Watch dog group watching hunters Hunting etiquette required C AROLYN GR ANT

A group of rural residents in the Pighin Road area of Wycliffe have put together an informal neighbourhood watch and are hoping to get a message out to hunters. That message? Be courteous about private land and gates, and think about those who live around your hunting area. Speaking for the group is Brenda Birrell who says she understands that many enjoy hunting, but a few bad apples are causing problems. “There are those who disagree with hunting for various reasons but most people can accept it when it is done ethically and legally. Unfortunately for the vast majority of ethical hunters there are a few “hunters” who give the activity a bad name.” Birrell says she and her neighbours have witnessed all kinds of unacceptable behaviour over the past few years and have compiled a list. Trespassers who ignore signs saying No Trespassing, No Hunting, Private Land, and who damage signs and then proceed onto private land. People who leave gates open so cattle end up in the wrong pastures and/or on private land.

“Friday Pie Day” was the shout heard up and down the hallway at Kimberley Independent School on Friday 5th October. The students embarked on a Thanksgiving endeavour that would place a pie in the hands of each family to further brighten their celebrations. All students, from pre-Kindergarten to grade 9, took part in the creation of over 110 pies. The day was highly educational with students learning traditional skills, being challenged to follow instructions, measure accurately, and scale up the recipe to a suitably grand scale. The students clearly had an excellent time and consumed litres of fresh apple juice in the process. The day proved to be a huge success, however it would not have been possible without the help and support provided by our families and community members. We would especially like to thank Overwaitea Foods who donated the pie ingredients for the second year in a row. Above, Miss Megan demonstrates apple cutting techniques.

Clovechok, Macdonald spar on Timber Committee response C AROLYN GR ANT

As is usually the case in politics, governing party and opposition don’t agree on much. In the case of the Committee on Timber Supply, the two-party committee consisting of Liberal and NDP MLAs was acknowledged by both sides as bipartisan.


However, with the recommendations issued by the committee, it appears to be back to politics as usual as the BC Liberals claim an active response and the NDP says the response shows the government fails to understand the forest industry’s problems. “To describe it as an action plan is ridiculous,” said Columbia River Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald (NDP). “It’s not an action


plan. It doesn’t deal with the issues laid out by the Timber Committee. In fact the intent is to cut the budget for forest health by $40 million. However, it’s dressed up, it’s not the dramatic change we need.” Not so, says Doug Clovechok, who hopes to occupy Macdonald’s legislative seat for the BC Liberals after the next election. “Our government’s response to the Spe-

cial Committee includes nine sustained and 11 new actions and is our next phase in responding to the mountain pine beetle infestation,” Clovechok said. Highlights include: a 10-year forest inventory strategy; innovative silviculture practices to grow more trees faster; and landscape fire management planning to reduce risks to the midterm timber supply, Clovechok says.

NOBODY BEATS THE BRICK. 501 Slater Road N.W. 250-417-3235


ROSWELL, N.M. _ Austrian extreme athlete Felix Baumgartner landed gracefully on Earth Sunday after a 24mile (38.6-kilometre) jump from the stratosphere in a dramatic, record-breaking feat that marked the world’s first supersonic skydive. Baumgartner came down in the eastern New Mexico desert about nine minutes after jumping from his capsule 128,097 feet (39,044 metres), or roughly 24 miles (38.62 kilometres), above Earth. He lifted his arms in victory shortly after landing, setting off loud cheers from jubilant onlookers and friends inside the mission’s control centre in Roswell, New Mexico. “Sometimes we have to get really high to see how small we are,’’ an exuberant Baumgartner told reporters outside mission control, shortly after completing the jump. He was expected to offer more remarks at an afternoon news conference. The altitude he leapt from marked the highest-ever for a skydiver. Organizers said the descent lasted for just over nine minutes, about half of it in free-fall. Officials say that Baumgartner has become the first skydiver to break the speed of sound. Three hours earlier, Baumgartner, known as “Fearless Felix,’’ had taken off in a pressurized capsule carried by a

