Online contest touts local ski towns and resorts Rossland/Nelson entry advances to next round in Ski Town Throwdown BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff

Rossland residents might not realize it yet but their ski town is up against the top towns in North America in an online competition presented by one of the top ski magazine’s in the world. The joint Rossland/Nelson entry was selected by Powder magazine’s editors for its Ski Town Throwdown, an online voting contest. Mike Rogge, managing editor of Powder, said it was a natural to include the two local resorts. “It’s simple, they’re badass. You’d be a fool not to select them,” he told the Trail Times from his office in San Clemente, Calif. “Our associate editor spent a good time in Nelson and I think it changed him for the better.” He said the West Kootenay slopes are known for its abundance of powder, which explains why the editors also included Fernie and Revelstoke, along with Whistler, as the other Canadian entries in a field of 32 towns. The competition is set up in a bracket-style format with four regions featuring eight towns and seeded by the editors. The contest allows people to go online and vote for their favorite. Rossland/Nelson is the top seed in its eightcity bracket, which includes Whistler and See NEXT, Page 3

Christmas decorations taking shape Volunteers needed to help dress up downtown BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

The scent of Christmas was in the air at Columbia Valley Greenhouses on Friday, as volunteers from Trail Community in Bloom were busy creating festive baskets. The greenery is part of the downtown winter lights decor. This year, the foliage for the baskets was collected by helpers who trimmed tress from under the power lines, so instead of compost, the clippings have a second life as a decoration. So far, volunteers Ingrid Enns and Lisa Derby have arranged more than half of the 60 baskets that will be hung from the lampposts along Bay and Cedar avenues. “The greens will keep well and don’t require any maintenance,” said Enns. “They will be a beautiful decoration

well into the new year, as long as it stays cold.” Residents interested in helping bring Christmas cheer to the downtown are being asked to give a hand this week. “Its lots of fun, and bring your husband along,” joked Enns. On Wednesday, Enns and Derby will be at the greenhouse from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to assemble the rest of the baskets for a decoration work party on Nov. 17. Volunteers are still needed to help decorate downtown. “It doesn’t have to be an all day thing. Just stop your car for 15 minutes and help hang a string of lights,” Enns suggested. As first time coordinator for the town decorations, Enns wanted to carry the idea of the Trail Community in Bloom forward into a year-round project. Her creative vision to adorn the town with a traditional look of wreath and nature-inspired baskets began when the theme for the festival was chosen.

Around town, shoppers may see men tipping their top hats to damsels in petticoats, as the theme this year is Victorian inspired, The decorations will set the backdrop for this year’s fourth annual Silver City Nites, slated for Dec 7. The festival is a chance to celebrate winter while encouraging residents to gather downtown to support local business. That night, part of Cedar Avenue will be closed to traffic, to make way for the Candy Parade and tree lighting ceremony. Downtown shops will be open late for Christmas shopping deals, and the United Steelworkers Local 480 will be on site serving up free hot chocolate and hot dogs. The preparations start Wednesday at the greenhouse where Santa helpers are encouraged to drop by after 9 a.m. to help assemble baskets. For more information contact Enns 250-368-3963.

Region drenched in soggy October

BY BLACK PRESS Last month’s weather could be summed up in one word: soggy. Monthly statistics provided by the Southeast Fire Centre’s weather services in Castlegar show the region received about 85 mm of rain in October, 70 per cent more than the average of 48 mm. This despite the fact the first 13 days of the month were dry with relatively mild daytime temperatures. “The remainder of the month was far more eventful and typical of late October with numerous Pacific disturbances producing frequent/ significant rain and even a few thundershowers,” forecasters Ron Lakeman and Jesse Ellis said in a press release. Clear skies early on Oct. 4 through Oct. 7 saw the first freezing temperatures of fall. A record daily low of –2.5 was set on Oct. 4. The coldest temperature of the month was recorded on Oct. 5 when it dipped to –3.8. The all-time low of –11.3 was set on Halloween 2002. The warmest it got was 22.2 degrees on Oct. 10 although that still fell well short of the record 27.2 set in 1980. Cooler temperatures in the latter half of the month combined with moisture from a large upper trough resulted in the first wet valley snow of the season on the morning of the 23rd, which largely melted once it hit the ground. The average temperature for the month was close to normal.

Bray traveled to Chicago for award FROM PAGE 1 to a whirlwind trip to the Windy City where she was presented with the award and met some of the teachers she corresponded with while taking courses. She first learned about the school through a visual aid display at a meeting for the Canadian Institute for the Blind (CNIB). “You don’t have to sit in a classroom to learn new things, you can do it on our own at home,” she said. Bray, who lost some of her hearing at fiveyears-old and is legally blind due to glaucoma, has worked at the Trail library for over 30 years. She said she jumped at the chance to study and improve her skills. Bray received her large print books and assignments by mail. In a little over three years, she has completed 26 courses, all with high marks. “The Hadley teachers are also blind, so they understand,” she explained. “They were always willing to answer any questions and help in anyway they could. Bray wants to get the word out about the school to other blind and visually impaired members of the community. “All the courses are free, so there is nothing to stop you,” she said. Information and applications for the school can be found on the CNIB website A3


The success of the Trail Outdoor Market continued with the transition into the Cominco Gym on Friday. A wide array of vendors drew a large crowd to the indoor facility. The next indoor market is set for Nov. 16.


