Council pushing for increased safety and visibility at crosswalk

Village teen victim of hitand-run crossing highway on Halloween night BY ART HARRISON

Times Correspondent

A major pedestrian highway crossing in Fruitvale that has been the scene of numerous nearmisses in the past has now once again come to the attention of the Fruitvale Council after a hit-andrun Halloween night had near tragic consequences. At its regular meeting Monday night, council unanimously passed a motion to, once again, petition the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure for additional lighting and enhanced safety in the form of pedestrian activated flashing lights at the crossing of Highway 3B at Nelson Avenue, next to the Villagers Pub and Hotel. Village of Fruitvale Mayor, Patricia Cecchini, says she was approached by a constituent who reported her nephew was struck by

a passing vehicle Halloween night as he was crossing the highway at the crosswalk and the incident has renewed calls for crossing lights across Highway 3B. Fruitvale resident, Shalaume Leslie, said her 15 year-old nephew, Michael Hamilton, was on his way home after the village’s Halloween bonfire at approximately 8 p.m. Halloween night when the incident occurred. “He waited a for one vehicle on the highway to pass that he felt didn’t see him and tried to cross behind it when he was struck by a vehicle that came down Nelson Avenue,” said Leslie. “He wasn’t even sure what hit him.” Leslie said that, fortunately, her nephew wasn’t seriously injured in the hit-and-run but suffered scrapes, bruising, and a mild concussion. Leslie says his parents took him to Emergency at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital but didn’t call the RCMP until the following day. See POLICE, Page 3


MP ‘happy’ Obama won BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff

The impact of Tuesday’s U.S. presidential election isn’t limited to the confines of the American borders. The aftermath of President Barrack Obama’s re-election wasn’t lost on Canadian politicians including Alex Atamanenko, the MP for Southern Interior. “I’m happy that Obama won,” Atamanenko told the Trail Times from his office in Ottawa on Wednesday morning. And while the pundits dissected the Democrats’ victory and the Republicans’ loss, the


Volunteer Eleanor Harper receives help from client and volunteer Brad Longstreet with sorting the food bank’s staple of onions, carrots and potatoes.

Canadian parties were reviewing their own game plan. “I’m sure the strategists are looking at this and seeing how that will reflect on what’s happening here,” he said. “The one thing that I take from this, and I’m hoping, that it will put a brake on the whole Tea Party, the extreme do-away-withgovernment, libertarian philosophy that is even permeating our culture. “We cannot allow that to happen in this country and I think this election will help us put a stop to that.” See DEMOGRAPHICS, Page 3

Food bank demand continues to rise BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

With the growing number of Canadians using food banks across the country, Trail’s food bank is no exception. Tuesday, an hour before the 10 a.m. opening, the Trail United Church basement was already a beehive of activity, with volunteers preparing to feed over 100 people as they had the week previous. Three times this year, the demand has emptied the United Church’s pantry and no funds were left to purchase the staple soups and canned vegetables. Because the food bank purchases groceries with money

donated from the community, the volunteers kept their fingers crossed the next donation was on the horizon. “Volunteers just go out and buy at the case lot sales, with their own money, and hope to get reimbursed,” said Eleanor Harper, volunteer at the food bank since 2005. Brad Longstreet, a client and volunteer, who oversees the pantry inventory, at both the Trail United and St Andrews Anglican church food banks has watched the numbers grow. “In July 2011, there were 70 people using the food bank each week. That number doubled by January (2012), when we saw

140 people coming in to use the food bank.” The same is true at the food bank hosted once a month by the St Andrews Anglican Church. “About four years ago we were feeding up to 50 people. Today we are feeding over 100 people,” said Canon Neil Elliot. “Our patrons are not street people, we are seeing a whole range of people needing the help, particularly families who are the working poor.” The Salvation Army Food Bank, at Kate’s Kitchen, also reports the growing number of families with young children See FOOD, Page 3

