Warfield meets with city to talk recreation

MLA speaks out against ALR changes Conroy wants more debate on Agricultural Land Reserve BY ART HARRISON Times Staff

Citing lack of public consultation, Kootenay West MLA, Katrine Conroy, presented a motion to refer the government’s proposed Bill 24, altering the existing Agricultural Land Reserve. “I’m introducing a motion to refer the matter to the Select Committee, that will give us a chance to debate the motion and why it should go back to the drawing board,” said told the Times from Victoria Wednesday. Bill 24, the Agricultural Land

Reserve (ALR) Act, would divide the province into two zones. The Lower Mainland and Okanagan would retain the regulations and restrictions of the original ALR act and the rest of the province, including the Kootenays, would have relaxed regulations allowing property owners to have land removed from the ALR more easily allowing for resource and real estate development on lands once reserved for food production. “Everybody should be asking Bill Bennett (Liberal MLA for Kootenay East) what his agenda is,” Conroy said, “I can’t get an answer. So many people are saying, ‘Don’t do this,’ many of the

people they had said supported it.” In recent years the terms “100mile diet” and “eat local” have become increasingly popular with an increasingly large portion of the population who are trying to encourage healthier eating that doesn’t involve food that was harvested months ago and shipped sometimes thousands of miles before arriving at your local super market. Farmers’ markets are becoming a fixture in cities and towns around Kootenays, many of them featuring fresh fruits and veggies produced by farmers and orchardists who work land within a few miles of the markets.

Flexibility is the name of the game as bargaining talks continue between Warfield and Trail, according to the village’s mayor. Both sides met Tuesday morning to resume negotiations following Warfield council’s decision not to renew a five-year recreational and library services agreement with Trail. This time around, Warfield is looking for some leeway in Trail’s cost sharing “formula” that determines how much the village has to pay the city so its citizens can access Silver City facilities and the Trail and District Public Library through the Trail Resident Program (TRP). Since disbanding the TRP agreement, Warfield residents have been subject to a dual rate system that has them paying double the fees to use the city’s sports facilities and library. “What I can say is that we had an open discussion about a bunch of items,” Warfield Mayor Bert Crockett told the Trail Times Wednesday morning. “Talks will be ongoing but as long as there is a set formula in place it’s hard to get into any form of negotiation.” After 12 years in politics the village mayor said it’s time to end the long standing animosity between local municipalities about what is fair to pay for recreational services. “I’ve had enough of it,” said Crockett. “I think we’ve all had, and I think the formula seems to be where everyone has run amok.” All affected communities need to come together and decide on a voluntary contribution, he continued. “This issue will always rear its ugly head until we get together and decide how much to contribute voluntarily. Then we’ll pay it, and that’s it.” After meeting with Crockett and the four village councillors, Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs is hopeful for a resolution and confirmed a follow up meeting with Warfield is scheduled for next week. “We had a good meeting,” said Bogs. “And we look forward to talking with them again.” Since organizing its own reimbursement program, Warfield has paid out about $9,300 to village residents to cover library cards and sports passes, noted Vince Morelli, Warfield’s chief administrative officer. “It seems to be working,” he said. “There’s been no major hiccups and we try to help people with financial difficulty.” The decision to no longer cost share with the city under the TRP was made during an incamera council meeting in March, leaving the city on the hook to cover the loss of Warfield’s $74,500 towards recreation and $32,500 annual payment toward library services.

As with all things CRA, ensure a clear paper trail. Have a signed offer of employment with job description including remuneration especially if commissions or bonuses are paid, record hours worked, and use business cheques for payment do not pay cash. Pay on a regular and timely basis CRA is reluctant to accept an annual pay period. Since the family member is on the business payroll, source deductions must be withheld and remitted to CRA. This includes Employment Insurance (EI) premiums, but unfortunately the rules surrounding non-arms length employees and an application for EI are restrictive, to put it mildly. To increase the odds of success, follow the recommendations mentioned. Now, what about family dynamics? The decision on rate of pay creates an interesting conundrum and tends to be the one issue that festers and can blow up for the family.

