Latest census says marriage on the decline CAROLYN GRANT Daily Bulletin

The latest census figures from Stats Canada show that what we know as traditional marriage is on the decline both nationally and in Kimberley and Cranbrook. Statistics Canada released the latest data from the May 2011 census on Thursday. Across Canada, the

percentage of married couples has dropped over the last five years from 68.6 per cent to 67 per cent of all families. Couples living together without being legally married make up 16.7 per cent of all families across the country, an increase from the 2006 census when it was 15.5 per cent.

Bears are “all over the place;” Sightings pouring in in Kimberley and Cranbrook C A R O LYN G R A N T Daily Bulletin

“Insane” is how Shaunna McInnis of East Kootenay Wildlife Aware describes bear activity in Kimberley and Cranbrook for the first three weeks of September. “Starting September 1, it was amazing. It was like all the bears had Blackberries or something, with an alarm telling them it was September,” McInnis said. “The sightings just started pouring in. I got 28 new sightings yesterday (Tuesday), most of those in Kimberley, though bears are very active in Cranbrook too. They are all over the

place.” McInnis says that she knows a couple of bears have been put down, though she hasn’t been able to catch up with the Conservation Officer to confirm it. Incidents include a bear climbing through a window into a home in Morrison Sub. In that case, a dog chased it out. In Townsite, a bear broke into a garage where garbage was stored, got the garbage and then got into the freezer. A sow and cubs have been looking into windows in Marysville. In Cranbrook, McInnis says bears are actively getting into garbage at Jim Smith Lake. There have also been a lot of sightings

in rural areas like Wycliffe Park Road. “Even out in the country, you need to pick your fruit trees and make sure your livestock feed is put away,” McInnis said. So what’s special about this year? “Is it unusual? I don’t know,” she said. “It’s certainly different from last year when most of the calls were in the spring.” It could be that it’s a bumper fruit year — trees are full of fruit. Which brings around the standard message at this time of year, pick your fruit and secure your garbage. If you have fruit to pick and

can’t manage it yourself, Wildsight can help you by potentially matching you up with someone looking for fruit. You can find all sorts of information on Wildsight’s Apple Capture project at apple. There are two presses in Kimberley and one in Cranbrook. “Wildsight can match you up and they also have an apple press and fruit dehydrator you can borrow,” McInnis said. “The apples press is awesome, it makes the best juice.” The Kimberley Independent School students will also be out picking in the coming days.

New census looks at the Canadian family Continued from page 1

A census family is defined by Stats Canada as being composed of a married or common-law couple, including those with children, or of a lone parent living with at least one child in the same household. Kimberley’s total population in 2011 was 6,652 with a median age of 46.3 84.6 per cent of the population wazs 15 or over, about on par with the rest of the East Kootenay. Cranbrook’s total population was 19,320 with a medial age of 43.1 and 83.2 per cent over 15. That means there are 16,075 people 15 and over in Cranbrook. Of those, 9,625 are married or living common law with a partner; 3,660 never married; 545 separated, 1,160 divorced; and 1,090 widowed. With 5,635 census families in private households in Cranbrook, 3,915 are married, 69.5 per cent of the population. In the last census in 2006, 69.8 per cent of couples were married. In Kimberley, 70.7 per cent of families are married couples (with and without children at home). In 2006, 71.5 per cent of Kimberley families were married couples. Across Canada, the percentage of married couples has dropped over the last five years from 68.6 per cent to 67 per cent of all families. Couples living together without being legally married make up 16.7 per cent of all families across the country, an increase from the 2006 census when it was 15.5 per cent. Common-law families make up 14.2 per cent of Cranbrook families and 17.4 per cent of Kimberley families. Stepfamilies - defined by Statistics Canada as couples living with one or more children where at least one child is the biological or adopted child of only one of the parents - represent 5.6 per cent of all families in Kimberley. In Cranbrook 7.2 per cent of families are stepfamilies. This is the first time Statistics Canada has counted stepfamilies in a census. In Cranbrook, 9.9 per cent of people are divorced, in Kimberley 9.6. In Kimberley 12.2 per cent of families are headed by single parents: 9.4 per cent by single mothers and 3 per cent by fathers. 16.3 per cent of families in Cranbrook are headed by single parents: 12.7 per cent by single mothers and 3.6 per cent by fathers. In Cranbrook, 4.7 per cent of households have adult children 25 and over living at home. In Kimberley, that number is 3.7 per cent.

St. Mary’s Band heading to the polls Three councillor positions open, election set for October 24.

Annalee Grant Townsman Staff

The St. Mary’s Band is heading to the polls this October with three vacant positions available including current Chief Cheryl Casimer’s. The band holds elections every two years with each position lasting for four. Vickie Thomas, chief operating officer for the St. Mary’s Band Administration, said the overlap allows at least two members to remain on the board to welcome in potential new members and provide their expertise. “There’s no complete political turnover,” she said, adding that the staggered elections provides stability. “If we had a complete council turnover we wouldn’t know what we were working on.” The councillors who will be vacating their positions are Marty Williams and Jim Whitehead, while Joe Pierre and Corey Walkley will remain.

The band is always busy, and with overlapping councillors they can continue working on important issues in the community without a significant learning curve. Thomas said this year the election process will take on a slightly new format. Previously, newly-elected councillors would be voted in during October, and would spend November and December shadowing the former councillors in their final months. Now the new councillors will be sworn in November 1 and will have voting power as of that day. “It gave them an opportunity to get familiarized,” Thomas said. Now the new councillors will rely on the experience of Pierre and Walkley a little more as they start fresh on November 1. “I think they would turn to their colleagues and learn from them,” Thomas said. Casimer has announced she

will run again, after completing her first four-year term as chief. Before assuming the position she was a councillor for 12 years. Thomas said Casimer will bring a wealth of experience to the process and there shouldn’t be any issues with the new starting date. “With the experience it’s not going to be too much of a turnover,” she said. The chief is elected in the same way the councillors are. The electorate will vote for the councillors and the person who receives the most votes becomes the chief. “They all have to be prepared to step up to that,” Thomas said. There are several key issues that will be discussed at the October 17 all-candidates forum which will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the St. Mary’s Band Hall. Those include building on the strategic plan that has been developed by the band in con-

sultation with residents and establishing which initiatives should have priority. “I believe all the candidates will have one area of expertise in the strategic plan that they would like to focus on,” Thomas said. “Whoever’s nominated the electors get the opportunity to ask the candidates questions.” Another issue is achieving potable water throughout the band. Currently many residents rely on individual wells. The nomination meeting for candidates will be held on October 10 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the St. Mary’s Band Hall. All members of the St. Mary’s Band are eligible to vote automatically. Voting will take place October 24 at the St. Mary’s Administration boardroom from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Any voters who will not be available on that day can register for a mail-in ballot by emailing chief electoral officer Marion Eunson at

FACTS Open burning ban extended You Need to Know About…

B.C. Coaches Week With


Bill Bennett


As Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, it is my honour to proclaim the week of Sept. 15 – 22 as B.C. Coaches Week. As someone whose character was formed as much by competitive sports as anything else in my life except my parents, I can quite easily think back to hockey, football and basketball coaches who actually changed me, who taught me about important fundamentals like discipline, winning and losing. I am a great admirer of the good coach.


During the last year, B.C. has provided more than $2 million in funding for coach development. This is the sixth year we’ve paid tribute to coaches throughout the province by celebrating B.C. Coaches Week.

