Remember this? Last February, Kimberley’s Josh Dueck became the first sit-skier to land a backflip. Now he’s been nominated as National Geographic Adventurer of the Year.

Dueck up for National Geographic award


It was the backflip seen around the world, as Kimberley’s Josh Dueck landed the historic jump last year. The video of the flip went viral; he appeared on the Ellen Show and became something of a celebrity. In addition, the award winning film The Freedom Chair, chronicling WONDERFUL OPPORTUNITY FOR COUNTRY LIVING!

Dueck’s life as a sit-skier was cleaning up at film festivals. And through it all, Deuck continued to win with the National Para-Alpine ski team on the World Cup circuit. Now Dueck is being recognized by National Geographic Magazine, and has been chosen as one of 10 National Geographic Adventurers of the Year. National Geographic says on its

website that it selected the 2013 ‘Adventurers’ because of “their remarkable achievements in exploration, conservation, humanitarianism, and adventure sports.” Austrian Felix Baumgartner, who broke the sound barrier in October with his free-fall from space, is also among those selected.

Bountiful school closes By James Keller

THE CANADIAN PRESS VANCOUVER _ A school in Bountiful, B.C., with links to jailed polygamist leader Warren Jeffs has abruptly closed its doors, with most of its students now relying on home-schooling in a community that has long been accused of using classrooms to indoctrinate children rather than educate them. Bountiful Elementary-Secondary School shut down without explanation in September, the province’s Education Ministry confirms, and nearly all of its former students are being home-schooled. The school, which received provincial funding for some grade levels, had an enrolment of 265 students last year. Bountiful is a small commune of about 1,000 people in southwestern B.C., not far from the U.S. border. Residents follow a fundamentalist form of Mormonism, which, unlike the mainstream Mormon church, condones polygamy as a tenet of the faith. Bountiful Elementary-Secondary School was one of two schools in the community, which itself is split into two divided factions.

School in Bountiful closes Continued from page 1 The school was controlled by the faction that remains connected to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or FLDS, and its jailed leader Warren Jeffs. The FLDS side of the community is considered more extreme and isolated than the faction led by Winston Blackmore, who split with the church a decade ago. Blackmore’s school, Mormon Hills School, remains open with an enrolment this year of 178 students, according to the Education Ministry. Unlike Bountiful Elementary-Secondary School, Mormon Hills receives the highest level of government funding available to an independent school and is certified to grant high school diplomas. Education in the community came under scrutiny during a high-profile trial in late 2010 and early 2011 that examined Canada’s polygamy law. The trial heard evidence of declining enrolment at both schools, particularly at higher grade levels. Statistics presented in court indicated few students finished Grade 12 and even fewer received high school diplomas. The trial also heard

Children run back to class following a recess break at Mormon Hills school in the polygamous community of Bountiful near Creston, B.C. testimony from former Bountiful residents, who recalled being taught religion for several hours each day at the FLDS-run school, where boys were told to treat girls as “dangerous snakes.’’ When reached by phone, the school’s former principal, Guy Oler, declined to comment on the closure or how it might affect children in his community. The Bountiful Elem e nt a r y -S e c o n d a r y School Society, which ran the school, informed the provincial government in September that it wouldn’t be open this year, said Education Ministry spokesman Scott Sutherland.

“Every complaint that has ever arisen regarding the schools (in Bountiful) has been followed up on. The ministry is satisfied that these kids will continue to receive an education and they are registered in education programs.’’ Scott Sutherland Ministry of Education

He said the society didn’t provide an explanation, nor was it required to do so. The ministry and the local school district immediately began meeting with Bountiful school administrators and parents to ensure they

knew they were required to register the children elsewhere. “It came as a bit of a surprise to the ministry,’’ Sutherland said in an interview. Sutherland said most of the students are now enrolled in a local home-schooling program known as Homelinks, which connects parents and children with certified teachers who work with families to craft an educational program for each student. Professional teachers evaluate students’ work, but most of the instruction still occurs at home. When asked whether the ministry is concerned about the quality of education the Bountiful students will receive at home, Sutherland didn’t directly address the issue. “Every complaint that has ever arisen regarding the schools (in

Bountiful) has been followed up on,’’ he said. “The ministry is satisfied that these kids will continue to receive an education and they are registered in education programs.’’ The Homelinks program includes weekly activities designed to bring its homeschooled students together as a community. The local school district’s superintendent, Jeff Jones, said initially the Bountiful students will participate in their own activities, separate from other Homelinks students, but he hopes they will eventually be integrated. Bountiful has been the subject of numerous police investigation since the early 1990s amid allegations of polygamy, sexual abuse and human trafficking. In 2009, community leaders Winston Blackmore and James Oler were each charged with one count of practising polygamy. Those charges were later thrown out after a judge ruled the B.C. government violated the men’s rights. The collapse of that prosecution prompted the government to launch a constitutional reference case, which ended last year with a judge upholding the anti-polygamy law as constitutional. The RCMP currently have yet another investigation into Bountiful. A special prosecutor has been appointed to review any evidence the RCMP collects and consider charges that could include human trafficking, child exploitation and polygamy.

Tembec mill building destroyed by fire Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

Fire has levelled the former Tembec planer mill off Theatre Road Cranbrook late Thursday night, Nov. 1. No deaths or injuries were reported. Flames broke out in the longclosed mill just before 10 p.m. and a cause has not been determined. The City of Cranbrook said 18 firefighters responded to the blaze through the night with two fire trucks and the city’s ladder truck. “Their response is always very quick,” said Chris Zettel, corporate communications officer with the City of Cranbrook. He estimates it took about 10 minutes for the fire department to arrive after getting the call at 9:55 p.m. The crews remained on scene into the morning watching for flair ups and Theatre Road was closed to traffic in the morning. Zettel told the Townsman the 18 firefighters realized early on that they would not be able to save the building and instead moved on to saving some heavy equipment that had been left on site during the clean-up process. “If there’s a positive, that would be the positive,” Zettel said. Work Safe BC arrived on scene later in the morning and wrapped by the investigation later that day. The City of Cranbrook said in a press release that iInvestigators indicate that the cause of the fire is undetermined and deem the fire as not suspicious in nature. Mayor Wayne Stetski toured the site but Zettel said the rest of the ef-

forts would be left to Tembec, the company that owned the 36-hectare property. Bystanders at the scene told the Townsman that the fire razed the building that housed the former planer equipment. Former employee Joe Trozzo said the mill was a great place to work. He was employed there for 38 years before it shut down. Many employees went on to work at Canal Flats, Elko or Galloway. “It’s kind of disappointing to see it down, but it was coming down anyway,” he said. While he wasn’t able to pinpoint the exact date the mill opened its doors in Cranbrook, Trozzo believes it was in 1967 and about 85 people were employed there in its heyday. “It was a good career. For me it was a good 38 years of employment,” he said. What many employees enjoyed was driving only five minutes to work instead of commuting all the way to Canal Flats or Elko. Zettel said the building had been out of use for at least a year and it had been unstaffed for several months. Tembec closed the sawmill at the site in 1998, the planer was shuttered in 2010 and the kilns were permanently shut down in May. Trozzo said there had been a possibility of former mill employees coming back to help tear down the property, but that employment opportunity is now gone because of the fire. The company received just over

