Resort Municipality Initiative

RMI funding nets Kimberley $87,876 C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

As a Resort Municipality, Kimberley is eligible to receive funding from the provincial government based on accommodation revenues. This year, Kimberley’s share of the funding is $87,876. The money must be used on projects that help support tourism infrastructure and programming in Kimberley. Last year, Kimberley put these funds toward the new putting course at the Riverside Campground. This year the funds are earmarked for improvements to the Sullivan Underground Railway and trail development for mountain biking. “Kimberley is one of the best locations in B.C. for mountain biking and the Province’s Resort Municipality Initiative has allowed us to promote and continually improve our mountain biking infrastructure,” said Steve Brine, director, Kimberley Trails Society. “Kimberley is very fortunate to have access to this program.” “Our government recognizes how important a role resort municipalities play in the economic prosperity of our province, “

Kimberley Year in Review, Part I

C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

January the year began with a man, Ronald Capilo, in court facing charges of impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death and failing to stop at the scene of an accident. The accident occurred on New Year’s Day at 5 a.m. on Mission Road. A fe-

male passenger was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. Mining exploration was buzzing in the East Kootenay at the beginning of the year as Eagle Plains Resources and other companies searched for Sed-Ex deposits similar to that of the Sullivan Mine. Kimberley firefighters attended for Enderby firefighter Daniel Bodkin, who was killed on the job on December 28, 2011. The 1200 seat Enderby arena was filled to capac-

ity, said Kimberley Fire Chief Al Collinson. Kimberley RCMP continued to report an increase in telephone scams of all sorts, playing on peoples’ emotions to get money. RCMP warn that you should never give out financial information over the phone, no matter how compelling the story. A newly formed group, the Humane Treatment of Wildlife Committee, visited Kimberley City Council, asking them to suspend their deer cull. Speaking for the

group Colleen Bailey asked for a delay while all information on managing urban deer was gathered. Council agreed to send Bailey’s information to the Operations Committee but did not suspend the ongoing cull. The Kimberley Alpine Resort reported record one-day attendance on New Year’s Eve. 3400 skiers hit the slopes on December 31.

KELOWNA, B.C. — A couple from B.C.’s Okanagan are still amazed after receiving an email message in exchange for a bottled message some 12,000 kilometres from where they tossed it in the ocean three years ago. Brian and Joan Stewart of Naramata, north of Penticton, say they had all but forgotten about the bottle they launched off the deck of

a cruise ship while passing Cape Horn during a cruise to South America in March 2010. But then a response came out of the blue, from a father and his 14-year-old daughter who last month discovered the wine bottle on a beach near Perth, Australia. Phil and Lili Hanley told them they were walking outdoors after a storm when the teen spotted the treasure

resting amongst some seaweed on the country’s west coast. The couple say the bottle must have floated eastward from Cape Horn, crossing the South Atlantic and Indian oceans, before emerging near one of Australia’s biggest cities. The Stewarts have since exchanged several emails with the Australian family, who sent them a photo of the bottle and its still dry con-

tents. “They were so excited, they couldn’t believe it,’’ Joan Stewart said. The couple had flung the bottle to sea on March 22, 2010 as a way to mark their trip. It included the date, their business card with home and email addresses, and two U.S. dollar bills for postage inside a zip-lock bag. “Who knows where this could end up?’’ Joan Stewart recalled think-

ing. Although Cape Horn is best known for its howling winds, the weather that day was calm and rainy when they dropped it into the water seven or eight decks below. “I really thought it was going to smash when it hit the water,’’ Brian Stewart said. Instead, the couple watched in fascination as the corked bottle bobbed in the waves as the ship continued on its way. Then, last month, the Stewarts received the unexpected email from the family living in the Perth-area community of San Remo. “It was just absolutely an amazing thing,’’ Joan Stewart said. “It could have landed anywhere. “It could have landed on a rocky beach, it could have landed on an abandoned beach. The cork could have popped and it could have filled with water and sank.’’ Brian Stewart said the result has made the couple feel good. “It’s just a nice, heart-warming story to find a message in a bottle,’’ he said.

