Project Society calls it quits Society helped build most of Kimberley’s sporting facilities CAROLYN GRANT

The Kimberley Project Society has been around for a very long time — organizing in February of 1957. Many people in Kimberley may be unaware that it even existed, but City Councillor Albert Hoglund — who’s been around a while himself — says that if you think about a recreation facility in Kimberley, from arenas to ski lifts to the Aquatic Centre, some financial help from the Kimberley Project Society will be in its history. Last week, Hoglund, one of the three remaining board members, handed over a cheque for $2944 to Terry Oscarson of the Kimberley Community Foundation. That was the last of the Project Society’s funds and the Society has now officially folded. It was a combination of things that led to its dissolution, but Hoglund says the writing was on the wall when the Sullivan Mine closed in 2001. “When Cominco closed, the Society lost about 95 per cent of its payroll deduction donations,” Hoglund said. “We had other organizations donating through employee payroll deductions too, but Cominco was the big one. There hasn’t been much revenue coming in so in 2009 the directors decided to wind it down.”

Local MADD chapter off and running Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

The Kimberley-Cranbrook branch of MADD Canada is hosting its first school event this week after forming mere months ago. Katryna Sigurdson is the new community leader for the branch, commonly known as Kimbrook, and is happy to be welcoming MADD’s School Assembly Program to area schools on October 18. The presentations are developed new each year and toured around Canada. Sigurdson said they have always stopped in the area, but this year will be the first time a local chapter has been involved in bringing them here. The presentation this year will be “Long Weekend,” a fictional story of four youths who make risky decisions as they enjoy a weekend at a cottage. Following the tale that twists into a horrific story of impaired driving, real-life stories are told about four people who have been killed in impaired driving crashes. Sigurdson said the new local chapter will be an active one, with a number of events coming up in the next few months. Funds raised here will stay in the local community and events will be targeted to the issues in the KimberleyCranbrook area. “It’s always important to have a local chapter,” Sigurdson said. “This way it’s geared to your local area.” The chapter has already been active in the community, hosting a Bagging for Charity event at Overwaitea Foods in Kimberley on October 6

and a Celebrity Server night at Boston Pizza. Details will emerge as new events get closer, but Sigurdson said there will be a Breakfast with Santa Claus fundraiser in December and a ski and snowboard event in January. Volunteers are needed to give the new chapter a kick start in the community. “If people have a certain area of expertise they are certainly welcome to come out and help,” Sigurdson said. To get involved with the local chapter visit MADD Kimbrook on Facebook or email them at MADDkimbrook@ The Long Weekend presentation will start off at Selkirk Secondary School in Kimberley on October 18 at 8:45 a.m. Students at Mount Baker Secondary School will have two opportunities to catch the performance at 12:40 p.m. and 2 p.m. “Educating this age group is essential at changing long term behaviours,” Sigurdson. said “We also encourage parents to come out and view the presentation.” MADD Canada says that almost 50 per cent of all road crash deaths involving 15 to 24 year olds are alcohol-related. In 2009, approximately 350 young people were killed and 41,000 were injured in impairment-related crashes. Also in 2009, 16 to 25 year olds constituted just 13.7 per cent of the population, but accounted for nearly 31.1 per cent of all alcoholrelated crash deaths.

Local foursome off to World Tough Mudder championships TRE VOR CR AWLEY Townsman Staff

Four Kimberley/Cranbrook adventurers are off to the world’s toughest endurance race in November. Mike Honeyman, Miles Chisholm, Matt Johnson and Joe Detta qualified for the World’s Toughest Mudder race after finishing with a good enough time at a race near San Francisco, U.S.A., at the end of September. The four finished the race with a time of 2:34:12, which included a 11-1/2-mile course featuring roughly 25 obstacles such as crawling through mud pits, climbing over walls and running through fire. That time was good enough to catapult the foursome into the world championships, which will be held in New Jersey in November, which features the top endurance racers on the planet.” Four local dudes stumbling into this thing in New Jersey with some of these athletes is going to be a little intimidating,” said Chisholm. The course at the World’s Toughest Mudder is bigger and badder, as racers will be running a 8-1/2-mile course with 40-plus obstacles for 24 hours. Getting to the race near San Francisco was took a year of training for the four, which was a journey in itself for Honey-

man, who lost 40 pounds to whip himself into shape. Honeyman and Detta know each other from work at Arrow Installations Ltd, while Johnson and Chisholm work together at Freightliner Ltd. The four got to know each other while going to the gym at Core Fitness, with the goal of training to get into better shape. Chisholm and Johnson do trail running early every morning before work and they invited Detta and Honeyman out one day. ”I think before they kind of realized that it was 5:30 in the morning, they kind of committed to going for a run with us and that’s kind of how it started,” laughed Chisholm. From there, the four decided to do an endurance race for a physical challenge and to get in some guy time. ”We started talking about doing something as guys to try and get a little guy time,” added Chisholm. “Three of the four of us are busy with kids and life and work so we wanted a bit of an adventure and this seemed like probably the best thing to do.” They chose a Tough Mudder race near San Francisco because they could make a guy’s trip out of it and it was also the closest kind of terrain to what they train around the Cranbrook region. “We figured we had a better

