School strike on as talks collapse BY TOM FLETCHER Black Press

An exchange of proposals between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and government negotiators on the weekend dissolved in acrimony Monday, with a full-scale strike in public schools already underway. Negotiators for the BCTF and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association met until midnight Sunday, as the union moved from rotating strikes to a full walkout with a “study session” on Monday. The two sides contradicted each other on the substance of the wage offers, and each said the next move is up to the other if a deal is to be reached. BCTF president Jim Iker said a complete strike is “imminent,” after union members endorsed the move in their second province-wide strike vote. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said Monday he is waiting for a response from the union to the latest offer from BCPSEA, which represents the province’s 60 school districts. BCPSEA chief negotiator Peter Cameron said Monday the union’s latest wage offer is a reduction from its previous position, but when increased benefit costs are factored in, it is still more than twice as much compensation as other public sector union settlements. BCPSEA posted a comparison of the two wage offers Monday. It describes the BCTF proposal as a $5,000 signing bonus followed by increases of 3.5 per cent in the first year and 1.5 per cent in each of the next three years, for a total raise of 8 per cent plus compounding. The B.C. Labour Relations Board has extended its essential services order to include provincial final exams and marks for graduating students, so they can apply for postsecondary studies.

J. L. Crowe Secondary School’s 2014 graduating class said farewell to high school Friday night with an emotional send off.


Crowe graduates ready for next challenge BY VALERIE ROSSI Times Staff

The future looks bright for nearly 170 graduates who proudly received their diplomas and tossed their caps high above a crowd of approximately 800 people this past weekend. A sea of blue took over the Cominco Arena Friday night when J. L. Crowe Secondary grads reflected on the past five years at the Trail high school and looked forward to their next chapter with departing words from comrades, special guests and staff. “As a group, adversity has challenged you directly or indirectly on several occasions this year and there will be more ahead,” said principal David DeRosa. “You have the capacity and the character to move forward

and to achieve your goals; we’ve seen it in you.” DeRosa often knew he was in trouble when a Beaver Valley Nitehawk, a high school debate champion, a young man with more film production credits than Martin Scorsese or a young lady, who five years ago spoke no English, approached his office with yet another idea. “No appointments; no heads up; usually

smiles; never enough Timbits,” he laughed. “There were days that I just didn't stand a chance.” Leadership was not something that this class lacked, he said, a constant message shared throughout the ceremony that was further highlighted when a total of 176 awards and prizes equaling $132,000 were doled out to 91 deserving students. At this pinnacle moment, the class was reminded how far they've come from entering the school as “bright-eyed and innocent eighth-graders” by valedictorian Eric Matteucci. “As frightened Grade 8s we walked down the halls, careful not to get in the way of any Grade 12 students,” he recalled.

Former RSS 7-Eleven store slated to close this week students part of Crowe grad Future of convenience store site remains up in the air By Art Harrison

FROM PAGE 1 “It almost seemed like they could smell our fear, and at any moment we could be ambushed and would get to test out the interior of the shiny, new teal lockers that lined the halls.” But this frightful first impression quickly faded and over the years friendships were made and with that a strength formed. This continued into the group’s final year when Crowe welcomed former Rossland Secondary senior students into their community, with some finishing their final year at the school. “RSS set itself a part from other schools with highly acclaimed art, drama and band programs as well as incredible pride for their school sports teams,” said Matteucci. “This year we unified under the same roof and went from being the Grade12s from Rossland and Crowe to being the graduating class of 2014.” It was in the final months of high school that this tight-knit class, and community for that matter, suffered from a major loss. But fallen classmate Nolan Handley was not missing in spirit during the ceremony, where many paid tribute to him. “In our struggle, we found hope and comfort in our families at home and also our families here at the Crowe,” said Matteucci. “We, the grads of 2014, have shown our resiliency and our abilility to persevere when it felt like we could not go on and that is something that we should be proud of.” Pressing on was the same message voiced by guest speaker John Boateng, a former Crowe graduate who shared his “dandy” of a failure list, which highlighted throwing up during a watermelon eating competition at Montrose Family Fun Days to a failed basketball dunk that turned into a YouTube sensation. But, he said, these epic failures along the way only built him up for success and he is now the founder of Dream Hoops Academy, a writer and a financial broker. The athlete didn’t get a chance to attend his graduation ceremony because he was off chasing his basketball career and was quick to savour his participation Friday with a quick photo of the class on his cell phone, which put the emotional crowd in stitches. Tears of laughter and sorrow were wiped with Matteucci’s parting, honest words that reminded the graduates that they’re in control of their future, which will be full of difficult decisions that will define their character and in a sense their life. “We must remember to contemplate our actions and know how they will affect us and those around us,” he said. “That is what these five years have prepared us for and it is something we must never forget on our journey through the rest of our lives.”

