Skool-Aid campaign helps take bite out of school costs BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff


Sixteen-year-old Chris Tremblay (background) and Jill Kinahan, 19, cleaned the skinners at the Warfield Centennial Pool Monday, prior to the long-overdue opening of the outdoor facility. Users were welcomed with a free swim Monday, when pool temperatures were cooler than regular, and invited back for its official launch today.

Warfield pool finally open for business BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

The water may have been cool but Warfield residents got to take their first dip this summer into the Centennial Pool Monday. Staff was prepping the outdoor pool for a free swim then, prior to launching the longawaited opening with a pool party today. “I'm really excited,” pool manager Christina Lupieri, 23, said Monday. “It's awesome that it's finally opening, we've been waiting for this for a really long time.” The pool that was scheduled to open June 5 is making up for lost time with extending its hours into early fall, closing Sept. 14. Work has been slow moving since late April, when village works crews began stripping off the old tiles in anticipation of a full

resurfacing of the 46-year-old pool. “People have actually been really patient and I've really been making a huge effort to educate them as much as possible,” said Lupieri. “We haven't had too many people really mad, everyone is disappointed but I mean, we're all disappointed that the pool hasn't been open.” Two lesson sets and a couple “fun days” were cancelled, along with community rentals, because of the prolonged construction. Lupieri has had to rewrite the facility's brochure about eight times, one of the many administrative tasks she's acquired. The manager became a community liaison over the course of the construction, giving out her cell phone as a contact for those looking for more information. She's pleased that the anticipation is over and that

she'll finally be able to provide hours promised to her 11 employees. The last two weeks, staff has picked up part-time work cleaning and painting the grounds but prior to that many had to look for more work or get by with less money in their pockets. Senior life guard Britanny Mock, 19, thankfully was employed at the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre before this summer job popped up and was able to secure some hours there over the duration of renovations. “We're making sure the pool chemicals are balanced, that's our main (goal), and we have our Dolphin (robotic cleaner) in getting the bottom of the pool clean and then we're hosing and sweeping around the deck See GAMES, Page 3

It takes a community to raise a child, and with this mantra in hand, the Skool-Aid program is launching its fourth year in providing school supplies to Greater Trail children in low-income families. The Skool-Aid initiative began as a Catholic based volunteer-run effort and has grown into a community supported program, supplying kids with everything from crayons to computer paper. With the average cost of school supplies ranging from $50 to $70, not including gym strip or back pack, a return to school can incur costs that some families will struggle to pay. This year, Skool-Aid raised $8,000, almost half received through people in the community. “We have a loyal group of individuals who consistently give to our program,” said organizer Louise McEwan. “It really does illustrate how this program touches people and how they want to help kids reach their potential.” In addition, Skool-Aid received $1,000 from Teck Trail Operations; $2,000 from BC Hydro Employees Community Services Fund; $700 LeRoi Community Foundation; and $500 from the Kiwanis. This year, the program will provide supplies to 140 students, although that number may grow by September. “The need is quite spread out and it is quite possible we will get more requests,” she said. “We help any child in any grade in any school in the Greater Trail area.” And, with the school district See NEW, Page 3

Sampling continues on Kootenay waterways Officials keeping an eye on water following fuel spill The Nelson Star Extensive sampling of water courses in the Slocan Valley continues following the fuel spill in Lemon Creek on Friday. Visual inspection of the Slocan, Columbia and Kootenay rivers and Lemon Creek has occurred from the air and by boat. “Little evidence of fuel was visible on the Columbia River and one or two relatively small isolated pockets were observed on the Kootenay River,” the Regional District of Central Kootenay stated in a press release issued Monday. “There is evidence of fuel still on the Slocan River, particularly in back eddies, log jams and gravel bars. Because of this continuing presence, the Do Not Use order placed by Interior Health remains in effect for surface source users downstream of Lemon Creek.” Analysis of sampling is being expedited and and the RDCK says it should be available within a day or two. The various agencies along with the company – Executive Flight Centre – are working at providing water to those who are unable to resource alternate sources for everyday use.

for today at 7 p.m. at the Winlaw Community Hall. Representatives of the agencies involved and the company will speak and address questions. Evacuations orders were carried out and later rescinded after a tanker truck carrying 35,000 litres of A1 jet fuel spilled its load into Lemon Creek Friday afternoon. The truck was en route to a refuel site for helicopters fighting the Perry Ridge wildfire when it went off Lemon Creek forest service road and landed on its side in the creek. Residents suggest it took a wrong turn, because the base camp was not accessed via the logging road. Judy Derco of Lemon Creek Lodge said the incident happened around 3:30 or 4 p.m. Friday. The highway was closed for a while, she said, but motorists were later told to proceed at their own risk. Traffic is now being allowed to leave the valley, but not to enter. Slocan resident Eric Winje who passed through the area this afternoon told the Star that a forestry employee on the Perry Siding bridge was watching for fuel coming down the Slocan River, which Lemon Creek flows into. The fuel smell was very strong, Winje confirmed. “When we went across the bridge we rolled the window down and could smell it,” he said. “But we couldn’t see any sheen on the water.”

