FortisBC locks out electrical workers BY ART HARRISON Times Staff

In a shocking move, FortisBC locked out members of Local 213 International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Wednesday morning, affecting 225 employees in the B.C. Southern Interior. Those directly affected are electric employees working in generation, transmission, and distribution operations, including employees at Warfield’s System Control Centre such as power line technicians, electricians, and power systems dispatchers. The move came as a surprise to the IBEW union representatives and membership. “I got a phone call at 9 a.m. and

received a letter this morning. They told me they were going to be locking us out.” explained Rod Russell, Local 213 IBEW business manager. “FortisBC felt it was appropriate to take this action at this time to provide reliability and certainty to our customers,” explained Joyce Wagenaar, FortisBC director of communications. “Customers can expect regular electrical services, availability of our contact centre, regular billing, and crews to respond to power outages.” The two sides have been bargaining since January with the existing collective agreement expiring in February. Talks continued until mid-March when, after negotiations and mediation provided no new agreement, the union

filed strike notice. At that point the company applied to the B.C. Labour Relations Board in April to have certain services designated as “Essential Services,” and was granted the designation. FortisBC then, under Section 78 of the B.C. Labour Relations Code, took its offer directly to the voting membership. “Negotiations weren’t successful, mediation wasn’t successful, so they took it to the members,” said Russell. “The Labour Board counted the ballots and there was a 90.4 per cent return with 88.4 per cent of the membership rejected the offer.” In mid-May the union began limited See NO, Page 3

People across the West Kootenay are responding to a Trail family’s call for donations to help Albertans left destitute after devastating floods in Calgary and its outlining areas last week.

Wednesday, as Howell and his family waited for the trailer to arrive, they were busy hauling clean and slightly used wares to the curb. See PROM, Page 3


Boil notice lifted BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

The Village of Montrose officially rescinded its two-year boil water advisory and distributed a “Water Condition Normal” notice to its residents on Wednesday. Since February 2011, the village has been on a “Boil Water Notice” imposed by Interior Health Authority (IHA) because sample tests detected persistent low levels of total coliforms, a bacterial indicator of water contamination. “With successful implementation of water treatment, the village now provides residents See SAMPLES, Page 3

Annual picnic goes indoors By Art Harrison Times Staff

The Teddy Bear Picnic may not have been in the woods Wednesday or even in Gyro Park where it has been held for several years but instead moved indoors to avoid potential downpours. Hundreds of children, parents, and local family service providers congregated on downtown Trail to hold their get together in the Cominco Arena, providing a “free, fun event,” to introduce local families to some of the many services available to the under six crowd in

the Greater Trail area. “Considering the last-minute venue change I think we’ve got a great turnout,” said Success by Six coordinator and party planner, Sonia Tavares. “It’s great to have a dry place, the city was really gracious to work with us for another location like this.” The annual event, organized by Success by Six, brings together community service providers and local organizations to show some of ways they benefit the community, as well as providing entertainment, activities, and crafts for the kids.

Council keeps carbon neutral funds in reserves eye care professionals

By Sheri Regnier Times Staff

The City of Trail has voted to save instead of purchase, carbon offset credits that is. On Monday night, Trail council adopted the Climate Action Reserve Fund bylaw, which allots $30,000 to be transferred into a reserve fund for 2013. “Council has an ongoing commitment to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions,”

for You & Your Family

FREE SIGHT TESTING some restrictions apply

said David Perehudoff, chief administrative officer. “This is a funding source for the city to use when future carbon reducing projects are identified.” Initially in its 2013 budget, the city earmarked those funds to purchase carbon offsets through the Carbon Neutral Kootenays (CNK) for the Darkwoods projects, a nature conservancy program in B.C.’s Selkirk Mountains.

However, earlier this year B.C.’s auditor general, John Doyle, said in a report that the carbon offsets program was “not credible” in achieving the province’s carbon neutral government initiative. Doyle’s scathing review of carbon offset purchases included the Carbon Neutral Kootenays (CNK) consortium and its association with the Darkwoods project. See COUNCIL, Page 3

Prom dresses needed for High River graduates FROM PAGE 1 “Please make sure whatever you donate is clean because I won’t have time to sort through the bags,” he said. The Howells have already received loads of goods including diapers, strollers, cribs, and baby clothes. The shelter needs pretty much everything but has requested one item in particular, said Trina Howell. “Steel-toed boots are needed for not only people in the shelter but the volunteers who are showing up to help with the clean-up,” she said. “A lot of people are showing up to help wearing flip flops, but need to have safe footwear as well.” Response to the Howell’s request for donations has been so overwhelming, that they in turn are now asking for help. “We have had calls from all over the Kootenays from people wanting to donate but not able to get to our house,” said Howell. “Now we are hoping people with trucks will donate some time to make the pickups and bring the items to us.” Donations can be dropped off at the Howell’s residence, 3462 Marigold Drive in Glenmerry. For more information call 368-8755 of visit Howell’s facebook page, “Koots for Calgary.” Trina, mother of twin girls, has taken the plight of High River’s graduating class to heart, and is asking for donations of prom dresses. “The kids in High River have worked so hard to graduate and everything was washed away before their prom,” she said. Howell is asking for dresses and accessories to be packed separately from other donated goods. “So far the response to give has been absolutely inspiring,” she said. “If we can give those kids a prom, then this has all been worth it.”

