Budget does little for rural regions, says MP BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Times Staff

The new federal budget has failed people and the ailing economies in rural B.C., says the Member of Parliament representing the Greater Trail region. Alex Atamanenko, said that with the exception of a small business tax credit, the Conservative budget falls short of delivering results for people in the rural parts of the province. The federal government promised a focus on jobs but has not introduced any new measures to create meaningful employment, he said in a release, nor has there been any new money for skills training. In fact, there will be a clawback of $300 million from the $500 million the federal government had provided provinces to promote training. The money will be put into a Canada Jobs Grant by 201415. “Some years ago, this government devolved job training to the provinces,” he said. “Now, without consultation, it is taking back part of the training money for the Canada Job Grant program. This could cause some confusion as to who is responsible for what.” Atamanenko said B.C. Southern Interior constituents told him they wanted investments in front

line public services, a job creation strategy, a better transit system, improved home care for seniors and a national housing strategy. Trail native Ken Georgetti, president of the Canadian Labour Congress, said the federal government has failed to provide a culture of good skills training and, as a result, has not caught on with business and governments in Canada. He said it was disappointing only 16 per cent of federal investments for skills and jobs is new money, with the rest an extension or reallocation of existing funds. “Money has been taken out of the hands of provinces and lowskilled workers, and put into the hands of employers to do what they should have been doing already,” he said. “Money is being channelled to specific employers with no guarantee that training will meet broader labour market needs.” Atamanenko also denounced a $36 billion reduction in healthcare transfers. “It is also disappointing to see the Conservatives pushing ahead with unpopular cuts to EI that will force workers to take a 30 per cent pay cut,” he noted. “And, while the government is taking skills training away from the provinces it is providing no new money for education and training.”

TRAIL

River wall project taking shape BY CHRIS STEDILE Times Staff

The City of Trail’s River Wall Restoration project is well underway to improve the river’s shoreline. The $140,000 project includes improved viewing of the river, easier access to maintenance and cleaning of the river wall. City of Trail Public Works manager, Larry Abenante says through the use of riprap rock – large rocks, the result of demolition – donated from the Waneta Dam project, the city is reinforcing the base of the river wall.

The riprap will absorb the force of the water surging towards the wall and slow the water’s flow up the shore, reducing erosion. Hopes are to have the rocks laid before the water levels rise once again. Not only will the city be adding to the area surrounding the wall but also removing various aspects. “Part of the restoration is also to get rid of a bunch of the trees that are down there, mostly cottonwoods and poplars,” Abenante says.

Study proposed for regional fire service BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

A hot topic at local council meetings this month has been the issue of a 2013 regional fire service study. The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) is set to adopt its 2013 budget on Wednesday, which will include $40,000 for the proposed study. “The City of Rossland requested that we take a look

at the service to confirm or define ways that we might be able to be more efficient or cost effective,” said John McLean, chief administrative officer for the RDKB. The proposed 2013 annual operating budget for the regional fire service has increased by almost $300,000 since last year. In 2012, the budget was $3.6 million and this year will engulf over $3.9 million.

McLean said that although the main impetus for the study is to look at the rising costs over the last few years, the study would also examine all aspects of the fire service, including first responders and the relationship between volunteers and career staff. “We need to determine if we are doing good service to the community,” said McLean.

Equipment continues to shore up the shoreline by the Columbia River in downtown Trail.

FROM PAGE 1 The removal of these trees will clean up the shoreline and allow a small road to be built adjacent to the Old Bridge allowing easier access if maintenance is ever needed underneath, where a sewer interceptor is positioned. Also being removed, in an attempt to clean the area further, are the numerous graffiti marks strewn across the wall. Lastly, Abenante says the weep holes in the wall itself will undergo a thorough cleaning, to ensure if there is any water behind the wall, the wall will ‘weep’ and allow the water to pass through.

Castlegar

More access planned for Arrow Lakes The Castlegar News Access to the Arrow Lakes should soon be improved as contracts for work on three boat launches have been awarded and construction work has started. BC Hydro announced details of the work in a press release on Monday. At the Anderson Point launch on the Lower Arrow, road access improvements, pile driving and placement of the floating walkway are complete. \In Nakusp, the old wood trestle ramp was removed and concrete panel installation is underway. Work on the Edgewood project is progressing, and the breakwater and floating walkway placement is scheduled for the coming weeks. Columbia Power is managing the construction of the Anderson Point, Nakusp and Edgewood launches on behalf of BC Hydro. “BC Hydro is committed to

giving back to the communities in which we operate,” said Chris O’Riley, executive vice president of generation at BC Hydro. “The completion of these projects will ensure improved access to the Arrow Lakes reservoir for recreational users. “We are very pleased with the work being done by our partner, Columbia Power, on the construction of the project.” The Columbia River Water Use Plan recommended improving summer recreational boat access for the Arrow Lakes reservoir and in 2011, BC Hydro upgraded boat ramps at Fauquier and McDonald Creek Park and built a new boat ramp near Burton. In 2012, BC Hydro and Columbia Power formed a partnership for the remaining Arrow Lakes reservoir boat ramp improvement projects. Once construction is completed by Columbia Power, BC Hydro will maintain the boat ramps.

Study will review costs FROM PAGE 1 “And if there are ways we can improve the service for the amount of money that we are spending each year.” Mayor of Rossland, Greg Granstrom, said that the goal of the study from the city’s point of view is to make sure that the service does not become so costly that it would be fortuitous for a participant to with draw from the service; leaving Rossland and other communities to absorb the costs.

