Alley Bash celebrates Sanctuary BY ART HARRISON Times Staff

Trail’s Sanctuary pre-teen after school program is marking 15 years of operation this summer and the team that is organizing the gala Alley Bash planned for Sept. 14 at the Royal Theatre in Trail to celebrate the anniversary is excited to be bringing the event to the downtown core. “This will be a unique, innovative celebration for a program that is also unique and innovative in its approach to supporting pre-teens in our community,” said Sanctuary director, Betty Anne Marino. “This is a thank you to the community for 15 years of support of Sanctuary.” The movie portion of the bash is now finalized with the confirmation that “Turbo,” a newly released animated feature from DreamWorks Studios will be the free family film offering from 2 to 4 p.m. followed by cake and beverages for the kids. The celebration continues after with a more adult focus starting with the Champagne Reception at 6:30 p.m., followed by the See SANCTUARY, Page 3

Society expanding trail network


Forensics team investigates vandalism BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

In light of the recent spate of deliberate damage to village property, Salmo RCMP have enlisted the services of a forensic identification team, based in Nelson, to help identify the suspects, confirmed Cpl. Riordan Bellman, of the village’s detachment. Last week, Mayor Ann Henderson issued a notice to Salmo and area residents expressing concern about increased vandalism to village property, and village staff having tires slashed and other “events” that posed safety concerns and risk of injury. “Salmo RCMP are working with the village together to address the surrounding issues of vandalism in the community,” said Bellman.

Crews improving drainage along Miral Heights trail BY ART HARRISON Times Staff

The network of walking and biking trails above Miral Heights and East Trail has seen growing use since it’s inception in 2011 and the addition of a new section above Sunningdale last year expanded the available tracks considerably. The Kootenay Columbia Trails Society (KCTS), the local organization responsible for the planning, building, and maintenance of the extensive system, has plans to extend the existing section from Miral Heights to eventually join up with the Sunningdale trail. The combined Miral Heights/Bluff trail currently runs six kilometres across the eastern side of the Columbia River Valley with the expectation that the extension to the Sunningdale trail will eventually total almost nine km in total. KCTS trails manager, Stewart

Spooner is hoping the extension will be completed by the end of October. “I’m a bit of an evangelist when it comes to trails,” said Spooner. “It’s a healthy, fun, and affordable form of recreation. Going out and exploring the trails is way cheaper than most other community’s forms of recreation.” Although many of the trails around Rossland are more challenging and require a relatively high fitness level to hike and high degree of skill to bike, the trails lower in the valley around Trail are more moderate, and are rated easy or intermediate. The Miral Heights trail, which begins at the top of the subdivision in East Trail, currently has the trail works crew improving drainage in areas and shoring up the trail bed. “We’re all riders so we know what needs to be the done to keep the trails in shape,” said KCTS crew member, Cam Spooner. “Most of the time water is the biggest problem.”

In an area like the West Kootenay, that can see considerable spring runoff and early rainfall, the manager and crew of KCTS has to be able to recognize the natural course of water flow on the mountain sides and re-direct it when possible and bridge it when it can’t be altered. In addition to the extensions planned for the network in the Trail area, work is also planned to expand trails in Montrose and Fruitvale as well. “I’m personally delighted, this has been a passion of mine forever and it’s great to see this coming to fruition in Trail,” said KCTS director, Hal Harrison. “They’ve had the trails in Rossland for years and I think some of us envied them for it. It’s great that we’re getting this opportunity to develop more down here and in Montrose.” To become a member of the KCTS and for maps of much of the 150 kilometres of maintained trails in our area go to

Concrete effort

FROM PAGE 1 He acknowledged that Salmo detachment has been called to remove disruptive people from the village hall this summer, although none of the calls were deemed an “emergency.” Confrontation between the mayor and a group of residents began after council tendered out the village’s garbage contract and awarded it to Alpine Contracting over Salmo Garbage Services, a company that held the contract for over two decades, according to Coun. Janine Haughton. “Why on earth would saving taxpayers of our village over $20,000 in garbage fees incense folks to riot,” she said. “It is beyond my comprehension.” Bellman said that police presence has not been requested at council, however he did attend one meeting with a quarterly report, which “helped keep the meeting flowing on track.” “Being the focus of others displaced anger and venom is tiring to say the least,” said Haughton. “Trying to carry on and conduct business in a respectful and forward moving manner is almost impossible.” Bellman asks anyone with information to contact the department at 357-2212 or call Crime Stoppers.

CAO ‘released’ after a month in new position By Sheri Regnier Times Staff

The long weekend was quiet in the village, according to Kandy Schroder, Salmo’s deputy clerk/ treasurer, however during that time, one new detail was released to citizens that adds to the village’s list of on-going troubles. Recently-hired chief administrative officer (CAO), Bob Payette, whose first day was Aug. 6, has been “released” of his duties by the village, confirmed Schroder, interim CAO. Although present for one meeting Aug. 13, Payette was noticeably absent in council Aug. 27, when Schroder held the seat to record the session. “Mayor Henderson and coun-

cil exercised Section 152 of the Community Charter,” said Schroder, adding, “we cannot provide the public with further information at this time except that we are undertaking a review of qualifications for this position.” Under that section of the Charter, which outlines the terms for dismissal of officers, the village has retained a lawyer to ensure the process was followed accordingly. Payette was chosen from 60 applicants, and replaced Scott Sommerville, who left to become city manager in Kimberly. “The Mayor and council are currently working towards a new position with a better fit for our community,” said Schroder.