chance of doing well because we’d been training on hills for quite some time now,” said Chisholm. Honeyman is the oldest of the group and did a lot of his training with the Rocky Mountain Academy of Martial Arts, right down the road from where he works, to prepare for the race.Even though Honeyman is in the best shape of his life, he said he wouldn’t have been able to do it without his teammates. “There was times when I was hurting bad, but they encouraged me,” said Honeyman, “they helped me, they actually physically helped me because I was very, very sore, so for me it was an awesome experience all around.” However, being at the race in person was a lot different from seeing pictures and video on the Internet. “You get down there and it’s just a whole different experience,” continued Honeyman. “There are thousands of people everywhere, and there’s people being medically evacuated. “Where we were, it was super hot, the hills were crazy, way bigger than I expected.” The four completed the race with a time of 2:34:12, but they feel they could’ve finished a lot earlier if they didn’t have to deal with wait times at some of the obstacles. Their time

qualified them for the World’s Toughest Mudder, which will be an endurance race that pushes athletes to the physical and mental breaking point, said Honeyman. “Now you gotta train the mental game, it’s so much more and trying to do that for 24 hours, being dirty and cold and wet,” Honeyman said. “It’s like everything is going against you and I think the biggest factor to overcome is not so much the physical, because you’re going to get tired, no question, but the mental side of it.” Chisholm added that he was in New York three years ago on the same weekend as the world championship race when Hurricane Ida ripped up the East Coast. The race continued, business as usual. “They don’t cancel the race for anything,” Chisholm said. “The worse the weather is, the better.” According to Chisholm, 1,100 racers started last year, but only 900 completed the first lap. Of those 900 racers, an additional 300 were removed, and all but two of those 300 athletes were taken off the course because of hypothermia concerns. “The finals that we go to, they’re expecting far less than 10 per cent to actually complete the course,” said Chisholm.

Randall Hopley will have to wait to hear his sentence after completing a 60day assessment to determine if he is a dangerous or long term offender. On October 15, counsel for Hopley, William Thorne and Crown Counsel Lynal Doerksen asked to put the matter over to November 19 to set a new date for the continuation of his sentencing hearing in Cranbrook Supreme Court. Hopley was remanded into the custody of the Forensic Psychiatric Services Commission for 60 days on August 9. Should he be deemed a dangerous offender (DO), Hopley could be imprisoned indefinitely. He has pleaded guilty to abducting three-year-old Kienan Hebert in September, 2011. Should Hopley be

granted dangerous offender status, he would join a line of notorious Canadian criminals. The status delivers an indefinite sentence, and is the toughest punishment available to Canadian Crown counsel. In stunning video testimony played in Supreme Court on July 18, Hopley admitted to police that he abducted the boy from his Sparwood home in September, 2011. The father of the boy, Paul Hebert, also appeared in the video evidence, counselling the man who abducted his child and offering help. Hopley pleaded guilty to two charges from the abduction and charges relating to a break and enter in Alberta two years ago. He is charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit an indictable offence, break and enter and commit an indictable offence, and possession of stolen property over $5,000 stemming from an incident in the Crowsnest Pass in May 2010.


Leading by example As you know from previous columns I am a regular user of the Rails to Trails. As a result of those rides I often comment about things I’ve seen that don’t sit right with me. But this week was different. Not far from Cranbrook I observed a family of four approaching one of the road crossings. First off I noticed all four, including mom and dad were wearing helmets and done up! As I started to pass, the young girl veered to her left not realizing I was coming up from behind, mom no-

ticed and gently reminder her to stay to the right. Excellent tip. Then as they came up to the stop sign they all stopped. Looked for cars and then proceeded. It made my day. Thanks mom and dad for teaching your kids safe cycling skills.

Project Society folds Only four transplanted after 50 plus years caribou still survive

The Kimberley District Recreational Projects Society was formed in 1957 when 75 people met to discuss to projects vital to the community — the arena and a ski lift. The first board consisted of J. Kirk, J. McFarlane, M. DesBrisay, J. Glennie, G. Felker, H. Patterson and Don Lane. The final name is notable as Mr. Lane served on the Society for all these years and is still on the board at the time it Karen Soldan photo closes.

Just four of 19 caribou transplanted into the Purcell Mountains west of Cranbrook are still alive, less than one year after the transplant. Since the animals were brought to the area from northern B.C. last March to boost a dwindling herd, most have been killed by cougars or wolves, according to Steve Gordon, project manager of the Purcells South Mountain Caribou Herd Augmentation. "This is an unfortunate result. We are quite disappointed," said Gordon. "Obviously this isn't the success we had hoped for, but we are learning a lot from this that will inform how we proceed on other transplants and management of other herds in southern B.C." The endangered animals were brought from Dease Lake in northern B.C. in March in an attempt by the provincial government to revive a dwindling herd in the backcountry between the East and West Kootenay. There are less than 1,700 mountain caribou in existence. The Purcells South herd had around 14 animals before the transplant. To boost the local herd, 20 mountain caribou (17 females, three males) were taken from a healthy herd on the Tahltan First Nation, fitted with GPS radio collars then brought down to the Kootenays in specially designed

From Page 3 Upon arrival they found a totally destroyed SUV in the ditch. Turns out it had been stolen about a week ago. The next morning we received a report of a vehicle, which had been stolen in the same area as the crash. Coincidence? The third report was lodged Saturday morn-

ing. The officer became a little suspicious and did some follow up. He found the owner had been out the night but lost track of where. He did a few patrols and found the vehicle at one of the local bars. We don’t believe it was stolen, more like forgotten. The good part is the owner did not drive it home.

