United Way campaign nears halfway mark Local chapter sets goal of $85,000 BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff

A healthy lunch for a needy child or much-needed dental work for a struggling senior all begin with the work of one organization - the United Way. The organization has a goal of helping everyone in a community from its youngest citizen to the oldest and everyone in between. But that generosity does not begin at its office, it begins with each and every resident willing to help. The United Way of Trail and District is nearing the halfway mark of its 2012 campaign and is 40 per cent towards its goal of raising $85,000. Naomi McKimmie, the

executive director for the Trail district branch, saluted all the volunteers, donors, businesses and sponsors that have brought the campaign to this point. “The campaign runs all year but the main portion is from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31,� she explained. McKimmie credited the success of this summer’s Park With Us campaign and the United Way Day in the Park in helping boost its fundraising efforts heading into its crucial months. This year’s total is the same as 2011, which helped 16 organizations by sharing over $55,000. And those programs include some that help people simply make it through a day healthy and happy. “One prime example is the

Healthy Schools meal program,� said McKimmie. “That is one of the largest things that we help fund yearly. Every elementary school at the southern end of the school district benefits. “Our money goes from Rossland to Genelle to Fruitvale. That’s where the money raised at our United Way office stays.� Another example is the Dental Access Fund for emergency dental work for individuals of any age. Those are two of a myriad of programs that benefit from the United Way’s efforts and the generosity of local citizens. “It takes a village to raise a child,� said McKimmie, repeating an old adage. “But it also takes a village to create a village.�

She explained the United Way is moving from an umbrella organization, which helped a variety of at-large groups, to a more communityimpact model. “We are getting more involved in community groups,� she said. “But we’ll continue to fund the organizations that we normally fund year-to-year.� To bolster the coffers to help more groups, the organization is hoping to create an endowment fund. “We’re hoping within the next year, to solicit corporations and businesses to begin the endowment fund. The interest from that fund would be used for community groups. “So if we can build the endowment fund, the more

Three years of unpaid property taxes came with a bidder end. The annual property tax sale, held in the form of a public auction, took place in September across the Greater Trail region. The annual sale allowed municipal governments to collect outstanding property taxes by imposing a one-year period of grace for owners to “redeem� the property after the sale. During the allotted time frame the previous owners can re-gain property titles by paying overdue payments (taxes) and interest rates. However, the one-year period is subject to further conditions imposed by city council. In the past, Trail council had extended the period of tax sale to one year, giving homeowners another chance to clear their debt and their name. In keeping with that, earlier this month city council passed third reading on a bylaw to hold on title the deed to the 12 properties that were in arrears on taxes and were up in the tax sale. The nature of the sale confused Mayor Dieter Bogs and he asked Trail chief administrative officer David Perehudoff if—during the tax sale—he bid the amount owing in back taxes, would he automatically purchase a house for the amount owing on the back taxes. Perehudoff said no. “So why is it a tax sale if you can’t buy it, anyhow?� Bogs countered.

ROSSLAND

Celebration postponed Downtown opening set for Nov. 3 BY TIMES STAFF Good things come to those who wait. And for those itching for the unveiling Rossland’s renovated downtown, the wait will be a little bit longer. Due to this week’s snowfall and slight delays in the final phases of construction, the Downtown Rossland Celebration will now be held on Nov. 3. “Although it was a difficult decision to reschedule, we want to ensure a safe and completed downtown for all to enjoy,� says Rossland Mayor, Greg Granstrom. “There are only a few final touches to be added, but we feel it’s prudent to wait until November 3rd.� Volunteers are still needed, so please contact Renee Clark at the Rossland Chamber of Commerce at 250-362-5666 to join the fun.

LOCAL High school debater City can bid on titles cracks top-15 in Canada FROM PAGE 1

There are two issues with respect to the upset price, said Perehudoff, which is the amount owing the city as registered on the title. The city can act as the primary bidder and their policy is to bid up to 75 per cent of the assessed value of the home. To become the purchaser of a tax sale home, a bidder other than the city would have to bid 75 per cent plus one dollar to hold the title. “But with respect to purchasing, you are not technically purchasing the property,” said Perehudoff. “You are just effectively registering notice on title … to have the right to own it if the person does not effectively pay the upset price (of their taxes owing).” The mayor asked when a bidder would get the house if they won the bid. “You would have the house on title with your name registered there, and if the person did not

