The Doug Lundquist, temperature through the Environment week is expected to stay Canada below 0 C, but Lundquist said by Sunday the valley bottom will warm up to 8 C or 9 C, effectively melting all the gathered flurries. The snowcapped Rockies aren’t going anywhere, though. “In the mountains, winter is here to stay,” he said. Lundquist said the storm that blew into the area overnight Monday certainly wasn’t unusual for this time a year. “It’s that season where there’s snow starting to accumulate,” he said. But still, those residents that found themselves scrambling to get the snow shovels out or the snow tires on the car are not alone. Lundquist suspects the lingering summer had many not thinking about winter until it literally hit the area hard. “I think it caught us somewhat off guard,” he said. Based out of Kelowna, Lundquist said they expect their first dump of snow in mid-November, but higher up in the Rockies in Cranbrook winter can be expected several weeks earlier.

OTTAWA _ A Senate committee says Ottawa should approve a cull of 70,000 seals over four years in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence in a controversial bid to help the recovery of cod stocks. The committee has spent almost a year studying a federal

proposal to slaughter 70 per cent of the grey seals in the area, a plan critics say has been driven by politics, not science. Acting Fisheries Minister Gail Shea is under pressure from the fishing industry to do something about the stalled cod recovery in the Gulf, where there’s indirect scientific evi-

dence suggesting hungry grey seals are to blame. The cod in the area are on the verge of disappearing even though large-scale commercial fishing has been banned there since the early 1990s. However, leading biologists and animal welfare groups have condemned the proposal,

saying there’s no scientific evidence to suggest a cull would work. A group of scientists at Dalhousie University in Halifax issued an open letter last year that said a cull could produce unintended consequences, including further depletion of the cod stocks.

Wildsight works with council Cranbrook city council supports environmental initiatives brought forward by local organization Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Cranbrook city council has pledged support for a number of Wildsight initiatives. Two representatives of the environmental organization made a presentation to council on Monday, October 22, which reminded mayor and councillors what Wildsight does, who they are, and what they have achieved. Robyn Duncan and Helen Sander, Wildsight program managers, also ironed out some myths and misconceptions about the group. “We want to do a lot more work with you and that is why we have come in this evening,” said Sander. “We would like to receive some guidance on what the process would be to start a dialogue to work together with you to promote sustainability in Cranbrook.” At the Monday meeting, Wildsight also asked for council’s support of a new program it hopes to initiate: the Cranbrook Clean Bin Project. “The goal of the project is to reduce the volume of waste going into the landfill and to promote education both among students and in the community on ways to reduce waste,” said Sander. Wildsight will seek funding from the Columbia Basin Trust’s Environmental Initiatives Projects program for its planned 2013 project. The Clean Bin Project is inspired by a Vancouver couple who went on a year-long challenge to create as little waste as possible. They made a film about their experience and travelled across Canada promoting the idea, including a visit to Kimberley. “It’s a very moving but lighthearted film. A young couple decided they just don’t want to be producing garbage

anymore,” said Sander. “It’s a friendly way and it moved a lot of people. It makes an emotional impact on people.” After the visit, 10 families in Kimberley decided to try the challenge themselves for one month. At the end of the month, through recycling and composting their waste, the winning family managed to fit their garbage into one sandwich bag. If Wildsight is successful in obtaining funding from CBT, the Cranbrook Clean Bin Project would bring in the Vancouver couple who started the initiative and show the film at schools, community meetings and public screenings, and set up a public challenge for Cranbrook residents. The project would also promote home composting. Cranbrook council decided to support the grant application because the project fits into the city’s recent decision to decrease the weekly bag limit for garbage pick-up from five bags to three per household. “I followed the Clean Bin Project as it went along in Kimberley and it sounded like a real challenge. That’s something I would like to support here in Cranbrook,” said Councillor Sharon Cross. “Given that there are already concerns about our landfill, I think a project like this would really be a huge awareness-raising project and I’m in support of that.” Also on Monday, council agreed to take part in Wildsight’s 2013 Wood Stove Exchange Program. During the program’s eligibility period, the city will waive the $50 inspection fee if a Cranbrook home installs a new wood stove. See future issues of The Townsman for more information on the Wood Stove Exchange Program.

