Bev Campbell, chair of the board for the United Way of Cranbrook and Kimberley, welcomed the arrival of the Kimberley contingent who had relayed the United Way flag down the North Star Rails to Trails to Cranbrook to kick off the United Way’s first annual Friendship Festival, a celebration of the relationship between the two communities on Saturday, Sept. 22. From the Clock Tower Square, the group carried the flag to Rotary Park, where they were met by Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski, and where a ceremony was held to start the festival. Next year is Kimberley’s turn to host the festival, and Cranbrook’s turn to relay the flag to Kimberley (uphill this time!). Pictured above: Members of the roller derby squad the Kimberley Bavarian Barbarians — Ruby Kaboom, Raven Rage, Stroker and Adoll Hitter; members of the Freewheelers Cycle Club — Colin Squirrell, Gregg Campbell, Nigel Kitto and Christopher Kitto; Kimberley Acting Mayor Bev Middlebrook, Kimberley Councillor Darryl Oakley and Kris Bellanger, City of Kimberley Planner.

Four bears put down in last month C AROLYN G RA N T Daily Bulletin

Conservation Officers are asking East Kootenay residents to step up and take extra care with attractants as an unusual amount of bear activity continues.

“We have been very busy,” said Conservation Officer Joe Carravetta. “Hunting season has started but it’s mostly bears consuming a large portion of our time. They are an issue in Kimberley, Fer-



nie and Elkford especially.” Carravetta says the issue is a very poor supply of the natural food source ­— berries — in the high alpine and bears are coming down into towns to feed be-

fore hibernating. “We have put down four bears in Kimberley since August,” he said. “These were bears that were breaking into garages and residences, which is a sign of aggression. We had no


choice but to put them down. “We really need the public to step up and keep attractants controlled and hopefully the bears will not become habituared and move on.”

The local NDP have chosen their candidate to carry the party flag into the May, 2013, provincial election. The Kootenay East Constituency Association held its nomination convention on Saturday, Sept. 22, at the Manual Training School hall in Cranbrook. Norma Blissett of Cranbrook and Randall Macnair of Fernie were the two candidates seeking the nomination. And after the votes were tallied, Blissett came out on top — 94 votes to 13 (one spoiled ballot). Blissett will now contest the British Columbia general election — the province’s 40th — on May 14th, 2013, with Bill Bennett. Bennett is the threeterm MLA representing the B.C. Liberals. Blissett said the focus of the upcoming NDP campaign is the NDP message to voters. “What we’re going to be doing is reaching out to the constituents who live here — we’re going to be spreading our message of positive change on the doorsteps, at public events and in the media,” she said.

Norma Blissett

Blissett is a forester and a teacher and has lived in Cranbrook for the past 17 years. She is currently teaching science and math at Mt. Baker Secondary School. She faced off for the nomination against Randal Macnair, a former mayor of Fernie and current Fernie City Councillor. “We’d done a lot of work as far as reaching out to members,” Blissett said of the nomination campaign. “I phoned everyone, sent out brochures, I met with a number of people I didn’t know before, so I was fairly confident coming in. But you never known, right?”

Cranbrook’s Laurie Dickson selected as guest poser Athlete achieves her ultimate bodybuilding goal Annalee Grant Townsman Staff

Cranbrook’s Laurie Dickson has officially achieved her ultimate bodybuilding goal, and she couldn’t be any happier. Dickson has been invited to be the guest poser at the upcoming National Physique and Athletics Association (NPAA) Federation Championships in Calgary on September 30. As guest poser, Dickson will perform a two to three minute routine in front of 500 or more gathered athletes, judges and more. “It’s a dream of mine come true,” Dickson told the Townsman. “People look to that as a focal point.” Dickson said her physique and competition accreditations earned her the prestigious positions at the national competition, but she still can’t believe that as a mother of two she has been chos e n . “I never thought ever when I started this as a single mom that I’d be on stage as a guest at a federation,” she said. “This is what you aspire to. This is my ultimate goal.” Most bodybuilding competitions have a guest poser that performs after all the athletes have completed the competition rounds. “There’s not a lot of female figure guest posers,” Dickson said.

Joining Dickson on her trip to Calgary will be three of her clients from Aspire2bFit, the business she runs coaching fellow athletes and prepping them for competition. She also has a nutrition consultation business. Dickson is a threecarded athlete with the NPAA, World Natural Sports Organization and the International Drug Free Athletes organization. That was a feat she never thought possible in itself. “It’s wonderful because I always wanted one card,” she said. Dickson is happy to be associated with the NPAA, an organization that supports amateur athletes by providing a fun, supportive atmosphere. She likes that the association gravitates towards the needs of each athlete. “It is top notch,” she said. Dickson has been competing for many years, but says she is done with that aspect of the bodybuilding lifestyle – for now. “I don’t think I’m going to compete again, but never say never,” she said. Just because she has stepped back from competition, doesn’t mean Dickson is retiring. The mom of two will be acting as a judge at the NPAA Championships, which she is squeezing in among a number of professional



pursuits while balancing a family life. Dickson maintains her incredible physique through intense workouts. She has a great workout partner, which she credits a lot of her success to – her boyfriend. “It’s amazing. It’s a lot of work,” she said. “My workouts have been extremely in-

end of the day, Dickson said she also just enjoys being in top physical form. “I love how it feels to be in this kind of shape,” she said. “It’s part of my business. It’s what I do.” Her workouts are done six-days a week. Dickson said she’s lucky that she can skip cardio and do a very intense one-hour workout targeting specific body parts. “I’m very fortunate that I don’t do cardio.” With two businesses, workouts, speaking engagements and fitness writing on her plate, Dickson said the number one important thing in her life is her children, aged nine and 12, and she always has time for them. “Don’t even ask me how I do it,” she said. “My children are not put on the back burner ever. Even if I don’t have the time, I make it.” On top of all that, Dickson said she is currently working on her biography to be released in 2013. At the upcoming NPAA show, Dickson will have her children watching from the audience for the first time ever. She can’t wait to have them cheer her on. “I hope that they follow in my footsteps in drive and passion in whatever field they decide to take on.”

Residents of and visitors to the City of Cranbrook are reminded that intentional feeding of deer, contravenes the City’s Deer Feeding Prohibition Bylaw, which came into effect in October 2010. The bylaw clearly states no one is to provide deer with food by intentionally leaving food, food waste or other attractive edible

material for the sole purpose of feeding deer. For example, leaving out a bale of hay, a bag of apples or other compostable food scraps on a residential lot or property where these items are not consistently being grown or produced for human consumption would be seen as an infraction to the bylaw. To be clear, farm operations, home fruit and

vegetable gardens intended for human consumption or ornamental plants and flowers will not be included as material intended for the sole purpose of feeding deer under the deer feeding bylaw. Anyone found violating the Deer Feeding Prohibition Bylaw will be committing an offense and can be fined on an escalating fine schedule; $100 for the

first offense, $200 for the second, $500 for the third. Each day a violation occurs constitutes a new and separate offense.

