The man charged in last week’s alleged carjacking near Creston that led to a police shooting in Cranbrook will remain in custody until at least November 5, 2012. Nicholas John Bullock, 26, appeared in Cranbrook Provincial Court on Tuesday, October 9, facing charges of assault with a weapon, robbery, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, possession of stolen property, and possession of a weapon with a dangerous purpose.

Kimberley tradition

Remembrance Day ceremony will go on Eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month C AROLYN GR ANT

With the Royal Canadian Legion Kimberley branch handing in their charter, the future of the annual Remembrance Day ceremony has been in doubt.

However, refusing to let a long Kimberley tradition die, a group of community groups have joined together to make sure the ceremony goes on as it has in the past. The Kimberley Air Cadet Squadron, the Elks Club and the Kimberley Community Band will join together to make sure the ceremony goes ahead, says Chris Van Moll from the Cadets. “It’s a community effort for a community

tradition,” Van Moll said, adding that none of the groups wants to see Kimberley’s Remembrance Day ceremony stopped just because the Legion no longer operates in the community. “The Cadets will look after the parade, Ian Ferrie will organize the Community Band and the sound system and the Elks will provide their hall for the after ceremony gathering.” The parade will muster outside of Centre 64

instead of above the old Legion building, but will still proceed through the Platzl to the Cenotaph for 11 a.m. The only thing Van Moll is not certain about is the Poppy Fund. He says they have contacted Legion command as to who might be directing the poppy campaign in Kimberley but have not received an answer. Anyone with more questions about the ceremony can call Van Moll at 250-427-3584.

East Kootenay Conservation Program expands to the west Co u rt e s y Ma rc y Ma h r

Local conservation groups are applauding news that the East Kootenay Conservation Program (EKCP) now includes the West Kootenay. This geographic expansion means that the renamed umbrella organization — now the Kootenay Conservation Program (KCP) — will forge new partnerships and help focus activities around private land conservation in both the East and West Kootenay. “For years now, many groups in the West Kootenay have looked at the conservation achievements of the EKCP and its partners and asked for something similar,” Program Manager Dave Hillary said. “We’ve expanded our service area to meet this need, and are excited by the opportunities for the new Kootenay Conservation Program to assist local groups in conserving and stewarding important private land in the both East and West.” Since its beginning in 2002, the EKCP has been working to support the conservation of private lands by building partnerships in the East Kootenay, and more recently in the West Kootenay. Within its expanded service area, the organization has facilitated the conservation of over

300,000 hectares of biological diverse and high value land, representing a conservation investment of over $100 million in the region. “KCP knows the West is different from the East,” said Grant Trower, of Friends of the Lardeau River and also a public representative for the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program (Columbia) Steering Committee. “The new KCP will be working on local conservation priorities, and supporting groups and agencies already working to sustain naturally functioning ecosystems. “It’s logical for KCP to be working Kootenay-wide to forge regional bonds since people who live here value the fish, wildlife and natural spaces that make this part of BC so special,” Grant added. The KCP was one of several partners that recently announced the Nature Conservancy of Canada has purchased 306 acres (124 hectares) in the Creston Valley near Wynndel. This land is home to endangered Northern Leopard frogs, at-risk Western Painted turtles, Townsend’s big-eared bats, and is a wildlife corridor for grizzly bears moving between the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges. A portion of the property will remain in agriculture, at the same time as


Species like this rare Northern Leopard frog, and others, will benefit from new Kootenay-wide conservation efforts under the name of the recentlyannounced Kootenay Conservation Program, formerly the East Kootenay Conservation Program. conservation measures are taken to safeguard

at-risk plants and animals. “Conservation of wildlife habitat and agricultural lands de-

pends on a broad range of partners including forestry, farmers, governments, industry and others,” Hillary said.

Ottawa to consider penning oilsands caribou C anadian Press

EDMONTON — A university expert on caribou says Ottawa’s plan to help the rapidly disappearing species recover leaves the door open to protecting them inside a giant fenced-off area in Alberta’s oilsands region. The idea of a 1,500-square-kilometre habitat pen was studied by an industry group last spring. The group’s report concludes a fence would

be technically feasible. It says it would function as a kind of lifeboat for caribou herds in the region until industry could restore their habitat. Stan Boutin of the University of Alberta says the idea is being pushed by the Oilsands Leadership Initiative. The caribou plan released by Environment Canada last Friday says that penning of woodland caribou should be considered.

