While the Rossland pool opened June 1 and has already had school swimming lessons in the mornings this week, the area’s only other outdoor swimming facility in Warfield is still sitting empty due to delays in the seasonal repairs. “We’re just doing the last minute repair work and, unfortunately, the work has to be done at the proper temperature and the painting can’t be done in the rain, that’s held us up in the last while with the colder, wet weather,” said Teresa Mandoli, Warfield recreation coordinator, “We hope to be opening by mid-June, weather permitting.” The Rossland pool has been able to take advantage of the sunnier weather of the last few days and begun offering public and family swimming, as well as beginning a joint swim club training program with Trail. “We’ve had the Stingrays coming up Mondays and Wednesdays doing a combined swim club, said Rossland pool manager, Marlee Kanigan. With sunny skies and temperatures predicted to be in the high 20’s or low 30’s over the next week, work should progress quickly at Warfield’s Centennial Pool.

RCMP suspend search for missing Trail man BY ART HARRISON Times Staff

The RCMP have made the decision to suspend the search for a missing Trail man presumed drowned in Little Wilson Lake. RCMP were searching for 32-year-old Michael Guthrie who went missing when his boat capsized during a weekend fishing trip on May 25 near Rosebery. Sgt. Darryl Little of the Kootenay Boundary Detachment said in a press release that the search has covered a majority of the area. An extensive sonar search of the remote alpine lake earlier in the week by the RCMP Underwater Recovery Team and a search of log jams at the outlet of the lake by the members of the Slocan Lake and Nelson Search and Rescue Swift Water Rescue Team, provided no sign of the missing man. The RCMP decided to conduct a final aerial search at some point Thursday before calling off their efforts. Little added that the search will be suspended unless more information becomes available, which would then re-institute the search. The RCMP and SAR will continue to monitor water levels in the lake over the coming weeks in order to re-assess any further search efforts.


Kootenay Columbia Learning Centre graduate Taylor Diakew, 18, who was the Class of 2013 valedictorian, was greeted by Trail RCMP Const. Matt Hope Thursday before receiving her graduation certificate. Const. Hope acted as a mentor for students in the centre’s adventure-based program.

Graduation Day takes on bigger meaning for alternate program BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

An academic and personal journey reached a new path Thursday at Trail Middle School (TMS) when 12 students proudly rose to their feet to accept a certificate of graduation. Under the Kootenay Columbia Learning Centre, the Cooperative Education Centre offers a family-like environment for students that have found the program because they left high school and decided to come back or felt that traditional campus wasn't working for them. Nearly 100 people watched in the crowd as the grads were congratulated for their success, some which benefited from about $5,000 in scholarships

from community organizations. “Grad is not an end but a beginning,” said Fred Dattolo, a retired teacher who was warmed by his invitation as guest speaker. Jodi Tache, child and youth care worker, said it's a rewarding day for grads but also their family and teachers who have watched them grow. “It's been a hard journey for most of them as they have personal issues that they have to deal with first,” she said before the ceremony. “It takes years for some of them to settle in and get to a place where academics become important to them and sometimes that's a long journey.” It only took 18-year-old

Taylor Diakew an extra year to complete her studies. The class valedictorian transferred from J. L. Crowe in Grade 10 when life got “ridiculous.” “It was just stuff to do with boys and friends and I wasn't getting the help I needed so I decided it was better to come down here,” she smiled, thinking of a past that seems so long ago. Her goal to find a job in health care will begin with work at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital's cafeteria or house keeping, a financial step closer to working as a care aid.

The West Kootenay Smoke and Steel Car Club will be holding its annual Show and Shine car show at Gyro Park in Trail Saturday offering area car enthusiasts the chance to admire automotive culture from a wide variety of eras and styles. The president of the area club, Wally Drezdoff, says there could be as many as 120 vehicles on display on the weekend, with cars and drivers coming from around the Kootenays, the Okanagan, Northern Washington State, and as far away as Langley. However, the show in the park won’t only be limited to the elite models of the automotive world, all are welcome. “We welcome anyone with a desire to come down and participate,” said Drezdoff. “There are over 40 different categories of vehicles, stock, custom, hot rods, antiques. “We’ve got some of the younger guys with the customized Japanese imports, guys more my age with the

Council ponders fate of mobile vendors By Karen Haviland Castlegar News

The fate of mobile food vendors in the city of Castlegar is still up in the air. At the city’s council meeting Monday, Phil Markin, director of development for the City of Castlegar, told council that his research on mobile vendor criteria in neighbouring cities varies. “I sent out emails to communities within the area and asked them how much they charge for a license and asked them what their policy was concerning food trucks,” said Markin. According to Markin, licensing fees varied from city to city with some communities, such as Cranbrook charging $75 per year, to Salmo, which charges $150 per year. He also asked about whether they had to be Interior Health Authority approved, and about insurance and how close those vendors might set up shop next to brick and mortar food sources. Those distances ranged from 30 metres to 50 metres, no distance prohibition and no sales allowed directly outside places of food business. Councillor Deb McIntosh also told council about a recent meeting regarding food trucks in which four restaurant owners attended. That meeting was facilitated by Castlegar Chamber of Commerce McIntosh was clear that the meeting wasn’t an us vs. them situation, but more about finding fair resolution for all those involved. “The meeting was very insightful,” she explained. “The business

community is not anti-vendor, they are pro-fair. They want it to be fair.” “They are passionate, vocal, and love Castlegar. We need to work with them; they are paying taxes, etc.,” McIntosh added. Those four restaurant’s included McDonalds, the Element, Boston Pizza and Tim Hortons, although other restaurant owners were invited to the meeting. “They all were invited, but only four came.” Councilor Dan Rye waded into the discussion saying the food vendors do have a place in Castlegar. “Vendors have been doing business in Castlegar for years. This is not new. They are huge supporters of communities and create employment. The question is, do we want to put limits on them,” said Rye. McIntosh, on the other hand, pointed out that restaurant owners also add much to the community by way of revenue and job creation and recommended that Planning and Development develop a fair policy for 2014. Council was divided on how to deal with the issue of food vendors. Half wanted a working committee to work on policy, while the other half entertained the notion of having the Chamber of Commerce help with facilitating a policy. McIntosh said the recommendation that the Chamber become advocates for the business owners was a “cop out.” “We absolutely passed the buck instead of tackling it ourselves with a working committee,” concluded McIntosh, who by the way, was against the notion of burdening the Chamber with the task.


Bowling alley keeps rolling By Sam Van Schie Nelson Star

Nelson’s only bowling alley will remain open, thanks to a couple of non-profit organizations that have teamed up to save the facility. The Kootenay Advocacy Network put forward $45,000 to buy Savoy Lanes for the Nelson and Regional Sports Council, which will operate the business going forward. “It’s a perfect partnership — they didn’t want to run it and we didn’t have the money,” sports council executive director Kim Palfenier said, noting local businesses and organizations have also offered to pitch with in-kind donations to help

fix up the facility over the summer. The bowling alley will be closed for the next three months for renovations. Ramps will be installed to make the facility accessible to people in wheelchairs, and there’re bathroom improvements and tiling work that need to be done. It will also be cleaned up and painted before re-opening in September, when leagues start training for their seasons. The facility is well used by senior and Special Olympic leagues. The sports council plans to hire a manager to work in the bowling alley and increase programming there.

