Flu clinics going ahead as scheduled Government cancels suspension of Novartis influenza vaccine BY TIMES STAFF

Flu clinics are set to begin in Greater Trail on Friday on the heels of Health Canada’s announcement that it has rescinded the suspension of the Novartis influenza vaccine. Health Canada announced Wednesday that Novartis-made vaccines have been approved for use in Canada and Europe after an investigation of one batch in Europe. B.C. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall said the suspension was precautionary and related to effectiveness, and there is no safety concern. Earlier this week, Interior Health issued a press release advising the public that the clinics will continue as scheduled using its primary vaccine product Vaxigrip. The first local flu clinic will be held on Friday at the Rossland Miner’s Hall from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Next week Trail will host a clinic on Nov. 7 at the Cominco Gym from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Other clinics in Trail will be held on Nov. 14 at the Kiro Wellness Centre from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Nov. 28 at Kiro from 9 a.m. to noon. A third clinic at the Kiro centre will be held Dec. 12 from 9 a.m. to noon. Children’s second immunizations will be made by appointment. There will be one clinic at the Fruitvale Hall on Nov. 23 from 9 a.m. To 4 p.m. In its press release, Interior Health explained that Novartis products “comprise less than 10 per cent of the vaccine supply.” For more information on the influenza vaccine and to find a flu clinic near you visit

Trail market heads indoor on Friday BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

Trail’s outdoor market is making its move to inside the Cominco Gym, with the transition being put to the test this Friday. The vendors will set up in the morning, and be ready to display their wares from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. “The transition has been easy as the outdoor market grew with vendors and attendance,” said Eleanor Gattafoni Robinson.

Kitchen upgrades served up in GTCC BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

The Senior Citizens Association Branch 47 in Trail recently unveiled a newly renovated kitchen in the Greater Trail Community Centre. The original kitchen, which has been in use for over 20 years, received a muchneeded upgrading at the beginning of October. “The kitchen wasn’t really designed for what we are using it for now,” said Geoff Tellier, chef instructor at Selkirk College’s Trail campus. Since the renovations, which included a new stove and cabinets, the kitchen has been running more efficiently. “The kitchen just feels better, cleaner and brighter, and like a new start,” said Tellier. “In the old kitchen the ovens weren’t regulating properly and need fixing on an ongoing basis, so it’s been great with new

ovens.” The kitchen project was made possible with funding from the Columbia Basin Trust, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, and the Senior Citizen Association. The seniors association rents the space to the college for the food services program, which operates Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. The program is focused on transitional and life skills training in the hospitality industry. “Every one has worth, sometimes it just takes a little longer,” explained Tellier. “Given time to finish, my students will start it, get it, finish it, and gain self confidence and self esteem,” There may be 12 to 16 students in the fast paced kitchen daily, depending on the cooking challenge. The students are also taught catering menus when they host various

groups, such as the Trail Association for Community Living, Canadian Institute for the Blind, and the Stroke Recovery members The program offers a short order menu from grill cheese to hot roast beef, but the major focus is on a fresh soup and daily special. Average daily seatings serve 30 to 40 people, although during holidays, the turkey dinners have brought in over 80 diners. “Generally, $6 will get you a cup of coffee and a great meal,” said Tellier. Tellier has been running the food services program for 16 years. He is a journeyman in the trade, and cooking since 1978. “I started cooking fish and chips in White Rock down on the strip.” he laughed. The kitchen is open for service Monday to Thursday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

Don’t miss the first step in problem-solving


ometimes the obvious is not so obvious. When it comes to fixing a problem with an automobile the first step is always to verify the problem. One man’s “shake” is another man’s “rumble”. The problem now is as clear as mud. Many automotive problems are only communicated to the auto repair shop by phone, email, written message, or sticky note on the steering wheel. The problem with these communication methods comes in the very first step of the diagnosis.