Pay too much and you might actually imprison the family member because it will cost them too much to change employers. And what if one day you decide to cut wages? Or release the family member? What will be the family consequences? Conversely, if you under pay a family member, what will be consequences if resentment develops? To state the obvious, regardless of CRA rules, pay a family member a fair market wage rate and, if appropriate, offer personal performance and business profitability incentives. This will provide a level playing field for all employees, family or otherwise, and reward those who deserve it based on effort and outcomes.

FROM PAGE 1 But a recent push by the provincial government to re-write the act that protects farmland in the province, largely promoted by Bennett, could potentially affect the areas in which food is produced. Conroy said that the B.C. Agriculture Council, which represents 14,000 farmers and ranchers in the province, as well as the Certified Organic Associations of B.C., numerous regional districts and representatives of the Peace region have all voiced their objections to the proposed changes. “Who is going to benefit from this? Certainly not farmers,” Conroy said. “Developers and people who want to flip property, that’s who would benefit. This was a push without proper consultation and I believe the majority of people are opposed.” The ALR was created in 1973 by the NDP government at the time, to identify arable land in B.C. and created an administrative board, the Agricultural Land Commission, to oversee and protect it.

the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) from 1972 to 1978 drawing the boundaries for the ALR and has been following the work of the ALC since then. She was elected as MLA for the riding of Burnaby-Willingdon for the NDP and served from 1991 to 2001, also serving as Speaker of the Legislative Assembly from 1992 to 1994 and Minister of Environment, Land and Parks from 1999 to 2000. “I’ve been following this for 40 years never have I seen such welcome opposition to a bill as this one,” she said from the Lower Mainland. “This bill has nothing to do with protecting agricultural land. They either don’t understand the impact of what they’re proposing or they are trying to destroy the ALR. “The ALR has preserved the option to grow our own food and for British Columbians the ALR has been part of our psyche. We don’t have much agricultural land and when you look at what places like California are going through with the drought for a province to throw away protection for scarce farmland, it is

just so short-sighted.” Others closer to home involved in local food production are also questioning the wisdom of the bill. “I can see both sides of this,” said Rachael Roussin, a local food activist from Rossland. “It is hard because farmers in this region struggle, the price for food is so low, if farmers could do more on their land to make money I can see how that would be attractive. “But I’m more concerned about future resiliency. Once you change it, take land out of food production, you can’t go back

in time. It’s short-term gain versus long-term resiliency. There may come a time in the future when we need to produce more food in B.C.” At press time, Conroy, who actually lives on ALR land and is a cattle rancher, was waiting to speak against Bill 24 in the legislature, and is determined to do all she can to prevent the bill’s passing. “It’ll be a sad day in the Legislature if this passes,” she said. “I need to hear from people; email, letters, call my constituency office. I just hope common sense prevails.”

Another court delay for alleged robber The Nelson Star There’s another court delay for the man accused in two Nelson armed robberies. Andrew Stevenson was expected in Nelson provincial court Monday for a bail hearing, but his lawyer, Ken Wyllie, was ill. Another lawyer was expected to ask for an adjournment to June 10 on his behalf. Stevenson faces 15 counts including unlawfully discharging a firearm, robbery, and break and enter. He was injured prior to being taken into custody and at a previous court date, Wyllie indicated Stevenson is on crutches. His co-accused, Kristi Kalmikoff, was released on $40,000 bail. Both are charged in the hold-ups of Kootenay Currency Exchange on April 13 and the Nelson and District Credit Union on April 25 and breakins in Castlegar on April 18.