Samples meet requirements FROM PAGE 1 and visitors with significant improvement to ensure clean drinking water,” said Mayor Joe Danchuk in a media release. Bacteriological results of samples collected from the well sources in the distribution system since the chlorination went online have been satisfactory and met the requirements of the “Drinking Water Protection Regulation,” said Anita

Ely the IHA drinking water officer in the release. “Sample results have demonstrated, thus far, the improvements are working as designed,” said Ely. In January 2012, the village received federal assistance with these infrastructure costs when they were granted $1.3 million from the Gas Tax Fund to replace the failing well and build a chlorination facility.

Council cuts carbon cash FROM PAGE 2 “The decision to proceed with the Reserve Fund followed communication from CNK and its review which indicated that they were no longer recommending the purchase of carbon credits,” explained Perehudoff. Council agreed that they would no longer support the purchase of carbon credits in support of the Darkwoods Project or any other carbon sinks at this time, he said. In 2012, the city purchased

$30,487 in carbon offsets at a reduced rate through CNK. Earlier this year, CNK had recommended the purchase of offsets in support of the Darkwoods project at a maximum cost of $25 per tonne, which translated to $31,850. Carbon offsetting refers to paying others to remove carbon dioxide emitted from the atmosphere, for example by planting trees or by funding carbon projects that should lead to the prevention of future greenhouse gas emissions.

BCTF calls vote on B.C. bargaining By Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. Teachers’ Federation is holding a member vote this week, seeking a mandate to reject “government interference” in provincewide bargaining. Outgoing BCTF president Susan Lambert notified 40,000 public school teachers of the vote in a letter sent out Monday, a copy of which was obtained by Black Press. Teachers have until Friday to vote. “We need to send a strong message to government that teachers will not accept a 10-year scheme to lock in another decade of deteriorating conditions,” Lambert wrote. “The ballot will

read: ‘Do you support our bargaining team and their efforts to achieve a negotiated settlement, and oppose any government interference in the bargaining process? Yes or No’.” The vote signals a reversal of the BCTF position on bargaining. In a submission to the government in December 2012, the union called for “provincial bargaining between the BCTF and government regarding salary, benefits, hours of work, paid leaves, class size, class composition, and staffing levels for specialist teachers,” and “local bargaining of all other items.” BCTF president-elect Jim Iker acknowledged Wednesday that the union called for direct bargaining on

provincial issues late last year, but negotiated a new “bargaining framework” with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association in January. “This ‘agreement in committee’ allowed bargaining to move forward in a quiet, out-of-the-media-spotlight manner and meetings began in February,” Iker said. “The talks since have been the most constructive talks in years and that’s why teachers are hoping the provincial government does not interfere.” The province-wide vote follows Monday’s announcement by Education Minister Peter Fassbender that he has asked for a “pause” in bargaining, to appoint a direct government negotiator with a goal of reaching a 10-year deal.

Council gives green light to deer cull By Danielle Pope Oak Bay News

Oak Bay will be culling its deerly beloved soon, as the region moves forward on a plan to euthanize part of the deer population. More than 40 resi-

dents appeared at a meeting on Monday when council made its decision to become the pilot project for the Capital Regional District’s deer cull. The vote asked the CRD to move ahead with a plan

of action for a cull, and also addressed the 10 requests that were proposed by the Regional Deer Management Strategy. For the first time this year, the newly mandated 20-minute


The perfect retirement lifestyle Seniors want it all: a comfortable home, independence to follow their own schedule and maintain their own interests, safety and security, delicious food and the company of others. And who can blame them? Not long ago, seniors had limited housing options, and few met all of their needs. But when Mountain Side Village opened its doors a new style of seniors housing opened in Fruitvale, providing today’s seniors the opportunity to experience retirement living at its best. Mountain Side Village is a well-crafted seniors’ community with beautiful suites ranging from studios to one and two bedroom layouts. These maintenance-free living suites incorporate supportive features to promote independence and 24-hour emergency monitoring service for added peace of mind. Kitchens include a fridge and stove and each suite is equipped with its own personal heat and air conditioning controls. Beyond the suite is access to a variety of common areas which include a games room, spa room, library, dining room, coffee room, crafts room, hair salon and lounges. All areas are easily accessible, full of interesting people, engaging activities and share a wonderful sense of community. Hospitality services at Mountain Side Village are included in