St. Mary’s Band has new Chief

Jim Whitehead takes over from Cheryl Casimer ANNALEE GR ANT Townsman Staff

A difference of one vote made Jim Whitehead the new chief of the St. Mary’s Band in last week’s election. St. Mary’s Band members headed to the polls on October 25 to elect three new councillors, with the highest vote-getter named the chief. Cheryl Casimer is the outgoing chief. The band’s new chief assumed office Friday in a ceremony at the band hall at 12 p.m. that was followed by lunch. The election results originally announced on October 25 were overturned after a recount was called by

chief electoral officer Marion Eunson. Originally, Casimer was re-elected to her position by a margin of one vote. The initial results put her at 80 votes, and Whitehead at 79. After the recount, Whitehead had earned 83 and Casimer, who was a councillor for 12 years before assuming the chief position, was behind with 82. Marty Williams and Casimer will retain their seats on council after the vote. Eunson said in a memo to the candidates, voters and community members that there were two spoiled ballots in the initial vote but it was later determined they fit the standards to be accepted. On the ballot were six candidates in total for the three vacant council positions including Troy

Hunter, Remus Clement and Rod Birdstone. The chief is elected in the same way the councillors are. The electorate will vote for the councillors and the person who receives the most votes becomes the chief. Each voter gets three votes for their chosen councillors and there were 120 total voters. Joe Pierre and Corey Walkley were not up for re-election. The band holds elections every two years with each position lasting for four. Vickie Thomas, chief operating officer for the St. Mary’s Band Administration, said in September that the overlap allows at least two members to remain on the board to welcome in potential new members and provide their expertise.

18 Cranbrook Firefighters responded to the blaze at the Tembec mill building.,

removing any leftover equipment and metal from the site. A sale of mill assets, ranging from the drying kilns to office furniture, concluded in late September. The fire did not involve the kiln or the finger joint plant on the property. No cause for the fire has been determined and there

are no damage estimates available at this time. For Trozzo, it was a sad sight watching the building engulfed in flames, even if it was due to be torn down. “I was there last night, watching it burn. I’m sorry to see it come down.”

RCMP report CPL. CHRIS NE WEL For the Bulletin

Frauds and scams Last week The Bulletin had story of a very popular scam. The detachment received a call from a grandparent about how they received a call from their grandson who was in trouble. He needed money, the story was very convincing and the caller had all the names. Unfortunately it worked. The scams are getting more and more involved and there are a multitude of variations. I cannot begin to tell you all the scams and how they work. You have to be VERY diligent when you get anything. Last week I even had a call at the detachment. Yes, Nick from San Diego wanted our IT department. Right off I know there was something wrong, we don’t have an IT department, per say. We have LAN people and I’m going to assume that if you are working with them, you will have their number. I asked if he knew who he called, he said, “yes, the Government of Canada”. Another clue. When I told him it was the police he still was not deterred. He kept on, I would have loved to continue the conversation, but he was convinced he was getting somewhere and denied any allegations of fraud or selling. Finally I had too much to do and moved on.

Vote Dueck Continued from page 1 “For eight years, National Geographic has combed the globe to find Adventurers of the Year, each selected for his or her extraordinary achievement in exploration, conservation, humanitarianism, and adventure sports. This year, we selected people who are adventure innovators—a surfer riding giants; a skier landing the first sit-ski backflip; a mountain biker pedaling across cultural boundaries; a BASE jumper falling from space; and more,” the website reads. This is a voting competition to pick the People’s Choice for Adventurer of the Year. You can vote for Dueck at until January 16, 2013. Dueck, reached at home in Vernon over the weekend, says he’s thrilled at the honour. “All the people who were selected are amazing and no matter who wins, I’ll always have that nomination.” However, he does urge all his Kimberley friends and supporters to visit the website and vote. “You can vote every day,” he said. “Like my friend Shane Gibson, another Kimberley boy said, ‘Dueck, I’m not going to vote for you just because you’re my buddy. I’m going to have a good look at all the nominees. “But I’m very, very excited to have this nomination from National Geographic because it is something I grew up with,” said Dueck. “My dad was a huge fan and I swear he probably owned 90 per cent of the volumes from the beginning of the 1900s through ‘til now.” As for life on the World Cup circuit, that remains very much a part of Dueck’s life. He is in training now and the first races are at Panorama in late November. He is also looking forward to the World Cup finals at Sochi, Russia, site of the 2014 Olympic and Paralympic games. “We get to check out the site,” he said. He plans to be there in 2014. “The Olympics are definitely one of my goals right now,” he said. “I enjoy skiing and the opportunity to once again be a Paralympian is something to be treasured, so why not?” You can vote for Dueck as National Geographic Adventurer of the year at

New signage for Lois Creek trails For the Bulle tin

No chance of getting lost on the Lois Creek Trails nowadays, since the installation of over 80 new trail signs. Armed with a map from the trail head map boxes it is much easier to become oriented to where you are in the trail network by referencing the map with the trail signs. Increasing usage of the trails is very gratifying to members of the Friends of Lois Creek who made the signs and who provide maintenance to keep the trails clear of blow down. It has been a bigger than normal task this summer and fall with more than usual heavy windstorms that uprooted numerous trees that needed to be chainsawed. The non-motorized multi-use trails cater to bikers, hikers, crosscountry skiers and snowshoers. Now that winter is on the way, teh trails will be regularly groomed with a tracker for cross-country skiers and you consideration is requested to not walk in the ski tracks. Snowshoe trails will be laid

down alongside the ski trails for the use of snowshoers and walkers. These are dogfriendly trails but we just ask that you take along a plastic bag to scoop up your pet’s doggie-doo. Kimberley is fast becoming a mecca for multi-use trail systems and many communities are recognizing the economic value of developing trails that are being sought by tourists from far and wide.

