Festa Italiana attracts big crowd




School board saves cash by moving office



There are 20,000 reasons why the next school district budget might not cut so deep. Since 1999, at a cost of $20,000 per year, School District 20 has been subletting office space in the downtown Trail Fortis building. When that lease expires on Sept. 30, the school board offices will move to the Kootenay Columbia Learning Centre (formerly called Trail Middle School) in East Trail. “This has been a pressing item for a long time,” said Mark Wilson, trustee. “Luckily our lease is expiring and we can get out of that building into a facility that we own,” he said. “And not only recuperate some good money, but save some as well.” Wilson is referring to the terms of the agreement between SD20 and West Kootenay Power (WKP) Corporation (now Fortis) 14 years ago. SD20 entered into an option to purchase the leased premises for $914,888 on June 30, 2013 by providing WKP a $157,469 prepayment. The prepayment (less GST) accrued an interest at over 12 per cent, compounded monthly, until the option was exercised. However, because the board has voted to move on, according to the terms of the agreement, WKP must return the initial option payment, plus $760,773 accrued interest. This item was listed on the 2013-14 budget adjustments, said Natalie Verigin, SD20 secretary treasurer. She added that there is office space capacity at TMS, and the move will create $20,000 in operational savings. Although the SD20 board continues its juggle to balance the 2013-14 final budget, one figure that won’t be adjusted anytime soon is the number of trustees on its board. At a meeting earlier this month, the boardappointed electoral review committee decided “not to pursue further review of trustee electoral issues,” said Darrel Ganzert, board chair, at the June 17 meeting. “I am disappointed with the outcome,” said Wilson. “We have the same number of trustees with 13 fewer schools.” In March, the board appointed a review committee to re-examine SD 20 electoral arrangements including: the total number of trustees; the number, boundaries and names of district wards; the number of trustees in each ward; and the trustee to elector ratio.

Fire ban request goes up in smoke BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

A Fruitvale resident’s request for council to ban backyard campfires has gone up in smoke. Melissa Hart approached council last month to request a total outdoor wood burning ban within the village limits. Hart’s reason for a ban was health related, as she and her four-year-old son require medical treatment for asthma, a breathing condition exacerbated by wood burning. “When we moved to Fruitvale five years ago, my husband and I thought it was a great opportunity to get clean, fresh air for our future child, she explained.

“But now I can’t even open my windows because of all the smoke.” Council deferred its decision pending further review, but after a committee of the whole meeting last Monday, it was decided that the village would not change its current burning bylaw. “I am feeling helpless because I am right back where I started, said Hart. The couple built an environmentally friendly home, an “asthmatic’s dream house,” said Hart. The interior is replete with hardwood floors and HVAC system, but due to air inversion in Beaver Valley, nearby campfire smoke settles into her backyard. Within the legal limits of a backyard fire, the neighbours enjoy intermittent

campfires, she said. “But our house is kind of in a ‘hole’ and the smoke comes right down into our yard.” The Fruitvale burning bylaw restricts open fires to piled material no larger than one-half metre in height and onehalf metre in width and cannot contain household refuse or compostable yard or garden waste. “In a survey of our constituents we determined that most taxpayers enjoy their intermittent campfires and ceremonial fires that are permitted, said Mayor Patricia Cecchini. “Although council empathized with residents suffering from asthma and See WOOD, Page 3

Around 200 people spent the day enjoying a break in the weather to take in traditional food and entertainment at the Festa Italiana at the Piazza Colombo in Trail Saturday. Those with a sweet tooth had the opportunity to sample Italian baking and gelato while those with heartier appetites could get their fill of pasta with meatballs or a variety of Italian sausages on a bun. Entertainment ran throughout the day including performances by the Harmaniaks, the St. Michael’s School choir singing traditional Italian songs, and the Trail Pipe Band, who were joined by Trail Princess, Emily Dawson, who jumped in with the band for an impromptu demonstration of her highland dance skills. The younger set were entertained by a roaming clown creating balloon animals and could get their faces painted by the Trail royalty and the contestants in the Trail ambassador program. Festival organizing committee member, Gord Gattafoni, was glad the weather cooperated for the return of the celebration. “There were a lot of people praying for good weather,” he said. “Looks like it worked because it shone on us.” The festival had originally started in 2003 but after a few years lost steam because of a lack of funding. With the recent construction of the Piazza Colombo enthusiasm was revived and the organizing committee saw the opportunity to revive the celebration using the Piazza as its base. “We believe Italian culture is about more than a plate of spaghetti and two meatballs,” said Gattafoni. “It’s about family and coming together and we want to celebrate that. This has been a good family day which is what we expected; the people of Trail support these kinds of groups.” Gattafoni stressed that the Piazza is open to any culture who might want to celebrate their heritage. “I’d like to see other cultural groups use the Piazza to celebrate their cultures as well,” he said. “There are all sorts of cultures that make up Trail and this place isn’t just about Italians.”

