Ecstacy seized; youth charged Third drug-related arrest in Kimberley in 10 days C AROLYN GR ANT bulletin@cyberlink.ca

A 17 year old Kimberley youth has been arrested, with recommended charges of Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking. Cpl. Chris Newel of the Kimberley RCMP says police were notified that the young man had been attempting to sell ecstasy to high school students. He was arrested on Friday, November 2, 2012 and seven tablets of ecstasy were seized. Newel says charges of trafficking were recommended given information gained during their investigation rather than quantity of drugs. “There isn’t a threshold amount of ecstasy per se that leads to a trafficking charge,” Newel said. “It depends on the evidence you gain. If someone was arrested for an offence and seven tablets of ecstasy turned up, that would likely be possession. But in this particular case, we gained evidence that he was trying to sell it.”

Meadowbrook residents to go ahead with claim purchase

Association wants an April 1, 2013 sale date C AROLYN GR ANT bulletin@cyberlink.ca

They’ve got a long way to go and several conditions they want met, but the Meadowbrook Community Association is going ahead with their plans to purchase a mining claim near Cherry Creek. The plan is to purchase the claim for ap-

proximately $50,000 and turn the land into a park, preventing any mining from occurring. The current owner of the claim had proposed a quarry near the creek, prompting residents to organize and form an association. Community Association President Bob Johnstone says that the plan is to go ahead with the purchase, with a few conditions. They have asked for a purchase date of April 1, 2013 to give them time to raise the funds. They also want the current owner to be responsible for any outstanding debts, and

they want assurances from Mineral Tenders that no one else could stake the claim. “We need all our pre-conditions met before we really fund raise,” Johnstone said. “There are overlapping jurisdictions between Mines and Tenders. Once that is all sorted out, we’ll get going.” Even with those assurances, raising the funds is no small task. Johnstone figures they will need to raise about $55,000 to cover legal fees as well as the land purchase. They do have some money in the bank already. At a September meeting to discuss

the potential purchase with Meadowbrook residents, seven separate people donated $1000 each. And the RDEK has recently approved a $5000 grant to the Association from its Area E Discretionary Grants in Aid. The real hope, Johnstone said, is to get a couple of substantial grants. “We have approached both Teck and the Columbia Basin Trust, but Teck has already done their funding for this year and the CBT doesn’t look particularly promising right now, but you never know.”

Mount Baker is holding an Operation Christmas Child event this November. A group of seven leadership students has been organizing this project at the school. “We’ve received great responses from our school in the past,” said Melissa Von Witgenstein, one of the organizers of the event. “Imagining the joy of a child as she or he opens the box motivates me to do this project for the third year now.” Operation Christmas Child is run by the Christian organization Samaritan’s Purse. Each shoebox is filled with hygiene items, school supplies, toys and candies, along with a personal note and photo from the giver. A donation of $7 is suggested to cover the shipping fees. These shoeboxes are destined for South American and African countries as Christmas gifts for children. A total of 75 shoeboxes have been distributed among all block three

The class with the highest number of filled shoeboxes receives a free lunch. “We’re all too absorbed by the commercial aspect of Christmas,” said Christie Johnson, an English teacher at the high school whose class has won this reward for a few years. “This is a great opportunity for all of us to try to give so little that would mean so much.” After collecting all the boxes, volunteers will go over each shoebox to make sure its content is appropriate. “We’ve had a gun toy and playing cards in boxes before,” said Derissa Leung. “These items are forbidden as they might carry violence- and gambling-promoting messages.” The Operation Christmas Child boxes can also be picked up from McDonald’s and local churches.

Cull inhumane, group tells Cranbrook Council SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Using clover traps to cull deer is not an effective way to solve Cranbrook’s problems with urban wildlife, according to a national environmental group. City council on Monday, November 5 heard a presentation by Liz White, director of Animal Alliance of Canada, and Barry MacKay, the Canadian representative of Born Free U.S.A. who travelled to Cranbrook from Toronto to ask the city to reconsider its urban deer control methods. White said that culling deer in clover traps, Cranbrook’s chosen method thus far, is ineffective because it cannot target problem deer, the animals are under stress before they are killed, and more deer will move in to take the place of the deer that have been culled. Last November, Cranbrook culled 25

urban deer – 11 whitetail and 14 mule – using clover traps. It was the first of three East Kootenay communities to carry out a cull with a license from the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Cranbrook was preparing to cull another 50 deer this winter, but the plan has been placed on hold while legal action against the District of Invermere for its cull is resolved. But White suggested to council that “indiscriminate killing” of deer fails to solve complaints of aggressive deer. “Setting clover traps does not necessarily get the deer you want. That’s the issue. You are not going to solve the problem by setting clover traps because you may not get the animal you think hurt that child,” for example, said White. She said that a study found deer in clover traps suffer stress.

Nothing is easy for communities dealing with urban deer populations.

“Trapped deer experience greater stress as a result of confinement, which causes more severe physiological perturbations, and calls

into question the use of (the word) humane in the use of clover traps,” said White. What’s more, she added, because we live

in the Rocky Mountains, more deer will move in to take the place of those that have been culled. “You are not going to

solve your problem because you live in a wilderness area where there are lots of deer. Deer are in town because there is food and water and shelter. They are here for a reason,” said White. The Animal Alliance of Canada recommends the city seek provincial permits to try “hazing” the deer, where herding dogs move the deer out of town, or sterilization. Public education is also key, White said. “Such programs would also educate residents about deer behaviour and provide tools to resolve conflict. The program might even include a conflict resolution hotline as part of the education and outreach program.” Councillor Angus Davis asked White and Barry MacKay what council is expected to say to a mother whose child is attacked by a deer in a hypothetical scenario. “I would tell her to

take the child to the hospital,” said MacKay. “I can’t categorically say there is no risk to your child, but I can say statistically it is so very remote.” Davis responded: “That’s not a very good answer.” “You don’t think the child should be taken to the hospital?” said MacKay. “That’s so crude,” said Councillor Davis. Mayor Wayne Stetski explained to the pair that B.C. municipalities experiencing urban deer conflicts have asked the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to provide clear direction on what they can and cannot do to address the deer problem. Stetski said that the report from the Animal Alliance of Canada will be presented to the city’s urban deer management committee, and forwarded to the ministry.

Local science whiz goes international ANNALEE GR ANT Townsman Staff

There isn’t a science fair in the world that can slow down Mount Baker Secondary School student Keltie Murdoch. The Grade 12 student has taken on yet another hurdle – and cleared it – after being accepted out of 30 students across B.C. to attend the Taiwan International Science Fair in February 2013. “I am really looking forward to the experience of sharing my ideas with professionals and peers from all over the world, and hearing about what they’re working on, or developing,” the East Kootenay Regional Science Fair (EKRSF) alum told the Townsman. The B.C. team that will head to Taiwan was announced on October 26 at the Science Fair Foundation of BC (SFF BC) Innovation Exploration gathering at the University of B.C.’s Mu-

seum of Anthropology. Keltie will be joined by Grade 10 student Kevala Von Volkenburg from Fort St. John on the trip. “I feel very lucky to have been chosen. I know that each of the students that applied had just as much of a chance as I did,” Keltie said. “I am not sure what sets me apart from the other applicants, but I am prepared to take on the task of representing Canada in Taiwan.” But Keltie isn’t the only Cranbrook resident heading to Asia to represent her country. Her very own mentor and College of the Rockies program co-ordinator and instructor Sandi Lavery was chosen as the educator to accompany the B.C. pair. Sandi said the last time an educator was chosen from this area was in 2003 when Judy Gadick from Creston traveled with students from Vancouver and Haida Gwaii.

