ROOTS AND SHOOTS: Dr. Jane Goodall discussed her Roots and Shoots program with local educators at the St. Eugene Mission Resort on September 30 during her three day whirlwind tour of the Canadian Rockies. Goodall told an enthusiastic crowd that she was stunned by the alpenglow on the mountains as she arrived. The St. Eugene stop was one of several appearances for Goodall. She also spoke at the Key City Theatre later in the evening. See further coverage on Goodall’s visit later this week in the Townsman.

Peace celebration a magical evening Co urt e s y E I L EE N B r a at e n

Sept. 21, 2012 at 7 pm at Idlewild Peace Park a most memorial and magical evening began. The setting with the surrounding mountains in the distance couldn’t be more perfect or awe inspiring. The second annual International Day of Peace celebration was under way with the lovely and talented Joelle Winkel leading all in O Canada. The more than 250 hearts were swelling with pride and thankfulness for our country. The wonder and awe of all the young and so talented individuals kept everyone spell bound. From the wonderful Metis Jiggers, to Savannah Flegel singing so beautifully, to the Royal Stewart Highland Dancers, and later Piper, Mariah Whitlock, to the beautiful Filipino Flower Dance, to Brianna Salmon with her aweinspiring dance to Instrument of Peace, to Joelle Winkel and friends singing, to our fantastic Cranbrook Bugle Band, and Angus MacDonald, William Nicholson and Rod Wilson providing some toe tapping Celtic music. Just in case this wasn’t more than you might have expected, there was a finale can-

“Give Peace A Chance!” dle light closing where everyone joined in with ‘Give Peace A Chance’, candles gently waving in the dusk — truly awesome! The Committee for Peace wishes to extend a very sincere and humble thank you to all of the participants, to the Color Guard, to the Youth Embassador Group, Sandor Rentals for the chairs, and to all of you for supporting this wonderful and special event, International Day of Peace. Mark your calendars now for Sept. 21, 2013, the third annual celebration. This is definately an event you do not want to miss. See you there!

From Vancouver to Halifax, with love Cranbrook woman takes part in cross-country bike ride, raising money for kids with cancer Bar ry Co ulter

A Cranbrook woman is back from a fundraising adventure that took her and a team of cyclists across the country. Barb Wilhite took part in the fifth annual Sears National Kids Cancer Ride, which aimed to raise $1 million for kids afflicted with cancer. Wilhite went along the 17-day trek as part of the support team, driving an RV that accompanied the 25 cyclists from coast to coast. “We started out from Vancouver, dipping our wheels in the Pacific, and made our way across the country to Halifax, where we dipped our wheels in the Atlantic,” Wilhite said. The Sears National Kids Cancer Ride is one of the biggest charity cycling events on behalf of childhood cancer in the world. Wilhite said 100 per cent of all funds raised through donations goes to facilities dedicated to children living with cancer. So

far, of that million-dollar goal, $756,000 has been raised, with more pledges expected. The team left Vancouver on September 5, and finished in Halifax September 21, after more than 6,000 kilometres. The journey roughly followed the TransCanada Highway, although Wilhite said the group was routed along less busy secondary roads for safety’s sake. The group’s day got going at 5:30 a.m. each day with breakfast, followed by a group meeting. “Each day we heard a story about a specific child who was either living with cancer, had succumbed to cancer, or had won the fight with cancer” Wilhite said. “And that day’s ride would be dedicated to that child. “It made each day very emotional, and personal.” The ride stopped in 150 communities along the way, and Wilhite said they got great reception and support wherever they went.

Riders on the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride get set to dip their wheels in the Atlantic Ocean after completing a 17-day, 6,000km fundraising trek. They participated in community events and visited pediatric oncology centres and hospitals. This was Wilhite’s first time on the ride. Her brother has been doing it for five years, and his son, Wilhite’s nephew, also got involved in the inaugural ride in 2008. “I had previous vacation time planned” she said. “I got home on Sunday evening, and left Monday morning

Dadson to give update on state of the local tourism industry C AROLYN GRANT Daily Bulletin

Kootenay Rockies Tourism will hold its annual general meeting and conference at the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre on October 18, 2012. Tourism partners from all over the region, including owners and employees of tourism facilities and businesses, as well as representation from the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Development will attend panel discussions and presentations in the day long session. KRT President Chris Dadson, who will be retiring in November, will deliver a report on the regional tourism per-

spective. “My report usually includes information about our marketing projects, but will also include general trends.” And the trend this year is not bad, he says. “It’s kind of a mixed bag but it’s stabilizing again,” he said. “We’ve had a couple of tough years, and we don’t have the final numbers for this year yet. But anecdotally I think it was a good summer. We had a late start with the wet spring, which was tough but I’m hearing reports from golf courses and businesses that August and September have been good. “The U.S. market is tough with the exchange rates. But overall, post-

recession of 2008 it seems to be settling out.” Also presenting at the conference will be Rod Harris, Adjunct Professor, Royal Roads University, who will report on tourism from a global perspective. There will also be a session on engaging customers through social media. The conference ends with a Saturday night dinner and a retirement party for Dadson.

for Vancouver. “When I got to Vancouver, I only knew my brother, but everybody took me under their

Jersey Day celebrated from Cranbrook to Victoria Annalee Grant Townsman Staff

From École T.M. Roberts School to the Victoria legislature, Jersey Day was celebrated across the province on September 28. Students at Cranbrook’s French Immersion school wore their favourite team jerseys to classes on Friday to take part in the provincewide celebration of community sports and team support. TM Roberts’ kindergarten classes were a flurry of team colours, from the Vancouver Canucks to the Kootenay Ice, and all the way to the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens. In Victoria, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Bill Bennett took a walk on the harbour in his Kootenay Ice jersey with delegates from the Union of B.C. Municipalities at the tail end of their conference. “Whether it be a community or professional team, I’m encouraging everyone to wear a jersey today,” Bennett said. “Our government is committed to vibrant and healthy communities. Jersey Day enables everyone to show off their civic pride through their favourite team, proving that sport has the power to unify us all.”

