Young mother killed by rock through window Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A mother of two young children died Friday in Canal Flats after a rock flew off a passing truck and came through the front windshield of her vehicle. The Calgary woman, who has not yet been named, was travelling in the passenger seat of a Subaru Legacy while on vacation with her husband and children when she was struck and killed by an airborne rock, according to East Kootenay Traffic Services. An RCMP news release issued Saturday said the young family was driving north on Highway 93/95 about 11 a.m. on Friday, October 5, across the Kootenay River bridge. A large rock,

approximately 12 inches by five inches in diameter, came loose from a passing commercial vehicle’s dual wheels and struck the Subaru. The rock went through the front windshield into the passenger compartment, killing the 37-year-old female passenger. RCMP said the commercial vehicle was southbound, towing an unloaded lowbed trailer. The suspect vehicle was stopped some time later and seized. The investigation shows that the rock appears to have been lodged between the dual tires on the trailer. The driver of the commercial vehicle has been been released with no charges at this time, but the investigation is continuing.

Carjacking suspect has other charges The man charged in last week’s alleged carjacking is facing other offences in the Lower Mainland Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

The Port Coquitlam man charged in last week’s alleged carjacking and shooting incidents in Kitchener and Cranbrook is facing other charges in the Lower Mainland. Nicholas John Bullock, 26, is charged with robbery and possession of stolen property for allegedly stealing a vehicle by force on Tuesday, October 2 on Highway 3 between Creston and Yahk. Bullock was arrested in Cranbrook later Tuesday night in an incident where the RCMP officer discharged his weapon. Bullock was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. But before the incidents here in the East Kootenay, there was a bench war-

rant on Bullock from Port Coquitlam Provincial Court. He is facing charges there from September 13 of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a prohibited weapon without a license, possession of a firearm contrary to order, and breach of a probation order. There are also outstanding charges from December 2011 in New Westminster of uttering threats. Bullock will have a bail hearing in Cranbrook on Tuesday, October 9 at 1:30 p.m. Meanwhile, an investigation by B.C.’s civilian police watchdog has finished its preliminary stages.

Education network thinks big with next event CBEEN wraps up Jane Goodall appearances and looks forward to hosting national convention in Kootenays

Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

Dr. Jane Goodall has come and gone, and the Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network is ready to move on to its next exciting project. There isn’t much bigger in environmental education than Jane Goodall, but Duncan Whittick, executive director of CBEEN, said he’s pretty excited about what the group has coming up next. “CBEEN isn’t skipping a beat, and is already in the planning stages for another very big event,” he told sponsors, partners and supporters this week. The group is moving ahead with a proposal to host the 2014 Environmental Education and Communication National Conference in the area. The conference is usually hosted in bigger locations, but Whittick said the area is more than fitting for such a large gathering of environmental leaders. “This conference has never been hosted by a smaller region such as

ours, but we are confident that this area has the capacity and community support to pull an event like this off in style,” he said. The annual conference is put on by the Canadian Network for Environmental Education and Communication. The 2012 edition was held at the Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ont. from May 30 to June 2. CBEEN is now looking for letters of support to launch the bid to have it held in the Kootenays in 2014. Those letters are due by Oct. 21 to ensure they are part of the package sent in by CBEEN. “We are looking for letters of support from businesses, organizations and elected officials who believe that hosting this kind of event on the national stage would benefit our region,” Whittick said. CBEEN has officially launched its new Action website this week, located at, to cap off the Goodall visit and provide a place to learn about exciting ongoing environmental projects happening in the Columbia Basin.

IIO heads home Continued from page 1 Six members of the Independent Investigations Office (IIO) spent three days in Cranbrook looking into the shooting incident that occurred while Bullock was being taken into custody. Formed last month, the IIO investigates any police-involved incidents where a member of the public dies or is seriously harmed. While in Cranbrook, the IIO attended the scene, monitored the scene examination and collection of

evidence and the forensic examination of the vehicle. They also carried out neighbourhood canvasses and interviews with potential witnesses and the affected persons. The IIO investigation is ongoing but once complete, the Chief Civilian Director will determine whether the RCMP officer involved in the incident has committed an offence. If yes, he will refer the case to Crown counsel. Otherwise, the IIO will release a public report of their findings.

