Our national anthem says its all. Our country is 'The True North strong and free' – and that applies to all Canadians. People are free to live wherever they choose and free to make their own choices, medical and otherwise. “People are allowed to live at risk,” says Cheryl Whittleton from Interior Health. “Gone are the days when you could tie somebody up, lock them up, and throw away the key. Mental health patients have rights and we treat everyone with respect and dignity.”

Her words introduce the third report of a three-part series in what began as a conversation about mental health patients and a frustrating disconnect between hospital care and community outreach in Trail. Whether it's in a coffee shop, on city streets or overheard in a salon, concerns are being voiced about what's perceived as a growing number of homeless, mentally ill and addicted individuals relocating to the city. Mostly, people share that they are troubled by newcomers with serious mental illnesses, who are not being adequately managed by community outreach.

Seeking facts along with narrative, the Trail Times talked with community services, city officials and contacted Interior Health, asking for details of the role each entity plays in managing those with ongoing afflictions. “I think it's important to note that there is a regional in-patient psych unit at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH),” explained Whittleton, Kootenay Boundary's community integrated health services administrator. “Folks from the whole region are transferred there for the acute phase (of treatment).” When patients are discharged

from the Daly Pavilion, most return to their home community because that's where the family support is as well as other medical services, she added. “If they chose to stay in Trail, then that is their choice.” She says Trail has the same number of community clients as other regional municipalities, and those outlying areas do have mental health outreach services in place. “We do have outreach all the way to Rock Creek, and we have services in Nakusp, New Denver, Salmo, and a contractor in Kaslo,” Whittleton explained.

Intervention cannot be forced

FROM PAGE 1 “And we are very fortunate because the psychiatrists who live in Kootenay Boundary and support the Daly Pavilion also travel to our rural communities to make sure mental health clients are seen in their home community.” Nurses including a nurse practitioner, social workers, life skills resources and outreach support, work together as a team in Nelson and Trail, Whittleton continued. “Sometimes mental health clients can’t find a GP for a number of reasons, so we have a full time nurse practitioner they can come and see. She specifically looks after people with mental health issues.” Unless a person is having an acute psychiatric break and a threat to him/herself or others, intervention cannot be forced on anyone. “If they are having an acute episode, it’s important wherever they are, that people call 9-1-1,” said Whittleton. “Then the police can take them, and take them to the hospital to have an acute assessment.” Another critical IH resource is the urgent response team. Two mental health nurses based out of KBRH are available seven days a week, during the day, to respond to calls from the community, says Lynn Miller, manager of acute and tertiary services, mental health and substance use. Generally, those calls come from IH community mental health staff or local police. “These nurses would also support mental health patients in the emergency department in accessing services and supports that may help them avoid an admission to hospital,” Miller clarified. “This is part of broader funding from our community mental health portfolio.” Yes, people are brought to Trail for regional inpatient psychiatric care, says Miller. “But we do not relocate individuals to Trail based on mental health services here. As is the case with other regional services offered at KBRH, patients receive service and would return to their own communities,” she

Tara DeJong, Hall's Basics manager, kicked off the Coins for Change fundraiser Thursday afternoon, being the first to drop dollars into the campaign's newly constructed donation house. The Coins house will be at the downtown retail store until Sept. 30 for anyone wishing to contribute to Trail's Getting to Home program. said. “If an individual elects to move to Trail on their own and needs mental health services, our priority would be to make sure they have access to those services.” That means referrals to mental health are made upon discharge and resources are available if a patient opts to access the services. If not, that is their choice. “If people chose not to come then they are allowed to make that decision for themselves,” said Whittleton. “And if they are not deemed to be a danger to themselves and others then they cannot be committed under the Mental Health Act. They are allowed to make their own choices and rights need to be respected.”

