Bishop is alive and well and not stuck in Manila Email hacking scamsters are trying out a new scam C A ROLYN GR AN T

Police are continually warning against scams, and scammers are continually coming up with creative ways to continue to scam. A new scam making the rounds via email is a request for funds to help out an acquaintance who has been robbed in a foreign country. This one is very hard to resist, as the writer describes being stranded in a foreign country with no money or credit cards, just a passport, after a supposed theft. Betty Aitchison from Kimberley received just such an email on Tuesday morning this week. It was from someone she knew, Darryl Bishop of Cranbrook, who is involved with the Sunrise Rotary Club’s Rockies Film Series.

Colleen Smith had no idea her granddaughter Katey Norton would be up for a prize when she picked up the Burn Fund calendar as a gift to comfort her as she battles brain cancer in Calgary. Smith thought the calendar would be a beautiful reminder of home as Katey, 25, recovers in hospital. Instead, the young woman received a box suite at an upcoming Kootenay Ice game and 12 tickets that she’ll use next time she’s home in Cranbrook.

Dancing in the teeth of the gale Cranbrook’s Royal Stewart Highland Dancers sailed straight into Tropical Storm Sandy

ANNALEE GRANT Townsman Staff

The Royal Stewart Highland Dancers got a little more than they bargained for when Hurricane Sandy literally rained on their parade during their cruise vacation. Katie Saffin, Emily Balfour, Katie Macleod and Alexandra Demarchi were set

to leave from Miami for the Sadie Simpson Scholarship competition aboard the Majesty of the Seas. Hurricane Sandy – then a tropical storm – was in Miami wreaking havoc on the usually sunny destination when the girls arrived by airplane. Instructor Jane Nixon and parent chaperones were with

the girls the whole way. Nixon told the Townsman it wasn’t exactly the vacation they had all looked forward to. The cruise was in danger of being cancelled as the storm pounded the city. The dancers decided to brave the weather and explore Miami as best they could.

Nixon said she and the girls took a tour around the city, stopping at famous landmarks like South Beach. Nixon said something was amiss though, as they tried to enjoy the scenery. “The manhole covers were popping out of the ground,” she said. Back in their hotel rooms,

Nixon said they watched the path of the storm as it ripped through Jamaica. On the Thursday before they left, 12 people had been killed. The death toll grew to 41 by Friday. “It was really frightening,” she said.

Nerve monitor welcomed at hospital

East Kootenay Regional Hospital christened a new piece of high-tech equipment on Friday Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

Surgeons at East Kootenay Regional Hospital are now better equipped for head and neck surgery. Chief of surgery Dr. Ryan Cain took delivery of a new nerve integrity monitor on Friday, October 26, and performed two surgeries using the $50,000 equipment the same day. “It gives you real time monitoring of the integrity of nerves in the head and neck,” said Dr. Cain. The monitor is used by surgeons when dissecting tumours off nerves in the face so they can tell in real time whether nerve function has been preserved. “This is a state-of-the-art machine,” said Dr. Cain. “It puts us on par with the latest and most up-to-date equipment.” The hospital previously used an old-fashioned machine for this type of surgery, but it failed in the spring. Since then a wait list for head and neck surgeries has been growing. “Interior Health found a way in a very tight budget,” said Dr. Cain. “It’s one of those unforeseen eventualities that pop up in the field of medicine.” He said that the two head and neck surgeons in Cranbrook will perform two or three of these cases every two months. “People appreciate having Sally MacDonald photo this work done here,” said Dr. Cain, rather than travelling to Medtronic representative Jessica Rudd (left) delivered a $50,000 nerve integrity monitor to surgery unit coordinator Marlene Skucas and chief of surgery Dr. Ryan Cain on Friday, Oct. 26.

Two Victoria women had a double scare from a shark and a tsunami alert on the last day their holiday in Maui on the weekend. First, Jane Gair was snorkelling when she came within a few meters of a shark that later bit a California woman. Gair swam ashore and warned her friend, Janice Speller, to get out of the water before the American woman was attacked, and the two Victorians later stayed with the woman and her husband until paramedics arrived. Then later in the same day, Gair and Speller were among hundreds of people who sought higher ground after a tsunami alert that was triggered by the earthquake off the B.C. coast Saturday night.

Cyndi Port (left), representing Cranbrook Pheonix Toastmasters Club, and Kathy Simon (right), with Cranbrook First Toastmasters, both took first place in their respect club contests. The pair then competed in the Area contest, held in Cranbrook, and again took the two top spots. Port and Simon advanced to the Division contest, held in Vernon two weeks ago. The Division stretches from the Alberta border to the furthest edges of the Okanagan region. At Divisions, Simon took third place in the “Humorous Speech” contest, while Port took first place in “Table Topics.” As first place winner, Port will now head to District competition in Richmond, which includes clubs from all over B.C. As of next year, Toastmasters International will be dividing District 21 (B.C.) — which includes 289 clubs, into two districts.

