Seniors give a nod to Cranbrook

City recognized for hosting B.C. Seniors Games in 1993 as event celebrates 25th anniversary SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Back in 1993, Cranbrook hosted 1,500 athletes for the B.C. Seniors Games. Today, the city is being recognized with a special commemorative banner, handed out to each host community on the 25th anniversary of the Games. “The B.C. Seniors Games Society is a provincial body for promoting seniors awareness and seniors in sports,” explained Hugh Hambleton, secretary treasurer of Zone 7 for the

Games at a special presentation to Cranbrook council on Wednesday, October 31. These days, around 4,000 athletes aged 55 and older take part in the B.C. Seniors Games in sports including soccer, swimming, tennis, hockey, curling, darts, bridge and lawn bowling. “As part of the 25th anniversary, each city that has hosted is given a banner for taking part,” said Hambleton.

COs to go after Marysville cougar CAROLYN GRANT

A Conservation Officer with hounds is going after a cougar that has now been seen three times in Marysville in the last week. The big cat has been seen twice on 310th Avenue and once on Main Street. It has also been seen taking a household pet. Conservation Officer Joe Carravetta says it’s important that people call in sightings like that because in order to send a CO with cougar hounds out to get a cougar, they need a history on the cat.

“They are difficult to trap. They are there to hunt to kill. Generally in town they are going after house pets, and deer as well.” Joe Caravetta “If we get a call that’s fresh, we’ll send out the officer with cougar hounds,” Carravetta said. “If there’s that many sightings, we’ll send him out today.”

He says they don’t trap cougars for transport elsewhere. If they are hunting in town, they will be put down. “They are difficult to trap. They are there to hunt to kill. Generally in town they are going after house pets, and deer as well. There are lots of deer in Kimberley.” Carravetta says that actually spotting a cougar that many times in unusual. “Seeing them during the day is not common. They generally hunt at night. If they are being seen taking a pet, that cat has got to go.”


I AM LION, HEAR ME ROAR!: Landon got in the Halloween spirit at the Tamarack Centre on October 31. The eight-month-old trick-or-treated with his parents dressed like a lion. The mall welcomed kids to enjoy some indoor trick-or-treating and activities on a rainy Halloween afternoon. There was face painting and story time, and of course treats to be had at each business within the centre.

Novartis back on the market ANNALEE GR ANT Townsman Staff

Health Canada has lifted its suspension of the flu vaccines produced by Novartis as of Wednesday. Here in the Interior HealthAuthority, vaccines continued as usual and only 10 per cent of vaccines used in the program were effected by the suspension. Medical health officer Dr. Trevor Corneil said the vaccine was never unsafe, but was in fact pulled from the vaccination program as a precautionary measure.

“Getting the flu shot will keep you from passing on those three very nasty flu bugs that are going around this year.” Dr. Trevor Corneil “It’s important that people who have already gotten the shot know the shots are fine,” he said. IH actually relies more on another vaccine called Vaxigrip for their flu program, which allowed them to continue to vaccinate as usual. Corneil said the problem arose last week when authorities in Europe noticed particulate matter was collecting in the Novartis vaccines Agriflu and Fluad. The decision was made to suspend the vaccine for an investigation into whether the clumping matter was safe or not. “The Euopean governments said, ‘well, let’s take a precautionary approach to this,’” Corneil said. “It was completely precautionary, which was the appropriate thing to do.” In the time between Friday, October 26 when the vaccine was

suspended and Wednesday, October 31 when it was reinstated, Corneil said Health Canada did its own investigation. All evidence from Novartis trials and records of patient reactions were poured over, and no adverse reactions were found. “No one had had any adverse reactions to that shot,” Corneil said. “There was none outside of the normal there.” Corneil said it is not unusual to see clumping material in vaccines of any kind, and health care providers will avoid catching that matter when they draw a needle for injection. The particulates form when the components of the vaccine are combined and the needle is introduced to the vaccine fluid. “It usually looks like little, very tiny white flakes,” he said. The clumps are safe to inject, Corneil said, but health care providers will avoid them to keep the needle clear. With Novartis back on the market for flue vaccines, Corneil is urging people to go get their shot, and to think of others. “It’s not about protecting yourself, it’s about protecting others,” he said. Some people infected with the flu can have no symptoms, but can pass it on to others with weaker immune systems – but it also protects those with healthier immune systems from missing work or other engagements due to a seasonal flu. “Getting the flu shot will keep you from passing on those three very nasty flu bugs that are going around this year.” For more information on where to get your flu shot, visit www.


The City of Cranbrook accepted a commemorative banner on Wednesday, October 31, for hosting the B.C. Seniors Games in 1993.

brook, adding that finding 2,500 volunteers to bring the event together would be tough.

“It would be a huge advantage for not only the economy but for the exposure to the community as a great place to live,” said Mayor Stetski.

He and Councillor Gerry Warner accepted the banner during a special meeting at city hall on Wednesday.

