FRUITVALE

Clash over colours BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

A Fruitvale business is asking its patrons to get behind a petition that asks the village to step back from its paint job. When a leaky roof was hanging overhead Villagers Inn owner Mary Siu, she decided it was time for repairs to the roof and an update to the white building's trim and siding. But she didn't know the village offered design guidelines, specifically a suggested colour scheme, to its business owners in hopes of conveying a certain historical theme. Originally from Asia, Siu has done business in Canada for a quarter of a century with the last 11 years invested in the hotel, pub and liquor store, which are all housed under the same roof off of Highway 3B. She leases a portion of the building out to a Chinese restaurant and has assigned Len Fuller to manage all of her operations. “The reason we started this job was because we have roof leaks, we were unaware that there was any suggestive colour scheme,” explained Fuller. “I've thought it's needed sprucing up for years, the facade was put up in 1979 when the building was built so do the math, it's like 34-year-old cedar. “When it came down to it rather than going with the old forest green, the stoic colour, we thought we'd put something up that's brighter so we can catch people's attention when they're cruising down the highway.” That they did. Halfway through the job, the village

At the same time, the village noticed the “scarlet red” paint selected by Siu (her favourite colour, one that she likens to the Canadian flag) and pointed to its design guidelines set out for revitalization and new construction. The suggested look is part of the village's bylaw for its development permit area, which covers all of the village's business sector. It was originally introduced in 1982 but was amended many times since changes were last made in 1986.

Within the bylaw, under the design guidelines, the village requests building owners select “historical-themed” colours such as a rustic or muted red. “The colours may be suggested, just as the document provides 'guidelines,' however, council still has the authority to approve or deny the development permit proposal as per the bylaw regulations,” explained Lila Cresswell, Fruitvale chief administrative officer. “If the owner had taken out a building permit for the re-roofing, which was also required, then she would have See COUNCIL, Page 2

Water advisory lifted BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

A water quality advisory to consumers in the Beaver Falls Waterworks District (BFWD) was lifted Friday after water tests results came back negative for bacteria mid-week. Early August, the advisory was issued to 207 affected homes located in Area A between the outskirts of Montrose to Bluebird Corner in

Fruitvale after tests showed positive for coliform bacteria. The bacteria is commonly found in the environment in sources such as decaying vegetation or old fecal coliforms, and because the district’s water comes from an aquifer, bacteria can leach through the soil to the underground source.

Council gives go-ahead to complete work FROM PAGE 1 been advised to have the development permit approved prior to purchasing or starting work. “This is not a new process and many other businesses have complied with the guidelines over the years.” But a quick glance around Fruitvale reveals there are some modern looking exteriors like a bright red colour scheme found at Petro Can, which Cresswell attributes to a former council. Given Siu’s circumstance, Fruitvale council, or what remains of it during the holiday summer months, met for an emergency meeting to discuss the hold on the roof job. The village gave Siu the go ahead to complete the work but asked her to pay $200 for a review of the “scarlet red” selected come September

At this time the village looks to update its development permit guidelines, too, a process that has been underway since last September with a total of three open houses held to gather public and business input. Next month can’t some soon enough for Randy Moore, owner of Leather and Steel, a motorcycle gear business that has about six different locations, including the Fruitvale location off of 1st Street. Moore also wasn’t aware of a theme, let alone a “Victorian” one when he made some upgrades to his building without a permit about a year ago. “I simply said I wasn’t going to change,” he said. “I had read through (the document) and found contradic-

tions within it.” Moore paid for the village review but put his foot down when he changed the exterior of his building to a natural cedar, which is not viewed as appropriate under the village’s current guidelines. “First off this is not a Victorian town, it doesn’t date back to the 1700s, no buildings were built in Victorian times,” he added. “Who came up with this asinine idea?” The Villagers has completed the job now, all while gaining much support for its push to remain highlighted in a brighter shade with just over 150 signatures on its growing petition. It’s more about the principle now, said Fuller, adding that much heartache was caused when Siu first received a stop order.

Cresswell presses that if a permit was taken out in the first place, the business owner would have learned of the village’s colour scheme from the get-go. Siu has already spent over $10,000 on the job but could look at a heftier bill now if the village decides the building needs to be repainted. Unlike Nelson or Greenwood, Fruitvale doesn’t have a dominant theme to it and perhaps this entire bylaw needs to be rethought, added Fuller. “We spent a fortune already and then they came over and put a stop order,” he said. “I would have thought that you go to council and you get approved or you don’t, I didn’t know there was a fee. Talk about a police painting job.”