In addition to the hospitality services, residents can enjoy peace of mind knowing they don’t have to worry about extra bills because all utilities including water, sewer, heat, air conditioning and cable are also included. What’s more, Mountain Side Village’s convenient location enables seniors to easily maintain their relationships with friends and family. And at Mountain Side Village pets are a big part of the family. In this pet friendly building residents are encouraged to bring their pets with them to live. Free from the responsibilities of home-ownership, seniors at Mountain Side Village can enjoy the many other activities and joys that life offers.

Clark agrees to take part in byelection debate By Alistair Waters Kelowna Capital News

Christy Clark is breaking with tradition. The B.C. premier, seeking a seat in the B.C. Legislature by running in the We s t s i d e - K e l o w n a byelection July 10, will do what none of her predecessors in the last 30 years did—participate in an all-candidates’ debate at the riding level. Clark will join the other seven candidates vying for the We s t s i d e - K e l o w n a seat in the debate slated for July 4 in Westbank. Clark agreed to participate Monday, as did NDP candidate Carole Gordon and B.C. Conservative Sean Upshaw. Independents Daylene Van Ryswyk, Silverado Socrates, Korry Zeplik, John Marks and Jag Bhandari of the B.C. Vision Party are also running in the byelection and are expected to participate. The debate is scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m. at the Westbank Lions Community Hall and will be moderated by

Andrew Glass of CBC Radio. For Clark, who plans to also participate in the Westside Daze Parade in Westbank this weekend, as well as serve Canada Day cake on Monday at both the West Kelowna and the Kelowna Canada Day celebrations (different cake-cutting times), participation in the all-candidates’ debate will mark a change in tactics from her failed bid to retain her VancouverPoint-Grey seat in the provincial election May 14. There, she did not participate in any allcandidates’ debates in her riding during the campaign, instead focussing on her role as leader of the B.C. Liberal Party. She travelled the province drumming up support for other Liberal candidates. In the provincial election, she lead her party to a surprise win, with the Liberals taking 49 of the 85 seats in the B.C. Legislature. The NDP took 34 and two independents elected. Clark lost the riding to the NDP’s David Eby by just over 1,000 votes. Clark did participate in two provincial leaders’ debates during the provincial campaign—one on television and one on radio. Meanwhile, two of Clark’s challengers, Gordon and Upshaw, have said they are eager to debate Clark about local issues, with Gordon even accusing Clark of “ducking” her in a news released issued Monday just hours before Clark’s camp confirmed her participation in the July 4 all-candidates debate. Upshaw criticized Clark for not committing to participate in a debate sooner.

He passed comfortably at his home in Christina Lake, with loved ones at his side. Bob was born in Nelson, B.C, October 30, 1928 to Mary and Bert Peebles. Bob is survived by son Rob (Heather) children Kylee, Robbie, Sarah, and great-grandson Odin. Daughter Linda (Pat) children Alison (Jeff), Laura, Mark, Jill and Niece Tracey Johnston. Friend and Loving companion Marge Catalano. Bob’s love of people was reflected in all aspects of his life, family sports, hobbies. Whether it was hunting, fishing, golfing, skiing, hockey, curling, baseball, or wine making and playing pool, and having the gang at the lake. It always involved numerous friends. Bob was predeceased by his wife Belle, father Bert Peebles, mother Mary Johnston, step dad Tommy Johnston and brother Morey Johnston. Bob’s departure will leave a huge void in our lives and hearts but we will fill this space with cherished memories.

As a small child he moved to Salmo with his parents living first at Porcupine then settling on some acreage on what is now Airport Road. He received his education in Salmo and at a very young age started working underground in the local mines. In 1955 he married Maureen Mang and they had three children. He eventually joined the Tunnel & Rock Union

and travelled around the province working on many different highways and hydro electric dam projects as well as on a dam project in Pakistan. Paul loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman and he especially enjoyed camping with his family and friends and did a lot of it over the years often driving into Tye through Blazed Creek in the dark of night having to build makeshift bridges along the way where the water had washed them away. In the 70’s it was his love of the outdoors that inspired him and his friend Pete to purchase a piece of property on Kootenay Lake where they could fish and camp with their families year round. Once retired he would pack up in early spring and head to the lake and stay there until Thanksgiving welcoming anyone who wanted to visit or spend a night or two. It brought him great joy when the kids and the grandkids came to spend weekends camping. Paul is survived by his wife Maureen, his children Brian (Gail) Koochin, Sheri (Wally) Huser and Rodney (Brandy) Koochin, his grandchildren, greatgrandchildren, his sister Dawn (Walter) Kuit, and many nieces and nephews and their children. There will be no service by Paul’s request.