Nazareth fans still seeking refund on tickets BY SAM VAN SCHIE The Nelson Star

Hundreds of people who bought tickets to see Scottish rock band Nazareth play at the Nelson Community Complex have been waiting more than five months for a refund. The show, originally booked for July 10, was cancelled due to lack of ticket sales. Those who had bought a $35 ticket — about 500 people — were told they

could either trade their ticket for one to a different show by the same promoter or have their money refunded after Nov. 1. But now that November has rolled around, promoter Roger Carruthers of Rockopolus said in a press release that “due to legal matters with the bands’ management, refunds are still pending.” He went on to explain that all the money collected from

ticket sales was given to the bands as a deposit, which hasn’t yet been refunded. “Refunds will be provided when funds are available,” Carruthers said in the release. He didn’t provide a new date for ticket buyers to collect their refund. Meanwhile, the staff at Phoenix Computers have have been feeling the heat from ticket buyers who are getting impatient for their

refunds. “Our phone was ringing off the hook on November 1,” said Scott Newland, owner of Pheonix Computers. “Every second person into the store was putting their ticket on the counter and asking for money.” Newland is hoping to distance himself from the debacle by encouraging people to contact Rockopolos directly at rockopolus@

Next round of voting set for Nov. 28 and 29 FROM PAGE 1 towns in Montana, Oregon, Washington and Colorado, dubbed the Backscratcher Region. The combo cleared its first hurdle last week by garnering more votes than Maine’s Sugarloaf ski resort. It was close as Rossland/Nelson defeated Sugarloaf by a narrow 1,3081,028 margin. So the local resorts are hoping people get on the bandwagon for the next round at the end of the month. Anyone can vote for their favourite ski town during allotted periods at The next challenger for Rossland/

Nelson in the bracket will be either Whitefish, Mont., or Whistler. That voting is set for Nov. 28 and 29. Rogge explained the concept was another way to engage readers. “It’s been interesting. We didn’t know what to expect to be honest. What I’m learning is that people are really stoked on where they live. And that’s been the coolest thing for us. “If your town or ski area is on the list it’s obviously a great place to ski and live.” He said the majority of comments have been positive and people enjoy having a forum to tell other skiers in North America why their place is so

great. He added certain regions are really trying to drum support like Montana University, which passed out flyers to encourage people to vote. No word yet from Red Mountain Resort on any plans to promote the vote. The top town will be crowned after the final voting on Dec. 19 and 20. The visibility and free advertising that comes with a Powder Magazine title certainly wouldn’t hurt generating publicity for the local resorts. Powder Magazine has a paid circulation of over 120,000 readers and is widely read around the world via its website.

Provincial Unions ask court for help against Chinese miners THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - Two labour unions are asking a federal court to overturn temporary work permits issued to Chinese workers at a coal mine in northern British Columbia, arguing that there are unemployed Canadians who could fill the jobs. Permits have been granted under the federal Temporary Foreign Worker Program to 200 Chinese workers to conduct exploration work at HD Mining International Ltd.’s Murray River coal mine near Tumbler Ridge, B.C. The company has said it was not able to find workers in Canada with the specialized skills necessary. But the court action filed by the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 115 and the Construction and Specialized Workers Union Local 1611 maintains that is not the case. “There is no evidence of a labour shortage nor is there an absence of suitable Canadian citizens or permanent residents for the jobs,” said the application. It says HD Mining received 300 applications from Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada to work at the underground coal mine “despite the fact that HD Mining did not advertise widely and imposed unreasonable and unnecessary requirements on Canadian applicants.” Those requirements have not been imposed on the Chinese workers, the court documents

allege. The documents also accuse the company of paying wages to the Chinese workers that are about $10 an hour below the prevailing wages in the industry in Canada, and no benefits. “Local 115 has members who are qualified and available to perform the type of work which is involved with bulk sampling who are presently unemployed or underemployed and who would be willing to work at the new mine,” Brian Cochrane, business manager of the operating engineers, said in an affidavit filed with the court. Cochrane says 474 miners are out of work in B.C., more than 100 of them in the northeastern corner of the province. The unions say the approval of the Murray River workers was done in violation of the federal regulations, which stipulate that foreign workers can only be used in situations where a labour shortage exists. They want the court to declare the permits invalid, and quash the decision to issue them. The application also seeks an order preventing Human Resources and Skills Development Canada and Citizenship and Immigration from issuing any further offers of employment or permits to HD Mining until the court matter is resolved. A spokesperson for HD Mining was not immediately available for comment. The company is a partnership between China-based Huiyong Holding Group and Canadian Dehua International Mines Group Inc.