Free Halloween event suits all ages Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Let’s hoot and holler for Halloween! The Cranbrook Alliance Church is putting a different spin on the annual celebration by hosting a Halloween Hoedown. The completely free family event is for all ages of children and is intentionally un-scary for the littlest littlies. From 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31, visit the Alliance Church gymnasium (shared with

Kootenay Christian Academy) for an afternoon of fun. A hillbilly band will keep up with the tempo, while young ones take part in horseback rides, cookie decorating, games and face painting. There will be a petting zoo with goats, rabbits, ducks and sheep, clowns performing tricks, and popcorn to snack on. Last year, the event draw about 200 people, and there’s room for more. You can come for the entire event, or drop in before trick-or-treating.

encounter, the statistics say that many people do every day. According to statistics, 30 per cent of fires occur in the home, and surprisingly 81 per cent of fire deaths. These numbers are scary, but there is something you can do to help ensure your family’s safety should a fire break out in your home: Have two ways out! Cranbrook Fire & Emergency Services is teaming up with the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) during Fire Prevention Week, October 7-13, 2012, to urge residents to “Have Two Ways Out!” This year’s theme focuses on the importance of fire escape planning and practice. Only one-third of Canadians have both developed and practiced a home fire escape plan. And of the three quarters of Canadians who do have an escape plan, less than half actually practice it. As we saw in the scenario above, fire is unpredictable. Seconds and minutes can mean

the difference between life and death. We want to ensure that East Kootenay residents know what to do if a fire breaks out in their home. Preparation is an important part of being able to deal with an emergency and it is crucial you take steps to prepare your family for the potential of a home fire by having an escape plan and practicing it. Although preparing for the unexpected is difficult, reviewing the information below and taking action based on it to plan for a fire could save lives. Cranbrook Fire & Emergency Services recommends the following tips for planning your family’s escape:

If you have children and want to make this a family activity: • Make a map of your home. Mark a door and a window that can be used to get out of every room. • Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can

meet once they’ve escaped. Draw a picture of your outside meeting place on your escape plan. • Write the emergency telephone number for the fire department on your escape plan. • Sound the smoke alarm and practice your escape drill with everyone living in your home. • Keep your escape plan on the refrigerator and practice the drill twice a year or whenever anyone in your home celebrates a birthday.

If your family is all adults: • Walk through your home and identify two ways out of each room. • Choose a meeting place outside in front of your home. This is where everyone can meet once they’ve escaped. • Make sure everyone knows the emergency number for your local fire department. • Practice your escape drill twice a year.

B.C. man falls victim to E. coli C anadian Press


VANCOUVER — Health officials in British Columbia have linked the illness of a Vancouver Island resident to beef products from the XL Foods plant in Brooks, Alberta. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control received lab results Monday confirming the man’s E. coli sickness was caused by the same strain that has made at least 10 others sick across the country. Officials say the person who tested

positive has recovered, and they are continuing to investigate the bacteria’s source. It is the first case in the province that has been linked to the massive beef recall that began in early September. People have also fallen ill in Alberta, Quebec and Newfoundland. Officials say the B.C. centre receives reports of between 110 and 180 cases of E. coli each year, and there has been no increases in the number of cases carrying the XL Foods strain.

