Changes to ALR a ‘slippery slope,’ says MLA



Changes to the B.C. Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) will result in the loss of muchneeded farmland and will eventually do away with the 100 Mile Diet, according to Kootenay West MLA Katrine Conroy. The NDP MLA is not keen on the Liberals’ announcement of dividing the land reserve into two zones, which could open up her riding's farmland to development. The change would see the land reserve divided into two Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) zones — opening up much of the Interior's farmland to more development — under changes introduced by the provincial government last week. Under the new system, Zone 1, which covers prime farmland in the Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver Island, will see very few changes. While Zone 2, covering farmland in the North, the Kootenays and the rest of the Interior, will see farmland protection rules loosened to allow for more nonfarming activities. Conroy lives in Pass Creek, where she raises cattle on ALR land. She, along with the opposition caucus, doesn't want this to pass and has an online petition that has gained much attention from like-minded folks. “I think it's the start of a slippery slope of taking out agricultural land from the reserve so that people can make money off of it,” she said from her office in Victoria. “The agricultural land reserve has been here since 1973 and the whole goal around it was to protect land permanently and we think that this is the start of removing it, to ensure that friends and insiders have the accessibility to a commission where they can say 'I want to subdivide it.'” This is not how the province has presented the news. The changes, resulting from the government's core review of the commission, will help farmers and farm families get ahead by recognizing regional differences, strengthening regional decision making and enhancing the ALC's service to the public, it was noted in a news release from the Ministry of Agriculture. The introduction of two ALC administered zones is designed to better recognize the province's regional differences, it is also noted. In Zone 1, where land is in greater demand and there are development and population pressures, decisions will continue to be made on the basis of the original principle of preserving agricultural land.

Warmer weather a wake-up call for bears BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

Bears living within Greater Trail are enjoying the last leg of hibernation before the warmer weather and familiar smells awake them from their den, according to the local WildSafeBC coordinator. Though Sharon Wieder's work doesn't officially start up until May, she expects reports will begin to trickle in

soon. “In Trail, obviously it's warmer a lot faster than up in the mountains so if the snow is melted high enough up where the bears have been denning then they'll start to come out,” she said. “The smells will bring them out like the fresh greens — grass is what they usually eat in the spring and things are starting to green up.” In the meantime, she's reminding

residents that it's time to assess their animal attractants. “The big one is the bird feeder and convincing people it's time to put them away or at least not leave them out all the time because that will attract all kinds of animals,” she said, adding that sunflower seeds offer hungry bruins about 10 times as many calories as huckleberries.

Injured skier rescued on Kootenay Pass


United Way open house on Wednesday

By Greg Nesteroff Nelson Star

A backcountry skier was rescued Saturday morning off the Kootenay Pass after spending about 20 hours with a painful injury. Nelson Search and Rescue spokesman Chris Armstrong said they were paged between 4:30 and 5 p.m. Friday for a medical rescue following an accident “a good ways” in the backcountry. However, it did not involve an avalanche. A dozen searchers responded, ten of “The poor guy whom skied in and spent 20 hours reached the man by out there ... A 9 p.m. — due to the time of the call, they very painful weren’t able to fly in thing to be put by helicopter. through.” Armstrong said the location was Chris Armstrong “quite severe” and they were prevented from getting the man out by darkness, snow, and steep terrain. They called for more help to try to bring him out, and teams from South Columbia and Rossland search and rescue responded. However, due to the conditions they decided to stay the night. Late Saturday morning, members of Kimberley and Castlegar search and rescue also responded, as well as Revelstoke, who brought in their long line rescue team to fly the man out to an ambulance. He had a severe compound tibia fracture just above his ski boot, Armstrong said. “The poor guy spent 20 hours out there … A very painful thing to be put through.” He thought the man was in his 20s but did not know where he was from, nor how many others were in his party.

RDKB requests status quo FROM PAGE 1 But in Zone 2, where growing seasons are shorter and there are lower value crops, decisions will now, in addition to the original principle, include additional considerations to provide farmers more flexibility to support their farming operations. But this is not how Conroy sees it. “The concern is how much land do we remove?” she asked. “We all need to eat, we all need to grow food, and we need to have land to do this on and you think ‘My gosh what’s next?’” The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary sent a letter to the Ministry of Agriculture asking to maintain the commission as a single provincewide zone and if there are any changes proposed to the commission or the ALR, that full consultation with local governments and stakeholders be undertaken, according to Mark Andison, RDKB general manager of operations. The Agricultural Land Commission is an independent, administrative tribunal. The ALC makes land use decisions within the Agriculture Land Reserve.

Trail United Way executive director, Naomi McKimmie, is inviting the community, United Way sponsors, and beneficiary agencies to come and see the charity’s new office space during an open house on Wednesday from 1 to 5 p.m. in their new location at 855 Farwell Street in downtown Trail.

