Cranbrook breeds a champion Siberian Husky “Kuvuk’s First Choice” wins big at U.S. National Specialty in Utah; another victory for local breeder Margie Leopold S A LLY MAC D ON AL D Townsman Staff

“Kuvuk’s First Choice”, a Siberian Husky known to his friends as Nash, is turning heads across the continent, and he has already set up dates with two lucky lady dogs. He turned two on Tuesday, and Nash is ready to take the world by storm after placing fourth in the Bred By Exhibitor class at the Siberian Husky Club of America’s National Specialty on October 2 to 6, 2012 in Provo, Utah. “I took the chance of taking him down there and showing him. There is only one to four placing in that class. We got fourth which is huge recognition for me as a breeder from Canada. It gave the dog a lot of recognition,” said Nash’s owner, Margie Leopold, who has six Siberian Huskies and also owns and operates Pretty Pooch in Cranbrook. The National Specialty is a prestigious

dog competition where the best Siberian Huskies from all over the world are shown, Leopold said. “Dogs come from all over the United States. There were four or five dogs from Canada, there was some dogs flown in from Lithuania, Italy...” The judges are breeders themselves, making Nash’s placing even more satisfying. “It is quite a compliment as many have told me they would take him home and use him in their breeding program,” said Leopold. To be ready for competition, Nash needs to look his best, so Leopold grooms him every day. When deciding who to give awards to, the judges look at the dog’s height and length, how it moves, and if they have correct movement. “It helps if they are pretty,” said Leopold. “I have been told by judges he has a beautiful head and eye.”

DO NOT ADJUST YOUR HEADSET: Gerry Frederick of Cranbrook got a picture of this roadside attraction east of town, perhaps thinking about the good taste of road salt, or the advent of head-butting season, still many months ahead. We suppose that if the sheep really had an urge to butt heads, they wouldn’t wait around until rutting season. In the meantime, happy trails, Rambo.


Council ponders more outdoor rinks SALLY MACDONALD Townsman Staff

Could Cranbrook have three outdoor skating rinks next winter? Possibly, according to Cranbrook council — if community groups come forward to maintain them. The city is currently

working on two requests for outdoor rinks – one in Slaterville and one in Gyro Park. “We certainly won’t address those requests this year, but perhaps in years going forward through council and the budgeting process, we

would determine whether we have the opportunity to add one or two more to the one already in Baker Park,” said Wayne Staudt, Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Cranbrook.

As far back as 1901, there are accounts of an open air skating rink in Cranbrook. A Dec. 5, 1918, article in the Cranbrook Herald promoted the rink as a “barricade” to the “flu germ or any other enemy of robust health”.

New lingerie store, La Vie En Rose, opens Friday S a l ly M acD o n a l d Townsman Staff

Cranbrook may have lost La Senza last year, but we have gained a new lingerie store. La Vie en Rose will open an outlet store near Walmart on Friday, January 25. The complex, known as Cranbrook SmartCentre, was a good fit for the brand, said La Vie en Rose president and CEO François Roberge. “We had a fantastic

opportunity to open at Cranbrook SmartCentre and felt it was the right place to expand our presence in British Columbia’s market place.” The new Cranbrook store will sell La Vie en Rose lingerie collections, swimwear collections, the affordable LVER lingerie line designed specifically for its outlet stores, La Vie en Rose MAN underwear collections, as well as clearance items. It

will offer clients a “onestop-shop” in one vast, 3,250 square foot space. This will be La Vie en Rose’s twenty-first store in B.C. The specialty lingerie retailer began in 1996 and now consists of 155 boutiques across Canada and 55 overseas, including stores in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Egypt, Kuwait, Algeria and Kazakhstan. The brand caters to women aged 25 to 45.

Nash turning heads Continued from page 1 The judges aren’t the only ones to take a fancy to our Nash. Two Husky breeders approached Leopold after the specialty, seeking a chance to breed Nash with their own dogs. “I have two breedings planned for people who contacted me after the national. One lady lives in Vancouver, and one lives in California, so we are shipping him there probably in May to breed to her dog,” said Leopold. At two, Nash is already a dad, from “an early breeding that I didn’t really want to happen,” said Leopold. His daughter, “Kuvuk’s World Peace”, or Metta, is just seven months old and already an award-winner like her father. This past weekend, she was given two points in the female class at the Alberta Ken-

of Love Owie Korony”, was bred in Poland and now lives in Texas. “I was able to bring him to Cranbrook and he lived with me for six months,” said Leopold. “When he was here I showed (him) in Canada and got his Canadian championship.”

However, Coun. Denise Pallesen said outdoor rinks are not cheap. “I’m not sure we can afford to put two more in,” she said. “It would be quite expensive to set up and maintain, because as it is now on Baker Park, the crews can only maintain it when they are available. They don’t have set times to do that.” But that’s not to say council shouldn’t consider it, she went on. “I’m not saying we shouldn’t do it or we shouldn’t encourage the community to do it,” said Coun. Pallesen. “If we can get somebody to adopt it or get a couple of groups to do it, I’m all for that.”

Kuvuk’s First Choice: aka Nash nel Club Winter Classic in Calgary. Five of Leopold’s six Huskies are Canadian champions, including Nash. One, “Playmor’s She’s All That”, or Bliss, is an American champion who was placed 10th in the U.S. last year. “We are on a good winning streak,” said Leopold. Leopold and her

puppy brood live at Jimsmith Lake, where there is lots of room for the dogs to run around. “I’ve started them all in harness this year so four of them are pulling a sled,” said Leopold. Nash’s mom is “Playmor’s A Thousand Cheers”, who Leopold bought from a wellknown breeder in the U.S. Nash’s dad, “Ocean

Coun. Bob Whetham agreed that might be the way to go. “It provides the opportunity for neighbourhoods that are

quite active to take advantage of something without incurring big expenses for the city. That may be the kind of idea we could explore.”

Correction There was a slight error in the article “Sea can ban has no fans”, which ran in the Wednesday, January 23 issue of the Townsman. The public hearing was for Zoning Amendment Bylaw 3762, which will amend Zoning Bylaw 3737.

