Design firm chosen to map out City still plans for second future Trail museum/library BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

Tucked away at the top of a long flight of stairs in city hall, is a space that houses the story and history of Trail. With limited accessibility to the public and virtually no room for display, the Trail Archives and Museum collections are in dire need of a new location. Council addressed the need for a larger facility to honour the city’s heritage and to expand the Trail library in an announcement Tuesday. The city hired BoniMaddison Architects, a Vancouver design firm, to create a plan for a new museum/ library in downtown Trail, a recommendation made by the Trail Library and Museum Building Steering Committee. “This is very exciting,” said Sarah Benson, director of the Archives and Museum. “It will be wonderful to have broader exposure of our archives in the community.” The museum/library proposal is a project that Barbara Gibson, chair of the Trail Library Board, has championed for years. “We are in dire need of a new library facility,” said Gibson. “We need to engage the public to make this concept a reality.” The goal is to have the $30,000 design complete by December, leaving plenty of time for the museum/library project to go to a referendum at the same time citizens of Trail cast a vote in the municipal election slated for October 2014. The public will have an opportunity to vote on a loan authorization bylaw that will give council the go ahead to borrow money needed to proceed with the construction of the facility.

“We’ve been through this before,” said Gibson, referring to the 2009 library relocation referendum. “There is still a strong need and we need to show that we want it.” The Trail Archives was established in 1978 at the Pine Street site, to collect, preserve and make available to the public the photographic and documentary history of the Silver City. “We are really proud of our archival collection of over 12,000 photographs,” said Benson. “But we are running out of space.” In addition to historical photographs, Trail Archives and Museum staff and volunteers tend to almost 2,000 artifacts, with a flagship collection of sports memorabilia displayed in the Trail Memorial Centre. Ideally, a new facility will allow the archives to be exhibited together, year round. “We don’t know what it will look like yet,” said Benson. “But having an integrated space under one roof should be a real boost for the community and visitors passing through.”

Trail keeps eye on pedestrian bridge that will house sewer line BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

A second crossing over the Columbia River isn’t just a pipe dream. The pipe bridge, meant only for foot traffic, is still on the table and under consideration by the City of Trail. The estimated total cost, including the engineering fees and construction services for the pipe/ pedestrian crossing, is approximately $6.5 million. The planning stage for a new structure rolled ahead in May, after the engineering design was awarded to Buckland and Taylor, a specialized bridge engineering firm based in North Vancouver. “They are currently studying the best location for the bridge,” said David Perehudoff, Trail’s chief administrative officer (CAO). The actual design of the bridge will begin once the location, either upstream or downstream from the old bridge, has been decided. The engineering firm is considering placing the pipe bridge at Thom Street (Butler Park) in East Trail or downstream from the old bridge at Main Street (near

the Trail Aquatic and Leisure Centre). The final engineering bridge concept is expected to be completed in November. “The plan is to be in the position to tender the bridge project later this year or early next,” added Perehudoff. New construction can begin even though an obstacle, the Old Trail Bridge, stands in the way. The question facing the city is how to foot the estimated $5-million bill to tear the old bridge down. “We are still hoping and reminding the government that they owned the bridge for 50 years and so did Trail for 50 years,” said Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs. “It should be a 50-50 cost sharing demolition.” Bogs said that there is no legal mandate to take the bridge down unless there is an incident such as pieces of it falling into the river, or structural movement detected. “At this moment in time it is just there,” he said. “When it will be removed, that is the question.” The issue will be up for discussion at the annual Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) conference in Vancouver next month. “This is a topic we will bring to the UBCM,” confirmed Bogs.