East Kootenay


Swollen rivers Village recognizes longtime volunteer begin to recede Montrose

By Valerie Rossi Times Staff

By Sally MacDonald

Cranbrook Daily Townsman

The East Kootenay is switching from emergency to recovery as creek and river levels begin to decline. However in Wasa, the flood is still on its way. According to a statement from the Regional District of East Kootenay’s information officer Loree Duczek, things are improving across the region. The highway through Wasa is now open to single lane alternating traffic, but the threat at Wasa Lake is by no means over. The Kootenay River peaked Saturday evening and levels have begun to decline. However it takes seven to 10 days for Wasa Lake to see the effects of high water in the river. It’s expected that water in Wasa will rise quickly. In Hosmer, evacuation orders were rescinded Sunday with residents allowed to return home. The Forest Service Unit Crew stacked 3,000 sandbags ready to put into use at the Hosmer Fire Hall. Clean up kits were expected to arrive from the Red Cross Monday. A meeting was held in Hosmer with 75 people in attendance and provided the community with information and an opportunity to ask questions. The alert for Elko Dam, at risk of giving away due to the volume of water over the weekend, was cancelled on Sunday. BC Hydro personnel remain on site and will continue 24 hr surveillance while water levels remain high. Fernie remains in a state of local emergency. There was localized flooding in the Annex, and pumping took place Saturday afternoon with success. The storm water system is handling the water at this time. All dikes are holding. In Sparwood, the focus is beginning to turn to recovery, as city staff begin to assess trails and parks for damage.


Two rescued while float plane sinks

The Nelson Star Two people were rescued Sunday afternoon after their float plane overturn and sank near Seven Mile. RCMP Sgt. Darryl Little says as the privatelyowned Lake Buccaneer amphibian was taking off around 2:45 p.m., it hit two or three boat waves, causing the plane to drift and go nosefirst into the water. Nelson Search and Rescue manager Lou Coletti said three of their members responded in a rescue boat. When they arrived, the male pilot, 62, and female passenger, 57, both from Tarrys, had already been pulled from the water by boaters in the area. They were not injured. “We circled around the middle of the lake for a bit but couldn’t find any sign of the plane,” Coletti said. “The water was ripply. If it was super smooth, we might have been able to see oil bubbling up.” He wasn’t sure if further efforts will be made to recover the plane.

A Montrose resident who has been volunteering since her candy striper days at the Trail hospital has been recognized for nearly 30 years of dedication. Linda Randall was awarded the Montrose Community Service Award this month in front of her neighbours during a cerremony at the Montrose Hall. She moved to Montrose with her husband Todd in 1985 and has made a difference ever since. “Sometimes community spirit is hard to define but not in this case,” said Montrose Mayor Joe Danchuk. “This person is one of those individuals, who, through her actions, makes this an easy choice.” At 16 years old, Randall headed to the hospital after school to volunteer as a candy striper and later spent time in the gift shop. After taking some time off from giving back to have children, Randall went on to serve for 27 years with the Beaver Valley Girl Guides. She started because her daughter needed a Brownie leader but then took part in Pathfinders and later acted as secretary for the district and finally as district commissioner before hanging up her hat. Then the avid card player fell into hosting the village's crib and whist card party for seniors every second Monday, a program the 56 year old has organized for the past 13 years. “We're just like a little family now,” she laughed. “They're all like my aunts and uncles because we're really that close.” Randall has served on the Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Canada for 25 years and has also been part of the provincial body. Born with the birth defect, Randall

during child-bearing years because it reduces the risk of neural-tube defects in children.” Randall hopes that others will give volunteering a try and realize that with it comes joys like making new friends and learning new skills. “If you don't have volunteers, you just know that you can't rely on things happening,” she said. “Without it, you can't have little events and things that make a community a better place.”

Wood smoke impacts health CommunityLINK budget

FROM PAGE 1 other cardiovascular conditions, they decided to respect the wishes of the majority of taxpayers.” Fruitvale is part of a wood stove exchange program, to replace old inefficient stoves with new high-efficiency wood stoves, proven to reduce emissions by up to 70 per cent. And when Hart first presented council with a package of information which included clean air policies from the Canadian Lung Association (CLA) and Families for Clean Air and Clean Air Revival, she was clear that her request was to ban campfires only.

“Fruitvale is taking action to reduce the harmful effects of wood smoke, she said. “But choosing to keeping residents happy by allowing bonfires comes as a consequence to others,” she said. “And those consequences are negative health effects. I just don’t get it.” According to the CLA, wood smoke can depress immune system activity, damage the layer of cells that protect and cleanse the airways, and disrupt cell membranes and enzyme levels. Hart said that she will continue with her cause to ban open burning fires, and is considering starting a petition.

meeting Wednesday By Sheri Regnier Times Staff

A special open board meeting will be held on Wednesday at the Kootenay Columbia Learning Centre (formerly called Trail Middle School) in East Trail., 6 p.m., to address the CommunityLINK budget. Last Monday, the board announced its decision to pull over $19,000 from the CommunityLINK budget to pay for the cost of an elementary counsellor. With a budget reduced to $87,000, three community schools will be feeling the squeeze to their child and youth at risk programs. It is important to note that $50,000 of that is surplus funds, said Verigin. “Once that is spent we will have zero surplus CommunityLINK funds,” she added.

