Council unable to opt village out of smart meter program BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

Sometimes there’s power in numbers but not for FortisBC customers in the Village of Montrose. Resident Mario Como approached council last week with an impassioned plea to Mayor Joe Danchuk to unite the village to opt out of the utility company’s 2014 smart meter program. “We had the vision of a moratorium in Montrose,” said Como, delegated to speak on behalf of “concerned citizens of Montrose.” “What I would like to see is opting out for all of our community and send a clear message to Fortis.” Como cited health concerns related to the radio frequency technology used to “read” the wireless meters, and infrastructure expenses FortisBC electrical customers will inevitably be on the hook to pay. “The village has the responsibility to resist high pressure tactics by providing sanctuary against the harmful effects of radiation and protecting human rights,” said Como, adding, “only as a whole community are we able to avoid ill health effects, security issues, expenses of wireless metering and misinformation by FortisBC.” In August, FortisBC announced its approval from the B.C. Utilities Commission (BCUC) for the company to proceed with its Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project next year. See COST, Page 3

Crisis line provides valuable link for support BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

The phone rings and there is a voice on the other end. But it’s not your mom, sister or best friend, it’s an anonymous person ready to listen. That is the beauty of the West Kootenay Boundary Regional Crisis Line (1-888353-2273). Since 1987, the 24-hour support line has helped those who feel like they’re in a crisis, whether it’s struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction or thoughts of suicide.

From the top and clockwise; Not even a substantial downpour was enough to discourage competitors from taking part in the Golden City Days Out House Race. The Rossland Firefighters were making a good show of the race until a faulty wheel put them behind the Rossland Trail Roller Girls entry. Perennial local R&B combo No Excuse, featuring Karli Harrison performed their final gig (for now) in Rossland as their lead singer announces she is moving to Montreal to pursue her music career. Neither the kids or the children seemed very concerned with the wet weather as the petting zoo proved to be a highly popular attraction for the Rossland Fall Fair portion of Golden City Days. Young skateboarders and scooter riders only had a time for a brief instruction demo before the KSS Miner Threat Jam had to be cancelled due to rain.

lives,” said Miller. “I think that if you can be there at a critical moment to be available to people, to be willing to listen to them talk about suicide because a lot of the time there’s a lot of stigma and silence that surrounds suicide.” The crisis line and other organizations pushing for the same mandate will be breaking that silence. The community is invited to attend the local World Suicide Prevention Day event today at noon that kicks off with a barbecue hosted by Castlegar Hospice, prior to the symbolic ceremony at 12:30 p.m. at Kinsmen Park in Castlegar. “The idea is that the kite is a person we’ve lost to suicide or is struggling with suicide and the string is our connection with them,” explained Miller. “We have a number of ribbons that people have written messages of remembrance or of hope or even support for people who are still struggling with suicide.” The campaign is intended to give families and employees the tools they need to thrive and be safer by strengthening connections, promoting conversations about mental wellness and knowing how we can help protect and care for each other during times of crisis. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people 15 to 34 years old, according to the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention. Each year suicide claims the lives of more than 3,500 people in Canada. According to the 2010 Coroner’s Report, B.C. lost an average of 495 people a year due to suicide from 2001-2010. Those interested in becoming a crisis line volunteer, can call 3640274.

FROM PAGE 1 The crisis line operates with some paid staff and a growing number of volunteers, who are trained on listening and educated on resources available. “The volunteers often bring a really valuable resource to a lot of this because they really care,” said Miller. “They’re there because they care and that often can be the most powerful thing for a person who’s reaching out is to hear that there is someone on the other side who’s willing to listen to them, someone who has the time and is passionate about the work they do.” The line is completely confidential and can be reached at any time of day toll-free. The staff focuses on listening, only intervening in an emergency. “We really try to listen without judgement and not a lot of advice and that’s really hard to come by sometimes,” said Miller. “ It’s nice for people who really feel that it’s a safe place and they can just talk and vent and be heard without someone telling them what to do.” The importance of making resources easy to access for those in need has been a goal for the regional line, which is evident with its involvement in the Interior Crisis Line Network, a fairly new network of five crisis lines now working together to better serve the entire Interior Health Region. Most local callers will still talk with a local worker, but if the line is already busy, calls will be routed to another crisis line, which will have staff with all the training and information necessary to properly serve the caller. “I really believe that we can save

Times subscriber wins iPad

By Times Staff The Trail Times and Rita Bonacci both came away as winners in the “Trail Times Win an iPad” contest. The Times held a contest for subscribers giving away a weekly prize of a $20 gift certificate to Lil T's Cafe and a grand prize of an iPad. The goal was to encourage our print subscribers to visit and log on to our website at It paid dividends for Bonacci who decided to give it a try. She found our solution to a July question online and entered the contest. “That was the first time I logged in,” she admitted. A Trail native, Bonacci has been a subscrib-

er to the Trail Times for over 20 years and remembers the paper always being around her family's table when growing up. Now she enjoys visiting the website for some of the added features it provides. “I go back often now. I like seeing pictures that didn't appear in the paper.” As for the iPad, despite having two children in college, she's keeping this handy unit for herself. Of note to the many who faithfully entered our contest on a weekly basis, the final winner of the Lil T's $20 gift certificate was Elaine Rushton. Thank to you to all who entered and keep watching the Trail Times for more contests in the near future.