Penticton largest city in new riding FROM PAGE 1 Salmo and Nelson residents will no longer have the convenience of driving over to Castlegar to stop into their MP’s office in Castlegar, where Atamanenko has held an office (with a satellite office in Oliver) in the past. And now Atamanenko questions where he’ll be situated if he finds himself in office again. Under the former boundary lines, Trail, Castlegar and Nelson was a home base for Atamanenko but that may now shift with the addition of Penticton, where over 32,000 people resided in 2011, according to the 2011 census. Penticton is the largest city by area and population in the OkanaganSimilkameen Regional District and has carried different political paths than the Southern Interior. “I think that it will be a challenge for us over in the Okanagan that’s for sure but we have won before, we have had an MP who won in Penticton a number of years ago, and our party is gaining strength in that area,” he said, noting that Penticton residents have historically voted Conservative. Atamanenko says business is as usual right now but noted the next step will be formulating a plan to hold an annual general meeting to create a new association to represent the new riding. He’s not happy with the outcome, one that he has avoided for some time. “They tried this 10 years ago and the current MP at that time Jim Gouk was able to push back but he had support of the neighbouring MPs . . . so they collectively were able to say ‘No you can’t throw Penticton here’ and B.C. Southern Interior was a result of Jim’s push,” said Atamaneko. “This time I didn’t have support to retain the current riding from the neighbouring MPs so I think that’s what made the difference.”

Man dies after dirt bike collides with logging truck By Angela Treharne Fernie Free Press

A 22-year-old man is dead after the dirt bike he was riding collided with a logging truck in what RCMP are calling a “freak accident.” The local man was dirt biking on Lodgepole Forest Service Road east of Elko on Sunday at around 4 p.m. with a friend when they encountered the Canfor truck coming the opposite direction. The truck swerved to the right to try to avoid the man, but while the one dirt bike swerved right and avoided the truck, the victim went left, straight towards the truck. The truck driver tried to avoid the bike, ending up in the ditch, but the bike collided with the truck. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. “At the moment it just looks like a freak and very tragic accident,” said Sgt. Will Thien from the Elk Valley RCMP.

The Nelson Star A Kootenay resident is challenging Jumbo Glacier Resort’s application for an injunction to remove him from the Farnham Glacier Road near the proposed resort. The application to prevent Rob Meaney from blocking the road to Farnham Glacier was scheduled to be heard Monday in the Vancouver Law Courts, just days after the resort was able to move their construction machinery to the Farnham Glacier. Jumbo Glacier Resorts Ltd. filed an injunction application on August 15 in Vancouver, saying that

Interior Health and the district. The BFWD is an improvement district, which means local authorities are responsible for providing services for the benefit of residents in a community. Improvement districts are focused on providing services such as water and fire protection rather than general governance or land use planning. The Beaver Falls community waterworks system is directed by five trustees elected by landowners within its district. The trustees, one whom is a chair, make all water-related decisions on behalf of the landowners. Federal and provincial laws such as the Drinking Water Protection Act apply to the improvement district, with the board of trustees having all the power necessary or useful to manage the usually rural services. The district’s water lines were installed in the late ‘50s and only certain lots remain in the BFWD, most newer homes pull water from municipal sources that are chlorinated.

they were prevented from accessing the glacier by a van blocking the roadway on August 10. “As far as I’m concerned, Glacier Resorts is trying to distract the public by creating the illusion of progress, despite their failure to commence construction before October 12, 2014”, said Meaney, referring to the deadline for construction imposed by the Environmental Assessment Certificate. Meaney, a Johnsons Landing resident, spent time at the camp, and is now a defendant in the lawsuit and a respondent to the injunction application.

“The van wasn’t really blocking their passage, and the work they wanted to do was unauthorized,” said Meaney. “The whole thing is like a game of chess or hearts; we played a lot of hearts at the camp.” In late July, about a dozen Kootenay residents set up a camp next to the Farnham Glacier road 50 km west of Invermere to monitor the resort’s activities at the glacier. They discovered that Jumbo Glacier Resorts intended to engage in unauthorized work on the glacier, Meaney said. “We were concerned that the resort was going to

alter the Farnham Glacier to allow for cat skiing on the glacier in August. According to the agreement the resort signed with the province, any alteration of any glacier is prohibited.” Although the resort has now been given municipality status by the provincial government, Meaney said that opposition remains strong to the resort that has been contentious since it was proposed more than 20 years ago. “A vast majority of Kootenay residents still oppose this resort. It’s their backyard and they know it won’t benefit them in the long run,” Meaney said.