The ace of clubs should not be cashed on the opening lead if not accompanied by the king. The best of bad leads is the nine of hearts. The play: East wins the opening lead with the ace of hearts and puts the king of spades on the table. He has to remove the entry to the clubs and hearts. Declarer takes the ace of spades and plays his top hearts and then a club. West ducks and declarer wins the king of clubs and cashes the ten of hearts. He then plays another club and West takes his ace. He knows declarer has no more clubs and cannot get to the good clubs. West cashes the queen of spades and exits a spade. Declarer

Regional district will help finance project From page 1 “Although we are discussing our strategy on how to best approach the government.” The idea of constructing a pedestrian bridge/sewer pipeline was first proposed to the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) by the City of Trail in 2011, following a cost review summary of a new sewer line to cross the Columbia River. In 2012, Trail and its regional sewer partners, Rossland and Warfield, decided to move forward to create a pipe bridge that would support the regional sewer line after a busted pipe underneath the old bridge led to 5,500 cubic

metres of liquid sewage seeping into the river. The structure is the most affordable option for rerouting the utility line. Funding for the bridge will be shared with the RDKB based on the sewer line being moved off the former bridge and onto the new pipe bridge. The total contribution from the RDKB is yet to be determined, however John McLean, the district’s CAO, said that the RDKB will be responsible for the costs associated with installing a pipe bridge. “The city is responsible for any additional costs to turn it into a walking bridge,” he added.

A big brown bat pup is ready for take off.

Bats learn to forage this month, says biologist Times Contributor The Kootenay Community Bat Project (KCBP) has received numerous calls from residents of the area who have found a bat on the ground, had a bat fly into the house, or have a bat roosting in an unusual location. “This is the time of year when the juvenile bats are learning to fly and their not very good at it” says Juliet Craig, coordinating biologist for the KCBP. “They fly into houses or fall on the ground and have difficulty getting up again.” Juvenile bats are born as pups in late June and July. In August, they are flying on their own and learning to forage. A bat that flies into a house can be removed by wearing leather gloves or oven mitts, or capturing it in a butterfly net or box. If it is out of reach or cannot be found, doors and

windows can be left open in the evening so the bat can fly away. A bat roosting in a strange location, such a low on a wall or under a patio umbrella is likely a juvenile and can be left where it is, as long as it is not at risk of coming into contact with people or pets. “If possible, bats are best left where they are” continues Craig. “However, if a bat is found on the ground, it may need to be re-located. “A bat on the ground does not necessarily mean that it is injured or sick, it may just be a juvenile that has had trouble flying.” Bats are usually not capable of propelling themselves up and off the ground. Generally, they crawl to a wall or tree, climb up it, and then swoop down to fly away. A bat found on the ground can be put into a pillow case or cloth shopping bag and

pinned, open end up, to a tree or wall in the shade. That way the bat can hang upside down in a protected location during the day, and fly out when it’s ready in the evening. “The most important thing is not to come into direct contact with the bat” warns Craig. “It is very rare that a bat has rabies but still possible. “If a person has been at risk of being bitten or scratched by a bat then they have to either kill the bat to get it tested for rabies or have the shots themselves, neither of which is a good outcome.” The Kootenay Community Bat Project biologists recommend that anyone who has come into direct contact with a bat contact Interior Health. For more information about bats in the Kootenays, visit or contact 1-855-9BC-BATS.

The third anniversary of Australian Owen Rooney’s disappearance is today (Aug. 14) and while his family is still actively searching, it is trying to find a sense of normalcy. The family, including sisters Bree and Kelly Rooney, canvassed B.C. and Alberta after Owen’s disappearance but have since returned to Australia. “We have had some time to return our lives to looking normal again,” explained Kelly Rooney, who has begun teaching again. “We still live each day with Owen close to our hearts and do what we can to continue the search for him without allowing it to consume our entire lives. We all miss Owen dearly in our lives. I had my 30th birthday party with a big group of friends and family, we had lamb on the spit on a sunny winter afternoon. Owen would have loved it and he was very missed.” “We are continuing our search for Owen with the help of the social media via Facebook and our website ( We are living our life alongside this and working every day to be happy within our life. We have come to a place of trust that Owen will return

to us if he can and we work to have all doors open for him to do that,” explained mother Sharron Rooney, who is working at her natural healing therapy business. Other sister Bree is at university, doing a double degree in fine arts and teaching while brother Sean and father Steve are back doing electrical work, according to Sharron and Kelly. While both Sharron and Kelly have said contact with the RCMP has been reduced with their return to Australia, there has been increased media coverage in Australia as Missing Persons Week in the country was between July 28 and Aug. 3. The case is still active and will remain active until Owen Rooney is found or until the Australian will be anticipated to reach 100 years of age – he was 24 years of age in 2010. Rooney was last seen at Boundary Hospital in Grand Forks in 2010 – he had suffered a head injury two days earlier – and left behind his cellphone and backpack. He stands 175 cm (5’9”) and weighs about 73 kg (161 pounds). Anyone with information can call Grand Forks RCMP at 250442-8288.