A perfect storm of sorts on the BC Ferries system is costing Prince Rupert businesses thousands of dollars, but this one has nothing to do with the seas of Hecate Strait. The combination of a major paving project between Masset and Port Clements and service reductions that took effect on April 28 has meant those wanting to ship goods to Haida Gwaii often find themselves without space on the ship. Darin Gunette of BC Ferries confirmed that Adventure Paving, the company undertaking the paving job, has taken the majority of commercial reservations between May and the end of June to accommodate the movement of machinery to and from the island. “We didn’t know it was coming until they started calling to make reservations,” he said. “A lot of other commercial traffic is being put on standby. We have had up to 40 vehicles per day on the waiting list ... it’s a big project, one that only happens once in a very long time.” That has meant the flow of goods from Prince Rupert to Haida Gwaii is anything but a certainty. One business that has felt the impact of being unable to make a

reservation between now and July is Tyee Building Supplies. “We had an order come in for a Haida Gwaii customer that was about $7,500. We had it pulled and ready to go, but there was no certainty we could get it on the ferry until the end of next month ... there is the possibility of cancellations or space being available, but that was too much of an uncertainty and the customer pulled the order,” said manager Sharon Rothwell, adding she feels the ferry system should be treated no differently than the highway system. Another business feeling the pinch is Bandstra Transportation, which regularly takes a variety of goods to the island. “We have one trailer of food and one trailer of Canada Post that is certain to go over and that is all we can do ... we are contractually obligated to send Canada Post to the island, so we can’t put that off if we need to take more food,” said manager Chris Bromley, noting it is not usually an issue getting an extra trailer on board. “It’s absolutely chaotic. We have trailer loads of cargo that aren’t going anywhere.” As for private vehicles, a call to BC Ferries reservations indicates the next available reservation isn’t until May 22.

Penticton Western News

Penticton’s backyard hens trial is finally off the ground. The 18-month trial program attracted 12 applicants, which city council voted 5-3 in favour of giving them go ahead to start keeping egg-laying hens in their backyards, with Couns. Katie Robinson, John Vassilaki and Helena Konanz opposed. Konanz, in particular, has been opposed to the project since it was introduced, contributing to a tie vote that caused the proposition to fail when it was brought before council last year. “This is going to turn into a nightmare for bylaw enforcement,” she said. “Just for the record, I have lived beside chickens, and they are noisy.” Coun. Judy Sentes was just as firm in her support of the backyard hens project, and wanted to avoid rehashing previous discussions, given that council had already voted to support the pilot project. “I just want to be careful that we are not getting back into a debate that we have had not once, but twice,” said Sentes. “She told a small delegation protesting their neighbour’s application that council had already heard strong evidence contrary to concerns of odour, noise and pests due to keeping hens. “With respect to your concerns, you don’t know that. You don’t there will be noise, you don’t know there will be unacceptable odour. “The purpose of the pilot is to give opportunity for firsthand experience with this scenario,” explained Sentes. The basic rules are straightforward: a maximum of five hens, no roosters, coops must be set back 1.5 metres from property lines, and applicants agree to remove the hens and coop within 60 days if the pilot project is cancelled.

Bishop urges Trudeau to drop abortion stance THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - The Roman Catholic archbishop of Toronto is asking Justin Trudeau to reconsider his decision to bar would-be Liberal candidates who


‘Searching for Sugarman’ director dies THE ASSOCIATED PRESS STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Malik Bendjelloul, the acclaimed Swedish film director behind the Oscarwinning music documentary “Searching for Sugar Man” has died. He was 36. Police spokeswoman Pia Glenvik told The Associated Press that Bendjelloul died in Stockholm late Tuesday, but wouldn’t specify the cause of death. She said no crime is suspected in relation to the film maker’s death. “Searching for Sugar Man,” which tells the story of how American singer Sixto Rodriguez became a superstar in South Africa without knowing about it, won the Oscar for best documentary in 2013. It was the first time a Swedish film won an Oscar since Ingmar Bergman’s “Fanny and Alexander” in 1984. The soft-spoken, unassuming Bendjelloul worked as a reporter for Sweden’s public broadcaster SVT before resigning to travel the world. He got the idea for “Searching for Sugar Man” - his first feature film during one of his trips, but it would take him more than four years to complete the film.

