Baby boy first to arrive in 2014 BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

Thirty two hours into 2014, a baby boy entered the world as planned and became the first baby born at the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital this year. Rylan Raymond Sousa was born seven pounds and 10 ounces into the arms of proud parents Theresa and Nelson Sousa on Jan. 2 at 8:35 a.m., following a scheduled C-section. “It was a nice surprise when we found out he was due around New Year,” said Theresa. “But we sat waiting through Christmas just in case I went into labour and had him before the scheduled cesarean.” The Sousas reside in Castlegar, but Theresa hails from Trail and has plenty of family on hand to dote on the bundle of joy, including brother Kaiden, who will be four in April. “He was all giddy when he first saw his mom,” said Nelson. “He ran up to check her belly because he was a little confused,” chuckled the father of two. “Now he definitely doesn't want anyone else but us to take Rylan home.” With their first child, the couple decided to go the nine months without knowing the sex of the baby. This time around was a different story because after her second trimester ultrasound, Theresa decided she wanted to know the answer to the gender question before the birth. But how she found out was unexpected.


Theresa and Nelson Sousa welcomed Rylan Raymond Sousa Jan. 2, the first baby born at the Trail hospital this year. “I had the results from the hospital in an envelope in my purse,” she said. “We were going to wait until Thanksgiving when we were with family to open it,” Theresa explained. “But without me knowing, Nelson took the envelope out of my purse.” The reason for the stealthy letter retrieval was the doting

Dad made a big plan for the boyor-girl reveal unbeknownst to his wife of five years. “I was old fashioned at first and didn't want to know,” said Nelson. “But Theresa did, so I took the envelope and handed it to the Pastry Shop and asked them to make us a cake and ice it pink or blue.”

So, the girls at the bakery were the first to see the baby's gender but they also had a trick up their sleeve. That night, Nelson reserved their usual table at Amore's Ristorante for a special date night, and asked the staff to decorate the window seating with pink and blue balloons to further

add to Theresa's surprise. After a romantic dinner, the cake was carried to the expectant parents’ table. Upon opening the cake-box, Theresa and Nelson were both surprised to see an elaborately decorated cake of purple, pink and blue. “It kind of tricked us because the booties were different colours and all it said was 'It's a ...,'” said Theresa. “It wasn't until we cut into it that we saw the centre icing was blue.” Debra Barembruch, part owner of the Gulch restaurant, said the glowing mother-to-be was completely surprised when the cake was brought table-side. “When they cut into it and discovered the baby was a boy, it brought tears to all of our eyes.” Trail's New Year's baby, with wavy light brown hair and rosebud lips, is a spitting image of big brother Kaiden Raymond. Besides being second generation Canadian Portuguese with maternal and paternal grandparents immigrants from the Azores, both boys are bestowed a very special legacy. The two young Sousas have the middle name, Raymond, in memory of Theresa's father Raymond Carreiro, a Trail man who tragically passed away in a car accident when she and her siblings were children. “Theresa always speaks so highly of how her father pampered the girls and her baby brother,” said Nelson. “She says that he always treated them like gems. And we need to honour that.”

Rescuers kept busy with out-of-bounds adventurers BY SHERI REGNIER Times Staff

A new chairlift on Grey Mountain brought new opportunity for misadventure at Red Mountain Resort last week after two American boy scouts skied out-of-bounds and spent a cold night in the back country Thursday night. This was the second incident on Grey since the lift first opened to the public Dec. 20. The first, was a group of 10 skiers from Washington who were lost on the

back side of the mountain after slipping under the ropes Dec. 29. “Both parties went by the ropes and ski area boundary signage and were totally out of bounds,” Don Thompson, vice president of operations and development at the resort, told the Trail Times Friday. “Today (Friday) our first priority was to find these young men and the file will be turned over to the RCMP.” Other than cold feet, no injuries were reported on either occasion and

all the skiers were airlifted to safety after Rossland Search and Rescue (SAR) deployed its team of skiers and snowmobiles to track and ultimately locate the missing. “We had good results,” said Graham Jones, SAR director. “It can't get any better than bringing everyone home safe and sound,” he continued. “And our personnel is a little tired but otherwise in great shape.” In the aftermath of the successful See ONGOING, Page 2

Ongoing debate over costs of rescues

FROM PAGE 1 rescues, comes the paperwork that Rossland SAR must submit to the province to cover expenses the volunteer organization incurred while searching for the skiers. “I put in expense accounts for what occurred here such as fuel and damaged or lost equipment,” said Jones. “That’s as far as we go,” he explained. “Fortunately for all of us in this country, people who are rescued do not have to pay for the service unless it is something specific.” Most SAR teams in the province are opposed to charging for searches, citing the potential cost might delay calls for assistance, a position Jones agrees with. “It’s been in discussion for quite awhile whether people should be held financially responsible,” he said. “Especially if they intentionally go out of bounds and put our members at risk as well,” continued Jones. “Our perspective is that we take all precautions to bring our (SAR) people home in a safe manner as much as we want to bring those we are rescuing home.” During both recoveries, a helicopter was summoned from Castlegar at $1,000 per

Lost skier adds to hectic start of season By Aaron Orlando

Revelstoke Times Review

Revelstoke Search & Rescue and Revelstoke Mountain Resort ski patrol spent part of Friday night and Saturday morning looking for a skier who left the resort’s boundary and got lost in a wooded area on Jan. 3. Revelstoke Mountain Resort general manager Rob Elliott explained the Revelstoke resident, a woman in her late 30s, is a season pass-holder familiar with the mountain. She decided to leave the run for fresh snow on the other side of the boundary. She soon became stuck in a flat area. Elliott said she became concerned about

The 16-year-old boy scouts from Pullman, Wash., were reported overdue Jan. 2 at 5:15 p.m. after they failed to meet with the rest of the 35-member troop, said Jones. SAR was on the mountain at 7 p.m. but due to weather and terrain, called off the search at 10:30 p.m. and

Elliott said she was “a little cold [but] happy” but was otherwise unharmed. Revelstoke RCMP are issuing a backcountry safety warning after a busy December in which Revelstoke Search & Rescue was deployed to find and rescue 18 lost skiers, sledders and snowboarders. Revelstoke RCMP spokesperson StaffSgt. Kurt Grabinsky said seven more people have been “located and rescued” in the first days of 2014, bringing the total to 25 in just over a month.