Looking back; Kimberley Year in Review, Part I From Page 1 Council renewed the hotel room tax agreement for another five year period. The two percent tax is earmarked to support tourism marketing, programs and projects in Kimberley. As the deer cull continued in Kimberley, there were reports of traps being vandalized and triggered before they could capture an animal. The Humane Treatment Committee said they did not condone any type of vandalism, but understood that there were many against this method of urban deer management and felt their voices hadn’t been heard. Concern over a string of ecstasy-related deaths in British Columbia and Alberta had police on alert. The Kimberley RCMP said that there were no deaths in Kimberley, but that the drug itself was definitely present in the city. The deaths were linked to para-Met h o x y m e t h a m p h e tamine (PMMA), a substance for which drug toxicologists previously did not test. A 46-year old Cranbrook man was arrested and charged with possession and distribution of child pornography. His name was not released under orders of a publication ban. Kimberley City Council adopted a borrowing bylaw that will enable the city to borrow up to $4.25 million for the Mark Creek flume rehab project. It was hoped that federal and provincial funding would help with the project, but a 2011 referendum authorized the city to borrow the full amount. The Bootleg Sled Dog Race Committee announced that the 2012 races would be cancelled due to poor course conditions. Lack of snow and forecasted warm daytime temperatures left them with no choice, organizer Brenda Birrell said. Kimberley Summer Theatre announced that the 2012 season would be cancelled. But the KST board said they would return in 2013, after a year to reorga-

nize, plan and catch their breath.

fering opinions on the resort, 20 years was more than enough time to wait for a decision. Opposition groups, including Wildsight and the Ktunaxa Nation vowed to continue to fight against the resort. A record snowfall of 54 cm in 24 hours was recorded at the Kimberley Alpine Resort on March 22, 2012, making up for less than spectacular snow falls early in the season. Randall Hopley, accused of kidnapping three-year old Sparwood boy, Kienen Hebert, pled guilty to adduction of a person under 14 and break and enter with the intent to commit an offence in BC Supreme Court in Cranbrook. He pled not guilty to a second charge of kidnapping. Kimberley residents were warned to prepare for high water along Mark Creek given the snow and rain accumulated late in the winter.

February An avalanche in the Hellroaring area trapped a skier, but his skiing partner was able to pull him out, then walk out for help. Kimberley Search and Rescue responded to the call for help and transported both skiers out to East Kootenay Regional Hospital. Rescuers stressed that the couple did everything right and their backcountry experience helped them. That same weekend an avalanche killed one man on Meadow Mountain near Kaslo. Kimberley’s controversial deer cull ended with 99 mule deer taken out of the urban herd. Over 4,000 pounds of meat was given to area food banks. City Council said the focus would now shift to education. The Vice-Chair of the Humane Treatment Committee was given a seat on the Urban Deer Committee as a community representative. New figures released by Statistics Canada showed that Kimberley grew by 8.4 per cent since the last census. That was a faster growth than both the provincial (7 per cent) and national (5.9 per cent). Kimberley’s Josh Dueck became the first man to land a backflip in a sitski, garnering international attention, including an appearance on the Ellen Show. Dueck preformed the flip near Whistler on February 3, 2012. Invermere’s deer cull, which was to follow Kimberley’s, was put on hold when the Invermere Deer Protection Organization obtained a temporary injunction from the BC Supreme Court. The injunction was granted on the basis that the District of Invermere did not have enough public consultation on the process leading to the cull. However, later in the month a judge did not grant an extension to the injunction Teachers across the province were ordered back to work by the provincial government after

Two of the biggest stories of the year — deer management and the May flooding.

a report found it very unlikely that a mutually agreed upon contract could be negotiated between the BC Teachers Federation and the employer, BCPSEA. Locally, Craig Hillman of the Kimberley Teacher’s Association said the move was disappointing but not unexpected.