Selkirk student launches SADD chapter This will be the first Students Against Drunk Driving chapter in British Columbia From Page 1 “I’ve been around MADD for quite some time,” she said, referring to her Mom Katryna Sigurdson’s work starting up the local branch. Through that influence, Katey began to look into the potential SADD branch. She found her principal Clint Dolgopol was receptive to the idea, and this week she started announcing it to her fellow students. “I figured, I like being involved with my community,” Katey said. With SADD just starting up, Katey said she hopes to

raise awareness to a demographic that is often hard hit by drinking and driving incidents. “I want to bring it into our school,” she said. The group is starting off small, but Katey said she’s had interest from her peers and outside the high school. Already Mount Baker Secondary School has contacted her to get a chapter set up there. Katey has friends over at the Cranbrook high school, which will be the perfect way to start branching out. “The more people (involved) equals less accidents,” she said. Eventually SADD will begin holding events at the high school. Katey’s plan is to get a few on the go this year. MADD Canada provides youth volunteers with a pack-

age that helps them get fundraising events started. “With teacher support and student support I think I can get a couple this year,” Katey said. Once the chapter gets underway at Selkirk, Katey has her sights set on an even bigger goal: she wants to see SADD groups all across the province. “I want to eventually get it around the province,” she said. For now, ribbons will be available at Selkirk Secondary School for students to tie on to their own vehicles, but if all goes well this initiative will be coming to more high schools around the province very soon.

everyone one the scene that day kept their heads and everyone had a part of helping Everett, from initially digging him out, making sure the younger kids were taken away from the scene, talking to the ambulance dispatchers on the phone, to driving out to the highway to make sure the ambulance found it’s way, getting GPS coordinates for the helicopter, getting water and blankets, clearing a landing area so Bighorn Helicopters could land safely, and our personal retired nurse who took charge to help stabilize young Everett till the ambulance arrived. Bighorn got Everett to Fernie hospital where he was stabilized and transferred with S.T.A.R.S helicopters to Calgary where he was put on an ECMO machine then another S.T.A.R.S. flight to Edmonton to the Stollery Childrens Hospital. Everett is back in school in Kimberley, and is expected to make a full recovery from the serious accident at Koocanusa

Lake. Garth and Donelle, Everett and Leith say, “We are very grateful for everyone’s financial and emotional support. Thanks to all that were at the scene. The fast response of the Fernie ambulance and Bighorn Helicopters of Cranbrook. Thanks to the Wasa Lions and all the community and out of town friends that supported Franks and Thanks. Fort Steele Heritage Town for raising funds through a silent auction. Also a thank you to Pastor Gary who visited family in Wasa as soon as he heard the news of the accident and the prayer vigil at Wasa Community Church for Everett right after the accident. Thanks also to family who were at the hospital with us and made sure we were fed and had clean clothes. Thank-you everyone.” Having young Everett back home and in school is the best possible ending to a near tragic camping accident on Labour Day Weekend in the South Country.

When all is Ed and Don “When all’s said and nothing done.” Anonymous


on was sitting at home feeling sorry for himself when the front door crashed open and Ed’s cheerful voice called, “You decent?” This was followed by several thumps, the front door slamming shut and then the sound of someone stomping laboriously up the stairs. Don, sarcastic, called, “You packing an elk or something?” His old friend, Ed, appeared. He was operating crutches and a large cast on his right leg. Don said, “Ooo! Twins.” But he was curious. He too was nursing a broken leg, the same side: the right one. Uninvited, Ed eased himself down beside his old buddy. “Got a beer?” he asked, but had to re-arrange himself and fetch the drinks from the fridge. He flopped back down and said, “So what happened to you, then?” But he wasn’t going to wait for his buddy’s story; he launched right into his own. He’d decided to climb Fisher Peak on his own a couple of weeks back and opted to start late so to avoid the crowds. Don tried to imagine crowds on the laborious slopes of Fisher. “Weekends in the summer and the place is crawling with folks knock-

ing rocks down, if you’re not careful,” explained Ed. “I wait till they’re all off the mountain before I start. It’s a four hour romp if you’re fit.” He scratched at his unruly hair which appeared to Don to be in the act of abandoning his head. “Anyway, I made it to the top without getting severely killed but things went wrong on the way down.” Ed picked up a ball-point pen from the table beside him and poked experimentally into the cast on his leg where, Don noted, someone had written ‘Your a credit to Peter your lunacy’. He also noted Warland the grammatical error but agreed with the sentiments of the author. It seems that Ed had had a little incident on the way down the long talus slopes and this incident resulted in a broken leg. He slurped at his beer and said, “There I was, no one in sight and wondering if this was the end of my shelf-life. I couldn’t move.” He attempted to make a splint from the ski-pole he’d been packing, but it was too long. He’d rummaged in his day-pack to see if he had enough in it to survive the night out in the open. “Didn’t fancy my chances.” He explained. Don heaved himself out of his seat and went to look for something to eat. Ed is inclined to be long winded in his stories. And he was.

“But then,” he said as Don was making sandwiches, “I heard voices. Couldn’t believe my ears. Anyways, I yelled and these three guys wandered up. No idea what they were doing on Fisher that late in the afternoon but they tried to help me and one of them had a cell phone but couldn’t get a signal. I told him he’d have to try higher up and he wandered off, making a hash of getting up that rock-slide. I nearly got buried in the avalanche he started.” The sandwiches went down fast enough and Ed complained that all that talking was making him thirsty, so Don had to fetch more beer. To cut a long story short, something that Ed could never do, the fellow with the cellphone got through and, just before dark, a helicopter flew in with paramedics. The search and rescue team piled him into a stretcher and, according to Ed, ‘threw him into the chopper’. “Saved my sorry ass,” he added.Then, “How come you didn’t know this?” Don explained that he’d been out of town on a course in Montreal. He then found a moment to admit that he’d caught a taxi from the airport and, when it delivered him home, it was dark and he’d taken a short-cut across his neighbour’s lawn where he’d fallen over a kid’s toy and broken his stupid leg. “Pretty lame story, eh?” he joked. “Gives us something to talk about. Right?” said Ed.

Upon opening Tuesday’s edition of the paper, I was surprised to find that, in conjunction with common sense, humour and fun are lost on some people. I refer to the letter railing against the local Zombie Walk, an event held to support the local food bank. The generalizations and accusations thrown around are baffling. I don’t see how a local event dedicated to the celebration of the zombie genre created in the late 1960s is in any way condoning cannibalism. It is a fun event where people take advantage of the Halloween season, dressing up as zombified human beings: they are not eating real human remains. I am sure there are people who use the food bank that are not “suffering from physical, sexual and mental abuse and mental illness” that appreciate any effort of help in their time of need. I was especially taken aback by the comment about drug addicts that walk around like the living dead. It shows her clear misunder-

standing of drug addiction. The reference to the Greyhound bus murder was a traumatic event for the families involved and is irrelevant to a Halloween fundraiser. Zombie walks are huge, well-attended events that happen all across Canada, they are not a celebration of gore, violence and abuse but rather a fun, harmless excuse to dress up as a zombie and raise some funds in a time that the food bank struggles.

