Busy year for planning department CAROLYN GRANT

Kimberley City Council received a number of year end reports at their first meeting of 2013, including a building department report that indicates there is a long way to go to match the glory days of six or seven years ago. Cumulative values of building permits for 2012 were $5,761,657,

which while $700,000 up from 2011, are $2.4 million down from 2010. “We still have a ways to go,” said Coun. Jack Ratcliffe. However, the City’s planning department has been busy, as outlined in a report by Manager of Planning Services Troy Pollock. In addition to building permits and inspection services, the Plan-


ning Department looks after land use planning and development applications, subdivision applications, municipal land disposition and acquisition, and long range planning and sustainability. There are a number of large development and subdivision projects on the books in Kimberley, though there is current activity on very few.

Homesteads, River Ridge Way, Forest Crowne Phase 3, Sullivan Landing, The Summit at Taylor’s Mill, Deer Run Drive, Dreamcatcher, Kimberley Crossing, Mark Creek Landing and the Northeast Expansion lands, are all at various stages of the planning process. The permit on 49 Deer Park has expired. And the City is waiting submission of the de-


velopment permit application for the seniors housing project on Church Street. The light industrial park lands in Marsyville have gone through the environmental assessment process and received a certificate of compliance. A certificate of compliance for the Marysville Benchlands is expected in 2013.

The Weather Network 2013

He addressed the audience as “music lovers” when he addressed it — a sign of respect, when you think about it. It was a riveting display — it was hard to take your eyes off him, but when he gave you the chance to, you were again aware that behind this kinetic force at the front of the stage were Paul Langlois and Rob Baker on guitars, Gord Sinclair on bass and Johnny Fay on drums: Canada’s greatest rock band. The Tragically Hip’s music is cerebral, with great depths of meaning and musicianship. But like all pagan art seeks to accomplish, the audience left after this rock journey having been affected at a physical, primeval level.


arly on in the Tragically Hip gathering, Saturday night in Cranbrook, front man Gord Downie posed the ultimate referendum question — “Wouldn’t you … ?” (only in Canada can a man on stage say “let’s have a referendum,” and the crowd goes wild.) The answer was a resounding yes from a sold-out, rather tumultuous Western Financial Place crowd. The stage was thus set for an evening of metaphor presented at full throttle. Rock music is pagan art at its high point of evolution — transporting, humanistic, subversive, interactive and impossible to ignore. Of all art forms, it is the cauldron where poetry, theatre and the expression of our human hungers best combine. And it is meant to be performed live, to carry audiences along with it like a shock wave. And it could be argued that a dual guitar attack, a rhythm section that keeps our limbic systems in turmoil, and a front man in full poetic frenzy is the ultimate expression of the genre. The Tragically Hip launched their “Now For Plan A” Canadian tour at Western Financial Place in Cranbrook, Saturday, Jan. 19 — in support of the album of the same name. If tour openers are a chance for a band to work out the bugs, to warm up for the gruelling trek ahead, the Hip were having none of it. There is no Plan B. They kicked off their tour at full tilt, their reputation as a legendary

Paul Langlois and Gord Downie. live act uncontestable, the energy spontaneous. Their setlist encapsulated a 25-year body of work into a two-hour showpiece of rock theatre, spontaneous and compelling, that brought the audience along on a strange mystical journey. “Quickly,” they say, “follow the unknown with something familiar.” Downie is a performer designed for the big venue, for arena work. He can establish an intimate connnection with an audience of thousands without sacrific-

ing nuance or subtlety in front of the sonic wall roaring off the stage. On Saturday, his rock theatre expression carried the audience along several subplots and through-lines, the most intriguing of which was his relationship with his microphone, an inanimate object which he brought to life — à la Fred Astaire’s hat rack — so that it became a character all of its own, with a personality to intrigue us and a message for us to decipher. He used one other prop — a hankerchief

Annalee Grant photo

— to create his stage persona, a comic/tragic character like Charlie Chaplin combined with a roaring Celtic bard, so that recesses of our psyche can be lit up on a vaudeville stage. Despite this largerthan-life stage persona, Downie is sincere. He wants us there with him — the way he moves is the way he feels in his heart, he assured us. As is his wont, he riffed, rapped and free-associated on a variety of themes, quirky compliments to the poetry of the song lyrics.

The Arkells: Opening up the show was a band originally from Hamilton, Ontario, who deserve a much higher profile in the music world and are likely to get it. A five-piece band whose own front man Max Kerman is carrying on the spirit of Joe Strummer, the Arkells play hard-driving pop music with a punk sensibility and great musicianship. Immensely entertaining in their own right, they did what an opening band is supposed to do — set a good level of electricity and maximum energy, so that when their set is done you know that if they were that good, the main event is going to blow the roof off the place. Cranbrook rarely gets a show with this level of intensity.

Greyhound to reduce Highway 3 runs From Page 1 “The reductions in the province are being made because of serious losses across the province,” said Grant Odsen, regional manager of passenger services for Greyhound Canada in B.C. Currently, the route goes through Cranbrook daily in both directions, and an additional three times a week in each direction. Odsen said they have asked the board to drop the additional three trips a week, while keeping the service running every day through Cranbrook. “It’s a consistent service, just as we have now,” he said. “This decision allows Greyhound to reduce frequency without abandoning any routes.” Greyhound will continue to run its daily service from Cranbrook to Calgary via Kimberley and Kootenay Nation Park, so passengers will still have access to a

fast-tracked trip to Alberta’s largest city. Ground transportation in the province is regulated by the Passenger Transport Board of B.C., which provides licenses for bus services like Greyhound to operate. They have minimum trips that must be met. Greyhound must apply to the board for any reductions in service. If the application is granted, they will then have to provide a certain amount of notice to customers. For Cranbrook, that means notices will start appearing in the terminal 30 days before the trips are eliminated from their schedule. They will also post notifications on their website, www. Odsen, who spoke from Calgary, said executives were discussing how the changes will take affect. “We’re currently meeting to see what the timelines will be,” he said.