Wildsight’s One Planet Film Series will wrap up the season with two screenings of ‘Surviving Progress’ on January 31st and February 1st. Dan Moe, Wildsight Kimberley/Cranbrook Director said the film is based on Ronald Wright’s Massey Lectures he gave across Canada a few years ago. “This is a big picture film that looks at environmental impacts of our current civilization and the impact of concentrating wealth in the hands of a few.” Moe will introduce the film in Kimberley while Councillor Sharon Cross will give the introduction in Cranbrook. “Surviving Progress” presents the story of human advancement as both awe-inspiring and double-edged. It reveals the risk of running the 21st century’s software on the ancient hardware of our primate brain. Filmmakers Mathieu Roy and Harold Crooks launch us on a journey to contemplate our evolution from cave-dwellers to space explorers. “Surviving Progress”will show in Cranbrook at the College of the Rockies in the Lecture Theatre on Jan. 31, and in Kimberley at Centre 64 on Feb. 1.

second positive side effect: smokers who can’t smoke everywhere they go will feel less inclined to do so. “We know that smoke-free outdoor places increase the motivation for smokers to quit or cut back,” Kaminsky said. That will in turn help youth again, as evidence suggests most smokers begin before they are 18 years old. “Eliminating smoking in public places creates healthy role modelling so youth are less likely to even consider taking up the habit,” Kaminsky said. The Canadian Cancer Society reports that B.C. has the lowest smoking rate in the country at 14 per cent. The province recently finished up year-one of its Smoking Cessation Program, which saw 150,000 orders for nicotine replacement therapy. “We believe the government has made great strides to helping reduce smoking rates in our province but we need to do even more,” Kaminsky said. “Protecting British Columbians from the harmful effects of second-hand smoke outdoors and from exposure to smoking behaviours needs to be a top priority for all politicians.”

Variety Club annual fundraising event takes place 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.


For the Canadian Cancer Society, National Non-smoking Week means a call to action to see smoking in outdoor public places limited. The BC and Yukon Division of the society is calling on the provincial government to extend the ban on smoking in outdoor places like patios of bars and restaurants, beaches, parks and playgrounds. “During National Non-Smoking Week, we are urging policymakers to do one thing to enhance tobacco control and help prevent cancer – expand regulations around smoke-free public places,” said Barbara Kaminsky, CEO, Canadian Cancer Soci-

ety, BC and Yukon. The society is urging lawmakers in the province to step up and follow the lead of four other provinces and ban smoking in public places. Already in B.C., 30 municipalities have taken steps to create bans in their own town limits. Second hand smoke is known to cause cancer, with 140 deaths a year in B.C. being linked to exposure to tobacco smoke. The U.S. Surgeon General and World Health Organization have determined there is no safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke. The Canadian Cancer Society is not alone in its quest to see the bans extended province-wide. They formed the Clean Air Coalition BC with the BC Lung Association and Heart and Stroke Foundation. Kaminsky said a ban should be put in place to protect children using public spaces, which is supported by several entities. “There is no safe level of exposure to second-hand smoke, a fact supported by the U.S. Surgeon General and Medical Health Officers’ Council of BC. Children, teens and adults should be protected when they play outdoors,” she said. A ban would have a

I’d raised my glass to cheers my sister, my best friend, in a dimly lit restaurant, and then walked slowly through the dark streets of London home to Whitechapel. We felt like we had just spent the evening in 1907, when the Queen’s Theatre first opened its doors. Our experience was like reading the book first.

Emma, alone on the mountain What’s Up? We are now in the mountains and they are in us.” John Muir


mma stood with the camera in her hands and watched the borrowed back-pack sail over the precipice and disappear from sight. She stood there stunned by the enormity of the event then, in frustration, seriously considered tossing the camera after it. She looked up into the cloud-dotted sky as, overhead, ravens, so-called symbols of the void, circled endlessly. Emma snorted; nonsense! Knowing her luck, they were probably vultures waiting for her next stupid action, and for her to die. She was on a minor peak in the Rockies, a mountain that Ralph, after he had taken her up there the first time, had always called The Knob, and, because of this fact, she had come dutifully to scatter his ashes to the stiff breeze blowing on top. She shivered and hugged herself. Emma had come to scatter her onetime husband’s ashes up there in the mountains because his mother had pleaded with her to do so, and she hadn’t enjoyed the concept. It wasn’t her idea. It all seemed to her to be so ridiculous. Ralph was no longer in existence; his ashes meant nothing to her, just nuisances to be rid of. Anyway, they’d just disappeared into the void un-scattered. She wondered if that

mattered. Mrs Hobbs, Ralph’s mother had phoned Emma at her new residence in Lethbridge to inform her that her husband Ralph was dead. Emma had hesitated. She’d not felt married to Ralph since the miscarriage and the drifting apart but Mrs Hobbs had always been optimistic that her wayward daughter-in-law would come back into the fold. It took Ralph’s death to do so. At the news of her ex-husband’s demise, Emma had immediately assumed that he’d had an Peter accident on one of his Warland madcap mountaineering escapades, but it had been a sudden heart attack and Emma had been co-opted into hauling the ashes to the top of The Knob. And now she’d lost them plus her jacket, her wind-proof pants, her woolly toque and her lunch. She hugged herself and shivered in her inadequate T-shirt and little shorts as the breeze grew stronger and clouds galloped across the sky. The funeral had been a farce. Emma had no idea what Ralph’s mom had told the vicar, but his description of the dear departed had been nothing like the man Emma had known. Prolonged rough camping in remote places is supposed to enable a future couple to assess the probability of enduring a future partner’s quirks and foibles but, in the case of Ralph and Emma, it never did.

The pack had slipped from where she’d left it so carelessly and gone over a cliff on the wrong side of the mountain so Emma realized that she’d have to get down without it and the warm contents. Clutching the useless camera in one hand, she set off back the way she had come as clouds filled the sky and a few snow-flakes fluttered down. She could sense the goose-bumps gathering on her body. Half-way down the mountain, as Emma had sheltered a while in the lea of some large spruce trees, a coyote had ambled by. The coyote was also supposed to be a symbol of bad luck, but Emma was unimpressed. If she had an accident or froze to death on the mountain, it would be because of her own stupidity and carelessness. As far as Emma was concerned, nature had no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, in fact, nothing but pitiless indifference. She’d heaved herself to her feet and hurried on down into the forest as a full blizzard arrived in her part of the mountains. It was almost dark when Emma finally reached her car at the trail head. She climbed wearily into the driver’s seat, started the motor, cranked up the heat then found tears running down her face. She had no idea why but she knew that she was going to be forced to lie like the blazes to Ralph’ mom about her day on The Knob and how she’d felt about it. Peter Warland is a Cranbrook writer

The referendum would not take

place until after the next election, and only if the Conservatives won enough seats in 2015 to form a government on its own. (Its current coalition partner, the Liberal Democratic Party, opposes the whole idea.) Cameron says he will spend the next two years renegotiating the terms of Britain’s EU membership to “repatriate” many powers from Brussels to London, and to make various changes in the way the EU is run. Then, if he is satisfied with the outcome, he will support EU membership in the election and in the subsequent referendum, which will be held by 2017. But he had no satisfactory answer to the hard questions that followed his speech. What if the 26 other EU members choose not to waste months in talks on changing Britain’s relationship with the EU? What if they do negotiate but refuse to tie themselves up in knots just to ease Cameron’s local political problems? Would he support continued EU membership in the promised referendum if he didn’t have a “new deal” to offer the voters. He simply wouldn’t answer those questions. So for the next four years, all those foreign companies that have been using the UK as a convenient, English-speaking centre to produce goods and services for the European market will be re-thinking their investment strategies. If the UK may leave the EU by 2017, is this really the right place to put their money? It will probably be a long dry season for the British economy. How did an allegedly grown-up country talk itself into this position? It’s an attitude that was summed up in an apocryphal English newspaper headline of the 1930s: “Fog in (the English) Channel; Continent Cut Off.” Gwynne Dyer is a London-based independent journalist.

