KTUNAXA TREATY

Province unveils Crown land offered to Ktunaxa SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

About 1,700 hectares of Crown land to the north, west and south of Cranbrook could become Ktunaxa Land if the Treaty is finalized. The land offer was shown to the public at an information meeting in Cranbrook on Thursday, October 25. Around 50 people visited The Heritage Inn for the session, facilitated by Cran-

brook Mayor Wayne Stetski with presentations by Ktunaxa, B.C. and Canada negotiators for the Ktunaxa Kinbasket Treaty. In total, 33,458 hectares of Crown land has been offered to the Ktunaxa during negotiations, which are close to resulting in an Agreement In Principle between the three parties, 20 years after the treaty process began. “The next key milestone

will be reaching an Agreement In Principle,” explained Sena Paradis, senior negotiator for Cranbrook. “That agreement itself, while not a legally binding document, does provide a foundation for the final agreement, for the treaty itself.” Paradis added that it has been a long time between public information sessions because the three parties

wanted to make sure they had information to share. “In the beginning, we would come and talk about the treaty process, and people would be like, well, you’ve come too soon, tell us when there is something to sink our teeth into, but don’t wait too long because we don’t want it to be a done deal. “So we are trying to hit the mark by coming out when

we don’t have all the answers and it’s not 100 per cent firmed up, but to share with you what is an important milestone in terms of the land process.” Provincial negotiator Marty Osberg said the land offer was drafted to ensure the Ktunaxa Nation can successfully self-govern.

“Treaty making is a piece of unfinished business for B.C. and Canada. It’s a piece that ended up on the too-hard pile for a long time” Sena Paradis, treaty negotiator for Canada

Megan Wolitski was killed after a minivan crashed through the wall of her school on Thursday.

Girl dies after van crashes into Alta school C anadian Press

ST. PAUL, Alta. – The family of an Alberta girl who was killed when a minivan smashed into her classroom says she wanted to be a teacher, like her mother. Sheldon Oberg confirms that his niece, Megan Wolitski, was the girl who died following Thursday’s incident in St. Paul. Three Grade 6 girls were pinned by the van after it smashed into the basement of Racette Junior High School shortly after the morning bell Thursday. They were airlifted 200 kilometres west to an Edmonton hospital with critical injuries, but police announced Friday that one of them had died. RCMP have charged Richard Benson, 46, with dangerous driving, resisting arrest and possession of a controlled substance. Benson’s relatives say he suffered from seizures and was likely having an attack at the time of the crash. His brother, Walter Benson, says family members who have spoken with him in jail say he dropped his children off at school that morning and blacked out right before his van left an alley, drove through a fence and into a classroom. A vigil took place outside the school Friday night.

See snow? Bring Magnitude 7.7 quake rattles out the shovel B.C., sets off tsunami alerts City reminds residents to clear sidewalks of snow this winter Submit ted

Improving the safety of the public is behind the City of Cranbrook campaign asking residents and businesses to help keep your streets and sidewalks clear of snow and ice this winter. “Regularly clearing ice and snow from your sidewalks and driveways will allow much easier access to your property by the fire department, RCMP or paramedics should an accident or other emergencies happen,” says Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services Chief Wayne Price, adding “it also will make walking easier for our local mail and newspaper carriers and the public at large.” Residents are also encouraged to avoid pushing or blowing snow from their sidewalks, driveways and any windrows back into the street, after the City plows have been by. Public Works Director Joe McGowan says, “it creates issues for our snow removal crews, as the plow will need to make an additional run down your street to clean it up. That additional run increases the City’s costs with additional staff time, fuel and equipment wear and tear, not to mention delays in getting to other areas of the City that also need to be plowed.” Clearing snow is not just the responsibility of the City Public Works department, which does the best they can with the resources available to keep the community moving during the winter months. Responsibility also lies with each resident and business owner to help clear around their home or business. “During and following major snowfalls, our snow removal operation runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and operates with a small fleet of vehicles; four salt/sand trucks with belly plows, two graders and two loaders,” says McGowan. “With this schedule and the equipment we have, it is reasonable to expect most areas of the City to be cleared within 3 or 4 days of a snowfall, depending on the amount of snow and how fast it comes down.” The City of Cranbrook current Snow and Ice Control policy in place clearly identifies four levels of priorities for streets for City crews to follow: Classification “A” – FIRST PRIORITY: Major streets, hospital zones, roads that access emergency service facilities, roads with severe grades and transit routes will be cleared first. In some instances, snowfall is heavy enough and continual during the plowing process, that once these routes are cleared crews need to start them over again. That often causes a delay in getting to other areas of the City. Classification “B” – SECOND PRIORITY: This includes collector streets, the central business district and school zones. Classification “C” – THIRD PRIORITY: This includes other residential streets within the City whose immediate need for snow and ice control is not as important. Vehicles can move around with limited congestion at suitable speeds. Classification “D” – FOURTH PRIORITY: The remaining streets, drives, crescents, lanes and alleys where traffic volume is relatively low. Traffic is able to proceed at lower speeds in these residential areas. SIDEWALKS: Sidewalks also have a priority system, but do not get cleared until the streets are in good enough condition that Public Works can shift personnel to snow clearing on select public sidewalks. As personnel are freed up from roadway snow removal, the City’s practice is to run one and sometimes two machines on sidewalks, beginning in the downtown core. Public Works does not clear Rotary Way.