Jersey Day precedes Sports Day in Canada and helps to ramp up community spirit leading into Sports Day, which was celebrated on Thursday by the Cranbrook Skating Club at the Memorial Arena. The club invited anyone to come out and learn to skate for free while promoting the club’s activities. The third annual Sports Day was celebrated nationally on September 29, finishing off a week that included thousands of events across Canada. B.C. Had its highest level of participation so far, with 200 events happening across the province, including the skating event in Cranbrook. Sports Day is presented by ParticipACTION, True Sport, CBC Sports and Healthy Families BC. At TM Roberts the initiative was organized by by kindergarten teacher Karen Robinson. Students at the school spent the week celebrating Sports Day by participating in a number of different activities. The Kootenay Ice stopped by to play a little hockey, Evolution Martial Arts and Stages School of Dance did demonstrations and they played a few games of volleyball.

Mother says thanks for fundraising efforts C arolyn Gr ant

Paula Thomas, mother of Jenna Homeniuk, who is currently in Children’s Hospital in Calgary battling leukemia, has a big thank you for the fund-raising efforts of local residents. “We would like to give a very warm thank you to our amazing community and friends who took part in Jenna’s fund-raiser,” Thomas said. “This event was a huge success and we are very grateful to you all. Shari Lamarche and her team of helpers amazed us. Their dedication and hard work made this event a huge success. We would also like to thank all the businesses, the Lions Club, the Rotary Club and individuals who gave their time and gifts for the silent auction. Thank you all

for your kindness and generosity.” Thomas says that Jenna is doing as well as could be expected. “We have six to seven months of chemo treatments ahead,” Thomas said. “But she’s strong, her spirits are up. We are believers and we are confident she’ll make it through. It’s a rough road, but she’s doing okay.”

Self-sorting socks - hallelujah!


European country has introduced an exciting new technological advance that is sure to literally rock your socks

off. Blacksocks are socks that literally sort themselves! The new tall socks have a microchip that links to your iPhone and delivers you a bevy of information on everything you ever wanted to know about your socks. A quick query of the Townsman editorial staff revealed a number of exciting things we’d all like to know about our socks, and now can thanks to the Blacksocks app should we be willing to spend our salaries on $189 space-socks. The top responses were pattern, colour and style. All of which can be done thanks to the helpful “app” that evolution gave us: the human eye. But in the 21st century, relying on our peepers alone isn’t good enough. We need that technology available in an iPhone app. Blacksocks come equipped with a microchip that will beep if it’s close to its match. Now, I must note the socks are all black, so one might ponder why you can’t just mis-match them without anyone be-

coming wise to your hotfootery — but this is 2012! We have technology to prevent us from committing such a “faux-paw.” I must admit I hate sorting socks, but I do love the wonderful patterns available in the sock world. I spend hours doing the back-breaking work and I have often wondered in the midst of the sorting fracas, as I wipe the accumulated sweat from my brow, why there wasn’t an easier way. But now there is! Never again will I have to cancel appointments because of a Annalee mix up at the laundromat Grant or the loss of a sock or two. Never will I wonder how many times I have washed my socks before, or whether they are experiencing wear and tear. I once wore socks until my big toe burst through, but now my iPhone app will tell me exactly when that will happen before I experience the embarrassment of a one-toe peak out of my Birkenstocks.* The founder of Blacksocks says “It gives you more information on the sock than ever before!” When your socks arrive, you will need to set them up with a mate from the package using the app for your phone and the

Sock Sorter remote. Unfortunately the technology in your new socks is way to advanced for the actual iPhone, but it will display other information on your socks. Have you ever needed to make sure your right sock stays on your right foot? Your iPhone will tell you the exact foot your sock should be on. But what if you lose your socks mate? Don’t worry you can break up your pairs with the click of a button, and your iPhone will adjust accordingly. Because remember – just because you can easily match the identical socks on your own, having a record of this activity is important. Some day, when our generations are long gone, I predict future humans will be able to access the information available through the Sock Sorter app and get a real glimpse of life in 2012. Seriously, we can make self sorting socks, but we still can’t cure cancer? Our priorities as a global community are way off. *Note: I am vehemently against the fashion “faux-paw” of socks with sandals, but needed the imagery to prove my point. I do not condone socks being worn with any type of sandals.

Opinion/Events Letters to the Editor

Religion, science In his Sept. 21 column, Rev. Yme Woensdregt says the book of Genesis is not a science text. Yet the Bible contains references that anticipate scientific discovery by hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of years. A spherical earth is implied in Isaiah 40:22 (“circle of the earth”) suspended in space (Job 26:7). The expression “stretched out” is used several times to explain the process by which God created the universe, consistent with cosmologists’ present understanding of an expanding universe. Job 38:16 mentions “springs of the sea”, unknown until their discovery in 1977 (hydrothermal vents). Matthew Maury discovered the oceans have many paths or currents, like rivers flowing through the sea. He wrote the first book on oceanography and became known as “the pathfinder of the seas”. Maury got the idea about ocean currents from reading Psalm 8:8. Ecclesiastes 1:7 describes the earth’s hydrological (water) cycle: “All streams flow into the sea, yet the sea is never full. To the place the streams come from, there they return again.” Crick and Watson are the co-discoverers of the thread-like DNA molecule. Yet thousands of years ago the psalmist wrote: “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm 139:13). This verse antici-

pates that we are literally knitted or woven together at the molecular level. Woensdregt writes in his Feb. 10 column: “In fact, I see no contradiction between the opening chapters of Genesis and the science of evolution. I affirm strongly that Christians can believe in a creative, life-giving God, and also accept the scientific truthfulness of evolution.” Phillip Johnson (“Darwin on Trial”) says naturalists define words like “evolution” and “science” in such a way that naturalism is true by definition. He commented in World magazine: “Evolutionary science is based on naturalism and draws philosophical conclusions to that base. That’s why any theistic evolution is inherently superficial. It leads people into naturalistic thinking, and they don’t realize it.” (Nov. 22, 1997, p.13) The Sept. 24 Townsman includes the article, “New fossil site found at Burgess Shale”. How do paleontologists explain fossils of soft-bodied sea animals such as Opabinia and Hallucinogenia, in view of their argument that soft body tissues of missing intermediate forms didn’t fossilize? David Buckna Kelowna