Ice stay hot with 3-2 win over Medicine Hat Tigers TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

Kootenay may be known as the Ice, but they are red hot right now. The Cranbrook WHL-based club extended it’s win streak to five by downing the Medicine Hat Tigers 3-2 at Western Financial Place on Wednesday night. Brock Montgomery scored a pair of goals, while Jaedon Descheneau and Sam Reinhart extended their point streak to 11 games in the assists column.

“It’s nice to see the streak continue, but the main thing is we got the win and the two points and we’re closer to the playoffs now.” Jaedon Descheneau Reinhart, who had been listed day-to-day with a lower body injury, didn’t miss the game and notched two assists, while Descheneau was in on all three goals. “It’s nice to see the streak continue,” said Descheneau, “but the main thing is we got the win and the two points and we’re closer to the playoffs now.” Luke Philp broke a 2-2 tie in the third period to lift Kootenay to the win, while Hunter Shinkaruk and Dylan Bredo had the goals for Medicine Hat. Kootenay’s record of

12 wins in 13 games has rocketed them out of the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings and into playoff contention, as they sit four points behind the Tigers in ninth place. Montgomery said games against division rivals are four-point affairs, because the winner takes two for the win, while the loser doesn’t get a chance to make those two points back. “It’s huge,” said Montgomery, of the win. “Obviously, they’re a team we’re trying to catch and when we play these kinds of teams, it’s a four-point night.” “…We can’t afford to give any points away and I think every guy in the room knows that and that’s how we’ve been playing lately.” Special teams was the deciding factor, as both Montgomery’s goals came on the powerplay, while Kootenay’s penalty kill shut down an important two-man advantage in the final frame and only allowed one goal with a man in the box. “They like to be on the powerplay and they’re good on the powerplay,” said Montgomery, “but we did a good job of shutting them down and we managed to put the puck in the net on some great plays from Sam and Desch, so it was a huge special teams game.” Ice stopper Mackenzie Skapski was solid in net, turning away 26 shots while Cam Lani-

Medicine Hat got the better start, applying some consistent pressure and getting rewarded at the end of the frame on a powerplay goal from Hunter Shinkaruk. The Tigers’ sniper got the jump on an Ice defenceman as he entered the zone, received a pass from Miles Koules and banged in a shot for the lead. Kootenay’s best chance came from the offensive zone face-off

circle, when Reinhart ripped a shot off a feed from Jaedon Descheneau. Medicine Hat had a scare late in the period, after Austin Vetterl checked Jacob Doty from behind into the boards, but the Tigers’ forward got back up and stayed in the game. Doty got physical himself in the following frame, levelling Tanner Faith in the corner, and dropped the gloves with Joey Leach, who went in to dispense pugilistic justice.

Faith looked dazed and was slow to get up, needing help from trainer Cory Cameron, who took the 17-yearold defenceman to the dressing room. Ice assistant coach Chad Kletzel said after the game that Faith will be day-to-day. Doty took a charging minor on the play, and the Ice responded on the scoreboard, when Montgomery finished on a passing play between Reinhart and Descheneau. The Tigers regained

the lead when Dylan Bredo picked up a fat rebound at the side of the net and converted just before the halfway mark. However, with 10 seconds to go in the middle period, Montgomery found the back of the net again on another powerplay, tapping in a cross crease pass from Reinhart to pull things even. The Tigers had a chance to break the game open in the third period with a two-man advantage for 46 sec-

onds, but the Ice were able to shut it down. Later, as the Tigers were attempting to break out of their zone, Luke Philp stole the puck at the blue line and dished it off to Kyle O’Conner. The 16-yearold put a shot on net and Philp put the rebound into a gaping net with 6:08 to go. Despite the advantage of two extra players from a powerplay and pulled goaltender, the Tigers couldn’t find the equalizer in a tense finish to the game.

Prince George Cougars hire former Ice coach TRE VOR CR AWLEY Sports Editor

A day after firing head coach Dean Clark, the Prince George Cougars have hired a familiar face to Kootenay Ice fans to pick up the reins. Mark Holick, who ran the Kootenay bench from 2007-10, has been named the 10th head coach of the Cougars franchise, announced Cougars general manager Dallas Thompson on Wednesday.

“We’re extremely excited to name Mark our head coach,” said Thompson in a press release. “He brings with him an excellent winning record, pro experience and will bring an exciting new approach to our players and fans.” Holick recently served as head coach of the Syracuse Crunch in the AHL, a position he took after leaving the Kootenay Ice, but was relegated to an associate coach

when the Anaheim Ducks, their parent organization, did a coaching shakeup a year ago. “I’m really excited to get going,” said Holick. “I’m happy to be back in the Western Hockey League and my family and I are looking forward to being a part of the community in Prince George.” The Kootenay Ice made the playoffs in all three of Holick’s seasons with the club, accumu-

lating a record of 120-750-21. In 2009-10, Holick was awarded the honour of CHL coach of the year. “We’re going to command a work ethic, commitment and pride in being part of an organization in the Western Hockey League,” said Holick. “We want to be the hardest working team on the ice and when you do that, you win more than you lose.” Prior to coaching at the major-junior and

professional level, Holick lead four different teams in the BCHL and one team in the AJHL for 11 years. Holick also had a brief stint playing professional hockey for four seasons in the AHL, ECHL and CHL, appearing in 142 games and tallying 73 points. Holick was selected by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 11th round of the 1986 NHL Entry Draft.

B.C. Lions shopping Geroy Simon to gauge CFL trade interest Dan R alph Canadian Press

He has long been the face of the B.C. Lions and last year became the CFL’s all-time receiving yards leader. But all-star slotback Geroy Simon could be chasing the league’s receptions record with a different team. Lions GM Wally Buono said Wednesday he has given Simon permission to gauge interest in a potential trade that, if consummated, would see the 37-yearold finish his illustrious CFL career elsewhere. “I have given Geroy’s party the ability to investigate what’s out there because sometimes a team is willing to be a little bit more open to a player,” Buono said. “We’re trying to resolve a situation with a player that’s been a very very good player not only on the field but also in the community . . . out of respect to Geroy, we’re trying to accommodate him.” Simon’s future in B.C. has been a huge question this off-season. Simon has spent 12 of his 14 CFL seasons with the Lions and last year surpassed Milt Stegall as the league leader in alltime receiving yards

(15,787). But hamstring injuries forced Simon to miss five games in 2012, limiting him to 54 catches for 700 yards and two TDs. It marked the first time in 10 seasons Simon hadn’t cracked the 1,000-yard plateau. The six-foot, 198pound native of Johnstown, Pa., needs just 29 catches to break Ben Cahoon’s CFL-record 1,017 career receptions.