Darcy Verbeurgt, chair of the EKRSF, said the Taiwan fair welcomes students from the Pacific Rim, meaning Mexico, Chile, the U.S. and B.C. in the Americas. Each country

selects two representatives out of their top students that exemplify innovation and creativity. “If you boil it down to the number of people who participate in fairs in B.C. every year, it’s a

big deal,” he said. “It’s the cream de la cream.” Both Keltie and Sandi may be going to the same event, but both will have very different experiences. Keltie will room with a

homestay family and attend the fair, while Sandi will meet with the 18 other delegates and tour science facilities in Taiwan. Sandi said she’s really excited to learn how

other teachers around the world teach science. Her tour will take her to the Taiwanese National Science Centre and to the Taipei 101 – the highest building in the world until 2010 when it was eclipsed by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. Rather than view it as a tourist, the educators will get to learn all about the engineering side of the building and how it was constructed. “They keep you really busy from what I hear,” Sandi said. Keltie is looking forward to the international trip and meeting new people along the way. “I’m excited to tour the city of Taipei with both my delegation and the family that will be hosting me for part of my trip,” she said. Verbeurgt said Keltie more than fits the bill for Canada’s representative, and it will be great exposure for her project.

Cranbrook student heading to Taiwan From Page 3 “It just gives me shivers to think what an awesome experience it will be for her,” he said. For Keltie, participating in science fairs has been a great opportunity to learn from others. “My favourite part of participating in science fairs is the judging and networking,” she said. “I love having conversations with like-minded people who are excited

to talk to me and hear about my project.” The local EKRSF is set for March 1 and 2, 2013, but there will be one familiar face absent from the competition. Keltie has chosen to step back and move into a volunteering role. “This year I have decided to become active in volunteering for our regional fair,” she said. “I think it’s important for younger kids to have a role model close to

their own age in something as necessary as science.” Keltie’s life wouldn’t have been the same without her entries into the EKRSF and CanadaWide Science Fair the past few years, and she hopes her experience can help others. “Being involved in these fairs has changed my life so much,” Keltie said. “I have been waiting for the opportunity to reach out to younger

students who are curious about science and show them that science fairs open countless doors of opportunity for them to explore their interests, answer their questions, and learn to solve problems.” “I am hoping to be able to take time to go into schools and speak to classes to tell them more of what the science fair is about.” Keltie also has another thing keeping her

busy: the prospect of graduating in June has her furiously applying for universities, seeking scholarships and planning her next step into post secondary life. “I’m very proud of her,” Sandi said. Once the trio return to B.C. with their stories and experiences, Sandi said their work is not done. The three will have to write a report on how to improve science, innovation and tech-

From Page 1 The youth has bee released pending a court date on December 3. He will be tried as a young offender, Newel said. As a condition of his release he must not go to Selkirk Secondary School (he is not a student at the school) and he must not possess a cell phone/Blackberry or other electronic communication device. This is the third drug-related arrest in the Kimberley area in the past ten days. While the Kimberley/Cranbrook detachment may not have a special drug project, they do have resources targeted specifically at drug investigations. “We all identify targets and receive information,” Newel said. “But we do have dedicated resources to focus on drugs, particularly trafficking. That is our concern. That’s why we’re seeing these arrests.” Names of the two other Kimberley men arrested have now been released. Jason Dimma, who was arrested on October 31, was held in custody and pled to several offences in court on November 5. He was sentenced to nine months in jail. The other man, Murray Simonson, who was arrested on October 24, had his case adjourned to November 19, 2012.

Americans were really voting to become more Canadian

T

MICHAEL DEN TANDT Postmedia News

his is the amazing, intriguing subtext — or maybe it’s a dominant theme — of Tuesday night’s decisive Electoral College victory by incumbent and now, more than ever, history-making U.S. President Barack Obama: The United States is becoming, well, Canadian. That will seem like a wild exaggeration to some. But consider. The campaign itself was as nasty and divisive as always on the advertising side, and at street level. But at the presidential level, especially, there was courtesy. Romney-haters will disagree. But at no time in this campaign, certainly not in public, did Romney bare his fangs in anything like a Rush Limbaugh-style display of rage. He was aggressive but respectful. More to the point, his policy positions — during the campaign at least — were centrist. But it was too little centrism, too late. Romney lost by a wide margin in the Electoral College, 303 to 206. The popular vote, no surprise, was almost evenly split, with Obama winning narrowly. On the face of it, the outcome could have been quite different. But if you drill into results in the swing states, in particular northeastern rust-belt jurisdictions clustered around the Great Lakes, such as Wisconsin, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio, it’s clear that Romney never really had a chance. These states are populated mainly by white, working-class folk who’ve been hit hard by the historic downturn in North American heavy manufacturing. They should have been disaffected with Obama and many of them were. But not enough. Blue-collar hero Bruce Springsteen, a huge Obama fan, seems closer to capturing the

new ethos than, say, honky-tonk man and GOP favourite Hank Williams Jr. In Florida, in 2000 the final arbiter, the results were even more striking. Romney absolutely needed Florida, with its 29 Electoral College votes, to counter California’s 55, always certain to go Democrat. He fully expected to win Florida. But in the populous counties of the southeast coast — Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach — Romney struck out, resoundingly. Not coincidentally, South Florida has a large Hispanic American population. The GOP, with its Tea Party-driven hostility to immigration, failed utterly to bring this group onside. Indeed, it didn’t particularly try. That was a fatal mistake. This is a historic, demographics-driven shift, captured — ironically — by GOP backer Clint Eastwood in his film Grand Torino. In the movie, Eastwood plays a salt-of-the-earth white Republican of Eisenhower vintage, beset by Asian, Hispanic and black neighbours on all sides. His car, the mythical Grand Torino, is a metaphor for and homage to the old America — white, blue-collar, Christian, conservative, and able to build things that last forever — that’s disappearing. The movie may as well have been crafted as a prelude to this election. But it’s the state-by-state propositions, non-presidential ballot items, that truly jump out. In Michigan, voters turned thumbs-down to billionaire Matty Moroun’s cockeyed scheme to stop a new bridge being built between Windsor and Detroit. That may not be explicitly a vote for Canada, but it’s certainly not isolationism or protectionism. In Maryland, Maine, Washington State and Colorado, meanwhile, Canadian-ness is spreading like a bad rash. The first three

jurisdictions approved same-sex marriage by plebiscite — the first time this has ever happened. The latter two have legalized recreational marijuana. These outcomes have national import: As The Associated Press’s David Crary points out, the U.S. Justice Department must now determine how to deal with legalized pot, which it still considers illegal, and the Supreme Court will be expected to consider new state precedents in future hearings on same-sex marriage. Ah, I hear you say — but Canada hasn’t legalized pot. In fact, the Harper government moved in the opposite direction with omnibus crime bill C-10, imposing harsh new sentences for growers of as few as six plants. That may be so — but as Americans have once again shown, popular sentiment leads. The Harper government has gone all Grand Torino on crime, because it’s one area where it can court social conservatives in its base without sparking a fierce backlash among progressives. But that doesn’t make the marijuana measures popular: Indeed C-10 was an omnibus bill for that very reason, lumping the good — tougher penalties for sex crimes against children — with the dumb. The best argument against decriminalization was always the one made by police: That easing restrictions here would cause too jarring a disruption at the border, given American official aversion to pot. If that aversion wanes, the goalposts here move. For Canadian economic conservatives, this election may be a disappointment. But for social progressives on both sides of the border it’s good news — and further evidence that a confident, diverse and tolerant Canada has the capacity to lead trends in the North American relationship, as well as follow.