Odsen said the company is committed to offering services in B.C., and with the new changes they can expand their offerings elsewhere to better suit customers. “We want to stay in the province,” he said. With the reduction of services comes the expansions of others. Odsen said they are looking forward to launching their popular Greyhound Express services in B.C. in the late spring, following its success in Alberta. That service will offer customers a more comfortable bus experience with expanded leg room and modern amenities like Wifi. It will operate between B.C.’s major hubs like the Kelowna to Vancouver route. While it won’t hit Cranbrook directly, Odsen said passengers connecting in Kelowna may get a chance to ride the new updated buses once they become available.

Local NEWS Former RCMP officer handed $500 fine

Annalee Gr ant Townsman Staff

Almost a year after charges of theft were brought against a former Cranbrook RCMP officer, Bryden Hennessey pleaded guilty to a lesser offence in Cranbrook Provincial Court on Friday, January 18. Hennessey, who stepped down from the RCMP after he was charged with theft in January of 2012, was found not guilty of theft, but instead pleaded guilty to breaching the offence act. He was given a fine of $500, to be paid within 30 days. After an RCMP investigation, Hennessey was found to have taken a laptop while on official RCMP duty. The laptop was never turned in as evidence, and its whereabouts are still unknown. Hennessey’s new charge, which he pleaded guilty to, was a breach of the Offence Act, section 23. It states that: “A person who executes a warrant may seize, in addition to the things mentioned in the warrant, anything that on reasonable grounds the person believes has been obtained by, or has been used in, the commission of an offence.” However, Hennessey did not properly follow the act when he failed to return the item to the person it was seized from or bring the item to a justice to be dealt with. Deputy of Regional Crown Counsel for the Kootenays, Philip Seagram told court the circumstances around the seizure that lead to the initial charges. On August 6, 2011, Hennessey was called to a local pawn shop after

the owner contacted the RCMP to report a possible stolen laptop. Hennessey attended, and after doing some checks on the RCMP computer system, could not find a report that the laptop had been stolen, but advised that he would take the item back to the detachment for further investigation by more computer-savvy officers. The laptop is described as a used E-Machines laptop with feminine details on the desktop. It was pawned for $100 and was to be resold for $140. Hennessey left with the laptop and power cord. A few days later, now-retired Cpl. Chris Faulkner attended the pawn shop on an unrelated matter. The owner of the shop enquired about the laptop that was seized by Hennessey. Faulkner told the shop owner that he would look into it. After returning to the detachment, Faulkner checked the computer system to see if the laptop had been logged into evidence by Hennessey. The file stated that there had been no seizure of any property, and that no action had been taken. Faulkner told the shop owner that the item had not been taken, and upon review of video surveillance, the owner was able to prove that the item had been removed from the store by the RCMP officer. Hennessey’s fellow officers on duty that day all reported not seeing a laptop. Cpl. Bob Potter, who was the shift supervisor on August 6, 2011, later recalled reviewing Hennessey’s file and specifically asking him if any property had been

seized. Hennessey confirmed that nothing had been taken, and Potter himself amended the file. An internal investigation was sparked in October, and the laptop was in fact found to be missing. Chief Superintendent Michael Sekela visited Cranbrook on January 31, 2012 to announce the charges to media. “I’ve stated before that allegations of misconduct by our members are extremely troubling,” Sekela said at the time. “They are troubling to the public, and they are troubling to me. But they are also troubling to the over 9,000 RCMP members in British Columbia who have the highest moral and ethical standards.” The file was then handed over to the Crown and has been working its way through the court system ever since. The RCMP offered $140 in restitution to the pawn shop for the value of the laptop. Hennessey paid that amount back to the detachment on Friday. Counsel for Hennessey, Duncan Smith, confirmed the circumstances, but added a few details. Smith said Hennessey had planned to take the laptop back to the detachment to deliver to more experienced officers, but he did not follow proper protocol for entering evidence. “What we have here is good intentions, which led him down an unfortunate path,” Smith said. The item should have been entered into the evidence locker, but Smith said Hennessey was dealing with the break down of his mar-

VICTORIA – Logging contractors compensated for loss of work when the B.C. government bought back forest tenure from big timber companies 10 years ago will get nearly $10 million in federal tax repaid to them, Premier Christy Clark announced Friday. Speaking to the Truck Loggers’ Association convention, Clark said the tax break was agreed to by federal finance officials after

the latest plea from B.C. Finance Minister Mike de Jong. The tax bill for 300 logging contractors has been a sore point for the industry since the B.C. government undertook a sweeping reorganization of Crown timber licences in 2003. A trust fund paid out $71 million after harvest licences were taken back from large companies to offer community and aboriginal logging projects. The B.C. government later moved to exempt the compensa-

Smith said that by not following the proper protocols, “this laptop went astray.” He stressed that this case proves why those protocols should be followed in the first place. He also said the quality and low value of the laptop were reason enough to question why Hennessey would be willing to throw away a career with the RCMP. Seagram and Smith entered a joint submission for sentencing, requesting a fine of $500. They both outlined the consequences that have already befallen Hennessey, including the loss of his career and marriage. The Crown also noted that the RCMP had to use significant resources to investigate the missing laptop, and the incident brought

tion payments from provincial income tax, but Ottawa continued to treat the money as taxable income until now. Clark also updated the audience on her pledge from last year to establish a fund to protect logging contractors who supply timber and don’t get paid when a mill operator goes broke. She said the $5 million announced last year is now available for payments if required, and more money will be added as the government can afford to.

embarrassment to the RCMP. Smith countered that although the RCMP used resources to investigate the potential theft, there were other options available that would have been less time consuming and expensive. He did not say what those methods were. Hennessey declined to say anything to the court. Judge Grant Sheard, who heard the matter, stood the matter down to consider his sentence. When he returned, he handed

down the fine of $500 for contravening the offence act, and found Hennessey not guilty to the original theft charge. At the January 31, 2012 press conference, Sekela reported that Hennessey had voluntarily stepped down following the investigation. “He will never work for the RCMP again,” he said. Henessey attended Depot Division in August of 2001, and was posted to Cranbrook in 2007.