Three fires burning in Slocan Valley By Kirsten Hildebrand Nelson Star

Three forest fires are being monitored but not suppressed near Slocan Lake in the Valhalla Provincial Park. “Due to the ecological benefits of fire and the remote location and steep terrain, the Wildfire Management Branch and BC Parks are monitoring the wildfires but not suppress-

ing them,” says Southeast Fire Centre information officer Karlie Shaughnessy. Two fires burn near Wee Sandy Creek with one 2.5 kilometres west of Slocan Lake at 10 hectares and one 8.5 kilometres west of Slocan Lake at two hectares. The third fire is 10.4 hectares and burns near Beatrice Creek at 3.3 kilometres west of Slocan Lake.

Fortis lockout impacts city’s project NHL player caught up in bear hunt controversy

By Alistair Waters Kelowna Capital News

The labour dispute between Fortis B.C. its unionized electrical workers in Kelowna is having a direct adverse effect on the city’s biggest and most visible public works project. City Hall says will not complete the Bernard Avenue Revitalization project this fall, as planned, because of the nineweek-old lock-out of

electrical Fortis workers by the company. The city said Tuesday it is revising the schedule for the third and final phase of the $14 million revitalization project and will only complete the stretch of Bernard Avenue from St. Paul Street to Ellis Street this fall because it does not require underground electrical work. Completion of of

what is now being called “phase 3a” is scheduled for the end of November with work on the the remaining section, from Pandosy Street to Ellis, to begin in the early spring of next year. The entire project is now slated to be complete in June 2014. “It’s a regrettable situation, but to mitigate impact to businesses only the area

where we know the work can be completed will be started,” said Bill Berry, the city’s director of design  and construction services. Phase 3a of the work started on Tuesday. The first phase, from Richter Street to St.Paul Street and the second phase, from the Sails’ sculpture at the fot of Bernard to Pandosy Street were completed last fall and last spring respectively. The labour dispute between Fortis and its workers has dragged on since July.

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - An NHL player has been caught up in a demand by a British Columbia First Nation that trophy hunting be banned in its territory. Minnesota Wild defenceman Clayton Stoner was photographed by a Heiltsuk Tribal Council field technician with parts of his grizzly kill this spring. Stoner, who’s a B.C. native, issued a statement saying he received a licence and shot the bear legally and that he’ll continue to hunt with family and friends in British Columbia. The band says the bear its field crews named “Cheeky” was shot three times by trophy hunters last May, its head, fur and paws were removed and the body was left to rot in the Kwatna Estuary. The Heiltsuk say Stoner’s hunt is an example of why trophy hunting should be banned along coastal B.C., saying it’s at odds with First Nations’ values to shoot an animal and not use its meat. The band claims trophy hunting makes no economic sense compared with eco-tourism, isn’t sound science and that it has the responsibility to protect the culturally-significant bears.


Fruit growers reeling after storm By Steve Kidd

Penticton Western News

Fruit growers in the Oliver area are still reeling and assessing the damage after a storm tore through the region last week. A storm late Thursday afternoon brought driving rain in the Penticton area, but by the time it reached Covert Farms north of Oliver, the severity had increased. “It was just devastating. We got the

wind and the rain and hail It was very violent. I lived here all my life and I never saw one like this,” said Greg Norton, a grower in the Willowbrook Road area, who said the storm damage extends from just north of Oliver to as far south as Road 16. “First time in 25 years. It’s just unbelievably devastating and now the peaches are rotting.” Norton estimates

he lost about a third of his peach crop, all the fruit remaining on the trees, including one late variety he hadn’t begun to pick. The financial extent of the damage is still awaiting assessment, but he expects it to be severe. “It just tore the peaches wide open, they’re done,” said Norton. While he has lost a lot of the profit from his crop, Norton already had cherries picked and a good portion of his peaches so he considers himself lucky compared to his neighbours who are heavily invested in apples. “I feel fortunate. If you are going to get a disaster, at least it’s at the end of the sea-

son,” said Norton, noting that apple growers were just getting ready for their first pick of the season. I don’t have any apples, but my neighbours do and it’s awful.” “We just got annihilated,” said Rick Duarte. “They are all pretty much for juice, there is nothing salvageable for the fresh market.” Duarte feels sure that SunRype has enough demand to take care of the large amount of apples available for juice, but said there is another problem for apple growers. While the packing house is accepting dented apples for juicing, they are turning away apples where the hail has pierced the skin.

Harper heads to G20 in flux over Syria


Lawn fight escalates

THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG - Richard Hykawy says he wants to set a legal precedent for every Canadian who is forced to cut grass or clear snow from city property adjacent to their home - a situation he calls worse than slavery. “Back in the day, slaves were kept. They were clothed, maybe not well. They were fed, maybe not well. But they were provided equipment and given what they needed to (perform) the work,” Hykawy said Wednesday outside a Winnipeg court. “In the case of the city, we’re not clothed, we’re not fed.” Hykawy is struggling to launch a challenge under the Briefs Charter of Rights and Freedoms. He has refused for the last few years to mow the grass on a strip of city property next to his suburban house, which sits on a corner lot in the well-to-do Island Lakes neighbourhood. He has been fined hundreds of dollars, in part to cover the cost of mowing performed by city workers. The military veteran, in his late 40s, argues that the city’s bylaw requiring homeowners to maintain property they do not own amounts to forced labour and a violation of his rights.