Those six fathers will be back in Provincial Court in Creston on Wednesday fighting to gain access to their children. Ripping families apart. Reassigning women and children as if they have no more worth than furniture. Denying children their basic right to a safe and secure home, education and choices about everything from what they want to be to who they want to marry. These are all part of the longstanding dysfunction that has set apart this entire community since its founding in 1946. It afflicts both the 500 or so followers of Jeffs and the 500 or so others who stuck with former FLDS bishop Winston Blackmore, who himself has impregnated nine underage girls. Despite frequent complaints over the years about the crimes committed within Bountiful, from polygamy to sexual exploitation to human trafficking and misdemeanours such as poor education inflicted on the religious loyalists, the community has flourished. Little more than a year ago, following a lengthy hearing into the constitutionality of Canada’s anti-polygamy law, the chief justice of B.C.’s Supreme Court determined polygamy is at the root of the evil in Bountiful. He determined that its inherent harms override all of the other guarantees in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Yet, the government has done nothing about polygamy. And it remains as deaf and dumb to all of its evils as it has been for nearly 70 years. Daphne Bramham is a columnist with the Vancouver Sun

Charles Bukowski In this case, “best” is Bukowski writing about his own life, which highlighted “the defeated, the demented and the damned.” His novels, short stories, and poetry appeared to tell one overarching story of bars, rundown motels, prostitutes, filthy underwear, hangovers and violence. Unlike other writers whose work is autobiographical, Bukowski never makes himself look heroic or come out on top. It is this “nothing-to-lose truthfulness” which has set him apart and above his contemporaries. Three feature films have been made about Bukowski, with Ben Gazzara, Mickey Rourke, and Matt Dillon play-

ing the hard life poet (“Tales of Ordinary Madness”, “Barfly” and “Factotum”). A host of documentary films have also appeared over the years, and there are currently a dozen book-length biographies in print. His death in 1994 didn’t interrupt his output, as 10 books have been published posthumously. Bukowski’s stories and poems aren’t for everybody. They are written to shock, and frequently describe grotesque sex, painful urination, and bowel movements. But it is his cry of alienation — such as published in the collection “It Catches My Heart In Its Hands” — which renders much of his work meaningful and important. “Some people never go crazy,” Bukowski wrote in the early ‘80s. “What truly horrible lives they must lead.” Mike Selby is Reference Librarian at the Cranbrook Public Library

Local lacrosse prodigy Dakota Hollister has returned home from a high-level tournament in the U.S. where his team beat out five others to claim the championship. Hollister, along with the rest of the Adrenaline Tropics, defeated the Maryland Roughriders 9-6 to take the tournament crown, redeeming themselves by beating the only team they fell to in round-robin action. It was an ideal location for a lacrosse tourney, as Naples, FL., hosted the event, which featured many teams in different divisions, however, Hollister and the Tropics competed at the highest level. Hollister, who has committed his lacrosse skills to Bellarmine University in Kentucky, played alongside other athletes who had signed on to post-secondary lacrosse squads for the 2013 academic year. The Tropics dropped an overtime decision to

the Roughriders during round-robin action, but blew through the other four teams to finish at the top of their pool. They beat Carolina Lite, out of North Carolina in the semi-final, to earn their berth in the championship game. Right after the tournament, his coach invited him to another tournament in Arizona this weekend, in another tournament showcasing top-level high school talent from across the U.S. It’s been the first highlevel lacrosse Hollister has played since September, as the young 17-year-old has been recovering from a car accident, which gave him a concussion. “I haven’t played in a while, so I needed to start playing again, because I can’t just go to college all rusty,” said Hollister. “So I wanted to get back into that high level, just to get used to it again. “It was fun, I was rusty for the first few games, but then it all came back pretty quick.”

Avs’ Duthie named player of the week TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Mitchell Duthie of the men’s Avalanche volleyball team has been named the Pacwest player of the week following his performance this weekend against the Columbia Bible College Bearcats. Duthie, a 6’6” right side player from Prince George, is in his first year at the College of the Rockies. With no post-secondary volleyball in Prince George, Duthie found his

way to Cranbrook where he decided to start his career. In their first home stand of the season, Duthie was instrumental in the Avs weekend sweep over CBC. Duthie led the Avs offensively to two consecutive 3-0 sweeps over the Bearcats. He was a physical presence in both matches, continually putting balls away and putting up a large wall for the Avalanche to play defense. His domination at the

net resulted in some timely kills, including the match winning kill on Saturday in a 30-28 hard fought set. He finished the weekend with 21 kills including 35 per cent kill efficiency for the Avs. Duthie is the second Avalanche player to be nominated for the Pacwest athlete of the week, as women’s team member Andrea Taylor took the honour after the opening road trip against Douglas College and Capilano University two weeks ago.

Taylor had a strong performance over the four-match weekend, finishing with 80 Kills (5.3 kills per match), 37 digs, three aces and one block. Along with being named Pacwest athlete of the week, Taylor was recognized by the Canadian College Athletic Association as the nationwide CCAA athlete of the week. Taylor is a fourthyear player studying kinesiology at the College of the Rockies.

NHL negotiating for second straight day Chris Johnston Canadian Press

NEW YORK - With a snow storm in Manhattan making it feel like hockey season on Wednesday night, the NHL and NHL Players’ Association held another long bargaining session in a bid to get the game back on the ice. The top negotiators spent more than five hours discussing revenue sharing and the “make whole” provision and were expected to continue with those topics when talks resumed Thursday. Bargaining has taken on a new level of urgency this week. Privately, the sides acknowledged that they are engaged in meaningful back-andforth negotiations for the first time, which helps explain their decision to

meet in an undisclosed location and refrain from making public comments afterwards. On Wednesday night, neither the NHL or NHLPA gave an update on progress. The lengthy meetings seemed to suggest a push was on to save as much of the disrupted season as possible. Once a CBA is eventually ratified, a source indicated it would likely be 10 days before the puck could be dropped on meaningful games - a span that would see players given three days to report to their teams and seven days for training camp. The labour dispute has clearly inflicted some short-term damage on a league that hauled in a record US$3.3-billion in revenues last season. With all regular-sea-

son games through Nov. 30 having been cancelled, along with the Jan. 1 Winter Classic, the negotiations are at a delicate stage. The sides are finally in a position to get some momentum going after meeting for a significant amount of time over consecutive days, but failing to emerge with progress could also end up bringing about another quiet period. Plenty of work remains to be done at the bargaining table, starting with the “make whole” provision that is viewed as an important hurdle to cross before reaching a new deal. The sides seem to have agreed that the players’ share in revenue will drop to 50 per cent at some point during the next CBA. The union wants assurances that all

of the contracts agreed to under the previous system, which saw players receive 57 per cent, will be made whole - meaning they’ll be paid out in full. After agreeing to take less revenue, the NHLPA doesn’t believe it should have to offer concessions on the contract issues that were covered Tuesday. The league has proposed changes to unrestricted free agency, entry-level deals, arbitration and contract lengths. Revenue sharing is another important issue, with the NHL having already proposed increasing its annual pool of funds to approximately $200 million each season. The union asked for even more and is seeking to restructure the way that money is distribut-