March Kimberley teachers joined fellow teacher across the province in a job action — a three day withdrawal of service, all the Labour Relations Board will allow. Kimberley parents were asked to keep their children home, though schools would be open. The Invermere deer cull proceeded, but not without incident. Con-

tractors hired to carry out the cull reported being followed, and being blocked from leaving an area. There were also reports of traps being tampered with, similar to what occurred in Kimberley. Given the delay with the injunction, Invermere officials said it was unlikely they would be able to reach the 100 deer the permit allowed. A public meeting was held to inform Kimberley citizens on the Mark Creek Flume Project. Mayor Ron McRae promised it was only the first of many public meetings that would be held as the project proceeded. If provincial and federal funding was obtained the cost to taxpayers for the project would be $1.4 million,

approximately $18 per year on an average house price of $239,563. If the City has to go it alone and fund the entire $4.25 million, the cost rises to $54 per year. An injured man survived a night alone on the Wildhorse Forest Service road after his SUV plunged down an embankment. He spent the night lying beside his vehicle with multiple serious fractures to one arm. He called for help on his cell phone and was transported out by STARS air ambulance. The BC government signed off on the master development agreement for the Jumbo Glacier Resort. Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson said that while he understood there were dif-

At the Kimberley Rotary Club 70th anniversary gala, the Club awarded former Mayor Jim Ogilvie a Paul Harris Award for his service to the community. But an additional surprise honour was given the former mayor as well. Kootenay Columbia MP David Wilks presented the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to Ogilvie. To boost the local

herd, 20 mountain caribou (17 females, three males) were taken from a healthy herd near Dease Lake, fitted with GPS radio collars then brought down to the Kootenays in specially designed animal trailers. One female caribou died on route. But a few weeks after their relocation, the caribou were spotted around Fort Steele and Mayook, and have even been sighted on Cranbrook’s spray irrigation fields. The Kimberley Arts Council/Centre 64 continued to fundraise towards its ultimate goal, a rebuild of the Centre 64 building and theatre. Much fundraising had already taken place, allowing the Arts Council to purchase the lot next door to the centre for future expansion. The lot was turned over to the City, who also own Centre 64, although the Arts Centre operates it. “We turned it over with the understanding that both lots would be for the theatre,” said Carol Fergus. “Centre 64 belongs to you and me, the people of Kimberley.” Meadowbrook residents formed an association in order to fight a proposed quarry near Cherry Creek Falls. The issue had been ongoing for quite some time and it was felt forming an association would help the cause, which was creating a park at Cherry Creek.

From Page 3 By year’s end it was clear that the only solution would be to purchase the mineral claim and the Meadowbrook Residents Association was actively fundraising to do so. The City declared a state of emergency on Tuesday, April 24, 2012 as water began to fill the Morrison Subdivision and spill down Wallinger Avenue. Water was pooling at the culvert where Kimberley and Lois creeks converge to be carried underground to Mark Creek. With the state of emergency declared, residents affected could leave voluntarily and provincial emergency services would be available. Residents were told to check in at Centennial Hall and then the province would fund their accommodations and needs for the next 72 hours. By Wednesday, an evacuation alert had been issued as waters continued to rise. The situation was tense for the next few days, but cooler weather and no precipitation over the weekend helped matters considerably. A number of homes were flooded and those people were eligible for assistance from the provincial government. The City of Kimberley still faces the issue of how to deal with flooding in the Morrison Sub and how to direct water out of it when there is a problem.

Fairmont condos burn For the Bulletin

Members of the Fairmont and Windermere Fire Departments responded to a large structure fire last Saturday morning in the Fairmont area. Approximately 10 firefighters responded to the scene. “When we arrived, we found three of the five Columbia Eagle condos completely engulfed in flames and all five are a total loss,” explains Columbia Valley Rural Fire & Res-

cue Services Chief, Jim Miller. “The condos, which were located adjacent to Highway 93/95, have been left partially constructed for several years. There were no occupants in any of the units and there were no injuries as a result of the blaze.” While the exact cause of the blaze has not been determined, the fire is being considered suspicious and fire officials are currently looking for witnesses.