Hope attended monthly hikes and other recreational activities through the adventure-based program, one of many programs under the centre’s umbrella.

Using a more understanding and nurturing format, the centre takes on students young and old with different learning capabilities. Though still providing a structured learning environment like Crowe or Rossland Secondary School, the co-op program accepts that it may take longer for students to complete their studies. “There are a whole bunch of kids out there who are struggling in the academic system,” said Tache, who has worked at TMS for three years. “The regular system works for most kids but there are a number of kids it doesn’t work for and we believe they have the same right for an education as anybody else.”

NDP ready to fight Clark in by-election First Green Party MLA sworn in at legislature BY ALISTAIR WATERS Kelowna Capital News

BC NDP leader Adrian Dix says Premier Christy Clark will not get a free pass into the B.C Legislature. He said the NDP will put up a candidate in the upcoming byelection in Westside-Kelowna. “We are looking forward to running a strong campaign with an Okanagan candidate against the Premier in Westside-Kelowna,” said Dix. “The BC NDP will run a candidate with local roots who can offer the people of Kelowna and West Kelowna a strong, local voice in the legislature.” He said the as-of-yet unnamed NDP candidate will advocate for quality healthcare and seniors care, jobs and a thriving local economy, including local agricultural industries and opportunities for young

people. “We will hold the government accountable for its record and for the commitments it made during the election, including its commitment to a balanced budget, to decreased debt and increased job creation,” said Dix. “The Liberal Party will not get a free pass on aspects of its record such as the threat of massive rate increases at BC Hydro due to the government’s mismanagement and the urgent need for investment in our forests.” The local NDP constituency association will choose the party’s candidate. Carole Gordon ran for the NDP in the riding in last month’s provincial election and finished a distant second to Liberal incumbent Ben Stewart, who took 58 per cent of the vote.

On Wednesday, Stewart said he is stepping aside to let Clark run in a byelection is the hope of wining a seat in the B.C. Legislature. Clark lost her Vancouver-Point Grey seat to NDP challenger David Eby in the May 14 vote. The Liberals won the election with 49 of the 85 sears, despite expectations from political pundits that Clark could pull it off and public opinion poll numbers that showed her party down by 20 points heading into the 28-day campaign Dix said he planned to put every effort into supporting his party’s candidate in the Westside-Kelowna byelection and would make the case for strong, local representation. Clark,who lives in Vancouver, said Wednesday she plans to make a second residence in the riding.


Inclusion BC slams district’s SEA layoffs BY GRANT GRANGER

New Westminster News Leader

Inclusion BC has blasted the New Westminster school district’s decision to eliminate 27 special education assistant (SEA) positions to help balance its 2013-14 budget. Faith Bodnar, executive director of the organization that advocates for people with developmental disabilities, said New Westminster’s actions, along with decisions made by the Coquitlam and Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows school districts, raise questions about the right to have a quality education for children with special needs. “Whenever I see cuts like this, it’s very, very concerning. We don’t have enough support right now. We need to be providing support and not be taking it away,” said Bodnar. The New Westminster board of education recently approved cuts to more than 40 fulltime positions, including the SEAs, to cover an Trail District Arts Council presents

June 13 Trail Pipe Band & Kate E. Shaw Dancers June 20 Trail Maple Leaf Band

expected shortfall of $3.5 million for the upcoming school year. The majority of New Westminster’s cuts, Bodnar said, directly and disproportionately target students with special needs. She’s worried such actions could signal a return to segregated education instead of the integrated programs that have been developed. “That would be a huge, huge loss and put us back 25 years for special education kids,” said Bodnar. Bodnar questions what other programs could have been cut back since she considers special education to be basically core education. “I have a lot of very serious questions about why these positions are being targeted,” said Bodnar. Bodnar said she is well aware of the pressures placed on school districts the last few years, but “we should be very loathe to make cuts to helping teachers meet the needs of students, not just in New Westminster, but the province. “They should not be the first on the chopping block.” Bodnar pointed out a recent Supreme Court of Canada ruling on a British Columbia case ruled adequate special education “is not a dispensable luxury.” The court, she said, found severe financial pressures is not a reason to deny access to education for students with special needs.

VICTORIA – Canada’s first provincial Green Party politician is also the first MLA to take the oath of office as the B.C. legislature gets set to resume sitting. Climate scientist Andrew Weaver was sworn in Thursday as MLA for Oak Bay-Gordon Head, the first of 85 MLAs elected to the 40th Parliament of B.C. Weaver said he plans to bring a different style to the legislature, emphasizing policy rather than the loud political theatre that some of the news media prefer. “We should be here to do policy, not to fight,” he said. “Criticism is easy. Constructive criticism is more difficult.” One issue Weaver plans to press the government on is its ambitious agenda to develop liquefied natural gas exports. He said the current high price in the Asian market is unsustainable in the longer term, because of competition from Russia, the

U.S. and Australia, and China’s development of horizontal fracturing technology to exploit its own shale gas reserves. He warned that “massive taxpayer subsidy” may be used to get into a market where prices can only decline. Weaver also repeated the Green Party’s call for a provincial budget officer, similar to the federal office that reviews government plans before they are implemented. “We have accountability at the tail end of policy,” he said. B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk said she expects Weaver to have more influence than other independent MLAs, because of his Green affiliation, his relationships with B.C. Liberal MLAs and his scientific credentials. Premier Christy Clark is to unveil her new cabinet lineup in Vancouver today, followed by a swearing-in ceremony conducted by Lieutenant Governor Judith Guichon at Government House on Monday.


Rendezvous will attract 2,500

Girl Guides from around the world coming for July event BY RICHARD ROLKE Vernon Morning Star

The community has been selected as the site of the 2014 Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous, an event that will attract about 2,500 Girl Guide leaders and youths ages 10 to 18. “Twenty countries have been invited to attend as have all provinces and territories,” said Laurie Hooker, B.C. Girl Guides public relations advisor. “We will double their population for a seven-day period,” she said. SOAR rotates around the province every three years and Enderby was selected over four other

Interior communities for the July 19 to 26, 2014 event. “Enderby offers everything we needed,” said Hooker. “It has the size, the amenities and the surrounding area is full of opportunities. The lakes and streams are terrific.” Participants will camp at Riverside Park and the adjacent arena and curling club will also be utilized. “It’s a real feather in our cap because other communities were vying for it,” said Howie Cyr, Enderby mayor, who envisions long-term economic benefits for the city. “It’s an opportunity that doesn’t arise often. We want people to go home, talk about Enderby and then come back for holidays.” Besides Canadian

SOAR is a $1 million event, including everything from registrations to children spending money and organizational purchases. Organizers were in Enderby Saturday and Sunday for pre-planning and accounts are being established with pharmacies, hardware stores, gas stations and other businesses. “The youth will do a scavenger hunt and they will find out about the community. And while they do that, they can pop into the local stores and shop,” said Hooker. SOAR also provides community service for local charities. “The food banks benefit from the food we prepare or what we have in excess from the camp,” said Hooker.