Follow U.S. lead on pot, says MLA By Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – B.C. political leaders should stop pointing fingers at Ottawa and follow the lead of U.S. states on marijuana legalization, Vancouver-Fraserview MLA Kash Heed says.

A former B.C. public safety minister and commanding officer of the Vancouver Police drug and gang units, Heed spoke out as voters in Washington, Oregon and Colorado prepared to vote Tuesday on initiatives to regulate and tax the sale of marijuana for adults. Heed said Premier Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix have no difficulty speaking out about federally regulated interprovincial pipelines, but both defer to the federal jurisdiction on marijuana law. Action is needed to address the gang violence that goes along with the marijuana trade, he said. “There’s a lot of hypocrisy going around Victoria right now,” Heed said in an

interview. “They’re speaking out of both sides of their mouths on different issues.”  Both Clark and Dix have admitted to trying marijuana in their younger days, but both have indicated this year that they don’t plan to push for legalization. Dix said last week he has long advocated decriminalization, which would reduce simple possession to a ticket offence. A new Angus Reid poll commissioned by a pro-legalization group called Stop the Violence B.C. shows support for legalization is up to 75 per cent. That’s up six per cent from last year, and Heed has joined former attorneys general, police officers and others who have called for action.

The front and back of the new Canadian $20 bill is shown in a handout photo. On Wednesday, the Bank of Canada will begin circulating a new $20 bill made of polymer instead of paper. The new bill pays tribute to the contributions and sacrifices of Canadian men and women in all military conflicts and is being released just before Remembrance Day.

Changing trends in workplace make it harder to qualify for EI THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - A trend towards more short-lived and part-time jobs has made it harder than ever for many Canadians to qualify for employment insurance benefits, even if they’ve contributed to the federal program, according to data released Monday. Statistics Canada says only 78.4 per cent of Canadians who lost their jobs last year were eligible for benefits - the lowest rate since the agency started collecting comparable information in 2003. It’s also down from 83.9 per cent who were eligible to collect benefits in 2010. Put another way, less full-time permanent work means fewer employees who work enough hours to qualify for EI benefits. “The share of these contributors who last worked in a permanent, full-time job - where one can generally have enough hours to qualify for EI - declined from 51 per cent to 45 per cent in 2011,” the agency said. “At the same time, there was an increased share of those who last worked in temporary, non-seasonal work, where one generally accumulates fewer hours.” To be eligible for EI benefits, contributors require from 420 to 700 hours worked, depending on the unemployment rate in their region. Firsttime employees, or those with limited work experience in the past two years, need 910 hours. Economist Erin Weir, president of the Progressive Economics Forum, said the report shows the rules are not working for many Canadians who lose their jobs through no fault of their own. “The case is quite compelling for the government to focus on making employment insurance benefits more accessible,” he said. Bank of Montreal economist Doug Porter says the numbers could also be interpreted to show that fewer permanent full-time workers are losing their jobs - but he agrees that the more vulnerable workers are being left out in the cold. Monday’s report found there was on average of 1.34 million people unemployed in 2011. Of those only 867,000 were contributors to EI and only 695,000 lost their jobs involuntarily and hence were eligible for benefits. And of those, 545,000, or 78.4 per cent, received benefits. As a percentage of all unemployed, only 40.6 per cent were eligible for EI in 2011.

Pressure mounts over veteran burial funds THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Veterans Affairs Minister Steven Blaney, who championed improvements to a federal burial fund for impoverished exsoldiers, was put in the awkward position Monday of defending his own government’s inaction and the fact that over two-thirds of applicants are rejected. The Last Post Fund, an independent agency that administers a federal funeral and grave-marker program for poor veterans, has turned down 67 per cent of the applications submitted since 2006. Both the fund and Blaney’s own department have lobbied the Harper government to re-define the eligibility criteria and to increase the $3,600 stipend given to families who do qualify, but to no avail. Blaney says unlike the previous Liberal government, the Conservatives have not cut the fund. “This is a program for which we have maintained benefits, contrary to the former Liberal government, which made cuts to

this program,” Blaney told reporters following a ceremony in the Senate to mark the beginning of veterans week. “Our firm intention is to maintain this program. We are covering all the funeral and burial costs and we will keep on this way.” Just over 17 years ago, Jean Chretien’s government introduced changes to the Last Post Fund that were aimed at slowing its growth, measures that were later amended in 2000, the last time the federal government overhauled the program meant to give poor veterans a decent burial. The fund has urged the Harper government to re-write the eligibility criteria, which limit payments to those who fought in the Second War War or Korea or were in receipt of veterans disability benefits, to include more modern veterans. It has also asked for an increase in the stipend. Over the last two years, the veterans department has proposed an overhaul, estimated to cost between

Back by Popular Demand

$5 million and $7 million annually, only to be shot down by the cabinet committee that decides what goes into the budget. The executive dir-

ector of the fund has praised Blaney and blamed the government. Ex-soldiers are outraged and Mike Blais, of Canadian Veterans

Advocacy, says that kind of penny-pinching treatment is not what members of the military expect when they enlist and put their lives on the line.

