BY TIMES STAFF A man who tried to be a Good Samaritan during an intentionally set West Trail house fire Friday night received a lungful of smoke for his efforts. Around 11:40 p.m. a Trail man was walking past 683 Binns St. when he noticed flames inside of the house. He ran into the house several times to check for anyone trapped inside, said Sgt. Rob Hawton of the Trail and Greater District RCMP. However, unbeknownst to the man,

the house had been vacant. “He was subsequently transported to the Trail hospital for smoke inhalation, and has since been taken to St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver,” said Sgt. Hawton in a press release. The Trail Fire Department was able to save the house and damage was limited to the front room area, with smoke damage throughout the rest of the house. The fire appears to have been set intentionally, said Sgt. Hawton. “This incident is being investigated as an arson.”

The Christmas spirit rolled into Rossland on Saturday with its annual Rekindle the Spirit of Christmas celebration. The event included a parade down Columbia Ave., led by none other than Santa Claus. Kora Douglas was the lucky young girl to walk hand-in-hand with the man in red before he headed back to the North Pole for his final Christmas preparations.

They both have multiple losers in what will likely be the trump suit. North has two more high card points and South has the same three aces as last week. Even when not vulnerable, this hand is a disaster. The contract: Two spades doubled I. The opening lead: The king of clubs The play: Declarer will ruff two clubs in his hand for down one. The result: Two spades doubled, down one for -100. II. The opening lead: The ace of spades and then a switch to the king of hearts which East will ruff to draw the last trump in declarer’s hand. The play: The defense will get four spades and three clubs for down two. The result: Two

spades doubled, down two for -300. These two results are not that terrible except that the opponents have nothing. At matchpoints, these will be low scores. Furthermore, partner will probably compete

to a high level with proper support and then the result will be worse. Note: All the bridge columns may be viewed at http:// watsongallery.ca  by following the bridge links.

Precipitation total keeps climbing By Timothy Schafer Times Staff

Logo sought for skate park By Sheri Regnier Times Staff

The Trail skate park committee is rolling out an invite to the youth of Trail to sharpen a pencil and sketch a design that could be chosen to represent the soon-to-be park. In November, the committee encouraged youth input and excitement into the on-going skate park process, by announcing a logo contest for individuals 19-years of age or younger, who are Trail residents or attend schools in the area. The winning logo will be used to brand and represent the Trail all-wheel skate park, and will be displayed on the skatetrail.com website. The logos will be judged by members of the fundraising committee, with the rule that all submitted work must be original and not based on any pre-existing design. The deadline for submissions is Jan. 30 at 3 p.m., and the contest winner will receive an iPod touch, donated by AM Ford. The decade-old dream of Trail youth, many who are now young adults, may finally become reality as half of the funding for the proposed

skate park is in place. “I know this project has had many bumps and obstacles,” said Patrick Audet, member of the skate park committee. “Time has passed by, but finally this project is ready for completion.” The skate park committee has raised $286,250 towards the project, and in July, the City of Trail committed to pay half of the $550,000 cost for the proposed park. “The skate park is a done deal,” said Audet. The estimated cost for the proposed concrete park does not include other elements like a viewing area, green space, washroom facility, children’s playground and pathway connections included in the chosen design from last fall. The 8,000-square-foot recreational facility would be open to skateboarders, roller skaters, inline skaters, scooter riders and BMX bike riders. The planned site for the project is across from the Colombo Lodge in the gulch. For more information about the logo contest or to view the skate park plans, visit skatepark.com.

When it rains it pours in the West Kootenay. With one month left to go in 2012, the West Kootenay is contemplating a new name change to the Wet Kootenay based on its current performance. Buoyed by another record month of precipitation in November—175 per cent of normal—the latest statistics from the Southeast Fire Centre show 2012 could become the wettest year on record after another 162.9 millimetres of precipitation fell in the last month. Meteorologist Ron Lakeman at the fire centre said numerous Pacific disturbances have produced frequent and at times heavy precipitation, making last November the wettest November since 1984. But heavy precipitation is not a signal of a coming physical transformation of the Earth, as interpreted by those who mark Dec. 21, 2012— the end of the Mesoamerican long count calendar—as a pivotal time. Instead, the storm cycle has brought exceedingly large amounts of precipitation to the region this year, said Lakeman, it’s just a little unique to get it all in one calendar year. “The only thing that has any relevance as far as the calendar year is we had a La Niña last winter and it typically does produce cool, wet conditions in the spring,” he said. “That, to a certain degree explains what happened in spring. As far as why we were so wet in (fall), it’s tough to say. Weather patterns change

on a frequent basis and this just happens to be what we have at the moment.” He predicted more rain in the picture for the week, bringing the total precipitation to around 30 mm., with another 20 mm. needed to break the annual record. Normal precipitation for the year is around 755 mm.—and at the end of November 980 mm. has fallen, 50 mm. short of the record from 1976. There is some debate as to whether 2012 might break the record, said Lakeman, since a cooler weather pattern will be setting up later in the week, bringing with it a dryer northerly flow with less moisture content. For those looking for snow, the rain will turn to snow by Friday. It doesn’t look like a lot of snow, said Lakeman, but the air will be cooler to facilitate the production of snow. And with around 140 centimetres nestled nicely on the backcountry slopes of Kootenay Pass, there is no fear of local slopes not being open when Red Mountain opens their runs on Dec. 8. “It is accumulating nicely at the upper elevations,” Lakeman said. “We have just been on the mild side in the lower areas. All of the heavy precipitation down here has done nothing but keep the grass green.” For those who are looking to the Mayan calendar fearfully and planning for the polar shift on Dec. 21, Lakeman did not have a prediction for the day. “I have no vibe yet to anything linked in that sense,” he said. “But it’s a unique pattern and there is no getting around that.”