National Manitoba

Push on to save Lake Winnipeg THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG – Manitoba is setting out to persuade half of Canada and a handful of northern United States to sign an agreement to save the country’s “sixth great lake.’’ Manitoba Conservation Minister Gord Mackintosh said the high levels of pollution in Lake Winnipeg has earned it the dubious distinction of “Canada’s number one water hot spot” and the world’s most “threatened lake of 2013.” Lake Winnipeg is being threatened by huge algae blooms – some so large they can be seen from space – which feed partially off pollution that flows into the lake. Half the water going into the lake comes from Manitoba and the rest comes from other parts of Canada and the United States, Mackintosh said. The clean water agreement would need signatures from Saskatchewan, Alberta and Ontario, as well as North Dakota, South Dakota and Minnesota, Mackintosh said. He said it’s time everyone did their part to save the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world. “The clock is ticking. We have to get going now,” Mackintosh said Thursday. “Clearly, we have got to take efforts to save our great lake to a new level.” The province is now putting together a “Lake Friendly” alliance, which will hold consultations and draft language aimed at cutting in half the pollution flowing into Lake Winnipeg. It won’t be easy to convince everyone to clean up local waterways, but Mackintosh would like to see an accord signed in the next few years – by 2020 at the latest. “There will be negotiation. There will be a lot of effort needed,” he said. “But we know that it can be done.” Manitoba has brought in restrictions on hog farming and fertilization, as well as forced Winnipeg to upgrade its sewage treatment plant in a bid to reduce the phosphorus and nitrogen flowing into Lake Winnipeg.

Tory MP resigns citing ‘lack of transparency’ THE CANADIAN PRESS ST. ALBERT, Alta. – Edmonton MP Brent Rathgeber says one reason he quit the Conservative caucus was because he could no longer stomach being told what to do, what to say, and how to vote by unelected youngsters from the prime minister’s office. “It’s difficult as a lawyer and as a member of Parliament to find my role to be subservient to masters half my age at the Prime Minister’s Office, who tell me how to vote on matters, who tell me what questions to ask of witnesses in committee, who vet my ... oneminute member statements,” Rathgeber, 48, told reporters in his Edmonton-St. Albert constituency office Thursday. “I think legislators like myself have to take a stand ... that we’re not going to read these talking points that are written by PMO staffers, that we’re not going to vote like trained seals.’’” R a t h g e b e r announced on Twitter late Wednesday that he was quitting caucus over a lack of transparency and other concerns. Rathgeber said he takes Stephen Harper at his word that the prime minister did not have advance knowledge of a $90,000

“I think legislators like myself have to take a stand ... that we’re not going to read these talking points that are written by PMO staffers, that we’re not going to vote like trained seals.” Brent Rathgeber

cheque written by Harper’s chief of staff to assist Sen. Mike Duffy in an expense scandal. But he said that raises an even more troubling issue. “I think that a lot of stuff goes on in the PMO that the prime minister doesn’t know about. I mean we know that. We know that he didn’t know about the cheque. And I don’t think that’s the only example.” Rathgeber said he finds it “rich’” that Andrew MacDougall, a spokesman in Harper’s office, has said he should resign and run in a by-election. “I have two other words: David Emerson. You will recall that in 2006 ... David Emerson, having just been elected days before as a Liberal, walked across the floor and joined the Conservative government.” Rathgeber said the government doesn’t seen to understand that it has no parliamentary authority to force him to step down. “The Conservative

party doesn’t own the seat simply because I won it for them in the last election.” He said he will do what his constituents want. “I’m accountable to my constituents and if I sense that my constituents are unhappy with my decision, then I’ll have to deal with it. But the preliminary emails and tweets that have come into the office show anything but unhappiness. “I suspect I’m safe with my constituents,” he said. “I’ll answer to them. I won’t answer to the PMO anymore.” Rathgeber said he isn’t out to hurt the government. “I am not trying to break up the government. I’m not trying to break up the party. I’m doing what’s best for me and best for my constituents and that is to resign from a caucus so I can speak freely on issues.” Rathgeber, first elected to the Commons in 2008 and re-elected in 2011, says the last straw was the

government’s decision to water down his private member’s bill to expose the salaries of senior federal civil servants. In a blog posting, he said he had thought of the Conservatives as a band of outsiders going into Ottawa to clean things up and promote open government and transparency. “I barely recognize ourselves and worse I fear that we have morphed into what we once mocked,” he wrote. He said the party ideals have been sacrificed to political expediency. “A return to balanced budgets, limiting the size and scope of government, the aforementioned open and transparent operation of government, belief in markets and eliminating corporate subsidies are all matters of importance to my constituents but have all been sacrificed to the altar of electoral calculation.” If passed, the bill would have raised the transparency bar for salary disclosure to $188,000. But the committee reviewing the legislation instead decided to raise the

threshold to more than $400,000. Dimitri Soudas, the prime minister’s former spokesman, suggested Rathgeber’s dissatisfaction was obvious after the 2011 election. Soudas, now head of communications for the Canadian Olympic Association, tweeted that Rathgeber’s behaviour made it “obvious it was coming to this.’’ Newfoundland Liberal MP Scott Andrews praised Rathgeber for “taking the high road and standing up for your convictions. This place (the House of Commons) needs more like you.’’ The Canadian Taxpayers Federation condemned the government’s treatment of Rathgeber’s sunshine bill. “It’s absolutely disgusting that the government would gut a piece of accountability legislation in order to keep taxpayers from finding out what senior government employees do and make,” said spokesman Gregory Thomas. “What are they trying to hide?”


Hookah debate flares up THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - A debate has flared up in Edmonton over the Middle Eastern practice of smoking a shisha, also known as a hookah or waterpipe. Some would like to see the centuries-old tradition banned from restaurants such as Edmonton`s Co-Co-Di, where owner Riad Ghazal has offered customers hookahs since 2003. Smoking tobacco has long been banned in the province’s restaurants but smoking shisha through a waterpipe is still allowed so long as it is herbal and fruit-based. Ghazal says he only serves it to customers who are over 18, and explains that it’s a large part of the Middle Eastern culture. He says instead of eating the fruit, you smoke the fruit, adding he can`t imagine finishing his dinner at night without it. But addiction psychiatrist Dr. Charl Els argues that even if there’s no tobacco, there are still many possible health risks when it comes

to smoking shisha. “The issue is not whether it’s tobacco or whether it’s herbal products, because technically, any agricultural product that you combust by burning it can release carcinogens or cancer forming substances.” Aside from potentially causing lung cancer, low birth weight in pregnant women, and greater exposure to carbon monoxide than cigarettes - shisha users also run the risk of developing an infection, says Els. “Because those using the waterpipe wouldn’t necessarily clean the mouth piece between different users,” he says. “So things like meningitis, tuberculosis, hepatitis and a few other infectious disease can be conveyed when people share the waterpipe.” Els also believes smoking shisha can serve as a gateway for youth to start smoking cigarettes, and thinks banning it from restaurants in Alberta would be a step in the right direction.

