Hungry bears up and ready to feast on garbage Conservation officer warns tickets will be given to repeat offenders BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

The bears are waiting for residents to slip up with managing their attractants but they’re not the only ones with a keen eye on area garbage bins. Conservation officer Ben Beetlestone has given out a few warnings to Glenmerry residences with unsecured garbages, following complaints from neighbours. Changes to the Dangerous Wildlife Protection Order allows him to fine people without warning but since it’s early season he’s giving people the benefit of the doubt. “Basically they’ve had their only warning and we’re advised that in future we will be issuing a violation ticket,” he said. “Education is obviously a huge part of it but it doesn’t always work and sometimes hitting people in the pocketbook might be enough for them to say, ‘You know what I rather go throw a toonie in the community dumpster versus getting a $230 ticket or more (up to $585).’” A black bear with a limp has returned for more gar-

bage feasting in and around Glenmerry, said Beetlestone, who assured that he’s monitoring the animal. The bear hasn’t been aggressive but he’s definitely habituated to garbage so his days are likely limited. “Bears are led by their noses and they’re going to probably smell it but that’s all part of being bear aware and managing all those attractants, whether it’s a bird feeder, barbecue, feeding your animals outside or fruit trees,” he said. “If people are doing what they can and the bear is still that persistent, they’re not necessarily going to get fined but we’d have to deal with the bear still nonetheless.” He and fellow conservation officers have yet to destroy an animal this season in the Trail area and they’d like to keep it that way. Now that hibernation is seemingly over, he said it’s important for residents to do their part. The bears are also on the prowl in Rossland, where Rossland/Trail WildSafeBC community coordinator Sharon Wieder said she just scared one out of her yard. She was not surprised to see the furry beast on garbage day and managed to get rid of him by using a handmade rattle can shaker. See USING, Page 3

City of Trail set to roll out new float for Saturday’s parade BY ART HARRISON Times Staff

While the details of the latest parade float for the City of Trail are being kept behind a veil of secrecy typically reserved for military weaponry technology or royal births, city staff was willing to release enough information to tease any residents wondering what might be on display for the Firefighters Parade Saturday.

“The design is meant to be timeless in order to showcase the true essence, feel, and foundation of our great city,” Andrea Jolly, communications and event coordinator for the city said in an email. “The float will represent Trail as it tours around the province for years to come.” The design of the new creation is the work of Jolly and the team at

Across the Board Creations, a production company in Creston, which manufactures everything from movie and TV props to sculptures, industrial models, and museum exhibits. The total budget for the “float of mystery” was $70,000 The manufacturers worked from concept discussions with city staff, photos of the city, and even travelled

to Trail to try to get a feel that could be translated into the design. “From a technical standpoint the unit is 36 feet long in parade mode and has been outfitted with a high efficiency Yanmar engine,” Bryan Maloney, purchasing and mechanical superintendent for the city, said in an email. “The drive and hydraulics on the See BUSY, Page 3

Traffic flow Spring Thaw... changes for Town & Country downtown

A MOther’s moment

A drive into downtown Trail may look a little different come Tuesday when the city implements a four-way stop at the intersection of Bay Avenue and Farwell Street. Converting the traffic signal to a four-way stop at the busiest intersection downtown is to be done on a trial basis while the city does a traffic study to monitor the results and observe driver compliance, according to city engineering technician John Howes. “The peak hours are certainly stressful for anyone, but during some of those non-peak hours you're sitting there at a light and there is no a vehicle or a pedestrian in sight so hence the whole four-way stop,” he explained.“I use the Baker Street intersection in Nelson as a prime example of where a four-way stop works because that is a very busy intersection and once everyone knows the sequence, you know you yield to the person on the right, it's a 10-second stop.” A previous traffic study referenced in the Downtown Plan reviewed the options of converting the traffic signals in the downtown core into four-way stop controlled intersections. The two internal intersections of Bay/Farwell and Cedar/Farwell were evaluated to test the viability and the city decided to go forward with one temporary change at this time. Strategic lane markings, barriers and stop signs will be installed in all directions and in order to eliminate potential confusion, existing traffic heads will be bagged. The city has budgeted $30,000 for this project, which includes a detailed traffic engineer study. Trail plans on monitoring the traffic signal configuration over the next several months.