VANCOUVER – A violent earthquake measuring 7.7 jolted British Columbia’s north-central coast Saturday night, frightening residents and forcing many to temporarily leave their homes for higher ground ahead of a possible tsunami. Tsunami warnings were issued for the North Coast, the Haida Gwaii islands, parts of the central B.C. coast, the coast of Alaska and as far away as Hawaii. Early Sunday morning the warnings were downgraded to advisory status, meaning evacuations were no longer necessary, and they were cancelled altogether a few hours later. Residents near the centre of the quake said the violent jolting lasted for up to a minute, but no injuries or major damage had been reported. Brent Ward, an earth scientist at Simon Fraser University, said the earthquake was the second largest to hit the country since 1949, when another earthquake was recorded in the same area with a magnitude of 8.1. Ward said the area is known as the Queen Charlotte fault, where the earth’s plates slide horizontally across each other in a strikeslip action, similar to what happens along California’s San Andreas fault. Dennis Sinnott, who works at the Institute of Ocean Sciences, said the largest wave hit Langara Island, a northern Haida Gwaii island, and measured just 69 centimetres. The quake also set off emergency sirens across the Pacific on the islands of Hawaii, but even as people were moving to higher ground, the warning was called off. In Alaska, the wave surge was just 10 centimetres, much smaller than officials had been forecasting. Kelli Kryzanowski, manager of strategic initiatives Emergency

Management B.C., said the initial earthquake occurred at 8:04 p.m. inland on Haida Gwaii and was initially recorded at a magnitude of 7.1 but was quickly upgraded to a magnitude of 7.7. Kryzanowski said small waves generated by the quake, measured at 28 centimetres and 44 centimetres, also hit the northern tip of Vancouver Island. Residents rushed out of their homes in Tofino when the tsunami sirens sounded, but they were allowed to return about two hours after the quake. The quake shook Vancouver Island, the Haida Gwaii area, Prince Rupert, Quesnel and Houston, and was even felt in Metro Vancouver and Alaska.

South hill among land offered to Ktunaxa Province offered, Ktunaxa conditionally accepted land south of Cranbrook, at Jimsmith and New Lake, and south of Wycliffe Continued from page 1 “The package has to contain within it the capacity to generate the revenue that will be necessary to sustain self government,” he said. Osberg went through maps of the Crown land that was offered to the Ktunaxa and conditionally accepted in February 2012. However, the treaty parties agreed the maps would only be shown to the public at the information meetings. Government representatives were not able to answer questions from media after the meeting. The Townsman was present for the map presentation, and can provide a rough description of where the Ktunaxa Lands would be. However, because the maps are not publicly available, the Townsman could not obtain a copy for publication. Around Cranbrook, the land offer includes land to the north, south and west of the city. “Initially there was a strong interest in own-

ing lands to the east of Cranbrook, but there was a big issue there with respects to the community forest. We didn’t want to get into a big argument with community members about the transfer of ownership of the community forest. We know what values the local community places on that as a recreational feature,” explained Marty Osberg. “So we backed away from that and we concentrated our focus on Crown lands on the outskirts of Cranbrook that have reasonable topography and in the longer term present opportunities for the Ktunaxa to participate in any sort of growth that happens around the community. These are lands that will have value in the future for residential development, for institutional development.” There are five parcels surrounding Cranbrook in the land offer, totalling 1,700 hectares.

If the treaty is signed, the Steeples mountains would be given a Ktunaxa name and special cultural protection above 2,000 metres in elevation, although the province would retain ownership. ly as the “south hill” is part of the offer, south of Southview and including Hidden Valley Road and Moyie Lake Road. All road rights-ofway will remain provincial property. There is a parcel next to Jimsmith Lake, and another around New Lake. A large parcel is west of Wycliffe Park Road before the McPhee Bridge. Also, the St. Mary’s Band’s current land will be expanded south in the area north of Standard Hill Road. In the South Country, a total of about 1,200 hectares near Koocanusa would become Ktunaxa Lands. North of Kikomun Bridge, there are two parcels on either side of the reservoir. On the eastern shore, a 136 hectare piece on Desrosiers Road, and directly opposite a 420 hectare piece on the western shore from the bridge, all the way north to the gas line crossing. There is about 400 hectares between the Tobacco Plains Band land and Koocanusa along the U.S. border, and at Big Springs, and there is a small piece at Elk River Springs. Another 228 hectares is on the eastern shore of Koocanusa south of where the Elk River comes in. In the Elk Valley, there are significant wilderness parcels, and the total land offer in that area is about 5,500 hectares.

Most significant is 3,000 hectares in the Flathead range in B.C.’s eastern-most corner, including a non-operational border crossing. The land offer includes 1,000 hectares on the Wigwam River, 1,300 hectares around Snowshoe Lake, and 65 hectares near Weary Creek. Closest to Fernie is a 350 hectare piece to the west, between Mt. Fernie Provincial Park and the power lines to the north. In the Columbia Valley, the land offer includes a 2,500 hectare piece to the east of the Akisqnuk Band lands, which includes the Madeas Tatley range and Mount Swansea. There is a 490 hectare piece around Lake Enid, not including the recreation site. In Radium, a parcel has been offered just north of Sinclair Canyon, butting up against Kootenay National Park. Off Settlers Rd, two small parcels have been offered to the Ktunaxa Nation where it already has campsites for its guide outfitting business. Heading south, there is a 250 hectare parcel on the bench above Dutch Creek. Beside Columbia Lake, there are two parcels of Crown land in the offer totalling 45 hectares. One of those sites is critical ungulate habitat, which the Ktunaxa recognizes and wishes to protect. Finally, the offer includes 105 hectares

