CAO search fails to find new city chief SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

It’s back to the drawing board in Cranbrook’s search for a new city chief. The City of Cranbrook has been looking for a Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) since May, but the first round of applications failed to produce the right candidate. “We conducted phone interviews with seven candidates, and an in-person interview with one candidate. Following these interviews, mayor and council did not find a suitable candidate and has decided not to proceed with any applicants from the initial posting for the CAO position,” said Drew

Miller, the city’s human resources manager. Former CAO Will Pearce vacated the position at the end of May to take a position in Vernon. He had been in the city’s top job for eight years. The city received 33 applications in the first round of the job posting, but ultimately decided not to proceed with any of those candidates. “We will be reposting the position in September, and will continue with the recruitment process through the fall,” said Miller. In the meantime, the city’s Director of Finance Wayne Staudt has been appointed Acting CAO.

THE SIGNS, THEY ARE A-CHANGIN’: It’s the Rec Plex no more. A crew from Selkirk Signs were busy Wednesday removing the old sign and preparing to install a new one at Western Financial Place, Cranbrook’s newly named recreational complex. The Alberta-based sponsor, affiliated with Falkins Insurance, won naming rights for 10 years with a $750,000 bid.

The circumstances – combination of rain soaked soils and extreme wind – under which so many trees were damaged around the City of Cranbrook during the severe windstorm of Friday July 20, 2012 are

considered rare. As a result, the situation regarding trees, both on private and public property and the responsibility for those trees has become a topic of discussion around the community.

Kevin Falcon says he’s stepping down James Keller Canadian Press

VANCOUVER — British Columbia Finance Minister Kevin Falcon is quitting his cabinet post and won’t run in next May’s election, leaving a hole in the faltering Liberal government that some supporters worry will be difficult to fill. Falcon, whose wife is due to have another child in February, told a gathering of reporters Wednesday he didn’t want to be preparing a budget while welcoming a new baby. Falcon said he’ll be pursuing opportunities in the private sector — he insisted he doesn’t have anything lined up yet — because it will allow him more time with his family. “For me, as still a young person with some opportunities that might avail themselves in the private sector, I’d like to

B.C. Finance Minister to quit post and won’t be running again have a little more worklife balance, and I think I can achieve that with a private-sector job more so than continuing in the public sector,’’ Falcon told a news conference. Falcon has been signalling since last spring he was reconsidering his future after getting married and becoming the father of a daughter. He announced Wednesday he and his wife are expecting their second child. The Liberals have been badly slipping in the polls ahead of the May 2013 provincial election, with growing support for the NDP exacerbated by the Liberal party’s right-of-centre supporters fleeing to the fledgling B.C. Conservatives. Falcon bristled at the suggestion he was es-

caping a sinking ship. “When people have been in public life for 10, 12, 15, 16 years, you can’t say that, because they’re leaving, they’re jumping ship,’’ he said, while reaffirming his support for the premier. “I am a strong supporter of the premier and I am a strong supper of government. One of the things I believe is very important in politics is loyalty. I remain very loyal to our former premier and I remain loyal to this premier.’’ Falcon, who was first elected to the legislature in 2001, ran unsuccessfully for the Liberal party leadership. He repeatedly criticized Clark because she wouldn’t commit to running in a provincial election even if she didn’t win the leadership contest. But that was then.

“Circumstances have changed,’’ he said. “I’ve now got an additional baby on the way, a baby that’s being delivered in February, and that means I now have two very young children, and to continue on in the role would mean a lot of time away from the family.’’ Clark quickly issued a statement describing Falcon as “the hardest working finance minister in the country,’’ and she thanked him for helping B.C. retain its triple-A credit rating, “despite the worst global recession in generations.’’ Clark once quit politics herself for family reasons. “I know how hard it can be to balance the needs and aspirations of family life while wanting to serve publicly,’’ she

said in her statement. “I wish Kevin and his growing family continued success and happiness and thank him for his incredible tenure.’’ Shirley Bond, who is already justice minister and attorney general, will take over as acting finance minister. Even before news about a new baby, Falcon had been musing publicly about his future. “I care a lot about the (Liberal) party,’’ he said last March at the legislature. “I’ve invested a lot of time in it. But I also care a lot about my family. I have a young child at home. Before I make a major decision like that, I want to make sure I spend the time thinking about it and talking to my family and thinking about our future.’’

It wasn’t all hard work! As the photo shows, these little Highland dancers are enjoying a well deserved break. Thirty-five dancers from Cranbrook, Kimberley, Creston, Trail and Castelgar are attending the 5th Annual Sizzlin’ Summer Highland Dance Camp being held in Cranbrook this week. Shalni Prowse, from Kamloops is the guest instructor for all the Highland Classes. The dancers are also enjoying Ballet, Zumba, Strength and Conditioning and Highland Choreography. This year, to compliment the instruction, the girls are involved in Sports Psychology. Students of Liela Cooper and Hali Duncan will travel to Calgary and Canmore this weekend to participate in their annual Highland Games.

BCGEU plans strike next week C a na d ian Pres s

VANCOUVER — Government workers in B.C. have staged several small-scale strikes over the summer, but next week they plan to go all out. The union representing the workers says the entirety of its 27,000 members will stage a oneday strike on Sept. 5.

Officials with the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union say they will be joined by select Insurance Corporation of B.C. workers in the walkout. There’s been little progress in ongoing negotiations between the province and union for a new collective agreement. Smaller groups of unionized

workers have already held brief strikes over the summer, including staff at the forests ministry earlier this month and those at several liquor distribution branches in July. The union has rejected a twoyear, 3.5 per cent wage increase proposal made by the government.