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper has departed today for an international meeting that was once forged out of economic tumult and is now being reshaped by an unfolding political crisis. The G20 leaders’ summit in St. Petersburg, Russia was supposed to be focused on global economics - on nurturing stability in countries rocked for the past five years by slowdowns and bank failures. But with amped-up tensions over Syria’s alleged use of chemical weapons, even summit host Vladimir Putin has had to concede that this year’s G20 will have to adapt and tackle the question of what to do about the violence and loss of life. Harper spoke with British Prime Minister David Cameron about Syria before leaving for Russia this morning. Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird is accompanying the prime minister and will meet separately with counterparts from the United States, Brazil, China, Russia and Turkey. That’s a big change as far as G20


THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY A Statistics Canada study suggests that the lure of jobs in Alberta’s energy sector isn’t enough to persuade out-of-province workers to make a permanent move. The study found there were plenty of people moving to Alberta between 2004 and 2009. But only one in four who were coming for jobs decided to make Alberta their primary residence. They listed their home province on their tax returns. “While some of the

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The Bank of Canada is keeping its trendsetting interest rate unchanged at one per cent, where it has sat for three years and is likely to remain well into 2014. Newly minted bank governor Stephen Poloz is showing no signs of breaking from the monetary policies of his predecessor, Mark Carney, who took up a new post this summer as head of the Bank of England. In the explanatory note to Wednesday’s announcement, the Bank of Canada says it intends no changes as long as considerable slack remains in the economy, inflation remains muted and household finances continue to improve.

lobbying on the sidelines of the summit. India, for example, has said it would prefer to wait for full results of a UN chemical weapons inspection. The British Parliament last week voted down a resolution calling for military action. Canada and Australia, meanwhile, say they believe U.S. intelligence that places the blame for a chemical weapons attack in a Damascus suburb on the Assad regime. The landscape is different than it was in June at the G8 meeting in Ireland, where Russia’s stance on Syria prompted Harper to say it was more like a “G7 plus one.” And yet Harper, like Putin, was also hoping for a summit that was focused on the global economy - a policy area entirely in the prime minister’s wheelhouse. Canada and Russia were on the same page when it came to wanting more definitive commitments from G20 nations on how they would tackle their deficits and debts, planning for fiscal consolidation as stimulus projects wind down.

summit history goes - countries such as China and Russia have resisted any previous attempts to make it more than an economic forum. Foreign ministers met under its auspices last year, but well before the actual summit took place in Los Cabos, Mexico. Russia, which insists on the primacy of the United Nations where it has a veto on the security council, participated with great reservations. “Putin does his calculations,” said Gordon Smith, a distinguished fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), and a former sherpa for Prime Minister Jean Chretien at several G7 and G8 summits. “He realizes that on Syria he’s not going to be alone in advocating caution, but that may have interesting longer term dimensions as to where the G20 goes and whether the G20 starts to talk about political issues which it hasn’t done before.” Indeed, other countires are not as keen as say the United States and France to sanction a strike against the regime of Bashar Assad.

inter-provincial workers observed in this study subsequently made a residential move to Alberta, at least as identified on their T1 tax return, most did not,” wrote the authors, Christine Laporte, Yuqian Lu and Grant Schellenberg. “It is likely that factors such as family ties, social networks, organizational arrangements (e.g. daycare, school enrolment), home ownership and quality of life were important factors,” they wrote. “Nonetheless, the

prospects of readily available jobs elsewhere had appeal. When weighed against the costs of moving interprovincially, the benefits of working inter-provincially was the option chosen by these individuals,” said the report. “Quite clearly, people react to employment opportunities in various ways,and, more broadly, labour markets adjust in various ways.” About three-quarters of the job seekers were men under

the age of 35 from British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Atlantic Canada. Roughly half of those were employed in construction and oil and gas extraction. More than one-third of female interprovincial employees were working in accommodation

and food services or retail trade. In 2004, there were between 62,000 and 67,500 interprovincial employees in Alberta. By 2008, the number of interprovincial employees had increased to 133,000, making up 6.2 per cent of the workforce.

Sensible BC campaign a harder sell than anti-HST


undits often say the political scene in B.C. is reminiscent of the wild west. A region where the citizens dictate the rules of the land and are quick to rise up against politics and politicians that undermine the greater good. We saw that attitude and fervour take down many politicians and policies. From fallen premiers to repealed taxes, the voice of the people tends to resonate louder in B.C. than in other parts of the country. Perhaps it's due to the fact that many of us have a vested interest in all things B.C., whether it's protecting our hard-earned money, the pristine environment we enjoy, or the sanctity of an elected office we bestow upon politicians. People in this province are more apt to voice an opinion than sit by quietly. Of course that flies in the face of the numbers released for voter turnout in the recent election but I believe B.C. people are passionate about many things and if it grabs their attention then the snowball begins to roll. And so on the eve of the Sensible BC campaign, set to kick off on Monday, one wonders what the response will be. We ask that same ques-

tion in this week's Trail Times web poll so it will be interesting to see the level of response and the general thought of its success. There has been a constant decriminalization drum beat for some time in the province. Add to that the high-profile incarceration of Mark Emery over seeds, the voter referendum supporting legalization by our American neighbours in Washington, the constant and expanding gang warfare bubbling from the Lower Mainland and the chorus of prominent former politicians and law enforcement people suggesting a new tact in the War on Drugs needs to be taken. With all those things taken into account, one wonders how the Sensible BC campaign could possibly fail. But it won't be as easy as it might appear to its ardent supporters. Residents of this province are still basking in the glow of the successful repeal-the-Harmonized Sales Tax campaign, which basically told the government where to file its new tax. However, that was an easy one. When it comes to taxes, most citizens are on the same page. That made selling the anti-HST campaign