“Obviously, I’m a B.C. Lion and plan on being a B.C. Lion and that won’t change until they tell me otherwise.” Geroy Simon Neither Simon nor his agent, Vancouver-based Dan Vertlieb, were immediately available for comment. Once the Lions’ season ended, Simon did say he was open to restructuring his contract, but if the CFL club didn’t want him back he’d look to continue playing elsewhere. “Obviously, I’m a B.C. Lion and plan on being a B.C. Lion, and that won’t change until they tell me otherwise,” Simon said


at the time. Buono would like Simon back so long as the former Maryland star was content with a restructured deal and possibly a reduced role in the offence. “I understand all this, which is why I’m not annoyed or angered by it,” Buono said. “We’re trying to resolve this and if we can, great, because I think it’s an advantage to everybody to resolve it but what I’m saying today is the status quo cannot be. “In fairness to any veteran player, their time comes and the question is when is that time? Our job, unfortunately, is to look into the crystal ball, make a decision not based on what you know but what you’re observing.” Simon began his career in Canada with Winnipeg in 1999 before signing with B.C. as a free agent in following the 2000 season. Since joining the Lions, Simon has been named a league all-star six times, won two Grey Cups and in 2006 received the CFL’s outstanding player award after registering 105 catches for 1,856 yards and 15 TDs, all career highs. But B.C. was 5-0 with-

VANCOUVER - Cory Schneider redeemed himself in a big way Wednesday night. Schneider posted 34 saves in regulation time and made a decisive shootout stop as the Vancouver Canucks edged the Calgary Flames 3-2. “It was extremely important (to get the win),” said Schneider. “I had to have a bounce-back game. I had to show myself and my teammates that first game was a fluke and I felt better as it went on. “It didn’t happen right away - but when it counted, it felt good.” The Canucks (1-1-1) posted their first win of the lockout-shortened season. The Flames (0-21) remained winless after three games. Schneider gave Vancouver the

shootout win after they lost to Edmonton in one on Sunday with Roberto Luongo, who was displaced as Vancouver’s starter in last spring’s playoffs, between the pipes while Schneider watched from the bench. Zack Kassian paced the Canucks offensively with the shootout winner and another goal in regulation. “(The shootout winner) is definitely nice, but I think it’s even nicer to finally get in the win column,” said Kassian, who turns 22 on Thursday. “Both teams desperately wanted a win.” Mason Raymond chipped in with a goal for Vancouver in regulation. Alex Tanguay scored in regulation and had one in the shootout for Calgary while Mikael Backlund also scored for the Flames.

49ers QB Kaepernick could have tried his right arm in MLB Janie McC auley Associated Press

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Chicago Cubs scout Sam Hughes watches Colin Kaepernick nowadays and still wonders what the strong-armed NFL quarterback might look like on a pitching mound, as a power arm in the pros. It’s hard not to, seeing the zip and accuracy on each throw, the competitive fire and focus. The Cubs never even watched Kaepernick throw a baseball before drafting him in the 43rd round almost four years ago. They did watch him throw a football for Nevada, and decided that college game told them more than enough. Ultimately, the Cubs just couldn’t lure Kaepernick away from his first love: football. Now, he’s headed to the Super Bowl to lead the 49ers against Baltimore on Feb. 3. Hughes, the longtime national cross-checker in the

Cubs’ scouting department, and several others, including then-general manager Jim Hendry, figured they should give it a shot and hope Kaepernick might reconsider. Hughes tried for two weeks to convince Kaepernick, who had made it all but clear he would not sign. He was surprised anybody drafted him at all given he had been so upfront about sticking with football. But Chicago’s NFL sources - Hughes said three different teams figured Kaepernick would be a late-round pick or even someone who might have to go the route of the Canadian Football League. That seems so laughable now. The Niners picked Kaepernick in the second round of the 2011 draft, made him the starter midseason this year and now will ask him to carry them all the way to the franchise’s sixth championship in what will be just his 10th career NFL start.

“I was looking at this tall, kind of gangly at the time quarterback that was super athletic and had this really long throwing motion,” Hughes said. “I was talking to some of my buddies at Reno and said, ‘Boy, I wonder if this kid’s ever played baseball, he’s got an arm stroke like a pitcher.”’ That sent Hughes on a research project. Kaepernick regularly threw 90 mph in high school, but was now some 40 pounds heavier as a college football player. He certainly would throw harder. “So, I was definitely intrigued, bigger, stronger, more athletic,” Hughes said. “Colin had no idea we were even considering drafting him. I kind of caught him off guard when I called him after we drafted him. He kind of got a kick out of it and said his phone was ringing off the hook that he’d been drafted by the Cubs. He had no idea.”

Then-Nevada coach Chris Ault had the challenge of developing Kaepernick’s football motion - and that wasn’t an easy task with the QB having been a pitcher. “His first two years he was a thrower from his pitching days. It was all sidearm,” Ault said. “That was a habit we had to break. You could see his throwing motion, timing and touch was there. His senior year I saw the whole package. He was a guy

ready for the NFL who could do all things they’d like him to do plus run. Now I look at him with the Niners and Jim and those guys are doing a super job. He has all the throws.

Beachside adventure in Los Cabos, Mexico Uniglobe Travel’s Corinne Kennedy takes us on a tour of this stunning region on Mexico’s Baja California peninsula


dventure, relaxation, pampering and fun are all wrapped up in one destination. Los Cabos, Mexico, offers all that and more. Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, the major cities in the Los Cabos region, are located on the tip of the Baja California peninsula on the west coast of Mexico. Unlike mainland Mexico with its tropical climate, Cabo is where the desert meets the sea. The sunny weather and low humidity make it a very comfortable destination. Cabo San Lucas is a lively town with plenty of shopping, excellent restaurants and a bustling night life. Cabo San Lucas is known as a sport fishing destination with world class fishing in amazing

waters. Jacques Cousteau nicknamed the Sea of Cortez “The World’s Aquarium” for its abundance of different species of fish. It boasts over 850 identified species and at least 80 local and migratory fish that are the focus of sport fishing. Many refer to Cabo San Lucas as the Marlin Capital of the World, as there are more marlin caught and released here than anywhere else in the world. Cabo is an ideal vacation destination for nature lovers. Wildlife guides can lead you on a marine excursion to see amazing gray whales in their natural environment. Every winter, these massive mammals migrate from Alaska to the Bays along the Mexican Pacific and the Sea of Cortez.