Twelve-dollar increase to water fees coming Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Water user rates for Cranbrook residents will go up starting January 1. Council voted at the regular meeting on Monday, October 22, to increase monthly water user rates from $18 to $19 per month. “That one dollar increase will generate close to $125,000 more in revenue, and our forecasted total water user fee revenues for 2013 is $2,176,611,” said Mayor Wayne Stetski.

The increase is likely to be followed by another one-dollar monthly increase in 2014, according to the city’s Five Year Financial Plan approved earlier this year. “We do this through our budget discussions. This would have been discussed at last year’s budget time, so we need to implement it January 1. The budget discussion is done almost a year in advance,” explained chief administrative officer Wayne Staudt.

Kimberley Alpine Resort got a head start on the season Monday with a healthy dump of snow even at the base of the hill.

Nine centimetres of snow measured Monday night Continued from page 1 The white stuff doesn’t often remain for long before it melts and then falls again, however. “Cranbrook’s usually a few weeks early,” he said. “It usually comes or goes.” For those holding off on pull-

ing out the winter boots, Lundquist said it’s time to quit procrastinating. “It’s a really good early season reminder to get ready,” he said. Those set to travel in the coming weeks are urged to get their vehicles prepped and properly equipped with winter tires.

The Canadian Rockies International Airport reported nine centimetres of snow at 6 a.m. Tuesday morning. Lundquist said that number could vary across the city and the higher mountainous areas. A snowfall warning had been rescinded by morning.

People with developmental disabilities not alone: MLAs Continued from page 1 For 2012-2013, CLBC’s total operating budget, which includes operating contributions from the B.C. government, is $748 million to assist more than 14,200 adults. CLBC’s services are voluntary and are complemented by services from other B.C. ministries and agencies including income support, housing and health supports. Minister Stilwell said the purpose of her October visit is to raise awareness of people with developmental disabilities, who make valuable contributions to society. “And they want to,” added Stilwell. “That’s an important part of the supports and services. On one hand we want to make sure they have support for their daily living activities that they may need help with. At the same time,

we want to help encourage and empower them to work when they can and want to, but also participate in the community in the same way that able persons are able to.” She observed that the support network for adults with developmental disabilities is centred around each individual. “Throughout B.C. what I see is there is a network of supports that’s really remarkable in terms of both their philosophy and how they try to make each person the centre of the decisions, the centre of aids, the centre of supports, so each person has a plan for their life just like you and I and is figuring out how to get to that plan.” Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett accompanied Minister Stilwell on her visit to Cranbrook. “My main purpose is to make sure that parents, providers and disabled British Columbians

know they are not all by themselves way out here in the East Kootenay and Victoria doesn’t know where they are and what’s happening,” said Bennett. “So having the Minister here and taking a look at what we have here is good for the Minister, it’s good for us as the government, but also it’s a comfort to the people I just mentioned.”

Police nab impaired driver Townsman Staff

RCMP are asking the public to keep up the good work after someone reported an impaired driver who was consequently taken off the road this past weekend. On Sunday, October 21 in the early morning hours, a green pickup truck was observed driving erratically by another motorist who called police and reported their observations, a vehicle description and the last known direction of travel. Members of the Cranbrook RCMP responded and stopped the suspect vehicle on Highway 95A near the McPhee Bridge. The driver was determined to be intoxicated by alcohol and was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) and a 30-day vehicle impoundment. The Cranbrook RCMP would like to thank the person who called in the complaint and to encourage the motoring public to call police when they witness erratic driving they suspect may be caused by impairment by alcohol or drugs. It helps the police to provide a vehicle description (including a licence plate, when possible), and a direction of travel.