Guns, guns and more guns

t’s only human nature to want to take action after such a harrowing traumatic event. To do something. Anything, to protect our kids. And make sure that Newtown never ever happens again. Here. There. Anywhere. But while the rest of the nation grieves, familiar opponents on The Gun Issue are focused more on making sure their groups’ messages don’t get trampled in the anticipated tsunami of sorrow. So they preemptively are trying to drown out each other with battalions of bellicose bullhorns, and it doesn’t matter they can’t hear each other because neither side is listening anyway. That’s the crossroads at which we find ourselves. Again. The intersection of Guns, Guns and Guns. Too many. Too few. Too big. Too small. Too scary looking. Waiting periods. Background checks. Magazine sizes. Access. Transportation. Construction. Registration. Who decides and who abides. All the old buzz phrases are dusted off. “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.” “Increased gun control means aiming better.” “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” Actually, it’s those darn bullets that puncture the skin and

bones, creating holes for the blood to leak out of way too fast. The NRA is busy pumping out press releases arguing that if the teachers had been armed, this tragedy could have been averted. Yeah, there you go. That’s what we need. MORE guns in schools. The major problem with school shootings, are schools. There’s your anRAGING MODERATE swer, boys. Want to cut down on school shootings, Will get rid of the schools. A soluDurst tion many states are busy implementing as we speak. Besides, why just arm the teachers? Aren’t we forgetting about our kids? Surely they have the right to defend themselves. The only question is where do you draw the line? Middle school? Fourth grade? Does the Second Amendment guarantee the rights of Toting Toddlers? Should kid-proof trigger guards be illegal? Maybe get Fisher Price to equip classrooms with plastic Day-Glo under-desk holsters. The left is also once again questioning whether military-type assault weapons have a place in today’s society. To which the right vehemently argues semantics. “Semi- automatic rifles aren’t assault weapons and the left obviously has no experience with guns or they wouldn’t misla-

bel them and their ignorance on the subject disqualifies them to comment or have any opinion whatsoever.” Known in gun control circles as the “neener neener” argument. An argument that totally misses the point. Doesn’t matter what you call them. Semi-automatic rifles. Military-type horizontal handheld ordnance. Futuristic flintlocks. Agitation resolvers. Magic wands. Disputatious caramelized pump-action fruit rolls. Stick a feather in their muzzle and call them macaroni if you want. The basic problem is, the only reason to own a macaroni that can fire hundreds of pieces of lead faster than the speed of sound in mere seconds is to kill PEOPLE. Yes, of course they can be used as legitimate hunting rifles. You can also use a flame thrower to light a cigarette. If you think about it, a hand grenade will signal the end of recess. Need to cut some butter, just pull out the trusty old chainsaw. Of course, be prepared for it to get a little messy around Muffin Time. And right now, we’re smack in the middle of an especially messy Muffin Time.

Natalie MacMaster

Celtic fiddle sensation returning to Cranbrook Townsman Staff

Through and through, let there be no doubt — expert Juno Award-winning fiddler Natalie MacMaster is a Cape Breton Girl, hence her new album is called precisely that — “Cape Breton Girl.” She will be on tour this spring in support of that new release and will make a stop at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on April 10, 2013. She last visited Cranbrook almost five years ago and many of the sold out audience have been asking when the talented musician and step dancer would return to the Key City. “When an artist such as Natalie is in demand all over the world and is regularly playing venues like Carnegie Hall and Massey Hall, it’s sometimes difficult to put together a tour which spans some smaller venues,” said F.J. Hurtak from the Kootenay Concert Connection. “We were fortunate enough to be able to do that this coming spring and I know there’s a lot of people excited about it, including myself. “She’s not only a world class musician, but she’s a great person to work with as well. We are looking forward to the tour.” It’s MacMaster’s dedicated work ethic that really has seen her accomplish so much: professionally, her three-decade career has watched her amass multiple gold albums, two Grammy nominations and one win, 10 East Coast Music Awards, 8 Canadian Country Music Awards, and she is also a recipient of the Order of Canada, the country’s highest civilian honor. MacMaster has made multiple appearances on the CBC, Canada A.M. and Garrrison Keilor’s A Prairie Home Companion, and warmed TV viewers with guest spots on Christmas specials such as Rita MacNeil’s Christmas, and Holiday Festival on Ice with Olympic ice skaters Jamie Sale, David Pelletier, Kurt Browning, and Jeffrey Buttle.