It’s not clear why the tanker tipped, but it remains in the creek. The driver was airlifted out with minor injuries, Winje said. Lemon Creek forest service road is one of the access routes to Kokanee Glacier Provincial Park, but was closed beyond a certain point due to washouts and slides. “Although much of the fuel has vaporized and air/water sample levels are within prescribed standards, the Interior Health Authority has a order in place that impacts surface water users south of Lemon Creek within the geographic area covered by the evacuation order,” the regional district said in a news release Sunday. People are advised not to drink surface water, irrigate their crops, or swim in the Slocan River. “The Ministry of Environment along with other agencies continues to remediate the impacts of the fuel spill and monitor water courses and air quality throughout the geographic evacuation order area,” the RDCK added. “The Regional District of Central Kootenay is very appreciative of the efforts of the many volunteer fire departments and the numerous agencies and individuals who assisted in responding to the incident and subsequent evacuation of residents.”

Cranbrook Daily Townsman

The man charged over a carjacking near Creston and police chase in Cranbrook last October will have his court case moved to Port Coquitlam. Nickolas Bullock, 26, appeared in Port Coquitlam Criminal Court on Friday and successfully petitioned to have his case, with charges in both Port Coquitlam and Cranbrook, heard in the lower

mainland. Bullock was arrested in Cranbrook on October 2, 2012, after a dramatic pursuit by a police officer ended in a residential driveway. Earlier that night, a Creston man stopped to pick up two hitchhikers between Creston and Yahk. According to the driver, when the pair entered the car, the male hitchhiker allegedly assaulted the driver and stole the vehicle. RCMP set up a road block south


of Cranbrook and an officer spotted the stolen vehicle entering Cranbrook later that evening. The driver did not stop and the RCMP officer pursued the vehicle. The chase ended in an encounter on the outskirts of Cranbrook, where RCMP said the officer discharged his weapon, injuring the suspect. Bullock was allegedly on the run from Port Coquitlam with his 17-year-old girlfriend. The youth,

who cannot be named because she is under 18, was returned to her mother’s care in Port Coquitlam pending proceedings in juvenile court. On Friday, Cranbrook prosecutor Lynal Doerksen appeared via video to the courtroom where Bullock was appearing on 17 charges, including robbery, assault with a weapon, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and flight from a peace officer in Cranbrook.

Meanwhile, the pool’s staff room looked like a science lab as Lupieri balanced chemicals to ensure the water was healthy before opening the doors Monday afternoon when the water temperature was estimated to be about 23 C, down from its nearly 28 C that it normally sits at. But after filling the pool with water on Saturday and Sunday, the facility was left with about 24 hours for the water temperature to fluctuate, when staff regularly waits three days. “That’s why the free swim (Monday),” explained Lupieri, adding that today’s (regular rate) party will include games and free freezies. The public has been kept up to date through the facility’s Facebook page and some residents may have caught a message that read “pool opens in one week” that was painted on the pool floor temporarily while staff completed a paint job. The water was looking inviting Monday afternoon when residents passed by to confirm the pool’s hours. “I think there is a lot of community support behind it, I find,” added Mock. “A lot of people are very keen on coming here and it’s a good atmosphere being outdoors.” She’s happy to work on her tan at her first outdoor lifeguarding job, while her co-worker Chris Tremblay, 16, was keen to be on deck after just completing his lifeguard training. Village councillor Jim Nelson, a former longtime mayor, was also pleased to see the construction finally complete. He made a point of stopping by Monday. Warfield planned to resurface the outdoor pool, which was built in 1967, to celebrate Warfield’s Silver anniversary. The process involved stripping off decades worth of layers of thick, pool paint to get at the bare concrete underneath, repairing and sealing the concrete surface and then applying the new layer of the familiar pool paint. The pool is open from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekends. Hours will change to noon to 6 p.m. from Sept. 1-14.

Officer not guilty of perjury in Taser death THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - An officer who was among the four Mounties at the Vancouver airport the night Robert Dziekanski died has been found not guilty of lying at a public inquiry into the Polish immigrant’s death. Const. Bill Bentley bent over and cried into a tissue after the verdict. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Mark McEwan, who heard the case without a jury, said for a conviction, the Crown had to prove that Bentley knowingly made a false statement, but prosecu-

tors failed to do that. Bentley was the first to be tried for perjury for his testimony during the 2009 inquiry seeking to find answers about what happened the night the officers responded to a call about a distraught man throwing furniture in an arrivals area. Dziekanski died on the airport floor in October 2007 after what Bentley said in his notes was a confrontation in which Dziekanski came at the officers screaming and brandishing a stapler before he had to be zapped with a Taser and wrestled to the ground.

But a video, taken by a traveller, contradicted some of Bentley’s notes and statements. The Crown argued at trial that Bentley and the other officers colluded on their stories to homicide investigators and then lied at the inquiry to cover up the deception. During Bentley’s trial, the Crown called several witnesses from the airport and prosecutors relied on a comparison of the police officers’ notes and statements. Prosecutors tried to prove the collusion by relying on similarities in the four officers’

notes and statements. But there were early indications McEwan had doubts about the Crown’s arguments. During final submissions, McEwan interrupted the Crown several times, raising doubts about the Crown’s theory, and noting civilian witnesses made the same sort of mistakes as the Mounties. “They don’t have the exact same stories - I’ve compared them,” said McEwan. “In context, they sound like four stories told by four people who saw the same thing. There are some differences.”