When the technician who is going to diagnose the problem gets in your vehicle an attempt must be made to verify the problem. In an ideal situation the customer is present with the vehicle and the problem can be immediately replicated by the customer for the technician maybe even without a test drive. In many cases the technician must interpret the email, written message, or worse the person (service advisor) who made the appointment’s interpretation of the issue. Unfortunately most

shop environments use the last method most frequently. Admittedly many problems are straightforward. “Headlight is out.” Then there are the not so straightforward intermittent problems. Sometimes the verification process is less than successful. “Intermittently the vehicle shudders while accelerating.” Problems that are the feeling type described by words like shudder, shake, vibration, growl, and pulsation present a challenge to your technician. A road test with the customer is mandatory. The problem must

also present itself during this road test. When the road test ends with “it just isn’t doing it now” it will be very difficult for diagnosis. Sometimes the technician has experience with a similar problem with the same type of vehicle. The technician will attempt to solve a problem that is known to be common to that vehicle with similar symptoms. Sometimes this works but not always. The technician is taking a risk with this method especially if the repair is expensive, does not fix the problem, and therefore results in an unsatisfied customer. Some vehicle have problems that their respective owners do not even recognize. These problems can lead to more problems down the road but repairing them before they manifest themselves in a more serious problem will not necessarily produce a satisfied customer. Ultimately the best result will be obtained when customer and

technician agree on and experience the problem to be solved. Sometimes getting this to happen will take time and as we know time is money. When the problem cannot be verified many times it makes sense to follow through with the second step of any diagnosis. That is an actual physical inspection. The temptation in this computer age to simply diagnose with high technology instead of using your eyes, ears, and nose is always there. It is easy to forget to just lift the hood (so to speak). Many problems are solved this way. The steps taken to diagnose and repair without verifying the problem are fraught with problems. Missing that first step can make a solution a much more drawn out affair. Trail’s Ron Nutini is a licensed automotive technician and graduate of mechanical engineering from UBC.

New vendors on board



Due to the success of the outdoor market, the initiative to keep the long absent market up and running through winter was inevitable. So far, there are 33 vendors registered to showcase their wares on Friday. With only 36 stalls available, the indoor market may soon have to expand its space. “At the peak of our outdoor market, we had 41 vendors and know we will only grow as we have the space,” added Gattafoni. Friday’s market will welcome back the ever popular produce vendors and buskers. With the holiday season approaching, early gift shoppers will be in for a treat as new vendors were quick to jump on board after hearing about the tremendous success their fellow artisans had in Trail this summer. “There will be a lot of neat and

unique gift ideas for Christmas,” said Maggie Stayanovich, from the Trail District Chamber of Commerce. Stayanovich is impressed by not only the talented array of vendors, but also with the support of the community. “That is why there is an indoor market, community support has been amazing,” she added. The vendors pay $20 for their space, but unlike summer where they had to provide their own tent, table and chairs, the City of Trail will be providing the tables and chairs. The committee is hoping for a good turnout. “The more the merrier and good for the vendors to showcase and sell their products,” said Gattafoni Robinson. The 10 markets held this summer on the Esplanade were very successful with over 6,000 people and 300 vendors attending.

A Cranbrook group opposed to the urban deer cull has united with similar groups in other B.C. communities to stand against lethal methods of deer control. Based in Cranbrook, the grassroots group Humane Treatment of Urban Wildlife (HTUW) formed in January 2012, but last month it united with three like-minded groups to form the British Columbia Deer Protection Coalition. HTUW, DeerSafe Victoria, the Invermere Deer Protection Society and Animal Alliance of Canada have come together to educate the public about non-lethal methods of deer management, said Colleen Bailey, chair of HTUW. “We know this is a huge issue in many communities, so rather than trying to piecemeal each community with education and information, we decided to conglomerate our efforts so we would have more resources at our disposal,” said Bailey. “We want to be a resource, not only for individuals and private citizens but for municipalities and elected officials to be able to access some ideas.” Last November, Cranbrook culled 25 urban deer – 11 white-tail and 14 mule – using clover traps. It was the first of three East Kootenay communities to carry out a cull with a license from the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Now, the coalition is working with wildlife biologists to collate research