PEOPLE South Africans wait for word on Nelson Mandela THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - South Africans were torn on Wednesday between the desire not to lose a critically ill Nelson Mandela, who defined the aspirations of so many of his compatriots, and resignation that the beloved former prisoner and president is approaching the end of his life. The sense of anticipation and foreboding about 94-year-old Mandela’s fate has grown since late Sunday, when the South African government declared that the condition of the statesman, who was rushed to a hospital in Pretoria on June 8, had deteriorated. A tide of emotional tributes has built on social media and in hand-written messages and flowers laid outside the hospital and Mandela’s home. On Wednesday, about 20 children from a day care centre posted a hand-made card outside the hospital and recited a poem. “Hold on, old man,” was one of the lines in the Zulu poem, according to the South African Press Association. In recent days, international leaders, celebrities, athletes and others have praised Mandela, not just as the man who steered South Africa through its tense transition from white racist rule to democracy two decades ago, but as a universal symbol of sacrifice and reconciliation. In South Africa’s Eastern Cape province, where Mandela grew up, a traditional leader said the time was near for Mandela, who is also known by his clan name, Madiba. “I am of the view that if Madiba is no longer enjoying life, and is on life support systems, and is not appreciating what is happening around him, I think the good Lord should take the decision to put him out of his suffering,” said the tribal chief, Phathekile Holomisa. “I did speak to two of his family members, and of course, they are in a lot of pain, and wish that a miracle might happen, that he recovers again, and he becomes his old self again,” he said. “But at the same time they are aware there is a limit what miracles you can have.” For many South Africans, Mandela’s decline is a far more personal matter, echoing the protracted and emotionally draining process of losing one of their own elderly relatives. One nugget of wisdom about the arc of life and death came from Matthew Rusznyah, a 9-year-old boy who stopped outside Mandela’s home in the Johannesburg neighbourhood of Houghton to show his appreciation. “We came because we care about Mandela being sick, and we wish we could put a stop to it, like snap our fingers,” he said. “But we can’t. It’s how life works.” His mother, Lee Rusznyah, said Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison under apartheid before becoming South Africa’s first black president in all-race elections in 1994, had made the world a better place. “All of us will end,” Thabo Makgoba, the Anglican archbishop of Cape Town, said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. “Ultimately, we are all mortal. At some stage or another, we all have to die, and we have to move on, we have to be recalled by our Maker and Redeemer. We have to create that space for Madiba, to come to terms within himself, with that journey.”

The Harper government’s transparency problem


anadians who don’t regularly track how governments spend money might be surprised to find how myths crop up about government expenditures. Exhibit A is a new report from the Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP) that claims Canada needs even more “industrial policy,” academic lingo for subsidies to business, as if governments had not already long practised such policy, and at a considerable cost to taxpayers. “Industrial policy” is more colloquially known as corporate welfare. Proponents dislike that term as “industrial policy” sounds more technical. It thus conjures up the notion of smart people in government successfully targeting this or that sector for growth. Space does not permit a full analysis of the report, which urges Canadian governments to enact a “strategy” on corporate welfare. (To be fair, the report acknowledges problems with and critiques of the practice.) Let me instead point out that peer-reviewed, academic research on business subsidies cast doubt on the many claims proponents offer up in defence of the practice. One of the more com-

prehensive analyses is from Terry Buss, currently a professor in Australia and formerly with the World Bank. In a review of studies that support industrial policy, Buss found most were industry-sponsored, and/ or never peer-reviewed and thus lacked scientific rigour. That led to correlationcausation errors and faulty claims of increased investment and employment. Such studies, Buss writes, are “based on poor data, unsound social science methods, [and] faulty economic reasoning.” He concludes such reports “cloaked in the legitimacy of what appears to be scientific and economical [rationale], provide politicians and practitioners with justification to award political favors without appearing to be political.” Back to on-the-ground practice in Canada. With the exception of Alberta (where subsidies have been mainly abandoned since 1996 following a disastrous $2.2 billion loss on 1980s-loan guarantees to business), most Canadian governments are too eager to send tax dollars to corporations. (My 2009 report found Canadian governments spent over $200-billion on capital and operating subsidies to business in a 14-year period.) In contrast, govern-