Ferry officer handed four-year sentence Sturgis North cancelled in deadly Queen of the North sinking Merritt

The Merritt Herald The Sturgis North Motorcycle and Music Festival has cancelled its 2013 event in Merritt. The group had planned to hold its festival from Aug. 22 to 25 at the old Merritt Mountain Music Festival grounds, but is now postponing the event until 2014 due to time constraints with the new location, according to its website and Facebook page. In May, when Sturgis North announced it would be coming to Merritt, president Joan Hanson told the Herald that festival organizers hoped Merritt’s

proximity to the Coast, the site’s festival-ready infrastructure and lower costs would help the company pay off its outstanding debts to its two former sites. The 2011 inaugural event was held in Salmon Arm, and the 2012 event was held in Vernon. The first year cost about $1.5 million more than organizers expected, which is what prompted the move to Vernon in the first place, Hanson said last month. The company has garnered criticism from some people for leaving debts at its former sites.

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - The mariner who was navigating the Queen of the North passenger ferry when it ran aground and sank off British Columbia’s northern coast, killing two passengers, has been sentenced to four years in prison. Karl Lilgert, 59, was convicted last month of criminal negligence causing the deaths of Gerald Foisy and

Shirley Rosette, who vanished when the Queen of the North missed a routine turn and collided with a remote island in March 2006. Judge Sunni Stromberg-Stein said Lilgert’s relationship with quartermaster Karen Briker - who was the only other crew member on the bridge when the ship struck land - was a significant factor in the crash.

It was their first time working alone together since their relationship ended several weeks earlier, and the intimate details of the affair were laid bare during the trial. “Clearly, he was distracted by personal issues related to his relationship with Ms. Briker,” said Stromberg-Stein as she read her sentencing decision in B.C. Supreme Court on Monday. “I do not need to speculate on what Mr. Lilgert was doing on the bridge that night. I know what he was not doing. He was not doing his job.” Lilgert sat at a table with his lawyer as the sentence was read. Once the judge finished, he was led away. Last week, the Crown recommended a six-year prison term, while the defence

asked for a conditional sentence with no time in custody. Lilgert’s lawyer has already indicated that he plans to file an appeal of the conviction. Lilgert was on the bridge of the Queen of the North shortly after midnight on the morning of March 22, 2006, several hours after leaving the northern community of Prince Rupert on an overnight voyage to Port Hardy on Vancouver Island. There were 101 passengers and crew on board. The ship missed a scheduled turn as it entered a body of water known as Wright Sound, and evidence presented at trial indicated the vessel then continued on a straight line toward Gil Island, without making any significant course changes or even slowing down.

National Falling loonie impacts cross-border shopping THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - With the Canadian dollar expected to continue its downward spiral well into the summer, Canadians may find themselves out of luck went it comes to bargain hunting south of the border. “Things are necessarily going to be more expensive,” said Nick Bontis, an associate professor at the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University. “The timing is not the greatest either. Face it, we’re entering into summer right now. The weather is getting better. People are willing to take road trips... (but) if you’re just crossing the border because you want to buy clothes or a pair of shoes for your kid - at the end of the day, it doesn’t make any economic sense.” On Friday, the loonie tumbled to its lowest level in more than 18 months, dropping 0.76 of a cent to 95.64 cents US. Bontis said a weakened dollar does not bode well for cross-border shopping, especially as more Canadians decide to spend their money at home now that popular U.S. retailers like discounter Target have opened their doors here.

Mulcair trails Trudeau and Harper on leadership THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - NDP Leader Tom Mulcair closed out the spring sitting of Parliament on an apparent high note, but a new poll suggests his widely lauded work in question period has not translated into public support. The telephone survey of just over 1,000 respondents placed Mulcair behind both Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau on a range of leadership attributes. A majority of respondents, 56 per cent, reported having had a favourable impression of Trudeau; 39 per cent said the same of Harper and 37 per cent Mulcair. The national poll was conducted June 13-16 at the end of the last full week the Commons was sitting.

More is less for federal communication

The CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The federal government employs nearly 4,000 communications staff in the public service, an increase of 15.3 per cent since the Conservatives came to power in 2006. Data compiled by the Parliamentary Budget Office shows there were 3,865 “information services” employees on the payroll at the end of the 2011-12 fiscal year, up by 512 since Prime Minister Stephen Harper assumed office. The Harper government has come under fire for spending tens of millions of dollars on feel-good economic advertising and media monitoring. Meanwhile, Information Commissioner Suzanne Legault is currently investigating a complaint that government communication rules are stifling public access to information on taxpayer-funded science.