Early days of the experiment: Sedated mountain caribou are settled in the snow by wildlife biologists in March, 2012, upon the caribous’ arrival in the East Kootenay. animal trailers. One female caribou died en route. Unfortunately, the transplanted animals could not be dropped in the same draw as the resident herd because of poor weather conditions. Perhaps as a result, the transplanted caribou began to explore the area, with some heading out of their alpine habitat above 1,400 metres or 4,500 feet to the valley bottom around Cranbrook and Creston. “When they are wandering, they are at high risk. One of the things we are looking at to improve the chances of success of future transplants is: how can we reduce that wandering?” said Steve Gordon. Some made it as far as the United States. Four of the 15 caribou that have died were in the U.S.: three in Montana and one in Washington. “These are remarkable animals. They have

made some extensive movements,” said Gordon. The other caribou have remained in B.C., though some have swum across Kootenay Lake, while others wandered into the Rocky Mountains. According to Gordon, five caribou have been killed by cougars and three by wolves. “One important thing to note is that with only one exception, which is the most recent mortality, all of the predation mortalities have occurred when the caribou have wandered into low elevation areas,” he said. Three of the transplanted caribou died in accidents: one fell through ice into a stream and couldn’t get out; one fell off a cliff; and one broke its leg and was subsequently preyed upon by a cougar.

The great Cranbrook cat rescue of 2012 BARRY COULTER Townsman Editor

For the past couple of years, the Cranbrook neighbourhood near the creek behind SaveOn Foods has been home to a large population of half-wild cats, living the hard life but with enough interaction with humans — the wrong kind of interaction — to ensure that population kept growing. But recently, a group of neighbourhood residents joined forces with the East Kootenay SPCA to bring those cats in from the cold. “When you don’t spay or neuter your pets, this is what happens,” said Hugh Laurie, who was one of those involved in the rescue. “Over the course of about two and a half years, we got one giant clan of cats — cousins and cousins and cousins.” Laurie estimated that there were well over 50 cats that were living “half-wild,” in the neighbourhood bounded by 17th Avenue North, 4th and 6th Avenues North, and Joseph Creek. It’s great territory for cats. There is a large vacant lot off 6th Avenue and the riparian zone of the creek. There is lots of food and water for them, Laurie said. Humans live in a trailer court off 17th Street and the adjacent Wilshire Apartments. B.J. Howe of the SPCA described the cats as “loosely owned,” as opposed to feral, or fully

wild. In other words, cats that are not part of a household, that are living outdoors, but who have some interaction with humans — in particular, with food that humans leave out for them. Howe said a feral population of cats will, because of the strictures of the environment, regulate itself populationwise. As soon as you start feeding them, however, there can be a population explosion. “If you don’t feed a ‘loosely owned’ female cat, she will still be able to survive the winter,” Howe said. “But because it’s such a hard life, that cat won’t go into heat.” When well-meaning humans start feeding cats that are living outdoors, however, that changes. “What people don’t understand is that you’re not doing any kindness by feeding them,” Howe said. “You may be being kind to that one cat, but that cat will start having kittens, and then you’re creating more misery.” However, as more and more litters of kittens were discovered, with many of them in dire straits, several residents of both the trailer park and Wilshire Apartments stepped in. Cat traps were acquired from the SPCA and Cranbrook veterinarian Bob Clark, and the great rescue attempt began. Laurie mentioned Janet John, Kim Lutz, Judie Blakley and Melanie Caron, and neigh-

bours Linda and Phil, who got the impetus going. “We decided we needed to catch them,” Laurie said. “But we had no place to put them.” So Laurie’s son Spencer agreed to dedicate space in his trailer porch, and built a “cat condo.” Upon capture, the cats were taken down to Cranbrook Veterinary Hospital last Wednesday, where Dr. Bob Clark, Dr. Suzanne Thiessen and Veterinary Technician Anne Coulter performed spaying and neutering. The cats are now comfortably ensconced in Spencer Laurie’s cat condo. “We’re going to find homes for them all,” Hugh Laurie said. He said there are now seven four-monthold kittens and three adult cats ready for a home. There is also a mother with five threeweek-old kittens, who will be ready for adoption in about a month. Howe added that these cats are ideal for farm and barn residence. Laurie said there are still about a dozen cats to be caught, domesticated and fixed for good home placement. At present, the SPCA’s space for cats is completely full, and is unable to accept any cats until further space is created. “We’re packed solid,” Howe said. She said that the SPCA is running a new program. “We’re taking fewer cats, and giving them a better quality of life, rather than packing