Dancers perform in the face of the storm Continued from page 1 The cruise line decided the show must go on, so the girls boarded the vessel and off they went into the tropical storm. “We took off on the boat into the hurricane,” Nixon said. They soon began questioning whether the cruise line made the right choice as sea swells up to 11 metres (36 feet) smashed against the sides of the ship. “It was a bad decision.” Back home, the families worried about the girls as they did not have constant communication. The boat rocked back and forth in the swells, and many of the passengers — including the Cranbrook dancers — became seasick. The wind was so high that no one was allowed to go outside or enjoy the pools. Nixon said the dancers spent much of their time battling seasickness in the safety of their rooms. “They didn’t really sell us on cruises,” she said. One of the destinations of the cruise had been Cococay, Bahamas, but the ship was forced to pass it by. Many cruise lines reported damage to their private beaches and resorts in the region. Unfortunately for the girls, the cruise wasn’t the only thing that had to go ahead. The highland dancers still had to dance in their competition. Nixon said many dancers were unable to perform, but the girls from Cranbrook had worked too hard to quit. “They couldn’t see not doing it,” Nixon said, adding that all girls

put in an incredible affort to train and their parents had committed to funding their trip. All three girls danced even though they were sick to their stomachs and the boat continued to rock in the waves. Nixon said it was extremely loud as the waves smashed the ship. Cranbrook’s dancers were able to perform, but many were not so lucky. Some attempted but ended up vomiting and abandoning the attempt. Nixon said at one point a judge was attempting to deliver her feedback and was sick. “It was kind of surreal,” Nixon said. “We all wanted to go home.” But with so many odds against them, the girls more than outdid themselves. MacLeod placed first in the Senior North American scholarship Written Paper competition, besting 50 other dancers, and as Nixon cheekily notes, the hurricane itself. Saffin came in fourth place in the Junior North American category over 55 other dancers. “This is a huge achievement in the world of highland dancing, for both Katie Macleod and Katie Saffin and for the Royal Stewart Highland Dancers.” Nixon said. “Not only did the dancers study hard for this trip but they also trained and worked to perform on a cruise ship rocking in the wake of hurricane Sandy with swells up to 11 metres.” After leaving the area of Cococay, Nixon said the ship headed for calmer waters south of

Finally, the girls got the chance to get off the ship and enjoy some

fun in the sun. “It was phenomenal just to be on land again,” Nixon said. The girls enjoyed the beach and the hot sand before heading back to

the ship bound for Miami again. Looking back, Nixon said her first hurricane experience will hopefully be her last. “I don’t care to see it

again,” she said. The girls will all return to school this week after some rest to recover from their big adventure. Nixon said the girls will have a lot to tell

their classmates. But the single thought that is running through all their minds? “We are all so happy to be back home in B.C.!”

Scam artists hacking into private emails Continued from page 1 In the scam, the writer — supposedly Bishop — tells the recipient that he and his family are trapped in Manila, Philippines after being robbed. They have eight hours to catch their flight, and the police and embassy are

not being helpful. The request is for 1,850 Euros, with the assurance that it will be paid back as soon as the writer returns to Canada. Of course, Darryl Bishop never left Canada. His email was hacked.

“I have been hacked,” Bishop said. “Unfortunately the email went out to all 230 contacts of the Rockies Film Series.” Interestingly, Bishop says he received a similar email a few weeks ago from someone in the United States.

“I found myself a little torn between disbelief and hoping that the person was all right. It’s fairly convincing.” Bishop says he doesn’t know if him receiving an email like that is related to his account being hacked. However, he assures ev-

eryone that his password has now been changed and there should be no more emails like that sent out. Incidentally, the Rockies Film Series presents Inescapable on Thursday, November 1 at the Columbia Theatre at 7 p.m.

Anti deer cull groups unite under B.C.-wide banner Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

A Cranbrook group opposed to the urban deer cull has united with similar groups in other B.C. communities to stand against lethal methods of deer control. Based in Cranbrook, the grassroots group Humane Treatment of Urban Wildlife (HTUW) formed in January 2012, but last month it united with three like-minded groups to form the British Columbia Deer Protection Coalition. HTUW, DeerSafe Victoria, the Invermere Deer Protection Society and Animal Alliance of Canada have come together to educate the public about non-lethal methods of deer management, said Colleen Bailey, chair of HTUW.