Cost of smart meters ‘radio-off’ option revealed

FROM PAGE 1 At that time, the company confirmed that customers could choose to opt out of a new meter and its wireless transmissions, but the consumer would have to pay the “incremental” costs, not yet determined, related to the radio-off option. Kevin Chartres, Montrose chief administrative officer, explained that council cannot make a uni-lateral decision to opt out the village’s 500 residences. “In regards to Mr Como’s request, the village has no

authority to opt anyone out,” he said, adding, “other than the village’s own services.” Next, Chartres presented council with the dollar amount a FortisBC customer will have to pay with a radio-off option. “FortisBC sent the Utilities Commission a proposal Friday (Aug. 30),” said Chartres. “Right now, they are proposing a charge of $110 bi-monthly for people who chose to opt out.” The BCUC will go through a public process to review the fees before anything is finalized, he added.

“I don’t think we should make a decision or should we, for every individual,” said Mayor Danchuk. “But we do thank Mr Como and we will wait for more information to come.” The $51 million AMI project affects 130,000 FortisBC electrical customers, in homes and businesses stretching from Princeton in the west, through the Okanagan and West Kootenay, to Creston in the east. “Advanced meters will pay for themselves by nearly eliminating the expense of manual meter

“This is no different that the asbestos, PCBs or tobacco industry issues. The repercussions may not be now, but ten to 15 years down the road, it will be a different story.” Advanced meters, which are similar in appearance to the traditional model, will be installed starting next year with an expected completion date by the end of 2015. According to FortisBC, smart meters will also prevent electricity theft and provide customers with more information and fewer bill estimates.

reading,” Neil Pobran, corporate communications manager, told the Times last month. In addition to job losses, controversy swirls around the health hazards smart meters may present, although the company maintains that advanced meters were approved after expert health witnesses presented extensive evidence to the BCUC during a public regulatory process. “People aren’t aware of the situation unless its hits them right between the eyes,” said Como.

Provincial VErnon

Petition targets amalgamation vote By Richard Rolke Vernon Morning Star

There’s pressure to place Greater Vernon’s future in the hands of residents. Until October 31, a petition will be circulated asking local and provincial authorities to develop a plan to combine Vernon, Coldstream and Areas B and C into a single entity to provide a more efficient use of taxes. “We want the citizens of Greater Vernon to say if we are one community or not,” said Bruce Shepherd, president of the Society for the Future Governance of Greater Vernon. The goal is to have a referendum on the ballot in each jurisdiction during the 2014 civic elections in regards to governance. “If they (voters) say no, at least they said it,” said Peter

Moore, society director, adding that those opposed to amalgamation should be interested in a referendum proceeding. “It would be wise for them to ask to have the question on the ballot so they can vote no once and for all.” The society was first formed in 2005 with a primary focus on the entire North Okanagan, but nothing materialized and efforts ceased. However, earlier this year, a group of eight to 10 people from all four Greater Vernon jurisdictions decided to resurrect the group and narrow the scope to just Greater Vernon. “Our members are concerned about the duplication of services and inefficiencies,” said Moore of two municipal councils and two

electoral area directors as well as parallel bureaucracies for 58,000 people. As an example, the society points to water and parks, recreation and culture being handled by the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee but any decisions must then go before the Regional District of North Okanagan board. In some cases, processes must also be ratified by Vernon and Coldstream councils. “There’s too much time spent going from jurisdiction to jurisdiction and committee to committee,” said Shepherd. “The speed of decisionmaking has slowed down and the infighting has increased,” added Moore. Moore says that Coldstream’s population grew 10 per cent between 2000 and 2010 but per cap-

ita spending, adjusted for inflation, climbed 32 per cent, while in Vernon, the population increased 13 per cent and spending per capita went up 53 per cent. “Spending is far outstripping the ability to pay so where will the dollars come from? Either taxpayers dig ever deeper or services will be cut. To avoid this, we must find cost savings in how we operate municipal government.” As part of a recent city core review, consultant KPMG indicated amalgamation would generate efficiencies and reduce costs. Vernon council decided not to take action on that recommendation. There have been previous attempts to move towards amalgamation but Moore is confident this new process will move ahead positively.

Officers marvel at man who fought cougar with spear THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - A British Columbia conservation officer is marvelling at a man’s bravery for attacking a cougar with nothing but a spear as the cat was mauling his partner. “I’m pretty sure that this is the first time in B.C., if not Canada and maybe even North America, where someone has stopped an attack by a cougar with a spear and killed it with a spear,” said conservation officer Sgt. Ben York in an interview Monday. The 60-year-old woman was mauled by the animal late Sunday

afternoon while she was gardening outside her home on Flores Island in Clayoquot Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. York said her common-law partner was nearby, heard the woman’s screams and quickly came to her

aid. “That’s a significant amount of bravery that he showed,” York said. “I understand why he did it, but it still takes a lot of bravery to do what he did and I’m glad he was there to rescue her.” The cougar ran off into the bush and the man called for help. York said a coast guard ship was used to ferry the woman from the island to nearby Tofino and she was then airlifted to hospital in Victoria. “It’s our understanding that she has undergone surgery and is in post-operative care.