Norma Blissett chats with Alex Hanson, President of the Steelworkers Local 93 out of Sparwood, after winning the NDP nomination for Kootenay East Saturday, Sept. 22

Blissett gets Kootenay East NDP nomination Continued from page 1 Blissett has been polically active at the local level in Cranbrook, and will now be moving into the provincial sphere, a transition she’s prepared for. “With my background in forestry and education, those are both provincial concerns,” she said. “I’ve worked for provincial government in Ontario. I am aware of those issues and the impact they have at the municipal level. “It’s exciting — I’ve been to the

provincial convention, I’ve met with a number of the MLAs, so I feel pretty confident about being able to represent the people here at the provincial level.” Blissett told those assembled Saturday that the NDP’s task was now to increase the party profile locally . “So now it starts. We’ve got a big task ahead of us. (The upcoming campaign is) about coming together and working together as a party.” She also thanked Macnair for his efforts.

Operation Christmas Child 2012 Campaign gets underway Sept. 24 Submit ted

Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski recently signed a proclamation declaring the week of September 24th in Cranbrook as Operation Christmas Child Kick-Off week. Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and development organization. The project allows Canadians to fill shoeboxes with gifts, which then are collected and distributed to children living in desperate situations in developing countries of the world. The decorated shoeboxes are free and can be picked up at participating businesses, banks, churches and some schools in the city. You have until Nov 24 to find small gifts for your shoebox and then take it to your nearest dropoff center, where it will be shipped to a child in need. Operation Christmas Child began in 1993 and is the worlds largest Christmas Project for kids. This year’s target world wide is to reach a 20-year goal of filling 100 million gift shoeboxes. In 2011 Canadians collected 672,274 gift boxes. The East Kootenay figure was close to 5,000.


Dentists Dr. Craig Spowart (centre) and Dr. Brett Bevans purchased 100 copies of the 2013 Burn Fund calendar for clients, to benefit children suffering serious burns. Cranbrook firefighter Greg Green (left) accepted the donation on behalf of B.C. firefighters. The 16-month calendar costs a $10 donation and is available at the Townsman office, Rocky Mountain Print Solutions, the fire hall, city hall and Western Financial Place.

The Cranbrook Skating Club is calling one and all to come out and learn to skate on Sports Day, September 27. The club is welcoming anyone who wants to try on a pair of skates and get some ice time to come out for “All it Takes is a Pair of Skates” between 3:45 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Thursday at Memorial Arena. “The focus behind Sports Day is of course to increase physical activity across Canada,” said Debbie Mandryk, coach for the Cranbrook Skating Club. During the event, new skaters will get a chance to meet with local coaches and get a few pointers. Mandryk hopes some keen skaters will continue on in the program long after the free day. Adults are welcome, but Mandryk said helmets are mandatory for all learners. The Cranbrook Skating Club just started off its new season on September 20, and

learning how to skate. “We hope to double that,” Mandryk said. “We want people who maybe have never thought about skating for their children.” One of the great things about skating is the arena is always the same temperature and weather conditions. “In Canada we have cooler months for six months of the year. It’s something to do through the winter months that’s predictable,” Mandryk said. “It’s not weather dependent.” The program welcomes girls and boys and is a great foundation for sports like ringette, hockey, speed skating and figure skating. “We have just as many boys as girls,” Mandryk said. “The basic skating skills are needed for all of that.” On September 20, many boys were out on the ice in full hockey gear, from San Jose sharks fans to Boston Bruins enthusiasts. Mandryk said many boys come with fullcage helmets and other

hockey gear, which is both safe and fun for them. “Hockey gloves are very popular for the boys,” she said. There are many opportunities for skaters beyond a joyful turn around the rink. CanSkate is a Canada-wide program that teaches beginners of all ages how to skate thanks to qualified professional coaches. The program focuses on teaching children one step at a time in a group format. Children are allowed to progress at their own rate. Participants get to take home badges as their skills progress. After the basics, skaters can move up through the Skate Canada programming that cater to the unique goals and interests of each skater. Offered programs include CanPowerSkate, STARSkate and CompetitiveSkate. For more information, head to the Memorial Arena for “All it Takes is a Pair of Skates” or contact Debbie Mandryk at (250) 4892318.

Empathy aplenty but no cash at UBCM convention, Bennett says Dirk Meissner Canadian Press

VICTORIA — Hundreds of municipal politicians preparing to convince the British Columbia Liberal government to help pay for local sewer upgrades, the pothole brigade or memorial gardens can expect a sympathetic ear but little else at a week-long gathering in Victoria. Up to 1,500 delegates registered to attend the Union of B.C. Municipalities Convention starting Monday will receive polite but firm rejections of most funding requests, says Bill Bennett, minister of community, sport and cultural development. The conventions have historically served as occasions for previous Liberal governments to make big financial announcements — removing the tolls on the Coquihalla Highway, introducing smart meters and electrifying northern B.C. But Bennett says times have changed and saving money, not

spending it, is the order of the day. “I won’t be saying, ‘You’re wasting your time, there’s no money,’’’ said Bennett. “What I’ll be saying is, ‘We want to understand what your needs are. We want to understand what your challenges are.’ Then we’ll try to help people solve their problem.’’ “We don’t have a lot of money at this point,’’ he said. More than 200 resolutions are up for debate at the UBCM convention, including decriminalizing marijuana, banning shark fins and cleaning up tsunami debris, but Bennett said the hard issues revolve around funding infrastructure projects. “They will quite understandably argue that they need more money for the roads and the sewers and the water and the transit. We will say, ‘Yes, we know you need that.’’’ “But, I will also be raising the issue of local government generally trying to keep their ex-

penses down the way the province does,’’ Bennett said. “It will be a good, honest discussion with local government.’’ Bennett said cities such as Prince George and Penticton have been doing a solid job of managing their expenses. But others, which he did not name, have been giving their workers pay raises and spending a considerable amount of money. The B.C. Business Council released a study in May that examined municipal spending in Metro Vancouver. It found that municipal operating spending in Metro Vancouver increased 80 per cent from 2000 to 2010. The study concluded that the 21 Metro Vancouver municipalities

spent $3.1 billion on operations in 2010, up from $1.7 billion in 2000. B.C. government spending increased by 10 per cent over that same period. “We’ll be saying, ‘You’ve got to find the best, low-cost alternative to whatever it is that you want to do,’’’ Bennett said. “I have some real good honest to goodness empathy for the challenges they face, but we have to include in that discussion, however, a discussion about their rapidly escalating expenditures.’’ He said the province is currently in talks with the federal government on a new infrastructure funding model. That deal may not be complete until 2014, Bennett said.