The fate of the last lonely gas station in downtown Trail is still undecided with only days to go before the current retailer onsite, 7-Eleven Stores, takes its leave. “7-Eleven has the lease until the end of the month but they are pulling out on the 20th,” said Adrien Byrne, spokesperson for Chevron Canada, who owns the site and fuel services. “It will still be their site for those 10 days and we won’t be able to operate under their lease,” he said. “It may take some time to get the retail end of things back online. Worst case scenario, we’ll try to keep the gas going.” On Monday, the Trail Times attempted to contact representatives from both Chevron and 7-Eleven but calls were not returned by press time. June 20 signals the end of 7-Eleven’s 30-year presence in Trail and it has been the city’s only 24-hour convenience store and gas bar for much of that time. The Victoria Street Chevron station has been the only source of any fuel in downtown Trail since the Esso station

The 7-Eleven in downtown Trail is expected to close this week but the fuel truck was busy filling up the tanks on Monday. shut down in 2009, shortly after the closing of the Petro-Canada station across the street in 2008 after a fire damaged part of that establishment.

Unfortunately, Byrne isn’t in a position to make any promises about possible dates for the convenience store operation on the site.

Double dose of awards for Best Western Columbia River Hotel garners international kudos By Liz Bevan Times Staff

Geno LaRose, general manager of sales at Trail’s Best Western Plus Columbia River Hotel attributes excellence in the hotel’s day-to-day operations that has the hotel winning international awards the Best Western Chairman’s Award and the Trip Advisor Award of Excellence 2014. “We focus on our product, price, service and atmosphere,” he said. “[We] do it in an effective, efficient and excellent manner for all of our customers, the company and employees.” LaRose says it is the staff at the 61-room hotel that puts it the winning category for the Chairman’s Award, given to the top five per cent of Best Western Hotels on a global level. The award takes cleanliness, maintenance, design and customer service into consideration when choosing recipients. “It’s one of those things 306 Kootenay Ave, Trail

that just reconfirms what we do on a daily basis,” he said. “It’s the whole team at the hotel.” The Trip Advisor Award of Excellence holds a different meaning for LaRose and fellow staff at the Columbia River Hotel because the recognition is based on guests reviewing their stay in Trail. To be considered for the Award of Excellence, businesses must

maintain a four-out-of-five star rating on the Trip Advisor website, as well as getting upto-date positive reviews. “It’s a faceless kind of review,” said LaRose. “It’s one of those anonymous ones and to know that we are appreciated even without our direct involvement in the reviews, for example, it is great. It is unbiased opinion and that is excellent. They aren’t looking

at you from across the desk. They are at a computer elsewhere, so they could vent.” The hotel would not have received these prestigious awards without teamwork and LaRose says it shows everyone coming together to maintain excellence. “Thanks to all of our guests for coming to the property and everybody on staff for doing such and excellent job.”

National recognition for Teck By Liz Bevan Times Staff

The largest employer in the Trail area, Teck Resources Ltd., has been recognized on the national stage for its work in corporate citizenship and social responsibility. Teck President and CEO, Don Lindsay, says the recognition is indicative of the company’s place within communities and the metallurgy industry. “These acknowledgments reflect our commitments to operation in a responsible and sustainable manner,” he said in a press release. “Led by the innovation and dedication of our employees, we are committed to creating lasting benefits in the communities where we operate.

company Corporate Knights’ 13th annual list of the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada. The list, released earlier in June, takes a ‘range of environmental and social indicators, including companies’ carbon, water, waste and energy use,’ into consideration. Each company is given a percentage grade and ranked. The metallurgic refinery was also named one of the Top 50 Socially Responsible Corporations in Canada by global responsible investment research firm Sustainalytics. Sustainalytics has a system where companies are ranked based on performance in environmental, social and governance. Teck credits its success and rankings to a company-wide Sustainability Strategy, implemented in 2011.

Provincial Northern GAteway Pipeline

B.C. chops $11 million from home owner grant

Opponents gear up for provincial campaign

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER Resigned, perhaps, that federal government approval of the Northern Gateway pipeline is inevitable, opponents of the project are formulating a plan to make sure British Columbia’s politicians remain opposed to the project. For months now, members of the Dogwood Initiative have been preparing for a provincial referendum akin to the vote that forced the Liberal government to repeal the harmonized sales tax in British Columbia. Should Ottawa give the pipeline the goahead by today’s deadline and the province issues the necessary permits and authorizations, spokesman Kai Nagata said his group will be ready. “In a perfect world, politicians would do what they say they’re going to do and the province of British Columbia’s clear rejection of Northern Gateway would stand,” Nagata said. “But life doesn’t always work that way. So the initiative build is a strategy to basically hold our provincial politicians to their word on this project.” The B.C. gov-

