Mayors joining forces to address energy rates



Greater Trail mayors are seeking power in numbers before they address the province about an energy rate disparity between Fortis BC and BC Hydro. Warfield, Trail and Montrose mayors formed an alliance last week in light of a recent energy report, which determined that Fortis consumer rates are about 20 per cent higher than its counterpart, BC Hydro. “We already realize that we need to involve other mayors within the Fortis service area,” said Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs. “And discuss how we are going to handle this issue from a political perspective.” The energy rate report, which has “We need input not been made puband consensus lic, was commisfrom the entire sioned earlier this year by the Energy service area, and Sustainability including the Committee of the many rural Lower Columbia C o m m u n i t y directors, to Development Team determine the Society (LCCDTS). best strategy to “Right now, we are on a fact-findmove forward.” ing mission,” said BERT CROCKETT Warfield Mayor Bert Crockett. “We need input and consensus from the entire service area, including the many rural directors, to determine the best strategy to move forward.” Bogs has been appointed the spokesperson for a future strategic planning session to address concerns arising from the significant difference of residential rates between Fortis BC and BC Hydro customers. Though specifics can’t be shared at this time, the report uncovers some of the primary drivers behind the rate differences, according to Mike Martin, LCCDTS chair. One reason, he said, is that Fortis has completed upgrades to its distribution systems. “Fortis had a very aggressive program over the last few years to complete system upgrades,” said Martin, in an earlier interview with the Trail Times. “By government intervention, BC Hydro has not been allowed to do that.” Also, BC Hydro has access to a lower interest rate because every loan is backed by taxpayers in the province.

Conroy will keep an eye on the Columbia Kootenay West MLA adds CRT to critic’s role BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

The Columbia River has a new watchdog to guard the future of its southerly flow. Katrine Conroy has been appointed opposition critic

for the Columbia River Treaty (CRT) review after an NDP post-election reshuffle of duties. “I asked Adrian (Dix) for the job because I think it is a really important issue in our region,” said Conroy. “We need to have a designated person from the Kootenay

area who will make sure that we are represented in talks with the local and provincial government committees. “I think things need to change,” she added. “Let’s face it, the treaty decimated our agricultural industry, and impacted tourism and recreation. This time we need to

have terms that benefit us in all areas.” The position also assigns Conroy responsibility to oversee Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) operations and Columbia Power. These duties previously fell under the umbrella of See COLUMBIA, Page 3

Tulip take out


RSS drops in rankings while Crowe climbs School report cards released By Timothy Schafer Rossland News

The best high school in the district and one of the best in the region dropped in the annual Fraser Institute’s secondary school rankings for the province. Rossland Secondary School fell from 49th out of 260 secondary schools to 103rd out of 284 secondary schools in the annual School Report Card ranking system. With an enrolment in Grade 12 of 43, the average exam mark for the final year of RSS was the lowest it has been in five years at 71.6 per cent, down from a high of 75 in 2010. The percentage of exams failed, however, decreased in 2012 to 5.6 per cent from 6.1 per cent. The school where RSS students could be heading this fall, J.L. Crowe Secondary School in Trail, performed better but was still behind RSS’ performance at 107th in 2012, down from 80th. The average exam mark at Crowe was 68.1 per cent, up slightly from 2011’s 67.8. The average exam mark in the last five years—for an enrolment of 159 Grade 12 students—has not risen over 70 per cent. The percentage of exams failed also decreased in 2012 to eight per cent from 8.3 per cent. The average exam mark at Castlegar’s Stanley Humphries was 67.6 per cent, down slightly from 2011’s 68 per cent. The school’s performance dipped at 173rd in 2012, down from 119th in 2011. The average exam mark in the last five years—for an enrolment of 142 Grade 12 students—has not risen at Stanley Humphries over 70.1 per cent. The percentage of exams failed also increased in 2012 to 10.3 per cent from 8.6 per cent. In the nearby Kootenay Lake school district the top school was Nelson’s L. V. Rogers, that was ranked 98th out of 284 schools. To the north in the Arrow Lakes school district, the district’s only high school in Nakusp rose three rankings from 207 to 204th. To the west in the Boundary school district, Grand Forks’ high school rose from 191st to 133rd in 2012, while its only other high school, Boundary Central in Midway, was 213th, down from 131st in 2011. Only two public schools appear in the top 20 secondary schools as private schools continue to dominate the ranking system. Public school Okanagan Mission is ranked 17th, while Vancouver’s University Hill is slightly lower at 18th, tied with private schools Kelowna Christian and King David. Private school York House rated the highest, with a perfect score of 10 out of 10, followed by Crofton House, Southridge and St George’s. The Report Card rated 284 public and independent schools based on several factors, largely based on mandatory provincial exams in grades 10 through 12.