stable condition and is expected to recover.” Conservation officers and a cougar hunter with a specially-trained tracking dog landed on the island Monday and found the body of the cougar about 20 metres from the attack site. He said the man stabbed it several times with the spear and that was the likely cause of death, but a necropsy will also be preformed on the animal to determine what may have caused the animal to jump on the woman. York said they may never know why the cougar attacked because sometimes cougars look at people as if they’re prey. He said the couple had had some encoun-

ters in the last few months with a cougar that had been acting aggressively towards them. He believes it was the same animal that attacked the woman Sunday. York said it appears likely the man tried to prepare himself for any kind of event and kept the spear handy. “It may be that he just looked around for what he had available and made it ready just in case, and as it turned out it was a good idea.” York said it was obvious the man wasn’t going to let the cougar have the woman without a fight. “This was his partner of some years, so there’s no way he was going to let that cougar have it’s way.”

Class size concerns THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - The head of the B.C. Teachers Federation says the provincial government didn’t comply with a court order and students in B.C. are still being taught in overcrowded classrooms without the help of specialized teachers. In 2011, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled the government violated teachers’ bargaining rights in legislation that stripped them of their constitutional right to bargain for issues such as class size and class composition. Justice Susan Griffin gave the province a year to address her decision, but BCTF President Jim Iker says the government failed to repeal or amend the legislation, forcing students to learn in crowded conditions without access to specialist teachers. New legislation the government brought in that included $200 million in added funding has been rejected by the union. The provincial government has pegged the cost of reinstating the provisions of the contract at $6 billion, and while Iker insists that figure is unrealistic, he refused to provide an estimate of costs to taxpayers. Teachers have been without a contract since June, and negotiations are expected to begin in October.



DNA rules out Dunahee THE CANADIAN PRESS VICTORIA - DNA test results show that a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to a composite drawing of Michael Dunahee is not the same person who vanished over 20 years ago. Victoria Police say they have received the DNA results from a sample willingly given by the man in the Vancouver area who had been identified through a tip. News of the man, who has not been identified, came in July, but police said the DNA testing was routine and that they’d done similar samples before as officers continue to try to solve the long-running mystery. Police say they have contacted the Dunahee family and the man to tell them of the results and say Dunahee family members are requesting privacy. Dunahee vanished in 1991 from a Victoria school playground while his mom was playing rugby in the field nearby.

New mayor for Penticton By Steve Kidd

Penticton Western News

While the by election is over and the results are in, it will still be more than a week before Penticton’s city council is up to full strength again. Garry Litke is returning to council as mayor with 2,779 votes while Katie Robinson, with 1,500 votes, will be taking the councillor position vacated by Litke in July, when he resigned to run in the by-election. These are preliminary results – Litke and Robinson cannot take the oath of office until nine days after voting. “Tentative arrangements have been made to swear in the mayor-elect and councillor-elect on Sept. 16 in Vancouver. These accommodations have been made to ensure Penticton is fully represented at the Union of B.C. Municipalities annual convention,” said Dana Schmidt, chief election officer. The UBCM runs from Sept. 16 to 20.

Crews searching for runaway rubber ducks

THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG - City crews in Winnipeg are continuing to capture thousands of rubber ducks that slipped past a containment boom during a weekend fundraising race. The Assiniboine Park Conservancy says over 13,000 rubber ducks were dropped from a crane into the Assiniboine River on Saturday for The Great Manitoba Duck Race. The race was meant to raise money for the conservancy as well as the Assiniboine Park Zoo. But at the end of the race, the conservancy says the oil booms used to capture the ducks failed. “The current was extremely strong and there was high winds. Because of that, some of the ducks made it over the barrier,” said Laura Curtis, a spokeswoman for the conservancy. “I would say over half made it over the barrier.” Most of the ducks had been recovered by Sunday afternoon but the conservancy says it is planning to keep looking this week. The ducks are harder and heavier than bath toys. Curtis said they’re special racing ducks that were rented from a U.S. company, so the conservancy is eager to get as many back as possible.

EI premium freeze will boost jobs: minister THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA Employers and workers will get a small break over the next three years as the Conservative government freezes employment insurance premiums at the current level. Planned rate increases are no longer necessary because the separate account through which the government manages the fund is looking healthier than it did a few years ago, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said Monday. The account, which ran a deficit following the economic downturn, is on track to return to balance faster than expected. “More people are working, so more people are paying into the operating account of the employment insurance plan and fewer people are claiming,” Flaherty said

at an event south of Ottawa. F i n a n c e Department staff estimated the freeze will save businesses and workers $660 million next year, something Flaherty says will give employers the flexibility to hire more staff. The Conservatives promised that after 2017 the premium will be set every year and calibrated so the fund will have a seven-year break-even rate, which Finance officials say means more stability and affordable rates. The premium rate at the 2013 level is $1.88 for every $100 of insurable earnings. The Canadian Federation of Independent Business says it’s happy with the announcement, calling it “fantastic news” for the country’s entrepreneurs. “This move will keep hundreds of millions of dollars in the