V Canadian juniors open strong with 9-3 win over Germany 250.426.5201

DONNA SPENCER Canadian Press

UFA, Russia—The black cape draped over the shoulders of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was a statement about the expectations on Canada’s captain at the world junior hockey championship. The Canadian coaching staff will hand out the cape after each game of the tournament to the player who distinguishes himself. A five-point game by Nugent-Hopkins in Canada’s 9-3 win over Germany on Wednesday was more than enough to make him the first recipient. “You need heroic plays in an event like this,’’ Canadian head coach Steve Spott explained to reporters following the game. “Game pucks, hard helmets they’ve all been done, but we thought the cape was something unique and embarrasses them a little when they have to come out and face you guys. “It could be a save or

a blocked shot, but I thought tonight it was fitting. He had a great game and is the leader of our club.’’ Nugent-Hopkins led Canada with a goal and four assists while showcasing his playmaking abilities, albeit against a country that had virtually no chance of beating the Canadians. The spotlight is on the Canadian team’s lone NHLer in a season where that league has locked out its players, and thus made the Edmonton Oilers forward available for the competition. “I think no matter where you go there’s going to be pressure and expectations,’’ Nugent-Hopkins said. “Being from Canada, there’s a lot of pressure and we’re going to put that pressure on ourselves too and each other.’’ Linemates Mark Scheifele scored twice, including a short-handed goal, and Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and two assists. That

trio of players likely would have played in the NHL this season if not for the lockout. “All three of those players have an NHL mindset and NHL abilities,’’ Spott said. Nugent-Hopkins has already played a season for the Oilers. Scheifele is a Winnipeg Jets prospect and Huberdeau is Florida Panthers property. Ty Rattie, Ryan Strome, Jonathan Drouin and defencemen Xavier Ouellet and Tyler Wotherspoon had the other goals for Canada. Goaltender Malcolm Subban stopped 25 shots for the win. Spott said the Belleville Bulls netminder will face Slovakia on Friday and indicated Subban will be the No. 1 goalie for the tournament. “Our plan is to run with Malcolm,’’ the coach said. Germany has six Canadian Hockey League players on its roster, including Tobias Rieder, who plays for Spott and

“I think no matter where you go, there’s going to be pressure and expectations.” Ryan Nugent-Hopkins with Canadian defenceman Ryan Murphy on the Kitchener Rangers. Rieder, Leonhard Pfoderl and Nickolas Latta scored for Germany, while Elmar Trautmann made 37 saves before 3,618 fans at the 8,250-seat Ufa Arena. Spott combined Nugent-Hopkins, Scheifele and Huberdeau for the first skate of selection camp Dec. 11, even though Scheifele is a natural centre converting to right wing for Canada. Prior to the tournament opener, their game time together was limited to one intra-squad game at selection camp in Calgary and one of two exhibition contests in Finland. Spott rested the

three for two exhibition games against university players at the selection camp. Huberdeau sat out Canada’s pre-tournament game against host Finland last week to serve the final game of a CHL suspension. “It definitely takes a couple games to get used to your linemates and get the chemistry, but I thought tonight we were working well together,’’ Nugent-Hopkins said. “It felt like we knew where each other

was out there.’’ Scheifele said the three players spoke prior to the game about living up to their billing. “Right after our stretch we all came together and we were like ‘You know this is a big game and we’ve got to show our leadership qualities. We’ve got to show we’re a line to be reckoned with,’ ‘’ he said. “I think we definitely did that and we’ve got to build that chemistry more and more.’’

