Free tax preparation offered for low income earners Sheri Regnier West Kootenay Advertiser

Seniors, students and low income earners take note — number crunchers have pencils sharpened, ready to do your taxes for free. The Community Volunteer Income Tax Program is a collaboration between the Canada Revenue Agency and local organizations with an objective to help eligible taxpayers who need help preparing and filing income tax and benefit returns. To qualify for the free service, individual income must be under $30,000; family earnings less than $40,000; and for a single parent with one child, $35,000 with $2,500 allowed for each individual child. Free tax clinics run five days a week until April 30 from 9 to 11 a.m,. throughout Greater Trail, starting with the Trail Seniors Centre (Greater Trail Community Centre) on Mondays; Tuesday at Kate’s Kitchen on Rossland Ave.; and Wednesdays at the Trail FAIR Society on Columbia Ave. The program then moves to the Beaver Valley Manor on Laurier Ave. in Fruitvale on Thursdays, then every Friday, volunteers will

be on site in Rossland at the Esling Park Lodge on Spokane St. In the Nelson area, the Nelson and District Seniors Coordinating Society runs the program year round with appointment or by drop-off at 719 Vernon St. on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. until noon. For information call 250-352-6008, email sencoord@netidea.com, or visit the Canada Revenue website at cra-arc. gc.ca. People accessing the program are asked to bring all slips including T3s, T4s, T5s and receipts for medical expenses, child arts and recreational programs, charitable donations, as well as a copy of the previous year’s return. All information is confidential and once the tax return is electronically filed, the computers are wiped clean (information is not stored year-to-year). Interviews are on a first-come-firstserve basis. For more information, visit trailtimes.ca and click on the calendar link for a listing of dates, times, and contact information for the program. In Greater Trail, the program has been running for about a decade, and over that period, saved countless individual and families from los-

ing a portion of their tax return to processing fees. “I chose to volunteer for the program because there are a lot of people who don’t have the money to pay to have their returns done,” says Elaine Jones, a fouryear program member. “It could be $60 bucks, which might not sound like a huge fee, but they just don’t have it. “Last year, I did 100 returns,” Jones said. “Another volunteer did 100, and the other three volunteers each completed 35. So we are doing quite a few as the message gets out.” Jones maintains that often low income earners, and people on assistance, don’t feel empowered to file a yearly tax return. That outlook is changing somewhat, she explained, because if the annual income tax forms are not filed, then the person won’t receive benefits such as GST and climate control rebate cheques, a guaranteed income supplement, or child tax benefits. “I have the program back to 2005,” she noted. “So if anybody comes in with eight or even 10 years of taxes, I can do that for them. I can get them all caught up so they can start receiving the rebate cheques they are entitled to.”

Persons with investment income well in excess of $1,000, capital gains/losses, partnership income, rental income, business or professional income, farming or fishing income, or anyone with complex deductions may be deemed ineligible for this service. Additionally, the program is unable to prepare final returns for deceased persons, and other limitations may apply. By the last day of tax season, Canadians will spend between $4 billion and $5.8 billion preparing and filing personal income tax returns, with the average cost per person being $215, according to a study by the Fraser Institute. Regardless of income level, along with tax season come the tax scams that can bring a heap of trouble to anyone filing a return. The Trail RCMP Crime Prevention Office is asking ratepayers to be on the lookout for the scams that can enter households through a telephone line or via email. Police are warning people in the area to steer clear of emails that look like they are from the Canadian Revenue Agency and especially don’t open attachments or click links within the email.

Canada Revenue Agency does not contact taxpayers through email and wouldn’t request information they should already have. “Typically, these messages advise the recipient that they have qualified for a tax refund and need to click a link to enter their information,” notes Gordon Sims from the Crime Prevention Office in Trail.

Good hearing, poor comprehension? The number of people who can hear well, but can’t understand what’s being said, is increasing. This is most evident in conversations and watching television. A newlydeveloped hearing chip is designed to restore speech comprehension without being noticeable in the ear.