The Southeast Fire Centre has extended a ban on open burning until October 15 following a lack of precipitation in the region. Karlie Shaughnessy, fire information officer for the wildfire management branch, said it isn’t unusual for a ban to be extended this far into the fall and it all hinges on the weather at the moment. “We haven’t had a ton of rain,” she said. “We just need to see more rain and cooler temperatures to accompany that.” The extension became effective Wednesday at noon and includes all Category 2 and 3 burning. Category 2 is any backyard burning including grass, and Category 3 is industrial pile burning. Shaughnessy said that although there haven’t been any significant wildfires in the Southeast region, the threat is still there. “There’s still a chance of fire spreading,” she said. The extension does

not ban campfires that are half a metre wide by half a metre tall, however the district is reminding campers to not light any fires in windy conditions and to never leave fires unattended. Right now across B.C., Shaughnessy said there are no fires of note and

none threatening any structures. There have been 193 wildfires in the Southeast District since April 1 burning a total of 1,288 hectares. Shaughnessy said that if the region receives rain moving into fall, the ban on backyard burning could be lifted to allow

homeowners to clean up areas on their property. “There is no backyard burning – yet,’ she said. The ban is extended until October 15, but could be extended further if no rain falls before that time. This prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown

lands and private lands but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Please check with civic authorities for any other restrictions before lighting a fire.

BC Conservative rivals square off Tom Fle tc her Black Press

The BC Conservative Party annual general meeting Saturday is heading toward a showdown over leadership. The party, which laboured in the political wilderness for years, gained traction after former Delta MP John Cummins became leader in May 2011, rising as high as 20 per cent in recent opinion polls. Now some party members want to challenge Cummins’ leadership. They are running as a slate for party executive positions, headed by Ben Besler of Chilliwack, who ran for the party in the 2009 provincial election, when it was led by Wilf Hanni. A pro-Cummins slate headed by director-atlarge Al Siebring, a North Cowichan councillor, was announced in response. Siebring calls his slate the “A Team,” and it includes supporters who billed themselves as “Friends of John Cummins” in a series of news releases responding to calls for a leadership review. Siebring said Wednesday that Cummins’ leadership is being questioned by “a few noisy individuals” who have damaged the party’s credibility at a critical time in preparation for the election next May. Siebring said only four of 26 board members are backing a leadership review, and he expects it to be voted down easily at Saturday’s meeting in Langley. Cummins told Kamloops radio station CKNL he isn’t too concerned about detractors

within the party, calling it “the normal course of events” in any organization. Party members are voting on whether his leadership should be reviewed, with ballots mailed to all BC Conservative members. Party treasurer Lambert Leung of Richmond, who is standing for reelection with the “A Team” slate, said some members mailed in their ballots and others are bringing them to Saturday’s meeting, where the results will be tabulated and announced. Cummins is scheduled to address the membership at 12:30, and results of the vote for executive positions will be announced Saturday afternoon. With Besler running for party president, the dissident slate includes John Crocock, a former regional director for the Burnaby-Coquitlam region, Betty Newton of New Westminster, currently the deputy financial agent, Burnaby North constituency president Ariane Eckardt, Surrey regional director James Ram, Vancouver-Kingsway constituency president Milan Kljajic and Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows constituency president Robbie Armstrong. The pro-Cummins slate is Siebring for president, Jim Sutherland of Kelowna for vice-president, Leung for treasurer, Linda Bellamy of Langley for secretary, and director-at-large candidates Dan Denis of Vancouver, Daniel Brooks of Vanderhoof, Doug Machan of Kelowna and Dennis Belliveau of Parksville-Qualicum.


Familiarization Flying, commonly known as “Famil Flying”, took place for several lucky air cadets from 552 Key City Squadron, on September 8 & 9 at Cranbrook International Airport. Cadets were given lessons on topics related to flying, safety briefing, 30 minute flight and a de-briefing. Several cadets on Sunday were treated to the surprise landing of two vintage air craft, 1941 & 1952 Harvard Trainer. The pilots, from Camrose Alberta, allowed the cadets to have an up close look at their aircraft after they fueled. Weather permitting; we are scheduled to go gliding in early November, along with 279 & 266 Air Cadet Squadrons.

Enormous, mysterious and unusable When Queen Christina of Sweden abdicated to Rome in 1654, she took the Royal Library with her, but left behind a book titled the “Codex Gigas.” It remains unknown as to why she left it behind, but perhaps it was the book’s size. Standing at over three feet and weighing close to 170 pounds, the “Codex Gigas” is the largest medieval manuscript in the world. Bound in wood and leather, the pages are made out of scraped calfskin (it would have taken 160 calves to make this book). As wieldy as a couch (and roughly the same size), she may have decided simply not to bother with it. More than likely though it was the book’s title which caused Christina to leave it behind. The “Codex Gigas” is best known to most by its other name: “The Devil’s Bible.” Which is misleading. The “Codex Gigas” is not a satanic text or magical grimoire, but an actual Bible, made up of the JudaeoChristian Old and New Testament. It also contains a few shorter works, including a medical treatise, a calendar of saints, and rules for penitence. There is also a

section on cleansing evil spirits, which includes a full page illustration of the devil or a demon. It is this illustration which gives the book its more ominous name. Adding to the book’s prominence and mystique is the fact that no one knows who MIKE’S BOOKNOTES made it. The book’s first Mike Selby owners were a sect of Benedictine monks in 13th century Bohemia. Although they owned it, they were far too poor to have made any book, let alone this monstrosity. A legend arose that it was written by a single monk in just one night, after making a pact with the Devil for assistance. Although this is obviously a reworking of the dark ages Theophilus legend, it demonstrates the book was so unique people ascribed supernatural origins to it. The “Codex Gigas/Devil’s Bible” survived numerous wars, including the Hussite invasion of 1420. The monks were well practiced in shipping it from monastery to monastery, all in the hope of protecting it. This worked for a little over a century, until Rudolph II of Prague came to power in 1557. Rudolph II was a major book

The Codex Gigas: A pocket book it ain’t! collector. He was also enthralled with anything to do with the occult, and he may have felt “The Devil’s Bible” was right up his alley. He borrowed the book from the monks to make his own copy, and as one can probably guess, he had no intention of returning it. Another odd feature of the book is the astounding number of signatures left on various pages. Where ever the book was, people used it as a type of guest register. Sweden invaded Prague in

1649, and returned the “Codex Gigas” back to Stockholm. And since Christina didn’t take it with her, it has remained there ever since. It also remains one of the most mysterious and — due to its size — unusable books in the world. (The entire manuscript can be viewed online at www.

Cranbrook’s economy in 2012 What’s Up?

This is an excerpt from a talk given at the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Sept. 19, 2012.


et’s move for a few minutes to an area that I know is of interest to all of you — our economy. When Mayors from other communities ask me how we’re doing my answer is we’re doing okay, our economy is diverse and relatively stable. Let me share with you some statistics to support that: • Business Licences — in 2011 we issued 1,318 Business Licences in Cranbrook. So far in 2012 we have issued 1,432 licences, an increase of 114. • Building Permits — the total value of construction permits up to the end of August was $24,117,039.31 which is a 33 per cent increase over 2011. While some of that was due to damage to residences from the July windstorm new industrial development is at $3,281,699 which is 3.5 times as much as we saw in 2011 ($925,000). • Airport Traffic — Passenger use is up six per cent over last year to date and we are on target to see over 113,360 passengers by year end, a five per cent increase over 2011. While we will miss Integra

Air and look forward to seeing them return in future they only accounted for 1/2 of one per cent of that increase.