Summerland resident seeks Liberal nomination for new riding

Smoke causes concern

By Art Harrison Times Staff

In what could be shaping up as an interesting contest of would-be politicians, Summerland resident, Connie Denesiuk, became the fifth person, and first federal Liberal, to openly declare an intention to pursue a nomination to represent the newly formed South Okanagan-West Kootenay riding. Denesiuk, who has previously served as president of the B.C. School Trustees Association (BCSTA) and currently holds positions on a number of boards, said she has a history in the West Kootenay. “We love the Kootenay area, we chose it for our honey-

moon when we were married and spend a few days at Christina Lake every summer,” she said. “My husband’s family is in Greenwood and when I was the BCSTA president I attended meetings in Christina Lake and all up and down the Kootenays.” Although she claims to have a clear understanding of many of the concerns of people in the area from a provincial perspective, she acknowledges that dealing with matters on a federal level will require communicating with the residents. “I’m aware of some challenges faced by people in the area; the resource based economy and decreasing enrollment in the education sys-

tem,” Denesiuk said. “Federal issues can be quite different. What can we do at a federal level to improve the economy locally?” Although the first to declare interest in running for the Liberals, Denesiuk joins other hopefuls, former regional district director, Margaret Maximenko, of Christina Lake, and environmentalist Richard Cannings, of Penticton, who will be competing for the NDP nomination. Financial advisor, Stephen Hill, from Rossland, realtor, Marshall Neufeld of Penticton, and, as yet unofficially, Rick de Jong of West Kelowna

have expressed interest in the Conservative nomination. So far, the majority of those seeking nomination are from the Okanagan side of the riding with only Hill and Maximenko residing in the KootenayBoundary area. “I think everybody is looking at the Penticton riding and not necessarily looking at the whole riding,” said Hill. “It’s still very early on in the process though, this is the race to the race. At this point my race isn’t against the NDP, it’s against my competitors. This is where people have to ask, ‘What’s the quality of the candidate?’”

Busy summer for float

Art Harrison Photo

A minor process upset while cleaning coffee roasting equipment at the Trail Tea and Coffee Company sparked a flurry of 911 calls to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Fire and Rescue (KBRFR) service Wednesday afternoon. Terry Martin, KBRFR Regional Fire Chief said while the smoke created a sense of disaster, the owner had dealt with the issue by the time crews arrived. He added there was no fire damage or threat to any property.

FROM PAGE 1 unit are state of the art and the design of the frame is partially aluminum and aircraft components. Needless to say movie set art work and technology has gone into the build for this project as well.” After its inaugural run at Silver City Days it will be making the festival rounds of the area, as well as Alberta, and Washington State at the Creston Valley Blossom Festival, Beaver Valley May Days, Montrose Days, the Castlegar Sunfest, and the Calgary Stampede. The old float that is being replaced originally went into service in 2001 and saw considerable miles in its 13-year run but was at the point of being both dated design-wise and hard to maintain mechanically. Parade enthusiasts can watch for the new float near the front of the parade Saturday when the parade begins at 11 a.m.

Using garbage cans can be a deterrent FROM PAGE 1 Wieder is working on securing a bulk order of bear-resistant household bins for residents in the region to buy for a reduced rate but in the meantime is asking people to do what they can to reduce risk of habituating bears, which she said eventually leads to the animals being destroyed. “I strongly encourage everyone to put their bag in some kind of garbage can for pickup day and put it out as close as possible to pickup time,” she said. “Even if it is not bear proof, it will be a small deterrent and also keep other

animals out of the garbage like ravens, raccoons, coyotes and roaming dogs.” The Natural Control Alternatives dumpster is in Trail’s public works yard in Glenmerry for anyone to use when needed. The $2 donation for dumping covers the cost of emptying the dumpster. Users are reminded to not abuse the system by skipping out on the donation or leaving items outside the bin. Beetlestone recommends that composters don’t throw away meat products, lime it regularly and if it’s still attracting wildlife, cease it completely.

SOLD

Bear rattle can:

-Fill an empty aluminium can (pop or beer or similar in size) with small pebbles and tape the opening closed -When the bear shows up, shake the can vigorously and shout “Go away bear!” -If the bear still doesn’t move, throw the can as close to the bear while staying close to the door or window of the house

PUBLIC NOTICE

4-way Stop at Bay Avenue & Farwell Street May 8, 2014 This notice is to inform the public that the City of Trail will be implementing a 4-way Stop at the intersection of Bay Avenue and Farwell Street starting Tuesday, May 13th. Strategic lane markings, barriers and stop signs will be installed in all directions. This will create a 4-way Stop intersection for both vehicles and pedestrians. In order to eliminate potential confusion with the traffic signal configurations, the existing traffic light heads will be bagged. The City of Trail will monitor the effectiveness of the intersection over the next several months. Also, please note the dedicated right turn lane from Farwell Street onto Bay Avenue has been replaced with additional angle parking spaces. Please exercise caution and courtesy to vehicles and pedestrians. 4-Way Stop Rules & Reminders: • A 4-way Stop is when there are stop signs at all corners; • The first vehicle to arrive at the intersection and come to a complete stop should go first; • If two vehicles arrive at the same time, the one on the right should go first; • If two vehicles are facing each other and have arrived at the intersection at about the same time, the one making a left turn should yield to the one going straight through; • If there is any doubt who has the right-of-way, or if there is any chance of an accident, it’s always better to yield the right-of-way to the other person; • There is more info about 4-way Stops online at www.icbc.com Please contact the City of Trail at 250.364.0822 if you require any information about this project.