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER Court documents show a dentist who is accused by the College of Dental Surgeons of practising illegally may be trying to flee Vancouver. In an affidavit filed Monday in B.C. Supreme Court, private investigator Michael Lantz says he tracked down Tung Sheng Wu’s alleged vehicle at a transportation facility in Richmond, where it was being prepped for loading onto a flatdeck truck.

Lantz says he was first told the truck was destined for Toronto, but then was later told it would be shipped to China. Lantz alleges the vehicle was full of clothes, suitcases and what appeared to be dental supplies. Wu, who also goes by David, did not appear at a hearing on Monday, and a warrant has since been issued for his arrest. None of the allegations in the court documents have been proven in court. The college says it wants Wu apprehended.


Totem celebrates Gwaii Haanas pact THE CANADIAN PRESS HAIDA GWAII, B.C. - A totem pole detailing the history of the Gwaii Haanas region will rise above southern Haida Gwaii this week, making it the first monumental pole to be raised in the Gwaii Haanas area in 130 years. The 13-metre pole was carved to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Gwaii Haanas Agreement, a document that allows the government of Canada and the Haida Nation to co-manage and protect the region. The pole will be raised Thursday by about 200 people on Windy Bay in Lyell Island, where in 1985, the Haida Nation led a protest against logging in the area. After that, the area was designated a heritage site, and the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve was created. Field unit superintendent Ernie Gladstone says the pole carved from red cedar incorporates figures that detail the story of Gwaii Haanas from the beginning of time to the present.

School grieves for ‘gentle, large boy,’ says principal Junior hockey player collapses during skating drill By Michael Tutton


A junior hockey player who died suddenly at a training camp this week was a large but gentle boy who had recently started to show academic promise, his former principal said Tuesday. Paul Kitchen, head of school at Rothesay Netherwood in New Brunswick, said staff and

students have been hit hard by the death of Jordan Boyd. The 16-year-old boy died Monday after collapsing during a skating drill at tryouts for the Acadie-Bathurst Titan of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Kitchen said the 270-student private school in Rothesay is reaching out to offer support to Boyd’s parents, who had been thrilled by their son’s academic progress. “Jordan is a fine, fine young man who worked hard at his academics, who worked hard at his relation-

ship with others,” Kitchen said in an interview. “He was ... this gentle, gentle large boy with this smile on his face.” The league said a physical therapist provided CPR after Boyd fell on the ice, lost consciousness and stopped breathing at a rink in Bathurst, N.B. Results from an autopsy are expected later this week. Kitchen said Boyd’s hockey skills blossomed during the 2012-13 academic year when his team won silver at the World Sport School Championships in Calgary.


Four Canadians charged in penny stock fraud scheme By Paola Loriggio


Four Canadians and five Americans engaged in a massive penny stock fraud scheme that bilked investors in Canada, the U.S. and many other countries of more than $140 million, the U.S.

Department of Justice said Tuesday. One of the Canadians was arrested in Ontario and another one was among six suspects arrested in New York, Arizona, New Jersey, Florida and California, authorities said. Two other

Canadians are being sought in what the department is calling one of the largest international penny stock frauds in history. Two of the Canadian suspects - Gregory Ellis, 46, and Kolt Curry, 38 - have been arrested.

The protest came just a day after Toronto police Chief Bill Blair announced the appointment of retired justice Dennis O’Connor to assist the force in its review of all police practices, including use of force. Blair said he’s asked O’Connor to make recommendations and examine best practices from around the world, citing public concern about police use of force and response to emotionally disturbed people.