55-storey ultra-thin helium balloon. After an at-times tense ascent, which included concerns about how well his facial shield was working, the 43-yearold former military parachutist completed a final safety check-list with mission control. As he exited his capsule from high above Earth, he flashed a thumbs-up sign, well aware that the feat was being shown on a livestream on the Internet with a 20-second delay. During the ensuing jump – from more than three times the height of the average cruising altitude for jetliners – Baumgartner reached a maximum speed of 833.9 mph (1,342 kph). That amounts to Mach 1.24, which is faster than the speed of sound. No one has ever reached that speed wearing only a hightech suit. Any contact with the capsule on his exit could have torn his pressurized suit, a rip that could expose him to a lack of oxygen and temperatures as low as minus 57 degrees Celsius. That could have caused lethal bubbles to form in his bodily fluids. But none of that happened. He activated his parachute as he neared Earth, gently gliding into the desert east of Roswell and landing without any apparent difficulty. The images triggered another loud cheer from onlookers at mission control, among them his mother, Eva

Baumgartner, who was overcome with emotion, crying. He then was taken by helicopter to meet fellow members of his team, whom he hugged in celebration. At Baumgartner’s insistence, some 30 cameras on the capsule, the ground and a helicopter recorded the event Sunday. While it had been pegged as a live broadcast, organizers said it was actually under a 20-second delay in case of a tragic accident. Baumgartner’s team included Joe Kittinger, who first attempted to break the sound barrier from 19.5 miles (31.4 kilometres) up in 1960, reaching a speed of 614 mph (988 kph), just under the sound barrier. With Kittinger inside mission control Sunday, the two men could be heard going over technical details during the ascension. “Our guardian angel will take care of you,’’ Kittinger radioed to Baumgartner around the 100,000-foot mark. Kittinger noted that it was getting “really serious’’ now. As Baumgartner ascended in the balloon, so did the number of viewers watching on YouTube. Nearly 7.3 million watched as he sat on the edge of the capsule moments before jumping. Baumgartner has said he plans to settle down with his girlfriend and fly helicopters on mountain rescue and firefighting missions in the U.S. and Austria.

Magic of Autumn gift show For the Bulletin

At the recent Fall Fair, the Kimberley & District Community Foundation attracted fair goers to spin for a chance to win five hundred dollars for a local non-profit organization. This is the second year that the KDCF has provided this offer for local organizations to win some extra funding. This year’s winning group was the Kimberley Speed Skating Club. Pictured above is Azaria Marina, representing the Speed Skating Club, receiving a cheque from Foundation Chair, Terry Oscarson. In addition, a prize of three introductory hot yoga sessions at the new One Love Hot Yoga Studio was won by Helga Logan and a free General Interest course at the College of the Rockies was won by Dillon Banman.

Group asks for hunting etiquette From Page 1 Fence wires cut instead of finding the gate that is already there. Making new gates on Crown or private property fences. Leaving animal remains right on or near major trails and roadways making it potentially dangerous for others who may be walking in the area. Bears and other wildlife are attracted to these remains and pose a risk to the residents who may not be aware the remains are there. This is a high usage recreational area for walking, riding and cycling for many, often with children. Disposal of remains keeping that in mind is essential for public safety. Poaching elk – hunt-

ing without proper tags. Shooting after dark. One area resident, while out walking last week, heard multiple shots in the McGinty Lake area after dark. Littering, and even defecating in the middle of a trail. Lying to local residents about having permission to hunt on private lands. Shooting while unable to clearly ensure what the target is. If a hunter is not sure of the target why would they shoot?! Ranchers have had cattle shot and left in the pasture. It seems many have forgotten that it is an offence to hunt on leased range land crown or private without specific permission from the

said leasee. In light of all this, the group feels they need to start reporting offences as they see them. “We have the Conservation Office hotline 1-877-952-7277 on our cell phones. If we see something that isn’t right, we call it in. If we hear shots on what appears to be private land or after dark, we call it in. We observe, record and report in an effort to ensure greater public safety and ethical treatment of the wildlife. “We expect hunters to respect the residents of the area and their private land. We are not anti-hunters. We are anti-Poachers and unethical practises.”