Provincial

Volunteer fire departments feeling the heat

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER Fallen power lines bouncing along roadways may produce “beautiful” and “stellar” light shows, especially in the winter, but a fire chief on southern Vancouver Island says his volunteer force shouldn’t have to respond to such calls anymore. Rob Patterson of Malahat Volunteer Fire & Rescue says colleagues across British Columbia are feeling

the strain as they take on more and more unpaid responsibilities that exceed their traditional tasks of battling flames and responding to medical emergencies and crashes. In the central Kootenay community of Winlaw, the issue boiled over recently when the department was asked to perform traffic-control duty for a community meeting following a major jet-fuel spill. The chief refused and was sus-

pended, prompting the community’s 19 volunteer firefighters to leave their posts until the regional district agreed to lift the suspension and appoint a panel to look at the wider issue. The provincial government lays firefighting decisions in the hands of local governments, while BC Hydro and federal agencies like the RCMP frequently call upon the volunteers for help. Patterson said part

of the problem is volunteers aren’t willing to say No. “I don’t want to be the bad guy to say ‘No. We’re not coming to do that,”’ he said. “But, you know, I’m increasingly finding that I do have to say No. My guys ... they’ve got to get home to their families. They’re not paid for this stuff. They’re out there, you know, half the night or half the day.” British Columbia is served by about

350 independent, community-based fire departments that employ about 4,000 career firefighters and 10,000 volunteers, according to a 2009 report by the Fire Services Liaison Group, an organization that represents chiefs, professionals, officers and volunteers. Of the 350 departments, 170 operate in municipalities and regional districts. But from Victoria to communities like

Winlaw, government officials are reluctant to take total responsibility for tasking volunteer departments with workloads. Kelly Gilday, B.C.’s acting fire commissioner, said in an emailed statement the responsibility for determining resourcing needs and personnel decisions, as well as service levels and policy, rests with local governments. Even at the localgovernment level where municipalities have the authority to make decisions, not every decision is made top-down. In some cases, volunteer departments are asking to take on more tasks, said Brian Carruthers, the chief administrative officer of the Regional District of Central Kootenay, the jurisdiction responsible for Winlaw. “Increasingly, over the years we’re seeing them getting into road rescue, we’re seeing them getting into firstresponder services and that doesn’t always come from the top,” he said. “A lot of time that’s initiated by the individual departments who see themselves, and rightly so, seeing them playing a more broad role in the community with respect to emergency response.” He said the recent request to perform

traffic-control work in Winlaw was a “one-off” instance. Simi Heer, a spokeswoman for BC Hydro, said the utility hasn’t sent correspondence to volunteer departments requesting help with downed power lines,. But as emergency responders, volunteer firefighters are asked to keep members of the public and themselves at least 10 metres away from fallen power lines, she said. Patterson said Hydro crews and their contractors are qualified and paid to respond, and the issue has been raised for the past few years at the annual conference of the Fire Chiefs Association of British Columbia. Paterson wants British Columbians to speak out. “If they were to make mention to their councillors, their regional boards, whatever the governing bodies are, you know, ‘We don’t want our fire guys doing this ... this is not what they’re there for. Let’s not waste their valuable input.’ “I have no desire to waste my time. If I don’t have to be there, we’re gone. We’re going back to our lives. To be having any of these guys out there unnecessarily is a poor use of their volunteering abilities.”

THE CANADIAN PRESS KELOWNA, B.C. - The mayor of Kelowna found himself put on the spot when a blogger chatting with him about women’s rights removed her top mid-interview. Walter Gray asked Lori Welbourne what she was doing when she told him to hold the microphone, took off her halter top and asked about his views on women baring their breasts in public. Welbourne began by citing the case of a New York City woman who took off her blouse in a restaurant, only to be told by the owner that her actions were against the law, except on the street. Gray said that if a woman in Kelowna did the same thing, someone would probably phone the police thinking it was illegal, although bylaws against women baring their breasts have been repealed. He said while a woman wouldn’t be breaking any laws, just because she can go topless doesn’t mean she should because her actions may be distracting to others. The interview ended with an exasperated Welbourne telling Gray that she found his earlobes distracting.

National Quebec

PQ plan gets support THE CANADIAN PRESS QUEBEC - The Parti Quebecois plan on minority accommodations took a big step toward becoming a reality Monday as the party that likely has the swing vote in the legislature backed major parts of it. The Coalition Avenir Quebec says it agrees that judges, police officers Briefs and elementaryand secondaryschool teachers should be restricted from wearing religious symbols like veils, hijabs and turbans. However, medical professionals and daycare teachers would be exempt under the CAQ proposal. So would public-sector workers who don’t hold a position of authority. The CAQ’s votes are key because the PQ has only a minority in the legislature and the other big opposition party, the Liberals, is more hostile to the plan. The emerging consensus in Quebec is that the issue could be a political winner. A poll released Monday said 65 per cent of Quebec’s francophones, and 57 per cent of the overall population, agree with the idea. Just 25 per cent of anglophone respondents said they agree. The Leger Marketing poll of 1,000 respondents was conducted over the weekend and has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points. Whether the plan actually does win votes could be another story.