Marysville flowers A recent letter recognizing the Cranbrook flower boxes has prompted me to add this accolade to a local couple. For several years Keith and Heather King have

taken it upon themselves to plant, water, and maintain the flower boxes along the main street through Marysville, adding to the appeal of our community core. Their dedication to this hasn’t gone unnoticed. Thanks Heather and Keith. Rob MacDonald Marysville

Enough is enough After following our provincial and federal politicians’ spendings over the years, Canadians have wondered how much is enough. Huge salaries, huge expense accounts, huge separation bonuses, and huge pensions. Then we are hit by our favourite pastime in winter, NHL hockey players on strike over millions and millions of dollars. When is enough money enough? Where are the Glenn Halls, Gordie Howes and Stan Mikitas who played tough, tough hockey for far less than your average player of today? Where are the Lougheeds, Diefenbakers, Pearsons and WAC Bennets who served the people and not themselves. It is time for the fans and taxpayers to say enough is enough. The true winners are the minor and junior hockey players and all the great people who help our less fortunate Canadians to enjoy being a human being. Michael Jones Kimberley

Sharing embassies makes practical sense Mat the w F is her Postmedia News


here has been much ado about the decision by Britain and Canada to share embassies and consulates in some of the planet’s more obscure but nevertheless important places. The discussion in Canada has largely centered on how Ottawa might somehow once again come under Britain’s dangerous imperial sway because of a few new sleeping arrangements. A couple of critics saw it as another example of how Prime Minister Stephen Harper is gobsmacked by Canada’s royal connections to Britain. The decision to pool some diplomatic logistics and other resources will have absolutely nothing to do with the foreign policies of either country. Canadian diplomats will continue to act according to instructions issued in Ottawa. British diplomats will do what London directs them to do. All Canada and Britain are actually doing is sharing space and perhaps some consular duties in capitals where one or other of the countries does not have an embassy. Rather than fearing fallout from British diplomacy, which has little of the gravitas that it used to because its standing in the world is so diminished, this announcement can just as easily be read as Canada agreeing to help bail out an old friend who can no longer manage to pay its own way in the world. After all, Canada is one of the world’s great economic success stories and is ascendant. Britain’s finances, on the other hand, are in a parlous state and the country’s outlook is gloomy at best. As a few retired diplomats have noted, sharing diplomatic posts or consular responsibilities has actually been a fact for

years. When I was arrested in Maputo, as the capital, Lourenco Marques became known during Mozambique’s communist revolution in 1975, it was a good-humoured junior British consul, Baron Charles de Chassiron, much later ViceMarshal of the Diplomatic Corps, who came to my rescue because Canada had no embassy there. Upon meeting me de Chassiron dryly noted that I seemed to be “in a spot of bother” and promised to “sort me out,” which he quickly did. As I recall, his wife provided a tasty Portuguese ice cream cake to lift my spirits. Canada has long had similar consular arrangements in place in Southeast Asia with Australia. When I wanted to speak with a Canadian pederast who had been incarcerated in what was said to be Cambodia’s worst jail awaiting a mountain of charges involving young boys, it was a woman from the Australian embassy with a flair and ingenuity that I think few Canadian diplomats would have shown, who played a confidence game to con the jailers into believing that I was a Canadian diplomat bringing in food for the accused. The construction worker from northern Alberta did not spurn the food but he snubbed me for about 10 minutes before realizing that if he wanted to speak any English that day I was the only game in town. What followed, as rats scurried about under our feet, was an interview with one of the most pathetic, delusional men I have ever had the misfortune to meet. Clearly none of the assistance rendered to me by Britain or Australia in Mozambique and Cambodia had any effect on Canada’s foreign policies regarding any of these countries. What the British and Aus-

tralian legations provided was practical assistance. The only difference that I can see between those days and today is that the words “a Canadian citizen is a British subject” or “un citoyen canadien est un sujet britannique,” which greatly aggravated some French Canadians, no longer appear in Canadian passports. These terms finally disappeared from passports in 1977, although this particular legal status had probably disappeared when the Canadian Citizenship Act was passed in 1947. Even so, the back inside cover of all Canadian passports still states that Canadians in distress should avail themselves of British diplomatic or consular services in places where Canada has no office and the United Kingdom does. In italicized letters on the front inside cover of current passports it also still declares that “the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada requests, in the name of Her Majesty the Queen, all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.” Mind you, the Her Majesty being referred to is the Queen of Canada, not Britain. During tough economic times when all governments are trying to get better value for money and after Liberal and Conservative governments have been criticized for not being quick enough off the mark to exploit new opportunities in Asia and Africa, it makes sense in a few remote locales for Canada to share office space and lodgings with countries such as Britain whose business practises and security arrangements for embassies we can trust and who in turn can trust us.