CRA introduced a simpliSo if you have a complete


2011 log book, only 3 months have to be logged in 2012 (it’s now November btw), and likewise for future years. If at the end of the three month period you tracked, the rate is within 10 per cent of the base year rate for those same months, the entire year’s expenses (assuming you have accumulated all the receipts during the year) can be apportioned according to that base year’s annual rate. But of course CRA has created a formula to test this 10 per cent rule, so check out their website if you do have a variance you are uncertain about. On the flip side, if instead of paying all your own business use of vehicle expenses and deducting those as a business expense, you receive a vehicle allowance from an employer that reimburses you for those costs, the nontaxable maximum rates for 2012 are $0.53/km for the first 5,000 km and $0.47 for each additional kilometer. This amount flows tax free to you. Any amount paid over these rates is a taxable benefit to be reported on your T4.

A log book is still required. Likewise, if your employer provides a company vehicle to you and pays for all expenses for that vehicle and some of the use of that vehicle is personal, a taxable benefit of $0.26/km must be reported on your T4, unless you reimburse your employer for the personal usage portion of the expenses for that vehicle. Again, a log book is needed. On a related matter, the maximum value that can be attributed for a vehicle purchased for business use in 2012 is $30,000 plus taxes for capital cost allowance purposes and the maximum interest cost for the loan on that vehicle is $300/month. For leased vehicles, the monthly maximum expense is $800 plus taxes. CRA will soon announce new rates and values pertaining to all this for 2013.

Demographics changing in Canada as well, says MP


Fruitvale Mayor Patricia Cecchini and three of her daycare students, (Olivia, Paisley and Zoey) crossing Highway 3B.

Police seek help solving hit-and-run

FROM PAGE 1 “They said the RCMP constable told them they could file a report but they didn’t really have anything to go on,” said Leslie. After the Trail Times contacted the local detachment, a press release was issued by the RCMP asking for the public’s assistance. The vehicle is described as a darker, SUV type, said the release. Police are requesting anyone who may have witnessed the incident, or has any knowledge of it, to please contact the Trail and Greater District RCMP or Crime Stoppers. “We’ve had many reports of near-misses at this particu-

lar crosswalk and as a village we don’t want to have to wait until there’s a tragedy to see something done,” said Cecchini. “This is a family-friendly community and we want our citizens to be able to feel safe crossing the street.” Lila Cresswell, chief administrative officer for the Village of Fruitvale, related a lengthy history of the village requesting action on the hazardous crossing. “There was a petition in the 90’s to have something done to make this safer and then again the last village council brought up the issue,” said Cresswell. “I brought it up with the

ministry last year before they did the paving. We had positive response to other issues but they told us this was already signed appropriately.” Mayor Cecchini expressed her concern given the significant heavy truck traffic on the highway and because it is a major pedestrian crossing point from one side of town to the other. “This is a main crossing for kids going to and from the elementary school from the subdivisions on Fruitvale’s West side and for citizens crossing to get to the Beaver Valley Public Library,” said Cecchini. “We appreciate the efforts the ministry has made in the past but it’s not quite enough.”

Food bank use on the rise across B.C. FROM PAGE 1 coming in for food hampers. “Our food hampers have increased by 10 per cent since this time last year,” said Linda Radtke, Salvation Army Community Service manager. “We have seen a big increase in use of our soup kitchen as well, and it’s mostly families with young children,” she added.

In October, statistics released by Food Banks Canada, showed that food bank use in British Columbia increased by 6.6 per cent – more than double the rise of 2.4 per cent across Canada. Although the statistics and published reports more Canadians turning to food banks paint a grim picture, the

atmosphere in Trail’s food banks give a sense of welcome and community. The sounds of conversation, laughter and clink of coffee cups reflected another usual day at the United Church food bank. “We invite everyone to come in out of the cold to have coffee together and make a sense of community,” said Harper.

“Fifty per cent of the reason that people come here is to socialize,” added Longstreet. St Andrews food bank is also more than a food source to its people. “We don’t just provide a bag of food for people, we invite them in to sit down, have lunch, and feel a part of the community,” said Elliot.

