City has the cash to purchase airport

Food scraps program could lighten load at dump BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

The city has enough cash squirrelled away in reserves that it could buy the Trail Regional Airport outright when negotiations for its sale conclude, says one city councillor. Robert Cacchioni said the purchase of the airport and its lands from the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) would be a capital acquisition by the City of Trail, and would require no borrowing. The purchase of the airport would be funded out of the land reserve fund and some other surpluses the city had built up, said Cacchioni. “No we don’t,” have to borrow funds, he said, adding that the sale of the airport could go through if it was amenable to both sides. The negotiations on the sale are still moving forward, he noted, but the land and facility requires an appraisal before numbers are discussed. The property was originally bought by the RDKB from Teck Trail Operations for $1.5 million. Cacchioni said the airport budget was set at status quo at the East End Service (EES) meeting Feb. 19 with the only big ticket item being the paving of the air strip stopways. The project was supposed to be done in conjunction with the Ministry of Transportation last year but was delayed. Cacchioni hoped there would be resolution to negotiations on the airport before the project was set to begin in August. “Then the city would negotiate for that particular paving,” he said. It was the issue of the paving that was one of the final straws in the city’s dealings with its other EES partners—including Rossland, Warfield, Fruitvale, Montrose, Area A and Area B—when the project was rejected last year. After receiving no support for an airport service review in late November, Cacchioni said the city was still committed to expansion of the airport. And then, fuelled by the impasse over what had been characterized as a lack of support for the airport by the other regional district partners in the service, the city began pursuing the purchase of the airport from the RDKB in January.

Jessie Hendrigan, volunteer with CiB, displayed a sample banner in Little Scotland (McLean Street in East Trail) last week. Banners of traditional family tartans are now on sale at city hall in Trail, and will be hung along Gyro Park walkway this spring as a theme to the 2013 CiB international competition.

Trail honours its Scottish roots BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

Auld bonnie tartans will be the highlight of this year’s Trail Community in Bloom (CiB) theme. Starting this spring, CiB will honour the Scottish heritage in Trail by transforming the Gyro Park walkway into “Avenue of the Clans.” Banners made from the tartan patterns of Trail’s Scottish pioneer families will be hung from pathway light posts. Originally, CiB planned to feature the banners in a section of East Trail known as “Little Scotland,” however

the plan had to be revised after it was determined that the Fortis power poles that line those streets were off limits, said CiB volunteer Jessie Hendrigan. After the first bridge was built in 1912, Scottish immigrants moved across the water to settle in the down-river end of East Trail. “The bottom of snake hill to McQuarrie (street) used to be called “Little Scotland,” said Hendrigan. “All the streets in this area have Scottish names.” In her research of the area’s See BANNERS, Page 3

A new pilot program could reduce the amount of waste going into the Trail dump and give something back to the environment. The food scraps program in Grand Forks has reportedly kept up to 70 per cent of waste out of its landfill over the last year. Now the project could be implemented across the regional district, including Greater Trail’s McElvey Creek Landfill. The project was popular in Grand Forks and composted meat, fruit and vegetables into soil. When the East End Services (EES) committee—that includes the communities of Trail, Warfield, Montrose, Rossland, Fruitvale and Areas A and B—looked at the amount of waste saved from the landfill the idea was adopted for consideration. “If we can reduce the waste going to the dump by 50 per cent … you have now extended the life of the dump by 60 years,” said Robert Cacchioni, the city’s representative on the EES committee. And with the current dump expected to be full in 30 years—and a new dump cost in the range of $300 million—the new project could be worth tens of millions of dollars to extend the life of the landfill, said Cacchioni. “It’s not only important environmentally, but it’s valuable in terms of the economy because you are saving a fortune,” he said. The project could be introduced within the next year in some parts of the region. Food scraps material would be used to enhance regional district and municipal lands. The scraps would be sorted by homeowners and would go into a separate bin from garbage. As well, the EES committee will be considering putting in a second access to the landfill, creating a berm along the backside of the landfill between it and the high school. Approved by the regional district’s environmental committee, the new access and berm could cost up to $2.5 million, paid for from across the regional district. The new access would be further up the highway past the current entrance. It would go in where some earth material was previously removed from the side hill. It would solve the problem of where people are turning, eliminating congestion, and it would give the dump more room on the side near the high school, giving it around 70 years of life.