Bears stick to familiar pathways FROM PAGE 1 The problem areas continue to be determined mostly by geography; specifically in Trail this includes West Trail because it’s built on a mountainside, Glenmerry’s close proximity to the river, the new development behind Waneta due to the creek that runs right through it and Sunningdale, as it’s right up against the mountain. In Rossland, basically anywhere is considered bear grounds. “The interesting thing is that bears have their pathways, and they’ve been using the same ones for hundreds of years,” she added. This preferred route of travel was recently mapped out in a bear hazard assessment and is also clocked regularly on the WildSafeBC website by a wildlife alert reporting map, which

can automatically tell residents when an animal is spotted in their neighbourhood via the Report All Poachers and Polluters line (1-877-952-7277). The former Bear Aware coordinator’s focus has broadened since the program became supported by WildSafeBC, which not only deals with bears but other animals such as coyotes and cougars. Though Wieder has received word that program funding is in place this year, the exact dollar figure won’t be known until mid-month when the BC Conservation Foundation will find out how much the government has granted. Community program funds also come from Trail and Rossland, which she said has provided $2,500 each for about the last five years. In other Greater

that’s usually an animal that’s either really old, young or injured and for some reason just doesn’t have the hunting capabilities of a healthy animal so they’ll try and find easier prey” Conservation officer Tobe Sprado hasn’t fielded any complaints of bears nor cougars in the Greater Trail area as of yet and couldn’t

speculate on what the season will bring. “It all depends on what the weather brings in a way of precipitation and that sort of thing,” he said. “If there is sufficient precipitation, especially in the more critical times such as July for the huckleberries, then things bode well for the public as well as for the bears.”

Coroner identifies Trail crash victim By Times Staff The BC Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a woman who died after a collision in East Trail last week. Maria Sodini, 79, was the front seat passenger in a vehicle that collided with a pickup truck at the corner of Second Avenue and Bailey Street at about 6 p.m. Tuesday. She was rushed to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries the following day. The BC Coroners Service and West Kootenay Traffic Services continue to investigate this death.

Trail communities like Montrose, where there have been reported bear problems, residents rely on community newsletters and online notices for living with bear education and reminders. The WildSafeBC program is designed to reduce human-wildlife conflicts by keeping wildlife un-habituated. Managing attractants such as garbage and garden waste continues to be the key message but now with a broader scope, Wieder is also asking residents to manage their pets, too, by not leaving them outside unattended for prolonged periods of time and leashing them up on walks. “Cougars do live in the area but they’re pretty secretive,” she said. “We’ve had a few cases in the past few years where there has been cougars coming into urban areas and

Disclosure rules coming for local elections By Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Candidates for municipal and school board elections will have to register with Elections BC and report donations of $50 or more when they run in province-wide elections this November. Legislation tabled by the B.C. government Wednesday will extend the term of office to four years as well as tightening rules for campaign financing and advertising. Third-party advertisers will also have to register before promoting candidates, and financial disclosures will

have to be filed with Elections BC within 90 days of the vote. Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Coralee Oakes said the new rules have been developed in consultation with the Union of B.C. Municipalities, and that discussion determined that an outright ban on anonymous donations is too strict. The disclosure rule will also apply to third-party advertisers, who will have to report sources of donations more than $50 and identify themselves in advertising. Campaign spending limits won’t be imposed until after

the elections scheduled for Nov. 15, 2014. Oakes said that measure is complex because the variety of local governments in B.C. is the widest in Canada, including large and small communities, regional districts, school boards, park boards and the Islands Trust that governs the Gulf Islands. The legislation also moves the date of local elections from November to October, but that won’t take effect until 2018. UBCM president Rhona Martin, a director of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, said the move to four-year terms is not a

“perfect solution,” but it was supported by a majority of delegates at last year’s convention. In previous votes, some small community representatives said even threeyear terms may be too long for a time-consuming commitment with little pay. The change in reporting rules creates a large task of compliance and enforcement for Elections BC. Oakes said the Elections BC will present its proposed costs to the legislature committee that determines budgets for all independent officers, including the Auditor General.

Province signs on for training program By Tom Fletcher Black Press

B.C. has signed on to the federal government’s program to match skills training with employers’ needs, after negotiations to maintain most of the existing programs to assist

older and disadvantaged people. B.C. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond signed onto the Canada Job Grant program in Ottawa Monday, as provinces and territories agreed to a program that requires employers to put up

a third of training costs. Once the program takes effect, the federal share will be up to $10,000 per trainee with another $5,000 from a sponsoring employer. F e d e r a l Employment Minister

Kenney said the new program will address the need for thousands of skilled workers to develop liquefied natural gas plants, pipelines and other projects in B.C. There is no general labour shortage in Canada, but the $900 million a year the federal government spends on postsecondary training needs to match up better with the available jobs, he said. “So we need to reengineer our education system,” Kenney said. “B.C. has taken the lead on this, to prepare young people for the jobs of the future, to educate them for the labour market.” The agreement means B.C. will use 40% of Ottawa’s $65 million annual skills

training transfer for the new program. “We very much support the concept of employer-led and driven employment programs, and I think that’s actually where we ended up with the Canada Job Grant file,” Bond said. B.C. objected to the program initially, because it would have taken federal money away from existing training programs for disadvantaged groups. Kenney said the amended deal allows 90 per cent of B.C.’s training programs to carry on. One of those is a 2007 federal-provincial program for workers aged 55 to 64 in communities with fewer than 250,000 people that have high unemployment or closure of employers.