Lockout affecting Molson Coors beer sales Ross Marowits Canadian Press

MONTREAL - Molson Coors says the NHL lockout has forced the beer company into the penalty box by reducing beer sales across Canada for its marquee brands. The Montreal and Denver-based brewer said the financial impact of the nearly twomonth labour dispute is difficult to tabulate, but

the company’s most important cold-weather driver of sales has disappeared. “Whether it’s people not actually physically going to the venues and consuming there, consuming in venues around the outlet before that, or indeed having NHL sort of parties at home, all of those occasions have disappeared off the map and you just can’t replicate them,”

CEO Peter Swinburn said in an interview Wednesday. The impact is more pronounced in Canada than in the United States and has particularly hurt sales of Coors Light and Molson Canadian. “It’s a national sport, the whole of Canada is glued to it one way or another so there’s no real regional difference at the moment that we can detect.”

Swinburn said that once the lockout ends, Molson Coors will seek financial compensation from the league over the negative impact that a lack of games has had on the hockey league sponsor. “There will be some redress for us as a result of this. I can’t quantify that and I don’t know because I don’t know the scale of how long the lockout is going to last.”

ed. All signs indicate that a concerted effort is being made. This is the first time in a number of weeks that talks have stretched over three days and Daly called off a planned trip to Ottawa, where he had been scheduled to visit Parliament Hill on Thursday to speak to a committee about sports betting.

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. - Canada’s Jason Bay and the New York Mets ended their unproductive relationship after three miserable seasons when they agreed Wednesday to terminate the outfielder’s contract with one guaranteed season remaining. The deal makes the 34-year-old from Trail, B.C., a free agent and allows the team to spread out the remaining US$21 million it owes him. “I still feel I have plenty to give to this game and that I can play baseball at a high level. But after serious consideration, both sides agree that we would benefit from a fresh start,” Bay said in a statement released by the team. After signing a $66 million, four-year deal before the 2010 season, the three-time all-star hit .234 in three injuryplagued seasons with 26 homers and 124

RBIs, including a .165 average with eight homers and 20 RBIs this year. Sidelined by concussions and rib injuries, he played just 288 games for the Mets. “I’m grateful we were able to reach an agreement to allow that to happen,” Bay said. “I’m excited to keep playing and have no intention of just walking away. I enjoyed my time in New York. I have no regrets in signing with the Mets, other than that I wasn’t able to play to the level that the team, the fans and I all expected and

CITY OF CRANBROOK SNOW REMOVAL POLICY

As this winter season approaches, we want to remind you of the City of Cranbrook current Snow and Ice Control procedures to better understand why the City clears snow the way it does. The policy in place clearly identifies four levels of priorities for streets for City crews to follow:

STREETS Classification “A” – FIRST PRIORITY Major streets, hospital zones, roads that access emergency service facilities, roads with severe grades and transit routes will be cleared first. In some instances, snowfall is heavy enough and continual during the plowing process, that Residents are also encouraged to avoid pushing once these routes are cleared crews need to or blowing snow from their sidewalks, driveways start them over again.

because that detail was not announced. “Jason has a tremendous work ethic. There was never any question about it,” Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said. “Unfortunately, the results weren’t there, and we are in a results-oriented business.” Bay joins the exodus of big-name players from the Mets, who have finished fourth in the NL East for four straight years.

U.S. states legalize marijuana, support same-sex marriage David Cr ary Associated Press

Maine and Maryland became the first states to approve same-sex marriage by popular vote, while Washington state and Colorado set up a showdown with federal authorities by legalizing recreational use of marijuana. The outcomes for those ballot measures Tuesday were a milestone for persistent but often thwarted advocacy groups and activists who for decades have pressed the causes of gay rights and drug decriminalization. “Today the state of Washington looked at 70 years of marijuana prohibition and said it’s time for a new approach,’’ said Alison Holcomb, manager of the campaign that won passage of Initiative 502 in Washington state. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat who opposed legalization, was less enthused. “Federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug, so don’t

People attending an Amendment 64 watch party in a bar celebrate after a local television station announced the marijuana amendment’s passage, in Denver, Colo., Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012. break out the Cheetos or gold fish too quickly,’’ he said. The results in Maine and Maryland broke a 32-state streak, dating to 1998, in which gay marriage had been rebuffed by every state that voted on it. They will become the seventh and eighth states to allow same-sex couples to marry. In another gay-rights

victory, Minnesota voters defeated a conservative-backed amendment that would have placed a ban on samesex marriage in the state constitution. Even though the amendment was defeated, same-sex marriage remains illegal in Minnesota under statute. “The tide has turned — when voters have the

opportunity to really hear directly from loving, committed samesex couples and their families, they voted for fairness,’’ said Rick Jacobs of the Courage Campaign, a Californiabased gay rights group. “Those who oppose the freedom to marry for committed couples are clearly on the wrong side of history.’’

B.C. reacts to marijuana legalization C anadian Press

NDP leader Adrian Dix predicts groundbreaking votes to revise pot policies in Washington State and Colorado will open the door to more debate on marijuana laws in this country. Dix says BC New Democrats favour decriminalizing marijuana and he believes the US vote could force that issue onto Canadian campaign platforms during the next federal election. In referendums last night, Washington state and Colorado approved legalized recreational use of marijuana, but that doesn’t mean the pungent smell of pot will be wafting over both states. That’s because adults in Colorado can now possess a small amount of marijuana, but using the drug publicly is still banned – and in Washington State, a potentially lucrative tax system can’t be imposed on pot sales until legislators write the rules to govern the legal weed industry. Meanwhile, B.C. pot activist Jodie Emery says legalization of marijua-

na in two US states is a huge boost to the promarijuana movement. She believes the changes will cut crossborder drug trafficking because organized crime won’t be able to compete with lower

prices from licenced, legal growers. She also predicts marijuana tourists will flock to the two US states to check out state-run legal pot sales – and that traffic, alone, will keep BC officials watching

The marijuana measures in Colorado and Washington will likely pose a headache for the U.S. Justice Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration, which consider pot an illegal drug. The DOJ has declined to say how it would respond if the measures were approved. Colorado’s Amendment 64 will allow adults over 21 to possess up to an ounce (28 grams) of marijuana, though using the drug publicly would be banned. The amendment would allow people to grow up to six marijuana plants in a private, secure area. Washington state’s measure establishes a system of state-licensed marijuana growers, processors and stores, where adults can buy up to an ounce. It also establishes a standard blood test limit for driving under the influence. The Washington measure was notable for its sponsors and supporters, who ranged from public health experts and wealthy hightech executives to two former top Justice De-

partment’s officials in Seattle, U.S. Attorneys John McKay and Kate Pflaumer. Estimates show pot taxes could bring in hundreds of millions of dollars a year, but the sales won’t start until state officials make rules to govern the legal weed industry. The Washington measure was opposed by Derek Franklin, president of the Washington Association for Substance Abuse and Violence Prevention. “Legalizing is going

to increase marijuana use among kids and really create a mess with the federal government,’’ Franklin said. “It’s a bit of a tragedy for the state.’’ In Oregon, a marijuana-legalization measure was defeated. In Massachusetts, voters approved a measure to allow marijuana use for medical reasons, joining 17 other states. Arkansas voters rejected a similar measure. In all, 176 measures were on the ballots Tuesday in 38 states.