Fall is here and excitement is filling the air. The Magic of Autumn is just around the corner. The seventh annual arts and crafts show and sale takes place on Friday, October 19 and Saturday, October 20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Bootleg Gap golf course. This year’s show is bigger and better. It will feature more than 20 artisans and crafters from all over the valley displaying their beautifully hand-crafted quality items. Set in the Bootleg Gap clubhouse, this show will be drawing on the magic that is autumn to create a truly special event. Patrons of the show will be treated to many uniquely created items including gold, silver and glass jewelry, crocheted and knitted items, hand sewn creations, pottery, acrylic paintings, stained glass, hand-made cards, scroll work, honey, sweets and goodies, soaps and lotions, funky dolls and much more. In addition, on Friday evening, there will be coffee and refreshments available and on Saturday, there will be a soup and sandwich buffet so that shoppers can take time to enjoy themselves in this magical setting. There will be an admission fee at the door with the proceeds being donated to the Food Bank and the Cancer society. With the admission charge, people will be eligible for door prize draws featuring items donated by the participating artisans. Be sure to mark you calendars because the Magic of Autumn Artisan Market is a fall tradition that has something for everyone.

Dave and Morley bound for Cranbrook

Vinyl Cafe creator Stuart McLean will bring his tour to the Key City Theatre on Thursday, October 18 Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Believe it or not, Vinyl Cafe proprietor Dave was in charge of cooking the turkey this past weekend, according to creator Stuart McLean. “He has spent years trying to redeem himself and Morley is graceful enough that she would allow him to do that,” McLean told The Townsman during a Thanksgiving Day interview. ‘Dave Cooks The Turkey’ is one of McLean’s most popular stories about the fictional Toronto record store owner, his wife Morley and their two children Stephanie and Sam. In the infamous story, Dave offers to take some pressure off Morley by buying and cooking the Christmas turkey, but forgets all about it until Christmas Eve. It’s just one of the hundreds of beloved Dave and Morley stories McLean has created, and the bestselling author, radio host and awardwinning journalist will bring The Vinyl Cafe to Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on Thursday, October 18. McLean will share two new stories with the Cranbrook audience, “one where Dave goes on a yoga retreat with his daughter Stephanie, and one about Morley and her garden,” he said. Since he started sharing Dave and Morley stories on The Vinyl Cafe in 1994, McLean has written hundreds of tales about the lovable family. Now, they have become like family to him, McLean said. “One of the reasons I don’t seem to be able to stop writing about them is that I miss them. I keep wanting to be involved in their life, I want to know what’s going on with them, and I can only find that out by writing about them,” he said. The Vinyl Cafe airs Sunday afternoons on CBC, and does not consist solely of Dave and Morley stories. Many of the shows are recorded live while McLean is touring Canada, and can also include stories shared by the public, new Canadian music, commentary on the town McLean is performing in, and essays on Canadian life. McLean said it is important that his storytelling reflects Canadian values. “When I am writing about the country, I am writing about not only the places but the values that underpin the places, the Canadian values that I believe are important to remind people of, the things that we have held important over the years, that separate us,” he said. Canada was dealt a challenging

Stuart McLean hand, McLean went on, “at the card game of nation building.” “They gave us some pretty rough geography and a pretty difficult climate, and then they threw together two warring cultures, the French and the English. Amidst all of this... they said build a nation. “Not only have we done that, but in just about all of the areas where coming together is difficult, where it is hard and heavy lifting – which is what you do about those who cannot look after themselves, what do you do about those who are too old to work, what do you do about those that might harm themselves or others, what do you do about those of us who are ill and need help – in just about all of those areas, we have come up with creative and inspiring and functional things that work really well. That’s hard to do.” Canadians’ values have informed those tough decisions, McLean said. “Those are the values I try and celebrate and that I try to remind people of – that we are a certain way, and we believe certain things, and here are those things, and those things have served us well. I find it a joy to do that. “The values of caring and modesty... We have been concerned with the greater good rather than the good of the individual. Those are things that have served us well. We should be mindful of those things,” he said. McLean’s visit to Cranbrook is part of a B.C.-wide tour that the Vinyl Cafe team tries to do every two years. “It is a part of the country so unlike the part of the country where we live. This is our favourite tour. Autumn in the Kootenays and the Okanagan Valley is such a special treat for us,” said McLean, who is based in Toronto. “It’s one of the tours where I just sit in the bus and stare out the window for hours and marvel at what I’m going through.” Tickets to see Stuart McLean in Cranbrook are now sold out.