FROM PAGE 1 Atamanenko agreed the fallout from the U.S. election was the Republicans inability to broaden its demographic appeal, which was limited to mostly white, middleclass men. The MP said the NDP began addressing that issue on the heels of the 2011 federal election. “We certainly are reaching out to people of all demographics. Even after the (2011 Canadian) election we went out working with students and reaching out more to the ethnic communities to hear their concerns. “We understand this as a party. These people are part of the total mosaic and we have to appeal and represent people from all sectors of society.” He noted even Alberta’s demographic, long a stronghold for the Conservative Party, is changing. Atamanenko pointed to Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi and the upcoming by-election in Calgary. “It’s not a given it’s going to be a Conservative walkover. There are other people who aren’t white, middle-class males that are in Alberta. “We have to keep that in mind as we try to go out and reach out to folks across this country.” B.C. residents were also watching the developments of initiatives in Washington state, which included the passing of a recreational marijuana proposal.

Atamanenko agreed the issue is growing and pointed to a resolution passed at the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities meeting and the support decriminalization has received from mayors, law enforcement officials and voters. “I think we need to really talk about this and come up with a solution because the current policy we have is not really working. “As we move forward I can see that coming up. But one has to appreciate that we are in really tough times in dealing with this current government. “We’re trying to make sure Canada survives and a lot of things that are near and dear to us. “But I wouldn’t say this debate is on the front burner. “We’re battling these guys to keep the values we have and some sense of democracy.” As for the never-ending gridlock clogging the U.S. Congress, Atamanenko can only hope Americans right their own ship. “People will realize that Obama has four more years, he is the president and if they want to move their country forward they’re going to have to work together. “The second thing, I think the world is a safer place as a result of his re-election. To me, I don’t think we’re going to have someone who may push the nuclear trigger. “I think Obama understands how to work with allies.”

The City of Trail would like to advise the residents of our current snow control procedures and policies. The City has 76 kilometers of roads to maintain throughout the City and has 14 pieces of equipment such as loaders, sand spreaders, snow plows and a grader to accomplish this task. From mid November to March, the City has at least one employee on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. (The number of employees involved in snow removal is dependent on the amount and duration of snowfall). City streets are maintained on a priority basis, which is as follows: #1 Priority Major collectors and emergency routes, i.e. Hospital Hill, Warfield Hill, Fifth Avenue Hill. Hills with extreme gradients and significant volume, i.e. Green Avenue. #2 Priority Bus routes. #3 Priority Downtown core, including downtown parking lots and the Aquatic Centre. #4 Priority Hills with lighter traffic volumes, i.e. Lilac Crescent, Park Street. #5 Priority All remaining residential streets and parking lots. When all 5 priorities have been accomplished, lanes will be plowed and all other streets widened. City owned sidewalks and the Victoria Street Bridge sidewalk will be cleared following heavy snowfalls. In general, sand is not used on level streets except when extreme icing conditions are experienced. Snow removal in the downtown area is undertaken after a heavy snowfall (this is normally done in the evening hours). Other designated business areas will be cleared as required. The City plow trucks plow with the traffic flow. Snow is cleared from the center of the road to the right curb side. The City will not clear snow windrows from any private driveway. Remember, citizens can greatly assist the snow control operation by adhering to the following requests: 1. Remove all unused vehicles, boats, trailers, etc. from the streets from November to March. 2. Ensure that any vehicles required to park on the street are parked as close to the curb or sidewalk as possible. 3. Refrain from shoveling or spreading snow onto the boulevard or into the roadway from sidewalks and private property, etc. 4. Obey snow removal signs. Property owners are required to remove any accumulation of snow or ice from sidewalks abutting their property. The City Works Department office in Glenmerry is open from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday to Friday and all snow related concerns or problems should be directed to this office at 250364-0840. Emergency calls outside of normal working hours are directed through to the Fire Department who relay the concern to the appropriate person for response. City related calls to the Fire Department should be through the 250-3641737 number. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable winter season and thank you for your patience and anticipated co-operation.