Ready for a girls only night out? The Kimberley Independent School is hosting a ladies only event at the Kimberley Conference Centre on Saturday, October 20, 2012. The idea, says Sue Raymond, is not really to raise funds, although they would like to cover costs, but to just have a fun evening with your girlfriends. The evening will feature gourmet appetizers, a cash bar and singing and dancing to the music of 70’s super group Abba. Yes, it’s time to dust off your flares, grab your eyeliner and spend an evening singing along to the hit musical Mamma Mia. Mama Mia was a musical hit when re-

COTR Offers Older Worker Program through Kimberley campus

Centre 64 is the artistic centre of Kimberley, housing galleries, workrooms, a dance studio and of course, a theatre. Kimberley resident and performance artist Trina Rasmussen loves what Centre 64 has to offer and she wants to showcase it to the community in a different way. Unusual Musings, Ordinary Acts will showcase six different

College of the Rockies’ Kimberley Campus, along with the Invermere and Fernie Campuses, will be offering training to older workers thanks to a funding of $840,000 provided by the governments of BC and Canada through the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers. The Targeted Initiative for Older Workers Program will provide training for individuals between the ages of 55 and 64 who are currently unemployed and looking to return to the workforce. Coordinated through the Kimberley Campus, training is regionally distributed and will include six sessions throughout the East Kootenay with the inaugural programs running in Cranbrook beginning October 15 and in Fernie starting on October 16. The program will then run in Invermere in November and again in Fernie in January, 2013.

Kimberley Campus Manager, Mike Flowers, says, “BC Stats lists the Kootenays as having the highest unemployment rate in BC at 9.4%. We are hoping to help address that through this training.” Currently, about one quarter of the East Kootenay’s population is in the 55 to 64 age bracket. The 14-week program includes 10 weeks of instruction in areas like computers, soft-skills, workplace skills and job-search strategies. This will be followed by a four-week job placement. Participants will receive payment for their time in the program. For more information on the Targeted Initiative for Older Workers Program, contact the Kimberley Campus at 250-427-7116 ext. 3752 or

nity to kick back and dance and sing the night away with your girlfriends. Tickets ($25) are available at Velvet & Jinger in the Platzl and Black Bear. In Cranbrook, tickets can be purchased at Lotus Books. Tickets must be purchased by October 15 in order to finalize numbers for the caterer, so get yours today.

IH residents snap to smoking cessation program Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

The Interior Health region is second in line for the number of people who’ve accessed the yearold smoking cessation program in the province. IH filled 22 per cent of all orders for Nicotine Replacement Therapy from Sept. 30, 2011 to Sept. 30, 2012. the region was topped only by the Fraser Health Authority that filled 33 per cent of all orders across the province. That means that in the

Interior Health region, that stretches from from Kelowna to the Alberta border, 32,955 people ordered Nicotine Replacement therapy. The region covers 742,000 residents altogether. In the province there were 149,899 requests in a year – which the problem is calling a huge success. “Every year tobaccorelated deaths rob us needlessly of friends, family and loved ones. I personally know how difficult it is to quit,” said Premier Christy Clark in a recent

release. “Tobacco is the largest single cause of premature death and disease in our province, and although the numbers show that a lot of progress has been made, there is still more we can do. I’m so proud that one year later, our program continues to provide smokers with a new level of direct support to quit, to live smoke-free, and to improve their own health as well as the health of their families.” The Smoking Cessation Program offers smok-

ers free access to cessation drugs like Zyban and Champix for 12 weeks. Both drugs don’t contain nicotine but reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings in the brain. The program can be accessed by calling 811 or through a physician. There is also support available for those who are quitting smoking through QuitNow Services. That program is operated by the BC Lung Association and can be accessed online at www.

City passes zoning amendment Local hockey players C AROLYN GR ANT

Last month, the City of Kimberley signalled its intent to adopt a Zoning Amendment Bylaw that would allow them to dispose of the Chapman Camp pool and sell the land as residential lots. Last week, in a special Council meeting, a public hearing was held and then the bylaw rezoning the property to Low Density Residential from Public Institutional/Utility passed. The City can now go ahead with the sale of the land for residential lots. There were some objections to the plan and Troy Pollock, Manager

Planning Services outlined them to Council. One concern was that the City should not compete with private land sellers and should retain City-owned lands. However, the City’s response is that local governments are permitted to sell land under the Community Charter. The land is considered an asset that can be used to generate new revenue or stimulate new development. Another concern was that the property should remain a green space and possibly be used as a rest area for the Rails to Trails which runs quite close by the old

pool property. The City’s response is that Geigerich Park is in this neighbourhood and is a large, public City-owned green space and sports field. In fact it is within 100 metres of the pool property. There is also other land nearer to the Rails to Trails that could be developed as a rest area or neighbourhood trail head. Another concern was that the land was originally donated to the City for public use only. Pollock’s response is that there is no evidence,

such as restrictions on the title to support that claim. The final question was around what sort of zoning change there would be, the suggestion being that it should be restricted to single family dwellings with no duplexes permitted. However, Pollock says in his reply that the Chapman Camp neighbourhood already contains a diverse zoning mix, including two-family and multi-family properties.