Only four caribou survive From Page 4 Four died of unknown causes, and their bodies have been sent to the University of Calgary’s Faculty of Veterinary Medicine to determine cause of death. March’s caribou transfer was to be the first in a two-part relocation project, a last ditch attempt to save the endangered herd in the Kootenays. The efforts are mandated under the federal Species At Risk Act. Gordon said the cost of capture, transport, release and incidental costs of the March relocation was $134,000. That amount doesn’t include the GPS collars, which can be reused, and research. “Transplants are always risky. It’s certainly not the desired way to manage caribou,” he said. “It’s only one of the

management tools and a lot of the other management tools have been used in this area, including very significant habitat protection and management of human activities in that area. This is a critical intervention. It’s not something we embark on without serious reflection.” Gordon said it has not yet been determined whether another transplant will take place. “It’s safe to say we certainly wouldn’t be proceeding exactly as we did on this one. We would be applying what we have learnt through this transplant. “As unfortunate as these results are, we are learning a lot from it. It is hopefully going to benefit mountain caribou in the long run.”

them in.” The adoption process also seems to move along quicker this way. Howe added that the SPCA never euthanizes cats because of lack of space, contrary to what some people might believe. If anyone is interested in adopting cats or kittens from the great cat rescue of 2012, or a cat from the SPCA, call the SPCA at 250-4266751, or email ohgood@ (as in “Oh good, we caught another kitty!”).

The vanishing stuck-out thumb


any institutions and activities that we used to take for granted have been rendered extinct, or are well on their way to obsolescence. Many times this is due to the pressures of modern changing times, or the advent of new technologies. Sometimes, society as a whole decides that, you know, it just isn’t a good idea to do this any more. Consider this example: Between the existence of the so-called “Highway of Tears,” or an incident like the alleged carjacking near Yakh, and other suchlike horrors, the age-old pastime of hitchhiking will soon be dead as a doornail. I don’t want to get into the details of those above incidences; suffice it to say that if you’re a young woman trying to save a few bucks to get somewhere by hitching, then you’re absolutely crazy. If you’re a young man, don’t hold your breath waiting for a ride. The cultural perception has changed. Hitchhiking used to be so innocent. Even 25 years ago, it was as commonplace as can be. There was a joyous, small-town feel to it. You could hitchhike across Canada, meeting people and even making lifelong friends. Now, it is certainly arguable that hitchhiking is no more dangerous than it’s ever

been. Back in the 1950s, you could pick up someone who turned out to be a dangerous renegade. Or you could hop into someone’s car, and find yourself in great trouble. Then as now, the percentage of psychopaths on the road to honest, helpful folks is probably very, very small. But then again, kids don’t walk to school, or elsewhere away from their homes, like they used to. The perceptions have Barry changed, and it’s not all the media’s fault. Coulter For the record, I too have hitchhiked. I hated every second, waiting out there by the side of the road while cars whizzed by. And I didn’t even blame them for not stopping, although it was frustrating. But I just didn’t have that $20 for the bus. I’ve also picked up hitchhikers a time or two. Not an unpleasant experience, I suppose, but I don’t do it anymore. I just don’t feel like making the conversation. If someone appeared to be in trouble, of course I would stop to see if I could help. But instances like that recent alleged carjacking near here have probably queered that kind of deal for any would-be good samaritans. This summer past, I drove to Nelson, and was heading towards Salmo just as Shambhala — Canada’s biggest outdoor

electronic music festival — was breaking up. All along the highway, groups of youth were hunkered, thumbs stuck out, hitchhiking in packs. They looked tired, angry and burnt, with loads of gear, and there were dozens of them, all trying to get a free ride to Nelson. I did the simplest thing — I kept driving, as did the rest of the highway traffic that I could see. The clusters of hitchhikers lined the road for several miles, and the further along this gauntlet you ran, the angrier they looked. I will confess I felt guilty enough that after several miles of this I decided I would pick up the next solitary hitchhiker I saw. But by that time, I had passed by the whole lot of them, and did not see another. Sorry about that, all of you hitchhikers, but it seemed that stopping and letting several of you into my little car would have unnecessarily complicated my life, for however brief a time as that may have been. So I kept driving. Perhaps you should lobby the festival organizers for some manner of shuttle service for future years. Technology and media dominate our lives and our thinking to such a degree that the neighborliness is slowly fading from our lives. Forget about the free lunch — there’s no such thing as a free ride.

The mysterious murders of Clue



ou’ve played the board game. Maybe you’ve seen the movie, circa 1985. But you’re in for a real treat if you attend the Off Centre Players stage adaptation of Clue at Centre 64 in Kimberley. Director Joseph Pereira (who previously directed Don’t Dress for Dinner) has assembled a delightful cast of more than a dozen actors from Kimberley, with a few from Cranbrook thrown into the stew for good measure. Clue plays Wednesday, Oct. 17 through Saturday, Oct. 20, with curtain time at 7:30 p.m. nightly. There is an additional matinee performance Sunday, Oct. 21 at 2 p.m. With a clever two-room set that extends right into the seating area, the audience will feel like they’re right in the thick of this murder mystery. Or should we say multiple murder mystery, since there are more than a few bodies sprawled about before the curtain falls. The play opens with a foreboding soundtrack, but quickly devolves into funny. Very funny. Laugh-out-loud funny. There are lots of great one-liners and plenty of physical comedy too. If you think you might have trouble keeping the large cast of characters straight, here are a few, er, clues. Sioban Staplin as Miss Scarlett is dressed in, naturally, scarlet, which is appropriate, since she seems to run a house of ill repute. Jane Foreman as Mrs. Peacock wears a scarf and hat that resemble the feathers of a, you guessed it, peacock. On the other hand, Katherine Shuflita as Mrs. White is clad all in black, a reference to her role as the black widow. Thom McCaughey as Col. Mustard, Wayne Keiver as Professor Plum and Adam Tomlinson as Mr. Green all sport ties that match their monikers. Patrick Baranowski as Wadsworth the butler (mmm, did the butler do it?) and Elli Gillen as the fetching French maid Yvette have costumes that suit their professions. And Ray Gareau as Mr. Boddy sticks to a classic dress-for-dinner suit. Rounding out the cast (some taking on several small roles as well as doubling up as