The importance of free play DANIELLE STR APKO


oday’s society is rushed, busy having children grow up as fast as they can, which decreases their amount of free play time. Play is essential to healthy growth and development, allowing children to be children and not taking on adult roles too soon. Play needs to be safe, so supervision is important. However, children need to feel free and uninhibited in their play. Therefore, families must be aware to not over-direct or put too much structure around their children’s play. When play is controlled by adults, children adopt the rules and concerns set out by those adults and lose the ability to be creative, take on leadership roles, and develop group skills. These skills allow children to resolve conflicts, and enhance self-advocacy skills. Benefits of free play: • Free, unstructured play time allows children to be creative, developing their brain by increasing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional development. • Free play allows children to build confidence and resiliency which will help them deal with challenges in the future. • Less verbal children express their views, experiences, and even frustrations through play, allowing families an opportunity to gain a fuller understanding of their child’s perspective.

• Play also often increases physical activity, which decreases the obesity rate. • Research has shown that play lets children make sense of the world; expand social and cultural understandings; express personal thoughts and feelings; practice flexible and divergent thinking; encounter and solve real problems; learn to consider other people’s perspectives; negotiate play roles and plans; develop self-control; extend language and literacy skills; and enhance brain and motor development. • Pretend play or imaginative play is also beneficial, because it expands children’s language and vocabulary growth, increases memory abilities, and enhances reasoning and problem solving skills. What key factors can lead to decreased play? • There are more families with a single head of household or two working parents so families have less time and energy to supervise safe play for their children. • Families can feel pressured to enroll children into many structured programs to give them a competitive edge, leaving little time for their children to engage in un-

structured, free play time. • Families may not have the time to supervise outdoor free play time and, depending on the age of the child and the neighbourhood a family lives in, it may not be safe for children to play outside unsupervised. • Technology has often replaced active, physical, engaged play. Many children do not want to go outside and play if they can stay home and play video games and watch television instead. Children who have decreased play time when they are younger show increased incidence of depression, anxiety, perfectionism, and stress in their college years. Children need traits that will help them succeed in life that can be fostered through play. These traits include confidence, resiliency, honesty, generosity, decency, tenacity, and compassion. Let your child take the lead, relax, have fun and play! This article was submitted by the Cranbrook Early Childhood Development Committee.

MLA: Ktunaxa treaty explained


reaty negotiations between Canada, B.C. and the Ktunaxa were recently in the news and some citizens have made public statements that are partly true and partly wrong. In this short space, I will try to provide accurate information on treaty negotiations, as well as where I stand as MLA. First off, there is no final treaty, we are years away from a final treaty and there may or may not be a final treaty. Next, some history. A profound event happened in 1982 that influences how governments work with First Nations. Our Canadian Constitution was changed to recognize aboriginal rights and a unique aboriginal interest in Crown land. Since 1982, in hundreds of legal cases, the courts have interpreted what those rights and title interests mean. This makes it difficult to know what government’s responsibilities are. Bottom line: B.C. is legally obligated to consult with First Nations on almost everything that is proposed for Crown land. And the theory is: treaties bring more certainty. While it is true B.C. could leave the Canada-B.C. treaty process, the Supreme Court of Canada has said repeatedly that aboriginal rights and title issues are better resolved by negotiated treaties than court actions. And since B.C. loses most court actions, it makes more sense to try to negotiate treaties. Better these important matters are in the hands of democratically elected Canadian, B.C. and First Nations governments than the courts. Unlike all other provinces, B.C. has very few treaties. In the 1700s and 1800s when other provinces were negotiating treaties, Canada and B.C. negotiated treaties only in the Peace and on southern Vancouver Island. This makes our situation in B.C. much more complex and challenging. The treaty process in B.C. has not been

An inauguration marks America’s rebirth William Marsden Postmedia News

WASHINGTON - Every four years Americans celebrate a new dawn. They dust off their poets. They flex their vocal cords against the strains of national and patriotic anthems. Musicians tune their brass. Marching bands practise their steps. Soldiers polish their boots. The nation raises yet more flags and festoons its buildings with crinkled bunting. Fireworks are put at the ready. And millions of citizens prepare to witness the pageantry. No democracy in the world celebrates a new government - even when it’s a reaffirmation of the old - with the same gusto as the United States of America. Michael Cornfield, a political scientist at George Washington University, said the inauguration is a celebration of a peaceful handover of a “powerful constituted, democratically rooted” government, in this case the 57th elected president. Yet if that were the case, most democracies would likely indulge in similar festivities. But they don’t. The reason, said one inauguration worker, is that America is a nation where citizens view their government not just as theirs but as them. It’s a mirror image of their own destiny. “It’s like we are celebrating a new beginning,” she said. This new beginning is, of course, not for