Candy Striper program in need of adult volunteers The East Kootenay Regional Hospital’s Candy Striper program is in desperate need of volunteers to continue Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

Patients at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital have enjoyed the companionship and care of the Candy Striper program since the 1960s. But now that program is looking for adult volunteers to keep it in the hospitals where it is a bright light amongst patient care. Sandy Zeznik, president of the Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary (CHCA), said the program is chock full of eager youth volunteers, but they need adult supervisors to keep the program going. “It’s not because of the kids,” she said. “We need the head people to look over the Candy Striper program. These young people need some supervision – we don’t want to let this program go.” Those adult volunteers provide training and supervision for the young volunteers as they do their hours. Many youth use the program to earn the 30 hours required to graduate. Students looking for a career in the medical field are particularly interested in the program, as they get to see nurses and doctors in action. Zeznik said they even get to lend a helping hand sometimes to nurses as they complete their daily duties. “This is a nice program, especially if they’re interested in the medical field,” she said. “They get an opportunity to see what help they can be in a couple hours.” Most volunteers spend about three hours after school in the facilities. In that time, Zeznik said they get a real sense of what their effort is doing for the patients. “They’re really helping people.

They’re doing a vital job,” she said. For the patients, the program is invaluable. A hospital stay can be a stressful time, and the volunteers get water or other items or simply lend an ear and chat. “I think it’s the joy of seeing young people volunteer,” Zeznik said. To become a Candy Striper volunteer, you must be a member of the CHCA, which is a mere $8 for a yearly membership. The program runs in both the hospital and the Joseph Creek Care Home. Zeznik said the Candy Striper program was recently renamed to the Youth Program to suit the modern environment in which it runs. It has been around in Cranbrook since the 1960s, and has been under the direction of long-time volunteer Helen Luke since 1997. She recently retired after 15 years leading the program, leaving a gap in supervision and a need to find new volunteers. When the program first began, training was done over a period of months. It is now shortened and takes a few hours in one evening to be certified to volunteer in the hospital or care home. The CHCA has decided to increase the number of co-ordinators for the program to three to better suit the time and complexity involved with the program. To get involved with the Candy Striper program, contact Zeznik at (250) 426-2660. The program has its roots in a New Jersey high school civics class in 1944. The girls in the class used striped fabric from their teacher to create the traditional red and white striped pinafore that is still used today.

Ten Percent Shift campaign coming to Cranbrook Submit ted

If every community member shifted ten per cent of their household purchases to “local first,” it would strengthen our community and benefit Cranbrook’s local businesses. That’s the message that CUPE BC President Barry O’Neill will be bringing to Cranbrook on October 17 at 7 p.m. The event is co-sponsored by CUPE BC and CUPE Local 2773 (College of the Rockies support staff) and will be held in room S207 at the College of the Rockies.

This event is a chance to have a conversation about the importance of local first, and about the impact that our choice to spend online or in other communities has on our local economy. This event is about the conversation, not about telling people where to shop or how to spend their hard-earned dollars. This will build on many other initiatives that highlight the community wide benefits to spending in our community. Another key point in the conversation that

O’Neill will be leading on the 17th is that local spending isn’t about unfair costs to the consumer. If you can’t get the good deal or locally is only poor quality, then don’t go. The goal is to find ways that average people can support our local economy. For more information please visit the website where visitors are challenged to take the “Ten Percent Shift Pledge”. The website also has information and ideas for shifting your spending towards local first.

Trudeau is being underestimated



t is inevitable, Justin Trudeau said last week, that the furor around his run for the leadership of the Liberal party will fade. As winter sets in and the halls get smaller, media attention will drift elsewhere. It always does. He’s right: The attention paid to his first official campaign speeches - really variants on the same stump speech - was outrageous. The content of the speech, when viewed in the harsh light of day, is scanty. Correct? So his critics are right. The man is a shell with charm and good hair, peddling a pastiche of platitudes. He has nothing to say. Or does he? Here’s what interesting about Trudeau’s campaign team: It has brain power up the wazoo. His campaign director was a senior adviser in the Dalton McGuinty-Ontario government back when it was still popular. His day-to-day go-to man has two master’s degrees, one of them in economic history, and is a former director of the Liberal research bureau. His best friend on the campaign wrote the platforms with which McGuinty had his greatest electoral success. His brother understands foreign policy from up close, having travelled to and written about some of the nastiest trouble spots on earth. Trudeau can therefore draw on all the policy depth he wants, in excruciating detail, any time he wishes. Why, one wonders, is he sticking to a broad discussion of principles and values, even though this further exposes his flank as a weak policy hand? The first reason may be this: Trudeau can’t very well claim to lead a movement to “build, not rebuild” if he exits the starting blocks with a deck of detailed policies