Cosmetic changes coming to local transit

REgional Making the days count

Revelstoke

Avalanche claims resort employee By Alex Cooper

Revelstoke Times Review

By Timothy Schafer Times Staff

Greater Trail transit riders will see changes this spring with a few new cosmetic alterations. The East End Services (EES) committee approved $15,000 for two new bus shelters for hard weather spots in Trail and glass plates for an existing stop in Fruitvale at the Feb. 19 meeting. The new shelters were approved on recommendation by Trail EES representative Robert Cacchioni after he noticed places where seniors and students had to stay out in the cold and snow. He noted that both East Trail and Sunningdale would likely receive a new stop. “We are getting a younger population coming into those areas and they are having more kids and we are having these little kids standing out in the snow and rain,” he said. The Fruitvale shelter will be glassed in for seniors who find it difficult to wait for the bus there in inclement weather and during the winter. The cost will be $12,000 for the two new shelters and the glass costs $3,000, half of the actual price tag to be split with BC Transit. One fare, one ride As of April 1 there will be one fare implemented for the region-wide transit system. The new fare will reduce the cost for transit for riders who travel into Castlegar and beyond. Around 8.9 per cent of the total Kootenay Boundary regional transit riders travel between Castlegar and Trail. “(The new fare) was designed to improve service and reduce costs in some places, but generally to make it easier for people who are using transit to understand it and not have to get on one bus and go on another bus,” said Cacchioni. The ease of using the new fare is expected to increase ridership.

Retiree Bruce Borden has been volunteering to work with Missy, a rambunctious lab-cross rescue, at the Trail B.C.S.P.C.A. for a few months now. This week will be bittersweet for Borden, as Missy will be flown to Penticton, in hopes of being adopted into a loving home.

Banners will display family name FROM PAGE 1 Scottish heritage, Hendrigan managed to procure an old phone book from her neighbour. The decades old book provided Hendrigan surnames that helped her locate local families of Scottish descent. “I found the names of people who still live here, and they gave me more names,” she said. “I’ve been busy listening to their stories about the Scottish heritage in Trail.” For those who don’t know what their family tartan is, Hendrigan will look it up from a reference list of banners that she has compiled. The banners are available

to order now, and can be purchased through CiB at city hall in Trail. Each banner will cost $200 and will display the family name on the tartan pattern. CiB secured $2000 in funding from Columbia Power Corporation that will be used to offset the costs of some the banners and the hardware to hang them, said Lana Rodlie, CiB volunteer. “Avenue of the Clans” grew from a comment that Mayor Dieter Boggs made a few years back. “We’ve been thinking about it for a few years, after Mayor Boggs saw something similar on his travels in Nova Scotia,” said Rodlie.

This year, CiB is also committed to more development on the White Garden at the far end of Jubilee Park. In addition, CiB is planning more development at the Shaver’s Bench garden and at the top of Glover Hill in West Trail, said Rodlie. The Community in Bloom (CiB) budget from the City of Trail is $125,000. This is the last year that Trail can compete in the international CiB competition, after winning the national award in 2010. Castlegar may be a growing competitor at the international level after winning the national award in their category last year, said Rodlie.

The victim of Friday’s avalanche near Revelstoke Mountain Resort was a resort employee who loved skiing and the outdoors, general manager Rob Elliott told the Times Review. “He was a great, outgoing gentleman,” Elliott said. “He’s a very bright young man who was finished school and he was following his passion for skiing and the outdoor lifestyle.” Holger Achim Fritz, a 24-year-old from Germany, was working at the RMR repair shop for the winter. RCMP released the man’s name on Monday, after notifying his family back home. He was here to enjoy the ski season and had been actively exploring the resort and the backcountry around Revelstoke, said Elliott. He said they had a number of discussions about skiing together. Fritz was in a group of five people touring past Greeley Lake towards an out-of-bounds run known as Birthday Chute on Friday afternoon. At some point, they triggered an avalanche, catching three of them in it. Elliott said Fritz was wearing an avalanche airbag but it wasn’t enough to save him. His ski partners were able to dig him out of the snow but he had already passed away. According to unconfirmed reports, they performed CPR for 20 minutes to no avail. The four survivors were able to return in bounds, leaving Fritz’s body behind. It was retrieved by Revelstoke Search and Rescue on Saturday morning. “People are affected pretty traumatically by it all. He was a genuine character, he got a long with everybody and its tough to get over it,” said Elliott. The avalanche danger for the alpine and treeline was rated high on Friday, meaning natural avalanches are likely and human-triggered avalanches very likely.

Nelson

Missing boarders found By Bob Hall Nelson Star

A Nelson father and son that spent the night in the backcountry near Whitewater Ski Resort managed to find their way out of trouble earlier this morning. On Sunday night just after 7 p.m., Nelson Search and Rescue received a call that a pair of snowboarders failed to return to their vehicle which was parked in the ski hill’s lot. It was reported that the father (37) and son (15) were intending to head into the backside of Ymir peak. With avalanche hazard high and darkness set it, no search was conducted on Sunday night.

