Platzl fire

Cause of fire still under investigation Fire could have been much worse, Asst. Chief says

C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

When the City of Kimberley purchased the ladder truck for the Fire Department a couple of years ago, it was argued that one day it might prove very valuable on a major fire. That

day came last Friday, December 28, 2012, as the Kootenay Cycle Works building in the Platzl went up in flames. With the ability to get at the fire and spray water from above, firefighters were able to save the building immediately adjacent — the Gilded Goat — and prevent the fire from spreading through the entire block. The buildings in the Platzl are older and very

close together. Had the fire taken off, it could have been catastrophic, says Kimberley Assistant Fire Chief Rick Prasad. “We’d still be fighting it,” Prasad said Monday morning. “The ladder truck was extremely useful in protecting the remaining structures. We were able to get water on the nearby buildings and prevent the fire from spreading.” See FIRE, page 3

Chamber to elect new board of directors Chamber AGM Tuesday, January 29, 2013 C AROLYN GR ANT editor@dailybulletin.ca

The Kimberley Chamber of Commerce has words to live by in 2013 — “Focused on business”. The Chamber will be passing on duties at the Info Centre to Tourism Kimberley early in the new year and seeking a new office space. Chamber President Darren Close said in December that aiding Kimberley businesses will be the main focus for the Chamber going forward. The first order of business in the new year is the Chamber’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at the Conference Centre. A new board of directors will be elected, and a brief business meeting will take

place as well. But in keeping with the new business-focused theme, the evening is all about Kimberley businesses. Bring your business cards and network in an informal setting. You also might want to feature your business and what it’s about by taking a table at the Mini Trade Show. There are a limited number of tables available ($20 for members, $30 for non-members) and a 10 per cent discount available if you book by January 8, 2013. The AGM starts at 6:30 p.m. and non-members, prospective members or any interested parties are invited to attend. Appetizers will be provided and there will be a cash bar. Call Bev Campbell at 778-481-4883 or 250-4273666 for more information on the Trade Show or the AGM.

Power Up 2012 a great success For the Bulletin

Over fifty skaters took part in the Power Up camp held Dec 27 and 26 at the Civic Arena in Kimberley. The camp, hosted by the Northstar Figure Skating Club, catered to both figure skaters and hockey players. Three groups of figure skaters and hockey players by age moved through the two-day program, which included both on and off ice training. Thirty-nine hockey players and fourteen figure skaters from Kimberley, Cranbrook, Fernie and Invermere attended the two-day camp. The line up of instructors included; Danielle Fujita-Elford, from Invermere, who has 22 years of professional coaching experience. She covered blade awareness, edge development, forward and backward stride technique, quick feet and

At the peak of the effort, 24 firefighters were on the scene. Fire crews remained on scene through the night. As for when the rubble from the fire might be removed from the Platzl, Prasad says that matter is currently in the hands of insurance agents. Kootenay Cycle Works has announced on the Facebook page that they are currently seeking a new location, and over 100 people have left messages of support. The business has posted a picture of a phoenix rising from the ashes on their page.

Canfor confirms $40 million investment in Elko mill BARRY COULTER Townsman Editor

Earlier in December, Canfor Corporation announced it was going ahead with a $40 million investment in its Elko sawmill. The company, which earlier this year acquired the assets formerly owned by Tembec, said the investment is part of a multi-year capital investment program aimed at enhancing productivity and cost performance across the company. The Elko sawmill is located 65 kilometres east of Cranbrook. Canfor said the Elko investment will include upgrades to the sawmill, increased kiln drying capacity and construction of a greenfield plan-

er mill complex. The capital project will commence in the first quarter of 2013. Completion is anticipated in the third quarter. “These investments are aligned with our strategic investments in our Kootenay assets, and are necessary to ensure our Elko facility can operate competitively in all market conditions,” said Don Kayne, President and CEO of Canfor Corporation. Canfor is the largest forest company in British Columbia, directly employing more than 3,500 people in B.C. Over the last three years, the company has invested $372 million in its B.C. facilities including the restart of the Radium and Vavenby mills.