Operation Legacy I am a member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, which consists of young members and graduates of the Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program who are dedicated to preserving and commemorating Canada’s military heritage by teaching younger generations about our nation’s wartime history. I have had the privilege to learn about

Canada’s military heritage and also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. CHAMP was started by war amputee veterans and I want to give back to those who have given me so much. It’s important to remember our veterans for countless reasons. The individuals that left their families, homes and lives behind to fight for us and our country deserve more than just remembrance. We should be thankful every day for what they went through for us. The bravery, strength and courage it took is not something easily found. I give all my respect to our war veterans. I encourage all of you to learn more about Canada’s history by means of The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which can be ordered at Kendra Blakely, Operation Legacy Member Revelstoke

Changing the guard in China


y the end of November 6, we will know who will be the president of the United States for the next four years. We already know who will be the leader of China for the next 10 years, although Xi Jinping will not be officially installed in power until a few days later. But some would argue that that is the more important event. The United States, after all, is a rich country with a stable and democratic political system. American politics has suffered a severe case of gridlock in recent years, but nobody believes that it should be solved by radical changes in the U.S. constitution. Any changes that result from the outcome of next Tuesday’s election will be marginal, because that’s the way that most Americans want it. China, by contrast, has had 30 years of high-speed economic growth that has created huge inequality. There are a million Chinese millionaires, most of them closely linked to the ruling party, while most people get by on around $250 a month. Yet there has been no perceptible change in the Chinese political system in all these years, and the new guy’s family is stinking rich. Bloomberg revealed

last June that Xi Jinping’s elder sister, his brother-in-law, and their daughter had property and investments worth at least $300 million. There is no evidence that Xi himself, who gets a ministerial salary of about $1,000 a month, is directly involved in these enterprises, but his family’s rise to great wealth is typical of what has been happening in the senior cadres of the Chinese Communist Party. Indeed, the outgoing prime minister, Wen Jiabao, has an even bigger family problem. Wikipedia published a U.S. diplomatic cable dated 2007 that quoted a business executive in Shanghai who said: “Wen is disgusted with his family’s activities, but is either unable or unwilling to curtail them.” A New York Times investigation published this month estimated the Wen family’s wealth at $2.7 billion. Both of these men’s wealth problems were dwarfed by those of the now-disgraced Bo Xilai, until recently the Communist Party chief in the city of Chongqing. The family’s wealth was only in the low hundreds of millions, but when Bo’s wife Gu Kailai fell out with a British businessman who

helped them to transfer money abroad, she had him killed. Even among the Chinese elite, this is seen as excessive, and Gu is on trial for murder. Bo has been stripped of his offices and expelled from the Party. But everybody knows that the

Gwynne Dyer families of senior officials mysteriously often end up very rich. Not all of the 2,987 members of the National People’s Congress — China’s rubber-stamp legislature, are rich — but the richest 70 of them, according to the Hurun Report, a magazine best known for its “China Rich List”, have a combined net worth of $85 billion. Virtually nobody believes in the old Communist ideology any more: “socialism with Chinese characteristics” is only another way of saying “capitalism plus authoritarianism.” The Party’s power survives because it has

been able to deliver steadily rising living standards for most people, and because it has been fairly successful in persuading them that the only alternative to its rule is chaos. This is not a stable situation. No capitalist economy can avoid an occasional recession, but that kind of cyclical decline in jobs and incomes is dangerous for a system whose credibility depends on providing continuous growth. The Chinese regime has been very good at postponing the inevitable — it escaped the 2008 recession by massive public spending — but at some point in the relatively near future, there will be a major recession in China. The resemblance between the current Chinese economic bubble and the great Japanese bubble of the 1980s is close enough to suggest that the hangover may be just as great in China when the bubble finally bursts. Two decades later Japan is still unable to get its economy growing again, but its political system has survived because it is democratic, and because the level of corruption is relatively low. The Chinese regime’s lack of democratic legitimacy and its manifest corruption

make it very vulnerable in such a situation. The economic misery would be compounded by massive civil unrest, and it might even bring the end of Communist rule. Most of the senior people in the Party will be well aware of this, but they seem incapable of doing anything about it. Part of the problem is that they remember all too clearly what happened to the old Soviet Communist Party when it started trying to reform itself under Mikhail Gorbachev. It disintegrated instead. An even bigger obstacle to change is the degree to which the economic interests of the elite are linked to the present, deeply corrupt system. If apparently honest men like Wen Jiabao and Xi Jinping are unable to control the reckless greed of their own relatives, what hope is there that the Party can change its behaviour in time to avert disaster? The coronation of Xi Jinping probably won’t make any difference at all. You might as well watch the American election. At least there is some uncertainty about the outcome.

Nitros earn two wins in weekend triple-header TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Nitros were two for three over the weekend in a triple header, defeating the Columbia Valley Rockies and the Creston Valley Thunder Cats, but dropping their final contest with the Osoyoos Coyotes. The Dynamiters hosted the Rockies at home on Friday, wininng 6-2, before heading to Creston to earn a 7-2 victory on Saturday. However, the Coyotes spoiled the chance for Kimberley to sweep the table on Sunday, beating the Nitros 5-3 at the Civic Centre. Dynamiter goaltenders Bryce Halverson and Jeremy Mousseau split duties, as both earned a win each, while the former took the loss on Sunday. Kimberley is scrapping with divisional rival in the Fernie Ghostriders for the top spot in the Eddie Mountain Division. Kimberley is currently one point ahead of the Ghosties and rank fifth overall in the league, however, Fernie has three games in hand. Adam Hodge and Isaac Schacher each had a three point night as the Rockies crumbled under the Dynamiters offensive prowess. Despite losing, Jake Fardoe struck first for the Rockies five minutes into the game on a power play. However, Brett Luker and Schacher responded for Kimberley before the

end of the opening frame. Columbia Valley tied up the affair on another power play goal less than a minute into the second period, but the floodgates opened after that as Kimberley scored four unanswered goals before the final buzzer sounded. Dallin Wolf got things started, while Connor Kutzner and Aaron Shubert followed up before the second frame ended. Schacher scored his second of the game and the only goal of the third period to close it out. Mousseau earned the win, stopping 19 shots, while Rockies net minder Brody Nelson turned away 33 pucks. The refs were busy on the whistle, as the Rockies had 10 power play opportunities, converting twice, while the Nitros were good for one goal with the man-advantage in 11 chances. Kimberley followed up the win with another successful performance on Saturday in Creston, beating the Thunder Cats 7-2, with Schacher and Mitchell Loose leading the way with three points each. The bulk of the scoring occurred in the first period, as both teams combined for seven goals. Five minutes into the affair, Adam Hodge scored for Kimberley, but Trevor LeBlanc tied it up for Creston a few minutes later.