already baked. More to the point, there would be risk in relying on veteran Liberal policy thinkers to generate such a plan. There could be no worse disaster, for the Liberal party, than for the putative leader of a ground-roots reform movement to trot out yet another rehash of Liberal platforms from days gone by. Through three election cycles, the federal Liberal party’s greatest weakness has been that it doesn’t listen. Conservatives had their ears to the ground across Canada, paid close attention to what they heard, and crafted policy to suit public opinion. Liberals developed policy they believed was worthy, then tried to sell it to an apathetic or even hostile public. The long-gun registry was a case in point. Rural Canadians, in overwhelming numbers, never liked it. They deemed it ineffective at controlling gun crime, insulting to their intelligence and a needless intrusion in their lives. The Liberal party paid them no mind and lost rural Canada as a result. That was 70 seats, give or take. Another example is multiculturalism. The Liberals long took support from new Canadians for granted. The Conservatives discerned that many immigrants come from countries where conservative values are the norm. They proceeded to work that turf, yielding them 32 of 47 seats in the Greater Toronto Area in 2011. Which brings us back to Trudeau, and his stump speech. The Post’s Tasha Kheiriddin notes the text appeals to both reason (“we will create policy based on facts”) and emotion (“I am in love with Canada”), and so appeals to both idealists and pragmatists. True. But there’s more to it than that, I think. The Harper government, having scrapped the mandatory long-form cen-

sus, can no longer credibly claim to be making policy based on facts. Nor can NDP leader Tom Mulcair express unabashed love of Canada: That would be off-putting to his formerly Bloquiste base. The rhetorical structure therefore creates a pie-sized wedge of territory between the NDP and Conservative positions, which Trudeau intends to stake out as his own. It’s clever. There’s evidence of this throughout the stump speech, most obviously in the middle-of-the-road treatment of resources and the environment: Here Mulcair and Harper - one openly hostile to the oil patch, the other narrowly extractivist - have created the opening themselves. Trudeau is simply gathering a gift they’ve given him. More fundamentally, though, his discussion of values probes chinks in both the Conservatives’ and New Democrats’ armour. Paeans to hard work and opportunity, with an added nod to liberty in Calgary, are not something you’ll typically hear from a Mulcair New Democrat. And earnest references to social and environmental responsibility, decency, respect and the high road, are not typical of Harper Conservatives, I think it’s fair to say. The speech, therefore, conflates these two sets of values, both of which appeal to the majority, and neither of which Canadians are accustomed to hearing in proximity of the other, lately. Subliminally that says this: You can have it all, you deserve it all, and why aren’t you getting it now? This was not something scratched together on the back of an envelope, in other words. It is not a spontaneous speech, nor is Trudeau entirely comfortable delivering it, yet. But he’ll get better. And it will resonate. It was crafted by people who know precisely what they’re doing.

Skills training ‘our mission’, Dix declares


y column on skills training a couple of weeks ago gave short shrift to the NDP position: tax the banks and hand out grants for women’s studies, sociology and other worthless pursuits, while skilled jobs go begging. That’s a pretty crude caricature, so I sat down with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his legislature office last week to get a better sense of his thinking on the subject. Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades particularly. He meets frequently with business people now, and his recent speeches emphasize that every one of them talks about the growing shortage of skilled employees. Dix credits Premier Christy Clark and jobs minister Pat Bell with making some good moves recently, announcing equipment upgrades for vocational programs around the province. He says it’s because the NDP have been “pounding away at them for eight months” about freezing advanced education spending in their March budget. Dix calls that a crucial mistake and predicts the government will reverse it soon. “So I think, if we’re going to have a mission for four years as a government, if we’re elected, this is the mission: to start to