• There are three large projects on the horizon, all of which are important to the social fabric and general well-being of our 19,318 citizens, as well as being significant potential boosts to our economy: 1. A new intensive care unit for the hospital — estimated cost of $20 million and requiring Interior Health’s support. 2. A new homeless shelter and short-term transitional housing lead by the Wayne Salvation Army – Stetski estimated cost of $16 million and requiring the support of the BC Housing Commission. 3. Replacement of 60 year old Mt. Baker School with a new high school and neighborhood learning centre, which will also likely require a new Key City Theatre. Cost estimate for the school ranges between $35 and $40 million, including the theatre and for a stand-alone theatre between $6 and $15 million dollars. The Ministry of Education is key for this initiative, and of course the Province of BC is central to all of them, and these are difficult fiscal times. Still, I live in hope, and having our MLA Bill Bennett back in Cabinet

can only help. I also have hope because earlier this year I met with a senior representative from the Bank of Canada who said they are projecting an improvement in the economy for 2013. Other projects we are interested in pursuing include: 1. Further building relationships with Wonju, South Korea following the visit of six of their senior elected officials to Cranbrook in August. 2. Encouraging development in downtown Cranbrook subsequent to Council’s recent approval of the Downtown Revitalization Tax Exemption By-law which provides five years of tax relief for qualified improvements. 3. Establishing a first class tourism industry building on the great work being done by the Chambers Tourism Cranbrook sub-committee. We live in a first class area for tourism rich in scenery, wildlife and recreation – we need to focus on it and make it work for us and grow our visitor economy!

This from a man who has refused to release more than the past two years of his own tax returns. Why endure all the criticism about not releasing the past five years, say, if there was nothing to hide in the returns for the preceding years? Like, maybe, the possibility that Romney paid no tax at all in those previous returns. The people who pay no taxes in the United States are the very poor and the very rich, and Romney certainly falls into the latter category. If he paid no tax at all in 2007, 2008 and 2009, say, he would have fallen into the 47 percent in those years. So should we conclude that he voted for Obama in 2008? Probably not, and we can feel a certain sympathy for a man whose supposedly private remarks have been dragged into the public domain. But he should have known better. Almost invisible to him, there was another group of people in that room who were not rich at all: the people who waited on the tables of the mighty. It was almost certainly one of those helots who took the video of his talk. They are getting in everywhere. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London

Is Romney one of the 47 per cent? It has always been hard for people with strong opinions to tolerate the discipline of electoral politics, which demands that they never speak their minds in public. Say what you really think, and you are bound to alienate some of the votes that you need to win. But it’s getting harder: even at private gatherings, today’s politicians are likely to be secretly video-recorded, so they must NEVER reveal their true opinions. The latest victim of this rule is Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for the US presidency. He needed to feed some red meat to the people who had paid $50,000 a head to attend a fundraiser in May in Florida. Most of them doubtless believed that poor Americans are shiftless, Palestinians are evil, and Iranians are crazed fanatics, and they were not paying to have their views challenged. Still, he should have been more careful. Blaming the failure of 19 years of negotiation to bring a peace settlement in the Arab-Israeli dispute entirely on the Palestinians was not going to get him in trouble at home. “The Palestinians have no interest whatsoever in establishing peace,” he said, which would be seen as a distortion of the truth in most parts of the world, but it does no harm to Romney domestically. Indeed, lots of Obama voters think that too. Same goes for the bizarre sce-

Fans can still get their hockey fix in spite of the lockout There will be no NHL this hockey season. Let the wailing commence. That’s right—as Gary Bettman and Donald Fehr stare each other down across the bargaining table, there is a public relations battle going on, with the league and the players association pointing fingers and laying the blame. This will be the fourth lockout in Bettman’s 20year tenure as commissioner of the NHL, which, to me, is a symptom of the growing problems owners face as overhead costs rise and player salaries skyrocket. However, you can’t blame the players for wanting a fair share of the pie. Yes, owners take all the financial risks, but these players are the best

in the world and they spend their youth chasing a dream of playing professionally that, for many, never materializes. The owners got what they wanted last time—a salary cap—but that didn’t stop general managers from finding loopholes. Add the ridiculous contracts of players like Shea Weber, Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, all of whom signed for $100 million over a dozen years or so and you gotta wonder how financially broke these owners are. The NHL complains about rising salaries, yet owners agree to those kind of contracts. Really? I am a hockey fan. I love the game, and I love watching the game. But I have no interest

in seeing two sides negotiate through the media, telling everyone how much they’d love to be playing when they’re not even talking to each other. I’d rather watch Ryan Nugent-Hopkins streak down the ice and score, or Dustin Brown crush someone in an open-ice hit, or Cory Schneider make a highlight-reel save. But that’s likely not happening this year. However, Kootenay fans, all hope of enjoying hockey is not lost. It may not be professional hockey, but it’s close and it’s live. Cranbrook is one of the smallest markets in the CHL and lucky enough to have a WHL team. The Kootenay Ice have been incredibly

Trevor Crawley successful since relocating from Edmonton in 1998, making it into every single postseason and capturing three league championships and a Memorial Cup. There are teams that are twice as old in the WHL without either accomplishment to their names. The Kimberley Dynamiters of the KIJHL have a rich history in the re-

gion, having existed as an organization for over 80 years. The Nitros, former world champions from many years ago, are currently coached by an exNHL player and feature a few hometown heroes on the roster. I guarantee these young men love nothing more than playing the game they love in front of a raucous crowd chanting their names and exploding as one when the puck crosses the goal line or ricochets off the twine. My brother played four years of junior hockey, mainly with the Fernie Ghostriders, and I got to see a number of guys develop into better players and move up to higher tiers. Drayson Bowman, a left-wing sniper, spent

his rookie year with the Dynamiters in 2004/05, then graduated to the WHL with the Spokane Chiefs. After a four-year career in major-junior hockey, he moved into professional hockey with the AHL and the NHL as inside the Carolina Hurricanes’ system. Jace Coyle, a Cranbrook kid, spent his rookie year with the Ghostriders, then went to the Chiefs and the Medicine Hat Tigers for few years before playing his first pro year in the AHL with the Texas Stars last season. I enjoy WHL and KIJHL hockey because it’s raw. You can really tell the difference between the guys who are driven and committed to reaching higher levels against

the guys who are destined to age out of junior and rejoin the real world. It may not be professional hockey, but players at all levels appreciate fan support, so instead of waiting for a Calgary Flames game that isn’t going to happen this season, head down to Western Financial Place and cheer on the Kootenay Ice, or take a trip down to the Civic Centre in Kimberley and throw your allegiance behind the Nitros. The NHL and the NHLPA have a long way to go before reaching a deal as both sides are far apart from an ideological standpoint. But hockey is still alive and well in the Kootenays and fans just need to get off their duffs and down to the arena to get their fix.