LANGLEY, B.C. — The sole member of the B.C. Conservative party with a seat in the provincial legislature quit the party Saturday, after members voted against a leadership review for the current leader. John van Dongen emerged from the party’s annual general meeting saying he could not continue under the leadership of John Cummins. “I am turning in my BC Conservative party membership,’’ van Dongen told reporters shortly after about 70 per cent of party members who cast ballots voted against a review of Cummins’ leadership. “I could not in good conscience pretend that I could support John Cummins for a future premier. I don’t believe he has the capacity to do the job.’’ The MLA for Abbotsford South cited the party’s third-place finishes in two recent byelections as examples of Cummins inability to lead. Van Dongen, who bolted from the governing Liberals to the Conservatives after Christy Clark was chosen as that party’s new leader, said he

will sit as an Independent in the legislature. Earlier, the party announced that 71 per cent of about 1,000 members who cast ballots voted against a leadership review, and 29 per cent in favour. The leadership dispute centred around the leadership style and a $4,000 a month stipend for Cummins, a former Conservative MP federally. Cummins described the vote as procedural, and said nonetheless he was pleased with the results. He did acknowledge there is some “upset’’ among those who were pushing for a review but said he said he didn’t know what the issues are. “I can’t make heads nor tails. I’m not going to waste my time trying to. We’ve got an election to fight in eight months and that’s what we’re focusing on,’’ he told reporters. Van Dongen says he will go to the Liberal Party convention this fall, and left the door open to rejoining the party, although not under Clark’s leadership.

The proposed Zoning Bylaw amendment will change several sections of the “City of Cranbrook Zoning Bylaw No. 3737, 2012”. The purpose of the amendment is to clarify or define land uses as “permissable uses” within applicable zones, as well as revising a number of associated zone specific regulations. To enable increased flexibility for the siting of accessory buildings on a parcel, specific siting setbacks are proposed for accessory buildings within the “C-2 - Highway Commercial Zone” and the “C-3 - Neighbourhood Commercial Zone”. Setbacks for accessory buildings would be reduced from the current requirements which are the same as for principal or main buildings on a parcel. Updated provisions for an “accessory dwelling unit” specific to Hotels and Motels are added to the “C-2 - Highway Commercial Zone” to clarify permitted accessory uses. “Trucking and freight terminal” operations are added to the “M-1 - Clean Industrial Zone” and the “M-2 - Light Industrial Zone” as permissable uses to clarify and reflect those uses within the M-1 and M-2 zones. “City of Cranbrook Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 3754, 2012” may be inspected between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, from September 11, 2012, to October 1, 2012, inclusive, as posted on the bulletin board in the foyer at City Hall or in the office of the Municipal Clerk.

Trouble with a capital Tea “There are times these days when I feel as though I am a traitor to my English heritage. I drink coffee in the mornings, for crying out loud, and tea only occasionally in the afternoons.” John Bullock Quite recently I was delighted to be invited to a youngish lady’s birthday party, and during these festivities I was informed that the new, fashionable hoody jacket that the lady in question was wearing had been manufactured from coffee grounds. Now, I realize that I look goofy, but I am not that naïve. Fabric manufactured from coffee grounds sounded a little too weird even for me, but there was the manufacturer’s label assuring all and sundry that the coffee grounds present in the garment would prevent the gathering of bacteria and, consequently, of odour. On my way home, I wondered if the manufacturers of that hooded jacket sneaked around at night collecting old coffee grounds. It did seem a touch too unlikely. So, naturally, I wondered if the geniuses in jolly old England were working on the formula for making cloth and clothing from used tea bags. Whilst semi-conscious in my doctor’s office, I’d read an item in a magazine that had jolted me awake like one of those machines they use to resuscitate the almost

dead. It seems that Britain is inundated with used tea bags and the government is wondering how to get the country out from under the enormous, soggy weight before it is too late. Watching a film about Britain from the air sometime back, I was amused to note that there was always a huge demand on electricity immediately after a TV episode of The Eastenders or a major premier league soccer game and this was due to millions of home-owners simultaneously trotting off to their kettles and stoves in order to make a ‘nice cuppa tea’. Peter Also, during my extenWarland sive research into the subject stretching over several minutes on Google, I discovered that the British people consume an average of 165 million cups of tea per day and that, although seventy per cent of the discarded tea bags are compostable, the mountains of the remaining thirty per cent are turning flat lands into hilly terrain. Something has to be done. Then I spotted it. A company in Macclesfield is in the process of producing thread from used partly-filled, discarded tea bags and, from this fine silk-like thread, they are now weaving cloth. They are on their way to compete with those who make coffee clothing. It is one of those breakthroughs that is likely to change the way we live. I’ll not be able to look at a used teabag in the same way again.

Think of the uses for tea-bag clothing. Some of it surely can be shipped back to India and Ceylon as those gloriously coloured saris. Surely Sikhs would welcome tea-bag cloth for their ritual turbans. And there’s the possibility of weaving tea-bag cloth strong enough to be made into kilts. It’s very fashionable these days to boast of being Scottish and to get into the habit of sporting the many patterns now found in kilts — incidentally, kilts were invented by an Englishman for his Scottish labourers to wear, then later flogged by foreign con-men to naïve, pretend Scots, like the Royal Family loves to do at Balmoral. There is no end of opportunities. Imagine Arabs dashing about in their flowing robes, not knowing the source of the thread. Picture Hawaiians and sundry other Polynesians dancing hulas in fabrics manufactured in Manchester from tea bags. It boggles the mind. (Well!  Mine anyway) Copies of The Stars and Stripes would sell well in the Middle East for ceremonial stomping on, I’m assured, and, of course, there are some Britons who feel that it would be an excellent idea to export surplus white (tea-bag) sheets to the Ku Klux Klan in the U.S. as a sort of revenge for the Boston Tea Party, but they are probably just being nasty minded. It’s going to be interesting, that’s for sure. Peter Warland is a retired teacher living in Cranbrook.

CCT’s season kicks off Oct. 4 Submitted

Cranbrook Community Theatre’s (CCT) 2012‐2013 season kicks off in October. Beginning October 4 and running for three nights CCT — in co‐ production with Fort Steele Heritage Town — is proud to present “Babe Ruth Comes to Pickle River” by Canadian playwright Nelles Van Loon. Following a successful summer season at Fort Steele’s Wild Horse Theatre, the play will be re‐mounted at The Stage Door to give locals who may have missed the show at Fort Steele the opportunity to take in this charming production. This is the first time CCT and Fort Steele Heritage Town have worked together to remount a production. Babe Ruth Comes to Pickle River is about finding love in the early years of radio in Canada’s hinterlands. In 1932, Jane, a 30‐something woman pursuing one dream while avoiding several other bad ones, accidently arrives in Pickle River, a far‐ flung mining town in northern Ontario. There she meets Roy, a young entrepreneur who is launching a fledging radio station just as the medium is beginning to take the country by storm.