he news that Alberta MP Brent Rathgeber has decided to resign from the Conservative party is the first bit of common sense I’ve heard emerging from the ivory towers of the Parliament Buildings in a long time. I’m sure he isn’t the only MP to feel this way and perhaps his exit might spur more elected officials to realize they are in Ottawa to speak on our behalf, not repeat written handouts by public relations types who are more interested in keeping their jobs than representing Canadians. More importantly I applaud Rathgeber’s decision to sit as an Independent. That immediately proved to me he’s not out to make any grandstand move by symbolically walking across the floor and joining another political party. This isn’t the same move as Lise St. Denis made when she left the NDP party to join the Liberals. And it’s nowhere near the audacity that David Emerson had when he left the Liberals for the Conservatives less than two weeks after an election. Those two decisions were based more on personal motives and advan-

cing their respective political careers than it was out of respect for Canadian voters. But Rathgeber’s decision comes from listening to his constituents and the moral obligation he has, as an elected representative, to stand up for his riding first and foremost. I must admit much of what comes out of Ottawa in the last few decades has been greeted with obvious skepticism and mistrust. After all, we’ve heard about a former Prime Minister accepting an envelop stuffed with cash. Another Prime Minister secretly funnelling funds to fight a referendum in Quebec. So when an MP, backbencher at that, stands up for what he believes and what he believes his party should be about, it’s bound to resonate. The fact that he didn’t accept the comfort of an opposing party tells me he’s also confident in the support his constituents have in his decision. Imagine that, a federal MP, in the ruling party, listening to the voters rather than the spin masters. The recent scandals surrounding our political system have driven our respect for the institution


BERTRAND Times in Trail

to an all-time low. But perhaps Rathgeber is the canary in the coal mine. Perhaps his standing up to the scripted response from the Prime Minister’s Office and the vetting of his comments is the start of something bigger. Will other elected officials dare to stand up to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his backroom buddies? Or will they weigh the benefits of a fat pension, cushy expense account and chauffeured limousines as a reason to just keep their mouths shut. Look at Revelstoke MP David Wilks who complained about the Conservatives omnibus budget bill last year. He told his constituents that he had “no choice,” but to vote with his party.

Rathgeber has proven that he does have a choice. It’s up to Wilks to have the backbone to follow it through and trust voters will respect him for that. I don’t expect a mass exodus from the Conservative Party but I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few more Tory backbenchers speak up. We’ve already seen two Conservative MPs, Mark Warawa and Leon Benoit, complain that their voices were silenced by their own party. Is it a matter of time before they actually have the courage to do what Rathgeber did? I don’t think this issue is solely the domain of the Conservative Party. In the past Jean Chretien held an iron fist over the Liberal MPs of his era and Brian Mulroney was so cunning that he’s been shunned by today’s incarnation of the Tories. No doubt members of the current opposition parties also keep tabs on what their members are saying and try to steer the narrative into exposing the party in power rather than constructive concerns on the state of the nation. Watching NDP leader Thomas Mulcair hammer away at the Prime Minister over the Senate scandal

makes for great court TV but does little to shorten the employment line or put food on a struggling family’s table. Greedy senators and backroom deals should be dealt with by the justice system and the politicians should get back to doing what they promised to do – deal with the issues that impact Canadians. Rathgeber’s anger boiled over when his private members bill to disclose salaries of top public servants was altered. To me, finding out what those civil servants make would only make me angrier at the fat-cat system we have allowed to flourish. However, his frustration at the controls hovering over elected members by the Prime Minister’s staffers is one that should concern all citizens interested in democracy. Rathgeber’s move has provided a little bit of light at the end of the dark tunnel that is the current state of Canadian politics. What unfolds over the next little while will tell us if his move actually had an impact or it will be business as usual in the Ivory Tower. Guy Bertrand is the managing editor of the Trail Times.

The best chance to expel the army protesters came back in far from politics and put Turkish larger number the next day, democracy on a firm footing.


He has now lost their trust. He won it by promising that his government would not shove conservative Islamic values down everybody else’s throats, and until recently he kept his promise. But his last election victory, in which he got 50 per cent of the vote in a multi-party race, has emboldened him to believe that he can ignore his erstwhile secular supporters. He has pushed through new laws restricting the sale and consumption of alcohol. Despite the misgivings of most Turks, he enthusiastically supports the Sunni Muslim rebels in Syria, as part of a broader strategy of reestablishing the political and economic dominance that the Ottoman Empire once enjoyed in the Sunni Arab world. He even insists on naming the proposed third bridge across the Bosphorus after the 16th century Ottoman ruler, Yavuz Sultan Selim, who is notorious for massacring tens of thousands of Turkey’s Alevi religious minority. Around a quarter of Turkey’s population are Alevis, and they have not forgotten. Once Erdogan could play public opinion like a violin; now he is arrogant and tone-deaf. So where does this end up? Not with the overthrow of Turkey’s elected government, and probably not in a military coup either. Most likely there will be apologies, and some government concessions, and the turbulence will subside. Erdogan will not even be removed as AK party leader right away, though some of his senior colleagues now clearly see him as a liability. The protesters in Paris in May, 1968 didn’t get what they wanted right away either. Indeed, like the protesters in Gezi Park today, they weren’t even sure exactly what they wanted. But 11 months later Charles De Gaulle resigned, and France has never since had to cope with the problem of a Strong Man in power.

D-Day anniversary recognized in France THE ASSOCAITED PRESS COLLEVILLE-SUR-MER, France – Veterans of the 1944 Normandy landings gathered Thursday at the site of history’s largest amphibious invasion for a day of ceremonies marking D-Day’s 69th anniversary. D-Day is considered a turning point in the Second World War. In the June 6, 1944 battle, Canadian soldiers, sailors and airmen joined soldiers from other Allied nations in gaining a foothold in occupied Europe. The success achieved in Normandy helped pave the way to final victory in Europe on May 8, 1945. Eve Adams, Parliamentary Secretary to Minister of Veterans Affairs Steven Blaney, was in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France, on Thursday to represent Canada at the anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy at a ceremony at Juno Beach. Adams also participated in commemorative ceremonies at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Omaha Beach, the National Guard Monument in Vierville-sur-Mer, and the Beny-sur-Mer Canadian War Cemetery in Reviers. In a statement from Ottawa, Prime Minister Stephen Harper called on Canadians to pause to recall and honour the noble sacrifices of the heroes who turned the tide of the war on June 6, 1944. ``By the evening of June 6, 1944, Canadian troops had progressed further inland than any of their Allies _ a proud and remarkable accomplishment,’’ Harper said. ``The day took a heavy toll. To secure victory on D-Day, 340 Canadians gave their lives, 574 were wounded and 47 taken prisoner,’’ he said. Around two dozen American veterans, some in their old uniforms pinned with medals, stood and saluted during a wreath-laying ceremony at the memorial overlooking Omaha Beach, where a U.S. cemetery holds the remains of more than 9,000 Americans who died during the vicious battle to storm the beach under withering Nazi fire. A full day of ceremonies _ including fireworks, concerts and marches _ was taking place across Normandy in honour of the more than 150,000 troops, mainly Canadian, U.S., and British, who risked or gave their lives in the invasion. ``The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory!’’ U.S. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who led Allied forces, said in an historic address after the invasion was launched.