Jumbo judicial review begins


By Sally MacDonald Cranbrook Townsman

Jumbo Glacier Resort is the subject of a court case that began Monday. The Ktunaxa Nation Council has petitioned for a judicial review that will determine whether the B.C. government acted appropriately when it approved a Master Development Agreement for Jumbo Glacier Resort in March 2012. “We are seeking to have the province’s decision around the approval of the Master Development Agreement quashed, or at least reviewed,” said Ktunaxa Nation Council Chair Kathryn Teneese. The four-season ski resort has been approved by the B.C. government to begin construction on Jumbo Glacier, 55 kilometres west of Invermere. The Ktunaxa calls this location Qat’muk, which has great spiritual significance for its people as the home of the grizzly bear spirit. After the province approved Jumbo’s Master Development Agreement in 2012, the Ktunaxa felt the significance of Qat’muk had not been taken into account. “When we read their reasons for decision, we felt that they had not taken into consideration all of the information that we had provided with respect to our connection to the place and the connection to our spirituality,” said Teneese. “We are asking the court to determine whether the decision that was taken by the province was indeed taken with full information.” The judicial review is scheduled to commence on Monday in Vancouver Supreme Court and last for 10 days. However, Teneese said that as of Friday, the hearing had not been confirmed to be going ahead as scheduled because of a shortage of Supreme Court justices. “We are proceeding as if it is, because that’s what we’ve been told,” said Teneese. “I’m scheduled to fly out on Monday morning, so I’m going to be there, and hopefully there will be court.” In a judicial review, the three parties – in this case, the Ktunaxa, the B.C. government, and Jumbo Glacier Resorts Ltd – prepare written affidavits that are presented to the court. “Over the past while, there has been an exchange of huge amounts of documentation that sets out what our respective arguments are,” said Teneese. The Ktunaxa hope that East Kootenay residents who support their steps to protect Qat’muk will let them know. “We know there is a significant number of folks in the region – and probably outside of the region – who did not agree with the decision either,” said Teneese. “Any kind of reflection of that, we would be most appreciative of.” In November, the Ktunaxa held a special event attended by hundreds at the Key City Theatre, which explained the significance of Qat’muk through stories, singing and dancing. “We certainly appreciated the numbers of people who spoke out,” said Teneese. “I’m hoping that we are going to be able to do further events like that, in terms of sharing our perspective of our homeland with our neighbours. It has opened a door to move down this road of sharing and teaching each other about this place that we all call home.”

IH reports increase in H1N1 cases By Valerie Rossi Times Staff

Interior Health has reported an increase in influenza, with H1N1 as the most predominant circulating strain this season. The virus has been worldwide for almost five years, since the pandemic in 2009, and has now become a seasonal flu virus, according to Dr. Sue Pollock, medical health officer for Interior Health. There have been 30 labconfirmed cases (half H1N1) for all of Interior Health, with nine from the Kootenays. Pollock attributes this possibly to the holiday season when family's share more than just dinners and gifts.

“The caveat to that is that the lab-confirmed cases are only just the tip of the iceberg,” said Pollock. “Those are only the cases where people actually go into see their physician and get tested for influenza.” It's difficult to track actual numbers, she said, as there are other individuals who manage their symptoms at home. Unlike the common cold, influenza comes on suddenly. Symptoms include fatigue, fever, cough, runny nose and body aches. Young and middle-aged adults have less immunity to this flu strain, which is quite different from last season when those over 65 years

Skier found alive after caught in avalanche By Tamara Hynd Fernie Free Press

Sparwood Search and Rescue (SAR) was activated at 3:30 pm by the Elk Valley RCMP on Sunday, to rescue a backcountry skier who sustained minor injuries after being caught in an avalanche in the Corbin Road area approximately 25 km southeast of Sparwood. “One skier of a party of five had been buried in the avalanche,” said Ed Ehrler, Sparwood SAR manager. “They quickly

group.” Even though approximately 50 per cent of the population would have immunity against H1N1 at this time, Pollock still recommends individuals get the flu shot to protect themselves against the ever-changing strain. Though flu clinics have wrapped up, people can still see their physicians or go to a pharmacist. Higher risk groups include children under five years old, who were born after the 2009 pandemic year, and individuals with chronic health conditions. Beyond the flu shot, Pollock recommends good hand hygiene and staying home if symptoms come on.

old were more susceptible to H3N2, the prominent strain then. H1N1 isn't more serious per se, according to Pollock, though it may seem that way with the number of cases popping up in the province. It's unusual to see healthy, young people hospitalized and that seems to be gaining some attention. “But in fact every year we do expect hospitalizations and deaths from the flu,” said Pollock. “The flu can be a severe illness at any age but it just happens with H1N1, again the young and middle-aged adults, have less immunity and so we're seeing some severe illness in that aged

located the man and dug him out.” He was found alive but suffered a broken arm, bruises and was suffering from hypothermia. They performed first aid and sent two skiers out for help. After calling emergency services at the Coal Mountain Operations gatehouse, the skiers came across snowmobilers who were in the area. With their assistance they were able to bring the injured man out to a waiting ambulance while SAR was en route. B.C.

Ambulance transported the Lethbridge man to the Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie where he was treated for his injuries and expected to make a full recovery. The group had been skiing in and out of the tree line. Avalanche risk was forecasted as considerable in the alpine and moderate in the tree line. All of the five Alberta residents had Avalanche Skills Training 1 (AST 1) or higher and were carrying avalanche beacons, probes and shovels.