FREE SIGHT TESTING some restrictions apply

So there it is. Acute and community mental health services are available in the Trail community. But the latter will only work if a person willingly partakes in ongoing treatment – everyone has the right of free will. The series has come full circle, and returns to the perspective of the Downtown Trail Business Group (DTBG). By writing a letter to Trail council, the DTBG effectively opened a much-needed discussion about the city’s most vulnerable, falling through the cracks. The group works downtown and some even call the inner city, home. First hand accounts of daily goings-on and the 24/7 problems they deal with, started the conver-

sation. Factually, police are on call around the clock and day time IH staff are available to respond to calls of concern from the community. But no one can be forced into ongoing medical care. That brings the report to the second in the series. The focus was Career Development Services (CDS), and how the organization fits into the bigger picture of engaging those requiring progressive medical treatment. Therein lies one key component in Trail that can help a person’s road to recovery, regardless the affliction. Getting to Home, which hosts its annual Coins for Change fundraiser today, is managed through CDS. The program, a joint venture between the service and the Skills Centre, helps people living with mental health problems and illnesses find and/or maintain housing. Trail council addressed the resource this week, agreeing to grant the program $15,000 and possibly another $5,000 in 2016. Safe housing is the first step in helping people with mental health problems, according to the Mental Health Commission of Canada, an organization that spent $110 million researching the connection between managing mental illness and housing. (The ‘At Home/Chez Soi’ study can be viewed at mentalhealthcommission.ca) A house is not just a home, the commission avers, it’s a catalyst for recovery. Early findings reveal some participants are reconnecting with family and have a sense of safety and hope for the future. Some are even working, volunteering and going back to school. So this report gives final words to Coun. Sandy Santori, who spoke during Trail council’s discussion about funding the homelessness program. “The message should be clear that no task force, no bodies out there, nor would we ever have the resources, to eliminate this issue,” he said. “But what we can do, is support it.”

Bowling club takes over lanes By Valerie Rossi Times Staff

There is a new kingpin running The Beaver Valley Lanes in Fruitvale. The Beaver Valley Bowling Club met last night to discuss how they will manage the alley as a nonprofit club. The keys were passed over from the Village of Fruitvale after the “break-even” facility was suffering. “The trick is whether or not they can actually have enough usage to cover the operational costs,” said Lila Cresswell, village chief administrative officer. The village facility was formerly

run by manager Kris MacGillivray. But after years of her service, the Fruitvale resident gave her notice. “It really wasn’t enough to make a job for somebody and we’ve been lucky, we had the same manager for the last five years” added Cresswell. The hope is this new model will bring in some money and keep bowling rolling locally. “Obviously there is a demand because these people got together, and they’ve created a bowling club and they’re going to try and run it,” she added. Council will reevaluate the project this winter and decide whether this model is a strike.

OBITUARIES FUNERAL NOTICES In Loving Memory of

Michael

Joseph Gaines 1937 - 2015

Michael Gaines passed away on the morning of September 16, 2015 at Overlander Care Facility, Kamloops, BC. Mike was born on September 8, 1937 in Trail, British Columbia. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Maureen; son Tim from Edmonton, Alberta; daughter Michelle of Swindon, England; and grandchildren Kaylee, Taryn, Rhys, Liam and Lara. Michael was predeceased by his sister Mary of Trail, British Columbia; brothers Bill of Sacramento, California, and Tom of Trail, British Columbia. Mike was a carpenter. He enjoyed darts, curling and watching a good sporting event. There was also nothing like going for a good walk with family or friends. Mike will be remembered for his gentle nature, kind heart and bright smile. He always had time for a chat (and a beer). Staff at Overlander and the people who knew him found he was always a gentleman and ready to help others. In his working life as a carpenter, it was difficult to find another who worked harder than he did. In his home life, he was a caring and devoted husband to Maureen, a gentle and supportive father to Tim and Michelle and a loving and warm grandfather to his five grandchildren.

from 10:00-11:00 at the Trail Library. For ages 3-5 years For more info contact Darcee: dohearn@traillibrary.com 250.364.1731

Mike has had to face more than his fair share of adversities in his life and those that knew him admired him for his inner strength to cope and work through them. This stubborn strength was seen right to the very end. He has touched many lives deeply with his endearing spirit. He will forever live in our hearts. Rest in peace my husband, my father, my brother and my friend. There will be a service to remember Mike on Saturday, September 19, 2015 at the Catholic Church of Saint George in Barriere, British Columbia at 4:30pm. In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Alzheimer’s Association of British Columbia.