“We know this is a huge issue in many communities, so rather than trying to piecemeal each community with education and information, we decided to conglomerate our efforts so we would have more resources at our disposal,” said Bailey. “We want to be a resource, not only for individuals and private citizens but for municipalities and elected officials to be able to access some ideas.” Last November, Cranbrook culled 25 urban deer – 11 whitetail and 14 mule – using clover traps. It was the first of three East Kootenay communities to carry out a cull with a license from the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Opera-

tions. Now, the coalition is working with wildlife biologists to collate research on deer management methods, she went on. “What we try to do is remove the emotion out of the topic. This is such a highly volatile situation for all of our communities. We don’t want to divide the communities; we want to unite the communities. “We have been accused of being the emotional ones and coming from an emotional perspective, but in reality we are coming from science. It’s the people going, ‘Somebody’s going to get killed,’ that are coming from an emotional base. We are saying let’s do something to prevent that through scientific re-

The Humane Treatment of Urban Wildlife said people need to understand that allowing deer to eat apples in city yards results in them being killed. search, education and understanding.” In the coalition’s view, culling is not effective because last year’s deer cull in Cranbrook did not reduce the overall numbers of urban deer in town. “The Coalition doesn’t see the purpose in spending tax dollars on something we know will have to be a continual effort to maintain the numbers. Culling isn’t a one-time option if they choose that method so taxpayers can count on having their tax dollars spent on this lethal method every year,” said Bailey. Indiscriminate culling does not help with public safety, according to Bailey, because it does not target problem deer. “The deer are not euthanized. It is a completely different term and it’s misrepresenting

to the public what they are doing. People think they are being put to sleep like they are pets. We need to call it what it is and say the deer are being killed,” said Bailey. “Given that it’s not effective in improving public safety, it doesn’t seem right.” The coalition would rather non-lethal methods are used to reduce urban deer conflict. She mentioned “hazing” or “averse conditioning” where herding dogs are used to direct deer out of problematic areas such as schools. But she said that education and policy are the most important steps. For instance, homes on the edge of town could be prohibited from planting cedar trees. And urban residents need to have respect for deer, Bailey said. “We want to make

“We live in a Rocky Mountain community – there will always be deer. We need to learn to coexist with them” Colleen Bailey, Humane Treatment of Urban Wildlife sure people understand deer behaviour. We don’t want people to think, they want to be our friend, or they are out to get us. We want them to go, okay, they are a wild animal, they need to be respected as such. Keep your distance, pick up your fruit, if you must plant a cedar tree wrap it in wire.” Cranbrook residents need to learn to live with deer, she went on. “The public thinks that if they do a deer

cull, the deer will be gone. We live in a Rocky Mountain community – there will always be deer. We need to learn to coexist with them,” said Bailey. HTUW is pleased that the City of Cranbrook is delaying its second cull until a lawsuit between the District of Invermere and the Invermere Deer Protection Societ is resolved. “The coalition is extremely pleased because it is going to give us time to work with them on other solutions if they are willing to work with the coalition,” said Bailey, who is also a citizen member of the Cranbrook Urban Deer Committee consulting the City on the deer cull. Bailey was unable to provide precise membership numbers for HTUW before press time.

Flu clinics continue Ottawa looks into permits with other vaccines for Chinese miners in B.C. Bl ack Press

Flu clinics are proceeding in B.C. despite a decision to suspend the use of vaccine made by Novartis after concerns were raised over its effectiveness. Novartis-made flu vaccine accounts for about 30 per cent of the province’s supply but Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall said B.C. should have enough from other manufacturers to cover everyone who wants to

be immunized. He said there are no concerns about the safety of Novartis vaccines for those who have already had a flu shot, and described the suspension – recommended by Health Canada – as a precautionary measure. B.C. health ministry officials said there’s been no sign of irregularities yet in tests of the Novartis vaccine from B.C. stocks and said it could go back into circulation if it’s cleared for use.

C anadian Press

VANCOUVER – The federal government is investigating foreign worker permits that will bring Chinese miners to British Columbia to determine whether the applications meet federal requirements. Labour leaders have raised numerous concerns about permits obtained by HD Mining to bring 200 temporary workers to B.C. for its proposed Murray River coal mine. Among those concerns is that foreign workers will be hired instead of British Columbians, and labour groups have insisted there are local workers who can do the job. Alyson Queen, press secretary for the federal human resources minister, says the department has launched an investigation to determine whether the applications for foreign worker permits met all the requirements.

