Horses wow the crowds in Idaho Fort Steele’s iconic Clydesdales have returned with hardware from Draft Horse Show Annalee Grant Townsman Staff

Fort Steele’s iconic Clydesdales were well received at this past weekend’s Idaho Draft Horse Show, snatching up ribbons left and right. Tyler Setzer, livestock manager for Fort Steele Heritage Town, said the farm’s best plac-

ing was the 4-up driving team landing second over all. They also thrilled the crowd with their Michigan Big Wheel earning first place for farming equipment. “The horses did absolutely stunning,” he said. The horses travelled to Sandpoint, Idaho for the third

The average annual temperature in the Columbia Basin is expected to rise about 2.3 degrees Celsius by 2050, a study on climate change has found. That temperature change could result in more frequent landslides, floods, droughts and wildfires, and an increase in diseases, pathogens, invasive species and pests. Columbia Basin Trust released the study, From Dialogue

Study shows East Kootenay warming up Continued from page 1 Also predicted are earlier and larger spring freshets, lower water levels in streams in summer, higher water levels in streams in winter, reduced soil moisture, more extreme weather events, and increased variability in weather. There could be up to four times as many warm summer days and nights, and increases in the temperature of the average hottest day of the month by a range of 0.4 C to 4.7 C. There is likely to be about six per cent less rain in summer by the 2050s, but about seven per cent more precipitation in winter. However, more could fall as rain than snow at low elevations, which would decrease snowpacks and negatively affect ski resorts. But warmer, longer summers would be good news for water recreation, hiking and mountain biking. As our streams and lakes shift from being snowfed to rain-fed or a mixture of both, it may mean an earlier spring melt and earlier peak flows, leading to lower late-summer flows. What’s more, the increase of rain on snow in winter could mean more runoff, potentially triggering landslides and flooding. Warmer summer temperatures and less summer rain, on the other hand, could lead to more frequent and more intense droughts. The same changes may contribute to an increase in diseases, as well as the length of time those diseases can be transmitted. The ranges of mosquitoes, ticks, rodents and fungi could also increase. The climate changes could allow invasive species and pests to prosper, while bringing a decline in wetlands and alpine tundra ecosystems. We are likely to see more extreme rain or snow events. Storms that used to happen every five, 10 or 25 years could occur two to three times more often. When combined with an increase in runoff and higher winter peak flows, this drastic precipitation can result in a greater potential for flooding, and it could occur earlier in the year. Freeze and thaw cycles could happen more often, placing increased stress on road surfaces, rail lines, buildings and pipes. Increases in summer temperatures, more frequent very hot days, longer warm spells, less rain in summer and pest outbreaks may also increase wildfire frequency. By 2100, fires in B.C. have been projected to increase by between 21 per cent and 190 per cent. On the positive side, climate change could extend the growing season by between 18 and 35 days compared to 1971 to 2000. Unfortunately, food production and distribution would be challenged globally as food transportation systems and supplies are affected by extreme weather events. That means that households may need to capitalize on the basin’s agricultural advantages by growing their own produce. There may be fewer days we need to heat our homes, from 6,100 days during 1961-1990, down to 5,500 days between 2041 to 2070. Climate change is diminishing B.C. glaciers, with scientists measuring a 16 per cent loss of total glacial area in the basin between 1986 and 2000. That may lead to a rise in water temperatures in our streams and lakes, which could disrupt aquatic species such as bull trout, and decrease water quality if bacteria and algae can flourish in warmer water.

The Fort Steele Clydesdales strut their stuff.

Ft. Steele horses impress in Idaho Continued from page 1 Some of the horses out of the eight brought to Idaho were at their first ever show. Setzer said it took months of preparation. One horse named Mike began training in January to be ready for the September event. Training includes using the horses for farm work around Fort Steele and the top horses are selected for competition.

“It takes weeks of hard work to get ready for a show,” Setzer said. “They’re working pretty good now.” The horses are also fed special supplements year-round to keep them in top form. A collection of youth travelled to Idaho to drive teams this year. Setzer was also joined by Glenda Larson and Dave

Cummings in the ladies’ and seniors’ classes. In total Fort Steele competed in 12 classes with eight horses including the six-horse hitch. This is the second show of the year the Clydesdales have attended, after travelling to Armstrong, B.C., earlier this summer. They also participated in the Calgary Stampede doing logging demos and in

various local parades. Setzer said the shows and other appearances help promote Fort Steele wherever they travel. “It’s really picking up,” he said. “I believe it’s going to bring people to the park.” He hopes they can expand the number of appearances made by the horses to further spread the word about Fort Steele and all it has to offer.