Province approves $1 billion in relief THE CANADIAN PRESS The Alberta government is approving $1 billion to kick start the first phase of recovery from what the premier has called the worst flooding in the province’s history. Alison Redford said Monday the money will be used to support people who have been forced from their homes, as well as to run relief centres and to start rebuilding infrastructure. She said the government will provide pre-loaded debit cards to displaced residents to help with their immediate housing needs and day-to-day purchases. Those who qualify will receive $1,250 per adult and $500 per child. “This is going to be a tough week, but we are going to get through it,” she said at a news conference. “We are going to stay committed and we are going to make sure that, in the long term, we do everything we need to ensure that families and communities can feel safe and that we rebuild and honour our past and our future,” she said. “We are going to do - please listen to my words - whatever it takes to get everyone back to a place where they can continue to live their lives.” Redford said the unforeseen expense means Alberta won’t

meet its goal of balancing the budget next year. “It is going to affect the budget and I will say right now, because someone is going to ask the question, ‘Are we sticking to the plan to balance the budget?’ No, we’re not,” she said. “The world changed (last) Thursday morning and I think as a Treasury Board we’ve come to terms with that. We think Albertans have come to terms with that. “This is like nothing we have ever faced before and we are up to the challenge.” Torrential rain last week filled up creeks and rivers that were unable to contain so much water in such a short time and surged over their banks to inundate communities throughout much of southern Alberta. R e d f o r d ’ s announcement came at the same time Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi said almost all of the 75,000 city citizens who had to flee high water from the Bow and Elbow rivers last week could return home. Nenshi said only people who live in the downtown area and in a small section of the Inglewood district directly to the east were still being kept out. He warned property owners returning to assess damage and start the long clean-

at an update. The city was starting to turn its attention to recovery, however, including “facilitating the return of as many folk as we can where it is deemed safe to do so.” About 1,000 homes were hit by high water and 10,000 people who were forced to head for higher ground on the weekend were still out. About 1,500 people were registered at the city’s emergency centre and accommodation had been provided for about 600. Mayor Norm

Boucher said it would be at least several days before the city would be “more mobile.” “It’s still not safe for people to return home. The water has moved down but it hasn’t moved down a lot,” Boucher said. “There’s still debris coming out. We have some dams that are starting to leak a little bit.” Sand-bagging efforts continued as a result, he said. “I know (people) want to go back ... but the reality is they won’t have electricity. They won’t have gas in the house.” Anyone trying to go back early “will be stopped,” he said. People in High River, the community hardest hit by the flooding, didn’t have much reason for optimism. Mayor Emile Blokland said there was still no timeline for when 13,000 evacuees would be able to return. He said he understood their frustration, but explained that the town’s infrastructure had suffered a “critical blow” and every house needed to be inspected.

Flood changes landscape

THE CANADIAN PRESS CANMORE, Alta. A leading scientist says flooding in southern Alberta has changed the Rockies and the foothills forever. John Pomeroy, one of Canada’s top water researchers, says the overflowing waters have changed everything from how the landscape will handle future flooding to the animals that live in it. Pomeroy says Alberta towns and cities will need much better flood defences in the future to handle high rainfall events. He says the Bow River has swallowed so much silt from eroding banks that its status as a blue-ribbon trout stream is in doubt. Pomeroy says many of the developments that have been affected by the flooding should never have been built in the first place. up would need to be cautious and likely wouldn’t have utility services right away. Further east, in Medicine Hat, there was no move to allow people to go home, even though the South Saskatchewan River crested Monday morning. Water that had submerged streets and surrounded homes and businesses was slowly receding. But Ron Robinson, director of emergency measures, warned that protective barriers continued to be “bombarded” by the high and fast-moving river. “The structural integrity of our berms is at issue and we require vigilant monitoring. Substantial flooding continues to impact our berms and (they) could fail suddenly,” Robinson said

Cabinet rookies handed province’s hot files


here are nine new faces in Premier Christy Clark’s cabinet, seven of them elected to the B.C. legislature for the first time on May 14. They have been handed some of the hottest problems, and Clark’s marching orders in “mandate letters” for each ministry. And this is the start of a four-year term, when unpopular reforms are attempted. Take Amrik Virk, the former RCMP inspector from Surrey who’s suddenly in charge of advanced education. His mandate includes: “Review the student loan program to make recommendations for improvement to ensure the loan program is meeting the needs of today’s students.” Virk must also set targets to “match the skills we need with the skills we are graduating” and require post-secondary schools to “ensure student seats are being filled.” B.C. can’t afford to

keep cranking out university grads with $50,000 in debt and no job prospects in a system that’s subsidized 65 per cent. Virk will be working closely with Education Minister Peter Fassbender, who must “ensure seamless transitions” from high school to the workforce for post-secondary trades and apprenticeships. In his spare time, Fassbender is to overhaul the school district bargaining agency and achieve a 10-year peace with the teachers’ union. Justice Minister Suzanne Anton has worked as a Crown prosecutor, so she’ll have some insight into the system that still grapples with Stanley Cup rioters from two summers ago. Her orders are to get traffic tickets and other administrative penalties out of the courts, keep working on integrating police fiefdoms and generally treat the constipation that afflicts law enforcement today.