Tougher pot laws begin in Canada while two American states approve legalization THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The same day that voters in two U.S. states approved the legalization of marijuana, the Harper government in Ottawa was bringing into force tough new mandatory penalties for pot. The states of Washington and Colorado both voted in favour of ballot-box propositions Tuesday

removing criminal penalties for the possession and sale of recreational marijuana, while a similar provision in Oregon went down to defeat. Tuesday was also the day that drug measures in the Conservative government’s omnibus Safe Streets and Communities Act, passed last spring, came into full force

and effect. Canada’s new law provides a mandatory six-month jail term for growing as few as six marijuana plants, twice the mandatory minimum for luring a child to watch pornography or exposing oneself on a playground. “Today our message is clear that if you are in the business of producing, importing

or exporting of drugs, you’ll now face jail time,” Justice Minister Rob Nicholson said in a release Tuesday, well before the American polls closed. By day’s end, Colorado had voted to permit adults over 21 to grow up to six pot plants in private, and Washington had voted to permit statelicensed growers to sell adult individuals up to an ounce of marijuana at a time. Nicholson’s spokeswoman reiterated in an email that “our government does not support the decriminalization or the legalization of marijuana.” Contrast that with Geoff Plant, a former British Columbia

attorney general who supports the Stop the Violence BC coalition that’s campaigning for legal changes. “The take-away for politicians is to realize voters on both sides of the border are increasingly wanting this change, and that should make politicians both nervous about what will happen if they don’t listen to voters and also less nervous about the risk associated with change,” said Plant. The disconnect highlights a hemisphere-wide debate that is challenging the decades-long “war on drugs” that even the most staunch prohibitionist must concede has not succeeded.

Church leader for four decades dies at 98

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SOFIA, Bulgaria Patriarch Maxim of Bulgaria, the spiritual leader of the Balkan country’s Orthodox Christians who weathered a revolt over his communist-era ties to head the church for more than 40 years, has died. He was 98. The patriarch died of heart failure early Tuesday at a Sofia hospital where he had been for a month, the Holy Synod said in a statement.

The Holy Synod of 13 senior clergy will meet to make funeral arrangements and choose an interim patriarch until a larger Church Council is held within the next four months to pick Maxim’s successor, church officials said. O r t h o d o x Christianity is the Bulgaria’s dominant religion, followed by more than 80 per cent of the country’s 7.4 million people. Maxim was the church’s lead-

t’s hard to know how much impact New York mayor Michael Bloomberg’s comments about climate change after Hurricane Sandy had on the US election. It’s easy to overestimate that sort of thing, but President Barack Obama’s victory in several states was so razorthin that Bloomberg’s lastminute intervention may have been decisive. What’s crystal clear is that Obama himself didn’t want to talk about it during the campaign. Bloomberg, responding to the devastation he saw in New York City, laid it on the line. “Our climate is changing. And while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not have been the result of it, the risk that it may be... should be enough to compel all elected leaders to take immediate action.” The New York mayor, a former Republican, did not hesitate to assign praise and blame: “Over the past four years, President Barack Obama has taken major steps to reduce our carbon consumption, including setting higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks. Mitt Romney, too has a history of tackling climate change...He couldn’t have been more

right. But since then, he has reversed course.” He said this only five days before the election, in the immediate aftermath of a national calamity that may well have been climate-related. So did Obama pick up the ball and run with it? Certainly not. Apart from a one-liner about how climate change “threatens the future of our children” in a single speech, he remained stubbornly silent. Rightly or wrongly, Obama and his team have been convinced for the past four years that talking about climate change is political suicide. Nor did he actually do all that much: higher fuelefficiency standards for vehicles was his only major initiative. And Mitt Romney, of course, said not a word about climate change: you cannot take this problem seriously and retain any credibility in today’s Republican Party. So was all the instant speculation about how Hurricane Sandy might finally awaken Americans to the dangers of climate change just wishful thinking? Not necessarily. Obama faces a daunting array of problems as he begins his second term: avoiding the“fiscal cliff”, restraining Israel from


