Little impact expected from penny’s demise Change won’t affect card purchases BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

For Howard Kuenle, owner of Got Juiced in downtown Trail, the penny will always hold a special place in his heart. After being a valued member of the Canadian economy for 155 years, the one-cent piece will officially retire next week. “I will always save a penny,” he said. “Especially because I married one,” he joked and nodded to wife and co-owner Penny Kuenle. On Feb. 4, the Royal Canadian Mint will no longer distribute the copper coin. In the 2012 economic action plan, the government announced it would phase out the penny to save taxpayer’s $11 million a year. Elsewhere downtown, L’Bears Health Foods is uncertain if the discontinued currency will have any effect on business just yet. “We haven’t talked about it much, but we’ll see how it affects us at the end of the day when cashing out,” said Amber Tadevic, employee of L’Bears. “I was at my bank the other day and they hadn’t even heard anything about it yet,” she added. The same can’t be said for the Trail branch of TD Canada Trust, as the bank has displayed posters explaining the demise of the penny to its customers for a few months now. And for now, a penny saved will still be a penny earned, at least in the foreseeable future. “Pennies will always be in currency,” said Joanne McQuarry, manager at the TD bank. “We will always accept pennies,” she said. “In fact, we still see the old ones and twos (dollar bills).” Unfortunately, doing away with the penny will not fuel any change for the price of gas, and motorists will continue seeing prices to the nearest one hundredth. “No longer having a penny won’t affect the price of fuel,” said Brian O’Hearn, vice-president of the western division of the Canadian Fuel Association. “At the till for cash transactions, we will round up or down.” As pennies exit circulation, only cash payments or transactions will be affected. The Government of Canada has adopted a rounding guideline that has been used successfully by other countries for its cash transactions with the public.  Cash purchases will be rounded either up or down, to the nearest five-cent increment. Credit and debit cards, cheques and electronic transactions will continue to be settled to the cent.

Crowds come out for carnival BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

The 116th Rossland Winter Carnival received a warm reception from both Mother Nature, and a record number of local and visiting spectators. The annual event began during the wee hours of Friday morning when a large crowd gathered to have its smile broadcasted to the rest of Canada. Jeff Hutcheson, co-host of Canada AM, shot live footage from the corner of Queen and Columbia in downtown Rossland from 3 a.m. until 6 a.m. “We budgeted for 400 people to be there during the entire three hour time span,” said Deanne Steven, executive director for Tourism Rossland. “Over 600 people showed up in the first hour and a half.” The entire CTV crew was surprised

that such a small town could embrace such a crazy idea and turn out a big crowd during the early hours, said Steven. On Friday night, old traditions continued with a parade down Columbia Ave., followed by hot cocoa and a bonfire in Harry Lefevre square. “I’ve never seen so many people come out,” said Steven. “More locals and more tourists.” Post-parade, the Spirit of Red Society warmed the crowd with its official unveiling of the new Olaus Jeldness statue on the corner of Washington and Columbia. Jeldness was a Norwegian miner who pioneered the carnival in 1897. The numbers were also high for the annual Sonny Samuelson bobsled race which drew a record 28 entries.

Meanwhile, hundreds of spectators lined the Spokane Street track to cheer teams of those brave enough to ride a homemade sled from the top of Rossland to the bottom. The rise in mercury played a negative role in the speed down the track, explained Kelly Acheson, coordinator of the race. “Admittedly, it wasn’t the fastest year. It got too warm on Friday, and we worried that the track would be too slow. “The city was out there at 5 a.m. spraying and icing the course so it wouldn’t melt away.” The Iron Maiden sled from Rossland topped the field with a speed of 72 km per hour, and a combined time of 79.69 seconds over two runs.

Silver Streak, an American entry from Colville, placed third at 84.93 seconds. The warm weather not only played havoc on the race track but spectators as well. “Some snow on the arena slid off the roof onto some people during the race,” said Acheson. Although the unexpected snow slide did not alter the course of the race or result in injury, she continued to look into the situation on Monday. “Every year the carnival committee looks at the safety of the track and builds snow burms to keep pedestrians as safe as possible,” said Darrin Albo, manager of operations for the City of Rossland. “In the future, that section will need to be closed off to all pedestrians even if there is little or any accumulation of snow on the roof.” The Rail Jam on Queen Street hosted over 70 participants and went off without a hitch, said

By Times Staff Sometimes the road less travelled isn’t a good idea. On Saturday a 21-year-old Castlegar man who was out snowmobiling in the Norns Road area near Pass Creek took a different trail than other members of his party—and spent a night out in the wilderness.

The man was first noticed as missing when he was three hours late and did not show up at the designated meeting point. Castlegar RCMP received a call from the party and quickly brought in Castlegar Search and Rescue to help locate the over due snowmobiler. Search and Rescue members

Nelson has landed on the front page of a national newspaper, but this time it’s not the glowing words locals have come to expect. Friday’s National Post featured a story headlined “Going gets ruff for B.C. town’s dog ban: Move to save downtown drives tourists away.” Written by freelance journalist Elizabeth Hames, the article is not being well received by the community. “I was certainly disappointed in the tone of the article,” said Nelson city councillor Deb Kozak. “I thought it was unfair in the way it spoke about the people of Nelson and how this community accepts people. The article was simply wrong… that’s not my experience and not the experience of the people who live here.” The basis of the article is the downtown dog bylaw. Coming in at more than 1,300 words, the story interviews several business owners and business leaders. The story opens by calling Nelson Canada’s pot capital. It goes onto examine the history and current situation with the downtown dog ban. “It is perhaps a law unfitting a city that free-love flower children and organic cannabis helped build,” Hames writes. The reporter hits on all the expected references to Nelson — hippies, Roxanne, mountain geography, mining roots — but the intent is not to paint the community as idyllic. “The dog ban was part of a sweeping series of bylaws targeting the young nomads,” Hames writes. “Within a span of a few years, hacky sack, skateboarding, rollerblading, and unauthorized music were all outlawed on Baker Street, Nelson’s historic main strip. Nothing worked. The transients kept coming — now without their pets. Even in the coldest winter months, you can still find a half-dozen youths wearing black were joined by several other snowmobilers and an avalanche tech in the search for the missing man. The searchers located sled tracks leading off on a different trail, but not the returning tracks, said Sgt. Laurel Mathew of the Castlegar RCMP. “Due to steep hills and several large ravines the search was called