Each resident is responsible for trees on their own private property and are encouraged to have a professional arborist assess and/or remove trees if there is concern around safety and potential property damage should a tree come down. It is the responsibility of residents to talk to their neighbours when it comes to concerns around neighbourhood trees. Ownership of the tree is determined at ground level. Private trees are those that have 51 percent or more of their diameter on the private side of the property line and City-owned trees are those that have 51 per cent or more of the trunk diameter on the City side of the property line. If you are unsure as to the ownership of a tree(s), please refer to your property survey, usually found with your home purchase documents. It is also recommended to review your home insurance policy around damage to property or adjacent properties sustained from falling trees or other tree debris like branches, etc. The City of Cranbrook Public Works department has a professional arborist on staff, who assesses trees, conducts trimming

and oversees the removal of diseased, dying, dead or dangerous trees as required exclusively on City owned property. The City is also responsible for the care and maintenance of all public trees that line our streets, trees that are in parks and trees along boulevards. Public Works is not allowed to access any private property and does not have the authority to remove trees from private property. There are three businesses in the city that specialize in the assessment and removal of trees from private property. Those businesses can be found in the yellow pages. Currently the City of Cranbrook does not have a tree bylaw. The goal of such a bylaw, if there is one drafted, would be to ensure the provision of a sustainable, healthy urban tree canopy within the City of Cranbrook and would certainly protect the old healthy trees in this community. The City of Cranbrook values and supports a diverse and healthy urban forest. The City has an Urban Forest Management Plan in place since 2008, which has 821 trees listed (most likely more now) and the value of that public tree inventory is $1,849,910.

Cervantes’ quixotic literary journey

In

the spring of 1605 Spain launched the Tierra Firme Armada — a fleet of 19 ships headed for the Americas. Most of them didn’t make it. A series of freak hurricanes left the majority of the ships, their crew and treasures at the bottom of the ocean. The fleet also carried another treasure no one would have recognized as such at the time. Amongst all the gold, silver, and jewels being brought to the New World, was a number of crates containing the first printing of the first edition of a book titled “Don Quixote” — one of the greatest books in history. “The Life and Deeds of the Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha” was written by Miguel de Cervantes, a Spanish dramatist and poet. Raised in poverty by a deaf surgeon, Cervantes sought a career as a soldier, until he had his left hand maimed during the Ottoman-Venetian Wars. Setting his sights on a literary career, he saw much of his work published, but none of it would have the far-reaching global impact “Don Quixote” had. 400 years after it first appeared, “Don Quixote” would be dubbed the “best book ever” by a panel of prominent writers from 54 different countries. Oddly, it is a book about the dangers of reading. A Spanish nobleman becomes so obsessed with the ‘knight in shining armor on a quest’ type of novels popular at the

time, that he begins to confuse his reading with reality. Setting out on his own knight’s quest leads to a series of bizarre and comic adventures; the most prominent one being when he is thinks he is being attacked by giant ogres; in reality, he is only tilting at windmills. MIKE’S The novel ends with BOOKNOTES Quixote returning to his home. Cervantes states the Mike hero had more adventures, Selby but those have been lost. “The Second Volume of the Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha,” — a direct sequel to the first book, was published in 1614. The only problem was it wasn’t written by Cervantes. This sequel was an illegal edition written by someone named Alonso Fernández de Avellaneda — a mysterious person no historian has been able to identify. Upset by the amateurish quality of this new book, Cervantes wrote his own sequel, which appeared the following year. Simply known as “Don Quixote Part Two,” today the books are typically published together as one volume. An odd thing occurs in Cervantes’ new book, when Quixote stumbles upon a print shop in Barcelona. Here he finds the shop owner hard at work printing the illegal Avellaneda edition. For the first time in Western literature, a character has become aware that he is being written about. This literary device would not gain prominence until the 20th century; the book was centuries ahead of its time.

Miguel de Cervantes Cervantes never made much money from any of his writings, and neither did his publisher. The first book printed in 1605 only had a print run of a few hundred, most of which went down with the Spanish fleet. Thankfully, historians have discovered that 72 of them made it ashore in Peru. But where are they now? What happened to them? Mike Selby is Reference Librarian at the Cranbrook Public Library

The foreigners have lost their war, but the Taleban, still overwhelmingly Pashtun, will not be able to defeat all the other ethnic groups in the civil war that follows NATOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure. In fact, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even do as well as they did in the similar civil war after the Soviet withdrawal in 1989: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Taleban capturing Kabul is a very distant prospect,â&#x20AC;? Mawlvi said. He may be wrong about that. His assumption is that after the foreigners leave the Afghan army, which is overwhelmingly recruited from the non-Pashtun groups, will break apart into the same Tajik, Uzbek and Hazara militias that thwarted the Talebanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drive to control all of Afghanistan after the Soviets left. But those ethnic militias no longer exist, and their former commanders have grown fat and corrupt in the service of the foreigners. It might prove impossible to rebuild them fast enough to thwart a postoccupation drive by the Taleban to seize the whole country â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although they would probably be unable to hold the non-Pashtun areas in the long run. The Taleban have won their war against the foreign occupiers, but they probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win a decisive victory in the civil war that follows. And the only remaining way that the foreigners could still influence the outcome would be to dump their puppet president, Hamid Karzai, and start rebuilding the ethnic militias now. They wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that, so their continued military presence over the next two years is irrelevant to the ultimate outcome. And public opinion in Afghanistan is turning against them so fast that they might still end up leaving without their underpants. Gwynne Dyer is a London-based independent journalist.

Palin conspicuously absent at convention A l l en Ab el Postmedia News

Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s erstwhile would-be national wife, grandmother, big sister, little sister and hockey mom has become Republicana non grata, big time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sarah Palin?â&#x20AC;? I asked the first member of the Alaska delegation I could corral, down on the carpeted floor of the Tampa Bay Lightningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home ice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing a very important role trying to get conservative, pro-life candidates elected to Congress,â&#x20AC;? a woman from Anchorage said. (In fact, while the nervous, likable Ann Romney was preaching to us about how loving and giving and funny and normal is her husband, Mitt, Sarah Palin was in Arizona, her new semihome state, helping Tea Party types campaign for a primary. Sen. John McCain was to briefly address the convention on Wednesday, his 76th birthday.) â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are you running for Congress?â&#x20AC;? I wondered, back in Tampa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No,â&#x20AC;? the woman replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a doctor.â&#x20AC;?