Environmental protesters crash Harper’s first stop in Vancouver THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER - A pair of climatechange protesters wearing cheap, thriftstore dress clothing evaded RCMP officers tasked with protecting Stephen Harper during an event in Vancouver on Monday, walking onto a stage within touching distance of the prime minister before they were whisked away. The security breach happened at a Vancouver Board of Trade event at a downtown hotel, where Harper participated in a friendly questionand-answer session aimed at promoting his government’s economic agenda. Roughly a minute after Harper was welcomed to the stage, a man and woman walked behind the prime minister holding signs attacking the Conservatives’ environmental record. One sign said Climate Justice Now, while the other featured a dark line

crossed through the phrase Conservatives Take Climate Change Seriously. The protesters were immediately taken off the stage and out of the room, prompting Harper to quip, “It wouldn’t be B.C. without it,” drawing laughter and applause from the audience. A group affiliated with Brigette DePape, the former page who walked on the Senate floor holding a Stop Harper sign during a 2011 throne speech, immediately claimed responsibility, saying the stunt was designed to criticize Canada’s environmental policies. The event took place in a large hotel ballroom, where hundreds of people gathered for a breakfast event featuring the prime minister. While reporters and TV camera operators were forced to have their equipment examined by a police dog, there appeared to be little in place - such as a security

checkpoint to check credentials or ID that would have prevented anyone from just walking into the room. Indeed, one of the two protesters, local activist Sean Devlin, said he and his colleague weren’t stopped or approached by security at any point before they walked on stage. “We just happened to be wearing black dress shirts and black pants and black aprons that we bought at Value Village, and we simply walked into the hotel,” Devlin said in an interview. “As soon as we entered the room, people seemed to be treating us like we were supposed to be there. It was quite easy.” The outfit cost about $7, he said.

The impounding fee for having an unlicensed dog is $ 75.00.

Devlin was thrown down a small flight of stairs as he was forced off stage, while the other protester, a female, was escorted away on foot. They were handcuffed and brought into a kitchen area to be questioned, said Devlin, but were quickly released without being charged. Neither the prime minister’s office nor the RCMP returned calls about the security breach, nor did the Vancouver Board of Trade. Harper made several stops in the Vancouver area on Monday, but he did not field any questions from reporters. The event was the first stop on a tour designed to highlight the Conservative government’s economic record, particularly the recent agreement in principle with the European Union on a free-trade agreement. But the trip also took Harper into the epicentre of antipathy towards the government’s environmental policies, particularly as the Northern Gateway pipeline and other natural resource projects make their way through various stages of review. Harper was careful not to take a position on the Northern Gateway pipeline during the questionand-answer session, insisting his govern-

ment will wait for the approval processes to unfold. A joint federal review panel approved the project, with conditions, in a report released last month, but the federal government has not yet said whether it will give the pipeline the go-ahead. “The government’s role is not to endorse particular pipelines or particular energy business projects,” he said. “Our job as a government is to set up proper processes of evaluation and scrutiny. We have a process of environmental review. “The government will follow that process and take appropriate decisions, as it always has.” The proposed $8-billion pipeline, which would move Alberta crude to Kitimat, on the B.C. coast, has prompted fierce protests from First Nations groups and environmentalists. B.C. Premier Christy Clark has publicly condemned the current pipeline proposal, saying it does not meet a list of five conditions the province has set out, including strict measures to protect the environment. However, the provincial government has also suggested the door isn’t closed yet.

Taxpayers foot bill for struggling AHL franchise By Dan Kinvig Abbotsford News

The Abbotsford Heat’s operating deficit for the 2012-13 season will cost local taxpayers $1.66 million. The City of Abbotsford released the numbers on Monday afternoon. The 2012-13 season was the fourth season of a 10-year supply fee agreement between the American Hockey League team and Global Spectrum, which manages the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on behalf of the city. The Heat are guaranteed an annual break-even budget of $5.7 million to play out of the AESC. In 2011-12, the public purse was tapped for $1.76 million. “While we recognize the current figure is an improvement from last year’s results, Council remains committed to the goal of improving the financial viability of the AESC and theAbbotsford Heat,” mayor Bruce Banman stated in a press release. According to AHL attendance figures, the Heat drew an average of 3,778 fans per game last season, which ranked 28th out of 30 teams in the league. That represented a 6.6 per cent increase over the 3,545 they drew the previous season, a boost which can largely be attributed to the effects of the NHL lockout.


Daily News closing Kamloops This Week The Kamloops Daily News is closing. After more than 80 years of publishing in Kamloops, the newspaper will cease operations within the next 60 days. On Monday, Glacier Media, parent company of the Daily News, served notice under Section 54 of the BC Labour Code to Unifor, representing unionized staff at the newspaper. In an interview with KTW, Daily News publisher Tim Shoults reiterated the point made in the original press release announcing the closure — it is economic. “This was certainly not our first option by any stretch of the imagination,” Shoults said. When asked if there were options other than closure and whether there were any parties interested in buying the newspaper, Shoults said he could not speak on that issue as Glacier Media and the union are still in negotiations on how and when the Daily News will be shuttered. Shoults said 43 full-time and 12 part-time employees will lose their jobs, in addition to a number of drivers and carriers. VISAC Gallery & Creative Centre

New Brunswick

Pot cop deemed fit to stand trial

THE CANADIAN PRESS FREDERICTON - A New Brunswick Mountie who attracted national attention for complaining that he wasn’t allowed to smoke medicinal marijuana for his posttraumatic stress disorder while in uniform has been deemed fit to stand trial on charges of assaulting two RCMP officers, the Crown and defence said Monday. Cpl. Ron Francis, who faces two counts of assaulting police and one count of resisting arrest, was released from custody after he underwent a 30-day psychiatric assessment. Francis was ordered to follow conditions including that he refrain from alcohol and non-prescription drugs, report to a local mental health clinic and not possess firearms. He smiled and waved to family and friends as he appeared in Fredericton provincial court but did not speak to reporters when he left the courthouse. The psychiatric assessment was not dealt with in court, but both Crown and defence lawyers later confirmed Francis was considered mentally fit to face trial. The case was adjourned until Feb. 4 after defence lawyer T.J. Burke asked for time to review disclosure before entering pleas. “My client has instructed us, regardless of what’s in the disclosure, to enter a plea of not guilty,” Burke said outside court. Burke accused the RCMP of failing to help Francis, who is on leave but remains a member of the police force. “The Mounties knew he was going to be released today and yet they have no action plan put in place for treatment for Ron Francis,” Burke said. “That in itself speaks volumes about the RCMP.” In November, Francis returned his red serge on orders from his superiors but accused the RCMP and the federal government of not doing enough to support officers with post-traumatic stress disorder. The RCMP said its officers who are prescribed medicinal marijuana should not be in red serge or regular uniform while taking their medication as it would not portray the right message to the public. Burke said the RCMP’s position doesn’t make sense. “If he is sitting on his back deck and smoking a joint, off-duty, people are going to have that same perception unless they understand why he has been prescribed marijuana.” RCMP Const. Jullie Rogers-Marsh said Francis remains an employee of the Mounties and as such has access to all services and programs that would be offered to help employees with mental health issues.