Ice split home action against Pats, ‘Canes TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

A lack of discipline factored into both Ice games, as the Regina Pats fell 4-1 at the hands of the hometown team on Friday, but a deadly power play from the Hurricanes allowed Lethbridge to double up 4-2 against Kootenay on Saturday. The Ice also cut down to the limit of three 20-year-olds by dealing forward Elgin Pearce to the Medicine Hat Tigers for a fifth round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft on Saturday (see below). Goaltender Mackenzie Skapski earned his first win as a starter against the Pats, while backup Wyatt Hoflin got his first taste of the regular season during the tilt against Lethbridge. The Ice opened the contest with the Pats by introducing the team to the crowd of 2,531 at Western Financial Place in the first home game of the new season. Sam Reinhart ended the game with two late goals and an assist, while Erik Benoit and Brock Montgomery provided the other offence as the franchise picked up it’s 600th career victory. Trent Ouellette scored the lone goal for the Pats. Skapski made 19 stops, while Teegan Sacher turned the puck away 18 times for Regina. Regina was without head coach Pat Conacher, who is currently back in his hometown of Calgary, dealing with an undisclosed personal

matter. The tone was set early in the game, when Ice defenceman Tanner Faith took a hard hit from Henry Hardarson along the boards inside the Kootenay zone. Defensive partner Mike Simpson went in for retribution as most of the players paired up into shoving matches. Ice forward Jon Martin ended up dropping the mitts with Tye Hand, which earned them each a fighting major and a game ejection for being the second guys in. “Simmer [Simpson] did a really good job of defending one of our teammates and Marty [Martin] stepped up as well,” said Benoit. “That gets all the boys fired up on the bench and it’s really good to see.” Benoit himself struck first on a solo effort late in the opening frame, stuffing the puck past Sacher at the corner of the net. Cracks began to show in the discipline of the Pats in the second period. Sacher pounced on a flubbed pass in the slot from his defenceman while killing a penalty, but that didn’t stop Ice forward Jordyn Boyd from having a whack at it. That irritated the Regina skaters on the ice and an scrum formed, which ended with another Pats jersey in the sin bin. The Ice, with a twoman advantage, capitalized when Montgomery took a pass from the side of the net, dragged it to his forehand and roofed it over Sacher’s shoulder.


Kootenay Ice forwards Brock Montgomery and Sam Reinhart celebrate a goal against the Regina Pats on Friday night at Western Financial Place. The Ice split their weekend action wth a win against the Pats and a loss against the Lethbridge Hurricanes on Saturday. Skapski made some big saves to preserve Kootenay’s lead against Pats forward Chandler Stephenson, who got two chances all alone in front of the net in the third period. “We got our first win and it’s a step of progress, our team played well today and I thought my personal game took a stride of progress, compared to my last two games,” said Skapski. Reinhart got his first goal of the regular season late in the third period by picking up the garbage in front of the net after Jakub Prochaz-

ka drove the puck to the crease. Regina answered with their lone goal a minute later when Ouellette jammed away at a puck in Skapski’s pads after a save on a shot from the blue line. Hardarson got involved in his second scrap of the night with Ice defeceman Jeff Hubic, after the Kootenay player made a big hit in the offensive zone corner. Hubic started the game on defence, but moved into the forward ranks to cover the absence of Martin after his

ejection. Reinhart got his second of the game within the final 60 seconds on the power play, taking a feed from Collin Shirley to snipe a shot into the top corner. Former Ice forward Adam Rossignol made a return to his old home barn as part of the Pats lineup, which picked him up after the Swift Current Broncos released him after training camp. The following night, it was the Ice’s turn to come unglued as undisciplined penalties sunk their opportunity for an-

other home win. Despite the loss, Holfin looked good in his debut, as there wasn’t much he could’ve done about some of the Hurricanes’ powerplay goals. He made 25 saves, while Ty Rimmer, who minded the net for Lethbridge, stopped 16 shots. The Ice grabbed the lead for the second consecutive game when Jagger Dirk snapped a sharp angle shot high over the shoulder of Rimmer, who was acquired from the Tri-City Americans in the offseason.

However, Jaimen Yakubowski responded early in the second period, scoring from the slot after taking a pass from behind Hoflin’s net. Montgomery scored his second goal of the weekend and put the Ice ahead five minutes later, settling the puck in front of Rimmer and wiring a low shot into the corner. The Ice started a march to the penalty box afterwards, as Dirk took an interference and high-sticking penalties, while Tanner Faith got whistled for interference in between.

Pearce traded to Medicine Hat Tigers for fifth-round draft pick TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice have resolved their 20-year-old situation, cutting down to three overagers over the weekend by trading forward Elgin Pearce to the Medicine Hat Tigers for a fifth-round pick in the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft. Pearce spent the

last three years with the Ice playing as a centerman and collected a total of 72 points in 186 career games. The native of Port Coquitlam also appeared in 26 career playoff games, tallying eight points. He was part of the championship-w inning team in 2011 that collected the fran-

chise’s third league title. Pearce was the victim of a numbers game, as the club had to pare down to three overagers between himself, Brock Montgomery, Joey Leach and Drew Czerwonka. While Leach, Montgomery and Pearce have been playing, Czerwonka recently

Elgin Pearce stepped back out onto the ice last Monday in his first practice of the new season after com-

ing into training camp with an undisclosed upper body injury. Kootenay Ice head coach Ryan McGill said the deal was the best fit for both Pearce and the team. “The move on Pearce was something that management and the coaching staff decided that we felt we needed strong leader-

ship...” said McGill. “Czerwonka being hurt, and almost ready to play, when a deal comes around, you can’t wait and say that we need to see somebody play—that deal might not be there next week, so you have to take it when it comes.” Pearce will join up with three other 20-year-olds on the Ti-

gers roster, and head coach and general manager Shaun Clouston will have to make some overager decisions himself by the Oct. 11 deadline. Medicine Hat’s 20 year-olds include Winger Kale Kessy up front, while Alex Theriau and Derek Ryckman patrol the blue line.