Canfor reopens mill in Radium Hot Springs Townsman Staff

Canfor Corp. has reopened its sawmill in Radium Hot Springs, B.C., spending $38.5 million to upgrade the operating and build a new planer mill. The company said once the mill is operating at full capacity next year it will produce 240 million board feet annually and employ 144 people. The mill was closed three and a half years ago, in May, 2009. In November of 2011, Tembec announced that it was selling its Canal Flats and Elko sawmills, and the associated 1.1 million cubic metres of lumber and cutting rights, to Canfor for $60 million. About 455 employees were included in the transaction, with 90 of those located in the head office in Cranbrook. Tembec still owns

the Skookumchuck pulp mill. After the purchasing the Tembec assets, Canfor said it was investing $38.5 million on the Radium facility, creating a new planer facility, the installation of a biomass energy system, and modifications to the existing sawmill. Another $1.5 million was to be spent on the Canal Flats mill to improve drying capacity. “These investments are critical to support the restart of our Radium division,” said Canfor President and CEO Don Kayne at the time. “The fibre in the Kootenay region is amongst the best in the world, and these investments will secure our ability to make top-quality products here to supply global markets.” The reopening comes as the U.S. hous-

Amount of cocaine seized in Marysville bust C AROLYN GR ANT Daily Bulletin

A Kimberley resident has been arrested for suspicion of cocaine tracking, says Kimberley RCMP Cpl. Chris Newel. The cocaine was seized in Marysville after officers gained sufficient evidence that a male and female were involved in the trafficking of drugs. “A search warrant was obtained for the male’s residence which was executed right after the arrest,” Newel said. “At total of six grams of what was held out to be cocaine, in two separate packages, was seized.” The 38-year-old male is currently in custody facing charges of Pos-

session of a Controlled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking. In addition he has several outstanding arrest warrants from BC and Saskatchewan and is being held for court. The female has been released and may be charged at a later date, Newel said. This follows an arrest last Wednesday, October 24, of a 58-year-old Halpin Street resident for suspicion of cocaine trafficking. Newel says that there isn’t a special drug task force operating right now, it’s just good police work.

So you might as well make a deal, and the only plausible one is that the Moros (Filipino Muslims) get a broad degree of self-government in the areas where they are the majority. There will be a referendum in 2015 to settle the size and shape of the new “Bangsamoro” region, but it will remain part of the Philippines, and Manila will retain control of defence, foreign policy, and the broad outlines of economic policy. So two wars down (probably), and how many more to go? No more than a dozen or so of comparable scale, most of them in Africa and the Middle East. And whether they are internal wars like Colombia and the Philippines or wars between local nationalists and foreign occupiers, they tend to end the same way. There are exceptions, of course, like the Sri Lankan government’s recent victory over the Tamil Tigers, but in most cases the wars get closed down when both sides recognise that a decisive victory is impossible. Or rather, they get shut down when the participants finally recognise what has already been plain to most outsiders for decades. The extra time is required because the people directly involved have already paid such a price for that elusive victory that they just cannot bear to admit to themselves that their sacrifices were wasted. Does this have any relevance to the horrors that are now unfolding in Syria? A great deal, I’m sorry to say. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist based in London

he original plan had been for the four of them, two couples, to go together and see if they could get up Mount Dingley, up above The Nine Basins, at the head of Wildhorse Creek but only two of them that time made the climb. The first one to discover that she might not be going on this expedition was Dagma. She’d been having trouble with ‘her waterworks’, as she described her problem, and her G.P. had got an appointment for her with a visiting specialist on the day of the planned climb. She, however, urged her spouse of thirty years or so to go anyway; she’d be all right; he’d enjoy the company. Jake thought about it. Then Brandon announced that his partner had got sick and wanted him, Brandon, to go to Calgary for the conference. Naturally, this business chore coincided with the planned hike. His wife, Cameron, was furious. She reckoned she barely had a true day off more than a couple of times a year and she was going up Dingley, alone if necessary. Brandon knew from long experience that it was useless to argue with Cameron and so worked on Jake to accompany his wife before she did something harebrained up in the Rockies. They could use

her fancy new four-wheel drive utility. Jake wasn’t keen. In fact, Jake slept almost all the way up the Wildhorse road, or pretended to, but when Cameron crossed the creek and started up the badly eroded skid trails, he was wide awake, and hanging on. The woman drove skilfully and manoeuvered the new vehicle over the washouts, the bumps and the fallen trees. Jake admired her skill but wasn’t going to admit to the fact. In fact, he was hoping she’d make a mess of things and have to Peter be rescued. Warland In fact, Cameron drove successfully and turned the vehicle around. She hopped out, all eager to get going. Jake stalled. He wasn’t sure of the way to climb Dingley and didn’t want to make a fool of himself. He poked around for a while and eventually found a bit of a track and set off at a cracking pace, but Cameron followed close behind him, then overtook him. Jake felt a little uncomfortable as they followed the bitty trail through the forest. He didn’t know what to talk about. With other guys, there was always past hunting trips, fishing expeditions plus tons of dirty jokes: macho stuff. Cameron, however, felt light-headed and a trifle silly. She was away from the laboratory where she had been spending too much of her life for too many years. She walked fast and noted that her breathing was fine and that her heart was doing well.

When they emerged from the trail, they passed through the willow thicket, Jake following Cameron and, because of his greater height, noticed the backside of the retreating grizzly. He said nothing and hopped over the tiny creek after the woman. Jake felt that Cameron walked purposefully, probably thinking aerobics rather than aesthetics. She was going to the top of the mountain. He, a one-time hunter and amateur geologist and biologist, was enjoying the journey aesthetically. The peak really didn’t matter. Her ladyship, eyes fixed on the summit of the peak, charged on up the loose scree towards the higher basin. She had her eyes fixed on the summit of her ambition. When they crested the ridge, they were almost blown off their feet and forced to crawl to the summit. Jake, paused, fascinated by a flock of birds that was struggling unsuccessfully to cross the top against the gale, and then, sitting a while in the wind, endeavoured to count the mountain goats on the neighbouring mountain. Cameron was asleep in the lee of a block of limestone on the very summit of her achievement. Jake unearthed his lunch. Eventually they ate their lunches in silence then they headed downward and homeward, she pacing herself aerobically and he, with his eyes open for the grizzly, aesthetically.