address the skills shortage,” he told me. In his speech to the recent municipal convention, and again at an NDP provincial council meeting, Dix zeroed in on B.C.’s apprenticeship system. Since the B.C. Liberals took it from trade unions and set up a Crown corporation called the Industry Training Authority in 2004, the completion rate for apprentices has fallen to 37 per cent, he said. Dix assured me he isn’t BC Views proposing to “blow up” the ITA, or hand control back to Tom unions. They will have “a Fletcher voice,” along with business. Speaking to the NDP executive, Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, president of the non-union Independent Contractors and Businesses’ Association, as the symbol of trades training decline.  Not surprisingly, Hochstein has a different take. The 37 per cent figure is misleading, Hochstein said, because under the ITA there are currently 32,000 apprentices in the system, twice as many as when it was union controlled.  Many drop out in the first year, and Alberta claims a better completion rate because they don’t start counting until the second year. And when Dix touts Alberta’s “mandatory” trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that

trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multi-skilling, multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of training.” The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll. Hochstein said the NDP talks a great game about getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one can’t be hired. Dix agreed with me that the public school system has over-emphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply. As B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen themselves often don’t encourage their kids, because they’ve been told all their lives that they are “tool monkeys” in a dead-end job. And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dix’s answer was a definite maybe. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press.

B.C. ranchers calling for wolf cull C am Fortems Kamloops Daily News

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — While many in the B.C. ranching industry are calling for a wolf cull, conservation officers are already targeting the animals under a provincial predator program. According to the latest numbers available, 146 predators were killed provincewide in the nine and a half months leading up to the end of 2011. That figure included 60 wolves. In the Thompson region, 21 wolves were killed. Terry Inskip said his family has ranched the area just north of Westsyde for decades without incident, until April of this year. “(Wolves) killed six yearlings in four days,’’ he said.

“They were here off and on all winter. They hadn’t bothered with anything but at the end of April, they started killing stuff.’’ The B.C. Cattlemen’s Association is calling for a provincewide cull, arguing their numbers are rising and cattle losses are mounting. According to recent reports, the last widespread wolf culls were done in the 1980s. More recently, wolves have been killed by trappers given bounties in order to protect endangered mountain caribou. Inskip said prior to this year, the last time a wolf was spotted on his property, which has been in the family for generations, was 1948. “Since then there’s never been a wolf,’’ he said. Ranchers will learn

more over the next month about how this year’s losses to predators stack up. “They won’t know until they do round up,’’ said Barriere-area rancher and former B.C. Cattlemen’s president Ed Salle. “My experience is... at times they’ll take four, five, 10 without disruption.’’ Under the provincial predator program, ranchers are given 70 per cent of the value of livestock killed by predators. A kill must be verified by conservation officers, who then attempt to track and destroy the animal responsible.

Sadie Parr, of the conservation group Western Wolf Pact, said hunting and sterilization programs could make matters worse because they upset stable family units among wolves. Packs splinter and young wolves may not be able to learn hunting techniques needed to kill large ungulates like moose. “There is no evidence to show that indiscriminately killing wolves works as a longterm solution. Depredations occur in areas that have been practising lethal control for decades,’’ the group said in a statement.

In the case of Inskip’s losses, conservation officers found and killed one male wolf. There have been no losses since, but Inskip said he might learn more this month when cattle return home from the late summer range. Salle said he lives on the “wolf side of the North Thompson,’’ where wolves have roamed for decades. “Guys around us are on pins and needles. You won’t know what you lost until you know. (Wolves) get good at picking animals and not running the herd out of the country.’’

Police watchdog called in after drunk Vancouver man dies following arrest C ANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — B.C.’s police watchdog is probing an incident in which an intoxicated Vancouver man died shortly after being in police care. Six members of the Independent Investigation Office will probe the events that began after 7 p.m. Saturday, when police arrested a 51 year old man who was causing a disturbance. Police say they learned he was barred from a local detox centre, so instead brought him to his home.