“In a perfect world, politicians would do what they say they’re going to do and the province of British Columbia’s clear rejection of Northern Gateway would stand.” Kai Nagata

ernment officially declared its opposition to Northern Gateway and told the federal panel reviewing the project that it shouldn’t go ahead as planned. When Premier Christy Clark pressed for a greater share of government revenues for the project she said repeatedly that while the final decision is in the federal purview there are about 60 permits the province will have to issue for construction to begin. “So the province could hold construction in limbo indefinitely,” Nagata said. Under provincial legislation, for $50 any registered voter can apply to Elections BC for a petition on their own proposed legislation. If approved, they have 90 days to collect the signatures of 10 per cent of the registered voters in each of the province’s 85 ridings. The petitions are

non-binding. If the chief electoral officer verifies that threshold has been met, a copy of the petition and draft bill are sent to a legislative committee. The Select Standing Committee on Legislative Initiatives can either table a report recommending introduction of the draft bill or put it to a public vote. If more than half of registered voters cast ballots in support, the government must introduce the bill in the legislature. But even that is no guarantee of success. The bill proceeds as any other legislation, with MLAs free to vote as they wish. Since 1995, nine initiative applications have been approved but only one petition gathered the required number of signatures to pass. That campaign resulted in a provincewide vote in favour of repealing the harmonized sales

tax. Bill Tieleman, one of the founders of the Fight HST campaign, wishes the Dogwood organizers luck but said he’s not optimistic about their odds of success. “It’s extraordinarily difficult,” he said. Support for the initiative must come from every riding. Although they set out with 85 per cent of voters opposing the tax, the HST campaign only barely met the threshold in one Abbotsford riding, Tieleman said. And that was with taxpayers faced daily with the reality of paying the hated tax, he noted. “They’ll make their targets in a lot of Vancouver and Victoria (ridings) but that’s not the way it works. It’s not a five per cent or ten per cent of all voters. It’s every riding,” Tieleman said. “There’s a lot more people who support the Enbridge pipeline for job creation and economic reasons than supported the HST.” Nagata said he realizes there is work yet to be done. But a legal team is working on the draft legislation and there are 450 trained volunteers on the ground

across the province. There are 5,500 people who say they will help collect signatures and already 27,000 people who have pledged to sign. They are aiming for 15 per cent of voters in each riding to ensure success once signatures are verified. They’ll need 320,000 verified signatures spread throughout the 85 ridings and Nagata said an announcement is imminent about labour, environment and community groups that will join the campaign. Despite the odds, he’s confident that if the initiative must go ahead, it will succeed. “We know from our own polling and our work on the doorsteps that this is an issue that’s moved into the mainstream,” he explained. “We live in this province. We pay taxes in this province. The idea that a pipeline could be built through our province ... without any democratic input from British Columbia is something that people - regardless of their political affiliations or their education level or their place of residence agree on.”

Some B.C. home owners have discovered they’re paying more in property tax this year because of a cash clawback by the provincial government. The provincial finance ministry reduced the threshold to qualify for the full home owner grant toward property taxes from $1.295 million in 2013 to $1.1 million this year. That means homes assessed between those two amounts have now lost some or all of the home owner grant they previously received, leaving a higher property tax bill to be paid. Finance ministry spokesman Jamie Edwardson said the change reduces or eliminates the home owner grant for 18,000 property owners, or about 1.5 per cent of the ones previously eligible. Just over 93 per cent of B.C. home owners now qualify for the grant, down from about 95 per cent last year. Assessed property values decreased in many parts of the Lower Mainland over the past year, although not by anywhere near as much as the 15 per cent cut in the threshold for the home owner grant. Edwardson said the reduced threshold “means we are able to direct approximately $11 million to other priority programs.” He noted the province has low-interest loan programs that allow many home owners – including those over 55, people with disabilities and families with children – to defer some or all of their property taxes until they sell their home or it becomes part of an estate. The home owner grant is worth $570 and is reduced by $5 for every $1,000 in assessed value over the threshold, meaning there’s no grant on homes worth more than $1.214 million.

THE CANADIAN PRESS HOPE, B.C. - When 19-year-old Paul Jarvis first caught sight of the fish on his line, he thought it could be a shark. That’s how big the sturgeon was that he caught Thursday in the Fraser River near this southwest B.C. community. “All of a sudden it jumped out of the water,

and I’m never going to forget the way it jumped out,” said Jarvis. “It looked like a shark jumping out of the water towards us.” “I was thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, this is massive,”’ the American tourist said. The Atlanta, Ga., resident’s catch was about 3.5 metres long, and the tour fishing company that provided a guide for Jarvis estimated the animal weighed about 399 kilograms. Matthew Clive of Great River Fishing Adventures said the catch can’t be entered into an official record because that would require the fish to be killed. Sturgeon are a protected species. It took about one hour of wrestling with the giant fish before Jarvis could lead it towards a nearby beach. “I can’t explain the pain,” said Jarvis of his struggle with the behemoth. “It kills your lower back, it hurts your legs, I’m still kind of sore from reeling it in.” Once the sturgeon was exhausted, Jarvis, his father and their guide jumped out of their seven-metre fishing boat and pushed the fish near the shore, where they measured and photographed it before releasing it. “It was an experience of a lifetime - it’s amazing, I’ll never forget that,” Jarvis said.

National Newfoundland

Incoming leader drops out THE CANADIAN PRESS ST. JOHN’S, N.L. - The leadership of Newfoundland and Labrador’s governing Progressive Conservatives was thrown into a tailspin Monday after the man who had a clear path to becoming the province’s next premier suddenly dropped out of politics. Frank Coleman, 60, a successful businessman based in Corner Brook, said he decided to leave public life because of a “significant and challenging family matter.” He would not elaborate at a news conference in St. John’s, saying only that his family comes first. Coleman was supposed to become leader of the party at a convention on July 5, then be sworn-in as premier shortly after. The party has been in power since 2003 and began the search for a new leader in January when Kathy Dunderdale quit politics. Tom Marshall has been serving as premier on an interim basis since Dunderdale left. Coleman emerged as the sole leadership contender earlier this spring after one candidate dropped out and another was barred from running by the party. Coleman has been under intense scrutiny since his wife Yvonne and other members of his family joined a pro-life march on Good Friday, as they have done for years. He later denied that his pro-life views would affect access to abortion.