RDEK urges patience at busy transfer stations Annalee Gr ant Townsman staff

Santa has come and gone, and the East Kootenay is cleaning up after family get togethers, opening presents and all the Christmas and New Year’s cheer. The Regional District of East Kootenay, which

operates area landfills, is asking residents to be courteous and thoughtful this season when they take trips to the transfer stations to drop off their Christmas garbage. For staff at the RDEK’s transfer station, the weeks after Christmas are the busiest of the year. “The days between Christmas and New Years are extremely busy,” said Loree

Duczek, the RDEK’s communications Manage. “Unfortunately, much of the waste we receive during this time is made up of cardboard and recyclable packaging and wrapping paper.” All of those items can be recycled, and the RDEK is asking residents to sort their garbage before committing it to the landfill. Cardboard, paper-based wrapping paper, enve-

lopes and cards are all recyclable materials, while foil wrapping paper, tin pie plates, styrofoam and dirty/unwashed or unnumbered plastics cannot be recycled. those items should go in the garbage if you can’t find another use for them. As the RDEK works to keep the transfer stations clear, they are asking that residents remember to flatten all recyclables to save space.

“Boxes take up a tremendous amount of room in the yellow recycling bins and throwing them in without flattening them down not only fills up the bins faster, but often means that other people aren’t able to use the bins because they’re too full,” Duczek said. Boxes, milk jugs, and other bulky recyclables can all be squashed down to make room. See page 5

School District won’t appeal BARRY COULTER Townsman Editor

School District 5 has decided not to appeal a recent Supreme Court decision granting a group of Cranbrook teachers a new compensation board hearing. The School District announced its decision Thursday in a press release, following a special meeting of the Board on Friday, Dec. 21. Six Cranbrook teachers who claim they were poi-

soned by mercury during their time at Mount Baker Secondary School were granted a new court-ordered compensation board hearing by Supreme Court Justice A. Saunders on Tuesday, Dec. 4. On Dec. 4, Saunders said the decision handed down by the Worker’s Compensation Appeal Tribunal in September, 2010 was unfair. “It was manifestly unfair to the petitioners,” Saunders wrote in his ruling. “The

panel’s conclusion was patently unreasonable in failing to weigh all of the relevant evidence and in imposing a requirement that mercury poisoning be proven, as that diagnosis would be made by physicians.” Frank Lento, chair of the Board of Trustees, indicated that the ruling itself does not involve the school district. “Strictly speaking the judge was dealing with the WCAT decision and how it was made,” Lento said. “The

district’s responsibility in this matter was to determine if there was a safety concern and if so to properly address it. The board of the day did exactly that.” Following the initial BCTF claim in 2006, SD5 undertook a $200,000 investigation into mercury at Mount Baker and completed the necessary upgrades to ensure the building’s continued safety. No concerns regarding mercury have since been reported.

New Year’s resolution?

Make a resolution to quit with B.C.’s Smoking Cessation Program

VICTORIA - Smokers who want to make a New Year’s resolution to quit are reminded that help is available from B.C.’s Smoking Cessation Program. “Quitting smoking can be the best thing you can do for your health as it will reduce health risks like cancer, heart disease and asthma,” said Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid. “There are a range of supports in place through our Smoking Cessation Program, and accessing them can be as simple as calling 8-1-1.” Since the Smoking Cessation Program was launched on Sept. 30, 2011, 161,453 orders for nicotine replacement therapies have been placed through HealthLink BC. As well, over 45,000 people have obtained a prescription for a smoking cessation drug while visiting their physician for another reason. The program aims to help British Columbians stop smoking by assisting with the cost of smoking cessation aids. Once in each calendar year, B.C. residents enrolled with the Medical Services Plan can re-

ceive coverage for a single continuous course, lasting up to 12 weeks, of either a prescribed smoking cessation drug through the PharmaCare program or a free supply of nicotine replacement gum or patches. While a prescription for a smoking cessation drug can be obtained simply by visiting a physician for another

reason, the nicotine replacement therapies can be easily accessed by calling HealthLink BC at 8-1-1, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Smoking increases many health risks, including lung cancer, throat and oral cancer, heart disease, stroke and emphysema. For longterm smokers, it’s never a bad time to quit. By quitting smoking, British Columbians are taking active steps towards making the healthy choice, the easy choice for themselves and their families. Quitting smoking and reducing exposure to second-hand smoke greatly improves

both quality of life and lifespan. “There has never been a better time to quit smoking, with QuitNow offering a variety of tools that greatly complement the Smoking Cessation Program and help British Columbians to quit,” said BC Lung Association CEO Scott M c - Donald.