BY BREANNE MASSEY Times Staff

Joining a debate team is more about learning than it is about competing, but a Fruitvale teen can speak on both accounts. Jesse Bartsoff, 16, recently placed 14 out of 56 students at the Sr. Canadian National Debate Seminar held in Toronto on Oct. 11-14. Bartsoff joined the debate team at J. L. Crowe three years ago, and this fall he was one of 10 province-wide competitors to attend nationals. “There were (students) from every province almost,” he said. “From B.C. there were 10 people and I was the only one outside of the lower mainland.” But instead of hiring a private coach like many other competitors, Bartsoff relied solely on Crowe’s librarian Marilyn Lund and his independent studies. Bartsoff joined the debate club in Grade 9 because he was interested in public speaking and learning about current events. Three years later, he’s considering getting into law or politics. “I just kept going and I’ve (become) more interested,” Bartsoff said. “Most of (the club) went to provincials in March and from there I qualified to go to the National Seminar in Toronto.” Bartsoff was an alternate until about three or four weeks ago when he was called to step up to the plate, according to Lund. He was right in there,” she said. “He was so excited. “Our kids don’t get private coaches like some of the other competitors, most of the time we’re holding bake sales to try to

pay the upset price within the year, you would effectively have the property,” said Perehudoff. If the property is not redeemed during the one-year period, the collector registers new owners at the Kamloops Land Title and Survey Authority. There were originally 28 properties advertised for sale in Trail but that number was reduced to 12 after 16 landowners cleared up their payments. There were also two properties in each Warfield, Montrose and Fruitvale. However, all property owners cleared up their taxes before the date of the sale. “So that was a good thing,” said Fruitvale chief administrative officer Lila Cresswell. “Everybody has paid their taxes.” All sales were held in their respective council chambers. If a bidder fails to provide a certified cheque or cash payment in full, the collector again offers the property for sale.

The national seminar in Toronto was impromptu, students got the topic and had a mere 15 minutes to prepare and then debate it. But Bartsoff was confident about how to prepare for the prestigious event. “It comes down to getting your background knowledge, reading Maclean’s (magazine) and knowing all about the currents events because an impromptu can be anything and you just have to be prepared for whatever,” Bartsoff said. “In Toronto it was done in British Parliamentary style so it’s actually different from what we do around here.” British Parliamen-

tary hosts four teams with a government side and an opposition side, and each of those have a closing and an opening. That means four teams of two people … have to bring up their sides that counteract each other but then also have teams within teams. “But around here we do CNDF which is the Canadian National format or cross formats so it’s a lot more direct,” he said. “There’s not a whole group of people.” The Pumpkin Classic Debate will take place at Rossland Secondary School on Nov. 3. It begins at 9:30 a.m. and will have three rounds of inter-regional competitors between Grade 6 and 12.

money we’ll have for helping those groups.” She emphasized that all the money raised stays local and people can even designate certain programs. “The United Way all across Canada is extremely big on if you want your money to go to a specific designation, that’s where it goes.” There are some limitations and she suggests contacting the United Way office for more details. But the bottom line is to help as many people as possible. The 2012 campaign has already been through a successful September and October is designated as a month to focus on workplace donations. November will see the organization promote its annual raffle, which includes airfare for two to Vancouver with Pacific Coastal, and will culminate with the draw during the Rekindle the Christmas Spirit celebration in Rossland in December. The entire goal of the campaign is to help the community and to that end Thursday was the deadline for groups to submit funding applications. “The organizations that apply for funds go through an interview

Gulf Islands. Some of the old meters remain in locations around the province, either because they are inaccessible or because owners have refused them. While BC Hydro owns the meter, the base and connections are part of the owner’s electrical system and can be placed anywhere. In some cases, garages or decks have been built over meters, and if they can’t be read, the bill is based on an estimate until a wireless meter is installed. Manual meter readings will be checked against automatic readings during the testing phase, to verify accuracy. Verschoor said there have been six meters replaced due to inaccurate readings or other defects, but generally the new meters are more accurate, and they eliminate human errors in reading or entering data required for mechanical meters. “All of our meters have to be certified by Measurement Canada,

which is a consumer protection agency, just like the pump at the gas station and the scale at the grocery store,” she said. Verschoor said only two customers out of more than one million have opted to have the meter located away from their home. Those who refuse for whatever reason have their installation placed “on hold” while their concerns are addressed by BC Hydro. After media reports of fires associated with the program, BC Hydro commissioned a study of residential fire reports by Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis and researcher Joseph Clare. It shows that electrical fires have declined since the installation of new meters began. Damaged meter sockets are usually the owner’s responsibility, but BC Hydro inspects them at the time of install and offers to fix them at no charge if they are damaged. So far, 1,200 meter bases have been replaced.

Moose takes on cop car THE CANADIAN PRESS PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - In this case of moose versus Mountie, the officer and his car - got the worst of it. RCMP say the officer was writing a report in his car in Prince George, B.C., on Thursday when he saw two moose crossing an intersection. The Mountie moved his car to try to stop another vehicle heading towards the animals when the bull moose rammed the front grill and bumper of the police cruiser before climbing over the hood and onto the roof. The moose was stomping the roof when one of its hooves shattered the driver’s side window and hit the officer. Police say the moose then walked down the trunk of the vehicle before making its getaway with the other moose. The officer suffered a bruised left shoulder.