Power outages plague province

THE CANADIAN PRESS ST. JOHN’S, N.L. Thousands of people in Newfoundland continue to be without power as the island enters its fourth day of rolling blackouts to conserve energy and crews work to restore electricity. All schools throughout the island, including Memorial University and the College of the North Atlantic, have been shut down until Wednesday as a result of the power shortages. Newfoundland Power spokeswoman Michele Coughlan said about 30,000 customers were without electricity as of 8:30 a.m. local time Monday after a power plant went offline in the latest energy problem to hit the province in

recent days. Despite widespread blackouts in subzero temperatures, Premier Kathy Dunderdale reiterated that the situation did not amount to a crisis. “It’s a hardship to some people, but you know, our roads are open, people can move about the province,” Dunderdale told VOCM Radio in St. John’s. “Yes, people are a little cold, they can’t cook in their homes. We’re making sure there are warming centres for people who don’t have backup power in their homes.” Hospitals, police and government services were still operating, she added. Newfoundland was struggling with power shortages when there was a flash in the

switch yard at a power plant in Holyrood, N.L., on Sunday evening, causing further outages. There was no issue with the plant or the generating units and no one was injured, Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro said. Crews were trying to determine what caused the problem at the plant, located about 50 kilometres southwest of St. John’s. On Saturday, a fire broke out at the Sunnyside terminal station after a transformer malfunction, triggering more power interruptions. The malfunction, the cause of which is not yet known, came after rotating blackouts were implemented Thursday as utilities struggled with

increased demand because of cold temperatures. At the peak of the outages Saturday morning, about 190,000 customers were without power. Dunderdale defended the province’s energy system, saying no system in the world is 100 per cent reliable. “Yes, somebody could make the argument that you could build in a super amount of redundancy, but then we have to pay for that,” she said. She likened it to a homeowner having spare appliances like fridges and stoves stored in their garage just in case. “Is that practical? Is that sensible?” she



Changes sought for ‘cheque day’

THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - Edmonton’s police chief wants the provincial government to consider changing the way it distributes social assistance cheques to help reduce crime against the poor and the handicapped, especially in the inner city. The government distributes more than 80,000 cheques on one specific day each month to people across the province who are on income support programs. About three-quarters of those cheques are directly deposited to bank accounts, but others are mailed out and must be cashed. Chief Rod Knecht said this leads to criminals gathering on “cheque day” to prey on the weak and vulnerable such as those with mental

health and addictions problems. “We are talking with the government right now around: ‘Could we split those up, so we are issuing them to different people twice a month as opposed to once a month, or sporadically, so the predators won’t converge ... and victimize these people over and over again?”’ Knecht said. “Some people who are mentally challenged, the bad guys take them to one of these quick cheque-cashing places, getting them to cash the cheque and then taking the money away from them.” Knecht said some people are so frightened of being robbed that they spend their entire social assistance cheques in just a few days.

said. “Do you put that amount of cost on the ratepayer?” Paul Mackey, deputy city manager responsible for public works in St. John’s, said there is some concern about flooding with warmer temperatures and rain in the forecast. He said the city has experienced a combination of snow, unusually cold temperatures and high winds this winter, and the forecast of rain could be another complication. With snow accumulations standing at 140 centimetres in some places, Mackey said it’s the most snow this early in the winter that he has seen during his 22 years with the public works department.

Another year of enviro-wars begins


he new year lurched to life with a round of shouting about the environment, as our postindustrial, post-literate urban society grapples with conflicting claims of impending doom. The release of a group of Greenpeace protesters from a Russian prison was welcomed by TV news networks desperate to fill the holiday dead zone. Our intrepid Canadian pair got to describe over and over their bid to hang a strongly worded banner from a Russian offshore oil platform, and their horror when security forces boarded their vessel from helicopters and seized it. In all the fawning interviews, I kept waiting for two questions to be asked. What did they think Vladimir Putin’s regime would do? And what was the point? How is disrupting one oil platform for an hour going to save the planet?

The Greenpeace “activists” claimed this was the first oil platform to operate above the Arctic Circle. So it was a line in the snow, which I’m sure impressed Putin as he ramps up his territorial claim to include the North Pole. Meanwhile at the South Pole, TV anchors remained carefully sombre as they reported numerous bids to rescue a scientific vessel trapped in thick ice. No quips about the predictive abilities of climate scientists please! In fact this ill-fated voyage was a re-enactment of Sir Douglas Mawson’s 1913 expedition, with pro-global warming news outlets BBC and <I>The Guardian</I> aboard to capture the melting wrought by a century of industrial expansion. The rescue efforts (from a Russian ship by Chinese helicopters) also disrupted an Australian icebreaker’s supply trip for one of the



real scientific expeditions working in Antarctica. Skeptics had great fun with the Antarctic debacle, as they did earlier with the resurgence of Arctic ice that trapped climate tourists. As is normal in the Internet age, the climate debate has split into two fanatical factions, each of which promotes the most extreme examples it can find to prop up its version of truth. They call each other “warmists” and “deniers” among other pithy names.