Lawsuit launched over smart meters THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - The fight against the installation of BC Hydro’s smart meters was given a new jolt with the launch of a class-action lawsuit on Friday by a yoga instructor from Saltspring Island, B.C. Nomi Davis is suing BC Hydro for installing the device last year on her property even though she refused to have one. Court documents say Davis was concerned about the device’s high-frequency emissions, and when she asked the company to remove it, Hydro instead threatened to cut off the electrical supply. The document said the installation of the meter, which measures power consumption, caused Davis “emotional distress,” because it “interfered with the quiet enjoyment of her property,” which she used to host yoga and meditation retreats. The meter has “disrupted the integrity of the space as a sanctuary for meditation, peace of mind and resonant attunement,” the court document states. Opponents of smart meters claim the device’s radio waves, which help transmit data to BC Hydro computers and allow consumers to monitor their energy use, have health risks. Davis’ lawyer, David Aaron, said in a news release the home is a private domain, where owners should have control over “environmental exposures generated from one’s own domestic dwelling.” He alleged that BC Hydro unlawfully leveraged its “monopoly powers” to violate that right by imposing the smart meter on Davis. However, BC Hydro said in a written statement it was obligated to replace Davis’ meter with a smart meter due to safety concerns. “In the case filed today, the meter’s glass was broken and could have compromised the safe delivery of power to the customer,” said Greg Reimer, executive vice-president of Transmission and Distribution. Reimer noted that B.C.’s court of appeal and utilities commission have previously dismissed legal challengers related to the installation of smart meters. Davis’ lawsuit demands that BC Hydro remove meters from homes where people don’t want them. Davis indicated she wants other people who feel the same to join the lawsuit, but a judge must first approve an class-action application. Earlier this month, B.C.’s energy minister announced that people who want to opt out of smart meter installation can, but it will cost them about an extra $20 a month plus other maintenance fees. The meters measure residents’ power consumption and then use wireless signals to beam that information back to BC Hydro, which says the new technology will make the province’s energy grid more efficient, sustainable and better able to respond to outages. Hydro has said it has no plan to roll back its smart meter program. B.C.’s energy ministry has said in the past the smart meters allow residents and businesses to save money by making choices about how they manage their electricity consumption. The B.C. Utilities Commission and the B.C. Court of Appeal have denied an effort in the past to force Hydro to stop installing smart meters. The government and Hydro have also said smart meters only broadcast several times a day, and that living next to a smart meter for 20 years would expose a resident to the same level of radiation as a 30-minute cellphone call.

National The Bay buys Saks THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Hudson’s Bay Co. (TSX:HBC) says it will open up to seven full-line Saks stores in Canada and about two dozen locations under a discount banner once it completes a US$2.9-billion friendly deal to acquire the U.S. luxury retailer. “We’re going to move as quickly as we can,” Richard Baker, HBC’s chairman and chief executive, told analysts during a conference call on Monday. “We think there’s a lot of opportunity for us to accomplish Briefs that rollout relatively quickly.” Saks currently operates 42 stores, including its flagship Saks Fifth Avenue in New York. HBC says it may transform some its The Bay stores into Saks locations, open new Saks stores in existing buildings or, in some cases, build new stores from the ground up. The retailer says it also plans to open up to 25 Saks Off Fifth discount stores in Canada and is eyeing the possibility of starting a real estate investment trust. The combined portfolio of The Bay stores in Canada, Lord & Taylor in the US Northeast and Saks locations would comprise more than 32 million square feet of retail space, said Baker. “The combination of Saks and HBC real estate creates an unmatched, highly valuable North American retail real estate portfolio, with a coast-to-coast footprint serving three strong banners,” Baker said .


Legal woes coming pile up for rail company THE CANADIAN PRESS LAC-MEGANTIC, Que. - The legal noose continues to tighten around companies connected to the deadly Quebec rail derailment. The Quebec government issued a legal notice today demanding that two U.S. petroleum firms and the railway involved in the Lac-Megantic crash foot the entire bill to clean up and restore the local environment. Environment Minister Yves-Francois Blanchet says the July 6 tanker-train derailment that released 5.7 million litres of crude oil into the air, soil and water is perhaps the province’s worst-ever environmental disaster. The companies named in the lawyer’s letter are Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway, Western Petroleum Company and World Fuel Services. All three firms are already facing several wrongful-death lawsuits in the U.S. linked to the disaster - while the embattled MMA is also named in a proposed class-action suit. The town of Lac-Megantic sent MMA a legal notice last week, calling on it to reimburse the municipality $4 million after the company allegedly failed in its duty to pay cleanup workers. The Maine-based railway asked the town to wait until Tuesday for its response to the legal notice. The derailment and subsequent explosions killed an estimated 47 people and levelled dozens of buildings in the community’s downtown core. Blanchet says Quebec taxpayers will not be forced to pick up the tab for the massive environmental mop-up and rehabilitation. He insists the province will take necessary legal action if the companies don’t pay up.