on deer management methods, she went on. “What we try to do is remove the emotion out of the topic. This is such a highly volatile situation for all of our communities. We don’t want to divide the communities; we want to unite the communities. “We have been accused of being the emotional ones and coming from an emotional perspective, but in reality we are coming from science. It’s the people going, ‘Somebody’s going to get killed,’ that are coming from an emotional base. We are saying let’s do something to prevent that through scientific research, education and understanding.” In the coalition’s view, culling is not effective because last year’s deer cull in Cranbrook did not reduce the overall numbers of urban deer in town. “The Coalition doesn’t see the purpose in spending tax dollars on something we know will have to be a continual effort to maintain the numbers. Culling isn’t a one-time option if they choose that method so taxpayers can count on having their tax dollars spent on this lethal method every year,” said Bailey, adding indiscriminate culling does not help because it does not target problem deer. “The deer are not euthanized. It is a completely different term and it’s misrepresenting to the public what they are doing. People think they are being put to sleep like they are pets. We need to call it what it is and say the deer are being killed,” said Bailey. “Given that it’s not effective in improving public safety, it doesn’t seem right.”

MLA travel expenses released Kootenay West MLA chalked up $30,482


VICTORIA - For the first time, the B.C. government has released the travel expenses of MLAs after a scathing report by the auditor general said the legislature’s financial books were a mess. The expenses cover the first six months of this fiscal year, from

speaker of the house, whose expenses were $46,410, and Norm MacDonald, another New Democrat, who billed $45,332. Barisoff says B.C. residents want accountability on how their tax dollars are spent, and the release of the travel expenses helps meet that expectation. But the posting of the expenses came only after Auditor General John Doyle released a

report this summer, saying the financial books of the B.C. legislature were so chaotic that it was impossible to tell if money was being well spent. Doyle’s report found that MLA credit card bills are being paid without receipts and the legislative assembly hasn’t produced financial statements despite a 2007 recommendation from the previous auditor general.

Two century-old dams at Colliery Dam Park will be removed and existing lakes will be drained within the next year to eliminate a potential flooding hazard in populated areas

downstream. City officials say the Lower and Middle Colliery Dams remain stable under normal conditions, but that a significant seismic or extreme rainfall event could cause the dams to fail, potentially putting

hundreds of people in Harewood at risk. A routine dam assessment performed by the province’s Dam Safety Branch in 2010 raised initial concerns. That assessment was followed up with a more recent study that came with a recommendation to remove the dams. All other dams in the city were deemed safe. Bill Sims, the city’s manager of water resources, said the city has moved quickly to establish a plan to drain the lakes, remove the dams and establish a community consultation process and an emergency evacuation plan. On Tuesday morning, city officials were in Harewood visiting more than 400 homes and businesses, including John Barsby Secondary School, that might be affected by a breach. “We’ve run a few models that indicated the areas that might be

affected so we’re in the process of contacting people who fall into those potential areas,” said Sims, adding that forecasting damage would be purely speculative. The Lower Dam, a 14.5-metre high structure, and the Middle Dam, at 12 metres, were two of the earliest concrete structures in Nanaimo. Both were built in 1911 and neither have any reinforcing steel. “It’s of poor quality,” said Susan Clift, Nanaimo’s director of engineering and public works. The expected cost to remove the dams is about $7 million. Some of that money will come from reserves while the balance will come from short-term borrowing, which means a public referendum won’t be required (public approval is required for borrowing for a five-year term or longer).