Turkey Drive Day Wednesday, December 5th Did you know the need for Christmas Hampers in our community is in excess of 750 this year? With the average Christmas hamper costing approximately $85.00 that means that both the Salvation Army and the Cranbrook Food Bank need $64,000 to fill that need. For the past few years, the Cranbrook & District Chamber of Commerce has

spearheaded the annual Turkey Drive and has been able to provide funding to these hard working agencies. The community has helped us raise over $40,000 for these agencies and that means you have helped to fund 30% of the need. The Directors & staff of the Cranbrook & District Chamber of Commerce need your support. We want to ensure that

every family in Cranbrook will enjoy a Christmas Dinner. Join us on December 5 th by pledging or donating to purchase a turkey. It’s simple and inexpensive. Only $20.00. Jason Wheeldon, CTC (Chief Turkey Chair) and Warren Bedell are once again chairing this important event.

While many in B.C. are vocal about what they’re against, being in favour of something is even more vital

By Wayne Cox, Gavin Dirom and Tom Sigurdson And John Winter, Vancouver Sun, October 29, 2012 http://www.vancouversun.com/Building+economy+requires+pla nning/7462589/story.html From our rugged environment, generations of British Columbians built a province where prosperity is widely shared. And from our efforts - over many years and with governments of different political stripes - B.C. built a strong middle class and a vibrant entrepreneurial culture that to this day remains the backbone of our economy and our society. B.C.’s economic and natural advantages have helped us weather many storms. Even as the global economy struggles through a period of turmoil and uncertainty, in B.C. we are still creating new jobs.

In Cranbrook Nov 8-Nov 14

Building Economy Requires Planning

And while other jurisdictions have had to slash important public services to balance budgets, here at home health care and education remain strong even as the government tightens its belt. But as resilient as B.C. is, we are not immune to global economic forces. As a small economy that is dependent on open trade, those forces will eventually overtake us unless steps are taken today to secure our prosperity for tomorrow. And that means we have to ask ourselves some tough questions and have an informed discussion about what that future looks like - a serious debate about what it takes to make sure we continue to grow and provide new opportunities for workers, families and young people. But quite frankly, we are avoiding the debate. And in so doing, we believe we are putting at risk all those things that make B.C. strong and give us hope for a prosperous future. Just open a newspaper or turn on the evening news and you can see the problem. Yes, there is a tremendous amount to say about all those things we are against - be it a new dam, a pipeline, a mine, or even a highway upgrade. Without exception, the voices raised against economic development dominate the headlines. But there is precious little conversation about just what exactly we are for. It’s as though the billions of dollars of investment, the countless new jobs, and the money flowing into communities across B.C. that new projects can provide just doesn’t matter. Opponents of new economic developments seem to believe we can maintain our standard of living without building anything new and without investing in the infrastructure that is the lifeblood of any sustainable and

growing economy.

Well, we say it’s time to change the conversation. We say it’s time to have an honest and realistic debate about what it’s going to take to grow British Columbia’s economy, create new economic opportunities, and give our young people hope for the future.

Such a debate about our future starts with the recognition that we can’t distribute or share wealth we don’t create. It’s folly to think otherwise. After all, the hospitals, schools and public services we value don’t come free. They are built with the revenues produced by skilled workers and businesses in this province.

That’s the way B.C. was built over many generations and that’s how B.C. will grow for the next generation. It’s that simple. And those of us who believe B.C.’s future requires us to harness the potential of our people and resources have to have the courage to say so.

Of course, every new economic development project has to be judged on its merits. They have to be planned thoughtfully with a view to their overall strategic impact on the economy.

The era of top-down, one size fits all decision-making is over. The public needs be included in decisions, important environmental values must be adhered to and First Nations must be included in the decisions that affect their lives and their future. The world has changed and we have to change with it.

But that does not mean we give up on the idea that we derive our quality of life from our natural wealth. That would be to give up on the very potential we have as a province and on what makes us strong. If we do that, we will consign future generations to a rapidly declining standard of living in an economy that can’t support the services we depend on. And that’s a future no one wants.

So let’s not only talk about what we are against. That’s the easy part. Let’s get serious and start talking about what we are for.

Wayne Cox is executive secretary-treasurer of the British Columbia Regional Council of Carpenters; Gavin C. Dirom is president and CEO of the Association for Mineral Exploration BC; Tom Sigurdson is executive director of BC Building Trades; and John Winter is president and CEO of the BC Chamber of Commerce.

It was such a pleasure to have Kathy Callies come to Cranbrook and be our guest speaker at our October Chamber luncheon. She told the story of her community and how they turned their economy around. What a great topic to have during Small Business Week. Chamber members, Directors, and Staff enjoyed a combined Kimberley and Cranbrook networking event held at the Canadian Rockies International Airport. People from both communities enjoyed beverages and appetizers while mingling with each other at the Airport. A networking luncheon at St Eugene was another unique opportunity. There were representatives of BC’s International Trade and Investment from China, USA, Europe, India, South Korea, and Japan that were finding out more about the Kootenays, all that it has to offer, and making connections for those businesses that are interested in expanding internationally. We have just wrapped up our Business Satisfaction Survey and look forward to presenting the results to the City of Cranbrook.

Toews suggests teen prisoner Ashley Smith not a victim C ANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Opposition critics denounced Public Safety Minister Vic Toews as coldhearted and contemptible Tuesday after he appeared to suggest that Ashley Smith — a troubled teen who choked to death in prison as guards stood watch — was not a victim. Toews raised the ire of opposition parties

when he deflected questions about Smith’s death by accusing the NDP of caring more about prisoners than their victims. His strategy was at odds with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who last week called Smith’s death a tragedy and ordered the Correctional Service of Canada to drop efforts to limit the scope of an inquest into the cir-

cumstances surrounding her death. Harper’s sympathetic response followed the release of disturbing videos of the teen’s time in prison, which showed Smith being duct-taped by guards and injected against her will with powerful anti-psychotic drugs. Under repeated questioning Tuesday by New Democrats in the House of Commons,