Marijuana, money make perfect combination for conference

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER It wasn’t the usual Vancouver gathering of pot enthusiasts - in fact not even a whiff of marijuana smoke could be detected at the GreenRush Financial Conference covering the budding business of ganja. Featured speakers from the govern-

ment to the banking industry were included in what was billed as Canada’s first medical marijuana, industrial hemp and alternative medicine investment conference. Brian O’Dea, an exhibitor with BC Chronic, a company that runs licensed medical grow operations, said the injec-

tion of money has made the biggest change to what could becoming a booming business. “Look around the room, I don’t see any hippies here. I see a couple of people with long hair, but I’m seeing mostly suits. What precipitates the change? Baksheesh, money,” he said

Nasty doctors forced to pay

THE CANADIAN PRESS NANAIMO, B.C. - Doctors treat the ill in Port Alberni but only the B.C. Supreme Court could cure the ill will that developed between several physicians in that Vancouver Island city. Three doctors in the city have each been ordered to pay $60,000 in damages to their colleague, Dr. Magdy Fouad, for a series of vicious, untrue accusations against him, including an unfounded claim of a serious criminal offence involving a patient.

In her recent ruling, Justice Deborah Kloegman finds Dr. Shane Longman, his wife, Dr. Elizabeth Hankins and fellow physician Dr. Akushla Wijay launched the campaign against Fouad shortly after he arrived at West Coast General Hospital in Port Alberni in 2009. Although Fouad had held senior positions at other Canadian hospitals, his judgement and competence were questioned from the start and the abuse did not end, despite being vindicated by several investigations. Each of the three defendants has been assessed $50,000 in general damages and a further $10,000 in aggravated damages, with Kloegman pointing to all three doctors snickering together at the start of the trial as just one expression of their malice and animosity toward Fouad. Fouad’s request for an injunction to halt further bullying tactics has been adjourned, with the court offering to reconsider if the trio resumes their defamatory ways.

Bear kills worker at oilsands site

THE CANADIAN PRESS FORT MCMURRAY, Alta. - A union official says a woman killed by a bear at one of Canada’s major oilsands sites was with several workers who tried to scare the animal away. The 36-year-old Suncor employee was an instrument technician, who was doing electrical work at a job site near Fort McMurray, Alta., when the bear attacked her Wednesday. “It was ... seven people that were working in a group area and she was attacked by this bear out of that group and dragged off,” Scott Doherty, a spokesman for Unifor,

told The Canadian Press on Thursday. “People tried to stop it and do everything they could. Obviously they are fairly horrified at what they saw and witnessed.” Doherty said the union does not believe the workers were carrying bear spray. He said they remained in the area until police and wildlife officers arrived. Another union official said the woman’s co-workers blasted air horns to scare the bear away, but to no effect. RCMP killed an adult black bear in the area and tests were being done to determine whether it is the same animal that

Newfoundland

Whale carcass towed away THE CANADIAN PRESS WOODY POINT, N.L. - A decaying blue whale has been towed to a small community in western Newfoundland where a team will begin stripping off its blubber before shipping it to a museum in Toronto. Mark Engstrom of the Royal Ontario Museum says a crew hauled the massive mammal behind a fishing trawler to Woody Point from Trout River Thursday. He says a group of about a dozen people will strip the corpse of all skin, blubber and skeletal muscles before taking the skeleton apart and loading it into a container to be transported to the museum. The group expects to have that work done within five days and will determine whether it will relocate another blue whale carcass to Woody Point from Rocky Harbour. The team plans to take both skeletons to the museum in an effort to preserve a record of the highly endangered species, which numbers only about 250 in the North Atlantic. The two blue whales were among nine killed by unusually thick sea ice this spring.

mauled the woman. Alberta occupational health and safety said companies that operate in the region have protocols to try to prevent such attacks. Doherty said there needs to be a full review of what happened. “We need to be part of the investigation and review what took place there,” he said. “If there needs to be a revision or some additional procedures and policies in place to ensure the safety of workers from wildlife attacks, we are definitely going to do that.” Black bears are common in Alberta and it’s the time of year when they come out of hibernation and look for food. Average adult males can weigh

as much as 200 kilograms. The animals have been a problem in northeastern Alberta in the past. In 2011, wildlife officers destroyed 145 black bears, including animals attracted to garbage near work camps. For the last few years an energy industry group has been holding an annual seminar on bear safety in Fort McMurray. The next “BearSmart” workshop is scheduled for June 4. It involves Alberta government bear experts and includes talks on the best way to prevent encounters between bears and people. People who have attended the meetings have included work camp managers and

officials with oilsands companies that operate in the area. An Alberta government document on bears says the animals are attracted to the smell of humanproduced garbage and other waste, including petroleum products. Suncor spokeswoman Sneh Seetal said it’s not known if there had been recent bear sightings before the attack. She said the company offers wildlife training to employees and was reminding people to be especially vigilant. “This is an absolutely tragic event,” Seetal said. The union said this is the third work fatality in four months at the Suncor site.