Daly: Marathon CBA session ‘covered a lot of ground’ The conversation is flowing again between the NHL and NHL Players’ Association. After deputy commissioner Bill Daly held a marathon session with NHLPA special counsel Steve Fehr that stretched into the early hours of Sunday morning, he indicated that the sides plan to return to the bargaining table again soon. “We met on and off for most of the day and covered a lot of ground,’’ Daly told The Canadian Press via email. “We plan to meet again early in the week.’’ Daly and Fehr got together on Saturday afternoon at an undisclosed location to avoid the glare of the media spotlight and find a way forward in negotiations. It was the first meeting between representatives of the league and union since Oct. 18 and followed a series of informal phone conversations between the men that offered a hint of where things might be headed.

Taylor Vickerman, of the Vancouver Giants, lines up Kootenay Ice defenceman Jagger Dirk for a hit during WHL action at Western Financial Place on Saturday evening.

Kootenay slides into last place TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay slid into last place in the WHL this weekend, dropping three straight contests in a triple-header action at home and on the road. The Ice lost an overtime decision to the Saskatoon Blades by a score of 3-2 on Friday, followed by a 6-3 defeat at the hands of the Vancouver Giants on Saturday. A quick road trip to

Medicine Hat resulted in a 3-1 loss to the Tigers on Sunday. Kootenay’s performance and record (411-1-0) puts them at the bottom of the WHL, one point behind the Vancouver Giants, who climbed out of the bottom the cellar after their victory over the Ice. Ice goaltender Wyatt Hoflin stood in net against the Blades, and appeared in two periods against the Giants be-

fore Mackenzie Skapski replaced him in the final frame. Skapski earned the start on Sunday against the Tigers and took the loss. Saskatoon edged out the Ice in overtime, beating the hometown team despite getting outshot almost two-toone on the shot clock. While Andrey Makarov faced a lot of rubber in the crease, Kootenay Ice forward Erik Benoit said his team

didn’t make things difficult enough for the Blades’ starter. “We should’ve tried to get those second and third opportunities,” said Benoit. “We were, at points, crashing the net and at other points, we weren’t and we should’ve. “He just made the first stop and that was it for him so kudos to him for playing a good game and we just got to make sure we get those sec-

ond and third chances.” Hoflin made 17 saves on the night for Kootenay, while Makarov turned away 34 pucks. Both teams failed to capitalize on five separate power plays. The Ice took the lead in the first period, when Jordyn Boyd fired the puck home after Zach McPhee wrapped around the back of the net and threw the biscuit out front.

Ice pick up veteran forward in trade with Everett TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice added some veteran experience to their roster on Friday, acquiring Zach McPhee from the Everett Silvertips in exchange for a conditional seventh round pick in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft. McPhee, a 19-yearold forward with two years experience in the WHL, had suited up for the Silvertips 11 times so far this season. Over his career, he’s appeared in 57 games, with 11 points and 42 penalty minutes. “With our need to

add bodies to our roster, we felt Zach would be a great fit,” said Kootenay Ice general manager Jeff Chynoweth. “He is a veteran player who will bring size and versatility to our lineup with his ability to play both centre and right wing.” McPhee arrived in Cranbrook a day before the trade was officially announced by the WHL, and got in some practice time before the Ice’s triple header weekend. Things apparently didn’t work out in Everett, as McPhee had left the club to pursue opportunities at the Jr. A

level before getting his rights dealt to the Ice. “It was sad, leaving Everett, but I felt it was on my own terms. I felt like they had a lot of 16and 17-year-old guys that they wanted to get in and I thought that maybe a trade would be a better opportunity and when Jeff (Chynoweth) called me, it was a no-doubter to come here,” said McPhee. Kootenay Ice head coach Ryan McGill didn’t waste any time getting McPhee into the lineup, as he appeared in all three games this past weekend. “He [McGill] said I’m

going to step into a second-line role right off the bat and that’s what I wanted in the trade and that’s all I can ask for,” said McPhee. McPhee got on the scoreboard in his first game, wrapping the puck around the back of the net and firing it in front for former Everett Silvertips teammate Jordyn Boyd, who scored for the Ice to open things against the Saskatoon Blades on Friday night at Western Financial Place. McPhee brings age and experience to the forward ranks, being only one of two 19-year-

olds along with Erik Benoit, but he also has more to add to the team. “I play a 200-foot game,” said McPhee. “I take care of my own end first and then go from there. I’m pretty good on draws and I just try to create room for Boyd and Descheneau.” It was the second trade in as many days for the Ice, which had dealt away prospects D Kyle Krabben and F Doug Morris—both of who are currently playing in the AJHL—in order to acquire Austin Vetterl from the Vancouver Giants.

Avs post mixed results in first home action Tre vor Cr awley Sports Editor

The Avalanche had a weekend of mixed results in first home action at the College of the Rockies gym, as the men walked away with two wins, while the ladies were bested in both matches against the visiting Columbia Bible College Bearcats. It was polar opposites on the scoresheet, as the men’s Avs took both matches on Friday and Saturday against the Bearcats by scores of 3-0. However, the women’s Bearcats proved to be a tougher challenge, beating the Avs by the same scores in both games. The male Bearcats put up a good fight in the first set of the opening match on Friday, coming within a few points of the win, but the Avalanche took it by a threepoint spread. The boys in blue handily took the remaining two sets for the sweep to earn their home win of the season. Saturday’s match was a much tighter affair, as the Bearcats sharpened up and forced the Avs to earn their set victories after both teams remained tied at 25 points in the first and third sets. The Avs had a bit

more breathing room in the middle set, getting the win with a sevenpoint spread. “It’s two big wins for us,” said men’s Avalanche head coach Steve Kamps. “A team we need to beat and a team we need to beat at our home gym so it should be a real confidence boost for the guys and we need to continue to get better.” Even though the Bearcats exposed some of the weaknesses on his team, Kamps said he liked how his guys stayed composed when the sets got close. “Our ability to close out matches,” said Kamps, on what gave his team the edge after Saturday’s win. “Especially today—CBC played much better, they were pretty flat on Friday night. Today they came to play, were scrappy and we were just patient after 20 [points] and won a lot of those rallies.” The men’s Bearcats roster features Samuel Kemperman, a Cranbrook native, along with Matt Lieuwen, the brother of former Kootenay Ice goaltender Nathan Lieuwen. The Avalanche ladies had two tough games as

The women put up a good fight in the first set of Friday’s match, but the Bearcats had an easier time winning the remaining two. Saturday was more of the same, with the Avs coming up short in the first two sets, before bat-

tling to within five points in the final. “We played against a really good team, there’s no doubt about that,” said Bendkowska. “Those guys were hitting with us, played defence really well, weren’t missing serves, so it was hard to get a point off them.” Along with facing a tough team, it seemed as if her girls were hav-

ing trouble limiting mistakes on the court as well, Bendkowska added. “We were struggling to get the ball over the net, to put that ball in to make a point on top of that. “…Something was missing and I don’t think that communication, that chemistry, was there.”