Councils call for pot decriminalization Tom Fle tcher Black Press

VICTORIA – After a passionate debate and a close vote, delegates to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention passed a motion Wednesday calling on the federal government to decriminalize marijuana. The UBCM placed major emphasis on the debate this year, staging a debate Monday featuring former B.C. attorney general Geoff Plant, in favour of loosening pot laws, and University of the Fraser Valley criminologist Darryl Plecas opposed. After a lineup of speakers on the impact of marijuana grow ops on communities and crime impact, a show of hands by hundreds of delegates supported the call for decriminalization. Metchosin councillor Moralea Milne reminded delegates that Plant termed pot prohibition “a disastrous and expensive failure of public policy.” She said more than 500,000 B.C. residents have smoked marijuana, but she doesn’t support its use. “Personally I’d rather have a martini, and and I’m allowed to, because we changed that very wrong prohibition stance that we had,” Milne said. Okanagan-Similkameen area director Tom Siddon, a former federal cabinet minister, said

his local police reject decriminalization. “I think we’ve been frying too many brains,” Siddon said. “It’s going to aggravate the temptation of young people to move from marijuana, which may well be more harmless than a few bottles of beer, to being hooked on heroin, cocaine and the chemical designer drugs.” Prince George city councillor Brian Skakun drew laughter with his comment: “I tried it when I was younger, I turned out OK.” Turning serious, he said the costs extend to police and courts weighed down with marijuana cases rather than “real criminals.” Abbotsford councillor Henry Braun agreed with Siddon. “We produce about 1.5 million pounds of marijuana in British Columbia,” Braun said. “We consume about 185,000 pounds, so the vast majority of marijuana is being exported to the U.S. and other places.” Port Moody councillor Bob Elliott said his “quaint, safe city” has seen three gang-related murders in the past six months. He pleaded for support for decriminalization. Coquitlam councillor Terry O’Neill called decriminalization “the worst of all worlds,” protecting people from simple possession

The next day, I went to the NFL official. “I’ve decided to submit my resignation,” I told the league apparatchik. “You’re a replacement official,” he replied. “You are our property until we decide to let you go. Now, Sunday, Cowboys versus Redskins. You’re umpire. Be there early.” But I didn’t go. I fled the U.S. in the dead of night, and am now a fugitive from the NFL. As I got off the bus, back in Canada, a fellow approached me. “I hear you’re interested in sports,” he said. “How do you feel about playing a little replacement NHL hockey?”

A papermaking detective story


a visit to the London Science Museum in 1911, Dard Hunter came across a display that would completely change his life. The exhibit showcased papermaking, using a process most people at that time had never seen before. This paper was being made by hand. Hunter was completely captivated by the historic moulds and tools being displayed. From that day on, Dard Hunter dedicated his entire life to papermaking by hand; and in the process solved a thousand-year-old mystery. Born in 1883 and raised in eastern Ohio, Hunter tried his hand at a variety of careers: printer, newspaper artist, bookbinder, stained glass window maker, and even a magician’s aid. But it was the papermaking craft which gripped him so completely that he and his wife built a paper mill outside their home in New York. Hunter then spent every free moment he could travelling to some of the most remote parts of the world, seeking out and documenting ancient methods of making paper. Even then he felt modern progress would soon wipe out all knowledge of the craft. Not only did Hunter return from his trips with new information, but he also came home with hundreds of papermaking tools given to him as gifts. While observing methods in Tonga, he wanted to obtain a mallet used by a village elder for beating bark into pulp. The mallet had been used for generations, and was worn down by decades of use. No amount of money or charm would cause the elder to hand it over. This was not out of sentiment; the tool was so worn out the Tongans were embarrassed by it. They showered Hunter with dozens of newer ones instead.

Hunter wrote 23 books on papermaking. “Old Papermaking” was his first effort, published in 1923. This was followed by “The Literature of Papermaking, 1390 -1800,” “Primitive Papermaking,” and “Papermaking by Hand in America.” And yes, they were all printed on handmade paper. Before all these, Hunter released the book “The Etching of Figures” in 1915. Not MIKE’S only did he hand-mill the BOOKNOTES book’s paper, but he also designed and carved the typeMike face, printed each page and Selby also bound it by hand. “The Etching of Figures” was the world’s first one-man book. Hunter died in 1966 at age 82. By then he had become the world’s most foremost expert on papermaking, and saw his home turn into a museum. It was also during this time that Hunter solved a very old mystery. The mystery began in 764, when Japanese Empress Shotoku ordered the printing of one million prayers. Devastated by civil war and small pox, Empress Shotoku hoped the printing of the prayers would halt the evil spirits that were destroying Japan’s population. Each prayer was printed on a small paper scroll, and stored inside a wooden pagoda. It is easy to overlook the previous sentence, but ‘printed’ is the key word there. The One Million Prayers are the very first time in history text was printed on paper. Astounding as this was, no one really ever thought about how this was done until a full thousand years later in 1797, when a Japanese scholar suggested the prayers were printed from a copperplate block. This set off a scholarly debate, dividing experts between printing from woodblocks, metal blocks (possibly iron) or some sort of moveable type made out of