Convicted mayor resigns THE CANADIAN PRESS LONDON, Ont. - The mayor of London, Ont., who was convicted last week on three fraud-related charges from his time as a federal Liberal cabinet minister, is stepping down. Joe Fontana’s city hall office released a statement today saying he is resigning as the mayor of London. Fontana was convicted Friday of fraud, forgery and breach of trust after a judge found he forged an expenses document submitted to the House of Commons in 2005 that resulted in a $1,700 government fraud. Sentencing arguments are scheduled for July 15.


Millions sought for crash THE CANADIAN PRESS QUEBEC - The Quebec government is adding its name to a list of creditors seeking money from the insolvent railway company at the heart of the Lac-Megantic train disaster. The government said Monday that it is seeking $409 million from the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway for expenses incurred and yet to come that stem from the tragedy. The Justice Department said it filed a claim on June 13. In it, the government said it has already spent $126 million in public funds and suggests that future costs relating to the rebuilding of Lac-Megantic could be in excess of $283 million. The government warned the latter amount could change depending on how much is actually spent. Three employees and the insolvent company itself have been charged criminally in the case. Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee said the government is exercising its right to recoup taxpayer money, but it also believes that the first people to be paid in the process should be the citizens of Lac-Megantic themselves.

Study suggests wages on par with U.S.

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Wage levels in Canada are generally in line with those in the United States, says an internal government study, suggesting the pay packets of Canadian workers pose no special competitive disadvantage. The research, by Employment and Social Development Canada, found that since the 2008-2009 global financial crisis, any average differences in the two countries’ absolute wage levels have largely disappeared. Less educated Canadians earn slightly higher wages than their American counterparts, but well-educated Canadians earn slightly less. The result appears to be a more equalized wage economy that is well-positioned internationally to compete with Canada’s largest trading partner and others. The results show that Canada’s wages are lower than their U.S. counterparts for wholesale and retail, finance and business, manu-

facturing, and transportation and utilities. And wages are generally the same for construction, community services, personal services and public administration. Only in the primary sector, such as resource extraction, are they higher. The 2013 study, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act, was partly intended to measure whether Canada’s wage levels are hurting the country economically. “Wages are often a key factor for Canadians’ standard of living, and a comparison helps to illuminate Canada’s international competitiveness,” said Eric Morrissette, a spokesperson for the department, when asked why the study was undertaken. A labour economist for Unifor, the union representing Canadian autoworkers and others, said the government study is a useful corrective to the claim that overpaid workers are damag-

ing Canada’s economic prospects. “Hourly wages are not higher than in the U.S., despite the rhetoric of some politicians that our wages have somehow priced us out of international competitiveness,” said Jim Stanford. “They invoke this claim to justify their attacks on unions and pay, but this research indicates that our competitiveness problem is not due to wages. It is mostly due to an overvalued exchange rate.” Stanford noted that the study looked only at hourly wages. Had salaries been considered as well, Canada’s competitive pay advantage would be more pronounced, he said. The study, entitled “Which is a lower-wage economy: Canada or the United States?,” looked not only at relative wages as measured by exchange rates but also took into account so-called absolute measures, by looking at the actual purchasing power

of differing wage levels. The research by Jun Chen and Guohan Zhu found that “Americans with university education earn significantly more than Canadian counterparts.” “Workers with some postsecondary and high school education earn about the same in Canada and the U.S.” And “Canadians with less than high school earn slightly more than their American counterparts.” Stanford said the research, going back to 1997, also shows how little progress workers have made over the years. “Real wages in both countries have been shockingly stagnant,” he said. “Workers have not really got a raise in either country for the entire period covered by the data.” “Stagnant household incomes are a key factor holding back our economy, weakening consumer purchasing power, and contributing to high indebtedness.”

Voter turnout climbs in Ontario election

THE CANADIAN PRESS TORONTO - Ontario managed to reverse two decades of declining voter turnout in this week’s provincial election, but observers warned that the increase - positive as it was - still meant just over half of the province made it to the polls. Unofficial results indicated 52.1 per cent of the province’s 9.2 million eligible voters cast their ballots, compared to 48.2 per

cent in the last election in 2011, Elections Ontario said on Friday. That meant 4.8 million Ontarians had a say in shaping the Liberal majority government that emerged from Thursday’s election. “It’s good news that the ongoing free fall in voter turnout seems to have reversed itself,” said Myer Siemiatycki, a political professor at Ryerson University in Toronto. “On the other hand,

it’s barely over the 50 per cent mark and we are still left stuck with the reality that basically half the population doesn’t vote. That is a sorry reminder of how entrenched our democratic deficit is when it comes to election time.” Voter turnout in Ontario had seen a steady decline from 1990, when it was 64.4 per cent. The latest figures bring Ontario back to the level of engagement at the

polls that it saw in the 2007 provincial election. Still, Ontario’s slight bump in voter turnout was nothing to cheer about, said Esselment, noting, however, that citizens

weren’t necessarily disinterested in politics. “Evidence on interest in politics is often that people are interested in it, but that doesn’t always translate to voting.”