Wolf and Hodge responded with two quick goals before Trevor Hanna found the back of the net for the T-Cats. Loose and Jason Richter scored after that to give Kimberley a 5-2 lead after the opening period. Schacher scored the lone goal in the second period, while Matt Gann potted the only goal in the third. Bryce Halverson turned away 27 shots for Kimberley, while the Nitros chased Tyler Moffatt from the net after 5 goals in 15 shots. Creston backup Zach Straza took over after Kimberley’s fifth goal in the first period and made 26 saves by the end of the game. Kimberley suffered it’s only defeat of the triple header weekend on Sunday as Alex Grupe posted a hat trick to lead the Osoyoos Coyotes 5-3 past the Nitros. Despite the loss, Kimberley took a first period lead off of goals from Isaac Schacher and Connor Tetlock, before the ‘Yotes responded with Grupe’s first marker of

the evening. Both teams traded goals in the second frame, with Connor Kutzner getting on the scoreboard for Kimberley, while Troy Maclise answered for Osoyoos. The Dynamiters blew their lead in the third period, as the ‘Yotes scored three unanswered goals—two from Grupe and one from Brandon Watson—to surge ahead and edge out the win. Grupe’s second of the night was a shorthanded effort that tied it up early in the frame, but the sniper completed his hat trick and took the lead for his team with 49 seconds left in the game. Watson put a puck into an empty net with 20 seconds remaining. Halverson took the loss in net for Kimberley, turning away 30 shots, while Bryson McKinnon turned away 27 shots for the ‘Yotes. The Dynamiters get a break for the week before heading to the Okanagan for contests with the Summerland Steam and the Kelowna Chiefs.

Ice extend losing skid to seven games after weekend action Continued from page 8 However, the Blades managed to tie up the game five minutes later, when Josh Nicholls broke through the Ice defence for a shorthanded breakaway and put a backhand past Hoflin’s blocker side. It got rough in near the end of the period, when Darren Deitz bowled over Ice defenceman Tanner Faith at the blue line, who’d knelt down to control a bouncing puck with his glove. Kootenay forward Brock Montgomery went after the Blades’ defenceman, earning a instigating minor, a five-minute major for fighting and a ten-minute misconduct. Montgomery ended up spending 23 minutes in the sin bin over the course of the game. Lukas Sutter nearly put the Blades in the lead in the second period, but he fired the puck through the crease at the side of the

net, looking up to the rafters in disbelief as he skated back to the bench. However, it was Nicholls who scored again, when he banged in a pass at the side of the net from teammate Matej Stransky. Kootenay tied up the affair in the third period, when Benoit flew down the wing and wristed a shot on net that snuck through Makarov’s five-hole. The Ice nearly capitalized again in a similar fashion later in the period, when McPhee put an innocent looking shot on net that snuck through Makarov, barely trickling wide of the net. But the two teams were deadlocked after 60 minutes, which forced overtime. It looked like it was nearly over 20 seconds into the extra frame when Sam Reinhart and Montgomery made some magic as

they entered the zone and created a dangerous chance, but Makarov made the save. However, it was the Blades who skated away with the win, when an uncovered Shane McColgan put the puck off the twine after he walked out into the slot from the corner and waited out Hoflin as he crossed the crease. The Vancouver Giants visited Western Financial Place the following evening, earning a 6-3 win as Marek Tvrdon led the way, along with linemate Kale Kessy, as each collected four points. Cranbrook native Payton Lee stood in net for the Giants, making 21 saves for his second win of the season, while Hoflin played two periods, with Mackenzie Skapski closing out the game in the final frame. The Giants capitalized first near the halfway mark of the opening period, when

Marek Tvrdon scored his first of two when he fired a rebound home in front of the crease. However the Ice tied it up in the following period, when Jon Martin notched a shorthanded effort. The 17-year-old forward went down behind the net while chasing a Vancouver defenceman, however, Levi Cable picked off the puck and fired it on net. Martin, who was all alone behind the net, skated out in front, intercepted the shot, drew the puck across the crease and stuffed it past Lee. But the wheels fell off after that, as the Giants scored four unanswered goals over the next 20 minutes. Anthony Ast opened the floodgates first, beating Hoflin after receiving a cross-ice pass that put him alone on net. Kessy got his goal two minutes later, when he wired a shot into the net after Tvr-

don stripped the puck off an Ice defenceman and threw it out front. Jackson Houck added to the Ice’s woes when he collected a puck at the top of the face-off circle in the Kootenay zone and fired it top shelf. “The second period, we came out flying,” said Martin. “We got a shorthanded goal, forechecked hard, but I guess the bounces just weren’t going our way.” Skapski replaced Hoflin in the third period, but Tvrdon got his second goal of the game a minute into the the action, when he put a backhand on net that beat the Ice netminder. Down 5-1 with 19 minutes to go in the game, the Ice tried to mount a comeback, but the Giants and Lee kept the Ice from getting on the scoreboard until late in the game. Kyle O’Connor got his second goal of his career, wristing a shot on net while streaking

into zone on the left wing. Reinhart cut the deficit to two goals, when he scooped up a loose puck in front of Lee and put it home in the final minute. The Ice pulled Skapski, but newly minted Mason Gersteen, who was acquired by the Giants in a trade with the Edmonton Oil Kings last week, potted the empty netter with 30 seconds left. “We came out in the first period thinking it was going to be easy but we weren’t all in the same boat,” said Martin. “We weren’t working hard, weren’t doing the simple things right, trying to be fancy and complicating.” Kootenay hit the road and challenged the Tigers in Medicine Hat, dropping a 3-1 decision after three periods. Former Iceman Elgin Pearce opened the scoring for the Ti-

gers, and Hunter Shinkaruk notched the insurance marker in the final minute of the game. Kyle Becker doubled the lead halfway through the second period on the power play before Sam Reinhart answered for the Ice in the final minute. However, Shinkaruk’s power play goal in the last 60 seconds of the game dimmed Kootenay’s chances of finding the equalizer with a pulled goaltender and extra attacker. Skapski allowed three goals in 37 shots for the Ice, while Cam Langin stopped 27 shots for the Tigers. Kootenay failed to convert twice on the man-advantage, while Medicine Hat was good for two power play goals in four opportunities. Kootenay has the week off before hosting the Moose Jaw Warriors next Saturday at Western Financial Place.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Your sharpness and ingenuity are increasing multifold. Your communication style also excels, as you seem to say the right words at the right time. You often might find yourself stumbling into brainstorming situations. Tonight: Ever playful. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Know what you want regarding a personal matter. Try to clear up problems, hassles and misunderstandings by noon. You might want to know more of what is happening behind the scenes with a child. Ask the right questions, and everything will come out. Tonight: Stay centered. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have a lot to say, and you will say just that. Investigate your alternatives more thoroughly. You might be quite verbal once you grasp the depth of an issue. Perhaps the wise action would be to say little until you are entirely sure of yourself. Tonight: Talk up a storm.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Use the morning well, when you are a powerhouse and feel close to invincible. You could be overserious and not willing to take a risk. The unexpected works for you -just remember to slow down if you become upset. Tonight: Treat time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Honor your desires, and remain sure of yourself. Someone could push you beyond your limits. Incoming news opens your eyes to a different perspective. The words of an expert or someone in the know will surprise you. Tonight: All smiles. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Use the daylight hours to the max in order to accomplish tasks that involve others. Be aware of your innate limits. You might want to understand more. Pull back and listen. You could be surprised by how much is revealed. Tonight: Have a chat with a friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Zero in on what you want, whether it is professionally or personally.