NANAIMO, B.C. – British Columbia Premier Christy Clark took aim at Alberta Tuesday in an election-style speech where she boasted her province doesn’t need oil to be the country’s top economic generator. Speaking to a Vancouver Island economic summit, Clark said she’s set lofty goals for B.C.’s economy, which include turning the province into Canada’s No. 1 economy. She drew mild applause from the business crowd when she said B.C.’s job creation numbers are currently tops in Canada, ahead of Alberta, and B.C. has done it without oil revenues. “Fifty-seven thousand net new jobs in British Columbia, most of them are full-time,’’ said Clark about the Statistics

Their roles range from cop to cook, singing telegram girl to hippie evangelist, plus a stranded motorist. There are some truly strong performances from the seasoned actors in the cast, and great work, too, from the younger emerging talent. The plot of Clue essentially revolves around a blackmail scheme. A number of guests have been invited to a drinks and dinner party by a mysterious host. They are asked to use pseudonyms. But who is the blackmailer? What are the secrets that the various characters are trying to conceal? And, as the bodies pile up, audience members will be asking: Was it Col. Mustard? In the billiard room? With

a candlestick? Or could it be Mrs. Peacock? In the kitchen? With a lead pipe? Mind you, unlike the board game, there is more than one murder to solve here. There are also assorted inter-connections between the characters, which I won’t spoil by revealing here. Adding to the fun are secret passageways, much to-ing and fro-ing between the two rooms on stage (not to mention the half-a-dozen doors), and many things that go bump in the night. The action is set in the Washington, D.C., area against a backdrop of 1950s McCarthyism, which just might be a clue in itself. Personally, I’ve always been a sucker for a good murder mystery. When it’s leavened with comedy, like this production of Clue, it’s even better.

Canada yearly numbers. “We’re ahead of Alberta and we don’t even have oil. We’re doing well.’’ Clark said her government’s year-old jobs plan, which focuses on increasing trade with China and Asia and promoting mining and exploring innovations in technology and agrifoods, has resulted in growth. Clark said trade with China has increased by 25 per cent and moves to clear up massive permit and approval backlogs in the mining sector has resulted in a 20 per cent improvement. Part of Clark’s jobs plan includes opening eight new B.C. mines and upgrading nine others currently in operation by 2015. After her speech, Clark told reporters she wants British Columbians and Canadians to know that B.C. is ahead of Al-

berta when it comes to job growth. She said she expects her province’s employment efforts to be a deciding factor when British Columbian’s vote in the upcoming May election. Clark’s Liberals are currently trailing well behind the Opposition New Democrats in public opinion polls. “We’re used to, in Canada, having Alberta doing better than anyone else because they have oil, which is great for the country and for Alberta, but I think it’s significant for British Columbians to recognize that we are No. 1,’’ said Clark. “We are No. 1 in this country, and it should be a real source of pride that even without that great natural resource, and valuable natural resource they call oil, we’re still doing better than everybody else,’’ she said. “That’s quite a chal-

lenge we’ve overcome.’’ Clark said she’s enjoying taking pokes at Alberta when it comes to measuring economic progress. “It’s a good competition to have,’’ she said. Clark, whose Liberal government has often been criticized for paying lacklustre attention to Vancouver Island, said her government has supported the Island’s economic and growth ventures, including airport and post-secondary education investments in Nanaimo and health-care in the Courtenay and Campbell River areas. Opposition New Democrat Leonard Krog, who holds one of the two seats in Nanaimo, said Clark didn’t make one new announcement during the speech, something the business leaders there will remember.

How to plan your business’s growth Beat the competition with disciplined expansion BDC-Say you have a successful small business. You have a few employees, and things are going fine. If you’re like many entrepreneurs, you may never take time to sit down and think about your future growth—how to take your company to the next level in a smart, disciplined way. But growth is an issue many business owners ignore at their peril. In fact, it might just be one of the most important issues facing them as

entrepreneurs. “If you decide not to grow, you may be paving a path to failure,” says Patrick Latour, Senior Vice President, Financing and Consulting at the Business Development Bank of Canada. “If you don’t grow, your competitors will, and that will put pressure on you.” The good news, Latour says, is that business owners can create a road map to guide them and reduce their risk as they grow their

enterprise. The road map can help them find more growth opportunities and avoid common mistakes, like failing to delegate responsibility to employees (see below). Need a Plan To develop your road map, start by committing time to outlining a plan for your growth, Latour says. It should include a few important basics: A clear picture of your business’s current strengths, weaknesses and opportunities A vision for where you want your company to be in the next three to five years An action plan to achieve your vision (Who will do what and by when) Your growth plan could be anything from a rough, informal sketch to a fullblown, highly detailed strategic plan, including everything from a mission statement to scenario planning and financial forecasts.