trenches and dragging frayed duffel bags as they congregate under the awning of Sonia’s China Cabinet, a gift shop that never seems to open. In a few months, the huddle will morph into an army when 10,000 music fans file in for the yearly Shambhala Music Festival in nearby Salmo.” Kozak said the article takes the easy way out. “As far as I know, nobody on council or with the city was contacted at all,” said Kozak. “That really disappointed me, I expect better from journalists. I expect journalists to get all sides of the story and I felt that was lacking in this article for sure.” Hames said she did speak with city manager Kevin Cormack and attempted to sit down with Mayor John Dooley during the four days she spent in Nelson earlier this month. The reporter said Dooley failed to show up for the interview. The Vancouver-based Hames told the Star via email that once she started digging a little deeper, her article went beyond dogs. “Although my story did focus on a contentious issue, I was left with a very positive impression of Nelson overall,” she said in the email. “Everyone I spoke with was welcoming and friendly, and the scenery is unbeatable even on a foggy day. However, because I spent a lot of time on Baker Street, I found it difficult to ignore one of the city’s most pressing problems: homelessness.” Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce manager Tom Thomson spent more than a half hour with Hames. He is quoted once in the print edition and once more in the online version of the story. Thomson was not thrilled to see the final result. “My feeling was it that was really sensationalist, it was full of half truths and conjecture,” said Thomson. “I believe she came to Nelson with an agenda to write a story on more than something than just a bylaw.”

Around 10:30 a.m. on Monday the man was located, safe and unharmed, she added “He had gotten into an area that he could not get out of,” Sgt. Mathew said. “He is an experienced sledder and he had a shovel and beacon with him.”

Premier, Coleman reject casino criticism BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

VANCOUVER – Premier Christy Clark has rejected criticism of her government’s handling of a casino resort proposal in South Surrey. Speaking to reporters at a mineral exploration conference Monday, Clark brushed aside questions about cabinet minister Rich Coleman telling Surrey councillors they won’t see another casino proposal after voting down the B.C. Lottery Corporation’s proposed Gateway Casinos project. “He’s the minister responsible,” Clark said. “He got some questions and he answered the questions. I think it was as simple as that. It’s a Crown corporation.” In an interview, Coleman said there were heated words exchanged after a long public meeting and Surrey council’s split vote against the proposal. But he has no regrets for his role. Coleman said Surrey council initiated the project by rezoning land three years ago and asking

BCLC to develop a plan to transfer a gaming centre licence from the Newton area to South Surrey. “Then [Surrey] told us this is the only one they’re doing, so go there,” Coleman said. “Then the proponent went and spent a lot of money designing it, went through all the questions, added a convention centre, restaurants and all that stuff. “And then the hearing wasn’t actually a [land use] public hearing, so there was no legal process around it.” Surrey Mayor Diane Watts objected to comments from Coleman and BCLC president Michael Graydon after Watts cast the deciding vote last week to reject the project. While the public meeting was continuing, Coleman told two councillors they won’t have another casino proposal if they reject that one. Coleman said he doesn’t expect the project to move to the Township of Langley, because Langley City already has a casino and there probably isn’t sufficient market demand for a second one. The South Surrey location was advantageous because it was closer to Washington state casinos. The four councillors who supported the Gateway plan argued that of $200 million Surrey residents spend in casinos, $160 million goes south of the border.

Clark touts growth in mining BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

VANCOUVER – Premier Christy Clark welcomed delegates to an international mining exploration conference Monday with a prediction of record investment in the B.C. industry this year. “Last year, as you know, was a record-breaking year for mining exploration, $462 million,” Clark said in a speech that previews the coming election campaign. “Compare that to the 1990s, when $26 million a year in exploration was underway. We’ve come a long way in 12 years, and it’s pretty tough to beat those record-breaking years.” She predicted that mark will be shattered with another 47 per cent increase, mostly due to a few large projects underway now. While exploration is up, five mining expansions are permitted to proceed in the province. They are: Endako Mines’ molybdenum mine at Fraser Lake in Central B.C.; Teck’s Highland Valley copper mine at Logan Lake in the Okanagan; Huckleberry Mine, an open-pit

copper and molybdenum mine near Dease Lake in northwestern B.C.; Quinsam Coal, an underground thermal coal mine on Vancouver Island; and Elkview, a Teck metallurgical coal mine near Sparwood in the Kootenays. Conference delegates applauded another recent development, the first mineral royalty sharing agreements with aboriginal people for Huckleberry Mine and New Afton, an expansion of a Kamloops-area copper mine. Clark also touted an improvement in permit approval times for land and water use as well as “notice of work” permits. The waiting time has been reduced from 110 days to 80 days, and another $7 million will be spent to get it down to 60 days, she said. NDP mining critic Doug Donaldson said the B.C. Liberal government is still working to fix a problem it created, when mining permit time went from 55 days in 2007 to 110 days by 2011. The 60-day target for notice-of-work permits was supposed to be met in November, Donaldson added.

Rich keep getting richer but not as fast


People make their way to the Centre Block of Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Monday as the House of Commons resumes following a six week break.