Some real manipulation involving smart meters


wo very different scenes unfolded at opposite ends of the province last week.

In the remote northwest corner of B.C., the first power line towers started going up to connect Highway 37 communities to the BC Hydro grid. The Nisga’a, Tahltan and other aboriginal communities will soon have reliable power, as well as much-needed training and jobs during clearing and construction. Meanwhile down on the Gulf Islands, the most hysterical, dishonest campaign against smart meters I’ve heard of so far went into high gear. I’ve obtained a mass e-mail from the head anti-smart meter organizer on Salt Spring Island that shows the mentality at work here. (Corix is the BC Hydro contractor that has installed more than a million meters and has approached the Gulf Islands with trepidation, the last area of B.C. to be

done.) “Corix is attacking with 30 trucks on Mon the 22nd,” Chris Anderson wrote in October. “Poelpe [sic] are advised NOT to attend the Victoria pipeline rally but instead help defend agianst [sic] spymeter installations in their neighbourhoods.” Anderson’s selfappointed supporters fanned out across the island, attempting to turn away installers on the false assumption that everyone has fallen for their crackpot fear campaign. They managed to stop 12 per cent of the installations. Coincidentally, Anderson has been doing a brisk business selling $35 meter locks to gullible Salt Spring Islanders in recent months. They don’t work, and you’re not allowed to lock BC Hydro property anyway. Others have been sold official-looking “no smart meter” signs that don’t identify the customer, so they don’t work



either. As for the term “spymeter,” I’ve reported on the weird theories spread by Bill Vander Zalm in a video interview, where he claims smart meters are part of a global surveillance system that can even tell what you’re cooking. Vander Zalm has been outdone by one Brian Thiesen, who styles himself as the “chairman” of “Interior Smart Meter Awareness.” In September, the Merritt Herald reported on Thiesen’s presentation to 20 unwary people in

a church basement. He claimed wireless meters not only provide video surveillance of your house, they are also responsible for “dying bees” and “defective sperm and eggs” as well as disease and fires. Thiesen even claimed radiofrequency signals can “pull your PIN number directly out of your head.” Is there no limit to the nonsense some people will fall for? Surrey Fire Chief Len Garis co-authored a study that shows residential fires have decreased with the advent of smart meters. Which brings me to the ugliest opposition to this modernization, the criminal element. Here in North America’s marijuana mecca, installers have encountered many meter bypasses, wired up to steal hydro and conceal high consumption for grow ops. In addition to being

illegal, they are a fire hazard that is removed when discovered. Installers also find more sophisticated cases of hydro theft. Removing the mechanical meter reveals a hole cut in the back of the case, so the dials can be turned back to hide a grow op’s power consumption. No wonder some people want to lock them down. Of course all of this is defeated by a smart grid system, so the growers and other crooks are angry. A BC Hydro official told me about one case where a user was told he had a bypass, and that it was being removed. His bill went from next to nothing to a reasonable level. The customer complained to the media, falsely inflating the amount of his bill and blaming an inaccurate smart meter. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Airport report lacks proper knowledge of region “One advantage that the Trail Regional Airport has is that the mountains in the vicinity (5 nautical miles) of the airport, range from 5700’ to 6500’ above sea level while the mountains around the West Kootenay Regional Airport (Castlegar) range from 6500’ to 8000’. “The lower terrain can facilitate the movement of weather due to fewer obstructions. Having said this; one would expect that generally speaking, weather between the communities would be very similar given their proximity and being

in the same valley.” (page 86 Wave Point Consulting’s report on TRA Economic Impact Assessment, August 21, 2012). Huh? If the weather were that similar then we would not be seeing the frequent flight cancellations to or out of Castlegar airport. Two of my friends have been rerouted to Cranbrook from Calgary or told to take the bus to Calgary. Another friend tried to get out to Vancouver out of Castlegar and all three flights were cancelled. Luckily, TRA got in and out

all three of its flights to and from Vancouver. The preparers of the report cited above are two retired federal public servants from the lower mainland. I doubt they’ve ever tried to get in and out of Castlegar airport during October to May. What they also lost sight of in their lengthy report is service to the travelling public. They don’t seem perturbed to send travellers over the Salmo Creston in winter to take flights to or from Cranbrook. Rose Calderon Trail

Grants help renovate Beaver Valley Manor The Beaver Valley Manor Board and residents of the Beaver Valley Manor received a grant from the Columbia Basin Trust which allowed the Manor Board to renovate bathrooms in several suites. The final results in those rooms have made a big difference to the affected tenants. Using this money allowed the Board to put in new flooring,

basins, faucets and toilets. As well, installations provided new tub surfacing and tub surrounds for the bath areas in six bathrooms. All of this has greatly improved the appearance of the bathrooms and has made the suites both more modern and environmentally efficient. The Beaver Valley Manor provides low-cost housing for

seniors in our area. Without grants such as these, it would be very difficult to afford the improvements our 36-year old facility requires. A big thank you goes to the Columbia Trust Basin for its support of our facility. Bob Bastian Chairman, B.V. Manor Society Fruitvale