Oh, and get that new Okanagan prison built, to relieve a system that has inmates living in tents. And examine whether to spin off the Liquor Distribution Branch into a Crown corporation, a possible prelude to selling it. Tr a n s p o r t a t i o n Minister Todd Stone’s first test was a grilling by the Vancouver media. Yup, this Kamloops hayseed has been to the Big Smoke a few times, ridden that fancy SkyTrain and taken the odd ferry, too. Now he has to impose the ferry route reductions that have been worked on

by two previous ministers, and push Metro Vancouver through a referendum on ways to fund its own transit. If more tolls or taxes are going to be implemented, now is the time. Coralee Oakes has made a political leap from Quesnel city hall to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. One of her key tasks is to invent a framework for a “rural dividend” from liquefied natural gas development in northwestern B.C. Oakes has to figure out how to “better provide provincial support” to sport and cultural organizations, but do it with no new money. All ministers have strict instructions to balance their lean budgets and take part in the latest “core review” to identify government functions that can be sold, delegated or shut down. New Minister of International Trade Richmond’s Teresa Wat

has to find a way to continue the growth of lumber and other exports to China, India and elsewhere on the Pacific Rim. On top of that, the always-delicate softwood lumber agreement with the U.S. expires in three years. The last major eruption on that front was in 2009, when B.C. cut stumpage rates for remote coastal areas to give communities much-needed employment. The Americans were livid, just as they were with our beetle-kill harvesting efforts. And of course, the U.S.-directed environmental movement continues to target Canadian industries. Third-term MLA John Rustad gets aboriginal relations, with specific instructions to deal with gas and perhaps oil pipelines through his Nechako Lakes constituency.

Deen will appear on NBC THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Paula Deen will appear on NBC’s “Today” show on Wednesday, according to host Matt Lauer. Lauer’s announcement came Monday, three days after the celebrity cook abruptly cancelled on the morning show, where she was scheduled to answer questions about her past use of racial slurs. Lauer said Deen “told us she will be here this time.” The Food Network announced it wouldn’t renew her contract when it ends this month.

So by plished under the Constitution. failing to confront Quebecers Since the Constitution does


not contemplate a province leaving, it would have to be amended. Such an amendment would fall under the unanimity rule, meaning that Quebec must negotiate secession with the nine other provinces plus Ottawa; any province, even tiny Prince Edward Island, could legitimately upset the secession applecart all on its own. Nor would any province give its consent unless it got its quid pro quo; Quebec taught us that rule of constitutional negotiation. Federalism doesn’t disappear simply because Quebecers vote to make it go away. Respecting minority rights means that Ottawa would almost certainly have to protect the interests of at least two minorities: Aboriginals (who have zero interest in leaving Canada) and federalists who voted to remain in Canada. Accordingly, Quebec could not possibly get out of the negotiations with its territory intact. Minorities given short shrift in the negotiations could turn to the Supreme Court for relief. Fond fantasies aside, Quebec cannot, by majority vote, wave away its legal obligations. Quebec would crave and need international recognition, but that recognition will only be forthcoming if Quebec leaves according to the rules. Those are the ones the Supreme Court has laid down. Virtually any imaginable secession deal that could emerge from such negotiations would be repugnant and unacceptable to Quebec nationalists. Result: economic devastation and deadlock, no matter how much Quebecers might wish to leave. Breaking up is indeed hard to do; so hard in fact that the chances of it ever occurring are microscopic. We should say so and act accordingly. Brian Lee Crowley ( brianleecrowley) is managing director of the Macdonald-Laurier Institute, an independent think tank in Ottawa:

Political system needs more transparency An editorial from the Amherst Daily News A new poll that shows Canadians overwhelmingly believe politicians are ripping them off should be a wakeup call for those in power. An already cynical electorate is quickly losing the little interest they have left in a political system that’s still democratic but anything but representative. The Canadian Press HarrisDecima survey indicated that 86 per cent of those polled believe it’s likely that MPs and senators are claiming improper expenses. Of those, 56 per cent

said it’s very likely. The poll comes after weeks of ongoing controversy over the spending habits and questionable living and travel expenses of four senators Mike Duffy, Patrick Brazeau, Pamela Wallin and Liberal Marc Harb. It’s also leading to increased calls for more scrutiny and transparency on what our members of parliament are claiming as expenses. It seems as though election to the House of Commons, or appointment to the Senate has developed a culture of entitlement among our elected and

appointed representatives. It would almost appear as though parliamentary or Senate life has shifted way from representing Canadians to taking advantage of Canadians. What’s happened is that Canadians are more aware of what’s going on in our nation’s capital. They want greater transparency in government. The sad thing is if they don’t get results they’ll disengage and the level of cynicism will continue to the point no one will show up when elections are held. That would be a sad day for Canada.