Europe mounts comeback, wins Ryder Cup NHL, locked-out players meet for third straight day Doug Ferguson Associated Press

MEDINAH, Ill. - Erasing some of their worst Ryder Cup memories, the Europeans wore the image of Seve Ballesteros on their sleeves and played their hearts out Sunday at Medinah to match the greatest comeback in history and head home with that precious gold trophy. Europe got its payback for Brookline. Martin Kaymer gave German golf redemption for Kiawah Island. Jose Maria Olazabal squeezed his eyes and fought back tears when Kaymer holed a 6-foot par putt - about the same length that countryman Bernhard Langer missed at Kiawah in 1991 - to beat Steve Stricker and give Europe the point it needed to keep the cup. Tiger Woods missed a 3 1/2-foot par putt on the 18th hole and conceded a par to Francesco Molinari that halved their match, that extra half-point making it a clear-cut win for Europe,

Europe’s Nicolas Colsaerts and Luke Donald watch as team captain Jose Maria Olazabal kisses the Ryder Cup at the closing ceremony. 14 1/2-13 1/2. Woods and Stricker, the anchors in the lineup, didn’t win a single match at Medinah. “This one is for all of Europe,” Olazabal said. “Seve will always be present with this team. He was a big factor for this event for the European side, and last night when we were having that meeting, I think the boys understood that

believing was the most important thing. And I think they did.” Ian Poulter was the first to embrace Olazabal, which was only fitting. It was Poulter who gave Europe hope Saturday evening when he made five straight birdies to turn a loss into a win and swing momentum in Europe’s favour. Poulter was up to his fist-

pumping, eye-bulging tricks again on the final day, winning the last two holes in his match against U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson. And he had plenty of help. Europe’s top five players in the lineup all won, including Rory McIlroy, who was lucky to be playing. McIlroy kept thinking his match was at 12:25 p.m. - it was listed in Eastern time, not

Central - and he needed a police escort to get to the course with 10 minutes to spare. Then, he came up with key birdies to hand Keegan Bradley his first loss of the week. The biggest match might have belonged to Justin Rose. He was on the verge of losing to Phil Mickelson when Rose holed a 12-foot par putt to halve the 16th, made a 35-foot birdie putt from the back of the 17th green to win the hole, and then closed out Mickelson with a 12-foot birdie on the last hole. Six of the 12 matches went to the 18th hole on Sunday. The Americans won only one of them. The Americans also rallied from a four-point deficit to win in 1999 at Brookline. This was different, though. The Americans won big in those early matches. At Medinah, so many of them could have gone either way. It was so close, so tense, that either side could have won the Ryder Cup down to the very end.

Dynamiters fall to Rockets, dispatch Posse Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters split their weekend schedule, losing 7-5 on the road to the Golden Rockets, but recovering at home with a 5-4 win over the visiting Princeton Posse. Jared Marchi and Taylor McDowell both had four-point nights in Golden on Friday, but their efforts couldn’t propel the Nitros to the win. Backup Justin Miller got the start, making 25 saves, while Rockets goaltender Danny Todosychuk earned the win by stopping 20 shots.

It was a relatively tame affair, as Golden capitalized once in three opportunities on the power play while denying the Nitros on all three of their chances. Both teams traded a pair of goals in the opening frame, as McDowell and Sam Nigg scored for Kimberley, while Josh Jewell and Keith Wake responded for Golden. It was more of the same in the second frame, with Jacob Bergeron scoring twice for Golden, while Dustin Long and Marchi answered for the Nitros. Connor Beauchemin was the third period hero

Ice freeze Pats, but can’t weather the Hurricanes Continued from page 8 Daniel Johnston put a point shot past Hoflin on a two-man advantage to tie up the game and Russell Maxwell capitalized on a backdoor pass on another powerplay to put Lethbridge in the lead. Maxwell scored

again from the slot on another power play in the third period, notching his fourth and final point of a monster night from the 18-year-old. Discipline from the Ice bench was lacking for most of the final frame, starting with an

for the Rockets, posting a hat trick, while the Dynamiters offence spluttered, with only Marchi finding the back of the net. A better result awaited Kimberley in their home barn on Saturday night as they defeated the Posse 5-4. The Nitros scored by committee as Marchi, Riley Hellekson, Connor Kutzner, Erik Buckley and Isaac Schacher all found the back of the net. Jeremy Mousseau earned the start for Kimberley, stopping 40 shots, while Jack Burgart stood in net for the Posse, turn-

ing away 19 shots. Marchi and Hellekson both scored in the latter half of the first period, while Kaley Boyle answered for the Posse on a power play with two minutes to go. Kutzner and Buckley found the net in the second period, while Kyle Raymond replied for Princeton. Riding a 4-2 lead going into the third period, Kimberley scored again when Schacher posted a goal within the opening minute. However, the Nitros came close to blowing it by allowing Brett Perrine and Lane Erickson to an-

swer for the Posse, but Princeton couldn’t mount a comeback, even with an extra attacker in the final minute. After the weekend action, the Nitros are tied with the Creston Valley Thunder Cats for first place in the Eddie Mountain Division and are in a pack of five other teams tied for fifth place overall in the KIJHL. Kimberley will have a home-and-home series with the Rockets next weekend, starting with a tilt at home in the Civic Centre on Friday before heading up to Golden on Saturday.

early check-from-behind penalty by Jaedon Descheneau. Albin Blomqvist and Jon Martin exchanged pleasantries after the the Hurricanes’ defenceman didn’t like a hit from the Ice forward on a teammate. Martin ended up in the box for charging, while Kootenay defenceman Joey Leach was tossed with a 10-minute misconduct for arguing with the official. Everything fell apart afterwards on a missed

call off a high-stick on Montgomery in the Hurricanes’ zone. The Ice forward, hunched over with his face in his hands, skated back towards his bench, but took exception with some chatter coming from Lethbridge side and reached across the boards to take some swings at the offender. That set off a line brawl as everyone grabbed a dance partner and started swinging.

“We lacked discipline tonight,” said Ice head coach Ryan McGill. “We played a very solid first period and we didn’t play the same way [after], knowing Lethbridge was going to come out even harder. “We lacked discipline with penalties and we lacked discipline with the way we need to play to be successful.” The Ice have a week off before facing the Prince Albert Raiders next Sunday at Western Financial Place at 6 p.m.

