may never happen. I love my family and don’t want to hurt their feelings. Other than rudely telling them to “butt out,” how can I get them to stop? -Enough Dear Enough: As long as you understand that you may be missing out on some terrific partners for superficial

reasons, this is entirely your choice. It is not rude to say, “I know you love me and mean well, but I need to make my own decisions, whether you agree or not. Please stop commenting on my social life.” Dear Annie: I read

the letter from “Omerta in New York,” who sent a monetary gift to a friend in financial straits, insisting that he use it to buy a “luxury” item. She was offended when he used it to pay an outstanding bill. I wonder whether she

ever considered that, to her friend, knowing he would have electricity or telephone use for the next month might be a luxury. Ending their 40-year friendship over this is certainly her loss. -- Cherish Your Friends

Our son shrugs off Nicole’s behavior. I understand that marrying her is his choice and not ours. Are we approaching this wrong? -- Perplexed Parents Dear Perplexed: No, you have been very accommodating. Nicole simply seems rude and unkind, and the relationship will not get better unless your son demands it. Please continue to be welcoming, but back off a bit so she doesn’t feel smothered. Don’t make suggestions or offer opinions about the wedding. She is not receptive or appreciative. Instead, find things to compliment about her plans so she is less insecure about her status and taste. Nicole is likely to be a difficult daughter-in-law. Our sympathies.

Dear Annie: Our son has been dating “Nicole” for several years. She has two teenage daughters from a previous marriage. Although they live several hours from us, my husband and I have done everything to make “Nicole” feel welcome. Last Christmas, she and her daughters opened their gifts, tossed them aside and went to watch TV. In May, I sent her a Mother’s Day card wishing her a nice day with her kids. She responded with an e-mail saying that since her mother passed away, she no longer celebrates Mother’s Day. A month later, she was in an accident and spent a few days in the hospital. We sent flowers and wishes for a speedy recovery. Our son said the flowers were not her favorite so she threw them out. Two months ago, my son proposed to Nicole. We sent a nice engagement gift with a

Thursday, September 20, 2012 Trail Daily Times


YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Friday, Sept. 21, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’ll love discussing profound topics like philosophy, religion and issues about foreign culture with other people today. In fact, if you can travel anywhere, by all means do so. Expand your world! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good day to divide shared property or discuss how to share things; however, be careful. Don’t give away the farm. (People feel generous today, including you.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) All your dealings with others will be unusually warm and friendly today. It’s a particularly good day to enjoy the company of partners and close friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work relations with customers and co-workers are very upbeat today. Workrelated travel also is likely.

Enjoy whatever you’re doing. (Ask others for help.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a playful, romantic, fun-loving day! Enjoy sports, movies, vacations, romantic diversions and playful activities with children. Look for ways to express your own creative talents. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You’ll enjoy entertaining at home today. In fact, all family gatherings or interaction with relatives will be mutually generous and upbeat. (Why not take advantage of this?) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although the dust is still settling from yesterday, today you feel optimistic about life. Because of this, you will be unusually effective at selling, promoting, writing, teaching or acting. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Be careful shopping today. It’s very easy to go over-

board, financially speaking. If you’re pondering a major purchase, give it a sober, second thought. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a feel-good day! It’s easy to be generous to others, although you might not feel like working. You simply want the freedom to do your own thing. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You won’t mind putting the

welfare of others before your own today because you’re feeling unusually magnanimous. It’s easy to give to others -- both your time and money. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) All group activities will be upbeat and enjoyable today. People are in a good mood, and everyone feels friendly toward each other. Accept all invitations!

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) When dealing with authority figures today, don’t promise more than you can deliver (you will be tempted to do this). Remain realistic despite your eagerness to please and confidence that you can do so. YOU BORN TODAY You’re concerned with social issues and like to keep abreast of the times. You’re always fascinated by what others do.









You’re modern in other ways as well, including your dress and your lifestyle. You value beauty and aesthetics and are intrigued by secrets and mystery. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big! Birthdate of: Bill Murray, actor; Stephen King, writer; Maggie Grace, actress. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Grand Forks residents will see an increase in monthly garbage fees by a dollar in the next billing period. City councilors approved Bylaw 1927, the residential garbage collection rates and regulations amendment bylaw, on Sept. 4 in response to the increase of tipping fees and the new green bin program. “We were going to have to look at the rates anyway because the landfill tipping fees have gone up,� explained Lynne Burch, Grand Forks’ chief administrative officer. “We also had to look into accommodating the green bin but it’s a very minimal increase.� The residential garbage collection service will go from $9

That’s down from 1,018.625 last year, but up from up from 988.275 in 2010. However, only 85 students are heading to kindergarten and 109 will graduate this year. But that kindergarten count is 15 students higher than last year when only 70 students enrolled for their

Food scraps include baked goods, eggs and eggshells, cheese, seafood shells, candy, fruit pits, fish bones, meat. “We had to add the definition for food scraps recycling in there so it wouldn’t be considered garbage anymore,� Burch explained. “It will be considered food scraps recycling that goes into the green bin.

Clarifying the confusion around which fuel to use


s the price of fuel continues to rise many of you using premium fuel are tempted by the lower cost of regular or mid grade fuel. What fuel do you need? What is the consequence of not using the premium fuel you are currently using? Initially your ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manual should be your guide for what kind of fuel your vehicle needs. It is all about octane rating. Our premium fuel is 91 AKI ((RON+MON)/2). What the heck does that mean? AKI means anti knock index and this is the number you will see under or near the button you press on the pump. This is the Canadian and US method of displaying octane rating. Note that this method is an average of two other methods;

octane fuel or tolerate lower octane fuel. If an engine is designed for the lower or 87 octane fuel there is virtually no benefit to the use of the higher octane fuel. For your mechanic the knock sensor has added a new dimension to tuning up your vehicle. A good scan tool will allow your mechanic to check how optimally tuned your vehicle is. Many owners will not recognize the few reduced degrees of advance resulting from a carboned up engine. They also may not recognize the lack of knock limit timing control when the knock sensor is not functioning at all. Only a computer scan will determine that.

erally optimized for regular (87) or premium (91) fuel. Prior to the eighties using regular fuel in an engine designed for premium would very likely result in engine destruction. Enter electronic spark control ignition and the knock sensor. Knock sensor technology allows the engineer to tune engines very close to the knock limit. When low octane fuel is used in a high octane design the knock sensor will force the ignition system to reduce spark advance at the onset of knock. Reduced spark advance will lower both the power produced and the fuel economy but it will save the engine. Knock sensor technology has therefore allowed engine designs that will make the most of high

tion where too much spark advance will result in spark knock. This is known as the knock limit. The knock limit is to some extent determined by the octane rating of the fuel. The higher the octane rating the more spark advance allowable. The more spark advance, the more power and better fuel economy. Higher octane fuel is therefore a win win situation. When designing a spark ignited internal combustion engine for a particular vehicle the engineer will be faced with many trade offs. Cost of the design will always be one but the other is a concern for the cost to the future owner. One of the significant costs to the new owner is the cost of fuel. The engine design is gen-