Faster than a giant turtle - Regional business initiative completes data collection phase With Small Business Week upon us, the Kootenay Rockies Innovation Council (KRIC) and the Kootenay Association for Science and Technology (KAST) are pleased to announce the completion of the data collection phase of a region-wide Business Retention and Expansion (BRE) initiative, focused on manufacturing and technology-related business in the Kootenays. Business Retention and Expansion, or BRE, is an actionoriented and community-based approach to business and economic development. This sector-specific BRE is a key component of the two-year Columbia Basin Trust MATS (Manufacturing and Technology Sector) initiative, delivered by KAST and KRIC. MATS supports economic diversification and development in the Columbia Basin, with a focus on the manufacturing and technology sectors. Over six months, representatives of the program interviewed more than 180 manufacturing and technology-related businesses across the Kootenays. The data will be made available to municipalities, economic development organizations and educational institutions as a summary report

towards the end of year. Said Andrew Zwicker, who coordinated the BRE for KAST, “We spoke to businesses in the entire value chain of the manufacturing and tech sectors. This data will help us develop an understanding of these sectors, for businesses and for the knowledge workers in our region. It will also help us to specifically target programming and resources where they can be most effective.” While the official numbers have yet to come in, some obvious trends have already emerged. Among them are the rise of subcontracting, the recognition that there’s room for growth and more competition, and that there’s a need for skilled technology workers in a variety of areas: including networking, web development, engineering and technologists. Competition with Alberta and BC’s Lower Mainland can make it difficult for local businesses to attract top talent based purely on salary, but Kootenay entrepreneurs understand that the lifestyle benefits offer a compelling perk and as a result they work with key staff to develop flexible schedules that modern workers are beginning to demand. “The interviews

Ice forward returns after three-game suspension TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice forward Jon Martin is a changed man. Or maybe not, because he still doesn’t know what got him suspended. The feisty 17-yearold winger was part of a line brawl that erupted two weeks ago during a tilt against the Lethbridge Hurricanes. The fracas started when teammate Brock Montgomery took a high stick to the face behind the opposing team’s net. The overage forward hunched over and slowly skated back to the Ice bench, but took exception to some chatter from the Lethbridge side and reached across the boards to grab the offender.

Jon Martin That set off a line brawl on the ice as players, in the heat of battle, paired up and started swinging. A total of six fighting majors and three roughing minors were handed out after all the dust settled. The WHL officially handed down Martin’s three-game suspension on Oct. 1st for “actions of

player versus Lethbridge on September 29th” being the official explanation on the WHL’s discipline webpage. “[WHL] didn’t say a word to me, I still don’t know why I got suspended, they still haven’t said anything,” said Martin. “Coach just came in and said I was suspended for three games and that was the end of it, so nothing I could do.” The Hurricanes didn’t escape unscathed; forward Brady Ramsey was suspended for five games, and will return to the ice for Wednesday’s tilt against the Wheat Kings in Lethbridge. Martin’s last game in the press box was during Kootenay’s 4-3 win against the Blades, but he returned to the lineup to lend a hand in the 1-0 shutout of the Edmonton Oil Kings on Sunday. That victory was pretty sweet, he said. “It feels great, we hadn’t beat them at all last year,” said Martin. “It was real sweet, for sure, and good to be a part of it, too. “A good first game to be back.” The Ice have a tripleheader this weekend, starting with a quick jaunt to Red Deer on Friday, followed by contests with Kamloops on Saturday and the Rebels again on Sunday at Western Financial Place.

Dynamiters topple Rockies 5-4 TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters survived a third period scare to hold their lead against the Columbia Valley Rockies, defeating their divisional rivals 5-4 on Tuesday night at the Civic Centre. The Nitros had scored five goals after two periods, but the Rockies responded with three markers in the final frame to come within one goal of tying up the affair. New pickup Bryce Halverson stood in net

for the Dynamiters, turning away 32 pucks, while Stewart Pratt saved 26 shots for the Rockies. Sam Nigg opened the scoring for the Nitros near the 12-minute mark of the first period, getting a tip on a shot from the point. Taylor McDowell had a half-breakaway, but Pratt made the stop, while Halverson robbed Rockies forward Racey Red Crow, who found himself in the slot all alone with the puck.

Dynamiters in the second period, sniping the top corner during a power play, but Columbia Valley soon responded when Kellen Marchand put his team on the scoreboard. A flurry of Dynamiter goals then gave the team a seemingly insurmountable lead. Connor Kutzner restored the two-goal lead, picking up the garbage in front of the net, and Connor Tetlock further increased the lead when he got his own rebound off a shot at the back door-

step. Adam Hodge wristed the puck into the net from the top of the faceoff circle on another power play to give the Nitros a 5-1 lead going into the final period. That’s when the wheels fell off a bit. Marchand notched his second of the game when he got his stick on a shot that beat Halverson, while Jake Fardoe shovelled the puck into the net off a scramble halfway through the frame.