Trail Rotarians pulled up the tulip bulbs at the arena at the beginning of the month. The bulbs were given to Glenmerry Residents Association and the Forestry Class at J.L. Crowe where they will be replanted on the hillsides. Due to upgrades to Victoria Street this summer, the arena bed and the flagpole bed at the base of Glover Road won’t be planted. But look for the show beds in other areas of town. Anyone wanting to help with maintaining the beds, contact CiB at 368-9227.

Concerns rise over energy rate disparity FROM PAGE 1 Bogs added that BC Hydro receives tremendous financial incentives from the provincial government such as grants in lieu of taxes; benefits that Fortis BC is not subject to. “There are substantial advantages in terms on Hydro’s debts, which are at the provincial borrowing level and significantly lower than those of Fortis,” he said. “Somehow the government

needs to have Hydro and Fortis on the same playing field.” However, the rate disparity results are somewhat marred by BC Hydro’s practise of deferral accounting. Customers don’t see a rate increase but it shows up in the BC Hydro books as an asset. Currently, the deferral account is sitting on a $5 billion mountain of debt that awaits ratepayers. “We cannot lose sight

of the fact that BC Hydro rates are lower, in part as a result of government intervention into energy setting,” explained Martin. “Our concern is that the debt level of BC Hydro needs to be addressed and this should not be at the expense of ratepayers within the Fortis BC service area.” An online search for current energy rates finds that Fortis bi-monthly residential rates are listed as $30.33

based on a 60-day billing period. The first 1,600 kWh are billed at 8.803 cents per kWh; any additional kWh are billed at 12.952 cents. Under the residential conservation rate, BC Hydro customers pay 6.90 cents per kWh for the first 1,350 kWh they use over an average twomonth billing period. Above that amount, customers pay 10.34 cents per kWh for the balance of the electricity used during the billing period.

Columbia River Treaty currently under review FROM PAGE 1 BC NDP’s Energy Critic, John Horgan, but Dix decided “it would be better to have a Kootenay person,” explained Conroy. The CRT review began in 2011 with a series of public consultations and com-

mitment from the Local Governments’ Committee, with support from CBT, to provide an opportunity for residents to understand the impact of the CRT, and this time around, maybe have a say in its terms. “The first time around

in the ‘60s, the government came around and said this is what’s happening,” said Conroy. Although the treaty was signed without a specific termination date, a minimum length of 60 years (2024) was agreed upon.

The BCUC is expected to rule later this year on the application. FortisBC spokesperson Neal Pobran said without that approval, it’s premature to speculate how the company will respond to the OIB’s move. “We’re definitely going to work with all concerned customers if we get approval, and hopefully we can get a resolution through dialogue,” he said. “It’s a bit early in the game, because we don’t even have a project to begin with, so we can’t really speculate if we’re even

going to be going out there and putting on these meters.” Pobran said the company isn’t contemplating an opt-out option for individual customers, and isn’t sure to which evidence the OIB has referred. “There’s no real scientific or health reason to be concerned with the advanced meters,” Pobran said. The smart meters proposed by FortisBC are designed to wirelessly relay usage information to a neighbourhood hub, which would then transmit the information to headquarters.