everybody. The triumphalism is not universal. The nation is not one. Republicans traditionally leave D.C. to the winners, preferring to get out of town and to use the break to plot strategy for the winner’s eventual demise. Hypocrisy is deeply rooted in the affirmation. America is a secular nation, yet presidents swear their oath to uphold the constitution on a Bible and end it with “So help me God” – a practice begun spontaneously by the first president George Washington. On Monday, U.S. President Barack Obama will swear his oath, not on one Bible or even two, but on three: Abraham Lincoln’s Bible (on loan from the Library of Congress), Martin Luther King’s Bible, plus the Obama family Bible. It’s considered a record stack in a country that keeps careful track of these historical milestones. And it’s a mighty embrace of America’s Judeo-Christian religion, Cornfield said. (If Mitt Romney had won, would he have sworn his oath on the Book of Mormon? How would that have gone over?) The swearing-in will feature Texas pop singer Kelly Clarkson singing America (My country `Tis of Thee), James Taylor singing America the Beautiful and Beyoncé ending the ceremony with the national anthem. Many Americans, however, will wait with greater anticipation for the words of

Obama’s inaugural poet Richard Blanco. A 44-year-old Cuban immigrant, his poetry is often about his homosexuality, such as his poem Queer Theory: According to my Grandmother: “Avoid hugging men, but if you must/pat them real hard/on the back, even/if it’s your father.” Obama has reportedly asked Blanco to write three poems, from which, no doubt, he’ll select the right one. But what if there isn’t a right one? Well, inaugural poets aren’t a big tradition. In the end, however, it’s the inaugural speech that counts. Traditionally, it stands as a message not just to the American people but also to the world and perhaps generations beyond. Most important, Cornfield said, will be the tone. Will it promise bold action or conciliation? Will Obama speak in grand universals or single out issues such as gun control or climate change? Will he make promises he cannot keep, as he did in 2009? Will he over-reach? Ten huge balls will follow the parade of marching bands and 203 animals plus, of course, the president and vice-president down Pennsylvania Avenue. Democrats have to be careful the festivities aren’t too over the top. The murders of 20 school children and six of their educators on Dec. 14 in Newtown, Conn., still cast a dark shadow over America. “It would be unseemly to be too exuberant,” Cornfield said.

Schacher lifts Nitros to 4-3 OT win over Lakers TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kimberley Dynamiters snapped a four-game losing skid with a 4-3 OT victory over the visiting Penticton Lakers on Saturday night at the Civic Centre. Isaac Schacher was the overtime hero who scored after the Nitros erased a three-goal deficit in the third period to force the extra frame. Jeremy Mousseau made 38 saves in goal for Kimberley, while Stephen Yesavage turned away 23 pucks in defeat for the Lakers. Penticton scored a single marker in each

period, starting with Kevin Warwick in the first frame, Ryan Carson in the second, and Christian Brandt in the third. However, the Nitros sparked after that, and Connor Kutzner, Erick Buckley and Jason Richter scored consecutive goals to pull things even by the end of the game. It was a parade to the penalty box for the Nitros, as the Lakers had nine powerplays, converting twice on the goals from Warwick and Carson. Kimberley failed to make good on their only powerplay of the game in the opening period.

Kelsey Thompson, who plays left side for the Avalanche, goes for a hit as members of the VIU Mariners attempt a block during volleyball action at the College of the Rockies on Friday.

Mariners make things tough for the Avs TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Avalanche had trouble containing the visiting Vancouver Island University Mariners this weekend, as the men split their record, while the women struggled through two losses. The women dropped three straight sets to the Mariners on Friday, and while they put up a better fight on Saturday, the Mariners again man-

aged another three-set victory. The men had a good start on Friday, winning two straight sets before the Mariners fought back and took the third. However, the Avs rallied for the final set and won by a two-point margin to win the match. “Friday we came out and followed the game plan very well and executed very well,” said Avalanche men’s coach Steve Kamps. “It was a

great match, VIU came in and played very well, played some excellent defence. “It was a battle— each set went to within two points so it was very entertaining volleyball.” However, while the team savoured their win on Friday, they couldn’t replicate that success in a rematch the following day. “Came out Saturday and was just kind of flat again—that’s two week-

ends in a row now,” added Kamps, referencing last weekend’s record of a Friday win against the Camosun College Chagers, before losing their rematch the day after. “After a big win on Friday, we seem to have trouble getting up for the match on Saturday, or whatever you want to call it,” said Kamps. “It seems like we’re content with the win on Friday and we don’t prepare as

much with the little things on Saturday that aren’t there, as they are on Friday, so it’s something we hope to fix very soon and it’ll be nice to start winning both at home.” The Avs have another home set thiscoming weekend, as the men face the top-ranked Douglas College Royals, while the opposing women occupy fifth place in the Pacwest standings.

Ice return home with four straight wins TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

The Kootenay Ice made it a sweep over the weekend, dumping the Regina Pats and the Moose Jaw Warriors for a perfect record during a four-game road trip into Saskatchewan. “I think we never stopped battling within all those games,” said Ice assistant coach Chad Kletzel. “We had some players stepped up in key times with big goals and some saves at the right times.” Kootenay has now won 11 of their last 12 games and climbed to within four points of the last playoff spot in the

Eastern Conference. The streak has helped the team build some confidence, especially when it comes at the expense of overtime or a shootout. “I think it’s an opportunity to be in those situations and build confidence in those situations and to see guys succeed in those is always good for the team,” Kletzel said. Zach McPhee’s shootout winner lifted the Ice to a 3-2 victory over the Moose Jaw Warriors in their last game of their four-game excursion into the prairies on Saturday night. The Warriors had a