Cyber-bully fears run high: poll Black Press

About 23 per cent of B.C. teens have been victims of cyber-bullying, according to a new survey of parents. The online poll of 504 B.C. adults by West6S Marketing found widespread concern about cyber-bullying, with 89 per cent very or somewhat concerned. Eight per cent of adults surveyed also said they’ve been cyber-bullied and that rose to 12 per cent among heavy users of Facebook or Twitter. More mainstream use of social media means cyber-bullying is becoming more widespread and not just limited to online chat rooms, according to 6S Marketing president Chris Breikss. “Considering the speed of social media

and its availability – through smart phones, tablets – harassment has become inescapable,” he said. “It turns into a round-the-clock nightmare. The internet’s immediacy gives bullies a perception of power and the sheer volume of these unmoderated interactions can have devastating consequences.” About 46 per cent of B.C. adults use Facebook daily – rising to 64 per cent of 18- to 34-year-olds – and levels are higher in households with teens. Sixteen per cent use Twitter daily (37 per cent in the 18-34 group.) Fifty-eight per cent of parents surveyed said they believed their teens were the victims of “traditional” bullying.

Drivers cautioned about time change Bl ack Press

Motorists are being urged to drive with extra caution as they adjust to the fall time change that brings darker evening commutes, often along with worse weather and visibility. The turning back of the clocks at the end of Daylight Savings Time (DST) on Saturday night (Nov. 3) in theory gives an extra hour of sleep, but an ICBC survey found 30 per cent of drivers squander it by staying up later. That can worsen drivers’ concentration, alertness behind the wheel and reaction time to hazards. “There is a 10 per cent increase in the average number of crashes in the Lower Mainland during the late afternoon commute in the two weeks following the end of DST compared to the two weeks prior to the change,” ICBC psychologist Dr. John Vavrik said. “We rationalize that




extra hour – many of us think that since we’re going to get an additional hour of sleep we can stay awake longer or drive home later, but we actually end up feeling more tired and less alert,” Vavrik said. Sleep quality can also be disrupted due to more nighttime restlessness, he added.

Party dinner celebrates 10 per cent shift Townsman Staff

The Kootenay East NDP riding association had the 10 per cent shift in mind at their recent fund-raising “Local Food Harvest” dinner. Organizers said that in a month when two speakers have been to Cranbrook to talk about the 10 per cent shift concept, this dinner was a practical example of how to support the local economy by supporting local suppliers and small business. The 10 per cent shift movement asks people to keep at least 10 per cent of their spending to local products and business. “Buying and eating

local food is good for our local economy, the environment and for our bodies and souls,” candidate Norma Blissett told the crowd. “We had a regional conference back in the spring and talked about a variety of local initiatives that were happening in the Kootenays. Part of that was about supporting local agriculture and so when it came to organizing a fund raising dinner we went with the concept of a local harvest supper, where we could support a wonderful local chef and eat healthy, tasty local food, decrease our impact on the environment, sup-

Grade 2 kids ski free Submitted

Husky Energy and Resorts of the Canadian Rockies (RCR) are again offering the Husky Grade 2 FunPass program. The program provides young skiers with a complimentary Season Pass valid at RCR ski resorts, including Fernie, Kicking Horse Mountain, Kimberley, and Nakiska. The program offers the opportunity for youth to learn and build their skiing and snowboarding skills, while encouraging a healthy, active, family lifestyle. “Getting kids active with their families in the great outdoors is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle,”

says Bill Bennett, Minster of Community, Sport & Cultural Development. “It’s great to see Husky Energy and RCR leading a program that promotes outdoor recreational activity among our youth and making skiing and snowboarding available to all Grade 2 students.” To qualify for the program, children must be in Grade 2 (or born in 2005). A copy of a birth certificate, current Grade 2 report card, or last year’s Grade 1 report card, must be provided for a pass to be issued. There is a $20 processing fee for the pass, which is a saving of over $500 off a regular pass price for a child.

No, no, don’t write me any nasty letters about your aunt on Cortez Island. I know island dwellers are great people. Unfortunately, transporting these great people from one island to another to the mainland is costing a great deal of money that BC Ferries doesn’t have. So they want to consult with coastal people and island dwellers about how much pain they are prepared to put up with in order to continue to live a two-ferry trip from the mainland. The government consultation will ask residents if they support cable ferries, passenger-only service, bridges, property-tax increases or fuel-tax hikes to support ferry service.

It’s a difficult situation. You can’t ask people to move simply because the only route off their island is too expensive to service. You can’t build a bridge linking every island, although there are a few places a bridge may be the answer. But one thought keeps occurring to me. People who depend solely on ferry service for access to the mainland are paying through the nose for it. And people who have alternate routes but may enjoy a ferry ride across, say Kootenay Lake, on a lovely summer day, don’t pay a dime. BC’s interior ferry routes are free.