Tougher fines for speeding sought

THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - Police chiefs in Alberta want the provincial government to toughen up its traffic laws. They have voted in favour of a resolution that would allow officers to seize vehicles of drivers caught going more than 50 kilometres per hour over the speed limit. It would also give officers the authority to suspend drivers’ licences - both of which would last one week. Edmonton police chief Rod Knecht says there’s too many people being killed on the highways and it’s due to people driving 160-170 km/h and even 200 km/h. The chiefs don’t want it to be a mandatory seizure; they want police to have the ability to use their discretion when seizing the vehicle. Knecht says that would accommodate circumstances

such as a woman in labour with a complication. “We just don’t want to see people killed,” said Knecht, who is head of the Alberta Chiefs of Police. The vote was not unanimous because in some rural areas, worries about access to tow trucks was an issue. The chiefs approved a similar motion in 2009, but the province turned it down. Justice Minister Jonathan Denis said Monday there’s no hard proof it would work. “We simply haven’t seen any evidence to suggest that these additional seizure powers that are being advocated would actually have a measured impact on these high-speed drivers,” Denis said. According to the B.C. Ministry of Justice, since its policy went into effect in 2010, the number of fatal and injury-related crashes was cut in half compared to the previous five-year period.


Another Montreal mayor resigns THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL Montreal has had its second scandal-provoked mayoral resignation in less than a year, with an arrest and criminal charges leading to the departure Tuesday of an interim city-hall boss. Replacement mayor Michael Applebaum stepped down a day after he was slapped with 14 criminal charges. He made the announcement in a two-minute statement at city hall. He did not take questions. Applebaum said he’s innocent of the charges against him and will work to prove his innocence. “I will do everything I can to prove the accusations against me are unfounded,” Applebaum said. “I hope you understand that I will put my energy into my defence and my family. This is why I am resigning as mayor of Montreal. It is the responsible thing to do.” He said he hoped to someday regain

Montrealers’ trust. He conceded that, in the meantime, it would have been implausible to try continuing as mayor. In making that direct appeal to residents Applebaum committed a quintessentially Montreal linguistic flub, mixing English and French terms with unintended consequences. “I would like to tell Montrealers that I love them - that I understand their frustration, their deception and their cynicism with

the political climate of the last few years.” The word “deception” has an entirely different meaning in French. In the local franglais patois, however, even native English-speakers like Applebaum will occasionally use the term incorrectly when they mean to say, “disappointment.” The mistake was not without irony. Applebaum spent part of his statement combating the notion that he had deceived Montrealers.

Senate scraps plan for pep talk THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Two speakers hired by the Senate to help motivate senators and staff in the midst of a raging scandal over the abuse of taxpayers’ money have had their event cancelled pending further discussion. Communications consultant Barry McLoughlin and motivational speaker Marc-Andre Morel had been slated to talk about “the enduring value of the Senate and help bring a little perspective to the current situation,” according to an invitation that went out Tuesday morning. But after a story by The Canadian Press publicized the event, a number of prominent senators blew a gasket. Marjory LeBreton, government leader in the Senate, said the idea was discussed in principle at a meeting of the internal economy committee’s steering committee. But it was never approved by members of the committee. “I was shocked when I saw that (email invitation),” LeBreton

The Senate has been rocked for the past six months by a scandal involving four senators and their alleged abuse of living and travel expenses.

said outside the Senate chamber. “I would strongly suggest that the administration cancel any plans they have for motivational speakers.” Asked if she thinks hiring speakers is a waste of money, LeBreton responded: “At this point in time, I certainly do.” Sure enough, late Tuesday afternoon all senate staff received a fresh, high-priority communication. “The staff sessions scheduled for tomorrow have been cancelled until further notice, pending discussion with the full committee of Internal Economy,” said the email from Reina Bernier, the Senate’s senior advisor on services and programs.

ne of the most misunderstood concepts in modern politics is what we colloquially refer to as “democracy”. Canadians, Americans, many European states and other select nations across the world refer to their system of government as democratic, but rarely comprehend the foundations upon which the term is based, or the sub-variants of democracy operating in the world today. No two democracies are really the same, though we can find commonalities among those systems that are parliamentary, presidential, or semi-presidential. But apart from the type of democracy a nation may adopt, one of the key elements examined is the degree to which democratic principles are followed. Arguably, the most important component of a functioning democracy is constitutionalism, meaning the adherence by a government to the rules and separation of powers defined in a written or unwritten constitution. In most systems this involves allocating power in different branches of government, such as an