2-1 lead going into the final period on a pair of goals from Kendall McFaull, while Sam Reinhart had answered for Kootenay. Jaedon Descheneau notched the tying marker in the third period, which sent the contest into overtime, and eventually, a shootout. Ice goaltender Mackenzie Skapski made 10 stops in the shootout round, and 22 saves over the course of the game. Kootenay, and Skapski for that matter, have yet to lose if a game makes it into a shootout this season. “If you look at his record, he’s had lots of

success and he’s done a very good job in those, stopping the puck and giving us an opportunity to win those shootouts,” said Kletzel. Kootenay was denied on their one and only chance on the powerplay, while Moose Jaw converted once in two opportunities with the man-advantage. Earlier on Friday, the Ice took away their only regulation win of the trip by defeating the Regina Pats 2-1. Dyson Stevenson opened the scoring in the first period for Regina, before Descheneau tied it up in the second period, and added the

game winner in the third. The sin bins were quiet, as the game’s only infraction went against the Pats, but Kootenay was unable to convert on the powerplay. Skapski made 29 saves in the crease, while Matt Hewitt turned away 24 shots for Regina. Earlier last week, the Ice beat the Raiders and the Saskatoon Blades as they began a four-game schedule over five days. Kootenay has one home game this week as they host the Warriors for a rematch on Wednesday at Western Financial Place.

All-Harbaugh Super Bowl as 49ers, Ravens set to clash Howard Fendrich Associated Press

Preparing to coach the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC championship game Sunday night, John Harbaugh watched on the stadium’s big video screen as Jim Harbaugh’s San Francisco 49ers wrapped up their victory in the NFC championship game. John looked into a nearby TV camera, smiled broadly and said: “Hey, Jim, congratulations. You did it. You’re a great coach. Love you.” Less than four hours later, the Ravens won, too. Some siblings try to beat each other in backyard games. These guys will do it in the biggest game of all. Yes, get ready for the Brother Bowl. It’ll be Harbaugh vs. Harbaugh when Big Bro John’s Ravens play Little Bro Jim’s 49ers in the Super Bowl at New Orleans in two weeks. As much chatter as there will be about the players involved - from Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis and his impending retirement to 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s sudden emergence - the Harbaugh family angle will make this coaching matchup the most scrutinized in the nearly half-century of Super Sundays. The Harbaughs’ sister, Joani Crean, wrote in a text to The Associated Press: “Overwhelmed with pride for John, Jim and their families! They

deserve all that has come their way! Team Harbaugh!” Who’s a parent to cheer for? During the 2011 regular season, the Harbaughs became the only brothers to coach against each other in any NFL game (the Ravens beat the 49ers 16-6 on Thanksgiving Day that year). Now they’ll be squaring off with a championship at stake in a Super

Bowl filled with firsts and one truly significant last. It will be the first one between coaching brothers, of course. First one for Joe Flacco, the oft-doubted Ravens quarterback with the superb touch on deep balls and a QB-record six post-season road wins. First one for Kaepernick, the second-year player with the tattooed arms, the sprinter’s speed, and a shoulder that zips throws like the high

school baseball pitcher he used to be. And it will be the last game for 17-year veteran Lewis, Baltimore’s emotional leader and this post-season’s top tackler with 44 so far. “This is our time,” Lewis pronounced. He appeared to be on the verge of tears before and after helping Baltimore become the only team in 68 tries to overcome a halftime deficit against Patriots quarter-

back Tom Brady in Foxborough, Mass. The NFC West champion 49ers (13-4-1) open as 5-point favourites, seeking a record-tying sixth Super Bowl title but first since 1995. The franchise of Hall of Fame quarterbacks Joe Montana and Steve Young is 5-0 in Super Bowls. The AFC South champion Ravens (136) are headed to their second Super Bowl; Lewis was the MVP when Baltimore beat

the New York Giants in 2001. With Kaepernick’s terrific passing - he was 16 of 21 for 233 yards and a touchdown in only his ninth career NFL start - and two TD runs by Frank Gore, San Francisco erased a 17point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 Sunday. Baltimore then fashioned a comeback of its own by scoring the last 21 points to defeat the New England Patriots 28-13, thanks in large part to Flacco’s three second-half touchdown tosses, two to Anquan Boldin. In the often riskaverse NFL, each Harbaugh made a critical change late in the regular season in a bid to boost his team’s post-season chances. Clearly, both moves worked. After 49ers quarterback Alex Smith, the starter in last season’s overtime NFC title game loss to the New York Giants, got a concussion, Jim switched to Kaepernick for Week 11 - and never switched back. Now San Francisco has its first three-game winning streak of the season, at precisely the right time. Baltimore, meanwhile, was in the midst of a three-game losing streak when John fired offensive co-ordinator Cam Cameron and promoted quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell to replace him.

The 50-year-old John is 15 months older than Jim and generally the less demonstrative of the pair, although John certainly did not lack intensity while making his case with officials a couple of times Sunday. The ever-excitable Jim - who was treated for an irregular heartbeat in November - was up to his usual sideline

antics in Atlanta. He spun around and sent his headset flying when the original call stood after he threw his red challenge flag on a catch by the Falcons. He hopped and yelled at his defence to get off the field after their key fourth-down stop with less than 1 1/2 minutes left. He made an emphatic-as-can-be time-

out signal with 13 seconds remaining. Expect CBS to fill plenty of time during its Super Bowl broadcast with shots of Jim, that trademark red pen dangling in front of his chest, and John, who usually wears a black Ravens hat. Yes, that is sure to be a focal point, until they meet for a postgame handshake.