Scanner provides non-invasive assessments FROM PAGE 1 By trading in the current unit, and taking advantage of other rebates, IH was able to secure a highly favourable, time sensitive price for the new unit for Trail, said the IH press release. The RHD contributed $200,000 to the purchase with the Ministry of Health

kicking in an additional $300,000 toward the $500,000 total cost of the scanner. “Our contribution to this new CT scanner and other important capital projects and equipment show this Board’s commitment to all the residents we serve,” said Marguerite Rotvold, RHD board chair.

A CT performs cross-sectional views of all types of tissues. The scan is a preferred method used to diagnose various cancers and vascular diseases, and it clearly shows injuries of bone, muscle, and spine in highly detailed cross-sections. One of the most promising applications for this latest generation

scanner is non-invasive assessment of coronary arteries. “This is a great investment in patient care for the entire region,” said Hampf. “It may reduce the need for patients to travel to a larger centre for post cancer treatment and complicated follow-up, by having the scan performed locally.”

Rossland/Nelson will move on to Round 3 of the Ski Town Throwdown after collecting enough online votes to bump Whitefish, Montana out of the competition. The local ski hills collected about 300 more votes than Whitefish during two days of voting on November 28 and 29. The final tally was 3,491 to 3,176. Rossland/Nelson was behind in the first half of voting, but pulled ahead in Day 2. Local supporters logged more than double

Rossland/Nelson will move into Round 3, along with eight other ski towns in North America. Voting for the next round will go December 12-13 and will be against the winner in a competition against two Colorado ski towns — Crested Butte versus Steamboat Springs. Only two BC ski towns remain in the competition — Rossland/Nelson and Fernie. Whister and Revelstoke were eliminated.

Provincial Jumbo Protest Snowy owls wowing bird lovers in Lower Mainland THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - Snowy owls from the Far North are wowing bird lovers in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland. About two dozen of the wideeyed Arctic birds of prey have taken up winter residence in Boundary Bay regional park in Delta, B.C. “I don’t know quite what’s happening in the snowy owl world but they’re there,” says Anne Murray, an amateur naturalist and author for Nature Guides B.C. “It looks like it’s going to be another good year.” It’s the second winter in a row that snowy owls have migrated en masse far south of their summer habitat in the North. Last year, more than 40 owls spent the winter in the Vancouver-area park, and there were reports of owls spotted as far away as Hawaii and Virginia. Experts say the birds wander far from home when a population boom forces younger owls out in search of more plentiful food. “When there’s a lot of lemmings, the owls have a lot of young ones

and then if the lemming population drops, there’s nothing for the baby boom to eat, and so they disperse. It’s often the younger ones,” Murray says. A single owl can hatch a dozen eggs during peak years. Snowy owls are large, standing up to two feet tall with a wing span of about 1.5 metres. Males can weigh in at 1.8 kilograms and females at 2.3 kilograms. Unlike most owls, they are active during the day as well as night - an adaptation to the extreme climate of the North, where at the peak of summer there is 24-hour daylight and in winter, 24-hour darkness. Males are pure white, even their claws covered in downy feathers, and females are white with some dark brown feathers. The snowy owl is the official bird of Quebec. “They’re wonderful birds to see. Last year thousands of people came out to see them, families and people from overseas. It’s not so often close to urban areas you get to see a beautiful Arctic owl,” Murray says.

THE CANADIAN PRESS BURNABY, B.C. Unionized workers at the Insurance Corp. of B.C. have voted 71 per cent of ratifying a new contract with the public auto insurer. The agreement covers about 4,600 employees, members of Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union, who staged a threeday strike during the summer and overtime bans to press their demands. The contract includes a four per cent wage increase that will be implemented in stages, with the first increase retroactive to July 1, 2012. The agreement, which expires in July 2014, also includes improvements to maternity and parental leave.

Beware of stormdamaged vehicles

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER The Insurance Corp. of B.C. is warning vehicle purchasers to beware of a possible flood of vehicles from the United States that have been flood-damaged by Hurricane Sandy. The public auto insurer issued the warning after the American Association of Motor Vehicle Transport Administrators said tens of thousands of vehicles on the U.S. east coast were submerged in salt- and bacteria-contaminated waters. Those who buy from a private seller are urged to watch for damp or musty odours inside the vehicle and to look for signs of rust in the vents and test all electrical aspects of the vehicle.

Police probe children’s death CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL - A Quebec father of three young children was struggling Monday to make sense of the tragic death of his three children. The children Lorelie and Anais, aged five and two, and their-four year-old brother Loic - were found dead the previous day after a 911 call from their mother’s home in Drummondville, a town about an hour outside Montreal. P a t r i c k Desautels said the deaths left him speechless. He asked journalists to allow the family to grieve in peace. The father was scheduled to meet with reporters near the family business in SteChristine, Que., on Tuesday afternoon. The circumstances surrounding their deaths remained mysterious Monday. Quebec provincial police said they hoped that the mother of the three children Desautels’ ex-wife - could deliver some answers. The mother, 33, was also transported to hospital for unspecified reasons. She was described as an “important witness” by police.