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 chalk 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.” See Page 5

participate in Power Up 2012

For the Bulletin

On October 29 &30 North Star Skating Club hosted Danielle Fujita-Elford and her Power Up 2012 Skating Camp. Forty KMH hockey players participated in an action packed on and off ice seminar that was designed to improve their skating skills and technique. Ten local women took in on the action and worked as a group with Danielle to build on their skating skills for hockey. As well the Elks Club generously donated funds so that KMH Coaches could participate in the seminar by working with Danielle to increase their knowledge of powerskating as a fundamental skill in the development of hockey players. The powerskaters received on ice instruction with Danielle Fujita-Elford, Wayne Murray and Corey Miller as well as off ice conditioning, agility and strength with Leah Jossy, Kim Miller, Jacqui van Zyl and Tania Doerkson. Leah did a fantastic job of organizing the off ice component of the seminar. On Day 1 the powerskater’s were thrilled to receive a visit from Dynamiter players Sam Nigg and Olli Dickson. Sam and Olli emphasized the importance of sportsmanship by presenting on character building and the importance of good work ethic in hockey. Every powerskater received a free Dynamiter ticket to Saturday night’s game and the participants were thrilled to cheer on their favorite team! The Camp also highlighted the importance of mental fitness in hockey. Dave Gollogly

presented on mental skills training and the powerskater’s were provided some great tips on how to maintain focus in sports and take their game to the next level by using mental imagery. Alli Wilson, a dietician and accomplished road cyclist kindly volunteered for this year’s camp and spoke on the importance of fueling the body and hydration in sports. Alli’s expertise in nutrition and sports certainly provided a great addition to the workshops. And to conclude the weekend exNHLer Corey Spring volunteered his time to present an inspirational talk that left the powerskater’s with renewed enthusiasm for their sport. Corey and his son Sam certainly provided a great finale to the Camp and their partnership with NSSC was greatly appreciated. There were many people behind the scenes that volunteered their time to ensure that the Camp ran smoothly. Many thanks to Kim Miller, Christine Chatten-Wilson, Rich Wilson, Mike Flowers, Tasha Johnston, Glen Johnston and Donna Newel for their efforts. All proceeds from this camp went to NSSC so that it can continue to offer skating programs to local children and develop the skating skills of both hockey players and figure skaters. NSSC was pleased to be able to partner with KMH, The Elks Club and the Dynamiters to bring this opportunity to local hockey players and looks forward to future partnerships that can contribute to the development of hockey players in Kimberley.

Alleged carjacker will remain in custody From Front Page Heavily tattooed, Bullock seemed attentive but jittery during the court proceedings. Judge G. Brown remanded Bullock in custody until his next court appearance on November 5 in Cranbrook, though Bullock is expected to appear via video conference. The visiting judge also placed an order that Bullock not have any contact with the 17-year-old girl who is his co-accused in last week’s incidents near Creston and in Cranbrook. The girl, who like Bullock is from Port Coquitlam, was released Tuesday into her mother’s custody. Judge Brown placed the girl, who cannot be named because

she is under 18, on house arrest at her mother’s home in Port Coquitlam. The girl must stay at home unless she is at school or with an adult approved by her youth worker. Her next court appearance is also November 5. The girl entered the court room with her hands over her mouth and looked at her family in the gallery. She acknowledged the conditions for her release. RCMP said that Bullock was charged after a Creston man stopped to pick up two hitchhikers between Creston and Yahk last Tuesday evening, October 2. Shortly after picking up the pair, the male hitchhiker allegedly assaulted the driver of the vehicle and stole the car. Later the same night, RCMP in

Cranbrook spotted the allegedly stolen vehicle and attempted to stop it. However, the driver did not stop and an RCMP officer pursued the vehicle. The chase ended in an encounter on the outskirts of Cranbrook, where RCMP said the officer discharged his weapon, injuring the suspect. The girl in the vehicle was not injured; neither was the RCMP officer. Bullock has now been released from hospital. Before the incidents here in the East Kootenay, there was a bench warrant 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. B.C.’s civilian police watchdog, the Independent Investigations Office, is conducting an investigation into the shooting. 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 collecting 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.

Volunteers required From Page 4 Most volunteers spend about three hours after school in the facilities gaining their hours. 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.

compensation to innocent Arabs, Afghans and other Muslims who were swept up in the so-called “war on terror” and spent years in confinement without charge or trial, often being beaten or tortured? Very small, unfortunately. Under the pressure of events, even the governments of democratic countries readily abandon the rule of law, and they rarely apologise afterwards, let alone offer compensation. After fifty years the British courts can address the horrors of the colonial past more freely, but even now Britain will not bring the men who ordered the abuse of these old Kenyan men to trial. Yet their names are known, and some of them must still be alive too. Most crimes go unpunished. It’s true in private life, and it’s even truer for great states. But gradually, at the edges, the courts are making inroads on this ancient and brutal reality. As in, for example, Kenya itself. After the terrible post-election violence in Kenya in 2008, in which both the leading parties were deeply implicated, a Commission of Inquiry led by judge Philip Waki recommended that the Kenyan government set up a special tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the worst crimes. The National Assembly of Kenya, taking the British government as its model, refused. But the judge passed his evidence to the International Criminal Court, which opened a case against the senior officials of both parties held to be most responsible. The Kenya government did everything it could to stop the case, but it is going ahead in the Hague anyway – and a majority of ordinary Kenyans support the ICC process. So there IS progress, if only slowly.