I’d like to brag that I was descended from Eleanor of Aquitaine who was once the richest person the world (apart from that computer guy) and only married kings for fun, but that would a bit of a stretch.  My kinfolk couldn’t have been sired by Richard Coeur de Lyon (Idaho) because he was overly fond of boys, and so I investigated the Plantagents who, unbelievably, produced the Black Prince and had one heck of a time explaining that little phenomenon. To tell the truth, I got tired of all that research because I’m positive that, if I were related to any English royals, it would be to some poor little princess who, after delivering seven brats, all of whom were called ‘Enri by their proud but thick-headed father, went off with some stud of a gardener and brought forth the eighth ‘on the wrong side of the blanket’, wherever that is.  Several people have suggested this theory to me quite forcefully over the years and I’ve grown thick-skinned over it, and that’s why I really don’t need those Thorlo trekking socks you brought me.  My feet are tough enough, thank you, whoever you were.

There is some comfort to be found in the prospect that Amanda’s video and her death may raise awareness about the many risks facing young people. But that’s not enough. There needs to be help readily available to them. There also needs to be justice. The unnamed “he” on Amanda’s video — who convinced her to “flash” for the webcam, then relentlessly tracked and intimidated her — needs to be found and punished. But he’s not alone. There were other tormentors who taunted her. Alienated her. Physically abused her. They are responsible for Amanda’s arms being scarred from too many cuts. A cruel gang of kids beat her. They led her to drink bleach and then mocked her for not drinking enough, for not having used the right brand, for not having died. They sucked the life out of her until she could bear it no longer. It’s little different from the swarm of Victoria teens — seven girls and one boy — who murdered 14-year-old Reena Virk in 1997. We shouldn’t trivialize what they did to Amanda by calling them bullies, even if all are adolescents themselves. They need to be named for what they really are: Tormentors, torturers, and maybe even murderers. And they need to be brought to account. Daphne Bramham is a columnist with the Vancouver Sun

Ice earn victories against Blades, Oil Kings TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice put themselves back in the win column this weekend, beating the Saskatoon Blades 4-3 on Friday and shutting out the Edmonton Oil Kings 1-0 on Sunday. The two victories snaps the Ice’s threegame losing streak as the team noticeably tightened up their defensive game, while goaltender Mackenzie Skapski was sharp in both games. It was also a bit of a statement, as the Blades are hosting the Memorial Cup this year and are looking to build a strong team, while the Oil Kings are the defending WHL champions. “It’s a nice feeling,” said Ice defenceman Joey Leach. “We had a slow start [to the season], and it’s nice to be able to put a weekend together with two wins, it builds everyone’s confidence up and gets everything put into motion. “We’ve come together as a complete team.” Brock Montgomery scored the game-winning goal against the Blades, while Collin Shirley was the lone goal scorer for the Ice against the Oil Kings. Montgomery opened the scoring against the Blades on a bit of a lucky break just after the halfway mark of the first period on Friday. The 20-year-old power forward threw the puck on net as he crossed into the offensive zone, which rebounded off goalie An-

drey Makarov’s chest and deflected off a defender into the net. Jagger Dirk doubled the Kootenay lead on a power play with two minutes to go in the frame, wristing a shot from the blue line that beat the Blades’ net minder. The opening 20 minutes was the best start the Ice have had this season, and the two goal lead by the end was a reward for their offensive and defensive efforts. “One big thing for us as a D-corps and as a team is having good sticks in the defensive zone and today, we didn’t let them have anything, we didn’t give them a sniff near our net,” said Ice defenseman Tanner Muth. “The goals that they scored were some nice shots, but we played a really tight game.” The Blades collectively woke up the second period, and Josh Nicholls cut the deficit in half, getting a tip on a shot from Kyle Schmidt. Nicholls got his second of the night in the third period, as some strong cycle work translated into a goal when the Blades’ sniper received a pass and snapped in a shot from the slot. Sam Reinhart broke the tie when he picked up the garbage in front of Makarov seven minutes later, but Saskatoon tied up the game again with a goal from Shane McColgan at 15:16 of the final frame. However, Montgom-

ery. “When a team puts in a full 60 minutes like that and our goalie keeps us in it all game — to put the boys ahead like that is a great feeling.” The result was the fifth straight loss for the Blades, the franchise

that just so happens to be hosting the Memorial Cup this year. “When you lose games on the road like this, it becomes a mental block and I thought tonight that we had a really solid effort and it didn’t