NHL staff told they’ll be reduced to Blue Jays fall 4-2 to Yankees four day work weeks during lockout HOWIE RUMBERG Associated Press


TORONTO - The NHL lockout is only a few days old but its effects are already being felt around the league. With a number of bigname players continuing to head for Europe, NHL employees were informed Wednesday that their salaries are scheduled to be cut 20 per cent across the board. That will come into effect on Oct. 1, when full-time staff are reduced to a four-day work week. The news was delivered by commissioner Gary Bettman during a Wednesday morning staff meeting, according

to league spokesman Gary Meagher. The NHL also announced the cancellation of pre-season games through Sept. 30, as well as the postponement of the Kraft Hockeyville pre-season game scheduled for Oct. 3 in Belleville, Ont., to the 201314 season. Unlike in September 2004, when more than 50 per cent of NHL employees were laid off just days into the lockout, the league is trying to avoid cutting staff. Deputy commissioner Bill Daly told The Canadian Press over the weekend that there were no immediate plans for layoffs, al-

though multiple sources who attended Wednesday’s meeting said employees were warned that further cuts could be coming in the future. A number of teams, including the Ottawa Senators and Florida Panthers, announced layoffs earlier this week. The Senators also placed their remaining staff on a reduced work schedule. “Every full-time, every part-time employee is affected by a work stoppage,” team president Cyril Leeder said Monday. Bettman and Daly both decided to forgo their salary during the lockout, according to sources. Donald Fehr, the executive director of the NHL Players’ Association, hasn’t been paid since the beginning of July. As the lockout moved into its fourth day, there were still no formal bargaining sessions scheduled between the league and NHLPA. The sides last sat down together on Sept. 12. With it becoming clear NHL training camps won’t open as scheduled on Friday, players continued to seek work overseas. On

Wednesday, Jason Spezza signed a deal with Rapperswil-Jona in Switzerland, Anze Kopitar agreed to join brother Gasper with Mora in Sweden and Russian stars Alex Ovechkin (Moscow Dynamo) and Pavel Datsyuk (CSKA Moscow) each returned home to play in the KHL. Rick Nash also arrived in Switzerland, where he’ll again play alongside Joe Thornton with HC Davos, and said that he believes the lockout could last the entire season - just as it did in 2004-05. “It doesn’t look positive,” Nash told newspaper Sudostschweiz. “It could be a season-long break.” Even though that remains a long way off, frustration is clearly mounting. Buffalo Sabres goaltender Jhonas Enroth became the latest player to take to Twitter and blame Bettman for another NHL work stoppage, the fourth in two decades. “So sick of this lockout. Playing in the NHL (has) been a life long dream and now we can’t bc GB (wants) more money from us? #imlosingtime,” Enroth wrote Wednesday.

NEW YORK - Andy Pettitte pitched five sparkling innings in his return from a broken leg and his bullpen barely held on, keeping the New York Yankees atop the AL East with a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in the opener of Wednesday’s day-night doubleheader. Pettitte (4-3) looked his old steely self in giving up four hits in his first September start since 2010. The 40-year-old left-hander, injured on June 27, boosted the Yankees into a half-game division lead over the pesky Baltimore Orioles.

OHL cracks down on repeat fighters with suspensions, team fines C ANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO - Fighting could end up costing players more than five minutes in the penalty box in the Ontario Hockey League this season. The league announced several rule revisions Wednesday, with some noteworthy changes to how the league will handle supplemental discipline. Players who exceed 10

fighting majors will face suspensions from the 11th fight on. They will get twogame bans for every fighting major assessed after the first 10 and four games if they are deemed the instigator. From the 16th fighting major on, the player’s team is fined $1,000. Under the new policy, 25 players would have faced suspensions in the

2011-12 season. The OHL also announced it will be adjusting its playoff format. The higher-ranked team in a playoff series will host the first two games, while the lowerranked team hosts the next two. The final three games would alternate. Currently, all seven games in a playoff series alternate between the two cities.

Sports WHL teams could see box offices increases during NHL lockout Scott Edmonds Canadian Press

With no NHL hockey, at least for now, the Western Hockey League could be heading for a brisk year at the box office. It’s already flexing onice muscle with the major impact its players are having on Canada’s junior teams and in the NHL draft. “Obviously, we all hope the NHL is back playing as quickly as possible, it’s important for the game,” said WHL commissioner Ron Robison. “Right now, we don’t see a real significant impact to start the season but, should this be an extended lockout, then per-

haps as the season progresses we’ll see more coverage and more attendance.” In the last full-season lockout in 2004-05, the Saskatoon Blades say they saw an increase of as much as 30 per cent in attendance. That would be especially welcome for some smaller cashstrapped franchises. Just like the NHL, the WHL has issues with some of its smaller markets, admits Robison, but he believes the model is working for the most part. “We always have the challenge of the smaller markets competing with larger markets in our league and ensuring that

Manning’s confidence ‘not deterred at all’ after tough loss at Atlanta Eddie Pells Associated Press

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - If Peyton Manning is sore, he’s not saying. If his confidence is waning, he’d be the last to let anyone know. Back on the practice field following his first loss as a Denver Bronco, Manning wouldn’t offer much Wednesday when asked if the hits he took against Atlanta had any lasting impact. “I don’t really get into that,” Manning

said. “I’ve never really answered that question before. So, I’m full participation in practice.” As for those three interceptions he threw in the first quarter against the Falcons - well, Manning says, these things happen. But, he insists, they certainly didn’t diminish his confidence heading into Sunday’s game against Houston. “It’s not deterred at all, if you’re insinuating that,” he said.

California hockey team pokes fun at opposing city’s bankruptcy Associated Press

FRESNO, Calif. - A hockey game promotion poking fun at America’s largest bankrupt city has caused a tiff between fans and newspaper columnists in California’s Central Valley. The Condors, a Bakersfield minor league hockey team, advertised its game against Stockton Thunder on Dec. 27 as “Our City Isn’t Bankrupt Night.” The team promised to give away phoney $1 million bills and a few brand new Rolls Royce automobiles. “Bakersfield isn’t bankrupt, but Stockton is. They’re in town and we’re going to show them just

how much we’re rolling in the dough,” the original promo said. “We’re all about lending a helping hand in Condorstown.” Stockton residents were not amused. The river port city filed for bankruptcy protection in June, making it the largest U.S. city ever to go broke. Stockton was pushed to the brink by high foreclosure rates, expensive investments and generous retiree benefits. Thunder officials and Stockton columnists tore at their opponent for making fun of the city’s financial woes. They called the promo classless and tasteless, even urging a boycott of the game.

we have a business model we can live with,” he said. The regular 2012-13 WHL season starts Thursday, with the Kootenay Ice visiting the Edmonton Oil Kings. Still loaded with future NHL talent (eight draft picks), last year’s WHL champion Oil Kings look like the team to beat again this season for the Ed Chynoweth Cup. But coach Derek Laxdal isn’t looking that far ahead. “We’ve got five or six new players on our lineup this year and, like any team, you’re going to pick up injuries and you’ve got to go through the course of the season,

“We always have the challenge of the smaller markets competing with the larger markets in our league and ensuring that we have a business model we can live with.” Ron Robinson so your journey’s going to be a lot different than it was last year,” he said. He’s still pretty happy with what he sees coming out of the pre-season. “We feel that where

we are right now, at this part of the season, we’re stronger than we were last year.” Central Division rival Kootenay that doesn’t appear to have the same depth this season, but Laxdal notes the Ice won the championship just a year ago. “Kootenay seems to restock themselves every year and they’ve got Sam Reinhart, who is one heck of a player,” he said. After finishing on top in 2011, the Ice made the playoffs in 2012 but were swept in the first round by Edmonton. They still have a potent weapon in the person of centre Reinhart,

brother of Oil Kings’ defenceman Griffin Reinhart, fourth pick overall in this year’s NHL draft. Sam is already rated as one of the top picks for the 2014 draft. But big brother Griffin is still in the Oil Kings lineup, as are seven other NHL draft picks, including goaltender Laurent Brossoit. The Ice lost six-footfive goaltender Nathan Lieuwen to the Buffalo Sabres in the off-season and Sam’s talented brother Max Reinhart to the Calgary Flames. Left-wingers Jesse Ismond, 55 points last season, and Joe Antilla, 44 points, both turned 21 and had to leave the

WHL. So Kootenay is looking to do some rebuilding. The Oil Kings have been forced to make a few changes as well. “We lost Tyler Maxwell (21), we lost Kristians Pelss, who was signed by the Oilers, and we lost Rhett Rachinski and Jordan Peddle (both 21),” said Laxdal. There are always trades to be made but right now they’re watching their crop of young players to see how they develop. So far, up-andcoming stars like Curtis Lazar, part of the under18 team that won the Ivan Hlinka tournament again this year, are looking pretty good.