Flood assistance won’t cover fancy items THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - The Alberta government says homeowners and small businesses affected by last month’s severe flooding can expect a rebuild, but they won’t be entitled to hardwood floors or granite counter tops. The province announced new details to its flood assistance program on Sunday, noting that all homeowners who qualify will get assistance for repairs, or a complete rebuild if that turns out to be cheaper. But it says its funding formula will only apply for what it calls “basic levels of finish,” which it says will cover things like vinyl siding, asphalt shingles, “basic quality” carpet and laminate counter tops. The announcement also states there will be funding to protect basements for homes and businesses in flood fringe areas by raising electrical

outlets and panels, and for making repairs with materials that are easier to clean. The province estimates it could cost $10,000 or more to repair or rebuild a basement with such measures instead of traditional materials and methods. The policy says homeowners who don’t take such steps to protect their properties will not be able to get caveats that would make them ineligible for future flood assistance removed. “We have a responsibility to put protective measures in place for future buyers, realtors, lenders and insurers,” Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths said Sunday in a news release. “This is another step toward rebuilding safer communities.” The government has already said it would continue to provide relief to resi-

dents and businesses in the so-called flood fringe, where the risks are lower, but only if municipalities took steps to mitigate risks. It will introduce legislation this fall that would ban new development in floodplains. Griffiths said that the province’s disaster recover program will work with a homeowner’s existing insurance, but will not replace it. The standards for flood mitigation in basements that were announced Sunday stipulate that wall openings be sealed where piping, wiring and conduits come through, to prevent seepage. The policy also requires that main electrical panels be modified so that basement circuits affected by flood water can be isolated from the remainder of the home or business, allowing faster restoration of power to

a property. Plumbing must also be protected from backflow from public sewers. “This funding formula is fair to our affected homeowners and provides them the information needed to make smart choices about their future,” Griffiths said in the release. The province has said it will provide assistance this time to those who choose to rebuild in the riskiest areas, but will not provide any compensation for future flood damage in those zones. The province says an advisory panel that was struck earlier this month is doing more work to determine an approach to community flood mitigation. Some homes were destroyed and others severely damaged by the flooding that severely affected a number of Alberta communities.

Ontario jail over-crowding at six-year high THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Nearly half of Ontario’s jails are overcrowded, a sixyear high that sees cells meant for two people at times hold three or more as the province struggles with a rising tide of inmates who have yet to have their day in court. Statistics by the Ministry of Community Safety and Corrections

reveal that on an average day last year 14 of the province’s 29 jails held more prisoners than they were designed for. The jump in overcrowding comes as no surprise to Shawn, who was recently released from the jam-packed Elgin-Middlesex Detention Centre in London, Ont., after 18 months in pretrial cus-

tody. He says overcrowding forced him to flop down on a narrow stretch of floor between two occupied beds in a cramped seven-by-two metre cell. Lying on a thin, worn mattress he had to rest his head next to the shared toilet. “If you’re sleeping people step on you, then if they’re urin-

ating they splash on you,” said Shawn, 35, who has been in the London jail more than a dozen times and gave only his first name for fear of retribution. Shawn said cramming three inmates into a space meant for only two makes it easy for minor disputes between cellmates to

escalate into outright violence. “If there’s only two of you then one guy can go to the door and cool down, (but) when you’ve got three there’s nowhere to go,” added Shawn, who is in the early stages of a lawsuit against the province over his treatment in jail.

Crash investigation will take months THE CANADIAN PRESS LLOYDMINSTER, Sask. - Saskatchewan RCMP believe it will take at least three months before an investigation is complete into the deaths of six teens in a car crash. Cpl. Rob King said Tuesday that investigators are talking with witnesses and friends who saw the teens before they packed into a two-door car and headed out on a rural road early Saturday. The car collided with a semi truck at an intersection south of Lloydminster, a city on the AlbertaSaskatchewan boundary. Both vehicles slammed into a nearby slough. The truck rolled onto its roof and the car sank to the bottom. The victims - three girls and three boys were between 13 and

17. Investigators have briefly talked with the truck driver, the only one who survived the crash, said King. But they still have a lot of work to do to piece together what happened, he said. That includes trying to determine which teen was driving the car or if that teen had a driver’s licence. “The autopsies might hopefully give us some answers about that. The reconstructionist report might

shed some light.” Toxicology tests have also been ordered to determine if the teens had been drinking. In the end, said King, the evidence may not yield all the answers. “We want to try to get as 100 per cent positive as possible but we might never get there.” Some of the investigators are describing the crash as the worst they’ve ever seen, he added.

NDP soul searching going nowhere


.C. NDP president Moe Sihota says an external review of the party’s performance in the May election will “look very much at the DNA of the NDP.” Early signs are not encouraging. Start with the five-member panel announced to conduct the review. The required “labour” representation is in the person of Cindy Oliver, president of the union representing college and university instructors, and Andy Ross, ex-president of COPE 378, which represents BC Hydro employees among others. Another appointee is NDP MP Jinny Sims, a former president of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. If the party wants to further solidify its image as a lobby group for pensionsubsidized government unions, it’s off to a great start. The terms of reference defy parody. In addition to unions, the panel required