Canadian labour expected to face another tough year THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL - After nearly a year of searching for a job close to home, welder Garnet Cooke is preparing to leave family behind and follow the trail blazed by many other unemployed Ontario workers who have headed west in search of a new life. “I have been in this field for 35 years (and) I don’t wish to take any more steps backwards,” says the 54-year-old laid-off Electro-Motive worker. Dave Clark said he’s gone through various stages of grief since he too lost his job at the London, Ont. locomotive plant after 18 years. “There’s some really bad news out there. People are splitting, families are breaking apart, some people are filing for bankruptcy already. It’s tough.” Both men say they are examples of the struggles that many Canadian workers have faced over the past year as employers try to squeeze out costs in the face of a weak economy. While the creation of Canada’s largest private sector union is intended to strengthen the position of labour in 2013, observers including union officials - say it will still be a challenging year given economic conditions. Cooke said his life has been turned upside down since U.S. heavy equipment giant Caterpillar Inc. (NYSE:CAT) closed the Electro-Motive plant early this year. It relocated to Indiana after workers refused to accept a 55 per cent cut in wages and bene-

fits. He’s gone from earning nearly $35 an hour to living on $850 every two weeks from employment insurance. “If it wasn’t for the fact that I had my next older brother move in with me to help alleviate some of the bills and the stress of having to pay full rent, I don’t know what I would be doing right now,” he said. Workers received $1,500 parting cheques and severances ranging from $13,000 for those with three years’ service to $148,000 for employees with 30 years on the job. As an older worker, Cooke says he sees few job opportunities as companies prefer younger workers willing to take deep wage discounts. So Cooke is working on his red seal - an interprovincial stamp on his welding certificate - and plans to head to the oilsands in Fort

McMurray, Alta. From there he’s willing to criss-cross the country back to his birthplace in Nova Scotia if he can secure a job with Irving Shipbuilding, which won a huge government contract. Clark said his anger has turned to hope as the former General Motors employee awaits for his name to be called from a preferential hire list that will give second-chances for work in Oshawa, Ont., to about 145 of Electro-Motive’s 481 laid off workers. GM sold Electro-Motive in 2005. “I’m very fortunate, very blessed to have that, but in the meantime I have to survive until March, April to get my call,” the 49-year-old father of three said. The head of the Canadian Auto Workers union said Electro-Motive is a painful example of the labour climate in Canada, where com-

panies feel emboldened to seek deep cuts in wages and benefits - some earned through decades of negotiations. “They have a confidence level that I’ve not seen in my 35 to 40 years,” Ken Lewenza said from Toronto. “Today in manufacturing, for example, holding your own is a victory because the corporations have so many demands against the union it’s almost unconscionable.” In addition to cutting wages and benefits, companies are routinely trying to move workers from costly defined benefit pensions, which guarantee payments in retirement, and are imposing two-tiered models where new hires earn less and have to contribute more towards their pensions. The CAW was able to secure new collective agreements this year for Canadian employees of the Detroit 3 automakers. But the union had to agree to a two-tier wage system, including a 10-year progression to full pay and a hybrid pension plan for new employees. The automakers

wanted to see new hires permanently earn less than current employees. Lewenza hopes next year’s formation of Canada’s largest private sector union - through the merger of the CAW and the Communication, Energy and Paperworkers union - will strengthen to voice of workers to fight political changes that affect their lives. Still, Lewenza doesn’t anticipate the pressure letting off in 2013 as long the as economy remains under stress. “I see us fighting like hell as we did in 2012,” he said. “This is a battle and I don’t see that changing in the near future because public policy mechanisms are being put in place to force workers to feel the uncertainty driven by the economy.” The as-yet unnamed super union will hold its founding day convention on Labour Day weekend 2013, where it will approve the union’s constitution, name and logo, and elect its first leaders.

a labour expert at Queen’s University, said the merged union - which will represent more than 300,000 workers - is a significant event that will help the union put free collective bargaining and labour relations on the public agenda. But Ian Lee of Carleton University calls the merger a defensive strategy to address the steep downhill decline in union membership in Canada, to 16 per cent of the private sector and 33 per cent overall. While private sector workers are feeling the effects of the economy and globalization, they and public workers also face federal and provincial governments willing to intervene in labour disputes. Smith said 2012 was a tumultuous year for labour relations in Canada, partly because of the “unprecedented” intervention of the federal government. “I think it’s fair to say that unions and unionized employees, particularly in the public sector, feel they are under siege.”

Will the truth go to die on Deficit Hill?

W

hatever happens in the provincial election five months from now, taxpayers should insist that it be the last spring vote. Now I know this isn’t sexy like the horse race of popularity polls so loved by the TV news. But integrity of public financial information is the next vital step in democratic reform, even more important than scheduled election dates. And the B.C. tradition of tabling untested election budgets, shutting down the legislature and firing up the campaign buses, has to end. The B.C. Liberals are on track to surpass the NDP on fudge-it budgets, having put millions into TV ads that insist the 2013 budget will struggle into the black. This is the hill Christy Clark has chosen to die on. Glen Clark set the modern bar with his 1996

election budget. After a run of red ink, it conjured a tidy little surplus that helped the NDP squeak out a win over the plaid-shirted Gordon Campbell. Campbell’s noisy exit had its roots in his 2009 fudge-it budget, which clung to an outdated $500-million deficit forecast that had already melted down along with banks, auto makers and U.S. real estate. After the election, British Columbians found out we were really $2.8 billion in the red. Not one to waste a good crisis, Campbell ordered the harmonized sales tax. Now Premier Clark and Finance Minister Mike de Jong are proposing to balance the budget and shut down the HST money machine. Clark gave a speech in Coquitlam the day before last week’s budget update, warning it “won’t be pretty.” And it’s not. In September the cur-