Wallin part of lawsuit THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - A U.S. court has approved a multimillion-dollar settlement in a securities fraud class-action lawsuit against a bankrupt energy exploration company for which embattled Sen. Pamela Wallin was a director. Between June 2007 and December 2011, Wallin was a paid member of the board of Oilsands Quest Inc., a Calgary-based exploration company. As a director, the Saskatchewan senator was named in the lawsuit along with fellow board members, TD Securities and Calgary consulting firm McDaniel and Associates. The lawsuit, filed by investors in United States District Court in New York in 2011, alleged that Oilsands Quest and its directors overstated the value of the company’s assets by $136 million. “Through a series of false and misleading press releases, investor presentations and accounting manipulations, defendants fraudulently pumped up Oilsands Quest’s stock price by portraying Oilsands Quest as the largest owner of valuable rights to bitumen in Saskatchewan’s oilsands, creating a modern-day gold rush for what defendants knew to be largely worthless mining rights,” reads the original court document.

Highest increase found among seniors THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Canadian households have returned to their free-spending ways and seniors have joined the party lately by borrowing to finance their post-retirement lifestyles, a new report says. The report from Equifax Canada shows that despite recent efforts by policymakers to clamp down on borrowing, total consumer debt in Canada rose $77 billion, or 6.1 per cent, in the second quarter of 2013 from last year, and by 6.5 per cent among those 65 and over. The increase in debt among seniors was the biggest year-over-year of all age groups. Jeffrey Schwartz of Consolidated Credit Counseling Services of Canada says the finding on seniors debt is in line with other reports that show bankruptcies among retirees is on the rise.

“That’s what scary about this,” he said. “Seniors are carrying more debt into retirement. They are trying to maintain a lifestyle they had pre-retirement but on post-retirement income, and if income has dropped, they are increasing their debt to cover off their spending. It’s a very dangerous strategy.” He added another possible cause is that seniors are supporting their grown children in greater numbers. In a separate analysis from the TD Bank also released Monday, economist Leslie Preston noted that although savings rates have risen in recent months, it will take a long time for Canadians, including seniors, to pay off their mountains of debt. “The moderate jump in savings is unlikely to address the broader challenge of insufficient retirement savings for a large slice of Canadian households,” she said. Overall, the Equifax data suggested most of the new

debt came from an increase in mortgage credit, up 7.4 per cent, and in auto loan balances, which increased 8.6 per cent over the past year. Other data from Statistics Canada and the Bank of Canada have tended to show a decrease in credit accumulation, although the last release was for the first quarter of 2013, which found the debtto-income ratio falling to 161.8 per cent from 162.6 per cent. However, the pace on home purchases picked up during the spring. Despite the increase in debt, Equifax also found that delinquency rates fell over the past year to 1.19 per cent in the second quarter of this year, one of the lowest values on record. The fraction of mortgage loans that were 90 or more days delinquent slid to 0.27 per cent from 0.33 per cent a year earlier. Toronto had the highest delinquency rate among major metropolitan areas at

1.56 per cent of non-mortgage balances, but has continuously improved since hitting a peak of 2.53 per cent in 2010. The low delinquency rates suggests that with interest rates at super-low levels, and incomes rising even if moderately, Canadians are able to service their high levels of debt. But Christian deRitis, a director of consumer credit at Moody’s Analytics, warned all that could change with economic conditions or a shock in the housing market. “Stable home prices and improvements in the labour market should continue to support the market in the future, while the outlook for consumer credit remains positive,” he said. “A sudden rise in interest rates or deterioration in fundamentals in key export markets are risks to this forecast, however.” The Bank of Canada has long warned that as interest rates rise, many more Canadians become vulnerable to an economic shock.

Liberal senator resigns, pays back expenses THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Veteran Liberal politician Mac Harb handed his former caucus a gift just before its annual summer retreat, resigning from the upper chamber and paying back all his questionable Senate expenses. That now leaves only three former Conservative senators hanging on in the red chamber, despite pressure to resign over a raft of inappropriate financial claims and connected police

probes. Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau had faced criticism from his rivals for saying he would welcome Harb back into the caucus once he paid back all inappropriate living expenses. That political problem appears to have been taken out of play, in time for the Liberal get-together in Brudenell, P.E.I., beginning Tuesday where financial transparency will be the main focus.

Harb had been fighting the Senate in court over its assessment that he had improperly claimed to be living primarily in a home outside of the national capital region. That complicated legal battle has now been abandoned. “My dispute with the Senate committee on Internal Economy made working effectively in the Senate unrealistic.” Harb says he sent the Senate a cheque for $189,166.17, bringing

his total reimbursement to $231,649.07 or the entirety of his living-related expenses. The 59-year-old politician leaves the Senate with just over 15 years left in a term

that would have taken him to age 75, the mandatory retirement age. He was appointed to the upper chamber by Jean Chretien in 2003 after 15 years as an MP.