She was Dr. Ilona Farr, a Sourdough for more than 50 of her years, a skier, canoeist, kayaker, self-described â&#x20AC;&#x153;fisherwoman,â&#x20AC;? family practitioner, and single mom of three teenage Alaskans. Muscular and confident, Farr was Palin without the spiked heels and the $150,000 expense account. In fact, she was griping about having to pay $90 to taxi herself to the convention from her delegationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hotel in remote Saint Petersburg Beach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I travel a lot,â&#x20AC;? Farr was saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and everywhere I go, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in this country or New Zealand - everywhere - people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask me about Barack Obama. They ask me about Sarah Palin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask me about her because they want to make fun of her. They want to tell me how much she is respected because of her Christian faith. She is a very positive influence throughout the world.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you think John McCain lost the presidency because of Sarah Palin?â&#x20AC;? I asked the physician from the Last Frontier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he got more votes because of her,â&#x20AC;? Farr replied. Farr was not in the arena in St. Paul, Minn., four summers ago, when Palin butt-ended the Democrats as out-oftouch, handout-happy, defeatist, we-hateAmerica pansies who probably think that Vincent Lecavalier was one of the Three Musketeers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What does he actually seek to accomplish, after heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done turning back the waters and turning the planet,â&#x20AC;? she cracked of Obama then, to thundering

cheers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The answer is to make government bigger, and take more of your money!â&#x20AC;? Four years later, issues, not Favourite Daughter swoons and chants of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drill, baby, drill!â&#x20AC;? energize Team Alaska. Farr said that she became inspired to activism by the passage of the Obamacare legislation, a bill that, she claimed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is basically going to drive all of us who practice medicine out of business.â&#x20AC;? Planted at the far, far rear of the convention floor, behind North Dakota and further from the rostrum than Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Alaskans are considerably less conspicuous here than they were in Sarahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. Palin could have done the legwork to serve as a delegate herself, but, as the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Republican party chairman, Randy Ruedrich, told me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;She didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t participate in any of our process.â&#x20AC;? Ruedrich, an oil-drilling man, allowed that Palinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fame and infamy might have led to a small spike in tourism â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Maybe some folks saw her and decided to take that trip theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d always dreamt ofâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but that blip had been snowed under by the Great Recession anyway. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since she left, her lieutenant-governor has been trying to fix some of the things that she did,â&#x20AC;? Ruedrich noted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you think John McCain lost the Presidency because of Sarah Palin?â&#x20AC;? I asked him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think he had a prayer to begin with,â&#x20AC;? the chairman said.

KOOTENAY ICE

Kootenay Ice training camp underway TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice training camp has officially begun as prospects and veterans begin a fiveday process to convince management that they deserve a spot on the 2012/13 roster. The Ice have 17 returning players at camp but 47 prospects will also be hanging around the arena to showcase their abilities to head coach Ryan McGill and his assistants. The day started with registration in the morning, before veterans and prospects took to the ice in separate sessions. Goaltending coach Justin Cardinal took a look at his six netminders in the afternoon before another prospects scrimmage wrapped things up. McGill led the veteran practice, which included a few alumni pros such as Cody Eakin, Adam Cracknell and Brayden McNabb, who’ve made the trip to Cranbrook to get in some ice time before their AHL pro camps begin. Ice general manager

Jeff Chynoweth joined his head coach and a few scouts during the goaltending session to observe the six stoppers, which included Mackenzie Skapski, the heir apparent to Nathan Lieuwen’s starting job. While camp officially began on Wednesday, many players have been in town for the last week or so getting adjusted to their new surroundings and billet families. One such player is Jordyn Boyd, an 18-year-old left winger who was traded to the Ice for a draft pick at the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft. Boyd is coming off his inaugural season in the WHL with the Everett Silvertips, where he played 53 games and tallied seven goals and four assists for 11 points. Boyd, a Winnipegger, got familiar with the Ice through the help of Jon Martin, as the two grew up in the same part of the city in Manitoba. Boyd’s roommate, Tanner Muth, has also helped him acclimatize to his

new atmosphere. Chynoweth said at the time of the trade that the Ice had their eye on Boyd in the 2009 WHL Bantam Draft, but Everett got to him first before Kootenay could select him. However, the trade, which brought Boyd to the Ice for their fifthround pick gives Boyd a fresh start and bolsters the experience of a young forward core. “I was actually pretty excited,” Boyd said, of the trade. “Last year in Everett, it was a kind of getting my feet wet kind of year and knowing that we weren’t having many forwards leaving, it was good coming in here knowing that I can maybe play a top three line so I was happy with the trade. “It was a learning year for myself and hopefully I can come in here and be an impact player.” While much ado has been made about the 20-year-old situation, with five players competing for three spots, there is also a solid group of 19-year-olds in Erik Benoit, Muth and Jagger Dirk who will look to step into

and to step into that leadership role is key.” Benoit, a left winger, is entering his third year with the Ice, and will push hard for a top-six position after spending last year on the third unit.

“A new coaching staff, you have to make an impression,” said Benoit. “You don’t know what they’re going to be like and you don’t know what they’re going to be like on you so there’s always that

big first impression.” The first intrasquad game of the camp begins on Thursday at 11 a.m. at Western Financial Place. All games and practices over the next few days are open to the public.