“more than one woman.” A sub-committee may be struck, if it has representation from “youth, women, labour, visible minority, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisesexual, transgendered, questioning).” I presume the party’s lengthy antiharassment policy will be read out to begin all meetings. Once they finally get down to business, the list of election campaign details they must examine is long. In addition to that, they must review “stakeholder relations including community leaders, business, social movement, ethnic communities, environmental movement, affiliated unions and the labour movement.” One of the excuses offered by leader Adrian Dix for the party’s defeat was the loss of 40,000 jobs in the B.C. forest industry. The suggestion is that those people left for Alberta, and if they were



still here, they would have voted NDP. That presumed solidarity has never existed in the private sector, and in fact the highest-paid union workers have good reason to vote for lower taxes. To confirm B.C. and Canada’s “progressive” tax system, all they have to do is look at their pay stubs. The mandate for this review mentions not one actual public policy issue. Here’s one the committee might kick around. Having lost the 2009 election campaigning against the carbon tax, the NDP is now calling

for it to be increased and extended to greenhouse gases produced by industrial process emissions. A simple example is a cement kiln, which burns fuel to reach the temperature at which the components are partially burned and cement is produced. Cement manufacturers pay carbon tax on the fuel, whether it’s natural gas or shredded tires, but not on the process. B.C. cement makers are already pleading for relief, because the fuel-intensive process puts them at a price disadvantage with U.S. and Chinese producers. Further unilateral tax action by B.C. would only further increase imports, and potentially push B.C. firms out of business. Goodbye unionized private sector jobs. Dix’s last foray in question period before the summer legislature session adjourned was a demand for the govern-

ment to order BC Ferries to build its next three ships in B.C. Leave aside the NDP’s uncritical zeal for state control, and their ill-fated experiment with aluminum fast ferries. The most likely bidder for this work is Seaspan, with shipyards in Esquimalt and North Vancouver. Seaspan is hiring almost 2,000 people to build ships for the Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard. It will be flat out to get that done, and the company president can’t yet say if it has the capacity and skilled labour to bid on BC Ferries ships too. Seaspan has to operate in the real world of limited resources. So does the NDP, but it’s not clear if they can find a way out of their thicket of special interests and stale economic notions.

‘Breaking Bad’ documentary will recount show’s history

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - When “Breaking Bad” ends this season, fans will be left with a documentary that recounts the show’s history. Series creator Vince Gilligan says the film is comprehensive and, in his words, really good. Gilligan predicted that most fans will “dig the ending” when “Breaking Bad” concludes its run later this year. The second half of the show’s final season begins Aug. 11 on AMC. The series debuted in 2008.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

A tip of the hat to ‘Bottle Bill’ I would like to sing the praises of my friend “Bottle Bill”. Bill works hard to gather many of the pop cans and plastic bottles that would normally go in the landfill in the downtown core.

No one walks this earth a saint, and the gossip line tries to confirm this daily. But what the gossip line also does is try and destroy people's reputations. With lies and half truths. Recently I heard an attempt on Bill's reputation and it pro-

voked this letter. Personally, Bill has found my stolen helmet and has treated me with respect. So kudos to a guy who tries and has a better work ethic than many. Don Birkenes, Trail

Democracy be with the process of rewriting damned: the “deep state”, that the constitution to remove the permanent collusion between Islamic bits inserted last year well-fed Egyptian soldiers and by Morsi’s party and hold a bureaucrats and the foreign


military and commercial interests who feed them, is making a come-back. And the political idiots on Tahrir Square are cheering it on. Either way, the army’s political project now requires the massive use of force: the supporters of the Brotherhood must be driven from the streets, by murder if necessary, and its leaders must be criminalised and banned. And other political idiots, in Washington, London and Paris, are going along with that too. President Barack Obama is uncomfortable with what is happening, but he won’t call it a coup because then he would be obliged to cut off $1.5 billion a year in aid to the Egyptian army. Instead, he calls it a “post-revolution transition”, and promises that the United States will be a “strong partner to the Egyptian people as they shape their path to the future.” His loyal sidekick William Hague, the British Foreign Secretary (also known as “Tonto”), asks the Egyptian authorities politely to refrain from violence because “now is the time for dialogue, not confrontation.” ‘Fraid not. Now is the time for murder, and foreign democrats are holding the murderer’s coat. Egypt is the biggest Arab country by far, and so long as the democratic revolution prospered in Egypt you could still say that the “Arab Spring” was changing things for the better, even despite the calamity in Syria. But it’s very hard to see how the Egyptians can find their way back from where they are now. Even worse, the Egyptian coup is stark proof that political Islam cannot succeed by taking the democratic path. The message it conveys to devout Islamists all over the Arab world is that Osama bin Laden was right: only by violence can their political project succeed. Thanks a bunch, General Sisi.

Singer gets top Order of Canada honour THE CANADIAN PRESS QUEBEC - It’s taken five years, but singing star Celine Dion has attended a ceremony to pick up a medal elevating her within the Order of Canada. The pop star was at the Governor General’s Quebec City residence to receive the award Friday, a day before her concert at the nearby Plains of Abraham battlefield. It was a rare appearance outside Las Vegas for the Quebec-born star, who is in the midst of a three-year stint at Caesar’s Palace casino. It was initially announced in 2008 that Dion would be elevated to the highest rank of the Order of Canada, that of Companion. She was first named to the order in 1998, at the lower rank of Member. “Thank you for this great honour,” Dion said during the ceremony. “I’ll try to be worthy by being a good Companion.” She picked up the prize during a ceremony at the Citadelle fortress with her husbandmanager Rene Angelil, who has now received a medal as Member of the Order of Canada. Dion told reporters later that she had been blessed with an “amazing career,” and was touched by the “wonderful” experience whenever she returns home to a warm reception. “We come here way too little,” Dion said.