TOM

FLETCHER B.C. Views

rent-year deficit forecast jumped above $1 billion, largely due to a glut of natural gas. The latest update pushed it near $1.5 billion. Natural gas royalties are bumping along the bottom, no big change there. But now coal prices and shipments are down, and a slow real estate market has pinched the flow of cash from Bill Vander Zalm’s legacy, the property purchase tax. I erred in a previous column, saying this year’s

deficit is partly due to a staged repayment of federal HST transition money. Not so. That entire $1.6 billion was booked in last year’s budget, pushing that deficit to a record $3 billion. This means the current $1.5 billion bleeder is based strictly on current revenues, debt servicing and spending. So how is this sucking chest wound going to suddenly heal next spring? De Jong provided an early version of his answer in his September financial statement. Amazingly, it projects a recovery of more than $100 million in natural gas royalties next year. Hmmm. Liquefied natural gas exports to Asia are still years away, and the U.S., our only current energy export customer, is developing its own huge shale gas and shale oil reserves. In another forecasted miracle, sales tax revenue

is expected to dip by a mere $120 million as the old provincial sales tax returns next year. In 2014 it is projected to bounce right back to where it is today, around $6.1 billion. That’s odd. When former finance minister Kevin Falcon announced the transition back to PST last May, he described annual revenue loss of about $500 million the first year, and more than $600 million the next. Granted, business investment credits and HST rebates to the poor also end, saving the government a pile of cash as this significant tax reform dies. But it still looks like another fudge-it budget, designed to help another premier avoid the political graveyard at the foot of Deficit Hill.

Letters to the editor

Awareness campaign clarified

First of all, many thanks for the article and photo in Wednesday’s Trail Times (Ribbons support commitment to end violence, Trail Times Nov. 28). We really appreciate your interest in the “Remember and Take Action to End Violence Against Women” awareness campaign which is symbolized by wearing a white ribbon. However, I do want to clarify certain aspects of the article and hope you’ll give us room in the Letters page to do so. First of all, although Trail

FAIR Society staff are very active in the Campaign, there are many other agencies and groups who are also participating. These include members of the Inter-Agency Community Collaboration on Violence Against Women, Poor No More, United Church Lifelong Learning and Men Speak Out Committees. Secondly, our awareness campaign goes from November 25 to December 10 which is U.N. Human Rights Day – a significant date because, although,

in law, “Human Rights are also Women’s Rights”, this is often not true in reality, especially in the area of social and economic rights. Thirdly, the vigil of remembrance forms only a short part of our Dec. 5 public event.

Airport’s future impacts everyone “Larry, Larry, quite contrary. How does your garden grow?” Not very well, it seems. (Trail airport service review grounded, Trail Times, November 28) Alas, some of our regional district partners would rather we grew “ortiche”, commonly known as nettles, than improve the Trail airport at Waneta. I can understand some of our partners are unwilling (or unable) to contribute more funding to the overall improvement of air service to the area. What I don’t understand however is why some of our part-

ners don’t want the coalition of the willing to undertake the task of growing the airport “garden”. It makes one want to wail, “Please, release me, let me go.” (Apologies to Engelbert Humperdinck.) On Thursday, November 29, the Times reported how a committee of the willing (WK Transit open houses will help shape the future) actually listened to the ground transportation needs of area students. This coalition managed to get everyone on board to develop a bus service to

Castlegar, Nelson, Trail, Nakusp and the Slocan. Kudos and continued success growing a transit “garden”. Would that our regional district contrarians get on board to improve air service. No such luck, it seems. So, if you have complaints about your latest air travel misadventures out of or into Castlegar airport, don’t keep grumbling to yourselves. Rather, get up the courage and call Larry Gray, Chair, RDKB and let him hear you. Rose Calderon Trail

Time to cue the elevator music

An editorial from the Winnipeg Free Press: The discussion about global warming has become something like elevator music. It’s there in the background playing the same tune over and over, but few people are actually paying enough attention to name the melody. That all changes, however, following a freak storm or some other extreme weather event. Then the need for urgent action -- both mitigation and adaptation -- takes on greater form. Environment Minister Peter Kent admitted as much a few weeks ago when he told reporters that hurricane Sandy, which devastated parts of the U.S. East Coast and threatened Canada, elevated the issue as a government priority. “Climate change is a very real and present danger and we need to address it,” he said, adding the evidence could be found in the increasing num-

ber of floods, droughts and other extreme weather events around the globe. “It has focused the mind absolutely,” Mr. Kent, who is in Doha, Qatar, for the latest round of climate talks, said. The question, of course, is whether the world’s collective brain has been focused enough. Although many leaders and environmental advocates have been sounding the alarm bell for at least 20 years -- the science of human-induced climate change actually dates back to the 19th century -- the ordinary taxpayer seems less panicked. The central problem for those who want radical measures to reduce the carbon footprint, then, is public attitudes. Most polls show people are aware of global warming and they recognize it is a potential problem, but it’s not a high priority for action when contrasted with other issues, such as the economy, jobs, safety, roads, health care and a range

of other issues, depending on where the sampling is taken. There has even been a slackening in the public’s view that climate change is real. According to polling data in the United States, between 1998 and 2006, about 65 per cent of people were sure global warming was occurring, but the trend has since moved down, with fewer citizens convinced it is real. In Doha this week, Christiana Figueres, the head of the UN’s climate change secretariat, said she also didn’t see “much public interest, support, for governments to take on more ambitious and more courageous decisions.” For those who believe Armageddon is near, the tepid response of the ordinary citizen is a major obstacle to implementing tough environmental policies, particularly if it will slow the economy or pick taxpayers’ pockets. Cue the elevator music, at least until the next flood.