“I think we have a cadillac fire service,” said Greg Granstrom, mayor of Rossland. “We need to make sure that we are getting the best bang for our tax bucks.” Granstrom said that the goal of the study from the city’s point of view is to make sure that the service does not become so costly that it would be fortuitous for a participant to with draw from the service. As soon as the financial plan is adopted, request for propos-

als will be advertised, said McLean. The final report will probably go back to the east end services in the fall for review. The Kootenay Boundary Fire Rescue (KBFR) is comprised of 14 career fire fighters and 140 paid oncall fire fighters, under the direction of Terry Martin, regional fire chief. KBFR provides fire protection and prevention services to citizens in Trail, Rossland, Warfield, Montrose, Fruitvale and Areas A & B.

Revelstoke

Avalanche claims skier By Alex Cooper

Revelstoke Times Review

A 38-year-old Revelstoke man died after getting caught in an avalanche in Glacier National Park on Sunday. Revelstoke RCMP said the man was skiing in the Sifton Col area with two friends when the avalanche happened. He was testing conditions in the bowl while his partners

waited at the top when he was caught and buried in a size 2.5 avalanche. He was dug out of the snow by his partners. One stayed behind to conduct CPR while the other skied to the Rogers Pass Centre to get help. Parks Canada’s visitor safety and avalanche technicians responded by helicopter, however the victim died at the scene.

Salmo

Another win in Earth Hour Challenge Pool will get up to $4,000 in energy upgrades

The Nelson Star For the second straight year, Salmo has won FortisBC’s Earth Hour Challenge. The village collected the most pledges in the power company’s annual conservation event to earn up to $4,000 in energy upgrades for the community swimming pool. St. Andrews Anglican Church, located in Trail, was also in the running for renovations. Upon finishing sixth with six per cent of the pledges, the church will have to look elsewhere for the funds to replace their run-down doors leading in from the alleyway. FortisBC’s Nicole Bogdanovic explains they changed the rules of the competition this year, which asked residents and businesses to turn off unnecessary lights and electronics for an hour and also commit to further energy saving actions.

Previously the winner was measured based on per capita participation, which tended to give smaller communities an edge. Last year Salmo led with 102 per cent participation. (Those pledging to take part didn’t have to live in the community they supported, but participation was measured relative to its population.) This year the results were judged based on actual numbers ÑÊbut Salmo still came out on top, with more than 300 of the total 1,300 pledges. “They were by far the leader,” Bogdanovic said. “They did really well. They’re obviously a very tight community and get the message out. I think they also offered to do an early spring polar bear swim if they won.” The Salmo Valley swimming pool will receive $4,000 towards replacing its ageing, inefficient heating and lighting systems with a new tankless water heater. The change room lights will also be replaced. “We could put the money we

save towards other things, like lifeguard wages and kids’ programs,” swimming pool administrator Patty McNeil said in a news release. Last year Salmo’s victory resulted in a $5,000 energy upgrade for the library. The company says overall, participation Saturday resulted in a 5.7 megawatt drop in electricity consumption across its service area, although community-by-community breakdowns aren’t available. Individuals and businesses who participated were also entered into a draw to win up to $2,000 and $4,000 respectively in energy upgrades. This year was the first time businesses could pledge and more than 200 did. The winning business, Copper Creek Country Store of Greenwood, committed to encouraging staff and customers to pledge to support Earth Hour. Owner Hardy Skott will receive an energy assessment to determine how best to apply the $4,000 prize.

Man dies after ATV crash

The Nanaimo News Bulletin A 48-year-old Nanaimo man died while off-roading with friends on the weekend. The mishap occurred Saturday night while he was riding quads with two friends on the B.C. Hydro service road near Nanaimo Lakes and South Forks roads. Police report the man raced ahead and was briefly out of sight before one of his friends saw headlights shining up into some trees and found the victim lying in some bushes and his ATV in a ditch. His friends called 911. Nanaimo RCMP, Nanaimo Fire Rescue and B.C. Ambulance attended and rushed him to Nanaimo Regional General Hospital where he died of

his injuries. It initially appeared the victim had lost control of the machine and collided with trees, but when friends returned to the crash site Sunday they found a dead deer nearby. Police now believe the victim was unable to avoid striking the animal and the collision propelled the ATV into the air and into the trees. The victim was wearing a helmet. His family have been notified. Police have not released the victim’s name and the case has been turned over the B.C. Coroner’s Service. This is the second incident in two weeks in which a Nanaimo resident has died in an off-road accident.

Transportation Minister Mary Polak says party bus operators in B.C. have been warned they must obey laws that ban liquor consumption by their passengers or face costly licence suspensions. But at the same time Polak says the province is reviewing the current regulations to check whether they still make sense. A commercial vehicle like a limousine or a bus is considered a public place in B.C. so boozy revellers on board are drinking in public contrary to the Liquor Control and Licensing Act and can be subject to a $230 fine and liquor pour-outs. Any drinking in a moving vehicle is also against the Motor Vehicle Act and it’s also a violation of the operators’ licences under the Passenger Transportation Act. “I have made it very clear to the operators I have absolutely no difficulty pulling their licences if it’s found any one of them is not in compliance,” Polak said. That message was delivered to operators at a meeting Thursday by officials of B.C.’s Passenger Transportation Board. It comes several weeks after 16-year-old Ernest Azoadam died in Surrey after riding on a party bus where alcohol was plentiful despite operator claims it doesn’t permit alcohol or drugs. The stretch SUVs or buses are often outfitted with nightclub lighting and may act as rolling parties, particularly for those under age, rather

than deluxe transportation to an actual event. “It’s kind of tough to swallow that [operators] are saying ‘Look it’s not our fault’ when their advertisements in many cases imply alcohol is going to be part of the celebration these folks are going to be paying for,” Polak said. “It’s very troubling.” She said her immediate concern is underage drinking by teens and the associated risks, particularly as grad celebration season approaches. The party bus business isn’t a big industry, but Polak said it’s growing and it’s time for a broader review of how the laws apply and whether changes are justified. Legalization of alcohol use on limousines or party buses ÐÊstrictly for adults ÐÊis one option that might be considered, she said. “Is there any benefit?” she asked. “I don’t know the answer but it’s a question worth asking.” Asked whether the province’s shift to tougher roadside administrative penalties for impaired driving, rather than criminal prosecution, may have fueled the industry, Polak said she doesn’t think so. “This industry has been growing prior to the 0.05 [blood-alcohol level] legislation and the changes that went with that,” she said. “I think it’s more a reflection of society’s ideals arround alcohol and their own decisions on what’s appropriate and what isn’t.” A provincial review of other jurisdictions found no consistent or obvious approach to regulating party buses elsewhere.