Few oppose city’s plan to borrow cash for new police station By Alistair Waters Kelowna Capital News

Opponents of the city’s plan to borrow $42.3 million to build a new police services building appear to be few and far between—or at least they were not willing to sign petitions saying so. On Friday, Kelowna’s city clerk has validated the results of the controversial “alternate approval process” used by city hall to gain public approval to borrow the money. According to the clerk’s office, just 198 people registered their opposition to the borrowing. That translates to just 0.2 per cent of electors. In order to force council to consider holding a vote or reconsider the entire plan, at least 10 per cent of voters (9,484 residents) had to register their opposition within the 30-day period that ended March 28. The alternative approval process, which bypasses a public vote in favour of putting the onus on opponents when it comes to large-scale city borrowing, is a similar form of “negative option billing” that is illegal among private businesses in B.C.


Measles outbreak largely contained

The Chilliwack Progress The measles outbreak in B.C. has been largely contained to the Chilliwack area, health officials declared Monday. Health minister Terry Lake credited the work done by Fraser Health, and specifically chief medical health officer Dr. Paul Van Buynder, for the success. “Dr. Van Buynder and Fraser Health have shown excellent guidance and management of this difficult situation,” said Lake. “I applaud the professionalism and tireless efforts of the dedicated staff who have engaged in an open and respectful manner with the leaders, families and individuals in these affected communities.” Now into its fourth week, the outbreak has generated 320 cases so far, health officials said. But nearly all those cases have been limited to the original source community which shuns vaccinations on religious grounds. The threat to communities outside the eastern Fraser Valley is considered low. The measles outbreak is expected to continue for another two weeks as the second and third wave of the disease makes its way through the communities.

Deadly fire investigated THE CANADIAN PRESS CHARLOTTETOWN - Police say their investigation into the deaths of three teenaged boys whose bodies were found after a weekend fire at an abandoned building in Charlottetown will now shift to finding out what led to the tragedy. Deputy Chief Gary McGuigan of the Charlottetown Police Briefs Service said Monday the investigation is entering a new phase. “Now our focus will be on trying to get a timeline on the events and activities of these four young men who came into Charlottetown, see what led to this tragedy and try to make some sense out of it,” McGuigan said. He said investigators were speaking to acquaintances and friends of the boys in order to get a better understanding of why there were in the building, which was vacant for years, when it caught fire. Police identified the three teenagers as: Joseph Reeves, 19, Brandon MacKinnon, 16, and Kenneth Irving, 15. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but police said they do not suspect foul play. Bad weather and the condition of the building are hampering the investigation by fire officials, police said. “There is a tremendous amount of debris that has to be sifted through,” McGuigan said.



Raise to minimum wage THE CANADIAN PRESS REGINA - Minimum-wage earners in Saskatchewan will be pocketing more money this year. The provincial government says the minimum wage is going up to $10.20 an hour from $10 starting in October. Labour Relations Minister Don Morgan says increasing the minimum wage will give minimum-wage earners more disposable income and improve their standard of living. The government also says it will introduce regulations in the next few weeks to provide for regular indexing of the minimum wage each year. Morgan says indexing the minimum wage will provide security for minimumwage earners and predictability for business owners. The change in the minimum wage will be announced on or before June 30 of each year, with that change coming in effect on Oct. 1 of the same year.


Casino hours extended THE CANADIAN PRESS EDMONTON - Concerns are being raised about extended table hours at Alberta casinos, which take effect this week. Allan Bolstad, executive director of the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues, says it’s hard enough to find people to volunteer for casinos as it is. Beginning today, casino table games will be allowed to operate on the same hours as slot machines - for 17 consecutive hours from 10 a.m. until 3 a.m. Under the previous Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission policy, casino table games were only allowed to operate a maximum of 14 consecutive hours, beginning no earlier than 10 a.m. and ending no later than 2 a.m.

Feds appeal marijuana injunction THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The federal government will contest an injunction that allows people to continue to grow medical marijuana while a full legal challenge plays out in the courts. It is the latest salvo in a series of legal actions over how the government administers its medical pot program. Earlier this month, Federal Court Judge Michael Manson ruled that patients currently licensed to grow their own marijuana would be permitted to produce the drug even after new regulations banning the practice take effect Tuesday. The judge granted an application from medical marijuana patients seeking a temporary injunction to preserve the status quo until their constitutional challenge of the new system could be heard. The government said Monday it will ask the Federal Court of Appeal to overturn the injunction. Under the existing federal program, thousands of people have licences to cultivate marijuana for personal use to help ease painful symptoms of condi-

tions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis. The government says growing marijuana at home poses hazards including mould, fire, toxic chemicals and the threat of home invasion by criminals. It plans to allow only select commercial producers to grow marijuana under “secure and sanitary conditions” for distribution through the mail, in dried form, to medically approved patients. Health Minister Rona Ambrose made it clear in a statement Monday that the only reason her department administers a program is a 14-year-old court ruling that said there must be reasonable access to a legal source of marijuana for medical purposes. “I want to emphasize that marijuana is not an approved drug or medicine in Canada,” Ambrose said. However, the injunction stands for the moment, meaning patients can continue to grow pot - at least until the next ruling. It is unclear when the federal appeal of the injunction will be heard. If the government ultimately fails to overturn Manson’s decision, it will leave the path clear for the patients’

constitutional challenge of the planned new system. As a result, the matter could be tied up in the courts for many months to come. The number of people authorized to possess - and frequently grow - marijuana under the old federal program climbed to 37,000 this year from fewer than 100 in 2001. Several patients permitted to cultivate their own pot - or serve as a designated grower for someone else argue the planned new system denies ill Canadians a safe, affordable supply of medical marijuana. Some say they can grow at home for pennies a gram, while official suppliers licensed by Health Canada charge anywhere from a discounted price of $3 a gram to as much as $13.50. Denying people the right to produce their own pot would violate their Charter of Rights guarantee of “security of the person,” the patients say. The government rejects the constitutional argument, saying the charter does not ensure the right to produce one’s own medication.