A

dilemma is by its very nature a choice between evils, and that is what now faces other countries over the use of poison gas in Syria. All the options may be “on the table”, but none of them are good. Nobody denies that poison gas was used in rebel-held parts of Damascus on 21 August, not even the Syrian government. Medecins Sans Frontieres says 3,600 patients with symptoms of poisoning were treated at three hospitals it supports in Damascus after the attack, and that at least 355 of them died. The real total may be as high as 1,000 dead. That’s a whole week’s normal death toll in the Syrian civil war in just one day. After that, however, we run out of facts. The rebels claim that the Baathist regime was responsible, while the Syrian government says that the rebels did it themselves in the hope of triggering foreign military intervention. Sending United Nations inspectors will not settle that argument: if nerve gas was actually used, it must have come from government stocks, but that doesn’t mean that the regime did it. Everybody knows that

the Syrian military have stocks of poison gas, but what’s happening in Syria is a civil war. The rebels have not overrun any of the known storage sites for Syrian chemical weapons, but they could have secret supporters inside those sites who smuggled some out to them. If you apply the old test of “who benefits?”, the rebels, who are currently losing ground, have a strong incentive to get the Assad regime blamed for using illegal weapons. If that gets the United States and other Western powers to impose a no-fly zone, or bomb the regime’s military bases, it helps the rebel cause. So maybe they acted to provide the necessary “evidence”: some of them are certainly ruthless enough. It’s easier to imagine the regime using chemical weapons: it’s just as ruthless, and it actually owns them. But it is manifestly not to its advantage to do so. President Bashar alAssad’s troops are winning the war without them, and the last thing he needs is foreign military intervention. Using chemical weapons could lead to just such an outcome, and it would be exceptionally stupid for the regime to do so.

GWYNNE

DYER World Affairs

On the other hand, armies and regimes have done exceptionally stupid things in the past, particularly when they are isolated and under great pressure. The emerging consensus among Western governments, at any rate, is that Assad was responsible. So what to do about it? France has already called for the use of force, and the United States and Britain seem to be teetering on the brink: after a 40-minute phone call last Saturday President Barack Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron agreed that “a significant use of chemical weapons would merit a serious response.” But that is about the least they could say, in the circumstances. Earlier in the week, Obama warned publicly that people who “call for immediate action, jump-

ing into stuff that does not turn out well, gets us mired in very difficult situations, (and) can... actually breed more resentment in the region.” If you liked America’s wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, he is saying, you’ll just love the one in Syria – and he knows the American public is not up for it. US military intervention is unlikely to lead to the outcome American foreign policy really desires: the preservation of Syria’s existing secular state, with a change of leadership at the top. If Assad is overthrown, he’ll probably pull the whole edifice down with him. If the rebels win, it’s almost certainly the Islamist radicals who will take over. So if a military intervention is practically bound to end in tears, then why not just skip it? Because chemical weapons are classed as “weapons of mass destruction”, and there is an international treaty banning their use. If you let Assad get away with this, goes the argument, he will have breached an important international taboo on the use of WMD. Well, not really. Biological weapons (“germ warfare”) are truly horrifying weapons of

mass destruction, banned by treaty, and nobody has ever used them. Nuclear weapons can kill by the billions; they have never been banned, but they haven’t been used in war for 68 years now. Poison gas, however, is not really a weapon of mass destruction at all. When gas was used in the First World War, it was always about capturing the next line of trenches. After that war it was banned, but it has been used a few times since: Italy used gas in Ethiopia in 1935; Japan used it against China in 1938; Yemen used it against rebels in the 1960s; and Iraq used it against Iran and Kurdish rebels in the 1980s. In no case did the casualties reach “mass destruction” levels. Napalm, fuel-air explosives and cluster bombs are just as nasty as poison gas, and perfectly legal. The historic ban on poison gas is a valuable deterrent, but it has survived some previous breaches, and preventing this one is not worth a war. Especially if it is, from the point of view of the potential interveners, an unwinnable war. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

‘The Butler’ cleans up THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” served up another box office-topping weekend, earning $17 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That was enough to lead all films on a late August weekend. Two new releases failed to catch on. The teen fantasy “Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” adapted from the popular young adult book series, opened tepidly in third with $9.3 million. Edgar Wright’s pub-crawl-gone-wrong comedy “The World’s End” opened with $8.9 million.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Celebrate Gay Pride Week This week is Gay Pride Week in the Kootenays. This is a celebration of love and understanding to millions of people worldwide and, in many cases, the acknowledgment of equal rights for LGBT couples.  I am afraid to say that I have been remiss in my duties as a councillor as I did not bring up the topic at the last city council meeting.   As such the City of Trail has no proclamation going into this week recognizing this event,

an issue I hope to correct in our first meeting in September, even if it is retroactive. As a global movement, it is important for all levels of government to recognize and respect the rights of all people regardless of race, religion, sex, age or sexual orientation. Too often we forget that the government closest to home, our municipalities, play a huge role in the tone setting for communities and their relationship to the LGBT community.   For

myself, I am very appreciative to the efforts done in Nelson this week for their Pride Parade, and various events happening from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1, and wish the organizers a very successful event. If you have the time the parade is in Nelson this week on Sunday starting at 3 p.m. and more information on other events is available on the Kootenay Pride Facebook page. Sean Mackinlay Councillor City of Trail