Elkford

Fording mine expansion moves forward By Trevor Crawley Cranbrook Townsman

The provincial government has approved an environmental assessment certificate (EAC) to Teck Coal for a proposed expansion at the Fording River operations. The Swift project, an expansion roughly 20 kilometres north of Elkford, is estimated to produce 170 million tonnes of coal over the next 25 years. The EAC carries 19 conditions, which were developed following consultation with the Ktunaxa Nation Council, government agencies, communities and the public. Key conditions of the EAC include: • Hire an independent environmental monitor to audit whether Teck is complying with the conditions in the environmental assessment certificate; • Construct and operate water treatment plants at Fording River Operations in accordance with the timeframe and specifications set out in the Elk Valley Water Quality Plan; • Develop management plans to monitor and mitigate effects on wild-

life, fish and fish habitat, air quality and noise, public access, and water, as well as effects from invasive plants; • Develop and implement a plan that will address the recommendations of the Westslope Cutthroat Trout population study in the upper Fording River (when that study is completed early in 2016); • Establish an advisory group to provide scientific, technical and Aboriginal advice on strategies to evaluate and reduce impacts on biodiversity from this and other projects operated by Teck in the Elk Valley; and • Collaborate with the Ktunaxa Nation to ensure protection of Ktunaxa’s cultural and heritage values, obtain input regarding ecological values, and support Ktunaxa’s participation in economic opportunities associated with the project. “Receipt of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Certificate is a significant milestone for Fording River Swift, the next phase of mining for our Fording River Operations,” said Ian Kilgour, Executive Vice President and Chief

Operating Officer. Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett, the Minister of Energy and Mines, along with Mary Polak, the Minister of Environment, jointly approved the EAC for Teck Coal after the Environmental Assessment Office reviewed the company’s application. The Swift project will require various federal, provincial and local government permits to proceed. The Environmental Assessment Office will co-ordinate compliance management efforts with other government agencies to ensure that the office is satisfied that certificate conditions are met throughout the life of the project. The Swift expansion will utilize existing infrastructure at Fording River Operations, however, initial construction costs are estimated at $88.5 million with an operating cost of roughly $16.9 billion. Teck expects to maintain roughly 1000-full time- equivalent employees at the existing Fording River Operations with 300-500 full-time jobs during construction.

Grand Forks

City workers upset over possible cuts By Craig Lindsay Grand Forks Gazette

Respect. That was the bolded wording on the signs held up by about 15 people at a packed council meeting on Monday at City Hall. The protesters were upset that the city is cutting three full-time union positions. The city issued a press release on Sept. 10 saying, “The City of Grand Forks recognized the organization was facing very real financial challenges and has since made a commitment to asset management that will help put the city in a sustainable

financial position.” The release announced eight steps towards achieving financial sustainability including: 1. Reducation in some levels of service; 2. Reduction of FTE’s (full-time equivalent positions/jobs); 3. Increase in revenues i.e. moderate tax increase; and increases (moderate) in electrical, water and sewer rates. The FTEs have turned out to be three full-time CUPE positions in the city possibly including the local union (CUPE 4728) president Sukie Lawrence according to a press release sent out

Tuesday by CUPE. All 32 Grand Forks municipal workers were on hand for the meeting holding up signs which read “Grand Forks city workers want a workplace built on RESPECT…not on recriminations and revenge — A message from CUPE 4728.” Council did not bring up the staffing or cutbacks during the meeting. In the union’s press release, Lawrence said, “Eliminating the positions without layoff and recall rights contravenes the collective agreement between

the city and its unionized workers. We believe the cuts may have more to do with the poisoned workplace at the City of Grand Forks than with financial considerations.” Lawrence had spoken directly to the Gazette after the meeting and said the union members received a letter on Friday stating that three positions would be cut, although no names were mentioned. He said the three positions outlined in the letter were: parks maintenance 3, water and sewer operator 2, and one that is currently vacant but the union is grieving.

City aims to revitalize Silver City Days

W

e, the Mayor and Council of the City of Trail, would like to welcome all persons interested in being a part of the revitalization of Silver City Days to contact City Hall or your council representatives. A new committee, chaired by Councillor Sandy Santori, has been created to coordinate the annual festival. In addition to City Council and staff who will be working on the details of Silver City Days, interested volunteers are required to assist and support the event. Silver City Days is vital to our community spirit as this event gives us the opportunity to celebrate and show that we are proud of Trail, its diversity and what the City represents. By taking this community event to the next level, Silver City Days can be used as a catalyst to promote the City and create economic opportunities for business and non- profit organizations. The committee will focus on celebrating our community heritage and cultural diversity as well as incorporating more interactive activities and events for people of all ages. We welcome all interested cit-