NFL issues new player Eagles Boxing Club fielding discipline in bounty case local talent in weekend fight BRE T T MARTEL Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld the suspensions of Jonathan Vilma and Will Smith on Tuesday for their role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal and reduced penalties for Scott Fujita and Anthony Hargrove. Though an appeal panel created by the NFL’s labour agreement vacated the original suspensions on technical grounds, Goodell ruled he was sticking with his decision to suspend Vilma for the season and Smith for four games. Hargrove, a free agent

defensive lineman, will face a two-game suspension once he signs with a team. He originally was hit with eight games, but that was reduced to seven with five games already served. Fujita, who plays for Cleveland, will now miss only one game instead of three. Despite Goodell’s new rulings, the sevenmonth old bounty saga is not over. Vilma offered a response on Twitter, that read, in part, “this is not news to me pride won’t let him admit he’s wrong.” Smith issued a statement saying he will continue to explore his

appeal options. The players were implicated in what the NFL said was a bounty pool run by former Saints defensive co-ordinator Gregg Williams and paid improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents. The players have acknowledged a pool but denied they intended to injure anyone. The players can delay their suspensions by appealing again through their labour contract, which they have three days to do. They could also ask a federal judge in New Orleans to revisit their earlier request for an injunction blocking the suspensions.

TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Çranbrook Eagles Boxing Club will be well represented at an upcoming event this Saturday, as four local athletes prepare for showdowns in the ring. Colin Adams, Shannon Ryan, Ryan Lindsay and Tyler Gallinger have confirmed bouts set up on Saturday night at the Eagles Hall, which will be the first boxing event for the Eagles Boxing Club athletes this season.

“He’s going to be looking at himself in the mirror while boxing this guy, because they both have the same style, they’re both bangers.” Bill Watson Headlining the event is Kenny Lally, a threetime Canadian champion, who will challenge Kenny Guzman, an American out of Montana who is a former state champion. Eagles boxing coach Bill Watson is excited to

see what his athletes can do, considering the fact that it will be the first time in the ring for Gallinger and Ryan. Linsday’s fight has the potential to turn into the fight of the night because his opponent approaches fights in a similar manner, according to Watson. Lindsay, 17, will be fighting Ashton Litwinuk, an Alberta senior champion who is two years older than the Cranbrook product. “Before I took it, I called up a couple coaches who’ve seen him in action before,” said Watson, “and they said that he is a tough boxer, he comes straight at you and the first thing I thought of was, ‘Well, that’s Ryan’s style.’ “He’s going to be looking at himself in the mirror while boxing this guy, because they both have that same style, they’re both bangers.” Lindsay said he had no problem facing an older opponent like Litwinuk. “I’m just going to come in with top-notch head movement and speed and just out-box him instead of brawling,” Lindsay said.


Ryan Lindsay will step up a level and face Ashton Litwinuk, who is an Alberta senior champion boxer. Lindsay is going on his fourth year as a boxer, and Watson remembers seeing the potential in the young fighter when he first started coming to the gym four years ago. “He’s always had the punching power, he’s always hit hard,” said Watson. “His weaknesses were in his defence—he was just taking too many punches.

We’ve had to teach him the game of hitting and not getting hit, and he’s come a long way.” Lindsay lost an important bout last year that cost him a trip to the national stage, and Watson said his young pupil is hungry to prove himself. “This could turn into the fight of the night, because I guarantee it’s going to be a war.”

Cougars will be another tough test for struggling Ice Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

Raiders a good run for their money in the latter half of the game, but a flat opening period saw the opposition rack up a three-goal lead. However, the team pulled it together in the remaining 30 minutes and fought back to trail by one in the final period, before more Kootenay mistakes compounded into a twogoal lead for Prince Albert with three minutes to go. “Obviously, it’s pretty disappointing, the way we’ve started the season, but we played for 30 minutes against PA, we took it to them, we were dominating them,” said Ice defenceman Jagger Dirk. “We just have to do that for a full 60 [minutes] and we know we can beat any team in this league.” Ice head coach Ryan McGill bowed out of practice on Tuesday, opting for a seat in the stands as he got a global