NEW YORK - The NHL and the players’ association met for a third straight day Sunday, and again avoided the troublesome money issues that are fueling the ongoing lockout. “We did not discuss core economic issues, as was the plan,” NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr said after meeting for five hours with the NHL. “We discussed health and safety, drug testing, including more discussion of drug testing, medical care etc. Also a number of things in the CBA legal area of player movements.” The drug policy was a key component of talks Friday when the sides got together for the first time since the NHL imposed the lockout on Sept. 16. On Saturday, the sides focused on clarifications of definitions of what makes up hockeyrelated revenue - a pot that exceeded $3 billion. “It was a productive day. We made some progress in some areas,” Fehr said Sunday. “I would say it’s good that we were talking. It’s true that we could’ve done this last week or a week before or a week before that, but it’s a lot better than doing it three weeks from now.” Because of difficulty in finding common

ground on how to split up that money, the league and union instead concentrated all weekend on secondary issues that will also be included in any new agreement.

“I hate to sound like a broken record, but we need some movement on the economic issues.” Bill Daly

“I hate to sound like a broken record, but we need some movement on the economic issues. We need some movement on the system issues,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. “We need them to be scheduled as the subject of a meeting, and right now the union is not prepared to do that.” Negotiations on Sunday were conducted at the league office without NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr and NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman. They met privately Friday and Saturday, away from the other group negotiations. There was a thought that talks might continue Monday, but that doesn’t seem likely as the NHL wants to meet internally with its clubs before getting back together with the players’ association.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My mother-in-law blatantly favors her oldest granddaughter, “Miranda,” to the exclusion of the other four. She says Miranda is the “good granddaughter” and her 17-year-old sister, “Amy,” is the “troublemaker.” I believe that Amy acts out partly because of the negative label she has been saddled with for years. Meanwhile, Miranda can do no wrong. She recently persuaded her grandmother to let her boyfriend move into the family home while her father was out of town. My husband and I live out of state. When we visit the relatives, my mother-in-law spends the entire time talking about Miranda’s glowing character and wonderful achievements. Our three kids only see their grandmother twice a year. You’d think she’d make an effort to get to know them a little. This favoritism does not do anything to promote family relationships. Our kids joke about their pecking order in the family and actually rank all the grandchildren through Grandma’s eyes. They realize that Miranda is No.1 and Amy is No. 5 and that they fall somewhere in between. How do we approach my mother-in-law about her favoritism, letting her know that it actually makes the other children resent both Miranda and her? -- Mom of Nos. 2 Through 4. Dear Mom: It may not help, but please ask your husband to speak to his mother. He should explain that her favoritism is obvious to everyone and that her strong preference for Miranda severely damages her relationships with the other grandchildren. Fortunately, your children have one another for support. They understand that Grandma is besotted with their cousin and that it is not a reflection on their character. It’s Amy who suffers the most. Please reach out to her. Dear Annie: I am the youngest of three children, and my parents are in their 80s. They both have myriad medical conditions. Since moving home, I got a new job and assumed the role of caregiver for my parents. I cook, shop, run errands, do laundry and take them to the doctor. My older sister, who lives out of state, visits often and jumps right in to help. She will even trim the bushes. My brother, however, I have no use for. He’s twice divorced, makes a six-figure income and travels extensively. He could easily do more for our parents, but his visits are infrequent, and he stays less than two hours. The role of caregiver is one that should be shared equally and enthusiastically between all siblings. It’s one of the most honorable things one can do. My brother understands that. He just doesn’t want to do it. What’s the best way to get him to start pulling his own weight? -- Holding It Together in Indiana Dear Indiana: You and your sister are kind and compassionate. But you cannot force your brother to be the same. Instead, ask him to contribute financially to your parents’ care. Use the money to hire additional help around the house or to have a caregiver come so you can get a break. Hopefully, he’ll be relieved to help in a way that doesn’t require his physical presence, and you will be less resentful. Dear Annie: This is for “Wondering,” who wanted to know how to ask his parents about his inheritance so he could plan his retirement. My mom passed away suddenly at the age of 64. Dad was devastated.

Heavy lifting needed to fill looming B.C. labour shortage Tamsyn Burgmann Canadian Press

AP Photo/Brennan Linsley

In this 2010, photo, upon landing after a helicopter rescue mission, Tech. Sgt. Jeff Hedglin, right, drapes an American flag over the remains of the first of two U.S. soldiers killed minutes earlier in an IED attack, assisted by Robert Dieguez, center, and Matthew Carlisle, in Kandahar province, Afghanistan. U.S. military deaths in Afghanistan have surpassed 2,000, a grim reminder that a war which began nearly 11 years ago shows no signs of slowing down despite an American decision to begin the withdrawal of most of its combat forces.

US military deaths in Afghanistan hit 2,000 after 11 years of war Patrick Quinn Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan — The killing of an American serviceman in an exchange of fire with allied Afghan soldiers pushed U.S. military deaths in the war to 2,000, a cold reminder of the perils that remain after an 11-year conflict that now garners little public interest at home. The toll has climbed steadily in recent months with a spate of attacks by Afghan army and police — supposed allies — against American and NATO troops. That has raised troubling questions about whether countries in the U.S.-led coalition in Afghanistan will achieve their aim of helping the government in Kabul and its forces stand on their own after most foreign troops depart in little more than two years. ``The tally is modest by the standards of war historically, but every fatality is a tragedy and 11 years is too long,’’ said Michael O’Hanlon, a fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington. ``All that is internalized, however, in an American public that has been watching this campaign for a long time. More newsworthy right now are the insider attacks and the sense of hopelessness they convey to many. ‘’ Attacks by Afghan soldiers or police — or insurgents disguised in their uniforms — have killed 52 American and other NATO troops so far this year. ``We have to get on top of this. It is a very serious threat to the campaign,’’ the U.S. military’s top officer, Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, said about the insider threat. The top commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, was blunter. ``I’m mad as hell about them, to be honest with you,’’ Allen told CBS’ ``60 Minutes’’. ``It reverberates everywhere across the Unit-