BERTRAND Times in Trail

rather easy. However, the Sensible BC campaign's only similarity to the repeal-HST campaign is that the ground rules are the same – get 10 per cent of the registered voters in each riding, roughly a total of 400,000 names across the province, to sign the petition from Sept. 9 to Dec. 5 and then present it to the government. The anti-HST campaign brought out two opposing views. The government bought millions of dollars in advertising to pitch its side of the issue and plead with British Columbians to keep the harmonized tax in place. Meanwhile, the consumer-driven opponents also had a hefty bankroll and had enough boots on the ground to motivate and mobilize people. Which begs the question, “How will the Sensible

BC campaign play out?” So far there hasn't been any push from the either side of the issue. I'm surprised we haven't seen government officials, at the provincial or federal level, begin a media campaign to warn of the dangers of passing this proposal. And that may still come. The anti-HST campaign drew volunteers like flies to a picnic but I doubt that will be the same for the Sensible BC campaign. “We have people who are worried that if they volunteer, they might get in trouble with their employer, they’ll be judged in their community if people think they’re a marijuana user or something like that. That’s something we have to struggle with,” leading proponent Dana Larsen told reporters last month. That assumption can be very real despite the fact that former police chiefs, former attorney generals, former mayors and even some current politicians, the most notable lately has been federal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, have come out in support of decriminalization. Those against it will paint a picture of a generation of stoners that will emerge from the loosening of marijuana laws. How pot becomes a gateway to

harder drugs. However, I doubt they'll point to the repealing of prohibition or legalization of gambling as fostering social ills. On the other side, those in favour of the campaign will point to the waste of police resources, the clogged court system and archaic laws that make criminals out of recreational users. They might avoid talk of addiction and its consequences. It's an interesting dynamic that might not be played out in the media at all. The Pattison Outdoor Advertising, B.C.'s largest billboard company, refused to sell billboard space to the campaign. However, after a fierce public backlash the company relented. I wonder whether the topic will be too hot for many politicians and companies to take sides. That's to be expected from that segment of society. So that puts the question in the rightful hands of the citizens. Whether you're for it or against it, it appears once again the people of B.C. will get a chance to voice their opinion. And that's the way it should be, regardless of the topic. Guy Bertrand is the managing editor of the Trail Times

Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein points to three psychological barriers to accepting climate change that may also help explain why it’s easier for people to believe in chemtrails: People look to readily available examples when assessing danger, focus “on risks or hazards that have an identifiable perpetrator”, and pay more attention to immediate threats than long-term ones. Researchers Ezra Markowitz and Azim Shariff of the University of Oregon Psychology and Environmental Studies departments add a few more, including that human-caused climate change “provokes selfdefensive biases” and its politicization “fosters ideological polarization.” People who subscribe to unbelievable conspiracy theories may feel helpless, so they see themselves as victims of powerful forces – or as heroes standing up to those forces. Whether it’s to deny real problems or promulgate imaginary ones, it helps reinforce a worldview that is distrustful of governments, media, scientists and shadowy cabals variously referred to as banksters, global elites, the Illuminati or the New World Order. The problem is that science denial is, in the case of chemtrails, a wacky distraction and, in the case of climate change denial, a barrier to addressing an urgent, critical problem. Science is rarely 100 per cent certain, but it’s the best tool we have for coming to terms with our actions and their consequences, and for finding solutions to problems. The science is clear: humancaused climate change is the most pressing threat to humanity, and we must work to resolve it. We don’t have time for debunked conspiracy theories.

Lessons learned from Verizon’s flirting An editorial from the Hamilton Spectator Now that the dust has settled around the potential Canadian expansion of Verizon Communications Inc., what do we know? We know that apparently, this was much ado about not much. Verizon’s chief executive officer said Monday that the American wireless telecom giant never seriously considered an entry into our $19 billion wireless market, although meetings were held and discussions took place. But Lowell McAdam says there wasn’t enough return for his shareholders, so the idea is dead for the foreseeable future. We know that Canadians really hate, or at least have a healthy dislike, for our domestic wireless companies - Rogers

Communications, Telus Corp and BCE Inc. We hate that we pay so much for our phone services. We hate being locked into contracts. We hate feeling like we’re getting gouged, even though that can sometimes be more perception than reality. There’s a widely held view, and it is shared by the federal government, that we need more competition in the wireless market. But the idea that foreign competition would lower prices gets a lot of traction in this corner. The mere hint of Verizon coming here caused Canada’s largest carriers to roll out new plans to attract high-volume data use customers as well as business and family users. It’s not a stretch to think Canadian players would up their game

faced with competition from a world leader. Here’s the rub. You can see it in further results in that same opinion poll: Canadians want more wireless competition, but we don’t think international competitors should have an unfair edge. And that’s precisely what the Harper government is planning. Had Verizon moved in, it would have been on a playing field tilted against Canadians. Yes, many of us have problems with our wireless provider. But we also aren’t losing sight of how important the sector is - it does support nearly 300,000 Canadian jobs, after all. Foreign competition is fine, provided it’s not getting preferential treatment from our own government.