A lot of people have poor comprehension, though they actually still hear well. It becomes noticeable in conversation, watching television and asking family to repeat what’s been said. A potential cause can be undetected loss in the high-frequency range. This means the sensory cells in the cochlea that hear high-range sounds are damaged as a result of circulatory disorders, diabetes, sudden hearing loss or workplace noise. Hearing loss in the highfrequency range makes speech sound muffled and unclear. The person with hearing loss mixes up, or can no longer hear, consonants like s, f, t, k, h and g. Speech comprehension is particularly impaired when there is background noise or when television programs have background music. The dilemma is that people with hearing loss in the high-frequency range do not

They can hear deep tones with no issue, and often put difficulty understanding speech down to unclear pronunciation. However, the time soon comes when problems with comprehension become annoying. A new hearing chip has been developed.

and speech comprehension analysis is done. Where inner-ear damage is present, a software program analyzes the difference relative to normal hearing. These values are then input into the new Venture hearing chip in the Audéo V, which precisely takes into account and balances the frequency range of the person being tested. The test phase in particular is designed to clarify how speech comprehension can be improved in various situations and what role a new technology called “Autosense OS” plays. The chip recognizes where the person being spoken to is located and amplifies only his or her voice, while ambient noise is lowered and the optimum hearing programs are seamlessly adjusted. Thanks to several synchronous microphones, the hearing system can detect sound in all directions and select the direction that speech is coming from within milliseconds. According to Swiss researchers, this significantly augments speech comprehension, especially in conversation.

Swiss audiologists have developed a new hearing chip that restores speech comprehension, particularly with hearing loss in the high-frequency range.

The Nissan LEAF miraculously cut a journey in half this week. I’ll explain. I took the plug-in sedan on a 43-kilometre trip from Vancouver to Driveway HQ, on 152nd Street, in Surrey. When I set out, the screen display showed that I could drive emission-free for 146 kilometres. Now I could have taken off like an F1 supercar and street raced all the way, because electric power offers instant tire squealing torque if you press the pedal to the metal. But that’s not me. Spurred by my ecofriendly driving the previous day, the clever car had decided earlier in the day that I could do 156 kilometres on a full charge. Not boasting but that’s easily more than 20 kilometres better than the average driver can expect to achieve. Okay, maybe my head

is swelling. The big 1-4-6 winked at me. I threw the stick into ECO mode and with two flicks of the wrist pushed it into the enhanced B-mode, which puts the braking power regeneration into overdrive, so to speak. I glided silently down the road, picking up pace ever so gradually in the busy city traffic. Rolling down the hills to Marpole, I could feel the juice from the brakes topping up that battery. On the freeway, I hit the posted speed limit and 40 minutes later pulled into HQ. The display flashed 126. I had covered 43 klicks with the power required to move the car just 20! Such fun. Next week: More on the joy of driving electric.

Taking the stress out of towing a trailer By Ian Harwood

Towing a trailer just might be one of the most stressful driving situations for some truck owners. For one thing, it is not easy to manouevre around corners and change lanes with that extra length behind your truck. Backing up can be challenging. And towing up a steep hill can be tough on your truck. Whether you tow a boat, car, snowmobiles, or motorcycles, custom truck accessories can make towing less nervewracking. Don’t Tow Too Much Weight Pulling too much weight can be very dangerous. Check your owner’s manual to find your vehicle’s towing capacity, including the maximum gross trailer weight