Pushback led to loss of Harper’s campaign man

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - A rare case of collective pushback from both caucus and grassroots party members forced Prime Minister Stephen Harper to cut loose his handpicked campaign point man. The Conservatives are scrambling to fill the party executive director post vacated Sunday by Dimitri Soudas. He left smack in the middle of candidate nominations for the 2015 election. It’s the latest departure of a key Harper confidant - Harper lost chief of staff Nigel

Wright to the Senate spending scandal last May. MPs and rankand-file Tories were unhappy and uncomfortable with what they saw unfolding around Soudas and his fiancee MP Eve Adams, both of whom inspire strong opinions within the party. There were mounting concerns that Soudas was using his position to help Adams secure a nomination in a newly created suburban Toronto riding, at the same time as the party was promising to show no favouritism to incumbent MPs.

The fact that the party’s pre-election strategy was leaked following a meeting in February was also a strike against Soudas. Sources say the situation became so uncomfortable that even Harper could no longer stand by Soudas, who worked for the PM, on-and-off, for a decade. Other candidates had been in the mix for the executive director’s job December, but Soudas won the day as Harper’s choice. “The impression was he was getting personally involved in

Ms. Adam’s efforts to get the nomination,” said Ontario MP David Tilson. “Particularly in his position, that’s inappropriate.” In one case, Soudas showed up at an Adams fundraiser held by an Oakville, Ont. financial planner, even though his contract specified he steer clear of the

nomination fight. A source also said there was evidence a door-to-door canvass for Adams had been organized from Soudas’s office at party headquarters. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

Land reserve divided, not conquered


ootenay Bill Bennett has done what I reported last November he was doing: seizing the horns of the sacred cow that is the Agricultural Land Reserve. Henceforth there shall be two land reserves. The Island, South Coast and Okanagan, which produce 85% of B.C.’s total farm revenue on 10% of protected land, retains its strict anti-development rules. In the much larger area Bennett likes to call “beyond Hope,” non-farm uses will be considered to help maintain the many economically marginal farmers. This is the Interior, Kootenay and North, where development pressure is mostly an urban myth. In remote areas, ALR diktats with no relation to reality are routinely ignored. Political critics were quick to call this a B.C. Liberal hidden agenda to pave the ALR for their

developer pals. Certainly neither party’s 2013 platform talked about the ALR, although B.C. Liberal leadership candidates Kevin Falcon and Mike de Jong promised relief from its more senseless bureaucracy to Peace country farmers in 2011. When the zone plan was revealed last week, media went to ALR pioneer Harold Steves, the hero of all Lower Mainlanders who try to tell northern farmers what to do. “My real fear is that they want to open the door for fracking and natural gas and oil,” Steves said. I’ve got bad news for the socialist sage of south Richmond. Oil and gas companies have operated on farmland since before the ALR was created in 1974. Conspiracy buffs should read the delegation agreement that took effect just weeks after last May’s election, giving the Oil and Gas Commission



authority to administer wells, pipelines and waste pits on farmland. If the ALR interferes with the prescribed handling of drilling waste, it interferes with safety measures. University of the Fraser Valley “food security” professor Lenore Newman went on CKNW to refute what she called “uninformed arguments,” and then offered one of her own. This two-zone change is connected to the exclusion of large tracts of Peace land for the Site C dam, she said. Actually, the government exempted that

project last December using the long-standing “provincial interest” provision, so this phase of the alleged capitalist plot against farmland has no effect on Site C. Steves is also concerned about second homes being built beyond Hope, and later sold rather than being destroyed as is the current disastrous rule. He warns that farmers might end up with “nonfarm neighbours,” or as we like to call them up north, “neighbours.” Again, this is an urban problem projected onto rural B.C., where costly restrictions mainly serve to accelerate the depopulation of rural and remote areas. Delta South independent MLA Vicki Huntington is livid about the legislation, which has no effect on loss of farmland in her constituency. The growing federally regulated port supersedes provincial laws, and the Tsawwassen First Nation is growing a

big shopping centre on its treaty land. Aboriginal entrepreneurs are also starting to force big-box development on southern Vancouver Island, home of the purest of the pure left. This is where farmers can’t even protect themselves against deer. The most damning charge is that the six regional ALR panels now in place are open to corruption under new rules. Panel members have always been cabinet appointments, but currently they have to be from outside the region so they are less likely to hand out exemptions to their friends. That is certainly something to keep an eye on. So is the status of B.C. farms, where the average farmer age is 56 and rising, and half of farms have income less than $10,000 a year. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Old Bridge should still be in open for walking

Comments in the March 26 paper (City one step closer to new foot bridge, Trail Times, March 26) says we are getting the new pipe bridge with our sidewalk bridge. Excellent. I also noted in the article that the sewer pipe on the bridge was repaired twice last year.