When they arrived, they found he had gone unconscious and so called an ambulance to take him to hospital, where he died shortly thereafter. Staff with the watchdog have been deployed to canvass the neighbourhood (at West 7th Ave., near Laurel St.), collect evidence and examine the police cruiser. The watchdog became operational in early September and is tasked with examining incidents where someone dies or there is serious harm done while under the watch of police.

Ice fall 5-3 as Raiders extend streak to six wins TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Prince Albert Raiders showed why they are the hottest team in the WHL right now by coming into Western Financial Place on Sunday and plundering a 5-3 victory out of the Kootenay Ice on Sunday evening. That gives the Raiders a six-game winning streak as the team hasn’t lost a game in regulation yet this season, while the Ice ceded their second consecutive game and now hold a 1-4-0-0 record. The Raiders scored four unanswered goals before Ice forward Brock Montgomery responded with a quick pair roughly a minute apart late in the middle frame, but Kootenay couldn’t edge out a third period comeback. “That’s a bad start,” said Montgomery. “We

had a week off and we should’ve come mentally prepared. No one did that and the onus is on the veteran players to come out and lead the way for the younger guys and I don’t think our top forwards and D [defence] showed the younger guys the way there.” Ice stopper Mackenzie Skapski started the game, but was replaced with Wyatt Hoflin after the first period. Skapski allowed three goals in eight shots, while Hoflin made 11 saves. Andy Desautels stood in goal for the Raiders and made 26 stops during the contest. It was a flat first period that doomed the Ice, as Sawyer Lange scored first for the Raiders less than two minutes into the game on an early powerplay. Davis Vandane dou-

bled the lead seven minutes later, banging in a feed from the slot, and import Leon Draisaitl found the back of the net off an odd-man rush to increase the Raiders’ lead to three. The goaltending switch didn’t seem to faze the Raiders, as Shane Danyluk capitalized near the halfway mark after a few minutes of sustained pressure by Prince Albert in the Ice’s zone. However, with a few minutes to go in the period, the Ice woke up, as Montgomery went to work. Streaking down the right wing, Montgomery wound up and blasted the puck into the top corner over Desautels’ shoulder in a slap shot so well placed, it exploded the goaltender’s water bottle.

Nitros split weekend with Rockets Local boxers preparing for

weekend bout at Eagles Hall

Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters split their weekend action with the Golden Rockets in a home-and-home series, dropping a 6-2 decision at the Civic Centre, but pulling out a 4-3 doubleovertime win on the road the following night. The Rockets ran amok in the Nitros’ home barn, scoring five goals in the second period alone as they marched towards a victory on Friday, while Isaac Schacher lifted Kimberley to the win on Saturday with the OT goal. The Rockets got things started in Kimberley with a late first period goal by Jacob Bergeron, but the floodgates opened in the second period. Carson George scored twice, Blake Roney notched a goal, Bergeron potted another and Keith Wake pulled out a shorthanded marker as the Rockets devastated the Nitros’ defence in the middle frame. Kimberley starter Jeremy Mousseau was pulled halfway through the period on Bergeron’s second goal, replaced by Justin Miller who al-

Mitchell Loose, a new acquisition for the Dynamiters, finally found the back of the net for his team on a power play late in the period, banging in a no-look backhand through his legs past Rocket’s net minder Danny Todosychuk. Connor Tetlock posted the other goal for the Nitros, scoring on a breakaway halfway through the final period. Schacher was the hero for the Dynamiters on Saturday night, notching the winner in

double-overtime to lift Kimberley to the win. Both teams scored twice in the opening period, but traded goals in the following two frames to force an extra period. Golden grabbed the lead for the second consecutive game, as Felix Larouche scored less than a minute in, while Bergeron posted a marker on the man-advantage roughly halfway through the frame. Sam Nigg put the Nitros on the board with just under five minutes to go, and Taylor McDowell found the equal-

izer in the final minute. Brett DeFrias scored the go-ahead goal in the second period, but Corson Johnstone responded in the third to force overtime. Kimberley now sits in second place in the Eddie Mountain Division, one point behind the Fernie Ghostriders and one point above the Columbia Valley Rockies. The Dynamiters will get back at it next weekend with a home-andhome series with the Creston Valley Thunder Cats.