Rossland graduates prepare to be the last from the school BY TIMOTHY SCHAFER Rossland News

A good argument can be made the last Rossland Secondary School (RSS) graduating class is one of the best ever in the school’s 61-year history, based on the merit of two of its 41 graduates of 2013. Annie Cameron and Samanta Fleming epitomize the all around attributes of a student the school has been famous for producing, excelling in all facets of academics, sports, student government and in the community. The two will earn their Grade 12 Dogwood with distinction today when RSS sends off its Class of 2013, but they never thought they would also earn the distinction of being the last of their kind: an RSS graduate. On the eve of Grade 12 graduation ceremonies RSS auditorium (5 p.m.), Cameron and Fleming looked back on their lives at RSS, and reflected on being the last class at the school, which will close its doors as a high school this June. There was some illustriousness in being the last class to graduate from the high school, said Cameron, but it was bittersweet and contained a certain amount of pressure to do the school justice in its final chapter before the final bell tolls. “There are so many people in the community who have come to every single grad ceremony because it is the RSS grad ceremonies, not because they know someone,” she said. “So, yeah, we need to get it right as the last class (for them).” “I never really thought it would be us because they were talking about it for so long,” Fleming added. “It just seems so weird that we are the last ones. It’s always been this big hype for everyone, but now we are put in the spotlight as the last grads.” Cameron was sad to see the public high school come to an end in Rossland, not just from an academic standpoint, but from an extra curricular one as well. There were so many decades of sporting excellence in Rossland, so many provincial titles, and so many of coaches that put

The 41 members of the Class of 2013 have their graduation ceremony today. a lot of time and energy into the school to make it what it was, she noted, but now will be lost. “I don’t want to be the last person to wear my basketball jersey,” Cameron said. “In a lot of ways sports gave RSS and the city its identity. Rossland teams were known across the province.” Cameron and Fleming have been in the spotlight throughout their school careers in Rossland with their academic work—both excelling in nearly all subjects— but in sports and other activities as well. As members of the school’s senior basketball team— which made a trip to the provincial dance in March where the team finished 10th—student council and the Interact Club (a school community service club), Fleming and Cameron are examples of the type of people the small school produced. Cameron also started on the senior girl’s soccer team—that recently hosted the single A provincial championships—while Fleming was instrumental in securing funds through a Columbia Basin Trust grant for school improvements, including chairs and couches for a lounge area in the school library. The two have left a legacy at the school, one that will be lost when they graduate this Friday. Fleming said the school was like a second home with its smaller, more intimate

setting. Students felt a lot more comfortable with who they could speak to and she felt it made her a better person. “And all the teachers, because there are only so many kids, they know you quite well and they can relate to you and understand where you are coming from,” she said. “It just made for a real nice environment to work in.” Some of the teachers Cameron had known most of her life. “You grow up with them, too. Some of the teachers have been here so long you’ve had them your whole high school career ... and some of the teachers were even soccer coaches for me when I was seven,” she said. Because of the small size of the school, Cameron found she did not only get to know the people in her grade, but also people in other grades. That served her well when she went overseas on a student exchange last year, and changed grades when she arrived back in Canada. “So when I came back I already had friends,” she said. A lot of teachers say the 2013 class was not afraid to show each other what they thought or felt, said Fleming, and noted that they all got along so well, a hallmark of most RSS classes. Cameron and Fleming will be leaving the city to pursue the next chapter of their lives, with Cameron heading to McGill University in Montreal

next fall to study biomedical and life science, with an eye towards possibly medicine. Fleming will take the next year off of school and travel and see more of the world, and has already booked a ticket (June 24) to Europe to backpack around, moving on to Asia, then coming back to work a little and then more travel. She wants to pursue degree in design, either architecture or on the film side of things, but she is “kind of undecided as well.” Wherever their paths take them, Cameron and Fleming will be appropriately skilled to handle whatever is thrown at them, after being the first Grade 12 class in the province to graduate from the blended learning program. Although the program had its ups and downs—and was a bit of a shock to get used to—both were grateful for the experience. Cameron was able to take all of the classes she wanted, including art, which wouldn’t have been possible under a regular schedule in such a small school. It also taught good time management skills, said Fleming, because there was no one making you go to class workshops and do the work. “In that way it really prepared a lot of us for what we are going to be going into because we are not going to a bell system anymore to tell us what to do, where to go,” she said. Cameron, Fleming and the other 39 graduates will now be leaving behind a school that was not just an institute of learning, but a place that was an extension of their lives, allowing them to be who they were, or find out who they were. “It will be sad to say goodbye to RSS and know I am not coming back here in September,” said Cameron. Fleming agreed. “I’m really sad to leave my friends. I know we will hopefully stay in touch, but I just feel my grad class was really close. There are also so very few of us, but we all got along really well, which makes it harder, too, to leave,” she said.

Developer ordered to remediate streams By Alex Cooper

No rodeo for Nakusp Arrow Lakes News The Nakusp Rodeo will not return in 2013. Village of Nakusp CAO Linda Tynan’s report to council on May 27 confirmed that Trophy Tournaments will not be returning. In discussions with Trophy president James Bruvall, the topic of relocating the rodeo from the old mill grounds above the Kuskanax Creek delta to the seldom-used Jackie James Memorial Park baseball field was brought up. Bruvall was advised to consult both the RCMP and Liquor Control Board before proceeding. Bruvall stated that he was not interested. The rodeo had been a welcome boon for many local businesses still reeling from the loss of the Nakusp Music Fest.

qualified professional to develop a plan to remediate the identified streams.” Zilkie added that Sage Investments was appealing the order. According to Zilkie, 12 streams were impacted due to a failure to remove temporary stream crossings. Ron Thomson, the land manager for Sage Investments, said he would wait until a ruling was made on the appeal before commenting. “It would just be a bunch of he said, she said and pointing fingers, so it probably doesn’t make much sense,” he said. “Just wait for it to play out and we’ll be happy to fill you in

on what it’s all about when it’s over.” If the appeal fails, the company could be fined $230 for each violation ticket issued. The company could also be prosecuted under the Water Act, in which case it could face a maximum penalty of $1 million and/ or up to one year in prison, said Zilkie. Sage Investments is seeking to develop the property. An application was made last year to have a portion of the property removed from the Agricultural Land Reserve; a decision has not been made. “The success of that will dictate what the next process will be,” said Thomson.