executive branch, a legislative branch, and a judicial branch. Beyond separating power, it is also important for each of these branches to be able to check the power of the others, so the consolidation of power is not centralized in one branch. These defining aspects of modern democracy stem from a conscious effort to avoid despotism and corruption, and are predicated upon historical experience and philosophical teachings. In recent weeks, Canadians and Americans have been compelled to question the very nature of their political systems and the degree to which their democracies are working. In the Canadian context, the role and independence of the Canadian Senate have been quite prominent for all of the wrong reasons, as scandal and ethical corruption seem to be running rampant in the chamber dedicated to “Sober Second Thought”. In the United States, revelations about a complex surveillance network known as PRISM and accusations of the government listening to phone conversations, monitoring personal email, and the


MURRAY Troy Media

existence of an Orwellian “Big Brother” state apparatus have citizens and government officials questioning precisely how democratic America actually is. Much of this questioning is derived from the fact that government has become far too big and the people have allowed their rights to be violated due to the growth in governmental control and operation. We do not have pure democracy because, as Aristotle pointed out 2,000 years ago, it is deviant. Allowing every citizen of a state to have a say in the daily function of government is unreasonable, and thus grew what we now know as representative democracy. The entire purpose of these democratic systems is to allow the cit-

izenry to elect representatives who will effectively embody their interests and goals, and protect their rights. There is no doubt we need government based on the inherently self-interested nature of humanity, but we must also hold government to account because those representatives we elect are equally as self-interested, and thus we separate power among governmental branches to avoid corruption. James Madison, writing under the pseudonym Publius, summarized this idea very well in Federalist Paper 51 when he argued: “But what is government itself, but the greatest of all reflections on human nature? If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” We live in an era where governments are far too

big. And because of their size they are virtually impossible to hold accountable. Governments on both sides of the border have become crutches for people rather than institutions designed to ensure people have the best opportunities to achieve their full potential. We have allowed them to micro-legislate virtually every aspect of daily life. It really is only a matter of time until we see the “How to Wipe your Nose when you Sneeze Act”. The social contract of granting power to representative government was never intended to remove accountability and civic responsibility from citizens. It was, rather, a way for people to determine what kind of government they wanted to help guide them towards the best society possible. Somewhere along the line we dropped the ball and should not be so surprised at the Aristotelian deviancy we see out of our government’s today. Robert W. Murray is an Adjunct Professor of Political Science in the Department of Political Science at the University of Alberta.

Is there a new broom in Iran?


ou certainly can’t say that Iranian elections are boring. In 2005, Iranians surprised everybody by electing the darkest of dark horses, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to the presidency. They didn’t know much about him, but at least he seemed different from all the establishment candidates. Well, he was different, but not in a good way. By the 2009 election Ahmadinejad’s erratic and confrontational style had turned people off, and he should have lost – but he rigged the vote and triggered mass protests that badly frightened the regime before they were crushed. Term limits prevented Ahmadinejad from running again this year, which meant that last GWYNNE Friday’s election was clean. So the Iranians pulled off another surprise, World Affairs electing Hassan Rouhani, the only moderate candidate among the six contenders, to the presidency in the first round. Rouhani got 50 percent of the votes; his closest rival got only 16 percent. The foreign reaction to Rouhani’s victory was instantaneous. The United States offered to open direct talks with Tehran on Iran’s nuclear programme as well as on bilateral relations. Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, by contrast, predictably warned that there should be no “wishful thinking” about Rouhani’s victory. So what is he: new broom, or another disappointment in the making? Especially in the past week, after the “reformist” leadership decided he was the least bad alternative and threw its weight behind him, Rouhani has been saying some interesting things. “What I truly wish is for moderation to return to the country,” he told the reformist daily Sharq last Wednesday. “We have suffered many blows as a result of extremism.” “It seems that extremists on both sides are determined to maintain the state of hostility and hatred between (the United States and Iran),” he told another newspaper on Thursday, “but logic says that there should be a change of direction.” And he repeatedly promised that both the nuclear issue and the resulting economic sanctions against Iran would be solved if he became president. Fine words, but he said most of them AFTER the reformists lost hope for a victory themselves and gave Rouhani their support instead. But he is still really an insider, a man whose whole life has been dedicated to preserving the present political order in Iran. On the other hand, so are Mohammad Khatemi and Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the two ex-presidents who gave him their backing. They are now seen as reformers because circumstances change, and so do people’s views. All