izens to join our team of volunteers and we welcome all your wonderful ideas, which will assist in making Silver City Days the best family-friendly event that Trail can offer. We would like to thank the Trail Festival Society for their past coordination and management of this City-funded event and we have extended an invitation to members of the Society to join this new organization should they wish to continue contributing in a volunteer capacity. More information on the volunteer positions will be provided in the the coming weeks as early planning of the committee and event structure takes place. Not only is the City committed to enhancing our community through planned events, we remain committed to infrastructure improvements and continuing our downtown revitalization activities. Over the past month, since rejecting the pipeline/pedestrian bridge tender bids after they significantly exceeded the earlier estimates and budget, we have been working diligently with our regional partners, Warfield and Rossland, along with the low bid contractor, Graham Infrastructure LP, and the

Community Comment bridge designer, Buckland & Taylor to find a solution which would allow the project to proceed. Through these efforts, we’ve found a solution which will address the matter of removing the sewer line from the condemned Old Bridge to a new pipeline/pedestrian bridge which represents tremendous value in terms of the reduced pricing that has been advanced by the low bid tender. We’re in the process of finalizing the necessary requirements for the loan authorization bylaw to allow the Regional District to borrow an additional $3 million on behalf of the partners. In the meantime, the province has provided conditional approval on the awarding of the contract to Graham Infrastructure LP subject to a condition of

public consultation. Each community scheduled the appropriate meeting for its constituents; the City of Trail held its public consultation meeting on Thursday in the Council Chambers to discuss the details of the project. At the time of this article being published, Graham Infrastructure LP will be mobilizing their workforce and final steps for the loan authorization should be in place. The City and its partners would like to thank the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary, as well as the Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, Peter Fassbender, and his staff for assisting in bringing about an expeditious approach to a process which under normal circumstances could take months to just a few days. Everyone recognized the urgency and the value being created through a quick resolution. The issue of homelessness in Trail has come to the forefront once again due to the awareness brought to this issue by the Downtown Business Group. Our community is not unique in facing this challenge as this problem goes well beyond our City and region. Council

has committed to pulling together a task force which will gather the necessary facts on the scope of homelessness in our community as well as determine avenues by which the problem can be adequately addressed. Having solid facts and information on homelessness in our City will help us not only determine what we can do but as importantly more effectively engage active support from the Province and Government of Canada to establish long-term systemic change. In closing, we want to extend the thanks of the City to all the firefighters, BC Wildfire Service, Red Cross, Salvation Army, Emergency Response Coordination Center personnel, and others who assisted in so many ways in dealing with the forest fires which impacted so many over this past summer. Community Comment is an opportunity for elected officials from our local municipalities to update citizens in the region on the events, plans and progress in their respective communities. Every Friday, the Trail Times will present, on a rotating basis, a submission from councils, school trustees or regional district directors.

Letters & Opinion Letters to the editor

Offer to test Old Bridge rejected

I delivered a letter to Mayor Mike Martin to prepare the Old Bridge for service by cars and trucks. I offered to drive my 2007 Chev Impala model, weighing 3,500 lbs, followed by a few friends with trucks and cars. Good test.

The sidewalk of steel remains a good sidewalk and should never have been closed. In fact, the Old Bridge should never have been closed. When the construction company from Calgary comes to build our new pipe and pedestrian bridge, they are going to

need our Old Bridge and will use it. City Hall will give them the keys to the bridge I guarantee you. Let’s test it for them now and have it open. Mayor Martin rejected my offer. John Carter Trail

Hooray, a surplus. Now what?