go our way tonight,” said Blades forward Adam Kambeitz. “I think we just need to keep staying positive in the dressing room and just keep working our butts off and and I think we’re bound to get through this.” The Ice rode that win into Sunday evening with a tight 1-0 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings. The defending WHL champions beat Kootenay in all six regular-season meetings last year and swept them out of the first round of the playoffs. Edmonton had some discipline problems, as the Ice had eight power play chances, but the Oil Kings killed them all Kootenay, in turn, shut the door on three separate penalties. It was a tight defensive game that opened with a scoreless first period. Both teams traded quality chances; Levi Cable rushed through the neutral zone, splitting Edmonton’s defence, but goaltender Tristan Jarry made the save, while Skapski replied with a great stop on T.J. Foster in the slot. Ice captain Drew Czerwonka rang the puck off the post on a power play late in the frame. The chances kept coming in the second period, as both teams stayed defensively sharp. Skapski made the save of the game when he denied Edmonton’s Curtis Lazar on a shorthanded breakaway and stopped the ensuing re-

bound from Henrik Samuelsson. The Ice thought they’d scored a goal during a scramble in the crease as a bunch of blue and black jerseys rushed Jarry, but the goal lamp never lit and the ref waved the play on. The Ice pulled ahead late in the frame when Collin Shirley broke in to the zone and roofed a shot stop corner over Jarry’s blocker. The Oil Kings got a little more aggressive in the third period as they tried to find the equalizer, but penalties and sharp play from the Ice, kept them off the scoresheet. “I’m feeling really good and looking forward to keeping this going,” said Skapski, of his efforts that earned the shutout. “My job is to stop the puck but my team did a fabulous job this weekend just making little adjustments and we’re really buying into the system.” Notes: Jon Martin returned to the lineup on Sunday from his threegame suspension for a line brawl a week ago against the Lethbridge Hurricanes. Zach Pochiro, of the Prince George Cougars, was handed a three-game suspension by the WHL for his check from behind on Ice defenseman Tanner Faith when the two teams met last Wednesday. Faith was able to leave the ice on his own power and played in Friday’s match against the Blades.

NY Yankees struggle after losing Derek Jeter to broken ankle RONALD BLUM Associated Press

NEW YORK _ A player stood at shortstop at Yankee Stadium, yet the shortstop was missing. For 16 years and 158 consecutive games, Derek Jeter had been in the New York Yankees’ post-season lineup, the Lou Gehrig and Cal Ripken of October. “When you think of post-season, you think of Derek Jeter,’’ Detroit manager Jim Leyland

said. And now Jeter was absent for Game 2 of the AL championship series against the Tigers on Sunday, off undergoing tests after his left ankle cracked during another stressful moment in another sapping game. Taking the captain’s place was Jayson Nix. Jeter’s body gave out Saturday on one of those autumn nights that has defined him, transformed him from a

strong-willed student to revered statesman. Trailing the Tigers one game to none, the Yankees faced the troublesome task of regrouping without their longtime leader. First Mariano Rivera, whose knee tore during batting practice in May. Then Jeter. Not since Game 6 of the 1981 World Series had the Yankees played in the post-season without both Jeter and Rivera

“We had to move on from a lot of different things this year,’’ manager Joe Girardi said. “We’ve lost the greatest closer of all-time, where people left us for dead. People left us for dead in August and September, said we were panicking. And we laughed at it, and we said no, we’re going to be fine. We won more games in the American League than anyone.’’ Moving on minus the slumping Alex Rodri-

guez, the Yankees did that. But this is Jeter, as much a part of Yankee Stadium as the pinstripes, monuments and 27 World Series banners. Not since rookie Mickey Mantle’s knee buckled during Game 2 of the 1951 World Series had such an integral part of the team gotten hurt so severely during a postseason game. Jeter had scans Sunday, which confirmed

the fracture. He was in a splint and on crutches, and will soon see foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in Charlotte, N.C.

Jeter will not accompany the Yankees to Detroit, and his recovery is expected to take three months.