A team of 13 Nelson Search and Rescue members was at the hill at first light Monday. With two teams in the backcountry conducting a search (helicopters could not be employed due to the fog) the pair showed up at the Whitewater lodge at around 9:30 a.m. The pair were checked by a search and rescue doctor, then released. After getting turned around and lost, the pair hunkered down into a snow pit, wrapped spruce boughs around themselves and huddled together through the night. Temperatures in the alpine were likely between –5 C and –8 C.

Provincial Injured eagle takes flight B.C. emerging as leader for LNG By Tom Fletcher Black Press

VANCOUVER – Executives for global natural gas companies say B.C. is well positioned to compete for Asia’s rising demand for new and cleaner energy supplies, although liquefied natural gas (LNG) export projects are still at least five years from loading the first ships. Industry and government representatives gathered in Vancouver’s new convention centre Monday for a two-day conference on LNG development, and heard about efforts to keep ahead of numerous competing countries. Federal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver announced Canada’s largest LNG export permit so far, to a joint venture of Shell Canada, Korea Gas, Mitsubishi and PetroChina International. The licence goes to LNG Canada Ltd., a consortium with an agreement to build export facilities on Haisla Nation territory near Kitimat. The B.C. government now expects at least five such export facilities to be built in the coming years. Oliver said attendance by global LNG producers and potential buyers is “a sign that B.C. is emerging as a

major player in the global natural gas market,” with reserves equivalent to meeting Japan’s expected demand for the next 275 years. The conference heard Monday from industry leaders about the threats as well as opportunities. Betsy Spomer, vice-president of global business development for BG Group (formerly British Gas), said bringing pipelines across two mountain ranges from B.C.’s shale gas deposits in the northeast to the coast is a significant challenge. New gas supplies from East Africa and the United States are also on the horizon, but BG Group still expects that B.C. is positioned as “the new Australia” in global LNG exports, Spomer said. She added that colder weather in the Prince Rupert area gives B.C. an advantage over places like the Gulf of Mexico, because gas needs to be compressed and chilled to low temperature for shipment. Luo Weizhong, vice president of China National Overseas Oil Company, said China needs LNG. Transport trucks in China are being converted from diesel to LNG, and the country is trying to replace coal power with cleaner alternatives to deal with air pollution problems.

Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff said he remembers cruising his GTO up and down Lakeshore Drive in his youth. This spring, the popular strip is going to be getting a facelift. The road and beach along the Okanagan Lake waterfront is one that figures large in the minds of residents. And even if their memories don’t stretch back as far as Barisoff’s, almost all Penticton residents have spent time enjoying the beach, which, among other things, is home to the annual Peach City Beach Cruise. “As all of us know in the South Okanagan, the beachfront here at the north end of Penticton has been a place where everybody has gone for many years,” said Barisoff. “I know that over the months to come, we are going to see the rehabilitation of the walkway to be something fantastic. This

is a great project and it doesn’t happen by chance.” After almost a year of planning, work is almost ready to start on the popular recreation and tourist area, with confirmation on Friday that the federal government is contributing $1.2 million through the Gas Tax fund to the project. “We’ve done the planning but until you have the cashin hand, so to speak, you are always wondering,” said Rod King, chair of the Waterfront Revitalization committee. Okanagan Coquihalla MP Dan Albas was on hand to deliver the announcement, standing near the iconic Peach on a cold, windy winter morning. He started by talking about the vital role the waterfront played in the development of commerce and transportation in Penticton. “But it was much more than that; it was a gathering place where family and friends could

cool off on a hot summer’s day … unlike today,” said Albas, noting that the waterfront still plays that role as well as being a major tourism and economic driver for the city. “We cannot afford not to invest in our critical economic and social infrastructure.” The pathway will have a smoother surface, enhanced access for those with mobility challenges, additional trees and new high-efficiency lighting, improvements intended not to just to rehabilitate some of the crumbling infrastructure on the current path but make the pathway more inviting to pedestrians and cyclists. “It will really enhance the experience on the waterfront,” said Coun. Helena Konanz. “We believe this will play a big part in adding to our community’s vibrancy and sustainability.” King expects a contractor will be chosen and the work started by mid-April.