Spott is banking on Scheifele settling in on the wing. A powerful top line creates chances for No. 2 centre Strome and wingers Drouin and Brett Ritchie. “The Strome line could be the subplot of this tournament,’’ Spott said. “You have to put your best checking line against (the Nugent-Hopkins line) and your top two defencemen because they’re so dynamic. It should open up ice for the players below.’”

Veterans and rookies named to NFL Pro Bowl BARRY WILNER Associated Press

Sensational comebacks have Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson headed for the Pro Bowl. Also selected Wednesday to the NFL’s all-star game was Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. Manning missed all of the 2011 season with neck and back problems that required several operations. He then signed with Denver as a free agent and has led the Broncos on a 10-game winning streak to take the AFC West.

“I know there’s great players out there in the NFL, but there’s some great players on this team this year that deserve to go,’’ said Manning, who ranks fourth in league passing, has thrown 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Four other Broncos made the AFC roster: DE Elvis Dumervil, linebacker Von Miller, CB Champ Bailey and tackle Ryan Clady. Minnesota’s Peterson tore up his left knee on Christmas Eve last year, underwent major surgery, then was back for the season opener. He’s gone from uncertain to

unstoppable, running away with the rushing title with a career-high 1,898 yards and lifting the Vikings toward an NFC wild card. “Coming into the season after going through the rehab process, I just told myself that I wanted to lead my team to a championship and make sure that I contribute and do my part,’’ Peterson said. “I’ve been doing it.’’ San Francisco had the most players selected, nine, including six from its second-ranked defence. Houston was next with eight, six on offence.

Sports

NHL lockout shines brighter light on World Juniors

T

he IIHF World Junior Championship is underway, with Canada opening its schedule with a convincing 9-3 win over the Germans in the early hours of Boxing Day morning. Hockey is back. Okay, hockey never actually left—see the Kootenay Ice and the Kimberley Dynamiters for more on that—but the NHL lockout has put an even brighter spotlight on the WJC this year.

Even though the tournament has just begun, there are already some controversies. The biggest storyline, for the Canadian squad, is dealing with the loss of Boone Jenner for a threegame suspension after he levelled Swedish defenceman Jesper Pettersson in an open-ice hit during an exhibition game last Saturday. “The video material indicated that the hit was late and delivered with no intention to play the puck and with Pettersson being in a vulnerable

position,” said the IIHF in its suspension ruling. Pettersson looped behind his own net with the puck and passed it across his defensive zone while skating up the ice. Jenner, who was in on the forecheck, cruised in from the blue line and made contact with his shoulder in an open-ice hit inside the face-off circle. However, the issue isn’t necessarily with the hit in question, it’s the timing of it. Pettersson had dished off the puck but

Trevor Crawley that didn’t seem to faze Jenner, who came in late and took him down in a spectacular collision that ended up breaking the Swedish defenceman’s wrist and dislocating his shoulder. One can argue that the hit was dirty, but I don’t think it necessarily

was. It was definitely late; you can tell Jenner lined Pettersson up as soon as he swung around from behind the net, but I doubt it was malicious with intent to injure. You have to remember that these guys are wearing the maple leaf on their jerseys and are representing their country in a tournament that is the pinnacle of junior hockey. They’re all jacked up on adrenaline and I believe Jenner just wanted to be physical and make a physical play, but in this case, it was just a poor decision. The hit, taken in context with the other exhibition games, has illuminated another interesting factor for the Canadian team: the officiating. The Canadian squad amassed 20 minutes in penalties during it’s exhibition loss to Finland, but has done a better job of staying out of the sin bin since then. “I think the challenge for us obviously is coming together as a team,” Canadian coach Steve Spott told the Canadian Press after the game last Thursday. “It’s our first