Commons returns after Christmas break

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The economy and law-and-order issues will be front and centre for the Conservative government as the House of Commons returns from its Christmas break. “It’s important we continue to focus on the economy,” Conservative House Leader Peter Van Loan said Monday, just hours before the House resumed business after six weeks of down time. Van Loan said the spring budget will be a cornerstone of the government’s agenda, with wide consultations across the country. Other bills will make it easier to deport foreign criminals, improve RCMP accountability and toughen the rules for violent offenders found not

responsible for crimes because of mental defects. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government is just short of the half-way point in its four-year mandate, facing challenges in a faltering housing sector in most parts of the country, flat commodity prices, continuing European economic woes and urgent First Nations demands for a greater share of resource money. New Democrat MP Romeo Saganash described the demonstrations as evidence of mounting aboriginal frustration in Canada. “They are tired of the current status quo, which leaves them in difficult living conditions below the standard we expect in a rich country like ours.”

This session could see a freetrade deal reached with the European Union, although it may spark anger from the provinces if it results in higher costs for prescription drugs. The Conservatives will also face heat over replacing the Parliamentary Budget Officer. Kevin Page’s five-year term is about to conclude, but the government appears to be in no hurry to appoint a successor to a man who became a thorn in their side. The ongoing robocalls investigation by Canada’s elections watchdog could also cause trouble for the government. By the middle of April, the third-party Liberals will have a new leader - Justin Trudeau remains a favourite - and a new voice against the government.

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The recession and subsequent weak recovery appears to have taken a bite out of Canada’s top income earners but they are still doing better than the rest and many suspect the setback is temporary. Statistics Canada reported Monday that the top one per cent of the country’s 25.5 million tax filers earned at least $201,400 in 2010, accounting for 10.6 per cent of the nation’s total income - down from 12.1 per cent peak in 2006. The latest data finds the biggest narrowing in the gap between to top one per cent and the rest occurred in 2008 and 2009, when the Canadian economy was in the midst of a deep recession and the stock market lost about half its value. By 2010, however, the recession-effect on income disparity appeared to be diminishing. There was only a slight drop-off for the top earners - from 10.7 per cent to 10.6 per cent of the national income - between 2009 and 2010. Andrew Sharpe, executive director of Centre for the Study of Living Standards, says he doubts the new data indicate a trend to greater income equal-

ity because top earnings are more dependent on investments and capital gains. “It’s likely a cyclical phenomenon,” Sharpe said. “There’s a lot of forces in society that leads to the concentration of income. It’s hard to say what’s going to happen, but I wouldn’t say it will continue to fall for the top one per cent.” In 2010, the richest one per cent reported a median income of $283,400, or about 10 times greater than the $28,400 median for the other 99 per cent. By comparison, in 1982, the median income for the top one per cent was $191,600, or only seven times the $28,000 median for the rest. The report also found: - More women among the rich. There were 53,200 Canadian women in the one per cent club, or 21 per cent of the total, compared to only 11 per cent in 1982. - The median age of the top one per cent of tax filers was 51 in

2010, a number that has changed little over the past 30 years. The median age for all tax filers increased to 47 from 36. - The top one per cent paid 21.2 per cent of federal, provincial or territorial income taxes collected, up form 13.4 per cent in 1982. The share paid by the rest fell to 78.8 per cent in 2010 from 86.6 per cent in 1982. Statistics Canada research shows that the vast majority of top earners come from Canada’s most populous provinces - Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia - and most live in the biggest cities - Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. And that is also where income inequality tends to be greatest, according to the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternative. In its analysis of the data, the group says Calgary is by far Canada’s most unequal city with the top one per cent earning 26 times as much as the bottom 10 per cent.

Another round of ‘school wars’ begins


ike a bad reality show about a dysfunctional family, B.C. School Wars has lurched to life again for the 2013 election. Coming soon to billboards and buses across the province: staged pictures of sad-faced kids crammed into dirty classrooms by a heartless government.  It doesn’t even matter which government. This ritual combat went on through Social Credit and NDP governments too. Premier Christy Clark opened the new season with her promised pitch to restructure bargaining. It suggested splitting up bargaining into traditional wage and benefit talks, and a separate table and fund for classroom size and support. Cast in her familiar role of the sullen, rebellious teenager, BCTF president Susan Lambert staged a news conference to distort and mock the government’s offer.

A 10-year deal if we give up bargaining wages and classroom conditions? “Ludicrous.” What’s ludicrous is her characterization of a formula to link teacher pay to nurses, post-secondary faculty and other government workers. Nurses are renowned for getting raises when no one else does, so this should be an opportunity for these powerful unions to  coordinate. But the BCTF can’t get along with other unions any more than it can negotiate with any discernible competence.  Lambert falsely claimed there was no consultation on the proposal. This reminded me how she low-balled the costs of her union’s demands by hundreds of millions during what passed for negotiations in last year’s strike season.  Behind the scenes, the BCTF executive and the school district bargaining agent had just settled on



a mutual costing model. What this means is the school districts, which have to make payroll and balance budgets, have convinced the BCTF to stop misrepresenting costs. I’ll believe that when I see it. Before Education Minister Don McRae had even spoken, BCTF vicepresident Glen Hansman was growling his reply on Twitter: See you in court. That message presumably also goes for premierin-waiting Adrian Dix, unless he replaces the hated B.C. Liberals in May, then quickly kneels before

the BCTF and extends the key to the provincial treasury. Two generations of British Columbians have been bullied by this bad drama, since Bill Vander Zalm decided an industrial union bargaining structure was just the ticket for public schools. Students are taught by example, if not by blatant propaganda in classrooms, that all problems are solved by demanding more money from the government. After this conditioning, older students are sometimes pressed into service as union pickets. There’s your Social Justice class, kids. Sorry about those sports teams and field trips, but we need those as bargaining chips to get more paid leave time. To state the obvious, Clark and McRae staged this as a pre-election event to frame the issue. They knew their effort would be greeted as a declaration