ACADEMY AWARDS

Former ambassador satisfied with Affleck’s shoutout to Canada during acceptance speech

THE CANADIAN PRESS Former Canadian ambassador Ken Taylor says he was satisfied to hear Ben Affleck thank Canada as the director accepted the best picture Oscar for the political thriller “Argo” on Sunday night. Taylor watched the awards bash from the AOL offices in New York, where he took part in a live online interview with James Lipton of “Inside the Actors Studio.” Days earlier, the diplomat had suggested that Affleck mention Canada’s role in the 1979 rescue of U.S. embassy staffers if “Argo” - which dramatizes the high-risk operation won the top prize. Late Sunday, he acknowledged Affleck’s shoutout to Canada during a rapid-fire speech that also offered thanks to “everyone in the movie.” “He, in a rush, accepted and tried to extend recognition to everybody in sight and so that was fine. We were comfortable with that,” Taylor said. “I think that the nature of the Oscars is such that it’s an electric moment for those involved and they all want to say something within a set time and I think that’s it. Whatever scripted thoughts they had they put away and get caught up in the theme and the celebration.” Flanked by co-producer George Clooney, Affleck threw kudos to the real-life CIA agent who inspired his film. “Tony Mendez, who let us do his story, thank you,” Affleck said after Michelle Obama announced the top prize. “I want to thank Canada, I want to thank our friends in Iran living in terrible circumstances right now. I want to thank my wife, who I don’t normally associate with Iran.” Affleck’s film - which had already won a slew of awards leading up to the Oscars - centres on Mendez and a Tinseltown scheme to concoct a fake movie project that would disguise the escapees as a Canadian film crew. Taylor has been outspoken in his assertion that “Argo” minimizes Canada’s role in spiriting the employees out of Iran in the midst of the hostage crisis. Starring Canadian actor Victor Garber as Taylor, “Argo” says little about the ambassador’s intricate role in concealing the fugitives and makes no mention of his efforts to persuade Ottawa to issue fake passports, arrange plane tickets and spy for the U.S. government - all while carrying on with his role as a diplomat. It also completely ignores the role of Taylor’s deputy, the recently deceased John Sheardown, who took the first call from escapee Bob Anders seeking refuge and also hid embassy employees in his home.

Director/producer Ben Affleck accepts the award for best picture for “Argo” during the Oscars on Sunday.

movie ends with the CIA deciding to let Canada have the credit for helping the Americans escape. Affleck flew Taylor to Los Angeles after the Toronto debut and allowed him to insert a postscript that gave Canada some credit. Taylor called the initial postscript lines “disgraceful and insulting.” As criticisms continued to mount last week, Affleck called Taylor a “hero,” and said he thought he’d addressed the former ambassador’s concerns. After the successful escape on Jan. 27, 1980, Taylor was widely hailed in both Canada and the United States. “The release of the six done by another country ... sort of released a euphoria,” Taylor recalled at his Ryerson talk. “U.S. citizens responded in an extraordinary way - no Canadian paid for a drink for two weeks, (there were) free ski tow tickets, free bus tickets, police ignored parking tickets. There were some tangible benefits to this.” Sunday, he said he was satisfied that people knew the full story: “I think certainly most Canadians now know what the story was.”

“Argo” screenwriter Chris Terrio, who won best adapted screenplay prize on Sunday night, mentioned Taylor in his speech, after saluting Mendez. During a recent talk with Ryerson University students, Taylor took issue with a myriad of creative liberties in “Argo,” including the “black and white” portrayal of Iranian people, fabricated scenes and the suggestion that Taylor himself was little more than a meek observer to CIA heroics. He summed it up by saying Terrio “had no idea” what he was talking about. Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter has also taken aim at Affleck’s film. He called “Argo” a complete distortion when he accepted an honorary degree from Queen’s University in November and followed that up with Mon. & Tues.

Suzuki is the Don Cherry of TV science

H

e has a white beard and a bully pulpit on CBC television, but he doesn’t use it to promote hockey fighting. Instead he sucker punches the oil and gas industry at every opportunity, with increasingly flagrant disregard for the rules of science. Public broadcasting referees keep their whistles in their pockets, wary of offending a legend. He’s David Suzuki, and he has evolved from geneticist to TV celebrity to his current role as the Don Cherry of Canadian science, an angry curmudgeon lashing out at his enemies. Earlier I wrote about Suzuki’s hit piece on the Alberta oil sands, featuring selective pollution studies and a celebrity turn by movie director James Cameron, who toured the alleged carbon crime scene in his personal jet helicopter. Suzuki’s latest Scud