The halo effect brings joy on Mother’s Day

T

here is something to be said about that special bond between a mother and daughter, especially when it’s strengthened by 19 hours of back labour. There was no sleep for my husband Darren or my mom Marlene when overindulging on fair food at Silver City Days and watching Rise of the Planet of the Apes finally sent me into labour at this time two years ago. The maternity ward at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital was nice and quiet that Mother’s Day when I was dilated enough to claim my birthing place. Don’t worry; I’ll spare you the gory details in this recollection, which has been further masked with the “halo effect” – the reward and all-encompassing happiness of holding a healthy baby glossing over all other aspects of labour. I was in for the best Mother’s Day gift of all but word of a (FREE!) gift basket to the first baby born on

the hallmark occasion sent me further into labour. I can be ridiculous at the best of times, and in this unfamiliar situation I decided I was determined to win that prize. But next door, Rossland’s Heather Gauthier was steps ahead of me. Brayton Gauthier, son of Garnet and Heather Gauthier, arrived first that afternoon. Dr. Trudy Toews was the doctor on duty who brought their wee one into the world, just as she did for mom and dad about 30 years ago. “I think the first thing I said was ‘It’s a boy,’” recalls Gauthier. “Our families were all waiting in the waiting room so the doctor went to get them right away.” The element of surprise was about to strike next door, too, as the three of us waited for the new Rossi addition. It wasn’t until that evening however, that Lola came out sunny side up and straight into daddy’s arms with mid-

VALERIE

ROSSI

Mother’s Daze wife Jennifer Arnosti by his side. After going through labour, I wanted the mom next door to have the basket because I knew then what she had gone through. However, because I was a Trail resident at that time, we both ended up being honoured by the Eagles Ladies Auxiliary with a beautiful gift each: I received one from the Trail group while Heather took home a second from

Rossland. Congratulatory gifts or none, childbirth is tough; it is also, however, extraordinary in how it reveals the meaning of life and helps to strengthen relationships. Ever since that day I look at my mom with a whole new appreciation: “it’s your fault you brought me into this world” is now more like “oh wow, you brought me into this world.” Now as I await the arrival of my second child, the approaching days in which I navigate through life as a new mom with spit up on my shirt and three hours sleep is still somehow only a hazy memory. The reward of being a mom and watching my daughter grow before my eyes trumps all. At nearly two, Lola is stringing together little sentences, challenging me to dance offs and surprising me with her endless affection. I run into Heather more frequently now that I live in Rossland and I feel like

we have an understanding of one another that was formed that Mother’s Day – even an unspoken alliance of a sort. The last time I saw her confirmed that we were both onto baby No. 2 with due dates only five days apart. My mom is now preparing for another warrior princess experience. The fact that she still loves me after late pregnancy hormones have taken over any semblance of rational thought amazes me. Although Mother’s Day can be just another card or bouquet of flowers, it’s nice to stop and remember how much you’ve put your dear mom through; after all, consider that she’s a victim of that same halo effect and consequently very likely holds you, her darling child, on a pedestal above all. Valerie Rossi is a reporter with the Trail Times, mother of Lola and expecting her second child right around Father’s Day.

for farmers. In other countries, such policies are seen as normal and legitimate political tools in the competition for votes. They have outraged the prosperous middle-class in Bangkok and the south, who were accustomed to having the government devote most of its time and money to their own needs, but they have delivered five election victories in a row for the Pheu Thai party and its predecessors in a country where the majority of voters are still poor farmers. The PDRC’s solution is to prevent any more elections until an unelected People’s Council, made up of “good people” chosen by the elite institutions that support the opposition, can “reform” the political system by excluding voters who are poorly educated or simply poor. Then the conservative opposition parties would finally be able to win elections. Relying on their allies in the judiciary and the various official commissions to prevent elections or set their results aside has served the right-wing parties well since the original military coup that overthrew Thaksin Shinawatra in 2006. In the last four months, however, they have returned to the streets in Bangkok, and their next step may be to ask the army for another coup. That is the only thing that could give them their cherished “People’s Council” and the disenfranchisement of a substantial part of the electorate. All their street demonstrations and legal obstructionism are ultimately intended to create a political paralysis that will provide the pretext for such a coup, and they are now probably quite close to achieving that goal. The only little problem is that a whole generation of Thais has now grown up to expect that they will have a political voice in the government of their country. Another coup, in these circumstances, could well be the trigger for civil war. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