Fans hoping actor included in Canada’s Walk of Fame

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - A group of Corey Haim fans is hoping the late teen idol will be included when the newest crop of inductees to Canada’s Walk of Fame is announced today. Philadelphia web designer Jennifer Shirley has spent the last few months urging fans to nominate the Toronto native for the honour. “I really wanted to give justice to the person that he was, and how he really respected the art of film,” said Shirley, founder of the “Give Corey a Star” campaign. Haim - best known for a string of 1980s films including “The Lost Boys” and “Lucas” - battled drug addiction and died of pneumonia in 2010 at age 38. Shirley, 21, became a fan through the 2007-08 reality TV show “The Two Coreys,” which followed Haim and “Lost Boys” co-star Corey Feldman. “I saw his fight to get back to the person he used to be,” said Shirley. “This was a guy who was flesh and blood. He had real struggles like everyone else, and had real demons, real hopes, and real dreams.” Shirley joined a small but passionate international community of fans, who interact regularly online and speak often with Haim’s family. In March, the fans sent white roses - Haim’s favourite flowers - to his grave site, and Shirley took charge of a petition to get Haim immortalized with a star. Initially, the petition pushed for a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and attracted 1,300 signatures - including Feldman and singer Debbie Gibson. When the Walk of Fame informed her that

there was a five-year waiting period for posthumous nominations, she turned her eye to the Canadian Walk of Fame. Each year, the Walk of Fame only inducts one Canadian posthumously. “It would be a huge honour for him to be on that,” she said. “He loved and cherished those days when he was a teen idol. It was so much more than a job to him he lived for acting. The Lost Boys, the fandom: that was his place.” Haim’s family has supported the petition, blasting out the message through social media. “Personally, I’d love to see his star on the Canadian Walk,” the actor’s sister, Cari Haim, said in an e-mail. “My brother was a true hockeyplaying, skating-in-the-backyard Canadian kid. It would be awesome. If not this year, then I hope he’ll be on the ballot in coming years.” Shirley is hoping that Haim gets his due. She said the fact that Haim was not featured in the “in memoriam” montage at the Oscars and Screen Actors Guild award ceremonies when he passed away was “an insult.” “This was a guy who entertained people for almost 30 years, and it’s just a shame that his later years scrapped him from all that.” Fan campaigns have worked before in Canadian Walk of Fame inductions. Comedian and TV star Phil Hartman, who died in 1998, got his star after three years of efforts from supporters and his brother, Paul. Shirley is confident Haim will have his day, whether it’s this year or in the years to come.

Dbacks split double bill


Times Sports Editor

Warfield’s Haley Park was the site of the U12C Regional Fastpitch championship on the weekend, and the host team Steelers did not disappoint, winning the title in convincing fashion. The Trailer Steelers steamrolled the competition by ending each one of their five games via the mercy rule, including a 10-2 victory over Prince George Jr. Panthers in the final on Sunday at Haley Park. “We had a great, great weekend,” said Steelers coach Pam Caron. “The whole weekend we never had a down game, they never get stressed out, they never even know what the score is.” The Steelers jumped out to a great start in the final game when Tessy Brandt struck out the side in the top of the first, then received ample run support with a five run first inning, and a commanding 5-0 lead that the Steelers would not relinquish. After the Jr. Panthers got one in the top of two, backto-back doubles in the bottom half by Clarice Tuai and Elle Mayer would set up another three run inning. Prince George would rally in the third, but with runners on first and second base, and a full count on the batter, Alyssa Piva would catch the Panther hitter looking at strike three for the third out. Each time the Panthers threatened the Steelers would rise to the occasion and stymie a potential threat. Again in the fourth, the Panthers had their lead-off batter on base, but catcher Kady Stajduhar would gun her out trying to steal second, and Brandt, who re-entered the game, would then


The Trail Steelers steamrolled the competition at the U12C Regional Fastpitch championship at Haley Park in Warfield including a 10-2 victory over Prince George in the final. It was an all-around team effort from great hitting and base running from the likes of Clarice Tuai, below, and dominant pitching from the whole staff including Alyssa Piva, left. Team members include: Kady Stajduhar, Tessy Brandt, Clarice Tuai, Kira Konkin, Katie Dann, Halle McKinnon, Olivia Buckley, Carollynn Ballarin, Elle Mayer, Megan Caron, Alyssa Piva, and Jordan Amantea.