+

and tongue weight it can handle. Tongue weight is the downward force exerted on the hitch ball by the trailer coupler. In most cases, it is about 10 to 15 percent of gross trailer weight. Tongue weight of up to 300 pounds can be measured on a household scale by resting the trailer coupler on the scale and placing the scale on a box so that the coupler is at its normal towing height. The trailer must be fully loaded and level. Use the Right Hitch and Other Equipment Just as each vehicle has a maximum towing capacity so too does each trailer hitch, hitch ball, ball mount and safety chain. To tow safely, make sure every component you use is ready to handle the weight of your fully loaded trailer. Remember, your towing capacity is equal to the capacity of the

weakest link in the system. Choosing a Trailer Hitch All trailer hitches feature a class rating, as well as a weight rating, so be sure the hitch can accommodate the loaded trailer. For instance, Reese Class 2 (avg $159) hitches have a maximum rated capacity of 350 pounds tongue weight and 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight. Class IV (avg $175) receiver-style hitches have a maximum capacity of 1,200 pounds tongue weight and 12,000 pounds gross trailer weight. If you need more towing capacity than the traditional receiver-style weight distributing hitch, then you need to step up to a fifth-wheel or gooseneck hitch. Prices start at $650.

Stress out of towing a trailer continued from page A8

‘‘

Remember, your towing capacity is equal to the capacity of the weakest link in the system.

Ian Harwood

’’

Choosing a Hitch Ball If you have a drawbar style hitch, the hitch ball usually is built right into it. But if you have a receiver-style hitch, you’ll need to choose your own hitch ball. Like vehicles and trailer hitches, hitch balls also are assigned a maximum tongue weight and gross trailer weight rating. Hitch balls are made from a variety of materials, and some are available in a choice of finishes, including chrome. They cost about $12 to $14. The hitch ball diameter must be the same diameter as the trailer coupler (1 7/8 inches, 2 inches or 2 5/16 inches). The shank diameter of the hitch ball should be the same as the hole diameter in the ball mount.

The shank length should be long enough to allow at least two threads to be visible when the hitch ball is installed and the nut completely tightened. Load Your Trailer Properly Rule of thumb is roughly two-thirds (60 to 66 percent) of the gross load weight should be positioned toward the front half of the trailer. Place large or heavy objects on the trailer first. Tie these objects down securely and from several angles to ensure they do not shift. Pack remaining items in a manner that maintains balance of the trailer. Once the trailer is loaded, double-check the positioning and stability of the cargo. Better safe than sorry. ian.harwood@drivewaybc.ca

Our Parts

Ian Harwood has been involved in the light truck industry for the past 30 years. His career started with the opening of a small 4-wheel drive shop in the early 80s. This shop was involved in custom fabrication, complete 4x4 rebuilds, and sales of off-road related products. This would prepare him for his current position as Manager for Custom Truck Parts, one of the largest accessory warehouses in Canada. Ian started his journalism career in the late 1090s with a column in a national magazine for automotive enthusiasts. In the spring of 2005 Ian was approached by a local news outlet to write a weekly column. Wilderness exploring, fishing and four wheeling have been his passion since he was a teenager. Some memorable moments in Ian’s career are flying in by hto the famous Rubicon Trail in Northern California and driving a 2007 Jeep Wrangler out of the backwoods, up a waterfall and out of the trail to Lake Tahoe.

For as long as Alexandra Straub recalls, she has loved cars. She can even remember thinking at the age of six, “Only ten more years until I can get my licence!” Born in Zurich, Switzerland to Hungarian parents, she moved to Canada when she was just a baby. Spending her summers in Budapest with her grandparents helped cultivate a strong liking for motorsports. Alexandra can remember watching F1 races with her grandfather, and still does even when she goes to visit. Over a decade ago, Alexandra started her career in the automotive industry. Since then, she has had countless stories and photos published. You can find her work online, in newspapers, magazines and on television. She has hosted “Shifting Gears Automotive TV” and regularly makes appearances on various shows talking about, you guessed it, all things automotive. When she’s not testing out the latest in vehicular goodness, you’ll either find her on a motorcycle (she tests and writes about those, too), on a track or traveling the world. While she considers her “job” her hobby, Alexandra enjoys other activities that don’t necessarily involve wheels, engines or motors. Growing up on the North Shore of Vancouver, she loves the mountains and the ocean. An avid snowboarder and a wannabe surfer, count on her enjoying the outdoors when she has the chance. And to really help her relax, she scrapbooks. Share your thoughts and requests with Alexandra at alexandra.straub@drivewaybc.ca