Bendjelloul was born in 1977 to Swedish translator Veronica Schildt Bendjelloul and doctor Hacene Bendjelloul and acted in Swedish TV-series “Ebba and Didrik” as a child during the 1990s. He studied journalism and media-production at the Linnaeus University of Kalmar in southern Sweden before joining SVT where he worked as a reporter on the culture program Kobra. Bendjelloul’s sudden death came as a shock to many in the close-knit Swedish film community. “This terrible news has put us all in a state of shock,” Swedish Film Institute spokesman Jan Goransson told the AP. “Malik Bendjelloul was one of our most exciting film makers, which the Oscar award last year was a clear proof of.” Swedish film critic Hynek Pallas, who travelled with Bendjelloul to Hollywood when he received the Oscar, described him as a modest, but very determined man. “He was an incredibly talented storyteller,” Pallas wrote. “He had the strength of a marathon runner; to work on his film for so many years and sometimes without money, then you have a goal.”

do not endorse the party policy on abortion. Cardinal Thomas Collins wrote to the Liberal leader Wednesday to say he is deeply concerned about the controversy. Collins said he understands the need for party discipline, but questions whether that discipline can extend to matters of conscience. “Political leaders surely have the right to insist on party unity and discipline in political matters which are within the legitimate scope of their authority,” Collins wrote. “But that political authority is not limitless: it does not extend to matters of conscience and religious faith. It does not govern all aspects of life.” Trudeau has said the party won’t accept new candidates who are unwilling to vote

pro-choice on relevant Liberal legislation, although sitting MPs will be allowed to run even if they oppose the practice. The party issued a statement late Wednesday that acknowledged Collins’s perspective while gently declaring it would not be moved. “Like all other Canadians, Cardinal Collins has the freedom to express his deeply held beliefs,” said Trudeau spokeswoman Kate Purchase. “We obviously respect the cardinal, and his views. This is a matter of rights, and Canadians need to know that when they vote Liberal they will get representative who supports and defends women’s rights.” In his letter, the cardinal reminded Trudeau - who was raised in the Catholic faith of his famous father - that the patron

saint of politicians, Thomas More, was executed for following his conscience against the political authority of his day. Collins pointedly mentioned that there are two million Catholics in his

diocese. He said he encourages them to get involved in politics as both voters and candidates. “It is not right that they be excluded by any party for being faithful to their conscience.”

It’s not a conflict of interest if it happens in B.C.


hen conflict of interest legislation is drafted to go out of its way to ensure that it won’t actually find any conflicts of interest, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if it rarely does. And that pretty well sums up the legislative reach of B.C.’s declawed Members’ Conflict of Interest Act. So no great shock when Conflict of Interest Commissioner Paul Fraser decided last month that B.C. Premier Christy Clark hadn’t violated the act for failing to disclose – or for that matter remember – her past business relationship with RCI Pacific Gateway Education. Fraser didn’t bother to wait for Clark’s promised request to his office for an opinion on the relationship before opining to Clark’s chief of staff, Dan Doyle, that the premier had done nothing wrong. And he’s right. Clark didn’t violate the act. Even if the premier had remembered the RCI gig – and had been paid for it – Clark still wouldn’t have violated the act by failing

to disclose her relationship, since she wasn’t a “member” of the legislature at the time. Based on the public record, she likely hasn’t violated the act by helping promote parent company RCI Capital Group on trade missions to Asia either, though Fraser didn’t touch on that issue in his letter to Doyle. Since 2002, B.C.’s Conflict of Interest Commissioner has posted all of 15 opinions to the office’s website. And only once – in all of that time – did the Commissioner actually find a conflict, when in 2001 then Commissioner H.A.D. Oliver found against former Premier Glen Clark in a matter involving his handling of a casino license awarded to Dmitrios Pilarinos. There may have been some finger-wagging in some of those other rulings, but no actual findings of malfeasance. Fault the legislation, not the Commissioner, for this lopsided result. Under B.C.’s act, a “conflict of interest” or an “apparent