Penticton

Hospital campaigners bulk up war chest By Joe Fries

Penticton Western News

A war chest of $40,000 should be available for twin campaigns aimed at sustaining public support for a new Penticton hospital tower. Local politicians have agreed to cover half that amount through the Okanagan Similkameen Regional Hospital District, while doctors are expected to match the taxpayers’ contribution. Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino, who chairs the hospital district’s board, said at a

meeting Thursday that despite Premier Christy Clark’s verbal support for the tower project, it’s important to have cash available to keep pressure on B.C. government decision-makers. “This is for advertising expenses to keep their feet to the fire. In other words, if the public stops rallying, if the medical community stops rallying and if we as politicians stop rallying, we’re afraid that they might just sit there and do nothing,” Perrino said. “That is our fear.”

Georgetti sees ‘turning point’ for labour movement

First Nations group completes 1,600-km trek THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Wrapped in ceremonial white, hooded jackets, nearly 300 young people have arrived in Ottawa to end marathon winter trek to rekindle the Idle No More movement. Hundreds more supporters filled the steps beneath the Peace Tower to greet the walkers after their final march to Parliament Hill from nearby Victoria Island on the Ottawa River. The long walk began

when David Kawapit Jr., a 17-year-old from the isolated community of Whapmagoostui in northern Quebec, decided to trudge the 1,600 kilometres to Ottawa in support of better conditions for aboriginal people. Since he and a half-dozen supporters departed in midJanuary on snowshoes and towing their supplies, their ranks slowly swelled to several hundred people. Organizers said about 270 walkers

completed the journey to Ottawa. Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt agreed to meet some of the young people who completed the trek, although it was unclear when that meeting would take place. Valcourt said he wanted to meet the marchers, listen to them, and tell them what the Harper government is doing to better their living conditions.

Ontario

Police investigate hockey brawl THE CANADIAN PRESS TWEED, Ont. An online video that captured a brawl in the stands of a minor hockey game in a small Ontario community has caught the attention of provincial police. The video posted on YouTube Sunday afternoon shows adults taunting each other until the crowd erupts in a massive fist fight. At one point, a man who appears to be pulling another from the melee is dragged backwards until he falls to the ground while a woman - possibly the videographer - screams. The caption says the footage was shot Saturday at the Bantam C hockey finals in Tweed, about halfway between

Ottawa and Toronto. OPP Const. Alana Deubel says police are aware of the video and are reviewing it to determine whether charges are war-

ranted. The clip had been viewed more than 13,000 times by midday Monday and was being shared on social media.

Granting Opportunity The LeRoi Foundation of Greater Trail is pleased to announce another granting cycle. The Foundation, having invested its gifts prudently, has a limited number of grants to award to other registered charities for projects that benefit the communities of Fruitvale, Montrose, Rossland, Trail, Warfield, and Areas A & B. The LeRoi Community Foundation Grants Program supports: • Arts and Culture • Education • Environment • Health and Welfare • Sports and Recreation The Foundation invites interested registered charities to visit its website for eligibility criteria and a “Letter of Interest” form. The deadline is midnight, April 5th, 2013. www.leroifoundation.com

“I’m going to be listening,” he said. “This is about informing myself about their concerns.” In the House of Commons, New Democrat Romeo Saganash said First Nations need something concrete. “It’s too late for broken promises and paternalism,” he said. Valcourt said the government wants to help First Nations developed the skills and expertise they need to make the most of their natural resources.

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - The head of a major labour group says changes brought in by the Harper government dealing with working Canadians is galvanizing union opposition to the Conservatives. Government decisions such as raising the onset of old age security and lowering the cost of temporary foreign workers are not only making things harder for workers but also spurring the labour movement into action, says Canadian Labour Congress President Ken Georgetti. “This is a turning point,” he said in an interview Saturday. Georgetti, a native of Trail, said a weekend “political action” conference in Toronto that the CLC put together brought together union leaders to talk about the problems facing labour. He hopes it will lead to new campaigns to protect the rights of not just organized labour but all of the country’s workforce. “What we’re doing here is saying (that)

going forward we’re going to be a lot stronger and a lot more aggressive in asserting and maintaining our rights and trying to achieve the same rights for all working people in Canada,” Georgetti added. Georgetti said that since Stephen Harper’s Conservatives won a majority nearly two years ago there has been a big shift in how the federal government treats workers. “I think there’s something now. Since this government’s had a majority they’ve been

systematically taking rights away from working people.” “This government has said very clearly that the rights of workers are secondary to the interests of business,” he said. The labour group hopes the gathering will lead to fresh pressure on hot-button workforce issues such as employment insurance rule changes. NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair said his party is the only one organized labour can count on to defend workers’ rights.