near Whitetail Lake. To be clear: only land that presently belongs to the B.C. government has been offered to the Ktunaxa. The treaty would also transfer ownership of what is currently known as Indian lands to the Ktunaxa Nation. Those lands are presently owned by the federal government. The provincial government has also offered to create a cultural designation for two significant places in Ktunaxa traditional territory that are too large to be in the land offer. “These lands will remain provincial lands,” said Osberg, but the province and Ktunaxa will enter into a management agreement that protects the land’s wildlife, ecosystem and archeological resource values, he explained. Those two places are the entire eastern shore of Columbia Lake – much of which is already proected in a wildlife management area – and the Steeples mountain range outside Cranbrook. The Steeples area includes Maus Creek and Fisher Peak – the entire range above 2,000 metres in elevation. “We would enter into a collaborative management relationship with the Ktunaxa Nation to manage these areas,” said Osberg. Ktunaxa negotiator Garry Merkel explained that the Ktunaxa Lands will be categorized ei-

ther as private, when they are being used for a purpose that is not compatible with recreational access, or public. “Much of our lands will be public lands. The public will continue to have access to those lands,” said Merkel. “It’s highly unlikely that the wilderness areas will be private lands.” It’s important to understand that the treaty is much broader than the land offer, Merkel said. “This treaty is much more than a real estate deal,” he said. “This is about creating a new level of government.” The treaty would also provide certainty on governance, natural resources, fiscal arrangements and many more vital details. Ktunaxa Nation Chair Kathryn Teneese reassured the public that the treaty is about changing circumstances for the Ktunaxa. “We want to change our circumstances; we want to change what it is that we have to deal with. We’re not looking at intruding on anyone else’s lives but hopefully the things we do will result in making things better for all for us. In our view, if things are working well for the Ktunaxa people as the original people of this place, it will be looking good for all of us,” she said. The three parties in treaty negotiations – which also has representation from local

government in Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski – are “very, very close” to reaching an Agreement In Principle, said Sena Paradis. “Treaty making is a piece of unfinished business for B.C. and Canada. It’s a piece that ended up on the toohard pile for a long time. It’s hard, it’s complex, it’s challenging on so many levels, particularly when cultures have fundamentally different world views. But it’s a challenge we shouldn’t leave for another generation. It’s important that we commit to see this work through,” she said. Once the Agreement In Principle is signed, the three parties begin work towards a final agreement. Provincial negotiator Mark Lofthouse said that process usually takes two-three years. Once the final agreement is signed, the governments begin the implementation process – legislating the treaty – which usually takes around two years.

B.C. Liberals target NDP, unions Tom Fle tcher Black Press

WHISTLER – Premier Christy Clark wound up the B.C. Liberal Party convention Saturday with a combative speech that blasted the NDP for their economic and energy policies. After recounting her government’s job creation efforts and labour agreements with teachers, doctors and other employees, Clark accused the NDP of a list of sins, including a possible moratorium on natural gas development in northern B.C. The NDP would also “jack up personal and business taxes” and take away the secret

ballot for union certifications, Clark told more than 800 cheering delegates at the Chateau Whistler hotel. NDP MLA Shane Simpson has acknowledged the party is considering labour law changes including union certification rules, but no decision has been announced. And NDP leader Adrian Dix has repeatedly stressed that corporate tax rates would only be raised two per cent if he wins the election next May. Pressed on his intentions for personal income tax increases in a radio interview last week, Dix said he would consider a

small increase for people with annual incomes of $150,000 or more. Clark’s suggestion that the NDP might put a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing to extract natural gas drew a quick response from NDP energy critic John Horgan, who set out the party policy a year ago. “We will be looking at the scientific impacts but we support

the process,” Horgan said. “There’s not going to be any moratorium.” Taking questions after the speech, Clark declined to comment on resolutions endorsed by delegates to ban use of mandatory union dues for political activities, and to force disclosure of union spending on salaries and lobbying. NDP MLA Maurine Karagianis said the B.C.

Liberals want to silence unions in political debates, while allowing their “corporate buddies” to spend as much as they want on campaigns. Horgan said the NDP’s election platform will reiterate the party’s position that both business and union donations to political parties should be banned, as they have been for federal parties.

Opinion/Events

Okay, so it’s time to say something about the pipeline debate here in B.C. Let’s just say I’m not crazy about millions of litres of crude being shipped across some of the most pristine land left in this world through pipes that have a history of failing. The impact of even a “small” spill would be devastating and long-lasting. Now, how about this: Instead of spending gazillions of dollars to build and twin these eco time-bombs, so we can sell our valuable resources to China and the rest of Asia, how about we keep it here and use it ourselves? A large percentage of the petroleum products Canadians use is imported from the US, because, according to the oil companies, there isn’t enough refining capacity here in Canada. How about taking that money they want to spend and building another refinery or

two? Not only would it mean no pipelines across B.C., but it would provide thousands of life-long jobs for Canadians, instead of a few hundred jobs to operate and maintain those lines. The economic bonuses would be huge and maybe, just maybe, Canadians would get a break on the price of their gas. Or would the government rather just get a quick influx of foreign cash and to hell with the future? Anyhow, that’s my rant for today. If you agree, let your elected representatives know. It’s time they started looking a little farther down the road. Ron McConnell Wasa

Trade agreement I am writing to express my concern about FIPA, the new trade agreement that Canada is about to enter into with China. Stephen Harper signed it in

Vladivostok, Russia, on Sept. 8 and tabled in the House of Commons on Sept. 26. It is due to become law Nov. 2. Most people are only now becoming aware that this is happening. I can’t believe that our federal government would commit us to the biggest trade deal since NAFTA without any discussion, debate or vote.   This deal will make it easy for Chinese companies to buy up huge amounts of Canadian resources. After that   the Chinese can sue Canada in a secret tribunal if any level of government from federal to municipal makes any regulation that impacts the Chinese company’s EXPECTED profits. Also,   we’ll be locked into this treaty for over 30 years. It’s absolutely ridiculous that our government would try to slide something like this through without most Canadians even being aware. I hope my fellow citizens

will pick up their phones to contact their MP’s and insist that this deal be deferred until Canadians have a chance to understand and debate its ramifications. Melissa Fuller Yahk