Resident catches thief outside her own home Townsman Staff

A Cranbrook resident reported a break and enter when she spotted the thief leaving her house with her television as she returned home. On Saturday, October 20 in the morning, a local resident was returning to her home and noted a vehicle following behind her so she drove around the block. When the resident came back to her home, she saw the same green GMC truck parked in her driveway with an unknown male walking from her backyard, carrying a large screen TV. The resident immediately pulled over while watching the suspect and called police. The resident was able to provide the RCMP with a good description of the vehicle including the licence plate and a good description of the suspect. It was determined that the truck had been reported stolen out of Golden earlier in the day.  On October 21, the suspect vehicle was located by members of the Vernon RCMP at which time they arrested the suspect and recovered the vehicle. A 31-year-old Cranbrook male remains in custody in Vernon where he will be appearing in provincial court on Break, Enter and Theft and Possession of Stolen Property charges. If anyone has any additional information about this or any other crime they can call the Cranbrook RCMP at 250-489-3471 or East Kooteney Crimestoppers (1-800-222-TIPS).  You can also “Google” Cranbrook Crimestoppers and leave a webtip.


Patricia Whalen, EK Children First Manager, accepts the final cheque from Manager Len Steenson, for the Save On Points For Kids fundraiser held for the Kootenay Child Development Centre. Approximately $1,300 was raised and the KCDC is grateful to the staff at Save On Foods for all of their hard work on this fundraiser.

Sunrise Rotary fights to end polio worldwide Submitted

In honour of World Polio Day, which is widely recognized on October 24, the Sunrise Rotary Club of Cranbrook is sponsoring two events as part of Rotary International’s 26-year mission to eradicate polio, the crippling childhood disease. On Wednesday, October 24, members of Sunrise Rotary will be at the Tamarack Mall from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. raising awareness and funds for the global push to end polio. On Friday, October 26, Sunrise Rotarians will be at the Kootenay Ice home game at the 2nd Street entrance from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. prior to the game. Over the past two years, Cranbrook’s Sunrise Rotary Club has raised more than $10,000 for polio erad-

Red Cross ready to boost aid for B.C. emergencies C anadian Press

Red Cross teams will have B.C.’s back, should a major earthquake strike the West Coast and local emergency workers get overwhelmed. The province has signed a formal agreement with the agency that ensures its Canadian arm is regularly in-

volved in planning for a natural disaster. The partnership will include ensuring Red Cross Emergency Response Units – trained personnel and equipment that can be deployed within two days – will be ready to assist B.C. in the event of a major catastrophe.

John Byrne, of the Canadian Red Cross, says up to 200 people from Canada could be called on first if a large quake hits, then teams from the U.S. and abroad would be called. Attorney General Shirley Bond says the partnership will not cost more.

ication through fundraisers such as Pedal for Polio and individual member donations. As part of Rotary’s most recent campaign to match a $355 million challenge grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation with $200 million by June 2012, the humanitarian service organization is close to reaching its goal, with more than $180 million raised to date. The funding will provide critical support to polio eradication activities in parts of Africa and South Asia. Since 1985, Rotary has contributed more than $1 billion and countless volunteer hours to the protection of more than two billion children in 122 countries. The disease remains endemic in four countries – Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan – although other countries remain at risk for imported cases. A highly infectious disease, polio causes paralysis and is sometimes fatal.  As there is no cure, the best protection is prevention. For as little as 60 cents worth of vaccine, a child can be protected against this crippling disease for life. After an international investment of more than $8 billion, and the successful engagement of more than 200 countries and 20 million volunteers, polio could be the first

human disease of the 21st century to be eradicated. The Global Polio Eradication Initiative is spearheaded by the World Health Organization, Rotary International, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). It includes the support of governments and private sector donors. Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian

service and help to build goodwill and peace in the world. It is comprised of 1.2 million members working in more than 34,000 clubs in 200 countries and

geographic regions. Rotary invites the public to support the polio eradication initiative by visiting or