missile of misinformation was launched Feb. 7 on “The Nature of Things.” It’s called “Shattered Ground,” and it borrows heavily from earlier shock docs that target hydraulic fracturing for shale oil and gas. While clearly aimed at the surging shale gas industry in B.C., this hour-long program offers little about B.C.’s long history of gas development. Suzuki’s voice-over refers briefly to B.C.’s Oil and Gas Commission, insinuating it was set up as a pet regulator protecting the industry from stricter oversight. Mostly the show focuses on places like Dish, Texas and Dimock, Pennsylvania. The Texas segment talks about traces of neurotoxins in residents’ blood samples, blaming this on gas drilling and “fracking,” the new swear word of professional environmentalists. The evidence shows some people have these

traces in their blood, but others don’t, which suggests that more likely sources are cigarettes or exposure to disinfectants. Pennsylvania and Colorado are key stops for the anti-fracking crowd. For centuries there have been places known for methane dissolved in groundwater, typically from shallow coal seams. This is where you can find a rustic fellow to shake a jug of well water and touch his Bic lighter to it, producing a brief blue flame. The standard sequence moves to a sink and faucet, where a more

impressive methane fireball is generated. Suzuki’s voice-over notes that this is the scene that really gets media attention. There’s no evidence that drilling caused it, but hey, it’s TV. Science, meet “Hillbilly Handfishin’.” Protest sequences take up much of the program. Moms rally against a gas well near a school in Erie, Pennsylvania, forcing evil Canadian corporation Encana to back off. An elderly Quebec woman sobs on camera, convinced that a nearby gas well will trigger a relapse of her cancer. One bit of local content is a segment on frackinginduced earthquakes, presented with sombre alarm by Ben Parfitt, go-to researcher for the antiindustry left in B.C. These are detectable by sensitive instruments, as is the case with some mining and other industrial activities, but according to the Oil and Gas

Commission, they don’t do any actual harm. It should be noted that Suzuki doesn’t do much beyond reading a script on these shows. He has people to load up the propaganda weaponry, just as his ghostwriter in Toronto cranks out the relatively innocuous weekly columns that run in some Black Press publications. In fairness, most episodes of “The Nature of Things” are in the original spirit of the show. A recent program on an ancient Egyptian aquifer, voiced by Suzuki over “National Geographic” video footage, would be appropriate for a high school classroom. The same cannot be said for this anti-fracking screed, which is plainly and recklessly calculated to twist public opinion against a crucial B.C. industry.

Box Office

‘Identity Thief’ still tops THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Hollywood’s latest films performed tepidly at the box office on Oscar weekend, with Melissa McCarthy’s “Identity Thief” returning to the top spot in its third week of release. According to studio estimates Sunday, the Universal comedy earned $14.1 million over the weekend, enough to regain the box-office title after losing it last week to Fox’s “A Good Day to Die Hard.” With a cumulative total of $93.7 million, “Identity Thief” is the biggest hit so far in 2013.

beverages at check-outs and similar child targeted sites. At the municipal level this should be extended to control the availability of junk foods and beverages near schools. Third, the federal government should implement a salt reduction strategy (including warning labels, advertising restrictions and procurement policies as in Bill C-460). Although salt in itself is not calorific, it is a key ingredient in the production of many junk foods – and often what keeps us coming back for more. Fourth, governments needs to introduce a regulatory requirement for better calorie and nutrient information at the point of consumption in restaurants and other food outlets. But wait: is this the dreaded ‘nanny statism’ we’ve all been warned about? In New York, when Mayor Michael Bloomberg controlled the size of SSBs, he was accused of creating a ‘nanny state.’ But when the food and beverage industry makes large profits, leaving taxpayers to pick up the costs of providing health care for the victims of obesityrelated disease, this is a failure of the market mechanism. It is governments’ role to take corrective measures. Yes, there may be some unintended consequences from such regulation – time will tell. But doing nothing is not an option. Instead, we should move forward now, but closely monitor and assess the results, learning from any mistakes and spreading success to other regions. To wait would be to lose the opportunity to make a real difference now – for us, and for future generations.

An editorial from the Winnipeg Free Press The Harper government’s Office of Religious Freedom may be well-intentioned, but it is hard to escape the observation it is more about politics than effective policy and value for money. Andrew Bennett, a Christian college professor, will have a staff of four and a budget of $5 million to monitor and report on religious persecution around the world, which, God knows, is responsible for much bloodshed as well as being an impediment to the building of peaceful societies and democracy. Religious freedom, however, falls under the rubric of human rights, and there is no shortage of government and non-government agencies that speak forcefully on those issues.