The Kootenay Ice are in an unfamiliar place right now. Last place, that is. The club is struggling through a tough start to the season with only one win in five games, and the team will face another tough test on Wednesday night when they face the Prince George Cougars. The Cougars are 4-11-0 and will be hungry to recover from their last contest, a 7-5 loss to the Kelowna Rockets on Saturday night. On the other hand, Kootenay is hoping to bounce back from a 5-3 loss against the Prince Albert Raiders last Sunday. The Ice had an abysmal start, but showed signs of life later in the game, which highlights one of the main problems facing the team. Inconsistency. The Ice gave the


view of his players, while his two assistants, Chad Kletzel and Jerry Bancks, ran the show. The players were 45 minutes late stepping out onto the ice, and one can only imagine the conversation McGill was having with the team inside the dressing room. “He’s there for us,” said Dirk, before practice. “He’s hard on us, because we haven’t been playing well, but he just wants us to get better and wants this team to be better.” Dirk said he doesn’t believe that the team’s record is a byproduct of a younger roster, noting that it’s up to the older veterans to lead by example. “We are a younger team, but that’s no excuse,” said Dirk. “Everybody that’s made this team knows what it takes to win and we just haven’t been doing it lately.”

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - It was tough for Kevin Faulk to leave football. Any hopes he had of staying, though, faded when the New England Patriots’ running game made major strides. The team’s career leader in all-purpose yards made it official on Tuesday after two injury-plagued seasons. He formally announced his retirement after 13 memorable years in a ceremony at the team’s Hall of Fame attended

ing knee injury. He began last season on the physically unable to perform list then was activated and played seven games. But he was inactive for the 21-17 Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants. And this season, the Patriots’ revived running game has gained the third most yards in the NFL, led by Stevan Ridley’s 490. Faulk exceeded that total in just three of his seasons. Backups Brandon Bolden and Danny Woodhead also have been productive.

Nadal making progress in recovery from injury Ste ven Wine Associated Press

Rafael Nadal is eager to trade in his backstroke for his backhand. Swimming as part of his rehabilitation from a left knee injury, Nadal said he has been more encouraged recently about his progress and hopes to resume practice soon. He didn’t rule out playing next month in the ATP World Tour Finals or Davis Cup final,

but added that such a quick return would be difficult. “I don’t want to put any goals to play a tournament,” Nadal said Tuesday. “I want to go day by day. I go every day to the gym and the swimming pool to continue with my recovery. I am trying to not think that far.” Nadal spoke from his home in Mallorca during a conference call to pro-

mote his participation in an exhibition in New York in March. He has also said he’ll enter an exhibition in Abu Dhabi in late December. The 11-time Grand Slam champion hasn’t played since losing in the second round of Wimbledon in June. A partially torn patella tendon forced him to miss the Olympics, where he was

the defending gold medallist , and the U.S. Open, where he was the 2010 champion and 2011 runner-up. Nadal, 26, has battled recurring knee trouble for years and finds hardcourt matches especially difficult. But he said he can’t curtail his playing schedule if he wants to keep contending for a top ranking.

101 Kootenay St. N.


ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might want to let a difficult situation alone and instead watch how others work through it. Listen to your inner voice. Do not avoid incoming calls, especially as it is likely that you will hear good news. Tonight: Paint the town red. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your home life always is important, and you go out of your way to maintain a steady domestic life. Having priorities is important, but handling the other areas of your life is equally imperative. A friend or loved one has an unusually creative suggestion. Tonight: Mosey on home. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You make that extra effort, and others respond accordingly. Use positive thinking in order to manifest a wish. Your thoughts and words have an effect. An older relative or boss could be evasive, yet you know that he or she demands a lot. Tonight: Hang out with friends. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Curb a need to go overboard. You might feel quite touched by someone’s thoughtfulness. You also feel unusually secure when dealing with this person. Don’t worry so much about tension between you and a child or new friend. You cannot change his or her personality. Tonight: Use some self-discipline. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Thoughts that come to you in your sleep might be unusually significant right now. A close friend might be the perfect person to share this information with, as he or she could give you feedback. You very well might be able to manifest this idea, but on your schedule. Tonight: All smiles. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might not want to be an active participant in what goes on today, as you could be thinking about a proposal. A boss or higherup has a lot to share. This person has been observing you, and feels as if you are giving 100 percent of yourself. Your presence encourages others to break past boundaries. Tonight: Not to be found. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Zero in on priorities. You cannot

get past a problem without first having a discussion with a key resource. You might be making judgments that could prevent you from accomplishing an important goal. News comes in through a call or an email that delights you to no end. Tonight: First, find your friends. The rest will happen naturally. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You understand your role in a project, and you don’t hesitate to do what is needed to accomplish the end results. A partner teams up with you and helps you accomplish more. A brainstorming session will open up a door, though you might feel hesitant to walk through it. Tonight: Up late! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Let your mind expand as you play around with a certain situation. You might start to see a situation far differently, or in many different ways, as a result. Someone you like and who is lucky for you suddenly appears. Make plans to get together as soon as possible. Tonight: Reach out for someone at a distance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Deal with individuals directly.