Movember helps focus on men’s health An editorial from the Toronto Star Can a November moustache stop a man from committing suicide? Movember organizers hope that sprouting a “Tom Selleck” or “Hulk Hogan” will get men talking about a topic that is still too often treated as taboo: their mental well being. Let’s face it, most guys would rather stick needles in their eyes than discuss intimate feelings. But the change Movember is seeking could make sensitivity as manly as a Trucker `stache. This year, Movember’s wildly successful prostate cancer awareness campaign is giving 40 per cent of its fundraising dollars to mental health programs for men. That is a huge boost, considering that last year’s Canadian fundraiser collected $42 million. Movember started in Australia in 2003 and has become a worldwide movement, a massive fundraiser that asks men to become “walking billboards” while

raising discussion on their health issues. Last year in Canada, 245,000 men grew moustaches - more than any other country. Participants like Justin Trudeau (who grew a goatee) call themselves “Mo Bros” and start on Nov. 1 with a clean upper lip before letting their hair grow in. That new facial hair initiates conversation about prostate cancer and, now mental health. By taking the stigma out of emotional distress, much as it did for prostate cancer, Movember is creating a catalyst for change. Our brothers, husbands, fathers and sons are woefully silent about depression and anxiety, leaving them four times more likely than women to commit suicide. The Canadian Mental Health Association calls men’s mental health problems a “silent crisis.” Adds the association’s national CEO, Peter Coleridge: “Many men, maybe because of

the macho stereotype, believe they are not susceptible to depression.” In fact, 10 per cent of men experienced mental health symptoms, according to the StatsCan Canadian Community Health Survey. That’s almost the same as the 11 per cent of women affected. Movember director Pete Bombaci says difficult conversations can be made easier in the light-hearted campaign that asks men to raise money by growing - and fabulously styling - their facial hair. “We hope that we can get men to come out from behind their shell, and reduce the stigma,” he says. As many women already know, and Movember has now figured out, the key to getting a man’s attention on a serious subject is to cloak it in a bit of fun. Our society adulates machismo, so perhaps the moustache, a classic symbol of manliness, can help broken emotional lives grow strong again.

Henri Audet

Guy Fawkes Day

Quebec engineer founded cable and media empire

THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL - Henri Audet, an electrical engineer who founded the Quebec-based Cogeco cable and media business, has died at age 94. Audet began what has become Canada’s fourth-largest cable company and one of Quebec’s largest media companies in 1957 with a TV station in Trois-Rivieres, Que. His son, Louis Audet, now heads the business, which had consolidated revenue of $1.4 billion in fiscal 2012 and 3,500 employees in Ontario and Quebec. Control of Cogeco Inc., Cogeco Cable Inc. and other subsidiaries remain controlled by the Audet family. Henri Audet began his career as an engineer in 1945 with the CBC. He was a member of a committee in 1949 that studied the development of foreign television in preparation for TV in Canada. In 1957, he left the CBC for a career in private broadcasting and became president of Television St-Maurice Inc. By 1976, he was chairman and CEO of Cogeco Inc., positions he held until 1993. It wasn’t until December 2006, that Henri Audet stepped down from his company’s board of directors at the age of 88. Henri Audet received a numerous honours throughout his career and in 1984 was given the Order of Canada and was inducted into the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame in 1993. In 1980, he was a member of a Canadian delegation that travelled to Japan to study the future of satellite communications. “Mr. Henri Audet was and remains a great source of inspiration for all the members of the extended Cogeco family,” said Jan Peeters, president of the boards of Cogeco Inc. and Cogeco Cable Inc.

Benefit concert raises millions for storm relief

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - NBC says its benefit concert for Superstorm Sandy victims drew nearly $23 million in donations to the American Red Cross. Friday’s hour-long telethon included performances by artists native to the areas hardest-hit by Sandy, including New Jersey natives Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Joel of New York’s Long Island. Others who took part in the special included Sting, Christina Aguilera, Mary J. Blige, Tina Fey and Jon Stewart. The telethon’s mood was sombre but hopeful, from Aguilera’s “Beautiful” to Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer.” Pledges made by phone and online totalled $22.9 million, NBCUniversal and the American Red Cross said.

George Lucas

‘Star Wars’ creator not done with filmmaking yet THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK George Lucas is done with “Star Wars,” but not with filmmaking. The “Star Wars” creator says he still plans to make his “own little personal films.” Lucas spoke Friday night while attending Ebony magazine’s Power 100 Gala, days after announcing the sale of his storied

Lucasfilm to Disney for $4.05 billion. The deal would allow for more “Star Wars” films. While Lucas will be a creative consultant, longtime collaborator Kathleen Kennedy will be in control. When asked if he’d have a hand in picking a director for the films, he said, “I’ve turned it over to a wonderful produ-

cer, Kathy Kennedy, and I’ve known her for years. She’s more than capable of taking it and making it better than I did.” Lucas admitted mixed emotions about letting Lucasfilm go. “It’s very sad. It’s 40 years of work and it’s been my life, but I’m ready to move on to bigger and better things.” Among them are

his educational foundation, which will be a major beneficiary of the money he got for Lucasfilm. “Mostly it will be philanthropy but I’m also going to make my own little personal films,” he said of his plans. His last film was this year’s “Red Tails,” which told the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a legendary black

flight unit formed in 1941 that debunked widely held beliefs that black pilots were incapable of fighting in combat. While he described that film as a labour of love, he said, “I’m going to go further out than that. I barely got ‘Red Tails’ into the theatres. The ones I’m working on now will never get into the theatres.”