Light and Sound Re: “Living — For eternity or in the here and now?” (Yme Woensdregt): The existence of God can be proven only to oneself, as we are different in levels of consciousness. When IT descends to the material world, it goes through our consciousness and can be seen as a light and heard as a sound. When the experience is given, is subjective and beyond the description of human words. To experience the Light and Sound of God, one must go through a series of personal disciplines to purify the mind. It is done through a series of spiritual exercises, as known to the followers of an ancient teaching called Eckankar. There is no guarantee that you will experience the Light and Sound of God, but the question is how much you desire it. We are all vehicles of God through our consciousness, whether we are aware of it or not. Eckankar was introduced to the world in 1965. This letter is not intended to promote this teaching, but understand that only man can teach man in the material world. If you want God’s existence proven to you, search for the higher teaching. The spiritual exercise is a means to open your third eye, to see beyond the

human senses. The proof is given only if you deserve it. As with everything in the material world, to deserve it you must work for it. Edito A. Chy Cranbrook

Project Red Ribbon MADD Canada celebrates its 25th anniversary of our largest and longest-running public awareness campaign on Thursday, Nov. 1, with Project Red Ribbon Day. Project Red Ribbon is designed to combat impaired driving during the holidays. The red ribbon is a symbol of a person’s commitment to drive safe and sober during the holiday season and throughout the year, and also serves as a reminder to other motorists to drive sober. The small but powerful ribbon symbolizes the wearers’ commitment to sober driving and reminds us all that the deaths and injuries resulting from impairmentrelated crashes are needless and preventable. Together with local partners, area businesses, the MADD Cranbrook is asking residents of the East Kootenay to show their commitment to sober driving this

holiday season by tying a red ribbon to their vehicles, key chains, purses, briefcases and backpacks. Red ribbons are available from MADD Kimbrook at 250-432-9590 or , the MADD Canada web site, Allstate Insurance Company of Canada office and local participating retailers City of Cranbrook, The Drive FM/ B-104, Bear’s Eatery.

Snow shovelling Thank you for your article on snow shovelling in Monday’s paper — as one that walks around town I appreciate it when the sidewalk is clear of snow and ice. I’m fortunate enough to be able to shovel our sidewalk but many people are not able; however, if those of us who are able shovelled our neighbours’ (two to the left and two to the right) sidewalks I’m sure we would have virtually all of Cranbrook’s walks shovelled.

Sam Reinhart to suit up for Team WHL in Super Series TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay Ice forward Sam Reinhart has been named to Team WHL for one game in the upcoming Subway Super Series in the middle of November. Reinhart will head down to Vancouver for the opening game of the WHL’s turn in the Super Series—a stretch of six games where a squad of Russian junior players tours across Canada, challenging a team of all-stars in each of the three CHL major-junior leagues. Vancouver will host the first game on Nov. 14, followed by a second game in Victoria the next night. Reinhart will also get to lace up his skates alongside his older brother, Griffin, a defenceman with the Edmonton Oil Kings who was selected fourth overall in this year’s NHL Draft by the New York Islanders. “In the summer, we get to play together, but it’s been a while since we’ve played on the same team,” said Sam, “so it’s going to be nice

playing with him and not having to go against him.” Griffin will skate in both games, as the Super Series is billed as a way for scouts to assess talent level for the World Junior Championships in December. Curtis Lazar, Eric Comrie and Sam Reinhart are the only 1995born players on the roster. Lazar and Comrie will play in both games, while Reinhart will only appear in one contest. Adam Lowry and Graham Black with the Swift Current Broncos were both named to Team WHL as well. Both came through Cranbrook on Friday with their squad, defeating the Ice 5-2 at Western Financial Place. Lowry, who captains the Broncos, will skate in both games, while Black will appear in the final affair on Nov. 15 in Victoria. “I think it’s a thrill every time you get nominated one of these games,” said Lowry, 19. “You get to play with some of the

best players in the league, so it’s obviously a lot of fun to be able to be a part of this and huge honour.” Lowry knows Hockey Canada will be watching everyone, and he hopes he can perform well enough in the two games as well as with his home squad. “It’s definitely the goal of every player to play at the highest level and the World Juniors is probably the pinnacle of junior hockey,” Lowry said. “Coming into this year, you want to have a good start to the season, try to impress Hockey Canada.” Black, another 19-year-old, is making his first appearance on Team WHL, as his nomination came out of the blue, he said. “It’s unbelievable. It’s a dream come true, it’s what you think of when you’re growing up as a kid, playing in front of that many people,” Black said, “and playing for a team that’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I hope I make the best of it.”