Thanks, Ice fans I just wanted to say thanks to all the great Kootenay Ice fans for the nice welcome and friendly atmosphere at the Oct. 20 game between the Blazers and your Kootenay Ice. We really enjoyed meeting  many of the fans and being able to  talk about the game we all love – hockey – and the talent of all those hard working players. It was good to see the great support for the players and  game of hockey. Debbie Fransen Kamloops

ate a tsunami that would initially be about 600 metres high. It would travel outwards in an expanding circle at some 1,000 kilometres per hour, destroying everything on the western coast of Africa in one hour. It would inundate England’s south coast in three, and reach the east coast of the United States, Canada and Cuba in six. Brazilians would have to wait a little longer. The waves would reach up to 20 kilometres inland in low-lying areas. Many tens of millions would die. So let’s imagine that there’s another eruption on Cumbre Vieja, and a committee of global experts is convened to watch the western flank for signs of movement. Should they advise evacuation along all the vulnerable coasts? That’s several hundred million people. Who will give those people food and shelter? How long must they stay inland? And the economic damage would be huge. The experts can’t wait until the last minute to give their advice: you can’t evacuate the entire US east coast in six hours. If they advise evacuation, and nothing bad happens, they will be the most unpopular people on the planet. If they don’t, and the worst does happen, they will be seen as guilty of mass manslaughter, just like the Italian scientists at L’Aquila. Since it will always be much likelier that no catastrophe is going to happen this time, the experts will almost certainly issue reassuring statements intended to keep people in their homes. Just like the Italian scientists. And yet some day, next week or a thousand years from now, that mass of rock on Cumbre Vieja will really fall into the sea. Damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.

Ice lose captain as Czerwonka retires TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice captain Drew Czerwonka has retired from hockey and will head back to Saskatchewan to attend post-secondary school, according to club general manager Jeff Chynoweth. Czerwonka made the announcement to management on Thursday night, which was finalized on Friday as the 20-year-old veteran was a healthy scratch for the tilt against the Swift Current Broncos.

Drew Czerwonka After a four-year roller coaster career in the WHL, which included getting selected 166th overall in the sixth round of the 2010 NHL Draft by the Edmonton Oilers and winning a league championship the following year, Czerwonka had “lost the desire to play,” according to Chynoweth. “I respect his decision,” said Chynoweth. “He’s gone through a lot of injuries and it’s very unfortunate, the timing isn’t great, but more importantly, you want to make sure everything is good with Drew and I think it is and he’s moving on with the next phase of his life. “It’s a new chapter in his life and for the Kootenay Ice, we have to move forward, it’s a big hole to fill.” Injuries limited Czer-

wonka to 40 games last year, as the Ice forward missed the beginning of the season with a shoulder injury sustained from training camp with the Edmonton Oilers, while a lower body injury forced him to miss 14 games at the end of the season. The injury bug dogged the veteran into this year’s training camp, as he missed the opening two weeks of the season due to an off-season incident in August with another shoulder injury. Chynoweth said Czerwonka will return to his home of Glenavon, SK., where he plans to take post-secondary training for welding. Although Czerwonka’s announcement was unexpected, Chynoweth isn’t panicking over finding another player for the vacated overage position. “We’re in no rush to fill that extra 20-year-old spot,” Chynoweth said. “We will, but we’ll take our time and make sure we get the right guy, because we’re not going to be able to replace Drew Czerwonka.” Entering into his fifth career season in the WHL this year, Czerwonka had appeared in 227 games, tallying 48 goals and 110 points. In four post-season campaigns, the veteran played in 27 games and collected five goals and five assists. A product with the Ice over his career, Czerwonka was taken in the first round of the WHL Bantam Draft in 2007, and previously held the franchise record for most goals scored by a rookie, tallying 16 in 2008/09 before Sam Reinhart broke it last year, with 28.

Canada’s Brad Fritsch earns PGA Tour card

Texas — One Canadian earned his PGA Tour card for next season, while another came agonizingly close. Ottawa’s Brad Fritsch will play with the big boys in 2013 after firing a 69 in Sunday’s final round of the Web.com Tour Championship to finish eight shots back of winner Justin Bolli, who closed with a 6-under 65. The top 25 players on the overall money list earned PGA Tour cards. Fritsch moved to No. 18 overall, with his total earnings for the year at $186,168. Adam Hadwin wasn’t as fortunate. The Abbotsford, B.C., golfer closed with a 65, getting up-anddown from behind the green on the par-5 18th at the TPC Craig Ranch for one last birdie. Canadian Press

Broncos earn 5-2 decision over Ice TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice ran into a wall on Friday night. A Finnish wall, to be exact, as Swift Current Broncos import Eetu Laurikainen faced 26 shots in the first period alone, while the offence in front of him scored five times in a 5-2 rout of the hometown team at Western Financial Place. The Ice also suffered a blow to the roster as captain Drew Czerwonka, who was a healthy scratch, announced his retirement from hockey to management on Thursday evening (see sidebar). Jon Martin and Levi

Cable supplied the goals for the Ice, while Levi Bews, Chance Lund, Reese Scarlett, Dillon Heatherington and Colby Cave answered for the Broncos. Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski made 20 saves, while Laurikainen stopped 39 shots by the end of the game. The Broncos converted twice in three opportunities on the power play, while Kootenay made good one one man-advantage in seven chances. Though the Ice ended with a loss, they struck first 2:15 into the first period, when Martin scored his second goal of the season.