There is also a chance you may see humpback whales, sea lions, spinner dolphins, bottlenose and spotted dolphins. San Jose Del Cabo is old Mexico in the historic heart of Los Cabos. It is a quaint, smaller town offering shopping and incredible restaurants. It is a great place to walk and visit away from the hustle and bustle of Cabo. Non-stop flights are available from Calgary and Vancouver. Connecting flights are also available from Spokane. You can choose from an array of accommodation that will suit every preference. There is everything from luxury properties, all-inclusive resorts to condominiums. You’ll love every minute you spend in Los Cabos, whether

10 ways travelling will do your body good Postmedia Ne ws

Here, courtesy of author Dr. Mel Borins and are 10 great reasons to get away right now. 1. You will live longer Research shows both homemakers and employed women who took fewer vacations had a significant increase of heart attacks. Men who never take vacations were 21 per cent more likely to die over the next nine years and 32 per cent more likely to die of coronary heart disease. 2. Set some life goals Being away on a holiday is an excellent time to collect your thoughts and take a fresh look at your life. The idea of setting goals will help you work toward the positive changes you want to make. 3. Increased life satisfaction Even though you have a stack of bills and email and phone messages after you get back from a vacation, usually you come back with new enthusiasm and a more positive attitude. 4. The world is our classroom Every travel experience can be used to teach our children about the world and about themselves. 5. Reconnect as a family There is no better way to connect with your significant other, spouse or

children than spending full days with them. Family members usually feel much closer after a holiday. 6. Stimulate your brain cells Research found that there was a direct correlation between more stressful life events and a decline in intellectual functioning. However there was a positive relationship between vacations and intellectual functioning. 7. Short breaks help with stress If your job has been too overwhelming, your relationships too demanding, or your lifestyle unhealthy, getting away can be a tremendous relief. 8. Long vacations decrease burnout Studies show that if you go away for 10 days or more the symptoms of burnout take longer to come back once you return. 9. Examine your state of health Being away is an ideal time for a health check. You have more uncluttered, uninterrupted free time to identify problem areas before you return to the hectic pace of home. 10. Refocus your self-image Our jobs, nationality and religious beliefs can overwhelm who we are. When you strip yourself of all social labels you get back to the essence of you.

you’re walking the beautiful beaches, big game fishing, golfing some of the world’s best championship courses, kayaking in a quiet cove or dancing till dawn. There is something for everyone. For more information, contact Uniglobe Travel at 24 – 10th Ave. S. in Cranbrook or phone 250-426-8975.

What Parents Need to Know British Columbia Teachers’ Federation 100–550 West 6th Avenue, Vancouver, BC V5Z 4P2

Dear Parents, The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) is a set of annual provincial tests given to Grade 4 and 7 students in reading comprehension, writing, and numeracy. These tests do not count toward your child’s marks nor do the results actively support your child’s learning. • FSA tests are expensive to develop and administer. • FSA tests do not help students learn, or teachers teach. • FSA tests take valuable time away from richer and more meaningful learning.

• FSA tests take valuable resources away from the classroom. • Results are misused to rank schools and promote privatization. • FSA data does not provide real help to students, parents, or schools.

For all of these reasons, we are recommending that you write a letter to the principal or detach the following letter, requesting that your child be exempted from the FSA. We cannot in all good conscience recommend that any parent support the administration of the FSA to their child. Continue to talk with teachers about assessment that works for your child. Sincerely,

Susan Lambert President

Please detach and use the letter to request that your Grade 4 or 7 child be withdrawn from the January and February 2013 FSA testing.

Dear Principal, I understand that parents may request the principal to excuse a student in the event of a family emergency, lengthy illness, or other extenuating circumstances. Please excuse my child, __________________________________________________________________ , from all three Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) tests for the following reason: family emergency

lengthy illness

other extenuating circumstances

Thank you for your co-operation. Sincerely,

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Comedy, tragedy, winners, losers and ‘Merchant of Venice’



Bard in Your Own Backyard’s production looks at the basic engine of society: Belonging to the in-crowd “The Merchant of Venice,” which opens Thursday, Jan. 24 (tonight) at the Key City Theatre, begins with comedy, ends with comedy, and presents full-on, often slapstick comedy throughout. And yet, through its history, theatregoers have left it with a troubled, uncomfortable feeling, to accompany the joy that the hilarious and successful pursuit of love leaves us with. Shakespeare, in revolutionary fashion, has taken a rich, complex comedy of love — the beautiful and gracious Portia beset by suitors — and shot a tragic line through it like a rogue artery — the story of Shylock the Jew, who lends money to a man who represents the society that hates him. The two storylines are interconnected, and come together at the play’s climax, leading to a memorable encounter between the two main characters, Portia and Shylock. “The Merchant of Venice” is the latest production of the local Shakespeare society Bard in Your Own Backyard. It is directed by Dean Nicholson, who also plays the role of Shylock, one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters. Although “Merchant” contains some of Shakespeare’s most romantic comic moments, there is an undercurrent, running throughout, of deep cynical fatalism. Elizabethan England was a youthful demographic, with its own generation gap, as it came to be known. It was also unusually xenophobic and parochial, with a rigid class system. A person adrift from his or her “incrowd,” was generally a person in trouble. To belong — whether at court, in a village, in a guild, or even with Christopher Marlowe’s mob of playwrights — was everything. And to

not belong, that was the end of things. Director Nicholson has brought this dramatic theme to the fore. “This production focuses less on the religious concerns, and more on the ease with which people create divisions between people, whether based on age, status, wealth or gender,” Nicholson said. Nicholson has also incorporated the use of modern techology and communications systems into the play. “The use of modern techology in an Elizabethan setting underscores one such division between the technologically savvy young and the older generation who risk becoming out of touch, and are only seen as a source of money.” Modern techology in an Elizabethan setting, it can also be said, can be used to great comic effect. The outsider is the underdog, a favourite figure to most, especially in literature. But Shakespeare knew the truth of the matter —

that society prefers a winner, and seldom rewards underdogs. The young, the beautiful, the wealthy come out on top, the outsiders, the poor, the aliens do not. You can see that Shakespeare, far from writing a 16th century anti-Semitic piece — or alternatively, a play showing the intolerance of a Christian mob — has created a thought-provoking, realistic comment on the behaviour of society, a spiderweb of interpersonal complications, which would be recognizable at any high school, but is the pattern upon which all society operates. Thus Jessica (Danielle Nicholson), the Jew’s daughter who has deserted him, takes up with the handsome and popular Lorenzo (Graham McBean), rather than the poor servant Launcelot (Jeff Cooper), who also loves her. Bassanio (Jerrod Bondy) persuades Antonio (David Prinn), his older friend and admirer, to borrow money to help him pursue the beauti-


Bassanio (Jerrod Bondy, right) entreats with Shylock the moneylender (Dean Nicholson) to make a loan to Bassanio’s friend Antonio, so that he, Bassanio, can go courting. This will result in a whole mess of trouble for both Antonio and Shylock, in “The Merchant of Venice.”

ful Portia (Kimberly Davidson). This will cause immense trouble for Antonio, but any court of law will ultimately favour an upstanding member of the bourgeoisie over any alien, any minority group.