Ottawa takes the lead on skills training

T

he B.C. election campaign that’s about to get underway will feature lots of talk about skills training. It will be everyone’s top priority, along with a dozen other top priorities. But since elections are no time to deal with serious issues, don’t expect much frank discussion about ways to redirect our increasingly soft, urban society toward useful work. Somebody might be offended. The B.C. Liberals see lots of skilled, technical jobs on the horizon, but they cut their skills training budget and many of their MLAs are also looking at a career change. The B.C. school system, like that of other provinces, still pushes kids to university programs that lead to coffee-serving jobs and the need for another round of training. This has been going on since the 1970s, and it’s not confined to B.C. The B.C. NDP appar-

ently expects to coast to victory with the same empty rhetoric about “income inequality” and student debt that they’ve been using for years. Their only discernible intent is to return control over how many apprentices can be on a job site to industrial unions, which severely restrict it, squeezing out small business. This team’s ideas are mostly left over from the last industrial revolution. Fortunately there is a mid-term federal government that has acted. Last week’s federal budget launches new programs that the next B.C. government will have to go along with. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government didn’t claw back post-secondary funds from B.C. and other inept provinces, as some had feared. What we got from Ottawa was social engineering, Conservative style. The centrepiece is the

TOM

FLETCHER B.C. Views

“Canada Job Grant,” a $5,000 grant to employers willing to match it and train an unemployed person. To qualify, the province has to match as well, for a total $15,000 commitment to one worker who will have a job to go to. Delta-Richmond East MP Kerry-Lynne Findlay was one of the Conservatives out to promote the budget. She said when the Canada Job Grant is fully rolled out, it will fund training for 130,000 people a year. Some will

be young people, but there will also be older workers whose skills need upgrading. “If they’re willing to look at the jobs that are available and understand that that’s their best shot at making a living and being able to support their own families some day, we want to be sure that the opportunities are there,” Findlay said. The difference is that it has to be what an employer needs, not what the student might prefer. It’s a public-private partnership, as we have seen with modern public works. Findlay acknowledged that even with a big push on training, Canada will still need to import foreign workers. In B.C. we are bracing for an unprecedented resource boom, much of it in the B.C. Interior and north. That’s one reason for a $241 million increase over five years to the federal Income Assistance

Program for aboriginal reserves. The new money is available only if the community leadership commits to a mandatory training component. They didn’t call it Idle No More, but that’s the gist of it. Of course, no worker or province or band council is required to participate. They have the option to leave the federal money on the table. But the NDP should note that the Canada Job Grant applies to union-run apprenticeship schools as well as those in community colleges and technical institutes. Saying no isn’t much of a choice. Whatever grand promises the B.C. Liberals and NDP have written into their yet-to-be-released election platforms, they will need to find the money to participate.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Kudos to local team at provincials I had opportunity to attend the Pee Wee Tier 2 BC Provincial hockey championship held in Salmon Arm during spring break. Our Greater Trail representative despite a 0-3 record performed well. Two of their losses were heartbreakers losing by one goal in the final minutes. The competition at the Tier

2 level is elite and this team finished the season with a winning record against this competition. The skill level of today’s young players is generally accepted to be considerably improved over past generations, however one aspect that hasn’t kept pace with this progress and possibly regressed is

their work ethic/compete ability. The coaching staff inspired this team to outwork/outcompete their opposition game in and game out all season. This team,players,coaches and manager should be very proud of their season. Norm Dennis Fruitvale

MILKE

Just like your skin, if not properly blocked, ultraviolet rays can damage your artwork, flooring and furniture. Silhouette window shadings, with the Signature S-VaneTM, provide superior UV protection compared to other window covering products - up to 88% with the vanes tilted open. Call us today to see Life in a Whole New Light.

That compares to the category of mining, oil and gas extraction, at less than a billion dollars last year. Favouritism aside – and neither sector should be favoured – such accelerated write-offs are at least not a transfer of tax dollars, unlike crony capitalism which is a political act that promotes the illusion of “doing something” for the economy but at the expense of taxpayers in general. Budget 2013 makes the usual defences for crony capitalism: jobs are created with the help of a micromanaging federal government. In his budget speech, the Finance Minister asserted the Conservative budget reflects a belief of Canadians that “their government will be a benign and silent partner in their enterprise.” I have three questions for the finance minister: How do you know Canadians want you to use their tax dollars to be a “silent partner” with business? Why must government be a “partner” in any business enterprise through loans and grants? Why not just let corporations compete without dragging taxpayers into the ring? Economists are clear that crony capitalism fails because it takes money from taxpayers and productive businesses and, in the case of businesses, transfers it to businesses in the same sector at the expense of the “giving” business. The official title of Budget 2013 was “Jobs, Growth, and Long-Term Prosperity.” It should have been “Grants, Subsidies and Eternal Business Handouts.” It should also have had a price tag attached for taxpayers on the front cover: $6.4 billion in new corporate welfare.

PEOPLE

OBITUARIES BEFUS (BITZ), ESTHER LYDIA — October 23, 1914 - March 15, 2013 Our dear “little Mom” has gone home to be with Jesus. Esther was predeceased by Adam, her husband of 58 years; her daughter Sharon Louise Graw;  her infant great-granddaughter, Amanda Janette Oke; her parents Christina (Neumueller) and Jacob Bitz; her brothers Jacob Bitz, Philip Bitz, Johnny Bitz, Ray Bitz, Albert Bitz and Art Bitz; her sisters, Annie Hertz, Minnie Schlaht,  Bertha Hahn and Martha Job. She is survived by her  daughter Carol Joan Dieterman (Befus); her son-in-law Koert Dieterman (who she loved like a son); her brother Gust Bitz; her grandchildren, Barb Oke (Terry), Paul Dieterman, Barry Graw, Denise Kamieniecki (Wayne),  Keith Graw (Arlene); her great- grandchildren, Ashley Carleton (Steve), Courtney Oke,   Kalinda,  Slayde and Vegas Kamieniecki and Koert Graw. Esther was born in South-Western Saskatchewan, and grew up on the family farm at Sandy Point, Saskatchewan.  As a young girl she worked in Carbon, Alberta and then moved to Calgary where she met her husband, Adam.  They married April 4, 1942.  They raised their daughters there and after 58 years together, after the passing of her husband,  she moved to Fruitvale, B.C., to be with her daughter and son-in-law.  Her final years were spent at Columbia View Lodge, Trail, B.C. Through her married years she was a housewife.  Her garden and flower beds were her pride and joy and the envy of the neighborhood.  She also loved baking and the proper recipe of her famous chocolate cake has yet to be discovered.  She loved her grandchildren and great- grandchildren dearly and had a great relationship with all of them.  After Adam’s retirement they enjoyed travelling by bus tours in the U.S. and Canada and enjoyed seeing Disneyland, Vegas, Reno, Hawaii and Alaska. Esther will be cremated and a Memorial Service will be held at the Trail Alliance Church, 3365 Laburnum Drive on Wednesday, March 27 at 1:00 pm with Reverend Ken Siemens officiating. Following that, she will be taken to Calgary to be buried next to her husband at the Queens Park Cemetery following a service in the chapel there. Jordan Wren of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. E. McCoid for her loving and compassionate care and to the staff at Columbia View Lodge for making Mom’s last home a comfortable  and loving one. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Esther’s name would be appreciated to either the Recreation Dept. of CVL at 2920 Laburnum Drive, Trail, V1R 4N2 or to the Trail  Hospice Society  at Suite 7, Kiro Wellness Centre, 1500 Columbia Avenue, Trail, V1R 1J9.