TORONTO Hundreds of protesters waving banners and placards spilled into the streets outside the city’s police headquarters Tuesday demanding justice for an 18-year-old who died after being shot and Tasered by officers last month. Sammy Yatim’s mother and sister along with the families of other police shooting victims in Ontario attended the protest, which coincided with a monthly public meeting of Toronto’s police services board. “Justice for Sammy, justice for all,” chanted protesters, who were blocked from the police headquarters’ entrance by officers on bikes. Yatim died on July 26 on an empty streetcar following a police shooting that was captured on several cellphone and security camera videos.

Nine shots can be heard on the videos following shouts for Yatim to drop the knife. The final six appear to come after he had already fallen to the floor of the streetcar followed by the sound of a Taser. Yatim’s death sparked public outrage on social media over the way officers handled the confrontation. On Tuesday, some protesters carried signs with messages like “an empty streetcar? Whom did you protect” and “abolish the SIU,” referring to the Special Investigations Unit, which is looking into the incident. Yatim’s death was repeatedly referred to as “preventable”

How one km of bike lane sparked a revolution in the City of Vancouver


s anybody who has seen astronaut Chris Hadfield’s incredible images from space can attest, the single most prominent human-made features of cities like Toronto, Windsor or Edmonton are roads. Ever since the 1950s the car has been the accidental architect of our cities. Billions of dollars have been dedicated to roads, overpasses, tunnels and other car infrastructure. But this single-minded dedication to making sure cars got to where they wanted to go as fast as they could has had some pretty serious unintended consequences. As Andrew Coyne says in Macleans ‘Traffic is slowly strangling our cities.’ Cars in traffic use more fuel, pollute more and simply aren’t productive. Coyne also quotes a German study which finds that ‘being in heavy traffic triples your risk of a heart attack within an hour.’ Enter the bicycle. It is the most efficient form of transportation on the

planet. You can move five times faster than walking and go three times as far on the same amount of caloric energy. The benefits of the bicycle certainly were not lost on the City of Vancouver when it decided to flip the traditional urban script. ‘Since 1997 we established priorities with walking being the highest priority, cycling second, transit third, and the automobile is at the bottom of the list,’ says Jerry Dobrovolny, the director of transportation with the City of Vancouver. And unlike cities that dabble in making their cities more bike-friendly Vancouver has actually dramatically increased the use of bikes and decreased traffic congestion in downtown Vancouver. According to Dobrovolny, bike trips have gone up by 180 per cent over the past 15 years and the amount of people cycling to work has grown from 3.5 per cent to 4.5 per cent. Today, 12 out of every

100 trips in Vancouver are done via bicycle.



Green Revolution And they did it not by focusing on the middle-aged-man-in-lycra (MAMIL) but by building bike infrastructure that kids, grandmas and people that aren’t super proficient bike riders would feel comfortable using. ‘We know that there’s many people that are interested in cycling, but they’re not comfortable riding next to cars,’ says Dobrovolny. Nearly all cities have bike lanes, but paint on the road just isn’t safe enough for these non-MAMILs. Instead, Vancouver is using separated bike lanes and

bike boulevards. Separated bike lanes are dedicated lanes built only for cyclists that are physically separated from cars. Bike boulevards are repurposed residential streets that have been made bike friendly. ‘It’s a regular street, but it’s been designed so that bikes generally have the right of way,’ says Erin O’Melinn, the executive director of Hub, Vancouver’s largest cycling advocacy organization. Separated bike lanes are the real game changer. On the Dunsmuir Viaduct four times more cyclists are using the road thanks to the separated bike lane. Safety has improved as well. ‘Since the separated lanes have gone in downtown we’ve seen a big reduction in the number of collisions of all types, including the number of people riding on sidewalks, so pedestrians feel much more comfortable,’ says O’Melinn. Reducing pollution and improving health are great reasons to invest in cycling,

but another reason is that it’s cheap like borscht. ‘Whereas heavy trucks and buses and automobiles break down the road infrastructure and result in a lot of added costs in terms of maintenance. When we build a pedestrian or bike facility they last for 100 years,’ says Dobrovolny. In 2010, Vancouver’s city council approved a $25 million 10-year bike plan. For comparison, the Canada Line, the new rapid transit line from Vancouver to Richmond that was built in time for the Olympics, cost $2 billion dollars. Heather Deal is a Vancouver city councilor who says the decision to convert a whole lane of traffic on the Burrard Bridge into a bike lane was a real turning point. ‘That was the first time we took space away from cars, “ she said.