Wild hope to close season on high note TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Mount Baker Wild lost a 49-6 decision to the visiting South Kamloops Titans last weekend, but there was reason to celebrate on the sidelines as the Wild scored their first touchdown of the season. Wild quarterback Jeremy Stewart aired out a pass to a doublecovered Niclas Englert, who ran 66 yards for the touchdown in the third quarter.

Defensive coordinator Steve Zsillei said the team had a great firs quarter and a pretty good first half, but things opened up for the Titans in the second half, even though the Wild got their touchdown in the third quarter. “For the first half of the football game, we played excellent,” said Zsillei. “For the other half, we were tired— end of year tired.” The defence was especially sharp in the

Roughly $2 million in scholarship funds will be utilized by graduates this year.

did, because after that, they let loose with the cannons.” The Wild also did a much better job of holding onto the ball, with only one turnover, as opposed to nine from their previous game. The Wild will host the Westsyde Secondary School out of Kamloops next Saturday at 11 a.m. for the final

game of the season. It will be the last game for the Grade 12’s on the team, as well as the visiting exchange students, and Zsillei hopes that will give them extra motivation. “For maybe four or five kids, it’s their last game and the Euros, they’re all going back, so I think they’re all going to leave it out on the field,” he said.

Bantam hockey team has successful weekend in SCAHL action Submit ted

The Cranbrook Bantam AA C.P.C. (Cranbrook Pest Control) Hornets gained three of a possible four points in South Central Alberta Hockey League action this weekend, earning a 3-3 tie on the road Saturday against the Badlands Longhorns in Brooks, Alberta before boarding the bus and trekking home Sunday afternoon for a 6-2 win over the Innisfail Flyers at the Memorial Arena. The C.P.C. Hornets fought off some early bus-legs Saturday in Brooks as the Longhorns outshot the Hornets 16-10 in the first period, only to come up empty as the teams were scoreless after one period. In the second the Hornets opened the scoring when Shawn Kiedyk notched his 4th of the season with Gareth Osmar and Chase Leroux adding the assists. 90 seconds later the Longhorns tied it and then took the lead at the 12-minute mark before Hornet forward James Rota knotted the score at two on a breakaway to send the two teams into the third period deadlocked. The Hornets then

got into some serious penalty trouble at the tail-end of the second and into the third period, giving the Longhorns two, 5-on-3 power play opportunities, only to kill them off before giving up a shorthanded goal halfway through the third period. With the Longhorns up 3-2 the Hornets surrendered yet another 5-on-3 late on the game, which they managed to kill off, only to go down a man yet again with less than two minutes left. With 44 seconds left in the game Osmar notched his second point of the game with his 6th goal of the season, stripping the puck of a Longhorn D-man at their blueline and then scoring on a low wrist-shot, stickside, to salvage the tie. Caden McCormack was stellar in stopping 33 of 36 shots as the Hornets amassed 66 penalty minutes – including three, ten-minute misconducts for not having their mouthguards completely in place and another ten when some displeasure was voiced - to the Longhorns’ 12. On Sunday the North Division’s Innis-

fail Flyers visited the Memorial Arena and found themselves in trouble early. Four, first period goals by Korbyn Chabot, Rylan D’Etcheverrey, Gareth Osmar and Tyler Van Steinburg gave the Hornets a commanding 4-0 lead after one period. The Flyers got one back in the second but it was as close as they would come as Osmar and Chabot added two more in the third – chasing Flyers starter Lane Brann from the nets in the process – before settling for a 6-2 win. Robert Nickell stopped 22 of 24 shots to earn the win. The C.P.C. Hornets improved to 5-4-3 on the season, good for 13 points in the SCAHL’s South Division and second place behind Medicine Hat. The club now enters a break in the SCAHL schedule and will host an exhibition doubleheader Saturday and Sunday against the Spokane Bantam AA Chiefs. Saturday night the Hornets will entertain the Chiefs at the Memorial Arena at 6PM and on Sunday at Noon at Western Financial Place.

CARSON, Calif. — The road to the site of the Vancouver Whitecaps’ playoff debut is lined with palm trees. There is no barbed wire, nothing is crumbling, the modern washrooms do not threaten to churn one’s innards and no extended national holiday has been declared. The Home Depot Center in suburban Los Angeles, where the Whitecaps will become the first Canadian team to compete in Major League Soccer’s postseason on Thursday, is much friendlier than the scene of an infamous Canadian national men’s team loss in Honduras. “It’s not really an intimidating atmosphere, but it’s pretty nice,’’ Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie said of the surroundings Wednesday. “It’s a nice field, nice stadium. I think it’ll probably be a smaller crowd because of it being a mid-week

game.’’ Canada’s men’s team suffered a humiliating 8-1 loss to Honduras in a critical World Cup qualifying game on Oct. 16 at Estadio Olimpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula. While Home Depot Center is less threatening, the Whitecaps’ task might be just as daunting. The underdogs from Vancouver, who must defeat the Galaxy in a do-or-die game to advance to the second round of the post-season, are seeking their first road win and first away goal against L.A. since entering MLS last year. “It’s always a tough place to play,’’ Vancouver midfielder Dane Richards said. ``They always have a tough fan base who’s cheering for them, a lot of people. Now, it’s the playoffs, tough game. “If you lose you’re out. If you win, you’re in.’’ Vancouver goal-

keeper Brad Knighton, who is slated to make his first career playoff start, said the atmosphere is always electric when the Whitecaps visit the Galaxy. “Especially with the players that they’ve got there, the fan support they’ve got behind them, being the defending champs, so obviously it’s going to be a raucous crowd,’’ said Knighton. “We know we’ve got a ton of fans

In extra time at Stamford Bridge, Daniel Sturridge and Ramires gave Chelsea an apparently comfortable lead _ until Ryan Giggs scored his second of the night for United, and the game’s third penalty, in the 120th minute. “They showed a big,

big heart and passion and pride to not want to lose this game,’’ Chelsea manager Roberto di Matteo said. “It was a very exciting game of football to watch, typical cup game, quite open at times and a lot of mistakes from both teams because there were probably a lot of young players involved.’’ Chelsea will now travel to Leeds in the quarterfinals.