conflict of interest” only exists if a member knows that “in the performance of the duty or function or in the exercise of the power there is the opportunity to further his or her private interest” or “that a reasonably well informed person could have (the perception) that the member’s ability to exercise an official power or perform an official duty or function must have been affected by his or her private interest.” Note the narrow: “his or her private interest.” No one else’s. Next door in Alberta, a MLA will breach that province’s conflict of interest act if “the Member uses

the Member’s office or powers to influence or to seek to influence a decision to be made by or on behalf of the Crown to further a private interest of the Member, a person directly associated with the Member or the Member’s minor child or to improperly further another person’s private interest.” Among Saskatchewan’s stipulations: a member must not “use information gained in the performance of public office that is not available to the general public to further the member’s private interest, his or her family’s private interest or the private interest of an associate.” In Ontario, “a member of the Assembly shall not make a decision or participate in making a decision in the execution of his or her office if the member knows or reasonably should know that in the making of the decision there is an opportunity to further the member’s private interest or improperly to further another person’s private interest.”

Ironically, B.C. MLAs have crafted tougher conflict of interest rules for local governments than they have for themselves. And even those rules are a mishmash of incomprehensible whatyamacallits for many councillors. And when it comes to their political afterlife, B.C. MLAs made certain they got off pretty easy too. B.C. may have a cooling-off period for defeated or retired MLAs, but it would be better described as “a defrost for however long it takes to clear out of your legislature office.” It’s how former Chilliwack MLA John Les can go from one day to the next issuing news releases as a MLA attacking Metro Vancouver’s proposed waste incinerator to being a paid lobbyist for a waste management firm that stands to benefit if the B.C. government puts the kibosh to that incinerator without anyone batting so much as an eyelid.

According to my conversation with Statistics Canada officials, its subsidies were driven mainly by transfers to corporations and government-owned businesses (and not much to consumers). They were costly transfers, at $115.5 billion between 1981 and 2009. Again, using other sources to gain a glimpse of where some money went, and back to the federal books using Industry Canada data, it turns out $3.3 billion went to one company, Pratt & Whitney. And using VIA Rail annual reports (as an example of a government business), subsidies to that Crown Corporation from the federal government amounted to $4.5 billion. But back to the “big data” from Statistics Canada. The subsidies were equivalent to $3,268 per taxpayer – every person who paid income tax in 1984. The lowest-cost year was 1998 when the equivalent cost per taxpayer was $797. In the last available statistical year, the 2008/09 fiscal year (before the massive bailout for General Motors and Chrysler kicked in), the equivalent cost per taxpayer was $1,507. While few would object to some government subsidies – say to low-income consumers to heat their homes – others, such as subsidies to corporations, are something less than prudent. In the future, one hopes Statistics Canada returns to crunching some of these numbers again, and in more detail. That would help the public, politicians, and media better debate and prioritize government spending.

Event brings special result By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

It was a full card at the Trail Curling Facility on the weekend as the Colombo Lodge’s 10th annual AM Ford Bocce Classic hosted a record lineup of boccini rollers including four teams from Special Olympics-Trail. Eighty competitors signed up for the two-day event, the most Colombo organizer Pat Zanier has seen since its inception. “We had 40 teams, so that’s pretty well maxed out,” said Zanier. “That’s 10 more teams than last year.” This year’s event ran over two days, on four bocce pitches with a growing and enthusiastic following. “Over the years people have been popping into the curling rink during Silver City Days and watching a bit, and saying, ‘Oh I’d like to do that,’” said Zanier. “I think it’s finally coming about where people are showing some interest, and the ones that show up have a good time and want to keep coming back. It’s all about just having fun. ” In the A event Bruno DeRosa and Leo Ganzini took home top spot, while Ladies A event winners were Barb Secco and Irene Aiken. Tom Hall and Joanne Drysten claimed the B event title, while the C event went to Michelle March and Liz Bertuzzi. Yet, even more significant was the great showing of four Special Olympic Trail bocce teams that have been training for the B.C.S.O. Summer Games. “I was impressed, they had some really good games, and even the games they lost, they didn’t lose by much,” said Zanier. The pairing of Tim McTeer and Maria Veltri was almost unstoppable winning three matches on their way to a thirdplace finish. It was the first time the Special Olympians participated in the Colombo-AM Ford bocce tournament and their fine showing didn’t surprise Zanier or other veteran Colombo bocce masters. “They practice up at the (bocce) pits all the time, and they come actually to the Colombo Lodge and use our pit in the winter time downstairs,” said