Ontario election lessons for our province

Liberal” is becoming one of the most ill-defined words in Canadian politics. Here in B.C., a Liberal is a Conservative, or at least a fiscal conservative, bent on balancing budgets and battling big unions to force them to recognize today’s world of low growth and low inflation. In Ottawa, a Liberal is currently whatever Justin Trudeau wakes up and decides. One day he’s a libertarian who wants to legalize marijuana, and the next he’s in touch with his inner Taliban, issuing a moral edict on abortion. In Ontario, Premier Kathleen Wynne saved her gut-shot Liberal government by limping to the left of the NDP, promising to spend lots more borrowed money and build lots of transit. This is in a have-not province with an operating deficit that is currently running north of $12

billion. For comparison purposes, B.C.’s deficit swelled briefly beyond $3 billion in the wake of the Great Recession of 2009, and the books stayed in the red until last year as the B.C. Liberals unwound the Harmonized Sales Tax and repaid a $1.6 billion HST transfer allowance to Ottawa. You think B.C.’s energy policy is a disaster? Check out Ontario, where the cops are still investigating the $1 billion cancellation of plans to construct two natural gas-fired power plants before the 2011 election. The gas plants were to stabilize erratic output from wind and solar power, a European-style climate change gesture that involved Ontario ratepayers giving a huge subsidy to Korean tech giant Samsung. The Ontario Liberals clung to power in part by promising a provincial



pension scheme on the same scale as the Canada Pension Plan. B.C. has a similar pension program in the works, to be offered to the two thirds of small business and self-employed people who don’t have a group plan with their employer. Ours would, of course, be voluntary. Not so in Ontario, where large and small businesses will be required to cough up half of the required pension payments. The Ontario model is dumb on several levels.

It is to be imposed just as the baby boom retirement wave breaks across Canada’s most populous province, increasing risk that the pension pool may run dry. And it sticks small business with a new payroll tax in a province that has lost much of its traditional manufacturing base and needs to innovate. Here’s the funny part, if you don’t live in Ontario. Wynne tabled her spending-spree, deficitbe-damned budget in an effort to convince the NDP to keep propping up the Liberal minority government and avoid an election. Instead, she won a majority and now has to implement her pie-in-thesky promises. Ontario is bracing for a downgrade in its credit rating based on the election result, and is about to go into province-wide bargaining with public service unions who want

their share from the Liberal money tree. Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak ran on a plan that sounded similar to the one presented by Christy Clark in 2013: hold the line on spending, balance the budget, reduce the size of government, stimulate job creation. Hudak was rejected for a second time, and resigned the leadership on election night. B.C. voters now have three years to see how the Ontario version of Liberal government plays out, compared to the B.C. Liberal version. For us, much depends on resource development, including forest products, natural gas and other trade with Asia. If all goes well here, B.C. can continue to send transfer payments to the fantasyland of Ontario. Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Fans flock to ‘Field of Dreams’ anniversary

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS DYERSVILLE, Iowa - Actor Colin Egglesfield wasn’t in the classic baseball film “Field of Dreams.” But if they built a screen in centre field, he would come. When Egglesfield heard about plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the movie’s release during Father’s Day weekend in Iowa, he flew to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, picked up his dad and drove six hours to the farm where it was filmed. The site of the Oscar-nominated film about an Iowa farmer who hears a voice whisper “If you build it, he will come” and follows through on his vision by building a baseball diamond over a corn field has itself become a tourist destination since the movie’s release in 1989. So it was only natural for the farm in northeast Iowa to host a three-day celebration of the film that made it so famous. Stars such as Kevin Costner and Timothy Busfield joined celebrities like Egglesfield, past American League Cy Young award winner Bret Saberhagen and thousands of fans from all over the Midwest at the remote locale. Costner played the role of Ray Kinsella, the farmer whose diamond lured both the 1919 Chicago “Black Sox” and his own long-gone father out of the cornstalks beyond left field. Twenty-five years later, Costner brought his wife and kids back to Iowa to reminisce about his role in one of the most beloved sports movies of all time. “I’m glad to be here with friends and old acquaintances and making some new ones, and for my children to be a part of this,” Costner said. “It’s certainly a high mark for me, this little movie, and it remains so.” The weekend was jam-packed with activities like celebrity softball games and concerts from the Gin Blossoms, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, and even Costner’s own country band, Modern West. Many believe the film’s enduring popularity is tied to how it tackled the timeless issues of fathers, sons and their often complicated relationships. That wasn’t lost on organizers, who allowed dozens of dads to play catch with their kids both boys and girls - in the outfield on Saturday morning.