YES in the Rockies for Aboriginal youth Annalee Grant Townsman Staff

The New Relationship Trust (NRT) and Cree Nation Youth Council are bringing the Young Entrepreneurs Symposium (YES) to the Rockies this Friday. The YES Regional event is for Métis and Aboriginal youth between the ages of 19 and 30 years of age and will

give participants a great introduction to YES. One lucky winner will get the chance to attend the National YES event in Ottawa. “This is the first time NRT has taken the symposium on the road to the communities,” said Miranda Sterling, capacity and event manager for the NRT. “We want to be able to reach as many

B.C. young people as possible who sometimes aren’t able to travel to the national ones.” Youth interested in entrepreneurship will enjoy the symposium being held at the St. Eugene Mission from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday. Sterling said the hope is for more B.C. residents to attend the national conference and repre-

sent their province. “We want to have B.C. represent at the National YES coming up in November being held in Ottawa, so at each session one person wins an all expense paid trip to go to YES National,” she said. YES is sponsored by NRT and is free for Aboriginal and Métis youth. Lunch is includ-

Children are our future Workshops teach that helping young people fall in love with their hometown will let Cranbrook and Kimberley thrive

Sally MacDonald Townsman Staff

If young people like living in our city, they will find a way to stay when they grow up, buy a home and raise their family here. If they don’t, they will move away, leaving an ever larger generational gap in the community. That’s the message at two special workshops being held later this month in Cranbrook and Kimberley. Youth Engagement 101 is a joint initiative of Columbia Basin Trust, B.C. Healthy Communities, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cranbrook (BBBS). “If we don’t engage with youth, it means the death of our small community,” said Dana Osiowy, executive director of BBBS. “Statistically, if we don’t have young people in their younger years who like the community and are engaged, then

they will leave. Then they won’t be buying houses and they won’t be raising their families here and that affects us economically.” Osiowy said it is up to adults in the community to learn how to engage youth so they feel connected to their home town. The all-day workshops will be targeted at business owners, elected officials, and nonprofit workers who all have pivotal roles in engaging youth. “We are going to lead them through a training process so they can learn why youth engagement is important, and where they are doing youth engagement that is working well,” said Osiowy. The workshops will provide strategies and processes that rural communities have used and practical tools for action. “So people can go back to their boss and

their board of directors and explain why it’s important to engage with youth,” said Osiowy. “Imagine if we have a whole cadre of adults and service providers and the chamber who knew how to meaningfully engage youth. It could be awesome.” The Cranbrook Youth Engagement workshop will be held on Tuesday,

Nov. 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Manual Training School. The Kimberley workshop will be held on Wednesday, Nov.14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Kimberley Seniors Centre. To register, email or phone facilitator Michelle d’Entremont at 1-800-505-8998.

ed in the fun, informal day. Sterling said it’s a great opporunity to meet new Aboriginal youth across the country. “Anyone who is either interested in starting their own business, working independently, wanting to push themselves out of their comfort zone and who are looking to network with more Aboriginal Youth (should attend),” she said. The National YES event will be much bigger with representatives from all across the country attending. Keynote speakers in the past have included Rick Hanson and a new line-up of del-

egates and speakers is set for this November’s edition. The youth will work with their peers on challenges such as logo development and marketing challenges. In 2010 the teams got to produce their own Tim Hortons commercial with a professional production crew. “Youth are put into teams and throughout the week they are given challenges to complete – most being business related but also some fun team building ones,” Sterling said. “Throughout the week they also get to hear from many experienced speakers at panel discussions as well as some keynote

speakers.” While in Cranbrook, the NRT will also be hosting its Regional Engagement Sessions at the St. Eugene Mission. “These sessions are to provide an overview of our initiatives, and gather feedback from the communities on our future direction,” Sterling said. “It’s a really important session for NRT and we hope to see the First Nation governments and First Nation organizations around Cranbrook attend.” For more information on NRT, visit www. and visit www.YES2012. ca for more information on the symposium.

I wanted to personally THANK YOU both for enabling me to visit your community. I was so taken by the care and people I met there!  Please continue to support your shared vision (support each other when it gets tough!) but keep up your good work.  I truly believe it’s worth it!  I often believe the future counts on us to be engaged in this very effort!

Please extend my appreciation to all of my transportation helpers, Audrey & Claude, Rose and Don at CPR, Lana, Allyson and all of your staff. I was impressed before I came to your community but I leave even more confident in your direction!

As I told you, I journeyed there thinking maybe I should come to live with you OR maybe I should convince you to come here But as I shared with you I really have come to think we need to be where we are but how much our work is multiplied by the connections we have made!!

Take care, please give everyone my very best! Kathy

Government releases MLA travel costs Many Canadians rely on winning lottery or inheritance for financial plan: poll C anadian Press

VICTORIA _ For the first time, the B.C. government has released the travel expenses of MLAs after a scathing report by the auditor general said the legislature’s financial books were a mess. The expenses cover the first six months of this fiscal year, from April 1 to Sept. 30, and show B.C.’s 85 MLAs spent a total of $1.5 million. The biggest spender was New Democrat Robin Austin, who billed $53,606 during the period, followed by Liberal Bill Barisoff, the speaker of the house, whose expenses were $46,410, and Norm Macdonald, another New Democrat, who billed $45,332.