pockets of employers and employees, which can only be a positive for the Canadian economy,” said Dan Kelly, president of the business lobby. But Erin Weir, an economist with the United Steelworkers, was skeptical, noting that when Flaherty announced the initial policy in September 2010, the number of unemployed stood at 1.5 million. “Since then, that figure has edged down to 1.4 million, hardly a breathtaking reduction in unemployment,” he said. The government has been accused of making it harder to get EI. Weir says that is one of the unspoken truths of the government’s explanation for the healthier account balance. “The falling number of EI recipients reflects not only the slight reduction in

unemployment but also government policy changes that make benefits less accessible,” he said. “Freezing premiums effectively locks in those benefit cuts.” Jinny Sims, the NDP’s critic for employment and social development, says she’s doubtful companies will plow the savings back into job creation. “This minister lives in another universe,” she said Monday. “To say the unemployed are going to benefit from this is a stretch for me. It is difficult to see how this is actually going to benefit them.” Flaherty says the freeze will have no impact on his drive to balance the federal budget because EI is handled from a separate account. “We are on track

and we anticipate we’ll be able to balance the budget in 2015 without difficulty,” Flaherty said. The Harper government has resisted outlining how and where it intends to cut, even fighting a court challenge brought by the parliamentary budget officer. Last spring, the Federal Court dismissed - on a technicality - a request to consider whether the watchdog has a legal right to demand the government turn over information on its cost-cutting program. Most of the details of program cuts and federal workforce reductions have emerged after the fact. Flaherty said Monday that the next budget, expected in the spring, will give the public a clearer idea of where the government is going.

Mayor offered several chances to comment, says newspaper

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Canada’s two largest newspapers defended their reporting of drug allegations against Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and his councillor brother Monday, saying they took every step possible to ensure the stories were accurate and fair. The Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail were called before the Ontario Press Council after dozens of readers complained about their coverage of the Fords in two specific stories published in May. The council is looking into a Star story on an alleged video of the mayor smoking what appears to be crack cocaine, as well as a Globe story on his brother Doug’s alleged drug dealings. It is weighing whether the two newspapers ”engaged in irresponsible, unethical investigative reporting.” In two separate hearings Monday, each outlet argued it went to extraordinary lengths to verify the information obtained through anonymous sources, and repeatedly sought out the Fords to hear their side of

the story. Star reporters made at least 14 attempts to reach the mayor the night before the story was published, the Star’s editor-in-chief told the three-member panel. They made phone calls, sent text messages and emails and even travelled to the mayor’s west-end home and that of his brother in an effort to get a response, Michael Cooke said. Letters detailing the allegations also were left at both homes that night, the paper said. Cooke said Ford - who did not attend Monday’s hearing - has yet to substantively address the allegations and has instead spent recent months “ducking and dodging” questions on the issue. “Mayor Ford knows whether he smoked crack in that video or not,” and still owes Toronto “a full answer,” he told the panel. The mayor has said he does not smoke crack cocaine and that the video does not exist. Darylle Donley, whose complaint against the Star was chosen to represent sev-

eral similar ones, attended the hearing but did not speak. In an email to the council released to the media, she accused the paper of letting its distaste for the mayor’s policies taint its coverage. She said the alleged video could easily be a fake, and the Star should have bought the footage it claims was being shopped around by drug dealers in order to back up the May 16 report. Her accusations echo the Fords’ own arguments that they are being unfairly targeted by the media, particularly the Star. The mayor has publicly refused to speak to Star reporters. Kevin Donovan, one of the main reporters on the case, told the hearing that any doubts he had about the alleged video’s authenticity vanished the minute he watched it. And while the paper debated buying the clip, it feared the money would go toward guns or other nefarious ends, he said. The complaint against the Globe focused on an article published on May 25 that alleged that Doug Ford had,

in his youth, been a drug dealer in west-end Toronto. He has been dismissive of the allegations. The main complainant, Connie Harrison, particularly took issue with the paper’s use of anonymous sources, which she said undermines the public’s trust. “We don’t know who to believe at this point,” she told the panel. Editor-in-chief John Stackhouse said the Globe had no choice but to rely on unnamed sources, since they were the only ones who could confirm the information. The only other option would have been not to publish at all, but given the serious nature of the allegations - and Doug Ford’s political influence - that would have been “irresponsible,” Stackhouse said. Reporters took great pains to test each source’s credibility, returning for several interviews during the 18-month investigation, he said. Both Fords were approached “numerous” times but declined to be interviewed, he added.