ANTHONY LEWIS

Journalist was a Pulitzer Prize winner THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON - Two-time Pulitzer winner Anthony Lewis, whose New York Times column championed liberal causes for three decades, died Monday. He was 85. Lewis was married to Margaret Marshall, former chief justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. She retired in 2010 to spend more time with her husband after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. A court spokeswoman confirmed his death. Lewis worked for 32 years as a columnist for The New York Times, taking up causes such as free speech, human rights and constitutional law.

His Pulitzers came during his years as a reporter. He won his first in 1955 for defending a Navy civilian falsely accused of being a communist sympathizer, and he won again in 1963 for reporting on the Supreme Court. His acclaimed 1964 book, “Gideon’s Trumpet,” told the story of a petty thief whose fight for legal representation led to a landmark Supreme Court decision. Lewis saw himself as a defender of decency, respect for law and reason against a tide of religious fundamentalism and extreme nationalism. His columns railed against the Vietnam

War, Watergate, apartheid in South Africa and Israeli settlements in the West Bank and Gaza. He wrote his final “Abroad at Home” column for The Times on Dec. 15, 2001, warning against the U.S. fearfully surrendering its civil liberties in the wake of the terrorist attacks three months earlier. “The hard question is whether our commitment to law will survive the new sense of vulnerability that is with us all after Sept. 11,” he wrote. “It is easy to tolerate dissent when we feel safe.” Gail Collins, then the editorial page editor of the

Times, said when Lewis resigned that he had been an inspiration. “His fearlessness, the clarity of his writing and his commitment to human rights and civil liberties are legendary,” Collins said. “And he’s also one of the kindest people I have ever known.” “Gideon’s Trumpet” became a legal classic, telling the story of Clarence Earl Gideon, whose case resulted in the creation of the public defender systems across the nation. In Gideon v. Wainwright, the high court ruled that criminal defendants are entitled to a lawyer even if they cannot afford one.

JOE WEIDER

Bodybuilding guru helped promote Schwarzenegger THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Joe Weider, a legendary figure in bodybuilding who helped popularize the sport worldwide and played a key role in introducing a charismatic young weightlifter named Arnold Schwarzenegger to the world, died Saturday. Weider, who was born in Montreal, was 93. Weider’s publicist, Charlotte Parker, told The Associated Press that the bodybuilder, publisher and promoter died of heart failure at his home in Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley. “I knew about Joe Weider

long before I met him,” Schwarzenegger, who tweeted the news of his old friend’s death, said in a lengthy statement posted on his website. “He was the godfather of fitness who told all of us to be somebody with a body. He taught us that through hard work and training we could all be champions.” A bodybuilder with an impressive physique himself, Weider became better known in later years as a behind-thescenes guru to the sport. He popularized bodybuilding and spread the message of health and fitness worldwide with such publications

as Muscle & Fitness, Flex and Shape. Schwarzenegger himself is the executive editor of Muscle & Fitness and Flex. He created one of bodybuilding’s pre-eminent events, the Mr. Olympia competition, in 1965, adding to it the Ms. Olympia contest in 1980. He also relentlessly promoted Schwarzenegger, who won the Mr. Olympia title a then-record seven times. “Every sport needs a hero, and I knew that Arnold was the right man,” he said. Weider brought Schwarzenegger to the United States early in his

career, where he helped train the future governor of California as well as aided him in getting into business. Schwarzenegger also said Weider helped land him his first movie role, in the forgettable film “Hercules in New York,” by passing off the Austrian-born weightlifter to the producers as a German Shakespearean actor. “Joe didn’t just inspire my earliest dreams; he made them come true the day he invited me to move to America to pursue my bodybuilding career,” the actor said in his statement. “I will never forget his generosity.”

Amazing Race

Show issues apology

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - The national commander of the American Legion says he accepts CBS’ apology for a passage on “The Amazing Race.” The segment aired March 17 and angered many veterans, particularly those who served in the Vietnam War. As part of its scavenger hunt game, contestants on the CBS show had to visit the site in Hanoi, which Vietnamese authorities turned into a memorial. Before this Sunday’s edition of “The Amazing Race,” host Phil Keoghan read a statement apologizing to veterans and families who may have been offended.

Dave Cort brought six-month old son, Hunter, to meet the Easter bunny for his first time. Even the tiniest tots were ready to fill baskets with chocolate treats that were hidden in the grassy field behind the hall.

Over 120 skiers hit the slopes as Red Mountain hosted the U16 Slalom and Giant Slalom provincials last week.