NHLPA to make counter-proposal by Friday CHRIS JOHNSTON Canadian Press

NEW YORK - There is no new deal on the horizon in the NHL’s collective bargaining talks. One day after receiving a proposal from the league that commissioner Gary Bettman labelled “meaningful” and “sig-

nificant,” the NHL Players’ Association made it clear Wednesday that it didn’t share that view. Donald Fehr, the NHLPA’s executive director, took issue with the fact the offer included a reduction in the players’ share of revenue to 46 per cent - when factoring in changes to how hockey-related revenue is calculated - and said it would see the amount of money players give up to escrow increase “significantly.” As a result, the union concluded the proposal wouldn’t actually see current contracts paid out in full. “From a players’ standpoint, you should understand, it doesn’t make much of a difference,” said Fehr. “Should the player not get the dollar value that is on his contract because there is a rollback, which is sim-

ply a name for crossing out one number and writing in another, or whether he doesn’t get an amount because there is escrow, he still doesn’t get it. “It amounts to the same thing.” The union plans to deliver a counter-proposal by the end of the week, perhaps as soon as Thursday. With a Sept. 15 deadline for a lockout creeping closer, progress would be made if the two sides could simply start speaking the same language. Case in point: the calculation of hockeyrelated revenue - or HRR - which has emerged as a sticking point in talks. That number is currently used to determine the salary cap, with players receiving 57 per cent, and the NHL has proposed changes that would reduce the total

pot available. According to a source, the league would like minor-league salaries to count as an expense and believes caps should be removed on revenue-generating activities such as concessions, among other things. “What we’re trying to do with the definition of changes is better reflect the reality,” said Bettman. Fehr believes the changes have served to complicate negotiations. The proposal the league tabled Tuesday called for revenues to be split 50-50 for the final three years. However, by the union’s calculations, the actual number players would end up receiving is equivalent to 46 per cent under the current system - a claim Bettman acknowledged to be “in the ballpark.” With the ambiguity

created by the redefinition of HRR, not to mention a smaller pot of money to draw salaries from, the players are calling for the status quo. “From our side, it’s better to leave things the same because everyone understands what they mean and everyone understands what the effect is,” said Fehr. “It makes it much easier that way.” Nothing is coming easy in these negotiations. Bettman and Fehr were surprisingly candid with reporters Wednesday as each discussed specific aspects of the NHL’s latest proposal, some of which had already been leaked out to the media. They both showed a desire to try and shape the larger public discussion around the talks.

Sports Stephen Hawking featured in London Paralympic opening cermonies

Sheil a Norman-Culp Associated Press

LONDON - “Enlightenment” was the theme, physicist Stephen Hawking the guide and Olympic Stadium the venue Wednesday night as London welcomed 4,200 athletes from more than 160 nations to the 2012 Paralympic Games. Who better to greet Paralympians than a scientist who has shown the world that physical

disabilities do not limit human potential? “Even if we do find a complete theory of everything, it is just a set of rules and equations,” said Hawking, who was given two years to live in 1963 after he was diagnosed with motor neurone disease. “What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to describe?” The extravaganza, directed by Bradley

Hemmings and Jenny Sealey, was billed as a voyage across “a sea of ideas” - including Isaac Newton’s discovery of gravity, which all Earthbound athletes strive against. The show included 73 deaf and disabled professional performers and 68 disabled people among its 3,250 volunteers. The gala opened with a look at the Big Bang considered the beginning of the universe - as

a glowing sphere turned the stadium into a giant nebula. In a nod to the famously erratic British weather, umbrellas were a central theme. Seeing performers with no legs beneath the knee doing aerial flips carrying umbrellas could inspire the most ardent couch potato. A huge roar filled the stadium as the South African team entered for flagbearer Oscar Pis-

torius, the sprinter who is making history by running in both the Olympics and the Paralympics this year. Glittery ticker tape and a standing ovation then greeted the host British team as they entered to the David Bowie song “Heroes.” Athletes paraded by in dozens of ways. Some came in motorized carts, others wheeled themselves in, still others were pushed by

coaches or volunteers. They walked in with canes or crutches, eye patches and sunglasses, prosthetic limbs and walking sticks, determined to make it around the imposing stadium, welcomed by a global music mash-up by local DJs. Led by flag bearer Garett Hickling, some 85 Canadian athletes marched in after Cameroon and ahead of Cape Verde. Hicking, a 41-yearold from Kelowna, B.C., will represent Canada in wheelchair rugby at a fifth Paralympic Games. Canada has 145 athletes seeking medals in 15 of the 20 Paralympic sports. The team’s objective is a top-eight finish in gold medals won. Canada was seventh four years ago in Beijing with 19 gold. Blind soprano Denise Leigh then sang the Paralympic tribute song “Spirit in Motion.” And of course, this being Britain, the words of Shakespeare once again were to make an

appearance, with both Miranda of “The Tempest” and British actor Ian McKellen announcing that “the greatest adventure is what lies ahead.” That, over the next 11 days, includes Paralympic athletes competing in 20 sports, including archery, cycling, rowing, equestrian, sailing, sitting volleyball, wheelchair rugby, wheelchair tennis and wheelchair basketball. In the ceremony, Hawking directed the fictional Miranda to “be curious” - and the stadium was transformed into a giant blinking eye. Along her travels, the curious Miranda was to navigate a maze to find an apple - and everyone in the stadium was given the fruit as they entered and encouraged to take a bite out of the fruit when she did. Other performers included soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, Beverley Knight, the British dance group Flawless and six London-based choirs.