The conversations that ensue will demonstrate their caring. Team up with someone who has the same goals as you, but offers something different. Your instincts are excellent, so follow through on a hunch. Tonight: Brainstorm over dinner. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You’ll discover much more of what is happening with others. You could get feedback from loved ones when trying to make plans. You suddenly might realize how much fun you could have with a certain person. Schedule a meeting for as late as possible. Tonight: Spontaneity works well. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You have a lot to do, and you will get it done -- as long as you do not allow someone to distract you. Your imagination could lead you down some interesting paths today, even literal ones. Understand why a partner might be negative about one of your suggestions. Tonight: Get to the gym.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband and I have a 20-year-old daughter, “Brianna.” We pay for her private college tuition, as well as all of her expenses. In August, Brianna was invited for a weeklong trip to Hawaii with her boyfriend’s family. She decided to go without discussing it with us. We had made plans to get her a new apartment that week so she could move in prior to classes starting, and she totally blew us off. I am so hurt by this. It seems disrespectful to us and to the commitment she has as a daughter. I have communicated very little with her since she left for school. How can I let her know this behavior is unacceptable? I am also disappointed in her boyfriend, who has known us long enough to be more sensitive to our family. What should I do? -- A Mom Dear Mom: Yes, it was rude that Brianna did not discuss the change in plans with you, but she is trying to assert her independence, and we recommend you let her. That means she should make more of her own decisions, and you need to stop paying for them. If Brianna receives a free trip to Hawaii and blows off apartment hunting, let her handle her own living arrangements. Don’t do it for her or fret that she won’t have a place to live. She’ll manage. Let her find a part-time job to pay for things you don’t want to finance. Help her become a responsible, mature adult instead of a dependent child. You’ll be grateful later. Dear Annie: I’ve been married to “Charlie” for 35 years. He is now semi-retired and works an afternoon shift three days a week. He wakes up minutes before going to work and comes home an hour before my bedtime. On his days off, he sleeps until dinnertime. He says there is no reason to get up during the day. I have tried staying up later, but I get too sleepy. I am in my 50s now, and the kids have left the nest. I’ve made lots of friends who are available during the day, but I don’t want to keep living this way. I miss my husband. Charlie and I have been to counseling numerous times, but it hasn’t changed anything. What do I do? -- Lonely in Kentucky Dear Kentucky: Charlie would rather sleep late than spend time with you. It could be that he’s avoiding you, is depressed or that his internal clock is simply set later. You could try to change your sleep habits to match his, waking up later so you aren’t too tired to stay up until the wee hours. Counseling helps only if both parties agree to work on what needs to be changed. If Charlie won’t address this, you can get counseling on your own and decide whether you will put up with the current situation in order to stay married. If you opt to stick around, adjust your attitude so that your focus is not on Charlie and his sleep habits, but on whatever makes you happy when you’re awake. Dear Annie: I am writing about the letter from “His Mom,” whose 15-year-old son is having sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend. They wanted to know who is responsible for paying for the girl’s birth control pills. As the mother of a 15-year-old boy, I’d like to say that what I loved about this letter is that both kids had talked to their parents about having sex. That is amazing and says a lot about both sets of parents. Kudos to them. Here’s my simple response: I think the boy should pay for condoms that he assiduously wears, and the girl should pay for her birth control pills. It provides double protection for pregnancy and the added benefit of STD protection. -- Jen from Connecticut Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

NEWS Sandusky sentenced to at least 30 years in Penn State sex abuse scandal Associated Press

BELLEFONTE, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In what sounded at times like a locker-room pep talk, Jerry Sandusky rambled in his red prison suit about being the underdog in the fourth quarter, about forgiveness, about dogs and about the movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seabiscuit.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; With his accusers seated behind him in the courtroom, he denied committing â&#x20AC;&#x153;disgusting actsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; against children and instead painted himself as the victim. And then, after he had said his piece, a judge sentenced him to 30 to 60 years in prison Tuesday, all but ensuring the 68-year-old Sandusky will spend the rest of his life behind bars for the child sexual abuse scandal that brought disgrace to Penn State and triggered the downfall of his former boss, football coach Joe Paterno. He leaves behind a trail of human and legal wreckage that could take years for the university to clear away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The tragedy of this crime is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story of betrayal. The most obvious aspect is your betrayal of 10 children,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Judge John Cleland said after a hearing in which three of the men Sandusky was convicted of molesting as boys confronted him face to face and told of the lasting pain he had inflicted. The judge said he expects Sandusky to die in prison. In a disjointed, 15-minute address before he learned his sentence, Sandusky said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my heart I did not do these alleged disgusting acts.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sprinkling his remarks with sports references, the former assistant coach spoke of being locked up in a jail cell, subjected to outbursts from fellow inmates, reading inspirational books and trying to find a purpose in his fate. His voice cracked as he talked about missing his loved ones, including his wife, Dottie, who was in the gallery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully we can get better as a result of our hardship and suffering, that somehow, some way, something good will come out of