Not afraid to label ‘terrorism’ The current discussion on terrorism needs to be redefined. When the atomic bombs were dropped on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki over 100,000 civilians were killed without warning. In the city of Hiroshima, many thousands of those that survived the initial blast found their way to the river in an effort to relieve the pain from their burns. This is where many more (thousands) died, their bodies clogging the river as their city burned into ruins. This is commonly defined as

an act of war. When the United States invaded Iraq aproximatly 162,000 people were killed, 80 per cent of which were civilians. This was defined as a preemptive strike. In comparison, when a person detonates a bomb, it is now defined as an act of terrorism. It is important that all acts of violent aggression are clearly defined as such and our perception of them is not blurred by labels. During the 1950 to 1970 period the label “Communist”

was used to define our enemy. Accusations of being a Communist could ruin careers. Vast sums of money were spent to stop the “Communist” threat. Similarly the current label of terrorism is now being used to justify vast military and surveillance expenditures. As for myself, I am not afraid of the label “terrorism,” however, I am very concerned with all acts of violent aggression and the way our society is reacting to them. Dave Carter, Castlegar

After Lac-Megantic, aim for gold standard on rail safety An editorial from the Toronto Star As the people of LacMegantic begin to rebuild lives shattered by the train wreck that devastated their town, transportation safety officials are rightly worried about the growing rail traffic in fuels and other dangerous goods, and the potential for tragedy when something goes wrong. American officials report nearly 5,000 breaches of “securement regulations” since 2010. While few resulted in major accidents, the U.S. Federal Railroad Administration rightly pointed to Lac-Megantic as a prime example of “the terrible consequences that can arise when a railroad accident results in a sudden release of flammable liquids.” In an instant the town centre was incinerated; 47 lives were snuffed out. Now, faced with a $200-million cleanup bill and other liabilities, the railway has obtained creditor protection. Apart from much soulsearching, the tragedy has produced emergency orders by Transport Canada and the FRA

toughening up rail safety. Yet while officials on both sides of the border inevitably drew many of the same conclusions, the orders were sufficiently different to raise the question of whether we are still falling well short of a “gold standard” when it comes to preventing rolling stock accidents. Both countries’ emergency orders stress the need to ensure that locomotives transporting dangerous goods aren’t left unattended on main tracks. They also call on railways to make sure that unattended cabs are locked and/or that key control levers are removed. And they tighten rules on various brakes, essentially ensuring that they are engaged to prevent unintended movement of the sort that led to the tragedy. These are all sensible precautions. But in one important respect the Canadian government has rightly gone further, and now requires that two crew members, not one, operate trains carrying dangerous goods. The Americans agree that a twocrew minimum “could enhance safety.” But they are still study-

ing the issue. At the same time, however, the Americans appear to have gone further in a different respect, by putting heavier emphasis on the supervisory role of train dispatchers, and extra inspections. They now explicitly require dispatchers to communicate with crew to “verify and confirm” that enough braking has been applied to ensure that the train can’t budge. Dispatchers must verify and record the number of hand brakes applied, and make sure that they match the railway’s policies, and tonnage and length of the train, the track grade, weather conditions and the kind of equipment being secured. Surely, what’s needed is a policy that melds both sets of emergency orders into something closer to a best-practices approach on both sides of the border. That’s the broader conclusion to be drawn as regulators learn from the disaster. More train crew, more safetyminded dispatchers and better communication might have averted a tragedy.