City of Kimberley

Athletes returning from London Games get warm welcome in Parliament

NFL officiating numbers at status quo Barry Wilner Associated Press

NEW YORK - The numbers say there isn’t much difference in the NFL with replacement officials. Comments from players and coaches say otherwise. As fan outrage grows over calls and non-calls, delays in doling out penalties and indecision by the replacements, statistics show strong similarities between the number of flags thrown this year by the temporary crews and last year by the guys who currently are locked out. The NFL knows things are far from perfect something that could have been predicted with officials whose recent experience typically was not even at the highest college levels. But things are never perfect with the regulars, either, and the league shows no sign of being forced back to the negotiating table because of the criticism. “We are going to continue to do everything possible to raise the level of performance of the cur-

rent officials” through training tapes, conference calls and meetings, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Wednesday. The league does that with the regular officials, too. One point of emphasis this week will be game control and making sure players are penalized for unnecessary actions ranging from roughness penalties to unsportsmanlike conduct. Game control and simple professionalism by the officials have become key issues this week after complaints from a number of players. “There’s no doubt the integrity of the game has been compromised not having the regular officials out there,” Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka said. “We’ve got to get that taken care of.” Added Rams coach Jeff Fisher: “We just all hope, and I’m speaking on behalf of all 31 other head coaches, we hope they get something done. We’re trusting that they will.” The Eagles’ LeSean

McCoy was stunned when one of the replacements told the All-Pro running back he was on the official’s fantasy football team. The league prohibits its game officials from playing fantasy football. “I’ll be honest,” McCoy said, “they are like fans.” What the fans seem most annoyed with is the lack of pace to games, most notably Monday night’s win by the Falcons over the Broncos that dragged on past midnight. That’s about the only area where, statistically, the replacements have been far inferior. Average time of game is about six minutes longer in 2012 than in 2011, and with only one overtime game in the opening two weeks - same as last year - extra periods can’t be blamed. More likely, the time it takes to properly administrate penalties throughout the game is the cause. The league has a supervisor in the press box and an alternate official on the sideline to help in that area. But it’s been a

struggle. “It’s a combination of everything,” said Fisher, who has served on the NFL’s competition committee for most of his coaching career. “Most of them are not (from) Division I. They’re all doing the best they can but it’s a combination of everything: it’s the speed, it’s the differences in rules. We just hope they’re able to put things together as soon as they can.” The perception seems to be flags are flying indiscriminately. And yet: - The average number of penalties per game is down from 15.2 to 14.7. - On player safety calls, such as roughing the passer; unnecessary roughness, including hitting defenceless players; and, face-mask or horsecollar violations, the calls are nearly even: 75 this year, 74 last. - Instant replay reviews are way up, an increase of 16. But the percentage of reversals is way down: 23 this year out of 62 as opposed to 21 of 46 in 2011.

OTTAWA - Canada’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes have been given new medals, even the ones who didn’t win at the 2012 Summer Games. Prime Minister Stephen Harper awarded the athletes medals marking Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee at a ceremony Wednesday in the Senate chamber. Harper singled out several athletes, including trampolinist Rosie MacLennan, who won Canada’s only gold medal at the Games, and Benoit Huot, who opened the Paralympic Games with a gold medal for Canada and a world record in the pool. Harper quipped that Canadians know who truly won the women’s soccer match at the London Olympics. The women’s team lost a controversial semifinals match against their U.S. counterparts at the Games but went on to defeat France in the bronze medal event.


Canada’s Rosannagh MacLennan, is presented the Jubilee medal by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The jubilee medals mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne.

YOUR CITY WORKING FOR YOU! CHANGES TO CITY GARBAGE COLLECTION NOW IN EFFECT The City of Cranbrook will now only collect a maximum of three (3) garbage receptacles per week per household. The changes took effect on September 1, 2012 after 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

FREE TRANSIT RIDES TO CRANBROOK FARMER’S MARKET THIS SUMMER Enjoy the Cranbrook Farmers’ Market with free transit rides every Saturday morning from June 23 to October 6, 2012. The free ride comes with a catch: each passenger must be carrying a reusable or recycled bag, be traveling to and from downtown Cranbrook and indicate to their transit driver that they are attending the Cranbrook Farmers’ Market. The City of Cranbrook is funding the free rides for all 16 Saturday markets. The Cranbrook Farmers’ Market runs 9 am to 1 pm, but the free bus rides are from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. That gives early birds and last minute shoppers’ equal access to transit time.

Unprecedented Arctic ice thaw recorded Heather Scoffield Canadian Press

OTTAWA — Arctic ice cover has reached another nadir, melting to its lowest point in recent history. Scientists say the summer thaw climaxed on Wednesday and now will begin to turn with the coming of colder weather. But the speed and extent of the melt this year has prompted them to revisit their projections for ice-free summers and for global warming more generally. ``It didn’t just beat the 2007 minimum, it beat it by a whole lot,’’ said Julienne Stroeve, a scientist from the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Centre. She was aboard a Greenpeace ship in the Arctic Ocean north of Greenland on a trip to observe first-hand the melting of the ice that she has studied mainly through satellite data. She and other scientists say they were taken by surprise by the pace of the melt this year. An area of sea ice bigger than the province of Alberta disappeared over the summer — clobbering previous re-

cords and prompting concerns about the effects on climate change. In mid-September, Arctic ice covered 3.41 million square kilometres, down dramatically from the previous low in 2007, when it measured 4.17 million square kilometres, Stroeve’s agency reported. ``The record is unbelievable,’’ said Andrew Weaver, a climate modeller in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Victoria, in British Columbia. ``This is a stunning loss of ice. To say that it is anything less than stunning would be an underestimate.’’ Environment Minister Peter Kent says he is not exactly shocked, but he is definitely perturbed — mainly about how the ice will reform, throwing off navigation patterns. ``It is a concern and it is not going to be reversed any time soon,’’ he said in an interview with The Canadian Press. ``We realize that climate change is a significant contributing factor and we have to adapt.’’ That’s why Ottawa is bolstering its ice monitor-

ing and Arctic meteorological services, he said. And it’s why Canada is pushing for countries with large emission levels to join a global pact on climate change. ``If we do reduce (emissions), we do believe we can slow (the pace of the melt),’’ Kent said. What alarmed Stroeve is that her on-the-scene observations suggest the satellite images have underestimated the speed of the melt. Clouds and fog frequently obscured the pictures, leading researchers to believe that solid ice was present. But in fact, Stroeve has had a hard time finding large ice floes and is instead seeing many small floes that only look like solid ice from a distance. ``There’s quite a bit of open water between them,’’ Stroeve said in an interview by satellite phone. Stroeve now estimates that the Arctic will be icefree in summer by around 2030, contrary to other formal estimates that have set that date at around 2050.