Lisa Aasebo and David Popoff play Jane and Roy, along with five other characters each. Lisa, who is professionally trained in theatre and musical theatre, hails from Vancouver. She is no newcomer to the Kootenays however, with three summer seasons at Fort Steele Heritage Town and a season with Kimberley Summer Theatre under her belt. Lisa has toured Western Canada with Jubilations Dinner Theatre and performed for over 25 years on stages and film sets throughout the Lower Mainland. David Popoff is a name known by many locals. David, a Cranbrook local who just graduated from Mount Baker Secondary School, has recently sweated it out on the set of Noises Off at Key City Theatre and recently completed a successful summer on the theatrical boards at Fort Steele. This will be David’s second time preforming at The Stage Door. Tanya Laing Gahr, a seasoned local director, directs this delightful and challenging play. “I fell in love with the play the first time I read the script, and fell in love with Lisa and David’s main charac-

FIELD, B.C. — A paleontologist who led a summer expedition to the world-renowned Burgess Shale in southeastern B.C. says he and his team have discovered what they believe could be the most significant new fossil bed in three decades. Jean-Bernard Caron, curator of invertebrate paleontology with the Royal Ontario Museum, and a team of researchers spent seven weeks working in Kootenay and Yoho national parks in July and August. “We found an important new site,” Caron said in a phone interview from Toronto. “It’s a significant fossil site. It was absolutely fantastic. We got really excited by the fossils we found. “It’s probably the most important in the past 30 years,” he added. Caron said the site — a

Lisa Aasebo and David Popoff launch Cranbrook Community Theatre’s dramatic season with “Babe Ruth Comes to Pickle River.” ters the first time I heard these two talented actors read for me,” Laing Gahr said. “It was a tremendous challenge to both director and actors. It takes a lot of talent and work for an actor to coax one fully formed character to life on stage; to create six characters —most of which are interacting with the primary characters — takes a whole

new level of depth and dedication.” This charming play reminds its audience of the magic of radio as a medium for communication. Radio gives audiences only sound, and allows their minds to fill in the blanks. Radio plays with rich, vivid landscapes, diverse characters, and swiftly changing backdrops were created using nothing more

than the actors’ voices and a few sound effects. Audiences will find many of those same magical pleasures in this production. Produced by Sally Masters, Babe Ruth Comes to Pickle River will run October 4, 5 & 6 at The Stage Door, Cranbrook. Tickets are $13 CCT members/$15 non‐members. Tickets available at Lotus Books, or at the door.

New fossil site found at Burgess Shale Co l e t t e D e r w o r i z Postmedia News

monday, september 24, 2012

top-secret location in Kootenay National Park — has organisms new to science and a number of rare species thought only to exist at the protected Walcott Quarry in Yoho. Walcott Quarry, a treasure of exquisitely fossilized, softbodied sea creatures, lies along a steep ridge between Mount Wapta and Field Mountain. It was discovered by Charles Doolittle Walcott in 1909 and is considered one of the most important fossil locations in the world, providing a rare glimpse of the rich density of life and how it was evolving 505 million years ago. Scientists, fossil fans and hikers come from around the world to make the 10-hour hike up the mountain to see the quarry, where Walcott spent eight years extracting more than 65,000 fossil specimens that became a key link in the study of evolution.

The area was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the early 1980s. Todd Keith, a Parks Canada manager who oversees the Burgess Shale, said the new site found by Caron and his team in nearby Kootenay National Park holds a lot of promise. “The initial perceptions of the researchers are that this new site could be comparable to Walcott Quarry in its importance,” Keith said. “Parks Canada is really keen that we can continue to provide access for these researchers to these sites.” Scientists require a permit to explore the area and collect specimens for research purposes. Much of what is known about the area comes from the Walcott and Raymond quarries. Other smaller yet still significant sites were discovered in 1981 and 2000. The Toronto-based Royal

Ontario Museum has been sending researchers to the area since 1975. Caron, who presented his preliminary findings Saturday at the Canadian Paleontology Conference in Toronto, said he can’t say much more about the new site or the fossils they found there until the research is complete, peer reviewed and published in scientific journals. “I need to stay quite tight lipped because of the significance of the site,” he said. “I know this is going to be something very hot and very important in the future. “It’s going to be something people will want to visit in the future.” Public guided tours of the other sites are available through Parks Canada and the Burgess Shale Geoscience Foundation during the summer months.

English soccer star retires from international play ahead of FA racism charge LONDON - Former England captain John Terry has quit international football ahead of his Football Association hearing on racism allegations. Despite being cleared in court of racially abusing Queens Park Rangers defender Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League match last year, Terry was due to face an FA charge in the next few days. The Chelsea defender was fired as captain in February but was allowed to continue playing for England. Terry said late Sunday in a statement released by his management group that the FA “in pursuing charges against me where I have already been cleared in a court of law, have made my position with the national team untenable.” Terry played 78 matches for England, scoring six goals, after making his debut in 2003 against Serbia and Montenegro.

Nitros win at home, lose on the road TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The feeling of victory didn’t last long for the Dynamiters. The Nitros skated away with a 4-1 victory at home over their divisional rivals in the Fernie Ghostriders on Saturday, but dropped a contest in Castlegar to the Rebels by the same score on Sunday. Kimberley scored once in the second period and twice in the third to overcome the Riders, while the Rebels broke a tie in the third period and scored three unanswered goals. Nitro tender Jeremy Mousseau stood in net for both games, earning the win and the loss, stopping 26 shots against the Ghosties and 37 shots against the

Rebels. The best rivalry in the KIJHL kicked off at the Civic Centre on Saturday night, and a player from both teams ended up in the penalty box before the puck even dropped, as they crossed the red line during the warm up. The ‘Riders struck first when Derek Georgopolous snapped a shot past Mousseau right off a face-off in the Dynamiters’ zone 10 minutes into the contest. With six minutes remaining in the opening frame, some great work in the offensive zone from Dallin Wolf, Aaron Shubert and Brett Luker translated into a goal, when Wolf took a feed from Luker and snapped a shot into the net.

“A big shift is always important, especially late in the second period, if you get the momentum behind you, you’re going to be good for the rest of the game to keep it going,” said Nitro forward Jared Marchi. Kimberley forward Dustin Long looked around in disbelief after a tap-in opportunity right off the crease somehow ended up underneath the Fernie goaltender before the period ended. Mousseau got some help from the iron in the second period, as the Riders nailed the post off an early rush. However, Corson Johnstone grabbed the lead for the Dynamiters just after the halfway mark of the second pe-

riod, tapping in a pass from Jared Marchi. The tempo of the game went up a notch in the second as the Nitros did a better job of gaining the offensive zone and pressruing the ‘Rider defence and goaltender. That tempo may have contributed to the ejection of Rider player Anthony Gardner, who argued with the officials after a scrum in the Fernie zone. Taylor McDowell scored the most exciting goal of the night, bobbling a breakaway feed in the neutral zone, but recovering the puck in time to lift a shot over the shoulder of the ‘Rider goaltender while killing a penalty. That seemed to break the Ghostriders’ back,

but Long added the final nail to the coffin, taking advantage of a turnover in the Fernie zone and burying the puck into the back of the net. It may have been the same score on Sunday, but not the result the Nitros wanted, as the Rebels won 4-1 in Castlegar. Castlegar drew first blood on a power play goal with eight minutes remaining in the second period. Nitro forward Aaron Shubert scored his first career goal to even up the contest late in the second period. The floodgates opened in the final period, as the Rebels scored two power play goals and an evenstrength marker break the tie and seal up the win.

Jones defends title against Belfort at UFC 152 NEIL DAVIDSON Canadian Press

TORONTO - Lightheavyweight champion Jon (Bones) Jones survived an early scare to submit former titleholder Vitor (The Phenom) Belfort in the fourth round at UFC 152 on Saturday night. Belfort was game and came close with an armbar in the first round. But Jones’ reach, varied attack and ground and pound took a toll on the veteran challenger, whose face went from bad to worse each round. Unable to get his

striking game going, Belfort tried to take the fight to the ground where he could use his jiu-jitsu. Most times, he paid a price doing it and finally fell victim to an Americana submission 54 seconds into the round. In the co-main event at the Air Canada Centre, Demetrious (Mighty Mouse) Johnson won a split 48-47, 47-48, 49-46 decision over Joseph Benavidez to become the UFC’s first flyweight (125pound) champion in a battle of cage-fighting Energizer bunnies.