Ice couldn’t recover from flat first period Continued from page 8 Montgomery scored again 1:06 later, capitalizing when Sam Reinhart fed him a pass while breaking into the Raiders’ zone on a power play. The Ice continued to make case for a comeback in the third period, when Jordyn Boyd notched his first goal in a Kootenay uniform, picking up the garbage just outside the crease in front of Desautels. “Our mental game came around, we got a couple goals and thats when we got excited,” said Montgomery. “I don’t think that’s when

we should be getting excited, we should be getting excited right from the first face-off.” Kootenay then spent the next four minutes looking for the equalizer, but it was the Raiders who scored, when Danyluk got his second of the game off an oddman rush. The Ice played the remaining three minutes of the game with a sense of urgency that was missing for most of the contest, but the Raiders held off the onslaught that came with an extra attacker when Hoflin was pulled.

Reinhart was in on all three Kootenay goals, while Jagger Dirk and Jaedon Descheneau picked up assists as well. Kootenay Ice utility man Jeff Hubic moved up into the forward ranks to cover the absence of Jon Martin, who served the first of a three game suspension as part of WHL discipline for a line brawl against the Lethbridge Hurricanes a week ago. A few minutes before Montgomery’s goals, Hubic showed the first signs of emotion from the Ice, dropping the gloves with Joey Santucci in a brief

scrap in the Prince Albert’s corner Ice defenceman Spencer Wand made it back into the lineup, as did forward Luke Philp, who both recovered from day-to-day injuries. Philp proved to be slippery out on the ice as he tried to weave in between the Raiders defence and dodged a hit, which cause the collision of two Prince Albert players. The Ice are back at it on Wednesday night to take on the Prince George Cougars, who will roll into town for the first of a three-game road trip.

Cranbrook boxing enthusiasts can get their fix next Saturday as the Eagles Hall will host a boxing event featuring local athletes on the fight card. Ryan Lindsay, Colin Adams, Tyler Gallinger and Shannon Ryan are representing the Eagles Boxing Club and have confirmed bouts set up for the event, which begins at 7 p.m. Boxing coach Bill Watson is also working on getting matches for two more of his students in Gage Duthie and Leah Saverie. Watson has fighters coming in from all over Alberta and Montana to participate in the fight, as the main event features Kenny Lally against Kenny Guzman. Lally is a three-time Canadian champion, while Guzman is a Montana State champion, which should make for an exciting finale for the evening.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I want to share my story of depression -- and hope -- so that it might help others. I’m nearly 50 now, but only recently did I recognize the depression that has plagued my life. I had the symptoms for decades: bursts of anger, loss of appetite, lack of interest in work and activities, avoiding people, constantly thinking about death. A few years ago, it hit me hard. For weeks, I couldn’t leave my bed, and suicidal thoughts filled my mind. I was a “dead man walking.” My emotions were burned away, and I saw no point in living. Finally, I began seeing a therapist on a weekly basis. Progress was slow, but each bit of relief was a stepping-stone out of the darkness. I learned that you have to look after yourself. Overworking, not eating right, lack of exercise, not enough sunshine and cutting yourself off from social situations all feed depression. If you can get out of bed and get out the door -- if only for a little while -- that’s a major thing. National Depression Screening Day is Thursday, October 11. I recently found out about it from a friend. I wish I’d known about it years ago and taken a screening. Readers can go to and find a nearby screening location or take a free, anonymous screening online. They also can find out what to do next. I’m alive today because I managed to get help in time, but I lost years of real living before I understood that I had depression. I strongly urge anyone reading this who even suspects they might have depression to do a screening. Sincerely -- Mike Stephens Dear Mike: Thank you for sharing your story. Depression affects millions of Americans from all walks of life and all demographics. National Depression Screening Day can be enormously helpful for those who are concerned about depression. We hope our readers will check to find out about a screening. Dear Annie: What do I tip when eating at a buffet where the server takes the drink orders but does nothing else? What about at a Japanese restaurant where the server takes our orders and serves the meal, but the sushi chef prepares the food? Our favorite Japanese place has a tip jar at the sushi bar. I feel a tip should be left for both the server and the chef, but I don’t know how to divide it. I was told that the sushi chefs keep their tips and the others are split. I’d appreciate some guidance. -- Liz Dear Liz: At a buffet, etiquette experts recommend a 10 percent tip (on the pre-tax amount) because the server takes drink orders and clears the table. If you sit at a sushi bar where the food is served directly to you, tip the chef on the food and the server on your drinks. If the server brings you the food, tip the server. Tip jars, whether at a sushi bar or a coffee shop, do not obligate you to leave anything. However, if the service (or sushi) was exceptional or complicated, or if you are a regular customer, you may wish to do so. Dear Annie: I would like to respond to “The Drunk’s Wife.” My 67-year-old husband came home many nights so drunk he could barely stand up. After putting up with this for 40 years, I finally had enough. I told him that I loved him, but the next time it happened, I’d be gone. Two weeks later, he came home toasted, and I packed a bag and left. He called all night, begging me to come back. The following day, we talked. I said I’d return, but there would be no more second chances. He knew I meant it. That was two years ago. He hasn’t been drunk since, and our marriage is better than ever. -- Stuck to My Guns Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