Clijsters’ singles career ends after US Open loss Howard Fendrich Associated Press

NEW YORK - Kim Clijsters’ singles career ended where she wanted it to, just not the way she hoped. The four-time Grand Slam champion lost 7-6 (4), 7-6 (5) to 18-year-old Laura Robson of Britain in the second round of the U.S. Open on Wednesday, and will head into retirement after she finishes playing in doubles at Flushing Meadows. Clijsters walked away from the sport once before, in May 2007, then returned after a 2 1/2year hiatus. But now 29 and a mother, the Belgian insisted this season that she means it this time, and decided the U.S. Open - and its hard courts that she conquered on the way to three championships would be her final tournament. “It’s the place that has inspired me so much to do well and to do great things. It’s hard to ex-

plain sometimes why,” Clijsters said in an oncourt interview, her face flushed and her eyes welling with tears. “This completely feels like the perfect place to retire,” Clijsters told the spectators at Arthur Ashe Stadium, many of whom rose to shower her with a standing ovation. “I just wish it wasn’t today.” The loss Wednesday ended Clijsters’ 22match winning streak in New York, encompassing titles in 2005, 2009 and 2010, plus Monday’s first-round victory. She missed the hardcourt major in 2004, 2006-08 and last year, thanks to a combination of injuries and the time she took off while starting a family. Her daughter, Jada, was born in February 2008. By August 2009, Clijsters was back on tour; unseeded and unranked, because she only played in two previous tournaments during her comeback, she won that year’s U.S. Open.

If the swarm of young soccer enthusiasts at Lakeside pitch on Tuesday night is any indication, the new Vancouver Whitecaps FC Academy program is going to be a hit in the West Kootenay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really pleased to see so many players out,â&#x20AC;? said David Broadhurst, the Whitecaps FC Okanagan head coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting to see close to a 100 players, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fantastic.

The academyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aim is to give players that are already with clubs in the East and West Kootenay supplemental training with the best coaching the province has to offer. The academy will include

four age groups for both girls and boys: U11/12, U13/14, U15/16 and U17/18. The Nelson evaluation session earlier this week included players from Nelson, Trail, Castlegar, Grand Forks and everywhere in between. Three years ago the Whitecaps moved their first academy program outside the Lower Mainland to Vernon. Broadhurst runs the program there and has already seen plenty of success. The move into the Kootenay is the first push farther into BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hinterland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think Dave [Spendlove] and [Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] Soccer Quest have done a great job in this community,â&#x20AC;? Broadhurst told the Star when asked about why there was such a positive turnout for the

first sessions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their reputation is good and the small pieces of work we have done with them in previous years, the message is getting out that we are going to be here for the long run.â&#x20AC;? The program runs for seven months starting in September and ending in April (there is a two month winter break in December and January). The training includes eight weekends at Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soccer Quest indoor facility. Four travel events per age group will also be part of the academy. Based on the evaluations on Tuesday and Wednesday night at Lakeside, those players accepted into the program will be notified and begin their training next month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a club we are

Broadhurst said of the motivation for the Whitecaps to extend their reach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a club, the dream is to have homegrown talent, even on our first

teamâ&#x20AC;Ś that is what the fans want and the owners would love to see it. The more work we can do in the smaller districts, working with the coaches and the players, it will benefit our program in the long run.â&#x20AC;?

YOUR CITY WORKING FOR YOU! Thursday, August 30, 2012

CHANGES TO CITY GARBAGE COLLECTION TO BEGIN SEPTEMBER 1 Starting on September 1, 2012, the City will only collect a maximum of three (3) garbage receptacles per week per household. City Council approved the amendment to the Solid Waste Collection bylaw at their regular meeting of August 13. The intent of the amendments to the bylaw is to further encourage recycling and composting thereby reducing the amount of garbage required to be disposed of each week.

The Solid Waste Collection and Disposal bylaw also limits the size of receptacles (either containers or bags) to 100 litres and receptacles cannot weigh more than 20 kilograms each. Garbage containers are to have a water tight cover and smooth rim, must be in good structural

and sanitary condition and have fixed handles. Plastic bags are to be securely tied closed at the top and be strong enough to withstand normal handling and lifting. For more information about solid waste pickup, your scheduled collection dates or to review the Solid Waste Collection and Disposal bylaw, visit the City of Cranbrook website at www. cranbrook.ca, click on the ‘Residents’ tab, and click ‘Solid Waste Pickup’.

RCMP ask for public’s help in missing woman case C ANADIAN PRESS

EDMONTON — An RCMP task force investigating missing women in Alberta hopes a disturbing recording of a man’s voice will help them crack a case. The recording is of a cellphone conversation that Amber Tuccaro received while she was in a vehicle south of Edmonton in August 2010 — the last time she was seen. Mounties have posted the conversation to a website in the hope that someone will recognize the voice of a man in the vehicle, who police say is a person of interest. Police warn the content is disturbing. The man assures Tuccaro that the vehicle is headed to Edmonton, but Tuccaro appears increasingly skeptical as the conversation continues. “You’d better not be taking me anywhere I don’t want to go,’’ Tuccaro can be heard telling

to assure Tuccaro that the roads they are taking are headed to the east side of Edmonton. The recording becomes garbled as the call fades, but the man can be heard saying “gravel’’ right be-

fore the call cuts out. The recording is posted at www.kare.ca and www.albertamissingpersons.ca. Tuccaro, who was 20 at the time and was the mother of a 14-month old, hasn’t been seen or heard from since. “Please listen to the man’s voice. If you do recognize him, call police,’’ Tuccaro’s mother, Vivian Tuccaro, said at the news conference where police released the recording. “There are no words to describe the pain our family feels since Amber’s disappearance. We are not complete without Amber.’’ As the recording was played for reporters, Tuccaro was overcome with emotion at hearing what’s believed to be her daughter’s last known words and had to leave the room. Police paused the recording until she was gone.

Oncologist awarded after investigation launched C anadian Press

PRINCE GEORGE – A Prince George oncologist who left his post due to a provincial investigation has earned an award for his work. Doctor Suresh Katakkar has been named

compassionate doctor by a U.S. patients’ group based on online voting conducted amongst millions of people. Katakkar was to be the chief oncologist at the soon-to-open B-C Cancer Agency Centre

for the North until an investigation was launched into his practices in May. The agency contends some of the doctors’ treatments violated standard protocols for certain types of cancer.