these men are still determined to preserve Iran’s unique combination of theocracy and democracy, but they understand the need to shift the balance towards democracy, and also to deliver a reasonable level of prosperity to the voters. You might think that Rouhani’s highest priority, therefore, must be to end the sanctions that are crippling Iran’s economy and impoverishing ordinary voters. Not so: trust comes first. In order to retain credibility with the people who voted for him, he must first release Iran’s political prisoners. There are at least 800 political prisoners in Iran. Most are people who participated in the “green” protests against the rigged election of 2009, but journalists, human rights activists, feminists and leaders of all the minority religions in Iran (Christians, Sunni Muslims and Bahai) are also in jail. Even amidst great economic hardship, that is what the crowds in the streets celebrating Rouhani’s victory were demanding most urgently. After that, of course, he must make a deal with the Western countries that have waged a long campaign on Israel’s behalf against Iran’s alleged intention to build nuclear weapons. That is not an impossible task, for Iran is certainly not working on nuclear weapons at the moment: the US National Intelligence Estimates of 2007 and 2011 both say so, and even the Israeli intelligence chiefs agree. The whole campaign against Iran is based not on evidence but on mistrust: the conviction in some Western quarters (and most Israeli ones) that if Iran can enrich uranium, the “mad mullahs” are bound to build and use nuclear weapons in the end. But it is Iran’s right to build nuclear reactors and enrich fuel for them under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which it has signed and still observes. Many in the West are privately uneasy about waging a campaign against Iran’s quite legal nuclear power programme when their own ally, Israel, has not signed the NPT and secretly possesses hundreds of nuclear weapons. Now that motor-mouth Ahmedinejad is gone and a saner leader is about to take the reins in Tehran, there could be a deal on the nuclear issue. It would be a deal that preserves the country’s right to enrich uranium, but strengthens the controls against enrichment to weapons grade (90 percent). As with the question of releasing political prisoners, however, Rouhani must first get the assent of the Supreme Guide, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Khamenei, as the head of the theocratic side of the government, has the power to veto everything. On the other hand, he also wants to preserve this strange two-headed beast called the Iranian revolution, and he knows that if it does not retain popular consent it will eventually die. Western sanctions are bringing the Iranian economy to its knees, and people are really hurting. So maybe Khamenei will let Rouhani and his backers save him.

Trail Eagles pitcher Brad Ross brings the heat as Lucas Miracle takes a big cut, and Kai Birks hustles into second base. The Eagles won the Little League Major championship on Sunday at Andy Bilesky with a 9-1 victory over Nelson.

Eagles fly over Angels for Little League title BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

The word dynasty can’t help but pop up when talking about Little League Major’s Trail Eagles. The Eagles soared to their fourth Little League Major title in a row on Sunday at Andy Bilesky Park, defeating the Nelson Angels handily in the final match. The Eagles went undefeated in the round robin with victories over Grand Forks and Nelson to get a bye into the final where they would bring the Angels down to earth with a 9-1 drubbing. “As a young team, our kids all stepped up and everybody played awesome,” said coach D.J. Ashman. The Nelson squad may have used up all its resources as they narrowly beat out a tough Beaver Valley team 12-10 in the semifinal earlier Sunday, before facing the defending champion Eagles in the final

match. Despite the Eagles past success, this year’s result was a little surprising for Eagles coach Ashman who had just one player returning from last year, and three 10-year-old minor-age players filling out the young lineup. “From the beginning of the year I didn’t know what to expect,” said Ashman. “I mean for 13 kids to come together and play as good as we did was awesome.” The Eagles didn’t waste any time getting on the board as they jumped out to a 3-0 firstinning lead, on the strength of a Riley McKinnon double that scored Jordan Sheets and Brad Ross. Kai Birks then stepped up and drove in McKinnon giving the Eagles’ starting pitcher Ross a nice three-run cushion to work with. And the veteran righthander didn’t disappoint as he struck out four over two innings, before passing the ball