Ice complete road trip with 5-1 loss to Hitmen TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

So far, the road has not been kind to the Kootenay Ice. The Ice followed their season-opening loss to the Edmonton Oil Kings with a 5-1 drubbing at the hands of the Calgary Hitmen on Saturday in the Saddledome. Once again, the Ice gave up the first goal and had to play catchup, but the Hitmen proved to be too much of a challenge.

Luke Philp was the lone goal scorer for the Kootenay Ice, with an assist to defenceman Joey Leach, who runs his streak to two games. Ice netminder Mackenzie Skapski made 26 saves in defeat, while Calgary’s Chris Driedger turned away 27 pucks. The two teams held each other scoreless until the last two minutes of the opening period, when Zane Jones took the puck off a failed wrap-around at-

tempt and fired it into the net. The Hitmen doubled their lead early in the second frame, when Cody Sylvester drove to the net and tipped in a pass off the wing from Greg Chase. Philp cut the deficit in half ten minutes later, scoring when he wound up and slapped a shot that deflected off a Hitmen defenceman’s stick. Calgary opened the throttle in the third period, scoring three

goals to put the game out of reach for the Ice. Darian Henry scored his first career goal, deflecting a shot from Sylvester, who spun and fired the puck at the net from the top of the offensive zone face-off circle. Jones potted his second of the night, banging in a feed from Brooks Macek, who drove the puck to the net from the wing and dished it off towards the slot. Macek himself

notched the final marker, scoring when his pass, while carving around the net, deflected across the goal line. Kootenay forward Levi Cable dropped the gloves with Kenton Helgesen, the latter getting the brunt of the discipline with a instigator and a game misconduct. The Ice were denied on all five power play opportunities, while the Hitmen failed to capitalize on three chances.

Snedeker wins Tour Championship and FedEx Cup Doug Ferguson Associated Press

ATLANTA - With the biggest round of his career, Brandt Snedeker won something far more valuable than money Sunday. He proved to himself he could beat the best in the world. Snedeker knew his best chance to be the FedEx Cup champion was to win the Tour Championship, no simple task with East Lake as tough as ever and Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods going after the same prize. Snedeker was the only player in the last five groups to break par. He answered the final challenge with three big birdies on the back nine, building such a big lead that his final tee shot sailed into the grandstands to the left of the 18th green and it didn’t even matter. Snedeker still closed with a 2-under 68 for a three-shot win in the Tour Championship, and a $10 million bonus for winning the FedEx Cup. But this was never about money. “I think it solidifies what I already know,” Snedeker said. “I think when I play my best golf, my best golf is some of the best in the world. I’ve never had more confidence in myself than I have the last five weeks, and I made sure that I kept

telling myself that all day. I am one of the best players in the world. This is supposed to happen. It’s OK to feel nervous, and no matter what I feel today, everybody else in the field feels exactly the same way I do. “So go out there and get it done. I did a great job of that.” McIlroy, the best player in golf this year and the No. 1 seed going into the Tour Championship, faded early by dropping four shots in a four-hole span on the front nine. So did Woods, who already was 3 over on his round before making his first birdie on the par-5 ninth. Snedeker wound up with a three-shot victory over Justin Rose (71) to win the Tour Championship, his second win this year and a trophy that came with $1.44 million. Add the $10 million bonus from the FedEx Cup, and it’s the richest payoff in golf. Big deal. The 31-year-old from Nashville, Tenn., calls that kind of money “crazy talk ... like winning the lottery.” Far greater perspective came from a 30-minute hospital visit Sunday morning with Tucker Anderson, the son of his swing coach who was critically injured in a car accident and is in a responsive coma.

Suspect officiating decisions during several games contributed to a chaotic third Sunday of the NFL season. Replacement officials admitted making two mistakes in Minnesota’s victory over San Francisco, while several other games included questionable calls that could have affected the outcomes. Referee Ken Roan said he twice granted 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh video challenges after Harbaugh called timeout in the fourth quarter. Neither challenge should have been allowed once Harbaugh asked for time.

“What I told him was, ‘Well you challenged it not knowing what the result of the play was going to be,’ ” Roan said. “So I granted him the challenge and we went and looked at it. That was wrong. I should not have.” Both mistakes happened in the span of six plays in Minnesota’s 24-13 upset of the 49ers. “My interpretation of it was that he could do that based upon the time factors and not knowing it was a challengeable play to begin with when he called timeout,” Roan said. “If you don’t have a timeout to lose, you can’t make a challenge.” Earlier Sunday, the

NHL, NHLPA set to meet, will discuss revenues from last season

TORONTO - The NHL and NHL Players’ Association are set to meet for the first time in nearly two weeks, but a discussion about a new collective bargaining agreement isn’t on the agenda. Instead, the sides will discuss the accounting for last season’s hockey-related revenue when they sit down together Monday morning in Toronto. It’s the first time they’ve met since Sept. 12, when each side tabled a proposal. Neither gained any traction. The league enacted a lockout when the CBA expired three days later. The work stoppage has already caused a delay in the start of training camps and prompted the cancellation of September’s pre-season games. Canadian Press

Brandt Snedeker reacts after sinking his putt on the 18th hole to win the Tour Championship golf tournament and the FedEx Cup on Sunday in Atlanta. “I asked him if he thought I was going to beat Rory McIlroy, and he gave me a wink,” Snedeker said. He beat McIlroy out of the FedEx Cup, and everyone else in his way at East Lake. Ryan Moore was tied for the lead with birdies on the 14th and 15th holes, only to make bogey on the last three holes for a 70 to tie for third with Luke Donald (67). McIlroy had won the last two playoff events and three of his last four tournaments dating to his record eightshot win at the PGA Championship. He still is virtually a lock to be voted PGA Tour player of the year, but he had

Replacement officials fumble calls, players urge NFL boss to settle lockout Barry Wilner Associated Press

players’ union posted an open letter to team owners calling on them to end the lockout of the regular officials that began in June when their contact expired. The NFL used replacements in 2001 for one week before a new deal was reached. This year, criticism from coaches and players has mounted for the replacements, who come from lower college levels or from other leagues such as Arena Football. There have been numerous complaints by players and coaches certainly more than when the regular officials work - and Sunday was no different.