Dard Hunter porcelain. Knowing of this still unsettled debate, Dard Hunter did what he did best: he tried to reproduce the methods for making the prayers. The paper was the easy part (unbleached hemp fibre), but no matter which method he used, Hunter could not reproduce the printed prayers to his satisfaction. He let the matter rest until 1928, when he was hunting down papermaking methods in Korean wilderness. Here he discovered a cache of centuries-old woodblocks, and one made out of stone. The prayers had been printed using a stone block imported from Korea. (Whichever block was used, this type of printing text was incredibly expensive, and thus never took off until Gutenberg reinvented it 700 years later.) Today, Hunter’s legacy is preserved by his grandson, Dard Hunter III, who prints stationary and greeting cards out of his grandfather’s old house.

NEW YORK - The NFL and the referees’ union have reached a tentative contract agreement, ending an impasse that began in June when the league locked out the officials and used replacements instead. The NFL said it planned to have regular refs work Thursday night’s Cleveland-Baltimore game. With Commissioner Roger Goodell at the table, the sides concluded two days of talks at midnight Thursday with the announcement of a tentative eight-year deal, which must be ratified by the union’s 121 members. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted


BOTTLE DRIVE Monday, Oct 1st 5:00 - 8:00 pm Please support local minor hockey by donating your spare change, recyclable cans & bottles. NOT HOME? Leave your recyclables at the curb with KMH noted.

“Pleased to report that an agreement has been reached with the NFL Referees Association. Details to follow.” The replacements worked the first three weeks of games, triggering a wave of frustration that threatened to disrupt the rest of the season. After a missed call cost the Green Bay Packers a win on a chaotic final play at Seattle on Monday night, the two sides really got serious. It was not certain who would work this week’s games, but ESPN reported regular refs will work Thursday night with Baltimore hosting Cleveland. The union was seeking improved salaries, retirement benefits and other logistical issues for the parttime officials. The NFL has proposed a pension freeze and a higher 401(k) match, and it wants to hire 21 more officials to improve the quality of officiating. The union has fought that, fearing it could lead to a loss of jobs for some of the current officials, as well as a reduction in overall compensation. The NFL claimed its offers have included annual pay increases that could earn an experienced official more than US$200,000

annually by 2018. The NFLRA has disputed the value of the proposal, insisting it means an overall reduction in compensation. Replacement refs aren’t new to the NFL. They worked the first week of games in 2001 before a deal was reached. But those officials came from the highest level of college football; the current replacements do not. Their ability to call fast-moving NFL games drew mounting criticism through Week 3, climaxing last weekend, when ESPN analyst Jon Gruden called their work “tragic and comical.” Those comments came during “Monday Night Football,” with Seattle beating Green Bay 14-12 on a desperation pass into the end zone on the final play. Packers safety M.D. Jennings had both hands on the ball in the end zone, and when he fell to the ground in a scrum, both Jennings and Seahawks receiver Golden Tate had their arms on the ball. The closest official to the play, at the back of the end zone, signalled for the clock to stop, while another official at the sideline ran in and then signalled touchdown.

Members of the men’s College of the Rockies Avalanche volleyball team sharpen up in practice for the upcoming Rumble in the Rockies tournament.

College hosting volleyball tourney TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The College of the Rockies gymnasium will be chock-full of volleyball action over the weekend, as teams from Alberta and the B.C. Interior converge on Cranbrook for the annual Rumble in the Rockies tournament. This will be the second weekend in a row of exhibition action for the women’s team, which recently returned from a tournament in Red Deer, while the men’s team will see some games on the court for the first time this preseason. The event will include two CIS teams on the mens side, with the University of Calgary Dinos featuring two former Avalanche players in Jeremias

Guenter and Brendan Visser, who will line up against their old squad. “They’re excited to play, it’s been going pretty slow and just making sure we have a foundation of basic skills and all that and making sure everyone is doing things correctly,” said men’s head coach Steve Kamps. “We’ve slowly built up towards getting six guys on the floor and now we have a chance for some exhibition.” Similarly on the women’s side, head coach Agata Bendkowska is looking forward to seeing her girls get some more gametime experience as her team includes quite a few new faces on the roster this year. She had the team practicing as early as the middle of August to

prepare for the new Pacwest season before their first exhibition play in Red Deer last weekend. “Now I know what we need to work on,” Bendkowska said. “We have 14 girls this year and it’s a different team from last year. We have some height this year, we have three dif-

ferent setters, we have girls who can play a bunch of different positions.” Both teams have finalized their rosters; the men’s team features a player from Cranbrook and Creston, while the girls team features three Mount Baker Secondary School graduates.