Sex recruiters could prowl B.C. university campuses C ANADIAN PRESS

VICTORIA — B.C.’s advanced education minister has warned post-secondary schools in the province to keep an eye open for the adult entertainment industry. Naomi Yamamoto says she’s concerned recruiters may target students on university and college campuses in their hunt for new em-

ployees. The minister has sent a letter to B.C. institutions outlining her fears that recruiters will attempt to set-up booths at post-secondary job fairs this fall. She says her information comes after a series of news stories out of Windsor, Ont. about the trend. The government

notes that during the spring, the sex industry suggested it would recruit near Vancouver public schools. At the time, school board officials put out the message that public educational facilities are not an appropriate venue to recruit adult entertainment industry workers.

Woman in coma after acid attack C ANADIAN PRESS

MONTREAL — A Quebec woman is in an induced coma and has her face covered in bandages after having corrosive acid thrown in her face. More than 4,000 messages of support on Facebook have rolled in for Tanya St-Arnauld.

The 29-year-old StArnauld remains in hospital with burns to her body. Police in Longueuil, south of Montreal, arrested Nikolas Stefanatos shortly after the Sunday morning attack. Police say Stefanatos is St-Arnauld’s boyfriend.

He appeared in court Monday and was charged with aggravated assault. A police spokesman says investigators have not yet been able to question St-Arnauld because of her condition. Stefanatos is to appear in court for a bail hearing on Friday.

Hurricane Isaac takes on fortified New Orleans Michael Kunzelman, Stacey Pl aisance Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Hurricane Isaac began a slow, drenching slog inland from the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday, pushing water over a rural Louisiana levee and stranding some people in homes and cars as the storm spun into a newly fortified New Orleans exactly seven years after Katrina. Although Isaac was much weaker than the 2005 hurricane that crippled the city, the threat of dangerous storm surges and flooding from heavy rain was expected to last all day and into the night as the immense comma-shaped storm crawled across Louisiana. Army Corps spokeswoman Rachel Rodi said the city’s bigger, stronger levees were withstanding Isaac’s assault. Rescuers in boats and trucks plucked a handful of people who became stranded by floodwaters in thinly populated areas of southeast Louisiana. Authorities feared

many more could need help after a night of slashing rain and fierce winds that knocked out power to more than 500,000 people. The extent of the damage was not entirely clear because officials did not want to send emergency crews into harm’s way. So far, Plaquemines Parish, a fishing community south of New Orleans, seemed to be the hardest hit. About two dozen people who stayed behind despite evacuation orders needed to be rescued from the east bank of Plaquemines Parish. The flooding appeared to be widespread. “We’ve got problems all across the south,’’ said Kevin Davis, director of the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. Two police officers had to be rescued by boat after their car became stuck. Rescuers were waiting for the strong winds to die down before moving out to search for other people.

(Good day)

hank you for celebrating the opening of the new Ɂaamnik Education Centre. Our unique project approach meant that we were able to realize our vision of a new educational facility for the 2013 school year. The new 10,000 sq. ft. facility, built by ATCO Structures and Logistics, will replace the existing Ɂaamnik Elementary which offers fully accredited K-7 instruction. The restricted timeline meant that a non-traditional approach would be required driving the unique project approach taken. The facility was partially constructed in a factory located in Aumsville Oregon and then shipped to site in 13 pieces where it was craned onto the foundation and finished on site.

The modular construction allowed us to take the project from design to opening in a mere 6 ½ months with the ability to plan for future expansion including a gymnasium without having to re-work major components of the project.

Thank you to all our project contractors, suppliers and the ATCO Group for helping to make our project a success. We look forward to showcasing our new facility to the community. Taxa Michelle Shortridge, Capital Projects Manager

New book raises questions in bin Laden death Kimberly Dozier Associated Press

WASHINGTON — A firsthand account of the commando raid by U.S. Navy SEALs that killed Osama bin Laden contradicts previous accounts by administration officials, raising questions as to whether the terror mastermind presented a clear threat when SEALs first fired upon him. Bin Laden apparently was shot in the head when he looked out of his bedroom door into the top-floor hallway of his compound as SEALs rushed up a narrow stairwell in his direction, according to former Navy SEAL Matt Bissonnette, writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen in ``No Easy Day.’’ Bissonnette says he was directly behind a point man going up the stairs in the pitch black

hallway. Near the top, he said, he heard two shots, but the book doesn’t make it clear who fired them. He wrote that the point man had seen a man peeking out of a door on the right side of the hallway. The author writes that the man ducked back into his bedroom and the SEALs followed, only to find the man crumpled on the floor in a pool of blood with a hole visible on the right side of his head and two women wailing over his body. Once they wiped the blood off his face, they were certain it was bin Laden. Bissonnette says the point man pulled the two women out of the way and shoved them into a corner. He and the other SEALs trained their guns’ laser sights on bin Laden’s still-twitching body, shooting him sev-

eral times until he lay motionless. The SEALs later found two weapons stored by the doorway, untouched, the author said. Administration officials briefing reporters in the days after the May 2011 raid in Pakistan said the SEALs shot bin Laden only after he ducked back into the bedroom because they assumed he might be reaching for a weapon. National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor would not comment on the apparent contradiction late Tuesday. But he said in an email Wednesday, ``As President Obama said on the night that justice was brought to Osama bin Laden, ‘We give thanks for the men who carried out this operation, for they exemplify the professionalism, patriotism and un-

paralleled courage of those who serve our country.’’’ The account is sure to renew questions about whether the raid was intended to capture or simply to kill bin Laden. Bissonnette writes that during a pre-raid briefing, an administration lawyer told them that they were not on an assassination mission. According to Bissonnette, the lawyer said that if bin Laden was ``naked with his hands up,’’ they should not engage him. If bin Laden did not pose a threat, they should detain him. A former deputy judge advocate general for the Air Force said the shooting was understandable according to the orders the SEALS had. ``It wasn’t unreasonable for the SEALs to shoot the individual who stuck his head out,’’ said retired Maj. Gen. Charlie Dunlap. ``In a confined space like that where it is clear that there are hostiles, the SEALs need to take reasonable steps to ensure their safety and accomplish the mission,’’ Dunlap said. Dunlap adds that shooting bin Laden’s

In another possibly uncomfortable revelation for U.S. officials who say bin Laden’s body was

treated with dignity before being given a full Muslim burial at sea, the author reveals that in the cramped helicopter flight out of the compound, one of the SEALs was sitting on bin Laden’s chest as the body lay at the author’s feet in the

middle of the cabin, for the short flight to a refuelling stop inside Pakistan where a third helicopter was waiting. This is common practice, as U.S. troops sometimes must sit on their own war dead in packed helicopters.