Curing a community cash crunch


ocal politicians from across B.C. are in Vancouver Sept. 16 to 20 to take part in the annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. There will be trivia reported as news, such as the cost of hotels. Suggestions to license mobility scooters or lower speed limits to 40 km/h, dreamed up in Vancouver Island retirement locales, will be rejected by delegates from the rest of the province. Serious discussion will revolve around a report by a UBCM executive committee to reshape the financial relationship between the province and local governments. If this proposal gets the support it deserves, Premier Christy Clark’s government will be asked to undo a couple of decades of political meddling in that relationship. One problem for local governments is that they depend on property tax, a

stable source of revenue but one that has no relationship to the property owner’s ability to pay. It tends to load costs onto lower-income groups such as seniors and renters. Economic growth results mainly in increased corporate and personal income tax revenues as well as sales taxes, which aren’t shared with local governments. One key proposal is to return to a system of revenue sharing grants introduced by the Social Credit government in the 1980s. They were funded by one point each from personal and corporate income tax and six per cent of sales, fuel and resource tax revenues, thus increasing in years when provincial revenues were strong. The UBCM proposal is to put a share of provincial revenues into an infrastructure bank, to be distributed by the organization on a more stable basis. Saanich Mayor Frank



Leonard, one of the authors of the report, uses a basketball analogy to describe the current system of federal-provincial grants for road and bridge projects. It’s a “jump ball,” where communities have to apply to a fund when it’s offered and then see who gets it. Even if a community wins the jump ball, they may find themselves with costs inflated by a hot construction market and an arbitrary deadline to get the job done. Then there are new regulations imposed by senior governments. The

most dramatic example these days is a 2020 federal deadline for Greater Victoria to construct landbased sewage treatment. Even with federal and provincial cost sharing, this project is going to land heavily on property tax bills, including those of pensioners and poor renters who will have it passed on to them. Leonard points to another arbitrary system, provincial facilities that pay grants in lieu of property taxes. Saanich is home to the University of Victoria, a community of 25,000 people that needs water and sewer service, as well as police and fire protection. Saanich gets an annual grant in lieu of property taxes of $120,000 for UVic, enough to cover wages and benefits for one cop and maybe some gas money. Cariboo Regional District chair Al Richmond, co-chair of the UBCM committee, is concerned about new

water and flood protection legislation the province is preparing to impose. His district and others like it have thousands of kilometres of riverfront, with relatively few property owners. Interior communities also want BC Hydro to pay something for power lines, as is now being done with some aboriginal territories. Local politicians will be expecting a sympathetic ear from the new version of the B.C. Liberal government. Former Quesnel councillor Coralee Oakes is the new community, sport and cultural development minister, with direct responsibility for local government issues. And one of the original members of this UBCM committee was former Langley City mayor Peter Fassbender, who is now minister of education.

Trail Times Tuesday, September 10, 2013 A9

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Two sides to Salmo’s situation Reading this article (Threats escalate in village, Trail Times Sept. 3) would lead a reader to suspect Salmo mayor and council are the unfortunate blameless victims of a surly, violent, ungrateful community. Your reporter could have put balance in that  article by talking to some of the very citizens accused of such behavior.  On the one occasion Mayor Henderson called police to attend Council, her own Councilors were the only ones to misbehave in a whole crowded room. In fact, the police never did attend that meeting, having useful duties elsewhere. 

The statement that the "hostility" started with the council's garbage contract fiasco is also wrong. That was just the last straw  from years of ongoing incidents of mismanagement, ineffective efforts, inefficient procedures, expensive poor decisions, and self-centered agendas.  I have been observing this mayor and council regularly for five years, and have sad examples of all of the above.  Salmo citizens are frustrated and angry at the lack of positive response from the very people who are supposed to be looking after our best interests. 

Complaints are made by citizens at "public time" because the "other procedures in place" referred to by Mayor Henderson (write a letter, make a council presentation, phone, ) are not working properly at all and have not for years.  I moved to Salmo because it is a small community full of decent people.  People who have unfortunately let democratic complacency install a mayor and council who are not representative of the spirit or wishes of  a truly good-hearted community.  Dan Danforth Salmo

Writer manipulates facts in CUPE column Mr. Fletcher seems to take a fairly strong opinion against the CUPE workers (Back to school and labour disputes, Trail Times, Sept. 6). Mr. Fletcher states that CUPE workers have not had a raise in four years this much is true. He then makes readers believe a raise is possible. The thing he doesn't point out is a pay increase can only happen if the school board cuts somewhere else. In other words kids programs must cut or staff hours must be cut, or someone must be laid off not a very good way to get a pay increase. Mr. Fletcher then goes on to state that

these workers should not have a pensions or any other benefits. He feels they should have the same benefits as self employed people, like it is a bad thing for a worker to have a pension. By the way CUPE staff pay approximately 10 per cent of their earnings into a plan to finance these benefits. He also doesn't mention that it's cheaper for the taxpayer if people have a pension because in Canada the government will take care of you if you have no money. My favourite is how Mr. Fletcher cherry picks only two districts out of 60 to find benefits he feels are excessive, then implies all

CUPE staff in all districts get these same benefits. Like his overtime example. I work in the private sector and I get overtime when needed. Mr. Fletcher talks about a four-hour callout he implies happens very often, I would like to know when a bus driver or a custodian gets called out and what emergency would get them called out. Also what makes him so sure it only takes one hour to do the work. Mr. Fletcher states CUPE staff are being paid out for 150 sick days upon retirement, fact is most districts pay out less than half as a percentage. So again he is less than honest.

Also I don't know of any district that gives six weeks vacation after 20 years, it's 24 years or more and six weeks is the max. Mr Fletcher ends his tirade by stating he does not mean to devalue the CUPE staff. I find that hard to swallow. When I read the article I felt he was slamming CUPE very hard. Mr. Fletcher's article is little better than 1930's yellow journalism. He manipulates facts and omits other facts to make his position seem stronger. He is a poor excuse for a reporter.