Toews initially stuck to the script. ``This tragedy continues to show that individuals with mental health issues do not belong in prisons but in professional facilities,’’ he said, going on to enumerate various measures the Harper government has implemented to deal with the problem. But he then launched into a parti-

san attack. ``I would note that the NDP, while consistently speaking on behalf of prisoners, never speaks on behalf of the victims of these prisoners,’’ he said, urging New Democrats to take ``a more balanced view about what it means to have a safe society.’’ NDP Leader Tom Mulcair sprang to his feet with a short riposte: ``Is that minister capable of understanding that she (Smith) was the victim here?’’ Outside the Commons, a visibly angry Mulcair said Toews simply doesn’t recognize that Smith was a victim of the corrections system’s inability to cope with mental illness. ``Mr. Toews doesn’t get that and it shows a cold-heartedness and a partisan streak that simply fails to recognize that we’re dealing with a human being who was abominably treated by the system and who wound up dying,’’ said Mulcair. ``And, instead of showing compassion and care and responsibility for that, he turned

it into his typical partisan rant and it’s beneath contempt the way

MP Vic Toews the minister answered this afternoon.’’ Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae called Toews’ remarks ``completely unacceptable.’’ ``I think by choosing to turn it into some kind of a partisan issue, he shows that, frankly, he just doesn’t get it. And it shows that he doesn’t really understand to what extent Ms. Smith really in this particular case is clearly the victim.,” Rae said. A spokeswoman for Toews later sent a lengthy email reiterating his view that the Smith case ``is a very tragic incident’’ that demonstrates the need

to find alternatives to prison for the mentally ill. She did not address the controversy over the minister’s earlier insinuation that Smith was not a victim. Smith, who was from Moncton, N.B., was first arrested at 13 for assault and causing a disturbance. She continued to find herself in trouble for making harassing phone calls and pulling a fire alarm, then was first thrown in jail at 15 for throwing crab apples at a postal worker. She eventually wound up in the federal prison system where, during the last year of her life, she was transferred 17 times among nine different prisons. She spent much of her final year in segregation due to repeated instances of self-harm and choking herself. Smith died at only 19 years of age in a Kitchener, Ont., prison after wrapping a strip of cloth around her neck and choking herself. Guards, who were standing watch outside her cell, did not step in. They maintain they were instructed not to intervene.

Students may never return to site of deadly school accident C ANADIAN PRESS

ST. PAUL, Alta. — Students forced out of an Alberta school where a minivan crashed into a classroom, killing an 11-year-old girl, may never return to the building. Glen Brodziak, superintendent of St. Paul Education, said Tuesday that students at Racette Junior High School will not have to go back if they don’t want to. ``We’re definitely not going to want to put students or staff back in a place that gives them a significant amount of trauma.’’

He said repairs have yet to be made to the building since the crash last month in St. Paul, a town 200 kilometres east of Edmonton. The van smashed through a window of the school and dove straight into a lowerlevel Grade 6 French class. Three girls were pinned under the van and had to be airlifted to hospital. One of them, Megan Wolitski, died the next day. The driver of the van, Richard Benson, faces various charges including criminal negligence causing death. His family has said he

has a history of seizures and they think he was having an attack at the time of the crash. The 250 Racette students have temporarily moved to St. Paul Regional High School. It’s a bit of a tight squeeze, said Brodziak, but it’s the best solution right now. ``Given the magnitude of the accident and the effects and impacts of it ... if (the repairs) were ready tomorrow we wouldn’t be going back. We’re in no hurry right at this point.’’ The school where the crash happened

was only being used by Racette students temporarily. An $8-million renovation of the original Racette Junior High has been underway for more than a year. A spokeswoman with Alberta Infrastructure said the construction work on the original Racette school is on track to be finished by the end of February, but can’t be done before that. Brodziak said the students could wait and move from the high school to the renovated school without returning to the site of the deadly crash.

C ANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — The Harper government is optimistic that the Keystone XL pipeline will finally move forward now that the presidential politicking south of the border is finished. Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver says he’s confident the newly re-elected ad-

ministration of Barack Obama will see the economic benefits of the pipeline that would carry crude from the Alberta oilsands to U.S. refineries in the Gulf of Mexico. Obama delayed approval of the project until next year — after Tuesday’s presidential election — after environmental groups put

enormous pressure on his government. Oliver says the pipeline will create jobs in Canada and the United States. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was not pleased with Obama’s decision to delay approval, but has said he understands the realities of U.S. presidential politics.

Lawsuit launched against Catholic group over sex abuse C ANADIAN PRESS

WINNIPEG — Six men from a reserve in northwestern Ontario are suing Roman Catholic organizations in Manitoba and Ontario over alleged sexual abuse. The men from the Lac la Croix First Nation claim they were abused by a priest in

the 1960s. The lawsuit names Les Oblats de Marie Immaculee du Manitoba, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Thunder Bay and the Government of Canada. The six First Nations men, who now range in age from 55 to 61, say they were abused when they were as young as

nine-years-old. Statements of claim contain allegations that have not been proven in court and statements of defence have not been filed. The men’s lawyer, Israel Ludwig, says the priest, who has since died, was a missionary in the First Nation community.

Election clears path to new border bridge C ANADIAN PRESS

TORONTO — Prime Minister Stephen Harper is welcoming the decision by voters in Michigan to reject a proposal for a referendum on the construction of a new bridge connecting their state and Ontario. ``We’re very pleased to see the support of the people of Michigan for the bridge between Detroit and Windsor, which is very important to the economies of our two countries,’’ Harper told reporters in India where he’s on a trade mission. The measure was engineered by Manuel ``Matty’’ Moroun, owner of the private Ambassador Bridge in Detroit. It came in response to the proposed construction of a bridge that the Harper Conservatives have offered to finance. Moroun wants instead to build a new span of his own, and he spent millions of advertising dollars to support the ballot proposal.

Earthquake rocks Guatemala Romina Ruiz-Goiriena Associated Press

GUATEMALA CITY — A strong earthquake struck off the Pacific coast of Guatemala Wednesday morning, rocking the capital and shaking buildings as far away as Mexico City and El Salvador. Guatemala’s emergency management agency said on its Twitter account that it had received preliminary reports of one death from the quake. The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there was a possibility of a local tsunami, within 100 or 200 miles of the epicenter, but it was not issuing an immediate warning for the broader region. The magnitude-7.4 quake, about 20 miles deep, was centred about 15 miles off the coastal town of Champerico and about 100 miles southwest of Guatemala City. Nicaragua’s disaster management agency said it had issued a local tsunami alert, but there were no immediate reports of a tsunami on the country’s Pacific coast. People fled buildings in Guatemala City, in Mexico

People who work in office buildings along El Paseo de la Reforma listen to instructions after evacuating their offices in Mexico City, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012. City and in the capital of the Mexican state of Chiapas, across the border from Guatemala. A reporter in San Marcos, a mountainous, mostly rural region about 80 miles north of the epicenter, told local radio station Emisoras Unidas that houses had collapsed onto residents and smashed televisions and other appliances had been scattered into the streets of

the main town. The local fire department said on its Twitter account that a school had collapsed and eight injured people had been taken to a nearby hospital. Local radio reported widespread power outages and cuts in telephone service. Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina said in a radio interview that the country of 14 million had

been placed on its highest level of disaster alert and he asked people to evacuate tall buildings as an emergency measure. The country’s minister of communications and infrastructure told Emisoras Unidas that landslides had cut off several highways in the west of the country, and it would take at least 24 hours to reestablish transport links to San Marcos.

Gov. Rick Snyder brokered the Canadian-financed deal in June and opposed Moroun’s ballot measure. He says Moroun’s motivation is to maintain a near monopoly on truck and trade traffic. Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak said he’s glad the statewide vote proposal was defeated. ``The Windsor-Detroit trade corridor is the most significant trade corridor that we have,’’ he said. ``It’s where the most goods and services cross. It leads to jobs here in Ontario, as well as Michigan and other states.’’ The Ontario Trucking Association called it ``terrific news,’’ as Proposal 6 would have held up construction of the second bridge. It ``shows that the people of Michigan reject the self-interest and cronyism that so many of the state’s legislators have fallen victim to in recent years,’’ David Bradley, president of the Ontario Trucking Association.