The UN Human Rights Council, for example, expends considerable effort promoting human rights and drawing attention to violations. It deploys special rapporteurs, representatives, independent experts and working groups that “monitor, examine, advise and publicly report on thematic issues or human rights situations in specific countries.” Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and a long list of other agencies are also involved in similar tasks. Canada’s Foreign Affairs Department, with hundreds of operatives on the ground around the world, is also keenly interested in human rights, funnelling information up the chain to the prime minister’s office for action. If Mr. Bennett can contribute to this effort, so much the

better, but it seems unlikely he will accomplish much more than publish yet another annual report on human rights violations. Persecuted minorities do not need another report. What they really need is for leaders like Prime Minister Stephen Harper to speak out the next time he visits countries where the abuse is occurring.

Surging Smokies down Vees in OT BY JIM BAILEY

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks lost homeice advantage with a split against the Nelson Leafs in KIJHL playoff action on the weekend, and will look to take it back in Nelson tonight. Following a demoralizing 6-1 loss to Nelson Friday night, the Nitehawks regained their composure with a 5-3 win over the Leafs Saturday at the Beaver Valley Arena. “You work hard all year for home-ice advantage and then you lose it in one game, so it just goes to show you what it means,” said B.V. coach Terry Jones. “The next game is the next game and you go from there.” The Nitehawks probably deserved a better result Friday, outshooting the Leafs 49-38, but Leaf goalie Brett Soles flummoxed the Hawks all night. B.V. again looked vulnerable in the first period of Saturday night’s match, compounded by undisciplined penalties, that spotted Nelson a 2-1 first-period lead. However, the Hawks turned it around in the second period, scoring three times to go up 4-3 heading into the third. “I really thought the key was the penalty

SNOWBOARD CROSS

Pitman twins World Junior bound BY TIMES STAFF Warfield’s Mitch and Tommy Pitman are flying around the world in order to fly down a snowboard-cross track in Erzurum, Turkey for the World Junior Snowboard-cross championship this weekend. The twins hopped a plane in Spokane Monday and will board six flights, and travel over 10,000 kilometres, taking more than 24 hours to arrive at their destination in northern Turkey. This will be the fourth and final

World Juniors for the 19-year-old brothers, having competed in Spain, Italy, and New Zealand in the past three years. Tommy is coming off a just-missed podium finish at the NorAm Cup in Big White last week placing fourth and sixth in the two SBX events. Pitman was leading the second race when another racer clipped him sending him into a spin, and causing him to miss advancing to the second race final. Mitch meanwhile finished in a respectable 11th and 14th at Big White and had a solid 13th place fin-

ish at the NorAm Cup race in Killington, Vt. the previous week, while Tommy had a seventh-place finish. Tommy finished 17th and Mitch in 22nd position at the Junior World’s in Sierra Nevada, Spain last year. After the Worlds Mitch will be heading back to prepare for the NorAm race at Mt Hood, Ore. and Tommy will stay in Switzerland to attend two World Cups at Arosa and Veysonnaz. They will finish up the season at Big White on the Easter weekend at the Nationals.

The drama continued on Saturday as another gutsy effort from the Trail Smoke Eaters helped them stay in the playoff hunt with a thrilling overtime victory over Penticton at the Cominco Arena. The Smokies beat the Interior division leading Penticton Vees 4-3 in the second OT to remain tied with Salmon Arm SilverBacks for the fourth and final playoff spot. Garrett McMullen took a pass from Valik Chichkin and broke down the left side, firing a shot past the Vees’ netminder Nic Renyard at 1:12 of the 3-on-3 overtime period to launch the celebration. McMullen counted his 19th goal of the season as the Smokies won its third in a row, and fifth game in GARRETT it’s last seven, but are deadMCMULLEN locked with the SilverBacks with 50 points, after the Backs beat Vernon 3-2 on Friday. Trail native Jake Lucchini opened the scoring for the Smokies as he was sent in all alone by Marley Keca. Renyard made the pad save but Lucchini deftly picked up his own rebound, circled the back of the net and jammed home the puck to make it 1-0. The physical game was punctuated by hard hits and rough stuff after the whistle, but the first two periods stayed 1-0 thanks in large part to Trail goalie Adam Todd who turned aside 23 shots in the first two frames. But the teams would find their scoring touch, erupting for five goals in the third. After Adam Wheeldon took a roughing penalty, the Vees Brock Balson would tie it finishing a play from former Smokie Sam Mellor. Mellor then set up Jordan McCallum to give Penticton a 2-1 lead midway through the third. Trail didn’t quit, and the hockey gods eventually smiled on the orange and black. Braedon Jones ripped a dump-in around the glass that hit the stanchion and bounced into the open net, as the Vee goalie desperately tried to get back having exited the crease to intercept the puck behind the net. The teams traded chances, but a Balson interference penalty gave the Smokies an opportunity, and Keca would make them pay, blasting a pass from Connor Collett past a sprawling Renyard with less than five minutes remaining in regulation to give the Smokies a 3-2 edge. Penticton would get it back, however, and force overtime when Minnesota Wild draft pick Lou Nanne converted a perfect Mellor pass to him in the slot, and tapping it by a helpless Todd with 2:56 left on the clock, to make it 3-3 and send it to OT. McMullen was named first star for his extra period marker and two point night, Lucchini second star and Keca third star. Todd stopped 34 of 37 shots in getting his 10th win in a Smokies uniform. Trail next plays a home-and-home starting in Penticton on Friday, and returning to the Cominco Arena on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., while Salmon Arm undertakes a three-game road trip to the coast with games against Powell River, Alberni, and Coquitlam. Trail will finish the regular season at home against the Vees on Mar. 10, while the Backs end their season on the road against Merritt and Prince George, Mar. 8-9.