Women’s hockey league looking for players TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The fifth season of the Cranbrook women’s recreational hockey league is set to get underway in October, and organizers are putting out the call for any women over 18 to sign up, regardless of skill level. Games are during weekend evenings in Cranbrook and the emphasis is on developing a love for the game while

creating new friendships, as players come in from areas like Jaffray, Kimberley and Skookumchuck. When the league started, there was a vision to provide the opportunity for women to get together and have a fun evening of hockey. A lot of players are hockey moms of hockey-playing kids who’ve spent years watching the game, but have never had a chance to

try out the sport. Other players include women who went through minor hockey when they were teenagers, but are now in college, or returning from a post-secondary education from out of the region. There are motherdaughter lines out on the ice, while teams also feature a couple grandmothers. The skill level varies, but emphasis on sports-

manship means that beginners enjoy their first on-ice sessions. Referees are supplied by the league, but games are run in a low-key manner and any penalties called are dealt through penalty shots so that play resumes quickly. Anyone interested in getting involved with the women’s-only hockey league can contact Jean Terpsma at or at 250-427-3182.

American Hockey League training camps flooded with top young talent Bill Beacon Canadian Press

MONTREAL - Gifted young players like Jeff Skinner and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will report to training camp this week, but it will be in the American Hockey League and not the locked-out NHL. Most of the 30 teams in North America’s top minor league will start with physical testing either Thursday or Friday before beginning on-ice workouts to get ready for what could be a wild season in the AHL. The regular season opens Oct. 12. The last NHL lockout in 2004-05 saw some youngsters like Jason Spezza, Michael Cammalleri and Eric Staal sent back to the AHL for the season, but that was a trickle compared to the flood of talent this time around. Jordan Eberle, Adam Henrique, Adam Larsson, Sean Couturier, Brayden Schenn, Jake Gardiner, Alex Burmistrov and Slava Voynov are among players already established, at least to some degree, in the NHL who have been assigned to AHL clubs. Top prospects who likely would have started the season in the NHL but will instead play in the second-tier league include Ryan Johansen,

Sven Baertschi, Cody Hodgson, Oliver EkmanLarsson, Zack Kassian, Nino Niederreiter, Nazem Kadri, Brett Connolly, Louis Leblanc and Ryan Ellis. Depending on how long the NHL lockout lasts, it could be a spectacular season for the 77-year-old AHL, which had a big boost in attendance during the last NHL lockout. ”I look at the names on some of the rosters and this has to be the best crop of players the league has ever seen,” said Julien BriseBois, general manager of Syracuse Crunch, the Tampa Bay Lightning’s top farm club. ”We’re excited to see how much the level goes up and which teams take best advantage of the players that have fallen into their laps.” The big winner should be the Edmonton Oilers’ affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons, where coach Todd Nelson will have Nugent-Hopkins, Eberle and top U.S. college free agent Justin Schultz join a club already well-stocked with skilled skaters, including speedy Magnus Paajarvi. Nelson said adding three top talents to his 16 returning players should make for a very competitive team. It could have been four if 2010 first

overall draft pick Taylor Hall was not exempted due to injury. ”We felt we had a strong team going in,” Nelson said. ”With the addition of these three high-level players, it’s exciting.” The puzzle for all AHL coaches and managers is that they have no idea how long they will have their best players. The lock-out could end at any time and the Skinners

Yakupov suspended from KHL, pending investigation into his transfer C anadian Press

A wrench has been thrown into Nail Yakupov’s plans for the NHL lockout. The 18-year-old forward was suspended from the Russian-based KHL on Tuesday after a dispute over his transfer to Nizhnekamsk Neftekhimik. According to the International Ice Hockey Federation, Yakupov played illegally when he appeared in two games for his hometown team earlier this month because he failed to secure a transfer card. “Playing without an approved (transfer card) following an international transfer request is a breach of IIHF transfer

Blue Jays give up 7 home runs, Orioles romp 12-2 Associated Press

BALTIMORE - The Toronto Blue Jays twice bruised Baltimore. In their final game of the series, the Orioles broke loose. Chris Davis and Manny Machado each connected twice and the Orioles tied a team record with seven home runs, routing Toronto 12-2 Wednesday night and staying within 1 1/2 games of the AL East lead. The Orioles split the four-game set and remained close to the division-leading New York Yankees, who won 8-2 in Minnesota. Now, Baltimore will be rooting for Toronto. The Blue Jays open a four-game series at

home with the Yankees on Thursday. “The four games that start (Thursday) and through the weekend are going to have an effect on the outcome of this division and certainly on the playoff picture,” Toronto manager John Farrell said. “We’re hopeful to put forth the effort we put forth in this series. We swung the bats much better in this four-game series than we did on the previous two series on this trip. And we’re going to need that kind of production offensively.” The Blue Jays split a Monday doubleheader with the Orioles and won on Tuesday night.