Bews tied it up two minutes later, banging the puck in from the side of the net. Lund took the lead by getting a tip on a shot from defenceman Richard Nedomlel, while Reese Scarlett added to the scoresheet a couple minutes later, finishing on a tic-tac-toe play. The Broncos then began a steady march to the penalty box, as the Ice went on power plays for most of the rest of the period, including a fiveon-three that lasted 57 seconds and another one that went for 1:07. The Ice spent most of that time trying to get shots on Laurikainen, but the Finnish import

was solid in the crease, while his penalty killers closed shooting lanes and forced Kootenay to move the puck around the perimeter. “When you get that many opportunities at the start of the game, at first it helps all your guys get into the game, they get a feel for the puck, but when you don’t score, you got to learn to battle through that,” said Ice forward Sam Reinhart. “Their goalie played great, and we didn’t really learn throughout the game, we played into his strengths, he has a great glove hand and it was tough to get away from that and we kept shoot-

ing there.” The first period performance, especially the effort from Laurikainen, is what won the game for the Broncos, according to captain Adam Lowry. “It started with pretty good goaltending in the first. I know we took some untimely penalties…and Eetu came up huge,” said Lowry. “There were a couple backdoor plays where he slid across and was able to get his toe and his glove on and I think it gave us some confidence.” “The way we bounced back after that first goal was huge for us.”

Stampeders run wild in 41-21 romp over Lions DONNA SPENCER Canadian Press

CALGARY — Two quarterbacks with something to prove for the playoffs spurred the Calgary Stampeders to a 41-21 win over the B.C. Lions on Friday. The result meant nothing in the CFL standings. Both clubs went into the game knowing their immediate playoff fate.

The Lions (12-5) had already secured first place and the Stampeders (11-6) second in the CFL’s West Division with wins the previous week. The Stampeders host the division semifinal Nov. 11 at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium with their opponent yet to be determined. The semifinal victor heads to Vancouver to face the Lions in the

West final Nov. 18. So the plot of this nostakes games was how Stampeders quarterback Drew Tate would fare in his first game back from shoulder surgery in July and how head coach John Hufnagel would deploy his quarterbacks Tate and Kevin Glenn. “I thought I did a splendid job,’’ joked Hufnagel before continuing:

“They both moved the football, they both made some plays to put the football in the end zone, so I was pleased. We have another game to evaluate things and get both of them more playing time.’’ Glenn completed 10 of 17 pass attempts for 173 yards - giving him 4,000 passing yards for the season - and threw for a touchdown. Tate

was 5-for-7 for 68 yards and a touchdown pass. He was intercepted once. Glenn started all 14 games in Tate’s absence and had won seven of his previous nine heading into Friday. Tate, who wrestled Calgary’s starting job from Henry Burris late last season, dislocated his shoulder in the second game of the season.

San Francisco Giants sweep Tigers to win World Series Ben Walker Associated Press

DETROIT — Finally pressed in the World Series, the San Francisco Giants finished off a most unexpected and stunning sweep. Marco Scutaro delivered one more key hit this October, hitting a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th inning that lifted the Giants over the Detroit Tigers 4-3 in Game 4 on Sunday night. Nearly eliminated over and over earlier in the playoffs, the Giants sealed their second title in three seasons when Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera looked at strike three right down the middle for the final out. On a night of biting cold, stiff breezes and some rain, the Giants combined the most important elements of championship baseball — great pitching, timely hitting and sharp defence. Series MVP Pablo Sandoval and the un-

derdog Giants celebrated in the centre of the diamond at Comerica Park after winning six elimination games this post-season. “Tonight was a battle,’’ said Giants star Buster Posey, who homered. “And I think tonight was a fitting way for us to end it because those guys played hard. They didn’t stop, and it’s an unbelievable feeling.’’ Cabrera delivered the first big hit for Detroit, interrupting San Francisco’s run of dominant pitching with a two-run homer that blew over the right-field wall in the third. Posey put the Giants ahead 3-2 with a tworun homer in the sixth and Delmon Young hit a tying home run in the bottom half. It then became a matchup of bullpens, and the Giants prevailed. Ryan Theriot led off the 10th with a single

against Phil Coke, moved up on Brandon Crawford’s sacrifice and scored on Scutaro’s shallow single. Center fielder Austin Jackson made a throw home, to no avail. Sergio Romo struck out the side in the bottom of the 10th for his third save of the Series. The Giants finished the month with seven straight wins and their seventh Series championship. They handed the Tigers their seventh straight World Series loss dating to 2006. “Obviously, there was no doubt about it. They swept us,’’ Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. “So there was certainly no bad breaks, no fluke. “Simple, they did better than we did.’’ An NL team won the title for the third straight season, a run that hadn’t occurred in 30 years. Some find the streak surprising, considering the AL’s recent dominance in interleague play. Yet as

every fan knows, the club that pitches best in the post-season usually prevails. Until the end, the Tigers thought one big hit could shift the momentum. It was an alltoo-familiar October lament _ Texas felt the same way when the Giants throttled them in 2010, and Tigers knew the feeling when St. Louis wiped them out in 2006. Howling winds made it feel much colder than the 44 degrees at gametime. Two wrappers blew across home plate after leadoff man Angel Pagan struck out, and fly balls played tricks in the breeze. The Giants started with their pregame ritual. They clustered around Hunter Pence in the dugout, quickly turning into a bobbing, whooping, pulsing pack, showering themselves with sunflower seeds. A big league good-luck charm, Little League style.

Nitros return home with a win and two losses in weekend road trip Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters have returned with a win and two losses following a threegame road trip through the Okanagan last weekend. The Nitros dropped a 3-1 decision to the Princeton Posse, rebounded with a 1-0 win over the Osoyoos Coyotes, but lost their final game 5-1 to the Penticton Lakers. Despite the weekend record, the Nitros have moved up to the top of the Eddie Mountain Division—one point ahead of their divisional rivals in the Fernie Ghostriders. In Princeton on Friday, both teams were tied at 1-1 after the open-

ing period, with goals from Lane Erickson for the Posse and Riley Hellekson for the Nitros. However, Princeton broke it open in the following frame, as Justin Moltzahn and Kurtis Bond found the back of the net. Both teams held each other scoreless in the final period. Bryce Halverson turned away 23 shots for Kimberley, while Jack Burgart made 13 saves for the Posse. Princeton outshot the Dynamiters in all three periods. The Nitros rolled into Osoyoos the following night and edged out a gritty 1-0 win over the second-ranked team in the KIJHL.