OBITUARIES GRAY, BRENT LEIGH — July 16, 1959 – August 24, 2013 Brent Gray, a very talented drummer and golf professional passed away peacefully at home with his wife Christine and daughter Cassandra (Marsh) by his side. Brent was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta where he developed his love of music and golf. As a percussionist he played with the Edmonton youth orchestra and was the drummer in numerous bands. Upon joining his family in Trail he was a member of the Maple Leaf Band, Rossland Light Opera and Emerson. As a golf professional he was an exceptional player, instructor and manager. In both of his career choices the people who knew him could see his passion, ability and knowledge. Brent’s real love was for his family and friends. Brent did not need to talk of love with those he held dear- he showed it in every encounter. Brent is now with his parents Norma and Glenn (Betty) Gray. Christine and Cassie will mourn his loss and celebrate his life along with his sister Sharron (Doug) Humford, his niece Brandy, his brother Glenn, step-son Richard Marsh, grandchildren Connor and Oliver and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Brent’s family would like to thank Dr. Andrea Jenkins who supported and cared for Brent with compassion and understanding throughout his battle; Dr. Scotland and the wonderful and dedicated staff in oncology; the community nurses, home care staff and the Greater Trail Hospice Society. Please join Christine and Cassie in remembering Brent on Saturday, September 7th, 2013 from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm at the MacIntyre Room at the Cominco Arena. Al Grywacheski of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with the arrangements. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at

Dancing stars named THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Busy cancer patient Valerie Harper leads a class of 12 amateur hoofers in the upcoming 17th season of “Dancing With the Stars.” For a show that has reached an increasingly older audience, ABC added an injection of youth with reality stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi of “Jersey Shore” and Ozzy’s kid Jack Osbourne. Harper has defied odds with her survival since being diagnosed earlier this year with brain cancer.

She recently filmed a movie role and joined a Nick at Nite reunion of “The Mary Tyler Moore” cast. Other contestants are Bill Nye, the “Science Guy”; “Pretty Little Liars” actor Brant Daugherty; former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson; singer and actress Christina Milian; actress Elizabeth Berkley; “High School Musical” actor Corbin Bleu; “Glee” actress Amber Riley; country comic Bill Engvall; and “King of Queens” actress Leah Remini.

Prolific writer known for sophisticated works THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO Author Frederik Pohl, who over decades gained a reputation of being a literate and sophisticated writer of science fiction, has died at age 93. His wife, Elizabeth Hull, said Tuesday that Pohl died Monday at a hospital after experiencing respiratory problems at his home in the Chicago suburb of Palatine. News of his death was first announced by his granddaughter, Emily Pohl-Weary, in a tweet. Pohl wrote more than 40 novels. Two of his better-known works were “The Space Merchants,” written in the early 1950s with Cyril M. Kornbluth, and 1978’s “Gateway,” a winner of the Hugo Award for science fiction writing. Pohl was a literary agent and editor

before getting his own work published in science fiction magazines of the 1930s. He’s credited with launching the careers of James Blish and Larry Niven. “It is difficult to sum up the significance of Frederik Pohl to the science fiction field in few words,” Pohl’s editor James Frenkel said in an obituary released by the family. “He was instrumental to the flowering of the field in the mid-to-late 20th century, and it is hard to dispute that the field would be much the poorer without his talent and remarkable body of work as a magazine and book editor, a collaborator and a solo author.” Pohl’s career began in 1937 with the sale of a poem, “Elegy to a Dead Satellite: Luna,” to Amazing Stories magazine. He went on to edit

Astonishing Stories, Super Science Stories, Galaxy and If magazines, as well as an original anthology series, Star Science Fiction. As a book editor, he worked on Samuel R. Delaney’s “Dhalgren” and Joanna Russ’s “The Female Man.” As a literary agent, Pohl represented Isaac Asimov, Algis Budrys, Hal Clement, Fritz Leiber and John Wyndham. Pohl was born in New York City in 1919. Despite dropping out of high school, his ambition was to be a professional writer. Friends described him as an avid reader, who read the works of Tolstoy in addition to science fiction magazines. He served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was stationed in Italy, and after his discharge wrote advertising copy for a mail order

publisher. After becoming a literary agent again, Pohl helped Asimov publish his first novel “Pebble in the Sky” in 1950. Although he devoted much of his time to writing in the 1970s, he also was science fiction editor at Bantam Books. In 2009, Pohl launched “The Way the Future Blogs,” in which he wrote about his life, the science-fiction community, science and championed progressive politics. Elizabeth Hull, English professor emerita of William Rainey Harper College and his wife of 29 years, said his remains will be cremated and a memorial service will be held at a future date. Along with his wife, Pohl is survived by a son, three daughters and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Harper’s hockey history book to hit shelves THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Stephen Harper can soon add another line to his resume: published author. The prime minister’s book on the history of hockey is set to hit store shelves Nov. 5. Titled “A Great Game: The Forgotten Leafs and the Rise of Professional Hockey,” the tome looks at the early years of the game.