BY TIMES STAFF The West Kootenay Diamondbacks suffered their first loss of the season in American Legion AA play on Sunday, but managed a split in a doubleheader against Medical Lake. The Dbacks were forced to skip its double bill at home at Butler Park on Sunday when the Medical Lake team cancelled due to issues with crossing the border. The Dbacks instead travelled to Medical Lake to take on the West Spokane team for yet another road game. The Diamondbacks came through in the first match with Tanner Johnson picking up an 8-5 win, however, Medical Lake bounced back in the second game with a 7-2 victory over the Dbacks. The Diamondbacks cling to first place in Federal Division play, a game ahead of Colville, and two games up on Medical Lake. With 10 games remaining on the schedule, the 7-1 Dbacks look to make the American Legion Playoffs as one of the top two teams from the Federal division that move on to play against the top two from the American division, and the top four from the National. The Diamondbacks are scheduled to host Northwest Christian High School in a doubleheader at Butler Park today with games at 3 and 5 p.m., weather permitting.


Weir tees it up at Women’s Amateur

strike out the next two batters to dash the hopes of the visiting Panthers. Mayer would top it off it in the bottom of the fourth inning with a home run blast that sailed over the left fielder’s head to make it 10-1 Trail. The Panthers would score a run in the top of five, but Steeler pitcher Piva would bear down and get the final batter out on strikes for the sevenrun-rule victory. Having played together for the past three years, Caron says the team chemistry and dedication is what sets this roster of 9- to 12-year-old girls apart from the other teams. “The group just really gels. They are from a whole bunch of different schools; they’re Grade 4, Grade 5 and Grade 6’s and they all just really gel together, and they are so keen.” The team started the tournament with a 20-5 pounding of the Kamloops Dynamite, before shutting out

Enderby 17-0. The Steelers pitching was unhittable all weekend, as coaches Caron, S h a n n o n Ballarin, and Heather McKinnon mixed in a steady dose of right and left handed hurlers to keep the opposition off balance. In the final game of the round robin, the Steelers defeated Westside by a score of 19-4, to secure first spot overall and a bye to the semifinal Sunday. In the noon semi, Trail humbled Castlegar Lightning 11-1 to earn its way into the final against Prince George. It was a dominat-

ing performance from the Steelers, a house league team that was completely unfamiliar with the visting opponents. “I didn’t know what Prince George or Enderby, kind of knew Kelowna, but hadn’t seen Kamloops, and hadn’t seen Cranbrook either, so wasn’t sure what was out there,” Caron added. “I kind of figured we’d do pretty good but didn’t know exactly where (we’d place).”

The team has also been invited to the U12B provincial fastpitch championship after a gold-medal performance at the Summerland tournament in May. “The B’s is a little different, we’re probably going to be lower half, but it’s going to be really good for our girls to see some fast pitching.” The U12B BC Fastpitch Championship goes in Sicamous July 12-14.


BY TIMES STAFF Trail native Kate Weir tees off today with B.C.’s most talented golfers at the Women’s Amateur and Mid-Amateur golf championship at the Pitt Meadows Golf Club. Weir joins a contingent of over 60 golfers at the scenic Lower Mainland course. Sitting at 6,220 yards and playing as a par 74, Pitt Meadows will challenge shot making through its tree-lined fairways and difficult greens. The format for the Women’s Amateur includes both gross and net competition. The net competition is 54 holes; gross is 72 holes with a cut to the top 40 after 36 holes. Zone and Club Team competitions are held concurrently during the first and second rounds of the Championship. The Zone Team gross and net competition uses the combined 36 hole gross and net scores for each zone team member. The Zone Team consists of players who are chosen by each zone in advance of the provincial championship. This year’s championship features one of the strongest fields in recent years with a number of legitimate title favourites prior to the beginning of play. Weir golfed for Douglas College where she was the PacWest golfer of the year in 2011 and 2012, and was named Canadian Colleges Athletic Association All Canadian in 2012.

Miami celebrates championship THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI - LeBron James stood atop a double-decker bus with a cigar in his mouth for the parade, then kissed the championship trophy when the party moved indoors. Shane Battier blew kisses to the crowd, Dwyane Wade raised three fingers aloft and Chris Andersen flapped his arms in a nod to his “Birdman” moniker. By now, the NBA champion Miami Heat have figured out how to enjoy a party, after beating the San Antonio Spurs 95-88 Thursday. Players, families, staff members and friends crammed buses, flatbed trucks and cars for the parade honouring the latest Heat championship, with

the caravan snaking its way through downtown Miami. An estimated crowd of 400,000 turned out on a hot, steamy morning where the heat index reached the mid-90s by 11 a.m. “It’s the ultimate,” James told Sun Sports, the Heat broadcast partner, as he rode along the route. “It’s the ultimate. This is what I came down here, to be able to have a parade at the end of the year. I’m extremely blessed, man. It doesn’t get any better than this.” Several players held supersoaker squirt guns and sprayed water on fans below, confetti blew through the air and dotted the streets, and bands blared as the team rolled past with horns honking. Heat managing gen-

eral partner Micky Arison and team president Pat Riley stood in the front of one bus, while Spoelstra - his championship cap turned backward - waved and clapped at fans, and Wade pointed at people along the route. “Miami parties better than any city in the world,” Spoelstra said as the party moved inside for a rally at the arena the team calls home. “But it took nine months, nine months of incredible sacrifice, not only by these men right here but everybody in our organization, grinding it out every single day, ups and downs, highs and lows. And to have a culmination like Game 7 in front of all of you here is incredible.”