A delegation presented their concerns to the Regional District of East Kootenay last week about rave parties they say are occurring at Koocanusa. District of Elkford Director Dean McKerracher said the local government body doesn’t have authority to do much about the situation, but would like to do something. “People are continually asking us to do something, but our hands are tied,” he said. “We’ve written a letter to our MLA and to our MP.”

He said the issue is being bounced around between different parties. He said the parties happen on a continual basis each weekend of the summer there are large parties and the issue has no easy fix. “It’s a continual problem and police force of course don’t have enough members to deal with the lake itself,” McKerracher said. The Elk Valley RCMP division looks after the lake on the Baynes Lake side, while the Cranbrook division looks after this side. McKerracher said the Elk Valley detachment has a limited number of staff. “If they hear of something going on then they’ll staff up on

weekend,” he said, adding the extra enforcement for the parties ends up costing taxpayers more money and makes sticking to a budget more difficult for local government. Over in the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary the district payed for a temporary summer police presence on Christina Lake, which consisted of an officer and a boat. The delegation asked whether something like that could be pursued for Koocanusa. “We could probably supply one officer, but what would one officer is going to do, I’m not sure,” McKerracher said, as the parties sometimes get upwards of 2,000 people.

Smoke Eaters make statement at BCHL Showcase By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

It was a good bus ride home for the Trail Smoke Eaters as they picked up three of four points at the BauerBCHL Showcase on the weekend at Prospera Place in Chilliwack. All 16 teams played two games over three days to kick off the 52nd season of BCHL hockey. After suffering a tough 4-3 overtime loss against the Langley Rivermen Friday, the Smokies rebounded with a decisive 6-2 win over Cowichan Valley Capitals on Sunday, avenging an 8-1 loss to the Capitals at the same Showcase a year ago. “We played well the first game, there were some calls against us at wrong times in the game, and they end up scoring in overtime,” said head coach and GM Bill Birks. “But I was pleased with our game and after being on the bus all day and playing in front of all

the scouts, I was real happy with the one point.” The first match was a see-saw battle with the Smokies trailing 3-2 in the waning minutes of the third, but Jake Kauppila tied it on the power play after a nice setup from Jesse Knowler.

“I think we have four pretty deep lines, there’s no real all stars, we’ve got to score by committee.” Bill birks

However, a late Smokie penalty would open the door for Langley captain Mitch MacLain who fired a shot past Smokies’ goalie Adam Todd 22 seconds into the overtime period. Knowler started the scoring at 6:23 of the first period with assists going to Kauppila and Bryce Knapp. The

Rivermen replied in the second, scoring twice and taking the lead into the third, but Smokie captain Adam Wheeldon answered when he banged in a Scott Davidson rebound to tie it at 2-2. However, Brendan Kearney would score his second of the night at 11:09 to put Langley up 3-2 before Kaupilla tied it, forcing overtime. Langley outshot Trail 29-25, with Trail going 1-for-2 on the power play, and 5-for-6 on the PK. In the second match against Cowichan on Sunday, newly acquired forward and former Capital, Travis Stephens, netted the winner 10 seconds into the second period to make it 3-1 Trail, while Bryce Knapp and Braden Lamont each scored twice and Dustin Nikkel got his first win as a Smokie, stopping 36 of 38 shots for the victory. “Both goalies, Todd played really well on Friday, and Nikkel was

Trail Smoke Eaters forward Bryce Knapp scored twice, including this deflection past the Cowichan Capitals goalie as the Smokies went on to rout the Caps 6-2 at the Bauer-BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack on Sunday. really good Sunday,” said Birks. “We’ve got two really good goalies in here and it gives our guys some confidence that’s for sure.” Cowichan struck 19 seconds into the first

period, but the Smoke Eaters would dominate the rest of the way counting six straight before Cowichan ended the scoring at the 11:30 mark of the third. Lamont netted

the first two markers for the Smokies before Stephens, who was acquired from Coquitlam last week, made it 3-1. Knapp then popped in his pair before the period was

out, and the Trail tandem of Jake Lucchini and Riley Brandt set up Valik Chichkin on the power play to make it 6-1 Smokies 4:54 into the third. See VEES, Page 12


Young Beaver Valley Nitehawk team grounded by Leafs By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks had their second last look at some young players as they succumbed to the Nelson Leafs 3-0 in KIJHL exhibition play at the Beaver Valley Arena on Sunday. In an effort to identify the two 16-yearold players the Nitehawks will sign for the upcoming season, the team dressed a raft of rookies for its final home tilt against the Leafs. With just three veterans in the lineup, the rookie laden squad fared well against a Nelson team that will likely be

their stiffest competition once the season gets underway on Friday. “We put a lot of young guys in that made a push for spots on the team,” said assistant coach Jeremy Cominotto. “We thought it would be a good idea to give them a chance and rest our veterans a little bit and at the same time Nelson was putting in a good line up so we thought we’d see what these guys can do.” Nelson scored a goal in each period to pace the Leafs to the 3-0 victory, getting goals from Bryce Nielson, Robson Cramer, and Colton St. John. The Nitehawks had