It will also feature photographs of famous arenas and the game’s earliest star players. “Drawing on extensive archival records and illustrations, histories of the sport, and newspaper files, A Great Game delves into the fascinating early years of ice hockey,” publisher Simon and Schuster Canada said in a release Wednesday. “It tells of the hockey heroes and

hard-boiled businessmen who built the game, and the rise and fall of legendary teams pursuing the Stanley Cup.” Harper has spent years on the book, reportedly setting aside a few minutes each day to work on it. He is a member of the Society of International Hockey Research. ceeds from the sale of the book will go to the Canadian Forces Personnel and Family Support Services.

Roller Derby

Mountain Mayhem set to roll in Rossland By Times Staff The West Kootenay Women’s Roller Derby delivers its final bout of the season as Mountain Mayhem IV rolls out on the track Sunday at the Rossland Arena. This year’s finale will showcase the league-leading Nelson Killjoys versus Salmo’s Babes of Brutality. The Killjoys dominated the Babes, beating them 282-97 in a June tilt, but the Babes bounced back with a 198-167 win over the Rossland-Trail Roller Girls that put them in second spot, and secured them yet another shot at the Golden Boot. Last season the Babes lost to the Angels in the championship bout, and they will look for a different outcome against the Killjoys this year. In the third-place match up,

the Rossland-Trail Roller Girls take on the Dam City Rollers from Castlegar. The Roller Girls beat the Rollers 204-167 way back in May, but Dam City has improved steadily all season, giving the Killjoys all they could handle in their last battle, a close 222-176 victory for the Nelson team Aug. 9. The Rossland-Trail Roller Girls will face off against the Dam City Rollers at 3 p.m. Sunday, followed by the Killjoys and Babes of Brutality at 5 p.m. Doors open at 2 p.m. at the Rossland Arena. Tickets are $10 in advance from: The Red Pair 2002 Columbia- Trail, Cedar Ave Salon 1334 Cedar Ave. or online www.kootenayrollerderby. com. Adults $15 at the door. Kids 10 years and under just $2 at the door. A beer garden, derby merchandise and 50/50 draw will be available.

“Before Coming To OK Tire, I Thought A ‘Rigid Sidewall’ held Up A Roof.”

By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

The Birchbank Golf and Country Club awarded its annual scholarships to two very deserving Club members last week. Club pro Dennis Bradley presented Jeff Horan, 18, and Ryan Dixon, 18, each with a $2,500 scholarship to continue their studies at the University of Alberta. Horan and Dixon are Trail natives and longtime members at Birchbank, and both worked at the golf course over the summer, Horan as a back-shop worker, and Dixon, in various customer service positions. “Anything you ask these two kids to do they’ve done, and they’ve just been outstanding juniors doing whatever it takes to improve service or the condition of the golf course,” said Bradley. The scholarship is in its third year, and was bequeathed by long-time Rossland-Trail Country Club member Howie Fishwick, whose estate

donated $100,000 to maintain the fund. Horan is entering his second year at U of A in Civil Engineering and is thrilled with the award. “I was hoping I would get it, so was really happy to see that happen,” said Horan. “It will definitely lighten the load in tuition, I mean this $2,500 really goes a long way in that regard.” The scholarship considers applicants demonstrating dedication and drive in pursuing their post-secondary goals. Eligible recipients must be a junior member at the Birchbank Golf Course and enrolled in a post-secondary institution. In addition, the applicant must write a short essay and answer questions relevant to merit. “We had about six applications, and they were all very deserving, but these two just did a little bit more,” said Bradley. The scholarship is unique to Birchbank and, with the generous fund intact and managed by the LeRoi Foundation, will be a legacy for many years to come.

Lindenwood won its first round against Maryville, 6-4, before falling to UMSL 5-2. Individually McKay tied for sixth in the 36-hole event, carding a 74 and 75 for a 149 total. Fellow Lindenwood golfer Jake Smock led all golfers shooting a 71 and 3-under par 68 for a total of 139.

Big Game helps out feathered friends BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

Trail’s Big Game Trophy Association (BGTA) and Bird Emergency and Kare Society (BEAKS) in Blueberry have one thing in common, they want to preserve wildlife, but for BEAKS the load is becoming unbearable. The BGTA recently donated $500 to the BEAKS program, a non-profit organization that relies on donations to survive. “They need this to stay afloat,” says BGTA president Josh Conci whose association routinely supports habitat and wildlife conservation. However, even this generous donation may not be enough to keep the facility running. With an unprecedented number of birds, BEAKS has been forced

to close on weekends due to lack of funds. “They need about $70-80,000 a year,” said director Tom Yuris. “She (director Carol Pettigrew) repairs them if they have broken wings or something, if not she’ll put them down.” The BEAKS program has helped rehabilitate over 4,000 birds since 1998, and successfully released over 70 per cent of them, compared to 20-30 per cent provincial success rate. The facility takes in all species from large predators like eagles, owls, and hawks, to berry-eating grosbeaks and cedar waxwings. The monthly cost of operation is over $4,000 in winter and $7,000 in summer, but this continues to rise with the inflated costs of the most common

Why should I increase Liability on my auto insurance?