However, the Nitros were able to hold off the Rockies with an extra attacker out on the ice to preserve the win. “I thought we had a really good second, not a bad first, but we seemed to shut down a little bit in the third, there and against another team, that could be the difference in a game between winning and losing,” said Nitro assistant coach Jordan Foreman.

aARIES (March 21-April 19) Reach out to others. Those who are wise seek feedback in order to test out an idea. During this process, an even better idea might pop up. Do not allow your ego to get involved if someone has sounder concepts than you; instead, welcome them. Brainstorm away! Tonight: Your instincts could mislead you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Relate to others directly, and know what it is that you desire. Friends and/or loved ones might think they know what they want, but in reality, their ideas come across garbled. If they allow it, you will need to help these individuals organize their thoughts in a way that makes more sense. Tonight: The only answer is “yes.” GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Defer to others, and make it a point to let them know that you trust them to make good choices. Then step back and observe. You might be clearing up a disagreement or power play now that they can see what it is like to run the show. To-

night: Say“yes”to someone. CANCER (June 21-July 22) All work and no play is not a healthy lifestyle. More than other signs, you have a tendency to swing from one emotional extreme to the other. You need to maintain a healthy amount of physical activity, as that is the key to keeping your stress level down. You might feel uneasy about an upcoming trip or a call coming in. Tonight: Work on getting physical. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You often exude confidence, yet right now, you are working on a faulty premise for which you do not have all the facts. It is likely that you could be hearing only what you want to hear without realizing it. Center yourself, and go back over an important decision in your mind. Tonight: Happy at home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Listen to news from someone who has easy access to you. You’ll want to rethink a decision involving a partner. You might not be seeing the whole picture or the people involved clearly. You can only come from your own perspective. Let a friend play devil’s advocate. Tonight: Hang out with your pals.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) News heads your way that involves your finances or an offer pertaining to money. Though the other person might have good intentions, there could be a last-minute hassle or problem that arises. Do not spend funds before you get them. Tonight: Do your thing. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) You enjoy the dreamlike mood you are in, yet you might not be as realistic as you would like to be. Consider the possibility that a risk could backfire and leave you feeling unhappy. Use your dreams as a starting point to build from, but use logic to guide you. Tonight: Treat yourself on the way home. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Use your energy in the most effective way you can. The Moon highlights you, which makes nearly anything possible. You would be well advised to try to deal with everything except a domestic or property-related matter. You could have a last-minute problem. Tonight: Do absolutely what you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Allow yourself to loosen up more. If you have an idea or a wish that

has been floating around in your mind, bring it forth now. Come up with a plan for how you can make it a reality. Talk to a trusted friend who might be unusually resourceful. Tonight: You might want some downtime. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Emphasize what you want. A meeting could be particularly important in completing a project. You might have more supportive friends than you realize. Look around and ask for some feedback. Use caution with your money, and refuse to make any agreements today. Tonight: Where the crowds are. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Be discreet, especially if you are confused right now. How you handle a difficult situation could change given some time. Nevertheless, you have to take the lead on a project, like it or not. Do not make any over-the-top comments involving commitment. Tonight: Into the wee hours. BORN TODAY Rapper Eminem (1972), daredevil Evel Knievel (1938), musician Ziggy Marley (1968) ***

Rhymes Rhymeswith withOrange Orange

By ByHillary HillaryB. B.Price Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My husband’s only sibling is his 65-year-old brother, “Larry.” Larry’s mother spoiled him rotten. To say he’s lazy is an understatement. He does nothing to help himself. He was fortunate enough to win a local election when he ran unopposed, and he held that office for 30 years. I doubt if he put in 20 hours a month. Two years ago, Larry retired, drawing a pension and Social Security. He says he can hardly make it. He inherited his mother’s home and land and has done nothing to tend it. He has a few cows, but he doesn’t care for them. They got out onto his neighbor’s land, and they issued a complaint. Now they don’t speak. His mother’s house is falling down around him. He was forced to put on a new roof because the leaking caused the ceilings to fall in. There is no heat or air conditioning in the house. He has not had a working indoor toilet for 20 years. You cannot open the windows because of all the junk in the house. Years ago, my husband said he’d repair the heater if Larry would clean up the mess around it, but he hasn’t touched a thing. He uses an electric blanket for warmth. He has no water because when the pipes froze two years ago, he cut off the water to the house and hooked up a hose to an outside faucet. He hasn’t cut his hair since he retired, and he seldom shaves. It makes us sick to look at him. We have offered to help Larry, but we expect him to put in some effort. He often tells us he should have taken our advice, but whenever we talk to him, he stares and ignores us. I think he’s waiting for someone to take care of him while he sits and smokes his cigarettes. We’re afraid to take on the job of caring for him because then he’d expect us to do it forever. How do we handle this? -- The Sister-in-Law Dear Sister-in-Law: Larry sounds like a hoarder. Along with the lack of personal grooming, it seems more like depression or mental illness than sheer laziness. This may not make it easier to deal with, but it could change your response. Please contact the International OCD Foundation ( for information and help. Dear Annie: What is proper etiquette for gift giving and receiving? Is it rude to say, “Don’t buy me presents. I don’t want anybody else picking out my things. Just give me money, and I will do my own shopping”? That takes all the pleasure out of giving for me, plus it sounds more like extortion. If it is proper etiquette, how much should one give? Society has changed so much in the past 50 years that I no longer know if this is someone raised without manners or if it’s OK to ask for money. -- Need To Know Dear Need: It is still poor manners to tell someone that you expect a present and that they should give you money so you can buy it yourself. You are under no obligation to follow these instructions. If you choose to give money (or any gift), how much you spend is entirely up to you. Dear Annie: “Florida Greetings” complained about the “high cost” of a postage stamp to justify emailing instead of writing. How petty. With the price of gas around $4, a loaf of bread more than $2 and a gallon of milk at least $3, a mere 45 cents may be the best bargain in town. Even with a fixed income, I manage to send notes to others who may have a brighter day because they found something other than bills and junk mail in their mailbox. When I can send something to California for less than half a dollar, I am grateful. -- Still Writing in Indiana Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Controversial private zoo in Alta gets new operating permit C anadian Press