The repairs would require a truck and at least two people to do the repairs. Why are we not allowed to walk across the bridge on the as-new steel sidewalk? Who is supplying the reasoning and nobody else in City Hall objecting and letting us walk the bridge?

There must be at least three people in City Hall that know the sewer pipe is being repaired. A year and a half ago to go to the new one. Give us a break. It might even increase the attendance at the aquatic centre of the West Trail residents. John Carter Trail

The federal government has, at times, made consumers and taxpayers the policy priority, as when it dropped some tariffs on imports, most recently in the Canada-South Korea free trade agreement. But much more can be done here to favour the general interest. Government could end the “supply management” system for dairy and poultry products that benefits producers but harms consumers; it could end subsidies to business, an action which favours specific companies at the expense of competitors and taxpayers; it could reform compensation and pension in the government sector that produces pay, perks and pensions 12 per cent over the broad private sector. Sixth, be more transparent. The former finance minister spent $13.7 billion in taxpayer cash to bail out General Motors and Chrysler. He then falsely claimed Chrysler had paid back all the money (not true), and was never terribly open about the money flows. In contrast, the U.S. federal Treasury department reports monthly and on the web about their Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Ordinary taxpayers can see how much money was lent out to banks, automotive companies and others, and how much had been paid back. In Canada, the finance department under Flaherty produced no such clarity; quite the opposite. It is long overdue to produce a clearer accounting of all that stimulus money, as well as transparency in other government spending. Neutrality, smarter spending, broad-based tax relief instead of gimmicks, favouring consumers over producers, and transparency; that’s a legacy for which any new finance minister should aim. Mark Milke is a Senior Fellow at the Fraser Institute.

A flock of Greater Trail snowbirds gathered for an annual picnic in Palm Springs in March.


A Trail-Rossland picnic ... in Palm Springs BY PATTY CAPUTO RANDALL Special to the Times

PALM SPRINGS –When it comes to aging, a new mindset has taken over. And for proof, look no further than to the 60 or so retirees or soonto-be retirees who spent an afternoon in a Palm Springs park recently, eating spicy Italian sausage, playing bocce, and laughing over memories of growing up and living in the TrailRossland areas. The occasion? The ‘Annual TrailRossland Palm Springs’. With names like Bertuzzi, Maniago, Ferrey, Fabbro, Merlo, Aiken, Caputo, Zucolo, Valade, Keffer, Glanville, Thompson, Angerelli, Kempston, Matheson, Smith, Graceffo, Thomas, Valade, and Mondin, these long-

standing childhood friends and past neighbours confirm each year, what the Mayo Clinic research has been telling us, that strong friendships have a major impact on our health and well-being. Yes, all are now snowbirds from Vancouver, Trail, Rossland, Castlegar, Christina Lake; however for this extraordinary group, it is not only about escaping the winter weather, but also and more importantly, it is about reconnecting, on a regular basis. They are well aware that the focus of aging in today’s Canada is no longer about ‘growing older’, but ‘the amount of life we have yet to live’. On a sunny morning last week, 62 of the group met on a golf course

for their tee-times, they play three times a week together, from January to March, and finish the games with a few brews in the club lounge. Couples enjoy happy-hours and dinners in local restaurants and spontaneous get-togethers such as SuperBowl Sunday and evening-street and art festivals. Of course, conversations reflect everyone’s common experiences and inevitably touch on the Gulch, Crowe High, hockey, travel to Italy, the Colombo, food....or ‘do you remember...?’ The annual Trail-Rossland picnic closes the season and reminds everyone that growing up and living in the Trail-Rossland area has life-long benefits.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Elton John and his partner, Toronto-born David Furnish, are planning a low-profile wedding in May, following a change in British law allowing gay marriages. The two men, who have been in a civil partnership since 2005, have two children. In quotes released on NBC’s website Monday, the singer said: “We shouldn’t just say ‘Oh, well, we have a civil partnership, we’re not going to bother to get married’. We will get married.” Same-sex marriages were allowed for the first time in Britain Saturday, when a new marriage law came into effect.


Birthday skydive cancelled THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - Actress Shirley Jones is celebrating her 80th birthday on the ground, instead of skydiving as she had planned. A spokesman for “The Partridge Family” actress said Monday that Jones agreed to postpone the jump after her sons and grandchildren asked her to reconsider. Jones announced last week that she planned to celebrate her birthday by jumping from a plane for the first time, something she said she wanted to do all her life.