of war. The main reason the BCTF agreed to a contract extension with a wage freeze last year? It wasn’t the blindingly obvious fact that every other public sector union had already taken two zeroes. It was strictly tactics. The delay sets up the latest rematch of these old warriors in the spring election. The plan is to get the dreaded B.C. Liberals out and then start working over the weaker, more union-dependent NDP. That’s who caved in earlier and gave the BCTF broad control over staffing levels, the proverbial key to the treasury. Along with basic math and economics, a  point the BCTF seems unable to grasp is that its strategy is self-defeating. Those sad kids are making more and more parents seek a better deal.  Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press

transportation is strained. But there is another problem at the community level – cities and towns are hollowing out in other parts of the country as workers leave those regions. If the exodus becomes a stampede, entire towns and regions can fall quickly into economic chaos. This poses real problems for provincial and federal governments when the citizens left behind expect solutions to their economic decline. Sometimes there are just no solutions to offer. The third reason why a more uniform growth rate across the country is beneficial relates to the federal government’s Equalization Program. People are split in their opinion of this system of wealth redistribution; but if you love it or hate it, a more uniform growth rate is good news. If you are not in favour of the program, the better economic results in Central and Atlantic Canada and the moderating growth in Western Canada will automatically reduce the cash transfers from Ottawa to the have not regions. And if you support the program, the narrowing gap in growth rates will temper the criticism and attack that equalization often sustains. The smaller gap could even suggest the program is working as it was intended to. Fortunately, the narrowing gap in economic growth rates is being driven by positive factors. Somewhat slower growth in the West is actually a benefit in the long run – faster is not always better. And improved prospects for Central and Atlantic Canada is unequivocally good news. The more uniform economic growth rates are across the country, the easier it will be for all regions to get along. Troy Media Business Columnist Todd Hirsch is Senior Economist with ATB Financial.

An editorial from the Halifax Chronicle-Herald: We are often confused by the complexities of politics in foreign lands, which either have a different democratic DNA or an alien cultural background. But Canadians have had trouble making sense of the goings-on in their own country since Idle No More grabbed headlines. Activists have certainly raised the profile of native issues - an inherently good thing - but their incoherence is often counter-productive. The focal person of the movement has been Chief Theresa Spence who demonstrated an abysmal sense of political timing by waiting until Thursday to end her fast. Two weeks ago, she snubbed the very prime minister she was trying to bring to the table, on the dubious grounds that he would not include the Governor General in the proceedings.

ward, tension between bands that have economic prospects because of their proximity to population centres and other isolated reserves that have lost their raison d’etre - all of which could lead to the political implosion of the umbrella group that officially represents them all. It now falls to Shawn Atleo, the head of the Assembly of First Nations, who has just returned from stress leave, to defuse these incipient crises by making tangible progress on everything from water quality and housing to resource-sharing and treaty implementation. “We have a common enemy, and it’s the status quo,” he declared. What he didn’t say is that chaos will be the common enemy unless the AFN maintains some cohesion, Ottawa re-engages the AFN, and both embrace fundamental changes to native governance.


Idling no option for a viable future For Ms. Spence and her followers to insist on a role for the Queen’s representative, who has no bearing on government policy, is a useless distraction. It betrays an agenda that values symbolism and nostalgia - cheap and easy propaganda - over the slogging that is required for real progress. If Canadians have lost the plot in the drama surrounding Ms. Spence, her detractors and preference of interlocutors - the question no longer being what does Quebec want, but what do natives want? Against the backdrop of frustration with the Harper government’s environmental and economic policies - not to mention its steamroller style - one can see the beginnings of a social explosion among aboriginals, a tug of war between radicals who ramp up anti-colonial rhetoric and pragmatists who are seeking a realistic path for-

OBITUARIES HALIFAX, ROWAT WILFRED (MAC) — It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved father, papa and great papa, Rowat (better known as Mac) Wilfred Halifax, 84, of Fruitvale, BC, who passed away peacefully at home with family by his side on Tuesday, January 22, 2013 after a courageous battle with skin cancer. Mac, eldest son of Frank and Gwen Halifax, was born on October 14, 1928 in Trail, BC.  At age 10, the family moved to Fruitvale, where he grew up in the cement block house built by his father and grandfather. In 1947 while watching the girls’ baseball game between Fruitvale and Salmo, he saw and fell in love with Joan Kraft from Salmo. They were married September 13, 1952 in Fruitvale and moved into the second cement block home that he built with his father. He and mom were blessed with four children, nine grandchildren and nine great grandchildren (soon to be ten in March and eleven in July). He was a gentle, patient and loving husband, father and grandfather who deeply cherished and provided for his family. Dad spent over 40 years working “up the hill” at Cominco, starting as a 15year old summer student on the labour gang. After high school graduation he took his place at his bench in the Plumbing Shop where he worked as a pipe bender/fitter. Dad took great pride in his work and it showed as we’ve been told by many of his co-workers that “no one could bend a pipe like Hali”. In October 1985 he retired from Cominco and never looked back. He and mom enjoyed their retirement travelling, camping, and fishing, gardening and spending time with the family. After many years fishing for “the big one”, in the fall of 1990 Dad was finally rewarded with the catch of his life while fishing alone in a little tin boat on Kootenay Lake near Lardeau, BC. “Walter” put up a good fight, but that day he was no match for Dad and after about 40 minutes he landed that 27 pound rainbow trout with one hand on the fishing rod and the other juggling between the motor, the reel and the net! Dad was so excited with his catch he drove the boat straight back to the campsite, practically ran up the bank, all the while yelling for Mom to “pack up the trailer we’re heading home!” He was so proud of that fish. Dad was a smart, inventive, kind, caring, honest, gentle and quiet man with a great sense of humor. At 15 he taught himself how to play the alto saxophone and played in a band at various dances in town. He coached and umpired little league baseball; helped build the curling rink in Fruitvale and was a member of the Curling Club for a