Kershaw

The study actually addresses a different issue: what does it cost to raise a child today? The author calculates the cost is between $3,000 and $4,500 a year. He generally excludes what parents pay for housing and child care services. I’ll leave readers to assess whether they think this estimate is realistic. All should ask, however, why does the Fraser Institute dismiss the reality that younger generations are more squeezed now than in the past? Many will know the Institute is skeptical about the value of government investment. But Gens X, Y and their kids are not the primary beneficiary of social spending. Governments spend around $45,000 a year per retiree in Canada, mostly on healthcare, pensions and retirement income subsidies. This spending is nearly four times larger than government spending per younger Canadian. Grade school, post-secondary, healthcare, child care, parental leave, EI and workers compensation all combine for a total of around $12,000 annually per person under age 45. Younger Canadians already face a generational imbalance in government spending on top of their worsening wages relative to housing costs. By discounting the time, income and service squeeze on younger generations, the Fraser Institute distracts attention away from this imbalance. Fortunately, there are Canadians of all ages across the country who believe younger generations deserve a better deal. Dr. Paul Kershaw is a professor at the University of BC, and the Founder of the Generation Squeeze campaign (gensqueeze.ca; @gensqueeze).

MURIEL SIEBERT

First woman of New York Stock Exchange THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Muriel “Mickie” Siebert, who started as a trainee on Wall Street and became the first woman to own a seat on the New York Stock Exchange, has died of complications of cancer at age 84. Siebert died Saturday at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Her death was confirmed by Jane Macon, a director of Siebert Financial and a partner at the law firm Norton Rose Fulbright. Siebert was founder and president of brokerage firm that bears her name, Muriel Siebert & Co. Inc. The company went public in 1996 as Siebert Financial Corp. Macon said Siebert was “a fabulous woman, a trailblazer and a pioneer” who set a high standard for those who entered the financial world after her. “She always pushed the doors open and kept them open for other people to follow.” She bought a seat on the New York Stock Exchange in December 1967 after months of struggling with the maledominated business world that initially resisted her efforts to join. She established her investment firm the same year and transformed it into a discount brokerage house in 1975.

Stellar showing for Zone 6 Proulx to lead Saints into new season By Times Staff The Zone 6 West Kootenay-Boundary Senior Games team had an exceptional showing at the B.C. Senior Games in Kamloops last week. With close to 180 athletes, the team managed 113 medals including 50 gold, 40 silver, and 23 bronze good for eighth place out of 13 Zones. One of the highlights was a dramatic gold medal win in 55-59 ice hockey final. The Zone 6 Kootenay Glacier Kings scored in the last minute of the third period to break a 3-3 tie against the Zone 9 North Central Masters, and added an empty netter on its way to a 5-3 victory. Meanwhile the 60-64 Kootenay team managed a bronze medal

with a 6-1 victory over Zone 8 Salmon Arm Cavaliers. Athletes from Trail, Fruitvale, Montrose, Rossland, Castlegar, Robson, Slocan, Grand Forks, Greenwood, Kaslo, Nakusp, Nelson, Salmo, and points in between, represented the West Kootenay Boundary. More than 3,500 seniors competed in 26 events, making it one of the most well-attended Senior Games ever. The Fraser Valley (Zone 3) athletes took home the largest medal haul, 404, with 168 gold, 139 silver and 97 bronze. The Lower Mainland (Zone 4) and South Central (Zone 8) rounded out the top three. Some individual medal results include

Karen Lees of Trail, who cycled to three silver medals in competitive time trial, road race and hill climb, while Rino De Biasion claimed silver in men’s 75-79 cycling time trial and bronze in the hill climb. Leslie Anderson of Rossland claimed gold in men’s 65-69 horseshoes, and Trail’s Jim and Dorothy Harold each captured silver in their respective horseshoe competitions. Rusty Denny of Salmo bowled to bronze in 55-59 women’s individual ‘A’ division, and teamed up with Lee McNeil of Salmo and four Nelson bowlers to win silver in mixed, while Trail’s Ron Cameron placed second in men’s 75-79 tennis singles.

Juniors take club championship

Champion Lakes Golf Course held it’s club championship on the weekend with Alex Rugg (right) and Aiden Browell winning overall low gross and low net respectively. By Times Staff Close to 50 golfers teed off at Champion Lakes Golf Course Saturday looking for good results, and a chance to pocket a cool $10,000 in cash. The club championship saw golfers hit 18 holes in three different flights with a $10,000 prize awaiting any duffer who could get a hole-in-one on the 175-yard par 3, second hole, courtesy of Corey Bell and TyCor Climate Control Inc. While a few came close, none could capitalize on the cash,

however, many went home with deuce-pots, long drives, and closest to pin prizes as well as awards for finishing tops in their flights. In the end, junior golfer Alex Rugg was zoned in shooting a 1-under 71 to win the overall low gross championship, while Aiden Browell took home low net honours with a 63. In the first flight, 0-12.3, Thomas Talarski, yet another junior, claimed low gross with a 72, while Nick Uhrynowich came second with a 74.