David Keith sees it the same way. “You’re selling this fuel, and they’re burning it, putting carbon in the air, but then you’re recapturing the same amount of carbon and selling it to them again. That’s a business model that could conceivably take a whack at the global transportation market, which is the hardest part of the climate problem to attack.” Maybe Harrison’s process will not win the race to capture that market. Maybe the cheaper option will be to grow green algae in waste water or salt water, crush it to extract the oil from it, and then refine the oil into petrol, diesel and so on. (Exxon-Mobil is currently spending about $100 million a year to develop that process.) But one way or another, the petrol we put in our vehicles in 25 years’ time will probably not come out of the ground. An entire industry employing millions of people, and the national budgets of entire countries, and much of the military planning by the world’s great powers, all rest on the assumption that this will never happen. Of course it will. The pressure to cut greenhouse gas emissions will grow as the temperature rises, and the desire for “energy independence” will only get stronger as oil price rises. Back in the 1890s, it was still unclear whether the new “horseless carriages” would ultimately be powered mainly by petrol, steam or electricity. But it was already clear to those with any understanding of the interactions between markets and technology that the day of the horse-and-buggy was over, and the smart money was already getting out of buggy whips.

Presidential debate Fox’s most watched show C anadian Press

NEW YORK _ The third debate between President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney stands as the mostwatched telecast ever on Fox News Channel. The Nielsen company said Tuesday that an estimated 11.5

million people watched Obama and Romney tussle Monday night on foreign policy on Fox. The network’s previous record was the 11.1 million who watched the second presidential debate last week and the Joe Biden-Sarah Palin vicepresidential debate in 2008.

Nielsen did not immediately have an estimate on the total viewership for the debate on all the networks that showed it. The debate ran in competition with Game 7 of baseball’s National League Championship series and a Monday Night Football game.

By the way... Mike Redfern’s Eye on Entertainment will appear in the Friday, October 26 issue of the Cranbrook Daily Townsman. Stay tuned for the most complete listing of Cranbrook and Kimberley events.

NHL speaking directly to players about latest offer CHRIS JOHNSTON Canadian Press

TORONTO — Distrust continues to creep into the NHL’s stalled labour negotiations. The NHL Players’ Association was questioning the league’s motives after news surfaced Tuesday that team owners and general managers were given a 48-hour window last week to speak with players about the NHL’s latest contract offer. “Most owners are not allowed to attend bargaining meetings,’’ said Steve Fehr, the NHLPA’s special counsel. “No owners are allowed to speak to the media about the bargaining. It is interesting that they are secretly unleashed to talk to the players about the meetings the players can attend, but the owners cannot.’’ The window was granted at the same time the NHL took the unusual step of publishing its entire proposal on its website last Wednesday. Team employees were told they could answer

questions about the offer from players until 11:59 p.m. last Friday. “Players were contacting club personnel to inquire about our proposal,’’ said deputy commissioner Bill Daly. “We gave them a limited window in which to respond to those inquiries.’’ In a lengthy internal memo obtained by The Canadian Press, the NHL stated clearly that the discussions had to be limited to the contents of the proposal. It also provided examples of questions that shouldn’t be asked of players and noted that any violation would be subject to NHL By-Law 17.17, which gives commissioner Gary Bettman the power to levy fines up to US$250,000. “You may not ask (a player) what he or others have in mind,’’ the memo read. “If he volunteers what he has in mind you should not respond positively or negatively or ask any questions but instead refer him to the NHLPA.”