backfire. You might feel centered, until someone acts in a strange manner. Tonight: Where your friends are. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Take a stand and remain secure when dealing with others who you believe have more experience and/or knowledge than you. You could feel quite jittery about everything that is happening. You might feel as if an obstacle is in your way. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Keep reaching out to someone at a distance. A conversation in the morning points to how important this person is to you. He or she understands you better than many people do in your life. An important discussion could occur as a result. Tonight: Where there is music. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You finally can relate to one person directly and discuss your authentic feelings; now you both can drop the act. A friend or loved one continues to jolt you with his or her behavior. Know that this individual might be coming from a slightly

depressed perspective. Tonight: Where your friends are. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Let others seek you out -- that is, if you have enough patience. You will hear much more if you allow them to initiate interactions instead of you. Though you might have a naysayer very near to you, just ignore this person. Tonight: Say “yes” to an invitation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Your creativity dominates the morning, while your concentration rules the evening. If you can blend the two together, you will succeed. What you accomplish as a result could be awesome and unusual. You might decide to go off and choose a fun happening. Tonight: Not in the mood to stop.

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My father was recently killed in an accident. Now it’s just my mother and me. I don’t know how my mom is going to cope with the loss, and I am not sure how I will, either. I won’t have my father around to see me graduate, get married or have kids. Here’s the issue: I’m 20 and will be transferring soon to an out-of-state college. This was planned months ago. But I worry that once I leave, my mother will have a breakdown. Am I making the right choice to go away? I’ve been dreaming of this college for years, but now I feel selfish. I know I can’t put my life on hold, but I want to be sure I’m doing things the right way. I want to be on my own and learn to become independent, but I also realize I’ll be alone and will have to start all over, just like my mom. It’s going to be hard. Mom has friends, Dad’s family and our church nearby to give her support. I won’t have any of that at my new school. Maybe I just need to force myself to be strong because no one else will push me to do it. I know my mom would like me to stay, but she’d feel guilty if I did. I’m so lost. -- Devastated Daughter Dear Devastated: The death of a loved one can make decisions difficult, and it usually is best not to rush into anything. But you seem ready to leave home, and if this is the case, you should go. Your mother has a support network in place, and you can call her often in order to stay in close touch and be sure she is OK. And you also will need a support network. Your new school should offer counseling services, and we hope you will look into them as soon as you arrive. But if you are reluctant to go, find out whether the school will permit you to defer enrollment for a semester. Dear Annie: For a few years, I have been in a serious relationship with a beautiful 54-year-old woman whom I’ve considered marrying. But she likes to flirt and has had several men fall in love with her and propose marriage. It has created a lot of discomfort for me and takes a great deal of patience to tolerate. She insists that she’s not like that anymore. But, Annie, she’s suddenly keeping company with her rich, widowed cousin who is 20 years older. In the past two years, he has taken her on seven trips, including cruises and resorts where they share a single room. She says I have nothing to worry about because he’s her cousin. Is that true? I’m also hurt that we had planned to do all of these things together. Am I being oversensitive, or should I be seeing red flags? -- Home Alone Dear Home Alone: Red flags? Honey, the flags are on fire. This woman is taking advantage of your patience and tolerance. We suspect this man may not really be her cousin, and even if he is, it doesn’t preclude intimacy. If she respected your relationship, she would not be taking trips with another man and sharing his room. She cannot be trusted. We think you should get out while you can. Dear Annie: I am writing about “Worried Grandma,” who said her granddaughter, “Kelly,” is loud and talks excessively. I am the mother of a son with a profound hearing loss. He is 24, happily married and has two cochlear implants. Talking excessively can be a sign of hearing loss. Kelly says she knows she is loud but is unable to control it. That can happen with hearing loss because they can’t hear well enough to control their own volume. Please suggest that “Worried Grandma” have Kelly evaluated by an ENT -- Mother of a Deaf Son Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Bull River Shooters season comes to a close Br adley Woods

The Bull River Shooter’s Association has enjoyed a great season of competition and club activities, with some of our members realizing great personal accomplishments. We have seen growth in our club and with that, improvements to our range. September 29 was our first annual memorial shoot. This match allowed us to honour two members who passed away this year: Joe Pique and Joe Eaton. We also remembered a number of members who helped start the club and have since passed on: Farley Smith, Ted Bellamey, Bucky Buckman, Jim Buck and Margaret Graf. Club president Bill Johnson made a beautiful plaque, with the engraved names of deceased members affixed. The plaque was presented in honor to Anne Pique, wife of Joe. Anne was the impetus behind the memorial service, which will now be an annual shoot for our club. The plaque will reside in the clubhouse for all to see. The service included kind words of memory and was followed by a potluck social. Shooting results for the day are: B class Mike Keeling 1st A class Trudy Phillips 1st; Brad Schill 2nd

AA class Kaitlynn Johnson 1st; Brad Woods 2nd AAA class Jeramey Marsh 1st; Ralph Oler 2nd Match Champion Jim Zimmerman October 20 saw a cold and rainy day with a few brave souls venturing out for a club match! The highlight of the day was 18 year old Kaitlynn Johnson shooting an amazing 36/40 in one round, which is a Master class score and resulted in her automatically being moved to AAA class! Kaitlynn finished the day just 1 point shy of tying perennial club champion Jim Zimmerman! Congratulations Kaitlynn! Results for the day are: A class Trudy Phillips 1st AAA class Kaitlynn Johnson 1st Master Rocky Marsh 1st Match Champion Jim Zimmerman This summer saw a few members travelling afar to compete in provincial and national competitions. We are very proud of all our members` efforts and a few results are notable: BC Provincials Jeramey Marsh: 3rd overall Smallbore AAA class standard rifle; 2nd overall High Power A class Standard rifle Rob Mckeeman: 1st overall

Bull River Shooters Club President Bill Johnson presents a plaque in the memory of deceased members of the club to Anne Pique. Smallbore AA class standard rifle; 2nd overall smallbore AAA class hunter rifle; 1st overall High Power A class Hunter rifle Alberta Provincials Bill Johnson: 1st overall Smallbore AA class Silhouette rifle

Canadian Nationals Rob McKeeman 3rd overall Smallbore AAA class Hunter rifle; 1st overall High Power A class Standard rifle` Membership fees for the BRSA are $90.00 for the year (March 1 ~

Feb 28). Additional dependant family members may join for $15.00 each, which covers insurance costs. In addition to insurance (which includes liability protection for members if ever involved in a shooting accident) and ongoing club expenses, dues cover your participation in four club matches, scheduled throughout the season. Membership for those 65 years and up is $35.00 but does not include any match fees. Memberships can be purchased from Rob McKeeman at 250-426-2794 or 250917-2785. Memberships can also be purchased at any club match. Anyone is welcome to enter a club match, including non-members, and spectators are always welcome!