Athletes represent hometown in weekend boxing event Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

Fists were flying at the Eagles Hall on Saturday night, as 11 bouts featuring local and regional talent met for fights in the ring. The Cranbrook Eagles Boxing Club hosted the event, which featured four member boxers on the card, as Shannon Ryan, Tyler Gallinger, Leah Savorie and Colin Adams represented their hometown. The main event featured Canadian champion Kenny Lally earning a unanimous decision over Kenny Guzman, a state champion out of the Flathead in Montana. The fight of the night went to Jag Seehra out of Prince George, who fought Parul Ahlawat, from came in from Edmonton. Ahlawat won by a unanimous decision after the two went to war right from the opening bell in the first round. Overall, Eagles Boxing Club coach Bill Watson chalks the night up to a big success. “There was 22 boxers that I had on paper for matches and 22 of them showed up so I’m very, very happy,” said Watson. “And then to see the fan support that we got that night, that was just the icing on the cake.” The Rumble in the Rockies opened with a bout between Ryan and Sophie Joern in the female novice youth cate-

gory. It was Ryan’s first fight, while Joern already had some ring experience under her belt, as well as a height and weight advantage. But it was Ryan who ended up getting the unanimous decision after three rounds of some aggressive work that put Joern on her heels. “At first, my tactic was get in and get to the body because she is taller, she is bigger,” said Ryan. “Then as the fight started progressing, she was just throwing left jabs and I figured I could get my right in there.” Ryan came out strong in the first round, while Joern got the upper hand in the second round. However, Ryan finished with a solid final round to an enthusiastic crowd that was clearly on her side. “The hometown definitely made it a lot easier,” said Ryan. “I could not have done it without all the support and everyone screaming at me during the fight.” Tyler Gallinger, another Cranbrook boxer, was fourth up on the card, facing Connor Coldicott out of Lethbridge. Like Ryan, Gallinger started strong in front of his hometown, taking the fight to Coldicott in the first round. Gallinger continued to land some hits in the second round, but was

quicker on his feet as Coldicott tried to get himself back into the fight. Gallinger landed a few big punches in the third round, one of which forced the ref to do a countdown on Coldicott. In the end, the young Cranbrook boxer earned a unanimous decision. “Tired,” said Gallinger, on how he felt right after the bout. “My face hurts a lot. I went into the fight—my nose wasn’t fully healed, I don’t know if it was fractured or what, but definitely the pain came back.” But it’s fair to say he had a blast, even if he was exhausted after it. “After the first round, I thought I was going to die,” Gallinger said. “The second round was very tiring and the third round it just hit me—I hardly had anything left, but I knew it was the last round and I had to give it all, so I just went as hard as I could.” Leah Savorie was the sixth fight of the night, and while she gave Mireio Ares Papalia a tough match, her opponent eared the decision. Savorie had Watson and Tom White, another Eagles Boxing Club coach in the corner with her. “We ran into a girl who was good, considering she had no previous fights,” said Watson. “For Leah to lose to somebody like that, it’s

We’ll take the loss — I told Tom afterwards, I said, ‘Tom, it’s not a loss, it’s a learn.’” Cranbrook’s Colin Adams fight against Colin Pham was the runner up to the main event, and the hometown boxer scrapped his way to a win against an opponent eight years his senior. Even though Adams got the win, he said he wasn’t completely satisfied with how he performed.

“I just couldn’t get my rhythm,” said Adams. “I didn’t really box him, I kind of brawled him, and that’s not my style. “I felt a little out of shape for some reason and I thought I could’ve done better, but I got the W [win] and that’s all that counts.” Next Eagles boxing action is a sub-novice event at the end of October up in Edmonton, and Watson is hoping to take Ryan and Gallinger to represent the club.

Nitros sweep Creston in home and home series Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters swept their weekend home and home series with the Creston Valley Thunder Cats, with a 4-2 road win on Friday and a 3-2 double-OT win at home the following night. Isaac Schacher was the overtime hero on Saturday, scoring a power play goal in the second extra frame to lift the Nitros to the win.

Dynamiters stopper Jeremy Mousseau stood in goal for both games, stopping 15 shots in Creston, and 31 shots in the Civic Centre on Saturday. Despite Nitro victories in both games, it was Creston who scored first on both contest. Trevor Hanna found the back of the net on a shorthanded effort with five seconds remaining in the opening period on Friday.