Patterson leads Red Racers Perfect conditions at Red welcome B.C.’s best racers BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

Red Mountain hosted the U-16 Slalom and Giant Slalom provincials this week with some good results from local skiers. Red Mountain Racer Soleil Patterson was consistent and fast, finishing in sixth place in three of her four races as over 120 skiers hit the Face and Back Trail runs of Red Mountain for the technical component of the B.C. U16 championship from Thursday to Sunday. “It was a challenging field, with a top-notch race courses,” said RMR coach Phil Patterson. “It’s tough to be consistent on that hard slope. We had some finishes, some DNFs, but overall the three girls were very happy.” The 14-year-old Soleil was the top finisher for her year, 1998, in the three races she completed, competing against skiers that, for the most part, are a year older. “She was satisfied (with her results), there’s always room for improvement but if you look at it - the U16 race - 14-15-year-olds born in ‘97 or ‘98 she did accomplish first in I believe ahead of all the ‘98s,” added Patterson. Arina Rora and Leine Groeger also competed for the Red Mountain Racers in four events over four days with each race, Giant Slalom or Slalom, a combined time of two runs. The blue-bird skies and hard-packed snow made it ideal conditions for racing on the technical course. Meg Cumming of Apex won the GS Thursday, with Grouse Mountain’s Antonia Wearmouth placing second, and Tyra Collombin from Fernie

third. RMR’s Groeger also finished well with a 15th placing. Ryley Seger of Whistler won the U16 boys slalom on Thursday, with teammate Max Peiffer placing second and Alex Roehrig of Big White third. In Friday’s Giant Slalom, Mikayla Martin of Whistler led the way, followed by Stafanie Fleckenstein also from Whistler, and Courtney Hoffos in third. Soleil placed sixth, Groeger 22nd, and Rora came 29th In the men’s slalom, Whistler took seven of the top-10 placings. Alexander Cameron led the Whistler onslaught with Max Kirshenblatt in second and Revelstoke’s Mitch Smith sneaking in for third. On Saturday the U16 female’s skied slalom on Red’s Face while the male counterpart did the GS. It was Wearmouth’s turn to take gold with a combined time of 1:29:47 nipping Collombin by half a second. Hoffos took third for the second day in a row. Patterson was the top Red Mountain Racer in sixth, with Groeger in 26th. James Crawford of Whistler won the GS clocking in a two-run total of 1:32.58, followed by Big White’s Ryan Moffat in second, and Whistler skier Cooper Yates third. Wearmouth again captured first in the U16 female Sunday’s Slalom nipping Fleckenstein by a mere 4/100th of a second with a combined time of 1:40.22, while Cumming placed third and Patterson raced to sixth and was once again the fastest ‘98 racer. The Red Mountain Racers have a busy schedule in the next month with the U14 provincials at Silver Star in Vernon this weekend, followed by the Whistler Cup Apr. 5-8, and the Kootenay zone finals in Fernie Apr. 13-14.

Although they reached No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 and earned a top seed in the tournament, the Zags were bounced 76-70 in the round of 32 on Saturday by Wichita State. Now attention turns to whether Canadian star centre Kelly Olynyk will return for his senior season. Gonzaga (32-3) became just the fifth top seed to lose in the round of 32 since the NCAA expanded to 64 teams in 1985, and that gave fuel to critics who contended this team was overrated after playing a relatively lightweight schedule. But players and coaches insisted that the season will not be defined by one game in which

Wichita State buried the Bulldogs under 14-of28 shooting from three-point range. “For five and a half months it was unbelievable,” coach Mark Few told reporters after Saturday’s game. “A hell of a ride. That’s the danger of this tournament. It’s a couple-week deal. But nobody was having more fun than us for five and a half months.” Few, who has the highest winning percentage (.800) of any active coach with at least five years’ experience, has no doubt about this team’s legacy. These Zags are “the greatest team in the history of basketball at our school,” he said. Olynyk told reporters that Wichita State was just one game out of 35 the Zags played this season. “I don’t think the loss is anything above or beyond that,” Olynyk said. “But the record, the 32 wins, being ranked No. 1 and a No. 1 seed, those don’t get erased just because you lost. “Those achievements are still going to be there,” Olynyk said. “It’s not like they don’t matter because we lost in the tournament.” A major question now is whether the sevenfoot Olynyk, from Kamloops, will be there next season. The junior blossomed from bench warmer to potential All-American this season. He scored 26 points and grabbed nine rebounds in the loss to Wichita, and has been mentioned as a possible first-round draft pick. Olynyk, who has already earned his college degree, has deferred all questions about his future until after the season.

Birchbank Golf is getting ready for the 2013 Golf Season The Birchbank Driving Range and 18 Hole Golf Course

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS ORLANDO, Fla. - Tiger Woods is back to No. 1 in the world with a game that looks as good as ever. Woods tied a PGA Tour record Monday by winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the eighth time, and this one had some extra significance. It returned him to the top of the world ranking for the first time since the final week of October 2010, the longest spell of his career. Woods never let anyone closer than two shots in the final round at Bay Hill that was delayed one day by storms. With a conservative bogey he could afford on the last hole, he closed with a 2-under 70 for a two-shot win over Justin Rose. Next up is the Masters, where Woods will try to end his five-year drought in the majors. Woods fell as low as No. 58 in the world as he coped with a crisis in his personal life and injuries to his left leg. One week after he announced he was dating Olympic ski champion Lindsey Vonn, Woods celebrated his third win of the season, and his sixth going back to Bay Hill a year ago. “It’s a byproduct of hard work, patience and getting back to winning golf tournaments,” Woods said. Vonn tweeted moments after his win, “Number 1 !!!!!!!!!!!!!” Like so many other wins, this one was never really close. Rickie Fowler pulled to within two shots with a 25-foot birdie putt