to 10-year-old rookie sensation Lucas Miracle. Nelson threatened in the fourth inning, but a great relay from left field to home plate snuffed out the Angel rally. The Eagles would score another in the fourth before Nate Ingram slapped a double to left field in the top of five to plate the fifth and sixth runs. Miracle continued to cruise with the only blemish coming in the fifth when the Angels would piece together a double and a single to score their only run of the game. Leading 6-1 in the top of six, Sheets laid down a perfect bunt that netted him a triple, and would later score on a double from Marty Ingram. Ross would ice it with a two-run bomb to straight away centre field. He then reclaimed the mound and closed the game for the Eagles, striking out the final two batters for yet another Little League Major title for Trail.

Bruins blue collar work ethic grinding Hawks down THE CANADIAN PRESS BOSTON - Injured Bruins forward Gregory Campbell limped up to the podium, the very picture of Boston Strong. Campbell has become part of hockey lore since breaking his leg blocking a shot while killing a penalty against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern final - and then finishing his shift. While Campbell downplays his heroics, coach Claude Julien says he epitomizes the bluecollar Bruins.

Campbell, who is on crutches after surgery June 10 to repair a broken right fibula, downplayed all of that when he met the media Tuesday at TD Garden. Asked about the legendary Bobby Baun, he said there was no comparison. “I don’t put myself in his category,” Campbell said. Baun scored the overtime winner for Toronto in Game 6 of the 1964 Stanley Cup final against Detroit despite breaking his foot midway through the third period

after being hit by a Gordie Howe shot. “I respect fully that feat of his,” Campbell said. “And mine was nowhere near that,. But it just goes to show you how tough you have to be to play in this league. There’s 700, 800 players that are tough like that and play through things every day.” But as Boston readies for Game 4 tonight, coach Claude Julien says Campbell epitomizes what the Bruins are all about: a blue-collar team that appreciates stars and role players alike. “That’s how we’ve always been,” he said. With respect, Campbell refused to be singled out. “Again, I’m not going to

put myself in front of anybody else and say I’m the picture of the Bruins. This Original Six organization has gone back a long way,” said the 29-year-old from London, Ont. “It kind of represents the city, a blue-collar hard-working city with honest people. “So when I got traded to Boston, I thought it was tailor-made to my game the way this team exemplifies the heart and soul of what a hockey player should be made of. I was proud to come to this team and play hard for this team every night. There’s 18 other guys in that room that would do the same thing, and that’s what makes us successful, and makes us a hard team to play against. I’d rather be known for my play other than getting hurt.”

ed Jason Vargas, but Raul Ibanez instead got the call after the 34-year-old Bay felt his hamstring tighten up during Sunday’s game in Oakland. “He got a little knot in there,” manager Eric Wedge told a mlb. com reporter. “We got him out here early and tried to have him run a little bit, but we talked about it and felt we’d be putting him in harm’s way.” Wedge is already operating with Michael Morse playing first base while still hampered by a sore right quadriceps and Kendrys Morales limited strictly to designated hitter duties by a sore back. Justin Smoak is eli-

gible to return from the 15-day disabled list as he continues a Minor League rehab stint with Triple-A Tacoma due to a strained oblique, but the first baseman went 0-for-4 on Sunday and is hitting .188 (3-for16) in four games with the Rainiers. General manager Jack Zduriencik is with the Rainiers in Sacramento and planned to watch Smoak play again Monday night before the club talked further about whether he’s ready to return. Bay meanwhile has seen ample playing time this year, and is hitting .222 with eight home runs and three stolen bases in 53 games.