An editorial from the Waterloo Region Record Canadians searching for a silver lining in the current economic clouds got it with the news that the federal government had recorded its first budget surplus since the recession. Hooray! That achievement was understandably trumpeted by Stephen Harper, whose Conservatives ran up six straight years of deficits before this single surplus, had promised a return to balanced books and have pinned their hopes of winning next month’s election on what the prime minister calls their “careful economic stewardship.” What’s less obvious is that the $1.9 billion budget surplus for 2014-15 also gives a boost to the Conservatives’ main rivals in this election race. New Democratic Party leader Thomas Mulcair didn’t bat an eye before proclaiming the end of deficits “welcome news.” No wonder. The NDP have ambitious spending plans of their own but hope to allay voter concerns with a solemn pledge to balanced budgets if they form the next government. Should they win, Harper’s parting gift to them could be a budget surplus that would free them to loosen the federal purse strings. Even Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, who rather incoherently lashes out at both the Conservatives’ past deficits

and their latest surplus as evidence of the government’s fecklessness, should privately give thanks for those balanced books. He has a high-priced wish-list of goodies of his own to bestow on the nation, if elected. Like Mulcair, his job would be easier if Day 1 in office begins with balanced books, rather than a $10- or $15-billion deficit that would be piled on any deficit he chose to run and severely limit his options. But whatever points these leaders hope to score over rehashing the 2014-15 federal budget, whatever their views of deficits and surpluses of years gone by, the fact is, Canadian voters should think more about future budgets, not past ones, and whether those budgets should be written in black or red ink. Considering that the federal government’s budget is about $280 billion, whether it ran a $2-billion deficit in 2014-15, as it originally predicted, or came through with the $1.9-billion surplus that was revealed this week makes little difference from a strictly economic perspective. From a political perspective, however, it let Harper say he had kept an important promise. The six years of deficits he deliberately incurred in response to a severe global economic crisis were supposed to end after the crisis had passed and Canada’s economy was healthier. This was a care-

ful, conventional approach that aimed to keep a lid on the government’s debt which, if left to grow unattended, would eventually create a crisis of its own. But what now? The Canadian economy shrank in the first half of this year. Even though many economists say this doesn’t necessarily mean the country, which has not experienced surging unemployment, is in recession, Canada is mired in troubling economic times. We may not see the return of the vibrant, economic growth that followed every other recession we endured since the Second World War, at least not for a long time. All this makes October’s vote a crucial one for Canada’s future. How do we grow the economy? Should voters rely on the Conservative prescription for economic health that includes smaller government, lower taxes and balanced budgets? Should they opt for the NDP’s plan to hike corporate taxes, create a national daycare system — and balance the books? Or should they take a risk on the outlier in this election, the Liberals, who would raise taxes on wealthier Canadians, hike infrastructure spending and run annual deficits of up to $10 billion for three years in the hope of positioning the country for economic growth? The answer to these questions should determine the election’s outcome.

Voting is every Canadian’s duty An editorial from the Hamilton Spectator Chances are, if you are reading this, you are likely to vote in the upcoming federal election. Congratulations, you are in a noble minority of Canadians. The question is why aren’t more Canadians voting and engaged in the campaign? You may cast a ballot, but what about your children, your siblings, your coworkers and colleagues, clients and customers? Why aren’t they voting? Why are they not engaged? We all owe it to ourselves as citizens to understand the issues and the challenges facing our country, and the responsibilities — to us and to the

world — facing our government. This federal election is unique, and it kicked into high gear this week. The outcome is up to us. Any of the three major parties could form the next government after October 19, perhaps a first in Canadian history. The stakes are high. These parties, their leaders and organizers, and your local candidates, plus those with such parties as the Green party, the Communist party, the Christian Heritage party, or those running as independents, have never been more available to voters. This is the time to ask them

questions, to make sure you — and they — understand the issues and the priorities, to press for change, and hold them to account. Do your neighbours know which riding they are in? Does your co-worker know who is running locally, what they stand for, and how they might help your community? This is the time to engage non-voters in the election process. Take them to an all-candidates meeting. Involve them in debates. Ask them questions. Show them statistics. Help them understand how important this is. Yes, it is easy to become cynical, politics being what it is. But it is just as easy to become optimistic.

Terry Fox Run in the starting blocks Smoke Eaters

BY TIMES STAFF Terry Fox began the Marathon of Hope 35 years ago, and the City of Trail is one of 112 communities across B.C. and Yukon that will participate in the Terry Fox Run this Sunday, and keep alive his quest to find a cure for cancer. Fox was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma in his right leg in 1977, and had it amputated 15 centimetres above the knee. While undergoing treatment, he was so affected by the suffering of other cancer patients that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research. At the age of 22, Fox ran the equivalent of a marathon a day for 143 straight days before the spread of his own cancer stopped his journey. “I’m not a dreamer, and I’m not saying this will initiate any kind of definitive answer or cure to cancer, but I believe in miracles. I have to,” said Fox. Since the New Westminster native embarked on his Marathon of Hope in 1980, more than $700 million has been raised worldwide to fund cancer research. “The Terry Fox