on the 14th hole, but after he and Woods made bogey on the 15th, Fowler went at the flag on the par-5 16th and came up a few yards short and into the water. Fowler put another ball into the water and made triple bogey. Woods played it safe on the 18th, and nearly holed a 75-foot par putt that even drew a big smile from the tournament host. He walked off the green waving his putter over his head to acknowledge the fans who had seen this act before. Woods tied the tour record of eight wins in a single tournament. Sam Snead won the Greater Greensboro Open eight times from 1938 to 1965 at two golf courses. Woods tied his record for most wins at a single golf course, having also won eight times at Torrey Pines, including a U.S. Open. “I don’t really see anybody touching it for a long time,” Palmer said as Woods was making his way up the 18th fairway. “I had the opportunity to win a tournament five times, and I knew how difficult that was.” Rose, who played the first two rounds with Woods, closed with a 70 to finish alone in second. Fowler had to settle for a 73 and a tie for third with Mark Wilson (71), Keegan Bradley (71) and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano (72). Already with three wins this year, Woods is closing in on another Snead record - 82 career wins. Woods won for the 77th time on tour. Rory McIlroy had been No. 1 since he won the PGA Championship last August.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Jay Leno is keeping up a comedy assault on his NBC bosses even after being treated to a make-nice dinner. During his monologue last Friday, the “Tonight Show” host asked his Burbank studio audience if they’d heard about his “alleged feud” with NBC. Leno started taking on-air potshots at the network this month amid reports that the network plans to replace him at “Tonight” with Jimmy Fallon. According to a NBC transcript from Friday’s taping, Leno said that he had dinner Thursday with a “bunch of NBC executives” who offered to make things up to him: He and his wife are going on an all-expenses paid Carnival Cruise, he joked. In February, passengers endured five nightmarish days on a crippled Carnival Cruise ship in the Gulf of Mexico. In another wisecrack, Leno cited news reports of a Canadian man who had a knife pulled from his back after three years. Sniped Leno: “He must have worked at NBC, too.” NBC confirmed last week it’s creating a new studio for Fallon in New York, where he hosts “Late Night.” But the network did not comment on a report that the digs at its Rockefeller Plaza headquarters may become home to a transplanted, Fallon-hosted “Tonight.” This isn’t the first time the “Tonight” stage has been used for a workplace dispute. In 2010, when Conan O’Brien briefly took over as “Tonight” host and Leno was moved to primetime at NBC, the two traded on-air barbs. Although late-night hosts are known for needling their network bosses, the timing of Leno’s latest jabs seemed to make NBC’s executives particularly uncomfortable and they asked him to stop. They don’t want a repeat of the publicly messy turnover of just three years ago. The 62-year-old Leno’s current contract expires next year. For NBC, the 38-year-old Fallon represents a bid to launch a next-generation host for “Tonight” - although Leno has kept the show No. 1 in the ratings despite a challenge from Jimmy Kimmel’s ABC show, which was moved back an hour to compete with it.

Caveman comedy MONday & Movies comes in first MONDAY EVENING

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - The caveman comedy “The Croods” left an indelible mark on the wall, opening at No. 1 with $44.7 million, according to Sunday studio estimates. The 3-D adventure from DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox features a voice cast including Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Catherine Keener. They play a prehistoric family encountering danger and strange new creatures when they’re forced to find a new cave. Opening strongly in second place with $30.5 million was “Olympus Has Fallen,” an action thriller from “Training Day” director Antoine Fuqua in which North Korean terrorists take over the White House. Gerard Butler, as a secret service agent, leads an all-star cast that includes Aaron Eckhart as the president, Morgan Freeman and Angela Bassett. “The Croods” has now made $108 million worldwide, also opening this weekend in Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany and Spain. In the United States, it’s the only game in town as far as animated films for the whole family, and it will continue to be so as kids head out of school for spring break over the next couple of weeks. Chris Aronson, president of domestic distribution for 20th Century Fox, said “The Croods” had a stronger opening than the $40 million the studio had projected. But this weekend’s haul is down 34 per cent from the same weekend a year ago, when the juggernaut of “The Hunger Games” debuted. It made a whopping $152.5 million in its opening, which is more than all the films in theatres combined will have made this weekend. Among the other new films this weekend, the Tina Fey-Paul Rudd college comedy “Admission” from Focus Features opened in fifth place with just $6.4 million. But the buzzed-about “Spring Breakers” from A24 Films, featuring Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens as hard-partying college girls, did well in its first nationwide expansion. It made $5 million on 1,104 screens for a total of $5.4 million over the past two weeks. Nothing really huge is on the horizon to give the box office a boost until “Iron Man 3” kicks off the summer movie season on May 3.

Husband must recognize family dynamic Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

about him? -- Beth in Baltimore Dear Beth: We think this is the version of your husband that is most familiar to him. When he is around his family, he reverts to type. It doesn’t mean he can’t behave differently if he is motivated enough, but he has to recognize the family dynamic and assert himself. It may require spending less time around his relatives, and he may be unwilling to do that. The real question is whether he likes being the guy he is now or wants to be the man you married. Talk to him about it, and if necessary, get counseling.

snacks can transmit the germs on their hands to the next person. (So can a frequently handled serving piece.) You can ask your guests to please use the serving pieces because it’s cold and flu season, etc., but some folks will pay no attention. Another option is to serve snacks that do not require that your guests reach into the same receptacle. Dear Annie: I started to cry when I read the letter from “Heartbroken in New York,” whose husband drank. I made the choice to end my marriage of 21 years because I could no longer take the Jekyll and Hyde man I was married to. Nothing I did was “right.” I was “boring and unspontaneous.” The truth was, I was being sensible. He would drink, decide I was dull and then leave to go to a bar. Many of our fights were because I hid the car keys from him.

Eventually, he stopped coming home and went directly to the bar. I finally asked him to leave and not return unless he agreed to counseling. It was then that he admitted he is gay. I was relieved. I thought he would be happier now that he

was being honest. But he is the same mean jerk to his partner, and he is still drinking. I now wish I had left him years before. I did an injustice to my kids by exposing them to his verbal abuse for so long. It’s better to be alone than to have

someone who treats you like this. -- The Grass Is Greener 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.