She added that she had been closely following news from Lac-Megantic and was there “in spirit,” in the community devastated by a train derailment July 6. The couple reportedly gave $100,000 to humanitarian efforts in the town. Angelil thanked his wife in an emotional speech where he said his parents would have been proud to witness the moment. “I want to thank the life given to me - (by) the exceptional artist who was my engine, and the mother and wife who was even more exceptional who gave me wings,” Angelil said. “Thank you, Celine. I adore you.” It was a unique ceremony, in that Dion and Angelil were the only recipients and they delivered short speeches from the podium. Order of Canada ceremonies are usually group events featuring multiple recipients, who receive a few words of tribute and quietly pick up their medals. In granting her the award, Rideau Hall lauded Dion’s music and humanitarian work. “Celine Dion is not only an extraordinary ambassador for Canada, she also represents the values we hold dear,” said the citation read aloud before she accepted the prize. As for Angelil, the citation lauded his philanthropic generosity, and “determination and extraordinary flair” that propelled the careers of Quebecois singers.

Orioles headed to provincials Trail pounds Cranbrook in final tune-up

By Times Staff With the B.C. Senior men's provincial baseball championship on the horizon this coming weekend in Victoria, the Trail AM Ford Orioles got in one final tuneup at Butler Park. What was billed as best-of-three playoff between Trail and Cranbrook to determine the Kootenay candidate for the provincials, turned into more of a batting practice for the seasoned Oriole squad. Trail pitched well, hit well and basically shutdown any hope the young Cranbrook squad had of an upset with back-to-back convincing wins on Saturday to secure their provincial trip. The Orioles scored abbreviated five-inning wins by counts of 10-0 and 12-0 to sweep the series. “(Cranbrook) is new and got a glimpse of how far they need to come,” said Orioles' manager/player Jim Maniago. “They had three hits in two games, all by the same guy and one was a bunt.” While Cranbrook used the playoff as a learning experience, it was an opportunity for Trail players to fine tune their game ahead

Burnaby and one of the Victoria teams, which boasts a potent lineup “Langley is the defending champs and are heading to Nationals in three weeks. Burnaby has reloaded and are pretty solid and will be picking up good players from the other Lower Mainland teams.” He cited Victoria's home field advantage and crowd support as an edge over other teams. “Nanaimo is a little unknown what they will come with, they've had a tough year but this is close to home and if they have everyone there are the best hitting team in the province and can be dangerous. “Kamloops isn't as good as last year when they ended up second but are scrappy and have good pitching and will surprise teams in close games. “Hopefully we can stay in the mix and give ourselves a chance. It's a tough tournament to win but anything can happen.” Trail's first game is Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. when they face Prince George. It's the first of two games on Saturday. Trail faces Victoria at 3 p.m. The Orioles will play Langley on Sunday morning. The top two teams in each division advance to the playoff round.


Smoke Eaters sign two as training camp nears By Times Staff With the team’s training camp set to open in less than a month, the Trail Smoke Eaters added some size and experience in a pair of signings announced on Sunday. The team signed 18-year-old forward Jake Kauppila of the North American Hockey League as well as 18-year-old defenceman Joel Webb from Edmonton’s Major Midget program. The six-foot-one, 190lbs Kauppila already has a schol-

arship lined up with Michigan Tech. The Illinois native had 11 points in 55 games with the Coulee Region Chill of the NAHL. “Jake is a big bodied, great skating forward who we are thrilled to get,” said Smokies head coach and general manager Bill Birks.” “He plays a physical high tempo game and will be a welcome addition to our lineup this season. Webb captained the Maple Leaf Athletic Club’s AAA midget team for two seasons.

He also played two junior hockey games last season as an affiliate with the Drayton Valley Thunder of the Alberta Junior Hockey League. Birks likes what the

six-foot-two, 200lbs defenceman brings to the Smokies program. “Joel is a big strong kid who we identified last winter. What impressed us about Joel was his work ethic

and play in the d-zone. “Joel is a very simple and effective and has a big presence in the physical part of the game.” Main camp opens Aug. 21.

Mariners designate Bay for assignment Team has 10 days to decide his fate THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SEATTLE - Outfielder Michael Morse has been recalled from his rehabilitation assignment by the Seattle Mariners and veteran outfielder Jason Bay has been designated for assignment. The Mariners made the moves on Monday before opening a six-game road trip at Boston and Baltimore. Morse had been on rehab at Triple-A Tacoma while recovering from a quad injury that landed him on the disabled list for more than a month. Morse played in six games at Tacoma and hit .250 with one double and one home run. Morse first suffered the injury in late May and has played in just 11 games since May 28. Bay, 34, signed a one-year deal with the Mariners before the season and his versatility was put to good use in the outfield. But his bat slumped of late and was hitting just .204 with six doubles and 11 home runs. The Mariners have 10 days to trade, release or outright Bay to the Minors. The Trail product, signed as a free agent in December, has appeared in 68 games this season. The move comes at a bad time for a group of Trail baseball fans, led by Lou DeRosa, who are in Boston this week to watch the Red SoxMariners series.