PEOPLE OBITUARIES DAVIES (NEE NORDLUND), MAY ILENE – May 23, 1922 – April 26, 2014 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of May Ilene Davies (nee Nordlund) on April 26 at Langley Memorial Hospital. May was born in New Norway, Alberta on May 23, 1922. In 1925 she moved to Kimberley, B.C. After graduation from high school, May attended Pittman Business School in Vancouver, returning to Kimberley to work as a cashier at the Bank of Montreal. In 1944 she married Ken. After the birth of their first child in 1947, May’s priority became one of being a mom. In 1971 May and Ken moved to Trail where they resided for 36 years before moving to Langley, B.C to be closer to their children and grandchildren. An avid gardener, knitter, pianist, bridge player and crossworder, May also enjoyed her sports – bowling, badminton and golf. A lifetime member of United Church Women (U.C.W.), May was active in Trail United Church and sang in the choir. Another passion was the Hospital Auxiliary where she worked tirelessly wrapping bandages for use in the hospital. May’s greatest joy was her family. She was predeceased by her husband of 64 years, Ken, in 2008. May will be lovingly remembered by her children Leiana Wilson (Craig), Rob-

ert (Karen), Colin (Sharon) and Ilene Dyck (Andrew), her grandchildren Megan (Graham), Aaron (Katrina), Brittany, Jessy, Courtney, Bronwyn, Tanner, Marissa and Kelsey; greatgrandsons Braden, Owen and Mitchell; brother Lloyd Nordlund and brother-in-law Alec Frame and numerous nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held on Friday May 23 at 1:00pm at Henderson’s Langley Funeral Home, 20786 Fraser Highway, Langley, B.C. A remembrance will also take place in Trail, B.C. in June. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or the charity of your choice.

Georgetti out as CLC leader

THE CANADIAN PRESS MONTREAL - The Canadian Labour Congress elected a new president for the first time in 15 years at its convention in Montreal on Thursday. Hassan Yussuff defeated incumbent Ken Georgetti by 40 votes -2,318 compared with 2,278 for Georgetti. There were 29 spoiled ballots in the hotly contested election. Georgetti, who was born in Trail, was first elected in 1999 and went on to become the

labour group’s longest-serving president. Yussuff was the CLC’s secretary-treasurer and had held the position since 2002. The labour organization said on its website that Yussuff was also the first person of colour to be elected to an executive position. That happened in 1999 when he was elected an executive vice-president. In the past, Yussuff, who was born in Guyana, South America, also co-chaired the CLC’s

human rights committee. Barb Byers was elected to replace Yussuff as secretarytreasurer. She defeated Nathalie Stringer. Byers, who’s from Saskatchewan, was previously one of two vice-presidents. The Canadian Labour Congress, which represents 3.3 million workers, brings together national and international unions as well as provincial and territorial federations of labour and 111 district labour councils.

The type, frequency and dose need to be appropriate for someone’s age, health and condition. “Find ways to exercise that don’t exacerbate the pain,” Cheville said. Climbing stairs might hurt but cycling or water exercise may not. Physical therapy to strengthen certain muscle groups can help, and can even delay a knee or hip replacement for years, she said. HOW MUCH SHOULD I DO? Start light and gradually build up to at least 30 minutes of activity on most days of the week. This could be several 10-minute sessions throughout the day.

More studies needed for local fisheries Trophy rainbows threatened? By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

Area fishermen look forward to spring as the weather warms and diverse hatches of insects emerge on local rivers and lakes, however, concerns over the health of Kootenay Lake and the Columbia River systems has tempered that excitement with concern. Kootenay Lake anglers had cause for alarm when it was reported that 80 per cent of the fall run of kokanee salmon at Meadow Creek contracted the infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus or IHNV. In addition to the kokanee at Meadow Creek, tests also showed kokanee salmon at Red Fish Creek and the Lardeau River to be infected with the virus, in what was the lowest return of kokanee (about 200,000) to the main lake since the 1960s. “Kokanee numbers are on their way down from a peak of – 2011 was 1.7 million kokanee in that escapement estimate, so that’s the number of fish that went to spawn,” said MFLNR Kootenay fisheries biologist Matt Neufeld. “And that’s pretty high, if you look back into the historical records.” Yet, it is unknown whether the decline in kokanee numbers is attributable to the virus or an abundance of predators like bull trout and Gerrard rainbows, or a combination of factors. “We don’t know what is driving that for sure,” said Neufeld. “There’s probably several plausible explanations for what’s going on with kokanee numbers. One is that there is lots of Gerrards, or there have been anyways.” May 2012 saw one of the largest return of Gerrards to the Lardeau River with a day’s peak of over 1,000 fish. The Gerrard spawning count has seen an “unprecedented increase” in the past 10 years. Before 2011 the highest Gerrard count was about 600 with a low of about 200 in 2001. It set new highs every year since. “That’s what I’m getting at,” said Neufeld. “Gerrard numbers may be driving kokanee down as we’ve kind of seen this really big peak outside of recorded history.” The fisheries biologists estimates that if there are 10,000 rainbow and bull trout in the lake and each one feasts on one kokanee per day, that’s 365,000 kokanee per year, a pretty significant dent in the