Lifestyles Gangnam style

Wedding companies woo rich

By Elizabeth Shim


SEOUL, South Korea Standing by a French chateau’s window, the bride-tobe glows in the afternoon sun as she gazes into her fiance’s eyes. This Chinese

couple’s fairytale moment, however, isn’t unfolding at a Bordeaux estate. The 20-something Beijing lawyers and fans of South Korean pop idol Rain are part of a small but growing number of affluent Chinese for

whom the craze for all things South Korean means flying to Seoul for the weekend. The draw for many of the well-heeled Chinese isn’t Seoul’s ancient palaces or the fiery cuisine. It’s an elegant urban style exempli-

fied by Gangnam, the tony Seoul district made globally famous by South Korean rapper PSY’s “Gangnam Style.” Helping shape that image is the popularity of South Korean cosmetics and fashion.

Destroys ability to recognize faces By Sheryl Ubelacker THE CANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - For most people, seeing a picture of a famous face - Oprah Winfrey, the Queen or Einstein, for instance - sparks immediate recognition and brings the name readily to the lips. But for people with a rare form of earlyonset dementia called primary progressive aphasia, or PPA, the ability to identify a face or the person’s name can be impaired. PPA strikes people aged about 40 to 65, much earlier than is typical for other forms of dementia like Alzheimer’s disease.

The condition is characterized by a deterioration in language and eventually the ability to communicate, although initially cognitive function in other areas remains intact, said Tamar Gefen, a PhD candidate in clinical neuropsychology at Northwestern University in Chicago. “Memory is fine, attention is fine and their planning, their judgment, their personality, their emotions - they’re intact,” explained Gefen, adding that early symptoms can include being unable to recall the names of familiar people or in some cases everyday objects. “Someone will come in and say: ‘I can’t remember my co-worker’s name. I see her every day and I cannot remember it,”’ she said. As the disease progresses, the person has difficulty speaking coherently and eventually stops talking altogether.

Studs class of NBC World Series

By Times Staff A good indication of the level of competition the Trail AM Ford Orioles are up against in the Pacific International League was on full display this past week in Wichita, Kan. where the Seattle Studs won the 79th National Baseball Congress World Series on Saturday. For the Seattle Studs, it was a long time coming. For Studs pitcher David Benson, redemption. Benson threw a four-hit complete game Saturday, helping the Studs win their first National Baseball Congress World Series title with a 5-1 win over the home team’s Wellington Heat at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium. “This just shows what I’ve said all along about the level of competition we’re up against,” said Orioles player-coach Jim Maniago. “The Senators beat these guys four out of seven this year. You add in Langley who wins provincials and are a favourite at Nationals next week and we play the best teams around.” Seattle, making its fourth trip to the NBCWS title, had three runner-up finishes in 2008, 2010 and 2012, the last two to the Santa Barbara Foresters, before going a perfect 6-0 en route to the title. In the 2012 championship game, Benson started but took the loss after yielding three runs in 1.2 innings. The right-hander was impressive this time, striking out four and carrying a shutout into the ninth before yielding a run on a two-out double by Robbie Rea. But he retired the final batter to finish off the complete game and earn tournament Most Valuable Player honours. The Studs jumped out in front in the second against Brady Bowen on a one-out homer by Bobby LeCount and an RBI single by Matt Becker. They pulled away in the sixth on a runscoring single by Kyle Boe, a bases-loaded hitby-pitch on Brian Corliss and a sacrifice fly by Ty Holm. Wellington (5-2) had its best finish since winning the title as the Havasu Heat in 2007. The Heat had fourth-place finishes in 2006, 2008 and 2011. The Northwest Honkers of the PIL also played in the tournament but were eliminated after losses to the Foresters, 4-0, and Colorado Sox, 9-4. The Everett Merchants won the PIL beating the Studs by 1/2 a game, while the Orioles went 5-12 over the season. The PIL is one of 15 leagues across the United States that make up the National Baseball Congress. The 2013 NBC tournament was the first in a split format, with 16 teams participating in the first week and two of those joining 14 others in the championship week. With files from the

Backroad delivers waterproof rec map for West Kootenay By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