“Choose to make a positive impact on your health this holiday season. Cancer prevention depends on healthy living and healthy public policies,” said Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon, CEO Barbara Kaminsky. “I applaud British Columbians who have taken the important next step and chosen the Smoking Cessation Program.” British Columbians who register with the Smoking Cessation Program are able to receive further web, text and telephone support from QuitNow Services (‘QuitNow’), which is operated by the BC Lung Association. HealthLink BC staff can also transfer callers directly to QuitNow. While B.C. has the lowest smoking rate in Canada at 14.3 per cent, there are still approxi-

mately 550,000 British Columbians who smoke. An estimated 70 per cent of smokers in B.C. want to quit. Learn More: Looking for more information on quitting smoking?

Recycling etiquette From Page 4 In the meantime, the RDEK is clearing the transfer stations more often in the busy season. If you happen across a full trash bin, Duczek said the best thing to do is find another or wait until it’s clear. “Our contractors are busy servicing the recycling bins as quickly as they can; however, if people do come across full or overflowing recy-

cling bins, we are asking them to go to a nearby bin or come back. Never leave recyclables on or around bins,” she said. Leaving your recyclables or garbage in front of a bin encourages others to do the same, which makes a mess and takes longer for RDEK staff to clear the bins. “Many of our bins are located on private property and we need

to make sure we keep these areas clean or we risk having to remove bins,” Duczek said. For all other items, there are provincial programs in place for electronics, appliances, batteries and chemicals. For more information on where to recycle other items, contact the RDEK at (250) 4892791.

Fees rising across Canada Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

Prepare to open your wallets a little wider in 2013. B.C.’s Medical Services Premiums are jumping again for the third year in a row. The provincial government is introducing a four per cent hike in premiums once the clock ticks to January 1, 2013. Individuals will now pay $66, up from $64. A family of two currently pays $116 and in 2013

that will jump to $120.50. Families of three or more will now pay $133 up from $128. Federally, several fees will be rising for residents in 2013 as well. Taxes for both Employment Insurance and the Canada Pension Plan will go up. Employees will see $891.21 taken off their cheques next year if they make $47,400 or more. That’s up $51.50. Employers will start paying $1,247.57 per employee, which is up $71.61. Canada Pension Plan contributions are

going up as well. For those making $51,100 or more, contributions will go up $49.50 for a total of $2,356.20. Employers will also see an increase. BC Hydro rates will go up 3.91 per cent in April and most cities in the province will see their property taxes rise by two to three per cent. Here in Cranbrook, water utilities are going up by $1 and will be $55.50 this year. for homeowners looking to save on utilities, paying up all your fees by February 28 will give you a five per cent discount.

Nigeria heading towards disaster

It

is not known if the word “dysfunctional” was invented specifically to describe the Nigerian state — several other candidates also come to mind — but the word certainly fills the bill. The political institutions of Africa’s biggest country are incapable of dealing with even the smallest challenge. Indeed, they often make matters worse. Consider, for example, the way that the Nigerian government has dealt with the Islamist terrorists of Boko Haram. Or rather, how it has failed to deal with them. Boko Haram (the phrase means “Western education is sinful”) began as a loony but not very dangerous group in the northern state of Bornu who rejected everything that they perceived as “Western” science. In a BBC interview in 2009 its founder, Mohammed Yusuf, claimed that the concept of a spherical Earth is against Islamic teaching. He also denied that rain came from water evaporated by the sun. Bornu is a very poor state, however, and his preaching gave him enough of a following among the poor and ignorant to make him a political threat to the established order. So hundreds of his followers were killed in a massive military and police attack on the movement in 2009, and Mohammed Yusuf himself was murdered while in police custody. That was what triggered Boko Haram’s terrorist campaign. Its attacks grew rapidly: by early 2012 Boko Haram had killed 700 people in dozens of attacks against military, police, government and media organisations and against the Christian minorities living in northern Nigeria. So last March Nigeria’s president, Goodluck Jonathan, promised that the security forces would end the insurgency by June. But the death toll just kept climbing. In September, a senior official told The