Dreamworks eyes YouTube THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - DreamWorks TV is debuting as a YouTube channel in one of the first attempts by Hollywood to mesh the polished look of movies with the chaos of content on the Internet. The channel is aimed at 6 to 11 year olds and with a mix of videos featuring characters familiar to DreamWorks Animation audiences alongside those who haven’t yet made it big. So you’ll see such characters as Po from “Kung Fu Panda” and Shrek, as well as the cardboard cut-out animated news anchors from “The Report Card.”

Christians and Muslims in old Yugoslavia before the breakup and the Balkan wars of the 1990s, most Sunnis and Shias in Iraq before 2003 lived side by side with a fairly low degree of friction. It was the fight against foreign occupation after 2003 that radicalized people in Iraq and drove so many of them back into narrow sectarian identities. “Al-Qaeda in Iraq”, the original name for what now calls itself ISIS, was born in that struggle, and Tony Blair and George W. Bush were its midwives. It’s striking that Al-Qaeda in Iraq’s main target during the occupation was to kill large numbers of Shias rather than lots of Americans. Its strategy was to provoke a sectarian war in which Iraqi Sunnis would be losing at first – but then their plight would trigger intervention by Sunni states in the region and lead to a general Sunni-Shia war. It was a convoluted, nasty and deeply unrealistic strategy, but it made sense in terms of their radical Islamist ideology. If there had been no invasion, and Saddam Hussein had been overthrown by a popular revolution only three years ago, there would certainly be great tension in a newly democratic Iraq now. Sunni Arabs would be having trouble coming to terms with their minority status (which most were unaware of under Saddam). Shias would be tempted to exploit their majority status unfairly. Kurds would be pushing for more autonomy. But they would be doing so in an atmosphere that had not been contaminated by a decade of sectarian hatred and savagery. There would be no organizations like ISIS dedicated to waging a sectarian war. And even if Saddam Hussein had not been overthrown and Iraq was caught up in a civil war like Syria’s, it would have a far less sectarian character. As would Syria’s, for that matter.

Top-10 list for Canada’s 150th birthday includes Trudeau, Fox and Layton

THE CANADIAN PRESS OTTAWA - Canadians have handed the Harper government a Top 10 list of the country’s greatest heroes, featuring some of the Conservative party’s greatest adversaries, past and present. The list, compiled from online consultations in the run-up to Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017, includes Pierre Trudeau, Jack Layton, David Suzuki and Lester B. Pearson. About 12,000 Canadians participated in the online exercise, which began Dec. 11 and closed last month. A five-part digital form included the question: Which Canadians have inspired you the most over the last 150 years? The Canadian Heritage Department extracted a Top 10 list for an April 29 briefing note for the minister, Shelly Glover. Only one clearly identifiable Conservative appears: Sir John A. Macdonald, Canada’s first prime minister, in eighth place. The list was topped by former Liberal prime minister Pierre Trudeau, followed by marathon-ofhope runner Terry Fox; NDP leader Tommy Douglas; former Liberal prime minister Lester B. Pearson; astronaut Chris Hadfield; environmental activist David Suzuki; NDP leader Jack Layton; Sir. John A.; hockey legend Wayne Gretzky; and Romeo Dallaire, the soldier and Liberal senator who recently announced his resignation. The consultation also asked which of Canada’s accomplishments of the last 150 years “make you most

proud to be a Canadian?” Medicare topped that list, followed by peacekeeping, then the 1982 Charter of Rights and Freedoms at No. 3. The Conservative government, which has recently been buffeted by a series of Charter-based losses at the Supreme Court of Canada, did not mark the 25th anniversary of the Charter in 2007, nor the 30th in 2012. The rest of the accomplishments list, in order: contribution to the Second World War; the Canadarm; multiculturalism; contribution to the First World War; bilingualism; space exploration; and the Constitution Act of 1982. The briefing note and related documents were obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act. Glover said the exercise was simply to consult Canadians about how to celebrate 2017, adding “we have no intention of making a kind of final list.” “Every community is going to have their own personal list. ... We will not be telling people whom they ought to be celebrating.” “The consultations were not partisan in any way shape or form,” she said in an interview from her Winnipeg riding, noting for example that many Canadians do not regard Tommy Douglas as a New Democrat politician but simply as the father of medicare. The government has yet to announce its budget and “overall theme and focus” for the 2017 celebrations.

B.V. Yankees seize Little League title

Ground Eagles By Jim Bailey

Times Sports Editor

With the jaws of defeat nipping at the Beaver Valley Yankees’ heels, the team staged a dramatic last-inning comeback to capture the Trail Little League Major championship trophy on Sunday at Andy Bilesky Park. Allison Schroeder blasted a triple into right field to score the tying and winning runs as the Yankees plated five in the bottom of the sixth inning overcoming a 4-0 deficit on their way to a 5-4 victory over the Trail Eagles. “The kids came through in the crunch,” said Yankees coach Jason Startup. “We were down early, had a lot of things going against us early, but they stuck with it. It’s been our MO all season long and they came through in the end.” Both B.V. and Trail went undefeated through their respective pools with the Eagles beating the Legion in the semifinal in their own dramatic style, scoring two runs in the bottom of the sixth for the 9-8 victory. The Yankees had an easier time of it as they dropped the Nelson Majors 11-1 in the semi to set up the championship game. The Eagles jumped out to a first inning lead after Owen Bartsch knocked in Cooper Ross to give Trail a 1-0 lead. Luc Miracle made it 2-0 with a solo home-run bomb in the second inning and the Eagles looked to be on their way to another league title when Marty Ingram singled in Ross, and Bartsch scored on a fielder’s choice to make it 4-0 Eagles in the fourth inning. Austin Cox came on in relief for the