Barisoff says B.C. residents want accountability on how their tax dollars are spent, and the release of the travel expenses helps meet that expectation. But the posting of the expenses came only after Auditor General John Doyle released a report this summer, saying the financial books of the B.C. legislature were so chaotic that it was impossible to tell if money was being well spent. Doyle’s report found that MLA credit card bills are being paid without receipts and the legislative assembly hasn’t produced financial statements despite a 2007 recommendation from the previous auditor general.

TORONTO _ Onethird of Canadian respondents to a new survey admit their financial plans include counting on a future injection of good luck, either by winning the lottery or receiving a large inheritance. The poll commissioned by Credit Canada Debt Solutions and Capital One Canada found that nearly two in 10, or 18 per cent, of those polled say they believe winning the lottery will contribute to their financial plan, while one in 10 say they expect a large inheritance to help out. “It’s troubling to see so many Canadians putting more trust in the lottery than sound financial planning, but I see the effects every day in our agency,’’ said Laurie Campbell, CEO of Credit Canada Debt Solutions. “Canadians need to recognize that there is no magic solution to gaining control of their finances. It means hard work and sticking to a budget determined by income.’’ The survey comes as Canadian household debt sits at an all time high and other reports indicate many Canadians are realizing they have not saved adequately for retirement. It also found that more than two-thirds of those asked have felt anxious or lost sleep thinking about their finances in the past year and another two-thirds admitted to spending beyond their monthly budgets.

Rob Livingston, president, Capital One Canada said the findings support the need to ramp up financial literacy programs. “Overspending is a real issue for many Canadians and even though they know what to do, a quarter of us are still not confident we can stick to a monthly budget.’’ Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has been pushing Canadians to better understand their finances since creating a federal financial literacy task force in the 2009 budget. At the same time, however, the Bank of Canada has held its key lending rate _ which forms the basis for banks’ prime rates for lending _ at one per cent for last 17 consecutive rate announcements, which has contributed to an unsustainable run-up in home prices and risky levels of household debt. In a recent revision, Statistics Canada has placed household credit market debt at 163 per cent of income, about the level reached in the United States before the housing crash of 200708. The online survey of 822 Canadians was conducted by Mark Binns Consulting between August and September. The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not randomly sample the population.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have the right words to make an impression. You have a tendency to renew yourself and your thoughts. Encourage others to do the same. You could act in an unpredictable matter. Opportunities knock on your door; it is your choice whether or not to respond. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Be aware of a tendency to go overboard, especially today. Someone or something might be so tempting that you might not be able to say “no.” You don’t need to spend any money in order to impress others -- you are impressive anyway. Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You blossom, and someone responds. You could feel as if a child or a new friend is being manipulative. A loved one also might not be reliable, as you will see soon. Use your strong personality to draw in more of what you want. Tonight: All smiles. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Know what is going on behind the scenes, and deal with it as best as you can. A problem could occur in which someone you know might want to reveal his or her true feelings. You will land on your feet, no matter what. Use your intuition. Tonight: Get some extra Z’s. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Zero in on what works. You could be taken aback by a new perspective. Lie low and watch a situation evolve, as you might not be up for taking any huge risks right now. You will move when you feel more secure. A friend lets you know that he or she supports you. Tonight: In the whirlwind of the moment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Keep pushing to achieve what you want. You might have a lastminute show of support or energy. You will accomplish much more than you thought possible and feel pleased with the results. Demonstrate your caring through a card or a token of affection. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might be overwhelmed by everything that is going on around you. Listen to your instincts when

dealing with someone at a distance. This person opens you up to a lot of new opportunities. Tonight: Read between the lines. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Relate to a loved one directly, as he or she has an unusual sense of merriment and often can be rather whimsical. You enjoy being around this person, so make plans to visit in the near future. Your attitude could be affected greatly if you don’t get to spend quality time with him or her. Tonight: Dinner for two. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Others are quite dominant and lively. You could get into the quirkiness of the day. A meeting reminds you how much a friendship means to you. Others could elevate your stress level. Throw your rigidity away, and everyone will have a good time. Tonight: Accept an invitation. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Pace yourself, and don’t allow someone to upset you. Separating your personal life from your professional or outside life will only make your day-to-day routine simpler and easier. Try not to share