THREE HILLS, Alta. _ The Alberta government has issued a new operating permit to a roadside zoo that was to be shut down over animal care concerns. The GuZoo animal farm near Three Hills was ordered closed in the spring of 2011 based on a review that outlined problems with how the zoo was being run. But the Gustafson family, which owns GuZoo, appealed and a judge allowed the zoo to keep operating under strict conditions while the case went

through the courts. Last week, the province met with the Gustafsons and decided that the zoo can stay in business as long as it meets certain conditions. The animal welfare group Zoocheck Canada says in a release that it is unbelievable that GuZoo is being allowed to stay open given its track record. Alberta government spokeswoman Jessica Potter says an inspection of the zoo’s operations in July showed no problems with the health or condition of the

animals. Bill Gustafson said some conditions that had been placed on the zoo in 2011 have been lifted “such as having to get rid of the animals and having to ask before we bring something in for feed or whatever. “And we can do petting zoos again with our domestic animals without having to get permission to do that.’’ The Gustafsons have operated the zoo for more than 20 years. It has about 400 animals that include tigers, lions, bears and elk.

Rules that GuZoo must still follow include separate enclosures for feeding wild animals and completing renovations to a fence around the farm’s perimeter. GuZoo has been the focus of animal abuse concerns since it first opened in 1990. The most recent public outcry came in March 2011 when pictures that included one of a goat with its face covered in blood were posted on a Facebook page. The Gustafsons have said that many of the concerns were dealt with.

Do you recognize this man? He played for the Kimberley Royals, but little else is known, and local historian Skip Fennessy would like to identify him. Please call 250-426-3679.

Culled sled dogs to be buried in Penticton pet cemetery C anadian Press

VANCOUVER _ Dozens of sled dogs that were slaughtered after the Vancouver Olympics in an animal cruelty case that made international headlines are getting a proper burial. The B.C. Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says the 56 dogs that were killed in Whistler, B.C. in winter 2010 will be laid to rest on Nov. 2.

The service will be held at the SPCA pet cemetery near Penticton, in the southern Interior, which spokeswoman Marcie Moriarty says was chosen because of its beauty and because the case touched people around the province. The cull set off a massive animal-cruelty investigation into the former general manager of Howling Dog Tours, Robert Faw-

cett, who pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary pain and suffering to the animals in August. Investigators dug up the dogs’ bodies from a mass grave near the ski resort to gather forensic evidence to support the charge, and the remains were handled carefully for a future burial. Fawcett will be sentenced in late November.

Air Canada flight helps locate yacht off Australian coast C anadian Press

SYDNEY, Australia _ Air  Canada  is being credited with helping rescue officials pinpoint the location of a yacht in trouble off the coast of Australia. A solo yachtsman left Pittwater, on Sydney’s northern beaches, two weeks ago heading for Eden on the New South Wales south coast. Australian media reported an emergency beacon was activated early Tuesday with the man reporting that his boat had been drifting away from land since last week. Because of the remote location, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority asked two airliners passing over the man’s GPS position

to help confirm his whereabouts. An Air  Canada  Boeing 777 flying to Sydney from Vancouver subsequently diverted from its course to check on the distressed yacht about 435 kilometres east of Sydney. An Air New Zealand A320, heading to Sydney from New Zealand also went off course to locate the yacht. Air  Canada  said its plane swooped down at about 1,200 metres while the crew peered out using binoculars borrowed from a passenger. Travellers on board the aircraft were also asked to keep watch, the airline said. They were drawn to the yacht’s location by light shining off a mir-

ror. “They did spot the boat and then they passed over it just to let the guy know that they had seen him,’’ said spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick. “Everybody on board was really happy and excited by the outcome,’’ even though it delayed the flight by roughly 90 minutes, he said. With the boat’s location confirmed, a police vessel was dispatched to the demasted yacht, which was running low on fuel and drifting further out to sea. A maritime safety official said police would make a judgment call when they arrived as to whether the man needed to abandon ship.