Zanier. “So they know what they’re doing, and we saw it, they are pretty good.” In another match, the Special O team of Kayleigh Postmus and Sherry Altrogge made an incredible comeback. Down 15-11, Postmus and Altrogge made a series of great shots to overcome the deficit in a 16-15 victory. “All the other games were done, and the next group of games couldn’t start because this one was on,” said Special Olympic coordinator Ben Postmus. “Everybody in the curling rink was watching this game so when the girls won it, the whole place just erupted.” While it may seem a small thing to participate in such an event, Postmus asserts that for the SOBC athletes to be included in the tournament is groundbreaking in its own right. “You guys (the Colombo Lodge) have done a huge thing in the community,” said Postmus. “People are going to be talking about this for a long time, because it’s not typical for the Special Olympic guys to be included in something like this. There’s not many communities in B.C. where they would be included.” The Colombo organizers didn’t hesitate to welcome the contingent to the event and the competitors were suitably impressed with the eight Special Olympic bocce players, which included McTeer, Veltri, Postmus, Altrogge, Jake Miller, Bob Lattanzio, Fred Crerar, and Neil Emery, who were also excited to be part of the tournament. “They were thrilled, they were having a blast,” said Zanier. “And I told them you guys got to come back because there are prizes, and they’re like, ‘We get a prize too?’ But as Ben says, ‘Their prize was just getting to play’ . . . It’s all about breaking down those barriers.” The event proved a positive and genuinely enjoyable experience not just for the Special O teams but for all participants, organizers, and supporters. Postmus is looking forward to next year already and sees this small step as a giant leap forward for Greater Trail Special Olympic athletes. “In the end everyone wins.”

Border Bruins hire new boss By Craig Lindsay Grand Forks Gazette

He recently retired from his job at the mine in Flin Flon and that allowed him to pursue a full-time coaching gig. In addition to coaching the junior A Bombers, he has coached the Manitoba Bantam rep team at the Western Canadian championships and has won six gold medals at the provincial level. Snyder said he’s impressed with the eligible returning players that the Bruins have in the fold. He expects to have a competitive team next season.

The Grand Forks Border Bruins have opted for experience over youth when selecting their next coach and general manager. The new man behind the bench for the Bruins is Brad Snyder, who has over 35 years of experience coaching hockey at various levels in Manitoba. Snyder hails from Flin Flon, where he coached the junior A Bombers as well as various youth teams at different levels. “He appears to be very committed to the job,” said Martin Vanlerberg, president of the Bruins. “He loves the area. That was one of the big pieces. He wintered in Osoyoos and came and saw some of the games and he just fell in love with the area.” Snyder came to Grand Forks for an interview with the Bruins board of directors in May and got a tour of the area.

Brayden Cuthbert and Jared Morris scored 47 seconds apart in the first and Brett Hope and Tyler Garrioch added Kings tallies in the second. Colton Sparrow and Ryan Renz got Vernon within two in the third period but that’s as close as it got.

Attend reunion to get to know older siblings Mailbox

Marcy Sugar & Kathy Mitchell

nor Sara called to see how we were or offered to take my young son for some time away from his depressed parents. When I asked them why, they became defensive and said I always make them feel inferior. My older siblings agree that Sara and Tina are jealous of me, but they made no effort to intervene and simply told me to ignore them. So I did. Sara, Tina and I live in the same city. Four years ago, I had another baby, and they never came to see us. At that point, I cut them off altogether. Yesterday, I received an invitation to a family reunion. I don’t want

your children might be closer in age to their grandchildren. If you still feel like an outsider after this, any additional contact is unnecessary. Dear Annie: My friends and I play cards once a week at “Jennie’s” house. However, when the phone rings, she answers it while the game is in progress. Do you think she should get into a lengthy conversation while we sit there and wait for the conversation to end? These are not emergency calls. I don’t feel comfortable confronting her about this. How can I handle this tactfully? -- A Friend Dear Friend: You already know that having a lengthy phone conversation while entertaining others is rude. Before you begin playing next time, all of you should discuss adding a rule saying that anyone who stays on the phone longer than