Supreme Court upholds election results Harper hints at updating election law THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper is prepared to look at updating Canada’s election law after a divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a Conservative MP legitimately won his seat in 2011 despite numerous procedural irregularities. Harper said he’s “very happy� that the top court, by a slim 4-3 margin, affirmed Ted Opitz’s razorthin, 26-vote victory in the Toronto riding of Etobicoke Centre over Liberal incumbent Borys Wrzesnewskyj. Nevertheless, he did not dismiss out of hand Liberal calls for an overhaul of the Canada Elections Act to keep pace with technologydriven abuses and what they described as more brazen dirty tricksters. “Obviously, we’ll always take a look at a law - as you know, we promised to look at some reforms to our election laws,� Harper

said on his way out of the House of Commons, accompanied by a smiling Opitz. “But in this case, the important thing is that it was the voters who made the decision and that’s the way a democracy is supposed to work.� Elections Canada had no immediate comment on the ruling, other than to say the watchdog agency would “take time to carefully review� the decision. However, chief electoral officer Marc Mayrand has said in the past that he may recommend changes in the law to better regulate the use of technology, such as automated call centres and the massive voter identification data bases amassed by parties. He’s also said the law needs to be changed to ensure exorbitant legal costs don’t prevent individuals from challenging dubious election results. Wrzesnewskyj reportedly spent as much as $300,000 in his legal battle to overturn the May 2011 results in Etobicoke Centre.

He won an Ontario Superior Court ruling that set aside Opitz’s victory because of procedural irregularities with 79 ballots, most involving missing or improperly filled out forms for voters who were not on the voters’ list or had no identification. Opitz appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court. The high court overturned the lower court ruling because it said 59 of those rejected votes should have been allowed to stand. That means Opitz essentially won his seat by a mere half dozen votes. An election official’s failure to follow a procedural safeguard is not sufficient to invalidate a vote cast by an individual who was otherwise qualified to vote, the

court ruled. That approach gives effect to “the underlying Charter right to vote, not merely the procedures used to facilitate that right,� justices Michael Moldaver and Marshall Rothstein wrote for the majority. “We reject the candidate’s attempt to disenfranchise entitled voters and so undermine public confidence in the electoral process,� they continued - a line that was repeated several times by Conservative MPs later in the day in the House of Commons. The three-justice minority, meanwhile, led by Chief Justice Beverley McLachlin, argued that the procedural requirements are “fundamental safeguards for the integrity

of the electoral system.� Procedural irregularities other than those that are “merely technical or trivial� should be sufficient to invalidate a vote, they said. In a statement, Opitz thanked the court. “As the court decision confirmed, a fair election took place, the result was clear, was then confirmed on a recount and the result has now been endorsed by the Supreme Court of Canada,� he said. The court found that Elections Canada officials may have made some administrative errors when they registered new voters on election day, but concluded those errors did not ultimately have an impact on the final result.

Marc Marcolin, a former Trail mayor and Cominco executive, could easily just put his feet up and rest on his past accomplishments, or even his age. But, at 93, Marcolin still wants to contribute to his community and share in the fellowship of the club. He takes a keen interest in Rotary affairs and recently was part of a special committee looking into how to staunch the club’s decline. As I stood in line behind him waiting to order, I was thinking about how we don’t produce enough Marc Marcolins anymore when I was diverted by another modern reality – an abundance of choice, which at times can be overwhelming.

Marc ordered one of the egg-and-other-stuff options and wanted some minor variation, which set off a flurry of questions and button pushing from the server. Since, like some other aging Rotarians, myself included, he doesn’t hear as well as he once did, this proved problematic. “Do you want to make that into a full breakfast?’ “Pardon, me?” “Do you want white, brown or multigrain toast?” “What was that?” “Do you want regular or decaf?” “In a mug or paper cup?” “Do you want room for cream?” Do you want your eggs on the side, on the floor or out the door? It went on like this for what seemed like five minutes until I practically shouted at the attending supervisor (I am never at my best when my blood sugar is low, and my best isn’t that great anyway.) “just give the guy his breakfast before we all die of hunger!” Head into a modern supermarket or other large retail outlet and it

gets even more bizarre. One side of entire supermarket isles are devoted to products such as potato chips and their variations or soda pop and juices, while tea and coffee can take most of an other isle. And our local stores are small in comparison to their big city cousins. I once stumbled into the men’s sock department at Macy’s flagship store in Manhattan and was stunned to see an expanse of grey, black, and argyle the size of a hockey rink. While choice is the basis of a free market and society, and most people prefer options to no choice, sometimes it can all be

exhausting. Research cited in the Economist found that when supermarket shoppers were offered half a dozen tasting samples and a discount coupon they were 10 times as likely to buy one of the products as those offered two dozen tasting choices and the same coupon. Interestingly more people stopped at the bigger sampling displays but were far less motivated to buy, which may explain the hordes or glassy-eyed consumers wandering bigcity malls on the weekends, few of whom seem to be packing much in the way of parcels. This volume of choice often leads to me dreading the thought of buying another product or service. The variations are endless and chances are the brand or style you purchased last time, which seemed just right or at least was perfectly acceptable, is no longer available. According to the Economist, the implications of all of this are

addressed in a book called “The Paradox of Choice.” But with the volume of books published these days, the periodicals piling up on the mail table, not to mention the endless array of television channels and new movies not worth watching, getting it is a doubtful proposition. ***** NOTES FROM ROUTE 22 After finally getting our morning nourishment, we headed out for our fall clean-up of the highway. There were a lot fewer paper cups and other disposable beverage containers this time out. Tins for “energy drinks” are displacing them. The tiny cans that come at big prices for God knows what must not work very well. Apparently, after drinking one, their youthful enthusiasts don’t even have the zest required to return the container for a refund, or at least put in the trash rather than tossing it out their car windows.