number of years which was highlighted when he skipped two 8-ender games! He enjoyed challenging his brain with word and jigsaw puzzles and then video games which were introduced to him by his grandchildren. During his retirement he taught himself how to paint landscapes by watching Bob Ross on PBS. He has always embraced technology and kept in touch with family and friends by way of his computer. In his later retirement years he took up cooking, baking, canning and house cleaning. He took great pride in his yard, flower and vegetable gardens, his fish pond and his bird feeders. Mac was preceded in death five weeks ago by his loving wife of 60 years Joan; parents Frank & Gwen, sister Eileen, brother Ken and grandson Ryan Halifax. Mac is survived by his children: Gary (Lee-Anne), Randy (Sherry), Gail (Bob) Mayne, & Karen (Scott Simpson); grandchildren/great grandchildren: Sean (Kristy), Brooke, Riley, Britney; Aaron (Deana), Austin, Mackenzie; Jason (Laura); Michael (Karin); Gwendolyn Mayne; Shane (Tiffany), Keagan, Mason, Scarlett; Kara Mayne (Justin Weiers), and Tyler and Joanna Simpson; Step Grandchildren/great grandchildren: Kelly (Brad), Cole, Isabella, Finn Stykel and Marlise (Mark), Mattea, Delano Livolsi; sisters Norma McCarthy, Freeda Little; brothers Ron and Jed Halifax, as well as numerous nephews, nieces and cousins. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to  the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation at or the BC Cancer Foundation at As per Dad’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. A Celebration of Life will be held for both mom and dad in the spring. Cremation has taken place. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at The family wishes to thank Dr. Behrens for Dad’s care over the years as well as Dr. McCoid for her care in Dr. Behrens absence. Your compassion for Dad was appreciated. GOD SAW YOU GETTING TIRED God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me” With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away, and although we love you dearly we could not make you stay. A Golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.


Incoming Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne speaks at a news conference in Toronto, Sunday.


Leader selection an ‘historic’ moment Liberals select first openly gay premier THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Becoming the first openly gay premier in Canada is “historic” and “exciting,” but it shouldn’t overshadow her role in governing the country’s most populous province, Ontario Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne said Sunday. The premier-to-be said she feels a “special responsibility” to young gay people who are looking for a more accepting world, but she’s not a gay activist and doesn’t plan to spend the next few months talking about her sexual orientation. “It is important to me that young people and people who are frightened see the possibilities,” she said. “And if I can help people to be less frightened, then that’s a wonderful, wonderful thing.” But for her, the real historic moment is becoming the sixth woman premier in Canada. “We’ve wondered about why we haven’t had a higher percentage of women in legislatures and in Parliament,” she said. “Well, maybe now we’re reaching a critical mass.” Wynne’s victory as Ontario’s Liberal leader and next premier is a significant historic moment for the country, said Helen Kennedy, executive director of Egale Canada, a national

lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered human rights group. But having an out, progressive woman to lead the province is something to be proud of too, she said. “It sends a strong message to those young kids who are cautious and nervous about their own journey with respect to their sexual orientation and gender identity, that you can do it if you’re true to yourself,” Kennedy said. It’s also important for the parents of LCBT children to know that their kids can be and do whatever they want, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, she added. It’s a “giant leap forward” at a social and cultural level for Ontario, said Bryan Evans, a politics professor at Toronto’s Ryerson University. Wynne, 59, was married to a man and had three children before she came out at the age of 37. She is now married to her longtime partner, Jane Rounthwaite. While her sexuality wasn’t a secret at Queen’s Park and Wynne didn’t shy away from it, it wasn’t something she spoke about publicly in her work as a cabinet minister. She didn’t shrink from questions Sunday about a new sexual education curriculum for elementary schools, saying she intends to revamp it nearly three

years after some controversial changes forced Premier Dalton McGuinty to put it on hold. But she’ll consult with parents and education groups in putting a new curriculum together. Homophobia always comes up in her campaigns and did in this one too, with a Toronto newspaper editorial asking if Ontario is ready for an openly gay premier. The question is posed to her as an electability issue, but it underestimates Ontarians to assume that sexual orientation is going to determine how they vote, she said. “I’m not naive enough to think that homophobia and transphobia are still not alive and well in Ontario and around the country,” she said. But Wynne, who’s served as minister of education, aboriginal affairs, municipal affairs and transportation, also has a solid reputation as a politician who can prevail even when the odds are stacked against her. Wynne rose to the top job because of her ability to lead and who she is as a person, Kennedy said. “I think the first thing that people will judge her on is her ability to get the job done,” she said. “I think she will be judged ... on her policies, before they will judge her on her sexual orientation. It is a part of who she is, but it’s one part.”