Yankees, and with the bases loaded was able to force a ground out, and strike out two batters to get out of the inning without further damage. Beaver Valley threatened in the bottom of the fourth when Kayden Sedgwick led off with a walk. Eagles pitcher Nate Ingram caught the next batter swinging for the first out, but Yankee slugger Cox stepped up and drove a screaming line drive to centre. It had triple written all over it after centrefielder Bartsch slipped and looked to be out of the play, but while lying on his back, the versatile fielder somehow snagged the ball, making an unbelievable catch for the second

Markus mines gold in Kamloops By Times Staff Ian Markus’ incredible performance at the Kamloops Classic Swim Meet earlier this month has qualified him for the Zone 1 B.C. Summer Games team. The Trail Regional Aquatic eXcellence (TRAX) swimmer won six gold medals and a bronze in the Boys 11-12-year-old category to finish the event with 392 FINA points. “Ian swam exceptionally well,” said TRAX coach Bill Park. “He swam lights out, and had the overall best TRAX times as well the most FINA points as a 12-year-old. He’s made huge improvements in his 200-metre swims which can be attributed to the work he’s done with coach Eve (Fournier) and all the technical aspects of his strokes from the beginning of the year until now, it just surpasses all expectations.” Markus won gold in 50-metre free and 50-m butterfly, the 100-metre fly, 200 Individual Medley, 200 backstroke, and 200 fly, and took bronze in the 50-m breaststroke. Markus also represented TRAX at the regional training camp and hopes to be selected for the provincial camp as well. In U14 boys and girls, Sam Matthew also shone, winning gold in the 100-m breaststroke and the 200-m IM and placing second in the 50- and 200-m breast, and 100-m back events and third in the 50-m backstoke. Aby Elwood, meanwhile, won bronze with a personal best time and new club record in the 200-m fly event. “It was a really good swim, because she was the youngest of the 13-14 year old girls in the final,” said Park. In U12 girls, Cyan Ross Van Mierlo and Jessica DeBiasio, who joined TRAX this spring to improve their competitive skill sets in a quality program, both qualified for the finals. Ross Van Mierlo, who was an alternate for the 200-m free, broke the in-season club record during the evening final. DeBiasio improved her morning swim personal best time in all the evening finals. “Young swimmers work to improve their skills with TRAX and we promote excellence in the sport of competitive swimming and proper fundamental skills – we are very proud of our junior swimmers and their effort,” said coach Park in a release. In senior girls, Maneet Natt achieved a provincial AA time standard in the 200-m breaststroke during the morning prelims Saturday. Natt and Thryn Irwin improved on their preliminary times in the 50-m back final, scoring points for the TRAX team along with Ella Conliffe, who has the top TRAX time this season in the 50-m fly for her age group and our team. Tenysha Ross-VanMierlo set two new in-season club records for the 50 and 100-m breaststroke, while Kayla Fraser took ten seconds off her best time in the 400-m free event Anyone interested in joining TRAX please email:

Rain fails to dampen B.V. rally

FROM PAGE 11 “That rain delay didn’t help us, but hey, it’s all about positive attitude and keeping them thinking they can win,” added Startup. An hour later, they were back at it and the Yankees didn’t miss a beat. Jesse Ihas kept the rally going with a single into shallow right field that scored Sedgwick. Cox then came up and drove a hard grounder up the middle that took a wicked hop on second baseman Steven Ross, who managed to knock it down and keep the run from scoring but left the potential tying and

winning runs on the corners. With nobody out, the Eagle hurler quickly got up on Schroeder; but with two strikes and one ball, the Fruitvale Elementary school student hung in, fouling off three straight pitches to stay alive. “I just wanted to get the RBIs and was looking for a pitch right at my belt,” said Schroeder. The next pitch was a good high fastball that Schroeder hammered to right field, sailing over the fielder’s head and rolling to the fence, scoring Ihas and Cox for the 5-4 victory. “Super at bat,” said Startup. “She’s been a battler all year, prob-

ably one of our best players throughout the whole season. “She had one of her best at bats at the end and came through with a huge hit, a game winner.” The improbable sixth-inning comeback put a halt to a great run for coaches D. J. Ashman and Mike Boisvert and a Trail Eagles team that had won the past four league championships, and were just three outs away from their fifth. But B.V. has been a force all season, taking 3-of-4 from the Eagles in league play and winning the May Days tournament. Along with the Trail Legion, local teams enjoyed a competitive

parity throughout the season, making for exciting baseball and a memorable championship tournament. “I’m super proud of it, this is a big thing for Beaver Valley baseball, and these kids earned it,” said Startup. “They had a great season right from the beginning. The best part of it is the improvement I’ve seen with these kids all year long. It’s been absolutely fantastic, it came together in the end for us and it couldn’t have been a better finish.” Minor notes: The Trail Minor Little League championship in Nelson was postponed due to rain and will be made up at a later date.