Guardian newspaper that “There is no sense that the government has a real grip. The situation is not remotely under control.” Last week alone saw six people dead in an attack on a church on Christmas Day, seven killed in Maiduguri, the capital of Bornu state, on 27 December, and the abduction and murder of 15 Christians, mostly by slitting their throats, in a town near Maiduguri on the 28th. President Jonathan’s reGwynne sponse was to visit a Christian church on Sunday and Dyer congratulate the security forces on preventing many more attacks during Christmas week: “Although we still recorded some incidents, the extent of attacks which (Boko Haram) planned was not allowed to be executed.” If this is what success looks like, Nigeria is in very deep trouble. Part of the reason is the “security forces”, which are corrupt, incompetent, and brutal. In the murderous rampages that are their common response to Boko Haram’s attacks, they have probably killed more innocent people than the terrorists themselves, and have certainly stolen more property. Right across the country’s mainly Muslim north, they are Boko Haram’s best recruiting sergeants. But it is the government that raises, trains and pays these security forces, and even in a continent where many countries have problems with the professionalism of the army and police, Nigeria’s are in a class by themselves. That is ultimately because its politicians are also in a class by themselves. There are some honest and serious men and women among them, but as a group they are spectacularly cynical and self-serving. One reason is Nigeria’s oil: 100 million Nigerians, two-thirds of the population, live on less than a dollar a day, but there is a lot of oil money around to steal, and politics is the best way to steal it. Another is

the country’s tribal, regional and religious divisions, which are extreme even by African standards. In the mainly Muslim north, 70 per cent of the population lives below the poverty line; in the mostly Christian south, only half do. Now add a ruthless Islamist terrorist group to the mix, and stir. Boko Haram’s support does not just come from a tiny minority of religious fanatics and from grieving and angry people turned against the government by the brutality of the security forces. It also comes from a huge pool of unemployed and demoralised young men who have no hope of ever doing anything meaningful with their lives. Democracy has not transformed politics dramatically for the better anywhere in Nigeria, but the deficit is worst in the north, where the traditional rulers protected their power by making alliances with politicians who appealed to the population’s Islamic sentiments. That’s why all the northern states introduced sharia law around the turn of the century: to stave off popular demands for more far-reaching reforms. But that solution is now failing, for the cynical politicians who became Islamist merely for tactical reasons are being outflanked by genuine fanatics who reject not only science and religious freedom but democracy itself. Nigeria only has an Islamist terrorist problem at the moment, mostly centred in the north and with sporadic attacks in the Christian-majority parts of the country. But it may be heading down the road recently taken by Mali, in which Islamist extremists actually seize control of the north of the country and divide it in two. And frankly, lots of people in the south wouldn’t mind a bit: just seal the new border, and forget about the north.

Canada wins Spengler Cup MITCH GOLDENBERG Canadian Press

DAVOS, Switzerland —Canada’s Patrice Bergeron silenced the raucous crowd at the Vaillant Arena in the opening minute of the Spengler Cup final. He then made sure that host HC Davos never recovered. Bergeron sparked an early rally with his goal in the opening minute and Canada was never threatened in a comfortable 7-2 victory. Bergeron added three assists to help Canada win its first Spengler Cup title since 2007. John Tavares and team captain Ryan Smyth scored two goals apiece while netminder Devan Dubnyk made 28 saves for the victory. “We were relentless,’’ said Smyth. “It’s an honour to put the flag in front of us, I just want to relish it. What a great feeling to be successful for my country again.’’ In a star-powered finale featuring Joe Thornton, Patrick Kane and Loui Eriksson playing for the home side, Canada’s depth proved to be too much for the defending champions. After a 2-1 overtime loss to German club Adler Mannheim to

open the tournament, it was unclear whether the newly assembled team could overcome the lack of familiarity they faced at the start. Canada found its rhythm after the defeat and went on to outscore its opponents 17-3 over the final three games.