Words to Live By

Many of us remember the childhood rhyme- Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me. Not true! Words wound, sting, cause damage that often last a lifetime. Once the words are spoken they can never be taken back. There is the illustration of releasing a bag full of feathers, the wind takes them and it is impossible to gather them up. So it is with the words we speak. Gossip is another way our words hurt. Reputations have been destroyed and relationships ruined. It again makes us see that words are powerful. But there is good news! Words can be used to bring healing and hope and encouragement and comfort. Proverbs 16:25 “Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones” Lives have been changed by a good word spoken. How great it is to think that our words can be a help not a hindrance to people. From childhood to the final years of life we all need to hear words of encouragement. Children will remember those words and it will help them be better people. Adults will pass words of encouragement on to others. Seniors will be told of their worth and value, they can impart knowledge and wisdom to younger generations. Words can be used to praise and honour God. Psalm 145:21 “My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord” The best words of all are found in the Word of God - The Bible. In it we find words of grace and mercy and hope and healing. It is gives us purpose and direction. Most of all we read about the love God has for each and every one of us. Let us pay attention to the words we speak today to family and friends and those we come in contact with. Let us offer our praise and thanks to God with our words. Let us take time to read God’s Word. Major Heather Harbin The Salvation Army

We could clearly see the little feet, only millimeters long, and in the profile of the face, I thought I recognized the nose. I stand in awe before the wondrous miracle of life. Not everyone shares my wonder. There are some who have no compunction about terminating the life of a little person developing in the womb. For them, aborlouise tion is a woman’s reproductive right, a simple procedure as benign as removing a wart. For me, Everyday Theology a child developing within the womb is not an exclusive reproductive right, but a gift entrusted to the care of both sexes. With the death of Henry Morgentaler, the highly divisive issue of abortion is again attracting public attention. Despite the public discussion, Prime Minister Stephen Harper refuses to allow any debate on abortion in Parliament, and a January 2013 Angus Reid poll found that Canadians lack the “appetite for true legislative action”. The reluctance to formally debate abortion is puzzling given the interest in the topic and the findings of recent polls. Could a lack of awareness about the absence of abortion laws in Canada explain, in part, our hesitation? The Angus Reid poll notes “45 per cent of respondents mistakenly assume that a woman can have an abortion only during the first three months of her pregnancy”. Thirty-five per cent support no restrictions, 5 per cent support a ban, and 60 per cent would regulate abortion in some way: during the first trimester, in cases of rape, when the mother’s life is in danger, or if the fetus has serious defects. (A 2012 Ipsos Reid poll had similar findings.) The Angus Reid poll reported that 43 per cent of men and only 27 per cent of women favor the status quo. This last finding hints at a problem with abortion that is largely unmentioned: coercion is a factor in a high per centage of abortions. A 2004 study, reported in the “Medical Science Monitor”, found that 64 per cent of women who had an abortion in the United States did so because of pressure from someone; either a male partner, mother, father, or medical professional. Abortion is not always the woman’s choice. Abortion in Canada is not a rare procedure. In 2012, there were 64,641 documented abortions in Canada, excluding Quebec. Since 1979, there have been an estimated 3.5-4 million abortions in Canada. Still, we remain ambivalent. Harper has read the mood of Canadians correctly. We lack the collective political will to address the legislative vacuum created when the Supreme Court struck down the abortion law in 1988. While I would prefer that we treasured and protected the miracle of life at every stage, Canada cannot go back to the days when the criminalization of abortion forced women into back alleys. Abortion, to paraphrase Hilary Clinton, should be legal, safe, and rare. Canada has the first two covered; it’s time to work on the third.

LOCAL West Kootenay transit partners win award

SUBMITTED BC Transit has bestowed a SuperStar award on three West Kootenay local governments for outstanding service, cooperation and innovation in transit service delivery. “On behalf of my colleagues, it’s gratifying to be recognized for our efforts to improve transit for our residents,” said Lawrence Chernoff, chair of the West Kootenay Regional Transit Committee. “We are trying to encourage and increase regional ridership; if we can do that, we will go a long way to reducing carbon emissions.” The West Kootenay Regional Committee is comprised of elect-

ed officials from the Regional District of Kootenay-Boundary, the Regional District of Central Kootenay and the City of Nelson. It was formed in 2012 to improve regional transit service for riders while achieving efficiencies in the system. “The collaboration demonstrated by the committee for having the best interests of the region as a whole in mind is a real commitment to growing transit,” said Kevin Schubert, senior regional transit manager for the area. Schubert nominated the committee for the award which was presented on May 28th in Whistler. “This achievement

herbaceous (nonwoody) or tree form. Their blooms range in colors of white, pink, red or coral. The plants can be so laden with single, semi-double or double blossoms that they have to be staked but the beauty and size of these vivid blooms are well worth the effort. Peonies are a spring blooming perennial. With careful planning and the use of the different cultivars a continuous show of these amazing blooms can last from mid-May well into June. Once the bloom is gone the glossy green leaves last all summer turning purplish or gold in the fall. The Peony enjoys well composted fertile soil in a well drained area. Fall is the best time for planting. Provide a generous- sized hole applying a liberal amount of bone meal ( well mixed in), setting the root with eyes up about 2 inches from the surface and back fill with soil being

spot and can take a few years after being transplanted to establish blooms again. If the plant is undernourished the buds may form but not develop. Top dressing with compost and bone meal away from the crown of the plant

will give it a much needed boost. A word of warning peonies do not like to be over fed stay away from fertilizers with high nitrogen numbers. Too much shade will result in a plant that is gangly and competition from other tree or shrub roots will result in a plant that will not thrive. This may seem like a lot of rules, but if planted in the right spot the peony will give you years of pleasure from one generation to the next. Often ants can be seen crawling over the buds, but don’t worry. They are enjoying the nectar and helping to nurture the bloom by removing bud-eating pest.. If using for a cut flower arrangement just dip the buds in water to remove the ants before bringing them into the house.

Greater Trail Sports Heroes honoured BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

Sport BC and Teck honoured nine of Greater Trail’s most underappreciated citizens Wednesday night with the Community Sports Hero award at the Best Western Plus Columbia River Hotel. About 70 people attended the 12th Community Sports Heroes award ceremony that recognizes coaches, officials, mentors and administrators who have dedicated themselves to amateur sport at the community level. Chosen from nominations received from residents, the Greater Trail 2013 sports heroes are Brian Pipes, baseball, Brad Elliott, baseball, Liz Iannone, figure skating, John D’Arcangelo, floor hockey, Dale and Wendy Glover, baseball, Sheila Hawton, Special Olympics, Sandra Rothwell, Special Olympics, and Dan Horan, track and field. The deserving group has over 300 years of volunteer experience among them and it is a rare but fitting occasion to be recognized at last for their phenomenal dedication and work over the years, each responsible for making Trail the Home of Champions. “It’s true they

never get recognized so this is one of the reasons why we do it, it’s because they are our unsung heroes and sport wouldn’t really happen without any of them,” said Viasport manager and emcee Carey Summerfelt. The recipients were feted with a first-class reception at the Best Western Plus and individually introduced and awarded before having a chance to speak. Most speeches were brief, but heart felt, and if there was a common thread it was the importance of volunteering and even more significantly making the experience a positive one for young athletes. “I never considered myself a sports hero,” said Pipes after the ceremony. “I just do what I do because it’s a passion of mine and I have to thank Rick Bisaro who got me started back in 1956 . . . it’s a little bit like pay it forward, and the people who were honoured here tonight were all very deserving, and I hope that other people follow in their footsteps, and have the passion to keep it going.” Dale and Wendy Glover were the first husband-and-wife team to receive the award, a natural progression, says Dale,

from his father’s volunteer influence, and Dale’s personal mentors like Lou De Rosa, Richard Rhodes, and Pipes.