Free performance promotes album and voting

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON - Thousands of Aerosmith fans watched the band perform on Monday in front of the building in Boston where they once lived. People hung out windows, crowded fire escapes and stood on roofs on Commonwealth Avenue to watch a free concert meant to encourage voting and promote the band’s new album, which comes out Tuesday,

Election Day. The band played songs including “Walk this Way,” ”Sweet Emotion“ and some from their new album, ”Music from Another Dimension!“ The caravan of seven duck boats, with the band riding in “Beantown Betty,” shut down city streets as a police escort led the way from TD Garden arena to 1325 Commonwealth Ave. Some fans lined streets to

wave to the band as their caravan rolled past landmarks including Boston Common and City Hall, and many skipped work or school to go the show. Boston University student Becca Emmetts, who lives in Aerosmith’s former building, sent a friend to her physics class with this message explaining her tardiness: “Aerosmith was playing on my front stoop.”

The show caused transportation disruptions with a trolley service suspension, road closures and parking bans, but police said the show went off without any major hitches. “Everything was fantastic. The logistics worked out well,” Boston Police Superintendent-in-Chief Dan Linskey said after watching people of all ages rock along with the band’s music.

The Vernon Vipers overpowered the Trail Smoke Eaters on Saturday skating to a 9-2 win, but Trail managed a split as they completed a dramatic 5-4 comeback against Chilliwack Chiefs on Friday.

Smokies ride roller-coaster weekend BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

A dramatic come-from-behind 5-4 victory over Chilliwack Chiefs on Friday had the Trail Smoke Eaters on cloud nine, but the Vernon Vipers quickly brought them back down to earth with a 9-2 humbling on Saturday. Trail spotted the Chiefs a 3-0 lead before mounting a comeback that would see captain Garrett McMullen cap it with a goal at 7:26 of the third period. Scott Davidson made a nice tapeto-tape pass from behind the net, in front to a waiting McMullen who made no mistake in lifting it over Chiefs’ goalie Josh Halpenny for the winner. “I was super pleased, to be down 3-0 and get a win was huge confidence for the boys for sure,” said Trail Smoke Eater coach and GM Bill Birks. Trail goaltender Adam Todd picked up his first win for the Smoke Eaters, and responded well after a tough first period, stopping 28 of 32 shots. “I thought the last two periods he was really good,” said Birks. “He settled down and made some big saves for us.” Jake Lucchini got the rally rolling, when he wristed a quick shot

past Halpenny for his third goal of the season with just over two minutes remaining in the first period. Austin Adduono then slipped one by the Chiefs goalie 26 seconds into the second frame, however, Chilliwack replied, and were up 4-2 before Brent Baltus got Trail back within one when he deposited Davidson’s rebound off the boards into the back of the net at 13:17 of the second. With the Chiefs leading 4-3 in the third, Luke Sandler broke in on a two-on-one and using the decoy smartly snapped a low shot past Halpenny to tie it at 5:19 mark, setting the stage for McMullen’s winner just minutes later. On Saturday, the intensity of the previous night seemed to be snuffed out early, as Brett Soleway scored 16 seconds into the game, to set the tone in favour of the Vernon Vipers. “I didn’t think we played that bad, it wasn’t that good, but it wasn’t a 9-2 game from the effort from our players,” said Birks. Trail native and former Beaver Valley Nitehawk Craig Martin had a two-point night for the Vipers, scoring his first goal against the Smokies, a team he played nine games for last season as an affiliate player. “It was nice to come back to Trail and have my parents in the stands,

and friends watching as well,” said Martin on Monday as he was en route to Michigan Tech for a recruiting visit. Martin and the Vipers have had an up and down season, but Saturday night’s win was its third in a row, as they get set to play Trail again on Friday in Vernon. “The 3-0 loss (their last visit to Trail) was a tough one, but we just knew we had to get shots on Stanwood, and get guys to the net and it seemed to work pretty well Saturday night,” said Martin. Adam Tambellini and Brett Corkey both had four-point games for Vernon, with each netting a goal and three assists, while Vernon outshot the Smokies 47-43. The Smoke Eaters hit the road for a pair of games in Vernon and Merritt on the weekend. By the numbers: The Smoke Eaters have three wins in their past five games and have killed 22 of 28 short-handed situations, while the power play is 5-for-17 over that time. The disparity in power-play chances may be a concern, with the Smokies giving up an average of almost six PP’s per game while enjoying just over three per game themselves. However, they have scored just one less PP goal in that time.