B a c k r o a d Mapbooks have created another feature to guide West Kootenay outdoor enthusiasts into the wilderness. Trail natives and Backroad’s founders Russell and Wesley Mussio are celebrating 20 years as Canada’s leading outdoor publisher by introducing a new waterproof outdoor recreation map for the West Kootenay. “We’re basically trying to replace the old BC Forest Service recreation maps that were out there and use to be quite popular, so we’re working with those guys to help us,” said Russell Mussio. The new map is compact, tear resistant, waterproof, and extra rigid for those variable mountain weather conditions while showcasing a variety of recreational opportunities. “It’s a lot more convenient obviously,” said Mussio. “The Backroad Mapbook is individual page format, while this is a traditional fold up map so you get a

lot larger area, and there’s also other little features that you don’t get on the mapbook like Fish BC and advertisers as well, so if you’re new to the area there’s a nice little feature so you can kind of figure out who to go to to get supplies.” The map offers detailed topographic information with up-to-date industry and logging roads, extensive trail systems, and a ton or recreational features not found on other maps. The map has information for the hiker, kayaker, fisherman, canoeist, ATVer, and more, from the extreme alpinist to the happy camper, the new map is a must for all types of recreationist. “It’s one of the benefits of our product, it’s used by everyone from the hardcore person right down to the person who just wants a good map of the West Kootenay.” The Backroad series requires not only a team of researchers to ensure regional information is accurate and complete, but also cooperation and input from various organizations such as fishing and hunting clubs, park superintendents, hiking enthusiasts, government ministries, in addition to feedback directly from readers. “We can’t thank our partners and local help enough,” said marketing

manager Matthew Cosar. “Groups like the Quad Riders ATV Association of BC, BC Parks, and Recreation Sites and Trails BC were instrumental in providing insider details for users. Also we would like to mention Ross Elliot, Tom Lymbery owner of the Gray Creek Store, and Bob Dure for taking the time to help create this map.” The mapbook was born out of the Mussio brothers own frustration in finding reference guides for the Kootenay backcountry. Since it’s humble beginnings from a printing press in the Mussio brother’s living room, the Backroad Mapbook series has expanded dramatically over the last 20 years, and 1.5 million sold copies later, it continues to develop and evolve into a national product. “We’re very happy right now, we’ve obviously seen a transition from a very paper-based mapbook (series), down to a lot more of a diversified company where the digital and the GPS maps and all those products are kind of replacing what we feel are the loss in printed products . . . the spinoffs like these recreation maps are nice because it give us a lot more diversification.” The new mapbook can be purchased at local bookstores, travel information centres, and BC Forestry offices.

NFL to implement HGH testing THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The NFL Players Association “tentatively agreed” to let the league take 40 blood samples for HGH tests each week during the season, with a positive result drawing a four-game suspension, according to a memo the union sent players.

NFL training camps this year will provide a blood sample and information about “height, weight, age, and race/ethnicity” for a “population study” to determine what level of HGH will result in penalties, the union wrote. The NFLPA’s letter says that if more than 5 per cent of all training camp samples are above that threshold, players who fail will have “reasonable cause” testing during the next two seasons - meaning they’ll be subject to additional testing. A player testing positive again during the 201314 or 2014-15 seasons will get an eight-game suspension. A player without another positive result in that time will be removed from the extra testing program. Tuesday’s email to players indicates the union has signed off on various aspects of the HGH program and says owners and players “will likely finalize soon” the in-season weekly testing. But the memo does not make clear what exactly the NFL has agreed to at this point or give specifics about what stands in the way of a final accord. No date has been set for the start of testing, because there are still issues that need to be negotiated between the NFL and union, including whether the commissioner or a neutral arbitrator will handle certain types of appeals of discipline. League spokesman Brian McCarthy declined to comment on any specifics in the NFLPA memo, writing in an email to the AP: “We do not have yet a comprehensive agreement for HGH testing.”