so much private news. Tonight: Off to the gym, or take a walk. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might not be able to greet the weekend yet, but you will act as if you are. You spontaneously could decide to throw out a project that has become rather complicated. A child or loved one gives you a reason to give in to a more selfindulgent day. Tonight: Act as if there is no tomorrow. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Stay close to home, or work from home, if possible. Others find you performing on a high level right now, even in this more relaxed situation. You might want to check out an investment that could involve your finances or a real-estate matter. Tonight: Happy at home.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I’m dating a guy who works out of town and is home every four weeks. “Jake” calls and texts often and says he misses me all the time. Here’s what bothers me: Jake always asks me how I feel about him. He says, “Do you even like me?” I think it’s because I don’t drop everything when he calls like the other women he has dated. I recently found out via Facebook that Jake went on a cruise with a woman he used to live with. She has been posting pictures of the cruise and saying how much she loves Jake. There is nothing about the cruise posted on Jake’s page. I told him about her comments. He replied that he didn’t know anything about it, and she was obviously just thanking all of the people on the cruise for their love and support. But he added that she’s a wonderful woman and they’d be in a relationship if she lived closer. I said he is being unfair to both of us, but he claims he’s not married and will continue to call me until I tell him to stop. Since then, he’s phoned a couple of times, and I refuse to take his calls. Is this a case of wanting to have your cake and eat it, too? -- Daisy Mae Dear Daisy: It sounds like it, although as a single man, he can date as many women as he likes until he makes a commitment. You thought he had made one to you, but he believed otherwise. It’s possible he was attracted to you because you didn’t fawn all over him. But that results in a stable relationship only in the movies. In real life, such men thrive on the attention, and since they rarely get enough of it from one partner, they look for it in many others. Right now, he thinks you’ll cave. If you want him to stop calling, you will have to tell him point blank. Dear Annie: I am the youngest of 10 siblings. Every summer, we share a lake house for a wonderful family reunion that extends over several days. Every year, my older brother invites an obnoxious friend to join us for the last evening’s family grill. How can I convince him that just because we are part owners doesn’t mean we can invite unwanted guests? He says it is his home and he can invite whomever he wishes. I say if he is not cooking the meal, it is not proper. The chef dislikes this guy as much as I do. Who is right? -- The Baby of the Family Dear Baby: As joint owners, you should each be able to invite guests. However, since you are all staying in the house together, it is both considerate and proper to first ask the other residents whether they object to additional company. So while your brother can invite his friend when he uses the lake house on his own, he should ask the rest of you about inviting him when you are sharing the house and the meals. Dear Annie: I am concerned about your response to “Trying” which said it was OK to tell Mom that some of the grandchildren are hurt because they aren’t receiving as much gift money as others. I think this encourages a sense of entitlement. Instead of trying to correct Mom’s behavior, I would encourage “Trying” to stop comparing gifts and value Mom’s intention to add joy to the lives of all of her family members. -- Mike in Schenectady, N.Y. Dear Mike: We disagree. The only entitlement it encourages is that Grandma should treat her grandchildren equally. If all the kids received a lesser gift, it would be fair, and the kids wouldn’t get the impression that Grandma loves some of them more than others. And we think Grandma should know this.

Lucas sells Star Wars franchise to Disney Ryan Nak ashima Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - A decade after George Lucas said Star Wars was finished on the big screen, a new trilogy is destined for theatres as The Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that it was buying Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. The seventh movie, with a working title of Episode 7, is set for release in 2015. Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. The new trilogy will carry the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia beyond Return of the Jedi, the third film released and the sixth in the saga. After that, Disney plans a new Star Wars movie every two or three years. Lucas will serve as creative consultant in the new movies. “For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next,” said Lucas, chairman and CEO of Lucasfilm Ltd. “It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers.” The Walt Disney Co. announced the blockbuster agreement to buy Lucasfilm in cash and stock Tuesday. The deal includes Lucasfilm’s prized high-tech production companies, Industrial Light & Magic and Skywalker Sound, as well as rights to the Indiana Jones franchise. Lucas was hailed as a cinematic visionary when the original Star Wars came out in 1977. But he had become an object of often-vicious ridicule by the time he released 3-D versions of all six films in the Star Wars franchise earlier this year. Die-hard Star War fans had been vilifying Lucas for years, convinced that he had become a commercial sellout and had compounded his sins by desecrating the heroic tale that he originally sought to tell. Any revision - from little things like making the Ewoks blink or bigger alterations like making a green-skinned alien named Greedo take the first shot at Han Solo in a famous bar scene - were treated as blasphemy.

The criticism grated on Lucas, who vowed never to make another Star Wars movie during an interview with The New York Times earlier this year. “Why would I make any more when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?” Lucas told the Times. Lucas, 68, was fed up by the time he released Red Tails, a movie depicting the valour of African-American pilots during the Second World War, earlier this year. He told the Times he was ready to retire from the business of making blockbusters and return to his roots as a student at USC’s film school. Kathleen Kennedy, the current co-chairman of Lucasfilm, will become the division’s president and report to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn.

cussed ideas with a couple of writers about the future movies and said Lucas would continue to have a key advisory role. “My Yoda has to be there,” she said.

George Lucas has had connections with Disney in the past, including “Star Wars” rides in Disney parks. She will serve as executive producer for the new movies. In a video posted on YouTube, Lucas said the decision to continue with the saga wasn’t inconsistent with past statements.

“I always said I wasn’t going to do any more and that’s true, because I’m not going to do any more, but that doesn’t mean I’m unwilling to turn it over to Kathy to do more,” Lucas said.

Vatican marks 500th anniversary of Sistine Chapel frescoes C anadian Press

VATICAN CITY _ Five centuries after Michelangelo's ceiling of frescoes was inaugurated in the Sistine Chapel, Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday celebrated the “symphony of figures'' contemplated during prayer. Benedict marked the anniversary by saying vespers beneath the frescoes, as his predecessor Julius II had half a millennium earlier. The pope said that contemplating the frescoes in the chapel of the Apostolic Palace renders them “more beautiful still, more authentic. They reveal all of their beauty.'' “It is as if during the liturgy, all of

this symphony of figures come to life, certainly in a spiritual sense, but inseparably also esthetically,'' the pope said. At least 10,000 people visit the site each day, raising concerns about temperature, dust and humidity affecting the famed art. But a Vatican Museums official says there are no plans to try to limit tourists' access. Museums Director Antonio Paolucci said in an article in the Vatican newspaper on Wednesday that sometimes as many as 20,000 people a day visit the chapel. But, he said, for the time being “the adoption of a maximum number (of visitors) will not be necessary.''

Immigration levels frozen for seventh straight year Postmedia Ne ws

OTTAWA - The federal government has frozen immigration levels for the seventh straight year, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced Wednesday, noting Canada will admit between 240,000 and 265,000 newcomers in 2013. Having already indicated that Canada was moving to prioritize young people with strong language and marketable skills, Kenney also indicated that the Canada Experience Class would grow

to 10,000, up from 2,500 in 2009. The stream, which facilitates permanent residency for temporary foreign workers and international post-secondary students who’ve already gained Canadian experience, has been growing steadily every year. More than 6,000 were admitted through the program in 2011. “Immigration plays a vital role in our country’s long-term prosperity,” Kenney said. “Our 2013 immigra-

tion plan will build on our economic success by bringing in more of the world’s top talent who already have a successful track record in Canada.” Kenney has not yet said how many newcomers are targeted for admission in 2013 t h ro u g h other streams. He’s also not expected to release details about a new points system that will favour youth, those with strong language skills and Canadian work experience just yet.