NEWS Zoo distraught after monkey stolen C anadian Press

MONCTON, N.B. — The general manager of a New Brunswick zoo says staff are distraught after a pint-sized primate was nabbed from his cage in an overnight heist. Bruce Dougan said workers at Moncton’s Magnetic Hill Zoo inspected the squirrel monkey exhibitWednesday morning only to discover that Hercules, the 19-year-old patri-

arch of the group, was missing. Whoever stole the tiny, black-and-olive coloured animal somehow broke into the zoo and cut through two padlocks to gain access to the outdoor cage, which houses five other squirrel monkeys. Dougan said staff are worried about Hercules’s health, noting that his one- to two-pound frame requires a special, vitamin-rich diet that

should not be suddenly changed. “We’re concerned about him getting properly fed, we’re concerned about his physical wellbeing, not knowing who has him or how they caught him, or how they’re keeping him or housing him,’’ he said in an interview. “Certainly the keepers that care for this animal are quite distraught.’’ Dougan said squirrel monkeys are not very common in captivity and only live for about 21 years, which makes the aging monkey’s disappearance particularly distressing. He didn’t speculate why someone would want to take Hercules, but said zoo visitors are often charmed by the mini monkeys. “(He’s) very, very cute,’’ said Dougan. “And that’s the appeal of squirrel monkeys, I guess, is that they appear so baby-like, so cute.’’ But despite his innocent, wide-eyed appearance, Dougan said a squirrel monkey would

He added that owning such an animal isn’t permitted in the province. He also cautioned that a nervous animal that feels threatened “certainly will attack, no question.’’ As a result, Dougan said the zoo was calling

hospitals and medical clinics to see if anyone has sought treatment for an animal bite. He said veterinary clinics would also be contacted in the event whoever took Hercules had called with questions about caring for a squirrel monkey.

Sony pitches quality beyond HD Associated Press

NEW YORK — High-definition TVs roughly quadrupled the resolution of the sets that came before them. Now, the industry is poised to do it again. Sony says that by December, U.S. stores will sell a TV set with four times the resolution of today’s best HDTVs. The set will measure 84 inches on the diagonal, making the screen area four

times as large as the common 42-inch set. Sony executives didn’t reveal the price of the set Wednesday. There is, for now, very little video content available that can take advantage of the higher resolution. With some work and know-how, a computer connected to the set can display video in the ultra-HD “4K’’ resolution.

Labour Day Is a Canadian Tradition, Too

J

ust like their neighbors to the south, Canadians also celebrate Labour Day. Celebrated on the first Monday in September since the 1880s, Labour Day in Canada can be traced to a worker’s strike that took place in April of 1872. The Toronto Typographical Union was at the center of the Toronto Trades Assembly’s

first significant demonstration for worker’s rights. Typographical Union workers, who were breaking the law at the time by simply being members of a trade union, went on strike to campaign for a ninehour work day, only to witness two dozen of their union leaders be imprisoned. A parade was staged to show supcont’d next page

port for the union’s workers as well as its imprisoned leaders. Another parade was scheduled for September, and Canadian Prime Minister Sir John McDonald eventually promised to repeal Canada’s antiunion laws. Originally celebrated in the spring, Canadian Labour Day is now celebrated on the same day as Labor Day in the United States. Also similar to the U.S. Labor Day, post offices and many businesses are closed on Labour Day, as are schools and other educational establishments. The similarities between the two holidays don’t end there, as many Canadians take advantage of the Labour Day weekend to enjoy one last summer getaway, or enjoy a picnic or barbecue with family and friends. Also, fairs, festivals and fireworks displays are common throughout the country onLabour Day weekend.

Another and likely lesser known similarity between American Labor Day and Canadian Labour Day is the role football plays in both countries. Labor Day weekend in the U.S. is typically the opening weekend for many of the nation’s college football teams. In Canada,

the Labour Day Classic is played over the Labour Day weekend and features the Canadian Football League’s rivals squaring off against one another. The competing teams do not change from year to year, making this a Labour Day tradition Canadian foot

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your friendship defines a relationship, especially as the other party initially is not as enthusiastic as you are. A tendency of yours to go overboard comes out. Perhaps you need to relax more. Make plans to start the weekend as early as possible. Tonight: Not to be found. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Understand your role, which could change rapidly during the day. An associate finally opens up because of your efforts, and you’ll take the lead in moving a situation forward. You easily could go to extremes if you are not careful. Accept a call from a friend. Tonight: Start the weekend early. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have an opportunity to break a pattern and head in a different direction once you understand the limitations of the course you are on. You might not want to share all the possibilities that come forward. Tonight: Be a statesman of sorts. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Deal with a key person or friend in your life directly. Your sensitivity comes out in the way you respond to someone’s offer. Take in the possibilities here, as well as what is being proposed in the discussion. You might be taken aback. Tonight: Let your imagination drift with music. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You know when to defer to others. Such an occasion emerges today. A partner or loved one could be demanding. As a result, your perspective will change. You might want to rethink a particular situation. Lots of talking helps iron out a problem. Tonight: With that favorite person. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might be more easygoing than in the past. Still, you need to adapt, not only to a changing financial situation, but also to a transformation involving a friend or loved one. Just relax -- it will be easy. Let someone else take the lead. Tonight: Go with a different choice. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You are as frisky as can be. You might wonder why you are heading in a direction that has a dead