Many Canadians banking on luck for retirement THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - Onethird of Canadian respondents to a new survey admit their financial plans include counting on a future injection of good luck, either by winning the lottery or receiving a large inheritance. The poll commissioned by Credit Canada Debt Solutions and Capital One Canada found that nearly two in 10, or 18 per cent, of those polled say they believe winning the lot-

tery will contribute to their financial plan, while one in 10 say they expect a large inheritance to help out. “It’s troubling to see so many Canadians putting more trust in the lottery than sound financial planning, but I see the effects every day in our agency,” said Laurie Campbell, CEO of Credit Canada Debt Solutions. “Canadians need to recognize that there is no magic solution to gaining control of their finances. It means hard

work and sticking to a budget determined by income.” The survey comes as Canadian household debt sits at an all time high and other reports indicate many Canadians are realizing they have

not saved adequately for retirement. It also found that more than two-thirds of those asked have felt anxious or lost sleep thinking about their finances in the past year and another two-thirds

Generational imbalance plagues policy priorities


here is a generational imbalance in Canada’s policy priorities. While Canadians under 45 face a precipitous drop in their standard of living, government spending prioritizes Canadians over 55 – the very generations that benefited the most from a national economy that more than doubled in size since 1976. It’s time to adapt policy to find better balance. Gen X’ers came of age when wages were falling and housing prices skyrocketing. As a result, the average 35 to 44 year old reported debt levels that reached 95 per cent of household income in 2005. This is nearly three times higher than the average debt reported by Baby Boomers when they were the same age in 1984. The harmful trend for Gen X shows little sign of diminishing for Gen Y. By contrast, Baby Boomers age 55 to 67 approach retirement today with average wealth that is up nearly 200 per cent compared to Canadians of the

same age in the mid-1970s. This in itself isn’t a problem. If high housing prices are going to crush dreams for many young Canadians, it’s good the associated economic growth has benefitted our parents and grandparents – not just the One Per Cent. As a generation of retiring parents risk watching their kids and grandkids fall behind, what do we make of current policy priorities in Canada? Far higher debt levels make starting families less affordable for generations in their prime child bearing years. Under 45’s have adapted, in part by delaying having kids until they are older, and devoting more hours to employment once they have kids. But their adaptations don’t change the fact that the typical couple loses the equivalent of another mortgage from their income when parents split time at home with a newborn – even when they take advantage of parental leave benefits. And they will often fork out the equivalent of multiple years of postsecondary tuition to pay for


KERSHAW Troy Media

12 months of child care so they can spend enough time in employment to cope with wages that are down and housing debt that is up. Starting a family doesn’t need to be so difficult. Canada could save new dads and moms $14,000 when they split 18 months at home with a baby by improving parental leave; and save young families $6,000 a year per preschooler if we reduced child care fees to no more than $10 a day. To do this, Canadian priorities need to change. Federal and provincial governments (outside of Quebec) spend as much subsidizing livestock and agriculture as they do subsid-

izing parents to spend time with a new baby, and subsidizing child care services. Why do we spend so little on generations under age 45? Part of the answer is that we are spending more elsewhere – including on older generations. In 1976, Canadian governments spent just over 4 per cent of our economy each year on retirement income supports. Today, annual spending reaches at least 7.1 per cent of our economy – $115 billion. That is $45 billion more than we would have spent on retirement income support had we stuck with the practice in 1976. This impressive policy adaptation reduced poverty for a generation of retirees from an unacceptable level of 30 per cent in the mid-70s to the lowest rate of poverty for any age group in the country today. Public spending on medical care is even higher than pensions – and around half goes to the 15 per cent of Canadians age 65 and older. We spend 8.3 per cent of the national economy on medical care today, or $141 billion

annually. This is $47 billion more than we would have allocated had we maintained medical spending at the proportion of the economy it took in 1975. Spending on older Canadians doesn’t have to come at the expense of spending on younger generations. But we can’t avoid this trade-off so long as we prioritize tax cuts along with increases to retirement security and medical care. This is what Canadians started doing a decade ago. We now collect 5 per cent less of our economy in taxes than we did in the year 2000. That’s a massive $80 billion annual tax cut. Yet data show that younger generations still struggle to bridge the gap between stagnant wages and high housing costs. So long as we choose not to invest in these solutions, our current young generation will be left with no conclusion than that it is unaffordable to start a family.