Liability protects the registered owner of a vehicle for expenses that can be incurred from third party bodily injury and property damage lawsuits including, but not limited to, legal expenses. Whether you or another person were the driver, your vehicle’s liability will respond to pay for injuries and damages in an at-fault accident. If you only purchase $1 Million Liability and the total damages are $2 Million, you will personally be responsible for the other $1 Million. But how do claims become this large? The limit on liability is not per person injured it is a cumulative total. If one passenger in your vehicle and four passengers in another vehicle are severely injured, the cumulative injuries could easily exceed $1 Million. Liability also pays for long term disability costs and future wage loss, which can result in multi-million dollar lawsuits. Many people claim, “you can not get blood from a stone,” however, lawsuits that exceed your liability limit will become your own personal debt including debt to your estate. This means wages could be garnisheed, liens placed on assets, and refusal to issue insurance or driver’s licences in the future by ICBC. Increasing your liability offers peace of mind and is one of the most affordable coverages you can add to your vehicle. ICBC offers limits from $200,000 to $5 Million. At RHC we encourage all our clients to very seriously consider their third party liability limits, as well as the ramifications of being underinsured.

from the buzz of a text message, a peculiar way to find out he would not be part of an American team for the first time since Tiger Woods was still trying to get his PGA Tour card. U.S. captain Fred Couples used his captain’s picks Wednesday on Webb Simpson and Jordan Spieth, the 20-year-old rookie and youngest American in Presidents Cup history. “I’m disappointed,” said Furyk, who began his streak of 15 consecutive teams at the 1997 Ryder Cup. “I’m sure Dustin Johnson is disappointed and Bubba (Watson) is disappointed. Webb and Jordan, I think they’re good picks and they’re going to be excited. You’ve got to say ‘yes’ to somebody and ‘no’ to somebody.” Getting the news through a text was awkward, especially because Furyk at first thought the picks were to be announced on Tuesday, one day after the final qualifying event at the Deutsche Bank Championship. “I felt he would pick Webb because he was so close to making the team, the difference of about $6,000 in the last tournament,” Furyk said. “I thought I was the last guy up in the air.” Couples said Furyk and Steve Stricker were two players “I wanted dearly to be on the team.” Stricker was runner-up at the TPC Boston to earn one of the 10 qualifying spots. Furyk essentially was beaten out by Spieth, who started the year with no status and already has a win, a runner-up after losing in a playoff and is guaranteed a trip to the Tour Championship. Couples said he couldn’t handle a phone call, so he “took the easy way out and sent him a text.” “The whole thing was not fun,” Couples said. Furyk wound up 13th in the Presidents Cup standings, about $250,000 short of Zach Johnson at No. 10. Just his luck, this was a year like few others when it came to making two captain’s picks. Couples narrowed it down to Furyk, Dustin Johnson, Spieth and Simpson. Furyk is No. 15 in the world, a higher ranking than every player on the International team except for Masters champion Adam Scott. Dustin Johnson is at No. 22, one spot behind Watson in the ranking. “Before we started Boston, I was looking at the list of guys who could be picks - Stricker, DJ, Bubba ... wow, ” Furyk said. “The bad news is it’s always tough to pick. Everyone is going to argue what the right call is and hindsight is 20-20. He had so many good players in and around the top 12, he wasn’t going to make a bad choice.”

Bears’ Trestman, all business THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LAKE FOREST, Ill. - Marc Trestman wasn’t about to wax poetic. He makes his debut as an NFL coach when the Chicago Bears host the Cincinnati Bengals, and to say he’s come a long way is no exaggeration. After years as an assistant in the league and on the college level before heading to the CFL, Trestman finally has his opportunity. Just don’t expect him to get all sentimental when he walks into Soldier Field on Sunday. “I would think it’s going to be all business,” Trestman said. “I just can’t see it being bigger than that - focus on the football team and my job during the course of the game. I’m certainly very appreciative going out there being the head coach of the Chicago Bears on Sunday. There’s no doubt about it. But my focus is to continue to prepare this week and go out and do my job on Sunday.” The Bears hired Trestman to replace the fired Lovie Smith,

hoping he could spark their offence and get the most out of quarterback Jay Cutler. Now, they’ll see how it all comes together. They’ll also be tested right from the start against a team that made the playoffs and boasts one of the top defences in the league, with Geno Atkins poised to wreak all kinds of havoc for the Bengals. Trestman spent the past five seasons as the head coach of the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes, winning back-to-back championships, but it remains to be seen if that success will translate to Chicago. Much of that hinges on a rebuilt offensive line and his ability to get through to Cutler, something past co-ordinators Ron Turner, Mike Martz and Mike Tice were unable to do. Either way, the spotlight is on Trestman. He has a strong history working with quarterbacks, including Bernie Kosar, Steve Young and Rich Gannon. Cutler, meanwhile, has something to prove. He also has an expiring contract, and the perception in Chicago is he’s out of excuses.