ed States. You know, we’re willing to sacrifice a lot for this campaign, but we’re not willing to be murdered for it.’’ The insider attacks are considered one of the most serious threats to the U.S. exit strategy from the country. In its latest incarnation, that strategy has focused on training Afghan forces to take over security nationwide — allowing most foreign troops to go home by the end of 2014. As part of that drawdown, the first 33,000 U.S. troops withdrew by the end of September, leaving 68,000 still in Afghanistan. A decision on how many U.S. troops will remain next year will be taken after the American presidential elections. NATO currently has 108,000 troops in Afghanistan — including U.S. forces — down from nearly 150,000 at its peak last year. Like so many other deaths in Afghanistan, the latest were shrouded in confusion and conflicting accounts. On Sunday, U.S. officials confirmed the deaths of two Americans, a service member and a civilian contractor killed late Saturday. The fighting started when insurgents attacked a checkpoint set up by U.S. forces in eastern Wardak province, said Shahidullah Shahid, a provincial government spokesman. He said the insurgents apparently used mortars in the attack. The Americans thought they were under attack from their allies at a nearby Afghan army checkpoint and fired on it. The Afghan soldiers returned fire, Shahid said. NATO did not say whether it considered this an ``insider’’ attack on foreign forces by Afghan allies. According to the Afghanistan index kept by Brookings, about 40 per cent of the American deaths were caused by improvised ex-

plosive devices. The majority of those were after 2009, when President Barack Obama ordered a surge that sent in 33,000 additional troops to combat heightened Taliban activity. The surge brought the total number of American troops to 101,000, the peak for the entire war. According to Brookings, hostile fire was the second most common cause of death, accounting for nearly 31 per cent of Americans killed. Tracking deaths of Afghan civilians is much more difficult. According to the U.N., 13,431 civilians were killed in the Afghan conflict between 2007, when the U.N. began keeping statistics, and the end of August. Going back to the U.S.-led invasion in 2001, most estimates put the number of Afghan civilian deaths in the war at more than 20,000. The 2001 invasion targeted alQaida and its Taliban allies shortly after the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States, which claimed nearly 3,000 lives. Victory in Afghanistan seemed to come quickly. Kabul fell within weeks, and the hardline Taliban regime was toppled with few U.S. casualties. But the Bush administration’s shift toward war with Iraq left the Western powers without enough resources on the ground, so by 2006 the Taliban had regrouped into a serious military threat. Obama deployed more troops to Afghanistan, and casualties increased sharply in the last several years. But the American public grew weary of having its military in a perpetual state of conflict, especially after the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq at the end of last year. That war, which began with a U.S.-led invasion in 2003 to oust Saddam Hussein, cost the lives of nearly 4,500 U.S. troops, more than twice as many as have died in Afghanistan so far.

VANCOUVER — Shipbuilding contracts, new liquefied natural gas plants and a booming mining sector are being hailed for keeping British Columbia afloat as worldwide economies falter, but they bring along a topsy-turvy problem. Jobs are expected to abound here in the next decade, but there won’t be enough trained workers to fill them. Recognizing a looming labour shortage in industries from construction to natural resources, the provincial government has embarked on a mission to make bluecollar work more attractive. Those in the field say the B.C. Liberals’ plan is just the start of the heavy lifting needed to build up the necessary manpower. ``There’s no silver bullet to solving the skills shortage, because the demographic issue that we’re all facing ... has been creeping up on us and you can’t produce more kids overnight,’’ said Philip Hochstein, president of the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C., which represents 85 per cent of construction work done in the province. The government is projecting that among the one million job openings expected by 2020, 43 per cent will require skilled workers. It predicts there will be a gap of 22,000 to 32,000 people in northern B.C. alone. According to government figures, between 2010 and 2020, the province will require 435,490 technical or skilled workers with a college or trade certificate. That compares to a need for 364,070 professional workers with a university education. Just under 200,000 workers with a high school diploma will be needed while those without a high school education will find just over 34,000 job openings. More than a year after the B.C. Liberals unveiled their provincial

jobs plan, the premier followed up earlier this month with an additional plan to develop the requisite skills and training to fill the positions. The range includes heavy-duty equipment technicians, carpenters, commercial transport mechanics, cooks, construction workers, electricians, metal fabricators, industrial mechanics, plumbers and sheet metal workers. The training strategy strongly emphasizes promoting careers in the trades, with a goal of boosting the number of high school graduates going into technical programs — instead of universities — by 50 per cent, among other initiatives. Premier Christy Clark said the plan represents a ``fundamental change’’ to how young people are prepared for entering the workforce, though only $75 million has been unveiled as part of this year’s overall $1.9 billion advanced education budget. The cash will be used to renovate facilities at both Okanagan College in Kelowna and Camosun College in Victoria, as well as fund upgrades to trades-related equipment at several other institutions. It does not represent any new investment, with some of the funds shifting from other spending areas within the education budget. More so, the plan revolves around shifting traditional thinking about what professions should be valued by society, said Advanced Education Minister John Yap. ``The shift is this: We need to promote the trades, and where there may have been a view that perhaps a career in trades is not desirable — that couldn’t be further from the truth,’’ Yap said. ``We’ve always placed a premium on doctor, dentist, lawyer ... but rarely does somebody wake up and say, ‘You know son? I’d really like you to learn how to weld aluminum,’’’ said Greg D’Avignon, president of the Business Council of B.C.

BCGEU deal drops privatization plan Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – the B.C. government has reached a tentative agreement with its largest employee group, as the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union has recommended acceptance of a two-year agreement with a four per cent raise. Premier Christy Clark announced the settlement Friday at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, after talks broke down in the spring and the BCGEU staged a series of strikes at liquor stores and government offices around the province. BCGEU president Darryl Walker said the government dropped its

proposal to sell the Liquor Distribution Branch warehouse and delivery system, which was “huge” for the union and a step towards privatizing government liquor stores as well. Clark said the settlement meets the government’s “cooperative gains” bargaining mandate, where savings and efficiencies cover the costs of pay increases, but offered few details. Walker said the 26,000-member union agreed to work with the government to reduce sick days and find new efficiencies in operations that include ministry operations, social workers, and provincial prison and court services.