“We played better each and every game and today was our best one. It was nice to see it come together, its something I’ll remember forever.” John Tavares “It’s great to be rewarded after the adversity,’’ said Tavares. ``We scored early and put the pressure on our opponents in each of our last few games.’’ The Canadian roster also included lockedout NHL stars like Jason Spezza, Tyler Seguin and Matt Duchene. “We played better each and every game and today was our best one,’’ said Tavares. “It was nice to see it come together, its something I’ll remember forever.’’

Canadians beat Russia 4-1, earn bye into semifinals DONNA SPENCER Canadian Press

UFA, Russia—Ryan Nugent-Hopkins assisted on three Canadian goals in a 4-1 win over Russia at the world junior hockey championship Monday. Canada finished the preliminary round 4-0 to sew up first place in Pool B. The Canadians earn a bye to Thursday’s semifinal when they’ll play the winner of the quarter-final between the United States and Czech Republic. Defending champion Sweden finished first in Pool A and awaits the winner of the quarter-final between Russia and Switzerland. The extra day of rest is welcome for a Cana-

dian team that has been far from home since Dec. 15, when they flew out of Calgary to pre-competition camp in Finland. “It’s been a long haul to this point,’’ Canadian head coach Steve Spott said. “We haven’t had a day off, so with a lot of travel and a lot of time zones, we’ll enjoy tomorrow as a team and then we’ll move forward from there.’’ Nugent-Hopkins assisted on goals by Dougie Hamilton, Mark Scheifele and Jonathan Drouin. Jonathan Huberdeau added an empty-net goal. Malcolm Subban picked up his fourth win of the tournament in Canada’s net with 21 saves.

KOOTENAY ICE

Ice beat Hitmen for second straight win TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The cable guy came through for the second time in as many games for the Kootenay Ice on New Years Eve in a tense 3-2 victory over the Calgary Hitmen. Levi Cable broke a 2-2 tie in the third period and Kootenay held on for the win, notching their second consecutive victory following a 7-3 thrashing of the Spokane Chiefs last Saturday. Brock Montgomery supplied the other offence for the Ice with a pair of goals, while Zane Jones and Cody Sylvester scored for the Hitmen. Mackenzie Skapski had a 30-save performance, while Mack Shields stood in net for the Hitmen and turned away 34 shots. Cable was quick to spread around credit for his game winner, along with the one he notched against the Chiefs in Washington state. “This goal was a lot better than the one in Spokane,” he said, of his game winner against the Hitmen. “That one we got lucky, but it was just hard work by my linemates that caused both of those goals.” It was the third game for Montgomery since returning from an upper body injury after getting a little time to recover over the Christmas break. It didn’t take to long for him to return to form, as he added an assist to Cable’s game-winner in Spokane, before finding the back of the net twice against the Hitmen. “My first couple

Kootenay Ice forward Levi Cable brings the puck up the ice during a game against the Calgary Hitmen on Monday night at Western Financial Place. games back, I was just getting a feel for it. I had a lot of opportunities but I couldn’t put the puck in the back of the net,” said Montgomery. “…I got my hands back a little bit and it’s really nice to get that. Anytime you can help the team get a win like that, it’s always a positive thing.” The Ice took the lead in the opening period off an odd man rush, when Montgomery sniped the corner above Shields’ glove after using the pass option to teammate Luke Philp as a decoy. Calgary tied up the game early in the middle frame when Sylvester took advantage of an