Hotel damage, lost equipment at sea: embarassing government bills Sar ah Schmid Postmedia News

OTTAWA-Statistics Canada coughed up a $4,000 settlement to a hotel after one of its census enumerators trashed the room he was staying in. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans shelled out $34,500 after losing at sea some scientific equipment it had leased. These claims paid out by Ottawa, outlined in the government’s 2012 public accounts tabled Tuesday, may be embarrassing, but they pale in comparison to the number of costly car accidents involving bu-

reaucrats while at work. For those, the costs run into the millions. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans alone spent over $200,000 last year in claims for multiple accidents involving government vehicles. Mishaps on the water were far less frequent - and less costly, with a $1,328 pay out for one single accident involving a crown vessel. DFO also paid a $2,980 settlement for lost lobster gear after it became entangled in scientific monitoring equipment. The department also paid $15,000 in compensation caused by an undisclosed `inci-

dent.’ Employees at Parks Canada got into their fair share of accidents that came with a much bigger price tag. In addition to $21,825 paid to various car rental operators and insurance companies, Parks Canada paid out a settlement of over $1.1-million related to a single car accident. The department also paid Bell $4,135 for damage to a telephone installation. In a separate incident involving a boat, Parks Canada paid out nearly $17,000. At the Department of National Defence, settlement of claims as a result of accidents involving departmental vehicles totalled nearly $1.9 million. The payouts ranged from $1,018 to a collision repair company to $550,000 in compensation to a person. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency staffers, meanwhile, cost the agency over $70,000 in insurance claims after crashing governmentowned cars and another

$60,000 for a settlement claim for pain and suffering linked to a car crash. Over at Environment Canada, the costs were more modest. The department spent $1,610 to repair a metal shed after an employee hit it while driving a government car. Another $15,000 was paid to Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia and others after departmental officials got into car accidents while on the job. Among the smallest claims itemized in the public accounts, the Justice Department’s Courts Administrative Service compensated an employee $148 after her eyeglasses were damaged while on the job. The Senate paid $390 in compensation for damage to a visitor’s cell phone. Statistics Canada confirmed Tuesday the payment of $4,000 covered “damage to a hotel room where a Statistics Canada enumerator was staying.”

Another ‘baby box’ opens in Russia to help save abandoned children Irina Titova Associated Press

KIRISHI, Russia — A box in which parents can leave their babies anonymously without any legal risk opened Wednesday in a town in northwestern Russia — part of an effort that activists hope will save many young lives. The baby box in Kirishi, an industrial town 100 kilometres east of St. Petersburg, is the tenth such facility in Russia. Experts think that’s just a fraction of what is needed. ``Even if only one child is saved that way it will be worth it,’’ said Tatiana Sobolevskya, deputy chief of the maternity department of Kirishi’s hospital, where the baby box is located. Nikolai Muravlev, a Russian Orthodox priest, came to bless the box and praise it as ``island of safety.’’ Once a baby is put in the box, its door closes and a nurse gets alerted

Associated Press

Yelena Kotova, head of Kolybel Nadezhdy (Cradle of Hope), a non-governmental organization, displays a photo of Margarita, a baby girl left in the baby box in Perm, at the opening of a baby box in Kirishi, Russia, Wednesday, Oct. 31. by a signal. There are no security cameras so parents can leave their babies anonymously. An information stand next to the box appeals to parents to think over their decision and offers contact numbers for assistance.

Kolybel Nadezhdy (Cradle of Hope), a nongovernment organization that opened the baby box, said it should help attract nationwide attention to the issue. Its head, Yelena Kotova, said more than a dozen babies are abandoned

in Russia every month according to official statistics, but she said the real figures are believed to be at least three times higher. Russian police have registered 268 cases of murder of newborn babies by their mothers in

Warm spring leads to Toronto cat overpopulation Canadian Press

TORONTO — A warm spring has led to a boom in Toronto’s cat population and now more of them than usual are roaming the streets, pushing the city’s animal shelters over capacity. As many as 300,000 cats are on Toronto’s streets, said Barbara Steinhoff with the Toronto Humane Society. In a given year there are between 100,000 and 300,000 cats without

homes and this year it’s at the extreme high end of that range, she said. ``Through the spring and summer, with the warm weather, the cats had one more birthing period than we would normally see,’’ she said. ``So we saw a huge influx of kittens coming into the shelter over the summer period.’’ The city’s shelters are full — but still accepting dozens more cats each day — and so are foster homes.

Rude British parrot needs new home Associated Press

LONDON — Everyone has a few faults. In Beaky’s case, he swears (a lot) and he bites. Not good qualities for a parrot seeking a new home. Still, honesty is the best policy, so the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has decided to come clean about his shortcomings. Supervisor Angelina Lusher said Wednesday

that anyone who takes Beaky in will have to put up with some rude language. The agency also says he tends to bite people until he bonds with them. Beaky is a chattering lory who will only be given to new owners with experience handling exotic birds. Lusher says Beaky needs interaction with people or other birds to have a fulfilling life.

Two Toronto shelters are slashing adoption fees to try to encourage more people to give a cat a home. Awareness, and not necessarily more shelters, will help decrease the number of homeless cats in Toronto, said Lei-

her. ``Building more shelters is almost like a Band-Aid,’’ Leiher said. ``We really need to focus on our education programs so that people are spaying and neutering their cat and keeping them supervised.’’