RCMP seek damaged vehicle after bison deaths


ELK ISLAND NATIONAL PARK — Two adult bison have been struck and killed by a vehicle in Elk Island National Park east of Edmonton. Park officials and police are asking the public to help find the damaged vehicle and the person who was driving it. Elk Island park official Stephen Flemming says a driver would know if he or she hit a bison, since it weighs about 360 kilo-

grams, or 800 pounds. Flemming says park officials wonder why the driver would hit the animals and not stop or notify someone. RCMP are trying to find the driver with parts of the vehicle that were scattered all along the road in the park— the bumper, a Dodge ram hood piece, bits of signal and head lights that were damaged when it hit the bison. Bison freely roam in

the park and across roadways, and the posted speed limit is 60 kilometres per hour to keep both animals and motorists safe. ``Even on a dark night, you have plenty of time to see the bison,’’ Flemming said. ``When you’re talking about a species that has relatively few numbers, it’s important that we look after them and all of us Canadians have a role to play.

NEWS Court agrees girl should be taken off life support Chris Purdy Canadian Press

EDMONTON — Alberta’s top court has upheld a judge’s ruling that a two-year-old child allegedly abused by her parents should be taken off life support. Minutes after the ruling Wednesday, a lawyer representing the child’s mother said she plans to make a lastditch request to the Supreme Court to intervene. But there may not be time. Alberta Court of Appeal Justice Frans Slatter said the parents, who are in custody awaiting trial, were to be escorted within 24 hours to the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton for one last visit with their daughter before she is taken off a ventilator. He ordered the parents, who cannot be named, to have separate visits lasting no more than 20 minutes each. They have been

Taser use drops


OTTAWA — A new report says RCMP use of stun guns continued to drop in 2010. The RCMP watchdog found that threatened or actual use of the Taser by RCMP officers dipped 14 per cent from 2009 — continuing a downward trend. In addition, the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP says actual firing of the Taser declined by more than one-quarter from the previous year. The commission examined 597 reports filed by officers who either used their Taser or pulled it out of a holster. Brewing concerns about Taser use bubbled over in 2007 when Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski died at the Vancouver airport after being hit with an RCMP stun gun. In spring 2010, the Mounties introduced a new Taser policy, saying they would fire them at people only when they’re hurting someone or clearly about to do so.

denied bail and are not allowed to have contact with each other. They are charged with aggravated assault, criminal negligence causing bodily harm and failing to provide the necessities of life — charges that could be upgraded if the girl dies. After the Appeal Court’s ruling, April Kellett and Lydia Bubel, lawyers representing the mother and father, jointly asked for a stay of the decision so they could try to challenge it before the Supreme Court. But after a few minutes of discussion, the panel of three judges dismissed the request. Slatter said there was no legal issue that merited overriding the best interests of the child. ``There is nothing further the legal system can do,’’ he said. Outside court, Kellett said she was going to arrange for another lawyer to appear on her behalf before the high

court Thursday morning in Ottawa. Paramedics found the girl and her twin sister, both malnourished and suffering from injuries, in an Edmonton home May 25. The girl at the centre of the appeal was in cardiac arrest and slipped into a coma. Her sister is recovering. An older brother who was also found in the home but wasn’t injured is now in foster care. Doctors have testified the girl in a coma has an irreversible brain injury and will never regain consciousness. They said she has suffered repeated illness

and needs an operation to allow her to keep using a breathing machine. The operation would be the first in a series of invasive procedures and doctors have agreed there’s no way to know if she can feel pain. Alberta Child and Family Services has custody of the girl but her parents are still guardians. A lawyer representing the child said her best interests should prevail. Lawyers for the parents, who are Muslim, have cited their religious beliefs and argued they should have the final say

Historic Aboriginal markings vandalized C ANADIAN PRESS

GLENWOOD, Alta. — Mounties in southern Alberta are investigating damage to a giant rock covered with historic aboriginal carvings and images. The rock, named the Glenwood Erratic, is located in a field near the village of Glenwood, about 100 kilometres southwest of Lethbridge. Stan Knowlton, a historian with the HeadSmashed-In Buffalo Jump heritage site, wrote in a local online newspaper that he had visited the rock several times to document the pictographs and petroglyphs. On the morning of Sept. 9, he discovered the images had been destroyed. ``This was a deliberate act to erase history and definitely not accidental,’’ Knowlton wrote

in a report published by the Pincher Creek Voice. ``The world has been deprived of the ancient knowledge contained within these artifacts.’’ Knowlton said the apparent vandalism was well planned and resourced. It appears acid or detergent, a pressurewasher and an electric hammer drill were used to remove the markings. He said the culprits would have also needed a large ladder, since the rock is about five metres high. He spotted tire tracks leading to the rock and talked to members of the nearby Hutterite colony that owns the land. They had seen a white pickup truck in the field a few days earlier. RCMP officers from Cardston have visited the site and are looking into what happened.

Most willing to cheat tax man C ANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — A new survey suggests most Canadians are prepared to cheat the tax man by paying contractors cash under the table if they have the chance. The survey for H&R Block Canada found 55 per cent of respondents saying they would opt for the cash option to avoid sales taxes. And they are not overly guilty about it either. Only 30 per cent

said they thought the avoidance wrong. The findings are worrying if understandable, says an H&R Block tax analyst, because there can be serious legal penalties for tax avoidance. A majority of the 1,500 adults polled also said they should not have to report bartered or traded services of goods and services, and that waiters and waitresses need not pay tax on their tips.

Palestinians arrested near Kamloops C ANADIAN PRESS

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — Canada Border Services officials are travelling to Kamloops, B.C., to speak to four people after a possible security breach at the Canada/U.S. border south of Vancouver. Kamloops RCMP say two Palestinian men were arrested early Tuesday evening on the outskirts of the southern Interior city. Mounties say the men were found in a car that was stopped on the Co-

quihalla Highway with its four-way flashers activated, about 350 kilometres northeast of Vancouver. Two Canadians in the car were also taken into custody. According to police, they face charges of aiding and abetting. Investigators say there is no word yet about how or when the Palestinian men crossed the border into Canada or why they were allegedly in the country illegally.

Red Panda takes a name C ANADIAN PRESS

WINNIPEG – It’s taken awhile for the christening, but a red panda cub born at Winnipeg’s Assiniboine Park Zoo in June now has a name. The little one has been dubbed Kiah, an Australian name which means ``from the beautiful place.’’ The zoo had asked the

public to choose from four possible names for the girl panda and Kiah received the highest number of votes. Zoo spokesman Tim Sinclair-Smith says he thinks Kiah will be very happy with her name. Kiah lives with her parents Rufus and Rouge. Red pandas are small mammals native to the

eastern Himalayas and southwestern China. They are classified as vulnerable because their numbers in the wild are declining due to habitat loss, poaching and inbreeding. Red pandas are slightly larger than domestic cats, have reddish-brown fur, a white nose and ears and black eye mask.