Djokavic-Murray epic on tap Silence key in labor talks Cream of crop contend at ATP THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON - Playing in his opening match at the ATP finals, Novak Djokovic dived right in. The top-ranked Serb twice landed hard on the court Monday at the O2 Arena, but it didn’t stop him from beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 7-6 (4), 6-3 and setting up a Wednesday showdown with Group A rival Andy Murray. “All those balls were out of my reach, so I tried to dive,” Djokovic said. “I don’t usually dive that much. I don’t usually spend that much (time at) the net as well.” Djokovic entered the season-ending tournament after losing in the second round of the Paris Masters last week. Despite describing himself as being physically down in that loss, the Australian Open champion showed no signs of fatigue against Tsonga. But he did struggle to impose his game on his French opponent, who had three break points in the first set but missed out on all of them. “To be quite honest, he was the better player throughout the first set,” said Djokovic, who broke Tsonga twice in the second. “It was very important after the first set. Obviously I relaxed a little bit more, stepped into the court, played

more aggressive, and it resulted with a straightset win.” The next match is not likely to be as cut-anddry. Djokovic and Murray have played a few epic matches against each this year, including a fiveset Murray win in the U.S. Open final. “When I’m playing Andy, I need to be ready for long rallies and physically demanding match,” Djokovic said. “So I’m going to have a day tomorrow to recover and get ready for next challenge.” The ATP finals is the season-ending tournament for the top eight players in the world. Fourth-ranked Rafael Nadal, however, pulled out because of injury. Group B, which includes six-time champion Roger Federer, will play Tuesday at the O2 Arena. The third-ranked Murray needed a wake-up call in the early match before beating Berdych 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, and he got it shortly after failing to convert his 10th break point. Murray was playing in Britain for the first time since ending the country’s 76-year wait for a men’s Grand Slam champion. Although he reached the Wimbledon final and won the gold medal at the London Olympics, no British man had won a major tennis title since Fred Perry in 1936. “I wasn’t thinking about that when I went out to play the match,” Murray said of his victory in New York. “But the noise and the atmosphere at the beginning of the match was great.”

THE CANADIAN PRESS For those hoping to see a resolution to the NHL lockout, silence is the best sound that can come out of Tuesday’s collective bargaining talks. Negotiations have reached a critical juncture with the league and NHL Players’ Association scheduled to meet in New York City. Very little was said after an informal meeting between deputy commissioner Bill Daly and NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr over the weekend - something both sides have quietly warned might happen when progress started being made. The trend continued on the eve of formal talks resuming. When asked Monday if he was optimistic that negotiations could pick up steam this week, Daly responded: “Sorry, going to keep quiet between now and the end of these meetings.” These are clearly delicate times. At this point, it

seems the only thing that would see either side resume giving public updates is a breakdown in negotiations. Internally, there’s a sense that the time for waging a public relations battle is over. The lengthy meeting between Daly and Fehr, held at an undisclosed location, serves as an interesting precursor to Tuesday’s bargaining session. In brief statements, the men acknowledged having a “frank discussion” on the “most important issues” while sitting down together for several hours. One veteran labour negotiator indicated that the quiet setting would likely have been beneficial to the deputies at this stage in the process. “If there’s lots of wood to chop, it will happen in private,” he said. The biggest issue the sides have to bridge a gap on is the mechanism that would see all existing contracts honoured in full, even after the players’ overall share in revenue is reduced

to 50 per cent from its current position of 57 per cent. A “make whole” provision in the NHL’s Oct. 16 offer attempted to do that, but the NHLPA didn’t like that deferred payments would count against the earning potential of future players. The league has since indicated a willingness to see owners assume more of the liability but hasn’t yet presented a formal offer on that matter, according to a source. There are also contract issues to sort out. Among the changes suggested by the NHL are a five-year cap on contracts, entry-level deals that last two years instead of three and unrestricted free agency beginning at age 28 or after eight years of service. NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr doesn’t believe players should have to give up any of the concessions they earned in those areas during the last round of negotiations. The best-case scenario for the NHL is a shortened season that begins on Dec. 1.

Young hawks bounce back

FROM PAGE 11 The ability for the team to bounce back after suffering potentially demoralizing losses is some consolation for the Hawks’ coaching staff. “It’s just the inconsistency of having young players and having 13 rookies in the lineup every night is tough.

“It’s just the work ethic that needs to be in place in order to give yourself an opportunity to win the game.” Beaver Valley plays a pair of divisional games this weekend in Castlegar on Friday against the Rebels at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday versus Grand Forks Border Bruins in Beaver Valley at the same time.