SOCIAL WORK WEEK IN BRITISH COLUMBIA CELEBRATES THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE SOCIAL WORKER

drivewayBC.ca

Drives-U-Crazy Driving a very quiet electric Nissan LEAF offers an entirely fresh perspective on driving, particularly when it comes to interactions with pedestrians. I’m used to seeing smart phone texters walking out onto the road without even

looking up, relying on their hearing to warn them of oncoming vehicles. Boy, do they freak when they suddenly encounter a silent LEAF at the corner! What drives-u-crazy? keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

ICBC Safety Tip You’re four times more likely to crash if you’re on your phone. Leave it alone when you’re on the road and watch for pedestri-

ans and cyclists. Police across the province are cracking down on distracted drivers this month.

The provincial government has declared March 8th – 14th Social Work Week in British Columbia, and social workers throughout BC have planned activities that will highlight their essential contribution to the health and well-being of British Columbians. Social workers provide their services in hospitals, child welfare programs, community service agencies, family service centres, mental health clinics, rehabilitation centres, community action programs, schools and universities, correctional institutions, long term care homes, alcohol and drug treatment programs, hospices and employee assistance programs. They make substantial contributions to social policy and research. And hundreds of Registered Social Workers in BC provide private practice clinical counselling services. Social workers continue to make the world a better place, one person, one family, one challenge at a time. Take time to acknowledge and celebrate the social workers you know!

Cruising with Tom Cruise By Nick Gravlin

Hollywood star Tom Cruise has driven dozens of cars in his 40-plus movies. Here are the top five coolest cars featured in movies: “Vanilla Sky”: In this reality warping, romantic drama, Tom plays David Aames — the head of a New York publishing firm with access to whatever he pleases. In the opening scene, Cruise drives a Ferrari 250 GTO replica through a deserted New York City, ultimately ending in Times Square. Aames’ daily driver throughout the film is a1967 Ford Mustang, and after he falls in love with a different woman, his ex-girlfriend Julie (played by Cameron Diaz) tries to kill them both by driving off a bridge in her 1970 Buick Skylark. “Rain Man”: After his father’s death, Charlie Babbitt (played by Cruise), a grey market sports car dealer (seen importing  Countaches  in the film’s opening), flies home to Ohio to settle the estate. After learning he has an older brother, Raymond (Dustin Hoffman), who is inheriting the full estate, the two set out on a cross-country road trip back to California in their father’s  1949 Buick Roadmaster. “Jack Reacher”: Tom plays Jack Reacher, an ex-Army MP who is investigating the murder of five innocent victims of a sniper shooting. The real highlight of the film is a six-minute car chase in

1949 Buick Roadmaster: A 1949 Buick Roadmaster very similar to this one was used in the filming of “Rain Man”

which Cruise drives a 1970 Chevelle SS. He tries his best to chase down an Audi A6 while being pursued by police. The driving stunts are of quite a remarkable quality; especially considering Cruise did all of his own driving throughout the movie. “Risky Business”: In this 1983 darkcomedy drama, Tom Cruise plays Joel Goodson, a high school student living with wealthy parents in suburban Chicago. His parents go away on a trip, giving Joel strict orders to not touch the stereo system or his father’s 1979 Porsche 928. Joel’s unruly friend convinces him otherwise, leading Joel into a downward spiral of trouble that includes a car chase in

the Porsche, and later some major water damage. “War of the Worlds”: Cruise plays Ray Ferrier, a divorced dockworker in New York City. His pride and joy seems to be his 1966 Shelby GT350H rather than his two kids — this all changes after an alien invasion of Earth. The probability of an alien invasion seems just as unlikely as a decidedly unmotivated N.Y. dockworker owning such a rare car as a Shelby! – But then this is the movies.