NDP cries foul over paying to pay bills Terry Pedwell Canadian Press

OTTAWA — Making people ``pay to pay’’ is unfair and needs to be stopped, the federal Opposition said Wednesday, urging the Harper government to ban companies from charging fees for sending monthly bills by mail. A number of telephone, Internet and other firms have recently begun charging customers fees if they want paper bills delivered. ``Making folks pay to pay,’’ is a cash cow that needs to be put down, said New Democrat MP Andrew Cash. ``It isn’t as though these companies are offering a new service for this,’’ Cash told a news conference. ``This is a new fee for an old service. It isn’t fair.’’ Bell, as an example, says it charges $2 to offset the costs of producing and mailing a printed bill. There is no charge for getting a

bill over the Internet. ``You can save paper and save yourself the $2 charge each month by signing up for e-bill service,’’ Bell says on its website. Rogers Inc. also charges a $2 fee, but says it doesn’t retain the money it collects. ``Instead, we’ve taken steps to ensure that proceeds are directed to where they’ll do the most good: supporting youth and basic skills education through the Rogers Youth Fund,’’ the company said in a statement released in Aug. 2011 when the fee came into effect. But Cash says the ``pay-to-pay’’ fees unfairly target seniors and families already struggling to pay their bills, as well as those who do not have regular access to the Internet or don’t like paying bills online. And he says the companies reap huge savings already from customers who have voluntarily switched to online billing.

Probe planned after gas leak C ANADIAN PRESS

COLWOOD, B.C. — Emergency crews needed several hours to cap a propane leak that forced evacuations at Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt, just west of Victoria. The incident occurred Tuesday afternoon when maintenance workers discovered a leak in a 65,000-litre propane tank stored at a facility across the harbour from the busiest part of the naval base. Capt. Jenn Jackson says the tank was about half full when the

leak was found, but she couldn’t say how much propane had leaked. A one-kilometre area was cordoned off and non-essential personnel within 800 metres were evacuated. The leak was plugged by around 9 p.m. and there are no reports of any injuries. CFB Esquimalt says a full investigation will be conducted into the cause of the leak, which may have happened during a training exercise at the base’s Damage Control Training Facility.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You have a sense of what you want to accomplish. The question is whether you actually will go for it.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your creativity surges, and you feel great, no matter what you do or which direction you head in. Listen to news with a bit of cynicism. Someone easily could misrepresent what you or another person is trying to say. Worry less about what is happening. Tonight: Fun and games. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You are more anchored than you have been in a while. You’ll seek out some important answers, and you won’t be happy until you have them. Follow your instincts, and you will find yourself on the correct path. Indulge a loved one. Tonight: Head on home.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Keep conversations moving, but know that you might need to clarify facts and ask questions if you feel confused. Your instincts will tell you what direction to head in. You could be overwhelmed by everything you have to do. Tonight: Meet up with a friend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Sometimes you don’t realize how much you have to offer. In fact, you could be overwhelming to others who actually might be intimidated by you. Listen to your instincts with a financial matter. Perhaps you need to say less and see what others want to do. Tonight: Treat a friend to dinner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There could be some initial confusion in the morning, but you’ll cut through any misunderstandings right away. Later, the situation could become more complicated. Be willing to say “enough” to a family member or even to a rebellious pet. Tonight: All smiles.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Keep an eye on what is going on with a friend. Though everything could seem fine, it might not be.

excessive. Screen calls. Tonight: Listen to a favorite CD, then decide. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Build an important relationship, if you really care to do so. Tending to one’s bonds helps nurture not only the relationship itself, but both parties as well. Make a point of sharing an important secret or news with your best friend. Tonight: In the mood for a celebration? Go for it. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might be confusing to a loved one. It isn’t that you are unclear, but rather that you haven’t quite conceptualized a new perspective yet. Assure this person that you will try to explain it the best you can, but there still is no guarantee that he or she will get where you’re coming from. Tonight: Choose a stressbuster.

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have been married to my husband for only one month, and he already has had a brief fling with a woman from his office. This caught me completely off guard. I thought we were happy, and I am pretty sure my husband enjoys being married to me. He always says I am much more than he deserves. I have repeatedly asked him why he would cheat on me. He says he needs more sex with different females to be satisfied. What should I do? -- New Bride Dear New Bride: Your husband is telling you quite frankly that he needs more than one sexual partner. This means he is likely to cheat on you multiple times in the future. Unless this is your idea of a good marriage, we don’t see much hope. Get checked for sexually transmitted diseases, and then see a counselor and figure out your next move. Dear Annie: I am in my mid-20s, married with children. My mother lives with us. In fact, I’ve never lived without her, and now I want my family to have a place of our own. Having Mom here has been good because it helps cut expenses and she watches our kids. I love her so much, and she is my best friend, but I am really ready to do everything on my own. When I asked my mother about getting a separate place, it really hurt her. She cried because she wouldn’t be with her grandchildren every day. She was so upset that I gave in and said maybe we should just get a bigger house. Annie, I don’t want a bigger house. I want a small place with just my husband and children. We thought about getting a two-family home so Mom would be close by but separate. We can’t afford a brand-new house, although we are saving for one. How can I get Mom to understand? -- Lost in Mother’s Feelings Dear Lost: You don’t need Mom to understand. You are a married woman with a family. You are entitled to have a place of your own. Mom is never going to like it, but she can get used to it. And she will still see the grandchildren as often as you permit, which we suspect will be every day. And it won’t be that easy for you, either, but it’s time to cut the apron strings. Discuss this with your husband and form a united front. Then tell your mother that this is what you are going to do, you’re sorry if she’s upset, you love her and she is welcome to visit. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Trying To Avoid a Christmas Circus this Year,” whose mother has been giving unequal gifts to the grandchildren. I have six grandchildren who receive different monetary gifts, and it has nothing to do with favoritism or need. I love them all equally, and their parents are well off financially. However, three of them are appreciative and send me thank-you notes. They are three sweet boys who love to hug and visit with me when I’m at their home. The other three, however, are spoiled and wouldn’t know a thank-you note from a grocery list. They take my gifts for granted and barely say hello when I visit. I finally decided that I would give everyone presents and try to form relationships with all the grandkids, but would no longer serve as an ATM for the ungrateful, uncaring ones. As far as I’m concerned, a gift is something one chooses to give and should not be expected or judged. -- Texas Dear Texas: Although you say it is not a matter of favoritism, you have, in fact, learned to favor those children who are affectionate and grateful (which is not surprising). Young children need to be taught manners. While the parents should be doing that job, you are also in a position to be their instructor. You will be giving them lessons that will serve them well in the future. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Search crews look for traveller who vanished between B.C. and Saskatchewan C anadian Press

REVELSTOKE, B.C. — Search and rescue crews are scouring an area south of Revelstoke, B.C., for a man who was last seen almost a month ago. Thirty-nine-year-old David Klammer left his parent’s home in Saskatchewan on Oct. 8, bound for White Rock, B.C. A backpack thought to be Klammer’s was found on Oct. 26 in the brush along a logging

road south of Revelstoke. On Monday, his white, 2003 Subaru Impreza, was found parked along the same logging road. An RCMP air search earlier this week found no sign of Klammer. He’s described as 6-foot-2 tall, weighs 196 lbs, has brown hair and blue eyes. He was possibly wearing a brown leather jacket with a brown hoodie.