ATLANTA - The Falcons blew another post-season lead, and this time Matt Ryan couldn’t help Atlanta recover in a 28-24 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game Sunday. The Falcons led 17-0 in the first half and 24-21 entering the fourth quarter. Frank Gore’s second touchdown run midway

through the quarter gave San Francisco its first lead. Ryan led the Falcons from the Atlanta 20 to the 49ers 10. On fourthand-4 from the 10, Ryan’s pass over the middle for Roddy White was deflected by linebacker NaVorro Bowman. It was the second straight week the Falcons blew a big lead. They led Seattle 20-0 in the first half of last week’s divi-

sional playoff game but needed a late field goal by Matt Bryant for a 30-28 win. The field goal was set up by Ryan’s two clutch passes. The Falcons had one last chance, taking the ball on their 41 with 6 seconds remaining. Ryan completed a pass to Julio Jones at the 49ers 35 as the game ended. The Falcons (14-4) were denied their second Super Bowl appearance.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady’s pass deflected high into the air off the hand of Baltimore lineman Pernell McPhee before floating gently downfield and into the arms of linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. And the rematch went to the Ravens. A year after the New England Patriots took advantage of a dropped

touchdown and a missed Baltimore field goal to advance to their fifth Super Bowl in 11 seasons, the Ravens held on for a 28-13 victory on Sunday in the AFC championship game. After falling behind 28-13, the Patriots marched down the field before Brady’s tipped interception in the fourth quarter essentially ended their chances of a comeback.

Brady, who had 37 touchdowns and eight interceptions in the first 17 games this season, was also picked off in the end zone with 66 seconds left, allowing the Ravens to run out the clock. The Patriots, who had the highest-scoring offence in the NFL this season, were held to a season-low point total in their finale and more than 20 below their average.

Hockey fans in a frenzy as NHL action returns after lockout Benjamin Shingler Canadian Press

MONTREAL - Hockey fans from coast-tocoast were celebrating the return of NHL action on Saturday, with many saying they were ready to forget the lengthy lockout that nearly cost the season. Teams opened the season to frenzied crowds that cheered and sometimes booed the product on the ice. Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield even sent out a series of Tweets from space welcoming back NHL hockey. Before the opening night game in Montreal, many Canadiens and Maple Leafs fans said they were far too excited about the matchup to

harbour any more anger over the work stoppage. “I’ve played hockey my whole life and I can’t live without it,” said Myles Resnick, an 18-year-old Leafs fan who made the trip from Toronto with friends. Resnick said he was angry during the lockout but loved hockey too much to stay away. “As soon as it was over I jumped right back on.” The Canadiens lost 2-1. Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, the city’s famously loud fans welcomed their home team back for a second season. The Jets played the Ottawa Senators on Saturday afternoon in front a sellout crowd, with the Senators winning 4-1.

The team reached out to fans by offering half price food and drinks. Draft beers were $4.25 instead of $8.50, and $8 hot dogs were $4. Kasia Dolna, who was wearing a Daniel Alfredsson Senators jersey in a sea of Jets gear, said she appreciated the gesture and had no misgivings about supporting the league. “Not at all,” Dolna said as she headed into the arena. “I’m a huge hockey fan. (The lockout) sucked... but I can’t wait for the game.” Another fan, Billy Kent, whose family has season tickets, said he wasn’t about to stop being a hockey fan - especially with the Jets back in town.

“It’s a little frustrating,” he said. “I don’t even know what side to side really with, I guess. But it’s back now, and it’s over with.” There were some signs of discontent, however. A scattering of boos greeted Jets defenceman Ron Hainsey during the pre-game introductions. Hainsey

was the team’s representative during the labour negotiations with the league and was often front and centre during talks with the owners. The frenzy around Montreal’s Bell Centre began early in the day. Despite steady snowfall, thousands turned out to see the Canadiens and Leafs during their game-day skates,

which were made open to fans as part of an attempt to make amends. Later on, the rock band Simple Plan played a free concert outside the arena, while a nearby boutique offering 50 per cent off Habs merchandise attracted a crowd three people thick. The Canadiens opened the game with a tribute to the team’s for-

mer greats and a “passing of the torch” to the current team. In Boston, though, Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs began with an apology to fans. At a press conference prior to Saturday night’s opener against the New York Rangers, he said the Bruins would try to make it up to their fans by playing hard and winning.

Kings raise championship banner to open new season Greg Beacham Associated Press

LOS ANGELES - The Los Angeles Kings raised their first Stanley Cup championship banner Saturday in a joyous ceremony delayed more than three months by the NHL lockout.

With help from the family of a victim of the Sandy Hook massacre, the Kings hung their black-and-white banner in the rafters at Staples Center and received their championship rings before their season opener against the Chicago

Blackhawks. The ceremony was the culmination of Los Angeles’ improbable rampage through the post-season last year, when they became the first eighth-seeded team to capture the Cup. The Kings hadn’t

played on the Staples Center ice since last June 11, when they completed a six-game victory over the New Jersey Devils in the Stanley Cup finals with a 6-1 win, earning the 45-year-old franchise’s first NHL championship.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) You might be emotional, but it won’t be shocking to those who understand your penchant for passionate displays. You seem to be full of surprises, which often jolts your entourage. In a sense, you are in the middle of a major transformation. Tonight: By all means, be spontaneous. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You sense -- quite accurately -- that certain aspects of life are out of control. The people involved also could be bouncing off the walls. You might question the best way to ground them. You’ll need all of your energy in order to anchor in. Tonight: Make it an early night. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You nearly leap into your day, ready to get a project launched. Your ideas seem to fly out so naturally and quickly that others might be taken aback. An element of the unexpected punctuates the excitement. Tonight: Catch up on a good friend’s news.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) What would your immediate circle do without you? You are far more instrumental than you realize. People count on you; you know this and respond accordingly. Surprising news heads in your direction and encourages you to rethink a decision. Tonight: Others follow your lead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You love being on stage, and all the better if it’s a new one. You might decide to seek out some variety for excitement. In a meeting among peers, you naturally beam, no matter what scenario plays out. You can’t change your innate personality. Tonight: Where people are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You perceive a situation far differently from an associate. You are sure that you are right, yet this person feels he or she is right. Now what? Remember who is in command, and bow to this authority. Someone needs to take charge, and it isn’t you today. Tonight: To the wee hours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You could be stuck on a merry-