NHL players given escrow cheques CHRIS JOHNSTON Canadian Press

T O R O N T O — Locked-out NHL players had the pain of missing their first full pay period offset Tuesday when they received last season’s escrow cheque. Players were returned 7.98 per cent of what they earned last year, plus interest, one day before their second paycheque of the 201213 season would have been due, according to a spokesman for the NHL Players’ Association The escrow payments amount to about $80,000 for every million dollars a player earned— before deductions. For example, New York Rangers forward Brad Richards grossed approximately $960,000 after being the league’s highest-paid player last season. Under the terms of the expired collective bargaining agreement, NHL players had a portion of their salaries de-

ducted throughout the season and placed into an escrow account. Once the final accounting for a year was completed, which ensured the correct percentage of revenue was paid out in salaries, players were refunded accordingly. Tuesday’s escrow payment came at an important time with the lockout set to eliminate another pay cycle. Players also missed a cheque on Oct. 15, but that would only have covered four days of work. The paycheque they were to have been given Wednesday would have been for a full halfmonth period. NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr met with a group of players in Minnesota on Monday night and acknowledged in an interview with the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that some of his constituents are concerned about lost wages that are mounting during the lockout.

“But that doesn’t mean you make a bad agreement because of it,’’ Fehr told the newspaper. The NHL’s labour talks have been on hold since Oct. 18, when the NHLPA countered a league offer with three proposals of its own. Each of those was quickly rejected. Since then, a leagueimposed deadline to play a full season passed without further talks and the NHL cancelled all games through Nov. 30. The Jan. 1 Winter Classic outdoor game is expected to be wiped off the schedule later this week. Superstorm Sandy forced the NHL to close its New York headquarters on Monday and Tuesday, but deputy commissioner Bill Daly indicated that it didn’t affect the bargaining process. However, he added in an email that there was no progress to report on the labour front.

TOURNAMENT TITLE: The Mount Baker junior boys volleyball team takes a minute to celebrate with the championship trophy after capturing the title during a home volleyball tournament over the weekend.

Wild find success on the court TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The junior volleyball teams at Mount Baker were successful over the weekend, as the girls and boys both captured the first place crown. The girls, which have enough players for two teams, even clashed against each other for an all-Mount Baker final, with Team

Black coming out on top for the win. The boys ended up beating a team from Sparwood in their final match to earn their first place. The young men played in a four-team pool, before heading into playoffs, where they rattled off three

straight wins for the championship. “They’re a good crew of guys,” said head coach Herb Tepper. “For the most part, everyone executed the game plan, everyone had goals they wanted to reach.” Tepper has been working with the team for the last three years,

and said everything they’ve learned is starting to click. The tournament win shows that, he added. “The biggest thing is their commitment to the system that I’ve been trying to teach them the last few years,” said Tepper. “They’re starting to demonstrate everything they’ve picked up because of that commitment.”

MIAMI — LeBron James held his index finger aloft, then turned and took a walk nine years in the making. A few moments later, a championship ring— finally—was his. James and the Miami Heat celebrated their NBA title once again Tuesday night, with the ring-and-banner ceremony replete with an indoor fireworks show that immediately preceded their season opener against the Boston Celtics. NBA Commissioner David Stern handed Heat owner Micky Arison the first ring of the night, and Arison handed the others out to executives, coaches and players. James went last, as the crowd roared for the reigning NBA MVP. “It’s not given,’’ James said earlier Tuesday. “These moments are not

given.’’ Stern gave brief remarks to the crowd, starting his address by mentioning “those who were affected’’ by Hurricane Sandy, which struck the East Coast earlier this week. (Stern misspoke and referred to the storm Hurricane Katrina, though his point was clear.) He congratulated Heat executives and coaches, then lauded Miami’s players. “And congratulations to the Miami Heat fans,’’ Stern said. The only player to address the crowd was veteran Mike Miller, who spoke after warmups. “We want to thank you guys so much for all your support,’’ Miller said. “Without you guys, a night like tonight’s not possible. The journey that starts tonight is going to be even more challenging, so we’re going to need your passion, your support and

your energy even more. Enjoy the game tonight and let it fly.’’ The rings had the words “All In’’ on one side, and “Family’’ underneath two images of the Larry O’Brien Trophy on the other. James hugged Stern briefly as the commissioner said a few words, then got a few words from Arison before checking out the box that held his newest bauble. Players posed for a quick photo as the banner started being raised, then James and others took their rings out to examine the detail. He touched the banner as it rose behind him, then went back to checking out the ring. Soon, they were put away, the lights came on, and the season started. “I think we all know what another year’s all about,’’ James said. “We know what our longterm goal is. But we’re

not going to take any short cuts. It’s a process. It’s always been that way for us.’’ The pursuit of a title is what drove James every year since joining the NBA in 2003, and he had been close twice, ultimately falling in his first two trips to the NBA Finals. His breakthrough came last June, and James capped his stellar post-season with a triple-double in Game 5 of the finals against Oklahoma City, as the Heat capped off the second title in franchise history. “I’m not going to take this moment for granted,’’ James said. “It doesn’t happen to everyone. I know the history of the game. I am going to live in the moment. Not going to sit here and say I’m not. It’s a special moment for not only our team, for our organization, for the city, whoever’s a Miami Heat fan, our families,

everything. We’ll live in the moment, but we also have some other business to take care of as well.’’ In the long term, that means another title. In the short term, that meant getting ready for Boston. Miami’s first ring night was an unmitigated disaster _ a 108-66 loss to the Chicago Bulls after the 2006 championship jewelry was issued. The Heat were on the other end of a banner blowout last Christmas in Dallas, where in a finals rematch they ran out to a 35-point lead shortly after halftime. The Heat were clearly inspired by having a chance to put a damper on Dallas’ day. And they expected the Celtics to feel the same way, after Miami ousted Boston in last season’s Eastern Conference finals and then lured Ray Allen away in a free-agency coup over the summer.