Blazers sniper leads WHL scoring race TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

JC Lipon is at the top of his game. He’s also on top of the WHL scoring race. The wily forward added four points to his campaign on Saturday night when the Kamloops Blazers rolled through Cranbrook, earning a 6-3 victory against the Kootenay Ice along the way. Not only does Lipon lead the league with 32 points, his linemates— not just teammates—are second and third, respectively, as Colin Smith and Tim Bozon are hot on his heels, while another teammate, Brendan Ranford, is fourth overall. Those four Blazers collectively have 102 points in 13 games this year, as Kamloops is still undefeated in regulation (12-0-0-1) and is the top ranked club in the CHL. “It’s definitely exciting, not losing yet,” said Lipon. “We’re just playing good hockey and when we get a lead, we’re shutting it down and playing smart.”

Not that the Blazers haven’t had some scares. Kamloops went to a shootout against the Edmonton Oil Kings last week, as Lipon scored a late shorthanded goal in the third period to force overtime. Their following game against the Lethbridge Hurricanes was a tight affair, as Kamloops saw a three-goal lead evaporate in the final frame. Whether through luck or skill, the Blazers seem to have momentum and confidence on their side, while the pairing of Bozon, Smith and Lipon has been devastating to any opposition Kamloops has faced. Bozon, 18, was the Western Conference nominee for Rookie of the Year last year, while Smith and Lipon have played together since they were 16 years old. “Last year was the first full year we played together and it was really exciting,” said Lipon. “We built good friendships and on the ice, it seemed to work out and it’s just carried on to this year.”

While their ability to score has been a big factor in winning—they lead the league in the Goals For category—the work of netminder Cole Cheveldave has contributed to their success. Cheveldave, 19, is the second-ranked goaltender in the WHL with a 2.06 goals against average and a 0.924 save percentage. But one of those intangibles have also been a factor to the Blazers’ success, according to Lipon. “The refusal to lose,” he said. “No one likes losing and we’re just finding our way right now, whether on the power play or five-onfive.” Lipon has currently tallied 13 goals and 19 assists, which puts him atop the WHL for points. Last year, he collected 65 points in his second full year in the league. Needless to say, leading the league is a pleasant surprise, even if it wasn’t what he was expecting. “My goal is just be on the first page and the main thing is to win as a

team and we’re doing that right now and that’s what feels good,” said Lipon. The Prince Albert Raiders (8-3-0-2) and the Portland Winterhawks (8-3-1-0) are the only other WHL teams in the top-10 of the CHL rankings, at seventh and eighth respectively. Despite all their success so far this season,

Lipon said the team can’t let their wining record get to their heads. “The main thing is you got to start everyday at zero and forget about what you’ve done,” Lipon said. “We got to expect that every team is going to give us their best because we’re up there, they’re chasing us. “It’s a challenge but our team can do it.”

WHL announces coaching staff for Subway Super Series The WHL has named the coaching staff for the upcoming Subway Super Series as a team representing each of the three leagues in the CHL faces a junior squad of Russian players. Spokane Chiefs’ head coach Don Nachbaur will lead Team WHL for both games in Vancouver and Victoria, while Edmonton Oil Kings head coach Derek Laxdal will serve as his assistant. Don Hay, the bench boss for the Vancouver Giants, will join as an assistant during Vancouver’s game, while Dave Lowry, who leads the Victoria Royals, will join Nachbaur and Laxdal for Victoria’s game. The Subway Super Series is billed as an identification event for the IIHF World Junior Championship, a tournament that showcases the best junior hockey players in the world representing their countries. The WHL will announce the roster for Team WHL on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012. Trevor Crawley