Troy Media

ments are less eager to be frank about the cost of corporate welfare, including chronic government failure on collecting on past loans. This is particularly true of the federal Conservative government. For instance, one retired civil servant, Cliff Oldridge who once worked for the federal Department of Industry, has tried for years to get accurate numbers from his former department. One example: Over the past year, he filed an Access to Information request for repayment forecasts for five Industry Canada programs that authorized $5.3 billion in taxpayer cash to corporations between 1996 since 1996 through to 2011. The department denied Oldridge the repayment forecasts, even though such estimates would not reveal confidential commercial information. There is a reason: the department’s own

history and internal reports reveal its repayment forecasts are routinely revised downward. As proof, consider a 2005 analysis prepared for Industry Canada by a consultant who noted “repayments are typically less than originally forecasted.” The consultant informed Industry Canada its original repayment estimates “totalled about $4.3 billion, while the current repayment estimates total about $2.4 billion, or 55 per cent of the original aggregated estimates.” In other words, the federal government wrote down expected repayments by $1.9 billion. In another example of non-transparency, since 2008 cabinet ministers and MPs from the Harper government have announced $550 million in funding from Industry Canada’s Strategic Aerospace Defence Initiative, the main program for dispensing taxpayer cash to the aerospace industry. Politicians eager to make announcements included Christian Paradis, Jim Prentice, Tony Clement, Kerry-Lynne Findlay and Bob Dechert. Problematically, the accompanying media releases claimed the $550 million given to companies such as Pratt & Whitney, Heroux Devtek, Bristol Aerospace and others, were

in the form of “repayable contributions.” That language, wrongly, gives the public the notion such loans are guaranteed to be repaid one day. In fact, the over-half billion dollars disbursed were “conditionally repayable contributions” in the accurate legal language. The “conditional” descriptor is critical; companies that receive conditionally repayable contributions don’t necessarily have to pay them back. Repayments depend on a variety of factors, known only to departments and recipients. However, we do know – as noted above – that repayments are poor. If the Harper government included the “conditional” word in its public statements, it might flag how billions in taxpayer dollars are sent out with only a chance of a partial return. Canada’s governments have never taken a breather in “industrial policy” and the call for more of it is ill-advised, strategic or not. The Harper government is also rather non-transparent about the chronic corporate welfare already practised by it and previous federal governments. Mark Milke is a Senior Fellow at the Fraser Institute and writes on corporate welfare.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Campfires have positive impacts I am writing to speak my mind about an article that was written on the front page of Tuesday’s Trail Times paper. The article was entitled “Fire ban goes up in smoke” (Trail Times June 25). It was about how Melissa Heart of Fruitvale had approached Fuitvale village council in May requesting a full ban on any outdoor wood burning, like campfires, within the village limits. She stated she wanted the ban because she  and her  four-year-old son suffer from asthma, which she says is caused from wood burning. She submitted information from The Canadian Lung Association to show how bad wood smoke is to a human’s lungs. I will agree with her on the fact that breathing in wood smoke is not a good thing. But that is where my agreeing with her stops. I myself am a long time Fruitvale resident and I personally support campfires and more importantly I support having the pleasure of firing up my backyard fire pit. I bet there are more people in Fruitvale that smoke tobacco each and every day then there are people that burn back yard campfires each and every day yet I don’t see Melissa demanding a ban

on tobacco smoke in Fruitvale. And the truth is that tobacco smoke is much deadlier then campfire smoke. Plus, with campfire smoke, if it blows in your direction, then you get up and move around the fire to where it is not blowing at you. And with campfire smoke you really can’t smell it unless it is blowing right at you. But when it comes to tobacco smoke, it doesn’t matter where  you sit around the person smoking, you can smell the smoke a mile away. There are so many pros to having a campfire in one’s own back yard. For years my family has had many memorable moments sitting around the campfire in the back yard. Plus there is nothing that can compare to a well roasted hot dog or hamburger over an open flame like that of a campfire. And what about those awesome tasty marshmallows? Then there is the romantic aspects of a campfire. I can only imagine how many relationships have be started sitting around a well burning campfire. And what would a cool evening be without the warmth of a campfire. Many people have stayed outdoors late into the evening all because they were

able to stay warm around a campfire. Melissa talks about asthma, well here is one for her. I have a six-year-old niece who also has asthma. In fact she too, just like Melissa’s son was born with asthma. But unlike Melissa’s son my niece loves campfires and more importantly she loves having roasted marshmallows around a campfire. Not once has my niece ever complained about campfire smoke. If I had to tell my niece that she no longer would be able to come over to uncle’s and have a campfire and roast marshmallows with her mom, grandfather, and uncle, she would be totally saddened. I am so proud that the village council of Fruitvale did not ban campfires. To me and many other fellow long time Fruitvale residents, we feel it is our right and privilege to be able to fire up our backyard fire pits and enjoy a Canadian family pastime. Quite frankly if we start banning campfires in our own backyards then we might as well ban them in all  camp grounds  as well. And in all honesty, that is just something that will never happen. Tim Franko Fruitvale