60 seconds must withdraw from the game or forfeit her turn until the conversation is over. But we also notice that you are meeting at Jennie’s and nowhere else. Why not alternate homes and give her a break? Dear Annie: Tell

“Anonymous” to call her local veterinarian to see whether he has a use for the empty prescription pill containers. Our vet was very happy to take all of the pill bottles we could give him. -- Barb Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy

to go. I don’t consider these people my family any longer, and it will only hurt to see that I’ve always been the outsider. My son is 12 and my daughter is 7, and they don’t know any of my siblings. What do you think? -Thought I Was Part of a Large Family Dear Thought: When there is a large age gap between siblings, it can be difficult to form a close bond. And because you seem to have focused all of your efforts solely on Tina and Sara, you believe that none of your siblings has any interest in you. While you are not obligated to attend a family reunion, this is a lot of family to ignore. We suggest you attend, but give Tina and Sara only a brief acknowledgment, and then try to spend time getting to know your other siblings and their children. You might find more common ground there, and

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

Dear Annie: I’m the youngest of 10 siblings. Most of my brothers and sisters are much older, and I was raised primarily with “Sara and Tina,” who often bullied and hit me. Consequently, my mother would not leave me alone with them, and my sisters grew to resent the closeness I had with Mom. When we grew up, I was the one who took responsibility for my parents when they were sick and needed money. I put myself through college and established an excellent career. My parents admired this, but Sara and Tina became passive-aggressive toward me. They voiced their dislike of my husband, and they never called or included me in family outings. I have always loved my nieces and nephews and have been attentive to their birthdays and celebrations. But when my 4-year-old daughter died, neither Tina




YourByhoroscope Francis Drake For Friday, May 16, 2014 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Do something different today to satisfy your need for adventure. However, avoid major purchases and important decisions. Keep things light. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Although you might be focused on red-tape details about insurance matters, inheritances, taxes and debt, this is a poor day to make important decisions. Just take care of business as usual. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The Moon is opposite your sign today, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This happens every month for about two days. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You’ll feel better if you do something to get better organized today. Tidy some clutter or clean your home or your workspace. Make a list!

Thursday, May 15, 2014 Trail Times

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) This is a wonderfully creative day for you! You are in touch with your Muse and can think outside the box. Give your imagination free range. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good day for a heart-to-heart talk with a family member. Or you might want to entertain at home and enjoy the good vibes with everyone. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) This is a creative day for teachers, actors, writers and people involved in communication. Although it’s a poor day for important decisions, nevertheless, you are full of original, novel ideas. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) This is a poor day to shop for anything other than food or gas. Fresh ideas and decisions that you generate today will not meet your goals. Just tread water.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) The Moon is in your sign today; however, it is void-ofcourse. That is an astrological term meaning you are like a helium balloon floating free in the sky. Great for creativity; poor for business. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Work alone or behind the scenes today, because you have a strong need for privacy. Some of you might

prefer to cocoon at home. Do whatever you can to seek refuge from the busy world. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) A confidential conversation with a female acquaintance will be significant today. If you’re discussing group goals, postpone final decisions until tomorrow. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Personal details about your private life might be made

public today. This is probably nothing to worry about, because things are a bit fuzzy. (Nobody really knows anything for sure.) YOU BORN TODAY You are colorful, uninhibited and flamboyant because you like to make an impression. But also it is simply who you are. You are powerful and imaginative, and often choose to express these qualities through your wardrobe and style of dressing. Above all,









you are memorable because you are generous and kind. This year you begin a new nine-year cycle. Open any door! Birthdate of: Janet Jackson, singer; David Boreanaz, actor; Joseph Morgan, actor.