Police bust cross-Canada marijuana operation C anadian Press

Police in B.C. and Ontario have teamed up to bust a cross-Canada marijuana and money laundering operation. B.C.’s Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit says police arrested a 26-year-old man in Richmond and a 29-year-old man in New Westminster, while a

number of others were taken into custody in the Toronto area. Police say they’ve seized hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, more than 270 kilograms of marijuana, and property that includes eight vehicles. The two men arrested in B.C. will be sent back to Ontario to face charges.

NEWS Man dies after rock crashes into windshield C anadian Press

LAKE COWICHAN, B.C. — A 52-year-old man has died after being hit by a rock that fell off a logging truck and crashed through the windshield of a pickup truck near Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island. The RCMP say witnesses reported two logging trucks were heading east on Highway 18 Wednesday morning

when a rock fell off the first truck, bounced off the road, and smashed through the driver side windshield of the pickup. The driver of the pickup was seriously injured and taken to hospital but later died, while his female passenger wasn’t hurt. Police are trying to find the driver of the logging truck, who they say probably

didn’t know what had happened and didn’t stop. This is the second time in a month that a rock crashing through a windshield has killed a person in B.C. In early October, a 36-year-old Calgary woman died when a rock was thrown through the windshield by a transport truck on Highway 93 near Canal Flats.

FACTS You Need to Know About…

..,BC Finance Minister’s visit to the East Kootenay With

MLA,

Bill Bennett

1

Minister Mike deJong provided a sold-out crowd in Cranbrook the same facts about the challenges and choices facing BC that he provided for cabinet just a few weeks ago. Spending choices are limited by the challenge of balancing the budget. Nonetheless, BC has more choices than most Canadian provinces.

2

The future for BC is unpredictable in an uncertain global economy and things are tight. But BC is doing better than almost anywhere else on earth. Ontario predicts a $22 Billion deficit while BC is on track to balance our budget. Even Alberta will have a deficit.

3

Business employers at the luncheon appreciated the minister’s factual, no nonsense approach to the management of tax payer money. Because business, just like households, must manage in the same responsible, disciplined way.

To check availability please call 406-756-4500.

New York-born Lady Gaga donates $1M to Red Cross for Superstorm Sandy relief ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lady Gaga is donating $1 million to the Red Cross to aid those affected by Superstorm Sandy. The New York-born singer posted on her blog Wednesday that she is pledging the money on behalf of her parents and sister. She also said she â&#x20AC;&#x153;would not be the woman or artist that I am todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; if it werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for places like the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn. She writes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Superstorm Sandy made landfall more than a week ago, killing many of its more than 100 victims in New York City and New Jersey and leaving millions without power. AP Photo/Luca Bruno Lady Gaga added that New York is a place full of â&#x20AC;&#x153;relentless ambition.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In this Monday, Oct. 1, file photo, Lady Gaga arrives at the Versace atelier in Milan, Italy.

Celebrities air post-election feelings online Associated Press

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mariah Carey was so excited about President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s re-election that she released a new song in his honour. Beyonce popped up on Instagram with a rebuke for Mitt Romney, while Romney supporter Elisabeth Hasselbeck sent out a disappointed but conciliatory tweet urging a divided United States to become one. Celebrities, who voiced their opinions loudly during the election, continued to speak their minds after the ballots were counted. Cameron Diaz, promoting her film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gambitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; in London, said she was worried about the election as she fell asleep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was terrified that I was going to wake up to a total embarrassment for our country and that today would be a very different day for me,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I was so thrilled.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Romney supporters Donald Trump and Ted Nugent ranted on Twitter after the election that the country is doomed, while Spike Lee and Russell Simmons celebrated Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory and the diverse electorate behind it. NBC News anchor Brian Williams called attention to Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series of tweets Tuesday while covering election returns, saying the realestate magnate and reality-TV star had â&#x20AC;&#x153;driven well past the last exit to

Donald Trump relevance and veered into something closer to irresponsibleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; with his posts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Trump tweeted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nugent was similarly upset â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and expressive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Wednesday morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav a president to destroy America,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goodluk America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He concluded with: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I cry tears of blood for The Last Best Place & the warriors who died for this tragedy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hasselbeck shared a more measured re-

sponse, tweeting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;(Hash) momentofpeace: You cannot love the game only when your player wins. We remain to be the greatest nation and (at)BarackObama is OUR President.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mark Cuban, meanwhile, extended a virtual olive branch to Trump, writing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know it was a rough night for u,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and inviting Trump to join him in raising funds for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Spike Lee was among the most vocal Obama supporters online after the election, using his Twitter feed to blast the Republican party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Great Lesson. This Is Not Ikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s USA. Complexion Of This Great Country Has Changed-A True Melting Pot. The GOP Is Stuck In A Time Warp. YO,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the filmmaker

wrote Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;GOP WAKE UP. This Is Notâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; LEAVE TO BEAVER.FATHER KNOWS BEST OR MAYBERRY R.F.D.â&#x20AC;&#x153; THE 21st CENTURY. And Datâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Da 2nd Term Truth, Ruth. YADIG??â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Beyonce also gloated a bit, posting a photo on her blog that read, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take that Mitches.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It was accompanied by another photo of the singer wearing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Texans for Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; T-shirt. Carey released a new song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bring It On Home,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; online Wednesday to celebrate the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory. She first performed the song at an Obama fundraiser over the summer, said Carey publicist Cindi Berger. The pop star also shared her support on Twitter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congratulations to our beloved President Barack Obama, our spectacular First Lady Michelle Obama & the adorable Malia & Sasha. We love you!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Carey wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;INCREDIBLE SPEECH!!!!!! Watching in a room full of diverse people-all truly moved. Thank you America for President Obama4more yrs.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rapper Young Jeezy released an election-inspired song of his own Wednesday called â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Done It Again.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He recognized Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2008 election with a track called â&#x20AC;&#x153;My President Is Black.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Russell Simmons also acknowledged the

diversity of Obama supporters in a blog post Wednesday called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forward!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is no time for triumphalism, because we are still in an economic crisis and we still have deep social divisions that must be dealt with,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we have to absorb, as a country, as a NATION, that first and foremost, AMERICA IS CHANGING... We cannot fight demographics by ignoring women, Latinos, blacks, young people, and gays who gave their lives for our country. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The middle class and poor need support,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he continues, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and every politician who is not ready for this change should wake today and realize that minorities will wait in line into the early hours of the morning to vote them out of office. Forward, we go.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Scores of other stars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Tony Bennett, Cher, Shakira, Lady Gaga, Jessica Alba and Samuel L. Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; celebrated Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory on Twitter. Others, including filmmaker Ron Howard and actors Rob Lowe and James Van Der Beek, say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to move past the election toward mending the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To all the winners (and losers) tonight: Politicians run campaigns. Leaders strike compromises,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Van Der Beek wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time for everyone to shift gears now (hash)please.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;