Obama, Romney make last minute pleas for support in key swing states Lee-Anne Goodman Canadian Press

WASHINGTON — With election day looming, U.S. President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney blitzed key swing states on Sunday, making impassioned, last-ditch efforts to woo voters in the final hours of one of the tightest election campaigns in recent American history. “I know I look a little bit older, but I’ve got a lot of fight left in me,’’ a raspy-voiced Obama said in New Hampshire alongside former president Bill Clinton, the onetime political foe who’s become his loyal attack dog in recent weeks. Clinton warmed up the crowd of 14,000 by taking repeated shots at Romney, mocking the Republican presidential hopeful’s shifting policy positions by saying he’d make a good “chief contortionist at Cirque du Soleil.’’ Obama, for the most part, took a higher road, imploring his supporters to keep their eyes on the prize. “If you’re willing to work with me, if you’re willing to stand with me, if you’re willing to knock on some doors with me, if you’re willing to make some phone calls with me, if you’re willing to turn out for me, we’ll win New Hampshire,’’ he

said. “We’ll win this election.’’ In Iowa, Romney took aim. “Talk is cheap,’’ he said. “But a record is real and it’s earned with real effort. You can’t measure change in speeches. You measure change in achievements .... Four years ago, the candidate Obama promised us to do an awful lot, he was going to do so much for us, but he failed very short of that.’’ Most public opinion polls have had Obama and Romney in a statistical tie nationally for weeks, but a new survey from the Pew Research Center released Sunday showed the president with a three-point lead over his rival. His improved standing in the Pew poll — last week, the candidates were tied at 47 per cent in the same survey — was apparently fuelled by Obama’s widely praised handling of the federal response to mega-storm Sandy. He’s now leading Romney 48 to 45 per cent after almost 70 per cent of the Pew respondents, most of them in swing states, gave him high marks on Sandy. Obama also maintains a slight edge in several battleground states that will determine the outcome of Tuesday’s vote.

Nonetheless each campaign was projecting an air of confidence on Sunday. Top surrogates took to the talk-show circuit to insist their man had the momentum. “I’m very confident that, two days out from election day, the president’s going to be re-elected on Tuesday night,’’ David Plouffe, a White House adviser who managed the president’s 2008 campaign, told NBC’s “Meet the Press.’’ Seven states, representing 89 electoral college votes of the 270 needed to win the White House, are considered battlegrounds: Colorado, Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio, Virginia, Florida and New Hampshire. Nevada and North Carolina are also in play for both Obama and Romney. “All these states right now, we think the president’s in a good position to win,’’ Plouffe said. Republican Eric Cantor, a Virginia congressman and the majority leader of the House of Representatives, denied his state would go Democrat, as it did in 2008 for the first time since 1964. “We’re going to win this state, and I think we’re going to win it a lot bigger than people are predicting,’’ he said on “Meet The Press.’’ “Here on the ground, there is a lot of en-

thusiasm for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.’’ It’s Ohio, however, that’s emerged the crown jewel in the race. No Republican has won the presidency without Ohio, and the path to victory becomes significantly more onerous for both Obama and Romney if they lose the socalled Buckeye State on Tuesday. Both men were in Ohio on Sunday as a new Columbus Dispatch poll suggested the state was still up for grabs, with Obama ahead by just two percentage points. Other polls have shown Obama with a bigger advantage in Ohio, but both candidates were nonetheless focused on the state, hoping to win over that slim but significant sliver of undecided voters who could seal their electoral fate. Their 11th-hour campaigning comes after months of each man portraying the other as posing profound risks to the future health and prosperity of the United States. Obama has been castigated by Republicans for a tepid economic recovery following the financial meltdown that took grim hold of the United States just as he won the White House in 2008. They’ve also accused him of

being a borderline socialist by advocating big government and a welfare state while raising taxes and running up the national debt to levels they consider obscene. Obama, in fact, has cut taxes and shrunk government during his four years in office, slashing more than half a million federal jobs since 2009. And the billions he’s spent in bailouts and economic stimulus measures are credited by many economists with preventing the U.S. from falling into the abyss of another Great Depression. The president also faced an obstructionist Congress for the past two years. On the eve of the midterm elections in October 2010, top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell said it was the party’s “single most important’’ goal to deny Obama a second term. Democrats, meantime, have warned Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, will slash cherished entitlement programs, including Medicare, and will loosen Wall Street regulations to the extent that another financial meltdown could result. They also malign Romney for switching his stances on various issues.

In Memoriam

LOST: HAMMERED GOLD, hoop earring in Cranbrook, Oct. 31. If found, please call (250)427-3263

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.

Top Ten Reasons to Advertise in a Newspaper 1. Advertise to Reach New Customers. Your market changes constantly. Advertising is tremendously helpful in directing customers to the product and services they need, and helps put you ahead of your competition.

2. Your Competition Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Quitting. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to advertise to get your share of business or lose it to the stores that do. If you cut back on your advertising, you may forfeit new prospective customers to your competition. A five year survey of more than 3,000 companies found that advertisers who maintained or expanded advertising during a troubled economy saw sales increase an average of 100%.

4. Continuous Advertising Strengthens Your Image. When people who postpone buying come back to the marketplace, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a better chance of getting their business if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve continued to maintain a solid, reliable image.

5. Direct Advertising is Cost Efficient. Direct has the advantages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; demographic and geographic numbers to afford advertisers the best value and exposure for their advertising dollar.

6. Advertise to Generate Traffic. Continuous traffic is the first step toward sales increases and expanding your base of buyers. The more people who contact you, the more possibilities you have to make sales.

7. Advertise to Make More Sales. Advertising works! Businesses that succeed are usually strong, steady advertisers. Look around. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the most aggressive and consistent advertisers are almost invariably the most successful.

8. Advertise Because There is Always Business to Generate. Salespeople are on the payroll. As long as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in business, you have overhead and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to advertise to generate a steady cash flow.

9. Advertise to Keep a Healthy Positive Image. In a troubled economy, rumors and bad news travel fast. Advertising corrects gossip, shoots down false reports and projects positively.

10. Advertise to Maintain Employee Morale. When advertising and promotion are cut, salespeople become less motivated. They may believe the store is cutting back, even going out of business.