Brazilians would have to wait a little longer. The waves would reach up to 20 km. (13 mi.) inland in low-lying areas. Many tens of millions would die. So let’s imagine that there’s another eruption on Cumbre Vieja, and a committee of global experts is convened to watch the western flank for signs of movement. Should they advise evacuation along all the vulnerable coasts? That’s several hundred million people. Who will give those people food and shelter? How long must they stay inland? And the economic damage would be huge. The experts can’t wait until the last minute to give their advice: you can’t evacuate the entire US east coast in six hours. If they advise evacuation, and nothing bad happens, they will be the most unpopular people on the planet. If they don’t, and the worst does happen, they will be seen as guilty of mass manslaughter, just like the Italian scientists at L’Aquila. Since it will always be much likelier that no catastrophe is going to happen this time, the experts will almost certainly issue reassuring statements intended to keep people in their homes. Just like the Italian scientists. And yet some day, next week or a thousand years from now, that mass of rock on Cumbre Vieja will really fall into the sea. Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

A shameful slide for well-being An editorial from the Corner Brook Western Star Surprise, surprise Canadians are doing much worse these days as far as their well-being is concerned. That information was included in the Canadian Well-being Index released this week by researchers at the University of Waterloo. The numbers show the quality of our lives in this country declined 24 per cent between 2008 and 2010. Most of us who crawl out of bed in the morning to go off to our jobs likely don’t know much about pouring over statistics and creating indexes but we know - or feel we know - most of us are worse off now than not so long ago. If our well-being is based on the money we have left over

from our paycheques, most ordinary folks feel the decline in our quality of life every day. We see it when we fill up our vehicles with gasoline, we see it when our municipal tax bills show up, we see it when we pick up our groceries and when we get a rare night out to relax. The price of almost everything we need and want is going up and our salaries barely budge. Just recently, for instance, there was an application to the Public Utilities Board by Newfoundland Power looking for a nearly seven per cent rate hike. This is a profitable company and it still wants more. Compare that seven per cent hike - which hasn’t been approved yet - to the raise most workers in this province got this

year. The rise in the price of electricity takes more money out of the pocket of nearly every person in this province - money that can’t be spent on other things. It’s clear that we are much better off than many people around the world. All we have to do is follow the news to see that. But that doesn’t mean we should sit by and accept that our comfortable and safe way of life should be allowed to be whittled away a cut at a time. We work hard for what we have, but our hands are tied when it comes to making dramatic changes that impact our well-being. Those who can alter the steady slide - but don’t - should read this report and hang their heads in shame.

Opportunities abound in B.C.’s tourism and hospitality industry SPECIAL TO THE TIMES For some, a dream job would be a vacation planner – for themselves! Vacationing in B.C. can take so many forms that it would indeed be a full-time job. The tourism and hospitality industry is an extremely diverse industry with over 400 different occupations – including occupations that lead to longer-term careers, as well as those that fit well for those seeking part-time work, like students or older workers who are not ready to retire. British Columbia’s tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the BC tourism industry’s human resource association. The “Tourism Labour Market Strategy,” released in the spring of 2012 by go2, sets out the plan to recruit, retain and train the workers needed to keep pace with the growth projected for the industry. Nearly half of the 101,000 openings will be new jobs created by the tourism industry across the province, adding 44,220 more jobs to the provincial workforce by 2020. The other approximately 57,000 openings are due to replacements (i.e. retirements). “The labour strategy co-

ordinated by go2 is a key pillar of industry growth in the province. Without it, we simply wouldn’t have the skilled workers in place to deliver the visitor experience throughout BC,” says Lana Denoni, Chair of TIABC, the Tourism Industry Association of British Columbia. British Columbia’s location, bordered by the Rocky Mountains on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west, makes it unique within Canada. Its mountain and coastal scenery, opportunities for

summer sailing, winter skiing, and other activities such as fishing or sightseeing in coastal or inland waters or experiencing our vibrant cities all make us a worldclass destination. Tourism helps to diversify our economy and also brings new community services to permanent residents. BC’s tourism and hospitality industry is now the single largest “primary resource industry” in the province, generating an annual real GDP ($2002) of more than $6.4 billion in 2010, ahead

of forestry, mining, oil and gas extraction, and agriculture. Tourism and hospitality generated $13.4 billion in annual revenue in 2010. Overall, between 2004 and 2010, industry revenues grew by a total of 25.5 per cent, representing an average annual growth rate of 4.2 per cent. The provincial government’s “Gaining the Edge: A Five-year Strategy for Tourism in British Columbia,” targets revenue growth of five per cent a year that will top $18 billion in tourism spending by 2016. The fastest growing sectors for tourism job growth over the next decade are expected to be recreation and entertainment and travel services. There are an estimated 17,943 tourism-related businesses across the province, employing about 260,000 workers, or 10.8 per cent of B.C.’s total labour force of 2.4 million people. More than 80 per cent of tourism’s new job openings are projected to come in Food and Beverage Services (43,410 openings), Recreation and Entertainment (20,530 openings) and the Accommodation sector (18,920 openings). “After several years of slow labour growth, the tourism industry is poised to expand,” said Arlene Keis, Chief Executive