their chances hitting three posts, and generating numerous opportunities including a breakaway by Ryan Edwards whose quick snapshot beat goalie Adam Maida and appeared to go in and out, but was called off by the referee. A number of local players are vying for one of the two 16-year-old spots on the team, including Sam Swanson, Mitch Titus, Kyle Hope, Ryan Neil, Jarod Kinakin, and Jeremy Lucchini. “We are pretty impressed with the young core that we have, if not this year then for years to come,” said Cominotto. “Right

now they’ve all played well, and done things that can put them in the line up and to play every day, but at this time we’re still unsure of any glaring frontrunner.” The Nitehawks exhibition season has seen both good and bad results beginning with a 6-1 victory over the Creston ThunderCats last Sunday, followed by an 8-2 loss at the hands of Nelson Tuesday. However, after a 6-4 setback to Creston the next night, the Hawks bounced back with a pair of wins over Castlegar Friday, 4-2, and Saturday, 5-1. See HAWKS Page 12

FROM PAGE 11 The solid defensive effort and ample offensive output is a strong indication that the Smoke Eaters will indeed compete for a playoff position in what will be a fiercely competitive Interior division race. “I think we have four pretty deep lines, there’s no real all stars,

you know we got to score by committee,” added Birks. “We got goals from our third, second, first line, a couple defenceman, it was an all-around effort.” Penticton went 2-0 with wins over Victoria Grizzlies 2-1, and Alberni Valley Bulldogs, 3-2, while Vernon defeated Surrey

Eagles 7-3 with Trail native’s Craig Martin and Dallas Calvin each getting a goal and an assist. The Vipers tied the Chilliwack Chiefs 1-1 and former Smokie goalie Lyndon Stanwood was named first star for a 42 save performance for the Chiefs while Kurt Black, who played for the Beaver Valley Nitehawks last season, netted their lone goal. Merritt won once, Salmon Arm lost both games, but picked up a point in a 5-4 OT loss to Victoria, and West Kelowna dropped both its matches. “There’s no week teams in the league at all,” said Birks. “I don’t

think any one team is going to run away with it, but there won’t be any teams left in the dust either.” Trail will have a tough test in it’s first two home  games against the Penticton Vees on Friday and Saturday  at the Cominco Arena at 7:30 p.m. “It’s actually good to play Pen twice this weekend. We are going to watch some video and focus on what Penticton does and practice that all week and hopefully we’ll get a good crowd in here on Friday night.” Trail hosts Merritt on Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Cominco Arena.

Kiprusoff retires a Flame THE CANADIAN PRESS CALGARY - After a summer of reflection, Miikka Kiprusoff decided to stick with his original plan. The Calgary Flames goaltender announced his retirement from the NHL on Monday, a move that was expected by both the team and many of its fans. The 36-year-old spent the last nine seasons with the Flames, including the club’s memorable run to the 2004 Stanley Cup final. Kiprusoff said he made the decision at the end of last season, but took the summer to be “100 per cent

sure.” “It’s an important decision for me personally, my family, the Flames organization and fans,” Kiprusoff said in a release. “I’ve been very lucky to have spent 10 years of my career in Calgary. There is no better place to live and play.” A native of Turku, Finland, Kiprusoff holds team records for wins (305), games played (576) and shutouts (41). With the Flames well out of the playoff picture, the team discussed dealing the veteran netminder at last season’s trade deadline. Although he

Hawks in hot pursuit of Cyclone FROM PAGE 11 While the team has 10 returning veterans, it remains to be seen whether they can replace key offensive players like Dallas Calvin, Dan Holland, Connor Brown-Maloski and Kurt Black. “Those guys are all super players and it is going to be tough. We have the skill but it’s putting the total game together on the defensive end as well.” The Nitehawks also started camp with no set goaltending tandem, but Cominotto was confident that

two of the four goalies remaining would provide ample support between the pipes, and there is a possibility that last year’s late goaltending addition, Jared Schamerhorn, may be back if he doesn’t stay with the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. “There’s a trickle down effect that we seem to run into every year, and we’re fortunate enough to have players come in and fill roles that we need, and we’re hoping that happens again, because we don’t feel like we

didn’t have a no-trade clause, Kiprosoff indicated that he would not report to another team if dealt. The Toronto Maple Leafs pushed hardest to acquire his services but were unable to convince Kiprusoff to leave southern Alberta. Calgary general manager Jay Feaster said Kiprusoff was adamant that he wanted to end his career with the Flames. In 623 career regular-season games with Calgary and San Jose, he had a 319-213-71 record with a 2.49 GAA, a .912 save percentage and 44 shutouts.

are too far away from icing a very, very solid squad.” The Nitehawks will be in another tough Neil Murdoch Division race with Nelson and Castlegar, and with the Cyclone Taylor being hosted by Nelson this year, the stakes become even higher. “With the Cyclone Taylor being so close, we want to be there,” added Cominotto. “It’s going to be tough . . . we definitely have our work cut out for us but we want to be there and we’re going to make the calls that put us in a position to win the Cyclone Taylor.” The Nitehawks close out their preseason matchups against the Grand Forks Border Bruins in Grand Forks on Tuesday and will have to pare down the roster to 23 skaters before game time Friday when they play in Spokane for their first regular season game. The Nitehawks first home game goes Sept. 20 against the Bruins at 7:30 p.m. followed by a game versus the Summerland Steam on Sept. 21.