DeBiasio off to solid start at B.C. Seniors

By Times Staff Trail native Brian DeBiasio was one stroke off the pace following partial play of the first round of the B.C. Senior golf championships in Kamloops on Monday. DeBiasio, who golfs out of Qualicum Beach, carded an even-par round of 72 at the Eaglepoint Golf Resort, one stroke behind early leader Wayne Schaeffer of Kelowna at one-under par. Approximately 30 players had yet to complete their rounds as of press time. However, the three West Kootenay entrants finished their rounds with less-than-spectacular results. Fruitvale’s Brad Harding, coming off a win at the Birchbank club championship, fired an 84 in his first attempt at a B.C. senior golf title. Harding’s round featured 10 pars but he struggled with a triple-bogey to start the back nine and a double-bogey to finish his round. Pars were hard to come by for Castlegar’s Don Knutson, who accumulated only five en route to a round of 87. Victor Jmaeff, also from Castlegar, finished with a round of 90 thanks to a quadruple bogey on the 18th hole.

program with three phases, running September through June, with weekly training sessions. There will also be one travel weekend per phase, which last year included an MLS weekend in Vancouver featuring an on-field training session and a Whitecaps FC MLS match. “The club’s desire is to have an overall regional program strategy that will allow the Prospects Academy to be

accessible to the best players in the Kootenay region,” said Broadhurst. “In this coming 2013-14 cycle, we will operate a West program which will primarily be open to players from Nelson and Kootenay South. The objective will be to work towards a similar East program for the fall of 2014-15. This will then provide the ability to connect the two programs for select training and events.” Whitecaps FC currently provide technical services to the Nelson Youth Soccer Association and hope to expand these services to other areas of the Kootenays. To be selected for the Whitecaps FC Prospects Academy, all players must register for the evaluation process. Evaluation sessions will be held at Lakeside Park in Nelson during the weekends of August 10 and 11 and again on August 17 to 18.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - “The Wolverine” slashed monsters and minions to debut atop the weekend box office. The Fox film featuring Hugh Jackman’s sixth turn as the claw-wielding superhero opened with $55 million in North America, according to studio estimates Sunday. Last weekend’s top movie, Warner Bros.’ low-budget horror “The Conjuring,” slipped to second place, adding another $22.1 million to its take, while “Despicable Me 2” was in third with $16 million. The Universal animated sequel, with its cast of cute, yellow minions, has made more than $600 million worldwide since it came out four weeks ago. “The Wolverine,” which is set in Japan and features an international cast, earned another $86.1 million overseas. The film’s opening-week take surpassed the $120 million it cost to make, said Chris Aronson, Fox’s head of domestic distribution. “It’s a huge opening for the clawed one,” he said. “It played equally well from Maine to Maui.” Another Fox film, the animated snail-racing tale “Turbo,” was in fourth place with $13.3 million. Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups 2” followed with $11.5 million. Woody Allen’s latest, “Blue Jasmine,” enjoyed a stellar opening of its own, though on a much smaller scale. Starring Cate Blanchett, the film opened in just six theatres but still collected $612,767. “It’s one of the biggest opening per-theatre averages ever for a non-animated film,” said Paul Dergarabedian of box-office tracker Hollywood. com. Ticket sales this weekend were up almost 30 per cent over the same weekend last summer, he said. “It was a good weekend to be a moviegoer because the choices just got a lot more interesting,” Dergarabedian said, noting a mix that includes animated, independent and big-budget action offerings. “Fruitvale Station,” the Sundance winner already generating Oscar buzz, opened across the country and edged its way into the top 10, contributing to a summer box office that’s up more than 10 per cent over last year.

PBS gets a MONday & Movies chance to shine THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Honey Boo Boo, the management at PBS wants to thank you. You, too, real housewives. And naked castaways, Long Island princesses, breakaway Amish, storage warriors, pawn stars and pickers. People at public television may not want to watch you, but they are happy to see you. When Discovery, The Learning Channel, History, Bravo, A&E and similar networks emerged, there was a real fear it could lead to the death of PBS. Each specialized network would pick off a portion of PBS’ audience for programs on science, nature, history and the arts. Founded as an alternative to commercial TV, PBS was losing what made it unique. Yet in the past few years, these cable networks discovered that it was much more profitable to create reality TV stars. PBS’ path was cleared, and it is making the most of its new chance. “It is now once again something that the viewer can’t get anywhere else,” said Beth Hoppe, PBS’ programming chief. PBS’ viewership slipped steadily starting in 1993, which hardly made it unusual in a world with an ever-increasing number of choices. Since 2009, that trend has reversed. PBS’ average prime-time audience has ticked back up from 1.9 million four years ago to 2.1 million now, with the growth faster among young people. Certainly the sensation of “Downton Abbey” is a key factor, but the growth isn’t just on Sunday. Hoppe is trying to infuse PBS with new energy, make its projects more timely and get her colleagues to treat it as a television network instead of just a public service. PBS, meanwhile, is a Snookie-free zone. “It’s not that the programming is bad,” Kerger said. “It’s just different, that’s all. They’re in a different business.” While there’s much on cable TV that PBS doesn’t want to emulate, Hoppe said the competition has pushed public broadcasting to be more innovative. She considers “Antiques Roadshow” an example. The success of miniseries like History’s “Hatfields & McCoys” and “The Bible” is pushing PBS to get into that genre. “Downton Abbey,” returns for its fourth season on Jan. 5. You’d have to look back two decades to Ken Burns’ “The Civil War” to find a series as important to PBS.