Ice turnover and fed Jones, who buried the puck into the net from the slot. The two teams entered into the final period tied up at 1-1, however, that didn’t last long as Montgomery struck again while camped out in front of Shields. Less than a minute later, the Hitmen pulled even again when the Sylvester found the puck on his stick after it bounced between a few players in the Ice’s zone, and he made good on his shot. But Cable scored his game-winner unassisted two minutes afterwards to give his team the edge with 10 min-

utes to go, after working away outside the crease. Joey Leach had a scare after he got run hard into the boards by Chase Clayton, but the 20-year-old veteran was able to get up with the help of trainer Cory Cameron and made it back to the bench without taking a trip to the dressing room. While beating a top ranked team like the Hitmen is impressive in itself, holding and protecting a one-goal lead for the last 10 minutes of the game is just as impressive as the team rallied around Skapski and kept Calgary at bay. “It’s huge because Calgary is a top-seeded

team and we came off a big win down in Spokane and I wasn’t 100 per cent sure of how the team would respond, being that we’re such a young club, but we showed a lot of character with the work ethic that the guys put forward tonight,” said Montgomery. “We had 37 shots and that speaks volumes for this younger group that we have here and I couldn’t be prouder of every guy in that room tonight.” The Ice had Tuesday off, but they’ll host the high-flying Red Deer Rebels on Wednesday night at Western Financial Place.

NFL coaches, GMs get sacked on Black Monday C ANADIAN PRESS

Quite a day for NFL sacks. Seven coaches and five general managers were fired Monday in a flurry of pink slips that were delivered the day after the regular-season ended. There could be more, but so far the sent-packing scorecard looks like this: Andy Reid in Philadelphia, Lovie Smith in Chicago, and Ken

Whisenhunt in Arizona, all coaches who took teams to the Super Bowl, Norv Turner in San Diego, Pat Shurmur in Cleveland, Romeo Crennel in Kansas City and Chan Gailey in Buffalo. Three teams made it a clean sweep, saying goodbye to the GM along with the coach— San Diego, Cleveland, Arizona. General managers also were fired in Jacksonville and in New

York, where Rex Ryan held onto his coaching job with the Jets despite a losing record. Reid was the longest tenured of the coaches, removed after 14 seasons and a Super Bowl appearance in 2005—a loss to New England. Smith spent nine seasons with the Bears, leading them to the 2007 Super Bowl—a loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Turner has now been

fired as head coach by three teams. San Diego won the AFC West from 2006-09, but didn’t make the post-season the last three years. “Both Norv and A.J. are consummate NFL professionals, and they understand that in this league, the bottom-line is winning,’’ Chargers President Dean Spanos said in a statement. The fired GMs included Mike Tannenbaum of the Jets; Gene

Smith of the Jaguars; A.J. Smith of the Chargers and Tom Heckert of the Browns and Graves of Arizona. “You hope that those guys that obviously were victims of black Monday land on their feet,’’ Rams coach Jeff Fisher said. “You’ve got guys that have been to Super Bowls and won championship games and all of a sudden they’ve forgot how to coach, I guess.’’

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You finally are able to recuperate. You might be anxious to get into a project, yet you enjoy the return to a normal pace. Don’t forget to touch base with an important person with whom you have not been able to spend time this past holiday season. Tonight: Nice and easy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You go with the flow, and your good intentions come through. Don’t indulge in an overserious conversation, especially if you are working through some issues. Sometimes people talk too much about a situation and ruin the naturalness of a bond. Tonight: Add some spice. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You’ll enjoy relaxing right now, but you also might experience an uneasiness, as boredom could appear on the horizon. You are not a sign that can stay in the same place mentally for any length of time. Toss plans in the air and regroup. Tonight: Get enough sleep.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Return calls, and finalize details involving the end of the holidays. Once you clear up all of the issues at hand, you finally will be able to relax. A serious conversation with a child might be rather uncomfortable, but it is necessary. Tonight: Visit with a friend. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Be sure to take stock of your financial standing in order to assess what you have to offer. Rethink how you handle your budget in the near future. Be direct when dealing with an associate or partner. Your serious mood emerges, to others’ dismay! Tonight: Stay within your budget. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You have a few remaining calls and thank-you notes to complete. Your feelings toward a neighbor or sibling emerge. Could it be this person’s energy that evokes a reaction? Only you can decide. Make sure you leave a lot of time for a child or loved one. Tonight: Make it easy. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For Better or Worse