TV LISTINGS Elton John at Emmys

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Elton John is about to do something he’s never done: Perform live at the Emmy Awards. The television academy announced Monday that the 66-year-old musician will make his Emmy debut with a tribute to Liberace, whose life story is told in HBO’s “Behind the Candelabra.” The movie earned 15 Emmy nominations, including lead-actor bids for Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, who play Liberace and his lover Scott Thorson. Douglas and Damon are also set to serve as presenters at the Sept. 22 Emmy ceremony.

Husband refuses to go to see doctor out of fear Mailbox

would happen to his family if anything were to happen to him. My youngest child is only 4. How do I get him to cut back on his drinking and see a doctor? -- Worried Wife Dear Worried: We don’t think your husband is being intentionally selfish. We think he is afraid. People who avoid doctors and dentists often do so because they fear what the doctor will find. Those with a drinking problem may be concerned that the doctor will discover damage from the drinking, but they are unwilling to stop. If your husband’s drinking has increased, he

about these yearly winter visitors, and I feel used. -- N. in Arizona Dear N.: Unless you tell these people they cannot stay with you, they will continue to impose. Simply say, “It would be wonderful to see you. Unfortunately, we aren’t up to hosting guests. Here are the names of local hotels. Let us know when you get settled.” If anyone ends up at your condo, don’t be reluctant to ask them to pitch in with the groceries, cooking and cleaning. You did not, after all, invite them. Perhaps they will decide it isn’t quite so appealing as a “vacation” spot. At the very least, you won’t be doing all of the work. Dear Annie: I read the response from “Fran,” who took exception to your response to “Perplexed,” saying that kids shouldn’t have to call their parents every day, even if it only takes five minutes. I am a 61-yearold male. My grand-

mother used to live a block away. When I was a child, my mother would go see her every evening even if it was only for five minutes. One evening, I asked my mother why she went every single evening to see Grandma. She simply

looked at me and said, “Because tomorrow I may never get to talk to her again.” I understood exactly what she meant. P.S.: Grandma passed away five years later. -- Loving Dad in Pennsylvania Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy

may also be depressed and self-medicating. You can try talking to him about these possibilities. Unfortunately, he may not be willing to admit any of this or change his behavior, in which case, the best you can do is protect yourself. Make sure he has a valid will and his affairs are in order. And contact Al-Anon ( for support. Dear Annie: Two years ago, my husband and I bought a condo so we could spend our winters in a warm climate. We have family members who are now inviting themselves to “visit,” which means they are vacationing while we do all the work. We enjoy these relatives, but for a shorter time period. And having their own accommodations would be ideal. How would you suggest we handle this? We don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but we are not very excited

Dear Annie: I am a 34-year-old wife and mother of four. My husband is 44 and drinks on a daily basis. I don’t mind a few cans of beer when he gets home. However, he drinks at least a six-pack, usually more, every day after work. I’m tired of arguing with him about his drinking. He always responds, “At least I drink at home and not at the bar.” My husband also refuses to get an annual physical exam. He never sees a doctor or a dentist, even if he is sick. I’m really worried about his health. I want him to live long enough for our children to reach adulthood. I have asked my husband whether he will let me take him for a physical. If the doctor says he is healthy, my heart will be at peace. I think he is being selfish, only thinking of himself. He talks so much of pride. But he doesn’t consider what


Trail Times Tuesday, September 10, 2013 A15


YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Do something different today to satisfy your longing for adventure and a chance to learn something new. You want to break free from ho-hum routine. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is a good day to look at red-tape details regarding insurance matters, banking, taxes and anything that has to do with shared property. Just roll up your sleeves and dig in. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With the Moon opposite your sign today, you will have to compromise and be tolerant with others. Stay flexible, and be observant so that you know what others really want from you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Look for ways to assist coworkers today, because it will please you to do so. You

also might think of ways to improve your health or your diet. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a wonderful, carefree day! Enjoy schmoozing with others. Playful times with children will delight you. Movies, the arts and sports events also will appeal. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You want to cocoon at home if you have a chance. (Long, relaxing bath?) Conversations with female relatives will be significant today. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a busy day full of opportunities for short trips, conversations with others, plus reading and writing. Outline a to-do list and run some errands. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You will find that, for whatever reason, you identify with your possessions

today. You will enjoy being surrounded by familiar things. You also might study your cash-flow scene. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Because the Moon is in your sign today, you might be a bit more emotional than usual. However, you also are a bit luckier! Yay! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Seek out moments of peace and quiet if you can

find them today; you might need to hide. You want to catch your breath and refocus, especially those of you who are traveling. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A conversation with a female acquaintance could be significant today. You might want to confide something, or vice versa; you might need to be an attentive ear for someone else.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Personal details about your private life might be made public today, especially in the eyes of authority. Be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control. YOU BORN TODAY You have to admit you enjoy shocking others. Perhaps it’s because you like to take risks. Perhaps it’s because you like to puncture sacred









cows. You fight for the rights of the underdog well. You are free-spirited and frequently dramatic. Good news! This year might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