Penticton, Creston take tourney titles Despite only one loss, Tier 2 Reps just miss playoff round BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff

The first game of the Greater Trail Pee Wee Rep Tier  2 tournament eventually decided how things would end for the host team on the weekend. A 2-2 draw against the Nelson Leafs in Friday’s opening game  ultimately determined the fate of the Greater-Trail entry in the annual event. That tie, coupled with a 6-4 win over Spokane and a 5-3 loss to Port Moody, left the Smokies one agonizing point short of a berth in the playoff round on Sunday. “It was so close,” said Reps co-coach Dennis McKinnon. “And that’s the way our league (the Okanagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association) has gone this year.” Four teams from the OMAHA division were part of the six teams, including the host team. However, the final standings of the tournament didn’t reflect the regular season standings. Once the final draw was determined, three teams with two wins – Penticton, Port Moody and Kelowna – advanced to the playoff round. Penticton got the bye  into the final of the seven-team tournament while Port Moody overcame Kelowna in the

Sunday morning semifinal to set up the championship game. It wasn’t close as the rested Penticton squad skated to a lopsided 7-1 win in the final. Penticton finished fourth in the OMAHA standings behind Trail, Kelowna and first-place Westside Ironically on the weekend, Westside got past Spokane on Sunday to finish sixth. “That’s the way it is,” said McKinnon. “We’re all so close. This weekend Penticton was the best team.” Meanwhile, all that was left for the Smokies was a rematch with Nelson in the fourth-fifth place game, which they won in a landslide by a 10-0 score. Greater Trail actually finished with two wins, a loss and a tie although its final game, a 5-2 win over Kelowna Saturday night only impacted Kelowna’s record. Nevertheless, Bradley Ross had a pair of goals as the Smokies sealed the win with three goals in the third. Its Saturday morning victory over Spokane saw the American squad erase a 4-0 deficit before Lucas Anselmo and Tom McConnachie scored thirdperiod goals for the winning margin. Austin Cox scored twice for Greater Trail but those were the only goals the team could get past Nelson goalie Brody Herridge in Friday’s 2-2 draw.

“If we beat Nelson, we end up in first place,” said McKinnon. The team’s only loss came Friday night against Port Moody. Conner Sieb, McConnachie and Ross scored for Trail but it would be Port Moody’s Zack Dallzanna stealing the show with three goals and five points for the winners. After its solid win over Nelson on Sunday, the Reps now seek out exhibition games to keep the team sharp as it readies for the provincial tournament March 18-22 in Salmon

Arm. Meanwhile in Fruitvale, Greater Trail squared off against five other teams in the Tier 3 tournament. Although the local squad finished sixth overall, losing to Cranbrook on Sunday morning, a Kootenay team did come out on top. Creston completed the double-win on the final day by beating Grand Forks in the semifinal and capping off the weekend with an exciting 3-2 win over Kelowna in the final. Kelowna beat Spokane in the other semifinal.

Three solid games net Smokies a pair of wins Todd picks up first BCHL shutout, Davidson on fourgame goal scoring streak BY GUY BERTRAND Times Staff

The Trail Smoke Eaters got stellar goaltending, consistent scoring and a timely awakening  of its  power play to return home with two of three wins from the B.C. coast. Friday night, Adam Todd chalked up his first BCHL shutout stopping all 35 shots while Luke Sandler scored twice to lead the Smokies to a 4-0 win over the Nanaimo Clippers. Saturday, Todd couldn’t repeat his performance against his former team, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, and despite another two-goal effort from  Sandler, Trail was tripped up 5-4.

minutes to play. The win not only provided a great start to the weekend but derailed the red-hot Clippers who were sailing along with six wins in its last seven games. If the Smokies helped tighten up the Island Division by cooling off the Clippers, the team made it that much closer after letting the Alberni Valley Bulldogs off the hook in a 5-4 loss. The Smokies outshot  Alberni 41-26 but were chasing the Dogs’ tail most of the night. Jesse Knowler spotted Trail an early lead but Alberni Valley held a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes and made it 4-1 nine minutes into the second. Nevertheless, the Smokies  answered with their hottest hands of the trip when Davidson and Sandler scored two minutes apart to suddenly change the tone to a 4-3 game. See POWER, Page 12

Hawks close out solid January with win By Guy Bertrand Times Staff

With one month to go in the jockeying for playoff positions, the Beaver Valley Nitehawks closed out January on a winning note and geared up for a busy February. The Nitehawks scored a 4-2 win over the  Sicamous Eagles on Saturday to rebound from a 5-2 loss in Armstrong on Friday to the North Okanagan Knights. While the loss in Armstrong ended a six-game unbeaten streak, the Nitehawks can still find solace in that Saturday’s win in Sicamous allowed them to close out January with only two losses in nine games. That sets the stage for a hectic final month which will see Beaver Valley host Nelson, Castlegar and Spokane in home-and-

A four-point weekend enabled Beaver Valley’s Dallas Calvin to grab a share of the KIJHL scoring lead. home games over the final three weekends. The logjam continued in the Neil Murdoch Division with five points separating the top three teams – Nelson, Castlegar and Beaver Valley. While those three clubs represent a strong sample of the elite in the KIJHL, the Hawks also butted heads with the Knights, who rank second overall in the


league behind Nelson. The North Okanagan team gave up two goals to Dallas Calvin, the league’s points co-leader, but otherwise shut down the Hawks en route to its 10th straight win. Calvin gave Beaver Valley a very brief lead five minutes into the game but 45 seconds later the Knights responded to erase that deficit then scored two more goals to skate out

of the first period holding a 3-1 lead. The Nitehawks tried to rally but could not dent Austin Buzzell’s armour between the pipes for the Knights. Buzzell stopped 41 of 43 shots. The tally of shots in the third saw Buzzell repel all 19 to seal down the Knights 10th-straight win  since the  start of 2013. The Knights made it 11 wins in 11 January games with a 7-0 whitewash of Summerland Sunday. M e a n w h i l e , Saturday night in Sicamous, Kurt Black’s goal, his 25th of the season,  with 97 seconds to play in the first period spotted the Hawks a 2-1 lead on the Eagles after 20 minutes. Danny Vlanich opened the scoring for

the hungry Hawks who came out flying and outshot Sicamous 16-5 in the first. Despite keeping up the onslaught in the middle frame, launching another 15 shots on goal, Beaver Valley was blanked while the Eagles swooped in for the lone goal and send the game into the third tied 2-2. Dan Holland put Beaver Valley back in the driver’s seat two minutes into the period and Riley Brandt added an insurance marker. With a 6-2-1 record in January, the Hawks now flip the calendar for a bevy of playoff appetizers. It begins Feb. 1 in Fruitvale when the Hawks host the Nelson Leafs in the first of a home-andhome weekend set.