Trevor Browell meanwhile captured low net with a 67, and Scott Browell placed second with a 71. In the second flight, 12.6-17, Bell received some recompense for sponsoring the hole-in-one by shooting low gross with a sparkling 82, while Ray Porcellato came in second with an impressive 87. On the strength of a 38 on the front nine, Wayne Swann took home low net with a 69, and Glen Rugg took runner-up honours with a 72 net. Jim Berukoff claimed top spot in the 17.2-36 handicap with an 89, and Brian Pearson placed second, one shot back with a 90. Wayne Hurlbert won low net with a 68 and Will McInnis came in with a 69.

Former Trail Smoke Eater Logan Proulx was named team captain of the Selkirk College Saints this weekend, and will lead the Saints into the Cominco Arena at 7 p.m. tonight to take on his former team, in their first exhibition match of the season.

Selkirk Saints vs Trail Smoke Eaters tonight By Times Contributor As the Selkirk College Saints get ready to tangle with the Trail Smoke Eaters tonight at 7 p.m. at the Cominco Arena, a familiar face will be wearing the ‘C’ for the Saints. Trail native and Selkirk second-year forward Logan Proulx has been named team captain for the 2013-14 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season. The former Trail Smoke Eater captain is coming off a stellar rookie season for Selkirk that saw him tie for second in team and league scoring behind former teammate Jordan Wood. He was also named a BCIHL FirstTeam All-Star and helped lead the Saints to their first-ever league championship. “Logan is a natural leader who sets the tone every day with his high compete level and his enthusiasm for being at the rink,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “He’s a high character guy who played a key role within our leadership

group on and off the ice last season and really distinguished himself as someone who had the respect and trust of his teammates. Logan was the ideal choice to take over the captaincy and lead our team this year.” Proulx’s junior playing career included stops in the Western Hockey League with the Edmonton Oil Kings and the British Columbia Hockey League with the Trail Smoke Eaters and Cowichan Valley Capitals. “It means a tremendous amount to me to be chosen as captain this year,” says Proulx. “To be part of any leadership group is an honour and a privilege. I take a lot of pride in being a leader and it’s something that has always come naturally to me. Last year we set a high standard as a team with our work ethic and I think that was the start of something we now expect of ourselves and each other as Selkirk Saints.” Proulx played in 110 BCHL games, scoring 21 goals and adding 18 assists, and was named captain of the Smokies to start the 2011 season before

being traded to Cowichan in early November. With the Saints last season Proulx counted 14 goals and 24 assists in 21 matches for the Saints. “I’m really excited to have all the boys back in town and to get back on the ice with the team. I’m looking forward to welcoming the new guys to Castlegar and getting back into the swing of things. We had a very successful season last year and I know the guys want to compete for and win another BCIHL championship this year.” Selkirk’s leadership group will also include a pair of players — Scott Swiston and Dylan Smith — who are returning as assistant captains for a second season. The third ‘A’ will be worn by second-year forward Connor McLaughlin, who finished third on the team in points last season with 27. “Connor was one of our hardest workers and best conditioned players last season,” says Dubois. “He plays a gritty, responsible game and he’s going to be a great fit wearing an ‘A’ along with Scott and Dylan.”

Woods remains number 1

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Two snapshots from Liberty National could illustrate the fortunes and future at the top of the world golf ranking. One was of Tiger Woods dropping to his hands and knees with back pain after hitting a shot so far left that it landed in a pond on the other side of an adjacent fairway. The other was of Masters champion Adam Scott swinging his driver, a beautiful blend of balance, rhythm and power. Scott went on to win The Barclays, partly because of his bogeyfree 66 Sunday, mostly because the other

contenders fell apart down the stretch. No apologies were necessary. Woods has won plenty of tournaments that way. “I feel like I’ve been given a bit of a gift,” Scott said. “But I’ll take it.” Woods finished one shot behind, unable to atone for three bad swings that led to bogeys on the back nine. The big picture was Monday morning. Scott moved up to a career-best No. 2 in the world, but he’s really no closer to Woods than he ever has been. Even if the Australian were to win the next three FedEx Cup playoff events - about as easy as winning four

straight majors - he still wouldn’t replace Woods at No. 1. That’s how big the gap is between Woods and the rest of golf. Woods hasn’t won a major in five years, but he’s still winning against strong fields. And even though nagging injuries seem to be piling up, he’s winning more than anyone else. That’s what Scott will have to learn to do if he wants to be the best in the world. This is only the second time Scott has had a multiplewin season on the PGA Tour. The other was in 2004, when he won The Players Championship and the Booz Allen Classic at Congressional. Around the world, he has won at least once in each of the last 13 seasons, but never more than two wins in any season. Scott now has 21 wins worldwide, leaving him 70 behind Woods.