Greenpeace is now known in B.C. as part of our Team America anti-tar sands brigade. They got off to a good start in 2014 by selectively seizing on reports of a new study of mercury contamination in northern Alberta. A “bullseye” of this dreaded neurotoxin has been drawn around oilsands operations by measuring traces in snow. The study by Environment Canada scientists isn’t published yet, but Postmedia News reported on a presentation in November by the researchers. “The federal scientists stress the mercury loadings around the oilsands are low compared to the contamination seen in many parts of North America including southern Ontario and southern Quebec,” the news report states. This is like the study of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) pollu-

tion in northern Alberta lakes that was twisted into propaganda and fed to the news media last year. This is another group of neurotoxins that are far more concentrated in urban areas than around remote industry. Consumption, rather than production of coal, diesel and other fuels produces the vast majority of these emissions. I look forward to the study of their effects around Lost Lagoon and Burnaby Lake. Of course safe levels of these materials have been set by Health Canada. You’re more likely to get significant exposure to mercury from a broken fluorescent lamp or the mercury amalgam in your old tooth fillings than you are from feeding ducks at the lake, although you might get a whiff of PAH when you gas up the car or board the bus.

When I performed the same calculations on cross-border return flights of similar individual distances (Canada-U.S. flights versus cross-border flights in the European Union), the five-fare bill for the 10,000 total kilometres flown was $1,277.94 in Europe. That included 43 per cent in taxes and fees. In North America, the five return fares with 9,660 kilometres flown would set back a passenger $2,266.13 with taxes/fees at 22 per cent of the total. Given that taxes and fees are higher in Europe, there must be another factor to help explain the lower European fares: competition. Europe’s pro-consumer ticket prices exist because European airlines and even airports have fiercely competed for passengers ever since the European Union air travel market was opened up to full competition in 1997. Any carrier from any member country can pick up and drop off passengers anywhere, regardless of the airline’s home country. That policy, known as “cabotage” or open skies, is in distinct contrast to North America where both U.S. and Canadian governments still prohibit “foreign-owned” airlines from offering wholly domestic flights in our markets. Because neither the United States nor Canada allows “foreign” carriers to pick up and drop off customers in their respective countries (they can do only one or the other), competition is less than it would be if the European approach was in play. That results in higher airline fares. If governments embraced competition more robustly, consumers would have nothing to lose but their overpriced taxi fares and high-priced airline tickets.

Budget surplus could be bigger: Flaherty THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The federal budget surplus could be bigger than predicted in 2015, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said in an interview aired Sunday. The assessment falls in line with projections from the parliamentary budget office that came a month ago. A Dec. 5 report from the PBO estimated the government could achieve a surplus of $4.6 billion by 2015, nearly $1 billion more than the estimate included in the November economic update. In an interview with CTV’s Question Period, Flaherty said Canada could have a bigger surplus than projected if both the domestic and U.S. economies continue to gain strength.

“We could have a larger surplus than we anticipate, but we will have a surplus,” said Flaherty. The Harper Conservatives are relying on balancing the books to help propel the party through a federal election campaign that’s scheduled for the fall of 2015. The PBO report, however, prefaced its surplus projections on expectations that the government would maintain EI premiums at current levels, that there would be no delays in selling off some public assets and that spending restraints would continue. And that is exactly what the government expects to do, said Flaherty. The government has fro-

zen basic EI premium rates at $1.88 for every $100 earned until 2016. As well, it has announced the sell off of some assets, including the Ridley Terminals and Dominion Coal Blocks in British Columbia and the government’s remaining stock of General Motors shares. “We’re controlling our own departmental spending,” the minister said, adding that his government will not reduce transfers to the provinces or cut programs or benefits. Flaherty also backed away from recent concerns over the levels of personal debt held by Canadians, telling CTV that moves to shore up mortgage rules have kept housing debt loads in check.

OBITUARIES BATH, ALBERT – It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Albert Bath on December 29, 2013 at the age of 94. Bert was born May 31, 1919 in Trail, BC, the eldest son of Albert John and Anna Louise Bath. Although Bert was a long time employee at Cominco with 43 years of service, he spent his younger days working at his father’s mill in the Pend Oreille Valley. During World War II Bert served his country overseas in France. Bert enjoyed all that the Kootenays had to offer with hunting, camping, fishing and getting firewood which was always a family outing. One of Bert’s favourite pastimes was time spent with his only grandchild Jesse. Bert was predeceased by his sister Louise Jones and brothers Fred and John Bath. Bert is survived by his wife Dora, his daughters Bev (Jack) and Nancy (Dennis), his grandson Jesse, his sisters Hilda McInnis, Gladys Parslow, his brothers Art Bath and Harold (Fermina) Bath and many nieces and nephews. Bert requested that there will be no service however there will be a celebration of life on his birthday May 31, 2014 at the Bath/Stephenson residence. As an expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #11 at 2141 Columbia Avenue, Trail, BC, V1R 1K8. Gwen Ziprick of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at *** LAYBOURNE, DOROTHY ELEANOR ‘ELLY’ – was born on August 1, 1947 in Trail and passed away peacefully on December 2, 2013 at Columbia View Lodge. Elly is survived by her children, Kendall Pols (Jeff) and Logan Laybourne (Carmell) as well as her grandchildren Sequoia, Madison, Zophia, Hendrix, Emerson and River. A Celebration of her life will take place on Friday, January 10th, 2014 from 1:00pm at Garage Restaurant; 1890 Columbia Avenue, Rossland. As an expression of sympathy, your donation to The West Kootenay Brain Injury Association in Castlegar would be greatly appreciated. “There’s a story behind everything… but behind all your stories is always your mother’s story because hers is where yours begins.” *** MURPHY, LYNN (MURPH) – March 18, 1940 – Trail B.C. to December 25, 2013 – Trail B.C. We are sorry to announce the sudden passing of Murph on December 25, 2013. Murph worked at Cominco for many years as a firefighter. He also spent some time working at the Crown Point and the Arlington Hotel in Trail and enjoyed his afternoons in the Fruitvale Hotel in his favorite chair. Murph was an avid camper, angler and hunter in his younger years where he made many friendships. He will be greatly missed by his many friends in the area. Murph leaves behind his four sisters Maureen, Doreen, Teresa, and Shelia. At Murph’s request there will be no service.