The 35th annual Terry Fox Run will take off on Sunday at Gyro Park with the Teck and Kootenay Boundary Fire Fighters kicking it off with a tug-o-war. Registration for the five-kilometre run, walk, or cycle goes at 9 a.m. with the mass start at 10 a.m. Foundation funds research in all kinds of cancer, believing as Terry did that we need to conquer this disease once and for all,” said Donna White, B.C. director for the Terry Fox Foundation. This year’s Terry Fox run will again start at Gyro Park with registration at 9 a.m. and group start at 10 a.m. Participants are encouraged to show up early for the Trail Kiwanis Club’s pancake

breakfast, and get in a warm up with Luana Martin and Trail Steps Company Dancers. The Trail Smoke Eaters and Beaver Valley Nitehawks will also help out the cause with a tug-of-war against the kids, and the Teck Fire Fighters will look to get back in the win column against the KootenayBoundary Regional Fire Rescue who outpulled them in the tug-of-war last year. The five-kilometre

loop starts at Gyro Park and travels through Sunningdale, and participants can run, walk, rollerskate, or ride. The event is a non-competitive, all-inclusive, family oriented activity, as every participant is a special part of the cause and living proof that cancer research saves lives. “Last year we had over 300 participants, so we’re hoping for better, because last year the teachers were still

on strike, and a lot of people were still taking vacations,” said organizer Diane Langman. “So we’re hoping for more participants this year.” Registration is by donation and there is no minimum pledge amount. Trail’s 2014 Terry Fox Run raised over $12,000. If residents can’t make the event they can still support it by donating at terryfox.org or call 1-888-836-9786.

Hawks host KIJHL regular season champs BY JIM BAILEY

Times Sports Editor

The Beaver Valley Nitehawks will look to keep their record perfect when they face the Grand Forks Border Bruins and Osoyoos Coyotes this weekend. The Nitehawks won both their opening games against Spokane, 5-3, and Kelowna, 3-2, to start the 2015 KIJHL season. “I think it’s a great start, it’s nice to get the two wins, even though I think we still have lots to learn, and lots

of spots to improve that’s for sure,” said B.V. coach and G.M. Terry Jones. The Hawks travel to Grand Forks tonight for their first meeting of the season. The Bruins nabbed three points in three games to start the season, opening with a 5-2 victory over the North Okanagan Knights before dropping a 7-2 decision to the Summerland Steam, and a 3-2 loss in overtime to Spokane. “Grand Forks has had a good start, and it’s good to see, it’s always good for the

league,” said Jones. The Coyotes, despite a 47-19 shot advantage, lost its first and only game 3-2 to Princeton on Saturday. However, Osoyoos was the top team in the KIJHL last season with 42 wins and 87 points, and are led by their top scorer, Rainer Glimpel. “I’ll expect they’ll have a good club, they always do,” said Jones. “I think Ken Law is one of the best coaches in the league so we’ll look forward to playing them.” The Nitehawks meanwhile

received an unexpected scoring touch from defenceman Jake Yuris, who scored twice, including the game winner against Spokane, and added two assists in the opening matches. Veteran forwards Devin Nemes and Jace Weegar were the top scoring forwards with two goals and an assist and along with Braden Fuller will be relied upon to carry much of the offensive load this season. Saturday’s game against the Coyotes goes at 7:30 p.m. at the Hawks’ Nest.