Parents can give money to whomever they like Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

I worked like a horse to get straight A’s, but still didn’t qualify for a scholarship big enough to cover the cost of the university. Taking out a loan is out of the question, because my parents won’t co-sign, and the bank won’t give me one without it. I think my sister should sell her jewelry to pay for the drugs, and she and my brother-in-law should downgrade to a smaller home if they need the money. My mother says I’m being selfish. Am I? -- Missing Out Dear Missing: This is your parents’ money. They can choose to give more to your sister (and her child),

happen to be a lesbian, so I believe I have the authority to speak to her concern. I don’t believe it’s her white hair that is causing the unwelcome attention. It’s more about posture, physical carriage and style of clothing that projects a certain “gay-dar” (gay radar). She shouldn’t change her hair color over this, but perhaps a more feminine hairstyle and wardrobe would make a difference. But you’re right, Annie. Flirting is not a sign of endangerment. -- Pomona, Calif. Dear Pomona: We appreciate the backup. Read on for more: From Florida: As I have aged, I also notice that white men don’t apparently find me sexy or relevant anymore. Thank heavens Hispanic and black men and lesbians still think I’m as cute as a button. I’d forget how to flirt if it weren’t for them. I’m strictly straight and happily

married, but still find it a tremendous compliment when someone chats me up a bit. Santa Cruz: Speaking as a whitehaired lesbian with all the “inside” knowledge available, I can only wish the rumors were true. Maybe she could

give me some pointers. California: As a straight, older widow, I am confused by this, as well. After I stopped wearing my wedding ring, I began wearing rings on other fingers and learned that this is a “lesbian symbol.” How would I know

this? I don’t grill people about their sexuality and don’t enjoy having to explain mine, which invariably requires mentioning the loss of my dear husband. I’m beginning to wonder whether I need to wear a fake wedding ring.

rather than pay for an expensive university education for you. We realize this isn’t fair, but it serves no purpose to build up resentment. You can get a perfectly good education at a community college for a fraction of the cost, and if you still want to attend a fouryear university, you can look into transferring in two years, and research scholarships, grants and loans that may be available then. Your parents obviously believe your sister needs this money more than you do, which also means they feel you are responsible and motivated and will do OK without their help. Please prove them right. Dear Annie: This is for “Puzzled in Gary, Ind.,” who wondered why her senior age and white hair were attracting unwanted flirtation from lesbians. I, too, have a full head of white hair and just turned 59. I also

Dear Annie: My niece is transgender (she’s a boy who wants to be a girl). She needs to take a hormone blocker, and it costs a fortune. Insurance won’t pay for it, so the whole family is chipping in. My brother-in-law doesn’t make much money, and he’s lazy. My parents paid most of their bills when they were first married, and they are giving my niece so much money that we cannot have our annual vacation. My parents will be giving them more money in a few months. Meanwhile, my niece gets everything she wants. My mother recently bought her a $200 outfit for her birthday. I suggested she get something less expensive because she is already paying a fortune for the hormone blocker. My parents now can’t send me to the university of my choice, so I have to opt for community college.




YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, July 31, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Be patient and careful at home, as well as when dealing with family members today. Small appliances might break down; minor breakages could occur and arguments might break out. Run for cover! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a seriously accident-prone day for your sign. Please respect this. Pay attention to everything you say and do, especially driving, walking, jogging and cycling. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Keep an eye on your money and your possessions today. You might find money; you might lose money. Protect whatever you own against theft and loss. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your knee-jerk reaction to someone or something might get you in trouble today. Therefore, think care-

fully before you speak. Don’t do anything or say anything rash. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel restless today. Because of this, you might do things impulsively or say something without thinking. It’s as if some kind of energy is building up within you and needs to be released. (Yikes!) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Relations with others in groups will hold a few surprises. Someone might challenge you or attack you. Physical activity with groups is prone to accidents. Be careful! LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be cautious in all your dealings with bosses, parents, teachers and authority figures today, including the police. Conflict could quickly blow up into something nasty. Think before you speak. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Travel plans and schedules

connected with higher education will be canceled, delayed or rescheduled today. Allow extra time for wiggle room. (Definitely.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Keep an eye on your bank accounts and all matters related to inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and insurance. Anything could happen. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

This is a dicey day for close relationships. Someone might explode, and it could be you. Remember: Patience is the antidote to anger. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Your work routine will be interrupted by computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, canceled appointments -- whatever. Just accept this, and go with the flow. (Machinery breakdowns and accidents also are possible.)

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Pisces parents should be extra vigilant because today is an accident-prone day for your kids. Romance also can be upsetting! Patience and keen vigilance are your allies today -- no question. YOU BORN TODAY You are philosophically curious. You want to know what makes people tick, which is why you are intrigued by characters and their strange tales. Many









of you write, teach or act because you love to share your discoveries. Most of you are driven by your work, and many are workaholics. Good news! This year can be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big! Birthdate of: Dean Cain, actor; B.J. Novak, actor/ screenwriter; Amanda Stepto, actress.