Sports seattle mariners

Big Game club helps out wildlife

Bay homers in first at bat THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PEORIA, Ariz. - Jason Bay signed with the Seattle Mariners looking to resurrect a career derailed by injury and ineffectiveness. The Trail native regained health and reworked his swing in this off-season, and it’s already paying dividends. Bay hit a two-run homer in his first spring at-bat and the Mariners went on to beat the San Diego Padres 8-6 Saturday. “I tried a million things to get my swing back and to save face,” said Bay, who signed a one-year $1 million contract this off-season. “Nothing was working, and I got so far away

from where I was before that I forgot how to do it. The goal heading into this spring is to get back to doing what I’ve always done.” “When you get instant feedback like that first-inning home run, that speaks volumes that you’re on the right track,” he said. Bay redirected a 95 mph fastball from Padres starter Tyson Ross over the left-field wall. He also walked twice. A big hitter earlier in his career, Bay floundered after signing a four-year, $66 million deal with the New York Mets. The outfielder was physically hobbled and mentally drained

during his time in New York, but Seattle gave him a chance to start fresh. Bay must play his way onto the 25-man roster with a solid spring, an odd predicament the three-time All-Star doesn’t seem to mind. “I understand that there are people for a limited number of roster spots, but I’m not concerned about a competition,” Bay said. “I’m concerned about me. I want to make a good impression here, and I know I still have to make the team. I kind of like that because, if I make this team, it means I deserve it.”

Para-alpine World Championship

Rossland skier races to third medal

LA MOLINA, SPA (Feb. 25, 2013) – Rossland’s Kimberley Joines claimed her third medal and Chris Williamson gave Canada its first gold at the International Paralympic Committee Alpine World Skiing Championships on Monday. Sit-skier Joines won her second silver medal, to go with her bronze won Sunday, and Alexandra Starker, who races in the standing category, earned

her second bronze in as many days. Racing on a challenging, wind-buffed course, all three medalists sat one spot behind their finishing positions after the super-G, and dug deep during the slalom portion to climb their way up the rankings. “This was definitely one of my goals,” Williamson said of his win. “It’s always my goal when I’m in the start to charge and have the best

result, but it’s always extremely satisfying.” The gold-medal result is Williamson’s third podium in four days of racing at the world championship event in La Molina, Spain. The Toronto racer won super-G silver and downhill bronze earlier in the week. The buoyant atmosphere at the awards ceremony continued for team Canada with Joines’ silver medal. Joines was 1.74 seconds

off the pace after the first run, but battled hard in the second run to edge out Germany’s Anna Schaffelhuber and claim second place. Claudia Loesch of Austria took the win with a fast second run, adding to her superG gold from earlier in the week. “It’s pretty icy out there, so it was tough snow for me,” Joines said. “I pushed as hard as I could the first run, but I was definitely a little bit behind and it wasn’t my best skiing, so I was pretty stoked to have moved up a spot for the second run. “I just charged on the flats and managed to move up a spot. It was a pretty great day for the Canadians.”

NETFLIX

Users are not cord cutters THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Canadian Netflix users stream an average of about an hour a day, watch another half hour’s worth of content online, and catch another hour and a half of broadcast TV, suggests a study. Most Netflix customers are not so-called cord cutters - a term to describe consumers who have cancelled their cable or satellite plan in favour of other content options - according to the report by the Media Technology Monitor, based on surveys with thousands of Canadians. In fact, Netflix users were found to be more likely than other consumers to shell out for a premium TV package, even while paying $8 a month for the streaming service. MTM estimated that users were watching an average of 6.4 hours of Netflix content per week.