Smoke Eaters trade for Martin Hawks split KIJHL

Give up Knowler

in Kamloops

By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

The Trail Smoke Eaters had a productive weekend, wrapping up a promising Spring Camp on Sunday and completing a deal for Trail native Craig Martin from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Friday. Martin, 19, is on his way back to the Smoke Eaters after playing for Vernon and Alberni Valley the last two seasons. The former Beaver Valley Nitehawk was acquired as part of the Jan. 10 deal that involved the Smoke Eaters obtaining the playing rights of Jackson Elynuik from Alberni Valley for Jake Kauppila along with futures. It was the final piece of the futureconsiderations puzzle that would also see Castlegar native Jesse Knowler, Trail’s leading point scorer last season, sent to Alberni in exchange for Martin. Smokies coach Nick Deschenes said, “It was tough to give up someone like Knowler, but in deals like that you have to give up something to get something of value in return.” Martin played for the Smoke Eaters in 2011-12 as a 16-yearold affiliate player.

The Trail Smoke Eaters had an eventful weekend with its Spring Camp and 4-on-4 Bantam tournament, as well as making a deal for Trail native Craig Martin on Friday. nine games with the Smoke Eaters he had five goals and two assists. In Vernon, Martin tallied seven goals and nine assists in 37 games in an injury riddled 2012-13 season. He started the 201314 season with Vernon but was traded in October to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. He played nine games with Vernon scoring three goals and collecting four assists then completed the season with Alberni playing 41 games scoring 10 goals and adding 13 assists.

Martin has committed to the NCAA Div. 1 Quinnipiac Bobcats. As for the Camp, about 70 players from ages 16-19 were split into five teams for a weekend of scrimmages, while 50 Bantam age players were playing in a 4-on-4 tournament on the small ice. “I was happy with it,” said Deschenes. “For the first one, we had a lot of talented players . . . and there is a lot of up-and-coming local talent that will continue in the same way as the Scotty Davidson’s and Craig

Martins.” The Smoke Eaters have not yet announced any commitments, however, Deschenes says they are pursuing various players, but will have to wait and see what unfolds. Trail used a variety of KIJHL players as AP’s last year, such as the Nitehawks Sheldon Hubbard, Riley Brandt, and Braden Pears, Creston Valley’s Colby Livingstone, and Castlegar’s Seth Schmidt and Jared Marchi, and there is a good chance a few will be in the orange and

black next season. While relationships between the Smokies and certain KIJHL teams have not always been smooth as ice, Deschenes realizes that a good working relationship with all local Junior B teams is mutually beneficial in developing young players and improving both the BCHL and KIJHL teams. “We want to be kind of the United Nations of junior hockey,” said Deschenes. “Not just with Beaver Valley but with all the teams in the area.”

Trail Little League steps up to the plate

By Times Staff Trail Minor Baseball (TMB) Little League is in full swing on and off the field as players hit Andy Bilesky Park this weekend, and the league executive prepares to host the B.C. Minor Little League Baseball championship this summer. It’s going to be another big season for TMB players, coaches, parents, officials, and fans as Trail and Andy

Bilesky Park will be the site of the Little League 9-10 provincial championships July 12-19. It’s a big event that hosts seven teams from around B.C. and all their supporters, family, coaches, and staff. But in order for it to be the success the Little League Major provincial tournament was two years ago, the TMB Tournament Committee needs volunteers to help with

the planning and running the event, as well as local businesses to step up as sponsors to help raise funds. Tryouts for the Major and Minor provincial All-Star teams will go in June, but before all that, local players will begin development workouts this weekend. On Saturday TMB will host aspiring young ball players in a primer called Come-trybaseball camp at Andy Bilesky

Park going from noon-2 p.m. for ages 5-12. “It’s for kids that have never played before,” said TMB president Darren Miracle. On Monday and Tuesday at 4:30 p.m., the seven-tonine-year-old players hit the diamond on the small field, while the 10-12 year-old players will play on the big field for evaluation practices.

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks regained homeice advantage, after earning a split with the Kamloops Storm on the weekend at McArthur Park Arena in Kamloops and are back in B.V. for Game 3 last night and Game 4 tonight. Beaver Valley got over their opening-game jitters in a 4-2 loss against a relatively unknown Storm team on Friday, to skate to a convincing 6-2 victory Saturday. “I’m definitely happy with the split, but we didn’t play very well up until the second period of Game 2,” said Nitehawk coach Terry Jones. “We really started to get it going from there, but just didn’t put the 60 minutes that we needed to in Game 1.” In Game 2, the Nitehawks erupted for three goals in less than four minutes near the end of the second period to erase a 2-1 deficit and take a 4-2 lead into the third. Braden Fuller would net the winner at 1:36 taking a pass from Dallas Calvin and beating Storm goalie Wade Moyls to put the Hawks up 3-2. The victory was an improvement on an uninspired Game 1 effort, and Jones and the Hawks will look to bring that momentum into Games 3 and 4. “I thought we definitely learned something about them, but I think it was a big adjustment playing on the big ice surface, those things are important . . . but when it comes down to it it’s about winning battles and we just didn’t win the battles on Friday.” B.V.’s Riley Brandt gave the Hawks an early lead, but Kamloops would storm back with goals from Brock Balson and Daniel Buchanan 34 seconds apart midway through the period, but that would be the last time they held the lead. “We were just sloppy,” Storm coach Ed Patterson told the Kamloops This Week. “It was 2-1 and we turned it into a track meet. We were trading chances with an offensive team and that’s going to kill you no matter who you are.” Trailing 2-1 the Hawks turned it on in the second, firing 16 shots at Moyls before finally finding the equalizer with 4:22 left to play in the period when Dan Holland would net his first of two on the night. After Fuller’s goal, Calvin and Fuller would team up again 44 seconds later, with Calvin bulging the twine this time. The offensive outburst was typical of a Hawks team that has five players in the top 10 in playoff scoring including the top three in Edwards, Calvin, and Brandt. Kamloops, a team that scores by committee, has one player, Luke Gordon, in the top 10, currently in fifth spot with 11-10-21. “I just felt that in the second period we started to skate . . . After the first period I kind of gave it to the guys,” said Jones. “That first period wasn’t good enough, and we had to start winning our battles, and I felt like the guys started to push it up, and on the bench you could really tell.” See STORM, Page 12