to settle for second place - and a $3 million bonus - in the FedEx Cup. And so ends the most successful year yet in the FedEx Cup four wildly entertaining playoff events packed with the biggest names, even if the No. 1 player in the world wound up at No. 2. “I’m a little disappointed, but at the same time, Brandt really deserves to win,” McIlroy said. “He played the best golf out of anyone. He knew what he needed to do. He needed to come in here and win. He controlled his own destiny, just like I did. And he was able to come and do that. So

because of that, he really deserves it.” How can Snedeker explain winning the FedEx Cup over a player who won twice during the playoffs? “Life is all about timing,” he said, grinning. Snedeker, who finished on 10-under 270, won for the fourth time in his career and moved into the top 10 in the world for the first time. It also was his first time winning with a share of the lead going into the last day. In his previous three wins, he came from five shots, six shots and seven shots behind, the latter at Torrey Pines this year.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) When you hit an obstacle, you have no choice but to leap over it. You might try other approaches at first, only to discover that nothing else really works. Communication demonstrates how much support you have. Tonight: Where your friends are. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You will want to understand what is going on around you. The only way to find answers is to detach and become less invested in what goes down. You might have a difficult time staying neutral and open. Tonight: Nap, then decide. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Deal with a parent, partner or associate directly. You will see this conversation as a shortcut, as you will eliminate a problem. Your creativity might be off right now. Work with the ideas at hand. Later in the day, new solutions will come forward. Tonight:Try to think outside the box. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Others seek you out. On some level, you might feel as if you are in the

doldrums. Your fatigue might be a result of a mini-depression. A discussion with a dear friend or loved one opens many doors -- one of which will be an escape hatch. Tonight: Dinner with a favorite person. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You have a lot to get done, and you will do just that if you can just focus. Do not approach others negatively. Your dynamic personality sometimes needs taming, and right now could be a prime example. You do not need to feel pushed or pressed. Your effectiveness will amplify with a little less impulsiveness. Tonight: Take the most sociable invitation. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Stay even when dealing with someone in your day-to-day life. Several people could be bouncing off the walls. Your creativity allows you more options than many people could provide you. You might want to bring in a dear friend who has a unique slant on creating plans. Tonight: Relax; put your feet up. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Your mind keeps drifting toward a family matter, domestic issue or a property or real-estate investment. You have been trying to avoid this

For Better or Worse

thought, but it would be better to deal with it now. You’ll feel more in tune with yourself and others as a result. Tonight: Kick up your heels as soon as you can. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Keep communication flowing, and understand that some topics are too taboo. If a barrier emerges, you could have more problems with opening up a situation. Help others feel more comfortable, and you will gain as well. Tonight: Try to make it early. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Be aware of upcoming expenditures. You could have difficulty with a certain situation or friendship that seems to hold you back. Sometimes, you need to let go and take a leap of faith. Try it! Tonight: Catch up on someone’s news. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might feel as though you are totally in the moment, and also that someone is testing your authority. A male or assertive friend pushes you in a new direction. If you can absorb this person’s ideas, you’ll come up with an even better one. Tonight: Others seek you out.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Much is going on behind the scenes that you choose not to share, yet a lack of communication could make you feel uncomfortable. You might need to break the ice. Someone might be too much into his or her position or being right. Tonight: Take a relaxing stroll. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Zero in on what is important to you. Understand that someone you care about could hold information back or even refuse to converse at all. Seek out a different source or someone who could enlighten you with even more insight. Tonight: Don’t push. It is only Monday. BORN TODAY Actor Kevin Sorbo (1958), businessman Joseph P.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been with my boyfriend, “Tom,” for more than a year. We love each other very much. However, early in our relationship, I was coming out of a rough breakup with my ex. I made a huge mistake thinking I could keep the ex as a friend. We met for dinner and ended up kissing. I confessed to Tom, who briefly broke things off. He eventually took me back, and I haven’t spoken to my ex since. The problem is, Tom’s sister and mother have not been so forgiving. His sister ignores or insults me when I come to their house. Tom’s mother does the same, although only when his sister is around. At first I accepted it because I deserved it. But it’s been nearly a year, and things have only gotten worse. I have apologized repeatedly, to no avail. Tom’s best friend recently moved in with him, and now the guy’s girlfriend is at Tom’s house a lot. We used to be on good terms, but they have poisoned her against me. Tom doesn’t want to be involved and gets defensive when I tell him how disrespectful his sister is toward me. He says she’s just socially inept, which could be true, but still. I don’t know how much longer I can take such treatment, and frankly, I’m not sure I deserve it. -- Enough Is Enough Dear Enough: Your problem isn’t Tom’s family. It’s Tom. If he had truly forgiven you and was committed to your relationship, he would not permit his family to treat you so poorly. He is still punishing you -- by proxy. His unwillingness to “be involved” means your relationship is not going to improve anytime soon. Tom may not be capable of genuine forgiveness, and it’s better to know it sooner than later. Dear Annie: Why don’t some people know when to go home after dinner? We enjoy cocktails and appetizers for two hours beforehand and continue to socialize during a leisurely dinner and dessert. However, these guests stay long after the coffee is behind us. We have even started removing the dishes, but they just don’t get the hint. Without being rude and handing them their car keys, what is the best way to let these guests know that we are tired and want to call it a day? -- Tired in Toutle Dear Toutle: Try talking about your plans for the next morning, asking your guests if they need a ride home, turning on the porch light or offering to get their coats. If these things don’t work, you can always say, “This has been so much fun, but it’s late, and I have an early morning. Let’s get together again soon.” Dear Annie: I would like to respond to “Cape Coral, Fla.,” whose university student son is finding college math professors unfeeling, unhelpful and uncaring. As a college math instructor, I admit that we have our share of sub-par teachers. I think this is due to two factors: First, the material can be challenging to explain, and second, it is often the case that a person who is gifted mathematically is lacking in social skills. That being said, I agree with your advice to find a tutor on campus. As I have told many a student: Don’t let your instructor stand in the way of your education. Students must learn to be resourceful and seek out assistance as soon as they encounter difficulty. More importantly, most of the students who struggle in my classes have poor study habits. In the end, their education is their responsibility. -Math Teacher in Montreal Dear Readers: Today is Family Day ( Studies show that children who eat dinner with their parents have a reduced risk of substance abuse. Please try to make meals a family event. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Doctors nix backyard trampolines Sheryl Ubel acker Canadian Press

TORONTO — Just as kids love to bounce on beds, they are also drawn to the joy of jumping on trampolines — a pastime that has likely become more popular since Canadian Rosie MacLennan clinched gold in the Olympic version of the sport. But doctors warn that backyard and other recreational trampolines pose a significant risk of injury, especially to younger children. In an updated policy statement issued Monday, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) “strongly discourages’’ the use of recreational trampolines, either at home or in commercial indoor parks that feature the highflying gymnastics equipment. In January, the Canadian Paediatric Society reaffirmed a similar position statement last issued in 2007. “The key thing is that three-quarters of injuries occur when there are multiple users on the mat,’’ said Dr. Michele LaBotz, co-author of the AAP statement. “And you see that all the time: adults like to be on the trampoline, bouncing with the kids,’’ LaBotz said from Portland, Me., where she

practises pediatric sports medicine. “And especially when you get those disparate sizes — you get a real big person and a real small person — the small person is much more likely to get injured, 14 times more likely to get injured. “And the injury sustained by a smaller person is much more likely to be severe. So in children less than the age of five, for instance, their rate of fractures and dislocations is 48 per cent.’’ Injuries can range from broken wrists, dislocated shoulders and sprained ankles to severe head and neck trauma. About one in 200 trampoline injuries leads to permanent neurological damage, a U.S. study in 2000 found. One injury unique to trampoline use is a form of broken leg called a proximal tibia fracture that is primarily seen in children under age six, she said. “Most of them have occurred on the trampoline with older folks. One principle a lot of us kind of overlook when we think about the trampoline is that most injuries actually occur on the centre mat itself. “If you get an adult who’s about 170 pounds bouncing with a kid who’s 40 to 50 pounds, the recoil of the mat, when that kid lands —