Officer of go2. “Labour shortages are already being felt in places like Northern B.C., the Thompson Okanagan and in the Rockies regions. By 2016, the crunch will be more acute throughout the province.” “The tourism industry often provides people with their important first job and sets them on their career path,” said Keis. “Tourism is also the largest employer of youth, with one in four British Columbians under the age of 24 working in the industry.” “This anticipated growth in tourism reinforces the need to plan carefully and ensure that there are enough workers with the right skills in the right communities to meet the tourism industry’s future labour needs,” said Keis. Boomer Gaye Dolezal of Sidney says “Working part-time in Tourism Information was a fun way for me to use my great knowledge of Canadian cities. I often astounded visitors with the connections I could make to their hometowns.” She adds “People like to feel like welcome guests, not just tourists.” Career section of go2hr.ca: http://www.go2hr.ca/careerstourism Tourism Labour Market Strategy: http://www.go2hr.ca/ strategy

Costumes of pretence

A

s a child, I really loved Halloween. I looked forward to it for weeks. Once I had decided on a costume, my mother began sewing. She was inventive and always fashioned a costume worthy of my childhood imagination. As my costume took shape, my anticipation grew. When the big night finally arrived, my excitement bubbled over. Trick or treating was great fun. We would we traipse around the neighborhood, often trudging through the first snowfall of the season, using pillowcases for candy sacks. For weeks afterwards, we consumed the haul of goodies that simultaneously satisfied and intensified our LOUISE craving for treats. The goodies, delicious as they were, Everyday Theology were secondary to my love of Halloween. The thing I most enjoyed was masquerading. When I put on that costume, I assumed a new persona. When I put on that costume, my dreams became reality. It was a grand feeling! The next morning I was always a little sad. While I would have liked to continue pretending, my loving but organized mother laundered and put my splendid costume away. It was time to ‘get real’. Halloween served a useful purpose in my childhood, other than the obvious benefit of free candy. It fired my imagination. It helped me discover my self, reshape my dreams and accept the realities of life. Pretending helped me become real. It is easy to become distracted from being real. There are numerous influences that tempt us away from discovering and accepting ourselves. Consumerism and the beauty industry are two cultural influences that entice us into participating in a masquerade and encourage us to court falsehoods about ourselves. Consumerism convinces us that our wants are needs and pressures us to purchase items we can ill afford. It goads us into spending on ourselves, when we should be reaching out to others or facing up to our financial realities. Meanwhile, the culture of beauty sings its anti-aging siren song, deluding us into a superficial denial of our own mortality. We confuse the content of our personhood with the quality of our possessions and our physical attractiveness. While there is nothing innately wrong with possessions and looking our best, focusing on these externals can make us self-centered and unhappy. A preoccupation with the self saps our resources and our energy. We have little left to give others because we are consumed with our cravings. The externals are like sugar laden Halloween treats: just when we think we have eaten our fill, we find ourselves craving more. When this happens, we are no longer real. We need a loving mother to make us take off our splendid costume, and nudge us towards showing the world our resplendent self. We long for loving mother figures to reassure us that we are loved and loveable, even without the grandiose masquerade. Love gives us the courage to strip away the externals. Love empowers us for self-discovery, helps us accept our realities and encourages us to dream in life giving ways. We “get real� when we put aside our pretense and focus on the content of our life. It truly is a grand feeling! Trail resident Louise McEwan has a background in education and catechesis, and degrees in English and Theology. She writes every other week.

Pride in a Scar If you have lived a relatively normal life, then no doubt you have a few scars to show for it: the scar below the knee from a childhood accident, the chipped tooth from a fearless wagon ride down a steep hill, or a burn scar from a red-hot ember sent flying from the campfire by a rock thrown into the fire. Those are likely to be the scars of childhood, and we can easily take a sort of whimsical pride in them, as if to say we were reckless as kids, but oh what fun we had! The broken arm or leg is a bit more serious, but people often remember those more serious accidents with fondness once they are sufficiently distant from the event. There is a certain well-earned pride in surviving these accidents, illnesses and surgeries. Everyone in my family remembers vividly when we all caught the Hong Kong flu in 1969. Misery loves company, and there is almost nothing more miserable than being miserable alone. Perhaps the pride we take in our scars, both physical and emotional, is a testimony to our toughness. Sure, I broke my tooth on the wagon handle, and sure, she broke my heart,