As an expression of sympathy donations in Murph’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society at 908 Rossland Avenue, Trail, BC, V1R 3N6. *** HUBBARD, JOAN – After a long and difficult battle with Parkinson’s disease, Joan passed peacefully away early Christmas morning with Bill at her side. She was predeceased by her daughter, Janet, her oldest brother, Arthur, and her parents Carol and Clarence Cruickshank. Joan leaves Bill, her loving husband of fifty-eight years, three daughters and their husbands, Gwen Hubbard (Harry Schlough) California, K. Lynn Hubbard (Peter Santangeli) California, and Elisabeth (Lis) Semenoff (Alfred Semenoff) British Columbia, her brother Donald Cruickshank (Claire) Ontario, seven grandchildren, Kate and Will Schlough, Grace, Gregory and Christopher Santangeli, Jessica and Chelsea Semenoff and many other treasured relatives in both Joan’s and Bill’s families. After completing her degree at Victoria College university of Toronto, Joan joined the family horticulture firm, C.A. Cruickshank Limited where she became the Corporate Secretary until the firm was sold and she took early retirement. Joan and Bill were fortunate to be able to indulge their travel bug both before and after their three daughters left for greener pastures. Many visits were to Bill’s relatives in Europe plus travels all over Canada and the United States. They also spent many happy times at the family cottage on Six Mile Lake as well as eighteen winters in Florida. They felt blessed to meet and know such wonderful and interesting people while living in Toronto, Victoria and Trail, British Columbia, and during their numerous travels. Joan loved to quilt, practice yoga and cook up a storm of delicious dishes, often recipes borrowed from other countries. Her daughters were never able to understand how she was able to hold a full-time job, raise three kids (+ one) and still bake umpteen batches of cookies for them, their classmates and their friends. If able, she was always ready to help her family, friends, and anyone else before thinking of herself. While in her earlier school years, she made lifelong friends as a member of the Bicycle Room Gang at Lawrence Park Collegiate and later she and Bill became part of a long-running Group of Twenty dinner club who would take turns each month hosting some type of entertainment, followed by a bang-up meal at the hosts’ home. Joan’s family is so greatly indebted to all the medical practitioners and other people who helped Joan both before and after she went into care in 2005. A special thank you is extended to all the staff at Rosewood Village in Trail, B.C. where she resided for the last five years. The staff has been invaluable! A private family gathering will be held at a later date to honour Joan’s life and to reminisce over the laughter and fun times we shared, often over a glass of wine. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Joan’s memory would be appreciated by her family to either the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital Health Foundation at 1200 Hospital Bench, Trail, BC, V1R 4M1 or online at or to a charity of your choice. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online register at Joan, a lady much loved.

Everly brothers defined rock harmony THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - Art Garfunkel answered the door to his Manhattan apartment holding a framed black-and-white picture of two smiling men. It was a test. Correctly identifying Phil and Don Everly in the picture would reveal me as a journalist knowledgeable about music and the roots of Garfunkel’s career. Flustered, I failed. It should have been obvious. The Everly Brothers, who will blend their voices no more following Phil’s death at 74 Friday from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, were the architects of rock ‘n’ roll harmony. Simon & Garfunkel were unimaginable without them. John Lennon and Paul McCartney took their cues, too. Their harmonies (and don’t forget George Harrison) formed the bedrock of the Beatles’ sound. Like Garfunkel, Phil sang the high notes. He had the lighter colored hair. He would step away from the microphone, like on “Cathy’s Clown,” to let older brother Don sing a few lines alone and you noticed how unremarkable Don’s voice was unadorned. Only when that voice merged with his brother’s as a single, new voice did it become special. The Everly Brothers’ reign on the pop charts was relatively short, from the mid-1950s until the British Invasion swept in a new generation in the early 1960s. The Everlys receded, but it was plain the newcomers had been listening. Sweet as they sounded, their hits resonated because they taught a huge post-World War II generation as it was growing up that love wasn’t all roses, blue skies and candy. “Bye bye love,” they sang. “Bye bye happiness. Hello loneliness. I think I’m a-gonna cry.” In the sumptuous “All I Have to Do is Dream,” the romance is frustratingly unrequited. “I need you so, that I could die,” they sang. “When Will I Be Loved,” they wondered. Even success was fraught with worry: the couple in “Wake Up Little Susie” fretted over whether anyone would believe their excuses when they fell asleep watching a movie. Phil and Don Everly pioneered another rock staple: feuding partners, often brothers, who were never as compelling apart as they were together. Phil famously threw down his guitar and walked offstage during a 1973 gig in California, prompting Don to tell the crowd, “The Everly Brothers died 10 years ago.” Ray and Dave Davies of the Kinks carried on that fractious tradition, as did Noel and Liam Gallagher of Oasis. Simon & Garfunkel invited the Everly Brothers to be their opening act for a 2003 tour. Paul Simon, often exasperated by his on-again, off-again partner and quite accomplished on his own, couldn’t help but be amused by the irony of two partnerships where real-life harmony didn’t match what was onstage. Phil and Don hadn’t seen each other for three years before meeting in the parking lot before the first show. “They unpacked their guitars - those famous black guitars and they opened their mouths and started to sing,” Simon told Rolling Stone magazine. “And after all these years, it was still that sound I fell in love with as a kid. It was still perfect.” Famous fans paid their debts. Simon and Garfunkel could have invited anyone for that 2003 tour. McCartney opened the door for “Phil and Don” in his 1976 hit “Let ‘Em In” and wrote the single “On the Wings of a Nightingale” for their 1984 reunion. Rockpile partners Dave Edmunds and Nick Lowe recorded an EP of Everly covers and Edmunds produced the “EB 84” album. The best tribute always comes when singers discover that the sound of their voices together creates a magic that isn’t there when each is alone, like John Paul White and Joy Williams of the too-aptly named The Civil Wars. Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers are introducing harmony to a new generation. Phil’s death comes just as Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day and Norah Jones, are on the charts with “Foreverly,” a songfor-song cover of the Everly Brothers’ 1958 album “Songs Our Daddy Taught Us” (daddy was a country music musician in his own right).