Attention First-Time Buyers! Buying a home with zero- down payment is ending soon!! New mortgage rules will soon eliminate “cash-back” mortgages, which provide upfront cash to help cover your down payment. Securing a down payment through a loan or unsecured line of credit is also becoming more difficult to get. Qualified homebuyers who are deciding whether to buy now or keep saving should take a look at these opportunities now while they are still available. Why? Buying today means you can take advantage of today’s historically low

fixed mortgage rates. And zerodown helps you get into your home now so you can save potentially thousands in rent, and get a jump start on building wealth. In a recent survey of first-time buyers commissioned by TD Canada Trust, 55% wished they had bought sooner! A zero-down mortgage is not for everyone but if you have a stable income, good credit and the ability to comfortably handle your monthly mortgage payment


and ongoing housing expenses, you may want to consider this time-limited opportunity. We can review your situation and help you determine if zero down is the right financial decision for you. We’ll make sure you are clear on what’s involved, and that you understand your closing costs and all of your monthly homeownership expenses.

If you want to consider this option, you need to act now, before October 31, 2012!

NEWS Judge strikes down part of omnibus crime bill Allison Jones Canadian Press

TORONTO — An Ontario court has declared another plank of the Conservative government’s tough-on-crime agenda unconstitutional. Ontario Superior Court Judge Alan Bryant struck down a section of the Criminal Code introduced in 2008 dealing with dangerous offenders in a decision published Tuesday. The ruling comes in a year during which judges in Ontario have already struck down two manda-

tory minimum firearm penalties from the same ``Tackling Violent Crime’’ omnibus law. Traditionally the Crown had to prove several requirements before someone is designated a dangerous offender, including a pattern of dangerous behaviour or likelihood of causing pain through a failure to control sexual impulses. Dangerous offenders — sex killer Paul Bernardo is designated as one — can be given indeterminate sentences and be locked

up for life. What changed in 2008 was that the new provision provided a shortcut of sorts for the Crown in a small subset of cases. If an offender was convicted three times of a specified violent or sexual crime with sentences of at least two years the burden of proof shifted from the Crown to them. All the Crown had to prove was that the offender was convicted of those offences and was sentenced to at least two years. The offender then

had to try to prove that they did not have a pattern of dangerous behaviour. That burden is too onerous, lawyer Peter Behr argued — and Bryant agreed. ``(The law) reverses it and puts it on the accused to say, ‘You’re real bad and we’re going to put you away, you’re likely to be put away forever, unless you show otherwise,’’’ Behr said. Behr represents Roland Hill, the man at the centre of this constitutional challenge. He was

convicted in 2000 of a sexual assault and in 2004 of assault causing bodily harm. In the case now before the courts, Hill pleaded guilty to two counts for what Bryant called a ``horrible’’ assault on a ``defenceless young woman.’’ Bryant found that the reverse onus violates the charter, but that the Crown proved Hill was a dangerous offender through the traditional method. The case returns to court Oct. 16 to set a date for sentencing .

Initiate interactions, and demonstrate a deep understanding of the forces at work. Confirm meeting times in order to avoid a misunderstanding. Tonight: Break patterns. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Reach out for a key person in your life. You might not be ready for some changes involving someone at a distance or potential plans for travel and/or education. An unexpected insight requires you to ask for some clarification. Tonight: Someone presents offers. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Know what to do. Make an effort to come to terms with a key person.

Tonight: Sort through invitations.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Pace yourself and listen to what others share. A boss or higher-up could cost you time and energy because of his or her uncanny unpredictability. Your imagination helps you gain a new perspective, and you become less triggered as a result. Tonight: Pace yourself. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Allow more fun to emerge, even if you are in the office.

Get some extra R and R. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Emphasize what is important, especially in a meeting. You will have greater influence in that situation. You might want to give a jolt to someone in order to have his or her defenses drop; however, by doing so, could you be creating stronger defenses? Tonight: Where your friends are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Tension builds. You might see stress build as a result of an unexpected financial glitch. You also might feel pulled between two different interests.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: Our son has been dating “Nicole” for several years. She has two teenage daughters from a previous marriage. Although they live several hours from us, my husband and I have done everything to make “Nicole” feel welcome. Last Christmas, she and her daughters opened their gifts, tossed them aside and went to watch TV. In May, I sent her a Mother’s Day card wishing her a nice day with her kids. She responded with an e-mail saying that since her mother passed away, she no longer celebrates Mother’s Day. A month later, she was in an accident and spent a few days in the hospital. We sent flowers and wishes for a speedy recovery. Our son said the flowers were not her favorite so she threw them out. Two months ago, my son proposed to Nicole. We sent a nice engagement gift with a note saying we would be happy to help with the wedding preparations. After two weeks, I asked my son whether the gift had arrived. He said, “Yes. It’s sitting on the table. She hasn’t got around to opening it.” A day later she sent an e-mail that said, “I will be making my own decisions about the wedding.” No mention of the gift. Last week, the two lovebirds came to a family event at our home. I mentioned to Nicole that I have an antique bridal veil that is a family heirloom, and I would be honored to let her borrow it if she wished. She said it was “too oldfashioned.” Our son shrugs off Nicole’s behavior. I understand that marrying her is his choice and not ours. Are we approaching this wrong? -- Perplexed Parents Dear Perplexed: No, you have been very accommodating. Nicole simply seems rude and unkind, and the relationship will not get better unless your son demands it. Please continue to be welcoming, but back off a bit so she doesn’t feel smothered. Don’t make suggestions or offer opinions about the wedding. She is not receptive or appreciative. Instead, find things to compliment about her plans so she is less insecure about her status and taste. Nicole is likely to be a difficult daughter-in-law. Our sympathies. Dear Annie: I am a 57-year-old male in good health and physical shape. I have been divorced for 26 years. I have not been on a date in three years. This is not because I don’t wish to date, but because I don’t want to just go through the motions. I am close to my children and family members, and I know they care about me and don’t want me to be alone. The problem is, they constantly say, “You must lower your standards if you want to find someone.” What are my standards? Simply put, I have no desire to be with someone I am not physically attracted to. They don’t think this should matter, and maybe they have a point, but it’s my decision. I have no problem waiting for the right person and realize it may never happen. I love my family and don’t want to hurt their feelings. Other than rudely telling them to “butt out,” how can I get them to stop? -- Enough Dear Enough: As long as you understand that you may be missing out on some terrific partners for superficial reasons, this is entirely your choice. It is not rude to say, “I know you love me and mean well, but I need to make my own decisions, whether you agree or not. Please stop commenting on my social life.” Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Omerta in New York,” who sent a monetary gift to a friend in financial straits, insisting that he use it to buy a “luxury” item. She was offended when he used it to pay an outstanding bill. I wonder whether she ever considered that, to her friend, knowing he would have electricity or telephone use for the next month might be a luxury. Ending their 40-year friendship over this is certainly her loss. -- Cherish Your Friends Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Mel Shogren

Mel Shogren

On September 17th, 2012 a hero, Mel Shogren, died. He was a man that very few in Canada would know. He was a husband and father of two boys. Some would say why this would make him a hero; that being a father and husband is something that can be attributed to thousands of men. However, I would beg to differ. Not every man is willing to spend his time ensuring and instilling in his sons the values and principles that have made them who they are today. That showing us that loving one woman can be so profoundly satisfying. That you cannot imagine how his life partner will live on without him. It is today that I celebrate the life of this hero, the only one I have ever known.