Trail swimmers took their talents to the next level, as the recently formed Greater Trail Swim Club (GTSC) swam to impressive results at the Iron Triple Pentathlon Swim Meet in Penticton earlier this month. The newly formed winter club will complement the venerable Trail Stingrays summer swim club that has excelled in the area for years, but with a more national flavour. “It adds another level of competitive swimming to the already successful Home of Champions,” says club spokesman Sharman Thomas. “The GTSC will be the next step for those swimmers that wish to compete regularly at provincial and national competitions.” The club, led by coach Cody Flegel, competed in the three day Pentathlon Swim Meet which sees swimmers swim up to 15 races in five disciplines, including freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, butterfly, and individual

medley, ranging from 25-metre to 400-metre swims. The 11 Greater Traill swimmers shocked other competitors winning medals and setting personal bests against top teams from across the province. “These kids have been swimming 12 to 13 hours a week in training and I’m very proud of every one of them for stepping up and racing as hard as they did at their first winter meet,” said coach Flegel. “We have such a great group of swimmers as well as parents which is very important at this level of competition.” Every swimmer from the GTSC swam personal best times in Penticton with some truly stunning results coming from Dylan and Eden Kormendy, and James Pilla to name a few. Dylan’s times in the 200 IM and 400 IM ranked him number one in Canada, while his sister Eden Kormendy placed first overall for the girls 12 and under category, and Pilla won three events earning him the silver trophy overall in the 15 and

over boys – all in their very first meet. The winter club competition is a new level of competitive swimming, and opens the door to opportunities like university scholarships, Swimming Canada affiliation, and training with Canada’s elite swimmers. Eric Gonzales said “It feels great to be back in the water. In Penticton I was anxious about competing in longer, more difficult events but the training that we have received made it feel as if it were second nature. With this new “league” I was able to experience an elevated level of competition.” Coach Flegel had a distinguished swimming career at the University of Victoria and swam with the national swim team from 2007-11, so knows what it takes to compete at the highest level. The team trains six days a week at the Trail Aquatic Centre, to prepare them for the next great challenge which goes in Vernon next month.

Preds depend on draft

Cherry tweaks McCarver on Twitter

FROM PAGE 10 “We’ve been on the cusp, really close . . . but we’ve built from within, we’re almost all drafted players and we (the scouts) work really hard and that’s one of the reasons why our owners understand that the draft is so important,” added Sanders. “We’re one of the few teams that don’t get cut back because they know we have to (draft) to be successful. Some teams can just go for free agents but we can’t.” There’s a long list of prospects for 2013, and Sanders, like most NHL scouts are drooling over defenceman Seth Jones of the Portland Winterhawks, who is the six-foot-three son of former NBA player Popeye Jones. Curtis Lazar from the Edmonton Oil Kings, is another top 10 prospect from the west, but where the scouts really make a difference is in drafting a third round player who turns into a Mark Messier rather than a top pick who turns into an Alexander Daigle. When asked if there will be an NHL season, Sanders was not overly optimistic. “My hope would be November 2 . . . well, hopefully sometime in November.” If the full NHL season is scuttled, like the 2005 Sydney Crosby sweepstakes, all teams will go into a lottery giving each team a shot at the number one pick for the 2013 draft. Nashville has been in need of a high-end scorer and a top-five pick could net them one. In the ball lottery, every team starts off with three balls. Teams will have a ball taken away through two methods: 1. To have held a first overall pick in any of the last four NHL seasons prior to the draft. 2. To have made the playoffs in one of the previous three seasons prior to the draft. No team can have less than one ball or more than three, and the two methods of losing a ball stack with each other; a team that has made the playoffs two times in the past three seasons will only have one ball, and a team that has had multiple first overall picks will have only one ball. So Nashville could win first pick, but so could the Edmonton Oilers who have had three of the last four first-overall picks. However, they would only receive one ball.

f you wanted to know the severity of the impact of the NHL lockout, consider this, Don Cherry has nothing better to do with is idle and oftvacant brain than create (and then send) tweets critical of a baseball announcer. Cherry, known for outrageous attitudes, not to mention ouffits, apparently stooped to watching the baseball playoffs last weekend, and he was, well, outraged, that Tim McCarver, a very good ball player and excellent colour commetator, mentioned, out loud, that Giants pitcher Ryan Vogleson was working on a no-hitter

heading into the late innings of an important game against the Cardinals. Cherry tweeted that McCarver, whose life is baseball, “has lost his soul,” for jinxing Vogelsong, who indeed surrendered a couple of hits and a run in the next inning, or had, “listened to an egg head tv guy,” in deciding to mention the stat line for the pitcher. The chances that McCarver, a consumate baseball professional on and off the field for four decades plus, had any impact on the game activity by commenting on the first five innings of play, despite the long-held tradition that teammates don’t talk about no-nos, are zip. If only to get Cherry out of the baseball mix I wish fervently that the lockout ends sooner rather than later. Probably jinxed it, right? • Speaking of the lockout, don’t be surpised if Gary Bettman is even less likeable over the next few months 10 ft

or years. His dream job (particularly considering his stature) of becoming NBA commissioner is probably irrevocably tied up for as long as he would ever have been a candidate to take it over. Bettman was NBA boss David Stern’s right hand man until he took the NHL gig. Now Stern has announced he will retire in two years and

the NBA has appointed the guy who took Bettman’s place at Stern’s side to replace Stern in the top job. Now Bettman, who knows little and cares even less about hockey and its fans will be in a snit that will last a long time - likely meaning that so will the lockout. • I have no knowledge of the current abilities of the Smoke Eaters other than news