How to safely navigate wet roadways Spring showers certainly may bring flower laters on, but they also contribute to challenging driving conditions. Early spring weather can be fickle, vacillating between dry, wet and even icy conditions. Drivers need to remain on their toes to safely traverse roadways near and far. Wet roadways and poor driving conditions contribute to thousands of road accidents each and every year. As roads get wet, oil and other substances rise to the surface of the pavement, which can quickly become slippery and compromise the traction offered by tires. According to the United States Department of Transportation, there are around 707,000 automobile crashes each year due to rain. Heavy rains also may lead to puddles, which can obscure hazards on the roadway. Cars may stall out in puddles or hydroplane, which occurs when cars coast

along the surface of the water. Puddles also can be splashed by oncoming cars, leading to visibility issues. It is in every driver’s best interest to use caution when driving on wet roads. The following tips can help prevent accidents, injuries and even fatalities during the rainy season. · Slow down. Drivers should drive slower when roads are wet and when rain compromises visibility. It can take up to three times longer to stop on a wet road than a dry one. By slowing down you will be able to stop or veer out of the way of danger. · Leave room. When driving on wet roads, leave more room between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Again, this plays into stopping distance. Tailgating increases your risk of rear-ending a vehicle if you cannot stop in time on a wet roadway. · Stay alert. It can be easy to be lulled into compla-

cency while driving. But staying alert and conscious of every detail going on around you can reduce your risk of accident when driving in less than ideal conditions. · Skip cruise control. As a driver, you want to remain in control of acceleration and speed, rather than leaving it up to the cruise control system. If you begin to hydroplane on cruise control, the car may actually speed up. · Use your headlights. Headlights can light up the road in front of you, helping illuminate potential hazards. Lights on a car also make your vehicle more visible to others on the road. Always turn on the headlights in inclement weather. · Avoid jerky movements. Keep a steady pace and the vehicle in control. Jerking the wheel or accelerating and braking in a erratic fashion can cause the vehicle to spin out or skid on wet roads.

· Check your tires. Inspect your tires for tread wear and air pressure. Tires should be rotated as part of routine maintenance. Poorly performing tires are a significant safety risk. If you live in an area known for a lot of rain, invest in tires designed for wet road conditions. Don’t let wet weather get the best of you. Slow down, stay visible and be on the alert.

Be a hero. Get zero.

Place names

Duncan post office was renamed Howser Greg Nesteroff West Kootenay Advertiser

Eighty-ninth in an alphabetical series on West Kootenay/ Boundary place names Last week we began looking at the origins of Howser, one of the most puzzling and convoluted local place names. We got as far as April 23, 1900 when W.D. Mackay surveyed a new townsite on Lot 528 for William Simpson and Shirley Keeling, previously known as Duncan City. This time they called it Hauser. The streets were Spokane, Nelson, Kaslo, Denver, Slocan, Lardo, Duncan, Water, Simpson, Shirley, Keeling, Sandon, Hall, Reno, Abbey, Ward, Forbes, Nagle, and Wallace. The lone avenue was called Hauser, as was the lake shown on the map. Why was this spelling used instead of the far more common Howser? Paul and Marion Howser of Reigate, Surrey, England have given this a lot of thought during a more than 30-year search for answers. Their best guess is that it was to help secure the terminus for the Great Northern Railway’s Kaslo and LardoDuncan line — the townsite

plan shows the proposed railway passing through the town. However, it was never built. The Great Northern was familiar with the spelling Hauser because it had a station at Hauser Junction in northern Idaho (which we’ll discuss further in the next installment). Simpson and Keeling used the spelling Hauser despite the fact the post office had been renamed Howser only four months earlier. The postal application, submitted in June 1899, was under the name Duncan. It was approved and opened on Sept. 1 of that year, but William Simpson, originally proposed as postmaster, was passed over in favor of W.V. Bradshaw. The postmaster general soon complained “that inconvenience has been caused by the similarity of the name of the Duncan post office, recently established … to that of the Duncan’s Station post office.” The Nelson Tribune of March 12, 1900 commented: “It seems that the post office officials can’t see the difference between Duncans on Vancouver Island and Duncan City up the lake. Sometimes the letters to the island place come up here and vice