PEOPLE

OBITUARIES HENSCHELL, EDWARD GILBERT — was born March 5, 1929, in Trail, B.C. He spent most of his life in Trail, where he met his wife and raised his family. He passed away peacefully at Columbia View Lodge on November 27, surrounded by his loving family. Ed was predeceased by his wife Mavis, his sisters June Bradbury and Frieda McIntyre, and his grandson Kyle Tombaugh. He is survived by his brothers Cliff (Beryl) Reimann and Len Henschell. He was lovingly escorted on his journey by his son Terry (Eileen) Henschell, granddaughters Elizabeth (Tony) Henschell and Teresa (Daniel) Henschell. His special daughter, Pat Henschell, was also by his side to the very end. To his beloved Calgary family, Linda (Wade) Stewart and their children Marilyn (Jamie) Stewart-Johnson and Donald (Jill) Stewart, thank you so much for all of the love and support you gave Uncle Ed when he took ill while visiting in Calgary. Ed is also survived by his daughter Lynne (Gerry) Tombaugh and their two children, Tawnya and Matthew. He leaves behind numerous nieces, nephews, and grandchildren. Ed worked at Cominco for 40 years and was active with the Trail Eagles #2838, as well as the Fruitvale Legion. When he was young, he served with the Merchant Marine (WWII), and later joined both the Trail Artillery Unit and the 44th Field Engineering Squadron. Ed was an avid bowler and curler. In later years he enjoyed golfing, fishing, and wood working. The family would like to thank the Peter Lougheed Centre in Calgary and the Trail Regional Hospital. A warm thank you goes out to the staff of Columbia View Lodge in Trail for the attentive care and wonderful kindness they showed Ed. No funeral will be held at this time, but a celebration of his life will be held at a later date. Donations may be made in Ed’s memory to the Columbia View Lodge.

Royal couple announce pregnancy Kate hospitalized with ‘severe’ morning sickness THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LONDON - The most widely anticipated pregnancy since Princess Diana’s in 1981 is official: Prince William’s wife, Kate, is pregnant. St. James’s Palace announced the pregnancy Monday, saying that the Duchess of Cambridge - formerly known as Kate Middleton - has a severe form of morning sickness and is currently in a London hospital. William is at his wife’s side. News of the pregnancy drew congratulations from across the world, with the hashtag “royalbaby” trending globally on Twitter. The couple’s first child will be third in line to take the throne - leapfrogging the gregarious Prince Harry and possibly setting up the first scenario in which a U.K. female heir could benefit from new gender rules about succession. The palace would not say how far along the 30-yearold duchess is, only that she has not yet reached the 12-week mark. Palace officials said the duchess was hospitalized with hyperemesis gravidarum, a potentially dangerous type of morning sickness where vomiting is so severe no food or liquid can be kept down. They said she was expected to remain hospitalized for several days

Britain’s Prince William leaves the King Edward VII hospital where his wife Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge has been admitted with a severe form of morning sickness, central London, Monday. and would require a period of rest afterward. “The best advice for anyone suffering from (severe morning sickness) is to get plenty of rest and drink lots of fluid,” Dr. Daghni Rajasingam, a spokeswoman for Britain’s Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, said in a statement. “The condition usually subsides by week 12 of the pregnancy and with early diagnosis and treatment, there is no reason why we shouldn’t expect a healthy pregnancy.” The condition is thought to affect about one in 200 pregnant women, according to Britain’s health department.

The news came just days after the duchess, on a royal appearance, played field hockey with children at her former school. Not only are the attractive young couple popular with William’s easy common touch reminding many of his mother, the late Diana - but their child is expected to play an important role in British national life for decades to come. William is second in line to the throne after his father, Prince Charles, so the couple’s first child would normally become a monarch - eventually. The confirmation of Kate’s pregnancy caps a jam-packed year of highs and lows for the young royals, who were mar-

ried in a lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey last year. They have travelled the world extensively as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and weathered the embarrassment of a nude photos scandal, after a tabloid published topless images of the duchess. Joe Little, managing editor of Majesty magazine, said the news bookended a year that saw the royal family riding high in popular esteem after celebrations of the Queen’s 60 years on the throne. “We’re riding on a royal high at the moment at the end of the Diamond Jubilee year,” he said. “People enjoyed the royal romance last year and now there’s this. It’s just a good news story amid all the doom and gloom.” The leaders of Britain and the 15 former colonies that have the monarch as their head of state agreed in 2011 to new rules which give females equal status with males in the order of succession. Although none of the nations had legislated the change as of September, the British Cabinet Office confirmed that this is now the de-facto rule. Those changes make Kate’s pregnancy all the more significant for the royal family, according to Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine. “This is the first child who will be an heir to the throne whatever sex they are,” she said. “It’s a new beginning.”