However, Jared Marchi responded for the Dynamiters less than a minute into the second period. Kimberley earned the win with a strong final period, off of goals from Isaac Schacher, Adam Hodge and Tyson Klingspohn. The only answer Creston had was a single goal from Ethan Rusnack with six minutes to go in the game. The Nitros capital-

ized once in eight chances on the manadvantage, while Creston scored a single marker on the power play in five opportunities. The T-Cats struck first in their rematch on Saturday in Kimberley, as Darcy Flaherty put Creston ahead four minutes into the game. However, the Dynamiters came back and took the lead in the following frame off of goals from Sam Nigg and

Marchi. Creston tied up the game in the final period in the dying seconds as Angus Johnston sent the contest into overtime. Creston failed to score on any of their five power plays, while Kimberley capitalized twice in four chances. Mousseau eared the first and second star respectively in both games for his performance between the pipes.

ing or saying something unusual or subtly hostile, look within yourself. It is important to express negative feelings, too, but in a palatable manner. As a result, you could experience a new beginning. Tonight: Catch up on a friend’s news. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are in the limelight, and you’ll make an impression on a boss or supervisor. The trail you blaze easily could lead to a new beginning, if you so choose. Your creativity flourishes, yet the cost of this selfexpression could be high. Tonight: Could go into the wee hours. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Use timing to facilitate your desires. Individual conversations will flourish in the morning and midday. Afterward, take a serious look at what is happening around you.You might want to do more research. Tonight: Let your mind wander. Daydream away.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been married for 36 years. Eight months ago, I learned that my husband had been calling other women, one in particular, for the past two years. The calls included text messages and pictures. The woman he was mostly in touch with is someone I know. She is married. My husband would call her multiple times, and each call would last nearly an hour. In addition, they would text each other 40 times during the day. My husband refuses to explain why he started calling her and will not tell me what they talked about. This has led to some terrible fights. I don’t know what to do. I love my husband very much and was devastated to learn about these calls. He says they did not have a sexual affair, and I want to believe him. I have gone to counseling. He went once, but when the counselor asked him to talk about the phone calls, he became angry and stomped out. I suggested going to a different counselor, but he says he doesn’t need to. I have forgiven him, but I am haunted by images of them together. I would like him to respect our marriage enough to tell me the truth, but I have no idea how to get him to open up. Am I being too demanding? -- Lost in the Country Dear Lost: You are not wrong. Your husband doesn’t want to take responsibility for his affair (physical or emotional) and has made you believe that you are not entitled to the truth. But he has an obligation to be completely transparent about his motives and behavior. Since he refuses counseling, please continue on your own and work through this in whatever way is best for you. Dear Annie: I am really concerned about my husband. He became unemployed at the beginning of this year when we were expecting our second child. Right now, he is selling cars to get by, but the hours are brutal, and the pay is inconsistent. He went back to school to study computers and network security and applied for a job with a computer company. This is an exciting opportunity for him. The company asked to schedule an interview. My husband told them he is busy this time of year, but would be available as soon as he has next month’s schedule and can check the dates. He left his cellphone number for them to contact him, and now we are just waiting. It has only been a few days, but I am so stressed about this. By saying he was busy, did he take himself out of the running for an interview? -- Mrs. Concerned Dear Concerned: No. Your husband should call the company as soon as he knows his schedule. The fact that he is busy with another job could actually work in his favor. There is, of course, a possibility that the company will hire someone else in the meantime, but that could have happened regardless. Concentrate your thoughts on a positive outcome. Good luck. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Kids First,” who took a cruise with her in-laws. She was upset when she had to leave and discovered that her husband and in-laws went out drinking and took the 12- and 14-year-olds along to watch. I think she should lighten up. These were adults having a good time on vacation. Also, these kids are not toddlers. If Mom sits down and talks to her children about her feelings, they will learn to be responsible. She shouldn’t shield them from life. -- D. Dear D.: We agree that the best way to teach your children to hold fast to the moral standards you set is to teach and explain, not avoid and shield. But it helps when those relatives and friends the children look up to do not deliberately undermine the parents.