Your pace is about to radically change. You might want to take advantage of the slow period right now. A depression or a sense of being off can be combated by getting some exercise. Consider yourself in transition. A family member needs to talk. Tonight: Postpone a decision. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Try to relax with friends. Remember, it is not often that you have so many people around you. Fatigue could play into this situation. Schedule a few extra days off, if possible. Your communication style is concise when dealing with others. Tonight: Only where the fun is. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Others demand and expect a lot from you. Can you meet their expectations? You know what you will not do, but on the other hand, you might not want the alternative either. Use care when committing any funds at present. Tonight: A force to be dealt with. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Reach out to someone knowledgeable for an opinion. You

could be investing too much in a situation that involves a friend. Try assuming a more laidback position. You might need some distance from the here-andnow. Tonight: Put on a favorite piece of music. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Don’t keep switching from one subject to another. Focus on one person and one topic at a time, even if your mind seems to be running away from you. An older friend or associate demands more of your time. Follow your instincts. Tonight: Talk and dinner. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Defer to a partner, family member or dear friend. You have been very active, and now you need some time just for you. Say no to an invitation, unless you really want to be there. Honor your desires, and let someone else carry the responsibility. Tonight: You know what you want. BORN TODAY Actress Kate Bosworth (1983), singer/songwriter Roger Miller (1936), author Isaac Asimov (1920 ***

Rhymes with Orange

By Hillary B. Price

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I was diagnosed with depression more than 20 years ago. When I was in high school, I was hospitalized for close to a year. Because money and insurance have been sporadic, I have been on and off of medication. Plus, once I get on a good medication, I start feeling that I don’t need it anymore. Last year, my husband lost his job, so I have no insurance and have been off of medication since. Annie, my depression feels like it is crushing me. I am tired all the time and not interested in doing anything. I interpret everything my husband says as insulting or angry, although I know it isn’t. Part of the problem is, we haven’t had sex in three years. He says he just doesn’t want to. So I feel pretty worthless. I fantasize about dying. I feel this dark cloud hanging over me. I try to put on a happy face, but it doesn’t help much. My husband knows about my depression, but there isn’t much we can do without money. Please help me. -- Tired of It Dear Tired: There are resources for you. First contact the National Alliance on Mental Illness (nami.org) at 1-800-950-NAMI. You also can find a listing of free or low-cost health centers in your area through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (hhs.gov) and the Partnership for Prescription Assistance (pparx.org), which also can help with medication. And don’t overlook your local community centers and nearby medical schools for low-cost counseling services. Just writing us shows your commitment to getting well. Hang in there. Dear Annie: My husband and I have a friend who was given an award a few years ago. Many of us attended the event, and friends from afar sent congratulations and accolades. Since then, however, “Ralph” brings up the award at every occasion, showering everyone with photos and bragging to the skies. This is getting rather tiring to the rest of us. Some people have made a few comments to him, saying it’s time to “let it go,” but it doesn’t help. Ralph thinks he’s truly hot stuff now, and it’s become unbearable to be around him. We all enjoy the company of his wife, who unfortunately doesn’t try to curtail his boasting, but we certainly don’t wish to be around Ralph anymore. Is there any polite statement we could make to get him to stop the ego talk? -- Had It Dear Had It: Poor Ralph. This is obviously the only thing he has to brag about, and he’s not going to stop as long as he thinks he can still get mileage out of it. Try to be tolerant. When he mentions his award, plaster a fake smile onto your face, pat his arm and say, “Yes, Ralph, we know,” and then change the subject or walk away. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Some Talk, Please,” who reports that her husband is otherwise a good guy, but rarely talks to her and sulks for sex. She also said that one of her children has been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome. I would like to remind her that the apple does not fall far from the tree. If they have a child with Asperger’s, it is possible that her husband may have the same diagnosis. This was the case with my son and my husband. I strongly suspected my husband had some form of autism. He was gracious enough to see a psychiatrist, who diagnosed him with Asperger syndrome and schizoid disorder. My husband truly is clueless about intimacy. There are resources available on the Internet for spouses of people with Asperger’s and also for those who want to learn how to be intimate. I let my hubby know I am grateful for all he does. I also let him know that when my emotional needs are met, then I will engage in sex. -- Been There, Done That Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