and Eberles will then go back to the NHL. ”It’s the AHL, so it’s like that anyway,” Nelson said. ”Guys get called up during the season and it’s not that much different. ”Once the lockout ends, those three and probably two or three others will go up. The last couple of years, Edmonton had a lot of injuries and our team changed quite a bit.”

regulations,” spokesman Szymon Szemberg said in a statement. The Russian federation was fined 5,000 Swiss francs (C$5,200) for the infraction and would face much stiffer sanctions if it allowed Yakupov to continue playing in the KHL. It has until Oct. 1 to form a response on the matter. Yakupov’s transfer card went unsigned by Hockey Canada because that organization believes the player’s rights belong to the Ontario Hockey League’s Sarnia Sting, where he spent the last two seasons. The Edmonton Oilers, who drafted Yakupov first overall earlier this year, assigned him to the junior club on Sept. 15.

NFL coaches slapped with big fines Associated Press

NEW YORK - The NFL fined Patriots coach Bill Belichick $50,000 and Redskins assistant Kyle Shanahan $25,000 for their conduct toward replacement officials. The fines announced Wednesday come as the league and its referees’ union are meeting amid

reports they are close to ending the lockout of the regular officials. Belichick grabbed an official’s arm at the end of Sunday night’s game after the Ravens kicked a winning field goal. Shanahan was cited by the league for “abuse of officials” in Washington’s loss to Cincinnati. “Whatever the

league decides to do, I’ll respect and just try and do my job,” Belichick said before his fine was announced. On Monday, the league fined Broncos coach John Fox $30,000 and defensive co-ordinator Jack Del Rio $25,000 for berating officials during a loss to Atlanta on Sept. 17.

Justin Trudeau could seek Liberal leadership C anadian Press

OTTAWA — Justin Trudeau’s star power was on display Wednesday as reports of his imminent entry into the Liberal leadership race sparked a media frenzy on Parliament Hill. A phalanx of television cameras and outstretched microphones besieged Liberals outside their usually quiet weekly caucus meeting, a testament to the 40-year-old Montreal MP’s celebrity status and magnetic ability to attract attention. “Thank you very much for your interest,’’ a smiling Trudeau said on his way out of the meeting, coyly refusing to confirm or deny reports that he’ll announce his bid Tuesday in his Papineau riding. “I’m pleased to hear all the buzz and all the interest in the Liberal party’s fortunes. But I have nothing further today ... I promise I will let you know when I have something to announce.’’ Trudeau’s crowdpleasing celebrity is his most appealing quality for many Liberals, who are desperate to avoid sinking into oblivion after being reduced to a third-party rump in the 2011 election. It’s already made him the prohibitive front-runner in a leadership race that hasn’t yet officially begun and won’t culminate until April 14. However, others are waiting to see if there’s more to Trudeau than a pretty face with boyish charm, an engaging manner and a famous last name. They want to see if he can demonstrate the depth, vision and strategic smarts to bring the once-mighty Liberal party back from the brink of extinction and, eventually one day, back into power. Those close to Trudeau are well aware that he must disprove critics who maintain he’s an intellectual lightweight coasting on the coattails of his late father, Liberal icon and former prime minister Pierre Trudeau. His organizers argue Trudeau’s intellect is under-estimated, not-

MP Justin Trudeau

ing that he has obtained two university degrees: a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education. And they maintain he’s already demonstrated strategic smarts by insisting on climbing the political ladder the hard way, from the bottom up. He turned down

an opportunity to run in a safe Liberal riding in 2007, choosing instead to run in a contested nomination in Papineau, a riding held at the time by the Bloc Quebecois. As for critics who question whether Trudeau has the gravi-

tas or depth to be prime minister, his strategists maintain that’s not the job description. What Liberals are choosing, they say, is a leader of a third party and the most important qualification is the ability to engage Canadians and attract new blood.

City of Kimberley



The Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) is an organization that has represented the interests of local governments in BC since 1905. The UBCM was formed to provide a common voice for local government and the annual convention continues to be the main forum for UBCM policy-making. It provides an opportunity for local governments of all sizes and from all areas of the province to come together, share their experiences and take a united position.


The Annual UBCM convention takes place this week, Sept. 24 – 28 in Victoria. Local governments from across the East Kootenay will have the opportunity to present their community’s highest priorities. As Minister responsible for Communities, I will have 64 meetings with local governments and deliver 10 speeches.


It will be a good, honest discussion with local government. Municipalities will quite understandably argue they need more money for roads, sewers, water and transit and I will be raising the issue of local government generally trying to keep their expenses down the way the province does.