FROM PAGE 11 But  Trail’s power play, which  went o-fer in  seven tries in its first two games of the trip, gave up a  pivotal shorthanded goal to the Bulldogs with four minutes  left in the second period to trail 5-3 with 20 minutes to play. Trail coach Bill Birks sent out Stanwood to relieve Todd and the move sparked the Smokies as Sandler scored  three minutes into the third to narrow the gap to 5-4. Then seconds later the Smokies were handed a five-minute power play after Jared Wilson was tagged for a blow to the head. But Trail came up empty on the major chance and another power play opportunity five minutes later and failed to net the equalizer  in 13 shots on goal in the final 20 minutes. In Sunday’s final game of the trip, that lack of timely power play scoring was put to  bed early as Knowler notched the man-advantage marker four minutes into the game to knot the score

with Langley at 1-1. The Rivermen staggered the Smokies with a goal just 74 seconds into the second period. But once again Trail got off the mat and returned fire with Davidson’s fourth goal in four games just two minutes later to knot the game at 2-2 after two periods. Both teams came out shooting in the final period combining for 35 shots on goal with 18 of those headed at Stanwood. He let one shot get past him, coming two minutes into third, which allowed the Rivermen to take a 3-2 lead. It stayed that way until the midway mark when Adam Wheeldon netted the equalizer with his seventh of the season. With three minutes to play and the scored tied 3-3, Langley was penalized for too many men on the ice. It was an opportunity that the Smokies missed on Saturday in Alberni Valley but capitalized quickly on Sunday in Langley. It took just 29 seconds before Pears put the puck in the Langley net and put team ahead to stay at 4-3. Perhaps fittingly the penalty killing unit, which had killed 15 of 16 situations on the trip, was called on again and killed 99 seconds of one final Langley power play before time expired. The Smokies closed out January with four wins and an overtime loss in 10 games. The team opens February with home games against Salmon Arm on Feb. 5 and a rematch with Alberni Valley on Feb. 8.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - This may sound sacrilegious to the legions of hardcore “Star Wars” fans, but having J.J. Abrams direct “Episode VII” will be a vast improvement and the best thing to happen to the franchise in a very long time. Yes, it was incredibly cool in 2005’s “Episode III - Revenge of the Sith” to see the completion of Anakin Skywalker’s transformation from plucky, love-struck teen to the embodiment of all that is deeply evil in the galaxy as Darth Vader - to hear him take that first raspy breath from beneath the iconic black helmet. But George Lucas’ prequels were, for the most part, soulless, airless affairs and a far cry from the imagination and roughhewn, can-do thrills of his original trilogy. You don’t go to a “Star Wars” movie - and watch it 18,000 times, then camp out in front of a theatre with your homemade light saber and Yoda sleeping bag waiting for the next one - for the smart, complex dialogue or well-drawn characters. But with Abrams at the helm and Oscar-winning “Little Miss Sunshine” screenwriter Michael Arndt crafting the script, there is some hope (a new hope, if you will) that the series finally will be infused with a deeper sense of humanity. Lucas was correct in calling Abrams “an ideal choice to direct the new Star Wars film” in announcing the selection of a director in a late-night news release on Friday. And when he told the world in October that he was selling his Lucasfilm empire, including the lucrative and beloved “Star Wars” franchise, to The Walt Disney Co. for $4.05 billion, Abrams was at the top of many fans’ lists of dream directors. He certainly was at the top of mine when I pondered what sort of fit various filmmakers might be for this material. Back then, I wrote that Abrams was “the most obvious choice, really. His sci-fi bona fides were already beyond reproach, and he solidified them with his reimagining of the ‘Star Trek’ franchise in 2009. ... This just makes sense all around.” Abrams said being chosen to direct “Episode VII” is “as surreal as it is exciting.” Asked what kind of spin he might put on such wellestablished material, he acknowledged that it was early in the process, but said: “I want to do the fans proud. I want to make sure the story is something that touches people. And we’re just getting started. I’m very excited.”

Director a good fit to continue ‘Star Wars’ saga



Dick Van Dyke saluted for stellar career THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Forget dishonest modesty. Dick Van Dyke seems nothing short of gobsmacked about receiving the life-achievement honour at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. “They must’ve gotten to the ‘V’s,” he joked. Though probably best known for “The Dick Van Dyke Show” (1961-66) and Walt Disney’s big-screen musical “Mary Poppins” (1964), the 87-year-old Van Dyke said that, with the SAG Award, “I kind of find a home. I’ve always been a bit of an orphan, because actors say, ‘Well, he’s more of a dancer.’ And dancers say, ‘No. He’s really a singer.’ And singers say, ‘No. He’s an actor.’ So, now I’ve got a home. I can actually refer to these people as my peers.” His career has spanned eight decades, starting with work as a disc jockey and a standup comic in the late ‘40s. He even worked as a national television morning-show host, with no less than Walter Cronkite serving as his news anchor. But perhaps Van Dyke’s most critical career break came in 1960, when director Gower Champion hired him as the male lead opposite Chita Rivera in the new Broadway-bound stage musical “Bye Bye Birdie.” Just about a year later, Van Dyke was starring on his own sitcom, in the role of a televisioncomedy writer on “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” Three prime-time Emmys for Van Dyke and more than 50 years later, the series remains revered by many critics as one of the earliest models of great workplace comedy. “That whole show was the genius of (show creator and writer) Carl Reiner, who said he wrote Jewish comedy for gentile actors,” Van Dyke said. During the series’ run, Van Dyke also enjoyed big-screen hits, including the 1963 “Birdie” movie and the 1964 all-star comedy, “What a Way to Go!” But biggest of all was “Mary Poppins,” in which he introduced the Oscar-winning song “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” but for which he also took, and still takes, serious ribbing, even from his leading lady and longtime pal Julie Andrews. “She still kids me about my so-called Cockney accent,” Van Dyke said, adding a line of defence: “I had an Irish coach ... so he wasn’t any better than me.” Van Dyke’s favourite professional life achievement? “That I made ‘em smile,” he replied, smiling himself. “And I think that’s asking enough.”