James Perry is a bearded-out man on a weirded-out mission of musical mercy. Performing under his pseudonym Bocephus King since 1996, Perry has taken his country-blues take on modern folkrock across North America and back countless times, and has captured his soulful and colourful songs for posterity on critically-acclaimed independent albums such as Joco Music, A Small Good Thing, the Blue Sickness, and All Children Believe in Heaven. And now, in support of his latest album (somewhat startlingly titled Willie Dixon God Damn!), Perry/King has shoved himself and his uber-talented bandmates once again into the universal Tour Van and is shaking rafters in roadhouses across the True North, Strong and Free. “The tour has been incredible,” remarks Perry: “Beautiful voodoo from a great band. It’s a marshmallow world in the winter, as Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin once sang. Slow and steady, with occasional bouts of absolute madness... that’s how you handle the oftentime toughness of touring Canada during the snowy season. Hot springs certainly help, too. Every night is like Christmas morning. Our show at Mikey’s Juke Joint in Calgary had some real Third-Eye-HolyGhost moments that left everybody vibrating... like chanting monks on magic mushrooms.” Bocephus King has long been recognized as one of the leading lights in Vancouver’s considerably-talented folkrock community, receiving favourable reviews in No Depression magazine and other high-profile international publications. As of late, the live-music world of the West Coast has seen a dramatic and unsettling shift for possibly the worse, what with venues such as East Vancouver’s fabled Waldorf Hotel currently threatened with gentrification extermination as culturally-ignorant property developers continue to raze former downtown landmarks like Richard’s on Richards in order to build yet an-

When asked how he (and other Vancouver musicians) copes with anti-arts pressure, Perry merely says: “I remember that this whole life is an illusion, and try not to let it get me down. Sometimes I smoke a joint and stretch in the sauna.” And which Vancouver artists does he feel kinship with? “Too many to mention... but I’ll say I’m travelling with some of them,” he smiles. Although Monday night’s upcoming performance at the Byng Roadhouse marks his first performance in Cranbrook, Bocephus King is no stranger to the Kootenays. “We’ve been coming to the Koots for years,” Perry beams. “Many dear Vancouver friends moved here years ago, and they’ve helped the path stay beaten. The Koots are always

Ocean, if you will, but he did all of that at a time when driving around with a bunch of black musicians and touring the Southern United States was seriously taking your life in your hands. A crazy, dangerous, wild, wonderful life that left a trail of Gospel human truths you could move your ass to. When I say ‘Willie Dixon, God Damn!’, I’m saying Hallelujah, Amen... but I’m saying it to the Holy Church Of The Road, and all the modern Saints. They did so much in such a dark time and place. It’s hopeful to me in these strange and somewhat savage times.” Bocephus King hit the tenderly-broken-in stage at the legendary Byng Roadhouse (21 Cranbrook St. N.) on Monday, January 28, with guests The Bison Brothers and The Pine Slacks.

some kind of grand adventure.” Monday’s Grand Adventure for Bocephus King will also feature opening-support sets from the Bison Brothers (featuring renowned local roots-rock songwriter Tim Ross) and the Pine Slacks (vocalist-guitarist Connor Foote, bassist Stu Driedger, and guitarist Clayton Parsons). Perry’s boozy poetics swerve all over the beatnik-rocker highway, and there’s got to be a reason for the unusual title of his latest album, right? Right: “Willie Dixon wrote and created some of the biggest bricks in the temple of modern music,” Perry boasts. “Most people don’t understand how much he has to do with what we hear in these times. How it came to be. These single souls who brought together so much. Willie Dixon is one of these great sources, an

There are patterns within patterns, too: Antonio, for example, yearns to run with the young crowd, with his friend Bassanio, but in the end he too will be outside looking in. The worst rejection, of course, is reserved for the one farthest

from any in-crowds — Shylock, the Jew, the moneylender, the alien. His rage, justifiable as it may be, leads to his unwillingness to waver from his pursuit of his revenge, his pound of flesh. This, of course, is a perfect recipe for tragedy.

So Shylock dares disrupt our comedy, our pursuit of multiple marriages to close out our joyful consequence? He shall be punished. “The Merchant of Venice,” directed by Dean Nicholson and produced by Susan Hanson, opens Thursday, Jan. 24, and runs

Annie’s Mailbox by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar Dear Annie: After 44 years of marriage, I can no longer trust my husband. “Steve” reconnected with a high school flame, and the end result was late-night emails, texts and calls. He even bought throwaway phones so they could stay in touch and meet out of town. We went for counseling, and Steve took a stack of note cards to the first session with ultimatums for me. He accused me of being a lesbian and having affairs with women at work and in our neighborhood. He then shared the intimate details of our sessions with his old flame and invited her to come along! He wrote long multiple-page letters and slipped them to my therapist when he thought I wasn’t watching. Recently, Steve spent $12,000 of our money on a facelift, and he has set up at least 10 email accounts to hide things from me. He finally promised to cut off communication with this woman unless it was about the upcoming high school reunion. We began to put things back together, and then he again initiated intimate contact with her and went to our high school reunion without me. Is there any hope of trusting this man again? Or at age 64, am I looking at moving on? -- The Faithful Wife Dear Faithful: Steve seems to be going through a major midlife crisis. The old flame makes him feel as if he’s a teenager again. And the facelift was intended to make him look like one. Will he ever return to Earth? There are no guarantees. Please don’t plan your life around what Steve may or may not do in the future. Get some counseling on your own, see a lawyer about protecting yourself, and figure out whether you are better off with or without him right now. Dear Annie: I live in a small community where many people volunteer for countless jobs, giving of their time and talents. I have a friend who is becoming increasingly critical of everyone’s efforts, and it is depressing to be in her company. How do I tell her that we are tired of her constant complaining while still remaining her friend? I’m taking out my hearing aids at our next encounter. -- Florida Dear Florida: Some people, as they age, turn into chronic complainers. Sometimes there are medical reasons, but often, it’s simply how they are. You could nicely mention to your friend that she seems terribly unhappy because nothing pleases her these days, and then suggest she see her doctor for a thorough checkup. We hope it helps. Dear Annie: “Worried Grandma” was concerned about her granddaughter, “Kelly,” who had difficulty modulating her voice and felt that men were turned off by her loud personality. Please tell her to look into whether Kelly has Asperger syndrome, a form of high-functioning autism. Asperger’s often goes undiagnosed until later in life, but its primary symptom is extreme social awkwardness and an inability to appropriately “read” the social cues of others. With special training, Kelly can learn how to modify her behavior and pick up on these social cues. But it’s unlikely she can do it on her own. A correct diagnosis can go a long way toward repairing her self-esteem. I hope her parents will get Kelly the help she needs to succeed in this world. -- Vermont Professor Dear Vermont: Thanks for your input. It is possible that Kelly has a mild form of Asperger’s, although she should see a medical professional to find out whether this is the case. If it is, she can contact for more information.