Smokies sign Ice prospect

By Times Staff The Trail Smoke Eaters continue to build, as the team received a commitment from Robbie Johnson from the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy (POE) Midget U-18 team on Tuesday. Johnson produced 11 points, posting seven goals and four assists in just 15 games in the Canadian Sport School Hockey League’s (CSSHL) Prep Division this past season. In 14 North American Prospect Hockey League (NAPHL) games he recorded a goal and three assists for four points and 16 penalty minutes. Johnson, who will be 16 in July, is a draft pick of the Kootenay Ice in the Western Hockey League (WHL). The five-foot-11-inch and 175 pound Kamloops native missed the first half of the year due to an injury at Kootenay Ice training camp. “The work Robbie has put in this year to develop himself into a BCHL player as a 16 year old has been tremendous,” states Ryan Wade, head coach of the POE U-18 team. “Starting the year with an injury is always tough, but he put the work in and got the result he wanted by committing to Trail for the upcoming season.” The speedy, hardworking, skilled forward came on in the latter half of the year and was a pleasant surprise for Head Coach Nick Deschenes of the Smoke Eaters at their annual spring camp in March. “Robbie came to our camp and was one of the most dominant forwards,” said Deschenes “What surprised us the most was his age. He has a bright future as a hockey player and after speaking with him and his family, we got a better understanding of his goals to receive a scholarship and play NCAA. These fall in line with our priorities here in Trail so we are very excited to be a part of Robbie’s journey and development.”

World Championships rife with BCHL players

BCHL Roster announcements continue to roll in with the 2014 IIHF Hockey World Championships set to begin Friday in Minsk, Belarus and BCHL names continue to surface. Former Trail Smoke Eater defenceman Danny DeKeyser of the Detroit Red Wings will lace up the skates for the United States. DeKeyser scored eight goals and 17 assists in the 2008-09 season with Trail before going to the United States Hockey League and then Western Michigan University. Former Burnaby Express star and 2006 RBC Cup national champion Kyle Turris of the Ottawa Senators was named to the team early on. Hockey Canada announced Thursday that he would also take on an alternate captain role, joining the leadership group with captain Kevin Bieksa and fellow alternate Jason Chimera. Turris scored 102 goals and 91 assists in 110 career BCHL games with the Express before becoming the third overall selection by Phoenix at the 2007 NHL Entry Draft. He was BCHL rookie of the year in 2006 and MVP in 2007. Defenceman Jason Garrison, a Nanaimo Clippers alumnus and current Vancouver Canucks blueliner, will also wear the Maple Leaf. Garrison had 29 goals and 60 assists in 109 career BCHL games and won the BCHL Top Defenceman award in 2005. Canada starts the tournament off against France on Friday in a 6:45 a.m. PST start. The U.S. gets going at 10:45 a.m. against Belarus.

Pike still a concern on Columbia

FROM PAGE 10 “Those (pike) numbers have been kind of increasing over the last five or six years in that program, and so the indications are that pike are there and there’s probably quite a number of them, but we just haven’t done quite enough work there to know for sure what’s going on.” The apex predator also brings disease concerns, and while the rainbow trout population is apparently robust at the moment, the pike’s long-term affect on the ecosystem is troubling. “We don’t know what they’re eating yet, but there is scientific literature that suggests they prefer soft bodied prey like rainbows or kokanee over perch or other fish, so the jury’s still out on how big an impact they will have in the long run, but there certainly are some concerns.” The Pike Reward Program expired at the end of March, and fisheries is still considering how best to attack and eradicate the invasive species. Until then, Neufeld reminds anglers that there is an unlimited quota on pike, and he encourages fishers to retain all pike caught in the system.

event area could be mitigated by shorter walk distances and perhaps an East-West shuttle bus circulating through the area. Without it, or some other cross river alternative route, at least a few people are being discouraged from attending, or staying around for long, reducing, I am sure participation in the various activities offered. No matter how popular some of those activities are or become, the lack of parking and an alternate avenue of access will always limit participation in downtown events, especially including Silver City Days. The same limitations almost ensure that event cannot grow, no matter how enthusiastically the volunteers design and promote it. Limited as it is, as it probably will always be, and despite the annual SSCDSWF, Silver City Days has a lots to offer, fosters civic and even regional pride and allows local organizations to both promote their causes/ events and fundraise. You should go, and take some friends.