Argonauts to rest Ricky Ray in regular season finale Dan R alph Canadian Press

wednesday, october 31, 2012

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The Toronto Argonauts’ reward to Ricky Ray for being named the CFL’s offensive player of the week is time off. Ray received the CFL’s weekly honour Tuesday after throwing four TD passes in a 31-26 road win over Saskatchewan on Saturday. Toronto (8-9) locked up second spot in the East Division with the victory as well as home-field advantage for the conference semifinal Nov. 11. With a playoff spot sewn up, Ray will watch the Argos’ regular-season final Thursday night against the arch-rival Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Backup Jarious Jackson will start against Hamilton with youngsters Trevor Harris and Zach Collaros also scheduled to play. “It’s a short week and he (Ray) isn’t 100 per cent healthy,’’ Argos head coach Scott Milanovich said regarding why Ray won’t play. “I believe it’s my job to get

him into the playoff game as healthy as he can possibly be. “I think that’s in the best interest of our football team.’’ Milanovich’s decision is certainly good news for desperate Hamilton (6-11). The Ticats must beat Toronto and hope the Calgary Stampeders defeat the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday night to make the playoffs. If Hamilton loses, Edmonton will qualify for the playoffs, either crossing over into the East Division or finishing third in the West. The Eskimos (7-11) need a win over Calgary and a B.C. victory over Saskatchewan on Saturday night to take the No. 3 Western playoff seed. The Riders can clinch third with either an Eskimos loss or by downing the defending Grey Cup-champion Lions, who have already cemented first in the West. If Saskatchewan and Edmonton finish tied, the Esks will get the higher position based on having won the season series.

Kamloops to host its second Canadian men’s curling championship in 2014

KAMLOOPS, B.C. — Kamloops, B.C., has been awarded the Canadian men’s curling championship for the second time. The Canadian Curling Association announced Tuesday that the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier will be played March 1-9 at the Interior Savings Centre. Kamloops last hosted the Brier in 1996, when Manitoba’s Jeff Stoughton stole the victory against Alberta’s Kevin Martin in an extra end. This will mark just the seventh time that British Columbia has hosted the Brier since the championship began in 1927 in Toronto. The 2013 Tim Hortons Brier will be held March 2-10 at Rexall Place in Edmonton. Canadian Press

ARIES (March 21-April 19) By midday, a situation will energize you, and you might feel tense and excited simultaneously. Be sure to cross off the errands on your to-do list. A misunderstanding could happen if you move too quickly. Clear up this matter ASAP. Tonight: Out and about. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The unexpected occurs, which forces you to pull back and center yourself. This time of reflection ultimately allows you to gain. You will touch base with reality when you finally decide to deal with the various aspects of this situation. Tonight: Share some of your treats. No tricks, please. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) As the day goes on, you feel more empowered. You’ll communicate on a deep level and share more of your ideas. Others respond, but perhaps not in the way you anticipated. This is particularly true for one key person in your life. Tonight: Go with last-minute changes.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Use the morning to the max, and do what you must in order to assume a low profile in the afternoon. A discussion might need to be repeated at a later date, even if it seems like the other party currently understands the message. Someone you look up to could surprise you. Tonight: Act like a ghost and vanish. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Handle your responsibilities early in the day, as meetings, interpersonal interactions and phone calls will keep you very busy. Indulge in this sociable afternoon -- it’s nearly as if it was created just for you. Tonight: At a favorite haunt with your friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might want to think through someone’s demands. A partner’s unexpected behavior also could take a toll on you.