Ex ended relationship in a cowardly way Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

finally had enough and sent him a text ending things completely. Annie, the entire two months we were apart, I was a wreck. I still can’t stop thinking about him. I know I did the right thing by breaking it off. But sometimes, I am filled with regret, as if I wasn’t a good enough girlfriend. How can I be happy again without faking it? -- Lost in My Heart Dear Lost: This has nothing to do with your value as a girlfriend. Luke was simply not the right guy. He didn’t have the courage to break things off in an honest way and made himself repeatedly unavailable,

how to do this, and it can also require several keystrokes to get the right letters. But newer smartphones have an icon for messaging right on the screen and a keyboard that appears when you use the function, making texting simple and quick. And the parents are right -- most teens prefer it to emailing, although there is a cost involved. If you are interested in getting a new phone, please know that many companies offer tutorials to go with it. Dear Annie: The letter from “Some Talk, Please” sounded like one I’ve been writing in my head for a decade. My husband of 20 years is also great around the house and with our kids, but he prefers groping to actual conversation and can’t understand why it doesn’t turn me on. I’m sad that he feels rejected, but I work two jobs and help care for my parents. I’m too tired for sex at the drop of a hat. He also thinks

that when our teenage kids have friends over, it’s a great time to escape to the bedroom. I consider that inappropriate. Can you shed any light on this? -- A Few Words Would Help Dear Few Words: Your husband is so

focused on his own satisfaction that it apparently cuts off oxygen to his brain. You need to be very specific about what you want from him and offer “rewards” when he complies. Behavior modification can be a very useful tool.

To our Baha’i readers: Happy Ayyam-i-Ha. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net

hoping you’d take the initiative and let him go. It is natural for you to grieve the end of a relationship that you expected to last. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family, pamper yourself, and “fake it until you make it.” Time will heal this. We promise. Dear Annie: I used to keep in touch with my grandchildren via e-mail, but lately, they have not been answering my letters. Their parents told me that teenagers prefer to “text” rather than e-mail. In my technological ignorance, I thought texting was the same as e-mailing.

Dear Annie: I am a 21-year-old female, quite independent, happy and full of life. Last year I started dating “Luke,” age 26. We hit it off great, and I fell in love. But two months ago, something changed. Luke recently started a new company. One day, he randomly decided he needed a break from our relationship to focus on his business. He made me promise to stay faithful. After three weeks, we started arguing. I found it stupid that I was supposed to remain faithful while he was out partying every weekend, going to bars and clubs. He kept texting my sister, saying he didn’t want to be with me. When I’d confront him, he’d say he was only kidding. I tried hard to work this out. Two weeks ago, we planned to hang out, but Luke didn’t answer my calls. He never even bothered to cancel our plans. I

YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is a lovely day to schmooze with others, particularly partners, close friends and even members of the general public. You feel upbeat, and you want to expand your experience of life. Yay you! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Work-related travel is possible today. Look for ways to expand what you do at work. Some of you might get a raise, or at least praise. It’s all good. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a playful, fun-loving, flirtatious day. Slip away on a vacation if you can. Enjoy sports, parties, movies, playful times with children and romantic adventures. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is an excellent day to entertain at home. Invite the gang over for pizza and beer.

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 Trail Times

Discussions with female relatives will be particularly upbeat and friendly. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You’re unusually enthusiastic about life today. You’re happy to be in your shoes. This is a good day to relate to others in group situations. (Privately, you’re excited about future goals.) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Business and commerce certainly are favored today. Trust your moneymaking ideas. Dealing with foreign countries could be profitable. Don’t be afraid to think big. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today you feel warm and friendly to everyone. (This is why others are warm to you.) You are generous, giving and feel a genuine concern for the welfare of others. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might put the needs of someone else before your

own today, because you feel selfless. This comes easily to you. That’s because you see the big picture and you know what is right.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You make a great impression on others today, but do be careful that you don’t promise more than you can deliver. You’re confident; you look good; that’s enough. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) To travel anywhere will delight you today. If you can’t travel, then expand your world through study or talking to other people.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Others will be generous to you today, so keep your pockets open. This is an excellent day to discuss inheritances or how to share or divide something.

Music star meets fans Submitted photo

Some Greater Trail music fans won a special meeting with country music’s rising star Hunter Hayes last week. Hayes, who performed at the Grammy Awards earlier this month, was in Spokane on Thursday as the opening act for country superstar Carrie Underwood. Hayes’ performance included a Tweet and Meet contest where concert-goers could respond to #HunterIsWanted and list their seats and section to win the prize. The local group of fans was selected from the soldout crowd to meet the musician after the show. From left: Kelsey Perehudoff, Rachel Swanson, Hunter Hayes, Hayley Hutchison, Shaelyn Vecchio and Annie Bertrand.