Notice is hereby given that the Municipal Council of the City of Kimberley, pursuant to Section 226 of the Community Charter, may, by bylaw, adopt a revitalization tax exemption program. Council wishes to establish a revitalization tax exemption program by adopting the “Kimberley Investment Incentive Program Bylaw No. 2454, 2012” to encourage commercial and industrial investment to achieve a range of economic, social and environmental objectives. The program allows for the granting of tax exemption, in accordance with the requirements of the Bylaw, to encourage investment in the designated investment incentive areas in support of the following objectives: • To enhance visual appeal and vitality; support business growth and to expand employment opportunities; and • To improve environmental condition of brownfield sites and to increase the supply of developmentready lands available to support growth in the local economy. The program is intended to achieve the objectives by providing relief from 100% of the incremental increase in municipal property taxes resulting from the increased property values after a commercial or industrial project is completed or by providing relief from 50% of the municipal property taxes while a project involving environmental investigation or remediation activity is in progress. The total tax exemption must not exceed the total cost of the project. The following types of projects may be eligible under the program: • New construction, or alterations to an existing building, resulting in a net increase of floor area, with a construction value of at least $50,000; • Exterior improvements to an existing building involving all facades visible from a public street, road, lane, sidewalk or parking lot and subject to a development permit; or • A project involving work to investigate or remediate the environmental condition of a parcel with a project value of at least $10,000. The maximum term of annual tax exemption for a qualifying project is: • A three year term for a project in a designated investment incentive area assessed as Class 6 – Business and Other land and improvements; • A five year term for a project in a designated investment incentive area assessed as Class 4 – Major Industry or Class 5 – Light Industry land and improvements; or • A three year term for a project, in a designated investment incentive area, involving environmental investigation or remediation activity. An owner of a parcel that wishes to qualify for a tax exemption must submit an application in accordance with the requirements set out in the bylaw. The revitalization tax exemption program will apply to properties in the designated investment incentive areas shown in Schedules “A” and “B” attached to the bylaw. A copy of the proposed “Kimberley Investment Incentive Program Bylaw No. 2454, 2012” and supporting documentation may be inspected at City Hall, 340 Spokane Street, Kimberley, BC, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, up until Wednesday, October 3, 2012.

Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make nonlawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your intuition directs you as to which way to go, though you could feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. You see the potential for change, but you need a boss or supervisor to go along with you. You might opt not to share everything you are thinking. Tonight: Not to be found. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) A friend seems to zero in on an issue, which helps you to verbalize and express your thoughts. A partner cares, but he or she initially might show it as hostility. Get past this person’s behavior. Detach, and you will see more. Tonight: Where your friends are. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You are on top of your game, and you understand what makes an associate function in the way that he or she does. Open up to a talk, and share more of what you think is needed. Be aware of what others suggest as well. Tonight: A must appearance. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Detach before making a final decision. You intuitively want to know more of what could make a situation work. By stepping back, you will gain greater insight for how to proceed. Evaluate what is needed at the moment. Tonight: Your feelings need to lead the way. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Recheck any agreements that could impact your finances. You have very high ideals, and you want to satisfy them. Sometimes double-checking is important in ensuring that everything is proceeding as you’d like. Be willing to flow with a change in plans or a call that takes too long. Tonight: Deal with a family member directly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Defer to someone who really wants to call the shots and make the decisions. You might not agree with this person, but you need to witness the end results of his or her actions. A child or loved one interjects a delightful element into your day. Tonight: Make calls and figure out weekend plans. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You deal with others directly and

For Better or Worse

with self-confidence. You know what your expectations are, and, for the most part, you share them with those involved. You could get into a heated conversation at first, but let it go -- don’t let it mar your interaction. Tonight: Off to the gym. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your sense of direction calls for some quick decisions. Your ability to see beyond an issue and understand the consequences of certain actions allows you to make the right move. Deal with a passionate individual directly; remember that this person cares. Tonight: Choose something fun. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Think through a problem with key players. What you see happening is OK, even if on some level you don’t buy someone else’s version of the story. Nevertheless, you plan on making an important change because you see the wisdom of making it. Tonight: Happy to be home. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Keep conversations moving. You have an intuitive sense of what you want to hear. Do not let frustration