mands a lot of your attention. Confusion surrounds you; do not take someone’s behavior personally. Indulge a loved one at a distance, and make plans to visit. Tonight: Last-minute thoughts about trickor-treating might encourage a change in plans. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Deal with someone’s requests. You could be aggravated on some level, but it would be worth it to step back and evaluate your mood before taking action. Try not to look at the incident itself, but instead at your authentic feelings for this person. Tonight: Surprises happen left and right. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Those around you are full of themselves right now, which could force you to back off some. These people simply have strong personalities, but it might feel like you are on the receiving end of a power play. You just might want to go along with the program. Tonight: Go along with someone else’s idea. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your creative ideas mark the morning. By the afternoon, it is business as usual. Take time

with a parent or boss who might need some help. You want to be there for this person, but you also want to get home to greet the little gremlins that will come by. Tonight: Consider an unexpected offer. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Confusion forces your hand in a situation. A misunderstanding helps you initiate a long-overdue conversation. Let your imagination run wild, and you could find that many doors will open up as a result. A brainstorming session demonstrates your creativity. Tonight: Let the good times roll. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might want to spend more time at home or with a family member. Even if you have to work, you still can plan on making time with this person afterward. He or she will be delighted by your actions. Tonight: You do not need to go far to have a haunting experience.

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: In the 20 years I’ve been with my partner, I’ve had suspicions that he’s cheated. Whenever I confront him, he becomes angry and tries to turn it around on me. I finally decided I had to know, so I bought mini digital voice recorders and left them on in the house whenever I’d leave for work. Lo and behold, my suspicions were correct. My problem now is how to confront him with the proof. I’m not proud that I’ve been spying on him for weeks. But he would never own up to his cheating unless it was indisputable. I know he will be angry with me, but what he has done is totally wrong. He keeps telling me we need to work on us. How is that possible when he makes a phone call to his “girlfriend” every morning after I leave for work? This is making me physically ill. -- Had To Know Dear Had: Your boyfriend’s behavior made you suspicious, so you took the step of finding proof. And you found it. Stop berating yourself for doing a little private detective work. Your boyfriend is cheating. He will continue to make excuses and try to put the blame on you. Tell him what you discovered, show him the proof, and tell him it’s over. And mean it. Dear Annie: Christmas is just around the corner. Teachers appreciate the gifts from their students, but I know many teachers who spend their own money on classroom needs. Please suggest that students consider giving teachers a gift card to places that offer school supplies and also for coffee shops, microwave soups and other consumables. Similarly, our senior citizens could benefit from practical items like store and restaurant gift cards, postage stamps, etc. They do not need any more knickknacks to gather dust. -- J.M. Dear J.M.: You have made some excellent, sensible suggestions, and we hope those who are giving holiday gifts to teachers and seniors will keep them in mind. Dear Annie: I felt a need to respond to “Enough,” the 57-year-old male who has been divorced for 26 years and hasn’t dated for the past three. He is adamant that he will date only women he finds physically attractive (translation: not fat), but his family feels he is cutting himself off from meeting some very nice women. I am a 52-year-old female, divorced for two years and built like a plus-size model. I am intelligent, witty, neat, well-dressed, make a decent living and am told I am pretty. I had one blind date with a man I met through an online dating service. We had emailed each other for a week and chatted on the phone several times. I figured we had had such great conversations that my looks wouldn’t matter. I was wrong. He said there was no “spark.” I then tried to hire a professional matchmaker, and when I described myself as “Rubenesque,” she said she has a hard time finding men among her clientele willing to date women who wear a size larger than 12. While I have no interest in a man who would summarily dismiss me as a potential date solely based on my size, I am beginning to wonder where all the real men are. There have to be some decent guys out there who are not so shallow and ignorant. So far they appear to be pretty scarce. -- Plus-Sized Good Catch Dear Catch: In all fairness, being attracted to someone is not insignificant. But just as beautiful people can seem ugly if they have rotten personalities, a person of any size can become attractive by discovering a kind, warm, funny, intelligent human being inside. The problem is, few people are willing to let those relationships blossom, giving outward appearance more “weight” than it deserves. Dear Readers: Happy Halloween. Please dress your trick-or-treaters in flame-retardant costumes that don’t obstruct walking or vision, and be sure to accompany them.

In Memoriam CHRIS A MAKELKI (Oct 13, 1933 - Oct 28, 2011) Chris passed away 1 year ago in White Rock BC, after battling Dementia, surrounded by his daughter Diane (& Brian), son Brent (& Donna), plus Grandaughters; Kayli, Elyse, Cheyanne and Breena. Chris was predeceased by his wife Phyllis in 2004. Chris moved his family to Cranbrook in 1972 from Nelson (formerly Saskatoon SK) and worked as a heavy duty mechanic. He always joked about â&#x20AC;&#x153;just pulling wrenchesâ&#x20AC;? but he was highly skilled and admired for his abilities. Chris had many great friends and co-workers in Cranbrook and valued meeting the boys for coffee after retirement. Chris and Phyllis moved to Chilliwack in 1996 and made some new friends but the ones in Cranbrook were very dear to their hearts. Both Chris and Phyillis were layed to rest together at the Sunneyside Cemetery in South Surrey BC close to family.

YOUR AD in the BULLETIN has staying power. has selling power!

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.