featureS Birdwatching with the Rocky Mountain Naturalists

Deep in the heart of migration season Da ryl C al der

When Canadians spot migratory ducks and geese, we know that the seasons are changing. But these flocks are just the beginning — over 500 species of migratory birds make Canada their home for part of each year. Migration is the regular seasonal journey undertaken by many bird species. Movements include those made in response to changes in food availability, habitat or weather. However, some journeys are not termed ‘true migration’ because they are irregular or in only one direction. Many bird populations migrate long distances along a ‘flyway’. The most common pattern involves flying north in the spring to breed in the temperate or Arctic summer and returning in the autumn to wintering grounds in warmer regions to the south. Of course, in the Southern Hemisphere the directions are reversed, but there is less land area in the far south to support longdistance migration. The primary motivation for migration appears to be food; for example, some hummingbirds choose not to migrate if fed through the winter. Also, the longer days of the northern summer provide extended time for breeding birds to feed their young. This helps diurnal (daytime) birds to produce larger clutches than related non-migratory species that remain in the tropics. As the days shorten in autumn, the birds return to warmer regions where the available food supply varies little with the season. These advantages offset the high stress, physical exertion costs, and other risks of the migration such as predation. Most migrations begin with the birds starting off in a broad front. Often this front narrows into one or more preferred routes termed ‘flyways’. These routes typically follow mountain ranges or coastlines, sometimes rivers, and may take advantage of updrafts and other wind patterns or avoid geographical barriers such as large stretches of open water. The specific routes may be genetically programmed or learned to varying degrees. The routes taken on forward and return migration are often different. A common pattern in North America is clockwise migration, where birds flying north tend to be further west, and flying south tend to shift eastwards. Many, if not most, birds migrate in flocks. For larger birds, flying in flocks reduces the energy cost. Geese in a V-formation may conserve 12 – 20% of the energy

Watching the migration at Elizabeth Lake they would need to fly alone. Birds fly at varying altitudes during migration. Seabirds fly low over water but gain altitude when crossing land, and the reverse pattern is seen in landbirds. However, most migration is in the range of 150m to 600m. Bird-hit aviation records from the US show most collisions occur below 600m and almost none above 1800m. Bird migration is not limited to birds that can fly. Most species of penguins migrate by swimming along routes that can cover 1000km. Blue Grouse perform ‘altitudinal’ migration mostly by walking. Emus in Australia have been observed to undertake long-distance movements on foot during droughts. Unfortunately, many of the world’s migratory birds are in decline; many characteristics of migration render them particularly vulnerable to a variety of threats. Undertaking such dramatic movements pushes birds to the limit of their endurance. They are reliant on favourable weather conditions and must find sufficient food resources at multiple sites throughout their journey. Along the flyway, important habitats for migrants are under threat from infrastructure and housing development, energy development (mining and drilling for fossil fuels), tropical deforestation and the spread and intensification of agriculture.

Historically, hunting was a major threat to migrating birds along the flyway. It no longer occurs on a catastrophic magnitude but the thousands of lead shotgun pellets fired every year pose a significant hazard to some species of waterfowl and scavenging raptors. However, well-managed hunting can provide a strong financial incentive for the retentions of natural habitat. Migrating birds are at risk through collision with man-made structures such as power lines, wind turbines and telecommunication masts. In the face of such a diverse array of threats, the conservation of migratory birds depends on international collaboration and a co-ordinated response along entire flyways. The Rocky Mountain Trench is part of the ‘Pacific Americas Flyway’ which extends along the western flank of North and South America. Canada’s ‘Important Bird Area’ program, initiated in 1996, is a science-based initiative to identify, conserve and monitor a network of sites that provide essential habitat for Canadian bird populations. About 11,000 sites in 200 countries presently exist with two sites near Cranbrook. The Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area protects globally and nationally significant populations of waterfowl and con-

gregatory birds; those which form large groups at certain times. Also, the Skookumchuck Prairie IBA helps protect nationally significant populations of ‘threatened’ bird species. At Elizabeth Lake this week, naturalists enjoyed the antics of the soon-to-migrate Yellow Rumped Warblers. One tall shrub filled with six or eight of the streaky brownand-yellow birds and their distinctive sharp ‘chips’. Spring moult brings a transformation, leaving them a dazzling mix of bright yellow, charcoal gray and black, and bold white. Yellow Rumped Warblers are fairly large, full-bodied warblers with a large head, sturdy bill and long, narrow tail. Weighing less than half an ounce, these birds forage in the outer tree canopies at middle heights and ‘sally’ out to catch insects in mid-air. They cling to the bark surface to look for hidden insects more than many warblers do. Their flight is agile and swift, and the birds often call as they change direction. Their populations are stable or increasing in most areas. Migrating Yellow Rumped Warblers, like many migrants, are frequently killed in collisions with radio towers, buildings and other obstructions.   Birds seen at Elizabeth Lake on October 9 (33 sp.)

Zombies awaken!

The living dead came back to life in Cranbrook on Saturday, October 13 for the first Cranbrook Zombie Walk. The undead made their way down Baker Street to Baker Park, raising more than $750 for the Cranbrook Food Bank. Organizers offered thanks to the many businesses that donated prizes and offered their services on the day. Photos by Sally MacDonald