“It’s just the culmination of years and years of volunteering and the more (volunteers) we have, the stronger knit community we have, and the kids are the winners in this.” LIZ IANNONE

“My dad was kind of a Trail legend in the fact that he was a volunteer in everything under the sun, in every organization in town and he always gave back, and he always just told us you have to give back to the place you live, he was a good mentor,” said Dale.

Wendy agrees adding, “It is so rewarding, and I would have done it a long, long time ago if I knew how rewarding it was going to be just to see the kids have so much fun.” Longtime track coach Dan Horan noted that communities depend upon their volunteers, and the success of Greater Trail teams and athletes over the years is a direct result of the dedication of these volunteers and others in the area, however replacing them has been a concern. “They do it for the kids and Trail is lucky to have these people doing it . . . if these people didn’t do it it wouldn’t happen,” said Horan. “You look at all these volunteers and they’re all older. There’s a gap in there about 20 years, there’s some younger people coming up, but not the 30-50 age group.” Nevertheless, being

recognized for years of dedication and hard work is a welcome tribute for the meritorious nine. “I am absolutely thrilled,” said Liz Iannone who has spent over 40 years coaching figure skating, “It’s just the culmination of years and years of volunteering and the more (volunteers) we have the stronger knit community we have, and the kids are the winners in this.” Special Olympic volunteers Hawton and Rothwell were overwhelmed by the honour, and in typical understated fashion Hawton summed up each of the recipients’ motivation behind volunteering. “In the end, we do it all for the athletes. ” Since its inception in 2001, 50 Provincial Sport Organizations have honoured close to 600 sport volunteers in 45 different communities.


The Trail Smoke Eaters took steps to plug the looming hole filled by the departure of skilled offensive forwards Brent Baltus, Garrett McMullen, and Tyler Berkholtz. The team acquired forward Brendan Lamont, 18, from Merrit Centennials in exchange for defenceman Shane Poulsen, and in a separate transaction, sent goaltender Lyndon Stanwood to Chilliwack Chiefs for 19-year-old forward Brodyn Neilsen, and future considerations. The five-foot-nine Lamont played two years in Merritt totaling eight goals and 14 assists in 55 games last season, and should add some speed to the Smokie offence. “Lamont’s a real good player, not a very big kid, but he’ll be our best skater by far, and he’s got some sandpaper, some grit to his game, and he’s got some offensive upside,” said Birks. Poulsen was one of the best d-man on many nights last season, but with the return of Valik Chichkin, Marley Keca, Braden Pears, and Braedon Jones on defence, Poulsen was deemed expendable. Stanwood struggled last year after playing well as the starter in his first season in Trail in 2011-12, but Adam Todd came in and stood tall down the stretch relegating Stanwood to a back up position. “Lyndon is a great, great kid, and when he realized he probably wasn’t going to be the number-one guy next year, he come and asked me if we could move him to a place where he could be a number one guy,” said Smoke Eater coach Bill Birks. Neilsen is a solid six-foot, 175-pound forward who played in 49 games for the Cheifs last season, scoring twice and adding seven assists in a limited role. “He had really good numbers in major midget and junior B . . . he’s got a huge upside and I think he’s got more to bring to the table then he was used last year.” With the exit of the top three of four Smokie scorers, who all graduated from the BCHL and have committed to University programs, coach Birks is making moves to support a promising group of returning players. “I am not going to replace them like they were when they finished here, but guys like Scotty Davidson, and Luke Sandler, (Austin) Adduono, and Jesse Knowler and now with Lamont, it’s looking good.” The team also announced that character forward and Nelson native Adam Wheeldon will be the new captain of the Smoke Eaters for the 2013-14 season.

But we came out with the win,” Marchand said. “We’re obviously very happy, but we’ve still got a lot of work to do. They’re going to come out harder the next game.” Tuukka Rask stopped 53 shots for the Bruins, and David Krejci scored Boston’s only goal in regulation. With his assist, Jagr moved past Paul Coffey and into fifth place on the NHL’s career list with 197 post-season points. “He seems to be having a lot of fun with our group,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said. “(He’s) a 41-year-old that’s never been known for real physical play, but more for the type of game that those Hall of Famers and superstar players play. And right now he’s just doing whatever is asked of him, and that’s a credit to Jags.” Tomas Vokoun made 38 saves for the Penguins a game after he was yanked from the net after giving up three quick goals in the first period. After Krejci, who leads the playoffs in scoring with nine goals and 12 assists, made it 1-0, Chris Kunitz tied it in the second period. It is the first time all season that Pittsburgh has lost three consecutive games. The good news for the Penguins: The last of three teams to blow a 3-0 lead in an NHL playoff series was Boston, which lost four in a row to Philadelphia in the 2010 Eastern Conference semifinals. “We threw it at them tonight and didn’t get the win,” Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said. “But it’s a race to four and they are not there yet.”




THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON - A future Hall of Famer who established his credentials in the open ice, there was Jaromir Jagr along the boards, mucking it up for a loose puck. The 41-year-old former Pittsburgh great outdueled Evgeni Malkin for the puck and pushed it ahead to Brad Marchand, who brought it over the blue line and flipped it to Patrice Bergeron for the winning goal. “Everyone is doing everything in order to get the success and to get the wins, and it doesn’t matter what it is and who it is,” Bergeron said early Thursday after his goal at 15:19 of the second overtime gave Boston a 2-1 victory over the Penguins and a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. “Jags is a perfect example. He’s pretty much a legend; he’s a guy that’s going to be in the Hall of Fame at some point, and he’s doing the little thing right there just to fight for the puck. And you notice that as a teammate, and it goes a long way.” After two blowouts in Pittsburgh to start the series, the Bruins returned to Boston to win a tightly contested game, getting a goal on their first shot just 1:42 in and then another on their last more than 93 minutes of playing time later. With a victory in Game 4 at home tonight, the 2011 Stanley Cup champions would earn a chance to play for a second title in three years. “It was very long, very tiring.