The American Academy of Pediatrics is warning that backyard and other recreational trampolines pose a significant risk of injury, especially to younger children. and especially if he’s not landing right — he generates about the same amount of force as if he went from nine feet (three metres) onto a hard surface. “And you don’t think of that because the mat’s kind of soft and bouncy,’’ LaBotz said. That means that netting around a trampoline, aimed at stopping a jumper from falling off the equipment, or protective coverings on the surrounding springs, will not prevent about two-thirds of injuries, which occur on the cen-

tral mat. Head and neck injuries most often result from a failed flip or airborne somersault on the trampoline, she said. “So that’s why we have such a strong recommendation against that particular stunt.’’ Almost 98,000 trampoline-related injuries are estimated to have occurred in the U.S. in 2009, the latest year for which statistics are available, down from a high of more the than 109,500 in 2006. In Canada, 4,247 cases of trampoline in-

juries were reported over the five most recent years of data. That figure does not represent all such injuries in Canada, but only those treated in the emergency departments of 15 hospitals in the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP). More than 40 per cent of injuries involved children aged five to nine, and more than eight per cent of all those injured had to be hospitalized. Between 2005/06 and 2009/2010, the rate of trampoline

injuries almost doubled in Canada, CHIRPP found. Lower limbs were the most frequently injured (43 per cent), followed by the upper extremities (36 per cent) and the head, face and neck (15 per cent). Overall, fractures accounted for 43.5 per cent of all injuries, while about three per cent involved brain trauma. In the U.S., the number of trampoline injuries started declining in 2007, though it’s not clear why, LaBotz said. One theory is that children and teens began spending more time on computers. With the societal push to get kids more physically active due to the growing childhood obesity epidemic, some parents may see the trampoline as a fun way to get kids moving. LaBotz said backyard trampolines are marketed as “play toys or playground types of equipment,’’ with pictures of children, and even a whole family, all bouncing together. “And parents are struggling now to pull their kids away from the computer and the video games. And it’s easy to see how it might seem like a good, fun, relatively inexpensive thing to do. “But it’s not.’’

The emergence of trampoline as a competitive sport — it was added to the Summer Olympics in 2000 — has also likely driven its popularity as a recreational activity. David Ross, MacLennan’s coach at Skyriders Trampoline Place in Richmond Hill, Ont., north of Toronto, acknowledged that backyard trampolines are fun for kids. But he advised parents to treat the bouncy platforms the same way as they would a swimming pool, making sure the yard is enclosed by a fence and that the equipment is used properly. “I’m not saying it’s a bad thing to have a backyard trampoline; it’s certainly better to exercise than not to exercise,’’ he told The Canadian Press. “But it does give the sport a bad name because there are so many people doing unsupervised, maybe stupid things on their backyard trampolines. “The biggest danger of any trampoline is if you land upside-down. So if you’re on a backyard trampoline that doesn’t allow you to jump very high, you probably shouldn’t be doing flips. Or if you do them, you should have learned how to do them first somewhere.’’

Feds revamp Laura Secord image for 1812 promo Mark Brownlee Postmedia News

OTTAWA - Federal government officials decided against using a historical image of War of 1812 icon Laura Secord in favour of creating a “younger” version commemorate the conflict’s 200th anniversary this year, newly disclosed records show. Secord has played a prominent role in events the government is holding to educate Canadians about what happened during the war, which pitted the United States against Britain in a battle to control territory that is now Canada. The first drafts of the campaign featured a portrait of Secord alongside three other figures from the war and “1812” inside a maple leaf. The words “The fight for Canada” appear at the bottom in French and English.

She has a bow tucked just underneath her collar and is wearing what appears to be a shawl over her hair. Her face appears to be wrinkled. The officials instead commissioned a line drawing from an artist that showed Secord with hair flowing down the back of her head and a dress that shows more of her neck. “I think this addresses the younger version of ... Laura Secord that was requested,” wrote Anne-Sophie Lawless, the director of creative solutions and outreach with the Department of Canadian Heritage’s communications branch, in an email on July 26, 2011.

Federal government officials decided against using a historical image of War of 1812 icon Laura Secord in favour of creating a younger version to commemorate the conflict’s 200th anniversary this year, newly disclosed records show. peared in the government’s promotional materials for the commemoration portrays Secord with a brightened, unlined face and brown hair on the top of her head with no covering. The images of the other three figures — Maj. Gen. Sir Isaac Brock, native war chief Tecumseh and Lt.-Col. Charles-Michel d’Irumberry de Salaberry — all appear to be the same as in the original

shown in the documents. Two of them came from Library and Archives Canada, the emails note, meaning they are likely historical documents. Canadian Heritage officials made the decision because they could not find an image of “suitable quality” for their requirements, wrote Len Westerberg, spokesman for the department, in an emailed response to ques-

tions. They needed “high resolution images, in a large format.” Officials spiked others because they couldn’t find their copyright holders. Secord is best known for the roughly 30-kilometre journey she made in 1813 to warn Canadian forces of an impending attack by American soldiers, according to the Canadian Heritage website. First Nations warriors, who

were fighting alongside the British, ambushed the Americans two days later and forced them to surrender. She was in her late 30s at the time, making the younger version of her portrayed in the promotional material appear a little closer to the age she was when the event took place. This isn’t the first time the image of Secord has been changed. The most recognizable portrait of her is the logo for the Canadian-based chocolate company with which she shares her name. The company replaced the older-looking version of her with a younger one in the middle of the last century, then changed it again along similar lines in the 1990s. The Canadian government has been holding events throughout the year to mark the war’s anniversary

Obama, Romney, face tough questions on ‘60 Minutes’ Lee-Anne Goodman Canadian Press

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, the man who hopes to deny him a second term in the Oval Office, appeared in duelling interviews on Sunday on “60 Minutes,’’ the highly rated CBS news show that has long wielded influence over American presidential politics. In an interview airing two days before Obama was slated to address the United Nations, the president brushed off repeated accusations by Romney that he’s weak on national defence, adding that if Romney “is suggesting that we should start another war — he should say so.’’ Obama defended his efforts to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and touted his successful attempts to track down and eliminate Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He suggested he wasn’t going to be cajoled into any course of action in terms of action against Iran from Romney or Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “When it comes to our national security decisions, any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people,’’ he told CBS’s Steve Kroft. “And I am going to block out any noise that’s out there.’’ Obama, greying and looking fatigued during his interview, sat down with “60 Minutes’’ on Sept. 12, the day after America’s Libyan ambassador was killed in an eruption of antiAmerican violence in the Middle East. He had harsh criticism for Romney’s much-maligned re-