Since life originated some think of ourselves. When I did my first television 3.9-billion years ago, organisms have been confronted with strik- series in 1962, the medium was

denigrated as the “boob tube”. We said it jokingly, but it reflected an anxiety about the negative aspects of this new instrument. Over and over, we have become enamoured with the immediate benefits of technological innovation without recognizing deleterious consequences. When DDT and other pesticides were introduced, we knew nothing of biomagnification, that molecules could be concentrated hundreds of thousands of times up the food web. And no one had a clue that the sun’s ultraviolet radiation would cleave chlorine free radicals from CFC molecules and ravage the ozone layer. Think of all the psychological and social effects, to say nothing of ecological impacts, we now see from the ubiquity of computers, cellphones and video games. We need to look at the way we create and introduce technology. Perhaps it’s time to ask, “Why do we need this?” “Does it improve our lives in a significant way?” And then we may ask, “What are the wider repercussions of this invention throughout nature and over time?” If we asked, with greater humility, “How does nature solve problems?” we might find solutions that would avert or minimize negative consequences. I’ve always been struck by the fact that when an animal poops, insects and fungi immediately jump on and start feasting. Nature doesn’t waste. If all the “waste” we create could become another organism’s food or the material for another useful process, we might even eliminate the word waste altogether.

An editorial from the Toronto Star To Americans who weren’t battling for their lives amid Hurricane Sandy’s destructive fury, the “Frankenstorm” that ravaged the U.S. east coast and battered parts of Canada brought relief from an ugly presidential campaign that dominated the news pages, TV screens and websites. For a few days at least, Democrats and Republicans managed to check their partisan instincts and pulled together to save lives and clean up the mess. The sheer, humbling force of nature helped put America’s sulphurous politics into perspective. New Yorkers and others swept up in 140 km/h winds and 4-metreplus sea surges were reminded that TV attack ads count for little when millions are huddled in the dark without power, or TV, and the subways are knee deep in

rescue, evacuation, relief and rebuilding efforts. The presidential candidates are both smart enough to know that this isn’t the time, just days before the Nov. 6 ballot, to be perceived as cynically milking the crisis for political gain. While Obama’s role as president and contender can’t easily be separated, both have scaled back on campaigning until the crisis abates. Even so, this is a moment to reflect on the kind of Washington that is on offer in the election, whatever the ad campaigns may claim. At root, the Democrats believe in strong, activist federal government. Republicans want to pare it back, and download responsibility elsewhere. Sandy’s “October surprise” has focused minds on that distinction as millions weather the storm, tally its cost and consider their options.


Sandy a reminder that government matters water. While Sandy is a pale shadow of Hurricane Katrina, the monster storm that ravaged New Orleans in 2005, it nonetheless brought parts of New York City to a standstill, wreaked $20 billion in damage and killed scores of people. On Tuesday President Barack Obama declared it a “major disaster.” That frees up federal funds to help recession-strapped state and local governments cope with the crisis, and to help people rebuild uninsured homes and businesses. It’s a sharp reminder, as the New York Times was quick to note, that “Big Government” has a role to play in times of national crisis, even though Mitt Romney’s Republicans have pushed for ever deeper cutbacks to grants that support disaster preparedness programs. Left unchecked, the Republicans would hobble future