Smoke Eaters split weekend games Warriors top Smokies By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

After a great effort in a 4-1 win against the Vernon Vipers at the Cominco Arena on Friday, the Trail Smoke Eaters had a relapse Saturday, suffering a 7-3 loss on the road to the West Kelowna Warriors. Warriors’ forward Seb Lloyd scored the winning goal at 7:13 of the second period to give West Kelowna a 4-1 lead. It was the second of the night for the Harvard commit and his 13th goal of the season, as West Kelowna won its fourth game in a row. The Warriors currently sit in third spot in the Interior division with 48 points, one back of the Vipers who beat Nanaimo 3-2 on Saturday after their setback to the Smokies. Jordan Masters would open the scoring with his 17th of the season after Smokie AP Dakota Kittle was sent off for crosschecking at 8:57. Less than a minute later Lloyd would net his first on the night, beating Trail goalie Adam Todd, and David Pope would make it 3-0 at 11:23 before the Smokies’ Scott Davidson converted a pass from Jake Lucchini to cut the lead to two heading into the second frame. However, period two was all Kelowna. following Lloyd’s winner, Tyson Dallman would chase Todd from the net with his 10th of the year, and after Braeden Cross scored his first as a Smoke Eater, Dallman would net his 11th on the power play to make it 6-2. Another power-play marker by Reid Simmonds with 24 seconds remaining in the period would round out the scoring for the Warriors, while Jake Kauppila scored Trail’s final tally at 17:37 of the third. Trail added two new players to the line up this weekend signing Cross and Taylor Armbruster from the Kerry Park Islanders of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League. Armbruster, 17, is a six-footthree, 190-pound defenceman who adds much-needed size and versatility on the back end, while Cross, also 17,

Special teams proved key for the Smoke Eaters as the penalty kill went 4-for-4 and the power play 2-for-6 on the night. The Stephens line was particularly effective in shutting down the line of Vernon’s leading scorer Mike McNicholas, Hannoun, and Sparrow. The Smoke Eaters fired 31 shots at the Vipers net, in its second solid effort in as many games. “They worked really hard,” Vernon head coach Jason Williamson told the Vernon Morningstar, of the youthful Smokies. “They were aggressive. We created offence but they did too. They’re going to be good in the future.” Also, thanks to a robust crowd at the Dec. 30th game versus West Kelowna, the Smokies were able to raise $1,200 for Cadance Brace, a local five-year-old girl afflicted with Leukemia. Trail will host the Penticton Vees on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. before playing the next 7-of-8 on the road.

Nitehawks hang on for 10th straight

By Times Staff The Beaver Valley Nitehawks scored three times in the opening period then coasted the rest of the way, letting goaltender Brett Clark secure a 3-1 win over the Braves at the B.V. Arena Saturday. Clark stopped 43 shots, including 17 in the final frame, as the Nitehawks earned their 10th straight victory in KIJHL action. Ryan Edwards scored the winner on the power play after Taylor Everhart received a penalty for high sticking. The Trail native took a pass from Dallas Calvin and wired it by Braves netminder Zach Straza at 8:14 to give the Nitehawks a 2-0 lead. Edwards’ goal and an assist improved his numbers to 23 goals and 38 assists on the season, fifth best in league scoring. Sam Swanson opened the scoring at 11:42 mark, netting his eighth goal of the year, and Riley Brandt put the Hawks up 3-0 at 4:37 converting an Edwards pass. Only the Braves’ Curtis Redding could beat Clark on the night, ruining his shut out bid at 8:24 of the third period. The Nelson Leafs meanwhile reclaimed top spot in the Neil Murdoch division with three straight wins on the weekend that included a 6-4 win over Columbia Valley on Sunday, a 7-2 drubbing of Golden Saturday, in which Trail native Jamie Vlanich netted a hat trick and an assist, and a 3-1 victory over Kimberley Friday. The Leafs hold a one point lead over the Nitehawks with 60 points, however, B.V. has a game in hand. The Nitehawks next game is Friday when they host the Kelowna Chiefs at the Beaver Valley Arena at 7:30 p.m.

Midgets Ice All Stars By Times Staff Three players from the Kootenay Ice Major Midget team were selected to play in the 2014 Major Midget League All Star game in Langley Jan. 17. Goaltender Carson Schammerhorn of Trail, the Ice’s leading scorer forward Coy Prevost of Kimberley, and defenceman Austin Tambellini of Nelson will lace up the skates for Team White and Blue in the annual match up along with 40 other players from each of the 11 B.C. league teams. All teams attend the All-Star weekend, watching the selected All Stars take to the ice at 6 p.m. on Friday before playing a double-header at the George Preston Centre on Saturday and Sunday. The Kootenay Ice Major Midgets are scheduled to play the Valley West Hawks. Meanwhile the Ice will host the North Island Silvertips this Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. at the Castlegar Rec Complex.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - On a wintry weekend, Disney’s “Frozen” retook the box-office top spot with $20.7 million, freezing out the horror spinoff “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.” Paramount’s “The Marked Ones” debuted in second place with $18.2 million, a total that includes Thursday night screenings, according to studio estimates Sunday. The film is a standalone story spun off from the lucrative, lowbudget horror franchise “Paranormal Activity,” the fifth of which will be released in October. But it wasn’t able to overcome Disney’s animated “Frozen,” which has been a hit for family audiences for the last seven weeks. It has now surpassed $600 million worldwide, making it the second highest Disney Animation release, behind “The Lion King.” It will soon pass that film’s $312 million domestic haul, too. It’s extremely rare for a film to lead the box office in its seventh weekend, a feat accomplished by the likes of “Avatar” and, to go further back, “Legends of the Fall.” It’s rarer still for a film to retake the box-office lead so late in its theatrical run. The last movie to do so was Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” in 2004, according to box-office tracker Rentrak. Another hold-over, Warner Bros.’ “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” came in third with $16.3 million in its fourth week of release after narrowly topping the busy Christmas weekend box office. Like “Frozen,” Peter Jackson’s second installment of his “Hobbit” trilogy has benefitted from the lengthy holiday moviegoing season. Its domestic cumulative total is $229.6 million. Other successes include Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” ($63.3 million in two weeks for Paramount), “American Hustle” ($88.7 million in four weeks for Sony) and the Will Ferrell sequel “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” (well past $100 million domestically in three weeks). Having a harder time finding audiences are “47 Ronin” starring Keanu Reeves (a $175 million bomb earning $32.6 million in two weeks), the Robert De Niro-Sylvester Stallone boxing comedy “Grudge Match” ($24.9 million in two weeks) and Ben Stiller’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” ($45.7 million in two weeks).