DYER World Affairs

attacking Iran, tackling the huge budget deficit, and getting US troops out of Afghanistan. But the biggest problem facing every country is climate change, and he knows it. Otherwise, he would never have appointed a man like John Holdren to be his chief scientific adviser. Holdren, a former president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, is one of the leading proponents of action on climate change. He is also savvy enough politically to understand why Obama couldn’t do much about it during his first term, and he didn’t flounce out in a rage when the president avoided that fight. Obama rarely start fights he cannot win, and it was clear from the day he took office in 2009 that he couldn’t get any climaterelated legislation through Congress. That’s why his

fuel-efficiency initiative was his only first-term accomplishment on this front: that did not require legislation, and was done as a regulatory initiative by the Environmental Protection Agency. To what extent has his re-election changed this equation? Second-term US presidents, who no longer have to worry about re-election, often act more boldly than in their first term. The US economy is clearly in recovery mode, and Obama will (quite justly) get the credit for that. That will give him more leeway to act on other issues, and the environmental disasters of the past year may finally be pushing American public opinion towards a recognition that the threat of climate change is real. There is not yet any opinion-polling data on that, but it wouldn’t be surprising. This year has seen meltdown in the Arctic, heatwaves that killed over ten percent of the main grain crops in the United States, big changes in the jetstream (which may be responsible for the prolonged high-pressure zone that steered Hurricane Sandy into New York), and then the fury of the storm itself. It has long been argued that what is needed to

penetrate the American public’s resistance to the bad news of climate change is a major climate-related disaster THAT HURTS PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES. Even if Sandy may not have been a direct consequence of global warming, it fills that bill. It may get the donkey’s attention at last. There is no guarantee of that, and each year the risk grows that the average global temperature will eventually rise by over 2 degrees C (3.6 degrees F) and topple into uncontrollable, runaway warming. Moreover, the Republicans still control the lower house of Congress. But hope springs eternal, and at last there is some. The past two weeks have seen an unexpected and promising conjunction of events: a weather event that may shake the American public’s denial of climate change, and the reelection of a president who gets it, and who is now politically free to act on his convictions. As “Businessweek” (a magazine owned by Michael Bloomberg) put it on last week’s cover: “It’s global warming, stupid.” Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Stewardship effort greatly appreciated Over the past two years I have frequented the Waneta area (the local airport, the rodeo grounds, the dog park) as I have been running along the highway from WalMart to the Waneta Expansion Project area. I know that many others (runners or cyclists) have also been along this stretch of road and have likely had similar experiences to my own. I certainly hope so! I was there today, running along the highway and it struck me that I ought to share my observations of the Waneta Expansion Project area with anyone interested in reading my letter.

Every single time I am in that area I encounter workers, trucks and truckers, heavy equipment and operators and consistently everyone is very cordial and cautious as they are passing me by. All of the folks that work in the area seem to have a great sense of pride in the work they do and the results that they leave behind. I also run off the highway on trails throughout the area, and again every area that I have passed through is very neat, tidy and has great signage. For all the partner companies that are in the area working on the Waneta Expansion

Project in particular, I want to say thank you very much for taking such great care of our local environment. We, the local residents, are very fortunate that we can continue to enjoy this area while this very important construction project is also occurring. Although much of the workforce (at the project) is here temporarily, they behave with a sense of belonging (like it is their own) that makes me so proud of them and the organizations they represent!! Congratulations on great stewardship. Sandi MacArthur Montrose

when our publically-funded universities put “academic freedom” to teach whatever they choose ahead of the interests of their students, and our country. Imagine a business where some products are in high demand, while other products languish on warehouse shelves. Yet that company’s employees have veto power over the reallocation of production resources, forcing it to turn out ever larger amounts of surplus products while failing to satisfy growing demand for others. That business would, of course, soon be bankrupt. But since our publicallyfunded universities can’t go bankrupt, they just keep spending public funds producing graduates without job prospects, while demanding even more money to expand enrollment in skills-short fields. But growing government deficits are ending that gambit. Without internal reallocation of funds, universities will continue to turn away upwards of half of applicants for such high-demand programs as Engineering, Medicine and Information Technology. Just as appallingly, over half of university graduates will continue to be doomed to low paid unfulfilling jobs, or no job at all. When next year’s crop of new graduates walks the convocation stages to receive their degrees, close to half won’t possess skills that have significantly improved their career prospects from those they possessed on their first day at university. In sharp contrast, those that have gained such skills can look forward to interesting and rewarding careers. And the classes of 2013 will come to know that the most damaging inequality is not of possessions, but rather the inequality of hope. Gwynne Morgan is a columnist for Troy Media