Smokies in running BY TIMES STAFF

Two Trail Smoke Eaters came oh so close to taking home Player of the Week honours in the BCHL. The BCHL brass gave honourable mention to goaltender Lyndon Stanwood and forward Brent Baltus for their exceptional performances in wins over Victoria and Salmon Arm on the weekend. Stanwood received first star honours for his 39 save performance against the Victoria Grizzlies and followed that up with a 33 save gem in a 5-2 win over Salmon Arm on Sunday. Stanwood was particularly good in the third-periods of both games when the Smokies were outshot by a cumulative 33-7. He posted a remarkable 2.00 GAA, and a .947 save percentage LYNDON in backstopping the Smokies to STANWOOD consecutive wins. Baltus was named the game’s first star against Salmon Arm as he scored the game winning goal to cap a four-point weekend. The 20-year-old leads the team in scoring with 12 goals and seven assists and has been a leader on and off the ice. Mario Puskarich of the Langley Rivermen was awarded PoW honous. Puskarich  recorded a hat trick in a 6-5 win over Surrey, was in on seven of the Rivermen’s 10 goals in their three games and led all BCHL scorers for the week. Smoke Signals: The Trail Smoke Eaters are holding the third annual Ice-Breaker fundraiser Nov.10 at Cominco Gym. The evening will feature a steak and lobster dinner, live music from Emerson, an auction, and a $1,000 reverse draw. Only 300 tickets have been printed for the event and they are going fast, single tickets are $45 or $80 per couple. Come out for some great food and great fun while supporting the Trail Smoke Eaters.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks Riley Brandt swoops in on the Columbia Valley goalie in KIJHL action on Sunday. Brandt made no mistake as he deked the goalie to put the Hawks up 4-1. The Nitehawks will need all the offence it can get this weekend as they get set to face the Nelson Leafs Friday and the Sicamous Eagles on Saturday.

Critical weekend for Hawks BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

The next two games are a big test for the Beaver Valley Nitehawks as they get set to face two of the best teams in the KIJHL this season. The Nitehawks travel to Nelson to take on the Leafs Friday, and will be looking to avenge a 10-3 humbling in their last meeting. The Hawks were at the mercy of a smooth skating and slick passing Leafs squad last week, and need to tighten its defence and generate the same offence that carried them to an 8-2 victory over the Leafs in early October. “I think we’re building back up, we obviously had a lull to our play there, basically lost three of four games there and got whooped by Nelson,” said Nitehawk coach and GM Terry Jones. “I think it really shattered a lot of the boys confidence.” But the team regrouped and responded with a pair of wins last weekend, with a 4-3 victory over Grand Forks Friday and a 4-1 win over Columbia Valley Sunday. “We started to do some things better, we’ve had some good practices and I think we have a good feeling, and I think guys are really looking forward to Friday night, (against the Leafs),” said Jones. The Leafs sit atop the Neil Murdoch Division with 23 points while the Hawks are three points back in third place, but have two

games in hand. On Saturday the Hawks host the Sicamous Eagles, one of the elite teams in the Doug Birks Division of the Shuswap/Okanagan Conference. “Every team we’ve played from the northern division has been solid . . . so we have to be ready for Sicamous. I expect it to be a very difficult weekend for us and I’m looking forward to see how the boys respond.” The Eagles have lost just one game in regulation this year, and are led by 19-year-old Brendan Devries who leads the team in scoring with 12 goals and six assists in 14 games, and rookie forwards Cameron Berry, 8-9-17, and Kelyn Opel, 4-10-14. Sicamous also enjoys a solid tandem between the pipes in Jack Surgenor, 19, who sports a 2.37 goals against average and a .912 save percentage, and rookie Kris Joyce, 17, with a .917 save percentage and a 2.84 GAA. The Hawks will look to shut down the Leafs potent forwards especially 20-year-old captain Colten Schell. “We have to be a way better defensive team, and we’re going to have to have a really good power play. As we progress those are the two things we have to really think about,” added Jones. Beaver Valley plays the Leafs at the Nelson Community Complex at 7 p.m. and will host Sicamous at the Beaver Valley Arena Saturday at 7:30 p.m.


Soccer program connects kids to ‘Caps

Vancouver – Last week the Whitecaps FC Kootenay Academy travelled to Vancouver for training, games, and the big Whitecaps FC versus Portland Timbers MLS match at B.C. Place stadium. Over 100 players and staff took in a training session with Whitecaps FC Vancouver technical staff at the ‘Caps training facility of Saturday and then on Sunday they played games against the Whitecaps FC Vancouver Academy and other selected local opposition. Finally, on Sunday, it was off to the Caps MLS match at home to Portland, where Academy members were special guests pitch-side on B.C. Place field to watch the warm-up and meet some special guests.