PMO’s letter to papers a big mistake An editorial from the Kamloops Daily News It should be no wonder that we have low voter turnouts when we see the general disrepute that politicians bring to democratic institutions. The federal Conservatives moved quickly to contain controversy surrounding a payment from the Prime Minister’s Office to cover Senator Mike Duffy’s bogus expense claims. Firing chief of staff Nigel Wright was the right thing to do. But when the controversy refused to die down - it has become a matter for police investigation - the PMO lashed out like a cornered animal by sending letters to newspapers pointing out that Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau charged money for speaking engagements. It’s hardly in the same league as corruption in the Senate and possibly the PMO itself,

but it serves as an effective distraction. Move along to the next scandal and leave us alone, folks. Kamloops MP Cathy McLeod defended the letter to newspapers: “(The PMO) shared a letter that was given to them about an issue that was important. And I think certainly it was in the public’s interest to be aware of that situation.” We’ll give her a pass on the public interest part. Certainly, Trudeau’s character and fitness for the possible role of prime minister are of interest to the public, and we can debate how much his speaking fees play a role in that. But where we take exception is with the Prime Minister’s Office sending the letters. This is an institution paid for by taxpayers - not a branch of a political party. We’re fine with Conservatives sending “infor-

mation” to newspapers, but they should do it on their own dime and their own time. The reputation of the PMO has already been damaged by the mishandling of Duffy’s expenses. Turning to partisan character attacks certainly doesn’t help restore that tarnished image. As with the firing of his chief, Prime Minister Stephen Harper has to come clean on this. He should at the very least admit to an error in judgment by his staff and promise to take steps to ensure it doesn’t happen again. This is a matter that transcends the usual mudslinging between political parties that we’ve come to tolerate and endure. This is about the institutions that make our democracy function - and all parties should be resolute in ensuring that their reputations are protected.

Favourable schedule for next season BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

The BCHL released its schedule for the 201314 season with a full 56 games on tap for the Trail Smoke Eaters. The Smokies will play 28 home and 28 away games all starting with the Bauer BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack Sept. 6-8 where they face off against the Langley Rivermen and Cowichan Valley Capitals to start the season. The Smokies home schedule breaks down into 15 Friday night games, seven Saturday, one Sunday, one Monday game during Christmas break, two Tuesday night matches, and two Wednesday nighters. With 23 weekend games scheduled, the Smokies president Tom Gawryletz was satisfied with the result. “Everyone wants a better schedule,” said Gawryletz. “But we got probably as good as we can ask for.” The Smokies then open the season at home with three straight games, starting with two back-to-back against Penticton Vees on Sept. 13-14 at the Cominco Arena. They host the Merritt Centennials Sept. 17, before traveling to Merritt and Prince George for tilts on Sept.

20-21. The busiest month for the Smoke Eaters is October, with 11 games schedule including six road games, and the longest road trip of the season to play Powell River, Port Alberni, and Nanaimo.The Smokies enjoy their longest homestand in November hosting six games while playing just three on the road all month. In January, however, the opposite occurs and Trail will be logging lots of miles with three matches at home and seven away. “We have our usual Island trips, and I think there is one stretch where we play five games in a row on the road, over 10 days or two weeks, but aside from that it’s all pretty balanced out and Bill (Birks, Smoke Eater coach) was happy with it, so we leave it up to the kids now.” In December, the Smokies play five games in 10 days on the road, starting with trips to Penticton and Vernon, on the 11th and 13th, then a return swing to the Island for games against Victoria, 19th, Cowichan, 20th, and then Chilliwack on the 21st. They will close out the season with a homeand-away series against the Warriors on Feb. 28 and Mar. 1

Alumni fundraiser in trouble Low registration threatens golf event


The dugouts emptied after a veritable deluge Tuesday afternoon washed out the West Kootenay Diamondbacks doubleheader against Northwest Christian at Butler Park in the third inning with the Dbacks up 4-0. The teams will finish the game and the second match on July 13 at Butler.

BY TIMES STAFF The Trail Smoke Eaters Alumni and Friends Eighth Annual Golf Fundraiser is in jeopardy, as organizers scramble to get residents and hockey fans to register. With the Monday registration deadline looming for the July 5 and 6 event, Trail Smoke Eater president Tom

Gawryletz says that there just hasn’t been enough interest to justify going ahead with the event, which is generally one of the biggest fundraisers for the Smoke Eater hockey club. “We’ll wait until Monday, and we hope those people who have committed (verbally) will sign up this weekend, otherwise we’ll have to cancel.” Organizers need to have an idea on numbers in order to book caterers and tee times

at the golf course. The event includes a Friday night meet and greet, live and silent auctions, a $5,000 putting contest, and the chance to win a Ford F-150 hole-in-one prize valued at $50,000. The 18-hole, three-man scramble is a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Saturday, culminating in a barbecue dinner with over $5,000 in prizes. For more info visit