Husband may be afraid to grow up Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

fun? -- Feeling Like My Husband’s Mother Dear Feeling: You and your husband do not have compatible goals. He wants to be an irresponsible child while you do all the work. And so far, you have gone along with that. Maybe he’s afraid to grow up, maybe he’s too addicted to pot, maybe he’s simply a Peter Pan. Ask him to come with you for counseling so the two of you can work on a more equitable partnership. If he is unwilling or if nothing changes, there is no future here unless you want to spend the next several years mothering this grownup child.

and strongly opposing this possibility. Do you have any suggestions for her? -- Friend of the Family Dear Friend: This is completely up to the couple, and your friend should try to stay out of it. Frankly, the wife has the stronger claim for carrying on a family name. It’s also possible that the couple will have other sons. And plenty of women object to the old-fashioned (and sexist) notion that only the boys count when it comes to lineage. We know your friend is hurt and disappointed, but if she wants a relationship with her son, his wife and their child, she needs to put this aside. Dear Annie: I shared the same frustration as “Troubled in High School,” the 16-yearold girl who can only think about boys, drugs, alcohol, dating and grades. She wants her life to be exciting. I’d like to suggest she try participating in

her school’s community service club. I was a member of my school’s “Key Club,” which is sponsored by the Kiwanis organization. It gave me the opportunity to focus on things outside of myself and my desires as a teenager and allowed me

to put my energy into doing good. My friends who did drugs respected me enough to never offer me drugs. I hated that my parents were so strict, but now that I’m almost 30, I can appreciate that they molded me into an indepen-

dent person who is confident in leading instead of following. There is nothing wrong with being a perfect little angel. I’m proud of that reputation. -Happy in Hawaii Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

It’s a painful lesson to learn that love isn’t always enough to turn someone into marriage material. Dear Annie: My friend’s son married a lovely young woman whose only brother died a few years ago. The wife kept her maiden name after marriage for professional reasons. The couple is expecting their first child, and the wife would like to name the boy after her deceased brother, giving him her last name. Her reasoning is that it would ensure that her family name is carried on. Her husband has male cousins who can carry on the family name, but she doesn’t. My friend is in shock. If her son agrees to this irrational request, she believes her family name stops there. In her mind, cousins do not count in carrying on one’s lineage. However, she doesn’t want to cause a family rift by openly

Dear Annie: My sweet, kind 33-yearold college-educated husband has regressed into a teenager. He has always been a marijuana user, but a year ago, he befriended “Jake,” and now the two of them smoke marijuana daily. They spend their evenings riding skateboards, playing video games and hanging out with college kids. I would like to buy a house, have children and further my education. My husband says he wants the same things, but he always has an excuse for not saving money. We both have good jobs, and he promises to start putting money aside “next month.” It never happens. I know he won’t give up pot. He says he will get divorced before he quits smoking marijuana, and I knew that before we married. Am I wrong to put my foot down and expect him to grow up?

When you speak, you dazzle others with your ideas! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Trust your moneymaking ideas, because they’re excellent today. You are inventive, imaginative and, at the same time, resourceful. Don’t hesitate to push your agenda. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Today you are stimulated by beauty and a strong interest in art, music or portraits. You see so many beautiful things and have so many

Wednesday, June 19, 2013 Trail Times

beautiful ideas, you feel transformed. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Solitude in beautiful surroundings will be replenishing and restorative for you today. Sometimes we need to do something that is like a healthy drink to revive our energy. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Conversations with younger, artistic, creative people will please you today. This is also a good day to begin partnerships or enter into a new arrangement. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Discussions with authority figures will go well today. They are impressed with your practical take on things, and at the same time, they see that you have an appreciation for how things look. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Travel plans, especially travel for pleasure, will

delight you today. Some will make plans to further their education or training. Others can benefit from opportunities in medicine, the law and publishing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) This is a good day to ask for a loan or a mortgage. You also can ask someone to give something back to you if they owe it to you. It’s your winning day.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Relations with partners and close friends can be warmly bonding today, or in turn, troubled relationships can be repaired. This is also a good day to begin new partnerships. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) You can expect good support from co-workers today. Trust your ideas and impulses, because they could lead to

a raise or praise from others. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Romance, love affairs, social activities, the arts, musical performances, sports events and playful times with children are favored today. You want to have fun, and you won’t hesitate to express your desires. YOU BORN TODAY To others, you are charismatic, excitable and thrilling company. All this energy









helps you to be persuasive whenever you choose to be. Ironically, you often are not aware of your influence over others. Nevertheless, you easily motivate and rouse people to action. In the year ahead, a major change might occur, perhaps something as significant as what took place around 2004-05. Birthdate of: Grace Potter, musician; Nicole Kidman, actress; John Goodman, actor.