“This is part of our inaugural year for the Kootenay Academy, and what a way to kick off the program with a great MLS weekend in Vancouver,” said Whitecaps FC director of soccer development Dan Lenarduzzi. “This was a great opporunity to bring our regional Academy Centre programs into Vancouver to get a taste of training and games in Vancouver with our staff and of course, to be our guests at B.C. Place to see a big MLS game.” Seven boys and girls Prospects training groups from U-11 to U-17 were selected this fall to take part in the Whitecaps FC Kootenay Academy

program which runs for seven months from September through April and includes eight training weekends in Nelson and four travel events. All sessions are developed by Whitecaps FC professional coaching staff and delivered in partnership with Soccer Quest. This

includes monthly coaching visits from Whitecaps FC staff including regional head coach David Broadhurst. “There’s a real buzz in the Kootenays about this program,” said David Spendlove, director of Whitecaps FC local partner Soccer Quest. “This Academy – and week-

ends like this – really grow the game and help bring young players from all areas of the Kootenays into the Whitecaps FC soccer network to connect them to opportunities they otherwise would not get to be part of.” The Kootenay Academy is part of the network of

Whitecaps FC Academy Centres, including locations in the Okanagan and Vancouver. Additional centres will be added to the network over the next year. For more information go to http://www.whitecapsfc. com/youth/programs/academycentres..

Drama was the name of the game in the Kootenay Savings Super League action last week.

classic game going for five ends. Skips Troy Albo and Theresa Hiram made clutch hit-andsticks or draws for one with their last rocks for a 2-2 tie after five. However, Albo was able to manufacture a deuce in the sixth, and turned that momentum into seventh and eighth end steals for a 7-2 win. The final game saw Team Ferguson jump out to an early lead, but the Fines foursome showed their resilience, and kept coming back. Skip Rob Ferguson made a delicate tap back for three in the first, then a  hit and stick for two in the fourth, but Ken Fines came right back with three of his own in the fifth. Again Ferguson made a take-out for another deuce, then stole the seventh for an 8-5 lead. Fines was forced to take one in the eighth, then surprised everyone with a steal of four in the ninth. Down two coming home, Fines racked on a guard with his last shot, and Ferguson drew in the house for two, and an entertaining 10-10 tie.

to give Maglio’s a steal of three and a tie game coming home. Morehouse buried one at the back of the four foot early, then created a protective stone wall in front of it. But the confident Beauchamp made a cross-ice raise to the button with his last rock, (arguably the shot of the year so far), leaving Morehouse no way to follow, and an improbable steal for an 8-7 Maglio win. After a great weekend at the Kamloops Cashspiel, the Desiree Schmidt rink had a slight let down, while running into a red hot 5N Plus team. Third Don Freschi caught fire, running two doubles in the second to set up a four ender, then a perfect hit and roll behind cover in the third leading to a steal of three. Skip Schmidt calmly drew to the four foot against five in the fourth, but couldn’t stop 5N Plus momentum,  as they scored two in the fifth, then another steal of three in the sixth,  cruising to a 12-2 victory.

Single man can date as many women as he likes Mailbox

unfair to both of us, but he claims he’s not married and will continue to call me until I tell him to stop. Since then, he’s phoned a couple of times, and I refuse to take his calls. Is this a case of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too? -- Daisy Mae Dear Daisy: It sounds like it, although as a single man, he can date as many women as he likes until he makes a commitment. You thought he had made one to you, but he believed otherwise. It’s possible he was attracted to you because you didn’t fawn all over him. But that results in a stable relationship only in the movies. In real life, such men

you are all staying in the house together, it is both considerate and proper to first ask the other residents whether they object to additional company. So while your brother can invite his friend when he uses the lake house on his own, he should ask the rest of you about inviting him when you are sharing the house and the meals. Dear Annie: I am concerned about your response to “Trying” which said it was OK to tell Mom that some of the grandchildren are hurt because they aren’t receiving as much gift money as others. I think this encourages a sense of entitlement. Instead of trying to correct Mom’s behavior, I would encourage “Trying” to stop comparing gifts and value Mom’s intention to add joy to the lives of all of her family members. -- Mike in Schenectady, N.Y. Dear Mike: We disagree. The only entitlement it encourages is that Grandma should

treat her grandchildren equally. If all the kids received a lesser gift, it would be fair, and the kids wouldn’t get the impression that Grandma loves some of them more than others. And we think Grandma should know this.