Hellekson scored the lone goal of the hockey game for the Dynamiters in the second period on a power play. Nitro goaltender Bryce Halverson earned the first star of the game, turning away 34 shots, while Bryson McKinnon stopped 41 shots for the Coyotes. It was a penalty-riddled affair, as the Dynamiters had 12 opportunities on the man-advantage, capitalizing once on Hellekson’s marker. The Coyotes, in turn, were denied on all nine power play chances. A strong first period contributed towards the win for the Lakers on Sunday, as Penticton built on an early

two-goal lead to end the affair by a score of 5-1. The Lakers added a third goal in the second period, while holding the Dynamiters off the scoreboard. Mitchell Loose put the Nitros on the board in the third period, but Dylan Gamble and Philip Cameron scored to put the game out of reach for Kimberley. Halverson manned the crease for the third consecutive game, stopping 21 shots, while his opponent, Niall McGregor, stopped 30 shots. Next home action is Friday night at the Civic Centre, where the Nitros will host the Columbia Valley Rockies.

Broncos prevail with strong goaltending Continued from page 8 The Broncos got a lucky goal in the second period, when Heatherington fired the puck from the corner that deflected off an Ice defenceman and into the net. Cable responded for

Kootenay on the club’s only power play goal, taking a puck that rebounded off the back boards and stuffing it into the net near the halfway mark of the period. Jagger Dirk took a puck to the face and had

to leave for the dressing room, but the veteran Ice defenceman returned the bench a few minutes later. Cave scored the final marker for Swift Current in the third period, deflecting a cross-ice pass top corner over Skapski’s

glove. It’s the fourth loss in a row for the Ice, which sit at the bottom of the Eastern Conference. The team has the week off before hosting the Saskatoon Blades in the first of a triple-header to start the next weekend.

And once again, San Francisco took an early lead. Pence hit a onehop drive over the centre-field fence for a double and Brandon Belt tripled on the next pitch for a 1-0 lead in the second. The next inning, Cabrera gave the Tigers a reason to think this might be their night. With two outs and a runner on first, Cabrera lofted an opposite-field fly to right _ off the bat, it looked like a routine out shy of the warning track. But with winds gusting over 25 mph, the ball kept carrying, Pence kept drifting toward the wall and the crowd kept getting louder. Just like that, it was gone. Cabrera’s homer gave Detroit its first lead of the Series, ended its 20-inning

scoreless streak and reaffirmed a pregame observation by Tigers Hall of Famer Al Kaline. “The wind usually blows to right at this time of year,’’ Kaline said. In the fourth, Max Scherzer and catcher Gerald Laird teamed on a strike ‘em outthrow ‘em out double play. Scherzer yelled, first baseman Prince Fielder clenched his fist and the Tigers ran off the field on a chilly, windy, rainy evening. At last, it seemed, all the elements were in their favour. Trailing for the first time since Game 4 of the NL championship series, Posey and the Giants put a dent in Detroit’s optimism. Scutaro, the NLCS MVP, led off the sixth with a single and clapped all the way

around the bases when Posey sent a shot that sailed just inside the left-field foul pole for a 3-2 lead. Posey, the only Giants player on the field from the starting lineup in the Game 5 clincher in 2010, almost tripped nearing first base and he watched the ball and began his trot. Detroit wasn’t about to go quietly, however. Young, the ALCS MVP, made it 3-all with another opposite-field homer to right, this one a no-doubt drive. Fielder finished 1 for 14 (.111) for the Series. All 24 teams to take a 3-0 lead in the World Series have won it all. In fact, none of those matchups even reached a Game 6. This was the first sweep for an NL team since Cincinnati in 1990.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’ve been married for 47 years to a man who is 13 years older than I am. He reminds me often that he is 86 and set in his ways. For much of our marriage, I have carried the load around the house, but now it is worse. My husband barely does anything. At least he has a hobby that keeps him busy. Otherwise, he would sit in our den recliner watching TV all day. I mostly confine myself to our bedroom because if I set foot in the den, it becomes a shouting match since he cannot hear me because the TV is so loud. And he gets angry if I ask him to turn it down. He got a new TV for Father’s Day, and I am barely allowed to watch it. He doesn’t even have the courtesy to listen or speak to me if he is reading the newspaper. I know where I am on the totem pole. I get no respect from him. I guess things are not going to get better. I went as far as packing my bags and renting a car. You would think that would have made a difference, but no such luck. I don’t want to burden anyone with my problems, especially my children. I have cried many nights. It helps simply to unburden myself to you, but I know it won’t last. What do I do? -- An Unhappy Prisoner Dear Unhappy: Your husband has decided to settle into a sedentary old age, and you aren’t ready for that. But marriage vows include “in sickness and in health,” and this is part of the deal. Unless you are looking to divorce him, we recommend you immerse yourself in your own hobbies and interests. If the TV is too loud, see whether you can find amplifying headphones that he is willing to use. Don’t try to converse with him when he’s watching. Get out of the house instead. You’re not a “prisoner.” Meet friends for dinner. Work out at the health club. Ask a girlfriend to go to the movies. Take the grandchildren on a field trip. Join a choir or community theater. Find ways to keep yourself occupied so you are fulfilled and content, and so that your problems with Hubby recede into the background of your life. Dear Annie: I am having a party for my child’s first birthday. We are already overrun with toys in our home. Right now, he prefers to play with mixing bowls and boxes rather than store-bought toys. Is it proper to indicate on the invitation “no toys, please”? We’d much rather get clothing or money to put into a college fund. -- Grateful Mama of Little One Dear Mama: It is never appropriate to tell your guests what they should get you. Unless you want to ask people to bring a toy to donate to charity (a lovely idea), you should not specify anything on the invitations. If people should ask, it is OK to tell them your preferences, and you also can make suggestions to one or two people and ask them to spread the word. Otherwise, return the gifts or give them to a charity so underprivileged children can get something for the holidays. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Enough Is Enough,” whose boyfriend’s family can’t forgive her for an indiscretion with her ex-boyfriend. Some people are unable to place their spouses first when they marry. I never cheated on my husband, but anytime it came to my needs, e.g., “I don’t want your mother smoking in our house,” he’d ignore me and hand his mom an ashtray. Even though his sister was stealing my jewelry, he gave her a set of keys to our house because “they’re family.” He never quite understood that his primary allegiance should have been to his wife. I divorced him, and he’s now back living with the woman he really loves: Mommy. -- Sacramento, Calif.