2010-2011, and Russian media have carried regular reports of babies found in garbage containers, forests or snowdrifts. One of the most recent cases was in St. Petersburg in August, when a man found a 3-day-old baby in a plastic bag in the bushes. The boy survived and was soon adopted. Kotova said in her home city of Perm in the Ural Mountains, the bodies of two newborn babies were found on a balcony. A woman who lived there with her other children just felt unable to raise another child, she said. In July, a five-day-old girl was left in a baby box in Perm with a note giving her name, Margarita, and her date of birth. Two more babies were left in baby boxes organized by Russia’s Krasnodar region. Russia borrowed the baby box idea from other European countries, where they have become quite numerous in recent years but have also fueled heated discussions. Critics say they infringe on the rights of mothers and children. ``A baby box isn’t a universal cure, it’s a way to attract attention to the problem and to help women,’’ said Galina Murzakayeva, a co-ordinator for the Kirishi project.

FACTS You Need to Know About…

Local Government’s Request for More Provincial Funding… With


Bill Bennett


The Association of KootenayBoundary Local Government recently stated it wants more funding from the Province. The Province would have to raise personal and business taxes to comply with their request or cut spending to healthcare.


Between 2000-2010, local government spending, provincially, increased by 13% a year and debt increased by 6% a year, compared to 8% and 4% respectively for the provincial government.


Local governments now receive 100% of all traffic fine revenues and three times the unconditional grants received under the NDP. Cranbrook has also received tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure funding for sewage treatment, roads, the regional hospital, the regional college, spirit square & seniors’ housing projects.

You faced your task with courage, but still you kept fighting until the very end. God saw you getting tired, when a cure was not to be. He put His arms around you and whispered â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Come with Meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. So when we saw you sleeping, so peaceful, free from pain, we would not wish you back to suffer that again.

Amputee to think his way to top of skyscraper C arl a K. Johnson Associated Press

CHICAGO – Zac Vawter considers himself a test pilot. After losing his right leg in a motorcycle accident, the 31-year-old software engineer signed up to become a research subject, helping to test a trailblazing prosthetic leg that’s controlled by his thoughts. He will put this groundbreaking bionic leg to the ultimate test Sunday when he attempts to climb 103 flights of stairs to the top of Chicago’s Willis Tower, one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers. If all goes well, he’ll make history with the bionic leg’s public debut. His whirring, robotic leg will respond to electrical impulses from muscles in his hamstring. Vawter will think, “Climb stairs,’’ and the motors, belts and chains in his leg will synchronize the movements of its ankle and knee. Vawter hopes to make it to the top in an hour, longer than it would’ve taken before his amputation, less time

than it would take with his normal prosthetic leg _ or, as he calls it, his “dumb’’ leg. A team of researchers will be cheering him on and noting the smart leg’s performance. When Vawter goes home to Yelm, Washington, where he lives with his wife and two children, the experimental leg will stay behind in Chicago. Researchers will continue to refine its steering. Taking it to the market is still years away. “Somewhere down the road, it will benefit me and I hope it will benefit a lot of other people as well,’’ Vawter said about the research at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago. Bionic _ or thoughtcontrolled _ prosthetic arms have been available for a few years, thanks to pioneering work done at the Rehabilitation Institute. With leg amputees outnumbering people who’ve lost arms and hands, the Chicago researchers are focusing more on lower limbs. Safety is important. If a

I’ve run marathons, and when you’re in pain, you just think about Terry Fox who did it with a wooden leg.” Levi Hargrove

In this Oct. 25, 2012 photo, Zac Vawter, fitted with an experimental “bionic” leg, is silhouetted on the Ledge at the Willis Tower in Chicago. Vawter is training for the world’s tallest stair-climbing event where he’ll attempt to climb 103 flights to the top of the Willis Tower using the new prosthesis. bionic hand fails, a person drops a glass of water. If a bionic leg fails, a person falls down stairs. The Willis Tower climb will be the bionic leg’s first test in the public eye, said lead researcher Levi Hargrove of the institute’s Center

for Bionic Medicine. The climb, called “SkyRise Chicago,’’ is a fundraiser for the institute with about 2,700 people climbing. This is the first time the climb has played a role in the facility’s research. To prepare, Vawter and the scientists have

spent hours adjusting the leg’s movements. On one recent day, 11 electrodes placed on the skin of Vawter’s thigh fed data to the bionic leg’s microcomputer. The researchers turned over the “steering’’ to Vawter. He kicked a soccer ball, walked around the

room and climbed stairs. The researchers beamed. Vawter likes the bionic leg. Compared to his regular prosthetic, it’s more responsive and more fluid. As an engineer, he enjoys learning how the leg works. It started with surgery in 2009. When Vawter’s leg was amputated, a surgeon repositioned the residual spaghetti-like nerves that normally would carry signals to the lower leg and sewed them to new spots on his hamstring. That would allow Vawter one day to be able to use a bionic leg, even though the technology was years away. The surgery is called “targeted muscle reinnervation’’ and it’s like “rewiring the patient,’’ Hargrove said. “And now when he just thinks

about moving his ankle, his hamstring moves and we’re able to tell the prosthesis how to move appropriately.’’ To one generation it sounds like “The Six Million Dollar Man,’’ a 1970s TV show featuring a rebuilt hero. A younger generation may think of Luke Skywalker’s bionic hand. But Hargrove’s inspiration came not from fiction, but from his fellow Canadian Terry Fox, who attempted a crosscountry run on a regular artificial leg to raise money for cancer research in 1980. “I’ve run marathons, and when you’re in pain, you just think about Terry Fox who did it with a wooden leg and made it halfway across Canada before cancer returned,’’ Hargrove said.