Don’t badmouth grandparents in front of kids MAILBOX

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

My children are growing up. They are completely self-sufficient and well behaved. They clean up after themselves and take care of one another. I’ve always tried to cast my in-laws in the best possible light, even though they spend less time with my children than my parents who live 1,500 miles away. But the kids are catching on. Should I continue making excuses for my in-laws? Is it OK to tell my kids honestly why they never get invited to their house? Is there any way to express myself to my in-laws so it will open their eyes about what they are

mentioned that men with low sex drives should be tested for low testosterone. I’m curious how many men are willing to address the problem with medication. My guy was tested, and his testosterone was very low. He was given a prescription, but said it was too expensive. A call to the doctor produced a less expensive prescription, but he didn’t fill that one, either, because it was a “hormone,” and he thinks all hormones are dangerous. We have since split up. No sex drive is one thing, but the accompanying negative personality issues made me want to hide in my own house. -- Alone Dear Alone: Low testosterone can also be responsible for depression and other mood disorders. It’s too bad your guy was unwilling to try the prescription. It may have helped him enormously. A discussion with his doctor

about hormones would have been useful. Dear Annie: I disagree with your answer to “Home Alone,” whose boyfriend travels on business for months at a time. When he’s home, he spends weekdays

with her but wants to spend weekends with his family or friends. You said, “You’ll have to revisit this issue if you marry and have children.” I would hope the issue would be totally resolved before even

thinking of getting married. He doesn’t even make a good boyfriend. That relationship spells disaster. -- Texas Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

missing? So far, calling my mother-in-law on her behavior has only resulted in a guilt trip and crocodile tears. It breaks my heart that my children have no relationship with these grandparents. But more than that, I’m having a hard time not resenting them for all the broken promises. -Fran in Frisco Dear Fran: We don’t know why your in-laws switched gears. Perhaps being with all those children was more effort than they expected. But don’t badmouth them to your kids even if they deserve it. When your children ask why they don’t see their grandparents, simply say, “It’s just the way they are.” And please stop asking your in-laws to spend time with the kids. Instead, invite them to whatever occasions merit their presence, and let them see for themselves what they are reaping. Dear Annie: You’ve

2012 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Dear Annie: Eleven years ago, we moved halfway across the country in order to live close to my husband’s family. For years, we heard about all the things they would do with our kids if only we lived nearer. My parents were still busy raising my four younger siblings and weren’t really interested in being grandparents, so all these promises sounded wonderful. It didn’t take long after we moved to discover that my in-laws were all talk. When we announced that we were pregnant with our fourth child, my mother-in-law said, “Well, don’t expect me to babysit four kids.” I had to bite my tongue to keep from retorting, “Why would I? You never babysit the three we already have.” My mother-in-law always sounds like I’m holding a gun to her head when I ask whether she might have some time to see the kids.

YOUR HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With the Moon in your sign today, you might feel more emotional than usual. However, this also makes you luckier, so use it to your advantage. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your best option today is to work alone or behind the scenes to get the most done. Tackle research and do whatever you can to get better organized. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Conversations with a female acquaintance or friend could be significant today. This person might help you to tweak your goals for the future. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be aware that some aspects of your private life will be public today, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs. You might want to do a little damage control.

Hmmm? LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Do something different today because you need to broaden your horizons. You want stimulation and adventure. Travel anywhere if you can or talk to people from other cultures. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You feel passionate and intense today about practically everything! This is a good day to wrap up loose details with taxes, debt and shared property. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the Moon is opposite your sign. Be prepared to cooperate and compromise. (No biggie.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) What can you do to get better organized today? Why not set aside 15 minutes to

tackle messy little areas that are mentally dragging you down? SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a playful day! Enjoy competitive sports events, social activities, playful times with children, movies and the arts. Also, a flirtation might turn your crank. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You’ll enjoy private, quiet time at home if you can get

it. You need a little time to do some navel-gazing and ponder your situation in general. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Today is a busy day with short trips, errands and discussions with neighbors and siblings. Don’t stay at home. Get out and hustle, because it’s a big world out there! PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Focus on ways to expand

your earnings or solidify your financial base in some way. You’re going to be feeling richer at home this year, which means you might be buying luxurious goodies for where you live. YOU BORN TODAY You’re a powerful individual with abundant energy, drive and ambition. You have strong feelings and are frequently impulsive. You have a public persona and a private one; but you do like the approv-

SUNDAY/MONDAY HOROSCOPE By Francis Drake For Sunday, Oct. 28, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Today you really have the travel bug! Many of you will be making plans to escape somewhere, either now or in the future. Others will sign up for courses to learn something new. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your sex drive is very strong today! However, your desire to defend your best interests in matters about insurance, taxes and shared wealth is equally strong. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be careful not to arouse opposition against you today, because you could be overwhelmed by it. Go gently. People (including you) feel very competitive today. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’re willing to work very hard to get a lot done today, especially if you can use the efforts of others. You’re ready to rally your troops and delegate duties to everyone!