Kings party begins THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

LOS ANGELES The off-season party is in full swing for the Los Angeles Kings. The Kings paraded the Stanley Cup through downtown Los Angeles on Monday to celebrate their second NHL title in three seasons. A raucous contingent of fans lined Figueroa Street as the Kings rode nine double-decker buses and a flatbed truck about one mile to Staples Center. They showed off the Cup, the Campbell Cup and Justin Williams’ Conn Smythe Trophy while confetti flew and fans gave a nonstop standing ovation to the champions. The team gathered at the arena for a soldout rally celebrating the second championship in the Kings 43-year history. The Kings wrapped up the Cup with Alec Martinez’s doubleovertime goal on Friday night, beating the New York Rangers 3-2 to end the finals in five games. Los Angeles has won 10 playoff series while playing 64 postseason games over the past three seasons. “It’s been a pretty incredible experience these last few years,” said Martinez, who also scored the overtime goal that eliminated Chicago. “It’s just as good as the first time. Maybe even better.” The Kings won three consecutive seven-game series to reach the finals, emerging from the tough Western Conference with an overtime victory over Chicago.

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




THE ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES - In a summertime battle of sequels, a pair of kooky cops beat out flying dragons for the top spot at the box office. The R-rated comedy “22 Jump Street” debuted in first place with $60 million, followed by “How to Train Your Dragon 2” which opened with $50 million in ticket sales, according to studio estimates Sunday. “To have two movies that opened to 50-plus, that’s really good,” said Chris Aronson, head of distribution for Fox, which boasts three films in the top 10. “To have a PG-rated, animated film open against a hard R comedy, you gotta love that.” It’s rare for two films to open with such big numbers on the same weekend, said Paul Dergarabedian, senior analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. Dergarabedian notes it has happened three times before: last year when “Monsters University” opened against “World War Z”; in 2012 when “Madagascar 3” opened against “Prometheus”; and in 2008 when “WALL-E” opened against “Wanted.” The original versions of “Dragon” and “Jump Street” were springtime releases, and their strong performances then led studios to offer sequels during the hot movie-going months of summer. “When a studio has ultimate confidence in something, they will put it in that gladiator arena that is the summer season,” Dergarabedian said. “A sequel in the summer is like graduating.” Sony’s “Jump Street” stars Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as bumbling undercover officers who pose as college students to bust a campus drug dealer. Hill also lends a voice to the animated “Dragon,” the Fox feature that follows Hiccup and his winged dragon Toothless on an adventure where they discover hundreds of wild dragons and a mysterious dragon master. Disney’s “Maleficent” claimed third place in its third week of release. Warner Bros.’ Tom Cruise action romp “Edge of Tomorrow” took the fourth spot, followed by last week’s top film, Fox’s teen tear-jerker “The Fault in Our Stars.”

of our marriages and our children, we went back to our spouses. That was mainly his choice, and although I hung on his every word with disappointment, I agreed. It’s been a year since my husband and I reconciled, and I stopped speaking to the other man. But I wake up with him on my mind, and he’s in my thoughts 24/7. What’s wrong with me? -- Guilty Conscience Dear Guilty: It’s understandable that you miss the way the other man made you feel, especially because your marriage still seems shaky. However, you have made a com-

readers to know that the headlines, good or bad, are written by someone at your local newspaper. This is not an easy assignment. We think these folks do an outstanding job, and we’d like to take this opportunity to thank them. Of course, that doesn’t mean an occasional mistake doesn’t slip through. If the mistakes happen frequently, you can write or phone your newspaper and mention it. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Concerned Grandparents,” who complained that their daughter and her husband are poor housekeepers. I have high standards of cleanliness, but am completely unable to attain them. My mother-in-law is horrified that our home is not pristine. I have five children. Imagine the clutter: shoes, coats, sports equipment, you name

it! We also have pets and farm animals. We do not have many closets, and we do our best to have organizational systems. There is certainly no mold or bugs, but life is exhausting, and we are trying to enjoy some of it. “Concerned” says

that her daughter does not invite people into her home. I wonder whether the daughter got tired of being berated and stopped inviting the in-laws. That’s what happened to me. I would recommend that “Concerned” be more understanding of

the situation and perhaps take the kids for an outing so that the parents have a chance to organize without mess-makers underfoot. My kids are learning to clean, but it certainly isn’t up to my mother-in-law’s standards. -- Busy Mom

Dear Annie: I have been married for four years. In that time, we have split up twice, and it wasn’t pretty either time. We have kids together. I pushed getting married when I became pregnant at 19. Then he claimed to fall out of love with me, stopped coming home after work and began treating me like his maid. So I left and took our child. He followed me and swore he’d do better. The second time we split, we fought so much that things were being thrown, and our throats were sore from screaming at each other. For the (now two) kids’ sake, I said we can’t keep fighting and left again. Here’s the problem now. While we were separated, I fell deeply in love with a married man. We would talk about our troubled lives and build each other up. Every time I see him, the feeling is like thunder in my heart. But for the sake