Northeast US buttons up against megastorm Allen G. Breed, Wayne Parry Associated Press

SHIP BOTTOM, N.J. – Shelters opened and tens of thousands of people were ordered to evacuate coastal areas Sunday as big cities and small towns across the Northeast buttoned up against the onslaught of a superstorm threatening some 50 million people along the most heavily populated corridor in the nation. “The time for preparing and talking is about over,’’ Federal Emergency Management Administrator Craig Fugate warned as a monster Hurricane Sandy headed up the Eastern Seaboard on a collision course with two other weather systems. “People need to be acting now.’’ New York City announced its subways, buses and trains would stop running Sunday night, and its 1.1 million-student school system would be closed on Monday. Mayor Michael Bloomberg also ordered the evacuation of part of lower Manhattan and other low-lying neighbourhoods. “If you don’t evacuate, you are not only endangering your life, you are also endangering the lives of the first responders who are going in to rescue you,’’ he said. “This is a serious and dangerous storm.’’ Tens of thousands of people along the coast in Delaware, New Jersey, Connecticut and other threatened areas were also under orders to clear out because of the danger of as much as a foot of rain, punishing winds of 80 mph and a potentially deadly tidal surge of 4 to 8 feet.

Sandy was headed north from the Caribbean, where it left nearly five dozen people dead, and was expected to hook left toward the mid-Atlantic coast and come ashore late Monday or early Tuesday, most likely in New Jersey, colliding with a wintry storm moving in from the west and cold air streaming down from the Arctic. Forecasters warned that the resulting megastorm could wreak havoc over 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. Parts of West Virginia, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina could get snow – 2 feet or more in places. The danger was hardly limited to coastal areas, with forecasters worried about inland flooding. They also warned that the rain could saturate the ground, causing trees to topple onto power lines and cause blackouts that could last for several days. States of emergency were declared from North Carolina, where gusty winds whipped steady rain on Sunday morning, to Connecticut. Delaware ordered 50,000 people in coastal communities to clear out by 8 p.m. Sunday. Officials in New York City were particularly worried about the possibility of subway flooding. The city closed the subways before Hurricane Irene last year, and a Columbia University study predicted that an Irene surge just 1 foot higher would have paralyzed lower Manhattan. Sandy was at Category 1 strength, packing 75 mph winds, about 250 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C., and moving north-

east at 14 mph as of 11 a.m. Sunday, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It was about 575 miles south of New York City. The storm was so big, however, and the convergence of the three storms so rare, that “we just can’t pinpoint who is going to get the worst of it,’’ said Rick Knabb, director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Bobbie Foote said she would heed an evacuation order Sunday for south Wilmington, Del., and would take shelter at her daughter’s home in nearby Newark. “My daughter insists that I leave this time,’’ said Foote, a 58-year-old fitness coach. It will be the first time she has fled a storm threatening the apartment building that has been her home for at least 40 years in the working-class neighbourhood near the Delaware River. Foote said she stayed last year when flooding from the remnants of Hurricane Irene blocked streets at either end of the neighbourhood. She said her daughter wouldn’t stand for her getting trapped that way again. Amtrak began cancelling train service Saturday night to parts of the East Coast, including between Washington and New York. Airlines started moving planes out of airports to avoid damage and added Sunday flights out of New York and Washington in preparation for flight cancellations on Monday. The Virginia National Guard was authorized to call up to 500 troops for debris removal and road-clearing, while homeowners stacked sandbags at their front doors in

President Barack Obama was monitoring the storm and working with state and locals governments to make sure they get the resources needed to prepare, administration officials said. In North Carolina’s Outer Banks, there was some scattered, minor flooding at daybreak Sunday on the beach road in Nags Head. Rising tides and pounding waves were expected as the day wore on. In New Jersey, hundreds of coastal residents started moving inland. Gov. Chris Christie’s emergency declaration will force the shutdown of Atlantic City’s 12 casinos for only the fourth time in the 34-year his-

tory of legalized gambling here. City officials said they would begin evacuating the gambling hub’s 30,000 residents at noon Sunday, busing them to mainland shelters and schools. The storm also forced the presidential campaign to juggle schedules. Romney scrapped plans to campaign Sunday in Virginia and switched his schedule for the day to Ohio. First lady Michelle Obama cancelled an appearance in New Hampshire for Tuesday, and Obama moved a Monday departure for Florida to Sunday night to beat the storm. He also cancelled appearances in northern Virginia on Monday and Colorado on Tuesday.