The Trail Smoke Eaters look to get back on track when they face off against another Interior division rival, the Merritt Centennials, on Saturday night at the Cominco Arena. The Smokies will also host their annual Golf Tournament and fundraiser Saturday. They won’t be teeing off, but will be on hand when it starts at Birchbank Golf Course Saturday morning. The fundraiser will see over 100 golfers hit the fairways in the best-ball tournament. “They won’t be participating but they (the players) will be there,” said Trail coach and GM Nick Deschenes. “I think we have about 40 teams signed up, it’s going to be a great event, a great fundraiser. Hopefully all the golfers will have a good outing and then get to witness a good showing by our group.” The Smoke Eaters were lacklustre in an 8-3 loss to West Kelowna Tuesday after which Deschense lambasted the team for a lack of effort. The Centennials are coming off a 7-5 loss to the undefeated Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Tuesday, and are 1-2 after splitting its opening home-andhome with the West Kelowna Warriors. However, Centennials coach Joe Martin wasn’t thrilled with his troops either, after taking a 5-5 tie into the third, the Cents allowed the Silverbacks two goals in the final frame. “In all honesty, we’re getting outworked,” Martin told the Merritt Herald. “We’re getting a little bit more down to basics over the next couple of days, and putting our guys through the paces of what real work is like, and how hard it is to win in this hockey league, and how hard you have to compete.” Cents veteran Gavin Gould, a Michigan Tech commit, leads the team in scoring with four goals and seven points in three games. The 19-year-old forward netted 59 points last year, while 20-yearold forward Ryan Forbes has been a great addition to the team since coming over from the Nanaimo Clippers, and Tyler Ward, a 16-year-old rookie, has been impressive scoring two goals in two games. While Deschenes is unlikely to shower praise on any of his players, the Smokies have been getting strong performances from veterans Jake Kaupilla, Kurt Black, and Harlan Orr, although even more may be expected of them. Defensively, the team has struggled allowing 16 goals in three games, and Deschenes says the players need to dramatically ramp up the compete level if they expect better results. “Everyone is looking beside them instead of in the mirror and deciding they need to take this opportunity by the horns and take advantage of it. There’s not many better things than being a hockey player.” The Smokies host the Centennials at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Cominco Arena.

THE CANADIAN PRESS BROSSARD, Que. P.K. Subban received praise from several corners Thursday for his huge donation to a local children’s hospital, with everyone from his Montreal Canadiens teammates to the Quebec premier applauding the star defenceman. “It’s amazing for a guy like that to do something like that,” defenceman Nathan Beaulieu said at the opening of training camp. “What he did was a big statement. “He set the bar high for all athletes, not just hockey players. For him to step up and donate, not just money, but his time and putting his name, his label to the hospital as well, is something special. We have big shoes to fill but he’s a good guy to follow.” Subban pledged at least $10 million over the next seven years to the Montreal Children’s Hospital. The partnership with the hospital foundation will include the creation of P.K.’s Helping Hand, a fund dedicated to assisting families financially hurt by a child’s illness. Geoff Molson, the Canadiens owner, hailed the donation as another example of

Trail & District Churches Shock your mother - go to church this Sunday Going to Church on Sunday may shock your mother but God will celebrate big time!!! I am saddened by the number of people in our area who once were very active in local churches, as adherents, members, elders, board members, youth leaders etc. but stopped attending for one reason or another. I want to see those people back in church whether it is First Presbyterian or the church they once attended. Getting people to come back to church is what is important rather than the church they attend. Back to Church Sunday is like having a reunion on Sunday morning with old friends and the making of new friendships as well. It is God‘s desire to have all of his children back in church

THE UNITED CHURCH OF CANADA

where they can renew their relationship with Jesus Christ. Research has shown that the number one reason for people going back to church is because they have been invited by a friend or relative. So, think of who you can invite to attend church with you this Sunday. Even if you are not currently going to church, ask a friend to go with you this week. If you are the one needing to be invited to church, consider this your invitation. Find a church where the Gospel is preached and the love of Christ is shared, and come back to God’s family where you will experience God’s amazing grace and His remarkable love for you. Rev.

Those we love don’t go away,

September 20, 2015

They walk beside us every day.

Pat,Rick, Lorne, Sally and families would like to say thank you to all whom expressed sympathy in our loss of Dad, “Big George”. We are grateful to everyone who attended the memorial service, baked, sent food, flowers, baskets and donated to the SPCA. Special thanks to the Emergency Responders and ER staff for your expertise and compassion. Also to Gordon Titsworth for the wonderful bagpipe music, Reverends Elizabeth and Douglas Lewis for the meaningful gravesite service and for Last Post played by Doug. Dad would have approved! We appreciate the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #11 Ladies Auxiliary for the great luncheon, and Al Grywacheski from Alternatives Funeral Services for all the arrangements. Thank you to all whom cared for Dad along the way - Drs Smith, Toews, KBRH staff, Home Support, Mountainside Village and finally to the great staff at Rosewood!