Posey backstops Giants’ trip back to World Series JOSH DUBOW Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — On a team known for stellar pitching, bushy beards and quirky personalities, the unquestioned leader of the San Francisco Giants is their understated catcher, Buster Posey. From his prowess behind the plate, shepherding the staff through its ups and downs, to the bat that won the National League batting title, Posey is the biggest reason the Giants are back in the World Series for the second time in his three big league seasons. “I’d hate to think where we would be without him,’’ manager Bruce Bochy said. ``The numbers, they speak for themselves. But also his leadership on this club. We saw what life was without him last year. ... I don’t know a player that’s made a bigger impact on a club than what

he has on our club. He’s just a tremendous talent. We’re lucky to have him.’’ Posey has returned from a horrific, seasonending injury in 2011 to the top of the sport this year: starting All-Star catcher, batting champion, likely NL Most Valuable Player and World Series trip. It’s a remarkable story that Posey even made it back on the field this year, much less performed the way he did. It was his devastating injury that derailed the Giants’ repeat hopes a year ago and led many to question whether Posey should ever catch again. In May 2011, Posey broke a bone in his left leg and tore three ankle ligaments when bowled over at the plate by the Florida Marlins’ Scott Cousins. “I was excited just to be back on the field at the start of the season,’’

Posey said Tuesday. “I definitely appreciate this year just as much if not more. When I was here in 2010 it seemed like everything happened really, really fast. This year I had the chance to understand the difficulty of a long season and the ups and

downs you have over the course of the year. It’s something you want to enjoy while you’re doing it and soak up every minute of it.’’ San Francisco never really recovered from that blow and was unable to make it back to the post-season last year

without its star catcher. But his presence at the start of spring training this year set the tone for the entire season in San Francisco. He batted .336 to become the first catcher to win the NL batting title since the Boston Braves’ Ernie Lombardi in 1942.

Detroit Tigers get plenty of time to prepare for World Series BEN WALKER Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Jim Leyland and the Detroit Tigers found out the hard way that rest means rust in the World Series. Six years ago, their last Series appearance, they lounged around for nearly a week before getting wiped out by St. Louis. This time, while once again waiting for the National League opponent to be decided, they

stayed busy by working on bunts, playing against their instructional league team and letting ace Justin Verlander throw to hitters. “Well, we just tried to come up with something,’’ Leyland said Tuesday. “It wasn’t like in 2006, where some people would indicate we sat around happy to get there, not doing anything, eating bon-bons.’’ “That wasn’t the case. We ran into bad weather problems in

Detroit, so we were really handicapped,’’ the manager said. “So this time we’ve done some things to try to keep us from being idle for four or five days. I definitely think it affected the last World Series.’’ Verlander will start Game 1 on Wednesday night against Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants, fresh off another stirring comeback and a Game 7 win Monday night over the Cardinals.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might be unusually quiet, as you are very much in your head. Strong feelings tend to permeate your day and drive your actions. You might feel a need to sort through the financial benefits of making one decision over another. You need to handle a boss directly. Tonight: Not to be found. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Zero in on what you want while timing is working in your favor. A friend or a meeting inspires you to be more open about making a dream a reality. You have a quality that encourages people to trust you. A partner or close associate will open up, given some time. Tonight: Where your friends are. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Take a stand. Be as clear as possible about what is driving you, and know full well what feels right. A key person in your life demands your time and attention. The quality of your day-to-day life is up for examination. Tonight: A must appearance.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You have emotional resonance, and if you follow your intuition, things will work out in the way you want them to. Reach out for someone at a distance who might feel a bit strange at times. A partner or loved one is transforming, slowly but surely. Tonight: Wish upon a star. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Relate to an instrumental person in your life directly. This individual is imaginative and creative, but often not realistic. You might not want to have him or her as an active financial partner, as you could be setting the stage for trouble. Tonight: Visit over dinner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Continue to allow others to steal the spotlight. In your reticence, you will be noticed. You might want to take some personal time. Others are only too delighted to fill in; they also will have a better sense of what you have to handle every day. Tonight: Sort through invitations. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You have an idea that might be difficult to explain in a way that