Through faith we have eternal life Scripture quotations are from the RSV unless otherwise noted. “Then they said to him, ‘What must we do, to be doing the works of God?’ Jesus answered them, ‘This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent’” (John 6:28-29). Only one work is necessary for salvation, and that is to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent” (John 6:29). But for this faith to save us we not only need to believe that this is true, but we must also entrust ourselves completely to Christ for our salvation. We have to depend on him to save us from our sins and death and give us light and eternal life. Actually, faith is not really a work at all that merits our salvation and the gift of light and eternal life, but rather it is simply our act of receiving this gift. St. Paul contrasts faith and works, saying that God saves us by Christ’s work on the cross through our faith, without any work of our own (Rom. 3:20, 28; Gal. 2:16; 3:11; Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5). The one who does the work to save us is Christ. The work he did was to suffer and die as a criminal punished on the cross, not for his own sins, but for ours (Isa. 53:5-6; 2 Cor. 5:21; Gal. 3:13). His work was, by his

suffering and death on the cross, to make reparation for our sins that satisfied divine justice and so made atonement for us, redeeming us from our sins and giving us light and eternal life, when we believe in him. This is why Jesus tells us today that the only thing that we have to do to be saved is to believe in him (Eph. 2:8-9; Titus 3:5). To be forgiven, brought into the light, and given eternal life we do not have to do anything else (Rom. 10:9-10), because Jesus came to call and justify sinners, those who have no good works, not the righteous (Matt. 9:13; Luke 18:13-14). So we are justified only by faith, without works (Rom. 3:28; Gal. 2:16). Works then follow after we are forgiven, saved, and justified; and they sanctify us still more. “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Through faith we are saved, given Christ’s light, and eternal life, because of Christ’s atoning work that our faith activates for us. It is necessary to know and believe this in order to have life in his name (John 3:36). This is God’s will and plan for us. We know this, because it is revealed in the Scriptures.

“He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God” (John 3:18; see Mark 16:16). This is the way of salvation that has been revealed to us. Christ came to save us by his death and resurrection. Those who believe in him, depending on him for their salvation, will be saved, justified, and forgiven only by their faith, without any work of their own. Our works always come after being saved, justified, and forgiven. The only thing that we do before this to be saved is to believe in and entrust ourselves in faith to the saving work of Christ on the cross. This is why Jesus says today that what we have to do to receive all this is believe in the one whom God has sent (John 6:29). Then our sins are forgiven, when we confess them (1 John 1:9), and we are redeemed and saved. Christ came into the world for this: to redeem us, to reconcile us with God, and to make us righteous, filled with his light, and possessing eternal life. This is the very heart of the Christian faith. © Copyright 2007-2009 Rev. Steven Scherrer www.DailyBiblicalSermons.com.

We learn to be racist

J

ust who was Jesus? It’s a question that commands a lot of attention, and engenders a heated debate. While I have read scholarly books on the question, I rather like a comedic set of arguments that attempts to define Jesus in terms of racial stereotypes. Whether you believe in Jesus or not, these arguments challenge us to see an image of divinity in all people, and to acknowledge, respect and cherish the innate dignity of others. Quoting from these anonymous arguments, Jesus was black because he called everyone brother; he liked Gospel; and, he couldn’t get a fair trial. But, there are three louise equally good arguments that he was aboriginal: he was at peace with nature; he ate a lot fish; and, he Everyday Theology talked about the Great Spirit. Then again, there are three equally good arguments that he was Italian: he talked with his hands; he had wine with his meals; and, he used olive oil. Two recent incidents of racism in sport - the offensive comments of Los Angeles Clippers’ owner, Donald Sterling, and an alarming number of racist tweets against PK Sabban of the Montreal Canadiens - provide striking examples of the inability of some people to accept others who differ from themselves. While these incidents have sparked discussion about racism in pro-sports, racism is definitely not limited to the sporting arena. Consider the legacy of Indian residential schools in Canada. The very creation of the residential school system was an expression of the concept ‘the white man’s burden’, which held that the white man was a superior being responsible for the management of non-whites. All too frequently, this attitude of racial superiority resulted in terrible abuses. We are not born racist. We learn to be racist. Growing up in the late 1960’s, I had an early lesson in the perpetuation of racism. My older sisters were members of “Up with People”, a movement that promoted racial equality through music. When a visiting choir from the States came to perform, some people were reluctant to billet black teens, which was strangely ironic. My mother was indignant that race was an issue in placing these kids, and volunteered to take two black billets. That night at the supper table, we talked about prejudice, including prejudice against Italians, and the derogatory term “wop” that angered my Italian father and grandfather. We did not talk about the prejudice against aboriginal people; while Canadians watched the civil rights movement unfold to the south, the majority of us were oblivious to the systemic racism in our own country. That conversation left an indelible impression on my developing sense of morality. The message was clear. People are people; we are sisters and brothers of one human family. While my parents used the moment of welcoming two billets into our home to instill respect for the “other” in their daughters, I could have learned a very different lesson had I been sitting somewhere else, like in a hockey arena, listening to adults around me jeer at a skilled NHL player for being black. So, just who was Jesus? He is any person who is marginalized, ridiculed or abused. Trail, BC resident Louise McEwan is a freelance religion writer with degrees in English and Theology.