1935 - 2012

I will remember my brother Mel, not as he was in the past months, but as he was several years ago: as a sharp, witty, well-informed guy; as a brother who enjoyed good food, good drink, good people and good conversation; as a military man, disciplined, direct, and proud to be a Canadian; and as a man also proud of his Swedish heritage - even though I never was able to teach him to speak much Swedish! Mel took great joy in knowing that people were thinking of him, and he would be overjoyed to know that so many of you are remembering him today! Mel was a caring, generous father, grandfather and a loving husband to his wife Judy. On their 50th wedding anniversary, Mel told me he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how lucky he had been to be with Judy for all those years....and lucky he was indeed, for it was Judy who was always there for him, and who brought him so much happiness, comfort and joy until his last days with us.

End of Life? Bereaved? May We Help?




We love you John (Dad) and you will always be in our hearts. Anita and family invite you to join in the Celebration of Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life for an outdoor pizza and wine gathering at 500 Giegerich Road in Kimberley, BC on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 1pm.

6379 HIGHWAY 95A TA TA CREEK, B.C. 1-800-477-9996



John loved sports, especially golf. From his early days in the rafters of the Pacific Coliseum doing stats for the Vancouver Canucks, to his numerous and coveted golf games he enjoyed his entire life. When not on the golf course, he and Anita made several trips exploring the world, from kayaking the Baja to cycling across Cuba. John always returned with stories, photos and greater insights. During retirement in Kimberley, John worked hard within the community to enhance medical services. With his new lifestyle and location, John focused on his passion for creative projects, in particular, the designing and building of his outdoor pizza oven, green house, and wine cellar.




John had a zest for life, charismatic personality, and a laser sharp wit. He successfully used these talents in his over 30-year career in Broadcast Sales that began and ended at CKNW. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s determination earned him a lifestyle that he was extremely proud of and one that he introduced and shared with his entire family; from the cabin at Whistler Mountain to whitewater rafting trips, dude ranches, and tropical vacations. Nothing was more important for John than fun times with his family, and later in life his grandchildren. Throughout these times, John always used stories to entertain and have others laugh with him at life and themselves.

Obituaries Margaret Elizabeth Baker June 12, 1914 - September 17, 2012

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of a living angel, Margaret. Born and raised in Cranbrook, British Columbia, she always had a lot of stories to tell from the past as Cranbrook expanded. One of her favourite stories was the elephant â&#x20AC;&#x153;Baby Edâ&#x20AC;? whom she saw running down the road from her window. She spent most of her younger years raising children, which was one of her greatest memories. She loved to bake many things, and one of her best creations was her â&#x20AC;&#x153;lemon loafâ&#x20AC;?. She also enjoyed ironing and washing clothes as one of her many hobbies. One of her favourite shadows was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brodie Harrisâ&#x20AC;? whom she always called her dollie. The two of them shared a special bond together. Her other favourite shadow was her daughter Gloria Harris whom she spent the past 10 years with and was in her home at the time of her passing. Margaret is survived by her daughters Marlene (Brue Sauder), Gloria Harris, son Lionel (Monica) Baker, Terry (Judy) Baker and she will be sadly missed by many grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was predeceased by her husband Ronald Baker, son Baby Ronnie, Abby, Wayne, daughter Liz Chiz and son-in-law Mervin Harris. A Celebration Of Margaretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at 512 - 30th Avenue South at 1:00 pm. A private family Interment will take place in Westlawn Cemetery. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in honour of Margaret may do so to the: Canadian Cancer Society, 19 - 9th Avenue South, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 2L9. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at:

Melvin Arthur Shogren 1935 - 2012 Melvin Arthur Shogren passed away peacefully at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital In Cranbrook, British Columbia on Monday, September 17, 2012 at 77 years of age. Mel was born in Cranbrook on August 10, 1935. He went to school in Waldo and Jaffray until he joined the RCAF in 1954 as a young man 18 years old. He served on many different bases in Canada and Europe. In 1960, Mel married Judy Foster of North Bay, Ontario. In 1990 Mel retired from the Air Force after almost 37 years of service and returned home to the East Kootenayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Mel and Judy settled into retirement and enjoyed many happy times with family and friends. Mel fought a long and difficult battle with Cancer and Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but through it all enjoyed the wonderful companionship of family and friends. Mel is survived by his loving wife Judy, his two sons Kevin (Tina) and Derek (Lynn) and his sister-in-law, Patricia Anderson. He leaves behind three granddaughters: Courtenay, Chelsea and Brooke. He leaves many wonderful memories with his sister Carol Ann (Bill) and his brother Harvey (Shirley) as well as his many relatives in the Jaffray area. Mel was predeceased by his father Adolph, his mother Mary, and his sister Arlene. Our family gratefully thanks the doctors and nurses and caregivers who gave Mel comfort and respect for many years. At Melâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request, a memorial service will not be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in his honour can be made to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #24, 803 - Cranbrook Street North, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 3S2. Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service. Condolences for the family can be offered at:

Ten Reasons to Advertise on a Newspaper Website 1. Frequency: The online newspaper Web site user accesses the Internet almost twice as much as the general user. 2. Credibility: The credibility of the newspaper brand

extends to the advertiser. Fifty-nine percent of Web users agree that online advertising is more believable from a trusted Web site. Online, newspaper Web sites are the dominant local media site in most markets.

3. Targeted: If you want to focus on a particular backyard, advertising in an online newspaper is more personal, and more relevant because it is local. Newspapers also publish a plethora of niche sites (youth, women, movie fans, seniors, are illustrative) for virtually any demographic advertisers could possibly hope to reach. 4. Purchasing power: Sixty-two percent of newspaper

Web site users purchase online compared with 49 percent of general users. Thirty-nine percent of online newspaper users have incomes higher than $75,000; 65 percent own their homes. Fifty percent of online newspaper users have spent more than $500 online in the last six months, and 63 percent of online newspaper users prefer to find out about new products through the Internet.

5. Content: After e-mail, the most preferred Web

content is news, sports, financial information, entertainment news, and shopping – in that order. Sixtytwo percent of Internet users visit online newspapers for local news, compared with 39 percent for the local TV station Web site and 23 percent for the local radio station site. Not even Yahoo! or AOL’s Digital City can top this.

6. Retailers prefer newspaper sites: Sixty-five percent of retailers report that newspaper sites are efficient in assisting them in meeting marketing needs compared with other sites.

7. High profile: reports that, among top executives (CEO, CIO, CFO or owner/partner), Internet advertising ranked above over all other media measured for: “Where I prefer to find our about new products,” “Where I prefer to receive information about companies,” and “Where modern, up-to-date brands advertise.” At the same time, these early adopters of technology also skew younger than the traditional newspaper audience. Forty percent of online newspaper users are aged 18-35. 8. Reinforcement: Seventy-six percent of online newspaper users also read the newspaper in the past seven days, and repetition increases awareness. The Internet Advertising Bureau found that, by increasing the number of online banners from one to two per week, branding results on three key metrics increased 42 percent making online a great, inexpensive way to increase the branding lift of traditional campaigns. 9. Quality: Seventy-five percent of advertisers generally said newspaper Web sites’ advertising was as good or better than other Internet sites.

10. Mix: A variety of recent studies have demonstrated the power of online, when included in a mix with traditional media, to elaborate the brand message. Newspaper print and online products combined have the highest penetration and most desirable audience of any other local medium. SOURCE: Newspaper Association of America