game. But ultimately I think discipline is the subplot here tonight, where we have to get used to the standard of officiating and deal with our discipline a lot smarter than we did tonight.” European hockey is different from the game in North America—it’s plainly evident all the way up to the professional level. There is much more emphasis on speed and skill than there is on bruising physical play— differences of which Spott is already aware of. “We know the standards are different over here,” Spott told TSN after the exhibition game against Sweden. “Our players are prepared, but ultimately, in the first two games, I think, as a hockey person, not as Team Canada’s head coach, as a hockey person, I don’t think anyone can argue that the level of officiating in the first two games for all the teams has not been at the level that we’re probably used to and should expect.” Everyone’s a critic and everyone likes to ride the referees, but

scapegoating the officials is just bad form. The way the game flows is different over in Europe. When I watch a WHL or NHL game, I expect to see physical bodychecking because that’s the way hockey is played this side of the Atlantic. However, you can see in international tournaments like the WJC or the Olympics, that the physicality of the game seems to give way to speed and skill. The challenge then, becomes finding out what Team Canada can get away with while playing a physical game, in terms of what the officials will and won’t whistle down. So far, it seems as though the team is doing a good job of figuring that out, as they only tallied four minor penalties in their opening round-robin game against the Germans on Wednesday. The ability to adapt— not necessarily change— their game is what will hopefully put them back on the gold medal podium this year, after three years of coming up short.

Canada opens Spengler Cup with 2-1 loss to Adler Mannheim Mitch Goldenberg Canadian Press

35-1500 Cranbrook St N in the Tamarack Shopping Centre

DAVOS, Switzerland —An opening game loss at the Spengler Cup hasn’t shaken the confidence of Team Canada. Jason Pominville scored on a breakaway three minutes into overtime Wednesday as Adler Mannheim shocked Canada with a 2-1 victory. Tyler Seguin scored the lone goal for Canada in the third period as the roster loaded with NHL talent had trouble finding its scoring touch, despite generating plenty of chances. “There’s no panic in us right now,’’ said Ca-

nadian forward Matt Duchene. “We all think we played a pretty good game, there were lots of bounces and opportunities that we just weren’t able to put in.’’ Pominville, a locked out member of the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres, ripped a low shot past Canadian goalie Jonathan Bernier to give the top team in the German league a surprising victory. “I know Bernier a little bit, so there was a lot of mind playing going on in the moment,’’ said Pominville after the game. “I’m just glad it went in to get the big victory for our team.’’

First played in 1923, the Spengler Cup annually pits Davos and Canada against four European club teams in a six-day tournament in Switzerland. Dennis Endras made 34 saves for Mannheim, including a breakaway stop on Patrice Bergeron moments before Pominville’s winner. ``You can’t expect to win against Team Canada in the Spengler Cup,’’ said Endras. ``All of us battled hard for 60 minutes, we blocked a lot of shots to prevent their chances and it’s just awesome to get the points.’’

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Taking a hard look at recent expenditures might be more necessary than you think. Do not let someone’s opinion trigger an argument -- just let it go. You know what you want.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You are full of energy and could be difficult to find, according to more than a few people.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Use the morning to the max when dealing with others. People will tend to be more responsive then. You actually might decide to keep to yourself in the afternoon.