Orioles drop two to Honkers, ready for Blast BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

The AM Ford Trail Orioles traveled a rough road to Seattle over the weekend, but are looking to have a blast this weekend. The Orioles dropped a doubleheader to the Northwest Honkers in Pacific International League action Saturday by 6-3 and 9-3 scores, before dropping a pair of close matches to the semi-pro Thurston County Senators, 3-1 and 2-1. “It was a good weekend but disappointing at the same time,” said playercoach Jim Maniago. “We were in every game but lost all four.” Despite the losses the O’s are looking forward to the upcoming Canada Day Weekend Baseball Blast in Kelowna this weekend where 16 teams play for $16,000 in prize money.

“We got a good draw, if we play decent we should make the money round,” said Maniago. In the first game against the Honkers Saturday, Trail was up 2-1 in the fifth but gave up two runs in the bottom half of the inning to fall behind 3-2. Kellen Jones pitched well for the O’s giving up three runs on eight hits over five innings, but the wheels fell off in the sixth and the Honkers counted six. “It wasn’t like Scott (Davidson) got hit hard really, they just seemed to have balls fall in everywhere,” said Maniago. James Oliver went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored for the O’s, while Maniago also went 2-for-3 at the plate with an RBI. The second game

against the Honkers saw the Orioles out-hit them 13-7, yet the O’s couldn’t capitalize stranding 13 runners in the game while the Honkers seemed to score on every opportunity. It remained a tight 2-1 game up until the seventh, but another big inning swamped the Orioles, as they scored four in the seventh to go up 6-1. Trail would reply with two more in the ninth, but it was too little too late. “That might be the one

thing we aren’t doing right now, cashing in on opportunities and getting clutch hits with guys in scoring position.” Kissock went six strong innings, giving up just two runs, one earned, on three hits, two walks and five strike outs. Kyle Mace went 3-for-5 at the plate with an RBI, and Joey Underwood and Dallas Calvin had two hits on the night. The Orioles were in tough against the Senators of Thurston County,


Sunday, a team that had just beaten defending PIL champions the Seattle Studs 8-3 the week before. The Senator pitcher was throwing fire, ceding just two hits in the 3-1 victory. Still, Scott Robertson went toe-to-toe with the Sens batters and only an error that led to two runs proved the difference. “Robertson pitched a complete game against a very good team, we just didn’t get any runs for him, said Maniago.”

The second game Calvin had a stellar performance on the mound, but little run support again proved the Orioles undoing, in the 2-1 loss. Mace had another good night at the plate going 2-for-3, while Robertson was 2-for-4. “We’re hanging in there with some pretty good teams we just can’t seem to take the next step and win some of those tight games,” added Maniago.

Blue Jays flying high


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - R.A. Dickey pitched a two-hitter for his first complete game of the year, Jose Reyes went 0 for 4 in his return from a two-month layoff and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-0 Wednesday for their 12th win in 14 games, to push them above .500. Dickey (7-8) retired his first 13 batters before James Loney grounded a single between shortstop and third base with one out in the fifth.

Thursday, June 27, 2013 Trail Times

Yunel Escobar had a one-out single in the sixth, then was erased when Matt Joyce hit a double-play grounder. Dickey struck out six and walked one. The knuckleballer pitched a one-hitter for the New York Mets against the Rays on June 13 last year, allowing B.J. Upton’s first-inning infield single. Adam Lind and Edwin Encarnacion homered for the Blue Jays, who had lost two in a row after tying their team record of 11 straight wins.

O’s open vs Calgary

FROM PAGE 9 “We’re close to being a very good team but can’t get over that hump,” said Maniago. “Sometimes it just takes one big win and things turn around, hopefully that comes this weekend.” At the Canada Day Blast tournament the Orioles open against the Calgary Red Birds on Friday at 1 p.m., then play Okanagan Selects Saturday at 3:30 p.m., and Burnaby Collegiate 8 a.m. Sunday, before the playoffs start. The championship game goes at 2:45 p.m. Monday at Elks Stadium.