Allegations of abuse hit Furlong family ‘like a wrecking ball’ Dene Moore Canadian Press

VANCOUVER — Family members of former Vancouver Olympic CEO John Furlong — including his ex-wife — have condemned new allegations against him of domestic and sexual abuse. The family issued a statement Wednesday decrying the latest allegations made by reporter Laura Robinson, who is being sued by Furlong over an article she wrote about his time as a teacher at two Catholic schools in northern B.C. A statement of defence filed by Robinson

this week includes new claims alleging Furlong physically abused his former spouse and sexually assaulted a common-law partner. “These shocking allegations are without merit and portray a character whom none of us recognizes,’’ said the statement from Furlong’s children, Maria, Johnnie, Damien, Emma, Molly, their mother Margaret, and their stepmother Gail, along with Furlong’s 11 grandchildren. “We are being subjected to shame and embarrassment by misuse of journalistic privi-

lege and license.’’ The family said they felt compelled to speak out about the “serious, unsubstantiated’’ allegations contained in the court documents filed on Monday. In them, Robinson said she was contacted after the original article was published last fall by a former neighbour of John and Margaret Furlong when they lived in Prince George, B.C., from 1970 to 1972. The statement said “the plaintiff physically and psychologically assaulted and abused his wife.’’ She cites four specific incidents allegedly

committed against Margaret Furlong, including several loud arguments overheard by other residents. “The plaintiff and his wife argued regularly and, as the arguments escalated, the student residents could hear the plaintiff slap and hit his wife, who could be heard crying apologetically,’’ said the document. “On one occasion, the plaintiff grabbed his wife’s arm, twisted it tightly, and pushed her into their living quarters.’’ Robinson also said in the court documents

Toyota plant gets $34 million from Ottawa and Ontario C anadian Press

CAMBRIDGE, Ont. — Toyota will receive nearly $34 million from the federal and Ontario governments as it retools an assembly line at its plant in Cambridge, Ont., for the first Lexus hybrid produced outside of Japan. Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the government is proud to partner with Toyota. “The rebound of Canada’s auto-sector is one of this country’s biggest economic success stories of the past five years,’’ Harper said. “We are here because our government is committed to creating high-quality, well-paying jobs for hardworking Canadians.’’ Ottawa will kick in $16.9 million from the Automotive Innovation Fund, while the province will match that with an investment from its Strategic Jobs and Investment Fund.

Toyota will put $125 million toward the new assembly line to increase production of Lexus luxury cars, including the RX450h hybrid sport-utility vehicle. In addition to the Cambridge operation, Toyota has a newer factory in Woodstock, Ont. “Besides being the first hybrid vehicle assembled in Canada the RX 450 hybrid has been, up until now, only, and I want to emphasize that only built in Japan,’’ Harper said. “But that’s changing. In a short time, that fuel-efficient vehicle will be assembled right here.’’ Toyota announced last year that it would hire about 400 employees as part of a plan to increase Lexus RX production by 30,000 vehicles to 104,000, including 15,000 RX450h sport-utilities. The expansion will increase Toyota’s annual production ca-

B.C. invests $113 M for new home of Emily Carr University C ANADIAN PRESS

VANCOUVER — Emily Carr University of Art and Design is bursting at the seams so the provincial government is investing $113 million to help it relocate from its unique Granville Island location. The university’s home has been amid the blend of industrial and market activities on Granville Island for more than 30 years, but it will soon be moving to a former industrial area on Great Northern Way in Vancouver. As she announced the funding, Premier

Christy Clark told a crowd the university will be equipping students to do things that no one has even imagined yet. The university was originally designed for 800 students, but currently has 1,800 students. Emily Carr Chancellor Jake Kerr says space constraints have meant turning away 50 per cent of the qualified undergrad students and 75 per cent of their graduate candidates. Total cost of the project will be $134 million and it’s expected to be completed by July 2016.

pacity in Canada to 500,000 vehicles. The federal government renewed the $250 million investment fund earlier this year as part of a five-year plan to help the auto industry. The fund, established in the 2008 federal budget, requires companies to invest their own money to access government cash, which must be paid back in full. Only large-scale research and development projects valued at more than $75 million are considered. Ford, auto parts maker Magna International and Toyota have drawn money from the fund for projects in the past. The renewal of the fund follows a government bailout of the auto industry including billions to help General Motors and Chrysler.

Snowmobilers lead predators to caribou C ANADIAN PRESS

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. — Thrill-seeking snowmobilers east of Prince George, B.C., could be putting endangered mountain caribou at risk. Environment ministry officials and conservation officers are warning snowmobilers to stay out of clearly marked areas designed to protect the animals. Biologist Dale Siep says snowmobiles create well-packed highways for wolves, cougars and other predators. He says mountain

caribou rely on deep snow to create a barrier between them and their natural foes, but snowmobilers destroy that protection. Conservation officer Todd Hunter says the problem is growing, and warns violators could face stiff fines for venturing into protected areas. Officials estimate up to 98 per cent of the world’s mountain caribou live in British Columbia and 800 animals, roughly half the entire population, lives in the region east of Prince George.


A statement of defence filed by reporter Laura Robinson this week includes new claims alleging former Vancouver Olympic CEO John Furlong, above, physically abused a former spouse and sexually assaulted another. that she was contacted following publication of the original story by Furlong’s former common-law spouse, who told her “that she had been physically, emotionally and sexually abused by the plaintiff’’ while they lived together in Nanaimo, B.C., from 1979 to 1982. Among six individual allegations of abuse listed in the statement is an allegation that Furlong forced the woman to have non-consensual sex on many occasions. The original story published in the weekly

Georgia Straight newspaper alleged Furlong lied about his past as a volunteer teacher at Immaculata School in Burns Lake and Prince George College in Prince George. The school served predominantly First Nations students, and the article cited several former Immaculata students who accuse Furlong of physical and emotional abuse. None of the allegations has been proven in court. Furlong, a member of the Order of Canada,

is suing the Georgia Straight newspaper, Robinson, publisher Daniel McLeod and editor Charlie Smith, claiming the article is false and defamatory. The Furlong family called the claims by Robinson a self-serving, sensationalistic misuse of the media. “Obscene accusations and innuendo have now been printed nation-wide and nothing could possibly undo that,’’ said the statement. “The public should be deeply concerned at the power of a single journalist whose words can smash into a family like a wrecking-ball.