Former Penn State University assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky arrives at the Centre County Courthouse for a sentencing hearing Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, in Bellefonte, Pa. this,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sandusky said. He also spoke of instances in which he helped children and did good works in the community, adding: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve forgiven, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been forgiven. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve comforted others, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been comforted. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been kissed by dogs, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been bit by dogs. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve conformed, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also been different. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been loved, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hated.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 counts, found guilty of raping or fondling boys he had met through the acclaimed youth charity he founded, The Second Mile. He plans to appeal, arguing among other things that his defence was not given enough time to prepare for trial after his arrest last November. Among the victims who spoke in court Tuesday was a young man who said he was 11 when Sandusky groped him in a shower in 1998. He said Sandusky is in denial and should â&#x20AC;&#x153;stop coming up with excuses.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been left with deep painful wounds that you caused and had been buried in the garden of my heart for many years,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. Another man said he was 13 in 2001 when Sandusky lured him into a Penn State sauna and then a shower and forced him to touch the ex-coach. After the sentencing, prosecutor Joe McGettigan praised the victimsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; courage and dismissed

Sanduskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a masterpiece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality and without any acceptance of responsibility.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was entirely selffocused as if he, again, were the victim,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; McGettigan said. Lawyers for the victims said they were satisfied with the sentence, but with four lawsuits brought against Penn State and several more expected, and Penn State labouring under severe NCAA penalties, cleaning up may take years. Ben Andreozzi, a lawyer for one the victims, said the university needs to do more: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important they understand before we get into serious discussions about money, that there are other, noneconomic issues. We need apologies. We need changes in policy. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about money.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Penn State fired Paterno after Sanduskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrest, and the coach died of lung cancer three months later. The scandal also brought down university president Graham Spanier. Two university administrators, Gary Schultz and Tim Curley, are awaiting trial in January on charges they failed to properly report suspicions about Sandusky and lied to the grand jury that investigated him. Over the summer, an investigation commissioned by Penn State

and led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh concluded that Paterno and other top officials covered up allegations against Sandusky for more than a decade to avoid bad publicity. After the report, the NCAA fined Penn State a record US$60 million, barred the football team from post-season play for four years, cut the number of scholarships it can award, and erased 14 years of victories for Paterno, stripping him of his standing as the coach with the most career wins in big-time college football. In a three-minute recorded statement aired Monday night by Penn State radio, Sandusky described himself as the victim of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;well-orchestrated effortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; by his accusers, the media, Penn State, plaintiffsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attorneys and others â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a claim the judge dismissed on Tuesday as an unbelievable conspiracy theory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I speak today with hope in my heart for a brighter day, not knowing if that day will come,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sandusky said. After the sentencing, Penn State president Rodney Erickson said in a statement: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our thoughts today, as they have been for the last year, go out to the victims of Jerry Sanduskyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abuse. While todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sentence cannot erase what has happened, hopefully it will provide comfort to those affected by these horrible events.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Big Bird takes starring role in presidential contest Beth Fouhy Associated Press

NEW YORK — Big Bird is flying high in the 2012 presidential campaign. President Barack Obama’s campaign deployed the beloved “Sesame Street’’ icon in a new TV ad Tuesday mocking Mitt Romney for saying he would de-

fund public broadcasting if elected. The foundation backing “Sesame Street’’ quickly disavowed the spot, and Romney dismissed it as un-serious even though the Republican hopeful brought Big Bird into the national political conversation at last week’s presidential debate.

Big Bird has been a big deal since Romney, in outlining ways he would cut federal spending, said, “I’m going to stop the subsidy to PBS,’’ adding, “I like PBS, I love Big Bird.’’ Romney’s vow to defund public broadcasting has been a staple of his campaign appearances for months, but

the nationally televised declaration last week in Denver — more than 67 million were watching — gave it a much broader audience than ever before. Romney’s comment drew immediate reaction on social media, with users posting online photos of Big Bird appearing down on his

luck or searching for work. Mock Big Birds have followed Romney to campaign events, and the real Big Bird even made an appearance on “Saturday Night Live’’ last weekend. “I feel like I’m famous now. I was walking down the street the other day and felt like everyone recognized

Extreme athlete cancels try at becoming first skydiver to break sound barrier Jeri Cl ausing Associated Press