end. Perhaps it is the process you enjoy more than the end results. Be open to a positive change and new opportunities. Tonight: Squeeze in a walk or some other form of exercise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Pressure builds from the morning into the afternoon. You might feel as if you cannot handle what is on your plate until you get a wonderful idea for a solution. Relax, and weigh the pros and cons. Use your imagination. Tonight: Incorporate new information. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might want to continue an irritating conversation to fully understand where someone is coming from. You could be overtired or dragged down by your own thoughts. Express your imagination and sense of determination. Tonight: Happy to go home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Handle financial matters early on in the day. You could be subject to drifting thoughts in the afternoon, though there might be a great idea embedded in those daydreams. Follow your instincts with a muchneeded conversation with a sibling

or neighbor. Tonight: Take a relaxing walk. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Use the morning to the max, when you are at your prime. Communication among friends or associates reveals some nuggets of information you will want to hear. You might decide to check out those facts, or you could invest some time in a project. Tonight: Your treat. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) As the day goes on, you feel better and better. Use the morning for quieter activities, like doing research or reading the paper. Your perspective on a trip or possible heartfelt venture opens up. Tonight: Do absolutely what you want.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My wife and I are in the final stages of a divorce after 25 years of marriage. We have two wonderful teenagers. We both realize that we had a part in the breakdown of the marriage, and we are trying to keep the process as friendly as such things can be. Shortly after my wife moved out, I met a wonderful lady with whom I have much in common. Once the divorce is final, I would like to ask her to marry me. Is that fair? I don’t want my soon-to-be-ex to think that she meant nothing to me and is being traded in. I also don’t want my new ladylove to think I’m simply replacing one wife with another. I don’t mind living alone. It actually has been quite peaceful. The biggest worry is the kids. I think my son would understand, but my 13-year-old daughter will be a different story. She tries to put up a good front, but isn’t succeeding all that well. I guess the real question is: Should I let my concerns for other people get in the way of my own happiness? How can I help my daughter understand that I am not disrespecting the years of my marriage? I am simply taking the next step in my life. -Ready To Move On Dear Ready: Your main focus right now should be your kids’ adjustment, not your personal contentment. You are rushing things. They are teenagers. The parents they love are divorcing, and this is enough trauma in their lives for the moment. Please don’t make things more stressful by remarrying so quickly. Let the dust from the divorce settle, and then slowly introduce the new woman into your children’s lives and let them get to know her. They may still object, but they will have less reason if they don’t feel she is being shoved down their throats. We think all of you could benefit from speaking to a family therapist. Dear Annie: Lately, I have been getting constant putdowns for my “new” appearance. It consists of clothes that I’ve owned for a while, though nobody seemed to notice until I began applying black eyeliner. My sister has been pestering me for months, complaining that I look Goth. I admit that I’ve begun using makeup more often, though it’s usually only eyeliner or silver eye shadow. A few days ago, I was sent to the school office to receive papers for a special event for high-honor students. While I was waiting, a teacher I didn’t know walked in and gave me a nasty look, saying, “Hope that one makes it to the high school.” Annie, I have no piercings other than the standard ones in my ears. I don’t dye my hair. I am an honor student and love to read. Please tell your readers not to judge a book by its cover. It can really hurt. -- Judged Wrong in Jersey Dear Jersey: It is never a good idea to judge based on appearances. But, honey, if simply wearing eyeliner is making people look askance, you might ask whether perhaps you are wearing a bit too much. And if a Goth look is what you are going for, it makes no sense to be surprised by the reaction. Take responsibility for your choices. Dear Annie: Like “Single Too Long,” I am 55, divorced with grown children and can’t find a long-term relationship. The difference is, I’m female. I have tried dating sites and church groups (full of women). I did meet men when I briefly worked at Home Depot, but I had to quit. You told him to go where the women are, but where are the men? -- Looking for a Relationship, Too Dear Looking: In bookstores, grocery stores, hardware stores and laundromats. At sporting events, taking college courses, playing golf, softball and basketball, doing volunteer work and traveling. Readers? Help us out here.

In Appreciation A sincere thank you to family and friends for your support during this very difďŹ cult time. The food, ďŹ&#x201A;owers, cards, calls, hugs and Memorial Scholarship donations were gratefully received. To those from near and far, with special mention of the Paramedics who came to honor one of their own, our heartfelt thanks. Your presence at the Celebration of Life for Jon Howard Sortome was a tribute to a very special man, gone too soon. To Myra, the speakers and helpers, our gratitude for your valuable assistance. From the Sortome, Waites and McMurtrie families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the the moments that take our breath away.â&#x20AC;? Jon had many such moments.

Marian W. A. Whebell September 12, 1920 August 25, 2012 The WWII war bride of Harold Ellis, Marian left her native Holland in 1945 to take up residence in Kimberley, British Columbia. She was soon employed by what was then known as the Mark Creek Store, and then â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Bayâ&#x20AC;? and recently Fields, where she was the assistant manager. After a somewhat stormy marriage to Harold which led to an equable divorce, Marian married Ralph Whebell, also a veteran, and became Ralphâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s widow in 1990. Retired by that time, she lived a quiet life for a long time and passed away on Saturday, August 25, 2012 at 91 years of age. Marian was more or less a â&#x20AC;&#x153;homebody,â&#x20AC;? preferring to do some gardening and practising considerable culinary skills in the kitchen. She also managed to get through an awesome number of novels over the years, being a stalwart Danielle Steel fan. As anyone coming to her house will also know, she did quite a bit of craft work, particularly portraying Amerind themes in her wall hangings. Marian was not blessed with children, which, at times, was somewhat of a disappointment to her. At Marianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request she will be cremated and there will be neither a funeral nor a celebration of life.

In times of grief, these caring professionals are here to serve and comfort your family.

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at: www.mcphersonfh.com