Encourage grandson to take active role in child’s life Mailbox

years. It’s a little late to be worried about his influence on her or how they have raised their mostly-grown children. Might your grandson marry this girl? Will he at least help raise the child and pay support? (He is legally liable for that.) Please don’t use this moment to chastise your daughter or Pete. It won’t do any good and could damage the relationship you have. Instead, encourage your grandson to take an active role in his child’s life. You could help the young couple financially if you like, and we hope you will welcome your greatgrandchild. Stay out of

resting so they are satisfied with the arrangements. Also, they should have immediate funds at their disposal to deal with the costs. The way it stands now, I would be responsible for everything. It hurts me deeply that he will not see how valuable preplanning is in preventing family squabbles. I will let him read your response. -Wife Left Up in the Air Dear Wife: Some people have a difficult time planning for their eventual demise. They fear doing so will hasten their death. Others find it too distasteful, and they procrastinate. But you are right: It saves the survivors a great deal of stress and aggravation to know that things are taken care of. We suggest you talk to your husband’s children about this and see whether they can get their father to help them out. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Only Child in Massachusetts,”

the woman who loved being an only child, and I have to say it hasn’t been pleasant for me. There were some good things, like not having to share with anyone and having your parents to yourself. But when my parents passed away, I had to

lean heavily on my husband, who was wonderful. When I married, I told my husband I wanted to have more than one child. Now my husband is gone, and my children are busy with their own lives. They miss having cous-

ins, aunts and uncles, and I would give anything to have a sibling to talk to. -- Thankful for My Family Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

We keep our assets separate so as to provide for our individual families when we are deceased. Here is the problem: preplanning. I have arranged to have a small insurance policy to pay for my funeral expenses when the time comes. I also have written out specific instructions for my sons regarding my funeral, burial, etc. There would be no decisions left for them to deal with while they are grieving. However, I cannot get my husband to do the same. He has not earmarked any special funds for his funeral, nor has he any instructions for his children to follow. He won’t even talk about it. This is so unfair, not only to them, but also to me. I would like his children to take care of the details for his final

Dear Annie: I’m starting to wonder about my son-in-law, “Pete.” He married my daughter some 40 years ago when he was fresh out of the Navy. I was concerned that they had no savings and he had no job training. But he was quiet and likable. Through the years, however, people I respect have called Pete “no good,” “a bum,” “lazy” and “a snake in the grass.” My daughter and grandsons worked and sacrificed to put Pete through college. One of their boys recently got his girlfriend pregnant, and neither Pete nor my daughter did anything to help that girl. I gave them $500 for a blood test, but they didn’t follow through. I am worried about Pete’s integrity, but also about that of my daughter, who is not doing the right thing.

YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Saturday, May 10, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel broke today. (Join the club, we number millions.) Your financial plans seem to meet with obstacles. It’s best to wait for another day. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might feel lonely or cut off from others today. However, it’s possible that the fences you erect to protect yourself actually put you in a prison. Might this be the case? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) If you feel discouraged today, fear not; millions of others feel the same way right now. Today things seem worse than they really are. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Someone older might rain on your parade today. You might have plans to work with a group or network to help others; nevertheless, something or someone

stands in your way. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You might encounter difficulty dealing with authority figures today. Therefore, if you have to propose something or ask for permission, wait a few days. Timing is everything. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Travel plans might be challenged, as well as school plans. Just cope as best you can, because you can’t push the river. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You might be disappointed in your fair share of something or feel that you are not truly acknowledged, especially financially. This is a poor day to try to make good financial arrangements. Wait a few days. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might feel like there is a gulf between you and someone close to you. Actually, there is always a gulf, isn’t

there? What is different today is your frame of mind. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Things at work are discouraging because someone older or more experienced will not cooperate with you. Best to bide your time and make your pitch another day. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) You might feel that children are a heavy responsibility today. And indeed, they are.

We were heavy responsibilities for our parents as well. It goes with the territory. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) An older relative might block your plans or criticize your suggestions today. Of course this is discouraging, but don’t let this hold you down. Wait a day or two. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) You might fall into worry mode today. Remember:

“Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.” YOU BORN TODAY You are active, bold and daring! Although you can work with others, you also work superbly on your own. If you teach, you teach by example. This is a year of growth for you, and it is also a testing year. Many of you will build or construct something that you will later value. Postpone major changes this year -- not just yet.