build, and realize that you have no control over others. Stay upbeat. A conversation opens up a situation. Tonight: Visit with a friend over a drink and munchies. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might not understand the financial implications of what you are seeing. Someone might be more deceptive than you think. If you are unsure, say little and avoid making any commitments. A boss or higher-up tests your patience. Tonight: Think “budget.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might want to understand what is going on with someone at a distance. You could be unusually aggravated with a loved one, but let these feelings pass. A friend encourages you to go along with his or her idea. Say “yes.” Tonight: Beam in what you want.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I am 38 and have been with my husband for 18 years. We have built a wonderful life with great kids, but circumstances led to a separation. I was the one who wanted it. My husband is a good guy, but he just hasn’t been able to give me the love I want. Something is always more important. He now says he’s willing to do anything to make this marriage work. But he’s promised that before, and after a short time, I am on the back burner again. A few months ago, I ran into a man I hadn’t seen in years. He is divorced. One thing led to another, and, well, you can figure it out. Now, I have two really great guys in my life, and I want them both. My husband is a stable, sensible, great father. My guy friend is fun, sweet and the best lover I have ever had. I know I am being selfish, and I feel guilty, but apparently not guilty enough to make a choice between them. How do I decide? -Used To Be Sensible in Milwaukee Dear Milwaukee: There are children involved in this mess, and you should think of them. Ideally, you and your husband would work on this together and make your marriage stronger. It requires that you both get back into counseling, that he sticks to the plan and that you give up your boyfriend. If you are not ready to do that, please get a legal separation from your husband and put a custody and visitation plan into effect while you sort this out. Don’t wait too long. Your husband may decide he is entitled to look elsewhere for happiness, too. Dear Annie: I was recently invited to a small, informal engagement party. The invitation said, “No gifts, please,” so I followed that. But when I arrived, there was a table with quite a few cards, a bottle of wine and other small boxes. My uncle is getting married soon for the second time. He is having the ceremony and a dinner at a local restaurant. His invitation also says, “No gifts, please, only best wishes.” My sister says we must get him a gift, or we are being cheap, no matter what the invitation says. But I would think people would be miffed if they received presents they specifically said they didn’t want. I don’t want to make the same mistake again. Is a card not enough? -- Not Sure Dear Not Sure: When someone requests “no gifts,” that is exactly what it means. People who bring presents anyway are insecure about the request and feel they must buy something regardless. Of course, etiquette also says “no gifts” does not belong on an invitation because it implies that gifts are otherwise expected. If you insist on giving a present, we suggest a donation to their favorite charity in honor of their nuptials. Dear Annie: The letter from “The Drunk’s Wife” brought back some memories. My husband hangs out at a local bar with his buddies. One evening, when it was well past the time he usually comes home, I went to the garage to see whether he had driven the golf cart home yet. I found him lying between the wall and the cart. He had been trying to recharge the cart, but was so drunk he fell and passed out. Once I got him into bed, I called the bar and told them if it happened again, I would call the police, and they could lose their liquor license. I said I was not only protecting my husband and those he encountered on the road, but also the bar business. The next day when he was sober, I told him what I did. He was angry, but he needed to know how many people would be affected by his drunk driving. Fortunately, the bartender now watches and limits his drinks, and my husband is more careful because he knows I’ll report him to the police. It’s because I love him. -- A Caring Wife Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Canadian delegation walks out as Iran’s Ahmadinejad takes to podium at UN Lee-Anne Goodman Canadian Press

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Canadian diplomats walked out Wednesday as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad subjected the United Nations to more of his trademark political vitriol, but the Iranian president brushed off Canada’s anti-Iran bent even as Tehran warned its citizens to avoid the country for fear of rampant “Iranophobia.’’ It wasn’t the first time the Canadian delegation has walked out on Ahmadinejad — they did it last year and in 2009 at the United Nations annual gathering of world leaders. But tensions are running higher than ever between the two countries after Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird shuttered Canada’s embassy in Iran three weeks ago. “We will not sit silently in our chairs and listen to Iran’s hateful, anti-Western, anti-Semitic views,’’ Baird’s press secretary, Rick Roth, said in a statement. “If anything, today’s address only reinforces our decision earlier this month to suspend diplomatic relations with Iran.’’ Ahmadinejad was dismissive of Canada in a news conference following his speech to the UN. “Any country is free to have or to not have relations with other countries,’’ he said. “I fundamentally don’t see this as a very important issue. Of course we did not have a substantial economic relationship with Canada.’’ Ahmadinejad didn’t mention Canada by name during his speech to the United Nations General Assembly, but a statement posted Wednesday by the Islamic Republic News Agency, Iran’s official news

agency, was making headlines all the same. The statement, attributed to Iran’s Foreign Ministry, warned Iranian citizens against travelling to Canada, citing “Islamophobia,’’ “Iranophobia’’ and a “double standard’’ in Canada towards human rights. On Sept. 7, Baird abruptly announced that Canada had shut down its embassy in Tehran and ordered personnel at the Iranian embassy in Ottawa to get out of the country within five days. “There have been cases of arrest and expulsion of Iranian expatriates under various pretexts and Iranians are deprived of their basic rights to continue with their ordinary activities, including the right to access their banking accounts and do ordinary transactions,’’ the Foreign Ministry statement said. Baird was unequivocal in his scorn for the statement. “I think it’s absolutely ridiculous, and I think 99 per cent of Canadians would share that view.’’ In the past, Ahmadinejad has used the UN spotlight to attack Israel, cast doubt on the Holocaust and question American accounts of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. There were suggestions of the same in Wednesday’s speech, but in his final address to the UN, Ahmadinejad also took on a loftier tone as he described a new world order. In what sounded like a sermon at times, Ahmadinejad envisioned a world that lacks the “hegemony of arrogance,’’ citing what he called the “continued threat by the uncivilized Zionists to resort to military