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: My friend “Rachel” is very dear to me. We’ve been best friends since the 11th grade. Now that we’ve entered the adult world, however, she’s encountered some difficult situations. She had a drug problem, has always had family problems, lost her license, owes back taxes and has been unemployed for a year. Rachel has two male roommates who I’m pretty sure were recently homeless. She feeds them and cleans up after them. She has always had an extraordinarily generous heart, and while I admire this, I can’t help feeling a little concerned. Not only are these men taking advantage of Rachel, but they aren’t very clean, and they cough all over everything. They have a dog who hasn’t been bathed in some time, but is eager to give kisses. Rachel allows this dog to lick up leftovers from dinner, and the plates are left in the sink for days before she washes them. Am I simply being too judgmental about her living situation, or am I right to worry about her health? Another friend mentioned that she confronted Rachel about her two roommates, and Rachel became defensive and angry. How can I approach her about this? I find myself not wanting to step foot in her house again. -- Worried and Confused in California Dear Worried: As long as the dishes are eventually washed with soap and water, it doesn’t matter that the dog licked them and they are piled in the sink. And if Rachel likes to feed and clean up after her roommates, that is her choice. The coughing is an issue only if it is causing Rachel to become ill. (And if there is a possibility of pneumonia or TB, we hope the roommates have been checked.) But it seems to us that Rachel is at loose ends and is possibly using her caregiving skills as a means to avoid finding a job. You can express your concern and suggest she talk to a professional, but beyond that, she has to steer her own course. Dear Annie: We are very private people and do not have, nor do we want, a Facebook account. Our friend knows this, but when we sent her a picture of our newest grandchild via e-mail, she posted this picture with full details on her Facebook page without our permission. We didn’t say anything to her, but of course, we no longer send her any photographs. Please tell your readers that posting such things without permission is a violation of someone’s trust in you. Do you agree? -Not a Facebook Fan Dear Not: Yes -- and no. Many people don’t mind and don’t care. The fact that your friend knows you don’t have a Facebook account doesn’t mean she has any idea that you object to her posting your grandchild’s photograph. She may have thought she was doing you a favor. Please don’t be silent. Tell her you would appreciate it if she would remove the photo immediately and not post any others without permission. Dear Annie: “Disappointed in Ohio” complained that the husband of one of her friends kept attending their regular all-girl get-togethers. You printed a response from “Omaha,” who said that she and her friends have been having lunch for several years. Since one of their friends has Alzheimer’s, her husband brings her to the luncheon and stays to enjoy lunch with the ladies. “Omaha” said they enjoy his company, and when his wife can no longer attend, they will still invite him. I want to say hats off to those ladies for including their friend, despite the fact that she has Alzheimer’s, and for their willingness to include her husband. This speaks volumes for the kind of friends they are. And hats off to the husband for going the extra mile to make sure his wife doesn’t miss out on social gatherings. “Omaha” really touched my heart. -- Minot, N.D.

Obituaries

Mom was born in  New Westminster on April 17, 1933 and worked as a telephone operator after graduating from high school. She later went on to work as a book binder. Mom loved to go camping; she was the one who taught us how to fish. She also loved crochet and many kitchens boast of her colourful dish cloths. Although our brother Jim predeceased her by 31 years, Momâ&#x20AC;ŚGrammaâ&#x20AC;ŚGGâ&#x20AC;Ś always put the sunshine in the lives of her children, Aileen Boyd (Duff), John Campbell, grandchildren, Tara Hill (Mike), Cheryl Hill, Taryn Boyd, Kathryn Boyd and great grandchildren, Natalia and Merrick. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the SPCA as Mom always loved the visits to Garden View. Cranbrook branch of the SPCA, 3339 Highways 3 & 95 Cranbrook, BC V1C 4H6, (250) 426-6751. Thank you to the amazing staff of Garden View, Mom loved living there and it was because of you.

Fiddle sensation returning to Cranbrook Continued from page 7 MacMaster’s talents have also been in demand by her peers, contributing to albums by Yo Yo Mah, The Chieftans, Alison Krauss, former Doobie Brother Michael McDonald and most recently, Thomas Dolby’s new album “Map of the Floating City.” MacMaster is now an author as well, co-writing, and publishing the picturesque 161 page coffee table book, Cape Breton Aire with Pulitzer Prize-winning wordsmith Eileen McNamara, and Eric Roth’s breathtaking photography. Family has reinvigorated Natlie MacMaster’s commitment to the stage and her audience. “I like being on stage even more” said the mother of four and wife of fiddle phenom, Donnell Leahy. “When I appear onstage, that’s my departure from Momhood — and I transform into Natalie MacMaster: the entertainer, the fiddler, the performer. I relish that now more than ever.” As do her audiences, who are left clapping, hollering, and screaming for more as MacMaster and her band wow them with stylistic diversity each and every performance.