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - War - what is it good for? Ratings, apparently. TV’s “Storage Wars” - where crafty teams of professional bidders scan storage units with flashlights and look for clues that suggest gems such as Rolexes, rare furniture, or even pianos -has become wildly popular since its 2010 debut, drawing millions of viewers every week and spawning expansions into New York and Texas. One fan of the show is now starring in the north-of-the-border spin-off “Storage Wars Canada,” debuting Thursday. “I thought it was modern-day treasure hunting,” says Roy Dirnbeck of Mississauga, Ont. “I used to sneak off to auctions. After hitting a couple good ones early, I couldn’t believe the kinds of things that people were leaving behind.” The show premieres Thursday on OLN.

MTV Awards

Cyrus shakes up show

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - It may not be a good thing for her, but Miley Cyrus had the most memorable moment at the MTV Video Music Awards. The provocative pop singer was the hot topic at Sunday night’s show: Cyrus eclipsed Lady Gaga’s opening performance of her new single, Katy Perry’s closing rendition of her latest hit and Kanye West’s artsy set. The 20-year-old even grabbed more attention than Justin Timberlake’s performance with his ‘N Sync band mates. Cyrus twerked and gyrated, stripped and swayed. She sang, too. She had a helper at the VMAS: Robin Thicke. After performing her edgy hit, “We Can’t Stop,” she sang the first verse of Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” and then grinded on the R&B singer in a nude bikini. The wild child also slapped a girl’s butt onstage. Twitter said early Monday that Cyrus was mentioned 4.5 million times on the social network site, ahead of Timberlake’s 2.9 mentions. Cyrus and Thicke’s performance led in tweets per minute peaks with 306,100.

Hating sex may be psychological issue Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

chological issues that were not resolved or sensory issues that were never addressed. We commend you for being willing to work on this. Please talk to your doctor and also contact AASECT (American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists) at aasect.org. They may be able to guide you toward a healthier, happier outlook. Dear Annie: I am a first-time grandma to a beautiful baby girl. We live in the same town. I offered to be the caregiver at their home, but my daughter-in-law prefers to take the baby with her on a 50-mile round-trip to a daycare

My son and his wife have known each other only 13 months. Between the pregnancy, the marriage, the birth and moving into their home, I know it’s been stressful, so I’ve tried to be patient. What is a reasonable expectation for visiting the new baby? -- Want To Know My Granddaughter Dear Want: There is no definitive timetable for visiting. It depends on the flexibility and schedules of those involved, as well as the willingness of the participants. Your daughter-in-law apparently is not keen on having you around, and your son is caught in the middle. Don’t push. Instead, make it your goal to become closer to your daughter-in-law. Be her friend. Call her. Ask how she’s doing. Let her know you value her and think she’s a good wife and mother. See whether you can arrange an excursion to the mall or a concert -- whatever interests

her. If you can help her to be more comfortable around you, the visits will likely increase. Dear Annie: Please tell “Need Help,” the teenager who has mood swings, that most teachers check their email throughout the summer and during school

vacations. No matter when it is, most of us are just an email away. We still care about our students, regardless of whether it’s summertime, winter vacation or spring break. That letter broke my heart. It sounds like a student I had this year. I hope he

emails me. -- Teacher in Louisville, Ky. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net

near her job. I was devastated by that decision, but accepted it. What I’m having trouble understanding is how often I see the baby. During my few short visits, I have not felt comfortable in their home. I communicate with my son because my daughter-in-law seems very standoffish. I told my son I don’t wish to be a burden on their household routine, but twice I made arrangements to see the baby only to be told on the day of that visit that I had to leave after 30 minutes. The last visit was five weeks ago. I phoned my son and begged to see the baby more often. He agreed at the time that once a week (depending on their schedule) was not unreasonable. I set up an hour visit for this week, and when I arrived at their door, they were preparing to leave the house. My visit, which meant so much to me, was totally forgotten.

Dear Annie: I am 46 years old and have one problem. I HATE sex. Everyone, including my boyfriend of seven years, thinks there’s something wrong with me. I’m sure there is, but I have hated having sex since I was first intimate. I can’t believe he has stayed with me this long. I don’t like to be touched by anyone. As soon as someone gets close, I move away so they don’t accidentally brush against me. I force myself to have sex with my boyfriend and pretend I enjoy it because I know it’s not fair to deny him.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) When talking to others today, you will be aware of what’s going on behind the scenes. It’s almost as if you have X-ray vision today. (Kinda spooky.)

Furthermore, you will be relentless about going after what you want to discover. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Discussions with others will be powerful and intense

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You might encounter someone powerful today, especially in a position of authority. They might even intimidate you. However, a cooperative discussion could yield ideas about how to improve things.