T1? T2?... BOOKKEEPING NEEDED? “Building Success Together”


Mets, Bay agree to part THE ASSOCIATED PRESS INDIAN WELLS, Calif. - Trail native Jason Bay and the New York Mets ended their unproductive relationship after three miserable seasons when they agreed Wednesday to terminate the outfielder’s contract with one guaranteed season remaining.


Trail’s Jason Bay is no longer a New York Mets outfielder as the two parties decided to go their separate ways Wednesday. The deal makes the 34-year-old Bay a free agent and allows the team to spread out the remaining US$21 million it owes him. “I still feel I have plenty to give to this game and that I can play baseball at a high level. But after serious consideration, both sides agree that we would benefit from a fresh start,” Bay said in a statement released by the team. After signing a $66 million, fouryear deal before the 2010 season, the three-time all-star hit .234 in three injury-plagued seasons with 26 homers and 124 RBIs, including


Firebird finally heats up

a .165 average with eight homers and 20 RBIs this year. Sidelined by concussions and rib injuries, he played just 288 games for the Mets. “I’m grateful we were able to reach an agreement to allow that to happen,” Bay said. “I’m excited to keep playing and have no intention of just walking away. “I enjoyed my time in New York. I have no regrets in signing with the Mets, other than that I wasn’t able to play to the level that the team, the fans and I all expected and that we weren’t able to win more games.” Bay was owed $16 million for next season and a $3 million buyout of a 2014 option, plus the final $2 million instalment of his $8.5 million signing bonus was payable by next June. The agreement allows the Mets to spread out the payments, a person familiar with the agreement said, speaking on condition of anonymity due to the fact the information was not released by the team. “Jason has a tremendous work ethic. There was never any question about it,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “Unfortunately, the results weren’t there, and we are in a results-oriented business.” An all-star in 2005, 2006 and 2009, Bay signed with the Mets after hitting .267 in his final season for Boston with career bests of 36 homers and 119 RBIs. “Jason is a great teammate, hard worker, standup guy, and true gentleman,” Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon said. “Like Jason, we had planned for the kind of production here that he enjoyed in Boston and Pittsburgh, where he established himself as one of the game’s top players.” See INJURIES, Page 12

BY TIMES STAFF In Trail Commercial Hockey League action at the Cominco Arena, Firebird rallied in the third period to win its first game of the season on Sunday, by serving up a 5-3 loss to the Arlington. Eric Hill took a pass from Trevor Fennell and pumped in his second goal of the night 1:13 into the final frame to break a 3-3 tie, while goalie Mike Kooznetsoff shut the door the rest of the way to put Firebird firmly in the win column.

The Greater Trail Bantam AA team prepared for the upcoming season by filling 4,800 sandbags. The tiring workout is a great way to raise funds, and also to help residents battle slippery conditions.

Bantam’s work pays off in wins BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

The Greater Trail Minor Hockey Bantam AA’s have proven to be great sandbaggers, but their hard work has definitely paid off. The Tier 2 Bantam players, coaches, and parents spent a full day last month filling close to 5,000 bags of sand for motorists looking to give themselves a little more traction over the winter. “It’s one of those things that we do as a fundraiser . . . it saves money for hockey trips and it’s really good for the kids to actually work towards something, and not just go out and sell chocolates, and its about getting out and working in the