others can understand. You just might need to go off and do it. Know that the expense or cost might be an issue. If so, look for a partner who understands your vision. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Use your imagination, and funnel your creativity into a fun Halloween project. Though sometimes your thoughts could be twisted or strange, they tend to pique others’ interest. A discussion allows you to see yet another path. Tonight: Ever creative. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) When you think about your domestic life, tension courses through your body. As a result, you could experience a low-level depression. Try a relaxation technique, because you do need to deal with the situation sooner rather than later. Tonight: Follow your instincts with a purchase. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You are likely to say what you think, and you’ll expect someone else to understand the whole concept. Know that this might not be the case. Use your intuition when

dealing with a relative or neighbor. You know what this person will say even before he or she speaks. Tonight: Change your mood. Go out. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are not a sign that is dominated by a need for material items. You do, however, realize the need for money in the society in which you live. Inevitably, money slides through your fingers. Carefully count your change, but if you have a hunch about the lottery, go for it. Tonight: Do some price comparison. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You beam and attract others, like honey attracts a bear. You might be taken aback by all the doors that open up for you. Follow your emotional sense in deciding what to do. Please note that some of the options available now could be closed off very soon. Tonight: Whatever knocks your socks off.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar

Dear Annie: I’ve been out of work for two years. My family has suffered greatly, and my daughter’s mild depression turned severe when this started affecting her life. Recently, my in-laws were kind enough to let the three of us move in so we could save what little we have. But the summer could not have gone worse. My motherin-law has turned into a bully. She doesn’t approve of how I raise my daughter and has been taking it out on the child. Mom calls her hurtful names and has told her that all of our financial problems are her fault. My husband has spoken to his mother numerous times, and I have, as well. But she is stubborn. My daughter has a history of self-harm and low self-esteem, so we began to work on alternate living situations. Sadly, I know the best place for my daughter right now is not with her stepfather and me. I’ve been the one to support her and be there her whole life. Now she’s living with her biological father, and it breaks my heart. He’s a good dad, but I feel like I let her down. I write today because I am having a hard time forgiving my mother-in-law. I understand that our conflicting parenting styles can be hard on her in her house. What I can’t understand is why she’s taking it out on my daughter. -- Mother in Mud Dear Mother: You made the right choice to get your daughter out of the home of your bullying, stubborn mother-in-law. While we would have recommended that your husband put his foot down a little harder, apparently neither of you could set boundaries that stick. Until this situation is resolved, it may not be possible to forgive the woman for her unconscionable behavior. Please find a way to get out of there as soon as possible. Dear Annie: I’ve been with “Hank” for what seems like a hundred years. He is an alcoholic and a drug user. Last year, in an effort to save our marriage, he was in and out of several rehabs. None worked. Here’s the real problem. While in rehab, he relapsed and was kicked out, along with several others. I refused to pick him up, so all of them stayed in a hotel room together. While there, Hank used one of the other addicts (a female) to get drugs and alcohol. He promised her that they were going to be together. Hank is a great father to our children, but I cannot find it in my heart to let this go. He claims there was no affair, but I don’t believe it. It is weighing heavily on my heart. How can I forgive him? -- Lost Dear Lost: Addicts say and do whatever they have to in order to score what they need. Your problems are bigger than whether or not Hank slept with another woman. He may love his children, but he is a terrible role model. Until he gets clean and sober, he is no good to any of you. Please contact Al-Anon (al-anon.alateen. org) and Nar-Anon ( and ask for help. Dear Annie: I had to respond to “Not a Meanie,” whose sister misinterprets everything she says. I could have written that. My sister hears only what she wants to hear. When making plans for anything, large or small, “Ellen” would hear something entirely different from what I said. She would then complain to our middle sister, and it could take weeks to fix the misunderstanding. My solution was to email all plans to Ellen and copy our other sister. Then there was a written record and no chance of my looking like the bad guy. “Meanie” should try this. It will save her a lot of frustration. -- Been There in Hamden, Conn. Dear Hamden: This is a great idea -- as long as you communicate only in writing. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

NEWS Italy quake experts quit amid colleagues’ convictions C anadian Press

ROME – Four top Italian disaster experts quit their posts Tuesday, saying the manslaughter convictions of former colleagues for failing to adequately warn of a deadly 2009 earthquake means they can’t effectively perform their duties. A court in the quakedevastated town of L’Aquila convicted seven former members of Italy’s so-called “Great Risks Commission’’ and sentenced each of them to six years in prison, prompting predictions that experts would be discouraged from working in Italy for fear of similar risks of prosecution.