Grocers hopefully donate food whenever possible Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

if my mother knew about this, she’d throw a fit. I can’t figure out why this is so despised. Why should I have to pay all that money for food when I can get it for nothing? -- New York Dear New York: Most people aren’t willing to go through someone else’s garbage in order to find edible food that isn’t contaminated, rotten, partially eaten or long past the expiration date. And while we know some folks do this for economic reasons or as a protest against the “system,” most people find it distasteful and demeaning. We think

until she is gone. Help. -- Prisoner in My Own Home in Southern California Dear Prisoner: Joyce is lonely and either clueless or deliberately obtuse. It is a kindness to include her when you can, but you also are entitled to entertain without her. So you will need to be a bit more assertive and willing to upset her. The next time Joyce comes over unannounced and unwanted, stop her at the door and say, “Joyce, I have company. You will have to come back another time.” If she gets teary, outraged, pushy or anything else, simply repeat that she will have to come back another time. Don’t let her walk beyond the threshold. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Need To Know in Saskatoon,” the woman who disliked her dentist referring to her as “dear.” I am a busy ob-gyn. I often call my patients

by some such all-purpose term of endearment when I blank out and cannot remember their given name. It only means that I am busy and forgetful and have a lot on my mind. But at the same time, I want the patient to feel closer to me than

she would if I did not address her at all. Your dentist only wants you to feel relaxed and comfortable. -- Little Doctor Dear Doctor: That won’t work if the patient finds it offensive and condescending. Some people don’t

mind the endearment. Those who do need to inform the doctor, and the doctor needs to take the objection seriously. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

Dear Annie: I’ve found a new way to get free food: dumpster diving. Several times a week, a group of us go through the supermarket dumpster at night to see what they’ve thrown away. Sometimes there’s nothing, but other times, there’s great stuff. One night, I found nine ears of corn. Another time, it was 23 packs of chicken. I’ve found honeydew melons, cherries, grapes, peppers, tomatoes, potatoes and all sorts of other goodies. I thoroughly boil the meat and poultry before eating it, and I wash the fruit and pour boiling water over it. It loses some color, but still tastes sweet. I cook all vegetables. The problem is, there’s a stigma to this. People give us dirty looks. We’re very careful not to make a mess. We leave everything spotless. But the store manager hates us. And




YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Thursday, Aug. 15, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Unexpected opportunities to travel today might excite you. Others might hear surprising news related to higher education, publishing, the media, medicine and the law. “Stay tuned.” TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep your pockets open, because gifts, goodies and treasures from others might come your way today. Someone might spontaneously do a favor for you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others, because the Moon is opposite your sign today. Something will please you -- something you least expect. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A female co-worker or companion might introduce you to new technology at work

today. A new staff member or new ways of doing things will provide an interesting change. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Spontaneous get-togethers, parties, sports events and creative activities will delight you today. However, parents should keep an eye on their kids, because this is a mildly accident-prone day for them. (Do you know where they are?) VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Something unexpected will change your home routine today. A female family member could have surprising news. Stock the fridge in case an unexpected guest appears. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Spontaneous short trips, fresh ideas and a chance to meet new faces will make this an interesting day for you. Stay light on your feet and go with the flow.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Keep an eye on your money today. You might find money; you might lose money. If shopping, keep your receipts and count your change. (Anything could happen.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) The Moon is in your sign today dancing with wild, wacky Uranus. This makes you feel independent and energetic. (Your Spidey

sense is heightened as well.) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Fresh answers from unexpected sources will pay off in your research today. If you’re looking for solutions, dig deep. A sudden breakthrough in something could be helpful. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A female friend or acquaintance might surprise you today. All your dealings with

groups will be a little bit different for some reason. Keep your eyes open. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Relations with authority figures will hold few surprises for you today. If you feel caught off-guard or rebellious, don’t quit your day job. Wait to see which direction the wind blows. YOU BORN TODAY You are skilled at dealing with others. You have a strong









presence and a natural sense of command. You’re decisive and a born leader. Most of you are not aware of your imperial nature. You are kind, affectionate and warm to others, but you are also incredibly diligent and persevering! This year you will focus on partnerships and close friendships. Birthdate of: Jennifer Lawrence, actress; Julia Child, TV chef; Oscar Peterson, jazz pianist.