He made no reference to Iran’s nuclear program. The United States, Israel, Canada and others fear that program is little more than a pretence for building a nuclear weapon for use against the Israelis. Iran, however, insists its a peaceful program. The country has been subjected to tough sanctions for its refusal to co-operate with the UN’s nuclear watchdog agency; the UN has asked for proof that its intentions are peaceful as Iranians enrich uranium to levels that would allow them to build a nuclear

bomb. Israel has been pounding the drum beat of war against Iran for months. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been criticized for attempting to pressure the U.S. into joining Israel in launching a military strike. U.S. President Barack Obama, who addressed the UN himself earlier this week in a forceful rebuke of the recent anti-American violence in the Middle East, says the dispute can still be resolved through diplomacy. But he’s also pledged to prevent Iran from building a bomb. Ahmadinejad assailed both the United States and Israel in his speech, accusing Americans of protecting a nuclear-armed “fake regime.’’ That shot at Israel prompted the country’s UN ambassador to walk out.

Chunk of the moon to be auctioned off Associated Press

NEW YORK – A New York City auction will offer 125 meteorites for sale, including a large chunk of the moon and a 179-pound (81-kilogram) iron cosmic rock that evokes Edvard Munch’s iconic painting “The Scream.’’ The sale, one of the largest of its kind, is being held by the Dallasbased Heritage Auctions on Oct. 14. The sale also includes a large piece of the Peekskill meteorite, famous for puncturing a Chevy Malibu in 1992 about 50 miles north of Manhattan, and the largest complete slice of the most famous meteorite in the world, the Willamette, a huge specimen that is housed at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. The moon rock has the highest pre-sale estimate of $340,000 to $380,000; less than 0.1 per cent of all meteorites recovered are lunar in origin. The 46-centimetre-tall meteorite, dubbed “The Scream,’’ is estimated at $175,000 to $225,000. Three of the concave hallows are

evocative of Munch’s image of a man holding his head and screaming under a streaked sky. It is classified a Gibeon and was discovered in the Kalahari Desert in southern Africa. Specimens from the collection are found at the natural history museums in London, New York and Paris and The Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., among others. The cover lot in the sale is of an iron meteorite with naturally formed holes that resemble a mask. The catalogue says it is “arguably the most exotically esthetic’’ and was discovered by indigenous tribesmen in Namibia with a metal detector. It is estimated to bring $140,000 to $180,000. The Peekskill piece has a presale estimate of $47,500 to $55,000. There are others that have lower estimates but come with interesting stories, like a small portion of a meteorite estimated at about $4,000 that fell from the sky in 1492. It was later chained up in a church so it couldn’t fly back into orbit.

The Iranian leader spoke despite the concerted efforts of some, including Liberal MP Irwin Cotler, to convince UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to pull the plug on his participation. “Allowing President Ahmadinejad to address the UN General Assembly is a cruel parody of law and justice that will put us on the wrong side of history,’’ Cotler wrote in a recent letter to the secretary general and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The letter cited Ahmadinejad for human rights violations, pursuit of nuclear weapons in defiance of the UN and incitement to genocide. Cotler said the UN should be indicting Ahmadinejad, not inviting him to the podium. Canada isn’t alone in its outrage about Ahmadinejad. Thousands of protesters streamed into a plaza near the United Nations complex in mid-town Manhattan on Wednesday as the Iranian leader addressed the annual gathering. Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Newt Gingrich, the one-time Republican presidential hopeful, made appearances at the protest. Syrians were also on hand to denounce Iran’s support of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s bloody crackdown against his opponents. Prime Minister Stephen Harper has decided once again not to speak to the opening of the assembly’s fall session. The UN has met seven times since Harper was elected prime minister; he’s addressed the General Assembly only twice. In his place, Baird will speak at the UN on Monday.

Farmers warn of bacon shortage Canadian Press

AP Photo/Heritage Auctions

This undated photo provided by Heritage Auctions shows a large chunk of the moon, which will be offered at a sale in New York of more than 125 meteorites on Oct. 14, 2012.

LONDON — A British farming organization is predicting a worldwide shortage of bacon and pork next year. The National Pig Association says global drought conditions are driving up the price of grain, a major staple in hog feed. It says pig farmers around the world are selling their herds because retail prices are not rising fast enough to cover the cost of record-high pig-feed costs. In the United States, the government has introduced a pork-buying program in a bid to keep its pig farmers in business. And the Chinese government is putting pork into cold storage, as a buffer against shortages and high prices next year. Iowa-based agricultural economist Steve Meyer says he expects to see record prices for pork next year. He says high grain prices affect all meat suppliers, meaning beef, chicken and turkey supplies could also be affected.