hours. However, that is a part of my compensation agreement and a variable portion of my salary, not a bonus. I also think my boss has decided that the office staff, most of whom are single parents, need the bonus more than the associates do. But my law degree came with six figures of student loan debt. This is less about the money than it is about the disparate treatment, especially between the two law offices. Is there any way to bring this up to my boss for next season without sounding like a spoiled child? -- Struggling Young Professional

on again, but this time it is different. Harry is totally head over heels, but she isn’t into him so much. I used to talk to him every day, and now I barely get a “hello.” His girlfriend says I’m “bugging” him and never lets him hang around long enough to talk to me. We all know it’s only a matter of time before it ends badly. How can I help Harry realize what’s going on? I want my friend back. -- Worried in California Dear California: Unless there is abuse, it is pointless for you to involve yourself in Harry’s relationship. He could benefit from counseling to work on the reasons he pursues such a self-destructive romance, but until he admits that he makes bad choices, your words will have little effect. Since the relationship is likely to end sooner than later, you will have other opportunities to discuss this with him.

Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Ormond Beach, Fla.” Last year, I went to a male doctor with a gynecological problem. He said I had menopause, and that was it. I made an appointment with a female nurse practitioner,

who sent me to a gynecologist. The gynecologist discovered I had cancer and referred me to an oncologist. Fortunately, the surgeon was able to get it all. I’m glad I didn’t listen to the first doctor. Keep trying until

you get some help. -Thankful in Southern Indiana Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to

Dear Struggling: We understand why this seems unfair, but unless a yearly bonus is part of your compensation package, such money is given at the discretion of the managing partner. It is possible that the associates in the other office have a different compensation agreement that includes a Christmas bonus or that there are other factors involved. You could ask what you can do to increase the likelihood that you will merit additional pay at the end of the year, or whether something about your performance has been disappointing. Beyond that, you’re out of luck. Dear Annie: My friend “Harry” has had an on-again, off-again girlfriend for the past year. They have broken up many times, but claim they’re right for each other.

Dear Annie: I am an associate in a law firm with two offices. Each office has three associate attorneys and is managed by a partner. During my first year, I was the only associate in my office, and I received a Christmas bonus. The second year, we hired two additional associates. I was devastated when all of the staff but none of the associates received a bonus that year, as I’d planned to use the money to buy gifts for my family. I wasn’t surprised last month when, once again, the associates received nothing. I did discover, however, that all of the associates in the other law office received bonuses. I understand that a Christmas bonus is not something I am entitled to receive, and if I bring it up to my boss, it would make me sound selfish and greedy.

That’s why you feel world-weary and discouraged. Don’t worry -- this passes quickly. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid authority figures and bosses at work today; it’s best to keep a low profile. Don’t ask for favors. Don’t ask for anything. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Children seem to be an extra responsibility or a burden today. (These things happen; it goes with the territory.) Romance also might be in the toilet. It’s a tough day. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Postpone family discussions, especially those with parents, for another day. Whatever plans you have will meet with obstacles. (This is almost a cer-

By adding bidding to Whist the game becomes Bridge


he last three columns have introduced a version of whist that is very similar to bridge. We just add bidding to whist, and we get bridge. East deals the above four hands as shown last week. Everybody counts their points and if one has 12 points, one opens the bidding starting with the dealer.  Here South has 15 to 17 points and a balanced hand and therefore can open 1NT. Each subsequent bid has to be either pass, double or a bid higher on the bidding ladder.

The bidding lada stopper (an ace or der is essentially king). If there is only alphabetical order one doubleton, it can and is one club, be two small cards. one diamond, one Over one heart, one spade, one notrump, North bids notrump, two clubs, two diamonds telltwo diamonds, two ing partner he has warren hearts, two spades, five hearts or longer. two notrump, three North’s rebid tells clubs, et cetera all partner his point Play Bridge the way to seven count and length. notrump. A balanced hand means The responding notrump no singletons and no voids and ranges: if the hand has more than one 1. 0-7 is the weak and passing doubleton, each doubleton has range


2. 8-9 is the invitational range 3. 10-15 is the game range (3NT or four of a major, hearts or spades) 4. 16+ is the slam range (6 or 7 level contracts) North’s hand fits number 3 so he rebids 3NT which South corrects to four hearts. If North had six hearts, he would have known right away they had the Golden fit because the one notrump bid guarantees two cards in every suit. With six hearts and game points, the rebid would have been four hearts.

The lead and the play are the same as last week. Declarer makes his contract plus one overtrick for +450 points. Scoring will be discussed in later columns. Notes: -The four suits are divided into two categories. The minors are clubs and diamonds and the major suits are hearts and spades. -Bidding game (3NT, 4 of a major and 5 of a minor) gives a game bonus while bidding slam gives slam bonuses. One only says one made a game or slam when it is bid and made.