If he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, a tragic fall could be live-streamed on the Internet for the world to see. Rigged with cameras, the 43-year-old former military parachutist from Austria is scheduled to jump from a balloon-hoisted capsule 23 miles near Roswell on Tuesday morning. He wants to break the record set in 1960 by Joe Kittinger, who jumped from an open gondola at an altitude of 19.5 miles. Kittingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speed of 614 mph was just shy of breaking the sound barrier at that height.

Those solutions are something NASA is watching closely. The space agency is interested in the potential for escape systems on future rocket ships. Baumgartnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top medical man is Dr. Jonathan Clark, a former NASA flight surgeon whose wife, astronaut Laurel Clark, died in the space shuttle Columbia accident in 2003. Clark is dedicated to improving astronautsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chances of survival in a high-altitude disaster. The No. 1 fear is a breach of Baumgartnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suit, which could cause potentially lethal bubbles to form in his bodily fluids, a condition known as boiling blood. There are also risks he could spin out of control, causing other problems. This death-defying venture is being sponsored by energy drink maker, Red Bull, which has funded other extreme athletic events. The projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team of experts has a plan for almost every contingency. The spacesuit and capsule were tested in the early skydiving prac-

stratosphere, is costing. But whether Baumgartner can make what he vows will be his final jump depends on the weather. A cold front that brought winds to the area this weekend prompted the team to move the planned Monday jump to Tuesday. Even the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, 200 miles to the north, was forced to cancel its opening mass ascension of more than 500 balloons on Saturday morning because of the high winds. Those balloons took off Sunday, but winds in the 9 mph range and above remain in the forecast for Roswell all week, and the jump can only be made if winds on the ground are less than 2 mph. Still, Baumgartnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team remained optimistic about getting the mission off the ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From what we are looking at so far, we are on schedule (for Tuesday),â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; meteorologist Don Day said at a media briefing Sunday.

Weather permitting, Baumgartner will be lifted into the stratosphere around 7 a.m. MDT by a helium balloon that will stretch 55 stories high. Once he reaches his target altitude, he will open the hatch of his capsule and make a gentle, bunny-style jump. Any contact with the capsule on his exit could break open the pressurized suit that will protect him from temperatures as low as minus 70 and a lack of oxygen. He hopes to reach a speed of 690 mph to break the sound barrier. Baumgartner, who has made more than 2,500 jumps from planes, helicopters, landmarks and skyscrapers over the past 25 years, promises this jump will be his last. He says he plans to settle down with his girlfriend and fly helicopters on mountain rescue and firefighting missions in the U.S. and Austria.