baseball games at nearby Kin Race Park after practice during their RBC years in Vernon. They didn’t want the experience to end and now they’re done four extraordinary years with the University of Quinnipiac Bobcats near Hartford and are ready for pro hockey. For Viper captain Ryan Renz, a Castlegar native, reaching the post-season felt great. “It’s just about pride and being proud,” said Renz, before the playoff started. “After two seasons of not being in the playoffs, it starts to wear on a guy and a team. To get back in the hunt will give ourselves some more preparation and some games that mean something in the playoffs before we get to the RBC. That’s what we’re worried about now, is having a good run and not losing out early and having that time off.” The Vipers should survive this roundrobin format and move on to the championship series. And they will look back and see how they matured as a team by stopping the Warriors and then the first-place Penticton Vees.

However, before the ceremonial first pitch is thrown, TMB requires someone to take over the concession and run it for the season. “It’s quite a big undertaking . . . in the past we’ve had guys like Bob Moffat and Tracy Snary running the concession doing a great job, but all volunteer. But right now those people are gone and we need to fill those positions and hopefully someone steps up.” The concession has been a substantial fundraiser for the TMB over the years, and while it is a commitment, Miracle hopes someone with the time and ability will take over. “It’s a huge help and now we are just figuring out how much of a help it was,” said Miracle. The concession is open for three to five games per week, in addition to three tournament weekends and the 9-10 provincials. Early-bird registration for Trail Minor Baseball continues until Apr. 8, where parents can sign up their kids at a discounted fee. The final day for registration is Apr. 15.

Conference Semifinals (Best-of-7) EASTERN CONFERENCE

FROM PAGE 11 The Storm would make a goaltending change between periods, but the Hawks would keep the pressure on Kamloops and Holland and Edwards would round out the scoring in the third. The Kamloop’s coach was not happy with the performance of his team on Saturday, and will undoubtedly make adjustments in the games ahead. “I want us to

remember the beat down that we just took, but as soon as we walk out that door we’re moving on to Game 3,” Patterson said. Kamloops has gone undefeated in six road games during this season’s playoffs, but Beaver Valley will look to end that streak. “I expect them to be real tough tonight,” said Jones. “They know what’s at stake and they’re going to be looking to at least get

a split back. “They have a good hockey club, so they have a lot of veterans that know how to play so it’s not like we’re going to be at home, we’re going to win – we have to earn the victory.” Due to Trail Times printing deadlines, the score for Monday’s Game 3 was unavailable at press time, however, up-to-date scores can be accessed online at

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - CNN host Piers Morgan issued one last plea for U.S. gun control as he wrapped up his show’s three-year run. Morgan devoted the prime-time show’s final minutes Friday night to the issue that he said has been a “consistent and often very controversial” part of “Piers Morgan Live.” The British-born host cited gun violence statistics and expressed dismay that mass shootings including those at an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, and movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado, haven’t led to stricter laws. Morgan blamed politicians that he said had been bullied into “cowardly” silence by a gun lobby led by the National Rifle Association. A message seeking comment from the NRA was left at its headquarters on Friday.

BTO in joking mood after special honour THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG - The relationship between Bachman-Turner Overdrive’s four core members was once so frosty, the band couldn’t even agree long enough to be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. Well, that long-awaited honour finally came at Sunday’s Juno Awards in the group’s hometown of Winnipeg after an apparent thawing. Backstage afterwards, the band - whose 1974 lineup of guitar wizard Randy Bachman, powerhouse vocalist Fred Turner, drummer Robin (Robbie) Bachman and guitarist Blair Thornton was officially ushered into the hall - was in a joking mood. Even the Bachman brothers, who had not spoken since their father’s death prior to the gala (according to Randy), were riffing together when asked when the band might reunite next. “The Grey Cup’s here next November, 2015,” Randy offered. “The 80th anniversary of ‘Not Fragile,”’ Robin chimed in, referring to the band’s landmark 1974 record, before miming creeping along with a walker. “If you want to make an offer, the guy’s right there,” Randy added, motioning offstage to his manager. “Yeah, what are you asking us for?” Robin fired back. The hitmakers behind such hard-chugging cottage classics as “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” and “Takin’ Care of Business” had other clever one-liners loaded. Their collective relationship had been marred by decades of bickering over who had the rightful claim to the band’s name, and asked when they finally realized they could stand onstage together, Robin replied: “Noon.” Still, they at least made peace long enough to shake hands onstage, and that truce extended to their interviews afterwards. Particularly, Robin and brother Randy seemed to agree about most things on Sunday - including how the centrepiece induction felt. “A lot of stress,” Robin said. “I think I’ve (had) stage fright once, and that was tonight. It’s just a whole different experience really, to have that many people, you’re on a tight timetable, you’re live on TV.” Added Randy: “It’s fun now that it’s over.”