Vehicle thefts on the rise in Cranbrook and Kimberley BY CAROLYN GRANT Kimberley Bulletin

Both Kimberley and Cranbrook detach-

ments are noting an increase in thefts of vehicles and thefts from vehicles in the

past few months. Cpl. Chris Newel of the Kimberley Detachment says that



between the two cities there were 13 vehicles stolen in July and 14 in August. There were also six attempts to steal vehicles in August. Additionally there were 42 thefts of items from vehicles in July, and 40 in August. Newel says that while the majority of these thefts occurred in Cranbrook, residents of both communities need to be vigilant about securing their vehicles and making sure valuables are removed. And there have been thefts in Kimberley as well, such as a truck taken

in Townsite earlier this month which resulted in multiple charges to the driver. Kimberley RCMP are also following up on the theft of a golf cart. The golf cart stolen from Bootleg Gap Golf Course on Saturday August 24, was located August 27 in the bush approximately 3.5 km up St. Mary’s Lake Road.  There was damage to the front end, likely a result of suspects attempting to drive it off road, Newel says. Police often remind residents that the theft

of vehicles are often a crime of opportunity. If your vehicle is left unlocked, if there are valuable items visible, it increases the risk of theft. And small town or not, leaving your keys in the vehicle is an invitation, Newel says. “People just leave their keys in the ignition, while going in for a coffee and donut or warming up their car in the morning.  Approximately 20 per cent of all stolen cars have keys in them. Newel offers some tips from the Insurance Bureau of Canada:

It’s important to remember that a professional thief can steal your car in about 30 seconds. But there are a few simple precautions that you can take to help make the thief’s target a little harder to reach: Never leave your vehicle running unattended Park in well-lit areas. Always roll up your car windows, lock the doors, pocket and protect your keys. Never leave valuables or packages in full view. Put them in the trunk.


Hot springs footbridge open to public BY CLAIRE PARADIS Arrow Lakes News

The Trail Times is giving away FREE wood pallets!

Get creative! Benches, tables, planters! Pick up at 1163 Cedar Ave, Trail 8:30am-3pm

The new Nakusp Hot Springs footbridge was opened with fanfare in mid-August. The fêted bridge is the latest effort by the Village to make the municipally-owned hot springs a viable venture, Nakusp Mayor Karen Hamling told the small crowd gathered for speeches.

“Many people put a lot of time and effort into making this project a reality,” she said. The project cost $425,000 and funding came in large part thanks to the Nakusp and Area Community Trails Society’s trails project which helped secure a Community Recreation grant  for $340,000. Both the Columbia Basin Trust

and the Village of Nakusp contributed $42,500. Nakusp’s own Dave Madden Timberworks supplied the timber and timber work that gives the bridge its unique beauty. Laurie Page, representing the CBT, remarked that the bridge was the kind of collaborative project that epitomized what the Trust stands for.

Everyone wants their community to be welcoming, but are we always as good at it as we think?

Communities Help

In light of trends in the labour markets a concerning gap has been identified. There simply aren’t going to be enough Canadians entering the workforce over the next twenty years to meet shortfalls caused by retirement and economic growth. To help meet the need British Columbia is actively encouraging people to relocate to the province.

Parents have instinctive impulse to protect Mailbox

makes me furious. In the past two years, I’ve avoided seeing or speaking to my parents. Recently, Mom asked me to see my grandmother. Against my better judgment, I went with her, and out of the blue, she did that thing again, putting her arm across my chest when she stopped suddenly. I told her to pull over. She said, “I’m sorry, but I get nervous.” I said, “Then I don’t think I can trust you to drive” and walked home. I don’t know anyone else who does this. It’s not normal. I suspect my mother wants to feel like the boss of the

is emotional cheating and he should stop or we’d be finished. He didn’t change, and it escalated to ogling strangers on elevators and women at parties. It was creepy. I was humiliated and embarrassed. After I broke up with him, I found out that he made sexually inappropriate remarks to some very young girls, saying he wanted to see them naked. I suggested therapy. He said all men do this and told me to relax. A friend of mine says he is a sexual predator and probably a sex addict. He always reads your column. Maybe you can shed some light. Is it a mental deficit or emotional cheating? -- Wondering in Canada Dear Canada: Both. If this inappropriate behavior began within the past few years, it could be an indication of early dementia. Suggest he see his doctor. However, if he has always been like this,

it is not only emotional cheating, but also worrisome. When you say “very young girls,” how young? If you believe he is preying on underage girls, please report him to the authorities. Dear Annie: “Leave Us Alone” should tell her relatives they don’t

want to start a family they can’t fully support. They should say they have set up two funds -- one to pay off their college loans and one for future children. When their loans are paid off and the one for future children is completely funded,

they will consider trying. Then ask the nosy family member how much they are willing to contribute. -- Some Humor in Dallas Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar.

situation. What do you say? -- N.Y. Dear N.Y.: Every parent we know does this. You interpret it as controlling and manipulative, but it is done out of an instinctive impulse to protect someone they love. Try to recognize that your feelings could indicate a skewed perspective about Mom’s motives and may be coloring your entire relationship. The two of you don’t seem to communicate in the same language. Please explore this with a professional counselor and work on ways to relate in a healthier and more productive manner. And ask your mother to go, too. We suspect she could benefit, as well.

Dear Annie: I am a 35-year-old man. Years ago, my mother developed a bad habit. Whenever I was in the passenger side of the car, if she stopped short, she would put her arm against my chest to prevent me from going through the windshield. This infuriated me. I’m already wearing a seatbelt, and there is no way a woman her size could protect me. Every time she did this, I would yell, “Keep your hands on the wheel!” Eventually, she stopped. My mother has always looked for ways to control me. She complains about every problem under the sun, and when I offer a workable solution, she says, “Well, some people can’t afford to do those things,” and we end up arguing. Her arguments are always stupid, and she’ll flip sides to make me look like the aggressor. It’s very manipulative and