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Turns out zombies and Superman are no match for monsters. Disney’s “Monsters University” is the weekend box-office winner, according to studio estimates released Sunday. The animated family film, which reunites stars Billy Crystal and John Goodman and their characters from the 2001 hit “Monsters, Inc.,” debuted in first place with $82 million, beating out swarming zombies in “World War Z” and Superman himself in “Man of Steel.” “The diversity of this weekend is part of what makes this business so great,” said Dave Hollis, Disney’s head of distribution. “It’s a really extraordinary weekend for the industry.” Especially for “Monsters University,” Pixar’s 14th consecutive film to open in first place. Such expectations of excellence put a “healthy pressure” on filmmakers, Hollis said: “To deliver that kind of quality consistently is a differentiator in the marketplace.” Paramount’s Brad Pitt zombie romp overcame critical advance publicity to open in second place with $66 million. Media reports months ahead of the film’s opening chronicled its problems, including a revamped ending that delayed its release. Rewrites and reshoots sent the film over budget. It ended up reportedly costing more than $200 million to make, but early reviews were positive. “What ‘World War Z’ proves is that all the negative backstory that can be thrown at a movie doesn’t matter if the movie’s good,” said Paul Dergarabedian of box-office tracker Hollywood. com. “I don’t think the audience cares one lick if they had to reshoot the ending if they like the ending and like the movie.” Warner Bros. “Man of Steel” was third at the box office, adding another $41.2 million to its coffers and bringing its domestic ticket sales over $210 million in just the second week of release. The Sony comedy “This Is the End,” which stars Seth Rogen, James Franco and Jonah Hill as versions of themselves trapped in a mansion during the apocalypse, finished in fourth place. Summit Entertainment’s magic-heist thriller “Now You See Me” held onto fifth place.

Sister is using guilt to manipulate family Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

stopped speaking to both of us, even though I have no control over what my brother does. Here’s the real problem. Her husband recently asked both of us for money and, as always, made sure to mention that she might die any moment. They have both used her possible death to guilt us into giving her money. Annie, I love my sister, but it doesn’t seem right that they use this as a weapon against us. It also bothers me that Johanna stops speaking to us if we deny her. None of us is wealthy. If I had the cash, I’d give it to her. But I also understand

Dear Annie: My family is planning a surprise party for my mom’s big birthday. One sibling lives far away, but he has frequent-flier miles and can fly free. Plus, he has friends in the area with whom to stay. The others all live nearby. However, it will cost me more than $2,000 to attend (airfare, hotel and car rental). I also am not eligible for vacation and will be docked pay for the days I miss. I want very much to attend, but my siblings have rented a venue for the party and are hiring caterers, arranging valet parking, etc. I am afraid I will not be able to afford it all. Any suggestions? -- Not Rich Kid Sis Dear Not Rich: Please don’t wait until your siblings send you a bill. Any costs that are expected to be shared should be discussed in advance and agreed to by all parties. Call your siblings and

explain your dilemma. Ask what they expect from you, and tell them what you can afford. Work it out now so there are no hard feelings down the road. Dear Annie: “Disgusted” said that a charitable organization had sent him various

free items, including a check for $2.50. Anyone who receives an unsolicited check in the mail should read the endorsement area carefully. By signing and cashing the “free” check, you may be entering into an agreement to buy or invest

in something in which you have no interest, and it will cost much more than you think. -- Ed in Florida Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

my brother’s point of view. Another sibling took him for a lot of money many years ago, running up thousands of dollars in credit card debt. There is a good possibility that nothing will come of this hobby farm, and we’d all be out a lot of money, and for what? We aren’t young anymore. What do you advise? -- Torn Sister Dear Torn: It’s obvious that you want to be a good sister to Johanna. When someone is having health problems, you should be supportive emotionally, offer to cook meals or help with errands. But there is no obligation to buy them a hobby farm or any other expensive slice of wish fulfillment. Johanna is using her illness to manipulate you, counting on your guilt to get what she wants. Too bad she cannot appreciate what you are already giving her: your love and caring.

Dear Annie: My older sister, “Johanna,” was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer two years ago. Since then, she seems to have one new “lifelong dream” after another that she expects my brother and me to finance. My brother has worked hard his entire life and saved his money. He tried helping Johanna with her first dream (a house) with a loan. Her husband initially told Johanna that my brother refused to help, and Johanna told him to “die a miserable death.” She lightened up when she found out the truth. When the bank didn’t approve the deal, she did repay most of the money. I’ve tried to help her, too, but I could not afford to keep giving her money. Johanna’s latest dream is a hobby farm. She asked my brother to give her $18,000 as an outright gift. He told her no. Johanna