Eurythmics reunite MONday & Movies for Beatles tribute MONDAY EVENING

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK - The Eurythmics are reuniting to pay tribute to the Beatles. The Recording Academy announced Monday that Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart will perform as a duo for “The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles.” The event will be taped at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Jan. 27, a day after the Grammy Awards. Longtime Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich, who is also producing the Beatles special, thought the Eurythmics would be ideal to honour the iconic group. “When it came around to booking this show, what I felt was important was to try and find those artists who not only would be able to interpret Beatles songs, but would also have an ... understanding of what they meant,” he said in an interview. The Eurythmics, who sold millions of albums and whose hits include “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” released their debut in 1981. Ehrlich said Lennox and Stewart, who have launched successful solo careers, are thrilled to perform in tribute to the Beatles. Ehrlich wouldn’t say which Beatles tune the British duo would perform, but John Mayer and Keith Urban will pair up to perform “Don’t Let Me Down,” while Alicia Keys and John Legend will perform a duet on “Let It Be.” Maroon 5 also will hit the stage. The special will air on CBS on Feb. 9 - exactly 50 years after the Beatles made their U.S. debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” An estimated 73 million viewers tuned in to watch the event, which has become one of the world’s top cultural moments. “They really did change people’s lives, so what I’m hoping this show ... gets across is the message that occasionally in history we are touched by certain artists who have a profound effect on us beyond just the music that they make,” Ehrlich said. Ehrlich wouldn’t confirm if Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr would attend the event, though the Beatles will be honoured with a lifetime achievement award two days earlier at the Recording Academy’s Special Merit Awards in Los Angeles. The special will include about a dozen performances, Ehrlich said.

Just yesterday, he made himself a sandwich for dinner and never even asked whether I wanted anything. He doesn’t pressure me to cook. I do it because I know he likes to have dinner and I enjoy cooking. But I would certainly never eat in front of him and not offer something. Am I being overly sensitive? Is it too much to ask for help with cleaning and cooking or to have my feelings taken seriously? -- Hurt and Exasperated Dear Hurt: We think your husband is a little lazy and has been trained to be waited on. He needs to step up and be more of a full partner. Separate the household chores and assign specific tasks for each of you. If you enjoy cooking, you

could do more of that, and he could do more cleaning. Ask what he’d prefer. If he doesn’t follow through, do NOT pick up after him. Or, if you can afford it, hire someone. Dear Annie: “Ms. Bit” said she was having trouble reaching

certain body parts to clean them. I suggest she upgrade her toilet to a bidet toilet that provides a warm water bath and a drying fan for the parts in question. My elderly parents had one installed years ago, and it served them well. -- A Fan of

means you would not be around to show her son what a stable person looks like. You also could slowly make yourself less available to Agnes so there is no confrontation at all while the relationship withers. But a true friend would tell Agnes gently and kindly that you are worried about her. In turn, Agnes, while not pleased, would accept your concern and not cut you out of her son’s life. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been married for two years, and we have been together for 16. This is my third marriage and his second. He is 61, and I am 58. I work out of the home, and he is now semi-retired. I would appreciate some help with cooking or cleaning, but he always says I wouldn’t be happy with the way he does it. I’ve told him this is a cop-out. I honestly do not care how well he does, only that there is

2014 Conceptis Puzzles, Dist. by King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Dear Annie: When I was a freshman in high school, I became friends with “Agnes,” who was (like me) something of a social outcast. Agnes still considers me to be her best friend. That was 10 years ago. We have both grown up to be very different people. I am repelled by Agnes’ lifestyle of promiscuity and high-risk behaviors. Although she is free with praise and is loyal in an odd sort of way, she is incredibly narcissistic and often condescending. Add to that a volatile and sometimes violent temper, and she is a person I no longer want in my life. Still, we have a history. When she says I am “the only one who has stuck with her,” I feel a responsibility to maintain the friendship. I am also fond of her 5-year-old son. I don’t want to be dishonest by pretending that her decisions, her manner and her




YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) When dealing with others today, be careful you don’t go overboard in some way. Don’t throw your weight around, and don’t promise more than you could deliver. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your ambition at work today is strong, which is why you are delegating to others. Just make sure your goals are realistic. (You don’t want to end up with egg on your face.) GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This is a playful, fun-loving day! However, be careful you don’t overdo it, especially partying and drinking. Easy does it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You have lots of energy to make things happen at home today. (It’s a good day to move the furniture around.) Furthermore, your optimism will encourage family mem-

bers to help you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a strong day for those of you who sell, market, promote, teach, act or need to persuade others. You believe what you say, and your belief in your own words will sell your ideas. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) You certainly will work hard to earn money today; however, some of you will work equally hard spending it! (You’re tempted to make a major purchase.) LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a successful, energetic day for you. However, proceed cautiously, and don’t act recklessly. Keep track of what you’re doing, and be sensible. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You will enjoy solitude in beautiful surroundings today, or time to kick back and relax privately. You feel that life is abundant, and you want

to luxuriate in these positive vibes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your relationship with others in group situations is positive today. People will follow suit if you need them to join in whatever you’re doing. You’re like the pied piper! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your enthusiasm and ambition will win the day today. People are impressed by your

confidence and appearance of success. (Everyone likes a winner.) AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Make plans to travel today, because this will please you. Do anything that gives you the feeling of expanding your world and broadening your horizons. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Discussions about shared property or how to divide

an inheritance will go well today. But protect your own self-interests and don’t give away the farm. You count, too. YOU BORN TODAY You have confidence, and your confidence plus your particular expertise make you influential. You have an unusual ability to focus and concentrate your energy. You are also a risk-taker capable of overcoming handicaps both physical and psychological.









You work extremely hard. In the year ahead, you will study and learn something valuable for your future. Birthdate of: Elvis Presley, singer/actor; Sarah Polley, actress; David Bowie musician/actor.