Obituaries Ruby Sinclair 1917 - 2013

An ordinary obituary begins with the basic facts of a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life: Ruby Laritta Sinclair, born September 27, 1917, died January 8, 2013. Aged 95. This is true, as is the fact that she leaves behind her three children: Gale, Brent, and Lorie, and 6 grandchildren: Chris Sinclair (Lauren), Megan Long (Alex), Julia Sinclair, Angelina Kling (Jonathan), Kaitlin Fontana (me) and Callie Fontana; and 3 great-grandchildren: Megan and Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Everett and Chelsea, and Chris and Laurenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hannah, and more on the way. These people are all hers in one way or another, and while this is ordinary genealogy, it is also extraordinary because this is the family of an extraordinary woman. So an ordinary obituary simply will not do. Here is the abridged version: She was born in the Alberta prairies to a Russian mother and an Irish father, both homesteaders; she was the second of seven children, six girls and a boy; she educated herself and sought opportunities to do so even after she was forced to quit school due to high blood pressure; and, in April of 1946, she married my grandfather William McEachern Sinclair, who she met at a post-war dance at Pennleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dance Academy (he was a radio operator during the war), and with him had her three children. William â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Grandpa Bill to us kids â&#x20AC;&#x201D; died in 1990.

Here was Ruby Sinclair in a nutshell: proud protector and defender of family, joyful support beam, strong and singular nurturer, and a very fun person to be around.

SASSY BLONDE, 30â&#x20AC;&#x2122;S

On paper, you can break almost anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life down into the bare facts. But if you look into a life it tends to be much bigger and more textured than any collection of words on paper can ever capture. I strongly believe that my grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life was even bigger and more richly textured than most, and that 95 more years could not contain her multitudes adequately.

She was a collection of statistics, facts and moments. But also much, much more. When I speak to others about her â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is something I do often, especially in the last few weeks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I summarize her thusly: She was 95. She grew up in a sod house on the prairies. She still had her driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license, her wits, her sense of humour. She had a better social life and more friends than most 25-year-olds I know. An entire community pivoted on her. She was kind, she was generous, and she loved her family and friends unsparingly. She was a feminist and a humanist and everything in between. Put simply: She was extraordinary. I will miss her, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m grateful I got to spend some of her last moments on earth just looking at her face. There will be a Celebration of Rubyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Life at the Cranbrook Alliance Church on Tuesday, January 29 at 10 am with reception to follow in the adjoining hall. In lieu of flowers, Ruby requested donations be made to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital Auxiliary, 13 - 24th Avenue North, Cranbrook, British Columbia, V1C 3H9 in her name.

ewspapers are not a medium but media available for everyone whenever they want it. They are growing and evolving to meet the consumer’s interests and lifestyles and incorporating the latest technological developments. This is certainly great for readers and advertisers. SOURCE: NADBANK JOURNAL SEPT/08

With so many advertising mediums dividing the attention of potential customers, newspapers remain the most effective source for reaching consumers. Why? Simply put, newspapers reach more people, more often. Highly portable and highly visible, newspaper ads go with people and stay with them. That means your business is more likely to be on their minds when they’re in the market for related products or services. When it comes to spending your advertising dollars, make the choice that’s tried and true: newspaper advertising works harder for you.

Court clears goat of vandalism ASSOCIATED PRESS

SYDNEY, Australia — Gary the flower-eating goat’s graze with Australian police has ended with his comedian owner getting the last laugh in court. A Sydney judge ruled Wednesday that neither the goat nor his owner could be found guilty of

vandalism over an August incident when Gary decided to snack on a flowerbed outside a city museum. Police at the time levelled a fine of $465 against owner Jim Dezarnaul, a comedian known as Jimbo Bazoobi. But man and goat got their day in court, with Gary arriving re-

splendent in a colorful hat on Wednesday. The brown-andwhite goat didn’t testify, but he had his own lawyer. Owner Dezarnaul said the case serves as a lesson to overzealous authorities, “and that’s ‘Don’t bite off more than you can chew.’’

Flaming cheese shuts down road tunnel in northern Norway ASSOCIATED PRESS

OSLO, Norway — A road tunnel in northern Norway will be shut for several weeks after a 27ton truckload of sweet goat’s milk cheese caught fire. Regional traffic department chief Geir Joergensen says flames engulfed the tunnel last week and

gases from the melting, brown load hindered firefighters. It took four days to put it out. The driver was not hurt and no other vehicles were in the 3.6-kilometre tunnel at the time. Joergensen said Wednesday that the tunnel near the small

Arctic municipality of Tysfjord, some 1,350 kilometres north of the capital, Oslo, likely will be closed for two more weeks. Goat’s milk cheese, a sweet delicacy with a high sugar and fat content, is an essential part of many Norwegians’ daily diet.

Vatican responds to concerns about ivory in religious icons ASSOCIATED PRESS

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican has pledged to do what it can to raise awareness about the illegal trade in ivory following a campaign by National Geographic magazine to expose the use of ivory in religious

icons. The Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, wrote an unusual and lengthy response to the magazine, correcting some errors in its reporting but agreeing that the Holy See was “absolutely con-

vinced that the massacre of elephants is a very serious matter’’ and could do something about it. Lombardi pledged to have Vatican Radio’s Africa programs report more on the fight against the illegal trade in ivory.

Would-be thief changes mind about robbery Clerk makes pizza for tearful man’s hungry family


HELENA, Mon. — A man who apparently summoned the courage to rob a U.S. pizza restaurant changed his mind as the clerk started to hand him money, broke down crying and ended up leaving with a pizza to feed his hungry family. Just after midnight Monday, a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a bandanna across his face entered a Papa John’s restaurant in Montana and handed the clerk a note demanding money. The cashier started

to comply, but then the man started crying and told the clerk he was just trying to provide for his wife and family. The clerk talked with him for a few minutes and offered to make the would-be thief a pizza and some chicken wings. As the man waited, a large knife fell out of his pocket. He did not threaten anyone with it. The man took the food and some soda and left on foot. Helena Police Chief Troy McGee praised the clerk’s actions.

“I’d say the clerk was pretty astute,’’ McGee said. “I mean, he knows how to talk to this person. Kind of commiserated with him a little. Talked to him about it and, you know, actually changed his mind about robbing the place. That was pretty good.’’ McGee said he’s not sure what he could charge the man with. “We’d like to locate the suspect,’’ McGee said. “We’d hate to have him do this again.’’ A Papa John’s manager declined to comment.