Myanmar strife victims flee to already packed camps Khin Maung Win Associated Press

SITTWE, Myanmar _ Victims of Myanmar’s latest explosion of Muslim-Buddhist violence fled to already packed displacement camps along the country’s western coast Sunday, with a top U.N. official saying the unrest has forced more than 22,000 people from their homes. State television reported the casualty toll has risen to 84 dead and 129 injured over the past week in nine townships in Rakhine state. The figures have not been broken down by ethnic group, but New York-based Human Rights Watch has said Rohingya Muslims bore the brunt of the unrest and the true death toll may be far higher. On Sunday, wooden boats carrying some refugees arrived outside the state capital, Sittwe. The people trudged to the nearby Thechaung camp, a place already home to thousands of Rohingya who took refuge there after a previous wave of violence in June. “I fled my hometown,

Reuters/Soe Zeya Tun

People displaced by the recent violence in the Kyukphyu township sit together after arriving to Thaechaung refugee camp, outside of Sittwe October 28, 2012. Pauktaw, on Friday because there is no security at all,’’ said 42-year-old fisherman Maung Myint, who arrived on a boat carrying 40 other people, including his wife and six children. “My house was burned to ashes and I have no money left.’’ Another Muslim refugee said she fled her village, Kyaukphyu, on Thursday after attackers set her home on

fire. “We don’t feel safe,’’ said 40-year-old Zainabi, a fish seller who left with her two sons, aged 12 and 14. “I wish the violence would stop so we can live peacefully.’’ Human Rights Watch released dramatic satellite imagery of Kyaukphyu on Saturday showing a vast, predominantly Rohingya swath of the village in ashes. The

destruction included more than 800 buildings and floating barges. There were no reports of new violence Sunday. It was unclear what sparked the latest clashes, but ill will between Muslims and Buddhists in Rakhine state goes back decades and has its roots in a dispute over the Rohingya’s origins. Although many Rohingya have lived in Myanmar for generations, they are seen as foreign intruders who came from Bangladesh to steal scarce land. Today, the Rohingya also face official discrimination, a policy encouraged by Myanmar’s previous military regimes to enlist popular support among other groups. A 1984 law formally excluded them as one of the country’s 135 ethnicities, meaning most are denied basic civil rights and are deprived of citizenship. Neighbouring Bangladesh, which also does not recognize the Rohingya as citizens, says thousands of Rohingya refugees have sought to flee there by boat. Its policy, however, is to re-

fuse them entry. Rights groups say Myanmar’s failure to address the root causes of the crisis means the situation may get worse. Over the weekend, Border Affairs Minister Lt. General Thein Htay travelled to the affected areas with the U.N. resident and humanitarian co-ordinator in Myanmar, Ashok Nigam. Nigam said 22,587 were displaced and they included both Muslims and ethnic Rakhine Buddhists, but he gave no breakdown. Speaking to The Associated Press on Sunday while visiting Thechaung camp, Nigam said getting aid to the new wave of displaced people will be a challenge as some fled on boats and others have sought refuge on isolated hilltops. “The situation is certainly very grave and we are working with the government to provide urgent aid to these people,’’ he said. Some 4,600 homes were also destroyed, according to the U.N, which said in a separate statement that it had

begun distributing emergency food and shelter supplies with its humanitarian partners to refugees in urgent need of help. The latest unrest pushes the total displaced to nearly 100,000 since sectarian clashes broke out in June, when at least 90 people died and 3,000 homes were destroyed. That unrest left about 75,000 people, mostly Rohingya, living in refugee camps since then. Curfews have been in place in some areas since the earlier violence and were extended this past week. “It is critically important that the government ensures that the rule of law prevails, prevents any further spreading of this violence and continues to communicate strong messages of harmony,’’ Nigam said in a statement later Sunday. “The violence, fear and mistrust are contrary to the democratic transition and economic and social development that Myanmar is committed to,’’ Nigam said. “It should not become an impediment to progress.’’

Hootin’ and hollerin’ on the thrift store runway Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

This year’s Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary Thrift Store Fashion Show was as fabulous as ever on October 25. The ladies showed off the best in thrift store fashions for an enthusiastic crowd. “There was a lot of hootin’ and hollerin’, a lot of laughter,” said Sandy Zeznik, president of the CHCA. “Everybody seems to be saying it was pretty fun.” The popular annual fundraiser raises money for the East Kootenay Regional Hospital to purchase new equipment to serve patients. Zeznik said while the final tally for this year’s edition isn’t complete, they usually average about $7,000 every year. That money is collected through an auction of the catwalk fashions, raffles, silent auctions and ticket sales. The collection of fashions from the Auxiliary thrift

store begins in January of every year. Zeznik said members have a great time picking things out and matching up outfits with their accessories throughout the year. “We try and pull out our best,” she said. “They have lots of fun.” Sometimes the women even find items in their own closet they had planned to bring to the thrift store to put up for auction. They match each outfit to the perfect model. “They have a say in what they’re comfortable with,” Zeznik said. The Auxiliary has three major fundraisers. The first two are the thrift store, the second is the gift shop at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital and the third biggest is the fashion show. Once the funds are collected for the fashion show, the Auxiliary meets with hospital administration to decide the best equipment to spend the money on. Zeznik said each depart-

ment makes a list of their needs each year. Once they pick out some potential pieces to fund, the members get the final vote. “It comes with a lot of guidance from hospital staff,” she said. The fashion show wouldn’t happen every year without a team of volunteers. From sorting through outfits, to MC duties to ticket sales, it takes an army. Zeznik is the co-convener of the fashion show along with CHCA vice president Rachel Christie, but she says there are too many names to list that help make the event such a success every year. This year tickets sold out, so Zeznik is urging anyone interested in attending next year to keep their ears to the ground for the 2013 tickets to go on sale. You won’t want to miss next year’s fun and the hilarious antics of models and the special guests. “They really ham it up on the stage.”