Trail Times Tuesday, April 1, 2014 A15


Dental offices are very clean, sanitary places Dear Annie: As a registered nurse and a patient who has had many dental procedures, I cringe every time I get into a dentist’s chair. The reason is the overhead light -- the one that the hygienist or dentist can adjust and lower. The hygienists and dentists wear gloves, but the gloves protect them, not the patient. They put their gloved hands in patients’ mouths and then reach up and adjust the light as needed, time after time. Their gloved hands transfer bacteria from a patient’s saliva (and sometimes blood) to the light fixture. Then the next patient gets in the chair, and the procedure is repeated. I don’t see how they can avoid transferring harmful bacteria and viruses from one patient to another unless they clean the light fixture off between every patient. I hope I’m wrong, but I have never seen or heard of

this being done. I learned sterile procedure in nursing school. If they teach sterile procedure to hygienists and dentists, they don’t seem to be using it in my dentist’s office. -- Nervous Patient Dear Nervous: Relax. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, working with the American Dental Association, has developed recommendations that say all surfaces, including the dental chair, dental light, instrument tray, drawer handles and countertops, should be cleaned and decontaminated. Some offices may cover this equipment

with protective covers, which are replaced after each patient. Nondisposable items like dental instruments are cleaned and sterilized between patients, while disposable dental instruments and needles are tossed along with disposable wear, such as gloves. It’s quite likely that your dentist is doing all of these things before you enter the room, and therefore, you don’t see it. If you have questions about infection control, talk to your dentist or check Dear Annie: A year ago, my husband’s grown daughter announced that she would be getting married this summer. Despite heated conversations, she decided to marry in her current city, saying that having her friends in attendance is more important than having her family there. Her father has always tried to stay involved in her life (to

the extent her mother would allow). So you can imagine his shock when he was told that she decided to have her stepfather walk her down the aisle for her big day. This has caused a huge rift in the family, and my husband feels the only way to save face is not to attend. Eager to avoid the expense of traveling and as a show of support, his extended family also decided not to attend. I fear that this may cause a permanent end to the father/daughter relationship. Is there any way for this to be resolved? -- Evil Stepmother Dear Stepmom: Did Mom pressure her daughter to have the stepfather walk her down the aisle? If so, the young woman may have felt obligated to comply, and Mom may be giddy at the thought that her ex-husband won’t be there. It’s also possible that the stepfather helped raise the girl and she wants to

honor him. We understand how much this hurts your husband, but we hope he can put aside his pride and be supportive of his daughter on her big day. He should talk directly to her and explain his hurt feelings. We hope she reconsiders.

Dear Annie: This is in response to “Uncomfortable,” the daughter-in-law who feels awkward calling her mother-in-law “Mom.” I have a wonderful daughter-in-law who calls me “Mil” or Millie. And when I text or phone, I call her Dil.

Those are our own personal nicknames, and they work for us. -- MIL Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please email your questions to

YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Wednesday, April 2, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You are calling the shots today because you feel rebellious. However, be careful. This is also an accidentprone day for you. Tread carefully. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Like Aries, you, too, feel rebellious, but in a quiet way. Something is seething within you, making you feel restless and impatient. Guard against accidents. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A friend will surprise you today by doing something you least expect. Some of you might meet a new friend who is unusual or bizarre (but exciting and different). CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Avoid confrontations with authority figures today, because their response will be quick and unexpected. You might get slapped down

so fast you won’t know what hit you. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) Travel plans will be canceled or rescheduled today. Surprise outcomes related to the law are likely. Something could happen that makes you want to break free or get out of town. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Stay in touch with your bank account, because something unexpected could take place. Be careful if you are taking care of someone else’s property or you are responsible for what is not yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Someone you know will throw you a curveball today, so be ready to dodge it. Surprises with partners and close friends are likely. In fact, an argument could break out. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your work routine will be interrupted by computer

crashes, staff shortages, power outages, equipment breakdowns or other unexpected events. Give yourself extra time for wiggle room. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Parents and people working with children should be aware that this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Be vigilant. Remove anything that is potentially hazardous.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Small appliances might break down today, or minor breakages could occur at home. Domestic quarrels suddenly might erupt. Wear water wings and stay away from the deep end. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an accident-prone day for your sign, so be careful. However, it also will be full of exciting changes with

new faces and new places. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Keep an eye on your money today, because you might find money or lose money. Similarly, something you own might be broken, lost or stolen. (Yikes!) YOU BORN TODAY You are gentle, childlike and idealistic. People respect you because you are honest, sincere and hardworking. Your dreams are important to you,









which is why you tend to see things in black-and-white terms. Fortunately, family grounds you, because you value family. This year you will work to build or construct something valuable for you. It’s a testing year and a year of growth. Birthdate of: Marvin Gaye, singer/songwriter; Sir Alec Guinness, actor; Emmylou Harris, singer. (c) 2014 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