Show appreciation for local umpires


hile you are out at a ball park in the area this weekend, say at the Legion games Saturday at Butler Park, take a moment to appreciate the relative quality of the officiating compared to that seen on major league fields of late. None of it is perfect, of course Some umpires make upwards of 300 decisions a game and, given that there are only two to cover an entire field of play spanning the better part of an acre of ground, angles and personal limitations (we all, however reluctantly admitted, have those) will create errors. Seldom, however will those errors be as egregious, or of the magnitude and importance, as those

all-too-frequently made by, “big league,” umpires who earn a minimum of $95,000 and an average of over $200,000, with benefits including a quality pension plan, to ply their trade on behalf of the game. Just recently I watched an entire crew of major league officials blow a basic rule call about a pitching change when the players/ coaches know the rules better than the umps you know the officiating situation is really awful. Generally, at all levels, those who play the game are marginally or awfully ignorant of the playing rules - that’s why there is an assumption among everybody that the umps know best almost all of the time.

On top of that, and at least two times recently that umpires have not been able, even with instant replay, to come up with a correct home run/not home run call, are the countless times umpires have started and/or ended up in the wrong position to optimize their chances of getting rulings right. The local guys attend, and pay for, clinics every season to optimize their ability

to facilitate fair contests. If the big league guys are attending such seminars (for which they are surely not out of pocket), they obviously are not paying attention during them. This, and poor administration, means they are lazier and less fundamentally sound in the performance of their duties. Couple such sloth with the arrogance of ignorance and you have a recipe for bad calls, and bad feelings among players, coaches and spectators, that are damaging to the game’s reputation and prosperity. The arrogance comes out most strongly when umpires initiate confrontations rather than handling them with aplomb, although that may also come from the belated

Sunsafe Tip:

Drink plenty of water and embarassing (at least 8 glasses a day) knowledge that they to avoid dehydration and heat-related illnesses. have, in the moment, sucked. Baseball is the greatest game ever devised, for so many reasons I will not enumerate them here, but requires quality officiating to be at its best for all involved. Major league umpires are not providing that lately, to the game’s detriment as both sport and entertainment. Fortunately for us, the local guys put in the work, and do the fundamental things, that lets them let the game be what it should, most of the time. So, every once in a while, tip your hat to their efforts and appreciate the difficulties of doing the job with limited manpower. You might even consider learning how to do the job yourself and joining their ranks. It is a fulfilling endeavour when it is done right.

Discuss depression, self harm with parents Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

I feel comfortable confiding in. None of my friends know, and I am scared that I will do more damage to myself than I intend. Please help me. I hide behind a smile every day, and I am so lost. -- Depressed in Hiding Dear Depressed: Please tell your parents you aren’t feeling well and ask them to make an appointment for you to see your doctor. A lot of what you are describing may have physiological origins that can be treated (such as a hormonal imbalance). You can speak to the doctor privately and tell him what you told us. But please don’t be afraid to

guests (related or not), it is both gracious and appreciated. However, if there are many such guests, it can be beyond the means of the hosts to include them in the rehearsal dinner. It is appropriate, however, for them to provide some welcoming snack or hospitality for all out-of-towners upon their arrival, since such guests are unfamiliar with nearby restaurants and might be arriving too late to eat at the hotel coffee shop. Dear Annie: I was moved to write after reading the letter from “California,” the man who felt so guilty about a brief extramarital affair he had 40 years ago that he wanted to confess it to his children. My parents divorced in 1968, when I was 13. I would respect my father more if he would acknowledge that his affairs were a significant reason for the divorce. Our mother

told us, but didn’t use it as part of the divorce proceedings. I think she thought it was too embarrassing. Dad married his girlfriend six months later. Last summer, my 87-year-old father had the nerve to tell me that my mother was

the one who wanted the divorce and he didn’t know why. While you may think it would do more harm than good, I’d rather my father tell us than keep lying. -- S. Dear S.: Your father had a long-term affair that resulted in a divorce. It is not the

same as a brief indiscretion that was deeply regretted. And while Dad should not lie or blame your mother, it’s possible that, at the age of 87, he no longer clearly remembers the reason behind the divorce.

discuss this with your parents. They love and care about you. They may be worried, but they will want to help, and you will feel better confiding in them. Dear Annie: My cousin is getting married in another state. I have four other relatives in my city, and we are planning to go together, even though we’ve seen this cousin only a few times in our lives. The wedding is on a Sunday evening, and we’d arrive on Saturday afternoon. If there is a rehearsal dinner on Saturday night, should we be included as out-of-town relatives? We’re already spending a great deal of money on airfare and hotel rooms. What do you say? -- Dinner Guest or No?

2013 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Dear Annie: I am a 16-year-old girl in high school. I have so much to be thankful for, but recently, I have been feeling like something is wrong with me. Quite frankly, I am depressed. I am always tired, anxious and nervous, and I have outrageous mood swings. I have lost all focus, ambition and motivation, and sometimes it just hurts to breathe. I hate to use this as an excuse for my grades, but I had been a straight-A student, and now I have two C’s and a B. This is unacceptable. I hate disappointing my parents. Along with the grades and the other symptoms I mentioned, I am constantly having trouble eating and recently resorted to self-harm. Suicidal thoughts also accompany this, as much as I hate to admit it. I worry that if I tell my parents, they will hate me. I don’t have a teacher or counselor


Trail Times Friday, June 7, 2013 A17


YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Saturday, June 8, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This is the best day of the year to think about how clear you are in your communication with others. Do you listen to others, and vice versa? TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The New Moon makes today the day to make resolutions about how to improve your money scene. What can you do to earn more? What can you do to save more? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The only New Moon in your sign all year is taking place today. Take a realistic look in the mirror to discover what you can do to improve your appearance. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It’s important to be aware of your beliefs. What gives you guidelines? What do you do to balance the busyness of your days?

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Friendships are important. Studies indicate that friends even improve our health. What kind of friend are you to your friends? Think about this. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) What is your relationship to authority figures? Do you resent authority? Do you accept it? The New Moon today urges you to think about this. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) What further education can you get to improve your job or enhance the quality of your life? Think about taking a course or traveling to expand your horizons. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This might be the best day of the year to think about how to reduce your debt. You also might ponder how to redefine the boundaries of shared property.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Today is the only New Moon all year that is opposite your sign. This means it’s your chance to make resolutions about how to improve your partnerships and close friendships. Any ideas? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) What can you do to improve your job or get a better job? What can you do

to improve your attitude to your job? Happiness is liking what you do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Our society places much emphasis on work and the success of earning money. But this is no guarantee of happiness. How well do you balance your work with fun and play? PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) This is an excellent day to

think about how to improve your family relationships and also how to improve your home. When things are solid at home, your world feels better. YOU BORN TODAY You understand form and structure and have a very organized mind. You’re careful, and you always consider the ramifications of whatever you do. Many of you easily learn technology. You’re outspoken and frank, which









endears you to some, but appalls others. Personally, you are courageous. In the year ahead, partnerships and your closest friendships will be your main focus. Birthdate of: Joan Rivers, comedian/actress; Mark Feuerstein, actor; Julianna Margulies, actress. (c) 2013 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