Romney erroneously stated that the White House apologized to the perpetrators of the violence in the early hours of the turmoil. “It appears that Gov. Romney didn’t have his facts right,’’ Obama told “60 Minutes.’’ “Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. And as president, one of the things I’ve learned is that you can’t do that; that, you know, it’s important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts; and that you’ve thought through the ramifications before you make them.’’ He also deflected criticism from Romney over his decision not to sit down with Netanyahu this week at the UN. Romney, meantime, in his own interview, said that decision “sends a message throughout the Middle East that somehow we distance ourselves from our friends and I think the

exact opposite approach is what’s necessary.’’ Both men were asked difficult questions about their vulnerabilities. Romney has been under fire for recently revealed remarks that almost half of Americans feel they’re entitled to government handouts. But even as Obama pulls ahead of him nationally and in key battleground states, Romney said his campaign “doesn’t need a turnaround.’’ “I’ve got a very effective campaign. It’s doing a very good job. But not everything I say is elegant.’’ Obama, plagued by an economic recession and a stubbornly high unemployment rate, was asked why he’s had little success pushing a job creation bill through Congress or to kickstart a sputtering economic recovery. “We still have a long way to go,’’ he said, but pointed to 30

months of job growth and tax cuts for middle-income Americans. His opponent’s agenda, he added, would amount to going “backwards to the very policies that got us into this mess.’’ “The problem that Gov. Romney has is that he seems to only have one note: tax cuts for the wealthy and rolling back regulations as a recipe for success. Well, we tried that vigorously between 2001 and 2008. And it didn’t work out so well.’’ Obama admitted some shortcomings, saying his most significant letdown during his four years in office has been an inability to change the culture of the U.S. capital. But he also pointed to some of his accomplishments since becoming president, including passing his sweeping healthcare overhaul and implementing reforms to the country’s financial industry. “Change has happened, and positive change for the American people,’’ he said. In Romney’s interview, the Republican presidential hopeful harshly criticized Obama’s vision for America, saying it involved too much government involvement in the lives of Americans. He was asked why Americans should trust him given he has changed his opinion on several fronts. He was pro-choice, for example, 10 years ago when he was governor of Massachusetts; he’s now pro-life. “The principles I have are the principles I’ve had from the beginning of my political life. But have I learned? Absolutely,’’ he said. When pushed by CBS’s Scott Pelley to provide details about his tax proposals, Romney deferred. “That’s something Congress

Canadian reported among missing in Nepal avalanche Associated Press

KATMANDU, Nepal — Officials say at least nine people are dead and several others missing, including a Canadian, after an avalanche hit climbers on a high Himalayan peak in Nepal today. Many of the climbers were French or German but the U.K.-based The Telegraph website reported that one of the missing people is Canadian. Dipendra Paude of Nepal’s tourism ministry, which controls all international climbing expeditions, told The Telegraph the dead climbers were from Spain, Germany and Nepal. The Telegraph said the missing included five French nationals, a Canadian and an Italian climber. A spokeswoman for the De-

partment of Foreign Affairs in Ottawa could not immediately confirm that a Canadian was among those missing. Police official Basanta Bahadur Kuwar said the bodies of a Nepalese guide and a German man were recovered and that rescue pilots had spotted seven other bodies on the slopes of Mount Manaslu in northern Nepal, the eighthhighest mountain in the world. Ten other climbers survived the avalanche but many were injured and were flown to hospitals by rescue helicopters, Kuwar said. Rescue pilot Pasang, who uses only one name, said three injured French citizens and two Germans had been transported to hospitals in Kathmandu. He said rescuers were also attempting to bring the bodies

of the dead back to the base camp. Weather conditions were deteriorating and it was not possible to continue air searches of the mountain Sunday afternoon, Kuwar said. The avalanche hit the climbers at a camp at 7,000 metres (22,960 feet) early in the morning as they were preparing to head toward the summit, which is 8,156 metres (26,760 feet) high. There were Italian, German and French teams on the mountain, with a total of 231 climbers and guides, but not all were at the higher camps, officials said. It is currently the beginning of Nepal’s autumn mountaineering season. The autumn season comes right after the end of the monsoon rains, which make weather condi-

tions unpredictable, and is not as popular among mountaineers as the spring season, when hundreds of climbers crowd the high Himalayan peaks. Nepal has eight of the 14 highest peaks in the world. Climbers have complained in recent years that climbing conditions have deteriorated and risks of accidents have increased. Veteran mountain guide Apa, who has climbed Mount Everest a record 21 times, travelled across Nepal earlier this year campaigning about the effects of global warming on the mountain peaks. He told The Associated Press the mountains now have considerably less ice and snow, making it harder for climbers to use ice axes and crampons on their boots to get a grip on the slopes.

and I will have to work out together,’’ he said, adding that although “the devil’s in the details, the angel is in the policy, which is creating more jobs.’’ He defended the tax rate that millionaires like him pay — below 15 per cent on investment income. “I think it’s the right way to encourage economic growth — to get

people to invest, to start businesses, to put people to work,’’ he said. When asked how he thinks he’ll fare on Nov. 6, Romney replied with a smile: “Oh, I think I’m going to win.’’ In 10 days, Romney and Obama will have a chance to go head to head on the issues. The first of three presidential debates is being held on Oct. 3 in Denver.

Cat goes to vet for flea bath, gets put down instead Associated Press

GARDNER, Mass. — A Massachusetts woman says her cat went to the veterinarian for a flea bath but was mistakenly put to death. Colleen Conlon of Gardner is grieving the loss of 8-year-old Lady, which she attributes to negligence by the vet, Muhammad Malik. Malik’s lawyer says people should wait until all the facts come out before passing judgment. Conlon’s 24-year-old son, Jesse, took Lady to the Broadway Animal Hospital last week and unknowingly authorized the cat to be put to sleep after he says he was handed the wrong forms. He says he learned of the mix-up when he returned with a second cat and the vet asked whether he wanted to keep the body. “At first he thought it was some cruel joke,’’ Conlon told the Telegram & Gazette news-

paper. But the vet told her son he’d signed the papers. Her son didn’t leave the other cat at the vet’s office, Conlon said. Conlon said she has filed a complaint with the state attorney general’s office and plans to talk with state licensing officials. “I don’t think there was any malicious intent, but I do think it was negligent,’’ Conlon said. “I’m sure there are standards of practice they have to follow.’’ Conlon’s daughter had given her the cat about a year before she was killed in a car accident in 2010. Malik’s lawyer, Michael Sheridan, said Malik is well-respected and has saved many animals’ lives during his 30 years as a veterinarian. “He’s treated thousands of animals, keeping them healthy and strong,’’ Sheridan said.

Man said he wanted to ‘be one with the tiger’ A s s o c i at e d P r e s s

NEW YORK — New York City police say they plan to arrest a man mauled by a tiger at the Bronx Zoo. NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said Saturday that 25-year-old David Villalobos told investigators that he deliberately leaped into a zoo exhibit because he wanted to “be one with the tiger.’’ Browne says the hospitalized victim will be charged with tres-

passing. Villalobos remained hospitalized in stable condition Saturday after the 400-pound cat bit him in the back. He also suffered broken bones in the jump Friday from an elevated train that circles the exhibit. The police spokesman says that when a police officer asked Villalobos why he did it, the victim responded, “Everybody in life makes choices.’’