However, the Big A stormed back scoring three straight goals from Jake Vlanich, Kris Kent, and Darryl Zol in less than five minutes to knot the game at 3-3. But that’s as close as they’d get as Hill’s winner decided it and Al Berglund would make it 5-3 with just 12 seconds remaining to ice it for Firebird. In other action Sunday, Re/Max squeezed out a 5-4 victory over

community,” said team director Lea McNaughton. The team distributes the bags to various service stations and companies throughout Greater Trail, and the funds raised will help offset expenses for travel to tournaments and play in the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association (OMAHA). “We’ve done it for the last couple years, so places like Teck, City of Trail and Fortis and most of the gas stations all have pre-order sheets, so we fill as much as they request and then we always do extra - so we’ll have lots stockpiled for when they run out.” The Bantams have had an exceptional start to the season

The implacable Cohen Rutherglen netted what proved to be the winning goal at 12:54 of the second frame to give the realtors a 5-3 lead, which held up despite a late third-period marker by the Tire’s Troy Palmer. The Tire grabbed an early 1-0 lead when Darrin Kissock settled a pass from Shawn Venturini and wired home a shot.

Injuries take its toll

FROM PAGE 11 Bay missed the final two months of the 2010 season because of a concussion sustained while slamming into the left-field fence to make a catch at Dodger Stadium. He was out for the first three weeks of 2011 with a strained ribcage. This year he was on the disabled list

from late April until early June because of a broken rib, then missed another month with a concussion when he crashed into the wall at Citi Field while trying to catch an inside-the-park homer by Cincinnati’s Jay Bruce. “There’s not a player who tried harder to succeed or was more frustrated and disappointed than Jason

himself,” Mets manager Terry Collins said. “I’ll miss Jason’s presence in the clubhouse as a player, teammate, and person.” Bay joins the exodus of big-name players from the Mets, who have finished fourth in the NL East for four straight years. Carlos Beltran, Jose Reyes and Francisco Rodriguez left a year ago.

Like Tambellini, Birks is off to Nova Scotia this weekend for the Top Prospects game, but the Cents still have plenty of offensive talent including former 35-goal man Derek Huisman. Trail played well in the last meeting between these two clubs, a 3-1 loss on Oct. 14 at Cominco Arena. The Smokies outshot, out-chanced, and out-skated Merritt only to fall victim to goaltender Tyler Steel, who has hit the ground running in his first season as the Centennials’ defacto number one netminder.

or and figure out your next move. Dear Annie: I am in my mid-20s, married with children. My mother lives with us. In fact, I’ve never lived without her, and now I want my family to have a place of our own. Having Mom here has been good because it helps cut expenses and she watches our kids. I love her so much, and she is my best friend, but I am really ready to do everything on my own. When I asked my mother about getting a separate place, it really hurt her. She cried because she wouldn’t be with her grandchildren every day. She was

Then tell your mother that this is what you are going to do, you’re sorry if she’s upset, you love her and she is welcome to visit. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Trying To Avoid a Christmas Circus this Year,” whose mother has been giving unequal gifts to the grandchildren. I have six grandchildren who receive different monetary gifts, and it has nothing to do with favoritism or need. I love them all equally, and their parents are well off financially. However, three of them are appreciative and send me thank-you notes. They are three sweet boys who love to hug and visit with me when I’m at their home. The other three, however, are spoiled and wouldn’t know a thank-you note from a grocery list. They take my gifts for granted and barely say hello when I visit. I finally decided that I would give every-

one presents and try to form relationships with all the grandkids, but would no longer serve as an ATM for the ungrateful, uncaring ones. As far as I’m concerned, a gift is something one chooses to give and should not be

expected or judged. -Texas Dear Texas: Although you say it is not a matter of favoritism, you have, in fact, learned to favor those children who are affectionate and grateful (which is not surpris-

ing). Young children need to be taught manners. While the parents should be doing that job, you are also in a position to be their instructor. You will be giving them lessons that will serve them well in the future.

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.

so upset that I gave in and said maybe we should just get a bigger house. Annie, I don’t want a bigger house. I want a small place with just my husband and children. We thought about getting a two-family home so Mom would be close by but separate. We can’t afford a brandnew house, although we are saving for one. How can I get Mom to understand? -- Lost in Mother’s Feelings Dear Lost: You don’t need Mom to understand. You are a married woman with a family. You are entitled to have a place of your own. Mom is never going to like it, but she can get used to it. And she will still see the grandchildren as often as you permit, which we suspect will be every day. And it won’t be that easy for you, either, but it’s time to cut the apron strings. Discuss this with your husband and form a united front.