Family in for a ‘pretty good Christmas’ after lottery win THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DEARBORN, Mo. - Cindy Hill, a laid-off office manager who lives in a small town in Missouri, called her husband Thursday with urgent news that would change everything: “We won the lottery.” “What?” he asked. “We won the lottery,” she repeated. But Mark Hill, a 52-year-old mechanic who works at a meat processing plant, is the kind of person who carefully checks the prices for everything he buys, and he needed proof. This is the “Show-Me State” after all. He drove to his mother’s house, where his wife was waiting with their quick-pick ticket, and confirmed for himself that

the numbers matched those drawn for a record $588 million Powerball jackpot that they’ll share with an unknown winner who bought a ticket in Arizona. Missouri lottery officials officially introduced the Hills as winners Friday in front of reporters and townspeople gathered at the high school in Dearborn, which is about 40 miles north of Kansas City. The announcement was not a surprise. The Hills’ name began circulating Thursday, soon after lottery officials said a winning ticket had been sold at a Trex Mart gas station. The Hills chose to take their winnings in a lump sum, not annual payments. Lottery officials estimated the cash payment at about $385 million, or about

$192.5 million for each ticket. The oversized novelty check handed to the Hills on Friday was written in the amount of $293,750,000, but Missouri Lottery spokeswoman Susan Goedde said that after taxes, they will receive about $136.5 million. “We’re still stunned by what’s happened,” said Cindy Hill, 51, who was laid off in June 2010. The couple have three grown sons and a 6-year-old daughter they adopted from China five years ago. They said they are now considering a second adoption with their winnings, and they plan to help other relatives, including their grandchildren and nieces and nephews, pay for college. They’re planning vacations, and their daughter, Jaiden,

wants a pony. Mark Hill has his eye on a red Camaro. More immediately, they’re preparing for “a pretty good Christmas” and anticipating an onslaught of requests for financial help. “When it’s that big of a Powerball, you’re going to get people coming out of the woodwork, some of them might not be too sane,” Cindy Hill said. “We have to protect our family and grandkids.” The jackpot was the secondlargest in U.S. history and set off a nationwide buying frenzy, with tickets at one point selling at nearly 130,000 per minute. The other winning ticket was sold at 4 Sons Food Store in Fountain Hills near Phoenix. No one has

come forward with it yet, lottery officials said. Before Wednesday’s drawing, the jackpot had rolled over 16 consecutive times without someone hitting the jackpot. Myron Anderson, pastor of the Baptist Church in nearby Camden Point, said he heard Thursday that the Hills had won the huge prize. Anderson said he has known Mark Hill since they attended high school together. “He’s a really nice guy, and I know his wife, and they have this nice little adopted daughter that they went out of their way to adopt,” Anderson said. In a Mega Millions drawing in March, three ticket buyers shared a $656 million jackpot, the largest lottery payout of all time.

SMOKE EATERS

Trail knocks off top seed Sandler notches hat trick in win over Chiefs BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

Led by a threegoal performance from Luke Sandler, a short-handed Trail Smoke Eaters squad salvaged two-points from a three game road trip Sunday as they knocked off the top-ranked team in the BCHL. The Smokies had one of their best performances of the season beating the Chilliwack Chiefs 6-3 on Sunday, however it was hot on the heels of a tough 7-1 loss to Coquitlam Saturday, and a 4-3 decision to Powell River Friday night. Still, the bounceback game after a long two-days of travel is a credit to the team’s work ethic, as they seem to play their most determined hockey against the league’s best. The Smokies beat the Chiefs 5-4 in their previous meeting at the Cominco Arena a month ago. The league-leading Chiefs (19-6-1-1) are the top-rated BCHL team in the Canadian junior rankings at number eleven, while the Penticton Vees, 14th, and Victoria Grizzlies, 15th, are the only other BCHL teams in the top 20. Sandler scored what proved to be the winning goal 1:20 into the third when he intercepted a pass at his own blue line and walked in all alone on the Chiefs Josh Halpenny, to give the Smokies a 4-2 lead. The Smoke Eaters dampened the enthusiasm of the over 1,800 fans at Prospera Centre with an improbable second period comeback. Trail stormed back from a 2-0 first-periond deficit, scoring three times on 19 shots in the second period to

take a lead they would not relinquish. Adam Wheeldon converted a Sandler pass from behind the net to put the Smokies on the board 2:24 into the second. Then Baltus deflected in his first of two, less than a minute later on the power play, before Sandler gave the Smokies a onegoal lead by banging in a rebound off a Jake Lucchini shot at 8:07 of the second period. Baltus moved into second place in BCHL scoring, with his 19th and 20th goals of the season to move within four points of leader Luke Esposito from the Chiefs. Baltus has 20 goals and 15 assists in 31 games so far. After Sandler netted his second of the night to open the third period, Baltus ripped his second marker past Halpenny, before Sandler rounded out the Smokies scoring with his hat trick goal, and fourth point of the game to give Trail a 6-2 lead. The Chiefs Garrett Forster would net a late one on Trail starter Lyndon Stanwood to make it 6-3. Stanwood stopped 33 of 36 shots while Trail fired 42 at Halpenny. Trail was also without goalie Adam Todd, defencemen Shane Poulsen, Braden Jones, and forwards Bryce Knapp, Ryan Edwards, Jesse Knowler, and captain Garrett McMullen. The team picked up goalie Cody Boekman and forward Colton McCarthy from the Nelson Leafs, as well as Chandler Bruyckere from the Vancouver Island Junior League and Matt Carr from the KIJHL Fernie Ghostriders as reinforcements. Trail now head to Vernon Thursday for a tilt against the Vipers, and return to the Cominco Arena to host Langley Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks Dallas Calvin celebrates this third period winning goal over the Revelstoke Grizzlies Sunday afternoon to cap off three road wins over the weekend that included a 6-4 victory over the Grizzlies.