ROSWELL, N.M. — Extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner cancelled his planned death-defying 37-kilometre free fall Tuesday because of high winds, the second time this week he was forced to postpone his quest to be the first supersonic skydiver. The former military parachutist from Austria had planned to ride a pressurized capsule carried aloft by a 55-storey, ultra-thin helium balloon into the stratosphere, and then jump in a specially designed suit. But high winds led to the decision shortly after 11:30 a.m. to abort. Because the balloon is so delicate, it could only take flight if winds were 2 mph or below. Baumgartner’s team said he has a second balloon and intends to try again, possibly on Thursday. The balloon had been scheduled to launch about 6:30 a.m. from a field near the airport in Roswell. But high winds kept the mission in question for hours. When winds died down, Baumgartner, 43,

suited up and entered the capsule and crews began filling the balloon. But the team’s discovery it had lost one of two radios in the capsule led to delays in the decision to begin filling the balloon, pushing the mission critically close to a noon cutoff for launch. As the balloon was finally filling, a gust of 25 mph (40 kph) whipped it around and could have damaged its integrity, mission technical director Art Thompson said. “Not knowing if the winds would continue or not, we made the decision to pull the plug,’’ he said. Thompson said the earliest the team could try again would be Thursday because of weather and the need for the crew — which worked all night Monday into Tuesday — to get some rest. Baumgartner was to make a nearly threehour ascent to 120,000 feet (36,576 metres), then take a bunny-style hop from the capsule into a near-vacuum where there is barely any oxygen to begin what was expected to be the fastest, farthest free

Among the risks: Any contact with the capsule on his exit could have torn the pressurized suit. A rip could have exposed him to a lack of oxygen and temperatures as low as 70 degrees below zero. It could have caused potentially lethal bubbles to form in his bodily fluids, a condition known as “boiling blood.’’

He could also have spun out of control, causing other risky problems. While Baumgartner hopes to set four new world records when he jumps, his free fall is more than just a stunt. His dive from the stratosphere should provide scientists with valuable information for next-generation spacesuits and techniques that could help astronauts survive ac-

cidents. Jumping from more than three times the height of the average cruising altitude for jetliners, Baumgartner expects to hit a speed of 1,110 kph or more before he activates his parachute at 2,895 metres above sea level, about 1,524 metres above the ground in southeastern New Mexico. The total jump should take about 10 minutes.

Winner of roach-eating contest collapses and dies Associated Press

MIAMI — The winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms, authorities said Monday. About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night’s contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles (64 kilometres) north of Miami. The grand prize was a python. Edward Archbold, 32, became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed in

front of the store, according to a Broward Sheriff’s Office statement released Monday. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities were waiting for results of an autopsy to determine a cause of death. “Unless the roaches were contaminated with some bacteria or other pathogens, I don’t think that cockroaches would be unsafe to eat,’’ said Michael Adams, professor of entomology at the University of California at Riverside, who added that he has never heard

of someone dying after consuming roaches. “Some people do have allergies to roaches,’’ he said, “but there are no toxins in roaches or related insects.’’ None of the other contestants became ill, the sheriff’s office said. “We feel terribly awful,’’ said store owner Ben Siegel, who added that Archbold did not appear to be sick before the contest. “He looked like he just wanted to show off and was very nice,’’ Siegel said, adding

that Archbold was “the life of the party.’’ Siegel said Archbold was selling the exotic prize to a friend who took him to the contest. A statement from Siegel’s attorney said all the participants signed waivers “accepting responsibility for their participation in this unique and unorthodox contest.’’ The bugs consumed were from an inventory of insects “that are safely and domestically raised in a controlled environment as food for reptiles.’’

me,’’ Big Bird said. The “Sesame Street’’ dis offered an opening to Obama, who has faced strong backlash for his widely panned debate performance. At rallies and campaign appearances every day since the debate, he has used Romney’s remark and referenced other “Sesame Street’’ characters to mock his opponent in a way audiences find funny and relatable. “He said he’d bring down our deficit by going after what has been the biggest driver of our debt and deficits over the last decade — public television, PBS,’’ Obama told people at a fundraiser Monday in San Francisco. “Elmo has been seen in a white Suburban. He’s driving for the border. Oscar is hiding out in his trashcan. We’re cracking down on them.’’ The satiric Obama campaign ad, set to air on national broadcast and cable stations, echoes that theme. The ad shows images of convicted financiers including Bernie Madoff and Enron’s Ken Lay, and suggests Romney believes Big Bird is responsible for their crimes. “Big, yellow, a menace to our economy,’’ the ad says. “Mitt Romney knows it’s not Wall Street you have to worry about, it’s Sesame Street.’’ While Romney’s comment drew criticism from PBS the day after the debate, the Ses-

ame Workshop, which supports “Sesame Street’’ and other public broadcasting shows, demanded that Obama’s campaign remove the ad. “Sesame Workshop is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization and we do not endorse candidates or participate in political campaigns,’’ the organization said in a terse, two-sentence statement. “We have approved no campaign ads and, as is our general practice, have requested that the ad be taken down.’’ Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt said the campaign was reviewing the organization’s concerns. Romney, campaigning in Iowa, dismissed the Big Bird ad as inconsequential and suggested Obama was focusing on trivial matters rather than the economy and high unemployment. “These are tough times with real serious issues, so you have to scratch your head when the president spends the last week talking about saving Big Bird.’’ Romney told a cheering crowd. “I actually think we need to have a president who talks about saving the American people and saving good jobs and saving our future.’’ Public broadcasting has long drawn the scorn of many conservatives who see it as wasteful and having a liberal bias.