Promise fulfilled Dear Wendy: I would like to learn the answer to two different situations that occurred in my youth and a couple of questions in the present. When I was a young lad coming home from school my grandfather called me to sit with him. He gave me a watch and asked me to promise that I would give this to my first born son. This promise was fulfilled. Is my grandfather aware of the promise fulfilled and is he looking out for us? An unusual occurrence occurred when I was in my 20’s; I saw the light at the end of the tunnel. This occurred when I had just had an operation. My present day question is; should my wife and I seriously consider downsizing and obtaining something more manageable in the foreseeable future? Curious Dear Curious: Yes, your promise was definitely fulfilled and you honoured your promise to your grandfather. I admire you for your honour and integrity in this situation. Your grandfather did come down and visit quite often with all of you and he knows that you gave your son his watch. He came to visit us today as we were doing a reading for you. I got some scattered bits and pieces of what he was saying because I am quite tired today. I do not know if any of this will make sense to you but this is what I was hearing. There was a girl child born and he wants you to know that he was there at her birth. He visited the child quite often when she was a baby. He also told me that he has and is looking after a baby in heaven for you and your family. So you have to think if anyone that you know had an abortion or miscarriage in your immediate family. If this is the case then this is the baby he has. He was also talking about a car I think the color was either maroon or red. I didn’t get anymore details about the car. As I said before I am quite tired today and it would be best if you want to talk to your grandfather; to come and see us for a proper channelling over to the other side. We feel that you should seriously start thinking about downsizing this

year and make specific moves to downsize next year. You talked about having an operation and during your operation you saw the light at the end of the tunnel. What is it specifically you would like to ask us about this occurrence? I tried to phone you but there was no answer so you can email me with the question if you wish and I will try to put it in next week’s column. ASK Wendy

WENDY Wendy Evano

Dear Wendy: I was reading in bed the other night and my daughter appeared at the end of my bed. She looked so happy and peaceful and she was smiling at me. I stared at her and smiled back and then I blinked and she was gone. Am I losing my mind; was that my daughter at the end of my bed? I miss her so much and have been asking God to give me an answer and tell me she is okay for so many nights. I took your advice and asked for what I want and need before I fall asleep and it seems to have worked for me in regards to my daughter. I feel so much peace and happiness since this happened and I know in my heart that she is okay and will be waiting for me when I arrive in heaven. Could you ask your guides if this really happened? If I ask God again will she come back and visit me? If she does I will let you know. Feeling Grateful Dear Feeling Grateful: I asked my guides for confirmation if your daughter did come and visit you and the answer was a definite yes. I also asked my guides if you continue to focus and ask your daughter to come and visit you again before you fall asleep, will she come. The answer was a definite yes. They also told me that your daughter will start to come and visit you in your dreams. So have a piece of paper and pencil handy by your bedside and start writing down your dreams when you wake up. You will start to see a consistent pattern of visits from your daughter if you do this. You have the ability to see many things in your dreams so work on that talent and ability that you have. Wendy

A man plays the accordion as French centenarian Robert Marchand, born on November 26, 1911, attempts to establish a record for the fastest 100-year-old to cover 100km, at the outdoor Velodrome track of Lyon, central France, Friday, Sept. 28, 2012.

100-year-old French cyclist set record riding 100 km in 4 hours, 17 minutes Associated Press

LYON, France — French cyclist Robert Marchand has ridden 100 kilometres in four hours 17 minutes and 27 seconds. Doesn’t sound fast? Consider this: March-

and is 100 years old. Setting off on his Trek racing bike around noon at a track in Lyon, Marchand covered the distance at an average pace of 23.3 km/h — not far off the 24.251 km/h pace he kept up to set

the world hour record for his age group in Switzerland last February. No prior record for a centenarian riding 100 km exists, but cycling’s international governing body will recognize Marchand’s feat, French

cycling federation head David Lappartient said. The president of Marchand’s cycling club says he’s an inspiration. ``He’s an example for humanity, he gives people hope,’’ said Gerard Mistler.

Smuggler fools jailers in Sweden, gets friend to serve time for him Associated Press

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — A man convicted of smuggling in Sweden outwitted his jailers by sneaking in a friend to serve most of his yearlong sentence, prison officials said Friday. The identity of the false convict was discovered only when he’d been released on probation after serving about

two-thirds of his friend’s sentence ``sometime in 2008 or 2009,’’ Elisabeth Lager of Sweden’s Prison and Probation Service said. Lager said the in-lieu convict came to serve the sentence with a false ID — a driving license in the name of the smuggler friend but with his photograph. She declined to name either

man or give more details about the switch. An international arrest warrant was issued for the real convict earlier this year, Lager said, but declined to comment on why it took police more than three years after the switch was discovered to issue the warrant. It was not clear if the smuggler’s friend would be pun-

ished for misleading prison authorities and assuming a false identity. The convict, who never served his term, was sentenced for a series of smuggling offences in southwestern Sweden in 2008. Several media reports said he had fled to Asia and had paid his friend for his ``prison-sitting’’ service.

SHENZHEN, China — A prestigious award from the world’s largest magic organization has materialized for famed Winnipeg escape artist Dean Gunnarson. Gunnarson has become the first performer of his kind to be given a Merlin — the highest honour bestowed by the New York-based International Society

of Magicians. The Merlin was presented for best escape artist of 2012 and was handed out at an event this week in Shenzhen, China, where Gunnarson was to perform an escape from a roller-coaster track. He had to free himself from chains and handcuffs in less than a minute and leap 10 meters to safety to avoid being hit by

the ride, which can go 135 kilometres an hour. Gunnarson suffered a broken bone in his foot when he was clipped by a roller-coaster while trying the same stunt before. Other notable Merlin winners include David Copperfield, Doug Henning, Siegfried and Roy, Penn and Teller and Criss Angel.