Nitehawks hold hot hand on weekend

BY TIMES STAFF The Beaver Valley Nitehawks packed their brooms as they swept a three-game road swing through the Birks Division of the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference on the weekend. Hawks goalie Zach Perehudoff stopped 39 of 41 shots and Kurt Black scored the 3-2 winner in double overtime to start the road trip off on a positive note against the Kamloops Storm Friday. The Hawks then went on to double up Chase Heat 4-2 Saturday, before skating to an exciting 6-4 come-from-behind win over Revelstoke Grizzlies Sunday. After losing six of eight games, a confident Nitehawks team has reeled off five wins in a row. Dallas Calvin had a big game against

the Grizzlies scoring twice, including the game winning goal, as the smoothskating forward made it 5-4 with 1:40 left in regulation after Revelstoke player Spencer Samuel was sent off for interference. The Nitehawks jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Dallas Calvin and Taylor Stafford, but the Grizz replied tying the game on a pair of markers from Tyler Reay at the end of the first period. Black gave the Hawks a 3-2 lead when he converted a Stafford set up on the power play with a minute remaining in the second, but the Grizz tied it early in the third, then took a 4-3 lead on a goal from Andrew Standish at 17:18. However, the Hawks would mount a comeback. Dan Holland marked his

first as a Hawk, converting a pass from Calvin, to tie the game at 16:55 of the third, and it stayed that way until Calvin’s second goal put the Hawks ahead for good. Russell Mortlock added the insurance marker on another PP with just under a minute remaining. Perehudoff was steady again for the Hawks stopping 33 of 37 shots while the offence for Beaver Valley was more efficient scoring six times on 27 shots against Revelstoke goalie Conrad McMillan. The Nitehawks play the Fernie Ghostriders in a home-and-home series starting at the Beaver Valley Arena on Friday at 7:30 p.m. before heading to Fernie Saturday.

BCIHL

Saints equal winning record

BY TIMES STAFF Selkirk College closed out its 2012 schedule on Saturday night with a bang, tying the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League record for the longest regular season win streak at 12 games by defeating the University of Victoria Vikings by a 6-1 score at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. The Saints’ offence came alive in the second period after Beau Taylor and Mark Prest had traded goals in a tight opening 20 minutes.

Nick Cecconi started the rally, putting Selkirk ahead 2:16 into the frame when he banged home a loose puck from the side of the crease off a Matt Luongo feed. Connor McLaughlin tipped home a Justin Sotkowy point shot on the power-play midway through the period to extend the lead to two, and former Smoke Eater Logan Proulx added another just 1:23 later off a nice set-up from linemate Jackson Garrett. Thomas Hardy, in his first game back from injury,

and Mason Spear capped the scoring in the third period. “We came out of the gates a little slow tonight but the guys found their legs in the second period and really dictated the speed and tempo of the game from there,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “It was good to close out the first half of our schedule with a complete team effort -- we got goals from all four of our forward lines and solid performances on the blueline and in goal.” With the win, the Saints

tied the BCIHL record for the longest regular season winning streak originally set by UVic during the 2007-08 season. They’ll have to wait for the opportunity to set a new record, though, as the team now breaks for college exams and holidays before returning to the ice on Jan. 12 against Simon Fraser University. “As a group, coming into the season we knew we had all the ingredients to be a contending team,” says Dubois.

Despite outshooting Norway 9-3 in the first period, Canada trailed 1-0 as a result of a power-play goal by Bakke at 6:06 of the opening frame. Hamar kept the game close in the first period by turning aside quality shots by Rempel, Tyler McGregor and Dominic Larocque. Coached by Trail resident Mike Mondin, the Canadians continued to pour on the pressure in the second period and were finally rewarded at 5:17 when a pass by Westlake from the corner bounced off of Rempel and into the net behind Hamar. Bridges then one-timed a pass from Dorion past Hamar before Westlake tapped a cross-crease feed from Brad Bowden into a wide-open net. Rempel rounded out the scoring at 6:31 of the third period when he converted a feed from Bridges.

THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - Kevin Rempel of Vineland, Ont., scored twice to lead Team Canada to a 4-1 win over Norway on Monday at the World Sledge Hockey Challenge. Greg Westlake of Oakville, Ont., and Billy Bridges of Summerside, P.E.I., had a goal and an assist each for Canada, which improved to 2-0 at the four-team tournament. Goalie Corbin Watson of Kingsville, Ont., stopped eight of nine shots he faced to record the victory. Audun Bakke scored the lone goal of the game for Norway (0-2), which also lost 3-1 to the United States one day earlier at the Markin MacPhail Centre. Canada had scorched Japan 11-0 in its opening match Sunday. Kjell Christian Hamar made 22 saves in the Norway net.

team, which is selected by votes from fans, journalists and CFL head coaches. Cornish, from New Westminster, B.C., had a breakout season in 2012, winning the league’s outstanding Canadian award and finishing runnerup behind Toronto receiver Chad Owens as outstanding player. He ran for 1,457 yards, breaking the 56-yearold record for rushing yards by a Canadian set by Normie Kwong. Harris, from Winnipeg, ran for 1,112 yards. It was the first time since 1956 that two Canadian running backs broke the 1,000-yard plateau. Montreal quarter-

back Anthony Calvillo was named to his fifth all-star team, while Owens joined fellow receivers Weston Dressler of Saskatchewan, Nik Lewis of Calgary and Fred Stamps of Edmonton. Montreal guard Scott Flory earned his eighth all-star selection, and teammate Josh Bourke, earlier named the league’s top lineman, earned his second selection. Edmonton linebacker J.C. Sherritt, the league’s top defensive player, and Hamilton returner Chris Williams, the top special-teams player, were also named all-stars.

THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - Forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has been named to the Canadian junior hockey team’s selection camp roster, Hockey Canada announced Monday. Nugent-Hopkins, the first overall pick in the 2011 NHL entry draft, played for the Edmonton Oilers last season. The 19-year-old centre has played for the American Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Barons during the NHL lockout this season. Nugent-Hopkins was among 37 players were invited to selection camp Dec. 10-15 in Calgary. Nugent-Hopkins was in Edmonton on Monday having his shoulder examined, but he is expected to join the Canadian team. “It is contingent on his health. At this point I think (the examination) is precautionary,” said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canada’s senior director of operations. “He played on the weekend and flew in so I think it was always in the plans. Our thoughts is he’ll be here on the 10th of December ready to roll.” The NHL lockout means Canada can choose the best from players born in 1994 or earlier. A handful are usually unavailable to the team because they’re playing in the NHL. Head coach Steve Spott and his assistants will select 23 players, including a third goaltender, to represent Canada. The 2013 world junior hockey champion opens Dec. 26 in Ufa, Russia. The selection camp roster includes 18 players from the Ontario Hockey League, 11 from the Western Hockey League, seven from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and Nugent-Hopkins from the AHL. Four goalies, a dozen defencemen and 21 forwards will try out for the team. While the world junior championships are considered tournament for 19-year-olds, the selection camp will include 17-year-old forwards Nathan McKinnon and Jonathan Drouin of the Halifax Mooseheads. The Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings and New York Islanders have the most prospects in the camp with three draft picks apiece.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Television viewers were once called couch potatoes. Many are becoming more active while watching now, judging by the findings in a new report that illustrates the explosive growth in people who watch TV while connected to social media on smartphones and tablets. The Nielsen company said that one in three people using Twitter in June sent messages at some point about the content of television shows, an increase of 27 per cent from only five months earlier. And that was before the Olympics, which was probably the first big event to illustrate the extent of second screen usage. “Twitter has become the second screen experience for television,” said Deirdre Bannon, vice-president of social media at Nielsen. Social networking is becoming so pervasive that the study found nearly a third of people aged 18-to-24 reported using the sites while in the bathroom. An estimated 41 per cent of tablet owners and 38 per cent of smartphone owners used their device while also watching television at least once a day, Nielsen said. That percentage hasn’t changed much; in fact, 40 per cent of smartphone owners reported daily dual screen usage a year earlier, Nielsen said. The difference is that far more people own these devices and they are using them for a longer period of time. The company estimated that Americans spent a total of 157.5 billion minutes on mobile devices in July 2012, nearly doubling the 81.8 billion the same month a year earlier. The social media can provide networks with real-time feedback on what they are doing. The performance of moderators at presidential debates this fall was watched more closely than perhaps ever before, because people were instantly taking on Twitter to provide their own critiques. The increase in people watching television and commenting about it online would seem to run counter to another big trend this fall: more people recording programs and watching them at a later hour. Those contrary trends both increase the value of live event programming like awards shows or sporting events.

Children must call father’s bluff about new boyfriend Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

One of my sons actually confronted my ex about this before, and my ex didn’t speak to him for months. He told our son that he was taking my side by accepting my boyfriend. I live with my boyfriend, and my ex has a live-in girlfriend whom he plans to bring to the birthday party. I am heartbroken that my ex is treating his children this way and even more upset that my kids won’t stand up for themselves or for me. I fear this will never end. What happens when our stillsingle son gets married? My boyfriend has

up 10 months ago. We are still close friends and have some feelings for each other, but there are reasons why we can’t currently be together. I am starting to like a guy who is three years younger and two grades below me. But I don’t know if he likes me. Should I pursue him? What about my ex-boyfriend who is still my best friend? -- Conflicted and Confused in the Northwest Dear Conflicted: Are you planning to get back together with your ex at some point in the near future? If so, pursuing another guy may make that more difficult. But if the relationship with the ex is over, you are free to pursue anyone. However, the new guy is 15. While he may be flattered by your interest, he’s too young to become involved with a senior. And if there is sex, you could be in legal trouble. Please

set your sights elsewhere. Dear Annie: I think you missed an important possibility when answering “Frustrated Dad,” whose collegegraduate son plays video games all day. If his son plays

games the vast majority of the day, he could well be addicted. When addictions take over, work and relationships are all tossed by the wayside. He retreats from the real world because his reality is in his computer.

Dad should absolutely insist that he go to a therapist trained in addictions. Drive him there, or pay for his gas -- whatever it takes. It is a long, hard road back, but it can be done. -- Happier Mom A n n i e ’ s

no problem stepping aside, but I know his feelings are hurt. I don’t want this type of behavior to cause a rift with my kids. This is making me physically ill. Should I not go to the party? I don’t want to play into my ex’s control issues. -Heartbroken Mom in Connecticut Dear Connecticut: Your children must call Dad’s bluff, or he will continue to marginalize you and any partner you have. This is a power play to control all of you. Unfortunately, you cannot force your children to risk the relationship by showing backbone. Whether or not to attend these functions is up to you.

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

Dear Annie: Two years ago, I walked away from a 28-year marriage. A year after my divorce was final, I began seeing an old family friend. My exhusband has decided that the only possible reason for why I left him is another man, because in his humble opinion, he was perfect during our marriage. I have told him over and over the reasons why I left, but he doesn’t hear a word I say. The problem is, we share grandchildren. My grandson is having a birthday soon, and my ex has given our daughter explicit orders that I am not to bring my new boyfriend. The birthday party is being held at my daughter’s house, and she called and asked me to come alone so as not to cause any problems. My daughter understands that her father is being unreasonable, but he is their father, and they love him.