Commission President Luciano Maiani and two other members resigned, along with a top official for earthquake and volcano risk in the national Department of Civil Protection. Maiani said Monday’s court ruling made it impossible to work in a “calm and efficient’’ way. Prosecutors alleged the defendants – who included some of Italy’s most internationally respected quake experts– didn’t properly inform town residents of the risk of a big quake following weeks of small tremors. But scientists have ridiculed the case, saying earthquakes cannot

Ted battled kidney disease and cancer with great courage over the past couple of years and passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family

Ted was born in Blakeburn, B.C on August 15, 1925. He attended school in Princeton where he started skiing at the age of six. He then pursued a career in the Royal Canadian Air Force and then followed with careers at Canadian Federal Forestry and Fisheries and the University of Calgary, where he managed the weather research station and projects. Ted’s passion in life was family, music, skiing, RVing and genealogy. Ted was a caring, giving man and contributed much of his time to helping others with disabilities to learn to ski. Ted was a founder of the Calgary Disabled Ski Program. During the winter, every week you would find Ted skiing and teaching at COP. Ted was also Past President of CADS (Canadian Association of Disabled Skiing) Ted was also a founding member of the Prairie Schooners 73 RV Club and has been a member for 34 years.

be accurately predicted. The convictions are expected to be appealed. With the verdict, “we understood why the Great Risks Commission has that name,’’ a front-page commentary began in Corriere della Sera, a Milan daily. “The great risks are those to its members, as one deduces from the verdict.’’ Senate President Renato Schifani has called the convictions and prison terms “strange, embarrassing.’’ Many scientists and commentators have noted that the court case failed to address a major cause of fatalities in disasters like quakes and mudslides: erecting homes, schools, hospitals and other public buildings on quakeprone terrain without the proper construction techniques or materials to make the structures more resilient. After the April 2009 quake, which left 308 people dead, many experts said that the 6.3-magnitude temblor wouldn’t have caused such extensive damage if buildings been constructed or retrofitted to meet modern quake zone construction standards. In Washington, the American Geophysical Union described the verdict and prison sentences as “troubling,’’ and expressed concern that they could “ultimately be harmful to international efforts to understand natural disasters and mitigate associated risk.’’ “While the facts of the L’Aquila case are complex, the unfettered exchange of data and information, as well as the freedom and encouragement to participate in open discussions and to communicate results, are essential to the success of any type of scientific research,’’ the union, a professional and scientific organization with members from over 146 countries, said in a statement Tuesday.

Sullivan Mining Railway ties up season C AROLYN GR ANT

The Sullivan Mining Railway has wound up another successful season, bringing the history of the Sullivan Mine to life. The Railway concluded regular tours after Labour Day weekend, but have stayed busy well into October with what has turned into a steady source of customers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Kimberley Conference and Athlete Training Centre. A ride on the Underground Mining Railway has become a must for conference-goers, a perfect way to learn a little about Kimberley and experience the workings of an underground mine, visit the historic powerhouse and ride through the Mark Creek Valley. The last tour of the year involved two trains with 66 passengers in each train. But the work isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done after the railway closes to the public for the season. Major maintenance began as soon as the last tour ended. Teck installed a new culvert under the track at Powder Magazine Creek. President Mick Henningson and track crew Gary Spence and Brent Patterson began redecking the Sever Bridge.

All aboard the last tour of the season for the Sullivan Mining Railway.