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a playful, competitive day! Enjoy pranks, flirtations and fun times with others. Sports events and social occasions will be excessive and over the top. (Do not drink and drive.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be patient and diplomatic with family members today, because you could overreact to something someone says. (Perhaps it’s because you’re so determined to introduce improvements to where you live.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Make sure you don’t promise more than you can deliver when talking to others today. It’s very tempting to do this because you believe in yourself! SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Guard against spending too much money today or thinking that you have more than you actually have. This is a classic day to go overboard. Aagghh.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You’re pumped with energy today because you feel so enthusiastic about something. You always get like this when foreign shores beckon or adventure is at hand. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might be hatching some secret plans today because you’re playing your cards very close to your chest. Keep an eye on what others are doing as well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Group activities will be fun and exciting; however, don’t let competition make you lose your good judgment. Think about your long-term objectives. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don’t bite off more than you can chew today to impress bosses, parents and authority figures. (Because you will be tempted to do this.) Remain realistic. (Do yourself this favor.) YOU BORN TODAY You always do your homework,

which is why those who work with you think you’re so professional. You’re also intrigued with how things work behind the scenes. You have excellent money savvy and demand high standards of those around you. Essentially, you’re a friendly but serious person. Set aside some time in the coming year to learn something valuable. (You’ll be glad you did.) Birthdate of: Julia Roberts, actress; Annie Potts, actress; Bill Gates, Microsoft billionaire. For Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The Full Moon today is a poor time for important financial decisions, especially about inheritances and shared property. Wait a few days for this intense energy to pass. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place today. This is why it’s challenging dealing with partners and close friends. (Agree to nothing.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Avoid important decisions at work today or decisions regarding your health. Today and tomorrow are poor times for these considerations. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be extra patient with children and romantic partners

today because of the Full Moon’s energy. This could be an accident-prone day for your kids, especially with poison, gas or chemicals. (Forewarned is forearmed.) LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Do what you can to keep the peace at home, because today’s Full Moon will aggravate relations with parents, bosses and family members. Avoid quarrels about shared property. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is an accident-prone day for your sign, so slow down and take it easy. Give yourself extra time for wiggle room for your appointments and daily tasks. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) The Full Moon today creates stress with spending money and earning it. This is not a good day for important purchases, because you can’t trust your judgment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) The only Full Moon directly opposite your sign all year is taking place today. This is why relationships with partners and close friends are tense and dicey. (Patience is your only recourse.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Be accommodating and tolerant with co-workers and customers today, because everyone might be losing it because of today’s Full Moon.

SATURDAY’S CROSSWORD

This intense energy will subside in 48 hours. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Don’t challenge friends or people in group situations today, because it will be pointless. Arguments will be just a lot of hot air because of the Full Moon energy today. Zip thy lip! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) It’s not easy dealing with authority figures today because of the Full Moon. Be extra polite with the police, bosses, parents and anyone in charge. (You’ll be glad you did.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a mildly accidentprone day for your sign, so pay attention to what you do. Distractions are the main cause of accidents. YOU BORN TODAY You like to stay fresh. You love new ideas and are often an expert in your field. You work well with others and can be persuasive when you want to be. You are charming and know how to make a great first impression. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big! Birthdate of: Joely Fisher, actress; Richard Dreyfus, actor; Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Nobel laureate.

For Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although this is a poor day for making firm decisions, it’s an excellent day to think about how to reduce your debt and improve your position in anything that is jointly held (like mortgages, insurance matters and shared property). TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Sit down with others

areas. Look for solutions to problems. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You’re extremely convincing today! Unfortunately, this is a poor day for important decisions or commitments. Nevertheless, you can begin to pave the way. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Give some serious thought to new ways to earn money or get a different job, because it might be possible now. You want greater control in your life via your assets. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Take a realistic look in the mirror, and ask yourself what you can do to improve your appearance. You also might consider how you can improve your style of relating to others.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a great day for research and for digging deep for solutions and answers. You’ll be like a dog with a bone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Group discussions will be powerfully intense today. You might be attracted to a powerful leader, or vice versa; you could be the leader. Nevertheless, postpone important decisions until tomorrow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your relationship to someone in authority might undergo a shift today. You might gain power or lose power. Don’t make any commitments or promises today.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Look for ways to enrich your life through further education or training. Perhaps travel is a way to expand your horizons. YOU BORN TODAY You are naturally organized and excellent at supervising others. Furthermore, you know how to motivate people. You work well with others! You often travel great distances for your career. You know how to fine-tune things to keep them working. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for nine years will diminish or end in order to make room for something new.