For Better or Worse

go-round of Monday madness. Be smart and detach, if you want to make a successful break for it. You might opt to head in a totally different direction once you recognize the futility of the present path. Tonight: Don’t react. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A key associate demands your time and attention. Make it your pleasure, as the alternative would be far from pleasant. Sometimes you have difficulty relating to this person. He or she seems superficial and can’t seem to grasp the totality of your thoughts. Tonight: Tame your ego. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You are not a sign that hangs back. Today, you can try that role. Maintain a sense of humor. A family member is willing to go to the emotional cliff and jump off if he or she doesn’t get what he or she wants. Strap yourself in. Tonight: Sort through suggestions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Look at the big picture. Don’t panic. Simply prioritize you

itinerary and pace yourself. You quickly will find a way out of this dilemma. You suddenly could veer in a new direction, once you have some space to breathe. Tonight: Use your high energy well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You are brimming with levity and mischievous insights, no matter how serious the moment gets. You can’t help yourself. Be careful with whom you share these thoughts, as you could make an enemy without meaning to. Tonight: Kick up your heels. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Emphasize your personal and domestic life. You know what you want, and you have an idea of what to expect. Perhaps you need to break out of the mold and go for that fantastic dream you have. If it involves your domestic life, it can happen. Tonight: At home, naturally. BORN TODAY Singer Billy Ocean (1950), golfer Jack Nicklaus (1940), disk jockey Wolfman Jack (1938) ***

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: I have an 11-year-old daughter, and I feel she may know more about the “birds and bees” than she should because of what she sees on TV and hears on the radio. It seems that every time I turn on the radio, we hear a song with the word “sex” in it multiple times. When we watch TV (even so-called family shows on family-oriented channels), we see people passionately kissing or using words like “penis” and “vagina.” What do you think of sharing information about sex with preteens? -- Mom Dear Mom: By the time a child is 11, she should know plenty about the birds and the bees, presumably because her parents have explained things to her. And she should also know the correct terms for parts of the anatomy, including the private parts. Parents often wait to discuss these things with their kids, not only because they are uncomfortable doing so, but also because they believe their children don’t need this information until they are older and educating them will somehow encourage them to have sex. This is not true. It only means your child will get his or her sexual information from unreliable and misleading sources -friends, the Internet, songs on the radio and messages on TV. Teaching your child about sex, with your own moral values attached, will allow her to respond appropriately to situations when she encounters them -- and she undoubtedly will. When she hears something objectionable on TV or the radio, use it as an opportunity to explain your feelings on the subject. And you always have the option of changing the channel, setting parental controls or turning it off. Dear Annie: In the three years that I’ve been with my boyfriend, I’ve become very close with his family. My boyfriend’s brother, “Scott,” has two children, ages 9 and 5. My concern is that they have no heat in their house. They say they periodically cannot afford the bill. Instead, they use space heaters in the bedrooms. I get that the economy is tough, and I’m not saying I’ve never turned off my heat, but I don’t have young children. Their mother somehow manages to get her hair done at the salon every month, but the kids can’t play in the family room because it’s freezing. Is this considered neglect? I don’t want to jump to conclusions. -- Oregon Dear Oregon: You are kind to be concerned about these kids. Assuming those space heaters are working properly and there are no fire hazards, however, they do not seem to be in any danger of hypothermia. Are they dressed warmly? Can they bundle up in lots of blankets? Do they have other places to go that are heated -- the grandparents’ house, school, libraries, etc.? Your boyfriend also can inform his brother that Oregon, like other states, offers assistance with heating bills for low-income families. He can check online or call 2-1-1 for local resources. Dear Annie: I would like to assure “Too Clean” that she is not alone. My friends call me “Mrs. OCD,” but my logic is that anyone can visit my house at any time, and I don’t have to be concerned. It’s always clean. And like “Too Clean,” travel is stressful for me. I break out in hives anytime I have to go long distances, and I’m traumatized if I have to use the restroom away from home. I find it easier when I keep my mind and hands busy, so I take my laptop and play games, look at photos, read and do crosswords. With today’s technology, it is easy to entertain my overactive brain. This is my own form of therapy. -- Wyoming Dear Wyoming: Thanks for the great ideas. Annie’s Snippet, credit Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

Literacy starts with the family As a child grows so he or she develops the tools necessary for survival and one of the most important tools for a child’s success in life is literacy.

Numerous bodies found after Algerian hostage crisis Aomar Ouali and Paul Schemm Associated Press

ALGIERS, Algeria — Algerian bomb squads scouring a gas plant where Islamist militants took dozens of foreign workers hostage found “numerous’’ new bodies on Sunday as they searched for explosive traps left behind by the attackers, a security official said, a day after a bloody raid ended the fourday siege of the remote desert refinery. Algerian special forces stormed the natural gas complex in the Sahara desert on Saturday to end the standoff, and the government said all 32 militants were killed. Earlier Sunday, Algeria’s chief government spokesman said he feared the toll of hostages — which stood at 23 on Saturday — would rise as the special forces teams finished their search. One American, a Texan — Frederick Buttaccio from the Houston suburb of Katy — was among the dead. The militants came from six countries and were armed to cause maximum destruction. Sonatrach, the Algerian state oil company running the Ain Amenas site along with BP and Norway’s Statoil, said the entire refinery had been mined. “They had decided to succeed in the operation as planned, to blow up the gas complex and kill all the hostages,’’ said Communications Minister Mohamed Said, speaking on a state radio interview. The American government had warned that there were credible threats of more kidnapping attempts on Westerners. With few details emerging from the remote site in eastern Algeria, it was unclear whether anyone was rescued in the final operation, but the number of hostages killed Saturday — seven — was how many the militants had said that morning they still had. British Prime Minister David Cameron said Sunday that three Britons were killed