NEW YORK - The weekend box office was not only undeterred by the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, it was buoyed, as Disney’s “Wreck it Ralph” opened strongly with $49.1 million. The animated family film was aided by the large number of East Coast children out of school on Friday and families looking for matinee diversion. It’s the largest box-office opening ever for a Disney Animations release. Robert Zemeckis’ “Flight,” starring Denzel Washington, also opened to robust ticket sales. The Paramount drama took in $25 million despite playing in only 1,884 theatres - or about half the number “Wreck it Ralph” played in. The Universal kung fu flick “The Man With the Iron Fists” opened with a debut of $8.2 million.

doned him, and he is homeless. Paul said he “needs to learn,” but I was worried sick and was so glad to see him. But when Paul saw him eating at the kitchen table, he threatened to move out. I thought I had found a home for Alan at the local mission, but discovered he was blackballed because of some incident years ago. Now he’s on the street with no medicine, friends or money. But, Annie, he’s my son. No one should live like this. Paul refuses to let him come back, even conditionally. I’m not crazy about it, either, but I don’t know how

the younger sister and a lovely Catholic Bible to the bride and groom (a Catholic friend suggested this). I was quite thrilled to do this for them. But here I sit, months later, with no thank-you note, not even a preprinted acknowledgment. If the bride and groom are too busy, even a note from my cousin would diminish my disappointment. What do you think of this? -- B.W. in Florida Dear Florida: We think this is quite rude. You can, of course, call your cousin and ask whether the gifts were received. A lost item is always a possibility. And if you don’t attend these events or know these people well, you do not have to send anything more than a card with your best wishes. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Bring Back Wedding Etiquette” about the couple who requested

donations for their honeymoon. I was aghast, to put it mildly. Had I received that invitation, I think I would have made a donation to a national food bank in their name and sent a note saying, “A couples

massage might last an hour. This donation in your name will feed a family for several days.” -- Omaha Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers

Sudoku is a number-placing puzzle based on a 9x9 grid with several given numbers. The object is to place the numbers 1 to 9 in the empty squares so that each row, each column and each 3x3 box contains the same number only once.

to get Alan the help he needs. What can I do? -- Heartbroken Mother Dear Mother: This must be terribly painful for you, but there are limits to how much you can help a child who is on drugs and refuses to help himself. Contact Nar-Anon ( at 1-800-477-6291 and ask for assistance. You also could call or visit the local mission and see whether they will give you a referral to another facility that might take Alan in. Dear Annie: In June, I received an invitation to my second cousin’s high school graduation. The same day, I received an invitation to her sister’s wedding with a note saying she also had just graduated from college. Mind you, I had not heard from this side of the family in years. (My husband recently died, and I received no condolences.) I sent a respectable amount of money to

Dear Annie: My husband, “Paul,” wants nothing to do with my 36-year-old son, “Alan.” I admit that Alan lived with us too long and has done some terrible things, but he’s my son and I love him. I’ve enabled him because of his health problems. He has diabetes, epilepsy and vision problems and, in the past year, has lost 80 pounds. A few weeks ago, Alan threatened suicide and had a knife in his hand. Paul didn’t know what to do and called the police to have Alan arrested. We found out later that he was doing drugs, so Paul kicked him out and issued a restraining order keeping his stepson away from the house. Alan was gone for several weeks, living with various friends. Despite the restraining order, he came over yesterday morning. He hadn’t eaten in days. His friends have aban-

Your horoscope By Francis Drake

For Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Even though your conversations with partners and close friends are vigorous and dynamic today, agree to nothing. Wait until tomorrow to make any commitments to others. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) There might be a lot of activity at work today; nevertheless, postpone important decisions until tomorrow. Expect shortages and delays today. Minor errors and misunderstandings are likely. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a highly creative day for your sign! It’s also a wonderful day to party and to enjoy the company of others. Enjoy sports events or participating in physical activities. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Family discussions might be vigorous today, especially

Tuesday, November 6, 2012 Trail Times

if you are talking to an older female relative. Don’t let anyone talk you into doing anything or agreeing to a deadline. Wait a day to agree to anything important. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You likely will feel indecisive and at loose ends today. Relax -- a lot of people feel this way today. However, this is a creative day for those of you who write, act or teach. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is an extremely poor day to make important financial decisions. It’s also a poor day to shop for anything other than food. Forewarned is forearmed. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Because you are thinking outside the box today, you will be full of original ideas! Trust your creative powers. Enjoy casual social outings. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) In group situations, do not

volunteer for anything today. And don’t agree to anything important. (That’s because whatever begins today likely will change down the road.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) In discussions with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs, avoid making a commitment or agreeing to a deadline. Just bide your time. Don’t let others pressure you into anything. CAPRICORN

(Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Travel plans might be canceled or delayed today. Ditto for anything related to school and higher education. Just carry on -- business as usual. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Don’t make promises with partners and close friends today. Delay important decisions until tomorrow. Don’t agree to anything important. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)

Just accept the fact that this is a goofy, inefficient day at work. Stick to business as usual. Don’t act on new ideas that occur to you today. YOU BORN TODAY Because you’re a natural investigator, you’re curious about everything, and you love to explore the unusual. You’re not afraid of obstacles; in fact, you rise to the challenge. You want to know what makes things work or how things evolve. You hate









to be bored, which is why you’re not afraid to learn by trial and error. Your year ahead will be highly social and beneficial for all relationships. Birthdate of: Guy Gavriel Kay, author; Yunjin Kim, actress; Joni Mitchell, musician. (c) 2012 King Features