thrive on the attention, and since they rarely get enough of it from one partner, they look for it in many others. Right now, he thinks you’ll cave. If you want him to stop calling, you will have to tell him point blank. Dear Annie: I am the youngest of 10 siblings. Every summer, we share a lake house for a wonderful family reunion that extends over several days. Every year, my older brother invites an obnoxious friend to join us for the last evening’s family grill. How can I convince him that just because we are part owners doesn’t mean we can invite unwanted guests? He says it is his home and he can invite whomever he wishes. I say if he is not cooking the meal, it is not proper. The chef dislikes this guy as much as I do. Who is right? -- The Baby of the Family Dear Baby: As joint owners, you should each be able to invite guests. However, since

Dear Annie: I’m dating a guy who works out of town and is home every four weeks. “Jake” calls and texts often and says he misses me all the time. Here’s what bothers me: Jake always asks me how I feel about him. He says, “Do you even like me?” I think it’s because I don’t drop everything when he calls like the other women he has dated. I recently found out via Facebook that Jake went on a cruise with a woman he used to live with. She has been posting pictures of the cruise and saying how much she loves Jake. There is nothing about the cruise posted on Jake’s page. I told him about her comments. He replied that he didn’t know anything about it, and she was obviously just thanking all of the people on the cruise for their love and support. But he added that she’s a wonderful woman and they’d be in a relationship if she lived closer. I said he is being

Difficulty Level




Your horoscope By Francis Drake

For Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a willy-nilly, looseygoosey day, which is why shortages, interruptions and goofy mistakes are par for the course. Nevertheless, you’ll enjoy talking to others. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a poor day for important financial negotiations. Don’t spend money on anything except food. Don’t sign important documents. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) In a way, this is a pleasant day for you; although, you might feel disoriented. Don’t agree to deadlines or make promises to anyone. Don’t initiate anything. (Just tread water.) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Keep to your routine tasks today and expect minor interruptions and shortages. You might want to change your mind about something.

Thursday, November 1, 2012 Trail Times

If so, wait until tomorrow to see if this is really what you want. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Enjoy good times with female acquaintances today. Laugh it up, and keep things light. Don’t agree to anything important. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) People in authority will notice you today -- ideally, for something positive. (You hope.) Just be aware of this. Do not agree to anything important, and do not agree to set deadlines. Listen to others and make up your mind tomorrow. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You’ll be delighted if you can do something different today, because you don’t want to be bored. Therefore, break with your normal routine. Shake it up a little!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a poor day for important financial negotiations regarding inheritances, wills, estates or signing anything about shared property or debt. Delay these actions until tomorrow. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Because there is a goofy element in the air today, you’ll enjoy lighthearted exchanges with partners

and friends. However, avoid important commitments or agreements. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) This is a mildly frustrating day at work. Shortages, misunderstandings and delays will really impact your efficiency and productivity. Just be patient. Lower your expectations. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is a wonderfully cre-

ative day for you! It’s easy to put a new spin on things or see them in a new light. Enjoy romantic liaisons, sports and playful times with children. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is a lovely day to day to veg out at home and just relax. Entertain at home if you can. Do not sign realestate deals today. YOU BORN TODAY Many of you undergo great change









and transformation in your lives. Whether you seek to or not, you often have influence over others. In your personal life or your vocation, you are often very focused on money, power and sex. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will diminish or end to make room for something new. Birthdate of: k.d. Lang, musician, Marie Antoinette,