NBA draft

Number one pick, unsure thing THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK Nerlens Noel is coming off a major knee injury. Alex Len is in a walking boot. One of them could be the No. 1 pick today in an NBA draft that appears short on stardom, and neither looks ready to get his career off to a running start. “This draft is really unpredictable, a lot of guys with injuries and you don’t have any, like, LeBron James,”

Len said Wednesday. “So it’s going to be interesting.” Ten years after James climbed on stage to start a draft that goes down as one of the best in recent memory, the No. 1 pick again belongs to Cleveland. The Cavaliers won’t find anyone who can play like James on the court - if they keep the pick - and even the climbing the stage part will be a challenge for the big men who opened their college seasons against each other and are competing again now. Noel tore the ACL in his left knee on Feb. 12, ending his lone season at Kentucky. The six-foot-11 freshman led the nation in shot blocking and his conference in rebounding, but hasn’t been able to show the Cavaliers if his offensive game has grown. “I wanted to do more. Unfortunately I got hurt, but I mean I definitely felt right before I got injured

I was really coming along as a player and just really coming into my own during that part of the season,” Noel said. Nor has Len, but that hasn’t stopped the 7-1 centre from the Ukraine who spent two seasons at Maryland from climbing into the mix at No. 1. His left foot started bothering him around February, and he found out after the season that it was a stress fracture. It’s a class that won’t draw any comparisons to the one that James led, which featured future Miami Heat teammates Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, along with NBA scoring champion Carmelo Anthony among the first five picks. Orlando has the No. 2 pick, followed by Washington, Charlotte and Phoenix. There has been speculation the Cavs are open to dealing the pick, something teams rarely consider in a year with a clear-cut No. 1.

genealogical websites. I wrote this woman a polite email and informed her of the identity theft and our family’s request that our privacy be respected. I asked that she remove the family photos and history from the site. She wrote back a scathing email, calling me “rude” and saying she did not have to be at my beck and call. She finally agreed to remove the information, but when I checked later, she had actually added more. This “cyber-bully’s” hateful words and total breach of trust have made me physically and emotionally ill. She is a manipulative, lying, exploitative, ungrate-

these photos and history are out there, and more importantly, you don’t know what else this woman might do with the information. We hope your letter serves as a warning to anyone who sends such personal data to people they barely know (and even those they do). Everything can be posted online and made accessible to anyone who looks. Dear Annie: My husband has a habit of interrupting me while I’m still talking. He anticipates what I’m going to say and will answer before I’m finished speaking. If I ask what he wants from the grocery store, he will start telling me while I’m still asking, which means I can’t hear what he says. This is both annoying and rude, but he doesn’t get it. Any ideas? -- Frustrated in Louisville Dear Frustrated: If you have told him how annoying this is and he is unwilling to

work on it, we recommend you change your response so you are less aggravated. Stop speaking when he starts. Don’t correct him if he “anticipates” wrongly. You can then respond to or ignore what he says, depending on your mood, but try not to get

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

Dear Annie: A distant relative, whose family I had never heard of, contacted me on the Internet begging for family photos and history for her grandmother. Out of the goodness of my heart and at great expense, I took a week and sorted through ancient photos and family history, scanned and labeled the photos, and emailed them to her. However, when I later checked, I saw those photos and family history online. I didn’t recognize any connection between her family and mine, although she insists there is one. Furthermore, our family is very private and has no interest in having our history and photographs published on the Internet for anyone to see. Last year, when my cousin had his identity stolen, the authorities said identity thieves often get information (like the mother’s maiden name) from




YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Friday, June 28, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be patient with siblings, neighbors and daily contacts today, because others are sensitive and might take issue with something you say. (Not everyone is as bold in his or her speech as you are.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Squabbles about possessions or money might erupt today. Keep in mind that this is a brief influence, and if you are patient, it will just pass away and be forgotten. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be patient in dealing with bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police today. You might lose it while talking to an authority figure. (How smart would that be?) CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today, because people are argumentative. In fact, some are just looking

for an excuse to fight. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a poor day to discuss issues regarding inheritances, shared property, taxes and debt, because people are too touchy. Postpone these discussions for the weekend or late next week. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Lighten up and be tolerant with partners and close friends. Why fight or squabble? Anger serves no purpose except to make everyone miserable. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Remember your objective at work today. This means you will gain nothing by fighting with a co-worker. After all, you have to get along day after day, right? SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Parents need to be patient with children today. Similarly, lovers need to be patient with romantic partners, because today it’s easy

to be irritated. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Avoid domestic squabbles by demonstrating grace under pressure. It takes only one in the family to promote good feelings, and that person can be you. (Be a role model.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Rash actions or hasty words might get you in hot water today. Avoid airing

your grievances with family members, because this is not the day to do it. Mum’s the word. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Think twice before you speak or do anything today, because your own feelings of irritation might trigger an accident. Lighten up and go with the flow. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Don’t exaggerate your

response to others or fall into victim mode today. (You know who you are.) Many people feel irritated and frustrated. And so it goes. (But this is very brief. No biggie.) YOU BORN TODAY You are witty and entertaining, in large measure, because you react to life with your emotions. You’re all heart. When you want something, you go after it. You’re a natural leader, and you like to be