Dear Annie: I have been married to my husband for only one month, and he already has had a brief fling with a woman from his office. This caught me completely off guard. I thought we were happy, and I am pretty sure my husband enjoys being married to me. He always says I am much more than he deserves. I have repeatedly asked him why he would cheat on me. He says he needs more sex with different females to be satisfied. What should I do? -- New Bride Dear New Bride: Your husband is telling you quite frankly that he needs more than one sexual partner. This means he is likely to cheat on you multiple times in the future. Unless this is your idea of a good marriage, we don’t see much hope. Get checked for sexually transmitted diseases, and then see a counsel-

Your horoscope By Francis Drake

For Friday, Nov. 9, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be patient and diplomatic in all your dealings with coworkers today. It’s too easy to lose it and then end up with egg on your face. (Not good.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a classic day for lovers’ quarrels or meltdowns with your children. Be tolerant and patient to avoid saying or doing things you might later regret. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Domestic conflicts are likely today. However, it takes two to fight. Be patient with loved ones to promote peace in the family. (For your own good!) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a mildly accidentprone day, but only because you might be impatient or angry. Accidents don’t have to occur if you guard against distractions or emotional

Thursday, November 8, 2012 Trail Times

upsets. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Quarrels about money or possessions might arise today. Ask yourself if any of this really will matter five years from now? Lighten up. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Today the Moon is in your sign at odds with fiery Mars. (That’s why others seem to have strong, volatile emotions and are easily quarrelsome.) Run for cover! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might feel ill at ease or disgruntled about something today. Be comforted by the thought that this will pass quickly, so no biggie. If you’re patient with yourself and others, you can enjoy this day. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Disagreements with groups (or perhaps just a friend) might take place today. Quite likely, an element of competi-

tion or rivalry is at the bottom of this. (Be cool.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Don’t lock horns with bosses or anyone in a position of authority today, because it won’t do you any good. Why lose face over something so incidental? Chill out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues, because peo-

ple are quarrelsome today! Meaning, don’t go looking for a fight. Talk about the weather or other safe subjects. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Disputes about shared property, insurance matters, inheritances and debt might arise today. Best to postpone these for another day. (It’s not a pretty picture.) PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be patient with partners

and close friends today, because bickering and arguing are par for the course. Since you know this, why even go there? Be kind to yourself and others. YOU BORN TODAY Your energy is strong and very physical. You love your creature comforts and the good things in life. Although easily seduced by temptation, you acquire a philosophical wisdom as the years go by. You always like to be in control of









things. Good news! Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big! Birthdate of: Erika Mann, author/journalist; Gabrielle Miller, actress; Carl Sagan, astronomer. (c) 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Fund remembers victim of Pines Bible Camp windstorm By Cassandra Chin Grand Forks Gazette

The Richard Fehr Memorial Fundraiser has been set up to raise money to send children with special needs to summer camps each year in memory of Richard Fehr. Richard Fehr died during the windstorm on July 20 at Pines Bible Camp in Grand Forks.

Amy Fehr, Richard’s mother, hopes that this will help children with special needs go to summer camp across British Columbia. “The main reason this is being done is because (Pines Bible Camp) was the happiest place for Richard. Everybody was equal there and in my heart, the way I’m going to keep on remembering

Richard are through the smiles of the kids with special needs,” she said. “It’s not just going to be concentrated in Grand Forks, it will be throughout the province.” Richard’s birthday, on June 16, will continue to be celebrated at Pines as the opening day, as well as a fundraiser.

The Local Experts™

Residents can donate their recycled bottles at the Grand Forks Bottle Depot. J. A. Hutton Elementary School will hold a raffle, with the money going towards Richard’s fund. To donate visit the Richard Fehr Memorial Fundraiser on Facebook. A donation can also be made to CIBC account 122 6932.