and another three are believed dead, along with a foreigner who was living in Britain. He said that 22 Britons who survived the ordeal are now back in Britain. In Ottawa, Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird issued a statement condemning “the deplorable and cowardly attacks by terrorists in Ain Amenas, Algeria.’’ Baird said it’s believed there were no Canadians or dual nationals are among the hostages, and that one permanent resident of Canada who was reported to be onsite has left Algeria and is safe. There were reports Friday that a news agency in Mauritania — Agence Nouakchott d’Information — has quoted an unnamed source with the militant group who says the hostage-takers included people from Mali, Egypt, Niger, Mauritania and Canada. Ottawa says it is “pursuing all appropriate channels to seek further information’’ and is in close contact with Algerian authorities. The siege at Ain Amenas transfixed the world after radical Islamists linked to al-Qaida stormed the complex on Wednesday, which contained hundreds of plant workers from all over the world, then held them hostage surrounded by the Algerian military and its attack helicopters for four tense days that were punctuated with gun battles and dramatic tales of escape. Algeria’s response to the crisis was typical of its history in confronting terrorists, favouring military action over negotiation, which caused an international outcry from countries worried about their citizens. Algerian military forces twice assaulted the two areas where the hostages were being held with minimal apparent mediation — first on Thursday, then on Saturday. The U.S. State Department issued a travel warning Saturday night for Americans in or travelling to Algeria, citing credible threats of the kidnapping of Western nationals. The

Immediately after the assault, French President Francois Hollande gave his backing to Algeria’s tough tactics, saying they were “the most adapted response to the crisis.’’ Hollande said the hostages were “shamefully murdered’’ by their captors, and he linked the event to France’s military operation against al-Qaida-backed rebels in neighbouring Mali. In the final assault, the remaining band of militants killed seven hostages before 11 of them were in turn cut down by the special forces, Algeria’s state news agency said. The

military launched its Saturday assault to prevent a fire started by the extremists from engulfing the complex and blowing it up, the report added. A total of 685 Algerian and 107 foreigner workers were freed over the course of the four-day standoff, the Interior Ministry statement said, adding that the group of militants that attacked the remote Saharan natural gas complex consisted of 32 men of various nationalities, including three Algerians and explosives experts. The military also said it confiscated heavy machine-guns, rocket launchers, missiles and grenades attached to suicide belts. The militants came from a Mali-based al-Qaida splinter group run by an Algerian.

Thousands rally in U.S. against gun controls Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — Gun advocates — some with rifles slung across shoulders or pistols holstered at the hip — have rallied peacefully in state capitals nationwide against President Barack Obama’s sweeping federal gun-control proposals. Summoned via social media for the “Guns Across America’’ event, participants gathered Saturday for protests large and small against stricter limits sought on firearms. Some 2,000 turned out in New York and large crowds also rallied in Connecticut, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington state. The rallies came on a day in which accidental shootings at gun shows in North Carolina, Indiana and Ohio left five people hurt. The wounded included two bystanders hit by shotgun pellets after a 12gauge shotgun discharged at a show in

Ted Travis of Guthrie, Okla., joins others in the crowd in a wave of support as rally participants pose for a group photo as the event ends, Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013 in Oklahoma City. Raleigh, N.C., as the owner unzipped its case for a law officer to check at a security entrance, authorities said. Obama recently announced the gun-control proposals in the wake of a Connecticut elementary school shooting that killed 20

first-graders and six educators last month. In Arizona, Oregon and Utah, some came with holstered handguns or rifles on their backs. One man in Phoenix dressed as a Revolutionary War Minuteman, completing his outfit

with an antique long rifle and a sign reading: “Tyrants Beware - 1776.’’ “We’re out here because this country has some very wise founding fathers and they knew they were being oppressed when they were a British colony,’’ said another man at the

Phoenix rally, Eric Cashman. “Had they not had their firearms ... to stand up against the British, we’d still be a British colony.’’ Rallies at statehouses nationwide were organized by Eric Reed, an airline captain from the Houston area who in

November started a group called “More Gun Control (equals) More Crime.’’ At the New York state capitol in Albany, about 2,000 people turned out for a chilly rally, where they chanted “We the People,’’ ‘’USA,“ and ‘’Freedom.“ Many carried American flags and ‘’Don’t Tread On Me“ banners. The event took place four days after Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the nation’s toughest assault weapon and magazine restrictions. In Connecticut, where task forces created by the Legislature and Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy are considering changes to gun laws, police said about 1,000 people showed up on the Capitol grounds. One demonstrator at the rally in Maine, Joe Getchell of Pittsfield, said every law-abiding citizen has a right to bear arms. In Minnesota, where

more than 500 people showed up at the Capitol in St. Paul, Republican state Rep. Tony Cornish said he would push to allow teachers to carry guns in school without a principal or superintendent’s approval and to allow 21-year-olds to carry guns on college campuses. Capitol rallies also took place in Colorado, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Vermont and Wisconsin, among other states. In Texas, Houston resident Robert Thompson attended the rally with his wife and children, ages 12, 5 and 4. Many in the family wore T-shirts reading: “The Second Amendment Protects the First.’’ “What we are facing now is an assault weapons ban, but if they do this, what will do they do next?’’ Thompson asked.