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

Annie’s

Dear Annie: When company comes and snacks are put out, I always include a small spoon so that treats like candy and nuts can be removed without a person touching the entire contents. But many guests don’t get the point. One person came in saying he had been suffering from the flu and was still feeling under the weather, so we should keep our distance. He then proceeded to pick through the nut bowl, even though there was a ladle in it. I threw the rest of the nuts in the trash and hoped other guests hadn’t been contaminated. Please remind people that their hands don’t belong in a shared bowl unless they’ve just scrubbed for surgery. Thanks. -Staying Healthy Dear Healthy: Many people, sick or well, don’t consider that sticking their fingers into a shared bowl of

Dear Annie: When I married three years ago, my hubby and I were best friends. Then his mother moved to town, and everything went downhill. My in-laws disrespected and trashed my rental home. I was hurt that they would do this, because I was extremely nice and financially generous to them. Ever since, she has been working to turn everyone against me, including my husband. If he doesn’t do what she wants, she makes him feel guilty. She has put so many nasty ideas into his head that he has turned into a different person. It’s not only her. His entire family is selfish, uneducated and manipulative, and they have a very “macho” mentality. I don’t much care for this new version of the man I married. Do I give him time and hope he changes back? Or is this simply who he was all along and I was wrong

YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, March 27, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The Full Moon today is the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year. This is why relationships with partners and close friends are stressed. Patience. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Job-related matters and relationships with co-workers might be tense because of the Full Moon energy today. Since this is a very temporary thing, why not cut others some slack? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Parents must be patient with children today, and romantic partners must be patient with each other. Sports will be competitive and cutthroat because of the strong Full Moon energy. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You feel pulled between the demands of home versus the demands of career and your external world. Despite the

importance of home and family, you cannot ignore your job today. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a mildly accidentprone day for you because of the Full Moon energy. Be careful of distractions and heightened emotional reactions to others. Keep your head down and your powder dry. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Avoid arguments about money and possessions, because things quickly could get out of hand due to today’s Full Moon energy. Wait a day or two to discuss these matters. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place, which is why relations with others might be a bit strained. Easy does it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Something behind the scenes makes you vaguely uneasy today. Don’t worry; it’s

just the Full Moon energy. Guard against knee-jerk reactions to others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) When dealing with groups, especially children, be patient. Sports accidents might occur now because of the aggression accompanying this Full Moon day. (Lighten up.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be patient with family members today, because everyone

is inclined to be overly emotional. Today is the Full Moon, and even the family dog will react to it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Pay attention to everything you say and do today, because distractions and anger could create an accident-prone situation. Today’s Full Moon heightens your responses to everything.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Be extra-careful with all your financial dealings, including shopping. Avoid rash responses to others, even if you feel emotional about something. (It’s easy to go overboard.) YOU BORN TODAY You are realistic, yet you are also an intellectual explorer. You constantly seek better ways to live your life. Many of you are attracted to the sciences or a particular technology.

Group calls for ban on Elk Valley coal mining

By Barry Coulter

Cranbrook Townsman

A U.S. study released earlier this month has found that high levels of selenium have leached into the Elk River from the region’s open pit coal mines. An environmental group coalition is calling for a moratorium on new coal mining in the Elk Valley. Dr. Ric Hauer of the Flathead Lake Biological Station of the University of Montana issued a March 2 study comparing water quality in the Elk and neighbouring Flathead River Basins. Commissioned by Glacier National Park, the study found nitrogen levels at 1,000 times the background rate, sulphate levels at 40-50 times the background rate, and selenium levels at 7-10 times background rate. A press release from the Sierra Club of B.C. said the researchers tested above and below mines “and used the pristine water quality of the nearby Flathead River to determine background levels and ascertain what aquatic life would normally be present in the Elk River were it not so polluted.” “The science is clear: selenium from the mines has polluted the river to levels known to be dangerous to fish,” said John Bergenske, Executive Director of the East Kootenay environmental group Wildsight. “The selenium bio-accumulates and could lead to fish population collapse because it affects reproductive organs in fish. Eating them could also affect human health. “This should be of great concern to both Environment Canada and the U.S. EPA, as the Elk is a tributary to the Kootenai River and Lake Koocanusa, which flows into the U.S.A. in western Montana.” Terry Lake, Minister of Environment, said the province is working on a “valley-wide solution,” in consultation with the other parties involved.

“We’ve known this is a challenge for some time now,” Lake said. “We’ll all been sharing information, and what we’ve got is a hundred years of mining that has created a challenge — in particular with (selenium), which in the past we didn’t have the technology to measure. “We understand the concerns of the Americans, and we need to take a valleywide approach to this problem. But if we were to shut down mining entirely, then we’d have a problem.” Lake said the province had been in consultation with industry and federal and U.S. government counterparts, and a two-point solution is being con-

sidered. The first, Lake said, is to divert water away from the waste rock, so that the acids and metals don’t leech into the water. The second is to treat the water — to create treatment plants, for example, to remove metals like selenium from the water. He added that Teck has been very cooperative in this matter. Teck Resources, which operates five coal mines in the Elk Valley, issued a statement to the Townsman Thursday. “At Teck, we take environmental issues very seriously,” it reads. “That is why we are taking action through our Valleywide Selenium Management Action

MARKET QUOTATIONS MARKET QUOTATIONS

Plan, which is one of the largest water quality management programs of its kind in the world. The plan outlines significant measures, based on extensive scientific research, to protect aquatic health while supporting sustainable mining activities in the Elk Valley. Teck also referred to the water diversion and treatment strategies. “Over the next five years, Teck will invest up to $600 million on the installation of water diversion and treatment facilities, investments in research and development to improve selenium management, and ongoing aquatic monitoring.
